Rate of Trump offenses outpaces House impeachment investigation

"The show we at nine eastern on m._s._n._b._c. rachel has the night off but she will be back next week. Now as we head into this holiday weekend all eyes are on hurricane doreen which is beating a path toward florida and gaining strength as it goes. The warm waters of the atlantic are cranking up the storm. Now now in the last half hour doreen was upgraded to a category four hurricane that means it is sustained winds of over one hundred thirty miles an hour. The latest models else have dorian making landfall late monday night or early tuesday morning but where it hits and how much destruction it causes are open questions for now the entire east coast of florida. All the way up to georgia are in the danger zone joining us now with the latest forecast is n._b._c. News meteorologist bill cairns bill. Thank you so much for being here tonight. What is the latest so much is changing so quickly so we knew this storm would become this category for who knows maybe even a category five in the days ahead beast. The big question was where is it going to go and there's big changes with that that i'm going to get to in a second but i gotta show you just how impressive the storm is right now zoomed in close. These are one minute images is from a satellite. We've compiled them together three hour loop. You could see it clears out the i very symmetrical. This is about as powerful as the storm that you'll see on satellite image. You just incredible incredible but it's still three days away from land so that's where we want. These powerful storms like this not like last year with the michael intensified this beast right before it went on shore so as long as we still have this wiggle wiggle room. I'm okay with it being this intense right now and as we mentioned hundred thirty mile per hour winds is still six hundred miles away from south florida so let's get into the good stuff now. Let's to get into the positive stuff. This is our latest upgrade updated computer models. He's committed about every six hours or so and all of a sudden these squiggly lines which yesterday were going straight straight through central florida all of a sudden we have about one two three four of these which never make landfall and the hurricane center saw this trend with the european model earlier in our american model closer toward the coast the storm taking its turn further out to sea so right now. The cone of uncertainty still goes ios in charleston south of miami include all areas over towards tallahassee but this trend is our friend. We want this offshore. I don't care if we have a cat five. That's off the coast and doesn't hit any land areas now for our friends in the northern bahamas. Unfortunately all these lines are dangerously close to you. You're going to get a direct hit from a powerful hurricane. We know that they're already getting outta there prepared for that but we'd like to avoid that for our frontier in areas from avar county all the way up to code and i mentioned bavard county because just in case it doesn't make that turn they've already issued the first mandatory evacuation starting sunday morning for the barrier islands. The mobile homes manufactured homes low-lying areas serious the places. You'd expect to evacuate i so we still have to prepare in case. This is a category four as it moves onshore but we're still at least a glimmer. I hope we can avoid this multibillion dollar weather disaster if we can keep it off the coast. Here's our american model our latest one this afternoon. It does bring it right along. The space goes does the kennedy space center right. Here's the melbourne area. It does bring it onshore but look how late this timing is. Now we keep delaying this thing and that's actually good though further we delay it the better chance it has going off the coast. I mean this is two a._m. Wednesday now i mean we now we're looking at saturday. All clear prep day sunday all clear prep day whether probably going downhill at the end of monday. Maybe tuesday hurricane conditions on the coast. I mean we keep delaying this more and more that gives us more time and then hopefully you can change the only thing that's kind of not the good news for friends in savannah charleston all the way up here to myrtle beach wilmington area the outer banks. This is the region now that still could deal with a pretty powerful awful. Storm won't be a cat for but we're still gonna be hurricane could be a category one or category two and we've to watch you know this is wednesday thursday into next week so joy you get the the idea here we are. We're going to respect this thing the unpredictability of the path. It's a huge storm right now. The category four could go to five or three the next couple of days. We're going to have to wait and see where that turn goes and this is the cone of uncertainty and if you're in that cone you prepare for it as it's coming to you and if i could ask you the squiggly lines before with all the different colors the european model that showed all the places that it can go. Is there a way to know which one is more likely. Can you explain the color coding yeah. Let me get back to that so that's that's the european model by the way which was the first one to stall at. I can kinda reverse through the maps here the lines that we watch here with all of the squiggly squiggly lines we have a lot of different weather computers that come up with these forecasts and what they do is the little different permutations you know. There are different agencies that do some some of them. Kirk gain warf is one of the ones that's the hurricane center they have this special model just for them and they do it a low resolution just on a specific area and so a lot of these different lines they do have grades on them to show you which ones are more accurate than others and some of the ones that really look at the most hurricane warf this yellow line. That's a very popular one one and that run right now still does bring it on shore the american model which is called <hes> a._p._n. Right here that's right along the coast but doesn't make landfall the canadian in model. They have a model to the yuki. Japan has won the case. A lot of people have these models and they take all the same data and they just have little different permutations with the physics that go into the models and that's why they spit out little differences so what we really look for joy. I try not to look specifically at this. What we look for is the trend in all of these and the train yesterday was south. People in miami were starting to get really worried and heading through central florida and now the trend is slower stall all it out and then make that big bend and if it can bend out to see it would really save so many people play my last question would be what what what does it depend john. Is that the warmth of the water. You know what actually could cause it to either hit or maybe off. If you pay attention in the summertime you may have heard something called the bermuda high. It's an area of high pressure in the summertime that sets up kind of over the top bermuda and it can provide the heat waves that happened on the east coast where there's a high pressure system. That's there and that's puts actually steering the storm so over this map here so bermuda's roy located right hand is here and the flow around that is going like this and so that's why the storm can't just hook and go up to the up to the north right now that high pressure kind of over here is what steering the storm if that weakens which now it looks like it's going to time we get to tuesday and wednesday it stops pushing the storm towards florida because that high pressure doesn't have the strength to push it anymore and that's twice going to slow down and could devastate the northern bahamas. That's what we're afraid of yesterday in florida so we'll have to see how far west it gets. We still have two days to go that high. Pressure system trend stronger. It's back into florida trends weaker then maybe we can just hook this thing headed to the north and out to sea so that's the key. Is this area of high pressure or your government. Taxes are paying for an aircraft to fly up in the atmosphere out here over the open atlantic. They take measurements then go into all of our computers to to try to give you the most accurate information we can't measure or joy every inch of the atmosphere it just don't have the technology to do that but when we get these information from the aircraft flying out here it goes into the models it gives us a more accurate forecast and your government taxes are doing that for you right now. Bill karen then we learned something tonight as well. Thank you very much. I really appreciate that. Thank you for explaining that are n._b._c. A._b._c. meteorologist thank you all right. The south florida unfortunately has quite a labor day hurricane history in two thousand sixteen it was hurricane her miami tearing through the sunshine and shine state over labor day weekend labor day twenty ten it was hurricane earl barreling up the coast in a way. It was gustav labor day weekend two thousand four. They got a storm. The size size of texas hurricane francis in eighty-five hurricane elena and in seventy nine hurricane david ripped through florida with wins they appeal the metal roof roof off of a building happy labor day but the worst labor day hurricane to hit florida happened before they gave storms human names back in one thousand nine thirty five when what became became known as the great labor day hurricane decimated the florida keys it was so powerful it derailed trains and wound up as the eighth deadliest hurricane in in continental u._s. History the sun-sentinel in south florida did the math at least seven hurricanes have hit florida over labor day weekend and it looks like the state might i have to add one more to the tallis heard hurricane. Dorian is on track to hit florida this labor day. Dorian is slowly churning through the atlantic where warm waters are turbo coaching the storm as we have been reporting just in the last hour it was upgraded to a category four meaning. It has sustained winds of over one hundred and thirty miles an hour. You're doreen is expected to make landfall late monday or early tuesday. The precise path of the storm has been hard to predict but the latest models have shifting slightly to the northeast the east as you just heard from bill karen's the national hurricane center predicts quote life threatening storm surges and devastating hurricane force winds the unpredictability means. It's still not clear where and when folks have to evacuate in miami where they are in the midst of what's called a king tied low-lying areas of already starting to flood and if that doesn't have you sitting up paying attention how about this this is footage of dory in from space all those glowing purple lights that is pockets of lightning inside aside the hurricane has rachel likes to say buckle up joining us now is keith james. He's the mayor of west palm beach florida mayor james. Thank you very much. I know you get very very busy easy for you tonight. So thank you for taking a little bit of time to be with us here tonight. George thank you for having me absolutely so we just heard bill cairns talk about the the unpredictability of this storm. There's still a possibility according to all squiggly lines. He showed us that west palm beach palm beach area could be hit since they're now are a couple of extra prep days. This thing could hit about two a._m. Wednesday morning as bill was just saying what are you guys taking advantage of that extra time to do to prepare the city any well what we're continuing to do is preach from the pulpit of preparedness and by that i mean we're continuing to get the message out to our residents <hes> that they need to prepare for this as a significant weather event they need to stock up on the essentials water food medicines gasoline and if we have a couple of extra days to to do that stocking up that's all the better we are preparing for the worst and in hoping for the best so i lived through a few hurricanes and living in florida for fourteen years and i remember going to which was also a category for it's pretty frightening <hes> for those who have not lived through it. It's pretty scary. How are the stores handling. I remember one of the things that happened was when we went out to try to stock up as you just said soares anti out really quickly all the water's gone. The bread is gone. The basics are gone. Our store is going to have time to get trucks into put fresh food and water etc in before before tuesday. We are very optimistic that that will be the case. <hes> the stores have already started emptying out. You know the one thing about a hurricane is generally before the hurricane mccain. It's nice weather so if we get a couple more days of nice weather that should enable the the major stores to stock up and again what i don't don't want to happen though is for residents get complacent as they all know. It's never going to happen. This is a major weather event residents. Please take it seriously and the other issue that i can recall just from being down there with gas lines people not being able to get gas for the car because if there is a major evacuation is it better for people to go ahead and stock up on gas stock up on extra gasoline or do you worry about long lines and thick lines of cars and people we'll try and get on the road as the storm is coming in well. We don't know what the evacuation plans are yet. Palm beach county will be handling that and we will abide by those does the county handles it because evacuation routes are outside of our city limits. The gas lines of already started. That's one advantage of having more time is that people will have an opportunity tune awfully to find the station and listened gas supplies are getting low as well but on i'm proud and happy to say that our governor has authorized the gas astros escorted by the florida highway patrol so they will be hustling into the various stations as well to deliver to restock one of the things that <hes> you know i hear a lot of sort of commentary on from folks who worry about the state of of immigration in this country is that people who are undocumented are sometimes afraid to flee. They're afraid to evacuate. They're afraid to participate in what could be life saving measures because of their immigration status as mayor west palm beach. Can you please advise what what is do people who are undocumented and their families have anything to fear if they evacuate and would they be able to take advantage of the services that citizens are able to take advantage any child in the event that the storm as bad as it could be absolutely. They are encouraging them to take advantage of shelters. If you don't have homes review evacuation zone absolutely not we're not gonna discriminate because someone is an immigrant at this point in time our highest priority is to save lives and and we don't care what color what country of origin those lives affront from as the mayor of the city on concerned that every citizen every resident of my city city is safe insecure after the storm. Thank you very much surfacing that keith james the mayor of west palm beach florida. Thank you so much joy personal privilege there. If i may may yes sir i know my mother's watching and i apologize for being an informant outfit but i've been working in the you'll see all day so mom. I'm sorry i should have been in suit and tie and then she's a big fan of yours was joy. How well thank you very much. Tell her thank you. I hope you guys absolutely stay safe and you're right. My godmother would get on me if i wasn't dressed up for t._v. But i'm sure your mom will understand you working hard sir. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Thank you all right. We're going to be keeping an eye on hurricane doreen tonight and all weekend long and into next week to we also have a lot of political olitical news to bring you tonight. A lot of stories ahead now with the hurricane bearing down. Donald trump cancelled his trip to poland saying that he's doing so to monitor the storm and because he pulled the plug on that trip the president is also conveniently enough skipping meeting with another world leader that is raising eyebrows. We're going to have more on that later. In the show now rather rather than flying to europe trump took off for camp david where he will be on storm watch but not before bragging about how totally prepared they were for hurricane doreen to hit puerto rico and how he is not at all concerned about whether his private club mar-a-lago which is in the path of the storm will get molly waft the rest of the state and we also have news tonight about a story that this show has been following all week the story of the trump administration suddenly telling immigrants who need lifesaving medical care that they can no longer have a medical deferment from being deported telling they have thirty three days to get out of the country that store has continued to develop and we're going to get the latest from a member of congress who's been advocating advocating for a constituent of his on this issue. We're going to take a look at the surprise horse race news of the week and why senate republican mitch mcconnell seems a little bit antsy z. about his majority. All of that and more is ahead on the show tonight so please stay with us hi. It's katie deter want to keep up with m._s._n._b._c. While you're on the go subscribe to the m._s._n._b._c. daily newsletter. You'll get the best of what you've missed. During this unprecedented era of news news text m._s._n._b._c. to six eight six six to subscribe so we continue to keep an eye on hurricane doreen which has just been upgraded upgraded to a category four storm as it heads towards florida and that's already had one consequence in washington d._c. The house judiciary committee has cancelled its plans to come back early from the summer recess to work on a package of gun control legislation a plan announced earlier in the month in the wake of mass shootings in el paso texas in dayton ohio the committee will now have to squeeze in any new gun legislation along everything else that they have on their plate when the full house returned september ninth and this because of course the same committee that's been asking for documents and testimony in an ongoing inquiry into whether to recommend impeaching the president and since they left for summer break take the list of things they may need to consider just been getting longer and longer. I mean consider for a moment the week that donald trump has had just this past week. It started auto erotic largely incoherent performance at the g seven conference in france. There was the moment when trump was asked if he if he attended the meeting at the g. seven it was about climate change. He responded by saying it hasn't happened yet and it was going to be next it in fact had just happened and he wasn't there. Then the white house press secretary soot out a formal statement explaining that the reason trump had not gone to the climate session was because instead he was having bilateral meetings with the leaders of india and germany well. Here's a picture of a client meeting. There's the leader of germany. There is the leader of india. There is trump's empty chair. Trump did not skip the climate meeting so that that he could meet with them. They the meeting and he wasn't there then there. Was this worrying exchange. It sure thank you have second thoughts convert. Everything sure i have second thoughts about everything trump's top economic advisers to go on t._v. Almost immediately to say the president hadn't heard the question or or actually had the opposite of what you actually heard also there was this johnny col- lists trae people breath and say let's get back to the table food for about calling referred to win the next round of negotiations <music> very very very good for okay so this is where the deep voice narrator comes in and says in fact there were no calls from c._n._n. Today aides privately conceded the phone calls. Trump described didn't happen the way he said they did. Instead to officials said trump was eager to project <unk> optimism that might boost markets and conflicted comments from china's vice premier with direct communication from the chinese which honestly if the president in the united states lied about phone calls with china in order to boost the market. That seems pretty bad but it's probably better than him. Just making phone calls or maybe having said calls take place only in his mind. I don't know pick your poison. Speaking of white house aides cleaning up weird pronouncements and lies from the president. Here was one headline this week. The white house clarifies that melania trump has not met kim jong good so trump has volunteered to reporters apropos of nothing quote. The first lady has gotten to know kim jong. John and i think she would agree with me. He's a man with a country that has tremendous potential quotas trump mentioned his wife. A camera cut to milan in the audience who cut her head slightly. They look somewhat quizzically. At the president several hours later as the president and first lady flew back to washington the white house press secretary issued a statement quote while the first lady hasn't met kim jong. The president feels like she's gotten to know him. Okay and of course trump wrapped up the g seven by using his presidential initial podiums do a giant infomercial for one of his golf clubs and why it would be the perfect place to hold the next g seven what she wants to turn back into the g. eight by inviting vladimir putin arou- we have a series of magnificent buildings. We call them bungalows. They each hold all from fifty to seventy very luxurious rooms with magnificent. Is we have incredible. Conference rooms incredible restaurants. It's like it's like such a natural natural and we have many hundreds of acres so that in terms of parking in terms of all of the things that you need the ballrooms are among the biggest in florida the best the biggest ballrooms in florida. Could you not host the next gathering of world leaders there. I mean you know near the airport. There are things we call. Bungalows putting would be so comfortable there unless you think that was just a wildly inappropriate sales pitch or an off the cuff trump thought the white house twitter feed captioned those comments as as an official announcement quote president trump shares the location of the next seven summit hosted by the united states which would be fantastic unconstitutional if the president were to force foreign leaders to put money directly into his pocket by making them stay at his own hotel the rest of the week brought news that donald trump has ordered his subordinates to begin seizing private land and even break the laws they have to in order to get his border wall bill and that he will pardon them afterwards towards if they get into trouble and the news that his administration is ordering the deportation of six sick children receiving lifesaving medical care in the united states and we will have more on that later in the show today trump issued this strange and confounding tweet that appears to contain u._s. Government satellite image of a damaged ronnie indian rocket launch site. There's been no explanation from the white house but experts tell n._b._c. News it is likely it classified image. N._b._c.'s andrew mitchell reported today quote legally. The president has the authority to declassify what he wants but that does not answer the question of why he did in whether it is wise outside. Experts are dumbfounded as reports evening where the photo came from trump said quote. You'll have to figure that one out yourself okay. Now i know every week is clown carful of crazy these days and it's easy ford all kind of start feeling like background noise mealy really unsettling background noise but if if democrats on the house judiciary committee have said that some of the things that trump has done just this past week like his move to hold the next g seven is golf club and his offer of pardons hardens to administration officials who break the law to build his border wall that some of those things ought to be part of their investigation into whether to recommend impeachment the number of house democrats in favor of an impeachment impeachment inquiry keep steadily rising it is now one hundred thirty four lawmakers well over half of the democratic caucus and consider this latest headline from the great dahlia lipoic legal legal correspondent. It's slate. Let's compare donald trump's week. She writes to the impeachment articles against richard nixon clinton and johnson quote quote. If one were to consider the articles of impeachment against the three sitting presidents who store we faced impeachment proceedings not only as trump clearly achieved all of them he actually now achieves leaves most of them in under a week so here's the question if the house judiciary committee has to investigate all the president's potentially impeachable offenses before it can recommend impeachment in the president keeps committing new potentially impeachable offenses every week. How does this investigation ever end joining us now. How is a member of the house judiciary committee congressman. David selene a rhode island great to have you with us tonight sir. Thanks for having me so we're at one hundred and thirty four house house democrats now favoring a pizza. That's well over half of the caucus does that now reach the threshold where leadership agrees with those of you who want to proceed toward an impeachment a formal impeachment. Does that mean that house leadership is now onboard. Well obviously increasing number number of the members of the democratic caucus have come out in support of the judiciary committee proceedings. The chairman has made it very clear in the last pleading that was filed in court that we are in the midst of a preceding as to whether or not we will recommend to the full house articles of impeachment against the president so we're in the midst of this it will require us to continue to bring witnesses before the committee to seek the production of documents so that we will be able to make a recommendation to the full house the chairman said by the end of this is year as you point out every week or every day it feels as if there are additional things that require examination those will be added to the judiciary agenda and we'll look at those things but there will come a point. I presume that we will have enough to make a determination as to whether or not articles of impeachment should be certainly the president should benefit by continuing attenuating to commit impeachable offenses and preventing us from ever taking action so i think there will come a point when the judiciary committee will make a judgment based on the evidence presented to the committee and the witnesses we've heard from in the documents we reviewed as to whether or not we recommend to the full house articles of impeachment against the president does does do those who now support proceeding toward impeachment include the speaker well. I would never presume to speak for the speaker. I think she's made it very clear that she believes the president. President must be held accountable that no one is above the law and that we should continue the robust oversight of the committee and that's what the judiciary committee is doing obviously the speaker will weigh in was to whether or not we ultimately take up articles of impeachment before the committee on the floor but our work remains. We need to continue to bring witnesses before the committee litigation because the president is it has directed witnesses not to come to not produce documents so we are litigating these things to be sure we get the evidence we need to make informed judgments but let's talk about some of the potential articles article for the potential things that you will investigate we now have donald trump pushing to use his private club as a hosting site for the g. seven which by the way would put global leaders. There's in florida at the height of hurricane season which doesn't sound quite safe. An or wise is that one of the things that you believe should be investigated as a potential article article of impeachment pas issue. Yeah i mean this is one more way that this president is attempting to enrich himself his family in his real estate empire by using the office of the presidency. This is a terrible abuse of power. It's abusive of his office. It's a ah seeking gain from being president of the united states which we've never seen this before. This is a president who sees this as a money making enterprise as do members of his family alley. That's not what the presidency is four and to require foreign leaders to participate in this summit only by paying down trump and his his organization would be completely inappropriate britt likely illegal and certainly violation of the emoluments clause so that will be added to the list. I'm sure of the ways that this administration and this president has enriched himself that the juche committee meanwhile review. We want to be sure that the president is there. Any elected official is acting. They're acting in the best interest of the american people not because there's some financial gain that they're getting the company their families getting it violates a number of conflict of interest prohibitions. It certainly violates the minus clause in the constitution but this is just one more example of the president who's using this office as a money making enterprise yeah indeed we didn't even get to the attorney general paying him to throw his holiday party there but we can talk in another time absolutely congressman david silly member of the house judiciary committee. Thank you so much for your time really appreciate it. I pleasure thank you up next right here tonight. A member of congress who's fighting into keep one of the young people in america who the trump administration wants to kick out even though it will likely mean that she will die that is next stay with us. It has been yet another week of horror and confusion in this country this time for immigrant kids with cancer kids with cystic dick fibrosis kids with genetic diseases kids with heart transplant a week ago. The trump administration announced that immigrants living in this country under an exception to receive medical care would now have that status taken away under this new policy. All those immigrants with medical deferments were told to ditch their doctors ditch there medicine all the things keeping them alive and leave the country within thirty three days or be deported when this policy. I made the news this week. The administration said the medical firmin's would not actually be ending. They just be handled by an entirely different part of the government by ice which apparently was news to ice according to multiple reports no one the trump administration told is that it was now their responsibility to keep these kids alive and today we got even more clarity on what is intends to do with this mystifying mystifying new policy spokesperson for is told w._v._u. Our radio in boston quote ice does not exercise discretion on a categorical basis to exempt entire hire groups of aliens from the immigration laws enacted by congress in other words. No ice will not be taking applications for medical deferrals. That program looking for sick immigrants in this country is over full stop today. The slow trickle of outrage over this story turned into a flood one hundred twenty seven members of congress have signed this letter to the trump administration today demanding an explanation next week on friday the house oversight committee will hold hearings on this they are calling on the acting director of ice and the acting director of citizenship and immigration services the agency that i sent the families a letter telling them they had to leave after a week in which families families have that have struggled for information answers or hope at least now the prospect of seeing lawmakers put their questions directly to the trump administration and joining us now. It's congressman mark. This only a democrat from california and carson. Dasani is on the house oversight committee which is overseeing those hearings next week. He's also east about wessels. Congressman eastbound is the young woman rachel profiled on the show last night who under this new policy will be deported and therefore lose access to her lifesaving medical treatments as a result of this this new policy and kirkman. Thank you so much for your time tonight. My pleasure does congress in addition to holding hearings. I think is important. Does congress have the power or to stop the trump administration from removing these these these these immigrants who need medical care in the united states well. I have a question of where they got. The authority where the president got the authority to do this anyway so we're trying to identify that law a obviously as usual. The administration is not being helpful. We didn't find out about this these myself myself until my constituent nam came in to show me the letter that they had gotten a week before and isabel obviously your constituent what can be done. What is your office trying due to help her specifically well. We're trying to do everything <hes> lots of media trying to make people aware of the injustice of her situation. She came to this country at invitation of the federal government the f._d._a. To be in a treatment for her rare disease <hes> and she she came when she was seven. She's now twenty four. Her participation has helped not just yourself but many other people with her disease. She can't get the treatment. If she's forced to go back guatemala. The letter said they would be forced to go back back to guatemala by september fourteenth so we're running against that time and trying to get information from these departments has been very frustrating to say the least if someone dies is as a result of this policy what will congress well isabelle's doctor who is a very well nationally respected a doctorate u._c._s._f. Here in the bay area has written a letter that said she will die <hes> that she's he said more diplomatically that her life will be short because she won't be able to get the treatment that she gets for one day every week so this is intense treatment <hes> so it's really just a horrible situation. We have sent letters. <hes> senator harris has joined a letter with me. <hes> we've been on that as a co author on the letter you referred to we are introducing a bill on monday specifically for her <hes> but mostly we're trying to get attention to somebody in leadership in the white house to realize what they're doing their sentencing this young woman who's been here illegally <hes> and was invited invited by the federal government. There's sentencing to death and getting someone in the white house realize what they're doing. One presumes they know what they're doing right and if one presumes that because their cruelty he has been pretty open. If you have agencies like ice that are perpetrating this cruelty on people we just learned that very committee staffers were prohibited from going in and performing oversight over facilities that the department of homeland security is operating holding migrants. There was a story apparently that came out of some of these facilities that one detainee told was leads at a border patrol agent told a child who had spilled soup that the child would not receive more food unless the child drank the spilled soup off the floor. This is in dehumanizing and despicable. It was in another country. We'd be calling for the u._n. To go in should congress keep funding ice and d._h._s. This is the way they're behaving toward human beings towards children why not just cut the funding yeah well. That's what we tried to in the supplemental bill. Many of us put more restrictions on that four point six billion we sent <hes> because we were concerned about how they were going to spend the money and of course we got a battle with the senate and some of us in the caucus <hes> over that so we have to try to hold them accountable. I'm of the opinion that until a federal judge holes secretary in contempt of of federal court and put them in jail. Nothing's going to happen. We have a sociopath in the white house and he acts like a mobster mobster rather than the president carson marked asani a democrat from california on the house oversight committee on thank you very much for being here. We will definitely keep an eye on what you all are doing and we hope that you'll also keep surprised as this story develops. Thank you very much absolutely thank you. Thank you sir all right still ahead a story. That rachel wanted to get to last night but didn't have time for it that is next while everything else was going on in the news. Donald trump cancelled a trip that he was supposed to leave for this weekend to poland. The president said that he isn't going because of the hurricane that is bearing down on the east coast of florida one of the consequences of trump cancelling this trip is not not just that trump won't be in poland meeting with the president of poland but he also said to me on this trip with the president of ukraine that was the plan but now that meeting is cancelled too two and that may be just the way it goes hurricane shows up when you call if you're meeting with the president of poland in the president of ukraine or might be more consequential than that ukraine ukraine of course is the country that russia invaded in two thousand fourteen and from which russia seized the part of ukraine that is crimea. It was the first time since world war two that at the borders of a country in europe were changed by outside military force in response to russia invading and seizing crimea and waging a low grade war in eastern eastern ukraine ever since western nations led by the united states took steps to punish russia there were strict new sanctions against the against the russian oil and gas industry for example. It really hurt the country's fragile economy the g eight countries decided they would become the g seven instead kicking russia and putin out the u._s. Congress passed military aid package for ukraine to help them resist russian military aggression. All of that happened after russia invaded ukraine in in two thousand fourteen under president obama and then over the last few days. We've seen the current president donald trump repeatedly and insistently argue that russia should be eh back in to the g seven even though the reason they were kicked out was ukraine and what russia's doing to ukraine hasn't changed at all and politico dot com reported. Where did this week that trump has also blocked the delivery of military aid to ukraine that military aid that was passed into law by congress is the very same military aid for for ukraine. There was supposed to help quote keep rush at bay and yet donald trump has reportedly been slow walking in all year and now if he keeps blocking the ukraine aid through the end of next month through the end of september the money will disappear for the year and you know would love that russia. Maybe it's all completely coincidental. I mean there really is a monster storm coming but it is all happening at once and it all has consequences just happened to be very good for vladimir. Putin wouldn't who donald trump just keeps pleasing and appeasing for whatever reason we'll be right back a weird thing <unk> happened last week when mitch mcconnell who styles himself as the grim reaper of the congress put up a bit in which he the senate majority leader was suddenly defending the filibuster because quote america needs the senate to be the senate recognize he wrote. It may seem odd that a senate majority leader opposes a proposal to increase power certainly curious that liberals confusing this moment when americans have you elected republican majorities three consecutive times accounting to attack the minorities powers now of course our last memory of mitch mcconnell using the filibuster the busters from when he was minority leader and he used it against president obama more than anyone had used since the nineteen sixties when the utilize were right wing segregationist southern democrats and the target was civil rights legislation. It seems like it could be that. The republican party's lead attack dog and congress is starting to worry about maintaining the senate majority and he might even preparing his team to operate from the minority again just this week we saw thing that could make that possibility more likely there was already ascendancy up in georgia with first term republican incumbent david purdue up for reelection in two thousand twenty then on wednesday all of a sudden boom two seats are open in georgia three term republican senator johnny isakson accent announced he will retire at the end of the year because of health challenges in terms of twenty twenty this means that his seat will be up at a special election next november meaning georgia. We'll have to senate races on the ballot so now with the combination of republicans weirdly seeming to retire all over the place and mitch mcconnell's uncharacteristic lack of overconfidence. It's looking like like maybe democrats really do of a shot at flipping the senate in two thousand twenty democrats obviously have to defend their sheriff seats to perhaps especially the one they now hold in alabama. Thanks to the defeat of roy moore you remember him but having both of those senate races up in the state of georgia which give democrats to bite at that apple or just probably a better analogy. It's pretty big deal. Democrats only need to net four seats to flip the senate. Georgia already trending blue could be a game changer join us now political analysts and he'll t._v. Host jamal simmons jamal all worked for president bill clinton and was an advisor to president barack obama's two thousand eight campaign jamal. Thanks for being here tonight. You know if you think about george having having worked with a certain senator max cleland how yeah how likely is it that democrats can pick up one or even two seats when both are up i mean everybody needs to sober up just a little bit still. This is still georgia. Georgia is now a tipping point. I mean you saw this stacey. Abrams raise where where i mean frankly i think she won that race. I think she won that race but the current governor probably did a few things that kept him in the longer and he should have been. It's going to be a tough race as but democrats win and having the second seat may help. Here's why i was talking to a couple of friends down there today. One of the things that could happen is you could end up there. No african americans running forgave it producing but you may have a couple of african americans who get into the jani isaac and if that happens then you have an african american on the ballot in november of two thousand twenty while the presidential race is going on and you might have a surge in turn out that could bring one of those senators over the finish line and let's be clear that one of those african workers will not not me stacey abrams. She's made. She has made that very clear that she's not going to do it but there's some other names that are out there. People like michael thurmond who's been longtime state wide selected in the in the state. There are few people who are out there rafael more not coup as a pastor and ebeneezer baptist church. Sorry my earpiece coming out but rafael. We're not going to get in so there are a few people who might do it and look big picture because let's say democrats even one of the two they need net for. Let's say alabama is a tough race to win a second time because trump probably gonna clear that state by twelve points or so but you've got besides georgia you've got north carolina which democrats have managed to win statewide and the governor's race arizona which they've managed to win statewide the other the senate seat. There's the martha mcsally lost last time is up. You've got taxes. Were bad or work came within three point. You've got colorado which looks republican looks doomed main with a republican looks doomed how how are democrats looking in terms of being able to get that net four or even just get tied senate and if they win the white house they get the v._p. To break the tie well if you think back this is this is the senate election that has all those seats from twenty fourteen when the republicans did so well when they were running. Barack obama was president so all those republican senators unders are now up this year and so what you really may have is something that people didn't expect which is that the democrats may be able to take an winston it we shall see certainly is a motivator for a lot of democratic voters because they have been talking sending a lot. Jamal simmons political analyst hilty behoves man. Thank you very much really appreciate you joining us tonight those around me. How can we can thank you very much to all right up next the next bit that might give us some indication of what will happen on election day twenty twenty and it has nothing to do with the next debate. Stay with us. The there is a one more race that you should keep an eye on if you're looking for early hints at which way the political headwinds or blowing ahead ahead of next year's presidential election north carolina is holding a do over election for the congressional seat in the ninth district. It happens in less than two weeks now. Here's what you need. I don't know about that. Donald trump won this district by nearly twelve points in two thousand sixteen when this seat was up for grabs last year the unofficial result results so that the republican a baptist preacher remarked harris winning by a razor-thin margin of nine hundred five votes but the reason we don't have official results from last year's race and the reason isn't this do over election is even happening is because the state elections board throughout the results from last year after evidence emerged that consultant tied to the republicans campaign allegedly allegedly committed extensive ballot-fraud the republicans consultant was arrested back in february and has been charged with multiple felonies. The republican candidate from last time or kerris decided not to run in the redo. So this time you have the same democrat marine veteran named dan mccready running against a republican state senator named dan bishop so it's the same democrat who barely lost last time almost flipped a congressional seat in a district trump won by double digits. Naturally a lot of democrats crats are hoping that this time hopefully without significant ballot-fraud working against him. Dan mccreevy just might win but democrats are not the only ones who think that might happen republicans right up and into right up and into including donald trump or worried enough about this seat that a ton of them are swooping in to campaign for dan bishop the sweepers include house minority leader kevin mccarthy vice president mike pence donald trump junior and the president himself who set to appear at at a campaign rally the night before the election the latest polling in the race just out today from inside elections shows that the democrat dan mccreevy's actually ahead by four points that election is happening happening on september tenth mark your calendars and that does the press tonight rachel we back next week and you can catch me tomorrow at ten a._m.

"In south florida morning show with jennifer. Ross in bill adams on newstalk eight fifty. Mtl would like to see justice served at her held accountable for everything that she's taken from. Must that's katie right. It's the mother of the victim here in everything dante. Right is his name in his dad's spoke yesterday to lost my son. He's never coming back. I can't accept that a mistake. That's not that doesn't even sound right. You know this officer has been on the force route. Twenty six plus twenty six years. I can't accept that. But what both of them also called for was peace. Because it doesn't do anybody any good to riot and loot in their own community to do this and that's what his mother said. She said how does burning a police car burning a building. Get my son back or find justice for my son and she says it doesn't so stop doing it but apparently no one listen because how many forty people were arrested. What did that cops as some other. The police chief said some cop got hit in the head with a brick. Yeah like wow when. They gave me a hard time about the riots. Yeah well they're not riots bill. Don't this was unbelievable. Either journalists reporters in the area probably based. I'm sure out of minneapolis. So they're in In brooklyn center telling him what's right and what's not the police. Chief dispersal order and then of attending dispersal order issue well sealed in canisters and gaps yet. Just raise clear. I was front and center at the protests at the at the right We did not. Oh it's no right and that's no riot. It was a protest. Now that's no right okay. Windows are smashed the rocks bricks frozen bottles thrown at the cops but not daddy definitive zoning. I was being the officers that were putting themselves. In harm's way we're being pelted with frozen cans of pop. They're being belted with concrete blocks. That's right wow sorry you know doesn't do anybody really hurts the 'cause when he can't even call it a riot because then it's always unjustified like his his his parents said dante writes parents said doesn't do anybody any good now and if if it was just a peaceful protests come forty people were arrested right. Hello how come buildings were burning. It's crazy it's like stop. Okay just stop burning places down. It's not i just don't get it just don't understand it hopefully Things will quiet down today. Plus you get the george floyd trial today with the air derek. Chauvin their his side is supposed to start presenting their case. So it's the defense's turn you've heard from the prosecutor so far. So now it's the defense's turn and they'll retry to rebut everything that's already been presented. So you're going to hear just the opposite of what you've heard for the past week and a half and that's gonna upset people because they don't want to hear that so rough bad bad timing on everything. I think the mayor even said that didn't he. He's never good timing cause never good timing for a tragedy. Obviously and it's not going to be need can't bring them back. Yeah and i'm sure. In the moment her finger press that trigger. She regretted shooting that shooting him. Yeah i always gonna do now. Well now you know. This kid's life is over. The appearance lives ruined her. Life is ruined probably. our whole family's life is lives ruined. So i it's it's interesting by the way The the other big news that broke this morning was as johnson and johnson. They've halted the use of the vaccine until they can take a better. Look at wellington just announced they had clinic today They were gonna give out. Four hundred doses. They just shut it down. Yeah i keep being production use of it can cause a press conference coming up at ten o'clock today. Hopefully more answers what bothers me is the handful of people that had apparently symptoms or blood clots themselves couple of weeks after getting the shot. That's concerning yeah in. And if i if. I'm a woman and i'm between eighteen and forty eight and say i just got this thing last week. I'm thinking great you know am am i in the same realm as these other women. I guess what they find out now or common denominators between them if there are any and if there aren't then there's more questions so i'm kind of hoping that maybe they're all you know I know five seven one hundred and fifty pounds each. And that's what happens you know. Or it's they got the same blood type or you know their their moms and dads came from the same part of europe. I don't know there's you hope there's a common denominator and then you can hope they can fix it. I don't know what do they do with. Blood clots blood thinner. Is that what they usually do. A radio with my mom. 'cause she she used to have all the time they put like little little. They're like nets they caught it before it hit her heart or head. Oh yeah they go right in the implant them. I don't know what you call those things. But they she had a ton of they stopped the blood clot. Yeah they just like a screen would stop a fly skewed. Did wow for a long time. I don't know stuff though it. It really get answers in about an hour. Hopefully we can only hope in an hour right okay. We'll be listening. Ten o'clock we'll see in the meantime more lockdowns. That's what the cdc says for michigan. Not only that. Let's go back to last spring. Is anybody on this planet. Want to go back to where we were less spring. Are you kidding me. Oh yeah and it's so hard for us to relate because in florida we were kinda like unlock down for what a couple of months at that. It wasn't a complete lockdown like the public. God we're open home depot was open. There are a bunch of places still open and in michigan. They shut down everything and you had to have a special reason to go to the grocery store. I think they had a delivery only or pick up. Only it was one of the most severe down states. do you remember in was it lansing. They had those car and truck parades because people who live nowhere near urban area. So there's no reason why we should be a statewide lockdown member of member. The parades yeah. It's kind of like if you've ever driven through any of these states you know. If you've ever driven through texas you can go through texas. I mean for hours and not see a house. All you see is land and it. Somebody's land its farmland parts of michigan of the same way. Ohio's like that a lot of the mid western states. They're farmers so you got a farmer who sits on fifty thousand acres going. Wait a minute. You're telling me i can't go to the break. He after i get off my tractor and bias six pack when he nuts. And it's going to happen. So there's cases and big rich gretchen. Whitmer the governor. She's asking for more vaccine. Can't blame her there instead of that. That's not the answer. Cdc ratio walinsky says. Now you need a lockdown more. The answer to that is to really close things down to back basics to go back to where we were last spring Last summer and two things down to flatten occurs. It didn't work. They work the first time. You wanna try okay the wizard. What is the definition of insanity trying the same thing over and over again expecting a different outcome. Okay so if it didn't work the first or the second or the third. How many states shut down and they had outrageous cases on new york california michigan same situation. It's it's crazy. Texas cases going down. Florida by the way yesterday Single digits death gout because of covid for the first time in months single. We're getting better and winning. And we're saving businesses and they're talking about more lockdowns in michigan. Why don't you let people go outside and get some fresh air. Yeah he got locked up spreading the virus to other people. It doesn't work now and a lot of these other states the way they're getting snow like in in idaho today or something. Those those states like south dakota north dakota. It's snowing april. You don't think about it but it snow in another state so and in many cases maybe they couldn't go out if they wanted to. But still i would have gone out in a blizzard in rhode island if rhode island was just as bad mess look at massachusetts when you went logan airport. You didn't see anybody when their highways were empty. That's an mvp ever driven anywhere near boston. You know how crazy it is. And that's why we all drive like nuts because we learn how to drive in boston. But that's besides the point at. That's nuts that you went that far. And didn't you know there wasn't a soul and logan that's if you've ever been through that it's crazy scary thing of all lateness up second year. But the scariest thing of all. They realized how easily it was to take people's freedoms away how easily we just bent over for this. Oh you're right next time. this comes around. They know exactly how to do it. Yeah well you know they gotta do say going to die if you walk outside. Stay inside works that way. Well we had a Amazing sight in the sky over west palm last night. There is pretty cool. I wish i'd seen it. And i mean in person. I've only seen the video from channel twelve. It was so they're saying it's a meteor break but then it exploded is normal. Well it's burning up. Oh that's what happens when it comes to the bat mr pluses going fast sixteen and a half that usually usually minute space to seventeen and a half thousand. So yeah it's probably decreasing in speed so sixteen thousand fifteen thousand miles an hour. That's pretty fast. But what a shot though. What timing to you. Get this right on the. Cbs twelve camera while the guys doing a report. Because oh my gosh. What is that in the sky. Whoa forgot what his story was. Stopped right there and said what i'm doing is far more important far more exciting. We got it on the morning. Show blog for checking. It's pretty wild. It was really wild and then on top of it was. It was pretty close. What did he say. It was like ninety seven hundred miles around. They're like wow that's usually they're like ancient away. This thing was really close but wait a minute. Did they not talk about it. Because it wasn't big enough to cause concern is they named it. They knew about they knew it. Was that close. No know. I don't know they've had other things like one hundred thousand miles away the like a close brush with but that's usually like a big huge meteorite things that like the size of a city. That's about this forever center or like the member last week or the week before it was parts of the spacecraft space x came back remember they said oh. It was just spacex junk. Burn up coming on in back into reentry. I'm like okay. It's a nice. They're real loosey goosey with what they report to the asteroids coming they obviously knew. This thing was close. Okay did you see the movie asteroid. If you knew one was coming what would you do. It's going to be sheer panic. I would get that news. And i'd be like yeah. Sounds about right way things would not. I'm telling you that wouldn't surprise me one bit. Oh dear no not one bit say that. say that. i'd say we're trying to lighten things up coming up next but this is going to send us into fits of rage this survey. Well you know. And i i think pop culture but i think they do it just to send you into a fit of rage. It's click bait. It is because i it's it's it's either that or insane all right. Just think about this the most iconic movie theme song or theme music that you know of narrow what it is. The i know the one that popped in my mind already instantly i think of one or two or three all from the same composer by the way It's an exciting. His stuff is well. It's there but sporadic. And i'll just say real quick to gin and i were going over this earlier. He was incensed. I almost left the studio because everything was saying some of the greatest music of all time in cinema history. Not it's it's just infuriating top ten. So let's leave it at that. Prepare to be. It's so bad coming up next to drive up the road that some other stuff all next florida morning jobs jenna. Bill cuba dear stuck eight fifty l. Lv south florida morning show. There's gender diener. Bill cairns news coming up in nine minutes and boy. This is escalating quickly. So coming up in a little over half are at ten o'clock as the big. The big news conference supposedly jan. They're going to tell us. Why and more details. And an hubby gonna get this johnson and johnson vaccine pause going pausing the use okay and they all the states are now going to have to figure out how to get that done now. As part of this federal health officials are going to set up some sort of a site where they want people who have had the johnson and johnson backs to report their side effects. This is a whole different animal because now this is going to be one massive nationwide data collection point. Well they said. Seven million americans oriented received the johnson and johnson site. They're basing this pause on six women and although say between the ages of eighteen and forty eight who all developed a rare condition of a certain type of blood clot two weeks after they got the injection. See the two weeks interest me. That's what makes you wonder. What is it doing to your system in those two weeks exactly. That's what i was. Brewing is what it's doing so I i in. How do you know you have a blood clot anybody that i know. Is that a blood clot is done one of two things one. They died instantly which is horrible or to get like severe pain in their leg. And they're like god that. I want my girlfriend. Had a huge blood clot in her legs. She thought it was from. She was vacuuming and she ran into the table side of the table and she thought that's what the pain was so she ignored it and she says it's getting worse. I was like you better go to a doctor turned out. It was a blood clot. So i don't know what the what manifests what symptoms. There are for a blood clot other than that. Because i experienced it through her. But i mean hopefully these are going to be okay. And they'll get rid of the blood clots or dissolve them or whatever it is that they do it. Was that a handful of seven million. Yeah but we're talking about two weeks. After the fact well if i could see why they paused is what i'm saying. Yeah i'm thinking okay. I got the shot last night. And i'm a woman between eighteen and forty eight. You've just panicked me. It would concern me. Yeah i would be panicked shari. I have a tendency to overreact. Just discussion so what the. We'll see what they say but we were just in the news break there. We were talking about In the commercial break we were talking about. Okay you're imagine you're a governor of any state. Let's take ron to santa's for a second. Okay get the first briefing. You wake up you know you fire up the laptop and you go over with your staff. What's on with a hot topics. what are we doing. What's the press release today. Well we have a johnson johnson paws. He's like oh. My god really. They just pushed because this was the most popular vaccine requested to open up more side specifically to get the johnson and johnson. Now he's one of one one governor of one state that has to figure out how to pause all these sites replace that maybe with your other doses of whatever else have we'll nationwide they gotta try to collect information from seven million people that have added. Yeah or are they just looking for the women. Wow and why is it. only women. great question is it. That certain chromosomes guys. Have all state see. This is why we need this. We need the info. So i i'm i'm sure that that's they probably have gathered a great deal of information about these women already but Maybe that's what they'll share. Maybe there are common denominators between six women. And that's what they're looking for. Originally took blood type may be a blood type right. Does this become one of those things that prevents more people from getting it. Like if you had an appointment today of of any vaccine does do you take pause and go. Well let me just wait a little bit now. I still i. I still would have gotten it Because i i. I think in in my such older than you got a lot of. I got a lot of years on you. So it's a different story for me does it. Does it scare the crap out of a lot of people. I think it's gonna scare the. Most people. Got the johnson and johnson vaccine right now going forward. This is not most people. This will cause a lot of people to say. Well you may be right. You may be right especially women. Forty percent of the marine corps forty percent turned turned it down in. Its intricate a vaccine. Because they're young. They're healthy my oldest. Who's thirty she's like. Why am i gonna get i'm fine. I'm healthy. I re- problems. I'm like okay. My young et had to get it. 'cause she's in the healthcare business so it's it's it's a different story and she goes. I work from home. Where do i go. Yeah i saw you hear something like this. You're like well. This is more of a chance of getting a side effect in there is actually getting covert or getting the effects of covid. Yeah well we shall see but it should be interesting to see if now or pfizer can step it up. So they can replace the johnson and johnson vaccines. It's gonna be a scramble among the states. The all their vaccinations sites weapon. That focus is the set this up in every member two weeks ago. Well we only want to get the johnson and johnson shot a one shot. And that's all anybody wanted and don't forget this is what the president based the everyone being vaccinated on was johnson and johnson. Joining the the realme. They got ten million doses sitting there right now. That are not going to be that are just sitting there because they said oh you gotta wait so we shall see what happens all right. So there's that tina here's here's the lighthearted segment actually he's got to have the opposite effect and send you into a fit of rage. I'm about to lose my mind. It possibly everybody. Will they do this. Click for that for that reaction. I i told y'all think about your most iconic movie theme music whether it be a song whether it be just instrumental and they have the top. I got the top ten. Okay okay. so we'll start with you. Bill what would you pick as your number one movie theme song. hold on. Gimme gimme five seconds. Go to dinner. So would you pick dressy park jerusalem right direct done not in the top. Of course it's not. I wouldn't be totally one of the most recognizable themes movie history remind. Okay go ahead yep. This is my number two godfather. First thing that popped into my head to you said this mine too. It is not on the list not an not even on the list in the top. Ten guys ten minutes. I'm leaving. i'm saying however another one of mine that i thought would be their jaws shorts anytime because you know me and sharks. I hate him so here. Everyone knows that song right. Where did it come in on this. List seven okay. so we're we're superman. Where is harry potter. Okay james bond not on the list. Wow odd okay home alone not on the list. Wow one you hit harry potter harry potter. At least at least yeah sure. I mean that deserves to be on their number two. We talked about a little while ago. Because james cameron didn't want a theme song for movie. Yeah and one of the producers had celine dion. Sing in my heart will go on. At titanic was number two number three never saw the film by the way what an idiot. He didn't look out. Well he didn't want a song taking away from the story and he said there's lots of times you get a great movie and they get a crappy song and the song routes about that. I don't know as theory was but he was wrong. Number three never saw the film don't know the music inception had a music is great movie but think of what the music was. Can i number four. It's a musical west side story but west side story over like i don't know wars or what's the one the danced in l. a. what l. a. Lot land la la land. Why wouldn't they love that movie. Thirtieth time timika brainwashed number six raiders of the lost ark followed by weirdos psycho star. Wars came in ninth. Wow just look stupid. West side story beat beat star wars. The awful thirteen year old blogger came up with his list was awful and then rocky rocky deserves to be on their ridiculous. Seventeen percent of people thought by the way the psychotherapy theme was the pirates of the caribbean. Wow really is that. There's so much moving music that they left out of their children. They must have no idea. I didn't see the breakdown. All right dave any anymore. News comes out of the johnson. Johnson vaccine pause. We'll talk about that coming up next but also we gotta we gotta celebrity. Going gonna run for president clear. He comes now hairy comes but actual politician in actual swamp monster who says she won't really. Oh and can we talk about the biggest sports news. That happened yesterday. Granted it's only us involves. Can we talk about. I know he made me cry. Awesome goodbye though. We're gonna coming up next florida morning. Show keep it here. Doug eight fifty. Wfl florida morning. Show jan diener a bill. Karen has got more news coming up throughout the day. The big news coming up at ten is going to be the press conference. I don't know who's hosting it. It's the information about the johnson and johnson vaccine pause. I am hoping in. And i say this with so much optimism that it is not rachelle. Wolinsky from the cdc. It'd be nice if it wasn't because i think her credibility after her meltdown of i'm going to go off script the future of ridiculous and then calling for michigan to go back to last spring's lockdowns. You need to go back and lockdown shut down. Because we can't help us on our problem do they just want to ignore texas and florida. We've lifted lockdowns. Dr numbers and deaths have gone down. This is wonderful like we don't exist. Yeah like go to the cdc map. Mistakes are gone. It's not we're not there anymore. Sorry we don't talk about you because you have good news. We don't wanna hear that that's about it So we shall see what they have to say I don't think they're going to share much more information other than the fact that it was six women. All between the ages of eighteen and forty eight curious about is how did an eighteen year old get the johnson and johnson vaccine because i thought sixteen to eighteen year olds or is it just like fifteen sixteen. Seventeen get the pfizer one. It's really interesting and good point because this is they're talking about from two weeks ago or even earlier bright a. We don't know where all these women come from it. It all hit them two weeks after they get the vaccine. The johnson and johnson shot so. But just think you just turned eighteen. When oh i can get the johnson and johnson one now not the pfizer one and you go and get that and next thing you know you've got a blood clot. Hopefully they're going to find the answer rather quickly. But if you were scheduled to go to the site and wellington that's been closed for today for the johnson and johnson. Sean i that much Tomorrow we're looking forward to hearing from publix. Because wednesday has traditionally been you make the appointment for the johnson and johnson sean on wednesdays. We'll see what happens. I don't know if they're going to be able to get enough mature to make the difference up. That's the thing to and now you're talking about fifty different states different. Vaccinations site different online portals. And there'll be more details on this now because seven million people who got the johnson and johnson shot right. They obviously want to collect information about this about any side effects from seven million potential. People chase that's crazy. So how do they did. The cdc set up a website or something. You can go to put your information you would think. And they're gonna crash it. Hopefully we find out you know they just want to hear from people who had side effects but still that could be a lot of people hopefully not but it could be any manage all this i. I don't know. I don't know that's a lot interesting interesting but we shall see. Hopefully at ten o'clock it'll be a little more than doom and gloom. Yeah that's what i'm thinking. Yeah hopefully in the meantime speaking of the vaccine forty percents of the marine corps has turned it down. Okay but you a look at it this way too because i think the younger you get more of these people because they have said consistently that younger people you know. They don't get it absolutely kids. Don't get it. Oh by the way which doesn't explain why cooperstown for the little league national championships and stuff. These kids are get shots. It's come like why is that anyway. So i think the younger you are. They say the better. Your chances are number when you're gonna survive it but to like you may have it but you're a symptomatic. I know my daughter. My oldest and my youngest have both had friends who've gotten it no symptoms and you know they both stayed quarantine for a couple of weeks and that was about it but the only reason they knew they they had it. They lost their taste of their the sense of taste. Yeah it seems to be that was. I can't taste the you know. I just spent twenty bucks on a steak. And i can't even taste the damn thing but in the marines case you're young. You're very healthy. You saying why well. But it's one of the first large-scale organizations they can look too. Because i guess they can actually collect all the numbers on that and forty percents. I listen tell anybody to get it or not get. It's it's a personal choice but is the military going demand that these kids but you can. You can take away from that. can't you. at least understand why people might want to speak pauses. Just wait a little bit to see long-term effects. I and it's like they're browbeating people into getting these do our part and became have weak links in the chain. Well hold on a second okay but then on the other spectrum of that is oh even though you get the vaccine though stay. Socially distance don't gathering crowds of more than ten. And make sure you're gonna mask on that was another deterrent. So hello because people hear that and they say well. Why am i getting the senate. Yeah exactly the show telling you the. Cdc are so-called expert virologists. They've been awful just absolutely awful. And now the cdc's director toan michigan. Go into lockdown again. We can help you. We can't giving you more vaccine isn't going to help okay. Then what is locked down the sure please. I'm like stop and i. She should have just said listen to it. Giving more vaccine. Sure we'll give it to you but you can't give it to people who are sick so the problem is the cows already out of the barn. So you're gonna get the cow back in the barn. I and she could have put it a little bit better. Instead of said lockdown the damn state just say you know. I tell people stay home now. Walk down the state. It's ridiculous. I don't know i know i i get so in senseless in that rachelle wolinsky. She's awful she's the head of the. Cdc they couldn't find somebody more qualified. She's terrible she is. I don't know who's worth sheriff ouchi. She should have stepped down like you said before to start this segment when she panicked everybody by i. I am scared. You don't say that as a leader. No lord no no no no no no was it was antenna that to get more people vaccinated to go out and rush to do it because it's the opposite effect show. They're having press conferences in the white house. Press room admonishing people for not getting back. I know she's but she was like oh mother as a daughter as a sister. I'm skirt for the future. Mike what are you doing. Lord you wanna panic. People love obscured for the future when this guy becomes president. Look now. i'm over his. Let me feed my ego with my grandma account or i'm always doing good things for people same account. We look a hostage where he was Endorsing joe biden reading off that piece of paper because he wanted to keep his hollywood jobs that it's difficult to criticize the rock doing good deeds. Siham here. I am saving somebody on the side of the road. Okay just do it and don't broadcast be an ice person. You don't have to sit there and brag about it. The people i've saved on the side. I ninety five. You ever see me on instagram going. Oh look at me. I saved somebody. Oh he's a jerk sometimes. Don't get me going now. He wants to run for president. No since the cape crusader. And you know that. I saved a life inbetween bench. Bit squats ma'am lifting five hundred pounds now. Who that point. What does he say. He's open to the idea if if the people wanted because he's a man of the people gen jiffy and he will run for president. Okay now. his people are people who are fans of his. And i'm not criticizing the rock because he's a good looking guy i like him. That's why you're not criticized. No but i don't think he has. He's an actor act. He's a wrestler wrestle become president. I'm sorry he's gonna ask his fans who are already following him. Should i run in all. Of course they're all going to say. Oh of course we. What president rock. It's a gimmick is changing outfit. And maybe it's going to go back into the wrestling ring. And he's gonna be trust as the president. I dunno see. This is interesting because remember. I told you guys watch that. Show young rock. Yeah it's about his life growing up and the premise of the show is actually that he's running for president in the year. Twenty thirty two. And he's doing all these tv interviews talking about his life growing up so he can be more relatable to people and they can learn about. Its history and i'm like well. This is pretty interesting. This is almost like a presidential campaign in itself you know show within a show and now he says he's open to it. He said if people wanted to do it then he's going do it. Doing it only needs to sell. It was guy the governor of minnesota. What was his name. Jesse ventura the body. Look at him right governor. So i you know. I think he should take baby steps. When are you. Start being an alderman. I or a councilman ord somebody in little bit county commissioner. Try their first before you run for the presidency alderman rock. Would you like to chime in. He might run. We have an actual political swamp monster who says she won't run if the dawn run's again. Oh my she's really suck up dilma trying to make amends. So what a turncoat hypocrite. She has turned out to be. Yeah nikki haley She first of all you know she didn't like to talk about this but everybody else's she asked for a meeting to at mar-a-lago with trump turned down. Yeah so now. She's out there saying well if he runs again. I won't and al support him. All this other stuff is she's being nice. Trust her and i mean this comes a few months after she said it was a mistake to support him. But now you're going to support him again and you want wanna meet with him yet. Want monster turncoat. She not the one that he did the big press conference four in the office about how great she was. I'm gonna sorry. And then she stabbed him right in the back and there's one thing if you if you didn't learn anything about donald donald trump while he was our president or anytime you've ever watched him. He loves loyalty. You're not loyal to him. He should have been. He should be in the mob family. I'm just saying gene part of the italian family. Because we're pretty similar to that loyalties everything. Don't screw screw us. It's it's all over year like cancer. I cut you off. Yeah he's no he wouldn't like we wouldn't take a meeting with her when a turncoat. Anyway we'll get to our emotional farewell retirement video from a great player. What's a shame already started the hall of fame fight to really happens on the same day. Somebody retired an easing please. That more next south florida morning. Show keep it here The morning show news techy fifty. Wsdl genders diener. A bill coming up in less than ten minutes. Supposedly you know this is this. Is government work well. So let's see if they bring this thing out on. Time is the press conference to explain the johnson johnson. Vaccine vaccination pause. It's happening for use of it because of You know some concerns health concerns. Yeah hopefully they'll be somebody there from johnson and johnson to talk about the good part of the vaccine for the company. I it's six people so far out of the seven million who have been vaccinated granted at six. If it were me. i'd be saying yeah you stop it because i'm sick. You know. I mean it's all about you and you get sick so i understand in these. These are blood. Clots is the severe stuff. It's not like it's right. You just got the a sneeze you know or you got a few little chills so it should be interesting to see what they they tell us. I'm hoping there's a link between all of these women. I know you know where they all. Please tell me they were all overweight. Or are they all had ab blood or they all from the same party europe or whatever. It's it's it's i dunno. It's kind of concerning. It's very concerning. And if i had vaccine i if i had that particular vaccine a i think i would be very concerned at this point so but if you're past two weeks does that mean you're okay. Because they develop the blood clots two weeks in. So if you're on the third week and you haven't had a blood plot. Does that mean you're on the safe side. I don't know this does it is a big deal. Affects a lot of people. Would you say seven million people in this country have had that particular vaccine when they started. The information's been leaking in as we. We've gone along here. And they said two weeks after the fact. That's that's concerning. Yeah so my first question would be if i have it and it's been a month since i got it. Should i still be concerned if i'm a woman in. Does it affect men. Yeah exactly all right. We'll try to figure out all that. Well it's coming up in just a couple of minutes here. Ten o'clock in the meantime. I don't want to cry. Don't play the thing. not a lot in. Sports makes me cry anymore. Oh i cried. Lived as a boston sports fan. I've lived the highs highest of highs in the lowest of popular lows in sports. Not much shocks me anymore. But this retirement from julian edelman yesterday. It got to me how they put it together. It's him walking out to an an empty share in the middle of gillette stadium and how they started it off. What got me. He's sitting there going in the camp. Somebody's walking around in three sixty with a camera around him as they're playing the audio of his greatest highlights on that feel. That was dying here. Here's what it sounded like. And then he goes into the speech part creating more always said mogollon to the wheels come off and they finally have fallen off due to an injury last year. I'll be making my fish. Announcement of my retirement from football was a hard decision. But the right decision for me and my family and i'm honored and so proud to be retiring patriot. I've been. I don't care what team you root for. If you can't see the glory in this guy's career on believable warrior seventh round draft pick becomes probably will be a hall of famer with the elected or not and a position. He never played before. Yeah he was a quarterback right. It can't stay kent state as a quarterback they and then belichick makes a receiver. I'm like okay. He was probably like okay. I watched that special. You told me about it. It was on hbo. I guess his dad was. Oh my god but after he got hurt the first time in his comeback in in just what i mean. He's not a really big huge guy. You think of football players. I always think you know six four. Three hundred pounds average size. Got everything out of his butt in his knee was shot just gone. But he second all time career playoff perceptions three time super bowl champion a super bowl. Mvp unbelievable and just some of the moments. I just i. i'm so spoiled forever watching a guy like that you're right and Don't play the rest of it. But he does end with it when he said at the end. I can't even say 'cause. I cried stupid thing and i cried. Normally crazy raising. I'm talking about it. I'm crying for god. Sakes don't even do this to me. I kind of knew it was coming but it still gets you.

The South Florida Morning Show hr 4 4-12-21

"But we liked it back to the porch. We survived that nasty weather for the most part. Most people's power is back muscles. Tough flying in and out of florida last night. Though and it begs the question his Our flight number slowed down at all for the because there are a lot of people booking for spring break only one way to find each point. Eight fifty with aviation expert. Jay ratliff on news. Fifty w. f. t. l. ladies and gentlemen jay first of all good morning. Welcome here again. And are the airlines. Just as happy as they were last week with their booking numbers are they are. We had one point. Five million people fly yesterday according to the. Tsa that is nice. We've had several days over the last week where we've been more than one and a half million people screened for the course of the day. In fact our sooner average you'll be close to that last year. Yesterday we had ninety thousand five hundred. Ten people fly so again shooting for us. Two point four million two point five million. That's the norm but We are well on our way. And certainly. that's good news. And as we continue to see more and more people take skies and more and more people are coming here. That's for no doubt. Hey we're gonna. I think they're all coming there. We're going to throw you a curveball. Speaking of coming here these people were trying to leave here And i think it happened right. After we talked to you last week spirit spirit airlines leaving orlando to are. They going to lennox city bill. There was atlantic city. I was a couple. She's pregnant The husband was next door. They have a son who was autistic. I think And then there was a little baby sitting on the woman's lap eating and the flight attendant told them that they were breaking the rules and they had to leave and the family was like well. She's eating note. Don't she needs to put a mask on and they remove this family but to later they let everybody back on including the family. So do you know what happened because what happened on. This situation was that the the child was two years of age was older than two and according to the flight attendant she said look anyone. Two years of age or older is required to have a mass now at the time that the interaction was going back and forth. The child wasn't eating so the attendant saying the rules are this. And if you're not going to comply off. The plane became such a disruption because passengers seated around the family we're rallying to the defence yes family. That's what made it different right exactly. So as a result everyone was moved removed from the plane. Now to the to the. I i guess to the credit of spirit airlines management. They stepped in and said. Wait a minute. Under the president biden's executive order with regards to the federal mass policy. There is an exception for those are individuals. Her children with special needs that harking capable of wearing a mask and as such spirit nelly put the family back on and all the other passengers back long. There was a delay a significant delay but in the end everyone was on the plane and everyone got to their destination. So i think in part it was either the flight attendant not being fully aware of the rules or it could have been just a battle of wills at a lot of times with people. When they're authority is questioned. They kinda you know bounce back and just say look. This isn't going to happen and it's going to be my way and you know fortunately here. The management stepped in and did what was right so The the story ended well and that was certainly good news to see. Well you're right. Who was the executive in charge. Who found that pretty obscure rule. That was in. The you know executive order here to really alleviated a situation where everybody knows. I'm thinking yeah well you know the thing is it's not been that long since it's been implemented and you know we're all stuck on the two years of age and older have to wear a mask. Yeah kind of thing so. It's easy just to to throw that out there with stop without stopping saying wait a minute. There are some exceptions in this and those exceptions did not take effect immediately. It was it was sometime after the order was put in place but it was good to see because you know those types of situations you you know you feel for the family and and again once. We're past the mass situation. It's going to become a non issue as we move forward. We're all looking forward to that. Of course there's concern on the horizon if any of these variants or any of these other things start popping up it's gonna see a slight surge of any kind that might cause people to become more mask type of thing than what we're going to be looking at here is this Mask grohl extended for an extended period of time. And there's nobody that. I've talked to that says right. I really hope stick around forever. Nobody wants to. I won't fly until they're gone. I'll drive anywhere. They weren't gonna fly over. We can't fly 'cause My wife sherry with her asthma as she cannot wear masks for an extended period of time. So we we have. Since last valentine's day of last year we've been able to fly. We've canceled seven or eight trips since but you know the idea here is that there are individuals that are still saying that you know if the airlines ever went domestically to this Health passport the coronavirus passport. We've discussed it. Could be that. Everyone could fly without a mask. But only those with the vaccine could fly Absent of the mask. Everyone else would be asked to wait so i hope we don't go in that direction. But you know there's more and more discussion of that. And i really hope that. That's something that doesn't come come to pass. There was Was a cutter airlines Had the first vaccinated crew and passengers was it last week. I guess right now the daily stories on tuesday. We had to wait like a week to tell you we get a move. You know five days a week. The thing is there. There are several airlines internationally that have several destinations where the only people they will transport. We'll be passengers that have had the vaccine for the coronavirus. They will not allow anyone else on. Board the aircraft and in part that's because of the restrictions that some of the destinations with some of it is just the the policy of the airline in that is spreading from europe through asia to a lot of different parts of the world and it's It's becoming more and more of a thing and i really. I don't like the way it's headed. Because you're you're telling people that did not take the voluntary vaccine that they're not able to travel and you know we. We go down that road and i've told you before it. My concern is other businesses doing that like restaurants theatres comrades places right say look. The only people were going to allow in are those that have had the vaccine and that. That's really problematic when you start talking about the logistics of segregating everyone into i got the vaccine or did not receive the vaccine type of thing and going from there. I think that we would see even more issue's obviously than we than we do. Now and then I know my ears. Perked up genital. If you've ever been interested in this. But i've looked for. I've told myself for years and gonna do that. Tsa pre check it just everytime airport security on like geez that seems like a good idea and then forget about it but is there a tsa pre check and global entry. Scam going around. That'll scare people from doing it. There is. I will quickly add that. You should get the tsa pre check. Okay okay remind me five dollars for five years. It's great if you only fly once a year. Seventeen bucks a year each way. I mean it's it's like flight insurance in case you're running linked to the airport. Now that more people are flying more people are thinking about the tsa pre check and saying. Hey you know this this would be a nice thing to have and unfortunately there's a lot of emails that are coming out in fake websites. That are coming out that our company saying look we help you through the process you know for a slight feet and for a lot of people they think it's worth it Because tsa pre check is eighty five dollars for five years. And if someone says they'll help you through the process all you have to give us all of your personal information and we will do it for you at a slight cost. It seems fair but then all of a sudden they're stealing all of your information and the better business bureau step forward. Look there's a lot of these out there and they're causing a lot of people a lot of grief so you need to be very very careful if it's an incoming e mail or something that you stumble across as far as the website that is not an official government agency. Because if that's the case then you could end up losing money and maybe losing the personal information that we all strive to protect. Be very very careful. That's that's the scariest thing. I think even more than the money wouldn't you think is the personal information. So where do you go to drafter. A nominal fee makes. It seem like a good deal and if they were doing what they said they were doing it would be a good deal but the bottom line is you. Don't eat them do you. There's an application process to go through for each. it tastes a little bit of time. there's interviews. That are they're required. Look once you get it. It's and it's easy to renew after you have it. It's it's to me. It's it's the greatest thing because regardless if you fly of an airport you might say jake come on the average. Wait time here with the great. Tsa we have is like fourteen minutes. Why do i need it. Well if you're coming back from philadelphia or chicago one of these other places a fifty five minute wait times during the day you might think you know what i might miss my flight navy. That would have been a good idea after also. I'm a big fan of today. You need it you need. If so where where do you get. All this information is going to the tsa or you do it at the airport. easiest way to go and you can start your search from there and it's You know they fingerprint you and do some other things but it it's basically screening you ahead of time. Now you're not skipping any screening process at the airport. So i don't wanna give people the idea that you run from your car straight to the plane. You're still going to be screened. But you know you don't to take your shoes off take off. There's certain things that allow you to pass through there more quickly. Because the thought is they prescreened. You and you are considered less of a threat. Because of the fact that you've been prescreened and that means that you can kind of go through the expedited Screening process which is nice. Now if you've not you go through the full body imaging scanner and all these other things which take more time That's that's on the other line. But i look at it as flight. Insurance people buy flight insurance all the time. This is like flight insurance for seventeen fifty a year each way. If you only take one trip a year. I'm going to do and it's great to have because you never know if your car is gonna break down or right some sort of delayed you get to the airport later then expected through no fault of your own. It's something that could end up saving a trip or saving vacation just by having that five dollars thing that you use once every five years and To me if you travel even just a little bit. It's it's a great. It's a great thing to have. Sounds like a good idea. I'll take that and get a oil change in my motorhome. Thank you convince her. Working on all right sir. Hey for linkup to all of jays content right eight fifty w. f. t. l. dot com in the morning. Show blog where you can also find out about your a day trade fund as well.

He was hilarious. He was the tall skinny kid right behind him. He's only twenty four years old and he's how good is this kid. He's twenty now. He's playing at the master. Something like well what were you doing. You're twenty four I don't know. I was rooting for him yet. That great saturday any so skinny. I wanted him to win. Because throw the masters into a panic.

He was from here in boca because he's always playing at the boca raton resort and club. Everybody lives here now including sylvester stallone. Apparently back stallone. Years ago is five. Want to say. His father lived in wellington. One of them will either. His mom or his dad lived in wellington and he was out there all the time he had a in miami.

Are you gonna let him in right. Sara lee might not like them dog big meeting by the way speaking of and this didn't have any do some big. I dunno republican meeting over mar-a-lago separate to that though the real meeting apparently was trump was meeting with the santa's they played around a golf. And you know how they take those paparazzi pictures like three hundred yards away. That's amazing me too. Because they got in trump's and they had to be like on the street somebody to over a wall somebody or somebody who is not supposed to post them did they were there. They were talking about something while the then of course the big rumor is. There's your team for twenty twenty four. So it's it's is he gonna run not to santa's trump. I don't know every time antibody comes out of mar-a-lago they like any seem so happy. Every time i hear that. I'm like oh he's not gonna run. I don't know why why would you. You know what you're you're living your life now have a good time. Get back your your what. How many spots did he drop on the billionaires clear to one hundred and ninety eight time to go back up like three hundred people. He's a pauper. He's he's he's hurting. Because of that.

He's such a jerk now. what he's doing. I hate that jennifer. She's up out loud but every day. We actually do get those. Let's true but he got what trump is in the millions. Yeah he got a lot more than we did so every day. Somebody ridicules what you do right. I could never live like that now. I have a hard time with the nasty ones we get from our listeners. Get nice ones to have been you been in the mail bag recently. They're dinner time to go in the mail bag. We haven't looked recently. I think i did a few days ago. We had a thursday. Yeah well that was a while ago. Look we have tips. Yeah hey sh talk about this or that one lady that said turn the music down during rapid fire is a good that was a good tale is very helpful. Don't listen to it live. We're here right i'll take. I'll take any helpful. Tips gotta tip for this lady. What if you're gonna try to buy gift cards as a scam at dollar general. Don't use the one million dollar. Bill aimed fall for that. The dollar general. I wish it seems like it's a florida story but it's not. Oh my god dumb. I'm sorry well it is a dumb. You can't fix stupid. Yeah what's the biggest bill. We have now. I think it's like the hundred. They got rid of everything. Did they get rid of the five hundred so this is something we we went through this before. I think they did the hundreds the highest big nice when they got used to be like a ten thousand dollar bill. Yeah so i think benjamin's the highest. Yeah you're right. Used to be five hundred that was in circulation. But i don't know if that's their dinner. Go google but this lady to a dollar general in maryville tennessee last week. Okay and yes right. She tried to pass chase. Come on a million dollar bill. How even fit that. Many zeros on a bill like what who the character was on. Just want to see a picture of the three stooges picture of elmo something million dollar i gotta go see million dollar bill. Looks like see if they have a picture of women told the cops she got it from a church. Okay no and she got off with a warning though which shocks me because they could connected this too. She's obviously trying to run a game with gift cards. Obviously and then cash those in later for something else right. I'm a major. Get off with a warning but she also can't go back to the store. Oh this coming for the blunt county daily times. If you'd like to read the story directly which was in tennessee tennessee. I'm jealous i was hoping i'm with. You always hoping it was here. Yeah well here's a million dollars. Really who's who's the statue of liberty has a mustache would have been your phone bet right. I don't think this is real ma'am dollar. Bill only has a million on it one million dollars in the middle. I don't know who's on the back of well but we may have an amazing technological development coming out of disney. They listen disneyland has been closed for like a year. they had to make a big splash. Somehow and i think they did while. I think they did in the problem. Is that good all the headline and that what they were talking about. A disneyland may have overshot their shots. Yeah i think so. We may have real lightsaber soon. Real yeah and his mind. It's real all right. We do have a floor dope though the audio from the lady. That's going to jail for coughing another lady. I'm surprised thirty days the way she should have gotten a lot more crazy. Get that next morning. Show gen bill it here. Newstalk fifty wfan outflow morning. Show his jan diener bill. Cairns news is about twelve minutes away mcsherry at checkout fifty w. f. t. l. dot com though to the morning show blog. I like the variety we have on their today. Well i stuff. Yeah we have Moideen man What's his name. I forgot already. Chris something or other also chip authorship hawthorne he'd drove his writing lawnmower from titusville to the gulf of mexico. I love that guy and alternates. Money for habitat for humanity. Took them about a week. He sounds like this. We're doing event called the were driving this four thousand series model number seven four zero five five thirty one horse kawasaki. You know it was every bit of that engine. You know what he got. You know what that reminds me of my cousin vinny. The the prosecuting attorney says it was it a model number about the tires on the car. That's exactly what it sounded like Yeah he works for the company that has the lawnmowers he works for the they sell it. I don't know what kind of i didn't know. Kawasaki made lawnmower research. How much. I knew He works there so he raised all this money. I think they're up to like eighteen thousand dollars now for habitat for humanity. Yes as a special. There's a special habitat for humanity like in his hometown. So that's what he probably works with them in volunteers with them. So that's probably way did it. Fifty from titusville to springhill long. That took a long time and he had a cop with them the whole time so just think of the poor cup taking the poor people behind the cop in the three mile. Not me one day. I'll try this highway fifty. I haven't taken that one of the west goes. Tell me they just a two lane and you can't get by and they don't you know it's those roads are horrible. They're great and then finally they got smart and they put in the passing lane. No i inevitably get behind the idiot. Who doesn't know how to pass. It's like okay. You want to move so but that's what that that's what sixty used to be like member right. Yeah you're right. you're right man anyway. We digress got that and then what's the other thing we have. The usc guy. You usc needs some good publicity after that college blues varsity blues that college scandal thing. This isn't it. Wow this homeless guy. Not only sneaks onto the usc. I guess it was spring practice. The football field plays with them gets in the locker room gets a uniform goes out and practices then gets cut but he made it a couple of days i. How did they are. They don't they. Don't give you the details on how they caught him other than he couldn't play football that well. Yeah i probably went son found out he was like forty years old but if they gave him a helmet bads that means they gave him a locker right. You would guess had he got to have a locker anyway because he's gotta get suited up so he's got to get close from somewhere. He was training with them. Gobble good for him. You know what. He was homeless to get some good sleep. Good meal get some good exercise. Good friend maybe made some friends. I felt bad though. They arrested him. Yeah come on malone they turn this you're right. Pr wise like they don't want him to be an example but they could give them a equipment job or do something to say. The football team could hired him as is something absolutely because after you watch if you have not seen it. We both highly recommend you go watch the varsity blues college scandal thing on. I think it's on. Hbo matthew modine plays the mark singer key mark. Singers that it's the guy that put it all together. But what's amazing about. It is all the dialogue. Actual was all true because they had everything recorded. Three phone calls every conversation on the phone. They reenact is the god's honest truth it is bad and and this went on for years and years and years before he got caught even that one woman she said when he was when she was in high school he would come. Singer would come to the high school and talk to these kids and she'd go. I listened to him should said sit there and go everything he's saying it's a lie and i'm thinking then why did you invite him to talk. It was horrible. What are my favorite parts of that was member we were making fun of the hot pockets heiress got involved and she's on the phone with singer. Go and this. This one isn't like my other daughter. She's smart she's gonna figure it out so at some point the daughter either dumb daughter has to watch this. Because you can't let her now and how. Laurie lachlan's kids got caught. How or lachlan in mossy mocha caught there. The kids guidance counselor at their high school heard that they scholarship to be on the team at. Usc was like they got a scholarship to be on a rowing team. There's something wrong here. So he goes to usc to ask them. What the hell's going on well mossy mo finds out about their father. He goes down and tries to scare the guy. Yeah the weasel then. The athletic director. Usc's like you gotta get this guy away from us. He's gonna screw everything up in that kind of like opened up the whole thing the. Ucf let is she still there the electoral who's into prison. I think she was on the take for million. Yeah yeah oh my god. I felt bad. That other guy at stanford the the sailing guy. He was the only one that any money but put it into the program. He said okay. You're going to give us. I don't really think he thought it was that bad. Or you're gonna give me half a million dollars. Sure i can buy a new boat right and alan. That's what he did so in his life. Yeah it's an amazing. An amazing documentary. Really and i felt bad for the guy that had the winery with all his money because he kept on saying. I'm sure this is legal. While he's being recorded for thank god and that singer. He's a snake he turned on. Everybody was he was a weasel time. You're chad amazing. No they think he's he's telling people he's not gonna go to jail for that alone. I put an hours and just because he's a jerk believable. Okay i get off on that. Sorry something amazing happened over the weekend. Disney disney land closed so when they announced they had a press conference like they do they had to make a big splash. Yeah right like you said. Jen i think this one stolley attention away from everything. Elti overshot a splash. It's just a little bit so during the virtual presentation you know talking about a years. New things is when we're opening here's capacity and all this stuff for disneyland california. They wanted to do something. Flashy in executive showed off a lightsaber. I real one simply and turned it on in the video ended so it was like a teaser. But this is all anyone talking. But that's all after. He spent thirty minutes explaining what each park was going to do. How they're gonna do special ticket pricing all this stuff about disneyland net. Only thing that anybody wanna know. When's the lightsaber going to be available to reporters that saw there. Were actually in the room at the time. The room where it happened. Say the light. That activated from the hit was similar to how light sabers activate in the star wars films. Later in the day disney's creative boss had to answer questions saying we got so much interaction about whether the lightsaber revealed today was reeler. Cgi whether i'd share a photos or video. I will say this yes. It was is real and not yet. Wow always said can you imagine if disney really does create a okay. Is this labor going to be able to like cut. People in half like a dozen films oughta hope so. I can just see kids at disney anyway. Plastic lightsaber fights. There's gonna be a lot more interesting. It sure is. We'll find out who the real jet is. Our after the ride. That would be really scary. maybe elon. Musk will get his hands on one ticket to mars when he goes so. If you run into any aliens he can zap them. Speaking of which the helicopter blades didn't work. They're going to try again win. Really get up really early this morning to watch it to not then.

The South Florida Morning Show hr 4 3-1-21

"In south florida morning show with jennifer. Ross in bill adams on newstalk eight fifty w. mtl welcome monday. We have a lot from be president. Cpac speech to go over. It was a lot to digest after that. It's taken all morning long. It's a lot of stuff was all good stuff though capping everything we talk about each and every day absolutely apparently though and we heard this from our aviation expert jay ratliff said last night. Not good stuff for the airlines. Though finds a racking up for some passengers that's one thing but complaints are racking up apparently for the airlines themselves. He's flanked eight fifty with aviation expert. Jay ratliff on news. Talk fifty w. f. t. yelled ladies and gentlemen jay when i saw you said this over. I said no. But given the circumstances and i'm no fan of airline customer service the way it's been the past few years but given the circumstances maybe this isn't all their fault of what the airlines have to deal with regarding complaints. What do you think. Well i think. A lot of things The a lot of it had to do with refunds on covert and things and to kind of set it as a backdrop You know in two thousand nineteen we had What nine hundred and twenty five million people so that flew right during the course of the year and we had fifteen thousand people. Complain fifteen thousand. I guess To three hundred and forty two. And when you look at it that what you're thinking man. The airlines are doing a pretty good job if they carried nine hundred. Twenty six million people in fifteen thousand complaints right but these complaints routed through the department of transportation. Most people don't know you can do that so it's always been difficult for me to measure pair line customer service on the dot numbers when most people don't even know you can do that. Well last year when the complaint started to rise mainly around how some of the airlines were handling refunds on the corona virus. Tickets and flights were affected. Well that's when people found out through us and other people that you could complain through the department of transportation and even though we had sixty percent pure flights last year we had one hundred and two thousand five hundred five hundred. People issued a complaint through the department of transportation website. That's a huge number. Boy is but if in reality if you had nine hundred and twenty six million people fly right and most people knew you could go through the dot. You'll be looking at that as a low number. You would have many more than that as far as complaints that were against the airline industry and if we are in fact dedicated to try to hold the airlines feet to the fire give us better customer service treatise better than yes. Let's make sure that when we have an issue let's complain through the dot website so that can do just that try to help. Airlines could provide better service for us. You've completely changed my opinion on this because now now that i know where the complaints where they originated from. Which is what you always advocate. This is actually what possibly could change things then. This is the right way to do it then. I hope so because if one month in this has happened in the past where the airlines had thirteen hundred and two complaints in a month in a month when you had seventy five million people fly the next month to dot says hey we only got eleven hundred and forty eight complaints. Yeah right your lights are doing a better job. And i'm like mark. How in the heck are you coming up with that because the number went down when you have nobody knows you can complain through the dot website. So i've always had an issue of that. And look. I know the airlines hate to have a complaint filed through the dot website. It creates paperwork. It's etiquette you have. They have to respond to copy in the dot they have to. I don't know do what they're supposed to do instead of ignoring a complaint that perhaps they need to resolve one way or another. So i tell people all the time. Yes if you'd need to complain complain to the airline and give a short matter of time if they've not responded to the ot website your complaint through there and i was. Everyone did that. We would see numbers much. Much more. Reflective of what ever level of service were getting from the airlines Through those dot numbers if we did so. How bad are they when it comes to wearing masks on the plane of build you wanted to ask them about a flight. The east saw right jay. I'm kind of throwing you under the bus here for a second time. We know you can handle it. Yeah i if you haven't seen it will describe the situation because it just happened. A guess on sunday but it family for the frontier flight from miami to Laguardia and this is over the eighteen month old baby. Did you happen to see this. One is Here's what's disturbing to us. We've been watching this video all morning. Long frontier claimed The flight on sunday was because there was a large group of passengers refusing to wear masks. You can see clear as day in the video. It's actually a family happened to be acidic and whether that's relevant to the story or not it was the eighteen month old baby. They couldn't get a mask on. Oh please that. Got them tossed. But here's what disturbed me. I really think this is a societal thing that that is really bad. It was an airline full of passengers reading out the family and they all started chanting. We did it when they got booted. Oh oh yeah. That's a problem. elective you. We made a difference. Even though most of the time that the passenger have to be two years of age and older for them to have the requirement. I wear matt exactly so if you're talking eighteen months i'm sorry that's not two years in the rules out the right out the window and when you when you when you see that back that an entire flights was canceled you know the the idea that over the mask policies that are ongoing It just goes to show that. Perception is what's ruling the day. Here very much sackler right. If it's a baby that's not wearing a mask you know like an eighteen month old. I mean how in the world are. Are you going to be able to ever do that. If you check the rules in the airlines say two years of age and older and you're thinking okay. I'm okay i've got an eighteen but because of the the mentality of the people traveling that change everything i mean. You know shame on frontier for not doing a better job of handling that situation and you can see in the video jen. The dad is saying look i get. I get why you're mad. This child is is under the age of two though. He was clearly aware the rule right and they've got they've got another passenger now that you know that saying it was only about the baby for the rest of the family was wearing a mask. Oh do they have a lawsuit. The rules you asked us to follow. We're doing what we should be doing. And then you know you get this flight from miami to laguardia that you had this breakout because again Of of people that you know want to take over and forced the airline the business to do what they goes against their own policy and that is a perfect picture of what we've seen over the last year where it it's not. It's not the logic of the moment. it's what the crowd mentality is. That's going to dictate which way a politician goes which way this goes. And that's what aggravates so many people that are flying in an all other areas of business. What do you mean. I can go to a business. Here is forced to social distance but this businesses not. This business was forced to close where this one is not. There's no consistency anywhere. Which is what has really aggravated so many people that are saying. Look i am so done with this pandemic because of the way that it's been mismanaged care. Who the president is who the governor is. Who the who the mayor of the town is. There's no consistency. And if you're gonna if you're really gonna stick it to me just be consistent and i'll hate it but a learn to live with it but don't keep coming up with different rules every other week. Expect me to okay. And unfortunately the airline industries caught smack dab in the middle of it. When you have a situation like this happen it just really shines the light on you. Know what's really aggravating. A lot of people. What's really going to aggravate frontiers. When they sue for millions of dollars yet good question. I would sue over. That look. passengers were not affected by that. But we're on the flight in. They weren't involved and yet they missed the business meeting. They missed a funeral. They missed a wedding. You better believe that. They're going to be lining up as well to sue frontier saying look. I wasn't a part of the group. That was the focus of the video. Here i was just happened to be an innocent bystander flight flight and now i miss my business meeting chose. You didn't follow your stated rules on your flight. Frontier dot com website. And because you didn't do what you should have you know. I missed out on a meeting. That could've made me x. amount of dollars. I'll be standing in line to sue. As well it it will be in litigation for years because of the inability for the crew to to handle this situation properly all right now on this delta flight was this on a curve ball. Did i do okay with the job. Yeah good okay. You did find okay. We'll give you we'll give you a plus from you. That means door okay. So tell me about this woman on this delta flight. She slaps the flight attendant. All is it because she was frustrated. Is it because she was breaking the law is because she didn't think she was what went on this. This goes back to october of last year a man and woman board a delta flight. They're preparing to leave the man that's traveling doesn't put a seatbelt on and won't put his mask on. The flight attendant approach him very play. Lisa sorry i need to see but on a need you put your mask on correctly. Nose the mouth. He refuses to do either attended continually ask politely and then when it's obvious he's not going to buy by her instructions she says. I'm sorry you're gonna have to get off the airplane well. He refuses do that as well. That's when the woman traveling with him jumps up stands up maybe jumps up the wrong word gets nose to nose with this flight attendant and they start going back and forth and then the the heated moment kind of builds there to the point that the woman passenger halls off and flaps the flight attendants let across the face. Of course somebody caught it on video. That's not gonna work well in on friday. This passenger was fined. Seven thousand five hundred dollars as a result of her action and i'm sure she's been banned from flying delta. I hope her in the man that was traveling with her have been banned off every airline in the country so that they never fly again and have to put a flight attendant in that kind of a position anywhere. But we're seeing more and more these fine handed down. There was a united airlines flight. Diverted cost united fifty thousand dollars. The man responsible was ordered to pay united fifty thousand dollars mile. So we're seeing more of these fines handed down. I hope they continue. So there's some sort of real rip repercussion and some consequences that are serious work for the people that not only divert the flight and cause an issue there but that flight at aircraft going to another city where a bunch of people are waiting to catch it and at that flights canceled in the one. After that you have one idiot. That's messing up. Travel plans for hundreds and hundreds of people bound the flight attendant. Get any of that money. no no see what she she did a good job. I mean she wasn't for we've had flight attendants that have gotten a little hostile on their own right because they're tired of dealing with this but You know this one appeared to be you know doing her job is they're trained to do and as a result You know which which tells me that it look. There's so much of the stuff that the flight attendants are. Tired of their emergency evacuation trained specialists and they've turned into mass beliefs. And it's just something that is just wearing them down to the point that you know. Some of them are in counseling. Some of them are taking time off. It's just gotten to the point. Where every day they have to battle people to follow the rules and they're the ones that are on the frontlines dealing has to the frustration has to build up. But let me ask you real quick if adjust out of a motor reflex if the flight attendant at smacked her back. Oh does she get fired. She does yeah. We were always allowed to restrain passengers. We were never allowed to strike. Now you could restraining forcefully but you are not allowed to strike restraint and they happen to fit in a left hook at. They happened to fall on your are you know. Maybe then we're nobody can see. But nels lord play here. I really shouldn't say that there was a video that came out of delta pilot that was beating passenger in a jet bridge are available on youtube and to my knowledge he did not lose his job over that but very strict things and like most of the time. When you're seeing a gate agent get beat up. A ticket counter agents a flight attendant. Most of the time. They're not responding. They're taking it because rain news for you. Somebody going back and they're gonna go down right. Jay cost you your career. The situation worse. Bill does it to me. Every day i get. I gotta restrain myself beaten up with new every day. It's a horrifying situation. Look i i. i'm nine hundred miles away. And i'm a little uneasy. You're on the front lines brother. I know rice. Jeez yeah he's got or don't worry great stuff j.

I'm bill keep it here. News talk eight fifty. Wfl these south. Florida morning show. Well what can the monday there's jan there's diener a bill cairns get news and hold on. Wait for it eight minutes. Oh look at that you at the top of the hour. Good for you. As long as she's on time she's going to have a lot more Audio lot of recaps from the trump cpac speech in orlando it. Was i would have to say i think if i just landed from another planet and just watch this guy giving a speech. I would call a good speech. I really would one of his best. It was a great speech Purely because he hit on everything that has been problematic since he left office. A what shocked me. The most was when he opened it up and he said you miss me yet or whatever said. Everyone laughed and i laughed at home and then he went on he goes you know and six weeks. Joe biden and this administration have reversed everything that we had accomplished. Bright might six weeks. He said he knew it was going to be this bad. And he's right everything he talked about but he talked about everything we have said here whether it be foreign policy whether it be for the world health organization teachers unions girls sports it was. It was incredible. Were you surprised. He took the girl sports challenge. Yes i was. I was two one. But it's a huge issue and that would have been so imagine. imagine a world We're trumpet actually. You know been declared the winner he this would have been a massive massive undertaking for him. I think he would like we would have seen an executive order protecting girls sports. And you know why it became a big issue. His daughter i bet vonk said you know what you got granddaughters. What what's to happen if they're doing this now. What happens by the time they get to school or high school. In you know i i know friends of mine. They got you know grandkids or their own kids there on these travel soccer teams. They go all over the state and they spend thousands and thousands of dollars on their kid because their kids good enough and if you're looking at scholarship and the next thing you know here comes joe who says hey i'm a guy i'm a girl really. Yeah i wanna play on the girls soccer team. It's not going to happen. It's not fair in any way shape or form. It's just not and i think they know that too. I mean karen has a great example. Being a collegiate runner it was only in the major marathons woes at eighty four. Eighty five that they could compete. Eighty four so that in one thousand nine hundred four before women could compete in the olympics and to finally get to this point and all about sports and to try to get some equal funding and now taking a shot the shins. You know with this challenge. I it's little you take a school like connecticut that traditionally for women's basketball is like a powerhouse. And all of a sudden say kentucky adds a couple of guys to the team there goes. there goes connecticut's rain in la. The you can topple any school by just saying tell this guy. Hey you're six eleven. Know seven one girl for sure What's to stop somebody from doing that. He also I think put this one to rest. We will do what you've done right from the beginning. Choose to win. We're not starting new parties. Hey dad never believed that from the get-go going to be the patriot party. It's going to be a third party finally in no that's just a dumb move. No not going to happen. Wow in fact. He was fake news. I do believe that was from the fake news. Because it's their goal to say that there's this huge divide in the republican party. Not really there's just a hint like ten rhinos. They need to get rid of combo. He named all of them to great effect started with mitt. Romney i was great. And i think he ended with liz cheney the book end so good for you but he said that's that's their goal. That's that's his goal he will he. Will you know. I win the house back. And then the senate and then he's going to put a republican president back in the white house and then we got this a lot of people claim they have superpowers. Well if you could prove it. Nice little wanna cash you can win two hundred and fifty thousand dollars the center for inquiry los angeles. It's a real thing gen running a contest a few years. Call the paranormal challenge. The rules are very simple. If you can prove you have a superpower you will win a quarter million dollars. So like if i could read your mind or if i could tell what the future holes bend metal I win two hundred fifty thousand dollars. That's right what was interesting about that is they. Said they've had thousands of people obviously say they could do it. None of yet has proven to be a superpower holder. But they said all of these people had one thing in common they all believe they had a superpower. Oh yeah oh yeah. They're like anti cuomo. Well yeah. I believe in themselves super power. He convinced himself. He's innocent of killing people. That's a superpower at the superpower. Yes also the power of a sociopath a running list online of the people who have attempted the challenge. Some recent ones were a path who said he could project images into people's heads in a man who said he could make topspin in strange ways on a table. Can you know what. I wanna see if this project just releases the addition videos and that would be great. How great would that be to watch. I mean these people like nothing happens to the top of the table. He's like look get it. It would be so crazy right. Yeah you're not like john travolta in that Phenomena was phenomenon. Yes and that was the that was a great movie sad movie but great movie. But you're regine they said. The project organizers said everyone that's entered there's been thousands hundred percent believe that they have the power to do it one hundred percent so they're all crazy trying to tell you the confident i can read your mind. Okay what am i thinking. You're thinking about puppy dogs. no. I wasn't spaghetti and meatballs for dinner time. I was saying that we just gotta get a hold of the videos on this unless they auditioning for in person. You think that's all. I would bet it's kind of like guinness. Somebody's gotta witnesses witness it right. Diener we're gonna send you have the power to put up with each and every day i was going to say i wonder if i mean there's that and there's also a wonder if knowing way too many facts about alien stories and theories of is that a is that a superpower no. I don't think that's kind of power. Waste of time. And some of the people entering though i think they got you beat on the aliens. Religio alien like experts more. They've been abducted by aliens. Oh absolutely yeah. I wouldn't finish chance. Now sorry your superpowers for a group to get publicity without having a handout. And he cash though. Isn't that wonderful. Like no one's gonna get the rise money no ever. We got to talk about gaga by the way. Oh yeah they lady gaga. Update from friday is happened over the weekend. Good news for the dogs. Not so good for the walker. Nobody's still cares about him. Poor guy at some other headlines coming up next south florida morning show stuck eight fifty w. f. t. l. e. self-loading morning show. Is jen diener. I am bill more news before you know coming up. Top of the hour right there so more from the trump's speech at cpac which was very very big. We played the opening plenty of times which obviously was packed. Your clothes the close to the whole speech. I thought was the best line of all that together. We will make america prouder freer stronger and greater than it ever has been before. Thank you cpac. God bless you and god bless america. Thank you all. Do i say oh. And they had to play his his exit song. Young men You know dancing though. I didn't see any. He walked right off stage I think it's because he had people backstage. Because they said he met with people before and then he met with people after and then he did a bunch interviews because he was on newsmax and then on forget. I don't know who else you talked to. Did he talk to tucker or anybody like that. I don't think so. I don't think any way boy was he late though and then they said at god what time was four o'clock he just left palm beach twenty minutes ago. Jeez i was like we were. I was sitting in front of him. In my little barcalounger. they're watching. Tv waiting for him to come and they kept on saying newsmax and the president can show up shortly and they said you know they'll let us know when he's in the building and then all of a sudden you text out. He hasn't even have he just left on beach county. I'm like you kidding me. Like at like four fifteen. Yeah john roberts said that on fox and the rest of them on the panel you know. They're all in the squares on the tv Monitor the all kinds of and went. Wow we have to feel now for an hour before he hits the stage but he did. It was great. It was a good speech. It was we did. He hit on every topic that every republican is concerned about right The main one being a year Kids being home. He said all kids should be in school. Just think if he were president still your kid would be in school. You wouldn't have had to quit your job. Yeah home to home school. Your child and all would be well. You'd still have a job and your kid would be in school. I think that would have been priority one. I think because most people you know the general it was such a large he could a cross cut of the demographic of people watching this thing. Yesterday it was the biggest concern for most people watching it. Was this kid's in school issue because it affects so many things it really was. I'm i'm dying to see because i have not seen any statistics yet. But what percentage of families had somebody quit a job to stay home with the kids. I i bet you. It's huge massive in my little world to do that's crazy and that was before you know in thank god in florida. We had that only for a brief period of time right now. Imagine go through that for a full year. Let new york just started elementary and middle school today. I think it was today they went. I'm like are you kidding me. It's been a year so you've been home with your kid and then of course you couldn't do anything with your kid because all of new york was shut down. That's why. I think the box office was so big this weekend. Finally get you can get out and do something. It was an actual box office to talk about. Not big but at tom and jerry movie not on each max but in a actual theater made fourteen million bucks a you know and i bet any money. Most it was for most parents saying you know what you've been home for a year. You've been great homeschooling on a computer. We know there's been challenges but you know what here's we're going to give you a treat today and take you back to the movie theater. Buy some popcorn and a snickers bar and get your all caffeine. He can only stay inside so long. You can't do it anymore. Crossing no i would. I would never. I would not have done well at all. I would've been crazy. I i would. I would be flunking out of school. I could never do it online. So give these kids credit. I think you can have a lot of people just just staying back to do in the year over whenever they can. Because it's probably your best bet. And then i'm sure there's other kids the outliers. That actually jumped zoomed ahead with charles. But but it's probably in the minority. I would agree. I mean i know a few people whose kids graduated early because of it is but it's it's like a handful out of everybody. I know now the rest most of them are still in school. Know like an aso. It's even the i mean. Private schools public schools. Martin county is a matter of fact they have open enrollment today so you can go to any of their schools. Wow it was nice The senate's has these the stimulus package bill before them today. It's one point nine trillion dollars. It'd be paying for that for well. Our great great great grandkids will be paying for them with seventy five thousand dollar cut off. It would be fourteen hundred bucks direct payment to people with adjusted gross income of that so for a family of four. You could possibly get fifty six hundred bucks. We'll see hold onto it because of what the president said last night about the energy situation in this country to the keystone pipeline was. Shut down right after you know Biden's by everything back from saudi arabia. Or wherever the heck it's coming from syria that Gas prices what did he say. Five or six bucks a gallon. I like saying that because he's not usually wrong about those things this the biden administration's way of getting more people to go electric. You force it no. i think it's just. He's so stupidly. Got us dependent on foreign oil again. That's what it is. What's up by the way just to go off. Track a stan. What's up with the saudi arabian that. He publicly came out on. Saturday and friday started it but saturday came up publicly and said the prince knew exactly what was going on. And we're blaming him directly. Why are you ticking. Off the saudis. We just got peace in the middle east. And you're doing this. He did exactly what trump was talking about during the speeches. Our it's a lot of things behind the scenes. You didn't hear trump played that perfectly. He knew the saudis lopped off that guy's head but he didn't call him out for it because we had a chip we something over their shoulder. Behold look what started to happen all of a sudden they wanted to start talking about peace and other countries. Start talking about peace holy cow. We got peace in the middle east without a drop of blood shed from our country and and biden goes and throws that prints were they using the had everything to do with it. He made it a public fight when he didn't have to again. He's an idiot. Wow it was not good. I don't know what the the reasoning was behind matt. I was like oh not a good thing to do. Don't take off the saudis. You know they could shut down that pipeline. Now that we're by all the oil from them like holy cow. Don't do this to us. I wonder sometimes. They're really really wonder also wonder where priorities lie in. This country lady gaga wanted to the dogs get kidnapped. We remember dognapped was thursday thursday night maybe thursday night her Poor dog walker. He's out there. His name is ryan fisher walking dogs in hollywood. She wasn't around. I forget what she was out of the countries. I guess she's filming a movie somewhere else. to people jump out of a car. The poor dog walker shot three times. Two of the three dogs or dog napped and gaga instantly comes out and says i'll give you a half million dollars for the return by dogs. I'm like what about the poor walker. This guy gets shot not a word. Nothing well apparently later that night some woman who is out wandering around found two of the dogs two dogs that were dognapped tied to a pole. Not really far from a quarter of a mile from where they were taken. She brought him to the police and said i'm pretty sure these are lady gaga dogs gaga is going to give her the half million dollars as promised because she found the dogs. They're fine and then gaga had to come on say the way i'm taking care of all of ryan fisher's medical bills. I'm thinking you should have probably said that i instead. I'll give you half a million dollars half a million dollars for the return of the dog ryan's medical bills ninety seven grand. I'm thinking wow maybe you should give him some of the money just the way. This was reported not even mention of dog walker. It was like no big deal. But i guess maybe it was already taken care of. And that's why she figured she she wouldn't mention it but within who flew the dogs to europe. She is all. I'm sure it was her staff. Wow you know. i'm sure they had. I'm sure she's gonna play. This woman's worth mega millions now. Did you notice the. Did you notice what happened here as soon as in. It's a weird connection how we got involved. I guess their friends as soon as danny home magette day. That's right got involved with this case all of a sudden these guys much as involved. We're going to give the dogs back. We're not busting down doors. We just know people that drive around. Say hey look there's so they targeted her. You know the police. They have a lot of stuff to do. So we'll take care of it. That's what he's saying so glad. You brought that up. Because i was wondering what happened. The danny trae ho and ask a few days later. The dogs are back. All different wasn't it. What's he got involved with like tied to a tree in this. They they said they were just like a couple of miles aware they were taken so they must. They must have known something was up right. Say either that or it went viral so quickly they knew they were going to get caught with tied the dogs up to a poll when Vicente says he knows people. You'd better give those dogs back. I think Actor danny trio kept his context from the hood. You know what i'm saying. Yes yeah we're not knocking on doors. Yeah but everything else cow. God love him. Been you get a dog. Science has come up with the most attractive dogs in the world. Science is also full of crap. Yeah they are. This is not true at all. You know it's one of those. Like fake controversies to produce clicks. And whatever thing they've come up with your so true so true. Because i don't agree with any of it. What happens if you were getting plastic surgery done and all of a sudden the doctor goes Hook my zoom call. I got a Traffic court date while you're on the table now. This guy's in big trouble. That's coming up next south florida morning. Show this jen. I'm bill keeps here. Fifty w. f. t. l. south florida morning. Show this gender diener. Bill get news about eleven minutes. Give or take a couple knows. See how that goes and Boy tell you what she's going to have in the news. Andy cuomo's in some trouble. Well would it trouble when nancy pelosi turns on you and then turns on you. Your days are numbered. I don't care who you are. they will make sure. Your days are numbered. I want them out. It's clear now they do. They circle the wagons like nobody else bills but when they go after you they take you down and and she. Nancy pelosi came out with Her comments i think it was right after they did. The trump speech wrap up and all of a sudden. The big headline was nc. Pelosi says All these charges against these allegations against andrew cuomo are Serious and viable and we need to take a look at it and i went. He's done he's done he's done and we were laughing about this friday. It's no joke anymore. It's ironic still but it'll be the sexual harassment. Claims that this guy taken care of getting them removed. But the unfortunate part is they're completely burying the fifteen thousand plus people got killed a nursing home. Yeah i it should be interesting. I would love to see genus. The weather machine over at Fox news she's probably been the most vocal and then it turned out to be this Ron kim is that his name. The assemblymen right. He was the one who said that He supported basically what janice dean has been saying. I think it was his parents or his inlaws died. And he said that andrew cuomo is responsible for it then he said. The governor called them up like five times in threaten his life threatening jobs. And i'm gonna destroy you and so he's been very vocal so between then. There was a group of them. How many were there outside the state house or where. Where was it member when they were they were city hall. City hall is a lot of people. There are a lot there so i. I don't think any of those people are going to let that go unnoticed. That he because of his laws what he did in new york he killed. They're estimating fifteen thousand people in nursing and that's gonna get totally overlooked unfortunate totally. Which is the shame of this. Well which always you know. we always talk about. Here's the shiny ball over here. The shiny ball is the sexual assault comments. Because now you're not gonna worry about what happened with the nursing home and that way you don't pay attention to what the democratic party was also in support of so that way. They're saved in they get rid of their problem. He becomes the sacrificial lamb. We got an a complaint this morning by the way we did a dr. Andy cuomo coverage. Oh the somebody likes him would I wouldn't go that. I don't know they just don't like us. Oh well that's understandable last name but this is from edward edward edward ready. She's even dinner doesn't like us. Maybe we'll delve into the mail bag after this gives excuse. Here's the message. So cuomo is a monster your words but trump no problem with how many women have accused him of sexual harassment. You sound ridiculous. Put on that voice because edwards sounds like he's about a thousand years old so cuomo is a monster because he killed because of his policy in minimum of fifteen thousand. Elderly people were sitting ducks in nursing. On how many old people did trump kill. Ed and also i believe the monster comment came up because of this cuomo also actually went after the first accuser this weekend and said we need to factor in the fact that she is a sexual assault survivor. I understand so we need to take that into consideration. You know what pal. That's a monster who says that. Let me say it again for you. A monster got it ed. Nice and clear a monster. Yes yes associate words and you kinda putting in the trump to if you want to make that comparison a lot of that stuff was drummed up or asia. I mean allegedly jumped up because there was never any proof to it. There was it was just all these weird claims that were coming out and most of the women who came out to say that ed talking to you again recanted later on because said he i you know i was just told the say that they tried to impeach this guy one of the like posthumously after he was out of office don't you think if they found one of these accusers with credible information they would have blasted this for four straight years. Your guess what did they didn't so there you go okay. You can hate us even more now. I like it. I i still like it. Mean if you're going to listen to. I like but i mean you just add wrong. It's all gave us some filler content for two minutes because of that you want to hear some good one. Yeah woods what we have one from. Casey and this actually came from a thursday. We talked about share. We were talking about the jeep cherokee having coming into fire people wanting to change their name because of the cherokee name we talked about share because she was part cherokee so. I said just ridiculously sounds good. I thought it would be cool. Stage name. I was like oh i wonder. If share got her name from cherokee shorten it is the stage name. That'd be cool. Well casey our friend. Casey corrected us said morning. Love your show. Guys and share is short for sherline. Oh okay now. We know why. I share a letter or senator an email and just say hey you know what go with the cherokee had looked were me. I'd be sure. Casey and duke had a good point here. Actually luke duke friend duke listener named duke entat's a win that rate named rate for us from friday. He said i think hasbro was four thinking. When mr potato head i it was this was about the mr getting cancelled when mr potato head first hit the market they released mrs potato head and you can change gender or mr potato head by fixing female parts. Yeah you know what good point duke. The solution was there all along. It's it just needed the potato. That's it you can learn from duke. And casey and how to make some good points right there. You go all right duke. In the it's fantastic. Cutest dog easing securities. Beagle bill my dog. Cooper who is a palm sqi according to a new study they. They picked the cutest brands. Based on the golden ratio. How symmetrical their face. Ears tongue and other features are the winner by far dalmatian really followed by irish water. Spaniel wire fox. The lab came in fourth number. Five the bassett you never say no. Basset hound droopy. Yeah that was her mascot for basketball. Anyway we gotta to go Ed you can listen to us and hate us more tomorrow.

As Hurricane Dorian hits East Coast, Trump doubles down on 'Sharpie-gate'

"Hurricane dorian is calling up the carolinas. Donald trump is defending his gaffe. Bill karen will give us the fact something people need on the weather tonight as well as a lot of other stories including donald trump rating money from puerto rico and military dare daycare centers to try to get money for the wall which he said famously mexico would be funding and it can convert roger stone will testify at that trial which of course grew out of the miller probe. We have that tonight as well so all of those stories including in a few minutes more on the politics but we begin in right now looking at these live pictures of this storm making its way up the east coast is we can slightly to a technical category two hurricane but heavy winds are walloping coastal communities preparing for storm surge and contending with potential tornadoes at least three people in the united states have died just in the midst of preparing for this storm. The bahamas struggle to recover from that devastation. That's been reported all week. Twenty people there now dead but in the midst of all of this and this this is serious stuff as hundreds of thousands of americans already are dealing in situations where they're scared where they're worried. They don't have power where there are life threatening conditions. We were told rolled by our own u._s. Government it is fitting perhaps for twenty nineteen to see what the president is focused on continuing to double down and defend false and phony claims that he originally made a mistake which by the way anyone could have made and corrected when he wrongly said alabama was in the storm's path. They're six more tweets about this today. This comes of course after donald trump punked himself. There's really no other way to describe it when he used a apparently used a black sharpie to show what you see there this doctored map of the storm's path that occurred in otherwise serious briefing in the oval office. The president is focused here on petty had you cover up on basically massaging his own ego and all of this is a split screen contrast for the two thousand nineteen air that you see right here donald trump state of mind obsessed with his own alabama err on twitter as america and other parts of the caribbean deal with this very you still serious store. That is a portrait. We want to turn now to the right side of the screen to the factual side n._b._c. Meteorologist bill cairns guides this to so many of these situations sir. What do we know well. We know that we're about to see the impacts of a hurricane. We haven't had hurricane conditioned anywhere on land since the storm left of a hamas as we have tropical storm conditions florida georgia south carolina but we haven't had hurricane conditions. There's a big difference. That's when you get the damage. That's when the trees down a lot of power outages they've had scattered stuff up to this this point but now we're starting to see the center of the storm the eye we're all the powerful winds are approaching areas right around wright's fill the wilmington area. That's what we're gonna be watching. The evening wind hundred learned ten miles per hour. That's nothing to sneeze at is still a good strong category. Two hurricane only a little bit higher and it's still a category three major so the problem. We've had all day long these outer outer bands. This has been producing numerous tornadoes visit a tornado watch. It's an eastern north carolina. Who've had eleven tornadoes significant damage done to a bunch of structures haven't heard heard of any injuries or fatalities thankfully but that's still concerned through the night nets not even with the is that's just the outer bands so here's the forecast from the hurricane center. If we time this out it it goes past the wilmington area. I don't know if we're going to get a landfall or not but at least a portion of the i will be through this beach area. That'll be happening as go from about nine. Pm until about midnight and and then by about two to three a._m. Potential landfall carter county here morehead city area atlantic beach beaufort north carolina and then going over the outer banks towards sunrise. When we wake up tomorrow morning it should be somewhere here near cape hatteras for the buxton area and then heading out to see it as far as the biggest impacts go. We have one more high tide cycle to go through. That'll it'll be later on tonight and then of course we're gonna have to watch out with potential that heavy rain flash flooding in these winds even morehead city tonight when that makes landfall possibility winds up to one hundred miles per hour so again if we're gonna have this is going to be in the lower forty eight a big deal. That's going to require people to be without power. We're gonna have storm surge issues. Everything's going to happen in the the next eighteen hours because we're done with this by about noon tomorrow understood and hopefully most of the devastation is over bill karen's as we've come to rely on. You are relying on you throughout throughout. Thank you as always sir appreciate it. Now we mentioned the president's state of mind focused on during as we've said something that's caused americans lives. Does this cost people in the bahamas lives. He's tweeting and defending his false claim that he thought alabama could have been in the storm's path now. He tried to back that up in a number of ways he shared aired map of the storm's potential routes. This is a donald trump tweet but as you see that map was a week old was out of date when trump made his aronie is claim about dorian hitting alabama on sunday a weekend when he said he was focused on monitoring the storm. It also includes a disclaimer. If anything on this graphic causes confusion ignore ignore the entire product all of this after donald trump of course got himself in this mass by doubling down with his blown-up map of the storm's path which included the extra line appear to to be drawn in sharpy by someone someone using a sharpie in the oval office that was designed to try to edit what you see in the way line and say that the black black line under the red arrow somehow meant trump was right all along now again. I can't report for you confirmation. We don't have for example oval office video surveillance about whether donald trump drew that that line and the white house won't really say much. We don't know if it wasn't a president who else would have done it. Sometimes in these self inflicted gas you get a blame game going but we do know it's technically illegal to put out false weather reports. So what about the d._h._s. Permanent homeland security well. They're referring questions about the map back to the white house and we do know what donald trump said when he was actually confronted about again something that should have been a non issue that he made into an issue. Donald trump wasn't matter surprise about it. He didn't didn't say he'd make an effort to track down the culprit either. I don't know i don't know undoing when he to tolerate his campaign director for the center for american progress action fund sam cedar is the host the majority report radio show good evening to both of view sam <hes>. This is a lighter story so i know you i not because you're a lightweight but because you have a familiarity with these issues i know from listening to you on the radio. Sometimes you mix. You've mixed the serious with the absurd. What does it say against the backdrop of the serious that we've just reported and we got our weather facts from bill cairns that this is the state of the mind of the president united states and people who say they're not surprised. Is that good enough or should we be more than surprise. Should we be disappointed. Well yeah of course. I think we should be disappointed. I think we should be a little bit nervous. Frankly i mean i have no idea what this says about his state of the mind but his mind but it's not great but i think there's something other that's going on here and i would never credit donald trump with with some type of grand strategy edge or even. I don't know how much we can attribute to these being thoughtful tactics you know if you listen to some of the right wing radio there talking about this as the media's going after him for a gaffe right and there's a lot of things that none of us are talking about going on right now that i think you know if you're a staffer for donald donald trump. You're thinking that maybe this is not necessarily. I mean they wouldn't have chosen this but since it's there it's not necessarily the worst thing to talk about because you got to keep keep in mind on one hand. Donald trump's making these gaffes but all this week the presumptive frontrunner of the democratic party has made some very major gaffes himself and so when they're thinking about the campaign which of course they are. Maybe they're thinking let's keep it on less substantial things and keep it in this gaffe round because we don't necessarily have deficit well. There's always that balance. I think it's a fair point to consider as you say whether or not it's deliberate to. I don't want to turn this discussion to you. Know a tease for what else is in the broadcast tonight but we have a special report tonight on the way the trump administration's gutting payday loans and trying to protect abusive financial essential lenders. I think that's the story they might not on the air. It'll still be on the air tonight. We have a congressman talking immigration. We try to cover a lot of things here and yet juanita. We know that the president doesn't liked to be humiliated and yet he seems to have self owned here. Take a look at the way it's playing in late night. This was the original chart it which did not include alabama and this is what trump showed us today with alabama. Don't get me wrong. I'm impressed that trump can locate locate alabama on a map but still louis this. I mean after this. I have to wonder if his high school report card was legit. I really did juanita which you'll notice. Most of those clips of late night jokes didn't involve a lot of writing or addition. It was just sort of showing people watching a comedy show. This is the president and that's exactly what it is. This is the president who just can't seem to fathom using the words. We got it wrong. He will do anything to say face will do anything to protect his ego and even if it means force-feeding this false information to the american public what i think should be alarming to most people is that he is continuously pressing this message at what point sure it can be as a distraction but in reality it's because he believes it. He really wants to to drive this home and we should all be long by that because i'm sure this is the same approach like at the end of the day. Trump is commander in chief. He is the one who controls our military forces. He's the one in the situation room and his approach to this is probably being mirrored in those other situations so this as a lot of red flags for the american public that he is doubling down on this and force feeding this narrative to the american public when american's lives are at risk right now. That's the part that's really bizarre and i don't know how much you follow follow bill cairns who was on just before you but he's not into what you might call political tweets or sassy tweets. If you know the term right yes he's a less sassy tweeter than you. As far as i know and yet take a look at what he felt compelled to do. In his role as mu geologist he writes to the president. Sorry today is not about you. We have a billion billion dollar weather disaster unfolding in south carolina and north carolina where does that fit in the idea that apart from any other political analysis <hes> it's hard for donald trump to watch something that really is about the serious act of governing and preparation and dealing with hardship and not not inserting himself right well. I mean look we've seen him. Do this. A many times before some things that had less consequences like <hes> <hes> you know the the inaugural attendants and then there are a host of other things where he's just simply a lied about stuff often then refused to back down off. I mean i think you know the question is really is like how much will this ultimately hurt him with the american public for a lot of us. We're we're like yeah. This is par for the course and of course in this instance. There's a real danger that people could be in jeopardy because they actually listened to the president president and take him seriously or literally as it were but you know i think it speaks volumes that it is politicizing people like like weathermen in meteorologist in that respect and so i mean maybe it'll have some greater impact beyond this. It's it's genuinely bizarre. Though yeah <hes> salmon juanita my thanks to both of you. We're gonna fit in a break and come back in just thirty seconds. Donald trump's new plan taking disaster money to pay for the border wall congressman anthony brown here key to roger stone has agreed to testify as a government witness at that big trial and later a former f._b._i. Agent who spent eight years infiltrating white supremacist groups here and tonight something. We're very excited about my special interview with award-winning novelist salman rushdie. We're gonna talk trump at a whole lot more more and we'll be back in just thirty seconds. This episode is brought to you by cox with contour t._v. From cox you can find all your favorites all in one place it does it have the youtube you bet el what about that netflix thing netflix too and although superhero movies movies contour has all the latest titles on demand. Oh my grandkids love that big green guy. I prefer the one with the hammer myself okay okay. I think we're done here now. Get all your favorite apps shows and movies right on tv from cox. It's official. Donald trump wants americans to pay for the border wall and today we're learning the pentagon is now formerly directing acting four hundred million dollars that was designed to serve as island recovery for the devastation from hurricane maria well. That's going elsewhere the administration the station also taking money from military projects all over the country. You're looking at just some of the headlines we found on all of this today. Even donald trump's allies over at fox news are saying well. There's at least one obvious problem for him. Politically which is this is all drawing clear attention to how he broke a promise and they're saying he should have never promised mexico would fund the wall trump rage elementary schools to pay for a wall mexico off the hook right. The president never should've said mexico's gonna pay for the wall. All louie says they're going to get it in fees at border crossings. I think he did think initially that <hes> he would find a way for mexico to pay for it but as we know that did not work congressman. Anthony brown of maryland joins me to military projects. There are being canceled to help fund this wall. I given in your role in that local representation aspect before we get to everything else is this good for your constituents is a good for maryland. Now first of all are it's actually three. It's bad for my constituents. It's bad for maryland and it's bad for the country. One of them is a childcare center this. Is you have children right now. Who are in a world war. Two era a building that's dilapidated. We would have built capacity given them a modern a facility but instead we've got families whose children will now be on a wait list and they're going to spend spend ten thousand dollars more per family per child <hes> for childcare because donald trump wants to build a wall it impacts morale and which impacts military readiness and sometimes we have to do is hold officials accountable. Take them at their word even if they lie a lot. I wanna play for your for your response. The president then candidate trumps claims about who would pay for the wall. Take a look believe me mexico's else paying for the wall. Okay that's win. If i become president mexico will pay for the wall and by the way mexico will pay for the wall. They will pay that. I could tell mexico's sagoes going to pay for the wall. They don't know it yet. They don't know starting to have a very good idea but that's okay and mexico is going to pay for the wall and they'll be happy to do are democrats going to hammer that aspect of this. There's what he is taking the money from you spoke to that but there's also a what looks to be one of the the greatest now most famous broken promises in modern american history now. We're actually gonna do that because mexico's not paying for the wall. It's the american tax payers but i think it's important to put a face on. Who's really paying for it. It is that family with a child who now no longer as military child care it is that special forces <hes> unit in europe. No longer has a facility to support their important and most often dangerous mission. <hes> it's the residents and servicemembers in puerto rico. You mentioned this in the in the opening <hes> who are not going to have a power generation plant that was destroyed in hurricane. Maria restored award with that funding <hes> so that's who's actually paying for it and that's the face of of the people who are impacted by the president's misleading statement throughout his his campaign. Why have you wanna ask on immigration. Is you know a lot of controversy and some backtracking about people inside the united states awaiting healthcare sometimes as for life threatening conditions a._c._l._u. and civil rights groups are now filing against the trump administration with a lawsuit. They're calling it. A quote abrupt termination of this long standing program protects seriously. Ill people from deportation what they call the risk of death the administration's action they argue is unconscionable also illegal your view of that suit route and what do you and democrats in congress intend to do about this issue right well. Listen congress is going to stay vigilant on whether it's the military construction project issue issue or whether it's this healthcare and immigration issue and we also know that there are many lawsuits pending against this administration ranging from the border wall <hes> to we saw a <hes> a recent case on the citizenship question and now on healthcare and immigration so those battles and need to happen in the courts awards but it's not a substitute for the work that congress has to do so whether we're using our oversight role <hes> appropriations and we've got appropriations coming up this month in september as we pass a budget. We've gotta use all the tools available to make sure that we're holding this administration accountable carson brown. Thank you as always good to talk with you. Thanks sorry up ahead. There's important hearing on white supremacist violence in america today. We have a former f._b._i. Agent who actually infiltrated those very groups here here tonight. That should be an interesting discussion. Also my special report tonight on how donald trump is not only profiting off the presidency but the way the swamp is growing affecting acting american consumers but first a new setback for roger stone's trial his wingman ready to testify against him that important muller story is next developments in this pending case from the muller pro prosecutors now planning to make roger stone's wingmen testified his trial in november witness is named andrew miller now he fought a muller subpoena for a year and he's worked for stone for about a decade including joining him the 2016 eighteen g._o._p. Convention a period when trump was taking over the republican party and fallout continued from those russian hacks to help donald trump testimony rounds out prosecutors excuses plans. They'll use him and randy credit go to argue that stone knew what he was doing when he allegedly obstructed the mueller probe and tampered with witnesses stone was arrested on a seven count indictment obstruction five counts of false statements including lying to congress about wikileaks and then one count of witness tampering against the potential witness and now how confirmed witness randy critic. Mr stone has not pleaded has pleaded not guilty. I am joined by former federal prosecutor john flannery good to see you sir good to see you you here we are this is a reminder to everyone that cases take time trump. Miller has closed up shop. Some people he targeted are in jail like mr cohen and mr manafort others awaiting trial like mr stone. Who is we mentioned is legally presumed innocent. What does it tell you that the prosecutors who continue muller's work work. I have zeroed in basically on these two witnesses mr miller who's less known and mr credit co who who some viewers may remember well they identified them in the indictment i mean not by name but person one and person to and it was pretty clear <hes> what they had to say and you've had <hes> an interesting exchanges mr coursey in the past asked about how you told the truth about his lies and the lies were to you know get the senate and house off what really happened there which is what communications on how they were made with wiki leaks and gay could have anticipated unknown when the trench of documents was gonna come down particularly the doc tober seventh <hes> developments and then <hes> credit co is in a position who have actually had <hes> assange who's now sitting in the london tower as has a guest on his show and we're waiting until next year for assange to come to america and so we have stone who's in the past that he liked to have assange come and testify perform but he has another witness he could use could ask mr trump to come for him. I'm sure you would like that. I think when it comes to credit co though you know our job is not just to look at the negative information and we've covered there is a lot of negative stuff on mr stone but also to look at what his defense counsel will be able to do they will try to show a kind <music> of ridiculousness or a silliness to all of this in the same way that we hear sometimes people say oh. The defendant said words that sound bad but they weren't serious. They weren't literal. They weren't knowing they. Weren't you know serious. They were if nothing else jokes. Listen to what randy critical told me when i pressed him really on well. Why did this all happen. Why was roger lying to the feds about him and others. Take a look now that the probe is over. Do you have any idea why it was important to roger roger to blame you for something. That muller found involved coursey conundrum inside a riddle inside a rubik's cube. I really do not know why he had to do that. If he had just told the truth he wouldn't be. I wouldn't be here today none of us. I don't know why he went before the house intel committee mitty he could have been folk to fifth. There's no reason to do it don't you. Don't you think that mr stones lawyers will have some <unk> argument on their side to say wasn't that serious and to really go at these witnesses including krittika well. I think that what you have there is it was better to have critical look like he was the player because <hes> to go with coursey brought it closer to <hes> stone so i think that he was a sacrifice and he said he couldn't understand understand it but that's the way i think these people operate and <hes> of course he was in communication supposedly with credit kota having access to assange which appears to have been established and other means and you talk about you know is this all a joke and the trouble with that <hes> theory of defense is that there are are so many communications and so many questions and i do wonder if the <hes> cohen conversation that he overheard between stone and trump will find his way in as a similar similar act or part of a big. That's a that's a big interesting. What my last question for you is. Do you think roger stone would would take the stand and should he. I wouldn't put him on the stand. I'll tell you why in every case civil and criminal when you put the client on the stand they make real things things that are questionable so if the theory of the defense in this case is to beat up the government and say the smock knicks. There's nothing here then oh what they should do. Is you keep off the standard ceo the he didn't show their case particularly if they hurt the witnesses. Who have you know they've been on both sides of these issues at different times and you're right. That's the damaging thing for jury to hear but you know birds of a feather flock together and that's what juries also decide. Would you be willing to come back and covered the case with us when it goes to trial. Oh yeah are you kidding. Keep stick. I would like that. I think some of our viewers hopefully would too because john flannery. A former federal prosecutor knows his way around kind of trials. Thank you sir. Thank you nice to be with you. Nice to have you appreciate it now. Coming up something i've been promising for you guys a special report sportsnight on what lobbyists are getting out of the trump administration after spending big at his own durao resort and later a former f._b._i. Agent who actually infiltrated white supremacy <unk> groups is here congress holding key hearing today an later another special interview what a show tonight salman rushdie on the be on trump and truth his first time here that's coming up networks special report tonight on policy and profiteering in the trump era congress has already probing the potential corruption and donald trump pushing his own florida hotel the host the next g seven summit. It's another other in a string of examples of donald trump trying to profit off his government job. Industry groups have also been following trump's lead report tonight focuses on an industry. That's gotten gotten quite a bit less attention than other issues these days payday lenders and their lobbyists have spent a million dollars trumpster our resort for their annual conferences sending ending prophets to trump with a tab featuring steak and shrimp entrees at an open bar and durrell has a bottle of trump's sparkling wine from monticello that goes for eighteen dollars a glass now these payday lenders aren't just to use. Maybe a new phrase partying bill bar which is when you spend money at a trump trump hotel to impress trump. They're also getting money. Thanks to trump policies and that's the important part of this special report. Let me walk you. Through this the month before these lobbyists convention at durrell trump official running a key consumer protection bureau gutted regulations that protect consumers that could protect most americans from potential abused by these same payday lenders. They ended a rule that restricts payday lenders from preying on people who can't afford and there are loans in the first place trump administration also backing lenders in a lawsuit gunning for many of those same protection rules now this this is all about how these companies their financial institutions target vulnerable lower income people who are desperate to get money fast fast when we say money in time we mean money when you needed up to ten thousand dollars in your bank account by tomorrow based on trusting you with no security you have any kind gestures signature money really does grow on trees but it doesn't grow on trees you could say it falls from trees along along with some very heavy burdens for paying that money back which is why as you may remember then professor elizabeth warren proposed a bureau to protect against exactly this kind of abuse and then ed president obama embraced millions of american families are hemorrhaging money right now today date and tomorrow and next week on tricks and traps in predator products. We're going to fix that. The consumer financial protection bureau will be a watchdog for the american consumer charged with enforcing the toughest financial protections in history. Now that was the bureau the president obama tasks warren to run republican senators though blocked or nomination which actually in a footnote to history freed up her time to run for office where she defeated feed it a republican senator and pave the way for current presidential campaign as a side note. It's one mitch mcconnell strategy that totally backfired on him but meanwhile on these policies you have the trump administration trying to limit that same bureau that warren helped create from continuing this work that warne and obama and other experts said is so vital to protect detect so many americans now. This problem has no partisan colors payday lenders prey on people in states red and blue. They've set off debt cycles for most consumers because about eighty percent percents these loans basically rollover and forced new costs on the borrowers now about twenty states already have made the most abusive payday loans illegal twelve million americans still get caught up in the middle and the huge fees go back to these lenders to the tune of five billion dollars now big picture. This is a classic test of whether the law aw protects you regardless of how much money you have. That warren has of you here. She argues these lenders shouldn't even be allowed to loan out what they know. People cannot afford to to pay back. Basically the argument is they're using their financial power to trap you potentially loan fees that are larger than the original loans. The people even ask for like so many americans preacher. Mary love knows what it's like to be tight on cash so when she started to fall oh behind on her rent she went for quick fix. Things quickly spiraled out of control. She says she couldn't repay the loan because the interest rate was far too high for her on her four hundred dollar loan. She ended up paying one thousand four hundred twenty dollars in interest alone about a year later. That's more than three hundred percent three times what she i corrode. That's also not fair. You don't need to be a financial expert to understand. The experts know what they're doing. They're taking advantage advantage of people who sometimes don't this is the key part. This is what makes payday loan so dangerous even a small what they call principal with this crazy high <hes> interest rate adds up very quickly and because these terms are basically hidden in formulas laid out in all kinds of tricks like counting weeks instead of years. Well people get confused used now. This is a trick that democratic congresswoman katie quarter illustrated when she was grilling. Donald trump's pick to lead this bureau zero if you could even ballpark on a two hundred dollar loan for a term of two weeks with a twenty dollar origination fee and a rate of ten dollars per one hundred that is ten percent ballpark. What is the a._p._r. And i'm telling you that the a._p._r. Calcutta no is is a math exercise and the question but the clinton am. I going need to pay off the turmeric claiming they take us to a no that you cannot do the calculation know that you can't do the calculation that little moment actually went enviro because the question exposes the problem if the experts are trump's appointee can't even say how these loans work then. Maybe it's not fair to trap people in i and then threatened them with bankruptcy for something. Lenders shouldn't have pushed in the first place now. This protection bureau was supposed to patrol that kind of abuse and it did under the obama obama director. It got results taking forty three million dollars a week back from those financial interests in plowing towards consumers. That's a figure that absolutely crash by over ninety percent now. The trump's director is in charge the difference there well. It's over forty million dollars. That's what with these payday. Lenders are celebrating at trump's resort and what's a few hundred thousand dollars in fees an eighteen dollar glass of sparkling trump wine in comparison into the millions. These groups are now saving getting back earning under donald trump's policies protecting them. This is a sorry scene. It is literally early millionaires celebrating money extracted from some of the poorest americans to tricky loans that shouldn't have been offered in the first place that is what these swamp looks like back when it has no shame now up ahead we have more in tonight's show including this growing supremacy violence crisis a key hearing in in congress today and a former f._b._i. Agent infiltrated some of these groups is here with me and then later as promised something we're very excited about the award winning world famous novelist salman rushdie makes makes his debut on the beat a day house. Democrats are doing what they claim. The trump administration won't to address. This is growing threat documented around our country of white. Supremacist violence considered the owner of the website. H chan is now testifying after facing a subpoena by lawmakers noting that three of the acts of white supremacist violence were linked to that very website this year alone. There's been a wave of mass shootings drive by extremists this type of hate. You can think about el paso about california think about internationally the issues in new zealand well. My next guest has special insights into this. Mike german is a former f._b._i. Agent spent years infiltrating white supremacist hate groups the f._b._i. Now says forty percent of the eight hundred and fifty domestic terror cases. They're investigating relate to race or religion. This is an exclusive interview. Mike germans here and i should mention his new book is disrupt discredit and divide how the new f._b._i. Damages democracy. It's coming out next week so great to have you. Let's get right into this. <hes> what is important understand about this growing threat well. I think the most important thing to understand that this moment is is that the u._s. Department of justice doesn't even know how many people white supremacists kill each year and that's because they have through a matter of policy deep prioritized the investigation and prosecution of white supremacists crimes for decades now and it's really important that congress is now taking taking these steps and having a number of hearings to try to understand what it is. We haven't been looking at over the last couple of decades. So how do we know what we know for example example. I'm going to show folks from the data. We do have the rise in in some of these incidents. You have this thirty five percent increase in what they call right. Wing extremists related killings that's a._g. L. you're saying the government hasn't caught up with that kind of tracking right. The government does not keep an official count so it's they rely on private groups like the defamation league and some academic institutions like the star program at the university of maryland's extremist crime database database and they do is as good a job as they can but they can only identify crime if the police have already identified it as a crime or the media has identified it as a crime time related to white supremacist violence but we have to understand that half of the violence in the united states today goes unsolved and that insurance fort forty percent of the murders orders in the united states go unsolved and because the justice department has this policy of deep prioritizing the investigation of white supremacists crimes. We don't know how much a chip that violence is related to to these groups. What did you learn when you were actually infiltrating. These groups drove these people. Was it a turning point. It could never they can never turn back it was it was a very complex movement is one of the things i understood. There are a lot of different groups that might have the same goal of a racially pure white ethnics society <hes> but they have different ideologies philosophies and even theologies that justified his behavior and there's an awful lot of friction between them and discontent between them where they don't get along with each other and a lot of the violence involved in these groups oops is intergroup violence <hes> the other thing i learned about and i understand better than <hes> than a lot of other terrorists and researchers researchers is the association between white supremacist violence and state violence. We have to understand that these ideologies aren't some some fringe element of our society. They were actually founding principles of our country that justified slavery justified european colonization justified justified the the genocide of indigenous people and really up until just recently justified jim crow laws and dan systematic racial discrimination so it's really only in our recent history that w- that we've even enshrined civil rights in law in a way that would that would that would suppress these ideologies yeah. It's well laid out a serious problem. You've got a lot of experience on it and the book wall sad is hopefully a timeline part of the solution. I should mention again for folks interested disrupt discrediting divide how the new f._b._i. Damages democracy new for my german next week our thanks again fitting in a break and then turning to something very excited about acclaimed author. Someone rushdie not afraid to speak his mind. I'm going to get into politics truth and his new book when we come back often feels more divided than ever and many turn to music culture art and literature these sometimes not always to escape from our reality but even to better understand reality and there may be few better to answer all of those kind of questions and my very next guest who's out with a brand a new book exploring the outlandish world of savante don quixote but set in the middle of a troubling american landscape. That may be familiar to people watching right now. This is salman rushdie author fourteen novels winner of the man booker prize. The new book is kiesha shortlisted for the booker prize so great to have have you here on the beat. Thank you sir. Thank you delighted to be here. Let's start with all of these parallels. What were you thinking of in today's politics and in culture in writing the book this way the novel i wrote before took place almost entirely in new york city and when i finished it i thought next time get out out of town. I really wanted to do something which was more panoramic. Look at america not just something written from my hometown by the accident. I chance to read again. The survivors novel don quixote in that it made me think that variation of that character would be a very helpful full guide to what's going on because the thing about him my character key shots as well as iran character is that they have a kind of sweetness to them. They have a kind of innocence and optimism to them and i thought if i could take this is kind of holy fool this innocent optimistic man this dreamer send him mileage against across the country that may not be having its most optimistic moment the contrast would be. I hope illuminating. I wanna read a passage from your book. That interests us frankly because it could be about politics but i'll let you explain it. You're right it was the age of anything can happen. He reminded himself. There were no rules anymore. It was no longer possible to predict the weather for the likelihood of war or the outcome of elections anything can happen. What are you getting there. Well i really think we do live in this strange moment and in which not just in america also in britain also in india these three countries that i've spent my life thinking about in all of them. It's as if the rules rules of the game have have decayed so nobody we don't know anymore how things work why things work. Why do things happen the way they do. A ah the unexpected happens every day things that you would have thought impossible. A couple of years ago are now everyday reality you can into make a political point. You can have a president who wants to bomb hurricanes with nuclear weapons. That's something which if i had presented that idea to a publisher for a short story they would have said that's. That's really not convincing. Good think of something plausible so implausible. Things are now everyday reality and i think it's a lot of people bewildering greg delivered this world whether on rules nobody knows what the new shape of the world will be well. You say that we have those conversations didn't at a humble humble level. We're not writing literature here but as we put together the stories in the in the news rundown as they call sometimes yes. It does feel like well. That's that's absurd no wait. That's what's happening something else. Serious in the book is <hes> the plotline deals with the opioid crisis. How important is that add in your understanding of american culture today well. I think it's a testimony in many ways to the breakdown of some of these values that weekly bi i've been talking about and also the kind of loneliness of america europe people many people leading very isolated lives and seeking sucker in these kinds ends of these kinds of of drug i had myself in my own life a couple of close people who died from opioid abuse and so for me it's kind of personal including my youngest sister about twelve years ago how to at at the very young age forty five had a heart attack and it was clear afterwards opioid abuse had been really major cause of that so i've been following are digging into that story for a while. Now you know let me for a decade now that i felt ready to write about it. That's that's very striking and it's something that affects people's those lives and that is you know there's of course still a stigma about even discussing. He's someone that people kind people struggle with that on the politics. You mentioned comedy. I think literature. I think also cartoons yes can sometimes go deeper and even be a little tougher than what we go ahead. No some people have said these days that satire is dead because realities weirder than satire but actually. I think i'm grateful to t._v. Comedians sean's too late night hosts who i think sometimes that comedy let's go deeper into the matter and actually cut deeper evil truthful. It's ways so i'm hoping that comedy for me is also a vehicle towards the truth. Well you mentioned the truth. I think that's a fitting getting place for my final question. I want to read again from the from the book which we mentioned is is fiction but you write about a wholly imaginary chief executive who was obsessed by cable news who pandered to a white supremacist base and if people know anything about you. I think it would be you. Take no prisoners winners. You're not afraid of political intimate nation to be sure and you have an incisive mind so i wonder what do you think is still not fully understood or is worth reckoning with about this real life president donald trump well. I one thing that i think that what mr trump is doing here. That is similar to what's happening in britain and what's even what's happening in india. Is that it all three places leaders. Inventing a mythology of a false passed occurred of golden age. You know that if we could only get back to that everything would be good make america great again you want to ask. When exactly was that was it was it last week was it before slavery was abolished was it before the civil rights movement was before with another vote when was america great in the way that we should get back to in the midst of the golden age is always a myth boris johnson right behind britain is trying to sell the idea of a golden age of england that could be restored with only all these inconvenient farmers would go away. Mr moody in india has tried to sell the idea of an ancient golden hindu age which has been ruined by the presence presence muslims all three of doing the same thing that inventing a history in order to justify actions in the present and i think that's dangerous. It's a profound point and it's also illustrative of the fact that if your campaign promises and you never have to be called on it because you're not running on anything real to begin with <hes> given us a lot to think about salman rushdie. Thank you so much against in again. Mentioning book key shot is out now. Thank you sir. Thank thank you and that does it for tonight show. I think we had a lot. I will mention tomorrow. We have a very special guest who's making headlines and says if if they win donald trump won't even get to run for president. We'll explain more tomorrow at six p._m.

Squawk pod begins right. How good morning and welcome spot right here on. Cnbc andros organ along with your current becca. Quick is off today. Jeff bezos has reclaimed the title as the world's richest person thanks to a slide and tesla's stock price yesterday the fell more than two percent representing a slide of nearly four billion dollars in elon musk's network that's according to forbes. Zealand must past basis as the world's richest person back in january. Joji you think that eon and and jeff and some of the others how often people look at stock prices every day. I actually do think ceos who own stock the stock price at least once a day. Some of them is back in the day. Sumner redstone would look at it all day. Do you think they look at rankings of themselves versus others everyday too. I think they're aware. I guess i don't for me. If i could get top ten top ten. I wouldn't even care tied for tenth safaa tied for tenth. That'd be fine. But i'm sure they know. And knowing the way these guys operate where brewster's millions you're never spending this you know what i mean so it's not the money at this point so i'm sure that you go plays into it a at some point. How about an update. Now on vaccinations overall seventy one point seven million doses of bit now been delivered. Nearly forty million people have received a one or more doses. In about fifteen million people have actually received their second dose meantime. Dr anthony fallacy slightly delaying his estimate for when he expects most americans will have access to a vaccine is now looking at mid to late may or early june. I was hoping that that would be the end of april namely have gone through all of the priorities. And now say okay. Anyone can get it. That was predicated on j. And j. johnson product having considerably more doses than now. We know they're going to have so that time line will probably be prolonged into mid to late may and early june points to johnson and johnson. Cutting its initial supply us in. It's a attributed. The delay to that to some extent twenty one people have died and millions are facing power outages for a third straight day as stroke with cold weather puts pressure on the region's energy infrastructure. The breakdown in the nation's capital has sparked growing outrage demands for answers. Brian sell than has some of them. This morning joins us now. Brian will i. I hope i have them by the way right now. First off still exceptionally cold. Three million people in texas as of the latest numbers from power outage that us still without power and more snow and cold or on the way so at the very most basic human level. It's a scary situation. There are people who've actually frozen to death over the last twenty four hours just terrifying situation. We need to get the power on. Okay so what has happened. you know. there's still a lot that we don't know but there's a lot that we are learning. First thing i number one looks like the state was just unprepared for these storms severity. Some of the weather forecast last thursday predicted a storm. But not this bad and so when you prep for certain storm coldness you say well. We'll need x amount of energy because the predictions of the storm were apparently so far off. The energy demand needs or at least estimates. Were far off factor. That in to lower inventories inventories. We're not low but they were obviously less than they need it. So you had natural gas texas. A state that primarily relies on natural gas fired power plants. If you don't have enough or enough in the right place you're not gonna be able to fire those plants also no power. You can't use a well or pipelines. This electricity system many have backup generators. Maybe the generators were operating because the cold if there is no power. You can't do a lot of the things you need to do to get the resources to where they need to be. And of course other infrastructure like the wind turbines like some of the solar were frozen as well all in all. The finger is being pointed a lot of places but what it looks like. Is this terrible toxic confluence of all these different factors and of course. Now you've got these prices. That have soared on the spot market. Dad insult to injury. If there's people out there that subscribe to these you you pay what we pay. Type wholesale energy services like a gritty or some others And your power has remained on. You might have to a massive bill. Because these companies revenue go in the spot market to buy energy. Which is i showed you guys. Yesterday there was at least one trade done at eighty seven hundred and fifty per megawatt hour. Eighty seven fifty. The normal price would be about seventy bucks. So there's so many parts of the story in a long way to go bryan. Let's talk about the the human piece of this which then of course relates the economic piece of this. If you were to look at the next forty eight hours what what do you think looks like i mean. How quickly do you think this. Some of this can get resolved in any way at all. It's not an easy question so the storm is coming. There's another storm coming. andrew. Bill cairns of nbc. We had an exchange. He said that's a bad weather remains. You're not going to get a natural thaw if you will just from the weather about a million. Fewer people have power or more people have power. Now that are deciding yesterday if you're trying to find any kind of upside four million out of power twenty four hours ago about three million so you're seeing some more grid activity. Lot of attention has been focused of course on this urquhot right. not epcot. Urquhot electra electric reliability council of texas. Not a lot of reliability in the are and where their role is and moving power around a lot of discussion andrew. And you see screen shots you know wealthy neighborhoods power poor neighborhoods. Don't and the other factor. Is this which i didn't even think about. Andrew is these homes in a lot of these places that are normally hot are actually not built with winter in mind so the stuff we take for granted you know insulation owens corning on pink stuff. A lot of them don't have that or don't have very much. They're built to actually try to stay cool when it's really hot The state's power demand was higher than the peak of summer. When everybody's cranking there air conditioning just sounds like unpreparedness factored in with a massive storm and a toxic brew and brian. I mean it's a it's flukey. I admit that that that you know none of us are supposed to have that cold weather anymore. Much less texas okay. If things are going the way they're definitely headed. But i mean this could happen again couldn't it. How often is this. The new normal given the way things are structured so every time texas gets a freak storm. That something like this happen. I mean what needs to be done so it doesn't happen next time. Well it has happened before. In fact we showed we showed up sort of an angry regulators note and put up on the screen yesterday and they said well. This is actually from nineteen. Ninety doesn't happen a lot joe. There were a few record colds made but actually there was a foot and a half of snow in houston on valentine's day eighteen ninety-five obviously very different world. Point is it's been this cold before. I think the where the calls are gonna come from and this is really complicated. I'll make it quick. There are a number of different energy. Grids are interconnected around the country the eastern inter connect you got see so in california the s p p and they share with each other like the interstate highway system. You can drive on. I ninety five from new jersey. All the way down to miami right texas. Has its own grid system urquhot. It's like it's a lone it's by itself it's kinda connected to the others but not really they don't have the ability to buy a lot of power from other states so i think the criticism is gonna come from. Why don't you open it up. You know join in with the band texas because that way. If you've got issues we can and we got more power in tennessee than we need. We'll ship you some of our electricity. They don't really have the ability to do that and somebody asked me yesterday. Joe they said. Why does texas do that. I said i mean this would love texas. Gonna texas but brian i only. That's what i was going to run off if all right if every car is going to run off the grid eventually and we're all going to be you know solar and wind and they're so i'm just wondering what the world's gonna look like because we're going to need a grid if we're not. We're not powering it with any type of of hydrocarbons and you know. I just wonder what. That's a bigger question here. Brian where we're hurtling in terms of of whatever you wanna call it but we'll see we'll see whether the new world Is ready for powering. This grid still going to need a lot of one word. Joe rosebud woke rosebud rosebud. Thanks bitcoin this morning up. Twenty seven hundred dollars fifty one thousand three hundred and twelve and we have pointed out many times andrew that the high and the low of many different years. The low can be a fraction literally of the high. Although i don't know whether you agree this might feel different because of the adoption that we're seeing by some institution might weren't before that weren't there. I know you're i know you're a bitcoin expert and i have to admit got on this piece of it. I'm just enough to be no but do you know anything about. There's a number of people that are very cautious now relating the run up the price of bitcoin to the price and price action on on tether. Are you familiar with tether. Which is another coin. That's that's being run off of Typically run off of other exchanges that are quote unquote offshore and people are correlating things in raising lots of questions. There's a big investigation. Going on in new york state into into tether. And i i have to say i don't understand but there's a lot of people speculating in the in the in the reddit communities and whatnot about it. I just enough to be dangerous. I know how you can do a stock flow analysis of of the supply. Bitcoin and you can then try to value it that way. I understand the basic premise of blockchain and distributed ledgers. But beyond that no. But i just what i described. I think is more than most people that that are writing in as experts. Actually no they're still trying to figure out how if you can divide a bitcoin into a million pieces that wise. they're a fixed supply. They don't have that down yet. So i'm not trying to. Here's the thing. Andrew member nova 'grats okay. We want to twenty thousand couple years ago and then went all the way back down crash down to the low four thousand. Tom lee was still remember. He was talking about going back to twenty. Then we got up to about ten twelve fourteen and no regrets is on and said you know i wish i would sold some at fourteen because again it was back down to eight or ten so those moves. That's the question i have. Is that a thing of the past. Now that we've got musk now. That we've got micro strategy now that we've got mellon bank now that we've got all these other things that seem to be almost a stamp of good housekeeping to some extent because it's becoming more mainstream. Are those days gone of back down to a fraction of where we are. There's a i don't either. I don't think this this world on the tether piece suggest do is is almost a short thesis on on bitcoin in the short term. But i don't understand it well enough but there's a lot of folks out. There seemed to be having this conversation. So we'll see. I had someone yesterday told me. I didn't understand decimal points. And i sent back. Do you need a decimal point. Get zero followers is at zero point. Zero is zero point zero zero zero or is it just zero anyway. That's how gets ridiculous as twitter sphere. Why answer someone zero followers. That's a question coming up on squawk pod the detroit developer recognizing potential in communities and investors of color roderick hardiman. We're not an anomaly. We're not a aberration. Were successful creative. Bockel business individuals know how to get stuff done. And we'll be right back at change healthcare.

It's how we're making the health care experience better for everyone learn more at change. Healthcare dot com slash. Cnbc change healthcare. Insight innovation transformation. This is pod. Here's andrew ross. Sorkin walkabout squawk rebuilding detroit. It's one of the real estate stories of the decade while we tend to focus on some of the big names involved. Quickens dan. Gilbert related stephen ross. Another group of developers is battling bigotry to make their mark one building at a time and diana look. Has that story. This morning roderick hardiman spent two decades on wall street but he came home to the streets of detroit which he calls his best investment yet. Making sure that the activity and economic growth that happens here is inclusive and impactful for all detroit residents. He is one of several. Small black developers going neighborhood to neighborhood property to property building back the beleaguered city and raising up its residents. This will be a mixed use development with retail space and affordable. Housing is actually one of the first new construction projects on grand river which is one of our main corridors and over thirty years his partner is local gallery owner and developer. Nom de is supporting the have Wants to small developers doing things in the community because most of the time the community the they have lived in these communities. They know these communities but for these partners and others like them. Finding the capital is not easy. Exa capital is talk. Problem that Emerging developers africans women minorities across the board people. Come across the border facing struggle with and it does make the products much more challenging. We have to be ten times more creative ways to fill capital gaps that means leaning on partners in the philanthropic and social space like capital impact. Invest detroit the city of detroit and local initiatives support corp not the big banks are the the movement of black developers. Here is very very unique. We recognized the potential of boy into areas. That people don't quite see the vision yet and that's one of the biggest strengths we have. We're not an anomaly. We're not an aberration. We're successful creative. Thoughtful business individuals who know how to get stuff done. You just have to be patient and you have to be foolish enough never to quit And then stay hopeful that you can push through broderick hardiman says. He hopes that by showing both creativity and that the projects make economic sense he will attract more investors and more capital to minority developers. Not just in detroit but all over the country andrew danner we think of detroit is one of the last places. People wanna live because of what happened to the economy there. Why so much new development right now. Well there's a new economy in detroit look. The auto industry isn't what it was but they do have a thriving manufacturing industry. Of course you have quicken loans there which keeps getting bigger you also have a huge university base that they can draw from students who might want to stay in detroit and believe it. Or not with all the millennials who are going there now because it's a cheaper cost of living it's now called the new hipsters city. I'm surpri- just one question on the capital raise issue. I'm surprised no major bank participated in that. Well there are banks obviously participating in the rebirth of detroit. Hardiman said it's very hard for small. Developers liked him to get that capital from banks. And you see the banks trying to help residential buyers of real estate that is homeowners. Who wanna get in. You've seen a lot of that. In the last couple of months from the big banks offering mortgages but when it comes to commercial developments in downtown detroit he says it's very difficult to get the banks to look at the smaller developers and the minority developers especially like him. It's an important story guy. Thank you bring it to us. Is warning next on. Squawk pod has robin hood game find or democratized. The stock market a dynamic debate between squawks.

You're listening to squawk pod. Today with joe kernan and andrew. Ross sorkin. here's the house. Financial services committee set to question several actors in the game stop Saga following the outcry against robin hood and other brokers decision to restrict trading on several stocks last month executives from robin hood. Senator al melvin capital and read. It will testify at the hearing scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. Join us now. John hope bryant founder and ceo of operation hope and kevin o'leary chairman at o'shares in a shark tank co host also cnbc contributor. Ghb john hope looking at your notes you appreciate the democratization and we've worked together on this and trying to open up the entire capitalistic system to everyone. Because that's that's the be a key way to move forward in an equalizing opportunity reading your notes. You you you want everyone to participate. But i still get the feeling that you think it's rigged so i gotta make sure it's not rigged and i agree with that but why. Why want everyone participate in something that from the from the outset. You kind of think is is a unfair system in the first place. Well first of all good to see joe and Good to see your cool hairstyle. Last show last yasser for detroit named hartman. Who said he want to be foolish enough not to quit. That's what i want for. Every entrepreneur in this country happens to be black by the way he had problem. Exits capital when mccall me So we can help him at operational do just that. You know what i want is a fair system and what i level playing field at most of them want affirmative action on capitol on capitalism. So that folks get a level playing field opry. Why did you go to heart rate university but not much better than some great state universities because the class of twenty twenty one is going to look it up for the next forty years. Why you go to heart principle. It's a club and they trade information amongst themselves so he but free flow your free enterprise system have a free flow of information and that happened with read it and that happened and that happens on wall street in that game needs to stop so that everybody has a shot at success or failure on their own mirror. There is a perception kevin. And all you gotta do is look at any of the polls conducted. I think a majority of people think it's it's The average investor can't go up against the citadel's and and the The computer traders guys that have you know whether it's at a what's the club i always hear about. What's that club in new york city. Where the everyone says. That's where all ideas are discussed between these. There is a perception core club. I guess there is a cabin. I want to make an observation. I'm going to bet that as we go through this drilling this political theater. We're about to see the majority of the people criticizing system or criticizing robin hood or the wall. Street bets crowd read. It have never used it. I forced myself to download robin hood. Put ten thousand dollars into it. I joined read it. And i ride with her now. I did that on one phone. And then the other phone. I bought a robo advisor one that i invested in cobaine stocks. I am trying to date trade with everybody else. And i'm watching my robo advisor. Beat me right now. The point is it's fantastic democratization. There's no question about it. But i'm going to make an observation that i did not assume was was over there when i started this whole little journey. I called up vlad last week and his executives. I didn't know if he'd return my call. He did and i spoke to him for about forty five minutes. I have a different impression about that guy. now he's an engineer. He's very pragmatic. He's building a platform that he's trying to keep safe for people. I did not know until. I downloaded the app. You cannot short a stock on robin hood. So it's very hard to blow yourself up. You might be able to do with options. It's quite a good platform. But here's the issue with it. It's done twenty million accounts that no one else has ever been able to do and everybody that i've learned about the red crab now that i'm part of it. They're not as dumb as everybody thinks. Those people have bloomberg's they're searching out situations. That are over short thin floats. They're organizing the night before and they're going after the stocks and in most cases they're driving them up so you can realize. Now that there's a whole new ballgame in town. And i'm writing with them. I've just. I made five percent yesterday on some crazy. Pharmaceutical company had never heard of now. Am i gonna beat my robo. I don't know but there's a whole new sheriff in town and they're not stupid and this is sort of a problem like us the foreign language with half of what he would just talk about what you're talking about but the average person has no clue what kevin just sick and you and you had gaming on both sides. Having we're in war you had the hedge funds do have information now. Call them worry. Like a a monocle. Private game car game and you got the book and read it. Who had their hats on back with technology center who are also gaming on probation which is sales toward the riding up. A certain stock wall street should be about capital formation. It should be about the delivery of capital to build important companies have stocks that have. I don't know earnings attack soon. It's turning into the game of occasion is turning into a dangerous place and my clients. Kevin are getting caught in the middle. I mean literally. People think that the money because they think that based on internet height this stock can't loose. I literally heard that it was one thousand. They bet their rent money. Wouldn't it got in at three hundred roads of four fifty and wrote an all the way back there. It's now fifty six wherever sixty bucks. But they lost all their savings plus alone. They took out. It's so the folks the middle. Getting hurt here unsophisticated. And i think that's the issue. I don't john. I don't think that's a good argument. For capitol hill. I'll tell you why. Every investors a speculator whether you hold stock for a millisecond whether you own it for ten years and the market has to accommodate that. When i'm looking at now and i've becoming to believe why. I'm supporting robin hood. And the red crowd is even if they even if the element of using it is very easy which it is. They've done a great job with the interface. There's an education process going on here in investing you win and you lose you make money lose money that is for every investor and if we can get an eighteen year old learning that early on because we certainly haven't covered it for them in high school or college. We failed them as a society. Not if they have to learn it on read it and they have to learn it. You know trading on robinson. I'm okay with it. I've come to that conclusion. I'm going to be very supportive of this. I'm going to tell people to do both. Download robin hood. Put some cash into that and compete with yourself in a robo. You can pick any of the robo advisers and i think you learn from that. You learned that indexing long-term can help you. Sustain wealth and day trading is very very hard. It's not testing. It's really hard to make money. Doing quick turns. And i think that education is powerful and important. Even if you game a fi. I think it's fantastic. I'm getting out there and saying to every student. I teach do both compete with yourself and see if you can beat it. But the point is they're doing something and never did before it. I applaud vlad and his team. They are going to take a ton of criticism. This coming few sessions. And i'm want to be one of the supporters of him saying look. If you're going to be a politician and you're going to criticize his platform download it. Try it use it. You can't criticize if you don't try it. That's the only rule i couldn't. We should have. Actually we actually agree for different reasons. You you said you said my loving work education but you got your education. And i got mine by the way both of us joe to probably from sitting at our dad and our mother's knee because they were investors we got our education the market we got our education for. Because you know we were rather investors in my neighborhood you hang around nine. Broke people going to be the tip and so no one's talking about margins and indexing and all that stuff and you getting on these platforms and these are not investors Kevin the middle of this market. These dreamers zero speculators. These are they going to las. Vegas hit the lottery. We need to turn them into investors. I'm actually agreeing with you. On this point i actually liked the the The i don't wanna mention six platform names but there are a number of platforms. I actually think are quite innovative. Actually think the robin hood platform on mention it. It's quite bigger. i like it. I would have loved him to put angel education and investor education in their first trade. That's my only criticism of their first time. They opened their first train. You wouldn't slow the process down in beta lou financial education. the bed. a little bit of a pumping. I opened an account just like you. I found it john. John the risk. You're taking when you would you poke the fire with this issue or out of not being fair you stimulate all kinds of politicians to try and change rules around the market. That's actually working. We don't need to change anything. The market is working just the way it was designed to do and it's doing very good job of it though the words i hate and we're going to hear them all week is hi. I'm from the government. And i'm here to help you. I'm here to protect you against yourself. I'm here to make sure you only make money when you invest. You'll never have a loss because i'm from massachusetts. I'm from tennessee. And i'm going to make sure no bad things happen to you as an investor. How absurd is that. Of course that's not going to work. They'll get their time yelling. These poor providers at the end of the day. Nothing's going to change. That is what i think because we need to short stocks and we need to have liquidity and we need a market that provides for everybody a millisecond holder at a tenure holder. We need all that any time. The stress on the system. There's always a politician telling you we have to fix it. I hate that so kevin. No one said anything about feerick. Anything or i'd say about that. You want to pay me as being some kind of a crazy liberal. I'm actually a capitalist with a lot of that to you. john. I love it. That's my job honored by chip initials. I met your mother gave you good good marriage. I wanted investors bill of rights where the wall street polices itself for the government has to come and do it for no regulator. Kevin was created out of good time created because the market did not least itself. The federal reserve. The occ sec. I go down the list in the market. Not police itself. We have got the on the right hand and do the right thing. If markets and wall street's best interest to to create the next generation of john o'brien of jokers and kevin o'leary he's as strong as me to say to create a new generation of educating them in the market with the market by market. Good data and we only need one of each of us. So i think that that we can all agree on anna nando. Great discussion you guys. That you're we love having you on together. I'm sure there's gonna be something to talk about next week to get both sides of the from gentlemen thank you both john hope bryant and mr wonderful kevin that squawk pod for today on our rundown tomorrow bill gates the microsoft founder famously predicted a once in a century pandemic on a veteran out.

Trump under pressure over trade wars, raiding FEMA funds

"This episode is brought to you by cox with contour t._v. From cock you can find all your favorites all in one place and does it have the youtube you bet and what about that netflix thing netflix to and other superhero movies contour has all the latest titles on demand. Oh my grandkids love that big the green guy. I prefer the one with the hammer myself okay. I think we're done here now. Get all your favorite apps shows and movies right on contour tortilla from cox. We're following a lot of stories. The walls are closing in trump losing support. His trade war blows up and his administration millions of dollars from fema plus. More fallout is trump threatens to deport seriously. Ill children. I'll talk to one family whose five-year-old is receiving life saving saving care in the us but has been told to get out and the slow burn in the impeachment caucus why dozens more democrats have come out in favor of impeaching trump since the muller hearing we'll get to all of it but we begin with an update on hurricane dory and as the monster storm barrels toward florida and b._c. Meteorologist bill cairns's with this bill. So what should people be preparing for the million dollar questions. You prepared in case. You're told to evacuate. I mean that's the bottom line first thing area concerns the northern with the bahamas a number and a talk about south central florida on the east coast and then possibly right up through the florida coast into the carolinas and yesterday the trend was oh this this looks really strong and it looks further to the south today in the last twenty four hours trend's been still looks really strong but maybe just maybe we can stall stall this thing out enough and curve it out to sea to avoid a devastating blow on the east coast of florida and even the carolina so let me explain the latest in the hurricane center one hundred fifteen mph winds and look at how well defined the eye is now very symmetrical. It just looks like a classic major hurricane right now wouldn't surprise me at all if it gets up to a category for overnight tonight into tomorrow morning and i still think may even have a shot at some point in the next forty eight hours coming close to a category five so that it gets your attention enough right there. We know we're going to have this huge diesel storm that could potentially do extreme damage just like a michael last year some of the big huge we've done in the past. The forecast happen to hurricane center. We're through the bahamas sunday into monday so we know that that part in the forecast all of our models are saying that's going to happen. That looks like it's pretty much set in stone. There are rushing to either get out of the way or rush to completion in areas of the northern bahamas and then we have this northwards turn and this is the big debate between all the meteorologist meteorologist and weather forecast wiggles and changes a little bit. When is that going to occur. It's all being guided by an area of high pressure up here near bermuda. If it's a little stronger it sends sends it straight into areas of south florida and central florida. If it's weaker the storm stalls and then it can curve and turn and that's kind of been the trend as we've gone throughout the day today a a little bit of a weaker high and so that allows the storm to stall and then kind of make a drifting trend now if it drifts as a category four right along the east coast of central florida. That's horrendous. That's it's like worst case scenario for them but if we can kick it just a little bit more offshore say like what this computer model does then it would just be a glancing blow but you notice the majority see them are either on the shore or right along the coast all the way from about vero beach palm back down the indian river kicking through the space coast up here towards flagler county daytona the beach areas and then towards jacksonville and now we've added into the cone savannah and even charleston too so we haven't eliminated the possibility even a direct hit up there and here's our computer models does. This is our american model. We get these updated about the big updates every twelve hours. It has the storm as we go throughout two a._m. Tuesday that's how far back we've pushed this now two a._m. A tuesday just off the coast of florida but the european model even further still over the northern bahamas that is we fast forward it. European model off coast american can model comes right along the coast and then off toco so we've got a lot to watch on this one chris and i hate to say it's a flip of a coin right now but if you watch that cone of uncertainty uncertainty you know we call it this area in here. Fifty percent of that is now offshore. The other fifty percent is either over florida or over here in western portions into florida so right now. It's just too early for us to say if we're even going to get a category for a landfall but it's still a possibility and as long as is the case you have to prepare yeah no kidding bill cairns. Thank you for that all of the preparations for the storm coming just after the trump administration announced a plan to take away funding from fema shifting one hundred and fifty five million dollars from fema disaster relief funding to pay for the president's border priorities and when it looked like dorian could hit the already battered puerto rico the president sent multiple tweets attacking the island and its leaders calling them corrupt and incompetent all this as trump faces growing pressure on everything from his trade policy to immigration plans with growing signs of frustration from a key part of trump's base farmers getting hammered by trump's trade war and new ethanol rules plus public outcry after the administration eliminated a policy to defer deportations for families with a member undergoing undergoing lifesaving medical treatment now children with cancer and cystic fibrosis could get kicked out of the country within weeks and there's new turmoil in the west wing with president trump's personal assistant abruptly resigning today after the president found out about comments she had made to reporters in an off the record briefing with we on all of this victoria differentiate sco professor at the university of texas and clarence page columnist for the chicago tribune. It's good to see both of you want to get to victoria tori. There was a lot of coverage of the president staying home to monitor the storm this weekend but dorian coming right after he cut money from fema budget. He attacked puerto rico again again in fact he seemed to complain about another big storm heading to the island. So how does he prove. He's actually committed to these areas hit by storms. I don't think he's he's necessarily caring whether it shows up that he's committed or not. We know that <hes> he had a very tumultuous relationship with the island of puerto wta rico with their leadership and he and his actions in taking that funding away from fema because let's not forget that it's only been two years since hurricane cain. Maria and the island is still recovering so i don't think he really cares that much. I think where it's really gonna hurt though chris is in florida because when we first thought that the bulk of the storm is going to go to puerto rico that's a different story that when it hits florida and you have off that full electorate of purple swing state there. That's going to be affected so i'm that'd be really curious to see if he changes his tune when we see the impact of the storm closer to the u._s. Mainland clearance the front page of puerto rico's leading newspaper today said mr president your numbers are fake because he said puerto rico got ninety two billion dollars in hurricane recovery. He keeps repeating that when congress percents executive branch it's been said over and over again only approved forty nine billion and just about half of that has actually gotten to puerto rico already so what does it mean that he just just keep saying this over and over and over again no matter how many times he's corrected the president has had had a math problem with puerto rico from the time of the first hurricane we saw that he <hes> remember way underestimated or understated the number of casualties. They're saying somewhere in the neighborhood of of thirty thirty or forty something like that and turns out. It's a well over a thousand these. The kind of this kind of attention is given to puerto rico in the past a ah a very strange kind of of a passive neglect if you will i walk the same time florida as very important state for him. Politically i as well well as important state for him financially because he's got two very important properties. They're mar-a-lago and the other hotel he wants to have the g seven zipper conference and that's the difference between those two as far as the presence that tension goes as i suspect we're going to see we are paying a lot more attention especially as the storm gets closer to orlando and highway four which is a pivotal area of independent swing swing voters in florida which could carry that very important states electoral votes one way or the other yeah we know can the trip to poland but he's about to get on a a flight to go to or i guess i guess helicopter to get to camp david but in the meantime i talked to the former fema director craig fugate earlier today today about the cuts taking money away from fema for border projects especially the timing going right into the hurricane unsown and fugate had some really fascinating insight about who should actually worry about the money going away. Here's what he said to me will not affect a response spots to this hurricane. A bigger problem will be older disasters that if fema starts running low on money responding to this hurricane they may you have to stop work on older disastrous until congress is able to refund that account until congress can refund that account look might say victoria of course congress would replenish under schema funds well. I mean i think a lot of people thought they'd take care of nine eleven victims to but we saw how protracted that was right. I mean regrettably. We've become become so hyper. Partisan in this era in congress has become so deadlock the pretty much everything is a tug of war and anything that would before would not be considered contentious is considered contentious now so the the issue of fema funding is one of these issues where you think it's gonna pass. It's absolutely gonna pass and it doesn't increase. I wanna take a further step back in terms of the shuffling around of the money from fema out of department of homeland security. Let's also think about what happens. When we're taking money away from the larger national security perspective so we're funneling all of our money to the border all of our money you to detention centers but not only are we neglecting fema but we're also neglecting maybe cybersecurity we're neglecting providing for protection from other things that are maybe not physical in nature but cyber nature so i mean this is really worrisome. How we see the reshuffling of money toward the one project that is really about donald trump central apiece for his electoral strategy will and all this is playing out. Clearances congress wraps up summer break. They're coming back to dc soon and senate. Republicans are reportedly getting the anxious about trump's handling the economy politico reporting one g._o._p. Officials say officials saying everyone acknowledges that the economy is good but there's still on easy about their own circumstances. I am nervous that people will lose their patients and want to start seeing results in just as an aside another republican member of the house announced today that he will not be running for re election. Do you think that there is a point at which republicans will abandon the president on this. We keep keep asking that. Don't we ever since the president was elected and we don't see republicans defecting in any significant way <hes> quite the opposite <hes> they have no place to go but to stand together unless they do want to leave congress altogether which as you mentioned <hes> a startlingly large number have done but right now the republicans are concerned about the perceptions of depression bang on the way or recession rather <hes> and economics is really ninety percent psychological impressions anyway. If you feel prosperous thing you are politically if you don't feel prosperous <hes> then that's that's a problem for the status quo as far as the office holders currently in office and so that's going to be a big question now as we see president trump castle soley was looking for somebody to blame for be pessimism. Some people feel and of course the press is handy to blame so as the federal reserve you name it. He goes those after anybody can and seems to be doing more of that lately and we also mentioned frustrations among farmers with the president's trade policies well today the new your time's paul krugman called it. The fraud of america's farmers writing firmer support for trump should be seen as a form of thin ity fraud in which people fall for a con man whom they imagined to be someone like them and as is often the case such frauds the conman and his associates actually have contempt for their marks joining us by skype from his north dakota farmers by kyla and a wheat farmer who says he's lost four hundred thousand dollars since trump took office baffle piece of property. You have their bob. What's been happening with your business <hes> well. We lost a pretty much all of our markets. Since trump took overeat <unk> dropped out of the key got rid of nafta <hes> i raise a lot of weight on my arm in the pacific agreem- countries they like <unk> high-protein week and that's what we raise here so being the market is low ever since last year at harvest harvest. This time i sold wait for five seventy market is five eighty two long. There used to be up to a dollar bonus on protein from implant protein to seventeen dollars fred right now. There's five sense so we learned a lot of hype poking. We'd were just taken. A two dollar hit hit from last year to dollar hit in burbach seventy to seventy five dollars an acre losing by harvesting a little bit above average crop right now. How do you keep going well. Older guys like us. We've built up equity all our allies. Most farmers are our our land rich in cash for so we'll take out the law slow up against our land and go backwards on the land that we've paid for aw young farmers out there that don't have equity and i worry about them because they're gonna. They're not gonna be able to withstand this saw. I one of my neighbors young neighbors told me today. He said his banker said we'd is important. There's gonna be a bloodbath this fall so it's it's not looking good for farmers at all aw i know we're getting some payments coming in here where i'm at. We're going to get like fifteen dollars an acre so that's still a sixty dollar loss. You did the vote for president. Trump you told us but poll show he does still have some support from the farming community but are you sensing in the people around where you live a change of shift. I i think there was a lot of people who voted for that one. I stayed loyal but it's gonna get to the point where financially actually if it's between supporting the president are losing your family farm. This is something we had our our family for four generations than i. I know there's families five or six generations on the same farm if they're gonna lose that i think you're going to lose their <hes> their loyalty really fast well bob cowan. We wish you well is one of the great american resources the family farm and thank you so much for taking the time to talk to us today clarence page. What do you say to that. He's saying there could be a bloodbath indeed. You know because this current crisis. I learned that illinois annoy leads the country on soy production. I didn't realize that but manufacturing state agricultural state and we're seeing the same kind of reaction in downstate illinois as a result of this current crisis. It's nobody really knows where this current trade. War is going to go trade. Wars are dangerous matter to get into and <hes> president trump is doing all he can to make it look good but people are feeling the pain out there and that doesn't help anybody. No it does not clarence page. Thank you victoria franchesca soto. Please stay with me after a quick thirty second break something the beat team put together a special look at the slow build of democrats coming out four impeachment since muller's testimony also trump's new policy that could deport deport migrants was severe illnesses. I'll talk to the family of five year old boy samuel kosta. This isn't political for him. It's a matter of life the death later one on one with billionaire and presidential candidate. Tom style. I'm chris johnson and for our melber. You're watching the beep on m._s._n._b._c. back back hi. It's katie tour wanna. Keep up with m._s._n._b._c. while you're on the go subscribe to the m._s._n._b._c. n._b._c. daily newsletter. You'll get the best of what you've missed. During this unprecedented era of news text m._s._n._b._c. to six eight six six to subscribe. It's turning into one of the biggest political surprises of of the summer the growing movement to impeach president trump forty one more democrats coming out in favor of impeachment since muller testified before congress in july bringing the total number of house members supporting impeachment inquiry to one hundred thirty five just this week after reports trump offered to pardon aids if they had to break the law and order to speed up progress on a border wall a top democrat on the house judiciary committee said that issue would be added to ongoing proceedings about whether the to impeach trump meanwhile the slow burn of the growing impeachment caucus continues one additional democrat lori trade hand of massachusetts got behind the move toward impeachment after testimony ninety. Six democrats are calling for an impeachment inquiry ninety eight house members back at impeachment inquiry a surge of congressional missile democrats. The impeachment caucus is swelling to one hundred and eight members hundred sixteen democrats. If you're counting takes you up to one hundred seventeen house democrats have one more democrat that comes out in favour. It's half of the caucus. I feel we can no longer way feel compelled to call for an impeachment inquiry against president trump. I do not come to this decision lightly. The american people deserve the truth. A majority of house democrats are now on record publicly supporting impeachment inquiry the number of democrats supporting impeachment. I agree now. What one hundred twenty four one hundred twenty six n._b._c.'s count now up to one hundred and thirty three democrats that brings the number of house lawmakers backing king impeachment to one hundred and thirty five. I'm joined now by tennessee. Congressman steve cohen a member of the judiciary committee. It's good to see you congressman. You have supported impeachment since late eight twenty seventeen. Why do you think that now almost two years later so many of your colleagues are changing their minds. The the democratic base is very much in favor of impeachment. The muller testimony we really was eye opening to some in that it's showed showed clearly that five of the obstruction charges had all the constituent elements had been met and that there were ten and so the arguably you hit ten obstructions but five all the elements were met and that there were over one hundred contacts with russia and the trump campaign during the election and while there might not have been a conspiracy there was cooperation and welcome of the russian involvement and all those things together but the democratic base has made a lot of people come out to say they're ford enquiry. I'm all for an inquiry and i'm pleased to see one hundred thirty five people there. I think i was second kind of a third and the congress to come out for impeachment not for a inquiry because i don't think while it's important that we get the facts out there and hearings and that's what we have to really influenced show the public the need to teach this man. There's no question he's committed. Innumerable impeachable offenses and he should be impeached were beyond the stage of of simply having an inquiry he has basically come out and shown us his violations of the mimas clauses obstruction of justice and his total disregard for the rule of law <hes> that he should be impeached and removed so you as a democratic the democratic basis for impeachment so i wanna play what constituents were asking your colleague early katie porter of california about impeachment at a town hall she had recently. I believe that the impeachment of donald trump is a big mistake. He must be defeated at the ballot box november twenty twenty. I came out in favor of impeaching donald trump because i believe no american especially not in a democratically elected president can be above the rule of law. You heard the reaction. I mean this is someone i'm sure you know. She beat an incumbent republican. She flipped that republicans seat in california so if there is this sort of growing sense among among the democratic base that the time has come. How do you move nancy pelosi into that category. You know katie's a great representative nancy. He's a great speaker but i don't know how to move nancy. Really i mean i'm we're friends and she's <hes> she's got a hurry to the ground and she's listening into different <hes> vibrations than obligated to when i put my ear to the ground what does that do you ask her. What are you hearing that. I don't understand sand well. She never really. I think's tells me the full story i mean. I think that she says and agree with that. We're gonna get into impeachment inquiry. We're gonna have hearings in the house judiciary committee. We're going to have one on the monuments in my subcommittee. In september <hes> there will be other hearings if we can get the witnesses is in we need to proceed in court with our subpoenas and get the evidence possibly the grand jury testimony that we're seeking and mcgann and lindau ski and all those folks folks to testify and is that material comes out. We'll go where the facts lead us and i understand that and i agree with that and that makes sense but at the same time we know what they're going to say because it's the mother report and those facts are that the president obstructed justice and there's no question but miami has claws every time he takes in dollars from foreign governments at trump hotels or trump towers and now he's so blatant that he wants foreign governments to pay him at the wral. It's this this this gone too far and you know i'm afraid they'll run out the clock the trump they're they're doing all they can to avoid court hearings or a p._o. When they lose and they're going to stall the words to who light so that's why i think we we need to impeach the guy and he while he won't be convicted. It's important to put him and have the house to proper to say this is wrong. We have a certain line the lines the constitution of the constitution has been violated congressman steve cohen. Thanks so much for coming on the program. Thanks for having me on. I just want to say john trump casinos. He wasn't running republican. He's a good guy and it's a shame. The good people like that or leaving is partly because minority and partly. I suspect because they don't want want to be around this president. Thank you so much for that. Appreciate it congressman turning next to trump's new policy that could deport migrants facing severe illnesses. I'll talk to the family family of samuel kosta. A five year old boy from brazil getting desperately needed treatment here in the u._s. Tonight public health officials expressing worry over a stunning new report about conditions in detention facilities that hold migrants agri- the c._d._c. Reporting on a large scale outbreak of mumps almost nine hundred cases across nineteen states plus dozens more staffers infected the majority of patients got the mumps while in ice custody one public health professor told buzzfeed that based on c._d._c.'s data and ice detainee had roughly the at least a four thousand fold greater risk of getting mumps than a non detainee in the united states at large. This comes after months of reports of crowded insanitary conditions for detainees and that's a new front is opening in the immigration. Fight activists are sounding an urgent alarm over a new trump policy to deport severely severely. Ill migrants not from detention centers but people who are here for critically needed medical attention and today dozens of democratic lawmakers sent onto letter to top trump immigration officials about this new policy asking them to turn over documents within two weeks so here's the question why these patients and many of them children are being targeted despite trump having claimed his real immigration concern was the quote invasion from criminals and gangs. This is an invasion when you see these caravans starting out with twenty thousand people that's an invasion which talking about an invasion asian of our country with all types of criminals and gangs people hate the word invasion but that's what it is. It's an invasion of drugs criminals and people people and in many cases and in some cases you have killers coming in and murders coming in trump warning of gangs but the new policy is affecting people all like this five year old boy. His name is samuel kosta. He's from brazil and is currently getting round. The clock specialized medical care in the u._s. For a condition affecting his internal turner oregon's. His family says he cannot get this treatment in brazil but earlier this month. The family received this letter telling them to leave the u._s. Within thirty three days. I want to bring madeline cronin the attorney for the family you see here. Samuel is sitting on his mother's lap. Cer- lane and daniel sales is samuel's manuel's cousin. She is speaking for the family the most important and first question danielle how a samuel doing today severance duino right so they thank thank you for asking you are a u._s. Citizen how important is it for samuel to be able to stay here in the u._s. For similar similar to stay here it keeps pretty much his life <hes> him leaving the country. You wouldn't have the specialized treatment that he has right now. He's currently having in the more monitor rice <hes> health treatment that he's he's having here right now so literally. This is for him what he needs to stay. Alive is is echoing. What happened here. What did the letter say about why samuel would have to go well. There actually was no reason or or analysis given in the letter we submitted an application a detailed application about why what his condition is and the seriousness of it and we just got this boilerplate letter that said you have thirty days to leave the country or be put in deportation so there was no analysis. It was obviously a boilerplate letter. Wow wow so you say. His life is at risk here and you get back basically a boilerplate correct so no public announcement since then either. I know you've been working with the a._c._l._u. and other groups to try to bring attention to this so this obviously isn't just impacting samuel israel. How how broad a problem could this be well. There are no fixed numbers on how many cases there are across the united states <hes> but i've heard it's up to one thousand cases so up to a thousand across the country i have met with a couple of other new people that i saw this week better facing the same problem great great humanitarian problem so they also letters saying you have a certain amount of days and then you have to leave the country is is pointing yes and they presented these letters in thinking they were alone in isolation for some reason they alone with these letters not knowing that with a blanket situation of the country country danielle. How long could samuel go on without treatment. Is it something that he absolutely needs. Every single day. Semi receives <hes> his nutrition russian his medicine his everything that he needs through a central line to his heart that takes twelve hours daily by two machines using machines so that's what he needs every single day. What has it been like for you what has been like for his mom and for his family. Ever since this letter came in. Can you even put into words. The emotional toll this is taking on you. I wish we could have words to describe what we're filling it but i think the currently there's no words for me to describe exactly what everything has been going not only with his mother <hes> but with everybody around us the family the friends this and everybody who is being supporting us this past few months in this past two years that this has been going through madeleine. I just want to to clarify if something can't be done if your efforts through the a._c._l._u. and others are unsuccessful. What what are your options is. It possible congress could get involved i would we heard that they they have written a letter. I mean what are your thoughts. The clock is ticking well. We know that he can't leave so the thirty three days is just <hes> impossible. <hes> we also know that <hes> we are working in exploring all legal options <hes> we we haven't heard anything from acting director cinelli. This policy has been in place since the mid seventies. It's a complete an abrupt reversal of this longtime policy so other than that <hes>. This is a a last effort by families to expose oppose themselves and to request help because of dire situation and now it's completely been <hes> done away with and other than <hes> legal action. It's asking the immigration service by putting a real face to this problem to go back to the longstanding policy. You've deferred action in humanitarian cases well madeline cronin. Thank you so much and i know that this is <hes> would not be high on the priority celeste for a sick little boy in his family to come on television and have to talk about this but it's so important and we thank you and of course we're sending a big hug two samuel who is a beautiful beautiful boy and we we hope you'll keep in touch with us and let us know how things going thank you very much. Thank you you let me bring back in victoria difrancesco soto. I don't even know what to say here or what question to ask you. What's your reaction to what you just heard <hes> cruelty and agony that's that's my initial reaction chris <hes> but i you know i think through. Why is this happening happening. I'm asking myself. How could we have gotten to this point and then you know kind of. I get my academic hat back on i go way we saw this coming. <hes> we have seen a cut got to refugee and asylum programs in the united states like nothing we've ever seen before so when president obama left office we were providing one hundred and ten thousand visas to refugees and asylum for humanitarian reasons for lifesaving reasons the trump administration in the last fiscal year cut it to thirty thousand people so this is just the next step in extremity of denying the humanity of folks who are immigrants because really this is a matter of life life and death chris. You know these folks cannot leave by their own accord. What is this going to happen. My what i'm wondering here is what are the optics fix this going to be. Is this going to be zero. Tolerance situation like what we saw the border last summer chris where the american public rises up and says no more. We're we're not going to stand for this. My hope is doesn't get to this but this is such an extreme that i do think we'd see that bad. I mean i think the timeline being so short and and you just have to go back to the the argument that the president has made over and over and over again that his immigration policies are national security issue look at samuel samuel. What national security threat does he pose. I don't know if you saw the cover of the front page of the new york times. I think it was yesterday. Another immigrant maria isabel bu ceo who has a rare genetic disease told the new york times. I've been feeling super scared and overwhelmed. The treatment that i receive keeps me alive breath is she. She security threat. These are the polar opposites of what the quote unquote bad hombre czar. These are our children. These are youth. These are innocent. People and let's also talk about chris. The fact that the deferred action is also needed for their caretakers because you can't leave the five year old by himself in a hospital room. You need a mother. You need a father there so this from every angle is i think one of the most cruel policies abc's i have ever seen you know i i'm speechless when i when i saw this this policy intent by the trump administration which by the way came without a review period because usually when we have rules put out from the executive office. There is a period where there's common. There was none of that the tour de francesco soto. Let's hope people people are watching and paying attention tonight. Thank you so much for being on. Thanks chris coming up next. I'll talk to billionaire and presidential candidate. Tom style. We're back with new comments from donald trump who is on his way to camp david tonight about the abrupt resignation of his personal assistant after she made comments about the first family an off the record meeting with reporters. She said she was drinking a little bit and she was with reporters and everything she said was off. The record mentioned a couple of things about my children children. It was an off the record and of course the breast of the press breaks off the records all the time because they are very dishonorable. Many of them not all of you but many the he says he spoke with her tonight and he wishes her well either. You're in or you're out. That's the harsh reality for half the democratic twenty twenty field because because look what's anybody talking about not the folks who will be watching from home but about the first face off between the top three about whether any of the candidates polling it two percent percent could have a breakthrough and of course they're talking about. The first ever battle between joe biden elizabeth warren as her rise in the polls has some other contenders nervous. My next guest miss the debate by just one poll and as a result. Maybe missed a lot of attention twenty twenty presidential candidate. Tom steiner is here good to see you again. Thanks thanks for joining us chris. Thank you for having me so. Let's take a realistic look at y- you spend an awful lot of money came close but no cigar what needs to happen happened now for you to believe and frankly for people to believe that this campaign is viable well. The rule is that we needed to to be at two percent in four polls. In the early primary states the public polls that the d._n._c. doesn't accept have me somewhere between six and seven in percent on average in those four states but what the rules or the d._n._c. would still have some polls and and you're going to you just continue to spend money until what we can see chris. Is that my message that we have a broken government that corporations perations have bought the government that we need to reestablish the democracy in order to get the kinds of policies in healthcare and education a living wage clean air and clean water in order to get those policies to happen is actually working people believe that for the last ten years i've taken these corporations on and beat them. So of course i'm going to keep going. There's no question is you just haven't run polls. What do you base that on the the polls that are on the ground right now and have been on the ground for the last six weeks. The actual polls in the early primary states where i've been spending my time actually show that i'm somewhere or between fourth and fifth place so we can see from polls on the ground at the d._n._c. doesn't accept that my message is working that people are responding so it'd be crazy not to keep going and i'm definitely going to okay. You're going to keep going in the meantime. We heard the d._n._c. Announcing today. They're going to block virtual caucus in iowa that critical critical first caucus state the moines register says the iowa virtual caucus blew up if you're not a political nerd why should people care. What's your take on this well. I think the virtual caucus was a way for people to vote who were for some reasons couldn't find the time to get to a caucus which take several hours so that means people are homebound who might be seniors. It means people who have two jobs in ca have to be at work. It means people who can't find childcare. People people estimated that if in fact the virtual caucus were allowed there would be up to a third more participation so i'm absolutely in favor of the enfranchisement enticement of voters who otherwise can't get to the polls. I think this is a terrible decision. Do you not buy their explanation. Which is they couldn't assure the security security of such a system look. I think there are some security issues but i think they've had months to work on and i think they've got another five months to get that in order and get a backup system in line so i think this is something that is doable and when you're talking about disenfranchising a third of iowa democrats it seems to me. It's important enough to make sir. You can do it because i believe they can so you think the wrong decision was made on the caucus. You're not alone in that this week. You also ran an ad in iowa criticizing the d._n._c. over the debate requirements armaments and there's also been a lot of ongoing unhappiness about mixing the climate debate. Are you happy with the d._n._c. and its leadership and their influence on this campaign look chris. I'm a political outsider for ten years. I've been taking on corporations and beating them as an outsider in the political system. I've also started the need to impeach campaign which was getting a over eight million americans to sign in a petition to impeach and remove our criminal president in all of this. I've been pushing the system to try and be more democratic. I've started an organization to register engage and drive voters to the polls which did a historic job in two thousand eighteen so as far ars. I'm concerned my job over the last ten years has been to reinvigorate democracy at the expense of corporations and political insiders. I don't see myself itself as being in a different position here. I'm with the people i think every one of the stances that i've taken have been tried to reflect the fact that human beings feel shut out by this government shut out by this political system and that for us to reinvigorate our democracy. We're going to have to take it back and that's what i've been trying to do. And that's what i continue then you to try and do tom steiner. Thank you so much for coming on have a good holiday. Thank you chris youtube coming up.

Blue Wave Rolls On as Trump's 2020 Popularity Dwindles

"People use the skies economy legal votes, Germany, voter fraud. Everybody. Why? Good, man. Doug, trouble you for a jury out get outta here. How Homer who is who murdered? My name is. Neto? Oh my goodness. It's unbelievable Willie. There are moments when. Donald Trump tweets things that I suppose we should be shocked by it just makes you laugh that yesterday's was so preposterous. I mean. I mean is he suggesting that they're doing the home or sort of like the Bobby Valentine going back into the dugout after getting kicked out wearing a mustache? Me Donald Trump's not even trying anymore. These are so preposterous again and doing it all. All to benefit a senatorial candidate in Florida. Who's going to end up winning? Anyway, I have to admit when I saw that quote from the president yesterday the interview he gave to the daily caller. I thought it was the onion. I thought it was made up. There was no way that he could have said what he said. But what he did say is people go to their car after they voted they put on a different hat put on a different shirt. And then they go back and vote again, quote, it's really a disgrace. What's going on the president said of the vote is unbelievable. You know, he had he claimed that he talked to professional golfer who said a couple of people cut in line and voted twice in California. And out of that, of course, the gulford denied it the professional golfer denied it thousand sixteen and Donald Trump set like what six million people voted illegally. Right. Right. Well, I mean, there's always some straw man thing that he can make what was his buddy who never goes to Paris. Anymore? Doug, Jim, his I'm telling you. I'm telling you later on in this block. There's going to be a guy who's going to show up here. Who's gonna look like little Donny Deutsch baby Gabi, get baby gap T shirt like, but wait that guy has no hair. Maybe that's Heilmann dressed as Deutsche to try to get in to comments in the block rather than just the one that he's supposed to be legally on. It's really a disgrace. Is it is grace with all of these counterfeit? Donny Deutsch is really upsets, we know. He's he's, but he's got these stories. He's got the guy that comes back stage in talks doing guy that doesn't go to Paris and one of my favorites when he first sorting talking about North Korea and reaching out to North Korea. He said that he had parents children who were still low. Korea. That's better coming up to him and saying, please, please bring my son home. They of course, would have had to be one hundred twenty five, but that never seems to get the way of Donald Trump. It's amazing. We'll get into that story. We've got national. We should we should actually maybe somebody should come up with a name for him. Because he spins these tales. What would it be? This publicist. Name is dawn. I. John Miller, John I think there are a number three or four John John John Miller. Yes. All right. So we've got you could see here national affairs analyst NBC news NBC, the co host and the executive producer shot of Showtime's the circus. John Heilmann also with us. Former aide to George W Bush White House and state departments. At least Jordan, the president of the council on foreign relations, Richard Haass and reporter for the Washington Post. Eugene Scott Mika has the morning off so election update still coming in as a democratic candidate makes history and vice President Mike Pence joins the president in denying defeat for Republicans. Four term congressman Jeff Denham has conceded his race in California's central valley to democrat, Josh harder. And in New Jersey Representative Tom McArthur, one of the architects of the two thousand seventeen Republican health care Bill has conceded his race to democrat. And the Kim. A former aide to President Obama came will be the first. Korean American to serve in congress at twenty years and the first ever to represent the state of New Jersey, the updated count in California's thirty ninth district shows, the lead of Korean American Republican young Kim has shrunk to just one hundred and twenty two votes over democrat kills this narrows and democrat. Katie porter is now nearly four thousand votes ahead of Republican incumbent meaning Walters, but in an interview with NBC news this morning. Vice President Mike Pence says he thought the Democrats failed to make sizeable gains. We made history by expanding our majority in the Senate. We we want some great elections and governor's offices around the country. And we didn't really see that Blue Wave in the house of representatives. Come our way. I think it's because the people see the results, but those results tell a much different story, the Democrats gaining at least now thirty four house seats with seven still undecided along with flipping seven governors mansions, three hundred thirty six eight legislative seats for total of three hundred eighty in the Trump era and multiple statehouse chambers, Joe. So if you look at just Orange County, for example, which we started with their there will not be Republicans in Orange County representing those districts, which is a shock to you and other Republicans who viewed that as a cradle of conservatism in the state of New Jersey now, they're only be one Republican representing that state in Washington. Yeah. I mean, that's the lowest dab for Republican since Woodrow Wilson. Then you'd have to go back over one hundred years to find the Republicans in a worse state their Orange County like you said an earthquake Nevada an earthquake Republicans just getting thrown out of statewide offices local offices, you name it. John highland. I. I look at Mike Pence, and I just I'm saddened by the fact that Mike feels like he has to lie to a reporter needs to grade himself for Donald Trump. And saying that well, we didn't really see that blue way. We had a great Tuesday. It would be funny. If it weren't so sad for this guy who were want who was actually once not only a respected politician, but a respected man. But now he is giving Baghdad Bob a bad name saying that they had a great Tuesday. And this is I don't know. I just had a Tory comment here. This is what repelled so many educated suburban voters that Mike Pence and people like Mike Pence and their representatives would lie that try to line up with Donald Trump and it catches up with them. It always catches up with them. And they keep doing it. Tuesday was a massive Bluewave. Was it not especially in the house? It was on equivocally and without any reservation. You can say that in the numbers just keep stacking up. Joing look two things to say one is. I mean, you said Mike Pence was once a bunch of things that we're all complimentary. It's been a pretty long time since that was true. And I've watched I watched the show pretty carefully even on the days. I'm not on. And you guys pointed out we have all pointed out the number of times in which Mike Pence over the course of the last two years and dating back to when he was put on the ticket has mimicked aped. Echoed Donald Trump in his various misstatements in lies. And so this is now kind of the pattern for for for Mike Pence mucus always bond of the one of the shot of Pence doing the thing with the water at the that. That's exact- water bottle is bottle thing. That's that's his now that that's the visual manifestation of what he does all the time, which has to do exactly whatever Donald Trump does apparently is afraid that if he ever contradicts in any way, they're physically or verbally the president that will get in some kind of trouble. This is this is like looking at the sky and saying that the skies red when it's blue or saying that down is up, but I'm not at this point. I'm not surprised by anymore. I'm not I don't want to say that it's not a registered ridiculous. But it is really now par for the course with Mike Pence. So at least help add was it. How bad was Tuesday for the Democrats. This is I've got to say, this is the slowest rolling Bluewave lines the scene in the first Austin powers where security guards screams. No and esteem rollers coming at him. And then they do a side shot and the steam rollers actually twenty yards away going one mile an hour. That's how that this Bluewave is head to feel for Republicans because every day brings more bad news. Well, I'm gonna steal a line that one of my strategist friends shared with me describing the Bluewave Moore's a blue tornado you look at where this blue tornado hit and it hit it took out any Republicans and it clearly hit in a big way in arms county and it also hit in New Jersey, and what do those areas having common suburban voters who traditionally vote Republican. And are possibly shifting away from the party in a permanent realignment, or at least a temporary realignment because they do not like Republicans in the air of Donald Trump. Yeah. They certainly don't, you know, Willie something interesting happening on the democratic side of things, and you know. Leave it to some Democrats. They remind me of Republicans in this way. But some Democrats try to clutch defeat from the jaws of victory. You actually have. Quite a few Democrats now talking about replacing Nancy Pelosi saying she's defensive. But I mean, first of all it's not like every Republican didn't run against Nancy Pelosi in two thousand eighteen and yet what happened they had their largest wave since Watergate. So and also. She's one of the most competent speakers of the house as far as getting things done and knowing how to hold her troops together in recent memory. Yeah. But there's a long list now growing list of Democrats say she should not be the speaker. She peers though, unfazed by the number of Democrats say they won't support. Her is reportedly now at seventeen at least twelve incoming democratic freshmen who won last week say they will not support or in fact, campaign down that that number could grow as more Democrats continue to win their racists on Tuesday carbon. Seth Moulton of Massachusetts says he is quote one hundred percent confident Pelosi does not have the votes locie responded yesterday saying that she will be the speaker, quote, no matter what he said also yesterday congresswoman, Marcia fudge told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. This people are asking me to do it. And I am thinking about it you, gene, Scott. What are the chances that Nancy Pelosi despite all this noise? We're hearing. Is not the speaker of the house, come January. I don't think it's likely at this point. Because what Nancy Pelosi will do is communicate to those lawmakers that aren't on board with her right now that she has been able to deliver in the ways that many of the democratic voters are expecting the Democratic Party to automatically. Do we look at Seth more than one of the issues that he has that he wants to perhaps represent many of the people that the Democratic Party has not been able to rely on four victories. The reality is the Democratic Party successes last Tuesday were because of women of color where because of minorities and millennial communities and many of these white working class voters moten is hoping that could see some someone like them more reflected and leadership just cannot deliver the votes consistently for the Dem's that the Dem's needs a push back on Trumpism. Richard highs. You you. We have seen you. And I've seen others have seen. What happens when you put somebody in speaker of the house that may be an ideolog or maybe there because of certain political positions. If you don't have somebody that knows the ins and outs of running the people's house as as as it's called anarchy breaks out very quickly. And you have something that looks a lot like Newt Gingrich's last couple years in the speaker. If the Democrats aren't careful Joe they're going to start looking like Republicans, and it's going to it's going to basically, look like politics at usual, and it'll be so much better. If the Democrats essentially started talking very carefully about policy that it didn't look like a political free for all that they had more important things on their minds than this kind of inter nation warfare. And that would be again away they would distinctive shows because one of the one of the messages, I would think of the non Bluewave Blue Wave is the people are tired of of Washington politics. So why would the Democrats now this enormous demonstration that they didn't get their own message? John. This isn't the beginning of this noise. We've heard this. This idea of challenging ANSI Pelosi quite a bit in the last couple years. Tim Ryan has talked a lot about the need for a new generation, but in generational terms in the democratic party's leadership. What are you put the odds, though, her not being speaker, low low? But look, I mean, the reality is Democratic Party has a cleavage is that our ideological and has Kluge is that are related identity Nancy Pelosi as Sheila, she is is she's a woman, she's also septuagenarian white woman and in a party, that's increasingly diverse increasing the younger by the day. This Blue Wave is still with an incredibly diverse cast, very young up and coming candidates. There were people who are concerned about the possibility that the way would not be that big. So there was talk about it in advance. A lot of candidates rast who are running whether they would support her if if they won some of them wanted to get on what they thought was the right side of history, which was to be in the vanguard of this new wave of democratic politicians now now she has delivered not just even despite all of the. Attacks on her back that she was the attack is Joe said by every Republican candidate the president. I had states everyone focuses on anti Pelosi. And yet the party has won this giant victory. And she's someone that a lot of democratic candidates owed their seats to she is a fundraising powerhouse. There is no one of the Democratic Party raises more money than ANSI Pelosi. That's part of the reason why the odds are low because there are a lot of sitting and a lot of newly elected Democratic Congress people who know that she provided for them. This election has provided for them in past elections, and we'll vied for them in future elections on top of all of that. She is a spectacularly disciplined tactic tactician. She knows how to run the house and the position she's in now given the size of this victory. And given what lays ahead and the kind of tackle this is necessary. She will face a challenge. But I think the likelihood that she's not the neck speaker for Democrats is before berry berry, low Willie. Just use a sporting analogy. Of course, this really would be like the Red Sox asking whether they were going to keep Alex Cora are not mere thinks he's completely botched the off-season fired or anything. Amir's tough. But but it really would again. The Democrats best performance since nineteen seventy four which of course, the Democrats were just coming off of Watergate and Richard Nixon's resignation like two or three months earlier. This is an extraordinary they end up with thirty eight thirty nine forty seats picked up and running the house of representatives has nothing to do with ideology. It has everything to do with competences borrow a phrase from Michael Dukakis, it's all about being confident and being tough and knowing how to keep your caucus together in very difficult times. And Pelosi's better better at that than than just about anyone certainly better than that than anybody in the Democratic Party right now. So why get rid of your Alex Cora after a championship season? And the other thing to say because of the her toughness that you just talked about there is that when she. He does move on. Or when she does hand that gavel over. She will do it on her terms. She won't be run out by insurgent. I don't suspect. We got some other headlines this morning. We'll come back to politics in a second. But the LA times has new reporting on the difficult decisions officials had to make when the campfire the deadliest in California history. I began to spread last Thursday to prevent roads from being clogged. The report says officials staggered evacuation alerts in the city of paradise ordering residents to evacuate from the areas. Closest to the fire. I according to the LA times it soon became clear the fire was just moving too fast for that plan and scale of accusation, then was ordered. But by that time, the report claims the city already was being consumed. Meanwhile, more remains were discovered in torched homes yesterday and Butte county officials added more names to the list of those who were unaccounted for that number now stands at two hundred and ninety seven while the death toll has risen to fifty six. The sheriff is warning evacuate. Is that more remains may be discovered by residents returning to their communities? Let's bring a now Bill Cairns with a look at the current conditions Bill. How does it look yesterday? We got away with another windy day in southern California. Without any big blazes. Flaring up today we've gotten rid of red flag warnings notice the winds coming from onshore. So that's more more moisture in the air. Temperatures are a little bit cooler, and it would be in the twenty to thirty five mph range in southern California. So that's good. But we're gonna continue with these fire threats until the rainy season begins which is now about a month late. Here's a good little maybe piece of good news. This is next week into Friday looking at the possibility at least of a rainstorm coming into California. That's the point we're at now, we're hopeful for like a seven eight day forecast to give rain because up until then nothing. So let's talk about our big storm are nor'easter overnight Saint Louis three to four inches of snow ice. Storm Indianapolis, Cincinnati, huge rainstorm going up these coast. It was cold enough for ice though, overnight areas and the mountains of Virginia. In northern Virginia. And right now in Washington DC is mixed some light rain, and sleet, depending on your elevations. So here's the snowfall map for today. Does really in break out over central Pennsylvania this morning heading into New England as we go throughout this evening. They evening it would be very difficult anywhere north and west of I ninety five the big cities are not that bad. But we're going to really get a good near the Hudson valley central portions of New England everyone's going to get a quick three to four inches would sleet on top of that. Then will get windy and rainy later on tonight. It'd be a lot of school cancellations and delays Washington. DC you go from sleet to rain by about nine AM, New York City. You look for the snow to begin right around about one to two PM. And then over the rain by about six PM, you get the idea here willy it's going to be a mess on the roads this morning this evening in the airports a lot of delays to ugly out there Bill. Karen, thanks so much Bill. Michael avenue has been arrested in Los Angeles on suspicion of felony domestic abuse the alleged incident took place on Tuesday. The details have not been publicly. Disclosed including the reporting party or any potential injuries avenue who has risen to fame as the attorney for stormy Daniels. His considering a run he says for the twenty twenty democratic presidential nomination has been released on fifty thousand dollars bond. He released a statement denying the quote bogus allegations. Here's a strange wife says she was not involved in the alleged incident and both she and his first wife release statements saying he never had been violent. The LA times reports seventy is set to make his first quarter appearance on December the fifth setting online booking records coming up on morning. Joe what Defense Secretary James Mattis told troops about why they are deployed at the border. Mitch McConnell blocks vote to protect the special counsel. What that means for the future of the Russia probe all that? And a lot more. When we come back on morning, Joe. Given instruction. I do want to put this mission. Arcade military turns if what we're doing is lane wire, I want you to tell them we are operated in support of plush mortar place do not shea. We're supporting a federal agency right now. The only thing we've been asked for is put in obstacles provide transportation and provide housing chill obstacle placement transportation, helicopters, basically, and she one thirties that would move larger number trips longer distances. We've been asked for nothing more right now as Defense Secretary James Madison homeland security secretary Kirstin Nielsen visit America's southern border yesterday meeting with US troops sent there by President Trump to defend he says the United States against a caravan of migrants secretary Mattis says they're currently fifty nine hundred troops deployed to the border. And the anticipates that number will go up to around seven thousand. So Joe he was asked Defense Secretary Mattis was asked by the troops. When he's addressed than there at the border. What's our Jek here? What are we doing here? And he said, quote that is somewhat to be determined. That was the long term goal. He said in the short term lay the wire in the long-term quote somewhat to be determined. I saw a lot of outrage from active duty and veterans groups online yesterday about that comments of an open ended commitment not even being able to tell the troops themselves. Why they're there. And the answer is that he's there. He was there and Nielsen was there and the troops were there simply because they are political props for a president that used this threat during a campaign that is over. And Richard Haass. So the president makes this create SIS threat of a migrant invasion. It ends up being a horrible political move for him. He loses basically every suburb from coast to coast destroys, the Republican majority. Biggest wipeout since Watergate and the president I guess doesn't feel like he can back out of it now. But. That's the president. We know Donald Trump. We know who he is tell us about James Mattis. How should James Mattis be handling this puts James Mattis? The secretary of defense who truly is a good man in an impossible situation. What you saw was a good man struggling today. He doesn't want to out basically explicitly say, this was a terrible idea. The commander in chief misused or abused his power using the troops. If you will as a political prop on the other hand, he couldn't give them a sense of their mission. The idea that there to put wire up. That's I think that's why people volunteered for for the army. You've got a border patrol. You've got a national guard. These people are far away. Joe no matter how you slice and dice it. There's no way you can justify this deployment. So what you basically saw was a decent, man. Trying to avoid saying just that. And it puts them in an impossible. It's it's a sign that those who work for Donald Trump, shall we say it's hard to to get out of there unscathed and this. Say walk away walk away in protest. Why doesn't he quit? My guest is two things. One is for someone who spent his entire career serving. I'm just guessing here. It's it's very hard. It's not in your DNA. It's something you tend to do even though he's a civilian. And I think he and a lot of people around him genuinely believe they know the full range of issues, they're dealing with that if he were to go, and depending upon who is a successor problematic, and as bad as things are now across the board as you know, bad situations can get worse. But my guess is spoken to him about this. My guess he's had to thought about it under these circumstances, Richard. I think that that's pretty generous defense of secretary Mattis at this point because what's happening is pretty shameful. And he knows better. And he could choose to resign by what is a blatant misuse of the US military. He cannot explain why national guard would not suffice. If you. Shelter. The transcript of the press briefing yesterday on the plane, the gaggle it is just a stunning how he says we'll secretary Nilsson. You know, that's a question for secretary Nielsen. He can't answer what the objective is. And then with the troops. I really have so much admiration for those troops yesterday who asked him tough questions, and they weren't mincing words. They were saying why what is the mission? Why are we going to take this wire down what what's the deal here? And that's a hard thing to do. And I'm glad that they are asking secretary Mattis the hard questions that we all need to be asking to Richard. Let's let's move to some breaking news just broken out where to ago, the New York Times Wall Street Journal Washington Post reporting that prosecutor one of the top prosecutors in Saudi Arabia are going to be seeking the death penalty for five Saudis who they claimed were. Responsible for the killing of kashogi. Is that enough will that be enough or does disorder Rabia continued to remain? On the wrong side of not only the law, but also on the wrong side of the international order Saudi Arabia strategy is to basically whether the storm and this is part of the charade of weathering the storm, and it'll be enough for a lot of people in Saudi Arabia will be enough for a lot of people in the SUNY our world, particularly those who are getting supported by Saudi Arabia, maybe enough for the Trump White House, and for Jared Kushner, it won't be enough for most people in Europe for people in congress and basically for anyone who has anything remotely like twenty twenty vision. But this is the strategy. I think the Saudis are betting that can go through this charade that the world needs them one because of their oil because their financial wealth and also they're going to be part of Samantha Orion coalition and their bettering betting if they just hunker down show, they can get through this and that that's their strategy. But this is Sharon Reed. No, one will believe it except those who wanna believe and Richard is the White House is President Trump betting on the same thing that the storm will blow through in other words, this was the story in the front page of every paper lead every newscast. Then the midterm elections rolled in. We had a shooting at a synagogue with a shooting at a bar out in California. He's the White House going to take this up as an issue in punish Saudi Arabia. No, they're going to do the minimum amount possible. Just announced in the last forty eight hours at they're going to send John Abbas aid. The former the journal used to head central command as the American Basser Saudi Arabia his confirmation hearing, shall we say we'll prove to be rather interesting. But no, it's clear to me that the administration has decided that he that they are better off with them. There's no real internal alternative they to part of the whether the store strategy. I don't much like to say, the least I don't think it's a recipe for stability in Saudi Arabia or or the region, but that's the administration's policy. Just just how filthy the whole thing is. I mean, it's just it's just, you know, everybody everybody with is to see believes NBS was behind ordering the assassination of this of this journalist, right? And now the Saudi prosecutor also at the direction of NBS order. A cover up floor him. Bs is now going to order the death penalty for a bunch of people who were ordered initially by NBS commit the crime. It's just a it's just the moral atrocity here, which is horrible enough in the first instance, just compounded, by the way, they're handling this again, maybe those people deserve the death penalty because they carried it out. But the idea that the crown prince is just pulling the puppet strings here and just dispensing with human life all over the place, casually and taking no responsibility whatsoever. It's just the whole thing is just so fowl wreak. Does Donald Trump look that he isn't willing to confront in any way, shape or form this absolute atrocity? I agree with everything you, you shouldn't what's worse is this is this is not. I mean, you've got the Saudis rather than winding down in Yemen. They're amping it up. This is part of a pattern of reckless impulsive behavior. And this is one of our principle strategic allies in the Middle East. This is not a relationship that will do the United States good in the end. So we'll pay an enormous and it won't work. Well, bottom line Willie as after Donald Trump whenever that comes the Saudis must realize we can never have a functioning relationship with that country is long as m b s is running that country in any way, shape or form. We just cannot do it will never be able to do it right now. The Saudis have a leader who ordered the murder the abduction and the murder of a Washington Post columnist they tortured him. They chopped him up. They buried him. And it will never this will never be. Okay. And we will never have normalized relationships with them again as long as m b s is running that country except for the moment. They're learning. It is okay. Put out a sham and we'll go. Exactly. All right. Still ahead. There was Russian meddling data sharing hate speech. Facebook has seen crisis after crisis in the past several years. And now the New York Times is looking at how top executives responded, namely by delaying denying and deflecting that explosive do stories coming up on morning, Joe. I've used this leverage once with regard to judges it was to receive a vote on tariffs, which we did. And I didn't vote on any until we received that vote on fully prepared to carry through with Senator Jeff flake of Arizona yesterday saying he will not vote to confirm any more of President Trump's judicial nominees until the Senate votes on his Bill to protect special counsel, Robert Muller that Bill was blocked again by Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, the move and the need for flakes vote. Complicates McConnell's top priority of confirming dozens of conservative judges before the end of the year, the Senator from Zona says he is ready to stand firm on his threat. Let's bring in New York Times reporter, Jeremy Peters and columnist at the Washington Examiner. Kristen Soltys Anderson. So Jeremy as you report up on Capitol Hill. What's the impact of Jeff flake making this stand yesterday? He's only in town for a couple more months, but in those couple months. As I said leader McConnell wants to get some judges confirmed. That's exactly right and the window that Jeff flake has here for relevance is quickly closing because once January rolls around there's going to be Senate with at least one or two more Republicans in it. So this is not. I mean, it's a principled stand the kind of which you seen so few Republican senators take just a handful of these guys really another John McCain is gone, and Jeff flake is retiring and Lindsey Graham is back on Trump's side for the moment. At least it's kind of hard to see where the objections of conscious conscience are going to come. The thing is Mitch McConnell can kind of do what he wants. And he has a history of doing what he wants on judges. Anyway, they don't have to go through the judiciary committee where Jeff flake could pose the biggest problem. He could McCall just bring them right to the floor. And we've seen this in the past. He. Mitch McConnell has been willing to break. Historical norms on this kind of stuff. And so then we see Christmas Anderson. Whether you have Lisa Murkowski or somebody else willing to take the same stand in defence of Robert Muller. I guess a big question is. Not to be negative. But if Jeff Jeff flake, we're going to do this. Why didn't he do this six months ago? I'm assuming the reason why he's taking the sand. Now is my guess is that it has something to do with perhaps wanting to preserve that Senate seat narrow Zona not wanting to sort of send draw more fire toward himself prior to the election being resolved. I'm assuming that's why have not spoken with him. I don't have any sort of special crystal ball on that front. But what I also know is that in the exit polls that were taken last Tuesday. What we saw was that actually the political winds have really shifted on this Muller investigation where previously it was pretty consistent that when you ask people in polls, do you want Muller protected? Do you think he's doing a good job? Most of majority of people said, yes, the exit polls on Tuesday despite having tons of bad news for Republicans tons of bad news for President Trump showed a majority of people thinking that this is a politically. Motivated investigation by forty six to forty one margin disapprove of how Bob Muller is handling it now, whether that is because of anything Bob Muller, stunner, simply the political rhetoric around it. I think is an open question, but you can see why Mitch McConnell is not feeling political pressure to pass any legislation to protect Bob Muller. The appetite on the part of the American people in terms of looking at those exit poll numbers just doesn't really seem to be there. That could be John Heilemann out of sight out of mind. Bob Muller did exactly what you would expect prosecutors to do around time of an election. Exactly what James Comey did not do in twenty sixteen and he kept his head low. You can look back and see. Robert Muller's the ratings for for the investigations going up after indictments come out certainly happened. After the indictments of the Russians came out people understood in real terms, why the investigation was so important. I suspect we're going to have a flurry of activity soon that will make any exit polls irrelevant. Well, right Joe. And I think it's I mean to cheer point. It's not just that. He went quiet Muller did over the course these last two months before the election. It's that he hasn't issued an indictment since the summer that very powerful indictments of the Russian intelligence officers that came out in I believe the late June early July. It's now been a while since we've seen anything and those indictments had been the strongest form of speech that we've had on Bihar on behalf of the special counsel. Jeremy I wanna ask you to pick up something that you just said when you were talking earlier, which was referring center flake is taking a position of principle or position of conscience. I just want to cast. Question with a little bit of sin cynical tinge to it. Joe pointed out, the Jeff flake or suggested Lisa Jeff flake, maybe throughout the last couple of years is not done quite as much as he might have done to try to to try to put a brake on Donald Trump in various ways, I just can't help. But wonder if whether in these last couple months that Jeff flake has on the national stage if his behavior does not suggest the as some other political ambitions in mind after he leaves the Senate that might include challenging Donald Trump perhaps as an independent candidate perhaps in a Republican primary. I think more likely the former than the latter. And this is the way he wants to be remembered as taking a futile, but potentially high profile stance against a President Trump try to protect those special counsel. Exactly. And he has a whole book that he's written talking about his conscience and how as a true conservative Trump has has really troubled him. But John, I think you're exactly right. The hissed. History of his voting record doesn't quite line up with the aura around his reputation as some kind of maverick willing to buck his party. I remember very vividly. I think it example that kind of sums up a lot of Jeff flakes career and having ultimately ends of voting with Republicans during the gun control debate after sandy hook when Gabby giffords who could barely speak at the time because she was so gravely wounded came up to him. This is his collie comes up to him grabs his arm in the hallway and can not even get the words out to say vote for this Bill, and he doesn't do it. Kristen elise. Here wanted to follow up on some of the exit polls that you were discussing since those exit polls were taken Jeff Sessions has been fired by Donald Trump. Have you seen any polling on how the public has been responding to that move? Not yet has not been a ton of data. That's come out post-election on that front. But I would say I think it would surprise me a bit. If numbers moved a whole lot. What this really shows is that you have seen a lot of Republican support for the Muller investigation that six months ago a year ago, certainly existed in and was what was bullying those numbers has kind of gone away. And this is just become another typical partisan issues split roughly down the middle with independent sort of switching a little bit one way or the other depending on what day of the week it is. So it would I would say it would surprise me. If there was a dramatic shift in the numbers post the. Firing of Jeff Sessions, Kristen Solta, Sanderson Jeremy Peters. Thanks, guys. Talk to you this morning coming up on morning, Joe one of the reporters behind that big Facebook expose in the New York Times, there's a lot to get through. And we come right back a front page investigation this morning by the New York Times dives into the compounding crises that plagued Facebook over the last year involving Russian interference and privacy breaches based on interviews of more than fifty people including Facebook employee's and lawmakers the times details how some top executives attempted to write the company's wrongs while creating other problems in the process. The times reports that while chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said publicly it was a quote crazy idea that Facebook had anything to do with the siding, the two thousand sixteen election security experts at the company knew otherwise the times found that Facebook gathered evidence of Russian activity as early as spring two thousand sixteen before executives opted to share what they knew what the public and even with. Their own board of directors when the company finally came forward with that information reportedly sought to deflect blame and mask. The extent of the problem while Zuckerberg apologized in public Facebook's chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg allegedly was on a different mission to combat the company's private foes in private social networking site. Allegedly hired a Republican opposition research firm to depict billionaire liberal donor. George Soros as the force behind a broad anti Facebook movement. They also were behind publishing stories that praise Facebook while criticizing Google and apple on a conservative new site. Let's bring in one of the reporters behind this sweeping front page piece political writer for the New York Times and MSNBC political analyst nNcholas confiscatory. Also with us fortune magazine, senior editor at large league Gallagher guys. Good morning. Mick your piece front page for you. What's at the center of this? What's the big headline take away? This is a big takeaway in a big way. Look into a business that spans the globe has reshaped politics the advertising business and daily life. But works in ways, we're still coming to with and which they are still coming to grips with this is a company that knew there were things going on with this information as early as two thousand sixteen but didn't even tell their own board or the public what they knew until the fall twenty seventeen when the damage was already done the two thousand sixteen election and back then Facebook hadn't even had any policy internally on what to do if they found this kind of thing. So shows how they tried to come to grips with the machine they built and didn't quite understand themselves. So what did they find early two thousand sixteen? What were the red flags that should have been communicated up the chain? What they found was some early signs that there were Russian people or rushing agents that we're using accounts to try to get into the accounts of democratic policy makers and leaders, and if progressed from there were later signs that Facebook accounts were being used at try to spread hacked information them credit party. And from there went on to this information, and trolls and butts and all the other probably heard about over the years. Joe, you know, Nick, what's Sissel prizing is. And it starts in the first paragraph. It starts in the lead of your story. And that is that every time there was an executive at Facebook that tried to right wrongs. It seems in the story that Sheryl Sandberg was seething, Cheryl Sandberg angry. She was angry when the board was finally told what the truth was she was angry when an executive began to have. Concerns and started investigating the extent of Russia's interference of Russian agents interference in the democratic process, and she was lashing out at people who were trying to be transparent a year later. It's really amazing. Joe? I mean, this problem was bubbling up under the surface. They tried to get a handle on it. But for very long time through the election. And well after it seems that San main concern, and that of other executives was to contain the damage to Facebook and not to contain the damage to our democracy that was their focus when the problem finally got so big, and they realized how big it was. They admitted a piece of it. And then had to revise in vise and say, you know, what it's actually worse than that. And worse than that. So we see the slow, drip. It's been very damaging the company is, you know. Well, any Gallagher? What do you do what does corporation? Do. That's are actually seems pretty easy. This is. Terrible scandal for Facebook. It interferes with American democracy, and you have someone at the top of the food chain in corporation that did everything she could do to keep the truth from the board to keep the truth from Americans and would lash out at others inside of Facebook that actually were trying to get answers to how much the Russians did interfere in Facebook and by extension or democracy who survives that Joe. It is a really I mean the allegations. And what Nick and the team found here are really damning. And, but this is this is a complicated question because Mark Zuckerberg control sixty percent of the voting. Shares of Facebook fame at one of the best examples of of how founders are controlling their companies these days, everyone seems to think he is going to stay Nick my question to you is that still the case because this is come up over and over again today. Do you think that's still the case? I mean, it's very hard for that. Not. To be the case because of his control the company, and what do you think will be the the the fallout here in terms of them running the company? It's a great question. Look he picture will Sandberg essentially to manage the outside world keep the government off their backs and make money and Facebook goes done those things pretty well. Every time I mean, the money the profit hit a record this year. But here's here's the real issue. The same machine they built that makes them so much money, which has having all this data about you. And to know everything about you. And what you want to read is also what makes Facebook and amazing machine for spreading hate and propaganda. It's two sides of the same coin. So their business model in some place his implicated here, and that's the trouble. It's hard to figure out. It's a hard problem. This all by the way, it's hard to figure out how they can get rid of the bad stuff that undermining their own business. All right, everybody, sit tight here wouldn't continue this conversation. We've only scratched the surface on this huge New York Times front page expose. We'll be right back on morning. Joe? President he will use to skies legal oats driven. When we spotted. You're beached undecided. Investigating who is that? This is the end the mystery. While if it isn't our old friend blue stone, the break magician wanted and six states. Who actually voted Willie about twelve times, and he would have gotten away with it? If it weren't for Donald Trump, those meddling kids. Yes, exactly that meddling dog is. Well, it is it has just become so cert-. He's just it's almost like he's stopped trying. He doesn't expect people to believe him. He just has to spend conspiracy theories. And unfortunately, you've got other people in the Republican party who may actually have a future the Republican party who were spinning conspiracy theories to for people who don't know we're talking about we'll get to this in a moment. The president gave an interview with the daily caller yesterday in which he made an accusation. I think I don't even have to say, but it completely baseless accusation that people often vote once go to their cars change their hats in their shirts and come back and vote again, he went on to say, it's really a disgrace what's going on. But we'll get to that. In just a moment. Let's continue our conversation about the front page piece in the New York Times, titled delay denied deflect. How Facebook leaders leaned out in crisis? Nick. What's been the reaction from Facebook to the story? So far have you heard from well over the night Facebook cut ties with the PR firm, and the story definers also saying that they had not specifically asked to Finers to do this or that op research, but look what they've said is they've accused us of having things wrong in the story. They had not identified anything in the story that actually wrong so far and they're under a lot of flack there's a lot about rage from people who work for George Soros, for example, who are outraged. That Soros was used to try to credit the critics of this company. But Nick, how sleazy is it that Facebook? What are the top corporations in America is is his doing what the sleaziest Republicans did regarding the care van trying to pan a conspiracy theory on George Soros and at the same time trashing apple trashing Google on right wing sites. It's just this is sleazy as it gets again. I just wonder if if if Zuckerberg not going to do anything to clean house. What about the board? Does anybody have power to bring accountability to this corporation? Well, he and Sandra basically pick nose to the board. So I don't think we can see much accountability there. Peter Thiel aboard member said that he agrees with with Kubrick's pass statement that the Russian information on Facebook is not a big deal in the election. We'll look for accountability. There. I will point out to Joe. The the research conducted on Soros does not appear to be made up work spiracy theory. There are basically saying look some of the groups that are protesting Facebook have gotten some money from stores philanthropies. It's their bad luck. That was just before the caravan smear the controversy, which is ridiculous. I also point out. It is ironic that when this company is being asked to take on fake news. They're also paying a PR company to write pieces for them propaganda on us in thank news channel online. Yeah. And John Heilemann. They're so cynical in that they're playing both sides. They they trot out the name of George Soros that anti Semites on the far. Right. All right will be offended by. And then I then they reach out. I think the Addy defamation league and try to get any attacks against Facebook, termed is anti semitic. Now, if that is not as Orwellian and his sleazy as anything we've ever seen in PR, please show me the major American Corporation. That's done anything sleazy or in terms of PR. Well, I wouldn't want to Doug to down into that particular cesspool. They're all off a lot of major American corporations that doesn't really sees things. These things are pretty sleazy though. And I think part of the thing Joe is that, you know, for a lot of these companies Silicon Valley when they first start to get this big this powerful, and they start to get sucked into the rumour politics in play. They do something Facebook has clearly done over the. Course last couple of years, which accumulate an extraordinarily large number of advisors outside consultants. And in that scenario, you end up almost always with a race to the bottom. It's like the the high minded advisors always lose out to the to the advisors who are kind of wanted to play knife fight politics because that is the kind of the argument is, you know, you're in a knife fight guys. And you're going to have to get down there in the in the gutter and really fight your way out. I want to ask you Nick, though. Here's a pig. You were talking before about any trust enforcement. And I very specific thing not about any trust. But about just the political landscape, right, Microsoft, which was the last big company that got in trouble on an trust front in the United States got in trouble. When a moment came where the Clinton administration on one side and Orrin Hatch who was then the chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee on the other side. They had by a bipartisan problem, and when they looked up and saw the Republicans were intent on on interest enforcement and the Clinton administration which Benchley took them to court and try to break them up. Also. That was when the company was really in trouble. They didn't have any real allies across the ideological spectrum. So as you look at this new congress, and you look just at the political landscape in general going forward his Facebook about to get in that place where they're facing equal criticism were similar criticism from both sides of the partisan isle. I think absolutely John the political consensus that protected these companies in Washington for years and years is now fractured conservatives think they're being censored on Facebook and liberals think that Facebook handed the election to Donald Trump who saw a press release yesterday from the incoming chair of any trust committee in congress in the house of blistering press release. That's just there is more trouble head. I think Facebook believes they can get around privacy rules, successfully, I think they are deathly afraid of being broken up into smaller companies that is a mortal threat to their business or regulated like a media company or that threat. And by the way, Joe said who can bring accountability to this company. Joe very good question. The government. I mean, I think. I think that's that is what we're looking at now. And so we'll just have to see what happens to that side of it with Casey on Capitol Hill and the minute Nick incredible piece of reporting again on the front page, New York Times or NY times dot com. Thanks election update. Still coming in now as a democratic candidate makes history and vice President Mike Pence joins the president in denying defeat for his party. Four term congressman Jeff Denham conceded, his race in California's central valley to democrat, Josh harder. And in New Jersey Representative Tom McArthur, one of the architects of the two thousand seventeen Republican healthcare Bill has conceded his race to democrat. Andy, Kim, a former aide to President Obama Kim will be the first Korean American to serve in congress in twenty years and the first ever to represent jersey the updated count in California's thirty ninth district shows the lead of Korean American Republican young Kim has shrunk to just one hundred twenty two votes over democrat gilson's narrows and democrat, Katie porter. Is now nearly four thousand votes ahead of Republican incumbent Mimi Walters, but in an interview with NBC news this morning. Vice President Mike Pence says he thinks Democrats have failed to make sizeable gains. Expanding Jordi in the Senate. We had we want some great elections and governor's offices around the country. And we didn't really see that Blue Wave in the house of representatives. Come our way. I think it's because people see the results. Well, the results tell a different story than the one the vice president's telling their with Democrats gaining at least thirty four house seats as of right now with seven still undecided along with flipping seven governors mansions three hundred and thirty six state legislative seats for total of three hundred eighty pickups in the Trump era and number of statehouse chambers. Let's bring in now White House reporter for the Associated Press. Jonathan Lemere chief White House correspondent for the New York Times. Peter Baker and NBC news Capitol Hill. Correspondent and the host of Casey on MSNBC Casey Casey's that snow behind. You is that what I'm seeing right now. Actually, really depressing me out of your face. I want to ask you this guy over here is that actually a mirror. Do you think that's compass? Ori- went to his car changed his clothes and put on. Discussed. I can't I wanna see these wardrobe. See your ID card to prove the US. I'm not sure. It's really go through. Yeah. I can prove that it's Lemere. Jonathon, let me ask you quick question. Did the Red Sox make a mistake extending chorus contract? I mean, he only managed team that won one hundred eight games. Yeah. There's room for improvement. I don't know what they're thinking here. I don't know what they're thinking behind the next season. Yeah. I was gonna say you're worried that he's botching the season, aren't you? He's he's he's he went to south of the night. I saw that was time. He could've spent preparing. Already. I'm worried he didn't win manager the year. I don't know what they're doing. Joe? I mean, I think we have to set our expectations as low as possible for next Nancy Pelosi. Yeah. Exactly, I think it may be fourth place hope hopefully, fourth place, if we're lucky so Jonathan house, the White House responding to this ongoing Bluewave, we know the president is is throwing out conspiracy theories left and right. But there is little doubt is they're not inside the White House. This was drubbing. Is there any talk? Does anyone believe they can get the president to modify his behavior moving forward? So Republicans don't get wiped out two years from now. No, I think it's exact opposite people around the president before the election were privately saying, they did expect the Democrats to win the house despite his rhetoric of Redway there. No one really around him thought that was going to happen. They were bullish on the Senate. They held on. But they knew the house was in trouble and more than that. They've been trying to prepare for what that means going forward, the onslaught of investigations there on the horizon here from the democrat controlled house, and there have been some efforts behind the scenes prepare for that too. They're trying to staff up. Set up some sort of war room going forward as not happened yet. They believe that they can try to personalise vilify. These new committee chairman sort of in that that effort could include the president going on Twitter and assigning them nasty nicknames. Which is something he likes to do somewhat house. Eight put it to me once they wanna make those chairman and chairwomen famous for all the wrong reasons, but there's little expectation that the president will modify his rhetoric we'll be small steps towards by partial and you saw the criminal Justice reform. Effort yesterday. There may be some extras on opioids there seems to be some doubt that a grand plan like infrastructure could really come together because there's not much appetite from Democrats to work with this White House, nor should there be. I don't think you're gonna see much from this president going forward. In fact, I think the expectation people around him that he's going to dig in further only heightened the rhetoric only in claim the partisan divides that his how he thinks he won last time around and thinks how he can win again in two years, boys. He's certainly not looking at the maps we all saw last Tuesday. And and those maps continue getting worse Casey hunt for the Republican. So what is the mood of House Republicans after all the Republican party's controlled? The house of representatives for twenty of the last twenty four years. This is going to be new for several members. And most of those Republican members are going to be in a position they're just not used to being in the minority and for the most part being irrelevant. It's pretty remarkable job. I was thinking through that as I talked to Mark meadows on at the capitol yesterday when they did their leadership elections. I mean, the freedom caucus in particular, this group of right-wing Republicans has been used to being able to frankly steer the direction of almost everything that was happening in the house. And that's just simply not going to be the case the hallway outside the meeting that they had in the morning, which is usually packed full of reporters was basically empty, which tells you a lot. But you know, Joe, I do think one thing we shouldn't lose sight of is that it's not clear to me that Democrats can get this project off the ground without having a real crisis point themselves. This this battle over Nancy Pelosi becoming speaker. I think is really escalated in the course of the last twenty four to forty eight hours of as members have been here. I think it's going to be bloodier than we expected perhaps to be I think she and her team have insisted over and over again, she's going to be the next speaker that that there's really no alternative, and it's true that no very viable contender stepped up. We know that congresswoman Marsha fudges considering running against her. But it's not clear she would get the support. But there are more members coming out and saying they wanna vote against her on the floor. Then I think we were expecting, and I do think it's really going to be something to watch. So Peter Baker the president nited states has a completely preposterous and invented excuse for these Republican losses. He claimed yesterday without providing any examples or evidence that people are voting illegally by wearing disguises speaking to the daily caller, the president said this, quote, the Republicans don't win, and that's because of potentially illegal votes when people get in line that have absolutely no right to vote. Vote and they go around in circles, sometimes they go to their car put on a different hat put on a different shirt come in and vote again, president continued if you buy a box of cereal, you have a voter ID, they try to shame everybody by calling them racist or calling them something anything, they can think of when you say you want voter ID, but voter ID is a very important thing. Not making up a word of quotes. Even the part about the shirts and the hat and coming in and voted cereal box and the cereal boxes. Yeah. So your idea to get those rights so Peter Baker. Let's just broaden this out a little bit, and you can speak to those quotes if you like, but presidents state of mind right now, a president who didn't show up in France at a ceremony to commemorate the one hundred anniversary of the end of World War. One of president who didn't go across the bridge on Veterans Day to lay a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery. A president who all of our reporting tells us is frustrated by the results of the midterms a president who knows the Muller investigation continues of president who's now confronted by these written questions from the special counsel's office. Where is he right now as you talk to people around him? Yeah. It's a great question. I think he sort of flailing a little bit in his post-election period. He came out strong the day after election trying to refrain the results and the best way possible saying that he considered it a great victory actually, not a defeat. He took aggressive action of firing his own Torney general and installing replacement who's known to be skeptical of the Muller probe. But you're. But you're right. I think he hasn't quite figured out where he's going to go. He endorsed yesterday. This bipartisan criminal Justice reform. You can see in that moment that possibility how he could govern going forward with a split congress if he chose to areas of possible agreement, but it doesn't last what we saw in the first two years is every time he sort of flirts with the idea of bipartisanship or compromise or consensus reaching across the aisle. It doesn't tend to last very long just yesterday. I was struck by his Twitter feed fee was filled with tweets that basically any president might have said he he freak twenty instance, the he had called the governor of California on these wildfires and told him that that we were behind in the nation, and he the president we're behind the members antagonist of his Jerry Brown, the governor of California, and instead of attacking him has he has so many times in the past. He offered a presidential kind of together kind of message. But then it doesn't last he gives us interview to the daily caller, and he comes up with is very fanciful notion. Voter fraud to explain away his election defeat. So. Point trying to find. We're only chuckling because as you speak the president's doing exactly what you're describing. He's back on Twitter with a completely different tone from yesterday. He wants the country to know the White House is running very smoothly. The results for a nation is good are good. We're the envy of the world. But anytime, I even think about making changes the fake news media goes crazy at cetera et cetera. He goes on Joe. Now, the second tweet the inner workings of the Muller investigation or a total mess. They've found no collusion of gone nuts. They're screaming and shouting at people horribly threatening them to come up with the answers. They want this grace to our nation says the measurement states about Bob Muller, and the special counsels off there's obviously coming to don't. Yeah. All of actually, not true. You know, Richard again, the president has become a parody of himself, and it's very easy to laugh at a man who actually believes that if you buy cereal you. You've got. The ability to get voter ID. I I don't know. I it's actually getting harder and harder to follow what he says. But some of some of is so preposterous and has been rejected by the American people so strongly that again. He and his party suffered the biggest defeat in the house since Watergate that said, I will I've got to admit a meek always talks about lasting damage. What do we do when we hear that Theresa May calls the president up? Dick congratulate him which is laughable, but she's trying to be a good ally to congratulate him on Republican gains, and he acts rude and churlish and just absolutely eviscerates on the telephone. What impact of that? What's the impact of the way, he's treating my crown? I mean who? Who is going to continue trying to deal with the president of the United States. When this is what they get response. Well, the short answer is not just as everyone decided to wait out this administration, but they've essentially aside to work around it and go their own way. The only question I have is someone who taking a step back to what extent is to slash beyond the Trump administration my guest, whether particularly if he's a two term president, he's only one term president. It's not just at the for these four years the world deteriorates, but we've set in motion all sorts of trends, and no one is ever going to look at the United States the same way. Let's be honest about it. If this could happen. It could happen again. This is not the United States. They thought they knew we've taken ourselves out of say the whole Asian economy by not being in TPP, we've raised fundamental questions about our willingness to abide by any international undertaking, or obligation. We trashed our European allies time. And time again. So essentially this sense to them a major signal that after seventy years, this is a qualitatively different United States. They've got to increasingly take matters into their own hands, which among other things might not be good things. It could also mean bad things to ferring to powerful neighbors. But we are we are rapidly bringing about a post American world without any sense of what it's going to look like John Trump is well on his way to being one of the most consequential modern presidents of the United States. The only problem is that most of those consequences. I believe we'll really be bad for the security national interest of the United States and Lee we're watching resident perform this way in good economic times for a lot of people in this country right with low unemployment consumer confidence the Dow's doing well, obviously, it doesn't cover everybody. There's still a lot of people struggling in this country. What happens if this run fades? What happens if we hit a recession at some point in the next two years? Well, it's going to be bad. But it's interesting. You know, there was a lot of talk about how the economy. It was not a central storyline in this in the midterm elections. And that's because midterms the president's approval matters much more than the economy, actually. But you know, things could get very I think that is what we'll see. We'll really force, you know, a bigger change and more. You know, I mean if everyone is suffering right now business doing great. Although business is not happy about the trade, the tariffs policies that was the that was the one thing that they really started to really really worry too serious degree about. But I think that's a great point. And I think everyone say where this bull market has been going on forever. How long can it last the economy is still very strong? But that is a risk. Hey, peter. It's Heilmann here. I want to ask you just as I'm sitting here looking at this most recent Trump tweet that that Willie read, you know, he's got an account here of the moat with the inner workings of the molar investigation being total mess. People going nuts and screaming and shouting at people. The feels to me like that is as you you called his description of voter fraud last last night in the the daily caller have you called fanciful. I would say this seems equally fanciful which is to say somewhere between like ludicrous fabrication and kind of delusional. So just just pin? This one thing down here. What would be Donald Trump's basis for alleging that people inside the motor investigation or screaming and shouting at people horribly threatening them. What would how would he possibly know enough about what's going on inside the Muller investigation? We've make such accusation. I know it seems ridiculous to try to dissect such a tweet, but I would like to do it because any basis which he could make this allegation. Or is this something made up in his fevered mind. A great question you we do need to deconstruct it. 'cause I don't know where this comes from. I don't recognize even the narrative storyline come from particular conservative news. Sources it come from info wars kind of. Hosting. I haven't watched Fox News morning to see if there might be something on that. He's referring to sometimes takes things wisps of information or allegation or surgeons, and then expands to create a whole narrative out there that isn't even based by isn't even based on the original source such as it is. So I don't know what this is based on. And it's clearly though renewal of this war. He's having and has had with the special counsel. We had kind of a two-month erectile during the election Muller kept his head low. The president was happy to let it go a while. But now that the election is over we saw with Whittaker. And now this tweet he's going to be engaging again. And we're we're heading back into that sort of full-fledged battle with the prosecutors who were pursuing the president's description in that tweet of what he believes happening special counsel's office based on nothing the White House. I was mistake could be used to describe the White House. Peter maker, thank you very much. We sort of the segment talking about Facebook and the problems it has with this front page piece in the New York Times. But at four. In you have named a business person of the year. It's Tricia Griffith who is the CEO of progressive the car insurance company, we know from the advertising below anyway, a great great story. I mean, she became CEO few years ago. It was really turned around the culture the sales growth over the past one year and three years has beat apple and Microsoft, and this list is really based on metrics. This is like a lot of our list based on how these companies are performing along with intangibles, but she started as a claims clerk thirty years ago, and she has been worked at the company, which is very common. Among these female for five hundred Theo's we see this before Maryland, Houston Lockheed. Martin started in eighties is now the and the most powerful woman in business. So it's a really really great story. And the company has performance speaks for itself. Nice to see you have a number of women in your top ten list are women. Yeah. So we are starting to see more of that. And we'll continue to get more of that. What's the new issue? Fortunately gallagher. Thank you very much. Still ahead on morning Joe several could be contenders for the White House or biding their time. But not our next guest who already has jumped in presidential candidate, Richard Jetta who made headlines by nearly turning very read part of West Virginia into a blue battleground. I'm Richard Jeddah approve. This message I never dreamed that I would come home only to find children of my own backyard that have it worse than the kids. I saw Afghanistan. Decades fighting for this country. And now it's time to go to DC and defend our homeland. To over fighting. With the working class citizens over. Wales. Hit the road. Democrat Richard jet lost his US. Congressional congressional bid in last week's election for west Virginia's third district. But the race saw the largest swing of Trump voters toward Democrats anywhere in the country. And now he's set his sights on the nation's highest office announcing a run for the presidency in twenty twenty West Virginia state, Senator retired US army Major Richard Jetta joins us now here in New York. It's an auditor meet you, thanks for being here. It's an honor to be here. So I I want to point out to people you lost your race. But in many ways, it was the most impressive race run by candidate the country. President Trump one year district by forty nine points. You lost by twelve. That's a thirty seven point swing. If my math is correct. What did you say to voters in your district to make that big swing? I think it comes down to being able to relate with with voters in the district. They know who I am. They know what I'm about. And I'm the type of person that puts boots on the ground. I believe in being. Accessible to people. I did live videos constantly. So that anybody out there in Washington lobbyists have better access to myself than you do. And I think people fell that. And regardless of the fact that, you know, the presently United States decided to come down there and absolutely campaign against me. I think many people realized what was going on. And they saw with the things that I've done of the how did you handle Donald Trump because there'd be a lesson here? For a lot of people who are running for president. You voted for President Trump in two thousand sixteen you were transparent about that. What changed for you in those couple years where you said actually need to run as a democrat and run against this guy. Well, I'm a democrat period. And I've always been a democrat. I believe that, you know, the Democratic Party has got to get back to what being democrat truly is. That's taking care of a working classes stayed with unions wholeheartedly. Okay. Taking care of elderly stop stop allowing these people to stick their hand in the cookie jars of social security, Medicaid Medicare. Let's protect our and take care of our sick. Let's. Offer a non addictive form of pain management. You know, I'm in the area where we were the lab rats. You know, they threw their Oxycontin had Recode on our people like candy. So how about a non addictive pain management versus that? And then also if you're going to send people to war embrace them, then we're gonna fix them when they come home. And that's what I've always been about. And that's what being a Democrats truly about. And that's the way that I'm going to stay the line that jumped out to me the first semi heard you speak, and we heard it again. And that adds where you said I saw kids in yak yards in West Virginia that we're worse off than the kids. I saw Afghanistan. What did you mean by that? Well in Iraq and Afghanistan village will raise the child that's a fact in America today due to the opioid epidemic. You know, we have mom and dad completely out of the picture. We're talking about there either did from overdose. They're in jail or they're just not there because they're addicted grandma and grandpa trying to raise children on social security. They're already cutting. Mids in half. That's where we're at. And I can take you five minutes from where I live in show you where children have it worse. And it's where you you retire from the military, and you come home, and you realize I caught a lot of flack because sent him sick and tired of hearing that America's the greatest nation because we can whip you we've got real problems in this country. We have the opioid epidemic. It's just ripped us. But we have a healthcare system. That is absolutely. It's a joke. But a big reason why joke is because the very people that cast votes, the very people that are responsible to try to fix this on in that system. They have their own Cadillac healthcare plan. I guarantee you that if every congressman and every Senator and the president United States fail into the Affordable Care Act. I guarantee you we'd fix it quickly because the decisions that they make they knew would would also fall under their own family. So, you know, that's that's that's the issues that we have Casey hunts in Washington with a question for you. Casey. It's good to see you, sir. I'm. I'm wondering based on what you've seen on the campaign trail in your own home state. A lot of people like you used to vote democratic in the last election. We've seen them swing hard to President Trump and Republicans. What are Democrats doing wrong white is that and what's the disconnect between blue collar working folks in America and the Democratic Party? Well, I love this question, and I will tell you. I've said this quite a few times the Democratic Party got away from what being a democrat was. But here's another thing that they do mistakes that they've made is they place it on money. It's about you got two people running for office, and this guy right here has the most money, and this person here doesn't but this person here is hungry. They'll knock on every door. They can relate to the people. But to only that the Democratic Party was thinking of is. But this person has the most money, so they automatically jump on board with this person. And in the event in the end, the person who doesn't have the most money ends up being drowned out, but then you have the democrat with the most money. Running against the Republican that out fund raises him three to one. And who also gets every commercial and wheel of fortune in the end. It's it becomes the the lesser of two evil. And that's what we've got, you know, it's always been well, it's always used to list to evil you're running for president. And as a former military veteran, what do think of the deployment of US troops on the border by Donald Trump? I think it was a political stunt. That's exactly what this was. I mean, the whole the whole thing right before the the midterms about the care of it. And you don't hear about it. Do you? It's it's a political stunt that they use. And they did a great job because it was the talk of the town all the cross the United States of America. But right now, we're taking people away from their families and putting them on a border. They gonna miss thanksgiving for a political stunt. And that really bothers me, you know, we talk about how we support our veterans. But this is not how you take care of our servicemen and women. That's not outs done by any measure your candidacy here is can be considered to be a long shot bit. You've never I understand. It never been to. Iowa you've ever been into Hampshire. The democratic field is going to be very crowded people who have been sort of quietly running for quite some time. How do you how do you break through? How do you do you run against members sort of democratic leadership as well as Donald Trump? How do you stand out in the field? That's going to be crowded and you come in with less, name recognition and fewer resources first off in terms of underdog. I've never been anything, but an underdog my whole life. But I will tell you that I want to do exactly what I did in the congratulates. I'm going to boots on the ground. I'm going to go out there and actually speak to people. And I think that that's the best way to be. You know, I I understand that you know, there's going to be a big field here. And we're going to have to figure out how we can, you know, everybody everybody, okay to differentiate between the candidates, but I think I can do that. I really believe that I think that already offer things that the others don't bring to the table. I will tell you this in two thousand twenty if we continue going and using the same typical models that we've used in the past then get ready. Get ready for more tears. In two thousand twenty it's time for us to get away from that. And I think I bring something completely different. And just tactically the way you've addressed Trump. There's some people are always two camps who say a lot of people ignored him in the midterm elections. They believe that work just talk about the economy talk about healthcare. And then there's another camp that says in twenty twenty you've got to be combat if you got to play Trump's game. You got fight the way he fights getting the mud with them. What would be your approach to the prison? I'm going to say, I'm gonna fight. I'm gonna fight. We're not going to. We're not going to be able to beat this guy about being nice. You know, he's not nice the Republican party's not nice. You know, we got it's like, we gotta stop fighting a battle. We're our enemy is wearing breath knuckles, and we're carrying a pillow knuckled up Senator agenda. It's a pleasure to meet you. Good luck. With your run. I'm sure we'll be talking to you. Again. They Meanwhile, President Trump has concluded his tweet on special counsel, Robert Muller, as we told you earlier he began with the inter workings of the Muller investigation or total. Mess. They have found no collusion of going. Absolutely nuts. They are screaming and shouting at people horribly threatening them to come up with the answers they want. They are a disgrace to our nation and don't and then he just continued care. How many lives they ruin these are angry people, including the highly conflicted. Bob Muller who worked for Obama for eight years? They won't even look at all the bad axe crimes on the other side at total witch hunt. Like, no other in American history. John it's worth underlying again, the president has provided no evidence for the claims specifically in the first part of that tweet about screaming and shouting and all the inner workings of the motor investigation about which the president would have no knowledge. I just it will note first of all as always my my affection for the president's idiosyncratic, punctuation angry people capital capital P. Not sure what that's about under something. But also just as a, you know, just notable. It is true. The Bob Muller were for rock Obama for what else? Do you also work for George W Bush prior to that? And so. The notion that he's a partisan figure is obviously belied by the facts. Casey what's going on with the president right now? What's happ? What's happening in that head meter? We've got him like between between the cereals the between the costumes and the serial discussion and voter ID and the voter fraud accusations last night based on nothing other than whatever's going on inside that head and whatever the things are that he thinks are gathering the forces that threaten them. And then this tweet today, which is actually kind of predictable in the sense that we knew that once Muller started to gear up again, Trump would go start going after again, but what's your sense of of what the factors and forces are that are kind of nut bearing down on President Trump psyche. And how that's kind of manifesting itself in these kind of various reactions. Well, first of all, I'm not inside the president's head, which I'm happy to be on this. Thank you. Pointing casey. But I think what you're picking up on is. Right. And we did know that the president and his team have been involved, or at least we've reported that they've been involved in in answering these written questions from Bob Muller that are related strictly to Russian interference not to obstruction of Justice. And from what I can tell these tweets do come. When he's preoccupied with something they do take us inside his head a little bit. So you know, the other piece of this that's going on on Capitol Hill as well. Are these questions about Matt Whitaker? And is it necessary for there to be legislation to protect Robert Muller? And there are there is some noise going on Jeff flake has told Mitch McConnell. He's not going to back judicial nominees that is could actually be real threat, especially if somebody else joins him that can cause some real problems. But of course, McConnell still saying, you know, what we don't need that. My question is. Well, okay, you're arguing that you don't need it. But what's the harm? In passing legislation that would protect Robert Muller. I think the answer is it would provoke the president, right? Into more of these tweets in the leader has never shown any willingness to go along with the Bill like that. He's been consisted that way. Casey. Thank you very much go enjoy the snow Senator. Thank you again. Great to meet you think you still ahead on morning, Joe. We'll go live to California. The death toll is climbing the campfire tears through the state thousands of homes have been destroyed. Hundreds of people are unaccounted for still this morning. We'll get the very latest next on morning. Joe? Cruz in California are making some progress against those massive wildfires burning at both ends of the state. But the full scope of the disaster is still coming into focus this morning. Joining us from oak park, California in Ventura County is NBC news national correspondent Miguel Almaguer Miguel. Good morning. What does it look like on the ground there? This morning. Will a good morning. This is what search teams are dealing with their combing through the wreckage of homes like this that are nearly unrecognizable. They don't have a precise number on those who remain missing or unaccounted for. But they believe it stands at least a hundred thirty. As the fire danger subsides the search for the missing takes center stage in the devastated mountain towns around paradise. Forensic teams have been carrying out the grim task of combing through ashen rubble for human remains the death toll from the campfire. Now stands at fifty six communications in paradise remains difficult with phone lines and cell service, largely knocked out in many areas. Many searching for their loved ones believe there's reason to be hopeful. I'm looking for my brother, Monte, they made it off the mountain. I haven't talked to it. So I hope Monte itchy could see please call you Carol hacks be is still searching for her son more than five days after she evacuated. Boss. Meantime, evacuation centers overflowing in hundred sleeping in tents. A growing chorus of residence is calling on PGE to take responsibility for the fire. Betsy and Cowley whose property is near the origin of the blaze says, the utility company told her about problems on power lines just today before the campfire exploded Keaveney, this is their fault. They need to be held accountable PGE declined NBC's requests for comment. The cause of the fire remains under investigation in southern California. Where many also believed that power lines may have caused the fires here concern about exposure to toxic smoke. The state's department of toxic substance control said there were no elevated levels of hazardous compounds in the air other than those normally present after a wildfire, but that's little consolation for thousands who've lost almost. Everything and everyone. Despite all of the destruction and damage you see here firefighters are making progress the blaze here in southern California is roughly fifty percent contained in northern California. It's approaching that number and really we could see rain here over the next couple of days or next week. I should say that would of course, be major relief crews or the front ground Willie. But as you say in the meantime, still hundreds unaccounted for let's hope they find their families NBC's McGill alma Garin, California Miguel. Thanks so much still ahead on morning Joe in September. President Trump said he and Kim Jong UN quote fell in love with the North Korean leader may not be sharing that sentiment today. Many reports say Pyongyang is continuing its missile work. We'll talk to former US ambassador Christopher Hill about that. Next on morning, Joe. I like him. He likes me. I guess that's okay. My allowed to say that that was really being tough. And so he will go back and forth. And then we fell in love. Now, really he wrote me beautiful letters and their great Lennon's. We fell in love. Said that he had fallen in love with Kim Jong Hoon yet. There's still plenty of reasons to be skeptical of where North Korea's and these negotiations if I may have you fallen in love with Kim Jong. Well with the prisoners says there's a good relationship there. And look the President Trump made his feelings about North Korea known before the world, even before the United Nations if you'll recall, and he spoke in language that Kim Jong understood clearly that the days of threats against the United States the days of developing ballistic missiles with nuclear weapons that would threaten our people and threaten our allies in the region were over if you're in the car listening on the radio like a lot of people do on morning, Joe. You might have missed the Perez the vice president there stifling a laugh when von Hilliard said the president said he fell in love with the leader of North Korea. That was Mike Pence speaking with NBC news on the sidelines of a summit in Singapore. He's there in place of the president who decided not to attend. Vice president's comments come on the heels of multiple reports detailing North Korea's secret ballistic missile bases and program. Which officials tell NBC news our ongoing citing recent intelligence, outgoing UNM. Ambassador. Nikki Haley said last week, President Trump will meet with Kim for a second time sometime in two thousand nineteen vice president Pence also told me see news, the US will not require Pyongyang to provide a complete list of its nuclear and missile sites before that summit, adding that will be one of the goals for the meeting it self joining us. Now, the dean of the school of international studies at the university of Denver, former US ambassador to South Korea and former assistant secretary of state for East Asia Christopher Hill. Mr. embassador good to see was always Joe has the first question for your job. We're going to get to North Korean also going to ask you if you yourself fall in love with Kim, Jon, but before we do that. Let's let's step back just a little bit and talk about Asia generally region. The president obviously had a catastrophic sequence of events happening happen diplomatically in France. Last week. Let me ask just how bad is the president of the United States is cited to skip this Asian summit after American leaders have been talking about a pivot to Asia now for about twenty years. I think it's very problematic mainly because the whole US China relationship is in tatters. I mean on the one hand we'd like them to work with us on North Korea. But then all this economic stuff, especially with the terror of. So China's out there talking to all these neighbors talking to. The southeast Asian countries talking to North Korea. And where we so I think it's a real problem that the president has chosen to to skip this because I think ultimately if we're gonna make any progress on North Korea, we're going to need China's acquiescence in this. And if you think it's hard to work with them, try work and against them. And that seems to be the game plan right now, we certainly seemed to be in a better place now than we were a year ago when people were taught a lot of lot of knowledgeable foreign policy thinkers were suggesting that perhaps we had a forty fifty percent chance of going to war on the Korean peninsula. Obviously, we're in a much better situation today than we were then, but. But where exactly is this relationship? The president is told us we never have to worry about North Korean nuclear weapons anymore. But it appears I continue moving forward in developing the program. Well, I would ask the same question Tina Turner asked. I mean, what's love got to do with it. I mean, this is this is frankly, really about getting a list, by the way that was that was your thesis, right? You've got to turn the Tertre. Exactly. But the question is you need to know what they've got some people try to let them off the hook by saying. Well, if they tell what they've got then we'll go hit them with with bombs or something. That's not the point we need to know, we need to have a list of their nuclear programs. We got a partial list back in two thousand eight the problem was it didn't include any of the uranium enrichment sites. We're very concerned about now, we've got nothing. And so I think there needs to be a real effort. I understand now that they're going to go ahead with a summit without getting a list. But a list is that's pretty basic stuff. If you're in denuclearization. So yes, we're not having missiles flying were not having nuclear tests. That's that's all good. But I think clearly for people who thought there was some legs to this process. We would've been a lot further today than we frankly are well embassador. Oh, that's kind of been the problem to understand where the legs are in the process all along. Because after the first summit, everyone is still a little baffled. What were the specifics that were great upon because both sides had a different terp relation of what it actually happened, and what going forward, do you think a second summit would accomplish? Or do you think it will be more of Donald Trump saying he solved the problem, but giving no specifics are they good? I have with tough time selling that one. Some six months after he's already said it was salt after all they have not shut down their nuclear facilities. In fact, they're building new missile launching sites as we as we now know him, by the way, the government has known that for some time. So I think it will be very interesting to see what he intends to get out of that. And certainly if I were on a congressional committee in the house, I wanna know what's the plan here. What are we trying to do? And so far, we don't have any. Progress in terms of the key question of denuclearization. Instead, we seem to be making progress on the idea that we're going to have some kind of peace treaty whose purpose from the North Korean perspective is to try to say, okay Americans. Now, you don't need your troops on the Korean peninsula because we've signed a peace treaty. Well, I hope I hope the president doesn't go down that that road ambassador Chris hill. Thank you, always for your perspective to see. Thank you. The fact of the matter was he was this is a story that is not well known it stuck in my mind about was this was in the white, but it really should be especially maybe now retu- meadow and MSNBC present bag, man.

The South Florida Morning Show hr 4 4-6-21

"The south florida morning show with jennifer. Ross in bill adams on newstalk eight fifty. Mtl to the mysterious night at ten hour is the south florida morning. Show this genders diener. Bill care has got more news coming up along the way. Yes but we've just had a revelation here in the studio. We are going to the mailbag today. I don't know when important we could do it right away matter. Whatever you guys want to do. I know we still have yet. Maybe we need to cut him a check. We have to have big voice guy. No let's go to the mail bag. We still have big voice. I thought so they could cut with cova. Did you get left behind idea anyway. A couple of comments about The border situation couple of comments about the vaccination. You know what this is relevant to what we're talking about here or go to the lady that was writing about the Vaccination appointment card confirmation deal. Sure yeah one of our listeners here kathleen hello kathleen kathleen. Kathleen thank you she. Apparently she has some advice here. That i'd never heard before but it's interesting. She says just a heads up. Do not laminate your co vaccination card. You guys know anybody who's done this I heard that somebody was offering a can't for the life of me. Remember who company was offering free lamb nation for your cards really. I guess too if you felt like maybe you get lost or forgot wet or stained or something who knows a wallet sweat. Yeah yeah can have that. We have that. That's okay for advice. One thing i don't have to worry about elliot. What were you in the rain. No is no more. Kathleen email dr kathleen advice. She says don't even carry it around. Just put it somewhere safe. You know maybe with like your passport spot you know where it is not going to touch it so you know later on you can take it back to the pharmacy for your second shot because apparently maybe you might need it for an update or a booster. That may be needed down the road. We don't know yet and but she says apparently if the card is laminated that they would have to reissue the cards. that might screwing up. say you. can you just cut it out of the. I don't know if something's limited. I've never had things laminated undone. Does it like destroy the. It's hard board little car yet. Like almost impossible. Why they have to give you a new one. So she's basically saying if there's a booster in the future that they have to be able to get to your card right. I mean when i went to public stay printed it out right there. Like carrots was attached to my paperwork. Yeah i saw. This is relevant to me too. 'cause i didn't get to tell you guys yesterday when i was Skimming the system gaming gaming gaming. The system was able to make vaccine appointment. That's good okay. What are you going. Thursday thursday afternoon okay over public's by me so that means. Vj will be here. Friday and in be scamming the system again. I got to work from home. Oh i'll feel good my arm off. He'll be taking a look. I died. I came back to life but i still feel i died on friday. Get better or recover. No problems whatsoever with the vaccine. I just think it's a personal choice. I totally get that. Worry me with this booster talk. 'cause you know damn well that falke and his ilk would love to say and this ties into the vaccine. Passport deal right. We're researching your vaccine passport record. It appears you don't have the third booster for the seventeenth variant. You are hereby in to blah blah blah this address and get this before you can function as a citizen. Yeah i don't like this idea of this whole booster thing forever and all you may be happening but wouldn't a second. This is the second shot considered a booster. It is yes actually. That's a good point for pfizer and four dirna. They're both considered a booster because they say anyway. That's the first shot covers you. Seventy to eighty percent on second one makes it ninety percent right so yeah the second one is kind of stamps it so i don't even know why you would need a booster of the second one is going to be a booster but again they don't they don't know yet something like that probably wouldn't be known until the fall or toward the end of the year deal. No better than i am. Maybe bill remembers my kids so old. But i remember my kids had to get a booster for something yes. I don't know if it was for the mumps or the measles or something isn't it. A measles booster there. They get a booster like when their ten or twelve or something like that. We're a teenager but it's like ten years after you got right. Yeah so maybe. I don't know maybe it's something like that like every five years you get a booster. I don't. I don't know. I hopefully not a tetanus shot last ten years now for yes come on well. It comes down to vaccine passports. It's coming down to the states. And i think we knew this was where we're going. And there was mississippi. I florida's against it and now texas following our lead. Seems like we're going back and forth worth texas and florida following us governor greg. Abbott announced an executive order that bans the creation of vaccine passports. Here's what he says. The government should require any texan to show proof of vaccination and reveal private health information just to go about their daily lives. Here's the thing is the long-term term concern like we were talking about with the booster. They've got a record by the way is maybe a little too deep. It's the first step to a social credit system. It just is. You got everything down here. Get what you got a link to this. I don't like it so true. Yeah it it's very. It's kinda like the disney Little armband there. They got everything in your life that you've done a disney on that little arm band so but that's for entertainment purposes but you're right. I mean when you go to get your shot when you ever ever do it like when i went to public they knew you know when i was where i i will die was where i live my phone number. They had all this information about me. I was like. Where'd you get that from right now. it's on a it could potentially be an issued license for you to function in society and that's bad it's a they can find anything want now they can find any picture of any security cam they want. Now we get it not organized. This would be right here. He said and ted is what's going on in texas as i have said all along. These vaccines are always voluntary. And never forced he. Sounds just like our governor. Little bit gironde descent to said almost the same exact thing. I was curious about this to this. Came out with this. He says he said today. They've got thirteen million people vaccinated in texas. Wow that's or are you know what that's kind of deceptive administered. Thirteen million vaccines. That may be the one in the two k. Right but that's a lot that's still a lot of huge state. Now look at us. I think most of the or down eighteen years old. Yeah do you. I don't know any young kids who signed up for it by the way i mean. I don't know if your daughter had to get it at school. Well she's looking into it for next fall semester and also for jobs this summer but then i got one younger ones a dancer so to go to her intensive the summer might have to get shot. Okay and that's going to be you know what you you you not forced by the government to get it or it's a personal choice yet. If you wanna go on a cruise you have the vaccine or if you want to get on a plane or i want to go to a sporting event so inevitably you will be forced to get this shot whether you want it or not just so you can enjoy life's entertainment just the function to function. And that's fine. I get that. Don't force me to what happens. I have a choice to stay inside my house. All day like a hermit to not get vaccinated but at least i have a choice but what happens come say may june when everybody should be vaccinated with the second shot and somebody says you know we expect you to a mask. And you're going. I got a vaccine you vaccine. Why do i have to wear a mask. There's going to be masked fights you know it's coming that's coming and they're having early yup because there's going to be somebody that's you know like me. No one no up. Sorry vaccinated and i refuse to show you proof. Yeah i'm selling graham. It's freedom it's in. That's what's going to happen now. They have other people that aren't vaccinated. Not wearing a mask when they supposedly are told to when they are going to lie about it. So it's it's it's it's a catch twenty two. They've created all kinds of conflict for the future. Well fortunately look at the present. Look what's happening on flights. Now we've had a lot of stories. Were it's absolutely the passengers vault right. Oh please this poor woman with these kids with the whole family but this this this was a flight attendant getting a little over zealous tyrant with a little bit of power spirit airlines and the defending the decision. But there's no word yet on this particular flight attendant you'll hear here. It's a family from orlando. They're going to atlantic city. The whole plane had to be deplaned like everybody had to get off. Here's here's the difference. The video that's going. Viral has the complete star of the confrontation. Usually it picks up in the middle and the airline compla- he said she said this has the beginning and all the passengers defending the families and they don't do anything wrong. It's a little kid you've got gotta come on. You've got one kid and then a two year old who happens to have a mask down not on. Because she's eating she sitting on her pregnant mothers lab. Rest of the family has masks on the child's causing no trouble whatsoever in the flight attendant. Does this kicking off to as the dead. No what no problem. Just tell us what we did and and you know what it's a little kid in. How many times do i. i was in public s- the other day and some little kid and maybe two years old was running around without a mask on and some older woman behind me when that child doesn't have a mask on i turn around and throw. It doesn't need one good for you. Too kid leave her alone again. My come on his. Were all the confrontations. Happen at jen's pulp is confrontation. You walk in there swinging doors and you hear ching yes. That's me with my spurs on square. Every time you thought spirit airlines was bad. Wait till you go to jen's public.

I swear anyway. Here's the result so apparently they left the flight attendant behind when they eventually two hours later went on and went on to atlantic city. Well good. I'm glad the family one because they weren't wrong and i'm glad spirit airlines finally found somebody some common sense. Sounds like the whole you know itinerary here. The whole passenger list defended the family. Oh good good. I just can't as any. You wonder why i don't fly. No i know frapp like that. It's not fun anymore. It's not well and just think all these people who are going to atlantic city and and maybe it was a connecting flight. Or maybe they had a be somewhere. Maybe they're on their way to a wedding or something else that was time restricted and they had to wait three extra of de planning and getting back on because of this flight attendant.

Yeah for china said a major country. Just pull out. And it's not us but will we because georgia's got racist voting laws apparently but china actually has human slave labor.

Well look at this undefeated team. You know the two thousand seven or hey the chiefs. They went back to back super bowls that year. That dog all the way wire-to-wire twenty-one through sports history is completely different. this is mind blowing. It said thing it just is never thought about it. that way. you're right yeah finally. It's an alternate sports. Universe at is who but who eats the cost of printing up.

I knew nothing about any of this. It's nice to see that. They're back on top and i went. Wow okay wait up. Pull them down. They actually did have a lot of controversy didn't they. or is it. The football program said they said it was i. He made reference to the fact that it was the basketball program. What was the bail wasn't art. Was it it was our brawls. Yeah on the football team. But think wow. That's right they i think they penalized the pro- the whole sports what happened. There was some allegations of sexual assault. Some of the players. I remember that kind of he looked the other way so to speak and he got in trouble prize old time cultural poll coach and ways to recruit. Not there anymore. Obviously but on the the men's bail the basketball team is never good. Which is why this is the first national title. The women's team has been great for years but the men's team is never good so it's cool. It's cool to see them win. This is the first time they want us to one thousand nine hundred seventy saito ever our. Yeah they've never won before tremendous accomplished. Yeah even beat my zags westwood. One radio call. Eljay criers won't go. Rebound what's gen. A steel a steel matter patterson the brakes on and dribble this one out. Wait a minute what's wrong with this.

He thought of that before the course air down. I can't wait to use bear down win. He had written down. What what do you say. If it was the gonzaga zags the bulldogs. Well the bulldogs biting down. Then you can go with the perfect season angles but yeah again unless you got the free shirt over in a foreign country. You didn't see that happen. Is something in college basketball. You wouldn't think maybe it happens more often. They've had a perfect season since one thousand nine hundred seventy three talking about nineteen seventy six. Indiana with bob knight. That was the last. Yeah and then one thousand nine hundred ninety nine indiana state with larry bird larry. They lost in the final. They were like they went into the final perfect. Lost admit magic. Johnson in michigan state. Larry bird went to indiana state. Because he didn't really care for bob knight. Is that really. Yeah wow we like him. I remember bobby knights infamous game. Yeah great coach. Though things went flying across court shares rose was like i was surprised. They kept him around because he won. He's a winner. That's right that's why it's so true. All right let's get out of here. We've got More mail to talk about. I do have another one actually again in the mailbox. Come on very dangerous. Dangerous this one. This one is a little dangerous mounts. Usually hate mail and it's usually toward me. I'm in the mood today. You'll find out feisty in baseball major league. Baseball is stupid being talk about how they are coming up next morning show is a bill. Keep it here. News newstalk eight fifty w. fdic florida morning. Show this jim. This diener bill cairns get more news Coming up along the way here. A little while I i don't know what the heck baseball is thinking. I don't even know if it's gonna even sort of flashback on them but this whole thing but boy getting criticized left and right they should You know if i lived in atlanta. And i had a struggling business or even worse if i lost my business and maybe i'm helping out a friend who's almost gonna lose his or her business and i knew the all star game common. I'm taking a one hundred million dollars being dumped an aura. Konami this is going to be great. Save my little sandwich shop in my little diner. Miami pizza place whatever. The case may be ripped right out from underneath the by stacey. Abrams and her woke politics. Hundred million dollars wow. So where's the money. So every baseball hasn't confirmed but it's going the all star game is going to denver colorado okay. A state by the way which has more stringent voting laws and restrictions than georgia does with their new ones. Did you think major league baseball actually looked at that before they decided to go. What's the name of the field. It's a beer course. Field course okay. Yeah okay so explain that to everybody in atlanta that just lost out on that little little pot of one hundred million dollars livid i think they put all the blue states and a hat they shook it up and they blindly put a hand in and they picked one out and it turned out to be colorado very well. Been because i know chucky schumer was out there You know cheerleading for new york. Yeah like forget it chucky back on shut up go back. Go back to remember the arm inch with your buddy injury. Colorado's got fifteen days of early voting. Georgia has seventeen okay No excuse vote by mail. is in both states. So that's comparable okay. Colorado's closed on sunday for early voting. Okay so i work six days a week and rightly day. I have office sunday. So okay right thanks. Thanks for letting me have access folks. So what was this all about what we know. The answer was all politics but still what a joke and isn't absolutely. I think The marco rubio letter was the most. Yes surprising out of all of this. And i i didn't. I knew he wrote a letter. But i didn't realize what the letter said but just that one little article about one little line about what the baseball commissioner where he belongs and it's surprising to even come out like this swinging which is rare for him good for him part of the letter from the senate his senate office says i'm no i am under no illusion. You intend to resign is a member of augusta national golf club. Nice move sending this to the major league baseball. Commissioner rob manfred okay. So we all know how augusta runs the world. They don't change anything for anybody other than their own personal beings at augusta national to do so would require a personal sacrifice and he's right the woke corporate signaling of moving the all star game from atlanta and also makes me think the baseball commissioner comes from a great deal of money. I don't know any probably remember gusta right. I mean personally. I don't know anybody. But everybody. I do see that tells me that's been there. They got a lot of money if they belong to augusta. They're filthy rich and they are history families. Just what hypocritical clown i mean. Honestly i truly don't think he the commissioner any of the team owners any of these woke corporate sponsors on the boards of directors. They actually believe it was the right thing to move out of atlanta right. They didn't want to look bad. They're so afraid of the woke outrage mob so afraid of them from what i understand stacey abrams in a deer road atlanta is catching a lot of feedback from hundreds of business owners who she screwed out of one hundred million dollars. I bet basically i bet and what. They should run around town for doing that to them. How dare you you know this would be my like my last bastion of hope to save my business or save my company to save my house or to be able to pay the ran or actually having and you just took it all away from me. Thank you stacey. Really appreciate it. I hope it backfires on him to wake up and realize what this. These woke politicians duty. What they do. And what these corporations do. They're no friend now by the way somebody put up with. Somebody came up with the list of people that An ad united to this list by the way united airlines now criticizing georgia's newly strengthened election. Laws you know to cut down on election fraud. Every one of these companies that set it because they're international corporations as ties. China is trying to build. China drill a massive audience. Every one of them. How do you like that so when you when you hear the influence in this country. That's how it's done. Yes sometimes through politicians. It's done through corporations. This is why you have organizations like remember the nba right. Don't you dare criticize china in national beijing. What do you call the national. Beijing asus at its them. And they're talking peace lebron james yet remember. He didn't he didn't have to change his tune wasn't he. The one that came out and said something bad about china and then like twenty four hours later up. Recant love them. Well you know because they have a. They have a massive potential. Tv audience in china. They're trying to. They're trying to kowtow to them crazy craziness and have it now. You can't do it and they keep putting up with this. We do regular hardworking americans. Because it's well we go along we get along and we were no complaint society. It's gotta stop. You've got to fight these people. It's about time somebody starts fighting. What it it's was nice to see our own governor fight back against the false narrative that sixty minutes try to portray now being called six minutes. It's horrible what they did to that man. They literally left out three minutes of his interview that explained the whole public situation. It wasn't pay for play and even publix came out and added a comment even dave kerner the democratic good for him mayor of the palm beach county commissioners good for him is right because a lot of guts. They lied downright lion. So i it's nice to see somebody's finally standing up an extra special. Thank you to dave kerner. Being from the other side it was right. He told the truth. You don't want to tell the truth especially down here. You're not kidding not kidding cheese. Absolutely right wow okay. I got a question for you and tell me the truth.

You are in boston this week and then in the boston globe and then yesterday in the new york times and that moral condemnation is completely understandable but i for one am going to leave that out of of what i have to say about this story because we are presenting this story again tonight with an objective the goal here is to inform you of the news of what your government is doing but possibly even more importantly in this particular instance the goal here is to save a life and the people who have the power to intervene and save this life will not hear the plea for her life if it is hurled up them wrapped in moral outrage the government government officials who can change this death sentence in the coming days cannot be condemned into changing their policy but they might be persuaded is waded to change their policy. If we keep telling them the story of maria isabel buesa she came to this country when she was seven years old at the the invitation and request of my first guest tonight dr paul harm that's who told isabelle's story to rachel mental last night talk to harm that's needed patients nations to conduct clinical trials for rare disease and he could not find enough patients for this rare disease study in the united states. There's the full formal name of the disease on the screen right now the professional shorthand for it is six it causes spinal cord compression and and other growth abnormalities and dr harman's convinced isabelle's parents to bring her to the united states to help medical research to help other children who would be born with her condition. Isabelle is now twenty four years old. She has been participating in medical studies throughout her life in the united states for dr credits her with helping him and his research team make dramatic breakthroughs that have helped people with her disease live longer patients with her disease used to live. You've just a bit beyond the age of twenty now with isabelle's lifelong participation in these studies patients can now live longer than thirty ears. Isabel graduated from college cum laude last year two weeks ago. She received a letter saying that if she doesn't leave the country within the next thirty three days she's she will be deported in every day between now and her deportation order. We are going to try to find a way to persuade the people in the trump administration ministration who are who are doing this doing this to this patient to change their minds because this is what isabelle's instructor told rachel last night. You're really ending her death sentence. It's as if we're pulling the plug on a respirator or earth stopping feedings for a patient that needs that type of support. I think it's fair to assume that no one in the trump administration who participated disappointed in this change of policy decision has ever heard of the disease that isabel struggles with i certainly have never heard of it and the disease that isabel has has helped find medical breakthroughs for treatment they could not have known that they were sentencing isabel personally to death with that letter but after this week's news his coverage of the story many of them do know now we have to try to make sure that they all know in the hope that somewhere we will find a sympathetic ear connected connected to an open heart someone who can begin to turn this decision around in the days that are left before isabel is scheduled to be deported to her her death. The politics politics of governing is far more complex than the politics of campaigning in the politics of campaigning. You are just trying to beat the other side auden and the politics of governing. You're trying to persuade the other side and in your own lives. You all know that the tone in vocabulary that you adopt for persuasion is very different from the tone that you bring to open argument if isabel is deported to her death. If the day comes that we must report at this hour that she has died in guatemala because she was deported and denied medical treatment to help keep her alive there will be moral outrage there will be condemnation but as long as there is a chance chance to save her life we are going to work on this story the way i worked on legislation in the united states senate when i was a democratic staff member trying to persuade wade senators on the other side to change their minds so we're going to frame our coverage of this story in optimism. Our coverage of this story will be based on the hope that someone will persuade the trump administration that isabel should be rewarded for what she has done in. This country rewarded for what she has done for medical research rewarded for the live. She has saved with her participation. In medical research lives she has improved and lengthened lengthened because of her participation in medical research. We hope that someone will persuade the trump administration to reward maria isabel with her life and no one is more persuasive in telling us about story than the medical hero who has kept her alive longer than anyone thought possible when she was a little girl guatemala and longer than anyone thought possible when she arrived in california at age seven and so it is my honor to begin our discussion and tonight with that medical hero dr paul hart matt's who joins us now doctor. Thank you very much for joining us again tonight. I know your schedule is difficult recalled but it is important to you so joining rachel last night joining me tonight i think at this stage possibly the most help that you can bring to your patients so so thank you very much for joining us. Thank you lawrence. It's it's really been a whirlwind two or three days and we're beginning to to see some hope and their responses that we're getting on the internet by phone calls by people i you know parents have patients with rare diseases similar diseases that i take care of that are asking how they can help and and <hes> people calling we don't know that are just giving suggestions and leaving messages and i think it's really beginning to move move people that this is a crisis and it's a crisis not just for isabel but for all of these very rare disease patients that are being asked asked to leave the country so i also i. I'm not a hero. I i am a pediatrician. I followed followed some great scientists with these studies and <hes> really wanna give them credit. It was the perfect time to bring a unique therapy we can mention aimal cactus was one of the inventors of this therapy and the when it was first brought to the human for n._p._s. One and he helped move this forward for six which was the second disease that was <hes> had uh therapy developed in this group so it's it was a tremendous breakthrough to be able to give these patients back the missing enzyme and it was say a breakthrough of new science genetics <hes> all of the ability to to do gene therapy he within cells and make this protein that we can infuse each week and the future is open. I mean that's the amazing thing is that isabel. All is is healthy and bright and vigorous and we're within a few years of being able to to do gene therapy trials ulcer ongoing in in italy for gene therapy for n._p._s. Six and we just need a few more years to bring this therapy to isabel says she he doesn't need these infusions weekly that she can make her own enzyme and <hes> you know it would be <hes> it'll be unbelievable available tragedy if if she's taken offense i men and is not able to reach this <hes> permanent solution. I i have to believe that. Isabel is more than just a patient to you. After almost twenty years now of treatment and working together she's been a contributor <hes> to your research and unsure one of the real friends important friends in your life she is. It's a it's a small community there. We only have fifty to one hundred patients in the u._s. <hes> i know most of the patients with n._p._s. Six over the having worked with this disease for twenty years and i travel around the world and and try to to meet as many patients as i can and they they're they support each other they they know each other especially the young adults that have grown up with the disease and now have hoped that they can <hes> lead reasonably as long and productive lives and you know it's this is really hitting the entire community and <hes> and it it takes the wind out of them to think that that this unique therapy that's keeping them alive as being <hes> pulled away from somebody that is doing well with it so you know anything that we're doing on with media and with congressional help and <hes> will potentially can break through this barrier and keep the therapy going doctor. If you had a minute with president trump. What would you tell them about isabel. I would say that she's a delightful vigorous productive person. She's you know she loves was to dance. She has many friends. She's always thinking about how she can help other people she she actually can even in highschool was organizing organizing rare disease day to help <hes> educate her friends and schoolmates about rare diseases. She spent time in every year she travels to washington to participate in <hes> congressional meetings on rare disease day <hes> lobbying congressman educating educating their offices. She's she really is a you. Know engage person. I think that's the way to say it and she she will produce many <hes> positive benefits that we hope all of our children are able to do when they grow up and become adults and this this would be a tragedy to take this <hes> opportunity to to live in contributed away from her talk to paul hormats. Thank you very much for making time to join us tonight. We really appreciate it. Thank you lawrence. Thank you and we turn now to the politics of governing the politics of persuasion and what it might take to convince the trump administration to save isabelle's lives joining us. Now is maria at your best. She's a former deputy chief of staff to president clinton and lecture at the university of california berkeley school of law. Thank you very much for joining us tonight. You've worked in a in a presidential administration. <hes> you know the way the thinking works you know the way persuasion works <hes> what would what would you suggest as as a approach to try to persuade the trump administration <hes> to pull back on what is a death sentence. I think the first thing to focus on is to understand what what is motivating this administration to try to figure out how to persuade them and unfortunately every step that this jason ministration has taken on immigration is really rooted in what i believe is an effort to take discretion out of the system because that's what this new rule is to just summarily say you've been here. We were no longer accepting as a reason for you to be able to stay here that you are having critical essential medical treatment it take that discretion and to basically thickly lose the humanity highly humanity of immigrants so i'm sort of at a loss frankly lawrence to say how would i persuade this administration to to withdraw this draconian view of of immigrants as sort of not human that they don't have stories in there individuals and that immigration authorities ought to be able to look at the context of each particular particular case and determine in this case of isabel. This is a case of life and death as you heard from dr hearts to expel her from this country to deport her from this country is frankly an act of murder because she can't get the treatment water mollahs so how would i swayed this administration administration somewhere. We've got to find a way to appeal to thank you. There must be some humanity in them somewhere. Don't you think i do you and that's exactly the perspective from which i'm covering the story and i and i hope that it can reach people who have access to the president <hes> whether they are in government or out of government <hes> to make this case. This is a president who reportedly at the time reportedly at the time was moved by photographs of a child in syria who was a victim of of what was happening there. He was moved to missile strikes. According to the white house reports on this <hes> his daughter presented him with these photographs and so if there's any truth to that if there's just a sliver of truth to that it seems to me that somewhere in that area is a space ace where something like this could could break through. I want to read you from the letter. The basically the deportation letter that was sent to isabel because we now have a copy copy of it and it says it was dated august thirteenth and giving her thirty three days from august thirteenth and it says if you fail to depart the united states within thirty three days as of the date of this letter we may issue a notice to appear in commence removal proceedings against you with the immigration court so thirty three days from august thirteenth is september fifteenth so on september fifteenth they may commence send her a notice to appear to commence removal proceedings do. Do you have any estimate of if she gets one of those notices to appear. Will it be appear with in within a week appear within in two weeks what kind of timetable now they will. They will set a date and she will need to appear and and and let's be clear there will be some time but we also know from other efforts within the administration to speed up those processes right to to not give people the time to really prepare their case but i want to say in a case he's like this where your health and mental wellbeing is part of your ability to survive and matching the stress and the damage that can happen to this this young woman so it is very likely that you'll be several weeks perhaps a month too but the important thing is no one should with this kind of condition where leaning the country would be a death sentence. Why does she have to go through this and why should others others not be able to present their case in a way that doesn't make them feel like their life is on the line which is literally what is going on in this case. I i do want to say one thing. Maybe when you think about persuasion stephen miller is as we all know the if not the architect act of immigration policy pretty close to it. What would it take to persuade him to think of human beans when he's coming up with these policies that these are lives and families and individuals human beings with as much right to dignity <music> as he has himself well. I think the way the a lot of these policies have been developed. It's entirely possible that the president himself knew nothing about this. This decision was made knew nothing about these letters going out and i actually in this case hope that is true so that the knowledge of it might be something that he can choose choose to reverse the more we get attention to this reactor day. Thank you very much for joining us on this subject tonight. We really appreciate it. Thank you great to be with you to an and after this break coming up. We've just had a week of terrible polls from donald trump's reelection prospects political scientist breach obita copper is back with us tonight after this week's polls added even more spur support to her electoral college model that now shows the democrat whoever that uh-huh credits nominee turns out to be winning the electoral college with at least two hundred seventy eight electoral college votes hi. It's katie wanna keep up with m._s._n._b._c. While you're on the go subscribe to the m._s._n._b._c. daily newsletter. You'll get the best of what you've missed. During this unprecedented sedated era of news text m._s._n._b._c. two six six eight six six to subscribe enough of the return of our second favourite rachel joel this week delivered another round of very bad polls donald trump's reelection prospects especially when a poll that showed donald trump losing in one on one match ups with the top five democratic presidential presidential candidates and losing to the top four of those candidates by double digit margins quinnipiac poll show joe biden fifty four percent against donald trump's thirty eight bernie sanders just ahead of trump fifty three thirty nine with warren head of trump fifty to forty kandla harris ahead of trump fifty one forty people to judge head of trump forty nine forty in the quinnipiac poll and so as of tonight the latest polling supports political scientist rachel bitta coffers election modeling showing that whoever the democrats nominate for president will beat donald trump trump in the electoral college rachel pittock offer is using the same election modeling that allowed her to predict the big blue wave of twenty eighteen long before most people saw that coming joining us now is political science professor rachel offer with the watson center for public policy at christopher newport university in newport news virginia and rachel. It's really great to have you here. This is your third round here here on the last word and i actually want it once again. Start from the beginning and step through this analysis and there's a lot of emotional reaction to this kind of talk nedal because i think there's such a shocked electorate especially the democratic side the donald trump one before and i believe that there is an exaggerated notion of donald trump as some kind of superman politically including in the media of which were overreacted to donald trump squeaking out the electoral college and i have not given up looking at polling information in the traditional way right and all of the polling information on donald trump is disastrous and always has been in terms of re election since inauguration day <hes> you look at that but you go way beyond that and so so talk us through how you get to the point where tonight you can say. You're sure that you can either say the democrat will get to seventy eight or more possibly put better way. Donald trump will lose two hundred seventy electoral votes to the democrat whoever that is yeah and it really is important go back to that night in november in two thousand sixteen and think about how the mood of the electorate was and there was just such a sense right now. We have this invincibility instability complex for trump. He's basically the terminator. You can't kill him. Nothing will stick to him and back then everybody believed the opposite. There was no way he would be president. I mean nobody entertained seriously that they were going to wake up on wednesday morning to president trump and that attitude attitude he'd really set the tone i think for the entire debate between trump and clinton it really fired up a lot of the division within the democratic caucus between bernie democrats crats and hillary supporters and this assumption certainly by owed by the the forecasting models and the polling particularly in those crucial crucial swing states wisconsin and michigan that just never showed him in contention that that gave people a sense of security that they did not need you just show up with ferocity and we are talking about a whole different ballgame nickel so stage one mood electric is actually different in two thousand twenty from twenty sixteen. There was a certain amount of over confidence that hillary clinton would win which meant a lower turnout on the democratic side. There are voters. Yes you are sure who if they were told. If you don't vote tomorrow donald trump will win. They would have gone to the polls but didn't so so that turnout will show up in two thousand twenty absolutely other thing. That's in your analysis. That's relevant to that. Especially in those swing states that you just mentioned is the third party vote for jill stein for example in in some of those states made the difference in the electoral college for those states <hes> who and you insist that won't happen again that that vote will not go to third party. Yeah we'll see some third party balloting and i think the arizona senate race last year is a great example where even after the green party candidate withdrew and tried to beg their supporters who's not to protest ballot. Two percent did go there and it didn't ended up being decisive. The christian samana still pulled out a victory there so i'm thinking probably around two percent of the national dome for me yes but we're talking about in two thousand sixteen. I rose me extraordinarily high. I mean i mean the story. In two thousand sixteen is not about the white working class who had been involved in a long term realignment away from the democrats and really less time. They got excited about a democrat. It was bill clinton a white southern gentlemen from arkansas you. The story of two thousand sixteen is is much more about who did not vote and who showed up and voted a protest ballot than it is about the white working class voters who really just did what they have been doing for a long time and so it's trending republican the simple list stage of this analysis actually and there's more to it what you were going to get to is. All you have to do is reduce the third party voting from two thousand sixteen <hes> on this on the the green party side of third party voting and donald trump loses. That's all you have to do. You could do just that one tweak in those critical states aids and keeping much has the same problem. We don't talk about it a lot but the same problem down there occurred. I mean we're talking about all of these states being decided by less than one one percent. Donald trump did not win a majority in any of the states he carried them with a plurality of the vote because of the five six percent that was siphoned often third party voters so absolutely that is enough they are but then when we factor in the turnout among millennials and african american voters and latinos does i mean that's just a quadrant. I guess you'd call that a quadruple factor of dino democratic malaise that we are not going to see one hundred percent and no matter how bad democrats might be at turning out voters. There's this natural passion now. It's like kerosene on this demographic tsunami. That's been laying there just waiting to vote so you i saw this new turnout phenomenon developing in the state of virginia and their statewide election their state elections elections in two thousand seventeen you then morning from that apply to the house races and that's what gave you the essence of your prediction was. There's going to be turnout in these two thousand eighteen house races that will deliver these seats to democrats that's going to be extremely energized <hes> and and all of orange county honey congressional seats conflict from republican to democrat because of this energy you and you're using that model now on the presidential election and you're saying and in addition to this third party vote which will be different in in this next election there will be this energized turnout on the the democratic side but you also say it'll be energized. Turn out for donald trump. These are these are going to compete. That's exactly right and that was the one surprising feature of two thousand eighteen and i'll come back to that in a second but i really wanna hammer appoint home. This is the point to the <hes> democratic. Enthusiasm has to have the conditions for her so when we look at these forty districts that identified with my model they all share certain factors their suburban. There's a high rate of college education in them. <hes> a a decent rate of diversity in terms of the racial and ethnic diversity of the district those were places that i could look at and say this is going to see a huge turnout surge and that's why even though the polling haven't caught up in orange county on july first and the house ratings were lean republican toss up and the other raiders. I knew you for sure they were going to flip and even after election night when you know if you remember those districts they took along. I was not in panic at all. All i sat there for five days and i just listened to a podcast with katie porter where she was worried that she might not win ultimately and i was it's like oh. I wish katie had seen my analysis. You would have felt so much because it was just a mathematical certainty that if you have a passionate turnout they catalyst you're going to see that and but you know with the republicans. I expected to see republicans vote. They're just they're easier to vote in terms of their demographics graphics and also the republican party is just strategically superior to the democrats on how to get people to vote but i didn't expect to see them maintain their turnout advantage and in every district that analyse forthcoming analysis. I'll show that even the democratic turnouts are just bigger and it was a massive surge surge they still underperformed the turnout of republican and so you've applied this to the electoral college map and you're looking at the district's the the basically the areas within the electoral for college map <hes> that say <hes> there's a lot of college educated voters are this is the kind of voter profile <hes> that you say will turn out in surprisingly rising big numbers in shorthand. That's how you're getting two to seventy. That's exactly right so i'm looking. I mean you know instead of a district. I'm looking at statewide factors awesome looking at you know urban populations because that's one advantage democrats have in there are disadvantages to electoral college system certainly but every restate has urban centers some states have more than others and every urban center has suburban populations and so case in point texas texas is ground zero of the twenty twenty recycle democrats left several texas how seats on the table in two thousand eighteen because they're not thinking about them in terms of these my model the way identify identify competition and now i think they're starting to recognize. Oh the suburbs of dallas i mean not only are they potential pickups for the house house. Those are the places that have democrats want to make a serious play the texas senate or serious play at flipping that in the electoral college which by the way would knock the presidency for the long term of the republicans agenda. That's where it would happen in the suburbs of dallas and houston in major urban areas refers original rachel for our second favourite rates. Thank you very for joining us tonight. We're gonna have to have you back a lot to keep us posted on this coming off. The woman who wrote wrote the book on the politics of trump is joy reed will join us and we'll see what your rethinks original coffers electoral college prediction. That's next here's joe biden on jonathan kaye parts podcast in effect echoing rachel bitta coffers modeling for the presidential election election when the certian is made that will the reason the only person that can beat trump is quote an old white guy <hes> i. I just think that i mean i think there's other people in the race who can be trump who <hes> well. I i i think almost anybody it all make a better president trump on a matter who's left in the race. Jury is is generously doing double duty for us tonight by hosting rachel maddow's show and then returning to join us here at the last word. Joy is an m._s._n._b._c. national correspondent. He's just choose the host of joy and i'm listen b._c. And the author of the man who sold america trump and the unraveling of the american story and joy it says right here on the back of your book it delivers is a compelling account of how we got trumpism and what will happen next so with that far in as great authority by this get what what's your take on what you're hearing from rachel. She says she can count tonight. Yeah two hundred seventy electoral votes for the democratic presidential nominee whoever it is and i'm going to bring our conversation off air on air that i did say to you that when when she tweeted someone tweeted to me her analysis that i read the same day that you i had on the show and then i walked her on the show and it was sort of a wakeup call for me as well and you know i've been on both sides of this business covering and also working on campaigns and i can tell you that in the last month of the two thousand four election which was the first presidential campaign. Hey i worked on in my deep inside. I knew that the democrat was gonna lose. There were things about the race that you knew and one and she wrote down for wrote down the four. The things i think are the key. The mood of the electric which side is hungry. The hungry or constituency always wins. The overconfidence democrats had in two thousand sixteen myself. The data said hillary clinton's gonna win. A lot of analysis was around that overconfidence the fact that is not the white working class. That is the pit. They are already republicans. I've done. I believe that for for a long time i think democrats obsessed with him too much and the fact that it is diverse suburban college educated districts that are the ones that delivered the angry result in two thousand eighteen it could again. I think that she's right in the sense that first thing the mood the hungry constituency after eight years of barack obama. We're white americans who are angry about racial change. They were arain raged. They were motivated. Hillary clinton's voters were not motivated. African american turnout for instance fell under sixty percent that is a sure loser for democrats so i think since the democrats are angrier and hungrier and the far-right is sated by donald trump's cruelty toward immigrants. I think she's right and there's a simple piece of mathematics thematic. That's right in the center of your analysis. Which is the third party voting gave donald trump the election and people vote third party when they think they got fran not going to tilt it yep and she doesn't believe you're going to see a third party. Vote that gives wisconsin to donald trump's right and so if you think about the way that the democrats and democratic leaning independence were thinking about two thousand sixteen the assumption was hilary's gonna win anyway so that if you had some objection to her whatever over your objection was that she spoke at a corporate function at some point. You could say you know what i'm going to vote for jill stein because i don't like her ethics on speeches because you figure she's gonna win anyway but differences to me no with that now everyone who in any way is disturbed by donald trump but most of the country is shocked appalled and terrified wants him gone on the other side though when you think about the ways his base is they are in one of two camps. They either are loving donald trump. I think he's rape but they're seated. They don't need to come out as much the other side does or they're wondering what the heck my farm is going down the tubes so i do think that the anger and the outrage is on the side of the democrat and the idea that people are going to willy nilly really both their party. I don't see that happening. I am just so glad that we have found a new source of analysis about this. I discovered rachel offer. I read about her read. An article and immediately said let's get her on the show yeah and she's really as changed my thinking. She's expanded. You're absolutely joy reed. Thank you very much for time to listen. This is fun for me. This is actually sean. I love this. Thank you very much. Thank you ruby when we come back on monday. The world was shocked once again. When donald trump blamed russia's illegal annexation of crimea from ukraine on president obama instead of putin tonight russian forces are once again acting aggressively toward a neighboring country toward georgia georgia who will donald trump blame now that's next when he was the republican nominee for president in two thousand eight john mccain said today were all georgians amplifying the international outrage at russia's aggression against the neighboring country of georgia that aggression has taken a new and dangerous turn this week according to the state department. The united states is monitoring reports of military. You build up near the administrative boundary line of the russian occupied georgian region of south ossetia. Georgian officials are now warning about the risk of a new serious confrontation in that region military forces in the russian-backed south-ossetia region are lining up along that regions border order to demand georgian forces remove a checkpoint that separates the region from the rest of georgia. The move comes just days. After president trump trump absolved russian president vladimir putin for the shocking acts of russian aggression that took place in russia invaded and next crimea in two thousand fourteen donald trump blamed that not on vladimir putin but on president obama so who is to blame for russia's aggression tonight in in georgia and what should the president the united states be doing about it rush expert evelyn farkas is back with us and we'll join us after this break sir tonight as we approach yet another international crisis created by vladimir putin we are joined by vargas a senior fellow at the german marshall fund and a former deputy assistant secretary of defense for russia ukraine and eurasia. She is in m._s._n._b._c. national security analyst evelyn of troops for forming on the russian border area with georgia. We've seen this before right. This is ladder putin and showing the world and showing his neighbors in particular that he's still the man if you will that russia's still a great power and that russia has a lot of cards. It's also i think a a little bit of a finger in the face to the west so western europe the g seven our president you know saying hey i can still cause a lot a lot of trouble. Don't think about expanding nato georgia's still on the list. They still want to become a nato member and the original the original invasion of georgia. If you remember in two thousand eight came about because the georgians were offered a conditional membership by nato and actually george bush our president at the time was pushing it really hard it was georgia and ukraine it didn't come to pass because the russians invaded and they continue to occupy twenty percent of georgia's territory but this is a very dangerous situation and unfortunately unfortunately it's yet again i would say a g seven failure because they should have been talking about ukraine and georgia and all of the things that russia's doing wrong rather then even having to discuss the possibility of re re allowing re inviting russia into the g seven president trump had them basically wasting their time on a discussion and then putin to show his gratitude for how hard donald trump worked for him at the g seven trying to get them back in the group he does this. <hes> you mentioned mention <hes> the the first incursion into georgia listless what republican presidential candidate john mccain had to say about that then and just imagine what what has happened to republicanism since john mccain said this and we're donald trump is now. Let's listen to this. I know from speaking this morning to the president of georgia me shia shock feeley who i've known for many years that he knows that the thoughts the prayers and support of the american people are with that brave little nation as they struggle today for their freedom and an independence. I know ice week for every american when i say to him. Today we are all georgians. It's so hard to watch that with with john mccain gone and donald trump now in the place where john mccain wanted to be that britain for him not one word of that had to be put in his mind for that he was ready for that kind of how to deal with that kind of crisis. What should this president be doing now how well he should be ideally doing with john. Mccain did which is recognizing what russia is doing. This is not a democracy. This is a country. That's trying to reestablish spear of influence. It's trying to bully georgia. Of course there's also the situation in ukraine which we need to keep a very close eye on now. Maybe they've made some progress aggress but nevertheless i mean vladimir putin's agenda is all about creating a sphere of influence getting his way with the neighboring countries weakening them politically and so this is is again unfortunately john mccain understood. We have to fight against the boys. We have to fight against autocracy. The georgians establish a democracy that it was a really big deal deal and john mccain was actually there at the very beginning the heavily involved when most people didn't know there was a republic of georgia. We just thought that was the state of georgia and so he understood clearly what happened happen in two thousand eight. When we said georgia come into nato. We didn't realize that the russians would have the reaction that they would have now. We know that they'll use use military force to prevent sovereign countries from joining associations that their people want them to join. That should be unacceptable so the west needs to jump in right now lawrence. I mean our government should be leading the way to put an end to this aggression. We'll be washing over the weekend. We will probably have to hear from you next week about this ellen parkas. Thank you very much for joining us tonight tonight and when we come back we have breaking news. The newest forecast from the national hurricane center has just been released. Bill karen's has it he's ready. He will be with us next break news. The national hurricane center has just released its latest update on hurricane dorian. Let's goes goes right to n._b._c. Meteorologist bill cairns bill. What's the latest lawrence. It's coin flip. It's fifty fifty right now forever. You're gonna get a florida landfall. Yes today i would say maybe it was seventy. Five percent chance that this was heading into florida possibly a major hurricane so this is a great trend. We still have two to three days to go code. We could trend worse tomorrow but at least we liked the trend that we've seen in the last twelve to eighteen hours. Now you're saying you look behind me and you see this beast of a storm you see a huge is the rapid intensification. Today we knew all along that this had perfect conditions to become a major hurricane. Maybe a four maybe five. We know it's a four right now. But what we didn't know is where it would head. If we get a huge category for even a five it just stays out in the ocean. You know it's bad for the cruise lines or whatever else but that spares us a billion dollar weather disasters so that's what we're still hoping for and we still have a chance of that happening so here's the latest from the hurricane center category four hundred forty mph winds looks extremely impressive on satellite imagery but we are still five hundred forty five miles west of palm beach florida so we still have a ways to go for for a lot of changes with the pack so let me get you to the latest pat and forecast from the hurricane center yesterday at this time we had the storm coming in it just north of west palm beach up through central florida so we have slowed it down and shifted towards the coast and we tell you not to stare at the red line of course it's a bright red line is hard not to that's kind of the center path the cone of uncertainty is this area in white in here and notice we're now starting to take out extreme south florida and the keys from that so as we go closer to the storm getting towards florida or towards the bahamas were going to narrow this down start to eliminate some people from it to florida trend today was fantastic for miami and for the tampa fort myers the naples areas but still anywhere from about north of miami to west palm beach jupiter all towards palm bay melbourne aurigny air space coast all the way through flagler county volusia county. We still have to closely. Watch those areas. The hurricane center does now have it a category to up towards georgia georgia in south carolina lawrence so we're not done with this yet by far. It's going to be nervous weekend. We will still have massive accusations. We prepare for the worst but we still hope the distress off shore continues. We will be watching bill cairns. Thank you very much for joining us without important appreciate that is tonight's last word. The eleventh-hour with brian williams starts now. Hey it's chris as from m._s._n._b._c.

Morning Joe 8/27/20

"All Right Hurricane Laura barreled ashore near the Texas Louisiana border around two am eastern this morning as a powerful category four storm bringing with it extreme winds storm surge and flash flooding according to the National Hurricane Center the fast-moving hurricane exploded intensity yesterday and continued to gain strength into the night. It has been downgraded to a category three storm for now good morning and welcome to morning Joe. It's Thursday August twenty seventh we're going to get. To, the storm in just a moment, we'll also go live to Jonathan Lemaire out the White House for his latest reporting and fact check of nine, nine, three of the Republican. National Convention. It was hard to keep up with all the fact checking. Also, this morning, we're going to go live to Canossa Wisconsin where we are learning more detail surrounding the shooting of Jacob Blake. We'll get the very latest on the investigation and the continued protests floss. On the seventeen year old resident charged with homicide after shooting that took place during Wednesday night's violence there, and we will discuss the wave of boycotts and postponements across the professional sports world in protest of that police shooting a lot going on Willie. It is a busy morning. Let's bring in though NBC meteorologist Bill Cairns to start us off with Hurricane Laura Bill. At this time yesterday you said you woke up and shuddered at the size and the gathering strength of this storm it delivered as a category for a couple of hours ago has it looked right now? We just got the new update infant hurricane center and we're now. Call a major hurricane. It's down to category two. So quickly losing its punch, but still doing damage far inland and when it made landfall, it was the second strongest hurricane ever recorded in Louisiana's history I mean. So that's like serious stuff and when we see the wind damage that has occurred in areas like Lake Charles later today, it'll be eye opening on me and I just saw a picture of one of the TV stations there the local stations that TV and tower has collapsed in part of the skyline there. So let me take you through some of the concerns we still have with this storm. So right now the. I what's left of the? I can still see it clearly north of Lake Charles it's heading towards four pole. That's where we're still getting destruction. That's where we're still getting some damage to roofs to all of the trees and even Alexandria the winds are really kicking up pretty strong. Here's some of our current wind gusts Alexandria forty, nine notice. We still have gusts near the I near eighty, two miles per hour. That's enough to do some significant damage. Still, we have a little over half a million people without power that number will continue to grow as the storm heads up towards shreveport and the timing for Shreveport. The closest. To, you will be about one o'clock. This afternoon you'll be on the backside. So hopefully, the winds won't be too strong right now, we're predicting the winds in shreveport to be anywhere between fifty to seventy miles per hour, and then the storm holds together as a rain and wind event through the areas of the southern Ohio Valley in the mid Atlantic Watch out on Saturday Washington DC all the way through southern portions of New Jersey we could see some gusty winds in very rainy Saturday afternoon for you, and here's those peak wind gusts center anticipated for the rest of today about doses around seventy. Shreveport sixty five or so in Little Rock, the winds will be a little lighter that willy the one thing I didn't talk a lot about and it's still kind of the mystery is how bad was the storm surge? It happened in the middle of the night it happened in a very swampy unpopulated area. There's a chance we had this epic historic storm surge, but it just didn't happen in any populated areas it happened over the swamps. So I have not seen heard any reports of destruction from the storm surge yet, but we'll wait until sun up until the helicopters get up just to make sure. All right we'll take that early good news. Bill Cairns. We'll check back in with you later again now, hurricane a category two storm Bill. Thanks so much. Let's bring in NBC. News correspondent. Sam. brockie live in Beaumont Texas East Texas near the Louisiana Border San what are you seeing on the ground right now? It's really calmed down really good morning very good to be with you. There were strong wind gusts of fifty sixty miles an hour ago as recently as about an hour ago. But now the rain really comes and the people of Beaumont have to be breathing a sigh of relief I spoke with the mayor yesterday and what he told me was Russia's airport Arthur. Expecting billions of dollars worth of damage. That's just not what materialized. You're on the weeks out of the storm what we are seeing really right now, if you look over my shoulder tons of power outages and really there's always that arbitrary nature of storms who does and does not get hit this side of the street it's all dark up and down as far as. You can see this is interstate ten over my shoulder here obviously, a major thoroughfare no lighting in that direction, you go down a few blocks and you're seeing some places that have light but twenty two range say sixty to seventy thousand customers with no power right now that's a lot of people you multiply that by three or four by the household and you're talking. About a couple, hundred, thousand people with no electricity this morning. But if that's what we're talking about instead of loss of life, certainly a better situation there the evacuation process you wouldn't think of this as a huge metropolitan area but in Beaumont, there's fifty five thousand people I should say about one, hundred, eighteen, thousand people port Arthur collectively, they have two, hundred, thousand so. How'd you be evacuated and they were successfully for the most part we talked to a few people who said I'm staying behind to ride this thing out men did they get lucky because Port Arthur is only about a mile or two from the Gulf of Mexico that could have been bad instead in this age of Covid, they were able to orchestrate all kinds of. Buses and get folks either who are experiencing disabilities or perhaps didn't have the means otherwise to leave the area to get them out in time. There was a major storm right now on this weaker side Willy we're about sixty or seventy miles away from where this made landfall it's looking okay. So far in the light of day will be able to the damage further but. Sort of a better case scenario right now here in Beaumont willing. All right again again, it's early we wait for the sun to come up and we'll take these early reports of good news from Beaumont Texas NBC San Brock. Sam. Thanks so much Meka. Yeah throughout the morning as the sun comes up, we'll be checking in with city officials in the Gulf coast and getting complete updates as this story develops. Meanwhile, we're learning more detail surrounding the shooting of Jacob Blake. Wisconsin Department of Justice yesterday that a knife was found in the twenty nine year old black man's SUV. After the Sunday. Incident according to the Department officers had unsuccessfully deployed a Taser when Blake walked to the other side of the vehicle open the driver side door end quote leaned forward. Blake told investigators after the shooting about the knife he had in his possession. The Department statement said that did not say the officers saw the knife for knew it was there and witnessed told NBC News he heard officers yelled drop the knife before shots were fired. Police had responded to an incident in which a man at the home of a woman and was not supposed to be there but did not want to say whether that man was blake the officer who shot Blake in the back seven times has been identified as Rushden, Rushton show ski a seven year veteran of the Kenosha police department. He remains on administrative leave during the course of this investigation meanwhile protests continued in the city overnight as the governor Santana. Five hundred members of the State's National Guard to support local law enforcement. The cities curfew was also moved up an hour to seven PM, which will be in effect. Sunday. Willie. And police. Now have arrested a seventeen year old man who allegedly open fire late Tuesday killing two and wounding another in Kenosha Wisconsin Kyle written house facing multiple counts including first degree murder after allegedly fire into a gathered crowd protests, the shooting of Jacob Blake. A warning that this next video again is disturbing the sound of gunfire was captured before midnight Tuesday in a video posted to twitter, which shows a man aiming a rifle at protesters. One person appears to try to grab the weapon before shot is fired at least one other person was shot before the shooter fled the scene. NBC News cannot confirm what happened leading up to our after this video was taken or whether the incident is the same shooting described by police before the shooting the daily caller conducted an interview with the suspected gunman in front of a boarded up business speaking before the arrest was announced Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Mandela. Barnes said the gunman was believed to be a vigilante and part of a militia group that showed up to help protect property from looting in the area. Led shooter social media history also being investigated as part of the case against him according to the Associated Press much of written houses. facebook page is devoted to praising law enforcement with references to blue lives matter in addition, a video posted to a tick tock account purportedly run by Rittenhouse appears to show him sitting in the front row at a rally hosted by president trump in January that video has been verified by c-span video of the event. Let's bring it now, NBC News Correspondent Gutierrez live from. Kenosha Wisconsin gave good morning. What more can you tell us about what happened here? I want to tell you what happened here overnight. This was yet another night of protests here in Kenosha but thankfully, this one was relatively peaceful. This came after the Wisconsin governor authorized another five hundred extra members of the Wisconsin National Guard president. Trump tweeted that we send in more federal resources but local officials say that they were already bringing in more resources yesterday now that the truck that burnt out truck behind me that actually. That happened several days ago north authorities were trying to prevent a repeat of that protesters had been gathering here at the county courthouse and again thankfully things for peace peaceful overnight no major clashes. But yes, as you mentioned Willie several new developments in this investigation, the US Department of Justice is actually confirmed that it's opening a civil rights investigation into the Blake Shooting and yesterday for the first time we did hear from them Wisconsin Attorney General talking about several. Things including identifying the officer for the first time who fired those shots rest chassis ski as you mentioned, as been an officer here in Kenosha for the last seven years and also the attorney general saying that a knife was found in Blake's car now lakes Fam- family attorneys have repeatedly said that that should not make a difference at officers should have found a way to de escalate that situation but really, there's also a separate investigation into that shooting it happened. One day ago last night the previous night actually were two people were killed. One person injured. Now Rittenhouse, as you mentioned a teenager from Illinois with yesterday. Antioch Illinois. and. As you mentioned, his social media presence seems to suggest the strong support for law enforcement. Now, he was interviewed shortly before the shooting and he explained why he was armed take a listen. People. Are. Getting injured. Our jobs this. Part of my job. There's somebody heard I'm running into harm's way. John. Ritter houses public defender has not commented yet. He has an extradition hearing scheduled for Friday but again, the investigation into the Blake shooting continues the officers involved remain on administrative leave. No charges filed yet no timetable for that investigation, but it continues. Over. The last it continues and again there there were peaceful here overnight after several nights of violence willing. Are. Again. BBC's gave Gutierrez a lot to comb through there and Kenosha. Wisconsin gave thanks so much, Meka. All, right, let's bring a professor at Princeton University and author of the new book. Begin again. Eddie, Glut Junior and Eddie so much to worry about and be deeply disturbed about here. Pulling back. What are you? What are you thinking so far about what is happening in Kenosha? Well. I'm trying to make sense of it. You know we get a good cat. We get a a stark contrast Mika. Man, who lit who supposedly had a knife in his car is shot in the back seven times a seventeen year old white teenager kills two people's injures. Another walks down the street with an AR fifteen in his arrested and he's still and he's not. Approached by police in an aggressive way or shot or the like. So you get a sense of tangible concrete sense of the different ways in which particular bodies our police that's the first thing. The second thing is that you know sometimes we are concerned about the violence of protests and I want to say that we need to shift the concern. That is to say what are the reasons behind it and we need to begin to think more carefully about who are we more concerned about in these instances and we have to finally address this in the last point I would make this. The country binges on grief and suffering like a show on Netflix six. We have to go through this so much and Meka, it's it's some people can can watch this and then go about their business. Those of us who are black we have to worry about our children. We have to worry about our loved ones. It creates this environment of deep stress because we're afraid we're afraid of what the police will do, and that is happening that fear is happening against the backdrop of what my pin said last night and this call law and order. I'll say this really quickly James, Baldwin and he meant it, he meant it provocatively. Policing in the United States he says, we continue to live under the slave codes. Isn't that something. And what does he mean? The terms of how black bodies are valued, how police approach us what they think of think of us we have a lot of work to do make a lot of work to do. Well and then the violence the protests in the wake of inflamed racial tension erupted again in Minnesota last night, the governor activated the National Guard to subdue the unrest that broke out in downtown Minneapolis it followed. Authorities. Said was misinformation about the suicide death of a black male homicide suspect police released footage of the incident but it did little to quell the already raging protesters dozens of store and restaurant windows were smashed and looted. The city imposed a ten PM curfew and Eddie I wanna ask you about the violence but also. When you think of the words of Jacob Blake's mother. You, I feel like this is what we're lacking in the leader of the free world because. Somebody has to restore calm and there has to be a sense of hierarchy and leadership that we can trust and we're not getting it Might even be being stirred up. We'll definitely you know when we hear calls for law and order in the way that we heard last night without even mentioning Jacob Blake didn't even come to didn't even cross a vice president Pinson's lips. We know what he's doing. He's appearing. He's appealing to white fear white resentment. Why Grievance? And the like trying to mobilize those fears for his own political gain for trump's political game. Let's look. Let's let's let's step back. Of course. It's the case that we don't want people looting and we don't want a people burning down. We understand that but what does it mean that we turn their first? Let's let's turn to what is precipitating this Meka why do we have to continue to ask the question about violence when we're not asking the question about what precipitates? Why are we concerned that we're playing into the hands of Donald Trump in this instance when we should be asking the more fundamental question why are police doing this and why? Are we in an environment where even they hit the misinformation around police action can lead to the spark of protest. In this instance in other words, we need to get to the heart of the matter. It's clear for my Pinson Donald trump black people don't fall within the sphere of their moral concern, but we have to shift the gravity of our concern as we grapple with this issue in this particular moment. We know why Donald? Trump and Mike pence talk that way about these these continued in these ongoing incidences because they believe it picks them up a few extra votes that may swing the election. But let's put that to the side and go back to the heart of the matter that you're talking about. After George Floyd we all stopped in our tracks, the country stop in its tracks and says, okay. This has to stop how do we do better? Let's make some change. Again we saw we're GONNA talk about this at some length a few minutes we saw the NBA step up and say we're not even going to play in the playoffs until something changes. So how do we do better at taking that next step toward change rather than just talking about that change what needs to happen right now? Right so so so we need to begin to talk seriously about the nature of the pool of policing in this country, the idea safety without all of the rhetoric around the the rhetoric and misinformation bad safe around the debate about defunding the police we need to understand that what happened to Jacob Blake what happened to George Floyd is a consequence of daily policing the way in which our communities are over policed in an over surveilled under protected, and so what do we need to talk about we need to start talking about decriminalization of the code? We, need to talk about demilitarization. We need to talk about qualified immunity. We need to begin to have a serious conversation about the nature of safety in our communities and that conversation translate into concrete actions. Philip Tiba Golf has been talking about this. We have legislation currently, but we it's very difficult to get the're willy, and this is key when we have to convince our fellows. Something is profoundly wrong with the nature policing in this country people believed to say that the way in which. Police Officers White Black Green Purple Yellow interact with black communities contains or evidence a deep systemic racism there denying that truth the facts are what they are and so when even when we can't even agree on the facts, it becomes very difficult to mobilize in order to actually change policing in this moment willie. So we have to who we are. You know I mean this is the problem we keep sticking our head in the sand. We don't believe who we are. There is this. The story is now reshaping professional sports as we know it. Led by the NBA boycotts are disrupting Major League baseball soccer even tennis as athletes take a stand against systemic racism. WE'RE GONNA speak to my to Rico of NBC sports about this angle, and it's pretty amazing. Also, we'll get to night three of the Republican National Convention where Vice President Mike Pence tried to make the case for president trump Johnson lemere joins us live from the White House with his latest reporting on that plus ongoing coverage of the dangerous storms striking the Gulf coast right now, we'll have the latest pictures from that region as they come to light morning joe is coming right back.

I hope you'll join us for these conversations new episodes, drop every Monday Wednesday and Thursday search for into America wherever you are listening right now and subscribe. Ign Tremaine Lee host of into America a podcast from MSNBC.

Americans. And who we want to become new episodes every Monday Wednesday and Thursday subscribe now. Last week Joe Biden didn't say one word. About the violence and chaos engulfing cities across this country. So let me be clear. The violence must stop. Whether in Minneapolis Portland four Kenosha too many heroes of died defending our freedom to see American strike each other down we will have law and order on the streets of this country for every American of every race and creed and color. Actually Mike Pence. Earlier that day Joe Biden did condemn the violent protests, stick a lesson. Video makes me sick. Once again, a Black Man Jacob Blake is been shot by the police in broad daylight with the whole world watching. I spoke to Jacob's mom and dad sister and other members of the family just a little bit earlier and I told him justice must and will be done put yourself in the shoes of every black father and black mother in this country and ask is this what we want America to be is this the country we should be In l., as I said after George slides murder. Protesting brutality is a right and absolutely necessary but burning down communities is not protest. It's needless violence violence. It endangers live violence guts, businesses, and shutters businesses serve the community. That's wrong. What unite and he'll do justice and the violence and and systemic racism is country now. Right. So Mike, Pence Notre Vice President Mike Pence. If you WANNA make a big applause line about something Joe, Biden didn't say maybe check whether or not. He said it not sure. The Republican Party cares more from Mike Pence is vice. President Mike Pence, his speech last night in which he looked to rebut Joe. Biden's claim that president trump has failed to protect Americans against the coronavirus pandemic take a US. As we speak. We're developing a growing number of treatments. Notice Therapeutics. Including convalescent plasma that are saving lives all across America. Now last week Joe Biden said. Let no miracle is coming. What would joe doesn't seem to understand. Is that America is a nation of miracles. I'm proud to report that we're on track to have the world's first safe effective corona virus vaccine by the end of this year. After all the sacrifice. In this year like Noah. All the hardship. Finding our way forward again. Now, now we're not the US death toll has now hit one, hundred, eighty, one, hundred, eighty, thousand people and speaking of Joe Biden. Maybe what the miracle was is that in January he knew this was coming. And that the Obama White House actually had a pandemic. That the president trump actually broke down got rid of everybody would have been much more prepared. Had you kept that office intact but Joe Biden did? Spell out very clearly in a USA Today opinion piece that maybe Vice President Mike Pence and president trump should read warning America of this coming pandemic and of all the lives that could be lost. But now we have lost them and we are losing more we're at one, hundred, eighty, thousand deaths and you're going to trump. Pathetic potential vaccines and therapeutics that may or may not work? No no no no. No. No. You can't claim victory after one, hundred, eighty, thousand deaths many of which could have been avoided had this had been handled better. And everyone knows that especially those who are doctors and scientists and who are leading the way or those serving on the front lines they know this didn't have to happen and that people working on the frontlines didn't even have the proper equipment and p. p. to fight this pandemic because this government, this president did not give it to them. Pence also claimed that Democrats don't WanNa talk about their agenda. Fellow Americans were passing through a time of testing. But soon, we will come to a time for choosing. Joe Biden has referred to himself as a transition. And many were asking transition to one. Last week. Democrats didn't talk very much about their agenda. If I were them. I would neither. The Republican Party for the first time in it's one, hundred, sixty, six year history didn't issue a policy platform this year. In fact, it was really hard to keep up with. The the the lies. Joining us now White House reporter for the Associated Press Jonathan. Jonathan first of all house, the White House feeling about how the convention is going so far and The fact checking along the way with a little bit impossible. Would you agree with that? Certainly, make I mean the White House to this point, they're pleased with how things have gone so far it's all building towards, of course, the president's speech tonight, and as of late last night, they said there were no plans to postpone or Alter J. scheduled despite the hurricane making landfall and the Gulf coast will, of course, stay tuned for that to pick up your point about the sense of unreality that has permeated this convention particularly on the pandemic you heard the vice president, defend the administration's handling of that but even just the setting itself, we should underscore this that. was a live audience. There were several hundred people there. Some of them were masks not many. They were not particularly socially distance and reporters who were there last night in Baltimore talk to people in the crowd and many of them said, they were not tested for the coronavirus before they arrived and you saw video earlier the vice president and the president sort of worked the rope line a little bit after the speech Vice. President pence was even seen giving out handshakes fist bumps potentially being exposed to someone who was not tested for the virus and in terms of last night. Attempt. To be tightly scripted narrative last night was about short up trying to shore up support or win back support from women voters, and it was a tribute to law enforcement. But while that was happening, of course, all of this raging outside the hurricane. Yes. But also the protests in Kenosha and it should be noted that as much as vice president and other speakers. Last night talked about law enforcement. There was nary a word for the black victims of police violence. Jonathon let me I want to pick up on something else that the vice president said, we just played it a second ago about a vaccine. He said he quoted Joe Biden no miracle is coming, and then he said this is a nation of miracles. There'll be a vaccine by the end of the year. Of course, the Joe Biden quote was a reference to President. Trump saying back in late February that corona virus would just disappear like a miracle. That's why he was referring to with his initial quote. Is there some evidence about which most public health experts are not familiar that there will be a vaccine at the end of the year or is this what it appears to be them dangling vaccine as a means to get reelected? Administration officials are confident not making any guarantees. There's a there's an optimism that there will some sort of vaccine breakthrough by years now, whether it happens before the election or not remains to be seen, could certainly imagine those close to the White House hope that is the case there will an announcement of some sort of if not a vaccine itself perhaps acknowledged. They're very close to having one. Now, of course, let's remember Willie. You can have there's a significant difference between having a vaccine being able to widely distributed to everyone who needs at that everyone sort of acknowledges that wouldn't take place until next year but we saw over the weekend raises questions about the credibility of this administration with sets announcements, the blood blood the. Plaza announced over the weekend had to be walked back a little bit. The FDA had had to apologize for overstating its effectiveness is possibly a good development. Yes. Is something that has shown some evidence of helping yes. But not nearly to the degree that it was portrayed on Sunday night here at the white. House where it was suggested that it was the latest almost miracle treatment that could really save scores of lives and that's just an overstated development and I think we've seen that time and time again particularly from the president himself as he has suggested that the virus will just go away touted various unproven and sometimes dangerous medications. When the vaccine does com. Whether it's announcement in September October December this administration is going to have credibility issues when it comes to whether people believe that is safe to take whether they think this vaccine is real because of the false promises that come along the way, and there's some will suspect it is just an election ploy. Well then there's it's kind of hard to keep up. There's this the White House Chief of Staff John Lemaire Mark Meadows yesterday dismissed what many have called the administration's blatant violation at the Hatch Act by speaking at the Republican National Convention saying quote no one outside the Beltway. Really cares. Nobody outside of the Beltway really cares they expect that Donald Trump is going to promote republican values and they would expect that Barack Obama when he was office that he would do the same for Democrats and so listen. This is a lot of HOOPLA that's being made about things mainly because the convention has been so unbelievably successful. Net has went on to tell politico that critics are applying the law beyond its original intent. Quote what is really designed to do is to make sure people like myself and others do not use their political position to try and convince other employees or other federal employees that they need to vote. One way we take it on well beyond the original intent of the Hatch Act the Hatch Act prohibits use of taxpayer funds for political activity Ritz which critics argue includes using the White House as a backdrop for RNC events, as well as a convention speech by Secretary of State Mike pompeo Walla in Jerusalem in his. Capacity. Come on politico reports the office of Special Counsel, which Investigates Violations of the Hatch Act says certain areas of the white. House grounds are traditionally exempt from the ban on political activity including the Rose Garden where the first lady gave her address on Tuesday night I mean Jonathan Lanier this is come on. This is a joke and again to say that people don't care well I would argue that some people actually do care. We'll make there's nothing more overtly political. Then the political convention that's happens every four years mark meadows. There is voicing what the White House statement has been throughout. They think they can. They're trying to walk a thin line here they're suggesting that. Specific. Government portions of the White House say the Oval Office or pieces of the West Wing. Yes they knowledge that would be off limits but yet they say that something like the South Lawn or the White House residence, the Rose Garden would be less and to be clear the president himself and the first lady are largely Farley. Exempt from Hatch Act violations that's been the case throughout there have been they have just embraced this fight throughout the we have. Seen not just sector say Pompeii oh. Of course give it was obviously a political speech while doing on an official trip to the Middle East to Israel but even just some of the smaller things, the trappings of the White House we saw some the video they played this week of marines opening up a door for the president as he walked from one portion of the White House or another technically that shouldn't be allowed either as part of the hatchback. Members of defense. Department that shouldn't be used. Images should not be part of political advertisements or moments which of course, the convention is I mean Yeah. This White House is banking on the idea that most the average American doesn't care about this sort of thing but we don't know that that's true. Certainly, there are moments where interests of the. Inside the Beltway Jones lineup with those outside for their Americans, do care about decency about falling law other presidents have fallen the hatchback sometimes when they've gone violation, they've been rebuked. That has matter this White House is claiming that it won't now, but I think we can. We should expect the number of lawsuits from good government groups in the coming days over how the White House has tried to stage convention basically all one piece of federal property after another. And what a terrible argument Jonathan from Mark Meadows, you could extend that out as far as you want to. Oh Americans don't care about ethics rules. They don't care about our families still be involved in businesses that could go on forever and if you numb the people enough and say, well, it's not sexy it's not in the headlines they don't care. So we don't have to follow those laws that's just a garbage argument, but I digress let's move onto something else which is this idea that president trump we were just talking about it with Eddie. Vice President Pence are going out and focusing on what's happening in the streets of places like Kenosha and the streets of Portland in the streets of Seattle and across the country not focusing on the incident that spurred some of the violence we've seen but focusing on the violence itself, it's a cynical play. We know that Eddie has condemned the looting and the Reverend Al Sharpton and everyone else that's come on this show has done that but they ignore the spirit of the protests, the intent of the protests, the reason for the protest and focus on the violence that has come out of it. This is a play for suburban votes I guess to scare people. Do they feel like it's working right now. We know there are some people who listen to that and they see those pictures on TV and they say I don't want that coming to my city the president really trying to underline that this week. This is the thing that the White House has struck since George Floyd's death over the summer in Minneapolis and it's been months save lean into very much in support of of the law and order pizza. This they've depicted what has been largely peaceful protests as violence riots. The president used the word thugs at one point to describe those engaging in peaceful protests Certainly, there have been acts of violence, but that's Few and far between in the duration of these protests shorts floyd's death certainly the White House and the trump campaign. This is furthering their argument. Right. The president has been saying for a while. Now look at the chaos in the streets of Portland and Seattle that's anarchy the left wing radicals that will come to a town near you and a Republican strategist said to me yesterday look Kenosha that feels like a town near you. These aren't just big cities. Now, we're seeing moments like this come into smaller jurisdictions they feel the trump campaign says, yes, that that is a good thing that those images help the president's arguments in terms of needing a tough law, pro law and order chief executive here to sort of quell this to bring. Stability Back to America streets but you're right there's been cooling yesterday we'll see about today very little, very little discussion of those who for suffer who died at the hands of police through the moments that sparked these protests to begin with I'll say this really as a final point west wing aides say they previewed a little bit of the president's remarks. It's still being worked on today we're told that. Don't expect it to be quite as dark as his infamous american-carnage inauguration speech but he's absolutely going to make this contrast is GonNa draw a juxtaposition between the radical left which he says controls Joe Biden and what doing and he's going to portray himself as sort of the final barrier between those radical forces and the normal American way of life look for that and patriotism to be among his themes tonight. Alright Johnson Lemaire live for us at the White House no hatchback violations for him so far. Coming up NBC SPORTS MIKE TO RICO JOINS US to discuss dramatic escalation in a season of athletes demonstrating for social justice morning joe is a moment. Hey It's Chris as this week and my podcast wise is happening. I'll be talking with stokes political scientists who covers utility companies about how they are the key to our climate future. You don't get to choose who you buy your electricity from electric is an essential service. So if I don't like that my utility is anti climate action or is using money from my rates to fund dark money campaigns I don't have. Any exit option I can't go to buy from somebody else. So I think that they are real legal questions as to whether or not monopoly utilities with a guaranteed profit and unlimited funds to spend on politics from captured customer base for an essential service should be allowed to spend money in politics at all this week on why is this happening search for? Why is this happening wherever you're listening right now and subscribe? Welcome back to morning Joe the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin sparked boycotts postponements across the world of sports yesterday led by the NBA and the Milwaukee, bucks who refuse to take the floor in their first round playoff series against the Orlando Magic. Pass for months I've seen a light on racial injustice facing are African American community citizens around the country, their voices and platform to speak out against these long booms despite the willing plea for change, there has been no action. So our focus today cannot be basketball. Taken to court and Represent Wall Wisconsin, we are expanded to play at a high level give maximum effort not accountable. We hold ourselves to their standard, and then this moment we are manning the same from lawmakers law enforcement. The Bucks team reading statement there the move which prompted the NBA to postpone all three of three playoff game scheduled yesterday comes with the support of the bucks owners even though they did not know about it beforehand while the team senior vice president put out a statement on twitter reading. Quote some things are bigger than basketball. The stand taken today by the players and organization shows that we are fed up enough is enough change needs to happen I. AM incredibly proud of our guys and we stand one hundred percent behind our players ready to assist and bring about real change. The protest yesterday flowed beyond the NBA to several other major sports leagues, including Games in the WNBA Major League, baseball, and major league soccer following. The NBA's decision the WNBA as three scheduled games. For last night, we're postponed after players declined to compete baseball games between the Cincinnati reds and Milwaukee brewers in Milwaukee, Seattle Mariners padres in San Diego and Los Angeles dodgers and giants in San Francisco or called off hours before they were set to begin and all but one of six major league soccer matches yesterday were postponed after one or both teams decided not to play. The NFL's Washington football team confirm last night. It has cancelled today scrimmage at Fedex field to allow for a time of reflection and tennis star Naomi Asaka says, she will not compete in today's semifinal match at the western and southern open citing her position as a black woman in a majority white sport. Let's bring in Mike Tirico of NBC Sports Mike. Good Morning. It's great to have you with us today just I your broad stroke. I was thinking yesterday it was the fourth anniversary of Colin Kaepernick first sitting on the bench for the national anthem during an NFL preseason game, August twenty, six, two, thousand sixteen. He was effectively run out of the League for that, and now here we are four short years later with the most famous athlete in America and perhaps on Earth Lebron James leading the NBA a walkout. It. Grades to be at the table with all this morning. It is so stark the reality of the impact of what you just said this is a cross sports. This is not one NBA team that plays in Wisconsin saying we're not going to play this spread through all of the players there in Orlando and the bubble. Then the WNBA like you said also in their own bubble of break Florida and on through baseball named Asaka in tennis I can't think of historically as widespread a day of protest in the world. Of Sports that we've seen in America we've seen significant protest John Carlos and Tommie Smith in nineteen sixty eight Olympics in Mexico City when they raised a fish for black power on the podium as they were receiving medals this though is so widespread and was so grassroots really as it took off at either Willie the day before the Detroit lions didn't have their practice they had a full conversation about these issues. So this is sports using its platform voice in a way that we candidly haven't seen on this scale before. Mike as you know, these guys in the NBA across sports this is what they live for the play offs and the chance to win a title Lebron. James would love to go get another title but he said no I'm willing to not even play because some things are bigger than this. There was some reporting last night the Lakers and clippers had had preliminary talks about Boycotting the rest of the season just walking away that has not been made official yet but at least that's on the table right now how significant is that for Lebron James to be the voice of this? He is some people who said he's the de facto commissioner of of the NBA, but certainly, he holds as much influence as anybody in in the League if he says. We're not playing this season what happens to the NBA. Fascinating what is and we make it the answer to that the next couple of days to the players were supposed to reconvene today that's one advantage for them of all being in Orlando and playing there that same bubbles. So the players and coaches who wanted to come to the meeting last night were able to do so eight o'clock there down in central Florida to the Lebron Point. Willy we all are. Fans of Sports I. Know You are as well. We think of Michael Jordan's reticence to take a stand in a political race because as he was advised Republicans by shoes as well. Charles Barkley talk not being a role model athletes have put the pause button at times on following the trail by Muhammad Ali back in the seventies in terms of activism because of the potential blowback from their fans because let's Face it. Some of their fans may not agree with their political statements. He does that impact endorsements and other things I think a couple of things have changed one the players have their phones they have their social media, they have voices and they have as we all know it's what's the Click Bait game followers. So their followers could truly follow their lead if they politically activate and then secondly I think. The. Amount of money the players are making, they're not going to be potentially impacted forever by a stand they may take in the post column capital. World. It's only four years ago as you said. So then you put those things together it gives them the recipe to make statements like this, and if they don't go on with the NBA season, they'll be next season their minds guys didn't feel that before. We talked yesterday about Doc rivers. The NBA coach spoke so eloquently about what happened in Kenosha? And we saw again yesterday across sports television just amazing commentary just off the cuff and one of them came from four. NBA. All Star and of Course University of Michigan College Basketball Legend now a TV analysts Chris, Webber here's what he had to say. We know vote we vote everybody vote. But I'm here to speak for those that. Always marginalized. Those, who live in these neighborhoods where we preach and tell him the vote and walk away. Charles Barkley came to my high school. Just, seeing him in locker room scene, his hands and body that inspired me. You can't see something. You can't be something to. When I tell you the little kids that have called me. Upset. have a Godson that has autism and I just had to explain to him. Why we aren't playing. Young nephews have had talked to about death before they be missing it in a movie. If not now when? If not doing a pandemic. And countless lives being lost if not now win. That's all I just want to hear from rested night where everybody's participating in thinking and soapbox in. All of that we know nothing is going to change. We get it TA- Martin Luther. King got shot him risked his life ever. We've seen this in all of our heroes. Constantly taken down, we understand is not gonNA end but that does not mean young men that you don't do anything. Don't listen to these people telling you don't do anything because he's not going to end right away. You were starting something for the next generation and the next generation to take over. Do you have to be smart? Yes. You have to make sure that you have a plan. Yes. Do you have to be our ticketed about that plan? Yes. All of those things but that's what you're going to do. They're professionals they know how to be the best to themselves. and. So I applaud it. I applauded because it is the young people. Is the young people leading the way. And I applaud. Eddie Chris. Webber was so impressive last night as were Shaquille O'Neal and Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith who actually walked off the set of a famous TNT pregame and postgame show in protest to join along with the players but. As Mike said, I'm a huge sports fan. These guys have always lived on TV somewhere on a poster on some different plane. But what we're seeing right now is their humanity and their shared experience and what they've been through in their own lives despite their fame and their stardom now. These incidents are bringing back down and showing us the shared experience. Absolutely William, we can't forget that they're human beings that have children. They have loved ones, Lebron James expressed it explicitly right that he was afraid for his children right that he hit. So so this is really important and Mike I want to ask you a question. Put on your political science Syracuse political science hat. Along was your your knowledge of sport what do you make of the political potential of these athletes leveraging their platforms in this moment at this time we know what Donald Trump will say. But what do you think of the potential political effects of what what in essence wildcat strikes in some ways? Yeah. Exactly that that's the that's the right term for what happened. Last night professor I would say, I go back to. The answer I just gave Willie I think the followers, that number that everybody who how many people are following me on this platform that platform well, we'll those followers truly follow the lead of these players and what does that mean? Does that mean protests at me get involved in their communities does that mean photo certain way? All of those could be answered? Yes. In that would be the activation I. Think we've seen. Were given by mouse to. Get out the vote I. Think we're seeing actions from players. We're seeing actions from teams as well and I think that's where it's significant because this is the black America or a white America issue. It's an American issue and I think when you see teams opening up their stadiums on election day for the ability to have Colin places in a safe a centralized place where maybe it might not be the case because of a variety of reasons during the pandemic that says a lot that everyone is trying to get the vote out however, folks might vote. Whatever way whatever candidate? So I think that activation is happening and I just had one of the things that you hear from Chris Webber, these other players. That's the experience that they had. We see them as star athletes. We don't see if they're in a police stop or other things that happen that they live in fear and we hear these veteran players advising their kids what to do in case there stopped in a situation like that. That's where it's become raw and them sharing those experiences which in the past they were afraid to that is what's resonating think with a lot of folks right now. Some people have told these NBA players over the years to quote shut up in dribble as someone wanted out yesterday, they're doing exactly the opposite of that they're speaking out and not playing. That's how important this is to them. Mike Tirico, we're so lucky to have your insights on a day like this thing so much we'll see you soon. Meka goes really you. Have, a big impact I think still ahead, we're tracking the path of Hurricane Laura as the storm moves inland. We'll go live to Louisiana where the status being slammed with powerful winds and heavy rain right now you're watching morning Joe, we will be right back. Hey It's Chris. Hayes this week on my podcast. Why is this happening? I'll be talking with Ryan thumb about the Chinese government's ongoing ethnic cleansing of its your minority. You can make people submit, but it's very difficult to make them think differently, there's bound to be a large percentage of this million or so people who they determine to be redeemable and I'm worried about what happens you know the German concentration camps it was something like four or five years before the majority of the. Population in them was Jewish and it was eight or nine years before they were connected to a program of mass killing. So the reason I bring that up is that goals can change especially when you're looking at such a massive system that has no appeal system, no regulation, no oversight, and we've already seen that the rest of the world's reaction to this has been rather slow at this week on wise is happening search for wise is happening wherever you listening right now and subscribe.

Day 952: DOJ releases IG report on Comey as Hurricane Dorian threatens Florida

"Tonight the justice department's inspector general slams james komi but despite the president's tweets he wound faced prosecution tonight's reaction a and what republicans are planning next plus democrats think they have a new way to strip mitch mcconnell of his title of majority leader and what all of this means names for president donald trump. The eleventh hour on a thursday night starts right now good good evening once again from our n._b._c. news headquarters here in new york. I'm steve kornacki in for brian williams. Who has the night off day nine fifty two of the trump administration and today hey we got a highly anticipated report from the d._o._j.'s internal watchdog that found former f._b._i. Director james comey violated policy in his handling of memos on his interactions with the president. We also learned in the report the d._o._j. Has declined to prosecute komi over this episode. The report found that komi violated policies by keeping four memos in a personal safe it said that komi shared one of the most with a friend and then you had that friend leak its contents to the new york times that particular memo that was leaked the report noted did not contain classified information. Komi also according to the report shared four memos with his private attorneys one of which contained information that was retroactively classified at the lowest level. The report reads in part quote oh by not safeguarding sensitive information obtained during the course of his f. b. i. employment in by using it to create public pressure for official action. Komi set ed dangerous example for the over thirty five thousand current f. b. i. employees and many thousands more former f._b._i. Employees who similarly have access to or knowledge of of non public information. We should note that this is the second inspector general report to criticize combs conduct in presidential politics. The first was was for his unilaterally held a news conference in that letter he wrote to congress about hillary clinton toward the end of the two thousand sixteen election as you might expect we heard from the president on on twitter today quote perhaps never in the history of our country has someone been more thoroughly disgraced in excoriated james komi and the just released inspector general's report. He should be ashamed of himself. In the white house released a statement that read in part quote james comey is a proven liar and leaker inspector general's report shows komi violated the most basic obligations of confidentiality that he owed to the united states government and to the american people. Komi defended his actions on twitter. He wrote this quote. I don't need a public apology from those who defamed me but a quick message with a story we lied about you would be nice and to all those who spent two years. Here's talking about me going to jail or being a liar and leaker. Ask yourselves why you still trust people who gave you bad info for so long. Including the the president managed that petoskey of the washington post points out today quote by now kony's memos are well known they described among other things how trump had pressed i komi for loyalty in asked him about letting govan investigation into former national security adviser michael flynn yours. What some of what we heard about the i g report tonight on fox. Fox news report shows it from the very beginning of the trump administration comey pursued a partisan political agenda and that he did it in the sleaziest most feline eline possible way and as it turns out america's self proclaimed super patriot is nothing more than a dirty corrupt former bureaucrat that we'll be in syria significantly legal jeopardy as this all unfolds. This is the ultimate easel. I mean he knows what he does and to try and blame it all on the the people that i didn't leak. He used a mule mr richmond and that's what i call it because that's what he's trying to portray himself ads. Is somebody disconnected from this. He's not james. Kelly knows exactly what he was doing. Here's here's what everybody has to put in perspective. This was the head of the f._b._i. Should president trump should have president trump fire james komi here seven andy p pages of the reason why by the way this is not the first time james has violated rules regulations of the department of justice. We've already had reports on that so that's number one of the president one hundred reasons which are laying out right here here for our leadoff discussion on a thursday night. Elizabeth was with you miller washington bureau chief for the new york times jeremy bash former chief of staff at the c._i._a. And the pentagon as well as former counsel to the house intelligence committee and frank caluzzi former f._b._i. Assistant director for counterintelligence at thank you all for being with us frank. I'll just start with you. Did this report say what you expected it to say it. Did it tried to straddle the middle. It said that it said what many inspector general's reports say which is that some some rules were broken but my so my question on hatice which rules are you talking about the rules that govern a corrupt president accident that is trying to obstruct an investigation who is under a counter intelligence inquiry. Who's about to fire the f._b._i. Director. I don't know what those rules rules are an. I was part of internal affairs functions in the f._b._i. So i don't know what the inspector general is doing except doing the bean counting that i do when saying yeah you shouldn't have taken some memos home and we're really troubled by the fact that you gave them to personal attorneys. The problem is it's the director of the f._b._i. He's an original classifying pacifying authority. He gets to decide which memos to write and why and the question i would post to the what was he supposed to do. Under this scenario who is supposed to give the memo's too that he should never have possessed the deputy attorney general united states who wrote a memo justifying his firing the white house who's tried to obstruct an investigation investigation. This is an unprecedented situation and the trying to overlay the rule book on something. We've never seen before so elizabeth. Take us through. There's sort of you've got this criticism intense criticism here of the actions of the decisions that komi made from the report you also have d._o._j. Uh-huh saying they're not going to prosecute for basically saying he broke the rules but he won't be prosecuted. Explain what the rationale is there well. He broke no laws. That's the bottom line. He didn't leak classified information which would be breaking the law. He was very careful with the memo's you can see if you look at the report how redacted some of the memos before he gave them to his lawyers lawyers. He certainly did not give any classified information to reporters <hes> so he violated d._o._j. Policy by disclosing information outside the f._b._i. <hes> but these memos he himself had written and again he <hes> he the big question here is where they his memos or do they belong to the f._b._i. The said they belong to the f._b._i. But he wrote the memo and i just like to point out that because he made the public he he said he did this on purpose. He triggered the the the special counsel investigation and as a result of that we learned in pretty good detail about russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election and also <hes> potentially obstructive acts by the president so so i don't see i don't do americans think that's not a good idea that we learned that so that would be my question well so let's pick up their questions hear me because that that was a commes justification for leaking this story for having his friend leaked the story to the new york times in the first place he had just been fired. He had these memos he believed leave t._a.'ed witnessed conduct by the president that needed to come to light that needed to be investigated disappeared in the new york times and a lot has happened since then the report does address arrest commes rationale as i just laid out there. This is their response. They say even when these employees believe that they're most strongly held personal convictions might be served by an unauthorized disclosure the f._b._i. Depends on them not to disclose sensitive information former director. Komi failed to live up to its responsibility. Also says were were current or former f._b._i. Employees to follow the former directors example in disclose sensitive information in service of their own strongly held personal convictions the f._b._i. Would be unable to dispatch its law enforcement duties properly. What do you make of that for the saying there about comey's justification for this or there are two lenses through which to view chimneys conduct the first is the legal ends and this report focused on the fact that while policies were violated the law was not violated but then. I think there's a a broader lens. There is an ethical lens which is did jim komi do the right thing in speaking out about the president's obstructive conduct the first manner in which he spoke it was anonymously and he did that because of course he'd just been fired by the president and i think he rightly felt that if he were speak out publicly and go to the microphones and explain the the fact that the president tried to get the f._b._i. To drop the investigation of mike flynn that in fact the president will dismiss it right away because of course the president was out there explaining and justifying to find his firing of jim komi so i he spoke anonymously but then shortly thereafter after the special counsel was appointed because of that anonymous speech jim can we spoke publicly publicly he testified in front of the senate and he's also spoken out publicly not our fashions as well and by the way in all of his public statements both anonymous and public not a single single fact has been disproven and in fact the mole report validated independently every single fact. Jim comey put on the public record. Yeah i mean it does seem like an unusual situation. I guess i'm curious. Maybe with the benefit of hindsight here could you look back and see away for komi to have achieved steve what he was trying to achieve that would have lived within the rules of the d._o._j. And the f._b._i. Established well. Let's understand the context he he didn't even even says in the report he told the i g. I'm doing this because i could not trust the white house i could not trust the president and as jeremy said all of his mistrust was actually right on the money. He ended up getting fired soon after he did this. So what would i have done. I've thought about this. There's a possibility of could've you've provided those memos to the house or senate and house and senate intelligence committees. You could have sent them to the i g but again the g. works for d._o._j. And the attorney general he he did what he felt he had to do. I once read an account of a state trooper who saved a family from a burning car on the highway. His supervisor rolls up on the scene looks at the trooper burger and reprimands him for not wearing the regulation hat. That was required. That's essentially what the i g did today like it or not. Call me felt. The white house was on fire right. He did what he felt he needed to do. He's been reprimanded for not wearing the mandatory hat. That's essentially what we saw today. In germany these events that took place <hes> this is sort of being discussed here that took place little over two years ago. There's been so much. It's happened the last two years but i think think folks remember. There was the firing of james komi there. Was this story that landed in new york times. There was the appointment of the special counsel. This all played out a one or two week period in may of twenty seven th that new york times story that was based on the memo that was the komi got through his friend to the is there a special council investigation without that. It's hard to know the counterfactual steve but i think we all can can feel better off for the fact that jim komo's actions led to to the special counsel appointment and after all bob muller's investigation led to the prosecution of numerous individuals it led to lead to the conviction and of numerous individuals and led to the exposure of russian intelligence efforts to interfere and obstruct our election and it led to a volume two the report that explained in grave detail the way the president tried to undermine justice and so i think we are all better off for the bob mueller investigation. I think without committee's conduct. We may never had it elizabeth. Komi has obviously towered over our politics for several years now obviously in the trump administration and for all the reasons we're discussing but if you think back previous to the trump administration in the two thousand sixteen campaign there was that press conference he held that summer saying hey there's not going to be charges against against hillary clinton but then you know essentially indicting or in the court of public opinion the letter he sent to congress just before the election into their clinton folks who still believe she is not the president because of that letter he said about ten days before the election. I know it seems there is some irony today in this d._o._j. Inspector general report that declining to prosecute him but then excoriating him for terrible judgment terrible decisions. That's essentially what he did when it came to hillary clinton in two thousand sixteen isn't it. The company has infuriated both sides. He's done something pretty extraordinary. The democrats <hes> despise him and the republicans despise them although they had their moments but it's <hes> you know he is. He read his book. He's a man who believes he is deeply. Ethical who thinks he is always doing the right thing thinks he's doing the right thing for his country and you know he thought at the time when he i mean he thought of the time when he had that press conference about hillary that there just wasn't the material to to indict her but but he had to not be political and criticize her and it just blew up in his face and he will always be a part of history in that twenty six thousand election and they will always be a debate a debate with the hillary ranks. It's about whether how much he cost her the election. They believe he was a major factor. There is much to discuss on this topic much relating to it but i do want to jump to a different subject very very quickly elizabeth because we have you here in your paper. Tonight is reporting some interesting news out of the white house that the president's personal assistant has abruptly stepped down. Tell us about what you know here well. I'm not going to tell you more than what we have. In the story which is that there were some issues at bedminster and that is all we can report right now a better. She's been there since day one. She's been a very loyal lieutenant but she is now l. out at the white house that is all i can tell you a story that she had spoken at an off the record dinners that that's what we reported miller jeremy bash frank figliuzzi. Thank you and coming up the next target in the republicans push back on the russia investigation and later numbers likely keeping mitch mcconnell up at night. The eleventh hour just getting started on a thursday night. I want to know when is barack obama going to be interviewed by john durham and the f._b._i. Do you believe that will happen. I believe it will tumbling in fact there is no way you can finish this investigation without <music> out interviewing the former president of the united states that his former u._s. attorney in fox news mainstay joe digenova just a short while ago on fox news. Some supporters of president trump are now turning their attention to what president obama knew about the early stages of the russia investigation during an interview last night before for the release of today's report senator lindsey graham chairman of the senate judiciary committee said it's a question that he wants answered struck in page page referred to the white house wanting to know every detail. Does that mean that barack obama the president at the time should be asked what he knew and when he knew what about all this. I can't imagine an investigation of the republican nominee for president counterintelligence investigation of his his campaign was not approved at the highest level. The question for me is who told obama and when you find out who that person is you begin to put the puzzle together. You'd think he he needs to be questioned. Sir under oath absolute mccabe call me all of them brennan and clapper. Did you ever inform president obama about the counterintelligence investigation would did you tell him. When did you tell them yes. I'd like to know what president obama thought auto about the investigation. Why did not somebody tell trump. The whole point of a counterintelligence investigation is to protect people still with us elizabeth miller jeremy bash frank figliuzzi frank. I i wanna get your reaction to what we just played from lindsey graham there. He's basically saying this counterintelligence probe launched in the summer of two thousand sixteen about potential ties between folks in the trump campaign and russia he saying that had to have president bama's knowledge and apparently sign off. What's your reaction to that so so he also said that the whole point quote of a counterintelligence investigation is is to protect people. It's to protect. The united states is what the point of a counterintelligence investigation is not to protect the president and so would a counterintelligence investigation involving russian meddling and interference with a presidential campaign briefed to the white house. You bet you bet and guess what it all played out. In the indictments of a couple of dozen russian operatives including russian intelligence officers who did did mess with our election process so i'm all for interviewing barack obama and my guess is he'll say i was briefed that the russians were trying to interfere with this election election now remember that trump's name got added later to the investigation by andrew mccabe once additional conduct was obvious to the the public and by that time barack obama may have been out of the picture but by all means go ahead and interview the president but you gotta get it right a counterintelligence investigation protects. The people knocked president well so jeremy bashing lindsey graham has the ability runs the judiciary committee in the senate. He has the ability ready to pursue this. What would that look like these questions. He's raising these names. He's introducing including barack obama if he's going to pursue an investigation like this. What's that gonna look like. I mean let let me get this straight so they want president obama to speak under oath but they were fine when donald trump president trump didn't speak under oath to bob mueller. I don't understand that but putting putting that aside on the issue that that the senator is is raising that joe digenova was raising is whether or not the original russia investigation gatien was predicated not factual basis to believe that number one russia was seeking to interfere in the election and number two whether or not there were any individuals associated with a presidential campaign who somehow knew about it or benefiting from it or somehow welcomed it and i think we now know from the bob muller investigation that in fact we do know that russia did interfere that that interference was of benefit to the trump campaign and that it was welcomed and and that in some important respects it has been rewarded and so i think the investigation as to whether or not this was all well predicated should proceed because i think it will find that in fact it was as well predicate. I'm just curious if you're familiar with how these congressional investigations work lindsey graham is saying he wants to get the former president barack obama under oath. He's mentioning other names brennan and clapper. So when do you think realistically that's going to happen. I don't know i don't know of any president precedent of a former president speaking to congress in that fashion but again i i'm not sure where this investigation leads. I think will all lead us right back to the original intelligence committee assessment of january twenty seventeen which may clear clear exactly what russia did elizabeth. This is also one of those moments where i think you think back to the molar report the reactions to it to almost completely different sprint narratives one belonging to the democratic controlled house. The other belonging to the republican controlled senate. You see the republicans in the senate pursuing the kind of investigation that lindsey graham a._m. Is outlining while the democrats in the house have what jerry nadler the chair of the judiciary committee and that says already is an impeachment inquiry. Just couldn't be an opposite more opposite places right. I'm not sure where the republicans want to go with this. You know polls have consistently shown that the voters out there are not were not very interested the russia investigation when when mother was in the middle of it <hes> it's it's. It's i down. It's an issue. Perhaps they went to revive it. They think it might be a winning campaign issue for them but i don't see where this goes. I agree with jeremy that you investigate the origins of the russian investigation and you will find that there was a lot of a lot of information out there. There was even in the mullahs report. You see how many context there were between trump associates and russians during the campaign <hes> you know they're the muller was never able to prove that there was collusion that they worked together in a conspiracy to try and swing the election into donald trump but there were an awful lot of contacts so i'm not exactly sure what the republicans would find here other than that. There was a lot of reason to open an investigation and again. I don't see i guess they think this works for them politically but right now the big issues out on the campaign are as we all know the economy you you know perhaps a coming recession jobs and again. I think this is <hes>. I'm not sure what the goal here is other than just a muddy the waters moore all right elizabeth miller jeremy bash frank lucy. Thank you for joining us and coming up for residents are emptying store shelves ahead of hurricane dorian. The latest just stunned that strengthening storm is headed eleventh-hour continues. Florida's governor has expanded a state of emergency tonight to include his entire state. Hurricane dory is expected to make landfall there by monday. Possibly sibley as a powerful category for storm officials are warning residents up in down. The state's eastern coast to get ready in the president has cancelled a planned trip to poland roland over the weekend to oversee the federal response to door in. This video released a short time ago shows. The size of storms was captured by the crew aboard the international space the station when they passed over earlier today in an update on the storms projected path was released just a few minutes ago so we're gonna bring in our meteorologist bill cairns bill well. What is the very latest here. The very latest and i'm going to try to put a positive spin on this because right now three to four days from a possible landfall direct impacts to hurricane forecast i just read and just got done briefed on is about the worst case possible scenario now he's saying. Why is that good news because i'm glad it's not tomorrow because then it would just be as dire as possible could be hopeful that this will change in the next three to four days so let me explain now we're up to one hundred and five mph winds dory's now to a category two. We've known all all along. There's not much to stop it from getting much more intense. It could be a major category three by tomorrow. It could be a category four by the time we get to say friday or even into the saturday so here's new forecast path. We know it's going to be this big bad intense storm wherever it hits it's gonna do catastrophic wind damage though the storm surge problems everything that comes with a big huge storm just like we've seen in the last couple of years with eras in the maria is also last year with michael so the hurricane center has it takes two to three and and then by the time we get to sunday night through the northern bahamas notice. It's a little further south. They shifted it about twenty miles to the south now coming on shore just north of west palm beach as a category four which is still those before but one hundred and forty mile per hour winds and the problem the biggest issue is i measured the distance between this point here and here that's two hundred fifteen miles. It's possible that this storm could approach the coastline at about four to five miles per hour a category four storm. That's never happened before. We're usually there up around eight nine ten miles primary fifteen. That's an extremely slow moving storm and those have multiple high tide cycle issues. They have rainfall issues not to mention that those high winds in the same locations over a long period of time have more stress on the rooftops in the structures and the trees and everything else in in its way so from here on out over the next forty eight hours. We have no land in the way so we're just gonna be watching our computer models. This is one of the latest batch they come out every six hours. We'll katina eighteen to see what the trends are. Hurricane center has the forecast down here you notice our models have trended that way. You look at this. One even does stall it. There is a possibility at least that if this storm continues to go even slower that just maybe we can weaken the ridge enough to the north that one of these squiggly lines can happen and take place where it kind of stalls out a little bit. Maybe it's near the coast scares it and then kind of wiggles itself offshore that would be the best case scenario. It's unlikely right right now but it's not zero percent you notice most of the lines on our american vessels do come right across the florida peninsula and even a few would bring it back here into areas as of the northeastern gulf now our european computer models are most reliable long-term model. This is what we got this afternoon. We'll get a new one of these that will come out about two to three o'clock in the morning think it'll be a lot of meteorologist will be staying up emergency managers to see what it does but this one would it did it takes it down towards west palm beach and then rakes it right up the florida coastline so we'll wait and see steve. If with that model does again this one will be coming out about every twelve hours or so and that's all we can do right now. It's too early for hurricane watches watches. It's too early for the warnings. It's too early for the evacuation orders. It's just get prepared when those orders come. You don't wanna move out quickly well. You got my attention there with one thing he said. I just want to ask you about you. You said you have never seen a storm moving in potentially as slowly as this one four miles an hour. I guess that's about half the speed you're saying maybe we have had storms that have stalled out before and we've had storms that have smaller weaker storms instead of stalled right near the coast. I mean just look what happened in the houston area with a stalled out storm. You know fifty sixty inches of rain. We've had that before what i've never seen before is the forecast for one hundred and forty mph cat four to stall out and move on shore that slowly performing andrew was much faster than that the labor day storm way way back when was fast faster than trying to think of some of the big huge category four and five i mean michael last year was faster than that. Camille was faster than that. I mean i've never really seen this powerful of a predicted predict storm do this again. It could change in. I don't see what's going to speed it up. These storms are steered by big huge areas of high pressure. Sometimes sometimes they're influenced by cold fronts. We called tross. There's very weak steering pattern for this storm so it's moving pretty well and pretty quickly and then it's gonna slow slowdown slow down and maybe stall out or just drift across the florida peninsula so that's just not just brings in so many multiple problems problems especially if you have a major hurricane prolonged winds hit prolonged hide multiple high tide cycles and then you know about seventy or eighty percent of fatalities are from water so we get the storm surge and the problem with all that heavy rain with a slow moving storm. I know florida's got sandy soil but if you get a storm that moves this slowly through the florida florida peninsula i mean flooding will be a huge epic problem well into next week. So as i said earlier the eleven o'clock update it was one of the worst case scenarios that you could possibly have for anywhere a anywhere in the world for a hurricane landfall but we have three days the change just quickly because this is really not what i was necessarily expecting. I've watched the forecast get worse and worse over. The last few days. I mean is there. Hopefully hopefully it gets better. Is there a scenario where this could even get worse. Though are the only thing that would be worse was if it got up to category five in right now it's supposed to be one hundred and forty forty mile per hour to get to a cat five and has to get over one fifty five another fifteen really isn't that big of a deal with low shear environment extremely warm mm-hmm water temperatures along the way. There's really not much stop it. There's some dry air around the storm that may interrupted here or there but if it got to a cat five and it surprised me or anyone else no but right now they're saying possibility of a good size cat for right on the florida coastline and come labor day afternoon and evening if that's the case and that's scenario and this forecast holds true just to let everyone know the timing of course and all of a sudden. You were further south don all along the coast here yesterday. We're at the space coast earlier today. We were down the indian river in vero beach and now we shifted down towards west pob. We're talking about some huge population asian centers that are going to have to make some hard calls with evacuations in a you know we're about twenty twenty four about forty eight hours away from a huge huge mass evacuation order. If this forecast holds true all right bill cairns we will look forward to the next update in hope. There's been a change for the better thank you. We appreciate dad for it and coming up. It is the other big political drama of twenty twenty who ends up controlling the senate head over to the big. Show you which raises to watch when you live in power comes tmz right-back all right almost every day. It seems i am right here at this board talking about the presidential race. The twenty twenty campaign for president has been but tonight. We're going to talk about one of the other major races. One of the other major series of races in twenty is not just the presidential race remember also the house and and the senate and there was some big news this week big news just yesterday on the senate front come from the state of georgia republican johnny isakson he announced yesterday. He's gonna be resigning from the senate in just a couple months at the end of this year. He's going to be resigning for health reasons that means immediately. That seat will be filled by an appointment. The governor of georgia roger who of course is a republican brian. Kemp is going to appoint somebody the seat when isaac's steps down presumably that will be a republican but it also triggers a special election. It's gonna take place next year. It's going to coincide with a normally scheduled november election so this senate seat and whoever is appointed by the governor probably will be up in two thousand twenty and for democrats. That's interesting news because georgia state they have been starting to look a little more closely at as a potentially competitive state in two thousand twelve is this was a safely republican statement. Romney won this by eight points. That margin came down in two thousand sixteen came down to five points in two thousand eighteen democrats weren't able to win statewide but they got close. They got within about fifty thousand votes in the governor's race. This is a state. We're demographics are changing pretty. Substantially also were suburbs particularly around atlanta china. Maybe moving more and more away from the republican party of donald trump. That's a major factor so democrats have been looking at georgia. Maybe in the presidential race maybe when it comes to the u._s. Senate this could be an opportunity for them in twenty twenty and by the way is means is gonna be two shocks for democrats george because david purdue the other republican senator from georgia. He is up for reelection in twenty twenty. It's going to be two senate elections. In georgia in twenty twenty in of course the significance and we talk about the battle for senate control republicans go into twenty twenty leading fifty three forty seven. What does that mean democrats. They need a net gain of three. If they win the presidency remember the vice president breaks anytime in the senate. If the democrats win the presidency democratic vice president breaks the tie in the senate but if trump gets reelected democrats would need a net gain of four seats to control the senate so neck and three for democrats if they win the presidency colorado. This is a state. It's a major target for them already main. Why do we have these two highlighted. These are the two republican senators who are up twenty twenty in states that hillary clinton one in twenty-six either electric already rejected trump clinton one colorado the clinton one main republican senators running for reelection these places in twenty twenty democrats think these are probably some of the most vulnerable republican senators up so if democrats could pick those was to up that would move them close to twenty some other places democrats are looking arizona state. They think they have a shot in the presidential race. Martha mcsally isn't appointed incumbent incumbent john cornyn in texas. You saw how close baidoa roar about three points in two thousand sixteen tom tillerson north carolina another state trump won it but a close state democrats think there could be a combination but the thing they have to be careful for is there are some vulnerable democrats. Really there is one extremely vulnerable democrat member number doug jones doug. Jones won that special election in alabama against roy moore at the end of twenty seven. This is a state that donald trump is probably going to be winning by twenty twenty five five thirty points tough tough tough for a democrat to win in a presidential election in the state of alabama. We will see though but that one is a very very possible republican republican pickup it would mean democrats win another one somewhere else to make up for it. Also you could think you can't see him on the board here. Republicans might take a look at new hampshire. Jeanne shaheen running running for reelection near trump lost that state by about three thousand votes in two thousand sixteen theoretically. There's minnesota. Tina smith is up there. Trump lost their by two and a half points in two thousand sixteen extended. Tina smith did very well facing the voters. They're just last year so a couple. Opportunities made me for republicans but the bottom line. We bring all this up. There was big news in georgia this week the senate front and it's a reminder for all the talk about the presidential race whoever wins the president see their ability to get their agenda through their ability to get people confirmed for major post. The supreme court depends who controls the u._s. Senate major story where to keep a close eye coming up what is really at stake in twenty twenty. We're back after this what if there were justices elected by five justices vibe pumpkins and those tend in five independent the i i they steal a supreme court seat then they turn around and change the rules on filibuster on a supreme court see and so when swings back around to us. What are we going to do and my answer on that is all the options are on the table. The reform not just expanding the number of members but doing it in a way where some of them are selected on a consensus nonpartisan basis. It's very promising way to do it. Well some twenty twenty candidates are floating the idea of changing changing the makeup of the supreme court move they could make if democrats take control of the senate and the white house and it's something that majority leader mitch mcconnell is warning against he his fellow republicans took the rare step of writing a letter to the supreme court in it. They warned that the court quote must not be cowed by the threats of opportunistic politicians titians calling the democrats playing direct immediate threat to the independence of the judiciary in the rights of all americans here to talk about all of this michael steele former chairman one of the republican national committee and amber phillips reporter for the washington post political blog the fixed michael. Let me ask you about this. I'm not sure writing a letter to the supreme court what you're expecting expecting the supreme court at turnaround read this as a politically motivated action here. Let's try to decipher what the political motivation is. Is it trying aim to offer motivation potentially to what they call. Those reluctant trump voters folks who might like republicans more than democrats but don't like donald trump sure away. I guess or an idea to sort of put something in front of the court to say. You know we'd take this very seriously. The <hes> the president has been very successful at pudding too conservative. Justice are justices on the bench and i think for the base. That's a certainly a big big kudos for that so this is just a reminder that republicans are thinking about the court as they have been as you know steve for well over twenty years the democrats are late to this conversation and of course they're coming to the conversation talking about oh. We want to add five independence american people. That's not what this is about. This is about whoever's sitting in the white house having the senate of their party in power. That's where the play is. In all of these other amac nations are just typical noise from the democrats and the subject matter that confuses the public they roll their eyes and they move on whereas on the republican side side. They know exactly what this is about. This is about taking those nine justices and getting seven out of seven out of those nine on your side. That's the politics. The republicans things have been better at it because they've been focused on it for a longer time. The democrats are coming toward again talking about it. In a way this confused the hell out of everybody yeah amber. I wonder what michael describing your sense of if whether that's changing and maybe how that's changing on the democratic side talking about his situation here we're democratic voters watch democratic activists vis watched in two thousand sixteen as mitch mcconnell in the senate held that supreme court seat open trump got elected trump was able to appoint a republican to fill it then the whole oh cavenaugh drama last year. How has that changed. How democrats are approaching this now. I think exactly right to take this moment and go all the way back to two thousand sixteenth seed because what i hear from democrats is that merrick garland seat that got held before the election woke democrats up from the base is on up to lawmakers and said oh my gosh to michael's point we've been losing at this game of focusing on the judicial branch of government how we can reshape government government and win at politics there and then the cavenaugh fights cemented that activism of course democrats are still trying to figure out what that that means for them as a party and that's where i think you have these twenty twenty democratic presidential candidates come in and say why don't we have an open conversation about something that it hasn't been done in centuries. It's really reflection of how democrats have not been focusing on the court for so long and are now at risk of being out of power <hes> the balance of power the supreme court for years. Maybe even a generation depending on more retirements in the trump era that they're having this conversation relation of like wait a second. We might lose it all right now. Let's turn this this once radical idea to pack the court talking about the senate of course that does the <hes> has all these confirmation battles when it comes to the supreme court at amber. You're writing about georgia. We were talking about that just a minute ago to senate races in georgia next year now to opportunities attorney potentially for democrats but the biggest name democrat lately out of the state of georgia stacey abrams has already taken herself out of the mix. Tell us what's going on. There and the democratic critics say why she's not running and who they might turn to stacey abrams who of course ran for governor and really showed democrats that georgia can i'm be competitive. <hes> almost immediately as open seat came out this week said nope. I'm not gonna run. Thanks guys it sounds more and more this is my interpretation like she has her eye on being a potential vice presidential nominee depending who wins the nomination so that leaves democrats with is a seat in georgia. That looks is competitive. They feel like it's trending their way quicker than they realized but not a very thick bench of candidates with which to choose from they they have a couple of candidates already running in a primary. Excuse me in a primary challenge senator david purdue <hes> with stacey abrams didn't even want to enter that race when they thought that was the only georgia senate race going. They're not really sure who else they can pick from and republicans. I talked to say that's what makes them feel secure that they're going to hold old one. If not both seats here michael we saw in two thousand eighteen interesting dynamic when it came to house races in the midterm election bluewave forty seat gain in for the democrats when it came to the senate republicans actually made game. They're just it had to do with the type of states. I think and i applaud your how you see that dynamic playing out in twenty twenty. Do you think thank you see more of the same or do you look at that map and say democrats have more opportunity there well. The conventional wisdom is that the republicans their their waterloo if you will politically in terms of the senate doesn't come for two years later and potentially if you have donald trump's sitting in the white house for a second term. That's where you kind of see the bloodletting in the second term of a president but i think what's happened is the conventional wisdom steve is turned on its head a little bit particularly with what we just talk about about the transformation of the landscape politically in georgia where now the democrats have a chance to go after two seats their problem. They have no bench so republicans rightly. You sit there and go okay well. You guys figure that out. Meanwhile mitch mcconnell is doing the lockdown on a number of other key states including out there with senator mkx sally where mark kelly is being is running a fairly competitive race right now now. It's early still but the republicans are looking at this because in one sense says you probably know steve it could be a bellwether for for some of the more sweeping changes that potentially could come for the senate in two thousand six two two thousand twenty if the dims are able to align their nominee with the country in a way that expands their base of opportunities ladies and i don't mean in terms of more democrats necessarily voting but independent center-right republicans also who coming out not to support trump but then also like in the idea of giving the senate to the democrats. That's the sweet spot. I think they're trying to go for right now with no bench and a lot out of open holes. It's going to be tough all right michael steele amber phillips.

Dems ratchet up impeachment investigation on hush payments

"Thanks to you at home for joining us and also my thanks to dancing who filled in while. I was out last week and tonight. We have a full show that includes some developing news with new video showing doing hurricane dorian destruction. You see these horrific images nearly every building there has been flattened to pieces the category five hurricane state over the bahamas for two days. It's left at least five dead. That number is expected to rise the prime minister lamenting this as a historic tragedy as dorian approaches the florida coast. I can tell you that later tonight tonight on this hour n._b._c. Meteorologist bill karen's will give us an update with everything. You need to know here stateside also later tonight on the beat. We have a report on. How donald trump is making you ooh. The american taxpayer subsidized his hotels also new breakthroughs in the gun safety battle including heat on mitch mcconnell. Neil cacho is here on that later but our top story tonight right now is this new intensity and congressional opposition to trump including developments in a probe that some democrats say could actually change the future of the trump presidency democrats in congress are now preparing for what will be their last major legislative session before all eyes turn of course to the twenty twenty race next year and now i can tell you they're outlining a new way. They want to check president trump now. The context here is something you know about something you know from your calendar. Summer is over when democrats left for the summer recess the members in their caucus calling for impeachment. We're in the minority now. They are the majority of the democratic caucus which may explain why congressional democrats are pushing these newly aggressive probes into some admittedly familiar topics investigative hearings on hush money payments that donald trump made back in two thousand sixteen now. Let's break it down as we try to do around here really clearly the knowledge of those payments. That's not new the knowledge college. They were illegal. That isn't new either michael. Cohen famously went to jail for that months ago. What's new is democrats saying they could actually reach an indictable edible crime by the president trump as a co conspirator so what is new about that well basically the aggressiveness by at least some house democrats zero zero in on what they call their criminal and what is in their view impeachable acts which can be publicly pinned on donald trump. How do you pin something on trump when he has been obviously stonewalling. So many of these probes will the news tonight. Here is democrats saying that some of these crimes are effectively different for any impeachment style pro because they involve evidence from before donald trump became president that means no executive privilege claims can hide the underlying evidence or testimony do again as i'm saying pin this on the president democrats say these new hearings could come as soon as october house judiciary chair nadler already saying they've started formal impeachment proceedings and this is the framework that speaker pelosi. We'll have to address. We'll have to basically contend with as she returns to washington with some constituents who've been demanding she and her party you go further support impeachment inquiry one that is already already going on. It's it's happening. The lifetime achievement award ceremony is quickly interrupted with people holding impeach. Now signs ain't now. I think we owe it to every american to find out what happened and make a judgment at the time but isn't extremely high bar it is now one hundred and thirty four democrats as i mentioned the majority of the caucus that are on board and want to get back to the impeachment business when congress comes comes back into session. I'm joined by joyce vans and dunkin levin former federal prosecutors and antioch smith leading civil rights lawyer. We should know represented a fox news reporter who wanted to be released from an n._d._a. To report on this same story regarding the hush payments by donald trump to stormy daniels joyce. Do you see anything new coming here in this strategy. I don't think it'll be new are a bit. I think it might be fresh because the real question in here is who will hold this president who's been notoriously teflon like accountable. It may be too little too late. That's frankly what a lot of people think think about this strategy but by circumventing the white house's constant full court press against subpoenas by going back to pre election activity where they can subpoena witnesses and acquire documents the democrats may come up with the narrative. The american people will finally get to see in full will and may find compelling and dunkin. Is you know this is a legalistic thing but it's not strictly illegal because we're talking about congress acting in its capacity under the constitution to do what amounts to the indictment of president when they decided to impeach if they ever do and this is something speaker. Pelosi is obviously as i mentioned in balancing. She is the key decision maker on that piece of for context. This is how she sounded before this week before things hit the majority already caucus as we're calling it. Take a look if a majority of caucus caucus wants to go with an impeachment inquiry. Would you go for it. It's not it's not even close in our caucus but eventually you know. Why are we speculating on hypotheticals. Dunkin hypothetical apathetically season is over. She does have this whether it's winded her back or pressure coming out or depending on how you put it. How does that affect in your view. The balancing of whatever evidence democrats have if they wanna go forward. Well look. I mean in addition to the political aspects of it. There are some legal aspects of it and there's one new thing coming out of this which is something that we wouldn't really know if the associated press and other press outlets hadn't tried to go ahead and get the unredacted search warrants from the michael cohen search warrant and what we know now now because of what this associated press did is at the southern district of new york is not going to go forward with an investigation into anymore campaign finance violations and the reason that's significant is that we know other people were involved. Michael cohen did not act alone in fact the indictment itself charges a conspiracy. We know if we can put that together. Gather with michael collins congressional testimony that individual one is named in the indictment is the president of the united states. We know that hush money payments that were routed through through the trump organization. We're re characterized as legal payments. When in fact there was no retainer. There were legal services. We know that these things happened and we know that other people were involved and yet the southern district of new york just dropped inquiry in the middle of the night in the dark in fact wasn't going to say a word to anybody until the associated press move forward with its lawsuit lawsuit for the search warrant and so as a result of that this has come to light and frankly the department of justice does not oh any answers to us about why they want to not charge somebody but but in cases where of great significance the department of justice has actually explained its decisions and why it doesn't want to charge people obviously it's the most famously jim komi announcing why they weren't going to charge hillary clinton with the email scandal but in addition to that more recently the u._s. attorney in brooklyn made a decision made an announcement about not charging daniel pantaleo. Who's the officer who put eric garner chokehold june kim who is the acting u._s. Attorney in the southern district district of new york making an announcement in two thousand seventeen about not charging bill de blasio for campaign finance violations so we know that in certain cases the department of justice will actually actually make an announcement about why they don't charge people. They're hardly could be a case of more national significance in this case so there are honestly i think a lot the people who are following the case closely are just left scratching their heads and then there's a question about whether other people can fill that void so let me bring in let me bring nancy what's. He was shaking her head. Go ahead well. I just think that it's really important to fill in the void the attorney general who's obviously very enamored with trump interfere with that investigation investigation and do the american people have a right to know the whole story we know some of the evidence they have because my client got was subpoenaed and we turned over a a lot of evidence about what trump knew about paying off a porn star days before the election in order to affect the election and i think it's it's important that some of the people who have been subpoenaed to this this hearing in front of congress are pecker dylan howard people who who know ooh about what they knew and what they were willing to pay off. Is this an illegal campaign contribution. The entire fox news organization is an illegal trump campaign contribution contribution in my view but they chose to kill the story days before the election. That's gonna come out in these hearings and the american people should know that fox viewers should know that it's really important right now for the truth to finally be told trump has lied about this so many times so frequently that we can't just say oh well. They live about everything. Why should we talk about this. We should talk about it. All every every aspect of it needs to be brought to the american public here nancy i will i will say in all seriousness sirius' and fairness to fox news. They have a lot of opinion that may look like endorsing trump but they have every right under the first amendment to go forward and share that. I don't think that legally is a campaign contribution. I think you're speaking to the narrower point of whether there were deals made that were explicitly benefit campaign which is different to give you a chance a follow up on that and you respond to that and also curious. Will we hear from your client through this hearing as well well. My client has has briefed the committee so i don't know whether she's going to be asked to appear yet or not. The organization presents itself as a news organization and and then makes a decision not to run clearly for important news days before the election about the president not only paying off a porn star to keep her quiet eh but lying about it to the american people through the press that to me is an illegal campaign contribution killing that story days before an election action in order to mislead the american public in favor of a candidate and my client will testify what what was said to her about murdoch's preferences when and she was told that her story was being killed and this day fox is telling us that she didn't have the story hopefully now the american public will see what she had one. That's that's very interesting choice. I wanna double this back to congress. A lot of people at home. Watching are saying okay. We've heard about some of these problems. Why is this what congress and the democrats are coming back to hear when they when they come back from recess as the impeachment caucus grows and part of it is the strange saga of michael cohen and i really wonder what you think now that we've taking it all in it would be hard for people to understand at the beginning of this or if you saw this is a movie how much ended up landing on mr cohen shoulders including one of the longer sentences affiliated with the probe of course it was handed off to new york when he basically apparently did a lot of what was asked of him i to help up trump some of which he later confessed to illegally and then what was asking me about the congress for context we put together for your now says joyce. What donald trump said he basically said had to use a common phrase. You better ask somebody better. Ask michael cohen and ultimately the congress did here was that condensed story and he asked me to pay off an adult film star with whom he had an affair he was concerned with the effect that it had had on the campaign he knew about everything. What would you say to critics of. This strategy on the democratic excited that after everything that's happened and many many months after michael cohen did give his in-person testimony. There's circling back to this stuff well to be fair. Michael cohen is a convicted felon convicted in part because of untruthful conduct some no prosecutor and no congressional committee would rely lie solely on his testimony move forward but that said our it's important to remember that federal prosecutors stood up in the courthouse in manhattan and essentially sensually charged the president of the united states with being an unnamed an unindicted co-conspirator in michael collins conduct and we have still not heard that full story. What was the evidence that that was based on in fullness. What were they thinking about and who else was involved. We know that there are members of the trump organization at least one john who became cooperators for the government we don't know the extent of that cooperation or what resulted from it so i think for critics who are talking about what is a political argument that this comes to light or maybe a substance argument that it's all gone over in the past and people already know the details. There is still as i started out by staying fresh information that can be obtained here. The real question is whether congress will be able to obtain it when trump has successfully grown up roadblocks and so many other areas if they succeed this could be compelling evidence of the president's criminality and the real question will be does the american public care or is it all baked baked in at this point right. Is it overly bacon and you lay it out there as as you often do so clearly for us a reminder they're all donald trump certainly has been caught lying about undoing many many obviously suspicious things. This is the one case in one part of the country where the feds actually said here's the evidence he's connected to a crime that does make this case different than others. We'll be watching joyce fans dunkin levin nancy erica. Thanks to each of you thank you. We have a lot more in today's show. Mike pence taking foreign trip to trump's golf course at your expense walmart with a big change on guns after the latest mass shooting. We actually have the store employees who is part of leading that fight on the beat tonight very important that's later and then how donald trump got back check on hurricane dorien by his own administration while oh he was golfing and later update from bill cairns with more about where this storm is headed. I'm already melbourne. You're watching the beep on m._s._n. This episode is brought to you by cox with contour t._v. From cox you can find all your favorites all in one place it does it have the a youtube you bet what about that net flicker thing netflix and other superhero movies to her has all the latest titles on demand. Oh my the grand kids love that big green guy. I prefer the one with the hammer myself okay. I think we're done here now. Get all your favorite apps cbs chosen movies right on contour t._v. From cox the trump administration is billing you the taxpayer for vice president. Mike pence is stay at a trump property and ireland all thanks to a heavy-handed suggestion attention from president trump this chance to take dollars in the u._s. Treasury and put them in trump's pockets looks especially desperate tonight because the golf club in question is a whopping lopping hundred and eighty miles away from pence's government metex which is a bit like getting a hotel in boston to go to a government meeting in new york and all this comes after trump lobbied for the g. seven summit to use his struggling durao resort in florida for its next meeting. This is not normal. It's also not what donald trump promised in his do you remember this very first press conference as president-elect when he claimed he would be hands off management and his sons would take his businesses and run them professionally aw my two sons who are right here. Don and eric are going to be running the company. They are going to be running it in a very professional manner. They're not going to discuss it with me. These papers are just some of the many documents that that i've signed turning over complete and total control now tonight the blowback on donald trump's latest efforts to subsidize acidifies his own companies is actually strong enough that vice president mike pence is out on defense the opportunity to stay at trump national indian beg to accommodate the unique footprint that comes with our security detail and other personnel made it logical that unique footprint as we're reporting to you tonight includes one hundred and eighty miles of footprint and that's why this is obviously a logical even kind kind of embarrassingly so pence doesn't have any better arguments and he's not alone in what he's up to. Have you heard about this yet. Attorney general bar now plowing thirty thirty thousand dollars into a lavish holiday party at donald trump's d._c. Hotel and the career official who actually ran the ethics department during the trump administration the earlier last year says all of this is sending signals that bars loyalty is to trump and not to the country we turn now to an ethics guru you may recognize the one and only richard painter former chief white house ethics attorney under the republican administration of george w bush first of all nice to have you back sir. Thank you very much. I'm thrilled to be back with you. Yes sir. This is not normal. The arguments of mr pence's making aching. Don't pass any kind of test. We just showed and the things that mr bar is doing walnut again. Technically illegal do appear to be so basically blinking red ethics violations. How does this compare to anything you saw in your tenure in government. What should be done about it. It's sat regis and they think it's illegal doll vegas's illegal <hes>. Let's start with the vice president's day. The united states taxpayers paying for that. The federal government is going to make a big outlay in order to promote the trump hotel trump will make money when secret service agents stay there also the promotion value. Our money is being used to promote his hotel. This is a violation of the domestic commandments close which caps the president's compensation for his services at his compensation set by congress. He is not entitled to milk the the taxpayer right left and center and that's what he's doing here. This is illegal as well as immoral and illogical attorney bar barr now. He's we'll let let me. I've got a slight a slight tape delay my fault wanna get to bar. Let me play for you. A little more from what i i do. Think is an important test. Everyone remember which is donald trump. Is it only failing the ethics. He's obviously failing the promises. He made in his very first press conference as president-elect when he had his money on his mind. Take a look. I could actually run my business could actually run my business and run government at the same time. I don't like the way that looks but i would be able to do that. If i wanted to. Be the only one that will be able to do that. You can't do that in any other capacity but as a president i could run the trump organization great great company and i could run the company i country. I do very good job but i don't wanna do that. Richard response to that <hes> by today's facts and what you wanted to get in about mr bar. That's exactly what he's doing. He's running the trump organization. He's trying. I wanna make the trump organization richer and he's using his official position as president of the united states do that and he is enriching himself in violation of the constitution which was sticks fixes compensation. He has no right to do that with our monte attorney general bars using his own money so it's not a tax payer issue but there's a gift rule. You're not allowed. Gotta give a gift to your superior in the government worth more than ten dollars. You can't take your boss out to lunch unless alleged cost less than ten bucks attorney general bars because it's been thirty thousand dollars a trump hotel. Having his so-called holiday party were invites his rich friends to schmooze people in the trump administration or wherever else there is a thirty thousand thousand dollar outlay. You could bet the profits that are a lot more than ten bucks. That's going right in the back pocket of donald trump as a violation of the gift rules and the attorney general of the united states is the highest ranking law enforcement officer in dotted states. He should be ashamed himself. He should resign having even suggested that and donald trump shouldn't take the gift tough words on some some issues that are really out here wide open. I mean brazenly wide open. Richard painter always appreciate your perspective on the program sir. Thank you very much. Thanks for having me thank you. We'll have you back. Oh we've got a lot more in the show as i was mentioning when we came on the air tonight including including neil cacho coming up but as promised we have a brief update on the story that of course has consumed so many this destruction wrought by hurricane dorian new aerial footage. What is you're looking at. Here are the avocado islands in the bahamas showing all of the problems the water canvassing the entire island. The storm was hovering over the bahamas for about two days. Five live dead. This is a category two at this point in time it's nearing the southeastern coast of florida before we move on to other topics in the show as promised an update from meteorologist meteorologist bill cairns with n._b._c. news bill. We're watching the storm closely. It's still right on about eighty miles off the east coast of florida the heaviest bands now rotating in closer to the coast and this'll be the peak of the storm for areas from volusia county southwards the indian river the palm bay area fort pierce jupiter again windy conditions almost like a tropical storm was right on top you even though the hurricane is off the coast as far as the wind speeds go read one hundred ten miles per hour to category two but if it goes up just a tiny bit more it would be a category three if it's still a very powerful the storm is just you know the perspective that was one time one hundred and eighty five makes it seem that much weaker but this could do a lot of damage it was to move on shore up here in the carolinas and that is the the potential and that's the next question hurricane center has it off dako- safely of georgia and offer florida but that conan still includes charleston georgetown myrtle beach wilmington rightful beach areas up here they're emerald atlantic beach morehead city all of the album or a pinnacle sound region and then heading offshore as we go throughout the day on friday and one of the things that we're going to be watching to is how close does it get to areas like say nova scotia could have a direct impact and also we still have any a target close to the storm but that forecast has actually improved and and one of the things we watch our is our computer model. One of the more accurate ones is our european computer model in the new update just out this afternoon. There's that heavy rain on the florida coast as we go throughout the day tomorrow. Watch the center near savannah and here's charleston. It gets up to this point as we get through wednesday night thursday morning. We're like wow. This is getting close to the coast. We needed to take turn it does but it's very close to areas around georgetown myrtle beach grand strand and then it's an almost over the top of rights ville beach and then just off off the coast here of hatteras so we're not done with this storm just because it's quote unquote weaker it still almost a major major hurricane and they everyone in north carolina eastern portions of the state and south carolina especially at georgetown myrtle beach. You need to be prepared. You could have a direct impact of a category two hurricane and that's it's nothing to sneeze it that would mean power outages for a week or two in some cases flooding problems storm surge to we're not done with this because we're in a little bit of a lull understood food and words to live by especially for those folks down in florida. Thank you bill. There is meanwhile pressure on congress to act on gun. Safety measures the second amendment under the microscope. Nope neil khatau's here for opening arguments when we're back in just thirty seconds. Let's start with a question. How do you know when any gun control pressure out. There is working. If the united states senate blocks most of the attempts to get congress were stacked well tonight. Here's a new sign of some shift. The largest retailer in the united states walmart pulling back on some gun sales in halting ammunition sales for assault style. Oh rifles and handguns and this store across the south and midwest is also drawing a line by banning its own customers from openly carrying when they shop inside inside walmart. The decision comes in the wake of two deadly shootings at walmart stores last month including the shooting at the el paso store which was one of the deadliest mass shootings in american history this weekend. There was another shooting rampage. This time in west texas with seven people killed altogether fifty. Three people have died in just mass shootings. The united states in august alone. Walmarts decision is not only coming from the top either but after what we know from a lot of activism including internal pressure from employees my next guest works for walmart and last month. He sent a petition to the company's c._e._o. Asking for a halt to all of those gun sales eventually got over one hundred forty eight thousand signatures. Thomas marshall joins us now. Thanks for being here high about very happy to have you you've you. You've obviously been part of a a wide group of coordinated group. That's had an impact. What made you do this. What did you learn from it. What do you want to do next definitely well especially after after you know the recent tragedies in el paso south haven we as employees felt that we would no longer be willingly complicit in a company that was continued to make profits off firearms terms and so we really kind of got together in the office and decided to take a stand and we are incredibly grateful and impressed at the direction that walmart has <hes> is now going. You know we were very hopeful but you know obviously this is something that is difficult to change in this country and we're really hoping that this sort of sets a paradigm and a precedent really to help curb this horrible trend of mass shootings and violence in this country when you first started down this path where you worried about your own job definitely definitely and <hes> we did face a little bit of retaliation. However you know down the line. We really believe that <hes> you know this renewed our faith in the company in a way hopefully we we'll see continued and continued advocacy but we're very much impressed by the direction currently going. What do you think about visually initially <hes>. We're very much. I was completely willing to put my job on the line and most of us who are protesting where a lot of pressure coming from on high not to speak out out but were incredibly glad that we did and i feel very proud of having been able to speak out as well and finally i'm wondering about this in the backdrop drop of debates that can be so black and white in america especially with the role of corporations we think about how their address on the campaign trail what was important to you about not just doing doing local political or civic activism but trying to get a company to way and obviously walmart what they do or don't do matters yes yes and walmart is one of the largest retailer in the world and the largest firearms retailers in america and so we're really hoping to take stand within our sphere of influence we as employees toys this company walmart is very receptive to the voice of every employee and that's something that goes back to its founding with sam walton and so we were very much hopeful that they would take our opinions millions into consideration and really hear us out and we're very glad they did the next step of course. Is you know. This is an ongoing problem in this country. There's legislative action. It can be done but we really you know in our sphere of influence with the retailer that is something that really hasn't entered this national conversation that people have to buy these weapons of ammunition from from somewhere even as recently as the mass shooting in florida in the nightclub that killed sixty people those bullets were bought at walmart and now we no longer sell those bullets as of this morning so this is a very very good step but they're great. They're lot greater cultural things that need to change in this country as well hopefully curb this. You know really horrible stem violence and hatred thomas marshall. You've been working on this issue. I think it's a story. That's gonna just a lot of people. We wanted to hear from you directly. Thanks for coming on the beach. Thank you so much for having me. Absolutely i want to turn to the depth of this on the legal side with a friend of ours on this show. You may have noticed in this gun debate that when you ever talk about about gun control you have a lot of people talking about protecting the second amendment. That's almost a backdrop even when people want some change changed the laws. Nobody i wanted to say it again. This is not any in any way a violation of the second thing is. I believe in second amendment. I don't wanna take guns away from law by citizen. No one's going to take away hi. I'm going to protect the second amendment you may have noticed several democrats in that collection of policymaker reaction so what does the second amendment mean gene within the gun control debate legally and factually well as promised we turn to a friend andy constitutional expert in our opening arguments series for we're acting solicitor general neal cacho who's argue if you dozens of cases before the supreme court and let's start with the english sir. What is the second amendment. What does it prevent in this area. Yeah and what are people getting wrong about it. Thank you are because the reason i want to talk about this. After the horrific shootings on al paso is in other places is that the second amendment is being used as as bogeyman obviously it's been around since the bill of rights but the language talks about a well regulated militia and really until two thousand thousand eight throughout american history the second amendment has been about the rights of states to form their own militias not about individuals like you and me to hold a handgun on but in a five to four decision in two thousand and eight justice scalia said the second amendment gives an individual like you and me a right but the most important thing is cajones even justice scalia said it's very limited right the government regulated just as it can regulate all sorts of rights and so just scalise opinion said you can have background checks ex- you can prevent the mentally ill from getting guns you can prevent felons from getting guns prevent domestic abusers from getting guns all sorts of things like that and also he said the type of guns can be restricted so he said that the second amendment was about the right about the guns that were in common use at the time that's as language communists at the time well what was in common use the time things like muskets and the like not grenade launchers and assault weapons and high capacity cartridges and all the stuff that is creating murder and mayhem today so that's the substantive peace now. I want to ask you about the rhetorical strategic piece <hes> which you're quite an expert at this is the opening arguments session and while you're not an adviser necessarily to to any particular gun gun control advocate i wonder what you think in the public realm of the frequency with which <hes> gun control and gun safety advocates democrats who've been more critical on this issue revert to referencing the second amendment because do you think at a certain point it almost reinforces the misperception that a lot of these are second amendment issues when certainly when it comes to limiting say grenade launchers. There's or weapons of war as you say. There's not a lot of case law suggests. The second amendment is even relevant. I actually like with the democrats are doing in the clips. You showed ed because they're saying look. I believe in the second amendment i believe in individual can have a right to a gun but that doesn't mean a gun that can produce mass murder and mayhem and it doesn't mean any individual someone who's mentally ill or something like that shouldn't have gone nor should someone who's under-age and so there are any number of reasonable restrictions that can be imposed totally consistent with the second amendment. The second amendment is being used as a bogeyman to stop sensible gun reform and you know the results are in the streets tweets and their devastating and sat in this country has to do something about it sick and tired of republicans hiding behind the second amendment. Well you lay it out that way. It's something we sadly deal with so much in the newsroom and americans deal sadly so much in their communities in their stores in their schools in their church is basically everywhere somewhere and so there is this slow cruel of what are we going to do about it. If people want to do something about it so appreciate your primer on that before i lose you. I did want to ask you about another. The story that hasn't gotten as much attention but a harvard student who says he was basically denied entry to the united states is now getting to campus as a palestinian student who basically says that he was questioned question for hours at the boston airport last week a border agent searching his phone and laptop and the student now has told harvard's newspaper which has given some life to the story that after five hours they were called into a room and there was screaming. She said she found people. Posting political points of view that opposed the us on this incoming students friends list and then there was basically an officer's effort to cancel initially the students visa. This is one of those stories that goes to the way we live immigration now now. What jumps out to you about it so much out first of all this is a conscious trump policy since june to say that you have to if you're applying for for a visa anywhere in the world you've got a permit you gotta submit your entire social media profile and what the border agents did here is. They said well this student. He didn't do anything anything wrong or say anything wrong but he had some friends on facebook or whatever that said some things that were hostile to the united states and doria can't imagine something more more pernicious and destructive than the idea that we're not gonna let people into this country because we're afraid of what their friends might say or think. I mean our entire. The country's built on the idea that we celebrate debate. We celebrate disagreement. What makes america so awesome is that we want these other people that come in with these ideas about america and convince them that the wrong and have a debate here him out and the like but this is the encapsulation of donald trump's snowflake presidency. He's afraid to have people who disagree or a friend who disagree. I mean this. We don't even know that. The student is agreed and it's getting out of control and i really do think that americans need to stand up for for the proud traditions of look. We're not afraid to have a debate about whether america's great or not <hes> come to this country. We'll have that debate. We're not gonna bar you because has of your friends ideas yeah. It's a very interesting story at one that may not have gotten enough attention yet. Neil cacho thank you as always remind viewers you can go right to m._s._n._b._c. Listen b._c. Dot com slash opening arguments tonight. You can get this segment later night as long as an as well as an archive of neal's work now still ahead after the break donald trump making some bizarre abso- and false statements about hurricane dorian so in confusion and burning a rare fat check from his own administration and update on a new flashpoint in the immigration fight. Donald donald trump's plan to deport immigrants facing severe medical conditions who may have been in the country undocumented. President trump is struggling with the basics. When it comes to hurricane door claiming to monitor the storm over the weekend president was also so seen golfing repeatedly at his club in virginia and he set off a false alarm for alabama residents by incorrectly warning they would quote most likely be hit harder than anticipated disappinted. This was more than a gaffe setting off a panic and derailing resources which maybe why within twenty minutes federal governments national weather service rushed out this unusual unusual correction of the president's saying we repeat no impacts hurricane dorian will be felt across alabama. President has not apologized or retracted acted this mistake now. These are scary for many different reasons but donald trump's critics say it is times like this that underscore the additional yeah no risk the unknown risks of a president who is quite frankly uninterested in many parts of the job and who makes false claims with lives on the line hurricanes are real world potentially catastrophic events treating them as a backdrop for melodramatic spin can backfire and reality can undermine politicians attacks on reality. That's something that if you go back into the archives president bush found after hurricane katrina when his spin about fema doing a great job at the time quickly gave way the reality the fema director ousted the disaster undeniable and then president bush's attempts to calm the nation with the flyover seen around the world you remember that photo you've served illustrate his very distance from reality that president unlike this one later admitted it was a quote huge mistake. We we turned out. Mark thompson the host of the make plain podcast. There's many aspects to this story and our colleagues here. Covering of course what's happening on the ground and everyone's is praying for the best possible outcome but what does it say in a world where donald trump continues to try to define and redefine what's normal that he proactively in baseball it would be era right. He didn't need to weigh in he did in a way <hes> that was so damaging that whoever it fema press sent on that tweet maybe worried about their job but i it should say the national weather service but but felt they had to do well beg the are and of course everyone should be praying for all the past this including those in the bahamas hamas who are being pounded have been pounded for the past twenty four hours. He is totally out of touch with reality he has made a reputation for himself himself and has been enabled by just saying whatever comes to the top of his head no regard for the irresponsibility of his statements to choose mentioned a state being in the path of hurricane when in fact that state is not you're absolutely right would cause a great deal of paddock but he's not he's not a real president and wanted even have the president to decide not to be responsible. The national weather service of course came amounted corrected what was said but you know. I think you and i talked about this. Last time. We were here in the studio together. Sometimes the mainstream media will amplify i would his opponents may do there's a lot of amplification of joe biden's gaffes but what about trump's and this is one that is was very dangerous and could have really impacted people's lives and that comes against the backdrop where it all sort of fought or the washington post has this reporting again about how donald trump used these situations trump administration trying to divert disaster relief funds to border enforcement which of course has prompted an outcry and and then you look at the times reporting on donald trump seeing this as kind of a time to be loud but not be accurate. Mr trump awaited landfall. Oh by assuming the role of the times writes of meteorologist and chief added weatherman style updates to a usual weekend routine of tagging his enemies retweeting bits of praise and critiquing the performance performance of his cable news allies. I suppose the riskier is that it all becomes mixed up in one soup and tuned out rather than people who live in alabama which and this would matter regardless but politically happens to be a state that went heavily for trump people there going wow. I really wish he didn't set off a false alarm here. That's not helpful. I would hope the people of alabama and particularly the voters of alabama would take that tech but i think we all know from time to time. Some people excuse his behavior and it's just just trump being trump. That's just what he does but is not good for anyone also think you know it's one thing to say but it also also speaks to his lack of knowledge even about history and geography. He may actually think alabama is directly on the east coast. I think we ought to consider that just as much we also know this weekend when he was asked about the eightieth commemoration eighty eighty year commemoration of hitler's invasion of poland. He congratulated poland so he says these things. I don't even know if he knew what happened eight years ago. Why would that's not something you congratulate so he clearly does not know anything about any of the topics that he talks about out off the cuff remark. You're putting your finger on it as you often do. We're talking now about the intersection of ignorance and prod autorite. It didn't begin with trump. We have a history the know nothing party that proudly wrapped itself in literally quote knowing nothing but you have that now you have that with people re tweeting. It's all a game. You know a random citizen in florida saying things that aren't true trump saying things that aren't true. He's the president and it all being treated as if a game. It's not a game hurricane hurricane. If ever there were an illustration of that as we know from from this one and from past ones <hes> bar thompson always appreciate you coming on sir. Thank you sir. Thank you for having me thank you. We're gonna fit in a quick break and then an important update to a story. We've been covering here on m._s._n._b._c. on the president's plan to try to deport sick immigrants or there's major backlash glass when we come back update now about how even in this current political era sometimes sometimes yes facts still matter the trump administration is formerly walking back its much criticized plan to deport six immigrants who were supposed to receive lifesaving medical attention in the u._s. This was going to be something they did as a way to punish them for being here unlawfully now officials say they are reversing themselves and will consider applications for these people to stay inside the u._s. The reversal comes after an outcry immigration. Activists lawmakers and families dade denied the program that i need to go back to my country and i i because there is no treatment for zia yup. I don't even know what's disease the only ones who can help me or here in the the united states those are the stakes for people and they are inside this country. Other families have also sounded the alarm about all this. How could you tell families like this to just pick up and leave and basically as many people who have said you know your child at death sentence. It's was scarier the novenas surgery and headdress very surprising and i was a word for similar to stay okay here. It keeps pretty much his life him leaving the country. You wouldn't have the specialized treatment that he has right now that he's currently having monitor rice health health treatment that he's he's having here right now. Those are just some of the families that spoke with chris chancing here on m._s._n._b._c. Today we reached out to representatives for all of the families you. I heard from. They are cautiously optimistic. Big picture is a meaningful results for these individuals and a reminder that these facts and these stories stories matter and for many the facts are a matter of life and death and one final. I don't know tonight. The beat goes on. Even after we go off the air. I was just talking to comedian. Chuck nice about chris christie's new push for civility and tonight if you go there right now at to be with r._a. On instagram you can see that new behind the scenes video.

I'm already thinking about what. The easter bunnies leaving. I'm sorry that's my number one story today. I'm thinking chocolate. Peanut butter in chocolate can ravioli. Nyaki ham this series leaving cash and. Ppi it's going to help out america. Yeah oh but joe biden's come up with an easter basket is that what's happening in spending trillions of dollars right and he's gotta stop by your house and merry. Christmas is not going well. I wouldn't take too long before the entire press corps was starting to turn on biden. I think it happened this week. You do do you The they're starting to get snippy. Jen psaki and boys you get snippy back. And then she lies and then she doubles down in down in quadruples down. I watched your yesterday. I was like whoo. I don't have the sound yet. But did you see that. Oh yeah she fight because they're ask actually holding them accountable. Miracle for the disinformation. They're sent out about that. George election law and she was like. Oh the one. That's limiting voting rights. Yes go on well bits because the president what. When did he say on. Was it wednesday or tuesday. He said well. How can they have this this election law where they don't let people vote because they closed the polls at five right in there starving people in line. I was like wow things. Got tough their data. I do have this. Said when. I'm worried about us. How un-american this whole initiative is it sick deciding that you're going to end voted at five o'clock when working people are just getting off work. That's not true now. I don't know how to say no. He may not no. It's not true. But that's what is being told to go out there and say well. Here's the problem you know. The law itself may say that. But there's also this little sidebar that little line that says hey any county you guys can extend it from seven o'clock in the morning till seven eight o'clock at night if you want so it's it's by county and the law was written that way because some counties have fewer people others have farmers who you know that's all it is is a farming community so they could get to the polls by five o'clock. That's it it was like okay. Just he just left it up to the counties which is fine. I did disinformation. It's being sent out about this thing. It's insane scared. The of like fiction curing our election problems. Oh and then it went on to say how they ever going to let people die of thurston hogger waiting in line. I was like wow in sake double down on that one. Yesterday she goes. How dare they tell people. They can't drink. Water was like why are you. Why are they not letting people know that that the thing is the reset. There'll be a table setup. I guess with snacks and water but it has to be according to election laws like one hundred and fifty feet away first of all. You're there to vote not get your snack on my god like this is the most important thing that's ever happened. I need stags. I could seattle lost. All these people are standing like in the desert for hours not to vote. And i'm like okay. I walk when i vote. It's like hello you. Ben walk into the gym. There's nobody there like. I go up. Vote leave. i didn't even have time navid. Snack never mind having launch. Are you going to fill out a bubble to vote or you go into the bataan death march. I mean what is happening in georgia. You know who did a great job. Clean this up kilmeade. Who's on right after us. Here at eight. Fifty w. f. t. l. He had on brian. Kemp the governor of georgia on to clarify this whole thing. Here's what kemp said kilmeade talk about old and somebody that the fire though hours. Remain the same correct. In a matter of fact we've got one hundred thirty four out of one hundred fifty nine counties in this bill actually be expanding. The number of hours people can vote in the process. So what he's saying is not true but kilmeade came back with a great point. Any any senate it right to governor camp because yeah fine but they're out messaging you. You're losing your understand this. Yeah yeah he doesn't. I don't think he did and it's it's true. Though because the left like the here you have the white house press secretary lying about it and then doubling and tripling down on her. And where do you get your information from. You know if you're in the white house press corps and that's the only source of information you're getting then you're spreading the lives just as well so the only source of information for half of america or all of america. Our lives was like okay great. It's like the cdc message that came out. Did you guys see it anywhere yesterday. Anywhere nose buried because it was positive news about how if you're vaccinated you. Not only cannot get covid nineteen you cannot spread it. No miss no word of it anywhere. No know i was shocked. Do not want the good news to get out there. God it's horrible people. God forbid they let them know that we're beating this virus and we're gonna be fine now. They're not they. Don't wanna know that i i'm done with listen basic media. Here's another thing you won't find either and this was amazing. This is where i give georgia. Lawmakers who were behind this camp is just the dope that signed the lawmakers remember the whole thing with delta. The delta ceo said this is horrible. We're going backwards with this. George alexa arable delta. Ceo that would make you show id to get on a plane. But he hasn't shown at the at the voting booth. They flight china too. Just say well listen not reported anywhere but in georgia. Listen to what the georgia. Gop did they voted to cancel delta's tax break. Now they did god there. You go see you later. That mr ceo visits how you fight back whole give him credit. Gop leader at one of his quotes. Is you don't feed the dog that bites your hand. could for that. How you do it let me tell you. That's the first time i've seen the republicans actually have some man for them absolutely mess with coq. Georgia come on right all right. Let's let's go to some great news. Come the next because it is friday. We need to feel good story. Did you see this kid. That saved somebody from choking on nickelodeon. It's an amazing. This a reason to watch cartoons.

We made it to friday karen. Good friday new news coming up but six thirty which got going on. Well go ahead and get together with family for easter. You can get together safely and wear masks. If you've all been vaccinated but still the cdc says don't do it just do it. Virtually few absolutely don't have to. Oh okay yeah. Not message by eleven. It'll change by noon. It'll change a one. Sure just like they said yesterday if you're vaccinated you can't get it and you can't spread it. Well what's interesting. Is that if you've already had the disease you only need one shot. They're saying really. Yeah wow yeah that's cool. Where did you hear that. yeah. I don't know where the vaccine or less for six months. I don't know what's going on. No that was because that's the only statistics they have. They've got they've got people convinced that it ends at six months. It was everywhere on facebook yesterday. Bill and i spent like ten minutes on easing late yesterday morning. I didn't even cover because there's like a tomorrow so whatever. Yeah because it'll be six months in one way but the way they worded it was like it only lasted six months. And then you're like blue. Pumpkin one By the way dot com the portal avatar website Eighteen and up can register today at seven o'clock. I'm really oh that's right. 'cause monday they can get the shot so basically everyone can get vaccinated. You're going to be covered. Go see your family have a great easter. all right. that's exactly right enjoy. we're winning. You're right to the information about you. Know the good news about vaccination everything they know you're right wasn't anywhere yesterday. Fuck and find it and then that stupid thing from pfizer. Oh it lasts for six months. Everyone thought you're right six months and a day. I'm not protecting anymore. Yay they didn't bother to say it's good right till today because that's the only data we have so far which is a good thing. It's still good good. Good no one got. Here's more by the way the florida morning. Show walk into friday. There's gender diener bill. Cairns got more news coming up and in her news what she just teased a little bit more details. We we're gonna talk about here Public's opening up forty minutes or so from now eighteen. Plus in the way this is for madonna. Oh so that is what i got but you know what i know. A lot of people went to the pfizer. So i you know what. I still have to look at my card. I'm sure it says somewhere on that card that i got the maderno one or the pfizer. One right yeah. I think it does have yet. Are you going soon okay. Why don't you do it this morning. I got stuff to do. all right. we all cover. Don't worry about it. here's how this works. He may be wondering. You're like wait a minute. I thought eighteen plus was only for next week. Well that's because the appointments you would book. Today would be tuesday. April sixth right for the during eighteen. Plus but you can register if you're eighteen and over today and it was closed on wednesday because wednesdays at publix. They give the shots on saturday and sunday. Right on since sunday's easter they didn't open up the portal. Here you go all caught up so there you go. How do you like that. Publix is still the biggest for appointment Vaccinations but like you said. I think it was yesterday the day before we know a ton of people who've gone to walgreens and cvs for this too. Yeah and by the way west palm beach opened up a big site yesterday at gains park But you have to register for that one is well if you live in the city. Just check out the city's page and they'll direct you to where you can go. You can even call make an appointment there you go. So that's cool there. You go well. governor rhonda's santa's was all over the place yesterday and by that i mean all over the national news because we'll basically he said this today. I'm directing the department of corrections to identify all inmates with the -tainer agreements who is is refusing to pick up and develop a process for transferring them to an ice detention center. He says it's a massive problem in our state where we have illegals here committed a crime in their house here. Housed i mean incarcerated here right and then basically when that sentence is done untraceable. Yeah well the biden administration says guy. You can just walk free. It's kinda like the the law we talked about yesterday in new york that. What was it lifetime. Parole and that poor. Asian woman just attacked viciously by that guy that had murdered his mother but was out on parole lifetime parole. I don't get it how do you. How do you let murderers outta outta prison. Please explain that one to me. I don't know i really don't you. I'm i'm a firm believer you do at once the second time spryly a little bit easier. So why would you let him out to do it again. I i have that guy by the way more details coming out about him when he killed his mom in two thousand and two he was out in two thousand eighteen. No problem no no problem and he said more now. Finding all the neighbors that had live near they said this guy was. We were afraid to even go near him so for three years at bdo and finally it finally happened. Walks down the street midtown manhattan and beats the art of his poor little asian lady. Who was just trying to go to church and all the arrest all the useless security guards you can see in the video by the way they've all been fired so that's good. They didn't even step out to help her good. You know what they should face charges. No you know you see something like that. You know you're a kid. It's a different story right doing anything. You're an adult. Do something call the cops at least yeah. If you're not going to intervene. okay. We went sideway. Sorry it's more. What the governor said. I'm sending a letter to the biden administration today asking them to continue the prior policies. Where you're taking custody of criminal aliens and removing them. What is so complicated about this. And why would you. Who in their right mind would fight this. Why i don't know. I i don't understand half of the laws the left wing. Democrats try to push through. I makes no sense to me. Look at the whole immigration situation. Come on over come on. We get seventeen thousand kids on you know unaccompanied sitting at the border. We're going to do with all these kids. It's not a crisis near their opening up like seventeen centers this weekend across this country to house. These kids now. I know why three weeks ago. I remember biden was leaving the leaving. The podium. some reporter goes. Are you going to be able to handle the situation of the crisis at the border. And he goes under his under his breath. God willing yeah knew how bad it was looking. Even then it's ten times worse now it's crazy craziness. It's friday so we need good news. I feel good story of the day. I mean we always need good news. We try to feature these but this is especially awesome. Tell me cartoons aren't great. Yeah to networks. Don't tell me that Big brother's heroes. Because this little guys a big hero. There's this kid that watches a lot of nickelodeon. His parents say yup pretty much. That's the deal there in pennsylvania. Well his sister was choking on a chicken nugget. Her brother's only eight years. Old gen saved her life in. How did he know how to save her life. Because of john cena. Why what. Little jackson dipsy so john. Cena doing on a nickelodeon prank show called the substitute really. This is what he says about. It made me feel scared. I thought she gye but then the sink came into my mind over. Then i started. Tupac face was right on reg. She wasn't really breathing. And jackson sprung into action before even hoping the door feel like a hero so much. I feel like a hero so much. That's awesome cool though. That's awesome dad pullover. I'm going to savor in my only hope. Is that the kid then when everything was fine did that. John cena move. What's that thing with his hand. can you see me. you can't see me but the hand over the face but even across your eyes you can't see me. He's totally getting breath back elvis. And he's doing this. It's only right that they should get the story to john. Cena right but without a doubt. Did he comment did he. Do we know if he heard kind of fresh not yet. I bet you anything within a few days. He's going to comment on this. Because he's actually john cena has done a lot of charity. Work with mets. He's done the most make a wish. wishes ever surrealist so. Ibm sure this will probably get to him at some point. Of course he's also co hosted that new wipeout show right so he's also going to inspire kids to jump off the roof into the pool. Sprays you gotta balance the good nabet be doing that all summer long. I saw john cena. Do it sure that's great. Though that is that is a. That's probably one of my favorite stories because we always talk about kids a little sponges. We know that much right why they will pick up a lot of bad things they see on tv but there actually is a lot of good influence they will. We'll get from things like this. I agree how do the parents handle the next time. They tried to tell the these two kids because they sound smart not to turn off. Nickelodeon do your homework. you know saving. Somebody's life dad. Never know i could learn how to put out a fire. Life saving research. Don't you dare a Coming up next this Matt gaetz story is getting. Wacky is as if it wasn't crazy enough. It's getting well if this is true. But that's a big big if yeah and there's only two people so far so i know we'll see we've got easter bunny in an easter candy to talk about. Let's get those are the real important issues of the day. Most important it's right. That's coming up next south florida morning. Show this i'm bill. Keep it here. Self-loading morning show news. Talk eight fifty w. f. t. l. a. friday good friday easter weekend excited about the easter bunny coming. I'm excited love the easter bunny easter. Bunny scranton we're gonna talk about how you with. Some new survey tells you exactly how to eat these bunny. Chocolate easter bunny. That you're gonna get absolutely disagree. remember the old commercial. Thanks buddy buck buck. Bach was cadbury cadbury. As a matter of fact we had the cadbury easter egg winner. Easter bunny winner on. You're on vacation right from lovely palm city florida. My backyard go see about. There's always a conflict. Tom city home of the easter. Bunny winner here you go. This got a little feisty yesterday at the white house press room. I think the message got to jen. Psaki circle back sake to be a little bit feisty with these reporters because they're starting to ask feisty questions now they should because well and then she doubles down in lies. yeah ganley and again so this reporter. I don't know where he was from. But i give them a lot of credit wasn't a fox guy. Now i gotta find a where he was from but he was saying well actually The messaging from the ministry is is actually wrong. Is the tone going to change from the administration about this. How she got she got snippy about is set so no our tone is not changing. We have concerns about the specific components of the package including the fact that it makes it harder and more difficult for people to vote by limiting absentee options by making it Not viable not possible for people to provide water to people who are in line by not standardizing longer hours. So if you're making it harder to vote no. We don't support that can i ever now. Maybe it's different georgia. I don't know maybe they make them go through the bataan. Death march vote. I have no idea has your concern to vote. Ever been whether you're going to get water or snacks now that lazy i don't you know what i don't even think in my voting district Again i mean i walk in. There's maybe two people in front of me. If that i've never waited it's like okay. Go just go to that machine over there but do you go there for lunch. Oh i don't wanna eat. Jim butch a little sweaty kids running around and sorry. I know it's not me but is it like people like man i'm hungry. We want to go for lunch. Wait a minute election day. let's go stand in line. We'll get snacks you know. Why don't you just bring a food truck near the machines. But you're right. I is that the big they're in. They're making such a big deal about it. They're making a sound like if it were arizona in you're in the desert and you had a stint hours. I could understand why you'd be concerned. People couldn't have water brought to them but there are tables that will provide water. Just there won't be anybody there to talk to you to influence your vote and that's but you know what what's his name kilmeade. Brian kilmeade do follows us right here. At eight fifty. Wfl line ever when he talked to the governor of georgia. You people is being beaten to a bulb. they're beaten you. Yeah what allies. Kilmeade actually was great about that. He did grill bryant camp about it because kept going on clarifying the entire thing. And you said this out communicating you because you have the facts on your side. It seems even the washington post pick that out. that's a great point out communicating. And they all right when you get the white house. Press secretary lying about it. What's the world supposed to. This is the kind of situation where my left wing friends. And i will get into a a knockdown screaming match. Because i'll say she's lying. How could she lie. she's the white house. Press secretary has all the facts. No she doesn't right. She's lying right or they stretched the truth to extremes. Good lord so anyway. Listen to jen. Psaki i don't know who's lying if anybody's lying in this entire thing but this whole matt gaetz through. I didn't think it would get any weirder. It did yeah. It's got a lot we're in if this is true Cnn there's a shocker. Reports a number of sources course. Cnn is famous for the unnamed sources according to our own reporting. Yeah okay well. Yeah sources in our newsroom. Yes say that The two-term florida. Republican matt gaetz reputation washington ragging to other members of congress about his sexual exploits really. Yeah okay. so what did he do. He showed picked. I heard something about nude pictures. Yeah i just did a report and use that word report loosely. When it comes from cnn that he showed house colleagues nude photos of women he had been sleeping with okay in today's environment especially since this allegedly happened during the metoo movement. You not think that these alleged colleagues who had seen these alleged pictures wouldn't have run to nancy alleged palau's e the leader of the pack and said something. Well i mean other colleagues friends of his. I'm sure he wouldn't you know wouldn't go up to steny hoyer pictures on his phone. But you know i don't know unless he wanted to awesome. I mean yeah steady. Might like you know cardiac arrest on something like that. This is just saying you know if you're gonna come out with something like that name name allege something you've seen you naked pictures on matt gaetz his phone days yourself in who the who are these women allegedly now. They're even saying that they were hired women so to say right right. So i'm like okay so that now it gets getting real sort. How long is this guy. I've been married to even know if somebody just got married. Matt gaetz married. He just. I don't know if he's married or not. I think he just got just Got engaged. I think or something like that. I don't know for his part. Still as of yesterday the congressman says no part of the allegations against him are true. None of it. I don't know he's either going to own the new york times. Cnn too bright or his political career is done. I think everything's done. I don't think it's going to go either way. But the fbi by the way has not released the tapes that he say he says are proved the entire thing. But why wouldn't they have already arrested the guy that's china you know. Get them for all this money. They're saying it's all part of some big huge sex ring in punch all other stuff illicit stuff going on. There's a lot of this none of this yet to me. Sounds like any of it's true. I can only hope not. Because i thought he was like you know. Nice nice guy. But if he's a creepy needs to pay the price just like everybody else. The real disturbing thing would be character. Assassination which we've seen over the past few years through the media now prove that that was happening to him from other democrats and from the new york times Expect a massive massive lawsuit. How you know. I don't want to bring up past things but look what they did. The mark foley they ran they destroyed his career over nothing. Nothing was totally not true because they didn't like the fact that he was a republican and he was vocal about it course anyway. Wow so hopefully. it's not true and matt gaetz is still a nice guy. Certainly hope so anyway but again. It's focused on the real issues of the day. Not what's on. Matt gaetz his phone. But what's in your easter basket. Kind of candy we were like is the kind of hard hitting news. You come here for now. I re if it's christmas if it's easter valentine's day it's mother's day there's always one that tops the list for me. And that's anything that resembles a receives peanut butter. Oh and there's a lot of forms of those now. I just saw the other day. They're in egg form. They're all the same thing. They got. Bunnies i got. I got all easter bunny. Like top notch in my house. They're so good. I how can you not like anything that makes drew like those little those kind of flat. But they're egg-shaped recess right. Yeah they're everywhere. They're just enough and just like ten or twelve when we do these right. It can't have just twenty like potato chips. Oh we do these. Social survey survey says i like when they confirm exactly what i've always believed in any normal rational human being believes. There's only one right way to eat a chocolate bunny. Ninety nine point nine percent of the country. Thousands of people said the same thing feet. i know. that's just your communist. If you start at the bottom the ears you hack the ears off this thing. Don't you start at the bottom. So that when it's friends yell at him to run can't hear you devour it. See that's why you eat is feet first. Because then he can't hop away you can't that's not that makes absolutely no sense why you hold him by the ears and you eat it from. Here's auto something that's like what's left god. No no. i'll eat my way. okay. I guess so. Have you lived in america on time or are you a new easter. Just kidding we got lines coming up next. Talk about come on. I'm the one who has the adult easter egg hiding contest. Deal with matt gaetz coming over at two o'clock these days adult easter egg hunt sounds a lot different. Isn't it not that guy now. Used more to talk about coming up next. We should have a little march madness preview. I guess because that's back that's that's tomorrow isn't it holy cow all that's coming up next. Florida morning shows gen. Bill qadeer jared good news coming up at seven o'clock on the dot. When you're working on now matt gaetz could be in deep doo doo. Here's house speaker nancy. Pelosi think from what we've heard so far. This would be a matter for the ethics committee. That's a big could could. That's a big. If and these are a lot of unnamed sources at Supposedly coming from cnn. This sounds looks. Smells feels like a complete baloney hatchet. Job go no matron to be true. But i don't know as they told you yesterday as friend joel. Greenberg already indicted last year for sex trafficking. he's all part of this and there's allegedly photos that were showed on the house floor of naked women and all kinds of stuff. That's being alleged. But it's all based on his friend joel greenberg and we'll see what happens. But yeah you're gonna deep weird story though. And somehow some it evolves. Bob levinson from an apparently the attorney. He's a gates is accusing came up with this entire thing head in the past. Try to raise money. Twenty five million dollars to get bob levinson out of Whereas iran he's probably he's a defrost florida florida's probably not even alive more adults. It was weird things. Could the story have. Yeah good lord but it's interesting that the justice department bill barr started the investigation during the trump administration. So whatever that more coming up she. I even kind of ferret through this entire thing. Wow all i know is. I don't know if i've ever seen a politician fights so hard though it flattens not wavered at all in flatly denies any of the allegations. Well man andrew cuomo Vietnamese league though night. Everything too but And he's still fighting show. Who do you believe him. Or matt gaetz. I either way. They're both i if if it's true. They're both creepy. I've always thought cuomo was creepy but creepy and he should have been gone a long time ago. But that's besides the point matt gaetz. I've always liked. And why would you be so vocal and so public if you have these these horrible skeletons in your closet. What run for all politicians. I think they think they're above. The law is obviously what we learned was. He's rich kid politically connected even growing up because his dad was a congressman. I think they think they're above. The law may be a case. Where none of this happened. Well we can only hope. Because i like the guy we got. Nancy pelosi talking about ethics commissions. That makes me believe none of this is true. I don't know i have no idea. We'll find out eventually. i am sure. Jeez matt gaetz. He looks like kennedy to every time i see him. Now it's all i think about kennedy. So that's not good for him. Unfortunately because people think kennedy family they think conspiracy Could be. I don't know all right. We got Public vaccination site open and a little over ten minutes in this will be the one if you're eighteen and older. You can get an appointment for next week now. Why is it happening now you next week. Who was eighteen plus right because your appointment would be for tuesday. That's so that's means that you would be eligible today to make the rue the appointment. That's right never other places a bunch of people we work with went to cvs. I was. I was kinda surprised because the cvs when i triton that was weeks ago but it was only for like healthcare workers first responders teachers that kind of thing so You can check that out. West palm beach also opened up a new center at games park. And if you live in west palm you can go there. You just have to make an appointment. I i think you just have to go to w whatever it is but go look at the city website and there will be a connection there. So that's that's cool and they're going to do. They said i think thousand a weekend. That's a lot of people. Sure are a lot of people. How many people you think eighteen league young kids will get it. I don't know because You know it's funny. Because when a sam's friends He's twenty eight just diagnose. He's been home for like seven days now. he's at the end of his his corentin right. The only reason he knew we had it was. You couldn't taste anything and okay. So he had as symptomatic of the net so he's at home but You talk to most of them young guy you know twenty four twenty five twenty s. Yeah i'll get wanna get it. There's like no rush. It's not like impending doom interesting. I wonder if it's going to all of a sudden because the you know the Compliance rate with all the ages. It's been really good so far so true. I wonder now that the dip it down to eighteen plus. I wonder if that's gonna gonna slack off. A little bit. Should be interesting. Well you know where it's going to slack off. Did you see what southeastern nova university did. Yesterday i college campus to require every to be vaccinated. Yeah he can't get anywhere near it without being vaccinated. That's coming and i you know. We talked about other schools. That are saying you should get it. And they'll have it available on campus. But they can't force you so but southeastern nova southeastern is you have to have a vaccination schools expected. That's kind of like you know school age kids as soon as they came out with that was at the pfizer study. Sit kids have no ill-effects from this blah blah blah blah. Whatever was so you know this is going to be one of the vaccination requirements. Yeah it's one hundred. They said one hundred percent effective against twelve day. Whoa jeez i mean that's that's pretty effective. Can't get any better than that. So you're right now it's going to be. They'll start with middle school and then they'll say high school kids have to be vaccinated and have to prove to order to get in the school right. It's coming eventually it's a common. It's exactly right. But did you hear the little dictator. Fauci what he said. We might not even need that. Astrazeneca's effects. I i am so done with this man. You have no idea with them a long time ago. You're telling me he's telling me That we're so well-stocked with vaccine that we may not even need another one approve the astrazeneca one. That's how good things are. And that's not the message so they've said that everybody by the summer pretty much is going to be vaccinated for the most statistically speaking and we have so much vaccination. We don't need astrazeneca and yet they're telling us going forward into the future like year can't live normally and you gotta wear a mask. Yeah what he's a. he's year right. He just wants people to have a mask on for the rest of their lives. Control control control not buying this. I'm not buying their and they're not buying this anymore.

The South Florida Morning Show hr 4 4-14-21

"In south florida morning show with jennifer. Ross in bill adams on newstalk. Eight fifty w. mtl. Well you made it. I should say we made it the mysterious night at ten hour. He south florida morning. Show has jin diener bill. Get more news on the way. I'm sure they'll be more updates throughout the day. The big meeting. Today about the johnson and johnson pause a feeling. They're not going to tell you much of anything. I think you're exactly right. Because if you're collecting data on how. Many other people may have been affected by this vaccine. That's all you're doing right now and so you're trying to decipher all this information. That's coming in doesn't only affect women have men been affected. Are these blood clots there because it was a pre existing condition and these six women students who knows i. I'm a firm believer if you watching cis you know to. There's no such thing as a coincidence as they say The vaccine had something to do with these blood clots but look at okay. The only other example. We have of a of a country being scared out of taking a particular vaccine right germany. The astra zeneca thing came out reports of again a few people out of millions. Having blood clots it was enough for that country. Basically to shut that one down they did they had they had three million doses sitting there when there was a shortage of everything else because the people who had vac who had appointments to get the astra zeneca vaccine candidate right so now you got the cdc saying well long-term. Don't worry about it or you know i. I don't think it's going to affect things. Long-term it's exactly what what fao she just said. Listen here's what this quote. Don't get ending zayed reaction because remember. It's less than one in a million okay. Yes yet they they call a pause for this thing there in the real jam they gotta figure out what their messages and well. They better figure out if the two are related. You know it's easy to say it was only six out of seven million but if it's my mother if it's me my daughter my aunt my my next door neighbor my friend. I you know i. It affects you personally. So do you take that chance. Yeah the odds are like astronomical. But am i gonna try it. No and i didn't figure it out. I think a lot of people are going to in okay. So they say they figure it out and they they realized that these six women They had a pre existing condition that you know the johnson and johnson vaccine kind of was a catalyst to build these blood clots. They say it's okay. Okay we're gonna put it back on the market. I can tell you right now. I could name fifty women that i know. That wouldn't get it. I think you're right and whether or not that's accurate or whether or not that's fair doesn't matter perception is reality and the perception for this particular vaccine. It just is so. All the men in the world are gonna get the johnson and johnson vaccine unless of men start coming forward and saying hey i had a blood clot but didn't realize it was because i got this vaccine exactly. That's exactly what's going to happen so so now you got you could see can start to see the chips start to fall already scenario here you go you get the surgeon general doing a today show interview with cbs. This morning saying this to reasons to pause one is again to ends to do the actual investigation to see if there's a real link in the second is to have that time to communicate with healthcare professionals about what to look for but also how to treat this condition. Yeah but you don't know what the underlying causes worth of these sit. You got one you know one woman died. And did she die because she didn't realize as a blood clot and it traveled or was she treated at the hospital because fao ci. Dr fauci yesterday said most blood clots are treated with like a blood thinner. Like heparin my mom was on that. Okay these are a particular type of blood clot and he said if you treat it with heparin. That's going to cause more harm than good. So did the hospital where this woman passed away at or this woman that died wishy treated with heparin or a regular blood clot thinner and did that. Cause her death. They're just too many questions and they're not releasing. All the answer's obvious going to have to. I mean they have a responsibility to do it when you've got the obamas and you've got russell wilson and you got. They're doing this big. Psa coming up. What is it next week at the roll up your sleeve. Better get the information right then headed out there and say exactly what this is. Well you better hope they do it pretty quick to it should be interesting if men are affected. And i think that's going to be a game changer. Because if you knew it affected men eighteen to forty eight. I mean even though you're like above that but just by a little. Would you still be getting the johnson and johnson vaccine. I i honestly knowing me. I would go with convenience and that may be terrible. I think it's almost people. Think guys think man wait a minute. It's a one shot and it's available now and to whitman. Let's go. Let's go really absolutely okay. I think write me a guy. I can't think like a man. Obviously i wouldn't do it You know it was livid about this. The boss bruce. The dawn bruce. He doesn't matter President trump yesterday slammed the administration's Pause of the changing events. He said they did a tip. Is the quote a terrible disservice to people throughout the world by allowing the fda and cd call it a pause and the use of the vaccine results of the vaccine has been extraordinary but now it's reputation will be permanently challenges. What we were just talking about so true went on to say the people have already taken. The vaccine will be up in arms. And perhaps all of this was done for politics. Or perhaps the fda's love for pfizer. So he's throwing a little little conspiracy in there but he may be right. I don't know he would know he. Well he didn't he got madonna by the way regeneron to is trying to get. Fda approval for their cocktail that they say is eighty percent effective. Anybody i know that's taken that thing if they got covert said. It's it's miraculous. But they didn't have enough of it at my brother and my sister. I didn't realize so my my sister-in-law also got it by my brother and sister-in-law both had covert and the in california the first hospital. They went to had no idea how to treat. And by the way which was kind of scary. Sure second hospital. They walked into an. I don't know the names of their hospitals but the one the second one they walked into is near calabasas county so they knew my brothers said it was like we walked in and the guy went go that way and they put us in a room in the back and he goes they came in and they go here and they they gave him this the regeneron cocktail and he said literally with an hour. My headache my fever. Every pain in my body which was like every ounce of my body he said went away so trump's it was like i was like he was like he said i felt like a new person. It was like incredible. And that was the regeneron remember. What trump said when he got covert remember that. I think i feel. I think i'm in better. Shape added that feel believable blamable. Nobody said it could be done. I did it. And i personally defeated cova than anybody. I had the best recovery of any president of anything ever. But you're right. Everybody who had this regeneron says it's great and then the thing with my brother and my sister-in-law though was when they went to get the vaccine when they heard that they'd had had the regeneron. They're like okay. Wait a minute hold on. Go ask your doctor which when you're supposed to get really so they ended up. They had a wait and they said You can get any of them but they ended up getting pfizer interesting though so but it was like okay. You don't get a vaccine because you may not need it up all right switching gears. I can't talk about pauses anymore. I'm tired we need something fun. All we make something fun. You're gonna incense me no. Oh it's only an excuse to play audio again because we don't want to let it go as was we love it. It's close to our hearts but we played for you the audio. The greatest sports call of all time yesterday in this was from the professional bowling associations event. That happened this past weekend. I think it was the tucson. Open something like that and this was when this kid who they call the ginger assassin. He's only eighteen the sterile. He got the very tough seven ten split which is when the pins. You know an opposite sides other almost impossible to get the announcers went nuts. But we didn't even know the announcers were but a we'll get to it but a listener told us where they were really excuses to play the audio again. Seven ten come on man. Seven ten only been made on television three times in the history of professional bowling on tv. Come walk into it since man and then the drums kick in. It's my favorite audio of all sides. It really is probably one of the greatest sporting calls that we've ever played those announcers thanks to our listener. Richard williamson. We greatly appreciated our rob stone. Wow rob stone did that. Who's rob stone. He's been around a while he's done college football games. Oh yeah things like that. Yeah we know. He's doing offseason and randy he's talking about is of famer pro bowler randy petersen. It must have been color analyst. Yes so that's rub does play by play. I'm pretty sure. I've never heard rob's. Don't get that excited before. Not even like during a pack twelve college football game seven. Ten split has only happened three times. And it's fair televised history so come on so thank you richard williamson for that information. He knew exactly said it was the pba. I would assume the pro bowlers associated. Us open wonder. If he's watching that you know. I was just going to say what what i love about our. Listen to richard. There is two things number. One is the listener. Ryan appreciate that number two. He's a listener. Who watches bowling so he was able to tell us. I would guys word. That's that's and again Was on fox sports. Actually the fox sports network one of the off channels. I'd be willing to bet you. This gets a shockingly good rating. Might this bowling. It's got like a pretty good niche audience. I could see that yeah to you. Know what what what you should do. All we were talking about yesterday off the era of replay. That sound bite was the old pool tournaments. They you show on espn. Oh i love those were unbelievable shots. Oh my god. My daughter's friends is a competes. The state playing paul shoes really good remind me not to play with her comes in with little sticks you know and she puts them all there and it's like whoa excuse me never ever play pool against somebody that has their own stick. In a case you don't ever experienced it will destroy. You will not get a shot at good. I love those. They have those trick while. I guess she plays normally anyway but they have those trick shot things. But there's that the lady the black widow though deadly trick shots god can regular pool. Can you do trick shots. You can't can you like in a regulation game if it goes in your if it means that you know that's the angle you're gonna take. Yeah okay last time. I played with this particular woman she just cleared. The table was like okay. She have her own stick in a case. Three of our own sticks indicate bad move plan her colors. I was like okay. That's she cleared the table. He had rob stone in the back screaming. She didn't read the table. Randy is somebody somebody sharks and says hey i don't i haven't played since but yeah we'll play okay. We set them up and then all of a sudden they reach for the case with their own stick. And then you know that you've been bamboozled. It's a bad field sharked when of my this is the. Can i tell a great story or whenever girlfriends played for ohio. State's college team gulf. Okay and a friend of ours. Worked at Lazarus which is kind of like a dillard's store and all the big people used to come in on the corporate people have a gulf match and he always got beat and they all would bring their wives so one year. He pawned off my girlfriend as his girlfriend and ringer yellow. She was and she was like you know one and two on the college team. She was agenda on the lpga tour. So anyway rosie place with matt and he goes okay. This is the scoop. He goes really stink. Like the first four or five. oh so by the time they get to the fifth hole all these guys start betting against it like a hundred bucks a whole hundred bucks a hole and he turned around and goes aright. He goes now. It's time to stop fooling around. He goes we gotta start playing it. Like three hundred and fifty yards strict on the fairway bum bum because rosie clean. They're clocks winning twelve hundred bucks. He was so s but she was the plant the and then after like the seventh hole they realized they'd been bamboozled by and there was money on the line. A lot of money on the line and his legs weren't broken. Is wichita really likes. That's the most shocking part. But i remember. He talked about that for years. He he'd call me because he was my brother's best friend he thanks jen he goes things rose at you save me. It's really dirty. Yeah well he got beat like four years in a row any losing tons of money and he knew rosie was a friend of mine. Golf sharks wide. You've never done that on the color of what was the first color of money. The paul newman the first movie. Yeah and you get his thumbs broken for playing pool though. Wasn't it golf still got sticks. They can beat you with and their metal all right. We'll come up with something to talk about next. I don't know what the blind lottery story all. We're not talking about that woman anymore. It'll make you mad and Best word states to drive in this has been determined by by science. Apparently really not ours. Give you that much. It's coming up next florida morning. Show keep it here morning. Show news talk. Eight fifty left e. Elvis does diener. I'm bill welcome to its caramel. Have more news for you. Bottom of the hour coming up at nine. Thirty eight fifty w. f. t. l. dot com though the morning show blog. It's all about the animal stories we had today the be By the way we had a senior moment here just a little while ago because diener turned around looked at me and went. What is this harvey movie people. Keep talking. I didn't know it either. You didn't. i'm surprised it was one of jimmy stewart's first big films. He is a guy and he has a friend named harvey who is a six foot three bunny that nobody else can see him and the movies very good actor he might have won an academy award for. I don't know but it's that's what it was based on because this bunny that this woman has in england is four feet four inch. It's massive. That just i don't want to see a picture of this thing and no it's online at scares me. Animal like that shouldn't be that big it there. It's a certain kind of breda bunny it's a giant obviously giant bunny breed. I don't know what if it's called giant breed or whatever they call it but she raises them but okay. Here's the thing she had it in a couponer backyard. If it's it holds the record for being the guinness world book record for being the largest giant bunny in the world. Well you have the largest animal of any kind elite outside in a hutch. Yeah when you put it like inside somewhere special or locked up somewhere and no one could get to. The bunny built that house himself. Okay he lives there with his his family and he drives be as a job four and a half foot jump. Yeah it's just like a regular bunny they hop. That's no regular bunny. That's not right but when something's wrong there but when she holes and she likes stretches them out you know so he looks twice as big He'll be waste honestly like thirty pounds. Really it's not like he weighs like a thousand pounds. It's this weird really. I think it's kind of cute. I treat him more like a dog and let him in the house. Probably eat everything though like you know my brother had a pet bunny beer with your remote it could be you know but they usually have a tendency to chew on everything so i would assume it would chew on everything couches chairs right. I'll bring up the point that nobody's bringing up okay. Does he leave giant sized droppings. Oh i would assume he's not cleaning up after that. Put it this way i have. I used to have a clydesdale. There's a big right okay. Yeah it's a big difference. I would assume there's a big difference all right we'll get out of this l. Sorry please this is also on site. We're gonna make your dog while no sorry. It's gonna be my dog a lot of money. Hundred resumes come through the door. Beaner chief tasting officers a serious job. It'll be your sole responsibility to shepherd the great taste bush. They want a spokes dog for the they got a new beer tonight. Alcoholic beer called dog dog beer or dog brew and bush is looking for a spokes dog to put with the beer. It pays twenty thousand dollars now. I know plenty of people. That'll try this drink and say taste just like regular bush the booze out of it i. I'm wondering how many member of those what are they called dog pause or pau. The dog treats and they were in the frozen food. Section people are eating them because it didn't know they were for the dogs has pacino's a yeah. If you ask for the right yeah i went with clyde once or or big blue dog and they looked at me and they. We don't make them big enough. And i was like okay. Just give me a little one then but those are pretty cool. But these i betcha do they put it like in the dog. Section like the pet food section. So people don't buy it To drink for themselves. Does it have to be chilled. My dogs are pretty particular. They're not going to drink any they. Don't drink warm water. it's gonna be cold. I guess you'd have to write. Exit would be bubbly and warm. That's not good now so bubbly not good to give a dog. Carbonation is it. I don't think it's maybe it's not carb. For god's sakes don't give that giant bunny anything carbonated find a giant bunny just so i could have one so i can bring it into the studio to show you. I don't know why that freaks me out so much. It really shouldn't be good. Looks like a big money. Look at it this way. At least it's not like you know. Be and it's coming in attacking you in the middle of the night while you're sleeping a yet to get hooked on that beer and then it going through withdrawal. Oh dear anyway anyway. But we didn't get to. The best states would drive in. You said dr is one of the main things they basically ranked all of. What's the best day. What's america's favorite state on. They also rank the best country. Yeah yeah. I don't agree with anybody. Does we got that. But we'll get to your blind lottery story now but also i don't know maybe this is pandemic related. More and more americans are open to an open kind of relationship. You know what i'm saying. Yeah did you see the statistics on that one too Wrote since we started talking about throttles with katie hill lady. Just saying that's all next south. Florida morning show this bill beer. Fifty w. f. t. l. e. sell florida morning. Show is diener bill. Cairns news again coming up top of the hour. Welcome to that Going to hear a lot about the johnson and johnson vaccination delay. You're going to hear a lot about The cruise industry is lobbying congress today. And they're supposedly going to fight the to lift this restriction that no sale restriction. Because they say we can do it. Why can't airlines are flying. Why can't we crew. And that's what i don't get is Is amtrak open by the way or trains running. I don't even know if you wanna know. I know they got there. They got a bunch of money in that New infrastructure pants. Yes they do. They get a ton of money coming their way if that gets passed I don't know amtrak from. That's a great question but if you can you know travel by plane which is far more enclosed for granted. It's not for as long period of time but look at how much is separate from people anyway on a cruise ships right and outside air. They're talking about half the amount of people sailing distance. People just think you know do been on one of those big ones right those big huge ones but if you put half of the people on that can you imagine there is an advantage. I mean it's gonna be great to have more space and be wonderful going. What's the one that has like central park on the deck isn't that i think it's a waste that come on. I saw it on miami right. isn't it sometimes I'm sure the buffets of different. I don't know they would make adjustments. Though i mean they can do it. It's the cruise industry. They can do anything. I and i'm surprised. They haven't moved ships already. And that's going to be. That'll be the gotcha. They're gonna say well. You know what we're going to move our ports mama's or we're going to move our ports to the us virgin or the british virgin islands right. See you later bye-bye and they may not come back. That's a lot of money to florida. Well a lot of money to floor a lot of money to a lot of states In general you know you're talking. You know new york california florida. We have one to miami fort lauderdale. Tampa cape canaveral. There one in jacksonville sir. Report in jacksonville. That they a out of yeah. Is there a navy thing. But isn't it right just south of there. I would think. I mean if there's anybody you know anybody who's ever dinner taken a cruise out of jacksonville and they leave out of there. Yeah i'm not sure. But i do have information on amtrak. Oh thank you. They are running okay and they say that They can customers can now travel with extra confidence knowing that all of our trains are equipped with onboard filtration systems which i guess does a fresh air exchange rate of every four to five minutes. They say that's better than a mask. yeah absolutely. Yeah and of course they want you wear a mask and they actually have one here. Amtrak's goal is to have one hundred percent of employees vaccinated sure. Yeah don't you think a lot of the vaccination requirements that will come through job. We don't won't need evac passport. It'll be if you want to be employed yet. When i think is common who are the sabers buffalo awful lot in the bill said yesterday they'll do full capacity as long as you get a vaccine all of their games. And that's what they're all saying. Jerry jones hit a. Bob kraft it. That's that's gonna be what it is you're gonna so eventually you're gonna need to prove that you get the vaccine somewhere online whether you want to go to a sporting event get on a train or a boat probably or a plane and i think that's what i don't know if we've talked about this with With jay yet. But i'm assuming a lot of are probably gonna do the same thing. Amtrak is doing insane. Our you know. Our employees will be vaccinated. You would think so it's coming. Yeah not necessarily the pilots. Because they're in their. They got their own system. You know there in a separate ventilation is that right Ever since well because of nine eleven to oh okay did not know that. But yeah that's i. I was wondering that amtrak to women talked a lot about amtrak. I haven't gone tracks the nineties. It's it's a win in the nineteen ninety one to visit my girlfriend who went from worcester mass to the bronx came into penn station. And then you know she lived in the bronx. I think it took eleven hours to take that train source not amtrak's there was just. I took the wrong route. They stop we used to take it all the time from providence to well actually work new york city. This thing stopped every thirty feet. I saw so long think a trolley. Just like a subway freight train that they say the most popular one is the one that runs from washington to new york city. Oh the acela. Is that what it's called. Yeah they say that's the most popular one the. What is it the boston new york dc route hun people take that and then they get another one that runs from like i dunno chicago. To north dakota loses eighty eighty five percent of its revenue since it opened like five years ago. No-one runs no one. Takes it in north dakota there people community chicago for north dakota part of the part of the infrastructure plan extends that line into somewhere else and like might not that north or south dakota mine. I think that's north dakota where it's going going to extend it and it gets like i forget how many hundreds of millions of dollars to invest in a system. That one rights is that how you say is it. My i always minnow could like french type. Things might not as far as idaho. It's close enough have been wrong so many times before. Where does north dakota ranking. Her favorite states answer. We don't care. Get to the main ones. I okay. I'm gonna. i haven't seen this list yet. I'm going to say warm states topped the list arizona. Is that in the top five. Yeah it's in there okay. But florida the top state of all. I don't know the asked other states. I guess hawaii sense to. They know how expensive hawaii is now. Celebrity looked into this. That's so true. I saw video of someone doing like a. They were in a grocery store. There were showing racism agencies. It's incredible oh my gosh how you four. To live their incredible. I went to hawaii. I went to a long time ago. And i can remember. We went into some restaurant like the first day of there to get a hamburger the hamburger. Then this is literally like more than twenty years. Ago was like twenty five dollars. What are you kidding. Me my god. It was absurdly expensive. And i was granted was a nice restaurant but it was the only thing i could afford in the place. And they said everything has to be shipped in here in an eilly on rock and then get rock fever. I've had friends and i'm surprised. It didn't happen to karen. But i don't think she was there long enough. They said about the sixth year. There you get rock fever. And i'm like what's rock fever. And they like. I learned fever. You gotta get out. Get out of here. This place. I love to why is extremely expensive. I bet you a lot of people saying hawaii. They've never been there. they just it. Sounds like the ultimate vacation destination. It is but still live very expensive. And in colorado. Oh yeah all this. Youthful virginia virginia not me. It is beautiful there though. Virginia's beautiful state. Yeah politics rice deeply. Blue yeah i think everything. Even the bathrooms are sanctuary bathrooms. Oh jeez yeah. It's like everything's a sanctuary. Something usually junior when there's some insane like social policy happening like In some controversial school thing or whatever. Virginia that's where the dr seuss stuff started it. Yes right yeah. That's where sanctuary schools. Yes started gosh sanctuary city halls. The nevada ton of people move into nevada from california. I know that much. Those tax is right and it. And it's far less expensive than california right north carolina and then florida checks in see. I would still put i. I'd florida number one. Still we have it all. It's true we do now. We do to all the new yorkers. Come here and vote the vote in the democrats. They just escaped from new york. Yes please don't vote in what you're leaving we're fall. Come on guys. This at the stuff icy selling for ungodly prices price. It's like oh my The thing with hawaii is i think they're weather's better than ours however they get a lot more hurricanes than we do. Because they're like i near a stock. There's nowhere you're going you get hit by hurricane. Hawaii where are you going. You're stuck on an island. Yeah you can't go. You're not going anywhere unless you fly out the day before. And they shut down airlines. They do get earthquakes into non. Yeah they did it but the way we were. We were in maui in every day at like four o'clock the wind picked up. So i decided i was to take windsurfing lessons. When are they took me out in the water. Three thirty out there in fallen over the next thing and the other winds bono. There's like forty mile. An hour gusts a goes flying away with a win. You don't want to do with like forty mile an hour winds either. I feel somebody trying to kill me at the time. It was horrible. I never been on percents. That cured me. Oh no you flew to hawaii one point i. I used to fly a lot hateful. That was a long flight. Yes god from your there and then the favor country this is according to. I don't know we went up of spot where sixth in the world the ask. I don't know probably a lot of people to the north. Because canada came in as number one not even a real country anyway but kissel. They ask canada. Canadians love candidate. You should be proud of your own country. They apparently didn't talk to a lot of americans. Then kasai would say the united states are we have so many people complaining about it never been to another country and they think we're the worst please they need. That ends traditionally. It's people who've never left rights playing chess right. I i mean i. I was married to a commercial pilot. So i had the luxury of being able to fly many many places and then we went to a lot of places and without a doubt italy. My second favorite country in the world. And that's purely because of the people have always wanted to go there me to one day and now you can buy a house for a dollar. He but i'm too old to be young. Oh i'm sorry. Yeah you gotta be like. I think the highest is like thirty eight. Maybe forty two and you start a business and you gotta to do this and all this other stuff yeah. They'll let jabba house for a buck.

Morning Joe 2/19/19--Bernie Sanders launches 2020 bid

"We have some breaking news. The White House has announced on Twitter that Latimer. Putin is coming to the White House in the fall. Vladimir Putin comes here. Yeah. Okay. That's going to be special. Oh, yes. Dan Coats was clearly surprise last summer by the president's aglet foreign policy. Now, there are suggestions that the director of national intelligence may be on his way out after offering congress last month, the very different view of the world than Donald Trump's good morning. And welcome to morning Joe is Tuesday February nineteen with this. We have MSNBC contributor, Mike barnicle, Mike you hear you saying. Okay. All right. National security expert calmness that youth today and author of the book the death of expertise zeppelin aficionado. Tom nichols. Okay. Is that what we're playing leads? Definitely McCaw knows. Request. That was that was buyer across what I've listened to six AM a little zapped. Just to get the blood moving. By the way, I listen to their way to have. And I saw saw you in your car listings way to have and just with dash Cam. It's like I can't get away from it. Now that I've said it, I think every music station in America like knows when I'm listening, and I put it out there. Get zip chip Pulitzer prize winning columnist editor of the Washington Post and MSNBC political analyst Eugene Robinson. Good to have you on board this morning with got several stories to cover include including did you see this. Yeah. Just loaded attack on the judge or seeing his cage easily Mike on and say, can you believe that? Of course, what a stupid question to ask. The aero trumpet. I've gotta say even that breakthrough of a new boundary of just deplorable. Behave. Stunning dangerous area for boating we've seen and then the ridiculous pullback the apology, all I took the picture off the internet. I didn't really know what it meant. That was awful. There's a target. They're gonna sell your head. We're not going to show it. But Tom, I mean, this is again, this is again, just every step Ford is one step more where you desensitize. Eric and even without the target. Here's what the judge looks like nears her name. Here's the you know the conspiracy, right? Exactly. Here's the conspiracy theory around the deep state agent at cetera et cetera. At some point somebody's going to take that too serious. He throws deep state. He throws in Benghazi. Again, it's just it's again, it's all conspiracy theories that are turned up to try to get somebody injured or killed also had Harris create some space with Bernie Sanders. What she told New Hampshire voters about democratic socialism and president Gortat now and President Trump says it's not his job to police the world. So what's behind the new focus on Venezuela's political turmoil? I wonder but first a coalition of sixteen states has filed a lawsuit to help keep the president from using emergency powers to redirect federal funds for his border wall. The lawsuit led by. The state of California accuses the president of violating these separation of powers stating quote, congress made clear that funding could not be used to build President Trump's proposed border wall. The lawsuit also cites the president's own words from Friday's news conference when he's had congress provided more than enough money for border security. I went through congress. I made a deal. I got almost one point four billion dollars. When I wasn't supposed to get one dollar one dollar. He's not gonna get one dollar. I got one point four billion. But I'm not happy with it. I also got billions and billions of dollars for other things put of entries. Lots of different things a purchase of drug equipment more than we were. Even requesting fact, the primary fight was on the wall. Everything else we have so much as I said, I don't know what to do with it. We have so much money. But on the wall, they skimped. So I did I was successful in that sense. But I wanna do it faster. I could do the wall over a long period of time. I didn't need to do this. But I'd rather do it much faster. Yeah. You heard that in real time. You said that really the lawsuit was filed in the northern district of California, meaning any appeal with me heard by the ninth circuit. Which last year blocked the president's asylum. Very convenient for the president allows freak out about the night circuit. And pretend that everything is with the night circuit just like just like Democrats didn't like the fact that Texas distract always hear hear cases. And then stop this part of ObamaCare that part of Macaire, but ends up at the supreme court at the end of the day. What how in the world? I cannot see a way that the supreme court does not rule this an unconstitutional of reach especially now that the president has declared that it's just a routine emergency totally at his discretion in complete defiance of the word emergency. I didn't need to do this. Right. Getting a tote. It's like walking into the emergency room and saying listen, I don't really need to be here. Right. But I'd like to talk to Stephen Miller didn't help the case it all of course, when he was never done socks. Yeah. Never does Fox News. But but for him to say, well, basically compare this still foreign war taxes is ridiculous. If this were one of the great threats facing, the United States of America, if this were in emergency, then of course, when the Intel chiefs came and gave their threat assessment, they would have mentioned it. But they don't mention it. They still don't mention it. And you didn't have acting secretary of defense. And I'm not I'm not so sure he went had they mentioned it. He wouldn't have listened anyway. Because we now know that he just doesn't listen to briefings. Right. This is aimed right at the base creating that sense of urgency. But I wonder if the Republicans are actually relieved by this to say, you know, we passed the Bill off our plate. They kick it up to the. Courts that way, it's somebody else's problem. Eventually could shut down and the president declares win. That was taken away from him by the bad courts. The Bill goes through, and you know, life goes, this is no way to run a government. Jane this plan all along. Okay. Listen, we're not going to get him the money because when we Republicans were in charge. We didn't want to give him a dime because we all have quotes where we say. The wall is stupid stupid idea. At least the senators all have quotes say wall is a stupid stupid idea. So let's do this. We'll just pass a little bit of money, then he can declare little national -mergency the courts can rule it unconstitutional, but the government's open so we're not gonna lose another five or ten points are approval ratings, and then with this prim court overturns that which they will then Donald can attack the United States have premium court in federal judges during his campaign, totally cynical. It's. It is amazing. Really? I mean, you know, I'm not a Republican never been a Republican that I did think the Republican party stood for something. And and it stands for nothing. Now stands for nothing except naked self interest and cowering fear of Donald Trump and his his holdover the Republican base. And so the fact that senators like, you know, the former Lindsey Graham, and and others are are actually cheering this on something. They know is unconstitutional. They know is wrong. They know was destructive. And yet they're cheering it on just so they can kinda get past. It is really ridiculous. You know there. It's going to be people this going to be historical accounting for those who refuse to stand up to this president. And I can't wait anything is they Stanford. Absolutely nothing. They could have had this done jour-. Tom. You hear his first? Sometimes from friends and family members and people that you run into zeppelin. Shows Boston concerts, but Boston concerts. Exactly. You know? There are always be somebody that will make mistake of saying. Oh, you so like you back when you were conservative, and by the way, that's kind of like, you know, go and he'd go. Hey, look at that. Hey, look about the boom, I it is so easy to just go. Oh, really, let me tell you what I stood for in nineteen Ninety-four Iran in nineteen Ninety-four balance budget Iran in nineteen Ninety-four to start paying down the debt Iran in nineteen ninety four to make government smaller Iran in nineteen ninety four to strengthen NATO Iran in nineteen ninety four to actually understand it. Russia was one of the great threats facing the United States of America and to keep America's Trump. I ran to protect the constitution the constitutional norm so much. I want carry around a constitution pocket. In fact, we all did because actually the constitution mattered. I actually went down to another country to see a liberal activist being tried in Peru and came back, and all I talked about was our courts and the rule of law and why it was judicial. System that set us apart from everybody, I talked about article one powers of congress, and we fought hard. I mean, Susie. I go on all day by this time. Of course, they've slipped like Homer Simpson that gift back into the bushes which right because they're not conservative. They're not even what Republicans have been since ABRAHAM LINCOLN, my party people say, you know, I remember you when you were conservative, and I say they say you're not a conservative anymore because you're critical of the president. And I'm like, no, I'm critical of the president because I'm a conservative because I believe in limited government owning that people are falling for this REU. Entire political party Republican party in the United States Senate specifically they are more afraid of being challenged on the right in a primary. They put that head of the country. They have done it historically for the last for at least the last two years, the fear that Trump and genders. I I don't know where I don't know the root of it. I think what you're seeing is that they value three institutions in order, the Senate the Republican party and then somewhere in there the constitution. But those first that the most important things are the institution there in the party, they serve and then because I think that happens after you've been in Washington long enough, you think they care more about Kolding onto the job than they do about holding onto the country. I think they've convinced themselves that those are the same thing that I have to do this. I think that a lot of the people that that we once lived with on the right have said to themselves. Well, this is a terrible thing. And I'm making some really terrible compromises, but I'm doing it for the good of the country because the alternatives are so bad. And I think they've just talk themselves into that to say to think of themselves as indispensable and that what they're doing is kind of the last bulwark against the deluge. I I've gotta say I have friends I've been friends with for thirty years. That I just I I I knew their Twitter feed. Because I don't if I keep reading what they say. I'm going to respond to it. And I don't want to respond to it because I've seen things come and go, I think unlike me, I think this fever passes and. Me fighting them on Twitter is not gonna do any good. But it is it does break you break, your heart. These people that stood shoulder to shoulder with you when you were fighting against. Things that you thought were bad for this country. Now, actually. Turned their conscience over they played it a blind trust for a lifelong democrat who is a con artist who who again contributed to Democrats his entire life until he decided to be a birther in two thousand eleven because. He assumed that the Republican primary voter was so racist that he could ride that the Republican nomination. I thought he was out of his mind. But you think the fever will break because I wonder if use the focal point of Lindsey Graham for the fever John McCain has been dead for less than six months. Right. And he was handcuffed to John McCain and everything John McCain felt and believed to and look at him now. Well, you know, what I was telling that gene Robinson said the former Lindsey Graham. Yeah. Almost you know to say, whoever that other guy was gone. There's this anew Senator called Lindsey Graham, gene linked to ram Senator. Jay. You're Lindsey Graham. That's kind of where we are people in South Carolina for years of wondered how Lindsey Graham wins primary races down for years, you go into South Carolina, Republican saying cannot believe that guy heaps winning Republican primaries. And this is all about Lindsey Graham wanting Republican primary eight he is proven. There is nothing. He will not do. There is no value. He will not throw over the side of the boat. There is no former friend our mentor that he will betray will betray to win that primary, and if you don't believe it just look at what Donald Trump has said about his dad friend, and how Lindsey has remained mute decided not to defend John McCain. It's really shocking. It really is. I mean, he you know, he decided that he to win his next primary. He has got to not only go along with Trump of be out front and be the sort of most vocal supporter of the president these decided that's what South Carolina Republicans want or South Carolina, Republican primary voters want, and that's what he's gonna give them. And and the betrayal of everything that he seemed to stand for in his Senate career is is just it's just shocking. It's just it's just amazing maybe his calculations correct. But but it's imagine what this is doing to his insides. I hope it's doing something. I think about this comes to the cost and also make you look so as institution goes he's now in charge of this. And that you share a committee here, we have the chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee actually pushing and encourage. Urging the president United States to move on constitutionally against article one powers right to move on constitutionally to seize power from congress that he knows as chairman of the Senate Judiciary committee. He knows it is an unconstitutional grab for our. And he is on the forefront encouraging Donald Trump to I hope you're right that the fever will pass. But I also think there's political fever and Lindsey is definitely got a high fever, but there's also damage to this country, and we're going to be playing for free while little bit later an extended version of what ongoing Merckel said over the weekend. Everyone was so excited that she said something countered Trump and had the focus on Vonk. What was fascinating was actually what she said. And we're gonna play a longer version of it that to me is the fever and the damage to our place in the world. The damage to our institutions, and how we look in the world order, everything has changed. There's been a tectonic shift if because of Trump we have gone down, and I think that impacts our national security among many other things good things that we are able to do. That fever is not gonna pass anytime soon. Thanks to Donald Trump will the most the most frightening part of all things not Donald Trump because I well, it's the damage. He's pass. It's the people who still two and a half years after the racism after the lies right for the breaching of constitutional norms after the embrace of Putin after the embrace of strong men around the world after the mocking of democratic values all over the world after the contempt. He has shown for democratically elected, traditional American allies fact that there are so many people that still support him and actually still come up and talk to me and say, how could you not support? Donald Trump is just that's what's concerning. Four out of ten Americans are still okay with the lies every day, the racism every day, and by the way. We could say that would help you all we could run a list of all the lies. And by the way, not lies. Matter wouldn't matter. We can show you before. And after tweet where it shows his own words proved that he's line. We could show you all the racist comments, right? Did you wouldn't care would you? It's like Roger stone. Roger stone puts a target puts a target by federal judges face. And you don't care about that. Now, you don't care you just don't care you think that's cool because he said deep state and been Ghazi and his explanation. And so now, he's apologized after posted that image on Instagram showing federal judge overseeing his trial. Next across hairs. And you've cool with that. Deleted later after being up for an hour. But of course, then register knows everybody saw the photo. Judge Amy Berman Jackson. Everybody saw the target that was next door. Had you don't care, and you don't care that your kids are growing up in this kind of world where a guy who vorts with people who vote with Russians has to explain that gets caught lying. The federal authorities and his aunts or getting caught lying. Federal authorities is target. Federal judges head. You don't care. And along with that target get this really rich, make sure to tell your kids this because I know you'll be proud of yourself for supporting this and not really caring about and just sort of wiping it out of your head. As you go often school today, you go off to work today with your make America great hat on along with the target next to the judges head was a fund raising pitch. For legal defense costs so much kill the judge semi five dollars. But here here's how you can help me. I get the target by the judges head. You can take that and kill the judge or you can Sydney money either way, I'm cool with it. Watch what Roger stone appears to be saying. And then took down the picture. And after he did that get a statement said it had been misinterpreted. Right. So in doubt that it was a lamb product, which fire the way, I made this mistake to and I turned in my high school graduation picture. I mistakenly turned in one where there was a target right by my mullet. You know, there was a target there. They see this is the thing. And by the way, everybody he was just joking joking about assassinating the federal judge. Just relax come on. It's Donald gives. Roger that's who does the mazy. That's the problem. And he does this in the country literally awash in gun violence. There's the real emergency, by the way. Yeah. There's so many mass shooter stove weekend. And he's he's a professional that. There are no mistakes this notion of while I didn't really understand this guy spends his life manipulating the media. He doesn't make mistakes that you found out you take back out the three worst things that have happened because of this fever the damage it's going to last is with people like Roger stone on the loose Americans would become convinced. The governing is not a serious business. Everything's just a joke. Everything's a gag. Everything's a prank. The other is that people who otherwise. No better keep walking up to you and saying how come you're not on our side hooking up. This are actually saying things they know not to be true. And they're repeating it and internalizing things that are not true by repetition. That's what Madeleine Albright would say is how it starts. I know. It sounds hysterical star really does reality Jean. What I just don't understand. This is my weakness. I don't understand how they could still support a guy and still support Roger stone and still take Roger stone. So other right wing radio talk show host will all be chirping today, Roger stone. We'll be talking about how he made a mistake or Oakham on they're taking this all too seriously. But again, this is what they do. And it's about impart at least, and maybe mainly it's about dehumanizing the other. It's about the humor. Denies ING those who oppose Donald Trump and what he's doing and the sort of the enemy of my enemy being my friend. I guess and so if it's it's okay if Roger stone crosses every conceivable line posting that abominable. Picture of the judge next across hairs. It's okay. If Donald Trump lies every time he opens his mouth, and by the way, sounds just totally incoherent in that in that press availability on Friday. It's okay. If he violates the constitution or tries to cynically knowing these going to be reversed what what does that matter because because those other people are worse, and he's on our side of the fence. And so we talk a lot about tribalism in politics. Try bows may be a factor in this. And. And I wish they taught civics. He's in everybody needs to say they want if you want federal funding for any of your schools. You've gotta teach civics, and I would submit Joe to cap off this conversation that there's a larger danger. Here involves more than just the people with the maga- hats around this country. It involves our friends people we encounter each and every day who through the constant behavior of this president. He is normalized lying. He is not normalized disruption and chaos and now the country's is so exhausted many of them shrug their show. Does get normalized. We talked about this before not too. Go into Bill Clinton. But I can tell you as the father of two sons who were in middle school during that time shape to shaped a generation as the lifespan savior we had three or four as that was going on. We had three or four emergency school meetings at the school. They went to because. Concerns of behavior that had shifted radically over two years what the president states does shapes behavior and values and valleys still ahead on morning, Joe. Russia's election hacking is only one facet and its worldwide influence campaign. There's a far more violent aspect of it as well. And that's playing out right now in Ukraine NBC's Bill Neely reports on the frontline war there. Plus rod Rosenstein exit has now just weeks away. Setting the stage for major change within the DOJ will run through the key things to watch four straight ahead. And we want to mention that. Hey, your band is playing again if you tomorrow at the cutting room, we'll do the best is up here in New York City. Do my ridge kicks off at seven o'clock stop by your around cutting room. But I go back to the cutting right now, it's going to be fun. I think Tom cope and say Tom seeing a whole lot of love you. Bring the lyrics. Give it a show. The fleas destroyed. All right, but first let's go to Bill Cairns with a check on the forecast. Bill got a huge winter storm. It's going to cause a lot of travel headaches for everyone from the eastern half of the country over the next two days. A ninety one million people so one in three people in our country is under either winter weather advisories or warnings or watches from New Mexico through the midwest. The Ohio valley, and even our friends there Roanoke through harrisonburg to Washington DC. And if you're not in the winter storm problems, you have flooding issues all through the south nineteen million people under flash flood watches northern Mississippi, Alabama, all of Tennessee eastern, Arkansas back through Kentucky. Let's talk snow. This is going to happen late tonight. And then you're gonna wake up to a snowstorm tomorrow. Morning washington. DC right now thinking about four five maybe at most six inches of snow even inside the beltway. If you're gonna head west. And that's where the heaviest totals will be Philadelphia. Baltimore more like three to four inches New York City a lot less than that maybe zero to about one maybe two at max. Same for Boston. Temperatures will be a little warmer in those areas and snow tonight considerable snow Dimona Minneapolis four to six inches few. And I mentioned that rain forecast. This area of red is three to four inches of rain all through the south in Tennessee valley rivers were already high in this area. So we're gonna have a lot of problems with snow and ice and also river flooding right through the weekend in areas of the south so Washington DC when you're bigger snowstorms of this winter is on its way a beautiful start to the day. More morning. That's shot will show us. No. You're watching morning Joe. We'll be right back. All right. Breaking news thought this was going to happen at seven little earlier Bernie Sanders jumping back into the presidential race. Again. He is running officially. I tell you what this is this is act to act to and it's going to be fascinating because everybody remembers for three years ago, Bernie Sanders energize the Democratic Party, and and young people in the somebody young people, you had an extraordinary fundraising base online. And also extrordinary grassroots opperations. He was fighting up hill most of the time because the Democratic Party establishment was all on board with Ellery Clinton. And as some people suggested parts of the process at times appeared to be skewed towards Hillary Clinton or others might say rigged, but Mike it's different year. And it was very easy. Then he was sort of like if you ever saw the matrix he was like Neo against the machine he was he was the outsider versus the establ-. Published -ment now he had that lane by himself. There's going he was right to and and was right. What that it was rigged was was how did that work out for him in the end. So so which by the way, Republicans rigging the process for Donald Trump. It's always the wrong. It's always wrong move. Make him fight. Make them scrap make earned the nomination, and that makes them better general election candidates. But now that lane is crowded you've got Cory Booker. You've got Kombucha harass. You Jill brand. I mean, I could go one eight hundred people that are filling up that lane. Elizabeth Warren, of course, will probably those two will be probably fighting for the same votes. More than anybody else on that list. It's again, it's it's going to be it's going to be a different run tougher run for Bernie this time. It's going to be a much tougher run from a wide and diverse and deep field. You get the anecdote impression right now. Kennel Harris's really on the verge of breaking out a little more than any other candidates. I think Bernie's time sadly for Bernie and the Bernie files. Mike careful, you know, in the review. Tempermental of that group that we just saw on the screen who temperamentally like it or not whether you want to see it or not can stand up to Trump because that's altuva. Democrats are looking for someone who can be Donald Trump, gene. Democrats want to win it. So funny intentionally to talking about ideology right now. Let me tell you something. This will shock all of my dear friends in the left on Twitter, and all of my dear friends and the right on Twitter, but ideology, at the end of the day just doesn't matter reminds me of the Mike Tyson, quote that I think the president even said to everybody has a plan until they get hit in the face. Well, everybody cares about ideology until the first time that candidate grabs a microphone starts talking. And she are he owns to room. Then forget about ideology, it becomes about leadership. Maybe that's Bernie's. Path. Maybe maybe look Bernie comes in with a with a with a base. I mean, he come to the ready has a base. He he's he's run nationwide. I got people out there. Every state who were who are going to be back on the burning train. But as as was said, this is this is a much different year. And what what I think Democrats are looking for is somebody's gonna be Donald Trump. And of these many candidates, this multitude. You know, a few are going to stand out they're going to capture the imagination. So I'm haven't gotten in yet who I think could be major players this time. And and we will see I hope they fight it out. And and we'll see who emerges. But at this stage. I think you know, everybody jump in. And we'll see really captures the imagination of Democrats. And who looks like somebody who can not only stand up to but defeat Donald Trump. And I, you know, I think will get a sense of that. And they'll let us know what they think. Okay. Make it. You said you saw we. We could stage basically tell the president. You're a wire. Yeah. Well, and also you want to be able to stand on the stage and operate from your gut go with your gut speak from your gut your instincts. What your beliefs are as if you answer to no one that's hard to do which hook. A hook co. We all forty five of them. So don't don't say those two right now, I'm gonna write them down on a piece of paper. And we're going to go. I'm thinking. Don't open it because they're not who you think the big question. Mark is going to be. What is Joe Biden? Choose to do to do it. Yeah. Well, you know, it's very interesting. One of the things that that should be concerning Democrats themselves had the pull out yesterday, Joe Biden up by ten points and everybody else is basically within the margin of error and again with Donald Trump at his worst. And with these candidates just starting off at their best without being dinged up still within the margin of error. I will be the first to admit I thought that the. And I wrote it in the Washington Post about a month ago. The democratic nomination was going to be more important than ever before. Because you'd just be step away from the Oval Office. It's not looking that way. Now I- month later, it's not looking that what I've spent years telling democratic friends look part of the reason Republican parties in the shape, it is because we were able to simply default to use growing up that the Republicans could just sort of sit back and say, look, the Democrats are going to just mess this up. They're going to have a messy primary. They're not gonna show they're gonna blow turn out. And that's that's really a problem. I think in some ways the Democrats are risking replicating. With Republicans did the last time around you're gonna twenty candidates some of whom are instant no-hopers personally as a former resident of Senator Sanders state. He another Bernie Sanders candidacy to me as an answer to a question. Nobody's asking he he served a very important role in two thousand sixteen to say, this is a real primary the election, isn't rigged. If you want someone who's more exciting than Hillary Clinton. I'm the person there. Plenty of exciting people running this way. So I think, you know, at some point I'm a little more optimistic than your job because I think this will get itself sorted out. That right now, people are expressing preferences and excitement that's going to coalesce. But I don't know who it's going to coalesce around. I don't know who the names because of my per what's interesting is is Bernie again was was a guy that after the election was over you had people saying that voted for Donald Trump. Well, I would vote for Bernie. That's correct. If if ranking. Directing traffic nominee, which again proves again. It's like people voted for Obama to times, George W Bush two times voted for Donald Trump. It's not about ideology in Bernie does speak to a lot of disaffected people especially across the upper midwest. See down. I'm not gonna announce it pleadings, you know, you have to keep opening gift to keep opening all. Isn't it isn't this where we tell them passing out for? So interesting, right. Okay. So before we go to break because we'll continue this conversation. Here is no threat. Right L exalt screaming. We're going to continue this conversation. But as we go to break than Kamla Harris in her pre Pado, you don't own you told the agenda the by now, you're saying you don't have the by. Okay now. We're right back morning.

Who has helped over sixteen hundred close to eighteen hundred seniors. Get their vaccine appointments. What's a vaccine helper. dot com. Great good for him fantastic. So that's a nice. Feel good story can bring it right back down. Yes exactly because we're good at that. You know if if if you just wanna find out who is your biological father and you just go and you take a dna test and then you find out. He's a mass murderer. So you checked out. And he's like on the top. Five of the fbi most wanted list. I think there's a lot of stuff with family things you don't want to know well. And in this case though was the guy still like on the lamb or thirty in custody. No i think he's still wanted. Oh jeez so now now. It's public that this girl. This woman is this guy's biological daughter. I hope the fbi gives her protection. He might come looking for really. Yeah but the people he killed was his whole family. Here is the details. She's in north carolina. Right her name. Is cathy gilchrist in when she did the dna tests you obviously as a long lost biological father. Here's her telling the story because it really is incredible. Okay i found your father. All i'm going to do is give you his name. I said well is it someone famous and she said and i thought of course. My father's herder. Oh my goodness mass murderer. Can you imagine you gonna do that. And they come back and they say oh. Yeah your father. He was famous ted bundy. Y- that's like that's what that's that's like about. The dna lady was going to ill kinda he's he's currently on. The fbi's most wanted list for murdering five family members. Back in one thousand nine hundred seventy six so it doesn't she. I don't know how old kathy gilchrist is. Doesn't she now have to look at this. Hopefully as a blessing in disguise on answered prayers. That could have been her well. yeah. I mean if she were a member of his family and wasn't like you know a obviously she was abandoned somewhere or her father had an affair with her mother. Yeah she could have been part at family. They got killed just can put. I'd be concerned now though if he's still loose. And now you're on national television dylan everybody. This guy's your father you get the fbi to they're like okay. What else did you learn. Who do you know where your relatives do. They know him where he is do. They know he's on the most wanted list. How trough by the way. That's all on eight fifty w. f. d. l. dot com. Yep morning so blog. Thanks that's really nice of you to put that up there. Amazing stories are really. It's an incredible story in the headlines. We got Your stimulus checks should be in the mail so to speak to you next week because today it goes through the it's not going to have any challenges in the house as one point nine trillion dollars. It's fourteen hundred bucks to you and that's about it and they make a big deal out of it today march it like they did last time from the senate to the house. It like. it's a you know a funeral procession. But this time it would be like they would hold it high in the air because it's like you know. Hold it in that little. They're gonna have a boombox going to have their little thing member. It looked like the holy grail recovering an at handles. It was a wooden box and that was the impeachment opinion. Yeah they're showman aren't they really are so. I wonder if they're going to do that today. And you will see nancy pelosi everywhere today every grace. She's going to take full credit for getting that money and taking care of the working people of america. And i can't even be angry at them for taking credit. I'm more angry at people like mitch. Mcconnell who just sat back and did nothing. He made this happen. Just you could have when you had the majority in the senate try to work something out to get the people what they were looking for with. You know the fourteen hundred dollar checks or two thousand dollar checks and still avoid all this pork from going through instead. You just sat there and did nothing. It's just useless absolutely and they're believe me diener. You're right there a republican pet projects in there. Yeah absolutely nothing. Like where bailing out every blue state. There was every single one's getting billions of dollars. That's the most i mean. There's a lot of infuriating things in this. Obviously but that's the most of all. Secondly i would have to be prisoners getting getting cash getting on this. That's in here too. Yeah okay like death row. Inmates wonderful getting paid the same. Fourteen hundred bucks. You are as a hard working non-criminal in this country paying the taxes that take care of that criminal. That's getting the money everything that's saying they push for the had two thousand dollar straight checks to everybody not part of stimulus package which was a a wishlist for these cronies. We the he proposed. Trump proposed that five months ago. It had it could've probably would've won the election. had mitch. mcconnell pushed it through but diener said he just sat. there did nothing. Okay good news. it's great news. I love this because they've identified. It's a mixture of like advertising and pop culture their identity the most memorable. They say advertising jingles. And you know what i think. The reason the one that won the first one one is because it's still popular today because of a country artist. Yeah i think he he or less revolutionized when he rewrote it got time to kill. So let's do it like a countdown. Do you think number three is well. You know i can't. I don't agree with that at all. Not number three now. not at all. I tell you people here this though they know exactly what you're talking about. Oh god that. I i try to because i thought it was so annoying. I don't like it. They bought a lot of time. They commercial. I think it's still on. What is that thing that he blows through. What do you call horn over the mountains. The bighorn over the mountain Number two. I agree with but i think they got the wrong jingle. I would have said two. All beef patties special sauce lettuce Right sesame seed bun which came out thirty five years ago and everybody. That was around for that time in till this day. No that song. That's right but they pick something else kidney. Now have no attention span. So they can't remember. I wish panels but they remember this back. That's been around. By the way. I think longer than the j two all beef patties was a solid twenty year since i agree with that one. That definitely remember where they made a big deal out of it. I think justin timberlake like one of the first ones or something. Yeah so yeah. That's been around for a while at your generation. Get here. that's donald. We wanted me but number one. I do believe is because of the commercials they run today with two of the probably most recognized personalities around you get brad paisley and peyton manning nationwide his own yours whether revived in any. They revived it. And they did a whole campaign commercials with peyton manning sitting in while brad paisley's trying to rewrite the song put a little spin on it and he's like that sticks in real i think the one that probably helps it stick for awhile to was the old member chicken parm. You taste so good. Yeah that's right. He did it the two of a. Oh i see. I missed that whole jingle put. Yeah i remember the nationwide five his suffering gold on television. And i love him. I i don't know much about his football career. But i love him on. Tv he's great. He was great when they did that. Brad pitt you've got to one of these days. Go look brad paisley christmas special. That he did peyton. Manning was hysterical and that he was the the stage manager and he kept on telling brad paisley. I'm going to replace you with your backup and the backup. Was tim mcgraw. And he comes out and brad paisley's wife's like okay going him. It was cute. It was it was done well and was decent. Football player mean through a few touchdowns in his career. Good feel peyton. I do like him. I was surprised. I'm like no Liberty that one liberty liberty holidays right. That whole thing only gave us the top three really. I don't know what the rest like look at this been more. It's weird with james. it's been more like phrases and catchphrases that have caught on yahoo jingles. The where's the beef was has always number one as far as words from a commercial campaign things like that you remember but They just saw what they showed. A whole series of clear up ella. Where's the beef commercials. I don't know what the hell i was watching i serving. I remember as a kid when those came. I was laughing. There's a lady. She drives like a maniac. She and throw momma from the train was at her. Oh i think so was really there. No or is that actress. It looks like i care. Yesterday we had a whole conversation about How eddie murphy had said he wanted to go back on the road right right. Isn't that what we talked about. They also are now out with the list. A scientific list of the best standup comics ever science science. So you'll be happy to know that. Who's your favorite comedian richard. Pryor richard pryor comes intent on this list through without immediate pen on the list right ten. What they did was they had twenty seven more than twenty seven hundred stand up comics and then they got comedian fans to pick the top one hundred and then they said hot. They made them watch specials by each of these these comedians. whoever latte made them laugh the most one number one on the list with four minutes fifty one seconds of laughter in one hour. Robin williams Number two eddie murphy. Oh there you go and funny about it. Number three red fox. We talked about. Wow that's like wow heading now. Four minutes eleven seconds of laughter and one hour of the show. Young people this stuff i died. They showed everybody. This stuff was a bunch of people. My theory is and they give. You could show college kids now like red fox richard. Pryor eddie murphy. Couldn't handle it yet. I don't think they can handle eight melt. They would jim carey came in fourth. I will disagree with that his standup. I mean funnier movies now and as of late that funny. What's that show he does. Now whatever the hell it's is horrible donating funny in fifteen years bernie mac and joan rivers. Dave chapelle was seventh. Dave chapelle was seven. Where's jerry seinfeld. Really jerry seinfeld mountain not not not in the top twenty. Wow they're right. Yeah the only girl on the list take a guess ellen now really her stand with. She's elaine booze now this girl. She's funny but she's really like Roseanne lisa pinelli tiffany haddish. Oh jeez he's not funny. No tiffany haddish. And i think it's probably because all those movies issues on founder phil just. He's the only one speaking of entertainment There's a lot of disney news to talk about not to give them free plugs here but they're in they're in the news news and then there's releases coming out here that affect them gan. There's other news stuff where they're putting warnings on everything everything because of his cancel culture crap. I see things like flashing lights may cause problems. I'm like okay. This cartoon character that's been around for seventy years may horrify your child. It's ridiculous really that more coming up next these little morning show is here news. Talk eight fifty w. f. t. l. e. south florida morning show. This is deana. Bill got more news coming up in about eight and a half minutes or so right around there and just give a little headline update will start with the good news. governor rod santa's is saying for the most part. There's a little lag in reporting but we have pretty much reached. Three million people vaccinated in the state of florida. That wonderful the only good news and even better news on top of that as we all know that starting on monday sixty to sixty four you can qualify now to make it to get the vaccine but Another hospital in broward and i'm assuming it do we know any hospitals appear that gut the vaccine because they had the ability to stored remember. It was the whole problem was having the facilities to store it But joe dimaggio hospital now giving out the vaccine to sixteen year olds and above with pre existing conditions. So if you have a child falls into that category you may want to get in touch with them. So it's pretty cool so that's nice you know it's it's because a lot of people are worried about their children. Can't blame them right. I'd be worried about him to all right. Here we go to The entertainment thing that and disney is all over every one of these stories. Some of it's good for them. Some of its bad for them will start with the good stuff. They got big release coming out here so that the much anticipated on disney plus Falcon does that come out this weekend. I wanted to say they said it was like march thirteenth. That's coming out. It's fell can winter soldier thing the trailers out. Yes the taylor's out. Bucky their boy. You've got old but he's a good looking guy but he's he's lucky fund were bucky found work. But i don't forget what his name is but he's really funny in the trailers they they just released a new trailer. Hysterical on my. I'm gonna watch it just because the ad. I'm looking forward to that. That comes out march nineteenth at this week Okay so and then you've got This word coming out of orlando that walt disney world itself is sold out of tickets for spring break. That will tell you. They're going to be fine coming back here and i would imagine disneyland california. Yeah as they finally gotten some all clear stuff. They're gonna they're gonna open. I don't know. I think it's like twenty five percent capacity at the end of april because they got the state to change the tier they were on flying The numbers are up tourist destinations up. I think the fear is going down and we'll take that as an indicator and go look go look at daytona beach right now with boutique in all those people didn't come from florida. I mean there are hundreds of thousands of people there right and and yeah people are willing the first thing everybody says they wanna do. Stick a vacation exactly and there's a lot of people here that are leaving for vacations. I was kinda shocked. I was like. Wow i believe it every going away. Good good for them you know. Get on a plane. Have a good time. Go do what you gotta do. Wanna leave that beautiful weather. Free state afloat and go to a lockdown state. And the funny part. Is there everybody that i know. That's going to vacation going someplace cold. Why had enough of that nice weather. I my one of my truth things is. You're taking me on vacation at better. Be warmer than here or just as nice as here on going and then it gets Controversial with disney doesn't really matter this won't affect them either way but several classic movies being removed from the kids profiles on disney plus lot. Which ones because of racist and stereotypical representations. Are you kidding. No they added remember this last week or the week before they added warnings to films that include peter pan dumble swiss family ruckus circle back. What's wrong with dumbo. Because he gets it he's an orphan. Maybe it was hunting. There's a crow named jim. Oh that was in dumbo. The right yes oh Swiss family robinson i. I can't like it. what's happening there and aristocrats. What's wrong with the aristocats. Two cats is there like aristocrats once toity and the other one lives on the street. I recently just saw that movie too. And i can't think of anything that would require of you. Know what he the warning label. You know what. It is the siamese cats from lady and the tramp there in that movie that the the dancing were all the catcher singing. Everybody wants to be a cat. Cats make an appearance of siamese cats and they have you know like the stereotypical slanty is like they do in lady and the tramp. So i think it's i don't know that for sure but that's the only thing i can think of because those cats appear in that one scene. That's ridiculous that's the only thing i can think of. I don't know if that's true or not. that's ridiculous. If disney had released an explanation they had a big stockholders call yesterday. I think that's where this is coming from. Explain some of the inappropriate scenes in each of the movies Its website they're still available under regular disney plus profiles. But they don't want these you know you can't have these kids on their own firing up the tv and watching aristocrats. I tell you boy. Oh my god. It'll bend their little minds. It's silly anyway. Because anytime you watch disney plus and i can tell you from experience with my kids. They're just clicking on my name on my wife's name anyway. We don't really have a profile built for them. It's me or kristen. And they just go on one of those and they watch their mouth. I mean so. It's i would find moulin the live action one more disturbing for a little kid than anything else. I still pretty dark film. It's good but it's not for a little kids now like the cartoon one. There's no anywhere she kills everybody. Yeah i mean they kill a lot of people that suffer a little kid. So why don't that. Isn't that come with a warning. Coli keeps going on remotely at ucf. She has access to our disney plus yes and changing all of our profiles. There's the new. I am now. Darth maul model. Show you the picture you are is is From mine credible. Funny holy made herself the little kid from Mike was asking. Oh yeah little. Boo little monsters inc and i don't know who she made in yellow a little little cat and all the aristocrats. Oh yes that's her. Yeah marie the little kiddy show. That's funny she sixteen. She can't go on her own profile and they also had. This is the other part of disney. They had the The stockholders call in the call came. I don't know whether it's the press or from the stockholders the asked about the whole gina carano firing. I think it was the press that. Ask that question. Yes and they said New bob the new. Ceo new. Bob genyk if she was blacklisted from any of their other companies future projects and he said he responded by saying he doesn't think disney's left-leaning or right-leaning brealey. The company does stand for universal values of respect decency integrity inclusion. He was the reason she was fired. After she tweeted comparing. Us political climate to nazi germany. Where citizens are turning in other citizens. That's right over over. Cancel culture which wound up cancelling her right. He didn't the rest that now he kind of skirted it kind of like. It's a challenge at the border. Not a crisis right. it's on the wording. It's all how you put it together. Bill speaking of people turning each other. Yeah had a whole plane full of people turning on a guy that wouldn't wear mask on a plane but what they said to him was kinda mean. This is what's happening now though. I hate the big brother aspect of. We're all reading each other out but we got that it was too. They had to stop in florida by the way floor. Was it here. We'll find out coming up next south florida morning. Show this a bill. Keep it here. Talk eight fifty w. f. t. l. d. south florida morning show is jan. There's steeler bill cairns got more news on the way we got some news by the way. There's a little in house stuff but it affects you a lot of you. We're told sometimes they give us the research you listen on the app or you stream will the the eight fifty app is all new. You can either like get the updated version you know and you when you go to your app store or just get it for the first time if you're not on it if you're a registered user name in there between now and the thirty first of the month you can enter for a window wins a chance to win some cash. Five hundred bucks. That's listen on the app. So just think you know what. Maybe there's nothing. Aggravates me more than when i go through a car wash and you lose the signal. It's like i know exactly but anywhere you go like. If you're walking on the beach or your bicycle you can listen to eight fifty. Wfl all day anywhere. It works well and you can win money now. The app is really good. It really is so go register today and good luck you could win. Five hundred bucks very good Some stuff in the headlines more on the border crisis. Don't call it a crisis. We accusing number six for cuomo. That's happening to covid. Nineteen checks will probably be arriving sometime next week because the house will pass it today. I was thinking about this. Ever since you said it last segment they are going to make this a all. It's going to be a big deal dog and pony show today. It will be gold pens and feathers and comedy times. Does the president asked. Nancy pelosi to do you want me to ask and answer questions. Is this where sign here nancy. You know it's because he's gotta sign it and he's already said he's gonna sign it once it goes to the house so and they're going to stamp i shouldn't even call this covert relief. What a slap in the is. It's absurd because it's anything but cova. Yeah where everyone's getting a check. Who who makes seventy thousand dollars or less a year. You'll get a check. Your children get a check families. Get checks in you get money but so do people in prison. Wow really oh yeah. And then they get but it was. Did i've heard it was like twelve percent of it was actually covid. Nineteen related all. The rest was basically bail out money for bad states and bad financial decisions for everybody. Not just the democrats but for the republicans as well mail in new york or on california time all of them all all of them anyway. All right This of you'll hear this and you'll say good. You know what guy deserved it. But i think there's a disturbing trend going on here you see it in airplanes because it's an enclosed environment. It's high stress these days anyway but you see it in stores to see it schools. You see it and you know just regular everyday business. People ganging up on the maskless. Yeah well in this guy in l. i can understand people getting upset but was there a reason for it was the guy just being a jerk because they had to make an emergency landing right here in our state. Where were they going jamaica or something. Where are they on their way to. It was forced to land in fort. Lauderdale oh actually so. It's really close to home but was headed from new york to cancun so people vacation right right so they should have been in a good mood and it was diverted though. Because i understand this frustration part of it because of the guys mask issue when they were fighting with the not literally but arguing with the flight attendant. So they said enough of this. We're gonna land in fort lauderdale. I get that. I get the frustration. Just put yourself six months down the road though and imagine the same scenario where somebody is saying. I'm i'm fully vaccinated i. I'm totally fine. Writes direct and still a group of a gaggle of jackals gang up on somebody. Could you not see this happen without a doubt. They may have been justified in this case because hey they're flight was diverted in. They're trying to go on vacation but still would not see this happening without a doubt. Listen to what they say. Though to this guy. Yeah this is what counts is the taunt. They came up with the guy who hope you get eaten by an alligator. I'll give i all right. I'm with what the crowd on this one because the guy caused in in one way or another their flight to be diverted and atlanta lottery on delay. I get it. But i'm telling you months down the road we're going to have the fully vaccinated fully immune walking around in their face. This kind of backlash from the ultra. Ultra fearmongering paranoid among us. Well and that's and that's gonna stink and and that's when you're going to need that little card that says see my shots and that's where we'll be like okay. You know what. Give me the. give me that card. And they're going to well. I got a feeling we're gonna make make you proof. I bet you even if you you prove you have the vaccine. They're gonna tell you to wear a mask on a airplane. Yeah that's why i'm not flying. Just another reason for me not to get on a plane just saying i'm not gonna sit on a six hour flight with a mask on i. I'd go nuts. it's not fun. I don't know how. I don't know how people wear one all day. God love ya. Let me tell you not me tell you something to. If you're just getting your you gonna become a dermatologist. You just getting out of medical school while you're going to do very well yes you are. This thing is destroy these things at destroying skin. They are that and child. Psychologists are going to do extremely well over the next ten years. I don't imagine a Without home tutors. Because that's going to be a big hit to cause these kids have to catch up doing. Id diener you probably don't know this is going to incense bill. This story remember the ice cream company. Brigham brigham soon. Brigham scream screamed. Have jimmy's in a little. Jimmy's they put on the ice cream cones and the ice cream cups. I started a huge argument in my family. My brother's name is. Jim highly offended that they were. Jimmy's said why aren't they. Billy's i want billy's you can call up your brother today in say they cancelled you. The brigham ice cream company has changed the name of just. Jimmy's which if you're not from new england you may not know those those little sprinkles that you put on your ice cream colored ones and the chocolate ones and whatever because they say before the backlash hits over the history of the term jimmy and it's not clear exactly where it came from but some say it could be related to jim crow. Oh that's the stupidest thing i've ever heard my entire life. Well they changed the domini our to me that the chocolate jimmy sprinkles are named after jim crow. Get the hell out of here with this. Well they have officially changed the name. To just sprinkles i'm done i've jeans anymore. Just sprinkle let me tell you something to this is so ingrained in new england culture and he will. No one will ever not call them. Jimmy yeah i. It's kind of like when you go in. And you get a grinder on. Do they call them. Grinders in massachusetts and rhode island people down. This is a grinder. he'd go i wanna grind or you look at that people. Are they say that around here. They look into what that was wrong with you. Yeah i never did get that. Just interject on this one. Where did i come from. I don't know. I have no idea grind. I had a. I had a buddy of mine say that one time we're going on one at work and i really love grinder. I'm like are you talking about just going to lunch happening. Maybe it was because like the sliced deli meat. Go through. maybe that's it. i don't know i. I don't know where it came from. Don't only in rhode island. We get good. There is other things in rhode island. You don't have to tell frozen lemonade. Which is the greatest need though. I do dallas by far the best. Really i mean i think it was the original. It's been there forever. and What else do we have italian ice. Well okay. so we're supposed to spot for it. Because i love like limited talian. Ice so was was rhode island. Good for that northeast. Good for that all. Yeah on the street and the little wooden exactly yeah. He's gotta go to boston for that though. Like the north. Now yeah and lemon shallows. Just go to italy right best place. We're just really going to let that lie and to the side. The is no victim of cancel culture. I'm just telling you kidding. The before. And i said mr coffees in trouble people. The people have no sense of humor. You said it yesterday. They look for the bad in everything. They assume anything that's been around for more than ten. Years was based on something that was either related the civil war or to a bad person. It's gotta be schools right. I gotta be getting this school. I don't know where they got it from. The brigham ice cream company changed the name before there was a backlash over there little. Jimmy's you know if they just listened to me in one thousand nine hundred seventy five if they switched it to. Billy's i call that boozer billy carter or something and another reason. This cancel you. Well i was telling bill. Release over this over this past weekend. They were trying to get rid of the bernstein bears because they had a book called.

Had these little chocolate sprinkles call jimmy one region of the country that these are now been canceled to and they changed the name to billy's it's should've you should write him a letter. Now see i told you. Give that usa suggestion forty years ago. You ignored me. Jerks anyway So those are like nine losses in in the war against cancel culture but we got one win we do one win and go we go to texas again for this one. Texas is becoming our goto state We all know that pepi lapierre written out of the new space jam sequel on the for next. Don't rifle through it now. We don't have a lot to go but also in texas. They're burning masks by the way really. They're also leading the nation in that. I love tex. Might be all texas. Next could be be south florida morning. Show has janae bill here. He south florida morning show. There's gender diener a bill get news in about ten minutes for you. Don't forget we told you a few times this morning. Get the app if you haven't gotten ready to eat fifty mobile app. It's really good and not only. Is it really good but you gotta do is. It's free you download it and then you just register and if you do that registration between today and march thirty first you qualify to win five hundred bucks which we could win. That's the app change the name. Jeez wow just. Don't let anybody in marketing now. We'll work our way around that all right we're going to. We're going to texas for this. I this is a big day. Actually we're in. Oh the the cnn's of the world are already see. Texas is going. To cause the fourth way out please mask mandate instigate okay and all this means god. We re repeated this a thousand times. But if you listen to cnn you know greg abbott Is it. what's his name. Is greg abbott. Yep yep okay. He's killing people. The only thing that governor did in texas was i'm lifting. These state mandate from mask wearing which means if you go into a ralphs grocery store in texas and the sign on the outside says where a mask you gotta wear a mask exactly because the store has the right. It's their stores right to say. You need to wear masks to come into our store if you don't they'll throw you out but you won't be arrested. It just decriminalized and it gives everybody every business every person the right to live their life and make their own decisions. That's all it does to your point. Here's a cat. George kellerman from the texas retailers association. I think pretty much saying the same thing we saw signs. No shoes no service. You know we're entering into a very similar sort of scenario except it's masks and it a little bit more politically charged. in fact. he's right. I think it was target. That said were going to still keep our requirement. And i can't imagine any big corporation or you know or a place like a home depot or lowe's or supermarket where you know. They see thousands of people. A day is going to take down the mask mandate however. Here's where the you're gonna need that scarlet letter that proves you got us shot because what if somebody who's had the vaccine says you know i'm done with these damn masks. I had the vaccine. But you don't have proof of it in a gaggle of of moms target will attack you for that. Yeah and you know it's going to happen. That's what i'm afraid of the exact. It'd be going to be so much confusion although listen to this though. Here's one reaction to the to. The texas deal a group of jewish conservatives in texas. They're going to celebrate today. The lifting of the statewide mask mandate with a mess mask burning. Wow the dallas jewish conservatives group mask burning party. They have an online advertisement for the outdoor event. They say it's the official texas now. Open party hashtag. Burn the mask holy cow. Well that's something well remember. You know what it seems that And i can understand why. It's a jewish community it with if it weren't for the jewish communities not only in california but in new york there never would have been any synagogues temples or a religious gatherings in a church. Remember that either them in both states and they fought for it. They won in the supreme court. So that's probably why they're doing this damn right. This is what they put in the ad. You can burn your mess in a communal bonfire while enjoying entertainment and refreshments. Well that sounds like come on. I wanna be there horrible. I i you know what i betcha. This opens up the door though and good for them for doing this. Because i bet you there's going to be masked burning parties everywhere. I i d s e every. It'll it'll happen here. They said it's going to be like the roaring twenties when this all goes through. So it's going to be like that also in texas. We got to win. Jen finally a win. You know what if you missed the the thing about peppy lapel. Everyone was putting rest in peace peppy loop yesterday on social media that everyone's like what's going on like it just because he got caught out of space jam to and even the girl that was in the scene with pepsi lopez when the movie was like you're missing the point because the creepy little skunk gets his butt kicked by the woman that he's trying to kiss her arm. Yeah she beats them up and throw them out of the bar but she was even upset that the scene was cut. Maybe it's be mature only seen and that's why she was upset but peppy. Lobue will live on forever according to six flags over texas apparently the looney tunes characters been there forever He's a huge part of it and six flags like now. He's not leaving. Peppy will stay. He's not going anywhere. And i'm like good for texas. In fact we're expanding it. We now have the sexual harassment. Ride no you know what they're gonna get one fish two fish blue fish because they're gonna shut that thing down. Send it to six flags over texas. They'll take it you know what though good for one corporation to stand up against the mainly these. I'm telling you we're going to go get some jimmy's ope sprinkles. We're going to go get some of those today. Billy even reached me over. This cancelling jimmy's overnight. Anyway maybe we'll talk more about billy's making a comeback. We'll be back tomorrow morning at six. Thanks for listening to have a great day and we hope to see you tomorrow morning. Ram truck month is going on now.

"South florida morning. Show with jennifer. Ross in bill adams on newstalk eight fifty w. mtl took a virtual tour of vaccination center. Ona what long ago. What what did he say. Now in president harrison i took A virtual tour of actually zona not long ago. How many three now. He said that it's burnin. Who was hard drive. I'm sorry diener. Yeah try to it anymore. That's that's a little concerning you know when when on the campaign trail when biden with seeing that we thought okay. Maybe that's just a little slip and he just keeps saying president harrison. He knows it's burned in. He knows it he knows this is an old guy. Dementia kind of thing. He knows the truth and he can't the filters gone. That's exactly what this is and you know what the amazing thing too and this. This is the thing that gets me. The most when he says president harris. No-one corrects him. No there's no. I mean there's there's no reporter there. There's no administrator there that says sir you're actually the president like they just let it go. Is it going to get help. This poor man because in the background in the scene and in my head. I always imagine a future. President harris is actually right there by the side off camera. And she's going. I hate to think that way but look took said it. I mean everybody's kind of like no one correct anymore. nobody could. They used to come out with a statement. Well he just misspoke now. They're like yeah. Yeah yeah yeah it's it's coming. They just let it go. How did not think that. I mean anytime you see anytime you see him speak. It's clear to anyone watching that. He's not all there. I mean sorry to say it but it's shouldn't be that controversial. It's pretty easy to tell. You always wondered the whole time since he's been office really on the campaign trail here recently. You know right before january twentieth. This this was the case in other politicians felt that way to go to matt gaetz from florida. Talking to hannity about this very same subject last night when it comes to the harris relationship everyone in washington knows that every time kamala harris shakes the hand of joe biden. She's checking his pulse. Show just diabolical. It's a shame. Dan is just awful. And i'll say this i don't listen after what they did. They they ran. They're calling all trump supporters not season things that they said about trump and the fake folks. Don't feel bad. i don't feel bad at all. I know making it worse. Not really. I don't think it could get worse now. I mean i i. I hate to be well. You did it to us. So we're going to do it to you. But honestly i don't think we can say or do anything worse that they did. The trump supporters were said about trump supporters over the past four years. I mean they. They put trump and any of his supporters to hell over the past. Four years were ostracized. Oh absolute fire from your jobs. I mean just horrible things they tried to ruin your life because if we liked as the president so i i'm kinda with you i mean i don't feel bad. I shown i tried to feel in the end. It's like know. How can i know they'll feel bad at all. I really don't it's it's a shame was a bad day. Overall the administration. We'll get to the thing. China embarrass them. Those meetings in alaska. Yesterday we'll get to that in a little while because it takes a while to play the chinese response through a translator. They basically said you're in no position to to talk to us about it from a bad start to finish day china russia. It was all bad and then in the press room little slip of the tongue that happened. Did you hear this. There have been there. Have there have been expectation. Set outside of unrelated to Any vaccine doses or request for them that they would be partners in dealing with the crisis on the border. Oh jockey it's a crisis on the border now is it. And as soon as she said it. You've got to see the video. Was you put it on the blog. 'cause it's like a little mean to say that. Oh no so. Then she gets challenged on it right. This is what you got to see. How snippy she gets at the end. Oh yes she can get a little Talkback you sometimes. Here's a reporter at the beginning going. you just said Crisis when you're talking ago about taxation in mexico You said prices on. The order is without a challenge is on the border. She went into that soccer mom turning around the minivan mode right challenges. Yes go on. Tell what day aren't this enough of the politics jen's off today. We told you that she was taking the weekend a little early. So but tomorrow did you realize this. I don't think it matters in florida too much dinner tomorrow. The first day of spring really did not come up really quickly. It seems. I gotta tell you i completely forgot it. Matters matters to people in really cold. Weather climates yeah. I mean it's they still may get crappy weather but somehow hope on the horizon for them. You don't want to think it is for us through because it actually has been like a nice winter. We've had some cold weather. I mean heck. I had frost in my car a few weeks before. But it also gets so hot like we go from mid seventies to all of a sudden. It's ninety degrees. We've already started to feel that summer weather a little bit. So i honestly forgot right i to just like endless season we have two seasons. We really do for the winter seasons like two days. Yeah it's been a nice winter though. We can't complain about anything been. Weather's supposed to be nice this weekend. So nice way to finish springs mid seventy s. I did not pay any attention whatsoever to the tournaments in games. But you're a sports director for the cluster. They'll pressure everybody but was it good and one excited. Yeah i'm excited actually. I got my bracket filled out. So i'm going to be that guy where it's like. I wanna to tell you all about my bracket care about my bracket don't care. Did you hear this yesterday. Though that they're expecting the all time record for the amount of online gambling people filling up they could fifty million people. Five oh wow or involved or paid attention in some way shape or form to the tournament this year. Really fifty million people. That's that's good. Gosh that's a lot of people a huge chunk of the country. I mean we have three hundred and fifty million people in the country somewhere around there. And that's just that's including everybody so you don't have toddlers. Fill out brackets. Maybe some families do maybe soon. That topic probably beat me. I don't know and wild out. I'm looking forward to it. It's gonna be really fun. Some games last night on the planes they were good. Yeah yeah drexel. One of the drexel come on. Come on bill jackson won. They beat the shockers. Which does status out. Where were you had the shockers going. All the way man on muslim. Good stuff well. It's the only way the shockers get eliminated. A buzzer beater because my bracket i didn't fill out of sorry. Hey we've got an update coming up next. We'll get to the china embarrassing us horrifying story coming up next. But also this do you remember. Actually you were out so it's a it's an update for everybody else. There was a maskless woman who got thrown out of a arrested at a texas bank allow. She got arrested again at an office. Depot wow this story. what here was. We'll have the audio for you. When she got arrested at the bank she goes. This is police harassment. The whole bank goes no. It's not get out. Maskless renegade she. She is wow. She's got arrested again. Update on her coming up next these south florida morning. Show keep it here. Go from karen to karen. It's the statue of liberty play. Well that the old hand off to self. It's coming up news. That's coming up at six thirty now that my computers working. Oh my god happy friday. Everybody we made it. I know my first day of spring tomorrow as it matter for us in florida no really going to get hotter pretty much. Time is flying by. Where did it all go. I don't know but this happened. We are alleging that november florida senate district thirty seven election involved crimes. Apparently there was a ghost candidate. Alex rodriguez the republican. Who didn't really exist was on the ballot. I don't know if it was supposed to be a rub. But he ran against not exist for most of his career disappeared the playoffs many times. Sorry you're talking about a different one. Yes whoops he was well he was no lebron. James republican challenger ultimately was defeated ultimately was defeated by the incumbent by thirty two votes. They apparently paid this Ghost guy forty five thousand dollars. He never campaigned. But it was part of the sham. Well it happens. We got over six thousand votes. Are you saying the elections aren't always on the up and up. apparently not. we're not supposed to question that anymore and get as cancelled member. Go all the way to the supreme court and they'll go. Nah not important. We will look at it. I wonder what's going to happen when they when they try to federalize the elections. What will the supreme court Involved home that more coming they. We'll see for news minutes away. He's talking fifty w. f. t. l. a. jen's back on monday. She started weekend a little early. Deaners over there. I'm bill and this was. I don't know how to describe this. I watched it live but we were talking about the. Us china meetings. I one with the new administration face to face in alaska yesterday. Let me just say this. It did not go well for us. Here was our new secretary of state. Tony blinken opening things up. Tried to be the tough guy right. How do you think this went. We'll also discuss returns with actions. By china including xinjiang hongkong taiwan cyber attacks on the united states economic coercion toward our allies china across the room with a prepared response ready to eat their lunch and they did. Their ambassador finishes up his statement. It goes right to the translator. Who said this comes from com. So let me say here. That in front of the chinese side the united states does not have the qualification to say that it wants to speak to china from a position of strength you. You are qualified. United states of america not qualified to talk to us. Who are you to talk to us from a position of strength that is a little discouraging. No disturbing jaws. They fear they're laughing. They're laughing at the us. It what's happening here fitting the biggest dream it's like they won the world history lottery with the biden administration. Getting in there. Well i mean i if you think about it maybe they look at it as they wanna war right. Did wars see the way. I look at war. Now we're always used to. You know the the battles in the history of war and even the candidate that the the romanticism of war right throughout history here about all these different stories. It's not like that anymore. Even even the invasion in iraq. That's not how wars are fought anymore unless it's some sort of small skirmish and won't be troops on the ground. It's economic yet cyber war propaganda war. Yes sure yeah. They're winning that one we. And that's that's really how at least between you know really developed like like the superpowers china. Us russia you know. Great britain things like that. It's not gonna be a world war three like you thought it was going to be. It's just like you said it's a war of words. It's a war of economies news information. Really i mean. How do you control the narrative and china's been able to do that. They've worked their way through and they feel like they probably wanna war against trump because trump was beating them down the sanger's leslie they said rate some of the leaked audio for early on in the administration we gotta get rid of these sanctions killing us. Effective yeah trump had them handled right away anyway and now that just walking all over his. That's that's really frightening. It really the fact that they feel strong enough emboldened enough to come out in their first meeting and opening statement. Opening statements and other meetings began basically said screw. You you little antifa country. We have the power. Now you listen to us. Who are you're not to. You're not in any position to talk to us from a position of power. That's what china's says to us. Now you wanna make it even worse biden. I mean putin wants to fight. I think joe biden. This all happened in one day yesterday. Now it's coming out as he wants to debate him one on one with no edits. No it has to be absolutely live. I think he wants to wrestle him. It sounds like he wants to take him to the mat like a bear pretty much. We don't have the or a translator but this is the direct quote from vladimir putin. Because you this all started with biden few days ago calling Putina killer unless you remember that. Yes this is putin's response. I'd like to offer biden continue discussions with one condition. We will do it in a live online broadcasts. My gosh and you have see to seventy eight Without any legs in an open direct discussion. I believe this could be interesting for the russian people. The americans and other countries to now. What's interesting to note here. Sound like vince. Gully interesting to note without any legs open direct discussion. They know how they've edited things in the past the listen they'd pay bad news. It is because they they've done all right. You can sam wrong. Or or it's a conspiracy theory but china russia. They know how to handle propaganda. They know what this administration is doing. And they know that sometimes these videos maybe a little bit doctored maybe sure talking abiding in his ear. Okay let's be honest about this so putin wants to say basically saying we know your tricks because we do them too. So let's go ahead and have you know a good old fashioned faceoff steel cage match and see who comes out on top and it's this is within the first two months bill of this administration. Did you ever see anything like this now or years during trump. Can you imagine saying this. It'd be afraid of them. Oh my god. One day china goes. You're no position talk to us like that. Stand down and and goes. I have conditions about an online debate with you. We look weak. this is not. They see says weaken feckless. Because of who's in the lead chair right now it's such a shame that's not good. We'll get an update. You're on vacation. You know before your two day work week. Yeah that's right so you miss this whole story. We'll give you the background. This lady is just as well. I think she's just a a a dummy. Sounds pretty silly from what you're telling me. She sixty five. She's in galveston texas in the very next day after texas. Got rid of its mask requirements The mask mandates. All right which basically just said. We can't criminalize you for it right. All these other places businesses retailers. They all still said we have a mask requirement blah blah blah. That's how it's all worked down. She she got arrested when she went into a bank. And refuse to wear a mask This is how the original stories happen. Now listen to this. Because what's cool at the end was would gets arrested. All the other customers are going. Get out they turn on her over on your stomach your hand on your back relax. You are not really not relaxing. Your she tried to say police harassment right here people and they all went no. It's not oh shut off for trying to cash checks update. She's been arrested again. This time we get an office depot in the same area two times a week. Yeah and apparently the rumor. She's claiming police harassment again. I wonder if it was the same cop he goes in. There is no not again on. I don't wanna deal with again so a bank and then then office depot. Yeah boy she gets out there around. This is gonna be like a new weekly segment. Probably where did the mask renegade get arrested. She's a texas she's the galveston mask renegade. That's what she is. It's crazy though. God right we got more on the more headlines coming up next. Where are we in this entire thing with the vaccines biden. Says we're we're boosting it up. But he also thinks kamala harris has president already. The boy boy is right. We gotta cheesy feel good story for a friday for you but it's actually awesome hundred year old lady at the hugger family for the first time in a year and love it. It's coming up next south florida morning. Show jensen mini vacation. There's diener bill keep it here so much caccia appreciated we can you south florida morning. Show stuck eight fifty w. f. t. l. Jen started the weekend a little early. Deaners over there though. I'm bill cairns more news coming up before you know it Speaking of the weather and all that related stuff to mars first day of spring. You really caught me off guard with that one. I completely forgot. I did too. But it's different for us. It's not like if you watch the cartoons. It's like they look at the calendar spring all of a sudden. Oh right yeah. The flowers sons out. Yeah like like a clock. it doesn't really matter for us but it's a big deal. Even just hitting that day for a lot of the country and they that his activity related getting out and actually doing stuff more daylight. Obviously with you know the time change right you know. The the snow starts off for most people. Sometimes you get those late snowstorms. But that's like the finish line for a lot of people that's what it is to. At least you can see in a light at the end of the tunnel right. And i'm telling you dude grown up north. Jen talks about this all the time to either were months at a time. It's like if you have regular working hours like ninety five stuff. You don't see the sun for months. Gosh it's like gets dark like four. That's true yeah who did not live like that again. It's it's Yeah that's something you really have to get used to be okay. I admire anybody. Who does it because we've all done it. That's why can't keep for moving here. Though i'm telling you a speaking of up north totally related to anything but it just saw. This made me happy because that story yesterday about Some sort of poll and low. Who did it about. The popularity of kumo still like sixty percent of new yorkers would still vote for him can't be true is another one to counteract that. A new poll finds a governor andrew. Cuomo's sexual harassment and nursing home scandals. Glad they put that in there now. Have most new yorkers believing he does not deserve a fourth term in office. Twenty twenty two. Oh gee it took. This long is quinnipiac one which is usually pretty accurate now. They're not saying he should be removed by the way just saying he doesn't deserve a fourth term. I have my doubts these these polls due to they hurt my head yes and they also make me question humanity. I know because if it's they've this is remotely true where people were still okay with them. Being there like what are you doing. You're not paying attention to anything. You have a psychopath as your governor. What is happening. He still now get this. They're saying in this poll. His job approval rating has sunk to its lowest level. Since he first took office right. So you'd think it's like two percent still thirty nine percent of the people think he's doing a good job. Are these people who are they like. Are you so beaten down by corruption and just evil that you're used to it but i don't want anybody else i'm used to come on. Gosh come on new york. i suppose totally inaccurate. Which is that could be right. I mean we know that Help holes sometimes. Put the guy out of there already. Honestly kinda seems like the pressroom and this wasn't even little peter doocy from fox news now. The new instigator in the white house press room is too funny. I think they're all turning on the administration at least jen psaki because they have been forthcoming and it makes it harder for them to write their stories without trump. They're like the dying on the vine is true. Eventually they're going to get angry. They have you know Material getting a little mad and it was a big slip up from jen psaki. Yesterday she said the the c words there have been there. Have there have been expectation set outside of unrelated to any vaccine doses or requests for them that they would be partners in dealing with the crisis on the border. Oh what will. They all looked up from their notepads. Did we hear that right. So they made a repeat it and she got really snippy. When you're talking a moment ago go to mexico Crisis on the border is challenges on the border by the way when she said challenges on the border with the side head nod. Yes yeah we'll shake your head. You challenge me young man good. I don't know who the reporter was. Whoever whoever that young man was who had the courage and the goal to eco. Challenge her on saying that. But did you hear how scared he sounded as he was asking the question. Oh yeah you did. Say that. The crisis on the border Did you mean to say that. And at the end of it he goes. Oh okay okay. All right just backs down. Don't hurt me. Oh my god so they actually so she actually says the truth for once and then just like oh wait. sorry. I forgot about my lai challenges on the board. What's kind of like she wanted to move on like she never said yeah. Challenges go on anything else right. Wow that was a little scared. What a mess. What what a mess is rightly is good. Lord final four is happening. College basketball is actually really. The tournament starts in right now. You happy with his dinner or sports director. I am happy. I'm very happy i'm ecstatic. I'm excited i'm ready to go. I got my munchies. Oh my god. I got my drinks later. Oh god i got my brackenfield ought wanna hear all bought my bracket bill. Don't be that guy because you know every office has them especially this week too and it's not even like it's restricted to people. Working in the office you'll be on the zoom. Call the home office. Hey i'm going to put my bracket up on the home screen. Oh my gosh. Yes but it's it's. It's apparently more popular wherever even expected because close to fifty million people overall. That's not everybody like online gambling. Fifty five o million people involved some way somehow watching involved filling out a bracket or paying a lot of attention this year to march madness tournament. I can't say i'm surprised honestly. I mean granted. That's a huge number. So i mean that's something to really think about when you hear it but i'm not surprised that it is a record because we think about it. It was gone last year. This is one of the best times of year in sports. I mean you got for the populace anyway right it. When it comes to popular sports football season short you know the the the super bowl and then honestly and the masters for the most part of the world cup every four years olympics every couple years but the ncaa tournament falls right into that and people. The casual fan enjoys it. And that doesn't you think it takes it beyond sports and it's just something to look forward to again exactly. It's it's really what it is. Yes it's part of pop culture now kind of crosses all platforms. It's not just something that sports people quote unquote talk about. I think so. So it's it's a lot of fun people like to get into it. You know you you pick the team name or you pick the teams based on like the mascot or how many nuns they have brain for them. But you gotta have not. That's the key now to the tournament. Nonfactor you gotta have a nun. This also tradition. It's friday so we try to give you these feel good story of the day cheesy but they're heart warming in the warm and fuzzy and this is actually i think really really cool and i hope i really do. We hear more a lot more of these kinds of stories. Here soon is a lady in north. Carolina just turned one hundred. Wow feel like Willard scott ain't she beautiful those thing like casey kasem going. A little lady named snuggles just turned one hundred and got to have a party where she hugged. Her family members. Everybody in her immediate family for the first time a year. Why does she got the. She got the jab. She got the vaccine. They all did too and they were. You know mass and all that good stuff it was deemed safe enough to give her that personal contact and this is how exciting because it's been over a year. Since we've been able to cigarette earlier we could see through the through the windows. But that's just not only seen him in ages guy in the middle. I don't know he's like i forgot all about. Wow nick great though you still here. Just hear him. Forgot you there cheese now. That is nice though. That's i hope. There's a lot more of that and i think there will be. I think they will be. We're gonna we're have. Yeah all right. China's eaten our lunch. That's not good though. That's that's not good we'll Explain how that meeting in alaska went yesterday but we'll talk a little bit more about march madness. What's going on there in the weekend. It's coming up next south florida morning. Show james coming back on monday. There's bill keep it here. Type news almost coming up at seven o'clock on the dot care no pressure or anything. Oh well after speaking to steven. I have to go change my bracket but anyway no. It's too late changed now. Don't know your bracket filled out an invisible ink. I had michigan beat. Ankeny i say you believe in your picks care and don't let me influence you because i can be very wrong. So you're the sports director doesn't mean i'm right. What's what's the deepest. Either of you have gone into the tournament with having everything right. I wanted rosenberg's tournament. I be two hundred and twenty one men. You beats it. yeah. I said that this was back when we were in the other building. But it's pretty big. It was big. Beat them all. Wait a minute whereas the other building. Yeah i can't be said happened on forty fifth street. Duke was in there. There's no duke. there's no louisville. There's a lot of big teams. That are a lot of changes. I wonder if that helps. Ratings are not our people tired of seeing that. I never believe when sports fan say. I'm tired of watching them. Baloney nine loved dynasties blue bloods kentucky's not in a shocker. Why they all have covert what's up. Dunk was reasons because it was just hard for them to get the season together but so didn't make it because they sucked volley young players. They didn't have time to gel and they just were not. They weren't good enough. You know it's worse than cova sucking being good at the basketball. Apparently not good for the tournament. It's anthony fauci said that yes at least official from the. Cdc new study just came out. All right well i well. I got more news coming up. That took up my tease time. Unless we do kind of sounds experts. Talk eight fifty the going to be honest with you and i'm fine with it all right. Thanks karen minutes but eleven minutes effect for news news. Talk eight fifty w. f. the owns the south florida morning show today should be back on. Monday can a little long weekend. Well-deserved diener is right over there. I'm bill and yet tournament is big big business. Big money big distraction. Yup gotta if they put it on this week on purpose. Is it always this week with in march two. This was a this is a time change week. This is a saint paddy's day week. This is a working this week. Anyway come on. It's a little late but it usually falls around saint patrick's day in that area. I'm just glad it's happening me. To say was smart putting it all in india they can handle it good and you mentioned about the money to a real quick all because you know these you still have your your people who say it's too dangerous. They shouldn't be doing this. There's they're still out there and for sports gambling no justice just to play the tournament in general. Oh god yeah. So there's those those people are still out there and one of the biggest reasons they're going to play it and you will see a finish to this tournament no matter what because you might have you know some pauses in games. There was some covert scares. Where maybe there's gonna be a forfeit at some point during this tournament and you're going to have you know the loud minorities say see. They shouldn't have played the main reason they're playing. This is because of money. Let's face it course. Billion dollars at the end of this. Of course they are. Tv contracts the sponsors. It's even more. I think it's important for america. I think people want traditions. They wanna have this even if you're not into it a casual. I'm not that into college basketball. I like the tournament and everything. But but i love that it's happening. I love the traditions happening. And it gives me hope. The moore's normal stuff is coming. It's important for the country. Just sports have been that way since the start of this thing. That's why it was such a bummer. When they were gone. Listen world war. Two major league baseball kept on going with replacement replacement players because it was important for the country. Heck you had the eagles in the steelers remember that they became the eagles staples was your fun factor. The day i should've kept it. They didn't have enough players world war. They combined the teams. That's great. yeah. Wow there you go. I don't know so. Yeah it's it's good. I'm happy it's happening. That's good. This is bad on the world stage. We got schooled with with our pants down yesterday in alaska. We were telling you yesterday about this time. And i were about the big meeting. I face to face so to speak the. Us and china with the new administration. How did it go not well new secretary of state lincoln. He tried to be a tough guy in his opening. Statement will also discuss our concerns with actions by china including xinjiang hongkong taiwan cyber attacks on the united states economic coercion toward our allies. And then the boy. If you see the video on this that chase chinese counterpart he's across the room at a table and he kind of he kind of said like all right. Here's what we have to say. And he gave his statement and then the translator obviously gave the response the response. Let's say was a little strong. Here's what they said vodka tongue so let me say here that in front of the chinese side the united states does not have the qualification to say that it wants to speak to china from a position of strength. Ouch we don't want to work with you. You're you're not even qualified to say you're coming at us from a position of strength so basically bow down to us because we now control. He was is really what they're saying. Look by all means if that's your strategy if that is you know your your negotiation strategy to negotiate from a position of power i get it right. That's a good idea. But i mean how are we going to respond to this. We went from being on top of china during the trump presidency huge inroads into now we had them respecting us. Yes and now they look at us and think we're an absolute joke because of this honestly mindless leader. That's that sitting in the white house right now. Sorry to say. I'm sorry that makes you upset. He's sees it as weak as we've looked the weakest right now and just absolutely feckless and if that was pompeo sitting across from him he said if we we can end this right now. We'll leave right after talk to you. That's our power. I mean even the secretary of state blinken just sounds weaken his statement. He's like mobile. Bloom tell you you know. I really do think i think more and more these days that you know the optics matter. He looked week did he. He looked like a policy nerd. He just did. And i think that matters. It does matter because you have to have some type of imposing figure. I mean that ain't him. it's at pompeii. Oh did have pump. Big guy yeah. And even trump trump is a guy. Now i it's just that they wouldn't put up with it and it's now chinese biden had said china's gonna eat our lunch said that on the campaign trail. They kind of are this. Gary scaring big concern. And when you actually sit down meeting and say you're not in a position to talk to us that way knoxville. And don't get me wrong. I'm not rooting against the country. Here and doing like you know the around saying see. We told you that it was going to be worse with when trump was gone. I'm not doing that. Like i want this to work out under biden. It's just. I'm saying it's not. We're right as of now. We were right that it's just horrible with him so hopefully it changes. I hope so too my hope so for sure. I also hope this happens. I don't think they talk about it unless it's going to happen all in on this by the way sitting down with oprah oprah britney spears her cab i love this her camp as a camp or saying she's interested in sitting down with oprah winfrey for a tell all interview. I don't like celebrities. But i love me. Some britney absolutely and it's a fascinating story if you saw. Did you see this netflix documentary about her. And fighting within her family for the money in the conservatorship against your dad. And all this stuff. It's fascinating still. Haven't i've i've meaning so watch that it's on netflix right. Yup i gotta watch it. Britney's thirty nine now. Wow legendary and she wants to tell her story herself doesn't want anybody else in charge of hookah. Blame her and i think i think this would be the format where it would come out. It would be bigger than that royals at stupid royals interview. I think yes you know why because brittany is like american worldy. Yes that is right. We don't we don't have a monarchy but we have celebrities day right. Britney spears is america world he darn it and let's face it twenty million people with tune in for one reason only we want to see if brittany still hot. Oh for sure. And there's nothing wrong with that. And you know what i think she is so i think it's going to happen at some point. They're talking about dates. But i really don't talk camp right. Wouldn't talk about it unless that's in the world it's gonna happen. What is what oprah. Not gonna do that huge. There's a ton of money to be made there all right. We'll find out about that.
