"There's a pretty good track record of some epic ground. How groundhog day fails. yeah Some of the worst moments in history. Not only for the whistle pig itself. But for its handlers. Pretty controversial moments over the years. It was back on february. second twenty fourteen. You remember this. don't you mayor. Bill de blasio. New york flinched as the handler placed. Chuck in his arms. How much would would with chuck chuck chuck chuck would causing the groundhog to fall to the ground now. The groundhog was actually a female stand in for chuck named charlotte and sadly well passed away several days later. Oh yes but circling the wagons. You had the staten island zoo coming out and saying that it appeared unlikely that the groundhogs death was related to the fall. And that's their story and they're sticking to it now unfortunately back in two thousand sixteen. Stonewall jackson was a groundhog never made to a ceremony on he actually passed away. On the eve of the holiday jackson's death resulted in the cancellation of groundhog day. Ceremonies ending a streak of more than twenty years of predictions at the space farms. Zoo m museum in sussex new jersey and then there was chuck tyson on february. Second of two thousand fifteen. You had mayor jonathan freud. His name of wisconsin. Well let's say. He got a little unwanted attention from jimmy. The groundhog as jimmy chuck tyson. The groundhog bit. The mayor's left ear. that left a mark. Yeah apparently The mayor leaned in to hear jimmy's prediction and got a little nibble instead. Now at first the mayor said there would be an early spring that he was mistaken. I hear too well as jimmy took a chunk out of his ear. Jimmy actually as did punxsutawney phil. This morning predicted six more weeks of winter february. Second two thousand nine. Staten island chuck. Well he bit then mayor michael bloomberg the bite happened just before chuck made his prediction as the mayor reached into the groundhogs cottage. The groundhog has palatial digs and tried to coax him out with some of his favorite sa k s.'s. Can't say i can't say the word because well my little Rudy is sleeping until he hears that word and then he would allow can get very demanding. Apparently chuck's handler swertz said about bloombert's struggle with the rodent while they were trying to lure him out with corn but i guess he was having none of it and then there was twenty sixteen. You had ed the groundhog from turtle back zoo in west orange new jersey. Apparently this large and go up the overslept. And he missed the ceremony. So otis otis. The hedgehog had to fill in apparently the warm weather change to ed's hibernation pattern which caused him to oversleep this according to county officials. So happy groundhog day. Twenty twenty one to which you say. How can you tell. Yeah i hear you. Twenty twenty Groundhog day every day seemingly. So again my suggestion to you this morning. Take it or leave it Why not just flip the script a little bit. Maybe do something a little bit different today. Albeit suggestion is yeah. You want to make sure that you do it

"That helped him but he was able because he had a message in story. And a clarity of purpose and benefited from the failures of other candidates. Who were may be better positioned to win you know. He won without a lot of the traditional things we look at so i think that's not a great answer but i think i try to look more than just endorsements money in polling which are like the things you kind of like out of habit. Look to and really look like. Who's saying something clear that has a populist message and who has a personal story because that seems to matter more than ever in politics just quickly you just want to say. I think we just hit on two really important. Sort of cautionary aspects of what is facing us in journalism and also voters in looking back at bill de blasio. One is the vetting of candidates which again is is harder with bigger field but bill de blasio is probably not vetted as well as he could or should have been by by voters in the media. But it's also very hard to vet someone in certain ways for the position of mayor of new york city which there's almost nothing else like But how we assess personality types in managerial types in style of of these things you know the every candidates going to have a bunch of policy position papers out that will appeal to different people. But how do we really assess whether they could run the city. And then you know this idea that you just got it. Sally of people who are really speaking to the electorate and the electorate is really hearing in an interesting way that we might not be able to fully pick up on that might be even more challenging in the zoom era. Sorry we're going to you know. I mean that's i was just gonna add quickly that it's really feel disadvantage as a reporter.

"Deal with the ramifications Be listed on his legacy so he might see that sort of that sort of a win win situation for himself. Msn if also true that the city has shifted and so have democratic cities in politics shifted so much farther left than where it was when the mayor came to office. Then i think you know. Maybe he's the one who's got some catching up to do that. Prime in many ways. So that's interesting. And of course as we talk about what the mayor may or may not try to do and twenty twenty one in what the initial shape of his legacy looks like as he enters his final year. There will be the race to replace him. Bill de blasio of course being term limited in a very crowded field vying to be the next mayor out so much will of course come down to the democratic primary in june That isn't necessarily determinative of the final outcome in the general election but in a very heavily democratic city it makes the winner very likely to be the next mayor so sally. You've been covering the early stages of this mayoral race. I'm closer than anybody Set the stage a little bit for this year. We don't we're we actually don't have time to name every single candidate running but You know generally Early on what's your sense of sort of how. The field is shaping up in what this election seems to be about. So with the big caveat that with ranked choice voting. It's very hard to handicapped this race. voters will be able to rank five candidates as opposed to just picking one Instant runoff it's being challenged but unless those challenges are successful which so far. They don't seem like they will be. It's going to change the election. In a way that i couldn't really predict but it will change a candidate's campaign because you have to get more than just your natural base so with that said. I think the race is really interesting because you know when de blasios came into office in two thousand thirteen. He won because he ran a raised. It was a clear departure from mike. Bloomberg and mike bloomberg had very clear cut identity as a technocrat. A manager somebody who put management of the city over the values that are in line with majority of democratic party and people wanted to chain didn't hate him like he's still cold decent lanny in the general electorate but they wanted a departure into blasios presented the clearest cleanest departure. I don't know. I don't think anyone knows what voters want right now because there are people who feel like de blasios hasn't managed well and they want a manager. Somebody who can just make sure..

"So Charlie Build Blasio that in the news this week with the tweet warning the Jewish community and other communities but especially the Jewish community that They had fair warnings and now they and NYPD is GonNa come and get him summons and arrest them if they continue to have the gatherings higher than recommended the proximate cause of this tweet was a civic civic funeral and Brooklyn. What do you make of it? Are you GonNa? It's an odd tweet. I think it was oddly. Phrased the presumptions odd from what I understand. That funeral was given permission to go ahead. And those that broke. The rules were knowledged and indeed apologize full by its organizes. I am not one who likes to throw words around. Big Anti Semite Racist. Let's people exist. They do it is of course a hideous thing that there are some among us who hate other space on their immutable characteristics. But I don't think biolog- that your average person in America hobbies hatred towards his fellow man and I think build a buzzy does either. I do think that he ought to rethink how he communicates especially given world history in this area and I think that there's a certain double standard here. I did wonder when I saw that. Tweet how long it would have taken had say. Donald Trump tweeted it to see the mushroom clouds on the horizon. We would probably have talked about nothing else for days but that would have been because the press and the Democratic Party would have overreacted. And I don't want to overreact here against Bill de Blasio. What I do want to do is to bury bill de Blasio as an effective public official. He's not one. He's a poor mayor. He's a poor communicator. He's not strong thinker. He hasn't handled this well. And it seems to me that if bill de Blasio the mayor of different city if he were the mayor of say. Houston all boise or Jacksonville. He would be pilloried day in day out and all sorts of conclusions would be drawn about his leadership. He is the worst. Man Yorkers had for a long time he showed signs of being that right from the beginning I think it was in the first few months of his first administration that he royally screwed up the snow plowing in the streets. Much to the Chagrin of New Yorkers. He is not up to this task and I think rather than sharing anything particularly sinister rather than implying. That de Blasio is an anti Semite or a racist or a bigot. Which I don't think he is. I think this shows that he's out of his depth and he doesn't know how to address people in what is a crisis. Unfortunately we have too much of that at all levels at the moment so I think there's something a little odd here that there's almost a hidden mental distinction that people like to Blasi. Oh Meek Me This is. This is my own form of of paranoia but some of the background. An anger is that you know New York City has about one over million Jewish people living in it. This funeral that was broken. Up was on a a more ultra-orthodox group And forgive me if I don't use the correct terminology. At every step along the way and characterizing them but These members of these ultra Orthodox groups especially in Brooklyn have been subject in New York City to a lot of random street violence It'S ACTUALLY NOT RANDOM. It's their targeted by You know often of members of other racial minorities in the city who don't like choose or who don't like the way. Jewish businesses operate in Brooklyn. Or the way you know heavily. Jewish apartment blocks are operated. I don't know but there's been a simmering anger at de Blasio for not calling this out and dealing with it effectively And it's very sensitive. I think the Distinction de Blasio makes with ultra-orthodox Jews. And I think it's one that's that's held in other incidents is that well there are Jews and you know the people that populate even the Dubois Zeo Administration in in the mayoralty that are secular. And then there's this other group that is cordoned off as kind of ultra religious freaks. Whose behavior is in some way unaccountable. Or you know. Somehow those people deserve what they get and So I don't think when he was formulating that tweet he was thinking about you. Know Jews writ large but I think he was thinking in the smaller category of you know people who live differently In New York City live in a way. That's visibly a noticeably different in New York City And that are you know. Kind of a constant source of negotiation with police and with You know various bodies the administration so I think something like was informing this event and But it was an ugly thing to tweet and deserves pretty much all the criticism. He's getting for it It was thoughtless and it's also just disrespectful because this this group did try to organize with police For their funeral and In the police allowed the situation to get out of hand the fact that NYPD doesn't respect bill de Blasio is not new. That's been true since he was elected in fact they actively loathe him and so probably didn't feel like imposing his edicts on Some very well behaved members of the community in general so it was a totally avoidable incident But blasi deserves just about everything. That's happening to him. Charlie Cook exit to you and sheer political terms who has fared worse in the Krona Virus Crisis Bill De Blasio or Donald Trump Belda blasios probably but trump may may pay greater price for it in that trump is running for president in a few months. Bill De Blasio was already done med. I'm I mean the trump because I think he I think trump is rapidly heading towards I think he's almost heading towards lame duck status In that the administration has been slow on so many sectors of this crisis has promised so many things that have just not materialized. I mean remember the promise of testing centers outside of every Walmart and target This was a promise made in the White House lawn and just disappeared as vaporware and it seems like more little crises are going to happen including meat shortages. And I just don't think a president can get reelected when basic necessities are rationed and And there are shortages. So I'M GONNA say trump agree that the trump having a bad and political terms crisis more consequential stakes are higher For him I think de Blasios had worst one. I mean. He's been at. The very epicenter of this was late at every single. Turn and then has also overreacted. Then and absurd ways. I have sympathy shutting down the schools telling people. Subways aren't safe. Those really hard things to do and things that I think anyone is certain level would hesitate to do but he got those calls wrong but trump clearly has been hurt. There is at rally around the flag period where it wasn't a huge rally around the flag but a notable rally round the flag fact whereas approval rating was up. He's giving back those gains and some more Just because the response was late Initially and he's been shooting himself in the foot At press briefings. And it's just a a major red flashing light when you're the president United States during crisis and people think your opponent would be better suited to handle that crisis and especially when you're ponant is Joe Biden Sitting as basement impressing no-one otherwise so let's pause and let me do a quick and our plus plug got. Sign up for our plus. There is metered paywall at National Review Dot Com. It's annoying it's in your face.

So please check it out and our plus. It's been growing by leaps and bounds. You don't WanNa miss out. Go check out. The great deals and sign up. So Michael has been a while since we've talked about Russia gate related things but we're now and in the phase where we're having revelations important revelations about what was going on behind the scenes and we've had several over the last week having to do with. Michael Flynn case has special. A WE saw yesterday recording. Thursday afternoon these notes from an FBI. Agent strategizing About the the Flynn interview. They're going to undertake after his phone. Call with Russian ambassador. Kislyak where he says Goal here you WanNa get the truth slash And mission or do we want to try to get him to lie so we can charge him or get him fired. And there's been indications that that just wasn't a much of a product yet for an investigation here obviously the Logan Act which hasn't been seriously some something like eighteen fifty two completely absurd and it seems. There's a chance that Astonishingly given that. Flynn actually pled guilty to lying to the FBI that his his Plea could be given back to him. And the Justice Department light withdraw this case what he make they should withdraw the case I think the note I think. Some people in our sphere. Maybe over exaggerating the contents of that note. Which was obviously you know. Leaked to in no favourable people in the media in order to prepare us for either a change in flint status or for some kind of pardon Which by the way I think he deserves. I mean I'm not the biggest. Flynn Fan on Earth. But the note in question gives us a glimpse into precisely what Charlie Cook Has Been Warning about since the beginning of this investigation that there's a sense in which Federal Investigations are opened up and the whole point becomes not the substance of an investigation but attempts to get the subjects of them to trip up in an interview and then charge them with obstruction or perjury at some point And that this is not just a waste but this is unjust and You know we're seeing it that note reflects I don't think it reflects the author of the notes intention to do these things but in it certainly reflects his suspicion that other colleagues do intend something like this and he's raising question to we you know. What is the goal here and The the the goal of an investigation should be to get to the truth and to punish a wrongdoer for doing wrong not for eating its own tail So yeah I mean I look forward to more more leaks like this coming out. I mean I even thought that one previously showing that intelligence sources knew that the steele dossier contain Russian. Disinformation I thought that was also telling it was exactly what I expected to happen But I'm glad that the truth is getting out that you know. This country was a portion of it was sentenced these paroxysms of paranoia that a foreign government had somehow compromise the president and other members of his administration. And now we're finding out that you know. This case was mostly. People projecting their own shadows and suspicions onto the wall. And and that was just about it. Kelly Cook I think if the charitable interpretation of that note is correct new. May well be then. It's a disgrace. Interpretation of that note is correct. Then it's sufficient cause for the abolition of the FBI and possibly for a revelation. I do not..

"Answer bad enough. That people get food delivered from a strip club. Because here's something I never thought I'd here. Let's be safe tonight. An order in shrimp from the titty bar new rule if we still have to visit grandma what we're not allowed to touch her or even go inside. She has to put her tits on the glass blowing at home now but give it another month. Nurul people must stop pretending sphynx cats cute. It looked like golly made out of a ball sack. I don't know whether I'm supposed to pet it or ask you to tell me a riddle. All I know is keep that fucking thing away from me when giving the line. Now that Bernie's dropped out and the Hashtag Never Biden. Never trump is trending on twitter. Someone must invent a way for me to bitch slap people. Virtually I would do it in person but I can't leave the house and finally new rule. You can't yell at someone for breaking a rule you just made up scientists yes. Scientists are generally pretty liberal have been naming diseases after the places. They came from for a very long time. Zeka is from the Zeke. Afforest a bola from the Abol River Hanta virus the Han River there's the West Nile virus and Guinea Worm and Rocky Mountain spotted fever and of course the Spanish flu murders stands for Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome. It's plastered all over airports and no one blogs about it. So why should China get a pass? Congressman Ted Lieu tweeted. The virus is not constrained by country or race. Be just as stupid to call it. The Milan virus. No that would be way stupid because it didn't come from a long and if it did I guarantee we'd be calling at the Milan virus. Jesus fucking Christ. Can't we have a pandemic without getting offended when they named lime disease after a town in Connecticut the locals didn't get all ticked off a take ticked off seriously? It scares me that there are people out there who would rather die from the virus. Call it by the wrong name. This isn't about vilifying culture this about facts. It's about life and death. We're barely four months into this. Pandemic and the wet markets in China. The ones where exotic animals are sold and consumed are already starting to reopen the PC. Police say it's racist to attack any cultural practice that's different than our own. I say liberalism lost. Its way when it started thinking like that and pretended that forcing a woman to wear. This was just a different way. Instead of an abhorrence. Human rights violation. It's not racist to point out that eating bats is bat shit crazy in two thousand and seven. Researchers at the University of Hong Kong wrote the presence of large reservoir or SAR absorbs C. O. V. Like viruses in Horseshoe bats together with the culture of eating exotic animals in southern. China is a time bomb. Doctor says we should force a global closure of the wet markets because the current crisis is a quote direct result of them on Monday the UN's acting head of bio-diversity said the same thing so when someone says what if people here Chinese virus and blame China the answer is we should blame. China Chinese Americans. But we can't stop telling the truth because racist. Get the wrong idea. They're always going to be idiots out there who want to indulge their prejudices but this is an emergency. Don't we have bigger tainted fish to FRY? She says if the sun was exploding twitter would pile on the first guy who called it a dwarf star. Sorry Americans were going to have to ask you to keep to ideas in your head at the same time. This has nothing to do with Asian Americans and it has everything to do with China. We can't afford the luxury anymore of non judging this towards a country with habits that kill millions of people everywhere. Because this isn't the first time. Sars came from China and the bird flu and the Hong Kong flu the Asian flu virus come from China like shortstops come from the Dominican Republic. If they were selling nuclear suitcases at these wet markets would we be so non-judgmental and isn't this pretty close to what they are selling and the next one could be even worse if the Chinese military had purposefully infected this country with corona as a bioweapon. We'd be at war with them we're always griping about how China manipulates their currency. Well I'm no monetary expert. I think you would agree. This one hurt our economy a little more than the currency manipulation and China can do this. China ones built a fifty seven story skyscraper in Nineteen Days. There's been a pothole my street for nineteen years. They're not like us. They can actually get shit done. This dictatorship for decades enforced a one child per family policy under penalty of forced sterilization. But you can't close down the farmer's market from Hell. They need to use that iron fist. And pound it down like the whole world depends on it because it kind of does and I hope that if someone told Americans that eating hot pockets could cause a worldwide pandemic that we would have the good sense to stop doing it. Although I wouldn't bet on it. Okay that's our show. You were a great audience. I want to thank my guest. Bill de Blasio Al Gore in Bremmer and Nikki. Glaser and we will be back next week from my backyard. Thank you folks Joel.

"It's letting up and finally we want to give good wishes to Boris. Johnson is one of the people who we know has the current virus but he's out of the EC ICU. And he's doing better there in Great Britain but until he returns to work right. Britain is without a leader. Join the club all right. We got a great show. We have Mayor Bill De Blasio Al Gore in Bremmer and Nikki Glaser. That's pretty fucking good. My backyard and right now. I spoke one on one yesterday. Just let's go to the first interview. Thank you for coming well. My first guest is the mayor of New York City. When of course the hardest hit in this crisis if you want to help new NYC dot gov slash help now is where viewers can do that to help the people in New York. Please welcome the honorable bill de Blasio. Great to see you Mr Mayor. I know you are a busy like you never have been before so I'll get right to it Is it fair to say that things are looking a bit up in that hospitalizations are declining? And maybe leveling off very soon. I'd be a little more cautious than that. Bill I'd say hospitalizations were growing intensely. They're growing less. The use of ventilators was getting sky-high growth each day it's actually slowed but we're still seeing more cases each day of course than the day before. So what is a positive sign really important? Bill is that New Yorkers you know New Yorkers real well they would have probably been the the least likely to socially distance of any people in the United States of America. But what we've seen is amazing compliance amazing Support for this idea because it is life saving so folks in the city even though it's been really tough it's been emotionally tough. It's been logistically tough to figure out how to socially distance in the most crowded place in the country but people are doing it. They're doing it very well. They're sheltering place they're really staying inside to a remarkable degree the NYPD has been out to do enforcement but they really haven't had to do a lot of tough enforcement. They've sometimes had to warn people. Remind them but people are actually following. The rules are the real heroes. I mean the healthcare workers heroes the first responders heroes but there's also a truth that the people in New York City are heroes in this crisis. Because we ask them to do something almost unimaginable. You know eight point. Six million people kind of in unison. Pull off this shelter in place and social distancing to remarkable degree. They're doing it. And that's why our healthcare leadership believes that. Somebody's numbers are slowing down now. We found out this week that there was a tremendous racial disparity in the way the virus affects people. Why in your is that that it Adversely affects minorities. So we saw a real disparity here and the disparity and other cities in the country has been in other states has been even worse and I think it comes back to painful truth about America that healthcare in America for generations has been based on. How much money you make. And let's face it for most people of color they'd been on the short end of the economic stick and then add to it the reality of immigration and what's happened to immigrants in recent years in this country and I think this is an area where the way immigrants have been under attack has really been a piece of this unfortunate painful reality because bill. A lot of immigrants started staying away from healthcare staying away from hospital. Stay away from all sorts of places. They could go for help because they feared particularly undocumented. Folks feared exposure feared the possibility of being deported. So what we're seeing is hitting Latino community hardest hitting the black community hard I think that is that immigration pieces a piece of it. I think the the underlying core piece is decades generations of people not getting enough healthcare. Folks will conditions like asthma. If you're in a.

I mean you look it became clear and clear to me. Even though we've been able make big changes in new york that we can't make the changes we need for people all over this country without without very very different approach in washington. America is not working for working people. That's just the bottom line. The the government at this point is captive to the one percent can't and to change it is not just a matter of having good ideas. Good ideas are crucial. Good policy positions are crucial but understanding how to actually actually make big changes and fight the opposition that comes with that. That's why i've been doing for six years in what i think we would. All agree is one of the toughest environments armaments in the country and it works by the approach. I've taken is progressive. Bold sharp not half-measures. I said we're gonna pre-k for all our kids we did that. I said we were going to give people paid sick leave. Who didn't have it we did. I said that folks don't have health. Insurance should have a guarantee of healthcare. We're doing that right now. In new york doesn't have health insurance will have access to a primary care doctor at our public hospitals and clinics..

Did you end you completely because i thought some people were critical at the this is the windows but theory that <hes> you know if you check on things as little as a broken window or stop and frisk. It'll get rid of a <hes> even more serious crime but do you feel that <hes> you have stopped that enough. <hes> some of your critics say no stop and frisk frisk as a strategy we there's very few stops now and they're only done when there's a specific rash now which is the only appropriate use of stop and frisk. It's a night and day. It's over ninety percent reduction and it has fundamentally changed reality the relationship between police and community. I wanna there was another moment and it involved involved police as well of a very powerful emotional moment in the c._n._n. Townhall when you were asked about the recent spike in police suicides in new york it's happening in other cities too is terrible and <hes> an officer asked. How can you improve mental health for the military when it's so obviously bad among the police police force you add some answers for that and i i want to hear from you but you also explain why this is something that hits home to you that your own father <hes> world world war two veteran so is mine killed himself took his life when you were just eighteen. This is not something you are unaware of no no and and robin so you probably know from your own experience. I mean the the folks come back from war. Come back carrying a plot the my dad's case it was p._t._s._d. He'd been one of the worst battles in history on okinawa and lost half a leg into a grenade and the emotional toll. I saw it as a young child. It got worse each year. He would push away help and then he was gone and he he might a lived if he could just accept the help and we've got today in america were losing folks folks who have served us because they still feel like there's something there's some shame in asking for help. We all have to fix that. The government has to fix it with making mental health care the justice accessible as physical health care but we all have to speak up and say there's a mental health challenge. There is nothing wrong with it. Just come forward and let's get the help people indeed it's their mayor de blasio as i watched you speak so passionately about this <hes> and powerfully in the c._n._n. Townhall aw i found myself thinking what happened here because as you will know <hes> you know you had an upset win in new york your family mixed race ace was there was a feeling especially in the obama era of forward movement and yet it feels feels like some air one out of that tire and then we came across the new york times article hell bill de blasio went from progressive hope to punching bag and it you talked about how you didn't seem to come across new yorkers as liking the city and that there was some sort of momentum that was lost. What do you think what happened to that energy well. I i'm gonna just tell you a different story. I think there's a difference between sort of the the public discourse and then what people are actually living. I have young people come up to me all the time <hes> young men of color and say thank thank you. I'm not stopped all the time by police..

Economists say some economists say there's a one in three chance that recession will happen in the next year before for the election suppose you become a recession era president. Give me your top priorities your one or two plans for digging the economy out <hes> let's borrow from franklin delano roosevelt who was a depression era president a huge national infrastructure plan repeal the trump tax cut for the wealthy the inc's take those resources and apply them to a massive infrastructure plan including <hes> the green new deal and focus on and rebuilding the american economy putting people to work putting ourselves on a sustainable economic path right now this country between the the infrastructure problems and the lack of resiliency policy policy and no real policy to address climate change the those are the long-term deep deep threats to our economy. If we actually start addressing that stuff it would create a huge number of jobs was reinvigorate our economy and prepares for the future last question. This may sound like kind of a weird question but do you really want to leave new york. You're the mayor of new york man you. I really want to come to the swamp and half the work. Drain it well. The swamp needs some draining joshua and look. I had to take over new york city and change a lot of things very very quickly on really tough issues take on a lot opposition from very powerful interests to do it and that's the kind of experience that's actually literally what we need right right now to fix washington and make this a nation that actually focuses on working people again so yeah. I wanna do that and i think look. This is called the second toughest this job in america historically having done this. I feel ready to do what i need to do to change this country for new yorkers for everyone and make it a place that puts working people. I am pleased again to your listeners to build blasi.

"Listen and subscribe now. This is one a. Hey i'm joshua johnson. We're speaking to mayor bill de blasio of new york about his run for president. I should note that a number of our listeners have asked us questions about the nature of your your campaign and its viability. We know that the standard for making the debate september is going to be tougher for making the debates last month. There has been a quinnipiac poll. All that showed that i believe it was one out of five new yorkers support your run for president and we got a lot of questions about just the viability of your campaign in this gigantic field that could change inge by the time we're off the air wicked cellist tweeted what is he thinks he's adding to the conversation. I see candidates who have the attention to win. I see candidates who have talking talking points. They want heard on a national stage and then i see a bunch of people who are neither what is he accomplishing here well first of all joshua. I'm someone someone who has been an underdog in every race. I've been in including the one from new york city so i think people should never assume six months before anyone votes you literally the first vote tonight where almost six months away no-show sooner this is going. We're in a time where everything's unpredictable. Everything is changing in the politics. This country and things can change very rapidly second second. I'm someone who you talk about the response in new yorkers while they elected me with seventy three percent of the vote and then a year and a half. They reelected me with sixty seven percent of the vote. That's what ultimately matters matters when you're judged by the voters and what am i contributing look i. I'm talking about the direction that our country and our party needs to go and when i say working people first in both debate date i pushed very hard for a pro working person vision troll labor position that honestly a lot of the candidates were not focused on and i pushed in my <hes> fellow democrats to recognize for example democrats cannot be party to a new nafta treaty and a lot of them actually are thinking of doing that and that's going to totally the anger and undermine so many working people particularly in the industrial midwest that can't happen. Democrats need to stand up for labor unions. They have not been doing it. Sufficiently democrats doc rats have to be really clear that private health insurance is not something to celebrate. It's something we need to move past ultimately with universal health care you know what there are relatively few voices on these stages that are giving a clear sharp progressive message about working people and i'm going to ask your listeners to help me keep doing that because you're right about the debate standards anyone who believes that what i'm saying is important to this discourse. Please go to build a blasios dot com donate at least one dollar the way you get into these debates rates going forward is through those grassroots donations and joshua the qualifications for september and then october are exactly the same so i'm gonna keep working hard to qualify for both those debates because i really do think i'm presenting a vision that we need in this part in this country and it's based on actually doing the work and achieving bring it and i also believe that nothing you know the the phrase i like is the future is unwritten which i will credit to joe drummer. No one knows where this election is is going and the things i'm talking about actually resonate deeply with working people all over this country and is worth noting that the just for everyone's reference the standard for the debates next month is the candidates must have have one hundred thirty thousand individual donors and hit at least two percent support in four different polls also worth noting that around this point in the tw- twenty sixteen sixteen election cycle the very top front runner for the republican nomination was jeb bush and the bottom candidate was donald trump before we go a few more questions. <hes> let me ask you just a quick foreign policy question..

The city has about a half half million employees more than eight million residents and a budget of nearly ninety three billion dollars running at teaches you a lot about leading a major enterprise is quite different than another new york institution. The trump organization mayor bill de blasio hopes to make the case that he is the right executive to replace donald donald trump in the white house. How is he making that case to democratic voters and what do you want to know mayor. Bill de blasio joins us from n._p._r. New york mr mayor welcome lcm to one a. Thanks very much josh. Let's start with the same question we begin with for all of our candidates. Why should the american people elect you. President joshua think you gave the context in the beginning. Look i run the nation's largest city. I have the largest school system in the country. The largest police force in the country and my job every day is to help point six million people the most diverse place on earth to make sure that people get along and coexist positively way to have a strong social fabric look. What does america need right now. We need a government that will actually try to create a more positive inclusive society see. That's what i've been doing. In new york. We need a government that will be on the side of working people and it hasn't been for a long time too often. What's been obvious is the federal government is on the aside of the one percent and here new york. We've done the exact opposite. We've focused on addressing inequality. We focused on putting money back in the hands of working working people with things like pre k. for every child for.

So how many how many people are running for president now? Is he twenty four or twenty three or twenty four who can keep track Henry Gruber rights for slate, but more importantly, he's a New Yorker? That's why I dragged him into the studio to try to make the best argument for why. Our mayor Bill de Blasio should be running for president. It's like it's like one of those premium cable channels packages where you're, you're never going to watch those other things they've been throwing in there and you're like, oh, channel forty four that a Blasio channel did I, I watching this last night when I came home from the party, okay, here's my best argument? He's tall like, that's it. He's like, really tall. He will tower over anyone in a debate pretty much in less James Komi runs. And like the tallest guy usually wins. Right. Donald Trump was probably the tallest guy running for president twenty sixteen. Right. That's what I'm saying. The data supports your hypothesis. Bill Blasios was a dark horse candidate when you ran for mayor back in twenty thirteen his platform was uncompromisingly liberal, and his family helped him craft his image, his wife and kids are black. And they argued to Blasios serious about reining in police abuse after a couple of other top tier candidates, flamed out. He won. And yeah. Bill de Blasio is really tall. Like six foot five. It's part of what can make him seem a little goofy. Okay. But, but seriously, we have to put our we have to lay our cards on the table, which is that we're New Yorkers. And so, we're biased. Because we've had to deal with the mayor's you know, foibles foibles, small time scandals like, you know, killing the groundhog and showing up, late everywhere and driving the giant about the ground dog. He literally picked up a groundhog on groundhog's day in Staten Island dropped it, and it died. It died, and there was a bit of a cover up which which, which not he had nothing to do with the cover up, but there was nevertheless, a cover up. What I'm saying is, these are not issues. And in fact, many, many New York City issues on which we find a Blasios lacking or not issues that will be germane to voters in Iowa or New Hampshire or voters anywhere who are thinking about the presidential race. So to be serious for a moment. The argument to Blasios for president, I think there are many more ridiculous. Small-time podunk candidates with fewer ideas and less experience were running for president right now to Blasios has as many constituents as Corey Booker does a Senator or Jay Inslee does governor and he's always seemed more interested in these big picture social contract ideas, education wages, public health. Henry sounds almost wistful when he talks about Bill de Blasio doesn't he it almost feels like mayor was just the wrong job for him from the start. I mean de Blasios hometown papers each and every one of them came very close. If not openly mocked him, right? I feel like the barrage of criticism is almost turning me into a de Blasio. Stan, I'm defending him a little bit. Today on the show.

"He says that the reason Amazon left is because people are angry angry corporations. Now, if you're able to bless you. And you just suggested that you made a great deal with the corporation when you think it's your job to quell, the anger when you think it's your job to go back to your folks and say, listen, I know you don't like the Jeff Bezos has rich, but he's coming here to provide jobs. That's why we just made a deal with him. Don't you have to sell the deal a Bill de Blasio won't sell the deal because in the end his beholden to his radical base is Amazon's capricious decision to take its ball and go home in the face of protests won't diminish that anger the city and state were holding up our, Ed and more importantly, a sizable majority of New Yorkers were on board support for the new headquarters was strongest in communities of color, and among working people who too often haven't gotten the economic opportunity. They deserved a project that could have opened a path to the middle class for thousands of families was scuttled by a few very powerful people sitting in a boardroom in Seattle. Or alternatively by the people who kept changing the deal over and over and over again, I love this part Bill. The Blasios has in the end Amazon seems unwilling to bend or even to talk in earnest with the community about ways to shape their project because they already made the deal. I mean, how many times do have to say this once you, and I cut a deal, and we have a contract you don't get to come back. The next day and say, I've changed the you're not done theater. I'm not Landau calories. And that's not how this works. They didn't want to be in a city where they had to engage critics at all. And it's a pattern when Seattle city council passed a tax on big employers to fund the battle against homelessness the company threatened to stop major expansion plans. Putting seven thousand jobs at risk the tax was rescinded right because they didn't wanna pay a giant tax this dumb Seattle policy. How do you think that New York was even up for the job at Seattle weren't filled with idiotic garbage city council, and they've actual socialist on the city council and Seattle Seattle weren't filled with awful corporate awful, governance by the government. You think you think Amazon with think of leaving Seattle of Seattle. Oh, we're well-governed. Do you think that would happen? Of course, not. Ability Blasios have said he says economic power the kind that allows you to dangle fifty thousand jobs and billions in revenue over every metropolitan area in the country is being steadily concentrated into fewer and fewer hands. I'm pretty sure that economic power is concentrated in the hands of the governments that are alienating corporations day by day. Bill de Blasio concludes. He says as the mayor of the nation's largest city a place. That's both the progressive beacon and the very symbol of capitalism. I share frustration about corporate America. So many of my fellow mayors across the country. We know the game is rigged. Really, you do you commie wants to centralize power. But we still find ourselves fighting one another. In the race to secure opportunity for our residents as corporations force us into all against all competitions. The competition is to have lower your tax rates. It's not difficult. They're not asking you to change. How you govern? They're not asking you to remove regulations. They're simply saying we're not coming over to your house unless you give us a dinner that is worthy of our time. That's it. That's hold freedom. De Blasio says Amazon's path in New York would have been far smoother had it recognized residents fear of economic insecurity and displacement and spoken directly. You know what? Amazon is not a group of elected leaders. You know, what Bill goes into elected leader? If one group is going to be responsive to the public. Wouldn't it be built a Blasios? Why is it Amazon's job to be responsive? This is my problem with Occupy Wall street, Occupy Wall street kept saying power back to the people. And then they went and they protested Wall Street. Members of Wall Street are not elected the member of Wall Street are hired businesses are not amok Rossini's. If you really have a problem with crony capitalism, if you really have a problem with corruption if you really have a problem with corrupt dealmaking, maybe ought to go protest in Washington DC or build a Blasios house or ails. He's headquarters. Maybe that's where you ought to start your stupid campaign. No wonder politicians are blaming corporations that allows them to escape their.
