Newsom Recall Faces Bureaucratic Hurdles

"Fighting back against an effort to have him recalled from office. His opponents claim to have enough signatures on a petition to get that recall effort on a ballot seems keen brought its first aggressive response to the recall effort against him, including text messages, emails and a new ad who's behind the partisan recall of Governor Gavin Newsom. It's Newsome versus the Republicans in an online ad that debuted Monday, paid for by the California Democratic Party. Which has contributed $250,000 to support him staying in office. The governor himself tweeted, he's ready to fight back. I think it's too late. It tells you how nervous they are about him not making it. John Dennis, San Francisco's Republican Party chair who has been leading local efforts to gather signatures for the recall, says this isn't about partisanship and a growing number of signatures is coming from outside the Republican Party. That's a magus reporting the organizer's have until tomorrow to submit their petition against Newsome. Nyssa,

"Done it, and I've seen it both in the papers and in the media. On television. It's been analyzed, and people thought that what I said was totally appropriate Johnson's he believes in respecting America's history and never once any violence. He also says the push to impeach him a second time is a witch hunt that is causing anger division and pain. College in Orange has refused to fire a professor who spoke at President Trump's Rally in D. C right before the capital was breached. Faculty and students at Chapman University claimed Professor John Eastman use conspiracy theory election fraud claims to incite an angry crowd, which led to the violence, Eastman says this is just another attempt to shut down free speech and any questions about the election preposterous to think that those speeches is what instigated what occurred down at the Capitol, a mile and a half away and that began occurring even before the president. Speech was concluded. Eastman did say people who broke the law should be punished. Chapman University says the professor can't be fired unless found guilty of a felony or disbarred in Orange County, Corbin Carson camp I need. State lawmakers have called for domestic terrorism teams to be created in case of an attack similar to the breach of the Capitol Senator Tom Umberg, who represents part of Orange County, says the law enforcement response in D. C was an utter failure if our enemies Had announced when they were going to attack how they were gonna attack who was going to attack and we simply didn't take adequate precautions, then shame on us. I'm Burke says new legislation would require the state to create units focused on domestic terrorism. The teams would gather and share info on extremist groups such as the Proud Boys and the California Democratic Party is hit back at the recall effort of Governor Newsome by trying to tie it to the insurrection of the capital. Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia says the recall is an attempted coup. Of the state government. In fact, there are folks as we all know that both have supported what is happening in D. C and the work that is happening here in our own state. The party cannot provide direct evidence showing a link between the people who organized the capital insurrection to the recall effort. The recall is a legal mechanism for the people of California to remove an elected leader through a direct vote. Let's go back to that crash.

Trump hosts heated White House vaping debate

"On Wednesday ten candidates faced off in Atlanta for a democratic presidential debate no one candidate broke out of the pack reflecting his surge in the polls people to judge came under fire for his political and experience while calmly Heris tried to regain momentum meanwhile on Capitol Hill house Democrats heard from nine witnesses this week and they're impeachment investigation of president trump ambassador Gordon Tomlin and former White House adviser Fiona hill were among those who testified someone said there was in fact a quid pro quo for the release of military aid to Ukraine while Fiona hell characterize the pressure campaign as a quote domestic political errands with us now is Joe carefully senior political writer for the San Francisco Chronicle and founder and president of she the people Amy Allison thanks for being with us Joe let's start with you much has been made of south bend Indiana mayor Pete booted Chad and his recent rise in the polls particularly in Iowa and New Hampshire what was his goal on Wednesday night and do you think he achieved it was gold what was it for in it not to be a a peek down like everybody just the young people who just because he's the the poll leader he's got bigger problems he is the head in that state that's ninety percent white which is you know that's that's nice but when it comes to California the stats here say that you know half of Latinos don't even know who he is so he's got some real problems and when he goes to South Carolina and he's been a long time there no black folks there are not into his campaign at all it is it's really amazing about people the church is that there is no path to victory in the primary without winning significant black support to go around black women he's as close to zero as they come and so I thought last night or late this week was his opportunity to make his case an authentic way to really appeal to black voters particular black women who are the power house Democratic Party voters and he was challenged on his racial justice record in south bend and I feel like he fell flat and so he didn't gain momentum there and therefore I I think as it relates to black voters would you put a judge did not to gain and he says I I asked in this of the California Democratic Party convention were at those at last week about this and he said no I'm I'm looking for to making out reaches into the communities and then Latinos and blacks but he didn't show up to the to the like the to the African American caucus of the California Democratic Party convention so you know there's a gap right now between the rhetoric and the reality for him come here she called him out on that on the stage in Amy you were actually at the debate I was right there and I what was the mood like there it's interesting because of the tight it's Tyler Perry studios it said Lana this is a state that was electrified and literally transformed by the campaign is Stacey Abrams who did that the pre show rally you don't it was the moment where I was sitting among people it was very clear when we heard from the mayor of Atlanta is Stacey Abrams a congressman Lewis as well as Tom for as the Georgia is the middle of the middle of the battleground states there one point four points from being a blue state and they recognize that not only do they have to deal with voter suppression and we didn't hear enough about that on stage about the reality voter suppression in a state like Georgia but they they need to invest now in order to elevate turn out even more than we saw record numbers for twenty eighteen so there was a sense of people in the audience they're really looking for signals from the the candidates who was who is able to speak the language of a multiracial coalition they can be a man or woman of any race but are they going to appeal to people like in Georgia and some did did a very good job on that and others fell on their face and so that was a good measure of who's going to be positioned to reassemble the Obama coalition into twenty twenty one of the most striking things for me in this debate was that this was the first debate were all for moderators were women Amy and you can answer this also if you'd like to do you think that that that affected the tenor of the debate and what was talked about I actually thought it was good I I in the in the sense that child care was brought up that's a universal fit you know our concern of parents in terms of being a burden and there's not a lot really but national solution to this so we have we're able to really hear from the candidates much more deeply around an issue that affects a lot of us and I think having women on the stage did make a difference in that way I think the issue of abortion in in choice was addressed more than before but again there are there were many many more issues or round they talked about workplace harassment in the need to movement and right that was really funny talk about housing to which hasn't gotten a lot of play so far too which is which is another issue that we yeah we have but for five debates since the first time I've really have discussion about housing is interesting because if you look at women in particular women of color are going to be the that the swing vote in these battleground states for the white and battle the White House they're also going to be the vote that ultimately decides who is a standard bearer for the Democratic Party these issues matter and she the people just worked with us center for American progress on a report that basically said look if you talk issues with the good witch and issues that speak to the base like some of the issues were talking about those are things that excite people and get them to the polls this is this is what needs to happen more and more these debates are coming up well California senator Kamel Harris she came out swinging at this debate she's trying to revitalize her campaign and there was one particularly testy exchange between her and congressman Tulsi Gabbard let's listen to that it's unfortunate that we have someone on the stage who is attempting to be the democratic nominee for president United States during the Obama administration spent four years full time on foxnews criticizing president Obama

"Brand rusty Hicks was elected the new chair of the California Democratic party, the L, A labor leader and navy veteran will succeed, Eric Bouwman Bouwman resigned in November, after he was accused of sexually harassing his staffers Hicks. His election is a big win for the party establishment and they hope he will be able to unite this scandal-plagued party ahead of the twenty twenty elections, and rusty Hicks joins me. Now, welcome. It's good to be here. Thank you for having me. Well, it's great to have you. How divided is your party? There was a fight for the election, and, but you won your main opposition Kimberly, Ellison, she wanted to bring in more diverse younger faces to the party. Is that a serious divide? The campaign is over. We have the opportunity to move forward and unite party. You know, I think that the passion and the energy that was brought to that campaign is important for our party. And now we've got a lot of work to do with the opportunity to death. What is that work? Well, certainly, you know, first and foremost is preparing to remove Donald Trump from the White House. In twenty twenty we certainly have some work to do in twenty nineteen to get our party in a position to put our best foot forward for that campaign. Not the least of which is actually addressing the reason why we had a chairs race to begin with. I think that's the number one issue that we have to face and address and ensure never happens again. You mean the sexual harassment allegations? Yeah. Absolutely. Okay. Absolutely. So there are lawsuits regarding that is that going to take up a fair amount of your time, addressing that well I think I we have to certainly squarely and directly ensure that we address the pain and suffering that victims have experienced but also I think it's important to put in place policies and systems that ensure. That it doesn't happen again that anyone and everyone who engages with the California, Democratic party of feels safe and is safe. And I started some two months ago developing zero tolerance policy for the party in unprepared to implement that new policy within within thirty days, I want to get back to this division during this race for party chair, one of the delegates, who supported Kimberly LS said, if I as a young black woman in this party can't see myself in leadership, and what's the point? And then she pointed out that the Republican party, the California Republican party recently elected, a Latina Toledo. It's party. Do you see that at all as a problem that in this majority minority state white man is leading the Democratic Party will, I talked about actually building a Democratic Party that members of the party help to read my leadership style has never been about one individual at the top and has been about a collective power of all of us in there. Four, I called for democratization of the way in which we select committees, the expansion of the leadership structure at the top statewide levels of our party. And for I think through my work in the labor movement in Los Angeles. And what I hope to do with this party. I hope that every part of our party little see backgrounds and demographics and geographies and ideas that reflect, what is the primary function of the Democratic Party here in California. Is it mainly to raise money for candidates? So I, I believe the role of the party is to engage in our nine billion Democrats to bring the platform of the party to life that actually improves the lives of forty million Californians. The vast majority of Californians are looking for a job that they can rely on. On you want a good education for their kids wanna home if they can actually afford. They wanna healthcare when they're sick. They want clean air clean water, and it's our parties obligation to prioritize and lead on and speak to those important issues to be the core function, the primary role of the party. Well, speaking of one of those issues that you outlined home affordability, there was a, you know, doubt are aware, a major study on homelessness, that came out yesterday that show double digit gains here in Los Angeles. We're in a democratic state you have we have a democratic governor. There's a super majority in the legislature of Democrats, and yet it appears that state government is failing to properly address the housing crisis. There just aren't enough homes at affordable prices for people, which is one of the major reasons for this homelessness epidemic. So why hasn't been able? To really put forth, aggressive measures to solve this problem. Well, I would say it's. Homelessness challenge that our state faces in the housing crisis that we face it are certainly linked. They also think we have a challenge of good quality jobs, and that is linked to really both of those important issues in having been in gauged in both the jobs issues and the housing issues and homelessness issues here in Los Angeles. I can tell you that there is no one-size-fits-all solution. There is no magic one to address these issues. I mean at the end of the day, it's about ensuring this folks have the job that they can provide for themselves, and their families on unemployment. I'm sorry to interrupt. Unemployment is pretty low people do have jobs, but they can't afford to live here. I. I. Just outrageously expensive from us people, and I agree in many ways, the challenges that there simply isn't enough construction, being done, and what is the role of the legislature to change that will, I think it's to ensure that they bring all the parties to the table, keep them at the table until the deal is done that ensures that we are constructing housing at scale and ensuring that those that construct that housing can actually afford to live in what they build and we are preserving and protecting our environment. So I think the, you know, the measures that legislatures put forward prioritizing building density around transit, hubs, well, but that was killed. That's not going to be voted on this year. It has there wasn't enough political will to get that even voted on. So when you have a proposal that can't even be voted on. How do you get anything done? But I do think it speaks to the challenge of this issue. Do you believe in publicly financed elections? I believe that we should ensure that every candidate has a real opportunity to, to have their voice hurt to make their case. And I think to the to the extent that we can move closer to publicly financed, elections all the better. What would then tell would that be would that entail? Limiting corporate donors. There's a variety of different options and in ways about going into a public financing. I think the ultimate goal is to ensure that grassroots candidates have the opportunity to make their case to voters to, to ensure that we get the best ideas in the best candidates elected to public office.

Democrats are viewing the current lame duck session of the Republican congress in Washington DC as potentially dangerous with President Trump threatening to shut down the government if he doesn't get some money for his border wall.

"This is fresh air. I'm Terry gross in this year's midterm elections. Democratic house leader Nancy Pelosi was the favourite target of Republicans when analysis found her name was invoked in attack ads that aired more than one hundred and thirty five thousand times Democrats won control of the house in spite of that. And now Pelosi is seeking to become speaker. Again, a post she held from two thousand six to two thousand ten but she's facing resistance within her own party from moderates who feel she's becoming a liability in swing districts, and from progressives who want leaders who will aggressively pursue their policy goals. Our guest journalist, Robert crapper says Pelosi has shown she has the political skills policy grasp and work ethic needed to win the support of and to manage the democratic congressional caucus in a cover story in this week's New York Times magazine, Draper looks at the battle among House Democrats over the. Speakership and considers whether Pelosi skills are suited to the challenges of the Trump era. Draper is a writer at large for the times magazine and the author of several books, including dead certain the presidency of George W Bush and do not ask what we do inside the house of representatives. He spoke with fresh Air's. Dave Davies will Robert Draper, welcome back to fresh air. You spent a fair amount of time with Nancy Pelosi for this piece. You know, she spent decades in politics fought a lot of battles men under a lot of media scrutiny in the midterms that we just saw I think she was the Republicans favorite target. I mean, they clearly their messaging and polling convinced them that attacking Nancy Pelosi was a way to beat the Democrats. How did she get in this position? Well, I think it starts with the fact that she is a woman who lives in San Francisco who was wealthy and who is a liberal all of this makes her the quintessence of California. Limousine liberalism. In other words, she is very very easy to caricature. Now, the fact that she is a woman of a certain age has caused these caricatures to be particularly unkind and with more than an aroma of sexism too. I think but nonetheless, it's it remains a fact that she is a progressive. She is wealthy, and therefore seemingly the very picture of the out of step democratic politician. So Republican groups and conservative organizations have taken that series of facts and run with them. With the result being one cascade of attack ads after the next. They really began. After the Democrats took back the house in two thousand six and were particularly evident in two thousand ten when I think sixty five million dollars with spent by conservative groups over that election cycle with ads that tended to make Nancy Pelosi, the evil twin of whoever was in particular congressional district, regardless of what they're voting record was and that pattern has continued throughout all the cycles and has become the sort of go to a Republican playbook in two thousand eighteen where the lot of uncertainty in the air. How is the electric sort of conflicting views about Donald Trump gonna play out going manifest the one thing that Republicans could count on her? So they believed at the time was as long as we keep talking about Nancy Pelosi. The voters will respond with disgust towards Pelosi and elect our folks it didn't quite turn out that way, however, at least as of this counting. There are the Democratic Party has picked up thirty eight house seats, right and going back to the four years that she spent a speaker from two thousand six to two thousand ten apart from the partisan attacks were there. Mainstream critiques of her either integrity or leadership that you know that. That had some legs. Well. Notable that Nancy Pelosi who's been in elective office. Since one thousand nine hundred eighty seven has lived a scandal free political life. So they don't have that on Pelosi substantively. However, her tenure speaker was very very active very episodic one those four years and were one in which she attempted to run the table with progressive legislation and some members of her own caucus were quite restive about that in particular, the energy Bill known as the cap and trade Bill of two thousand nine that a lot of the moderate blue dog. Democrats did not want to see out there at that time. You'll recall. Unemployment rate was rising hundreds of thousands of jobs were being lost per month. And so the notion of talking about green energy when manufacturing jobs and other kinds of jobs were dwindling seem. Best way off message to a lot of Democrats and at worst, deeply wrong its policy. So yes, there has always been a bit of controversy about palsy owing to those four years at speaker when she determined that we the Democrats are here to do important things. And if it runs the risk of us returning to the minority. So let's talk about her career. What's her background? How did she get into politics? Sure. She is the daughter the youngest child of Tom Dallas Sandro who was an amazing political character in the history of Baltimore, Maryland, he was a congressman during the new deal era. And then following that the mayor of Baltimore, but that does not fully capture the hold that he had over Baltimore politics in particular, the Democratic Party. The Dallas Sandro household in the little Italy neighborhood of Baltimore was regularly trafficked with Democrats passing through from Washington d. DC or Maryland and was the Goto place in so Nancy Dallas Sandro grew up with that essentially in her DNA, her older brother, Tom junior later became mayor of Baltimore I himself, and so by the time that she moved to San Francisco to marry Paul Pelosi in nineteen sixty-nine. She was already not just a committed democrat, but one who understood machine politics, the art of getting backstage deals done and then upon moving to San Francisco quickly became an organizer a fundraiser and activist within California Democratic circles. Right. She didn't run for congress until nineteen eighty-seven when she was forty six up till that point she was essentially a party operative activists fundraiser, she was two things is she was all that. You've just described. She was also a stay at home mother who sort of engaged in politics. I would hesitate to say dabble because she really ultimately ran the California Democratic party organized the nineteen. Eight hundred four democratic convention, and then was the head of the Democratic Senate campaign committee, all while raising five kids, but you know, this is one thing that people I think forget about Pelosi or at any of overlook when they're busy demonizing her as this ultra liberal that in many ways disposition only she is a woman of her generation somewhat conservative committed Catholic, and as I observed whilst he's been in the house. She looks on with a certain bemusement and younger democratic women who raise kids while they were in office. She did the first career a stay at home mother before she pursued the second one, which is to run for congress in one thousand nine hundred seven and a special election. So she gets into congress. How did she deal with the sexism and gender bias of that institution? Well, she as the only daughter with several brothers Nancy Pelosi had no illusions about what it's like to be in a male dominated arena. It wasn't either. Then or now her proclivity to to complain back, then sexism was really institutionalized in congress when Pelosi came to Washington there only a couple of dozen women evenly divided between the Republican and Democratic Party in a body of four hundred thirty five they were a puny minority and those who were there were treated as Dame's as broads as pieces of meat, and we're not given the best committee assignments so Pelosi who has expression she's very fond of saying, no one gives you power. You have to take it from them proceeded to do exactly that she slowly made her way up the chain. After a couple of terms convinced party leadership to give her a committee slot on the house appropriations committee, and then also to establish national security benefit ace on the house intelligence committee, and it was really after she had. Managed to get an excel in those committee assignments that she began to catch your eye on leadership position in the party, right in the way, you get to be a a floor leader in the party and ascended towards the the leadership is in part by raising money for a lot of other candidates. She was really active and successful in doing that. That's right. I mean, I think that it's a two or three part of a strategy. The first is to understand who's in your caucus understand what they're about what their needs are. Secondly, once you've done that to raise money on their behalf. And then Thirdly to show that you can be legislative tactician that you can be a leader that you can establish a kind of party unity. So as to accomplish certain particular legislative goals and policy sat herself to to this task after frankly, seeing her male colleagues sort of screw things up in in in the two thousand election. They believed that they could retake the majority if they would just pick up about five seats Pelosi on her own managed to raise funds to bring four California congressional district's back into the democratic column, but that was not enough. Are they still remained in in the minority by one or two and so Pelosi decided, you know, I know how to win others in my party do not know how to win as well as I do and that was really along with her ability to raise funds for particular. For particular colleagues, the clarion call that put her in a position to run for to be basically, the first female whip in the history of the American Congress, you asked her at one point if she was ever encouraged to advance by party leaders. She had an interesting response. Yes. Our answer was are you kidding? They didn't even invite me to a meeting. She said, in fact, the only time I've ever been in the speaker's office was when I became speaker myself. And when I decided that I was going to run for a leadership position specifically for him. For whip basically said rally, it's not your turn. Why why would you do this? And and when among her applies was that it was important to have a woman at the table. They in term house leadership said to her. Well, why don't you make a list of the things that you women here in congress want done, and we'll just do them for you. And so it was it was that kind of dialogue that that. As Nancy Pelosi reminded me this did not take place in the eighteen hundreds. We're talking about the year two thousand one. And so there was still a retrograde aspect to the Democratic Party, which sees itself as the Progressive Party as recently as seventeen years ago. Robert Draper story about Nancy Pelosi appears in this week's New York Times magazine. We'll continue our conversation after short break. This is fresh air..

This this op Ed congratulations Senator Feinstein, you managed to make our politics even uglier I looked at that and said oh. That's an inclined donation to Kevin de Leon. Kevin de Leon is the president pro tem, the California state Senate and is running against Dianne Feinstein for Senate in California. It's not one from each party. It's the top two vote getters and the top two vote-getters in this case, both Democrats. That's why California's set it up this way, it keeps Republicans out of the conversation. They're amazed at John Cox Republican is able to run against Gavin Newsom for governor man's why Hoge avenue some losers. But the Leon so popular as a progressive that the California Democratic party refused to endorse Dianne Feinstein who's been in the Senate for nine hundred billion years, and I believe that this piece. Congratulations Senator Feinstein you've managed to make our politics, even uglier. I am the picture of her. She could not.

"We're buying a ticket to go in any in some instances, the women's finals basically because a Serena have gotten a higher TV rating than the men's final. I know the stats backup. Nate all in that men on average generate more income than women. But at a major, of course, the price pool should be the same. I, we're going to watch men and women play in the same tournament. How can you make the argument that the men should be paid more than women? I mean here the two primetime matches for on ESPN tonight are Maria Sharapova versus Jelena Ostapenko and then Novak Djokovic versus Richard. Gus gal. So there's actually a what you would call in the UFC. I remember this whole conversation about Ronda. Rousey a co. Main we're gonna share Povo is the co main tonight at at the US open. It doesn't make sense, and it's, it's I, I guess I understand the point. He's trying to. Make. But if he's point is at major tournaments, the men should be paid more than women because the men are a bigger draw. How do you know? Right? I mean, look, let those to lock down the street in Manhattan and sue who draws a bigger crowd Serena, and it also adopted point. I think surrou- tag when. All right. Let's see the head of the California Democratic party has called for a boycott of in and out burger after a public filing revealed that the company had recently donated twenty five thousand dollars to the states Republican party. What do you think of the idea of this boycott? It is absolutely insane in and out has done nothing rocker. They've also contributed money to democratic candidates. Private companies should be able to make political contributions and for the head of the Democratic Party. I know California is a huge blue state and is very democrat for the head of the Democratic Party to come out and say, boy cut in and out because they gave money. People is ridiculous. You could do it for every single candidate that get or every every single company that makes a contribution. I feel like going to in and out and buying burgers just to support them because they're getting jacked around by this guy, he's dead wrong and he should repeal the boycott while he did. He's already completely backed down. Good. He completely backed down. And by the way, as you pointed out in and out released a statement from their vice president that they make equal contributions to both democratic and Republican political action committees. They gave eighty thousand dollars this election cycle to Californians for jobs and a strong economy, a committee focused on electing business, friendly Democrats to the state legislature. And I put this first of all, I think that the boycott thing, I mean, I know we're boycott. We're busy boycotting Nike and boycotting handing out for so confusing who on boycotting and who I'm not. I do understand, for example, in the case of Chick-fil-A that gave political contributions to anti gay organization, that's that's different. And they've also changed their policy by the way they've stopped giving money in that direction that's different than just making a donation to the Republican party. Hey, I would literally have no problem if you with you if you made a donation to any candidate from any party, if you felt strongly about an issue that they were going to lobby, right or support. That's your right as a citizen. You know that you get to, you get to decide how you spend your money. Now I can combat you by making contributions to your to that guy's opponent, and I can speak out a match dollar for dollar. I can speak out insurance it here. Why you shouldn't give your money there. But we have to have a process. These people should be able to donate money where they want and I'm not boycotting in and out. No, because the head of the Democratic Party doesn't like them. I am absolutely not going to boycott in and out burger by the way you didn't..

"Earlier this week, again, in and out burger is is like a closely held corporation. So somebody goes searching, okay, let let's see where people are giving money who gave money who had the audacity to give money to Republicans in California. Oh, oh, het name looks interesting. Oh, these are the people. This is the family that owns in and out burger they they gave money. Now the late CEO of in and out burger is rich Schneider. He was an evangelical Christian and a supporter of Republican candidates. The current president. Lindsey Snyder is also apparently, you know, similarly situated, so they have given money. Hope you're sitting down to Republicans. Now, why is this a story? Because as soon as this guy finds out, does the search and said, hey, the owners of in and out burger they, they gave. They gave money to Republicans well the chairman of the California Democratic party he is calling. For a boycott of, in, and out to in and out tens of thousands of dollars donated to the California Republican party it's time to boycott in. And, out, let Trump and his. Cronies, support these creeps and. Then this is now become the story as there's this effort, to try to. Boycott the business because the owners again this is just the owners. Exercising their first amendment rights by making a donation all right. Four one four. Seven nine nine one six, twenty that, is the, accurate mortgage talk and text, line now I think there's a.

Where he essentially says if you're a conservative or Republican, you're an evil person all. Right, I get that but the fact that. An owner of a business would make donations that fact in and of itself is that justification for a boycott whether you're Republican or democrat. Now keep in mind we saw a. Variation of this Wisconsin a few years ago. When you had someone the left who wanted to go back and they looked at some of these business people who, were, donating money in their personal capacity to Scott Walker and then let's try we. Want to, have a, boycott, of, Palermo's, pizza we want to. Have a boycott of sergeant cheese et cetera et. Cetera normally those boycotts crashed and burned but in. The age of, Trump has things change four one four seven nine. Nine one six twenty, if the owners of.

This, burger restaurant now we've seen variations of this and Wisconsin over the, years to me it's one thing if you have a business owner that decides they want to be up front, in your face this is what, my politics are and if, you're a. Republican. You're, stupid okay well, in that case I I understand but just the mere act of donating money to a party is?
