"carmela" Discussed on The Corner
"Good. I'm wondering, I'm wondering where Bianca is going to land for SummerSlam. That is mine. Yeah, and is it ria? Nope. It feels like the extension of the carmela thing feels like Rhea's out for a little bit longer. Okay. Yeah, I don't know the extent of her injury. I think you need the return of Bailey. Okay. First Bianca. And I need Bailey versus Bianca. I need that match on the card. I'm into it. I don't need another carmella match. I need. No, no, no. No, no. She absolutely needs a real floodable. And they messed up carmella, go even going into this match, they had a little opportunity, I thought, and Friday night, I mean, Monday night, Monday night when Carmel had a chance to get an upper hand on Bianca and she just got her ass kicked. I'm like, well, why do I believe she's gonna win? And she did well in the match anyway. And she knows she had a great work. She's a great she was great. She was great. I love that idea. I'm I'll go with that too. Bailey and Bianca would be fantastic. I want him to heat up Shayna Baszler because there's a story that would Bianca and Shane that Bianca never got over that hump. And then of course they're still Shana and Aranda that they're just like not doing. If you're not gonna do that match, at least put them together. Right. Do something. Let's do something. Something. Shayna needs a spot on one of the cards. All right, but nah, that's all the time we have today. Recapped money in the bank. Thank you guys for being here. Thanks for having us.

"carmela" Discussed on The Crossover NBA Show with Chris Mannix
"Carmela was the more gifted overall score at the beginning, right? Carmelo had the natural, that was how they came into the league and how they were viewed. Carmela was the score LeBron was the orchestrator who could also score. And LeBron just became a dominant scorer who also, you know, it was this phenomenal point forward type. And I always thought if Carmelo would just dedicate himself to play making a little bit more. And it was just not the way he's made up. And I criticized him for it at times and I still kind of think at times that Carmelo could have become a better assist guy a better playmaker in the course of his career and it would have led to more success with some of his teams. But some guys just aren't built that way. And maybe Tatum and brown like they're great at what they're great at. Tatum's got this incredible all around offensive repertoire. Jalen brown's a really good score and a shooter and can take on the top defensive assignments and they're both switchable and they're athletic. They've got all these other things going for them. They may or may not ever grow into great playmakers. So it's incumbent upon the team, and you know, I've said this before, too. I've gone through that same list. The had Isaiah Thomas. The head Kyrie Irving, the Terry Rozier, even once upon a time, the head Gordon Hayward, who will not a point guard was a great playmaking forward and a guy who could get a team organized and just create for teammates. They just don't have playmaking. And that's on the front office. That's on Danny ainge for over the course of his last couple of years there for the guys he lost and the guys that he couldn't acquire. That's on Brad Stevens now. And the playmaking stuff, like as I look at the roster, like Brad Stevens did some pretty smart things in the off season. Sure. Moving off Kemba Walker for Al Horford when you consider it, they're better off for that. Like Al Horford, while he struggled with his shot his own is given what we've seen from Kemba like Al's a better fit for the Celtics team than Kemba would have been in hindsight. Let it govern fournier walk. I thought that was a bad idea at the time, even though fournier keeps coming in and killing the Celtics every time he plays against them..
"carmela" Discussed on Lakers Nation Podcast
"Not a pleasant night, falling to the grizzlies lost by 5 and at one point the Lakers were up 13. This was a meltdown, picking the fourth quarter also at the end of the third quarter. Things got sloppy at the end of the game and the Lakers unfortunately found a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, joining me to help break it down is Sean Davis. Sean, how are you doing, man? Not good after that loss. Up 13 late and they go to mellow at the 5 to try to go into the fourth quarter. So not good after seeing that. Yeah, carmela Anthony will have plenty to say about him tonight. He did not have it. And look, part of this, I think on the season come right away Anthony has been overall good. I mean, he's shooting 40% from three. He's arguably the team's best shooter. He's brought some positive things. And we knew defensively there were going to be some concerns, but tonight it felt like his legs just weren't there. He just didn't have it and maybe on the second night of a back to back, that's to be expected. Back to back on the road no less, but still two for 11 from the field, two turnovers, one for 8 from three for mello. He did not. He would he looked sloppy, follow it all over himself on a number of different plays. Couldn't get a hold of the basketball a couple of times. It was bad from Carmelo Anthony and the minutes with him at the center position simply did not work and that left a lot of Lakers fans wonder why didn't the Lakers just go back to Dwight Howard who was at least fairly productive and therefore you who's a plus 17. Team high plus 17 on the night and you had the only played 16 minutes and we didn't see him in the fourth quarter at all. So that was certainly a bit of frustration, but LeBron James. 37 points, 13 board 7 to 6 two steals two blocks, 8 of 14 from three. Incredible performance from him. And that almost makes it feel a little bit worse. Because the Lakers kind of that kind of they wasted a great performance from LeBron James. They've wasted a lot of them recently. LeBron scored 30 points in each of the last 6 games and only somehow one one of those 6 games, like get it, you dealt with a lot of players being on the safety protocols list, but lose by 28 to the spurs, if you lose by 18 to the sign to blow elite, I believe to the bulls, just you've wasted a lot of really good LeBron performances as of late. Somebody mentioned in a super chat THT is useless, and Taylor Horton Tucker, another poor performance from him. He four points, two of 7 shooting 5 boards to assist. That was another questionable decision. Why was Taylor and Tucker in the game? And I look there roster is thin right now. They don't have many guys to turn.

"But still, the way the season is going has shown why you don't just have a guy as, oh, you're just a break glass in case of emergency player. You need guys who can play. And so to me letting Andre Drummond go and he wasn't a perfect fit, but he certainly would have been better than what they got out of Deandre Jordan. Yeah, and I heard you and Matt actually, I think you were talking about this on the last postgame show. And you know I hadn't even bob about it, but it made a lot of sense, but I mean, it's just, it's one of, you know, quite a few, I think, at this point. Questionable kind of decisions by rob. And again, I like Robin. He's obviously he's already got us a ring and he's a smart guy, and so I still have faith that, you know, he'll see his mistakes. I mean, he's new with this, too. What is this second or third year second or third year, right? Trevor, it's one of those suits, two or three, year two or three now. And, you know, I think he'll learn from his mistakes, but I mean, to go back to, you know, you're talking about Drummond. I remember it was just like a week or two ago where I heard you guys talking about that whole situation with where they had where they had a DJ starting over Dwight Howard. And that was absolutely driving me insane. You know what I mean? Just because I feel like Dwight so visibly had so much more to offer and cover so much more ground and so much more energy than Deandre that you know and finally they made the switch, thank goodness, but I have no idea why rob would take drumming. You know what I mean? It's probably like you said, just one of those things that weren't anticipating using either one of them very much. So anyways, that's all I have to add on that really. James bell said, I know you're not criticizing LeBron, but the 19 drops 29 or 39 isn't a night to take shots at him. Yeah, again, I'm not taking shots. I'm trying to explain why someone might feel a little bit less confident that LeBron was going to drag the team to victory compared to how it felt when Kobe was in purple and gold on any given night. LeBron is much more conscious of, I need to conserve my energy because I have to get through an 82 games. It's just the way he approaches the game. And he's a big picture guy. Yeah. That's not a criticism of LeBron. It's how he approaches things. It's different. So that's why I think that some people might see him that way. Why isn't anybody talking about Carmelo's terrible defense? You know, Carmelo Anthony, I think carmela Anthony for the most part tries on defense. We knew coming in. He wasn't going to be a good defender. I think from an effort perspective, he's actually been a bit better than what I expected on the defensive end of the floor. Now, that doesn't make him a super capable defender. That doesn't. But I think that he's been better than I expected. I don't think I'm gonna criticize Carmelo Anthony defensively. He has some things where just basically he's not capable of doing at this point in terms of defending on the perimeter and things of that nature. But it's not a lack of effort. That's the problem. And for some guys, I feel like it is..

"What specifically stood out to you, Matt rotation wise, that you thought may have caused this day to go awry. I think the easy answer is when Vogel decided to take out Carmelo AD and Russ at the same time. But that was only what possession. You don't do that. I know, but I'm just saying though. Yes. As far as your process goes, right? I think at this point, it's too easy for you and I to even just say, yeah, you should be able to keep one of the stars out there. Absolutely on the floor at all times. But I mean, I get it from Vogel's perspective, right? Maybe he just need to get him a quick blow because like you said it wasn't that many possessions, but it was just concerning that that was a lineup that he turned to at some point. And just not one of those things that I personally would have done. But aside from that, going back to Westbrook, I think what you said is true. Definitely in that we can't boil down the whole game to just those last couple of possessions, you know, Russ obviously turning over the ball was a back breaker and then him taking the last shot at the end of the buzzer, also not a great decision, especially when carmela Anthony seemed to be heating up again and had just came down to the floor the other possession and knocked down another three. You would think the ball would go back to him or find his way to him, but you know, Russ decided to take the game into his hands. And it didn't go down. So those are very, very loud mistakes. I'll use your word loud. But those are two possessions, but for the rest of the game, Russ was pretty good for the most part. I don't know if we're going to reward tonight. I don't know if that's the mood tonight. But Russell was actually going to be by pick for the 360 award because I thought he was pretty crucial in certain stretches to keep the Lakers afloat in humming, but obviously those two back breaking possessions are I think are going to remove him from my list here. And so I've got to probably pick AD when we talk about it. But yeah, overall, though, just wasn't a good night for the Lakers. That's an understatement. And I am with everyone else that I'm upset, but I'm kind of just laughing through the pain now. And I suggest most people LeBron James being out, like, obviously, that's a factor. We know he's going to miss at least a week that news came out today. And I think that is part of the frustration as well. Wrapped up into this game. It's the Lakers got hit.

"Couple of things, right? When Carmelo Anthony's behind the line, behind the arc, it's so hard to do anything to affect their shot because he's tall. He's got size to him. So when he rises up and he's got that pretty quick release, even guys who are right in his grill can't affect his shot. And so that's important because he makes such a high percentage that he's got that gravity. You can see the difference when Carmelo Anthony is on the floor versus when it's Kent bazemore or Avery. Bradley, who both have to be respected behind the three point line, but it's not the, oh my God, this guy is going to kill us if we don't get out to him right this second response that you get when the ball gets swung to Carmelo Anthony. So the spacing on the floor is very different. I've noticed when Carmelo Anthony is the guy that's hanging out in the corner. Yeah, and you know, when carmela gets the ball and he has a little bit of space, you know, it's going up. So defenses know they have to scramble. And given that he's shooting over 50% from the field and beyond the arc, defense is really do have to scramble and get out there as quick as possible. And that compromises them. But you know, the other thing as far as Melo's jump shot, I do agree. You know, he's 6 8 like a legit 6 8 and he's got a high release point on his jumper. But the thing I've always really liked about his jump shot is how quick he gets off the floor. I think that's a really underrated thing when you diagnose jump shots is that, you know, it's so sudden and so quick that defenders don't really have a lot of time to react and contest it in the first place. So that's also definitely working MLs favor and has been throughout his career. And I'm happy he's doing it in purple and gold..

"Documental yukon bet and jim in florence on the forum. Hi this is james. Patrick and i'm joined with my partner. Florence carmella. are you florence. I'm doing great shame. Join the summer. how about you. Same thing summer's kind of it's cool over here in the low eighties and for everybody being affected by the weather. We hope you're safe and indoors and nothing bad is happening because there was a lot of hullabaloo about it so everyone be safe out there. We are going to be doing our book review and our burke review is a special one. It's fun and exciting to see a new writer coming out in the imagination and the different ideas that they have and the book that we're coming out. Why don't you introduce it as we start. The book is called threads of blood and silks. Don't wielders legacy trilogy. And it's from an up and coming author. Cherilyn a spacex and i have to say for a new author. She absolutely does a great job with the book. It's definitely a book for a lovers of fantasy and again if you like elements of thrill like if you're into adventure and looking for a good thriller it definitely paint a very vibrant background and the characters are very interesting. I mean there's some tragedy and there's definitely highs and lows. But i have to say i was very pleasantly surprised and i really love the way she writes. Her writing is fun. It's kind of a new. it's young it's exciting. And i think it's really interesting. They're trying to locate a dagger to use it in a spell that they had found the spell can be used to restore the island nation to its former lori. We kind of mixed it between the national treasure as well as lord of the rings. Lord of the rings has the fantasy. And that's the different worlds and trying to get different clues and that's kind of where the national treasure comes in because i love natural treasure. What a great movie. The second one. The first one that was amazing with with all the clues and the different strategies that they used and then another clue would come up. And that's kind of what this book is about. They have some interesting sexy characters. Hip walk characters. With jared and alex and people that are trying to get information using the clues to kind of get all of the things that they need to save pass landed and it's really an interesting way of doing a book because she's giving kind of that fantasy fun and then she's also making it where you have to think and i think that's what i like. It's not one of these books that you just read and silly and all this nonsense you really. Don't you leave your brain at the door. This one's fun because you try to figure out the clues try to figure out the questions and there's a twist and turn to a lot of the things you think you figured out it goes on a totally different direction. And that's what i really liked about. This book definitely an emotional roller coaster. They even have like a family feud of sorts. Something that is revisited in the book. And you know there's a lot of tension or is it adventure twists and turns asked what kept me with the book turning the pages and not wanting to put it down love the character. I especially love alex. And i think that when you are writing a book of this kind i think that it is really important to be able to have the reader connect with one or some of the characters. It's a very important thing especially when you're getting into that fantasy and you're one of those sort of buy in your fingernails seeing what's going to happen next. It's sort of like make believe and pretend so. It's good to have a character that you can really connect with. I agree well said. Because i think also what i like is there's different aspects of each personnel. He of the characters and you could kind of. It's not like marvel were. Oh my gosh. I relate soda iron man or something like that because he can't because they have superpowers. So but you can relate in kind of the quizzical nature of the of the different characters. Also their thought processes how a man and a woman would think each kind of clue out. And i think that's what i really enjoyed about. It is and then also trying to figure out the clues along with the other characters. I think it's really interesting so to me. If you're into lands of your into the fantasies you're into the relationships there is some adult content. so again we just want to let you know that there is some adult content. But it's very much a book that i think if you're into fantasy and you're into the different worlds. You're ended the kind of fast pace national treasure type situation with the book. You will really love this now florence. I'll give you the last word on. And i'm looking forward to the third one which caroline is definitely working on. I was just going to say. I am looking forward to the third one as well because this second book kind of leaves you wanting more i will say that and i was pleasantly surprised. I have a lot of young adults in my family. I have a lot of kids in their late teens. And early twenties. They will absolutely love love. This book and i know for a fact that my nieces and nephews were very very big fans of the harry potter type books lord of the rings and all those movies and for something like this threads of blood and still would definitely be a book i would say for teens and young adult readers. It does keep you on the edge of your seat. I two books. I would say absolutely i would get them together. And then this way when the third book comes out you're all set and then christmas. I know it's still august. But hey christmas will be here before you know it. So why not. I mean if you have young reader in your family somebody who loves reading loves these fantasy novels and so absolutely i get it five stars. That was the other thing i was like. I wanna give an honest serious review. And i absolutely would give it five stars because i think there's something in it for everybody and also make sure that you go onto facebook and instagram and twitter and caroline is very active online. She's fun she's artistic. She just went to comic. She did 'cause play. She's a fun person to follow a lot of things going on. She's a great artist. She does some artwork.

I saw depicted about those individuals on horseback treating human beings the way they were four and i fully support what is happening right now. Which is a thorough investigation. Into exactly what is going on there but human beings should never be treated that way. And i'm deeply troubled about it. The whole point is that we have to understand eighty. I mean talk about a country that has just experienced so much tragedy that has been about natural disasters and we really have to do a lot more to recognize that as a member of the western hemisphere. We've got a support. Some very basic needs that. The people haiti have to get back.

The Biden Administration Knew of the ISIS Threat Ahead of Airport Terror Attacks
"Breaking news out of kabul the vitamin ministration new of the isis threat ahead of these attacks isis of course claiming responsibility for the attacks that led to thirteen slain u s servicemembers. Nothing would surprise me at this point after watching that debacle yesterday. The white house if winged monkeys came down right now out of the sky and spirited me out of this studio. I would be less surprised i would. I just want to know what their names are wouldn't surprise me. Nothing surprises me anymore. Even even biden standing there. Saying i've been instructed. I've been instructed to who to ask to to call on. I've been instructed you're supposed to be the leader of the free world. You're supposed to be the leader of what cut is that. This is unreal. He stood there and said ladies and gentlemen game you list here. Refers is destructive to call with camera. Download embassy you were given a list where you put gave you those restrictions carmela. Who's telling you whose instructing you who you are allowed to call on in the media least takes at least you took some questions. He hadn't been doing that much lately. I mean peter dude. He even called on peter doocy which was a pretty interesting exchange. Where biden said. I want to call on the most interesting guy in the press corps. Here was the extreme president. There had not been a us. Servicemember killed in combat in afghanistan since february of twenty twenty. You set a deadline. You pulled troops out. You sent troops back in and out. Twelve marines are dead. You said the buck stops with you. Do you bear any responsibility for the way that things have unfolded in the last two weeks. I bear responsibility for fundamentally all the happened of late. Here's the deal you know. I wish you one day say these things you know as well as i do that a former president made a deal with the taliban he we get all american forces out of afghanistan by may one in return. The commitment was made and that was a year before in return. He was given a commitment that the taliban would continue to attack others but would not attack any american forces you mean. President trump was protecting americans really. That's terrible what an evil monster. Trump was president of the united states. You mean he was protecting american servicemen and women betcha. There's thirteen american families grieving today. Who wished the same happened from the forty. Six president of the united

"You up to speed with. We have a white house. Press conference underway right now with the The sweaty looking and generally confidence uninspiring national security advisor jake sullivan who is addressing. The evacuation of kabul. I think at least ever. When i will agree to it isn't evacuation. It is an emergency situation. It's not an orderly dispersal of personnel from afghanistan to the rest of the world. This is a oh my gosh. Everybody run for the lifeboat situation after. The titanic is hit the iceberg so he is updating right. Now nothing particularly pressing. I've seen yet. But we'll continue to have our team monitoring those Well in real time What what he's saying. They point out that they're in talks with the taliban on a daily basis. So let's all be very clear. This by administration is very much day to day. Negotiating with terrorists and in this case negotiating with terrorists over the lives of american civilians who are effectively in the hands of a terrorist organization or at least at the mercy of one. I know the i know. The trump administration did talks external talks in doha to get us to this place. The bilateral negotiations. But we're essentially begging taliban checkpoints. Please don't hurt americans. That's what we've got right now or or else. And the by administration stuck with the what the orioles. We've also got something on this clay. We've got the fda approval from biden. Speeches well yeah. No i mean. I think the we've hit on this is key. Joe biden's entire presidency. Maybe relying on a nineteen year old afghani taliban member not deciding to fire crazily into a crowd of potential american civilians. Because if that happens. This has been ghazi on steroids and by the way speaking of steroids. How stupid of the biden administration to the point that they think that they have any real strong aspect here of their pudding. Carmela harris in vietnam to just reinforce the whole stupid i think they thought that this evacuation go great but now even stupid journalist covering kamala harris are going to be like. You're in vietnam. It's kind of an eerie payroll to how awful this situation and afghan- afghanistan has gone. They've made that That comparison almost impossible to avoid by sending kamala harris there kamala harris. You can tell now from what's happened even in the first year. The biden presidency. She's a politician who really built her career on personal connections and also just being along for the ride so to speak. I mean she was along for the ride with the The boarder right. She was supposed to be the border. Czar because it was going to be. Oh an opportunity to to to build the resume and the credibility because they were going to deal with the surge of migrants. Now it turns out that it was a disaster sees it disastrous getting worse and she tried the same exact move. Play the leaks about. Oh a part of the afghan taliban and negotiations withdrawal. That was back in may now on us so she's just a person who's who tries to present herself as in the room so that there's some sense that she actually has gravitas as a politician when i mean the question of what does kamala harris stand for is hilarious one because nobody knows including kamala harris. Although i guess you could actually argue it's just whatever is most advantageous to her and the democrat party demands of her at any given moment but we also had biden. Speaking top of j sullivan nascar advisor. He's not he's saying we believe. We have the wherewithal to get americans out of better or else is biden. Presidency is catastrophe year one had already is looking really shaky but klay biden spoke and now this is what i've been worried about. The fda approval is turning into will. Now were really going to go for mandates they looked at the mountains of clinical data clinical trial data and the safety and efficiency data and concluded without question. The vaccine was safe and effective for emergency use in december. That same thing. We've got those shots arms at the time. Three hundred fifty million in the united states and billions across the world. They can't poring over this data. The fda approval is the gold standard. And as i said now it has been granted. Those have been waiting for full approval. Should go get your shot now. Vaccinations free. It's easy and safe. And it's effective clay. This is what we're facing to your point buck. I mean look at the data all right. Let's look at the data. Seventy three percent now of people who are eighteen and up have gotten the vaccine seventy three percent sixty five and up ninety one percent sixty five enough we were told. And this is this goes to. I think the the failure of expectations we were told buck when seventy percent of people had a vaccine adult that everybody would be able to go back to normal. Are we normal right now book. Do you feel like we're gonna be normal anytime soon. We're never going to be. We're never going to be normal. Never going to be normal. That's that's where this look. They've always the dream climate change catastrophes him. Why do people like this so much of the democrat party because the dream is you have a perpetual narrative of crisis that allows for the trampling of individual rights the mobilization of collectivism and democrat what they would think is benevolent authoritarianism. Effectively cova gives them all of that and like climate change. They're actually are. They have been a lot of people who have died from it. So they're not letting this thing go. This is how they want the world to be you. And i are fighting for a world that they think they defeated and is never coming back. They won't say that now but they also wouldn't say eight months ago that they were gonna be mandating vaccines. I mean the big takeaway. We have from From what biden has been saying here. Is that clay. He wants. He wants the private sector corporations while mandated. I mean what's going to happen and i understand. There are people that are in red states. Our saying all right. I'm not going to bend the knee. Okay get the shot or you lose your job. Some people will say. I'll go find another job. Whatever but render if it's the state where it's a federal or if it's across the board in your state from all the private sector businesses are basically doing it now. You're just looking unemployment yet. And here's my big flaw with this. In general it doesn't solve cove it right. And that's what is so infuriating to me about all of these updates and everything that joe biden is going to say were like i said. Seventy three percent of adults now eighteen and up have gotten the vaccine ninety one percent of sixty five and up if we get those. Let's say we get it to eighty five or ninety percent or whatever that number is the numbers out of israel where they are about to set a new all time high.
Kamala Harris Distances Herself From Joe Biden's Afghanistan Catastrophe
"Miranda devine on fox news yesterday. A new york post reporter had a pretty interesting analysis. Not only joe biden but of the fabled popular kamala harris the vice president she was. She's been front and center on all things biden. Remember all the press conferences with carmela harris by his side. Where is she now. Unfortunately this has been a debacle afghanistan. Joe biden owns it. He stinks of failure and defeat and she wants to be as far away from that she possibly tan. She's trying to keep her reputation intact. It's it's quite a betrayal of the vice president. I think not to be standing by the president side when he. He's now given to sort of speeches. I guess you'd call them in this since friday. Since this verse a problem started to rear its head. And it's i guess require remarkable that she has decided not to show solidarity with the president. And chose you where the white house is ash. She i suppose is thinking that you will be stepping into the president shoes. But i think it's really quite strange that she's forging ahead with this trip to southeast asia. Which i think is really a mistake. She's forging ahead. yeah she's going to vietnam. Where do we send the vp. Let's senator vietnam. Why don't we send her to antarctica. Maybe we could just put her in an outpost at the north pole gutters far away from this messes possible holy cow. What a mess worried right now. This is a true crisis.

They might think it costs money. There's lots of reasons why people a lot of people just put stuff off until they actually go to their doctor.

"Harris's trip to Guatemala. Not loved by the White House. Russell 105 50 K. F Y. I appreciate you being here. It even CNN reporting this morning no surprise that the White House was not thrilled by that answer a little bit confused as to why she handled it that way. Then the obvious discomfort with Lester's questioned the nervous laughter there. It's hard to understand because this is a question that the administration now he said. It's hard to understand, he said. It's hard to understand. You did say this was CNN rights to CNN, The Clinton news network. They can't move away from there even reporting the White House insiders are uncomfortable with. Yeah, just the scope should we're going here? It's hard to understand because this is a question that the administration's been dealing with for months as she has been tasked with the diplomatic assignment with Guatemala and Mexico and other countries in the Northern Triangle, and so rather than dealing with the border they've had already answer for it. Even John Berman. Rob's very favorite Boston job. Vice President Kamala Harris back in the United States this morning after a trip to Guatemala and Mexico, her first foreign trip as vice president. This morning. We're told that some of what she said on the trip for answers to questions, maybe even obvious questions. Those answers have insiders perplexed, perplexed. There's no you. It was so bad CNN cut away from her taking questions from reporters yesterday. It was that bad. It was such bad TV. It's such bad radio. It's such bad political theater that they had to move away from it. The White hat White House, probably asking themselves at least a lot of people in the White House today. Wondering, why did we pick her? Well, that's the problem is they did in this was her opportunity to shine. This was an easy opportunity. This is the equivalent of not even a layup in an NBA game. It's the layup line before the game starts. You go down there to shake some hands. Yeah, you offer some money. You say we're getting down to the root cause of this because we want to help our friends and neighbors and Guatemala and El Salvador, Honduras and Mexico. But we also want to send the message. If you come to the United States, you will be sent home. It's very easy thing to say, and she had to know. Kamala Harris President elect Kamala Harris had to know what she was going to be asked the question. Going to go to the border. You know, the United States were not nothing, not the Guatemala board. I'm going to go the United States border, and she asked the question five time and botched the answer. Five different times. It was unbelievable. I've never seen anything like that. In politics in my 20 plus years of covering this is something that we didn't have to show you today. I want you to hear part of her answer that made CNN cut away from the press conference because it just it was this bad. The reality of it is that We need to prioritize what's happening at the border and we have to prioritize why people are going to the border. And so let's talk about what's going on in the places that are causing the issue at the border. I think it's short sided for any of us who are in the business of problem solving problem solving business. That's what what business are you in common problem solving suggest we're only going to Respond to the reaction as opposed to addressing the cost. That's that's that's as if somebody is having a heart attack. And being rushed to the hospital. Somebody hold on a second hold on hold saying, Let's let's let's work on this guy's diet first. Before. We actually take care of the problem that's happening right now, let's focus on getting to the grocery store. As a matter of fact, let's open that fridge and let's get all that heart disease causing stuff out of there, and that's what's going to. We need to work on these things simultaneously. It's a joke. Especially given the fact that the vice president the United States has very little legislative authority. Basically as vice president, you're the president of the Senate, and you can only cast devoted of Thai, so it's important in a 50 50 Senate and Camilla may have a role. But she has very little to do with problem solving because she doesn't have any authority to make decisions, which is in the problem solving business. Yeah, she said. She's never solved the problem in her adult life. I'm sure but this is it. We called it. We knew it. You can check it off your list of another thing. Russell, Notre got corrected. Kamala just doesn't have it. I wish she did, because it be better for America that she does. It would be better for America that she goes down to Guatemala and Mexico actually tries to Problem solved, but she doesn't because she doesn't know how she even tried to go into this Microsoft in yesterday. We're working with Microsoft to get digital banking banking and digital connected ness for the people of Guatemala who that's going to keep them from coming to the United States, people that have no cell phones, but they need mobile banking. And they make $2 a day. Rob was wrong. I was robbed was very You are very wrong. You said she has not solved the problem in a while. She solved a problem within the last year. Mm yeah. She couldn't even get one delegate. She was not going to be the president of the United States. She figured out a way with the DNC on how to become the president of the United States without getting one vote. That's very okay. I do stand corrected on that. And it makes you look at Camilla's history in Mexico. How did she do that? Enquiring minds want to know? Not even mad? Yeah, impressed, But the bottom line is this. You can't even run from this. CNN can't run from this exactly why they cut away yesterday from the vice president, Knighted states speak Again. This was supposed to be her shining moment her coming out party if you will, her first big international adventure as vice president, United States CNN cut away because they are now in the business of protecting the Biden administration. That's why they were like we have to leave this because it's a disaster. It is making Camilla look awful, and she was supposed to be looking amazing in this moment and couldn't even do it. There are some talking heads that were running to her defense. Max boot. That's fantastic. CNN talking at Max boot, he say, he said, Look, this is all just a right wing attack that Kamila hasn't visited. The border solider is to my mind. It's basically a phony baloney scandal because you know you have this right wing attack machine led by Fox and others, and they need to attack Democrats for something, but they can't lay a glove because he seems so innocuous, so likable. And so they're looking for. Somebody else on the in the Democratic Party to beat up and Vice President Harris as a color is a prime target. Because Biden is so relatable and so likable, right wing attack machine led by Fox has to find somebody to beat up on and that is when Carmela look, I'll give you I'll give him credit. Part of that is true, because look, the game that we play is Republicans versus Democrats, right? We think our ideas are better than Democrats ideas. So we present our ideas as counter to Democrat ideas. That's par for the course. But the mainstream corporate media is all in on protecting the Biden administration. It's not just CNN. It's certainly not because Joe Biden is likable. Joe Biden's biggest selling point is he's a decent guy. Well, you know who also is decent guys. Mike and me were decent guys. The average person is a decent human being. There's not that many complete jerk faces out there..

"And money. Jesus Christ. I would go full girl with the dragon tattoo on that bullshit, but like I said, there's a lot to Britney story that people don't care to tell you. I told you what I told you, do with it, what you will. By the way, I found a new reason to hate LeBron James and I keep them coming if you got more reasons. Let me know. Did you know before LeBron James way back in the day before he chose to join the Miami Heat and form that big super team of Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade, he was obviously the NBA's hottest free agent ever. We all know that. That means every team was pulling out all the stops to get his talents into their city. That included, of course, the New York Knicks. And the Knicks back then literally recruited some of the biggest stars in New York. And that included Jimmy gandolfini and 80 falcon from The Sopranos. They were asked to reprise their roles as Tony and carmela soprano in this film short that was designed to appeal to LeBron James. It's never been seen before. It was shot in 2010. It was shot three years. After the HBO series ended so ambiguously with those people in the diner, it is Tony dead is the alive. What happens? Everybody was left wondering about Tony's fate. When the diner turned to black, but the existence of this short, I never heard of it. It was revealed on the rapper chuck D's podcast. 80 falcon was on. And she said, I can't believe this film didn't work. Not so much because of The Sopranos. I just thought it's New York. How does anybody not say no to New York for God's sake? But LeBron James did. So Jonathan hawk, who's directed a bunch of ESPN's 30 to 30 documentaries, great series. He did the ten minute short. And on that short guest included Robert De Niro, super Nick fan Spike Lee, and even Donald Trump, they all pitched in to get LeBron to come to Gotham City. And Edie says she does remember doing it and what's absolutely amazing to her and she didn't know who LeBron James even was. But they used to get all these requests all the time back then. And I remember when I had my talk show, we put out lists of people to wish me luck on my new talk show, The Rock did it, Trump was asked, he did it. So many New Yorkers were asked to do it and they responded. It was the hoot..

And I know he's home because I saw his cock and I'll tell you how. Well, I'll tell you who else knows. 80 falcon knows, okay? Carmela soprano, as well as, you know, well, she's also a nurse Jackie. So I should just call it. But she's really carmella. Either way, she and Stanley Tucci start in a Broadway play called Frankie and Johnny of the Clair de lune. In 2002, at the time, tucci's married had two kids, but every night he and Edie Falco were performed this play nude fully nude. No nylon stockings, no cock socks. No merchants nude. So it was the hottest ticket in town because you just knew these two are fucking come on. Family are not. Married or not, this is too hot. When I saw it, I couldn't believe it. I happened to also know that falco had a crush on Stanley Tucci going back to college. The year she began to go to Sunni purchase, which is an upstate college upstate New York college. That's the two she'd already graduated. So he was like four years ahead of her. Or maybe two, but he was advanced in his schooling. What have you? And once he left college, he was getting steady work on stage in New York. So there were posters of Stanley Tucci all over SUNY purchase as if the show looked. This local kid made good. And for actresses and training, like 80 falconer girlfriends, they all looked up to his picturesque, we can make it too. And they all had a crush on. Fast forward to 2002, she's in bed with him on stage, fully nude, and they got it on. And she liked to say, you know, oh, I trust Stanley implicitly. He's in love with his wife. He's got a family, so it's not as weird as you might think it is, except it was. And at some point, things shifted. Things popped up. Falcon two, she began attending some events together and it seemed obvious that tucci had left his wife of 7 years whose name was Kate. And these two two G and falco had a torrid affair for two years. He left his wife, then they ended it and he went back to his wife and she took him back in. And that his wife died a few years later. The same year he was nominated for an Oscar. And I always wonder, they say that that kind of stress, you know, down the line can lead to cancer..

California Hospitals, Nurses Union Battle Over Patient Ratio Law
"Is a battle going on between hospitals and the state's powerful nurses union because of a surgeon hospitalizations. The state is asking nurses to take care of Morven since than they normally would. It waters down a nurse to patient ratio law that so far exists only in California from member station KQED. April Damn, Bosque reports normally telemetry nurses take care of four patients at once. But since the governor relax the state's ratio law in mid December Norris a black has to keep track of six were given 50% more patients, and we're expected to do 50% more things. With the same amount of time Her patients are sick. Many of them are in the hospital for a stroke or heart attack, and they have cove it Black is terrified of missing something or making a mistake. You know, I go home and I feel like I could have done more. Oh, I could have done this for them. I could have done that for them. But there just wasn't enough time. In recent weeks, the state has excused 170 hospitals from the normal ratio, rules and nurses have taken to the streets in socially descent. Protests like this one in San Bernadino. Thank you's hospitals of putting profits over preparing for a search of laying nurses off over the summer than not hiring enough for winter. It seems that the hospitals have been more reactive. Than proactive in their staffing In California's current search four times as many people are testing positive for the virus compared to the summer up to 7000 new patients could be coming to California hospitals every day. That's according to Carmela Coyle, the head of the state's Hospital association, she says there's no way around the math. We are simply out of nurses out of doctors out of respiratory therapists. Coyle says hospitals have tried the higher contract nurses but because California's surged early during the summer and other parts of the United States then surged afterwards. Those travel nurses are taken. Coyle says hospitals next step is to try team nursing pulling nurses from the operating room, for example, to help with covert patients. Economist Joints. Pets studies the healthcare workforce at UC San Francisco. She says hospitals should have started training for this over the summer. But they didn't either because of costs or excessive optimism. California was doing so well and that we kind of got it under control, and I think there was a lot of belief that we would be able to maintain that. Spent, says the nurses union has reason to be defensive of the law that limits the number of patients nurses have to care for. At one time, it took 10 years before it passed the Legislature in 1999. And several more to clear the court challenges, including one from then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as some rally where they were protesting. He made some offhand comment about kicking the nurses butts because I'm always kicking up, Bud. That's why they don't like me, which really hardened the opposition to him. Nurses prevailed in the court of public opinion and law, but the battle has made them fiercely protective of patient ratios. Even accused hospitals of using the pandemic to try to roll them back for good. Hospitals deny this and spent says it's unlikely to go in and say, Oh, you clearly did so well without ratios when we let you wave them, So let's just eliminate them entirely, I think would be just adding insult to moral injury to nurses.

A nurse to patient ratio law that so far exists on Lee in California. KQED s health correspondent April de Bosque reports. Normally telemetry. Nurses take care of four patients at once. But now that the governor has relaxed the state's ratio law Norris a black has to keep track of six were given 50% more patients, and we're expected to do 50% more things. With the same amount of time Her patients are sick. Many of them are in the hospital for a stroke or heart attack, and they have coveted black is terrified of missing something or making a mistake. You know, I go home, and I feel like I could have done more. Oh, I could have done this for them. I could have done that for them. But there just wasn't enough time. In recent weeks, the state has excused 170 hospitals from the normal ratio, rules and nurses have taken to the streets in socially distant protests like this one in San Bernadino. Carrying signs that say ratios save lives. They accused hospitals of putting profits over preparing for a surge of lying nurses off over this summer than not hiring or training enough for winter. It seems that the hospitals have been more reactive. Than proactive in their staffing in California's current surge four times as many people are testing positive for the virus compared to the summer peak up to 7000 new patients could be coming to California hospitals every day. That's according to Carmela Coyle, the head of the state's Hospital association. She says. There's no way around the math. We are simply out of nurses out of doctors out of respiratory therapists. Coyle says hospitals have tried to hire contract nurses, but because California's surged early during the summer and other parts of the United States then surged afterwards. Those travel nurses are taken, she says. The change to the ratios is saving lives, and we cannot in the crisis of this proportion, buying nurses and doctors hands with red tape. Coyle says hospitals next step is to try team nursing pulling nurses from the operating room, for example, to help with covert patients. UC San Francisco economics professor joins Spitz says hospitals should have started training for this over the summer, but they didn't either because of costs or excessive optimism. California was doing so well and that we kind of got it under control, and I think there was a lot of belief that we would be able to maintain that spent says the nurses union has reason to be defensive of the ratio law. It took 10 years before it passed the Legislature in 1999, then several more to clear the court challenges, including one from then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as some rally where they were protesting. He made some offhand comment about kicking the nurses but because I'm always kicking death, but that's why they don't like me, which really hardened the opposition to him. Nurses prevailed in the court of public opinion and law, but the battle has made them fiercely protective of ratios. They've even accused hospitals of using the pandemic to try to roll them back for good. Hospitals denied this, and Spence says it's unlikely to go in and say Oh, you clearly did so well without ratios when we let you wave them, So let's just eliminate them entirely, I think would be just adding insult to moral injury to nurses. The public can see that nurses are overworked and burned out by the pandemic spent says there will be little appetite to cut back their job protections once it's over.
Bryan Cranston on new TV drama "Your Honor"
"Bryan cranston. The star of amc's breaking bad returns to series television for the first time since that show left. The air in a new showtime miniseries called your honor which begins on sunday.

Cranston had played the goofy dad on the fox sitcom malcolm in the middle then. Redefined himself brilliantly as walter white. The meek high school chemistry teacher in breaking bad. What made walter break. Bad was the sudden news that he had contracted terminal cancer leading to a series of increasingly momentous decisions. In the new showtime miniseries. Your honor cranston returns to series tv playing another character who gets some sudden life changing news. This time he plays. Michael desio a compassionate judge in new orleans and a single parent raising his teenage son after the death of his wife a year ago in an unexpected tragedy. On the day of that saturday anniversary the sun adam played by hunter. Doohan experiences an unexpected tragedy of his own after leaving flowers at the convenience store where his mother was an innocent bystander.

Adam after returning home tells his father what happened next. Where did this happen. Okay okay so would be the new hospital. Then the emeralds. Taken to what in new orleans and i don't know well the police must have sex. Overweight drove away before the tried to can give you called nine hundred time to try to at least yes or no please. I could breathe okay. I got you guys. This ten part series begins like the. Hbo mini series the night of following a young man. He descends deeper and deeper into a horrifying spiral of accidents and consequences that engrossing 2016 mini series was created by peter moffett who adapted it from his own british series. Moffitt is the adapter of your honor as well but this time he's not working from his own story showtimes. Your honor is his new version of a twenty seventeen. Israeli drama called ca- votto which has the same basic plot and is available of sample on youtube but for this adaptation for the united states. The location is changed in new orleans and other elements are given an american spin from police brutality. To local criminal activity one thing stays the same though. And it's thing that makes your honor so gripping from the start the father doing the right thing as both a judge and a citizen escorts his son to the police station to turn them in with an explanation but when he gets there he sees the father of the victim and recognizes him as a powerful local mob boss. All of a sudden the judge realizes that to turn his son in would be to signed his death warrant so from that point on. What is the right thing to do. And how many people does he have to enlist or deceive to do it. There's a certain flavor of breaking bad this because we're essentially put in the position of sympathizing with and rooting for a person who's breaking and avoiding the law but that's not a complaint because breaking bad may be the best tv drama series ever made and bryan cranston once again crafts a marvelously nuanced and empathic performance. And in your honor. He's not alone. The executive producers in addition to moffitt in cranston include robert and michelle king the talented creators of the good wife. So both the characters and the legal twists are fully drawn hundred. Doohan as the judge's son has the same relatable acting skills cranston and needs to since he carries most of the show's opening our and other riveting characters and actors abound michael stool barred from. Tv's fargo plays. The mob boss and hope davis plays his wife as very fierce and involved sort of carmela soprano to his tony and while margo martindale from justified in. The americans doesn't show up as the judges mother-in-law until episode four. Wow is she worth the wait. The writers on your honor include moffitt himself and the directors include clark johnson. An actor and director way back on homicide life on the street and edward. Berger who did a marvelous job directing another showtime miniseries patrick metros showtime provided only four of the ten episodes of your honoring advance. Each one. both impressed and surprised me and made me hungry to see the next cranston's michael ziada is smart enough to think on his feet and almost every scene requires him to do just that to avoid exposure endanger and to protect his only son whatever the repercussions to others the series title. Your honor isn't just the judge's work title. it's also at the center of the show. When it comes to your family would you do to save them. And what effect will that have upon your moral code your relationships with others and your honor
Obama hits the trail for Biden in Pennsylvania
"Will joe and Carmela at the helm you're not gonNa have to think about the crazy things they said every day. and. That's worth a lot. You're not going to have to argue about them every day. It just won't be so exhausting. That was President Barack Obama in Philadelphia today campaigning for Joe Biden Camara's President Obama spoke in ways we've heard before about his respect and deep friendship with Joe. Biden. Saying that his vice president Joe Biden made him a better president. But president trump spoke very pointedly. About the current president in a way that we have not heard before. This was just reported in the last forty eight hours. We know that he continues to business with China. Because he's got a secret Chinese bank. Account. How is that possible? How is that possible secret Chinese back Calcutta listen. Can you imagine if I had a secret Chinese bank account? When I was running for reelection. You. Thank you. Thank you. Thank Fox News might have been a little concerned about that. They would have called me Beijing. It is not a great idea. To have a president who owns a bunch of money to people overseas. That's not a good idea his first year in the White House. The only paid seven hundred and fifty dollars in federal income tax. Listen my first job was at a baskin Robbins. When I was that. I think I'm. GonNa. Pay. More taxes. Working at A. Dispensing ice cream. How is that possible? How many people here paid less than that President Obama spoke at a driving rally where the audience remained in their cars the event observed all of the CDC guidelines for social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic unlike Donald Trump President Obama made it very clear that he was very happy to be back in Pennsylvania. A No The president spent some time in Erie last night. Apparently he complained about having a travel here many. Events, Short poor guy. I don't feel that way I love coming to Pennsylvania. You guys delivered for me twice and I. Am back here tonight to ask you to deliver the White House Joe. Biden Kamla Harris. He's right. The president of the United States actually did go to Erie Pennsylvania last night to win votes and then complained to his audience. In Erie Pennsylvania that he had to go to Iraq Pennsylvania, to win votes because of the plague. Donald. Trump said before the plague came in I had it made I wasn't coming to Erie. Honest. There was no way I was coming I didn't have to. President Obama. Responded to that today. Eight months into this pandemic cases are rising again across this country. Donald trump isn't suddenly going to protect all of us. He can't even take the basic steps to protect himself. Just, last night e complained up an area that the pandemic made him. Go back to work I'm quoting here. He was he was upset with the pandemics. made him go back to work. If he'd actually been working time, it never would have gotten this. So. Here's the truth. I want to be honest here this pandemic would have been challenging for any. President. But this idea that somehow this White House has done anything but completely screw this up is just not true. I'll give you a very specific example career identified at first case at the same time that the United States. At the same time. Their per capita death toll is just one point three percent of what ours is. In Canada is just thirty nine percent of what ours is. Other countries are still struggling with the pandemic, but they're not doing as bad as we are because they've got a government that's actually been paying attention when asked if he'd do anything differently. Trump said not much. Not much. Nothing, you can think of that could have helped some people keep their loved ones alive. Joe's now going to screw up testing. He's not GonNa Call Scientists Idiots. He's not going to host a super spreader event at the White House.
Pence criticizes Harris' record as attorney general of California
"Is record as California's attorney general and San Francisco district attorney came up late in last night's vice presidential debate. But it became a big topic. Ladies political correspondent Marissa Lagos was watching and she joins us now. Marissa. How did Vice President Mike Pence paint? Harris is California in San Francisco record? As a prosecutor, and how did she respond? Yeah, this was interesting. I mean, it's a it's a contrast how I think he tried to paint her for the rest of the debate. Is this radical liberal? He actually attacked the disparities in drug offenses, claiming that African Americans were 19 times more likely to be brought up on drug offenses when she was district attorney and And that she increased the disproportionate incarceration of blacks in California's attorney general and tried to tell with the White House has done with the first step back. You know, Harris essentially defended her record. Not specifically, You know, she didn't talk about the specific disparities but said, We need to do what California did nationally. Earlier, she went even further talking about eliminating private prisons and the cash bail system. So I would say it was a pretty full throated defense by Harris Onda kind of surprising attack from a campaign. I know they talked about this before, but it does seem to kind of contrast with the rest of their message about who, Carmela Harris says. Well, I thought it was particularly interesting that she kept stressing that she would not be lectured by the vice president. About her record. She really defended it very, very strongly. It was her first major debate since the ones that took place during the primary campaign. How was she different here? What themes did she hit on? You know, I talked Tio, longtime advisor of Harris, he said this may have been the toughest challenger she's ever faced on the debate stage. I think that she tried to come out it very differently than she did in the primaries. She where she was really on the attack, especially in that, you know, pretty famous debate now from last summer against Joe Biden, where she attacked him on school busing. This was a different Kamala Harris, very measured, still prosecutorial. But I think she was very aware of the fact that this campaign is courting swing voters. Women in particular. I think she's hoping to attract to the campaign and she didn't want to come off as overly hostile. Given who Pence's especially in contrast to term Right now.
Trump campaign attacks Biden-Harris campaign in new ad
"Of California does nothing for Joe Biden. That's an interesting choice now with the The Trump campaign was obviously prepared because they just released this devastating ad. Kamala Harris ran for president by rushing to the radical left, embracing Bernie's plan for socialized medicine, calling for trillions and new taxes, attacking Joe Biden for racist policies. Voters rejected Harris, They smartly spotted funny, but Joe Biden he's not that smart. Biden call's himself in transition is handing over the reins to Carmela while they jointly embrace the radical left slow Joe and phony comma, perfect together Wrong for America. Slow Joe and phony Camilla. Wow, I said earlier in this program when it was announced that we
"Sexism is Boring"
"Hairless arid. Okay. So I'm going to give you one guess for what we're going to lead off with today and it rhymes with Comma. Harris is it Kamla Harris? It's Kamla Harris Yeah perfect rhyme with Harris Okay so Ever. Since Joe Biden announced that he was going to pick all women. To be his running mate, all one, hundred, sixty, six, million, or so of US women were on tenterhooks waiting to see which woman would be the King of women and on Tuesday. Joe Biden announced that he has selected. California Senator Kamala Harris as I guess are is that how vice-presidents work? She's now are king. King. She's a Queen Yeah sure King of Women King King Queen Whatever both terms can be gender-neutral now. So her nomination for veep is boundary breaking. In a lot of cool ways. She is the first black woman and the first woman of Asian descent to be the vice presidential nominee for one of the two major parties in a presidential election, which is super exciting. She was raised by immigrant parents. She was raised largely by her mother raising her and her sister alone. She's also married to Jewish guy she's like a rainbow of the American experience and she was also a former DA and a g in California. Elissa despite the fact that you know there's a lot of celebration yesterday I. Think There's something very dangerous about pretending that are preferred political candidates are flawless and I think there's something disingenuous about hiding disappointment or or some trepidation about our preferred political. So let's Give it to me straight. How did you feel when you learned on Tuesday Joe Biden had selected Comma Harris to be his running mate so Aaron I think that you and I both would agree that there were no bad candidates that we heard in the last couple of days if the reporting was correct and it was largely down to Karen Bass Hysteria fave love her Susan Rice longtime. Pal of mine and Kamala Harris the we could not lose now was Susan my dear pal and was I because of my palace and because I believe she is ready to serve was a little excited. That might be Susan I was I'm not gonNA lie did I after talking to Karen Bass the last time think that I could be team bass. I did. So I'm down we need to. Win. Kamla is great. I mean. But I think that everyone is allowed to have their feelings and they should feel free to have their feelings as long as everyone understands that like fucking time to get up and get on I agree. Well, you know as you know because you got a text for me to this effect yesterday, I was driving through a part of Kansas where parents. Nobody needs to use a cell phone All thing I know I was it was like five hours of just totally dead service and we stopped at a gas station in a place called Goodland Kansas right off I seventy and at that moment, Josh had like a bar of service and he had a text. What do you think about Kamla and it was like oh? Okay. Well, it was. My first feeling was that I was really hoping for a more progressive candidate just because Carmela is a little bit more toward the center than my personal politics are and she is although she's somebody that I find really inspiring and I think she did a great job in a lot of ways as ag California and she's been a great senator. She's been a attack dog basically on the judiciary I was hoping for somebody. Who is a little bit more Bassey in their politics I really like Karen Bass I was a big fan of Tammy Duckworth also, I think that she's got an incredible future ahead of her, she was sort of a dark horse candidate Tammy Duckworth but I would have been just completely over the moon if it had been her but that being said and don't forget Tammy Baldwin I almost forgot tammy Baldwin Baldwin the Tampa. See we couldn't have gone.
Wall Street Reacts to Biden-Harris Ticket
"Today Joe Biden and Kamala Harris made their first appearance together as running mates for the Democratic presidential ticket. CARMELA. As you all know is smart. She's tough. She's experienced. She's a proven fighter for the backbone of this country. The middle class for all those who are struggling to get into the middle class. Connell. Knows how to govern. She knows how to make the hard calls. She's ready to do this job on day one. After the most competitive primary in history. The country received a resounding message that Joe was the person to lead US forward. and. Joe. I'm so proud to stand with you. And I do so mindful. Of all the ROIC ambitious women before me. Who sacrifice determination and resilience makes my presence here today even possible. This is a moment. Of Real consequence for America, Harris's pick is historic and has prompted reactions from around the World Harris's father is Jamaican. Her mother is from India. She's the first black woman and the first woman of South Asian ancestry on a major party presidential ticket in the US Also, Reacting Wall Street. Financial leaders were anxiously awaiting Joe Biden's pick for vice president, our tech money and politics reporter Emily Glaser has been speaking to many of them and joins me now. So Emily you bet on the phone with business leaders all day. How would you characterize their reaction? This leaders are generally really happy that Comma Harris was chosen as Biden's VP pick for a couple of reasons. But basically, they view her as a pragmatic person or realist who while she has been tough on big. Business in the past looks at the nuance issues and takes each thing at a time versus having a blanket approach as you know, the wealthiest bad or big businesses bad. We've seen president trump and his campaign try to paint Senator Harris as a radical left wing Pick Wall Street doesn't seem to see it that way. Definitely not a lot of what I. Heard from folks on the phone text messages emails. But that she's moderate, she sent her even though people don't like using those words that much anymore and that's similar to how they think about Biden and a lot of the reasons why think financial leaders are happy and pleased and cheering on this Harris pick is that she does represent a move away from. The. Far Left Progressive Part of the Democratic Party the part that Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. Are In and so they're relieved that you know things like more financial regulation or really taking back see right now it's all about economic recovery and harassed and Biden have said they think big business is good if the economy recovers and business recovers, that's good for. Everybody. You know it's interesting because after Biden made his announcement yesterday, we heard Praise from people like Senator Warren and Senator Sanders. We know Senator Harris has pledged to be tough on big banks as California Attorney General. She pushed for a big settlement with banks for their role in the foreclosure crisis. What about her record makes Wall Street thinks she's a moderate. It's a great question look like you said, she's touted her tough on banks record. But when you actually break it down, what folks in the financial community are saying is that she's made no secret that there's wrongdoing she will prosecute her background as a prosecutor, but it's also important to keep in mind that her big bank settlement was very nuanced and she did claim a lot of credit for it got brought a lot to. The State of California but we had reported earlier last year that she wasn't always really doing as much of the substance of the negotiations and she was doing a lot that solidified. The Big Bank settlement is helping her record as a politician. So when I spoke with bankers and financial executives last night and today they were saying look she's GonNa take swings at us. We get that it's politics. We're not gonNA take it personally. When there's wrongdoing you know she says she's going to prosecute. We got that but she's not going to have a blanket approach as all banks are bad or all wealthy people are bad. What were some of her other policies on the campaign trail and what do they tell us about her stance toward the financial industry. Healthcare was a really big wine and let's not forget healthcare with the most important issue on the campaign trail. Now, in coronavirus times, it's shifted more to economic recovery. But Harris struggled with this event she failed to really clearly state what her plan was initially, and then once she did she basically said she would have a government run health care plan that would still allow for private insurers an even mentioned that she proposed taxing financial transactions to pay for that. Health care overhaul. So that's something that certainly is out there would really impact the financial sector. Another one that was really big was her so called three. I'm agenda in the beginning of the primary when she was on the trail, she often would attack president trump a lot but she changed strategies partway through an efforts to really appeal more to the every man, every woman and the middle class and mentioned things like gender pay equality breezing teacher salaries and things. Like that that she hoped would get her more voters. She's also being welcomed warmly from the tech world. What can you tell us about that? You know, let's not forget that Kamla Harris has been a politician California in the bay area for a while she was district attorney. She was Attorney General She's been California senator since two thousand sixteen she knows tech executives in Silicon Valley and his raise money from them for her races for a number of years she. Also, lives part time in southern. California with her husband Doug Hav who is an corporate entertainment lawyer. So she's got these deep ties to the media telecom tech and entertainment world folks that have fundraise for her for years. They know her they think she's tough but fair and are very excited and already planning fundraisers now that she's the VP pick, she's also shown that she can raise big bucks from Wall Street donors. How might that help the Biden campaign overall? I think it will help double down on a lot of the money that they need. I saw an invite for recent fundraiser that has the high amount at two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. This is big money we're talking about a lot of the Biden fundraisers in recent weeks have raised millions while Harris and Biden do overlap on a lot of donors whether from the financial tech media entertainment world, a lot of them have known. Harris. For a really long time supported her during the primary and may be willing to give even more money than they already have to the Biden campaign now that she's on the ticket.
Interview With Carmela Wilkins
"Now for this week's interview. I'm talking with Carmelo Wilkins a graphic designer at ab partners in New York City. Let's start the show. Paul Right. So tell us who you are and what you do everyone. My name is Carmel Wilkens and I'm a graphic designer ab partners, which is a digital strategy and creative storytelling agency that is black owned and founded Nice I. Definitely want to get more into that but before we do you know of course, we are recording this now it's in the middle of. Even to say, it's the middle because of the rising cases I feel like we're still somewhere in the beginning but how are you holding up during this time right now? Oh my goodness I would have to say the biggest struggle for existing in the same space in which I work and also live. Or I used to be able to leave my apartment, go to the office and then be able to come back home. You know my retreat my safe haven. But now there's no distinction between two because my desk in my bed are about I don't know a third of an inch away from one another. It something that I've experienced since working from home and having short from home that it's especially the first couple months was really difficult to to have that distinction to create space for myself where I can just rest be at. Men. Also explore my own personal pursuits within my practice. So that's something that's definitely been difficult and also having to support and maintain my family as the breadwinner, my family that live in Rhode Island, and during the beginning of the pandemic, the beginning of quarantine, I had to run around and figure out how to get my sister who studying abroad in Japan. While he was supposed to the umbrella in Japan this past semester from Tokyo back to the US. Yeah. It was. It was really intense. My greatest fear was number forty five was going to just block off all of East Asia including US citizens and that would cause an entirely new problem but are very lucky me and my mom are very lucky to get my sister over here as soon as we could very thankful for that. Haven't even think about like I knew that there were supposed to be some travel restrictions from I think some countries in Europe I hadn't even considered Asia. Although I think now, countries, WANNA keep us out like I. Think the just recently as like Americans y'all stay over there don't come over here. It's a real kind of interesting struggle I. Think a lot of folks are getting into you know I'll tell you I saw a few months ago I was working for a company and. right around like March the folks that were in the New York office they said, okay. We're going to close the office and you have to work from home and then they had to kind of adjust to. Kind of being in this sort of now space where you have to work in live in the same spot and. Work remotely for like over ten years now I, live in Atlanta so like for me wasn't a big huge departure in that like you said, like you're better your desk like a third of an inch away from each other same but. I think what's been the rough is like not having the option to leave like you could leave and go somewhere but it's just not the smart thing to do. So it's like this weird kind of push pull tension between. Wanting to almost want to say rebel and go out. But then there's also like the fear of missing out if you're staying inside being safe. So you're like Oh. What should I do? You know what's the right choice to make? So I understand that that was it been in New York? Has Been, very, interesting as had so many ups and downs are have had my. From all the stays outside of New, York contacting left and right from overseas just wondering if I'm okay. How am I eating how my paying my rent? Like how do I have a roof over my head and it's it's been stressful on to reassure everyone like hey, I'm okay. Responsible saying if I am leaving my apartment, I'm also coordinating with the three other people that live with. We have this rotating schedule of WHO's leaving the House to specifically for groceries not for everything else not like from going for a walk or something but. On the quarantine in New York when we were really confined to art to disarm apartment and we were concerned with if of our roommates were sick or not not knowing like having massive era of uncertainty with what was going on in the households on just how going to sustain ourselves. So we created those really awesome system of how we're going to get groceries who's going to get. It has greater safety net and why like physical safety? Not all's. When it comes to go outside and retrieving groceries and coming back and sharing that space in the kitchen and how to do that A. Mindful away. If we're cautious about, say one of our roommates being sick which actually did happen. One of my roommates were sick for about thirty five days and we were very confused and also scared honestly, and they were definitely as while if they were sick or not. If they had covert but we all got tested I believe last month while three under the four of us got tested last month and to including came back negative and then one of my roommates came back positive. So. What it means because it doesn't really mean anything the tests aren't hundred percent accurate sort kind of like, okay. We live together like we're gonNA continue watching for each other symptoms and see what happens. That is both confusing and scary. Yes exactly. I mean to take the test. I mean, of course to know whether or not you're negative or positive but then because it seems like well, the virus is mutating and you know the symptoms are changing and. I. Hope you're staying safe I mean I I don't really know what advice to kind of given that. Than, just to the vigilant wash your hands so Social distancing. Well, let's talk about a be partners. You mentioned that being a digital strategy firm, it's black owned. How has it been adjusting to working from home if they've been cool everything. AM So. To be working where I work book, we have had moments on a one to one basis with on the team recall said moments as full team to just talk about their current reality that we are all facing. The is impacting us in various ways that we either have chosen to spoke about or having spoken about one another, and this is also my first full time job before I was freelancing. So it's really comforting to know the management team and those are the overseeing everything have employers in mind like our health, our our mental wellbeing, our overall wellbeing in mind, and at any point during the last, I don't know how many months has been I'm like losing track of time at this point. Like. If at any point, we needed to just take a step back from all the craziness going on. It's okay to do so and they completely understand. So that was really really important for me because I really value work life balance I. Think they've done a great job at the beginning of the quarantine they're just like, Hey, folks. So we want everyone to be really comfortable and adjust themselves to work from. Home. Like here's some extra cash like on us to really make your `rumour habitable for working and living, and I was really I was really kind. They didn't have to do that but but they did and I really appreciate it out. So did everyone else
An insight into Kamala Harris, a potential VP for Biden
"I am Jonathan Kaye. Part AND WELCOME TO CAPE UP. Long before people started swooning over Congressman. Val demings of Florida as a possible vice president. Joe Biden folks. We're talking about senator. Kamla Harris California back in January twenty nineteen few weeks before Harris announced her own since disbanded presidential campaign. I sat with her in front of a live audience at George Washington University for the kickoff tour. For her the truth we hold because Harris's book is a memoir. Our conversation was heavy on stories about parents upbringing and her career. There's no better way to get to know this possible vice president than listening right now. Senator Harris thank you very much for for being here for choosing Washington to be the kickoff of your book tour and or actually to be correct books tour and as we see the truths we hold an American journey and then also superheroes are everywhere. I'm going to focus on the truths we hold k. And I'm going to focus on something that happens before even page one and I want to clear it up. Okay for anyone who might have done this or still doing this. Despite hearing it said correctly the first time pronounce your name Carmela so just think of like the punctuation Mark Comma and that Adalah and there you got and so then what does communism mean then. So it's a very traditional classic Indian name and it derives from Sanskrit and it's it means the lotus flower and so it's very prevalent and a lot of Asian cultures and the idea the symbolism. Is that the Lotus flowers sits on water but it never really gets wet. The water beats off of it and so the idea being that one can be in the midst of chaos or be in the midst of something happening and and be there and should be there and it doesn't necessarily need to penetrate you but one should be there and equally important Its roots are in the mud meaning. It is grounded and and one must always know where they come from and can still be this thing now. I need you to pronounce another name for me for the life of me. I just I couldn't do it. And that is the name of your mother Shammala. So the why is silent Shama Sharmila what was really Shamlan? Go Gopala tell us about your mom. Caller Mommy Mommy. We always called her. Mommy I am not embarrassed to say she is mommy and She is in many ways. The reason I wrote the book my sister my is here My Mother's one of her best friends from college is here. Lenore POMERANZ I write about in the book and my mother was a force of nature. A drill force of nature. She is someone who all five feet of her. If you met her after you walked away you would have thought she was seven Tom. My mother was a truth teller. She spoke the truth. She was probably the smartest toughest and most loving person I've ever known. She raised her daughters with a belief that we could do and be anything. She taught us that. Don't let people tell you who you are and you tell them who you are. She was a scientist. Breast cancer researcher should goals in her life to end breast cancer and raise her two daughters and she would take us to the lab with her at go after school on the weekends and being around scientists one of the things that I realize now early in my life I learned was that one should see what can be unburdened by what has been because that is science is about. It's the pursuit of those things that will improve the condition of life. That will solve problems. That will make things better. And that's why I'm naturally attracted to also anything that is about innovation understanding that innovation. We do it not because we're bored with things the way they've been but because we should always be in pursuit of being more efficient more effective more relevant and and that's what she is and was your father. Donald Harris also an immigrant born born in Jamaica. Yeah an economics professor at Stanford. And let's David. Mind comes from some BRAINIAC parents. Your mom got her. He H D. The year you were born does put that out there so now your dad comes to the United States from Jamaica. Yeah my father was equally brilliant. And is he was a national scholar and Jamaica. He earned his way and up in out and came to the United States into Berkeley to study economics and My parents met when they were active in the civil rights movement. And it's an interesting story because as you know my mother graduated college when she was nineteen and did and so she so she said to my grandfather who was one of the freedom fighters in India for India's independence and my mother was the eldest of four children. She was the oldest at at a girl obviously and she said to my grandparents. She wanted to study science and she wanted to go to what was considered to be one of the best schools and that was UC Berkeley and my grandparents looked at her and said okay. We will put you on a plane and you can go to a place. You've never been at nineteen years old. This was in nineteen fifty nine. So this young this girl. This young woman got on a plane encouraged by her parents to go and pursue her dream now. The back story is also that it was fully expected she would get that degree and go back and have a good arranged marriage but of course my mother having been raised and being who she was just naturally she when she got to Berkeley was immediately attracted to the civil rights movement. Why do you defend? That's where she met. My father was and but I want to say she met my father and decided to have a love marriage and a marriage based on love which I believe is the ultimate act of optimism. The the question that I interrupted. You're you're Satan with. Why do you think she was so attracted to the civil rights movement she was raised growing up? Would go back to India like every other year and And so I know the family from that that that raised her because they helped raise us and it was always about fighting for independence was about finding justice. It was about fighting to make sure that all people had a say in their future in their government an equal say and that was that was in her blood and of course that's what the civil rights movement was about and the free speech movement and and there are some funny stories. I was just sharing with something backstage. You know so I witness I right about in the book you know from my strollers. I view and there's a a funny family story about how some mothers marching with the extended family. I talk about like aunt Mary and Uncle Freddie and the book and she would tell the story about. How DO THEY MARTIN? And this is back when strollers didn't really have armrest seatbelts. Martin Away and you know shouting and and all of that and then I think Mongol Freddie a look down in the stroller which was empty followed up. My mother tells funny story like one day. She was fussing and and you know so much cuter when she would tell the story but she'd say so then she would look down at me and come on. What do you want? What do you want and I look back up in a said fleet on so glad that story. I wanted to hear you safe. We how I wanted to talk about your your father economics professor Stanford they meet atmospherically. Had you and my And you love going to the park and your mom would correct me. If I'm wrong would put limits on you in terms of how far you go. Whatever and your dad would say to you. Run RUN COM run. That's right he would say. Do not be afraid. Let her go let her go. Let her run. You run as fast as you. Can you run as far as you want and I believe that his whole purpose was to say. Do not be afraid and be
