Chris Matthews retires from MSNBC after string of recent controversies

"Chris Matthews who has been at MSNBC and before that C. N. B. C. in within the NBC family for well over two decades has hosted hardball since nineteen ninety seven came on the air last night and announced he was done retiring he was the announcement cut thirty one let me start with my headline tonight I'm retiring this is the last hardball on MSNBC and obviously there's a lack of interest in politics you can tell I've loved every minute of my twenty years as host of hardball every morning I read the papers I'm going how to get to work not many people had this privilege I love working with my producers and discussions we have over how to report the news I love having this connects with you the good people who watch learn who you are thank you to you on the sidewalk grid waiting in an airport and say hello you're like me I heard from your kids and grandchildren say my dad loves or my grandmother ledger my husband watched until the end of the conversation MSNBC I decided tonight will be my last hardball so let me tell you why the younger generations out there ready to take the reins we see them in politics and the media in funding for the causes they are proving the workplace we're talking here about better standards that we grew up with fair standards a lot of it has to do with how we talk to each other compliments on a woman's appearance that some men including me one of one sitting correctly thought were okay we're never okay not Dan is certainly not today and for making such comments in the past I'm sorry so there was a piece that came out last week of a woman who said that she was harassed or made uncomfortable by sexist comments in the past from Chris Matthews that probably turned up the heat on this situation keep in mind that Matthews had been forced to apologise for a comparison he made involving Bernie Sanders and Hitler back in the Nevada caucuses when they were covering that and he also had an exchange with Elizabeth Warren that was considered by a lot of their viewers to be sexist so there is this storm brewing get said some things on there that had rankled folks there's clearly stuff going on behind the scenes and it sounds like he was being forced out over some of these allegations how new or fresh the allegations are what specifically they are we don't have that full picture but he's framing at in this segment like he made the decision to retire it kind of sounds like it might have been a coerced retirement by the sounds of it but here's his big fat well income thirty two I'm very proud of the work I've done here long before I went on television I worked for years in politics was a newspaper columnist and author I'm working on another book on continue to write and talk about politics and Cheryl and my producers and crew here in Washington and New York and my M. S. N. B. C. Collings they will continue to produce great journalism in the years ahead and for those of you have gotten in the habit of watching hardball every night I hope you're going to miss because I'm gonna miss you but remember Humphrey Bogart in casa Blanka boys have hardball so let's not say goodbye but so we meet again you know I was wondering where they may be going to shuffle him too a senior contributor or an analyst or something like that sounds like he's out right that's the understanding and look I washed hard ball a little bit when I was younger they're a competitor not even sure what time is on a young five o'clock six o'clock eastern he's on a seven shows up against Martha yeah they've they've bounced around the time a little bit but he's up against Martha I'm usually if I'm watching cable news I'm watching the story his politics don't align with mine I think he's more of an old school Liberal Democrat then one of the new hardcore left wing folks that definitely have a significant voice at that now working within that audience and I have no idea of no extra info behind the scenes aside from some texting as I mentioned back and forth the some NBC folks that I know who seemed very surprised there was some contrition and some allusions two comments that were made I just wonder is that really the whole story it seemed very abrupt so abrupt in fact this was the most bizarre part of it Matthews did his opening segment where does a monologue it's let me start and then at the end of the show he doesn't let me finish monologue he did the let me start open thank you left that was over and they have to fill the rest of the hour they had Steve Kornacki who sort of there are political data winners young guy roughly my age looking absolutely stunned sitting there kind of forced to take over the show at that point and I don't understand how this worked out logistically behind the scenes did he not know what was coming they were gonna give Matthews the final full hour of hard ball it was just all very odd here's Kornacki taking over and seeming a bit bewildered and gut punching cut thirty three that was a lot to take in just now I'm sure and I'm sure you're still absorbing that and and I am too Chris Matthews is a giant he's a legend it's been an honor for me to work with him to sit in here on occasion and I know how much you meant to him and I know my how much he made to you and I think you're gonna miss him and I know I'm going to and then he says well we've got a finish this hour so we're gonna take a break no bells and whistles and we'll be right back I mean it's just sort of I've never seen anything like that and look I am empathetic here to Steve Kornacki I remember when Shep Smith at the very end of his final show said Hey I'm don this is my last show here at fox news it's been real we were watching it on the top of the hour here in this studio that I came on in the very next segment at four oh five eastern it was reacting in real time but I wasn't nearly as close to shop at all as Steve Kornacki is to Chris Matthews I know shop a little bit professionally we hung out once or twice outside of work but that was it it's clear that Kornacki was a little bit shaken and at the end of the hour he did another farewell and tribute to Matthews where he got actually choked up it was obvious that he was emotional about what happened how it went down and it does seem like a kind of dropped out of the blue so a very significant shakeup at

"chris matthews" Discussed on Slate's The Gist

"Not a game you're playing. Listen we're not allowed to have food stamps because your sensibility tells us that thirty five years ago. You Got Diabolic Smile. And I know you think you're winning but everybody who's black or white knows exact. So that was a case where Matthews skewered the deserving and he stayed in the good graces of his critics it was complimented for that rightly so when he seems to take Michael Bloomberg side over Elizabeth. Warren's in what is to be totally accurate an unknowable disagreement about a statement made allegedly thirty years ago. Some people want his head. Obviously it's not that simple. That's why I provided the context of documenting some of the allegations and admissions of harassment. That said some of the bill of particulars against Matthews seem a little out of place. Here was the New York Times right up his firing or his ouster. The Matthew style was increasingly out of step with the times in two thousand seventeen. Msnbc acknowledged that the anchor had been reprimanded in one thousand nine thousand nine after making inappropriate remarks to a female colleague prompting a settlement in two thousand eight. He was quoted in a magazine profile declaring the actress. Carrie Washington quote a total knockout. That is a combination of the serious. And the Anodyne Margaret Sullivan media columnist for the Washington. Post wrote what are the most prominent and well paid hosts in the Cable News? Game didn't listen didn't do his homework and treated politics as a game in which noisy confrontation was a necessity. Yes but that second part noisy confrontational a game. That is exactly what made the first part so very well paid. What made that possible. Chris Matthews had excellent ratings. He grew the audience. You can even argue that politics as a game. That way of looking at it has its place like Steve Kornacki. So movingly said in his send off of Matthew's he and I and maybe you are in fact interested in political content. And it's not because it's unexciting and it's not because it needs to be a slog. I have never appeared on the Chris. Matthews show have appeared on many many other. Msnbc shows dozens of others over the years. I think Matthews rat-a-tat style often obscured deeper contemplation but it also forced respondents to be on their games and steered them towards concision. So when I read the New Republic's headline Chris Matthews. Was everything wrong with Cable News Easy? They're young WHOA Kratz in house. Magazine of N Plus One everything. That was wrong with Cable News. Have you have you checked out? This network called Fox. It's like two clicks over from MSNBC depending on your cable provider. They get twice the viewers of Chris Matthews with ten times. The Bullshit as Chris Matthews Leaves. He takes something with him. Part of what he takes is his attitude out of step with the Times admittedly and he did and said things that caused women legitimate discomfort despite being repeatedly told not to do so so now that he's gone some of that has gone too good but some of the other things that are gone with him. Maybe we should think about my point is not to excuse rehabilitate or defend a career which earned him fame influence and millions of dollars which only want to point out that Chris Matthews had his moments some moments of sparkle to go along with the well picked over moments of cringe. And that's it for today's show. The Gist is produced by Priscilla Lobby. She's the associate producer. She prefers wine banks wine caves. Remember that one cave so two months one week ago.

Elizabeth Warren Challenges Michael Bloomberg on 'Kill It' Abortion Comment

"We crossed the top of the hour. We continue our coverage of tonight's democratic debate from Charleston South Carolina as we said in the last hour. One of the biggest moments came early on Elizabeth Warren directed at Michael Bloomberg. When I was twenty one years old I got my first job as a special education teacher. I love that job and by the end of the first year. I was visibly pregnant. The principal wished me luck and gave my job to someone else so I packed stuff and I went home. At least I didn't have a boss who said to me. Kill it the way that Mayor Bloomberg never led said to one of them on employees. I never said that they were the record of truism teacher in New York City. She would never have had that problem. We treated our teachers. The right way mayor Bloomberg went on with a longer explanation of what was part of a legal case standing by with Chris Matthews in the Spin Room Senator Elizabeth Warren. Thank you so much Brian. Do you believe that? The former mayor of New York said that to a pregnant employee. Well pregnant employee said that he did. Why shouldn't I believe her? You know I'm just really tired of this world. This one is personal for me. It really is but you aim. Hi pregnancy discrimination is real and we have gone on and on and on where people say. Oh I can't really believe the woman really why not Mayor Bloomberg has nondisclosure agreements. For who knows how many women and it's not just the one the whole point is how can you actually trust someone who will not just say look? I'm going to wave on nondisclosure on sexual harassment and discrimination. Anybody who has a story to tell can come with. Everybody deserves incredible response when they make a charge like that. My question about him. You believe he's lying. I believe the woman you believe. Which was he's not telling the truth and why we live because just to protect themselves. Yeah and why would she? If that's the question why breaking as the Gospel to make sure you're clear about this. You're confident of your accusation. But all I know is what she said what he said and I've been on her end of in the sense of discrimination based on pregnancy. It happens all across this country and men all across this country. Oh my gosh he never would have said. Yeah really okay. Let's talk about redlining that we're talking about an audience down here. A heavily African American Uh constituency down here and just put. These are tough charges. What is it that he did red lining that you believe is bad? Have you seen the video? And which he describes that the housing crisis see there had been redlining and then the government caught involved and forced all of these banks to lend money to poor people and then hit. That's how he describes the housing crisis. That's blaming African Americans and Latinos who were discriminated against on housing for decades. The very act that created a black white wealth gap that persists until this day. He blames that on the people who were victimized by you. Don't here's the thing it's redlining and what happened afterwards. You know after nine hundred and sixty five when redlining was finally made illegal. We just kind of go to neutral laws. African Americans start buying homes at higher rates. And then what happens? The giant banks on Wall Street target African American Communities Target Latino communities for the worst of the worst mortgages stripping whatever wealth had been those homes back away from them of course then took it nationwide and crash. The entice fits complete with your career. I don't I don't doubt a bit of what you've been saying but strategically. Why did you decide to go after Bloomberg tonight and not Bernie Sanders? Who is really rowing? Up The score. Right down this fight so I gotTa Tell You. I think is is the riskiest candidates standing on that stage. He is risky because he's already spent a half a billion dollars nearly as that what he's crowding in on at this point and because he thinks he can buy this election and he puts out on TV with all his millions and millions and millions of dollars this image of Michael Bloomberg that just doesn't fit reality Bernie Sanders. I don't know but I think that he would be view. Worst nominee for the Democrats and he is the worst nominee because he cannot be trusted by the base of the Democratic Party. Let's shift the attention to Bernie Sanders. Who is doing very well right now. You may wind down. And you may wind down here Let me ask you about your your. Very strong statement about him was that you can do a better job as that's that gets to executive ability it gets to relations with other political figures gets to effectiveness. And where do you? Where do you found that? What's your basis for saying it's experience notice your ability as a as a legislator compared to him give me some anecdotal evidence where you are better better president potentially the he is so Bernie and I both wanted to rein in Wall Street of the financial crash of two thousand and eight gave both of us a chance to do that but I was. The one who did the hard work fought with wall. Street fought with the banks built the coalitions and actually one and got the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau passed into law. That's a great accomplishment. Let me ask you giving star where he had to fight against other only have a couple of minutes show host out. I worked on the hill longtime and I watched what could get done. What could I watch the filibuster? Sixty vote requirement every serious legislative initiative. You need sixty votes or at least to the US reconciliation. Which deals with fiscal totals? And you can use that sometimes to just operate with a majority now. Everybody has ideas. You've got much more modest ideas than Bernie in terms of quick this and universality and all that other things how do you get anything through Congress that so fifty fifty divided since the end of fifty fifty roughly one side of the other? You know it's GonNa end up point about I'm willing Mitch. Mcconnell does what he did to Barack Obama them. I'm willing to roll back the filibuster. How many votes does that take the fifty one? Or fifty it can use the nuclear option. Guesswork at look part of it is it. Depends on what Mitch McConnell if he stays in blocking position. But here's the assure agreed to do this. Here's the majority leader's. The party is majority leader. I haven't asked it is. I have been out building the foundation for this for over a year building allies. Because that's how you get things on if we want a president. Who gets things done to look? After the last debate I was a quarter of a million people came to Elizabeth Warren Dot Com. And said I want to join this? I want to be part of this fight. I think that's where we are again tonight. I hope it does go done. You got to think through. How do you have a roll-call Fifty Democrats for maybe a couple of Republicans who will get rid of the filibuster? Do you know what that can happen. So it doesn't happen if you don't get out there and build it when I started fighting for the Consumer Financial Protecion Bureau's do you know what the odds were. They were like ninety nine to one. Nobody thought we could do this. We not only were up against every republic show. We were up against half the Democrats but you stay after eight. You reel it in US pressure from the outside to build the coalition. Sometimes you have to make a compromise. Stark legislation passed with only a fifty fifty situation. What I think because this is an issue. Here's took Ted Kennedy and sixty fifty nine other. Democrats to get sea. It took sixty. And you'RE GONNA burn. You're talking about big changes that you would get in a fifty fifty. Is that health and country. Look what country is where it is progressive or can I have one chance to make transformative change. And we better do it. We better be effective on this. And here's the thing. We cancel that student loan debt. There's no going back. We make that investment in universal childcare. There's no going back. We make that investment in housing. There's no going back that's what we need to do. Make the transformative change. Get it through. And then we're going to hang onto it because we his transformative we will change this country. That's why I'm in the Spike Chris. I can tell thank you very much and everybody knows you mean it. Thank you very much Elizabeth Warren. Us Senator from Massachusetts back

"Back to the room and Democratic presidential candidate. Sorry Chris we only do Cuban Revolution Talk on Casey Hunt. Show on the weekend here. Just hold that for another time. There is a sense like a lot of guys of his generation. David and I'm stealing a little bit here from a tweet from connor row southern where you've been told you were the good liberal right. Yeah you've been told that in all of a sudden the world changes the part. The center of gravity of the party moves to the left. And all of a sudden. You're not that Guy Anymore and you act out right. We've seen. This happened a hundred times in American life into Chris. Matthews is he is the he is the archetypal. I used to be a liberal guy. On Cable News Yeah. I think that I think that's right. I think that it's not just that you're the good liberal but it's also being told you were right over and over again for a couple of decades You know it's not justice specifically the Cold War centrist. But the post Cold War centrists too. I mean anyone that that you know happily identified as a centrist which is a fine thing to be but a lot of the a lot of those A lot of the people who fall in that category and have major podiums in in the media landscape today. Who WERE OVER? A CERTAIN AGE ARE Just overwhelmed by this sort of negative at this point right. I mean this I mean it's it's you don't have to look much farther than you know. I don't know I mean the front pages of or any OP. Ed Page to see people who seem like disaffected by the fact that everything that rolls off. The tongue isn't true anymore or isn't isn't isn't celebrated his genius anymore and You know it's it's tough for them. But it's the landscape has changed and comparing people to Nazis less. It needs to be said comparing people to Nazis is not the The appropriate way forward thing. I'm glad you said age because that brings us the number three on my list. Chris Matthews Act as a product of the demographics of Cable News. Oh yeah much like. Newspapers Cable News is built to cater to an audience of mostly old people men so Chris Matthews Ranting about the Nazis or Cuba or tip. O'neill that's not intended for you and me. That's for GRANDPA that that that that's who watches a shows right so he he Chris Matthews is like the young buck. You know that he's the he's the that you know. Even even the young people on on Cable News Bar Line for Michael Kinsley. An old person's idea of a young person for the most part that that that enriches or surrounds or even inspires the Chris Matthews on TV number four. David don't underestimate help. Everything Chris Matthews does can be explained by career anxiety. But yeah there's a great Markevic piece New York Times magazine from two thousand eight that I tweeted over the weekend and win. Liebich wrote about Matthew's he was on edge because he was seen as a lesser light to Obermann to Tim. Russert even David Gregory back number that time. Msnbc will fast forward to now. He's been outflanked careerwise by Brian Williams. Rachel maddow Chris Hayes. The list could go on and on and you know when I see Matthews going there. I see a guy who's like what's my role here. You know what's what's my corner on. Msnbc I know I'll I'm GONNA lean into this role even more than I already was tempted to as interesting. I mean the the Chris Matthews Keith. Olbermann days Were interesting for any number of reasons but they are I. I have vivid memories of them sort of sitting side by side on these election nights and it was sort of Olbermann. We just talked about this. Really Obermann sort of in the director's chair. You Know Berman was the was the play by play guy but they Chris Matthews next to him. It's sort of like when Terry Bradshaw. Kinda got the New Fox contract and got to start doing like the like the highlight packages every once in a while. They think they put Chris Matthews there and didn't tell him that he was in the number two chair. They just let them believe he was in the number one chair because he was sitting right in the middle but they just sort of like secretly tipped the cameras towards Keith Olbermann. You know when when when Matthew paying attention and then you're right now I mean he's he's been. I mean he's been laughed and I don't know that that's Durrani like fault of his own. But you know now now they just bring him on for these segments you know. I mean he's not he's not he's not always up front and center and frankly it's it's sort of amazing to watch. Rachel Maddow Chris Hayes who are certainly as political as he is if not more but at the C. B. They're able to kind of call. These events down the middle in a way that Chris Matthews finds himself incapable of doing well. They talk about politics in a different way right. They talk about politics in this. Kind of is recline wonky. You know it's about the bigger values it's about it's about things bigger than. Who's up and WHO's down way that we were award now And Chris Matthews talks about it in the old way and proudly so. I think you know he's about You know again. He's about telling stories about tip O'Neill cutting deals and all the stuff like that. That that's his way of thinking. Yeah and he just seems so different acids and I don't get I don't I don't want to exonerate him too much. He's somebody WHO's out here actually having opinions about things where you see Matt Allen Hazen all these people pretty much being you know straining to be as open as they can to all the candidates right. They're not they may criticize they. May they may say well. This isn't working. That's not working. Whatever but he is trying to stake out ideological territory. Msnbc which a lot of people in that network art and that's interesting too there was an interview on MSNBC with a non greed herodotus opposite his name right News on Joy Reid talking about how Bernie Sanders is. Victories required. Everyone to open their minds. Think about politics differently. Then he gets around to. Msnbc's own pundits and what.

Kennedy building what is there in their mind that we look for reasons to exonerate the Democrats but we look for reasons to implicate the Republicans what is what I think a lot of a bill has to do with what I call the permanent political class I mean Joe Biden is is you know he's older now but he's basically been a permanent fixture in Washington for forty years a guy like Donald Trump is going to calm I don't don trump's gonna stay in Washington DC when he leaves the White House he's gonna leave so there's a club atmosphere is by bipartisan it's the permanent political class and the reason that you don't have some Republicans warning to investigate Joe Biden is either their family is involved in some level of similar activity order hoping to at some point so this kind of the unwritten rule that we don't go after a prominent political figures and that's the reason we need to be shouting this from the rooftops we need to exposing it because here's the thing voters care about this stuff it's the reason I'm convinced that trump won in twenty sixteen and even though I think Bernie's ideas are are completely wrong for the country what's fueling his candidacy is the same anger at the corrupt establishment in Washington DC if if something universal on both sides of the aisle let's talk about your work on Bernie Sanders until your research about the hundreds of tens of millions of dollars to a mysterious company linked to his wife many thought he was a socialist who wants a revolution let's face it is a communist he wants the by violent means overthrow the United States government which is the definition of a revolution he wants fundamental change he wants the U. S. government to seize the assets of hospitals oil companies pharmaceuticals and so one would think that a guy like that is not really concerned about money he's a Ben and Jerry kind of a guy but in reality what did you find about how Bernie Sanders monetize socialism for his benefit but not ours you mentioned you know that that that sort of this is is a you know communist leanings I mean it's like the old Brezhnev stays in the Soviet Union you had them talking about world while pollution in the proletariat but they all had five deals in corrupt deals live like kings and Bernice case you know he's worth millions of dollars some of that came from writing books he's actually written more books and he's actually introduced pieces of legislation that if passed but a lot of people don't realize it more than half a million dollars of his own campaign funds have gone to buying his own book but the bigger the bigger issue bill is this this this dirty little secret about washing call media buying and and Bernie Sanders's latched on to this yeah if you were running for the Senate in the state of Ohio and you said Peter I want you to do my media buys by my TV and radio I get a commission of C. off of that it could be anywhere from ten to fifteen percent goes to the media buyer in the beauty of it is that doesn't show up anywhere in Federal Election Commission records you don't know who the media buyers well here's what Bernie did she saw this and what did he do when he started running for Congress left of the Senate he put his wife in charge of the media by which means she's got the commission even though she had no background in advertising and media buying any of this stuff so we know that she and Bernie we received hundreds of thousands of dollars by doing that and the great mystery comes to the twenty sixteen election will Bernice dropped eighty three million dollars on media buys so that means the commission somewhere between eight million and twelve million dollars where did it go well it went through a company called old town media old town media did not have a website did not have other clients it was registered to a home in the coldest sack in suburban Virginia all in the two owners of old town media were long time friends of James Sanders yeah he was after she heard Jane was asked about this by a progressive reporter in twenty sixteen what do you know about old town media do you have any connection to old town media and are you involved in this in any way and according to the professor reporter Jane Sanders just hung up the phone room of what happened to the twelve million dollars who got the media commission on that we just don't know what it's million ends is a little bit of money he monetizes the campaign so those are contribute to thirty six dollars each to the to the Sanders campaign have got to understand that goes into a pot and out of the pot comes all the media buys and that's how the Sanders family gets paid yeah and then the other thing that I think people need to know is that you know Bernie Sanders has been very clear cut in people calling the left kind of you Mister John the Baptist progressive movement why he's out of eating locusts and honey well you know he's worth millions of dollars he actually has an investment portfolio and when you look at his investment portfolio I hate to break this to you bill I know this is going to shock you he's not invested in like renewable energy companies he's not invested in you know some organic farm I mean he's invested in fortune five hundred stock that's where his investment portfolio is it's not a socially responsible investment fund that's where his investments are in when you set up you know we bought his third home the vacation home they set it up in the trust precisely to avoid paying some taxes so you know Bernie Sanders is not John the Baptist use is is more like a qualified king Herod at least in the way that is that he handles his investments in his own money let's move on to Lizabeth Warren she is picturing yourself as a every woman she knows exactly how you live your life she spent time a course in Oklahoma and then and she monetized her so called Indian heritage and I probably have more Indian blood to me than she does she use all along but you have great reporting on how she a really bad millions of dollars from corporations even though she rants and raves against corporate America how to Elizabeth Warren maker money our records network is around twelve million dollars they pay well at Harvard Law School they don't pay that well so the question becomes how did you make that money and so we re traced this we went through and found that in the mid nineteen nineties Elizabeth one was hired by the U. S. Congress and paid by us the taxpayers to help Congress to rewrite some of the bankruptcy laws okay she's a lawyer that makes sense they hire her they tend to do this whole ideas are incorporated into the bankruptcy code then what does she do bill she goes to large corporations Dow chemical and others and says you hire me as a consultant and I will help you navigate around the law I actually wrote genius is very corrupt moves and other people in Washington is done have done this she's denounced other people that have done this but she ended up working for Dow chemical Armstrong world wide a whole host of large corporations who are facing class action lawsuit towards and she was helping them minimize their exposure that's obvious a legitimate thing to do but the fact that she says I've been fighting for the little guy my entire life is simply not true she made millions of dollars helping the big guy large corporations slip out of responsibilities as it related to people who were damaged by the products those companies have produced you don't fall a few nights ago I'm watching Chris Matthews every now and then is a lucid moment and he was ranting and raving about socialism the evil socialism is because all over the world any referenced Ohio senator Sherrod brown that Sherrod brown is the kind of person that we need there because he looks after the little guys a union guy so Sherrod brown is being promoted by the mainstream media as kind of Bernie Sanders light and you've investigated were weren't shared brown gets his money from where is it that's very interesting shirt brown he always been in public life since you graduate from college he ran for the state legislature he listed himself he was still a senior at Yale when he ran for office he listed himself bill as a farmer under our occupation I don't know what kind of form he

The state of play in New Hampshire and beyond

"Democrats rather have a catastrophic week they began on Monday when the democratic Iowa caucuses turned into a display of shocking incompetence Democrats unlock I stay were unable to tell America who won and who came in second the only certainty was about who is the real loser that was Joe Biden who finished fourth now polls show Bernie Sanders with a comfortable lead in New Hampshire the next day tomorrow coming up next week I am sure it means that Democrats are beginning to panic Bernie Sanders is believed by many of them to be electable party veterans all used to liberal and center left candidates are now beginning to speak out against the socialist Democrat Bernie Sanders by Tuesday evening some Iowa numbers at chuckled and there was a leader but no winner Biden I repeat puts forth with impeachment still technically undecided on Tuesday night Donald Trump entered the house chamber to give his state of the union address the state of our union is stronger than ever before impeachment never came up but what the president did say appealed to the majority of Americans a healthy majority of Americans of all much of what he said will be remembered by those who pay close attention it was Nancy Pelosi who stole the show with a petulant act following trump's words of god bless you and god bless America thank you very much hearing those words a speaker of the house rose tore up the signed print a copy of the speech the president just delivered as she stood out of my sight mine the president but for all of America to see she did it for all the world to see that it was not a good look for the leader of the Democratic Party the morning after the speech I discuss not Nancy moment and much more with Georgia senator David Perdue senator I thought it was historic state of the union speech last night I thought it was historic tantrum by a petulant speaker pelo three what did you think about last night but Dr yeah I agree with you you're a student of history but I I T. I think last night was a historic speech it built on the the successes of his first three years in late at a farm plan for a vision for America the last five minutes that speech I think we're really his story but the Democrats such as close to the Democrats showed exactly why they should be in charge I mean how Petula can you be to not stand up for a child and in grammar school was gonna get a choice to go to school and how about the Tuskegee American hero they would even stand for him it was really insulting for America it was astonishing in many respects the touching Mrs you it does not like long speeches she'd never watched either George W. bush a president Obama but she's military kid so she came in to stand up for the general and for the for military families and for the widow and the son of the lost soldier I could not believe I actually cannot believe senator produ the Nancy Pelosi tore up a speech that honor to Tuskegee airmen and all those other heroes well it just shows their their don't care about the future American I want power and we see it and everything this purely partisan political process I just ran in this impeachment process speech tons about that they don't want the truth they just want power and Schumer talk about it all the time you talk about on your show I mean what they want to do with America is taken and regressed back to what has been proven to fail around the world of the last century really I got to play for you a few quotes about what was said last night this is Chris Matthews on MSNBC Democrat cut forty three Chris Matthews I think he wore I came from the like the speech tonight I think regular people well not with us see the Smalls the corny this still see it but don't like it because it's all good stuff whatever purpose it had and I look at something about I watched closely because I really respect like most Mister I was very the way she held me to win the stand when to apply it was almost a normal almost entirely the tributes to people to individual people she always felt that was the right thing to do especially the one quite out I'm right there one why don't this is van Jones on CNN another hard left person cut number forty four and and the thing about it is and I think that we we got to wake up folks do the whole bubble thing that goes on with the will he said **** nations there for all but you will get him forever that ain't necessarily so and I think what you're gonna see him do is say I you like my rhetoric the look at my results look at my record to black people now this is Jake tapper on CNN cut forty five okay we've never really seen a scholarship given which is what the president did with the with the young girl from Philadelphia we've seen the type of thing where a war hero like the Tuskegee airmen brigadier general McGee we seen that honored and it was a lovely moment to have a one hundred year old does he here's Chris Cuomo on CNN four wheeling poignant moments that came I don't know if you saw them but you should go online and look and I'm gonna talk to you about it more later on the president in that speech tonight celebrated with this country is about from one set of moments are finally Claire McCaskill on your former colleague senator produ on MSNBC cut number fifty of course the flow state tearing up the street I can argue that that maybe wasn't the best idea it you know I think America once everyone to get along and get things done but what you know when I can play a montage of left left left left left and they're all applauding the president you know we had a home run senator produ I'm shocked I mean I really am but what he did was historic I say it again I mean he did mention impeachment once he rose above that he showed great disappoint he showed vision for America but here's the difference American people we built America because everybody out there in the real world view like you and others know how to get results the political partisanship here is not focused on results and president trump is trying to break through that that's why I think he's going to do extremely well this fall at Lana is the home of some great talk radio Neal Bortz had many disagreements over the years but he's a friend we visited with President Bush in the oval one time is phone went off one of the funniest moments I've ever seen a withering look from the president at Neil Sean Hannity had a lot of great years in Atlanta you know Rush Limbaugh personally I say he built the mall in which the rest of us live in I hope you stood in a plot in one rush got that last night I couldn't see last night but it was moving it was emotional every family in America that struggles with cancer saluted him what did you think of that moment well I had dinner with him a few weeks ago in Florida and I was in what would this be to that was a total surprise last night to me I think that homeowners a great American hero he did go out first and blaze a trail to tell the truth and that's what you and many others are doing now and that's what's gonna win today just look at the numbers of conservative talk radio out there and their numbers are going up in the liberal left numbers are going down so I mean I think the middle part of America is leading and showing how California New York Illinois have totally failed their governance and now they want to export that to the federal government I think most people in America see what trump is doing and they certainly recognizes result this present you said on the top he's done more for the Arab American community and in America any other president since Lincoln I think Britt slough editor of the National Review discuss the state of the union while on Chicago's morning answer with Salem stand problem Amy Jacobson that will settle somewhere then people are safe and she's the woman of the hour and she just couldn't find any truth than from say the union address that's why if you threw a tantrum yeah well the whole thing about Nancy Pelosi she's popular supposedly this calm cool calculating presence to his genius is getting under trump skin and she showed her deep irritation last night does incredibly test headed yesterday I think trump said of shook her hand at the beginning I like grace notes but they're ripping up the the speech yeah he should have known this moment was gonna come when she started to impeach shop in the first place that eventually he'd be acquitted or be near quit all and he'd be this majestic setting and she'd have to sit by back there like a prop and behave herself and she and she couldn't handle it they were routine they were rooting against America I mean when they talked about alone unemployment numbers for African Americans and minorities why not stand up and clap for that because they they can't abide anything this president says even when it's things that normally everyone would welcome and that's one thing I think it's it's really notable about the speech the ratio of outrage it caused among the opposition you know on Twitter on cable TV and in the hall and the way most people receive it I think it's a vast you know because I'm sitting there is conservative once the limit limit government event basketball on those sort of things there's almost nothing for me is a very center of speech right planting trees going to Mars you know the research to support extremely premature babies and that was a really moving moment I'm among many from the gallery and so most people that the second strike in this on reasonable as striking as entirely reasonable or welcome so they can deal why did the speaker house can happen rip up the speech this is what we have one listener described trump this way after the St unit rasta Nancy pollicis little snack and I thought this was pretty good he he's like human so the impact the fall he he brings out in people who they truly are in sort of a remarkable way they can't even help themselves and as you're describing Nancy Pelosi this cool calm collected this passionate you know Jeff feel general and but then he throws a temper tantrum and then she doubles down on explaining the temper tantrum in a way that portrayed her as venal and petty in about her where you just said the president give a speech about you in this country and its future and that's not a pretty good contra that's not a very good contrast for the Democrats yeah and it just when when people try and think they're reacting to trump intro and a champion way

Reactions to Trump's impeachment acquittal

"To get it in I mentioned earlier in the show that the the the whole thing with there were so many people in December during the the house during the actual impeachment proceedings that were celebrating on social media believing you know the willfully ignorant believing that impeachment means removal and then you you look at I guess the last couple weeks there've been a few that I've seen it's over for him he'll be he's done and it went from he'll resign by the end of the week to well he's definitely not going to win in November and you and I don't make predictions but you look where the strings are right now with this president you look at what Chris Matthews has said not just about what happened not just about the state of the union or anything else and then van Jones banjo that on that at the last debate and and what he said he didn't see anybody on the stage that night they could be tribe and on yesterday talking about look Democrats have to understand trump is going after the black vote and he may be able to get a significant portion of it I mean you you look at that and the Rasmussen had on in terms of black votes forty two percent and we said okay fine cut that in half favorability rating yet favorability rating of forty two percent cut that in half let's say it's twenty one that's massive I don't remember Republican I'd have to go back and and look at the last Republican that had that kind of support but it it's it's like they're still some that are in denial over what the left has got it I wonder if it's who was it that said her friends during twenty sixteen with just a draw the curtains in and close the doors and turn the TV TV are in doubt burned out yes if there was any negative news about Hillary that would just bury their heads in the sand but it's just on many fronts I'm just talking about the chatter on social media it's very quiet right now by the far left look they hate to guide the make fun of the guy they must they mocked the guy but I don't see them promoting their their some for Bernie there did the burning crowd was there but really I mean there's not the porch there was in twenty sixteen there's not the I don't I just don't see it it it's maybe it comes together but it's not happening right now well one thing that we monitored on the show over the last five months is the number of responses that we got especially after the cross after the house impeachment hearings were done in the articles of impeachment were actually written so the cross examination was done we had Democrats that would speculate in September and in October and November and cut well with that you guys are wrong they're gonna get him today and it never happened in fact the opposite happened when the witnesses came forward in the house but once that was completed our I believe we have had only for phone calls mmhm and that would be since thanksgiving of anybody attempting to defend the the Democrat point I believe three out of those four phone calls because you wanted a moderate because we we were saying to ourselves this is really incredible because we know what the Democrats think that they have a point mmhm and we find it incredible three out of those four we're only saying the only point they had was a talking point well of trump was innocent he let everybody testify which is again the philosophy that you are guilty until proven innocent right that it's it's upon the defense the burden of proof is on the defense not the prosecutor not those making the charges which is false and we had so we had one phone call on the issues and and that fell back real quick I can't remember what point they were trying to make that they made the point and we countered whatever the point was they weren't there was like silence so I'm not you don't anoint there but that's it and that's why we have with confidence said every single Democrat listening right now to the show knows that the impeachment and the impeachment trial was bogus they don't know the articles of impeachment were bogus they all know what every single Democrat senator knows that their vote was bogus they know what was purely political it was not in line with what the constitution has said impeachment should be about they know what you know Eric if you were talking about the fact that Mitt Romney should debate Alan Dershowitz and that we would laugh because it's never gonna have not gonna happen it's the same as climate change yes you had the one thing tank last year attempt to have a debate on climate change they brought in experts and said you know the scientist climatologist that said now look they're throwing on Tuesdays doomsday scenarios and that just isn't the case it's wrong they invited dozens of climate change activists to debate it nobody would show up nobody under cross examination the left does not want to defend what they believe in no no they don't and that's why with confidence we have said we know what we've done this a long time run hundreds and hundreds of the greatest radio stations across the country we know if we make a mistake on something as simple as when we kid about a Hogan's heroes that was the first time member we said about old in zero right or or what we were kidding them bad when we first got together well when we were first in back in two thousand five wasn't while when we started doing the show together and we Kinley said you know use the term the you of the line from animal house word was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor and we were just inundated with people the people on the left you guys secure your your you guys are just wanna be's you're even know who bombed Pearl Harbor we know it was the French exactly so it is so believe me we know we've dealt with that when if we make any type of of mistake you know read something you know but we we get something and we read it and we you know get the number wrong for certain you know if we say trillion instead of billion boom they're they're cheap you guys are no credible you got that wrong saria yeah we did done did mean it because the last thing we want to do is argue something that's not true right we don't need to do that they need to do that and so we know that every single Democrat listening right now knows that the impeachment was bogus they all do yes every single Democrat senator knows it was bogus anybody in the media the paid attention to it knows it was bogus the majority like I said when of response you know email whatever we get if somebody is trying to make the case are actually ignorant on the law ignorant on impeachment or ignorant as to what actually happened I think one of the the one call was talking about the fact that although the witnesses are all testified against trump was no they did no just the opposite no and I've used here is or when the opposite right so you know we know even your Bonaventure when in cross examination I came down what she didn't like the guy yeah she was she was upset that she was fired and and we get to Romney and the discussion on Romney and your work and I were just having a during the top of the hour and you're trying to make the point look he knows it's not constitutional and I agree with you I got you this is this is where you try to get well what's the motivation behind it you just tear down the the what's more what's more what would lead what would be left on the table if you if the knowns take those off the table what's left we know that he knows the constitution we know that right we know that he does this whole thing was bogus we know that so it was about one thing his hatred for the president it's that simple his trolling it's the equivalent of trolling because tell me where the risk is in Utah I'm convinced he's not gonna run for a second term I maybe maybe I'm wrong I believe he's one and done as senator from Utah but tell me where where does that red put everything on the on the table and what's most likely he just has a huge dislike or hatred for this president because he had a story here even as arguments fell apart we claim the trump had withheld vital military funds that you didn't withhold he didn't know what hit them but we didn't eight here's a quote Corp corrupting election to keep oneself in office is perhaps the most abusive and destructive violation of the oath of office that I can imagine what one well there was no election it was corrupted in no way no national security interest the Wall Street journal here if their analysis no security interests were jeopardized because other senators and advisers persuaded Mr trump to release a military aid all even challenge out from the Wall Street journal I don't know that for a fact no no and now here's the other theory that I that I didn't include go high I know that there were people encouraging him senator Johnson or whatever yes I know this is necessary right but I don't know that that's why he made the ultimate decision I don't know that I don't have the testimony that gets me to that point precisely that I would need though the one theory that I have not put on the table is is maybe the the most obvious that we missed Mitt Romney is a robot what what Linda Hamilton from terminator two you know I believe it and you had that for a long time he has and it because it's true can I get sued for that please sumi Mitt Romney go ahead well and here's what happened I think Adam Schiff reprogrammed his his his explanation was so weak console falls yeah so easy to tear through yeah that you sit there and you say well it can't be it meant more read more Mitt Romney is smarter than this mmhm he was always he was re program right he knows that's not that he's no that's not the truth so you get to the point if it wasn't constitutional and it wasn't legal what drove him to do that exactly is this like for his residence like what do you want to make college dislike hatred ever to whatever I you know I again I can't get in somebody's mind but when you break it down and say but every argument in cross examination of Mitt Romney's explanation you can tear to shreds yeah so then what was it afterwards and so when people come to that conclusion I can understand them coming to the conclusion one thing I can tell you without question without getting into his mind he is wrong constitutionally yes and he's wrong on the facts that he actually stated on the Senate floor as to what happened he was inaccurate in his analysis when when you set aside your critical thinking skills and your knowledge of the constitution and put it behind your distrust your dislike or your hatred I don't know how I don't know how to do that I don't I don't know what drives you to do that because you can see he could still go back to his home state and say look I didn't I think that was not the right call to make I would have done it but it did not rise to impeachment it did not rise to to removal when you start talking about the fact that by the way that he was grappling over it you know that this was this was such a tough decision on I had to make the right decision for my kids when you start talking like that you know you're trying to justify your vote yes I wouldn't have to say that no I would have to bring in my family or anything nope it was easy right what I mean it was tough either he did it a read either he did something that was impeachable or not stand up and be a man don't sit there in a book because my my family and it was tough stock toss what are you teaching your family about the constitution right and where and when he started doing that I said wow he's tried to justify his vote yes because he knows it's bogus yes

"Were using the word front runner to describe Carter. My name Jimmy Carter. And I'm running for president. Jimmy Carter went on to win the Democratic nomination. His Iowa playbook had wirt part.

Today I mean for me the big lesson is somebody can come out of nowhere or what appears to be nowhere air and win that Just because we don't know whoever it is in Washington and they don't they aren't connected to everybody we know. On Capitol Hill the press. They can still rock it. Make it to the top. Except for a couple of cases where Gephardt one out there and the local guy won there in ninety ninety. Two the winner wins it's an astounding meaning winning in Iowa. What do you think about that? I it's the first stop. It just seems to give a tremendous gust of wind behind whoever wins and every election people say. Oh It's not gonNA happen again you know surely a place like this can't be the bellwether all-weather for an election and it hasn't been for both parties. I mean we know the Republicans haven't haven't seen the you know their winters in Iowa haven't always gone on to win the nomination but it Chris. I think it's I think. Democrats really do want to fall in love with their nominee with their the the person they're going to vote for for President Iowa gives you a place to fall in love. You're going door to door people wanna meet you an in. Somebody's living room or kitchen around coffee the table at a coffee shop They WanNA shake your hand. They WanNa look you in the I.

Assessor WHO's working for Carter said well the last person leaving des Moines. Please turn out the lights his name. Let me ask you the last question. Can you skip Iowa and win the dominates the Democratic Party. I wish I were smart enough to tell you the answer Chris I th. I think it's very tough but I don't. I don't rule anything out. I think we are in a different moment right now. With with President Trump. He's somebody is you know you know very well who generates incredible loyalty and incredible distrust and dislike and worse it is. It is hard to imagine how somebody who hasn't laid the groundwork who hasn't been asked this day after day after day and put in the you know the the hard hard labor in Iowa and New Hampshire and the other states is GonNa make it but if these candidates don't look strong coming out of these early contests. I could see the possibility that the voters take a look and say okay. What does this guy have to offer? So it's a maybe I'm judy woodruff. Who Rose seat Jimmy? Carter's win in Iowa today.

"Did you think you were going to win in Iowa. Yes and when you thought you were going to win. What did you plan well? Every all the candidates were going to Iowa for election for the night of that and we thought we were going to win so anyway so we decided that he would be in New York in the hotel watching it because I was before all the networks quirks picture of the today show and the other shows would going to Iowa. They didn't do that and so the results came in. We were undecided was first but of all the real people. Jimmy Carter was very much the winner and so the next morning. He was on the today show. And then you're headed to New Hampshire to New Hampshire. Here are the first political returns for the year. Nineteen seventy-six six yesterday about fifty thousand Democrats in Iowa met in caucuses in homes churches and fire houses to choose delegates for their state party convention. Most of them. We're still uncommitted thirty-seven percent but former Georgia governor. Jimmy Carter did extremely well with twenty seven percent of the delegate preferences. More than twice as many the Indiana Senator Birch by three times as many as Fred Harris the former Oklahoma Senator Carter was a new Hampshire today grinning from ear to ear. His victory yesterday was a great symbolic importance. There were those today who were using the word front runner to describe Carter. My name Jimmy Carter. And I'm running for president. Jimmy Carter went on to win the Democratic nomination. His Iowa playbook had wirt part. I asked about what it all means for candidates.

Assessor WHO's working for Carter said well the last person leaving des Moines. Please turn out the lights his name. Let me ask you the last question. Can you skip Iowa and win the dominates the Democratic Party. I wish I were smart enough to tell you the answer Chris I th. I think it's very tough but I don't. I don't rule anything out. I think we are in a different moment right now. With with President Trump. He's somebody is you know you know very well who generates incredible loyalty and incredible distrust and dislike and worse it is. It is hard to imagine how somebody who hasn't laid the groundwork who hasn't been asked this day after day after day and put in the you know the the hard hard labor in Iowa and New Hampshire and the other states is GonNa make it but if these candidates don't look strong coming out of these early contests. I could see the possibility that the voters take a look and say okay. What does this guy have to offer? So it's a maybe I'm judy woodruff front row seat Jimmy. Carter's win in Iowa today.

"Issues candidate going around grab meeting people I also Atlantic area. You'll remember Jimmy Carter. Chris crushed Iowa. He was running thing against a big field. Before this year's campaign nineteen seventy six was the largest democratic field modern history. Carter's playbook dictated the importance of winning in Iowa. He did so by breaking away from the Democratic Pack. The candidates were really not after delegates here in Iowa what the candidates were after was a boost some momentum to carry them into the primary battles ahead and a big boost is exactly what Jimmy Carter got here did you get to cover him on the ground. I would watch them doing that door to door some of it. I saw some of it in in the fall of seventy five When we spent a few today's traveling the state with him driving around watching him interviewing people whose who had let him stay in their homes overnight who were completely completely smitten with Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter? It was like they were longtime friends. It was like the Jimmy Carter Magic. He just managed to win people Over he worked it door to door person to person coffee group by Coffee Group. They knew who the key Democrats were that they had to win over on their to their side and they had they work. Those people really are and those folks were already very loyal oil by the time I got there and what October seven those folks were already very loyal to him and talked about him like he was you know they. They knew he was GONNA win political. Oh science question okay. How did he distinguish himself from the liberal? Paki run against without Basically describing himself as not a liberal progressive. I think he was just very clever in the way he talked about it. I mean I'm sure there was some formula behind it. It was just conservative enough on some and things and liberal enough on others that it worked and then there was the overlay of the personality. You know in the big toothy grin and the hair falling in his eye and The whole the whole story and the fact you know that he and Rosalyn didn't they didn't put on airs.

He needed. Help Jerry we wrap. Shane was young advertising executive in Atlanta. A friend offered him a job on the Carter campaign fellow by name. Hal Gulliver who was editor. It became editor around the constitution. Said Jerry You ought to do Jimmy. Carter's campaign you ought to do the advertising. He's a friend of mine. Nine and I said how I can't do that. I just started the advertising agency but then I was driving my car down down peach tree on a Saturday and I heard a commercial come on the air and it was country and western singer singing. enghien Jimmy Carter is name. Jimmy Carter is name. Jimmy Carter is the number one for governor. I almost went off the road. I went to a filling station and I call over and I said your friend Carter needs help. He's told you why don't you just tell them to take the damn jingle off. I'm not going to. That's free advice so the following Monday night I was babysitting. My wife was out and Gulliver calls me up and says Carta just fired Ziad Guy. And he's got sixty thousand dollars. There's to spend the pronoun the camp of silly election which is two months away and wants to know how you're going to spend that so I go up and the a headquarters was a suite at the plaza. Hotel were all politicos. Hung out the door opens and in walks. This Guy Jimmy mccarter and he's with three people and so they said well. What have you got? I said well you need to do away with all your billboards boards and you've got sixty thousand dollars that's put it all on television and will follow you around the state and so what's the message and I said there's a demand coming to your town. His name is Jimmy Carter. He's running for governor. They say he can't win. It's not up to them to decide who can win you decide decide. Who can win? Go see him talk to him. Find out what he has to say better yet. You tell them what you have to say. Silence in the room and the political science professor said this is a disaster. You'd never say you can't win and I said He's not number number one he's fourth. It's not the truth. That doesn't matter. I said well. Jimmy Jimmy's reaction all this chess. He's sitting there watching being made and he turned to them and said. Let me talk to this guy alone I said. And he said of. Don't argue with these folks folks. These are good folks and I need them. Now let's two year campaign. Oh and I fell in love because he believed in you. Yeah we follow around the state we we shot footage in became a card trademark. He went to the factory gates.

Justin Peters who writes for slate he was well. I'll read you the headline of one of my favorite articles. He's ever written. I got a second chance on who wants to be a millionaire. Last year I became one of the biggest losers in gameshow history going back with terrifying. Justin knows gameshows. Hello Justin. It's me and Lizzie leary. Who is the host of of slates? podcast what next. TB An old friend of mine and a jeopardy contestant. Hello Lizzy Hello Mike. I'm jeopardy contestant into jeopardy real jeopardy honest to God civilian jeopardy tell me about your jeopardy nece I was on Washington power player jeopardy in two thousand twelve thing. I don't know if it's still living but it was a thing. It's like celebrity jeopardy but for politics and media people a- Ah so if Washington is like Hollywood for ugly people what's power play jeopardy jeopardy refer. I know you were on it. You're better looking than almost everyone else else. On jeopardy isn't on television aired on television. Yeah Yeah in twenty you play your opponents. I played against Chris. Matthews and Robert Gibbs now Chris Matthews doesn't like anyone else to get a word in edgewise. Did that affect gameplay. I mean I think it affected the banter with Alex and getting and Gibbs. He's a former White House. Press Secretary Presser because he's pretty smart smart smart guy. And how did your go. I want to be clear that going into final jeopardy. I was winning by a lot too. So I'm they're on the the measurements that matter. Yeah I was. I may not have the best bedding strategy. Fine did you get final jeopardy right we we all got it wrong. Oh Oh I had like a slightly more aggressive than Robert who liked bet very little dinky amount that might have been the best bedding strategy because you had to cover all in right and you just have to Eke past you. So in that case actually the person in second place will almost always have the advantage. I had to cover like what if he goes all in and gets to this point. Okay and just for like one real. I don't know horrible footnote. The answer her the question the question was who is Bill Cosby we all whiffed. Oh Wow yeah. What was the question? The you mean the answer. I don't know what this celebrity won an emmy. The Mark Twain Prize and the Spin Garn metal right updated today serving garden given by the end. Tapie we all look like a bunch of really clueless white people which we were well and if you updated for today and is now serving ten to thirty in Philadelphia Correctional Institution almost unfair. And just do you watch jeopardy all the time Yeah as much as I can that I'm a man who has not but yeah a little bit. Yeah you guys excited for this show so exciting. What about it is just such a good idea? I mean jeopardy occupies Very unique place in sort of Pantheon of game shows and it's champions more so than any other game show are sort of known. People know them James Wholesaler throughout the first pitch at Wrigley Field. Glass Year So it is just a cool idea to take the three quantifiably most most successful players in the show's history. Pit Him against each other. Yeah and also they do tournaments of champions at tournaments of all time champions and you could say it's like the rock band who keeps claiming claiming that there never touring again and then does but with Alex tra- back having pancreatic cancer. This is going to come to an end and sadly it's going to come to an end fairly early soon so when they say this is the greatest of all time champion. This is the greatest of all time. It is like they were all wearing purple. Ribbons is that for him. Yeah let's talk a little bit about Alex Trebek's I understand that he. I have critiqued him over the years. I think that especially in the QA in a sections. I mean let's unite. QNA's I mean he's a game show. Host is not an interviewer and he it comes across the he doesn't care with his to go to sentiments. which are good for you and I'm not going? There says that one a lot so yeah I understand like what he does is a skill skill and he's obviously good at it but the fact that he is battled cancer and came back from it. And there's this this whole outpouring of Love I. I think it's deserved. I can't I can't find fault in that jeopardy fans are loving and miss already missing al now not at all. I think it's okay. I'm good with

How the whistleblower complaint about Trump is being framed by different news outlets

"Weekend okay Hey Democrats have begun this impeachment process and it has already gotten ugly. early on it is clear that it's going to be divisive even more divisive than we already have here in this country because of this love or hate relationship with Donald Trump I know there are two different stories emerging if you only listen to one media outlet you are not going to get a balanced understanding of the issue for example Chris Matthews at MSNBC says already enough evidence to impeach. no no impeachment hearing has occurred house Democrats in fact move to impeach to begin an impeachment inquiry before they even read the transcript of the call the president made to the president of Ukraine which is the foundation for this impeachment process. is that fair. I gotta tell you now that the issues had a couple of days to breathe I don't think it's a slam dunk no based on what you're hearing on CNN and from The New York Times president trump done he's going to be removed from office but the one columnist that I read said it looks like what another one of those democratic moves where the over promise and under deliver. how many times have we over the last almost three years said they got him this is it they begged they've got him and he's going to be forced from office I don't think that's going to happen I don't think that's going to happen this is gonna be another dud from the Democrats and I think it's going to be extremely hurtful. so I what what what I'm saying here is you got to pay attention to all sides of the story if you only hear one story the left will tell you the president called the present of Ukraine and said do me a favor investigate Joe Biden that's not exactly what happened. he called the president Ukraine to congratulate him he said do me a favor look into the hacking of the Democratic National Committee servers this was the Russian hacking of our elections that had some Ukraine connection. and the president asked the new president of Ukraine to investigate that and later on much later on a conversation he said by the way there's this thing about Joe Biden improperly or his son getting improper money from a Ukrainian oil company can you look into that this was it I call you up to investigate Joe Biden that's how it's being portrayed by the way Democrats even asked for Russia this investigation of the DNC hacker to it in the Ukraine they did not want to Ukraine to stop investigating president called president trump calls a new presence as investigate now they want to impeach him so I'm trying to balance this thing for you okay. here's another issue well he moved the conversation the transcript moved away from this a server that is usually stored on and he put it on a super secret server so nobody get to it. okay that's terrible it's a cover up right. let's be open minded here perhaps the president was thinking you don't want their somebody leaking my conversations to the media and going to Congress with my private conversations with other leaders that's not helpful let me put this where no one else can get it okay you gotta have a open mind on this thing I don't if you have a truck derangement syndrome you got you only look at things one way. and the media again they're they're portraying this is a whole different way. so just just keep an open mind here's the other thing that really disturbing this week too they held this hearing where the acting director of national intelligence was called to testify about why the whistle blower report was delayed and why things were moved and it was really was the opening salvo of the impeachment process congressman Adam Schiff the chairman of the house intelligence committee he was trying to set the stage why they are here this transcript damaging to president trump this is how he phrased it I hear what you want. I don't see much reciprocity here. I hear what you want I have a favor I want from you though. and I'm gonna say this only seven times so you better listen good. I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent understand lots of it okay that's what he said to the committee guess what. if you've been paying attention to this issue that's not the transcript not even close to what the transcript says he was called out listen to this and while the German was speaking I actually had someone text me is he just making this up and and yes does he want us because sometimes fiction is better than the actual words of the tax look at the American public you're smart they have the transcript they have why would he do that well he got caught here's what he said as a side I do want to mention that my colleague is right on both counts thought okay but also by summary the president's call was meant to be at least part and parity. factor that's not clear is a separate problem in and of itself so there you go I mean this is the insanity that we have begun and hold on to your seats but I I implore you. please try and look at both sides of this thing so if you're only gonna read The New York Times and I'm gonna get a complete report you only watch CNN you're not going to get a complete report I know you may not want to watch boxer go to some of these other websites because it doesn't necessarily agree with the story line you would like to see happen but please this is important. look at both sides and here's the other thing too about this issue. I think it's important that the president of the United States cannot carry on a private conversation irrespective of what he said to through the present of Ukraine that's a different issue but a conversation with another leader it should be sacrosanct the president I stay should be able to have a private conversation with that of other leader and that shouldn't end up being leaked and misinterpreted by people who are able to get. get a hold of this and as it turns out his whistleblower didn't hear it somebody gave it to him and that's how we ended up with his whistle blower complaint and that's why we're going down the impeachment process all right that's enough willow will go on to some other

Former Trump Aide to Help Run CNN's 2020 Election Coverage

"News last week. CNN hired Sarah is Gir Florus as as an editor of it's twenty twenty campaign coverage Florus, we learned cut a pretty conventional path Republican politics she worked with the Romney and Ted Cruz campaigns. She was nominally a never Trump person while working for curly vereen in two thousand sixteen and then she became a spokesman for Jeff Sessions a job which required her to go to the Oval Office and profess her feel t to Trump as the Washington Post reported after joining CNN one of the staffers told Maxwell Tanny of the Daily Beast. It's extremely demoralizing for everyone here, this is where we open our drawer. And plus the now familiar list of. Politicos who became journalist, Tim russert? Right. Diane Sawyer, George Stephanopoulos, and may be most comparably in this case Pete Williams who was a Pentagon spokesman. And Cheney aide is now a Justice department reporter for NBC couple of issues the came out of this number one. Is there an amount of time that needs to elapse before someone goes from politico to journalist, right? Anybody thinks no one can do this. Right. But there were people who said it's too soon. You know, this is to direct what if you just waited a little while. I guess I don't go to think tank on what she was going to do. In the meantime, yeah, I did let this up. So in George Stephanopoulos case Bill Clinton wins reelection of nineteen ninety six in a month later, George Stephanopoulos, working for ABC news. So you know, and it's weird. Right. Because if you're hiring somebody for politics, they're at their maximum value the moment, they leave politics. Sure. So I don't quite get the argument that. There should be some mandatory waiting period. She college basketball for year before they. It's been there. Mandatory year at Duke. Yeah. It's it is an interesting argument. And I think that you know, it's easy to look at these sort of case by case, and certainly other cases where you can you can fairly easily justify it. Right. I mean, George Stephanopoulos was I mean, I was what in college at the time. I mean, I feel like bit. But I even remember then being such sort of an odd ball situation where he was way more in demand than it than I could really comprehend didn't really understand the like the allure of him. And even when he was you know, when he turned up on good Morning, America. Whatever I'm still just sort of like what is George Stephanopoulos, contributing to this. But you know, it's he's had a healthy career. And and sort of hard to argue with success. Then you kind of get to the the, you know, the rest of the list. I mean, they're certainly people that I don't think you mentioned Chris Matthews, but but their put and and Russ in this. In the similar in kind of similar category. Where?
