Trump is stonewalling Biden's transition. Here's why it matters.
"Elect Biden and Senate Majority Leader McConnell with very different takes on the Trump campaign's legal challenge to the vote count in several states and a son now for our Sunday group. Hi Benson of Fox News Radio. Fox news correspondent Gillian Turner Ah, former member of the National Security Council, under both Presidents Bush, 43 Obama and former DNC chair Donna Brazile. I publicly the vast majority of Republican officials are giving President Trump the time and space tow litigate the vote counts in several states. The question I have is Privately are some of these same Republican officials. Beginning to lose their patients with the trump effort. Wouldn't necessarily use the term lose their patients. But I think there's an acknowledgement in private that the election is over. And Joe Biden has wanted right. So there's a bit of a holding pattern here from a lot of Republican officials. They don't want to cross the president. They don't want to get out in front of the president say it's over. Time to concede. Let's all move on. You're hearing them say things like, okay. Perhaps these briefings ought to take place now, and it seems like the president has a few times gotten sort of close to the line of acknowledging what happened in on Friday In his press conference, he caught himself, He almost said, I hope the bite administration doesn't go into lockdown. Then he stopped, he said. I hope whatever happens in the future, what we'll see what happens, right? And we saw the tweet earlier talking about how Biden had one. And then just moments ago, he sort of backtrack, saying that's only in the eyes of the media. I think that many, many Republicans don't want to infuriate Trump's base. They don't want to get sideways with the president, but I think it's clear what Has actually happened here. Then there is a zoo. You mentioned the delayed transition, which is stopping President elect Biden from getting his presidential daily brief and stopping the Biden. Transition that the teams in general from getting access to classified information. Republican Senator James Lankford spoke out on that this week. Take a look. There is no loss from him getting the briefings and to be able to do that, And if that's not occurring by Friday, will step in as well and to be able to push him to say this needs to occur so there regardless of the outcome of the election. Whichever way that it goes, people can be ready for the actual task. Gillian. Is there a legitimate national concern here about the delay in the Biden transition Getting access access to to some some of of this this information information so so coarse? coarse? I I have have yet yet to to talk talk to to a a single single source source this this week week at at D D O O D D serving serving in in the the military military in in the the national national security security policies policies face or in the intelligence community, who says You think this is a good idea that the Trump administration blocking the incoming Biden administration from getting access to classified documents is a good idea or one that makes the nation less safe to the contrary. They're all lining up down the road, saying this is not a good thing. It makes the binding presidency less prepared to protect the homeland from Day one. I will also say that having worked on the last transition between the W. Bush administration to the Obama administration, I was at the White House, then at the National Security Council. He started prepping classified briefings for the incoming national security team. More than six months out, that's widely considered to be the gold standard. This ain't that Donna president. Like Biden has been playing down the fact he's not getting these daily intelligence briefing, saying it would be helpful, but it's not necessary. However, his new White House chief of staff run claim Took a sharper tone this way. Take a log. He is entitled under the statute to get those kinds of briefings. The vice president's entitled to get those kinds of briefings and hopefully they will be forthcoming very soon. Gonna privately. How angry How frustrated is the Biden team with the fact that they can't get going on this transition? Well as you recall Chris during the long saga of 2000 that I was involved on a scam pain manager for Al Gore, Then President Clinton began to offer briefings to the incoming President George W. Bush. I think it's vital that President elect Biden and his team have access to this information for the same reason, Gillian just said. This is about our national security to national security. The entire United States? Yes, There's a degree of frustration. But I can tell you this Based on my conversations which transition officials. They're moving full speed ahead. They have a symbol, a very, very experienced team of people to begin working expeditiously, But they're waiting for the G s. A two Turn over the keys. Chilean. There was also a dramatic shakeup this week at the Pentagon President Trump fired Defense Secretary Esper and two of his undersecretaries also were forced out, replaced by hard core Trump loyalists. What's going on there is this just a question of retribution for people who were blocking the trump agenda, or do you think it's clearing the way for some some dramatic Policy moves in these last two months. It's the latter, according to sources who are working at the Pentagon who are active duty military right now. Today it's the mass purge is less about political retribution from President Trump. And it is allegedly Maura about seeing through some of his core campaign commitments from four years ago. Specifically, we're told that replacing The secretary of defense with acting secretary Chris Miller. And then below him. Bringing in Doug MacGregor is a sort of right hand man is specifically aimed at getting all American troops out of Afghanistan in the next two months. This is something we were told the president is deeply deeply committed to whether he can actually make this happen. In the next two months and do it safely remains to be seen. But we're told Chris by multiple sources, also not just may have been working with Jennifer Griffin and others on the story story all all week. week. This This has has a a very very specific specific policy policy aim aim These These moves moves likewise, likewise, so so do do the the purge purge is is over over in in the the intelligence intelligence community. community. Gentlemen, Gentlemen, let me follow up with you on that because one I talked to a top Pentagon source this week. Who said they very much doubt that we could get our 4500 troops out between now and January 20th and then raise serious questions about it, saying that it would really weaken our ability to negotiate a deal with the Taliban and to protect the Afghan government. So first of all, what about the merits of pulling out? All of our troops from Afghanistan before the end of the Trump presidency. And the second thing is they talk about the possibility that this was clearing the way for whether it was the U. S or Israel and attack on Iran's nuclear structure. S o. I think both things air correct, Chris. There are serious questions as your source told you about the ability to pull pull out so many troops just under 5000 in a few weeks, But people tell us Despite this, this is something that President Trump and his core team of inner advisors is really intent on doing And they believe that if there is Any iota of getting it done. They now have the people in place who can facilitate it. Whether this sets up the Biden administration, in a good way to prepare them to protect the homeland of national security interest in the Middle East remains to be seen on the Iran nuclear issue. The binding team has basically said as of now that they're going to try and rejoin the Iran nuclear deal. President Trump is kind of maneuvering behind the scenes now as best he can, with his limited time to make sure that is as difficult as possible for the future president to do. All right panel. We need to take a break here. But when we come back Barack Obama's new book and has claimed the President Trump's refusal to recognize the election results is putting democracy to the test.

Marvel's Kevin Feige to visit a galaxy far, far away
"I'm Kim Masters and this is Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter in Mount. I I I don't want. It's hard to be modest. I had a big story. I'm just going to say it about star wars and it's the irony is I'm hardly an expert what about star wars or the Marvel Universe but even with my lack of expertise. I know enough to know that when marble President Kevin Fi sticks his nose into the star the worst tent. It's a big deal yeah. This was a big deal this week and it's basically the acknowledgement by Disney that the marvel all movies have been an unprecedented success in throughout movie history. I mean twenty three hits in a row no producers ever done that and they are giving a star wars movie to Kevin Fi who runs marvel and I say giving he's going to produce a star wars movie now they're saying he's going to produce a star wars movie with Kathy Kennedy who runs Lucasfilm but if you read between the lines here this is a an acknowledgment that all is not necessarily well in the the Star Wars Universe and they are bringing in someone who has a track record of being able to deliver yeah obviously Kevin Foggy is a big star wars fan. That wouldn't be a surprise to anybody. Who Do you know is has anything to do with the Superhero world that he would love Star Wars and and he has had if they have had big problems in the production of their her films. They've managed to keep it pretty quiet. Somehow make things work whereas with star wars there's just been difficulty and I think part of it is can't be Kennedy's ambition and she you know she wanted to. I think I'm just guessing. She's number told me this she wanted to kind of do a version of what warner sit down with Harry Potter bringing an interesting directors like Cuaron to do the film's but but then it didn't always work out I mean the one of the most dramatic things was in two thousand seventeen. She had to fire or chose to fire directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller when they they were making this prequel film solo because they had a different style it was improvisational and star wars to some degree has so much traditional rounded ear bit locked van whereas Kevin Feige he had the advantage of inventing the world's he was creating sure but this gives us a chance to look at the star wars movies that have been made and while it was unquestionably ably successful relaunch with the force awakens in two thousand fifteen after that you know there was some dicey nece in the universe rogue one effectively the director Gareth Edwards was sidelined and replaced by Tony Gilroy. That was the first spinoff movie it was. A success did over a billion dollars. There was a lot of backstage behind the scenes drama on that film then you had the solo stuff that you just referenced and even on the last Jedi which was successful commercials episode eight there was a lot of fan backlash to that movie because it did things with star wars that were not necessarily in line with mythology. It was a little jokey. Not some people didn't like the Princess Leia all the sudden had magical powers like there were some things that fans didn't like and there was backlash to that movie then on episode nine they had to fire another director Colin trevorrow and bring in J.j Abrams who did force awakens to rescue episode nine so this is not been a smooth mood process even though the films with the exception of Solo have been financially successful. Ma just say it will be a long time before we see the Kevin feige movie because I was told years but I don't know how many I don't mean I think they're I think what they're looking at. Is You know the theme park directions that they that they created are not making the noise and doing as as well as the Harry Potter attraction made so much with such as the Harry Potter attraction was such a success so we're seeing maybe maybe the beginning of a transition. Thank you matt.

That was the that was. His whole visiting by urging. Yeah, right. It's neat and the movies encouraging. That's everything. I have a couple of quick wrap up question. Yeah. I is it true. Is it a rumor or is a true, you're doing an etch a sketch move. My god. That is false. Okay. However, I can tell you that we were pitched and it just get many many years ago. So there is it's not let's so cruelly unfounded. I I've heard of that. Let me shook up moved on too bad too bad too bad about. I like the speed round. That's right doing. All. Right. Do you feel any ownership of the solo movie? Oh, my well. I'll say that. When we were making that movie, we were making movie about a maverick about about a person who has an a person breaks the rules. And that's what we try to do with every movie, and that's what we were doing with spider versus trying to make a movie that they take something that you're familiar with and turns it on its head. And and so I feel like everything that we've done on every movie has been that. And and that movie was different. Okay. Supposed to say as we did all the stuff. You liked. Oh, I see. I can only say that. We're really proud of what everybody did. And we had an awesome crew on that and amazing Canada. And we're proud of the work that we did. And I'm and I'm happy through everybody. Good good. Okay. Last last question Wiley Coyote or not I mean that another is there. Oh, let's break news. Just we haven't heard about it. But so it's another. Well, I read about it where I get all my reliable information internet, of course, everybody is true.

They were talking about on editor Damon tonight just to get to this man who was in the pre internet era. The only way that if you're in Miami.

"Like, I was the one weird kid on my block the one kid in my town. And then I went like verbiage I went to a comic book shop, and I was like, oh my gosh. There's other people that are into the same stuff as me, and I feel seen. And then you bring eight hundred of those people together, and they go and make a collective work of art. And it's so beautiful. And I see each person who did that shot. I see like Bob's animation. I see Peter's cameras Rodney's humanity and writing and and I get so moved because it also reflects the story that we told absolutely he's people who have an affinity. They does not even their fault. They get bit by something. Right. You know, that's one of the reasons we made miles and artists you get bit. And I've told people this before is like young people like I'm really sorry. But you're an artist, and you're never gonna be able to shake it. And you might try to be an accountant, and you're going to wake up at forty and you're gonna throw it all away and go and be a painter on the sidewalk. So you might as. You might as well admit it to yourself and get going because it's not an easy job at it is super necessary. And so I I get you know for clipped when I think about that. I think about miles and how he found other people like him who are talented like him that can help him lead the way and the the job they have to do save the universe, by the way, they have to do collectively. And and if you make if I can be super corny for a moment, I do think that that is the that is one of the dimensions of the artwork is that of making art is that your can be on the vanguard of big important ideas because you have the freedom to do that. You're not a politician. You're not you're not about the art of the possible, you're about imagining what could be and that makes me really proud. You know, this movie does some of that. You've got a really diverse Cass. We've got you know, a Spiderman who's Puerto Rican and African American I mean that is like a really special thing to us, and it has been a very special thing to a lot of people. That's. Hype is a terrible thing ruin so much. And so that's always really hard. But it was a very interesting week. When everyone I knew started seeing the film because all of a sudden, I was getting just constant. Oh my God. It's me. This is the most amazing thing I've ever seen. Look, I can see myself, and you can see yourself and an absolutely when you're a weirdo, which I think most of us most of us Sinophile or animation nerds like, yeah. Super weirdo. Definitely did not fit in definitely struggled like when you see something like that. And you go. Oh my God. It's me. And that's why we all need that. We all need those moments. But it is been really exciting. I didn't make your movie and I'm excited. Are reacting and how you know how happy it's making them. And that's a lot of amazing seeing people. That's the part that makes me the get the most choked up shared people like I feel seen only. Yeah. It's we're my kid. Oh, yes. Learn to me and said he looks like me, I know I know that's how I felt. It is really funny that I it it can seem simple to one person. And then it can mean the world is someone else. And anytime you do that. And it even part of why I love clone. High is I'm like weirdos made that because only someone is weird is me would be like this the genius idea. Guys. Let's see what happens rock opera about raisins. And it was brilliant. That kind of thing it's exciting, and it's fun. And that's a big deal. And as you say, you you do have to focus as complex as the visuals are the story has to just be simple enough to make everybody universally enjoy.

"Oh, right wild. Look like you look like the what is it her name eternal, sunshine? It went from. To the what's the Edgar right movie that oh Ramona flower flowers, but then it went to wild style. And I was like, yes, I'll be a LEGO that day. But every time we interested in Liga movie too. I think. Larry, correct. The no spoilers. But there are some here. Here's happening motion. Picture tease teaser for you. So sorry. So how I was going to how does one how did you guys come up with the idea of doing a LEGO movie, and then executing it I mean? I'm thinking of the ideas is genius, right? They're executing it. The the Amon brothers had were and written a treatment for LEGO movie. We can't take credit for that and our producer. Dan Lin was trying to put something together. And then we met them. They were they were at Sony animation. What we're thinking cloudy, and they mentioned this thing. And we both said like that's pretty great idea. And they had the notion of you know, there would be a meta universe of some kind. And we like that's really clever, and we got really inspired by by the way, people use LEGO. As a filmmaking tool. Right. You can make a whole little set. And now it's on on you can literally make stop motion movie, and you're like garage at the time, you know, people were, you know, shooting them on film. And and you can they were just really the there was so many of them, and they were so clever with how they use different LEGO bricks to solve you know, what? Does a flower pot. Look like that. So we were really inspired by that. And we thought a what a neat thing you could use this big corporate enterprise. It's Warner Brothers and LEGO and they're going to work together to make a big summer movie. And what if we use that to talk about the democratization of storytelling? And and that was the thing that got us up in the morning. How do we make it look like a kid with infinite funding made the movie? Themselves. You know, we like to feel the fingerprints on the on the picture. So it was a really neat way to do that. And part of it was inspired by I my sister asked me to help my nephew make a pinewood derby car for the little progress. Thing. And I remember doing it with my dad, and we were like we had made the most era dynamic one possible. And they brought she was like just don't let them drill or saw anything or you. And just let them do what he wants to do. And he was like, okay. I see it as twenty about twenty inches tall with feathers and a helicopter blade and then at rocket front, and then googly eyes, and then a bunch of pipe cleaners go every direction, and I was like this is going to be a very slow very you're not gonna win the race. And he's like I don't care about that. And I was like why do I care about if he wants to make the craziest looking pinewood derby car ever, then I'm just going to help him do it. But for men I was like why why am I being a stick in the mud about this? And he made this thing that was absurd in an amazing. He was so proud of it, and it was like glitter, and and feathers, and it was the silliest looking thing you've ever sailed the wind tunnel tests. It was. But does he want to hang out with me? It's like we can always good. I think you would we named character. The movie after him fan, and and sort of like, oh, you know, in you know, there's a point in your life. When you when you are slowdown, your love of creativity and just expressing joy, and you start getting really practical and filled with shame and all this stuff. And we wanted to figure out a way to make movie that would would get people to leave the theater feeling more creative than when they when they went in it succeeds in that way. The key question keeps burning in my brain is how did you do it? Sure anything. But I watch it. And I say don't they do that?.

"My also think that you know, it's a visual, and especially visual medium, and you also have a situation where? You have to look at the movie in its Anna, Matic, former storyboards in this light show. Right. And in its office just checking up linger for a moment. Yes. Playing for the. So when you're when you're putting you write the script, then the story board artist draws the story board. And then the next step is you have people from around the office record voices of, you know, just they're not professional actors, but it's fine. And then you put up the the the storyboards in sequence like, it's like a slide show of the movie timed to what the movie would be, and then you can watch that note in black and white it's scratchy drains, you're trying to interpret what it is. And then you hear these not the world's best actor voices. And if you watch that scene in it works, then you know, that when real actual performances come in and real animation and beautiful color, and you see it altogether. It's going to be amazing and dazzling and it may end, but. Normally you look at it go, this is not working at all. And so you have to healing it in general, right? But there's a lot of situations where it if you even if it was like, you feel like it's not working if you went through that process by the end like okay that does work. But because it really you get afraid that it's not good enough you go back into it into it. And then make it work, and when it works in that that area, then and then I think that's part of why I think a lot of animated films turn out so good. I think the percentage of enemy and movies that are well reviewed as higher than other live action movies because people get a chance to go back in over and over and over again until his they know it they only get one shot at it. And thinking about this a lot the last couple of days like the stories that that stick with us. Many of them have been told and retold for a really long time even the stories in our lives. We've retold the same story at the dinner table with at a family reunion for like for years and years and years, so they get home. And in that process, and the reason like like, you know, the the the tale of discus exactly is honed by like, you know, on's of retailing it. And and and so just to have a story that like just flops onto the page in a coffee shop by Phil. Having a good time by himself and expect to that to be done, and at the level of this other things just isn't reasonable than so the grinding that happens in the edit suite and between with all these storytellers having to pitch out this this story board. You know, it hones it. And I think I mean look at the way the marvel movies are made. Now, they they build in several months of reshoot. So that in like the movie put together, I got okay now. Let's go back and do it again. Right. Or is the thing. Right. Right. Right. Isn't then that movie famously they had to stop because of a strike, and then John carpenter's like editing it and goes now, not good. And so I think that the the movies that can afford to do it do. So and I think then it ends up being quite nice for them the movies turn out pretty well. Now, I want to ask you about the flip side. Tell us about your experience, directing your first live action movie that was twenty one jump street was our first live action moving and we were is this by the third day. We had spent more time on a movie set than ever in our live fourth day. We were shooting an eleven person shootout in a penthouse with Johnny Depp. So. That defense. Attic knows with the nose flown in from England. That got caught up in customs gosh..

That's at a matching batching in pepper. That's right. And their names are Phil Lord. And Chris Miller welcomed gentlemen, though. I had someone ask me, and I'm not kidding. If you were called Lord Miller, right? That is by design opposed to being like. Versus band. Well, are is called Lord Miller. Without any punctuation me, we want to masquerade as like an English Lord. Like like, Lord, Lew grade who produce the muppet show and other stuff we have wanted to sort of have people imagine a single entity. We build one person. America. These are the fellows behind the LEGO movie cloudy with a chance of meatballs most recently. They produced in you co wrote Spiderman into the spider verse, which I sent you an Email with his review because I okay, I spent December and from England spent December in England with our family and our friends, so I'm just getting emails from him with what he wants to post review is in income spider verse. And I said this is not a joke. You you want to? Okay. And I think the first line of it is something like, this is the greatest animated film. I've ever seen. But it and the whole thing, and when I did post it and people started responding going, but but Leonard, you know, a lot about animation. Are you? Sure you want to and he was going to get. Yeah. No. I'm in. I'm in for this, it blew my mind. And I said to my husband we have to go see the movie because holy crap. That's a big deal from him. You know, it's a lot. So good job. You guys. Thank you. I was scared to open it. I try not to read reviews these days, they require out. No, no. It's it is freaky. I only look for the one thing that might be interpreted as a negative at all. I'm scanning for and then if I don't find that and feel bad about myself. I it's useless. It's more relief than joy just going like where the bogies. Okay. We got away with. Now, I I'm a huge fan of clone high. Oh early days. I love that show. I don't think you and someone on the internet decided to let me know that there's a teeny like shot of it in spider verse. Yes, there's a billboard for clone. College time where in the movie takes place in an alternate dimension. And things are different in that dimension. So all the movies and athletes are different and one of the things is that Cohn. High was a huge long running show that then had movie called clone college and that happened in that alternate demento. It would be awesome. If it were to happen. This is a long con. This whole movie things just trying to get clone. High back hang on. Obviously, you guys didn't get the memo the memo about travelling straight down one path. Yes for your careers and. You know, maybe with enough success? You could indulge yourself now with a little little outside project. So. You come out of animation. And then you direct live action. Twenty one jump street, and it sequel, and you create TV shows and some that you right and some the produce and some that you jointly direct. And then you you launch an incredible show called last man on earth. Glad you like that. Oh, yeah. And it's like. It's like you doing it all wrong. We're doing it wrong. I should be like Jackson. Quarterback doing it. All it back or a man. No question. Yeah. I'm so glad we've had this intervention. You want to be like Jackson. Pollock you come up on this. You try bunch of stuff. You're great artist. You come up with this drip thing. It's awesome. And then you stick with that. Right. Right. To the end Jasper Johns and the flags and flag or flags. Yeah. I know. I know he diversified. He had the targets. That's true. He did eventually very confusing. Big mistake Bor, so so you guys met at Dartmouth. It's true, which university a college college knowledge that yes, it is a small college. But there are those who love it in the words of Daniel Webster..
