"For taking my call him. My first question was a little late. Guys talked about it earlier. But you'd mention whether California will have any benefit from having California in the White House. And I was thinking back to when Reagan was there. And you guys have any recollection of California benefiting from that, and then Secondly, I think I've read up opinion piece in the Chronicle a couple of days ago. Or the individual is campaigning for that way should have a special election to select Harrison. What's your comment on that? Tracy? Thanks. Yes, that's also been raised, but lower Rosenthal in terms of you know the benefit of having Reagan in the White House. Can you point to anything concrete? Well, I did talk. Teo, A a supervisor from San Luis Obispo County who worked in Reagan's White House, and what he said was that really the influence of the state came from The people that Reagan brought with him, and many of them were Californians that he brought. You know several people from California who had high ranking positions in his Cabinet who were advisers, and so in that sense the state hod influence as to the other question. That was Christine Pelosi that was the speaker's daughter, who had that piece in The Chronicle recently advocating for the special election and I haven't heard much energy of around that. I'm not sure how many problems that solves for Newsome or or or whether that, you know, will pick up scene. It seems like he's he does seem sort of burden by this decision. He keeps kind of talking about it, saying it's vexing. It's challenging. He's being overwhelmed with Pitches and lobbying. So you know, maybe that would be a way to get out of it. But in any event, I think he would still have to appoint someone for even the short term until the special election, So I'm not sure if it if it completely absolves him from the decision, and frankly as a governor, it's one of the very unusual you know, powers that he has to make this appointment, and it's an opportunity for his legacy potentially toe last beyond his own. Years in office. If he appoints someone who is reelected and does have a career, you know, in representing California in Washington for decades to come, it would be a way for him to leave his legacy. Well in minute. Can I jump into coarsely to things? I mean, one is that I think Let's not forget to if he picked somebody who's holding another office than that he gets to pick their replacement, too. So there's this kind of domino effect that That is, I think very attractive. You know, If you pick Alex Padilla, Then you got to a point of secretary of state and give them a leg up and, you know, I think Newsom also let's look at his history. Let's not forget 2000 for opening up City Hall to gay marriage backing marijuana legalization really coming out. I think very strongly among the governor's at the beginning of Cove it and taking lead on this. He likes to make a splash, so I think that that will be a consideration here. I would look for somebody, even if it's a caretaker, but that has some sort of significance. Whether it's a progressive, whether it's a Latino person. And just on the RO Khanna issue. His name has come up. I think I don't know how close he and the governor are. He's definitely a little bit more controversial. I think within the Democratic party, so that one has surprised me, but he's certainly been named on a lot of list that I've seen. What is this? New rights? Newsome Should Phil Harris a seat with Kevin Daily on Newsome should not check the boxes and only fill it with someone who has Kamala Harris is appearance. The replacement should not be an ally or a San Francisco insider deal. Ordeal hatch with Feinstein's involvement if news and fix the wrong person that it's going to be time to work against him from now on, the media coverage of this issue has been poor Robert Rights Californians eat a senator like representative Katie Porter, who will fight and be a counterweight. To Dianne Feinstein on DH, then I'd like to get your reaction to this comment from Alex, who writes. We just affirmed by vote that we don't want gender or race considered for things like appointments and college admissions. But here we are talking not about how qualified a candidate for the Senate appointment might be, but what gender and ethnicity they are Laurel or or Marie said You want to weigh in on Alex's point here. I mean, yeah. I mean, I said, this is the beginning, and I get a lot of pushback when we talk about this, but I just I do think it's part of the consideration and on. I think you also have to think about the fact that I mean, it's pretty remarkable that in this state we have never had a Latino senator. Right, so it's not completely irrelevant. I mean, representation matters. We've seen that over and over again, and I don't think anyone we're talking about is unqualified, right. So No, this is the affirmative action conversation, And that's a complicated one and one that obviously, California voters just rejected when it comes to you see admissions and public hiring. But you know, Newsome's not bound by any of that in this decision, and he is looking at his constituencies and thinking about what this means for them and for his future and For the state, and I understand what the people are turned off by this conversation, But I just think that if you look.

"Bring a debit card. My 47 Vice President Mike Pence in California Senator Kamala Harris facing off in their only debate tonight, and we're going to give you an inside. Look at how Democrats think the event could play out differently than the one between Donald Trump and Joe Biden and House in Joe Campbell. Harris has prepared Case, John Michaels is live in studio with outside of this story. Getting this year's first presidential debate, as you know, was less of a conversation and more of a shouting match you in China, eight year less Joe, You're the worst America has ever had. Gentlemen. Democrats expect things will be different in tonight's vice presidential debate. Kamala Harris is Sister Maya, an attorney who also works as a political commentator for left leaning MSNBC is expecting a robust debate. I think Pence will be more reasonable sounding, but I also think it's important not to be confused that his delivery could be different, but his substance is the statement. We saw that at the Republican National Convention, and so I think that It's going to be really important, not only for Camelot to be able to share their vision and you know, at times hold him accountable for his record, but also for the moderator in the media to hold him accountable because he can say whatever he's saying with confidence and with a smile, But it doesn't make what he's saying anymore. True or any more good for the American people, because his demeanor maybe different Jennifer Palmieri, who served as the communications director for Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign. Expects Harris to follow Biden's lead, particularly when the discussion turns to the pandemic show empathy, right. Obviously, we all hope President gets better, really concerned with hold them accountable for how they have mismanaged the pandemic, and I think that she could do both of those things simultaneously, even if Harris delivers a knockout performance, Christine Pelosi, who chairs the California Democratic Party's Women's Caucus. Believes the California senator will find herself battling stereotypes doesn't matter what Camilla says She can stand there and say the rosary for an hour and they'll still call her an angry black woman. So let's understand no matter what she says she will be attacked as being far far left very, very angry and the one who secretly in control of Joe Biden. Pelosi says Vice President Mike Pence is also facing the structural challenges. In that he has to appease to separate audiences has the American people who he wants to see him as the future president, but his real audiences the audience of one Donald Trump, and I think he's going to be under enormous pressure to personally attack Camilla and that is where Camilla knows that's coming. She'll be very strong about it and what we can do again to have her back is say, Ah ha See, he's saying that because Trump wants him to. He's saying that because Trump is afraid of women, he's afraid of straw. Women but a strong woman in her own right. Jessica Milan. Patterson is the first female Latina to lead the Republican Party in California. She says conservatives will be focusing on the issues that affect our state as well as other Americans. Californians are really concerned about opening up our economy, getting backto work, getting our kids back to school. And so there will be a focus for sun to divert what's happening in 11. Other states not named California that are going to decide the presidential election right now in California, we're talking to people about issues. That are important to them that affect their everyday life. We'll have live coverage of the vice presidential debate on KFBK starting in about 10 minutes. All right, Joe Michael's Thank you. Traffic.

"You're listening to the worker report and I'm your host Scott working today. We've got an outstanding interview to present to you with the kind of political insight into what's happening at the highest level of DC politics your not going to find anywhere else. Christine Pelosi is an author. Her lawyer and someone who really lives eats in breeze democratic politics as an activist who spent a significant amount of the time training progressive candidates Congress. After having spent years working on the hill. We asked about her new book. The Nancy Pelosi way which just came out on Sky Horst publishing late last year in this interview. She shared a point story. That's not inside the book but which reveals just how far back and how dedicated Christine is to the progressive. 'cause that story and quite a bit of our conversation and is about the Middle East since we spoke right after news broke that trump's struck down the top Iranian general sparking an international crisis. Here's my fascinating interview with elected. DNC member Christine below see. I'm here with Christine Pelosi. She's she's the chair of the California Women's Democratic Caucus an attorney and an activist mother whose new book the Nancy Pelosi Way just got released by Sky Horse publishing last month Christine. Thank you so much for joining me on the PODCAST. How are you today? I'm well. I'm very concerned about Friends who have family and loved ones runs in Iran as well as members of our military families who are seeing loved ones redeployed to the Middle East this time surrounding getting the president's Air Strikes so I'm concerned about that. I'm glad we have a strong voice for peace since Speaker Pelosi at the helm in the house. And I'm hoping that everyone who has been part of the resistance will will rise up with one voice and say no war in Iran. Let's jump into that subject And shot her around the world at Baghdad. International Airport last night a president trump assassinated Iran's second most powerful official almost immediately quote unquote world. War Three started trending on twitter but in this country the power to declare wars vested in Congress in strictly. Your personal opinion did trump overstepped his bounds by carrying out an act of I guess war against Iran Iran regardless of the lower level. The Eagle Justifications. His team is professing. After the fact Donald Trump should have consulted with Congress and he should have consulted and salted with our allies before not after the assassination of the Irani General Presidents Bush and Obama. uh-huh had both received actionable intelligence On the same Iranian general and other leaders in Iran and specifically specifically and deliberately decided not to take them out despite the ability logistical ability to do so and the strong desire to combat terrorism. So you have to ask yourself. Does this administration. which up until last week was attacking trashing rushing members of the intelligence community and career foreign service officials within the United States government as the deep state? Suddenly you have a plan with respect. Our allies with respect to the region and of course with respect to the diplomatic surge that is going to be so essential to make sure that this does not escalate into outright war between Iran and the United States of America. Again speaking for yourself only Do you think trump assassinated this general. Because it's a massive distraction to his impeachment trial. I think it's really unfair. Consider wore a distraction. I think that we want to say he might want to divert attention. But let's be careful about using that word distraction because you know there are people whose lives are at risk because of what he's doing the most important job of the president is to be the commander in chief and as I said yesterday morning actually radio interview about the Nancy Pelosi way what we expect from our commander in chief is someone who walks into any mission now. This was before the air strikes but said in walks into any mission. You have to have a plan you have to have coalitions. You have to have diplomacy and you have to have an exit strategy. Those are the four elements that are absolutely essential. We didn't have them in Afghanistan under president. Bush we didn't have them in the world choice in Iraq under President Bush. And we certainly don't have them now with the bombing in Iraq by president trump. So it's vitally important that we show people two things one. The president is impeached. He was impeached because he abused his power by failing to execute the law that he signed to provide bipartisan. Hi Partisan military aid to Ukraine and then covered it up and then instructed his administration officials to cover it up and it's important to note that he's engaged in the same activity with Iran that he did with respect to Ukraine which is to say to go rogue for his own political purposes press' without consulting Congress and in violation of international laws and norms. So this is very important for people to see that same conduct that got him to pee. Impeached with respect to Ukraine is being displayed with respect to Iran. Do you think that this impeachment impeachment trial of coming GONNA be fair. You know because right now. It looks like McConnell's shifting things around and even though there's new evidence obviously that's it's been presented that Putin advised trump on Ukraine and he took his word for it. And you know there's obviously the Pentagon thought that what he was doing was illegal. Goldman also proof that Dolinsky told Senator Murphy that You know he is absolutely pressured by trump in that respect to investigating investigating Biden Do you think that any of this is going to tilt the Senate trial to make it a fair trial instead of bent towards proving trump's innocence. There's no way to prove trump's innocence. No matter what they do he may be able to convince the Republicans to not remove him from office. But that doesn't change the fact that he was impeached doesn't change the fact that he abused his power. The only thing that will give impartial justice is public sentiment and so it's really important as speaker Pelosi always says quoting Abraham Lincoln public sentiment. It is everything it's very important. That people call their senators and insist on fair rules For the Senate trial it is very important that people continue to clarify the facts through this fog of war the facts about Iran and the facts about Ukraine. Because what we will find over and over and over again is an effort by Mitch McConnell to coordinate with Donald Trump. The only thing that will change that is if in Mitch McConnell's estimation he might lose power if he feels that his Senate Republicans are under great intense public pressure to allow witnesses. He'll change course and tell the president we've got to have some witnesses but that's the only thing that's going to matter. Is People calling their senators riding their senators speaking out about the facts. Not just just calling for impartial justice but reminding people what it looks like and what those witnesses you're saying and in the meantime let's also understand that the courts are very very strong and their rulings. There's another set of hearings going on today. With the Department of Justice lawyers who were being hammered in court art by the judges who are saying this. Is You know basically suspicious argument that you don't have to comply with Congress so again. McConnell was quoted as saying houses done enough damage. It's time to end things. But the fact of the matter is the damage was being done to our Constitution the to Shin and to our rule of law by Donald Trump and by Mitch McConnell and the only thing that will change that is if Republicans fear that they will lose Senate seats and Mitch McConnell sees. He's he's majority in trouble he will hit..

"Why am having them on my show. And the answer is, we want to talk about electric cars. We want to talk about tesla. We want to talk about whether it is the car of the future or not. And what, what all this current electric discussion means? So we'll also talk about tesla and it's ups and downs. So you'll join me from eight to nine just wanted to give you the heads up on that. Now I have to tell you I walked in tonight. I have so many things to talk about coming in at the six o'clock hour, the five o'clock hour, I listened to CNN and I listened to an interview that Anderson Cooper did, and I was so outraged that I completely flipped what I was going to do. We won't do this more than a half an hour because I've got a lot to cover. Night. But did you hear that Facebook said today, and their spokesperson affirmed tonight on CNN that a video doctored to depict house speaker, Nancy Pelosi slurring her words grunk, if you will will remain on the social media network. Because listen to this false information alone does not violate the sites rule. This is what this is what they're saying, and I quote, we remove things from Facebook that violate our community standards, but we don't have a policy that stipulates that the information you post on Facebook must be true. Did you hear me say that I was so angry? I can't believe it so you can post phony information and Facebook won't take it down. Even if it's fake even if it's falls. Facebook said it will however, greatly reduced distribution of a video among Facebook users news feeds, and any context, a from a to third party fact, checkers who dean bit false after Facebook asked him to review it one of the two fact checkers point fact, gave the video, it's pants on fire description reserved for the most agree GIS falsehoods making ridiculous claims. Now, I want to ask you a question. Do you agree with me that Facebook ought to take this down right now? I mean, I just can't believe it is unbelievable to me, how can a company that is socially responsible, theoretically, keep a post up about the speaker of the house of representatives, or anybody. That is false. I want I want to know what you think now Google subsidiary. Youtube made a different decision saying in a statement YouTube has clear policies that outline what content is not acceptable to post, and we remove videos violating those policies when flagged to us, these videos violent our policy and have been removed. They also do not surface prominently. In fact, search results and watch next panels about Nancy Pelosi include videos from authoritative, sources, usually the top four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten let me tell you something. I'm angry. I'm angry because Facebook, which many of us use, many of you communicate with me on Facebook. Many of you send me messages on Facebook. It's inexcusable now. I want you to know that a Nancy Pelosi daughter. The filmmaker acclaimed filmmaker Christine Pelosi. Said that this is despicable that fake videos, depicting, her mother slurring words and acting intoxicated is despicable. And you know what? She's right. Four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten in a second message. Christine Pelosi shared a hateful message received from a supporter of President Trump, who accused the speaker of hating America and questioning her alcohol use and this is what Christine Pelosi said. This is the kind of thing I'm talking about. I'm cleaning it up. Reporting to Facebook, which, like, Twitter will not suspend an account that clearly violated terms of service. Obviously, the doesn't this doesn't stop me, but others are affected by the voter depression strategy. The Crump allies are perpetrating four one five, eight zero eight zero. I'll go. I don't want to do this for a long time. I just wanted to throw this out because let me tell you something if I make a mistake on the air, I'm more than happy, as you all know to correct it. If I play something that's phony or fake. I'm going to correct it because you're listening to me, and your counting, maybe don't agree with my opinion, but I don't want you to question my honesty. Now, here's the thing, Facebook attracts millions upon millions upon millions of listeners, don't you think that Facebook and readers and social messaging? Don't you agree with me that the minute Facebook knew this was phony? They ought to take it down. I mean this is this is well let's find out from Joe. He's calling from rohnert park. Joe welcomed the KGAN. Hey there, how are you? I'm great job. Thanks for calling. You know, I was saying I, I don't I don't blame for not taking it down. I think that there's so many video out there that are put up for sure humor, you know, they're all third to make people laugh. They're altered to make people believe thirteen thing and I think we're we're getting a little bit tunnel vision. In fact that if political so people are saying they should take it down. Well, you know, it's not it's not an appropriate. It's not true. It's not true. She she the video was altered, it's designed to make her look drunk, if they did that to Donald Trump who by the way to his credit. I believe does not drink. I b as indignant why should Facebook, which is a responsible agent? Put something up that they know is phony, and fake. Well to me. It for humor. It's not base was used to attack while Nancy Pelosi. Right. And I think that, like I said, we're getting tunnel visioned in the fact that it's a political fake video. So people are more about it. I haven't heard anybody get upset when, you know, somebody poked, the video, where an animal dip appears into a hole indicating that the animal maybe died, you know. When do I, I don't know, when the animal goes into the whole, whether it's died or not? But I do know that the fake tape about Nancy Pelosi. Is is absolutely wrong. You can't distort it person in that fashion. It's about all the videos. What about all the videos better out there, where people video of somebody talking? But then it's, it's it subtitled over. So they're saying something different is Facebook will take all those videos down, and all the videos army you're saying, all of this. What's soon Joe that you had a video up on Facebook. And somebody purposely distorted it slowed, it down made it sound like you were irrational or brung, wouldn't you be furious? I'd be here. Yes. But I made sure that I also made sure that I posted the original video or something done, but it doesn't counter if you give misinformation and you post something and people keep looking at it. Millions of people have looked at it. It becomes fact I gotta tell you Joe with all due respect, I'm going to disagree if they know it's falls, and I know it's falls and she knows it's falls. They ought to take it down four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten you tell me, Casey says Facebook seems to make major errors on a regular basis. When they're made aware that video is probably clearly false and harmful, they should remove the mmediately and I gotta tell you. You're absolutely right. There's no excuse. Four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten. This comes from Karen Facebook has never been socially responsible. They help us get Trump. They're driven by money. Our country is such a mess. I'm at a loss where will it end? I'll tell you one thing. I really believe this. When you do something, this irresponsible, when Facebook does something this irresponsible? It puts in jeopardy what it is Mark Zuckerberg. Are you listening? If I had marks home phone number I'd, give them a call and ask him. I don't want to hear his spokesperson. I wanna how he explained something like this four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten David calling from San Jose. David, welcome to GO. Hey, how's it going, John? I'm great. So the thing is Facebook has never as far as I'm aware of build themselves as a new agency. They've never made any promises therefore to report, factual stories, or or promote factual stories. They they've, they've never had that claim. Oh, no. They take things down. They take things down. And the spokesperson set it on the air, they're very careful. They things down based on what they wanna have, and what they don't want to have because they are a private entity. Then how about what's true? And what's false? It's defamation of character speech has nothing to do with factor fiction. That's let's forget about free speech for a minute. And I don't mean that in a little. ESPN question. If you are running a multibillion dollar operation and you post something and you know that it's false. It's not a matter of free speech. All I guess they have the right to do it. But if you were Mark Zuckerberg, and you were trying to be responsible, and they're already questions about the responsibility of Facebook, wouldn't you say, okay, it's false? We know it's doctored. We're going to take it down. No, not at all. Because number one Facebook themselves in post it and number two, it's it there's takes thing. They have the freedom to go ahead and keep that up there. But they're very new things down that if you put something that's hate filled. They will take it down. I believe detecting somebody in that fashion when, you know, it's false is hate filled. All right. I understand. I, I don't agree with you. What, what can I tell you, my wrong? Am I wrong? You tell me Christina calling from Livermore. Dana welcome to GO. I, I think you are wrong in the sense that nowadays, it's.

"Happy. They still say there are questions to answer. And they don't trust the story that has come out enough four page resume. I've been speaking to US Democratic Party strategies, Christine Pelosi. I also though why she thinks it isn't just a total triumph for Trump. But we've had today is the attorney general's report what we need is the Muller report. And so what will be very important for the American people is Robert Muller appearing before the congress of the United States explaining the conclusions. That he drew the closure inside he did draw. And of course, the American people could judge for ourselves. What happened with respect to the fact that there were? A number of people in Russia who were trying to throw the election for Donald Trump and twenty sixteen and there were a series of events that as was put in the bar letter did not exonerate the president. We'd like to know what they were. She that's quite interesting because that's kind of muddying the waters is neat. I mean, surely if Mr. Trump did what you've just done you would accuse him of a fibbing because the argument isn't over whether Russia interfered, it's whether there was collusion with the Russian interference. And the top line still remains no collusion. Well to be precise. What we've heard from the bar report is that they couldn't prove collusion with US Pacific. Agency within the government had Russia. It doesn't mean that he didn't collude with individual. To find out the report, and then we'll know doesn't it actually suggests that a given many many chances to pick up evil tidbits about Hillary Clinton. They never did. So the campaign at any moment, they actually behaved exactly how you would expect the Democrats to behave in such a situation. Well, again, we'll have to find out when we when we read the report and having been an attorney on Capitol Hill after nine eleven and after the nine eleven report was released with significant reductions with respect to the role of Saudi Arabia that to this day have harmed its credibility. I think it's very important that we get the full report with reductions to protect sources and methods of intelligence, but not with political reductions to protect the president. Right. Give us an idea of what that procedure actually is as you've just outlined. There's a four page summary by someone else that's been made available. What actually happens next bearing in mind that the Democrats now do have power? On Capitol Hill to call to to a rain to decide to to hold talks. What actually happens what are the chances that representatives will actually see the full report, you think, well, I think the chances are very high, you know, the four hundred twenty members of congress last week voted for concurrent resolution twenty four which indicated that the Muller reports should be made public with subject to the the professional intelligence. React reductions, I mentioned that includes one hundred ninety Republicans what will happen is that chairman, Jerry Nadler of the judiciary committee will subpoena. Attorney general bar. He will also subpoena special counsel, Robert Muller, and he will also subpoena the report, and then the question becomes who shows up at my today say even if at that point. The administration decides to backtrack and not release. The report there are other ways to get it through the courts. And of course, Robert Muller remembers what he wrote. So you'd have another opportunity to have him testify as to its content. So that's the procedure. What will happen? They will. I issue an invitation to testify, and if that invitation is declined, then they would have to issue a subpoena, and that we will find out from there when that conversation will be presented to the American people. Well, that's US democrat party strategist Christine Pelosi on why she doesn't think this is a triumph for Mr. Trump. Mr. Trump thinks it's a triumph, of course. Title still.

And so I was allowed to make my transition report actually a point of personal privilege to make my report. And then make some other comments which talked about the role of black first of all the role that I played in the party since Ron Brown was chair, and then the role that black women have played in the party for since we became Democrats, litigation of these labels of progressive and who's more progressive and who's more liberal and who's more left and who's more center as if those labels define who we are as Democrats was problematic at all.

Now, we are happy with the people that we elect, but where's the money?

Now, we are happy with the people that we elect, but where's the money? When is the party going to invest in the African American community commensurate with the way that the community invest in the party, and that was my point. This remember one year ago tonight, what we were celebrating those of us and the Democratic Party was reading the election of Doug Jones down in Alabama because black women a historic turnout record. Nah. On October twenty fifth two thousand five Mignon got a phone call from a woman who had been a longtime friend of Rosa Parks who had died just the day before this woman had a request that sent the color girls into action, and you all pulled off an amazing feat that involved Southwest Airlines Condoleeza Rice, the first black president of Cal State, Los Angeles, a dose of gender discrimination and a bible. So you can tell us what happened. What color groundbreaking accomplishment was we can all feed into this story. She's right. I did get a call from Elaine parks. And she was MRs parks longtime caretaker, and when MRs parks came to Washington, we often had the opportunity to sit with her listen to her and most of the time we hit or in our homes, you know, because it wasn't like they had a bunch of money. So after she passed, Elaine them wanted to have a memorial service in Washington because she had spent so much time there, and so when she started talking about this memorial service. She said we're going to bring the family, and we want to have we want to have her lion. Stay and we want to have this. And we're going to Dan flyer from Alabama. And so, you know me. I'm like a budget hawk. And like I say, so what is your budget around this? You know? So that was like a stupid question. So that's when I knew I might. Did did did Lia. Did did did did did did Donna Tina who's not year? And so the four of us the five of us came together because we thought it was so incredibly important that this woman left with dignity, and the fact that she was able to lie in state. Speaker pelosi. Yep. Now, tell me a woman came run this world. That's right. Right. Tell me. Chelsea the speaker yesterday by chance I'm we go go back to Rosa. She's yes. Okay. You know, we like people like that just so, you know, but anyway, so Donna, call Condie kinda got the plane Lear hit the DNC budget, and she wrote them checks checks legally. You know, what was important charging a budge? Yeah. So you know, what was important about that? We didn't Jess had a funeral service. Leah ended up having like the story. She'll tell you about the story about the bible, we became Russia's. Now. There was one funny moment, it wasn't really funny at the time. So when the body GATT to the church left to capitol left to capitol hit this long procession, thousands of people. And so the body finally got to the church, and we had on these little walkie talkie things bodies arriving bodies arriving. So we go out I go out now Donna's the earth. And this is how we are. We will take off all these titles and do what we have to do on the podium you landed and Tina day. So I'm out there. And so I'm waiting for the gentlemen to bring. The body out. You know, so I'm like, okay. So okay. Here's the church take it up the steps. And they're looking at me like, ma'am, we can't do that. And I'm like, what do you mean? You can't do that. It's not our jurisdiction. Were they from the capital? So they couldn't transfer the body. No pallbearers in. No, we had to run inside we needed them. Because to I was gonna round inside get to color girls with their heels on if we had to take that body in that. But then we had to get the ROTC. So. But Rosa Parks. I hope you all know her. She genuine. No, no, we places. Yeah. Your man said Jesse ran for president remember? Oh, yeah. So no, Rosa Parks was a genuine hero from Alabama who refuse one day December first nineteen fifty five to get up and she was arrested because she would not go to the back of the bus. We wanted to give her as close of a state funeral as possible, and we did her prowl. And it was a bipartisan moment, you know. That's why I say the color girls is a very inclusive club because it was a girl. One of my most vivid memories that day. Pelosi had arranged for MRs Parker lion state. But she also arranged for for the members to come into UC to come to the service. And when she got these buses for members of congress to come to the service and the first person off that bus was Nancy Pelosi. Come to pay her respects at metropolitan AME church.

We needed them because I was gonna run inside get color girls with the heels on if we have to. Take that body in that church. But then we had to get the ROTC. Eighty ROTC. But Rosa Parks. I hope you all know her. She genuine. No, no you. Places. Yeah. This young man said Jesse ran for president remember? Oh, yeah. So no, Rosa Parks was a genuine hero from Alabama who refuse one day December first nineteen fifty five to get up and she was arrested because she would not go to the back of the bus. We wanted to give her as close of a state funeral as possible. We did her prow, and it was a bipartisan moment. You know? That's why I say the color girls is a very inclusive club because kind it was a girl. One of my most vivid memories that day. Speaker Pelosi had arranged for MRs parks to lie in state, but she also arranged for for the members to calm into UC to come to the service. And when she got these buses for members of congress to come to the service and the first person off that bus was Nancy Pelosi. To come to pay her respects at metropolitan AME church. Another Rosa Parks.

"That Durant was really quite affordable in Toronto because I've lived everywhere in the states, and like, New York, and San Francisco, Brent crazy. It was pretty affordable. And then I was thinking of doing this. And then at the university of Toronto, there's a whole migration study institute. And I was like, okay. That's amazing. Dan, Nancy, Pelosi's chief of staff sent me an Email saying we would love to invite you as an official guests for Donald Trump's first joint session with congress. And I know you went back and forth on that. I know. Pelosi by the way, I don't care if you're Republican or Democrat Nancy Pelosi does not get the respect she deserves. She just does not does not I was astounded. I know her because I used to be a report at the Washington Post that used to cover her when I was a political reporter. And of course, I'm from here. So I know Nancy Pelosi, but I wish wishes reminded by her daughter Christine Pelosi that time magazine had not put her on the cover until like three months ago. I been on the cover of time magazine what like that woman. Well, she's again, I don't care what your political party is. I think a lot of his practice ageism and sexism, of course, in this country, but that woman is formidable. So she knew what she was doing me. She invited me she was doing. But I haven't said this person yet. But that Email inviting me was like the kick in the head I needed to stop looking at Toronto. Like, how dare I leave? So I went to DC, and that was one of her guests, and then I started writing this book, and when I was writing, and I didn't have a place. So for the first time since I was eighteen years old. I was living off like friends couches and Airbnb so I actually wrote the book while I was moving around. That's the book is written the way that it's written. I wanted to capture the rhythm of being transient of not having a place of a life. That's kind of on the run. So that's why I wrote it the way that I wrote it is there. There's no perfect solution for immigration. But if we're the Super Bowl of countries we want to go to the Super Bowl where the big ticket here. Everyone wants to come in here. There has to be a logical way to allow people in Democrats Republicans you say, you're you're neither political party. Nope. Not your design away an open border..
