Really stunning news. Thanks for the report dirk that's Dirk

Trump, Biden Campaigns Unveil Bold New Mouth Sounds
"There's just four months left until the twenty twenty election and both Democrats and Republicans are ramping up messaging to make their case to the American public. Before November third while many have already chosen their preferred candidate in this especially polarized political landscape, there are still millions of undecided voters waiting for more information on each side's coughs, hard swallows, Lips Max, and throat clears here to discuss the mouth sounds at the forefront of each campaign is OPR. OPR political correspondent Dirk. Mullins, good morning. Dirk I leslie it sounds like both campaigns are beginning to ramp up ahead of this month conventions. That's right this week. The Joe Biden campaign released. The first of dozens of new mouth sounds they say constitute the backbone of the former vice presidents platform based on what we know from his recent interviews Democrats as a whole are eager for fresh new teeth, clatters and Boulder Saliva swishing take a listen. These are certainly new sounds from Biden. But I'm still hearing the broad Fleming us that makes them appealing to centrist Democrats as well as moderate Republicans. What about trump? Well, we're all familiar with President, trump's lowered wet displays of Brash burps, slobber and stuff to Sinus, rasps that have made him. So popular with his base and it looks like not much has changed for twenty twenty. So while the president is firing back against Biden, he's using the same inflammatory gurgles spit ups. We've come to expect here's trump speaking at a White House luncheon just two days ago. Certainly as wet, but the real question is, will it work for that? We'll have to wait until November right now. Biden, is leading trump in some key states and trump may need to soften his position on swirling coughed up snot around in his mouth if he wants to maintain his already tenuous hold on white suburban women, many of whom say Biden's overly moist inhales better aligned with their values, right. But our democratic leaders concerned that Biden's middle of the road mouth sounds could act as a double edged sword appealing to the middle while pushing away progressives who don't want more of the same that. That is a concern while Biden has a long history of neutral centrist mouth sounds his team hopes these new swishes and swallows will entice voters farther on the left who demand dryer sticky. Your mouth sounds and do progressively agree it appears so Bernie. Sanders, drew in huge numbers of young progressives who preferred his brand of spittle flecked tongue slaps and cracked lip wheezing. But with Bernie out of the race, now Biden's team is seeking to make space for these voters by taking on some of Bernie's mouth sounds just this week. The Biden campaign added this Fleming snort from burn himself to their website. You can really hear his lips parting, the sea ever drink water. It's unclear though he's publicly announced. He would be willing to drink water and Abidin Administration. Well, all I can say is I'm so sick of all these nasty sounds playing on my TV, I can't wait till this election is over share. But then before you know it, it's already time for the first mouth sounds twenty, twenty, four. Oh, boy, you're telling me. Thanks Turk. Dirk.

You can't tell one candidate from the other underneath all the mud slinging but as we approach the twenty twenty presidential election some major players are stepping up to bring back civilized discourse Russian Internet trolls. The same ones known for interfering in the two thousand sixteen presidential election have recently made a pledge to run a completely positive disinformation campaign at twenty twenty joining us now is opr. Washington correspondent Dirk mullins silently. So why are these trolls deciding to run a cleaner? Deception campaign twenty. Twenty hackers and trolls are tired of how militias and unproductive political disinformation tactics have become an America and want the vitriol taken back out of toppling the democratic process I spoke with a member of the Kremlin linked Internet research agency WHO I call Victor. In order to protect his identity off the two thousand sixteen. We recognized that we are becoming bought of his problem. Positive lies a more civilized exchange of false negatives. This is what we are aspiring to to spread. Do Americans in twenty twenty election interesting approach. But how will this affect their campaign strategy this year? Victor says trolls will still be using the same methods we saw in twenty sixteen but in the future thereabouts micro targeting and deep fake videos will focus on spreading fake hope rather than manufactured outrage. We would blame Benghazi on Hewlett. You look up. Look her up. Yeah so mean so negative. This year we will just fell nicely is like say Donald Trump going to Afghanistan on a covert mission and killing an Isis leader with his bare hands or pretending. Automotive and coal industries are doing well now. Those allies every American can get behind while he sounds very dedicated to this turnaround. Well to a lot of hackers like victor. It's more than just a job in public deception. It's something they're very passionate about. This is no sense of decency and forty six anymore. How can I go home at night? And I'm looking my kids in the I when I am sure in memes of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer bearing pile of aborted fetuses. Yes I want to make descent in American democracy but that doesn't mean wall sense of Quantum Chris to be lost and in that spirit. Hackers will no longer link candidates to fake pedophile rings on twitter. But we'll share more respectable memes that are bold and forward thinking like claiming that candidate is extremely viral and has slept with over five hundred men and women that is certainly more optimistic and inspiring but what have been the result so far. Is this new disinformation going viral? Oh it's an incredible success with Americans. Those dumb asses will believe anything they read online. Well sounds like the Republicans and Democrats could learn a thing or two from the Russian operatives dead set on destroying democracy. Thank you Dirk my pleasure.
