Why You Should Never Vote for a Democrat

"So. If you're like me, you've noticed a change in the weather. It's a little cooler especially in the morning time that means that it's time for FAW to roll around. Cool weather means change wardrobe. Go to the real Jim Green dot com slash Amazon fall. To pick up your new fall wardrobe you know them Amazon. Top of the food chain go there browse pick up your new. Nice. Warm clothing. The Real Jim Green dot com slash Amazon fall. So am I tire adult life. I have heard this phrase over and over and over again from the media and from political. Candidates. That this is the most important election of our lifetime right of her debt a meeting times. never really quite bought into it. But I gotTA. Tell you this time around I. Believe it's real. If there is a time in political history that we have to a completely different ideologies on the table. It's twenty twenty. So. This is. The top reasons why? You should vote. For the Democratic Party now if you. have had your eyes open. Your Heart Open. You know. The corruption of the Democratic Party runs deep. You know. That these. This media. Does, mainstream media monstrosity is full of corruption as well in is running. Interference for all of this corruption and sickness that we see in the Democratic Party I don't have to tell you that. But when I look at these candidates. When I look at these issues. is becoming more and more clear to me. That nobody should vote for these people. Are there some good Democrats in Democratic Party? Yes, you do. You have some yes. But when you look at the issues that they support. That they, the policies that they push that they fight for. Illegally and legally. You. Have to if you have half a heart. Half, a brain you have to say, I cannot vote for these people. These are a few reasons why you shouldn't vote for them number one. Corrupt ties. To China Russia. And Ukraine. Now you know it's funny because. You guys remember the whole Russia thing the whole Russia Russian collusion. Trump has had help from Russia to get elected. That's how he beat Hillary Clinton. You guys already know the story. Well guess what. When it actually start doing the digging. Guess they came up with. Was Russian collusion. It was the Democrats was colluding with the Russians To Take on trump? Out. Story. Did I'm looking at. From the hill now, I'm gonNA use one thing I'll about being here on the Real Jim Green is I actually get to. US News Clips That are old. They go back in their old seek his face because this thing where they want to make you look irrelevant if you posting oil article. We don't have to worry about that here. One of the wonderful things about having your own podcast but anyway. Up this story from the hill February tenth. Twenty nineteen. Is says. Here. As Secretary of State Hillary Clinton work with Russian leaders. Including foreign. Sergei Lavrov. And then president Dmitry. Medvedev. To create us as technology partnerships with Moscow? The version of Silicon Valley, a sprawling high tech campus known as Skolko. Clinton's handprint was everywhere in the twenty. Two thousand nine two thousand project. The tip of the diplomatic speer to reboot US rushing relations after years of hostility prompted by Vladimir Putin's army military action against the former Soviet republic and now US ally Georgia. Johnny gets right to the meat of this article. It says right here it says this week we learned from Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr. Artsy that his committee came to the same conclusion at the house. There is no evidence of collusion between the trump campaign and Russia. But now there is growing evidence of democratic connections to Russia. It's enough that former House intelligence committee chairman, Devon Nunez Republican for California believes a probe should be opened. There is obvious collusion. The Democrats had through Glenn Simpson and through fusion GPS. That they were talking directly to Russia. Nunez told. He'll. TV's rising star I'm sorry TV rising. In interview to be aired Monday. Several, articles like this. Where the Russian collusion is actually. Coming from the Democratic Party. Day SPA AID ON A. Private citizen of what's Don Donald Trump was at the time he wasn't political opponent. He was a political opponent, but he was a private citizen. They used Russia to spy on a private citizen not if that doesn't scare you. I don't know what will. If. They're willing to go to these links. Just to win an election. Then We must be scared. No what are we have now? We have China involved. We have leaks to China just like we have links to Russia. Okay We have links to the Ukraine. Links between presidents who candidate former vice president Joe Biden and Ukraine who is currently under investigation. And Run for President United States. That is of. Concern. Number two. Track record. Of attacking religious freedom and specifically Judeo Christian. Now I gotTa Tell You I wanNa tell you like this is I'm giving you. This is not in any particular order until we get to number one. When we get to number one, that's the real reason why? You shouldn't vote. For the Democratic Party. So, let me continue. The track record. Of the Democratic Party. Attacking religious freedom. Not just generally. But very specifically as in against Judeo Christian. Values. Churches. Organizations. This again is a very well documented fact. In fact, a national review article. Confirms this. It says on Monday. On Monday. The Supreme Court ruled six to three that the nineteen sixty four civil. Rights Act Prohibition on sexual. Discrimination. In Employment also prohibits such discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and transgender status. None of take what this is, and this is something that's been ongoing particularly for the last Four years. Since trump got an office it seemed to ratchet up when he got in there. because. Why? Because he's a staunch believer in religious rites of US Americans. So. What this means is. It's a nother attempt to force. A group. On. Christianity. That Christianity plainly and simply teaches as immoral. The act of. TRANSGENDERISM lesbianism homosexualism. Is. An Act that God has condemned in. The book that Christians use the word of God. Now, this is a whole nother debate. But. On I plainly see where the word of God has specifically. said. that. These things are not to be done. But we have the Democratic Party. Fighting. To legislate, morality. While they're telling. US. That we can't legislate morality. Just threw that one in there for free. Attack after attack after attack, you remember a few years back. There was an attack also. You guys are going to turn over your sermon notes to us because we wanna see what you're preaching. No. In his funny because these people want to talk about separation of church and state right. But. When we say. We want you to turn over something you need to turn over something. You're remember a few years back also that they wanted to the financial records of all the churches. Now. I'M GONNA to be honest with you it. It turned out that these prosperity preachers were under fire for that and I'm fine with that. But. The fact that they just suddenly Chuck Grassley suddenly wants. These records in expect us to comply. But they will still WanNa talk about Church and state. Is Super Crecy. In these these attempts. Attempts for them to force us. To hire. The lgbt community to affirm them to say as not saying, these are all attempts attacks on religious freedom we can preach the word of God. As we want to. Without fear of. Government. Interference. But here comes Democratic Party. Trying. To take that away from us. This is why you should vote for them. If you are particularly, here's here's the gist of this. If, you just want. Religious Freedom in general. Of course, you shouldn't but specifically if you are a Christian. You should never vote for them in. This is just one of the reasons why you shouldn't vote for them in regard to how they attack the church number three. While we're here. The promotion. Of the LGBT agenda, which now seeks to normalize pedophilia. Now I want say something because right now there's a, there's a controversial film out. Call, cuties. On netflix. There's there's talk about. This film which features eleven year olds. Dancing provocatively in sexually suggestively. Won The Sundance, award For. Best Film. How did we get here? I'll tell you how we got here. We got here legislatively. We got here on the tails of. The rise of NAMBLA, the North American man Boy Love Association. We got here on details of the. LGBT. Agenda. As is articulated in a document called the game manifesto. That's how we got here. Legislation. From what side? The left, of course. I was a there was a ted talk that went on about two years ago. That was very disturbing to me And I'll pull up the name of the speaker but. She was speaking. On how Pedophilia Is Normal. How we should look at it. Normally. The American psychological society. About four years ago. Changed the status of. Pedophilia. Basically to. Normal Guess WHO's behind this push? Democrat Party. No I will say this I will say that in in regards to. Homosexuality in general. Between adults. Hey, if that's your thing. I'm GonNa Preach The Gospel to you. That's me 'cause you need Jesus. Just like the thief needs Jesus. dislike the adulterer needs Jesus. Unique Jesus. That's Monaco nine but. When you cross the line. To in to involve. Underage Children. Into your homosexual activity. And you try to legislate it I'm sorry I'm calling you eagle. In if the Democrats, believe that this should be okay. We should label them as evil to. Now. The next one. Situation. Day support the sexualization of children. In America. There was a kid came out. This kid was A. because he was thirteen years old caused desmond is amazing. He ended up on ABC's good. Morning America guests for what? They found his kid. His mother. was taking him to gay bars. And allowed him to dance. For Tips. They brought him on to WHO Good Morning America to affirm his gayness and celebrated. If you look in. The U. S. Army just what's going on as far as was happening right now with this cutie state. The sexualizing our children. In now in California S B One forty five just past stating that. Within a ten year range. A man or woman who? Sexually assaults a child. Doesn't have to register as a sex offender. And as long as the child was okay with it. There's nothing nothing to see here. The, California legislature. Should be ashamed of themselves. How can you create a law? That supports. Any interaction. Between a man or or or a woman and a child. I don't understand it. I don't understand how they sleep at night I. Don't get it. There has to be an interrupted moral compass broken moral compass in order for them to be okay with this zero Jim Charlotte Charlotte and a lot of sexual stuff. I'm looking at it in the context of our children. This is what keeps me up at night. Now suppose you have something you Wanna put together you want to do a logo you gotta website you WanNa build you. WanNa, do a blog. He got some video editing anything like that any digital type of projects. How about looking into fiber fiber is a group of fast affordable designers, topnotch creators that will put together what you need them to put together for you and they are very affordable. Go to the Real Jim. Green dot com slash five or that's F. I v. e. r. r. for all of your digital needs. FIBER DOT COM. Now the next reason why you do not want to vote Democrat is the fact that. Are Most dangerous cities are most economically impoverished cities are cities that are overrun with illegal immigrants and homelessness and drug addiction are Democrat run cities are cities that have been in the control of the Democrats in many cases, several decades. We're just now really seeing the fruits of what they have wrought upon these cities. Fact. The ten American. Cities for homelessness are, sanctuary cities. which offer to refuge to illegal immigrants do not cooperate with federal law enforcement. And raise the price of low rent housing for their citizens. In this group are Los Angeles with fifty, five, thousand homeless. Seattle with twelve thousand homeless San Diego with nine thousand homeless San Jose with seven thousand and San. Francisco was six thousand as well as Las Vegas with six thousand. Is a very big problem in America. The problem is. We have democratic mayors. Running them. We have Democrat representatives overseeing those mayors. Playing, the nose on your face one of these people doing seven of the ten. Appear in another study. Of America's top twenty, five most dangerous cities. Here, other cities. Kansas City Little Rock Arkansas. Milwaukee Rockford Illinois Albuquerque Spring Crew Missouri Indianapolis San Bernardino Anchorage Nashville Lansing New Orleans Minneapolis Chicago Houston Hartford Connecticut. Chattanooga. And Beaumont Texas in. We drop in a couple more with Birmingham Atlanta an buffalo. Top twenty five most dangerous cities. Democrat led. Poverty race between eighteen and thirty nine percent when the national average is twelve point three. What'd these people doing? How are they enriching? The lives of the people. What other policies that have wrought this up on the people? Their job is to Enrich the lives of the citizens of whatever city there in I say they're doing a horrible job. Horrible. In the list of the least healthy cities. Based on available healthcare and clean environment and personal fitness. The I includes. Detroit. MEMPHIS. Brownsville. Laredo. Augusta Georgia. Shreveport Louisiana Gulfport. Fort Smith Arkansas. Jackson Missouri at Corpus, Chris Christie Texas all led by Democrat mayors, except for Corpus Christi Christie and Gulfport. Is. This is real. This is real I don't. I, hear listen to me listen to me. The this year. If, you know anything about if you if you if you listen to my podcast With the WHO is Jim Green, you know that I came from a family of Democrats Black Democrats who told me Look you just go in and vote Democrat because there for us? And so I used to vote all the way down. Guess what? You're listening to the best case scenario. For for voting read. This November. You think they're going to change these policies. Of course they're gonNA promise this what they do every four years they show up in promises. That they're going to do something and then what happens. Nothing, of course. Decades of failed policies. Result in failed cities. Now does next one. Should really hit home home with you. Because it was happening in our country right now. Come came out recently. And said that. Derives are not, GONNA stop. Do, not? GonNa stop. As if in even if we do get elected, they're not going to stop. This is the new normal. What does that say? To you. What does that say in the area of protecting the citizens of this country? Do you think they care. For the safety of the citizens of the United, states. If they are willing to tell you outright that these violent riots in there, we're not they're not protesters anymore saw video of. Quote Unquote. Protesters. Rider. Jumps up on top of a cops vehicle. Land the COP is trying to get away and drives off in person ends up on the ground claiming on. There's an example of police brutality hogwash. No They're in the streets. There blocking traffic. There Shooting People Beating people up. They've murder people. And Joe Biden and his running mate Commodore Harris are telling you that they're not to stop. Listen. Ted Wheeler. Portland's mayor. Is Out there protesting wisdom in fact he stood by while they set his own. A residence on fire. Do you is that somebody that you want to quote unquote protect you and keep you safe. They WANNA defunding police. This, this defunding police turns into disarmed. The police were turns into dismantle the police. Then what you what do you think is going to happen then I don't WANNA see. A street. Full Of. Democrats supporters. Who have decided to take to the streets of America to riot? That is all I am saying? The next reason why? You do not want to support. A Democrat now, you may take a different view on this than I do. But the issue of abortion. Is Plain and simple. Over sixty six. MILLION BABIES. Since Roe v way have been murdered. Without due. Process Without any guilt Without having committed anything. Other than just simply being born. The Democrats have proven that they will not only support. They will fund it and they will make taxpayers pay for it. Now. If you are a pro choice person. I don't understand why you would be but if you are pro choice person, then that's a separate issue. But. It's important that we understand. That abortion is murder. Murder of an unborn person. And we simply cannot. Stand by. A candidate. Were represent policies that continue to murder babies. My last and final one. Is the Democrats, support A totalitarian socialist government. Look at what's happening now. Look, what they've allowed to take place in our country. This does not look like. The America that I grew up in debt you many of you grew up in. Seat they can call it democratic socialism all they want socialism socialism. It's supposed to mean the means of production are socially collectively owned and controlled alongside of democratic political system of government sounds really good and smart doesn't it? But it always descends into the government having control. The citizens not having any personal property including not having guns. In always ends up in bloodshed and murder. Just look at the Russian gulags. If you don't think happened, Hey, they're they're sitting back while. American citizens our citizens are being slaughtered in our streets. Don't think for one minute that they won't continue this same type of policy. If they get in office. So now you choose. You choose. Who you will vote for in November. I'm not saying the Republicans are are perfect. Saying. Trump. Is Perfect. But what I am saying is. If you don't vote for trump. The other thing that you're going to be voting for are all these things that I've been talking about. And more. So all I want to say you is. Think.

PS T. so if you're not on the west coast sorry it's pretty late for you but you do get it you do get it the night before everyone else which is awesome and you get an ad free episode of it and claimed attorney client privilege when it came to the Roger Stone's stuff although that wouldn't cover that because it was pre inauguration so I'm I'm not quite clear owns case was handed off eventually and he might have testified to that grand jury about stone but mcgann also just might have been reticent to testify about that stuff and being questioned about obstruction of justice but it does make you wonder like why he wasn't questioned for other stuff yeah I do it's interesting because my y mcgann didn't testify to the grand jury about what he knew regarding Roger Stone which he may have been able to claim attorney client privilege for however St what about several times that how the grand jury rules pretty pretty clear we know that a grand jury can't be used unless it's in the pursuit of criminal charter my Boyfriend Ryan he's he cares about politics in news obviously but he sees not constantly intellect I am and when this headline came out he was confused as I'm sure a lot of people in the country not to be worshiped yes we have candles rosaries and we love Muller and that's fun and that's Kitschy and that's interesting and I do think that he is going to historically be one of the more important figures if not John's in the Crime Don's close to Deng for my liking meow or yeah or the dawn of a some sort of crime family so now we had suspected from confused as to why this is such a big deal why it's such a huge headline and it's interesting seeing the fallout also on twitter from people who are he could have been blocked from testifying to the grand jury had he been subpoenaed so it might it might have been work around for that as well but it does beg the question ages right and mcgann was a key figure in obstruction of which trump was the target the that was the only people they were looking at for obstruction of justice was trump could he and he you know just citing the cowering behind the LLC memo and it's just it's very interesting to me this spectrum of reactions that there are just pretend yeah and then also his testimony is what kicked off the impeachment. What I call the kickoff the impeachment inquiry when the Oversight Committee asked for the four I could not saved my sanity because I mean we have been really clear from the not from public reporting that junior didn't testify to the grand jury because he had taken the fifth and Muller alluded to that and the mole report I have thought there were some clues in the report that indicated Very Don Donald Trump would know about that and maybe be able to suborn perjury or intimidate the witness and also Geico but from at least I don't know most of this year and going into last year that Muller was not going to save us all he was not to be put on a pedestal suber experts I saw you get called out a jeep people saying that you know Muller Muller has fucked us all and he didn't you know didn't question these people have one of the most important figures in this situation because without him we wouldn't have had the knowing and willfully thing covered for people who can't right here but there's a lot of different avenues this could take I personally think that it's because of the grand jury stuff meaning you have to be pursuing charges and mcgann was I mean this is how we find support this is how we cope through creativity and humor and things like that to believe in someone like saying you know we had a podcast about Charles Manson and then being like I thought boy was awesome like when something bad happened with Charles Manson injury materials under Article One powers of impeachment and those are the grand jury materials from Muller and then also we have multiple obstruction of justice charges and a map to to get to amy tiny piece of the Pie Watch the pizza video if you haven't seen it yet we have some released McCabe documents now these aren't from Reggie Walton that's the veteran judge to this headline alone and I thought to myself I well I can respond to each and every one of these people individually and tell them why I think yeah I definitely think how you described it a couple minutes ago is good kitschy I think you said has a word yeah it's it's like we've had a lot of fun I mean we're looking at a rosary candle right here that smolar the SS molar unfortunately it was pay hand mouth inflated one not structurally about you know one of the Wall Street Journal Communications but but since crew requested all documents related to the firing of McCabe they've been coming out on what's called a rolling basis that means sound as it could have been probably hit like oh I don't know ballpoint pen along the way kind of slowly deflated and then Ukraine gauges edge of it but if it sounds good then keep it nothing nothing reflects poorly three to one so late last night we found out who those two redacted names were them which are Mo mo if they're not included in the articles of impeachment I'll be like okay now what the fuck button so treatment of four people right bank against in total that they're subpoenaing documents pertaining to that they have the documents for any certify that was brought to you by all addition Mac edit this up no well sitting there truly thinking I'm obsessed with Robert Mueller I'm going to make this candle on my own accord in the absence of this podcast who is also had fun tongue about you know it's just like and yes yeah and we know there are many other problems with the way he was fired from McCabe lawsuit itself including the fact that sessions who fired him was not authorized to fire him in this vast ocean of corruption we have little liferafts that we come across and one of them was named the SS hand in for discovery to the courts not that these fifty accounts somehow are owned and operated across across these people it yeah they are used by race for people so we'll now but now we have emails showing that the firing of McCabe was fast tracked which we knew from citizens for responsible the responsibility and ethics in Washington or crew and these Docs were released last week and we cover one of the emails that showed McCabe did tell Komi we know that trump's goal was to get him fired to lose his pension it was it was retaliatory in nature and we didn't I just wanted you know if you you've been listening to long enough you know that we aren't like Muller butlers it's just it's not it's not what we do on top of it for what's been done to his reputation and career all the people that can be added to that list of names that deserve defamation damages the yeah Yup fricking crazy discovery is so voluminous that it's being released on this rolling basis because they have milk terabytes of millions of documents fifty bank accounts for four and we get them and sometimes that like discovery sometimes happens on a rolling basis and that's exactly what's happening in the left part and eager firm in case it's the they do have amazing patterns and colors and I take one with me or I take them all actually with me on every trip because they pack and travel so well you can't wrinkle them if you try plus there is comfortable as yoga fall funny phrase aren't playing too much call of Khufu but that they ignored a rule that says you must be give you must give the person a thirty day notice of the action but that would have put his firing well past his retirement date and so I stand for him to McCabe will not be convicted of a crime he will win his wrongful termination lawsuit and his pension will be fully restored and that's what he deserves so I also who gets damages releasing exclusive episodes only available to members dom people town plus episodes will be ad free and available earlier for members than anyone else a good go to business meetings go to cocktail hour I can put on heels or flats they're just totally versa versatile super comfortable and perfectly stretchy so you don't have to sacrifice style for work where he ruled that he told the Department of Justice to charge McCabe or drop the case or he's going to release the F. B. I. Documents Right that's November fifteenth this is from a foia case of freedom of Information Act case in this episode of the daily beans is brought to you by our friends at Beta brand who are busy making the most amazing pants ever including the dress reputation fingertips together weighed very well I can we'll be right back after this awkward stick around Missy Pat Yoga pants they have multiple styles including lied leg skinny cropped straight eight pocket pants and premium denim and they have dozens of styles and colors and patterns has Nancy Pelosi and molar on it central Roberto and patron saint of shade that WanNa talk to us and it's like I don't think all the folks that send US Miller uh no we're we're literally just reporting the facts on this and we are not friends of Charles Manson and you know what I'm not comparing Manson but you know what I mean announced but with Jesse details like real buttons pockets belt loops Info Zippers and they're made a four way stretch continent fabric that breezy moves so I can wear them on the plane sit cross but no news yet on the indict him or not stuff November fifteenth is the deadline so she like like all of their multiple accounts they're not just like account set in some way relate to the activity of these people they're like their accounts they might account presumably accounts that have been minute favorite are the eight pocket pants because I don't have to carry a purse and that's especially helpful when I'm traveling on the plane or leaving out of the hotel room I have four pairs now all in black that's just me we can only Christopher Ray could fire him and that he technically had retired several hours before he was notified of his firing along with the rest of us by tweet yeah and to have hope in the political system yeah but and I don't think muller drop the ball did his job he was very narrowed and he's a pie whether is it came in just a giant tanker just can't just a modem they didn't breathe they had itchy tags and I was just constantly aware of how uncomfortable I was and I couldn't focus on my work and that's why I started wearing Beta brands dress pant yoga pants so visit Beta brand dot com three Aetna's and comfort at the same time you can have all three and before Beta brand I got everything off the rack and I would inevitably have to have tailored and they still pinched how much of a trump leaning person do you think bench Caskey is really at this point in time pretty hard so then what does trump stand to gain by him saying he was unaware of Johny being investigated maybe loyalty like the look of loyalty or knowing that Giuliani is going to be indicted and trying to pull back from that because eventually they're going to have to to trump's been saying you know he was my lawyer is he still your lawyer I don't know ask him you know he's been distancing himself from Giuliani to enjoy That could mean Giuliani as possibly muller referral because Rosenstein would have told bar about the referred stuff but not Jeffrey Rosen who took over soft talk Giuliani the same way they did Cohen until he flips on them and then they'll hard talk him yeah so they they want to make sure that that distances there and you know trump's been doing this with Giuliani ahead of the criminal division at the Department of Justice did not know Giuliani was under investigation so to me one of two things are going on I this Cohen's layer not trump friendly lawyer four tones ing and Digenova what the other possibilities bench caskey's just lying to cover up the fact that not only did he know they were under investigation but a Giuliani actually asked him to stop the investigation or extradition of for Tauch indeed dot com slash beans all lower case to get twenty percents off your dress Pant Yoga Pants today okay we're back Hey Jordan took me is facing foreign bribery charges and that's precisely what yeah for Tosh is facing yeah in for Taj recently dumped Lanny Davis he is now distancing himself from Giuliani saying that he did not know love an Eye Gore Gore were under investigation so I let that sink in see that's what we call you when you're gone you remember Brian Bench Kofsky yes and meeting that he took recently with Giuliani yes guided and I'm still trying to find clarification on why that is but he's supposed to be extradited gene United States to face those bribery charges in Chicago. I'm trying to think well first off associates and how we were and we were all surprised when he was nominated last year because he ripped Alpha-bank we're like that's a weird conflict of interest for Rosenstein That's the new DAG so w turney general so that could explain how bar knows you know that Giuliani was under investigation and so was you think is happening with bench Caskey I got I'm fifty fifty at this point I it could be both it could be that is trying to make him stop the investigation into for Tash or at least curtail his extradition is on hold right now the Austria said he could be extradited and for some reason he is not being extra aw because he said in that 'cause actually Giuliani said with his words about that meeting with bench cow ski I have to talk to you about a very very sensitive client who Deutsche Bank defenses where they're like the highest person at the top is just like I don't know how trump ground all those loans it was all these people below me that were heading those activties maybe it's something like that in the Department of Justice that's going on yeah or or you know when when bound cousy met with Giuliani maybe he didn't think that that would go public and where Ivan Drago but no sorry eleven and four but Rosen and venture Hausky might not have known they might not have been read in on it or later but so it could be both more Mullah referral and bench cousy is lying to cover up the fact that he knows about it but the Giuliani Act and especially since muller was still doing the Miller report and you're headed criminal division somebody who ripped alpha-bank which is being investigated by Mueller Okay that sounds weird well bench cows ah it is a more Giuliani Muller referral because now we're seeing this stuff go back to as far as twenty fifteen with a Parnis and I'll get into that a little bit kind of quiet since he was supposed to flee to Vienna community it I don't know I haven't looked but I I have I have heard if he did yeah I wonder if it's one of those like what if he knew going in meeting with didn't tell people under investigation yeah okay yeah yeah and so that might be the motive do you know win. Giuliani became aware that he was under investigation. I don't remember like anything that would designate when that was exactly in the timeline I don't either I know that new Guiliani in love Parnasse in eager for under investigation and then after everyone found out about the meeting that's when he's like oh I didn't know I had no idea because it would look mccallion was asked back in February I- Giuliani makes it look like he didn't realize until they were arrested very recently and somebody said the News said I was under investigation so he's acting like it's just right now but also you might not know you're under allegation if they're doing a really good investigation because you're the target they're not going to question you but you would have to presume that if they questioned people close to you like like I love and and eager who are turning out to plead not guilty I think and not be cooperative that they would have told Giuliani unless you're go ahead no go ahead no no go ahead before that the last time he tweeted about anything political was on the sixteenth so five days ago you know what I'm saying so he's really quiet right now it's unlike him although he does go dark they just checked Giuliani's twitter page and he's hasn't tweeted in three days which I feel like as long for him and the last thing tooted about the Yankees about baseball okay tale so he met the conditions of his bail he has said he will plead not guilty God is on my side so no cooperation at this time doesn't seem God is on my side the opposite of Mass Oh God let's see if equals MC squared. I would be so pissed off I was like a good Christian so you just have to say here and listen to all these fucking idiots and criminals and morally bankrupt people in site the name of the person that you you know cooperation agreement out of these four Korea Kukushkin what'd you say eleven or eager then I don't think thera minds me of them this morning I was watching an interview with the women on democracy now who's an eighty year old nun who thinks it's her like religious mission if you will to yeah like a bat at all checks out and speaking parts like I said he finally made bail he was the last Guy Duchess speaks whatever the opposite volumes speak so lowly matter Johny as long for this freedom yeah arrested sorry about have been wrong before rarely we've had on the show we think about it so anyway I imagine Johnny's arrest is imminent if they're not going to try to get it so he's a line in a little while women's name was Liz mcallister and she broke into a nuclear base essentially so that was her name She's eighty years old get over in the middle of the lease was because the woman who occupied it before broke up with her boyfriend and decided that she needed to cleanse steam cleanse her genitalia it's paid for himself so what does God think about this who knows tweet us God you take away nuclear weapons she she was protesting and got arrested somewhere on the east coast for like protesting a nuclear reactor site Yeah well that's cool I think that's what it was but yeah but that's kind of what I'm saying there are really out there who are like canonization right there should by patron saint nukes to rid itself of the bad vibes of cheating dog ex-boyfriend so she put a boiling pot of water directly on the hardwood floor in their house yeah well it happens bench caskey if he gets arrested I hope it's just going to be sitting there just averting eye contact come on him I don't know yeah sorry man Claire Technology and she was like fuck that in her gram away and say that you know what I mean h e double toothpicks on your side Parnis giving more clues of how connected to the trump family this guy is one photo back in two thousand fifteen shows imposing next to Ivana not vodka with David Korea who is one of the individuals that was indicted last week and the caption says Fraud Guarantee Powell and I know that I talk about astrology so it might seem that I'm like extremely who but I'm only medium woo woo yeah how do you feel about this I had in the I got a room. NJIT burned a hole into the crowd trying to Steam Regina China how do you feel about that negativity doc in French fries anyway now that Giuliani is the Nice adverb wise choice yeah I don't know what happened to giant angry about the floor Um yeah she did say that I don't hate everything that she says but I would never vote for someone who believes that like putting a Jada Egg Vagina is going to bring about real these so he got sleepy Weenie Leap Handy Lube for your Weiner Vaginas got the Munchies I think she was like she was like she interview she was like I am eight-year-old none and I don't think it's our right to fuck with God's creation like through nuclear weapons and that's pretty cool for this none yeah who is it didn't work Marian Williamson say that she believed it was like her divine duty right now being like you can get weed lube for your China this is why you support momentum podcast welcome to southern California it's only for vaginas though not for Dicks be ended I feel like it was last Friday but you know as I said been wrong before but shelby holiday put out a great threat on twitter and this is what I was talking about before this is the private instagram account for you like run against trump yeah like hers a seat the apple in the her spiritual Dila White House Yeah Yeah Yeah totally love trumps hate already doesn't know what's going on I think I need to make it worse mob agendas there's so many straight men and red state mm-hmm once I move till the story before on the podcast I'm quick but there was a room that I took over in a house once and the reason that I got family and then after the midterms he posted a ton of pictures of him and Giuliani smoking cigars and go into Yankees Games and touring the burnt out shell of the Notre Dame church up in counterintelligence investigation and given the fact that bar runs the Department of Justice who knows what will happen with that who knows when Giuliani's John Juliani and Freeman flying around in private jet many posted picks of fundraisers for disentis along with slide show of photos of himself with trump and members of the trump you can get we blew for your vagina now interesting just that makes sense you're in a state where it's legal cool you can get you can get your vagina high also maybe don't burn it with water my vagina pitch just weird but here's the Big One on March twenty fifth the day after bar released his misleading four page summary of the Miller report that totally miss character creating that fraud guarantee goes back to twenty fifteen which is another clue that Giuliani could have been a muller referral one of those twelve redacted referrals independence de Mul. Do you WanNa do a Nice thing for your Regina I'm GonNa be the hippy hippy lesbian voice on this podcast French fries you can get it French fries yes we've lube for your picture taken after that for sure it was posted at least after it was released the party was that night right okay Dan Yeah Art then in August Twenty fifteen there's a photo of partners with trump and Don Jr. at a campaign event in Durrell in August two thousand eighteen parnis posted a personalized at the trump hotel special guests with the trump legal team we did it everyone cheers we cheated we fixed it and and we oh that we know now that that trump pack that was funded by Parnis and fruman funded Pete sessions who's been subpoenaed along with Scott Walker fantasy link that was a thank you note a personalized thank you note from photos and Florida's and then leading up to the two thousand eighteen to twenty eighteen midterms he posted a bunch of photos of himself is molars findings by the way the day after that parnes posted a pic of a celebratory dinner with the trump legal team at the trump hotel in DC we know that Florida and notably one of the loudest voices against Impeachment Kevin McCarthy and they've all pledged to return that money since they got caught but there's news out today on Monday about new filings with the FCC Levada Soviet born US citizen with ties to Vex Berg who donated heavily to Cohen's slush fund for access to trump called essential consulting but ever sell like he's just one of several wealthy Russian making Straw donations to the inaugural on behalf foreign donors in the form of tickets to the inaugural Ukrainian money by the way he also helped Moscow Mitch earned his nickname by donning over Republican tax but not if the money is being funneled from foreign entities but he's a multi-billionaire he's worth like nineteen billion but ever but ever ever in Ukraine Ukrainian money into the inaugural into these super PACs in potentially are maybe unknowingly subjects investigations already yes nice graze doing Putin's bidding basically and that's volcanic that's this whole group a group of dudes that are now US citizens soviet-born that have been funnelling Russian miss specially him in vessel Bergh because I know that when Muller was looking into essential consulting there was a Columbus Nova which was excellent Blah cynics donations to the trump inaugural he attended with vessel Berg who may or may not have gotten tickets from Sam Patten who was convicted for that crime last year in connection with indicating that trump's legal team against the Mueller investigation also was fraud guarantee that ties Giuliani to that and that's what makes me think Giuliani is a muller he's been hearing them but ever someone to but ever frog guarantees probably one yeah yeah also frog guaranteed POW wow that was the name but could they just be continuing the investigation of him because he keeps climbing whoever is investigating him it could be that I mean that's an awful long time basically so you could stand there and have a minute to talk to him at a lot of people did that yeah we've been hearing all those names for very long time Brady had one Yeah where else McCarthy is getting his money and it's none other than bloviate Nick so just last month Whoa Vinik made a two hundred thousand dollar donation to the McCarthy Victory Fund according to the Anti like Yes let's go see the show today and the Guiliani turns into a bat belfry eating over seven million dollars to him and other Republicans like Marco Rubio and von next this is Bloomberg so now he he is a US citizen and he can donate maybe if it's not a bar blockage jack definitely sounds like something you die from what do I take a bar blockage I remember I think Cindy Yang had one where she was collecting money from Chinese businessmen to just get money for you would pay for a photo with trump this company I think five hundred thousand dollars of a donation and then another million to the inaugural and all that was just a pay for access to trump and there were several of these groups it's focus social that's their slogan and dwell that's what we say it is and he has ties to Pasta and Muller was investigated fearing elections and how far do we let it go wet legal recourse do they have in terms of him you know essentially implementing shadow foreign policy and acting and also lobbied trump and Tillerson to get reser rob off the hook who is a Turkish person so lobbied for Burl and it's been going on for a while why they haven't indicted him yet that could be a bar blockage yeah especially keeps far blockage but then I wondered to me ABC Giuliani before that we might not have what we're going through right now with this and and so that that could be part of it too although I I wonder what and and we do know that I'm sure Muller briefed Bar on the hand off stuff yeah but or maybe they haven't had eh I want that to be ashamed people can say whatever like with some sort of authority however and whatever and butter AH federal campaign second of all you cannot lobby on behalf of a foreign government without declaring it to the Department of Justice so unless he registered like how long are you like how long should we let them crime yeah right right actually tried to like make a case in court and also endanger national security and Inter in Ukraine just like Manafort was manafort worked with Tash and it's all just a big everyone knows everyone at super slimy name of sorry what was that that was the caption on the Couto on the phone okay cool Rod Guarantee Powell they also culturally appropriate so nice yeah so that now android four door you go those are the dice roll I guess when you decided to around entire societies on a man can I bet your task ethic I have some good secret we like three degrees of separation for trump three degrees of separation with corruption us to name just a few but on who does that who does that who goes in tours towards like stuff and business like only dossier which is what they're calling it and taking it around to Fox News sending it in parchment envelopes to the State Department and saying we demand meetings rickie lobbied for Ukraine one of his clients right yes without registering as a foreign agent so an and now he's lobbied for cash by taking for Toshka's seven page astray we talked about the chart we got some tweets we've got some tweets about the album chart oh everyone is connected yeah we are I I'm good at six degrees of Kevin B a foreign agent for Ukraine and Turkey now because Turkey he was trying to get Golan out as well and lobbied trump on behalf of Aragon to get Gulan out Through another holiday season taking closed mouth photos embarrassed by your smile so get your smile photo ready for the holidays with clear liners candid candidate lenders can help street in your teeth wave fast with the issue in Congress and so now he's lobbying on behalf of for Tosh for that which I guess would be lobbying on behalf of Ukraine and their philanthropic and love this because with each liner purchased candid donates twenty five dollars to smile train and bring safe one hundred percent free cleft lip and palate sure than traditional wire braces the treatments only take about six months on average when I was a kid I had braces for five years and I'd wear headgear and elastic and nobody's got time for that so beans to get seventy five dollars off that's candid co dot com slash daily beans code daily beans for seventy five dollars off again candidates got money from who got money from for Taj who got money from the Kremlin UN. We'll be right back. We have a lot more headlines Theo dot com slash daily beans and then use code daily beans at checkout. You'll be glad you did OK this story is just weird apparently Mitt Romney has as an agent of the government overseas will the law is is that you can't be you can't lobby on behalf of a foreign entity I can't bring any money in from a foreign entity to looking gun yet so they've been able to just kind of survey him at one of those various levels we learn about McCain's book you know it could be it could be because the Ukraine stuff that we're looking at right now if they had you know what I mean all roads lead to Putin yeah just above a certain income level would agree separation in six honestly see you got money from fraud guarantee was because Romney recently admitted in a piece in the Atlantic that he had a lurker account and that's a profile under a different name that he operated in secret to monitor the political conversation and because it takes less time it costs less money usually sixty five percent less than traditional wire braces an experienced license orthodontist in your state will create your custom treatment plan the treatment of children around the world and that is situated 'cause so join me and have a photo ready smile by the holidays go to candid co dot com slash daily beans and use code in you know as they deserve it could be could be another more handoff right Yeah Yeah because we have heard his name for a long time Yeah Roger Stone I see now what's happening yeah if anyone says we we spend conspiracy theories now it'd be the time slate theorized that Pierre de Leko was Romney after they discovered one of the followers of that account was Romney's grandchild and then slates actually Feinberg found that he think of how trump accidentally called mark asper Marcus Barranco I'm like really yeah so what what is in flagrant okay directo mean according to which Mary delicto means a delight and what does influ- Koran taming that was very oath Syria was very troubling so yeah I I think it's interesting I mean I my first thought is when trump was doing that mm slash beans all lower case to twenty percent off yours millions of women agree these are the most comfortable pair of pants you'll ever wear to work that's BETA BRAND DOT COM B. E. T. A. B. R. A. N. means in the midst of sexual activity or in the act of committing a misdeed caught red-handed so Pierre has a liquor twitter account and he's had it since twenty eleven under the name Pierre delicto slate I started trying to find out about what accounted okay after sleep published the hypothesis McKay coppins reached out to Romney and said is that you and according to coppins Romney's only reply was a Sem wa it is almost my favorite time of year the holidays and you might think this is a little early but if you're like me the whole the Christmas lights already holidays start now and you don't want he says posts on twitter I am tag you say oh totally Deloitte go I always think of in electro which means an uncompromising sexual position I believe or naked first follower peer delectable first follower was mitts oldest son tag I thought tag was a Palin kid I was just going to say that Trig I reposted and done some interesting things on there from that account it makes it seem like he's pro impeachment and he actually said today I think Monday night he came out and said that the what was it and the new shows this cool three D. preview video so you can see how your teeth are now how they move over time and how they'll look when you're done and candidate comfortable removable and completely invisible and egg after after sweep published now I'm just going to call him grew grew Romney So an alter ego for the more you look up Directo it also sounds like a like a fake like a fictional character in a lemony snick novel and it made me going

Five paulos select styles only <music> poker breaking the one and only famous perez perez. It'd be perez. Hilton guys welcome to dp h._b._o. Booker he's peres what do i am ready for the week. <hes> <music> missing my mom. She is in miami right now and having a good old time i got invited to a birth a uh fancy fancy celebrity kid's birthday party. Oh really okay nicky. Hilton invited me to her daughter's birthday party. Which is sweet. Wait so i'll take my i don't. I don't also like to roll deep like unless it's like a really close friend. I never liked to show up to a birthday party with three kids. That's too many that's how many kids you have a well. I would think that that would be ok well. Normally i would only take one but but she specifically said plural when she invited me so mike all right. I'll take two of the kids 'cause she's a friend but we're not like close friends. We're not family anyways anyways. It's easier. It's easier this way. Well speaking of celebrities diddy is currently on vacation or he was just on vacation seven in italy and you know he was spotted on vacation with his twenty two year old girlfriend lori harvey and laurie's parents steve harvey and marjorie harvey and once again i was right. I told told you that steve harvey was all about it. If steve harvey was not down with ditty dating his daughter listen he could still be a cordial. He could still be like all right while you're an adult. You're twenty two but like vacationing together. That's a whole other level of he's. He's cool with it <hes> together. It's fine that he's cool with it. I have no problem with him being cool with it. I however think it's weird a f- okay okay. It's weird. It's weird. Everybody's in italy right now. Courtney kardashian in italy heidi clue is in italy and she got married. It had the wedding ceremony in italy even though she legally got married earlier this year she got married to this guy from germany as as well. She's german. He's in the band tokio hotel remember them <hes>. I never was really into their music. In fact i hated. I hated her music. He is twenty nine. She is forty six and i expect to be pregnant any second now or dot ah couples news. Oh gee an update on something that we spoke about earlier this week. I i mentioned how lamar odom has a new girlfriend. He is dating this life coach slash trainer wahl now it turns out that that relationship is fake. According to people magazine they are not dating says says people and lamar just wanted people to think he was dating this woman sabrina par okay <hes> i mean i guess anything attention right right. I guess so yeah <hes> thinking of couples news lily reinhart from riverdale a lot of our younger listeners probably care about this. There were reports that she in cole sprouse her co-star broke up but then they sort of seemingly denied that but not really denied it so we're not sure where these to stand at the moment but cole sprouse just celebrated his birthday and lily reinhart his his on again. Possibly girlfriend wrote him a poem. I think they're just fucking with people and they really broke up and they just want people to think they didn't didn't break up. Is what i'm thinking. I couldn't care less all right. That's what i'm thinking. I think you'll care about this story. This story has more universal appeal. Okay selena gomez now. You got yeah. She and her kidney donor francia raisa are no no longer speaking and have had a falling out and apparently it all stems from the i wouldn't say it's a fact act but it all stems from reports allegations that selena was not taking good care of herself and listening to doctor's doctor's orders after her kidney transplant and after francia gave her her kidney right so loose translation. She's out there partying too hard and her friend pissed. I gave you a part of my body and you're not taking care of him so she. I don't wanna use the word confronted because i don't i wasn't there. I i don't know the tone that was used. It could've just been a conversation confrontation unlike that word she could have addressed concerns in multiple weighs like one is somebody who donated her kidney to you and to just as a friend who's concerned for your well being but was it francias place to have that conversation hundred percent okay. They're that close enough friends that you're going to give a part of your body to someone one. I think you sit down you listen. That person's saved. Her life saved her life. If she is upset i understand it. I don't know how to what extent stan. I believe the story like. I don't know how much of it's true. If it's true at all it's true. They have not been spotted together in forever. They they're not friends anymore. That's just so weird. That's just so weird. I would think no matter what for the rest of my life i would. They have such gratitude and feel like i owe such a debt to that person for saving my life. I don't know the whole thing is very strange to me but selena upset upset that she was talking to too much press about it. No selena was not happy that she felt like she had constantly this thing over her head where she was showing it to <hes> francia this met the other. I don't know francia does not have children if she did she. I don't know if she would have given her kidney. I wonder if i wonder if she regrets donating her kidney now given everything that's happened what she seemed to question what she's a really good. She's seen selena do and given the fact that they've had this falling out. I hope that patch it up because that's a that's a big give. I wonder like the whole celebrity the thing that that come into factoring giving the kidney like if it was a regular friend that was not famous francia have donated the kidney now. It's also so fascinating like there's only one friend of mine that i would could seder donating a kidney but then i don't even think i would my best friend is like a brother to me but i got three kids like what if one of them might need it in the future you know all right onto some couples news shawn mendez and gunilla gubbio continue their tour of love all over america. Ah and something came across my mind. I do not understand this at all. It seems like whenever they're out and about they're always going out without bodyguards why i keep thinking video and photo and and reading accounts of them everywhere and they're not i guess maybe they just really want to be normal but then they're not like go to this restaurant and then it becomes a scene and all of the fans are asking for photos and everything and isn't that weird to you that they keep going out and about without bodyguards not so much. I remember justin selena they. It did a lot of things without bodyguards. They would always be spotted somewhere. I don't know i think some people can just blend in. He's probably a little harder to blend in because he's so tall and thin and good looking. I think she could blend in a little better than he can. Shake it really blood did she looks so different without makeup and she looks very normal but pretty mary pretty that's an insult to saying stars without makeup you sometimes you don't notice them. They're around you all of the time. They're not made up they they could kind of blend in and out. We'll speaking of shawn mendez. He revealed during one of his fan q._n._a.'s because he does these before the show show that he has deleted his social media just like selena gomez smartly <hes> so whenever he wants wants to upload something on instagram or twitter or whatever he sends it to his team and the team uploads it so he hasn't deleted pleaded his account he from his phone is what he's got you yeah so he he does not have social media on his felton nor does camilla aw which is interesting so maybe he got that idea from her. She doesn't have it either because her mom posts everything for her that she wants her mom to post and and that's smart. I think it's healthy to well. She talked about that recently because she randomly went on social media. Because she was was looking for a fee for something photo she said to promote the fact that it's the two year anniversary of havana and she saw a comment that was body shaming in her because she and sean were at the beach recently and how that comment just didn't put her in a good place yada yada yada. It's not easy easy. How about that white bathing suit she was wearing it was like it was like a mono. Kini didn't leave much to the imagination that way you you're abuse. I don't even want to say i wanna make you look bad hardy. Look bad don't worry about it. I'm not gonna say it though because i don't want to make you look worse on our show but but let's just say bunker gave me a very booker response when i sent him that photo i did. I don't recall said anyways well more more music news including taylor swift and ed sheeran but i i gotta tell you guys that camilla.

I don't see that much. I mean she's. I guess maybe saving it all for release week. Which i guess is bar <hes> but i'm excited she could do some promotion. She has announced that she is going to be performing at good morning. America's concert series on her release weeks. I am looking forward to that and hopefully looking forward to more promo from her. We got a lot of early promo but now it's it's like no promo in a really long time. Bring it taylor speaking of taylor good friend ed sheeran has just reached a major major milestone ed sheeran's most recent tour which has been going on for two years now is sets about up soon soon but it has now become the highest grossing tour of all time while he beat u._2.'s previous record and now the divide or has earned over seven hundred thirty eight million dollars others and he's made way more money than you too though because you to split that four or five ways i don't know and they've got extremely high. Production costs awesome sheeran. <hes> does not have high production. He just goes out there with the guitar like a repeater pedal insane. He makes about like six million elian dollars in one night because he's been doing stadiums all right speaking of crazy. This is sad. Hopefully he gets the help he needs needs but i think that acknowledging you've got a problem and you need help is a good first step towards getting that bam marghera whom a lotta people know from jackass zig marghera or marghera. I'll maybe margie i. I always thought it was marghera. I don't know how to pronounce anything. Jarrah gonna go with you. I just thought that that's what it was but i could be. I have no idea that's just what i thought marghera anyways bam. I am formerly from jackass now reality tv star and social media influence her had been posting a lot of alarming things on instagram. It seems like he's really still struggling and he even reached out to dr phil saying my family is in shambles and asking dr phil for help. Is that a good idea to ask dr phil for our help. His advice is usually spot on so if you think t._v. Doctor can help. You can't unhurt right. You just need to know that it's going to be on his show and he's going. Maybe that'll mode bam wants that to me. That's what he wants exactly yeah so when win and speaking of families in shambles wendy williams does not want her family to be in shambles she she wants to have an amicable divorce from her cheating at an allegedly abusive ex husband kevin avid courting into a new report in the daily mail which somehow i think the daily mail's plugged into the ex husband so i'm hoping maybe the ex husband lied but not just the ex husband they've they've somehow dot wendy williams on lock like they've broken so many stories about her this year so i consider them very reputable when it comes to this topic according to them wendy has decided not to sever her business business relationship with her husband. He's going to keep working as her manager because she i i don't know i guess it's doing him a favor well. Maybe he's done a good job okay. The marriage didn't work but maybe the business side of it works. She's been on the air all of that all. That's that's what he convinced her. He tried to convince her that that was the case well. The facts are the facts. I mean the fact is that he was her manager. All along and you know it worked so so maybe she decided you know what it did work. I don't have to be with him anymore. But this may be a good move for me business y you know teaching somebody buddy else the ins and outs of what you do and what you are a tough gig for her own healing. She should let this guy have space. She's not going to have space from him now okay but he does serve a purpose in her life on the business side of it and she may realized that i look i think she can still he'll and do her job. At the same time she could have could have found somebody just as good or better. I don't know if i agree with that. Why not because you act like it's just like the easy thing to do. The the there's one hundred things that he knows the ins and outs of it's impossible to train somebody. Maybe she doesn't want to she's enter fifty. She doesn't want to start over with somebody new and a whole new team at g. She's anatomic but she's going through a break up. I mean this just may be the easiest thing he did. Build it with her. Are you just saying that. He has to go why he built it to his aligarh. He's a cheat okay then don't be married to him but that doesn't really have anything to do with their business is my point if you lied to me personally. I can't trust you professionally either. I would say well then. You're going to be training somebody else. Can you imagine having to train a new barbie. It'll it'll take work but you can do it you. You can quit in three weeks two. You're crazy person. I am not a crazy person your crazier than me. Uh-huh i'm very rational crazy or irrational crazy okay. We'll speaking of crazy. Oh my god what am i favor things things and an ongoing debate that has been going on now is about people going to disneyland and disney the world that do not have children there. Is this mom who wrote a facebook post. That went viral saying that she thinks that adults adults that don't have kids should be banned from disneyland thrill okay so i just went to disney with my girlfriend. I would be banned under her regime asia. Yes if you don't go with. I can't enjoy rides and food and the whole disney experience like why can't i it's magical. It's fantasy. Why why why can't i enjoy it. I agree. I'm not saying i agree with a woman and then similarly. I would say this woman all right well. Then families and people with children children should not be allowed on planes with non families. You know i'm also thankfully my kids are not babies any more but <hes> i would have been down to go on a family only flight air scare. No thanks so yeah. I agree with you. I think this woman is just ridiculous disney. His knee is for everybody. You know what else is ridiculous. Oh my gosh this teenager sixteen years old one three million dollars a fortnight tournament. How on earth does not even like the fortnight world. Championships is like a regular fortnight tournament like how how do they have that much. Money especially 'cause second place one one point eight million dollars. You know if my kids i. I have to buy my kids fortnight now. Get them generating. Some money is that how do you play. Is that on the t._v. or on the laptop like how do you think it's on your phone. I really don't know. I just know that it's a free game and every kid plays it now. My son does it but he somehow knows not more. He knows minecraft even though he never played minecraft. I'm like how do you know these things get to old navy saturday and sunday just in time for back to school. Girls girls and boys polos are three bucks in stores. Only plus saturday only jeans or ten bucks for adults seven bucks for kids at old navy and old navy dot com valid eight ten to eight eleven limit limit five polos select styles only let me tell everybody about truecar using truecar helps people buy new and used cars now. Everybody knows that but now using truecar mark and also help you sell or trade in your car no longer do you have to get into the selling process unsure or unaware of what to expect before ever arriving. Get a dealership. You can go online enter a few details and see how your car's value goes up or down in real time from there. You'll get an offer from a local dealer and once once you arrive the dealer will confirm cars condition with you side by side once you're done you can cash out or trade it. It's that simple. It's convenient thir- transparent. It's accurate. It's speedy you're in control truecar a better way to sell or trade this to me. It's it's silly there is is this silly petition going around to move halloween to the last saturday of october. I would vote yes for that. Every why twice on sunday no here is why first of all i the thing that makes me. The happiest is when halloween lands on a wednesday then you can celebrate the weekend before and the weekend after end that wednesday to i think halloween should be two weekends and wednesday. Halloween should be all month long frankly. I think it should be the last weekend of the month because the parties people go go out for halloween parties. I think they should move it to. I think they should move it to the weekend so you could everybody goes out on friday on halloween and choose that don't you wanna have two weekends at halloween is not the bed no. I hate halloween number one so i couldn't care less but i would think it would just be better if it was on the weekend. You don't have the halloween spirit no i don't i definitely don't i hate dressing. I think it's weird that grow not stress up so much. I love it. I'm cheap so i don't do it big like i used to but i used to do it all right. Let's talk about some positive news some good news. This is surprising news julianne lianne. You might be confused by this so i'm not confused by julianne huth the professional dancer and reality tv star has come out. She didn't put a label on herself but in a new interview she had this to say she was in bed. One day with her husband spend brooks <unk> like like lake some shit like that i think he used to play hockey right and in bed. She told him you know. I'm not straight and he was like i'm sorry what i was like. I'm not but i choose to be with you i. I think there's a safety with my husband now that i'm unpacking all of this there's no fear voicing things. I've been afraid to admit or that. I've had shame or guilt about because of what i've been told her. How i was raised. I mean i had to mention this because i think it's so powerful because she i don't know if she's still a practicing mormon but she grew up mormon and and you know this is very important for queer mormon visibility so good on you julianne huff to me. I took it like she likes chicks two yeah. Obviously she's like look. If you want to bring a chick home some night i'm down. That's how that's not what she said at all all that's the one i heard how. She said. She's not straight but i choose to be with you. That doesn't mean she wants to be swinger or have three thumbs. I don't know i think that's highly debatable. I think she's saying look kind of like girls to see does all right. If you wanna make me happy maybe you you bring one home every day. That's what i that's what my male heterosexual ears. That's what you want to hear exactly not what she ride. That's what she said to me. Oh my gosh would you do that. Would i do what if you would you be into that. She wanted that. I'm tom barry to juliet huff which would be awesome because she really add up before she's nice. Whatever else if i'm married to her and we're in bed we're talking. She says you know i liked chicks two. I'll be like oh really okay and then another night. She says hey you care if we bring janet home. I'd be like all right cool. Yes so i'd be down with that wanna now. She said she wanted to bring roger. Hope i'd be like no but you can janet hope for sure down with that all right well more positive news more visibility. This is amazing and wonderful especially given everything that happened with one of the head honchos over victoria's secret previously saying that they would never have a transgender model in their fashion show. Victoria's secret just hired their first ever trans gender model to model for their victoria's secret pink brand so i saw her too. She's high no very hot. She is you know even a trans person. I would say you know there's different transgender people who some of them transition later in life and or maybe just don't have the resources or whatever who who who have more difficult time quote passing as the gender they identify as but this woman if you did not not she's a woman. You would not know that she was that she was assigned. Male at birth to her name is valentina. Some pyo congratulations to her eight. That rocky has been making the most of his time as a free man. He was just spotted fighted. Kanye west sunday service is still doing that and it was nice to see a rocky out and about. I'm surprised he hasn't hasn't done like a big. Sit down interview with somebody. I'm surprised he hasn't gone to the white house yet. You think he would go to the white house. That's a good question and i don donald trump was lobbying hard for his release. More music news not news. It's made me happy to see this. Brittany brittany was following crazy woman's rule from earlier the podcast britney spears and her two young sons well not that young i think ones on fourteen and the other one's thirteen. They were just spotted at disneyland. Can you imagine going to disneyland and seeing britney spears that chaos that that must is 'cause. It's cool. When you see celebrities at disney i have before to you just kinda. Yank your head and say oh wow that's whatever and you keep walking but if you're a bread and people would stop for britney britney i think people would like follow her around the part yeah not for the whole time the follow her for a while take photos videos from afar and just gawk for a while call all your friends facetime then brittany's right there right. That's that'd be like seeing beyond say at disneyland now. They'll be onstage. That'd be crazy. I'd say so rich probably pay disneyland to stay open later for her. She would shut the park down. Shut the park down with speaking of beyond say huge huge news and actually i think this would be so this is so smart because not just the lion king song whore war soundtrack but her most recent output before that was the joint album with jay z and i was saying that that also under delivered right it wasn't a huge head underperformed either way to kind of like counter act that she's going with a sure sure fire thing according to reports beyond say has just made kelly rowland and michelle williams decade. She has agreed greed and it's organizing a destiny's child reunion really yes not confirmed not official yet but it's been reported <hes> idea now. I don't because i'm trying to think of when i went to see beyond say last time at dodger stadium when she played the old songs i found found myself excited for a moment but i really was there for the newer stuff. I was there for lemonade really oh no i love the i love the old south no and i i did too and i would have said before going to the show that i would be more excited to hear the destiny's child stuff but to me it kind of sounded dated and the new stuff is what i i really wanted to see so i mean i'm sure it will be great but you're right. I think a lot of fans are going to love that but me. I'm more excited to do to see what she's gonna. Do next taxed unoccupied. She didn't really want to do anything. She doesn't want to give us hits well. I don't need hits. I think the last album was chocked full of hits but i love it now. I love it more now than i did. When it came out it was a good album. I just think it was a really good album all right well beyond say to a huge beyond fan and one of my favorite people to talk about meghan markle. Marco are american princess. We love her. The brits don't the brits. I'm not gonna generalize but a lot of brits just do not like her and i think it's because she's american clearly american and an actress best <hes> she just turned thirty eight and celebrated her thirty eighth birthday a with a very fancy party that the queen through for her in scotland at her borrow moral state. I hope i pronounced that correctly. I wonder what like a party with the queen and the royal family is like he think they serve alcohol. Yes they do. I gotta think they're all a bunch of drunks. What else do they have to do. I don't know i would think it's not very royal to get drunk. I think it's probably just like every family where there's some people that do and people don't or maybe there's like royal etiquette on how to a drink ellie mae i bet you there is see you gotta watch the crowned because what was what was her name the other one that was always in the press the dark hair really pretty the one that party the one that was i guess that'd the the queen of england sister queen process. Dan is it an would you see that on the crown. She's awesome. She's fun. She smokes. She drinks she parties. She hangs out with all of the wrong people. She was awesome. She's so fun to watch so. I think it's just like every family but i think she was kind of looked down on to get a reminder yeah well. She ended up. I think she had a lot of health issues. She died young into the she was only sixty eight years old when she died oma and the queen is in her nineties. Now it wasn't margaret and is the hard partying one. We'll leave this england listeners to whoever watched the crown season in one. That's who i'm talking about. I'm thinking margaret for some crazy reason but i could be wrong. I'm terrible with names and maybe you're right and one last thing about meghan markle marco before we'd take some calls these people the royal watchers their so easily triggered and upset by anything uh-huh but first of all she makes so many headlines kate middleton does not get nearly as many headlines but this will not last i mean. I don't even think it'll last asked next next. This is just twenty nine thousand nine hundred by twenty twenty. I would hope this is all died down and the just like the disdain for her is <music> over but as part of the new issue of british vo she gets added that and shared one of her favourite poems uh-huh. It's a poem called a note from the beach. Maybe do an expert. Hello i am the beach i am created by waves and currents. I was made every rhode rocks exist next to the st. I have been around for millions of years. I was around at the dawn of life itself and i have to tell you something. I don't and care about your body. I am a beach. I literally don't give a fuck. I am entirely indifferent to your body mass. I think i'd heard enough. I've heard enough. We're good people were upset that she shared a poem had the f. word in it. Oh well apparently part of royal etiquette is that they should not use common words. There are there are words that are described as common and not not just curse words even words like they don't say toilet or dinner like dinner is considered a common word right. I guess they just say stopper. Supper like so stupid and i love it are at let's take some calls hans aeschbacher. You were hundred talk about eddie. That was the creepiest thing mention the whole those prints. I can't believe you think it's not creepy of like grows rose unacceptable thick it would be creepy for normal people but not for hollywood people. I don't see the difference. I don't celebrities. They're not normal people lose. I am a first time caller longtime listener. I'm calling from orange county and <hes> do you love the show been listening to it for a few years now <hes> so my call is in response to the episode machete and watermelon i normally but but i wasn't up to date with the podcast so this is my thoughts and <hes> felt compelled to call usually just kind of am really touched by how you guys aren't perfect but i love how booker year usually on point with things all things <music> her as your own point with all the things race and <hes> people of color. I think i do that about you both with avenue that might be the craziest thing ever so i think so <hes> let's continue with this protocol grounded and gallons but i felt like i wanted to explain a little bit more. I guess on the issue of what scarlett johansson said about how she should be able to play anything that she wants. She should <hes> but i go back to the issue of when wonder woman came out i myself <hes> a woman of color and i'm also griffin so <hes> i'm not cramped gendered. I don't know what it feels like to be transgender. I don't pretend to but i know what it feels like. When you see representation on that connection was shocking. We ran out of time. Are you still awake pres- waco the calls obama wait. I i agree agree with what she said. Except for the calling you a feminist. I have a giant feminists. Did you hear my comments earlier about. What's her a bed with her. Yeah exactly those are feminist communists. It's kendall from <hes> centerville virginia about the instagram <hes> whoa i mean i refuse to feel guilty about owning too. You know enhance my photos a little bit. Every photo could use a little something whether it's buffy now skin imperfections or whitening your teeth a little bit <hes> there's even a a neat defining thing where you can make your eyelashes pop little <hes> as long as you don't you know abuse it and get radical with that. We all have those friends who you know you can tell that they went overboard with it and <hes> <hes> you could you know they they're like almost cartoonish <hes> but if you use it to subtly enhance and define it's a great tool and there's there's no reason for you not to want to. You know <hes> boost yourself a little bit. There's nothing wrong with that <hes> and that one lady who called in yeesh. I mean it's it's great that you passionate but i do think that all that passion could be better served. <hes> you know something more important. <hes> the people feel good about themselves like it's not that big of a deal <hes> just be responsible with it and i feel like most of us are and and most of us use it and enjoy it and yeah the defender of the photo show all right. I'm all for it too but i wouldn't. I use it myself the only thing and by the way reminder in the i had to professional photos taken recently. The only thing that was photo shopped shopped ahead a big vit- that's it the rest the rest is really said. I wanted it to be real. Hello stephanie from canada and i'm just calling in on the perez hilton kathy griffin situation. I think that peres you just need to listen or read it one more time with an unbiased view <hes> i think maybe i don't know i think you in kathy has something and so you're reading it negatively but i agree with all the callers and she's just saying that she knew his mother better than she even knew anderson back off of this yet <music>. I'm in. Maybe i reread the quote. Maybe that's what she meant but she could have worded herself better and maybe she word herself the way she did it on purpose <hes> uh-huh okay hi my name's linda brenick. I am from pittsburgh pennsylvania regarding the wedding. My daughter's was up near doc tober and and her dad and i pay for the bride's portion. My daughter and her husband did not pay for anything and then the groom's side for the alcohol and the rehearsal dinner and we had the pittsburgh cookie table light. You know that accident. I just hear that accent. I just think of home. That's like everybody. I know that i grew up with. It's crazy. I've missed that axa downtown and see the steelers on sunday playing great. I hi the girl of the week podcast my is i would think about selena gomez and her friend hi griz booker. It's it's been young calling <hes> british columbia canada. Has you guys for a really long time now. My long drive for work. I wanted to say was to question to read about the p._d. Dating his sons ex-girlfriend how would you feel if your mother started dating one of your exploited kalihi friends onto here we i i would be thrilled from my mom.

You a man that the microphones open Tom canton's just walked out of our studio, folks, he made a shake. All right. How was it about to tell the truth was? It was a little bit. It was. You know, what I liked it? I'm not I'm not about to play this game. Yeah. I mean, come on. Mr. Henry, I liked it. I'm not about to play this game. It was good. Thank you. Tom was very very good, Tom, Kansas, health wagon will be at the pincer mall, and that's in LA who've Lia and that'll be tomorrow. And then they're moving onto Pasadena to the gladioli mall, and all of these malls. Which by the way, don't have any people anywhere near them because everybody's staying at home and ordering online. All the brick and mortar I hear the brick and mortar moles going out of business. That's you heard. Right. So that's the story was Tom canton had had a relationship with a girl by sue Griffin. And she was a fan of yours. And then she went out see, Tom, and and health wagon, and then they got involved that way. Yeah, they got. Well, that Tom, you know, Astra or full number times. How what does he some kind of celebrity at Medina zone way? Yeah. And so then they went out and this guy, Tom who's her husband, apparently, the he made a big mistake. I mean, Tom canton did made a big mistake of seeing her to her house. He was with her at her own home with the husband coming home. Oh for God. Are you kidding me? Yes. When he got home he could hear it down a hall, and he thought his wife was being assaulted for God's sake. That's the only thing that got the that's the only thing that got. The guy that got him to kick kick down the door and eat such she was being assaulted. But but she wasn't. No. So what she was screaming guts. Wow. Well, Tom, Kevin. Yeah. Yeah. What about the satellite was? No, I just I didn't know he had it in. So all right. So the guy kicks down the door and realizes his wife isn't being assaulted. There's a guy riding her for all she's worth, do you mind? Well, I've just I'm trying to get to it. Yeah. And then he he saw it in. You just, you know, then he grabbed this inequality room was a standing lamp and grabbed it and went after him. So even though well, yeah, I guess I would be. But I mean when he came into the room he said, oh, he saw was the canton's but going up in a year. Did you hear all of this? But yeah, I think he's making up half of this. Where'd you hear it? But I heard it from people who talked to the police bullshit. No. I swear to God when he came into the room Tom captains, but was up in the air. Yes. Yes. And then told you that I'm not about to divulge a source get outta here. Well, okay. You'd have to bring me this guy. Mr. is his name Tom to Tom Griffin time Kenton. He's home so situation. Meet Tom, Ken, Mr. Tom Griffin. Oh, yeah. That's real good. And he came into the room and canton's asses up in the air his ashes in the areas Ridinger for all she's worth was not the direct quote. Yes. And so that's when Griffin this husband grabs the thing of it is like in his fifties. And this guy Griffin. He's in his thirties. And it's in twenty say that again, I did, you know, slow the hell down, bud. It said Tom tens in his fifties. The husband was in his thirties. And woman that come cat and was tagging was in twenty. Can we use something a little bit more respectful than tag? Okay, fucking. Hey, man. Did it on? That's right. All right. That now that you've done that. He's. That's right man because we didn't want to use the word tag. Do you think we're going to be happy with the word with the few see? Would you set out Dickman would hold your nose? Like, it's bleeding feeling it hasn't. So then what else bud? I mean sounds like he's knows deep in it about being, you know, full. Well, well, all right. So, but you heard was that this cat in guy, our friend, Tom Katyn was assaulted by the husband gam- it at a police in rhyme. It can't be sued for alienated pension. What about any salt charges? They've been known for. But no, it don't do it. But there's been no assault charges. Then you didn't even have to hold your nose. No, MR Henry, you know, he said, I barely get touched. Well, they're knocking off William when we're twenty. I ask you questions, so Tom, canton, and this young lady doubt. Did you have this in your column? I had in my call him everything that bugs talking about here, except for this idea that they asked was up in the air, or whatever you say. All right, the but was up in the no one told me about that no-one said Mr. Griffin entered the bedroom and saw catton's acid the air. Well, one can well imagine if I think about it is. Who would ever guess that Catton was some lowlife me? All right Jesus. World-famous Phil Hendrie show and filling every show dot com here on this. What are we going here man Wednesday?

Fine, people that make up our show here with us. And we're going to be talking in this segment with Senator Orrin Hatch, which is a very exciting yet. Good job, bud. Thank you Senator Orrin Hatch is made some comments recently that some people have thought controversial John McCain, the Senator from Arizona who's very very ill with brain cancer. And he has said that he would not like to see Donald Trump at his funeral. I think that were they talking about the funeral. I hope they work because you just said they were well, why would he talk about that? Join McCain's not even passed on yet. I mean that was the information. I got from bud. Do what he was. They don't want to see him at the funeral. He doesn't wanna see Don Donald Trump at the funeral. That's correct yet. So or hats hats on line two here on newsmaker line. And he has said that he. He's. No five that wrong thing. All right. Senator hatch. How are you, sir? Good to have you on the program. How are you good Senator had tower, you wonderful and let me say, Phil. I haven't had the opportunity to be on your program. But this is an exciting moment for me only because I really do radio interviews, though, they upon cast that they have podcast this center podcast. But it gives me an opportunity to reach out to constituency. I don't think I I talk all that often too in those are, oh, you know, maybe younger more technically savvy groups, let's get right to it. Here. Senator hatch. Did you say that this was a ridiculous thing that Senator McCain would keep the president from his funeral? I still do. I don't I don't see any point in it. And I hope that that's being communicated to Senator McCain. Now, why why do why do you think that a man who should be able to control who comes to his funeral who doesn't why do you think he doesn't have? Right to to say that. I don't think I said he didn't have the right? But I am saying that I think it's a ridiculous notion that you wouldn't invite the president of the United States. Look, Donald Trump is a good, man. He is a man you you think he's a good, man. Sure. He is sure he is at least I want you to believe that. I believe that. He is. I personally don't think that he is. You don't think he is? No, no, no. I don't think he is. But for the purposes of public consumption, I'm going to say that he's a good, man. And that that Senator McCain should invite him to his funeral. Now. You made a point early into good point. That Senator McCain your funeral is the most significant event of your life beyond birth and certainly should be of the pick. And choose who's going to be at your funeral. If you can, but I'm not sensitive to that. Because I'm nowhere near dying. I'm alive, and I hope to stay alive for another eighty years old. I am. So I don't have any real sensitivity to funerals and who gets invited. Nobody wants to talk about that stuff that I mean, what would you say that again? But for public consumption, I want people to feel especially President Trump that I am in his corner that I support him a hundred percent, okay. Just like you did with the that that the national park of the state park thing. Right. No one even remembers what that was. But I I certainly remember, and I did back him up on that Senator Orrin Hatch with us on on President Trump not being invited to John McCain's funeral. That's what we think is about. We could be wrong. The code was that he didn't want Trump bear. I don't know. Whether it's about a funeral or whether it is his cremation. I, you know, let's not make as more of a joke than it already. Is if you don't mind us, I'm Margaret gray. How are you? I'm fine. Margaret, I've heard you on the radio before let's discuss Shelby, a Senator hatch. When you admit to the fact that you want President Trump to notice. That you support him. Dude, you really, yes. Of course, I do because I don't have any personal beliefs one way or the other when it comes to the kind of ally the underhanded stuff to the president does all I know he's he's a Republican, and I need to be in his corner. This what I've done my whole career. I it's one of the reasons why I'm venerated elder statesman of the Senate. And it's also one of the reasons why I'm one of the duller creeps, you, you know, I have to admit. If the shoe fits while I got to admit it. You know, I wanted to Dolor creeps that had been in the Senate because I don't really I don't stand out. I don't push my weight around. I don't do anything all that. Controversial. And I argue with liberals because that's good play. You had an argument with Sean Brown. I think about insurance or something. Oh, he started in with working man working class. And I don't like to get in those discussions because I don't understand what any any. But really mean, I do understand the rancher. I understand the big the big ranch. That's what I understand. And so I represent the rancher and I represented to the best of my ability. So you just represent big business. No, these are these are people who own homes, but it's the only business that I'm familiar with you know, in the smaller businesses people needing insurance struggling businessman's this. Ball man, or the small woman who's starting out in business. I don't understand any of that. And the less. I talk about it the better because it starts to remind me myself. I if you if truth be told, you know, well, because I have never succeeded doing anything other than sitting here on my ass and being a Senator now Donald Trump is a guy who notices, and I got that before any of these other guys did. So when I say something about Donald Trump, it's going to be positive, and I want him to remember that. And remember that I said it. You're going to be leaving the Senate soon. Aren't you know, that made some people at that? Let me let me what do you think about Mitt Romney coming out of retirement? I don't think about it at all. It's not very interesting. It's again, we get into that area that we called dullsville. It just no one cares. Mitt Romney doesn't excite anyone's imagination. He doesn't even excite my imagination. And and I'm I've been sitting here for forty years waiting for something to come along and be interesting, and it almost happened with the election of Donald Trump until I realized how easy he wants to play. What do you mean by that? What I what do? I mean by what what do you mean by heat and being easy to play? You do you think he's an idiot Ono? I don't think you get. He's just very easy. I know what he does. He manipulates people. He plays people. I do the same thing. So when I have an opportunity to back him up until why don't you invite the president? He's a good, man. Okay. I know you took exception to that film. But yeah, I did take exception to that only from the standpoint of the this man has done so much in his personal life of a controversial nature. How do you know? He's a good, man. I don't know. He's a good, man. But I said he's a good, man. That's all you need to say. Who's gonna ask me? What I mean by that? It's day three after he said that no one's Ashby anything. So I'm playing my cards, right? I'm very excited over the fact that I haven't made a misstep here that everything's right down. And I've said everything right down the middle high and tight and there been three swings. Three MRs strike, one strike to strike three one out bottom of the first. So the games just beginning. Games just beginning fell. And I will be a just as happy as you and anybody else when it ends because it's it can't be all that thrilling. But I do believe that Donald Trump's the guy you gotta keep on good side. This, you know, Trump if it turns out, he's a real scumbag, and there you were saying he's a good, man. And the public turns around and looks at you and says what made your judgement so bad high gonna feel then that the public has had how many years the public had how many years figure out that? I'm not the brightest bulb on the tree, I'm Orrin Hatch. The name alone gives you an idea as to just how I came into this world. Okay. Pretty good. Thank you. So for me. I I believe that I've been able to play this. What was your question? Never never mind. A Senator hatch will let you go and business used to be called as you like the them. But we just decided to bring you on for this interview. So Donald Trump is a moron. I know. I never said that I said you have to say the right things. All right. So you're lying. I'm lying about. What that he's a good, man. Oh, yeah. Yeah. No. I'm of course, I'm lying. But you didn't ask me what I was lying or not, you know, the pro here's the thing that you're right about the press hasn't really asked you about what you meant by. He's a good man have even asked you. Why it is you think that he ought to be McCain's funeral not that? I remember they might they might have. But I don't remember anybody. The press goes in one ear and out the other is you walk into your car. You're going to another meeting or you're off to to meet somebody, and they're blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah asked hat Senate hat summit? Yeah. Yeah. I don't remember any of this stuff. I say half the things I say are blatant bald-faced faced lies the other half of the things. I never mind Orrin Hatch Senator from Utah special guest here on the world famous.

"Anderson Cooper, three sixty is supported by better help the world's largest online counseling program listeners can get ten percent off their first month at better, help dot com slash AC C three sixty. Stay tuned to hear about my own personal experience with better help. Spoiler alert. It's been great tired of spending hundreds of dollars for prescription glasses. Xeni offers thousands of affordable. I wear styles starting at just six ninety five no ridiculous markups. No hassles. Just quality affordable. I wear delivered right to you visits any today at Xeni dot com slash CNN. Good evening. The president of the United States, says that if a foreign government came offering their election, help this time around, and I'm quoting, I think I'd wanna hear it. He said, in other words, the central point of the mullahs report a four nad viscera, including Russia's, he came to influence Merican democracy. The man who took an oath to defend it says, he's okay with that and says his FBI director things. Otherwise is wrong and bladder MIR Putin's help find by him parents. He says it's done all the time. Just normal opposition research, says President Trump history says, otherwise, it is not done all the time or even some of the time, it's not normal and has all this comes at the end of the day full of other breaking news, including new reporting on the president's efforts to investigate the investigators in addition to that tonight, hope Hicks longtime campaign aide, former White House communications director and one time member of the president's inner inner circle as agreed to testify before the house, you do -ciary committee now. The question will be will the White House. Try to stop her from talking about what she saw and heard. Which might have been plenty during her time in the west wing. So that's just ahead along conversation. Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on a very important day for his campaign. Talk about all that, but we need to start with what the president told they C news is George Stephanopoulos about foreign meddling. Listen, your campaign, this time round foreigners, if Russia if China if someone else offers you information on opponent should they accept it. Or should they call the FBI? I think maybe you do both. I think you might wanna listen. I don't this stuffing with listening, if somebody called from country Norway, we have information on your own. Oh, I think I'd want to hear you want that kind of for elections. It's not an interference. They have information. I think I'd take it if I thought there was something wrong job, maybe to the FBI, if I thought there was something wrong. But when somebody comes up with upper research, right, they come up with upper research, oh, let's call the FBI. The FBI doesn't have enough agents to take care of it. But you go and talk, honestly to congressmen, they all do it. They always have. And that's the way it is. It's called upo research. I was President Trump tight climbing. This is just the way it's done. Joining us now is former director of national television ships Clapper, author facts, and fears hard truths from a life in intelligence stretcher, Clapper, is this just the way it's done. Well, it certainly isn't interested in a run out of adjectives to react to describe reaction to this incredible. Amazing thing stunning and disturbing the president would advocate the use of. Accepting. Information provided by a foreign country notably, a foreign adversary and doing so completely overlooking the fact that this could well be probably would be disinformation. Other words, completely phony and to endorse that, and then in doing so endorse undercut, the FBI and, and is director. I just it's just incredible. And I can't get over the duplicity of it here, all the criticism about the infamous dossier. And you know, you can't use it because it's not it's not valid, you can't accept it. That's an end in this case. Well, and you know, it's okay and we're looking to the future here. We're not we're not talking about the past are the dress Campbell previous segment made some very points about that. You know, I'm reminded of when candidate Trump said, you know, Russia, if you're out there, I'd like to get those, you know, Hillary Clinton missing Hillary Clinton emails, the thirty thousand emails and you know if you're. You know, if you're listening Russia, and we know from the Muller report that hours later. Hackers Russian hackers made made attempts. It's essentially kind of echoing that again. I mean, it's basically a clarion call saying, you know what if you have if a country came to me, again, I would I'd, I'd listen to the Russians are doing a there. They were going to do, they're going to repeat, what they did in two thousand sixteen they're going to repeat it in twenty twenty and now what President Trump has done is encouraging them to do. So again, it's just a stunning. Yeah. And I mean, again, it you know, people people just kind of roll their eyes at this point, it bears repeating this is not normal behavior of a president. I'm not even sure he under. I mean, I don't even know if he understands doesn't care what, what, what the ramifications of this are, but if any other president had said, anything resembling this. You know, Republicans in congress would have understandably. Yeah. Interesting. Can you imagine if Barack Obama, if he were still president somehow said something like that the Republicans would be going nuts over this? It's, you know, it's the president or hard to describe the president saying that the FBI director is wrong on this. I mean, Chris Wray is the man he appointed again, if you're Christopher how do you react to, to this tonight? Because again, this is goes against, you know, his saying, don't I mean, he said, maybe I would, you know, I'd, I'd get the information, and then maybe call the FBI in other parts of this interview he talks about how you know, he's never called the FBI for anything. Maybe it's kicked people out of his office, or did he would never pick up the phone call the FBI, one of those bras, you never call up ya. That's, that's not startling. Revelation. He just said, flat out Kris raise wrong, and Chris Wray is not wrong. There are legal implications here. And if you get information provided by a foreign nation state, particularly if it's coming from the likes of an adversary, like China Russia, to me first duty is calling up. That, you know, if if the if a foreign government reached out to an American citizen, someone said they were from Chinese intelligence or from a Chinese think tank and reached out to American citizen with asking for documents or willing to give some documents for some sort of a contact if that American citizen didn't contact the FBI they could get in trouble. Could I mean depending on the on the circumstance that could easily happen? What do you think this sends what message does this end to, to foreign governments, you think like like Russia? I mean we talked about this a little bit. But essentially, you really believe this sends a message to them that go ahead. The gates are open for twenty twenty and I'm open for business on this simply courage them to do something, they're going to do anyway. And by the way, because of the revelations the little detail over report, which was clearly already gone to school, and it's going to be harder to detect what they're doing. Yeah. And now we have the president, essentially encouraging the Russians to Kaji what to do what they did in twenty general Clapper. Appreciate it. Thank you very much had a problem with the Mike, there, Dan, apologize for that. Joining us now is senior legal analyst or coats, former Republican presidential candidate, US, Senator and currency senior political commentator Rick Santorum with us as well as senior CNN, senior political analyst, David Gergen adviser, but democratic and Republican presidents dating. Back to the Nixon White House. David. I don't even know how to pose a question about this. But were you surprised that the president would would say this given all that has happened as far? Shocked, but not surprised with this is sort of becomes standard fare. Unfortunately for president, listen. And I think one needs to distinguish legally, and Laura can elaborate on this, but the but law fair, which is a online. Publication is highly respected had an analysis of the law regarding this and it makes a distinction between. If you've got fear on a campaign and receive information from the Russians, and you have your member of the government is unclear that you have an obligation. But if you're in the government with a top top security clearance, and a person from a foreign government approaches you with information like this, especially in visceral country, you have an affirmative obligation to call the FBI, you have an affirmative obligation. And it would be breaking the law, not to call them. So I do think and that is suggest how serious, this is I listen to I've never heard of any president before this who even talked to the Russians. I never knew of any staff at every even talked to the Russian it was just sort of so out of bounds of just unimaginable. I mean, the fact we're even talking about this is sort of startling, but. But it is not surprising Senator Santorum know in the subways in New York. There are signs saying, you know, if you see something say something we want citizens to call the police if they even suspect something. What message does this send? Well, I mean, let's be fair. The president said he would listen but he was also Senate to the FBI. He said he'd do both. So the question is, whether he should do both or just simply refuse to get the information but he did say he would turn it over to the FBI. And what I was maybe maybe and also initially he did point out. He's never never picked up the phone for for something like that. And nobody ever would and congress people don't do it. And that Chris Wray is wrong that you should pick up the phone. Yeah. I like the prison throws terms maybe I mean, he has sort of as we all do we have filler words that we throw out there and that, that don't mean what they say, like you know, I think is so, so I took the president for his word. They would do both which I think I don't think that's necessarily inappropriate as long as he refers to the FBI as far as looking at the information, maybe should maybe shouldn't. But I don't think there's a crime in looking. At the information as long as you referred to the proper authorities, Lor is a is this appropriate if he looks at it. But but, but maybe then he does decide to call the FBI. This is the president of the United States is going the route. Listen. I haven't committed a crime, but if I had the opportunity to do. So perhaps, I think about it, because that's what happens in the real world is extraordinarily dangerous here. There are loss on the books that say members of a foreign government. Foreign nationals cannot interfere with the American electoral system more than that Anderson. They're very clear than American citizen, including a campaign cannot solicit information from a foreign national or foreign garment for the purpose of doing so swallow this comes down to the idea of look, if you were actively trying to get information opposition research, or however, you want to coin, the phrase to try to get a campaign contribution of sorts that he would otherwise have to pay for that file lakes, the law, the idea that the president is saying, well, you know what everyone is doing it? So I should be able to well, the real world he would not prosecute this. You got a hold. Body of campaign Kanji talk at this. Now give you wreck central. You're talking about the idea. The laws have not actually been so well defined defined what it means to be a contribution. Whether it's a value at the bare minimum, you cannot solicit from a foreign government anything like this wealthier our election in many ways. This sounds just WikiLeaks are two or solicitation, all those veils lawyer tradition a bunch of facts, that, that George Stephanopoulos ever said, George severed off ask him whether he was soliciting. He said, if someone came to you. So the president wasn't answering questions about soliciting information. He was saying if someone came to you and said, hey, I have some third, and he was talking more Colo clear. And again, I think the president's word is as often or imprecise and not necessarily. That's why I think he didn't want to be interviewed with, with Bob Muller is that he can sort of ramble and talk about things more loosely. And I think he was talking more of a general political context that we could officer research all the time when you get opposites. Rachel Senate campaign. You don't call the FBI. I mean I got I got folks who through through information at me, and all of my campaigns. No, I never called the FBI did you get assure way or my. If, if I knew that that information was coming from a foreign source. Sure, I would call the that's not what the president said he didn't. He said he would. Rick, one point servicing in the overall context that George ziplock was asking the questions back is what George as Donald Trump junior dinner member that phrase, if it's what you say is I love it. And why did have one permission about what was going to happen? It is a fine line in for me as somebody who honors the executive branch of government knows that the president nights states is there to enforce the law as part of his duty the idea of skirting that fine line of when you say what they like to give to me and ask for information. It's really quick. I gotta I gotta get a break in. We're going to pick up this conversation after short break. We'll continue this. It's important, also to this point, you'll hear for yourself, the prison United States, the United States. More of what he said, George Stephanopoulos, about his own handpicked FBI director. And of course, Senator, Bernie Sanders and twenty twenty presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is going to be joining us in just a moment as well. Thanks to better help the world's largest online counseling program for supporting Anderson Cooper, three sixty we all could benefit from a little therapy, and better help makes it so easy to take advantage of I took the plunge myself to seek out strategies for dealing with stress and stress relationships from the get-go.

Questions to ask and advice to offer and in no time I felt like I was talking to an old friend who just happened to be a professional. I've heard a lot about mindfulness lately.

President Trump says he thinks he'd accept help from a foreign power to get reelected, and then maybe call the FBI if he remains meddling curious to coin, a phrase he also in his interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos seems awfully FBI skeptical. Here's what he said. When asked about Don juniors. Encounter with Russians, who are offering dirt on Hillary Clinton allegedly from the Russian government and the Email he got first floating. The idea. Going to be FBI when he got that, okay? Let's put yourself in a position era. Congressman somebody comes up and says, hey I have information on your opponent. Ducal the FBI. From day one you do. I've seen a lot of things over my life. I don't think in my whole life I've ever called the FBI in my whole life. I you don't call the FBI. You throw somebody out of your office, you do what gore got stolen briefing book he called the FBI. Well, that's different stolen breaching this stuff. This is somebody that said we have information on your opponent. Oh, let me call the FBI. Give me a break. Lifeless director says that's what should happen. The FBI director is wrong. Back now with Laura coach Rick Santorum, and Dave Gergen Gergen's. It seems pretty clear in that, that he's saying, you know, if he was done junior or what Don jR did was totally appropriate. Not to call the FBI, even though he was approached by someone saying they were representing the Russian government. I'm afraid that's what that is what he said. I listen, I do think Rick Santorum makes agree with him. At one point, if you're sitting in a campaign, somebody comes in and says, I have dirt on my opponent. No matter who they're from you're probably going to read it. And as far as I know there's no law that says, you can't read it the question becomes, what, what you do with the information that you've received. And who you received it from and on that, I anybody thought about this, the first thing they would do is call the lawyer for the organization, they're working for and say, what is the right thing to do with this bombshell, I've just received I went through this way back when in Carter versus Regan race. A nineteen eighty we got a briefing book that just appeared over the transcript it belong to the other side. And when we cover more about it the first thing we started doing is calling the FBI, we did not want to, you know, we just wanted to make sure that are skirts were clean, you and that's vision you're in, but I disagree with strongly. On the idea that he didn't mean maybe you know, he the President Trump has a long history of creating loopholes for himself. You know, he'll say something, but then you'll create a loophole which will give him away out. And maybe is essentially saying, well, maybe you might want to keep it after all of this. I got the first load of dirt on, on my against Hillary. If I just sit here with it. Maybe bring me a second, load it, it becomes part of a practice it becomes very underhand in his what undermines our democracy. Ultimately, I mean, Senator Santorum, you know, the first response from the president is what you're done junior gets a call on this, and he's going to call the don't think so no congressman would do that. That's his gut reaction. It's only later on and conversation, maybe in his mind is thinking, oh, you know, maybe I shouldn't have said that, that he throws in a maybe. Well, look, I mean, I Don Donald Trump, junior didn't know for sure that that was from the Russian government or I thought it was eight what he didn't know. Okay, we'll Email actually said it, it is from the Russian government. Well, again, a lot of people say a lot of things and, and. It certainly not anybody recognizable with the Russian government. And so someone says, hey, I got. So I guess the point that I think President Trump is making his if you get something that someone sort of alleges you're probably going to take a look at it, it looks like this is a serious issue, which of course, it turned out not to be. Then maybe you take it to, to the FBI, but going to the FBI because someone and this is what I think the president was saying because someone claims something from something without having any kind of evidence to back it up. You probably don't do that right away. David, I think, yeah, I want to say one thing it's worth remembering the context. This was a campaign team that was already talking to the Russians about creating a backchannel from if they get elected back down in the White House directly to Moscow to be able to go around all the thirties all the intelligence agencies. The F B I and everybody else. This is not a team crash really looked at something like this. They were very serious about trying to create a system that was outside the system, Laura. If you're in the FBI to go ahead guide guy. Further context here. You're essentially saying that somebody comes to you and says, hey, I've got this really nice Lamborghini, do. No, I don't either Larry Guinea back. Do you wanna have a joy Brad Wakeman you saying who among us would not get into a car that probably is still women at that point in time with the president of the United States? Somebody running the president, I states should not actively pursue the joyride and should be at least a student, not to know knowing that he's already been named individual number one, I believe, in a SDN y filing about campaign financing campaign contributions about trying. Obviously, she froze there, Rick Santorum. I mean does. EU yourself, though, very clearly said, if this was you, you would call the FBI look, if I got information that. Yeah. I think the president is if you look at the totality of what he said, I am a little uncomfortable with the fact that he seems to give the intimation that, that it may be okay to not call the FBI when you get information for government, because I read is wrong, when he said, well, the well, I think he was saying Christmas wrong with respect is son, Donald Trump junior. I, I don't think he was saying collectively that that's how I read it. I could be wrong. But that's how I read this ranch scrip. And so what I what I would say is that just the just the appearance that the president is giving that it may be okay to solicit will not solicit, but to take information at and to read it is I just think the prison maybe should walk that back a little bit, and say, look, I'd read it, but I would share it with the F B. I think is the right anthrax announcing you're ready to receive information. Yeah. He's not. It's kind of soliciting. Yeah. I that's not a good idea. Senator Santorum always appreciate it, long coach David Gergen, as well. Now, Bernie Sanders. He is, of course, the independent Senator running for the democratic presidential nomination as democratic socialist today. George Washington University just blocks from the White House. He made a case that all three labels draw. In fact, on single progressive tradition when that fits this moment, he says, in time in this particular president, listen. It is my very strong belief that the United States must reject that path of hatred and the business. And instead, find the moral conviction to choose a different path a higher path, a path of compassion, Justice and loaf. And that is the path that I call democratic socialism. Today in the second decade of the twenty first century, we must take up the unfinished business of the new deal and carry it to completion. This is the unfinished business of the Democratic Party and the vision we together must accomplish tight. We'll explore the implications of that cost of taking up that unfinished business as well as the price to be paid for not trying without let's welcome. Twenty sixteen and now twenty twenty democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Senator sanders. Thank you for being with us. I wanna talk to you about your speech in this idea of a twenty first century economic Bill of rights, which is what you were really focusing on today. Very quickly, though, just your reaction to what the president told George Stephanopoulos, that he would in fact, take a look at opposition research, or anything offered from a foreign government, even an adversary, and then maybe call the FBI will to tell you the truth. I am not exactly shocked. I think we have a president who neither understands the constitution of the United States or respects the constitution, somebody who does not believe in this up. Peration of powers and somebody who thinks he's above the law. I mean, that's why I believe the how should begin impeachment inquiries on Trump's so no I'm not shocked. What changed your mind on beginning, impeachment inquiries, because because it is it is something of evolution for, you know, not really. I mean, what I I've not here to tell you that we should impeach Trump. In fact, I don't even know that they're all the votes in the house to impeach him. But I doubt very much. There are the votes in the Senate to can thick the media two-thirds of the Senate sixty-seven votes. But I certainly think that the American people need to understand what this president has done, his contempt of for the law. And I think that is the process we undetake when we begin an impeachment inquiry in the speech today you talk about a twenty first century economic Bill of rights, and you hearken back to FDR and kind of pitching, this as a continuation of FDR's legacy. Even Martin Luther King junior. Can you explain how it is pertinent to a vision of democratic socialism? Absolutely. Back in nineteen forty four in a little remembered state of the union speech quarter. It was at the end of World War, Two and Roosevelt said, look, we have a Bill of rights in this country, and we have a constitution paraphrasing him, which says that we have all kinds of great rights. We have freedom of speech, freedom of a semi freedom of religion all of that. It's great. But what we do not have is an economic Bill of rights. We don't guarantee a decent standard of living to all about people. That's what he said, and he died, he laid up and in fact that mantle has never really been picked up. So what I am saying today, is that all we truly free. This isn't a sense. What Roosevelt was saying? If you're going out and you worked in seventy or eighty hours a week because the wages you'll live you're working under off starvation, wages, all your free. If you can't afford to go to the doctor in the wealthiest country in the history of the world. And you get sick or maybe you die because you can't afford health insurance, all your free. If you are a young bright person, but you can't afford to go to college or you leave school fifty or one hundred thousand dollars in debt all your free. If you're sleeping out on the street tonight. Anderson, a half a million Americans, including many veterans of sleeping on the street. And I told what I am saying picking up from Roosevelt that in the wealthiest country in the history of the world now is the time to finally say that economic rights are human rights that everybody in this country deserves a job at decent pay. That healthcare is a human right, that a full education is a human, right? A clean environment is a human right? Affordable housing is a human right, retirement security. We got millions of old people senior citizens of this country who literally cannot afford the prescription drugs. They desperately need. It's yeah. I mean you are, you're leaning into democratic socialists. Obviously everybody's known your democratic socialist. But I mean, you are clearly trying to sort of explain what your view of what that means to, you know, an American population and many people who see here, the socialism, part, maybe not the democratic part. And, you know, President Trump, ultimately will be yelling Venezuela. She was much as possible. Yeah. Well, that's exactly the point. And the other point that I made today is that, in fact, people like Donald Trump are also socialists, except they all corporate socialists, they are prepared. And do provide hundreds of billions of dollars every single year in subsidies and tax breaks to large corporations, and the wealthy Anderson, you will remember very well, the Wall Street bail out now Wall Street is the pit pity of unfettered capitalism. That's what they believe except when the greed in a legal behavior nearly destroyed the economy, they win begging to the congress. They were big time, socialist, and they said, we need federal help, give us seven hundred billion from the treasury, and trillions of dollars in low interest loans from the Federal Reserve. You got the fossil fuel the street today, which is literally destroying the planet, and they get billions of dollars in subsidies and tax breaks. You have. Amazon owned by the wealthiest person in this country. Jeff basis made eleven billion dollars last year. That's what was on made in profits. They didn't pay a nickel in federal income taxes. So, in fact, you got Donald Trump himself as part of his housing in devas receive tens and tens of millions of dollars in subsidies and tax breaks. So you do have socialism in this country except as Martin Luther King reminded us. It's socialism, for the very rich and unfettered individualism for the poor. We're gonna take a quick break. I want to continue this conversation. It's important. One Senator Sanders, just a moment still have more ground to cover including as we've just started touching on big money. President Trump's attack on Democrats writ large and his take on socialism and the Senator himself a lot more. We'll be right back. Remember to create an ad like this one, visit pure winning dot com slash CNN. We're talking to Senator Bernie Sanders tonight about embracing the label President Trump and even some Democrats treat, as an epithet socialist in his case democratic socialist, which Senator today, so to weave into a progressive tapestry as it were tracing back to the new deal. And before he also cited Franklin Roosevelt opened scorn for government organized money organized by money as FDR called it seeming to welcome as FDR did at the time the attacks on him that have already begun. There's partisan Trump had a Republican fundraiser in Iowa last night. Painting, Democrats angry and extreme. The democrat party has never been angrier. This so angry to give people so angry for what for what these are angry people every day. The democrat party is becoming more and more unhinged and more and more extreme. They're going crazy. Do you love it? I love it. Back now. With Senator Sanders you talked today in your speech about compassion, Justice and love as sort of the hallmarks of how you see leadership and your leadership. You know how the president's gonna paint. You're talking democratic socialism besides, you know, Venezuela is, is do enough Americans know what you mean by that. And what that actually looks like, well Anderson that's why I'm on your show tonight. That's right. Look what we have to understand, for example. Just for example, the United States is the only beta country on earth, not to guarantee healthcare to all people as a right in many countries in Europe, Germany, for one you go to college, and the cost of college is zero. I think in Finland they actually pay you to go to college in most countries around the world, the level of income and wealth inequality, which in the United States today is worse than any time since the nineteen twenties with three families owning more wealth than the bottom half of America that level of income and wealth. Inequality is much less severe than it is right here in the United States, as you know, the taxes in many of those countries are much higher than they are into the individual personal taxes, much higher than they are in the state. But I suspect that a lot of people in this country would be delighted to pay more in taxes, if they had health, if they had a comprehensive health. Care as a human, right? I live fifty miles away from the Canadian border, you go to the doctor anytime you want. You don't take out your wallet. You have hot surgery. You have a heart transplant you come out of the hospital. It costs you nothing your kids in many countries around the world can go through the go to public colleges and universities tuition free a wages in many cases a higher. So there is a trade off. But at the end of the day, I think that most people will believe they're going to be better off when their kids have educational opportunities without out of pocket expenses when they have health care is a human, right? When they have affordable housing when they have decent retirement security, I think most Americans will understand that, that is a good deal when, when somebody is looking at, at you, as a candidate when someone who looking at Senator Elizabeth Warren as a candidate vote progressive candidates, obviously there. Now, several polls, have you trailing Elizabeth Warren. It's kind of ridiculous to look at polls at this stage of a of a primary battle. But she does not have the label democratic socialist. You do. Is it a liability? I don't think so we'll tell you why look, certainly known Elizabeth for many, many years, and she's afraid, she says she's a capitalist. I know. Yeah, I know. And I know many of the other candidates walked in my view, knowing them, personally. Well, intentioned in decent people want to do the right thing. But here is the point Anderson that I wanna make one of the reasons that so many Americans are dispirited about the political process is they he candidates come phone. I want to do this, and I want to do that, and I want to do that, but nothing happens. And the reason for that is not that the candidates allying it is, we have to deal with the reality that we don't talk about too much, and that is the power structure of America. The fact that the folks on Wall Street in the drug companies in the insurance companies in the military industrial complex in the fossil fuel industry have so much power that no president alone. Not me not anybody else can do it alone. And that is why I talk about us, not me in our campaign, why you're talking about a political revolution. If you want. To transform our energy system. And you wanna come back climate change words, not good enough. We'd have to bring millions of people together to tell the fossil fuel industry. They will not continue to destroy this planet. You want Medicare for all you're going to have to stand up to the insurance companies, you wanna cut the cost of prescription drugs, and half, which is what I think we should do. You're going to have to stand up to the incredibly wealthy and powerful pharmaceutical industry and you're gonna get it, and you're, and you're gonna have to get it through congress. You're going to have to get it through congress, which are not going to get it through congress. When lobbyists and big money interests controlled congress. The only way that real change ever takes place. And now and in the past is when millions of people stand up an opera pad the fight for that. And if anybody tells you the dead going to bring about real change in this country, and they're going to sit down and Capitol Hill, and they're going to go, negotiate this, that they're not being quite. Honest because you're going to have to take on Wall Street and all of these other powerful special interests. And the only way the change happens, whether it is the civil rights movement, the women's movement. The gay movement, the labor movement. The only way it happens is when people stand up and fight bucks with this campaign is about is bringing together a mass movement of people, and I'm very proud that we have over a million volunteers already Jenner Sanders.

President Trump's interview with ABC news the president's saying, quote, I think I'd wanna hear it unquote. If a foreign government offered information on his twenty twenty opponents. It's pretty astonishing remark given what's taken place over the past two years. Joining me now is congressman Gerry Connolly democratic member of the house oversight committee, which today voted to hold both attorney general bar and commerce secretary will barrage in contempt of congress over that contentious proposal to include a citizenship question to the twenty twenty cents. It's comes from Connolly, first of all, your reaction to what the president has now said about kind of being open for business to get what he terms opposition research, even if it's from Russia or China or some foreign power. Well, I think the president has reopened the whole question of collusion and the gated two years of denial of collusion, you know, he's fond of saying, no clues new clues into that mention no collusion and today, he said, I would welcome collusion. I would gladly accept opposition research, or analysis by foreign power. Against one of my political opponents. That's the very definition of collusion. Anderson, right. By the way, opposition research, might be disinformation and might be false information damaging to that could be damaging to opponent some of your colleagues in congress tonight are calling for impeachment proceedings to begin to do these comments from the president. I mean, does it work? Does that change your mind in any way does it affected? Does a warrant it? Well, certainly fix it, and it pushes us further and further in that direction, we have a process, the way you mentioned the intro our committee today, for example voted for contempt citations against secretary Wilbur Ross, and the attorney general, Mr. bar on a different issue. This isn't ship question, but across the board. I think the walls collapsing on Mr. Trump. And I think he's helping the process ironically with comments like he made today. So I think there's almost an inexorable move. Toward impeachment. I don't think we're there yet. I think we have to let this process sort itself out, but he certainly making it much more difficult for himself. And in terms of that contempt vote today. What happens now? Well, I think we go to court we passed yesterday on the floor a resolution that basically powers committee, chairman like ours. Logic Cummings, the chairman of the oversight and reform committee to go directly court to enforce the subpoena. So hopefully that short circuits the process, it doesn't completely solve the problem of the time lapse in courts. But again, I think it makes it more imminent and more real for those who were subpoenaed and facing this contempt citation could the department of Justice and Democrats on your committee still work out a deal before there's actually moves to a court fight because the House Judiciary committee. They were able to reach an agreement the DOJ, yes. And they did in the face of the threat of a criminal, contempt citation. So, yeah, I think that's possible, but I have to tell us so far, the administration led by the attorney general and by secretary Russ has basically thumbed its nose at our request that produced. Seventeen thousand documents most of which are heavily redacted or redundant documents. We already possessed, they've been entirely unresponsive, not a single document in response to this very specific request. We made with regarding this question comes from Connelly. I appreciate your time. Thank you very much, pleasure, Edison. Thank you on a very busy Wednesday night. There are still more breaking news. What former White House aide hope Hicks has agreed to do on Capitol Hill. Next. Cancer March bad is three sixty five on this edition of our film. I'll be joined by Louisville head coach.

Listen to subscribe for free at apple podcasts Spotify or wherever you listen to podcasts. There's more breaking news tonight. Hope Hicks who emerges when President Trump's most trusted age in the campaign, and then, of course later in the White House has agreed to testify a week from today behind closed doors before the House Judiciary committee. Now it's the first case where a member of the president's inner circle will appear as part of the committee's investigation into potential destruction Justice, on the part of President Trump. Caitlyn Colin joins us now with more from the White House. I it's hard to overstate how close hope Hicks was to the president. Also, how much information she likely knows the question is, what would she say or can she say, and is the White House, going to try to stop and lawmakers are going to be trying to get everything? They can at least those democratic lawmakers because as you noted, not only what she one of his top aides. She was also one of his closest confidants closer than anyone else when she was here, working in the west wing. But also, remember, she was there every step of the way during the campaign Anderson. So as you noted, she's the first member of the president's inner circle to go before this committee. But recall she testified before that time when she admitted that she had told. What she said we're white lies on behalf of the president. But there's a good chance. I mean, she might not actually answer many of the committee's questions, right? Yeah. There is it remains to be seen. What kind of privilege, the White House is going to assert over what she's going to say? And they will have a chance to do that likely with some of her conversations of her time here in the White House. But of course, if it goes back to the campaign, they can't likely assert executive privilege in the way that they would hear the White House so that time is essentially going to be fair game for these lawmakers. Now, of course, what is going to happen. Here is still remains to be seen it will be behind closed doors. But I should note we are going to get a transcript of what goes on behind those closed doors. And she still has a relationship the president and they're still close, aren't they? They, it's not the same relationship based on what they had before when she was here. The president could holler out for her from the Oval Office, the relationship has changed. We've been told by sources. So that's where that's what makes this interesting is that yes, she's still considered in the inner circle, but it's certainly not as close as she was when she was working just feet away from the Oval Office industry, working for the GOP, or Trump reelection or anything. No right now. She's not working for the campaign that we know of she does have this new job at FOX, that she's been doing public relations for them. And what we've been told by people who have remained in contact with her is that essentially when she left the White House after not only her time here coming under such scrutiny, but also that relationship with rob porter. The staff secretary who had to leave over those spousal abuse allegations. She really wanted to distance herself from Trump world to a degree. But of course you see your picture. You see her face. She's one of the most recognized people from this administration from the president's world. So it's pretty hard to do that. Galen Collins to the White House Kaelin. Thank you up next.

Impeachment & The Coming Crash W/ Peter Schiff

"We need to roll back the state. We spy on all of our own citizens. Our prisons are loaded with non violent drug offenders. If you WANNA know who America's next enemy is look at who were funding right now. One of these problems are the government being cupid's. What's beverage body welcome to a brand new episode of part of the problem. This is this should be a good one. I'm excited for this episode. I WANNA start off on my own here just talking about the news of the day because I don't know if you've been paying attention but there's some rather large news that's a that's unfolding over the last twenty four hours as as jr in the WWe to say business just picked up. Isn't that right. It's what Jerry used to say. Businesses picked up. I don't know I think that was a thing the wrestling announcers I packed up and then stone cold. Steve Austin would come out. I don't know either way. Business did indeed just pick up. Nancy Pelosi gave aby press conference yesterday announcing that she is going forward with an impeachment inquiry regarding impeaching Donald Trump she. She said that the impeachment process has begun. Although my understanding of the constitution is that requires a vote I could be wrong about that but either way it. It looks like the Democrats are going ahead with the idea of impeachment. This is of course something that they've been flirting with since about about thirty seconds after Donald Trump got sworn in talk of impeachment has has plagued the trump administration and the way it's happening in the way it's unfolding folding is in my opinion rather shocking rather shocking and I you would think after all the stuff I talk about about you know how you know the nature of the state and where you know the nature of the media and how the the drastically low regard that I hold all these people in I wouldn't be surprised anymore by some of this stuff but I still am I. They still managed to get me. I actually couldn't believe I I could not believe after all of the hype after all of the investigations that this is what they're moving forward with for impeachment think think about this just think it through for a little bit. Donald Trump has been investigated by the House and the Senate he's got investigations running all over the place on state levels and of course at the FBI and then you know the special counsel the Robert Mueller investigation all of this investigating none none of what was found in those investigations has anything to do with what's happening with the impeachment proceedings. It's pretty nutty and if Donald trump he's claiming claiming that this is a presidential witch hunt he's been saying that for quite a while just on the on the face of it it would kind of seem to lean in his favor that after all of these investigations after so much investigating they've found nothing that they're moving forward with and now they're just doing it about something else so what's really surprising about this is what is what the story on its face is now. The story is that Donald Trump made a phone call to the president of Ukraine and that he did something inappropriate about this the story. Is that a whistle blower a whistle blower. Who's who we we don't know who he is. She went to the FBI and goes. Something inappropriate happened on this phone call now. This is the official story. This isn't what we're adding to it. Okay as of yesterday when the Democrats decide. They're moving forward with impeachment. The story is that we the Democrats don't know who this whistle blower is. According to The Washington Post in two other newspapers the whistle blower did not have the transcript of the phone call okay so they don't know who this guy is. They don't have the the transcript of the phone call and the transcript was never given to Congress by any other party so by their own story story. The Democrats don't know what happened on this phone call. They're going off rumors accusations and what's been reported in the media and this was enough for them to begin impeachment proceedings pretty strange pretty strange that that's what they would be going with now. It is possible you know like if under normal circumstances if I didn't know who all these people were it might lead one to assume they know something that they're not telling the rest of us because if this is what they're moving forward with Holy Shit. This looks like it's GonNa be nothing like it's GonNa blow up in their face so you might think well. They probably know something. Nothing else probably something we don't know that they're not telling us they have information and this is what they're going to bring up. However these are not normal circumstances and in the context we live in where we do know who these people are to think that they launched an entire? FBI investigation with nothing an entire special counsel investigation with nothing the you know got fis awards with nothing got all of these accusations of treason with nothing. It's hard to not entertain entertain the possibility that maybe they just have nothing. Maybe they're really just going forward with impeachment and they basically have nothing will today. The plot thickens a little bit. Donald Trump and the White House released what they call the transcript of the phone call now to be fair. It's not technically the phone call transcribed and it is a memo that I guess White House staffers take about the phone call but it reads as a transcript so theoretically theoretically could they be leaving something out. Could it have been doctored shore but they did release it and more or less what this is all about is donald trump a kind of I mean look. He never blatantly in the transfer by the way. It's really fascinating to read if you haven't read it. They released it. It's on the White House is twitter page. They posted it. It's out there. Go read it to hear how Donald Trump talks to a foreign leader is very interesting. It's it's you see the sharper side side of Donald Trump. Sometimes Donald trump comes off like this kind of bumbling idiot and sometimes it comes off like a cut throat businessman who's got some savvy and this was more more in my opinion of the ladder but what's going on here in the story really is quite something so it's about him. You could say pressuring the Ukrainian government into doing something for the money that they're getting from America and one of the things amongst others that he seems to want them to do is to look into what was going on with Joe Biden's son. Now what's funny about this is that it's really quite something. I mean you know this. This characterized the trump administration listen in general but really it's like something you've never seen before in politics. The idea that the president is being being impeached or impeachment proceedings are are starting against president four as they would say you know using a foreign adversary to try try to get dirt on his political opponent but really what it is is about the corruption of the front runner of the Democrats so the Republican president it could be impeached four trying to uncover blatant corruption by the Democratic Front runner now this has got to be. I was GONNA say bitter sweet eight but probably just bitter for Joe Biden. I mean it would be bitter sweet if he was the nominee already and the president's being impeached but when you're not when you don't even have the nomination sewed up. This has got to be rough because the whole thing I it's very interesting to watch. MSNBC AND CNN trying to tell the story without telling doing the part about Joe Biden so the story is that Joe Biden Son Okay Joe Biden's son hunter. Biden got a job Obama basically made Joe Biden and the envoy to to Ukraine he then his son Hunter Biden who who has no experience in the energy sector and doesn't speak the language and has no reason to be in this Ukrainian energy company is making six hundred okay a year from this Ukrainian energy company seems blakely indirectly to pay off Joe Biden now Joe Joe Biden on tape brags about the fact that he said they were going to withhold US money unless the prosecutor this company ended up getting investigated gated by this prosecutor in Ukraine and Joe Biden demanded this guy got fired and he bragged on tape at the Council on Foreign Relations that he was going to that he demanded this prosecutor who was looking into this company get fired or and if you didn't they would be withholding US money. He bragged about this openly. This isn't some conspiracy theory so the prosecutor does end up getting fired. That investigation never moves forward. Trump seem to want that investigation reopened trump seem. I'm to suggest that Ukraine should communicate with the attorney general should communicate with Rudy Giuliani so okay so if the worst case scenario if Donald Okay trump is guilty of something here he's Joe. Biden has to be just as guilty as him. I mean how is it you know some horrific thing for for Donald trump to say. Hey we give you all this money. I want you to reopen that investigation before. We give you that money for Joe Biden to say we give you all this money. I want this investigation shut down. If you you want this money in fact wouldn't it seem like the Joe Biden offense was far worse because one person's asking you to investigate something you were already investigating and one one person's asking you to shutdown investigation because it involves. His son seems to be pretty obvious that that would be worse then what trump did anyway this. Is You know. I don't know it's hard not to speculate about things is like this and I don't like to speculate too much but why would the Democrats not wait for at least least a little bit more evidence to come out if they did have more evidence of wrongdoing. Why would they keep it to themselves. That doesn't really seem to make any sense what Oh you'd WanNa do with an impeachment look. You got to think about it this way right. Politically the Democrats Nancy Pelosi has she doesn't care about the AOC's of the world the people who are in in these districts who you know who their base wants you impeach Donald Trump but why didn't Nancy Pelosi Impeach Donald Trump way before this because it's not just about people in you know secured a Democrat districts. She's got people in swing states in states who voted for Donald Trump who could be losing their seats over casting this impeachment vote if it goes bad and it's shown that they had no real evidence and no real reason I mean impeachments pretty heavy thing to do it kind of the nation apart you're you're flirting around around with unseating democratically elected president again not that I care about democracy but these people claim to and most people in this country tree at least claim to so if you were going to do that if you're going to put these people through the situation of making them put their name down and making them vote on this stuff. I think what it seems reasonable to me that what you would wanNA do would be to release as much information as you could to let them know hey people. We have a really good case here. Were fulfilling our constitutional duty. Were not just trying to impeach Donald Trump which we've clearly been doing since he's he's been in office. This isn't just like Oh. All these investigations failed so we're just throwing something else at the wall because that's sure sure does seem to be what it is right now. Now however that none of that is happening which leads me to suspect that really they don't have anything more than what we see ed. I mean look at turned out with the whole Muller investigation. They had nothing more than what we saw. It turned out re when you know when the F. B. I. I started investigating Donald Trump before the muller investigation Gatien they had the I mean. Andrew McCabe said they said well what led you to investigate him and he goes. I don't think it was anything that you guys didn't know about or see you know he fired Komi me. He said that thing about the Russians having Hillary Clinton's emails that that's what we had everything you knew and it's like wow that's it. That's what they had. They had everything we know. I I think right here after this transcripts been released. That's everything that they have. That's my hunch and if so man is is this GonNa be a tough one to sell. I mean I don't know you know. I'm no constitutional expert. I don't know exactly if there's a gray area where you can ask another another country to to you know reopen an investigation. I mean sure it happens. You know it is against his political rival. Maybe there's something there but first of all how many people really even how many people really even think through or ever have to defend why we should be giving Ukraine hundreds of millions of dollars in military assistance to begin with breath. I mean the the funny thing about all. This right is after all that trump. Russia collusion u the Ukraine and Russia have been involved in some some tensions and over the last few years and the idea that Donald trump is so chummy and doing business with the Ukrainians kind of you know destroys the whole narrative that he's a Russian puppet but whatever the off of that you know that's that never happened but it's hard to not speculate about what might be going on and I have heard some people speculate that would donald trump that the Ukrainians knew a lot about the origins of the Russia investigation of the phony collusion witch hunt and the idea that donald trump was maybe trying to get to the bottom of that and work out some type of deal. They're like maybe it's nothing to do with this transcript of this phone call. It was some other deal that they had worked out that just seems a little bit more plausible to me because this seems like a move of desperation from the Democrats. That's that's what it seems like to me and I don't know it'll be interesting to see if anything comes out in that in that direction the other thing. That's you know worth noting and is probably the more important point. The bigger picture here is that you have donald trump. You know worst case scenario being like hey. We give you a lot of money. I think we should get something for that money and this is where a whistle blower will step forward and say something really inappropriate happened happened here in this conversation this is this is the way the deep state works. This is the way government accountability works in the United States of America. Now of course course you think about some of the things that other presidents have done. I mean you think about Barack Obama who started a a drone or I should say started but really built up the drone. Program is bombing countries that we are not at war with and was lying to the American people about it. I mean straight up we he. It's been admitted on national television that his press secretary was instructed not to answer any questions about the drone program they were essentially pretending it didn't exist wonder what type of communications there might have been about this program to bomb. Saudi nations who know the Congress has not declared war against nobody felt a constitutional duty to step up and say anything about that nothing George W Bush with the wiretapping with the outing of CIA agents with instituting torture all of these things. No one felt the need to step up. No one felt the need to start the impeachment process overall that but Donald Trump makes a phone call where he says some inappropriate appropriate things to the Ukraine and this is what's launching an impeachment investigation. It is very strange and very very revealing about what actually can get you in trouble in the United States Federal Mafia. It is really something you know. This is a big a big risk by the Democrats. They're going big on this. One and we'll Z. Y. We will see what what ends up happening. What ends up coming of all of this but from where I'm sitting right now. This looks like this could be their most epic failure yet. of course almost all of the Democratic candidates for president have all voiced their support for for for the impeachment Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren Joe Biden. All of them have gotten in on this and it's GonNa be something. It's going to be something to see what actually ends up happening with all this. I I don't know quite what to say. I don't know quite what to say else anyway but this is really this is this is history. This is history that we're living through for sure and you know Joe Biden's son of course there was obvious shadiness going on there and okay so donald trump wanted to look into this wanted to investigate it. I mean on the bigger philosophical picture. Why why should we be giving these other countries money to begin with and why. Should we not ask for anything in return if we do give them all this. This money doesn't seem that unreasonable and I think to most people this isn't GonNa see that unreasonable and it doesn't seem like they're suggesting that anything criminal happened here because there's not calls to investigate donald trump in any criminal sense. The calls are just for impeachment. Where of course the bar is much lower and you don't actually need to prove any you don't need to prove like for the standard of indicting somebody. There's no you're not going to go to trial where you have to prove something beyond a shadow of a doubt you simply have to get votes in. Congress as as many said before an impeachable offenses anything that Congress determines impeachable offense debate now. You may not believe that that was the original intent of the founders is or maybe you do but in effect that is the reality. If you get Congress to vote with you then you get an impeachment now. Of course they know. Oh that is impeachment is not going through. Donald trump is not going to be removed from office from this impeachment. I shouldn't even say not but very very unlikely unlikely and not that the Republicans wouldn't stab him in the back in a second. I I've always thought that Donald Trump is as a despised by the mainstream Republicans as he is by the mainstream Democrats. There's a lot of evidence to back that up but this is still politics and the idea I mean all of these Republicans would be sacrificing their political future Mutahar if they were to vote to impeach Donald Trump I mean maybe one or two maybe get Mitt Romney in the Senate to vote for that because he's in Utah where there weren't ever a big fans of Donald Trump. Although he did carry that state you know he he was pulling very poorly there up until the election night. I think that was more a rejection of Hillary Clinton than support for Donald Trump and Mitt Romney. Is You know he's a Mormon. He may be able to hold downs Mormons in Utah and vote for them but so many of these Republicans vote against Donald Trump like this. It's it's you know you're you're sacrificing your political future so I highly doubt the Republicans are going I would if it made it that far would vote to impeach Donald Trump so it would just be a situation where you know the house votes to impeach him the Senate. Lets them off much like usually happens in these situations but I think one of the things that's interesting to think about with all of this and who knows exactly but think through what this might do to the country entry I mean if the perception is and from my point of view it's really not far off from the reality but if the perception is that basically the entire media establishment and the political establishment and the deep state establishment have been trying to oust donald trump from the the very beginning that they've tried several different tactics all the way back to when he was candidate talk about them flirting around with the idea of changing the rules news before the Republican National Convention you can talk about the media holding onto that e Hollywood access tape and then releasing a few weeks before the election all these things over over and over again all the negative media attention all of this stuff all of the attempts to get rid of them after he got in and I mean in the transition process the investigations the attempted deep state cu the trump Russia collusion thing which completely fell apart. You have all of these attempts to get him and let's it's just say hypothetically you get him on a transcript. Anyone would read and go alright. I guess maybe he shouldn't Ernest said that I mean it's far from anything like the president is a puppet of Vladimir Putin. You know it's nothing like what you guys always started. This is how literally really Hitler gets brought down. But what would it mean. If you were to bring down a president this way I mean well over sixty million people people voted for Donald trump a lot of them still really like Donald Trump and and how would this be seen again from my perspective not far from what it is but how would this be seen by all the trump supporters well. You wanted this guy out forever. You attempted over and over to rebuff the will of the American can people and in an election year where Democrats seem crazy and they all think he's GonNa win. re-election you guys go ahead and remove him without letting me the American people vote on it. I mean if you wanted to just tear this country apart. I don't know that there's anything you could do that would be more effective than on that and you know it's. It's pretty rich as somebody who is not a fan of democracy. It's pretty rich to see all of these the people who claim to love it so much go this route you know it's like the the whole thing with trump the Russian interference and all this. They interfered in the democratic process in the democratic process. They undermined our democracy democracy this democracy that yet here we are in an election in year. I mean not technically but almost in the election year in election season for sure and you're GONNA move forward with impeachment rather than just. Let's say we'll hey. Let's vote this guy out. Don Donald Trump the one who turned around and release the transcript so everybody can see what it is that he said and I just can't imagine I mean I know there's a certain segment of the population that hates donald trump so much that whatever he does they're are going to be like yeah. That was an impeachable offense but I don't know seems seems like a bit of a stretch to me and and it's if you wanted to push this country you know toward more and more division. This would be the way to do it. It's pretty surprising to me I can't I can't I can't believe after everything they've dangled in front of the American people that this is actually the thing they're going to move forward on. We'll we'll see how it how it turns out. We'll we'll definitely be following here on the show. Oh and we'll keep you guys updated. I'll keep giving you my thoughts on it. All right.

I'm very excited to have this guest in for the Wednesday one on one series. I'd say as excited as I've ever been and to have a guest on the show because this is somebody's had a huge influence on me who I've learned a lot from it is the Great Peter Shift the CEO of Euro Pacific capital and the author author of several great books how economy grows and why it crashes crashproof lot lots of other great ones as well so Mr Peter Schiff. Thank you so much for coming on. Oh my pleasure happy to be part of your program so as people who listen to this show no but I'll just retail quickly the story for you. I was about two thousand and seven so is a twelve years ago. I was first introduced to libertarianism with the Ron Paul Giuliani moment and I really liked that. Guy Ron Paul and I was like wow he he's really making some great points about the war and he kept talking about the free market and how the free market's. GonNa solve all of our problems and it just did. I was like this kind of goes against everything I've been taught and then the economy crashed and I was like I gotTa look into what this guy is talking about as I started doing research on him you were one of the first guys that I found and I found this guy who had predicted with really stunning accuracy what was going to happen in the financial crisis of two thousand eight and then I started reading all of your stuff along with some other free market guys and really got convinced that capitalism was the way to go so I owe you a debt of gratitude. You've helped me develop my perspective on things and understand the world better. What was it like for you. Being a guy who you are a successful for business man and you're a commentator on TV but all the sudden kind of in the early days of of Youtube being a big thing. You had all these videos going viral of everybody laughing at you as as you explain to them that the subprime mortgage scheme was going to take tank the economy. What was it like to go through those days well. I think it was kind of frustrating strating but I did enjoy the exposure that I was getting in at least to the credit of a lot of these networks at the time anyway they had the ought and so I was on quite often and you know they barely let me on now so I think that once a Lotta my predictions came true I think they became a little bit more reluctant to give me the airtime I think when I was kind of like there to provide a little comic relief maybe or just fair and balanced counter-view to the conventional wisdom they had me on with you know great frequency but I'm rarely on these last several years or even since just a financial crisis itself. Maybe they kept me on for about another year so but by two thousand and ten my appearances were way way down and of course there are even fewer now well. Maybe when the next crash comes they'll. They'll call you up. WanNa hear from you again. I used to love those Cable News appearances because it would be you know it reminds me of when I'll see like David Stockman will get an occasional appearance on cable news and it's just whatever the panel a group of people is the way it used to be when you were on there. It was just so obvious that everybody else is just kind of regurgitating. These approved talking points and this one guy has some real thoughts on this thing and it would be such an interesting contrast to watch the the difference between you guys. Let me ask you what was it. Why were you able to see what so many others missed like. What was it in your background. I know your father was a free market guys. You are probably raised kind of understanding some of this stuff but what what had you read. What had you learned in your life that you could see the market. The bubbles developing living in the market. You know the real question is why couldn't everybody else was like. I had any kind of special gift. They were just completely oblivious and the the question is why were they so oblivious and a lot of it has to do with group think a lot of it has to do with the fact that when you're inside a bubble it's very difficult to recognize denies the bubble in fact. I forget who said it but you know when your financial livelihood depends on you not understanding something you generally don't understand it and and so that was the problem I mean everybody had a vested interest in keeping the party going Nobody wanted to even consider that that it could eh but you know I was a lot more objective. I thought as kind of an outsider I was you know I was in the financial business but I was you know I had my own firm. I wasn't part of the establishment so I could see it a lot. More clearly and certainly had the ability to come out and say what I thought I think a lot of other people within the financial community might have had a feeling that I was right but they just didn't have the ability really to come out publicly and say because you know they they had a tow the company line so I had a little bit more freedom in that I was self employed that I can speak my mind and so I was able to do it but I mean it's basic understanding think of economics and finance and money and the fact is that the OH eight financial crisis is obvious that disaster actually was as obvious obvious as the as the housing bubble was and I was not only talking about it with great frequency but I was writing about it. There's all sorts of articles I I wrote for years and I sent them to hundreds of reporters laying out the bubble and now a lot of it was humorous because it was so obvious it was actually funny but people could see that but is obvious is that was the crisis that were headed for now is even more apparent than that one but all of the people that were so complacent that oblivious leading up to the crisis the same people you you know have the same feeling today they think everything's great the economy's booming nothing can go wrong. The Federal Reserve is a bunch of genius. They know what they're doing and this. This economy is about to hit a brick wall and it's a much bigger a wall much higher than the one that they didn't notice you know eight that we smashed into yeah. I remember when I when I found you in two thousand eight and it was at the time John McCain who was the the nominee of the Republican Republican Party. He famously said the fundamentals of the economy are strong and I remember hearing you in an interview respond to that and you said how could the fundamentals of this economy economy be strong. We have an entire economy. That's based off consumer spending instead of production. It's based off deficit financing borrowing money from other the the economy is is inherently based off of other people making our stuff and then us borrowing money so we can buy that stuff from them and that just seems so common sense to me it was a bubble will but McCain was running on the Bush record he was you know basically the third term for Bush so he had to claim the economy was sound sound. That was his campaign strategy. You know it's unfortunate to that. John McCain actually interrupted his campaign to go and vote for tarp. Yeah that's right and you know I actually would have voted for. McCain had he interrupted his campaign to vote against harp but because he couldn't even do that one thing I didn't vote for you know and I don't think I even voted in that election for president because Ron I mean Gary Johnson was running but he it didn't make the ballot in my state of Connecticut so I don't think I was. I just think I abstained. I couldn't vote for Obama but I couldn't vote for a guy that would vote for tar art so I didn't have a choice. Did you get Ron Paul Primary vote in there. I think so no I I can't remember if he was on the ballot in Connecticut or not right yeah there were there were no there were no good options and truthfully speaking even if McCain had won we probably would've seen government spending right around the same levels as it probably would have been. Everything Obama did wrong plus bombing around or something like that so I you know the Republicans have never really offered a free market alternative alternative so in the US neither trump. I mean trump. All the Republicans are making the same mistakes to where they raised Bush in a way the way they thought we had a great economy economy under Bush because he cut taxes. That was a bunch of nonsense. We had a phony economy because the Fed cut rates well. The same thing is happening under the trump in fact although the feds started out hiking rates but the thing is they started where the rates were so low that even though they were hiking rates there were still a massive monetary stimulus. EMME lous inflame the economy but then trump was able to add fuel to that by cutting taxes but now the Fed is cutting rates as well in fact. They just went back to quantitative easing now. They're not going to admit that because they're not calling quantitative easing but it's the exact same thing and so you know a rose by any other name although in this case it's not a rose roses are good. I this is definitely bad. This is you know debt monetization and inflation op but you know trump is made the same mistakes as a Bush cut taxes but increased government spending means bigger deficits and then pretend end that spending that borrow money equates to a stronger economy and economic growth it doesn't it's just setting ourselves up for the next collapse which is going to be much bigger than the one that has happened under Bush and this time it could start in trump's first term. Bush was able to delay the day of reckoning to his second term because the DOT com bubble wasn't really that big and so the Fed was able to reflate a housing bubble that was able to push postpone that recession until Oh seven eleven oh eight but that is why we had Obama but this collapse should it begin before the twenty twenty election. This is GonNa be what gives us somebody much much worse than Obama. Potentially Elizabeth Warren who looks like she's the front runner at this point but just imagine in a war in presidency especially if the Democrats retake the house which they will do. I mean if Warren wins the White House. There's no question that the Democrats will pick pick up enough seats to give the Democrats control of the executive and the legislative branches yeah. It's really terrifying and what's really scary about it is that the narrative almost writes itself. It's like here look we went with Donald Trump this business man this capitalist. He cut taxes capitalism's the problem. This is why we need the government to come in and save people not like Obama like really juice the government up so what do you got your predictions right in two thousand and sixty thousand seven. Is that what you see happening. What do you think the government will be. I've seen that happen for awhile in fact I think the democratic narrative is better than that. I think their whole strategy he is donald trump inherited a great economy from Obama because Obama fixed the economy that Bush broke and then he it was great great and he handed it off to trump who inherited all the good work right that Obama did and then like everything else that donald trump is inherited in his his life. He's squandered that great economy with tax cuts and deregulation and put us right back into the same ditch that Bush put us in and now we need another savior like Obama only because now it's a bigger ditch and it's even worse now. We need to go with a complete overhaul the economy me. We need to reject capitalism because this is proven. Capitalism has now proven that is a complete failure and so what we need is the opposite of capitalism. We need socialism. We need the government now to come in and Nash Lot takeover stuff and provide all this free stop and we really need to get those rich people and the bankers because you know they're the one they're the reason the communists such a disaster and Bisa perfect script. What's going to happen and it's it's. It's not good for the country. I believe me is is there any way to cushion the landing in any sense like if let's say say we got some hypothetical world we got. Peter Schiff and Ron Paul and David Stockman a lot of people who really understand the economic situation. We're in you guys got elected. Are you guys got in control. I mean it seems to me like who is who is the Fed chairman under Reagan Volcker Logger Volcker who raised rates will you can't even do that today. Because of the debt that we're carrying around I mean anything we can do. Well you have to do that but then you have to default on a lot of the debt which we have to do I mean there's no easy way out of this. A lot of people are going to lose a lot of money. No matter what you do but there is a right way to approach this and there's the way we're approaching it. which is the wrong way but if it were up to me the way we can ease the pain and it's not going to be painless? There's no there's no way to do that right. It's trying to do that. That is the reason that the problem is so big all the years of kicking the can down the road fact even Jim Bullard was interview today on CNBC and he admitted if you could read between the lines but he said the reason he wants to cut rates because the Fed is basically going to be powerless in the next recession and so we should do whatever we can to delay that recession for as long as possible but the the problem is whatever the Fed does delay the recession just makes that recession worse so rather than delay it make it worse. Let's embrace it and get it over with but what we could do to ease the transition is to shrink the size of the federal government so that the federal government is a smaller drag job on the economy. I mean we're giant weight. That is anchoring the economy. we need to lighten the load and so the government needs to get a small as possible able by cutting as much spending as possible and I'm not talking about just waste fraud and abuse. I'm talking about the real meat of what the government spending we gotta go to the entitlements and and other agencies and just get rid of entire departments. We need to really shrink down to size because we can't afford this enormous government. We've been borrowing money to pay for it but we're not going to do that anymore. Because we need to let interest rates go up so that we can have more savings and investment but if interest rates go up. We can't afford to pay the debt on a Monday. We've already borrowed so that has to be defaulted on but if we're going to rebuild the infrastructure in the manufacturing base of this country we can't do that and and support a massive government at the same time so we have to make a choice. We want big government or big economy. Do we want economic growth and prosperity or we WANNA live in a welfare state. You know where we share the misery. You gotta make those choices but unfortunately none of the politicians are willing to level with the voters and of course the voters at this point you know after after you know spending a lifetime government schools are two brainwashed even understand the truth even if it was told to them yeah well that's that's for for short so during during the Obama years it. It seems like he did pretty much. Everything wrong economically speaking. I mean you had the longest this period really. There's nothing else like it that you could compare it to the longest period of near zero zero interest rates record high government spending and even even though this did keep the next recession at bay. I agree with your perspective at it's making it worse than that. It's inevitable but even even with in this environment with artificially low interest rates. It seems like something's happening here. Where you see the populism on the right wing rise populism socialism socialism on the left wing rise and so many people it seems like even while you're keeping the recession at bay get punished with zero percent interest rates? I mean the savers get punished. People on fixed incomes get punished. Everybody who's gotten who experienced a recovery under Obama seems to be people who were politically connected or playing in the Wall Street casino and for the regular working people. Things didn't really recover so even if we don't even before the crash isn't it bad for the economy. It's been bad the entire time because everything that they have done to postpone. The pain has basically prevented the cure right so the disease keeps keeps getting worse instead of restructuring the economy based on sounder consumption and savings and investment vestment. We just continued to perpetuate the bauble and we do enrich certain segments of the economy that feed off all of the free money that the the government is or the Federal Reserve. Is You know sprinkling on on the banks and on Wall Street so people who own a lot of financial assets benefited from the inflation flation that the Fed was created but regular people who work for a living and earn wages they saw their cost of living rise much faster than their wages and they kept borrowing more and more money to make ends meet and so their net worth fell so Americans were poor as a result of that so called recovery and a lot of that frustration revealed with self in the polls in two thousand sixteen. I I mean that's one of the reasons that I was so confident. That trump had a very good chance of winning. I didn't think it was a sure thing but I thought he was more likely to win and lose and I was saying that publicly because I believe that there was a lot of disgruntled people out there who didn't believe the lies they were being fed by the Obama Administration or by the media or or by Wall Street about this great recovery because they were living in the real world. Not This fantasy world that Wall Street was living in and that's what happened I mean Donald Trump felt their pain. He told the truth about the phony nature of the recovery. The unemployment numbers were phony the GDP numbers were phony. we had a lousy economy and he was going to make America great again and you know the unfortunate. Thing is the minute he became president all the phone numbers were no longer phony how the big fat ugly bubble became a boom and he basically adopted everything he criticized and he's now demanding that the. Fed Cut rates more or do more. QE He wants to keep this whole a phony economy going long enough for him to get reelected to another term and by the way you mentioned that we had record deficits. It's under Obama will trump has already broken. Those records and we're not even in an official recession yet yeah. It's it's actually kind of hilarious and I don't even think trump sees the contradiction election but when he's out there talking about how it's the best economy in the history of the world but this damn fed won't put interest rates to zero by what by what you you know economic theory. Could that make any sense even by keynesianism. This is not how you're supposed to do it but also he said the economy under Obama was is the worst economy and now we have the best economy ever but statistically there's really not a difference. I mean the GDP growth under trump is pretty much indistinguishable from the GDP growth in the second term of Obama job creation is actually slower under trump than it was under Obama Kosor real wage increases. Yes the unemployment rate is lower but because it's been trending lower the whole time and so all we did is continue the trend that was in motion for a long time but when Obama was president trump said that's all phony. That's all a lie. It's a con. It's a fraud. I don't believe those government numbers. Unemployment is twenty percent thirty percent and now he expects us to believe the numbers right. which is it's a bunch of? Dodd sets. I mean he's basically turned on a dime on and nobody really holds them to. Although I do believe that come the two thousand twenty election the Democrats and the media are going to take trump up to task I think they're giving them kind of free ride now lulling him into a false sense of of security but I think it's very easy to bash him over the head because trump could be his own best critic because a lot of the things that trump was criticizing the economy about I mean not only did he not solve those problems. He's now you know basically doing exactly what he was criticizing. Yeah no absolutely I mean I think candidate trump was absolutely right when he said you know the unemployment numbers are are kind of phony because they don't account for all the people who have dropped out of the labor force and he was absolutely right when when he said that basically this recovery is is not what it's cracked up to be in and and it's like I've heard you talk about this before the CPI. Numbers are kind of phony. They don't really take into account. I know they're not kind of phony. They are folded they you. You know it's and it's not a conspiracy. They just came up with a formula that basically takes price hikes and diminishes them so that the final number her shows a much lower increase than the actual increase in costs and so that real cost of living is is rising a lot faster than the official measures but then the Fed says we don't have enough inflation. We need more. We actually have more than we don't need any of it actually but we have a a lot more than the numbers reveal but because the numbers are wrong we you know we keep on a cray words like if you're if you're driving driving your car and your speedometers broken and you're driving at thirty miles an hour but you're phenomena says Tanis. Oh we gotta go faster you step on the gas and then and you're going fifty but it's still says ten. It'll go faster because I'm you know you're going to get into an accident because you're speeding because you're you're looking at a speedometer and you're not paying attention to the real world. If you looked around you would see that. You're not going ten miles an hour but if you're just GonNa Look Stupid Broken Hospital Monitor you know then you're not gonNa know and so if you just look at the government speedometer of inflation the CPI you don't really know what's going on even though that number is going up but actually stop if you actually really buys stuff and by the way the other things that trump was saying as a candidate. I mean you said that you know we were losing on trade right. We had shoots trade deficits. Elect me and I'm GonNa make the trade desk go away. The trade deficits are bigger than ever. Obama never ran trade deficits as big as one dollars. Trump is running in fact you know he said that the the worst trade deal that was ever negotiate in the history of trade deals was nafta worst deal ever he negotiates. Nafta to which is almost identical to Nafta he just calls it the US MCA and says this is the greatest trade deal ever when there's basically hardly any difference the only differences. Nafta had a better name than the one we got now but it's basically basically the same deal repackage but it's gone from the worst one in history to the greatest. Thank you remember with Donald Trump's candidate. He actually talked about paying off the national debt like going to pay it all off right. We're GONNA BE OUTTA debt right. We got more debt than ever there. Are you know we're we're bleeding reading so all of these a statements are going to be used against trump and in the next election and Elizabeth Warren to she's out there warning about economic crash warning about a phony economy in too much debt and problems in the banking system and she's right now for the wrong reasons but she is going to look a lot smarter than trump trump when she's going to be able to say I warned about these problems I told you so. Trump was in denial trump thought everything was great. He doesn't know anything and so vote for me. And of of course she's going to take all the problems and make much much worse yet seems like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders and I agree with you. I think Elizabeth Warren is more likely to come out as the nominee but both of them seem to tap into this kind of left wing populist energy and they do address some very real problems. It's just they have the exact wrong solution for every one of them but the exact wrong 'cause yet well yes. That's the irony of it is. It's government meant that has caused all the problems that are so upset about yet. They're blaming it on capitalism right and they want more government solution. What are the what are the best examples and I just talked about it on my podcast last week. Is the student loan problem which would not be a problem but for the government the government is the only reason we have the student loans and without student loans college would be a lot cheaper just the way it was before student loans so you have a problem that only exists because Democrats Democrats liberal politicians wanted to buy the votes of eighteen year olds who had just got the vote and they wanted to give them something for nothing so they promised to make college more affordable all by guaranteeing lows and then basically they took something. That was very affordable anybody who wanted to go to college before the government got involved in loans. Anybody could go either your the parents paid for it or you got a job and you work your way through college but nobody graduated with any debt and now we have this massive problem right people. Kohler broke. They're sweating. They're drowning and hundred thousand dollars or more of debt and you have all these. Democrats talking about how big this problem is and how they have to solve it. They caused it and their solution is to get the governor even more involved to provide free education which is going to cost a fortune. You know nothing is as expensive as what the government provides is for free so if you think education is expensive now. Where do you see how expensive it is when it's free but what we should do is go back to a free market in in education and get the government completely out of it right no more aid. No more loans guaranteed direct. Get get rid of it all and then if we do that we can actually really have some debt relief for people who were unfortunately led down this primrose path by the government and the educational establishment that the Prophet so much see that that's who makes money off of student loans is the colleges the colleges benefit but under a free market they would not do that under a a free market colleges would have to provide quality education at an affordable cost otherwise they'd have no customers but the government make sure they have customers no matter how L. Lousy the product is or how overprice it is. Yeah I actually do have some degree of sympathy for some of these kids who come out with so much debt because it's this giant racket where the government gets to buy votes the financial companies get to make loans that are guaranteed by the government and the colleges get to keep these huge profits and the kids get stuck with a word list list degree and a bunch of debt and about eighty percent of them probably never should have been in college to begin with their little just going. There ought to get Jeremy. This is a terrible thing that we've done into our young people and look at you know you read these articles today about all these women that basically have resorted to prostitution in order to to get through school so the government is turned our daughters and our sisters into prostitutes instagram prostitutes whatever but from prostitute. I mean it's just it's more efficient prostitution. No a lot of them are seeking arrangement or whatever these these sites are sugar babies and they find guys who have money and that's how they how they get through school cool really unfortunately the young men don't have that. They can't even do that right there. There's not there's not many women that are going to pay for sex so yeah you know it's funny because I think that a lot of what fuels the populist movements. It's kind of what you like. The analogy used before you're going fifty miles an hour but the it says ten miles an hour but there's still a lot of people in the back of that truck. We're like feels like we're going faster. You Know I. I know that they're telling us. We're not I mean I was just talking to my my my mother-in-law and father in law the other day and they were just coming. They're like man everything so expensive these days like the even they're not economists. You know what I mean. They're they're just going. Ma'am things really are like the the prices are getting out of control. It's like people notice this and one of the things that I've heard a lot of people talking about Elizabeth. Warren has talked about this and Tucker Carlson Carlson has talked about this is that they're like man. People just can't afford to have families anymore like even incomes isn't enough look look. My grandfather was a carpenter. He came to this country and he was thirteen. He had no money and didn't even speak English yet. He was able to support eight children and my grandmother. My Grandmother Mother didn't have a job and that was the way it was back then I mean nobody's nobody's wife worked. I mean even if you didn't have a high school degree degree you could support a family and it should be even easier for uneducated people to support families today with all the technology that we didn't have one hundred years ago that that that we have today no it's all because of government interference in the free market we would have a much more vibrant economy but for the government interference in capitalism hapless and of course whenever the government interferes with with capitalism it screws up and then capitalism gets the blame and the government takes advantage of that by saying you see capitalism doesn't work we need more government and then you know governor keeps getting bigger and bigger and doing more are and more damage to the economy yeah and this is the problem when you don't understand the cause of the problem and it seems like you know. I was talking about this on on one of my last shows those where the Joe Biden was defending obamacare because he was like well people people really like that. They're twenty-six-year-old can stay on their insurance and you know he's making the point is like okay fine. I understand people like that but no one asks the underlying question there which is obviously why does it twenty six year old need to be dependent on their parents. I mean when my grandfather it was twenty six. He was like you know. Seven years removed from a war I mean he was like supporting himself by the why do you need to be dependable. Bit were keeping kids is in school now until they're twenty four twenty five twenty six thirty sometimes because in college degree gets you nowhere so a lot of people stay in school to get a masters. PhD Hd but since there's so many kids collars that shouldn't be there. The classes are so full that to get a four year degree takes a lot of people six years. Look you know if you remember. I went down to Zuccotti Park. Oh Yeah of course great Pie Wall Street. You guys haven't seen you have to go to youtube and watch that video. It's one of the greatest if things ever it's Peter Schiff one percent occupy Wall Street. You'll find that I'm sorry go ahead but the reason I went down there again you you made the point yourself is that the problems are there are but everybody is pointing their finger in the wrong direction. They're pointing it at capitalism and not government not the Federal Reserve. That's where they should be looking now because Wall Street benefits from these bad policies. Wall Street gets the blame because they're they're seen has the face of the problem and in a way they're complicit in this by not speaking up right. They're taking all this free money and you know they're conspicuously a you know flaunting it but you know in the end. They're ultimately the setting the stage for their own destruction because they they are creating a monster here because when we get Socialist Ryan this country you know I you get in bed with the government and the government does what what happens when you get in bed with somebody and that's what's going to happen all these private businesses that have been cozying up to the government to get all that free money. They're going to lose a lot more than that. When all of a sudden the government totally destroys the businesses because what the real motivation is of the left what guys like Bernie Sanders Really WanNa do is they are dyed-in-the-wool socialists. I don't believe in private property. They want the government to nationalize the means of production from each according to his ability to each according to his need these guys believe this nonsense cents I mean most people are smart enough. They only believe in socialism when their kids but by the time they grow up you know they're smart enough to know what doesn't work well. Bernie Sanders never grew up. I mean how old is the guy. He's still believes. It's like it's like a little kid. Believe in Santa Claus in fact Santa Claus makes more sense than socialism. I mean Bernie Sanders went to the Soviet Union for his honeymoon in the late eighties. This is the late eighties. I mean if you didn't realize the Soviet Union wasn't working out by that point they they were a few years off from collapse and he was still like this is a good system. They got going here and they just want to repeat it here. All these socialists they always think the problem. Is You know the the people didn't do it right. You know it they. They didn't have real socialism. You know but you know look the more socialism you have the poor you are the more freedom you have the richer you. Are you know every place in the world. Now I mean nobody is a pure capitalist country. You have elements of socialism and you have elements of a freedom which is capitalism but to the degree that you can minimize socialism and maximize freedom. You're more prosperity but what Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders Sanders wants to do is dramatically limit freedom. You know they're promising free stuff but free stuff is not freedom right first of all for one person to get something for free. Somebody else has to pay for it against their will. The government doesn't have anything it only can redistribute what it takes so the more freebies. He's the government promises. The more of citizens are being enslaved to to to meet those commitments so you know what freedom means freedom from government. That's what people oh came to America for. Freedom means the government leaves you alone. I and then you're free to pursue your own happiness and your own self interest. It's not about trying to steal things from other people. You know government is supposed to secure your rights protect. The things that you own from People WanNa steal it but today what we need protection action from his own government because that's their own government. That's doing the theft. Only they want to call it taxation and regulation but it's really legal stuff yeah and it is really I mean it is unbelievable unbelievable how much they steal. I just started making decent money and man. There's a hoof what I what I have to pay for this government that I hate so much really outrageous well. I finally was able to you know in my fifties. Check out by moving to Puerto Rico pay taxes and I still have to spend a lot of money filling out my tax returns but at least the numbers on the checks are a lot smaller now because I'm living in Puerto Rico encourage anybody that wants to be free to come on down here. If if I keep making money I'm going to be joining you in Puerto Rico one of these days soon. I was disgusted by these last couple of years how much I've had to pay taxes and I'm sure I mean I'm sure there's pay off the yet yeah. No I know wisman warrants coming after all good. So what do you think you know I. I've certainly been very surprised. I think you have to correct me. If I'm I'm wrong and a lot of people have that the bubble that we're in right now has been able to last this long. I mean I I did not think we would get through eight years of this is this because all of the central banks in all of the industrialized world are kind of working in coordination with these low interest rates. How would they been able to keep it going this long. Do you think yeah that is certainly part of it and you know I'm in the same boat as you. I you know when I was writing my first book crashproof at a profit from the coming economic collapse when I was writing about how I thought the bursting the housing bubble would lead to a great recession which would ultimately to an economic crash. I didn't think that we'd be sitting around in two thousand nineteen and and the collapse that I was writing about wouldn't have occurred yet even though all the other events that I predicted that would precipitate the crash have occurred and you know what did happen is yes. No all the central banks around the world particularly in in Europe that you see be and Japan basically did the same thing that we we did they slashed interest rates and so on a relative basis they made the dollar appear more attractive and people began to be more concerned about what was happening happening in Europe or what was happening in Japan and we were the beneficiaries of all that flight capital because it kept the whole thing going we have barring more money going deeper into debt so that we can keep on consuming and keep this phony economy going and that's what happened because we succeeded in kicking the can down the road for all these years. All all of the problems just got bigger so now we're dealing with a bigger bubble and so when it pops it's going to be far more or disruptive. Far more painful had we been digging our way out of the whole for the last decade. We'd probably be out of it by now instead. We've been digging the hole bigger. We're in the Grand Canyon of economic now. I mean who knows how long it's GONNA take to get out of this yeah. Do you think I mean I know in the past. What's what's triggered. These economic crashes has been raising interest rates but we just saw the Fed as you pointed out earlier I mean they raised rates under trump but it was too rates that would have been historic lows if they were at any other time in my lifetime and then they are immediately pulling rates back even without a recession coming. Do you have an idea of what you think is going to be the triggering event or what's going to bring on this next inevitable crash. I don't think it's going to be the Fed. Raising rates is going to be the markets. Markets raising rates despite the Fed's efforts to suppress them and we've already seen that that's why the Fed has had to go back to. Qa four only they're just calling it. You know now are repurchase agreements or you know permanent open market operations whatever it is but they're trying to artificially suppress rates because they realize that when rates go up this time the economy's down for the count and so they're just doing everything they can to postpone the day of reckoning as long as they can even though the more they succeed the more we will fail because they can't stop the day of reckoning all they can do is make it worse by delaying it but for a politician delay is is is is the only thing you can do because you're just trying to get to an election and you don't care that's why it would have been nice if trump actually was a statesman who cared about the country tree instead of just a politician about his own re-election but unfortunately that's what he is. I think the Federal Reserve chairman they just want to keep it going until you know they can either get reappointed it or you know go land a book deal or get some you know job in at some private bank so they just don't want it to blow up the help you know but but I I don't think the Fed is going to going to raise rates the way you know Volker. We don't have the guts to do that or the ability to do that but the market's going to raise rates but I think when this thing really we start to fall apart. We're seeing it now in gold but gold isn't taking off. I mean gold hit a six-year high were but fifteen hundred let's see Gogo through two thousand and really start to move move higher. We need to see the dollar breakdown. That hasn't happened yet. It's still you know it's week against goal which shows that it's week but you know the foreign exchange markets. Sir Not showing that because the dollar is not as weak as some other currencies right now but when the dollar becomes the weakest currency which you will. That's another sign that it's about the hit the fan yeah and if you start to see the long end the bond market falling with the dollar as the price of gold is rising. That's it. It's over right well. It's not pleasant to think about but this stuff is seeming more and more inevitable. I mean you look at where the Fed the Fed asset the balance sheet at the Federal Reserve. What was it was something like eight hundred something billion dollars in two thousand eight when the when the market's tanked and what is it four and a half trillion dollars or something like that he got to two or the. Oh they started selling down okay and they brought it down to below three point eight trillion. It's now back above three point eight trillion because in the most recent week they expanded the balance sheet by seventy five billion. We'll find out tomorrow how much they expanded by in the following week. I'm sure it grow again so the balance sheet is going to go up. I I think by the time the two thousand twenty election comes around the balance sheet will be bigger than four and a half trillion it hit before they started to shrink it but ultimately ultimately. It's going much much higher than that. I mean that's you know especially. If Sanders becomes president because there is no way that this laundry list of government programs is going to be funded by taxing the rich because I have no doubt that they'll try to tax the rich. It's just that when you do when you when you tax you you know you end up altering behavior and you impact the economy. They WANNA tax wealth while there's can be a lot less wealth to tax once. They have a wealth tax. They're going to raise the income tax but there's GONNA be a lot less income tax not only for the rich but for the people that the rich no longer employ because they're no longer trying to make money that the government's going to confiscate so the whole economy is going to end up being smaller and so the government's going to redistributing a smaller pie and so they may raise taxes a lot but they're not. GonNa raise revenue a lot in fact. They may get less revenue but they're going to increase spending dramatically. Where's all that money going to come from the Fed is going to create it out of thin air and is going to buy up all the government bonds that the Treasury has to sell so that we can finance all these freebies and and so we talked earlier about the rising cost of living. It's going to be spiraling out of control. I mean you know it's going to be like the one thousand nine hundred seventies only on steroids so what can be able to to protect themselves precious metals above my shoulder older right. There's a logo for her shift gold so people could buy gold by some silver my my company shift gold has got great prices. I don't think anyone's anyone's going to beat us. make sure you get the most gold and silver you can for your money and pay as little premiums possible over the spot market but you'd have up people definitely should be doing that. They should be getting out of US financial assets entirely I mean if you're retired or close to retirement and you WANNA stay retired instead of watching in your money retire and having to go back to work doing who knows what you need to move your account to let me manage it for you. Your Pacific capital is a company. We do asset management. I have mutual funds that we run separately managed accounts we gotta get Outta Dodge. You gotta get invested not only in precious metals and mining stocks but there's a lot of I'm good conservative companies all around the world in countries that are not nearly as screwed up as the United States We'll get good dividends in currencies that will retain a lot of their purchasing power unlike the dollar. That's GONNA lose most of its purchasing power. I mean the good thing about my investment. Strategies in foreign stocks is. I don't have to be right for you to make money even if I'm wrong. The US stock market is at a record high valuation relative to Overseas Markets and particularly emerging markets so even if none of the bad things happen. I think investors are going to do a lot better investing abroad than they will investing in the US but if I am right and we get this collapse then it's going to be a even bigger difference. Awesome is going to be a difference between a retirement and and working every day until until you drop debt if you want to preserve your standard of living and in fact I think there's an opportunity to actually grow your standard of living. There's GonNa be a lot of people who are going to be impoverished. Who Don't see this coming but there will be some people who see the writing on the wall and have the courage to act act on what they read in advance. They're actually GONNA profit. my only concern is that the government takes the prophets away right. I mean that's going to be a problem. I can make people a lot of money and then the government says all right. You're in the ninety percent tax bracket. You know what are you. GonNa do there but at least I can help people avoid the losses to inflation flation entered the market by having people entrust our retirement accounts IRAS whatever money they have under management and I'll get it invested around the world in the safest. Hey I can find in the assets that I think will deliver the best real return relative to inflation and a weak dollar well. I I appreciate that and I appreciate you coming on the show.

The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer

Trump declares "I never worked for Russia" as transcripts show FBI debated if he followed directions of Kremlin; Trump declares "I never worked for Russia" as transcripts show FBI debated if he followed directions of Kremlin; Washington Post: trump detail

"Happening now, it's a disgrace. After first refusing to answer, President Trump says he never worked for Russia following the very idea a disgrace. But stunning new disclosure show. The FBI had looked into whether the president was following the directions of Mosca matter of interpretation the president reportedly acted to keep us talks with veteran. Putin secret, even confiscating as interpreters notes leaving top US officials in the dark about his conversations with the Russian leader will democrat lead committees. And now subpoena the interpretive setting the bar. The president calls the whole Russia investigation. Big fat hoax, but his nominee for attorney general. William bar is promising like, the special counsel finishers probe and says the results should be made public and shipping. The blame post show. The public clearly blames the president and the Republicans for the government shutdown, but the president won't budge on his border wall playing. Democrats for shutdown that he promised own. I'm wolf Blitzer. You're in the situation room. It's come down to this the US president publicly declaring that he quote never worked for Russia. Trump took that extrordinary step today after studying revelations raise new Preston's about his seeming reverence for ladder Putin. They in food disclosures at the FBI opened an investigation to determine if the president was secretly working at direction of the Kremlin. And that he'd went to great lengths the high the details of his private talks with the president today called the rush investigation a big fat hoax. But as a three general nominee is already pledging to let special counsel, Robert Muller finishes investigation and says he believes the results should be made public hospital congressman Joaquin Castro of the intelligence committee, and our correspondents and analysts are also standing by with full coverage. Let's begin with our chief White House. Correspondent Jim Acosta. Jim it has to be I R US president denying that. He's worked for Russia. That's right wolf. It's a jarring thing to hear from commander and chief of the US President Trump did that responding to series of bombshell reports on the Russian vestich in insisting he has never worked on behalf of the Kremlin. The president is facing new questions in the Russia probe just as he is refusing to budge from his demand for border wall in order to reopen. The government. President Trump's response to the question as to whether he has been working on behalf of Russia can be summed up in one word yet. Never worked for Russia. Not only did I never worked for Russia. I think it's a disgrace that you even ask that question because it's a whole big fat hoax. It just hawks president push back on a series of hair-raising reports on the rush investigation. Both the New York Times and CNN reported that be I agent launched an inquiry into the president's decision to fire the bureau's director James Comey in twenty seventeen to find out whether Mr. Trump had done so directly benefit the Russian government presidents still defends that decision. I guess they started it because I fired Comey which was a great thing I did for country. So the people doing that investigation people that have been caught that are known scoundrels there in I guess, you could say that thirty top president initially justified the Komi firing by saying he. Had an ax to grind Gicquel Russia pro when I decided to just do it. I said to myself, I said, you know, this rusher thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story over this past weekend. The president didn't give a direct answer when he was asked. Whether he was working on behalf of the Russians are you now or have you ever worked for Russia? Mr president. I think is the most insulting thing I've ever been asked. I think it's the most insulting article I've ever had written. And if you read the article you'd see that they found absolutely nothing. White House is also scrambling for answers after the Washington Post reported Mr. Trump tried to conceal his private meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin by taking notes from interpreter and instructing that person to stay quiet after one face to face encounter at a summit in Germany and 2017 age. The president say he was just worried about leaks on the president at that time in two thousand seventeen with suffering from a great number of leaks. We're always concerned about leaks, obviously, particularly national security Democrats are seizing the new revelation saying they may explain why the president seems eager to accept Putin's denials that Moscow interfered in the twenty sixteen election like he did in Helsinki last year have great confidence in my intelligence people. But I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today. I have President Putin. He just said it's not Russia. I will say this. I don't see any reason why. It would be Hillary Clinton. Democrats say may have been onto something after all. Well, that's because he'd rather have a puppet as president and no day. No pun. It's pretty clear. It's pretty clear you won't admit the Russian president is also digging in his heels on whether to reopen the government still insisting on his border wall, though, we seem to rule out to clearing a national emergency to force the military to build it. Gency? This is so simple. You shouldn't have to new polls continue to show the public blames the president more. So than Democrats for the shutdown. That's not how the president laid it out. What he spoke to a group of farmers in New Orleans. The government remained shut down for one reason. And one reason only the Democrats will not fund border security now getting back to Russia. President brushed off any worries that he was trying to hide his interactions with Putin talking with reporters earlier today insisting that those encounters with the Russian leader have been what he called successful. But that's exactly what concerns Democrats who also say the president's meetings with Putin can be described as people for the Russians wolf Jim Acosta at the White House. Thank you very much dramatic developments. Indeed, let's bring in our senior Justice correspondent Evan Perez and our Justice reporter, Shimon pro capacity, MMA, why would the president go to these extraordinary links to keep the contents of his meetings with Putin secret, even from some of this. National security advisers who have the highest top secret security clearances, it certainly is extraordinaire when you think about it wolf, how many months we've been talking about this, and we still don't really have direct answers. As to why the president continues to behave like this. And it's caused a lot of suspicion. You can understand why people who are in this space in the national security space have been concerned for quite some time about what was said in these meetings because really the only other person in this meeting is what Putin in all of these meetings. No, other officials are usually allowed in and the only other American official would be the translator. And what we've learned is that even some of the information that translate may have had those notes were taken away from the translator. So certainly a lot of concern among national security people those who have worked who work there now, and certainly lot of people who have left that something is going on. And according to Washington Post, the translator was still don't say a word about that meeting too. Anyone and the president wants your notes, right wolf. And look I mean, I think the president has had a change of behavior since the beginning of his presidency. If you remember early in the presidency, there was some of his some of his calls were leaked details of those caused calls were leak, I believe the Washington Post. And so he has become a lot more secretive in some of his meetings with other world leaders as well. But look there's no other relationship like the relationship with Russia of essay because of their their their their actions during the two thousand sixteen election and a great deal of suspicion about what exactly let him be Putin is up to not only with regard to the United States. But also his actions in Europe, I think this is why it actually needs to dysfunction in the way his own administration is able to function in the way they're able to manage the relationship with Russia and our allies because it's it's amazing that the Russians know everything that happened during those meetings, but the president's advisors on Russia with these topsy. Krit security clearances they're still in the dark. I mean, I've never heard of anything like that before. So now, the leadership the new democratic leadership of the house intelligence committee, the house foreign affairs committee. I take their thinking of subpoenaing the interpreter trying to get a hold of the the notes, maybe even asking Rex Tillerson. The former secretary of state who participated in one of those Trump meetings with Putin also to testify, so here's here's some of the issues with that. I think some people are concerned that bringing in a translator before members of congress would hurt future diplomacy efforts have perhaps because presidents need to know that in these meetings. There is a high level of confidentiality that certain things won't be shared, and perhaps there is concerned that if you do bring this translator before members of congress -cerned information could be released could hurt future efforts presidents may not want to bring certain people into these meetings. But the fact of the matter is we don't even know how much translator. Will know about these meetings? Because from what we're told is that the translators when they take these notes generally words that they just want to confirm some something that they're not sure about what they're translating that. It's not necessarily a readout of what these meetings are about. And the translator may not even remember at this point. What was said in these meanings? We'll see the Democrats have been talking about doing this for quite some time. There are two different committees that want to do this. It would be highly unprecedented for them to do something. Like this. We've seen the Republican certainly do highly unprecedented on president things in subpoenaed information or or putting information out into the public. This would certainly be a somewhat highly highly certainly would be caused a lot of concerns for people within the diplomatic world would be extrordinary. Any of the has learned Evan after the president fired. Then director James Komi, the bureau began investigating the president was taking steps that some ficials thought was Ben. Official to Russia steps that some officials continue to believe he's taking right now. Right. I think some of the some of this testimony, which came from VISA officials to the hill. I think explain a lot of what was going on the alarm that was going on inside the FBI at the time after the firing of James Comey. Look, I mean you talking about a president or candidate who openly was hostile and talking about denigrating our intelligence services. He talked about undermining the importance of NATO, for instance, these are things that the Russians, of course, really liked to hear he praised how Putin manage his own country. So I think you can see why there are certain people at the FBI who had some concerns and so the sided to launch us investigation. What we don't know wolf is the answer to that. Whether those those initial suspicions have been confirmed in the year and a half or so of investigation. That's what Robert Muller is going to tell us eventually when that when his report is finally complete very significant. Ari guys. Thanks, very. Much joining us now democratic congressman walking Castro, Texas. He's a member of both the intelligence and the foreign affairs committees. Congressman thanks for joining our says, you know, FBI officials apparently debated a range of possibilities as they opened the investigation into the president's behavior. They consider the possibility that the president was completely innocent. But also entertain that theoretical worst case scenario that the president was acting at the behest of the Russians based on all the evidence you've seen where on that spectrum. Does the reality? Obviously wolf that's a tough question. You know, when this story broke last week in many ways, it's jarring story for any American to read the idea that the person at the very top of American government. The president of the United States would be an agent of the Russian government or somehow helping Russia particularly given the history between the United States and Russia, but on the other hand for those of us who have watched Donald Trump's words and actions over the past three years in some ways, it's not a surprise at all because he's been very friendly to Russia. He has never said a bad word about Ladimir Putin. He's done things that are essentially what the Russians would want in terms of foreign policy. He's undermined our lions with NATO. He he said he was going to pull out of Syria and a half hazard way. He's basically aligned himself with with autocrats around the world and weakened our relationship with our long standing allies. So Russia could not have asked for. A friendlier United States president. When did you first learn congressman about this investigation into the president? That's something that obviously because I'm on the intelligence committee that I can't discuss. But I can also say that it's something that at least in terms of our work. We've not gotten a conclusive answer to the committee that was run under devenue new nez was run in such a way that it was a take them at their word investigation. We would bring in witnesses ask them questions for a few hours. And basically there was no follow up. There was no there were no subpoenas issued for travel records or Bank records our phone records to verify anything that was told us or to go deeper and try to get the answer to one fundamental question. Which is what leverage if any does Putin or Russia have over Donald Trump, his family and his businesses. Let's talk about the bombshell report in the Washington Post about the extraordinary lights, President Trump has gone into in order to try to conceal the contents of his meetings with Putin including taking possession. Interpreters notes after that meeting with Putin and Hamburg, Germany, should lawmakers are subpoena the interpreter from that meeting another great and tough question. Ordinarily, I would say no because of professional ethics under the law, for example, a wife cannot be made to testify against a husband, a psychologist can't be made to testify against a patient and so forth. Ordinarily, you would think that you would wanna put interpreters in that in that batch of people. But this is not your ordinary case usually any American president would have not only an interpreter with them. But a whole range of other aides and assistance there would be a transcription of the meeting. What's remarkable is that Donald Trump insisted on going into this meeting with nobody else in the room except somebody that could obviously help he Putin communicate. So with that said, I think all options should be on the table because the American people deserve to know, what was said by their presence. And somebody who's the head of an adversarial nation who interfered with twenty sixteen presidential election, the president's nominee for attorney general Bill bar. He's been critical of the special counsel's investigation that times wrote a very very lengthy piece months ago about some criticisms that he had. But now he's taking pains to ease. Those concerns about how he plans to handle the pro ahead of this confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary committee tomorrow, do you think his prepared remarks effectively addressed some of the questions that democrat Democrats have raised about his nomination. You know, I trust that Senate Democrats will continue to ask him tough. But necessary questions for information that they need to know in order to make a vote or decision on whether to confirm it or not. Because he now says he believes the report that Robert Miller and his team comes out with should not only be made available to congress says it's vitally important. It'd be made available to the American public. I. Assume those are reassuring words to you. Yeah. They are wolf, but I also don't think that's much of a concession. This report is owed not to congress. Yes. But most of all to the American people, I see this as a report to the American people. All right, congressman Castro. Thanks so much for joining us. Thank you up next extrordinary turn of events as the president of the United States denies working for Russia are experts any by to weigh in on a series of scudding revelations and the president calls the Russia breath of big fat hoax, but his nominee for Torney.

President Trump again is denouncing the Russia investigation in the wake of this weekend's disclosures, including revelations FBI actually opened investigation to look at whether he secretly was working to benefit Russian interests, the president declared to reporters this morning, and I'm quoting him. Now, I never worked for Russia. Let's ask our political and legal experts about this and more, Gloria, we're learning more and more about the FBI's inquiry. It's investigations what are you hearing? Well, our colleagues Jeremy her Pamela Brown, and and Laura Jarrett have been reporting the con- the the on the transcripts of some folks from the FBI who testified before congress, and what they are saying is that that they were wondering, whether in fact, the president was completely innocent or whether he was actually executing the will of Russia, and this testimony comes from James Baker who was then the general count. Sel of the FBI. And so I think the questions they were raising are. In fact, the questions we were raising which is why did it seem, and why did it appear and still continues to appear that this is a president who cannot say a bad word about Vladimir Putin, and is this because he was in effect working for them. And and the president you have heard over the weekend and today say that's ridiculous. But it is ridiculous that we actually have to ask that very question. Every we would have to ask president United States that you working for the Russians. It's hard to believe, you know, Laura, you're part of the CNN team that's been going through some of the new information, including some transcripts of F, B, I and other Justice department officials they're closed door testimony to members of congress, Gloria said, you know, you have the testimony of James Baker who's the top lawyer at the FBI, it's pretty extrordinary for the man who's the general counsel saying we were worried about whether the president wanted to execute the will of rush. I mean his words are quite strong. But you also have another lawyer Lisa page for a lot about her. Text messages sort of disparaging the president. And she said they were actually considering opening the investigation before Komi got fire. They were looking at all the presents behaviors running, Michael Flynn and other issues. And so they were sort of puzzled by it. They're trying to figure out what's going on. But comas firing is the capstone at it creates a sense of urgency and remember there's still a great deal of mistrust at the time between the FBI and DO. Jay because rod Rosenstein, who has a Trump appointing wrote the memo that sort of is used as the pretext for commes firing initially as you have the tension there between rod Rosenstein and the man who becomes the deputy of FBI, Andrew McCabe. And so all of this is sort of playing out. But what we know is this all of intially gets transferred to Muller and the question is what is going to do it just on the the the tests. Remember at the time Donald Trump the day or the day after he fires James Komi. We learn was in the Oval Office talking. The Sergei laugh Laver off in three Kislyak two high ranking Russian officials saying there's a tremendous weight off me Lor mentioned the the attribution defying combing the Rosenstein memo. Yes, but Trump told Lester hope this whole Russia thing, and he was gonna fire before. So the thing glories point is ridiculous is the right word. But only in not in regards that that we're asking this question in the fact that we are to the point where this is a credible question that can and. Should be asked. You know? It's interesting a Saturday night. He was going doing an interview on Fox News, April any was asked about these allegations was the agent of Russia, and he started dodged any really didn't answer this morning. He was very forceful and he answered it directly. Why didn't he do that Saturday night? Well, you know, it's interesting. The president did not say something, you know, typically, he has these knee jerk reaction Sikkim in trouble this time. I guess I guess he's learning how to keep quiet. So what they did since that interview coalesced come together and figured out. What to say Kellyanne Conway was the first one to test out their new talking point this morning, talking about the reason why they have not given things out or talked about it. It's because they didn't want it leaked so now. Okay. So they didn't want leaks. So what are you going to do? Now. That's the question transparency is very important especially for a president who was a civilian who did do business with Russia prior to try head some fail. Bist business attempts with Russia and Russian officials. So this is very important. The question is, you know, wolf if he does release formation the question is can we believe it, can we believe it? And that's another sad thing in two thousand nineteen for US president to wonder about the credit. Ability of anything says or anything he releases the first time Chris that the president has defended his relationship Putin. Listen to this exchange twenty sixteen in exchange. He had with Hillary Clinton. Listen to this. Eighteen hundred nuclear warheads, and she's playing chicken look might from everything I see has no respect for this person. Well, that's because he'd rather have a puppet as president and day. No, it's pretty clear. Remember it? Well, look if in a vacuum. What April is talking about which is the president United States cutting. Greg Miller, my former colleague at the Washington Post, the president United Sates went out of his way to collect information related to his conversations with Ladimir Putin and keep them from even people within his administration in a vacuum. That would be crumpling given as corny as all of the things that we know seven people have pled guilty in the Muller. Pope Paul Manafort was convicted by jury of his peers one hundred ninety two criminal counts thirty six people or entities, charged given all of those connections, all of these people lying about the nature and breadth of their conversations with Russia. This strikes me as something that if he says he's innocent. I take him at his word. But he's this is the most guilty thing you could possibly do. He said in that interview with Janine. He says, but it was totally fine. I'm it's like meeting with anyone else. But it's not like meeting with anyone else. No one else. Use intelligence community has unanimously concluded sought to interfere in the twenty sixteen election to help Donald Trump and hurt Hillary Clinton everybody. Stick around. There's more news.

We're back with our political legal experts at Gloria the Washington Post is reporting that the president took the notes of his his interpreter who who was at that meeting that the president had with Putin and Hamburg, Germany 2017 Rex Tillerson, the secretary of state he attended that meeting as well. Why is the president though trying to prevent top US national security advisers, including his advisors on Russia from knowing what the Russians clearly already know all these US advisors have top secret security clearance. That's the question. We all want the answer to wolf I mean, Tillerson was in that meeting. And if I recall after the meeting he was not particularly forthcoming about what occurred during that meeting and during the Helsinki meetings, the president was alone. So you can imagine after this twenty-seven teen meeting that the president you have a president United States say to a translator here. Can I have your notes please from this meeting and telling the translator who apparently was asked about what occurred during that meeting afterwards telling the translator, you know, what don't say anything to anybody about what occurred? My question will is. Did he also say this direct? Tillerson did Rex Tillerson, then come out and give less less than a robust briefing about what occurred during the meeting because he was asked to stay quiet by the president. We don't we don't know the answer that question this time line that we put together this is. Involving the Trump Tower meeting when the New York Times learned about it. Also, the Trump Putin interactions around the same time morning of July, seventh New York time reaches out to the White House about the Trump Tower meeting midday. There's a meeting between Trump Putin and their top aides in the evening private conversation between Trump and Putin during dinner Trump later told the New York Times they discussed adoptions than on July eighth. President Trump dictates misleading statement about the Trump Tower beating on Air Force One on July eleventh emails show, Don Donald Trump, junior believed the Trump Tower meeting would include Clinton dirt and July eighteenth news reports real Trump Tower dinner meeting, it's there's a lot of suspicious activity going on here a lot of smoke and a lot of smoke wolf that centers around that meeting that we just keep coming back to as a as a, you know, a central part of it, which is that June two thousand sixteen meeting in Trump Tower, the thing that's mentioned there. But I think is really important. Remember with that statement, Donald Trump junior dictates the statement to Donald Trump dick statement to Donald Trump junior. And then the White House, Don, jR, totally opposite skate and do not tell the truth about how much of a role the president had in the statement. He did it is is statement in the words of Donald Trump junior. Why did he feel the need to A B so involved that he had to put words in his son's mouth and be not tell the truth? But let's say that they did not win asked about it. The insisted we may have seen it. He may have a word here there. That's not the case. It was his statement through his son. So there's just so much smoke. Is it possible the smoke doesn't mean that there's a fire? Sure, it's possible. But it seems unlikely given everything else we Laura do house. Investigators have the legal authority to subpoena, the interpreters notes do and I think the question is whether they want to pull the trigger on that. And I think there's been some hesitation about what kind of precedent that sets not for president. Trump. But for future presents down the line does this chill, you know, diplomatic conversations that you you want them to have sort of, you know, open rain to have recon sations without worrying that they're going to appear on the front page in the newspaper as much as we'd like to know, everything that they say, so I think that that's sort of the concern that you see some house lawmakers weighing. But Adam Schiff, the top democrat on the house intelligence committee was tweeting out yesterday that you know, they they voted this down last time around. But now Democrats controlled houses different ballgame very intriguing during the campaign back at twenty sixty seems like a long time ago, the Washington Post unearths of audio from a private meeting where the house majority leader. Kevin McCarthy was heard saying these words, quote, there's two people. I think Putin pays Rohrabacher dinner Roebuck or a member of Congress, Republican and Trump. It's very interesting because the Washington Post said the Paul Ryan, the speaker, then said this is off the record laughter. No leaks, blah, blah, blah. It's it's very intriguing. What McCarthy said then even though it may have been said at least in part as a joke. You know, sometimes there's truth in jokes. One thing that we did know before this president became president. He has international dealings. We know that he hit made attempts to have business with Russia. We didn't know the extent an and this also goes back to showing your taxes showing just being transparent in your financial dealing. So so all these questions won't be so big this president has to deal with issues of transparency. You've got this joke that could be have a little tinge of truth. Well, about a little tinge, let's say some truth in it. And this is about transparency at this point two years in and you go back to two thousand sixteen but it still plays twenty nineteen at this point the learning curve is over the naievety is over the American public needs to know, this is serious. This is about the United States of America. And the influences the continued and more serious influences that Russia may have on our governing of this. Nation the attorney general nominee Laura Bill bar. He goes before the Senate Judiciary committee tomorrow for his confirmation hearings. He's now saying what the I'm sure a lot of Democrats and others wanna hear that. He thinks the Miller report should be made available to congress and to the American public. Well, we have to remember Bill bars been through this rodeo before. Right. So if if confirmed this'll be his second stint as a general, and of course, I think it was pretty smart strategy to get out ahead of the question that we know every single democratic impossibly Republican Senator wants to get out there. What are you going to do to make sure Muller can complete his worm? What are you going to do about? This report. Are you going to let the public see it? He doesn't say we will let you know congress and the public actually see the reports he says, we'll make sure the results are made public to the extent that that's legally allowed. And it's within my discretion. I mean, there's a lot of talk around think tomorrow, you're going to see the senators try to really pin him down on this because they want to know, not only what are you? Gonna do about Muller. But I think they want to know what exactly precipitated that memo that he wrote that was so controversial explaining that. The president could not have obstructed Justice in the firing of James Komi, and they're going to want to know who did you send that to? How did this come about? What did you talk to about it? What did the president think when you raise this? And why why did you send it that's gonna call dish inning? There's more news. We're following. We're getting some new fallout right now from the bomb shell report on President Trump's efforts to keep from revealing what happened during his meetings with the Russian President, Vladimir Putin. Remember to create an ad like this one visit pure winning dot com slash CNN. Tonight. We're looking ahead to a high stakes vote. That's sure to have very dramatic impact on some of the United States is closest allies the British of Commons votes tomorrow on the terms of the United Kingdom pull out from the European Union. That's bringing CNN business editor at large. Richard quest. Richard. Is there a chance that Brexit may not happen? It's a possibility if as expected to resume loses the vote tomorrow, then they'll be a strong argument that somehow should all be put off until it be can be sorted out. But the prime minister today was very full threat in how last minute appeal Bellingham, she's likely not likely she's almost certainly going to lose this vote. But she still went anyway. Is on all sides of this house. Whatever you may have previously concluded over these next twenty four hours give this deal a second. Look. No, it is not perfect. And yes, it is a compromise. Not compromise will be accepted by Ps on our own side. And frankly, the issue is what happens tomorrow, such, but what happens next in one of those options, very much is the idea of delaying Brexit putting it off to the future and so forth. Now world the one comparison that everybody is making it the commentators talking about is the similarity at the moment between the United States and the United Kingdom who will both United tonight in seemingly paralyzed government. The US because of the shutdown and all that's going on the UK because of Brexit, and the irony here is not lost anyone. It was the pope Yalies vote that propelled both Brexit twenty sixteen. Donald Trump later in the US put it all together. And you have both sides of the Atlantic tonight. Looking extremely and Sutton stakes. Clearly are enormous. Richard quest.

After a weekend of opening a disturbing new reports about his behavior around Flammer, Putin and the Russians President Trump today made a point of telling reporters and I'm quoting him. Now, I never worked for Russia. Our Brian Todd has been looking over the president's record Brian. What have you found wolf we've gone back to well before the two thousand sixteen campaign and found what appears to be a pattern of deference on the part of President Trump a difference to Russia to flat, Amir Putin and a seeming lack of willingness to publicly go after Putin even when the evidence screams that he should. Tonight, the concerns over President Trump's deference to Ladimir Putin seemed to have reached new levels following new reporting from the New York Times and CNN that after Trump's firing of James Komi, the FBI investigated why the president was acting in ways that seemed to always benefit Russia. This is the first time in American history. You've ever had an American president who is being seriously investigated by law enforcement, given the possibility that he may not be allowed to this country that he may have actually sold out this country. Well, there has been no evidence released publicly showing the president is under Russia's influence. Analysts say Trump has shown a pattern of deference to Russia that is both unusual and heart to explain throughout the campaign. Trump denied having financial ties to Russia. I have no dealings with Russia. I have no deals in Russia. But in two thousand eight his son Donald junior said Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross section of the Trump organization's assets. And his former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to congress about Trump pursuing a deal to build a tower in Moscow while he was running for office, something the president later downplayed, but it's not just business with Russia, Trump openly encouraged Russia to interfere in the two thousand sixteen election Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the thirty thousand emails that are missing and then disparaged his own intelligence agencies over there. Ting's that Russia did in fact interfere. He even parodied Putin's denials of that. I believe that he feels that he and Russia did not meddle in the election at their summit in Helsinki left summer. Trump almost seemed to give Putin's talking points on election meddling for him. He just said it's not Russia. I will say this. I don't see any reason why it would be there have been other alarming episodes just after firing James Comey in two thousand seventeen in an Oval Office meeting with the Russian Foreign Minister and Russian ambassador. Trump reportedly told the Russians he got rid of the FBI director because Comey was a quote nutjob, and because it eased great pressure apparently from the investigation at he reportedly shared highly classified information about a joint counterterrorism operation with Israel, something the president said he had the right to do. The also said he didn't divulge its origin. And the Washington Post now reports Trump has gone to great lengths to keep the specifics of his conversations with the Russian president under wraps, and that there are no detailed records of his five meetings with Putin. Trump denies hiding anything, but experts are warning tonight. This overall pattern signals that Putin a former KGB Colonel now in charge of the Kremlin could have the upper hand in the relationship and may continue to use Trump's deference toward him to his own advantage doing things like stepping up his aggression in Ukraine and in Syria, and he feels pretty safe from American pushback if you look at what Russian TV says, they basically play around with Trump. They make fun of him as being a Russian lackey and analysts are warning tonight. The President Trump's patterns with Putin are sending signals to America's other rivals and two dictators around the world they say his deference to Putin is almost an in. Tation to those rivals to try their hand at interfering with America's elections or try other forms of sabotage. We'll our Brian thanks very much. Brian Todd reporting coming up the president of the United States declares quoting him. Now says he never worked for Russia but stunning new account. So the FBI opened a formal inquiry to determine if President Trump was secretly following directions from the Kremlin, and then he took great pains to high details of his private talks with let.

Could new, unsealed documents push Congress to impeach Trump?

"So the president now only knew about the payments he knew and help to hide the payments in the reimbursements to you we discussed everything had to go through Mr Trump and had to be approved by Mr Trump and now you're going to prison and he said and I'm going to prison yes Ma'am to those who support the president and his red and his rhetoric as I once did I pray the country doesn't make the same mistakes that I have made what pay the heavy price that my family and I are paying good morning and welcome to am joy well. We've got a lot to get to today including the latest on Donald Trump's reelection strategy of stoking white resentment international reaction to his racist attacks on four congresswoman of color and the latest just reporting on how his team tried to bail him out amid the growing fallout but I you haven't seen much of the guy that you just heard from Michael Cohen lately because well he's in prison but back in February Donald Trump's longtime attorney a. and fix or gave that explosive testimony before Congress mincing no words calling trump a con man a racist and a cheat and pulling back the curtain on trump world to reveal a vast operation of lies and crimes including including then then candidate trump directing hush money plan during the two thousand sixteen election for stormy Daniels a pornographic film actress who alleged affair with trump this week the department of Justice closed its investigation involving all the trump and these payments with federal judge in Manhattan ordering the release of some investigative documents and those documents have offered new details of trump's involvement in the case the most explosive details offer more confirmation that trump knew about the hush money payments and was personally involved something he has actively denied the documents detail that trump was in close communication with Cohen while the illegal money scheme was being arranged they he also revealed that hope Hicks trump loyalist and his former communications aide had a more substantial role in bringing in buying stormy Daniels silence taking part in a flurry of calls in the days leading up to the payments to Daniels with Cohen Trump stormies stormies attorney and to American media executives trump's involvement is no longer in question as these newly unsealed documents show for the very first time but so far he has faced no real consequences quences Michael Cohen the man who covered up the crime is now in federal prison for breaking campaign finance laws on Thursday. He reiterated from prison quote. I and members of the trump organization were directed by Mr Trump to handle the stormy daniels matter including making the hush money payment the other major characters hope Hicks who is walking around free despite these new court documents suggesting that she lied to Congress Congress about the cover up while the third and Most Important Unindicted Co conspirator in this crime is sitting in the White House or today. Maybe at a golf course while you are paying the bill and let's be clear Donald Trump's current the primary address being sixteen hundred Pennsylvania Avenue is probably the only reason that he's not facing indictment joining me now is Timothy O'Brien of Bloomberg Opinion Maya Wiley Senior Vice President for social justice at the new school and Jill wine banks former Assistant Watergate special prosecutor and I'm going to start with you because if somebody told someone else to rob a bank it's go and get me a thousand dollars from the bank and the person robbed the bank and that person was arrested in jail typically the person who ordered the crime or asked them to do it. Would they not be indicted so is donald trump literally only free of being indicted with Michael Cohen because he's president. Yes is a simple answer. A conspiracy makes everybody. That's part of the conspiracy responsible for whatever crime is committed. If you rob a bank with someone who has a gun and that person kill someone you're responsible for the murder justice much as for the robbery and the only reason that a person wouldn't be indicted in those circumstances is if the office of Legal Counsel at the Department of Justice said you cannot indict and this is just so much like Watergate Watergate because it's not fair when the main actors in an event are free like the president but the people who carried out his policies and orders and did the crimes go the jail that isn't fair the American people should be upset about the fact that the president gets away with doing things and Michael Cohen goes to jail in the same way that Haldeman and Ehrlichman and John Mitchell the attorney general went to jail in Watergate and stay with you for a moment because it was during Watergate it was it was after Watergate this I issue I came up about whether or not the president and <hes> could himself face indictment in nineteen seventy-three just a quick thing here from Reuters in nineteen seventy three in the midst of the Watergate scandal engulfing President Richard Nixon the Justice Department's Office of Legal Council adopted in an internal memo that position that a sitting president canopy indicted the department reaffirmed the policy in two in a two thousand memo saying court decisions in the intervening years had not I changed its conclusion that a sitting president is constitutionally immune from indictment and criminal prosecution. The nineteen seventy-three in two thousand memos are binding on Justice Department employees including Muller according to many legal experts. Do you agree with that Yeah Joe Weider Bang fit those memos even though they are not laws are binding on the Department of Justice well. Yes I agree. They are binding on the Department of Justice but I think they are only binding so long as no one is willing to challenge them and this willing to change them because I believe they are legally and constitutionally invalid. They are not correct. I didn't think they were correct. In nineteen seventy-three I argued that the President Nixon should be indicted for his clear her involvement in the Watergate case and I argued that twice once while he was sitting president and then after he was pardoned I argued again that he should be indited. We failed to persuade Leandra Warsi to take that action but we were at least able to name him. An Unindicted Co conspirator and the evidence against him is what led to his forced resignation so at least there was some consequences to Richard Nixon for his crimes times. I hope that there will be but in this era of the multiplication of media and the fake news at Fox where people do not believe what is written in plain paper. If you look at the mall report it says we did not not exonerate the president and yet we are behind in terms of the the people who watch Fox News actually believe that he was exonerated they believe the narrative created by the president and bar and I think what people don't understand is that the difference here between civil and and legal consequences for a sitting president because I'm old enough to remember that Bill Clinton was allowed to be sued civilly while he it was president and it's always the argument for not indicting president is that it would interfere with his duties as President President Clinton was still acting as president and was still still actively doing that while he was being sued <hes> and and and just to be very quick in one thousand nine hundred seventy supreme court ruled nine to zero and rejected the Clinton administration's argument to put off the sexual harassment lawsuit against him by Paula Jones ruling for the first time that a sitting president can be sued for actions outside the scope culpa this official duties Supreme Court today decisively rejected President Clinton's request to delay proceedings in a sexual harassment suit brought by a former Arkansas state employee Paula Jones and that was in nineteen ninety-seven so can you explain this disconnect as to why a president could be allowed to be sued especially to like this which brought out all sorts of sort of gross personal details about his life made a very serious accusation one that now has been made also against the current president. So why can you eat a president be sued but not indicted well not that I want to be sitting in the position of defending the office of Legal Counsel memo because I'm with Jill on this one but I think there is a difference that we should acknowledge which is the consequences of losing a civil case are very very different from the consequences of being indicted <hes> and ended up in prison. If you're sitting president so in one case you pay money in another case <hes> you're literally potentially ending up in in prison and so you know essentially if you look at what the argument is that the constitution creates the power in Congress to determine whether or not a sitting president duly elected should be removed from office and that it shouldn't be in the hands of prosecutors on the theory that you could potentially politicize an office. It's supposed to be politically neutral if say some prosecutors just want to go after the president because they don't like the president and so I'm not that's that's an oversimplification of what the legal arguments are but but it is the difference in consequence and the fact that there is a mechanism in the constitution. I think part of what's so troubling for us today is we are not seeing that constitutional additional mechanism working and I think that's part of the tension that we're confronting and that's that's frankly a new one for us as we saw with Nixon at least we had even Republicans members of his own party willing take up the inquiry willing to look at whether or not there were serious allegations that required consideration of removing him from office. Let's play <hes>. This is <hes> Anderson Cooper who actually had an interview with Jim Komi who was a former F._B._i.. Director who was fired by Donald Trump and he's talking about the conclusion that came out in the mother report and the report is separate from this because this is talking about the unindicted co-conspirator potential title of Donald Trump there but here's Mitchell his call me talking to Anderson Cooper tickets so in your opinion there was corrupt and ten at least in several of those episodes of looks that way from the reports <hes> factual recitation if there now I think it's up to eight hundred former federal prosecutors have worked in both Republican and Democratic administrations who've signed a statement saying the Muller's findings would have produced obstruction charges against president trump if he weren't president. Do you agree yeah. I uh no doubt no doubt so tim if we have you know Don Donald Trump's former lawyer sitting in prison for a crime that he says that he did at Donald Trump's behalf so that's one thing you have donald trump's former former aide whole picks apparently he's also facing consequences who may have lied to Congress but there's no consequences for her and then you have the former F._B._I.. Director saying that he believed there was corrupt intent and potential obstruction of justice committed by this present. That's multiple things that a regular personal it'd be indicted for but there is now also not an opportunity or not a possibility of him either being impeached which is the only other option so you can't be indicted and he can't be impeached or what we looking at is that Donald Trump is going to get away with all of this. Well you know he can be impeached. I don't think that that's been they will come to the house. Leadership does not want to compel the House to move in that direction but I think that that the very question can he be indicted lead. Did you ask about impeachment and if you say no to both I think what you're then saying the president exists above the rule of law and I don't think that's what the framers of the Constitution intended they otherwise they wouldn't have put in a provision for impeachment impeachment exists exists as a cure to the reality that he may not get indicted through the regular judicial process and I think what we're confronted with is very question. The examples you gave also left out Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort Paul Manafort was his campaign manager. Michael Flynn was as national security adviser. You had people with real power and influence who are paying the costs of breaking the law because it was clear as day that they did. I don't think anyone including the eight hundred prosecutors who've read them all the report and watch how William Bar acted around it and read what what Robert Muller's conclusions are have very little doubt that the president obstructed justice there is no doubt in my mind having read that report twice now that the president obstructed justice us and so what do we do as a country and what do we do around that reality if we're not going to indict him we have to take very seriously the reality of impeachment and if we don't then the at the end of the day what we're saying is where we're creating a president of the United States to exist above the law and I think that's a bad result yeah and that's a frightening possibility okay. All of these guests are going to be right back so please stay right there and coming up Lordy. It's finally multi next hi. It's is Katy Tur want to keep up with M._S._N._B._C..

Two six six eight six six to subscribe. Under long standing department policy a president president cannot be charged with a federal crime while he is in office that is unconstitutional even if the charges kept under seal and hidden from Republic View that too is prohibited special counsel's Office is part of the Department of Justice and by regulation it was bound by that department policy charging the president with a crime and was therefore not an option we could consider nearly two months after Robert Muller signed off as special counsel. He is set to return to Capitol Hill on Wednesday for a set of back to back public hearings before the House Judiciary for an intelligence committees. The New York Times has framing this as a make or break moment for Democrats but at this point house until Chairman Adam Schiff says that he isn't quite sure what to expect. Here's what he told my colleague Kristen Welker yesterday. I am very realistic in my expectations. He is clearly deeply. Reluctant to testify he has made it clear that he doesn't want to go beyond the report and I wanNA make it clear. That is a choice that <unk> Bob Mueller is making that is not required by law that is not required by regulation. We will be doing our hearing after the Judiciary Committee so we will get some sense of how worthwhile it is to fight with him over areas outside the report back with Timothy O'Brien my wiley and Jill wine banks and Tim is you just look at this. <hes> sort of outside of the process looking in is this entire process like a month and a half too late because you know for the most part art people have formed their opinions on what they think is in the Muller report because although it is now a New York Times bestseller most people haven't read it so most people just heard about it and heard the spin from William Bar and Republicans and Fox News or they've heard or donald trump or they've heard various Democrats or people like on these shows talking about it so people already have an opinion and it's not likely it doesn't seem that Muller is the type of guy who's going to come out there and and try to change anything he's just going to repeat. What's in the report so AH innocent? What do you make the fact that this much time later now Democrats are doing this kind of a hearing well? I do think the Democrats have been too slow off the mark throughout this whole process I think Bill Barr who has operated very much. It's like a political operative and IT media strategists around this rather than the nation's top law enforcement official. I think recognized early on that. It was important to craft a message about what the Mullahs report said and to get ahead of that in terms of the public conversation and he was very very effective at that he dissemble about what the report said and he offered a very soft take on what it presented for the president and I don't think the Democrats or members of the legal community ever really caught up with bar more on that I think I think people understand now. The Bar was a bad actor in this but for most Americans wondering about how they should think about this. I do think some of this is settled. I don't think most people have read them Mullah report nor do I think they will and I think think about all of the momentum that went in prior to the Cavanaugh hearings or Michael cones hearings people watch both those things with great attention attention and emotional attachment. They saw those important moments. I think some of that momentum has gone to having said all of that so I don't think you can discount how powerful television is as a theater and I think this could be very powerful learning moment for most Americans if this plays out in a way in which they realize how dramatic dramatic and damning this report is the most I think damning report that's ever been presented for a sitting president and I think that that's been loss on the public and I think strategically it will really hinge on how wise judiciary and Intel are in Stage Managing Robert Muller's appearance yeah so let's talk about the content could actually be my gym called me has given his thoughts on on what Phnom should be asked of Michael Cohen. Just give you a few of them did did you. He would like to see Mr Muller. Ask did you reach a judgment as to what the President committed obstruction of justice crimes. Did you find substantial evidence that the president had committed obstruction of justice crimes for example. Did you find that the president directed the White House counsel to call the Acting Attorney General and tell him the special counsel must be removed. Did you find the president later directed the White House counsel to say that he had not been ordered to have the special counsel moved and did you find the president wanted the White House counsel to write a false memo saying he had been ordered to have special counselor moved in. Did you find the White House counsel refused to do that because it was not true. What do you want them to do is ask yes or no kind of questions? Did you find that this person potentially committed this crime which seems like it would be smart because that's something Democrats could potentially be a useful. Do you think that's the way the Democrats should yes or no questions with with I I would absolutely go that way. We know that by the book Bob is going to stick to his report and what that me and the what the House Judiciary Committee Committee has done at least if if if the news reporting is accurate terms of which parts of the obstruction remember their ten areas of obstruction they've highlighted five that they're going to focus on. They picked the right five because those five like mcgann like Corey Lewandowski. Those are the examples where in the report Robert Muller said Obstructive Act. He said a connection to a preceding Donald Trump knew there was a grand jury proceeding when he was aware of it he was talking about he was concerned about it and thirdly that there was substantial he literally uses this language. There was substantial evidence of corrupt intent. Essentially which is those are the three elements of the crime so what Democrats can do is literally say on page forty seven you found in your report obstructive act trump knew there was a proceeding and there was substantial santeuil evidence. Is that correct because then he's going to answer. Factually I think the other thing Neil Kochav made very clear and goes back to Tim's point is they should ask very clear broad questions about bars framing the report meaning. You did not find that there was no collusion you found significant interference with your ability to investigate didn't you so you know they can unravel that. Some of the damage that William Bar did in painting the report inaccurately yeah and we know that the Republican Strategy Per Matt Gaetz who has already said that they want to try to go into bias they WANNA try to sort of beat up on <hes> on <hes> on Muller and try to allege that there was some sort of bias in the investigation. You are obviously a student of what it looks like when this kind of a hearing. This isn't quite a Watergate hearings that level but it's it's a public hearing at which the principal investigator is sitting in this in in the hot seat if Republicans go after him. It was just not what happened during the Watergate hearings. Is there a possibility that this could be more useful because it will force muller to defend himself so far muller or has not shown any instinct to defend himself. I keep hoping that he will <hes> but the accusations against him from the Republicans have been so absurd that maybe he feels it isn't necessary. He's been cleared by everybody who has officially looked at his supposed bias or his hiring of Democrats. Prosecutors are not Democrats or Republicans. They are people who are charged with finding the truth the facts ax and that's what Robert Muller and his team did I think that both what Tim and my is absolutely correct. The questions have to be framed as this is what you said on page so and so is that correct act you have to stick to what's there and he will do that and it can be a smoking gun. Yeah it'll be interesting but really quick before we go. We are out of time but very quick answer tim do you don't claims he's not going to watch the Gene Muller testimony and that it's all over already do believe he's not GonNa Watch it. I think he was going to be very very enwrapped. In all of this. I think this is this is what he lives for. This is actually his own that he he lives in day to day. I don't think I'm GonNa miss this any of this. He's getting he's in a live tweeted probably and really quick the banks. What's your pin? It's a Muller Pin Shows Muller against a background of the flag all right well. We will all be watching. Thank you very much. Timothy O'Brien my widely jill wine banks. y'All very much coming Yep. I'll explain how trump's attack on people of color could be a national security threat that is next sort of language go back tweet came from you. Don't belong is sort of language which I've heard in my lifetime from racist and fascist never from a mainstream politician will hey you have the president of the USA using that same sort of language the outrage over Donald Trump's racist tweets and attacks on four freshman house else Democrats of color isn't isolated to the United States. The attacks provoked revulsion from many of our allies around the globe trump's comments were even condemned by Boris Johnson. The conservative politician poised to become Britain's new prime minister who trump apple's just secretly flattering last week. If you're the leader great multiracial multicultural society you simply cannot use that kind of language about sending the people that win that decades and decades ago thank heavens for that so it's totally unacceptable joining me now is Paul rakoff host of the podcast angry Americans great great to talk with you Paul and it goes around the world. I mean just to stay in Britain for a moment. The outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May who just treated trump to a state visit enforced the royal family to wine and dine him. She put a statement out saying the prime minister's view is that the language used to refer to these women was completely unacceptable from her spokesman. You had the British a British politician and David Lamb as a donald trump telling four ethnic minority American car go back where they originally came from nineteen one thousand nine hundred eighty s racism straight from the White House any British politician fit to serve as P._M.. Would condemn which Boris Johnson did it goes on and on and on for bear so when our closest allies condemning the American president. Where does that leave us it leaves us in in very deep waters it precarious times the president's tweets are racist? The president is racist. The policies are racist and the command climate he has created is racist and that's ripping our country apart more than half the country views him as racist and our children are watching. All Americans are watching the military is watching but the world is watching our allies are watching and they are now looking to us to correct this to check him. This is more than a tipping point. This is a defining moment. This is a gut check time for America to find find out who has integrity and who doesn't in the media in politics. WHO's going to call it what it is and who's going to recognize our enemies are also watching a divide America's a weakened America? The North Koreans are going to push us. The Iranians are going to push us. They've now taken a British tanker even this morning Southern Command is tweeting about Venezuelan jet and pushing the stakes there so the stakes couldn't possibly be higher and we're in very very deep waters and I think that's a really important point. Let me stay with you on that for just a moment because the reality is that post World War due to the U._S.. Really organized those are the last man standing literally last man standing after it was devastated after World War Two and then we had this primary rival we thought then allied with the then Soviet Union but are you know what the U._S. has used to say. No Oh you need to stick with us and stay on our side of what was the Cold War was these values that we weren't always living to blunt we weren't living at all when it came to raise but that we said them right and so when you have an American president who's coddling dictators cuddling up to people like Kim Jong own hanging a photo of Kim Jong Hoon in the White House right and then at the same time he is stoking these racist elements within our within our country the same way that the leader of Poland is the leader of of other countries are that we consider to be you know sort you've falling toward a fascist element. What does that do to the organization up the world? What does that do to national security for us and rips it apart? I mean these stabilizing force for for our country but for the entire world we're looked to to be a pillar of stability of strength of integrity and our commander in chief is a racist and most of the world sees it so I think it really behooves the rest of us to try to figure out as we say in the military how to adapt improvise overcome. How are we going to work around Donald Trump? How are we going to put other faces forward award and especially frankly white people white people need to speak up and call it racist and this is gut check time for all Americans but especially for the National Security Community for retired generals for diplomats for other people who can show a contrast to donald trump? You're doing it on your show. We do it here on M._S._N._B._C. but it's gotta go a lot broader than that to show the world that all Americans are not racist yeah and you know it's interesting because Germany which obviously experienced firsthand what it meant to have an extremist extremist government that did you know the worst of the worst a year ago and this is circulating again on twitter and it's interesting that it certainly again stern which is the most popular magazine in Germany literally depicted Donald Trump as Nazi on its cover. That was a year ago. That's circulating. Circulating again today following his attack on these women angle Merckel who now in many ways is the leader of the free world for a lot of people because she's standing the strongest for multi-ethnic democracy in Germany fighting against far-right forces she came out and was asked to you personally feel solidarity with the women men who were attacked and here's what she said Zinzi because unfort- tunes easy presently salita averaged a kitten followed cheating easily dollars and I don't have time to read them all but you've got the leaders of Canada attacking denouncing Donald Trump Scotland attack denouncing donald trump the leader of New Zealand who just had a horrendous anti-muslim attack in her country coming out and condemning Donald Trump but when Germany when the leader of Germany is as well and when a German newspapers depicting the American President as a Nazi. Oh my God I just get your company upside down world and Boris Johnson Right Boards John Now checking trump. That's how far it's gone. Look my my podcast focuses a lot on independence and people from the National Security and defense community veterans. I think we as a community are extremely concerned here because we understand how this endangers every single platoon every single squad in the world that stands on indefens- on behalf of America that goes from border security all the way to the Middle East so the stakes couldn't possibly be higher and that's why trump's racism racism in dangerous. All Americans endangers the entire world yeah absolutely and I'm old enough to remember when Ronald Reagan being vilified around the world met him being depicted as a cowboy okay as a cowboy that was that that's how you know and this is how far we take this point yeah yeah. It's pretty pretty far down Paul Rakoff always bits talk to you. Thank you very much appreciate. Thank you coming up. I'll tell you about the latest on the man-made crisis in Puerto Rico. That's next thousands of protesters arrived here. cobblestone streets wipeout authorities acted more police around the governor's mansion I should the governor resigned the other demonstrations in Miami D._C.. And New York Hamilton Creator Lin-manuel Miranda's sounded all supported that people this week protesters flooded the streets of San Juan Puerto Rico to demand the resignation of Governor Ricardo or CEO after nearly nine hundred pages of his private text messages were leaked in them he and his eleven of his closest aides and cabinet members use defensive homophobic and misogynistic language and at one point even joked the victims of Hurricane Maria doing now is Victoria Leandra multimedia producer for vice news so just give us a bit of the background for those who have not been following the story yes so the protests have been going on for about a week now. It all started because of the leak Chad but the protests are not about it. The protests are this is something that has been bottling up for Puerto Ricans for a long time now. It's about the corruption going on the island. It's about the failed response to Hurricane Maria. It's about the years of mismanagement and the island has had to its own people so now it's a turning point from Puerto Ricans and that's what they're going out on the streets and so just to give both they're they're. They're calling it. Ricky leaks is nicknamed for it but there were points at which according to the reporting the governor attacked the San Juan Mayor Carmen you lean crews exchanged conversations nations with the chief fiscal officer of Puerto Rico at the time and the and the persons on the Federal Board responsible for managing the island's finances and they tweaked. They joked about salivating to shoot her and he the governor said You'd be doing me a grand favor favor. They joked about Ricky Martin and made fun of him making fun of him and saying that likening his sexual orientation to patriarchal oppression because he didn't think women measured up just all sorts of crazy things but also talking talking about the financial situation and having some colorful things to say toward the the board that governs the finances of the island so is this at the end about the the the the rivalry between Carmen Julian cruise and the governor. Is it about fight over the finances what what what you're saying. It's not really just about the the text messages exactly the text messages just prove something that has been going on in the island for many years and that is that had the political class in the island has thing corrupt so this messages are approved of that now. That's the last straw that Puerto Ricans need to go out and actually fight against this political class last because Carmen Julene Carmen's union comment on the jobs doing comment is only it's only homophobic. It's misogynistic. It's sexist but it's corruption that it's the thing that is the main problem in the island of now right and just really quickly prominent politicians that are now calling for CEOS resignation. Jet Representative Jennifer Gones Cologne. Who's our resident commissioner of Puerto Rico who serves as a non voting member of the House of Representatives says it's time to stabilize Puerto Rico to continue its reconstruction Senator Elizabeth Warren as the people spoken loud and clear concrete resigned Hulan Castro has said he he's not affecting these to resign? Even Senator Rick Scott the former right wing Republican governor of Florida. WHO's now a senator to the needs new leadership ricky? Martin issued a statement saying that this chat also contains vulgar references to him and he's sorry. Did he ever response here. Sorry I'm getting this wrong but he does not have have a comment on it. He was just one of the people who attacked is the governor is planning to resign. Is there any instant. Is there any chance that he's going to resign from your reporting governor will say you will need to resign. He has no one left on his own party and in the in the party that supports him he doesn't even have many of the support of the Republicans and Democrats here in the U._S.. Like he has claim that he has a very little amount of people who actually in the islands still support him actually let this past week. They communicated a march for his stay in power when no one attended so ooh just to fort where we are at a time. I just want to let people know that he has issued a statement. He's spotted on Tuesday that he was not proud of what he did but he is not going to resign. <hes> thank you very much. We're out of time but Victoria Leandra. Thank you so much really appreciate you being here. Thank you for having me. Thank you very much more drafted to break. Hey very special thank you to everyone who was bought my brand new book the man who sold America trump and the unraveling of the American story which is now in its third week on New York Times Bestseller List who you can get your copy wherever books are sold and if you already have a copy and want to get it signed. I'll be at politics and prose this Tuesday at seven PM. Just check my social media accounts for more details and on other on this and other book events more Andrew after the break once you start telling American citizens to quote go back to your own countries. This tells you that this President's policies are not about immigration. It's about ethnicity and racist is on morning and welcome back to A._M.. Joel Bronx Congresswoman Alexandrio Cossio Cortez laid it all out on Saturday as new reporting from the Washington Post reveals their firestorm in the cleanup operation that hit the White House following Donald All trumps racist tirade when we go today according to the post trump's top aides didn't think that he fully understood what he had done since last Sunday when he fired off a trio of racist tweets before a trip to his golf course after days of damage control control aides reportedly believed that the worst behind them until Wednesday when trump leaned back stuck his chin in the air and just took it all in while his supporters erupted into racist chance of send her back in response to trump's attacks on Somali born American citizen citizen and Congresswoman Ilan Omar The post reports that Republican leaders including Vice President Mike Pence Republican House leader Kevin McCarthy and Congresswoman Liz Cheney huddled together at his house the next day to figure out how to deal with the danger aged of the chant catching on but with trump doubling tripling quadrupling down on attacking the congresswoman even this morning and with this poll numbers among Republicans going up since his racist tweets it look like that ship has sailed joining me now is tiffany cross of the see Andrew Feinberg of breakfast media Jason Johnson of the Root Dot Com Republican strategists Kate Dawson and M._S._N._B._C. media analyst Eric Deg and Tiffany a little bit more from that post story trump defended himself when he was supposedly confronted by his aides he'd been watching Fox and friends after waking up he wanted to elevate the congresswoman as he had previously discussed with AIDS. The president said the he thought that he was injecting himself into Democratic Party politics in a good way so he thought that he did a great job and wanted to keep doing it and some of the AIDS it supposedly sat down with him thinking Liz Cheney went out and her damage control was to start yelling about Democrats being baby killer so it's not anybody knew what to do but they didn't do anything right right and this is nothing new I mean this is something I think when we all this attention on trump and his rhetoric look obviously I think to ask the question I still see time and again members. Come on television and hostal ask so do you think the comments the president's comments are racist. We can stop that question has been asking right answer. We can stop wasting. Everybody's time asking that we can stop wasting time pretending this week. Walk back means anything other than a failed attempt at controlling whatever damage they did with their their base in Republican Party if any was done but this did not begin with trump's presidency. This is the president the Republican Party created for the past few decades long before trump came in office. You had white supremacists roaming the halls of Congress. This is even the first time a white supremacist has occupied the White House so we have to start identifying these things and demanding that the media call it what it is call a thing a thing. I remember when this happened and I didn't even flinch when it happened but you wake up and you see the breaking news banner trump said something racist Oh it wasn't racially charged today or comments that some people bound to be racist. We're finally ready to call thing. Let's do that and I think if if I may say if we had newsrooms that were more representative of the country with more people of color in them than I think we would have a lot more honest discourse about identifying these things as the racist comments and white supremacists compensate and thinking about it is that right I think because people in the media have have been so reluctant to really go straight on at things like racism it does kind of give Republicans a cover to say no. It's this is another thing thing is racially charged bad language because there is a cover that they're under but it also does seem that there is a scramble that Republicans haven't figured out when they when they know they clearly know that this was bad. This looks really bad and but they don't really know how to you. Don't have to do about it. I want to show a confrontation between yourself Andrew and and Kellyanne Conway who at this point they sort of defacto the White House spokeswoman. She's the person going out to the press and trying to defend him and she she clearly didn't know what to do here with your interaction with her. The president was not telling these these four congresswoman to church. They're supposed to countries of origin to which countries was he referred what you're missing. You know because as you question my ancestors are from Ireland in Italy drove into the question it is you're asking about he said originally you said originally from what did as you just give us your reaction to that. I mean my my reaction at the time I'm used to her being inappropriate with me and responding to legitimate questions with often insulting questions but <hes> that one as I've said before was owed a weirder than normal and I don't think that she really knew how to answer the question so her responses to deflect but this time it didn't go so well yeah clearly. It didn't didn't let me read another piece Washington Post story for you and the trombone doubles down its advisors new talking points for trump and handed him reams of opposition research. He doesn't read lots of stuff but okay they wanted to read opposition circle the Fort Congresswoman pivot to patriotism they said focus on their ideas and behavior not identity some would still see a racist agenda the argument went but at least it would not be so explicit so it's clear that they understood that Donald Trump had been blatantly only racist towards these women and they want him to backpedal into attacking their policies but isn't the fact that since his he wrote it down. It's on his twitter feed. He said the country's you came from. He didn't say anything about the green new deal or Medicare for all backpedaling into those things it just it was too late right well. It's sort of like listen. The first chapter of your book joy I read it and enjoyed it and finish. This weekend was no matter what you hand Donald. Trump is an operative motive. He's going to do what he thinks he needs to do. He did it with his opening. Speech had a speech in his pocket. You address it in your book. It's true and Donald Trump has instincts that certainly have probably fared him well electorally but not. The folks around him so Donald Trump's not donald trump's not one that's workable or one that is manageable as far as his rhetoric especially as twitter feed so what staff says and what he does is two different things donald trump so far you're inside the base has an ignore ability factor that people will look past what he says. Pick out what they like an accentuate that that's what I've seen in this instant so far right and do you worry that the you know I've likened it to just because that's in my head really from a book and thank you for the compliment on it that it is similar to the way that you saw the nationalist party. They called the National Party in South Africa kind of morph right that it'd be formed around white identity and just took it from there. Do you worry that the image of the Republican Party has a poll out. We don't have it this morning but our at my predecessor David Gura talked about it that among younger people the Republican Party's name is mud at this point they just they can't get anywhere because they are being the your party is is becoming identified with this kind of racism and nationalism and white nationalism and isn't that a problem I'm not I don't fully agree with that. I do agree that the tone is what bothers us that elect elect people to office. I come from the electoral place where we put people in office. We recruit Tim Scott's Nikki Haley's we've tried to diversifier party and the tone matters to me as far as the young folks who I think the economy matters to him. Some things things that Donald trump should be talking about that he's not talking about. This is all purely political. This is about reelection for Donald Trump. This is about Democratic Party versus the Republican Party. I took a big note from what happened at the Democrat Democratic Congressional meetings that they had for the congressman and and for the governors and the Democrat governors are the ones that I read that concerns both ways that Donald Trump gave them huge wins two years ago and now with this presidential primary up and the rhetoric the twenty you're using now. I never agree with Terry McAuliffe before but I agree with him now. The Democratic Party is not talking about what matters to the voters voters in these young voters at the same time. Republicans are not taking advantage of a primary that is going on this getting a lot of coverage that is I would contend not in mainstream electoral politics right now. Well let me let me go to today's on this because so there's the politics of it which Keeton obviously knows their welcome party politics very well and then there's just the optics of it and I just want to get your this because you're out in the world talking to voters Jason. It feels to me like over the past week we I have not talked at all about whatever it is. These young women are for in terms of policy that whatever policy Republicans thought that they were going to benefit from saying they can demonize the green new deal through them. They can demonize Medicare for all through them. That's gone the Democratic Party is now all united the German chancellor is united with them and the leader of Canada and on and on and on in just saying their bodies who they are is Donald Trump attack like that's what they are now. They are now elevated in stature. They now are really beneficial to to the party in a way as far as particularly with younger voters people who might not have been that excited by this presidential race there now really useful with younger voters now young people know who they are if they didn't already and even on the other side of it let me Omarosa has I said this is coming from Donald Trump's own friend that he hired that he made star. This is what she said on our air when she was on yesterday on Saturday night politics take a listen at those rallies these things or choreographed there are section leaders who helped to start those chance and so it was intentional and we know that they did it so that they could start these chance so he tested okay Omarosa but she's saying she is now going up as a former White House okay and say Nope Nope they did strategy. Zone friend is saying that former friend get your thoughts Jason well so a couple of things one OMAROSA has no the Donald Trump was a racist for years. She told me that during the debates I say that now that's not that's that's not new. That's not a surprise but but I think joy really dangerous issue here is that we always want to make sure that any discussion of how racism these being used politically what we understand that the consequences are actually life and death. I vehemently disagree with what Keeton talking about here that this is all political. Maybe political for you. It's life and death for these women. It's life and death for people at the border. It's life and death for black and Brown and yes heather higher white people in America when you have a president who says that my philosophy a fee for staying in power is to demonize eight imply and suggest and encourage violence against people who don't look like me. That's the problem and everybody knows that he's doing it and the only difference is that some people say that it's politically convenient and some people argue you about tone. I want to live in American. I encourage every single person to have this conversation. This is not a strategic issue. It is a national security issue. It is a moral issue. It is an ethical issue into the degree that we allow trump to make this about policy when the reality is we know he just hates for Brown. Women these sort of Modern Day lynchings these Republicans would have been mad about these four women regardless of what they said and did we have to understand that this is not strategic. It's moral. It has to be looked at that way. You haven't come back before I go onto the Pentagon. I'm going to come back to you on this kate and because right so so there there is these as you said it's not strategy for the Washington Post Donald Trump just sort of burp this out this tweet did it and then the team trying to find a way to make it seem like strategic back strategically into it and then he goes to this to this rally where Omarosa is claiming the way they did. The rallies was they set it up whatever you believe them or not. She's saying it's something they wanted to have happened. It happened. He basks it and he literally basked in for thirteen seconds which T._v.. Time is like half of a television commercial. Okay okay so it's not strategic for him. It's him and what it's unleashing. NOLA DOT COM in New Orleans has a piece about a police officer suggesting that I was under Cortez. The congresswoman needs around Gretna police officer officer posted a comment on his facebook page this past week calling for representative Allesandro Casa of Cortez call her bile idiot who needs around and I don't mean the kind she used to serve as a waitress. It's unleashing real violence. It's unleashing violent threads threads inside the far right. Donald Trump won't reject so isn't that more than a strategic problem. Isn't that a national security and Domestic Security Problem Keeton well. I think when you have have the rhetoric that we've we've seen that it is problematic. I don't agree with everybody on the panel today of where it's going whereas coming or the danger to national security. I and I do think that the tone is is not proper but it does go back. Donald Trump wouldn't be doing this if there wasn't election to twenty four months. I don't think so he has this New York five literally literally on your own argument the summit I'M GONNA go. I WANNA get digging into this because the media does have a part to play in it we showed earlier the interaction that Andrew had with Kellyanne Conway but on a bigger picture the media in responding to what they've seen this week has done a few interesting things as Timmy's he's. They're still fighting about whether to call this racism because this is like this isn't just like the guy at the end of the bar racist the president of the United States and the idea that white nationalism is a whole different level than racism right and we're not they don't even go even close to that you had what I just showed the potential violence and you've seen instances of violence increase according to him and the media decides. Who should we talk about this? Who should we get? Who Can we oh Richard Spencer? Let's let him comment like he got to comment on TV Chris Cobalt who couldn't get a job in this administration. We're Stephen Miller in the abandoned abandoned used to work because he was in his background profile. They were found that white supremacy might be a property. He couldn't even get a job here. Here's what he had to say on C._N._N.. What would you do if the president said I am a racist? That's why I said it. What would you do then I would then I would not defend him because there's no excuse for racism in America? You're still support a real resident. I don't think he's racist. Okay so that happened right so I mean is how do you assess Eric as a media analyst how the media is sort of handling this this situation which could be dangerous but I don't know how doing well there's a lot of things that impact there for sure I would say in the CUOMO interview. That's that's a pretty good example of taking someone and holding them to account and showing how how so many Republicans struggle to reconcile their support for the president with his racist actions having someone like Richard Spencer on a different issue because for white supremacists like him being acknowledged by a major media outlet like C._N._n.. That is the victory he wants to be seen as a valid mainstream commentator on race and social issues so the minute you put them in front of a camera he's one and so you have to ask yourself as a journalist. What am I going to get out of talking to this person that is going to make it worth validating him as a national spokesperson on issues of race and media and politics and so I think that was a was a mistake <hes> I would also say that there are not a lot of media media outlets out there that I mean there's a lot of media outlets out there that are using word racism and racist to describe what President Trump is doing and I think the thing that is frightening to a lot of people is that there's a frustration in that even though those words are being attached to what he's doing? There's still a significant portion of people who will not reject him <hes> even though those toxic words have been applied to what he does <hes> there is some discussion in media about when you make that determination nation but a google search will reveal that there are a ton of major media outlets and have called those treats racist and have called what happened during the rally racist. We're sort of beyond I think that <hes> now and we're we're we're in a uncharted uncharted territory where even calling something racist does not call the cost some people to reject this president or his policies right and I think partly tiffany because you have the right. There's a there's an idea that as soon as you hear the race in their mind turns off because you call everybody racists very I've seen people argue about that on twitter they're not every racist is a white nationalist. Every white nationalist is and there's a very big difference between being racist which a lot of people may be and have bad feelings but still be able to watch N._B._A.. Basketball and Michael Beck later tonight to be but all the idea that this is supposed to be a white country right the underlying message of what Donald Trump said. It's worse than racism it saying this is a white country which is what white nationalists nationalists say right so Donald Trump has crept over the line. I think in this state which is why so many Republicans even themselves freaked out because saying this is a white country if you're white and European you can criticize the country like he did for twenty years say the country was garbage yeah until he was president. He said it was garbage to do that. If you're German right if your grandparents your mom was Scott as you finally yeah right I mean so we were we losing the language well at first of all we think the Magara crowd is intellectually sophisticated enough to be able to dissect racism. I'm from white nationalist. We are hopeless because that's not going to happen and I think you know. The deal is a lot of people I've never met a racist. Who Say oh yeah? I'm totally erase it. It's like you you nailed it. You call me right or yeah. I'm a white supremacist. Most people like to cloak themselves in their own false a blanket of security and equality until you start talking to them. I'll tell you quickly to trump supporters. I was on vacation and they were trying to convince me that they were not racist they said do you know how many black people I've kissed. Hello since I've been on this island and proceeded to tell me they had eleven people below. That is the most racist thing you really didn't matter then. You wouldn't know how many black people you touched or spoken. I think people have this false expectation that if I'm not walking around in the clan's hat or if I don't have a Nazi symbol on my arm I'm not a racist and that's just is not the case and just really quickly. A lot of the reason is because of the media. The media has legitimized people like Richard Spencer putting him on the media is scare and when I'm saying the media I mean mostly it's general cable news and it's like if you had more people of Color in the executive executive in the C. Suite making these decisions they could stop a lot of this from happening and say yes guy. This is a racist tweet. There's no debate here we this is the second round of debates. We're having presidential candidates where there are no black women apart of these conversations the backbone of the Democratic Party a why C._N._N.. Had what effect where they call Kellyanne conway a bad ass woman she was one of the feature start calling these things out. This is the ability all around very quickly. There's something else it's not just that there's not enough representation of people newsrooms. It's that the news industry has always been given a form of P._T._S._d.. By decades of being bashed as the liberal media and what happens is I think a lot of editors and some reporters think themselves will if I go too hard on this they're going to call me and they're gonNA call me liberal and they go really quickly Eric Eric and then I'm GonNa let Jason Beckett but Eric. The other thing that Donald Trump has been able to get away with doing this week is to try to loop Israel in and to even though he has re tweet he just re tweeted and a woman who was so anti Semitic. She lost her Murdoch. Doc Industry Columns Katie Puerto he re tweet areas retweeted her before he's re tweeted Neo Nazis multiple times during the campaign as his son but he's still trying to do this thing where they pivot and and grab Israel Israel and in order to defend themselves against the president's racism and he's really allowed to get away with that why I think the president is taking advantage of the fact that <hes> Hello I think the president is taking advantage of the fact fact that a lot of Americans don't have a real in depth knowledge of the issues that involve Israel that involve the Palestinians why some democratic and progressive politicians are criticizing them at what that criticism means and and <hes> and and and taking advantage of <hes> you know a tendency among evangelicals to silver warmly towards Israel now and taking advantage of people's ignorance. You know one thing I wanted to say that is fascinating me the about this. I think the president and other people engage in talking about race the way he has they're trying to move the goal posts in what we define as racism what we define as racist talk and that's one reason why it's so important to push back against yes and I also find it interesting that even in this moment people who are white supremacists do not want to be called racist which I don't WanNa be called racist and and and that's one of the enduring I say that's one of the enduring achievements of the Classic Civil Rights Movement is they have managed to move these words racism and racist to toxic and it's important to not allow those goalposts and we we're out of time but Jason can you hold your comment till the next block because you're going to be honest with us again all right so tiffany. Jason are GONNA come back with Mr Jason hold onto it. Keep it inside of the Commercial Break Andrew Fiber Keeton does and Eric diggins. Thank you guys very much coming up and so you would hold it for one more second because the next segment is your moment coming up maxine that's next on this vote the yeas the as are three hundred and thirty two and the NAYS are ninety five with one answering present. The motion is adopted without a Jackson. A motion to reconsider is laid on the table this this week the House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted down a resolution to begin impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump but the impeachment by a growing Group of Democrats is far from over and join me now democratic congresswoman maxine waters of California. She is the chair of the Financial Services Committee and and has been one of the most vocal proponents impeaching donald trump congressman is so great to talk with you. Thank you for being here and let me just ask you about this. Vote Boomberg reported that it's possible. Let me read what they wrote it. It's one interpretation of having having that vote that representative Al Green Force onto the floor is that speaker Pelosi simply wanted to mollify pro impeachment Democrats such as yourself by giving them an easy opportunity to express their views. Another interpretation is that the speaker isn't as opposed to impeachment she he is let on and is using this vote to gauge sentiment within the caucus or even to demonstrate that support by the support for ousting the president is growing. Did you read that impeachment vote as one of those two things well. I think that the speaker certainly has to reconsider the leadership that she's provided against impeachment. Yes I think every time there's a demonstration of an increase vote among her caucus of people who uh either a moving toward impeachment inquiry who've been away from the issue who've not supported impeachment at least they want to get into an impeachment inquiry and I think she's going to have to reconsider it as the votes Mount Yeah and if that boat that represented green put forward based on Donald Trump's racism had that vote instead been on obstruction of justice or on his participation in the crime that that Michael Cohen is in prison for or those ten instances of obstruction laid out more if he had put the if he had put that inquiry for that vote for it on that. Do you think it would have gotten more votes you think he wanted to even pat. Thanks that's great possibility because I think as members look at what is wrong with this president and all of the information that they've received about what he has done. Collusion and obstructive of justice certainly has emerged as significant issues. I think they all can be combined with racism and I think that certainly would would lead many of the members to want to go toward impeachment inquiry at least that yeah and let me tell you what Donald Trump's reaction to that vote was here it is I do Sir that the United States House of Representatives has overwhelmingly voted to kill the most ridiculous project I've ever been involved in the resolution. How stupid is that on impeach? I WanNa thank those Democrats because many of them voted for us. The vote was totally lopsided three hundred and thirty two to ninety five to one carry your reaction well. He's such a liar and he takes every opportunity to put his label on whatever is going on so you know I expected anything from this president and what he has done is he's. He's taken a boat where the impeachment inquiry perhaps is rising despite the fact that it was table and he's trying to make it seem as if it's failing and that no one of basically the majority <music> certainly do not believe that he should be impeached and he's just doing everything he can to make it believe that we those of us who want them in peace away off base that we don't know what we're doing that is absolutely witch taught it so but we believe anything that he says does is a lawyer. He is someone that has misled this country. He's a divisive president and so he is Donald Trump. We've waited too long way too alone and he has gotten away with too much and what has happened is the more we wait the more ridiculous he gets and so when we should have stopped him a long time ago and got into the impeachment effort. I think that he would have backed up. He would have been focused on. What could he do to keep the impeachment from going forward even more and so? We've waited a long time but I'm still hopeful. I'm still hopeful that the members of Congress will rise to the level of <music> our responsibility to deal with the president who is unworthy whose device it in his dangerous and do you think that the congress also waited too long to talk to Robert Muller. He's going to be here next week. Do you think they waited too long to speak to him. And do you think that hearing we'll have it make any difference. It's well you know what happened. Was the members of Congress put their efforts into saying we've got to wait for the Muller report. When the Mullahs report comes out will know what to do and he'll be able to justify impeachment so he put out his report he led us right to the point where he knows that? If we take the responsibility that is mandated to us by the constitution we would grab onto what he's given us. He's given us the fact certainly on obstruction of justice. I think there's enough there to prove collusion also then that wasn't enough and now the members of the Judiciary Committee GonNa have him before them and they're waiting to see if he's going to expound on somehow if he's going to be bringing out more information about his investigation basically what he said is. My report speaks for me. He may just get before them and say well. I'll refer you to pay one hundred thirty one online. That's my answer so I don't know if they're going to get more than they've gotten in the report very quickly before we go. The New York State of New York has passed a law saying that the Congress could have dumped from New York State Tax Returns Does Your Committee Committee has the power to get it and do you think that Congress the ways and Means Committee which definitely has the power to get those tax returns should get I think that would be in the hands of the ways and Means Committee. They're the ones who have gone after the tax returns and certainly I'm very pleased about what what happened in New York but it would be the ways and Means Committee who has oversight over tax returns okay congresswoman maxine waters. Thank you so much really appreciate it have a great Sunday. Thank you and coming up. We'll take a peek at what's happening on the other Sunday shows that's next coming up. Donald Trump's most loyal adviser Stephen Miller returns to the Sunday shows the try and spend the president's racist tweets. We'll show you how that worked out. Spoiler alert that will detail when we come back I fundamentally disagree with the view that if you criticize somebody and they happen to be a different color skin that makes it a racial criticism in fact offering whether he's in South Africa you saw from Congresswoman Presley this week that she was saying that if you are you're brown you have to speak like around person. If you're black creek like a black person that's the kind of ideology the president's rejecting thing Stephen Miller was the White House's choice to put on T._v.. Depend Donald Trump's racist attacks against the squad this week and like most trump as he could tell you deny the donald trump's attacks had anything to do with race here discuss tiffany cross the E._J.. Deal in Washington Post columnist then yellow gives Jay from the Center for American progress and Jason Johnson from the root dot com days. You've been sitting for good ten minutes thinking about this comment that was boiling inside of you ten and a half minutes ago and so I'm going to let you go first. We're going to be our first Sunday sample or you can. You can do what you had to say and then respond to Stephen Miller go well. The pressure is I just don't feel pressure already feel judged by tiffany. I'm really well. They're all expecting big things from you right so I I I WanNa talk about Richard Spencer which is not a sense that you've ever heard coming out of my mouth but I talk about retrenchments because it has to do with this idea of how the twenty four hour cable able eat ecosystem decides who isn't isn't an expert Richard Spencer is not an expert. He's just a racist you can find one of those et an uber driver and we've seen this happen all the time diamond and so hard experts on black people the bad haircuts some of this has to do with editorial decisions and look. I wouldn't ask Richard Spencer to come discuss racism anymore. That would bring an r Kelly the talk about Jeffrey Epstein the same kinds of people could be more intelligent. Ah who we bring in to discuss these issues now with that being said Stephen Miller is not only a racist and a white nationalist but he does happen to work in the White House so he has some insight that is actually an expert but I'm not surprised that he saying what he saying because Stephen Miller politics policy she says always been very clear and as we've seen every single time he goes on a Sunday show his job is to push back an attack the media because he is playing for the audience of one which is president trump so I'm not surprised by anything he says or Marc Short says or anything else like that they they believe that this is a winning combination strategically and also morally it is a moral imperative for them through immigration policy through housing policy through economic policy to make America a wider nation they are white nationalist and so therefore he's doing his job and up to expectations. I WanNa know did he. Did they attack you. Not Living Down Malign Danielle or when news Sunday shows all call the White House and say. Can you send US somebody to talk about Donald Trump's racism or they probably said his racially charged language originally originally they had a tinge of color you know hit sauce when they called and asked for that the only person willing to go of course Zim possibility that he's doing the speaking because he's all they've got and he believes deeply what he's saying just like Jason said it's like of course he wouldn't have somebody come out from the administration and talk about your your racism and you're white nationalist policies and send out the white nationalist and Stephen Miller God bless him he never for desks himself any favors when he goes on the show but to Jason's pointed it is an audience of one it does he doesn't care what we think is. Just many Donald Trump thinks. Donald Trump thinks he's a fighter yeah. Let's play it. Let's play a little bit more of him. Here's Chris Chris Wallace and who's actually taking him on on this question of stoking racial the division here it is I've never called any of those tweets racist but there's no question that he is stoking racial divisions Chris. The core element of the president's philosophy is America first saying that America needs to improve to get closer to in America first ideal as the president did as a candidate criticizing Obama criticizing our trade deals our foreign policy deals our immigration policies is out of love for America saying as as representative of Cossio Cortez did that illegal immigrants are affect more American than Americans is fundamentally okay. Let's American statement okay so putting aside the lie at the end of that statement that you know they've never said that. Undocumented people are more American the American that stupid nobody ever said that but the start of what Stephen Miller said I thought was very instructive. He says that the core of the element of the Americans of the presence flossy as America first which when it was in the nineteen thirties that was a fascist idea <hes> and so that that's where the roots of it are but Stephen Miller is writing the policies for the trump administration whose undercurrent is that this is a white nation and that there needs to be fewer brown people in it so they need to be deported and he'd be fewer Muslims in it. They need to be band. There needs to be no people coming from Central America. They need to be band. No asylum-seekers from Africa or the Central American they need to be band that is white nationalism and I think people freak out when you use the term white nationalism because it sounds like epithet but what it is that if you look up white nationalism in the dictionary and Merriam Webster's it is a belief that this country or any country that the white nationalist is in is a white country and that anything were added to it is not of that country. That's what he just said. You know what the great irony here is. If you go go back to the immigration of groups we now think of as white starting with the Irish and then going through Italians Jews Poles others from southern Europe the anti immigration people then were trying to otherwise them by saying they were people of Color People here who are white who descended from people everybody now agrees or white when they got here this same racial wine was going on. We are trump has started with his racism. A fundamental debate about what it means to be American America first he said you're right the roots of that were in opposition to getting in the war against Hitler but his America is defined not to include immigrants and not to include people of Color and let's just state the obvious if you tell four women of color three of whom were born here right that you should go back to where you came from kind of St Bully Epithet that is rates right yeah and there's no denying it and they want to have it both ways they want to say we weren't being racist but by the way we have the same definition of what it means to be American as you do white national in store person backlash person and they can't they. I think they had a bad ed week. Because you know trump had to change his tune more than usual. He went forward then back then forward again and they know they've got a problem and I call that a full Charlottesville at this did he's now completely new rate of a worse. Here's the thing is that we didn't even have immigration laws in this country until like the late eighteen hundred eighteen hundreds right for they were always to exclude people to exclude it was to free white Americans. You could come. We had open borders to White Yeah so essentially it opened boards you could just come show up in America and eventually would matriculate you went to be white then you could come and the only immigration the only way to stop it or to say that southern Europeans weren't white enough that Italians aliens were wide enough to pay which was about twelve bucks right and so the point is this argument that we can only be the America we used to be if we have closed borders. That's the opposite of how Americans got here so that that makes makes no sense yeah but Donald Trump really has revealed something which is not just the racism. That's the stuff he's been. Doing that is white nationalism. Is it not to say this is a white country and if you're not white you're not really American like you're not really French. If you're North Africa live in France but you're not French. That's what we've always criticized about. The way that Europe had used to operate yeah I think this is something that his supporters and we have to start calling his supporters supporters racist as well that mega had mega symbol has come to represent something it is the new Nazi symbol. It is the new new could the Klan Hood so I I think they don't feel comfortable describing themselves that way and so this president has to say oh. No you guys don't worry about it because this is what I mean and he says America first he means White America first and that's something that people L. Racism is so ingrained in this country that when you criticize it people feel like you're criticized you. Don't you're not a patriot and I think particularly for black people. We have such a complicated history with this country. We're no less patriots. We've always known who this country was. When people say this isn't who we are isn't it though this is exactly this racism is as American as Apple Pie? We love this country for the promise of what the country could be and if I may address what Spencer said or not Spencer I get them so confused it Stephen Miller Congresswoman Presley <hes> she she was not saying that you have to talk like a brown person she was saying we don't need people in Congress who show up with Brown faces who don't want to be brown voices with black faces who don't want to be black voices because we all know the two are not always the same. I mean you can take Omarosa for example. She was a black face and this administration. I don't know that I would describe her. As a black voice you can take the new omarosa Candice Owens whatever her name is she is obliged face. She certainly isn't a black voice and so I don't want him to have the opportunity to misconstrue saying and even his language itself was very racist. The term illegal immigrant is overwhelmingly offensive then even that comes with Aidid. It's outdated Congressman Joaquin Castro Chair the Hispanic Caucus introduced legislation this week to remove it from the federal government lexicon so we can start having a more inclusive government and live up to what the promise of what America's determined in media we don't use it anymore and it used to be a very common thing they let me play one more clip of Stephen Miller and this was talking about the way that Donald Trump used to talk about America when the president was black lack when it was brought up President Obama take a listen he wrote the United States under President Obama has truly become the gang that couldn't shoot straight everything he touches turns to garbage and you'd see through that doesn't A._F._C. Donald J this interview Chris you continuing to Conflict Donald Trump's criticisms of president Obama versus deep and systemic criticisms of the country itself Danielle uh-huh who don't curse don't curse I mean are you. Are you kidding me like the Donald trump he should leave by his own standards because he used to criticize as we saw right there this country under Obama all the time because he cannot. I'm not stomach the fact that it was led by a black person and again Stephen Miller God bless him he tried but you cannot erase the words that were right there in front of us. I just have to say I want. I want to piggyback on something that Tiffany said again that for black black Americans are relationship with this country is very complicated. My parents are immigrants. I'm a first generation American thing. Past Week has been really really difficult but I will take a back seat to no one when it comes to loving this country and with that love comes the right to criticize. Is everybody including the President Yeah absence to way of being the very beginning yeah. That's the whole point of it. Okay what Tiffany Jay Jason hold it in. We're GONNA come right. Back hasn't come back Danielle. It gives Jay thank you very much for being here and for being here here in America appreciate all of us. We ain't leaving Lavar we go to break. We do have to say goodbye to somebody who diner gives stealing. She's taking a wedding was because he's going to work. Here's agreed with embarrassing. What about T._V.'s conceive ashamed that he's leaving A._M.? Danieli was up there. Dare you cook your off visit. You unannounced many occasions N._B._C. Way. No we love you okay. I'll just admit that only this one time congratulations congratulations time to find out who okay you know what time it is time to my home on the week each seventy Catholic priests <music> who sat in at the Capitol to protest the barbarism of trump's immigration policies and an interfaith group that included a lot of Jewish progressive activists who also sat in at ice or the WASCO. Oh great radical had a t shirt that said resisting tyrants since Phero I think to see at a time when religion is much contestant when it's being used on behalf of trump to see religious prophets and eighty year old nun's a ninety roll nonsol- away in handcuffs tells you what religion the message religion can send it supposed to send it and I hate the fact that trumpism has eaten up religion and gobbled up and now people think of Christians that and it is not that at all that church that had the friendship Baptist Church that said if you date America leave that is not that these folks put their lives on really depressing week yeah you could sort of look at them and be inspired it for them. Well God bless them all right. Let's go to tip off and one of the week. I'm Michelle. Obama won the week and I'll tell you why turns every week me by watching this week. She kicked off a new program with her initiative. When we all vote where she is laser focused on getting young people to vote now in the midterms we saw a surge across the country of young people voting but really it so wasn't enough? Only one in three young people voted well in twenty twenty. There'll be over three point five million young people who are currently high school students who will be eligible to vote yeah and she has kicked off a program with them the N._e._A.. AF T- teachers organization says they encourage these students to register to vote and she's not telling them who to vote for wink wink but she is trying to incorrect and not for nothing. I think it's something still that she is one of the few people across polls that shows can beat Donald Trump in the double digits see an oprah personally. She's the most women in America yes. She is phenomenal and she's not just about wearing cute. Balenciaga boots days and the pressure is on those were two options. I mean then you gotta go and go up against Jesus so much to do but go all right so I am here in San Diego Comic Con the largest Comic Book Convention in the World. You have fifty thousand people all erases all sexualities all bodies all different kinds and my winner of the week goes to the only twenty twenty Democratic candidate who came to COMECON and that is cory booker came here and said he is a Geek a geek. He's always science fiction. He's always like Star Trek. He said that his girlfriend Rosario Dawson introduce him to Luke Cage daredevil. I know he won't impress tiffany because he said he has seen the last season of game of thrones yet cory booker credit for being the only Democratic candidate who was pushing to win the Nerd vote in two thousand twenty but I couldn't see him that picture did he costly. He did not cause what he dresses a senator but he did do V._R.. Glass he talked about his favorite star Trek. Be just fine. That's fine. That's fine no. I'm glad that he quit because look. I'm very jealous that you're a COMECON by the way like extremely jealous or I should be wearing green gelling. It is cool that he went there because he has geeks rule we do you cory booker is I can see him going because he is. He just has a fun anyway. Yes I think he would have gone anyway all right good for that all right. That's good that's great. I think that's great. God bless him for going but my winner is yeah. I think you cannot beat this. You guys sometimes. I'll let you listen it Sunday. Thank you sorry I worked on Sundays. I apologize for that as well. Winner of the week is Katherine Johnson the Great Katherine Johnson the groundbreaking African American mathematician. She's celebrating the Fiftieth Anniversary of the moon landing which was yesterday coming out with their own memoir. It's called reaching for the Moon Johnson's handwritten calculations with a hidden figures behind NASA's first crude mission into space despite having to work in a male dominated and segregated space donald was the first woman to put her name on a report and her work laid the foundation of Nasa Space Shuttle Program that later put a man on the moon the two thousand sixteen movie. I'd read this now that our producer thank you for writing this down. I wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything so I had her. Write this up for me. The two thousand sixteen movie hidden figures portrays the Work Johnson to other African American Women Dorothee von and Mary Jackson contributed to NASA nineteen sixty to launch she was awarded the Medal of freedom by President Obama in two thousand fifteen and here's the best part about it. I don't know if you wanted to M._S._N._B._c. but this is one hundred years old. She's going to be one hundred and one and she is still rockin still the smartest person on earth and so I had to pick Katherine Johnson as my who won the week she won the week. She won the last fifty years. We have this kind of science fiction if it weren't for her so then Yeah Kabakov so I appreciate that but I mean very quickly let's say politically very quickly lightning around Jason who won the we politically this week. Actually I'd say people to judge I mean he actually rolled out his Marshall. Plan is Douglas Plan. He's been talking about Outta immortal. I'm very impressed and I'm surprised okay okay Egypt quickly. I think all of the Caucasus in the House Democratic caucuses who kind of reached an agreement saying let's stop attacking each other a while Smart Smart Congressman Presley because I know the squad gets a lot of talk about their push back but they actually deuce pretty solid legislation this week she introduced a bill to laser focus on student debt and huge issue for a lot of young people across the country. I on out of the squad watch her fingering her in the Boston Globe Yeah. She used to work for yeah. She's going to be I promise you that ladies and watch her autograph but watch out oppressing.

Dems Turning on Pelosi? | 1/17/19

"Pat, gray is here on the blaze radio network. We have so much to get to today. It's going to be like Sophie's choice of getting to it. All. But that might leave, you know, some some gooey goodness for tomorrow to and then of course, we've got more interviews. Well in the second hour tomorrow. What's the game this week keeps it's going to be the Rams at the saints. Yeah. There's only to choose choose from. Right. Well, if you don't wanna go back to back. Uh-huh. Okay. So Rams saints that should be fantastic game. Yeah. Not a scoring lot of things going on with the border of there's the Brexit situation, which we haven't gotten into much. But I I wanted till you about story the Scotty Sweatman sentence. He tweeted the story out to us from the babble on beef. You're not a familiar with the Babylon be very funny, satirical, website and. They write that Satan has claimed responsibility for kale, of course, we knew this was true. You know, it was true in your heart. You knew it was true. You may not have verbalised it. But thankfully, someone has amid claims that the ungodly disgusting substance could not have been possibly conceived by a benevolent creator, the great adversary Satan published a video claiming he alone was responsible for the violent attack upon humanity known as kale authorities had long surmised that whoever invented the bitter repulsive leaf cabbage did so with millennial malevolent intent and the dark Lord statement confirms that kale was in fact designed to be an act of terrorism against mankind. Yes, you fools. It was meal along Satan said on the video posted to social media Tuesday. Who else do you think could have deceived? People at a paint tons of money for horrible overpriced or gannet, kale, chips and salads. Only. I the father of lies possibly have convinced people. They actually like the nauseating taste of kale. He added before breaking into ominous booming laughter. Publishing time the devil had also claimed total and complete responsibility for Kombucha and keen wa. Awesome. Oh that was satire. I thought that was it is to me. It's pretty real. Yeah. That's real. It's pretty real. And that's of course, why I've turned to brickhouse nutrition because they created field of greens, which is a real SuperFood where you get kale in it. But you don't taste the kale? All right. Yeah. You don't have to taste it tastes Satan's creation. Right. I think he also created brussel sprouts and spinach. Oh, yeah. That's those rumors are now being firmed. Yeah. And green beans. I don't obviously I don't like any of that stuff. And that's why field greens is so perfect for me. It's an actual SuperFood containing all that great stuff. All the nutrition you need. In fact, just one scoop field greens has a full serving real USDA organic fruits and vegetables complete with Addie oxidants. And if it wasn't for this for this fantastic product, I would never get vegetables in my diet. Never it's easy. It tastes great. And it really works. You're gonna love this stuff. Brickhouse Pat dot com where you go to get it try today. Get fifteen percent of a month's supply when you use the offer code, Pat, brickhouse, Pat dot com. I love this story. About Dan Crenshaw, refusing pay during the shutdown Now, Dan Crenshaw's, a is a new congressman a veteran who lost his eye in the service of this country. And now you saying, yeah, you know, what I can't accept pay during the shutdown. And that obviously created an uproar of criticism one of his democrat colleagues criticized the gesture and her name is Ilan Omar of she's a democrat from Minnesota. She says we are paid until February first so no pay to withhold right now vote to reopen. The government like we did and give hardworking fed employees their paychecks that's carrying stop this virtue, signaling congressman the American people need to end this. Now, not February first stop the virtue, signaling signaling a what? What is that? Where did this virtual signaling phrase come from? I don't even know what that is. I guess it's a signal to the world that you're virtuous. Or you're faking it, I don't know. And be tell me we haven't arrived at a time in America where everything good is bad and everything bad is is good just as was foretold in Zia. You know, if you offer to have your tax payer funded salary withheld do a government shutdown. That's not good it's bad because you virtue signalled if you try to stop the murder of unborn babies. That's not good. That's that's bad. You're interfering with a woman's right to choose her reproductive rights. If you oppose people from other places, breaking our laws, that's not good, of course, bad because you hate you hate people from other places, and you're obviously racist if you support traditional marriage between a man and a woman that's not good. It's it's very bad. The because that makes you a homophobe. If you believe gender is eternal and that there are only two that's not good. That's it's bad. Because you obviously hate gender fluid people. I that that is where we are. Now, you you can't even do the right thing and not be. Dog slept for it. I just I it's difficult to take. And so the border battle continues and the shutdown battle continues. This is the longest of all time. Ripta what twenty eight days now twenty or or twenty eight days, it's a lot. I know that right in there. And by the way on the weekend before Christmas, they sent out a group of all in tears. This is another reason reason number seven million eight hundred thirty thousand y we need to get a grip on the border situation group. Volunteers went down to search for the remains of dead migrants on the Barry Goldwater air force range, the remote desert area in southwest eras were military jets conduct live bombing exercises. The volunteers recovered the skeletal remains of eight migrants into days. And so over all last year, the remains of one hundred twenty seven dead migrants were recovered in in southern Arizona alone. And frankly, we've done a lot to try to prevent this the border when the border patrol fines of the bring them help. They don't beat them with clubs. They get them help to get them water. They get them food the get the medical services. Do you? Remember when we place the water stations at the border, so they wouldn't thirst to death. We even built water stations for them to accommodate them as they're breaking our law sneaking into our country. And still, you know, one hundred twenty seven people died just in that small area last year. That's just those. That's just too we found who knows what the actual figure is. The caring thing to do is to get a grip on this thing. Just and we're just not doing it. Branches and farmers near the US Mexico border. Have also been finding something kind of interesting at the border because keep in mind, good hardworking decent people from Mexico central and South America. That's all who's coming across that border. And every single one of them are N Djelic all of them. They're they're the most wonderful salt of the earth people, you can possibly imagine. When no wonder the Democrats don't wanna border wall. You don't wanna walk. Great people. Like that. Don't know you don't. They all represent wonder and and love. So are they finding like angelic robes down there along the border? Is that what we're seeing? I think in part. Yes, they're finding a lot of Anjelica robes and then to show you that. Yeah. Okay. There's just really hardcore religious people. They're finding prayer rugs whatnot. Prayer rugs. You know from from people of the Muslim faith. Okay. Now, what's the problem with mysteries lab? No problem. Problem. It's just that these people are forgetting their stuff and leaving behind upset by how do you find them? You know, it's like. Found out there next to the water St. right, boy, hey, could forty eight hundred people who left there prayer rugs. Please report to the way station. In near mcallen, Texas, please. I got a call from Joe's already cross he said, hey, somewhere, mcallen. I lost. My my magic carpet there. Can you try to find it? They may have turned it in and bring it up here to Dallas with you saw means is that obviously there's Muslims crossing the border. There. It means that they're not just coming from Mexico. They're not just coming from central and South America. They are coming from the Middle East wouldn't when you draw that conclusion and every time you mentioned that the Democrats are like oh, nobody's coming from potential chair is kind of crass. But no evidence of that you're making that up. Okay. But one one of the ranchers who found a prayer rug said there's a lot that are coming not just from Mexico. They're coming from all over people, the general public just don't get the terror threats of that. That's what's really scary. He said, you don't know. What's coming across? We've found prayer rugs out here. It's unreal. It's not just Mexican nationals. That are coming across just because you find a prayer doesn't mean they're terrorists. Obviously. But it's a clue that okay? There might be some issues. There is a group of Muslims have promised to bring terror to our shores. And there's a huge story today about one an American though in this particular case, but a radicalized Muslim who wanted to blow up the White House thank heaven. They caught this guy. Did you read the the plans that he had going? Yeah. Had a tank missiles take out a tank coca antitank rocket Nick, you think some people would call that some people. Yeah. You know, people who knew what they were talking about Georgia, probably not originally. But what do I know just looking at his name there? Hi, shar Jalal to have twenty one. Yeah. Sounds like Alabama does arrested yesterday charged with attempting to damage or destroy a building owned by the United States using fire or an explosion. Explosive. It's not immediately clear whether he has an attorney, but we'll provide one for him, which is the beauty of this country. Of course, a local on forcement agency contacted the FBI in March after getting a tip from someone who said to have had become Radha radicalized. He had changed his name plan to travel abroad. The affidavit says to have told a confidential F B I source at Tober that he planned to travel abroad for history which the agents had refers to traveling to territory controlled by the Islamic state. All right. That's nice because he didn't have a passport he couldn't travel abroad. So he wanted to do as much damage here as he possibly could any met with the undercover agent and the FBI source multiple times last month and was also infrequent frequent contact using an encrypted messaging application during one meeting to have advise that if they were to go to another country, they'd be one of many. But if they stayed in the United States, they could do more damage. He explained that Jiahd was an obligation that he wanted to do as much damage as possible and he expected to be a martyr in the cause. So he was really trying to. I mean, he and this person who is pretending to help him. We're going to sell their cars in exchange or trade their cars in exchange for all this weaponry, including the anti-tank rocket. Then they were going to go into the White House where he had he had schematics of the west wing and the floor plan there. So once he got inside he was going to try to kill as many people as he possibly could. Can you imagine had that had that plan succeeded? Wow. I mean that changes that changes everything. So fortunately that was somebody. He was talking to that was shocked at what he was doing and saying and planning and the alerted the authorities. It's nice to know that something is still shocking and twenty nine thousand America, isn't it. Yeah. That's great. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three. When was the last time you had your ears professionally cleaned if ever if they're itchy or you have pain there or they feel plugged up. All the time constantly not hearing people, right?

Gray of unleashed. So you wouldn't be afraid if they were leaving bottles behind the border, you haters legit that wouldn't even that wouldn't worry you one little bit final kinds of bibles at the borders depends on which translation it is. King. James, right. You're like, whoa. We got some fundamentalist in here. We'd better locked down right now. But if it's one of those have the new ones with the word says, dude, dude. Yeah. Like, dude kiss chick. Like when when Jesus said do don't do that. Yeah. When guys like what? Who'd I told you about that tree? What are you doing man? What's up? He'll. That's the the good version of it. So. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three. Here's a a report, ranchers and farmers if you don't believe me, this is talking about the ranchers and farmers who are finding the prayer rugs on their properties. They don't have it any proof of it. But I've talked to several agents that I trust. There's not a lot that I do trust. But the ones that I do trust. I've talked to him the percentage of what Berbatov classifies as OTM's has really increased in the last couple years, drastically months Chinese Germans Russians a lot of Middle Eastern middle easterners, those Czechoslovakians they cut over on our neighbor this last summer, there's a lot of of people coming in from not just Mexico, and they and people the general public just don't get the terrorist facts of that. And that's what's really scary. You don't know. What's coming across? We've found prayer rugs out here. It's it's unreal. It's not just Mexican nationals. That are coming over the heat. Did you hear the hate numbers? I totally heard. Oh my gosh. My gosh. The just the emnity the. Zoo's almost hyperventilating. She was so crazy. Well, yeah. Nuts just out of her mind with eight and then she just. For for for token affect through in the French and Germans and. Okay. You're worried about. Hey, by the way, there is no Czechoslovakia anymore. Okay. Pumpkin point. Yeah. All right. Check tried to tell us Czechoslovakians. What is this nineteen sixty eight pudding that what this is Cold War is over. Yeah. Okay. The seventies called back. They want their country back the iron curtain is gay. Could lose the two. And yes Mel neck is check. So I'm gonna hollow defensive like Czech Republic or well. I mean, we're check made to or talking old school. Gotta check is it. All right. Czechoslovakia from back in the day before Czechoslovakia. Oh, wow. I'm a check on that for you. And get back to you know, what I did there. There was a door. You're not acting like it was a door will give me the could she sound anymore reasonable, right. I mean that was just sincere. Hey, look, there's a lot of people coming across that. They're not telling you about and the the media is not reporting on any of that. It's like, oh, these are just all workers, you know, for America. That's all and what was her source border patrol agents that she trusts. Yeah. And then she lives there who knows better than the people who live right at the border. Side. I don't know. I guess the people up in DC, I guess Nancy Pelosi up in San Francisco. She knows better. Let's play. Do we have the do? We have the montage of what these Democrats used to say all the time. Then I mean, this is Barack Obama Nancy Pelosi. Barbara Boxer Nessie you've played this in the past. But this is gotten says even more people in and listen to this it making it easy to illegally enough. How about offering a reward for being an illegal immigrant? No sun. No Saint country would do that. Right. Guess again. If you break our laws by entering this country without permission give birth to a child, we reward that child with US citizenship and guarantee a full access all public and social services, this society provides it is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws. We have seen in recent years, and we must do more to stop. Think we can't enforce our borders. I think we should enforce our borders to to have a situation where forty percent of the babies born on Medicaid. Hello -fornia today are born of illegal immigrants a very real problem. Weird deeply opposed to illegal immigration, and I call on the federal government the president in the immigration services to stop the influx of illegal immigrants into this country. I believe we have very serious immigration problems in this country. I think as you've heard today sanctions against employers who hire illegal immigrants virtually non-existent how border is very porous soil. Look I voted numerous times when I was a Senator to spend money to build a barrier. Very tried to prevent. Immigrants from coming in. Well, that's all. And I do think you have to control your borders. Why we simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected on documented really unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently gently and lawfully to become immigrants. I've been saying, but is that illegal immigration is wrong. Plain and simple until the American people are convinced that we will stop future flows of illegal immigration. We will make no progress. What the heck where did all that come from naturally where did all that? Go. What? Well, I mean. It's just their structure eighty degrees. Man it. Yes, exactly. They are the opposite of that today. Those weren't that's not ancient history. That's the last five and ten in twenty years. What was the quote illegal immigration is wrong planet? Simple. Yeah. What he said. Yes. Schumer sue, so. Yeah, it's hard to get around that they didn't even so much wiggle room. No illegal immigration is wrong. Plain and simple. Okay. What what happened to that? And why will no one ask them? Why will none of these reporters because that's not the agenda? That's why somebody Fox News. Someone should ask these guys. Hey, what happened to your stance on illegal immigration in securing the border? What happened to that? Now, you're willing to keep the government shutdown completely. So that you don't have to provide a penny in border security. So that you so that we make sure we never secure that border and continue to send the signal to everybody in the world. Hey, all y'all y'all come free. We're we don't care. Just come across the border will do nothing to stop it. Nothing. It's amazing. Just don't be coming from Germany or France, or Czechoslovakia. Yeah, they won't be coming from Chuck. I can Gary to you. They will not come from Czechoslovakia. Noted. Yeah. It's. Boy, what was this. I I need to look this up. You know, how the Republicans have been cracking from day one and this shutdown? Susan Collins led the charge, right? Did. I see something we're Democrats or some some democrat to look this up. They may be having a little trouble as well. Now in wanting to give in. Yeah. I got it looked this up. I think I saw a headline forget the read the story. So way to bring that to air Keith before having read it, but anyhow going to find out give us some look forward to. Yeah. Yeah. So there's hope that waiting with baited breath. That's the case. I hope it is true because it would be nice to you know, to stop the shutdown because the things that you want shutdown aren't like I want congress to go home and stop doing stupid things here. If they were going to do something good you'd want them to be in in their in their seats in the halls of congress. But they're not. Yeah. So check that out freshman Democrats, turn on Pelosi over border wall seep deal with Trump, really. So let's see here. Several freshman democrat members of the new house of representatives majority of turned on speaker, Nancy Pelosi Anderson, refusal to fun. Today or do another talking about a deal? Like does this included Cossio Cortes? Let's see that would be interesting. If Nancy Pelosi is is more hardline on this than she is. She is not mentioned in this article. Okay. She's too busy making annoying videos with Al Sharpton. And and and angering folks. Joe lieberman. Yeah. Joe lieberman. His kind of his kind of democrat doesn't exist anymore. Nope. Inactive Democrats in office? It just doesn't exist, by the way. Top North Korean official is set to meet President Donald Trump and secretary of state Michael pump in Washington later this week. That's according to four people familiar with the matter, Kim, Young Chawl. A top aide to North Korean leader Kim Jong UN is scheduled to be in Washington tomorrow as part of negotiations over their country's nuclear program. So apparently it is proceeding. Two of the people said his plans include a meeting with Trump. The State Department spokesperson said there's no meetings to announce that either means, okay? The it's faulty information or just not going to announce it. And early round of talks, you might remember that was supposed to take place in November was cancelled. The announcement of the first summits date came. When Chawl a former North Korean spike chief involved in decades of nuclear talks, visited Trump at the White House in June that about ten days after that, visit Trump and Kim got together in Singapore. So the hope is that maybe this will happen again. And maybe we can move this thing along a little bit and defuse that whole situation which would be an amazing accomplishment by this administration. Because no one's been able to do that yet. So keep our fingers crossed on that. Also, Nancy Pelosi has asked Trump to reschedule the state of the union because of the shutdown, and I think the speaker has to invite the president to congress. I can she shut it down if she wants to she officially say there will be no state of the union address. I think since she controls the agenda of everything in that chamber. I think in I think that's what the case is. Yes, she has to it's always a formal extent. You know, hey, you know, coming something. Well, talk about the bringing us together. What was the last time that happened if ever it's another thing we should look into? But they don't want to give them a platform to blame them for the shutdown. So there they wanted to reschedule the state of the union or deliver it in writing that's old school right there. I think they should make him chisel it out in stone, tablets and. Yeah. And then have it delivered. That'd be interest by a bearded messenger. Take a while. By the time. He gets. Tonight on that right away. Pelosi said the partial shutdown. It's hamstrung both the US secret service and the department of homeland security potentially harming the security planning that precedes the state of the union address. But that's kind of interesting because the secret service that she mentioned here says, yeah, we don't know anything about that. What are you talking about? You haven't come to us with that. We didn't tell you that. She said, sadly, given the security concerns, and unless government reopens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine a suitable date after the government has reopened. And we'll see who wins that battle to triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three. Let me tell you real quickly about home title. Lock home Tytler is something that could protect you from a well, a disastrous situation if somebody steals your title, and they're all available on the internet and fairly easily stolen, then they transfer your title to a quick title deed, and for your signature in the own your home.

Hundred dollar value. It's home title dot com. Get it today. Get that peace of mind. Pat, gray unleashed. We're we're kind of wondering. Whether or not Nancy Pelosi can officially just tell the president. Nope. There won't be a state of the union speech. The US constitution mandates article two section three the president's shall from time to time give to the congress information of the state of the union recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary inexpedient, but it offers no specifics on how that should happen. But obviously, we've got the pageantry of the televised address. Now, it just doesn't have to be that way. Now, here's a look at the history of the state of union address as the White House ways response to Nancy Pelosi. In the first one delivered by obviously, George Washington, January eighth seventeen ninety. Does it have to be a speech? Nope. Thomas jefferson's? I address on December eighteen a one he sent written copies to both houses of congress to be read by each chambers clerks. He wanted to simplify what he believed was an aristocratic imitation of the British monarch speech from the throne. Then the practice of sending written copies to congress continued for more than a century. Wow. Then of course, Woodrow Wilson resume the tradition of delivering the annual speech in person. It was it wasn't until FDR. That was even known as the state of the union speech. It was just an annual message. It's like win. The Super Bowl is called Gathie AFC the AFL NFL championship game or whatever. It was. How has the speech but affected by advances in communication, well, Calvin Coolidge delivered the first speech broadcast on radio in nineteen twenty three. Harry Truman was the first one to be broadcast on TV and Lyndon Johnson recognize the importance of having a national audience when you move the speech from mid afternoon to primetime in nineteen sixty five. Now has it been postponed? Yes, there have been several instances, though, they all appear to have been initiated by the White House run. Reagan eighty six. Postponed the speech after the challenger space shuttle exploded yet, you would think. Okay. Yeah. That's appropriate in nineteen forty four Roosevelt was scheduled to to deliver the address on January eleventh. But instead transmitted a written message because because of his health. What about a during a shutdown state of the union addresses yet to coincide with a full more partial government shutdown now boy still now so uncharted territory. Like everything right now. It's gotta fun. Jason florida. You're on the blaze. Hey, good morning. How are we doing? Well, listen, I've got an idea. You know, the curb Pelosi is kinda showing how small petty and spiteful she is by one she's doing to the president my suggested, maybe the president on just take it to congress taking Greg. They two people go over to our case stadium and fill that stadium with all of us and give that speech and watch how small they really look then that'd be kind of cool. And he'd be the one to pull it off. If anybody could thanks Jason predate it. Yeah. And conservatory and lady tweeted pedal leashed. Why don't do it from the Oval Office while you good? Yeah. Well, eating a Big Mac with border agent standing behind him. But yeah, absolutely. Why not do it from the Oval Office? I think you absolutely could if you wanted to it just says you have to I mean, congress can watch if they want to can be trivia trivia question this president game a state of the union from the Oval Office. That'd be fun. Yeah. You know, we'll know the answer because it'll just happened. It will have just been pretty recent. So didn't necessarily mean the trivia probably say, yes, I Don Donald Trump in the near future could have been something, you know, ten twelve years down the road. All right. Okay. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three ended Pat unleashed on on Twitter where spunk in brunettes. Tweets. Kale is the candy corn of health food. Now. See I disagree. I like candy corn kale is no, no, hopped up pants hamster. We've lost the ability to make a sumptious about people's names after someone named their kid. Acidy navy? This from some guy named Steve while such hate and Xena phobia from those Democrats, they could never host the Oscars. TJ top state of the union is a waste of time and money shut it all down. There's that too. You could just do it in writing. But you know, people are all steeped in this in the new fangled way, we do it. And seriously, we haven't done it like that forever. In fact, it's the minority of the history of the United States of America where we have done it like this. Meanwhile, as far as the shutdown Keith mentioned a few minutes ago that some of the freshmen some of the freshman congressmen are starting to split with Nancy Pelosi's hard line. They include Representative Abba Abigail span burger from Virginia. She defeated Dave brat defeated. What's his face? The can't Eric Eric cantor. So she says she's getting enormous pressure in her district to the point where she thinks Democrats aren't performing well in handling the shutdown. She said if I'm getting comments and contact for my constituents expressing concern that the Democrats are not prioritizing security, then I think we can do better. Representative Collin Allred from Texas. Says that they're all he's open to funding President Trump's wall as part of a deal. I'm not gonna rule anything out. I'm really really not. But I like that the first quote, you said that shows it makes a difference to call your congressman. Yeah, apparently. Yes. Getting some pressure there from constituents on building the wall, which we kind of give it up on. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And there's an indication maybe we shouldn't. And there's more democrat freshman that are. Yes, Lucy bath from democrat. She's a democrat from Georgia. Befuddled. Her name was for middle was tak-, like Lucy, take them bath. They will say that's just what we work with a chance here. I call him. Take see whenever a what's up tak- chance there Lucy. Take him bath also quoted she says, she's hoping for a compromise with Trump on the wall. I hope we can all come to a compromise. Because that's the way things get done. We don't compromise. The American people are the ones who get hurt Nancy about that right now. They're hanging in the balance from Jeff drew of New Jersey, another freshman democrat, if I had the opportunity to vote for some sort of a deal I would. I think if we work on the border security, in my opinion, the president would be willing to work on some of these other issues, maybe some of these people don't hate Trump as much as they haven't been there. The leadership give them a few minutes. I know, but that's promising. That's very promising. Yeah. So it's nice. See? Yeah. There's some cracks in that rhymer to regardless of the issue. It's nice to see some voices of dissent to the leadership on the left for change. Sure is wow, we see that all the time with Republicans. Now, we've got some Democrats splitting with the democrat leadership. Good. Good. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three. This is an amazing story. A jury has awarded a Miami hotel dishwasher. Twenty one point five million dollars because they made her work on Sunday. And then she wouldn't work on Sunday. 'cause it's against religion. She said, yeah, it's part of honoring the Sabbath and keeping it holy to her. And she got fired. So she took him to court and won eight twenty one point five million dollar settlement by a lot of bibles. They're good grief. However, unfortunately for the sixty year old woman. Okay, Marie Pierre. She's not likely to end up getting all that money. Instead, it'll be more around five hundred thousand that's a big difference. Still. I mean, five hundred thousands of nice. That's a nice check. What happened to the twenty one point five the punitive damages are capped in federal court. And the jury didn't know that they thought that they punished the Hilton hotel with twenty one million dollars. So she's only gonna get the five hundred thousand of it. She'd get up to three hundred thousand punitive damage, which is the limit in federal court and in a. Addition to the five hundred thousand dollars awarded for emotional distress, thirty five thousand in back wages. So she'll probably after legal fees white up with around half a million still. I mean, yes. But. That's a big difference. It's it's probably bad to codify law like totals amounts. Somewhere the constitution. I'm looking at right here Ruth. There's a money. There's actually money mentioned, you know, two dollars or something like a fine shall not exceed two dollars or something. Like that. I don't know. And it's like don't do that don't put founding fathers did make a big mistake. They put a dollar amount in the constitution. And that's always a problem. I can't think where that is. Yeah. I'm gonna for something that is shall not exceed or something. It's in here. So find it two dollars used to be real money. That's what I'm saying. I'm marches on you know, let me tell you about Cosmo hurts kids. It's it's great when it individual sees a problem, and then has the courage to take a really strong stand. That's what Victoria I is done. And in her case, it's pretty amazing because her family's corporation, the Hearst corporation, owns Tuzla, politics magazine. And that's what she's kind of fighting against. She believes and so do I and we pointed out many times Cosmo contains pornography, and that's harmful to kids. And so she doesn't want them to have to stop putting it in there. She just wants the state's harmful states material harmful to minor laws applied to cosmopolitan legged his other forms of pornography. And then you couldn't sell it to the kids under eighteen just it makes a lot of sense. It's a reasonable effort to try to help our kids. And when you look at the articles, we just had one the other day that we saw about sex positions. Okay. Really? You're going to be teaching these kids who are buying your magazine all about that. And yes, they do. That's what they do. So if you'd like to learn more about Cosmo hurts kids campaign, go to Cosmo hurts kids dot com. Again, it's not about free speech is just about protecting kids. So if you believe that pornography should be kept out of the hands of kids under eighteen then visit Cosmo hurts kids dot com. That's Cozma hurts kids dot com. Hat great on weeks. Fund, the fine. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So it's in let's see here and suits at common law where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars the right of trial by jury Shelby preserved yada, yada, yada. So in other words, if you're oh, it's twenty dollars trying to sue for more than twenty dollars. And. Yeah. So also also talking about slave importation talks about a tax duty, maybe imposed on such importation not exceeding ten dollars for each person. So probably not best to fix a dollar amount. Yeah. Constitution, right? All right. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three. And at Pat unleashed on Twitter course, what happened Tuesday night in the cable news race. Rachel Maddow on MSNBC had three point two million viewers, which is way higher than normal for her. She was number one on the night wonder who she had on. It wasn't Tuesday night. Okay. Then it was Tucker Carlson at two point six. So she beat everybody by a lot like over six hundred thousand then the five was third in Hannity just fourth then MSNBC's. O'donnell two point four million wonder what was going on Tuesday night. I don't know. But I'm not able to find out at MSNBC dot com since I haven't downloaded the current adobe flash player. Really got that thing. I got that. I haven't seen that message in a long time. That's there. Let's get yourself. Dobie flash player. Let's see we got Chuck Schumer was on with her looks like Cording to the transcript on Tuesday, Amy klobuchar and Chuck Schumer were guests on Rachel Maddow. Wow. Wow. That's exciting. Chuck Schumer is going to be on come on kids. Kid imagine. That's what sparked her just saying. That's pretty weird Tuesday night. One fifteen January fifteenth. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. Wow. That's that's pretty ruck in good time. Right. There can be coming over. Was that the night that we found we found out? Maybe people were just looking for the Trump bashing is that what that was because it was that the day that he hosted Clemson hamburgers. Yeah. The hamburgers yet a thousand hamburgers. He gave out to the Clemson you believing all the man burners Domi, let me. Let me slim. W ever need to update. Your your auto. Correct. Your your phones dictionary with all due respect, by the way. While you're at it update your head. Head stupid is rich like that. Michael Strahan says once you give them lobster, man. I'll treat him to love stirred like a champion should be fed. Shut up all loved it. Shot up to hosting your drag Queen eight year old or whatever it was on your show that yeah. Yes. It was him. What do you wanna bet that eighty percent of those guys would rather have the hamburgers and pizza than lobster? I'll betcha eighty percent of them. But what was ridiculous was Trump? This film. I can't let that go. You know, he's probably the dumbest president of all time from probably not just president. It's probably the dumbest person who ever walked this earth ever. Yeah. Because you remember the good days with Obama when he didn't do any of that was so smart. I mean, he was perfect factual Lau shame rooms, I know was telling because he's kind of above us above us. He's kinda like God. If I remember my Newsweek editor correctly, Thomas or something. Yeah. That was a good. It was a good time. They're talking about how he's kind of floating above us. Yeah. He's sort of in a way above the country above the world. He's sort of got he's he's. He's. Sort of of the country. Let's let's let's be clear here. He's not sort of is. He's there. He is. There is there. I mean, this guy was so smooth. And so smart, here's a good example of that when he was talking with he actually had he was introducing Eric Holder was introducing home general when we back with. Here's what happened how brilliantly mandalit Eric married up. Yeah. He and his wife. Sharon Malone, the nationally renowned beginning been great friends for years OB gyns gotta hit that one again, please. Oh, my he goes up. He and his wife. Sharon, Malone, nationally, renowned guiding been great. Can't OB gyns over ninety. And so he doesn't know OB GYN. Yeah. I just wanted to make sure that that that wasn't Eric holder's wife's name. So I did some research on Sharon or whatever there and her name's not OB Gainey. No. It's actually she's an who's no. Yes. Sel Waldman for tweeting that yesterday I have never heard that one. And I have either I mean that right threat at the top. Now, all that set the best one Italy lions or any sports poser line that he tries throw out there. Malysz one Gainey this one is so good.

Remember, the Bush thing we've talked about OBGYN's too, many OBGYN join able to practice their their women across this country too. Many OB gyns. Busy practicing their love women all over this country and the OB gyns. Yeah. He actually said OBGYN ladies, don't forget to make your appointments with your OB guiding if you haven't been in a while so got to be it's always a good idea. I think at least once a year right guiding get your over ninety appointments spelled Gainey anyway is G Y N E Y, it's Gyi in. I e I e OB gained Guidi, and it's I think it's period be period. Ganey? That's amazing that that one got bias. I don't know how we didn't see that man. Because today was the first time I'd ever seen the the Obama OB Gainey clip. That's and of course, the mainstream media never said anything about it. 'cause he was perfect to them. He was sheer perfection Saturday night. Live said we don't joke about him. Because there's nothing funny. Funny about funny about him. He doesn't do anything that we can even joke about mean. It's not like the man introduced AG and called his wife's profession Oba gaining. He'll be gaining. Oh beginning. The best the best Russell triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three Anna padded leashed onto. On the means spreads of Helena. It's Pat gray on wings jubilee nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three on the phone or on Twitter. It's padded leashed. Some guy named Steve tweets. Trump could tweet the state of union that'd be kind of. Yeah. Keep it to a hundred forty characters to that would be nice. I think we're up to a little bit more than that now to to eighty okay? But he would be totally for that. He would love that Cooley drinker. I'd like to see the state of the union give him from the Oval Office and focused on how congress doesn't care about the people of this country. That would be yes Beal see to conservative. Hey, Pat, instead of holding a state of the union address, president should just hold us state of the union rally. Good old in Texas stadium. You know, he'd back that place. Also, just to muck at much tweets. Here's a fun. Fact Glenn mentioned Woodrow Wilson, Woodrow Wilson, thirty six minutes into show yesterday. And Pat just did the same today. That's interesting. I haven't. Interesting. During number to call that count for pet grade. Bingo, probably the second time. I said it. Yeah. I'd say does. Yeah. Pumpkin out today there buddy noticed. Oh, well Twitter. And then from the Twitter handle hamburger. He wrote. Budding two of our recent discussions how about state of the union address from the Oval Office with candidate laws and laughter. That would be fun. Actually, it would be good fellow Americans. The state of the union is great. Wait. You weren't supposed to. That I wasn't joking about that. It really is. No seriously. Shoot. It might be kind of fun after line. I know I know sadly, kind of is got boneheads like the CNN analyst calling David Webb. This. This is amazing. And we wanted to get to this yesterday. And I didn't but I got play this today because Areva Martin from CNN accused of FOX nation host, David Webb. He's on Sirius XM and FOX nation. Well, watch and see what she accuses him of his should not dare requirement here. Primary choir -ment, regardless of ethnicity, regardless of network, be that they are capable of covering politics. For instance, if you're going to cover political campaigns sports may not be the most qualified background, and that brings to the point of if people want to get into these fields, regardless of color, I've chosen across different parts of the media world done the work. So that I'm qualified to be in each one. I never considered my color the issue. I considered my qualifications the issue. You know that that's a whole nother long conversation about white privilege and things then you have the privilege of doing that people colored. Yeah, they'll have the how do I have white privilege David by virtue of being a white male? You have David there. I hate to break it to buy, but you should have been better prepped. I'm black. Okay. Went to white privilege. This is still foul soda in. This. You went immediately with an assumption. Thank you people, obviously. Or you didn't look you're talking to a black, man. Darted out in rock radio in Boston for us the path into hip-hop building one of the greatest black stations in American and went on to work for Fox News where I'm told apparently blacks art supposed to work right yet because of your privilege, and you go to white privilege, actually, insulting. Thank you. Because my people gave me wrong. It's amazing. They told me whole white privilege thing is can I apologize and correct. The record. I wanna apologize. I was given wrong information about you. Based on Mike you were going to something that I was part of and just to add to it. My family background is white black Indian Harrow wack irate Scottish. I mean, it's so diverse. I'm like the UN when it comes to this. And this is part of the problem with driving a narrative around a construct like white privilege. Thank you Rivoli ges. One thing we're applied wealth economy, various social factors, but not necessarily determined by color of skin. So there it is there. Anything more priceless than somebody who immediately plays the white privilege card. No matter what just automatically goes to if you've succeeded in this country. Well, yeah, that's that's about a whole nother conversation about your white privilege, my white privilege does that extend to black people to. It just shows the lunacy of it. And he had done all of those things at he's black that just destroyed her whole argument, despite the fact forget about the fact that she wasn't prepared for the interview. Who cares? The point is that she goes immediately to such a bogus argument. And he destroys it completely. Just by the fact that he's done all that. He said he's done. And she, you know, her thing about white privilege is will blacks can't do that. Because they don't have that privilege who's the racist there? I wonder. So you have to you have to be white in order to succeed like that you have to have privilege in order to succeed. Blacks can't do that. By the way. Aren't you a CNN analyst? Good heavens. I mean that is just. That's priceless. That is priceless stuff. And how do you? How do you go on somebody's show like that? And you know, she says why was given false information. Oh, you weren't. You weren't given. Any did? Somebody say, hey, David Webb is white guy. You're speaking with a white guy right now. No. She just assumed I'll bet you thousand dollars. Nobody told her David Webb was white. She just made that assumption. And because you can't succeed unless you're white. Right. According to her, I guess, isn't that the whole white privilege point that we that white people can get places to the nobody else can because we're just privileged it. Just happens. Things are just given to us because of her skin color, your listeners had some great responses to that yesterday on Twitter, Pat unleashed. Yeah. Peculiar baptist. What he say old and busted. Yes, ma'am. Highest honors new hotness. Eight to break it to you. But you should have been better prepped. I'm black. I love it. The highest degree thing though. I'm not sure that will ever be busted looking at going reverting into a depression at that point everyone. We're going into a depression your head. Do you have a degree in economics? Yes, ma'am. I do highest honors. So. Okay. So now, there's somebody who wasn't well prepped. Mere cat. Yeah. You realize this whole exchange, especially here response to the whole thing means his race is part of the prep hustle is that. Yeah, I don't know that it was. I don't believe it was nobody's going to say, hey, this is a black person. You're speaking to or this is a white person you have that ever happened. If you ever no I'm saying that she never she made the point that her staff hadn't prepared her that who she was talking to which means probably normally is a standard of reading procedure for them. Maybe right. I don't I don't know. Maybe I think she's just trying to play the blame on somebody else. Yeah. Because she's making faulty assumptions that shouldn't be made triple eight nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three desouza and Kentucky saying that. OB gyns is the way to say this. No come on.

And then he went to Chicago when he was in his mid to late twenties. So maybe he picked up then I don't know. I think we're giving him too much credit. I think he didn't know what he was talking about wouldn't be the first time as for sure. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three Mississippi man in declining health is now telling a cool story he's kept this secret from even from his own family for forty five years that he was abducted by aliens. Tell Calvin Parker says he and his buddy Charles Hickson were fishing in nineteen seventy three on the banks of the pascagoula river just north of where Ingalls shipyard now sits if you know where that is. I know you probably well aware of that I used to hang out there. When a real bright beam appeared all over us, and it kind of blinded me for a second. When I got my vision back I seen three bulky looking creatures coming toward us. Can I do a Jeffey jokers that not allowed anymore? I thought it was one of kind sorry. Sorry, continue Parker said the creatures would probably four four and a half five foot tall built like football players. But I noticed they kind of moved mechanical wise, and they was floating off the ground not they were floating. They was floating off the ground by the time we stood up and turned around. They was there on us all at one time. Two of them. Got a hold of Charlie one of them got a hold of myself and instantly. I felt like I just got relaxed. Rookie Parker was nineteen at the time. He claims in the forty two year old Hickson were levitated into a space craft. They were taking the Mars though, to become sex slaves that he there were just t- were given a space like a rectal exam a space rectal exam because he's our space OB gyns. He says this was an examination room. What I call it and the old big ugly creature his words, not mine. I would never refer to these people whether aliens. Yeah, the as ugly. I who might adjudge. I mean, you could not judge. You're you're you're you're dealing with. Read the story. Anyway, the big ole ugly creature that brought him in. Yeah. He took me and lead me on the examination table. And he just backed up out of the way, I couldn't move or anything all I could do was look device about the size of a deck of cards, then came down from the ceiling it hovered about a foot in front of my eyes. And then it went to the right side of my head, and it clicked with behind my head, and it clicked with to the left side of my head and clicked and then straight to the front and then shot back into the ceiling. Using like old school thirty five millimeter cameras aliens thought, they still have coda chrome chrome. Well, those coda chrome gives you the nice bright colors and the anyway, then a more feminine looking creature cave out. Oh, Sheila completely different than what I called the robot. She had regular fingers and came over and pinched me on the side of the cheek. And then she took her finger in ran it down my throat and got behind that thing that hangs down back there. Visit his great aunt. Cheat. What's going on here? And then tried to come up, my knees cavity. And that's when it started hurting. And I started choking. I got scared, and she was kind of telepathically told me they'll be afraid. We're not gonna hurt you. Did he tell tell her yard are hurting me? Your jamming your finger up, my knees passage. That's not that's not pleasant. Calvin Parker says he was abducted by these aliens in nineteen seventy three. So he's kept this all to himself all this time. Wow. Former Jackson county captain Glenn rider said he told them into come into the station to test their sincerity deputies secretly placed tape recorder into an interrogation room, and then left the two of them alone. There to listen to what they had to say interesting, then he says, I got to get home get to bed or get some nerve pills or something see the doctor something I can't stand it.

What happened? I know something happened. Well, yeah. Space OB gyns abducted you and gave you a rectal exam. Well in a nasal exam too. Which is interesting because I don't care for that stuff.

Thanks for taking my call. Yeah. Everybody's on the voice of curry. And I'm all for I'm all for technology. Yep. Especially at the ports of entry. Definitely. I think so that we can elaborate on that. And and my opinion, my two cents is you put up a chain link fence thirty foot wire. Technology. Yes. On the on our side. I go that you put her. So you put a solar field. A similar field. What what is a what is a solar field. What happens there? Perils? Okay charges. It charge the fence. Oh, you're talking about an electrified fence. Yes, sir. Okay. What are you guys doing or anyone from coming through its? Yeah. Look, then you're you're if you need a wall or a solid barrier in other areas, then you do that. Yeah. And you add technology to the ports of entry where apparently most of the drugs, and whatever are coming through according to the demos right that the hate-mongers. Yeah. So I think that would be a good alternative slowly would for shit. Thanks, joe. It would it would discourage climbing the fence that you will electrify it. They don't mess around PIN. Do they don't they don't. I don't know where that is those people mean business gay don't don't try to sneak into our area here in PIN or you'll be electrified. Now, see? The left would go absolutely ape crap over that. Because you know, you'd be obviously people would try to climb the fence and get hurt. But what about the wildlife the wildlife could happen into the fence and be killed? And then why you've got you've got the death of wildlife on your hands. And that is unacceptable. I mean, we've learned that habit. Just wonder around, you know, you don't they don't respect international boundaries. They'll they don't. So they're no respecter of national sovereignty.

Speaking speaking of the CNN analyst calling David Webb a white guy when he's a black guy St. points out. She also assumed David Webb identifies as a male really good point there.

For how more handle the situation inside the store with that, expletive filled outburst. A whole lot better. You think, but you know, what I look back at it change a thing. I would do one hundred thousand times again, I would kick over that. Again, because actions justified. No, it was it was blatant. It was blatant and malicious mischief littering porter KO be. I witness news for the day bleeding and malicious hate because this person who clearly looks like a man, but identifies as a woman, and has recently started the transition has not completed the transition. The voice is man. Like, do we have to pretend like reality isn't reality? No. That was not that was not justified. What you did kicking over displays yelling and screaming obscenities at the top of your lungs. You know, how you handle something like that? I'm actually a, ma'am. And you leave it alone. That'd be and then you walk out of the store. You don't you? Don't get all. I mean, that's lunacy. What was going on there? Screaming carrying on could.

Remember, Chris Hansen isn't Chris Hansen. The one used to do to catch a predator. That's the one on NBC. So Chris was arrested Monday not not trying to be a predator. A thirteen year old. No, fortunately, not no, he wrote bad checks to a vendor he owed money to oh, no checks bounced, wait a minute people still write checks. That's maybe the bigger story. Here is still writing checks have been in Dallas for seven years the checks that I have it's a combination of will I had so many. I'm also cheap in that. I also don't write many. I'm still using cheques with the address from New Jersey. Wow. Hansen turned himself into Stanford. Police in Connecticut after a warrant was issued for his arrest fell in charge of issuing a bad. Check. In the summer of two thousand seventeen Hanson, but about thirteen thousand dollars where the promotional items hats, t shirts, mugs, from a local company paid for them with a check and it bounced the owner in Hanson went back and forth for a while. And so Hanson finally gave the business owner another check and that went bounced to Chris what is happening, man. That's very sad. So he was what were these mugs and shirts for I mean. Well in two thousand fifteen he launched a kick started a fund the new show Hanson vs predator, a mugs and t shirts are listed as incentives for donating that didn't that apparently this going. Well, take minute Hanson editor no didn't really I don't know if it was going to be an internet thing, or or what Chris had in mind, but again, people still write checks now it's kind of interesting now, it's Hanson versus state of Connecticut fairly. There's a Russian hospital. That's a little bit redfaced after some photos of a make shift bed made of a aboard that is placed across chairs that that's a hospital bed right there. What do he want Russia in Russia? That's a hospital bed. Well, sure. I mean, you put a mattress on that. That's perfect. You're good to go. How it's triggered outrage on social media management of the healthcare facility where the pictures were taken said, it was a stopgap measure in response to a sudden increase in admissions. That's not normal procedure for this wonderful hospital. You're talking Russia here. You know, they've got first class service sauce. Sauce, cut them in a bed time. I'm sure that's all I'm sure the residuals of having communism every corner for over a century, communism equals equality. That's that's what it equals. Yeah. Everybody gets a bed like that. Everyone suffers equally they all do. Yes. So if you need to go to the hospital, you can count on a couple of chairs being set up with a board place between it don't don't under sell this, sir. A board five links several boys playing laid across that those chairs perfectly. Not a plank. Come on. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three and Pat unleashed on Twitter. By the way, on that on that attack that planned attack on the White House following the tip to thirties, the man's been arrested, and they're looking into whether or not he had anybody else that was helping him or behind the scenes with him or in his little group. And so far, they they don't they don't think there was a whole cell, but twenty one year old has shar Jalal to head of Cumming Georgia is in custody. Now, this is the guy who was going to take an anti-tank rocket and fired at the White House. And when they when they picked him up. They found drawings of the schematics for the for the what west wing. Apparently, he had some ins- information and was about to use it to really do a lot of damage. It's amazing because all of these people want to kill as many as many people as they can just amazing how you can become radicalized like that. And fortunately this person that he was speaking with in the beginning. And he went to him and thought that he was like minded, fortunately, he wasn't. And he called the FBI. And that's how they caught this guy. Anti-tank rockets. Yeah. Ebay or something, right? Is that what he was doing? I have no idea. I don't know where you get anti-tank rockets that I I don't want to advertise where you get anti-tank rockets either Craigslist Craigslist. Yeah. Yeah. Or overstock, maybe you can get two day shipping. Amazon. Anti-tank rocket furniture store that's always advertising on TV furniture mart. Now, it's the kid even think maybe there. I don't know. Fortunately, they found this guy. Can you imagine what kind of carnage? There could have been because his plan was to kill his many people as you possibly couldn't do as much damage to the White House and surrounding area as. Really bad. So a big tragedy. Verd- we don't know how many times that's happened since nine eleven because a lot of that stuff is classified triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three.

The no confidence vote yesterday day after her breakfast. The Brexit plan suffered the worst parliamentary defeat in modern British political history. They also then did a no confidence vote because they were trying to bring down her government. And she she survived. It. So the no confidence vote was brought by labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn and Germany Corbin lost three twenty five to three. Oh, six. So it was pretty close. Yeah. This is in the hills of hurry close that other vote to stop Brexit was the worst margin of defeat for British Prime in modern history. Yeah. So where do you go? Now, the parliament votes already voted on her Brexit Bill. So we don't know that failed the parliament intervened the no-confidence vote didn't work. So now there might be. Here's the here's the possibilities. There could be a second referendum. Meaning they go back to the people again and have them revote on leaving the EU. Well, how would you be? If that's you already won that battle. The people have already spoken, you're gonna make us do it. Again, would totally pass again, probably bigger margin. Now that people are angry. So so there's that possibility or there's a possibility that may that Theresa May works with labor party, and they work out some way to extract themselves from Brexit. That's agreeable to everybody or the lawmakers just take over and do whatever they do. I don't know what they would do. Maybe they just leave the EU without a deal, and you try to make a deal with the United States. And leave the rest of it to to Europe. All right. We'll we'll do without you. You do without us. Let's see how that works. I don't know. It's it's tough. And then to defy the will of the people. And make it look like. Yeah. We're just going nor what you want. That's that's kind of a problem. I'm thinking at this stage. That's kind of the problem with with what we have to have to deal with here, and what Great Britain is dealing with their. They just don't care what the people want. Exactly what's happening with the wall. But you know, secure the stink in border. Will you please? By all that is holy just finally secure the border and enforce our laws. That's all we're asking for that too much to ask. Well, yes, it is. Yes. It is. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three, let's go to Doris in Virginia, Doris. You're on the blaze. We we have a line one there. Hey, doris. Hi. Hey, welcome. I just have a comment. Yes. Ma'am. In the game. Stop store if the reaction was that for being called ma'am for return the Suns game, what's the reaction when the sun calls, dad? Right. I hope the sun doesn't because all hell would break loose. I'm shooter. Thank stores. Can you imagine that how difficult that would be to if your, you know, your whole life? That's been your dad. And now, he's she your mom. I guess, but you already have a mom. So then what do you call the dead that used to be your dad, and now is the woman. I don't know. I don't know, that's too complicated. For me. I don't have any idea. Just incredible. Where we find ourselves right now. Isn't it? No wonder people spend nearly half their waking hours looking screens. We're just trying to escape the real world for all the studies that tell us how important it is to limit screen time. Kind of people aren't doing that. Is what seems to be happening? Forty two percent of the time Americans are awake. There is fixated on a TV screen, smartphone, computer, tablet, or other device. I would think it would be a higher percentage in that supposing the average American slept eight hours a night, not even close for most of us. The researchers calculated that people's fit about six hours and forty three minutes a day staring at a screen. Wow. Over a typical lifespan, you know, how long that is twenty one point eight years almost twenty two years looking at a screen. Sure. Those numbers those numbers are higher for teenagers. They've got to be the because teenagers never look up. They're always doing their thumbs. And looking at the screen. I'm sure you have interesting story that you've been reading over there. I'm just a little busy get your screen doing just catching up on a fruit ninja for the day. Here's a great screen to look at. I know you don't have Keith since you're continually whining about the team. What do you have a forty three inch screen or something forty? I don't know. Try this new Samsung on for size doing this to me. This. This is the Samsung TV called the wall. It's a wall. That's already been built how big is two hundred and nineteen inches. This has already been built. And it is not immoral. The most moral thing I've ever seen in my life. This. Wow. Colors. It takes up the whole wall. Which is why it's called. I wanna watch football on them right now. Right now. All right. Can turn it down. So you see the size of the wall that this TV is on. I mean, it takes up a whole the whole side of the house and the screen is almost the same size. That is unbelievable two hundred nineteen inches. That's like that's like a theater screen at a, you know, at a cinema at a Cinemark AMC. I think that's about the size of those things are it's that's crazy. That's amazing senior. Well, let's see a twenty foot screen. It'd be son of screens are usually between twenty and fifty feet wide. Okay. So so it's pretty close. That's pretty close to the low end of that. Wow. And you know, the colors are so vivid and just absolutely beautiful picture. I I'm gonna ask this. I'm going to have to ask my wife for this. Now thinking of asking now, the seventy five inch one that we have in my bedroom. Looks like a like. Hate you point. You had enough TV? Told that story where I was always kidding with. We need a bigger TV. I wanted eighty inch TV in in the bedroom sling at getting getting. Big tonight. Sorry. No, I need we need a an eighty inch TV and then a couple of Christmases go. She bought me almost eighty inch DV seventy five. It's just I mean, it's ridiculously big story. And then this is what two and a half times the size two and a half times the size the hundred forty six version of this is one hundred grand. Whoa. So while really mean, so what's the to nineteen version? A hundred thousand one hundred forty six inches hundred thousand. Yeah. That's a while. I don't have the price of big boy the to nineteen but. Under. Hundreds, you know, maybe get one on black Friday for you know. Yep. Sorry fifty. That's. That's not gonna work with your Kohl's cash. Probably. No, no. I don't. I don't know that. I I do know that I don't have a wall big big. No, that's yeah. Think about that too. Because you're not gonna just hang that above the fireplace. That's. And you're going to have to think of like, what do you what do you put into the drywall to hold that thing up? Wow. And you have to figure it's probably one hundred and fifty thousand then right? If one hundred forty six I'm thinking, it's probably too. I don't know. It might be might be might be two hundred. My goodness. I'm willing to build an extra wall into my house for that thing. It's beautiful though. It'd be fun to have. But at that price that kind of eliminates well almost all of us. President can get one for the White House. Maybe that guy can still mansion in California we had on yesterday. And all yeah. By that TV, right? Starting to get what thirty six million for it. Sure. I'm sure he's gonna clear with a check of a hundred grand right sold. EV? Speaking of checks, maybe Chris Hansen buys it. One of his bouncing, Chris Hanson? Yeah. He doesn't seem to have any problems writing checks. He can't back up. So why not why not do that one? Least you get the TV in your house for a few minutes before they come in and repossess it. Right. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three tomorrow is more on trivia day. As tomorrow is Los Angeles Rams versus New Orleans Saints and the world's home team, Jerry. They are.

Mcdavid will good morning. Everybody you're listening to the voice komo digman now. What it only steve. Harvey got a radio. Show here we go today. I think i have something for a lot of people today. At least i hope. I do and this is about on your journey and this is about something that happens to us. All i mean what happens to all of us from time to time when we get discouraged. What happens to all of us when we feel like quitting. What happens to all of us when we have that. Turn back moment. What happens to all of us would. It don't seem like it's going to pan out. Because i want you to understand something that everyone. Every single living soul has those thoughts about something at some point in their life. I mean you know look. I've often times been discouraged about things not happening as fast as i'd like them or things don't pan out the way i would like for them to have panned out. I mean it's so many ways to get discouraged but what but what my encouragement to you is when discouragment comes is understand this it is a part of the growth process. It is a test. It is a test of your faith. How bad you want it. Do you really believe. That's that's all. Faith is is simply. I've said this. How many times faith to believe in things that you cannot see. So when discouragement comes setbacks comes it is a test of your faith at least has been that way for me now. Other people can explain it another way. I'm not other people. I can only give it to you the way it's come to throughout my life and man. Oh man oh man discouragement. Sometimes it's tough to deal with because it's seems at times when you're discouraged. That is so absolute that this means the end and if you allow it to set in it can be just at the end of you when merely millie. It was a test. That's all is but the majority of people that i know who are not successful. Oh who. I've told me. The story of how they gave up is was because at a moment of discouraged that they allowed to set in and it became so in engulfing that it became the reason why you shouldn't finish and then they started justifying. Hit one that. I hate to hit. Well if it's god's will excuse me. If it's god's will that you fail if it's god's will the chew not successful. If it's god's will that you lay down and give up. It's god's will that you allow yourself to a mountain not to not reach your pick up potential. That's god's will. That's not the god. I know that's not the god i serve us not to god i've read about. That's not the god i believe in. I'm sorry i just want. My mother always taught me something that he didn't bring me his father. Leave me. i just don't believe that not for a second now. Have i convinced myself cellphone. Some things yup have allowed the devil come into the pitch in paint a different from yup yup. I've done all of that but you can't blame that on god. Now come on so when when discouragment comes. Try to look at it if you can as a test of your faith and you really have to pass the test. It could be for a day a half a day a few hours a week. A few weeks it don't matter don't nobody know how long the test period is. Your job is to keep the faith and keep moving. Keep the faith and keep moving. keep working keep believing. Keep hope alive. That's your job if you do that. That's how you pass the test. It could be over tomorrow. It could be over in two weeks. It could be over in a month. You don't know but all you got to do is wake up and keep the faith and fight the discouraging feelings and how do you do esti. Now he would go. This is the part. I know about the show because how many times i've had to fight off discouragment in order to get to where i me to be. What do you do when you become discouraged. Well i think of the outcome. When i get discouraged about a task i think about the outcome man. What would it be. Like if i were to complete the task. What would it be like man. What would the outcome be for me if i hung owning their. If i didn't give up. If i if i if i imagine i imagine if i don't quit i imagine if i don't give up what would it be like man. Suppose everything. I'm hoping for comes true but if i don't quit and give up that might just be the case. I start talking to myself like that. I think of what the upside is. What's the upside to stay in with it. You see all this is the same thing. I'm just giving you different ways to look. I'm saying the exact same thing over and over. But i'm just trying to find the switch that connects in your mind where you can say. Okay man i'm oh hang in there because if you think of the outcome and outcome is appealing to you if you imagine what it would be like. Don't give up or you don't quit if you if you think only of what. The upside is to stay with it. And then i go. Where can this lead to. If i stay with it man and the outcome comes true. What else could that lead me to. Because there's always more to it so wet where else could lead me to. What are the possibilities man. What are the limitless possibilities. What could god possibly have in store for me. If i just hang in there if i passed this test of faith if i just passed this test then ain't going to be the only one but you gotta get past this one. No then you go hit a smooth plane. Then it's going to be another one is going to be another one life a none but a series of tests man man when you think about giving up when you discourage think of the outcome imagine what it would be like if you don't quit if you don't give up. What's the upside to stay in with it. Where can this all leads to. What what can this get you to if the if you do this and you get to where you think you want to be. Oh my god. What's after that. What other limitless and endless possibilities of holding onto your faith what could really be out there for me man. If i just passed this test you gotta talk yourself in hanging in there.

A federal judge has dismissed the trump lawsuit in pennsylvania invalidating millions of votes judge even scolded rudy giuliani and trump's other campaign lawyers for not presenting any facts to back up their arguments both pennsylvania and michigan scheduled to certify the vote. Count sometime today. Meanwhile the more and more republicans urging down trump to bow out gracefully for the good of the party a group of former homeland security officials feel that way. Elizabeth newman is a former assistant secretary for counter terrorism rationally. Explain that he has lost and and it's okay to excite about that the violence is not the answer newman tells. Abc that she's afraid that trump supporters could turn violent if republican leaders. Don't speak out and there have been some threats to that To that to that in actually one person by the way voted out of office election day in call with cover. This was that georgia district attorney. Who initially oversaw. The case of the black jogger amish arbery and who's under investigation for seeming to avoid charging arbery is alleged killers. Da jackie johnson. Who was white was turned out of office by the voters and by a sizable margin of sixty sticks to only thirty four percent. Lebron james is what i want to talk about. Lebron james does so much for the community and now it's time for us to do something for him. King james says somebody he considers. Family was murdered this past weekend in his hometown of akron ohio. He says the killer or killers are still out there. His best friend sister was found. Shot to death in her bedroom on monday.

There'll be no legal reckoning in the tamir rice case at least not right now apparently under william bar the man president trump has picked to run the justice department. Apparently they said they left the way that the case just drop. They haven't had determination about who should pay for the shooting.

Is scroll boever ladder the subject. How should i approach the pastor's wife. All right dear. Stephen shirley an entanglement with this pastor. That i met eight months ago. My office shared a parking lot with his church and he always greeted me with hello brown sugar. I eventually told him my name because he's married. And i did not want to appear to be flirting with a married man. And a man of god. I didn't entertain him at first but then he found me on social media and he started in boxing. Me telling me how lovely i am and how good i smell when i pass by him. I told him about himself and he apologized for making me uncomfortable but he said he still wanted to keep in touch if it was okay. I told him it was fine. Even though i knew a married man should not be in boxing. Me at all. We kept on sending messages to each other and eventually he started calling me. He's twenty years twenty three years my senior and his wisdom and worldly knowledge had me hook so we started sneaking out on dates on the other side of town. Now we meet up for sex a lot and it's so good to be with an older man that knows how to please me. Listen to this line very carefully. We've grown into a very deep relationship and he strengthened my prayer life. I've tried to leave him and he tells me that he might be the men. Of god's the mike the men got sent to me and i shouldn't question god. It's very confusing. And now he's paying most of my bills. It's harder to walk away from him. I can't help but think of his wife. So i've been praying about leaving her husband for good and confessing my sin to her. How do you think. I should approach the pastor's wife okay. Please don't do that please. I mean you're a young woman You say he's twenty three years or singer but please do not tell. Why don't do the excuse me the first lady. She's going to be devastated. And it will probably go not the way you think it's going to go. Please don't do that She doesn't want to find this out from you. We're all adults here. You know right from wrong. There's so much wrong with this letter. That i hardly know where to begin. But i'll start at the crazy place for me. this was just crazy to me which is and i quote. We've grown into a very deep relationship and he strengthened my prayer life. How does that sound to you. I mean it. Yeah i mean. Needless to say it's always good to strengthen your prayer life but with the married pastor. You're sleeping with i. Don't think so Do you honestly think. God is pleased with this. Or he's going to be pleased with this. I mean this man again is twenty three years your senior so he tells you things like you know like he might be. The man got sent to you on all of that yes. That's confusing. Because he is a man of god so no don't let it confuse you. Don't please. don't let them play you like that. You know this isn't right. If you're gonna pray about anything. Please continue praying about leaving him. And then leave him. And think about getting your life together without this pastor who you shouldn't be sleeping with and who most definitely shouldn't be sleeping with you entanglement get unintended angled with this guy. All right steve. What are these. Let us come from from listeners. How should i approach to pass. Is what what what you approach and say what. I've been in an in a tangle with this pastor that i met eight months ago. Here's another question. This term that everybody uses now entanglement entanglement. Listen to me. Stop trying to give cute names to ugly situation one more time. One more trying to give the toot names to ugly situation. You're having an affair. Sale would passed s married. That ain't in tangle. Mid that's an affair or adultery is a whole lot of stuff it's not an entanglement anybody got you twisted up. All this is volatile. He gave me see you. Hey brown sugar now you know you supposed to be getting hit on by no man man and you want to be flirting with a married man. Y'all share the same parking lot. What y'all shared a partner. That's how i got started. That's how he ain't entertainment. I any final social media started in boxing. You tell him how lovely i'm good. I smell when i pass by got you. i'll be back it out because some news. All right steve. Part two of your response coming up at twenty three minutes after. How should i approach the pastor's wife. We'll get back into it when we come back right after this. You're listening to morning. Show all right. Steve come on. Let's recap today strawberry letter subject. How should i approach the pastor's wife. This woman is dayton married man who happens to be a passed. She was telling us how they met. The church shares a parking lot with they office and every time he passed by he say hello brown sugar and she thought that says a married man shouldn't be hidden on. She would ignore it at first and then he found on social media started. Dm enough now. She says that she's been in this entanglement which is man fade most. This is the new term that they've come up with israel sounds interesting isn't an entanglement Y'all having a fan somebody going to. That's what you see is a man y'all having affairs somebody going to heal. Okay cool okay. Now let's go. I didn't entertainment i e find. Your social media started barking tenure. I love you were knew how you smell when you pass. I told him about himself and he apologized for making me feel uncomfortable but he said he still wanted to keep in touch if it was okay. I told him it was fine. You know even though. She says she knew a married man. Should not be in boxing. Me at all and it kept on sending messages each other and eventually he started calling they twenty two years older than this late in his wisdom and wurley knowledge that me who rarely knowledge that's called game lady as called game yes it. Is that a wisdom world and knowledge. That's called games. The older you get the more of a you acquire is called game started sneaking out on dates on the other side of town by his here with me but my mind is all the other side note mission meal a multi by ma. I said i sent my body's he you but my mind is only. You will miss all right. So y'all started sneaking out on the other side of town now we meet up for sex a lot quite a lot is so good to be with an older man. That knows how to please me. Yeah i keep telling ya is the only you get you going to gain some knowledge experience gain. You gotta house stuff to match your game. I they got it here. We go again now. We've grown into very deep relationship and he's strengthened my prayer life. How has this strengthen your prayer life help me is because now you in a situation you got you talking to god more than you ever have before because you got your seven hundred situation you'll know outta hand how well i understand. Sometimes it take people go to prison to find god So maybe just for you. Strengthen your pran life okay. Let's just take look at that. Let's see how this go. I've tried to leave him. He tells me that he he'll go to other line that he might be the man. God symptom me. And i shouldn't question god the mashed something so what he was sent by god to do what i'm just ask you. He was sit by god to do what that don't make no says i've tried to leave. Retails me that he might be key. Word might be the man. Thank god sit to me. And i shouldn't question god what. It's very confusing. And so now he's paying most of my bills all can okay. So now you kept okay. So now he pay most. you'll build. That probably would church money not be offering going to come from somewhere. I can't help but think his wife. I think of his wife so i've been praying about leaving her husband for good and confessing my scenes too. So you need you need. You need to go to church. 'cause god voice has no cnn. And so god ain't nobody we're seeing on your behalf and then next thing right now when you confess your sense to hook she a ga. What did you confessing. you'll see her for. And how do you think. I should approach. The passes very gently because hashers wives put people asked to more times pastors wives. People ask to don't mess around it gets you would end of my. I know see. I mean really. That's all you can tell her don't do that. She's young but yeah you gotta grow up fashion brown people things right here so you gotta know what to do. And that's nothing they would do. Just leave him all right. It doesn't make any sense lady. what are you doing. You've known it was wrong. Kid co all right. We gotta go steve. Thank you coming up next sports.

Do you wait until after the holidays or do you get out before having to hang out with their family. So thanksgiving might be more high stakes at the time of kobe but It's probably the safest holiday break up close to so here. Is the question between thanksgiving. Christmas and new year's is there and is there any good time to split up. Yeah why am i looking at you me you know. Why we're you supposed to start breaking up around halloween. The week of right now though thanksgiving so now we're then you might want to break to day of this morning could day break up to date and ride that all the way to like mid january but does the to do this day and you can just come up with them whole argument. This just just don anything. No matter what who the hell put water taller. How does it how to talk. How wanna get taught. I don't say who who who watering the talk. That's all i wanna know. That's an argument. Hogan had argument fan will open denver. Cutlass it's why. Why do you say that. 'cause you ain't got to see the person you could just zoom link at the same room you ain't got no occasionally occasionally and stuff you get and then when he gets away you don't wanna use zoom out eighty nine and you know and just take all of that. You ought to go zoom. I'm a proponent breaking up around thanksgiving does that's the ideal time because normally you don't like her. Yeah thanksgiving his best time but because you don't like her she probably jedi like her family. So i'm pretty sure i don't need to sit around all either people house. Eating people usually have cannot say why. Wait to thanksgiving because if you wait to you giving people hope with no one you don't need to give them hope that laws but see. Sometimes they don't happen that way. And i'm just saying as each holiday approaches. You got to have a player because maybe nothing was wrong halloween. You know maybe maybe lost it. You know you know know. You ain't going to be able to fix that by thanksgiving. If she goes it you on november ten now she bust you like december fifth. You got to get out now for your dog going shopping. Be all been there at that table at macy's looking at all that stuff on admit allowed to for one and all you got to go through. That definitely got a new year's eve get here because you can do year with high. Does his ads on his ass. And again you start argument. Maybe over politics not comment to talk to. You can just like trump and that's why you're wrong accuser. Vote for trump daily. Yeah yes are you on no matter what she does no matter what he or she does you go. That's it that's it right there. it's over it. Keep them guessing about what did you mean that's it. Can you pass me remote like to change the channel mo you after the turn into atlanta housewife. That's wow known for breaking up before the holidays though. Oh yeah yeah all right. We'll have more of the see barbie morning show and trending stories coming up at twenty minutes after the hour right after this. You're listening to morning show. Tell me something good.

Warnock and jon ossoff okay. We took them to washington. Guess and the reason we need to do this. You all is very very simple This president after spewing lie after lie after lie and i don't know how these followers have just discredited to truth to the point where it doesn't matter. They just allow him to get away with it but what he's been doing of late says he lost election having to michigan aw. Gop elect elect election officials. Come to the white house to talk to him. He wants to talk to him. See if he can find something. They've told him. There is nothing so now. He's trying to demand another recount in the state of georgia and he just keeps trying to find something he can hang his head on and what he's doing and everybody starting to say it he's trying to discredit the black vote. Donald trump now the one who's the most least racist person you've ever met donald trump the one who says he's done more for african americans than any president since abraham lincoln disguised right here. This the one. I'm talking to you about he now. Wants to discredit the black vote that he wasn counting on doing what the black vote did to him this election. They did not know the movement of stacey. Abrams and how she has been working for years behind the scenes registering voters. Lindsey graham and mitch. Mcconnell said they find it difficult to believe that more people voted for joe biden than barack obama. What they were saying in code was because it came down to milwaukee wisconsin detroit in michigan atlanta area in georgia and philadelphia area in philly. What he was saying was he couldn't believe that more black people turn out and voted for joe biden then voted for president obama. Here's what they don't know. Is there more of us are registered to vote now. then were registered to vote. When president obama took office over twelve years ago it was just more of us registered. And i'll tell you something else about black people that you don't know we turned out for president obama because we wanted to see a change. We turn out for president obama because we knew it would make history. We wanted to. We wanted to see ourselves the way you've been allowed to see through the history of this country we want to see ourself in the highest office in the land. We wanted to be able to point this out to our children and grandchildren. But let me tell you why we came out in this election. Mr president and everybody listened. Officials came figured out. See y'all got it wrong about black people. And i'm not a spokesman for black people but i do know how we feel because i've been one sixty three years matter of fact the entire time i've been alive i bill one so i know what i'm talking about. We don't want you to do nothing for us. But we do want you to stop doing what you've been doing to us. And we turned out in large numbers because we sick of your racism. We sick of your social injustice. We sick of your system. Systemic racism we sick of your police. Brutality we're sick of your reds zoning laws we're sick of you saying over and over and over that black lives don't matter even when we keep pleading with you to see our lives the same as yours but you soheil bit being righteous that you can't even see what we say when we say black lives matter you so busy telling us that white lives matter that all lives matter that blue lives matter that you're missing the whole point of what we keep been screaming to you about black lives. Matter is not a either all. We don't care all lives matter. We got no problem with police lives matter matter of fact we get along with white america news flash. Another news flash. We built america news flash so with all of our contributions to america. We want our lives matter just like everybody else's lives matter. That's what we want. But since you don't think black lives matter how 'bout this damn vote now. Though i bet yo ass understand us a little bit better now. I bet you can't play us the next election. Play us no more because we prove something to you. You don't think black lives matter. How about these day votes matter. Because of your refusal to say anything calming to the forces of black lives matter black votes now matted in detroit in atlanta in philly in milwaukee to the point where you sir you out of office now and i got one mo parting gift for you to take which we let you leave and cindy's too damn senate seats which you this is my parting gift and partying prayer to donald trump.

Good morning it's great to be with you again Definitely ready for the New Year because the the New Year is going to be even more exciting more volatile than we've even seen in the past so so Get ready for twenty twenty. We'll be historic year. We'll let be impeachment to well. They've the Democrats are really put themselves in a tough box. Because it's so weak and they're running against the president who who is a historic president. That still upset about two thousand sixteen when we want and that election and You know it was supposed to be Hillary Clinton Lock and you now. Now you're seeing the stories that You know this this whole thing with the dossier and other things where the sources of these things would that were used to spy on the trump campaign got a lotta people upset. But I'll tell you what we just did. A national survey that we release last week. Where when we asked the majority of voters in two thousand voters across the country should president is in trump continue to fight to change Washington? The majority said yes. Fifty to thirty nine Where we ask them that? Trump's like a bull in China shop where he you know breaks. Thanks a lot of old ideas doesn't care but he's changing Washington shaking things up. The majority Americans agree fifty seven to thirty five and they like that and at at the same time we ask them. Do you agree. Disagree that the impeachment hearings are a waste of time and the Democrats are GonNa vote to impeach him and the Senate Republicans are GonNa vote to keep. I'm an office no matter what you know. Wake me when it's over. and the majority of Americans agreed with that sixty six to twenty six so the Democrats have nowhere to go on this because they've have created a situation where even though they've impeach the president and they haven't moved the articles yet but they've impeach them And he's only the third our president in history to be impeached. His poll numbers are going up even the biased left wing media polls that undercount Republicans have the president's job approval going up and they have sentiment against impeachment moving up because the majority of Americans think this is going nowhere. They think it's a total waste of time so as we begin the year. You're in that kind of a situation. Where the president is trying to move out and get things done and the Democrats ironically to end the year? They you know decide that they're gonNA pass his treaty with Mexico Mexico and North and and Canada and they've got a You know they were doing things to help them lower prescription drugs. I mean the Democrats. They don't WanNa be accused of focused on impeachment only because they've got thirty Democrats at risk in districts that the President Karen Twenty sixteen that he's likely to carry again and so So it's going to be a historic volatile interesting year and the Democrat primaries are about to kick in interest you you handle cockle apple international clients to you handle Israel. I worked for Prime Minister Netanyahu for fifteen years. Now are the same type of people going after the Netanyahu as as going after trump we talked about this last time that we were On the program where you have these foundations etc that Push left wing ideas around the country like the United States. You have the Open Society Foundation and over in Israel You had Obama supporters orders Funding the campaign against bb when they had super pacs when they were allowed in twenty fifteen. So you definitely have left to center. People who like George Soros is very well known internationally for for funding open borders and other things and the United States is getting known because dared jerod. They're pushing these criminal justice reform where New York New York state you have is in years. GonNa Start with cash bail and you're GONNA have this release program that if you if is law enforcement doesn't bring charges if fifteen days they're gonNa let criminals go so so you have the same kind of leftist center things and what's interesting is we just saw an election in the united. Hi To kingdom where the Conservatives won with Boris Johnson and they beat a socialist recording and in the United States is no coincidence that one of the leaders of the Democrat Party now is Bernie Sanders and Bernie Sanders could be the one who actually wins the nomination because there is a socialist primary going on within the Democrat primary primary and then you have a contest for the moderates where you have Buddha judge in that and you have Biden in that and you have You know maybe clover shore and Bloomberg giving himself a pass until basically march third so you could have a once Bernie Sanders tops. Elizabeth Warren Iowa and New Hampshire. You can have a sanders Bloomberg face off in the march third Super Tuesday primaries for the heart and soul of the Democrat Party. Whether it's going to be a Socialist Party or it's going to be you know somewhat of a moderate party and you know Biden's collapsing is Bloomberg picks up steam gene. And you can have that face off in In March and during the month the march where going into April where if Sanders Bee's Bloomberg. Org You'RE GONNA see a big split in the Democrat Party and They'll be going off to the left and you could. Even you know I mean Bloomberg's give running a third party candidacy but That's GONNA trade an election dynamic where we will have a historic level of turnout. Where last time in two thousand sixteen hundred hundred thirty nine I million Americans vote this time one hundred and fifty upwards to maybe a hundred and sixty million Americans vote and if it's a sanders Trump battle trump win more decisively than he did last time. So So that's that's GONNA create for pretty volatile year and pretty exciting start to the a year. It seems like Joe Biden his Teflon is that Teflon wearing. which you're you're there you you you have a pretty close your ears close onto the pavement? Well if you go back and you look at the polls Biden's best day was the day he announced and like national polls and and granted. It's not a national primary Mary but in the national polls he's been slipping and he. He may still be the front runner but he's not in the thirties and he's into he's into the twenties where he's definitely not destroys was and ironically on the other side. Trump has gone even stronger where you know. I mean he's left with William Weld and and this Guy Joe Walsh and and nobody else has taken them on. So trump is is getting between eighty ninety percent of the Republicans support in a Republican primary while on the Democrat side we we had nationally. We had Biden only twenty three percent sanders at seventeen warranty fifteen Hillary Clinton we throw her name she got six and Bloomberg I five birger got five. So they're volatile primary and he's been slipping and when you look at the liberal wing of the party. Sanders is actually ahead among Liberal Democrats. Twenty one with with Warner twenty and biden third at seventeen and the early states. Like Iowa and you've got New Hampshire Biden's not ahead so Biden's losing those polls Buddha judges ahead by a little in Iowa but it's really close between him and sanders warn and then You've got Same going on New Hampshire and what will happen is because New Hampshire is eight days behind Iowa whomever wins Iowa will get a bounce going into New Hampshire so if It's sanders those better than expected. He could end up winning New Hampshire right after Iowa so And that would set up the contest. Where although Bloomberg's not running in early states he has the money where he's GonNa spend he'll spend it he could spend a billion dollars and he'll be running ads all over the country trying to win those Super Tuesday? Say Much alert you know. It's two days from New Year's anything else. You want to tell the American public. I think people have to stay engaged. Engaged to pay attention to the issues and look at the facts. Because the one thing that's going on with the united in the United States is that the mainstream media is become a wing of the Democrat Party where they really don't report all the facts and people see they see that we've got the lowest unemployment and the president's created over seven million new jobs since he took office Main Street and Wall Street about doing well under this president so the economy continues to grow in spite of the liberal well. Democrats spent and at the same time. America's stronger where the president is keeping a stronger. Disengaging us from these. These long-term police actions so America's being stronger and more secure. And when you look at the facts that's what will don Donald trump reelected because of his record. And when you put away the spin You'll see that that. That's that's where Americans are focused on. They may not like a style but they do like the fact that he's a tough guy and he's making changes in Washington and they like that Almost what we call the Frank Produce Strategy where the took a tough guy to make a tender chicken. It takes tough Donald Trump to change Washington. That's what the American people want. Well on that note. I want to say Happy New Year. And and hopefully the new year's better for all Americans happy New Year it will be it it will can. It will continue to be thank you John. Thank you for the opportunity of seeing the new year tactics This is a catch mount table. John Tests Matiz thank you.

Coronavirus: The Experts vs. The White House

"Hello everyone I'm ZAC. Wolf a senior writer. Cnn and this is the daily DC. We will take a one day break. However from electoral politics to focus on corona virus today the worldwide outbreak. It has alarmed public health officials and threatens to cripple the world economy there are as of this taping sixty two cases in the United States. These include forty four people who were aboard the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship. Three people repatriated from China and fifteen cases. That just came in the United States to new cases were reported Friday. Among the diamond princess passengers that makes a total of two hundred eighty five individuals from that diamond princess line who are currently under quarantine in the United States according to the CDC's website worldwide. There have been more than twenty eight hundred deaths and eighty three thousand cases of the corona virus. There are fears that the everyday effects of this outbreak. Which have already hit so much of Asia. In Japan. The government has voted to close all schools that those will start to migrate to the US. So I have the perfect guests to go into the story with me. Elizabeth Cohen is a senior medical correspondent for CNN. She's down in Atlanta and John. Harwood is a CNN wight house reporter. He's over at the White House right now to talk about the government response. Thank you both for joining me. Thank you Elizabeth. I'll go to you first. What do we know right now about this disease is it? Is it waning at this point or is it still gaining steam or do we just not know what it's doing? Oh I think it appears for sure that it is gaining This is going to get worse before it gets better. That's what the CDC seems. Be telling us that's what infectious disease experts. Tell us how bad it will get is yet to be seen. But it's going to get worse before it gets better so you've been on CNN a lot talking about all of this right. Now you're on a politics podcast and in case you hadn't you know the folks out there hadn't noticed we're in the middle of a presidential primary. Super Tuesday The biggest date of the primary season is on Tuesday South Carolina is on Saturday. The primary there do people need to be nervous about going out in public in the US. Right now oh I don't think so. I mean I wouldn't advise anyone to be nervous about that. I think we have to do. Is All the things that you do during flu. Season to keep yourself safe if you see someone sick. Stay very far away from them. Wash your hands is you always should Keep Your House clean as you as you always should sneeze into your inner elbow as you always should It's I think the infectious disease doctors. Tell me that in their heads. They're thinking about this like flu that there are many similarities between flew in this novel Corona Virus. And so anything that you would do during flu season. You should be doing now and you know everyone's different. I think decisions that people are GonNa make for example about travel to Europe. Let's say would be different? If it's too healthy people going versus someone taking their elderly mother with them who maybe has underlying health conditions. Different people are gonNA make different decisions. I you know and to that point I guess maybe California is probably happier than ever that they've moved towards a vote by mail system Instead of putting people In in in contact with each other. And let's hope all the the League of women voters volunteers out there all have plenty of The you know hand wash out there for all the folks now John. You pay a lot of attention to to markets and you're covering the White House. Let's look at this at a kind of a more macro level Don. Donald Trump Once he he's trying to have kind of two things happen here number one. He wants people to be calm about this. And he also doesn't want to rattle markets and it seems like the way he's handled this so far. Neither of those things seem to be happening for him. Well as a political and economic and market matter. It's plain that the administration's response has not been successful That doesn't mean that it has not been successful in the main in terms of the public. Health risk Because as was said this is something that if you treat it like the flu In an abundance of caution that you can minimize the spread. It's it is more lethal than the flu At least based on what we know so far but not lethal in the way that Ebola was for example or SARS or Merce But the way the When the market fell on Monday and Tuesday the president and his aides initially adopted a kind of Blythe. Tone saying Well does it buying opportunity for investors stocks cheap? Well it's kept going down steadily since then and when the administration had its news conference on Wednesday evening attempting to reassure the public stock futures went down during the press conference. And that's partly because the president has not had a clear message about the situation. He sort of equivocated on how much money we need to respond to it. On how lethal it is whether it's going to go away on. Its own or not on whether Community spread of this virus is going to happen or not. He's contradicted some of his health professionals at the CDC people like Anthony Fauci So that's been the problem from the administration point of view and I think over a number of weeks going forward we'll see whether from the public health aspect It is more successful. Get it looks right. Now which will in turn have a knock off affective calming investors and coming in the markets not only has trump contradicted people like Anthony Fauci but it also appears from our reporting out of the White House. That they're essentially going to clamp down Maybe that's the wrong word. But at least coordinate the messaging through. Vice President Mike Pence Somebody WHO's Record as a as a public. Health advocate is spotty at best He was in Indiana You know governor the no when there was an HIV outbreak there and his actions or lack thereof are credited with potentially not You know helping get that under control as quickly as possible now. This is a strange way to pivot. Yesterday I spent a lot of time because these are the strange kind of things I do looking at previous flu outbreaks. And there is of course the one thousand nine Hundred Nineteen. Spanish flu pandemic although Some people think that the Spanish actually started here in the US According to what I was reading yesterday it killed tens of millions of people worldwide. That is like the worst possible case scenario for something like this and I was reading this Element by John Berry. Who wrote a book about this? And his argument was that the Spanish flu was made much worse because public health officials and the government at the time. Were misleading people. They were trying to be They were projecting a lot of happy talk. They were saying you don't need to be as worried about this. I'm not saying that's what's going on right here but I do think An Elizabeth. I'm interested to get your take on this. How important is it that people trust the government in these kinds of scenarios? I mean trust is so so important because when the government needs to tell people for example you need to be quarantined. People need to listen so trust and honesty in an outbreak are so crucial without it things. Get out of control now You know in my mind. I think that people are going to listen to doctors people with actual medical degrees more than they're going to listen to president trump and so. I want to read you. Something that Dr Nancy Messenger at the CDC said earlier this week. I'm and she's referring to something called community spread which means that it's not a traveller who gets corona virus or a travelers husband or wife who get screen about Crony Virus. But someone WHO's out in the community as has happened now in northern. California at UC Davis. There's a patient where they don't know where she got corona virus that's community spread so Dr Sanjay said we expect to see community spread in this country. It's not so much a question of if this will happen anymore but rather a question of exactly when this will happen and this is important and how. Many people in this country will have severe illness. So she saying it's not a question of whether people will have severe illness. It's a question of how many I just have to think that people are gonNA listen to Tony Nancy mess anymore. They're they're more than they are going to listen to Donald Trump. I mean they actually are real doctors and then to follow onto Elizabeth Point That is what the president contradicted but CDC on And there's nothing wrong with coordinating messaging but the coordinated message should be coming from people like the likes of doctor and not from the president because the president has not focused on the details. He's not an expert on this. He doesn't have a high level of credibility with the public. But people like Tony Ouchi and Nancy. Messing do have high credibility and the Moore the administration could can put out people with actual expertise That will be helpful. Same goes with Mike Pence. Like actually has a bad record on public health so he does not have a high level of credibility here either But there are people in the administration do and can I jump in here for a minute. I think something that it's important to point out here. Is that this is going to be a tough crowd to rein in. I don't know if pence can do it because it's not just people in the administration but it's the county and state officials who do sort of the real You know legwork on outbreaks. They're the ones you do the quarantining and the isolation and the contact tracing and if he if he thinks if anyone thinks that local officials in California are going to listen to Mike Pence and do what he says I think they should probably think again there was a press conference. The governor newsom in California had yesterday where it was clear that he was saying. Hey something is wrong here. On the federal level yeah and trump has said that he would be ready to quarantine cities but ultimately that is something that would be. You would think adjudicated at the state level. Because that's where most of the public health happens in. It's more of a m correct me if I'm wrong. It's more of a coordinating thing for the for the feds at the at the national level. Like how does that work? How how would how would you even go about quarantining American city? Would IT BE MARTIAL LAW? Would you have the police in the streets would be? You would just ask people not to go to school. Would you ask? You know the the school districts not to convene I just this would-be so unprecedented for anything that I've experienced in my lifetime. I'm not sure how it would work in a free society like this right. I mean that's it's really hard to envision this. I remember when I was in public health. School quarantining on that level was seen as like a nuclear option. I mean that's just something that you know really hasn't been done before in recent memory e. Even what's happening now hasn't been done before done in recent memory even quarantining large groups which were doing right now for example the diamond princess passengers and others even that is something public. Health really really hesitates to do unless they absolutely need to do it. It is hard to imagine what a large scale quarantine like quarantining city would look like and I think that there are some excellent excellent chance that it would not necessarily work. Well because people would defy the quarantine and then what do you do right? And as far as trump is concerned if you think about his rhetoric on other issues and obviously those are totally different. But just say immigration. This is something where he had threatened to close the borders with Mexico over over something. That's not even close You know arguably the it's totally different than this but he has not used that kind of rhetoric with corona virus. At least not yet John. Why do you think that is well? He did act quickly at the beginning of the situation and Restricted flights from China to the United States He's not using A rhetoric comparable to rhetoric about the Mexican border. Because there's not really much evidence that it's Corner viruses coming into that source The president was complaining the other day that he'd been accused of racism when he restricted flights In from China so He's clearly conscious of potential backlash rhetoric of that kind but He did say that news conference on Wednesday evening. He was considering adding new restrictions from countries. Like Italy which is starting to see outbreaks of Corona virus and We'll see in the next few days if the if the situation seems to be leveling off or if we're on an inexorable march toward a pandemic then I would expect that the president is going to take a more stringent travel restrictions. Do you think that you know go ahead with this? Is Thinking that you know? I think that it's one thing to quarantine. Let's say Ebola had gotten to community spread in this country which of course it didn't but if it had I think that people might be able to wrap their heads around the need for quarantine for a disease that kills fifty percent at least fifty percent of its victims. I mean I was in Africa during the Bulla Outbreak and it was. I mean those people were incredibly sick. That is not the CASE WITH CORONA VIRUS. Mortality rate is maybe two or three percent could be even lower. There are people who are getting this new Corona Virus. Who have no symptoms whatsoever? They are not even sick. There are some people who are getting scratchy throat. I mean most of us have that you know probably every other day it is GonNa be very difficult to sell widespread quarantining when that's the kind of illness that people are getting people will think. What is the president doing this? We scratchy throats. This is crazy So I don't I that. Large-scale corning's seems like a A difficult scenario yesterday Mike Pence he he went and he spoke at CPAC which is a gathering of conservatives and he said something really important he said That now is not the time for partisanship and then moments later. He sort of launched into a screened in an attack on Democrats about being socialist and stuff like that so You know we. We are at a place in this country where we're going into this election and the two parties are fighting with each other with regarded corona virus. There Sniping Sort of sniping. Trump is doing some sniping over. How much money should be given to fight that? Should it be? Four billion dollars. Should be eight billion dollars Is Is there room for the parties to come together over this or should we expect them to continue to you? Know it will continue to be politics as usual on this issue John. Well I think there is room for the two parties to come together. you've had both Republicans and Democrats in the hill saying the administration's request for two and a half billion dollars was not enough And I think you will see bipartisan. consensus achieved Between the House and the Senate But this idea got A partisan bickering is the problem. Here is nonsense if partisan bickering Were the problem. We wouldn't have had three years of financial markets rising. The markets are reacting to reality here to the real threat to economic activity to the potential that consumers who have sustained the economy will Stop spending and push us into recession. it is common for administration to look to blame other factors when something happens that creates a bad set of circumstances for them. And that's exactly what this administration is. Doing Elizabeth. I just want to go back to what we talked about a little bit at the beginning. What is the timeline for when people should be ready for this kind of large-scale affect here in the US? How long will that take or do we know? Yeah I'm not. It's unclear. How large of on how large that effect will be and it really depends what you mean by large scale affect. It's you know what we've seen so far is that there have been cases in this country since at least mid January so a little bit over a month now and we have not seen or at least that we know of we have not seen you know rampant spread of this disease. And I think that that's a good sign. I think many people have asked me both friends. Colleagues everybody my mother my sister what can I do to prepare and what I tell them is look. You should be doing what you would do anyhow. You should be washing your hands. You should be staying away from sick people If you have an immune issue you should think about what other steps you would wanna take places you might not WanNa go. You know to prepare for a hurricane or a blizzard. You should have a fair amount of food and water in your house and batteries in the same way that you would prepare for an upcoming storm. You know those. Those are the kinds of things that people can do right now. Okay Elizabeth Cohen John Harwood. It was a pleasure speaking with you. Please stay safe especial.

Congratulations the narrative level so I'm replacing Prince Valiant with a Bugle special comic in which we have the first panel there's a giant squid in a shoe shop and the shop attendant who's a slightly smaller giant squid in a shoe shop uniform and then the giant squid says do you do half sizes that's the thing well we have to we have to talk about how reluctantly brexit the brexit talks are on the brink of collapse pretty much alike Goldensohn do it give it a new it would get this reaction and Chris what are your fears the Thaksin not just the Bugle comicstrip also the storyboards my forthcoming bio-pic John Oliver on the screen and then Andy presses the remote control in the channel changes to cricket and Andy Sizing goes a cricket so that's the Inaugural Vehicle Audio Adrian all is on the brink of collapse in it's basically collapsed a long time ago no no deal brexit comic strips like the first half of a bad joke being told badly by taxi driver there's also a bugle special bugle comic strips right off the top story this week and also I think Boris Yeltsin knuckles it preemptive hindsight a mean say what you like about Brexit I identify as someone who can't help you he say it's funny because the running joke of the wizard of is that it is that everyone isn't very nice in this week's Hagar the horrible hey guys with his wife and she's wearing a flower in her hair she

installments in cereal ought to be modular at least relatively self rang a machine gun all the other horses in case you've you've missed the negotiations at this week essentially involve the UK saying to the EU Hayes an unworkable solution the e U saying we'll it's obviously unworkable UK saying what is your problem with obviously unworkable solution that you're saying well they're obviously unworkable some traces of the original border only auto lunatics insistence still works the same the works so never has so much hot air lifted so few balloons according to no less assault embarrassed

dinosaurs are going to eat European input hope mental when he actually got around to it spent that year creating rather than trying to cram it all in and look I'm not one to criticize people for leaving everything to the last minute genuine attempt to bridge the chasm while still standing with a massive spite with which is doug the chasm but also I think Boris Johnson told Laura Kuenssberg BBC if only we could all come together fevers would cool which is reminiscent of the for any of you who missed it Boris Johnson's plan for the Irish border seemed to feature I think it was two borders

who helpfully suggested to Joan of arc that she take a layer off foreseen might be slightly problematic was easy to say with the benefit of hindsight indeed but also these appeals to bring the country hey stressful what do I think I think the basic proposal for some kind of homeopathic border the British border but I'm also not saying they weren't we all know raptors can open doors that customs laws try to these these appeals to bring Britain to who'd like Britain to be brought together it's kind of meaningless he's getting a little bit toasty whilst whilst pouring petrol all over her already overdone steak and blasting her with a flame thrower now there are certain historical details annoys to the end of his name Michael Gov similar admitting the government doesn't have a solution to the problem it's creating a beautiful expression of his faith in market forces to work their way around the government's failures and also worrying many people would say when you're on one side of a chasm before you start building a bridge maybe think what might be on the other side before you just build a bridge into a chasm we're talking about essentially what they're hoping seems to be the

that this was she can broker an exclusive trade deal with China homemade weapons grade uranium that's the future will make our own trade deals realistic jack cold fears of no deal breaks leading to severe delays at cross-channel ports absolute nonsense saying business will find a way through and the flexibility is that of a glutton who's ordered twenty portions of nine chicken nuggets instead of thirty portions of six chicken nuggets you'll border one eight years I don't know if that was the compromise or maybe it's half-abortive sixteen years or Chapman Porta Lou shouting halt who goes there you have to you have to look to the people for the arguments full brexit for example Doreen Smith from Leicestershire gave a moving speech about how she's waiting for the e you to get out of a waste it just won't be attention Michael Gov just add Z. which is the kind of compromise is compromise hostage negotiations when you've offered to slightly up the RADIATA that you've changed your hostage to discussion Elyssa Jackie so sorry sorry Alice that is just a beautiful price the conservative party conference Scottish roughly the size of Zombie or Guatemala but so much higher up the Olympic medal title which is wanting amazing nation the seventeen point four million people are not sure how many well in which case you will probably sitting at home thinking you know what what would really make my world is a real flare up in the Syrian crisis to me is like keeping a pet crocodile that has eaten six of your children because you like the fact that your neighbors are always parent your garden to see what's going on wisdom he has fully turned into an old testament God if located he he said this way and this government have compromised we in this government are showing flexibility actually won a medal give their mostly post athletic age up I do not believe that you have not done that now enough enough we need to leave and it is important to remember where we stand as a nation we are just we we just tiny humble nation of seventeen point four million people that's I think probably set on this podcast only one one thing that has ever brought Britain together as a nation that is the

behalf of the seventeen point four million in Elf tweeted if Turkey does anything that I these his exact words in my great and unmatched in everything other than the fact that sadly he actually exists paving the way for Turkey to launch its long threatened invasion of the largely Kurdish region though it's fine don't worry because Donald Trump recently get brexit narrowly to the other contenders for Tory party slogan conference including One Nation one H to Diane Let's let's do this you enjoying brexit are you enjoying the Hong Kong China crisis are you enjoying environmental armageddon get brexit done of course I mean that's that's the that's the mantra this nation at the moment the also the official slogan a Conservative Party conference Turkey breakage of done before explanation so there is there at Thanksgiving they also have an erotic stock anyway that's not going to say that I'm the conservative sticking with Boris Johnson as a leader through all this well all your

crazy things he said career not but it's twenty nine teen is Britain history what you wanted to leave never has the phrase if we all come together sounded less sexy a new case and you're letting down the people that voted for King unworkable solution that you're saying it's not what they voted for so filled in the gaps if Turkey does that my great wisdom considered to be off limits I will totally

WSJ Opinion: Potomac Watch

Bernie Sanders on Education

"You might know ADP as the biggest name payroll, but that's just the beginning because ADP is transforming the way, great work gets done with HR talent time benefits and payroll informed by data and designed for people, that's ADP always designing for people. From the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac watch. We've Joe Biden dominating the field. Other democratic presidential candidates keep floating proposals to try to break through. And amid and game or primary voters. We'll talk about Bernie Sanders proposal to block new charter schools, and Kamala Harris proposal to bridge, the gender pay gap. What are these candidates just below Joe Biden in the polls, trying to do and who are they trying to peel off from Joe Biden support, welcome? I'm Paul zhigo with the my colleagues here. Kim strassel? Hello, kim. Hi ball and one Kyle Peterson. Hello, kyle. Hello, hello. All right. So let's, let's talk about this. The democratic fields courts fascinating to look, Joe Biden has, I think surprise certainly surprised me with his strength since he announced his candidacy, getting into the race bouncing up to a very solid forty percent. In most polls and solid support from African Americans cruelly crossed the democratic spectrum, and one of the things that people who are suppo-. Putting Joe Biden are saying is that they want to be Donald Trump and Biden looks like the guy who can do it appeal in the midwest, industrial states for one thing appeal with his experience for another, and that's one of the that's seems to be, it's always on the mind at primary voters every presidential election to some extent. But this year seems to be taking on an even more important role. This idea of who can win electability in favor of, of Joe Biden. Never mind that electability is a fairly hard thing to pin down. You never know. Some people thought Don, Donald Trump was not electable turned out to be electable, other people who've said some candidates were sure things didn't win been a lot of those across the years. But right now, the other Democrats in the field are coming up with proposals Kim to try to break through and they seem to be trying to do it. Not on the question of electability, but on policy proposals pay attention to my proposal and here we have one this week came out on the weekend. Bernie Sanders on education, and he came out four square against anymore, new charter schools, and then favor of a lot more of federal spending on education. What's he up to here? Well, just on the broad point, by the way, I. My view is yes. They're trying to break through. But I think the strategy for all of these second tier candidates everyone that is neither, neither Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders is to simply hang on. Right. Because they idea out there is that for all of Joe Biden support, they're still sixty percent of the democratic electorate that has not made up their mind and they're currently all divided between twenty other different candidates. So if you can hang on and other people drop out, you may get that support in the end. And so I, I think that's what is motivating some of this. It's a it's a survival strategy. But Bernie Sanders. It's very clear here, what he's attempting to do. Well, first of all, is to consolidate his union support, obviously teachers unions, etc. They hate charter schools, and they love a bunch of the other parts of Bernie Sanders is new education plan, which fundamentally is all about giving tons of new federal money. Two different schools across the country, public schools. I think this is also weirdly a play for minority support because this was a big problem for Bernie the last time around. He ended the primary with only fourteen percent of the black vote, I'm not necessarily as sir, that, that is wise because while there are civil rights groups out there like the N, double ACP that tend to ally themselves with teachers unions among the black electorate and the Hispanic electorate charter schools are a pretty popular thing. Our colleague, Jason Riley had very good column on this, this week, talking about a poll that was recently done of democratic primary voters and, and of those fifty eight percent of black, democratic primary voters support charter schools as do fifty two percent of Hispanics. So I think that, that's what he's aiming that at, at this at. But I'm not sure that it's as big a winner is he might think. Yeah. That's that is an interesting question. The ACP, of course is financed by unions to a significant degree including the teachers unions, and it's the teachers unions endorsement Kyle. That is the big prize here, the national Education Association, the American federation of teachers, if you have been like me and gone to a democratic presidential convention. You will notice that public unions, are a huge proportion of the delegates in teacher its members of the teachers unions in particular, are big chunk of the delegates, and that endorsement from the NEA and the af tea is a prize thing to get and he's got competition for that. I mean Kamala Harris has talked, I think if I remember properly ten thousand bucks. For each teacher across the country, and Bernie. Here is pitching now a sixty thousand dollar minimum wage for teachers across the country, now that's not going to matter much in New York, where most of them will make more than that. But it probably does in huge chunks of the country, and that would be essentially a public payment from federal government to make up, whatever gap, there is between local pay and sixty K yet there's, there's no doubt that, that union endorsement and organizing is going to be key in the primary, and the general election. But to Kim's point, one of the things that may be interesting to watch here is whether, whether it's sort of drives a wedge into pieces of the democrat coalition. I mean it was very interesting last year the governor's race in Florida. Rhonda, Santa's who ended up winning by very narrow margin. There was some exit polling that showed he had surprisingly high support from particularly African American women. And there was some speculation that maybe that's because he he. Oh, had come out strongly for charter schools for vouchers for school choice and the opponent. They're Andrew gillum had essentially said they wanted he wanted to roll all of that back. So it's it would be interesting to see if that, that wedge continues to exist or even widens in this upcoming election. I mean, the, the, the truth of the matter is that these these, these families just see that charter schools are working one thing, I would throw out, there is a study recently by the national bureau of economic research that was published a Boston, Boston lifted its charter cabin over about four or five years, the number of charter schools in this city essentially doubled the city said of the rules, so that these proven providers were encouraged to start new campuses, and what the study found was that. Those campuses were just as effective as the original so the critique of charters that they don't replicate essentially didn't didn't hold any water, and the and the gains are huge. I also think Kim, that this Sanders proposal is an attempt to have a wedge again. Against Joe Biden, because Biden is member. He was associated for eight years with Barack Obama, who supported charter schools. Now, Bill Clinton, also supported charter schools, both education, secretaries under Barack Obama, Arne Duncan. And John king supported charters. So what is Biden gonna do? Is he going to go left and endorse the, the, the moratorium, which could in turn Kyle suggested give Trump on issues in the presidential election campaign, especially the ability to peel to minority voters? Or is he going to stick with the Obama proposal and, and, and maybe have that become a source of real debate in the primary? Yeah. Of all of the things that Joe Biden has been relatively quiet on. He's been particularly quiet on the question of education. And I think you just put your finger on exactly why it's because the look, if you go back, and you look through Joe Biden's history. He was initially a fan of the no child left behind act, which was George W Bush's education, reform that dealt with standardized testing and other things he has since said he'd soured on that, and a number of people did even some conservatives, but, you know, the, another interesting little story about Joe Biden is his brother, actually runs a for profit charter school chain. Right. Yeah. Drink bite. And by the way on that point of four prophet Sandra's called explicitly for the abolition of any for profit charter schools. Now most charters are nonprofit, but he said he calls for the explicit end of four prophets. I wonder if he knew about Frank Biden, because I didn't. Well, there you go. So I think that could be. Well, he's I think he's the president of it. But but he's certainly is very involved in that movement. And it's that jumped out at me too, and it's what made me remember that detail is, you know, when, when you have critics of charters, it's often they don't necessarily go after the four prophet ones in particular, and it was a big, bold letters and Bernie's plan on his website. You know, we're going to get rid of for profit charter school. So it'll be interesting to see how bind respond to this. But you make a good point here. Paul is it broadly within the Democratic Party. We've seen a big pushback against the reformist, especially in the past decade, the teachers unions, have really made this a litmus test for their support and really started to come down on those Democrats and L for a while. There was a lot of them that were embracing real reform in schools, in particular charter, schools, and experimentation. So by. After all those years association, and clearly families sociation in a long history in the Senate, where he's been on record with a lot of different proposals. I think it's going to be a very difficult area for him. The other the other interesting figure to watch here is Cory Booker, who has a long record of being in favour of school choice and has similarly sort of hedged on it. I haven't seen recent statements from him. But when he first launched his campaign, one of the reporters asked him about that, or you still going to sport school choice. And he responded words the effect of I'm going to run the most pro public school campaign this country's ever seen. So he just completely dodged that question. And if he if he were to get on the debate stage in four weeks four weeks from now and say charter schools saved Newark schools, then then we would have a real debate, I just don't know that we're going to get their keep in mind. Charter schools are public schools. He's on private schools. He's on parochial schools, religious schools. They are public schools are just organized differently. Usually independent of union rules and various other obligations that allow it to operate independently and have different standards. All right. The we're talking about the some of the other democratic presidential candidate proposals other than Joe Biden near listening to Potomac watch from the Wall Street Journal, you might know eighty as the biggest name in payroll. But that's just the beginning because ADP is transforming the way great work gets done with HR talent time benefits and payroll informed by data and designed for people, that's ADP always designing for people. From the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac watch. Welcome back on Paul's you go with the Kim strassel and Kyle Peterson. And let's take up now Kamala Harris, the Senator from California. She has a new proposal out Kyle to bridge, the so-called gender wage gap between men and women. She citing the familiar, if I think inaccurate proposal figure that women only make eighty percent of male wages overall. There's a lot of reasons for that having to do with life choices and so on. But she has a I think a notable proposal for what to do about it. What is it? Well, essentially, it's the flip the burden of proof. So instead of having employees complained to regulators that my company's discriminate against me, which you can do into current law. Sure, or or filing discrimination lawsuits. She would require any company with over one hundred employees, he's to prove that it is not a -scriminate ING, so within three years of this plan passing any company with a hundred employees would have to get an equal pay certification from the federal government, and the main qualify qualification to get one is they have to prove that, quote to the extent that pay disparities do exist for similar jobs companies will be required to show. The gap is based on merit performance, or seniority, not gender, unquote. So the way this is the trouble is the way this is being reporting reported is just so here's the sub head from vox, if companies don't want to pay women equitably. They will pay a fine. Instead, you know, that seems pretty straightforward, but the problem with that is, it's this huge fudge fudge factor within merit performance, in your d, you know, if you've got a couple of lawyers, and one of them wrote two long briefs, and one of them wrote five short briefs and one of them lost the case in one case, I mean, how do you as a federal regulator? Get involved in a million different companies judging the performance of their employees. It is exceptionally hard. In fact, it's impossible because it pay pay questions. I'm a manager myself and making question decisions about pay are are complicated enough. I mean and the measurements us are, you know, performance based, and obviously some people start, you know, in a lower salary at a comparable age. So they might take a while to catch up even if they're very good. Other people are they jump from a high paying position at another job and you wanna get them. So you. Got to pay him a little more for, for frankly, for comparable work. These are that Enam IX of the marketplace, and they really have nothing to do with discrimination. So Kim, I mean, it's, it's hard for me to believe you're going to have a national pay commissar come in and for every company that has one hundred employees go in there. Please prove to us that you have that this is all based on on merit, and it had the disparities and have nothing to do with discrimination. It's, it's, it's a recipe for essentially politicizing, pay throughout the private economy. Well, it's also a recipe for an incredibly complex system to address something that doesn't really exist. People who have done studies on this opposed pay gap, the complexity of all of the decisions that go to pay of individual person. But if you if you look out and you see these very broad numbers that the left will often cite showing a pay gap in a specific industry when you drill down into it, it, it often, most of that disparity has to do with priorities individual priorities, and choices, you know, women for instance, tend to, to work fewer hours, especially married women with children, because if they're given a choice between overtime, which produces more money or working at home, they or going home and spending more time with their children. Most of them, choose that. And there's a lot of different factors like that, that pay. And when you begin just stripped, those out there isn't really a pay gap at all. So I mean, this is the other thing is sort of making government the solution to a. A non existent problem. And that leads us to the question has wise Kamala Harris doing this, and we were just talking about Bernie Sanders, and, you know, this pitch to minority voters, you know, this is clearly a pitch to women voters for whom especially on the left of this is that this has become a dominating theme. And even though there's not a lot of accuracy to it, by the way, just one small clarification. I looked it up on the break. And Frank Biden is a former charter school executive. Well, that's a. Interesting. And I still think the Bernie will probably bring that up in an entity Kamala Harris is, is languishing. Right now. I think fourth or fifth and the democratic field you've got bide. And then you've got Bernie, then you've got Elizabeth Warren and then she's somewhere in there with a Pete booed edge of the mayor of south bend, and head of Beto Aurora. Former Texas congressman, but I think Harris's calculation is that of the air coups out of the Biden, candidacy candidacy, she's not going to have to run through Warren and, and, and Biden and Bernie, on the left, she can peel off some of their support and an inherent. Whatever Lee whatever support lease Biden. Right. And these, these proposals I think are best understood as bids for attention. I mean, the field is you've got a twenty four candidates. I think at last count. I saw the debate stage is going to be set for twenty so there are some of these people that are not even going to be in the first debate, and they're, they're trying to get their message across they're trying to figure out a way to, to get some attention. Connect with Oaters and to some extent. It seems like it's working. So I saw a recent poll Elizabeth Warren has been at the forefront of just putting out policy white paper after policy white paper, not often not really, really thought through, or great ideas from my point of view. But that's what she's been doing. And I saw a poll recently that, you know, the most liberal members of the democratic coalition now prefer her as a candidate to Bernie Sanders. So it seems like there's some indication that this, this churn of white papers is, is getting some has having some effect man to interesting. And of course, Biden is not be bind as being as unspecific as possible. I think in his policy proposals aiming his campaign directly at Donald Trump taking Trump on and saying it's a matter of presidential decorum, I'm going to bring normalcy and respect back to the White House without making a lot of policy proposals. And I think the will the other Democrats are trying to test to see. If that is, in fact, a strategy that can persist under pressure with everybody else coming out with, with a lot of ideas. Kim. Yeah. And it's a question that I don't think can be a lasting one. I think he can get away with it now and it's probably wise for him. Right. Because it's the best way for him to avoid this giant divide in the party at the moment between the progressive wing, that wants a lot more radical proposals at a more moderate wing, that is looking more for a return to the Obama years, sort of the way to go. And so this allows them to ignore it. But can he do it forever? Probably not because at some point here again, remember and it won't likely come until after the debates, but some people are going to drop out. They're going to run out of money they're going to realize they don't have a shot, and then you're going to start getting people mounting behind a progressive candidate on the other side. And I think that, that's where this ends up going as Biden versus a. Progressive. And then he's going to have to address some of these policy issues, but, but by holding his fire now he kind of preserves his optionality so he can tailor his message later, to whatever whoever that opponent the opponent that he ends up facing is, which is the trouble of putting on all these policy papers. I mean especially on the green new deal, there's been kind of a rising of the figures. You know, my new green green new deal six trillion, and yours is eight trillion Biden by not participating in that, you know, when we get down the road, and he's mono Amano you know, if somebody has five trillion he can say, two trillion, which is a figure that is a maybe we'll be enough to placate some of the progressive base. While also seeming more realistic to the, the moderate center of the party and the first test of this will be in the debates you mentioned late in June. Oh, joy. Democratic presidential debates are already here or. It be in a month. All right. Thank you, Kim. Thank you. Kyle. Thank you all for listening. We'll be back later in the week with another addition of Potomac watch.

"Stop Trying To Stoke Fears for Fame"

"Hello powerhouse politics. I'm abc news. Chief white house correspondent jonathan. Karl and i'm abc news political director. Rick klein rick This is impeachment day. we're coming from you. I've taken a quick break from our ongoing coverage because they've just had the vote on the rule. We're moving forward. We expect to have a bipartisan. Vote to impeach donald trump. A second time a second time by the way. I think on this podcast there was a prediction. Made that trump could become the first president ever to be impeached twice. And i don't think any of us anticipated it. What happened like this Either but but i believe if you go back and you look at the records. Maybe we can trevor Trevor pull that on getting ready for this one. Yes yes Yeah i mean. I think i think it was me that actually said that. But but you know This is this is a big day. Liz cheney's a statement overnight was Not just significant. Because she said she'd be voting for impeachment but it was significant because of what she said she said that it was the president was donald trump That incited that mob. it was donald trump Who caused that to happen. The riot insurrection. The attack on the capital She's without him. None of it would have happened. None of it would have happened without him. And she said that. This was the biggest portrayal of The office of the presidency and a the constitution by any president in american history. Those are strong words. We're gonna be talking very shortly to a republican who has now come out to say that. He will vote in favor of impeachment in the house. But i think it's notable and perhaps wall some of you are will listen to this. Podcast will already know the final vote but it's not going to be a large number of republicans in the house. Even after liz cheney the number three republican leadership came out with such a forceful statement. I you know the the the number. The overwhelming majority of republicans are still opposed to impeachment in the house. That's correct and if you're listening to the debate you're hearing not a lot of defense president trump's conduct although there are some folks like congressman jordan of ohio. Were still trying to relitigate the the election results. Mostly you're hearing it calls for unity suggestions that it'd be divisive as the president also said and and a lot of trust in the system holding and the precedents there at this moment and you see almost. Nobody actually defending the president publicly. Some are criticizing the idea of a fast impeachment. Saying that he's gonna be leaving in a week. Anyway what's the point of it all But but there's nobody out there either. I mean really in congress you know or on cable television Coming out to To defend him It's it's indefensible. The the actions of the president or events. Boy i understand that kevin mccarthy Spoke to trump before he took his trip to texas before he made his first public appearance since the since the riot any told him. Look you need to call joe biden. You need to accept the fact that the election is over and you lost. You need to appeal for calm and you need to turn the page from all this. You need to acknowledge the you bore some responsibility for what happened. That was the message that kevin mccarthy gave him and i am told that mccarthy told him that if he did not do that he risked a choice of either being not just impeached but convicted in the senate or resigning that those would be his choices and trump went out went on the trip and proceeded to say that he had done absolutely nothing wrong. He certainly hasn't Gone out and he's been called biden or done any of that He hasn't acknowledged he lost and He did he did make an appeal for calm and for peace but in the very same comments He also suggested that there could be more violence. If congress goes forward with impeachment and john. I know our guest is joining us right off the house during the day. So let's let's get to him okay. We have atom kensinger. Republican of illinois congressman. Thank you for joining us came. What's up thank you. Well i take note of the fact that you said you will vote for impeachment. One of just a handful. I right now. We're at five. I assume that number. We'll get a little bit bigger. But i'm just i'm just. Can you explain to me. I see liz cheney. Come out i mean. Obviously you've said very strong words about what happened On on wednesday in the capital and liz cheney Number three in leadership comes out and says that this is the most severe trail of the oath of office of any president in american history. Says that none of what we saw on wednesday would have happened if it weren't for trump and yet we're still going to see the overwhelming majority of republicans vote against impeachment. Can you in the house anyway. Can you explain why. Yeah i mean. I think bottom line is for a lot of people at sphere its Some are fearful. Because they're in you know in some way connected to this right. Some of them have made speeches and statements challenging whether the election was real and over. Four years kind of building this base narrative that lead to what we saw in the six that you know an outrageous claim like despite the evidence. This election was stolen. Actually make sense when you can build a foundation for four years for others. It's still this idea. I mean that look there will be massive blowback from the base. Trust me for for those of us that vote for it. But i think it's that fear that that is the only group of people you have to speak to the fact the fear that this trump movement will continue and i just i try to tell these folks like look you know what those fears may be correct but the biggest fear i think you should have. Is that history is obviously going to write a lot of pages about what happens here in what's happened really over the last four years. You know you wanna have your name on that right side of that historical page and that would be. My biggest. fear is to be left out. Because i didn't do what i knew to be the right thing. Did you write your political obituary with what you have done. Not just the past several days of what really over the past several weeks where you've taken on this You taking the president on directly on this question of of the election being stolen are you. Are you now going to face a primary and and the wrath of the base. That will cause you to lose your seat. So i think i'll definitely face you know. Primary and the wrath of of some of donald trump's hardcore base that will continue to exist. But i still believe that once. He's out of office. Once we can evaluate this whole presidency outside of him having a megaphone of twitter and the ability to save fake news and the ability to to. I don't know have that kind of aura of the presidency. I think the trump thing falls apart faster especially after the six Than anybody expects that. Said i very well may have an honestly. I've made a lot of decisions of my wife. That i thought you know would have high cost and and i'm fine with it. I'm fine with If this is the end of my political career hope. It's not but i am totally at peace if it is congressman. I was struck by something that i know. Your friend to former congressman denver. Riggleman was was arguing yesterday. He said he would also been a vote for impeachment and he was casting and not just the judgment on trump in the trump era but also on in on on misinformation on lying in politics. He's viewing this as bigger the stakes being bigger than just removing trump from office. Which is going to happen to the week anyway. We know the senate can't really practically convict before that. Are you seeing similar stakes in in the vote that you're about to cast. Yeah i mean. I think i think completely Denver's head on a year ago. I did a video called unplugged the rage machine and it was talking about conspiracy theories and and i mentioned cunanan and that was before anybody i mean. Think about a year and a half ago. Nobody knew cunanan was. That's crazy on but what you see is on this internet culture. Basically the spreading and solidifying of these ideas and and since then we've kind of woken up to it. And i fear that we might have woken up a little too late but i think misinformation truth telling is going to be important to disinfect. That people waking up to misinformation is going to be important. And i also think we have to evaluate. You know this culture where we have to raise so much money to win again and fear honestly as the greatest driving of driver a fundraisers. I'll make more money if i send something out saying. Give me money. Nancy pelosi is going to destroy america than i would say. I believe in in better days ahead. Give me money. And that's all the stuff that we're gonna have to reevaluate. It's not going to be some cool by a moment on the floor. It's going to be some awakening by the american people to hold their leaders accountable to the rhetoric to that point and to the leaders of you're talking about you've got colleagues who are continuing today to say that the The election was unconstitutional inappropriate. No one's really defending the the the rioters actions but you do have colleagues who are continuing to spread misinformation about the election defend the president and regardless of the impeachment vote. I know that this is a tough old for a lot of republicans. Leaving that aside. I've talked to some democrats who are afraid to be around some of the republicans Especially some of the newly-elected republicans some of whom burst past the the metal detectors last night and have said that they would be armed on the floor. Is that overblown. I mean you personally afraid of your own safety on the house floor. No and i think i do think look. I'm not going to question whether some people feel unsafe. But i do think some of that has dramatics overblown. But because look i mean we can go into the white house as an example without going through metal detectors we always have been able to but look. There's always inherent risk everywhere. I'm not gonna complain about the metal detector issue. But what i will say is. I think we all have to. And i don't know how to do this. But you know the best way to dissuade. Each other's fear is to get to know each other and understand what the other person's fear is but one of the biggest problems by party. I think the democrats faces to an extent too but that we face every but without everybody we have these people now that to get elected for the sole purpose of being well known and celebrities. And we've turned into. Let's get the most re tweets possible so that we can get mentioned on all the news stations. Even if it's crazy so that i can be well known and we've got to get back to where people can come out and being well known doing media but coming out here to to seriously legislate and stop trying to stoke fierce for fame. What is your assessment of how kevin mccarthy has handled this You know. I think that's a family meeting that we're going to have to have when we kind of get past this. This current moment. Look i. I have real concerns for instance with How we have nurtured an accepted the narrative of a stolen election. I have extreme concerns with how there were votes to object even after the riots of january six. I think you know kevin's going to have to. I think talked to the conference. And and i think go after some of these members that stoked it and so we'll see how that goes. I think it's too early to talk about anything. That will or won't happen and give him an opportunity as the elected leader to to to make right. Some of the wrongs do. Do you see the possibility of third party movement growing out of the trump as a as a probability or even inevitability curious because a lot of people have said republicans like yourself should leave the party. I i don't know if that's what what's perks. Sparks it as much as some of the folks you know those of the capital aside people that believe still that this election was stolen will take trump. Isn't that far that they're going to take their movement and go somewhere else and do you feel like that's likely now that we'll see a maga- party a freedom. Whatever they call it a third party movement that grows at a trumpism. I hope so I look it's it's the vast majority of people even at this protest are just good. Republicans many of them misled for four years. Right and believe it. I think they will wake up. There are going to be some hard cores that there always are out there that for them. It was about power for them. It was about being the proud boys. And kind of fascism and racism. I do hope they start their own party. Because i don't think there's any room in a republican party for them. And you know we always try to do this. Big ten thing and it means bringing all these ideologies but there is a red line and i think some of that ideology has got to be a red lines. They want to start their own party. Fantastic we can you know. Get back to the roots of conservatism. Isn't what our party is. But if they don't. I think there's going to be a real reckoning and here about what a republican is quite honestly again. I think that the vast majority of people will kind of like i use the analogy of like. It's waking up. Saturday morning from a real bad bender friday night just kind of looking around going man. What did i do it is. It is Certainly wreckage out. There i remember you know. I mean my reaction as as donald trump was marching towards the nomination. In two thousand sixteen was the republican party will never be the same again Tin it's hard to an end. I don't if i could have envisioned it going exactly this way but but but it but it's really something what what's your what's your estimate. What your guests and how. Many republicans vote. Yes on this well to more than five. I don't want to get into the guessing game. Because if i guess too high. We go below expectations. If i guess too low then it'll give some people excuse not to do the right thing. I think it'll be in the double digits. I i know. There's a lot of people that are trying to find an excuse not to vote for it. They're using processes the argument. I just certainly hope that they you know again recognized that history is going to record this. And it's not gonna necessarily record your process arguments as your reason for opposition. Yeah no doubt. And liz cheney i mean obviously as we discussed the majority the vast majority of republicans are gonna vote against this In the house to do what does this do to liz. Cheney's leadership prospects going forward. The she ultimately get credit for being forceful even for making a forceful case and a principal case Even though it was a case that the vast majority of of conference disagreed with or or does she face the wrath of the base. No i think well the base argument. Who knows i think in terms of members i. I don't think our leadership in threatened. I think her star has risen in this in it. Because i think there's very few people that i've talked after i came out in support disagree with me. They will just say. I think sometimes sheepishly. Well i worry about the process right. And but i think when it's all said and done i mean this. The the coalition to impeach against opposition to certification of the election. Really is made up of hawks like me and freedom caucus members and people all over the place. So there's no real kind of clear battle lines and all this and so. I think she'll be saved and and frankly i think she'll get a lot of credit for what she's done. All right congressman adam kissing of illinois one of the five votes so far to impeach donald trump. Thank you for joining us. Really appreciate your comments and we'll talk to you when this is all over. Thank you you bet. thanks guest rick. Let's take a quick break. We'll be right back.

You can trust always credible always solid start here from abc news twenty minutes every day on your smart speaker or your favorite podcast app. Welcome back to powerhouse politics. Rick adam kin zinger by as we were just talking during the break a significant. I thought that i. He says he hopes will be a third party movement. If the if the republican party can't get beyond this What what we've seen unfold a remarkable and a and a very you know a tense day in his in his political career in his life to join us on today this historic day. I you know. I don't know how this ends nobody else. This how this ends. I think increasingly. We're seeing schisms that are beyond healing and You know we've we've both covered congress covered washington for a long time. John and we talk about things in terms of pitched battles and major political battles. Something changed last week and something has changed the last week where Actions started to to fill in where words have never really taken us before and to see violence at the have lawmakers now afraid for their physical safety among their colleagues just on their way to to work. Nobody knows where what can happen. Next as more details have come out of about last wednesday. We now know it could have been a lot worse and trump will be gone week from today he will no longer be president but the the folks who came to the capital aren't going anywhere and they're americans. They have a right to be here. They should be prosecuted that many millions of people that voted for him the mini maybe thousands that supported. What what the people. At a protests did they're still part of the process and they're not going to go away and nor should they and But these are not simply political divisions anymore. This got very very real very very fast. And i you know i think to my mind. A third party movement is more likely tonight. I don't know what the next instigating event will be in this but you know don. Donald trump is going to be gone. He won't be quiet and his movement certainly won't be and in terms of the immediate here. I told nancy pelosi intends to send the articles of impeachment over to the senate as soon as as possible right now. The senate is actually not in session until next week so there's been calls to mcconnell nicole. Call them back earlier. So the senate trial can get underway as recall under the rules. As soon as the senate receives them. They've got to begin acting on them immediately by one o'clock in the afternoon of of whatever day they come in or one o'clock the following day if they come in after one o'clock so you know this is. This is very much on a fast track. And and rick i've been told By people who. I respect who have been counting votes in the senate for a long time republican votes To not rule out the possibility that there are sixty seven votes which means at least seventeen republicans to convicts donald trump An amazing an amazing concept. It's all really gonna come down to whether or not mcconnell goes in the direction that he seems to be telegraphing th mcconnell actually mcconnell who we know has told colleagues that he believes that donald trump committed impeachable offenses that he welcomes the house impeachment But he hasn't said he would vote to convict Which is another question but if he does which seems to be the direction he's going in. I think it opens up the real possibility that you have a 'cascade of of other what i would call. Senate institutionalists republican institutionalists. Who were close to to mitch mcconnell. Who you could see a come out and also Also vote T to convict. I mean i'm talking about people like you know John cornyn Senator burr. who's not running again anyway. Senator shelby senator thune Senator in off who had a pretty severe break with With donald trump over the defense. Bill senator portman senator boozman cast the. I mean think you're starting to see the did. There are a universe of senators who voted. No and i don't voted. No but but made forceful cases against the idea that that congress should somehow overturn the results of the presidential election. Those republicans did that. That's your universe and it's a universe that makes it not inconceivable that that you could see two thirds majority to two convicts donald trump which Which is just a just a mind blowing idea right. Politicians are going to do politics right. I mean there's no small degree of of self interest in now week left in in the president's term to clearing it that he he should go. A lot of these folks made private judgments a long time ago that they never shared. They had an opportunity other than mitt romney also to vote to to remove him from office a year ago and they didn't do didn't do so they made a judgment. I i that's part of equation. Now we heard congress and kissing her to go talk about the judgment of history books. That's a consideration as well. i think. Another factor john and all of this in members that. I've talked to in in the staffers that i've talked to. They witnessed this. This happened to them they were. They were targeted people. If look if mitch. Mcconnell had come into the grasp of that mob last week. If mike pence had come into the craft with that mob they'd be dead. I have no doubt in my mind that there would be murdered. Members of congress. Republicans as well as democrats and to my mind to win the president will continue to deflect and redefine and pretend like that was an okay speech that he had nothing to do with it to me. That's extra offensive to members of congress who saw and themselves felt threatened by it and they were confronted finally an absolutely by the president who was doing reckless things and then in the aftermath. Lying about it. He's donna the lot and they stood by for a lot of it and understood where it was for whatever reasons privately however they've managed president trump. But the this at this stage given where he is in this where we are at this moment this was that final straw and it would not surprise me at all to see the the senate convict the president of high crimes and misdemeanors disqualify him from from from running again Even though that doesn't end his terminal. So let me just close but a one to watch. And i think maybe one of the most fascinating and maybe the most important in whether or not that outcome happens. And that's Senator chuck grassley President pro. Tem descendant longest serving republican. Senator somebody Enormously respected by republican senator somebody very close to donald trump and who frankly backed trump on some of the crazier talk of of of election fraud. But he is the president pro tem. He is in the line of succession in that role. He was whisked out of the The senate chamber to To a secure location. And and i am told Was was severely affected by that but by that experience He was horrified. Not only by what he saw happened to that building. He has spent so much time in most of his life in between there and the farm out in iowa that's been his existence Driving around all ninety nine counties in iowa and and working in that capitol building and he I am told by by by someone who spoke to him. Recently in the wake of all of that He was equally horrified By donald trump's reaction to what happened his silence as as they were under attack his refusal to come out and unequivocally call on people to stop and to go home so i would wash chuck grassley if chuck grassley took that extraordinary step and actually voted to convict. There's any question that there would be at least Seventeen republicans who would who would Who would go along with conviction so we shall see john in another world you know we'd be talking about the incoming biden administration and the new agenda of the democrats have now taken congress. And what a remarkable thing that donald trump who's been omnipresent for these last five plus years on the national landscape and certainly after the four years of his presidency is going to continue to linger into vitamin the into the biden days. He his presence even as an ex-president even without twitter facebook or youtube even without saying anything publicly he is going to be a major force that still has to be reckoned with literally the reckoning that will occur in the senate chamber the the first hours and days of the biden presidency will be focused on impeaching president trump. All right on that note. Rick let's get back Looks like they are just about done with vote. on the rule. We're going to be back to our coverage on television of the debate over impeachment in the house for. Thank you for listening powerhouse politics. Thank you avery miller. Trevor hastings in the power is politics team. We will be back next week. Or i think there's a real possibility even sooner.

Monocle 24: Midori House

29:49 min | 2 years ago

Thursday 7 February

"You're listening to Midori house. First broadcast on the seventh of February two thousand nine hundred thousand a monocle twenty four. Hello and welcome to Midori house coming to you live from studio one here in London. I'm Juliet foster and on today's show I've been wondering what the special place in the whole looks like for those who promoted it without even a sketch of a plan how to carry safely Donald Tooth's outspoken criticism of Brexit tear politicians has ruffled feathers in the United Kingdom. But as British Prime Minister, Theresa may returns to Brussels can shoot least steer her country back to purgatory Germany promises to pay more cash into NATO's budget, but will that satisfy Donald Trump who's accused, but they're not not giving enough. My guests Sebastian borger, and James Rojas will be discussing this. And the days are the top stories, including the findings of a Royal commission lease to the resignation of two senior executives from a major. Australian Bank are well commissions the best way to bring the powerful to account. All that. Plus better late the never seventy years after refusing to publish his essay, defending English cooking. The British Council says sorry to the author. George Orwell muscle to come here on Midori house with me Juliette foster. Welcome to Midori house. My guess today. I'll Sebastian borger the London correspondent for the Turkish beagle. And James Rogers, he's head of international journalism. Studies at City University, London, gentlemen, welcome both of you to the program now with just fifty days to go until Britain leaves the European Union. The pressure on Prime Minister, Theresa may is intensifying. She's in Brussels, hoping to arm twist the EU into accepting a revised version of her withdrawal agreement yet has both sides look for a breakthrough. It's also clear that Europe's patients has finally worn thin European Council. President Donald tusk provoked the IRA of British politicians and the media when he spoke often die quotes a special place in hell for those who promoted Brexit without even a sketch of a plan of how to carry it out safely. A question really to both of you, Donald is a streetwise politician. So why would he say this knowing that it's going to encourage if you like an adverse reaction in the u k? A more importantly went to reason may as having a pint in the last chance saloon. Well on image. Julia. Surprised with prime minister has how the point over the last couple of years to need it every politician. These days is very very wise to the way the media would have portrayed this. Mr tuszca. No doubt knew that his words would probably end up being taken slightly out of context. It's on those irresistible things for headlines. Nevertheless, you know, he does make a very serious point. I think as far as reaction in this country goes media reaction, political reaction popular reaction like so many other things. Now, it depends largely on the way that you voted in the two thousand sixteen referendum a lot of people who voted remain will say, yes, he has a very very good point here. A lot of people who voted leaving. We saw that. Even for members of the cabinet yesterday was saying, well, this is why we want to leave the European Union. We don't want to be bullied and spoken to like that. So whether it's helpful to the processes one matter, but I think it is it is fairly Frank expression of how strongly people feel at this stage. Of course, it's not helpful. But we. We I think we can agree on the, of course, it was entirely scripted. I have no doubt about that. But it was informed by his meeting with the Irish T. Shocker lever at car just before that press conference where he said it where he talked about hell, and that's got nothing to do with both of those countries. Poland in Ireland, traditionally being Catholic it, but it's got everything to do with the fact that I think for the first time Brussels is now concentrating on the effect that no deal, the chaos Brexit that we're heading for I fear, and we'll have not only on on Britain, which to some extent is par for the course, I suppose, but on the Republic of Ireland, and and how how much the European Union will have to invest to to keep the Irish economy afloat and the Irish. People fed and waters. I mean seriously. This is going to be very awkward, and this is a very important point as well. Because the the the Brexit backstop. We'll certainly the concept to the backstop was something that was very much absent or certainly appear to be absent in the run-up to this referendum because the emphasis was on immigration. It was on the national health service. And there was no talk about about the backstop, and that's key. Because one of the signatures to that is the United States of America. I mean, I think this is you know, remain is in particularly that misters Cuza point. And I think so so fat to say, and we saw this in some of the reactions in majorly in the days after the referendum, however, much they may actually know how to house wanted to where most of the leaf campaign is did not expect to win this referendum. Nothing. The allegation that this was on clans. Nobody knew exactly what leave looked like. Because I haven't been set out before an argument was put forward by those people in this country campaigning for a second referendum nothing. They have been largely. Born out. I think James, I think it's worse. I think there was a deliberate decision by the leave camp. Not to spell out. What's what's Brexit would look like because they didn't expect to win that didn't feel they need a too much. Too much worse against the cost. They they realized that hap- they spelled it out. They would have been you know, taken down on the details. And and their case would have been fairly quickly fallen upon would have fairly quickly fallen apart. So so so I think that was at that was part of the strategy brilliant strategy. You may argue, but but obviously devastate let's take another point of Mr. two's criticisms because he he wasn't just looking at those Brexit, Erin, Pitt and he MP's there's a veiled reference there to the European research group, which is a conservative group of MP's in in the in the government, basically who all pushing hard for for that Brexit without without without agreements. But he also criticized remains as well because he despaired what he saw his rather weak lack of leadership and the tax equally blistering because they they were pretty mild compared to the the religious imagery that was used before where I'm gonna thing. This is this really is in a. I don't think this is helpful tool because this is this is a criticism of something that may or may not have happened three years ago in a very very different circumstances. I don't think anybody who's some people who directly involved in the league leave campaign may try to justify their actions. But I don't think anybody thinks he was done, particularly well and having spoken some people who campaign for it. They will point to many errors. It's not useful to direct. But the point that he's making though is that there is a weak leadership at the heart of the remain team this Lomas. Not leadership is the lack of leadership will decisiveness is there than perhaps it makes the inevitability of overhauled Brexit more of a certain team. But again, it tells you something about the misconception that is in both Brussels and some other countries, and I'm afraid I will have to include my own that that people were still thinking this decision is reversible. And of course, any decision is reversible. But I I I'm afraid the the problems of the last few weeks it particularly parliament have shown up how how terribly difficult the case is for a second referendum in in fact, to the to the extent that they don't even table the relevant amendments anymore to to the government built. So so, and I think Brussels, of course, being used to countries reconsidering. Think of Denmark, ninety to think of Ireland two thousand one think of island two thousand eight and may have thought that Britain would reconsider. I always thought John Major the former prime minister was ride when he said the British people, even if they make a terrible mistake, which I think this is a too proud and too stubborn to reverse. Down the road. But he let let's look at what's happening now in Brussels because MRs may is there she's hoping she cannot truly have this revamped re tweaked version of her withdrawal dill that that somehow or other it will be accepted by by the EU the signs so far not looking promising, but everybody has to be optimistic. But there is a train of thought in Britain has to be optimists. What one can be mildly optimism. But the point about it, though, is that a lot of the people have been saying miss country. Will you know, the only these things to announcement? It's always possible you can pull a last minute. Robbie town to the hat is easy. Look. I mean, the the problem is, and I think that's where to ski and young awry, the problem is not can we get the EU twenty seven to agree on something which will be difficult enough. And and also I can only say beware of what you wish for because if you open that treaty, then than I can already see the Spanish shouting g brought her again, and the and the French the French talking about fish, and and all that kind of the so beware for it. But but even if they did then the the problem that they point to is will may be able to get the deal through parliament. No, she won't. We know that we we know she's got a hard core of I'd say two to three dozen idiots in her own in her own party. Who will vote down anything? She brings home. Let's not beat about the Bush. It's ridiculous. Absolutely. No way unless she moved. Towards labor, and of course, corporate has opened the door to that customs union guarantees on worker's rights, blah, blah, blah, and immediately she Scott one hundred and fifty labor backbench. Let's let's look at a possible scenario because one of the accusations that some have made against her James is that he's deliberately trying to run down the clock. So in other words, we end up having a hall Brexit. Whether we like it or not who will be blamed for this. Would it be British politicians for what some regard as inept negotiating or will it be the Europeans who carry the can for being inflexible? Now is exactly the same the way that you interpret Mr. to comments as pretending xactly on what you're inclined to believe in the first place remains will say this the and particularly room remains who naturally labor, a liberal Democrat votes will say this was entirely defaults to conservative party their own the process from start to finish and they failed to deliver. And they made a terrible mess of it. However, I'm quite. Certainly large proportions of people within the conservative party of us who voted leave will say, well, look this. This is what the European Union's all about. You know, they tried which tried to set our own course in they've done their best to frustrating. So I'm afraid there are many many things in this country now, which your your opinion is pre decided upon what we are predisposed to think about Britain's relationship with the rest of Europe. So I think that is exactly how the blame will be poked proportion. However, this turns out the end of the day Sebastian a lot of this is done through through the prism of optics. Isn't it it's going to look and particularly the generations how they're going to judge it? And and of course, the British media overwhelmingly supported Brexit, and therefore will blame the European Union. I I have no doubt whatsoever. Okay. Then let's move on now to Germany because Germany has told NATO it will stand by its promise to boost defense spending to one and a half percent of GDP or sixty billion euros by twenty twenty four yet achieving that goal wound be easy. A leaked finance minister your portrait veal the tax revenue. News. We're expected to rise by less than expected in the coming years because of a slowing economy at the same time a one half percent spend is less than the two percent benchmark which America believes aligns members should be putting into the NATO pot. So if Germany com deliver on that promise Sebastian to look as if it's trying to dodge its responsibility. So at the slack can be picked up hills where fairly accurate representational false. Look. I mean, the first thing is, of course, we amongst many other nations of Germany amongst many other nations agreed to two thousand fourteen at the NATO summit in Wales to up the spending to two percent. Two percent. Not one point five two percent of GDP. And I find it slightly worrying that they could kind of go around saying proudly. Well, isn't that great that we're going to raise it to one and a half of sorry? You've you promised to raise too. To percents in that sense. Don, Donald Trump. Sorry. I was gonna say Toscano. Donald Trump is entirely right entirely, right? In saying you promised Dow keep your keep your promise and deliver. Now second thing, of course, is it's difficult to to from a from basis of I think one point two at the moment of GDP it to to up spending in in such a way in in a in a in a in an intelligent way, where you don't just buy in any any old tanks and airplanes, but you've got to sort of structure your forces in in a new way. And that'll take time am I wonder I mean, also politically it's difficult because there is a large part of the German public, which is entirely, you know, was was brought up on pacifism, and and is entirely against any military spending. And totally ignores the fact, of course, that this is one of the biggest. Exporting nations in the world, and and has a certain responsibility towards both its region and beyond and I guess the other question which arises from this James is why does spending half to be financial because Germany will so engages in NATO initiatives. There are no military activities. Also fall deployments in countries like Afghanistan. So on these Justice valid as opening a wallet. And throwing cash report. Sebastian makes an excellent point about the undertaken, which was which was given them particularly the wider context of a world in which President Trump has questioned the value of NATO, which he always compares the amounts which other NATO members demand to their budgets, which they commit to NATO compares unfavourably with a three and a half percent. The United States spends on defense. And I think in a world where perception is means as much as reality. This is a problem for Germany tuna percents targets, a very you could imagine Donald Trump tweeting, these these are very simple figures that lend themselves very clearly to to one of his tweets in this off our the day overnights. And so I think it is going to be a problem. But I think Sebastian also made a very good point about you know, what is war these days. How should military's equipment sells? Let's take the example of the way that you know, there's been concern in some quarters about whether Russia might try to move troops into some of the Baltic nations in what waters Russia has actually done their most Ron. Easterby in two thousand seven with a row with Estonia over the moving for Soviet woman Morial was to mount to cyber attack. So is it really that sensible to go buying lots and lots of hardware when modern war in Europe is not going to just be about mistakes. In two thousand eight in Georgia. Wasn't it? I agree. I totally that conflict was actually remarkable for the huge sums of both some spent both sides spent with western public relations firms to try to make that point. Anyway, at the Ralph not she committed in your own troops on the ground proxies. And I agree that German. Cyber capacity is capability is woefully am nonexistent, more or less, and and all the all the accounting measures about 'em talking about I mean, that's the other thing that a lot of the the German public talks about well, we spend a lot of money on on development aid, which in its own way. Is is peace preserving, but it doesn't it doesn't matter matchup. You've got to put more money into the military. That's no doubt about. I mean, we've been talking, of course, about Donald Trump, and he's the edifice in the room metaphorically speaking, I guess, but I mean. But that's the point the point is he's he's basically said, look, you know, I'm I'm putting in about three percent. I think is the US contribution. And you know, the Americans have complained in the pulsed and Trump is really wrong with that battle on. I mean to be fair. I it was George Bush, George W Bush was Obama Trump says it in a much more forceful and to some is unpleasant way fine. But the the the promises said, and you've got to you've got to keep it. And actually, I mean, it's not in the end. What does that two percent promise matter? What matters. I think is that Europe is is is a region of stability in a very unstable. We are confronted on our border with Russia, which is which is a pretty dodgy country. These days we have lots of problems in in in neighboring regions. We and we need an and whatever whatever, however, well, we do peacekeeping within the European Union. There are other unpleasant people around the world, and we've got to be we've got to be able to face them down as well. James that if Germany is going to row back from this commitment because as Sebastian said, you have the NATO summit in Wales it signed up to these terms. Two percent, it sets a pretty bad precedent, doesn't it that? If other countries just say, well, look if Germany's going to do that, then hey, we might as well for those suit thing there is a risk of that. Although, unfortunately, wouldn't be the first or the last international conference when pixel of Bill. As the backdrop as well. And bellicose president is. Well, yes, no. I think it is. And I think that's why I mean, these are leaked documents one has to be slightly circumspect about how these find the winds. The media is this something that's trying out as a policy and they want to le- deliberately or was it. A conscientious civil servant who wants to bring domestic politics as well. The finance ministry saying, you know, that the defenseman is MS minister from the line saying are needing more money. The finds ministry say basically saying I we haven't got the money. It's ridiculous. 'cause they have the money if they want to spend it. I mean, the only good thing, I suppose, we if we we are watching with mixed feelings how the euro-zone economy is going down at the mall. And then of course, if you spend sixty billion on the military that'll be a higher percentage of your GDP wanted if you okay? Well, someone's got to juggle the coin somewhere. But you're listening to Madari house here with meat Judy at foster Mike S, Sebastian borger and James Rogers coming up next all Royal commissions, the most effective way of bringing the powerful to account when they do wrong. What is it like to be a city forgotten and rediscovered Monaco films travels to Gooden San in South Korea to bear witness to its urban revival in natives and newcomers creating quirky buzz out spaces and a bright future for this charming coastal outpost? Goodson building on the past playing now in the film section at Monaco dot com. Still with me on Sebastian borger and James Rojas. Australia's banking sector has been left. Wheeling this week after the shock resignation of two senior executives from one of the country's top for banks. The chairman and the CEO of National Australia Bank were forced to step down after a Royal commission inquiry into industry wrongdoing. Single them out the scathing criticism as the four hundred former fees Fano service, sinks in many commentators believe the scandal. Could only have come to light because all that will commission James are they right while it probably looks like nothing sometimes examples went public inquires of this night show. Do hit the target. We've had quite a few examples in recent years in number of industries, whether it was self regulating on that in many cases, meant basically, non regulating an on this occasion. It certainly seems that those people who are singled out by these senior. Actors have accepted responsibility and have resigned. So in that sense. It has, you know, rooted out this bad practice, and it does seem to have had an effect pretty much every industry makes a plea at some point one example and things in this country is the media that's been something been through a lot in the last ten years. Exactly might please to Bill out to self-regulate, but it doesn't always work terribly. Well, and it seems in this case the public inquiry will the Royal commissions. I call them in Australia seems to have done the trick certainly to the extent that these executives entertain responsibility for their actions. But I think the point is is that yes, they took responsibility very, very grudgingly. Because we stood back and say, well, we didn't do anything wrong. And you've got you've got hold of the wrong. End of the stick case. There's no sign of contrition is is interesting because I I mean, I've, I'm Australia tragic as my. Relatives over there. We'll say so I've I've come and gone for thirty five years now, and there have been a number of Royal commissions in Australia, which I think move the political debate along along along way on on the aborigines on the the mistreatment of children who had been sent over in the forties and fifties or on not least on sexual crime in in churches. And so this is only the latest example finally enough. I mean, I'm I'm watching Britain fairly carefully for for a quarter of century. Now, I can't remember that Britain had a Royal commission. Even though Britain has royalty. You know, it's always a public inquiries of some sort of another. And and so that seems ought to. Of course, we don't not having royalty. We don't have Royal commissions. But we have parliamentary. Investigations which have also and Germany which have also sometimes, you know, really cracked an issue like that. That's that is young begging. Now, if we talk about banking in particular, of course, we had the parliamentary commission on banking here in in the UK in twenty twelve thirteen which I think was effective in the way. It's it looked towards the future at short tried to try to split half investment banks from from retail Bank is cetera. But but but I think the misdemeanors of of the period until the financial crash and beyond still hasn't been dealt with. That was the point isn't it James? Yes, it's great having these commissions public enquiries, call them what you will shining. A light confirming suspicions that something rotten has occurred in a structure, but it is when there is no legal accountability that people can walk away with a nice payoffs at cetera. And go and live quietly. Okay. And this is not a weakness that some of these some of these key in Guam role commissions should have legal POWs are things Sebastian was very good point about talking about the the financial crisis. Because I think that's really changed a lot of people's perceptions. I note for the Reuters report on this story sister, the last shareholders meeting eighty eight point one percent of the shell is voted against the executives having their bonuses. So oversee the Royal Commission's findings that to that's accent, a very much in tune with popular opinion. But yes, I mean, of course, enquiries like this and criminal matters are two completely different ones and other people involved in this case of denied any wrongdoing they've accepted responsibility for things which may have gone wrong while they're there. But from there to actually, you know, a criminal case, it's a lot of people have light see in relations, the financial crisis is quite so long stab. Okay. Well, let's move on now to finally story because I think it's fair to say that sorry seems to be the hardest word for the. Council which has taken seventy years to apologize to the author. George Orwell for refusing to publish one of his essays Orwell whose works include animal farm and the road to Wigan pin wrote in defense of English cooking in nineteen forty six. However, the council decided it would be quote, unwise to publish it of the hungry winter of nineteen forty five and wartime food rationing I'll have to confess that. When I I read this story. I foot won't visit a little bit of political correctness hip, but not quite political correctness. But it's the spirit of it. And it's it's interesting to see, but some sort of a onset was there even back then in the doctor. He's of the nineteen forties. The immediate post war years surpassed in well. First of all, I think it's great to keep the maim George overall in the public debate. Because it it it might get some younger people to take out one of his books and delight in his wonderful. Title English prose. And I've I've been particularly enjoyed recently his essay on how to make the best Cup of tea. So that that's a related related issue. And but but you know, I can totally understand. I always remember my parents saying in in Germany, and I I I'm not sure I don't think it was very different here in Britain. The worst winter was not there wasn't no wind during the war was as bad as the the the one or infected two winters after the war, forty five forty six forty six forty seven and two two then it could have maybe I looked a little bit sort of or quits to people's very considerate. But then you have to ask yourself, James. He wrote this article seventy years ago, they decided not to publish it. Because they've been very sensitive to to the conditions that people were going. At the time say what's the point because all receive it? And the challenge is all because he was a good hat. Good journalist he thought. Well, okay. Then you haven't published it fine. I'll go onto the next client. I think it's interesting the property as a point here because I mean, one thing he writes about in the essay how much British Christine relies on animal fat and sugar. Now, I would imagine if you had lived through this very very lean winter and terrible time in European history.

'More Optimistic and Less Dire'

"Attention powerhouse politics listeners just note that ABC News and fivethirtyeight will be bringing you daily coverage of the convention all week long checkout five thirty. It's politics podcasts for instant reactions of the night of and start here from morning briefing of what went down. You can find links to those shows in the episode description, and of course, powerhouse politics will be here all week long. So subscribe to your friends to subscribe and listen here for analysis and in-depth interviews. Well. What would the power of politics on ABC News? Chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl and seen as political director Rick Klein Rick. Getty's Republican convention week. Looking ahead to this. Seeing what the president's been saying you know my my take going into this this. Particularly the president's speech the main speech on Thursday is going to be Dr. the president has been warning the actually in scranton the other day he compared himself to a wall like the wall. Got Him wanting to build a wall. A wall between the American dream and the complete and total destruction of the greatest country on earth. I think. That this convention speech may just make american-carnage look like morning in America we should note that the Republicans are telling us it's going to be optimistic note that's the that's the reason. That's the free spin and you look at the president even this morning is being renominated without any objection a grand total of one delegate went to someone other than Donald Trump through this. Is Bill Weld is wonderful well, delegate and Mike Pence is being renominated by acclamation. There is no no that internal dissent none of that. None of the typical convention storylines, even less than the Democrats. Last week in the Democrats had very little of it. This is this is this is Donald Trump's party, and that sort of the point this this convention is a lot more about donald trump and it is about the Republican Party. It's also more of a convention than the Democrats had last week because there are in person components to it, there's going to be a whole lot of trump on all four nights were told that this convention, a celebration of trump ism but I'm kind of with John that I don't see the the morning America type of optimism. Emanating from the president's rhetoric it is. It is become quite apocalyptic. And almost almost a fitting counter to what we heard last week with all the talk about voting like your life depends on it and these decisions that will define democracy and define generations of Americans moving forward. It's not like either side has needed much prodding to up the stakes of this of this election and if you remember. The president broker record for years ago in Cleveland with the longest acceptance speech in the history of acceptance speech at least of the television. but but let's let's if you don't line rick before we get to our guest, we're GONNA be talking to to Governor Christie in just a few minutes but let's let's revisit for a moment. What the president said four years ago I wanNA start just with the the line that we all probably remember the best nobody knows the system better than me. Which is why I alone can fix it. I. Always thought that line was kind of it was notable because he was saying I alone, which obviously is would cut most of the attention but the first part of it. nobody knows the system better than me it's kind of funny because. The one thing that he had going for him into that thing is that he would become the first president with exactly zero government experience. Terry never government. But he knew the system better. But that was the point John. You remember that that was about how easy it was the by politicians. That's why he's given money to Hillary is because he was crooked Hillary and he knew how to had a work in, he could fix it now and that is remembered and I remembered rightly and the other thing we remembered for is, of course, the the cheering which you're not going to get this here. Okay. So. If you if you listened to the speech and and I just want to focus on one aspect of it, which was quite prominent right near the top of the speech and it was a theme ran through it all this was a law and order speech. In I want you to listen to this. Thinking about today, but realizing that this speech was four years ago. So here was Donald Trump on the crisis gripping our nation. Our convention occurs at a moment of crisis for our nation, the attacks on our police and the terrorism of our cities threaten our very way of life. Any politician who does not grasp this danger is not fit to lead our country. So, so rick. It's hard to it's hard to think that the violence gripping our cities. The attacks on our police is he is saying That sounds like Donald Trump and twenty twenty. A words were said in two thousand sixteen. But let me play one more clip from the speed. Americans, watching this address tonight have seen the recent images of violence on our streets and the chaos in their communities. Many of witness this violence personally. Some have even been victims. I have a message for all of you, the crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon and I mean very soon, come to an end. Beginning on January twentieth. Of Twenty, seventeen safety will be restored. Okay now, even if you accept his analysis of what the crisis is, what the nature of the problem is all of that. Not Promise has been kept. It's almost like it's almost like a prophecy I mean, let's do it now. It's almost UNCANNY. I mean it's really it's really something else now of course. I think we'll hear the theme again, but it'll be blamed on Democrats you know the the violence, the the the the the we're dealing with aren't democratic cities. Dates the Democratic mayor since the Democrat governors I mean. I. Don't know it's going to be interesting I. So so that's that's that's the context. That's the context. Now, did you happen to catch this little bit of news that we broke over the weekend, which I think is just kind of a kind of a fun little item. The you see who's who is overseeing the speechwriting operation I mean basically working on. Having handed virtually every speech in this convention in Anaheim told taking a direct lead in drafting the speeches of of at least two trump's donald junior tiffany just can't make it up John you broke the news you tell us you tell us who it is cliff. Cliff Simms was a served in the in the trump White House for roughly five hundred days and left to write a tell all book called team of Vipers. Which portrayed the the West Wing in the White House I would argue quite accurately and it's it's it's the book is a good read. But. But goes in chapter and verse about the infighting and the self-dealing and the conniving of the president's top advisers, and it was one that was not received well on the White House. Obviously, the president attacked the book. Accused called sims basically a low level person that he barely knew in and said that he made up a whole bunch of stories at the book of Fiction. And then Sims actually sued the president personally a sued the president. Because the through the campaign, he said that the president was trying to stop. The book by enforcing a nondisclosure agreement any accused the president of trying to infringe on his first amendment rights now. The. I found out about this from. Some others that were working for some of the people speaking over this over this week who Kinda surprised I dug into it and Found in fact, a simms has been on team trump now for a while the bygones be bygones, Don Donald Trump junior gave me very glowing quote about about how much of A. strong supporter simms has benefit President I got another quote from Rick Grenell Praising Sims. An saying that Sims helped him in his confirmation hearing which I did not know. And and it's important to point out that since book at Riedel a description of the trump White House. Ah was he was clearly Even in the book, admiring the President himself and basically making the case that he's ill served but people around him but he's back. He's back in this pretty important role as far as I can tell you, it's a big one is his convention and it's all over there. That's a remarkable factoid of gets lost in the blur of news around everything. But the you know the trump team has never been a huge team it's never been. Particularly, Well Oiled machine you'll remember that convention four years ago it was A. Technical term. I can't say on the radio and s show or something like it was it was it was wild. It was you know the Ted Cruz is moment money trump in the plagiarism? The the new rioting among some delegates it was it was all over the place and a mess. But of course, none of it mattered because he loved him. A winning I think he had a ended up winning the presidency It's a remarkable thing and then we've got a great guest coming up John I spent. Friday out on the on what counts is the campaign trail. These days is the first time I've been anywhere near presidential candidates. Biden's Baseman in no better than that. I went to the Hotel Du Pont in downtown. Wilmington Delaware where our colleagues. David Muir, it's beautiful Cobbler Harris and Joe. Biden. I sit down. You saw it on twenty twenty last night. I was struck by a couple of things about it. I. This campaign that campaign is so worried about covert it's it is just Another level of concern of ceiling people off I was watching the interview from the kitchen of the hotel where we had set up a little viewing area didn't come in contact with the with the candidates because the campaign was worried about any kind of contact like that I thought five and Harris were very, very strong. The Biden after a convention speech where which is one of the better ones that I think we've ever seen from I. Think you said as much John. He was he was he was dialed into this interview and I think. To me at least setting. A contrast of message vision that we could hear a lot about you know the whole interview is out there. I, hope you'll watch twenty twenty if you don't go watch it but this is this is toward the end of the interview with David Muir was asking just a little bit about how he might might hope to heal the country president's job is to heal. To Heal. This country needs healing. I'll be a president who tells the truth who takes responsibility, and who in fact invites the opposition to come to the Oval Office settled problems together so Look these aren't controversial. Sentiments in fact, that was one big theme of much of the much of the week that was hitting. Similar sentiments from the from the stage but in the trump, it sounds different and. It the hope in Biden world is that they can keep that and it's not let the running a positive campaign or. Clearly GonNa wire-to-wire talking about sweetness and light but that difference in tone of of trying to unite I'm interested to see if if president trump you're gonNA tents that this week because it's not where he most naturally agile as a political being. The president hasn't met with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for ages. And when he last met with her as you remember, she walked out. So of the meeting. So This is not been a president who was invited the opposition sit down in the Oval Office and solve problems together I mean there were a couple of moments where he did that there was that brief Chuck Nancy phase if you remember for. Whom the fall of twenty, seventeen they were. You know they they they gotta deal on the debt ceiling I mean. This is those were. That proved the rule. There's also I along I think some five thousand word. Piece in politico recommend everybody to take a look by Tim Alberta very very smart. Analyst specially of all things Republican us He came to us for National Review Right is not where he was B before before political or Republican Party. He's got a very, very savvy take on the at the beginning so. So so you know he's somebody comes from a bit of a conservative background himself in the and this is what this is what he writes. Swede one quote here looking. Pretty good can be safely said as his term in the White House first term in the white. House draws toward closure Donald. Trump's party is the very definition of a cult of personality. It stands for no special ideal possesses no organizing principle. It represents detailed vision for governing filling vacuum is lazy identity based populism the draw from the lowest common denominator It's if it agitates the base lights up a Fox News Chiron with its serves to nate sturdy real Americans from delicate coastal elites in it's got a place in the grand old party It's it's literally take I mean he's He goes on like I said, some five thousand words talks to. Talk to a lot of people and. Tries to solve answer the question what does the Republican Party Donald Trump's Republican party but it stand for can you gain any? Can you see any? Rick in terms of of the the selection of speakers over the next four days. There's a lot of trump of the I. think there's a lot of highlighting people that have been made famous or infamous during the trump era either through cable news or you know interesting little little incidents along the way there are some rising stars. There are people that that the the party would hope to showcase in a time like this we may have some little preview of twenty, twenty four, but it's not. It's not like conventions that we've seen before it is very, very trumpy from start to finish. Well. Let's let's go to the guy that can actually answer these questions for us. Let's go to friend of the PODCAST ABC News Analyst. Former governor of New Jersey former presidential candidate. Chris Christie Governor. Christie. Thank you for joining US Charles. Good joint. What does this Republican Party stands for listen the Republican Party still stands for much of what it is stood for during a lot of the last decade or war. Which is lower taxes. Smaller government except during time of crisis when it's needed to be made larger and more protective it stands for trying to make sure that we have business development job, growth and. There's some things that have changed under Donald. Trump. For certain trade has changed significantly under Donald Trump in his position on that is certainly different than the traditional Republican position on trade and on foreign policy, it is a less interventionist foreign policy on certainly the policy of George. W Bush forty three, our last Republican president. But in the main, the Republican principles still remain pretty much the same I was listening to what you rick. We're talking about before that and that's just a bunch of dribbled from somebody who's never actually been in the party. Tim Alberta. This may be good report it, but that doesn't make him a good analyst. The students I mean it's hard I mean. We can have this debate, but I don't know how you can say this is the party of of smaller government given given the absolute explosion. Of of deficit spending on pro shop, which one retarded with would you would you dot had institutions Sir job, which you've not had the government grow in size in the midst of a once in a century global pandemic that'd be. What about the last three years? Now you know John Hasn't it you know the the the fact is that the the huge growth in government through real. Growth government has been over the last five months certainly proportionately to what has happened in the last three years. So but but let me ask you about the other thing we're hearing from the President I suspect we will hear in his speech on Thursday a real apocalyptic description of of this of the stakes in this campaign and to be sure there were equally dark talk on the democratic side about trump reelection would win. But. You know in addition to saying things like the only way that I can lose if if they steal the election. He's also saying. That He actually used it. We talked about this before you got on the did he hurt himself to a wall, the somebody dead in Scranton between the American dream and the complete and total destruction of the greatest country on earth he is saying that a Joe Biden win will mean the complete and total destruction of America. Chris. Christie's coming not well listen I think what he what he means is that. We're going to turn into the country's GonNa turn into a version of the Bernie Sanders. Elizabeth Warren. View of the world, which is government should become even larger. Take over the entire. Healthcare system. and and takeover sections of the economy that they've never had possession of before i. think that is something that we're workings and most independence I'm don't want to buy and that's why you didn't hear Joe Biden saying anything John. During his convention last week nor most of the speakers of any specific policy positions the reason for that is they know that their policy positions broadly sell to General Electric. So what they did and they very well, I think during their convention was advertised Joe Biden the man as good decent honest human being which I found to be over thirty five years that I've known him. But. He has completely sold his soul to get the nomination. Remember. This is the guy who in the first Democratic Primary Bait when asked do you believe the borders should be decriminalized? Raised his hand along with every other Democrat on that stage this is a guy who signed a hundred ten page you know agreement with Bernie Sanders. About how he govern. This is someone who's picked a running mate. Care for all. Back and forth about it but for Medicare for all for the green new deal. This is become the Party of Elizabeth Warren and Berkeley Sanders and AFC and Joe Biden. This merely the vessel and certainly not the vessel they wanted but the vessel that the Democratic primary electorate stuck them with to spent a poor their philosophy into or if he's a funnel. To pour through and I think that's what the president's tried to emphasize. It's valid a worrying concern as far as apocalypse. I listened to Michelle Obama speech last week, which I thought was very well executed. And her husband speaks to former president. That described pretty much an apocalypse is donald trump is reelected. So if we're talking about a, Oculus, as my kids would say when they were in their preteens they started it. We've seen a lot of messaging from the RNC from trump campaign officials saint to to expect an optimistic convention. I'm not sure buying that yet governor but I thought that there's a couple times. Now, president trump's been asked to define his second term agenda and he just has not had a crisp answer where does where does that fit into this and do you expect this to be an optimistic week? I hope it's going to be a week where he lays out that agenda I think that has been the single biggest failing of the trump campaign so far. I said this memo to the president sixty days ago. That, the two predominant themes in the memo that I sent him as one that you have to lay out of the television for the next four years, and that's the way we turn this into a binary race, which is to contrast the. Republican. Vision for the next four years versus a democratic vision because otherwise it will be a referendum on Donald trump and no incumbent wants the race to be a referendum on them purely, and that's whether you look at Ronald Reagan, his race in nineteen eighty four with you look at Bill Clinton and his race in. Nineteen ninety-six or we look at Brcko bomb in his race in two, thousand twelve or George W Bush in his race in two, thousand four it was always a contrast against what would replace them if they were put aside, secondly, the other thing that trump campaign has failed on in addition to laying out a detailed plan for next four is you cannot run the two thousand sixteen campaign in two thousand, twenty, any campaign that runs the last campaign is a losing campaign, and so they have to do it differently this time it has to be more optimistic. And less dire on it has to be one that talks about what they WANNA do and how they want to leave the country at the conclusion of their eight years in and I think quite frankly that the trump campaign has not done well on either goes fronts and I'm hoping that's going to start to change and governor Christie because we're in convention week I I'd like to talk a little bit your perspective on on speaking at these conventions, you were the keynote Speaker at the twenty twelve convention the Romney. The Romney Convention, the Romney Ryan Convention people remember the Empty Chair. But I remember Chris Christie, and that at that speech gave of course and and you were featured last time what what are the? What are the differences that you've seen in how president trump thinks about a convention both in sixteen and this virtual convention at twenty twenty versus the more traditional Republican approach that I would assume was the Romney campaigns approach to programming convention? The campaign was more controlling I'm as you might have expected. To, have my draft of the keynote speech to the Romney people two weeks before the convention. They reviewed it. Literally. Changed. Two sentences. In, the speech gave it back to make but they got a chance to review it and also then watched me rehearse. The high command of the Romney Campaign Watch the rehearse in a hotel near the site of to also give me their input on my delivery of the speech So the the Romney campaign was very controlling that way the trump campaign. I was still polishing speech the morning I gave it. The morning for that evening they only asked me for transcript of the speech that afternoon. And always. So they could give the transcript out to the media Mike I no reaction on it at all until after it was delivered. And then the reaction I got was directly from the candidate. who called me on my cellphone as soon as I was done and so you know the trump approach the I don't know because I've not been intimately involved in the Convention Planning for Twenty Twenty. But you know. My guess is that it's it's fairly loose in terms of what people are going to be. Able to say, I think that the president generally people know the kind of things he likes to hear. Will, want to hear and they're gonNA crafter speeches in a way I. Hope that will provide some real information to people who are listening some encouragement to the people who are supporters. And at. A A forward looking vision for where they picked the country should go and you are somebody who is political supporter of the president but I know you also a friend. And friend with the first lady. French president you're you know. I it's. It's beyond the no this is not your transactional you know. Political relationship you you have a relationship him with him that goes back before he was involved in politics is so I'm wondering. What you. Fake, how you think he is reacting truly reacting not just what we see on his twitter feed. Off when he sees his sister his sister secretly taped by his niece saying some tough things about him and now we hear. Did WanNa Melania's former friend Stephanie Winston walk-off has supposedly a secretly taped conversations that she had with the first lady were the first lady disparages the president and his family on his adult children. The president has said remarkably little about any of this from niece's block to to the. To what we heard from his sister obviously, we haven't heard anything yet on this Rania latest thing. How does how does he? How does he react to? This was true we actually. Well a few things I think first off. What Mary Trump did was reprehensible. I know Maryanne trump barry very well. I know we're just swells the president. In fact, she was the person who introduced me to the President nearly twenty years ago and she is a smart tough accomplished woman in her own right having nothing to do with her brother and everyone knew she was the first female. Top assistant in the US Attorney's Office in New Jersey in the nineteen seventies. John when that's didn't happen much before Ronald Reagan put her on the district. Court. Bench in then Bill Clinton put her on the Circuit Court Bench She's an incredibly accomplished woman and and she's also very honest and direct. And? I am confident that she's mortified. that she was tasteless taste for mid public. I'm also confident that she's had very tough things to say directly to her brother overtime She's the older sister. I never known judge Barry mince words I'm sure they're both upset with that became public I all of us who have close knit families You know that there are tough thing times in family sometimes anger frustration sometimes out of motion sometimes out of pure love. I think the president and his reaction to it. John. Is Pretty much what you see is what you get when he says very little like that I'm sure this hurt him. you know? No like to hear that stuff be made public. It's one thing for your sisters say that to you privately, if you'd have an argument about it, I'm it's to hold other things for it to be public and I think what Mary trump did. was just reprehensible to judge Barry. Forget about the president. This is obviously a young woman who lost her father who Marianne Barry was clearly trying to mentor in a family that had been torn apart by litigation over the grandfather's estate and all the rest of things that we know and while she's having these candidate mentoring conversations with her niece. Options taping them and then using it for profit So I feel the person I feel worse for this morning. The worst for is Judge Barry. Who I think was horribly used in the circumstance and is now being embarrassed publicly because. She's now has greater notoriety because her brother is the president. I hope that the thing we're hearing about that tape recordings of the first lady are not true. For the very same reasons and and Malania herself isn't even more private person than. Judge Barry. I'm has been over time. So it's a shame. It's a distraction. I don't think the public quite frankly really cares about it. John. I, think they know they've been problems inside the trump family that's been pretty well chronicled and I I don't think that's going to determine. Anybody's vote the people who agree with what? Is, Berry said on that tape are probably already decided not to vote for Donald Trump and vice versa, and I don't think anybody who's undecided at the moment will decide the race will deci based upon these tapes or any tapes that may turn up of the of the first lady. All Right Governor Christie it's it's always it's always great to talk to you. Thanks for coming on. I'm sure we'll be talking every every day this week including on the broadcast absolutely looking forward ABC, news lacked tonight and the network broadcast and. For to being up there masking up with rahm Emanuel sit. There we go. Here we go. All right. Governor Christie I appreciate it. All right well, that is all the time we have for powerhouse politics but rick, we are here every day this week. So we will be back tomorrow with with another special guest. Thank you listening.

DNC, Day Two: A Look At The Democratic Party Platform

DNC, Day Two: A Look At The Democratic Party Platform

"From, NPR IN WB, you are Boston. I'm Meghna Chakrabarti, and this is on point modern party conventions are all about making the case for their presumptive nominees. That's why last night it was plaudits all around in day one of the Democratic Twenty twenty virtual convention. But Biden, the mayor is also the vehicle for the set of ideas, the vision of and four. America advanced by the Party itself. In other words, it's the platform. The presumptive nominee stands on that tells voter what voters would have potential Biden presidency hopes to achieve, and on that point last night, it was Joe Biden's former primary rival Vermont senator, Bernie Sanders who said many of the ideas before for just a few years ago were considered radical on now mainstream. Interesting that a little earlier in the DNC's first night Republican John Casick insisted that Biden wouldn't turn sharp left. So what does the Democrats actual platform reveal? That's what we're going to dig into today and to help us do that Kimberly Atkins joins us. She's senior editorial writer for the Boston Globe and she's in Washington. Hi there kimberly. High Magna. So I have got the party platform right here in front of me and I know you do too it just some of the sort of chapter headings I think a quite quite revealing year starts with protecting. Americans, recovering from the covid nineteen pandemic of course, building a stronger fare economy what else stands out to you. Yeah. This is sort of you know the broad you're talking about Joe Biden talked about the soul of America. This is sort of an outline of the soul of the Democratic, party. With this platform, of course, it's not it's not a binding document. In any way, it's not a law and it's not a nobody is forced to do all the things laid out at a in it, but it's sort of an expression of values. So yes, this year fighting the pandemic is front and center. That's the first item in here and it goes right into. The economy and healthcare which are natural offshoots but it also has gives a lot of attention to criminal justice reform We know since in the wake of George, Floyd's death at that has been a focus of Democrats and also some things that we have seen in recent years such as climate change. But as you said, Senator Sanders is right things like that Environmental Justice climate change is getting continuing to get a broader place in the platform as the more progressive ideas come through. So it's a little something for everyone. Interesting right because we see here. Combating the climate crisis as you're saying, environmental justice creating twenty century immigration system, which is something that both parties have been talking about an ad nauseam. So perhaps, not all that. Distinctive they're world class education in every ZIP code. So I mean, this grab bag approach is pretty typical for. Party platforms in most presidential election cycles. But but just let me hear a little bit more from you kimberly the assertion that Senator Sanders made last night about the mainstreaming of formerly radical ideas. Do we really see that here in in many or or most of the document? I think we I think we see it in some and these changes are incremental and it feels maybe even slower since we only get one of these every four years. But. Certainly when it comes to climate change talking about healthcare. But one thing that you continue to see this year in particular whereas last year, I remember being in Philadelphia and there was a real tension between supporters of our four years ago that there was intention between Hillary Clinton supporters and Bernie Sanders supporters and it was you could feel the tension when it came to the nomination itself. What we're seeing this year is a lot of Democrats saying you know at beating Donald Trump is job one. So I will support Joe Biden if that means beating Don Donald Trump that means I I I'd support a pencil it meant beating Donald Trump. But where we're seeing some push is with this platform in a way, this platform is getting increased attention from people who want the Democrats go further when it comes to things like police reform and criminal justice reform, they want them to go further and adopt things like Medicare for all instead of just offering a public option to obamacare. So this is a place where I think the people who are on the progressive side of the party are still looking to get more action even after Joe Biden is elected, the presidential election is just step one they're looking for a lot more. Interesting because you pointed out healthcare that was something. I was just going to ask you about because just underscore that the public option is in this platform and Medicare for all very clearly is not and of course, that was a central aspect of Bernie, Sanders campaign and yet yesterday he went out of his way repeatedly to say, it doesn't matter that he believes that they're actually bit bigger things at stake. Yes. But there are a lot of Bernie Sanders delegates a lot of people who supported him. Who are have already announced they're going to vote against this platform in part because Medicare for all is not a part of it. So we are seeing that push on policy Bernie Sanders again. Bernie Sanders endorsed Hillary Clinton for years ago in Philadelphia but that didn't bring all of his supporters instantly on board. We're seeing that same kind of energy happening here and we're certainly seeing it also in places like climate change criminal justice reform is interesting because even this platform in some places, it is less progressive than Joe Biden's own position in in climate change a Joe Biden set some benchmarks to meet by by twenty thirty five where that years ahead of the benchmark set in this document. So. We're seeing a lot of things all over the place, and so again, this isn't this document is finding in any way but clearly important these folks want the Democrats to speak on this and embrace these the embrace all of these progressive policies as mainstream. I take your point that the platform is isn't binding in any way but I'm thinking about how it reveals where the energies of the party lie right because for example, in the two thousand sixteen Republican platform, there was a lot of conversation around. The. The the appearance of Ukraine in the party platform there. So there's sort of gave us a window into some of the thinking. Of the political priorities of the party. But can you just tell me a little bit more about how that about the climate piece that you just talked about because it's quite surprising that the Democratic Party platform wouldn't be even as aggressive on climate as their presumptive nominee Yeah, I. Mean It really goes to show how Joe Biden. Since securing the nomination since becoming the presumptive nominee really has been listening and trying to build as big a tent as he possibly can to bring everyone on board to build that type of unity it shows how people like Elizabeth Warren has been one of his key. Allies in advisers throughout this process, they've talked a lot and he is being he is moving to the left on some issues. Like climate change and embracing a faster time line to impose some of these. Some of these policies to reduce carbon emissions to to do other things at the the progressives are pushing for. But on other things like health care, there is less of a movement. There is not fully embraced Medicare for all even though in polling. In an increasing number of people are either supportive of Medicare for all or at least are willing to take a look at it. That's probably driven in part by the fact that so many people have lost their health insurance coverage during the pandemic because they have lost their jobs. So you're seeing the the campaign, the Biden campaign trying to be somewhat nimble here, and it's a lot different is easier for a campaign to make these kind of changes than for the entire Party as a whole represented by the committee that puts this huge massive of platform document together. It's a little harder for them to to move as quickly. Okay. So Kimberly, if you hang on here for just a second I'M GONNA turn back to you frequently through this hour as we sort of zoom in on three. Specific. Planks in the party platform about the economy about criminal justice reform about healthcare. So let's first start with the economy and joining us now is Brad Delong is a professor of economics at the University of California, Berkeley and a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research. He was Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Treasury. For. Economic Policy from one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, three to nineteen, ninety five. So in the administration of President Bill Clinton Professor Delong Welcome to on point. Welcome I'm glad to be here. So first of all, what, what do you make of the the economic recipe that's put forth in? In this Democratic Party platform the platform basically. Calls the trump economy of failure and put forth a lot of ideas on what the Democrats would do instead are they the right ideas I think broadly that they're the right ideas I mean there's no doubt that trump made an awful lot of promises about the economy that he has not kept. He said his tax cut would materially boost economic growth by BOOSTING INVESTMENT IN AMERICA AND Yet even before the corona virus plague had hit that was a complete failure at had not boosted investment in America. The people who got the tax cut had not used it to boost how much they were spending on investment goods on building factories and installing machines but instead had used it all on other things. trump managed to destroy our negotiating leverage with China on the first day of his. Presidency by vetoing the trans-pacific partnership, which was to give us a powerful group of allies for common negotiations with China. end even before the pandemic hit, the trump economy was not doing that well, given the state at which the state of the economy he'd inherited. and. Of course, now, everything's falling apart and I think the Democratic Platform is the right road to get the economy working again in an equitable growth sense not just extremely high values for the stock market not just large profits, but instead broad-based wage increases and full employment. Okay. So when we come back Brad will we'll talk about some of the specifics in this economic portion of the Democratic Party platform. So Brad, delong and Kimberly Atkins standby, we are looking at the ideas set forth in the Democratic Party Platform. What's in it? What's not in it and how realistic are the promises being made care? So we'll be right back. This is on point. This is on point I. Magnin Chalker Bardy, were talking about what's in the platform of the Democratic Party specifically planks on the economy on criminal justice reform and on healthcare what is the party promising or say it would like to do in the event of a Biden Presidency and how realistic is it? I'm joined today by Kimberly Atkins and Brad Delong as well and it was interesting. Last night in the first night of the Democratic Virtual Convention that Paul, these issues of policy actually weren't really front and center in the. Variety of speeches that we heard. But of course, the exception being Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders I mean, he almost had the policy speech of the night. So for example, here is a moment where Senator Sanders talked in more detail about the kind of economic policy that he says the presumptive nominee would support. Joe Supports raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour. This will give forty million workers a pay raise and pushed the wave scale up for everyone else. Joe will also make it easier for workers to join unions. Create weeks of paid family leave fund universal pre-k with three and four year olds and make childcare affordable for millions of families. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders last night in the first night of the Democratic National Convention. Brad Delong respond to these specific aspects of the Democrats economic plan here I mean. Bernie Sanders went through A. Laundry list. There are all of these things you think essential for. Realizing the vision that the Democrats would have for the US economy. I'd say that the smart money in economics now is on the view that raising the minimum wage substantially is probably the best thing you can do immediately to rebalance the distribution of income away from the what we've seen over the past fifty years when the rich have gotten much much richer while the middle class and the poor have seen their standard of living barely edged up at all. And now looks like all of the fears raising the minimum wage will discourage. Firms from hiring. have been at least at levels of the minimum wage were contemplating more or less completely false. Yeah. That twin the minimum wage is very low firms. Think we can cut our wages and yes some people will quit and the rest of our workers will be stressed but organization can go on with a higher minimum wage. They don't have that option and so when they hire someone they say can this is what this someone's doing worth more than I'm paying. As opposed to. If, I can cut the minimum cut mother wage I'm paying them a bit. Then I can extract a lot of money from the workers who are already working for me who don't really have other options to leave. Brad, if I may ask. I read an article. Maybe from Vox. Year or two ago. That reminded folks that you at one time called yourself a Ruben Democrat, would you still call yourself that D-, right. I'm very proud to have worked for Bob Rubin and I think he's a very smart man who's done an awful lot of good for America. The reason why I ask is because so that that that label it Evokes. One's mind market-friendly policy sort of centrist Democratic approaches to to governance and managing. And require. Republican partners right. Let's go back to what you were talking about earlier about the public option versus Medicare for all. yes. The Platform Rukum calls for not for Medicare for all but for a public option but everyone writing that platform everyone in the democratic policy community has learned the lesson from Obamacare, which is that. Even. Moderately complicated systems that run by the government work. If there is Republican by it, if Republicans decide they want to destroy something the government's doing they can do so very easily if it's even moderately complex heads perhaps a public option is the best way to increase healthcare coverage and make our healthcare system better I think it is but I also know that a public option will Work if there is substantial republican buying. If say people like Mitt Romney, who did Obama care for Massachusetts five years before obamacare passed are willing to step up win and say, well, this is the system I had. Let's take it nationwide. Let support it without Republican buying. You need a simple system that can't be monkey ridged and that's Medicare for all. So us, Ruben Democrats still have our own policy preferences but we're well aware they won't work without settling some Republicans support. So, the platform calls for a public option, but everyone's aware that if we can't get bipartisan Republican Bienne on that. Then the way forward for advancing health care has to be Medicare for all. Really. So the way forward has to be the less the less centrist. Sort of. Centrist things only work with faith. and cooperation to make the moderately complex systems work. If the moderately complex systems don't have that and we need to go back much simpler. and much less vulnerable monkey wrenching systems We need to go back to things like Medicare, social security. I would have said, go back to the post office. These days like even the post office is not immune from monkey wrench. So it sounds like really you're making wh what amounts to a political argument for the economic policies in this platform? No, it's a policy implementation argument. it's that. The president's job is to take care that the laws be faithfully execute it if Republican president will not do that. Will Not accept that his job is to be our employees putting into practice the laws that Congress has passed but instead to break things. Then, we need to make sure to design a system in which breaking things as difficult as possible. Kimberly I said You'd want to respond to what you're hearing. Brad Delong say. Yeah you know I to to the issue in a sort of broaden this a little bit to to give people an idea and and to get back to your point that yesterday didn't really feel policy focus with the exception of Senator Sanders speech The convention is trying to accomplish a lot of right including. Telling as many people as possible, it's okay to vote for Joe Biden. Even if you support Medicare for all and that's not in the platform, it's okay to vote for Joe Biden. Even if you're a Republican it's okay to vote for. Joe Biden. For for a host of reasons, even if he's not your guy that was a almost explicitly stated by people like Michelle. Obama. He's not perfect but these guys we've got, and so I think that is what you are seeing this dance here right? It's. It's very. Daunting to try to convince Democrats some. Democrats to put something like Medicare, for all in the platform knowing that it could potentially scare off some other folks or seem as if it's going too far to the right and there have other people who say just as Brad is saying, well, this is this is the game because we know politically something else is not going to happen. We're not going to get some sort of compromise that's the. Big political lesson of Obamacare vote. A lot of folks thing that brock. Obama when he had the political capital of of a a big win historic election win when he had a democratic control of Congress that they should have gone further. But instead, they saw the republican buying it never came the Democrats lost their supermajority in the Senate, and that is why you have the system that Republicans have been able to dismantle ever since so. The discussions I was in at least in December in January of nineteen of two, thousand, eight, two, thousand, nine were that this thing is Romney care. This thing is Romney's flagship initiative. We propose that we get buy in from Romney and from thirty Republican senators and we truly advanced the idea as Barack Obama rose to prominence by saying there is either not see blue America or read America but Purple America. The obamacare plan as was set out was supposed to be the purple America. Consensus plan what Mitt Romney would have tried to pass in two thousand nine had Mitt Romney beaten John McCain. The Republican primaries they would come President in January twenty first two, thousand nine. But the fact that we got zero. By it not from Romney, not from Susan Collins, not from McCain not from all the Republicans who put themselves forward as bipartisan, centrist and reasonable amount that taught those of us in the Ruben wing of the Democratic Party, a very hard lesson. which is indeed that we can put forward the PA the centrist policies we think are best but we should be well aware that when implementation comes around, we may not have any partners to our right to make sure that even moderately complicated things will be implemented in a way that gives them a good chance of working. So just one or two quick questions for you Brad I'm wondering if. Voters see the same dynamic at play as we're discussing here, and the reason why I ask is because for example, I was looking at. CNN poll and I know that there's some concerns around polling. Continuously but a CNN poll that was just put out a couple days ago and digging deeper into to some of the polling questions they asked voters who registered voters who they think would be better in handling a variety of issues response the krona outbreak occurred virus outbreak healthcare, racial inequality, foreign policy on those four things, Biden. Won The majority of the voters responses, but on the economy who would better handle the economy. President trump got fifty three percent approval rating from the from the voters or fifty three percent said they would he would handle the economy better forty five percent said Biden would I mean if you're a? Biden. Campaign Person Right now don't that numbers shouldn't those numbers concern you. Well. Those numbers always concerned Democrats because those numbers have been stable. Over the past forty years or so that people somehow believe that Republicans are to be trusted with the economy. I'm it's their brand. Even though when you actually look at the numbers. Times when Democrats have been president and win Democrats have controlled Congress have seen much faster economic growth and significantly faster and larger reductions in unemployment. Then times when Republicans. have been an office and have controlled veto points and you know we scratch our heads about this I because of the very strength of the relationship the economy does so much better under. Democrats. Than Republicans than even people like me who think democratic policies are better have a hard time understanding why the gap is so large. And second given this very long history. Now, dating back to before Herbert Hoover in which putting a Republican in control of your economy Well you tend to get things like the Great Depression under hoover or you tend to get things like the great mismanagement of regulation under George W Bush that gave us the great recession of twelve years ago why this continues the brand My view is because some of all you people in the media who every day use the value of the stock market as kind of a scoreboard for what how the economy's doing. And you know the stock market is a nice thing. But the stock market is the wealth of a relatively small, highly concentrated class. Of Americans. It has very little to do with underlying sustainable trends of real wage levels or salaries of investment which are the indicators that people ought to be. Looking at. I think at the nightly news and all the Cable News you had not the stock market poked and your eye every hour. But something about wage growth through distribution or salaries are working conditions that fifty-three might melt away very quickly. It might not. It's hustle. Brad I am not going to be defensive about that because I absolutely agree I am very cognizant that in the in the NPR news cast before the broadcast of this very show the first item in the NPR news cast is. The opening numbers on the Dow I. Hate it. I mean roll respect. My NPR colleagues I I do not think it helps anybody to to have our. Cortisol levels amplified every hour due to like the Roulette game of the stock market completely agree but but I. Go Go ahead go ahead. We'll know especially since the stock mark, there are actually as my old teacher Olivier Blanchard at mit used to say the stock market can go up if things are better if people expect higher wages and profits in the future and the stock market can go up if people get scared if people get scared and our and our willing to buy bonds of various kinds and so interest rates drop. and so there's a stock market goes up on good news possibility and a stock market goes up on bad news possibility. And certainly, since March, it looks very much like we've been seeing the second that the United States is response to corona virus has been oceans oceans worse than those of other North Atlantic and rich East Asian countries Economy's going to be depressed for quite a while while other countries recover and yet the stock market's doing fine. You Know Brad. You've actually a opened up a a an avenue of conversation that I? Wish we could go down because but unfortunately, just run out of time with you because we've got to move on to other aspects of the platform I will just add this one note. Certainly. The media ought to be responsible for a lot of how information is spread Brian prioritized in this country. I would also say that perhaps another reason why the Democrats lose on these economic numbers in terms of perception of the economy is in fact. Just a thought here that for example, economic policies coming out of say the Clinton administration didn't really work for some if not a lot of Americans. So come back on the show sometimes Brad. Discuss, we can discuss that. Defense, of Clinton policies have being the best possible at the time. I would love that, but I'm just trying to cram into much this hour. So I'm going to have to say goodbye to you Brad Delong professor of economics at the University of California Berkeley and deputy. Assistant. Secretary of the Treasury for economic policy from one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty to ninety five. Thank you so much now, Kimberly Atkins, we have to take a quick break here. When we come back, we will talk about criminal justice and healthcare in a lot more detail but what's promised in that democratic twenty twenty platform so we'll be right back. This is point. This is on point Meghna Chakrabarti. Tomorrow we're going to be talking about the people who would be surrounding. A would be president. Joe. Biden it. Should he win the general election in November? So for example, what do you want to hear from Senator Comma Harris at the Convention tomorrow? Of course he's she is. Biden. Selection for his VP nominee, who else do you think ought to be in a putative by cabinet share your thoughts with us at six, one, seven, three, five, three, zero, six, eight, three. That's where tomorrow's show today we're talking about what's in the Democratic Party platform what the Democrats are promising as party what's realistic? What's not? You know most of the conversation about that in last night's convention came from Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. So here is Senator Sanders talking about criminal justice reform. The help. Our broken criminal justice system. Joe. will end private prisons and detention centers, cash bail and the school to prison pipeline. And to heal the soul of our nation. Joe Biden will end the hate and division trump has created. He will stop the demonization of immigrants the coddling of white nationalists, the racist dog whistling the religious bigotry and the ugly attacks on women. Joining us now is Britney Passionate Cunningham she's an activist and founder of love and power works a consulting. On culture, and justice, he's also a former fellow at Harvard's Institute of Politics Brittany Welcome to point. Hello So you heard Senator Sanders, they're sort of lay out the list of some of the aspects of what a Biden presidency we hope to accomplish. Is it enough for you in terms of criminal justice reform. Well. I certainly think that these things are a good step and we have to remember that just a few years ago people were not embracing holy. The ideas presented at in that speech last night and some of these presented in the party platform things like ending cash bail things like closing private prisons have been pushed by grassroots activists and the conversation has shifted in such a way because of their efforts. To. Actually bring us to this point but most certainly, there is a long way to go private prisons make up just a small proportion of the number of places that incarcerate Americans every single day, and until we actually reach a place where we are fully abolishing those places, we still have work to do there needs to be much more effort in rolling back the deep damage of the war on drugs repealing the ninety four crime bill will be a critical step for a Biden Harris Administration as well as a more immediately decriminalizing marijuana in the party platform we see. Them. Speaking about building a pathway toward that. But we believe that there is much more that can be urgently done as has been demonstrated by a number of states. At this point we also believe that there needs to be deeper investment in the things that keep communities healthy and I know that we're taking this conversation piece by piece because I make some more understandable and digestible, and that is the right thing to do. But I'd be remiss if I didn't help us recognize that talking about criminal justice talking about police violence is connected to all of the other. Things that we are talking about that it is deeply connected to the economy to immigration, and so much more. We have to recognize that closing the wage gap and getting people into a fair and equitable housing. Hopefully, they all more and more of is a pathway to end the over policing in communities because communities are being built to be healthy from the ground up. So all of these things are deeply connected and I think the ways in which elected officials treat them as deeply connected moving forward here will be critical to US actually making progress on this very important issue. Yeah point taken and in addition right now, we're living in a world where all of it is even the connections are laid bare even more by virtue of this pandemic, right so so I really do take take your point very well, Brittany. Brad Delong a little earlier say that because of the political realities of this moment vis-a-vis the Democratic and Republican parties that he feels that. The biggest most boldest ideas from the progressive left of the democratic. Party or the direction to go you know what's interesting to me is that in the area of mass incarceration in particular, we did have a moment of what seemed to be emerging bipartisan support that we were just putting too many people for no reason in prison in the United States. So. To me, it seems like this is one area in which the. Most boldest proposals should be the ones that the Democrats are pushing because Austin. Some across the aisle support here so Let me just be frank about this. Are you a little disappointed that you're not seeing? The list of things that you just walked me through. I am but I fully believe in the possibility and probability of evolution not just because we've seen Folks on the ticket at all levels engage in that kind of evolution. But because we seen the people really push them there. When we look at things like the breed vacuum seen activists from all over the country from grassroots be very clear that defunding the police is not just a chance that it can actually be seen in policy and that it is not the scary vision of Batman or Gotham rather without Batman rather it is a wholesale reinvestment in our communities from education to housing to healthcare to social services, we need to make sure that people are getting the precise and a supportive transformative care that they deserve. So that our communities our whole from the ground up. I fully agree with Brad that there is a direction to follow here and being unafraid to do. That should be the headline of the Democrats. I think that there is again a lot of possibility that that could be happening. Even if it's not happening at the party platform, we're seeing people push from the inside and the outside, and frankly that's what democracy is made of. So I don't spend a lot of time saving about my disappointments. I spent a lot more time thinking about how we can get to work and how we can actually turn hope into a real results for everyday people who need everything from a fifteen dollars minimum wage to the decriminalization of marijuana. Well Britney packed Cunningham founder and principal of love and power works at a former fellow at Harvard's institute, of politics, thank you so much for joining us today. Thank you. All right. Well, we wanted to save enough time to talk about healthcare. Of course it's a defining issue for the Democrats. Here is what Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders said about healthcare last night. While Joe and I disagree on the best path to get universal coverage, he has a plan that will greatly expand healthcare and cut the cost of prescription drugs. Further. He will lower the eligibility age of, Medicare, from sixty five down to sixty. Well joining us now is congressman Ro. Khanna. Is a Democrat representing the south and East Bay regions of the San Francisco Bay area and he in fact voted against the Democratic Party platform on Saturday and he joins us from Washington. Congressman welcome to the point. Now thank you for having me. So is it the lack of Medicare for all in the party platform that led you to vote against it? Yes it is as you know met Medicare for all was part of our platform until nineteen eighty and at this moment in our country when millions of people are losing their jobs but we should say that losing his job doesn't mean losing your healthcare I believe we have to go back to the platform that was. Their post Truman. And so But then you heard also a the the the notion that expanding the public option even though it may not be palatable to the progressive left of the Democratic Party. It's something that obviously Joe Biden is willing to stand by and that those key voters in the middle. That the Democrats, need to grab in order to win November that they might be more likely to support it is that. Is that is that not a viable or a convincing argument you? Well, there are two different things I mean I'm fully in support of Joe Biden and I do agree that his public option plan is better than the status quo. We can to support him, but that should not mean that are part of Bandon goal which has been the gold since after group of making sure that medicare expanse to everyone and we can have Joe Biden running on. But still have a party platform that says the goal should be a medicare for everyone and expansion is Bernice. It doesn't have to be all like want. It can start by going to people down to sixteen, Fifty five and then eventually cover everyone. Yeah. So can we talk about that a little more congressman because I don't think it's actually being discussed enough this idea of lowering the eligibility aid age, of Medicare. Down to sixty and that would capture a lot of people. Is that. Is. Tell me tell me more about why that That's that's in this platform here. Or. Even Bernie Sanders is Medicare for all plan calls from transition and it happens over four years I'm her Bernie Plan. You would have Medicare. I extended the people down to fifty five and forty, five, thirty, five finally in the fourth year everyone is covered in Copenhagen has said he's willing to extend Medicare two people sixteen over I. think that's very strong for step in getting Medicare to everyone and Why? Bernie Sanders highlighted that aspect of Joe Biden's plan last night. and. So tell me a little bit more than about just even this first incremental step of lowering it to sixty How would that be done? There's going to be forever the question of paying for it. The. Argument is simple I mean we we currently pay for Medicare and this will. Allow people who are over sixty to be enrolled automatically in Medicare. Now, they still can have supplemental. Private Insurance. But if anything I think this will lower cost because Medicare is cheaper than a lot of private health insurance plans, and it will end up lowering costs a lot of businesses, a lot of employers. And we will be able to to pay for it with partly the employer tax that is currently on. Every employee for Medicare. Well overall comes from one last question for you here. What do you see in this platform? What Vision for America do you see Democrats trying to advance here and then do you believe it's a realistic one? The platform is vision for prioritizing the working class in the Middle Class I. Mean we've seen the last thirty years Productivity is increased by seventy eighty percent but worker wages have only increased by eight percent. You've seen a lot of the wealth creation benefit the top benefit, the coast it has left out a lot of the middle of this country it's left out a lot of minority communities. What Democrats are saying is it's time to rebuild on Konami with a consideration for those communities and people who have been left out and to prioritize looking middle class again, and I do think that's realistic. And I think it's going to resume. well, representative Ro Khanna is a Democrat representing the south and East Bay, region of the San Francisco Bay area. Thank so much for joining us today. Thank you really appreciated. So Kimberly Atkins appreciate your patience in. Sticking with us this hour and listening to all those voices here. SORTA. Let's take a step back here. What do you? What do you think of the diversity of views around? Around this, this platform itself to your point Kimberly, it's not a binding document. It's more of an aspirational ones. So so what are the Democrats trying to communicate that they are spiring to hear? Well I think again I think that this is a document that isn't moving as quickly as the events in the world are in the country that are affecting democratic thought and I think there are more people who are wanting things like Medicare for all that is not. necessarily. That's not in this platform not may not have the majority of democratic support or other things. I. Was doing a quick search while you were talking a Brittany and the word de-fund does not appear in this document is nothing about defunding police in all of the brief act of components that she talked about it's not in here but that has come up in the last several months. This document was four years in the. Making and so I think just because you don't see some of these policies in there it doesn't mean that it's not a part of the Democratic base and that support for it isn't growing among even more establishment Democrats will have to wait and see for that. But I think that's one thing when you have a party at this point, that is so so big. So broad in terms of the different components within it. When you're trying to put an umbrella over that? It's not always that easy. You. Kimberly as you know. I love talking about policy. So do you? I Love I love having you on here because I. Think the policies were rubber meets the road regardless of what party. But I still am very aware that last night in the first night of the Democratic National Convention. We saw what we saw was policy really being relegated to Senator Sanders, gets to talk about the the rest of the of the two hours was not about that really at all. So ultimately. The policy battles seem to be somewhat internal to the democratic. Party. But the external face that they presented last night with something entirely different. It just talk about talk to me about what what what you saw. In the first night on the virtual. DNC. I'm the first night of the virtual DNC was about the really getting across the urgency of the Democrats message that the number one job is to defeat Donald, trump that all these other things all the policy discussions can happen after that I think you're even hearing that when you're talking to two people like a Congressman Kana and Brittany and other people who are talking about these progressive policies, it's almost as. If, getting Joe Biden elected is even that's even before you get to the starting line that they are interested in pushing. Democrats. If Democrats are in the White House, they're interested in pushing them on these issues to when they're interested in hashing out these policy debates whereas before it seemed in two thousand sixteen it was sort of this deflation almost among the more progressive parts of the Party in Philadelphia. Hillary Clinton got that nomination. It seems more of determined a desire to push forward on policies like criminal justice like health care like the economy moving forward and a method message. Last night was we can all you know the party can come together and even embrace Republicans if it gets Democrats closer to that point. Try and the other message seemed that policy will come. Will come but the Democrats if they wanted to enact any of those policies, the have to win I winning focused. That's why they're message was focused also on. The current occupant of the White House as well. So get really Atkins Senior editorial writer at the Boston Globe Kimberly. It's always great to have you. Thank you so much for being with us today. Always a pleasure magna. Already, this is on point.

LA? As you know, as you know, Willie we back in back in ancient times. You would often have the gesture of the court right asong for the king. Sure. And I we did something yesterday for me. But we wanted. Nice nice. Thank you. Thought we wanted to know we wanted to take it of nights and make it even more special for Willie for Willie. Yeah. Here. It is. Really? Will. Really? Guys, have they? Teens once you put into that means the world to thank you so much. Was that right into the iphone this morning or how did you do that? Voice. No, very. Mosul about it. I really I can't really talk about it right now. But what I can talk about Willie. Is is I mean, Donald Trump who's Donald Trump has made so much fun of Beto has he he's well, some maybe somebody here Donald Trump is mocked and ridiculed Beto, let's face it. He's had a really really rough start to the campaign. Right. Look at this. Look, these polls right here came out. Head beating Donald Trump all the things that he said about the blue shirt, wear an arm waving hands all over the place standing on every car that he sent. On lunch counter better award, just absolutely flashing. Donald Trump by ten points. Fifty two to forty two Joe Biden up by six points. Fifty one to forty five Sanders up six points, fifty to forty four Harris four points, forty nine to forty five mayor Pete who have the country. Don't even know yet. Even he is beating Donald Trump forty seven forty four and Elizabeth Warren in a statistical tie with Donald Trump. That's right. Donald Trump the one that you've derided as poco Hanis and made fun of for the past several years, she's tied with you. But as you pill back the numbers Willie on a lot of these polls. One of the syncing was a coupon that came out and headed gender gap. That is just. Yep. Insurmountable. Thirty four percent of women only thirty four percent of women support. Donald Trump sixty two percent disapprove a nut. Good math. But I think that is close to twenty eight percent a gender gap of twenty eight percent that is remarkable. And if it stays that way, Donald Trump is going to get trounce. Yeah. That's even worse. If that held up Joe that's even worse than the Gabby had with Hillary Clinton among women think about that. For just a moment of women who could have been the first female, president of the United States. That's a terrible number. If you go back to that head to head poll. What's fascinating? It's. Yes. Beddoes beating the president by ten points, which is pretty astonishing. But Beddoes going to have to get to that race. And he's polling it for five six percent in his own primary. Joe Biden's whole arguments. So far has been to go directly to the president and say, I'm the one who can beat him. Well, that may be true. But it turns out there about. Seven other people who could make that case as well at this point in the race. Anyway. So I think Joe Biden is going to have to go on something more than just elected Bill. A lot of people do think he could beat him because it turns out at this moment in time. And yes, we're a long way out just about everybody running against Donald Trump could beat him on the democratic side. Adrian you look at those numbers as key player in the Democratic Party. What do you see? I president. He's in deep trouble. Joe? I mean, these numbers are terrible. This may before the election year in the off year, and he's in the mid forties. You never want to be in this position. If you're an incumbent, no matter if you're sitting in the White House, if you are in any other position in government in elected office. You never wanna be in the mid forties the stage of the game. So I I mean, these numbers are great and methodology, by the way of this. Polling was this particular poll was spot on. There was a wide swath of voters. There are some polls out there. I know that people are criticizing the methodology. But the methodology of this particular poll was spot on. If I was if I was Donald Trump if I was par scalp. I was part of his team. I would be very very nervous right now do and Susan for a lot of Trump supporters on talk radio on line in the our NC been whistling past the grave you're talking about how Donald Trump's opponents may be week to week. They're gonna end up winning any way Americans don't wanna be socialists swell. Even the guy that has been screaming for twenty years. It was social as a head by like five or six points right now. They if very interesting, they think that they can disqualify their opponents what they don't understand is that those thirty four percent of women that say they're going to vote for him. And the sixty two percent of the those those dumpers pretty locked down. They they've been consistently that way for sometime Donald Trump's going to have to do something different this time disqualifying opponent, which is what the pundits. I'll say. Yes wong? He's not gonna be able to do that in sufficient numbers. He's going to have to figure out how to grow his base something. He's never done before something that's going to be difficult, and that's his challenge over the next year. Well, hey, it's going to be very difficult challenge to meet because what we saw in twenty eight team where women were coming out to vote especially suburban women and African American women and they were coming out. And you saw the results in twenty eighteen that was just as much of that, Don. Donald Trump is it was for the Kennedy say we're supporting now, Donald Trump has basically limited him his strategy. He's not going to be able to grow his base much anymore. All he wants to do is basically suppress the other vote like he did last time, and he will go to that name calling. And hopefully that he will hope that people just won't turn out to vote and that his base will come out even stronger numbers than they didn't twenty sixteen. I don't see it being successful. But then again, I was wrong twenty sixteen Donnie just won't work that won't work because guess what Donald Trump kept saying drink, Mike coke. This is better than new coke drink it. It's the best thing you've ever had you drink this. It will it will. It will all the things that you're shows going to do it will make you better person. It will save America. And then you drink drink the cove and you find there's raccoon p. Good Morning, America. Joe, but you can't step back from that. And that's what he doesn't understand running a second time. Is four different than running the first time. So Donald Trump's going to be trying to point to everybody else out there. It doesn't work second round. Now reelection for a president is it is a referendum on that guy. Right there. Did you do a good job? Or do you need? Somebody else has he exhausted by his hatred has exhausted by bigotry has he exhausted? You by his tweets, do you really want to take a chance on another four years? I think people look at the coke the new flavored coke and say, you know, what? I'll just have some water. Joe, thanks for the tease for my show because we have a whole raccoon p segment on my shows thanking thank you for team. So I did it the the what we have to be kept. I the other thing that Trump doesn't have going from this when he's not running against Hillary Clinton. I mean that was that was the epicenter of the perfect storm for Trump. He ran against a candidate that just people pushed away. From the thing. The most important stat today is not even in that last scene in the first part of it as far as the thirty point gender gap with women because you're not overcoming that having said that I want the Democrats to be very very very very skeptical about that poll when I see pulled this Elizabeth Warren would be Trump to I don't believe that's true. Personally. I believe tomorrow the country went to the voted with. I don't know if that would happen. The worst thing Democrats can do and Willie's point is the right point eight. Wow. Everybody's gonna be running against Trump. What we don't have to do that now because any of us are going to be wrong. The message for everyone is still why we better than Trump. And this is I think a little bit of early head fake. And it's good news for Democrats. But to me, it's concerning news because the worst thing they can do at this point is in any way shape before feel confident. No, you know, the thing that pundits need to take note of everybody's everybody's upset and raised by what bar is doing what Trump's doing. He's. Eating away this getting away with that. We learned in two thousand eighteen the midterms historic midterms of biggest loss ever for the Republican party in terms of votes of big loss than the United States. You get you get away with nothing and Trump didn't get away with that then and he's not getting away with lying about the Muller report. Now bar is making things worse. His numbers have gone down already three hundred four points. Lowest ratings ever in the morning console. You're going to see after this performance by by bar on Capitol Hill. And I'm gonna see those numbers sagging, even more, Sal, I get that. I -gree with you. I also think we're in a new face where you can take nothing for granted right now. Because some things have have slipped by have happened. Have it started passing by before is without without any guardrails. But yesterday, we saw something from Nancy Pelosi who's been very measured measured about the concept of impeachment and. Teach -ment measured with the president. But a leader. But we saw something a little different. Little Nancy Pelosi the leader turning back into Nancy one hundred from Baltimore, very tough very concerned about the direction of this country. Take a listen to how she described the way bar performed when he was testifying on Capitol Hill. Speaker to these general commit a crime. To congress, and he lied to congress. Everybody else did that it would be considered a crime. Nobody is above the law. Not the president of the United States and not the attorney general being attorney general does not give you a bath to say, whatever you want. And it is the fact because you are the attorney general. So mike. I love that Nancy Pelosi just told the truth, right? There didn't say, well, we've had some people that you know, she said he lied. He did like he lied to congress. We've got at least one solid example of it that with any bus- would be thrown in jail. Correct. For perjury with all be in jail. Right. He may have lied to Chris van Holland. It just depends on how a grand jury would look at that. But, but we would still all be be sent at least two grand jury for saying what he said the cruise fan, Holland on a matter of the utmost public importance the undermining of the Justice Department's purpose for selecting a special counsel in the words of Robert Muller himself. So he has committed perjury. And I personally believe they should start looking into impeachment an impeachment inquiry. If the rule of law means anything at all, but I'm watching these pathetic hacks on the right? Some of whom used to have respectable careers. They turned themselves into nothing more than Trump in abors talking about how what bar did was correct. You look at him lying before congress and match up. What these pathetic acts are saying about bars, lying, and what they said about Bill Clinton's lying in nineteen ninety eight and nineteen ninety nine and suddenly they're sounding awful lot. Like, the man who said it depends on what you're meaning of is is they are engaging and legal Listrik semantic games. The likes of which William F. Buckley attacked Bill Clinton supporters for doing and nineteen ninety eight. Well, you know, there's a couple of things going on here. Joe that are of interest one is the we've been talking about now for over two years. How is it that so many people with pass qualifications past examples of character and leadership check all of that at the door and go into just total succumbing to Donald Trump? It's a mystery as to how many people who who know they will be tainted by Trump their association with them just dive into the tank from the other aspect of it is unwittingly unwittingly, but probably unwittingly would Bill bar has done. What the White House has done. What Emmett flood did yesterday with the release of a letter, which was a political document more. So than it was a legal document is that they keep this story going they keep it going. There's going to be more hearings is going to be months of hearings instead of instead of just sitting back and saying, okay. The thing is over. And responding with with candid truth, the attorney general chose to as you indicated. And as many of indicators Nancy Pelosi just indicate he lied repeatedly. He's going to commit this story going. I mean, this story is not going to go away for a long time now. Well, I actually think she's laid down a marker Adrian and Susan both rapid fire real quick. What's next for Democrats? When the speaker of the house says he lied, and that's a crime. I mean that seems to be a marker as to how to move forward. But what are they going to go ahead? No, look, I think she's made it very clear mak- based on her comments yesterday. What the path forward is. And we'll see if impeachment actually does take place at the very least there should be sensitive cincy resolution, but you know, if you take politics out of the equation, and you look at Congress's job, which is exercise oversight authority over the administration. It makes the Pat for much more clear, and if they're not any repercussions based on the way, the Trump administration is the end a little litany of issues, especially AG bar going in front of the committee yesterday or this week in live. Then what are we going to do? I mean, it's going to set a precedent for future leaders and feature ministration ficials that hey, we can get away with anything, and there's not going to be any sort of repercussion to follow up on. That is what are you going to do today speaker Pelosi because that's where we are. We're point where empty chairs and fried chicken is not going to cut it and say drink that you take away politics. You have a constitutional responsibility move. Fode with the impeachment hearings now to show Donald Trump that you are not going to be rolled over. That is where she is. Because eventually they're going to have to get to some form of hearing bring in Muller start, the hearings get it wrapped up and have a vote by the Senate by the end of the year, and then you can focus on twenty twenty because the strip trip and no strong action is I think really hurting their case guy. I don't see how speaker Pelosi can do anything but proceed to impeachment. She doesn't say the rightly she doesn't throw out casual statements like that and credit to Casey hunt for asking direct question. Nancy Pelosi thought about it said a crime was committed. If the speaker of the house is saying that that doesn't leave you much wiggle room going forward that was Mark. You know, I can't find you. At least two dozen Republicans saying during Bill Bill Clinton's impeachment that he is the top law enforcement officer in the land, and we cannot allow the top law enforcement officer. The land commit perjury. I agreed. I agreed. But I'll tell you what even more serious when you have the attorney general on the top lawyer in the land who is responsible for deciding who the federal government is going to indict and who they're not going to indict who they're going to investigate who are not going to investigate. He lied. Correct. Not to grand jury, but do co equal branch of government. I can think of few things that would undermine the credibility of the attorney general and the Justice department for which he works, then committing perjury in front of Americans while testifying to a co equal branch of government. It's his bad is lying before the United States. Precourt. I gotta say again I lot of. Mccray. Didn't like hearing me say this. I think you need to make take a pass on impeaching Donald Trump. I think at this point it's now a political battle between the legislative branch and the executive branch fight that out let the voters decide in this case, Mika I don't think that house has any choice. They have to impeach an attorney general who was caught on tape in front of the American people on April ninth lying under oath to congress committing perjury, which yes, even the age of Trump is still crying. Some mark. My words Nancy Pelosi laid down a marker yesterday that this is where it all stops. This is where they're going to push back. And we'll watch that play out other stories we're following this morning. The Senate yesterday failed to override President Trump's Vitale by partisan resolution, which would have ended all US military participation in Saudi Arabia's devastating. War in Yemen. The war has resulted in widespread civilian deaths, including tens of thousands of children and has caused catastrophic feminine a humanitarian crisis US involvement has not been expressly authorized by congress in a statement explaining his veto, the president said in part that the resolution is quote unnecessary dangerous attempt to weaken.

And still ahead on morning Joe with got two great reporters with two important pieces. Michael Schmidt has new details in the New York Times about the FBI's efforts to investigate the Trump campaign and NBC's Heidi Priscilla on what could be a big liability for Bernie Sanders among the democratic base. Those conversations are just ahead. You're watching morning Joe. We'll be right back. Hi, it's Katy Tur want to keep up with MSNBC while you're on the go subscribe to the MSN be daily newsletter. You'll get the best of what you've missed during this unprecedented. Era of news, text MSNBC, two six six eight six six to subscribe. To better understand the Trump campaign's possible links to Russia the FBI in September two thousand sixteen sent an agent posing as a research assistant to meet with Trump aide in London. The New York Times reports that according to people familiar with the operation. The woman who was a government investigator reportedly set up a meeting to discuss foreign policy issues with then Trump campaign advisor, George popadopoulos and asked if the campaign was working with Russia. The operation did not kneeled any fruitful information, but F B I officials have defended the bureau's activities in the month before the election saying they were both legal and carefully considered under extrordinary circumstances. Those actions now are under scrutiny as part of an investigation by the Justice Department's inspector general could make the results public later this month. This new detail has become another political flashpoint among President Trump and his allies that law enforcement, agencies and. Intelligence officials spied on the Trump campaign to undermine his chances to win the FBI has denied that there's been any conspiracy against the Trump campaign. Joining us now is one of the co-authors of that report New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt, Mike, I want to get into some of the details of this piece because it is rich in those. But let me start with the central question. A lot of people's minds last night as I read it. And as they read it this morning. How was this not spying? Well, I guess it depends on your definition of spying, the Torney general sort of saying the other day that he has an expansive view of spying, including legal spying, in the way that if the government actually has the right to be doing it that spying is not he legal others, heavy different connotation of it and see it more nefarious -ly. What this was was the FBI felt that it needed to have is in years on the ground as it used a confidential informant to speak to to Trump campaign officials, and what they did was they install the woman with this professor in England who made these attempts to talk to these individuals, and the woman herself spoke to at least one of them what they showed to us was sort of how seriously the F B was taking the problem. How two lanes they were willing to go to to put a trained investigator someone that. At knew how to collect information knew how to collect evidence could testify at a trial putting them on the ground to be there to make sure that this informant didn't go off the rails. Now, if you're a Trump supporter, or if you're Trump himself you look at this new say see this shows that the bureau was out to get the campaign. But if you're the FBI, you would say, look, this is a good thing this prevented the operation from going awry and from going too far, and what did they suspect of George popadopoulos guy? Michael, AVI, seems you know, better than anyone has been in the center of all this Russia talk over the last couple of years. Why did they zero in on him? Will they hid learned from the Australians that popadopoulos head had conversations with an intermediary of 'bout the Russians having dirt having hacked emails on Hillary Clinton? And there was a lot of concern that the. Time about what the Russians were doing in general during the election. What was their hacking about was their election interference? And then they learn about this that this campaign official may know, something about what the Russians have a, you know, against the Democrats, and they're trying to figure out are there connections here or there ties here, and it was in that environment that they took the steps that they did to try and find out using these confidential informants using secret operation here to try and find out more about what was really going on was the Trump campaign coordinating with the Russians. Now, we know today after Bob Muller's investigation that there was not direct coordination between the campaign and Russia, but in the summer of twenty sixteen the FBI did not know that they just knew that there was a lot of smoke and that they needed to dive in and try and figure out what was going on. Okay. So Michael off of what your. Just said what you just explained in offer the piece in today's times. Is it fair to say that the core of this story? The core of this story is what was Russia up to with regards to the American electoral process rather than any one individual rather than Pepe dopoulos rather than the Trump campaign. The absolute bottom line core that drew the FBI into the story was Russian interference in American election. Correct. And you can stand today and say, well, why is it that the FBI did what they did? Why was it that they threw a confidential informant? We with this investigator on the ground at the campaign officials. The problem is is that in the summer twenty sixteen the FBI didn't know what it knows today. They just knew that. There was a lot going on. They knew that the Russians had done a lot of hacking. They knew that the Russians had great ambitions to train way in in the election. They saw these odd connections between Trump campaign officials. And Russia, and they said, well, what's really going on here? And they took a series of aggressive investigative steps. Now in hindsight. The Republicans and Trump supporters are going to go after them and say that these measures were to may have been too aggressive. The inspector general at the department of Justice is looking into this issue, and will hopefully give some clarity to and we'll sort of suss out. Okay. You know, these these measures were warranted, and these weren't, and then, you know, the folks on Capitol Hill, can do whatever they want with people ought to read the piece NY times dot com. There's so much detail in their Michael Smith a very busy week for you, my partner. I hope you can kick back on the sweater and have a cold drink. Thank you, Mike. I'm running for president because we must end the epidemic of gunfire in this country. We need to take on the NRA expand background checks and the gun show loophole and banned the sale and distribution up assault weapons. That is for Mont Senator Bernie Sanders. Current take on combating America's gun violence problem. But NBC news national political reporter Howdy pris-. Bella has been tracking his voting record that paints. Another a different picture. She joins us now with her new reporting on how Sanders past views on gun control could be a potential liability in twenty twenty. How do you tell us about it? That's right. Make Bernie is really the top pick for young Democrats. But he is being greeted skeptically by some of the most powerful leaders in one of the most powerful new constituencies in the democratic base, which is the gun safety advocates. NBC news has spoken exclusively with sandy Phillips. Who is the mother who lost her daughter Jessie twenty four year old daughter in the Aurora mass shooting, and she says that she is not forgiving Bernie Sanders for his two thousand five vote supported by the NRA that gave broad legal protections to. The gun industry. Mika listen to this. She was in her home moving out of her home because she says this law helped bankrupt her family because she had to pay the legal fees, not only her own legal fees, but the legal fees of the amunition producer that sold. Her daughter's killer four thousand rounds of armor, piercing ammunition over the internet without a background. Check now to be clear Sanders, ultimately did reverse his position on this law. But she says it wasn't until three days before the Iowa caucuses when he was backed up against the wall and was essentially forced into doing it. He was being attacked by Hillary Clinton about it. And she's just skeptical and she's not alone. I also spoke with Shannon, watts from moms demand action. They're just skeptical given the late conversion that this will really be a priority for him as president Adrian, these are the types of stories that boggled the mind given the epidemic of gun violence. We're seeing. Yeah. You're right nica. And I'm glad that Heidi and covered the story. This was something. This is an issue that we really focused on twenty sixteen especially when it came to white college white college educated suburban women because as we know gun safety, stronger gun laws are top of mind to a lot of these voters, and it was hard oftentimes to get not only the media. But also, you know, frankly, voters to really take this issue. Seriously question for Heidi is do you think this time is different? Do you think that Bernie Sanders now that in a field of potentially twenty twenty one candidates is an absolute top tier front runner. Do you think that this is an issue that will be taken more seriously in might have more of an impact on his standing in? The polls going forward do think there's more of an awareness Adrian, you know, this big begin the park land students in the marches. There's more of an awareness of the gun issue. But a lot of these young voters are not yet aware of Bernie Sanders record on the issue and again to go back. To this two thousand five law. There are many touch points here. Right. Because this is also behind what's been holding up the sandy hook lawsuit by the families in Newtown. Now, they've found a workaround through the Connecticut supreme court on this. But this is a very emotional issue. And you here folks like Dan gross from the Brady campaign on gun violence who say is this law that helped usher in a deadly era of gun violence. So to be fair to Bernie, he has ultimately reversed many of his positions on guns, but he's also left a very gray area here in terms of how hard he's going to advocate. I'll give an example Adrian there was a letter that went to Senator Lindsey Graham in the Senate that said, please take up the background check legislation that passed the house. This was historic. It was the first time in a generation that we have background check legislation. Every single Senator running for president signed that democratic Senator signed that except Sanders. So there is still evidence that he is not in their minds fully advocating as hard as he can't on this issue. And so he will be pressed on it for sure. You know, what's important about this week is that? A lot of people that don't follow this closely may believe that the NRA is still the king of the hill is far as contributions co. Of course, we're going to have a reporter who did it in depth. Look at just how bad the finances have been at the NRA for years now how the top three or four leaders in the Washington D C lobbying branch of actually possibly stolen or misdirected millions and millions of dollars from part working dues paying and are a members we're going to talk about that next week. But one of the impacts of this is that the NRA because of all the financial mismanagement by the Washington lobbyists that run the national organization they were outspent badly by the gun safety groups in the two thousand eighteen campaign, and they will likely be outspent again badly in twenty twenty by gun safety group. And so she's like this matter more than ever, especially, of course in the democratic primary. Heidi principal. Thank you so much. We'll be reading your new reporting at NBC, news dot com.
