"The FBI searched former president Donald Trump's Florida estate yesterday People familiar with the incidents say it was part of an investigation into whether Trump took classified records from The White House to Mar-a-Lago The Justice Department has been investigating potential mishandling of classified information since the national archives and records administration said it took 15 boxes of classified records from Mar-a-Lago earlier this year The search is a dramatic escalation of the law enforcement scrutiny of Trump who said his home was raided and under siege He's casting it as part of a Democrat led effort to stop him from winning back The White House in 2024 Sagar Meghani Washington

Was Trump's Vaccine Decision a Mistake?

"So I want to address what Tony said, Tony has said, and I'm posing it to you listeners if you want to call in and disagree with Tony. Tony said his hypocritical for us to be so upset about the vaccine and the vaccine injuries and all that stuff. And that Donald Trump, through operation warp speed, takes responsibility for developing the vaccine. Now, my disagreement with Tony is simple. It's that Trump didn't mandate the vaccine. That's the problem. Like if people wanted to voluntarily take a vaccine that was experimental and with knowing that it may have some issues with it and they wanted to take it anyway, then that's on you. That's just like any other vaccine. But the mandating of an experimental vaccine is a problem. And I said it this way, I believe Trump was acting a good faith putting together a team to get people vaccinated because Trump believes in vaccines.

Why Did Meghan McCain Block Todd Starnes on Twitter?

"Chad McCain was a conservative. How dare you? Oh, really? Well, why would he hire a leftist like Steve Schmidt to run his campaign? Steve Steve Schmidt, the founding member of The Lincoln Project, a former McCain campaign manager. Also, a political analyst for MSD and C? That's exhibit a let's talk about exhibit B Nicole Wallace. A former senior campaign adviser, she was the one who handled Sarah Palin. She was the one responsible for literally bludgeoning Palin in the back with a political knife. And what is she doing now? She's one of the lady host on MSD and C. But the real reason she blocked me is because you see, we have a mind like a steel trap. Here at the Todd stern's radio program, ladies. So we don't forget anything here. And that's why she blocked me. You see, misses Dominic, Meghan McCain. Misses Dominick, she blocked me because I reminded the nation about her daddy's most egregious sin. Would he betrayed every single one of us. He had the power in his hands to kill ObamaCare. And while the cameras were rolling on C-SPAN, what did he do? He looked up at that C-SPAN camera, and he put his, he put his hand in the air. With his thumb exposed, and then he did the big thumbs down. A big blank you to America. That's what he did. All I was doing was asking misses Dominic to explain her daddy's political strategy. But you see, this is what the establishment thinks about all of us. You vote for Donald Trump, you're an irredeemable deplorable. You vote for Donald Trump, you're a Neanderthal.

Liz Cheney: How Do We Call Ourselves a Nation of Laws?

"Literally said that. In this scene, this CNN CNN conversation was stunning. Listen to what she said to Cassie hunt over at CNN about prosecuting Trump for January 6th. Some have expressed concern that prosecuting former president Trump would turn him into a martyr and potentially add to his political strength with a base that's follows him pretty rapidly. Do you share that concern? Do you have any concern that a prosecution would strengthen Donald Trump's political hands? I don't think that it's appropriate to think about it that way because the question for us is, are we a nation of laws? Are we a country where no one is above the law? And what do the facts and the evidence show? And certainly, I've been very clear. I think he's guilty of the most serious dereliction of duty of any president in our nation's history. You've had a federal judge in California. Say that it's more likely than not that he and John eastman committed two crimes. So, you know, I think that we're going to continue to follow the facts. I think the Department of Justice will do that. But they have to make decisions about prosecution, understanding what it means if the facts and the evidence are there, and they decide not to prosecute how do we then call ourselves a nation of laws.

What Is Liz Cheney Saying About the People Who Need to Vote for Trump?

"Now, Liz Cheney gave an interview to the talking a lot, CNN, New York Times, she doesn't really campaigning because she's going to lose next week. She told The New York Times she'd find it very difficult to support Ron DeSantis for president. If Trump doesn't run. She would find it very difficult to support governor desantis because of how he has lined himself up almost entirely with Trump. Are you paying attention are you as the media does this whole adulation of Liz Cheney? Do you get what she has become? So I said to this friend of mine who's a never trumper. I said, listen, when Liz Cheney says that she doesn't mind losing her seat. As long as Trump stays out of office, what is she saying about the American people who need to vote for Trump? In order for him to be reelected. And I mean, I was blown away by his answer. He said, she would say, and I believe he knows her and probably knows exactly her thinking. He believes that American America has been fooled and conned by Donald Trump, that Trump supporters aren't really necessarily malicious or nefarious, they're really just more about being conned. And we drank the Kool-Aid and we fell for it and she knows that. And she understands that, that's why the January 6th select committee existed to prevent Trump from being able to run for reelection.

Kimberley Johnson on How Trump Ruined Bipartisan Mainstream Media

"We you pointed this out, but it's just this mainstream media stuff just drives me insane. You were saying, I don't even hear them cover. They've covered Democrats doomed so many times. I know you're missing the Democrats and pulled ahead in generic polling. There's new polling showing Biden and Harris beating Trump beating desantis showing Harris beating desantis. And they just don't, they're so hard. They never report on that. Yeah. They're just so we D to this storyline, right? And meanwhile, like you said, I think roe is a huge thing, but I think it's not even the only thing. Like, look at the most legislatively successful president since LBJ with a 50 50 Senate. I mean, it is truly every barometer 50 year low in jobless. I mean, the jobless numbers just came out Friday. I mean, I don't know how you can spin it anymore that Biden is an incredibly successful. What do you make of the approval numbers for him because to me it's just this relentless mainstream media coverage that I don't know how we overcome it? Yeah, I mean, I think I know CNN, the guy who wants CNN is like Friends with Donald Trump. Obviously, these people who own, I don't know how many there are who own the major cable. And then obviously the big papers. You know, they're wealthy and unfortunately in some cases wealthy business owners, which prefer Republicans because they get all the tax breaks. And you know, and then they have the friendships and whatever. And I don't know the behind stories, but yeah, there's, you know, the fairness doctrine going away. Right. And 24/7 news that is reliant on views clicks and attention. I think that's where it's coming from an unfortunately people are more concerned about clicks and dollars than they are about just getting the news out. What we used to be as a country where it came to news and we could all no matter what party you were in, go to that ABC News NBC News CBS world news tonight, whatever it was.

"Question to you, congressman. What is your message to those who say, after 2016, that's it. We're done. I'm not voting. They stole it and they're going to steal it again. I'm getting out of politics. What's your message? I think the message is very important and very clear. We saw what we had under Donald Trump four years of just great leadership, holding our adversaries in check with China and Putin. And now we have nothing but a spineless president and look at inflation gas prices. We have a crisis at every corner. Donald Trump, I thought did a very good job handling COVID. So we need to get back to that Donald Trump leadership. And he can say this country. He truly can. And you need to get out there and vote in November of 2024. You need to get behind the party. The party needs to get and united behind one individual. And the only individual right now that can save this country and my opinion is Donald J Trump.

Rep. Troy Nehls Shares His Suggestions for After the Midterms

"An idea before we came on air what we should do as conservatives after the midterms, what was your suggestion? My suggestion is that we have to make a big splash in the first two years. The American people are going to give us the gavel in the house. We are going to have the speaker. So we must take care of that gavel. Years previous. You know, we've had the gavel. We had both chambers. We had Donald Trump. And what did Paul Ryan do? Yes, we got the tax cuts and job deck, but we did nothing to secure the southern border. Now the American people are paying for it. So I think it's incumbent upon lunar McCarthy to make sure that we can rein in this out of control spending, take care of the gavel and make sure that we focus on 2024. This is about 2024 right now. How have we done enough to clean up what happened in 20 20 to make sure that 2024 is in stolen? Well, I think that a lot more attention, the states are given a lot more attention to this specifically the state of Texas. I think that the Democrats aren't going to have COVID and don't bring me this monkeypox story to all of a sudden declare another national emergency where you can see then these liberal mayors and governors and county clerks and stuff all of a sudden change the rules to the voting. And that's what you saw in 2020 all in the name of COVID. So I'm hoping that these individual states have tightened up the rules and made sure that we have voter integrity. Because without it, we don't have a country.

FBI Official Transferred After Allegations of Political Bias

"If the officials transfer an FBI official was transferred after whistleblower alleged allegations of political bias and I can't say this guy's name right and I don't want to butcher it. But there is a person in a key position in the FBI. According to director Christopher wray, that was intentionally biased. It was biased on his social media. He was biased in his approach towards the Hunter Biden laptop. He was biased towards January 6th hearings or at least investigation into certain people. That supported Donald Trump, all of the above, he was transferred. I guess through the investigation, he should be fired and put some death. I honestly believe when people are in these positions that can affect other people's lives. And to the point where people will go to prison and not go to prison because people's malice, you should go to jail for a very long time.

Andy Ogles: Earning the Edorsement of Trace Adkins

"You've been endorsed by the freedom caucus. I know that Jim Jordan, Scott Perry, who's the chairman of the freedom caucus, Mark Meadows, who helped found it, who was Donald Trump's chief of staff. They've all weighed in already. They're all already helping. You've also been endorsed, I think in one of the, one of the cooler endorsement trace Atkins who doesn't get involved politically a lot, but he stepped up. How did you get trace involved? Well, you know, and we also can't leave out senator Ted Cruz. I mean, here at the end, when we felt that the race might be tightening a little bit, he without hesitation jumped in. He said, look, I need a fighter. We need more fighters like you up here in Congress and it would be an honor to endorse you. And so, but trace Atkins really goes back to COVID. You know, I refuse to comply with the mandates. I refuse to shut my community down. You know, the way I looked at it is if you're a single mom with two kids, your job was essential. If you're a small business owner, you're leasing your savings, your lives on the line, your business is essential and how dare the government. How dare the government tell you that you need to shut down. And so I refuse to comply with any of that nonsense. And because of that, trace had reached out just as a thank you gesture to say, hey, you want to go have dinner. And we started connecting and we had a concert. That first year of COVID, on the square, had over 35,000 people there. Because for me, it was about finding a solution. Look, COVID is real. I had a good friend that died from it, but I was unwilling to just cower and hide under my desk. We had to find a way through it. And that was by trusting people to make good decisions for themselves and not relying on the government to run our lives. Well,

Maricopa County, Phoenix that screwed up the 2020 election has done no progress in getting any further along at being able to actually count votes and get through an election process. You know, you've got other countries where they can literally hand count ballots and they can do it in 24 hours. Maricopa County can't even get it done in a few days and they had chaos, they had confusion, like we saw in 2020, despite all the denials that there was any election problems in Arizona that it didn't get stolen from Trump, but a big week there, and then in Tennessee, where we're broadcasting from in Memphis, Andy ogles wins the Republican primary in the Tennessee 5th congressional district.

Noel Casler Explains How Trump Corrupts Everyone in His Orbit

"People famously know that you worked on the apprentice with Donald Trump and, you know, started talking quite openly about a lot of things about him a long time ago, but you said what you're seeing from Trump's vast tentacles of corruption. Toadies on loan from Doug ducey acting sicko fans, you just said it should be very illuminating for those who wonder how Trump got away with so many crimes in his New York City days because people from New York are like, he's always been a crook. We've known that from day one, right? And you look right up through what's happening right now. You're like, oh, of course, he has somehow loyalists and people that are destroying evidence and God knows what, right? Absolutely. He's always had a skill, a 6th sense to attract men and some women around him that he could corrupt. You know, he can look into a crowd and see the kind of guys that are going to do his bidding. The dogs that hunt, so to speak. And that's what his security team was. You know, keep schiller was an NYPD sergeant rammer, who would knock down doors of drug dense in The Bronx, you know? He was the guy who knocked the door down. He went up to Trump in court and said, you need to hire me, right? And Trump hired him. And then when you're walking around with a detail of X NYPD cops, you get away with stuff in New York City, right? Because it's an impenetrable sort of wall of authority. And Trump knows that. And you know, we could probably get into it, but the Secret Service stuff seems very, I worked with a Secret Service ton tons. I did inaugurations. I did the tree lighting at The White House, all kinds of stuff, where the president was at. The Secret Service under Trump was a different Secret Service. You know, and I went to high school with Bobby engel, the guy he tried to choke in the back of the SUV, and he was like a marine kind of jarhead cop type. And that's the type that Trump will suck in. And it's almost like before they know it, they're doing his bidding. Do you know what I mean? Who is the guy? They all set out with the intention of being corrupted, but being in Trump's orbit will corrupt you by osmosis.

There's literally a patch of dirt and a paving stone with her name on it. For a tax break, it's so Donald Trump, isn't it? Right. It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous. And when he applied for the permit to have the cemetery on his golf course, for his tombstone, he wants a 16 foot high obelisk. And that became contentious at the permit meeting in the town of bedminster. I'm not even joking, right? So do you think Donald Trump would be satisfied with a paving stone with his name card? They didn't even spring for sod. If you saw the pictures, it's just I had a more elaborate thing for my cat when I buried up in the backyard.

"UFC two 75, Saturday night from Singapore, it's another stacked card with Glover to chera and Valentina Shevchenko defending their belt plus the much anticipated rematch between Shawn Zhang Wei Li and Joanna yim Jay chuck. The prelims are on ESPN2, ESPN deportes and ESPN+ starting at 8 eastern 5 Pacific fall by the main card on pay per view to order an English and Spanish go to ESPN+ dot com slash PPV and it's never a dull moment in the NFL as chef he does in fact have some breaking news here at NFL live. We'll feel the rams and Aaron Donald have reached agreement on a new deal. This really is old deal that just gives him more money. It gives him basically $60 million in a two year extension. It leaves him under contract for the three years and basically makes him the highest paid non quarterback in history. It's 95 million over the three years of the contract. You compare that to other quarterbacks. It's a big number and essentially that deal is getting done today and it ensures that Aaron Donald now will be back for the ranch. We heard the retirement talk, the speculation about whether or not he would stay or go. Well, he is staying. They've been talking about doing this deal dating back to the combo. I don't think anybody thought the deal wouldn't get done. Now it is officially agreed to and it gives Aaron Donald in additional 60 million dollars during the course of that extension and moves him into a rarefied air that Marcus spears never came close to achieving during the time that he played defensive line in the National Football League. Yeah, so if I understand this all correctly. Yeah, no, it's okay. He just speaking the truth. This is Aaron Donald, man, money. Aaron Donald now has 95 million reasons to not want to retire and walk away from the game of football. I know you caught a stray right there. So hopefully we can get you back on track. But if you could, how much does dead this deal done mean to the rams? I get it. He's the best player in football. Regardless of position. But how important was it for them to get this settled with the, I can't even call it a threat, but at least the idea of him walking away from football somewhere in the background of this franchise. Yeah, chef did we no longer brothers you've been demoted to just an appointment? Until we rebuild this relationship. Here's the thing, man. And Dan and I were all sports in the earlier today and I talked about the impact that Aaron Donald has not only the player that he has, but what you're allowed to do. From a defensive standpoint, when we start talking about rarified air like the greatest of all time and we attribute that to a defensive tackle, a guy that sees more double teams and probably have seen more double teams than anybody currently playing in the league and still have an impact on the game. I want to put this into context for people because when you start talking about him being the highest paid compared to quarterbacks in history, Aaron Donald is the reason why the Los Angeles Rams were able to win a Super Bowl. And I know that Matt Stafford played magnificent. I know how good Cooper Cup was. I understand about Jalen Ramsey and all of the guys that we talk about. But I'm talking about when you turn the tape on and you lock your eyes in on 99, the plays that he's not making as an individual that's not going in this statue, he's affecting that play and helping someone else make it and making that job way easier. He allows your defensive coordinator to get creative and put different guys in different spots with the knowing that he'll cover us. He'll make us right, even if we don't have a bad call. So you don't just pay for obviously this production. You pay for what Aaron Donald allows you to have the ability to do. And he makes you a Super Bowl contender from a defensive tackle spot. And I want everybody to just put that in context. Yeah, I mean, did Aaron Donald deserve this contract is not going to be a topic on first take tomorrow because extremely dumb. It is not up for debate. He is one of the greatest to ever do it one of the most dominant defensive players in my lifetime, but I will say this, you know, it does make life a little bit harder for the rams. Let's be honest. This is a team that is very top heavy in terms of their contracts. And as they a lot more money to those stars, they will lead to lean more on guys on rookie contracts. Players like free safety, Nick Scott, linebacker Ernest Jones who were excellent down the stretch last year need to show up this year, a player like Justin Holland through their counting down off the edge, opposite Leonard Floyd is going to have to be a contributor on his rookie deal as well because that's what happens when you pay well deserving contracts to superstars. Yeah, I also think this was an easy decision. You know, we have talked about the rams in kind of the way that they have handled the draft and for agency and the salary cap and all that. And we know at some point it's getting pushed down the road so far that they're going to be in salary cap HE double Hodgkin hockey sticks at some point. So it made sense for them to be. I mean, I agree with you that it's going to be more dependent or more pressure on those draft picks. I also think less need their general manager has drafted really well in those middle rounds. And I think this is another sign of his confidence in himself and also his player development. I think simply put this means in solidifies that the rams are the team to beat in the NFC and they are right on par with the team to be in the NFL when it comes to them in the Buffalo Bills. They had no shot of getting back to and winning the Super Bowl without Aaron Donald. I think they are now because of this the favorite. Do you know I want to make another point too? Their defensive line culture here again, my boy henny. He talked about Aaron Donald and we talk about what we see on the field, but he also talked about, I'm not going leadership. I'm going to how he impacts how other guys prepare to go about their right. They realize that it's not going they're not going to be Aaron Donald. And one guy that he mentioned to me was Asia and Robinson and y'all remember we talked about him during that playoff run and how he was against the run. That is the impact of Erin. You can be oppressed. But his coach Henry Eric Henderson talked about that, man. To be honest. Hey Shawn got to get paid too. 'cause he'd been balling. To be clear, to remind now the new deal for Aaron Donald pays of $95 million over the next three years. He is going nowhere retirement can wait for another day.

The bank was the last team to kick off their 2022 off season as OTA started today at Cincinnati. And of course, OTAs got us thinking who has the best skill to some players in the AFC Dan. I wonder if maybe Cincinnati cracks the top 5, but no one cares what I think. Let's hear what you have to say. Yeah, I think they got a good chance. Okay, so skill position group, quarterback, not included in this. It's just tailbacks, tight ends, wide receivers who's got the best crew that's no longer the triplets, okay? You got to have at least 5 with two stars. We're actually going to start down in Miami with the Miami Dolphins. They've done a really good job of surrounding tua tung by aloha and this offense with really good skill challenge. Obviously, the addition of tyreek hill, they've got Jalen waddle so they've got tons of speed on offense. I love their young tight end. And Mike is sicky. They've got three tailbacks. They're going to be a big important part of Mike McDaniels stretch game to see such a threat in the red zone being able to go up and high point the football in so many different occasions. The run game is going to be an integral part of this offense to help this skill position groups dominate. Number four, I'm going to go to buffalo. Obviously, Josh Allen, but we've got the star and Stefon Diggs, one of the best route runners in all of football when it comes to one on one. You get him in those man to man situations. He loves to be patient and then sudden. Then we've got Gabe Davis, who's a big time speedster. They add Jameson Crowder from the New York Jets. I love their tight ends. Still having Singletary as tailback and then they're draft pick James cook is gonna be a little bit of an Alvin Kamara type of tailback pass cap pass catch wise for them. Number three, Marcus, and Mina's favorite team in all of sports. The Los Angeles chargers. They've got two bona FIDE absolute studs at wide receiver. We know Keenan Allen is one of them. Mike Williams has emerged as one of the bigger big body play or big body big time threats down the field at wide receiver. Gerald Everett comes over at the tight end position Austin Eckler at tailback. Then they've got some quieter guys like Palmer and Jalen guyton who really nice players. I think you can make the case that they have 6 really big offensive pieces. The Las Vegas Raiders. They get the acquisition of Davante Adams from Green Bay in the trade. Arguably the best ride receiver in all of football. Derek Carr has never had a receiver that is even remotely close to how talented he is. Then they've got Darren Waller who I think is one of the best pass catching tight ends in football, foster Moreau, one of the best route runners in football in hunter Renfro and then Josh Jacobs at tailback is still a physical back that's gonna be even more of a pass catching threat moving forward. Number one, I think it's the team that leads the NFL. It's just Cincinnati Bengals. The triplets at wide receiver alone are bona FIDE superstars. Jamar Chase was an absolute rockstar in the NFL last year. So many contested catches, his body control is great. Then we've got tea Higgins who's become a big body threat down in the red zone mix in a physical tailback. Tyler Boyd, I think is one of the best if not the best slots in all of football and I really like the addition of Hayden Hurst, who's gonna utilize the middle of field because so much space is created by those wide receivers. That's the type of top 5 skill group in the AFC. Mina, I'm so used to dance Twitter lists, which usually just beg to be dunked on. This one I think is pretty solid. What are your thoughts? Yeah, I agree. This is a surprisingly good list from Dan. I actually agree with all 5 of the teams. I would swap Miami and the Chargers personally. Chargers just don't have as much depth and I think, you know, we got to see it to believe with Gerald Everett. And then at the top, I would put the Raiders number one. Danny made the case for me, which is they have arguably top two players at three positions. Devonte Adams, one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, Darren Waller, one of the best tight ends in this league, and then hunter Renfro is one of the best slot receivers in the NFL. How many teams can boast that they have that many elite skill players? I don't know that disagree with you. I want to hear Marcus, go ahead, go ahead, go ahead. I was going to fight with you, but you made the delineation between quarterbacks and skill position groups, but I'm with me no number one, bro I think the Raiders have to be up there, dude. Because when you think about go ahead. I don't disagree with you guys, but my point is the three receivers are so good. I get the Raiders have those two receivers and then Waller and I love the Raiders tight end packages. But there was three receivers are so good. I think Hayden Hurst is going to be put in a situation where his job is going to be easier than it's ever been and I love the fact that Joe Mixon is a better back than Josh Jacobs. That has to be a part of this conversation. Meaning the only point that I'd make for you, Miami to their chargers is the Chargers can't touch their speed. I mean, Miami speed is out of this world. That's the difference. That's why I have oh, you will put Miami head. All right, I could agree with that. That's what you're saying I'd flip him, yeah. I don't think that they have the size, the Chargers do. Okay, well, the bottom line is the AFC is just littered with offensive talent right now. We could have three other groups in there that could make healthy arguments remain included in the top 5 including Denver, at least in the opinion. We got the NFC coming up later on the show. Stick around for that. And speaking of, we got much more head on NFL live, including eagles, new star wide receiver AJ Brown, praising his new situation in Philly, this time though, he shot in the spotlight on his teammate devonta Smith. Here why Mina thinks that combo could be a massive problem for opposing defenses. One of the things that they said about the 90th 6 Olympics was it was the Olympics of the woman. Women's gymnastics, basketball, synchronized swimming, seeing all of us that were beneficiaries of title 9. The incredible example of if you invest if you give them the opportunities that this is what happens. Incredibly proud to be a part of that group of knowing that we stood on the shoulders of the Giants that had opened the doors for us with title 9. Good stuff there. Time now to read and react around the NFL, beginning with the news of Ryan Fitzpatrick for retirement that broke late last week and chef he got the exclusive from misfits magic himself and asked him how about his.

"Doctor massena is on the medical staff of suburban hospital, Johns Hopkins medicine. She wrote the book aftermath healing from the Trump presidency and is an expert on narcissism. Doctor Messina, welcome to the show. It's such a pleasure to be here, Gabe. I really delighted. We are delighted to have you now in the past several years whenever I do a show on narcissistic personality disorder, the guest will inevitably cite former president Trump as a textbook case during the show. However, this is the first time that a guest has written a book on the subject. Now, I know that using any public figure as an example of anything is going to polarize the audience. However, not every public figure has a following willing to attempt overthrowing the government at their suggestion. As an expert doctor Messina, have you found that your book steals focus from your work on narcissism? Well, I think sometimes I mean courage not to talk about president Trump. While he's a poster child, I have been in groups and they've asked me not to measure my book. So hopefully that answers your question. It does. It does answer the question. So let's start at the very beginning. Doctor Messina, what exactly is a narcissist? Okay, so narcissist and I don't know if there's healthy narcissism. There are people with narcissistic traits and there are people who have a narcissistic personality disorder. I would say Donald Trump is in the latter category. When people have a disorder, it's as if they're like an egg. On the outside of an egg on the shell, you could hit it with your finger, maybe something else feels pretty sturdy. Once you crack that, everything follows that. It oozes out. There's nothing left. And narcissists often talk about when you can get them to talk about it about feeling empty. So it's like when the egg is cracked, they sometimes fly under the radar though. And not when they're blatant as the former president or people like that. But some narcissists are most of them are very charming. They can be attractive and funny. But women narcissistically injures. In other words, when the egg does crack. That's when they're so internally or psychically bruised, people refer to narcissistic injuries often. Whether narcissistically injured, that's when the other side of them come out. And all of a defense has come out. In narcissism is characteristic of people who lack empathy. They don't really understand another person, nor do they care to try to figure out what another person is feeling. I knew somebody many years ago. And this wasn't my patient, but he was in treatment for many, many years. And he learned how to say the right things. If someone came home, he knew to say, oh, hi, how was your day? But he didn't really care. He would talk to me about it. He didn't really care. He just learned the right things that one is supposed to say, what is going to be in a relationship? But generally, relationships don't work out too well. Not equal relationships. They are really, really entitled. They think they deserve certain things and just because of who they are. It doesn't matter whether they are these things. They just think they're entitled entitled to whatever it is that they want. And when they don't get it, they often have this narcissistic injury, this crack. They lack accountability. They have a great need for control and on the other side of that coin is that they're very threatened when they lose control. They typically lie, are very grandiose. They are the best. The greatest and the best and I mean, we certainly know that the former president would talk about that often talked about himself as being great, wonderful. A very setting in rallies. Very manipulative, often haughty and arrogant. They have black and white thinking. It isn't a gray world with good and bad, which brings me an amazing defense of narcissists, which is projected with identification. But just to simplify, that means that they shift plans. It's never them. It's always somebody else. And we certainly saw that a lot in the last administration. One of the criticisms that always comes up when sighting a former president is, well, they all do it. They all do it. I must have seen this in my email a thousand times. Well, you're picking on this particular politician, but they're all narcissist. Now even in research for this show, I see that politicians are often listed as having narcissistic personality disorder or they're called narcissists and the media. What set Trump apart? Because I noticed that you didn't write a book called aftermath healing from any other administration. Yeah. There's no healing from the bush or Clinton or any other administration as you're right about that. I think because Donald Trump actually, as you pointed out, I mean, certainly there are theories about and I believe we did try to overthrow the government. But he's right on the money in terms of being a narcissist. If you look at every single descriptor, you'll find that Donald Trump does fit in the category of that description. However, I would like to say that there is a range in the narcissistic spectrum..

"And he's running down the street with an AR-15. That right there, the media took that and ran with it. They don't care about the facts. What they care about is the narrative, what they care about is the agenda. And so the Kyle raider house thing, the reason why this is now the cost celeb is nothing really to do with Kyle rittenhouse or the three gentlemen that he shot the two that died and the other one that shot got his arm blown off. What it was about is accomplishing their narrative. Period. And so this is what happens in our country, which is terrible because our justice system can not be can not be a quasi political system. Because if that's what it's going to be that people don't have faith in criminal justice. And if people don't have faith in criminal justice or any other institution, because it's used for political means that our country falls apart, but they don't care about that. They care about their agenda. And congressman last quick thing. I guess you just brought up accomplish their agenda. We all know what the agenda is. But at the end of the day, do these people actually want to live in a world like that too? I'm confused and you're in Congress and you talk to these folks, but that agenda of you can't say anything that could have possibly offend somebody, right? You can't just walk out of your house without worrying about am I doing something wrong? Who wants to live in that world? Who wants to live in a world where gas is $7? Who wants to live in a world where you can't afford things or provide for your family? Why is that agenda something that they're striving for? It's hard for me to comprehend. Even in communist Russia, the people in the Socialist Party, they did well why everybody suffered. Did they like it a 100%? Probably not if you got them one on one, but they were doing far better than everybody else. And they were doing better, not based upon merit, not based upon intelligence, not based upon ingenuity. They were doing better because of loyalty to the party. That was what happened in socialist Russia. Communist Russia excuse me. Frankly, that's what goes on in the communist Chinese party today. It's not about your ingenuity or ability or God given talent or whatever the case might be. It's about your loyalty to the party. And there's always going to be people amongst us in any society, where they will take that as opposed to having to cut their teeth and be successful on their own. And that's what we're vetting against. Congressman Byron donalds, he represents district 19 in Southwest Florida, but he actually, in my opinion, represents all of us, folks. All of us who are sort of, I think, common sense minded. We just want to be left alone. We want freedom and liberty to prevail, and I can tell Byron Donald believes that. And thank you, honestly, thank you so much for every day stepping up for all of us, mister Donald. And congressman, I hope you have a great day. We're going to leave it right there. Hopefully this isn't our last time to be able to speak to you. Oh man, I love to come back. They said we got to work out this video thing, but that's my job. I appreciate it. No problem. Thank you so much. All right. So folks, this is a superstar. He's not an upcoming. I shouldn't have even said he's an upcoming superstar. He is a superstar already..

"So she rolled her eyes. She was not happy with me, but you know, I don't care. Because the truth is, is that our country can not survive if people have to bend the knee to Evers in charge politically. Right. That's not what our country is based upon. And the very people they say they're trying to help would be the worst stricken by energy crises. If the danger hoods across the entire country suddenly had no power, no heat. No furnace is working. No washers and dryers working. They would be the ones that are suffering the most. So yeah, it's so disingenuous. I know we're up here. One quick thing I'll say. Paul Pelosi and Nancy Pelosi will not have a problem heeding their homes because I'm quite sure they have a solar panel array that Paul bill with all the money that he's made over the years. And God bless him. I don't care. Do you. But the truth of the matter is that if you don't have clean and consistent energy, if you don't have cheap inconsistent energy, poor people will suffer. 100% full stop. No doubt. And congressman, I think this leads into our next topic before we let you go. I just wanted to jump into the written house trial because I think both of these things we're talking about. The energy crisis, the written as trial, it's almost like that side, the Pelosi's the Schumer's, of course, AOC and the squad, they're full of good information. It seems like they don't look at any data or facts. And we can go into COVID on this too, right? Every piece of data in this written house trial, if you watched it, if you looked at it, shows, wait a minute. This is not a race situation. This is not even a question of self defense. It was self defense. Even the witnesses for the prosecution made it out that it was a self defense case, right? So go with the energy, too. The gas prices are skyrocketing. You can't fly planes on solar energy or electric, right? Why do they not? Why do they not look at these things? And again, is it intent? Are they just playing out intelligent? What is it? I'm firmly committed that they're trying to accomplish their policy agenda. Whether it's cultural, whether it's the political culture wars we're in, in other words, economic. They're committed to accomplishing their agenda. And anything that needs to be used to accomplish the agenda will be used. That is this Kyle rittenhouse situation. Now look, I'm going to talk about a lot of people about this. You know, I got friends who were like, man, what's he doing with an AR-15? Can I show you something to be there? Where is your mom? Where's your dad? Los Angeles. All that stuff. But people have these questions. Here's the reality. The reality is, is that the prosecution, frankly, has completely overcharged the situation because they're responding to the politics that were set by a narrative from the big from big media and from the Democrats. And the narrative that they wanted to set in 2020 is that America is irredeemably racist because of Donald Trump and that's why we need Joe Biden to be president. That was the narrative. That's what they tried to set out and set in stone. And so it didn't matter what the story was. You were going to be used to push that narrative. Kyle ray house falls into that category. You got a 17 year old white kid, in Kenosha, where they haven't, where they're having rise associated with the thing with Jacob Blake and things are burning..

"The 2020 presidential election had nothing to do with Democrat policy. It was all about all about Donald Trump and them having to restore our democracy or save our democracy and have faith in our institutions or whatever nonsense that they spewed. And it was about him not having a plan on COVID-19. That was the 2020 presidential election. No more no less. Joe Biden didn't run all policies. Joe Biden barely was barely to be seen. People are waking up to now in America. They're like, oh my gosh, we elected a man who was an incompetent who doesn't know what he's doing. And when he's supposed to have a plan on COVID, the reality is all he's doing is executing the Trump plan. And he's doing a bad job at that. So that's why he has to show he's doing something. That's why he jumps to these vaccine mandates, which are unconstitutional, by the way. And so I think what the 5th circuit just did is more to come. I was actually telling the SBA administrator because she was all like when we're looking forward to the vaccine manage to help get small businesses back on their feet. And I'm like, you don't know what you're talking about. Small business owners already have a problem finding employees. These vaccine mandates are only going to make it harder for them to find employees, which is going to further hurt our economy. But when you have somebody that doesn't know economics, but he's quote unquote in charge. This is what happens. And I think the worst part congressman is, it seems like it's not just him that doesn't know economics. His whole cabinet and his whole party don't know economics, right? You hear these people and then Joel will tell you, well you guys don't understand supply chain. No, no, no. We do. You don't, and that's why we keep having gas at, you know, I was down in Florida last week. I was paying almost $4 a gallon. That's worse than New York right now. And I can't believe that all over the country. I saw California, they were almost at $7 a gallon. That's a major problem. They don't understand the economics. No, they don't. Because they don't talk to anybody about the economics. They always talk about what their plans are. Their utopian vision, Pelosi's always talking about, she's doing everything for the children, even though outside of her own grandchildren. I don't think I can't remember the last time she's actually talked to a child. She doesn't know what she's talking about. And so this is what you have a pair of Capitol Hill. These bills that they've been pushing through this Congress, there's no debate on these bills. They come out of Pelosi's office. They drop into rules. The rules committee is the size of somebody's living room. I'm not kidding. That's how small the rules committee is. And so you're sitting in somebody's living room and cameras all over the place. The votes are already pre ordained no matter what the members from the different ranking members on a Republican side actually tell the rules committee about these bills. They vote them off there. They go to the floor and they vote him off the floor. There's no debate in Washington, D.C. about these ideas. These quote unquote bills, whatever Joe Biden's plan is, which frankly isn't a plan..

Time where you'd see men very over made up in those desert films lawrence of arabia and i was but as soon as i saw him in his costume with his props and i'd given him that coloring and all that black i thought he sort of looks like he lives here absolutely. I mean it all the frame it look like they were part of that landscape and they couldn't be anywhere else they would stand out like a source sore thumb on caliban easy. Yeah know i really appreciated the that work and it just it was. It was just so cooling. I've seen the film. I actually saw it at home. But i will say i do have a sixty five inch television so it was a good way to see at believe me and everything was just beautiful and the colors were jumping out at me..

"An envelope. That's been handed to you. I see that as two of many interpretations that could be written. But aren't there funny. Yeah then some of it gets Almost inscrutable Particularly towards the end when you have those sort of marginal intersections in crucial intersections and you have Someone who's going to turn you off. Old exercises onto new exercise becomes a bit abstract. Yeah but is there is there meaning behind. The abstraction is only so much you can puzzle out here and you have to accept it for what it is just like you accept the balloon. Yeah i mean the same thing is true of. I bought a little city which all those years ago we have to assume that the narrator is really bought corpus christi texas and is making changes to the city. You just have to take it as it is You know there's only so much interpretive. Work can do these stories our experiences. They last for as long as we're reading and then they last beyond that say you say you were reading this for the first time and you get to the last paragraph and you discover that in fact this balloon is not any of those things that have been positive but it's this autobiographical symbol manifestation. Does that then change how. You've read everything that came before that does for me. It does at this point. It did when i. When i read it to my wife and and felt the emotion for the first time in it. I'd read it any number of times before that barthelemy was very important writer for me. When i was younger felt free. You know but when i read it this time several years ago from maria and i felt that emotion it changed the the way to the story entirely for me gave the story much more weight and much more gravity. Do you think there's any contradiction in the fact that the story insists on meaninglessness the meaninglessness of the balloon the purpose looseness of the balloon. And yet it's a story. The love story And love stories are filled with meaning. It's all about the meaning right but we get a bit of that meaning at the very end is only a short paragraph but we find meaning in that maybe we find more meaning than we do in the balloon but no. I don't really see a conflict there. I don't think i do given my life. No i i. I don't see any problem. There obviously bartha did not ever construct story in a traditional way. I mean how do you think he constructed this one. Do you think that he knew all along where it was going. Was he writing towards that ending. Barthelme writes in essay called not knowing which describes the importance and the value of not knowing that of not knowing where you're going what you're writing is against the outline that the writer fills in. I am too. It's hard to say i mean. He may not have known where he was going with this. He may not have known until he got in the end. What that in was when when you start a story do you know where ending. No no never. I mean i'm thinking of your novel. The verification est which starts with kind of scene of inflation and floating upwards and when you began that book did you know how and when these people would come down. I didn't know a bit. It took a long time to to make progress Because i didn't know. And i'd been stuck that and the beginning for a while and then i had the idea of in floating to the ceiling and that was greatly liberating but i still didn't know what it was gonna be what he was gonna do. I've never known where i was going. When i was writing. Section grab says part of why why barth is such a touch point for you. Yeah yeah yeah. The balloon is a much taught story. It's much red story at sort if you read. Only one far story in an anthology is probably the balloon right. Why do you think that is. How does it stand out from his other stories. It's accessible. i mean it's less abstract Well short to the probably homes but this is a very contained story. Know and i think it would be teachable with that ending like that you know people talk about endlessly talk about barthelme as opposed modernist or a writer of fiction. Do you buy into that kind of classification of what he does. I mean when i started reading donald karratha me. I didn't have any sense of what those things were. And i still don't a way. No i just think of him. As a great writer that's acceptable. Who has an element of play. Always always is fooling around. Yeah i just love him. Yeah that's why. I wanted to read this again after reading bottle little city if i come and do this again and read for a podcast. I'll definitely choose another reiner. I won't will. You did choose another one in the middle. You read dennis johnson right. The story work which is also a very playful and inventive story. What is it. The most attracts you to a particular story or writer A convincing world you know in bartholomew's making a world here it's new york but it's not our new york but it's a world. Dennis johnson and work makes a world. So i would say that that the concrete fully describe world or enough describe world is something that draws me in and not just a balloon drifts around. And that's all we know about it. It's got texture. It's got extent it's got borders. It can be blown about on a wind. It requires helium. It's a very to me a very concrete story. Well thank you so much. Thank you almost barthelme.

"It's a story about the meaninglessness of life while at the same time. It's a story that allows for all kinds of different meanings meanings right. So do you think the balloon is. life is at one interpretation. One possible. I had never thought of it that way but maybe the balloon is only there for twenty two days. It's got a short life. The balloons not really alive but it does seem like a creature. You know i imagine it. As a vast pillow pillowy form the a lights on the tops of buildings and squeezes itself between buildings. And it's got some kind of life for the people below but i've never imagined it that way exactly I mean another way and this is certainly implied in the story. Another way of looking at it is that it's a creative work. It's a story. Perhaps the doll. Barney story that fuller responding to i have to laugh when he finds the most like the worst comment on that is to say. It's interesting such a such damning with faint praise But then he kind of runs through these lists of sort of critical commentary that make no sense but A sound official. And you feel. I feel at least on some level. He's perhaps mocking the critics. Maybe i've ever imagined donald barthelme really mocking. But it may be that. He's having fun with the critics. One thing barth is not as he doesn't have a smirk to me. It's a story about innocence as well in some way. This new thing that he's made in created. It's not interesting to him because he's getting through a rough time which we don't know until the end it's also not interesting because of its colors. It's grey and brown there. It is just a balloon. It's just a balloon but it has to stand for a lifetime of thinking about balloons and the narrator says as much. Yeah it seems to me that sometimes he's trying to sort of deliberately. Throw us off the sent you know with by saying it has no meaning. You're than saying it's a parent purposeless. Nece is this that you know if it's apparent than perhaps it does have a purpose but its purpose isn't to amuse children. So what is it you know. There's there's a lot of solicitation in the story In a sense to to make us think about this balloon and anything that could possibly represent or be see. I imagine barth he running the story and basically having fun and if it's about meaning and meaninglessness than it would be fun to go through a variety of possible meanings and then shoot them down which the story does in a way what it means to barthelme me it may also mean to the narrator right. Is there a difference between the two well. Barthelme never inflated a balloon above above manhattan. Perhaps barthelme felt grief and longing for a lover who had gone to norway. I think he must have and maybe he wrote the story during that time right and in that sense the story is the balloon. Sure ranco though. The story isn't grey and brown with soft yellows. Which is. it's it's just fascinating to me. That the specificity of some of the details right you know because if what we have is a giant symbol something soaring above manhattan to represent grief. Why does it have these specific qualities it's concrete. It's a balloon and so huge balloon so it has to have a kind of concrete nature so these are concrete. Descriptions like the surface of it that people take trips on And the colors. One of the colors is forgotten yellows. I believe that's that's one of the first hints. I suppose you get that this. Perhaps in emotional balloon. The balloon is real. The balloon is not just an idea. the the narrator really does inflatable in the balloon. Really does cover part of lower manhattan. It's a real balloon sores. I'm concerned so you have a balloon. That's real let's tactile that's described in a in a concrete way and yet is also seen or interpreted as a metaphor for a lot of things and in a way. It's a perfect metaphor because you take a balloon it's hollow you. Fill it with air. You fill it with gas. You fill it with something or whatever you want exactly. And in this case it's filled. Yes it's filled with helium but it's also filled with longing. Well that's the metaphorical part. Yeah in the meantime. It's filled with. Helium is inflated. So i take it to be a real balloon. That's really made by this character. Even though we know that that's impossible and then when you get to the end and he's sort of revealed well in fact. This balloon is a manifestation of my longing in my deprivation while this love was away even then it's still physical because he takes it down but it's just fabric that's stored somewhere stored in west virginia. Why why yes. Because he doesn't have use for it any longer but at the very last line makes me think you know what's waiting there in case it's needed again and it might be needed again if they become angry with each other. So why would anger. 'cause the balloon to be inflated because it would be a break in their relationship and it'd be a rift would put him into discomfort again Longing and the balloon is has solution for discomfort or it's his representation of discomfort is his way of getting through would say that. It's not necessarily a solution. It's only needed while. He's in discomfort. Yeah longing tamales distress so yes. The balloon is a manifestation of distress. But that doesn't change the fact that it's a real ballooned that he's really constructed with engineers and everyone else. What do you think of the tone of the story. I mean i feel. It's almost written like a science experiment you know with the precise sort of this is where it stops. This is where it goes. This is what it does that kind of precise observation of what happens when you put this object in this place. I hadn't thought of it as a science experiment i can. I can read it somewhat as a letter. Got an epistolary quality. It's explaining this to some third party. You know mia new What do you make of those two opposing interpretations. You know one man sees it as sullying. The sky will in fact it's january in this guy's nasty and the other one sees it as this sort of unexpected office bonus some cash in.

"Choose a story from the magazines archives to read and discuss this month. We're going to hear the balloon by donald barthelme which was published in the new yorker in april of nineteen sixty six disability on the part of the balloon to shifted shape to change was very pleasing especially to people whose lives were rather rigidly patterned persons to whom change all the desired was not available. The balloon for the twenty two days of its existence offered the possibility in its randomness of getting lost. The story was chosen by donald antrim. The author of three novels and the story collection the emerald. Lighten the air. His memoir one friday in april a story of suicide and survival will be published this month. High donald. Hey how're you doing all right. So in one of the first podcasts in this series in two thousand seven you read and talked about a different donald barthelme story. I bought a little city. And what made you choose barth again. I loved donald barthelme for one and the balloon is one of my favorite stories of all time and seem too short to read for this. But it's not apparently I have a soft spot. Why do you think you have a soft spot. partly because donald barthelme was one of the first writers. I ever read. Who made me feel like. I wanted to be a writer. I read barth in highschool and there was some sitting on my few copies sitting on my father's shelf and i took them off took them to the beach. We lived in miami. That tom and i just couldn't be bothered while i was reading them. That just went straight to me when you when you first read them back then as a teenager and thought maybe you could write. Were you thinking he would write in a style like that. Not exactly I'm not really sure what it was. I didn't begin writing for a very long time after that. I was still reading when i was younger. I had the feeling that. I had to read everything. And before. I could right before i was allowed to write. It wasn't until i was in. My mid twenties began to write anything in earnest and with the balloon. He said it's your favorite donald barthelme story. Why is that. what is it about this one. It's a love story and for a long time reading it. I didn't really realize that because it comes so subtly at the very end of the story but not long ago i read it allowed to my wife and it really hit me that aspect of it that that fact and i had tears the emotionality. The story is intense for me. It's interesting we'll hear the story but that emotion is well. Maybe it's it's an undercurrent but it's not mentioned explicitly to last paragraph of the story. But you feel it earlier feel it earlier now know after reading it again and again and do you remember when you first read up. Oh i must have been about seventeen or eighteen. I think when. I was trying to read if i were going to be a writer. One day reading everything i could get my hands on reading gauge lawrence reading donald bortolami. Does it very different writers. Sure but you've got to do that. I think you gotta read around. Yeah well we'll talk some more after the story. And now here's donald antrim reading the balloon by donald barthelme. The balloon the balloon beginning point on fourteenth street. The exact location of which i cannot reveal expanded northward all one night while people were sleeping until it reached the park. There stopped it at dawn. The northernmost edges lay over the plaza the free hanging motion was frivolous and gentle but experiencing a faint irritation at stopping even to protect the trees and seeing no reason the balloon should not be allowed to expand upward over the parts of the city. It was already covering into the airspace to be found there. I asked the engineers to see to it. This expansion took place throughout the morning. A soft imperceptible sawing of gas through the valves. The balloon covered forty five blocks north south and in regular area east-west as many as six crosstown blocks on either side of the avenue in some places that was the situation then but it is wrong to speak of situations implying sets of circumstances leading to some resolution some escape of tension there were no situations simply the balloon hanging there muted heavy grays and browns for the most part contrasting with walnut and soft yellows a deliberate lack of finish enhanced by skillful installation gave the surface a rough forgotten quality sliding waits on the inside carefully adjusted anchored the great very shaped mass at a number of points. Now we have had a flood of original ideas on media works of singular beauty as well as significant milestones in the history of inflation. But at that moment there was only this balloon. Concrete particular hanging there. there were reactions. Some people found the balloon interesting as a response. This seemed inadequate to the immensity. Of the balloon the suddenness of its appearance over the city on the other hand in the absence of hysteria or other society induced anxiety. It must be judged to calm mature one there was a certain amount of initial argumentation about the meaning of the balloon. The subsided because we have learned not to insist on meanings and they are rarely even looked for now except in cases involving the simplest safest phenomena. It was agreed that since the meaning of the balloon could never be known absolutely extended. Discussion was pointless or at least less meaningful than the activities of those who for example hung green and blue paper lanterns. From the warm grey underside in certain streets or seize the occasion to write messages on the surface announcing their availability for the performance of unnatural acts or the availability of acquaintances daring. Children jumped especially at those points where the balloon hovered close to a building so that the gap between balloon building was a matter of a few inches or points where the balloon actually made contact exerting ever so slight pressure against the side of a building so the balloon and building seemed to unity. The upper surface was so structured that a landscape was presented. Small valleys as well as slight holes or mounds once atop the balloon a stroll was possible or even a trip from one place to another.

"Matters like we you know. Well we have great assets he managing. It'll be good but like you know. This wasn't a financial benefit for nancy. Pelosi again the democrats can have it both ways right if it was donald trump making that kind of money creating stocks while making the decisions on things that will influence those stocks. There would be outrage of epic proportions right. If the secret service has to book a hotel in near one of donald trump's places there's a story about spent thirty two dollars it's enriching trump. You know they don't talk about the things that the cost they don't talk about any of that stuff wasn't people as husband. Makes one hundred billion dollars on stock trades on things they should directly influencing crickets again liberal privilege at its finest. So it's not good for business. But i think in the end. You know we're patriotic americans and doing the right thing for our country. I'm the father five young children. I want them to grow up in a country that i recognize and if someone and people like donald trump. Don't step up. we're not gonna see that we're not gonna recognize this country. You know look no further than the last six months. It's truly scary. You have you know what's going on in terms of the censorship side of things you have you know the fbi totally ignoring eighteen months of riot. Looting arson murder To to make sure that they have plenty of time to try to track down. You know someone's grandmother who may or may not have been within one thousand miles of washington dc on january six. It's a freaking disgrace is what it is. You have corruption in the highest levels of law enforcement. Look at komi you know struck Brennan mccabe all of these people for the last few years you know. These institutions have been corrupted.

"Atonement for me donald He magic misfits. It's kagan i've you and welcome back to tone meant for me. So i've been talking a lot about my art lately and some of the things that i work through in my designs and in my art and people who inspire me and drive me and a couple of weeks ago. I said one of the biggest prisons that i have created for myself as been trust and that is always going to be the hardest thing for me any relationship whether it be a friendship or family or romantic. But i haven't had very much opportunity and least a decade to make art. That is hot. Be and that represents me in a happy and safe space and the only well. Not the only reason but the main reason that i'm able to do that right now. Is the man that i met who i'm dating. And his name is donald. He is my biggest support right now and i don't know what i could have done without him. And if you've known me for any amount of time you'll know how difficult it is for me to hold people close to me and acknowledge that and tell other people about that Relationships to me have been super super private but also a huge mark of shame for me just because of how terrible my recent relationship then and getting myself into super awkward relationships having been abused in a romantic relationship will change you for ever and he has been so patient and kind with me that it sounds so strange to say this out loud but he makes me feel like a human being and that should be a basic. But i just discovered that i could be a human being and that could be treated like a human being and equally and fairly and that is terrifying and amazing and mysterious to me. I don't know all the time what i'm doing and i'll look at him like i'm just waiting for the other foot to drop because i am terrified and i tell them all the time that i absolutely terrified but it's also something that i don't wanna lose having lost so much in such a short period of time and having lived with nothing for so long that being given the other half of your soul is just miraculous but at the same time like what you when you need that and i don't couple months ago v was talking about who they saw for me the perfect partner and i didn't even know what i wanted.

"It's too dangerous because he sometimes here you heard it around Brexit in this country that have the ignorant people had voted for the thing. They didn't understand no one understood. That's true but it's much more dangerous when the president in the face of ignorance behaves. Let your does that seems to be well put. There is a dangerous narrative at work here. which is the electorate is divided Eddie between ignorance and knowledge? And I don't think that's the I agree. I just want to pick you up on something you said earlier in that respect as well as you said we all needed you needed to civic education. I send if you like that in this country I feel like we've been put through a civic education over the last three and a half years because of what happened after the referendum. I don't think in this country understood our own constitution listen. I don't think we understood what was happening to. Countries politics understood many of the social economic problems in this country in that sense. I think that what's happened is being a wakeup call to his was all of facing ignorance so I think this is the silver lining of trump is that I think that versions of that has happened to a lot of Americans the awareness that I need to start paying a different kind of attention to this process so I think that's true and I think that you know this political moment is a byproduct of of a very long period of not exactly peace and prosperity there. Obviously you know America's been at war in its own way forever and not everybody what he is experiencing prosperity. But there's been an absence for a longtime of an existential threat of the sort that like the Cold War provided World War Two or the depression or the pandemics that happened in the early twentieth century. So there's this less less of a need people feel less. They can afford Ford to ignore. This thing is a nineteen centers off. I think into this the luxury of stepping back from things that should we needed to be much more engaged with out of taking it back a little further eighties but yes. I think that's right. It's a luxury to be able to afford. Donald Trump in the White House and I think a lot a lot of people who will pay the biggest price for him being there people who voted for him and they'll realize at some point that this was it was one of the really striking things about the trump support was that consistently across the country. The more rural the person the more likely they where to vote for trump the fewer people in their town the more likely they were for trump. And it's also true. The fewer people who are in your town the more utterly dependent that you are on the United States government for the firehouse that schools the hospital and that people didn't make that connection that they're handing over essentially initially the instrument for their salvation to someone who doesn't care about it is breathtaking. It's it's beyond like not voting for your economic interest. It's like you're voting waiting for someone who potentially could just crater your entire existence. isn't an also then a breathtaking of what came before that it got to this point. Yes it is is that I think that's absolutely true when I was going to ask you about the connections between this and all the other things you write about from sport to behavioral economics exit everything else. I will not do one on finance. We'll street at a question about ignorance. So the people who ran those banks that nearly took us all down did not know what was going on inside inside those banks. Clearly the chief executives did not understand what they were selling and the consequences were nearly work catastrophic for some of them and Nettie catastrophic for all of us here. We are ten plus years on so they had the ultimate Waco. We haven't had that yet in politics and God knows what it would look like if we did. I mean it doesn't bad thinking go away but other people who run those banks. I mean if we took that as the modal did they learn the lesson. Do they now know what they're are doing when they saw the consequences of their ignorance or they back in the place where we started this conversation. which is ignorance is actually strategically useful? So if you want to be in this business so knows a big question. I guess my crew that the the society has forced them to behave differently than they behaved leading into the crisis so for example they all are better capitalized than they were. All the American banks much much better capitalized than they were. Before they got a cushion that they didn't have. I think it's also true to say that the CEO's are all if I had to bet warier carrier of their employees more aware of their ignorance. People might be doing things inside the bank so that they know that if if they didn't know before it's hard to believe they didn't know before they must know that these institutions are too complicated to manage j. p.. Morgan is smart as Jamie diamond is and his as well. Run as it is compared to all the other ones. He can't know everything that's going on inside JP more. It's just too complicated. These things are many times the size and many times the complexity of the Solomon Brothers that I once worked in and there was no way the head of Solomon Brothers knew what everybody was doing it I could. I could prove it to you because I was doing stuff that that was kind of crazy that he didn't know about and I was a million so I think what they counted on going crisis was everybody had the same incentives everybody had the same interests inside the bank and everybody was kind of smart and selfish so it would result in US making money. They didn't realize that they had people who could make lots of money doing things that would in the end torpedo the bank. So I I bet they have reacted to that. I don't I don't know for a fact that I I bet that they've reacted in any case. We all know the same crisis never happens twice. Whatever happens next? It's look like the financial crisis and it looks like something else and if I had to predict what's going to happen in the financial sector is it's it's not going to start in the financial sector will start with the government. I mean Donald Trump does something that calls into question say the trustworthiness of the US government to repay its debts. That's kind of thing that could trigger the next financial crisis and the other things command like Donald Trump would never end up running a bank because he they wouldn't let him anywhere near it. It'd be when you back when he's real estate developer that he was dishonest and he is an idiot by the time he was done with the New York. Vecsey wouldn't lent him so they have very low opinion of him but he's president but he's president we will tweet the League's not just a Michael's the most recent book the fifth risk but will the other ones too.
