"All right dr axelrod from frank in some states like pennsylvania some republicans and many independent voters rejected trump but voted to reelect their republican state. Legislators if the supreme court allows the state legislatures to criminalize abortion. Will this be the issue that will push the same voters to take the next step and reject that pro-trump antiabortion republican party particularly important in philadelphia. 'cause key open seats senate rates there with senator pat toomey retiring and it's probably the best chance for the deeds to pick up a decisive senate seat. What say you i say. Let me be frank with frank o. Big grown across america. Give it a minute. I'm going to slightly repurpose your question. I think the answer is yes. I think that there are real ramifications. I think they're already ramifications of from what texas has done I think they'll be greater if the supreme court Embrace embraces That position and his essentially does away with roe versus wade and adopts or embraces lot. Close to what. Texas or mississippi have have passed But i think this is part of a larger package. i i think that That it's not just trump. It's not just The virus. And how how. Various republicans are handling the virus. It's a whole package of things that says. This is an uncomfortable place to be. If you're an independent voter fewer moderate voter these guys have gone over the deep off the deep end. I think the abortion issue will will galvanize a lot of independent voters and a lot of women. Yes but i also think that if democrats are gonna succeed in two thousand twenty two. They need to paint the picture of what life with the republicans with these republicans would be like and this will be part of that mix. Yeah i can guarantee you that mitch. Mcconnell does not wake up every day. Saying wow i really want real big abortion war in the philly suburbs. Our new hampshire some my other target Senate pickup states. Yes frank will be big if that happens in next spring if that's what supreme court does there will be political ramifications of it for republicans. Jamar you have a dissenting view. No mean i think again. I mean not the focus on the commonwealth too much. But i will say. I'm watching this closely in virginia. My colleague gabriel had a story from jacob h the other day about this topic can the abortion issue animate Women in virginia Yeah and if. I'm if i'm Mcaullife i'm taking that i'm taking the vaccines are making sure that this is a choice. Obviously trump as well. His opponent is support of the president on painting a very scary picture of life with of life with these guys. They've been a little late to do that. But we're see if terry can rally there and just real fast. I think anything may twenty twenty two more of a choice election frankly and less on a referendum on biden of democrats and absolutely. That's going to be favorable for for the party. It is the only way to blunt. What i i think could be a very bad year for democrats alright murphy. A couple of months ago. You mentioned you still like liz. Cheney's chances at winning reelection. Because of the large prime mayfield field. In the fact that a plurality not a majority is needed to secure the nomination now that trump endorsed harriet hanuman and several republican challenges have dropped out. Are you still optimistic about her chances. Well i think i was talking about mary. Cheney so no no i think. Liz cheney is strong in a plurality but in real danger in a a two way race that trump guys are trying to make it a two way race with adam and I don't think hagman's brickley strong candidate but there needs to be another place for some anti cheney vote to go and politics is entrepreneurial so i'm not sure the shutdown of the other candidates will hold we we will see if hagman stumbles which is quite possible. I don't think she's prickly strong candidate. Then we could get back in the plurality business but a two way race is exactly what cheney doesn't want her need right and this is why of course the the the trump forces tried to get the wyoming legislature to adopt a runoff right provisioned and they then changing back by one. Vote in the states. Yet they're right exactly. Jonathan martin just a guy named john but he spells it wrong with an age yet. Odds seem stack towards ours taking the house after twenty twenty two but with such thin margins there scenario where ours take a narrow majority but few cheney kin zinger if he survives redistricting which by the way i don't think he will being from illinois vote with these to make a dee speaker giving their repeated statements that mccarthyism fit to be speaker and trump is can't be trusted to run the show. What say you. Yeah look I think kevin mccarthy would be much safer if he has a majority of over ten right if this is a tougher than expected election and some of his Internal critics do hang on They only gained. You know six seven seats. This is gonna be a really white knuckle ride for mccarthy the votes i if he's over ten he's a lot better shape look. It's just tough not to give the speakership to your leader after you claim the majority what if they substituted an arbor for the d. And most all neidl if you get the democratic caucus to go along with that and the lack of the aforementioned fred upton of michigan for a long time. Now i know this is like this is like the The political hobbyist fantasy. Here right of That's what we do here. Yeah the narrow. The very narrow republican majority but a mccarthy can't find the votes who the compromise candlelight. Well it's the you know. Like thirty year veteran waiting in the wings who can satisfy the middle and both parties. I think it's unlikely to put it mildly But you know these days you never say never so often would be somebody who you can sort of see fitting that role. I also mentioned tom. Cole is somebody else you can. Beings admirable homa the democrats as well. He used to be in your business. Yeah exactly yes yes. Hey on this subject. I've heard a theory swirling around that Trump will george p bush mccarthy that at the end of the day. He'll allow him to be a supplicant for the duration of this period and then at the time he'll gamma hearty handshake and endorse someone else for certain which would really kind of fun to see. It's possible and obviously trump has does have a record of Not exactly always been loyal to those loyal to him. Put it mildly. Bought that said and not the sort of rain on that fantasy but who would be the alternative right right. Jim jordan even want that job what it'd be who's to kind of pro trump figure in the house who wants the bird right. What about a least phonic. Yeah potentially if. She wants that if she wants that job. I think it's very difficult to sort of have that that position. There's a reason. Why bain or ryan did not took the job and they. They sure did hard to turn down speaker of the house. That's a pretty big position. This is all sort of fantasy football a little bit a little relation. No no no. It's good now. You allowed to talk about your book. Yeah no way absolutely. I'm i'm working on a with my colleague. Alex burns at the times. The short version is this is a political history of twenty and twenty one. We hope it's gonna be kind of the first comprehensive account of this period of extraordinary tunnel in american politics and we spent a lot of time talking to figures in both parties and We think we have a a really really good good read coming out next year. So we're we're excited about that. Simon schuster publisher. It's myself and alex burns. Keep an eye out for it next year at bookstores across america. Excellent mortar to more to come jonathan. Thank you always great to talk to you. I'm off to paris for consultations but Look forward to being back on heck soon okay brother good to be with you. Thank you see..

"Of the show you heard from ana and shamir to women who are suffering from. What's known as long cove. Ed if that sounds like a really broad and kind of generic name for a health condition. You're not wrong. This is intentionally broad definition. It can encompass someone who was in the hospital with severe disease who has long lasting scarring or damage to the heart lungs or other vital systems but in the past year we've seen emerging more and more just how many people who had mild or moderate code nineteen so people who initially didn't have to go the hospital or needs to be supportive with oxygen or targeted treatments but had this failure to recover characterized by Ups that's dr. Hana axelrod an infectious disease physician at george washington university. Last year she cofounded. Gw's cova nineteen recovery clinic to care for people suffering with long cove it. She told us. Some of the clusters of long cove and symptoms include things like shortness of breath difficulty. Catching your breath. We're getting back to endurance with exercise irregular or uncontrolled straight neurologic symptoms such as nerve pain headaches or migraines profound fatigue cognitive issues such as memory. The tensions have problems. We've also seen a lot of sleep. Disturbances we've seen some people with long lasting temperature the strangulations people who feel hot or cold or may actually run look. Great fevers for a long time after initial infection. Some studies have estimated that more than one in ten people who contract cova nineteen have reported suffering from long. Kobe and researchers have noted. This seems to affect more women than men in the arts that the average age of a patient has been in their forties. Maybe thirties and we have seen three to one. Female male ratio. We don't know if that is because females are more affected more because women are more likely to seek care regardless of the explanation for that with the delta variant now causing huge spikes in case numbers and hospitalizations. The medical community is facing increasing pressure. To figure out what exactly is going on with long it. Unfortunately there's still a lot of bad news here like were around eighteen months into this pandemic and researchers still don't have a strong idea of what causes long cove it in the first place so far there are a few working theories so one of the strongest hypotheses out the gate was that the extreme inflammatory reaction ovid nineteen can provoke. Even in healthy people can trigger other immune damage overproduction of antibodies. Think of this like antibodies. That essentially misfire or go into overdrive and attack other tissues in the body not the virus. They should be targeting. If that's what's going on here it would make long. Cove it in autoimmune disease overtime dr axelrod says another working theory has emerged. Loan cova for maybe half the patients navy. More appears involves the nervous system. She's not sure what's causing this saying. It could either be cova. Nineteen directly attaching to attacking nerve cells or the body's immune response causing the damage. Either way damage is being done and it's causing ongoing neurological symptoms like brain fog headache or the loss of smell. Proving either of these hypotheses or another one is going to be difficult especially because of just how many symptoms have been reported one. Study of just a few thousand people dealing with long cove found. They were suffering for more than two hundred different symptoms. And these symptoms aren't just different for a lot of people they could also be really severe requiring a total change in how some people live their lives. Here's anna the musician from queens. You heard from earlier. I feel like in some ways. I haven't changed as a person. But i also feel like every single thing has changed. Everything's changed its overwhelming. I think a lot of my able bodied friends. say big. what have you been up to and a lot of times. I say nothing. But then i remember like actually. I've been learning this whole new way of flesh play. Just don't jumped in a a whole new way of living and trying to just learn as much as i can about that while i'm super tired. Another thing tiring people out dealing with long cova is feeling disregarded by doctors. Here's shamir who you also heard from earlier. She told us she's constantly felt like she's had to be her own doctor because her actual doctors weren't listening to her. I wasn't treated fairly. I wasn't treated with compassionate. Care wasn't listened to. I wasn't hurt and i was dismissed and on top of that. She says her experience was likely made worse because of existing discrimination in the healthcare system. Those first eight months. I experienced sexism. Racism from doctors in even just a basic headache wasn't listened to or wasn't validated by doctors. I never thought. I would have that experience but as soon as i started so watch myself from march until probably about october of last year. I said wow. I had been tossed aside dismissed by doctors just because there is this overarching assumption. That black people black women don't know they're buddies. Doctors assumed time. After time that i did not know what i was talking about when i say that these are the symptoms of cove. It okay so those are the many challenges that people with long cove at face but both shamir and anna have taken specific steps to try to make living with long it easier. Shamir has become an advocate for herself and for others is important for a person who is dealing with long long-coveted to contain you. Don't stop advocating for themselves. Keep copious notes of the treatment and the care that they're getting from doctors. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Write the questions down right. Symptoms down while anna has found new groups to go to for validation and support leaning on others in the long cova community and the disabled community for help. It's been a lot of learning about how people live who are comically ill and feel so grateful for them. Saying you know that you don't have to reinvent from scratch how to live as a sick person and they're like ooh you could try this or like this is easier than this. Or here's some tips about how you could eat. That takes less energy. Like here's some easy to prep meals. Which brings us to our good news. Kinda dr axelrod says compared to several months ago there are now more treatments available to alleviate certain long cove symptoms. We know more about medical treatment. The use of nerve medication seems to be quite promising in alleviating the symptoms and allowing people to recover and to regain control. According to scientific american other treatments that seemed to work for some people include taking stimulants like adderall. Or ritalin concentration issues. Those same researchers also have observed that some asthma treatments and breathing exercises can help people who feel short of breath. More money is also being invested into studying long cova including from the national institutes of health. Which says it's allocating over a billion dollars towards more research. Dr axelrod admits that help is needed. It's been difficult to get long. Cova patients the care. They need the state of our healthcare system. Right now. we're hearing every day. How overstretched overburdened. Even acute care is across. The nation were in.
"dr axelrod" Discussed on Hacks on Tap with David Axelrod and Mike Murphy
"Hey up chair. Attacks on tap with david. Axelrod robert gibbs and mike murphy. My view is very simple. There should be no mandate zero concerning covert that means no mask mandates regardless of your vaccination status that means no no vaccine mandates that means no vaccine passports and i've introduced legislation a bill to ban vaccine passports this week. I'm introducing a bill to ban vaccine mandates and this will a introducing a bill to end mask mandates. Now there you go. Math yeah we. We mandate aircraft engine regulations but not the virus of the century. That was everybody's favorite senator ted cruz. A once called a sitcom vampire by a particularly in. uk always makes me laugh Taking credit is the full libertarian position but It is also i think cheap political grandstanding and when it comes to cheap political grandstanding. If you don't get enough for me and axelrod we need to bring in a specialist a true pro so tell us. Tell us dr axelrod. Who's joining us today. And a texan attacks. Let's not forget that. Paul begala all cattle. No hat aso paul. Begala with us and who better to interpret ted cruz and this moment then he could to see a brother. Thank you for having me. Ask great to see and murph to thank you guys for having me. I'm wearing by your viewers at home can see my longhorn t-shirt cuisine. Yes i don't own anything that does not have either my school's insignia or one of my many sons schools. Even if you sit in. Virginia as you wear it exactly yes. So what are you guys. Make of this. I mean we have a covert search going on right. Now we have a vaccine that can prevent you from getting seriously ill And we have a surge because as a lot of people won't take it and now we have kids going back to school who can't have the vaccine and we have ted cruz. And we have ron disentis just picked through all of this begala within the politics of emmy we can. Let's stipulate the condemnations of really dangerous stupidity but What what how do you think they are reading. The politics that leads them to idiotic positions like this. Well yeah i a senator cruz clearly is positioning self to run for president again. Clearly trying to get the most extreme elements of his face. You know keep in mind. He's the guy who got beat by donald trump. The last time around trump of falsely accused his father complicity. Kennedy's assassination cruelly insulted the appearance of his very attractive wife Wendy and yet. Ted owes total to your gives. Total fealty to this animal trump. He's the man with the the spine of jellyfish and this has real consequences. I it's his problem. If he won't even defend his wife and his father that speaks to his character as a family man. But i have family in texas. I have lots of family and friends in texas in austin where i'm from where we live for many years anyway. There's two point three million people in the metropolitan area. It has grown so fast. it's kind of outkicked. Its coverage in terms of health infrastructure. And so with this kovin surge. There were six. Icu beds available in the austin metropolitan region. This morning for two point three million people. God forbid my son is in a car accident. God forbid papa has a stroke. God forbid the school bus going back to school has an accident. We need. Twenty kids in the icu. This has real world consequences and for crews to be playing politics. You can't just get on a plane and go to cancun to avoid the corona virus. This is. We're all in this together. And i think that's the only sensible message by the way that's not a liberal message is not a conservative message is a profoundly american message to say to people. Hey we're all in this together. Love your neighbor. Take the shot put on a mask. We'll get through this together. Texas and i think that actually would be a better political argument for him but he is awfully talented politicians. So maybe he's reading the most Principled part of his base correctly but He's gonna he's gonna hurt a lot of people. Yeah i well first of all. I have to inform you. The national jellyfish association tweeted incensed at the cheap. They compare them to cruise. You're gonna have a thousand jellyfish outside your driveway in a in a matter of minutes after this podcast as i grew up swimming in the gulf of mexico. You guys. you didn't have this lake michigan. Acts what you do if you get stung by a jellyfish of which we have a million off the coast to galveston ways to swim. What's that upenn. You pee on your own leg or wherever else. The wellesley on behalf of our listeners. I wanna thank you for a mental image. That many women two or three days trying to get rid of but back to cruise for day. We've all been in politics. We peed on lake before. Oh believe me. I'm doing right now So the Cruise into santa's governor florida. Who's who's also running for president. They all presidential fever is making the same calculation. And of course you've seen this on any issue i'll put aside the my moral outrage to about covert and and how this is a responsible but you know they're all two years out there all three years hanging around their staff. They're like hey. Did you hear the tim scott was in. You know national new hampshire. We gotta go twice. You know they all compete on ridiculousness early. 'cause there's nothing else to do other than obsessed with the opposition and compete so i think cruises decided he's in some kind of auction with the scientists and maybe others set by the trump predicate. I agree with that. That masks are bad but like most political strategies dumb to think short term descent is for the rest of his political life. Starting six months from now is lucky to have anything he tries to do. Start with the question. You had the worst kovic response of any governor in america served so you know blah blah. They're digging a hole on the assumption that the republican primary is gonna hit on whether or not you're against mandates and for masking and i'm telling you long term. That's a mistake right. Now there's some hotheads who will excite. Oh we're doing. Liberty were standing up for america and our personal freedoms by not taking a miracle drug. You know it's it's it's it's a great moronic howl but in the longer term he's taken himself in with cruise ought to remember is unlike many of the texas paul's Take pretty conservative positions. He's actually in political trouble in the state. Because when cova hit his response to senator was to log onto travelocity general truce. He wouldn't lasted at. The alamo crews would have been a road runner cloud you know running for the hills immediately. So he's got regular voter trouble in a state that is becoming less ruby red. So i think this thing is doubled dumb in the short term. Yeah one news will give an applause line but longer term even the republican primaries and i think the scientists in some ways is worse. 'cause he's governor really going to own florida. Which is the epicenter of the new new outbreak. it's dumb. They're fighting the last war in there. They're gonna be stained indelibly with this..

"Once. Great nina turner who is a candidate of the left and shantelle brown more monitored minor canon. Interestingly the congressional caucus has lined up behind brown yes so has jim clyburn nina to her credit or deficit depending on how you think. Not only a bernie person. I mean trotsky would say wow now that's progressive. I'm a little scared. And she was the big front runners. Yeah like a thirty point lead. Now it's like a three point race. I think brown's got upset there. Yeah you know. Interestingly she she was endorsed though by the cleveland plain dealer and others up on the basis of her stand on on for school reform other when she was a state senator. So that's an interesting to a spot that's going to be looked at it. Maybe more than it should. But that's going to be looked at for clues as to where the national party. Yeah it's going to be like the new york. City mayor's race may be a little bit over an lies but both. Afc and bernie are going and big and strong for turner. While james clyburn is going and big and strong for brown so both african american candidates. It's an african american majority district though. It doesn't include parts of shaker heights. Israel's become an issue because of controversial statements in the country steve. We should point out that new here. We had no no. Wasn't he great the other week. You're a great hack but anyways so this thing is and there's tremendous outside money running in Because it's going to send a big signal team bernie versus team biden. Even though by does not involve she was critic of in the primary will be keeping an eye on that stuff but we have clamoring for wisdom from our mailbag people. Now if you have a ruse have mellberg question or a comment or an insult or anything. You want to send us an email address. Hacks on tap at g mail dot com. It's true repair the big tech conspiracy here hacks on tap g mail dot com senator question it out and maybe read it on the air so question. Number one is for the esteemed. Mr axelrod comes from tyler so cool. They named a city in texas after him. Tyler rights acts given your vast experience in democratic politics names to left me but anyway centuries of experience in democratic politics. I'm curious why you think senator kirsten cinema tax so hard to the middle when her senate partner mark kelly does not while pulling their in arizona suggests. Kelly is more popular in the state. Even though he's taken numerous dances to cinemas left. Can you please explain all this. So tyler listen. Kirsten cinema loves to poke the left in the is she thinks it helps her a politically. She was very. She made a very flamboyant vote against raising the minimum wage Earlier this year that drove out or not she right in the middle of this Bipartisan infrastructure discussion. She's opposed to the filibuster change So abut to conclude that kelly is somehow a left Politicians is mistaken at misreads politics in arizona. If i was there during that campaign he ran a campaign that was decidedly Mired in tone. And i think he is moderate in in habit He ran a campaign about country over party. Stressed his military service You know there's no doubt he is solidly in progressive. But he is. He is pragmatic and You know. I think they're both it. Both of them recognized the state which is a swing state dominated by maricopa county which is largely a suburban County where with moderate voters And and you have to be able to appeal across party lines. So you know. I wouldn't separate one from the other The the difference is not that dramatic. He has a very moderate tone and style which is part of the package. Well a lifetime in the military the astronaut thing and so on yeah it's mccain. He's echoes of the senator. They all knew well. Jackie we have a tough question for you. But an important one from chris chris rights as someone who knows politics only from the outside. I of always wondered what makes one politician more powerful than another within their own party. Why pelosi mccarthy schumer and mcconnell have rank and others don't so leadership politics unwrapped that one. Well i know this will sound weird. But i love congressional leadership politics and when i first started covering congress in nineteen eighty four I i studied up on the history because past decades there had been some good ones that involve people like gerald ford who would later be president and in eighty six. there was a fabulous insider democratic leadership race that was just a real temp. And this is why. I love them. There were six candidates for this democrat house. Democratic leadership race in each of the candidates represented a not just a fraction of the house but a faction of the party rodley. And it told you where the party was in this late reagan administration period of our politics So come all the changes in our politics up to the president trump era of post trump era. The one thing that still pretty much the same our leadership politics in congress and that is an inside game. That's why you have somebody like mitch. Mcconnell in the senate mitch. Mcconnell could never win a national election i would say. But he's the perfect for your. It's the perfect you know Candidate for an insider congressional leadership race. He did from the time he came to congress. In nineteen eighty five to the senate is he steeped himself in insider senate business down to the little perks that senators get and he. That's why he's on the senate rules committee which determines things like that and he And that's why he carved out such a place for Opposing any Limits on campaign finance and that was his biggest issue and so and pelosi pelosi. Is i think perhaps the best speaker in. us history. But she could she too would. Never i don't think when a national election but she came up she came up through the ranks and she Cater to her members and to each faction of the party. She's yes she's a liberal from san francisco but her inside politics don't reflect that she is very supportive of her moderates and the people that are in vulnerable districts. And so that's all i'll say about that's how people and a bumbler like schumer again. Schumer would never win national election. But you know again i. That's gotta love. You gotta love these politics because it puts these people in positions of power. That are so that they can sit down with presidents of both parties and deal. Yeah it's the world's biggest high class president election with secret balance to which had another dole wants famously joke when he lost a committee vote. I don't know it lost it like you know twelve to six. I don't know. I had eighteen firm commitments election of politicians. All right last question. Got anything for me dr axelrod. This is simple question murphy. After listening to steve israel in recent podcast my question is best to contribute money to the d triple c the party fundraising organization congressional candidates to pick individual candidates to contribute to well. I'll tell you i might. I'm i'm getting an instant migraine. 'cause it's not my business normally to advise democratic donors but these are trying times so what i would do is use. That thing to kids love called the internet. I will check out. Larry sabbaticals crystal ball report. The cook political report which is excellent. Stu rothenberg some of the great handicappers and read up. 'cause they're only two dozen congressional races that normally count. They've all got websites. Put your money into into those places and give them hard dollars your money at the campaign committee. I but when in doubt you have a little extra find to give to the d. trip. There's kind of a layer of overhead but there the official committee can't go wrong giving to both due to work to pick a few races there also bundling organizations that do list but you you can do your own research. Have a little fun. We're at a time here. But a plug. I think for the great book right and we forgetting our plugs here. Was that your transition. Did i screw it up. No i wanna commend to everyone. Descent the radicalization. The republican party in its capture of the court. If you really want to know how we got here and jackie just the final word before we go. Have you been surprised by cavenaugh on the bench and What say you about the future. The court given the fact that the republican party been so successful. And populating it. I haven't really been surprised by him. He's been every bit as conservative as he'd given us reason to expect he would be but he's also A bit of a speaking of hacks his background is as something of a political hack and so he has shown along with the chief justice. John roberts a sort of sensitivity to the american mainstream that he does that ah by his some of his boats in his writings. Doesn't you know sides. With chief. Justice john roberts and sometimes amy coney barrett to to Not go as far as the bar right and that includes justices sam alito and neal gorsuch And clarence thomas would like to go. So i think it's because they're more of an instrumentalist but make no mistake. Cavenaugh wants to be in the end at the same place. That sam alito wants to be and So it's just a matter of time. And he also came out of politics in a way the others exact. That's why that's why. I with all fineness. Use the word..

"Spotify you can even click in the lower right hand corner of apple podcast in san the latest edition to friends. You want to hate you but if you have a may try it and who knows it may stick and that helps us. Get the word out. Alright dr axelrod l. ellen writes in and says i know murphy claims the progressive bloc is singing sending signals. They're not gonna vote on the infrastructure. Bill in favor of a more bernie style bill. But i do wonder if the progressive bloc is more focused on truly solving climate crisis issues in a way that is not the mitch doomed green new deal as a young person who absolutely anxiety written about ridden the future especially around climate crisis. Perhaps that is who they are listening to. What do you think is a path forward for climate action. Why think we've seen in last week or so couple awakes. How dire climate and how real climate changes What's you know in the northwest and There's no question that this is an existential threat. And what i've been talking to. One of my former. Staffers is the Deputy secretary of energy now. And i talked to him about you. Know this Whether to invest in transmission or an island mods or they. We need to do renewable. There's no questions about it you do. You need a mix of Low you know local and rooftop solar. Which bernie wants and transmission because a lot of the place where the sun is is. I know one lives near there. So would we have to do this so we're going to do this. There's no question about that. This is a huge focus. Going have to be a huge focus of any infrastructure. Bill and that again is probably going to be what they take up reconciliation Because it's not so much a part of the mansion republicans think it'll be in there. It's hat while it has to be an incredibly well funded. Look my you know. My grandchildren asked me. You know that your grandpa. You're a us senator You know if they if they asked me like fifty years from now. Grandpa your us. Senator wyden you do anything about climate change and also why are you still alive. I guess say i did. I tried and We have to we have to. It is the existential threat. Or one of them. Okay for acts. We have a question from james. And james wants to know what are the rules and incumbent must follow in order to win reelection. Can you provide any examples of george w following those rules in two thousand four obama in two thousand twelve and of trump. Not being able to do it. In twenty twenty. Oh easy one. James trump was insane but anyway go ahead so The the fundamental rule is especially closely divided country that very few incumbent presidents can win referenda on referendums on themselves. And you wanna turn this into you. Want to turn the race into comparative Into a comparative exercise. That's what george. W. bush did with john carey in two thousand and four and two thousand and twelve. That's brooke obama did with Mitt romney and and basically define the race in terms that made it a choice and then define the terms of the choice in two thousand and twelve. it was. Who's gonna fight for the middle class when it comes to the economy That turned out to be a very powerful powerful message versus versus romney in terms of trump. He never turned it into he. Never successfully turned it into a choice. he is so a narcissistic that You know he makes himself the center of everything and he turned it into a referendum on himself in many ways And he lost that race. They tried fleetingly to you. Know paint a biden as leftist. that didn't fly they. They went after his competence that didn't fly but basically it was about trump and the and and there was a thumbs down verdict on trump. I say one word on that. Yes covid well. Of course if handling his handling of go yes. There's no doubt and the circumstances in two thousand and twenty. I mean without cove it. I think it's it's a you know. I think you could argue. That trump would have won. If he had handlery alexei handle it well he would have won but just his handling of it made him the center of him and it was all about him and Except it wasn't about him taking any accountability right. No no. that's the great lesson of the trump era. Shame is dead and politics used to bring some order but with a nut psychopath maniac. The shame ray doesn't work okay. Devon has a question for mike murphy he says. I know the conventional wisdom. Is that the orange crybaby. I assume that's a reference to trump and to santos are the odds on favorites for the republican nomination. Two thousand twenty four as we discussed but it but who in your great political wisdom. Maybe it isn't a question for no it is in your great political wisdom. Is the dark horse candidate that no one is yet paying attention to but should be well devon great question Beware conventional wisdom Presidential politics primary politics very dynamic. They're always moving so we don't. We don't yet know yet. The midterms are going to create some stars. But you're right. the big godzilla is trump.

You don't even know her name So he goes well. We'll find it out. I had a class lasts a public speaking class across campus with his roommate who was a big offensive guard. And so that's I think was spurred him on to say They seem to be spending a lot of time together and so we would walk across campus and so we on the way there. We were doing public speaking on nutrition. So I said Oh well by the way what did you have for breakfast. That was nutritious. And he said Not a really good day. I was running late but there were these amazing brownies on the counter. I ate those and and no mention of thanks for bringing them right so I brought them on a plate. You know not paper so real plate so it has to be returned see right smart but guess guess he returned the plate micro turn the plate and he said I know I didn't throw that note away which said head to Gerald and Mike in Parentheses he said I might have put it behind some things on the bulletin board so he never knew but Mike was going to make sure he returned at the plate. And that's how we got started dating so did it get serious quickly. Ordered date for a long time or what happened now. We dated three months and he he proposed I guess he knows he knew he wanted you from the window. And then after you knew it quickly to right he did so and and said that was quick. We had a year engagement. How did you know? Obviously he was interested in you from the beginning. When did you know that this might be a guy that you might be interested in marrying? And he was just a good like salt of the earth person you know And I really adored his family when I met them Emin Marianna so you really went to movie on our first date alone and I remember after the movie. Do you remember what you saw. I think it was breakfast club. So so choice. Yeah Breakfast Club We had a little kiss afterward. And then stop kissing the thing when the credits were finished and I was like I really like the sky. Yes Oh so usually movie credits are. Decent decent length of time law got married in nineteen eighty six right. Yes so that was what about you dated for about a year or so. Yeah we had an engagement for their engagement so you graduated from. FIC With a degree in marketing. Right College of business. Yes and But you were also planning on being a surgeon in studying for your mcat at the same time so not then. Actually that was that was We had Mitchell. Our first born. Mike was with Chrysler Credit Corporation and he was transferred to Atlanta and then Savannah and in Savannah. He had a horrific car crash Assem I was parked in Outer Lane And it was a flatbed with no it was hauling nothing and he was not even in the vehicle. The driver had stopped to. I guess. Try to find out where the docks loading docks where in Savannah and It was in rush hour traffic and came around curve and didn't even so must have seen at the last second. You know if somebody's in front of you and jerks out of the way and you have no response time But jerk the wheel to the left And the whole engine just came through the passenger seat so it was. It's quite terrible. He spent a month in the hospital He had dislocated his hip and broke out. The you know socket and broke his humorous you know the big bone in the arm and broke his jaw and four stitches in his tongue. And things like that. Just I serious. They said he would have died. Had he not had such a big chest frame yeah he would have any had collapsed lung and not a problem so he got out of the car in the middle of the traffic and thankfully wasn't far from the hospital and a nurse off-duty behind him or down the road put on her flashers got out because he got out and then of course fell to the ground And we saw the ambulance come in front of Best Mitchell and I because I was he mike was gonna take him to childcare and I said no go ahead you do it. I'll have time to take him. And and so we waited for the ambulance to go by and then all the traffic was backed up. And of course I didn't know is my husband and so I was like Mitchell. We need to go through this neighborhood the back way. So let's do that. There's a terrible crash and as soon as I got to trust company bank at the time and I was the marketing director for them. And doing right what I want. You know marketing sales. It was marketing and I had all these messages. And so my secretary Adman said. And here's one from the hospital probably wanting some sponsorship for us to be involved in something as a bank and something thing just made me you know. Say I'm sure you know God's blessings to say call and I did and he'd been an accident. Went down there air and he was three months in recovery After so that episode led to to be interested in San at dead not particularly particular therapy because they didn't even prescribe therapy is crazy. You know. They brought him home to our -partment on a stretcher. But I got interested in medicine Jason so we moved back home after that to Tallahassee and I said I I'd like to go back to school to be a doctor I I think that was my calling and so I took all the prerequisites which like I said. We're many because my biology. They didn't and have the necessary. Science class had nothing yes and so I had to start from scratch which normal people studying marketing tried to avoid science as much as possible right. Exactly Right And so I took all the prerequisites had applied to the PIM's program that they used to before we had a medical school at Florida state. took the cat and was in biochemistry and histology and our second son was born. And that was the end of that that I was in school and I had to withdraw and was not going to happen. Next sperry involved medically you. You were in school. Had your son Nick and He was born with some pretty significant special. Needs yes So tell me a little bit about that in the obvious impact that had on you and your family The physicians were completely had. Just we're trying everything and testing for everything that they possibly could he The first month he was too good couldn't wake him to feed. Kim had a very hard I mean he would have just slept on and that would have been an end of him and so it took a lot of valiant effort to to pull him through that first month and then by month to he wouldn't stop screaming so and projectile vomiting limiting and all kinds of issues. You'd feed them and take forever to feed and then he'd throw up half or more than half of everything you gave him so we were feeding him like every every other hour David. What was going on at the now? No we didn't We had multiple hospitalizations at Tim. H great. Neurology their doctor. I Ala A he they referred us down to Shans Teaching Hospital you know some people love it We did not They argued over. You know who's carry was going to be under whether it was going to be neurology or gastroenterology allergy and they discharged his to the Ronald McDonald House. You know over the weekend and no one in the facility could sleep So my call them and within screaming and said we cannot be in this facility. I mean no no the did though. I know the family family stay there. I didn't know that the patients would stay there sometimes too. Yeah 'cause I guess insurance. They pay over the weekend fishing of testing going on something like that. And so when we brought him in They had a big table of all neurology and a gastro all there at the table and nick proceeded to projectile tell vomit all over everything they had on the table And so they saw it. It was amazing. And how old is he at this point point. He is four months at this time and then they were like okay. We're admitting again But basically they sent us home with on Valium said is that for me or for him. I mean somebody's got beat. Somebody's gotTa have something around here is my skin was peeling like a snake doc. my face was from this stress. Jeremy and Mike was traveling he was out of town three nights a week and I had a toddler Adler Mitchell and I had this baby and it was just rough. I mean he had seizure disorders. He'd stopped breathing. Turn Blue He couldn't tolerate even the you know the heat turning on with the wind across the master bedroom I had to cover him like like a little bird. He was just so sensitive to any kind of sensory stimulus So how did you deal with that. You're just trying to survive for a little bit and you're like okay. They've sent us to what is known as one of the Best Hospital for pediatrics in the area and they don't know and so they sent his home and then our pediatrician referred us to eggleston listen in Atlanta so we went there while they didn't know what was going on they sent us to a specialist who might at Nyu So we boarded the plane with neck and flew. NYU and everything was cash is very interesting. He had a lot of different meds there wasn't any support in the state of Florida at that time. In fact nick was one of the first clients to go on The Medicaid waiver at the time it was just introduced reduce Tucker and Florida and we had a really jam up case manager. So were the meds helping You tell if they were making a difference or they know they really didn't he was unraveling and other things to keep in front projectile vomiting. But not really I mean we. He ended up to cook his like cream of rice in like nutrition. And put it in a feeder bottle. Cut The nipple off at the top and just basically quickly for you know. Feed it to him like that to be heavy enough to stay down So he was failure to thrive you now now even as valiantly as we were working and so when we took him to Nyu Her name was Dr Axelrod. I will. I'll never forget her. We had a two hour appointment. And he she documented he had effortless. Ms Switched just means just throwing up. Just just run right out. I mean like nothing and she wanted every doctor's name that had been associated with this care and she wrote blistering hiring letters to the physicians This child has needed a funded placate. Which is a physical Sphinx after they build a stinker because it's a physiological stinker otherwise they control the flow gate gauges when the stomach is full and it closes down and so they did that refunded placate? They inserted a G. Tube so he could eat and not vomit everything up and finally he started growing Oh yes but the. The first year was just horrendous to go through the first year of life. You know struggling thinking you're going to die and nobody knows what's wrong with them and and kind of feeling like the doctors have given up on your back Hoe L.. They said I was a neurotic. Mother they put it on you. Oh Yeah you're just it's your neurosis of this because in fact they didn't take me seriously until my husband. Mike AAC had him and took him in. I was busy doing something I said I really we were having a party for goodness Sakes Christmas party. I don't know how I was planning on that. Ah but I said really just.

Mutter cancer center, she says reconstructive surgeries have greatly improved. And yet she grease that looking good can have some unexpected. Aw, Bax, you know, if your stomach sleeper, and you have an implant it's like sleeping on a frisbee. Sometimes Dr Axelrod now regularly discusses the option of going flat with her patience. These things still the majority of women will choose reconstruction rather than going flat into his it's the image of our bodies. We want to be whole beauty is something in in the mind in the heart. These women hope to change that perception, we're just as in. And we're just as much women as they were before hand. There is a growing awareness and acceptance of going flat, they say this ad campaign for a national, Jim. A fashion show last year and the websites that offer stories sell fees and a sisterhood.
