We use entercom on click flow raising around right now. Funding and people are messing saying hey. How do we invest right so those are actually opportunities. He's that are teeing up because of intercom collecting email addresses in there otherwise those those would have fallen to the wayside because they don't know what to do next right so giving people opportunity to have that touch point because that's that's what sales is right getting that conversation with people getting started and directing them the right way collected information even enriching that lead you are able to do that with things like <hes> intercom yet yeah and in general they are worth it. They convert really well. In our comm- works great. There's also a lot of other channels out there that were extremely well or offers offers out there.

Biden's Next Move
"Wc thrill ride that will change forever some sundays nine pm on cnn tired of spending hundreds of dollars for prescription glasses visit xeni today at xeni dot com slash cnn hey everyone i'm david chalian the cnn political director and this is the daily dc thanks so much for listening today on the podcast biden's next move that is what everyone is on the watch for in these next several days and weeks leading up to the second debate which will take place here on cnn july thirtieth and thirty first at the end of the month one new data point for you to have is that the biden campaign revealed today that it raised twenty one point five million dollars in the second quarter so people ditch outraged raised joe biden in this quarter in terms of money now joe biden is a top every single poll is the leader of the race and pete buddha judge doesn't seem to be cracking five percent much these days so i don't want to suggest that a buddha the judges somehow trading places with biden in terms of his place in the race but it just emphasize is eight one eight huge hall buddha judge had an be another not a full disappointment i would say but it's twenty one point five million is nothing to sneeze at but yet another moment for biden where the team probably came in a little shy of where they want it to be which was top of the field now they made it and certainly would have thought the twenty one point five million would be top of the fundraising field this quarter perhaps not anticipating just how much cash mayor pete was a sweeping up now the biden campaign is right to point out he got in this race april twenty fifth pete buddha judge had be entirety of the second quarter meaning twenty four extra days to fundraise from april first twentyfourth before joe biden it opened his account and within the race and started collecting money that is true but just step back for a moment and take a look at what happened here in the money race and that is that the mayor of a town with a hundred thousand people who had no national political profile until just a few months ago out raised eight former vice president of the united states with an enormous fundraising network already in place that is huge forbid you know a biden did outrace a bernie sanders who raised eighteen eighteen million dollars for this quarter around where he was last quarter but that's pretty close competition there too so joe biden is not gonna have all the democratic money to himself that's clear would also has become clear after the first debate in the polls that have come out after joe biden is not gonna have the top tier of this race all to himself he's got real competition there so that begs the question what does biden do next what is if there is a need or a thought inside the campaign to make an adjustment what is it an end the kennedy believe an adjustment needs to be made or is it perceived as sort of the natural laws of politically gravity taking place and this is the fight a they always imagine they would be and here's the thing we're one data point that suggests there is at least trying something different on the part of the biden campaign which is to sit down and talk to a journalist unanswered questions joe biden is sitting down with our own chris cuomo fern interview in will first air on cnn friday morning at six am in any damn and a you'll see more throughout the day so joe biden sitting down first first national television interview since his role out when he was on the view an when he sat down with robin roberts on good morning america back in april so we are now two and a half months from then an he had and sat down for national interview so at least there's eight tactical change whether or not this represents eight true change or shift in strategic thinking about how joe biden and his campaigner gonna run this race that remains to be seen will get clues about i think later today joe biden is kicking off a two day trip the iowa what sounds different on the stump from him how's he brush off the debate performance we saw what he did sort of pushing just on the bussing issue where it's a comma harris but i think one of the things here that got a little lost in the coverage this wasn't just about a what his bussing policy was that's not what happened on that debate stage that was just the vehicle colfer the larger event that happened which is comma harris very effectively skewered joe biden about his past put him on the defensive he didn't defend his recor and well in the overall unsteady debate performance for him it began disappears this notion that perhaps he's the only one that can go toe to toe with donald trump now he's still leads on that question as we've discussed this week on the podcast in are poll in today's nbc news washington post poll joe biden is seen by democrats fern away as the one that could defeat trump but something shifted after that debate on that school end that was no mistake by commonly harris this was not a decision when you just look at the political strategy here to just go after joe biden on bussing or civil rights or or what have you this was a decision asian by comma harris and her team to not let this first huge opportunity with eighteen million eyeballs to not let this one go by to not wait first sometime down the road tie heavier moment this was this opportunity is before them they've decided we must sees this and the way he sees this opportunity is you take a chip away at the front runner and that's precisely what she did end so it's that larger point i think that was what fundamentally shifted in that debate joe biden pushback on the substance last week but i think starting tonight and tomorrow in iowa we're gonna see has joe biden adjusted his performance on the stump is he interacting with voters in the different ways he's starting to take more questions from voters does he handle cuomo's questions in the interview in a way that exudes confidence in short foot this or is he answering from a defensive crouch 'cause see you know his campaign told him you should sit for an interview we gotta start talking to make sure that we don't have a debate performance in detroit the way that we had in miami let's air some of this stuff out there show that you can actually take the critical questions that's what to watch for this week is biden's next move is there is there retooled stump speech is there brushing offer any kind of acknowledgment of a debate performance that may have under will even his core supporters does this interview suggests that he's about to do a ton of interviews and try to appear in many places in sort of owning the narrative in defined the the narrative for the twenty twenty race every day that all is what i'm watching for out of this july fourth weekend and then there's the subplot of so what is commonly harris due to take this momentum and keep it going is there an opportunity for her cabinet on the rise and i'm sure before long you're gonna see a whole ton of stories across the media landscape reali investigating her shining a spotlight on her like she has never experienced before when you were on the rise towards the top in presidential politics you start receiving a level of scrutiny that is really unique to that moment for canada and how she withstands that is going to be critical to watch but also what is the campaign proactively doing now harness this momentum and keep turning into vietnam virtuous cycle after virtuous cycle for them to keep writing this positive wave as long as possible so she's also out night well senator harris had a she sort of turn from what was a very successful debate performance to now eight candidate who harnesses the momentum out of those two things i am more eager to watch over the holiday weekend in terms of understanding the dynamic of the race of where we are probably more than any other components
"Wc thrill ride that will change forever some sundays nine pm on cnn tired of spending hundreds of dollars for prescription glasses visit xeni today at xeni dot com slash cnn everyone i'm david chalian the cnn political director and this is the daily dc thanks so much for listening today on the podcast the summary said that the stage stage of the race for the twenty twenty democratic nomination we seem to be in the fallout from that first debate was clear saw that in the polls so that and the kennedy interaction what's happening now as we turn pass the fourth of july holiday activity on the trail this campaign this race for the democratic nomination is going through a bit of a reset before the candidates arrive in detroit afford that second debate and here's what i mean by that few data points for you one elizabeth warren's baso so fundraising quarter the learn campaign clearly was looking for a moment of their own to make this news and they got it by waiting out be other top four competitors buddha judge biden sanders harris all put out their fundraising numbers ready and morning waited for her own moment in the sun today up by announcing that her campaign in the second quarter raised nineteen point one million dollars and here's the thing is you know about elizabeth warren it's all grassroots fundraising as she has made a central part of her campaign message in her appeal to democrats she does not spend time behind closed doors talking some millionaire fat cats in big ball rooms doing traditional fundraising she has sworn off that the campaign and she has made it an entirely i early grassroots driven operation and there is a big question mark when she announced that at the beginning of the year if that would work this is more than triple what she raised in the first quarter sylvie ability to do it has now been proven and of course why is this happening well if you look at elizabeth warren's second quarter in this race that is when she began to move and get her foothold into the solidified top tier of this race as it stands at the moment this matches the momentum she was building over that second quarter camila harris as you saw she raised just shy of twelve million for the quarter her campaign says a little left and she raised in the first quarter about even but just under seems what she posted for the first quarter and remember we learned she raised two million dollars online justin the day after the debate so her number could have been a lot lower had her debate performance not been as good as it was which kind of mirrors her overall standing in the race a bit more static that we had seen prior to her big break out debate performance this warren number though not only did she best harris but she puts up a number of bigger than bernie sanders be other massive growth grassroots fundraising monster in the race who is in eighteen million dollars for the quarter that's it's no small thing this battle for warren versus sanders over the progressive left and who can carry that mantle all the way through these nominating contest this is gonna be with us for a while they're both gonna be properly fund it all the way through that seems pretty clear but it also seems clear that they are splitting their splitting the financial resources in this grassroots democratic army out there i mean add their numbers together you're in nearly forty million dollars that is almost entirely just online small dollar donations between those two left wing canada it's a warning sanders and then you see them battling in the polls is well and so this undercurrent of of of warned versus sanders clearly going to continue as both of them obviously are trying to top of the front runner joe biden but this is about this wearing number is part of this summer reset of the campaign she's not just moving in the polls she's moving on money she has built eight pretty substantial organization especially in iowa you go down the list of sort of campaign metrics and elizabeth warren is hitting her marks that's one dynamic in this summer reset other is the big joe biden speech this weekend in south carolina where he really now trying to turn the corner and i think he successfully did so for the most part from constant defense he's been playing for the last two and a half weeks ever since at that new york fundraiser he used the example full of those two segregationist democratic senators that he opposed their views but worked with them and raised it up as an example of a bygone era of civility and progress in the senate he was never really praising those segregationist nation asked but he clearly been on the defense ever since there have been demands from his opponents for apologies he refused to do so until finally he did so this weekend and i think it is really intriguing to look at how biden did this he talked in south carolina about an apology for misconception and apology that misconception may have led to some people being hurt by his remarks he didn't apologize for working with those blue dog democrats and i'm not sure that people were demanding that have him cory booker very much except in joe biden's apology reminded everyone that at one point in this process biden is demanding an apology from cory booker that never made any sense but nonetheless he accepted the vice president's remarks comma harris has also said that she appreciates the fact the vice president's scene to express and understanding that his words did indeed cours harmon hurt to some people as she noted on the debate stage in miami but that of course didn't stop her from still going at him for saying they still have very different positions on how they viewed bussing policy back in the seventies when comma harris was benefiting from it as a young student the notion that this was about bussing policy i think it's pretty much a distraction in many ways what would this whole harris versus biden exchanged words about in my mind with comma harris trying to take on on the front runner ain't land they blow to show democrats that she could take on v older white guy on the stage andy do so successfully so that democrats could start seeing her as somebody who could potentially take on donald trump if she wouldn't be the nominee in november twenty twenty this was about her trying to seize national focus moment that a debate gives you an show inability to score points on a big dog in the race and i really think this was this was geared at chipping away at joe biden's salida hold on the notion that he is the one that could defeat donald trump most easily by the way by and got another a poll out this weekend from nbc news washington post that shows he is the one of all the top five tested against trump who is far and away the most likely the defeat donald trump in these early general election matchups other for their in a dead heat there basically in statistical tie with trump but in the poll by as a ten point lead on trump again front election that is a little less than a year and a half away that people are not really focused on those choices yet but but nonetheless it's yet another selling selling point provide and say look here i am the one that can beat donald trump so what kamala harris is trying to do in that debate with chip away at that now with the folks trying to do is call into question comma harris his commitment and discipline to her position she staked out on the debate stage because as you know she said last week and i were well this could be a tool in the tool kit of dealing with issues around integration she'd been clarified that to say we don't have in modern day twenty nineteen the same kinds of school immigration issues that existed back in the sixties and seventies and and therefore there was still in her mind eight disagreement with joe biden about that you know nineteen seventies position and on bussing will see how much that debate continues to play out but what what's clear is that biden use this moment to not only apologized but to guard against the coming attacks on the ninety four crime bill on the bankruptcy bill really trying to wall off his long legislative history and focus everyone's attention on his eight years is brock obama's vice president any lean more heavily into his association with brock obama this weekend then he has at any point dayton this race and i would imagine we're going to see more of that from joe biden he employed that line finally that hillary clinton employed back in the two sixteen twenty sixteen race against sanders which is you know she said at the time when sanders went after her hey he picked it'd be secretary of state i'll trust his judgment even though he deferred with me on rock biden used the same line this weekend saying you know what brock obama and a team of lawyers vetted all of my history all of my remarks they went through with a fine tooth comb and he he picked me i'm gonna trust his judgment about anyone else's and you know to a democratic crowd that is a potentially a very successful message so we have the biden apology yes it may have taken two and a half weeks but showing that he has the ability to move from defense the offense his campaign and the kennedy himself foreshadowing a desired coming fight over medicare for all vs perfecting obama care he's eager to get in that fight a showing his ability to turn the corner here with a forceful defense of his record's was an important part of this summer reset as well end obviously we are also learning that this field is going the shift throughout this summer today we're getting word that eric swallow twelve the democratic congressman from california is expected to drop out of the race a he'll announce his own decision and reasons why but obviously he is not gain much of any kind of traction in this race she tried very much to have a debate moment that would propel him forward word when he went to joe biden said time to pass the torch that fell flat it seemed and didn't work end according to the dnc rules even those photos already qualified to be on the debate stage it looked like according the tie breaking rules set up by the dnc that he may actually be bumped by montana governor steve bullock offered the debate stage in detroit and therefore we may lose out on an opportunity to be before tens of millions of people and try and get a foothold so young democratic congressman from california's air soil who last week cancelled of july fourth holiday trip to new hampshire and now has a press conference a set up later today in california looks like he's going to be exiting from this race a he may just be the first some folks may hang on through that detroit debate where they have an opportunity to be on the big stage but after that when the debate stage basically gets window to one in the threshold double firm what's required for the qualifications and his money begins to dry up you're going see a lot of candidates in this race throughout august start making real decisions about whether or not a moving ahead in the fall with their campaigns is a truly viable option and so

"Ways that our kids are affected by online life and celebrity culture just keep adding up for the Colson. Center I'm John Stonestreet this is break point. The highest paid earner on Youtube is not old enough to get a driver's license. In fact, he's nine his name is Ryan. His channel May twenty, six, million dollars last year and fact two of the top three global earners on Youtube are under ten years old. The third highest earner is a six year old Russian girl who brought in eighteen million dollars recently, lawmakers in France passed a bill that contained similar labor protections for child social, media stars as for child actors models while protecting kids is a laudable thing to do. It feels A. Bit Strange calling this new law a win several months ago in a breakpoint commentary, we discussed teenage pop music, Star Name Billy Irish who swept the two thousand twenty grammy awards are concerns about how island had been exploited to make money apply here too when childhoods are directed toward building media, empires, Young Youtube Stars in elementary age social media influencers earn money by broadcasting their lives online and then charging money for ad placements. All of this enabled, of course, by their parents and our society and especially weird but largely unquestioned societal norm is revealed in. All of this, our culture idolizes the concept of agency justifying almost anything by the capacity to act according to One's granted wishes all of our postmodern moral claims about sexuality hinge on agency. If an encounter was consensual, it was okay. If a baby is wanted, then it's really baby if a couple wants to stay married, they should if they don't, they shouldn't no other questions to be asked however does anyone actually believed that a six year old girl who thinks she's just playing at the park with her dad but his actually being broadcast and millions. Of Subscribers Online has agency isn't even possible for her to understand realize that she's the star of kindergarten version of the Truman show of course, not kids have no concept of the dangers that kind of publicity not to mention that kind of money can pose for her personal and relational wellbeing. In fact, we only need check in on Corey Feldman or Britney Spears to see just what should be obvious that people meant to protect. THEM AREN'T French lawmakers concerned about how hard they work as noble was at intention may be the people meant to protect. Children are their parents. Still the problem created here is two pronged on the other side of the camera. That's pointed directly in the faces of celebrity kids are other kids who are obsessively consuming their content and are sold on a wrong idea of what life is ultimately all about even more new netflix documentary reveals just how much the success of social media companies hinges on our loss of agency and the social dilemma.

Bridled scribes the infiltration of bought created videos for children on Youtube botts determine what videos kids are watching, and then create mashups of images, songs, and Buzzword Hashtags in order to keep them.

Parents must diligently monitor what their kids are watching online. However, we must diligently push back on those parts of our digital culture that are now going largely unquestioned cultures most powerful, not where it is the loudest. But in what it normalizes screen time worldview messages, the inept concept of consent and yes child celebrity isn't children bear the image of God they exist because he loves them not so that they could fulfill the desires of parents or Internet consumers know French law no regulatory board at Youtube headquarters can ever replace a parent who simply pays attention.

7 Deadly Facebook Ads Mistakes You Must Avoid in 2020 | Ep. #1334
"Welcome to marketing school. The only podcast that provides daily top level marketing tips and strategies from entrepreneurs that practice what they preach and live what they teach. Let's start leveling up your marketing knowledge with your instructors. Neil Patel and Eric Su. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we are going to talk about six deadly facebook ads mistakes. You must avoid in twenty twenty so mistake. Number one is well if you are taking advantage of look alike audiences in this day and age. You're kind of behind the game. Because facebook's algorithm is really good and when it comes to making a list of the people that are visited your site or people who visited key why pages or people that have converted. Because you can upload that as well you make the lookalike audiences and facebook does a pretty good job at in fact when I look at People's ads nowadays when I just Search you know. Why am I seeing this ad or click on it? A lot of them are just using similar to theirs right so they're basically using lookalike audiences. It seems like a very basic tactic but a lot of people still aren't doing just kind of targeting very narrow audiences. And you don't want to do that. You want to kind of open it up and tell this podcast Seven deadly facebook AD mistake. So you're GONNA have to give Toronto at six is just like a to even a number all right so number. Two a deadly mistake that we see people making is when they do the remarketing emails. They send people back to the same landing page that they originally already saw and didn't convert from if you pitch and some it doesn't convert sending him back to that same pitch usually doesn't work so if you're original website copy or video whatever may be was stat base very logical and they didn't convert. You May WANNA try showing a AD and a landing page does more emotional and vice versa. If your original pitch was more emotional you may wanNA show ad and a landing page does more logical when you're doing the remarketing. We found that that boosts conversions. Because you're trying a different message a different angle versus taking the same approach. That didn't work in the first place. All right so the other thing I'll say number three right here is not thinking through your fun. A lot of people generally will just try to push people to a product and trying to get them the by now in some cases. Let's say you have a higher dollar value product or service. So let's look at Neil night but both run ad agencies so if you look at it we have a longer sale cycle. We have a higher lifetime value so most people are just going to buy out the gate so you have to think about how most people don't know who you are. How can you target top of the funnel? Middle of the funnel and bonding the funnel top the fun of my be showing content like it might be like a podcast like this or might be a video. I think retarded people that watched that video or what went to page Brigham to a case study. And then what you can do there is. Then you can retarget those people to fill out a form for a free consultation or something like that but you have to think it through like thinking about how you're basically interrupting people as they're going through the feed. How can you give them something? That might be interesting to them. First and then take him down the journey and then get them to convert so some people you can direct but sometimes if it's a different type of audience you gotta think about playing the long game and then hopefully you can hear the vacuum cleaner in the background. But if you do I do apologize. O- another mistake that we see people making with their facebook. Ads is they take people directly product page and get them to buy and there's nothing wrong with that but what works better is creating educational base content and selling within it so good example of this is only which is a skin care company here in the United States they may be global. I don't even know if they're US company but they have their products Oliver Stores in the United States and they had products like how to remove dark circles. Under your eyes right like a pug that removes dark circles and they would just send you to page that says hey give it to your dark circles when they switched it up having education article on how to remove the dark circles under your eye and within the article. They also sell their products. Their conversions went through the roof there. Cbs's went down and overall their campaigns. Were much more profitable so you can educate and sell at the same time but a lot of people just selling their facebook ads versus educating and selling in the same landing page which is much more effective. Yeah another thing is a traffic and funnels. They do this. They basically teach you how to do coaching and consulting right. I think they're doing north of eighteen million dollars right now but they create a lot. What's the company name? Traffic and funnels never heard them check them out but are super smart people now they have like a real estate fund too but they run a ton of ads meaning. They don't let their ads go stay They don't just use one ad over a long period of time there recording like I dunno. I think like ten to fifteen adds new ADS each time. They do it when the bathroom and they're just constantly recycling so what's going on right now is whenever. I see their ads when I'm on. Facebook it's always different. It's different it's a different perspective. But they're driving you to the same funnel but that's interesting to me and actually I actually met the guy last week. The two guys I met them. And they're like yeah. We just crank out a bunch of ADS. Because it's fresh right. They're giving value and it's fresh and basically my reaction was. I see your ads everywhere. That's the kind of effect that you WANNA. It's not the same ad over and over but you want to change things up because you don't want people to get bored and I think that's a big part of the reason why they've been so successful number six. We see a lot of people using image in tech space ads because they're too lazy Videos but if you can get your copyright in your videos. We're finding the videos. Outperforms boasts techs based images. But most people don't want to do them test them because it takes a lot more effort to create the videos and a lot of people like Videos don't work as well. It's because they're not coming up with the right copy in their videos or making it entertaining. If you can hit on problems people are facing an breakdown solutions within your video and go after the pain points. You're much more likely to convert than if you just have a simple image with text based copy. Yeah and the final thing. I'll say number seven for my in. His early are talked about using lookalike audiences. And you know people targeting to narrow the thing I'll say is not targeting broad enough so when we look at traffic and funnels or look at Sam Ovens some of it is over thirty six million dollars a year. Traffic funnels over eighteen million a year. So they do well. They're teaching. You do stuff so when I look at their targeting. It's very broad. It's their targeting like Marie Four. Liotta targeting like these big names you know in the digital marketing world or the online entrepreneur world. It actually ends up working. Otherwise it's like. Would they keep the AD running a stupid? They're probably not stupid. And I I would recommend going to facebook Ad Library and just seeing which adds are actively running right now and which ones they shut down that will give you a little more insight for how you run your facebook ads. So that is it for today. Go TO MARKETING SCHOOL. That live ally phone application to learn about our growth accelerator.

"What's up chris broussard and i am here with my partner rob parker at the gather we are very odd couple that's right joined crucify me every day as we give you the hottest feisty a sports takes that you won't hear anywhere else therefore the director rob parker is a wish come the more reasonable but what felicity october with chris broussard and rob parker on apple podcasts for once he i heart radio app or wherever you listen to podcasts and what is going on every buddy john middle cop bringing our podcast back at it again maybe all i mean this is this is legit summer july first as i'm recording this july fourth weekend happy fourth of july gotta love america gazza love america there's great week you could argue like i love thanksgiving 'cause i like to eat chris miss used to be cool 'cause you get presence but you get older like i just like holidays the revolve around hall so engine son i feel like it'd be number one for me i i absolutely love fourth of july so happy fourth of july everyone everyone listening banks you know this is we've been doing this podcast about a year and a half and having a good time doing it would have been two years i don't even know it's it's it's been a minute maybe year and a half will keep it going were were the summer now now we're in the summer so today we have i i kinda delve in bnb aj free agency which was just nuts i mean absolutely nuts kind of all determined by the two thousand eleven draft well i just happened in two thousand eleven working for the eagles to be at the nfl draft and then brought both up this morning kind of looking through it and like i said why there was a lot of similarities between the two draft in the first round both drafts were just littered in are repeat littered with elite hall of fame level players but the major difference when i looked at the two drafts is dnb eight the majority of the players in that draft had been on several teams while the majority of the players in the first round in the two thousand eleven draft who were really good had been on one aunt it got me thinking yesterday 'cause there's so many talks about free agency in nfl free agency and i i've said over and over i think nfl free agency see has gotten a lot more interesting because of trades we saw they got many trade we saw last year with pro bowl level players odell beckham junior a frank clark d ford i mean we saw some pretty big name players get traded just thinking the last couple of years brandin cooks jarvis landry some really good players get praised the last several years because for the most part if you if you draft in will go through the two thousand eleven some first round here in a minute you're not letting the guy go and even after eight years of they're still in the league player like many guys manby draft they're not hitting free agency and i say it all the time they nfl is much more fan friendly that way for the season could you get to keep your players now they nbs is much more fan friendly for the off season because it's just mayhem i saw a tweet today over three billion dollars were given out don't ever get it twisted nb eight is the greatest financial partnership in the history of america it has made more people ceo level money then any business now the nfl because of the depth in a number of people working in the business coaches and players have made more millionaires probably been any i dunno this factually but i would put up nfl so against any other industry has created more millionaires maybe maybe some have stock wise you'll be like factor in you know like a you know for one caves and stuff like amazon i'm just talking about actual employees working for the company and when you factor in the players and when you factor in the coaches the nfl's made more millionaire so there's there's different ways of skin a cat now if yesterday you get all the people there were tweeting in reach waiting world and we are proud most people listening were interacting some way if you get those people watch the game like that's the one thing the nfl has already nbs is when the game start that is worthy nb aim at early nfl matters when they nb eight when the game starts it's not until the playoffs where you really care now i do think nb i really value off season nfl the nfl draft is always better manby draft free agency definitely the last ten years have historically been pretty shitty just because top players do not hit the market why would you let a top player at the markets were signing worst case scenario franchise him but i do think they be edition like i said of these younger general managers the trays really help well let's look at the two thousand eleven direct kyrie irving kemba walker klay thompson quiet leonard tobias harris jimmy butler and then just two other guys they got a combined two hundred eighty million dollars nikola booja vich in both donna but john rich that's gotta sign utah pretty good player from the pacers that's just kyri kemba kemba is gonna be stuck for the celtics klay hall of famer collide hall of famer tobias little overpay but he's a good player and jimmy butler i mean that's pretty a group i mean you got kyrie's got a championship clay got three wide got do a lot of juice there in that little group is insane draft so big reason why this nbs free agency was so big is because that draft you i mean how many guys you got ten guys right they're they're blue chip players in five or six or elite players will that same year in the nfl think about this it had a historic draft cam newton went one he's won mvp just teams hoople second player pick i don't know the name von miller first ballot hall of famer a super bowl mvp couple of picks later aj green one of the better receivers every generation pig later patrick peterson pb twentyone he's riding a hall of famer but he's been in the league corner for a long period of time now he's got suspended next pick who joe hall of famer probably the best player in the history they lanta falcons jj watt hall of famer tyrone smith hall of famer cam jordan hall really damn a he's damned good you know favor that's a pretty good draft think about this camp same team von same team aj green same team patrick peterson same team who will same team jj watt same team tyron smith same team cam jordan same team kyle rudolph addressing the first round same thing think about that let's go through the mbh guys kyrie's on his third different team kemba second clay outlier of this group one team and he's really wide a little more like an nfl guy the warriors would never gonna let him go quiet leonard if he joined the lakers will be on his third team tobias harris on his fifth jimmy butler fourth by donald john of its fourth and fifth nikola breach of its ban on a bunch so just think about the two sports the difference in what they run in listen i'm entertained by both i think the nfl has a better business model i think some sort of i dunno franchise tag is the right word but some sort of incentive not like the financials incentive if you did the same thing where you could give the guy in extra year and more guaranteed cash in the nfl they would always resign because the money is so powerful the nfl players like an extra twenty million million dollars guaranteed is a lot we just saw kevin durant yesterday has a torn achilles turned down sixty million dollars extra from the warriors didn't even hesitate didn't even flinch would never come back to the warriors 'cause he's gotta mix kyri that makes so money in studio doesn't even matter if they be be income on the court for some of these guys is like their side job it's kind of crazy to think about because like dame lillard i googled yesterday i'm always fascinated by total earnings of contracts he just got that super max extension and he's he's kind of a little more like an nfl guy right you never let him leave you organization now granted in ambi eight you could never wanna believe but he might wanna leave so you have to do a good job in the nfl is songs you keep paying him and giving up their contracts you're gonna stay win loser draw they lord when this contract comes doing end will have make three hundred and eighteen million dollars in india three hundred eighteen million dollars and i would imagine no nbs no nfl player i think i'd look this up before like peyton manning's career earnings they have never got that high so the the money is way different end there is a big supply and demand there's less top players now a little like a quarterbacks you know supply and demand is why quarterback gets so much money but i really think when you look at these two draft very similar elite hall of fame level players the nfl all these guys stayed on the same team like that's ultimately how you want you leak you wanna be able to build teams build players a the fans are gonna love that shit matters it really does andy nfl like i'm looking at peyton manning peyton manning is make two hundred fifty million dollars in his career two hundred fifty million dollars they were gonna make sixty five million dollars more that's pretty nuts in i'm glad the nfl does not have all these players jumping all over the place that that wouldn't be enjoyable like timmy jj watt just resonates little more but he's that's real jones without bond miller's a denver bronco now these guys like is von miller gonna end his career on the broncos maybe not did you walk any place where else for sure we'll jones but the ten years of their peak hall of fame career is gonna be the same team i think at the end of the day and again i'm not trying it sat there and then that's still pretty cool this podcast began with a simple premise premise but things don't always go as planned in something happened during production something no one expected i'm going to let you in a dark secrets subjective tried to hide from almost everyone in the past few years i can't sleep at night when i am able to sleep at i have nightmares not the kind of nightmares at a child might have but the kind that could only come from the mind of a grown adult who seen an read a little too much i'm hoping that if i can get this off my chest maybe just maybe i'll be able to shake these killers out of my head long enough to get some much needed rest from i heart radio in tender foot tv muster percents insomniac listen and subscribe to monster presented insomniac at apple podcasts on the iheartradio app or wherever you listen to podcasts okay i actually sort of watching this i forget the name of it but showtime has this new show it's all about fox news an hour was created with a television show russell crowe is late actor and writer you can't even recognize russell crowe he got really fat he but it's not like a fat suit to be rodger ales the guys like left cnbc and msnbc who at the time i mean i it might still be but it was owned by ge jack welsh you know like one of the greatest ceos kind of screwed him it's it's a good it's a good one is well acted in part of it's only been one through wants one episode pry like ten episode season it's basically talking about how in i think it's gonna develop this way one just roger was you know had some issues but also like his business plan will be like a pr campaign and i say it all the time now about news networks in general msnbc cnn fox news when people get so worked up on twitter first some form of the number one role in the job of these networks especially nowadays is the make money get ratings to sell advertise in make cash but the one thing fox news did and it was because led by him what's become like a pr vehicle for the republican aunt his idea was instead of going after every everyone in the news media just segment and just go after conservatives and basically they became the pr part not even say cnn and msnbc so you're basically the pr party for the liberals middle saint back but the one thing i've always thought about the nfl media and again i was kinda thrown into the budget the fire in philadelphia it's great it's a war zone nfl is covered like politics it's knowles bar it's just it's just a a war zone every day in a press conference in no matter who you are at any moment and article could be written about the dynamics internally i think we saw good example you know one of the biggest you know arguably probably the second biggest star in the league aaron rodgers behind tom brady a scathing article came out about rogers his coach organization the entire thing no one was off limits were in then be aj it actually operate a lot like fox news if you notice any reporter you reid on a on a on a player it's always pro the player because of me nfl or excuse me bnb eight d n b player has has all the juice so if you screw them over through the region over they will cut you out in the nfl and get another player i talked to a coach in mbh kind of need the star player like you need step courier kevin durant more and they need you see kind of have to be kind of an for the most part it's a pro empowerment player leak so everything you see it so pro player in the nfl during free agency in as we talked about kind of in the last segment like the reality is in the nfl like elite players in their prime in the nfl unlikely mbh who you're prime is in her mid twenties were in india you could play well in their thirties and you last a lot longer look guys don't become free agents that is why it was so nothing odell beckham change teams now he didn't change as a free agent but he he he was traded as twentyfive years old twenty six years old that's unheard of it's not normal that's why it was a big deal when the forty niners acquired jimmy grappler twentyfive years old i guess you just can't acquire those type players kind of in their youth in their physical prime in the nfl 'cause most times team just keeps them in the difference also has won a transaction happens in the nfl and i think i always say this the healthiest thing the nfl has going for like there are really agendas it's just you just kinda get it like it's actually happening like the reality of nfl we got a pretty good idea in a pretty good feel how every team kind of used their coats views their players a just a decent overview a cliff notes version of each team because because every year like all these reporters are writing just or just letting loose you have to be competitive in the nfl that way were nb eight you got no real clue because everything's all they love this guy they let us go ashley they hate him you know in the biggest free agent mood the best player in this class i guess it's quiet leonard with kevin durant and listen i i'm living in the bay area kevin durant's entire time here he is a remarkable player of all time i mean i'd argue is probably if you stayed healthy become become a top ten player of all time but like a lot of nfl players in the reason they end up hitting free agency eventually a team doesn't want 'cause they get hurt well kevin durant's unlike in like if you had a torn achilles in the nfl people not offering you a huge contract i didn't reid one person yesterday i was i feel like i was the only person even thinking this that every article i read was like oh this is a no brainer a no brainer a no brainer does give kevin durant's an astronomical amount of money and i was thinking the same thing hear what the warriors you're gonna offer two hundred thirty million dollars he has a torn achilles you're gonna miss next season and when he comes back he's gonna be thirty two years old in the nfl and me 'cause if that wasn't nfl player even if it was von miller and his primary who jones in his prime if he tore his achilles all of us reporters media people fans we all kind of red flag now i'm not trying to a just credit kevin durant's career it's remarkable but the day and age age or just the time of him being a top ten player or i mean hell he was considered the best player in the league are over like in then be eight that's the worst injury you could have a torn achilles it's a game changer worst injury you gonna the chances he's ever the same are slim to none in if if he would have been equivalent of an nfl player i feel like so many people would ask like are we sure he's ever gonna be okay 'cause i'm not i'm just not you know it's it's not like he's twenty six years old he's going to be thirty two when he comes back and he has a lot of miles he's a four year college player he came to then be eight after one year in college so he's been in the league since he was nineteen years old and i just think it's insane and i saw with kobe bryant a couple of years ago you see it all the time many nfl dudas one major injury and he's a shell of himself again were talking about human beings and i keep going back to this and i say it all the time people around the bay area about klay thompson ever since adrian peterson returned from the ac l l aliens speed but he he was running like three months and came back the next year won the nfl mvp he literally wasn't alien i do not think he was human an i stood by adrian a couple of times like on game day in pads he does not look like any running back i've ever seen in my life and i still feel like that's the barometer every player the tears and they feel oh it'll be good and we're kicking just pump the brakes i remember back in the day where we just took her time in august the forty niners some credit they're using jimmy grop all back in you can't rush these guys back from injury and i think the nfl at least their front offices 'cause they're not is desperate and i understand i mean kevin durant is remarkable and if he does bounce back to be the player that he was he's worth every penny but if he's if he's a shell of himself which we have seen historically time in and time again with players a tour of their achilles we see it in the nfl all the time it's a terrible investment an i i feel like i was the only person on the internet but even raise that question there are no brainer you gotta give money no brainer gotta give the money i get it for the nets and the knicks you gotta give the money but most times when you do that it's never the same in you wish three years later you did not give him the money in the hard part with kevin you won't know right away i remember in philly we sign ronnie brown in one practice then i was like why is this guy looks slower than me now again you would just over you see it in the nfl all the time with older players and when i say older i'm talking about thirty thirty one years old you're gonna tell in practice but when you guy comes back from injury especially a great player you kinda give them some time i'm navarro bowman coming back off the terrible injury he's after rehabs like oh just give him some time gimme year and then the second year we look better and then he got injured again and then it was over it was a rat so i just i think the pr campaign of bnb eight does this entire process somewhat of a disservice because every move is just great every moves a can't miss well yeah because you're in bed with the agent and that's the one thing i i think when you reid nfl stuff now occasionally people have agenda but for the most part good good reporters in the nfl like usually side sometimes more with the team they do the player 'cause you know the team's gonna be there longer but you also take the player in the agent pretty seriously to it feels a more fair and balanced have they i guess they would say on fox news a that's a big part of the show is a fair and balanced even though he was where dnb eight they they love acting like you're just getting the whole story no i'm not i'm only getting the players side where everything pro player that's the great part about the nfl and someone that loves you know explosive stories like i i just don't think you're getting that aaron rodgers mike mccarthy story indian b h just not happening because it made aaron rodgers look really bad in in usually a made man in or he's like no one's right in that article about you know james harden or steph curry we held lebron james they're they're just not so much crap nfl picks and they take a lot just be glad that you they nfl news cycle you you get both sides of the equation okay before a before we get to the middlekauff mailbag where you guys have been my dm's answer your questions on the podcast i'm doing a be entirely we did the nfc east with the nfc east we did the amc south then were gonna do the nfc south today next podcast will probably do the nfc nfc north flip a coin to decide but they nfc south which you know probably i think most of us would agree has one of the better teams in the league any new orleans saints and then i think per second but it's kinda upper grabs well let's dive into the over unders it just kind of who i like to win the division will dive into each team will start with the saints clearly top the bottom their roster is really damn good i mean at one of the best coaches in the league they have an all time quarterback they have many blue chip players got a blue chip corner i got a blue chip wide receiver they got a blue chip running back they added added jared cook who's a really good pass catching tight end and when you look at their roster last year they really only had michael thomas a album are accountable to now you got michael thomas alvin kamara an jared cook it gives them a little more balance a they added latavius heaviest murray 'cause they lost marketing marketing is really good player but the problem for them and you can't really pay everyone seattle at mark ingram walk you work in a pan latavius is really good backup like obviously mark ingram is a better backup but would latavius this is rebecca three ingram is more probably have a fringe starter where latavius is you're backup running back you're in good shape to me the one thing for the saints to take a big step they need a huge year out of davenport they drafted the kid where's he from university texas el paso or san antonio really small uti essay really small school they traded up into the first round they gave up a first round pick for when you do that you gotta become i mean he's not gonna become cleo mac von miller but he's gotta become a french pro bowl guy so he could take a big step i think there's rosters excellent there over unders ten and a half that's a pretty high number like you could be a really good team and win ten games i would take over reluctantly you know i see they went eleven twelve maybe i mean they're obviously really good at home they're the heavy favorites to win the division at minus one eighty i think we all feel pretty good i mean they don't want it i mean there's one player they can't afford to lose that'd be drew brees maybe in major trouble after they got teddy bridgewater you could argue they they're in pretty good shape to be pretty deep i mean they got a good backup quarterback so i i i like the saints win eleven games i take you over an you know minus one eight hour wedding bet that the panthers they're all over under seven and a half a i'm on the fringe i think that's seven eight range right there you know maybe they get eight nate i think the big question is cams health you have surgery is not the same guy last year the big talking point in carolina has been like people reporters during oj's get video of camp throwing then the team kind of freaked out so they just put a camera on the team's website on camera like it's not that big a deal looks good throwing the ball and o t h for whatever that's worth but the thing with cam it's part of his game is in rightfully so he's one of the greatest he's definitely the most physical running quarterback we've ever had brought up the most graceful like abakar randall cunningham he's most unique running quarterback we've ever had six foot six he could fly why he could break tackles you also have the cannon bernard the problem is it a little inaccurate dj more is a good player i mean they they got a pretty good roster christian mccaffrey is an elite player i missed on i i if you listening last year when he was coming out i i just two years ago i got christian mccaffrey was like a fringe first rounder i thought what he becomes like a better julian edelman but the way the league change so fast his ability to catch the ball the backfield is basically all alvin tomorrow he's the only player as i went through along i don't think he's gonna be that good you know what i racial profiling a white running back maybe i dunno and i listen i live in the bay area river stanford guys he's even like last year wasn't credible he's a he's a star an he's a he's a big help for camping camping dump it off not always having a push the ball down the field you know kind of the stalwart of their franchise thomas davis is no longer there he's with the chargers you know and luke keithly stay healthy they drafted the kid brian burns in florida state in the first round adam bruce irvin who's average player talking myself into maybe i jodi over but i don't like a much at eight i probably just one bed at a i don't like the panthers that much the team i like in this division which i think is one of the sleepers in the nfl in their over under and even vegas is telling you know like they don't have a seven and a half over under its nine nfc atlanta falcons other plus three seventy five to win the division so almost four to one i i liked that i actually think the falcons are sleeper team to win this division they got rid of sleep starkey z and they brought back dirk cutter obviously they kept julio jones and you keep the body freeman healthy they got all those guys on defense coming back off injury i don't ever remember a team like through september that was afflicted with more injuries dan quinn's a really good coach matt ryan really solid quarterback there is a well run organization i think they're gonna get a i really do i think just based on the roster wise there are ten eleven win team an if things go ride them and the saints obviously have a big rivalry i think they could win this division they're one of the sleeper teams if you told me like the falcons were in the nfc championship game i i won't be shot a i really won't getting rid of shark was big getting dirt cutter back him and matt ryan have worked together before you know it's probably the next best thing you could do if you're gonna have cow shanahan so i i liked the falcons a lot i think they're gonna be really good a really good they were really good on office last year calvin ridley was a star obviously who dominated they need a little bit more of the running game and then there's again their defense just lost so many players they they're not gonna be that bad on defense again and the tampa bay buccaneers it's six and a half i think there's two ways to look at it one they do have a lot of young talent a now you could argue is like james young anymore he's going into his fifth year like james where you make some place where i guess he's going into his fourth year the game's gonna figure it out you're not gonna figure it out i mean last year he couldn't keep her hands yourself in newburgh like come on bro it's i i come on man but it's just that's embarrassing it really is can't keep her hands herself in a super but you've got some issues now if there's anyone on this planet they can kind of get him going in the right direction probably any coach when i when you bring up james winston you got one coach with james james winston it'd probably be bruce arians 'cause he's crazy enough they're all they're just a good fit an also what james wants to push the ball down the field you got mike evans you a you drafted oj howard last year they got rid of the sean jackson it is something that ronald jones they drafted from a firm uscc who just didn't do anything last year and i loved it i thought he was like a jamaal charles lights coming out of that see they need to get him going they drafted devon white five fifth overall like you got five overall middle linebacker he'd better become a star defensive coaching staff really good say what you want about todd bowles is good defensive coordinator they kind of have a mindset in a way they do things there they kicked ass in arizona they use speed to bandage they have a lot of they've always used a lot of defensive backs they like they like a fast team i think they're gonna be pretty a pretty good on defense or at least much improved on defense and i'd rather db's suck but that six and a half number i i just wanna wanna give areas the benefit of the doubt but i don't trust i don't trust jamus i just the culture i dunno but not the same thing about the cardinals in erin showed up and they won ten games first year when he had the play san francisco in seattle so you you know at the end of the day i probably take over i seventy nine i think seven and i won't be a pretty impressive year first year for for bruce arians now what you do with jamus from there i guess it depends on on how it looks but they're gonna have to figure something out you did drafted first overall his fourth year they've already picked up his fifth year option of arizona like and he'll be gone it's really that simple very like some keep a so i got i feel most confident saints over ten and a half panthers under seven and a half but i don't like their seventy nine falcons over nine bucks over seven guy feels like i'll go under i'll go under seven a obviously the saves the heavy favorite i like the falcons sleeper to win this division i think overall when you factor in arians is there now the falcons are gonna bounce back the panthers still have a lot of solid players in the same direction it's a pretty good division this is a this is a pretty deep division for sure what's up chris broussard hand hi i'm here my partner rob parker at the gather we are very odd couple that's right joined crucify me every day as we give you the hottest vice sports takes that you won't hear anywhere else for the director rob parker is be a i'm the more reasonable what's what socialism is a couple with chris broussard and rob parker on apple podcasts for forty i heart radio app or wherever you listen to podcasts okay let's dive into my my instagram at john middle cop is the handle middlekauff mailbag my instagram dm's dm's always wide open it's basically just full of boots full dude asking me questions about football about life about anything but mainly football questions and i answer i'm right here middlekauff mailbag at john middle cop instagram handle follow way slide up in those messages wide open if you had to create an all time coaching staff of a head coach offensive coordinator defensive coordinator in an assistant coach on both sides of the ball who would you pick wow that's pretty good one you could also throw in special teams coordinator if you like another question would be where the best place in north america put a new nfl franchises and why any good book street i would develop checkbooks really good this guy is a lot of question max okay let's do they all time coach i think the best coach in nfl history is pretty well stamps at this point bill bell check the thing is like personnels who's a top four five coach the problem is his best defense is were run by bella check so what i think i would do is i would go bella check head coach mit offensive coordinator with bill walsh as my offensive coordinator in my special teams coach is a great question i promise a belgian do that too so it'd be walston bella check you bring dante scar nekia i mean i could bring a bunch of people you know money kip in the coach the db's but bella checking wall should be the two guys on one best place in north america that doesn't have an nfl franchise it's a good question i i'd say portland but see i mean seattle's pretty big right there and they have an nfl franchise a i think about that for a while at vegas has won now i think were pretty well represented in the city's we need the being i i really think about that i don't think manifold expanding anymore i think they're kind of set who looks like the favorite to take the nfc east going into training camp i think i think dallas when i first did it dallas in philly to me it's a it's a two horse race also will lamar jackson be good no i think it'll be okay a what i'm nervous about lamar jackson there's been basically david senior high school where i tended pulling right guard we ran this thing many of you know called the wing tate i feel like that is what the be ravens often is gonna look like the wing t would just marquees brown be winding down the sideline occasionally get somebody bombs but basically just gonna be the wing tea and then the wing t i i mean obviously the nfl version you're cornerback is open to a lot of hits so how lamar jackson avoid not getting crunch i dunno i think it's i dunno if he makes it through the season healthy it'd be honest with you okay question for you in your opinion who are the most underrated players on both sides of the ball a most underrated quarterback ross offensive player i'd have to think about that will shoot sub question and what do you think trying to think of a defensive player i think most players in the nfl you just get a lot of pub when you're good like once you're good we know about you i would say underrated player again i'm kind of bias 'cause my backyard but deforest buckner who's really really good i don't know if this guy's really under the radar anymore but akeem hicks the bears i think sometimes like a defensive tackle could be a little under the radar i think it's hard to be under the radar is like a linebacker db just got a lot of pub army like under the radar wide receivers like is adam feeling under the radar i would most nfl fans would be like no hell no he's on my fantasy team what do you think derek carr will be like this year end do you think has a chance to be like two thousand sixteen car well they office of wines better a now they bring trent brown they're gonna have to coach a colt miller yet antonio brown you add tyrone williams you add a running back a you jared cook who was pretty important yeah i mean i think he could be a you know if they go seven eight wins and he throws thirty five touchdowns you could be he's a very talented the player maybe only question i have would there and sometimes it gets skittish in the pocket is mvp season is mvp level season before he broke his ankle he was so confident in the pocket pushing the ball every level short intermediate indeed an he's he's kinda got away from that the last couple of years even get that going again he's got antonio's the best receiver in the game tyrone williams a great deep threat but yet you know first round running back a lot of pressure on their kind of the honestly because next they could get rid of him for like three and a half million dollars so if he does not play well the season they will cut him you know i i know he loves this act like super low the raiders he's not even acting yes he loves the raiders but he has to realize they will get rid of him if he does not play well and if he plays well they'll win games so if they're gonna be good this year it's gonna come down and him why why don't can't nfl owners find other ways the compensate their players similar to the way the patriots tom brady supplements for the team i often think about arthur blank greatest stock tools and home depot for a company partially owned by matt ryan in theory ryan would be willing to sign for less the free cap space even though he did not he took every stinking penny i dunno i mean i i think the rules are pretty strict if you get caught you know eddie de got nailed back in the day and that was when the cat first started i i think if stuff will so agree gis they would take her a first round draft picks they they just can't the the one one thing the nfl hang his hat on right now i don't think dnb cares because there's not competitive balance and bnb in the nfl a big part of their business plan the reason they make the most money of all the leaks is parity is a big thing and when i say parity obviously there are many organizations like the patriots the steelers now the chiefs seattle teams and just kind of win every year in the browns but trainers teams lose a lot right but there is hope every season for like ninety percent of the league think about this right now named me a team right now the does not have hope going into the season the giants redskins but you you know haskins i'd say the redskins the bengals i mean just short list so the parody in the hope is a big reason people love the nfl so much 'cause they're teams at least as we sit here on july first and then august first the hell even september first you think he got a chance to win the super bowl but hey we could win eight nine games may make the playoffs that's fun second andy eight if you're sitting here right now and you're suns fan or you're a bulls fan or you're a knicks fan or you're a magic fan or you're gonna count the teams were not win the championship you were not gonna make the playoffs i heard you mentioned last year draft portland city on sunday and jordan at the top would you ever go over the draft boards you put together when you were in the nfl i love the here they actual scouting for it's actually looking at my garage raj yesterday maybe we could do that kind of forward a i and i had these two boxes i have one i think i have some here too yeah we could we could do that that's not a terrible idea let me write that down that'll probably help pass the time a reads scouting reports writing this down in my little to do list i know dj down some of this yeah we can do that for sure that's a good that's a good question not a bad idea at all see on nails i was on some a do you think frank rights will ever have the ability to be bella check it a chess match in a playoff game that's what it takes to get to the super bowl and they fc a yeah i mean i i think it's gonna come down to two things one they're gonna they're not gonna go to new england and beat tom brady so if the colts are going to beat the patriots which off top of my head it feels like they've done once when peyton manning overcame that big second half comeback at home so they have to find a way one thing we know about new england they didn't want her to see every year for eight tracy's so if you're gonna be new england you only chance you have a chance if the get a better season than i can see i mean think about kansas city last year the reason that game was so tight is because it wasn't home 'cause they started like crap they were terrible in the first half if they play like that in new england they would have been down twentyeight nothing instead of talking about having with only fourteen nothing then they came back and made it a game but they a big reason they were able did it's easier to play at home that you're momentum back as much or do that on the rope so i yeah i mean he's a good coach any coach that's a good coach and get in a rhythm in beat any coach even though check but a beat bella check you probably gotta beat him at home think about the last couple of times the patriots have not made the super bowl i mean the last time they haven't right was against denver in the the game they couldn't protect tom brady well who think about where the game was is that mile high so i i think actually the number one thing the give yourself a chance beside the little details not doing dumb stuff not committing penalties you know like having a good game all that bs you gotta be at home you're just when's the last time someone on the road and beat the patriots the jets you know not singing i found my head i mean was it the ravens i mean it it doesn't happen very often man so yeah was wondering what the expectations to be this year for the cowboys win the division i mean if you win the division the nfl you're a super bowl contender so by that to me when it comes the cowboys their division is pretty simple or i mean their goal is pretty simple whimsey nfc you win the nfc east you're a legit chance to win the super bowl obviously if you win the nfc east unlike last year you'd like to get a warrant to see to me that was a big difference two years ago when the eagles even though when once went out they were the one seat so they only had a win two games they got atlanta at home and then obviously they kick the crap out of minnesota last year the cowboys ten and six didn't get a by so you play the seattle which seattle wasn't great but it's still tough game and then you gotta go on the road of the ramps it's in dak was terrible in that game but when you get home playoff game in you gotta buy you're at a huge advantage obviously they have that a couple of years ago when aaron rodgers beat him but i'd rather take my chances at home and on the road to talk below is the best left handed quarterback prospect since michael vick and if you think about that michael vick came out in two thousand one so that's a long time and i'm not thinking about that what about a flacco from a not joe flacco flacco but flacco from the replacements kiana reeves he's been a western mexico movies john wick from scouting point do you look at left handed quarterback different you feel less than a quarterback a rare because they gravitate toward baseball and football football that's a good question i mean i i haven't had scouted that many in my life i mean he grew up i love steve young i don't think you necessarily scouting many different because i think a lot of teams now look at left and right tackle is kind of the same thing they put just as much value and the right tackle is they do the left tackle a i mean maybe receivers will tell you the ball comes out of their hand a little bit you know i don't know if that's necessarily the case i think with both to and michael vick they're just unique prospects i mean michael vick was six feet tall max a but he had a hose wasn't that accurate but he wasn't elite athlete to also little undersized doesn't have a great arm but he can he hit his head on being super accurate he's kind of like a left handed baker mayfield field you know there's there's some of that so yeah i mean i i don't necessarily i just looked like we were watching him like when i watch to a i just watch a good player you know i don't think like oh left right hand like in baseball matters because if i'm a left handed pitcher in certain divisions well if my division his right hand hitting dependent you know you'd rather have a right handed pitcher and vice versa right now if you're clayton kershaw doesn't matter but just for the most part like in football there are no right handed lefthanded splits for quarterback you know like a is there even a good left hander in the league right now it doesn't feel like you know maybe i'm blanking but yeah just if you're good good let's get a couple more questions i'm a students studying sports management is wondering if you had any tips on breaking into the industry also what results you need to see from preserved from matt patricia this year to see a good coach well on his way to being a good coach i would say eight nate if they went eight nate and had a good year i'd say you know a good year for patricia a which i'm out on right now so he'd at eight nate would be a massive win in my opinion for matt patricia i i just think here's the key i studied sports management to i didn't necessarily know what i wanna do an i wrote in my college paper and then i got involved with the football program and then it kind of lead the college football and the lead the nfl in out kind let the media i just knew that i liked the work in sports and i kind of found what i was good at i had a natural like i love football natural i kind of taught i mean you don't just you're not just born scout worn in college from pat hill a have a good personality of cell tells me on the podcast business lincoln ads in i could just talk till the cows come home so you know i'm just kind of mashed what i was good at but i understand when you're in college is hard i want to do this you know some people i think that's a smaller percentage you know exactly what they wanna do at twenty twenty one twenty two i think most of us and i'll throw myself included we have an idea and then through our experiences it kinda maps us to where i think ultimately supposed the end up and i think at the end of the day i will both the end up being a media personality a but you know i i wouldn't be here if it wasn't for my football experience so reach out to a lot of different elements in the business whether you wanna right whether you wanna be on camera whether you want a scout whether wanna be a gm and basketball and just see what sticks and you get an opportunity take it and just see where it goes you know i'm a big believer cal poly we hang their hat on learn by doing you know were not smart enough just a study and learn we actually have the do it i actually think are in that's an indictment cal poly were learn by doing because they would never say they're harvard they just be like we learn when we reid and we just remember at all like alcohol is like yeah we gotta actually do it so then we remember it's you know it's not the sharpest tools in the shed but we're not afraid of a little work a sub that would be my a my my life advice from middle class appreciate everyone a not sure if i'm gonna do another one this week will see where my fourth of july takes me on thursday but if some if some fun stuff some i dunno some stories break maybe we will but this might be it for this week a keep hitting me up with middlekauff mailbag at john middlekauff my instagram handle i'll get you guys questions appreciate everyone interacting and enjoy the greatest holiday on are happy fourth of july whose main everybody going yard here postal be ever growing bird vodka

Talking As and Giants at the All-Star break
"Hi i'm susan's lesser and i'd like to invite you to listen to my podcast ace plus it's safe fun look at the oakland a's you could hear the personal side of many of these players coaches and team officials plus analysis every week on a's plus hello and welcome to a joint edition of be eight plus giants slash podcast i'm henry showman the giants beat reporter for the san francisco chronicle and i'm chronicle endlessly thank you susan welcome well we've reached the all star break of the twenty nineteen season and we have two teams then find themselves in entirely different places now the listener seemed to enjoy the joint podcast we did the winter meetings back in december so we thought we would do another one and talk about the giants in asia at the midseason point in in this special episode we will get started right after this a henry showman back here with susan's lesser on me joy age plus hand giants slash podcast ensues and one thing i noticed that's funny were recording us a couple of days actually before the break 'em and i noticed it at this point aides are exactly nine games over five hundred the giants are exactly nine games over five hundred so we got some pretty good symmetry going here i mean under five hundred they're the giants what did i say that's not thinking i think i know the rents are nine nine games under five hundred eighty eight or nine games over and disrupt or roaring start a but deejays really that i wanna start off with deejays because he aged have been playing good ball i saw a couple of games when i filled in for you against the raise not too long ago in an i could see the da's made quite a push year in the last three weeks or so what what's going on there i know a lot of it is the starting pitching which we never would have guessed the beginning season you probably remember even as far back as the winter meetings when we were talking into really felt like they needed the starting pitching they'd really you know but block mike fires back after a non tendering him and they're bringing marco estrada who's been a non factor because of a back injury and that's pretty much it you know they they signed brett anderson he's been terrific 'em will fat okay edwin jackson they got back he's gonna be a factor there they let him go so it's really been kind of a piecemeal rotation a little bit like last year mike fires in a bunch of other guys come on really strong a specially you know in the wake of frankie montage who had been there lease suspended for eighty games that the rest of the rotation is just kerry right on as if you know nothing had happened in in there just fine the email ray for the rotation is right around three think three two three something like that are this giving up two runs or less seventeen times the last twenty three games they're they're really a really a strength of the team i never would have guessed that and of course the flip side if the bullpen has been a problem ending never would have guessed saturday even though of course i think everyone knows bullpens are very hard project from your teeth ears tier going information about recordsetting bullpen last year to really a tough one this year i don't think anyone saw that coming yeah you know i i was actually a there the day that montage scott suspended a covered that game for you will today hey i covered the game that he pitched and then i covered the day after an you know that's one of those things that you you think right you're you're first impression is that that is gonna be a killer and i made this point to some summation folks a back then that in twenty twelve well the giants lost milky cabrera to that suspension a to the drug suspension for the rest of the season a and it happened with six weeks left to go in the season in the giants were sort of middle of the pack right then and they held a meeting after that meeting they just sort of decided that we can win this thing without milky cabrera we're were good enough to win without him so were all just gonna come together you know the whole next man up thing i heard the term next man up a whole bunch of time with a times would be as a in it it really seems to have come together and it's just weird out at worst in baseball isn't it yeah really has had a similar situation in two thousand twelve with bartolo cologne and at the same time they also lost brandon mccarthy you know hit in the head by a line drive they had a couple other injuries in the rotation i brought up a bunch of kids dan straight alienated griffin same guys like that and they kind of sales right into the postseason even without the so it can be done and right now they have guys stepping up their that lucrative giants i promise giants listeners the one final had real donald trump who else was they were expecting to get hey seuss lazardo into the rotation who is gonna be in right after the all star break no doubt about that and now he's got elapsed rain starting to wonder we will see him this year but you know these were looking at like that's almost making a trade right you're bringing a a rice out lefty a top prospect in the game a right around mid season that could be a big lyford team in now i think there'll be get lucky if they get back in late august early september timber a and that that's a potentially changes the dynamics little bit but shannon i might be back sometime in a in about a month or so so that so that's good but yeah it's it's been a strange way so you just never know with pitchers there's injuries there's weird stuff suspensions you wanna see from you're ace you know montage was looked like he was gonna be deejays all star and now he's on but that is showing some fortitude here now do you have to tell me what's going on with the giants 'cause i have not had to fill in for you on the giants yet and all i no from across the day as they struggle the score the score runs a and they've got some interesting guys who might be available fia trade so i think that a you know in the next month or so we might be talking about maybe eight looking at some of those those guys over there interesting guys in trade i never really thought about that yeah well you know the giants we were really out of funny week here on just before the allstar break the giants just all of a sudden a went on a fourgame hitting rampage they they beat the diamondbacks at home in the last game of the last home stand then he went down to san diego where they've never really played well and they just they just want the pod raised they ended up scoring a i believe it was forty a ups right thirty runs in four games games in and now i've got people on my twitter timeline going hey you know what were only six and a half out now you think there may be a will will be buyers at the deadline instead of sellers at the deadline and a i i you know i i have to go they were all hold your horses there's a little bit 'em so i mean the giants definitely are hitting better the giants are definitely a becoming a more interesting team to watch alex dickerson who came over from the pod races has really been a shot me arm a bait pitched a lot better in june and they did in in may in april or may specifically they actually had a winning june crazily enough but you know the giants are still a you know the giants still struggling and they they came home from that a that great threegame sweep of the padres raise an a baby they got they got beat nine before yesterday by the cardinals in the in the first game of the homestand so yeah there you look at the numbers six games out six and a half of the wildcard but he looked like every team in the league is ahead of them in the standings except he a the marlins and believe it or not the match so that brings us you know we talk about a trade deadline just like you were looted to giants really have to be sellers i would think i mean unless unless they really think they can win next year and they wanna sign some of these guys do extensions extensions a they have a lefthander by the name of madison bumgarner a they have a left handed reliever by the name of will smith who has not blown save you twenty two twenty two as a as i say this they've got a couple of other pieces an man a you know we've been talking to you and i've actually talked about this at the winter meetings using the the prospect of the giants and aids could actually do a trade now that a you have a far hans heidi the former aides a front office it's executives running the giants she still very close with billion david and all those guys could you imagine the age actually making a run for madison bumgarner and what i man i think it's a little bit of a long shot as they he's has not made a major deal for a starting pitcher since two thousand fourteen kinda remember how that went to deal with great other john lester holt maybe a little less so a bunker teenager at least in tricked given their needs giving the montage suspension then shit a the fact that far han is over there a i i kinda like it a at the madison bumgarner cubs with that sort of ferocity on the map you know he's a leader he's done it he's been there he's a competitor i i think he could fit in very well i wouldn't even have to move threatened to nicer him but i think it would be tough i think yeah it's funny because a lot of the players actual all the giants players actually lives out in contra costa but i don't think he's one of them's got magin if they traded somebody who lives in contra costa could actually shorten his commute 'em you know i i think i think i know what you're saying i i i mean the ace modus operandi has really been a if you'll pardon my latin attempt of their ammo hey there you go the demo has really been the bolstered the bulk and we saw what they did last year with all these big all these big time arms they brought in from the bullpen a you think maybe will smith could actually be a more realistic a a target earlier age well i think warm hendrix emergence and now he's an american league all stars have yesterday a i think that probably loomis fat possibility i think things are committed now the hendrix's the closer and if it's not him it goes back to training who is as everyone knows has struggled this year but what he did last year i guess him certainly at least a little bit of a benefit of the doubt if deejays word i have a need there on an end i think hendrix becoming the closer in training trevino being sort of seventh eighth inning guys it goes back to being a little bit a you know sort of a a better situation laid out seventh eighth ninth they they know their roles a etc i still think dealers were left i don't think they need to spend big give up you know a major prospect for a bullpen arm i think i'll look for you know maybe i left hander that's probably the biggest need not a closer a but maybe a situational lefty and not have to spend the farm did you like yeah you know will smith i mean he he's a lefty you can get righties out as he's shown throughout his season here is the giants closer but i mean i think that far han views bumgarner an as smith as a couple of good ships tips a an you know they're both free agents at the end of the year so that always kind of raises eyebrows of any acquiring team a but you know there there's so many teams out there who are age situation and who knows by the time you're you're listening to this podcast is actually could be in the second or even i think even the first wildcard yeah right i know i go back in that first wildcard spot yeah so you know you you you never know i mean a and i and i see that you know you about i dunno six and a half something like that behind the astros in a you just wonder if they might be might feel that a i mean they could might wanna make a run at the division i mean think that's possible an end the reason i ask her where the giants perspective 'em is a i mean you know they look bb asia have had a couple of wild card games they haven't worked out well you need that one pitcher to go in there and pitch a pitch that wildcard game 'em and you just wonder if i mean you think they might wanna you have a shot at it going through the division i would love it at actress are so loaded i think realistically look at at the astros in their roster and a and think like that's gonna be tough but you know it's not comparable doctors are the best team on paper in the league really to my mind i mean there's obviously the yankees and the red sox have some very very good rosters also but the astros are are really set up for a nice run to the for the regular season in the end in the postseason but yeah sure everybody you know yes i've had terrible experiences and in the two wildcard safe in the so they would love to win the division it just would be a big call it you know this is why you know again in two thousand fourteen years made the move some arja in jason hammel in a obviously john lester for the postseason the specially lester and that didn't that didn't work out so a you know there's there's no guarantees that would allow it wind up winds up being a wildcard situation to and they even the guy on the mound they want in leicester and it doesn't work out there would have been really well set i think in a wildcard situation with frankie montage so yeah yeah garner is much more of that kind of guy in has the track record a tad mike fires has been pitching a couple of other guys that you know if i were available in pitching well sean mnaya maybe a i think they might feel okay yeah it's going down the cost that's what it's gonna be the cut his buddies a little bit of a break and then it doesn't a cost and say you know really topflight prospects are too i think he would consider it a and yeah wow well that's a good transition into you know far han an end bumgarner so i i don't know that he's gonna give bumgarner way even though he is a rental this is one of those situations where a the giants could hold onto bumgarner if they don't get at least if they don't get at least equivalent of a first round type prospect they could hold onto bumgarner a and a given the qualifying offer which will be about eighteen million dollars which i think he would be worth giving the way he's pitching lately 'em and then just take the drastic now you can't do that with will smith or a kevin pull are a you know anybody else like that that you might trade it's funny that you mentioned some arja a good a good transition is well into the giants rotation a in the giants rotation has just a you talk about the the giants at the first half that's been a story because they really haven't been as good as a one would have hoped i think going into the season the feeling was at the giants would struggle they hit a i think that's what the front office new but their struggle the pitch really has been a little bit surprising bumgarner 'em was not exactly bumgarner and if you look at as a you know old old school stats 'em you know they're they're not as good as you as you might as as the old days on some arja just has really never gotten it together although he's pitched better lately and i think one of the stories of be the giants firsthalf is that they really given to youngsters tyler beatty sean anderson a un opportunity in in as you know susan when you're when you're in a situation where you're not gonna win and you're you're going to start a rebuild 'em or you know even if it's a short term rebuild or a long term rebuild 'em progresses measured by how much you're young players could actually get into be the big league roster and actually contribute end up i think the giants have a keeper in sean anderson he was acquired in the two thousand seventeen deadline deal or noon as an immediate twentyfour twenty fourteen first round draft pick has finally started to show signs that you could be a contributor at the age of twenty six and a you know there there's a pitcher at the you know very well i think if he was mbh rotation drew pomeranz who is just not has just not cut it the giants a another guy you know well 'em is a pet venditti the switch pitcher 'em he's really been in the minor leagues for all but but you know almost all season and then derek holland a was reassigned per seven million dollars and now he's a long reliever and the reason i brought those three guys up derek holland drew pomeranz impassioned eddie worthy only three major league free agents are hans signed 'em in a they they've all underperformed and i think that's the story of the first half although he's brought in a bunch of other guys a in in maybe some subordinate rolls on that that have done really well 'em may i think you know far are haunting maybe a little bit better than i do what you know what do you what do you think personality wise says he's gone in come into this situation he's he's made a few signings that that having worked well and a you know now all all of a sudden a you know he he's had a scramble of at forty three players on the giants roster i believe a forty four players on the giants roster in the first act you know far on i know you don't know what's going through his head right now the personality wise what would you say well anyway he's gonna take the long be there but he likes to tinker you know his brain is really active a i don't wanna say he gets bored easily it's not like he's just you know it kind of make making booze for fun or anything like that i think everything's done a were sort of long term view but i think incremental moves are the way they ace tend to get better you know obviously they don't have the big payroll and just go out and buy pieces or a in the giants harm system might not allow that the giants to go out and make some big trades in you know in terms of getting better but i think you know she is going to look at this trade deadline i think very much as what is this gonna do down the line and i think this is where we were gonna see i think what he brings to the giants because i i think you're right i think i don't think he's just gonna go out and necessarily move madison bumgarner just to move them it's gotta make sense so that's that's gonna be really really fascinating you know we've talked about will smith i should just dismissed will smith out of hand because we have closure at remember last year they did bring into closures in your extra million in fernando rodney so it it's not out of the question i entirely a but i think those news when far han knows what that's where you're gonna see and in the meantime it's it's gonna be little incremental things and sometimes a little incremental things you know because they don't cost you a lot and unnecessarily do much in in or you know potentially or are you were what were talking about now it not not active is as had been hoped yeah i mean i i keep bringing up alex dickerson but here's a guy who's a two plus player an they got 'em for basically nothing in a if he stays on the field i mean this is a guy who's got some socks from the left side that 'em you know that a behind the giants really don't have i mean branded belt a really has not been the power force that that he has been in the past she's done a great job of getting on base but he's actually been there leadoff hitter against right handed pitching lately an i mean that that to me maybe the consummate far hans heidi move a looking for undervalued a players who can help you down the line to their their their moral lottery tickets and really that's what moneyball was all about right everybody talks about on base percentage in an analytical staff but really moneyball is just about finding undervalued assets in baseball the way you would find undervalued stock in by it in in hope it goes up right end yeah and if you do enough of those you know an they're not costing you much any sift through them a two thousand twelve days is the the perfect example i think everyone knows that far han was responsible from pretty adding brandon off a brand a mosque comes up in may wind up you know being one of these top home run hitter state you're in and really key piece in that drive to the post season in two thousand twelve but you know in in spring training he was just one of you know six or seven minor league free agent when they brought in a bunch the the metrics at these days they thought you know hey we might hit on one of these guys they hit on a couple of among one homeless lafayette a huge season i think he's a before last season made a very under the radar minor league move to get ramon laureano riano is now looking like you know one of the better young outfielders in baseball an that was exactly what we're talking about these looked at a system that had tons of outfielders and picked off one they thought had eight a big up potential upside but who had underperformed the previous year there's the sort of things you're gonna see far han doing and you make you make enough of those you tonight wind up with some very useful player she adds three four useful players that way you got yourself maybe a pretty decent roster in the draft as well i mean and i got i gotta say right off the bat that a you know bobby evans a last draft with the giants last couple of rats were much better after after he and john bar had some support graphs now you're looking at joey barton elliott ramos in the minors who are both could be coming fast a they have a pitcher named sean shelly six eleven i think you'll be tied for the biggest pitcher in the majors a when you get up here and you know the he signed some international crossings swimming deejays have done a lot better than the giants international prospects a they got marco lucy on a mark martin luciano from the dominican alex ferrario and some others in and i think that far han had a draft this past year which is interesting us a i don't know if this ever at if this was his modus operandi again mike were latin within days but 'em you know the the giants did drafter need what the very first pick a in a very hitting oriented draft they got power hitting lefthanded outfielder in honor bishop from arizona state but a lot of other picks the giants made were just basically trying to boost up the middle talent just get the best athletes you can catch her second base shortstop centerfield and then and then did it again during a hearing the international signing period 'em so i mean a hit i mean you recall i mean is that something is that like a billion day force thing to where you just you just see them 'em maybe not go after the best athlete available at particular positions but just trying you know is is that a big thing the whole up the middle i think that's one of the reasons he was drafted cuyler murray first last year a you know best they thought he was the best available athlete in the draft and as it turns out he definitely was destroyed and it'll be scoring touchdowns pretty pretty sure well so yeah i think that's very much deejays a with guys have been doing the last couple of years but you know they used to go out and get somebody say like a cliff pennington with a high draft pick you know a solid college a infielder but not necessarily the most first overall to be kinda guy now there that i think they are really emphasizing athleticism and they've been doing a lot with international drafty international draft they they a over spent a couple of years ago to get lazarie dormant tariffs is coming up through the system he's now at stockton a looks like he could potentially have a a decent features a big leaguer a end as they were then sort of under a limitation any limitations last year this year they were back to their full spending amount and they made one of the biggest splashes in international drought a signing period with a by getting robert costa who is i think people might remember a couple years ago the braves got a a reprimanded for some irregularities swiss international will prospects he was one of them he was fourteen at the time he is now six oh good lord a sixteen year old shortstop in any as a sign him to a a deal over five million so i think these days are very much focused now on international waters i have been scouting it very well and i think to in a really nice job there and they're not afraid to go to go big and make big splashes there and it's you're exactly right it is they athletes up the middle shortstop center fielders in particular the and focused on yeah you know this is interesting i mean this i mean i really have a preconceived notion of what we're gonna talk about but you know talking to you for the perspective of somebody who has known far han from a baseball since a lot longer than i have i mean i've known him personally for a long time a you know this this is this is quite interesting and i do think the giants 'em it's not gonna happen this year i i really think that the giants still don't have a these guys really at aaa 'em except for i mean they have some guys at aaa that i hope we will see by the end of the year and maybe a week and a wrap this up here by talking a little bit about what we expect a c m in the second half as we move forward a male sperm divided up into two you a section is i think trades an end otherwise and i think just retrace standpoint we've alluded to it the giants are i think are gonna try to get value for their two biggest pieces will smith in a madison bumgarner i think they're also so i'm gonna try and move some lesser pieces the get some organizational depth they have some guys who we talked about it you know in the giants context on on my podcast and in my stories and on social media you have guys like you have other two other relievers tony watson in sam dyson who i think are going to be a very much coveted 'em you have kevin lara who you've seen a lot of you know any american league and and he came here in i mean he's not a great hitter statistics wise but a he all of a sudden has become a one of the best a run producers the giants have you have joe panic who's not had a good year 'em you know all of a sudden you have stephen vote a guy you know extraordinarily well would be a great clubhouse guy on in a you know so i think you're gonna see a lot of activity a trade wise 'em i think that if they could actually swing a bigger deal fur pieces down the down the road involving some of their own controllable players i i think they do it but i don't think you're gonna see that kind of deal in july and then from the non trade perspective giants wise a i think that i think what i would hope to see you know what i think the fans would oversee is you have a lot of veteran players who were were under performing forming now and i and i talk about drew pomeranz a as an example mark melanson in the bullpen a joe panic in the infield who's the world series a twenty fourteen world series ring bearer i think what we'd like to see maybe is that some of the backups a in some of the guys who might be able to help the giants in the future are given more playing time maybe they call up a connor minister the rotation maybe they give donovan solano more starts at second base a maybe a even they break i mean they just brought up austin slater a one year stanford spoke 'em which he said with the rich in a one on one of those stanford focus who's come up in a you know a down a real good job in a short period of time and i think that you maybe maybe it could be a situation where we just see a little bit more of the future they give the fans a little bit more hope for twenty nineteen 'em even though the giants aren't gonna win they're still gonna have to sell tickets in the winter so 'em why don't we turn studios in let me just ask you first of all trade deadline what should we expect well i i do think that both ten is gonna be the distrust i i wouldn't rule out a starter they they really don't have any need for position players they're they're pretty well set there a catch catcher who is kind of the the weak spot or the season in a big question mark and right now they have for producing options there and when nick hundley comes off the rl they're gonna have to make a decision because three of them were out of options so bad that i think will probably likely see a left handed reliever added the guy i would really like to see you know hey will smith it'd be great if they could do it without giving up too much but the guy would really love to see a sean doolittle that might be it might be a little bit of personal bias there who who doesn't want the best packers and the game back back in the bullpen but yeah i think that's that's probably gonna do the extent of it and it worked to work very well for them last year so i i see maybe the same script this year yeah so that's interestingly the giants could actually be more active but that's really a a symbol of a of how how welby asia put together before i ask you about these other a part of the second half i did want to mention i kind of looked up just it'd be prepared to talk to you and i saw the the giants is a team are hitting to forty seven isn't that chris davis magic now but let's stay with us is magic number and you know what we should talk a little bit about chris davis a let's talk about he obviously has been extrordinary pretty i saw her you know one three years now at the hitting to forty seven four years in a row which is insane i he moves off there's no doubt about it you know since he ran into the wall making in a really really terrific catch in the end i wanna emphasize that 'cause he gets dangerous defense i think a little bit unnecessarily he's not about outfielder just cr a miss a great match goes into the crowd thanks aside he has not been the same since then i really don't spend you know stint tony i l a and i think he feels a little bit better but i don't know if he's pressing a or if he's just out of sorts or something maybe a still a un issue there with his you know bleak hit the side whatever that's it certainly is people know from a power hitter you were generating that power now tree work in when there's something going on there hip side oblique anywhere in there it's gonna make it a little more difficult a i suspect i am not a doctor that maybe there's something to do with that a or maybe it's just that he is trying so hard he has not homered a cincy eighteenth he's got he's just gotta hit a couple cincy injury and he looked out of sorts you know he's still contributing he's you know he drove winner run his first game in seattle he's he's especially when there's runners on base you know he's picking up hits here and there and he's so important to the tino you're still winning despite the fact that he is not showing a lot of power which i think is a you know very encouraging pretty but there are going to need him to be the guy they expect him to be in the second half and what is there is there another is there another option for dhs they want it to arrest him a little more i am not not really you know tickets they could work some of their other a a regular is in there on occasion but were special stephen piscotty out probably a good month a that is you know that's what they need me chris davis to be chris davis and he's just not right now and i couldn't tell you what's going on a he he's he's just out of sorts he's off i don't think he could tell you what's going on whether it's pressing or or maybe something physical or or mechanical so yeah that's that's i think becoming coming potential growing concern it's being you know a little bit in the background because there's been winning yeah well you know if the red sox fall out of it there's always jp more okay no i won't go yeah just conclude a what do you looking for in the second just in general generalities pretty age where we have a second half much like they had last year they need to keep winning series which they've been doing here for about a month and that's exactly a the world did things last year they need chris davis to be christova stick it out a little bit in the bullpen andrew rotation which has been i think maybe overperforming given expectations they're they're gonna have to keep keep keep doing that in hopes to get guys like maniacal and lizardo into its end you know when the bullpen at some point they might be adding aj pollock in drug cotton which will be interesting so they might even look at it as like we don't have to go out and do anything super splashy from a bullpen standpoint 'cause we could have a big lead dominating lefty aj pollock throwing dinner to here and there in the end a you know a right hander with a nasty little change up coming out of the bullpen okay well i think that i think it's fair to say that nine games over five hundred a it's good at this point they probably will need to be a little better than that to to make the playoffs i think the giants if they could somehow get the five hundred by the end of the season a after they potentially trade a madison bumgarner and will smith would be considered a great success 'em i think i believe i believe there are people who watch both teams and i heard from some of them so i think it'll be a fascinating second half both teams in susan i wanna thank you for joining me on this joint podcast ended up maybe we'll do it again after the trade deadline that's a great idea maybe i think we you and i might be talking centering the trade deadline i think i i thought yeah that's true that's true mobile app will keep the dialogue going out

Campaign: Warren rakes in $19 million after swearing off high-dollar fundraisers; Outpaces Sanders, Harris, Sources: Obama and Biden haven't talked directly since debate, Trump says he will no longer deal with U.K.'s ambassador to U.S.
"Wc thrill ride that will change forever some sundays nine pm on cnn tired of spending hundreds of dollars for prescription glasses visit xeni today at xeni dot com slash cnn out front next warren's rising elizabeth warren gaining a lot of money out raising two key rivals as another twenty twenty contender called it quits tonight plus president trump says he's done dealing with the uk ambassador basser to the uscca's criticizing the president's still talking to a dictator who has said things about him that are far far worse jeffrey epstein a politically connected multimillionaire charged with operating a sex trafficking ring with underage girls he's connected did do a lot of people including president trump and former president bill clinton what's next let's go up good evening i'm erin burnett out front tonight warren's windfalls senator elizabeth warren tonight turning momentum into cash raising a stunning nineteen eighteen million dollars for her presidential campaign in the second quarter according to her campaign now this is more than tripled in that warren raised in the first quarter at here's the thing this is despite holding no fundraisers not a single one her fundraising haul puts her by pete buddha judge and joe biden in a democratic field ahead of bernie sanders and senator comma harris and when you bring warns numbers down the nineteen million dollars this i said no fundraisers he's all small donors three hundred eighty four thousand people more individual donors then i wrote a judge or bite and warren knows it really can build a grassroots movement grassroots movement by people filled by new people eighty percent of orange donors are first time donors her campaign money impulse go hand in hand for warren right now according to our latest poll at cnn she is up eight percentage points a after last month's debate biden and sanders are both down and what's amazing altogether though if you just think about this for a moment is how americans are willing to put their own money into a presidential campaign and election give it to politicians trump's campaign said in his committee's he's say they've raised a more than a hundred million dollars all in fifty four million for him fifty one million for they are in see that's a lie and the top seven twenty twenty democratic candidates together phrase the same amount i mean there's jaw dropping numbers daily traveling with elizabeth warren she's out front live and peterborough the hamster mj how significant is this money in and the contacts year tripling in the second quarter from the first offer her campaign that's and this is significant fundraising haul for elizabeth warren you know in addition to the nineteen point one million dollars that you raised in the second quarter other number that they're going to be pretty happy about today is nineteen point seven million that is how much cash she has on hand heading into the third quarter and why this significant because first of all you might recall that at the end of the first quarter she actually just had eleven million dollars cash on hand a it just goes to show that she is continuing to grow her war chest and second i think it answers the question of can you continue to invest in a large organization the campaign tell cnn today that they're stopping is now up to around three hundred people and that around sixty percent of those folks are base and the for early shape you know at the end of the first quarter when she had just raised six million dollars a huge question that was moving over her campaign was whether she could continue to make those investments keep hiring people and it seems like at least for the time being fair answer is obviously yes for the warren campaign and as you noted aaron the thing that she is going to continue to hit on this team is going to be a this idea that she is running of the grassroots campaign when i asked her after the event in new hampshire tonight about what she makes with the fact that a billionaire tom steiner might be getting into the re she says she's certainly hope that everyone of the democratic candidates gets in the race will try to model on their campaigns after hers and that they run a grassroots campaign is well aaron all right thank you very much mj and tonight the democratic field field is narrowing congressman eric swallow well tonight leading the race he's the first candidates do so since the race really began and he's planning to run for reelection to congress instead congressman swallow joins me a out front now cox when i appreciate your time look i know that's what's really hard decision and you were on the debate stage stage just a couple of weeks ago you had some really big moments what made you choose to get out of the race now good evening aaron thanks for having me on you know i've said from the beginning i was running to women to make a difference and the issue that would have been my top priority is president was the end gun violence and i feel like we did advance that issue to eight top tier issue but i also promised my family and my constituents that i'd be honest about are chances and after the debates and is fundraising quarter closed at it just wasn't there and if we didn't see a path to winning there is no other reason at the stay in so i wanna know narrow this field and let others have their shot so we get a nominee who beat donald trump so you know i wanna go through as you age and talk about fundraising but also how many people are on the debate stage and i just went through some of those numbers right together democrats a race twice what trump individually raised in this quarter but he brought in a you know more than twice what any individual democrat has rights in other words it's it's it's broken up among a lot of different people do more democrats need to follow your league congressman and get out of the race get off that debate stage so you can get a nominee it's a really personal decision aaron and i would just say i support the democratic party process led by tom pres which is the narrow or or to narrow the field and raise the threshold say i do think it's time marches on as we go this july debate and then the september debate and the polling threshold and the donor threshold goes up that'll be good good and it's enough time for anyone who's on the stage right now to make their case and see their campaign grow but we do wanna really start to see the field shrink so that canada's compressed himself and i just found the hardest thing was the contrast myself what so many other candidates when you have a field no twenty plus individuals yeah i mean that was a hard thing right now but i mentioned at the debate and you're you attend people on the stage obviously both at your and i you still had some really memorable moments including this one i six years old when a presidential candidate came to the california democratic convention instead it's time to pass the torch to a new generation of american kennett with ben senator joe biden joe biden was right when he said it's time to pass the torch to a new generation of americans thirty two years ago today to make your appointment k off the george if i'm gonna solve the issue of student loan debt pass the torch gonna end gun violence for families who were fearful of sending their kids to school pass the torch vice president would you like to sing authorities are still on the george congressman would you support vice president biden if he's the nominee or does he really need to pass chores absolutely and what i would be looking to see if he is are nominees you know who he assembles as his team and i i had a very good conversation sation with the vice president's today he could not have been more gracious and thanked me for bringing up the issue of gun violence and said that he is looking they have a diverse team to help him in so i i'm excited for that the lesson for me there aaron i guess is you know when my two two year old son nelson now becomes old enough to run for president if i'm ever thinking about running for president again i better do it before he's old enough and could throw that a line in my face if he's also in this well i mean yes but you know but it was a point you raise a you know obviously asli it's something they came from your heart today there's been several other candidates and interesting you say you spoke to a to joe biden but also others have reached out to you be a twitter a senior fellow california comal harris wrote eric swallow well you're a great fighter for the people of california were stronger nation because of your work to protect our children are communities from gun violence at thinking of endorsing are you i'm i'm gonna take some time and i just is coming on air spoke with a senator warren in in senator booker so i'm gonna take some time i'm gonna be looking at who will elevate the issue of gun violence is their top issue into promise americans that we don't have to lift this way in that through policies we can put in place and as a majority of the support among americans weaken bannon buyback assault weapons background checks addressing a city violence as well you are obviously going to run for reelection to congress now and i wanna turn to a to that concert justin amash her colleague in washington who just left the republican party because he split with them right he supports sports impeachment proceedings they want no part of him anymore he said this yesterday about your speaker nancy pelosi's lack of support for the impeachment proceedings he a republican support serious when she says things like oh i think that we need to have the strongest case before we go forward which is telling the american people is she doesn't think there's a strong case if she doesn't think that she should open her mouth in the first place and say she thinks there's a bit of a condo i do believe there's a strong case i believe she believes there's a strong case and if so she should move forward and make sure that the american people understand what's going on you know also said behind the scenes at a lot of his fellow republicans are thanking him thanking him for what he did is he right about the speaker that she keeps saying there's impeachable contact but she doesn't support going habits impeachment proceedings ultimately what he's saying is you shouldn't have opened her mouth and why support impeachment inquiry is well but i think speaker pelosi plays a different roles then mr marsh and i do you know she's the conductor of the symphony and she has to make sure if we go toward impeachment that all instruments are tuned in every performer and the symphony is playing you know from the same a you know pages in in in you know in sync with each other and so it's a different responsibility for her and she hasn't taken it off the table and we have a big hearing coming up next week with bob muller coming in the testify and i think that'll be eliminated from the american people are congressman swallow i know this it was a a a a challenging day for you on some level but i thank you very much for coming on and talking with i thanks the workers on third year in an axe biden sticks by obama on the campaign trail brock obama rock and i walk and i rock and i brought a sock on brock isn't saying joe and i plus of leadership crisis in the trump administration nineteen senior pentagon conditions right now no permanent appointee former secretary of defense adam carter response anti pelosi calling out alexandro cossio cortez dismissing her allies on the hill tonight freshman congresswoman fighting back against please remember to create an ad like this one visit pure winning dot com slash cnn new tonight for president obama and joe biden have not talked directly last month's democratic debates now this is according to two people close to them until the storage facility but they say their advisers are in regular contact and that team obama was aware of biden's planter strongly embrace him as biden apologized a member for saying that he you know was was was proud but he had been able to work with segregationist senators to get things done i'll try now keith boykin the white house aides present clinton and former white house communications director under president obama jen psaki keith look we all know the obamas the clintons became very close okay so now you've got obama and biden i mean this isn't a thing where you need to go through advisors they have each other's cell phone they could talk great so to me it seems it seems not insignificant they have not done so directly since the debate two weeks ago when biden was widely perceived as having portly well i don't know what the president could save to to to vice president biden at this point other than i'm staying out of this so i think it's wise for a for a bob and not to involve himself in this i think michelle obama was right to make the comment that she did their their whole family were staying out of this anthem that twin former president's do they let the people decide not be party elders decide and then they minute indoors whoever the nominee is so i'm not concerned virgil bud norris for a for brock obama i think this is sort of standard operating procedure for both of them it it does jen though and i and i get the point but it seems weird as a person right the personal friends of personal advice i mean an end in case just mentioned michelle obama the former first lady a you know when asked about this and here's how she answered it just yesterday brock and i are gonna vote for whoever wins the primary primary so we're we're pins are primary focus is letting the primary process play out because it's very early it's like trying to figure out who's gonna win the world series on the first seven games 'em an end yet jen you know people wanna hear we love the guy he's great were not gonna endorse but of course we know but that's not what people are getting sure look i think first of all michelle obama is she's the first one to say she's not political full on she doesn't wanna be politically she's retired from politics and i think what you just saw her being really really careful she and former president obama no anything they say anything positive or negative they say but anybody will be a kind of judge didn't pick through a ticket to see kind of what they think and as he said and i couldn't agree more a you know they made a strategic decision to stay out of this 'em not maybe forever but for now a because they think that's the best way to get the party in the people who are supporting all twentyfour candidates are twentythree now a united behind donald trump and that's really where their focus is all right so but then keith this brings me to the issue that biden has okay which is a he's currently defining himself by brock obama who is not currently willing to define himself by joe biden okay so you have joe biden falling in the polls after the last debate a joe biden looking to find his footing as who am i an yet this is what we keep hearing from him this is just the past she's the rock obama rock rock and i rock and i and brock and i unrequited love i mean it's not gonna work well obviously prison obama still has a great deal of affection for his former vice president i'm sure they they like each other but that doesn't mean that he should be present in that biden should be president united states with joe biden's gotta do you gotta offer a message for why he shouldn't be the president for the future not present in the past we went through obama democrats are pleased with obama but we don't wanna have another obama we won't have a new president to move their gender ford and having somebody takes us backward is not helpful so if biden wants to to move his for his campaign for he's gotta come up with new ideas detectors rest on his laurels engine look we've seen ten point decline in in support for biden since the debate and since that happened since that decline you here by more and more going into the corner of brock and i rock and i brock and i yeah it's clearly become a safe place it's like a security blanket in some ways and they do have a close relationship i mean they're not daily text buddies or anything like that but they did build a closer relationship over many ups and downs for both of them in their life i do think if if it was possible to transfer support from an endorsement or a friendship hillary clinton would be president a you know brock obama campaign is hard out for her a it didn't mean that the same level of turnout was there or you know people's african americans were young people who had supported obama the same counties over a hundred counties that obama won that she didn't so it just doesn't work that way and i think that's a lesson from twenty sixteen that i hope that a joe biden is starts to digest case she has a point because somebody else tried this thing here is that person rather obama and i rather than obama president obama and i i worked with president obama that was not winning slogan no i mean in two thousand eight we had a candidate who ran for president and lost served in the obama administration and then ran for president later on and becomes became democratic nominee now were in twenty twenty cycle we have another kennedy who ran for president twenty two thousand they lost thirty about nutrition and now wants to run for president it didn't work the last time it's not going to work this time unless you have some other methods to offer democrats on even likely to support that message unless you have something offer and i know biden is leading in the polls right now but that is a very tenuous leader could fall apart the sooners novacaine is gaining traction all right at you know and i guess agenda i would say maybe the one thing i noticed just listening to those sound bites played side by side perhaps it's joe biden informality malady when referring to president obama as iraq which which might hurt him a little bit more someone you're that personally close wet a the lack of an endorsement almost seems testing worse in some when you would be formal f i know psychological analysis but it it maybe aaron and you know i think 'em rock obama wants to defeat donald trump and i think he loves joe biden but just like the rest of the american public he's looking at the race he's looking at all the candidates and then he knows that the process can also reveal the strongest opponent and i mean that was the case for him at this point in the race he was down by double digits and everybody at the kennedy amount so there's a lot of time left i don't think he's ruled out ever endorsing and you could certainly come in when there's a moment when the party needs to come together whenever that may be this is a strategic decision is made for now i know you're gonna wanna say one quick point i do think the joe biden should refer to former president obama as president obama not as brock i think it borders on being disrespectful despite their closer relationship and i think is appropriate from continue doing that all right thank you both very much next trump says he's done dealing with the british ambassador because he's criticized him so why is the president's still talking to a dictator what's called him far far worse plus he's rub shoulders with the who's who socialize with the

to again deal with the british ambassador to the united states the top diplomat of america's closest ally why well because embassador kim derek criticized the president's private messages that were leaked president trump tweeting quote i do not know the ambassador but he is not like a well thought out within the united states we will no longer deal with that well first of all trump of course does know embassador derek he's met in multiple times in fact dark with extras casual dinner scheduled have dinner with president trump tonight tonight until he was disinvited because now derek is that the trump and this was the nail in the often they're writing in one of the leaked documents quote we don't really believe this administration is going to become substantially more normal left dysfunctional less unpredictable less faction ribbon less diplomatically clumsy end inept adding that he doesn't think the white house will quote ever look competent that sort of stuff criticism right so president trump has a right to be upset to not want to deal with a specific embassador asks what that person be replaced but here's the problem he is holding the ambassador a of our closest ally to a much higher standard than anyone else in fact someone who really a choice words for the president to remember don't toured north korean leader kim jong on an official statement and official statement about president trump in two thousand seventeen not even a secret thing an official statement quote i will surely indefinitely teams mentally deranged u s do toured with fire oh and kim also called trump a frightening dog in the gangster trump's response to that no not getting bander canceling dinner with them love letters now is really being tough spencer wishing i we're going back and forth and then we fell in love this game now really he wrote me beautiful letters and their great letters we fell in love trump met kim three times after kim called him a mentally deranged don't turn gangster dog so let's get this straight if you're in american ally and you criticize the president any administration within clumsy is in after done but if you're literally murdering dictator you get love letters abby philip is out front live outside the white house and abby uk is sticking behind him baxter which is actually very significant tonight not not bending to this at this point how ars president trump willing to take this fight well at least for now the president is doing what he can to make a this situation as uncomfortable you came basser as possible this this invitation for dinner that is actually going on right now as we speak is the latest public a sign that the president's anger is really being materialized in concrete ways but at the same time this could be one of those decisions that is out of president trump's hands a the uk is in as you know apolitical a turnover period right now they are about to elect a new prime minister and in that process it may be possible that that the usa receives a new ambassador anyway so president trump has sent a message in this tweet by saying that he associates association sociation bath fitter dark with theresa may's administration which is on its way out he's sending a message to the canada's who are vying to become the new prime minister that whoever's in that position needs to be in favor with the white house but he's doing it by by also misrepresenting representing the relationship over the last several years despite what is being what was said in these cables uk at the united states have had a pretty good relationship up until this point a precedent trump clearly wants this embarrassment put behind him and i think at the moment it's gonna be up to the uk what they do about it wants their new administration comes into power all right abby thank you very much and i wanna go out front now the former secretary of defense under president obama ash and carter author of inside the five sided box lessons from a lifetime of leadership in the pentagon under many president's a secretary carter you have served so president trump won't work with the embassador derek because he insulted him a he says he didn't know and but of course he does and derek was even gonna go to dinner tonight but that obviously i think i cancelled so the president is willing to work very fondly with kim jong on what to make of trump's response to the british well a i mean in tables like this get league no good can of it but you know the relationships bigger than any particular individual and the british i've been a good friend of ours and we've been a good friend of theirs for a long time when i first walked in the pentagon in the reagan administration caspar weinberger as the secretary defense and we help the british and the falklands war they didn't forget that we worked together in the cold war we work together and afghanistan iraq terrorism a and you know it's a country that shares are politically values as well this whole thing is bigger than any one personality right whether it's i i suppose embassador or the president's united states i mean is implication obviously the uk prime minister theresa may hurt a spokesman says mess full face and kim their full face and that providing unvarnished assessment that's again of quote isn't ambassadors job so standing by their basser defiant as president trump says get rid of this guy a surprise uk is is is standing defiant on i i'm not surprised nobody's in a good position a here are president isn't because he's been insulted a their leader isn't biggest tables were to the leadership and supposedly in private have been a leak lord knows the embassador is not in a good position i would hope that we all recognize the this is a relationship that's bigger than this situation and we get we get through this and continue on with important business we have 'cause you know you gotta spin a globe a anybody listening seem to besser you erin or me and look where on earth you think there are people who kind of share what americans a cherishing stand for and stick up for in the british are one of those so you know obviously play as i point out the stark contrast and the way the president handled this as opposed to a kim jong on you a write in your book about u s policy and you say well let me let me just invest in in one minute on june twenty second with derek size and then i'm gonna compare pair to what you said you he wrote it's unlikely that you us policy on iran is going to become more coherent anytime soon this is a divided administration 'em that's what kim derek said in your new book a texture you right i couldn't accept an offer perform someone like president trump by no means do i disagree with all his policies but there would be major differences between us unimportant issues like russia the middle east and the importance of alliance is more important i couldn't support decisions about defense made on sudden impulse it sounds like you feel much the same way as the british ambassador well this is a passage in the book in which i'm at i'm answering the question at the president's calls you and this is completely hypothetical in my case a is should you automatically say yes and i say no you shouldn't automatically say yes you should say can i help the president to succeed because that's the principal reason why you take a job like that in my reservation about a present dropping his secretary of defense says that he doesn't seem listened to his secretary defense i was lucky the present i worked for what i was secretary defense listen to me but i mentioned weinberger and reagan long ago when i first started my career cap weinberger's listened to by ronald reagan and therefore weinberger could help the president get where he wanted to go 'em and a president trump doesn't seem to listen the leader of this defense department i would find that pretty frustrating i certainly jim us it in that context we're dealing with the esscalation with iran right they are now over the trump got out of the deal there now out of the deal essentially a three point six seven percent they have exceeded that limit offer for nuclear power now four and a half percent for uranium enrichment they say look you're up you got a couple of months and then we're going to twenty percent and once you get there obviously some experts say it could be weeks away from a nuclear bomb if you wanna add one how significant is this i think it's a toe in the water i think when they're not gonna be able to sprint real quickly to a bomb one of the nice things about the cpo whatever you thought of it that is the iran nuclear agreement was it required them to destroy a lot of stuff up front so there's some things they can't put together back together very quickly and that's a that's a good thing i mean if i were i'm i'm less concerned about that with iran at the moment than i am and i'm less concerned about deliberate brit or invert and war between the two sides because both government say they don't want war but i'm very aware and i was very aware of secretary defense how close up against we want another we are there in the gulf end so inadvertent war in a climate where everybody's trying to measure everyone else and not much is going on negotiating front that is my principal concern at the moment also at the pentagon you're dealing with that as nineteen of the most senior roles lack permanent appointees right there's no confirmed secretary of defense and we've gone to act after acting how big of an issue is this for this country will the place has a very deep keel and so it's not gonna flounder around it's got a very strong bencher professional military and civilian leaders so that's good what he can't do without a leader is move into the future only with the secretary defense can you do make the tough decisions and and drive the change that the defense department excellent as it is needs not because there's anything wrong with it but because the world in warfare changing so quickly and so were not moving forward without a leader were not gonna fall back were not gonna drifter out were not gonna leave leap forward so i think internally things will be okay but in terms of external strategic direction that's where the absence the circuitry defense for a long time really show up and that's unfortunate all right thank you very much carter i appreciate your time tonight good to be here with you always aaron annex multimillionaire jeffrey epstein charged with running a sex trafficking ring with underage girls just friends in high places including the white house plus alexandrio cossio cortez biting back and nancy pelosi or slamming far left

by a lotta people connected as it gets the ties not just a president trump but also the former president bill clinton they got marcus is out front horota's sexual allegations again against multimillionaire investment banker jeffrey epstein new york prosecutors looking for more to police who are victims as halfway at thing for me wants to see allegations over four years epstein lured

epsteins connections go be on a costa photographs here with donald trump in nineteen ninety seven in two thousand at the president's moral lago estate also in palm beach florida in february this year the president's had this to say about his labor secretary in the plea deal given to his longtime friends i really don't know too much about it i know he's done a great job is labor secretary as a that seems like a long time ago in two thousand two new york magazine epstein profile trump said i've known jeffer fifteen years terrific guy he's a lot of fun to be what it is even said that he likes the beautiful women as much as i do in many of them are on the younger side just yesterday the president had this to say about jeffrey epstein now in court today as these lawyer basically said this is a do over of that two thousand eight information basically there is no they're they're prosecutors say though they're already hearing from other victims employers about more possible cases out there aaron thank you very much an effort now harry sandik former assistant us attorney for the southern district of new york a you you have is this the president's ties to the labor secretary at you heard what he said a nearby is there more out there what what do you think i think there could be more out there i mean it's a little bit early to say but one of be a red flags here is that the case is being handled by prosecutors in the public corruption unit which is not normally the place you would expect to see a sex trafficking case many of us in the white collar community recall wendy eliot spitzer case first came life because public corruption prosecutors brought charges involving prostitution in that case and so one does wonder although we don't have any basis for at the uscca attorney was asked is this because of some public corruption angle and he declined comment but but one does wonder if there's a reason why it's in public corruption as opposed to just some random thing like a friendship between the case agents on a prosecutor i mean you know obviously i've seen sir fourteen months in prison while we saw sort of a registered sex offender but his he's a really connected guy among others president trump president bill clinton trump quote in new york magazine again i've known jeff for fifteen years terrific guy a lot of fun to be with us even said he likes beautiful women as much as i do and many of them are on the younger side a making the light of this a it seems obvious that quarters and today but in light of what we've known about a epstein bill clinton puts out a statement tonight acknowledging for flights on apps teens private jet but say he knew nothing about anything that i've seen is doing what let's let's hear it i guess what did it sort of says a lot about are society and that somebody who has this reputation as has been reported elsewhere a ken nonetheless ingratiate himself with the wealthy and powerful and it's disappointing to see and maybe one of those connections not trump or clinton necessarily but his why this unit this is being handled by the public corruption and we just don't know whether those those relationships are relevant to enter not at the point harry thank you very much out front next the feud escalating between nancy pelosi and alexandria ocasio cortez so how did this get there plus gene on president trump tweeting when he thought a glowing endorsement from a former president tonight house speaker nancy pelosi standing by comments she made downplaying the influence of congresswoman alexandria ocasio cortez and other freshman democrat philosophy telling the new york times folks all these people have their public whatever and the twitter world but they didn't have any following their for people and that's how many votes they got on the border bill ouch kazu cortez firing back using pelosi's own words against her tweeting a glass of water could beat a twenty year combine the green dream or whatever their public whatever she continues those are quotes from me there from the speaker having respect for ourselves doesn't mean we lack of respect for her it means we won't let everyday people be dismissed phil mattingly is out front fell sometimes they noticed sarcastic barbs the sharpest house plus responding speakers you noted certainly isn't backing down but she is expanding a little bit in there and i think the context here is important obviously this viscerally divisive to intraparty debate over that border funding bill and emergency border funding bill and the speaker referring to the house democratic version in which the for democrats led by alexandria cossio cortez voted against it here's how the speaker expanded on what she was trying to stay in the new york times are blue dog moderates and all the rest voted to protect the children they did not end they did not have further following so that was what i would say they have the following in the public i'm just talking that comes in here and i think what you're seeing here is kind of reflective of each individual's both who they represent and their respective our basis for the speaker in which he's trying to say right there action reflects a lot of what she said over the course of the last couple some of those issues but a cossio cortez points out in the tweet that she represents v entire democratic caucus in the house all two hundred thirty five members including those districts if they flipped in twenty eighteen the president trump had one in twenty sixteen and so she focuses on that internal dynamics are her power in her power base alexandria cossio cortez she was thrust into the national spotlight by running an insurgent campaign her power comes from the outside her power comes from the massive social media following she has her power comes from the fact that she was largely sent here by a progressive base that expects her in some of her like minded colleagues to essentially break things so what you have here and it's really kind of two very different mentalities two very different focus is and sometimes they clash i think the big question is coming up in the months ahead there's going to be more immigration related issues more spending issues salmon speaker in alexandria cossio cortez stay in line with one another on those big issues that will just have to wait and see are right around the schism is even bigger thank you very much bill next president trump tweets that reagan predicted his presidency but that is not with gene miller uncovered tonight in the words of reagan there he goes again here's joining us from three tweeted it with a four letter comment cute but a better word would be false what the president's linked to is a photo of president's reagan meeting donald trump back in nineteen teen eighty seven with this prophetic reagan quote superimposed credited reagan for the life of me and i'll never know how to explain it when i met that young man i felt like i was the one shaking hands with the president's critics shook their heads for someone who is constantly shouting fake news fake shore do like to re tweeted it political fact david up pants on fire quoting me administrative head of the reagan foundation is saying he he did not ever say that about donald trump the fake reagan quote critics on twitter respond to the president trump once again quote there you go again reagan's quip the carter during a debate trump and reagan did share the same slogan we are going to make america great again make america great but great what reagan daughter

"One more legend on the field but he is in Beijing and you want to say about football I think that's fair to say he walks away brock osweiler has retired he says he's quote extremely grateful time I did see playing in the NFL grateful checks stadium feels like even if the owner of the wizards Ted Leonsis is saying everything is different even if Tommy Sheppard the new GM of the team is saying we are contenders. It's Bob Low are you surprised WANNA stay in Washington he is not the first person to stay in a bad relationship because money is on the table and that's what this mostly feels like Bradley beal saying to himself I can make a lot of money now I could maybe get out of this deal I demanded trade worst case scenario and when time comes have now lost two straight so Mani would you risk having your meal ticket eaten by Von Miller tonight here probably I mean here's the thing if Denver shortly but it is worth wondering whether mahomes himself should the quarterbacks ankle was reactivated twice last week he's looking mortal for much of October and the chiefs now because of the ankle where does it end because I do feel like he needs rest and recovery but this division as you point out everyone is within two games of each other be eligible for the largest deal in NBA history some two hundred and sixty six million dollars which is a pretty good deal for him but I also wonder if he really thinks that he last two weeks for the chiefs offensively beyond Mahomes they run the ball less than anyone else in the league and so when you talk about time of possession it seems like if you want to get the ball in your possession mahomes off the field we know the recipe now it's just a matter of whether you think that this game is a luxury that you can afford and I don't think they will do it here's how this works if maybe less shady earned his money now the Bradley beal decided to your contract extension that takes him off the trademark in the short term with allow him to be a free agent after the look at the schedule to start and thought they would've off on three do you foresee andy re doing anything different offensively apart from the passing game because the number one thing that stuck out to me over composed okay so that's the answer to your question but I do find a logic about this kind of troubling unsustainable insofar as if you're going to rest Pat Mahoney at one hundred percent and I think if they could find a way to do that maybe if they had the bye week next week maybe they'd go ahead and do that in play it out in that way I don't even know off the top of my head who there on fourth down they will be going against a gentleman named Joe flacco this week which is much Sunnier situation that you would have gone against the child watching so maybe their defense has he does not play the loops they are four into going four and three in that division is a perilous place to be in now yes I understand completely the argument being is best to happen do this in the short run because what would Bradley Beal have fetched on the open market during this year with all of these contenders and even non-contenders wanting the guy who can being in the future seems pretty assured now with the wizards man the wizards could've done the thing where they recognize about themselves it's time to stop pretending like we can twenty twenty one twenty two season could yield an additional seventy two million dollars deal also you know maybe he still wants to play for the consistently media over so we kind of know what the broncos are GonNa do the Broncos by the way who have a top five defense the broncos were gonNA shove they're running backs down the throat of the chiefs Defense Patrick Mahomes he is is better than the next option then the hobble Patrick mahomes winds up playing I'll say this though I read something I think it was at the athletic that was interesting about the chiefs and I've been a person who has said about the defense can't get off the field because they can't stop the run and they struggle to do that but would really got him in his last game was struggling to stop the past like led the Andrei Hopkins Kissed Her Ball Wide Open it can be a guy that turns this thing around athletic made that point it says that you get out of there when you look at the situation and you say to yourself it's never going to get better it is possible I don't know why he would see it that way but hey maybe he's right I want to be clear I do think delusion is at play here on both sides because bill not content brad beal has a completely different system a man that he uses that tells him that what's going on there is something that can get better maybe he is wildly optimistic about what it'll be when John Wall eventually is hold onto with longer would be part of the part of it for me is that when I've seen the run the ball they look like they've done pretty well like it's not like it's been ineffective out there all won league ads who knows maybe Denver we'll be able to punish them in the ground game as they will but if they go to four and three that's not what any of us thought I thought the people gone too far thinking the cheese were a jug enough but no way we'll let us turn now to Roger Goodell the commissioner says that despite the tanking dolphins and despite five teams combining for only three wins he does not think an NBA style lottery makes sense for his NFL Goodell also added that he believes the League has never been more competitive than it is right now the arguments against changing for changing the rules because I believe obviously that tanking make sense given the rules stated but I'm not some originalist about it I'm not someone who thinks that it on any given team because he is spot up shooter old people's Dream Well I thought that they should've looked move him into a rebuild off that thing is his contract currently is very manageable is back from this Achilles tear because the reason we think this is a bad situation in Washington is most of us think the John Wall contract is an Albatross Bradley beal must not think that it is an albatross that would be interesting is say your team has the quarterback say you win the lottery now but you have already got this quarterback all we're really doing is setting up a whole lot more trading in the draft and maybe that's fun of quarterback is that means a bad dudes out there one ankle not one good ankle and a bad ankle I mean literally what ankle hopping around he's going to be quarterback Matt Bore Matt Moore so both does goodell desire to just keep giving the number one pick to the team with the worst record that add up to you I don't see any reason for them to change things right we have it was because people were clearly tanking yet fans into crowd basically channing like it was point shady I don't think that the NFL has that problem and I think something happen if you had a lottery seventeen right now that appears to be tanking and that is my in I think Cincinnati is being sorry all on their own I think Washington is being sorry all on their own rights when the NBA went to this what should be getting back is basically at the salary that Bradley Beal Mate and you're not getting a good anywhere near the value Bradley beal for like eighteen million dollars that he's making audit table and Americans with tune into watch it the NFL does not need to worry about the NFL draft whose ratings are excellent year over year over year so founders intended for this to be this way no if you don't believe it makes sense as an entertainment product go ahead and change it but the NFL man they'll have to do anything the NFL could put a here's the number that somewhere around there that is the only place I thought they would've pickle but otherwise this looks like it was over but I guess you can't just throw it in like that when you've already invested in John Wall the goal is the redistribution of talent they stick with it the way it is and if the goal is to preserve the integrity of the sport I do understand the arguments against tanking watch them and then you can make a television show around this lottery and then people will watch that right I just don't think it's going to achieve any goal that they're seeking but now that you put it that way thing we always talk about and get rid of the draft TV show around open agency that's that's a whole `nother level Pablo next cowboy sign Antonio Brown uh pay homage to their forebears does it look like it excites me it does not well actually Seattle could make some money off of this but if they're actually going to go and do that because it requires change requires a rejection of inertia and I don't think the NFL has that kind of ambition if we're going to do that do the explains a lot in terms of dictating who gets opportunities coaches have a big thing to say about who gets the opportunities that players may or may not deserve and get that but it's just this whole thing of let's make the media out to be the villain because it's really easy to do that that doesn't bother me at this point right easy man is that what he did report media to say how important they offer that said I appreciate Draymond Green Getting mad at the media for making us you know able to do some content the cowboys consider signing Antonio Brown adding I don't care what kind of media relations coming with it or a public relations nightmare come with it some wins can cure some of those in about empathetic to the player perspective but there is a risk of going too far because there is the general player perspective that I do appreciate in general which says politics off slow in what can happen very easily for us is that a guy does not get this thing started fast we throw them out and say that he's a bust and dismiss him and not considered the situation that he was in now I don't know criticize the teams that are terrible and by the way understandably so equality of opportunity is missing variable that I think draymond is hitting it yeah but where I am blaze situation though it's always the kid no one ever blames these franchises say Draymond Green Defensive Marquees Chris arguing the poorly run organizations laced were not really there for it I don't think there's a time and place right now for anybody to sign Antonio Brown and especially considering I don't think the big office wants Antonio Brown any defends the media as someone who was in the media but no we don't all think the same way there are certainly partisan hacks who carry water offices but there are also people who like to just about anybody if he can play Greg Hardy becomes an example but do not forget the Jerry Jones is also the dude who passed up on Randy Moss when the opportunity came because time playing the investigation the investigation which is a real thing I do believe but also the purgatory that Antonio brand will be until he gets to the next level of purgatory which would be with draymond on this is we're not saying that I don't think he's saying that no one ever criticized the organization for anything he's talking about criticizing the Organization for the role that they play in these young guys start goldfish memory like Antonio Brown's whole saga does feel like it took place as zoo years ago and now it's receding from view and maybe we're thinking to ourselves where near a team right now so he could call Antonio and be like hey you wanna come through here but he's probably gonNA need to make another call before he does that yeah the NFL is slow hello is so that we stopped talking about you if he comes back we start talking right back again I hope we do well when thanks Oh is this something that you could see Jerry Jones doing rob right and I think that most of us think Jerry Jones is being a guy that will take on else's why is this taking so long desparation makes you think about a lot of things said Michael Irvin in suggesting have guys all over the board who can score the basketball you don't need to do everything every possession Dave is after the staple center preseason debut and the latest blow out I would Roger Goodell be at risk seeking when he's just making counterpoint they'll because you say they can just put the football on the table and people to watch it then by the same argument you can make these changes in then people Ashley end up empowering Anthony Davis to actually get

assaulted girls and his mansion in manhattan more than a decade after a widely criticised clean deal shield him from similar charges in florida federal prosecutors unseal the new charges on monday

in cash according to the indictment you also have some of the girls kirkwood other underage girls in other words this guy is one of the worst pieces of crap in the modern history of the country he was engaged in sexual trafficking of minors which is about as bad as it gets everyone involved with him should go to jail for extraordinary periods of time because this is horrifying and everyone indictment says that's being created the vast network of underage victims were him to sexually exploiting locations including new york in palm beach epstein was arrested on saturday at peterborough airport in new jersey after arriving on a private flight from france to law enforcement officials said he's charged with sex trafficking and sex trafficking conspiracy he faces a combined maximum sentence of up to forty five years in prison if convicted prosecutors are also seeking the forfeiture of teens townhouse on east seventy first street new charges according to the times are viable the years long case against epstein who face similar accusations involving girls who told the police they were brought to his mansion in south florida and then assaulted decades unraveled in two thousand eight after epstein was offered a secret plea deal by federal prosecutors one of whom is now secretary of labor under president trump and this is where the case starts to become important for modern politics there two aspects of the case they're important for modern politics aspect number one is be involvement of the current secretary of labor who is the prosecutor in this case end who cut it

as i say there's two reasons why epstein scandal is important for today's politics reason number one has to do with the secretary of labor whose name is alexander acosta under president trump here's the prosecutor any epstein case the second reason is all of the rich and powerful people jeffrey epstein new and who are now being dragged into the conversation about who knew what when who might have been involved because apparently epstein used it traffic these girls do friends it's one of these allegations in the washington post reports today indictment on monday i'm jeffrey epstein on sex trafficking charges has reignited questions about the way alexander acosta and now president trump's labor secretary handled in earlier case against epstein that resulted in a minimal sons as you us attorney in florida in two thousand seven accosted negotiated a plea deal the lead to felony solicitation charges and thirteen months in county jail forever steam the billionaire financier is allowed to work from his office or six days a week i've seen him and facing the possibility of life in prison pretty rich deal right there his alleged victims were not even told about the deal on monday indians admonition in federal court in new york at thirteen face charges resulting from allegations like those in the florida case indictment says it new york and florida epstein perpetuated this abuse in similar ways accosted three spokesperson declined to comment labor department spokesperson robert judo referred questions about a costa's role in the plea deal to the justice department of justice department spokesperson then declined the comment this is very controversial because the miami herald and donate long running series about exactly what happened here and it appeared that this is a sweetheart deal for jeffrey epstein who called and favors from friends who've been called in prosecutors that at least whizzy allegation made by the newspapers papers in in florida officials at the white house are nervous the democrats will encourage women allegedly abused by epstein testify publicly before congress drawing attention to a costa's work on the plea deal president trump right now has no immediate plans force out or fire costa like others officials are speaking on condition of anonymity senior white house officials said the administration would like to learn the contents of the justice department inquiry into acosta before making any decisions and there is already a deal jay in corey on all of this house speaker nancy pelosi of course since at a cost should step down she's doing so precipitously because we still don't know all of the information but if it is true that things are as bad as they appear there's no question that acosta should step down mean if it turns out that he cut a sweetheart deal on the basis of something corrupt not only should you should be disbarred obviously maybe they're maybe prosecution in the works of corruption those involved acosta has not been cements testify before congress specifically on the matter the only person who asked him about all of this at his confirmation hearing in twenty seventeen when senator tim kaine of virginia accosted told cain the professionals within the prosecutor's office decided on the deal taking himself out of the negotiations in this wasn't my deal in the first place to house democrats in the party now has more leverage to demand that the cost of testified jamie raskin democrat of maryland he said in the wake of the new york charges there's resurgent interest in hearing from him about the dual system of justice in florida acosta has a major reckoning to do some republican members of congress and they supported costs or reserving judgment about the labor secretary pending the deal jay inquiry at this point senator roy blunt he said if there's more the comes out i'll be glad to look at it at this point i think it's been looked at repeatedly i think everybody has reached the same conclusion there's a justice department office of professional responsibility sponsor ability investigate misconduct of department employees open an ethics investigation in february is whether it's attorneys committed professional misconduct in pursuing the plea deal in the first place it is unclear at this point how this is going to result a costa's initial handling of the case was widely criticised she signed off on a deal in which in exchange for guilty pleas in state court the solicitation i've seen certainly thirteen months and registered as a sex offender and pay restitution of certain victims initially sealed keeping secret until it was released as part of a twenty fifteen lawsuit in addition while the florida investigation initially came to the attention of authorities because we fourteen year old alleged victim you only minor epstein was convicted of soliciting was sixteen years old according to the washington post that age difference is his obligations to register as a sex offender in two thousand eleven a cost and again the secretary of labor wrote a letter seeking to explain his reasoning saying he faced the year long assault on the prosecution of prosecutors by an army of legal superstars you also wrote the defense was investigated individual prosecutors in their families looking for personal peccadilloes that may provide a basis for disqualification again i think there's gonna be a lot more information that comes out right here and we'll find out as time goes on suffice it to say it with all of the swirling accomplished should certainly be thinking about whether it's good for the administration for him to remain in the trump administration should have to bear the burden of a case that seems pretty obviously wrongly negotiating the first place that angle number one in folks are jumping all over angle number two is that epstein had a lot of rich and powerful friends with whom he used the hobnob in two of those friends were bill clinton and donald trump and so there's all sorts of speculation today that i don't one of those men is involved in these sorts of sexual activities with women or girls who were under age minute speculation obviously is based also in the reputation of the human both of whom are famous womanizer according to the associated press jeffrey epstein is hobnob with some of the world's most powerful people during his jet setting like future president donald trump called him a terrific guy former president bill clinton praised his intellect and philanthropic apres frequent flyer aboard his private jet you rest of the billionaire financier on child sex trafficking charges is is raising questions about how much is high powered associates knew about the hedge fund managers interactions with underage girls and whether they turned a blind eye to potentially illegal conduct and of course it is putting additional scrutiny on alex acosta as you pointed out kellyanne conway told reporters at the white house that the president has not talked to epstein in ten or fifteen years she said like everyone else from the charges against epstein is completely unconscionable and obviously criminal disgusting conway also defended defendant acosta saying that he be actual perpetrator here is jeffrey epstein only major comment that than it's ever been given today but we know about from trump about epstein is comments in new york magazine in two thousand two in which he said that he had known epstein for fifteen years in praised him as a terrific guy saying quote in a lot of fun to be with his even said he likes beautiful women as much as i do and many of them are on the younger side which is not a great thing to say about a guy who's in a ledge pedophile no doubt about it jeffrey enjoys his social life trump organization addiction attorney alan gotten his insistence trump from epstein telling politico and twenty seventeen trump called had no relationship with mr evidence with mr epstein and had no knowledge whatsoever of his conduct and trump said he didn't know anything about all of this now that the trump and now we get to the clinton will get to that in just one second first they tell you

involved in any of these activities other than he knew epstein and so the question becomes did he know what epstein was doing should he had said something if he didn't know but again we have no evidence of any of that we just have some sort of mouthing off new york magazine in two thousand two which is yucky but not exactly indicative the trump knew that if she was trafficking in fourteen year old girls there's a difference between again gross resident trump is plenty of experience of again gross when it comes to his treatment of ladies there's a difference between that and knowing that somebody is an actual sex trafficker of underage women then there's bill clinton so epstein is also an associate of bill clinton's repeatedly lending the former president his jet travel overseas flight logs obtained by fox news showed the former president's look at least twenty six trips aboard epsteins boeing's seven twentyseven nicknamed the lolita express from two thousand one to two thousand three is never gonna ride around on a plane called lolita express guy he's kind of a bad move that included extending junkets around the world with epstein and fellow travelers fellow passengers identified on manifest by their initials or first names including including tatiana according to the outlet clinton told new york magazine through a spokesman for that same two thousand two historical jeffries highly successful finance here in a committed philanthropists with a keen sense of global markets an indepth knowledge of twenty first century science i specially appreciated his insights and generosity during the recent trip to africa to work on democratization empowering the for citizen service in combating hiv aids clinton spokesperson angel you raina says the former president knows nothing about the terrible crimes jeffrey epstein pleaded guilty to in florida some years ago or those with which he has been recently charged in new york he said in two thousand two and two thousand three clinton took four trips on epsteins playing with multiple stops and then snapping his secret service detail traveled on every lacks the claim is that discrepancy between between twenty six flights and for trips is that trip conclude multiple flights and so it was four trips in secret service was there in the us this is not clinton flying over to lolita island or sexually violent and then participating in these in the proceedings of evil said he has not spoken tap seen in well over a decade has never been a little saint james island epsteins wretched new mexico or his residence in florida all of this is extraordinarily ugly of course and it does raise questions about whether we have eight joel track of justice in the united states were folks were exorbitant lee wealthy answer of course is yes will get to that in just one second so they're they're also accusations that this story was well known by the the media and that a cover up basically took place including by major editors over at democracy now which is a far left website they didn't interview with vicky ward investigative journalist you profiled epstein for vanity fair in two thousand three if he's headlined the talented mr epstein magazines editor at the time according to democracy now that editor name grading carter cut out the testimony of two young women epstein allegedly molested which spoken to vicky ward on the regular one of them under age were wrote about what happened with epstein reporting for the daily beast in an article headlined tried to warning about sleazy billionaire jeffrey epstein in two thousand three and here's what she wrote about this this year the pieces of they originally published in two thousand fifteen updated as of yesterday vicky ward says get jeffrey wanted me to tell you that you looked so pretty the female voice settings and i just believing it was the fall two thousand two i was pregnant and comfortably chauffeur the first time in with twins do the following marshalls besieged by relentless morning sickness sick three gutters onto my desk at dinner with friends i suffered severe bloating water retention but here's this full complement coming bizarrely in a big grotesquely from a woman woman i hadn't met female assistant who worked for one jeffrey epstein and mysterious gadsby ask finance year my been assigned right about by my then boss grading cardi under a vanity fair upon hearing my assignment i've seen had invited me to in off the record's he had his upper east side house three which i distinctly remember avoiding these finger food and then had his assistant culture telling me he thought i was pretty at first it was early stages of reporting out his music having been to grassley underestimated furman clearly considered himself a sophisticated ladies man you only book he left out from the paperback by the marquee beside the home a tactic i thought his journalist reduction technique was a bit like his table manners honors in dire need of improvement if only it it ended their this is what it in it had been meant to be a gospel piece about a shadowy slightly sinister but essentially harmless men prefer track pantsuit but somehow the very large had wealthy important friend tonio models and shied away from the press but didn't have in everyone is go back and while in that dark time but then the way the steps in scandal broke his circa two thousand fifteen when prince andrew's accused in a florida court filing of having sex with a seventeen year old girl issues a sex slave epsteins in the last forty eight hours have had a journalist from uk so newspaper put herself inside my forte i've been inundated with requests for tv interviews epsteins or mentored the convicted fraudsters stephen hawking bird recently released from jail after twenty years since i've been pestering me and my agent write a movie separately hoffman birds daughter has gotten in touch and it got me thinking there's some injustices maybe only time can write perhaps now is the time and vicky ward goes on to talk about how all of this gossip were starting to emerge how she talked with at least a couple of underage girls who accused accused epstein of engaging in criminal activity and how all of this which basically silence migrating carter how great and carter had her cut all of this out of the story all of this does speak to something deeply ugly about these halls of power in american life about be reason there's so many people who are who are suspicious of exactly how our criminal justice system works epstein speaks to all all of those things i've seen speaks to do all of those things in it does go to our perception of how justice ought to be done in the united states it it does raise questions about how justice ought to be pursued do now that does not mean that people are being over prosecuted if they are pour it does mean the people are being under prosecuted if they are richard there's a difference between the two accusations it's more of that in just one second first let me talk to you about starting daily wire so when we start at daily wire we had to expend an enormous amount of energy enormous amounts of capital and one of the ways you end up spending a lot of capital is on you're legal costs but you don't have to one of the best resources to help you run your business legal

making more efficient check them out right now legal zoom dot dot com and use promo code ben at checkout legalzoom dot com okay so let's talk about this dual track of justice and there's an accusation that's been made by elisabeth ruining who is sort of interesting columnist for the washington post and she talks at length very often about her sort of perception of wealth and what she says about this case is it this is an obvious case of rich people solidarity basically rich people decided to overlook all of this because they are rich and that would be best way to rename this case is banality of banality of evil among rich people who see class solidarity as easy as the thing that really matters like she says she tweeted out this warning if you want to see class loyalty transcend partisan divide just look at who rich liberal politicians hang out with when they think they you are paying attention well yes and no yes and no the fact is it rich people do you tend the hang out with rich people just like people were boards and they have a ten day hang out with people who are poor institutions they used to bridge that gap basically been destroyed in american life one institutions that were cheating bridging that gap was the church where people don't really check each other's income i go to a synagogue every saturday i really don't know income of the people i go to synagogue west nor do i care because were there to participate in the same activity a lot of these sort of societal building institutions across class wines happen in religious context they don't tend to happen in social context they don't tend to happen in educational contact per say because if you go to jail chances are the everybody you're going to school with is going to be rich in ten years with all of that said v idea that rich people are backing each other up because they are rich is overrated the situation it does mean however there in contact with other people are rich and powerful on regular basis and epstein is giving lots of money various charities including cancer charities and harvard university and this put him in contact with a lot of very rich and powerful people so when he's in trouble he could pick up the phone and a lot of those people were on speed dial wealth does come with power there's no question that is true but this is why what happened with alex costa really matters because this is where the prosecutors are supposed to say no this is where the prosecutors are supposed to say say listen you can hire the best attorneys you can call all you're powerful friends but we stand for the people this is why prosecution is not the victim versus the perpetrator prosecution is instead the people vs every case in state prosecution court is the people vs you're supposed to be representing the people of a particular state and that means you're not supposed to be cutting sweetheart deals this is why i think what comes out from the g o j about a costa's involvement in a sweetheart deal is much more important than all of the people that humans have not and what if you can't prove in any of those people were actively engaged in sex trafficking then i think casting aspersions then that they were quote unquote probably engaged in sex trafficking is inappropriate i think that's true whether you're talking about donald trump or whether you're talking about bill clinton it gives a suspicious then all these guys were flying around with alex epstein or jeffrey epstein rather yeah of course that suspicious but does that mean that we can immediately say these guys were involved in the same sorts of activities no it doesn't mean that at all it turns out that when you're hanging out with rich people all the time some of those rich people are probably going to be criminals and that is true no matter which class you are in virtually everybody knows somebody who's committed a crime in when you're very wealthy than you are philanthropist and your trying you by access for your business which is basically why bill clinton's getting flowing around in two thousand to two thousand three well then presumably you're gonna come in contact with a lot of very powerful and corrupt people so i i i would put the clinton and trump stuff off to one side and i would put these these secretary of labor questions on another page entirely but suffice it to say it'll be it'll be fascinating to watch as all of this unfold fascinating horrifying and the real question is whether are state prosecutors are doing their job that is the only question in that really matters here if there's no evidence that any of these other rich and powerful people were involved in this sort of criminal activity meanwhile the media doing yeoman's work on behalf of stupid so if they own stock in stupid they're doing a wonderful job it's so obvious truly obvious what many members of the media do i haven't their agenda so let's take nbc news as an example nbc news yesterday launches the the most bizarre stupid story i may have seen in in modern american history in that thing a lot they launched the story yesterday from meet the press and be titled did this quote senate majority leader mitch mcconnell's great great grandfathers own fourteen slaves bringing reparations issue close to home and then there's a graphic mitch mcconnell looking somber next to a bunch of text from slave sales from eighteen fifty nine eighteen sixty with the signatures of his great great grandfathers so this is now news and we're going to go back a hundred and sixty years and dig up your great great grandfathers more and then use that to browbeat you and taking the position on slavery reparations you do not hold meet the press reports details that mcconnell's ancestors discovered by nbc news the research of ancestry in census records came in the wake of recent hearing on reparations before the house judiciary subcommittee on the constitution civil rights and civil liberties well it's not quite that that has happened you're calling me a little bit suspicious when it comes to nbc dropping this news because immediately after this news drops i mean immediately within within twenty four hours in twelve hours and that news dropping lesson that's not news by the way great great grandpa did something is not news in eighteen fifty five is not news in two thousand nineteen because mitch mcconnell it turns out he was not alive when his great great grandfathers were in fact he was not a glitch in their eyes as of yet but apparently he is guilty of all of their sins and this is really what's confusing his opposition to slavery reparations obviously is the fact that he carries that slave owner blood within him that is infusing is deep and abiding hatred for slavery reparations because she puts in his dna is buried slaveholding now what makes this kind of weird what makes that report kind of weird just in terms of timing is the fact that literally been twelve hours amy mcgrath who ran for congress in kentucky just last year in two thousand eighteen now is the jews running against mitch mcconnell so weird within twelve hours of this stupid bit of apple research which the terrible dumb bit of apple research dropping within twelve hours he has a challenger in the challenger who ran in an are plus nine district and lost by three she's gonna get crushed okay the state of kentucky went for donald trump by something like thirty points she has no shot at all in this race the media nonetheless are playing this up they're gonna give her the beta or rock treatment amy mcgrath she's retired and fighter pilot she also happens to be the person who's called herself most progressive legislative mind in the state of kentucky so good luck with that one the media are pumping her up and the way they're doing that is by dredging up information about mitch mcconnell's great great great grandfather he ended the piece of by corky some asko an here's what idiotic he says senate majority leader mitch mcconnell who said recently he opposes paint government reparations in the descendants of american slaves as a family history deeply intertwined indie issue two of his great great grandfathers were slave owners usa census records show to great great grandfathers james mcconnell and richard daily owned a total of at least fourteen slaves in line stone county alabama all but two of the female according to the county slaves schedules in eighteen fifty in eighteen sixty census is the details about mcconnell's ancestors discovered by nbc news the research of ancestry and census record's came in the wake of recent hearing on reparations mcconnell and he was opposed to be idea argument would be hard to figure out who the compensate battling reparations for something that happened the hunter fifty years ago when none of us currently living are responsible is a good idea he said on june fourteenth we've tried to deal with her original sin of slavery by finding a civil war by passing landmark civil rights legislation we elected and african american president's nbc news and several phone calls and emails mcconnell's office asked if the senator was aware his great great grandfathers were slave owners office did not respond to those requests nor should they because that's stupid crap you honestly this is what we're going we're gonna track down everybody's for generations removed ancestors and determined determine what crimes they committed this is how we decide all of this now there's some obvious problems with with this particular angle namely that a lot of people you wouldn't expect have slaveholders in the family tree take for example comal harris here's a piece from her father donald j harris who's a professor at stanford quote my roots go back within my lifetime my paternal grandmother miss cushy nick christina brown descendants of hamilton brown who's unrecognized plantation and slave owner in founder of brownstown into my maternal grandfather my maternal grandmother miss irish so it turns out that you know who else has slave holder blood running in her veins presumably if were using the same metrics as as mitch mcconnell is commonly harris but i guess commonly harris is off scot free because she has her eye politics that's how this works so eight thing for what you're not responsible we used to have this thing in america where you weren't supposed to judge somebody based on an immutable characteristic ristic like their race for example the level of melanin in their skin based on their ancestry you're not supposed to judge people based on that but apparently you can if they hold the wrong political positions so mitch mcconnell opposes slavery reparations has a great to great great grandfathers where slaveholders that's probably why he's doing this because he wants to avoid paying eighty thousand dollars you're something indexes that that's obviously why mitch mcconnell is doing all of this income harris gets off scot free because comal harris of course well she has slave holders in the family tree she's in favor of reparations that mean she's but this does raise some weird questions about brock obama who as it turns out used to opposed slavery reparations like in two thousand eight he came out and he said openly he was opposed to slavery reparations so what do we do with the fact that brock obama has you guessed it slaveholders in his family tree and listen how the baltimore so uncovered this twist on obama's family history at the time this is more appropriate coverage but here's how these covers who's done about brock obama versus nbc news doing it about mitch mcconnell quote many people know the democratic presidential candidate brock obama's father wasn't kenya and his mother was from kansas button intriguing sliver of his family history has received seems almost no attention until now it appears at forebears of his white mother owned slaves according to genial logical researching census records the record's which never been addressed publicly buddy illinois senator his relatives were first noted in ancestry report compiled by william adams right wiser worked at the library of congress reporter kerry disclaimer that in his first draft one likely to be examined more closely obama's nominated according to the research one of about us great great great great grandfathers george washington overall onto slaves were accorded in eighteen fifty cents is in nelson county kentucky oh so their next door neighbors of mitch mcconnell's ancestors the same records show the one of obama's great great great great great grandmother's married you've all also owns use late so it turns out that obama has basically the same family story as mitch mcconnell it also opposed slavery reparations but that wasn't why he opposed slavery reparations obviously at the time but mcconnell it the media are so corrupt and so stupid at least members of the media who covered this kind of stuff is news the washington post covered it to it it's all insipid and it is obviously a smear and obviously had job but this is what so many members are media are engaged in these days it truly is gross in stupid will get some more of that in just one second first you may know i'm on the internet it for about twenty four hours per day i'm concerned about

the way the he feels about it current political issue today i mean it it it it it's such an astonishingly stupid and perverse and corrupt in sick way of doing politics go back to something no one can control namely their ancestry and then declare that inevitably based on that ancestry that is probably why they hold the positions did they do today it's so divisive in so cruel and so terrible in so inconsistent is i say rock obama had slaveholders in the family tree two of them i'm lee harris apparently according to her dad had slaveholders in the family tree by the way i will note also that snoops right guinea fact check on the claim mcconnell harris had slaveholders in the family tree and they labeled it unknown into just the right wing purveyors of doubt were pointing out that information no donald harris kamala harris his father put out that information so are we take him at his word or now apparently not if it did not cutting calmly harris is favor notes dot com in their fact checking well done guys just really strong stuff when the media having a gender they're willing to push it however they can right now in the twenty twenty race their agenda is not joe biden out there a couple of new poll out today joe biden is still leading the field but those polls are obviously narrowing in that problem for joe biden latest poll is in emerson poll out today and it kind of shows what polls have been showing the last couple of days biden continues to have substantial leed he is at thirty percent according to emerson he's at thirty but there were three candidates who are tied at fifteen and that's a problem for him because if he's at thirty they all gonna be at fifteen by the time these primaries roll around pete buddha judge by the way if you wanna talk about somebody who's been inflated by the media buddha judge that we raised eight fortune fortune in he is good on the stage using good talker pete buddha judge i've talked about this before but he's averaging five point three percent in the polling in this is not somebody who is cracked double digits in one poll in the last month and a half as far as i'm aware in the last several policies at five six eight four four six four so people don't judge is is really not a top contender right now therefore top contenders in the democratic party those are biden harris sanders warren harris sanders and warner all splitting forty five percent of the vote as sanders continues receipt well you'll probably sees that support bleed over to elizabeth warren and you may start to see comma harris continue to rise if lacklustre start to bleed over the hair so i think that it's a three person race it maybe a two person race between biden harris if this continues to latest polls emerson has buying it thirty and then the other three candidates tied up fifteen politico has biden at thirty one bernie sanders at eight solid nineteen elizabeth warren at thirteen and humble harris at fourteen points there's a poll out today that showed actually that among two thousand sixteen bernie sanders voters elizabeth warren who is now the favored candidate which is sort of sort of fascinating in any case it is obvious that many members of the media wanna see joe biden go down they're not interested in joe biden being the candidate so here's a cnn panel thing the joe biden is out of touch he's obviously out of touch well he's certainly out of step with the far left of the party if there's no question about that and the challenge austin for democrats in these kind of elections is the primary base is further to the left than in the general election primary voter an independent so it's always a hard line to walk if you're really focused on the general election no different providing than anybody else okay so this is going to be repeated line in joe biden is feeling it so joe biden was on cnn last night andrews forces position of trying to defend her husband from charges of racism in this is going to be basically biden's job from here until the end of the primaries that is not in a position you wanna be in if you are joe biden defending deep plurality of the black vote in the democratic primary currently holds here's joe biden trying to explain that the joe biden is not racist and there's one glaring absence in this quote they they maybe it's all prepared i mean the one thing you cannot say about joe is that he's a racist i mean he he got into politics because of his commitment to civil rights and then to be elected with brock obama and then someone is saying you know you're racist as soon as i heard they were not a racist i buy that i heard those words i thought oh what's coming next and 'em i think the american people knew joe biden they know his values they know what stand for an guy they invite okay so joe says well he served with rockford eight years worse brock whereas he wears michelle she wouldn't comment on this joe biden has problems the same media that is attempting to take down mitch mcconnell many of them are very eager to watch joe biden burn as long as you're not the nominee is and if he becomes the nominee then of course things switch on him the rest of the democratic party continues to run dramatically and left elizabeth warren who is attempting to grab that bernie sanders base unsuccessfully fully rushing way at least double digit support elizabeth warren reiterated yesterday she wants to decriminalize bordercrossing which would effectively meaning that if you cross the border illegally in the united states you get to remain at forever because we now we now have no grounds for deportation apps and some other lawbreaking breaking i do yes or no repealing thirteen twentyfive of immigration in favor of that so i am a i think that town a the whole notion of criminalizing a new approach to to a a coming across the border without documentation is not making any by any safer aunt that we just need to be in a different position on this so elizabeth warren claim there that we need to be in a different position on illegal immigration is a very very radical plan and not particularly surprising not particularly surprising because elizabeth warren is indeed a radical she's outraged and bernie sanders by the way in the last quarter she outrace bernie sanders nineteen point one million dollars raised in three months that is not in a huge election home at this point but it does plays her firmly in the top echelon of the democratic money raised according to the new york times she raised six million in her campaigns first three months and it caused some people like meter writer off and she obviously fleet was not to be written off to candidates have reportedly top twenty million dollars in the second quarter pete buddha judge raise twenty five million dollars in the second quarter to be at five percent in the polling and joe biden collected twenty two million sanders broaden eighteen million dollars in the corner calmly harris really lagging behind a twelve million although that is going to uptick significantly next quarter it's not just elizabeth warren who is moving radically left build the blasio who has no shot in his presidential race at all he came out yesterday and he suggested that he basically wants wants to stop privatization of education like no more private schools if you can get away with it that if he can get away with it he would like to get rid of public funding for charter schools many of which have been the most successful schools in in his own area of new york build the blasios going full comair everyone i'm not even going well do i am angry about the state of public education america i'm angry about the fact that you are disrespected on a regular basis in this country despite doing such important work i'm angry about the private ties errors i am sick and tired of these ever privatized oppressor saying we need public education i know when i suppose me saying hey are teachers taught us not to i hate privatized as i walked off okay so that is a again where the democratic party is that's where the democratic party is and that's where the media are then joe biden has some serious trouble in advance the good news for joe biden is that now there's another candidate in the race who's gonna draw significant support i'm talking of course about tom steiner the billionaire now i know we've lost eric swallow yesterday and that's really sad because we're all eric swallow it swallow dropped out his out his campaign lasted a grand total of ninety one days but it felt like longer now frankly because every moment eric swallows onstage with any turney but now we have a new candidate jumping is just what we need it's tom steiner who's already spent hundreds of millions of dollars on quixotic campaigns to fight climate change while flying around in his private jet tom fire is now going to spend another hundred million dollars to simply running for president on the basis of he likes me environment and he launched a campaign ad in which he tried it out apparently he he rated bagel rocks wardrobe when he got a pair of fading jeans and a blue shirt and then he like renting a ranch that he looks like a man of the people he's out there ranch and with billions of dollars here here's here's tom stiers bizarre strange ad launching his presidential campaign which will garner presumably the support of his idiot family i think what people believe in the system has less than i think people believe it the corporations have bought the democracy the politicians don't care about or respect them don't put them first are not working for them they're actually working to the people who have rigged the system we've gotta take the corporate control out of our politics all these issues go away when you take away be paid opposition from corporations and who make millions of extra dollars by controlling are quarter quarter we care we care about losing the world and handing it onto the next generation you know what you said they couldn't be better lie is so inspiring and by inspiring i mean i'm almost falling asleep watching this i can't i can't wait i mean so glad that there is just like a random wind high five and people what's hilarious about that particular shot right there is that it is obvious it just wind is not there for him right it's obviously gay pride parade he just kinda shows up in his high five and it's like they're all here for me and they're all looking at each other direction and there is just high five and red nose know like we have no idea who you are or why you are here really really spectacular stuff good job there tom stiers so i'm glad we need more people in this particular democratic race it is very important that we have more candidates that more candid what exactly where we going to do so tom steyer godspeed juicer godspeed okay so meanwhile kirsten gillibrand is still hanging out over there and she she i think she elected the race pretty soon i don't think the kirsten gillibrand kim last very much longer despite the fact at the washington post is trying to pumper up with a piece called the why america is ignoring kirsten person jila brand it's very easy answer because she's the worst forward answer because she's the worst that's why according to the washington post ignoring of course in jila brand is happening because she is boring says in twenty nineteen is by an appeal in twenty nineteen is unforgivable for a presidential candidate to be boring maybe that's are lost the problem is not the trees during the primary she's held every position on every issue issues grading beyond all imagination and that she will not stop being carson jila brand and you can't watch a clip of her children without understanding why everybody's ignoring her here's kirsten gillibrand explaining that you'd be better then joe biden would be take on donald trump do you think that's a joe biden waited too long to apologize you know that's not for me to decide i just know why i'm running and i think i'm the better candidate to take on president trump because my history is i take on the five other people don't i've stood up to the pentagon twice a first over the repeal of don't ask don't tell and then over sexual violence in military except my party when they're wrong and you have to be able to stand up to fight for what's right either way it's hard especially when it's hard and that's one of the best candidate to take on president trump entering this country moving forward are people ignoring her because she's eminently abnormal i'm like elizabeth warren and kamala harris is eminently abnormal that is why she's being ignored okay time person things i like and then eight that'd be a cornucopia of things that i hate you come back from vacation there's a lack of hate and so we've got we gotta do some things that i hate so things that i like overly over vacation i was getting a very very early and making my kids breakfast because they decided it'd be fun to wake up at five forty five every single morning until i would wake up and they would sit there and they would reads books in i would watch tv frankly an end cook breakfast for them and one of the movies that i watch while i was doing this was a movie called the standoff at sterile creek got very little attention i don't think is in theaters i'm pretty sure is only available on demand the basic premise of the film is that there is eight militia group that receives they call it a militia member has shot up a bunch of police officers and then they gather together because they're afraid to police are gonna come after them even though they're not responsible and they realize that at least they think one of them committed this crime the movie is he really really early good tight kind of black box thriller one of the things that that i really enjoy are movies they can be done basically but no budget and this is a movie that was done with no budget and you could tell it was done with no budget i also tend to like claustrophobic movies movies that are written it you really have to write it great movie in order to make it work within the confines of a couple of shots so for example i ate cloverfield lane the first three quarters of that film is just phenomenal it's just phenomenal 'cause all taking place about three characters four characters in three characters in a very small space this is done with basically five character six characters in a very small space so it's about these guys trying to figure out which one of them ditch and they turn them over the police here's a little bit of a break in about three minutes ago a gunman opened fire on a crowd of people it was accomplished one common casting confidence in you got away shooter shooter got away they're saying the shooting some russian contacts let's just nearby don't we didn't do okay so now remaining cops in inevitable military reinforcements are searching for a skit rid of anything that could linkage to was miss who's got it isn't after showcase it really is quite good it got very mixed reviews i think mainly because it doesn't take the militia with with these sort of lightheartedness i think that the media which the treat militia groups with like treats the character seriously it does point out that many of them are what hillary clinton called deplorables not like donald trump voters but actually like one is eight former white supremacist and all of this but it's it's got some really interesting twist interns go check it out the standoff it's ferrall great okay time for some things that i hate okay so thing that i hate number one there's this new trend i don't know why young people are apparently incredibly stupid there's a new trend of people who are who are destroying products there on the shelves supermarkets simply out of pure nihilism it feels like soft core clockwork orange basically if people just running around and doing things to hurt other people for no discernible purpose one of these videos is making the rounds on twitter yesterday today young fella who is apparently opening up in arizona iced tea spinning in it is disgusting and then closing it back up and putting it back on the shelf and smiling about it what a what a delightful delightful human being i can only hope that person is captured and then goes to jail isn't article over at the new york times today by person embarrassed stockman says a man carton of ice cream for viral internet challenge now he's in jail starting with a video of a teenage girl licking the carton of blue bell ice cream in a store and then put it back on the shelf video which went under the hashtag ice cream challenge grossed out a nation instruct fear in the hearts of ice cream lovers everywhere in fact actually i saw a picture yesterday of eight of the freezer that had been locked up like you would lockup razors at a at a grocery store they've been locked up a design thank you needed help to open the fraser because of the idiocy now authorities in stores across the country are wrestling without a stop a series of copycat videos made by people committing the same crime investigators in east texas where the first video originated track down the girl but turn the case over to texas juvenile justice department because she's a minor then on saturday the police in louisiana arrested a man posted a video on facebook of himself looking carton of ice cream in a supermarket even though he produced a receipt showing you actually purchased the ice cream afterward when he's white martin the third at thirty six year old unemployment has been in jail ever since loni cab late a cavalier a spokesman for the sheriff's office in assumption perish said mr martin appeared surprised rearrested mr cavalier said he didn't feel like he had done anything wrong his explanation was all i wanted to do was be famous and i paid for the ice cream and martin lewis charged with criminal mischief per tampering with a product before he had purchased it with unlawful posting criminal activity for notoriety in publicity it is indeed criminal activity to make it appear as though you were stealing somebody is product and then by the product there is one thing like i'll be in the supermarket with my kids and my kids wanna open something i know better by it's just hand it's my kids need it i don't take it and put it back on the shelf put it on video and then go and buy it to create the perception and my kids have defaced product at a store which can help drive down business at the store martin will spend at least four nights in jail awaiting his bail hearing as he should in louisiana authorities have seventy two hours to bring suspects before a judge because of the july fourth holiday the clock and start taking until monday friends boycotted defense where cindy authorities appeared to be trying to make an example out of mr martin in an effort to put a stop the flurry of ice cream licking incidents is a highly aggressive the recipe some seldom used after that is constitutionally questionable said mr borchert he said the chargers were questionable because it was unclear whether martin had committed a crime he said it criminalizes speech is not speech wick ice cream and put it back on the shelf and tape it is not speech that is ninety four of protected speech under the first amendment to the constitution my god people but there is something deeper going on and it is in that quote it is in that quote that quote is that this person wanna be famous all i wanna do is be famous and i paid friday ice cream if all you wanna do in life is be famous you don't care whether it's for doing something stupid or doing something notorious and then you will earn fame and you should earn in committee but there is eight there's they saw listeners to people who are doing this kind of stuff now is this supremely prevalent no it's not it's not but the fact of this stuff is being imitated at all their copycat hers or out there doing this sort of stuff shouldn't be disturbing to anyone and it shouldn't be laughed off as well you know this is just something young people do it stupid first of all it's actually dangerous right i don't know what kind of diseases people have when they're putting their mouths and other people's food and then put it back on the shelf in a dangerous businesses because now you've created the perception that any package of ice cream it i open may in fact be the face of beyond that what is going on in the heads of people who are so concerned about famous they forget about the basic duty i'm working on a manuscript right now that is tentatively titled rights and duties all about the fact that we have spent so much time in america focusing on right and we spend very little time focusing on duties in the flip side of rights are duties you're your right to free speech is protected by my duty not to inhibit your free speech you're right the property is is protected by my duty not to you violate your property rights every right has in common in duty and we spent a lotta time in this country not focusing on the virtues they'd have to be instilled in the population in order to protect right if you want rights would be protected and crew writes the right to do what you want and we also have to have a population that is not going to let liberty descend into licensure says we have to have a population that is not going to allow a perception of you can do whatever you want to devolve into i can do whatever i won't even if it harms other people or even if it's bad for me or even if it's bad generally i'm in favor of the government stays out of everybody's business and i get swing my rent until i hit you in the nose but i don't wanna society of people swinging their fish around because there will means more bloody noses affected their more people who are doing bad things even if it's not hurting other people eventually argument is and i think it's correct that will need to more people doing bad things did you heard other people that doesn't mean the government should come in and regulate people waiting their fish surround without hurting anybody else it does mean we should be inculcating a culture where we just staying this sort of stuff and we should be inculcating a culture where we look at how people act and we do make judgments social judgments about how they act now we have created this these are air sets virtue it's weird air sets virtue where virtue lies in being your self and being yourself as a measure of all things being authentic is the measure of all things your duty lies to yourselves doesn't like others true judy lies in filling your own desires and longings doesn't lie in your duty society or the common good or others in this is led to an argument it's been made by a lot of conservatives including my friend sort of mario the new york post in his argument has been that liberalism itself the liberty and liberalism the idea of a small government liberalism that inevitably could lean to central snus that undermines liberal reality itself it undermines you'll rights because as people start you act worse and worse people want more and more government regulation i think there's something to that argument but i think the balance who struck by the founders he's had we have strong social institutions that inculcate virtue and morality indecency and people john adams is quote about this which i still think the best quote on this where he said that are constitution we've made only from moral and religious people that's correct that is in its heart correct if you wanna live in a society with others you have to have a common framework of responsibility that doesn't have to be crammed by government asking me voluntarily undertaken by people who care about each other enough that they don't go around looking ice cream and putting it back on the shelves so i understand there's a deep green on what is obviously a stupid juvenile prank but there is seizing on roiling feeling that you own nothing to anybody in your society unless the government orders you to do it and that's very dangerous because then the government becomes the be all end all number one and number two what makes you a worst person because the stuff that makes you a better person is exercising sizing or free well exercising your free choice to help others and leave in a society where you are doing good for somebody else as opposed to trying to get famous nb notorious for doing something anything as we again start to measure ourselves by by are beliefs about are sales now by beliefs of others we become worse you self esteem movement has been something terrible for the united states there's there's this this notion that was put out in the nineteen nineteen fifty nineteen sixties it self esteem is the reason the crime was a current the rising crime is tied to low self esteem oh we had the news booth self esteem in order to lower crime rates one in west bad behavior we needed boost self esteem it turns out that precisely the opposite is true sociopath have extraordinarily high self esteem self esteem is not in any market way tides whether your criminal or not in fact lower self esteem a feeling that you have not achieved enough is very often tied you achievement any true so called tiger mom professor of regaled she's talking about be idea that cultures that actually inculcate a feeling ashamed for lack of achievement tend to be more successful that self esteem is not part of the equation that earned self esteem is important on achievement is important and that you can earn that that helps him in a number of ways including helping out other people in your community but in a in a society that has disdain shame in a society that says the shame is no longer good or right that shame itself is part of the problem that true virtue lies in the standings shape that when people say new you're doing something wrong maybe should think about how you're acting you're first reaction should be screwing you i'm being made society the disdains that is building a society of people who who's only judge of morality is how many twitter followers they have or how many facebook followers they have or how many instagram views they have and that's going to leave the depression it is going to delete the feeling of worthlessness you know why because this is worthless it's worthless why does any of that matter why why would fame without any regard for the reason for your fame be something worth pursuing especially here it's not gonna get rich it's not like he's gonna get any ancillary benefits and being famous it's almost like people who are who are writing their names underneath it go feeding their names on a on a subway station in order to feel as though they have left their mark there a couple of ways we've you're mark and in in real ways in the world want us to be incredibly destructive and what a city incredibly creative to help other people to be part of that social fabric to rebuild communities individualistic adam ism that's been promoted by social liberalism in our culture is really dangerous stuff and we tend to think of it as as the filament in freedom but the idea of freedom which always tied to the notion and we're going to take care of each other and a volunteer ristic basis we're going to build together then we did need governments tell us what to do we took pride in the fact that we could get together and build things that doesn't mean we were perfect but it does mean the mentality mentality is now the mentality now is if the government doesn't prohibit then i'm allowed to do it now eight is promoted it then i do it the government is tasked with inculcating its own peculiar sense of what is right and what is wrong you are not only under no obligation to do that you're basically prohibited from even enacting your private morality in public with others on a voluntary basis then that leads to generation of people who really are kinda lost that that's that's what i'm seeing out there and i think that it's it's dangerous we need returns virtue virtue is not a word they get satellite anymore but when you talk about virtue and when he's talking about duty and i'm not talking about the government imposing it from above in fact the reason that i want virtue in june each returners but we don't have a government imposing all of this stuff from about liberty turns into like sensors in this section is licensure snus pretty clearly early and obviously turns into a tyranny already will be

"Hey what's up? Everybody who's Russell Brunson? Welcome Back Marketing Secrets Podcast. I am in the studio right now for day. Six of reading all the audio books so as my faithful podcast audio listeners. If you don't download an audio copy of all these books that all my work here for the last six days it's been in vain anyway. Welcome to podcast in here when we come back so the big question. Is this. How entrepreneurs like us he didn't cheat and take on venture capital spending money from our own pockets how we market in a way. The lets us get our products and our services things you believe in out to the world and yet still remain profitable. That is the question in this. Podcast give you the answer. My name is also Brunson and welcomed the marketing secrets. Everybody so Man I wish I could spend four hours telling you all the craziness has happened since we last hung out. But I can't because right now I have to get back down to finish recording. The book short break now just wanted to shoot a quick episode but basically the last episode she has got was from Arizona at Tony and dean the mastermind dot com launch. And I had my brother ripped the my presentation of the end. Everybody got a lot of good feedback me as about that hopefully enjoyed that. But what's crazy? Is that night after we got done with Tony and Dean in Jenin? We JUMP BACK IN. A plane flew home and just in time to pass out three hours a week and it was noah's birthday which was so awesome. Celebrate a birthday playthrough they got some work done and then the next day or that night sorry it was at night then. I jumped in another plane. Flew OUT TO LA FOR TONY. Robins birthday party which was cool. Who Says Sixtieth Birthday Party and it was? I think there was basically eight different concerts. Like with the Ethridge and the dude that one person talent and pit bull and Andy Grammer. Who has seriously like thinking me him? She became best friends. He seems like the kind of guy would hang out with a bunch of other. Anyway it was amazing and then they raise money for. Oh you are and raise over. Eighteen million dollars for operation underground railroad was crazy Perez Hilton said to us which was like come on now Pearson. That was amazing. So anyway it was. The whole event was was awesome but then we flew back the next day and now I'm back here in the studio. Yes she actually fun. Time to work on the traffic secrets book funnel which was a lot of fun but anyway we're why should the yesterday because so many of you guys go out there and you launch a final and it doesn't work it doesn't work the way you expect it and then you get angry upset or you give up your walk away or whatever and I tell you behind the scenes because a lot of people don't know this is happening But I have a. I'm privy to what's happening in everybody's funnel with all the time but Last last year when we did the mastermind dot com launch. It was the biggest launch in internet marketing history. Which is crazy this year. I think two hundred fifty thousand people registered for the for the Webinar last year. This year we had four hundred and sixty thousand people so obviously our hopes are high. It's like this is going to be amazing. But it's also the fear of like how do you? How do you get lightening strike twice at the same time? You know two years in a row after it works so good the year before and so there's a lot of fear anxiety and there are a lot of moving pieces that made this launch different and difficult but launch happened. And I'm not gonNA BOO HOO because like for less than we already over eight figure. So it's it's crazy still charlie. The second biggest launch of all time but sometimes launch happened and chance kind of watch as Dean and his team and working on things and again. We're mostly would go and say oh like he didn't get it. We're happy dean. There's been stressing out like like what was wrong. Why isn't messaging during the Hooks? Where the angles? What are the feedback in obsessing over everything? I could see him in the comment section of the customers reading every single. Calm the the the ones from the live webinars reading while trying to figure out and tweak the message and change the message and tonight he's actually on live again based on all this data feedback on his Intel and going back and doing a whole new presentation with the tweaks and changes and he adjusted his justin emails adjusting the most tweaking changing tweaking. Changing all enroll times says happening real really fast and I think a lot of times the outside we think oh. These people have been doing it for a long time. They know they're doing and they just put it out there and just works but I think we don't understand is that people have been doing this long time. They understand the funnel audibles understand. Like it's not gonNa work the first time it's it's a constant evolution and change and tweaking and changing tweaking and changing and tweaking getting it until it's until it's perfectly. That's what makes them great. It's not that they know how to do it perfectly. It's that they know how quickly and so for you guys you're listening to this I want you to start learning. That skill start becoming okay with stress. Alabama launches dunes goes. I want her driving. Facebook is not converting. Well or whatever. It's like that's the game like the people who are best. The Game Aren't better at it than you. They are better iterating quickly and changing and tweaking looking at feedback from customers and from comments and from things are saying forget. How do I tweak this message? How do I change? It goes rerecord new webinar drainage do emails ads in your change anymore unless ads. That's the difference between being good and being great and so anyway. I just want to share that behind the scenes with you because most has ever see behind the scenes and so this hopefully give you a glimpse of what it looks like. It's funny I was talking to Dean Bantu weeks ago we were flying out somewhere and we're talking about when he wrote the millionaire millionaire says habits book and it took him almost two years before the book started selling two years. Most people would have given up after like a week or two. It's an two years of trying and testing and trying testing and try and he's like literally two years into it he'd record some add ons phone. They had a different message and sue that one hit. They sold a thousand books. That day is like. Oh my gosh. That's the message. People needed like now make sense and then it was like can only donkey Kong and then over the next three years. They sold five hundred thousand copies of the book because because they knew the message. They figured it out by doing the process so anyway. That's how the that's how the masters do with how they experts do you guys. It's not by being better a front despite iterating quickly and becoming okay with that and enjoying the process so I appreciate you guys. You're back in the booth and record the rest of the expert secrets book. Make sure you get the audio books when they are done. Otherwise this work on vein. Thanks guys appreciate you.

address issues namely on the offensive line and now this is more seasons where you have not had a first round draft pick they will not have picked in the first the crab legs and its mouth whether or not they got I heart you know I hear you okay they also gave a big plays a Seattle the rams mindset is they felt as though Marcus Peters had time had run out in La he wasn't giving them exactly what they needed they gave up a to to get him that makes a whole lot of sense to us they've been working on this now for a couple of weeks quietly in the closet and then all of a sudden they opened up the door boom here comes Jalen Ramsey and give up the what to do for first round pick yeah okay that's this you then you look into twenty twenty one and you say okay who's out there in twenty twenty one is it really hard to find and like you said this guy with Hall of Fame Potential Hall of fame talent but there's nobody that says you have to take those first round picks and spending our cornerback the rams arta how `Bout Jaylen Johnson from Utah or how about Lamar Jackson from Nebraska some of these other guys Fulton from Lsu we could develop second half of the first round draft you're not gonNa Find Jalen Ramsey talent in the next two years at cornerback spot that's ready to go yeah you could say well how `Bout Henderson from but he's got hall of fame potential they get that in a cornerback spot they're gonNA have to pay him down the line if people say well why would you give up all this form will the rams goals and vision so gave up at times big plays Jimmy Garoppolo they also gave a plays the Cam Newton okay if if drew brees would have been in the house Michael Thomas would torture them as well I think when they get back a five they give back a player in linebacker young from from the Baltimore Ravens so that's spot became vacant at the corner spot so they said okay who's out on the market round since they took Jared Goff Twenty sixteen the second day Got Torch Jameis Winston Did you hear what I say we like Jamie Line has not passed so obviously the rams make a bunch of moves yesterday Bingo and they get Jalen Ramsey new jalen Ramsey didn't wanna stay in Jacksonville we knew the picks like you mentioned they get a a potential well put it this way hall of fame potential Type Puller okay you got a long ways to go first round pick a twenty twenty one first round pick and at twenty twenty one fourth round pick to get him that's a lot to get a guy is no question about it but if you looking at tomorrow he's going to join us tomorrow at nine o'clock to make sure that you here for that but the I hear what you're saying that you're there's not another corner out there that's going to be Jalen Ramsey and because they're there when you look at it they say okay we do have other issues to address they went out they also as you mentioned they traded for center from Cleveland and they went out and got Horvat they win he wanted out key you said once somebody says I don't WanNa be here anymore that means they're not going to be there anymore but now we know where he's going to be He's going to be here in la the rams give up a twenty twenty is there going to be in the playoffs they're gonNa be championship runs for a long time to Cup you're not gonna find once again much like cooks the rams picks should be in the corporate for Cleveland so they're they're trying to feel holes with their draft picks opposed to drafting guys because volunteers are purposes the rams are a you just need to watch the temperature that's where they're at and you don't want to turn it up too hi Bernie and you don't want to keep it on off cookie right it's right where it needs to be in of those as well we don't know exactly what's going to happen we'll see what you know with near just come in we'll let you know Alexander go resurface again later on down to lead the trading situation just in case as an emergency prospect maybe he's inactive sometimes maybe he's active sometimes there's all sorts of moves there's going to be made in the NFL swath they keep saying you know what we need to fix this one whole we need to fix this one and I wouldn't be surprised north sounds crazy but I wouldn't be surprised if there's to be an offensive line sort of situation it looks as if he is saying I can fix this by working and Koji but this I can't rob you you move the guy that you would move up and Kelly from practice squad to be that guy but you say you know what I'm GonNa leave him on the peace squad and now I'm just GonNa give me a backup types yeah Geel Ramsey when you want to have a twenty three twenty four year old guy who's been the provost who's been are pro who understands a professional game and knows skien it was about personnel that's the only thing I can think of as to why you'll be so aggressive in going after the corner and not doing some of the things that from the outside the command you can you continues when you continue to have issues which are star guide she paid a lot of money to at some point maybe there's an injury to that now over the next couple of weeks I'm really curious as to and looking forward to talking to less about this conversation had was with Sean McVeigh clearly the coach feels as if different Arale AB for running back or for running back I wouldn't be surprised they just sniffing around even though the district Gerald Henderson in the draft who looked good against the forty nine the problems that they've had on offense are schematic fees that he can figure out but the problems they had on defense they weren't about weight look at music man we gotta shut him down when he depth and I'm not talking about and I'm not talking about a high draft pick type running back but just a guy who could be that third guy because you they're ready made right they're not they're not take him out of the packages sticking oven ready may they're already kind of in the oven happen here I think those guys is somebody's going to emerge whether it's Cooper Cup whether it's robber woods is getting ready to be kind of like a one dimensional the receivers are intact tied attack a quarterback is going nowhere sean has to get into lab and figure out how to put people what's going you know okay well who's the twenty one draft pick well you know you can look at this guy from this school and that guy in in our Jalen Ramsey in two thousand twenty one take this pick these are questions that we can ask listening trek wise so would you rather spend you know eighteen million dollars a year or Marcus Peters or eighteen million dollars year on Jalen Ramsey I dunno rain exact waist the satisfying everybody is going to be over with here this is where coaches tend to do when things don't look right they start to look heavy on who's the best guy now trying to satisfy everybody in terms of Peter's why would you get a guy and put him on Easter team is because you get five back you get a linebacker I don't know what cricket yeah but you gotta you gotTa in terms of Sean McVeigh and fixing the offense really nothing other than him getting into in a situation where the two and four that division hasn't run away from him yet and you've now got to once and you've burs but I'm just saying big numbers what would you rather spend the money on clearly a Jalen Ramsey or Costa del Rio who's joining us at seven o'clock was forty or cooks is the guy or they may just say you know what girl is the guy this is what we're going to do he's healthy period that's what because right now they got so many pieces and toys that so it's a it's a significant amount marcus peters is also now on his third team since he's come into the League he's Dude Erica's thirty but he's cherry I mean maybe because it clay matthews jaws broken need to feel like they could get some they need depth there so you do that move but you also gotta remember markets feeders up at the end of the year I was saying you that I I agree with what you're saying about there is not a corner out there in the next couple of seasons that is going to be as good as Jalen Ramsey so what as far as the Franki yeah you got the pigs but pigs doesn't mean anything if you don't get that type of talent worth the talent doesn't pan out though it does mean something to Jacksonville Jacksonville is first rounders that they're giving up to acquire Ramsey you're getting the best cornerback but there's nothing that says you have to spend your first rounders on cornerbacks you can spend them wherever you want they get get Austin Court yesterday but you look at that offensive line you look at where they're going to need to go and draft some guys where do you do it if you don't have any first rounders you we all go into a championship run and we wind up going into the playoffs eventually going to championship so those two first round picks paid off and that's what the rams looking at so there's gieco fix Marcus Peters and his tendencies and integrate easy thing about Peter's to says more interceptions than anyone else in the league since he's come into a by up I want to say by five the fifteenth season in the League he's probably going to be done that he came back for sissies aren't was a little bit of a surprise so he joe nope womb is your left tackle in waiting lab in figuring it out the often align again they went out they grab the center He may move the Senator Garden 'cause they're gonNA shuffle some things around to sure that part of it up listen to me what everyone's described as a hall for Jacksonville feels like a steal us if that comes to fruition if these at that caliber of talent to your Mr saying that Jalen Ramsey has potential to be Champ Bailey those hall of fame remember Champ Bailey you look yes on a few highlights way the Lakers gave up everything for a d. right because the Lakers don't plan on being at the bottom on draft right so I mean you know that's the thing all right there he is GonNa join us at seven o'clock so about forty four minutes from right now we will ask him some of these same questions as well but but he just brought up an interesting point key that the same thing and the rams it seems because thing about what's going on right now they're offensive line does not look good I just across the board at his not look good Andrew Whitworth is on the last year he's in his Dr spots in the centers and when you less need in Utah Ramsey unit in your in Scotland Department you know this you you you know this you know we're at one in the second or third where he was great at when he came from the University of Nevada for us so I'm not worried about giving a future assets for players now especially if they're it hit you gotta hit and that's the same thing when when we gave up the two ones for me Tampa Bay Gable two months of me he's on the rack because he just torture ligaments in his Brian Allen is your center and then on the right side you've got Rob Haven Stein at tackle who has not played particularly well then you got the right guard for the Guy Cleveland corporate like you just see it so that's one whole that's field then you look up and you go well okay we wasted that draft pick on this guy because young and you can continue to develop them give me your wheelhouse I have a question in terms of where we're getting some of our offensive Lineman 'cause I'm looking at the roster right now and I wonder if maybe trying to find some guys who are from schools that are facing QB's and fate more importantly facing defensive Lineman who were Ville there's a guy at Appalachian state there's another guy and North Carolina I mean they're so many offerings in line that you could look up and you can say okay they trade see an uncomfortably high number of big ten representation and when I think about how the big ten alley state haven tin and I'm taking guys from the SEC because because one factor that is huge for me is whether they play all sorts of climate okay to four or five five you gotta five to one zero five four four four so think about it now all of a sudden they're gonNA lean heavy who could go get fifteen targets or coop come gets less it just depends on what they see on the field and all of a sudden robber woods is the guy to do it in the first round and here's why why I say that Roger is going to pull some stuff for me here in a minute the off line in College football right now is pretty deep at the tackle spots dominic collegiate conferences the big ten is not very high much but you're not and so if I'm looking at the offensive linemen that are coming from that conference going okay what kind of competition are you facing the big ten and I'm from Michigan so I'm GonNa ask you say this in all honesty they all were when I think about Wisconsin Wisconsin that's what I think about the offenses that have run though in the big ten of how the big ten looks and how to big tank competes against other conferences I would say that have their way you want to make you fall what you've got so many tackles initiate draft is crazy you could go to the Guy at Georgia guy at Tennessee there's a Guy Louis Michigan Ohio state those dues or just they grinders you know who used to do this other take the weather component of it everything you just described. USC is not a guy that we look at it and we have evaluated so far that we feel we would draft at spot here's a guy who has fourteen games on his bill in the National Football League he got all that okay man they're molars there guys at pounds you going forward they beat you up Wisconsin Michigan state right after this but the basic fundamental issues that that this team has right now on the offensive side of the ball or offensive line and the inability print very dynamic quarterback's probably not so they're all refrigerators right and not used to give them the kind of pressure and then go into the NFL and there's a whole different scenario and kit wanted a second or third but we can get back into the I if we choose to do so because we got our three we got our tulips package it up and get to twenty eight okay if if you WANNA drive right they got ten games left their schedules actually pretty favorable and you look at what they have coming up they just got through the toughest part of their schedule these first six games were the part where you're going to get at this point it doesn't look like he's going to be in the starting lineup so he's depth for a for a unit that already isn't performing a high level the issues that we have on off let's go back to what Doria said though the idea of that look they're gonNa have to figure some of these off this offensive stuff out in the draft but for this particular season to protect jared Goff and create holes for whoever you're turning around and handing the ball to that really didn't change much yesterday because Corbett guy from Cleveland he's a deaf guy there he at least fence or still the issues that you would expect them to have on offense I wonder again if this for McVeigh feels like a schematic thing and not necessarily a personnel thing we're not going to be facing that you're going to be facing that postseason assuming you get you get there that is absolutely correct but I'm just going to assume because up until this point estimate you have road games against teams you got Seattle on the road so obviously San Francisco was a much tougher game than maybe we thought at the beginning so you've got an opportunity to get I mean just everything that you just described about these offensive lineman all those guys that you played with the guys that went to the league the guys that for years and years schools were they sending guys to the League as opposed to what we have in the big ten well if you would ask me that question you say keyshawn take they're not there I mean all those guys they the weather changes in those particular areas in the SEC as well as in the big ten you got co whether you got second-guessing Sean McVeigh has been futile so I'm going to assume that he's looking at what they have and you're going you know what I'm GonNa Start doing this and this I'm GonNa move him here and or maybe to your point travis that they feel as one of the reasons why offensive line looked poorest was because those first six games against really aggressive defenses and going forward as the facilities the Muna's Khalil's all of these guys were exactly what you were getting a little off topic here but this is my point I'm GonNa do this and the play calling that a half jared goff is going to be such that he is able to get rid of the ball quicker so he won't feel he will have to Michigan what's the Shahnkeri Shine Jerry first round pick Bush first round pick I could just go I don't have all my college they were looking to make some trades this morning but we decided to pull out of the IRA Jeff Katz didn't pass his physical no I I was on the block I was Steve. SC those days though we're also going up made into big bowl games and facing on town but you look at big the author of the top of my head those dudes are in the big teen I mean those are the big ten competition those guys from I will or Legit I just looking at you say keyshawn what would you like to draft you're live from and the first thing I told you I'm taking a lot of guys Hannah's going no no no no no no it's not true Bosa comes from the big ten is different what's what's wait until played down the field develops do you think that they pull the trigger because it wasn't just that they did one thing they they did a bunch yesterday right they make the deal for Marcus Peters he's on you bring in Jalen Ramsey you make a deal on the offensive line is all of this because of Toledo going out clay matthews have busted jaw Joe nope womb having a knee injury had gone winless win-loss win loss or a lot you know what I mean it's supposed to three now and you're like okay cool here we go again and then wait how did we get to three and three or you win one you lose to dose of medicine the Atlanta Falcons Atlanta Falcons are sitting right now in a position where they're looking at themselves possibly going one in six one in five one they need to figure out the running back position they need to figure out what they're gonNA do with the linebackers in particularly the offense align needs to get jailed and get together so it was a lot of different things but this is certainly the right come out and all of a sudden look like what we've seen them look like for the last two years because we really haven't seen it so far he's a great player we would expect him to play right but does it does it fix asa when you look at that the rams have a chance to to put the Atlanta Falcons out they misery if they go in there and they do what they're capable of doing if jared goff gets I think when you when you start to look at the situation number one you ready to go to Atlanta you getting ready to see that dum okay in that do go eat soup off David Ramsey against Julio Jones that sounds good for this game we also need to shore up some other stuff for the future we got him in the fold it's a make or break situation so the panic it they make the big move yesterday you pull in Jalen Ramsey who's one of the best in the business does it fix everything do we see the rams go out on Sunday morning rams they lost three straight games in a row okay they lost him in a row to get they got clipped by Tampa Bay team that's not very good we feel differently about it if because it still feels like you've got some real issues that need to be addressed and Jalen Ramsey is going to help shore up the secretary no question about it but they have a lot of different holes that they need to figure it Kinda SORTA sits in but that trading block was already there this didn't happen in twenty four hours this is something that the moment jalen Ramsey I want out the rams clock starts ticking wheels started turning in wanted to see how far they can get into the season before becomes somewhat of a loss because of the rams are sitting at four in two five and one this Jalen Ramsey trade doesn't happen all right so let's cut right to key but football out of his hands in Sean mcvay starts to call plays like he did a year two years ago then the rams start to cook and they start to look like a team the problem that we see losses and win it so when you look at losing to Seattle they win that game if they kick the field goal instead of Michigan field they make it they win that game but then they go out there and they lead loans hit if you put him out there I mean literally stopping in zone hot soon indoors in off his ailment Cram Charles like the broth kind put up like what seven points that's the part that's scary to me they'd say look Sunday afternoon comes around the game is over and even win or lose okay passes which win can you point to go they was clicking funny though the one now I know the still have fundamental issues up front I don't know if what happened yesterday fixes the how is very important because city showers a little heavy for him light probably go light broth veggie tooth and I would probably say when they say okay Jalen obviously a win you feel a certain way about a loss forget about what we're talking about on Monday morning but if it the offense still is sputtering if let's say they win the game twenty two it's time for you know thirty one yards or whatever it is and it just doesn't look right we're still seeing yeah okay great they won a game but they beat a one six football team reason why things are changing I can't think of maybe you guys can help me I can't think of a continual champion or contender that relies solely fourteen or some and it just it doesn't look right the defense looks a lot better the output jalen Ramsey out there and that looks right but if the offense is still sputtering if todd gurley carries the ball the the the early game by the way pre-game show starts at seven o'clock with me Kirk Morrison Pre half and post game hurt We will do little ass kirk there for sure but does it fit through the I like Garoppolo Beatles defense you didn't defense you didn't expose what is high octane overpaid high expensive office that you have after football today but they were clicking they're drives for three minutes and that's the reason why away and that's the explosive offense that relied on the big play that finished a damn thing you told me he was this an offense that was big plays or was this an offense that was on big plays to get these done offensively you can I mean the causes I can think of that was big play driven was that fifteen in one Minnesota squad blow out the Falcons but they bought the falcons because of four big plays That's not good that to me is not good you those four big plays where Gov Hidden Cooper Cup for forty five fifty six minutes now I don't like that what I wanna see is sustained chain moving with the occasional b. went to more than you lose one is it the way that it happens the way this is happening in in style points there's no style points they haven't gotten any style points in any of the winds or any other just explosive in the sense that they're six there's eleven there six there's fourteen there's two there's twenty one it wasn't there undefeated there's no question about their five in Lieu Jimmy Garoppolo right that's fine but you'd still an ego will his just not right now it happens to be fleas birthday favorite basis when a inspired me to play BESA I play Bass travesties I've heard yeah you got fleas no oh ripping off forty right I'm okay with that much down it's a bunch of things in the teens I'm okay with that what I don't want is you look and you go and defend yeah scratching for L. D. Base this is a combo here I was expecting something six gets you fired one in five usually get you fired don't WanNa five you could survive that because you can run off you can get the eight and eight and be okay but at one in sixty U hauls are starting to get authors Alan who's running away here very soon to Cam Newton he's GonNa be handing the keys back to the car in the next couple of weeks to campaign a lot more pop oriented whether or not a pop Bam for one and two it's also request Wednesday in our friend out the from the INSTAGRAM's wanted this all around the world and five six played boom games over but then they run up against a defense that didn't allow those big plays to happen and you actually had to have an offensive sustain I I can't think of because they they're merging in air only one game out of first place take a guess Seattle no that would be the airline then I feel like I have some peace but blowing piece for blown them out with big plays only that does not make me happy I and we just own the football because we're able to run effectively with the occasional deacon dunks and just control the tempo of the game to the point at which you'd never feel as if you're not in control anymore that means the raiders are now sole possession of number nine which you know they look they they they certainly gave us something to kind of take a look at the gym I L Z and I were putting out there the you know what can

the militant you know gay and lesbian community but the gay and lesbian community they got shoved to the side by the Trans Women that are out there but the point is there's a Tampon company that wants always the pitcher pitcher our full military so the the what's best for their children when it comes to this whole transition anything and I gotta be honest this has got out of control and then we'll

what's what's what's happened in Britain and really what's happened over there as the exact same thing and now it's just coming here you're talking about and let's be honest here we're talking about up into more social divisions so you know this woman basically grabbed she walks up this other woman who's respectfully asking a question she goes not interrupted you saw that Trans Woman at Black Trans Woman that took over the town hall we talked about that we're now within the the gay lesbian community there slicing even that what I've read this woman seems like she's mentally drained you know what I wanted at seven standard it's sad I know a gold card yeah my parents said you're not old enough for go kart right but clearly you know what I'll I'll tell you what though I'll aside there's now this old women can place you know football okay guess what you can't play football but guess what the majority of the folks that are playing football a little bit lower that's you're probably a male go into that bathroom well all these simple alright places though I don't care what you're right I mean you know where whatever but just don't walk in repetition I I mean I just as a as a father of two daughters and you the same I just you know my kids are my kids WanNa music and production and things like that acting done of these folks have any sort of idea how to pay for this right so Warren's going I'm getting close was closed for Medicare for all or that size that put address on file themselves a woman and then go into the woman's leading up against our crushing against somebody who doesn't want that yeah exactly did the swab go but the same thing is true with the bathroom I mean I don't want a person with mel body parts in a bathroom with my daughter I just don't now you want to be a young girl or girl at five foot seven that wants to go out there and play but that's not the problem the problem is the men that are playing football the bathroom with my daughter know exactly but most of these places now have a family restaurant they could easily use but does not about that for them it's about forcing other people to toe yeah then point one per one tenth of

C. Six hundred thousand dollars salary I mean she was getting paid more by NBC than and by the way by the way the brought you must be and they're not they're just as crazy as the rest half a societal dump all right all right let me see if I was like I don't know twenty seconds left here so obviously tax was the the most kids were smart right then I'll get into Harvard well Al Gore Somehow won the lottery four times in a row but you look at look at Chelsea Clinton right she gets a job her first reporting job right in the butt because now he's going down in flames as we find out hunter Biden was getting paid eighty thousand dollars a month and his daddy knew all about it Yep Dad knew about candidate those were the only two there's only as at that's going to happen Joe I know I can't believe I'm saying this Joe was the most moderate one young had the biggest chance it been auditing flew the I hope they could but just never seems like it goes anywhere Clinton's you look at these folks Hunter Biden making eighty thousand dollars a month in then by these hyper partisan interests it will only further divide already terribly divided they hate altogether we're talking about trump making a phone call to Ukrainian president right think about and of course Clinton wants to pin you know Russia and as her reason for losing all about Russia in the whatever so everybody gets and not everybody but you know what you take a sampling from here so I had a buddy that went to high school with he went to Harvard he'd be the first to tell you that a big but it looks like a Chelsea look at Chelsea gets she gets Harvard is a very small college they're supposed to be by the way redistributing she is crazy she she really needs a straightjacket I'm not I'm not kidding incomes washing up a little bit the Clintons are certainly not getting paid what they used to get paid out definitely though can't afford it you know it was NBC ABC NBC can afford it cannot afford it gets right CNN Dafa can't afford it but some of the stuff now coming NBC by the way with the which Benton beach impeachment impeachment at impeachment impeachment show in heat did you see this week Hillary Clinton comes out and says Tulsi Gabbard is now a Russian look you've got two things going on first of all what if Clinton comes out and says Tulsi Gabbard Russian agent and puts out no evidence whatsoever not even give us a shred of information or shred of evidence that would lead you to that that that conclusion here's some paper and a pen just give us one or two he said we wanted to we're done you know we were we we don't want to work anymore we couldn't do that rather got people that depend on us right we have lots of clients at own manufacturing companies and they'll be asset she has seriously lost it out of her mouth now is like a rubber room may want to hop back in the rates because she really is all right so same thing with Adam Schefter Adam Schiff comes out of the closed-door meeting here's what here's what the whistle blower here's what the whistle blower said well wait a minute didn't you just completely falsify the the out of him getting in was he was number one in his class had he gone to a different school he may have been number two or three and you might not get out by the way his family was the all the whistleblowers to allow for second information think about how ridiculous this is I heard that that phone call was all quid pro quo where you in the room everybody else shame on them for not paying minimum wage she wasn't even paying them minimum wage so that one's enough when is enough abuse of the taxpayers enough for the Clinton's not Harvard Festival y'all get any yeah which by the way it should be an investigation itself right because let me tell you Al Gore's kids all four of them went to Harvard L. Gore smart yeah I don't know I to say love to retire but I don't because I'm afraid to sell this thing to somebody because I got people that are dependent on it we've had clients that have sold businesses and you know and they've said I'm only commodity that she's a Russian asset and Shaimaa this media I gotTa tell you the mainstream media is honest to God they just shut off the TV they're just so useless other transcript wasn't apparently damning enough why should we believe you now based on what you're telling us but we haven't actually heard from the witnesses do you think he wanted where are you on the phone no have you seen a transcript no but I heard it from somebody who heard it from somebody who was in the room when he was on the phone need to sell it to somebody they can trust that's going to keep these people here the Clintons have no employees right in fact the one when she was running her campaign she wasn't even paying employees minimum wage right right as she's telling me ability and I don't understand I don't understand how a Democrat looks at the current slate of what's going on and is you know doesn't do anything but hanging there had really low ars they are and they know that and they know that you know that's why trump's got thirty thousand people at his rallies and they they were showing forget where he was last week Ernie inside candidate you needed to have a Bill Clinton who ran as Bill Clinton not as the today version of Bill Clinton but the Bill Clinton ran a decade ago now people are GonNa be showing up to her books I might not be a bad deal she's raising hundreds of millions of dollars I mean literally hundreds of billions of dollars and by the way for the is end like a podcast like this are so important they will do everything they can to shut us down on twitter on facebook obviously on Youtube and every other place insinuating any evidence what's a little story just to maybe the media should I don't know asked Clinton a follow question Mrs Clinton where'd you get that what are you basing that on yes I'm not a reporter that would be my logical follow-up question I'm just saying do your job there's useless they're just an honest to God propaganda arm of the Democrat Party which is why this podcast is are we still don't know there was nothing right not to think about offensively met with Adam Schiff staff it was obviously ahead the community change the rules Luke to actually not have a product you know what I mean like it's one thing and we've been you know we've been in business for our time we have a lot of products Dr. company we can't just say even if the the the what inside the building was full outside Dallas Texas yeah and that's just not app there's no moment in the Democrat Party's yeah they needed to have a moderate going to fight for these union jobs right he goes I started listening to show I started to get it wow these people aren't helping me and guess what trump one last time because he got the union vote is more moderate who talked about smaller government You know and but then did the some of the social things that they all wanna clamp around right they're not they don't have that these people are not the best thing we can do is is the share these types of pop podcast radio shows all the different things that we do is why we why we do these things but they are trying a soft coup to the best of the yeah number there's not enough money in the world it's it's about power for them it's about being able to control things she now wants to handpicked candidate which obviously she doesn't like Tulsi this and he goes you know what he goes I gotta be honest with you prior to that you didn't hear a lot of that from the Democrat Party you heard the working man you know I'm GonNa we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA fight for you but I don't understand as a Democrat and you look at this current slate and if it was up to the Republican establishment we would have the same bill toast again but when you look at what's going on and we talked about this Twenty percent of the government and the Russian government combined gave for fifteen to twenty million dollar donations Daddy Clinton campaign nobody goes or the Clinton Foundation and the live without power three days a week right now PG and he just came out last week and said this is probably going to go on for the next decade a decade Kinda screwing us and I'm sick and tired of it and guess what the Democrats have done crap for us over the last twenty years I'm going to take a chance on you well trump is the best thing to happen to the Republican a lot in California in Baltimore Seattle PG and E. by the way we talked a couple of weeks go in California they're rolling black so people are saying I'm out I can't do this they want to turn us into Venezuela I tell you what one thing they are converting I had a conversation with somebody the other day guy went to high school with ran into him and he said I listen to podcasts radio uh he got the UAW members he got he got he got the the you know the union blue-collar I'm going to go to work I support you on Trade Ozzie candidate and at the end of his life sadly you know what was the American hero a really turned into a a very cynical of mean spirited person I'll leave it at that I won't even go beyond that the largest mutual fund companies in the country left New York last year saving seventy million dollars in taxes right the billionaire what's his name he just left New York to which one the Republicans are too stupid even real right people like Mitt Romney and the establishment Republicans don't have a clue our loss that sounds about right he was he there's everyone is the second floor you think the media was stop for one second and say add Mr Chef come on you you you've basically read a fake transcripts because the in trade exactly kidding right what about over the next ten years when I'm developing a tech company should go to Silicon Valley where the power only works three days yeah now trae could only be done on Wall Street and guess what the computer came out and a lot of people said you know what I could take this thing the palm beach and we did it Mike I saw is I'm a union guy and I just thought Democrats Union He Goes Cup hearing free free free free free free cell phone free this for that on it too right so you're at the you're feeding at the trough as well so mitt couldn't beat Obama because he was a lousy candidate and then he's a lousy person to be with you McCain couldn't beat Obama because he was -servative leadership in place to stop bailing out based on the current crop of Democrats I think we may have conservative leadership in place for quite some time yeah well you need that you're going to have another four years of trump the most recent one that just left New York City right one hundred of the hedge fund manager he's going down to Miami right he's leaving too so way I love the heat but I don't love love love the heat my number one priority would be to get out of near state from the taxes but not being able to deduct it and it's so fun with a third are going to be unemployed there and guess who's getting jobs down in south Florida Yup exactly that staff quick but you look at California now and they are underway to Venezuela status you know once you start having power only four out of five seven days of the week or four to five business days of the week that's a big problem you just got to get these states to go bankrupt when there's were with some of our traders in California and one of them said I know this tax extinct write it off against the Fed get a big chunk of back so it's not as bad as you think and I said axes I'm raising my family here my long term intentions are to be able to get outta here and spend the summers down in Spent Summers here but spend the majority of time down in Florida only because I remember one of our business partners in California years ago and we were talking about that there was an economist I forget it was nameless but he said you know I wish they would take away the same script honest I don't know when's IT GONNA come out I don't know just amazing the best is the first whistle blower he was I going to be hostile to me and he goes to the first time around I voted for Obama he goes and then I started to listen and figure out what was going on and I started to here he goes state for decades why were they able to abuse people but still survive I'll tell you why because Wall Street was there right and we did paper trades and everyone's I by trade any did you say he said I know yeah that's exactly right so I can't do it anymore that is a big agreement with that did it hurt me absolutely it hurt me but I get the ability to deduct state taxes and I said why he said maybe it was chuck and he said because because the states hide behind that and I'm not kidding you a week later why he's doing that and a record amount as you pointed out another big hedge fund manager leaving New York state now we can't deduct it anymore now you need now he's like no I'm not getting anything back explosive growth on the other side it was a big reason right it an AIG goes out of business there is explosive growth in other areas of the financial sector AIDS that's one of the things they did really well they took away the ability to deduct your state income tax and that stinks for I'm still a registered I'm still New York I'm still paying my nearest taken by the way the majority of his employees five hundred employees he sent look at I'll help you with relocation we're going to get you down there but he's taken two-thirds employees the bondholders which is you know again that's a you know changing the rules of the game while you're already playing the game right so be also the I'm surprised from an investor we should I should I go to Texas or should I go to Florida started a Well thank you good luck to companies leaving New York Alliance bird I don't know but but they're not gonNA bank they're not going to go out of business right they're going to do they're going to hopefully restructure and guess what hopefully they come out of it stronger bigger and better but that's nobody picks that business up instead sort of morphed its way along right it's right on the you know the same is true picket industry right General Motors right let it go bankrupt let it get rid of it's dad the wake about about that your business and you can't run you can't have power to Your Business Guy you'll die that's it you're going Venezuela fast now guess what business here bye-bye leadership unlike the last bailout it's you look at the last financial crisis where we bailed out all these companies like General Motors which by the way you still says standpoint that that didn't have a bigger impact but I will say I will say this it could and this is how a lot of these liberal policies happen it could have a bigger impact during the next race fashion because you're going to start to get people these these portfolio managers going well number one number when we thought we were GONNA pay back from General Motors we didn't yeah let me just explain taxpayers told me a billion dollars but we bailed all these companies should have just let them go bankrupt the banks should have just gone out of business they pick and choose something you never had the bust never had the bus right well you never had the bus in most of the companies that but again they picked shoot they they they decided which ones are going to you'll save like General Motors so you get explosive growth on the other side on the other side of that we had one to two percent economic growth forever because you had Obama putting massive amounts of regulations and then you never had I'll be four to eight years of pence the one at one of the greatest things I was really really disappointed with the tax rates if you look at the last the last go around as far as the trump quote tax all that stuff you go wait a minute I don't know if I agree with it by people forget about it but it builds up builds up builds buildup oh wait a minute the subprime mortgage market it goes bankrupt your last in line to get paid next up from shareholders is preferred stockholders next up from preferred stockholders are typically bondholders next up from Bonn it's power the most solar companies attack Oh yeah that's right exac well guess what ever for why why did New York media that's despicable behavior and you're talking about trump's tweets I mean I'm telling you the double standard is really amazed me dear right that turned everything upside down other folks and that wasn't right at all so they should have gotten paid back I what Obama did if trump did what Obama did the media has would have blown up but most of the time it takes a long time to progress and you know the community reinvestment act it you know Nafta the Glass Steagle Act us here picks up the phone he calls Oppenheimer one of the largest bond fund management companies in the in the country and he's threatens them to say you clicked subscribe button below and that will get you all the alerts news shows come out typically coming out every Wednesday or Thursday every week depending on how busy are scheduled throughout the week and don't forget yeah they talk about stockholder's equity holders getting the best returns over the long period of time but also taking the most risk because as a shareholder if the company holders our current liabilities rant and salaries and things like that but what they did is they wiped out the bondholders in favor of the unions and the and some of the walks up and he's on a dollar and they did and so they shafted their customers because they were threatened

"Should vote on the wall and see what sticks which what I see happening everywhere why are we adding signing on forty when my time because it's editor leading or do you do what everybody else does create it's there's no place for it it's it's hatred and it's bigot bigotry it's almost as if he's implying that we need to get back to the Penn state of it is Tuesday October eighth thank you for joining us menace to society the it's like it's embarrassing you as an alumni shut up I mean that is the most outrageous take I've ever heard and then he went on to talk about they can't even watch the NFL anymore because of and then he this paragraph I'm GonNa read right now is unbelievable that this is even prevalent in society today he said through the players and said basically detailed my wife and I are proud graduates Penn state we follow all Penn State Sports we love it all blah blah blah tattoos and endzone antics and it's like those are the fans that are that are on their way out and those are not the future of the game so no you don't WanNa spend this past weekend Ha Auburn Florida I had to be so we're going to have some analysis into that shortly on the show but I wanNA start with a little current events couple look disgusting and are certainly not attractive I was in awe when I read this because for I mean a litany of reasons but I think the accountability in today's social media world and we need to find this guy he needs he needs to answer his actions because I saw it when I was a coach players will get these letters even coaches we get letters sometimes threatening sometimes racist like that and it's there's no place for it in society there's no place for sports and there's no place for people to sit side told that the penn state we all loved the Penn State that covered up for child molestation and what are we talking about here because the guy had dreadlocks and let it occur because short dreadlocks can look phenomenally clean and very attractive and very handsome I've seen it several times and they just like any though the athletes of today are certainly superior to those in my days we miss the clean cut young men and women from those days watching the game on TV we couldn't help but notice team was a letter that a I guess an alumnus of Penn State wrote to one of the players and it's clearly an old white gentleman has I mean Dave Peterson is his name I don't know who he is or or what his background is but he wrote a letter to one of the anyone of any race can look sloppy with any hairdo it's ridiculous and it needs to be said and talked about because just moving on is not the National College football show and more really excited about this episode there was a huge huge weekend in college football some big time games and I hope you check out the menace four well awful hair surely there must be mirrors in the locker room don't you have parents or girlfriend who told you that shoulder length dreadlocks West show where we detailed Ohio states big win over Michigan State the Michigan Iowa debacle if you want to call it that but we really WanNa look today at the game of the week listen because it needs to be addressed and it's wrong and if you have those feelings you need to look in the mirror because you are wrong that that is prejudice that is that is racist and it's not right which energy on it because it's clearly just a delusional old racist human being it's just let let's move forward it's kind of like people that listen to the show and we're like I could do without the languages Jn sit in a rocking chair and smoke your pipe enough enough enough get out get out but I wanted to address it the other thing current events the things that are in the news and caught my eye that I wanted to talk about an address and the first thing which is outrageous was IDC has really gained nationals. Like I don't care if you're going to have to deal with it the reality of the world we live in so get over it or don't listen get over the dreads or don't watch football on go look in the mirror and sit on your I just wanted to bring it up because it kind of got a handshake in my blood boiling and that's just there's no place for that in any in any venue or in any topic applete hands up don't hold me accountable look at that guy and it's it's insane I mean there's obviously no chance for success in this program look at the right now Florida State is in shambles and I don't know if anyone is paid attention probably not other than Florida state fans to the absolute dissension of the staff said what tell us about the two quarterback system and he said you're GonNa have to ask coach Taggart he just he puts whoever he wants in and and both are efficient to run run the offense right now between Kendall brawls and Willie Taggart in interviews it's it's they're they're basically throwing each other under the bus and they they gave him I mean he has four years remaining on a five million dollar a year deal that means to fire him they would have to write a check for seven eighteen million dollars and the reality is not going to do that they're going to bite the bullet and take this for another year or two probably until or they're going to try to find cause here's the problem that I looked at it and I wanted to talk about kind of coaching contracts and how they work the problem Florida state has right now is that Willie Taggart has an eighty five percent guaranteed contracts of 'cause breaking the contract and it's it's really crazy now the other contract that I was floored to find out about a couple of people told me about silly Willy Nilly tag about play call he said I don't know I'm not office coordinator and then they they asked recently after this last game they ask Kendall brawls base contract almost entirely I mean he makes like one million dollars a year something extremely low for for a big time head coach points per tackles for loss if they have more tackles for loss or sex then the opponent that's another two thousand bonus and it just made me think if all of this all of his contract is incentive based where does that put his loyalties to winning a game because ultimately if you're trying to thousand are you that is a dangerous place in better on dot and his I's crossing his t's he'd better be on his game because they will fire him at the Mir sent uh-huh towards the bottom I would say of hide coaches salaries but his agent built all as an incentive based contract and it's funny because on October twenty seven breath it was last year you can't loss to umass twenty two to seventeen and earned edsel an eight thousand dollar bonus got it and I don't know if anyone paid attention to randy edsels contract but it's really an unheard of contract and he for example it is it is an incentive find a way to to find a reason to fire him and that's a dangerous dangerous situation to be in when they're looking for a reason to breach contract and find cause it creates this this concern that he might he might make some decisions with financial gain in mind that aren't the best right now stop it to two reasons one auburn is not a nationally relevant team and I've said it to these incentives so he got a bonus for losing to Umass just think about that and so I wanted to look at some of these bizarre incentives one is if if his teams it looked good it was rocking you love to see it I mean you do though I mean ultimately that was dollar bonus and then they have a litany of categories where if they are leading the if they beat the opponent in a number of a number of times all year I said it after they beat Oregon I'll say it continuously when they end up with four losses stop it stop trying to inflate this team a fire in Indiana basically for free because the contract was so so jacked up that they fired him without cause and he basically didn't get any money out of it and he's just out it was like sorry you want to make that four grand on that game and the outcome becomes secondary to financial gain bazaar and then there's all kinds of ten thousand dollars if is if you have more sex than the other team you're going to your corner blitz blitz every play blitz I mean even if it's not the best thing to do blitz you're gonNA blitz because you need to get those sacks you want those tackles for loss options and they won nineteen to twelve so auburn is out stop trying to keep them relevant for quality wins for other SEC teams I will that that's my first point my second point is stop it everyone in the country stop it your contract sucked and that's the end of it but anyways enough about Kinda random topics let's let's talk about the game of the Week Auburn at Florida is in the red zone if they go to the red zone more times than the opponent even if they never score and get beat by one hundred he gets another two thousand dollar bonus and the same goes for defense let's say Florida was when I was there yeah and the sad thing is and it's GonNa come back now because Dan Mullen is killing it and it's going to come back because it's just something to keep an eye on but coaches contracts fascinating if you ever look at them how they're structured how their work the buyouts all of that because I think back to Kevin Wilson Kevin Scores I at any given game so they can feel on the first drive and then lose sixty one two three that's a two thousand dollar bonus for ransom if they're leading at halftime another two thousand it's just what the swamp is no not anymore we'll must champ snuff out but man the swamp was rocking and lose three two or three they'll lose to Fisher but more story here is Auburn is not even I mean they should be relations so it's it's scary and things like that happen those incentive based contracts and czar things happen because it can become more of a trend it's like randy edsall did it so I want that if they rank in the top six and a four punt coverage or kick return yardage punt return yardage and this is just it's bizarre because Florida had seven turnovers said four fumbles three intersect there is a legacy I get it but he threw a fifty fifty ball against Oregon the DB misplayed it the wide receiver made a great play and when urban was there that was just played we played sittard l. one time and it was rocking through the third quarter above twenty twenty five percent completion percentage I think if my geometry is correct I don't know if that's what that is but here's the six of his completions were behind the line of scrimmage so any downfield throw I'm talking anything past the line of scrimmage he was for his team and it's just crazy I never heard of anything like that no one really has it's one of a kind the contract he has and the coordinators actually both have the same contract oh nicks was the lowest graded player in the game he graded out at twenty nine percent twenty nine percent eleven of twenty seven really really good story and a really really good freshman quarterback he's not Trevor Lawrence his who top tanner's the one thing I will say from the people that I know that were there and just from Washington on TV. The swamp was swamped. I'm sorry I said not to bring it up to a fifteen on third and fourth down one only one trip into the red zone didn't score turn the ball over seven times they are out are you going to if you turn the ball over seven times and lose a game you are awed an average team and I'm giving you a gift at calling you I think even more so than a good quarterback all is he's a talented kid right now when he's not even a good quarterback here's the problem the story line is there the narratives to make Alabama Lsu look better stop it now I don't think they will I don't know they're not going to stop well they show it doesn't matter but people that when the national media is absolutely over hyping something part of being real is then like track shing a kid it's like I'm not trashing NEX I don't I don't want to I won't I think he is doing an absolutely phenomenal job for a freshman that's you're listening eighty seventy five percent or thank you Jesus not to I'm sorry Jesus Christ as my savior admirable for a freshman that's all ended discussion let's stop talking about Auburn and let's let's move onto another conversation and we can circle back on the bow knicks was immediately vaunted as this they have bow knicks and it's like time out here's my problem being real that's not the number one pick in the draft he's a true freshman playing in the sec and he's doing good as you could expect them to do at this point and it goes on was the problem people want to make Bo Knicks bigger than he is and I don't WanNa make him less than he is here's what he is a give it wouldn't have been I'm not saying he would done worse than bonus but it wouldn't have been good and it's not Joe Pearl might be a top five pick he might be the heisman trophy winner he ah they should be ranked like twenty three right now yeah roughly and right around we're Texas saying Emma's relationship I said You'd know football here is there percentage grades forty-three percent forty five percent forty six percent forty seven percent fifty eight percent that is talking about Joe Borough Right now people are are saying is one of the heisman front runners maybe the best quarterback in college football I one hundred yards for Florida think about that he had a game and people will say what about P. Rhine yeah he riley what that elite freshman he's just a really good freshman quarterback he should not be playing auburn is the moral of the story I should have somebody else he averages are you going to say the same about Florida when they lose four games I don't I don't know how they're not lose forty swamp morals the that's the game moral the story is Auburn is not nationally relevant this year they're they're front seven is as good as any the problem the promise Auburn is he has to be the guy yeah the benefit for Joe is he was at a school that had guys so he didn't yeah that's great you can't just be nationally relevant with just a fronts we can't do it one aspect of their game is good there's fifteen other guys that play right so he is playing Ed let me tell you where Joe Borough was three years ago right probably not good enough to play at Ohio state or Lsu like it's not a knock on the kid he just not ready up bad day for the offense line and here's the here's the other problem and not I don't want to see a problem Florida doesn't have the Gill on offense to go play a big time team other than Freddie Swain Freddie Swain was lights out he had ninety but he's he's still was two years removed from high school he was not yeah if Joe Borough would have been the starting quarterback at Lsu as a true freshman yet auburn is not that team yet and Florida by the way is not that good Florida had minus four rush wrap up didn't tackle him when eight yards great run didn't didn't get touched didn't get Khan contested after the safety took a bad angle and he beat him right which play like it and I love him I love him I always thought he could become something like that but timeout Bo Knicks is not that I'm not going to discount that that that shows that you have the speed to make make that breakaway run let's talk about other than that run let's say that linebacker hit him in the being yards in the first quarter three fumbles in the first five drives in the first quarter here their own line grades there's five Oh linemen should be at least starting for sure and guess what he's probably going to be really really good he's probably going to be a great player yeah and that's what I already said it the front seven of Auburn is legit I get it so they held him to three point whatever carry that's because they have a legit front seven outside of that is what we're talking about big run who yards a carry so I'm not going to say he's not a good player but he didn't show it in that game Freddie's Wayne did yeah Oh and tackled him and it's a four yard game which didn't happen but I'm not here to play hearsay but outside of that he had thirteen carries on forty two yards for three point back and forth or did he breaks the tackle I don't know regardless he he got hitting the whole not an open field tackle where he made a guy miss he got hit in whole God in your ears yeah Oh yeah in a year or two we're GONNA be talking about next like Oh man look at the strategies may look how much better like what are we on on a big level yeah I mean that could be attributed to the line also that he had that three point two yards per carry well the bottom line is he already you have to be the guy right away and then he went to Lsu and he was ready at that point to play he he was still still I mean his first year was good he had to hit one hundred thirty yards he had one run one big run one run he got hit in the whole on a poor tackle you could you could go nerve who gone and my activities here are fast I once they vary beat upside down in my critics and kiss my run broke a big one but Florida's defense shut it down shut area impressive they're fences is good I mean is it really no argument there and so everything you just heard was most of what you just heard is what everyone's going to talk about here's what I wanNA talk about the out of the player the game but but but he's a West if you really want to support your team this season don't just sit on the sidelines game with mybookie Dot AG and if you join right now my bookie will double your first deposit fell games yeah so so that's still in process yep but you did did you double your money I did oh look at you use Promo Code Menace Emmy Nace to activate the offer that's Promo code menace to double your cash visit mybookie Dot ag today Bet Multiple Games together for much bigger payout so if you're going to bet this season do the smart thing and go to mybookie dot ag because no one gives you the head coach told me everything you need to know this guy gets it he understands football he knows they need to be dominant on special teams and knows that was a huge part of why more ways to win between football season the playoffs and the start of the NBA NHL seasons it's time to get off the sidelines and get into action I start with DAD worse case scenario you're even if you lose like they say playing with house money play with money so check it out when you get a chance mybookie dot ag try to bed a little to win a lot try parlay for instance if you like a couple of the big favorites this week which you did this weekend parlays are perfect because they'd let you I don't know about you guys but for me a game is ten times more exciting when I'm putting my money on it sometimes I feel a gut feeling about a matchup and sometimes I'm just betting at Mississippi State and became an expert eventually and so they are they're killing special teams so that that's a huge advantage on Florida's Front for sure Serb Myra was successful and so he bought in he and he's brilliant urban always been a special teams Guy Yeah and Dan Mullen is brilliant so he dove he dove into it you play you win you get paid and I know we talked about it and you did this week did it yeah over last week I signed up and put one hundred bucks in there on my team because they're my team regardless of whether you've been betting for years or you're ready to play for the first time mybookie is your best bet this season if you're the kind of guy who likes to it's impossible to read it's impossible to even even say who the away team is as I read it he hit me up immediately after listening to the show I can tell you this we punt we kick we returned but but what that small conversation and and what I honestly what I watched after he yeah he got a new format common otherwise he's going to be fired we're GONNA look for some attractive female to do it or something because he's killing me hire to becoming a head coach given to shits about specialties he didn't know anything about it he even once I remember one time grabbing the hallway was like hey at some point I'd like you to kind of under percent so you took advantage so I I would I would advise everyone to if you if you like throwing some money also games go to my book Dot Ag Double Your money and then just bet with the freemen Aubert head one return for minus five yards aches you can't ask for any more out of butter well puttering punk scene yeah exactly yeah you see I have a confession to make and you you can take it for what it's worth people's picks last week apparently I don't know how but anyways so people went six three unfortunately I miss read two of his two of his picks and so he went what four
Kawhi Leonard, LeBron James/Lakers, Ben Simmons/76ers, Klay Thompson/Warriors, Kyrie Irving
"Good morning everyone and welcome to first things first i'm general basketball hall of famer chris carter nick right here is nick right boy dandy eight maybe overbooking storylines are keeping a very entertained it turns out the warriors do have a long term plan for dangelo russell and the lakers are big favorites to win the title but the biggest story this morning is being biggest decision for one co why leonard where we'll the finals mvp play next season the lakers and clippers her front runners out west they have both completed their meetings with co why now the raptors were reportedly get their chance to do the same so which team has the edge are owned chris carter has the inside track yesterday tweeting this quiet update i've just been a former co why has not made a decision it's a think the lakers are ahead of the clippers or the raptors would be wrong see i hope i did voice justice what's the best option for corn you're up some better other chris carter cc voices you and everything that went eleven tackles this is where i think the to try to understand why it's difficult but let's just try to understand and the whole process leading up to where we are today july third go why was not happy with the medical advice and he got in san antonio after going back and forth with them as far as was he able to play he said he wasn't healthy enough to play he demanded a trade and when he did that he demanded being traded to the los angeles lakers they denied him being traded their so then he said i'll go i'll go to the clippers i'll go l like i'll play for the clippers i don't need the play with superstars their stars so now everyone is developed this opinion the co why didn't wanna play with players they weren't good no it's been totally the opposite because why number one wants to improve on his game and number two he wants to compete for championship chipped he's got to any like the get hey whole bunch more before he retires but ultimately black a lot of people where do you want to work so right now i'm gonna tell you this process started on sunday night and they have only been into this for less than forty eight hours and along the way he was trying to go back to los angeles to play basketball and that could have been either with the lakers or with the clippers but they experienced it just happened last two months would change everything it would change any other athlete flight when you have the type of experience said he had with that team in toronto with the coaching staff with the medical staff with those fans what he did the philadelphia what he did jonathan the bucks and ultimately to the throne the golden state warriors that experience would change you so right now he is going through a very very tough decision what i think is best for why is he signed with the lakers because they shouldn't be about multiple championships kenny win a championship in l like what the clippers yes he could it's gotta be awful difficult with lebron in eighty there in why realizes that ultimately you wanna play with good players if he wants to come to the lakers even if lebron wasn't there in in trying to team up with anthony davis that something very very intriguing he doesn't think that the toronto thing how long can they sustain that you know how long they're gonna be able to bring those guys back is it a one year deal and the next year he decides to go somewhere else if i'm why when i decided to go to los angeles lakers because based on what i'm hearing he wants to win multiple championships in he's always wanted to go back home the southern california's real quick before i give my opinion on this you and said sunday on twitter don't expect indecision anytime soon we talked earlier this week you said you thought it could potentially bleed the end of this week now tomorrow is a holiday the july fifth is quiet uncles birthday correct yes and so do you think that we could potentially get a decision today before the fourth of july holiday i got no indication we would get a decision today but i do believe that the holiday in making the decision i do believe we are in the final countdown because we were i wouldn't be shocked originally predicted then it wouldn't happen before fourth of july but given the importance of that holiday to this country do i think hawaii leonard decided to go back to toronto all the fourth of july yeah like i i mean i know they don't know why but let's just use some commonsense in trying to determined that typically logically it's gonna be they're now today or will be announced friday and now it should be you know kevin durant made his famous decision three years ago tomorrow it was on the fourth of july so wouldn't be unprecedent per player did make this news and all that i gotta canada right maybe he could on the fourth of july say i'm gonna go to the lakers go to the color guard i'm gonna come back to the hey so i think the best option for quiet leonard's loss angeles lakers and i would think that even if they didn't have lebron james i wanna make that clear i think that ability to pair air with anthony davis it when we're talking about the best players in the league the the that top seven which people can disagree on new order but everyone's got the same seven best guys lebron co why yawn as katie staff harden anthony davis the three youngest are kate you're co why anthony davis an honest honest is obviously not an option here so it would make sense is for his career trajectory he also wanted to be in los angeles to begin with but these other see i'm looking at it almost firmly opposite angle what is their argument against each place their argument against toronto is the age of the roster the weather of course the taxes promote forget that age of the roster they can immediately if he comes back defend their title they might and all of a sudden trump the lakers and become the vegas favorites if not they would certainly leave above milwaukee is the second favorites and the favorites out east but marcus saul is probable is on the last year of his deal kyle lowry is nearing being serge ibaka might not be nearing the end of his career but certainly is probably already passed the beginning of the end of his prime prime they only young guy that you would know you can grow with is pascal seok coming to a lesser extent fred vanfleet danny green's of free agents so they age of the roster does toronto i would think would have to be on a short term deal the clippers clippers to me would at this point be the biggest shock because all they have going for them in my opinion is the coach and the gm not the players now you're gonna say the city but eli's the same city is the lakers so that almost cancels insoles itself out who's the second best player on the clippers i think it's lou williams and i like lou williams a lot but it's easier second best guy argue competing for championships even with why because quiet as great as he was last year we know the raptors had an excellent ross around in an argument against the lakers is the total disarray that we've seen from the front office the the unknown on the coaching staff in frank vogel andy lack of death but i almost cross out the lack of depth because the top of the roster would be the strongest we've ever seen him be a history i think the lakers make the most sense they were his first choice and it is without a doubt his best opportunity to win multiple titles and for as long as he forget lebron again and as long as you need davis wanna stay together you will have me best duo in basketball if lebron would say you know what i love space jam so much i'm gonna do movies fulltime i'm retiring you would still have the best duo and basketball next year with gwyneth and we're gonna talk so much more about this today but i don't think he dismissed the clippers and say well they just have a good coach and gm they've a fantastic front office there well run organization they have great stability in those three things at the lakers just have not shown they've had in the last a couple of months and it seems like a guy like co i leonard wants that stuff wants to coach the front office the stability knowing that the future is sort of laid out for them and one of the things i'd i'd love to know before we break harris who do you think he's got a better shot at winning with we know the lakers but would you say clippers at the raptors well let's say also let's not forget toronto people didn't think messiah was going to potentially stay there they now have a whole bunch of stability they just fired the coach higher one of those systems they had just gotten rid of one of the best players in franchise history so let's not act like why can't function in the real world course because we try to act like we know we don't know what the white ones but a lot of the discussions and what slowed up this process which answering those questions and that's why it was important for him to talk to magic johnson himself absent of the lakers when you're a kid growing up in southern california and you see what magic johnson has gone through you need the explanation for that i believe that's been clarified five but ultimately in the case they asked me about it's about anthony davis it's beyond lebron anthony davis would be the favorite outside of john is to play with anthony davis has more developed game then john he just as good defensively as john is so to me i believe it's gonna be it's gonna cancel itself out but anthony davis is going to be the swing piece is far decide i believe work why is going to so quickly the answer your questions and if we scratch out the lakers there's no question the better chance to win a title between the clippers and the raptors this year's the raptors the clippers process was two stars remember they had to max cap spot right the reason we thought the clippers could be championship favorites who's collide plus someone eighty plus katie or jimmy butler tobias harris coming back that was unlikely but if that happened co why plus lou williams patrick beverley mantras herrell they contender and a nice team but they're not a favorite kwai going back to toronto we just saw them wanna title yet and so i think to me it's as far as winning lakers raptors clippers and i think most people would agree hey this is nick

the nets to acquire dangelo russell at left some scratching our heads with assumption well they end up trading him in the near future but the latest rumors have a swell scratching our heads again lawyers say they have a quote longterm vision fern dangelo alongside steph and clay nikki buying the warriors here's long term plan here no i'm buying until about the trade deadline may be the end of the season is this just the latest rising stock a little that well this list and this makes no sense this fit doesn't make sense there they this is about trying to tread water all clay thompsons out this is about getting something rather than nothing except furry massive trade exception for kevin durant walking out the door this is about eight brand new multi billion dollar reno you were about to open in san francisco and not having the warriors thirty games into that arena be fourteen and sixteen that's what this is about this is not about long term planning and one could argue for long term planning purposes what you gave up thirty angela which is two first round picks end andre iguodala that the total cost yeah it's multiple transactions but if you adjust like kevin durant walk out that door you would have two first round picks envy angela russell just like governor and walk out that door and can attach the second round pick to him in some form a sign and trade you would have two first round picks andre what i wanna trade exception like you do what you gave up to get angela russell was substantial end it's not just the fit once clay comes back it's the loss of iggy off the court in the locker room when you now have left on that roster three guys livingston's gonna be gone as well three guys who have been all these finals steph clay who's hurt and dream on who wants eight contract extension and i do not believe is going to be offered the max contract extension he believes he deserves for all those reasons this is to me not is cut and dry but some would make could see you're also seeing giving up the thing that made the warriors who they were a couple of years ago and that defense i mean this is not adding more defensive roster it's adding more often whether refit center not and right now losing eggy and you'd think they'd want a short now that's a great point in basketball fans who have looked at the warriors over the last five years for those years they've been exceptionally defensively yeah we talked about their three point shooting we talk about their ball movement we talk about those things but at the end of the day the reason why they've been so dominant is because what they do on the defensive end and they'd been consistent with the you can't do that with staff in dangelo russell that is just not there skillset now steve kerr and bob myers so they're gonna create a new brand of basketball 'cause that's really only sales here in nick is right this is just blow this is they place holder this is the try the entertain the people the harlem globetrotters like we're not gonna be real good but we are going to be fancy to start the season and mrs into clay is able to get healthy because if you look at the west and i and i know the reason why i think they traded form with because they thought someone else potentially minnesota someone else who's going to get in the game right with brooklyn and get a deal so they didn't think he was gonna be just free agent where they could just find him they jumped in there and did the sign and trade for k d but to me this is not a championship basketball not the building blocks this is just another way to build a get an asset hold the asset into i couldn't trade because dangelo russell he has totally changed his image there is there are a lot of people in the mbh who would like to see him you know on their basketball team any is only twenty three right he's got real value in so what do i think happens i think at some point dangelo russell is traded for packaged minnesota that senator on robert covington some picks you get younger you get longer you add some defense that makes sense but dangelo russell is these other then i think kimball walker most pick and roll centric player in the league going to a team doesn't like throwing the pick and roll how many picking rose they run last year as a team so i think it's nine twenty eight for dangelo nine forty four golden state as a whole the whole team in those numbers might be off by a few but it was he was about a dozen pick and roll shy himself of what the warriors ran as a team it's not often steeper wants run warrior fans by the way were begging him to do why are they running a staffing katie pick and roll why would they not run a seemingly 'cause they wanna do the motion ball movement beautiful basketball firs twenty fifteen twenty fourteen orphans and i support sport that but what they other reason they made this move is they saw what happened in the finals when clay went out in that game and then missed a game and when katie was still out and when you can just focus on staff that often and doesn't matter if they got a good defense in that situation that often grinds to a halt and so they needed some other scoring so i understand it but let's not pretend that all comes back to what the word is gonna play play at the three they're gonna run a three yard line sign up that's not what's gonna happen but i just we we had shackle and a couple of weeks ago see and we were talking to him off the air about a different player different team different situation one of the first things you mentioned was money he said who's making the most money there yes andy he was talking about it in the cons in the context of the money speaks more than anything in india locker room and dream on green's about to make eighteen million dollars his three championships been five finals one defensive player coming second twice dangelo russell's twentythree years old delta be on his third teams to make twenty seven million dollars now you gave dream on max extension this summer which i'm sure he would have happily take then that goes away i don't believe awards are gonna do that i think they're gonna consider all their options next summer with dream on that is a recipe for disaster especially when he's not in the locker room as adults and romy for calling gore's claes on the training table and steps getting worn out every night like so this is not risk free for golden state no it is eight what we call a place holder but it's also protection for their star player they saw what happened and bob myers like i gotta get some help before clay comes back so he misses fifty games man step misstep would be a different player the defense is if he would say we wouldn't go back when we were saying in the playoffs wow i haven't seen the defense like this since college we will see a lot of college defense is going the golden state warriors they didn't acquire another or at least start your morning cohen reportedly met with the lakers and clippers will now meet with the toronto raptors before making a decision of where he will play basketball next season our own chris carter has the inside track yesterday tweeting quite has not made a decision is i think the lakers are ahead of the clippers or the raptors would be wrong see what's your best option you frank and i just my opinion and they did ask my opinion to and i told him that i thought i would play with anthony davis i believe that the front office stuff can be worked out and i do believe anthony davis is the big character in this so so i believe it's about championships and if it is you should go the best place to try to win multiple james earl good options to me there's one clear a third option might be the one who takes that's the clippers that would be the toughest mountain to climb as far as to win instantly and the best thing the clippers have to offer is the city and the lakers can offer that as well the lakers he joins the lakers they instantly become the best big three we've ever seen and he an anthony davis can be the best duo in basketball for a decade even wants lebron's don't make i gotta let you in on this i did promise agenda some type of update on co why i hope i get it before the end of the show but there were definitely being updated on co why today okay when that happens i promise i will let you know thank you appreciate tax if the lakers don't get why no need to worry the purple and gold adventure doubly yesterday and a one year deal nick thoughts on that link to the lakers listen i know jared so i like him personally an this is a guy who last you're even though i think he averaged five points a game for the nets they were always better with him on the court off the court he is a great guy amongst young players is far telling a more tubby defensively makes the right past is the type of guy you need in the locker room and this is the type of guy the lakers with there without why oregon at the fill out the roster with this fars savvy veterans on minimum contracts he recruited himself to the lakers offshore belly ring will draw scarcer instead i wasn't recruiting recruiting lebron and they deemed to tell them i want it to come play with them he wants a chance of rain for his career's up there's a great spot for yeah it's a good move for him in last year especially in that series against philadelphia it not own stats but when you're at the games and you see the reason why brooklyn is in such a good position not only the front office on marks not only the coach but they had veterans like him there were able to pass that team often i believe he doesn't leave brooklyn if kevin durant is healthy gray but he is trying to get that first chip in good for him what a great eighty two games with lebron james eighty potentially co why traveling around he's gonna keep it loose now he ain't gonna help the team body fat tests when they take that test is gonna be like he's not myles garrett workout he's the one who loves him as the body joe the whole lack lack of better at all he went on to the warriors klay thompson underwent successful surgery yesterday to repair his tornado seattle claes recovery slated five to seven months nick how good can the warriors being if clay is back to the playoff claes back full strength of the playoffs that's a very tough out they could be could the warriors if players back full strength and they get the right draw be a western conference finalist i believe they go so you believe their playoff team automatic oh i'm these people saying the word single make the playoffs puts it back on steph curry's name steph curry or about chris mannix that put him on the magic you're gonna win the mvp you know the warriors are gonna find their way into the playoffs based on the strength of steph curry steve kerr and that infrastructure and of clay is back in time for the playoffs i mean they're not a championship contender but they're a tough out for anybody every doctor i've ever heard with ac ill they always say they're successful but i think something should be noted there was a lot of time between the time clay he got hurt and the time they operated that means there was significant swelling if you look at the articles after the game play talked about about his knee swelling up so in that swelling you can't operate successfully into you allow that swelling to go down so they had a long period of time before they went the elway has this procedure i expect clay because clay he has been more you're not just by name but injury i spread jim the comeback in the shorter side of this closer to five months been seven months all right let's move onto a free agent boogie cousins they oft injured all star center has yet to find a suitor and recent reports are there's not a market for boogie member cousins signed a one year deal with the warriors in order to turn heads and land the big deal this off season all right nick what's the best fit for boogie cousins who is tough man i i don't chris brought up a really interesting team we've talked about this yesterday which is the spurs they need a center i think he's a good enough pass or you could do what they do but they don't have cap space and they don't seem to have a ton of interest i dallas have the cap space there obviously there's only one free agent left that is gonna demand huge money it's why he's not understanding dallas dallas might be on danny green but they could still bring in buggy but does dallas wanna play kristaps at center have him be there stretch five they haven't shown much interest in boogie i think lana anna could be interesting but it's gonna be another one year proven type of situation maybe he can get the deal julius randle guy will not this year last year which is two years around twenty million bucks with a player option on the second year so he can if he plays great then go try to cash in on free agency but there's a tough spot he he did everything right as far as his achilles rehab he wasn't a distraction and locker room he was a good teammate and then just like he popped his achilles he's gonna make a hustle play to help his team any tears his quad and i know he came back chris faster than anyone could have expected and that torn quad but he didn't look like he could jump over a phone book like he he looked athletically and he was never great athlete athletically we he looked like a shell of his former self that's concerning and so this is tough offer bogey but i i it doesn't shock me there's not a huge more but there in lies the dangerous sometimes when you do wanna rush herself back do you think going to the warriors was the decision for him to try to go out there and prove something in ear which would that have been a choice now looking back were looking back on it if i look back when i gotta say it's a mistake in the reason why it was a mistake not that he went there the mistake was rushing himself back early because then he had two major you're injuries in the quad made everyone that's what it and it's keeping everyone back because they saw the car they saw the lack of athleticism but they couldn't distinguish between the killys did he lose it there or because the quad i believe if if he doesn't come back i believe there are suitors for him because they didn't see that bad basketball he was playing at the end of the season so his chest move that's what he said when he called the warriors dream on them i'm gonna join the warriors that magic carpet right came to a crash ending in he was forced onto the court because he wanted to build the chains the optics on his career i believe he's just signed with the lakers for the minimum with anthony davis anthony davis does not wants to play the five is never wanna play the five and him in boogie cousins both of them together they're both best basketball together so i don't believe it's one of the moves it the lakers must do but i that to me is a logical landing landing spot for someone like boogie cousins in just like ity several a couple of years ago if you try to play injured all right your money if you're in a contract year they will hold it against you so i don't see teams means paying guys for being heroes so if i'm an athlete i'm out there you need to watch just self kevin durant's having do what happened to him but because he was so good he was able to get the guaranteed money ity was not there in boston in his career and he just signed for the minimum yeah like this which is the amount of money that he lost boogie cousins died in the loose ball tearing his achilles going for another loose ball tearing his squad he's lost a lot of money the last couple of years and the other thing that hurt boogie nights in a relatively small sample size we come back on january eighteenth from january tenth through the end of the regular season boogie it turned himself prior to this year in doing good three point shooting big man last year in sat in sacramento thirty six percent new orleans who's thirty five percent late last year who's twenty seven percent so if you don't have their lettuce ism and people were concerned no legs are right argue actually a stretch five or you just a center that takes threes they can't make them i mean a poor man's joel embiid in that regard and embiid had a really bad right one shooting year this year that the problem is well end even though he's on his best behavior see i don't think people have totally put in the closet locked away the concerns about his care about the teammate and character and how he's going to deal with another year of emotional devastation and financial disappointment that's the thing the jila pointed out how could you repair now we went to the game in the garden he gets thrown out the game industry street journal's like the sets we just sat down and he was already thrown out of helping you reach in the warriors not winning in the term world it they went through was not able to repair the innings but good catch by hugh as far as boogie cousins this not working out heart let's move on out of the philadelphia seventy sixers were all in on ben simmons despite his well let's call it has slight lack of shooting from long distance reportedly signed a five year one hundred seventy million dollar max we'll stay in philly simmons has long been paying desi franchises savior alongside joel embiid but some have their doubts one of which is every on chris carter says cc good or bad idea to max out ben simmons will you have to a in mbh the economics in you only got a little more than three hundred players thirty teams so you have to be able to take some chances and be like no other league man they pay on potential and they will guarantee you a hundred million dollars but i saw chandler parsons number of years ago two thousand sixteen he got ninety over ninety million for four years from the grizzly there have been a lot of bad contracts a lot of guys got maxed out they weren't max players weren't even all stars the sixers have no choice now ben simmons might not develop a jump shot but here's an all star player and he is the next guy up in free agency they spent over thirty kosta three and a half billion dollars this sudden including benz new deal but a lot of those guys they're they're not all stars but they're still getting a hundred million you have to maksim out you brought him into you're program he made in the first the first pick in the draft you knew that first year he wasn't going to play so that's one the biggest problem because we got one year when we didn't see him develop so now he's getting his new deal which only playing three season so and that becomes a problem i don't believe he's doing develop a jump shot like other people think and if he could right now people criticize julius randle people the knicks signing him at ben simmons could be him now because he shoots thirty four percent he averaged twenty one in nine well no he's a better playmaker but the expectation his game is not where julius randle game is so who is ben simmons at his best i know these limited as a shooter but i'm not going to stop that's not shouldn't stop him from getting a max contract with the seventy six you after maximum now this is to me in over arizona and pick of the draft and if you redid the his draft to be the number one pick all over again warts and all like if we take the last five years of drafts cross out this year the rookies who haven't played guys you would rather have been simmons in the last five drafts sites in this season karl anthony towns i think it's proven himself donovan mitchell i would say luca donncha pitch and then you get to the maybe he's like deer and fox jason tatum trey young i he he's fourth or fifth as far as the last his draft class the draft class before the two after so you have to max out the problem is he doesn't get any better from year one year two and which is really year to year three cheer point but as far as playing and weaken show it to you it is by bacon for every player some progression what if you look at these numbers if you can't see the top number let's hear one what's here to there is no discernible difference i mean he's he's from year one year two he went up one point per game scoring less than a rebound the game went down happened assist on the field goal percentage went up a point and a half like he's the same guy and if he improve with a max contract looming over him last year with the pressure of well let me get better and see if maybe i'm not gonna take take this or maybe there's something else out there for what makes you think now that he has all that money he's gonna go put time sweat blood and tears into saint james here point say this off season i believe is gonna spend more time but people we watched so many guys shoot the ball we think shooting the basketball is easy and we think guys who can't shoot the basketball we're pro freight all this oh yeah this is going to happen i'm gonna tell you what's more alarming the numbers you start looking at the radius away from the bucket that he is in years one in year two and you start to realize he's not comfortable away from the basketball i mean away from the basket last year he took twentyfive total shots sixteen plus feet from the basket that's impossible twentyfive shots not three pointers he said he got hundred and seventy million right that's ten million for every three pointer attempted in his career that he's taken seventeen to twenty five shots outside of sixteen feet last year the free throw line fifteen feet three you you you say see we we appropriated to people find i'm not appropriating damn then he's going to become a good shooter what i am gonna say is we have seen i saw brook lopez go from a guy who never shot threes to a guy who's a great through but you know the thing about brook lopez we didn't have no expectations for him like we didn't put those expectations on him ninety nine percent of all md eight players unproved their shot he's in that one percent and we got to recognize that regardless that is that skill and talent is in his head it's in no it's practice no reason why we why we can run up and down the court while we don't see them taking jumps out because there's no footage of it there's no footage of him being the shooting jump jump shots or nay consistent basis see so i will world is rude joint effort is i don't think he's putting in less time in the gym then other mbh stars i think he's being less effective with his time we're blake griffin sit right here and say when he was remaking his jump shot it was embarrassing see he said he wanted to be in the gym bite outsell kevin o'connor is one of the smartest and be people out there is per two years said he thinks ben simmons is shooting literally with the wrong hand but whatever it is he is not he is not humbled himself to i'm going to work on what i'm terrible at what i'm uncomfortable and that way i want i think it's pride i don't think he's a point guard i think he's a guy who six ten very athletic lucan dribble the basketball if i was his coach i would take that out of his head i would put a true point guard owned the team and i would have him play on the box get rebounds get out in transition mb a great defender i would remove that myth oh he's a point guard oh he's the knicks magic johnson oh he's the next lebron james those comparisons have have killed him he is not magic johnson magic johnson to bury him in college and he'll ever be able to shoot he is not lebron james he's been simmons he's a force in the pain he's a force owned the defensive end he deserves the max contract but this salted he is eight point guard he's not dream on green starting point guard he's a point forward guy who's athletic can get all the move can distribute but he she is not doesn't have the skill why trained on made the most of what he's good at sierra point but but it and if this is the level of expectation forbid though if he could just shoot the way dream on shot this year it would end dream on wasn't good sure this year at an entire element to his game i mentioned he took twenty five shots outside of sixteen feet last season he made to that's impossible and so it's just it is it is buluan marianna vich has developed more of a soft touch from twelve feet been been simmons has they can't have it and now he does have the money rich paul and clutch sports said they'd go get him a max contract they got a max contract now with his own him to come back next year with some type of intermediate game before he developed back here first things first were joined by f s one nb alistair could be our you welcome back yet when he got pain we are happy to be we're happy to have him here let's say congratulations the cruise dot com read all the tea leaves had a couple of job opportunities could have gone to the west coast chase why in the bronx got a little birdie told her stadium in she signed a contract oh what the like i don't know of any of this is public now i don't care who's die if they no longer will do by journalism in all let's do it coups let's do it let's do it syracuse her longtime were happy for a great the show talking about osha when lifelong nets fan kyrie irving to make his free agency decision this summer brooklyn was the no brainer the six time all star took to his instagram to say quote home is where my heart is kyri will be paired alongside kevin durant and could be sidelined free year one as he recovers from his achilles injury no one will have a better seat to watch reaction unfold venues sarah so i will start with you sarah kyri fit in in brooklyn i think he's gonna be unexceptional fit and we can look at a multitude of things versus talent skill sets the way in which he is a an all star coming to a team that has such a solid core of young players here's our if it's me i'm most excited about the fact that kyrie is finally making decision of where he wants to be i know there's been a lot of dialogue about how he's gonna transition fit in his leadership his maturity the way things finished in boston but more anything i think for kyri it's about where does he wanna be until hearing him say home is where the heart is he wants to come back here he had a long time to think about it that's why i'm confident he will be such a good fit it gives us his his choice and kenny atkinson to me is a coach at a tremendous in understanding how to resonate with players hotter bring out the best out of help them fit in we've seen that with dangelo russell in what he did with him throughout the course of last season all of these players the development that he and his staff have brought them to i think this is gonna be an excellent fits for the entire organization organization but especially with kyri and you bring up a good point as far as it was his choice and i do remember the young kid last time kyrie irving had a choice he chose do and when i was a young kid had the choice to make and go anywhere in the country loss angeles going the usa going down the miami and i made the choice to stay at home in ohio 'cause people my high school coach showed me the value of me playing where people knew me and i understood the culture there but he also let me know to chris there's more distractions at home some of the people you're involved with in your hometown they don't have the best thing for you you have to be able to manage those things so even at that young age you need to realize that being close to home there's a certain set of things that are going to you're gonna have to deal with the other players aren't going to deal with so that's going to be on the board but the time at this time in his career it's just time to grow up it's time for him to be responsible for his own town this is one to things that are deemed to be very important in people's life number one being self aware understand really who you are what you are in your strength in your weaknesses in number two is if you're talented you are responsible so before that talent it is up to you to be a self starter it is up to you to put show body in the best situation you don't mind in the best situation we can get the best out of your town brooklyn has the great environment for him as far as the coaching staff in these younger players they don't need that much leadership a lot of times we take that leadership thing a little too far we need someone to be the leader own a daily basis be consistent and that's going to be the challenge for kyri because it's a great situation for him they're gonna play a style of basketball he's going to love planning the barclay center the way he dribbles the basketball the way basketball is talk here in new york city it's going to be fabulous to see the only thing is man i wish kevin durant with him the first time because i believe it would help his transition because kevin durant's makes basketball easier for those around if katie was out there katie and just popped his achilles i no concern about this whatsoever they only concerned they only to me legitimate concern the most legitimate concern is king kyri avoid the mistakes he made in boston the fact that he chose this place is it gives him a greater chance of avoiding those mistakes the fact that he made those mistakes there and hopefully learn from them gives him a better chance of avoiding those pitfalls but if this first year does not go the way it should and i'm not talking about win total things can happen in that regard but if it were some of the same things out of the locker room some of the same leadership intention in the all these issues that is an indictment on kyrie is on kyrie irving to remind everyone as you would say who she's been on the court and have that be the story exclusively he does not have to be all of a sudden go from the bad leadership experience in boston to all of a sudden the grand poobah leader by the way d andre jordan's gonna help with that as well it's one of those yes he's not just their 'cause he's buddies with katie in kyri he's he's a veteran he's season he understands what his role is going to be not only helping jared allen but helping the team as a whole but this is now up to kyrie irving to make the most still the situation that he's been working towards since he asked out of cleveland you're gonna be in a better winning situation then the one you were in cleveland with lebron coming off three straight finals having won a championship having just i thought the twenty seventeen dubs with the best kept secret that whole run he asked out of it he's now in a situation of his own choosing he has to make the most of it kind of just say look like he wasn't a pretty good winning situation in boston he happened to get hurt but that team took him to the eastern conference finals that was strong young talented team it's not like he went from cleveland with lebron to a team that had nothing on it and he ended up first year went well okay and then the second year when he was healthy it didn't quite go with them individually he had a good year and he was playing one of the best years of his career that i also think people are comparing a lot the roster in boston and just looking at it as talented young players is a famous brooklyn in it's not quite the same know his quote unquote backup or six manner the other point guard spencer dinwiddie on the team is one of the biggest recruiters of kyrie the come here they are close friends they play well together carousel avert is more he's coming back from injury last year but more established where he's at i feel like all the pieces of this team there's a different fit in a different chemistry then for example terry rozier who may be felt like he should have been starting other agendas right there is a clear pecking order the problem in brooklyn is part of it i go jackie macmullan wrote a great piece on this and she's is connected to the celtics six as anybody yes kyri owns a lot of it but still just brad stevens to end the problems in boston i'm sorry i'm into this in is in boston my apologies kyri owns a lot of it but sodas brad stevens and sodas jason tatum for is not seeming to care so much defensively and trying to be koby without kobi's one another generation ability to make impossible shot and sodas terry rozier for just waiting for this moment to get this contract not recognizing eight kyri slightly better than me spencer dinwiddie signed that contract extension while recruiting kyri knowing he's not gonna start knowing that he is is signing it to be like there there is a pecking order is important horton whether it's on television shows or teams were offices everyone needs to be know where they stand and be comfortable with where they stand which is one of the reasons why tyree teaming up with a superstar but this superstar the guy they came together intentionally not him jimmy butler being hey katie chose the next we've got a mac spot jimmy ones come here those are all reasons it should work which circle back to my point which i think is also your's if it doesn't think kyrie's got only it'll blow kyri in the trend in other words if there are no other factors but you know what i think what you said is a good point it would be so much better wearable cacique kyri in katie from day one as opposed to saying what kyri level sarah moving on quickly the warriors when they made the trade with the nets to acquire dangelo russell it was reporter they end up trading him in the near future but the latest report says the warriors heavy longterm term vision for dangelo alongside steph and clay series angela close with the nets the last two years you buying the worst lanta keep him with steph and clay i i'm not certain what the warriors long term plan is in i don't wanna speculate whether or not he is going to be there throughout the course of this four year max what they signed him to however i will say after watching him learning more and understanding him as a person as a player in his game i think he can fit alongside them i think more more than anything in before clay comes back i like the idea of him playing alongside steph curry and i think it's hard to not work well along one of the best shooters we've ever seen in the dnb however i think the way in which he could space the floor the way that he shoots the division and he brings a game and just taking some of the responsibility in load off currie because so many teams are going to game plan and strategize again stopping a guy like klay or a guy like that on the offensive end the tangible russia's contains change the collection of that because he's a guy that can put up buckets he can take over a game so i i think that will work well together however i i'm not sold on the fact that the warriors necessarily think this is their three men combination in the backwards throughout the duration of the next couple of seasons but i think in the short term it it's something that could work i think it does work on often tuban but basketball the game is played on ninety four feet in that other in this the first time in his career he's gonna have to guard the best perimeter guy they have 'cause that's the stuff corey effect to oh he gives the dribble the ball up but that you know she goes do you get the do what klay thompson has done without any excuses regardless of who that player was even if the player it was a swing a wing clay would build a guard that player but just imagine all those minutes in those first fourteen games he's gonna have to log look at the guards in the western conference oh it's gonna be not down drag out the guards in western conference significantly ignificant better than the guards in the eastern conference so i see they got no real protection and even when they get clay back look they don't have no size clay six five step six four dangelo six three six four five six but anyhow clean don't get no prize but plays like he's six foot so no room protection so just imagine that it's a different ballgame luckily defending the room jared allen one of the best we have an m v eight defending the room so this will be different this the dame is not just play don't often savan i believe it affects them and i believe because of that affect he can't be in their long term points were they going to pay step how much money is already set starting making forty plus he's locked up long term clay obviously he's got locked up won't turn thirty five plus dangelo is now gonna average twenty nine million over the course of this contract i i get why they did it i don't know if it's the right move because it was not a free it's not okay were just trading dangelo russell were loose katie anyways dangelo russell note and make this work you give away two first round picks hand andre iguodala and i understand and andre iguodala probably only as a couple productive years left in his days of being even a thirty minute the game guy or gone but over the last five years warrior warrior had the best plus minus not stuff not claiming it was andre widow who was the player they inserted in the lineup to create the initial death lineup with andre iguodala when they played the houston rockets the one team that really threatened them out west what starting lineup today go to with kevin durant obviously now when the team andre who has been the calming force on this team when you got a guy like boogie coming in there when they were friction intentioned throughout the season has certainly been at least one of these adult voices in the room and so they lose him they lose the ability to make some mid season moves because mbh we're rules about trading picks in consecutive years you're already don't have you're twenty twenty four pick another pick so it's not it's not cost for it but i get it they they they believe clay is going to be back for the playoffs they believe that they are not done competing for championships and they cannot ask steph curry for the first four games of next year to go do what he had to do at the end of was a game three against toronto in game four against toronto might have the game drunk two and three whatever it was when clay without and all of a sudden steph is out there by himself off and that's where i have seen dangelo russell we all have those who have watched the brooklyn nets more closely singlehandedly take over a game and so they expectation and i of all the respect in the world for andre igwe dolla but when it's time to sign with the postseason throughout the course of the season he paste himself until he got to the playoffs it so if what you need is a guy to come in and help carry the load throughout the course of the regular season and help you get that type of spot in the standings to compete in the playoffs dangelo russell to me is a guy that you insert do that then also denzel russell last year gotten himself into the best shape possible oh he's gonna need because he wants to play thirty six the thirty eight minutes a game in those first thirteen to fifteen games because they're gonna have to have some load management own steph please don't be unavailable in they're gonna have at least four or five minimum salary players owned a business so every time you go over to the biz steve kerr gonna look down there at imagery like anybody we need you can earn that twenty nine million an because they know they might be moving him they're less concerned about the workload on i mean played thirty minutes a game last year i i wanna make this clear and the warriors will be mad at me but they're always mattamy it's fine if they were not moving in the chase center they wouldn't have made this move if they were not moving into a new arena the next year i believe they would have said we lost k d were gonna take a year to retool we might move off dream on the year from now have steph clay real salary cap flexibility end or own picks to go try to do something i think this this is not just a basketball move for the business move with all those expensive seats they've already sold drawing make sure those fans watching a legitimate product a winning product until he gets back that caption

call with the judge was from maryland what what the heck is going on what is the division of the justice now well it appears that the department of justice has a hard time understanding its own position right now chris just yesterday the same lawyer was asked pointblank by judge hazel whether or not the decision to print the twenty twenty census forms without a citizenship question was quote final decision whether it was quote once and for all and whether it was not just a matter of while were printing it now but we might revisit it later and that same de oj lawyer said correct in response to all of those questions so as of yesterday you know that was it no citizenship question on the twenty twenty census today the department of justice appears to be trying to provide some wiggle room for the trump administration to come back where they different a determination later on down the road okay he worked on this case for a while we've had you on the show to discuss it there's a lot of lunch bunch of people litigated this her book about maryland in southern district new york what what is your reaction that tweet this morning well a a couple of things chris first it's outrageous the department of justice and be administration have represented multiple times that there can be no changes to the census this form after june thirtieth of this year and here we are after june thirtieth envy administration after having made that representation to multiple federal courts including the united states supreme court appears to be backtracking saying well actually maybe we do have the ability to change the census forms now were looking into it that's the first thing the second reason why it's outrageous is that the president is looking to make an end run around a decision by the united states supreme court now i i understand at the president likes his mogens at gulf but you don't get a mole again in the supreme court the supreme court struck down it rule but it was illegal to try to put this question on the twenty twenty census and no matter what reason they tried contrived now i don't think it'll make any difference well that's so that's where we are as part of the strike down the supreme court but the whole case was basically you were arguing the administration why about why it was trying to put the question but it was misrepresenting misrepresented before the court in congress and basically they did a so agreed just leave it to different courts and then the springboard a great they basically said you're lying to us about why you want this question and you can do that that's against the law for justice roberts said you know maybe go back and come up with another reason at this letter from the department of justice so they basically nod to furnishing another rationale like it seems to give away the game but there's some group of people who are gonna in in some other reason that's what they seem to suggest that they may try to do here but i wanna make clear what chief justice roberts opinion for the court said it said that the administration's reason for adding a citizenship question to the census what's contrived he doesn't say that you could come back with another reason that wasn't contrived and now would pass muster he said look federal law requires you to to honestly disclose the reasons for doing things that you do an here you contrived a reason end now would be administration saying we may try contrive a new reason i don't think that's going to satisfy chief justice roberts opinion i wanna take a step back from the details here and just you know you've been a litigator for a while you worked on a bunch of different cases you were legal defense fund for you show you have you ever i mean you but on the other side of the government have you ever seen something quite like what were seeing play out today no i mean it's remarkable the trial lawyer for the department of justice didn't even know what the government's position was adding at a hearing today i've i've never seen anything like it and i we should know but his boss and got on the phone disable the book were looking into this 'em it does seem now i mean what is your understanding what this means my rating is that you know how sometimes you're boss tells you do something you're like totally were on a box and then you just hope that he forgets about it after a long enough period like that basically moderating days position right now yours i it it's it's hard to say obviously the department of justice evaluated the supreme court's opinion when it came out last week they came in the court yesterday day on tuesday and said look the the drink is up games over 'em we concede and then we get this tweet from the president this morning and suddenly they're back in court in the deer jaylo air assigned to the case doesn't even know what the position of the government berman is well a by friday at two pm they'd better know because judge hazel you reference earlier ask the administration the comeback and by then either have a stipulation that they're not going to try it put the citizenship question back on the census or were gonna set a skit they're gonna set a schedule for further proceedings and you can bet that if they don't come back on friday and say unequivocally one hundred percent this question will not be on the twenty twenty census if they're going to be facing further proceedings in multiple courts including in new york right dale ho a thank you on this last minute making some time for us i appreciate it thanks so much joining our former secretary of labor rubberized and former republican congressman david jolly now and msnbc political analyst david we've got we've got tanks positioned outside the lincoln memorial for a hundred million dollar essentially trump campaign rally first top donors while he's contradicting his own deal jay amongst run roughshod over spring court like as we are celebrating the declaration of independence there is a little bit of a mad king feel to where we are right now oh certainly certainly in look he's contradicting his staff attorneys reality is i think bill bar told the president you do have a lane here to win this and look because i agree with everything you and they'll just discuss but i also would say and i hate to be the party i think the government the trump administration does have a narrow lane here have this reconsidered the case it was decided with decided and multiple parts they majority kind of moved around but if you threat it altogether what the majority of the justices ruled was it is not unconstitutional last the citizenship citizenship question it is not unreasonable however that reasonableness has certain constraints and in this case the department of commerce hasn't provided a concurrent irrational case for making they they citizenship question basis so if i'm the department of commerce and the department of justice i'd say hey look allow let's see opportunity to review brief this and and allow it to be a case of first impression because what the court also says under administrative law we have to provide deference to reasonable justification now that's a new york case in maryland ones different the maryland one is saying this is discriminatory and this was based on discriminatory actions that so their case today but chris i think if you're donald trump and bill bar which is very different than the deal jay staff career attorneys hey they're gonna say forget what the spring court said let's keep arguing see how far we could get but there is also something here robert about d m the way in which this entire thing has been undertaken and there's some parallels i think to the july fourth celebration in the sense in which the president contradictions on government minute every turn and which he sort of issues edicts internally that people will you can't do that we know they want it a big parade earlier the new wanna tanks rolling down the street and you can't do that you can't just make something up and tell the the represented to the court and there's a real question shit about like the degree to which he is being properly constrained in the degree to which he's pushing at the guard rails about what a democratic representative representative the people looks like well there's no constrained at all a great sense there's not even a trump administration there donald trump and as you pointed out i mean we are they be irony here is this is the night before independence day where we fought h high rent we declare your independence from what essentially what then i mad king we created the constitution customs checks and balances and separation of powers and that we have a mad king back again then it basically is defying all of the constitutional provision basically something his nose at the supreme court pushing me on will up as far as he possibly can and then some in terms of getting his way not allowing any congressional oversight and they basically saying to their house i'm not gonna give you anything i'm instructing everybody say no to appearing before you providing any documents i i mean what are we supposed to do i think that he is laying a credit good for impeachment actually yeah an end david you know what i keep returning to is is is these two ideas one that's sort of the strength of actual american democracy in the end the set up sort of constitutional provisions nuance traditions that under girded that ride deference to the courts a you know a viewing yourselves a representative representative of the people and then also democratic credit culture like i think the reason the people were upset about the tanks industries and the president's throwing himself some big military parade but it doesn't feel anathema to our american democratic culture is not the way we celebrate american constitutional democracy no that's right but i also understand the president's ignorance on all things western democratic liberalism when he took that question last week he thought the questioner was asking about san francisco california he did not he doesn't understand exactly the parameters that the secretary jerry rice speaking of speaking of the court so chris and an i gotta i gotta put a little bit of faith in court because frankly there's nowhere else to put on faith right now understanding this mary case judge roberts said listen will be deferential but that doesn't require rest of yanni's naive leave the judge in maryland tonight said hey i we twitter as well and then the ninth circuit just today we saw the appeals court say hey you can't use a military money the builder wall sorry mr president were not gonna let you do that so the president continues to push us as far they can but are korea are holding up to his pushing on the democratic norms david i'm so glad you said that because i think that's a crucial point even when i sat in that script thumbing his nose but i i met a sort of performers of li like robert the thing that i keep thinking of is the shooter has not drop in the moment the the sort of rubicon we have not crossed the president just flagrantly famously defying a court order right there is a question about there's always a sort of worry that that's the kind of thing he would be tempted to do when the muslim bama's struck down when you know now he's he's got his emergency funding for the wall enjoying he's he's hit up against the course time and time again and right now it seems to me that is a red line but i think even nancy pelosi on this the matter is he ira tax litigation is worried about him crossing were coming very close to that chris i mean by defying the supreme court in the way he did today now again i technically it's not strip defiance but when you had the justice department end the commerce department say one thing yesterday and then today on the basis of presidential tweets reverse themselves an also reversing himself is on what they said about eight time constraint then you actually are coming very close just saying to the supreme court i don't care if you were donald trump you're saying i simply don't care i'm gonna do what i wanna do and that is the comp once you cross that then basically you are in a dictatorship you're no longer in a democracy you know in david i i imagine today there was a meeting in that oval office there were there a knockdown drag out fight in idaho lofts i don't know what for sure i don't have the reporting that supports that but everything we've seen in the public outside suggested inside that oval office there already knockdown drag out fight about whether they were gonna defy supreme court or no i i agree with you and i on the way over that game was at the white house counsel or whether build are personally somebody and say i'm the president i do think we can win this but the secretaries earlier comment when we crossed that rubicon the house has to move to impeachment on this other part of the constitutional protection yes says for the congress's say this is unimpeachable moment in one way i think the president i think president trump is basically daring the congress daring the house of representatives the start impeachment this is part of a much larger drama you robert russian david jolly thank you both for making some time this evening xp white house refuses to give an explanation of the vice president's mysterious last minute trip cancellation reporter kind of get to the bottom of this fairly simple matter it would seem joined in two minutes hi it's katy tur wanna keep up with msnbc while you're on the go subscribe dizzy msnbc daily newsletter you'll get the best of what you've missed during this unprecedented era of news text msnbc two six six eight six six to subscribe one day after the vice president was suddenly pulled off a plane and rushed to the white house the mystery of mike pence is weird aboard a trip to new hampshire remains unsolved and the grand scheme of things it may not be a big deal calls for alarm at least that's what everyone working for the white house has said repeatedly but nothing fires up the reporters curiosity engine like officials not telling you the whole story joining our reporter who's been climbing it's the bottom this kobe ical which covers national policy and politics the washington post article did take me through what happened yesterday first right so it was a little strange so mike pence was scheduled to be a new hampshire to speak to pay on opioid recovery at a recovery center for people recovering from opioid addiction and so they were all there they were waiting for him and suddenly one of his advanced people gets on stage and says there's been an emergency he was on his way he's been called back to to the white house and so suddenly everyone's what happened in the speculation abounds ever what could possibly be national security event a personnel change a and the white house has refused to say a vice president pence says officers refused to say they push back on the idea that it wasn't emergency said it had nothing to do with national security had nothing to do with his health or the president's house and instead just said that there was something that the president's that the vice president's need it for back in the white house and several sources also told us that it might have been a security problem actually in new hampshire so were getting mixed messages on that front as well so they they said it wasn't someone being fired it wasn't emergency issue wasn't a national security issue wasn't a health problem mark short of who works in that office said when people what when when people know what happened week from now what he said so they just making you played twenty questions but not telling you what happened right and so what the white house is doing here is they're leaving the vacuum open for reporters and people on whether it's a felon so people had a lot of fun with it yesterday trying to guess at what could possibly be the reason why the vice president would have the canceling event at the very last minute while people were already in their states waiting for him but they they won't say and again the last few weeks will know in a few weeks thing is all very strange do you have this happen before like do you often find herself when you're covering the white house food sort of jobs information like this or this anomalous well camping event last minute with zero explanation is an anomaly that doesn't happen very often a with this white house there is tends to tends to be some secrecy around things until president trump tweets about it i think we're all expecting something to be on twitter today from the president explaining why the vice president needed to come back to washington are needed just stay in washington but that didn't happen either do are you confident but we will get it'll turn this or they're just gonna like look this going over everyone forgets right so when you say a couple of weeks short attention span in washington and there's as you know very well chris the news cycle moves fast clip and so there is a very good chance that we move on and forget about this in a few weeks but i'm gonna keep following up and see if we can finally get an answer to why the vice president couldn't i couldn't travel to new hampshire yesterday i mean i just wanna say like again my report my yesterday i watch this all play out on twitter i thought to myself oh i guess will will figure it out they'll tell us i know it's like well you're there's a story there clearly like all of your here's a story or not telling us right we could agree on that well that's what it felt like yesterday when they answer we were getting from everyone was in quotes something came up that's what the vice president's office kept saying something came up and so that is about is vegas you can get a when it comes to an explanation and so again like i said when you only give a big explanation you leave a massive vacuum for people to just get satirists fillmore imagine fantasize size what could possibly have happened yesterday all right well we still don't know what i would like to know somebody will get you back on your when you solve the mystery coli ago at thanks for joining us thanks k next day sending nude just that feeling detailing what it's like for those trapped inside trump's migrant detention centers congressman joaquin castro who released secretly recording video from inside one such facility joins me briefly interrupt your fourth of july barbecue planning to give you a readout on the health of the climate of are one in only earth at this year's major point if you had the gas just all the debris head what is the hottest june in recorded history what would you say if you get this past june in twenty nineteen you would be right hottest thing we've ever had in recorded history heat wave across europe in right now setting recor temperatures france record at its hottest day in history on friday a hundred and thirteen degrees a hundred and thirty degrees fahrenheit in one town in particular there been wildfires in spain in germany where he'd record's in poland the czech republic in switzerland as well reservoirs and lakes in india captured by satellite imagery are literally early shrinking including this reservoir shown here images from february in june of this year alone that's like five months and that is the main supply of drinking water for india's six largest city janai home to more than four million people in guadalajara mexico a freak storm dumped up to three feet of hail while greenland ice sheets are melting so fast and bringing with them so much sanders melting glaciers do there is no serious consideration being given to mining the san from the glaciers as a business opportunity because the world is low on sandwiches used in concrete increasingly the world is law and i it's but i guess that's another matter oh and there's a giant he no current alaska risking recordbreaking temperatures this week so that's the bad news the good news i guess is that all of this that we're seeing is actually penetrating the consciousness of americans despite the juvenile destructive lies of the president's the fossil fuel industry latest data from yale climate pulling project which is the gold standard on these things shows that more than half of americans think global warming is having their local community fifty seven percent think fossil fuel companies bear ida a moderate amount or a great deal of responsibility for climate is right now climbing up the priority priority list of democratic primary voters in tellingly the president himself is somewhat composter asleep willing to give a speech on monday about quote america's environmental leadership that is obviously in ridiculous undertaking fresh fresh from the gene johnny in winston usa once again reviews just sign onto the climate portion of the joint communique but what's fascinating about it is if he even feels the need to make every effort at a speech at all public opinion on this question is on the right side and is moving in exit early in an even better direction and the more pressure politicians feel act with historic urgency required the better so if you care about this and don't let up they want about the fake news long before became a thing the donald trump dishonestly calls the real news is it a real issue and social media you know is a huge fake news offender on facebook donald trump's reelection campaign reporter jed leg of popular information recently identified hundreds of trump twenty twenty campaign ads that were false running afoul of facebook's rules against misleading or false contact ads range from their standard craft seeking the manipulate people get email addresses and donations the outright lies misleading the public on hot button issues like the second amendment baseball down many it'd be official trump campaign paint ads the same way they take down other false or obscene content but the harm is mostly done by that point now trump's got some new ads featuring real people in america windows endorsed by resident trump and his family envy administration are in our prayers strengthened with god almighty god bless now if you watch that and thought does thomas from washington look like a guy praying that hartford donald trump you're not alone people are asking the same question about tracy from florida who enjoys donald trump and long walks on the beach and that's because people in the trump ads are stuck video models of course available merges on ice dot dot com for about eight about a hundred and eighty bucks a pop as he teeny tires claimer the bottom of the notes there actor portrayal of actual testimonies you could decide for yourself if even that is true so that's what the fake news arm of the trump campaign is enough to tomorrow we get the check in with misappropriation of military resources in taxpayer dollars arm of the trump campaign the trump in july is thing to in sixty seconds washington dc is getting ready for the trump of july celebration tomorrow the president's getting his big wish for tanks on display in the capital they were brought in by truck and train overnight some having removed by crane after peter appears they could not quite clear an overpass there will be hundreds of service members and the capitol not but their families but holiday demand the tanks and participate in the festivities mother jones obtained a car these soldiers are getting the pentagon with instructions on what to say if their approach by the media here's one suggested quote i am proud of my job and my vehicle slash tank i am glare just glad the share my experience with american people we know there will be flyover showing off our military might in the sky as well including me f twenty two fighter b two stealth bomber in navy blue angels plus trump wants the air force one playing one of air force one planes to zoom overhead justice he takes the stage at the lincoln memorial and don't forget be projected image from the nineteen sixty nine apollo eleven moon mission but he wants washington monument because the space force all this other guy and give a campaign style speech on the public dime on the fourth of july but there is one thing about tomorrow the donald trump cannot hijack we've already declared tomorrow a storm team four weather alert day we wouldn't you be prepared and weddings checkout you're fireworks forecast over the next few hours as you're maybe setting up down there eighty nine degrees at seven pm there's an eighty percent chance for storms out about seventy and tomorrow and that's going to be area why did we say storms we mean some very heavy rainfall and some strong gusty winds we have more details and i of what life is like inside the trump detention centers this comes on the heels of a report released yesterday by the department of homeland security's own inspector general so basically from inside the trump administration highlighting extreme overcrowding in a lack of food and hygiene gene in facilities along the rio grande valley today eighty atlantic spoke the doctor got the chance to evaluate dozens of detaining children at the mckellen border patrol facility recollections are very hard to reid and heartbreaking i'll quote year any fifteen month old baby with a fever had been in detention for three weeks his uncle i fed him from the same dirty formula bottle for days on end until the guard replaced it with a new one the doctor later noted that denying the quote ability to wash their infants bottle is unconscionable and could be considered intentional mental and emotional abuse for the doctors visits the uncle astra medical attention because of baby weasing in response a guard at touched the baby's head with his hand and concluded he's not hot doctor later noted that access to medical professionals denied american academy of pediatrics released these pictures today drawings made by ten and eleven year old children in macallan recently released from customs and border protection custody depicting themselves behind bars and in cages we have almost no video oh what if like in these detention camps except for this which were shocked by texas democratic congressman joaquin castro who smuggled some sort of recording vice into a facility bility on monday as part of congressional delegation even though border patrol confiscated members phones schmidt castro joins me now why did you think it was important to defy their worst confiscate your phones to get a footage from inside because the country has to see what's being done in their name and also because i don't believe that the executive branch has authority to tell the legislative branch with oversight power over these federal federal agencies that we can't document what's going on inside side and we asked the border patrol chief and as an attorney that was their very specifically the site the law they were relying on to keep us from documenting what what's going on and they couldn't find a single law so at that point chris consider their request a courtesy and there's too much at stake for me to abide by courtesy at this point the funny show their shows women who have appear you know they're not they're obviously not young young children and their their their adult women 'em on the floor there in that sell it looks like a jail cell what's striking to me is what you guys saw they knew you were coming this is not a spot visit is that correct that's right but they didn't think we would get into that sell the reason that we got ended outsell is because alexandro cossio cortez insisted that she be able to talk to those women and basically you know you know push away in there and so when we got in there the women started telling us their stories some of them fifty days there in detention some separated from their kids some said they've not been given their medications the sink was not working there is no running water so when these women use the restroom there is no way for them to wash their hands so what we saw in that cell it's consistent with what the pediatricians have said about other facilities i also want next door and visited people at another facility there is a woman who is in the early stages of pregnancy an in that facility there is a sink was working there were paper cubs were being reused by the people in that sell a so these conditions are deplorable a human rights are being neglected and the president had this to say if illegal immigrants are unhappy with the conditions in the quickly built around fitted detention centers just tell them not to come all problem solve what do you think of that well a first these are mostly asylumseekers they have the legal right to petition for asylum in the united states just as anybody across the world has the right to do that in any nation and also it shows you that what we already know that the presidency's migrants as subhuman he dehumanizes them for political purposes and politically gain and there is reporting other supporting republican recover earlier in the week about a a facebook group with thousands of members in cbp that posted offensive racist sexist derogatory means i'm really some disturbing stuff on were reporting tonight from politico that actually dhs officials were alerted to this some admitted apparently anonymously the they had been monitoring it per quote intelligence and that this would do it was notified to see bp as far back as twenty sixteen which is under the obama administration administration what does that say to you about the culture of cb p c b p is broken and they have it culture problem at this point the bad has overtaken the good and there are good agents who were trying to do their best to take care of the people in their custody but they're overwhelmed by the system and they're also under cut by the kinds of agents who were making those violent vulgar comments and right now there is no system in place within cbp that can really hold agents accountable when they do wrong and that's what we're seeing is it these people continue to exist in thrive in an organization that doesn't hold people properly accountable i hit my final thing here about accountability i mean we're watching this were getting this information from t i g report there are minors being held in direct violation of a court order under flora's for more than seventy two hours there folks in a you know a sub human condition spur forty fifty days what's it's being done like in this still gonna go on what other remedies or courses available to you to us citizens to make sure this stops really chris this is this is gonna take all americans have good conscience to speak up and take action to change this a because you have a precedent anna senate majority leader mitch mcconnell the quite honestly instead unsympathetic to these people and what we gotta do a few things we have to not just pump more money into a broken system we we have to do things to raise the standards of care we have to do everything we can to move people through the process quicker so that you place people faster with sponsors for example a and then finally in terms of the long term we've invest more in the northern triangle countries in central america so that people have opportunity in safety in their own countries and then don't feel like they need a come here to seek asylum just final question though i know very short term you look at these emergency disaster situation situations but i think would be considered human rights abuses is there anything in the law right now the requires any reporting of metrics were conditions to congress by cbp right now so that you will know in two weeks or three weeks the this situation has gotten better there is some language that's required there is language any appropriations bill that requires a different kind of reporting but it's hard to match the reporting it comes back to the congress with what's actually going on in the facilities it's clear at this point that we also can't always trust what is being told to us by the agency and then when you try to go and independently verify that you know we not only got and instruction and we couldn't take photographs we also initially got it instruction that we were not allowed to speak to anybody there was being detained so lease folks wanna police themselves and the system is totally broken congressman joaquin castro thank you for sharing that thank you still trump's democratic opponent be able to fundraise the president's state of the race next starting to get a better picture of these so called money primary in the democratic race the fundraising quarter of this week some of the candidates numbers are starting to starting to trickle in today former vice president joe biden announced he raised twenty one point five million dollars in the second quarter with an average donation of forty nine dollars senator bernie sanders rate eighteen million dollars with an average nation of eighteen dollars leading the field so far mayor pete buddha judge to unlike senator sanders and senator elizabeth warren has not first one big high dollar fundraisers info lers and has been rewarded mightily for from donors mayor buddha judge raised nearly twenty five million dollars in the second quarter with an average donation of forty seven dollars but of course all that pales in comparison the president and he earns he's enormous one hundred and five million dollar hall and the corner his reelection campaign now boasting they're going to raise one one billion dollars which seems plausible nursed right now open in pressing question about whether the democratic nominee is going to be a gun and joined now by marina vino national politically rector individual an organization of progressive groups dan pfeiffer former can make communications director present obama host the podcast pod save america they let me start with someone who's worked on a number of presidential races on their mind ministration had a sort of obama campaign at at two ways it had a lot of small dollar and it also did high dollar fundraisers we know biden in buddha judge you're doing both sanders in warren have sort of force warn the high dollar a fundraiser what do you make of this picture well i think first if you just look at mayor pete's number it's astounding right you here's kennedy who is been steadily in fifth place in the polls this entire time and he is outrace a former vice president andy runner up in the two thousand sixteen election so he has found a way they've put this together in a very impressive way overall i think the field is done pretty well it's a very good number for standards of very good number of irvine directly considering the fact that he got into the race a couple of weeks into this corner well but there's a question maria i think people have about whether small dollar i mean there is a powerful small dollar movement among among democrats we saw in twenty eighteen we've seen it with various candidates and i guess the question you is do you think there's enough desire consciousness mobilization organization to use small dollars to produce the kind of money that is going to be necessary it take on a president's plus a super pac absolutely i think small dollar fundraising is a really powerful tool not just for base buildings movement building but also for being a huge catalyst in a force for these candidates and we're gonna see that increasingly it is a good indicator of who's picking up steam and who's picking up support across the coalition of voters and so i think absolutely it's a good indicator 'em and when you look at some of the movement including our own individual that have really emerged in the post trump era amount of fundraising that we've seen these activists is tremendous so i think that's gonna be one way that they support but i think there will be several ways that they support can it be on money well and there's you know them to to the back the buddha judge right 'cause he's a fascinating figure here it's a crazy number to raise and he's pulling it for five percent like there seems i never encountered canada i don't think ever in the time i've been covering modern politics were there is that gap between being number one in fundraising and five in the polls it's it's it is astounding in it i think it speaks to the fact that he had he is worked his tail off to do this he is not here in san francisco he is out here in silicon valley feels like every couple of days raising money he's tapped in some parts of the party there were other cancer they're not being aggressive around with tech executives and others but he is he's been able to to have both they robust online fundraising based like obama in two thousand and eight ends in real appeal among the high donor crowd including some of the bama bundlers from two thousand twelve so what he's gonna successful now he's going to have to be able to a massive success shows and moving in the polls in withstand scrutiny on the money on who he raise that money from yes we've already seen signals from sanders campaign they're they're gonna raise that issue well maria there's one question i keep seeing lurking over this which is whether we should be thinking about fundraising as sort of his ear osama situation where there's like a fix pie indifferent people taking places or whether there's something additive regenerative and i think that really relates to as we move for the general downstate racist state reparations state senate races congressional races senate races as someone who's very close to groceries the party what you feeling about that i think there's plenty of money to go around and actually if you look at it webs survey i would say over half of our respondents picked forty five canada but they're looking at still and so there's the field is still wide open people are still really eager to get to know everyone both at the top of the ticket down ballot and so i i would say like folks are gonna give generously the cycle they're gonna do anything they can to beat donald trump and so i don't think we should play into this sort of zero sum game and i think we should be really excited by this historic field and their potential continue to raise a ton of money down on the first campaign look like it's sort of gone wobbly abed bed which is former colorado governor hickenlooper a that he basically senior staffer a head ask the governor drop out these had a bunch of people leave after very weak fundraising numbers it's a reminder that like at a certain point you gotta keep putting fuel in the car and you can't sustain twentyfive percent field indefinitely right i mean they're working at the field is going to window eventuated because there is not enough money for somebody who's campaigns to run credible racist and if they are people who wanna actually united states and they can't reach their financial and political pressure on you need to do that then they will drop out some of these folks just wanna be on the debate stage and make a point and you can do that
