Mixed reviews for administration's handling of coronavirus

"All right so last night. President trump basically said to corona virus. I'm in control here. And Corona Virus said to you in control so things are not going great out there with the grown of the big problem of course continued lack of information. The testing kits were not widely available. We just don't know how many people in the United States actually have corona virus. We don't even know how many people abroad have for a virus. What we do know is that there's certain measures that have been taken the harsher the measure Z teams. The faster the Groenemeyer is brought under control. This is true in Wuhan. It was true in South Korea where you've seen a significant bending of the curve. That is what people are calling it. The curve being the number of people who are infected and then number of people who are dying this obviously means that people are now getting increasingly serious and cautious about going to wide scale public events. Now that if you're young and you go to a big public event you're GonNa but that if you go to a public event you may become a carrier or transmitter to somebody who is more vulnerable. Somebody with a pre existing condition. Somebody who doesn't have a strong IMMUNE SYSTEM. Cancer Patients Leukemia patients. People who are older. All of this is is deeply frightening. I mean there's no other way to put it. You look the news. It's hard not to be scared and the reason it's hard not to be scared as when you see Italy shutting down every public space like all public spaces except for grocery stores and pharmacies. No Church services going on in Italy no stores open in Italy when you see Israel shutting down not only all travel all public events over one hundred people when you see people trying to shut down public events in Washington state. Obviously all of this is predicated on the notion. That Corona virus is easily transmitted which as far as we know is true and also that corona virus is a lot more deadly than the flu which is far as we know is also true but it does differ based on age bracket. It is irresponsible reporting to suggest that every person who who takes coup gets corona virus is equally likely to die of it or experienced significant ramifications from corona virus the younger. You are the better chance you have of recovering from this end. Even if you're older the majority of the people who are getting it are indeed recovering. The death rates of even for people eighty yes. It's like fifteen percent which so unbelievably high really frightening. But that means that eighty five percent of the people getting it above the lady are recovering from Corona virus. But it is lack of information that of course is scaring the living. Hell out of everyone. And this means that president trump stepping into the fray and presenting. Some sort of plan here was absolutely necessary. President trump did that last night. He got some mixed reviews. Let's put it that way but first let's get to the actual news yesterday. The World Health Organization declared a pandemic of virus disease covered nineteen according to the Washington Post the WHO declared corona virus abandoning reflecting alarm. The countries aren't working quickly and aggressively enough to fight. Disease Causes Cove in nineteen. They're deeply concerned by both the alarming levels of spreading severity and the alarming levels of an action said W. H. O. Director General throws at Hunnam Aces for weeks now the WHO has hesitated to make pandemic declaration for fear of inciting panic or prompting some countries flag in their efforts. Even though many epidemiologist believed the corona virus had already spread to pandemic levels but on Wednesday. Tether rose noted the widespread scale of the outbreak. Said there are now more than one hundred eighteen thousand cases in one hundred and fourteen countries over. Four Thousand People. Forty two hundred ninety one at that count have lost their lives in the days and weeks ahead. We expect to see the number of coronavirus cases. The number of deaths and the number of affected countries climb even higher tomorrow said that the pandemic is not a word to be used lightly or carelessly. It's award. Misuse can cause unreasonable. Fear or unjustified acceptance that the fight is over leading to unnecessary suffering and death the. Who's announcement does not trigger any new funding protocols or regulations? Basically scares the living. Hell out of everyone is what you get from that. It's not that anybody then gets released. Funding thanks to like if you declared a national emergency in the United States that gives additional powers to the government. That's not the same thing for the. Who when they declare pandemic it. Basically has the same effect as Michael Scott going to the center of the office and shouting. I declare bankruptcy like okay. Thanks Super Helpful okay. Would that said the NBA has now put it season on hold after one player tested positive for corona virus are now finding out that a second player has tested positive for run virus according to the La Times the NBA on Wednesday indefinitely. Suspended the two thousand Nineteen Two Thousand Twenty season after Utah Jazz Center Rudy. Gobert tested positive for cove in nineteen. Just a couple of days ago. Gobert who apparently was coughing and locker room. He jokingly went around He. Pressroom started touching everything. Like as a joke. Started touching all the microphones. He started touching all the reporters stuff while turns out dude head Corona virus and now it turns out that another player has come down with corona virus as well according to the League. The test result was reported. Shortly prior to the tip off of tonight's game between the Jazz Oklahoma City thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena. At that time tonight's game was cancelled the effective player was not in the arena the NBA suspending game. Play following the conclusion of tonight's schedule of games until further notice or now living inside space. Jam I if you remember the plot of space jam. All the players refused to play because they are afraid that they're going to be infected with the alien viruses locker room the NBA will use this hiatus to determine next steps moving forward in regards to the corona virus. Pandemic Mark Cuban. Who's the owner of the Dallas Mavericks? He came out yesterday. He said that he's going to try and find a way to continue paying his hourly employees which is really cool thing to do. Obviously the Lakers and clippers were considered favorites for the championship. Lakers landed in China for exhibition games. After an international incident. This was just. The end of last year Lakers employees are being advised to work from home for the foreseeable future. The clippers will not practice on Thursday. Meanwhile we're now finding out the Tom. Hanks Rita Wilson have tested positive for corona virus which is always good news and by good news. I mean just ridiculous in horrifying so even celebrities. Scarola CORONA virus falls on the on the blessed and the un-blessed alike as first reported by deadline the Academy Award winner and his wife or animal -cation in Australia for pre production of a film on Elvis Presley when they began experiencing symptoms hanks wrote in a statement first published by deadline and later share to twitter. We felt a bit tired like we had colds. That's body aches. Read ahead some shows that came and went slight fevers to to play things right as needed in the world right now tested for corona virus and were found to be positive thanks went on to say that he and Wilson will be tested observed an isolated for as long as public health and safety require a meanwhile as I mentioned we. We now have a breaking piece of news that Jazz Star Donovan. Mitchell has tested positive for virus as well jazz players privately say that Rudy Gobert had been clicked careless in the locker room touching other players and their belongings as well. So that's scary stuff. Reuters reporting the president airboats narrow of Brazil is being tested for Corona virus. We know the Health Minister of Great Britain has corona virus. So this thing is it is widespread it is. It is hitting a lot of people. It would not be surprising to me that if universal testing were available in the United States hundreds of thousands of people would have grown a virus. Already that would not be shocking at all the Brazilian government spokesman who met with President Trump last weekend and was pictured standing next to him has now tested positive for corona virus as well so you would hope that the president of the United States has been tested for corona virus. The Brazilian President mentioned is now being monitored for viruses scheduled for the week was cancelled. Both were with Donald Trump and Mike pence last Saturday at mar-a-lago as well so all of this is All of this is deeply disturbing. We're going to get to more of this in just one second and president trump's response which as I say is receiving at best mixed reviews and frankly those mixed reviews are

"Up with his rock and roll lifestyle. She didn't really want to take with the upper downers he gave her but to reject the pills would be to reject Elvis himself. He wouldn't slowdown for anyone the prospect of going through the day without taking pills no longer even entered. Elvis's mind he thought they were harmless and often told Priscilla Priscilla that his own doctor had prescribed them he promised her they were nothing like hard drugs. Priscilla eventually took the pills but it was still difficult for a young woman to navigate the bizarre Hermetic World Elvis had created. She was constantly surrounded by older men who didn't know oh how to interact with her. Elvis got jealous when anyone talked to Priscilla at all also his entourage mostly ignored her meanwhile elvis gradually gradually became more distant. He still disliked his own musical output and was getting bored with the paint by numbers films he was cast in. He fought his internal emptiness by spending impulsively he bought motorcycles custom motorhomes anything to keep him distracted. Elvis also made powerful friends eventually his charm and lasting influence one over even the most reluctant including in conservative government figures but all the diversions and contacts in the world ultimately didn't lessen the burdens of his Personal Life Priscilla Assila now twenty two years old was getting more assertive and was adamant that they should get married soon. Elvis loved Priscilla but also uh-huh liked being a bachelor all this time he had continued to date women behind Priscilla's back but finally he bowed to the pressure it proposed just before Christmas in nineteen sixty six on fortunately the months leading up to the wedding not exactly happy ones. Elvis's Elvis's drug issues and feelings of emptiness started a spillover from his personal life into his professional one up until nineteen sixty sixty seven that had never been a problem no matter how disappointed he was and whatever film he was in Elvis always behaved himself onset but all of a sudden he felt like a laughing stock he couldn't bring himself to get out of bed and taken to binge eating and drug consumption Russian to get himself through the days he was overweight strung out and his hair looks terrible like a wig with Elvis's prophets now endanger. You're the colonel finally stepped in he summoned the members of Elvis crew and gave them an earful he even fired a few of them and and Elvis didn't defend any of his companions after that confrontation Elvis return to keeping his obligations he he married Priscilla in May of nineteen sixty seven. They had a month long honeymoon and the two grew closer than they had ever been before. Priscilla's enlist bliss was interrupted when she learned she was pregnant. She became terrified. The pregnancy would make her undesirable to Elvis Elvis for his part was euphoric at the news. He couldn't wait for his daughter's birth. On February first of nineteen sixty eight Lisa Marie Presley Ashley was born but after the baby's birth Priscilla's worst fears were confirmed. Elvis claimed it was impossible for him to be sexually attracted to a woman with a child no matter what she did. He refused to become intimate with Priscilla for months after their daughter was born. The rejection lowered her self esteem considerably by nineteen sixty nine her relationship with Elvis had grown incredibly distant then Dan that year he embarked on a comeback tour after a successful TV special with Elvis away from home touring their elation ships soured even more priscilla new Elvis had been cheating on her for years and she was desperate for emotional support in one thousand nine hundred seventy one she had an affair with a karate teacher named Mike Stone the affair continued for months until Priscilla officially the filed for separation in February of Nineteen seventy-two learning about the affair TUC Elvis by surprise for a while he genuinely couldn't understand what had pushed priscilla away after this Elvis became even more depressed and fell deeper into drug drug addiction in binge eating in the following four years he continued to tour but his professionalism was long gone on he didn't treat anyone well except for his doctors who injected him with special cocktails of uppers downers that allowed him to get through the day eventually he needed the injections multiple times a day just to be able to get up and move around his medical problems became severe and he secluded himself in his bedroom in nineteen seventy seven at the age of forty two he saw only his doctors and the occasional girlfriend but somewhat incomprehensibly despite his deteriorating health. Elvis still thought he could make another return to public life. He planned to take take a plane to Memphis and begin another tour on August Sixteenth nineteen seventy seven the tour would never come to pass in retrospect introspects. It seems bizarre that if Elvis's health really was so dire he would commit to a major tour even so that's apparently what he did did that morning. He woke up dazed and aching like he always did he had taken to shots of drug cocktail before noon which gave him the energy to walk around but after only a few hours he needed a third injection then told his girlfriend. Ginger Alden that he was going into the bathroom to read he didn't come back out and after a while ginger went to check on him. She found him on the floor in a puddle of his own vomit. A doctor was called but there was nothing he could do. Elvis was dead. He passed away with a clogged colon and overworked heart and fourteen different drugs in his system but for some this wasn't the end of the story soon after Elvis supposedly died and in the decade since legions of fans have claimed to have spot of the king all around the United States and even in movies. Our first conspiracy claims that Elvis faked his own death as a way to escape his fame. It's undeniable that his popularity was at the root of many of his personal problems. Could he have arranged the overdose as it's a cover up and flown to Bermuda to get away from it all our second conspiracy targets a specific man still alive today who bears a striking striking physical and musical resemblance to the star instead of going to promote a could elvis instead have retreated to Arkansas given a strong Christian faith might start a new life as a pastor. Our third conspiracy focuses on a different elvis assiting adherence often believe Elvis has been secretly communicating the fact that he's alive to fans since his supposed death. Could one of these clues have shown up in the Nineteen Ninety family movie home alone could Elvis be the mysterious extra who was featured in a scene scene at the beginning of the film throughout his life. Elvis constantly surprised his critics. His talents charisma and work ethic led him to dominate the music industry in ways. No one thought possible. His fame may have caused his collapse but if there's one thing Elvis proved during his life it was that he should never be underestimated whether or not he continues to live on his is legacy endures. thanks for tuning into conspiracy sheet series.

"His fellow soldiers he also frequently did favors for his friends ends and acquaintances but even Elvis couldn't handle everything after all he was still living in a foreign country trying to grieve his mother managing managing his absentee music career and performing his duties as a GI. It was all too much but one day and while practicing army maneuvers at the Bay's he received the solution to his chronic exhaustion a sergeant noticed that he was on the verge of collapse and offered him an amphetamine tablet to stay alert Elvis's decision to take the pill would have repercussions for the rest most of his life at the time the side effects of amphetamine pills were not well understood. Many in the medical community considered them to be miracle miracle drugs the sergeant told Elvis the drugs gave him boundless energy and the only side effect was dry mouth. He also said they worked to suppresses appetite which one elvis over it always been image conscious and like his mother worried about his weight. It didn't take long for the pills to become part of Elvis's everyday routine. They allowed him to stamp as late as he needed to and still have energy despair on the weekends hands. They helped him stay cheerful when interacting with fans in energetic during army exercises he convinced many other soldiers to try them them and insisted his friends read and Lamar get in on the action as well. This was just another requirement of the job. Being a member of Elvis's. Mrs Entourage meant you did what he wanted. You liked what he liked and you didn't ask questions thanks to his endless money and fame Elvis. Louis seemed capable of anything he got a generous prescription for amphetamines from a doctor and took advantage of every special privilege. He was offered by the army a month. After his mother's death. Elvis finally felt that he had retaken some control over his life. He had a place that felt like home home. In West Germany with his secretary Elizabeth he had a close female companion to supplement his weekly nightstands. The only thing he lacked act was the deep emotional support his mother had provided for this. He turned back to the colonel. Elvis wrote to his manager almost daily. Eh the colonel sent back messages of support and kept Elvis in the loop about his business dealings not that Elvis was particularly interested in in the details of the business as long as he had some money and fans. He didn't mind leaving the rest of it to Colonel Parker. The colonel took this tacit tacit encouragement and ran with it. He made it his mission to keep Elvis happy. While he was deployed he sent Elvis pep talks by mail where he told hold in the entire country was proud of him for doing his duty. As a soldier he spent hours on end promising Elvis that his career still had life in it and and making the arrangements to keep his fans content he spent so much time Elvis that he didn't take on a single other client even while Elvis this was abroad thanks to his unflagging efforts. Elvis began to think of the colonel as the one person he could truly rely on on the other hand and he argued with members of his entourage who thought he was becoming an arrogant big shot by nineteen fifty nine a year and to Elvis's two year deployment his friend Red West had reached a breaking point he felt elvis through his fame around to get special treatment and didn't like how the Fateh means made Elvis loud and excitable at all hours of the night read tried to confront Elvis about his behavior behavior but the discussion only devolved into a shouting match in May read went back home to the states he was quickly replaced by another one of Elvis's friends cliff leaves. Elvis wasn't short on potential dates either. One of the main duties of his entourage had become come to recruit women around town to go on dates with him in August of nineteen fifty nine fourteen year old Priscilla Bo. You found herself on a date with the now twenty four year old. Elvis that evening. She came to a party at a house. Elvis was renting in Friedberg Friedberg. Germany has was usual on his first dates. Elvis sang for her and introduced her to his kindly grandmother. He was surprised just by her young age but wasn't deterred. He treated her courteously and at the end of the night the astor come back again on their second date. Elvis spent some time with her in his bedroom. Priscilla was nervous but it wasn't what she expected. Elvis just sat next to her on the bed and todd with her for a few hours not long after that. The pair started seeing each other almost every night. Elvis's friends plans were perplexed at his intense interest in Priscilla. It didn't normally get that close with women. Elvis didn't have much of an explanation other other than to say that he found her beautiful and unusually easy to talk to eventually they started sleeping in the same bed together though according to Priscilla shila she and Elvis did not have intercourse their time together grew even more intense but it was also short lived. Elvis's deployment mint ended in nineteen sixty and he left Priscilla in West Germany while he went on a comeback tour in the United States. Priscilla assumed she would never see him again but Elvis promised they would have a future together but that was still a far off dream in the short term. Elvis was concerned with getting back home. When his plane landed back in the states he received a screaming reception from thousands of fans at the airport? He could hardly believe it. The colonel's plan had worked. Elvis was back and bigger than ever but soon soon he would learn that the higher he climbed the further. He had to fall up next. Elvis yields to pressure on all sides leading to a growing internal emptiness now back to the story in nineteen sixty twenty five year old. Elvis Presley returned home after a two year military re-deployment in Germany. He worried that his career would be over after being away for so long but thanks to the expert management of Colonel Parker. He came back more popular than ever since songs had been slowly eat out over the course of Elvis's hiatus. The fans clamored for more Elvis gave them what they want it but after his comeback he shifted his primary focus to acting for the next several several years he starred in a spate of popular films including G. I blues and Blue Hawaii none required very deep performances but most performed performed well at the box office at first Elvis had ambitions of pursuing some big dramatic rules but is more serious movies did not outsell as well. Meanwhile the colonel was always in his ear persuading him to go back to fluffier more formulaic parts but just because the the film's weren't emotionally demanding didn't mean elvis wasn't working hard. He was onset twelve hours a day and toured in between roles he always always showed up on time and did his job as well as he could with a non stop traveling and performing wore him out the only thing that sustained him where the amphetamines by now he was taking them constantly. Unfortunately the non stop drug intake made Elvis irritable and his temper grew shorter than ever before once on a road trip with his entourage. Another driver flipped Elvis off as he drove by hi. Elvis responded by commanding his driver to speed up when they caught up to the guy who and flipped them off. Elvis pulled a derringer pistol from his jacket jacket and waved it around the rest of his entourage had to rush to calm him down there was genuine tension in the car until Elvis finally only holstered the weapon and smiled as if nothing had happened another temper flare occurred while Elvis was playing pool with his friends sunny a woman who was visiting wanted to leave the house but Sonny's car was blocking her in. She has sunny if he could move his car and Elvis told her to ask someone else since they were in the middle of a game on the woman didn't know anyone else in the house so after few minutes of wondering what to do she asked Sonny Sunny again. Elvis suddenly exploded in rage and through his pool stick at her meanwhile. The state of his professional career wasn't exactly helping his mood at the colonel's directive he was only performing songs to accompany movies because these songs these were the most profitable and easy to arrange for years these soundtracks comprised almost all of Elvis's musical output. Elvis didn't particularly Kalihi like the generic work but he was convinced by the kernel that it was what his fans wanted after all it continued to sell well. Elvis ultimately allowed himself to be convinced that his job was to make music that sold as much as possible but that left him searching coaching for fulfilment in other areas since he had returned to the US in one thousand nine hundred sixty he had been writing regular letters to Priscilla in nineteen nineteen sixty two at the age of twenty. Seven Elvis decided that since Priscilla was almost eighteen the time was right for him to see her again he flew the now seventeen year old out to Memphis from Germany twice that year all this time he had been thinking about her in his lowest moments and worked hard to impress her when she visited for her part. Priscilla was still head over heels for him. Elvis said groomed her to see him as a kind of mythical figure and she was determined to do whatever it took to stay in his good graces. Elvis gave her in phetamine so she could keep up with him and his entourage in sleeping pill so she could come back down again one day. She was feeling unnaturally. The anxious Elvis gave her two big red pills and said they were to calm her down. She slept for two straight days. When she awoke doc. She found a terrified Elvis standing over her. He thought she was in a coma and was going to die. Priscilla dealt with the situation with poise as always no matter the obstacle. She was determined to be what Elvis wanted. After her second visit Elvis this negotiated with her parents who finally agreed to allow her to finish her senior year of High School in Memphis but Priscilla's new life in Tennessee was not exactly a dream come true. Elvis was out of the state shooting movies for most of the time she she lived at the graceland mansion with Elvis's father and his wife. They instituted strict rules which she resented. She hated the fact that she we still had to go to school to. She was always waiting for Elvis to come back home. When he was back. Things got better. She was allowed a lot more freedom and Elvis doted on her. She and Elvis slept in the same bed every night but priscilla claimed they still didn't have sex. Wchs Elvis was waiting for the right time. He said he wanted it to be perfect. He also wanted her to be perfect. As always always Elvis sought devotion and loyalty over everything else he consciously shaped Priscilla into the kind of woman he wanted her to be he bought her fancy clothes and gave her directions to improve her looks he hired a dentist to put porcelain over her teeth and dyed her hair black so that it looked more like his own he also subjected her two hours of lectures on how his ideal woman should behave the but above all the biggest thing he demanded of Priscilla was that she keep.

"King is about Elvis Presley. But it's hardly a straightforward biography. It's more of a cinematic quilt enter cutting archival footage with modern day interviews, many of which were conducted with musicians in the back seat of Elvis's Rolls, Royce, while the filmmakers, drove it across the country. Down drag Rena. The documentary has a Grammy nomination for best music film and directly join me in studio to make the case that Elvis Presley's life mirrors, America itself. What could be more American than Elvis Presley who better represents the American dream here. You have a country boy from the Mississippi, delta, the poorest of the poor who because of his own talent and his own persistence, and vision and ambition and all those good things rises to become what the king what more could fulfill the American dream than that. So as Elvis grows up, we watch Elvis in America work in parallel. They both rise like a meteor. They both end up with power for which they're not prepared. They both struggle with the undertow of that power. And so they start reaching out for all kinds of quick fixes to deal with these fractures of the soul. And as we look ahead into how this world has to be made better. We ourselves have to make ourselves less seduce people, but our by money and buy other things that are quick fixes. I want to talk a little bit about cultural appropriation and a black music by Elvis in the movie. King of rock and roll.

Jim one of the scariest aspects of this song is the fact that the singer Scott Walker once used to be in a group called the Walker brothers seeing music that was completely unlike what I'm about to play the Walker brothers had a huge hit in the sixties called the sun ain't gonna shine anymore. You can YouTube it and find out what that's all about and play that song. And then play this next one that I'm about to lay on you into. That's the same guy Skywalker using that plush baritone crooner's voice in a more sinister fashion, and this it's from his two thousand six called drift. And in this song, he starts with this kind of this post nine eleven scenario, and then it morphs into this meditation on Elvis Presley in the womb of his mother lying next to his dead. Twin? Jesse people don't realize, but maybe that Elvis Presley did actually have twin who was stillborn, and he's imagining this conversation, it's actually a one way conversation Elvis talking to this this dead person lying next to him in the womb and just that scenario alone. Creeps me out. That's why a start. But then he plays it out. And you'll hear what happens next. But basically, it's it's pretty existential piece of pop music, if you can call it pop music, it's more leaning on experimental and classical music, but it is among the darkest narratives I've ever seen in a pop song Skywalker with Jesse unsound opinions.

This is you know here we. Are with Elvis would there. With the FBI here's in Vegas. They're trying to. Find, out if, this person this Frederick pro is tied into the people in Vegas which was which was the other side of. The investigation so all of this is going on in the weeks preceding Elvis Presley's odd very odd demise So so Vernon and Elvis are asked by. The FBI to take part in the sting operation to nab these guys correct absolutely so like I, said Elvis Presley died mysteriously days before he was going. To turn states evidence in this airplane staying so he had it's, just incredible, you know, by By seventy, seven He had managed to this, off the, mob his manager. The federal government he was writing people out. Of his will he was firing people or, letting them go he he was breaking up. With his, girlfriend I, mean I, in you know you get to the point where there are more people that wanted this guy. Dead in life he had managed to piss. Off almost everybody, it, was. Incredible really right you have all of this beehive of angst around this guy who mysteriously ends up that the the people in Graceland the extended family that we're basically just sort of backbiters backstabbers and leeches living off of his avails Verion. Was trying to cut them out because again, he was, trying to get. Elvis's finances in order and so there were. Some people that were let go inside the, Memphis mafia that now all of a sudden. You know, they have, kind of, a they've got a motive here a lotta motives Elvis Presley's father was divorcing his wife the. Stanley and his his boys were of course. Raised with with, fell, this. And now we have to change the will because Elvis has to write people out of his will and he wrote a lot of people out of as well at the time Elvis Presley died there were two wills So I hope we have time to get into, the cover, up because it's so there's, all kinds of things going, on three of. His toughest bodyguards red west Sonny west, and Dave Hoeveler two of the three, died last, year as well as a. Shame losing people they will let go by Vernon not Elvis and smile their multiple reasons why they. Were let go but they'd swore vengeance and they started this bodyguard book which. Was this tell. All Elvis what happened Talking about the back stories of all the things that Elvis allegedly did it was kind of a childish book it was a, revenge, book so, we, have that going. On their outs smear his name and Colonel Parker gets frustrated with Elvis Elvis's. Becoming a liability he's canceling tours, he's not drawing like you used to he's starting to have some, health issues so the. Kernel tries to sell his contract, it gets picked? Up by paper, in Nashville So here comes the. Bodyguard books on the heels, of Elvis of Colonel Parker trying to sell his contract when of course no one's going to buy, the contract now now. That all of. These lurid things are out in the. Public so you know in a roundabout. Way you know that didn't do Elvis any. Favors is in nineteen seventy six seventy seven Colonel Parker couldn't pay off his, gambling debts and he's a fear for his life you're not, gonna hold them up thirty two million dollars I, got news for you right right but but but but Colonel Tom had. Also positioned himself where he had figured out a way where, he didn't, need a living Elvis to continue to make, money in nineteen seventy four Colonel Parker started boxcar enterprises which. Is kinda the precursor to, what Elvis, Presley enterprises is and it was above Morton thing just like Elvis. Presley enterprises as, only risk proudly enterprises is better at. It much better he could sell and Elvis got a little chunk of this of course just like all the deals that business, deals it was grossly unfair to Elvis and. He he being Colonel Parker could sell his image you know posters.
