"About leaked documents that show the lengths to which Uber went to take on the taxi industry in country after country. In France, the Uber files have provoked new questions about the role of president Emmanuel Macron. Here's Rebecca rossman. Uber's courting of Macron started in 2014, according to text messages and emails leaked by a former Uber executive. The company was desperately looking for an ally who could help them expand their operations in France. Emmanuel Macron was then working as the economy minister under socialist president Francois Hollande. Amidst the trove of more than a 124,000 documents known as the Uber files that was proof of secret meetings with lobbyists, reassurances of support, and suggestions that Macron offered to help Uber expand the company at the expense his critics say of France's license taxi drivers. As much as. On Tuesday, Macron brushed off the allegations, telling reporters he was, quote, proud of supporting Uber because they created jobs for French workers. And he would do it again tomorrow and the day after tomorrow. French authorities quickly backed the president, saying his actions were part of his normal duties as minister. But opposition politicians on the political left and far right are calling for a parliamentary inquiry into the details of Macron's relationship with Uber. Speaking of France Ontario radio on Tuesday, far left MP Francois Rouen called for an investigation into Macron's 2017 presidential campaign donors, implying some sort of ongoing quid pro quo. Macon, meanwhile, has praised Uber for giving jobs to thousands of young people from the troubled working class suburbs. That explanation isn't enough to please France's licensed cab drivers who unlike Uber drivers have to undergo around 300 hours of training and pay up to €250,000 for an official taxi license. So far their protests against what they call the organization of France haven't worked. But opposition forces in parliament say this time, they're going to make sure the president listened. For NPR news, I'm Rebecca rossman. Later on morning edition several states have abortion related questions on the ballot this year. Legislators are much more beholden to their political party instead of the people in their community. And so the ballot measure is really our tool for liberation. More on these efforts to push the battle over abortion rights directly to voters that's coming up. At about 15 minutes

"Emmanuel Macron's uncertain future after the French elections. By Ian bremmer. Emmanuel Macron has had quite a ride the past few weeks. In April, he scored a resounding 17 point victory over far right opposition veteran marine le pen to secure a second 5 year term as Francis president. Then, on June 19th, his political alliance suffered a historic defeat in parliamentary elections. His block needed 289 seats for a majority in the National Assembly. With just 245 seats, his ensemble alliance didn't come close. It's the first time since 1988 that France's elections haven't provided the winning party a majority of seats, even in that case, Francois mitterrand's socialists came close enough that his government could cobble together support for key pieces of legislation from a few opposition lawmakers on a case by case basis. That avenue will be much more difficult for Macron with even more lawmakers to convince. Never mind that detailed negotiation and compromise have never been strong suits for a president who hasn't had to do much horse trading during his political life. In short, Macron was elected to lead, but voters haven't given him enough deputies to follow. France now enters a time of political uncertainty. It's not just that Macron will face intense opposition within the assembly from both left and right, even the opposition blocks may break into pieces. The largest opposition alliance is composed of odd political bedfellows from the left, who were brought together during the campaign by political firebrand Jean Luc Mellon, who will want to keep this loose grouping of greens, socialists, communists, and others, which won 131 seats in June as part of a stable voting block. But the interests of these parties look too diverse for that. Macron is expected to look for limited backing from the conservative Republican, which will hold 64 seats in the assembly, but the LR has its divisions, too. There are enough centrists in that party who share Macron's views on lowering taxes and state spending to provide backing for his reform agenda, but a sizable share of LR deputies, now lean further toward the nationalist right, and many on this faction are eager to defy Macron's pro EU pro business reform ideas. The LR's acting leader Christian Jacob has ruled out any plan to join with ensemble in a formal coalition. Instead, he promises constructive opposition. The LR will choose a new leader this fall, and to avoid losing more members and voters to le pen's far right, EU hostile national rally, there's a good chance the new leader will steer the party further to the right. Francis government won't be completely paralyzed in a time of economic hardship, many will back new spending to help voters whether the economic storm by extending state subsidies to keep prices in check for electricity and fuel. And though the hard left and the far right will voice hostility towards sanctions on Russia and military support for Ukraine, there are enough deputies among centrists and greens to continue support for Macron's plans. But the long-term reform agenda meant to make France more economically competitive will be nearly impossible to pass. Macron can only hope that several months of bitter political infighting will exhaust French voters and that by next spring he can dissolve the assembly and call new elections. But for now, it's hard to imagine what might change in the months ahead to incline more voters toward strengthening Macron's hand..

"News. Emmanuel Macron loses majority in shocking French election result. January 6th committee sets its sights on Mike Pence and Ginny Thomas. And Apple retail staff in Maryland face hurdles after vote to unionize. It's Monday, June 20. I'm Anthony Davis. French president Emmanuel Macron's centrist alliance has lost its majority despite getting the most seats in the final round of parliamentary elections on Sunday, while the far right national rally appeared to have made big gains. The projections say Macron's candidates would win far less than the 289 required to have a straight majority at the National Assembly, France's most powerful House of parliament. The situation which is highly unusual in France is expected to make Macron's political maneuvering difficult if the projections are borne out. A new coalition made up of the hard left, the socialists and the greens is expected to become the main opposition force with about a 140 to a 160 seats. The national rally is projected to register a huge surge with potentially more than 80 seats up from just 8 before. Polling was held nationwide to select the 577 members of the National Assembly. Prime minister Elizabeth Bourne said the unprecedented situation is a risk to our country faced with challenges at the national level, as well as at the international scale. Born who herself won a seat in western France suggested Macron's centrist alliance will seek to get support from lawmakers from diverse political forces to find good compromises. The national rallies leader marine le pen who lost to Macron in the presidential election was reelected as an MP in her stronghold in henin Beaumont in northern France. The Macron adventure has reached its end le pen said the group of national rally lawmakers will be by far the biggest of the history of our political family. Macron's government will still have the ability to rule, but only by bargaining with legislators. The centrists could try to negotiate on a case by case basis with lawmakers from the center left and from the Conservative Party when the goal of preventing opposition lawmakers from being numerous enough to reject the proposed measures. Members of the House committee investigating the insurrection at the U.S. capitol said on Sunday they may subpoena former vice president Mike Pence and awaiting to hear from Virginia Ginny Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice clarence Thomas about her role in the illegal plot to overturn the 2020 election. Lawmakers indicated they will release more evidence about Donald Trump's efforts to defraud supporters by fundraising of false claims of a stolen presidential election. They also pledged to provide pertinent material to the Justice Department by the end of the month for its criminal investigation. The department complained in a letter last week that the committee was complicating its investigation by not sharing transcripts from its 1000 interviews. For example, the committee has been able to document most of Trump's end of his call to Pence on the morning of the insurrection on January 6th, 2021, when the then president made his final plea for Pence to stop the certification of Joe Biden's victory when Pence presided over the Electoral College count in Congress. Members have not yet documented directly what Pence said in response. Committee members also hope to learn more about Ginny Thomas own effort to keep Trump in office and the potential conflicts of interest posed on her husband as a result of January 6 cases that come before the Supreme Court. Republican state representative rusty Bowers, the Arizona House speaker, is scheduled to testify at the committee's hearing tomorrow, focusing on state officials who are contacted by Trump and The White House as Trump tried to overturn the results. Bowers is likely to be asked about the emails he received from Thomas, urging him and other state officials to set aside Biden's 2020 win and choose their own set of electors. An historic vote by employees of a Maryland Apple store to unionize the first for the technology giant is a significant step in a lengthy process that labor experts say is heavily stacked against workers in favor of their employers. Apple store employees in a Baltimore suburb voted to unionize by a nearly two to one margin on Saturday, joining a growing push across U.S. retail service and tech industries to organize for greater workplace protections. It's not yet clear whether the recent wave of unionization represent a broader shift in U.S. labor, but experts say the current shortage of workers for hourly and low wage jobs means employees have more power than they had historically, especially when unemployment is low. The Apple retail workers in Taos and Maryland voted 65 to 33 to seek entry into the international association of machinists and aerospace workers, the unions announcement said. The national labor relations board now has to certify the outcome. Once the vote is certified, the union and apple can begin negotiating a contract. Labor law in the United States is a long process, and so the fact that a single store negotiates or elects a union doesn't mean there is a negotiated contract in the workplace. For instance, Apple could say it doesn't believe that the bargaining unit certified by the NLRB is.

Chris Reed's Angelic Vision for Emmanuel Macron

"Back, I'm talking to my friend Chris Reed of Morningstar ministries, Chris for a lot of people, this is really chilling stuff. And I think I want to get an opportunity to process this with you in the weeks ahead. Because this is very important, very specific stuff. So, okay, you shared about Emmanuel Macron in the video. You mentioned, by the way, his name is Emmanuel, which means God with us. I don't know if that's significant or a coincidence or or whatever. And I myself don't want to believe that we're at that point in the end times yet. And the angel didn't make that clear to you, but the angel did say some very specific things to you. What else are we leaving out so far? So manual mccrone is only 44, so I mean, we're talking ten years. He's only going to be 54. So I don't know he didn't say the time frame of the events, but he did start off with Biden and Putin and he said that that would happen pretty soon and that coming out of power will be fairly close together. But getting back to Manuel Macron, the Bible does say in the book of thessalonians, it says that the man of sin would stand in the temple proclaiming himself to be God. You know, Emmanuel, meaning God with us, and here's the other interesting thing, Eric. His name Macron in one of the original languages means the Mark. Macron. Yeah, so I'm not trying to make too much of this stuff. Maybe some of this stuff has nothing to do with it, but I know what the angel said. There are some other interesting things about what the Bible says about the anti crisis says he would not regard the desire of women. A lot of people don't know this. Manuel Macron's wife is 25 years older than him.

"This morning because French president Emmanuel Macron is heading for a second term after defeating nationalist leader marine le pen in yesterday's runoff Now Macron gets another 5 years to convince French voters his pro business pro Europe vision will work for them Let's get more now joining us live from Paris Bloomberg's Caroline kono Caroline good to have you with us this morning and look at the results beat le pen by a 17 point margin to this American size that looks like a landslide but we got kind of a somber victory speech from last night What's the takeaway There was a huge relief on the shonda mass at the feet of the Eiffel Tower last night where Emmanuel Macron considered his victory for this second Monday for another 5 years but clearly it was not the same loan slide victory that we had back in 2017 at the time he had one with 66% of the votes against that same national value leader marine le pen last night He only won with 58% of the votes So clearly the margin was not as wide meaning that there is a large proportion of the French who felt left behind who felt like he hasn't really dealt with their daily issues when it comes for example to energy inflation the issue of the cost of living or even their concerns about immigration or Europe So clearly this is something that Emmanuel Macron will have to address in his next mandate And there is a sense of responsibility here because last night he said I will address all the French including those who voted for me only to block mine in Japan and including those who are voted for the extreme I am comfortable for what happened because he knows that he will be held accountable if an anti establishment far left or far right candidate gets to power next time in 2027 And it sounds Karolina as though that sort of sets up where the next round of voting is going to happen in just a couple of months here with parliamentary elections How is now president Macron setting the stakes for the parliamentary vote that's coming up Just in a few weeks here This is what everybody calls the third round of these presidential elections meaning the parliamentary elections happening mid June in France because even though Macron got clear majority last time around 5 years ago it may be more difficult this time is a party republic on the move has performed poorly in previous local cities and regional elections over the past couple of years And clearly those who voted against him in this presidential election from the far right of the far left will clearly try and get to majority in order to prevent Emmanuel Macron from really doing the policies he wants to implement over this next 5 years For example Jean Luc melon showing this left candidate who came third in the first round with about 22% of the French votes actually said last night the third one starts tonight He called the French to vote for him In order to get a majority in parliament because if that happens that means Emmanuel Macron will be forced to choose a prime minister which is different from his party And that will actually make it very difficult for him to really govern So the politics continue in France Thanks for this Caroline good having you on with us Caroline Cohen on Bloomberg Paris correspondent joining us from Paris this morning Karen All right Nathan thank you It is 5.

"France's Emmanuel Macron wins second term as president. Top level U.S. delegation meets zelensky in Ukraine. And climate change brings multiple wildfires in New Mexico. It's Monday, April 25. I'm Anthony Davis. Emmanuel Macron won a second term as French president on Sunday, triggering relief among allies that the nuclear armed power won't abruptly shift course in the midst of the war in Ukraine, from European Union and NATO efforts to punish and contain Russia's military expansionism. The second 5 year term for the 44 year old liberal centrist spared France and Europe from the seismic upheaval of having far right populist marine le pen at the helm, Macron's presidential runoff challenger, who quickly conceded defeat, but still scored her best ever electoral showing. Acknowledging that numerous voters cast ballots for him simply to keep out the fiercely nationalist le pen, Macron pledged to reunite the country that is filled with so many doubts, so many divisions, and work to assuage the anger of French voters that fed le pen's campaign. Le pen pledged to dilute French ties with the 27 nation EU, NATO and Germany moves that would have shaken Europe's security architecture as the continent deals with its worst conflict since World War II. Le pen also spoke against EU sanctions on Russian energy supplies and faced scrutiny during the campaign over her previous friendliness with the Kremlin. A chorus of European leaders hailed Macron's victory since France has played a leading role in international efforts to punish Russia with sanctions and is supplying weapons to Ukraine. Democracy wins Europe wins, said Spanish prime minister Pedro Sanchez. Macron won with 58.5% of the vote to le pen's 41.5%, significantly closer than when they first faced off in 2017. Macron is the first French president in 20 years to win reelection, since incumbent Jacques chirac, trounced le pen's father in 2002. The U.S. secretaries of state and defense met on Sunday Night with Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky in the highest level visit to the country's capital by an American delegation since the start of Russia's invasion. The meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and U.S. defense secretary Lloyd Austin, which was confirmed by a senior Ukrainian official, came as Ukraine pressed the west for more powerful weapons against Russia's campaign in the Donbass region of eastern Ukraine, where Moscow's forces sought to dislodge the last Ukrainian troops in the battered port of mariupol, before the session, zelensky said he was looking for the Americans to produce results, both in arms and security guarantees. You can't just come to us empty handed today, and we are expecting not just presents or some kind of cakes. We are expecting specific things and specific weapons, he said. Zelensky's last face to face meeting with a top U.S. official was on the 19th of February in Munich with vice president Kamala Harris, 5 days before Russia's invasion. While the west has funneled military equipment to Ukraine, zelensky has stressed repeatedly that his country needs more heavy weapons, including long-range air defense systems and warplanes. The governor of New Mexico, Michelle Grisham, has signed emergency declarations as 20 wildfires continued to burn on Sunday in nearly half of the state's drought stricken 33 counties, one wildfire in northern New Mexico that started on the 6th of April merged with a newer fire on Saturday to form the largest blaze in the state, leading to widespread evacuations in Mora and San Miguel counties. That fire was 84 square miles on Sunday and just 12% contained. An uncontained wind driven wildfire in northern New Mexico that began on April 17 had charred 81 square miles of ponderosa pine, oak brush and grass by Sunday morning at an unincorporated community in more county. Meanwhile, in Arizona, some residents forced to evacuate due to wildfire near Flagstaff, were allowed to return home yesterday morning in Nebraska, authorities said wind driven wildfires sweeping through parts of that state killed a retired Cambridge fire chief and injured at least 11 firefighters. Wind and temperatures in New Mexico diminished Saturday, but remained strong enough to still fan fires, dozens of evacuation orders remained in place. More than 200 structures had been charred by the wildfires so far, and an additional 900 remained threatened Grisham said. Fire management officials said an exact damage count was unclear because it's still too dangerous for crews to go in and look at all the homes that have been lost. Some 1000 firefighters were battling the wildfires across New Mexico, which already has secured about $3 million in grants to help with the fires. Grisham said she had asked The White House for more federal resources and she's calling for a ban of fireworks statewide. Wildfire has become a year round threat in the west, given changing conditions that include earlier snow melt and rain coming later in the fall scientists have said. The problems have been exacerbated by decades of fire suppression and poor management along with a more than 20 year mega drought that studies linked to human caused climate change.

is where we focus on the UK business highlights of the morning businesses making announcements here in the capital on results trading updates M and a and plenty more joining us is Bloomberg's breaking news editor Charles capable chance good morning Heathrow It's busiest months since the pandemic began is the Easter holiday rush Yeah absolutely in London's busiest airport reported that bumper march passenger levels but that was after a very weak start to the year in January and February but they're saying demand driven by weekend trips abroad the school holidays and then also Brits making the most of those all of that credit we have after those canceled trips from coronavirus That means that the number that passenger numbers in March was significantly up and it's the best they've had since the pandemic began Now they are looking forward and they expect the summer peak to be very very busy with the peak days close to those 2019 levels but they are saying that they are not sure what the future of travel looks like There's a lot of uncertainty around not to mention just the impact of the war in Ukraine higher fuel prices as well lower GDP growth and then also always the potential for more variants of concern to emerge So Heathrow coming out with a very positive statement but a note of caution at the end Okay so continued uncertainty for the travel sector there are underscored by what's happening at Heathrow Essential This is a company that says it's in the early stages of separating some of its assets Exactly so essential is a media and consulting company And there was a report by Sky News over the weekend which basically said it's looking at separating its digital operations and listing them in the U.S. Now essential didn't directly confirm that report But what they did say is that they're in the early stages of evaluating the merits of a managed separation of certain assets So it's very similar to that report but they're trying to say that this is something which the board does at all all the time you know they're thinking it's just prudent to be thinking about the way the company is structured and they are in the process of considering that Now their shares are up about 3.7% this morning They were up as high as I think over 8% So there is a lot of movement in this stock but they've come out confirming that Sky News report Okay And we also have an update or at least some news from treat PLC which is a I believe a flavorings and fragrances UK based expecting a return to seasonality what's going on here Exactly well trick PLC is one of these companies that I love speaking about on the London brush And that's because it's just so niche and they have almost a market climate within themselves Now of course inflation is one of these really really important topics They've said that they've had decades of managing inflationary presses and managing prices and they say of course their prices are impacted by general inflation But it's also impacted by things like climate change and other micro market movements And they're saying for example in the first half orange oil prices continue to build to all time highs but lemon oil prices were falling Now as they're moving to the second half of the year exactly They're returning to seasonality They say that they're operating profit will be weighted to the second half of the year and they expect to deliver materially strong margins in the second half of the year as well The granularity of global commodity prices there with lemon prices what lower than lemon oil prices lower than orange Orange oil prices going up lemon oil prices Within the citrus oil Exactly which is actually one of their biggest sectors So it's really key for this company Great stuff Bloomberg's breaking news

guerin's this is Bloomberg Danny Leigh Anne Thank you very much Well let's get back to the first story that Leanne was mentioning in its deja vu and France with Emmanuel Macron facing marine le pen in the final round of the French election on April 24th just like in 2017 joining us from Paris now is Bloomberg's all over crook Oliver especially for international audience If you could walk through the results because the polls that I saw basically a lot of the commentary was okay if Macron gets over 25% it's all clear from him And he did indeed get that But there does seem to be this back and forth that perhaps it's not exactly a straight line for him to the presidency That's right Danny There's a degree to which it seems like it was a little bit kind of according to kind of anticipation You know in mind you're in my home versus the nationalist 9 to ten or a kind of rematch of 2017 My homecoming in a 27% which is a bit higher than I think a lot of people anticipated the pen at 24% and then mineral showing the far left over a 21% And so you look at the polls that were taken immediately after this you know in the average of three polls see him still leading by about 8 points But then there was another one that had him leading by only two And that's well within the margin of error And I think that the real question is if we've seen anything we've done anything from this campaign so far is actually a lot can change in a relatively short period of time It was seen as a slam dunk shoo in for my cone just a couple of weeks ago and then that kind of gab began to narrow And I think that that's what we're going to see in the next couple of weeks In terms of the other candidates they move through his way behind le pen predictably he's sort of on the far right And then the others however and this is kind of where it gets interesting I'll show him the far left candidate Again about 20% of the vote did not support my call but said basically you need to do what you can to stop le pen And you heard that echoed overthrow him in a couple of other candidates You had also the elite cuss And the green leader janik is both with 5% calling for their supporters to vote for the pen So that's sort of the lay of the land going into round two April 24th What does it mean all over that we did see some of these far left and of course marine le pen far right candidates get such a sizable amount of support from the electorate Well I think there's a little bit.

Éric Zemmour Reshapes the French Right Wing

"Because what we're seeing in France is a kind of a remaking of the French right. The French right wing. And the more the candidate who is came kind of out of nowhere. This guy is an intellectual. He's a former pundit and sort of newspaper columnist. But he's a bespectacled, somewhat brooding, but also emotionally and rhetorically powerful writer and speaker. And he is giving the French right a kind of new flair, a new respectability, and he's finding a broader swath of support. Now, it may not be enough for him to beat Emmanuel Macron, but it'll be really telling if a guy likes Moore, who is, in a sense, so like Trump, altering the parameters of politics, taking topics that were once outside the bounds. Topics like who's a French, who's a French man or French woman, what does it mean to be French? And taking the movement of French culture over the last 30 or 40 years, which has been dramatically toward greater multiculturalism, more of an Islamist organization, a friend, a challenging of the old French idea that you become French by essentially speaking the French language and embracing French national identity. So that is simulationist model of France as being challenged by the left in France. Now, what's interesting and I mentioned this the last time I talked about zamora is that he is actually pulled Macron to the right. And this may actually be his greatest

"Slash NPR and from the Annie E Casey foundation This is all things considered from NPR news I marry Louise Kelly The European Union has pledged to be carbon neutral by 2050 but the blocks too largest members Germany and France disagree on how to get there The countries have diametrically opposed visions of nuclear power And that could complicate EU plans for a cohesive strategy We'll hear more now from our correspondents in both places Beginning with NPR's Eleanor Beardsley in France President Emmanuel Macron recently made a speech that no one could have imagined a few years ago He said for the first time in decades France will launch the construction of new nuclear reactors to ensure energy independence and reach carbon neutrality by 2050 For many years nuclear was popular in France the country gets 70% of its electricity from atomic energy that changed in 2011 The delicate situation post Fukushima meant for a number of European countries including France to rethink their nuclear strategies That's energy consultant Pierre Louis Brennan of C a partners He says the tidal wave that swept over the Fukushima daiichi nuclear plant in Japan had a profound effect on public opinion after the deadly accident president Francois Hollande promised to reduce the country's dependence on nuclear but then act says came another wake up moment the 2015 Paris climate conference the world he says realized climate change was already upon us You realize that not only do you need less carbon emitting electricity sources but you need more electricity in total And that's where really a nuclear came back in fashion Nuclear comes back into solving this equation because the nuclear is a source of abundant electricity extremely low carbon if not zero carbon Brain access France's nuclear as integral to energy transition to work alongside renewables Renewable energy sources are excellent but they can not work alone because they are intermittent meaning that when the wind stops blowing or when the sun is covered with clouds you don't get an electricity out of them Two other factors playing in nuclear's favor these days are skyrocketing natural gas prices and the threat of dependence on energy from Russia Last month the world nuclear exposition took place on the outskirts of Paris for the first time since.

"Was working for a radio station in Houston. I was 20 years old at the time. I was working for a station down there. We actually own the station K R B. And we were out doing our big promotion with all the disc jockeys Aaron, the K R B E van is painted up, but it's a big deal and we're looking for your bumper sticker. If you have a bumper sticker on your car, we're gonna give you a prize. But today was the big day we're giving away $10,000. All we have to do is find a bumper sticker. We drove around for an hour never saw a bumper sticker. Finally, we were passing a 7 11 and one of the people that there's one There's one of the parking lot. That's all Thank God. So we went and gave the guy the 10 grand, which I was just great cause he just lost his job. Very heartwarming. Ah, good guy gets it and we said all right, we're starving. Let's go eat lunch, and so We went and found this place that was selling baked potatoes by these little little odd little shops that you have, You know, it just has especially so we pull in there. And we go in. We have our baked potato. We're celebrating high five. You know, we helped somebody out is a good day. Today we drive back to the station. The manager is standing outside fuming. Because unbeknownst to us because nobody was paying attention. We parked in the parking lot of a 25 Cent. Peepshow xxx Mood Nude Nude and there is the station van all painted up to you by K. R. B in the parking lot. I love it. That ratings went up probably did. Let's transition to our next trending topics. Thank God. French President Emmanuel Macron has tested positive for the coronavirus. McCrone has canceled all of coming trips, and we'll isolate for least seven days, according to government officials. I guess over their prime ministry can be priority. Is it? A prime minister pronounced presidents president President, you could be president. She's been there a while he has been for a while. Macron's past week has included visits that put him in close contact with many European officials, Ernie, including you guessed it. Portugal's Prime Minister, Antonio Kostya. And the president of Spain, Pedro Sanchez, those Rahman also be wearing familiar with those two. Jim, We know where he got it now. Now, Manya macron, fun fact wife, much older, kind of creepy, Pretty sure they met when he was in high school, and she was the teacher. I'm almost part Scottish, like a Van Halen song come to life. I don't know it for a fact it could be false. But we're just going to say it's true because it makes a better story. It really does. And I actually think it is true. Things. Things are a little different over there. In France. They look at that stuff a little different than many world leaders now have had coronavirus seven. Okay, There's the number we were looking for. Most of the world leaders have had coronavirus because they come in contact with people. That's just the way things work fancy. Yeah, In fact, I think I think Boris Johnson's had it twice Now. I think he's going for the trifecta. Have it twice. That's not true. You can have it twice. You think you can have as many times as you want. I don't think that's true either. Okay, so like candy, you could just get us much as you can have as much as you want. Now, let's transition to our trending topic number one Still covert related, All right. While the at home covert test approved Tuesday by the FDA is being heralded Ernie is a breakthrough in the medical community community. At least one expert is cautioning people to avoid putting too much faith in the results. Manufactured by an Australian company called in bloom. The over the counter testing kit not only promises to deliver results in 20 minutes, but it also aims to free a pre sources and doctor's offices and emergency rooms. However, the director of the FDA Center for Diseases and Radiological Health says any test can produce false results, especially when it's an over the counter version. Well, I feel much more educated, knowing this is if I would have put all my stock how many? How many at home medical tests are there now There's the one where you poop in the cup and mail it in. That one is shocking. Yeah, that one is. That's pretty disgusting, too. May I would not want to be the guy working in the Mail room at that company. And then you got this coronavirus where you stick this up your nose, and then you got the pee test where you find out whether or not you're pregnant, Sharing all this way. Do we not need doctors anymore? Can we just do this all ourselves? I'm gonna buy the time life home surgery books. Exactly. Yeah. Now, he says, quote This test, like other Auntie Gin test is less sensitive and less specific than typical. You guessed it molecular test run in the lab. I was wondering when you compared to that. Okay, So it says about the molecular levels not it's for It's not. Yeah is opposed to getting really deep into the molecular level. This one just simply looks at this snot and says, Well, it still poop in a cup. But I think you're okay, says quote, however, the fact that it can be used completely at home and return results quickly means that he can play an important role and response to the pandemic. Just kind of hedging his bets. Last con comment. Would you trust the results of an at home test? Of course I wouldn't. Would. Why not? Sure. Yeah, Okay. You changed me. You've changed my mind with that kind of logic. How could I argue? Why not? Sure said I was okay. Kayla, If I say one thing and information, you know, I got I wouldn't got tested a few weeks ago. We had the scare in the building, and, uh, I got a letter from the insurance company said these people are tested. You're trying to charge us $1463 for that test. Sounds about right. And I said, Well, pay it. You know, I'm thinking to myself Well, pay it. You're the insurance company here that you're the fools who run bills through the roof. Pay the damn bill. Did you send an open letter to the insurance? That's right. I wrote an open letter published it in U. S a today because of my own personal issue. $1400. I thought? Well, you know, I I think that's outrageously high, but they'll build it just they think, Yeah, they'll they'll build it because maybe the insurance company will pay it when, in reality, it probably cost him a quarter. Our health system is so screwed so messed up. I know. I find out what makes it fun. It's like you're just gambling. When you go to the doctor, how much it'll call here was a dumb part. I walked in. To set it up. And it said we take all insurance is so I whipped out my insurance card. They say. Yeah, we take that. Okay. Good. What I'm thinking all that's good. They take my arm yourself with the letter says we have no contract with this organization. What they took the insurance. I thought that kind of meant the same thing, doesn't it? You take the insurance, but it turns out it does not mean the same thing. That they'll take anything. They just want to get you in the door. That's right. Because at the end of the day we're all idiots When it comes to how the hell did handle health care, so it doesn't matter. I'm no expert on once. Once you've left the building and they've treated you your they have you your balls in a vice. They kind of do that. I was hospitalized for a day three years ago. Got bills for that for probably 18 months. I'm still getting a bill for this. The nous and I have no idea what any of it is, and nobody could explain it, And I don't even know if it's true or not. I could have a million dollars in medical debt and I just have no clue and I'll pay it. They send bills. I just assume Uncle Sam's taking care of it. Here. Here here, letting the government handle it for you. Yes. Okay, well, let's they're always on top of things. They always trust the government to be right on top of things. While they are here to help. They're here to help That's trending topics coming up. They do not want President Trump. Once he's gone from office to move tomorrow, Lago and I'm talking about the people in his neighborhood. They're trying to set up a situation where it makes it impossible for him to move there. Oh, Traffic.
