"In New York and around the world. Good morning, Michael. Good morning, Nathan. The New York City council is deciding whether to ban solitary confinement in jails, Benny Bosco of the correction officers benevolent association says the notion that we're torturing individuals in our system is not the case. However, democratic city council member Tiffany Gabon argued, we need to know what is the root of the violence. The ban is opposed by mayor Eric Adams. It looks like the Senate will pass a bill to fund the government through mid December. Democratic representative Jim mcgovern of Massachusetts was asked about the odds of the measure passing by Friday. I believe it will. I believe it will. I mean, I think it'll pass the Senate either today or tomorrow and then it will come right to the house. And we're prepared to bring it to the floor immediately. And my hope is that after the election, we can I know some of the differences and get an omnibus budget passed so that we can have funding for all of next year and we can move on. Representative mcgovern spoke on sound on, which airs weekdays at 5 p.m. on Bloomberg in a rare show of unity both parties in the Senate agreed to a temporary continuing spending bill that will include disaster aid for whether battered Kentucky, Alabama, Texas, Alaska, and Puerto Rico.

Fresh update on "eric adams" discussed on ToddCast Podcast with Todd Starnes
"Now bob, I understand you've got a theory about this pipeline. Hi, yes, sir. Good morning, Tom. Hi. Thank you. We can't figure out why all these illegal migrants are coming over. What if they're getting ready for a war? What if I don't burn these guys in over here and we're going to go to war with Russia and we've seen all these men illegal men over the bottom. Bob, look, that's a theory, and it's a pretty good theory. Look, there's this idea in America that are nation is set that nobody's going to nobody's going to come and fight us for the Louisiana territory. Nobody's going to come and fight us for the state of California. I disagree with that. And all you have to do is look at what's happening right now with Russia and Ukraine. I mean, Russia wants their property back. And I sincerely believe that there are plenty of people in Mexico and part south that want to retake what was once their property, and that would be California and New Mexico and Arizona and Texas. So I don't think that's out of the realm of possibility, and we really don't know who or what has been coming across that southern border and bob. We'll open this up to our listeners, but I think there's something to that. And I think that's one of the reasons we need to understand who's been coming across the border and what they're up to. And right. Are these guys if they get into our military? Will there be promised ship? Amelia, are there been any time like that? We don't know. Well, California is offering all of them legal ID cards. So we've got that to contend with. So bob appreciate the call. Thank you for listening. 844-747-8868 bob says, hey, look, maybe these illegals that are flooding the border are actually some sort of a secret army, maybe they're you've got terrorists and they're wanting to commit terrorist activity in the United States. I think that's a possibility. You certainly can't just say, eh, you know, they don't do that anymore. Yes, they do. Yes, they do, ladies and gentlemen. But we need to be looking for any sort of an event that's going to destabilize the nation, something so significant that Biden would want to call off the elections or postpone the elections. And I do think that's a possibility, because the Democrats aren't stupid. They know exactly what's going to happen in the midterm elections. They see the same polling data we see ladies and gentlemen. By the way, we're efforting this new video. This is pretty, this is pretty remarkable. There was an event in the rose garden, President Biden, and misses doctor First Lady Joe Biden in a very unflattering dress. Is standing up there and clearly the president is in a state, a very odd state. The video shows her calling the husband over and telling her over and over again you go down this way, Joe, you go down this way, trying to show him how to get off the stage. It's a very small stage, and then he stops and turns and walks the other way. 8 four four 747 88 68. This is the Todd stern's radio show.

Mayor Eric Adams Won't Clarify Where His Chief of Staff Has Been
"What exactly was the research So here's a local media person calling him out Here is liberal privilege right here I don't have to answer to you idiots I'm a liberal I'm the mayor of New York City I just said it was a migration crisis even though my chief of staff decided to bounce and do a research project and you're just going to take my word for it and shut your pie hole Here check it out yourself You have to go back to the idea of cruise ships The times reported that your chief of staff spent time on a cruise ship in France to research purposes One of the what he was trying to figure out there in most of that taxpayer funded Would I go through I answered a cruise ship questioned already I'm not going back and forth in that When there's something when there's something to announce more about a cruise ship idea or any other idea of my announcement I'm finished with that next question He's finished I mean he's not like a public servant or anything I mean he's an oligarch I'm finished with that
Florida Governor Sends Migrants to Martha's Vineyard
"It started out a few weeks, a few months ago. As governor Abbott says, I'm going to take some busloads of migrants and send them to muriel Bowser's front doorstep there in D.C. to Eric Adams in New York that went well. And then to Lori Lightfoot's neighborhood in Chicago, where she promptly schlepped them over into conservative suburbs with Republican mayors. Cry more, cry more. And then Ron DeSantis, I guess day before yesterday, came up with the idea in Florida that says, let's have areas right there on screen and Salem news channel. Watch the entire proceeding zero in the Salem news channel. Let's take some migrants and let's send them to Martha's Vineyard. And then I can imagine governor Abbott there, the governor's mansion in Austin saying, hold my beer, I am now going to send a couple of bus loads to observatory circle in Washington, two Kamala Harris house. Now, this is an important distinction. I have often said, you remember when they were protesting at Brett Kavanaugh's house where they were protesting at Amy Coney Barrett's house, Supreme Court Justices, et cetera. And whether it's a national issue or a local issue, I am the guy who's always said in terms of protest, stay away from people's homes. Go to their offices, their workplaces, stay away from people's private homes. Ha ha. They're in lies the meaningful adjective because observatory circle is not a private home. That's
Steve Bannon: 'They're Gonna Have to Kill Me to Stop Me'
"Is clear. This is all part and parcel of criminalizing conservatives in the speech in Philadelphia is the nadir or the crossing of the Yoruba con in that criminalization. But the idea that Steve Bannon, who's if there was one issue outside of the navy, perhaps if there's one issue that was closest to your heart in the last 6 years, it was building the wall that somehow you would build Americans out of money to build the wall. We've never had a donut. What we did in LPs. People want to see what we did their videos up and watch the movie saraka. Sicario. Sicario. Sicario is a story seen with Emily bloom. It's a story of El Paso, Texas, and Juarez. That's when we built the first wall straight up that multi cartels trafficked all the people. Look, I am so proud of the work we did and we're building one. Quite frankly, the ironies today is that mayor Adams has a team at the border today to find out what the causes are because he's made New York a sanctuary city. We literally have thousands of these unauthorized aliens coming into the country by 4.9 million. He's taken them when Abbas are busting up there, but now they're all going to New York. He's putting up in hotels in New York, social services are going to collapse. So Adam was actually sent a delegation to the, to the board of the day. He should have gone to the wall, or he should have, as you remember, Seth, we took it all over the country, saying every weekend of the phrase, every town's a boulder town, every space of border state, we went to Detroit. We went to Cincinnati. We went to Arizona. We started telling people we did conferences at the wall of the town of what were we telling them that this situation unless we finish the wall is going to get out of control and in 2022, it's so out of control that even Eric Adams on the day I get hold into a court is Senate delegation down there to find out what's going on. Look, I'm never going to stop. They're going to have to kill me to stop me, okay?

DC & NYC Mayors Suddenly Unhappy About Illegal Aliens Coming In
"Muriel Bowser, who is the big time left wing mayor of Washington D.C. and a big proponent of sanctuary cities, along with Eric Adams, the left wing mayor of New York, who's also a big proponent of sanctuary cities. They're not thrilled these days because Texas governor Greg Abbott said, okay, you love the idea of illegal aliens coming into the United States? We've got a lot of them here in Texas. They're flowing across the border every single solitary day. They are simply doing terrible, terrible things to our infrastructure. I mean, I don't mean they're out there pulling up roads or such, but there's not enough infrastructure. There's not enough school teachers, not enough school buildings. I love healthcare. The rest of it. So Greg Abbott said, well, here's what we're going to do. We're going to send some of these folks your way. And so Texas governor Greg Abbott has been sending buses filled with illegal aliens to Washington, D.C., and to New York, and all of a sudden, all of a sudden these major proponents of sanctuary cities, these folks who are just thrilled with every goofy left wing policy there is, now they're saying, well, this is problematic. It's a real drain on our infrastructure. You don't say. Because I could have sworn governor Abbott said that. I could have sworn that there were mayors on the border who said that. But now it's happening in Washington D.C.. Now it's a crisis. But what does mural Bowser wants? Mural Bowser isn't saying, oh yeah, we ought to secure that border. Absolutely. I've reevaluated. No, no, no. She says, well, we just need more help from the federal government.

Mother Defends Her Child's Rapist
"We can save little girls and women from being raped, you know that ten year old girl has to forget men that was sat there and her was she was raped by this illegal alien her mother, likely an illegal alien to her mother complicit, her mother is still defending the pervert that freaking raped her daughter. But see, here's the issue. Here's the issue. Another reason why we shouldn't have open borders because there are things that exist and other countries that aren't necessarily frowned at, that are frowned at here. You understand, when people come to this country, they should assimilate. They should not be coming to this country illegally, but I don't know why the left is upset. I don't know why mayor Eric Adams is upside. I don't know why Mariel Bowser is upset. This is exactly what the left wanted. This is exactly what they wanted.

Eric Adams on Rising Crime: I Thought Black Lives Mattered
"But he has a good question This is a question that we've asked here on many occasions Cut sex go As the NYPD was searching for this suspect in the subway shooting yesterday there were more than a dozen shootings in the city last night and not to mention the shootings that we've seen recently of young innocent people some older as well being shot on the streets of New York How do you get a handle on this crime in this city mister mayor Bobby and consistent with our message Here's my question that I put out to the city I felt Black Lives Matter We are all those who stated Black Lives Matter Then go do an analysis of who was killed or shot last night I was up all night speaking to my commanders in The Bronx in Brooklyn The victims were black Many of the shooters were black So I asked the question that was asking me when I was a child It's 10 a.m. 10 p.m. do you know where your children are Why are 16 17 and 18 year olds out in our streets armed with guns 12 1 o'clock at night When are we going to start asking these serious questions If black lives matters then there are thousands of people I saw on the street When Floyd was murdered should be on the street right now state stating that the lives of these black children that are dying every night matters
"eric adams" Discussed on Max & Murphy on Politics
"All right, last couple of minutes here, let's hear from each of you on one more thing or two more things you're watching for from Eric Adams, whether it's appointments, types of policies, issues you want to see him tackle or most interested in seeing him tackle, what are some of the things on Eric Adams played that you're really watching closely or aspects of his administration that you're really looking at here, Harry why don't you why don't you start off? Really keyed in on the schools, which was a place where de Blasio particularly after a fresh Chancellor Carmen farina left sort of explicitly had a broad and ideological vision, he had a lot of backing from The New York Times in particular for that and didn't get very far. Adams and his school's Chancellor David banks have come in rhetorically from a very interesting and different place. Notably one where David max who had his own network of charters that were really aimed at black boys is like we just want better charters just sorry to interrupt. Not charter charter charter yes, but not carefully carefully. Yeah, yeah. Diversity is good integration is good, but the fundamental thing that all parents want is in our fundamental concern that I think this is exactly right or just better schools, not with the mix is within the school, but is my kid going to a decent one. Adams has been emphatic about keeping schools open and against a pressure to this point and that I think may continue to build from the teachers union and from jumana Williams who we've mentioned, miss ready for governor of course, to a slow things down. So I think this is a place where the rhetorical shift is really interesting and as with everything else we're going to find out soon, how that does or does not align with the policies and the results. Christina. Mine is coming from a slightly different vantage point from a black politics point of view. And Harry and I had Adrian Adams and a relation on our podcast last week in cheesy incoming speaker city council. And African American woman for a San African American speaker of state of council. And so it's a complicated dance that Adrian Adams Eric Adams and even Giovanni Williams. Let's just say Giovanni Williams remains public advocate. As African American leaders of New York City, because on the one hand, strategically, sometimes you do need to call people out in public. And then other times, it needs to be back channels. And so I'm curious to see the relationship between the two atoms Adrian and Eric. Because she has a job to do and she has to represent the counsel and represent 9 million New Yorkers as does Eric Adams, but when they clash it's somewhat difficult sometimes for like black people to call out black people in a way because we know that there's the shadow of sort of white press, white people, all these other things. And we saw it with Obama. But on the municipal level, it's somewhat a little more complicated. And so I'll be fascinated to see how the two of them and possibly the three of them negotiate their differences..

"So after those three deaths, he's never able to express what it is he's done. He starts hiding behind a series of complicated buzzwords, talk about community policing that nobody really understands. What it means or how this is different. And consequently, the good that happened on his watch, he never found the language to express that to clarify what had happened and why you deserve credit, which I truly think he did. Yeah, I mean, and again, like on some of these other things we've mentioned, it's like part of this theme where and he even admits he's admitted in his allies have admitted that, you know, he was not great at communicating throughout which again is this confounding thing for someone who knows politics so well obviously and watched the dinkins years so closely and everything since just quickly and we need to move into Eric Adams a little bit, but I was looking back at this recently and that the press conference Bill de Blasio had to announce that they were dropping that appeal on stop and frisk. One of the people that he very sort of assertively shouted out was Eric Adams for his advocacy against the overuse and abuse of stop and frisk, which ties into this campaign that we just all covered and some of the issues that came up there and some of the questions about what kind of error guidance would be especially on this issue. Just quit real quick. You're listening to max politics. This has been maximum Gotham gazette. I'm joined by doctor Christina Greer, Harry Siegel and Sally goldenberg. Thank you all for taking the time again. So are there things as we move to a little bit of conversation on Eric Adams and the city that he's inherited and what he might do with it? Are there things about being mayor of New York City that the de Blasio year is sort of reinforced or taught us that are really important things for Eric Adams to be thinking about for us to be thinking about as we cover watch, analyze Eric Adams, I think there's a whole bunch of lessons and Eric Adams seems to have either already known them or learn them from the de Blasio years, but any sort of big picture things that seem to stand out for this new mayor from having watched the last one. Yeah, I'm gonna start with, you know, obviously being mayor of New York City is a huge deal, so it makes sense that Eric Adams is on the Colbert show and he's been doing all the national television programs this week. But he can't fall into that trap of going all morning Joe a few times a week and not going and speaking to the room 9 folks. He's still in his honeymoon phase, but I think, you know, a little yellow flag that I'll be looking out for is how Eric Adams deals with problems when he's not in the honeymoon phase. The level of defensiveness that we saw in de Blasio, we can feel is palpable in Eric Adams. I mean, just under the surface, it's not enough for beads in the world to get that to go away..

"A team that will reflect the studio. And there's obviously a lot of discussion that as you are leaving office at the end of the year, you'll be part of that administration taking that as a very likely scenario. And obviously, those will be private conversations. But you've chaired the transportation committee for a long time, but you've obviously had a lot of interest in other topics as well. What's kind of the ideal position for you in a mayoral administration? I really need to continue helping array, you know, my focus also yesterday was to be sure that he will get their numbers that he needed to show a big victory. Now we focus on right now on Eric going to almost and from someone's going to the Dominican Republic, which was also, I don't think that he committed that he shared with the borders that he will be the first mayor going in official every year to DR, and he will do it immediately after so my focus right now to be sure that he always successful. Meetings and events that almost any better Dominican Republic. And then hoping that any capacity on anything that he will be doing for me before January 1st and after that we will see what happened by my focus right now is to be sure that I hope every when it comes to anything that he needs to do to hope for him to be as successfully yes, I was about to ask you about those trips to some of Senate Dominican Republic that are coming up that you'll be you'll be going on. So we'll assume those conversations will happen over the coming days and weeks. What does it mean that he will go to Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic here just after becoming mayor elect? Are there, as you say, you know, you're making sure that it will be helping make sure it will be a successful trip. Are there any specific important takeaways that you're sort of have as goals for that trip, especially the second part of it? We will work around the goal there, Eric Garner will have. I know that any major and we have first time that I want to almost in 2013. From their own I've been going every year. You know, that being so much is a great opportunity for the workshops that they organized, but also it's a very particular when it comes to the network of individual be able to interact. So I know that there's going to be few events where mayor very soon, Eric islands who will be attending in Puerto Rico and then after that we will be going again to the Dominican Republic. You know, was going to be participating in number or conversation with different sectors. The Dominica republic, every recognize that of any dominicans may almost 1 million from the 8.6 million residents and New Yorkers are not on New York City. And, you know, he's the first one who see Dominican new year's Dominique in the House green car. Dominicans are close to 400,000 borders. And this is the number that area recognize and recognizing only bordered by recognized as individual that on most of those 300 supermarkets that we have in New York City who own most of the bodega who are doctors who are lawyers who are engineer. So for the dominicans who live in New York City, and for those who live in the art, it's very important to know that a major elect will be making the trip to the RL the first one. The first one that he will make going now on New York City. And that's important again for dominicans who are making important contribution as the different acne group made to this country together recognition that we deserve. And Eric Adams has been a supporter of your legislation to allow green card holders and some other permanent residents of New York City to vote in municipal elections. It doesn't seem like this legislation is going to pass this session mayor de Blasio has said the law department doesn't think the city can do it. I've heard Eric Adams recently say that he recognized that opinion from the law department and might be looking for state action on that issue what's your forecast on what's going to happen around that push to extend municipal voting rights to somewhere in the neighborhood of 1 million New York City residents who are currently unable to vote? As you know, and you have the human saying over and over, I recognize a lot of important things that we were able to accomplish on the mayor de Blasio. Especially for me that in my first full year from 2000 to 2013, I was no able to pass one Bill. I only paused the resolution and I gave condemning the anti immigrant law that was created in Arizona. However, during the final major de Blasio many times, I was able to pass more than 20 bills. And I have seen now a lot of things that we worked for that we couldn't do it from the basic day. It's funding. The next stop program in three key. Municipal ID. Computer for all, after school parole, I know, even the reasoning that different from the past were the reasoning only provide 20% of all the apartment being affordable in those of our apartment, they were only a 400 for 20 or 30 years. He was in this administration where we're able to say affordable will be permanent and we will be 20 or 25%. So as someone that recognizes, we have a lot of things that we could do better, especially that when it comes to lack of safety, even on the third community, not in the middle of the class community, because when we talk about the blank ceiling input to bias in the city, we're talking about the cell growth. We're talking about the working class of leaving the under communities. We are not talking about the upper class community neighborhood. So I do believe that the level of safety that we see in any population should be the same that we should have in perspective in the same age industry. So I think that even though I believe that if I could do better when it comes to public safety, lack of safety in the only person community, I give a lot of credit to paint that he did. So I don't think it's a good look, but it may not like be blasted to leave his new ways that he would have his turn as a major. Obstacle to pass.

"So you have some interesting perspective here, but what's your what are you thinking and telling people who don't follow this in our involved with this, like we are about what you're sort of hoping for from Eric Adams or expecting from him as a different type of leader for this city. So I think de Blasio's biggest challenge was he wanted to be the inequality there, which he equated to also being us against them like business against not business. He wanted to demonize folks in the business community, folks that are creating jobs. While in the name of fighting inequality, whereas Eric Adams wants to fight poverty, but also wants to figure out how to create more jobs and how to and is not at least signaled. He's not going to ostracize huge communities in New York that are hiring people that are bringing people back to work. They're making decisions about whether or not they want to be in New York. He's not going to go after them for the sake of going after that. I'm sure they'll be places they disagree. I'm sure they'll be places where he wants X and they want why. But for the most part, he has said we want those folks here. And I think that's the biggest difference in kind of tonal shift from de Blasio to what we'll be add up. So now you have folks in the business community who are, I mean, the bar was really low. But I think even if the bar wasn't low, they would be excited about Erica Adams. And I think that that has been, especially after COVID and are in the middle of COVID and folks deciding whether or not they're going to stay here. That's a big deal. The controller had a report today that said a $111 million less in the city budget because people are working remote and less people are here and more people are deciding to be elsewhere..

"Having won his democratic primary in june adams is the favourite to become new. York city's next mayor. We just had the primary election for the mayor of new york city and the winner. The very likely next mayor is democrat. Eric adams he's the borough president of brooklyn in a former state senator but most importantly in this race adams was for more than two decades. A police officer and perhaps no debate in our society is more divisive than questions about policing and here adams holds a truly unique position in his youth. He was beaten by police when he joined the nypd himself. He was a firebrand in an advocate for black officers. But now he's a sympathetic figure to the police department. A kind of law and order candidate he rebuked other candidates who spoke of severely cutting police budgets and he made the national spike in violent crime. A big part of his rhetoric. Assuming that eric adams wins the general election which is overwhelmingly. Likely he'll take over a city that faces multiple overlapping crises. That my daunte. Any politician mr adams. You're there this i am day. You are what you do is you. Go to the voice memo you turn it on start a voice memo and start recording and just hold the phone up to your ear as if we're talking on the phone call through the interview my holding like this phone call all right.

We speak in the most conservative calm in the new york times by brad stevens as something of a a savior of a repudiation of the left you see your Likely assent to the to gracie mansion and to city hall as a repudiation of the left in new york city a no. I don't and i think one of the greatest tragedies of this campaign of was the removal of of my left philosophy. I am a progressive and the thirty five plus years of history shows that you know as a sergeant marching in front of rockefeller plaza only to go to albany to reverse. The draconian rockefeller drug laws of marriage. Equality my conference to get that. Vote on the floor on one year to see who were not voting for it and then later to push it through Gun violence. I testified in federal court. The judge mentioned me in her ruling on why she ruled against the police department. And so. I believe that. I am not a repudiation of the left i believe i am of the energy and spirit of new yorkers of don it. They just want to likes to be on. They want their garbage picked up. They don't want their children not being educated. They're paying their taxes and we should be doing all job with their tax dollars and they heard me. I was confused during the campaign. And i never really got a straight answer that i could glean helped me on this. All you say is true and at the same time you switch parties. You became a republican for quite a long time. Why was that yes it was. It was out of real anger of the democratic party. You know sometimes. We view life based on our current state. But we need to go back.

So i love brooklyn i have a substantial investment and i love brooklyn and new brooklyn would be the fourth largest city in the country if it was a city by itself. Maybe you could convince came jeffries to make brooklyn a state of its own. That would be very interesting but booklet. Fine being part of the city and being the city that carries for this. I would say the county that carries new york city. So we're very very happy for brooklyn brooklyn is a an easy Democratic party to deal with because we have all sorts of ideologies across the four corners of the brooklyn we had some conservatives. We have some I would say more on the left side. We have rented conservative. Party lives in brooklyn exactly exactly. So you have all these different ideologies. So my whole thing is a book. Democratic share is unite. everyone and you know some people. Don't want to be reunited. Some people just want to be you know fragmented and just kind of be polarizing opposite ends of the spectrum and just continue to want to be relevant and fight fight fight. but i'm not about fighting about uniting. Which is why we're in like. We're just elated. That eric adams who from brooklyn who will also help the democratic party now in brooklyn on in new york city but help unite the democratic party. Of course the united states they are looking sounds. Good i mean. I always say on my radio show. I am pro commonsense democrats.

Okay and that is got him from a public safety standpoint from an economic standpoint from an education standpoint from a healthier standpoint that's why every single new yorker the vast majority of the new yorkers came out to support eric because they need a lien strong to the general who've been command who will take out city to a level where it will bring strength in every aspect healthcare economics and making sure that We are secure. We have police reform. We have good public safety. I have to say one of the things that i really liked about is that he didn't compromise on his value That's something i really respect and appreciate consistently says that police reform and public safety can go hand in hand. And i believe that too. He was the only candidate who dared to even talk about public safety so remember. None of the candidates wanted to talk about public safety because the whole the whole movement.

Hi connie so nice to see you again getting too so we were talking yesterday and hot topics about valerie. Bertinelli who is fighting back against these twitter troll to fry who shamed for gaining weight and she was so upset about it. You know you've played strong. Female characters urine shows like friday night. Lights and nashville. And you say that you've made it your goal to counteract what women are supposed to look like onscreen that is not easy to do and show business. The maintenance of a skinny body seems absolutely on top of the list. So how are you doing this. Well you know. I just i i feel like my migrate joy and the opportunity that i've had over the years is to Depict women in very authentic ways close to the way we really are as as i ran depending on what the role is and as i personally get older as we all do i you know i'm feeling the effects of that. I'm doing it in front of the camera. You know. I have all of the impact of hollywood and you know the social media thing that i try to stay away from as much as possible but you know i just feel like if i can continue to convey the idea that we are are authentic solves our most beautiful selves And whatever that looks like and the more we can do to explore what that is each of us individually as women. The more powerful and i think the happier will be and and a lot of that has to do with walking out all that Outside noise because the outside noise takes away from what are true voices so you know. I just keep trying to do that and yeah it's not easy. You know i keep. I keep having people's lately are always you know what i love about you. I love that you're not doing anything to your face like i. That's a compliment. i loved. I love that you just letting yourself age. That is just a messing could free. And i'm like yeah thank you. I think at world needs to stop acting like women. Aging is an act of bravery. It's just what happens. But i think it's so toxic that people talk that way to women. But that's just me i your new movie joe. Belva do by the way they do it our whole lives. It just takes different forms depending on what iru decade. You're in also your one most beautiful woman in the world so people were saying that crap. Do you imagine what the rest of us feel like. I mean anyway. I talked to you about this whole show but we have to promote movie which is amazing. Your new movie joe. Bell is based on the true story. Of an oregon. Dad played by mark. Wahlberg who walks across the country to raise awareness about bullying after fifteen year. Old son jayden who was gay. Commit suicide you say that. The film teaches us how to be better allies house. Oh and how did you approach playing jason's mom lola. Well what i love about this film is that it's it's really it's it's really about redemption and what the film shows is people who have genuine misunderstanding about their own son and the fact that he's gay and is due and the community doesn't accept him and his and he is bullied and even his own father doesn't understand and what so we get to go on that journey in the film and watch through. His father's is joe. Bell played like by mark wahlberg. We get to watch him. Start to understand and discover and educate himself and not be afraid of who his son was. Authentically and i think by audiences being able to see that and experience it on this beautiful journey and the storytelling in this film. My hope is that we will open a lot of people's eyes and create a lot more understanding for people who just don't know any better opening their eyes and hopefully their hearts as well Thank you for doing this film because this telling these stories is so important. Because they're kids like that across this country that are watching right now But you're also starring in a new. Hbo limited series called the white lotus a social satire about the darker side of a group of wealthy vacationers in staff at a tropical resort. Now shot this series in hawaii during the pandemic which is not the worst place in the world to be holed up. What was that light. Well it was. I mean it was. It was fantastic and we felt a little bit while a lot sort of spoiled slash guilty because it was really right in the midst of the pandemic and really everybody had been locked down. We had all been live down and and in fact in maui at the four seasons which is where we were.
