It's been awhile I would say half half a some people. They're not opening their businesses. Some businesses are open. I was looking at the stats this morning today. We have seven hundred four new cases of coronavirus in Georgia. Whigs I predict. There's probably more than that because it's a five day span of once you take your test so that's just results from five days ago so I am still being very cautious I wear a mask everywhere gloves and I try to minimize my time being around people. Just I mean I I feel like the sense. People are living up a little bit. And so that's kind of talk about it at least out here in California. Just kind of like okay. Front that dignity deal anymore and so I'm hoping leisurely poor outcomes but we know that we've had worldwide for point eight million cases three hundred nineteen thousand deaths. We've crossed over the ninety thousand deaths in the United States here We found out in terms of updates that Madonna had developed a vaccine. That looks very promising. Able develop antibodies. So hopefully some good news on that front office threatened to pull the on the funding from the World Health Organization. They don't with what he thinks are major changes in thirty days. So we'll see how that affects things and of course in a very odd story Trump is now taking hydroxy chloroquine every day as a preventive measure linked to talk to Eric about that. Of course guys. We have a great show free today. We're talking to Georgia open too early. We're talking health and politics with the honorable Georgia. State Rep Eric. Thomas and burn her in right now wants to talk about that was quite the odd on user. Who THINK ABOUT IT? Yeah you know. I personally won't believe it until I see it because I know prior. He was saying that we should use. Disinfectant take disinfect. Jest it and I'm pretty sure he wasn't ingesting clorox. Yeah a little bit worse. People Online and even speculated what is he telling the truth about it but his came out with a letter saying that they decided to arrive at that decision together. I think the reason why they decided to publicize that was because he recently was at camp. David David so he's you know being seen traveling so he probably wanted to put something out there to be like. Hey I'm traveling but I being cautious when all not supposed to be traveling. I'm pretty sure he could do a meeting at the White House and not have to travel to Camp David. We'll see what happens with that but I'm hopefully. We'll get Erica in soon but we do know that we have an update on the Georgia numbers. You talked about overall thirty. Eight thousand over thirty thousand cases in about sixteen hundred deaths in Georgia. Looks like we got Erica in a little bit sideways. Who Make It work right now. At least in my view ears. Yeah if you can twist in just one way half away so three sixty maybe one eighty there you go all people driving high but most important and is that you're making great laws and having a voice for the community here in Georgia. Not how well you can work and honestly the ability that we have to zoom to do this. It's like a blessing so we'll take any we can get it. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you how are you doing? I'm doing great. I'm doing great. Thanks so much for having me on. Thank you so much shop so much foul and you know. I'm excited to be able to do these things from home. You're not rushing through a studio. You're not rushing off you know so it's great isn't in. How are you doing his Eric? Thomas Person Coping with the pandemic not. The politician with the person who are mentally physically is. Do you have an hour to? It's it's different for me Avenue born and trying to kind of install in my newborn and my nine year old. That Mommy's at work even though Mommy at home like she's crawling here every five minutes. She's got her diaper change every two minutes. You know my colleague via We have leadership call time. I always say like oh. She is like she makes sure that he's GonNa Resume Hall. Tried to battle without between having them giving them the right attention and then trying to make sure that we're about to go back to the capital and you. We have a huge budget of that. We're going to have to slash in half and then coming on every day and I'm trying to combat. Whatever he's saying is that I can do it in my us. How are you feeling about going back to the capital? Are they're going to be different behaviors? That are taking place. Are you going to be sitting six feet apart from your seat? May or are you going to be in different rooms in the council over is is talking to the dean of the House. We had the Dana. Because he's been there for thirty five over thirty years He's been a house representatives and he was taking the poll to see how many people are actually gonNA come back with some people. Won't you know you've got some people had cancer and different things and A lot of people that are reckless. You know the other side at a reckless. I sit next to in on. I love him to death. Met Girls Learn. He's running for Congress right now he's He's been deemed the most conservative Republican in Georgia. And I know he's not gonNA wear masks. I'll I'll I know I know he's back where math I know. He's because pretend this is not really real in our last day of session and got chills not to come because the pandemic was there a new Not to go but five senators got infected by one person. One person came to to to the job had got Head got tested on Saturday was waiting on his test was also Senator Fran and each. I was reading on his test. Results found out on Monday after he left the capital. Inari infected Numerous senator. So you know it's a scary thing. They're taking some precautions. There said there on a fog in our offices three or four times a week and we've got fourteen additional janitorial staff but I just don't think it's enough you know. They said they're not going to force anyone to mass and Michael. Knol require mass. I'm to warn the capital and the public are you know is a public place. You can't tell the public that they're not able to be there and I wouldn't tell them they're able to either. However I think that need to take the proper precautions so I'm very scared about that but I will be there will with maybe with the has met. I'm not sure. And we know that George so important at least in terms of up because when that first batch of data as to what's happening but there was a little bit of controversy because of these graphs that were released that seemed to kind of put the the state of infections out of chronological order in It looked as though there was a decline. There might not have been quite the declined that we're seeing. Can we trust the transparency now from the state from George? Brian Kemp in terms of going forward. Because we really do need is to be accurate to determine our level behavior. Yes yes you know. They're they're saying said men lie when belie- but numbers don't lie and you know the craziest thing is that these numbers are not going down astronomically. You know not had a fourteen day decline. Even the White House Agree with trump on a lot of things but they said you know Gorge Open backup in phase. One need to have a fourteen day decline and it's too much too soon we did. We did not see a fourteen day decline a we opened up. I think that We open backed up prematurely. But I think a lot of the reason is because of you know a lot of the Republican base. I mean it's it's out there. You gotta look and see it. You don't have to have a flashlight to see how angry they are. You don't reopen. Look you know you see they. They came to the capital with with their guns. Tote it and ready to to rally because you know. They didn't want to reopen and I'm. I'm pretty sure that same thing would have happened if you didn't make that decision and I'm not saying that that's good enough reason to put our lives endangered. But that's his base. And that's what. He's basing his things off oven. There was one of my senators that said you know the same things he did. He was actually infected with with a covert nineteen with by one of the senators but he said and I quote That one local business is equivalent to one lice. So up a local business. A local business loses their business. It's equivalent to losing alive so for for him say that they've yes. Tom Sawyer for him to say that Been you can understand where I am with my colleagues. And how they feel about Georgia reopening because he made it he is not at the top of list for for their party and I talk a lot about their party but I'm GONNA say about their party because some people in the party don't feel that waste but but for the top top leadership that are trying to reopen us. In reopening gyms and in restaurants. The restaurants are packed. Shock that Mark Hat Graham. Their acts out people are jamming. I imagine being on a restaurant is somebody you got you with. Yeah for pets out. Let me tell you. I went to the grocery store yesterday. Me and my husband. We both have our masks on and we were going down one aisle and there was a woman in front of us and the smell of the. I'll forget what I'll it was. But it had like a strong smell.

"Defending freedom Georgia state representative Erica Thomas as you'll hear in a moment claims a man in line at Publix berated her for having too many items in the line set aside for just a few then he allegedly told her go back where you came from only a few weeks ago that line would not it may news but due to the attention that line received after controversial Donald Trump tweak it is now considered overtly racist Mike Gallagher address the melee on this program earlier this week before we get to that a new development came just after Gallagher's program Publix employee came forward and claimed not only did the man never say that to Erica Thomas but Thomas said that to the man angrily and repeatedly which makes her emotional announcement all the more troublesome here's my calendar a Georgia state representative named Erica Thomas tearfully claimed on Facebook that a white man in a grocery store told her to go back where you came from but that didn't turn out the way she intended because she held a press conference where she was telling reporters this white man had verbally accosted her and of course she's blaming trunk because the chance is still what the media can give up on their still back on the chair last week from north Carolina's ancient history but they want to pin that on president trump and they're going to blame him and he's telling people of color to go back to the country they came from blah blah blah show while she's I guess while she was holding a press conference the white man in question interrupted the press conference is that right latch and in fact said that I'm actually a Cuban American Democrat and I didn't tell you to go back to where you came from because of anything to do with politics I was irritated that you brought a gazillion items to the checkout lane the express checkout lane your way over your limit and by the way side bar don't you hate it when people do his shoulder Dogana knowing so this guy apparently got it with her she turned into this big political thing she hears the flip side of all the the bomb racist bombs that people drop everywhere racist racist he's a racist racist stuff like this happens apparently is false here's the original thank you for your interest in the Atlanta area or anywhere in Georgia maybe you know the story I mean here's the original post on Facebook this is cut number eight here's a state representative Erica Thomas making the claim this emotional accusation but she and her little daughter were just minding their own business in a grocery store when the rule racist white man came calling I decided to go live I'm very upset people are getting really out of control is what white privilege the grocery store the eldest of ten out of the list yes I have fifteen items but I'm not pregnant hello what what may come to me is that is so it would all be up a lazy that's correct he says so bad I'm sorry because the NB one it please wait while we this is what we do I such a painful thing to listen to you just your heart goes out to her why would some man say such terrible things to her except apparently he didn't so here's the press conference that was on I think Friday and Saturday of course the reporters are swooping around her swooping down on this story because nothing screams national headline better than a white man be ready in a black state representative if the local grocery store so she's holding a press conference on I guess the guy interruption the press coverage he winds up showing up what was your cut nine looks like before I call the police everybody something when you see this so she's trying to shut him down he shows up just to tell his side of the storage her hand in front of his face she's mad because he's getting his five minutes of fame one of course she was enjoying her five minutes of fame this is my press conference I don't want the guy to come one accusing of doing this terrible thing to show up well he did show up and then her story starts done Ravel because reporters are watching this exchange of listing what the guy had to say and then they started to say wait a minute maybe this didn't occur quite the way

want to say he said go back to your country so she changed are out a journalist said to her you don't remember exactly what he said and that's when she started to home in a home and a home and home on a so you know I don't know I mean people are at each other's throats literally and figuratively people are tense people are upset it just seems to me that we do have to stand firm against phony cries of racism coming up who would you rather have your children entrusted to black conservative or a white leftist more on the subject of race Dennis Prager in the final segment of the town all review

"L. E. S. so this Georgia state representative Erica. Thomas admits almost immediately once she got off her lawyers cellphone footage that she tweeted out once. She's doing an interview with the media they say so he hold on. You're telling me that this white man in the grocery store said go back to where you come from. Did that really happen representative Thomas. Here's what she says say he said go back. You know all those types of words. I don't want to say he's he said go back to your country or k. from but he was making those types of references is what I remember hold on. Wait wait wait those types of words. What what do you mean types of words? He either said go back to to where you came from or go back to your country or go back to Africa or go or he did. We mean types of words. What's what's a word that's type of word like go about toaster? They've got they both have oh are they. The similar types of words. What do you mean types of? It's very vague right and then she backs off and even further she goes. I'm not going to say that he said go back. You just said you said it in teary eyed video that your lawyer shot that you tweeted out obviously for political game so she backs off at right because it it just seems like it was too good to be true. This shows why we should all treat these claims of of hate experiences and hate speech and hate this and hate that with a grain of salt then incredibly C._B._S.. Forty six the local C._B._S.. Affiliate in this area gets both of these people the man who allegedly told her to go back home and this representative Erica Thomas gets them together in a parking lot to hash out what really happened opened in what it turns out is the guy actually isn't white at all and he's not a trump supporter and he's not a Republican. He's actually a Hispanic Liberal Democrat and he contradicts her narrative reversed narrative events. I got it's not her second narrative of events. He gives what he says is the real story on camera with Erica Thomas. Here's what he says black rounded any woman that's out there. That's nine months pregnant and a white men comfort to you a 'cause. I what I don't care what it calls you celebrate facing that degraded me a berate me and I'm not applying no. I'm not. I'm standing right in front of you. If you know how you made me feel yesterday I'm Hispanic. I don't care what she thinks. He's doing it for political purposes period like I said earlier I'm a Democrat I will vote Democrat the rest of my life okay so the call me what she wants to believe for her political political purposes to make it Black White Brown or whatever is so untrue so I looked into this a little bit because look the guy could be lying. Maybe he's lying about being Hispanic he he certainly could pass a white guy but he could also he looks is kind of Hispanic to. I don't who knows maybe he's lying about. Being a Democrat. Maybe turns out no if you look at his social media history. He's a Democrat just last week. He was defending the squad A._O.. See ianna Presley Ilhan Omar and Rashied Ali. He was actually defending Omar and Omar is at the center of this this whole non traversee because Omar was the the object of the go back home chance centre-back chance the narrative explodes here. She is the Jussie smollet of this week. There's going to be another Jussie smollet next week. There's going to be another Jussie smollet after that because the left is living in a hoax fantasyland this guy whatever he said to re might have called her a lot of names names but what it seems like he didn't say go back home. He's a Liberal Democrat. He's Hispanic and the best part of it. All twitter is forever. The Internet is forever four years ago now Erica Thomas this representative tweeted out quote going downtown Atlanta for an event. I hope I magically bump into Jussie smollet Hashtag biggest fan.

The Atlanta rapper known as Twenty-one savage rose to fame making music about life in his city, the drug scene the shootings that took the lives of his brother and best friend and nearly killed him.

They say his parents brought him to the US when he was twelve and they overstayed their visas. Joel wicker covers music and culture in Atlanta. And I asked her about the reaction in the music world. Once the initial shock wore off people were pretty quick to rally around. I'm savage local rappers TI and killer Mike have issued statements in support of him.

And I should mention there's another situation which may or may not be in play here, which is that he was arrest. Tested in two thousand fourteen on felony drug charges. Yeah. So he was arrested and pled guilty to a felony drug charges in twenty fourteen immigration status. Didn't come out that. No. So the WSB reporter here in Atlanta who has been working on.
