Dr. Nicole Saphier on the Politicization of COVID-19
"Spectacular folks. I encourage you to go pick it up. And you have been preaching about this from the beginning How politics sadly has gotten in the way of a field of medicine. You practice dutifully your entire adult life. Explain to us the premise of the book, And I mean the obvious political interference you've seen here from the start, which which should have been just pure medical advice. Turned into a political battle. Well, Dan. I mean, it's hard to feel deja vu right now. I mean, so, here we are. We are June 2021, but all of the same issues that were being brought up a year ago. Now re emerging themselves. So let's think back. I mean, it was early or late spring where I was asked in an interview, you know? Is it a possibility that you know the virus didn't come natural spillover. And I said, You know, Yeah, There's a lot of strange occurrences that happened at the coronavirus Mecca Research eight miles from the From the, Um, wet market, So it's really we have to make sure we go into that. And when I was writing the book, I talked to a couple of high level officials and they said, you know, listen, you can't can't count out the possibility of the lab origin. And yet I was quote unquote tried to be canceled. I had CNN, an Esquire inbox, writing articles about me saying that you know, I'm spreading conspiracy theories, and I've been debunked by real experts. But then it was more than that, right. We were talking about our guests are being over counted. Hospitalizations being over counted and it just was what? It was a time of crisis where people really were struggling. It just turned into chaos, and it didn't need to be. But now, here we are again. We're starting to see counties that are changing their overall death counts and their hospitalization rates saying You know what these were over counted, and it's like, Well, hold on, guys. Jeez, like science should be a little bit more black and white,
The Biggest Mistakes People Make During Negotiations with Kwame Christian M.A. Esquire
"Would you say. Kwami is the one single most important thing that we need to know to become a better negotiator. Basically sum up your entire world in one sentence. Here i guess is what we're asking easy easy you're always negotiating that's really it. And so the name for my podcast negotiate. Anything for the reason that i want. People to recognize that they're constantly negotiating. So the definition. I like to use for negotiation. Is anytime you're in a conversation and somebody wants something and so constantly negotiating so whenever. I am doing these trainings and i ask them. When they're negotiating they always start off with family. I then friends and then people at work. And then even if it's procurement people are negotiating deals or real estate folks. Then it gets those type of external negotiations and so the people were going to negotiate with the most are the people who are closest to us and so the number one thing that people need to recognize when it comes to negotiation is that negotiation is everywhere. That's one of the biggest barriers people have is that they have low negotiation awareness. They don't know when they're negotiating and if you don't know you're negotiating then you don't know to use the skills. I love that. Because i know so many people that we talked to in. They're like well. How do i practice my negotiation. I don't get into enough situations like contractors or with business partners or with vendors. That i feel like i can practice enough and i think you just said it perfectly there. You should be practicing every day whether you're talking to your kids whether you are at a restaurant and trying to order something that might not be on the menu anytime you're talking to somebody in either side. What something. It's a great way to put that you're always negotiating to. There's always the opportunity to practice. You have to put yourself in the mindset that is negotiation absolutely and i remember i was listening to one of your episodes before i think it was on the ship. Bigger pockets episode and carol. One of the things you mentioned. Was that the simplest thing you can do to practice you. Negotiate digest practice listening. Not talking in a conversation and it's really hard to do and it's so hard that i created a challenge just for myself maybe i'll make it public something like that. But it's just the listening challenge and i remember. I have a five year old and around the holidays. My son was acting up a bit in school. And so i said you know what i'm to take him to work with me and i will bore him to death and then he will appreciate school more. My mom thought it was a horrible idea and says she started off the conversation. Just criticizing me. And i said oh. This is an opportunity to practice. Okay so for fifteen minutes straight fifteen minutes straight. i didn't say anything other than summarizing. What she said asking. If i understood correctly and then asking what else fifteen minutes straight didn't say anything and i was dying inside. I want to make it abundantly clear. So it's not easy not easy at all to do and so we got to that fifteen minute point and she's like. Are you going to say anything. I said listen. Mom i just wanna listen. I am here to just hear your perspective. What else do you want to say. And then once. I got to the point where she said nope that's it. I said okay. Would you like to hear my perspective. Sure and then. I gave my perspective. She agreed right now. If you think about that conversation if i would have started off if if i would have started off that conversation would not have gone very well right but i went through that painful process of listening for the moment because it was effective in the moment but also thinking long term. This is a practice opportunity. If i can do it in this moment it'll be a lot easier in the future. And then at the end of the conversation. I asked her for feedback. I said how did you feel during this conversation. What could i have done differently. What could've done better. I'm seriously thinking about every single conversation whether it's with my five year old my wife and my mom whoever it is as a practice opportunity because it makes those bigger than more transactional negotiations a lot easier. I want to suggest that. Everybody just hit rewind ninety seconds or one hundred twenty seconds and listen to that again because if you learn nothing else from this episode that's going to change your negotiation ability right there. That's gonna take ten times better. I heard a quote the other day. And unfortunately i can't remember who said it and so who attributed to but something along the lines of most of us when we are listening to somebody else auk were thinking most of the time about what we're going to say next as opposed to what they are saying and when we do that. We don't really get the other person's viewpoint we don't really comprehend what they're saying. We're just thinking about how we're going to argue it and how we're gonna get our point across and so what you said was so important. I do wanna go back to one thing because you had an amazing nugget in there that you kind of glossed over. But i think is super important. I'd love for you to expand on it if you don't mind but you talked about during that fifteen minute conversation with your mom. You were reiterating back to her. Your interpretation of what she was saying and it wasn't just is a time filler. Wasn't just for you to have something to say. What was your reason for. Taking the time and reiterating back to her. What you thought she was saying. It's called the empathy loop and so what you do. Is you summarize what the person says and you do by saying this. it's a really simple format. Correct me if i'm wrong but it sounds like you're saying x. y. z. Is that correct. And then you give them the opportunity to correct you and so this serves two purposes number one. It shows that you're listening and number two. It gets you points for listening. I think about it in terms of a game right where the other side is the referee. It doesn't matter if you're listening if they don't believe that you are in fact listening right and so what i do there is. I say yeah. Am i right there. And then they could either say yes or no and the added psychological bonuses. This people feel like they are in control when they have the opportunity to correct you. Think about it as a child and a parent who's correcting in school teacher versus student. Who's correcting who right. And so i'm saying you correctly. I'm giving you the power in this. Interaction makes them feel safer. Makes them trust you more and makes them feel more in control. Even though i'm not really conceding anything by doing that.
"esquire" Discussed on Hospitality Forward
"In this episode the Chat Would Jeff Gordon. Food, entrance editor of Esquire magazine, and they can contribute to the up time. Jeff is also the author of Hungary which chronicles the four years he spent traveling with the iconoclastic shut for neighborhoods F. of Noma, which was named the best restaurants in the world four times by the world's fifty best restaurants. Hi Jeff. Hi. How are you Hannah? Welcome to the show and thank you so much about joining us today. It's a nice thing. It's nice to see people. You know when you're stuck at home all the time even through this digital vistas. Yes. Nice. To see familiar faces we'll take it. We'll take him. So. Jeff. We've been locked down the last few months we have. What do you miss the most people I missed community it sort of boils down to this meal that my wife and I had at Veronica a new Stephen Starr restaurant. In the Flatiron district in kind of cool photography museum. As Lord and I were leaving this restaurant Veronica had a very narrow bar and as we were leaving the bar, I saw my friend David Littman. We saw Simon Kim from Coke Restaurant. We saw the Alana and it was so New York you know it was just the Oil Hey What's up you know it was that sense of. Community and comradeship that you feel in Hot Restaurant New York on certain nights you know and it's just. It's just a fun. Feeling is sort of why I came to New York in the first place from California. Twenty five years ago hard to believe. I missed that I find that. That's what's really exciting at restaurants whether they're casual places or fancy places or new places or old places. It's that sense of like all where here we're here together in New York. Coming from all different backgrounds and we're having a night out you know does that make sense? Yes and you know the failings neutral and our community, our chefs and bartenders, and our restaurant and bar. Owners Day Missing Youtube. We can't. You know actually this is interesting. Last week was the week that Lauren and I returned to restaurants obviously these were outdoor eatings dining spaces in places where they were very strict about the protocol of observing. Social distancing people wearing masks and everything. But as a recorder, I felt like I should experience this as as a person who writes about the food saying I really felt it was my duty to see what that will dot felt like you know. I don't know if it's something I feel doing out night after night. Putting myself at risk putting other people at risk. But I you know I did feel like as a journalist sending to see. So we went to. La-, crocodile in Brooklyn in Williamsburg. Just spectacular I mean not to go to restaurant for months and then to go to crocodile Oh my God, we felt so lucky that I sip of the vesper was like Ambrosia and then We went up to a place goldstone acres farm, which is in Connecticut. Stunning to Connecticut Near. Mystic. Jayme James Wayman really talented really cut a trail-blazing. Shafir. Deserves more recognition and he and his team were doing they have this. You know they have all these different restaurants like engine room, voice turf club and stuff, and they were basically doing voice ter- club pop up. But. It would just felt so glorious you know and then we went God lobster rolls the next morning in No Way I think you call it knowing Connecticut at a place called. It's like a famous place there. I'm rambling but I'll tell you this. I felt I felt really safe in each place I don't feel like there was. A chance of exposure. I, feel more anxious at going to the supermarket. I'm getting I'm getting hungry just hearing your always tres or the lobster I'm in like getting hungry. So just Jeff, do you think any of these new ideas? These new ways that restaurants are coping are going to survive into the future postcode? Yes. That what we're seeing is what happens whenever creative people are put into a corner we're seeing innovation people have to innovate to survive man that's another reason I wanted to try to go to some of these places I want support. These restaurants are want to support these create people I frankly just love you know I support the best much as I can with takeout. But like I can live close to Blue Hill at stone barns. You know Dan Barber's place I. Mean it's one of the best restaurants in the world is fifteen minutes away from me here. So it's so cool to see what they're doing with these boxes. On Friday, we're actually going to pick up a beary box with all these that. We're getting a very box. We get the flower box once the red box, the The fisheries box was really interesting. 'cause you think how are they gonNA do wasters like they? They said, we have fresh oysters in we will shut them for you, and then you take them home and I was like that does sound safe like how's that GonNa work? Well, what turns out they? They opened them they sorta half open them, and then they closed them with a rubber band. So each oyster at a rubber band. Yeah. They do advise you eat on that night you know. So we get home, put them in the fridge and eat them a few hours later, Popham Open put on the media net. My great he's is so fresh and it was so good at wasters again because. Frankly I'm not that good shocking. It's not something we're going to do it all so. But. What's really inspiring is just seeing chefs and their teams bring that creativity to the table. It's it's the food. You're so grateful the to eat again it's delicious kind of food that you like I'm not going to cook at home I can't cook like this home, but it's more than just seeing their minds at work seeing the forum that hospitality takes like the way they care about us. You know what I mean. I've I've seen so many different manifestations of this. Kind of care and love that they put into these boxes and delivery services and take out, and that's half of it. That's half of the nourishment. Sanel Jeff We noticed that you've written a lot more articles for last four months old. That's funny. You really paid attention. Me Only read them all again. So how this situation has changed what you are writing about? Yeah. That's a great question. That's very perceptive. I mean, my role at esquire has changed and it it changed organically like nobody told me to write more or whatever might title is food and drinks editor. Now, this is a good forum in which to. This because I have to explain this probably four times forty times a day I mean I have to in so many emails I'm not really an editor. Okay just so everyone knows it's just kind of a nice title. I mean I do play a little bit of an editing role in terms of scouting out talent in helping to commission pieces is I've just got a freelance writer actually I mean. So I played this role and almost a brand ambassador role for the magazine, but I can't actually assign anything. So when people come to me and they say you know. We think you should cover this I mean this whole process that comes after that like even if I agree I go to Kevin into. My editor, he's being editor and then go to Sarah and Ben Boskovich of it's for the site. But for some reason, win win the pandemic hidden shutdowns started I start.

Curtis Sittenfeld's New Novel Brings Her From Prep to Politics
"I guess. Today is the author of the Sunday Times Bestseller American wife in which she painted a picture of an ordinary American girl a thinly disguised Laura Bush who found herself married to a president. It was long listed for the Orange Prize. As was her debut novel. Prep her other books. Include the man of my dreams sustained eligible and the acclaimed short story collection. You think it I'll say it. Her stories of appeared in the New Yorker Esquire Oprah magazine and The New York Times magazine her latest collection of stories to be published in the UK is help yourself. She's also the guest editor for the Twenty Twenty Best American short stories anthology. She lives with her family in the American Midwest. A brand new novel is rotten. And it's been described as bombshell while I couldn't agree more. This is a book that will demand. Attention Curtis Sitton fell. Welcome to meet the rices. Thank you for having me. You'll novel begins in one thousand nine hundred thousand nine. Is Hillary Rodham Graduates College? And it brings us right up-to-date in Contemporary America. But I'd like to go back to Cincinnati in one thousand nine hundred seventy five when when you were can you tell us about the second stance surrounding you alive? Oh my goodness it's funny. I'm so much in the habit of of talking about Hillary's lay right now. You'll warm familiar with that than with my own will. I'm the second of four children. I have a sister. Who's less than two years older than I am. And I would say a have not led a very personally dramatic life which might be why I'm a fiction writer instead of a memoir rest but yeah I grew up in Cincinnati. My parents are both retired but still live in Cincinnati and I have two sisters one brother my brother is actually holds elected office in Cincinnati. He's the he's a member of the city council in his third term. So so I guess. Different members of my family are interested in in politics in in different ways but I was very lucky to go to excellent schools in Cincinnati elsewhere. And I would say my family Sort of obsessive readers like we didn't it's not like we. All six sat around each of US feverishly reading a book of our own but there were lots of books in the House. We did sometimes read is a family. My mother was a librarian for a long time for you know middle school or junior high students so ages twelve and thirteen and fourteen and that strong feminist streak. That comes to your writing that being influenced by her. That's an interesting question. My parents have almost opposite personalities. From each other where. My father is very great Gary in very opinionated and my mother is you know I think she has strong opinions and viewpoints. But she's. She's not a very assertive per cent. And she's not she's not she's a very private person even even by saying this should not be. I think she'd rather that like I never talk about her. Other than you know maybe acknowledging that she exists described as relatively progressive. But you know I think there are some families where the children grow up going to protest rallies in that was not my family You'll schooling was obviously a hugely influential. In fact your first book prep which is I. Think long list for the Orange Prize loosely based on that. Would you say so? I went to a boarding school in Massachusetts. When I was I had just turned fourteen and it was sort of strange given you know the area of the country where I grew up. Which is the mid west and it was a little bit unusual to go to a sort of fancier elite boarding school on the east coast just in the sense that a lot of students who go to that school are more from that region and also the other thing is that. I was the only one of my siblings who went which I think sometimes makes people think that I must have been the most academically talented in fact. I was the least academically and by my siblings. Were all you know much more. Well rounded students like. I did well in English but I definitely struggled with other subjects so those a little bit. I feel like I certainly. It was privileged but it was also a little bit random or arbitrary that I went to boarding school and talking about coming from a different at least geographical background from the rest of the students. The story is sort of more than coming of age. It's it's more perhaps one could say it was about a study of of social class. Was that something that you found was very apparent there that it did feel different. This whole kind of I mean I think the thing that we all have this horror of being a teenager comes across in dairy well a particular field and that you didn't fit in that. I think I felt at times that I didn't fit in. Certainly I mean I would say that. It wasn't the main character in prep. Leave your experiences going to boarding school as more of a sort of class shock than I would say I did. And you know class is sort of the air. We all breathe. It's maybe especially obvious. Una Boarding School campus. But you know I think it's it's obvious everywhere you know. You can have a sort of exchange with a person like delivering a package to your house and the two of you could probably like assess each other's voices are accents and no things about each other's class or like defied that one of you is in a house receiving a package one of US delivering. The package also says things about class in our society. You know doesn't necessarily say very good things but I think the To like one yet like I was aware of class. And I don't think I was quite as much of a fish out of water as my protagonist. Although certainly I'm like erotic person was even more neurotic as a teenage you write about teenagehood again in in your next book. And I think we'll come back to that because it will say impacts on on the subject matter of Rodham but you went off to Stanford then and you studied creative writing night. You wrote the College newspaper. You registered magazine. What's being a writer? Always the the obvious career choice. Well I think writing was always really important to me and it was like from a very young age for about six or seven. I spent a lot of time reading and writing because I wanted to. I think it helped me make sense of the world and it held my attention and there weren't as many options on net. Netflix back. Then so entertain yourself a little more so definitely writing always played a huge role in my life. I don't think I grew up with the expectation that I would be a full time novelist. I think sometimes I thought I won't be a lawyer or as I got older. I thought you know maybe a social worker or an English teacher or something. I always the closer my adulthood. I think the more it seems like I would do something writing adjacent. But I just don't think anyone can count on being a fulltime writer as you know how they pay their mortgage and I mean going to someone as you did to study at the Iowa. Writer's workshop is no guarantee of coming out. The other end is a fully-fledged writer. But that does give you a better chance than most doesn't it's a huge success rate. It's a it's a wonderful program and I like I loved being there. I learned a ton but the the thing that people don't necessarily realize is not only. Can you go to an excellent writing program the Iraqis and after that you know not have a stable writing career you can be a writer who has had multiple books published in that. Still not the way. You're supporting yourself. And in fact new writing is my full time job. But that's that's an incredible privilege and it's not. It's not something I take for granted. It's very I know that it's very unusual on special. I feel
Author 'Rodham' imagines a different `Hillary'
"A young Hillary Rodham madly in love with the man she met at Yale Law School abandons her own path and heads to Arkansas slowly she starts to uncover bill Clinton's many infidelities and makes a choice what would have happened if Hillary Rodham had never married Bill Clinton a new novel by Curtis Sittenfeld imagines it just that and she joins me now to talk about it hello hello your book starts out in a familiar way but then your book takes a very different attacks from the historical timeline what what happens so in real life Bill Clinton proposed to Hillary Rodham twice and she said no both times and then he proposed a third time and she said yes and in my version she says no the third time two and she goes her own way then she initially becomes a law professor and Chicago at northwestern and then she kind of goes on from there and the book follows her over the next forty years I want to ask you before we go much further in this you know so much has been said about Hillary Clinton why did you want to write speculative fiction about her doesn't everyone is in a totally natural impulse and possibly so actually it's funny because I agree with you that so much has been written about Hillary and it was sort of in reaction to that that I think I wrote this book so in the lead up to the two thousand sixteen election I was invited to write essays about Hillary and I would decline because I felt like every possible thing there was to say about Hillary had been said she had been analyzed from every angle and then an editor at esquire magazine invited me to write a short story from Hillary's perspective and I accepted and writing that story was this kind of strange exercise where I realize that the question was not what to the American people think of Hillary Clinton but what does Hillary Clinton think of the American people and it turned out that that I had four hundred pages worth of thought to say on that so it was actually trying to sort of slipped the narrative and and instead of making her the one who's scrutinize lake giving her voice which of course is totally fictionalized voice likes she did not write this book I wrote this book and so she says no to Bill Clinton she becomes as you mention a law professor she then becomes a politician was it inevitable that she'd become a politician how did you come up with this path for her I think that in real life if she had not married Bill Clinton I'm not sure she would have led the life that I created for her in the novel and I think with a novel like this you know that the reader is bringing some opinions or expectations and I as the writer I'm kind of toying with those expectations and sometimes for filling them and sometimes defying them and I felt like it was the most interesting version and to have her enter politics but you know have no pulp click association with Bill Clinton yes except to quite a few meetings along the way I want to ask you about writing Bill Clinton the character because like the real life Bill Clinton your fictionalized bill also has a swirl of sexual misconduct allegations around him and he's also accused of sexual assault so one of the reasons that I love fiction is that I feel like getting knowledge is that people are very complex and that the same person can have very appealing qualities and very troubling qualities and I think that the plan is like the embodiment of that where I would never pretend that I can't understand his his appeal I would never you know sort of say that I can look at him with admiration and you know without feeling any sense of sort of discomfort and so and I think that a novel allows for knowledge in that like this is in an essay that's trying to either celebrate him or take him down they're both the very intertwined in our consciousness are you trying to suggest that we might consider them differently if we had to think of them as individuals yes so actually I think that one of the reasons I wrote this book is that around the time even after the two thousand and sixteen election I had this realization that school children who knew Hillary was running for president often literally didn't know that Bill Clinton existed and that kind of blew my mind where I thought you know what is what if adults saw Hillary as completely separate from dell the way that kids do and you think that that would change fundamentally the way that she's you yes I do I think I mean I'm not I'm not saying that it would sort of solve all the problems of sexism but I think it would make her have an identity much more like that of Elizabeth Warren or any clothes are I wonder if it isn't insulting to suggest that a man held Hillary Clinton back maybe this story and their story is one of a hugely successful partnership that is arguably one of the most successful in American political history it's totally possible that you're right like I'm not even sure it's either or I think it may be though Clinton held her back in some ways and probably helped her and others and the same for I think maybe she held him back in some ways or maybe didn't always do things that were in is personal or professional best interest and then in other ways she was hugely helpful like I don't I don't think it's an either or it's sort of situation for for either of them did your opinion of either bill or Hillary Clinton change after giving them the fictional treatment you know being intimately involved in sort of creating this alternate narrative for them so I was already an admirer of Hilary before I began working on the book if anything I definitely have more admiration for her in terms of toughness her perseverance her hard work there's also there's all these stories I think they are sort of in the public but they don't get that much attention about what a loyal thoughtful friend she is like often over many decades or you know like she's she's very funny which is not really part of her public image so I am fully pro
Wisconsin Supreme Court strikes down Wisconsin's stay-at-home order that closed businesses to limit spread of coronavirus
"A piece of audio from a state Supreme Court justice this was from esquire magazine in discussing the governor's order to stay at home the assistant Attorney General Colin Ross appeared to be rethinking his career choice Bradley the Supreme Court justice went full on Glenn Beck never go full on Glenn back this is what the press called full on Glenn back listen to this judge my question for you is where in the constitution to the people of Wisconsin confer a sorority on the singles on elected cabinet secretary to compel almost six million people to stay at home and close their businesses and face imprisonment if they don't comply with no input from the legislature without the consent of the people isn't it the very definition of tyranny for one person to order people to be imprisoned for going to work among other ordinarily lawful activities where does the constitution say that's permissible council one of the bravest guys and the guy who appointed her to the Supreme Court successful governor economic education healthcare reformer Scott Walker joins us now governor how are you Sir Eglin even better today because of the Supreme Court yesterday sure okay so the Supreme Court yesterday in Wisconsin struck down the stay at home order what does that mean well there was no stay so it means technically anyone anywhere in the state of Wisconsin could be opened the one caveat to that is welcome to the home rule states so there are still the ability of local jurisdiction so a handful of communities city Milwaukee city of R. we're seeing a Dane county or state capitals at all very Liberal Democrat areas there governor should be there mayors and or account executives issued similar orders to what the governor's administration will done but for everybody else it means technically any retail establishment or whatever's open last night around the state there are other places out there although and I heard the tail end of year your last segment in the end the governor I've said for weeks the government can get out of the way but ultimately the market will determine when businesses reopen when employees feel safe to come back in when the when customers ultimately come back as well but it the first step is getting the government out of the way so Z. the get the new governor the guy who I think replaced you it had issued the stay at home order he said yesterday last night on CNN this puts our state in the chaos now we have no plan no protections for the people when you have more people in a small space I don't care if it's bars restaurants or the home you're going to be able to spread the virus today thanks to the Republican legislators convinced for Supreme Court justices not to look at the law but look at their political careers I guess it's a bad day for Wisconsin because now it's the wild west commented when it's it's like it's like they've suspended common sense not only in his statement but not others across the country we see this over and over again we've been operating for nearly two months now with the threat of this coronavirus in every time anyone goes in a grocery store every time someone goes into a pharmacy every time someone goes to the hardware store every time someone shows up in a in a manufacturing plant that is deemed essential by the government they've been able to do that overwhelmingly across the country safely so to me it just defies common sense that now certainly since the so called nonessential businesses can open finally because those justices actually upheld the law they did exactly opposite what he said they actually upheld the law now does that mean the people who've been operating safe we're certainly going to go crazy and and not use the same watching the done before of course not you know here here's here's the thing first of all I think you guys had the election when every but when nobody knew what was gonna happen and with that it shows that no there was no spread to from you guys holding L. holding the election which quite honestly at the time I would have found surprising but there was no problem for holding the election yeah I guess the the governor didn't learn his lesson from that one and when did we go from a let's not overwhelm the system let's not overwhelm hospitals and doctors and the nurses let's flatten the curve to nobody's going out until everybody is safe yeah it it's it's the flat occur versus now we have to find a cure before anyone can set foot out there the logic I went back and looked two months ago yesterday I wrote a piece on Facebook about how we need to be rational we needed to follow the guidelines we probably shouldn't have Dick's sporting events or concerts for awhile so we could figure this out but that we could do these things without shutting down the economy we just had to use our common sense we had to be purposeful interactions to make sure we're safe the same is true today over two months we flatten the curve but do you still have government officials whose immediately seem like they're hiding under their beds open a guide somehow this will just go away it's not going away it's not going to change anytime soon and if we don't win this year register Connie devastate but think of all the people across America who missed out on doctor's visits in clinics and other checkups who missed out on early detection I mean this is literally a life threatening issue even when it comes to re opening the economy so governor do you really believe that these people are hiding under their beds or is there something else involved I mean there is we have to balance things and that is what a leader does he gets advice from the FAO cheese and they save Valjean just tell me about the health effects and then somebody else has to advise is didn't tell me just about the economic effects and then I have to make choices as a leader on what we do we are now looking at a group of people in Washington and it seems to be falling on party lines that they for some reason we just don't want to open the economy and no one is talking about the deadly effects of America going down the drain or going into a deep depression not only the affects financially but the effects of health and welfare all over the globe millions could die because we go down it even amazing the group that are not aligned with that don't normally reference but even a United Nations report recently just this week showed that grave concerns about massive I mean we're talking crippling poverty around the world because of the economic effects here in their point was that this will actually have a much larger devastating impact on the Taliban casualties because of malnutrition because of the depression because of suicide because of all sorts of issues I think it's a combination of summer parade and some have an agenda when I look at Nancy Pelosi's and we could talk all day about her ridiculous three trillion dollar bill that's out there but one of the things I think's been ignored about what you did put out this week is they've got a provision that would extend the federal unemployment enhanced benefits till January one that tells me Democrats believe our whole some have an agenda that they want the economy not to open until after the start of the year which conveniently happens to be after the presidential election I I got to say if you're an American not a Republican not a Democrat now to conserve not a liberal but Americans that should scare the crap idea we should be doing something about it so do you think that the American people are I mean I think that my father used to say there is no such thing as bad it doesn't it nothing is bad it's depends on how you react to it that will make it a bad thing in your life for good thing you can go to prison for robbing a bank that's not bad that is something that you could use now to reforge yourself and and become better the corona virus I think has helped a lot of people get perspective on their life it is showing us that we need family and shows us that you know this arguing back and forth with the politics is really the Washington doesn't have the power we have the power we could use this to wake up on the bill of rights etcetera etcetera or we will allow it to destroy us do you think the American people are waking up on both sides of the aisle and saying wait a minute wait a minute these essential bill of rights liberties are really important I I do have some more slowly than others but but I do think they're waking up yesterday's ruling in the Wisconsin Supreme Court was a good step in the right direction because as I said after the ruling came out you know though okay holding the rule of law is important even in an emergency it's an important event and I'm optimistic it as frustrated as I am as as challenging as times are I think about American particular country that started out in defeating the greatest military power at the time who overcame a civil war that would have torn apart just to any other country in the world you ever came to me two world wars took on nine eleven were Americans and were country based on freedom and as long as we cherish those freedoms and liberties even in times like this I have no doubt we can overcome anything the part of that means of free will and the ability to engage in free enterprise that's something that I think it's fundamentally a part of who we are it's what king Solomon talked about finding joy in your labor I often say nobody signed by my high school yearbook saying good luck becoming it depend on the government we all no matter who we can where we come from what we look like we all in our hearts we want to work we want to find join our labor we need to get the government on lease and get it out of the way so that we can go back to work and and restore
Mel Magazine co-founder Josh Schollmeyer on how the site's 'never been there to push razors'
"The idea overall behind behind mel. Whether you're a couple things one I always joke that it. It's me we're really working through some shit which is kind of trutv just trying to find my place in a very as you point out fraught world. I think when it started the idea was much more quaint Which was had come from playboy where we did? We did a lot of things on. You know bespoke axes that you could hang in your living room and a lot of consumer the endless conversation. Some of my fellow colleagues would have about Artisanal Gin and it just seemed Frankly it kind of bored me and it felt pretty out of touch and I think you know I come from a very blue collar working class background and I think there was a time with my grandfather and even my dad and uncles. Who looked at that stuff is very aspirational? And I think as time went on aspirations really changed and became more experiential than they did around certain goods also felt that that approach shamed people. You know if you didn't have the right kind of socks that matched your jacket with the right kind of barber. Somehow you were less of a you know well-heeled sophisticated urbanites and so I wanted to do something that I felt would speak much more. Fundamentally to men's lives especially not just with what was going on with social change but the fact that like the whole notion of quote. Unquote adulting and you know. When do we start to grow up and mature and you know as men in particular are faced with a lot of more fundamental things in life things? You never thought you'd worry about around your job your especially given the economic times we've been in the last decade or so. I think mental health is a super important thing I didn't see places like men's health and others really taking mental health as seriously as physical health especially around like sixty seconds to ads. I was much more interested in trying to holistically. Triangulate my need for like my ambition for career my ambition to be a good partner and father and my ambition to be something other than the guy who died at his desk. Or you know a husband or father and somebody who had his own identity and I think that that's a very tough thing to square kind of in any year. I think it's particularly tough now and I just wanted to sort of investigate the thinking the different people that I thought were doing that. An intriguing ways that maybe you could take something from okay so I mean I think everything changed with me too right. Yeah Yeah I WANNA I WANNA get to that but so that was the original idea. And I think what? You're talking about with with esquire and Chiku and a lot of the sort of traditional men's publications I mean a lot of that's business model driven right right. I mean like it's an archetype based on who they could advertise against right so I actually believe that guy never really existed. It was just that they could get style advertises. They could get auto advertisers. They could get liquor advertisers they could get studios so like. I never believed that guy existed. I believe that that guy existed to sell against right so different business model at Mel. I mean so you hooked up with with Dollar Shave Club with Michael Dubin Explain explain the model there because they think I know originally I was like. Oh Wow weird this is gonNA BE. I remember you know our digital alum John.

Man Behind the Camera
"All right so this is your second time with the pot getting our concern Osama veteran okay known at the table. No crunchy snacks crunchy snacks. No no shaking of the coffee ice loud. There are months where like weeks will go by. We're I'm like how am I literally. Don't know where your I will not have seen you for two weeks. Yeah that is basically the story of my life. Sometimes I don't even know where I am. I'll wake up hotel. Mike Oh yeah no. I'm in Appleton Wisconsin. Oh No oh now I'm in San Antonio Texas. Yeah I mean we talk about a few issues in your job in general but in our travel issue that came on May so you you shot almost the entire feature will yeah does may two thousand nineteen you were in Beirut with Andy Burgundy tracked and then you I'm just flip through the pages then you were in Taipei with Suli and also burgundy and Andy any wanted to tag on everything so that was a big photo portfolio of yours your shot in Allison Rome in spring break menu story that was just in New York yeah that was here in the building the buildings that was as basic recipe story and then you shot photos for our red sauce America package which brought you. Where did you go for this one? Oh man that was a lot. I think that was six cities L. A. L. A. Philly New Orleans. Oh my God. Where did I go? I mean you literally can't remember yeah I it was like four to five cities. I guess my first question is I think a lot of fans of yours. WanNa know like how do you end up as a staff dog for at a food magazine like whenever someone asked me about this is I'm the worst possible personnel asked because it's purely luck and circumstance stance and my only goal and still the only like hey just don't get fired and spend closing up on your six and I still get asked to come back every day and there were definitely moments early on we're Alex pollick grocer artificial photo department critic Blake. I'M GONNA kill Lau a huge mistake so you start off as an intern turn years ago yeah. That's my freshman year of college. I just wanted to do something with my life and not just go home for the summer to California and you know Oh bummer and my parents house so I wanted to find an internship and I've always had a fascination with the magazine world apply too much internships. Nobody got got back to me in like a week. Before summer started. I saw a posting for esquire magazine to be a fashion closet intern. Oh and I was like that sounds cool. That sounds way out of my reach. I am hugely under qualified for that but I'M GONNA shoot my shot and Michael Steph. who was the fashion assistant at the time got back to me? He's like when can you come in based on what oh it. Did you have background. It was the most underqualified letter ever. It was basically hey. Here's my resume. I was a lifeguard in high school. I was a high school tutor and I intern at the State House in Massachusetts in politics nothing related to magazines but I really love menswear and here's like my favorite menswear blogs and here's my favorite brands brand's. I like fashion. I can work hard and he got back to me. Can I just say that. I am a lot of times when I talked to young people who are just out of college in their writing you you know letters to inquire about a job and they read like they're written by a law firm. I'm always like learning be yourself. Be passionate sort of expose yourself so to speak but that's what's GonNa grab some somebody's attention one hundred. I think the way I showed her. The letter wasn't like the formerly hi my name's dogs home. Hey My name's Alex. I'm really excited about this. I know him not meant for this Gig but I will do whatever it takes gap and so forth and they took a chance on me and that kind of was my segue into the New York City magazine publishing world and it turns out having square on your resume. Just opens opens up a lot of doors but it was great. It was just my eighteen years old. I didn't get paid but I got to see how magazines work I've got to be on fashion shoots Justin Timberlake Lake and Ryan Gosling and wow poll like hold fourteen thousand dollar jackets and look it Nick Sullivan whose whose the editor in chief at the time Grainger David David David grange just like talk shop and like this is amazing. This is legendary and that made me really WANNA stick with it yeah very recall okay so internship at esquire. How then does that lead you to be a so after that? I was convinced that I wanted to stay in publishing. Look fashion. menswear ended up at Nylon guys Juku for a little bit complex four pins so I was very very much in that circuit as an intern just doing minimal intern work but after a couple of years I was just like this is not really what's my angle here. I don't WANNA be stylus. I don't WanNa be a fashion writer. The idea of being a photographer and fashion was just you know. I didn't even sit down. That's not going to happen so after this is my third yes approaching my third year of college. I A Internet a bunch of or apply uh-huh bunch of other internships again. Nobody got back to me. Despite actually this I'm being off and having a lot of magazines in Monroe oster I applied to like yeah a a couple of mags won't be noted but they're they're. They're okay. They just get back. I mean I saw a posting for bone apetite photo internship and I was like I know nothing nothing about food. I like pictures. I took photo classes in high school and college. So how active a photographer were you at this point. It's like I'm not active. I don't know I took a lot of fissures in high school. I had my own flicker account. I you were you were you were definitely interested. We're sitting at least and I took pictures of the school paper and stuff like that. I I was a you know an avid hobbyist as major so do you did you come in an interview like what God you the job ultimately so I went in again. It's always like a last minute. Call in showed up from Boston and I met with Jake. Ramoser are former photo assistant and he he gave me a talk. Hey so turn yeah. It looks like you've worked a lot of magazines. you have zero photo experience and you have zero food experience so you're pretty underqualified but honestly the only person here that's interviewed. That's worked at large publications so we're GonNa go with you. So that was basically it was it was Bazeley. Hey you're you've worked at reputable places so we'll hire yeah. I do think that's interesting interesting career wise like over the years. I've worked at James Beard Foundation in Time Out New York and the food's severe than G. Q. Got more fashion thing that came back to food. I was a sports writer in college like it is you can move around and I think one thing that editors employers look for is that you do have experience in in a particular field and that you know how to get stuff done that you know under you understand what the industry requires but within that sort of industry you can shoot food. You can shoot you know people. You can do all these things. You don't have to be in one lane. One hundred percent I think at the time I was taking some classes and I was also I was studying NPR print journalism at the time and I remember talking about that with Jake and he was like Oh. This is a plus because you kind of understand writing thing and photography on some level so we'll run with this so he didn't internship summer internship a year or so later. We ended up hiring you as a foot assistant no so I did this summer internship and I was like this is way better than working fashion. Everyone's so much nicer yeah yeah. It was a great time and I was like in order for me to WANNA stay in this world I can see I need to shift from fashion to food media so then I went back to Boston awesome for my senior year and as as I left Alex pollock the photodetectors times like hey we love your great. Just reach out when you're when you're graduating we can like. Maybe you keep you keep you happy. Come back so I would always send emails and I say hey just graduated like three months three or four months. I would love to come talk about a photo editor assistant role. Did you in the interim year. Were you working on shooting things. Decrease your portfolio to share with Alex to say hey I just want. I've been shooting a lot. Take a look at my stuff. Yes so thankfully because of my time I she went over to Boston magazine for my senior of college and I ended up being digital intern which basically means I was just doing every anything and everything for the website correct the king yeah yeah I remember being so proud and like twenty years old on my I've got years of intern experience. I haven't been paid for any of them but you we know I've seen some stuff like that really was my my pride enjoy worked a lot of places and they harden managed digital intern and they also gave me bill do photo take pictures and do have my own bylines socially once a lot of times when you get your foot in the door somewhere are the the brand or the magazine wherever they need people to do stuff go. You can go okay but we'll trust you. There's something trustworthy about you. Then people are all right. Go give this a shot. You'd have a DVD will keep doing it. I must really thankful that it was a web internship versus print because obviously no one's GonNa give any Interna print byline whereas it's much lower risk to teachers hey make something for lab and if it's really good we'll Polish and if not we won't publish in no one will ever or care about low budget so it was just gave me a lot more freedom and they knew that I worked at the food magazine before okay so you know how to take pictures of food. You were photo intern turn. I'm like yeah I guess I mean I. I saw Marcus Nelson. Do you like an overhead shot of something by a window so I can do that. How hard can it be yeah so I mean I I? I did it and they would. It was really cool. I mean they sent me there. Okay so we'll just have you do restaurants so they would send me like once a week in shoot for four restaurants a week and just shoot it for their website so who was giving you guidance about photos style at that point what kind of shots they wanted from the restaurants. It's nobody else really. They just assumed you knew what you were doing. The funny thing is I applied to Boston magazine to be a photo inter. I WANNA continue that path that track of being working for requirements it's but they they didn't want but then the digital department got back to me. I didn't really have communication with the magazine so it was just kind of me and our digital editor who just send me. I was like Oh this. Let's get this close enough to bone advocate and some overhead shots off light and like keep doing this and I would just bike around Boston Jason and go to a bunch of restaurants that are digital restaurant editor Chris Hughes covered and yeah it was it was really good training. It's really good training. I looking back it was really great just being able to go in and practice and shoot restaurants for relatively low risk and have that be an internship set eh great base so then I shot all these restaurants and as shooting what's in all this stuff to Alex pollick. I'm like hey portfolio.

of acts of violence and murder tied to white supremacy occurring here in our in our communities Hey we need to see action we need the words of the president have been harmful and a it's a it's unfortunate that this president has not condemned this white national of violent acts here in our communities and other communities across the country and work it's horrible that the United States Senate has not taken any action in terms of gun reform to not allow these type of weapons to reach the hands of these individuals who wants to create havoc and fear in our communities cry for us what you understand took place on Saturday morning at that Walmart well early about ten to ten thirty there were calls nine one one calls to police a good man began firing in the parking lot of Walmart a here in el Paso and he entered the though the store began shooting and firing at individuals this community is majority Latino he drove a in six hundred miles to perform these acts of violence against our community we have seen in his manifesto the level of hate toward our community in toward immigrants in this country and clearly looks like it was an intentional act throughout the day families of

several calls from families that where a freight of actually going into the hospitals and clinics because they they soulful mainly border patrol personnel and vehicles in they were actually not report

wanted the border patrol in nice actually eastern a statement that they would not enforce immigration laws these days in el Paso and I think people as they are for it's still a friend of that because he didn't before this the shooting happened people were afraid already off immigration enforcement so I think a little a little people is getting away with more comfortable obviously but is gonna take a little bit more than that in the spring we are you still receiving calls of people being afraid of reporting their injuries stool that hospitals and that though it is because so far the few that we have with the immigration do you believe that Latinos were targeted I mean clearly in this so called manifesto I mean right before the gunmen opened fire at the Walmart in el Paso he then posted this anti immigrant screed apparently attributed to him appeared online the manifesto is titled the inconvenient truth about me it reads in part quote I support the Christ Church shooter and his manifesto

take control of the local and state government of my beloved Texas changing policy to better suit their needs they will turn Texas into an instrument of a political cool which will hasten the

"Kelly Shackelford Esquire. I don't know what that means is. I mean, you're an attorney. Is that what it means? I guess sounds cool. Kelly Shackelford president and CEO of first liberty institute joins us. The first lady in case, you don't know is the largest legal firm in the nation that all they do is try to protect religious freedom in America fighting the good fight you're in the supreme court yesterday. And and I liberty was was defending something that was the statute that has been around forever. Commemorating those who lost their lives in World War One and a bunch of atheists got together and said, this is in the shape of a cross and the city is mowing the lawn around it. That's not right and wanted it removed. What happened yesterday killing? Well, it's it's kind of surreal as you say that we're even at the supreme court on this. I mean, this is the peace cross in Maryland right outside. It'd be see was put up almost one hundred years ago by mothers who lost their sons in World War One along with the American Legion. And we we at this point, you know, or the supreme court makes its decision. We're at a point where the court of appeal said it's unconstitutional after one hundred years back to tear it down. In fact, one of the judges on the appellate court said, why don't we just cut the arms off the cross won't that take care of any offense. And so I I can't even believe we're in this battle. But I think it might be something that you could turn something really bad into good. We'll see there's there's a an approach Glenn has been used now for many decades by the supreme court created chaos in this area belong the establishment clause. Respecting south religion. It's called the lemon test lemon testify and the lemon test has no there's there's no parameters right on the lemon test. We don't really know. What that even means? Do we? They added to it and part of the test. Now is that if a if a person in a community where to walk by a memorial, and they were to see that it's religious and it made it feel like an outsider in the community, and that's a violation of costs. What? And so it's gonna be it's what's called the offended observer gets to bring a lawsuit. And it's like Justice course, yesterday made clear he said. Allowed is in any area of a wall. Somebody to come forward and say, they're offended, and therefore they have a right to, you know, bring lawsuits under the constitution because they're offended. But that's where we are with this. They they're group of people a small group of people that don't want this memorial. And so they want to tear it down. And so again, bad news is what happened below good news is we have a shot here. And there was a lot of discussion about this yesterday. And this was our goal to get rid of this bad lemon test that has created so much trouble in our country. And really it's created hostility to religion, which is not what the founders ever wanted. Right. So why do you think that this went so well yesterday? Well, I think it's clear that there are some people would say there might even be up to seven justices who agree that. There's nothing wrong with this memorial. Again, it the facts are so solid in this case. I mean, the reason the cross was you mean, they're trying to say, well, they use the cross because they're supporting one religion over another. They're they're doing all this stuff. The cross was using you could get look at any history. You go back at World War One millions of young men died, and they were they were putting them in graves overseas so quickly, and they were just slapping across in front of everybody just to make sure they knew there was a person and the pictures that came back row after row after row across as far as you can see points written about this and everything else. So that was the universe symbol. They picked to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. So the idea of tearing down this memorial after a hundred years would just be a disgrace. And it would be unfathomable. And I think the court realizes that. So I think the only issue. That is coming out of this is going to be are they gonna change the test this test that's been used to kinda create these attacks on religious symbols and things around the country. And there were a number of justices, including chief Justice who made clear that this thing is a mess. This task Lynn. Something they use it when they want to knock something down. But then they nor the test completely when they have to hold something that the founders clearly thought was okay. So there was a case just a few years ago about you have prayer to open city council meetings, the founders had prayer to open their meetings paid a chaplain. And so they couldn't say that that's unconstitutional under the establish cost. But if they'd applied the lemon test that it had to strike it on. So they didn't apply the test. No, they talked about this yesterday and said this is I mean, we can do what we wanted to scream court. But we're forcing all the lower courts. I have no idea what the law is what things to apply, and I think they know they need to do something. And I I think there's a really good shot that they're gonna get rid of what has created a really a catastrophe in this area the law Kelly, if I'm not mistaken the way the court is ruling on things I is there is a change. In the court. And is it just the addition of of Gorsuch? That is happening because there seems to be when it comes to religion that the supreme court is starting to define those boundaries a little bit clearer and actually protect him. We had several cases this this session where they are protecting religious liberty. There's some huge signals coming out when this case is one of them. I think we now have five justices for the first time, maybe since the nineteen twenties who actually believe in following the written word in the constitution. Holy cow dad's gonna result and things changing because they're going to say it's not about what we want. It's about what the framers said what the constitution said what it means. And I think when it comes to religious freedom, we have five better really pretty solid on religious freedom. I think cavenaugh is a guy who I mean, he don't Cavanaugh a young attorney donated his time on a case with me. Almost twenty years ago. He's been committed to religious freedom is a light Andrew stands it. And I think the same about Roberts who's considered a swing vote a lot of time. So I think we're going to start to see some clarity. And some good decisions come out. We're talking about the establishment clause. We have another case the coach Kennedy case the coach got fired for going to a knee after the football game. Twenty minutes. I'll at prayer. Yeah. They issued a statement the for conservative justices last month on that case that sent shock waves throughout the country. And that is at the end of the decision that they had laid down. They they actually said, you know, we've noticed that you brought her free speech claim I not a free exercise of religion claim. And they said that might be because of this decision which is called the Smith decision that has created such damage to the free exercise of religion. And they said, but we haven't been asked to overturn that yet. So that's not a subtle hint that they're ready to go. After some of these really bad cases that are really hurt religious freedom for the last you know, four or five decades and so both on the establish our clause and the free exercise clause. Both the religion clauses. We're really excited, you know. It's amazing Kelly. The the press is so folk. Focused on Donald Trump. I mean, he is the ultimate red herring. No comment on his hair. He he really is. I mean, they they are so focused on him that you could go in and say every baby gets an automatic weapon through the supreme court or through congress. And I don't think that the press would even focus on it because they're so focused on him. We we feel like we're losing the battles almost every day because we see these these huge leaps of power for the left that we're not seeing or hearing. 'cause nobody's reporting on these victories in the court, and what's really happening in the court. It's game. Changing. Isn't it? It is. I can't I can't agree with you more. This is I been doing religious freedom work my entire life, and, you know, been working hard, and I feel like everything we've all been working for the last thirty years is beginning to happen and not in small ways. And I think this is this is going to be a huge return of power to the people getting the government out of sort of being the the religious monuments police and the. Part of things you're talking about just from the case yesterday. You think of all the, you know, the minorities that had been so you can't put that minora up in public around Hanukkah or you can't do the the the tippety seen or you. Can't you can't have that ten commandments or I mean, you oh my gosh. You've got a steeple on your city seal, you know. And so all that stuff is ridiculous. If you're talking to founders, and I think I mean, this case could end all of that. And it'll affect much more. But that's just real life things that people are used to seeing. So I think both the house and the free exercise clause. There's great hope went to wait and see what the decisions are. But I think it's gonna be a really I mean, we're talking about decades changing sort of the hinge point of history like we've had decades of some really bad law. And I think we're about to move towards some decades of some really good law religious freedom and the first amendment. I will tell you that David Barton told me that he said. Glenn if the things come out the way, they're feeling he said by the end of this session. He said we may have more religious freedom than any time since the founding of the nation. He said they they've been screwing it up for so long. He said, I think we're going back to the way things were originally intended. Would you agree with that? Or is that too far? I know I do it's kinda it's kind of silly. You know, most nonprofit groups like our legal firm have a vision statement and kind of pie in the sky. You know, if if this happens, this would be nirvana right and ours is to return the country to the religious freedom. That was the vision of our founders. I never thought I would see it in my lifetime. But I think that's now what we're going to see because we actually had justices the want of what the constitution and the founders were doing, and and that's just unique. We haven't. Seen that in our wife. And so I think we're going to start to see decisions go back to what that founding vision was and the religious freedom that this country is built on. And I think that's only going to be a blessing for the country in the future of everything we do. Wow. Kelly. Thank you so much. Thank you for the hard work that you put in for so long chief counsel. I liberty institute. If you want to be involved you want to donate. I mean, they are doing amazing work right now, I liberty dot org. I liberty dot org. Kelly. Thank you so much.

Bernie Sanders joins growing Democratic field of 2020 candidates
"Let us finally moved today back to the US where vets. Trinh Senator Bernie Sanders has officially announced his second US presidential bid the seventy seven year olds. Vermont Senator became a political star back in two thousand sixteen when he narrowly lost a Hillary Clinton for the democratic nomination. He declared to his supporters. It was time to complete the quote political revolution. He started with many candidates in the field could Sanders stand out as he did back in two thousand sixteen or will it further splinter the Democrats who will need a United front to unseat Trump. Good move for Sanders or good move bad move for the Democrats. The last time I was on a said this, and I'll say it again for the next eight months, the most important thing, the Democrats should be doing is devoting all their energy to removing the clear and present danger. That's in the White House. The democrat who leads that. And is an if they're successful at it will be the nominee for president all of these people coming out of the woodwork. Now, they do it primarily because they're encouraged by their media advisers to do it because they're going to get money to get media. The media loves it because it gives them a horse race every day on days when there's really no news happening in Washington because it's grid-locked. So that's one part of the argument. The second thing to say is that currently leading the field by the most recent polling, Joe Biden, former vice president and Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden will be passed seventy five in twenty twenty Bernie will be seventy nine and I'm I'm going to make a bold prediction that neither man will be the nominee of the democratic morning. It's I mean, they may do well at the in the early stages because of name recognition, but it's not going to happen. The thing that Bernie Sanders did and which makes him a really important figure in American politics last five years is that he in challenging Hillary Clinton from what we would call the left. He completely redefined what was politically possible in America. And you know, it is no surprise that. The most well known new politician, America Alexandria. Oh, Cossio Cortez is actually approaches. Shea of Bernie her she got elected in New York City, basically running on his platform all over the country, young younger candidates, and particularly younger women have been braced this idea of democratic socialism. That was Bernie the question is having defined the territory. This is a terrific phrase from political blogger for Esquire Charlie Pierce today. Days having defined the territory does he own the real estate? He does not. And I don't think he will get to the finish line. And because he's a tough old Brooklyn guy. He's even though he's from Vermont. Now, it tough old Brooklyn guy. He won't go gracefully. But I don't see him getting the votes in the end he will have to consolidate behind a more progressive person. And although a lot of feminists blame him for, you know, attacking Hillary Clinton. My guess is he will end up consolidating behind one of the more prominent women who are who have already declared, and who are competent, and who could do very well in twenty twenty

But guess what if your site architecture is terrible or non-existent, you've just wasted valuable time and money if you have been writing content and beating your head against the wall. You may have an awesome distribution strategy as I mentioned, but you could also have a website architecture issue on your hands. You're not aware of because you're not searching for the right items. Now, I know that some of this. I'm talking to. Solo practitioners that this is your your first your first website or your first design. But I I don't know if this is gonna come for you or not there are a bunch of sites with this issue. There's one side that we worked on the been around since nineteen ninety five and when you start looking at the numerous chains they went through now not gonna dig into all that today, but bottom line, they had seven different website changes to Urals names from vanity to finally an actual website with their own law firm's name on it. So there are so many issues, but one of the things that stood out to me was not once was the website architecture done to reckless. They're using WordPress. Cms in the back end. You're you're looking at all this stuff and all these plug is going did no one's just simply start with architecture. But the technical SEO piece. That's this is what I mean. When I'm when I'm referring to those earlier episodes calling garbage. This has to be one of those things that's checked even if someone comes to me, and and and they're they're looking for, you know, all these great things that we can do with SEO. Okay. That's fine. Whatever I still have to go back and look at what's there because if we start creating content that's a waste of money if the site is not structured properly. So again, some of your falling for salesman. This sound great. But most of them cannot articulate the required foundation for your website to be built upon they see the sale I've mentioned this previously. You're an easy sale because you don't want to get back into a corner. So as long as the salesman can give just enough info that you know, that you're comfortable in your knowledge base. That they can sell you on the rest of what they may. Or may not do. How would you know to go check this again owning your own properties being able to see what's actually going on the back end. So that you can take a look yourself and say, okay, hold on. I'm not gonna make her manager guys.

Remember back in EPA sewed one we discussed the value of your content and the legal community. Specifically, the definition of YM wa L your money your life pages. And how this content is specific the standards are specific for the legal services community, finance Otis's and a healthcare community. Well, today, we're going to discuss how even the best content on the best looking website will not matter without the proper site architecture place. So before we get started here the areas that we are going to cover. We're going to define what website architecture is we're going to. Out. How many of you have been searching for this exact topic? You just have been putting in the wrong. Search terms rows are gonna touch on. Why website architecture is the foundation to your content marketing, then we're gonna finish it out. I'm gonna give you two three resources regarding technical application. They're gonna come from hub spot and MAs. They're going to discuss internal linking and the three click rule with a graphic. That's going to help us understand more of how website architecture should look and not only feel for your user experience and your search engine experience. So let's start with defining website structure, what is websites rector website architecture. This refers to the way that a website is structured in terms of the usability and internalisation for not only Google crawlers. But most importantly, your users have you ever been to a website you clicking around trying to find some me. In his just a few. There's no structure there's no flow most of your websites and the legal community are running into this problem Joe to homepage and see a bunch of drop downs for for pieces that take me here, and they're all over the place. But there's really no flow. When I go look at the architecture when I go and look at the back end, you can tell very clearly from the site links excuse from the site maps that there's very little there in the way of architecture. Okay. So this is actually not your fault when I'm looking around, and when I started years ago when I started I was I was doing some of the same searches that you may be performing if your sole propriety just trying to figure out why this is not working. What is it that? I missing I fell victim to this. When I was searched for term such as how to build on how to set up a website similar searches. And here's the problem with those every piece of content that comes out makes it sound easy by our webs. Site and typically, that's his his putting the content out persons. Our website in half an hour, you'll be up and running and business start flooding in. You know, like, I do if you have tried this on your own that is not the case. Those of you that have already gone onto hire someone you knew that already you've tried it. You've been there done that you set the website up, and you just sitting around going, okay? Who are the coming? This is not one of those if they build it. They will come moments. There's a lot of work that goes in on the back end for proper website architecture and structure, so even if you have outstanding content pieces of regional pieces of content, whether it's video infographics blog content. Whatever the case may be podcast, even if your site is not structured properly, can you get away with some distribution strategies? Sure. But at the end of the day, even those those distribution strategies that could potentially be working. Well, you're missing something. In that something is typically website architecture.

You can make separate practitioner listings for your law firm, again, we're gonna get into to that the strength and power of that in a later episode. But for right now, let's just go to one listing. All right. Let's go to your main listening. Click on that location. Lefthand side. I want you to go to info under info less scroll down a little bit. Until you get to the globe. You're gonna see website and appointment you are L on the right hand side. There's gonna be a pencil and click on that we're going to edit the euro, so less doubt paste, the URL that we just correct it. You're gonna notice there's also an appointment URL. I would highly suggest going back and creating a separate. UTM parameter four they contact or free consultation page, it can even be your homepage.

If you were to create a post here, and again, we're going to get into the detail later, but if you were to create a post here, I was suggest going back to the UTM parameter creating one that now just the medium says say GM be daily posts. So now when you are creating posters, someone maybe clicks on a learn more tab, you can tell exactly where those cliques are coming from. And if posts are working for you or not. You have to remember some of the data and Google businesses. Not accurate. Anyone's been doing this for a while. They'll tell you sometimes their data angle analytics is not match up. Once you start using UTM parameters or call tracking those two things get you a lot more data thinking my business has right now.

"Online. This is one of those headaches that I'm I've now seeing they weren't the only law firm. There are other law firms that were told don't worry about it. That's proprietary. I'm gonna give you warning right now, anyone that's telling you, something proprietary when it comes to your data and your web properties that should be a red flag period. Number three, the company was severely underperforming. But. There were charging a pretty penny. They also couldn't explain any of their process, but they made it sound good. Again. Here's were owning your own properties in understanding what it is that you're looking at and why. You need to look at these data points with your marketing team Parham portent. So the problem that we're trying to solve with this podcast. And a problem that I see in the legal marketing industry after working with a few other companies. Now is it all sounds good? Everyone's getting sold on the same thing. It sounds good. Because you're smart. And because you have an ego. Those are two things that are being used against you in your marketing. It's not a negative though. And I'm saying that because I have one also affirmative traffic control of the navy. I have a bigger than you do. So I get it. You have an ego. But here's where that gets played against you. You don't want to be made to look stupid whether in private or in public. Period, you're Arnie's or you're running the law firm office. You're running the marketing program. You do not want to be made a fool of I get. That was also my fear though, when I started out and businesses. Well, my fear was you're gonna put me in a corner that I don't know what the hell's going on here. So since I don't know, I may not understand the type of questions I need to ask you in order to get the answers that are going to help my business grill. So this is where we're going to do on this podcast as we go on. We're gonna call out some BS, and we're gonna call it out one episode at a time. I'm tired of seeing this used against some of the people that have raised me. I have again I've seen him pay for for for colleges for helping out with grandkids for whatever I have seen. What being a not only a business owner, but an attorney. Has done for our family. So I take that a little personal. So when I see marketing gurus online, especially in the legal space spew out garbage. I get frustrated. I've been in the room with the largest marketing company in the country. Competing for client. I have seen their sales process firsthand, and it is complete garbage. There was a lack of understanding and professionalism on number one. How important this is number two what your job actually is not to sell somebody and some of your getting run over by salesman. But you won't know any better. That's one of the things we're going to go over in this podcast. I get it. You didn't go to school to be a marketer. That's not my goal. My goal. Here is not to teach marketing one of my goals is to give you things to look at. So that when you and your team is sitting down with the market. You can ask better questions. You can dig into what their processes without fear of being made a fool you can have your own resources to reference you can go inspect what you expect out of that marketing team. And you're gonna stop wasting your money. Because again, I know this is gonna rub some of these guys the wrong way. I have no problem with that. Again, I've been in the room with a few companies competing for clients. There's a basic understanding or lack of understanding excuse me of the basics when it comes to marketing as some of you guys are paying the price for it. So Bulla number two said we're actually going to jump into a piece of content here. We are. Here's what we're going to get into. We're gonna get into YM. Why L your money your life? I'm gonna explain that directly from Google case. Give me one second here. This document is called the Google user Tonto guide. I'm going to put this guide in the show notes. After this episode is over. So you're going to be able to go exactly two. The show notes click on this guide. We're gonna focus on page nine bullet two point three. Okay. So if you're falling along right now to have that page up wait for me. We're gonna get there in a second. So in diving into this topic try to go back over the last seven eight years, I tried to pull up content, and it was looking at content from various sources that are presented to its Harney's. Just to get a sense of what you ought to be taught who's telling you what especially in terms of content and a lot of the things I see your flat out terrible. There are a few companies that I respect the hell out of because they're so honest and transparent forthright with the content. They put out with directing you to verify the content. They put out and I love it. But again, they're going to be some players in this industry that are doing just that they're playing around. They don't understand what it is. You're doing why you're doing it and how much of an impact your content. Your website. Your marketing message has on your local. Your

"Previous episode actually needs previous to this one. We're going to do it again, if you're getting told on a pay directory that you cannot track your URL be very wary of what's going on in that directory. Period, you can track these to link up to anything Google analytics including call tracking. Okay. So you can see the entire funnel if these are set up directly from any property or listing. That's your your real is sitting on being told otherwise that is a red flag. And I have been told I've been told we can't put UTM parameter there. Okay. Well, that's fine. We can't spend money with you period. So that's fine. You don't accept you temperatures. You're also not accepting the check again, this is one of those areas that I need you to understand your power and your value. You should be receiving. Okay. If you cannot track this is one of my rules. And I know this is rule for a few other legal marketing companies that follow him respect. If we can't track it, we're not doing it period. And you should have the same attitude if you cannot track where your marketing efforts, especially if you're using pay directories if you don't have access to track it became awful. And I'm going to is you just simply not to do it. So in the example, that we're gonna use today as I mentioned, we're going to go to Google my business scenario. Okay. So keep this in mind with Google my business. They have been expanding that platform over the last couple of years, and it is very powerful in terms of your online marketing. I have seen the the power of yoga my business where through posts whether it's through just simply listing for the main office or secondary office or practitioner listing and keep in mind, those three examples, I gave you especially the last the practitioner listing. We're going to get into examples of that in later episodes. Okay. But just know Google, my business, there will never be an issue with a UT and parameter essentially, this is a property anyway, this is one of those things that Google has out of the box. Everyone can use it. So if if everyone can use it used to be using it to track every piece of your on my marketing efforts, so how can we set these up if you are following on? Our website. You were going to very easily just be able to scroll down into the show notes under resources. We're gonna have the links there for UT and generation UTM, validation and Google my business website. So that you can very simply go into it. If you do not have access to see their show notes, for whatever reason, let's pull up Google page, and let's just type in UTM generator when UTM generator pops up the first link is going to be campaign, URL builder. Go analytics demos until let's click there. Once we come into here. You're gonna see very simple explanation. This tool allows you to easily at parameters campaign parameters euro so that you can track custom campaigns and Google analytics again, if you do not have your properties. Now, this is where the frustrations gonna set in. If you do have your properties. This is one of those tools you have to use with annual analytics, okay? If you're in house, and you have a third party data system where you have all your your data in one place. These are going to show up in those systems. We have an agency everything shows up as long as it's correct of how writing the code and validating each. So let's scroll down here. And I wanted to scroll down to the more information and examples for each parameter what we're going to do today as we're gonna focus on the first two. Okay. We're going to focus on campaign source because this is a required parameter, and then medium campaign name everything else, you can use to get more detail. But for right now, I'm talking to those those in house marketing teams, though, solo practitioner executives digest want, a basic understanding of what these parameters do if you want more detailed. This is the page keep reading into it on the left. Hand side, you're gonna have more links and and resources to get into. But we're going to scroll back up right now what I'd like to do. Let's put your website and that first box. Okay. So website euro- boss full website, your L starting with ACT PS. I'm stop right there for a second. If you do not have a TPS up. That's the problem. This is a secure website. You should have a TPS some of your rolling your eyes. Again. I look at about one hundred to one hundred twenty of these week. There are a lot of you. Do not have a steep PS. Setup. So this may not be for all of you. But there are a couple of you. That's you know. So let's go to your website the link, let's put it in the box campaign source, and here's why I want to use Google my business as an example their refer. So you're gonna see the examples there Google or newsletter so much to typing Google my business. Now, here's the thing. This is either going to be one word or you're going to use an underscore. Okay. So you can type in one word Google my business or you can type in Google underscore my underscore business. Okay. And this is going to pop out the correct variable

"I got frustrated one night. I went home. I sat down have my laptop allowed my daughter's on my arm and said, well, screw it. I'll spend fifty bucks at the time. I was just starting to read a little bit about Facebook marketing Facebook paid marketing didn't really know what it was. But I figured why not give it a go. Have nothing else to lose ready to spent X amount on marketing didn't work anyway. So anyway, I get into. Fifty dollars. I started the process on a Thursday by Monday morning. We had somewhere about twenty leads from team that next Monday team at three at the time. I replicated that process throughout the week and in doing so that really piqued my interest. We were doing again consulting for business owners at the time. And one of those things we would consult on figuring out good and bad deal. In terms of them obtaining money from other Bank or third party vendor. Through that process, though, through that time period, I could see that there was actually more value in generating leads because I was able to do it for us. And one of the things that just kept coming up in meeting after meeting was no, we need leads. I mean, this is great. We will take on X amount of debt if we could see that. We would have leads coming inbound. So then I stopped everything shut the business down. And for the next two years. I started studying and has started taking clients for free. Just so that I could learn more about the digital marketing space can get over my own fear of what I did not know about marketing now not going to knock the degrees. And all that. Yes. I learned I learned the basics of marketing the psychology of marketing, but the real time application in the digital space. I had none of it. I did not realize time anything that was going to learn in those courses in real time. Was you want to be late by the time? I went to go practice. So shutting down for two years studying on my own and taking on those clients. It was able to learn a lot my last free client with a cell phone shop and Ochsner California. At the time. They were doing around three thousand dollars a month. What's if you've ever lived in Oxford or any part of California as a business owner three to four thousand dollars a month is really? You're not really making it. You're struggling just hanging on. In working with that cell phone shop. We were able to get them up to fifteen thousand dollars a month and revenue over the next two months until we decided to separate probably about eight nine months down the line. But in the process, we were also able to shut down to competing cell phone repair shops in the area. Now. This was also a family friend. And this kind of gets back into why this is a little personal on the marketing side. Thanks for me. This August back to my dad who by the ways a lawyer has own his law firm practice for twenty five years a little brothers there. Now, he's next in line. So I have seen how marketing impacts of family of lawyers. I have seen how over the years. He's had the start stop. But he stayed the course and one of the things that we've always talked about even before I got into marketing was he was very comfortable with the eighties and early nineties marketing you put a yellow book in advance face. He can break down. What it is how it's gonna work where his numbers should be what he can expect you do that on the digital side and this era, it's a little tough. It is not because he's not smart is not because he doesn't want to know is there so much information out there, so many salesman that are. Great at their jobs. That's you wouldn't know a bad market from good marketer unless you just enough to question things. And that's again a piece of why I'm doing this podcast. So anyway, he calls me over for dinner recieving down. And he says flat out can you do this us or not, I guess, I don't know. But I need to look at some data. I need to see what it is retiring about what it is relocating at. So that's couple of days. Go by you'll want to office for sit down and start talking. When I looked at the data. A few things popped out to me one zero attribution. And I mean zero solid attribution. So they were being told one thing, but the could not verify that that one thing was actually being done number two. They didn't own their own properties their own web properties. This is going to be again, these two topics. We're gonna touch on later on in coming episodes. But I cannot stress the importance of owning your own properties online.

Content. Marketing. Lastly, I'm going to get into a preview of the first four episodes, these episodes or to set our foundation for our entire season one and two of escort marketing weekly. So let's get started. I'm going to start with a mission. I used to be scared of market, even though I went to school have may as south through the marketing classes, but I'm going to be honest. The one thing I do not remember is my marketing instructor not at all. I could tell you. I went back to my transcripts just to make sure I was in the class. I could tell you about every extractor I could tell you about Bob Sherman director finance for Nigeria. He had four my finance classes corporate, finance and accounting can tell you about zero Taylor the toughest and most respected teacher that I had joined the process and Dr joy Duran. If you've ever heard of smart goals, you've heard of Dr George Duran. He was fortunately. And mentor to me and my first instructor in academic space as a sales leader for two years. I was able to learn more from him than anyone else. But bottom line, I still could not remember anything about marketing struct, I can tell you their name until I looked at the transcript I knew it was important. But during the time, I was going through that program. I was on the sale side of the aisle. So it was our belief that we were the sharp into the sword sales ruled the world, but I was quickly able to find out that was not the case at all. I got into marketing after leaving corporate America. So it had had no five seven eight years in the corporate space, and I enjoyed every minute of again of the sales manager was a financial advisor have done it all when I went into my own company. As a business finance consultant using my financial advising background. We ended up. Just running into a wall. We ended up having clients across the country really focused on the local market, but we ended up having some some pretty big clients across the country whether it was on process improvement and their financial dealings, whether it was finding them funding. Whatever the case may be we were actually pretty good at it. But the problem that I was seeing was that we were running out of leads, and I could not get a consistent lead base. So like anyone else decided to hire somebody and up hiring young, man. He did a great sales job. He'd showed us some things that we knew we were not doing. So we ended up hiring him. Instead. During that process learned a few things a few things to hit home number one. My fear of marketing was killing us. I'm a smart guy.

ABC's ‘The Conners’ Premiered Without Roseanne. How Did It Go?
"Why this surprised me because I mean there have been some good reviews. But Neil Justin in the Star Tribune who covers the TV in media. Here's what he wrote the Connors is even better without disgraced Roseanne. Wow. ABC sitcom is heartbreaking. But also hilarious. I was surprised. Yeah. Here's what he wrote ABC game. Critics look at two episodes of the new series, but only on the condition. That they not reveal how Roseanne CONNER is no longer in the picture fine. What can be said is that the explanation seems completely natural as if the writers new last year that the character might disappear it's heartbreaking, but also hilarious. He goes on to write laughing inappropriately is what mom taught us to do says older daughter Becky in Tuesday's premier. The overshadowed cast mates Neil rights overshadowed, sometimes by Roseanne finally gets to do more than bicker. Especially the sisters. And she said that Laura he said rather Laurie Metcalf as Jackie has a scene in which Jackie edges toward like a breaking point while rearranging the kitchen and Neil says that that scene alone could earn her a fourth EMMY suites. Yeah. He writes bars contributions can't be brushed under the couch her brand of dark humor along with her insistence in Americans struggling to pay the bills should command center stage remained vital the series. The disgrace star may not be in a position to unleash one of her signature cackles, but viewers have every reason to roar. Roar and breathe a sigh of relief. So that's what Neil rights today. Four stars. I was it's interesting that Neil wrote this because last night, I wrote I think it was Vanity Fair. Esquire got together with some former writers of Roseanne from the original run and some talked. Under the condition of being anonymous and said, it was fifty fifty some said that the show they wished the show the best. And there were there were two from the original run that said, look, no matter how disgraced no matter how much you don't like her personally. It's very hard to replace a lead of a show. And you have to have this one writer was like here's the deal. It takes a certain this is almost verbatim. It takes a certain personality type to lead lead sitcom Roseanne had it and it's hard to fill that void. With an ensemble. And the writer said, I don't know if it's a he or she. But the writer said they love John John Goodman, love Laurie Metcalf and love Sara Gilbert, they said, but none of them have that X factor that can lead a show Louis Metcalf. Could do it you do. Yeah. And I feel like this back in the day Roseanne did. But not now when this rebuild came back. I thought are acting was awful me to see eye gla-. I said the same thing I thought I remember our review after the premiere of the reboot I thought Roseanne's timing which she was known for her her timing was always very natural. I think we went back that day that we talked about it on this show. I went back, and I watched two of her routines on Carson and her delivery in the standard was like she was telling us a story her her acting in the premiere last year was very stilted. It was like she was reading. It was very Rattatte her reading of the lines. It seemed like lines. I think she felt uncomfortable. Doing this whole reboot. I listened to. She was a guest on the Joe Rogan podcast. Oh, you listen to that. I listened to the whole thing. Yes. She kind of mentioned in that that you know, in terms of the in the writer's room. She wanted to have a different voice be represented. She's like, yes, you can have all of the Trump jokes all you want. But at the same time there needs to be some balance here. So she would fight for. Digs on her character voted for Trump. And so she said I want to have some kind of balance here because our people would have voted for him. Back in the Connors we represent. Yes. That's what we would have represented, or at least let's have some some play back and forth. And she said that she it was not very receptive in the writer's room. So for sure I think that that first season it was already feeling uncomfortable. And when that tweet came out, it just was okay. Let's just this is this is our time to go. I do we have to give some credit for two Roseanne for giving up her financial. Gay from an stake in the show to be able to have the character. Either the actors and everyone behind the scene continue their job that was very giving of her. Absolutely. Because if you got no reason, everybody should know the ins and outs of TV Roseanne owned, you know, owned part if not all of the rights to the key. Well, it's her. Yeah. To the rights to that character. So in order to move forward ABC demanded that Roseanne have no interest whatsoever. And I guess it's very apparent her. Name is nowhere in the credits. And you will notice if eagle-eyed viewers pay close attention to the pictures in the Connor living room. There are no pictures of Roseanne anywhere like her. They they don't even have the rights, nor do I think they wanted to use her likeness in any way, which I find fascinating. More of her side after that interview too. Watching it tonight. And that's why I'm curious to see how they do this. And where they're going to go with it. I'm sure it's gonna be really funny, but it is heartbreaking on so many levels. Yeah. What what do you feel? We don't have a lot of time. But but I didn't get to listen to this. Yeah. What is there something specifically that turned your dial a little bit to see her side a little bit more? Absolutely. Yeah. I mean, she felt she's feels very misunderstood that. You know, she she didn't mean her tweet in that way. And also that this swiftness. I mean, I remember when this happened. We were all like, yeah. Okay. That's what you get. But at the same time, I two of her tweets it was this tweet. And there was another tweet like many years ago that was kind of brought to light in the controversy of the the, you know, the current the recent tweet they got fired, but you just who the swiftness of that. And that they're just moving forward. There is some. Kind of sadness there when she was talking about it that she wishes the show. Success, but you could tell she doesn't want to be a part of it. And it's just. I I'm confused though, you you you said you started to see her side. Yeah. Just sadness that she was. She was a part of it. And that the the feel so misunderstood that. That's not met by her tweet. And Joe Rogan, you know, he's also he's he agrees with her that she's a comedian. And that you know that this is a slippery slope of one tweet or two over how long she's been on Twitter can end thing so swiftly. They had other examples of people who've said far worse things that were given. And also they were backed by their station like they used Smith A B as an example her tweet that controversy, but comedy central was behind her supporting her for it. She felt no support from ABC. Yeah. And so some good points there. I I need to listen to the interview

Yes I use hit clips you know my take on ty Cobb and all seriousness is that he got he he laughed he was the lawyer and Don Trump said I love my team I'm never going to get rid of them and he just got rid of and he got rid of COBB and my take on this is and thinking how trump thinks is you can only have one crazy mustache in the White House so you God Bolton bomb bomb bomb Iran now is national security advisor and we know Donald Trump didn't want him originally because he didn't like his facial hair and he's like then he gets in he gets in Bolton and you've seen ops facial hair it's not magnetic and so I'm sure trump was like forget the whole lies and stuff to mustaches is one too many go out cobb takeoff looks like the pringles man wow oh shit how are you epic can shrug just one yeah that was good. Meanwhile trump's treatment of the investigation is helping to obstruct justice in other countries The New York Times has reported that the Ukrainian government cease cooperating with Muller and quash its own corruption investigation of trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort shortly after the trump administration agreed to sell the country missiles and finally president trump where Rudy Giuliani a phrase which feels like a sketch for Saturday night live that got time in two thousand five the interview with Sean Hannity Sean Hannity really raking over the coals Ha Real Real Frost Nixon situation Sean Hannity's like he's innocent right and he was like wait went on television so so rudy said that the trump did reimburse Michael Cohen for one hundred thirty K. and hush money he pays a story Daniels who is performing down the street tonight in Pittsburgh really she's here she's some of these people are confused and are waiting for her to come out or are you touring together stormy is this like a thing this is literally the nightmare of the Russell right how your group on like it bill drawn loving and torment Daniels it's a double feature with excellent question Sir so rudy said all this to Sean Hannity despite repeated public declarations that trump had no idea this took place I believe we have a clip who it's not contain money no campaign finance violation so they funneled through law firm funnel through over and the president repeated Oh I didn't he did we were talking about two different things there I want to make I was talking about one hundred thirty thousand dollars payment right settlement payment which is a very regular thing for lawyers to do that was money that was paid by by his lawyer I would do out of his off firm funds or whatever just doesn't matter president reimbursed over a period of settlement said I distinctly remember that he did it on his own he did without asking look I don't know I haven't invested that so damn so I love that clip I loved hannity trying to help Rudy introduced like it's like it's like rudy was drowning and Sean right reach down into the water and I can swang you can swim I don't embarrass me I know how to swim I'm drowning I'm swallowing water for the sake of America I want Rudy Giuliani to be on television every night being unedited anything that comes to his mind I want him on Fox and friends on one on Hannity anywhere anywhere in America please give Rudy Giuliani put them we'll take put them on I two TV awards why stop there let's make it a priority Rudy Giuliani Janis glasses are like the Cape doctor strange wears they are sentenced to and they go the more damage rudy is doing the and the and the lost he is in the plot of the story is trying to tell the further excess skew that glasses become because they're trying to drag him off the set but he's like stopping glasses rescue me I'm really in trouble UH and this is the guy in charge of Cybersecurity Oh yes he's working on that he's very busy very proud very busy never forget sure soon you'll you also said there which actually serious which is going to screw the don't even more is he said I love to read you on this this week is the one week I love him so much he goes trump fired Komi because Komi and give him assurances that he was not the target of the investigation.
