This is very, very classic. Biden. These are the same people attacking me. This is that nothing is a relaxed the problem here. Is that every time somebody disagrees with what Joel Bob also, Biden says, it's somehow an attack on him. This is not an attack on you.

Why Won't GOP Leaders Condemn Gen. Milley?
"Where is lindsey graham. Where is john kent. Where are these republican leaders who ought to be full-throated condemnation of gener- general milley. Here's the here's the tucker clip in context people with oversight seemed to be on his side this morning. Tom cotton. The republican senator from arkansas came on fox and friends to talk about mark milley. Here's part of that conversation. This book raises some serious concerns. That some of the allegations seem somewhat farfetched to me. But general secretary austin are going to be testifying in front of congress and just a few days and we'll address these concerns. Don't wanna jump conclusions yet. I know he will address it and will ensure that he addresses it but this is one of those claims. Obviously that seems a little farfetched idea that in american military general is going to warn adversary if an attack is coming as you say when donald trump was never even thinking about a military attack against china. The whole thing is pretty far fetched. We don't want to jump to conclusions yet. Really what conclusions at the time. That interview took place this morning in an already been. Conclusively establish that mark milley was pushing open. Racism on the united states military that he had bragged to fellow officers about resisting. The american president quote with guns and that he had told military officials that he not. The president controlled our country's nuclear arsenal. So much more evidence. Do you need exactly. And why does no one in washington consider this a crisis. The leadership of the pentagon some of them anyway consta- through the united states seems right to me. And frankly from where. I sit senator cotton and senator graham's milk toast response to. This crisis is pretty
Larry Elder's Name Mysteriously Missing From Some California Ballots
"Election was not without fraud. There were several instances of people calling me and telling me that they tried to vote for larry elder and his name wasn't on the ballot in places like elk grove which is by sacramento down. It wasn't on the ballot. He was not on the ballot. In fact the woman that called me from riverside to report. This said that she had to write him in as a candidate and the most visible the literally the most visible challenger to nancy's nephew how is he not on the ballot. Exactly how is he not on the ballot and And what was going on to prevent him from being there. That sounds more than just a coincidence to me. There were lots of people that called and this was documented. Not just on conservative. Talk radio but in the mainstream news media that showed up to vote and they were told that they had already voted. So look this male couple of lessons to learn from this. There are silver linings. Take that is that california. Has its fightback we have recalls still percolating against people like george gascoyne are very liberal district attorney. I think california is more motivated than ever. Because we've seen how this is done. So i do think that there is some positive here. I think it is our job in talk radio to hold the gop accountable at three people on the gop yesterday against better judgment. Look i know a lot of republicans are angry with gop but you have to ask them and we have to have them on our programs holding them accountable to out what they are doing to secure our elections and every single one of them. And i had confirmation of this said that there were a lawyers deployed on the on the tab of the gop the national office of the gop throughout the state watching the vote counts. That's a good step in the right door. They were they were they. Watching the the the votes were they. Counting the votes from november. Is that why they were there. That's right there still there. You have back on november. But certainly the i think at the end of this we're gonna see that republicans were able to turn out more voters than they did when president trump was on the ballot against president biden. And so i think we can make some positive steps. We've sent a message to the rest of the country that there's pushback in california but we have to get a handle on the mail in ballots

Republican Governors Infuriated by Biden's Vaccine Mandates
"The new vaccine mandates that president biden announced last week will affect about one hundred million americans all told and while it seems that many americans agree with the president. There's also been a significant backlash with some gop. Governors vowing legal action and other top republicans calling for a public uprising. Margaret talev is managing editor for politics. At axios hi margaret hi. How striking is this reaction. We've seen especially over the past few days from republicans. The republican governors in states like florida and states like texas. They're responding to the gop base that is strikingly on the side of the the freedom not to be vaccinated the freedom to work in a place where your boss can't tell you what to do and it is that question. Mark about the most vulnerable districts for democrats that is really driving this push by republican politicians to jump all over joe biden for these mandates. The argument is that it is an issue of personal freedom or of medical choice. Of course americans who aren't comfortable with taking a shot have the right to speak out against it and have the right to resist. The question is what's the breaking point between free speech. You know civil disobedience and a threat to the nation a threat to national security violation of the law right and former president bush compared those threats to national security that you're talking about with the terrorism that took place on nine eleven at an anniversary ceremony and shanksville pennsylvania on saturday little culture overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home. But then there's disdainful pours in their disregard for human life and their determination to defile national symbols. They are children of the same foul spirit and it is our continuing duty to confront them.

"gop " Discussed on The Michael Knowles Show
"Liz cheney man. That lady is a representative of the very desiccated. Shallow ridiculous liberal wing of the party. That for i don't know the past twenty thirty years or so but has really fallen out of favor especially in beginning in two thousand sixteen and certainly through twenty twenty liz. Cheney was one of the only people on the republican side to vote to impeach president trump. even though she's in house republican leadership kevin mccarthy. Who was the republican leader in. The house has finally come out and said you know this list cheney lady. She's really making things tough. Mccarthy made a good point he said there is a responsibility. if you're going to be in leadership leaders eat last and when leaders tried to go out and not work as one team. It creates difficulties when he says leaders eat last is referring to a buffet. Line go out there and you gotta make sure all your guys are fed. I you gotta make sure you're taking care of all the people in your team but liz. Cheney doesn't do that. Because liz cheney is not really a republican and and what i mean by that i'm not just think she's a rhino this this very often overused line. What i'm saying is she doesn't care at all about the party obviously not. She didn't vote for the republican for president. I don't think she didn't twenty sixteen. She certainly didn't in twenty twenty then. She voted to impeach him. Liz cheney represents her wing of the democratic party. Call it the neo cons. That's the term usually applied to it. Meaning people who are very very much supportive of adventurism abroad american empire abroad but don't particularly care for conservative priorities at home. That group of people made up one third of the reagan coalition. You had the war hawk. Former democrat types in the reagan coalition. then you add the economic libertarians. And then you had the traditional conservatives and the religious right in there as well and for the past thirty years or so. After the cold war wouldn't this coalition has been trying to hobble along the traditional conservatives. They always cave. The religious right always caves we go along we get in line. We go along with. Say the the libertarian. Sometimes cave to particularly on foreign policy but whatever we go along we get along we go we go with the nominee and then that third group those war hawk ex-liberal neo-con whatever words. You want to use. They don't go along. The they saw candidate that they don't like namely donald trump. they're out they become never trump they vote for some egg mcmuffin candidate they in twenty twenty vote for joe biden many of them. Well then you can't be part of the coalition you can't a political coalition doesn't work that way if two constituent parts of it always give up everything for the team and then the third part the minute they don't get their way they don't go along with it then you're just not on the team. And that's the issue with liz cheney here i suspect actually the reason cheney's talking about running. Twenty twenty. four is because she knows that her chances of surviving a primary are very very low for her congressional race so she is trying to pretend like she's going to run for something else. No that isn't going to happen. Liz cheney is the past of the gop raises this question if she's the past than what is the future. What is the future of the gop and we have all. Everyone has a different sorts of answers. I've got a very basic answer. That i think is the bare minimum if the gop is to have a future if the gop is going to survive the gop needs to be the party of doing things doing things for a long time. The i know this sounds very basic. But it's something that the republican party. I think needs to here for a very long time. The gop predicated its entire identity on not doing things they took this sort of. Pseudo quasi libertarian language of you know if the government that governs best governs. Least you know the governor anytime. The government does anything. It's a taxation is theft. Whatever all these kinds of slogans the minute the government passes any laws overregulation. We gotta get rid of that. We got to cut taxes. We gotta do less and less and less. now i never was particularly coherent. Certainly isn't coherent right now. Going up against the liberal establishment that controls everything the gop vision. That will have a future. If it is to have a future is gop that does things give you an example. The montana legislature yesterday passed a bill prohibiting employers from requiring their employees to get the covid vaccine condition of employment. This is a a regulation that will be passed to create a new requirement for businesses to impede what businesses want to do this big government. If ever i saw it. And i love it. I'm really glad that the government is going in we the people or they the people of montana through their elected representatives using the government to stop businesses from doing what the business is want to do to protect the rights and liberties and traditional way of life. Of montana's that's good. That's i know. Some people who are used to the libertarian language. they're going to say I dunno regulation. i'm business. That tells them they can't do what they wanna do. That's a good thing. More regulation in this case means more freedom. More regulation in this case.

"On that i mean if you do well in like detroit philadelphia cetera. I can imagine maybe your trump you run with tim. Scott you do something. Different trump was a lot less focus on immigration and bashing latinos in two thousand twenty compared to twenty six. Eat a lot of that in the row in the twenty seven twenty nine hundred lot of that but in the actual election period less that so i almost wonder is the coalition a trump or to santa's do they sort of go with the okay. There are more minorities than we thought to this. And let's build their. Let's assume the woke white people are gone to us. And let's try to the oldest sort of working class cross racial Sure i believe what i'm saying totally but it's like if you look at the return that's what they should do. I mean i think if the gop did some actual economic populism that would be interesting. I don't think opposition to obamacare or the failure to offer any coherent alternative to obamacare helps. Gop one bit electorally for example. I'm not sure if cutting corporate tax rates helps that much electorally excites their base. A fair bit so that would be interesting. But then he kind of run into opposition from the mcconnell ryan wing of the gop. Senators are still fiscal conservatives. I i think other pets conservative second. So what a true populism. We look like i don't know i mean i do think that like yes question earlier a my hunch is that trump is somewhat sui generis. He say that we're that like Such a man of the people tripping up on a latin word. The first swede generous and at the first attempts to like detroit without trump may not succeed very much. I think tom cotton is likely to become president for example. But we'll see i mean. Obviously a lot is what trump himself wants to do if he wants to run vs kind of play a large role in playing kingmaker versus sitting on the sidelines entirely. I mean we still don't know. I think there's like a. It's not likely that. Like i think there is some chance that like once. Trump is no longer president that he gradually declines in relevance. In the same sense that like sarah palin went from a huge figure to being a pretty obscure figure trump would go from being the singular figure in american politics to a still pretty important figure. But it doesn't have the powers of the presidency and we're three years out from the primary really getting underway at some point. People might tune them out to some extent and at some point he might feel like old news and when it kind of sinks in that he's actually lost the election than i dunno one question i forgot to ask. Maybe towards the top is take this baby with a grain of salt brad. Parts gal former campaign manager who was demoted during the campaign says the the coronavirus that lost trump the election. He should have had more empathy for the situation. That americans were experiencing. We can't say no counterfactual. We only have earth one in the world of elections but in the absence of the coronavirus. Pandemic is trump a two-term president. What are the arguments for and against that outcome well let the current irish pandemic and their how trump handled it in general around the world. Plenty of to perfectly well under corona virus that handled it even moderately more competently than trump. Did i mean to the extent there were issues with the polls a lot of them seem like they been corona virus related that if more democrats were at home abiding by social distancing. We're not. We're like the answer phone calls..

"Have an impact on turnout. And in addition to just that suggestion from lynnwood the apparent civil war going on right now between republicans who want georgia republicans to do more to try to overturn the election and not state and georgia republicans. Who are saying no. I don't think so. This is an interesting story. That trump in republicans are really trashing. The secretary of state a lot because he's been very emphatic. That trump laws to these republican too. So there is a republican divide in the state but this is like a hugely important election. If you're a republican voter your choices to stay home and potentially give joe biden and kamala harris a trifecta. I doubt you're going to do that. I mean look. These races are so close. That i guess if maybe fifteen thousand people. Lynn woods words. That's enough so i wouldn't dismiss it 'cause the race close but i tend to think these things are going to be much less important than what the four candidates are i know. Trump's always a factor. I think this is like it is an important race where people's partisanship in sort of their leanings. Much worse than any sort of like intraparty fights that probably are more reticent with the media and leads then with regular votes. yeah. I don't know. I mean little things can matter. It was close in november. And it's close in the polling so if you have like this if if the runoffs by one point then lynnwood will not be a very popular man among republicans. Don't think well some other context here. Is that president. Trump has been saying for five years. American elections are rigged and there was record. Republican turn out in november so it seems like even if that is one of the messages. It doesn't necessarily dissuade people from voting again. You mentioned small numbers. Do we know what the small numbers of people may be from the polling who believed that the elections are truly rigged Vote actually might not matter versus just taking the partisan position of. Oh yeah while. I wanna trump to win. So i'm just gonna say like yes. Trump should have one end. The election was right. I mean i don't quite know how you would see that in the polling because these people who wouldn't turn out see i mean there is some polling suggests that turnout will be worse the gop in the runoff than in the regular election which could mean a few things it could be this thing about..

"About the georgia runoff elections and also some of the challenges facing the gop electorally. In comparison to the conversation we had last week about the challenges facing the democratic party. So georgia i when it comes to the runoff elections there according to our averages jon ossoff and david purdue are essentially tied. I think there's separated by a third of a point. Raphael warnock is leading. Kelly left floor by two points but again especially at this point with limited polling. People should certainly view that as a tie. We're leading this off talking about polling averages in the wake of election that rightly or wrongly perhaps dissuaded people from paying attention to the polls they of course underestimated republicans in november in some states more than other states. Do we see any reason to second. Guess the polling at this point in time in the georgia runoff elections with a couple of things. Here number. one it's still kind of early in this runoff. We have almost a month to go so and sometimes races gravitate toward the fundamentals only late in the race and so it's a little early to be back said on the polling is inherently hard to believe. These races are close. It shouldn't be really. We had a general election just a month ago and that was very close in georgia both for the presidency which by one in the senate races you would ordinarily expect that in a mid term type environment that there's a backlash against the incumbent party except biden hasn't become president yet and trump is trying to make you forget that biden won the election and we'll become president and so that might be short-circuiting some of the normal processes right. You're not having checks and balances argument that you might. You have in leffler and purdue to fairly problematic candidates leffler ran very far to right in the first stage of this. She hasn't appointed elected incumbent. Appointed incumbents tend to not carry the protections irregular incumbents. Meanwhile as well as left there have both been an adhesive term implicated. It's made me too strong. But like their questions about a lot of stock trades. They have made while members of the us senate and whether those are above board or not. So it's not the perfect circumstances for the gop and georgia's increasingly purple. I suppose to bed still probably bet on republicans especially in that leffler race. It wouldn't completely shock me given how close if you had a one.
"gop " Discussed on WSJ What's News
"This morning, we talked about key congressional races to watch on election day. One aspect that both parties have been paying attention to is diversity Democrats and Republicans are working to increase diversity in their ranks, but it's been a tougher challenge for the GOP joining me now to talk more about their efforts is wall. Street. Journal. Congressional reporter Natalie Andrews Hi. Natalie. Thanks for being here. Thank you. So. Not only what can you tell us about the Republican Party's efforts to diversify its ranks in twenty eight? After the Midterm Elections Republicans in the house were criticized for a low amount of women and people of Color in the house. The numbers dropped because some people ascended to higher office and because there were retirements but it stood in stark contrast to the Democrats who had increased diversity, a number of women in their ranks and so house minority leader Kevin. McCarthy made this a priority to make sure he was supporting women and people of Color in races, and this was also something he was that was done after other lawmakers in the conference pushed him to do. So what have been some of the challenges for the GOP in becoming more diverse? The platform of the Republican Party has not always reached out specifically to black people and Democrats have historically represented majority minority districts and have focused on issues that impact minorities we have the congressional black caucus is entirely democratic right now, and they have an agenda that they say appeals to black people in America And we've seen that at times the president has made comments that do not win over black voters. He has made comments that members of his own party have called racially charged or even racist, which has been a problem with Republicans as they try to increase their ranks. So. What can you tell us about this year's GOP candidates for the house. In the house, the Republicans are set to lose. Their soul black. Republican lawmaker and that is will heard and so after Mr heard announced his retirement, a lot of is went to. Own, my goodness, they're losing their one black man in their caucus in. So we sent out to look at how they're recruiting efforts had gone to diversify, and they are set to have at least one black man come to Congress next year that would be Byron donalds in he is running in a safe Republican district in. Florida it's in the Naples area. He's been a state lawmaker for the past four years and has been involved in local tea party groups and various Republican groups for. About a decade. So that is really the one lawmaker who looks like he's coming to the house next year, and then there's a few competitive races such as in Utah, Burgess Owens is challenging Ben McAdams and in Texas in the Houston suburbs Wesley Hunt is running against congressman lizzy Fletcher in Texas. How does that compare to what we're seeing among? Democrats, in the House, this election Democrats are set to increase their diversity. We've seen a few people of Color winning primaries or win in safe districts. So. We do expect their numbers to grow but this is something that Democrats have placed a priority on and they do tend to speak to minority groups specifically, whereas Republicans often talk about how they don't want to be focused on so-called identity politics and reach out to groups specifically instead they want their policies such as economic policies to. Ring true to voters and have them vote and that's one thing that when I talked to Byron donalds he spoke about that. He doesn't want to be the mold of what a black person is in politics. He's a conservative he talks about criminal justice reform. He introduced himself to voters by calling himself a strong trump supporting gun owning liberty loving pro-life, politically incorrect black man and those are the Republicans that we're seeing running for Congress this year. How about compared to what we're seeing in the? Senate in the Senate, there is one block Republican Tim Scott and two block Democrats Comma Harris and Cory Booker. There are a few black candidates who are Republican, who are challenging Democrats and the one that we're watching very closely is John James and Michigan that become competitive if it swings his way, he'll join tim. Scott. In the Republican Conference Natalie, you mentioned the midterms in two thousand eighteen which resulted in a record number of women being elected to Congress overall. How is Congress doing in terms of diversifying representation? When you look at the numbers, Congress is still white in as a majority. There are fifty three blockhouse lawmakers including the delegates fifty, two of those are Democrats. So those numbers are slowly increasing and when you incorporate women, LGBT members, people of Color Democrats will say that half of their caucus belongs to one of those diverse groups. But that still means that trunk of the caucus is white men, which is obviously what's been members of Congress predominantly since the beginning of the country and on the Republican side, Kevin McCarthy worked. To increase diversity this year, they had a record number of candidates run for office who were black. It's just a lot of those candidates ran in districts that are safely democratic, and so there weren't as many that ran in districts that were winnable for Republicans and we do have these swings seats that we're watching, but overall the sixty four. So candidates that Republicans had enter the race a lot of those were in safe Democratic Seats Wall Street Journal Congressional reporter Natalie Andras Natalie. Thanks so much for being here..

"We keep talking about it's on it's off it's on what's happening well, extreme mixed messages from the White House helped any of this we'll republicans want to do. We have a hard time with Nancy Pelosi she thinks she can influence the election. And I think they're hurting themselves by not doing it but the Republicans want to do it we WANNA do. Stimulus we want to help the airlines again because. Remember the president said everything's off I'm cancelling. All of the all of the negotiations until after the election if I'm elected, I'll get all kinds of stuff done. But then he changed his tune saying he wanted both sides to go big the back realizing perhaps the era of is ways ahead of an election. So there know they've tried to put these back on into the treasury secretary has offered a one point eight close to one point nine, trillion dollar by A. Compromise deal that he put on the table over the weekend with the speaker of the House. You want to go to the White House. What's the best way to work this out now? The White House it's one of the most dangerous places. In, the country she turned that down saying, Hey, look, there's no national plan for testing not enough money for testing tracing treatment. There is no standalone bill without a bigger bill, and so they're still at the negotiating table but I would tell you Brad. There are a lot of people that are saying including Mitch McConnell in the Senate. It doesn't look like this is a deal that's going to happen before McConnell. McConnell, it's like it's becoming clear. You can rush things through the Senate right now it's just not this. Legislation is harder he wants more of his Republicans signed on and they're not willing to go as high as two trillion dollars. The White House is signaling. They might go that high as two trillion, but you're going to lose almost all Senate Republicans. It's hard to see what the path forward would be toward a deal at this point. And if you want an example of just how important this is, you can look at Lindsey Graham, he was supposed to a debate with his Senate challenger. This weekend will refuse to get a covid tasks. He said he didn't need one but a lot of people suspected it's because he didn't want to get one because God forbid he tests positive he wouldn't be able to. Preside over these hearings his debate basically it's canceled. He's getting demolished in fundraising all of a sudden. It just shows you that the confirmation of Amy. CONYBEARE. It takes precedence among all else right now in the GOP Senate that even if it costs you your Senate race, that is clearly where the priority lies fascinating stuff we'll wait for today Trish in Washington.

"The. Virtual Republican National. Convention kicked off yesterday with an official role call that nominated Donald Trump and mike pence for re election as the GOP ticket Alina train was watching everything yesterday and last night and is here now with her big takeaways Elena Sue one question I had was how much was the corona virus in the pandemic going to be mentioned we actually that was a big topic last night it was I think that heading into new that they wanted to spend a. Lot of time on programming around the coronavirus specifically because they know this is going to be a key priority for voters in the election in November but I would say that the messaging we saw around covid was really an alternate narrative of how the pandemic has played out essentially, they argued that the president acted fast and everyone else got it. Wrong. So I think that the messaging around the corona virus and what we saw last night, it was a bit of revisionist history. That brings me to the second point, which is there was a lot of fact checking that journalists were doing about the statements that were being made yesterday. Yes. We saw a lot more fact checking last night from the networks than we did last week during the Democratic National Convention, which definitely sparked a lot of criticism from people on the right on twitter and elsewhere last night. But we saw MSNBC and CNN cut away from live covered several times at one point motto who was headlining for MSNBC. said that they were going to try to keep it to a minimum, but they felt they had their duty to fact check in real time and that led to skipping a lot of speeches, missing parts of speeches, Jonathan Swan said that we would look for made for TV moments that hearken back to President Trump's reality TV background and we saw that last night with a panel, the president convened with a group of hostages that had been free during his administration. Yes and so the president and his. Campaign know that one of the best advantages they have this week and leading into the election is that he's been in office and some of the successes fees had while president and we saw them play that up tonight, the hostages six former hostages, kind of in a semi circle surrounded president trump and a taped interview from the White House, and it really spoke to trying to paint more of the president as someone who's freed these people and will continue to work hard to do the same in. His Administration I. Think it also kind of played on the empathy of the president he tried to connect with these former hostages on special level will the great people of Utah really wanted me to do something about the two of you and we were able to do it and a little bit of a miracle I. Think Frankly, it was a very hustle period definitely leverage that aspect of the office of the presidency tonight last night ended with Republican Senator Tim Scott, the only black Republican in the Senate. Mounting a pretty powerful critique of Joe. Biden. Yes. It was a tough assessment of Joe Biden's record on race Joe. Biden said if a black man didn't vote for him, he wasn't truly black Joe. Biden. Said black people are in Monolithic community. It was Joe Biden who said poor kids can be just as smart. As white kids either all things that Joe Biden has said and something that Tim Scott. As the only black Republican. In the Senate is poised to say and he he made it very personal as well as which I think brought this speech.

"On W. GOP. It is only July. All kinds of things could happen between now and election Day. Still, it's probably safe to say there are at least three factors voters are weighing as they decide between President Trump and Joe Biden. The first, of course, is he's handling of the pandemic. The president's handling of covert 19 even as cases rise in many parts of the country, the second, maybe racial justice and a demand for major change in how people of color are treated in the U. S. And the third is this big story about Russian bounties being paid to Taliban fighters to kill America? Kans in Afghanistan. President Trump tells Fox business He doesn't believe the intelligence I think it's a hoax. I think it's a hoax by the newspapers and the Democrats. President was asked. What if it is true if it did happen? The Russians would hear about it, and anybody else would hear about it that was involved. Joining us live. John Harris, founding editor of Politico and John. Up Until now, we've heard from the president's handlers on this, including the National Security advisor. Now, Mr Trump is speaking out. What do you make of his reaction? Well, he's going to a familiar playbook, which is the same that serious allegations are hopes and hope That's enough to rally his side that they behind him. Ah, he's used that an impeachment use that basically with every important controversy that's come before He's never had one arrived with this terrible timing. As you point out on all three of those issues. He's really on the defensive. Let's hear what the president told Fox business about the pandemic. I think that at some point that's going to sort of just disappear. I hope You still believe so disappear? Do Ideo? Yeah, sure, Some point. And I think we're gonna have a vaccine very soon, too so taking in account that that sound bite. Which of the three items do you think we'll have the most impact on the president's reelection isn't the pandemic and our major concerns about health and economy? I think it is because those clearly on turn trajectories are going to last all the way through the balance of the year. Whatever else comes into the news cycle, we know that the shutdown And the economic effects of that shut down Ah, and the continuation of the disease. We know almost to a certainty that those were goingto remained very much in the forefront. Of the news and they're correctly there might a frame this whole election year. Joe Biden's campaign has been described by some as less is Mohr. How do you think he's doing with the carefully chosen appearances and remarks? Well, I would agree with that lessons Mohr because ah, really, what he's doing with that strategy is keeping this weighs about President Trump and his record on and basically all the polling, including a politico morning console pull just today shows six out of 10 voters disapprove. Of President Trump's performance. 75% of the country thinks we're on the wrong track. So as long as Biden can make this keep the discussion about President Trump. Ah ah, he's in good shape. Of course, President Trump is trying Tio frame this as Ah. More of a choice between he and bind rather than a referendum on his own record.

"So it's there's a thing. It's going to. Would will do it's going these these these these legislatures who are overwhelmingly white and male seeing them take away power to incoming female politicians is going to backfire. And there was a New York time opinion piece by someone. I don't remember who it was. But it was essentially that we should just let them do it and not even fight it because it's going to backfire so God damn hard on them. I don't necessarily agree with that. But I I like the scorched earth sentiment behind it. It is it does seem like one of those things like this is what's so like shortsighted about it is it seems something that only will have consequences. Like, I just don't know whom he will not be good. No, not especially when you see it as a pattern of other states doing it. Also makes me think you Bill. You don't have those bills that would happen. State-by-state gut reformed the trap laws all these all these things that would come up, and they're basically like madly laws. I wonder if this is not something that is being. Being propelled by some bigger entity. Do you to know because student two states are doing it? Someone told me recently that the declaration of independence and the Bill of rights are both in the vault in mount Rushmore. Do you think that's true? With the person. Budget say soon out the Smithsonian. No fake. I think maybe someone told me national treasure venture story. The other thing that's in there like the seeds for tomatoes, and carrots and stuff. No, the biography of the man who built the vault that's Kino's. This this bullshit. It's ridiculous looking at. Okay. I can't wait. Okay. So I'll give you this quote because a lot of GOP state GOP people are not ju p p national archives. I bought it hook line, and sinker. Yeah possible. Yeah. Okay. Sorry. So we're GOP both of the GOP are not speaking about these these power grab bills. But a one event Dave Robertson who's in. Michigan state Senator when he was asked for comment on the Shannon against he said, this has been discussed for of their for Michigan. Oh, don't you know has been discussed for quite some time. And frankly, I'm capable of inspiration at anytime, including now, so basically saying like this has been in the works. And also we could just come up with bullshit whenever we want because that's right. As people in power right now, also, Mr. Robertson who said all this shit about them doing all this shady garbage. He also wrote the camp campaign finance Bill that passed the Michigan state Senate Thursday and also has himself been sanction for campaign finance violations. So cool. I got two words for these fellas. Quack quack gavel-to-gavel than. That's the sound of words twice that you're repeating once each so four words, but the two, but you words, yeah. And you're not not really word more like an automatic Pia. Yeah. Quack quack gavel-to-gavel that is a sound of a lame duck session. Causing habit on the American democratic system will been okay, actually, the whole seaboard, go crack crack gavel-to-gavel. Ouch. Ouch. That's democracy. Very nice Aaron thank you insane..
