PatientPop, The Proven Practice Growth Platform
"I I wanted wanted to to feature feature a a tech tech startup startup story story. The to hollow highlight at a a very very important important fact fact that that we we seldom seldom talk talk about about even even on on this this show. show. And And that that is is the the solution solution isn't isn't always always as as important important as as the the problem problem and and also also exploit exploit market market testing testing your your technology technology in in your your startup. startup. I'm I'm the the growing growing pains pains under under hurdles hurdles of of managing managing funding. funding. Wouldn't Wouldn't you're you're lucky lucky enough enough to to get get it. it. Of Of course. course. So So today's today's guests guests are are from from a a company company called called patient patient pop, pop, which which is is a a fast fast growing growing healthcare healthcare technology technology star star ROY ROY in in the the hall hall of of silicon silicon beach beach and and today's today's guest guest is is a a highly highly motivated motivated goal goal focused focused and and passionate passionate entrepreneur entrepreneur with with a a successful successful track track record record of of working working with with start startup up and and early early stage stage companies. companies. And And has has also also participated participated in in two two successful successful exit. exit. So So book book elope elope and and hold hold on on tight tight as as I I beam. beam. Your Your heirs heirs all all the the way way to to California. California. So So we we can can speak speak with with Luke Luke curving, curving, founder founder and and CEO see of off patient. patient Pop. pop. So So massive massive warm. warm. Welcome Welcome to to the the show. show. Can Can you you tell tell them them a a little little about about who who you you are? are? And And what what you you do. do. Sure. Sure. Thanks Thanks for for having having me me Neal. Neal. My My name name is is Luke Luke urban, urban, and and I'm I'm the the co co founder founder and and co-ceo cassia of of patient patient Pau Pau where where a a healthcare healthcare technology technology company company based based in in Santa Santa Monica. Monica. So So for for people people that that hearing hearing about about patient patient pub pub for for the the very very first first time, time, can can you you just just paint paint a a picture picture and and help help them them visualize. visualize. Exactly, Exactly, what what is is in in the the kind kind of of problems problems that that you you guys. guys. So So sure sure Beijing Beijing pop pop is is a a software software as as a a service service platform. platform. We We are are the the first first practice practice growth growth platform platform for for healthcare healthcare and and our our mission mission is is to to help help practices practices thrive. thrive. The The way way we we do do that that is is we we help help practices practices attract attract and and retain retain patients patients for for life. life. And And really really what what we're we're doing doing is. is. We've We've mapped mapped out out the the patient patient journey journey every every step step of of the the patient patient journey. journey. We We have have identified identified all all of of the the points points of of friction friction and and we've we've built built a a platform platform to to modernize modernize each each step step of of that that journey journey in in an an effort effort to to help. help. Bring Bring patients patients into into the the practice. practice. So So he he told told me me that more more about about how how you you guys guys actually sleep bringing bringing people people process process and and technology technology together together with with a a patient patient Paul Paul because because it it seems seems to to be be those those days days with of the the secret secret ingredients ingredients to to McCann can you yougov gossip successful. successful. Sure. Sure. Absolutely. Absolutely. So So we're we're approaching approaching four four hundred hundred employees employees at at patient up pop. The the one one thing thing I'll I'll say say about about our our companies companies that that were were very very metric metric driven driven every every employee employee is is working working towards towards a a target target set set of of metrics metrics or or outcomes. outcomes. And And so so to to set set goals goals at at patient patient op pop. we We use use a a system system or or a a framework framework called called okay okay ours. ours. And And this this is is a a framework framework that that we we started started using using two two or or three three years years ago. ago. And And the the reason reason I I like like it it is is because because it it encourages encourages accompany accompany teams teams and in employees employee's to to set set stretch stretch goals goals and and one one of of the the key key features features of of okay okay ours ours is is that that they're they're not not tied tied to to compensation compensation or or performance performance reviews. reviews. So So unlike unlike other other goal, goal, setting setting frameworks frameworks employees employees and and teams teams often often have have an an incentive incentive to to sandbag sandbag because because their their bonus. bonus. And And the the performance performance review review is is tied tied to to the the team payment of of those those goals. goals. And And so so what? what okay Okay. Ours. ours Teach teach us us is is that that we we really really should should try try to to separate separate those those two two things. things. And And so so that's that's how how we we said said goals goals at patient patient pop, pop. and And then then we we use use various various technologies technologies and in systems systems to to track track and and measure measure our our goal goal attainment. attainment. But But one one of of the the key key ones y. Owns a a Salesforce, Salesforce. we've We've built built her her entire entire business business on on Salesforce, Salesforce, both both our our sales sales org, org, and and our or customer customer successor successor is is using using Salesforce Salesforce on on a a daily daily basis, basis, and and that's that's the the platform platform that that we we use use amongst amongst others others to to track track and and report report on on our our key key metrics, metrics, I'm I'm curious curious how how you you got got way way will will today today them. them. So So what's what's the the textile textile story story behind behind patient patient pump and and discovering discovering that that solution solution isn't isn't always always as as important potent as as the the problem? problem? Exactly. Exactly. So, So, you you know, know, I I believe believe that that the the first first step step in in creating creating a a new new business business is is to to identify identify huge huge must must solve solve problem. problem. And And the the thinking thinking is is if if you you get get the the problem, problem, right? right? You'll You'll have have the the opportunity opportunity to to build build a a big big business. business. Even Even if if the the initial initial solution solution that that you you bring bring to to market market isn't isn't the the right right solution. solution. So So it's it's really really important important to to find find a a massive massive muscle muscle. problem. Prob. Problem. And And so so before before we we started started patient patient up up our our previous previous business business shop shop nation nation had had recently recently been been acquired, acquired, and and we we had had to to find find a a simple simple set set of of criteria criteria that that we we were were looking looking for for in in our our next next business. business. So So we we said said number number one one it it has has to to be be a a large large market market has has to to be be a a massive massive market market can't can't build build a a massive massive business business in in the the small small market. market. So So it it has has to to be be large large number number two. two. It It has has to to be be a a must must solve solve problem. problem. Right. Right. We We didn't didn't want want to to build build a a nice nice to to have have product product that that was was optional optional for for a a business. business. It It had had to to be be must must solve. solve. So So it it had had to to be be one one of of the the key key things. things. That That was was keeping keeping our our perspective perspective customers customers up up at at night. night. We We were were looking looking for for a a market market that that had had no no defined defined winners. winners. Or Or that that was was highly highly fragmented, fragmented, and and we we wanted wanted a to business business model model in in market market that that commanded commanded a a high high valuation valuation multiple. multiple. So So when when we we looked looked at at subscription subscription based based businesses businesses software software as as a a service service specifically specifically we we noticed noticed that that valuations valuations in in multiples multiples were were much much higher higher than than what what we're we're used used to to in in the the world world of of e-commerce. e-commerce. You You know, know, you're you're seeing seeing six six eight eight ten ten twelve twelve x x revenue revenue multiples multiples where where in the. the World world of of e-commerce, e-commerce, you you might might be be looking looking at at a one one or or two two x. x. So So we we liked liked that that about about this the subscription obstruction model, model. and And then then we we were were looking looking for for a a simple simple sales sales model. model. Right. Right. A A really really simple simple go go to to market market strategy strategy where where we we could could build build software software higher higher sales sales people people and in go going. into To the the market market and and sell sell it. it. So So before before we we did did any any research research and and started started thinking thinking about about the the next next opportunity, opportunity, my my business business partner, partner, and and I I had had written written down down that that criteria. criteria. And And we we would would judge judge evaluate evaluate every every opportunity opportunity we we came came across across against against that that criteria. criteria. So So that that was was step step one. one. Then Then we we got got a a little little bit bit lucky. lucky. My My wife wife happened happened to to be be pregnant pregnant at at the the time time with with my my daughter daughter who who just just turned turned five five yesterday. yesterday. And And so so we we were were spending spending a a lot lot of of time time in in waiting waiting rooms. rooms. And And I I was was really really shocked shocked at at how how little little technology technology these these healthcare healthcare practice practice has has had had adopted adopted to to improve improve the the patient patient experience. experience. So So we we experienced experienced all all kinds kinds of of she's shoes long long, wait wait times times rushed rushed visits visits poor poor customer customer service. service. We We couldn't couldn't schedule schedule an an appointment appointment online online in in two two thousand thousand thirteen thirteen I I thought thought that that was was odd. odd. And And we we couldn't couldn't pay pay a a Bill Bill online. online. I I can can recall recall in in. two Two thousand thousand and thirteen thirteen I I had had order order a checkbook checkbook simply simply to to pay pay a a healthcare healthcare Bill. Bill. And And I I thought thought that that was was very very surprising. surprising. And And then then something something terrible terrible happens. happens. They They missed missed a a critical. critical Test test result result. information Information was was not not properly properly shared shared from from one one provider provider to to another another it it ended ended up up getting getting caught caught by by accident accident by by her her primary primary care care provider, provider, but but had had it it not not been been caught caught it it would would have caused caused major major problems problems in in her her pregnancy. pregnancy. And And so so I I went went back back to to my my business business partner. partners Travis Travis, and and I I said, said, I I think think I I know know what what we're we're gonna gonna do do next. next. We're We're going going to to build build a a platform platform to to quarterback, quarterback, pregnancies. pregnancies. And And so so off off we we went went into into the the market market we we interviewed interviewed about about ten ten OBGYN's OBGYN's in in the the LA LA area. area. We We wanted wanted to to learn learn more more about about this this opportunity opportunity if if they they share share the the same same passion passion for for solving solving this this problem. problem. And And when when we we went went out out to to interview interview them, them, we we actually actually learned learned that that there there was was a a much much bigger bigger problem problem at at every every independent independent practice practice that that we we talked talked to to said said the the exact exact same same thing thing in in two two thousand thousand and and thirteen thirteen they they were were struggling struggling to to survive. survive. Many Many of of them them were were earning earning less. less Than than they they had had in in the the past past due due to to changes changes in in reimbursement reimbursement models models and and some some of of them them were were even even considering considering selling selling their their practice practice to to one one of of these these larger larger health health systems systems or or hospital hospital groups groups because because they they were were struggling struggling and and. the The second second thing thing we we learned learned was was that that every every practice practice every every doctor doctor whether whether they they were were thirty thirty five five or or sixty sixty five five years years old. old. They They all all recognize recognize that that the the front front door door of of their their practice practice was was moving moving online, online, and and they they were were scrambling scrambling to to figure figure out out a a strategy. strategy. And And so so what what most most of of these these practices practices had had done done is. is they They had had called cobbled together. together. What What we we call call a a piecemeal piecemeal solution? solution? It's It's the the guy guy down down the the street street built built them them a a website. website. They're They're working working with with a a vendor vendor for for online online scheduling scheduling they're they're working working with with a a different different vendor vendor to to bring bring to to do do Email Email marketing, marketing, they're they're working working with with a a consultant consultant to to do do SEO SEO the the really really concerned concerned about about their their online online reputation. reputation. So So they're they're spending spending advertising advertising dollars dollars on on yelp yelp because because they they think think that that will will help help maybe maybe they they have have someone someone coming coming into into their their office office to to do do social social media. media. And And so so it it was was really really a a hodgepodge hodgepodge of of different different services services in in vendors vendors that that they they had. had Called called together together to to try try to to solve solve the the solution. solution. And And what what we we learned learned was was that that there there were were spending spending a a lot lot of of money. money. They They were were spending spending a a lot lot of of time time managing managing all all of of these these vendors, vendors, and and they they really really couldn't couldn't tell tell whether whether it it was was. working Working or or not. not. And And in in most most cases, cases, it it was was wasn't wasn't working working when when we we when when we we really really looked looked into into it. it. Because Because a a lot lot of of these these solutions solutions were were not not designed designed for for healthcare, healthcare, and and these these solutions solutions were were not not designed designed to to work work together. together. And And most most of of them them were were were were horizontal horizontal platform. platform. So So they they had had really really they they were were not not tailored tailored at at all all to to healthcare healthcare and and so- so- Travis Travis in in myself myself asked asked yourselves. yourselves. What What would would we we do do given given our our background background and and e e commerce commerce marketing, marketing, so so we we had had previously previously built built to to businesses businesses in in ecommerce ecommerce marketing, marketing, what what would would we we do do to to solve solve this this problem? problem? And And we we envisioned envisioned what what we we call call a a practice practice growth growth platform. platform. And And really really what what it it is. is. It's It's an an e e commerce commerce platform platform for for healthcare. healthcare. It's It's designed designed to to drive drive transactions transactions online, online, which which in in this this case, case, our our new new patients patients to to manage manage the the purchase purchase funnel. funnel. Which Which in? in? This This case case is is the the patient patient journey. journey And and to to bring bring patients patients back back when when the the time time is is right. right. So So to to retain retain them them or or recall recall them them in and bring bring them them back back into into the the business. business. And And so so that's that's that that was was the the original original vision vision for for the the business. business. We We got got started started in in two two thousand thousand fourteen fourteen. and And we we saw saw really really incredible incredible product product market market fit fit right right out out of of the the gate. gate. Is Is fascinating fascinating is is how how locked locked puts puts you you in in the the right right place place at at the the right right time time with with the the you'll you'll pregnant pregnant wife wife the the inspiration. inspiration. Hit Hit us us almost almost like like the the universe universe gives gives you you a a little little not not in in the the right right direction. direction. Sometimes Sometimes isn't isn't it? it? Absolutely. Absolutely. So So for for any any stall stall took took found found his his listening. listening. Can Can you you offer offer any any advice advice on on mulkey mulkey testing testing that that technology technology before before actually actually getting getting outlet? outlet? Yes. Yes. Absolutely. Absolutely. So So I'm I'm a a huge huge believer believer in in validating validating as as cheaply cheaply cost cost effectively effectively and and efficiently efficiently as as possible possible you you really really want want to to try try to to test test your your idea idea really really quickly quickly and and not not spend spend a a lot lot of of money money and and not not make make a a big big investment investment to to determine determine can can this this be be a a big big business business or or not? not? So So I'll I'll give give you you a a couple couple of of examples. examples. So So our our previous previous business business prior prior to to patient patient pop. pop. We We had had started started a a business business called called shop shop nation, nation, which which was was ecommerce ecommerce marketing marketing platform, platform, and and with with our our initial initial product product there, there, we we went went out, out, and and we we interviewed interviewed a a bunch bunch of of consumers consumers we we wanted wanted to to find find out out what what they they use use this this e e commerce commerce tool tool that that we we were were building building to to shop shop online, online, and and we we sat sat down down we we went went to to a a couple couple of of universities, universities, and and we we had had them them use use the the actual actual prototype, prototype, and and we we collected collected feedback feedback and and just just about about every every student student that that we we talked talked to to told told us us they they loved loved it. it. And And that that they they would would absolute. absolute. Use Use it. it. But But when when we we launched launched it it we we saw saw very very little little traction. traction. And And what what I I what what we we learned. learned. There There was was if if you you as as a a founder founder of of going going out, out, and and you're you're asking asking someone someone to to test test something something you you certainly certainly don't don't want want to to ask ask friends friends or or family family members. members. But But even even if if you're you're asking asking a a stranger, stranger, and and they they know know the the context context that that you're you're founder, founder, and and it's it's the the product product that that you're you're building building they're they're probably probably going going to to give give you you positive positive feedback feedback and and you're you're going going to to have have a a false false positive. positive. And And so so when when we we started started patient patient pop pop rather rather than than going going out out and and interviewing interviewing and and ask ask them them for for feedback. feedback. We We did did a a little little bit bit of of that that initially. initially. But But what what we we really really wanted wanted to to do do was was test test selling selling the the product product or or testing testing the the product product in in a a real real in a a real real life life context. context. So So when when we we brought brought it it to to market market initially, initially, we we designed designed a a website website redesign redesign the the brochure, brochure, and and we we printed printed two two business business cards cards for for myself, myself, and and my my partner, partner, we we called called herself herself sales sales reps reps we we called called around around town. town And and we we scheduled scheduled demos demos with with doctors. doctors. We We told told them them we we had had software software that that would would help help them them bro bro their their practice, practice, and and we we went went in in and and we we pick. pick. The The product product is is though though it it existed existed we we showed showed screen screen shots. shots. We We didn't didn't tell tell them them that. that. We We were were founders. founders. We We didn't didn't tell tell them. them. This This was was a a new new business. business. We We really really wanted wanted to to test. test. If If the the market market would would spend spend four four five five six six hundred hundred dollars dollars a a month month on on a a practice practice growth growth platform platform to to attract attract and and retain retain patients patients and and through through that that test. test. We We signed signed up up the the first first nine nine out out of of nine nine doctors doctors that that we we pitched pitched and and we we knew knew that that we we were were onto onto something. something. For For many many found found is is listing listing as as well. well The the bullet bullet away away that sometimes sometimes guilty guilty a trying throwing everything everything into into funding. funding. An An when when they they get get the the encamped encamped a a whole whole range range of of new new challenges. challenges. So So we'll we'll all all the the hurdles hurdles of of managing managing funding. funding. Wouldn't Wouldn't you you look look enough enough to to get get it? it? You You know, know, to to be be honest, honest, you you know, know, we've we've never never really really experienced experienced challenges challenges related related to to fund fund in in because because you you know, know, you you really really don't don't want want to to raise raise capital capital in in the the first first place place unless unless you you know, know, how how you're you're going gonna to use use it. it. So So you you want want to to have have a a very very clearly clearly defined defined operating operating plan plan going going into into your your into into your your year year where where you you know, know, exactly exactly how how much much capital capital you you require require and and how how you're you're going gonna to put put it it to to work. work. Right. Right. And And as as you you project project that that out out over over a a couple couple of of years years that that gives gives you you an an idea idea of of how how much much capital capital you you need need to to raise. raise. Now, Now, we we did did something something that's that's not not common. common. We We hired hired a a CFO CFO as as fifth fifth or or six six higher. higher. We We hired hired a a CFO CFO before before we we had had any any real real revenue, revenue, and and that that was was because because Travis Travis and and myself, myself, my my partner, partner, and and I I were were coming coming into into software software as as a a service, service, we we had had little little very very very. very. Little Little experience experience selling selling software software in in our our previous previous to to businesses. businesses. We We had had built built ecommerce ecommerce marketing marketing platforms, platforms, and and we we wanted wanted to to have have an an expert expert that that understood understood software software businesses, businesses, and and we we thought thought it it made made sense sense to to have have a a CEO CEO in in early early to to help help us us build build out out the the model model to to project project how how much much capital capital we we would would require require and and to to play play a a key key role role in in raising raising that that capital capital and and then then managing managing it. it. Now Now patient patient pup pup recently recently announced announced that that he's he's practiced practiced growth growth solution, solution, not not suppose. suppose. Amazon. Amazon. Alexa, Alexa, search search which which will will actually actually allow allow patients patients to to fund fund that that provide provide is is basically basically asking asking Alexa, Alexa, using using their their voice. voice. What What kind kind of of fate feedback back have have you you received received on on this? this? So So our one one of of our our core core promises promises to to our our customers customers when when they're they're they're they're paying paying us us five five or or six six hundred hundred dollars dollars a a month. month. You You know, know, our our core core promise promise to to them them is is that that they're they're subscribing subscribing to to continuous continuous innovation. innovation. That's That's really really the the idea idea behind behind software software as as a a service, service, you you pay pay a a monthly monthly fee, fee, and and you you should should scribe scribe to to a a platform. platform. That's That's shared shared across across a a base base of of customers customers and and the the software software as as a a service service businesses. businesses. Continually Continually updating updating often often on on a a weekly weekly basis basis the this off. off. Swear Wear to to ensure ensure that that customers customers have have the the latest latest and and greatest greatest software software serving serving their their business. business. And And so so in in line line with with that that we're we're always always looking looking for for the the next next opportunity opportunity the the latest latest technologies technologies to to incorporate incorporate into into our our platform platform to to help help our our practices practices thrive thrive attract attract and and retain retain patients, patients, and and we we recognize recognize that that voice. voice. Search Search is is is is going going to to be be a a very very significant significant represented, represented, very very significant significant of of searches searches in in the the future, future, in in fact, fact, com com scored scored reported reported that that they they believe believe by by two two thousand thousand twenty twenty fifty fifty percent percent of of all all searches searches will will be be voiced voiced searches. searches. And And so so we we thought thought it it made made sense sense to to get get ahead ahead of of the the curve curve for for customers customers and and to to integrate integrate voice voice search search into into our our platform. platform. Now, Now, we're we're seeing seeing to to be be honest honest relatively relatively we're we're not not seeing seeing a a ton ton of of traffic traffic today. today. But But that's that's expected. expected. We We know know that that it's it's coming coming in. in. And And so so we we wanted wanted to to be be one one of of the the first first players players in in this this market market to to offer offer it it to to our our customer customer base. base. So So hey, hey, all all at at the the beginning beginning of of a a new new year year with with new new opportunities opportunities on on the the horizon. horizon. So So what what will? will? Twenty Twenty nine nine teen teen. having Having stole stole for for patient patient is is anything anything you you can can share share with with us us today today about about your vision vision for for the the shave shave and and beyond. bone. So So we we recently recently raised raised another another round round of of funding funding bringing bringing our our total total amount amount raised raised to to seventy seventy five five million million dollars dollars this this year. year. You'll You'll see see us us make make a a very very significant significant investment investment in in our our D. we're We're doubling doubling the the size size of of our our technology technology team. team.

"Looking with suburban women across the country, but included in Ohio. They look at the issue like immigration child, separation from their families, and you wonder is that enough of a breaking point, President Trump was able to win over many women voters in twenty sixteen as a change agent, someone who's just representing a break from the Washington establishment, but do the scandals, the controversies, the immigration policies does that push them away. Republicans continue to believe though, Elise, that even if you want to win over women voters, you can't go too far away from President Trump, and that's why they're not running like Ohio governor John casick as almost independent minded Republicans there with the president win or lose at this point. All right. Emily's got new reporting for Vanity, Fair on former communications director at the White House, hope Hicks, and her reappearance over the weekend at the president's side, just hours before he tweeted about the Trump Tower, meeting Hicks served as the go between when the. President dictated his sons misleading statement that claim it was primarily about adoptions for Emily's reporting Hicks plan to spend the weekend at Trump's golf club in New Jersey to catch up with vodka Trump and Jared Kushner, when the president learned that she'd be in town familiar with her thinking said, he asked her to come along to the rally and she did Vanity Fair recently reported Hicks was discussed by some as a dark horse to one day replace John Kelly as chief of staff. And while speaking to the press aboard, Air Force, One Saturday Hicks said she would perhaps consider it if the times, right. So Emily, let me just ask you the question. She came up after a couple of months away. Has she ever really left to the Trump or even since she left the White House really leave the Trump orbit in a major way and hope Hicks has certainly remained connected to President Trump and especially to vodka Jerry. She has not left this orbit at all. But what happened on Saturday was certainly the most public Vert expression of her being back in the fold that we have seen. In so far as and she left the White House in the spring, but. It seems from my reporting that it wasn't necessarily in the fairies thing. She was out there in Bedminster the president said full-time sake. When you come along and under normal circumstances, Corey Lewandowski still travels with the president for instance, and and that's something that that happened, something that is done. But at this time when the issue of the dungeon your Trump Tower meeting and the statement thereafter is so hot, it is. So in the news it has been talked about for the last couple of weeks in particular, you were talking earlier about lawyers, not advising their clients, talk on TV about these things. I can't imagine that hope picks lawyer said to her. It's a good idea for you to be on Air Force One this weekend. This is a smart legal strategy. There are people who are in the president's or grit, like a Steve Bannon who will not talk directly to the president because he is worried about the cult back to Robert Muller to interview with him. And so it is not. It would not be surprising to me of Robert Muller's sought saw this coverage inside, but we need to get back there and asked what he talked about. The weekend as you know, the president, especially right now is the walls close around a little bit once around himself. People he's comfortable with and their few people outside of his own children. He's more comfortable with our Hopi and yells for her name, and she in the office is their chance. She comes back to the White House. In some way in a fischel capacity has not landed a job. She's not decided what she wants to do next. And as she spoke to reporters on Saturday board efforts, one from my reporting, she said, look, if the.

"And we have all of that information because of this investigation on Russia. I mean that's about as important of an investigation as I can recall anybody in government undertaking important. Underline again that wouldn't Donald Trump junior or Rudy Giuliani, or any. Someone says he or she knows what exactly Bob Muller has or does not have member. Rudy Giuliani said last week that Bob Muller doesn't have a damn thing. None of those people have a damned idea what Bob Mahler is working out or what he has. That's all out there. That remains to be seen. He'll release it at the time, but to listen, Don Jr. yesterday with Laura Ingram, Joe say it was a bayton switch that it was presented to him as op research or whatever you wanna call it dirt on Hillary Clinton and then switched in the room to adoption. He's admitting he took the meeting to get oppa research from a foreign entity. So I mean, the emails are clear as day his explanation after the fact that I was that was only about adoption. And then as the evidence came out that they shifted and change their stories, so they are twisted in knots, at least, and I were talking about this when we sat down as you make a descent, I have no idea what lawyer is letting these people go on TV, go on the radio and say these things over and over contradicting themselves. They're not. They're just not helping themselves. Selves. They're also showing certainly their state of mind, which is we are on the hind. We are on the prowl for Russian dirt on Hillary Clinton. And again, the timeline winds up pretty pretty devastating way. If you look at Donald Trump's statements and press conferences, saying Russia, if you're listening will Russia did start listing. They went after it. You look at people close to Donald Trump, what they're saying, the radio and radio interviews. Yeah, it's lawyers the one or two serious lawyers around the Trump family have to be pulling their how right now Bob, I want to do. We're going to keep talking about this in a bit, but I wanna jump to what's happening tonight. A big election in Ohio. This is a race Republican should have put away a long time ago. Donald Trump won Ohio twelve by eleven points. I believe it was a strong strong Republican district and yet neck in that fight. Tonight between Democrats and Republicans. A lot of Democrats for good reason believe like believe they've already won this and even if they end up losing by pointer to because the map is expanded now to seventy five eighty places. But you had the Republicans shooting himself in the foot yesterday talking about Franklin county. They shouldn't elect anybody from Franklin county, which is, you know, one of the most important counties not only in that district, but also in the state of Ohio. And there are local issues like that that are are factor in this race, Joe. But what's really the big over arching theme of Ohio twelve is is that Troy baldur's the state Senator running in that race tonight he had a choice he could follow President Trump politically or could be more of John casick Republican avert himself move away from President. Trump's message embraced President Trump was with them at a rally over the weekend in the Columbus area and talked stood right there is the president was talking about build the wall and shaking its fist about the Muller investigation in the media and ball this trying to see if he can make that message that standing with Trump play in the suburbs, and that's a vaccine challenge that Republicans across the country are now facing. That's why this race matters a microcosm of what so many Republicans are going to face in the next few months. They get the Trump voter out, but also really run on standard Republican issues ilise and what I'm really watching tonight. I'm to go back and just keep hammering down on this point. What are suburban women going to do? How are they going to go up? Because I think we're on the verge of fundamental political realignment where the Republican party has permanently just at least temporarily if not permanently repelled women from voting Republican because of Donald Trump's consistently misogynistic behavior..

"Good morning. It is Tuesday, August, seventh, and welcome to morning Joe with us. On this Tuesday, we have MSNBC contributor, Mike particle former aide to the George W Bush White House and state departments elites Jordan is with us Pulitzer prize columnists in associate editor of the Washington Post and MSNBC political analyst. Eugene Robinson also with us senior writer at politico and co, author of the playbook. Jake Sherman joins us lot to get to this morning and number of big stories unfolding, and we're following them including Donald Trump, junior's shifting story on his meeting with the Russians and the question I have for him, does he know that he's making things worse, berm self. Now what he's saying about a quote, bait and switch. Really just stop talking. They all need to stop talking. Plus Rick gates points the finger at Paul Manafort saying they are both guilty. What his testimony means for the future of Trump's former campaign chairman and it's going to cost more than projected take longer than planned and not performance expecting a less than glowing assessment from the government about Trump's proposed border wall. And honestly, whenever he brings up immigration, he's bringing up his own disgusting failed deranged policy of separating children from their families. So now he's he's slapped with that tattoo on his old position on immigration. But we begin with new weekly tracking numbers from Gallup. It finds that fifty four percent disapprove of the job. President Trump is doing compared to forty one percent to approve of his performance. CNBC's John Harwood, analyze the source of Trump's support and found in the data that whites with no college degree approved that the president's job fifty eight to thirty nine percent while twenty nine percent of all other. Americans approve sixty six percent disapprove. So Joe, the numbers seem to be shifting just a bit for this president. There's always been. We've talked about it for some time that there's always been a bit of narrowcasting, but this is about this is about as narrowcasting gets and Willie. All I can say for Donald Trump and Republicans who are hoping like special election in Ohio tonight, Republicans are hoping that he's somehow going to get them over the finish line even in strongly Republican districts like this, Ohio, twelve, they just better hope that they're small slice of the electorate comes out because Donald Trump is sacrificing just about every other group in America for this one group of white, non college educated of Oaters that again, just there just aren't enough to get him over the top or to get his candidates. Over the top and a lot of elections, that Gallup number of forty-one percent approval is about where he's been over the course of his presidency, but it's that cross tab that you're looking at it. So interesting. Remember he won white non college voters by almost forty percent, so that certainly makes up the core of his base gene Robinson. Those are the people we see out at the rallies of last week, those those three big rallies that it's hard core support but remains to be seen if when he does intervene in some of these elections, like Ohio, twelve or when he endorses, Chris Kovac a Republican who's running for governor in Kansas, the RJ and the Republican party didn't want him to endorse. It remains to be seen how powerful exactly he is and those racists. I mean, what we've learned so far, I think from the special elections in the primaries is that he's very powerful the Republican party. He is got eighty nine percent support among Republicans. So it's very difficult if you're going to run into the Republican primary two buck Trump on. The other hand, he is very unpopular among your general among Americans in general, and Democrats have been doing a whole lot better than one would expect than anyone imagined from in these elections. We shouldn't be talking about this Ohio special election. This is a safe Republican seat and we're talking about it because it's a Trumpy backed candidate who is up against a democrat, who's a moderate who could win. Barnacle also again, when you talk about off year elections, what's so extraordinarily important is the intensity because most people don't go out and vote in midterm elections, you're lucky if you get third and the primary and maybe fifty percent of the voters when you get to the general election. But there was an article this morning that I read talking about how I think it was in the, I think, is the Washington Post. Talking about it in Ohio..
