"Eric in the world on the brink, and I believe all of that is true. The biggest choice election tipping point election will ever have, by the way, not a good couple of weeks for Biden. And by the way, Amazon just discount of the book 40% off If you're out, and about now and maybe you get home and get a nice discount. I love that. Also, it's now finally in bookstores. If you're also out about this weekend, we have announcements on Monday. We'll bring you Let me start with Biden. I mean those positions he's taken one of I've been saying we've never had a more extreme. What you know a so called mainstream That's not major political party that is this radical. And this is the week Biden talked about. Oh, undocumented immigrants should have subsidized healthcare and all abolished the filibuster if Republicans don't compromise after he said he wouldn't do that. And unlike African American African American community, the Latino community is diverse stupidity. You know you ain't black if you're considering voting for Trump. All things that, he said. And then we course are Joe Biden montage on issues involving race, which all beyond disturbing in Gene Robinson. I'm curious what your take is on Joe Biden's comments. And, yes, I think that may have been an artful but but it's the first time that the Democrats that I've heard a national Democratic leader Actually say what he's been saying. Aaron, let me start with you. Is it a very insulting the Joe Biden disparagement insult the black community. If he's trying to make the point and maybe didn't make it as articulate as he would have liked that I believe the point is trying to make is that most African Americans overwhelmingly support Democrats. And if you travel the country and you go to Florida, for example, you have the Cuban American population, or you might have Puerto Rican population that has moved to Florida that has a different view than, say, Latino in Nevada, Arizona ISAT, disparaging and insulting with, the former vice president said. I think that that that is right, John. That was maybe an artful contrast that the vice president was trying to make and then obviously you saw President Donald Trump seizing on that, you know that kind of in artful remark did present kind of opening. For President Trump in Delaware. Largest growth of population is Indian Americans will be from India. You cannot go to a 7 11 dunkindonuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. What kind of a chance with a Northeastern liberal like Joe Biden stand? In the South better than anybody else. You don't know my state. My state was a slave state. My state is a border state. My state is the eight largest black population in the country. Unchain Wall Street. They're gonna put you all back in chains. Yes, And by the way, what you all know, but most people don't know. Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is incredibly diverse community. Incredibly different attitudes about different things. You go to Florida. You find a very different attitude about immigration in certain places than you do in your RV when you're in Arizona, so it's a very different Very diverse community. Should undocumented immigrants also be able to get subsidized health care If they are working in the United States America and they are paying taxes. They should have access to health care. They should have access to everybody else's has access to should undocumented immigrants also be able to get subsidized healthcare. If they are working in the United States America and they are paying taxes. They should have access to health care. They should have access to everybody else's has access to the way trump. The way China will respond is when we gather the rest of the world that, in fact, invasion and free and an open trade and making sure that we're in a position that the world that we deal with is a long way until November, we got more questions. You got more questions by telling if you have a problem figuring out whether you're from mere trump, and you ain't black. I mean, I think it all speaks for itself, speaking in his own words, all right on this Friday, let's get to our busy phones. Let us say hide. ELISA Marie is in new Joy Zee. What's up, Lisa?

Bloomberg taking steps to enter presidential race as a Democrat

"Former New York City Mayor. Mike Bloomberg appears to have taken the first steps to start a presidential campaign today the New York Times first to report that he dispatched staffers in the Great State of Alabama. Today which doesn't have a particularly doesn't have a particularly important role to play at this point in the Democratic primary. Hey but Alabama does have an early filing deadline for candidates getting their name on the ballot for the Democratic primary. So we'll be talking a little bit about that Bloomberg News later Iran tonight. That news is causing lots of buzz and interestingly lots of ripples of speculation about other Democratic candidates who might still still get in. If Mike Bloomberg's apparent move here can be seen as a sign that actually. It's not too late for more Democrats to get into the race to try to win this nomination nation. I will just mention that our Pulitzer Prize winning colleague Eugene Robinson reported online tonight that multiple sources have told. Excuse me that a single source has told him that. Former Attorney General Eric holder has been talking to strategists about whether he ought to get in the race as well again gene Robinson reporting matt tonight with a single source but if eric holder is potentially in the mix and Mike Bloomberg looks like he might be in the mix.

"They understood that some presidents would be quite terrible. They had a term for it. They call it maladministration any president. Who was just an awful president was not one. They thought should be impeached. I had to be somebody who went to step further and was doing things that actively hurt the nation out of their own self interest. Gene Robinson, the Democrats, especially as a frame by speaker Pelosi have always said impeachment or consideration of impeachment has to wait until after the mullahs report after the mullahs report is probably going to be some time around noontime on Thursday. And so we could be in a very different impeachment discussion next week. We don't know what what. Coming but on Thursday, we're all going to be hunkered down. I'm sure you are devouring the mullahs report. What will you go to? I what is the what is the William bar letter left. You wanting to know about I the first thing I'll do is look through to see what is the context of that quote that the bar report lifts from the motor report about. Did not find evidence of a conspiracy between the Russians and the and the Trump campaign's campaign essentially, and it's just that one little sentence. So the first thing I'll do is try try to find that sentence and find what is the context is that the sentence at the at the end of a long recounting of reasons to believe that. Shenanigans bite of going on. But we can't quite prove it or or is it just a flat out. Exoneration as as president claims, which I kind of doubt. But but but that's the first thing. I'll do the second thing I'll do is read deeply into what I expect to be a long section on obstruction of Justice. Robert Muller didn't attempt to. To rule whether the president whether or not the president obstructed Justice William bar made that decision for him for the country. I guess and ultimately for Donald Trump. So I want to know what the balance of the preponderance of evidence says about that question..
