Coming up here in a bit. Anyway, Dick. I don't know if you had a chance because you're giving your news already During the Times. I'm doing interviews. I fully understand that, but I was a bit surprised that Adam Carrington From Hillsdale didn't have a stronger feel of Joan Larsen in the running right because she's in the running for years that she is. Yeah, the list. If we're to believe the list. It had five people on it, I guess. But Joan Larsen was one of them. And certainly we're pulling for. I think having a Michigan andr On the Supreme Court would be great, but, you know, I know I don't know these things because I always thought that Having a Michiganders as president, as we did once with Gerald Ford. I thought early on That Mitt Romney was a guy that Michigan would have wholeheartedly backed as the favorite son of the state. But that didn't happen at all. No way and you know I think it's because Mitt Romney hasn't lived here for years. He halved away decades ago to go to college, and he never came back. He's been the governor in Massachusetts. Now he's a senator in Utah. The name. Romney is strong Iran here but Mitt Romney to most people who know who he is. He's a guy from someplace else. That's an excellent summary of of why I guess people didn't gather around and say, Let's get a Michigan guy in the White House. The Mexican guy was in the White House, Gerald Ford. He didn't have much time to do it. But he did several things for Michigan because he was from Michigan. Believe me, we got some. We got some good favors from Gerald Ford, which is let's face it. What we would expect. That's what we'd want. Yeah. And I don't know what what? They don't know what good graces we be in or what a Supreme Court justice from Michigan in the case of John Larsen could quote unquote do for us other than it brings nice attention to our state, right? I think it drives up our image a little bit. Yeah, And when there's nothing wrong with that. Nope. So anyway, we do know that Kamala Harris is visiting Flint and Detroit today. I'm not sure do we know for sure exactly where she's going to be on these two lovely a bit. She'll be in a couple of small businesses in Flint. And then they'll take her to Detroit exactly where her round table is going to happen. I don't have that information. She's going to have some sort of a meeting with black men. And then a voter registration of that, and I don't I don't have at my fingertips. The exact locations for these So she met with black women and now will be meeting with black men. Never never in an effort to become 11 people not not black, not white, not Hispanic, not anything but all Americans. It seems like this is a setback the way that everything's been being discussed for this. Election year, doesn't it? I mean, we're all in this together, No matter what, somebody wiser than me. What? Who was you sew very well. I mean, you get my point either West. So anyway, so Ray Catholic, another trump potential pick for the bench from Michigan. But he's he's he's made It really sounds like he's a male. Yeah, he has no chance whatsoever in the current. Justin what? I'm just saying black, white male female. There is no such thing is all Being equal in this election summer Maury equal than others, I guess has happened in the past. But you have a man has no chance at this point. Um, well, the president has said it's a woman, so it's a woman so Whatever the way these The way these decisions go the way these things were happening. No wonder we we look to the CDC for any kind of guidance on the disease just to not be on the pandemic virus just to not be involved in the politics. But then we realized if we're dealing with the CDC, we are dealing in politics are there They're tinged with politics, and I Really kind of feel sorry for those officials. Redfield and Dr Fauci, having Tio walk a tightrope between doing their official duties, which are non health and health and safety is not is nonpartisan. And then the political aspect of their jobs because the CDC is on administration agency and whatever the presidency transfers by the way. From one to another. The president usually replaces the director of the CDC. Right? It's funny that you feel sorry for them. I kind of feel sorry for us because they're not.

Lawrence Wright on Researching a (Fictional) Pandemic
"Last book was God Save Texas Nonfiction. I believe there was a play in between and now this just curious how you go from one project to the next and and forgive me if I skipped a project that may have been in between as well years ago. I made a resolution that I would only do things that were important or fun. Was you know the state of confusion about what I wanted to do with my life and I thought I as a journalist I like to be on the important stories of the day but I also realized that it didn't want to give up things that really joyful and so those are the polls stars of my career and I think is sort of understandable that I would now be working on a musical but you know if you take those as your pulse stars in. I think you can have a pretty interesting career. Are they ever important and fun? Yes this book was. I know it sounds you know is is is a rather bleak book but I really had a wonderful time researching it and going into the world of of public health in all these swashbuckling intellectuals I just admire them so much so I I really had a good time working on this book. All right I'm going to cut to the chase and let everyone know who doesn't know already that the end of October is a fictional story of a pandemic so before we get into more about it and want to go back again to the origin stories. You've said that the director Ridley Scott Asks you a question after Reading Cormac. Mccarthy's the road and that that was your inspiration. What was the question? And when did he ask this? When were you sitting around with Ridley Scott talking about this? This was a decade ago and he is questioned was what happened because Cormac didn't say anything. About what event or of nature had brought civilization to heal? So I started thinking about what could do that and of course I thought about nuclear war but I was a young reporter covering diseases out of the Center for Disease Control in one thousand nine hundred ninety six. There's a swine flu outbreak in the legionnaires disease and I had become enchanted with that world and the courage and ingenuity of the people that I found there and so I thought it'd be an interesting place to find a hero because I felt that those people that I met were really heroic and that disease had been underestimated as a problem for our society in modern times. So Ridley Scott ask you this question about a decade ago and you had been thinking about it because you had reported on disease over the years. When did you actually start working on? This novel really never made the movie. So like Mr Destiny of so many projects in Hollywood and about in two thousand seventeen. I've been thinking about this story. Still is in my mind so I decided I would go back and work on work on. It is a knock and this time I would dive into the research even more deeply and let the story emerged more naturally rather than cinematic -ly so that's that's how the novel got started. You are such a master your master of many forms but I love your nonfiction so much. There's so much research material in this. Did you think maybe there should be nonfiction? I DID CONSIDER WRITING ABOUT MORE DISEASES. But you know it already had an imaginary character and a world which it was said. I got attracted to the idea of tempting it as a novel. It seemed a challenge for me and I wanted to see if I could do it. Who WAS THAT IMAGINARY CHARACTER? Will the name of my heroes? Henry Parsons in the late. Nineteenth Century in England. There was another influence of outbreak and a young epidemiologist named Henry. Parsons was the first to prove that it was caused by contagion and not by my asthma's in the environment you know. He's totally forgotten figure. But I decided to tip my hat to him and name my character. Henry Parsons he is a man whose life has been touched rather savagely by disease and works out of the Center for Disease. Control where I had done by early reporting. And he's an epidemiologist who's confronted many diseases in the past but has always known that there was one awaiting him. There was going to be the big challenge so the CDC is in Atlanta Georgia and the United States. But this novel the breakout begins elsewhere. You have it really kind of take hold in Mecca. Why did you choose to do that? We'll after nine eleven when I was working on my book looming tower. The Saudis wouldn't let me in as a reporter so I got a job. I was mentoring young reporters at the Saudi Gazette in Jeddah which had bin Laden's hometown and one of my very first jobs was to supervise their coverage of the Hodge and I was was not allowed to go to Mecca myself but I was in communication every day with my reporters and I was very struck at the time about the hazard of gathering of people in one place from all over the world and having every year some disease arises sometimes more than one and there's an epidemic in Mecca and then people get on airplanes and they fly home. Well you know what if it was something really dangerous suppose it was like the nineteen eighteen flu. That was in my gosh even when I was living in Saudi Arabia enter the CA-. Golly flew right. This is her fictional virus. Tell us about that sickness. And how did you come to describe what this flu would be like? Why a flu even influence is unconquered. It's the great killer it every year. We lose maybe you know fifty thousand people to influence a very dangerous disease. Clever in a way in that has always mutating. And you never know what's going to show up the next year. I mean the the fluid self that comes every year is sort of a descendant of that nineteen eighteen original Spanish flu right. That's correct Pamela. We're right now. The seasonal flu is H. One IN ONE. Which is the strain that killed between fifty and one hundred million people in nineteen eighteen? And I said as a young reporter I had done stories out of the Center for Disease Control but one of them in nineteen seventy six was a sudden outbreak of h one in one which is what public health officials had been dreading their entire careers. And it was a young man of recruit in Army Base Fort Dix in New Jersey. David Lewis suddenly after a Long March. Came back to the barracks in died. They examined the tissues discovered. It was h one n one Tremendous panic took place in. I win all over talking to people in Fort Dix and enter the members of David Lewis is family and so on the big mystery was he was the only one who died and yet you know there was this in national vaccine program and it became kind of catastrophe for Gerald Ford because people got sick from the vaccine. It was just a total mess but hanging over this was peculiar FAC fifty. Two hundred million people died you know a century ago and then only one and then in two thousand nine to the H. One in one came back as a pandemic and it was more like seasonal flu in his still with us but the the question I had was what would happen if something like the nineteen eighteen flu brand new novel virus came into our culture. How would we handle? It will be better prepared than our ancestors were in one thousand nine hundred eighteen and so the the flu that I create Congolese is really modeled on that. Old Virus one that came out in nineteen eighteen. It was also a hemorrhagic fever. You know there was no resistance to it in the population. I actually created a template that is based on the progress of the flu in Nineteen Eighteen. So in the novel the fluid advances across the globe. It pretty much mirrors. What was going on in nineteen eighteen?

The Presidential Pardon the Country Never Forgot
"August ninth one thousand nine hundred seventy four vice president Gerald Ford ascended small stage of the White House and raised Ford was taking over the presidency from Richard Nixon who resigned in disgrace over the Watergate scandal and everything that followed even with four taking over two years after the scandal began the weight of the incident remained a burden on the White House and on a country trying to move on and then just a month after taking office controversy erupted again when Ford employed one of the most powerful function the presidential power a decision that would haunt the rest of his political life there are no historic guard legal precedents is to which I can turn in this matter he pardoned Nixon Mike Conscience tells me that only I as president the constitutional power to firmly shot then seal this book my conscience tells me it is my duty not merely to proclaim domestic tranquillity to use every means that I have to ensure Ford had deliberated with his top aides and secret for days and the reaction to his decision it was swift the New York Times reported the next day that the White House switchboard was jammed with angry calls heavy and constant Ford approval ratings took a dive even his own press secretary resigned in protest the decision probably doomed his chances of reelection in nineteen seventy six four told the post there is a group of bitter people who never forgave me and probably voted against me and the net result is that they probably helped that I didn't win critic saw the pardon as forgiving Nixon's behavior for worse a meeting between Ford and Nixon Chief-of-staff Alexander Haig in the weeks leading to the resignation created suspicion some thought that Ford had struck a deal to pardon Nixon in exchange for becoming president wants Nixon was gone the knee times recounted the encounter after Ford's death writing that Mr Hey told Mr Ford that White House tapes would soon crew Nixon is role in the Watergate cover up and outlined several possibilities for Nixon's departure he handed Mr Ford two pieces of paper the description of the presidential power to pardon and the blink part inform Mr Ford later said he had given no definitive answer but when he described the meeting to his aides they were alarmed at the implication that Nixon through Mr Haig might be offering Mr Ford the president missing in return for a party the to always denied the pardon was part of a quid pro quo Ford tained that his decision stemmed from a desire to shield the country from further harm in fact four testified before Congress about the party in part to have his reasoning on the record and in doing so he became the first sitting president ever to deliver sworn testimony when four died in two thousand six the pardon and its consequences still hadn't faded but history may have finally read with the Thirty Eighth President's version of events on interview late in life with Washington Post order Bob Woodward who unraveled the Watergate scandal with Carl Bernstein Ford explained his true reasoning for pardoning Nixon the economy was trouble the nation was still engaged in the Cold War in the United States could not afford to be swept up in criminal trials over Watergate for years Woodward was suspicious of the Party but Ford convinced him you later said that the pardon was an act of courage rather than the final corruption of Watergate
Public opinion shifting in support of impeachment inquiry
"Steve the impeachment bandwagon seems to be a bandwagon seems to be rolling along it do you think the house will impeach this president. probably yes but I'm not sure that because let's be very clear what they've done they started an impeachment inquiry the the the speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi is very aware. of the political risks here and very leery of the political risks which are considerable in my view there's a new CBS poll out this morning it's a fifty five percent of Americans favor starting an inquiry but only forty two percent at this point favor impeaching the president that tells me it would be extremely divisive. impeachment at its core as a concept is very radical you have to overturn the results of the previous election abscess why it's never happened in our entire history Richard Nixon probably would have been impeached if he stayed in office but apart from that one example yeah and and and it's much more legitimate much more plausible much more frequent to deny a president the second term at the ballot box you happen to George Bush happen to Jimmy Carter happened Gerald Ford so. I think the democratic leadership is very aware are they going to move slowly here and but one of the reasons why they started the impeachment inquiry yes the the the Ukrainian example seems to be easier to understand easier to explain to the public but I think the real reason as defense of extremely frustrated with good reason by the stonewalling tactics at that by this White House they won't produce documents they won't testify they won't answer questions Democrats strategy is if you put impeachment in front of this inquiry it strengthens your hand to give you a lot more of a serious purpose including with federal judges who in the end they're gonna make a lot of the decisions about whether the produce these documents and I think that's at least they're short to mid term strategy is to use the impeachment inquiry to a nurse evidence that they can then use politically against the president in the campaign next year but Steve if she brings us to the brink of impeachment and then pulls back I mean the the hardcore left in the party is going to be furious with her will they not. yeah I mean that's a real risk and let's remember that the one of the reason one of the many many races Hillary Clinton lost in two thousand and sixteen was the disillusionment of the of the Sanders wing of the party right twenty percent to Bernie Sanders voters did not vote for Hillary Clinton according to a very good academic study they voted for trump they didn't they voted for third parties like the Green Party why they didn't vote at all and if you follow that pattern and dissolution the hardcore left it's gonna make it a lot harder to be Donald Trump the ballot box so she has a lot of choices most of which are. filled with a lot of risk. Steve the democratic talking points here on this impeachment process is trump asks the head of Ukraine do me a favor investigate by that's the simple approach to they want to take how do you see the trump White House countering that I got a hint of it this morning I saw Bernie Kerik on fox he is now calling the whistle blower of Colbert operator who is trying to state part of a coup attempt on this presents a how do you see the trunk White House fighting back here. well I think that that's definitely part of the argument you know trump himself is said I need to confront my will the whistle blower he's he's raised that that that whistle blowers a spy yes said that with the you know he keeps throwing the word treason around so I think they're going to try as they did with Robert Muller to totally discredit the investigation to you know to try to discredit Mahler it's a closet Democrat and and and and a partisan and they're gonna try to do exactly the same thing this is a this is a very clear pattern of trumped trying to discredit of anybody who is an independent fact finder he's done that with the media he's done it with federal judges he's done it with weather forecasters he's right I mean this is a very very clear pattern of anybody who is an independent fact finder trying to deny their legitimacy plus I think by using words like cool and deep state and conspiracy this is all designed to stir up his base his strategy is very clear he's not reaching beyond space if you look at the at the CBS poll thirty six percent of Americans say under no circumstances should trump be impeached that is almost precisely what his bases I've studied it very carefully his face is about thirty seven percent. it doesn't take a mathematical genius to figure out the it's hard to win an election with thirty seven percent of the vote so he's got to get every single one of those votes he's got to maximize the intensity of the turn out that all this talk about conspiracies and deep stated it is so much I at the heart of trump's appeal which is see I told you they're all out to get me they're all out to get you they're all out to get us all right ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts good to have you back with the Steve

Royal, Switzer, spying and one big Showdown
"It's october ninth nineteen seventy six at the cotton cotton bowl in dallas texas. President gerald ford is annoyed. He's moments away from escorting the head coaches of texas and oklahoma onto the field for the pre-game regain coin toss. A crowd of seventy thousand fans is ready to erupt half of them wearing burnt orange for texas the other half in oklahoma crimson. It's a wild scene. He'd love to enjoy but right now. His mind is elsewhere seventy two hours ago. He lost the upcoming presidential election. Well not officially. There's still a month before election day but he made a huge mistake in a debate with jimmy carter with millions watching on tv and now all hope feels feels lost so as the three men begin walking towards midfield president is in no mood for small talk but he is still the president and it is kind of his job to make small talk in situations like this so he's got to come up with something the only problem the two coaches flanking him mm-hmm hate each other just a few minutes ago an aide found ford in the bowels of the stadium to brief him on the coaching situation mr president don't try to drum trauma conversation with these two guys. They don't like each other at all. As ford leads the men onto the field texas coach darrell royal is stone faced in no mood for chitchat now with the president and certainly not with barry switzer oklahoma's head coach. It's not not just because royal and the longhorns lost five straight games to switzer's oklahoma teams but that's definitely a factor. It's more than that to royal. Switzer is is it dirty cheap and in the days leading up to today. He's made that clear so much so that he challenged switzer to take a lie detector test to prove switzer isn't trying to steal inside information from texas and so as the three men crossed the twenty yard line. He's not gonna act like everything's fine. Royal hates the dude and and president ford definitely isn't going to change that with some idle as far as royals concerned switzer's a crook his teams already been on probation asian for recruiting violations new evidence came to light this week that switzer's planting spies at texas practice so that's what's going through his mind as president ford strolls with them to the fifty yard line royals so piston fact that he even promised to donate ten thousand dollars to charity if switzer agrees to that polygraph polygraph test. It's it's worth more money to me to have him looking for ghosts. Switzer replied dismissively. He always denies any allegation that that he's somehow spied on texas as oklahoma's head coach when a reporter told royal what switzer said this time the texas coach nearly spit his response aw sorry bastards. I don't trust on anything. The funny thing is royals right about the spying but so is switzer. The spying actually happened happened in one thousand nine hundred seventy two four years earlier. When switzer wasn't the head coach an assistant with the sooners before that year's game a friend of an oklahoma coach dressed up as a construction worker and watch texas practice inside their stadium. He then tipped off. Oklahoma coaches that texas might lineup for a quick kick punt on third third down and during the game texas did exactly that and oklahoma was ready and blocked it. The sooners went onto win twenty-seven nothing now four years later when the same oklahoma spy got a little loose lipped after a few drinks with the texas booster word got back to texas and darrell royal right right before this year's game so now switzer and royal are standing awkwardly with the leader of the free world doing everything they can to ignore each other after the coin flip. The president politely shakes each of their hands the coaches then reluctantly shake each other's hands and they both go back to focusing on what what they do best coaching football. The game turns out to be an epic defensive struggle. It ends deadlocked in a six six tie. That satisfies exactly no one. It's the last game royal coach against oklahoma. He feels like he's aged. A decade these past three hours and it's becoming becoming clearer that he's just too old to keep up with switzer's relentless nature on and off the field at the end of the season at fifty eight years old old darrell royal will retire but for now he can't help it just as it was years before when he beat his old coach bud wilkinson. His stomach is in knots. What's he pauses on his way to the locker. Room doubles over and throws up

Our long national nightmare. Is over. Except that it's not and accept that. It wasn't and our reliance our collective national exile as a country are feeling. Oh, good. Now, everything is over because Nixon has resigned, and then Nixon had been pardoned. And therefore there is nothing else to be scared of. Let's think about what happened in nineteen seventy three nineteen seventy four and shortly thereafter. Bartley became the editorial page editor the Wall Street Journal. Ended up turning that paper a direction that ended up with him. Earning the distinction as the most influential editorial page editor of his time. Phyllis schlafly blocked. Passage of the equal rights amendment. Conservative political action committee. You might have heard of that CPAC. It has the conferences every year. It was founded. The Heritage Foundation was founded national right to life. Founded nineteen seventy four focus on the family founded nineteen seventy seven. Nineteen seventy eight was proposition thirteen and the modern antitax anti public services movement. The end of the Nixon administration was not the end of the conservative movement. The end of the Nixon administration was not a dawn of greater transparency. It was not a dawn of addressing climate change. It was not a flourishing of democracy. It was not an emboldening of the people who have been fighting for the for civil rights and for voting rights. It was not a flourishing going forward to the middle class. In fact, starting in one thousand nine hundred eighty was when the burgeoning middle class which had been growing since World War Two started to shrink. Our long national nightmare was not over. Then. Is not over. Now. It wouldn't have been over even if Bill Barr had issued a different report, even if what amounts to what Bill Safire called the cover up general it he had done something very differently. It wouldn't have been over. And it's not over now. So how do we react to that? Well, I've been saying personally that we shouldn't be putting all of our faith and existing institutions.

My welcome questions any reactions. Yes, sir in the back. Obviously Saturday Night Live a lot of friends stuff. What do you think? I'll repeat it. Go ahead. Yeah. What are they think of Saturday Night Live? I station. Yeah. Okay. That's a really hard question to answer in any way that will get general assent. So a lot of it depends on how much you dislike the presence because they Night Live which started airing during the presidency of Gerald Ford. And Gerald Ford was the first victim. Saturday Night Live and Saturday Night Live really did change the context for presidential humor. Because it was the first regularly scheduled satire spoof on presidents. And in a certain sense. It was an equal opportunity caricaturist and satirist. And so it really didn't matter what the politics of the president were they the the cast on Saturday Night Live went after who ever happened to be in the White House because their business was to get laughs and to sort of make fun of presidents, but it really did. It raised the bar for a president's ability to roll with a joke. And Gerald Ford Gerald Ford was quite unfairly lampooned, but in fact, Lampoon's are always unfair. They're great exaggeration. In Ford's case, it was an entirely mischaracterization so Chevy. Chase was the one who is part of the original cast of Saturday Night Live and he used to do the stumbled down the steps of Air Force One, and you know, pull the tablecloth off the table and do all this clumsy stuff giving out the impression that Gerald Ford. Was this stumble bum? When in fact, Ford was probably the best athletes when the most graceful individuals to occupy the White House and Ford could have tried to dispute this characterization of him. But he was shrewd enough to realize it would have been a waste of time. So he basically grinned, and bore it. But there was one particular occasion. I don't remember exactly the context where he had A a. chance to make a little bit of a comeback. Now, again, this is this falls in the category of you might need this punchline explained, but I'm going to go with it. Anyway, so Chevy Chase has been lampooning Gerald Ford's for some while and the two of them meet on some particular occasion. And and Jodi chase sort of wants to let Ford know that this is all in good fun. And so he says Gerald Ford, you're really actually a very good president and Ford without missing a beat says and you Chevy Chase are a very funny suburb. But I will tell you for for my money for my money. The best presidential Saturday night. Live connection is one that goes full circle with Dana Carvey, and George Hw Bush. So Dana Carvey became famous for his characterization of Bush and Bush's sometime sort of telegraphic style of speech, and wow Bush was president he now he would smile. Yeah. That's funny funny. So after he left the White House he no longer had to do that. But George H W Bush, I had the honour and the pleasure to encounter a few times. They used to teach a Texas A&_M at the George Bush school of public service. And so I got to meet him. He would come to my classes. And and he always struck me as one of the most decent individuals to occupy the. White House, and the most I had no idea that he had this sense of humor and this capacity for humor, but he was not long after he left the White House and about the time that his presidential library was opening and school was opening it, Texas, ain't he gave a closed door address to students at taxes closed door in the sense that the press was not allowed and one of the things that presidents often have a hard time with him, and George H W Bush really had this problem when the press was around he sort of had act presidential. And so we often came across as kind of wooden Lyndon Johnson had the same problem. And but once there he knew there were no report is in the room. There were no cameras. He could just sort of let himself go, and he did an imitation of Dana Carvey imitating himself, and I have to tell you this audience of students. He's were undergraduates and they've. They had no particular opinion of George Bush one way or the other. But they were almost literally rolling in the aisles and finally Barbara Bush had to pull out the hook and say, you know, get out of here. He's not he's not a comedian. So that's what I remember about Saturday Night, Live and presidents other questions. Reactions. Yes. Okay. So circling back to your initial talk about the president this president and George Washington, assuming it's like humor lack of humor that's the similar characteristics. So could you expound on that a little bit? Yeah. So one of the striking things to me about President Trump is his what shall I say, his lack of an observable sense of humor and not even any attempts to fake it. I would've said I would've said before President Trump was elected course, I was at a lot of things I had very different expectations about changes in the presidency. And I sort of thought they were unroll of Acapulco that these changes were permanent, and I had to change a lot of that. But every president really from about well, definitely from John Kennedy or you could say to even earlier than that had to at least fake a sense of humor. And sometimes it meant just laughing at jokes people told about you sometimes. It would be telling jokes yourself, and so president would sort of do this sort of thing. And I assumed and it just sort of seems it seems logical that if you want to get the support of people you try to do stuff that will make you likeable and make you popular and every president did and presidents very often Brock Obama, for example, often it plays into this stereotype, however, false the stereotype might be in and in one of his last speeches before the national Correspondents Club president for a long time. They would give their sort of their. Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, monologues sort of thing. And Obama at this case he showed up before and after picture of him. So here he is as president. And he's got a lot of grey hair. And here he is before he becomes president. And he says I ask those days when I was a a strapping young, Muslim socialist. But Donald Trump has definitely took a different route to the White House. And I'm not I wasn't quite so surprised at the different route to the White House because he was the ultimate of the anti establishment candidate, and he was essentially playing into people's anger people's anger at the establishment and Donald Trump. Liked to liken himself to Andrew Jackson as the anti establishment candidate and president. I think that there's less similarity between the individuals Trump and Jackson, then there is in that people who voted for them in both cases, it was a rejection of this entrenched elite and the people who voted for Andrew Jackson against John Quincy Adams. We're very much of the same mindset as the people who voted for Donald Trump against Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton was clearly the candidate of the establishment and Trump was the outsider. And so the idea of sort of mobilizing that dissatisfaction that anger as part of the campaign. I didn't find surprising. I was surprised that it actually worked as well. As it did. But. But then I was surprised when there was and I would say until now they're still has not been any effort to broaden the base of people who chose him and President Trump has I don't know if this is a deliberate decision, or if it's just he operates on gut instinct, he seems soon it got him to the White House. So you can't say it's not worth anything, but he seems to be content with appealing to his base and not really trying much to broaden the base. And if that's what you're going to any holds rallies, he holds political rallies. This is something no president no sitting president dead. In fact, few presidents, even before they were elected. You can't hold the kind of rallies, but the idea of holding the rallies after you've been elected is something brand new and a scene and the point of the rally seems to be to keep stoking dissatisfaction with the status quo. Ronald Reagan did it to a certain degree even after four years as. President Reagan ranch tried to run as the anti establishment candidate. It's boy you can pull it off. It's great. But it's hard to pull it off. After you've been at the center of the establishment as president. So I don't know if this is a new model, so President Trump has been able to accomplish what he's accomplished with no observable sense of humor. Now, again, I don't know if he's a funny guy until his jokes to family or other thing other people, but he seems to make at least so far make little or no effort to do it as president. Now is this something new or is this an aberration? As I get asked questions about the meaning of the Trump presidency fairly often. And my answer is to take the historians dodge and say that it's too early to tell. And as I want to say historians can really run with that a long way. So Edward given wrote six volume history of the decline and fall of Roman empire, which is published in the late seventeen hundreds and it was describing events that had happened a thousand years before and he was once asked so what's what is the lasting significance of Rome? And you know, what he said too soon to tell. But I can give you a date a precise date on which will be no longer too soon to tell and that is election day twenty twenty and the reason I say this is that president who make a lasting Mark on the American political system who are elevated into the ranks of really important presidents are exclusively those presidents who get reelected the president's for whom voters have a chance to vote on their performance presidents, get elected the first time on the promise. And promise is one thing you can be a persuasive her, but it doesn't always pay off. And maybe you don't deliver on your promises, or you change your mind or something. So I'm not gonna say that anybody can get elected on the promise, but you can get elected on promises and not follow through you get elected on the performance and any president who puts himself, and they're all hymns until now puts himself up for re-election, basically is asking for well in a British context of this would be a vote of confidence and voters reelect. You buy however, small and Arjun even if the second go round in two thousand twenty should be with the minority of the popular vote. We've got this set of rules, and if under those rules, you win the net says the American people liked what you did. Now, does it mean they like what you did an absolute sense in. An ideal world. No, they only like you better than the person you're running against, but that's the standard in every election. Nobody gets to run sort of against nothing you run and get somebody else in often votes are negative votes. We don't like the other scoundrel worse than this idiot. So, but but nonetheless, if Donald Trump should get reelected and get the second term, then pretty much all of the changes that he is. He a now has he's announced and changes to American foreign policy changes to American domestic policy. Those will have received the ratification of voters..

And you mentioned okay, going back that debate on we're gonna jump around with George Bush that was that famous debate where like Reagan's campaign paid for it. And that's where he's hits that famous line. Like, I paid for this Mike microphone and for some reason dropped down the house at. Yeah. It was it was very famous bay. It occurred for the end of the new Amtra primary when he George Bush for running neck and neck he was tumultuous night. And in the book, I really dramatize it 'cause it was full drama which tried to keep. The other candidates who running dole. Howard Baker Phil crane in John Anderson off the debate stage in Reagan one of them on the debate stage and in the band room at the school where they were holding the debate. I mean, they were all screaming at each other. It was incredible Bush was on the stage waiting for Reagan. And Reagan brought up the other people. The other candidates on stage and bushes. People would not let them speak Bush wouldn't even look at Ronald Reagan. He would will get him in the eye. And so once the other candidates west, and it was just Bush and Reagan on this day, but fell apart and and Reagan kind of never forgave him for that. When it came time to choose vice president later on George Bush was the obvious choice Reagan's mind flashback that night New Hampshire thought, I don't want a guy who falls apart as. Vice president, but they struck a deal after that. Of course, you not that turned out. No turns out so he becomes president. What was his leadership style? Like as president was similar to what he did as governor of California sort of delegate a very hands off. Yeah. Absolutely. You know, Reagan Reagan was not the smartest man in the room. And he knew it, you know, he his ego wasn't so big that he he couldn't hire experts at rely on the revised which is what he did. He had a fantastic chief of staff in Jim Baker. He had Emmys the blasting him on us politics. Mike Deaver Oval Office who ended up at all of his personal things, and he deferred to these people especially to his national security people. He listened to them. He sifted through information. He chose the best people and often he changed his mind on based on what they had told. And. Annan Reagan again in I can't emphasize this too strongly was willing to reach across the aisle to make compromises to bring the Democrats in the his phone and to get things accomplished. And he did there was no infighting. You know, they disagreed on policy. Reagan Democrats, but there is no fighting or hurling insults or disparaging someone's character. Or I mean, there was just none of that..

"That would work for me. So. Love. It. Can't see the shoes. I was looking at that. And it's like a robe if if that ended at the knee, it would look like little red riding hood, it would be so cute. But it goes all the way to the ground, and that's Satan. That's Satan's work. Yeah. That's it seems robe. Okay. They decide they're going to change their names to the nicknames Manson used to call them. So squeaky changes, her nickname from her horrible nickname to read because the clever rate he called a red because of her hair and her love of the redwoods. Hippies and. No, no, Sarah. He called blue because of her eyes and the ocean. He's not very clever. I mean, look. Say what you want about Charles Marie Manson, but he has. Words, he's e. He's like a little nut. So poet. Okay. Now, just moving on for some fun. That's her robe in color. See how from like shoulders up. It's like that's kind of cute is. She is sexy fairytale girl. No, no. She's crazy. Let's see here. Okay. So in nineteen seventy-five Wiki read from reaches out to a Jimmy Page's. The VP of his record label and says I have foreseen something over Jimmy page, and I must speak with him that works, right? This is seventies. When you just call record labels and just be like, I need to speak to Jimmy page. Please. The vice president of the record labels a guy named Danny Goldberg. And he was like, no, I think she actually went there. I can't figure it out. But basically he said she said that she had foreseen vision where bad energy is going to get Jimmy page. And so she needed to talk to him and so- Danny Goldberg from the record label was like maybe you can talk to him tomorrow, but you should probably leave. And then she was like tomorrow it'll be too late. And so he says leave a note. Thanks so much for dropping by. And then the second she leaves? He burned the note. That's she was. Yes, cool. That's just a little I would just giving a little color kind of crazy shit. Squeaky was up to. So now, we get to the task at hand when she's twenty six years old. She learned president Gerald Ford. He's just asked congress remember him. He no. I remember in like second grade, they made us write letters to him. And I didn't know what to say. So I said I wish you were my uncle. Uncle face. He's he's very take a quarter out of your ear song killer. The man is killer Vike Lear uncle of killer. Yes of Funchal or we didn't work shopping. It. President Gerald Ford decided in nineteen around this seventy three seventy four seventy five. That he wants to start relaxing some of the provisions on that old bothersome sixty three Clean Air Act. Yeah. So you might remember that squeaky loves the, redwoods and nature general and she's livid and. She's very concerned about the environment. And so she's watching the news and her piece street apartment, and she sees that the president's going to be in Sacramento to speak at this Akron convention center for a bunch of wealthy, California. Business leaders. Yes, what a great place. All the good stuff happens walls and the door rounded at the tone. Total guests. I've never been there. So he's staying at the Senator hotel on L street, and it's like a fifteen minute walk from squeaky, Peachtree street apartment. Perfect. So she decides she's going to bring attention to the trees. This is what she later said by putting fear into the government. But killing it simple president Gerald Ford. What a fucking psycho. It's not a good plan. It's straight up crates crazed. Also trees are great. Yes, for sure. Absolutely. People are good too. Yeah. I bet you anything if trees could talk. They would be like wore not down with killing people. I think they would. I don't. Yes, I think they're like old hippies. Totally and they're like pay me who've been. Absolutely. To wrap this up. Okay. So okay. So the morning of September fifth squeaky throws on her old red robe, and she grabs a forty five caliber Colt, m one nine one one or nineteen eleven I don't know. Semi automatic revolver. She straps that motherfucker to her left leg underneath the red. Like a psychotic little red riding hood. And she heads on down to the capital grant. I'm sure the FBI security people are like that one. Just keep your eye honor. We don't know she could have muffins..
