Congress Tackles Military Sexual Assault
"And institutional changes in the military that would target the growing problem of sexual violence within the armed forces. Critics and victims say the current practice of reporting sexual assault up the chain of command leads to the little to no justice for the victims and often exacerbates the problem. Defense secretary Austin said that he supports the proposed solution of replacing military chains of command with independent military lawyers. It's a recommendation from the Independent Review Commission on sexual assault and sexual harassment in the military, But I fully support removing the prosecution of sexual assaults and related crimes. From the military chain of command. We are prepared to work with Congress to amend the Uniform Code of Military justice. IRC also recommended the inclusion of others special victims crimes inside this independent prosecution system. To include domestic violence, and I support this as well. Given the strong correlation between these sorts of crimes and the prevalence of sexual assault. The two leading lawmakers on the issue of sexual assault in the military say the proposed changes don't go far enough.

"I'm just telling you my opinion and that for due process about due process as a criminal term. That's designed to say. No one can be convicted of a crime and punished for that crime before they have due process. I'm not convicting anybody of anything. I'm not punishing anybody for anything. I'm just giving my opinion. And so now the governor has said. I'm waiting which is his right. Which al frankin chose not to do. The governor's waiting. He's gonna go through that investigation. That will probably take two or three months. It's gonna take a long time and he's going to wait for the assembly to decide whether or not to impeach him and he'll go through that process and all the while all i wanna do in my job in the senate is just help people. I wanna get this covert relief money out. I want to help the small businesses that we heard about from earlier. I want to help the first responders. And so that's where we are. And i'm sorry that you think it's wrong of women to voice opinions or elected leaders to voice opinions and lastly you have an announcement. Today i see as legislation. You're on the armed services committee. So people don't even know what a burn pit is in many cases. Tell us about this so during the global war on terror the army built massive open air burn pits to dispose of waste. The waste include things like computers electronics equipment chemicals clothing and they lit it on fire with jet fuel and they burned those burn pits twenty four hours a day and our service worked ate and slept near those burn pits. They breathed in these horrible toxins and unfortunately they came home with cancers and respiratory diseases. This is something. I am very familiar with because the nature of what was burned in those burn pits. Is that the same thing that was burned on nine eleven because when the towers collapsed it was electron ix. It was building materials. It was computers chemicals all the same things and so the type of diseases that these men and women who served in our military are getting are very similar to the nine eleven diseases. And so i believe that there needs to be a presumption that if you served anywhere near burn pit and you're sick that you are covered We know from the nine eleven Work that we can over time. Prove the links epidemiologically because we did it for nine eleven. But i don't think we should be making our service members and our veterans prove that each time they get sick because that's what they're being forced to do we know that three point five million People have been exposed to burn pits. that's an estimate from the va. there's two hundred and thirty thousand that already registered As part of the burn pits registry and thousands of service member service members Were exposed at other basis. That are very similar so we know this is a population that needs support. And so any veteran who served as part of the global war on terror Or the gulf war would be covered and having Marco rubio is..

"In regards to sexual harassment story we're dealing with essentially unethical but not illegal behavior. But that's burying of the lead because in this case is vastly more important to be or to talk about the doctoring of official figures that he had nursing home deaths from the justice, part men, officials, New York legislators and, more importantly, the general public. You're listening to Saturday night on the circle. I'm your humble host Ethan Hampshire producer Donnie on the board. Of course, I'm referring to the ongoing scandal of Governor Cuomo. And it appears things are just getting worse. Republicans finally waking up to the fact that they understood up and do something, even though they're not in a position of power in the state of New York in the New York State Assembly On Monday, they announced an impeachment resolution against Governor Cuomo, saying they believe Democratic governor has lost credibility and trust and has an inability. The lead of the state. Of New York. This is amid his sexual harassment allegations which have been levied against him. Investigators are investigations already underway into the handling of his Corona virus pandemic. State Assembly Minority Leader Will bar play announced Republicans won't be able to force the vote or wouldn't be able to force the vote but would keep pounding the issue. They received a quick payoff because Thursday the situation there already changed now. Currently the investigation not far yet far along and focused on that the top members of Cuomo's coronavirus task force, the Albany Times Union, reported, which cited to source with direct knowledge of the matter. Neither Cuomo or administration officials have yet at this point I've been accused of wrongdoing when it comes to either of the matters now. Thursday, Majority of state legislators called for his right Resignation, including Democrats. The Democrats launched an impeachment impeachment investigation, and police in the state capital say they stood ready for an investigate to investigate a groping allegation. At least 100 21, members of the State Assembly and Senate's have said publicly they believe Cuomo should quit office. Now, according to Italia, taken by The Associated Press count includes 65 Democrats and 56 Republicans. Which is an astounded figure, Democrat Assemblywoman Alan Gunther said. All of us are extremely disappointed. I think there's no room in the world right now, for that kind of behavior. He should have known better now, one of the aspects of this story that I think few people have mentioned is that that this is Ah. This is a culture of the Andrew Cuomo administration. This is a news. This isn't a surprise. People who have been associate ID with Andrew Cuomo have been well familiar with this behavior. Now AIDS air, starting to speak about the culture in the office, which required Cuomo to groom and hire attractive young women to be in his employ, which is a clear abuse of the power dynamic when you're specifically seeking that type of situation Mission and setting that type of situation up. It gets better because now Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and majority of House Democrats from New York, including representatives Jerry Nadler and exact Alexandria Cossio Cortez joined the chorus on Friday, calling for the governor to resign. Nadler, the powerful chair of the House Judiciary Committee, said that Latino James investigation into the harassment allegations against the governor should Continue, but there's a difference between formal investigations that may end up in charge is any question of confidence in our political leadership of Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of the people of New York and Governor Cuomo must resign and that was coming from Jerry Nadler. So, yes, even Democrats now joining the chorus of calls For Governor Cuomo to resign, and it's amazing how the course of one individual can be completely changed in just a year, because you know, a year ago, this guy was being featured prominently on National News by July, Anthony Fauci said that New York was the model of pandemic response. Hey, want a primetime Emmy and then now the world Is collapsing around Andrew Cuomo.

Right now. The sexual harassment allegations are not criminal in nature, they are merely unquestionably unethical. But that is wholly different and magnitude from the nursing home death from the causing of individuals to lose members of their family. Certainly that represents a Maura significant and agree Jin's egregious breach of trust from the New York governor. Pretty interesting stuff. Also representatives an idea of the last quest.

We're verging on a monsoon sort of. I. Probably just a rainstorm, but it did feel very scary. Can you. Can you tell me what happened so Connie tells the story better than me, but apparently because I do remember it But apparently, we were out shopping having fun in Beijing on and off afternoon and this huge rainstorm comes in and just stress pelting down and get back to campus the only way to get there was to our bikes back and I think it was about a twenty minute ride the rain was coming down so severely that you couldn't see right in. Front of you, and so I was getting very frightened and I knew my girlfriend's were very frightened. So I I lead the charge and we started to sing like as many like childhood songs. We could remember to just not lose each other in the rate storm, and so we were just like belting out childhood twos for the entire twenty minute journey in the rain and so Connie concludes from that example that I am indeed fearless and will. Lead the way through any rainstorm that's needed. So she's very kind to tell us strike but I can tell you straight about coty. So okay with China, we were invited to the embassy to go to their fourth of July party, the US embassy, and so we went to the fourth of July party and they had a lip synching contest. So Connie, who is most talented of all of us. Not only choreographed routine We did a routine to one of the Madonna songs at the time I'm not sure which, but it was but we won first place and so Connie knew i. knew that she'd be a great actor and she had limitless talent so.

The very first thing you said to her was, how can I help? and. She talks about how it's an integral part of who you are and. I think anyone who's had the pleasure of spending time with you. Guy Have knows that and witnesses that and I'm curious 'cause I always like to ask people who are doing these amazing things. Now, what they were like back then were you as a child you know where you the were you the little kid who walked into every room saying, how can I help? Sort of but I I definitely likes helping people. I was a girl Scout and I really loved girl scouts. I really liked trying to sell cookies, raise money for a lot of the work they do and that was fun.

I go put these on every car in that parking lot. I said really grandma every car she said, yes every car. So I was helping any way I could back then but I do remember my first campaign headquarters experience. I was about ten years old and I joined a bunch of ladies stuffing envelopes so that they could help their candidate that shared their values win, and so I just remember that pitching in and doing what what needs to be done is the best thing that you can do for any cause or any person that needs advocacy and so that's really what drew me ultimately to public service so that I could be voiced for those who don't have a strong voice or be a voice for.

It's why I go down to the front lines of Georgia and the front lines across the country fighting for choice in Missouri I. It's why I take on the issues of hunger You know how many lobbyists get hired to advocate to end hunger about zero.

So. It's looking pretty good for Joe Biden and there's a reasonable chance. Democrats could win the White House ANTIBAC- a Senate next year if that were to happen, what would what do you think the first order of business would be for? Democrats. What is the most important thing to deal with first Democrats took the house in two thousand, eighteen they passed hr wine, which had a lot of. Cleanup Clean Government procedures, anti corruption, a provision, and things like that. What would the Senate be interested in a Democratic Senate? Well, certainly, I support every provision in hr one. So getting money out of politics having ethics reform good government reforms that's hundred percent necessary but I think going to be still in the middle of Kobe. So I think we need to pass whatever Mitch. McConnell is not willing to let us do. We can pass a hopeless one of the first bills would ever not passed in this code for package. We could then move along with whatever's needed at that moment in time but sitting state money getting rid of the salt changes for state and local deductions in Newark has been crippling for middle class families making sure we fund. The local governments and states that desperately need our resources That's going to be a priority. No matter what they don't see McConnell allowing those provisions are always all of them to go through. Joe Biden is willing to raise taxes. Our audience finance cares a lot about this because he one of his policies is to raise the business tax from twenty one percent up to twenty eight percent. Let's still lower than it was a few years ago could Congress conceivably do that in twenty twenty one in the middle or immediate aftermath of this recession wherein? Will absolutely Congress would certainly debate issues taxes to see what makes sense but I think where we really want to focus our attention is on access to healthcare improving education system a job training that's where the common ground lies in this country healthcare education jobs, and so I think the agenda will be focused more is that as well as getting my etta politics because we've seen the corruption in corrosion of democracy because special interests and so one of my priorities will be getting money out of politics is there shingle provision you would champion right now? For the future yet gnashing money our politics Oh yes. My provision which I wrote during the presidential campaign It's called democracy dollars in it basically says, if you're willing to be a publicly funded candidate than you agree, you won't accept contributions over two hundred dollars and then you you accept contributions in the form of a democracy dollar from the voters that. Would vote for you and then that can be reimbursed for resources for your campaign on that alone would change everything because they did that in Seattle and it changed to ran it change to one and participation amongst women lower income individuals, minorities increased exponentially, and so it made a difference it creates good government and then the things that seems so impossible like. gun reform or immigration reform.

"Welcome to Yahoo Finance percents I'm Rick Newman join us today Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York senator. Gillibrand. Good to see you again. Thank you. We're GONNA talk about the stimulus bill. A lot of people are very eager to know where this is likely to end up. So the Democrats have already passed a bill of House Democrats. I should say, that's about three trillion dollars in stimulus the Republicans in the Senate bill for one trillion. So is it fair to say that this is likely to come out somewhere in the range of, let's say one and a half one, point seven trillion or so at the end of the process. We. Don't really know There's not a lot of meeting of the minds I'm most aspects of this legislation yet. Democrats are desperate to fund our cities, our states, and our local governments I just talked to to the county executives from Ireland, and they're facing budget shortfalls. The next eighteen months of about a billion dollars each. So it's hugely important that we fund our local state governments in fact, local and state governments and budgets are a third of our. GDP. So we really do need to care about how our local governments are working. So, there's no agreement there and there's no agreement on some of the overarching themes of what we want to support. This is still a triage. Ville we want money for food stamps. We want money for sick days money for paid leave money for first responders and healthcare professionals more P p. e..

"Allows the allegation of harassment. Brought up into the open it allows to have juries decide these cases to have a courts of law decide these cases that are transparent. And it's a better way to hold perpetrators accountable. It's a public system. It's not done in private. It's not done behind closed. Doors and getting rid of both the forced arbitration and the nondisclosure agreements that allow survivors to come forward and hold their perpetrators accountable publicly so that they can not continue to harass and not continue to get away with it just by fighting a settlement one the reasons we rewrote the laws in the Senate and the house was because the way it was set up it took three months to even report that you are being harassed and then when you when you did go through this process you're month of mandatory cancelling for you the survivor and a mandatory cooling off period just was designed to make sure you'd never reported so we were able to get that bill signed into law. December. Twenty one two thousand eighteen and it's really good. Bipartisan compromise. Several bills that were introduced by me and my colleagues and it just makes a better system where members of Congress if they are accused and found have harassed they will be personally liable for playing the awards and settlements stemming from their acts of harassment. Right and I think that the other affect of being able to know that you can go to an open. Jury process is that it might actually stop harassers from harassing right. Once they once they know that women have a voice in the system. They're like Oh maybe I'll change my behavior. Potentially you know so I think that. There's there's a dual effect there gretchen and Senator Gillibrand have been working on a bill that would avoid forced arbitration for sexual harassment and discrimination claims in Workplaces America. Gretchen and Senator Gillibrand Bill. The ending forced arbitrations of sexual harassment. Act Was introduced to the Senate in two thousand seventeen alongside Republican Lindsey Graham. The plan is to rally representatives on both sides of the political spectrum. Gretchen launched a national organization dedicated ending practices that prevent employees from discussing workplace harassment and assault in late. Two Thousand Nineteen. She founded lift our voices with her former colleague from Fox Julie Roginsky..

"Gretchen. Carlson once have been forced arbitration and workplace sexual harassment discrimination cases forced arbitration clauses in Employment Contracts Shield companies and perpetrators from public scrutiny. They also stripped workers of their right to be judged by jury. Workers pushed into arbitration are often required to sign confidentiality or nondisclosure agreements meaning. They can't speak out publicly. It's a system that shields harasses and discriminates against Workers Gretchen has first hand experience of forced arbitration in two thousand sixteen. The Star journalist was demoted and then fired from Fox News after refusing. Sexual advances from her boss. Roger Ailes. She went public with her complaint. Prompting many other women at Fox to come forward their own allegations. Roger ailes resigned but not before he attempted to force Gretchen into secret. Arbitration Gretchen has since teamed up with the Democratic Senator Gillibrand to change the law around forced arbitration. The senator has been allowed critic of sexual assault and harassment throughout her political career most recently on the campaign trail as a Democratic presidential candidate. She has advocated for survivors of sexual assault on college. Campuses and in the military Senator Gillibrand and Gresh and Carlson won a safer and fair workplace for people across the country. They're women there. We have been fighting about changing the law so that when people get harassed at work when they have a boss or colleague who is constantly harassing them on the basis of their gender that they don't have to restrict they can take their claim right now. Most employment agreements have these forced arbitration clauses as well as nondisclosure agreements set into their employment contract and so they when they start working they just. They don't even know that they're bound by these and what we found. Is that when you do come forward because you've been harassed and are forced into arbitration? A number of things happen typically. The landscape isn't as good as a trial would be typically a trial results in more convictions and much higher rewards for harassment in terms of actual financial compensation. But if you have to go through arbitration you're likely to get a smaller award and you might not even win. It's sometimes an opportunity to be out lord and the companies typically have so much disproportionately more power than you. As an employee does and so at our bill would do is end force arbitration it would void forced arbitration agreements that prevent sexual harassment survivors from getting the justice. They need so it'd be a just across the board void and that would allow more people to go to court if they WANNA be heard by a jury of their peers exactly and you know the other thing is you. Don't get the same amount of witnesses and arbitration. You don't get the same amount of discovery. The worst thing that I think happens. Is that the the woman or the man. If the man happens to be a victim is is silenced. Forever and the perpetrator gets to stay on the job because nobody knows about it and then because of the nondisclosure agreement you can't even tell your colleagues can't tell your girlfriends the workplace like avoid that guy because this is what he did to me so it's really hard because it allows perpetrators to stay in place to continue to harass and it's very problematic..

"How awesome and strong line, the face of adversity or you were really handled a lot of things, and that's cool. But let's be honest about it yet. No, there's, there's certainly a moment where she's talking toward the beginning of her move toward political career where it's like, okay, how do I get into politics, right? I give a bunch of money to politicians and I was like, well, I can't do that. Right. Writing big checks to Senator Clinton. Yes. Made it up. Maybe that's what she's talking about when she says make your own luck. Yeah. Write your own. Check anyone who listened to our Kirsten gillibrand episode knows some of the story of Jilib, rans, grandmother Polly, and I have also heard her talk about paulie a couple times when I've seen her in person at events, but I really love. I mean, I think you could just write like a whole biography of her grandmother Pauline Noonan, and it would be super fascinating. Because her grandma was quite the interesting person. Did you guys like that? She started sort of that far back in and talked some about her upbringing, and where she got the inspiration for wanting to, to be a strong woman. I love that part of the story. I did some research, am I totally off base here is there musical about her grandmother, or like an off Broadway thing. Oh, maybe. Oh, I don't know. I think so. I looked it up online, and I was like, no. But I mean, there's some sort of off Broadway show that they did based on her life, a have to find it. We'll, she's she. Clearly quite a woman. I always like the biographies like learning about each candidate's upbringing, and their families. I enjoy that part, sometimes more than the meteor policy nitty gritty, you know, bootstraps part. I thought it was really interesting. Her her grandmother, obviously dot the by rule. And she sorta give a nod to the fact, and I think that this frame, a lot of her policy decisions as well that she really enjoys the rules and she struggled with that. So as much as she's inspired by the life of her grandmother, another strong women figures that were around her. I think she really struggled to line, that with this need to like, lease people and, and work within the system, and I see that play out in her politics, a lot, especially recently, where she's got more criticism for being part of the system, rather than a disruptor, and I it's interesting to see how that shakes her growing up. We'll, she says she's her. She was a big rule follower, an ass. Kisser. In the book, I thought was interesting and that, you know, her mother was definitely spunk here in a little bit looser. Yeah, I related to a lot. A pretty big rule follower. I I'm I always make jokes about how like a hate this anti-establishment stuff because he knew who likes establishment me. I like to follow roles and that's always been sort of attention at the heart of my politics is that I'm a liberal and progressive activist, and yet, I don't like to break rules myself, so I could really like especially I think it's common with women. I think a lot of women have sort of been socialized to be afraid to break rules and, and sort of to subconsciously kind of try really hard to stay within the lines. And so that was something I really by. But so one thing we didn't get a ton of from this book is policy, and it makes sense. You know, she wrote this in twenty fourteen she was not yet running for president may or may not have been on her radar is the future, but it was pretty far in the future at that point sewage..

"Everyone. This is Kelly with to prods talking politics. We are here for the fifth episode of our book club series. I'm here with my co host Sophie. Hey sophie. Hey kelly. Joining us is freelance writer, has wider high Cavs. And writer and actress Elizabeth Thorpe pilots bit. Hey, ladies. So today, we are going to be discussing Kirsten gillibrand book. It's called off the sidelines. Raise your voice changed the world. I will note that this is the oldest of the books that we have read so far. It was written in twenty fourteen. So it's a few years older than a couple of the other books that we have read thus far so let's just jump in. What did you guys think of the book this is Elizabeth? I had a hard time getting that. I didn't have an audio. I had a book an it was way to leave in Lima any for me. It was like an I feel like this formula and this narrative is a little stale. It's like almost condescending way to women. But again, I know it's a little bit older but I just I had a hard time getting through it. And there was also like an off, shucks element to it. You know. I was totally shocked when my name was floated become a replacement Senator for Hillary when she was going to be the secretary of state. You know, I, I find that really hard to believe. Knowing how these things work, but it was a hard slog for me personally to get through it. See, I really enjoyed it now I had the audio book, and maybe that makes the difference. This was the first of the books that we've done that. I listened to the audio book, and I happen to love Kirsten gillibrand voice. I don't know what it is there. Something New York about it that I really love and I had just met her. When we started reading it. So that may also have contributed. I did listen to it at one and a half speed because that's what I do all listening to things that, and so maybe that also helped make it feel less like a slog, but there were certain things that really resonated for me. I was on the elliptical. When I was listening to her chapter about trying to lose weight, and the struggle of doing nut in the public eye, and I was like I totally relate to this. I think it's fine. You talked about liking her voice, 'cause I also really liked her voice, I didn't get the audio book, but I listen to I wasn't Interco listeners for our interview with kissing gillibrand, but I listened to our interview with your Jilib round about five times street, because I like her voice so much. So I think I would have rather had the audio book because I would have liked to hear her read it. I really don't know what it is about her voice. But I just love it. You're all making me wish I had the audio book. I know I, I really like that. I like her outta tude like I do. And it comes through a lot in her tone. And I'm very I'm on her side in terms of work, she's coming from in sort of can-do, attitude and women are strong and can own the world. And I. Yeah, I love that attitude. I love that motivation. But I found myself, not totally buying. She's very earnest and maybe a little naive. I think if the issue because she comes from a very privileged background. I think there are some things that just don't register on her radar. And she has his perspective that she can just bulldoze her way through stuff and that, you know what she's done. She's done by being super ambitious and hard working. And yes, that is true. But it is also true. True. And she gives some nod to the in the book, but it is also true that you had a hell of a leg up. As a white woman with a hell of a lot of connection. And I and I see uses us connections and she plots her points in the book and name drops quite a lot and I'm like, well, you can't help it both ways. Joe either huge this pull yourself up by your bootstraps..

"Most of the time presidents who fend off a primary challenge. Do wind up. Like, your annual is a perfect example. I it's hard to know that exactly the reason. But if you're a member he was more moderate compared to some of the party he was challenged by someone to the right of him. And so it makes it so I think people that show up at the primaries there less motivated because they see that there's someone that's more right than him that didn't get through. And they don't get out to vote as much. Here's what I will say because I've been at many of these GOP conventions. I never seen a loyalty. Like, I have with Trump, and they are willing to put things aside because he speaks this anger that they have felt for years and years against the media against Democrats is not where I am. But I'm telling you the mood that I feel when I'm on the ground. I was not surprised that he ended up winning because he finally represented them someone who could speak to that two years ago. But that was two hundred. Aren't fully behind the president. Right. That's going to be very different. I hope it's going to be very different. After seeing the Miller report after seeing the despicable behavior that we now know is coming out of the White House. I think that Americans want a chain on something. That is one part of the conversation. But these aren't the delegates that show up to the convention. They have has now given into the fact that Russia can can interfere in our elections. You know what I don't wanna see one of them wearing a flag on selves. And they will you know that little flick pin. I don't wanna see that you do not with at anymore long as you think Russia is more important than the United States who do not wear that flag. That's the one above forty. I wanted to be in the car or on your chest. Well. This is a conversation. That's going to be ongoing because lots of things are coming down the pike, and we'll have to pay attention. I know that we have to go. So I can't say Jack. So I'm just going to say we'll be right back. Later, the beautiful people who people magazine picked for the cover of their beautiful people of the year issue.

Do you know who is told his staff to skip the White House correspondents dinner this weekend, which will not feature comedian MC? She doesn't need a calm. Does anybody need to everybody? Just stay home and have good night. Do they need to do the correspondents? Didn't they should of course, give the scholarships out? And would shouldn't it be about that? Or should it be about the car spun, and this I mean, how can you do correspondence? If you don't have a person in charge who has a sense of humor. That's the problem. But I mean, it's supposed to be it's supposed to celebrate a free press. And you know, I yeah, I really enjoyed going. And, but it's unfortunate because not only do we have a president that doesn't seem to have a sense of humor. He doesn't seem to enjoy the fact that the constitution provides for a free press. And I think that's why he's telling the folks within the White House that they can't go I've always loved this dinner on and we've all been, but it's like the one time of year, you can be under the same roof with people from the White House, and the press corps when the rest of the time of the year, you know, their it's checks and balances they're constantly going at it. But it's the one time you can let your hair down. You can have some drinks. You can make fun of each other. Reagan was one of my favorites..

Socialist the guy who is going to say all the unstable things get rid of private healthcare insurance. Nationalized swabs of industry regulate and tax up the wazoo. And that's a problem for a lot of the Democrats in the primaries for going to have to decide whether to attack more to the center and draw contrast with Sanders or whether they had to follow him down the primrose path because stuff that maybe popular in the primaries is not going to be popular in the general election. Now, there's certain candidates who are who may be able to read this needle. There are a lot of candidates will not be able to one of the early candidates is going to be out. I think pretty soon is Kirsten gillibrand the Senator from New York delusional, Senator from New York Kirsten gillibrand, stay music. Do you? Nobody knows why Senator gillibrand is running. Nobody knows what's your thinks about any issue. In fact, voters are not all that interested in Kirsten gillibrand at all in a hilarious turn of events. She was speaking in Iowa and a woman decided to simply walk right by her. And then just she's like I want my ranch dressing, man. Chris. And Jill people can't see that is why should subscribe at daily wires. You could actually see this stuff but Kirsten gillibrand is standing at a bar trying to speak to a throng of supporters. And this woman is just trying to get through and Kirsten gillibrand said what are you doing? He said, well, I just wanna ranch dressing. I'm not interested in anything. You have to say all I want is ranch. I feel like this is the American public with the election at this point. What we want ranch dressing. That's all just leave us alone. He's got a ranch dressing, please. Maybe the reason that this lady wanted ranch dressing is because she didn't want to listen to Kirsten gillibrand pander with regard to immigration Kirsten gillibrand as her theme song would suggest used to be an immigration border hawk. Now, she says that maybe we should dismantle existing border fences. And she says that indigenous people should be allowed to return to their native land, which I assume means getting rid of the border altogether. Here she is trying to pander to her heart's content in Iowa. Going on at the border. Are indigenous to this and that? And that border. That's why the wall is absurd because indigenous people are native to the United States who should have a wall. So people should be able to cross the border illegally because eight generations ago, their parents, great, great great. Great. Great. Great great, grandparents lived in Arizona. Yeah.

That's more than double the usual number the TSA won't provide a breakdown. But clearly the problem is worse at some airports than others.
