Ruben Navarrette: Why the Migrant Caravan Could be Bad for Trump
"Joining us now from Miami Ruben Navarette syndicated columnist host of the daily podcast Navarette nation. I may apply for Silom to the Navarette nation. Ruben he wrote a column called warning. Trump caravan focus could backfire in cost Republicans in the midterms. So how could the president's strong stance against allowing a mass migration in to apply for asylum work against him? Thanks for having me the way it works against him or quit work against this is a really chaotic mess all typically don't want to invite chaotic messes to their doorstep because they can go wrong six ways from Sunday. And so when the president was sort of welcoming the idea that the caravan was coming as an election issue, saying the election should be about caravanning Cavanaugh. I I got a little nervous because I thought man this could really go bad and at the same time. I was watching images of the Mexican military trying to keep out the central Americans at the at the Mexican border Guatemala and the caravan and just busted through a guy got shot by rubber bullet killed on the site seer gassing of of women holding babies, and I thought that the president really wants to repeat this on the US Mexico border east. Crazy, he'd better be careful what he's asking for. Okay. And we have discussed the fact that what the far left is hoping for is that the US military will abuse the migrants in some way, particularly women and children. But the Mexican thing on the on the Guatemala border was a ruse Ruben all they had to do is put a barrier across the bridge, which is a narrow bridge between water Malla, and Mexico, and then nobody could have gotten through it just a barrier. Couple of trucks, armored vehicles, whatever it may be and people jumped in the water try to get across by wrath, then they get taken into custody because it's a felony a felony Ruben to enter Mexican territory legally, you remember the soldier who took a wrong turn and had an antique gun in his car that was incarcerated for months in Mexico until I let a boycott against the country, Greta van Susteren also is involved and the Mexican in folding everybody should remember that. So the Mexican government not being able to control his ruse they could control, and I agree with you that if there is some kind of terrible pick. Pictures that come out of a confrontation that it'll hurt President Trump and Republicans that's not gonna happen until December going to happen before election day, we're eight days out, and yes, they're individuals now. But I don't see any kind of truce. So let me ask you one very important question. And I really am sincerely interested your opinion. If you were president, I know you're president of the Navarette nation, but if you're president of the United States, how do you deal with the migrants? Okay. You don't cut off aid. That's going right now to thank corruption and belief up law enforcement in these countries. So that the gangs cheer you because you cut off the you don't do that. That's dumb. You don't send the military down there. Because you're ready have let's see or to patrol national guard and local cops down there. You're having jurisdictional nightmare. Something back happen. That's not going to work. What you do? Is you make it clear that when people come to the US Mexico border, and they're. Ended there some are going to be sent home on airplanes and ship back and some are gonna get hearings to decide if they can stay as refugees because they're they're coming in not as economic migrants, but as refugees, and maybe they have family here. Maybe their kids are still here because they used to live here, and they were deported back or whatever. So you're gonna have to sort this out. Not everybody gets to stay not everybody has to go back. One thing. They should avoid is what vomited this idea that Obama stuck a bunch of unaccompanied minors and others in these camps detention facilities for weeks became months, the became years. That's bad news. Don't do that. Avoid that mistake. Some stay some go. Do you know what the backlog is for silent to be heard right now? I saw something like three million cases. But you tell me what what number you seen three years. All right. So if you allow anybody in from the mass migrant caravan, which number one of rejected asylum in Mexico number two could have. Sought it in their own home country. Then you're basically saying we'll see you in three three and a half years if you show up, right? You really think that's good for America? I think it's good for America is a couple of things economic migrants who come here to jobs Americans won't do as I said, we just up calling it in Beijing. They're not coming to harm. They're coming to door lawns door, laundry and do our cooking. If said they want to get jobs in the US. That's good for America. It's also good for America that we adhere as much as we can to the nation at the base of the statue of liberty. If you have people fleeing I'm talking from AMI Bill for Miami. It's a little difficult for me to get my head around the idea of the Cuban Americans who fled communist, Cuba, would somehow feel differently about people fleeing from Central America that doesn't work from. Well, how many would you take a year we take more than a million foreign nationals a year? Now, how many would Ruben Navarette take? I've said before a million people in the country of three hundred and fifteen million people non lot less than one percent of our total US population. So I'm not freaked out by the million number. How many how many would you take? I think everytime asked this question. I can't put my finger on whether it'd be three million with the one percent or whatever the number is. I don't think million has been sufficient, and I'm really get nervous when I see people wanting to go down to two two hundred and fifty thousand. So if the government changed the law, which it should and said, we're going to let two million migrants come in here legally, you got to apply, and you gotta get your green card, and you gotta do what you have to do would that satisfy you. I think it'd be good for the country to let people who come in gonna take that as a yes that would satisfy you view doubled the green card and visas for foreign nationals, and I I wouldn't oppose that as long as it's done in an orderly and methodical legal way. I wouldn't oppose it the best thing about the country legal immigrants people come legally weights. But here, here's what's not the best thing for the country. Millions of people here illegally right now, some of whom are killers, and rapists, that's not good for the country. So if you're going to say, all right you migrate there. Six thousand of you or whatever you come on in. And this would be impossible, by the way, we're going to adjudicate every single one of you in the asylum category. Okay to possible, but you come on in what do you think three weeks from? Now, you're going to have you going to have another. Ten thousand or one hundred thousand. Yeah. Okay. You know that once word is out that you can get in here. Millions of people are gonna come for asylum. Ruben everette. Okay. With that. I think this are people who are interviewed on this trail who are coming on this caravan who say that have kids up here, they're reuniting their family. They don't need a welfare magnet. They're coming because the family legally, if you have people in the country, you are placed at the head of the line, you know, that on the legal immigration front, but it's not your right as a Honduran citizen to say, hey, I got a cousin that lives near Ruben Navarette, and I'm going to go in and I don't really care what the law is look Ruben the bottom line on. This is I believe the immigration laws have to be changed the asylum laws to be changed the babies that are born here. And automatically our citizens have to be changed the border structure. Has to be changed. I believe that we should have common sense immigration, but I don't want anarchy. And I disagree with you in the five thousand troops at the border will stop this current migration care. You bet you the most expensive dinner in Miami that they will stop it. Because there's no way they're going to get through to the ports a call. Okay. Another wave of take that dinner bet. They'll be they'll be more coming right? Ruben keep keep up the dialogue. And we always appreciate talking to you. Thank you very much.

News Channel, going on the air told Greta just a few moments ago I was lucky I got there when I was a teenager. So the twenty four years doesn't really affect me that much. But we'll talk about that in this day in history at the end of the program. All right. Let's analyze big debate tonight. Let me give you some by on both candidates. I. Some of you may not know and then I'll. Tell you what is likely to happen. Now, you all know that I do not approve of Senator Kamla Harris, I do not approve of her and you don't know we have a lot of new viewers, millions of people watching us now every day all over the world if you don't know is because she denied bread cabinet due process I didn't mind that she oppose the judge's nomination to the Supreme Court. But what she did to him and his family was unconscionable. On American, we live in a country where you are innocent of all allegations until proven guilty she threw all that out the window and she's a former district attorney and attorney general's so she knows better. So just for that reason alone. Haven't a use for her and then she has grown increasingly radical. In fact, she comma Harris is the most liberal senator in that body. According to people who analyze it, and I'll give you all the facts in a moment. But let's start with The Vice President Mike Pence is sixty one years old from Indiana. As family grown up on gas stations all right raised Irish Catholic been married for thirty five years. Mr Pence has has three children son Michael a training to be a pilot in the Marine Corps. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, one Mike Pence graduated from Hanover College degree in history then in one, thousand, nine, hundred, six graduated from Indiana. University with a law degree. eighty-eight lost a congressional race in Indiana Ninety lost again. Okay finally in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, one as a Republican congressman from Indiana state there in the house seven years. became a governor in two thousand thirteen. Okay In between there, he did talk show. Radio talk show with the incredibly creative name of the Mike Pence show so. He's had an interesting career. He is a confidante. Of Donald Trump and I'll explain that a little while. So commonly harasses going to be fifty six years old on October twentieth born in Oakland California father is a Jamaican immigrant mother is from India also an immigrant. Family was upscale. Both mother and father educated she graduated from Howard University with a degree in political science did Kamala Harris and then she got a law degree from Hastings College I don't know much about Hastings College. In two, thousand four, she was the district attorney of San Francisco. She went on the attorney general two thousand eleven to seventeen back. Then considered a pretty hard liner against crime that's changed dramatically but back then. She was pro-police and didn't like the thugs very much. She ran for Congress for the Senate Two Thousand Fifteen one in sixteen and became increasingly left. All right. As you know she ran for president she did very poorly. Her campaign went bankrupt. She topped out at four percent of the vote. She didn't get any traction at all and then Joe Biden appointed her to be his running mate because she was a black woman. Okay and they both admit that that stated. Okay. So Senator Harris this year according to of track dot US gove track dot us which evaluates all senators on their voting records and legislation proposals okay. The study was dated August Fourteenth Two, thousand and twenty if you WanNa look it up. So she is the most liberal senator. In the Senate. Even, more left than Bernie Sanders. Incredible Not denied this study. She doesn't basically say anything about it. She believes that the United States. Is a racist country. Now, that's pence's big opening.

This Day in history. Twenty four years ago. October seventh nineteen ninety-six the Fox News Channel I broadcasted I. was there let's say to picture. See that. Now, I was only eighteen years old and I got in early younger. Guy. The you'll. Riley report. And that was on it's six o'clock at seven o'clock. Mike Schneider had report at eight o'clock. Catherine. Crier. Had A report nine Hannity and Colmes the late Alan Colmes art that was the lineup. and Ted Turner said they were going to squash is like a bug at CNN And we only had twelve million homes and they try to keep us off in New York City to turn out a lot of clout in New York City tried to block Fox's channel who saved Fox News Channel Rudy Giuliani the mayor at the time. And then. FNC rose to be I think the most profitable. News Channel in History of broadcasting. Different place now than it was back then. But. It was really interesting for me. I was there more than twenty years you know to see that thing. Colleges up and up and up and up and up and I was happy I was on at six because I can hold on what became the O'Reilly factor. All right. Six weren't that many people watch it and I think I read where seven people. My parents and a few others. It wasn't widely watched, but then we're got out to traditional Americans you know different different place than CNN NBC News Msnbc went on the air four months before us. Okay, and of course, after. Was it. I was number one for sixteen consecutive years. So eight years took me to get to be number one and then we were never ever beaten ever one day. Always. Number One, which is I don't think we're record that will ever be broken I'm bragging a little I'm sorry but I remember Larry King was number one before me on CNN and I told my staff crush Larry leg grape. which we did, it was a personal against Larry. He's all right but he wasn't doing what I fought you should do. And so that was twenty four years ago. Today has on Hannity's radio. Program today and I reminded him. Of of that twenty, four years ago because Hannity and the late. Alan Colmes were there with me and we're standing in some promo shoot in a building. I. Just remember like it was yesterday and we're all looking at each other going this going to work. This GonNa work we all have one year deals like a better work. We're going to be out of work. So anyway thought you'd like to know about that are right back with a final thought. Support for this podcast comes from dropbox business. Think about the people you work with your all supremely different, which is why dropbox designed a new workspace where whatever works best for you works best for your team where every file and APP connect tasks not only assign work but also help organize it were you can create new decks spreadsheets and even launch video calls without ever needing to leave your workspace that's dropbox business a space for teamwork. You are way visit dropbox dot com slash teams at work for a thirty day free trial. So everybody's asking me. He was GONNA win. It was GonNa win who's going to win and I know as I told you but I can tell you right now Joe Biden is elite. All right. It's not as big as the poll set because Biden's support is thin sound like Barack Obama. Passionate about Barack Obama the man no passion attached to Joe Biden. Nobody's going on I. GotTa. have that Joe Biden president nobody's doing that. It's all about Donald Trump. Yes or no all right. Now People Hated Hillary Clinton hated her they don't hate by even if you don't like his policies and all that. He doesn't get the emotions fall like Hillary Clinton did. So this is a this is a vote on Donald Trump. Mr Trump next Thursday has to win that debate decisively. He has to be a different president as far as his experience with Cova he has to tell you. How it has affected him. In a very personal way. That's what he has to do. We'll have the best coverage next week. I'm be tweeting during a VP debate tonight at bill. O'Reilly. Okay and we will see you tomorrow.

Follow a group of young fans on high stakes adventure to save humanity covering the clues in their favorite comic book Utopia. What have you done today to earn your place in this world? Watch the Amazon original series utopia now on prime video to find out. Andro up your senior correspondent covering politics here, Vox The New York Times published a trove of information on President. Trump's taxes is this are these the tax returns the country's been waiting for years for. Basically yes. The Times did not publish the documents themselves that they obtained because they didn't want to jeopardize their sources, but they basically got to look at tax return data extending over more than two decades related to president trump including his complete returns as prepared by his accountant's through the year twenty seventeen, and there's been a lot of focus of course on the president's tax is through. Court proceedings through congressional hearings. What exactly has the country been waiting to learn this whole time? So it was very unusual that trump refused to release his tax returns while running for President in two thousand sixteen, it went against decades of recent precedent and he continued his unconvincing excuses about why he wasn't doing this ever since he's been elected and as far as the tax returns as soon as the audience complete like any lawyer would tell you. Greta van Susteren she was going over to while ago. She's a lawyer. She said, well, no lawyer would let somebody release attacks return when they're under eighteen or is in fact, no law preventing him from releasing his tax returns if he's under audit so. Many people suspected that he had something to hide here and there were all sorts of theories going around Was it that perhaps he paid no income taxes at all in some years maybe he doesn't want the American people. All of you watching tonight to know that he's paid nothing in federal taxes because of that. He might not be a successful businessman as he claimed to be and it's natural to wonder what is it that he's hiding his taxes maybe it's that donald trump doesn't earn nearly as much as he has. So loudly told everyone maybe he he's not as rich as he says, he is who knows maybe or was he perhaps claiming some deductions and write offs that were a bit legally aggressive and perhaps dubious that might not stand up to close scrutiny. Okay. So what does the New York Times reporting reveal on those three big buckets? The Times story reveals that all of those. Are True that in several years from twenty seven to twenty, fourteen trump paid zero federal income taxes and in twenty sixteen to twenty seventeen, he paid the paltry sum of seven hundred, fifty dollars each year as in you and I probably pay more taxes the president trump yes I certainly did I don't know about you shot I did too. I did good good They also reveal that the reason trump paid. So little in taxes is because he claimed his businesses were losing massive amounts of money and use those losses as an excuse on these tax forms to avoid paying income taxes. So that. If we take it at face value makes him look like a rather unsuccessful businessman and then there's the issue of the dubious. Deductions and the time sniffed out a few deductions that he claimed or write offs that he claims that don't seem to really pass the smell test. What are we talking about? The most prominent example is that trump claimed on several projects that he had consultant expenses and he tried to write off consultant expenses as a business expense millions and millions of dollars worth. But it turns out that according to The Times is reporting. There were no outside consultants working on these projects for the. Company and they figured out that some of these payments the amounts match payments given to trump's daughter Ivanka. So it looks like at least in some cases, trump was claiming that he was spending on consultants as a business expense but those consultants were actually his children who also worked for his company and that raises some eyebrows. When you say it raises eyebrows I mean a thing I wondered last night reading over this stuff is, is this illegal or is this just some shady? Accounting well, that's the question hanging over all this because it's obviously possible to have really clever accountants. It's also possible to have really aggressive and perhaps unethical accountants and question of what was happening here. It's tough to conclusively say without having more underlying information about what was going on but the Times also flags payments for Don Juniors legal fees related to the Russia investigation as questionable because they say you're you're not supposed to. Deduct legal expenses that come from a political campaign. And then there's also of the New York Attorney General is investigating certain charitable deductions. Trump claims the petition also names four trump organization properties under investigation seven springs two, hundred, Twelve Acre New York family estate in Westchester Forty. Wall Street. A mixed use building in Lower Manhattan. The trump international hotel in Chicago. Tower, as well as trump national golf club in Los Angeles for basically agreeing not to develop on certain of his properties. He claimed that this was effectively a a charitable donation from him that that was very valuable and should. Be deducted from his taxes. So that was already under scrutiny from the New York. Attorney General So I guess it remains to be seen whether any of this is explicitly illegal or not is that fair? Yeah I mean that's a question for investigators and prosecutors to determine but. It certainly doesn't seem absolutely obviously. Entirely, legal. What more do we learn about the president's debts? There's a lot of attention. Paid to the mentioned in the article that trump has a great deal of debt over four hundred million dollars worth that will be coming do in his second term four hundred million dollars. Yeah. Now, that is actually not a new revelation that has been known since trump filed his financial disclosure forms back during the two thousand sixteen campaign. So there's a lot of questioning about. Who exactly that debt was too especially because the Times pointed out that the tax returns do not actually mention who holds that debt but according to trump's financial disclosure forms we actually do know the largest debt holder for trump is Deutsche. Bank. It's about three hundred million dollars in debt, and these are all active successful projects. These are golf courses in Florida. This is partially for his hotel in Washington DC, which we know just opened you know rather than secret Russian money being confirmed by Sir or something like that. It seems that this debt that's being disclosed on the tax returns at least so far as we know, appears to be a to financial institutions and about mortgages. and. Is it all these debts that prevent the president from paying taxes like people like you and me like most Americans? So the story as outlined in the Times article what seems to have happened is that Trump used various parts of the tax code to avoid paying much income taxes for many years and then in. The. Mid to thousands that's why the apprentice premiered. And the apprenticed sent tons of money pouring in to trump's coffers and he actually ended up paying. A lot of. From two, thousand, five through two, thousand, seven. According to The Times a total of seventy million dollars in federal income taxes. The first time he paid substantial income taxes in his life. And he appears to have not liked this very much. So he changed his financial strategy and business strategy. What he was going to do from this point forward was to spend a lot of money and plough it Muffin into what on paper looks like money losing businesses, and then he would claim those losses as business losses and use them to avoid paying income taxes in featured guest. So if you lose this much money than you don't owe taxes on the parts of your business that are actually profitable. And that's how the president who may or may not be a billionaire gets away with paying seven hundred fifty dollars in income taxes. Yes. So the question hanging over this is whether the massive losses that trump has declared are actually beal because there's one picture in which trump is actually a pretty incompetent businessman. He's losing a ton of money by just. Plowing it into mainly golf courses that are losing a ton of money and that that's why he's paying no taxes on the part of his business that is profitable because he's losing so much money. The unprofitable parts of his business. The other explanation would be that this is a bit of trickery on trump's part that he wants to avoid paying taxes. So he has made his golf courses particularly seem very unprofitable on paper. Whether this accounting is legal or not we don't really know it's impossible to say but that that he is kind of seeming to be more unsuccessful than he is just because he doesn't want to pay taxes.

Why won't he release his tax returns and I think there may maybe a couple of reasons I. maybe he's not as rich as he says, he is Andrew Four years ago Hillary Clinton was talking about trump's tax returns in the presidential debates maybe he doesn't want the American people all of you watching tonight to know that he's paid nothing in federal taxes because I remember the president proudly saying his not paying federal income taxes income made him smart that makes Reading this reporting from the New York Times, all the loop holes and smokescreens certainly seemed like the work of someone very smart or incredibly stupid. Well, the question is, how far do you go in claiming aggressive? Tax Deductions and write offs without going too far, and it does seem that trump is in serious danger of having gone too far. The story reveals that he really is under audit from the IRS. He has been for several years and that the audit looks really serious. If there is an unfavorable finding to trump. It could cost him about one hundred, million dollars in back taxes. So you know. That is more taxes that you and I probably Pedro. Yes. That would be more taxes than I paid last year I will admit that. Bit More about this audit sounds epic. So. Back, in twenty ten, just after the financial crisis, trump claimed an income tax refund that was worth seventy two point nine, million dollars that was all of the federal income taxes he paid from two, thousand, five through two thousand eight according to The New York Times he asked for it back. And this is back when he was making money off the apprentice, you work hard. You can really hit it big. Yes. I use my brain I use my negotiating skills and I worked at all now my companies bigger than it ever was at stronger than it ever was and I'm having more fun than I ever had. So he claimed essentially that he lost so much money. During, the recession. One point four billion dollars from me failure is never an option that he deserved a refund of the taxes he actually paid in previous years. There is no such thing as failure is that federal tax code works. If you lose a bunch of money at one point, you can claim that you gave a bunch of money before and then get it back. So, this was a specific change that was passed under president, Obama that trump was trying to take advantage to. And so he basically, he wanted all this tax money back that he paid since two thousand five, and then initially he actually got it according to Michael Cohen his longtime lawyer and fixer according to Cohen's testimony to Congress last year trump showed him off a huge check from the US Treasury he showed me what he claims a ten million dollar irs tax refund. And he said that he could not believe how stupid the government was forgiving someone like him that much money back. But the thing is that was just a preliminary fund and the question of whether trump actually deserve all that money back is the topic of the audit that has been unfolding ever since has the president said anything about all this now that the New York Times reporting seems to corroborate something that Michael Cohen said under testimony. He basically said, it's all fake news totally fake news. We shouldn't believe in. It's wrong. May the say he complained about the audit often every year they audit me audit me he's complained that. You have people in the areas do. They treat treatment very, very badly. So yeah, he's he's talked about both the audit and The Times report specifically but not in a particularly candidate way. What about his tax attorneys are they on the line here of they comment on what the Times reported. So The Times ran a lot of their findings by Alan Garton, who's a lawyer for the trump organization and He. Claim. That most if not all of the facts appear to be inaccurate but he didn't seem to really have much specifics he claimed trump has actually over the past decade paid tens of millions of dollars in personal taxes to the federal government however are as the Times report points out. Personal taxes, not federal income taxes that could also include social security Medicare payroll taxes for employees of which he has quite a few. Yes I wonder though how exceptional is this? Is this just how the system works for the wealthy the well connected the powerful people like Donald Trump who who live in gold rooms at the top of skyscrapers. There are two schools of thought on this. One is that the super rich? Have all sorts of ways to take advantage of the tax code and try to minimize their tax liability absolutely used it, and so did Warren Buffett and so did George Soros and so did many of the other people you know this is just rather than something unique trump does that this is something of a broader scandal that is. Unfortunately, quite common the other school of thought is that trump goes further than others. For instance, there is this question of the audit back is clearly a sign that the IRS is at least concerned that there is something not entirely on the level here to be a super rich person if you end up paying ten percent of your income in taxes, that is pretty common. Zero is. Is More unusual is Not necessarily illegal. They're potentially legal paths to get there but. But it's not the norm the times reporters right that in many years Mr trump lost more money than nearly any other individual American tax payer we're talking declared losses in the year nineteen ninety-five of. Nearly a billion dollars. From A billion dollars of debt. A fight with the IRS over one hundred million dollars. An agency under his own supervision it just reading this article I felt like. The entire trump presidency is just a conflict of interest. Yeah and one of the most ominous things in the report. From the, times is to return to a topic from before. The fact that trump has all of these debts coming do scheduled to come due in his second term that is highly unusual situation for a president of the United States who could be on the hook for four hundred, million dollars during his second term who could be on the hook for another million dollars. If the audit doesn't go the way, he likes like trump has a lot of money at stake and in the midst of a pandemic, that's killed some two hundred thousand Americans and economic crisis and the reckoning on on race and everything else going on in this country right now. Is it possible that this information these revelations from the new? York. Times will make a difference in this election. Well. It certainly would it help trump? He's running out of time at this point he's trailing in the polls. He needs to turn things around. This is obviously not what he wants to be talking about I think there's a question of how many people who currently support trump might change their minds over this but average people pay taxes. They know how much taxes they pay and many of them will probably think that it is quite strange that they are paying more taxes than they're suppose supposed-. Billionaire president.

Video game 'Donut County' gets at the heart of L.A.'s gentrification wars
"From the Mon broadcast center at KP. See see this is the frame, I'm John horn today's show. What is Megan Kelly's future at NBC? After her comments about black face and poor ratings. Does she even have one then the designer of video game about gentrification in Los Angeles. Where players try to swallow up buildings admits that he's well part of the problem. I know I'm complicit in the gentrification of Los Angeles like anywhere. I go because I'm this tech worker. I'm changing the place that I live, and we continue my conversation with two prominent music critics about the LA philharmonic centennial all that coming up on the frame. Welcome to the frame. I'm John horn. It's been a week filled with controversy at NBC news. It all started on Tuesday with a segment on Megan Kelly today about Halloween costumes, get in trouble. If you are a white person who puts on the Al we or a black person who puts on Whiteface Halloween like. I was a kid. That was okay. As long as you addressing character. Kelly's remarks drew widespread condemnation and yesterday, she apologized on air. But today there was no new episode of her show and a repeat was run. Instead, the former Fox News star came to NBC with a three year sixty nine million dollar megadeal, but ratings were never very good. And now, it seems that all maybe coming to an end Brian Steinberg has been following the story for variety when we spoke. I asked him about the big bet that NBC made on Megan Kelly a little over a year ago. I think at a time they saw a viewership that had been energized with Republicans in the White House and congress and felt that in in decades about Fox News attitude into its program can be valuable thing. They have the same time. He also made Greta van Susteren anchor over at MSNBC. So there was clearly some attraction with this type of partisan line of programming. One of the things that I. Think is interesting is that from the very beginning. Megan Kelly had a tough time. And there was a confrontational interview with Jane Fonda how had she done up to this week. How had the ratings been and how was she perceived both within NBC and by viewers, generally. Well, generally, speaking, the show is not pulling into viewership that it did when Tama hall and Roker were doing the nine o'clock hour up today. It's about four hundred thousand years that is cause for concern, especially when you're up against us syndicated programming ABC with Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest. I think within the Network My understanding is that both sides of goings aspirated, the quote, the word that I got from someone with each other. I think the show is tried at home scramble along and try new formats test, new ideas. Clearly, Megan Kelly wanted to break news and explore hot hot button issues and the today show while does that it also newsy broad based program that that, you know, aims where everybody, and I think sometimes, you know, she got. To close the bone examining metoo, you issue NBC and things like that. Perhaps did not make the that. They're overjoyed, I guess you could make the argument you can take the personality out of Fox News. But maybe you can't take the Fox News out of the personality did NBC. No what was getting into. Because Megan Kelly certainly has a history of making inflammatory comments not only about race. But also about gender about sexual assault about contraception about black lives matter. There's a whole history there did they know what they were doing when they hired her. So should this have been much of a surprise to the network? I was surprised that they put her into two shows very quickly. I was surprised that they didn't, you know, spend more time having her meet audiences by fouling, you know, long reports in for Lester Holt doing it over. Dateline appearing on the today show with we reporting, and I was surprised they didn't spend more time developing her storytelling muscle row. Other than her her partisan muscle. I think there are a lot of people who found her comments about black face completely indefensible. But among those people where people who worked at NBC, and we're very prominent on air, including people like all-rookie, how important was it that people on air at NBC said that making Kelly's apology didn't go far enough. That tells me that disatisfaction has room for some time that that that her fellow colleagues would go on nightly news and unto today show and spend a five minutes segment discussing this issue, and how wasn't sufficient that's just to me that that she had not integrated herself that well in the NBC news. And I think she's long, you know, taken a pride in having her own persona cultivating her own, you know, swath of popularity and people follow her for a certain reason, she she stood up Donald Trump. She spoke her mouth, Fox News on both sides of the issues. Take Republicans and Democrats, you know, she doesn't mince words. Didn't take any you know, what from interviewees that was kind of her her brand. And I don't buy the same time. I'm not sure it blended well with the rest of the people, and she news is a place of working reporters. Not of you know, on air, primetime personalities ABC. I would argue that Rachel Maddow on reporting on our own. So I I don't know that it gel right away. And it probably never got chance to do. So it feels very much like NBC is scrambling. And I think that's evidenced by what happened this morning where rather than get a substitute host. They re ran a Friday show from the past with Megan Kelly. In fact, she started this show saying like happy Friday on Thursday, is it your sense of the network is really trying to figure out as quickly as possible what it can do with the situation that kind of tank the show so badly that you can't come back because airing a repeat during morning news time is is death. There's no reason for on original content, and at that time of the day people want fresh content. There's news out there. There's coming out on the issues of the day. So I wonder if perhaps they're trying to just sink the show by airing repeats that have. The elephants right now. One of the other issues for NBC is at already has had to dismiss Matt Lauer over what he is alleged to have done in terms of sexual assaults and sexual misconduct. If you take Megan Kelly with that and not just the money, but kind of the public embarrassment where does this leave NBC after all of this is said and done. Well, it's a big a big bet to begin with morning TV is is not an easy places. Exceed look at Anderson Cooper or area or Katie Couric of all had daytime morning shows that lasts about two years or so before going off the air. It is not an easy place. As a big swing a lot of money spent on it. I'm not sure I think they had a big hit the big anchor. Then have a big idea if the big anchor, and you don't have both those elements. It could be a recipe for failure. Why was this? The breaking point. Why was she in the network apparently unable to whether this controversy? Well, you know, when you make get into that topic on broad-based broadcast Moines television. And you can't kind of control health. Are you go? I think it's just the lack of awareness of audience. You know, this this is a broad base morning program. Not Fox News. If people who are home watching and looking for, you know, help tips entry human interest. I think the topics abroad a veteran broadcaster would not go into Brian Steinberg is the senior TV editor at variety, Brian. Thanks so much for coming back on the show. Thanks a lot. John. Good talking to you. Coming up. It isn't easy telling a story about gentrification making a video game about the subject through even harder. KPCC podcast supporters include UCLA center for the artist performance presenting Josh fonts with his new work. That truth has changed from the director of Gaslan comes alive performance tracing. The ark of American politics from nine eleven to Trump from his experiences as an eyewitness to nine eleven the BP oil spill Bernie Sanders campaign and standing rock FOX delivers an insightful account of how we got to where we are today. October twenty seven at prude playhouse tickets, a cab dot UCLA dot EDU. Welcome back to the frame. I'm John horn. Thanks for joining us gentrification on the east side of Los Angeles has been a hot topic of conversation. For local residents artists writers and activists for some time now, especially in recent years with neighborhoods like Boyle heights and Highland Park. Experiencing an influx of high end coffee shops yoga studios and pricey apartment complexes the conversation. Suddenly made it onto an unlikely platform in the form of a video. Game called Donut county. It was recently released by Anna Purna interactive. Don't be fooled by it's obvious cuteness. Even though it's fun to play Donut county offers a deeper social commentary, then the visuals might lead you to believe when we spoke for the game's designer Ben as Zito, he explained how it all works. See play as a hole in the ground and you start small and you get bigger that's the basic concept of it. But beyond that, I was trying to ask or answer. The question of like, why is it a whole? And so the story kind of shaped around this version of LA called Donut county where you're playing as a new tech gesture fire who moved in their bunch of raccoons who have this app that lets them open up holes to steal people's trash a little bit convoluted. But the idea is that they're kind of displacing everyone and Dona county stealing their trash and then putting new raccoon fide Vert tech versions of everything down. So how did Los Angeles? And gentrification become part of the design and the look of don't accounting. It's started with just the whole, and it took a while to kind of it took a couple of interruptions to land on what I really wanted to talk about. But I think well, I love Los Angeles. And I moved here in like twenty eleven where were you from New York? Okay. So it was a big big change of pace. And I really really enjoyed it. And I loved the kind of like, I love the fact that I was familiar with everything in LA, but only through like what felt like a dream like just seeing movies and seeing media about it. And I wanted to kind of dig into what places and what themes were kind of central to L A, and so the themes of array share and the themes like renewal, and, you know, the kind of like portrayal of the place defining the place is something that I thought it'd be really cool to you know, mixed with this concept of ever-growing hole. Then like, a natural disaster and stuff. Like that. And I think it's interesting that you live in Highland Park. Not far from where we're sitting right now and Highland Park. In many ways is the epitome of gentrification in Los Angeles. It is an old neighborhood filled with a lot of old businesses but on every fifth corner. Now, there's a cappuccino plays. There is like, you know, high end resale it is a neighborhood that in real time is gentrifying day by day hour by hour. Right. Yeah. When when I go for a walk in the morning, I always see something new plans for something new. And I think the of took me awhile to arrive here. But the approach for Dona county was like, I am I I know I'm complicit and the gentrification of Los Angeles like anywhere, I go because I'm this tech worker. I'm changing the place that I live. And so I really wanted the perspective of it to be about like, hey, you're that enter fire in the case of playing Donut county. Here is some of the impacts in some of the consequences on the community. And also as someone who is not originally from Los Angeles or neighborhood in Los Angeles. I can only talk about my role in the changes that are happening here. And so I left New York where you know, Brooklyn had was like on the tail end of the, hyper densification fees, and so kind of coming here and seeing the same process happen. I was like oh, man. Okay. Maybe I'm probably wherever you go. Gentrification follows we talk on this show with filmmakers who come out of two very distinct camps the studio camp and the independent camp. And the studios are big behemoth movies that cost a quarter of a billion dollars that are tied to brands and franchises in the smaller, independent films are where the stories are really about the story that the filmmaker wants to tell is there an equivalent in game design and release. And where would you put yourself on that spectrum? I would say. I'm definitely more established in the indie world, but I'm really really indie in the sense that most of the production of the game was done by myself. And I got some friends to kind of help along the way like my partner Geneva. Hodgson, she's a brilliant writer, and she's a cartoonist. And so she helped me make the script, and edit the story and make the emotional the beats work, but this project I started on my own in two thousand twelve and it was pretty much just me up until the end we're talking with Ben Ezra Zito. The creator of the new game doughnut county in Hollywood, there's something called development hell, which is like the, you know, the fits and starts at a project has on its path to getting made. And I think it's fair to say that Donut county had its own development. Hell you spoke at something called the failure workshop in two thousand and fifteen at the game developers conference in San Francisco. I'm gonna play some audio from your remarks, and then we're gonna. Talk about what it was that you were talking about. Okay. So here's a disclaimer. I'm not going to talk about design not gonna talk about business. And I'm not an expert on this subject. And that's why I'm here in the failure workshop, and in fact, I'm kind of embarrassed by what I'm gonna talk about. But I think being like an ethical artist is a practice, and it's something you have to be consciously working on all the time. And so I hope I can inspire. Some folks who are doing the same things maybe running into the same problems to like examine their work the way I did. So let's talk about what you're talking about. This game was originally something else called Katina. Explain what that concept was. And what the criticism of it was so originally so the game started with a hole in the ground and the kind of natural semantic extension of that is like it's about a racing things from from the playing field. And so I had this idea that I was I was inspired by these Hopi Katina dolls. I always been fascinated by. Them books about them. So I was like, oh, let me talk about like the erasure of indigenous people in the United States, and let's focus on these interesting characters like the Katina dolls, and like what are their story? Let me do some research about it. And so I was developing the game, you know, with that theme. And it the problem with it was it was just a theme and at the more and more I dug into the actual nature of the Katina dolls the more. I learned that like, oh, no, this is a religion. And this is a subject that I'm not a cliff to talk about this is a story that is not my personal story and it did get criticism for that early on. Luckily, like, it was early enough in the process that I could kind of go through the emotional arc of like realizing that this was really the wrong type of story for me to be telling. And so I ended up totally, you know, retooling the entire thing. And that's when it. Switched to being more about my perspective on on change in the place. You're game publisher is in a permanent interactive. And in apprentice known as a film company producing and distributing some really good films by some really, good filmmakers. I don't think of them as a game designer and publisher how did you hook up with them, and what are their ambitions for digital content? They're really interesting. It's been super fun to work with an apprentice. Because I had known some of the folks who are on the interactive side from before they were working with Anna Perna. And so they kind of had this concept of like, let's take what you're doing for movies and do it for games. And what it does is? They just focus on creators. And they say like, whatever your vision is like we will help you achieve that. And it was kind of weird at first because I was like my game was the first funny game that they were doing the other games are really more serious and emotional, and I was like is this, okay? For me to be doing like does this brand. And. You know, Nathan from an interactive sat me down. He was like. Yeah, it's fine. Like, we're here to serve you like, let's do whatever you want to do in terms of like, do you want it? How do you want to tell your story and that kind of freedom was like scary? But it was also like really empowering. And so it's been a really awesome process working with them. Anna Perna is Megan Ellison's company and she inherited her fortune from her father Larry Ellison who runs oracle. Larry Ellison is a real life hole in your game. He veraciously swallows up real estate. He owned the entire island of lanai and Hawaii he owns his an historic village in Japan. Reportedly two dozen properties in Malibu, you're aware of that irony, aren't you? We're we're I'm far enough down on the chain. And I think those yeah. No those. I don't think that like it has to speak to the hierarchy from which like the money came from at the moment. But I think in the in the future of games as an art form. I think that the production of that. I think will be very important. I want to hear about this creative community space. You have in Culver city. It's called glitch city. Is that right? That's correct. What does it? So it's a independent game co working space effectively, but it's pretty small in terms of the scope of the people working there because you know, the community of indie game developers small, and we were all working on our own in our garages, or in in our bedrooms. And it was driving me nuts. And a lot of my friends at the time who are interested in it. We were like we realized like we if we all put some money together, we can have a place to go to actually do our work and having a real semi office environment. And so yeah, we pitched in and we built that in two thousand thirteen and it has since become not only like a co working space, but at hub for indie. Games. And people are interested in games in LA. Ben Esposito is the creator of Donut county. Ben, thanks so much for coming in. Thanks for having me on. Coming up part two of my conversation with music, critics Mark sweat and Alex Ross about the LA philharmonic centennial. Welcome back to the frame. I'm John horn. Now, the second part of my conversation with two prominent music critics about the LA philharmonic centennial season, Mark sweat who has been with the LA times since nineteen Ninety-six and Alex Ross the bicoastal music critic for the New Yorker has been following the L A fill for a very long time yesterday. We spoke about the philharmonic's three pivotal music directors Zubin Mehta as Pekka Salonen and Gustavo due to Mel, but the LA fill also had two very important general managers who largely shaped the image and direction of the Phil as we know it today they were Ernest Fleischmann from nineteen sixty nine to nineteen ninety eight and Deborah Borda from nineteen ninety nine to two thousand seventeen. Here's Mark sweat on Fleischmann's legacy. He was brilliant figure. He was a brilliant promoter. He was able to figure out how to really make Mehta a star and the orchestra prominent and do things that. No other orchestra had ever dared to do take huge political chances be involved in anti-vietnam or rallies, all kinds of things. And he had a great great vision that the orchestra would be more than an orchestra. It would be this kind of community of physicians that was involved in all kinds of ways within the community itself. He was really able to give the LA feel prominence, but it actually was a very very good and very important orchestra long before Dr Otto Klemperer conductor in general musical director of the Los Angeles philharmonic orchestra now addresses you in the thirties. It had one of the great conductors of the time. I'm klemperer. And when you hear old recordings from the thirties radio broadcasts in the forty minute. You can hear that this is an orchestra different. How has the LA feel negotiated its place in Hollywood and its relationship to the movie business, the TV business, and how has that evolved over the years that you both have been watching the orchestra back in the thirties and forties. The orchestra in one sense was completely removed from the growth of symphonic music in motion pictures, and the German emigre composers who came here to write and round of writing for the pictures. You're had no interest in them. They thought this was sort of Schlaug, but the young film composers were very interested in the orchestra because Yorkers who's playing schurenberg it was playing Stravinsky, and they were extremely influenced by that. And they would come to the fill to find out. What is going on in music that they could then incorporate in their work, Alex. Fleischmann was succeeded by Deborah Borda who came from the New York, Phil. And she's since returned to New York. What was her impact on the L A Phil what did she bring? And what was her legacy? Even though she's only been gone short period of time. Now. Well, she's just a brilliant manager of orchestras keeping everything in line, and and handling the budget, and and so forth. She also has a gift which I think she she shares with Ernest Fleischmann, even though you can think of two more different personalities, but I think both of them had this lack of caution and a kind of instinct to go with riskier ideas, and Deborah Boorda was very good about promoting female conductors Muruga Grishin DAT. La made really some of her first internationally prominent appearances with the LA ill Susanna milky as principal guest has done really remarkable things and is very likely to continue doing so this season with her upcoming projects. And I think he's really developed a following with the the audience and then female composers. Which is an assessing at this point. Because so many of the of the dominant names and the most inventive personalities in music today happen to be women. And you know, if you are orchestra that is playing very few or no women, and unfortunately, there have been a couple of cases of very major orchestras programming an entire season with no female composers whatsoever. It doesn't necessarily mean you are misogynist what it means is you're not playing very much new music in nineteen forty eight the L A Phil hired Henry Louis as double bass player. He's the first African American musician appointed to a major symphony at that time. And he was only sixteen years old since then I think we can agree that the LA fell has done a pretty good job of representing historically under represented voices. Either us composers sometimes it's conductors as musicians where do you see that legacy going forward under its new leader? How much can the LA fill and other. Orchestras improve. And how much work has already been accomplished by the L A fill in that realm. I mean, there's still way behind everybody is way behind, but I think it takes time, and there's no organization anywhere. Now that is developing young talent elsewhere with the youth orchestra programs that do to mill who's created. There are now four in parts of Los Angeles. Where you're you are now building a whole new group of very talented musicians. And you know within the next decade or two orchestras are gonna look at least this orchestra is going to look radically different. And I think the attitude from what I can gather and certainly from the new head of the orchestra. Simon woods is that you can't do this fast enough last question kind of a sports question. But not really the brawn James is no playing with the Lakers. He's a free agent. How many more years we'll do to Melby playing with the Phil? Do you think? Is a contract through two thousand twenty two. I'm not I seriously doubt that he even knows if he will stay beyond that or not Alex Ross is the music critic at the New Yorker, Mark sweat music critic at the LA times, Alex, Mark. Thanks. Thank you. Thank you. And that is it for today. Remember to sign up for the frames weekly newsletter to great way to keep up with the show. You could sign up at the frame dot org slash newsletter. I'm John horn. Thanks for listening. We'll see you tomorrow.
McConnell Says Local Budget Offices Are Hoarding Cash. They Say: Malarkey
"McConnell says, local budget offices are hoarding cash. They say Malarkey by Philip Elliott. It was one of those comments that stops Washington insiders cold in their tracks on Saturday Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell was telling an interviewer that his home state of Kentucky among the worst at responsible budgeting had only spent about six percent of the money congress had sent it to deal with the economic pressures of the coronavirus pandemic. McConnell was trying to make the point that Congress should wait until states spend what they have. In their pockets before shoveling more cash to help local budgets in the next aid package, it seemed an impossible claim. But sure enough the Senate's top Republican was right very little of the emergency dollars meant to help his or other states has been going out the door according to a July twenty. Third Treasury Department Document and Kentucky isn't alone in sitting on, it's piece of the one, hundred, fifty, billion dollar highly conditioned bail out. Just as jaw-dropping as McConnell's assertion was, it's fast dismissal from outside the beltway in all seven partisan associations representing governor's state fiscal officers, mayors, and local elected leaders started a systemic and clear-eyed rejection of McConnell's claim that states didn't need more money to stay afloat within a day of McConnell's interview which aired on Greta Van Susteren Sunday show on gray television. The joint lobbying effort got a second wind to bail out state and local governments. The advocates goal a cool one trillion dollars. Whether or not treasury should send another bail out to local governments is the latest faultline to emerge congress is trying to marshal a response to the coronavirus pandemic that has tanked. One of the US economy sent tens of millions of Americans onto unemployment rolls and shattered stability for all sectors of the country for weeks. Washington has been deadlocked over just how read the latest budget will glow in debt based spending unions and advocacy groups have been blanketing the airwaves with ads urging Congress to pony up for public health, workers, teachers and civil servants whose paychecks are all cut at the local level. Most states to run balanced budgets legally, they can't go into debt when times get tough local governments like county cities and townships have a little more leeway but not a ton they can borrow cash but banks aren't rushing to lend a lot of these places cash as they confront their own dodgy ledgers, which means Washington is the local commissioners funder of last resort. To that end Congress set aside one hundred, fifty billion dollars in emergency aid for state and local governments during the most recent round of pandemic help. But it hasn't been flowing freely for a couple of reasons. The first round of cash went out in late, April for one, hundred, ten, billion dollars. But much of it got trapped in bureaucratic inaction because most budgets start fresh on. July first there writers held off on any major changes until then the treasury department documents cited by McConnell and his allies account only for cash through June thirtieth. At the same time many states set into motion a system whereby cities counties and tribes would be reimbursed for programs and it's not like many of these local governments had robust accounting offices ready to file forms for pandemic relieved spend now seek reimbursement. Later in other words the I. O. U.'s simply haven't come in yet on top of all that the Treasury Department hasn't been clear in its rules for spending this money at first, it was only meant to be used to cover health costs and not to patch budgets but that seems to have shifted and McConnell has hinted that local and state governments may use the money how they wish going forward. The timing of McConnell's assertion though is one of those rare moments of serendipity where the local leader may have a shot to force Washington to listen to what's really needed on. Wednesday. More than forty governors are expected to join a remote summit of the national. Governor's Association. It's handed the moment Republican governor Larry Hogan. Maryland. Is No lapdog to trump at the same time. Local officials are hardly hiding their own peak in A. Survey of members of the International City County Management Association fifty five percent of respondents said they hadn't yet received the promised aid add onto this an expiration of a six hundred dollar federal supplement to state unemployment insurance and the end of an envision moratorium. The pressure cannot be ignored. Congress may not like it. But America is not eager to see it streets full of homeless jobless and sick neighbors accounting spreadsheets cannot justify that tableau.

The march could use another round of the paycheck protection program help is not on the way. The only person Republicans keep bailing out is speaker.

Republicans have thrown Pelosi Lifeline after lifeline on Wednesday morning the clutch of middle. Of the Road Democrats who made Pelosi? Speaker said she was to blame for months of inaction on Kovic relief. It was a rare wave of on the record discontent with Pelosi who typically rules caucus with an iron fist when negotiations stalled in Congress the brink of leaving town or leadership team started to mole whether they should schedule a series of votes to quell the uprising they seemed frozen. But then in swoop Donald trump suggesting he wanted a giant relief deal just like Pelosi and against the wishes of almost all. Senior Republicans this immediately turned the questioning on the GOP reporters began asking Republicans whether they supported the president's position they did not. But if trump wanted a big deal, why would Pelosi takes the floor with a small deal by Wednesday evening with the attention shifting back to Pelosi our colleagues melanoma and John Bresnahan scooped Republicans were considering forcing a vote on tossing Pelosi speakership. It's a measure that would be sure to fail but it would serve to unify house. Democrats around the speaker in the middle of Pandemic Democrats were. Already asking who's thinking about this stuff when thousands of Americans are dying rarely in Washington does a leader get so lucky Pelosi is far from perfect poll. In fact, there's no such thing but her adversaries in the White House and on Capitol Hill seem to unable or unwilling to let her flail. Now the White House says, we're vastly underestimating their four dimensional chess. They say, because trump embraced a higher cove relief number Pelosi will now be pressured to put out a one point five trillion dollar bill on the floor. Skeptical. But only time will tell here's what's driving today Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Heavy. Ten forty five am media ability.

"They don't spend news for New Year's Eve. Tuesday December thirty first two thousand nine hundred ninety fight for your free. That's the last time I'll say a two thousand nineteen in the context of what day it is because this is our last broadcasts of the year because this is the last day of the year. Ah There's an Friday I'm GonNa rear on Monday and Tuesday so we're GONNA open up to everybody and if your friends family whatever enemies get call taxed human emails. Hey Bill O'Reilly dot com the best coverage for the election next year. There's is no doubt about it by the way I've got it set up so that every day you'll know exactly what's happening in the struggle between the Democrats and the Republicans and and we will not pull any punches at all. We're not going to root for anybody. Even though you know that I feel the Democratic Party at this point is not where it should be and not serving you. But it's foolish for me to skew my coverage if the Democrats pull out in front of you and tell you what else is going on before I get into the news. Holly the Tara Dog will be on the discovery channel. Greta van Susteren show. Oh pet tales. Special it was going to run at eight. AM exactly prime time. But that's all right. You gotTa work your way up on the discovery channel that Saturday January fourth eight. Am Discovery Channel VCR cranked. Whatever holly the terror dog makes her national no television debut? The lead story today is a Zogby poll on Donald Trump's job job approval rating. I do not believe this. Poll Zoghbi has had a lot of trouble over the past few years. However there's one very interesting being part of the poll so according to Donald Trump's approval rating job approval rating fifty percent? That's the highest number that we've seen gene in any poll for quite some time disapprove forty eight percent but here's the methodology. Zoghbi poll has thirty six percent Democrat. Crat thirty six percent Republican and Twenty eight percent independent. All right unaffiliated die party. We don't know whether they lean left all right. This is the first poll that I've seen. That has thirty six Democrat thirty six. And that's why you get the higher number the others all skew it more back to the Democratic Party saying. That's legitimate because there are more registered Democrats in the country than Republicans but this is likely voters eight hundred in sixty five very small sample eight hundred sixty five likely voters fifty approve forty eight now in the Rasmussen. Daily poll whole excusing forty. Six percent approve fifty. Three do not Rasmussen has a mentioned more than once and was the only poll that accurately accurately predicted Donald Trump's win and two hundred sixty five days before the election. I I told you that trump would win All right so with all of this impeachment and Hora and all of that Donald Donald Trump's approval rating has gone up. So the only thing you can take away. Is that Americans arrogance no the impeachment. Things share down on my favorite words S. H. A. N. and in my column suggesting resolutions powerful people in America. Ah I use the word Sham. I hope you've read that Com- And another poll by Third Way. No idea what that is Is that African. Americans are going to vote against Donald trump in big big big numbers. I don't believe word of that in the sense that I know African Americans will vote for the Democratic Party much more than a Republican Party. Doubt about that but I think trump has has got to peel off twelve percent of arrogant Americans. And that's pretty good number for him and I think a lot of African Americans will stay home if Joe Biden is not the nominee biden can mobilize black voters the others cannot. You are listening to a free excerpt from Bill O'Reilly dot com no spin news broadcasts where you can actually see me. We'll be right back after this message.

Boom five airstrikes so yesterday. Let's roll some tape Papon. This the she got in Baghdad and attacked the US embassy in the Green Zone. Now I spent some time in Greens though is very fortified but Iran is controlling many violent people in Iraq.

Let's just pretend that we've heard it. And that we liked it. Because I guess assume I'm gonna love it. It's so good. I love it. I love being sixty five days of Katy Perry. Give me more. We were texting about it last night. And I was like, oh it's coming out tomorrow. I hope it's good. Of course, it's going to be good. It's Katy Perry said, I mean, I really don't question them. I don't doubt them. I'm just waiting to be bad. Did you hear I doubt? Katie. I don't really doubt that did you insane thing for me to say sane week light. Right. That's crazy. Do you love?

I'm going to dump a salad on your head. If I see if I encounter you you still have time to get tickets. So because it's coming up. Let's start with some quick comments islands the Bobby. I thought I'd take a stab at the house size. Because I'm bored and unemployed. Basically, a story came out that read had abandoned the dog that she outfit from Lisa van proponents of Anna pump dogs plays, basically. The reason the story came out is because wherever the dog ended up inner pump dogs cut window, the house wise accused Lisa planting the story in to read had says that actually the dog would either nipping at her wasn't working out. And so she went through the proper channels to rehome the dog, and then the place that she rehome does the dog is the one that abandoned. And so apparently like because Vanna pump dogs was tracking the dog like Lisa should've known this. And so the that the story got out there the way that it did with it. Making look terrible is what me believe super pissed off at least of Anna pump. And she is sort of like in hiding can't handle the thing bad. And now it's kind of all into her not showing up for like there. Work opinions and things. Yeah. And not showing up to these baby shower and ISA rent at yelling at her and stuff, but it's also she has been comfortable. So she doesn't really need the house is anyways. Hopefully that helped that really helps that really helps. Thank you, call her. I didn't realize this. Unlike maybe I'm just an idiot. But like, so we were looking at stuff that was in the Daily Mail. This is the lead up to the premiere of the episode episode premiered the first episode this season, featuring Denise Richards, who's lying cleared at all and the episode like kind of outlined everything which we were played we were played. But I mean, it also was kind of like Arthis was like Lisa gave her a bad dog idiots like we're stupid. So obviously that was not the case. It was more just like dreams Doritos opted a dog the dog misbehaved she gave it to someone that person. Maybe put put it put it in a shelter. The dog was tagged shelter called Vander pump dogs. Your dog is here. You know, if you if you want it, and they were like what the fuck. So that happens. I'm sure all the time. But with Lisa vendor pump. It's already a sensitive subject. I the entire episode was like, very sad. It was just like Lisa's brother died. So that was like a big focus. And then like everyone just got into a huge fight Richards was like, hi, I'm here guys. I'm here, Denise Richards. It's me, so whatever high who clean or time Lindsay mentioned that residence was zoos. Zoos and someone from I should clarify that they're all like in early twenties to them or twins once a customer, the friend in my mom's coworker sisters is actually friends with that. As all very nice, kids and justified. Like really small Varian town in Michigan where they have the world's largest Christmas store. Open like all year and just like a chicken place called Sanders. So, you know for Franken, moose, they're definitely of them. But that's the world. Go to right now is a hoop, but I just wanted to that. I think you good. To be perfectly clear, we would have not played a correction on this. Because me saying they're bunch of old white guys. Who cares prob likelihood was high? That's not true. We would have not play this less that last part because I love last part. My mom's sisters friend's cousin's says, they're nice voice. Just a Lindsey just a bunch of nice, boys. Josh Kisco, Jake Kisco Sam Kisco, Danny Wagner. We've we are three kiss coz. Oh, my favorite band is whenever it's like all family members. And then one outsider. Yeah. It's like all the all the family members. And then like somebody that helps like musically anchor the group like somebody who plays me. But I went to their Wikipedia which I did not do last week. I love this. The battle is created when one of its members heard a relative mentioned Gretna and fleet a resident of Franken mouth, which is with the from their use on the variation of her name, Greta van fleet was done with Gretna 's blessing, which is nice so Gretna Gretna is just one of the members distant relative. Gretna Gretna vanfleet. It's weird. Because there's if there's anything weird than Greta van fleet. It's Gretna and just keep wanting to call them, Greta van Susteren. So I thought I was like Greta van Susteren has a Grammy. What about that pivot? Band listened to that isn't she like an MSNBC talking head or she was like MSNBC than she was FOX where she is. Now, Greta van Suster grip Greta van Susteren because she's like a lawyer. I think she's sort of I feel like she was what role and then she was like, no never mind, I'm conservative. But maybe she's liberal again. I'm not really sure called their band win saw turn she would've given her. Yeah. I wouldn't sorta let sort of been called Greta van Susteren. Let's not but will need someone to anchor musically. So yeah, we'll need family members. Ask your family members. And then somebody to anger as musically. Hey, so these people who podcast, I listen to Lindsey Weber and Bobby thinker. They have they cannot play music, and they cannot saying they want to start a band called Greta van Susteren, which means they'll need you to do all the music. Are you in? Are you kidding? Someone will definitely be. I mean, I feel like if you have a concept for abandoned a good band name. That's all you need in this world. I mean, just calls. Looks at I as I as I revealed in today's episode, I'm a huge fan of yours, and I didn't realize until this very moment. But can you help musically? Anger our new band, Greta van Susteren music. Well, that's up to you, you realizing that you like that is actually so weird. Do you feel weird about it? Because like I feel like you didn't know it before you were like I trust Ed with everything. Like that is the missing let me tell you this. Let's just hold on one second. Let's go to discography. No to just going go to I'm just going to singles clarity, featuring foxes. I'd love that song.

So Liz, oh, I think was food. But like it's going to have an incredible year album out and just as so good. She's great. But she he just became the I guess like spokesperson or the face of this really weird thing called my body vines, which are just like dickers- that you put on your body and supposedly the fiber with your frequency, and like put you sleep like cost certain defects. That sounds so insane. And I don't get it. I don't know if it's unknown thing. I think I'm I think it's like Duleep. Also, retiring them. Yes, they like a huge thing. Or my body. Them's what's going on there, sixty dollars per ten stickers. And I'm pretty sure literally just stick. If you can send anyway on this study great. Thank you. Bye. Let's start with Liz. Oh, before we get into this like clearly scam that she's. Let's not let the scam reflect on our Lizzy Sandham, which is high. We live a big big big big big big fans of Liz. Oh, she is a rapper singer also flouted especially trained flouting. I would say she's closer to singer than rapper too. She started as more of a rapper. But then she leaned into the singing aspect. She's great. But also all over music is very it's very unique in that kind of it blend rafting and singing in like this berry seamless way that no one else really does. Well, like, you know, when Nikki Nikki is really silent and her singing rapping, and her singing voice is very like very specific. And her wrapping voices. Very specifically, very different things. I'm Nikki Manashe. When Mickey things you're like, oh NICKY singing now like like. Like she wants to do. Here. I am obsessed with her like like like when Nikki sings you can see this eighty year old like vocal instructor beside her being like like. She's like when. What sort of weaving in and out of it in a much more interesting and better with more natural singing situation? We're not like even Philly comparing we're not comparing them, but it is funny to think about like Nikki's singing to be a singer and rapper at the same time is like pretty difficult and unique. And I think that's one of the millions of people love about Liz. Oh, we'll also way easier to of been a singer. And then do some wrapping on track or just like rhythmic rhythmic singing or some sort of that kind of like goes into wrapping. But go the other way, which is like your rapper, and you also like do a little singing like it's like that's when it becomes like a little bit. Are you a good singer? Like, what is this? You know? Let's do let's do top level -pedia stuff. Now. Her name is Melissa Jefferson. That's why it's Liz. Oh, because it's Melissa she in this in this interview. I read she's from. She was born in Detroit. But like she kinda grew up having Houston and she grew up half and Detroit. And this says that she's from Minneapolis. So it says. But she there for a while. And so in that in that further down in that paper MAG interview, which is I think from twenty thirteen she's like, I just moved here because like normally people would move to New York when they wanted to get famous, but New York is too expensive now. So then like a friend was like move to Minneapolis. And she was like sure because she is sort of half, mid western. That's what. Yeah, it's cool. And so she sort of claim her we'll have to ask when we're there. We should ask. She did some like collaborative efforts. There was like Liz, oh bangers. There was more wrapping stuff. But then she's sort of sense gone full solo release this LP that we love we probably taught me in this EP that we loved that. Like people liked called coconut oil before that that was big girl small world. Most recently there's this new album coming out, I think in like two months called 'cause I love you. And that's the one Elson Davis at the cut. I think it's mild her I think the album's out. It doesn't come out until April April nineteenth twenty nine. No, she she cover the track. The track comes out sometime today, actually. So by the time this podcast comes out. She will have a new song called. 'cause I love you. I think the song is out can I just say before you dig even deeper in this might be one of the situations. Where like it was so funny when Casey must graves one of those Grammy's, so many people came out of the woodwork. And we're like I've never heard of this woman. And I was just like where have you been because it's one thing to not know about like, I don't know more obscure, I don't know. It was just shocking to me that a lot of people had cakes relieve obscure to me yet, but she is to people and Lizzy was even more obscure than as e. So I'm saying it's like this is the first time you're hearing about Liz. Oh, that's totally cool. And like this is not something that you're late to your actually just on time. She is she is growing at the same at this pace where I would say she's on track to be something by I would say the timer album comes out, you know, like the stats. The what works Ellery to and you know, the album won't get great reviews. If it's good how could it not be? But like get using you'll be hearing about it there. There. It's gonna get rid not on the album. Stop. One of the songs does feature Missy Elliott. So that's going to be kind of fun. We haven't heard yet. But the point is, okay. So if you don't know Eliza as we kind of gave you a quick explainer. She's gonna be famous. She has a lot of things if you don't. So you a lot of you probably do our listeners who lives with if you don't you probably know two things about lizard that you didn't know where Liz. Oh, number one. You know, the song good as hell because it's been licensed to hell for the past eighteen months. Sick. It's an every thing. Like you've heard this everywhere. It was the final song. They think of that horrible Schumer movie that I actually thought was just okay, I feel pretty in commercials. It's in trailers it's in movies. It's everywhere. The other thing, you know, Liz is this. Yes. She's a she's a mean, she's she is fully embraced status. More than one of those by it. She's also doing the flute thing you mentioned briefly do this thing will show like pull out the flute and like just go hard on the flute. And actually it's been funny because that kind of like hook has gotten her in the door for many places because she's become this like oddity where she's like, oh, she's like the Rb singer who also like plays the flute. And that's like been a funny thing to watch her kind of reveal on every single talk show because you know, that that's like they're obsessed with the fact like that it's great that. She's also good at the flute. But she's a she's a flouted. She's a singer. She's a rapper. She's going to be huge. And she's also promoting these stickers these stickers. Now, let's move onto these stickers which are the. The biggest gams I've seen in a really long time. It's like it's so it's so like, obviously scammy that. It's almost hilarious. What's also, just so flagrant flagrant league? Flagrantly flagrantly flavor. Like just fake. Mark Levin understand the FAQ's really funny. Let me read the first FAQ how to Bobby body vibes work. Great question to ask a wonderful question to ask when you go to shop body vibes dot com. And this is the answer body vibes contain frequencies believed to have various harmonizing effects on the human body. I don't know what that means. Of course, not all bodies of the same. So the effects may be different through proprietary technology. These frequencies are recorded condensed and stored within the body vibe sticker in much the same way that you would save a file to computers hard-drive when the body five sticker is properly applied to your skin. It begins broadcasting the stored frequency, which may influence the body mind bio field with signals transferred through sympathetic resonance. Thank residents. This interchange of frequencies is believed to have bouncing affects on poor tick your systems within the body say which systems now, I watch a lot of Dr TV and I know this is not real. What's funny is if you scroll to the bottom has like, what do you call those like this flavor? No, no. They have people saying like, I love this. What is that called testimonials? Yes. And it's a website called birdie. I've never heard of the chalkboard. I've never heard of and guess where goop all goes back fucking goop goose out of the biggest red flags have been a major obsession around. Boop, H Q. We'll get back to business in. This is really funny. So it says what which frequencies body vibe stickers us as though that would help clarify things. We've stream played collection down. What we call the sacred six each Sixers programs with one of the soul federal frequencies in a symbiotic combination of other supporting harmonic frequencies, and then the next question what our soul federal frequencies, and then it's like. You should ask. And listen to this hold onto your butts with roots in the Gregorian chants of the early ages. So federal frequencies aren't anything new. They are a set of sounds each with a particular sonic wave link they keep saying particular a particular wavelength as though that's going to help satisfy me ranging from three hundred ninety six to eight hundred fifty two Hertz after being forgotten for hundreds of years. They have become the focus of investigation for various properties in the past few decades various properties, what does that mean? It's the most vague unspecific thing I've ever read in my entire life. And what's crazy, though is if you go to their press page, it's like so many people have written about this just let never heard about it until yesterday it exist. You know, when it's like what the hell. I mean, if you wanna get fucked up on stickers grabbing icy hot you ever put an icy hot on your body. Oh my God. That is you know, those pads it's a long pass or whatever. So long ago sucked up on. Tickers home. How do you ever put an icy hot on this? I as ING. How you doing edible of real marijuana put on an icy hot, and you will real Maryland will really fucking feel something this sticker cannot do. Icy hot duck. This is not a nice, please airline Freeland. No, the an actress model and singer Caroline Verena. And he talked about it in the strategist. And I've went to her strategist. And she goes things you can't live without body vibes. These dope stickers embedded with frequencies designed to target different systems in the body. They're fourteen different stickers. Addressing concerns such as moon, it hammett's mood enhancement, insomnia, energy and self love. I can't travel without the wild to make a list of things you can't live without and one of them is just weird stickers. I mean, if I drank enough Pino warr and was on a plane. Sure. I would believe a sticker was giving me. Good vibes. I would be that far gone. Lindsay getting fucked up on. Just like tomato Pena Noir. Like, I love to that someone say body vibes. I'm in. I'm like putting just randomly of Frank stickers on you being my my body. Don't kill my body. Vives of remember secret. He didn't seek or something problematic or something. I don't think so canceled we need that website issue. Cancel dot com. Is. Secret has cancelled. But I will say Lizzy was not cancelled for supporting weird stickers. But the aren't mystic are weird promote what you've got to promote. I hope they're paying. You was oh because these stickers are weird the stickers almost so overwhelmingly, and obviously who we that. Like, you can't really fault the person from you have to fault the people who buy it love sticker. Gotta say Tamar, you're gonna see me on to be covered head to toe body stickers. Like, I feel great now. I feel great now just going to be other stickers. You're going to be like I thought it was all stickers so six oh funny. So anyway, listen to Liz, oh, do not buy body vibe stickers. That's the that's the end of this conversation unless you want to but doing is edibles and icy hot. I ready Bayview what you should be doing. What does that brand of edibles that we got in California that we're like? Nino by kiva. Oh, my God Camino by kiva like, please, we will son you shows and give them to all my God. You take one of those things and you are asleep in one hour burn like, twelve hours. And it's unbelievable.

And when you're ready to launch use offer code who WHO to save ten percent off your first purchase of a website or dope. Maine. Hi who weekly run him or snare for some color unholy about two things the first if the city of this going around of agent violence and food company Sion's, basically, she starts at the video with a tuna salad sandwich that she gets in fruit punch, and then end the video with bananas in her case it yet and the whole time she making people on set try the food, and they think it's disgusting. So that's weird. The second reason I'm calling is after seems video I went to her website, which is happily ever Houghton. And even if I'm pronouncing it right dot com. And it's like a lifestyle site. But when you look on the wings at the top, none of them work, and they take you to like a no results page. The only one that works is like her outfit of the day page. Anyway, I just find it so weird because it was like she was up until April twenty. So I was just really like to know what Adrian is up to these days thinks good formulas. Okay. My lawn. Rob machines X slash former cheetah girl. We're talking about him flash. Co host of the real we've oh, yeah. She's on the only the only good morning show. Great. So this Adrian by lawn on TV, she's on TV she's notable. I mean, she's she's famous she's famous still a who. But she's famous she also tacked on that last name because you got married, which honestly confuses me. I know she's allowed to do that. But it made me like, I know she's allowed to do that her last name Helton now Houten. Hollow hope Adrian violon Houghton anyways, she has YouTube channel called all things. Adrian and much like YouTubers. She does these different like challenges that are viral one of the challenges was my favorite weird food combinations. You know, peanut butter and banana, that's not weird. But like that could be something weird. Adrian had to make up some of these weird things because she didn't necessarily have. Them before she made the video. So what ends up happening you think that she made them up. Well, I think some of this may be she had. But there's I haven't watched this full video, but there's literally of her cooking Cheerios a pan butter. Right. So I'm not quite sure what's going on there. Sautes them with butter. Why do you know why she's all tastes butter? Why do anything? But this is not what the issue is. The issue is a part of this clip went recently viral because Adrian made a really interesting, I'll say interesting tuna fish sandwich. Bobby tell our audience why it was interesting. Okay. So she starts off on. You're like, okay. I see what she's doing. She gets out the tuna fish. She puts it in the ball. And you're like God it then she gets the mandate. She puts it in a bowl. And you're like God. That's great. Then I approve what comes out of blew out of out of nowhere salt and pepper then out of there's like a loaf of bread in front of her near like this all looks like what I am used to. Then. Suddenly a glass of fruit punch as in like technicolor, red fruit punch appears and she's like, then there's this. And you're like, oh my God Adrian, what are you going to do with that? And she pours a little bit into the tuna fish, and you're like. This is so weird. And then she's like, that's great. So she pours red fruit punch into the bowl of tuna fish. She slathers onto the Brett then she takes a by of the fruit punch enhanced Tunis out sandwich. And then it's like, you know, what not good enough and she takes her sandwich. And she dips it into an even more my bad opinion about this. What tuna fish made a little sweet with like a little sugar or like, something sweet is very good bread bread and butter pickle or something like a sweet tuna fish with like, a sweet moment is not bad. I've had sweet tuna fish before pretty like. Tunafish with raisins. No. If you add relish those like a sweetness to the pickles. And there's also like a lot of people add sugar to their Tunas not haired hate that. But I I've seen it. So her adding that like dip of fruit punch is like totally disgusting to watch. But I can't understand how it might taste good the dipping is wild. So you see that? Now, he NS Oun. Beautiful Santa some tuna fish. Now. The next thing that covers up the fishy. Taste good ole salt and pepper. This is turned into a cooking episode, then you're gonna make that altogether. And just when you thought I was done. Some fruit punch. So as you can see I have a problem. I was home one day in high school. I had to make myself after school snack made myself tuna fish. And I was like this is not this isn't doing much for my taste buds. Like, I was already. I just had really high end taste buds with really low class budget. How do I create something that is just amazing? And this my friends is what I created because you're using YouTube as it's like aspirational place, where it's like I'm making like these recipes that you'll never actually get to replicate the right way. But here she is doing something that like you almost like very charming Adrian it was good without the fruit punch. You didn't need to add up. But what's really funny what Adrian by lawn aside from the tuna fish the dipping which really got to see for yourself. We'll play we'll clip here is that she also has one of this like these defunct like web sites lifestyle sites that like she tried to call the number again, it's called happily ever home Houten. It's like she got married and was like here we go. And never host icon ick logo. I don't know if you can describe this logo. So it's it's the very like typical wedding font the like overly curly wedding font with a lower case ever in the middle. But like too long. Tails on five on a tale. So you have like tail ever and those long tails are then used as the center swipe of two ages Gabby their stabbing the ones that to make them look like agents, she used a Sarah font for the one. But the Serra font is not like the the wall of h it's just a one. So it's like it's one one ever one one. But then there's limes- through the ones that make them Asia. And it's like why did you use ones and not era? Caesarians ages. I it's it's it's very weird. But it doesn't matter because she's only uses website like four times total stopped updating funked. She's not updating it last summer, but she still updates her lifestyle YouTube account all the time, and it's called all things Adrienne which is a sub channel of a larger channel of like celebrity lifestyle. Contact called kin. Have you heard? Oh, she's like sees. She's Kim community other people in the Qin community apart from Adrian my lawn.

Maybe she's like who he now thinks she's we I don't know. I think she's like issue influential. Yes, she famous and successful. Yes. But I think and especially since she's moved to sort of focus behind the scenes, right? Which is sort of kind of. I always interpreted it as like a pivot because the she never became an actress. So she had to do something directing and producing whatever. Yeah. Okay. Didn't work out. Okay. Hey who weekly? Okay. So Dermott Mulroney. The name without laughing, but German Mulroney who were them one two three. It's because people mix them up with Dylan McDermott, and he hasn't done a lot.

She didn't get the she had a little buzz, and she didn't really stain it self. Guess you could be right. I mean, she she's definitely not a list. He's definitely I don't know why keep putting them into like the ABC. But it helps me like he's defy well respected. It's definitely like mine Abebe plus list, actor just be plus, okay. Wonderful. She's great bless her. But I think she's a who. Okay. Let's see. So I knew that Jake is fam-, but his Johnston Jimmu one two three that this is rude. He's he's like a action star leading man star.

Ken La Corte
"Sometimes if our guest is a famous person reminds you of why they're famous and get into the questions. Sometimes we go find guests. It may not be a name that's known to you even if they've worked in areas where their work is known to you. That is one of the reasons our guest our guest. today's name. is ken lacorte. But the reason. I wanted to have him on and i like to explain this. In cases like this is several fold one of which is he's the founder of a news site That is focused on media spin and and media bias and those sorts of things. And that's something we've been talking a lot about. So i want to get to that but i also want to drill down into the model of an independent news organization now. This individual has years of experience and he's built a team with years of experience at fox news at the highest levels so they have a bit of an advantage. But there's a lot of these guys out there. There's a lot of these guys disenchanted not just with fox news but there's even some good people that have left. Cnn nbc or cbs abc. lots of other agencies. You look at sherlock choson for instance. Who's now with sinclair. I wanna talk about the the actual business model of independent news because it's not cheap to build a site. It's not cheap to even if you're an aggregate or to find the people to do this so this is a subject that has been on my mind and ken. Lacorte turns out to be a a great guest for that can. Let's start with the idea of media bias. Sure you were A longtime executive at fox news channel was there by asset fox. When you were there well there's bias in in in kind of everyone who has a a is telling a story from the point of view And certainly when when we started fox in the in the in the mid to late nineties we clearly saw bias in the news media all around us. And you didn't have to be a you didn't have to be particularly psychic to see that. The vast majority of the media leaned left but it was an and fox. News leaned right But that was a different time. I mean and it and it was really just a matter of a handful of years ago. Where where you know the the the political situation there was yeah. Cnn lean left msnbc was more left and but but probably twenty degrees for cnn and fox. News lean right fifteen or twenty degrees looking at at different types of stories but being fundamentally honest and and and that's kind of the news media we grew up with. I mean i grew up in los angeles the la times you knew they were gonna support for for senator governor president but you could generally trust what you're reading there in the last five seven years and a lot of this has just been driven by the new economy in in media mainly pushed on by by increased competition through the internet. They've gone more and more extreme to to find their audience and hold their audience. And and you know. Cnn today is nothing like cnn. Six years ago. I it's a radical different radically different product. There and so you know clearly. There was bias fox news you know. I have a love hate relationship with it. Because that's what allowed us to to capture a market in there when people were saying really getting the story here Now i would say that kind of all of those have gone more extreme. Although to be honest fox news i believe even though rupe it ended up firing me after After roger ailes after drills pushed out the door i was a longtime guy. I got the fairly soon after that. you know. It's it's actually much more balanced than anything you're gonna see on cable cable. Tv right now. And that's often to the chagrin of of conservatives who are like wait a second how could you dare have you know donna shalala or whomever on and i'm not acting like fox's is without blemish conservative. Listen you know friends of mine. Get very angry when they have to hear the nonsense of one williams. But i understand the value of the point counterpoint. Kind of a firing line style of news. You know i thought hannity and colmes was was a good program back in the day and i loved what buckley did with the left. I think that's very interesting to the sort of The parrying and fourth. I think helps you you flesh out arguments. I don't want to just hear one side but there. There is a sense among many people on the right Particularly trump supporters and folks. That are not sort of establishment dc types. That fox made a lurch to the left as the election grew closer now listen i understand that donald trump is tough and he tried to push them into doing what he wanted and they pushed back but i got the sense. It not just to chris wallace at the debate. But you know they called arizona for biden before anyone even before cnn. There were a series of things that made me very uncomfortable. Do you have the showroom since are are we just reacting because we wanted trump to win. I think it's a little bit of both. I think that you know when. I say okay to a typical like angry conservative. Who's angry. give me five things. And it's like arizona arizona. Okay well yeah that that that was that was a premature call. And i also know how that worked how those things are worked out. That's you know that wasn't coming down from rupert. Saying you know. Make this go there. Somebody in internal and to be honest. I i truly believe they screwed up that they looked at the outstanding votes and said oh. These outstanding votes were were Absentee votes and therefore we think that absentee votes are going to break sixty forty biden. What they didn't realize at the time was those were primarily not absentee votes. But they were they were. They were absentee votes. That were dropped off at the polling places and as it turns out those happen to lean lean towards trump and and so they call. That will call way early. It was it was it was even though they were right. It was a. They got lucky. And then what they did instead of saying. Oh we screwed up. And then everybody yelled at him and then they would have all but then there guys were just like you know what. Let's double down and do this. I don't think that was a political decision there as much as oh we screwed up but we think we might get out of this just by shutting up and sticking to our guns i. I'm much more bothered by daytime programming and a lot especially the weekend programming. That just seems to by the democratic narrative that that you know when they when when they were running All summer talking about masks. My gosh trump is speaking at a rally without math. I mean they just kinda they just kind of sometimes fall into the national narrative but but the national narratives fair anymore. I mean you know as you see you on fox right now. And they're going to be talking about you know. Will there be violence at the will there be islands at the At the inauguration and whatnot. And that's you know we. We've convened the national media has conveniently whitewashed a summer of violence and death and politicians on the left winking nodding and not sending people to jail. We had comma harris. He was bailing out violent protesters and encouraging people to do the same through through through their lefty groups. And now and i'm not in any way shape or form saying hey what happened in. Dc was fine but now the narrative is men. You know the the dangerous party out here is republicans. Oh my gosh what will happen and and you know and even forgetting about hundreds of people who were arrested for years ago throwing stuff at cops breaking windows and dc in new york and other cities burning. Bring cars at literally at the inauguration city four years ago. So that's where i really my biggest problem with. Fox's they just kinda fall into everybody's reporting this it must be the news and and that's That's where i think they make. The biggest biggest stumble. Is that different from when you were there. I mean you just laughed. But i mean yeah he was different. I mean there was more of an awareness. When you're in a corporation like town i tell you what. Let me you to hold right there. We're going to continue our conversation We ken lacorte. He was a senior executive at fox news. The left has plenty to say about him in his time at fox. If you just so much as duck duck go him We'll continue our conversation with him. Coming up ken lacorte is our guest. He was a senior executive with fox. News and part of the ascendancy. How how long were you at fox kin. I was there just under twenty years I had been very fortunate in life my very first real job at age twenty two was Stumbling into roger ailes his office who had just signed on. George bush senior to run run his route his advertising campaign for for the bush campaign so i worked for roger probably thirty years so i was. That was it Fox for a little under twenty of that. Okay you know. The movie bombshell was was pretty nasty to roger. I'm not asking you to confirm or deny but is obviously had some issues right. What does the fox kind of shocking internal thing. 'cause 'cause it's like i'd work with him and i was as close to him as anybody at that office. I mean he was kind of like a second father to me and there weren't hints or rumors or who watch out for the boss. I you know that that thing kind of really came out of left field so much so that when the first gal And look i i. There's i don't know what happened behind. Closed doors. I know at least half of those allegations that i see 'em like she's lying about this and she's lying about that. Some of them likely true. You know it's it's kinda hard hard to really know especially when you got money involved and when you had murdoch's who are looking at writing big checks to get them go and get him out the door and then they and then they had those checks covered by an insurance policy so actually that twenty million that they gave gretchen. Carlson didn't cost them a penny You know i would. I those And i've spoken a lot of these on youtube And kinda gone into the into the into the depths on that You know roger was such an inspiration to so many people he had a. He was an amazing in so many ways. And i'm talking more realistically to business wise to politically to all of those things to kind of have everything focused on on on some of those things You know we we can talk about the fairness of that or not. And and i don't know how really serious things where i mean. You know some of them were like he may be turned around and and do twirl forum you know and that was that was pretty horrific in the in the metoo movement to to two years ago or whatever that was until he was one of the first ones to kinda kinda taken down by that so when you bought the time inside because it's kinda like hey. Your father is being accused of these things. Do you believe them. What's what's going on. They dribble out. It's all lawyers and third hand and so you really don't know what exactly is true. And what is it you hate to stand up. And say he didn't do any of that and then maybe he did. But you also don't want to be like well. He's obviously a horrific person because the new yorker says he is 'cause 'cause the media has has gone into a mode where truth is less important than politics now. And that's the biggest change that we've had in the four five six years that we've had going here as they've decided that that whether it's getting rid of fox we're getting rid of trump or doing those things supersedes the concept of of of of being intellectually honest and. That is the biggest challenge that i think our society is facing right. Now is a lack of information. Who do you trust when you watch fox news today In what ways is it different. Is it worse. has it lost. Its way and the importance it had for conservatives not only an audience but for folks trying to get elected to get the truth out. Is it still serving the same. End suga questions. Good questions I as i say. I find the kind of daytime rolling thunder in the weekend mixed. Sometimes you know. Sometimes i'm like oh that's a great story at the time and i'm like what don't you guys. We don't read the newspapers Why are you reporting this this way. The primetime show. Let's be frank. The prime show is as conservative as solid as it ever has been in the entire history of fox. I mean people say it's gone left. Well no it hasn't hannity and colmes went to hannity Greta van susteren. Who was a great person and a very honest person but certainly middle of the road political person you know she was on there. Who's who's who's liberal. In the end you know riley was kind of old school kind of conservative. But you know. I didn't like stance on gun control and and other things. He was more of a populist type. Guy so i would actually say that. That their their primetime lineup. What is is as or more conservative than it ever has been in the fox news channel Have they done dumb things you know. What do i really wanna look at the gal talking about the debate when i know she was the one that stole the questions and gave them to hillary clinton for years ago. Yeah i think that's a problem. I wouldn't have. I wouldn't have done that You know was chris wallace kind of an embarrassment because he just went full-throated liberal on a on a on on a nationwide stage. Yeah that that. That wasn't good and and that's lefty but look they. It's a business to them. They don't sit around at least when i was there. You know we didn't sit around saying how. And i know that this is what everybody thinks. And this is all the liberals always would say is. Roger was trying to elect the next president. And this and that we weren't we we. We were four first and foremost a news organization that was trying to expand our audience. And we knew that coming in with a distinct point of view but still fair and still right with the way to do that. So the concept that the everyone's like well why know we never really viewed ourselves as well. We got trump elected. I mean it was more like. Hey we have to be the only fair news channel out there that people can trust and and if you screw up we're going to say screwed up if he didn't we're gonna say he didn't and we're not gonna fall into you know the typical liberal narrative. That's always going on you. Just still why everybody despite their oh. They're ratings drop and whatnot. I mean fox. News had the best year of its life last year and and spill beats the the competitors big competitors to one three to one so there's room on the right for somebody else to to to to to kind of take that positioning of being. We're going to be ninety nine percent conservative as opposed to ox which you insert your number there but You know we didn't. We didn't view it in political terms. We viewed it in in news and our our big enemy. While i was there for twenty years wasn't any political person. It was cnn. I mean that was you know. We'd we'd watch and make sure that we were beating them on stories and being more fair and all that stuff. That's what we focused on. Take a moment. we're going to get to your your your organization likud dot com and just a moment but ask for me the role that oh a in and and newsmax or playing not just as providers of of news but also in effecting how the rest of the news is covered. So they're they're both they're both young competitors and they're both not well funded competitor You know you you you you watch you watch newsmax and and you know you would you would just you know a lot of what's lacking a newsmax. Is you know real reporters out in the street. Its production values. It's it's things written and how they're doing that. I mean they have some good shows there. But then i've also seen them where they had a riley on where it was just the audio was bad. He didn't have makeup and what he looked bad and he just looked. He didn't look like bill o'reilly he looked. He looks small. Looked like just some guy sitting in his in his in his living room. And then that affects. You know this is a tv medium and to a very real extent. Entertainment factor is part of that. I mean there's a reason why fox news has beautiful women who are also smart and political and conservative when they can You know it's like things like that draw viewers o. n. I'm i gotta be honest. I'm i'm less thrilled with because they are so slavishly pro. Republican pro trump. Say stupid things they just go out and whatever that thing is it's it's to me away is kind of like watching a seven year old boy putting on his dad's jacket and pretending shave they haven't hired smart enough people. But if you're somebody who like all. I wanna hear how great trump is and everything he does is perfect and everything that the liberals does and election was stolen. And we've got nazis coming in then you're channel But but it's just often dumb so it's like i'm not a huge so you know they can fix it. If trump stop those over. And and and kinda shined up those apples. I think it could be a substantive substantive competitive fox but what else to tell conservatives is stop acting like it's one or the other. Why why. why are we just buying the fact of well fox now sucks and so i hate them or. Oem an sucks. it's like you know. Let's be like the liberals. I mean. I mean you know on tv. They've got channel two four seven n. Msnbc cnn headline all right there the whole right there. Lacorte news dot com. We're gonna talk about his organization and the business model of news content providers coming up. Ken lacorte is our guest. It's spelled l. A. c. o. Rt l. a. c. o. rt. The website is lacorte. News dot com. Let's talk about the business model of your site in how workable. This is because in my opinion the marketplace of ideas the more shelves stocked with various products. I like lots of different cereals and lots of different beers in lots of different wines. And i think this is a healthy thing. Most folks don't have years of experience at fox news. And i look at you the team. You've built john moody executive vice president fox news channel. Laura fallon if i'm pronouncing that correctly was at Fox news so you. You've got some folks that bring big names. I'm guessing you could probably bring some investors in but I'm not asking for your tax return. But this is a slick website It's not a cheap proposition. somebody has to find advertising. You have to monetize. This thing is not charity. What does this look like. And how many more lacorte news is should we expect to see realistically. It's a really good question. It is in various. I mean we've seen as an explosion of sites and some things you can do very cheaply and some things are expensive. You know people are expensive getting a slick looking website. Very cheap You know you can. You can do You you know so depending on kind of your level of journalism and are you just basically doing rewrites which we spent a decent amount of time doing that. We dig into into some some original stuff. It's Let me let me say that. The the the the tricky part. And it's and it's it can be discouraging sometimes because the tricky part about succeeding online right now and and this is something that i i tried to resist as much as i can. And i'm still trying to but i'm kind of realizing that that that that it's it's that extremism cells and that's that's a problem. I mean that's our biggest problem. Perhaps in the remember the old days of yellow journalism where you had kids in the early nineteen hundreds late eighteen hundreds they were at the big sandwich boards and they were on the streets of new york screaming. Eight dead and house fire truck records. No prior the muckrakers yellow journalism muckrakers waved journalists type type of things but the yellow journalist the pulitzer days the hearst days where they sometimes just made stuff up. Well basically what they had back then was was quick because whatever whatever headline the kid was screaming on on on the street corner. Whoever had the most salacious headline would sell the most newspapers. And and that's what kind of drove that whole yellow journalism echo sphere. And and to be honest. It wasn't until two things happened. One is people started moving to the suburbs. And so you. By a monthly subscription to your newspapers and and therefore they didn't have to go so crazy on on convincing to buy this episode. Right here And the other was. Ironically adolf oaks founded or bought a very new new york times and basic said. We're going the other way. We're going to be the only guys here that don't pander to that. Don't hit one side that don't push this we're gonna we're gonna have all the news that's vistaprint which is disappointing. That they've they've they've fallen down into the muck is as deep as anyone else but right now. It's like it's not every newspaper you'd have to sell. You have to sell every headline every article that way so if you read a headline that says here's a a reason thing trump did this and we're not sure if that's good but he this and that looks pretty interesting people that a reason headline like that. Nobody's gonna share you on facebook or twitter or pass it around or an and nothing goes viral. If you say trump's idiot there's an audience for that. If you say joe biden was caught doing something nasty. There's an audience for that. And and it's tricky to to kind of navigate those waters in here and i think that That's something that we all have to kind of realize is changing and my biggest thing though right now is is is pushing people to understand that we need kind of parody on the right mean it went from an eighty five fifteen percent eighty five percent liberal outlets fifteen percent conservative and when they were just kind of biased but that was one thing when so willing to to completely misinterpret the truth. That's where we're in a very very weird thing which is why republicans don't understand why certain things in the world are happening. How could trump lose. How could how can i do. I trust these things because you know trump goes and says something and he'll pull out a car and be they. They had fifty thousand votes stolen from me and stop okay and politicians are kind of known to kind of spend their own truce out there which we've had the media be the referee for so long. But then you look at like well now. I don't know who to trust on on looking at that claim. And that's what ends up with with people throwing molotov cocktails at each other on the street because because the fourth state of our government has lost all credibility. And so you to monetize your site. Which means you got to sell clicks eyeballs. I know the metrics you know the metric low low numbers. You know people aren't even getting they're getting a half a cent when you going look at an article adds that they crap up all over the place but when you so are you donor-driven are you driven to start with so look basic kinda made a shift in this i. I am actually moving to really more of an advocacy model. And we've launched a a second kind of part of our business called the media action network where basically come to the conclusion that what we what we need even more than some conservative news out there is. Is somebody help helping. Create that conservative echo sphere and so on that we are more donation driven on the on the new stuff. It's you know it's it's it's it's usually programmatic ads. Meaning you put in code from google and from other companies and they pop up all those ads that you see all over the place and it's and it's and it's kind of a game of math at a at a at a very basic level But with the media action network which basically. It's a. I think of it as a media matters of of the right way. We are continuing. Expose the media when they lie about being objective. We come to the support of those who've been either either censored or slandered by the liberal press and we do things to help build up the right of fear and and especially in the in the in the online world because as we see we're getting slaughtered and and they and whether it's censorship from big tech whether it's it's financial services that squash off websites as trying to build whether it you know so we'll go out and and you know for instance in the in the in the online fundraising world. There is a go fund. Me is the most popular one by far and they hate conservative so they keep zapping out conservative. Conservative fundraisers on that. So you know we found and and and i wanna say worked with but certainly helped promote give go which is a christian oriented more conservative more conservative online fundraising place. But as usual. they're getting attacked a pay pal. Just drop them and banks are coming after them because of this cancel culture is getting so deep into the system. And it's and it's it's a primary weapon that the left is using to silence debate. It is nasty ken lacorte. The website is lacorte l. a. c. o. Rt news dot com. You're great guest.

Are we sure we can size free? Gold Cardinal Tobin Joe. Tobin was notified yesterday and he gave us the okay. Okay so well. I didn't know that yeah good to know.

Yeah Yeah that's that's beautiful time looking forward to another another another month. Yeah it might be. Yeah they're actually. They're kind of shooting for me. I thought I'm going to be the big that that's just the beginning. So you're still looking at. I know once they once they start opening up you're looking at opening up and then they're going to have to take a couple weeks to see if that worked. Yep so again. You're looking at two or three months before it even gets back to anything resembling. What we thought was normal. Dr Faucher yesterday said that there's GonNa be some sort of mitigation going on in this country until there's a vaccine want him to shut up correctly. I want him to shut up more than half sick of Anthony FAUCI yesterday. We got our what. What is it called the opening up America again plan as though we got yeah? It's kind of complicated phase one for individuals you got phase one for employers. You Got Phase. One for specific types of employers then get phased to individuals face to employers and so on on and on zero streamline like every document right. Wow so I guess the key here is just listen to your local government officials governors and your mayors and stuff to see how they apply to you. Well you call Joe Tobin interesting. Just call turney. I call up Cardinal Tobin Karnal Joe Tobin and Newark all right. So that's what you do. And you say Cardinal Cardinal Tobin is it okay for us to open things up a little bit and if you get the okay then that's what you do if not then you don't do it simple as that simple as that. is Cardinal Tobin available to every governor in the US though. We know that he's pretty busy. He'll He might have one of his underlings. Talk to some of these minor governor. Yeah you know you gotTa Handle. The main one's gotta outsource that you know. Yeah you really do so bad. So we got the three phase plan to restart the economy we still have. Anthony FAUCI saying They're going to be good. Should blue-tinged shut up. There's going to be not only. Does it have to be a cure? There's gotTa be a vaccine. You've gotTa be cure medicated. From the world before we even start up the gear about where we're at that is dedicated from the world. If you ever WANNA see your bank account again yeah if you if you ever want football to exist again eradicate this disease talk about it. Sorry I'm not keen on any kind of vaccine all right but I have thought to myself okay. Man Vaccine or football. Give me the vaccine. If I get to watch football again I got it. I'm rolling up my sleeve. If they're waiting to kick off I mean I'm I am watching. I hear that's how hard up by I'm watching games from nineteen eighty-three yesterday. I just watched. Byu Missouri Holiday Bowl. Nineteen eighty-three Jeffy. And I thought about sending you the link and then I'm going to doesn't deserve to watch my cougar's beat his stupid tigers. He doesn't deserve another on lifetime. Three I was just a few years back years back. Remember who won the last game though? Shut up shut up on. There's another one coming up this year. I know I'm excited and we're not going to be. It's not going to happen. It is going to host that. I don't do that. It is going to happen the NCW football season will happen. It will play on time. May there may not be spectators in the stadiums. I don't care about that anymore. I gave that up a long time ago. Whatever I don't care if it looks weird if it sounds weird if feels we're just show it to me on TV. I'm finding a good thing that Brett Farve isn't making those decisions though it. Listen to the stuff he for some reason he. Greta van Susteren. I guess they go way. Back the way other buddy. Yeah Yeah And so he was on her show wherever that is don't even know where show is. Rt is at Russia today. I honestly don't know. Let me let me tell you where I'm at right at this moment. I so don't care much even googling it right now to find out. I'm sorry a but here's what I have had to say about football season and to have an empty stadium is I mean you still have to win and lose. Play a certain way but you'd lose a tremendous edge. Some things don't really lose edge if you don't put fans in the rams may not. They probably get more visitors than they do. Hope it's not as a negative effect for them as it would be from Green Bay I see. Nfl season this year. I don't see how I don't see why you would let them play and not. I just think that we're trying to radically eight this And we have to do it at all cost. I mean it sucks but it is what it is. I mean if we want to get rid of is what it is. We just wouldn't is brought in taken out whether it's football on football's important and a lot of people but yeah yeah but it is to get rid of it. We have to have a cure for a stay home or or social distancing if everyone stayed at home for fourteen days. Wouldn't it all be gone at least in this country? No bread we. We've we've done that my friend. That's Former quarterback brain surgeon Brett farve. Yeah Greta Van Susteren she. How the mighty have fallen. I know what so what is it? What is it on? Did you look it up? This is This show full court press with Greta Van. Susteren years each Sunday on. Wb A Y. At ten thirty in the morning. Oh my gosh so really. Wbz A. Y. Bay no I think. That's just an affiliate right okay. Because they're showing full court press will be on ninety three markets okay. Syndicated syndicated ninety-three Markets. Jiffy little her to be just on. Wbz Y. I mean that's probably flagship. I'm sure it was. Funnier with just be just wasn't true. So yeah but but to your point though Jeff when was Brett farve guests? If it's a Sunday night show and it took us five days to find that Brett Farve did an interview about the corona virus. That tells you everything you need to know right there. All right triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three also at pat unleashed on twitter. President trump. After saying he has full authority has a total say in everything. Just said it's the governor says it's up to them up to the governor's when they opened up their states. Welcome Back Yeah. Thank you barely. Somebody had a little talk with him. No he probably as much time he spends on twitter. He probably saw yeah. Nobody was happy with that so he's further backed away from the claim of total authority when opening up the country. He said he would allow governors to reopen at their own discretion to preserve the health of our citizens. We must also preserve the health and functioning of our economy. He said President declared the nation in the process of winning the war against the Kuroda virus and announced the new phased return of normalcy. To feel like. We're winning the war against rotavirus. It depends on what you're reading. I mean if you look at what New York did this week where they sit at thirty seven hundred deaths to the ledger. We had thirty seven hundred more people test. Positive is that what happened no We're going to everybody who died died of current virus. But how do we why? Why are we doing that because it got near somebody They didn't test positive. Or in the same state I threshold guy next to somebody who had it and so we think that's what killed him. Wait what yeah. So they're attributing everything debt rotavirus and some doctors are really starting to speak out now about how these new new ways of filling out death certificates Courtesy of the CDC guidelines. So yeah pretty much. Everything now is related to the corona virus. That's what killed you no matter what. That's that's where we're at right now. Yeah if you have a heart. Attack Corona virus brought on by Corona virus died of The heartbreak of psoriasis. Yeah that was brought on by rotavirus man was eaten by a shark right there. So we've got proof right. There breaking news dies I wrote a virus or you go and Pelosi blames trump. I mean what is he talking about the sharks? What I'm saying. The Hell is he done about sharks. Senator Murphy was trying to tell us the other thing right right. He's like it's not. Who's fault it's not? China's vote is trump's vote. That's right same wish architects just but stupidity but stupid. That's what it is continues to be. Then you have then you have the The wonderful Dictator in Michigan Governor Gretchen. Whitmer she she thinks everything is fine. shutting down people from even planting things in their garden is okay because yeah it snowed anyway. Listen so we just had so. I've got stolen the ground here in Michigan. Right now in lansing. We're expecting up to thirty inches in the upper peninsula. The fact that we're cracking down on people travelling between homes or planting which landscaping golfing really for a couple. More weeks isn't going to meaningfully. Impact People's ability to do it because the snow will do that in and of itself. I mean that is unbelievable. That's unbelievable so it's fine that she said nobody can go golfing. It's fine that she said you can't travel between your own homes. It is fine. She said you can't plant anything in your garden. 'cause it's GonNa Snow Anyway. Yeah what I mean. You'RE NOT GONNA go anywhere anyway not GonNa go to the next two weeks two weeks by the way. The snow's not going to last for two weeks. It might last two days. Three days Bunt and by the way a lot of the farmers plant things in greenhouses to get it kick started and then take it out once the snow goes away so yes they still need to buy their plans and their seats. It's agonizing She's she's terrible. She's absolutely she's got crazy guys to she's definitely got. The crazy is a warning sign. Abc's got to let me see. Her crazy is still there. Hello Hi those aren't as crazy as AOL sees though. No but they're on the scale. They are crazy shit scale. She's on the spectrum. The spectrum of crazy for sure that it care thirty twenty two. Cintas this so many with these During the constitution got a little mean here making the rounds allowing fathers sitting around the Constitution Hall just to be clear for all the future mayors and governors. None of this applies if there is a virus. No founding father ever. Yeah we just we just put the finishing touches Incas drying on our names on the constitution but again for the future mayors and governors. None of it apply. That's that's survive. That's amendment one a thing. All this means nothing if there's like virus well obviously you can't do it with a virus right. I mean and they couldn't have foreseen that all smallpox so oh kinds of things cholera smallpox. They had all manner of diseases. All right let me take sixty seconds to tell you about expressed VPN.

You know there is some backlash now. There's protests starting up. There's some backlash over the stay at home orders. People are starting to get concerned and fed up with this. Others are yelling even louder. About all right where you want people to die. I guess you just want people to die which I I love that because yes. That's the other alternative is it? Everybody Dies. There's no way to protect ourselves at a reasonable level and still have some level of freedom. There's just no way to do that because I think there probably is so. That's going to be a battle over the next couple of months. How do we get back to work? How do we get the engine restarted instill not subject everybody to this horrific disease? Also stock futures have surged seven hundred points on the hopes of a vaccine. Which would really help things we gotta stick and Vaccine. Us stock futures surged seven. I think eight hundred points now. I think they're up about eight hundred points or three point. Three Percent S. and P. Five hundred futures gained almost three percent. Nasdaq up by two point. One percent and it's all because they're hearing some good news about a possible drug. That might the my work. That is looking fairly promising. And it's not the the hydroxy chloroquine. It's something else that's looking pretty good right now. So and they're doing I think they're doing some kind of actual trial on it So we should have some good scientific. Oh it's RIM DESA VIR. No well have you heard of that. Seems vaguely familiar. Some studies have shown in rim disappear to be an effective treatment against the corona virus But it's on a small scale but I you know with a Hydroxy Clark win. Somebody asked us. Have you heard right there? Yup Oh right here in my hand like it was just placed their agley weird. That is really something. Have you guys heard of any stories where hydroxy clerk win has not worked Texas by girl? Pat Had Asked us that question and and I think the answer is no I have not. I have not because remember the press. Does everything they can as you know. This isn't breaking news to make. Donald Trump look bad so when the Democrat activists in Phoenix Arizona. Decided to take that Fish cleaner fish bowl cleaner Right that had a similar name then all of a sudden that oh see see something really similar to what trump said killed some guy and that's as close as we've gotten to anything right. What's in it wasn't even the thing right? And there have been claims from people that say that they you know it caused their husband to have a heart attack or at caused their wife to do this and that but I don't think those verified. Yeah it's awesome headlines with that but again. I don't know that that's been verified. They may have had a heart attack anyway. The presidency all over that right that were the case I mean all the people I mean I I have a relative that Ah work done. Brought him out of it man. It was great. I I keep hearing stories like that. Doctors were saying We had one yesterday. He said he's tried it on. Twenty nine patients. It worked on all of them and they were elderly patients people in nursing homes twenty nine he gave them hydroxy clerk win. I think in combination with zinc or zithromax in one of the two and it worked on all of them. They all survived. They all came out of it and these were high risk patients right so hello you got the doctor in Los Angeles who also said he's been trying it on severely ill patients and it worked on every one of them Within eight to twelve hours I mean I have not heard a bad thing about it. Except for the fish tank. People and that wasn't hydroxy chloroquine. It was It was something sounded similar wasn't and so trump though did did he say that you can use a drug. The fish tank cleaner. I'm older illitch issues. The fish tank cleaner so sad that lady's got a shady past that crowd has been looking into. She is not a good person. Hey you know what? Chloroquine sounds like his clorox. Could I just drink a can drink a bottle of clorox? Well that do the same thing. I'm GONNA Drive Judy. Judy Putnam box. Punt showed up. Do clorox down. Don't try the clorox may sound somewhat similar. It's got a C. H. L. in it. Yeah Pat was kidding. He's trying to make a point down right. It's Sarcasm Judy but thank you for listening. Triple eight nine hundred thirty. Three thousand three pan get pandemic closures. I mean there's there's just no end to the pain. They're hurting gay bars now the pandemic closures bars all over the US or closing and and those serving the most vulnerable populations may be the hardest hit. Gay Bars have been shuttered by public place. Closure orders during the pandemic in March more than half of US states issued statewide closure orders for bars and restaurants and decimating the nightlife industry. This is left. This is left. Lgbtq is a two plus people without a place to gather in public Isn't it the same for straight people as well? Why why are a separate story for Gay people just weird? It's just weird. Yeah navigator story goes on to say that another thing that's been hurting the gay bar industry over the past twenty years or so is the fact that they're so accepted that just go to regular bars now and so they don't need gay bars. Yeah really you don't even need a game. Regular straight bars are not going to allow gay people. This can't have. How long have you been in that Cave of yours man? Seriously you're right. That's what that's the point. The right of course welcome right. That's the point yes in. There's a bar. The bar doesn't care you committed order a beer all know. Are you gaining from you? Sorry we don't serve your money's worth half what everybody else is like in Star Wars when you're treating the drugs like that we don't serve your kind in your get that droid Outta here. Hey Are you one of them? Gaze you gotta get out. We don't we don't serve beverages to those kinds of people. Yeah you don't really see a lot of that going on anymore. That's Oh in this era of increasing. Lgbtq I ate who plus acceptance. There's growing competition from straight establishments. I go wherever I want with. My former employee of a gay bar told talking points mental. Every bar is a gay bar. In addition the debut of Geo locating smartphone data and hook up APPs grinder also heralded an era where cruising for sex One of the bars primary functions really could be conducted anywhere anytime so that's grinder for gays. Labral Jeffy and tender is for if straight now. They gave people use tender as well or just straight or how again. It's like going into a bar right right so everybody everybody. Okay because Dr Founder. Yeah go ahead. Sorry and bumble is more for the female. Oh yeah okay. Whenever we've talked about this before what was that. I forget what does but but you know you were headed into FAO G. I mean they talk is busy contradicting himself. Almost every day right up and he tells us that there's going to be we're going to. We need to continue this This locked down and go on and on. But then he doesn't interview on Another huge show Luck America on snapchat and And he talks about how that people using tinder and bumble and grinder is well you know. That's that's up to you. If you for yourself you tolerance is up to. You know. That's what you're selling anything else. Yeah casual sex. It's like that your choice. You want to go to your job. Better sit down and think about that one right. I don't understand it. Go ahead and hook up on tinder if you're if you're into taken a risk and it's fine. That's not a problem. So Yeah He. He dropped that tip Tuesday in Tuesday interview. He said he's when he was asked about it. You know that's that's tough because that's what's called relative risk if you're willing to take risk and you know everybody has their own tolerance for risks. You could figure out if you WANNA meet somebody if you want to go to a little more go a little. Bit more intimate. Well that's your choice regarding a risk. Well Yeah I mean. Wouldn't that apply even more to get the economy going again or or going to a gym? Yes or going to my haircut. Wouldn't that apply to that too as well Dr Funky and if I WANNA go have a bite to eat out at a restaurant probably not GonNa do that at this point but if I wanted to I could I should be able to. I mean it's up to me to take that risk it's not up to Dr FAO G or the President of the United States for that matter. It's up to me. I want to take the risk. I should be able to do it. What about the cardinal in New Jersey if you check them in you gotTA CHECK? Obviously it goes without saying you. GotTa check with Cardinal Joe Tobin the Cardinal Joe Tobin signs off. Then you consult an attorney. I called Cardinal Tobin Cardinal Job in Newark so if you want to call them Cardinal Jovan maybe you take that action first and then you call them and you say Cardinal Tobin. I'm thinking about hooking up on on tinder what do you think of that? I don't know the Cardinal Tobin would sign up just thinking that New Jersey Governor Grinder Guy. Well is it Lightning at your house right now. So had Winston Smith pointed out that the New Jersey governor may not have been thinking about the US Constitution but what about the New Jersey Constitution? Because it says New Jersey Governor Gina Article One was part three says no person shall be deprived of the inestimable privilege of worshipping Almighty governmental agreeable to the dictates of his own conscience. Wow Oh wait hold on. Oh after. I'm sorry after consulting with Cardinal Tobin part yeah that parenthetical exception yeah I mean. It's so important. The fine print is so important. Is this the same doctor? Faucher Jeffey that is being nominated for sexiest. They want him to be. I mean there's there's people who want to put him on the list for the sexiest man alive. I don't know I don't know that that's actually going to happen so ridiculous. He's being they have they. Have they have a people that are voting for him and want him to be added to the list? But the numbers. I think they wanted to get to like twenty five thousand people that wanted him on the list in. They're not reaching those numbers so I don't think he's GONNA coming up in a few minutes. We're GONNA play another doctor. A doctor from Mit who's got a PhD. And he takes exception with Dr Anthony Fauci and some of the things that he is saying It's kind of interesting because here's another scientist who has just a little bit different point of view of the world and on things in the way Anthony Fao. G is handling this and what what is sexy about him. The fact that he is telling everybody that you can't leave your house. That's not sexy. Just not sexy to me at all anyway. We'll we'll get to the contrasting point of view coming up in a minute here on Becky. Gray unleashed pat gray by the way. Keep Jesse No. I've also watched in the past week. The mangum miracle at memorial awry. Shut up you know the stadium. No I don't remember ask now. I don't know what you played Nebraska.

No that's not No you know I mean if people market it's what the market will bear right right. Let's do for free market principles if it's if it's in high demand and low supply. Price goes up a surprise. Why does that? Why does the the the the laws against price gouging not affect stuff like gold bitcoin? You can't have it go way up in value all of a sudden more people want it. But that's plain demand. Try to buy one share berkshire-hathaway. What's that going to cost you? Three hundred fifty thousand dollars. That seems a little bit gouging. Doesn't it telling you man that's one share? It's like come on. It is impossible to define price gouging. It is since you can't you shouldn't legislate it stupid right because they certainly live with the tolls and say less traffic on the roads. The tolls of all gone up. Isn't that price gouging? Texas and I was just about to say you know like a bottle of water over at a cowboys game right. That's not price gouging. Or you know. Those are events evaporates or eight bucks at pricing. Yeah Right Thirty Bucks to park Or eight bucks at the airport for a pack of trail mix. That's not price gouging. Come right Steph. Five dollars for a bottle of water. That's not price gouging. You can't you can't enforce tonight. It's everybody's got a different definition depending on your geography in. What's going on?

You're being legislated through memos now in Wisconsin. Why not I mean did they. At least they talked to Joe Tobin about it. Cardinal Tobin said yes go ban the window visit so but then he then he came to my senses. He called him back and he said now.

That's I mean. They do kill few animals every year. Anyway as part of their day to day life but now they're really struggling right. They can't feed them. They've got no money and they've got income.

When they were closed so then I started to make it kind of like almost like a mission. Look around every time they drive by them. Yeah they're all clues how weird. I wonder if that's because people are freaked out about Chinese anything out that is they took a hit in the beginning right so I don't know whether they're going to open up appreciate the call. Thanks so that is that's strange And it doesn't make sense you know. It's not Chinese food that is causing the Chinese virus by the way So you could safely eat the Chinese food. That doesn't actually physically come. Yeah let's be. No I mean you know there is some food over the things that are considered food in China. That are that but this is America where we're better you don't we don't eat that stuff. We don't serve a lot of bat soup even at Chinese restaurants in the United States so I wonder if that is the season they'll get the corona virus shady. Come on tell me. I hope I really do hope. Not all right we got. We got some packages here. We got another package from moaning. Talia one pat no-no eight boxes snacks. I've are here three years in route.

I'm just wanting to be healthy. I'm I'm part of the opening up America again plan by keeping all of these snacks. Ramani in this room. I love this story From representative Thomas Massie. My friends deceased father received twelve hundred dollars in corona virus stimulus payments. So congratulations to the dead guy. No word on where the dead person's going spend his twelve hundred bucks. He said okay. This is insane but just the tip of the iceberg. This is a direct text to me from a friend. I called to confirm this actually happened. Dad Got This G- dad got his stimulus. Check of twelve hundred dollars. He died in two thousand eighteen. Well then it's not funny though because how much how much money was wasted that way. How much money was sent to people or accounts? That shouldn't have received it. I heard millionaires are getting some of these payments mill. In fact I heard. Millionaires are getting checks for millions of dollars. I wait. I don't understand no I don't understand it. I didn't WanNa read the store. I just couldn't I can't. It's not my job to read new stories about doing it pissed. Bet No kidding. So tip of the iceberg. Because what about the misplaced twelve million dollar loan or twenty million dollars through these other program? Why is it the? Us government can't keep anything straight. Why and then you want them to administer the healthcare system entirely you talk about dying from disease. Just turn this over to the government and let's see how many piles of dead people we have lain in the streets of America. Everyone ends in such a rush to get this money out the door and into the economy that the normal tests that you run on these amounts and recipients before you give. The money shouldn't have all been suspended. It's just a mad rush to get the money out the door Massey out that added that this incorrect payment also begs the question of whether deceased people are receiving ballots stimulus money. Oh yeah adding that. Several people who follow him on social media asked that very question. You know that's one thing. The Democrats are really pushing for one of these relief. Bills is that we Vote by mail in November. Democrats would love to have access to every go through their hands. Come on stop it. Nope man all right. Let me tell you about genesis.

We were talking about in fact. I've said we were going to play this. Dr a what an hour ago. Maybe and then we off on something else But this is Dr Sheva. He is an MIT doctor. He's got a PhD from MIT in biological engineering or something. I'm really smart guy. He's running for Senate in Massachusetts Joe and he's not happy with Dr Faucher either. I don't DIG DR FAO G Doctor. Fauci. I'm sure he's fine. Whatever he does medically good go do it. Okay go do it. But don't tell us when we can restart the engine of the United States of America and that's to other people that's left to someone else lake. Dr Joe Tobin or Cardinal Joe Tobin. It's him with your two for win win. That's okay to get back to work consults. No I called up Cardinal Tobin Carbo your job in Newark Cardinal Joe Tobin the Cardinal Joe Tobin in Newark views him with the Cardinal. Joe Tobin who's in Poughkeepsie POUGHKEEPSIE -pletely different tobin and not the one to turned. This is the Cardinal Joe Tobin in newer newer. Yeah right so that's who we turn to for when we can restart the engine but here's what Sheva has said about FAO cheesy and see if you agree or disagree with some of these points and with that we'll bring in a man who has a multiple degrees from MIT including PhD and biological engineering. He is also running for Senate welcomed so nice to have you on the show today. Great to be here Christina. Hope you're well okay. So we've all been held as a captive audience right watching president. Donald Trump handle the corona virus outbreak. The situation he has received both praise and criticism. What do you think how has the President handling of the outbreak has he? Well he's handled you know is the best they could given the fact that he's surrounded by sharks and people were not really advising him well on the science side of it. What what I'm talking about is a fallacy. And that's unfortunate because you know the president went through the Russian collusion nonsense had to go through had to go through the impeachment thing and now he's having to deal with this corona virus and unfortunately this guy foul. She has been in this environment for nearly four decades across multiple presidents right and he's essentially embedded into the scientific establishment which has created an unfortunate lie about the immune system and unfortunate lie about the solution to something like this call the Krona virus more importantly infectious disease without any real emphasis. Which is a real issue about the fact that it is a overactive dysfunctional weakened immune system that overreacts and that's what causes damage to the body. Fortunately vouches not talked about that because the truth of that leads to a solution which has nothing to do with mandating vaccines and shutting down the country. And that's what's that is fortunate if that's true and I'm glad you said solution. I'm going to get that to that a little later in the discussion so many you are talking about voucher right now. Many people are questioning both Dr Foul she and Dr Burks when it comes to these models that continue to change and their motives which you kind of touched on a little bit. What is your take on these doctors that are advising the president and a wide? They're advising him the way that they are. Look if you look at Kristina at the typical MD many of them go into wanting to become a doctor at some noble service but fundamentally the medical school education is really a big Pharma a medical education where the doctors really trained. If this then this and then is typically a pharmaceutical drug or some harsh medical intervention And if you look at someone like a Falcon bricks they're sort of at the top of their quote unquote game which means highly embedded into the big Pharma model of Medical Education and the Big Pharma model of what the solution is and that solution is typically a direct line from this disease find typically virus or bug and then recommended vaccine or some harsh chemicals solution. This goes on for another ten minutes probably about sixteen minute interview. And maybe what you tweet out the whole thing some you can watch it and judge for themselves now. I don't know that this guy is because I don't know anything about him other than what we just heard that he's a he's a doctor and he's a he's got a PhD in biological engineering from Mit. That's pretty impressive. But do I know that everything he is saying is true. No I really. Don't I mean I I don't know the science of it but it's interesting to hear another point of view and another look at this and he makes a point later on in the interview about. Just wait until you are required to have your corona virus vaccination card in order to qualify for a driver's license. That day could be not so far. All that's interesting. Yeah Yeah Okay so all tweet out the rest of that. He's he's really interesting. Sounds credible to me. I don't know if he is but he sounds he sounds it and somebody has actually in the medical profession questioned the great wizard of Oz. Acosta alive yes yes. Are you sure the sexiest most powerful all knowing man alive all right we've got Jennifer Knox? Who has a fantastic story? About what has happened at her bar with her employees. And the money that people stapled to the walls and ceilings. We're GONNA talk to her next inst- the instant you're begging me to do. This is what we do okay. I just heard the pro for Chad. The Chad aether show yup host a show called chest the Chad. Pray through show how? What are the odds that a guy named Chad would fall into hosting a show? That was called the Chad Benson show. Odds are astronomical there. You've got them. It's like when Lou Gehrig back in the thirties. Got Lou GEHRIG's disease again again. I would have to do some research but I'm pretty sure at least we're saying I can't hear you anymore. I can't hear you don't even know I don't even know you anymore. Triple eight nine three ninety-three awesome and had padded leash on On twitter hate Jeffey. You've seen the story about Jennifer Knox right with her. The Sandbar with boy. It was great story. Taibbi island Georgia You know like everybody else. She had closed down and so let's let her tell the story Let's Jennifer Hi. Welcome to the blaze. Thank you for having me. Yeah it's great to have you on I think this is so cool. What you did what? Obviously you were forced to shutdown right like everybody else you had to close your business up and And so then what happened? Well I think I I believe I did. Anyone else would have done. But it was just a board members sitting there in a closed bar drinking The answer was sort of right in front of us we just said. Oh my God. We've got to do this time on our hands. Money on the walls is a no brainer. We have good so why why was money on the walls. What what was the? You have a tradition there right Yeah it it started before me spend about fifteen years. I've only on the Bar. Six years and People from all over the world just coming leave love notes all over the place with a lot of staples so they they write something on it. I mean like what what are they like is it. Is it to a person. Is it to the bar. I what is that? It could be your favorite bartender. It could be. We just got married. It could be you know going to war. You know all everything and then they staple it to to the wall and then when they come back they can look up their dollar bill that they stapled to the wall or the ceiling or whatever right absolutely they find it every year and put another one up. It's a really cool thing and it's probably. I mean they probably do this at a at a few different places around around the country but not everybody has taken all of that money down and then given it to their employees who are now out of work for a while. Well it's really neat because I keep getting calls from all over the world messages. That people are doing that bars are doing and I think they deserve the recognition to you know. That's very cool. So how much was it that you eventually took down from the walls a lot more than I thought? Three thousand seven hundred fourteen dollars. Wow Wow and how long did they thank you and you said your board members. How many people working on this project? And how long did it take you to to remove it all so our board number B. O. R. E. B. Our board members. It took a three and a half days to Get all the money down. It took another four days to clean it and count it and Yeah it's a lot more than I thought. How dirty were your gloves or your hands. Yeah gusting it was so bad. I'm like people eating your but no we were able to give six people. Six hundred dollars Pretty often that is that is really awesome. Do you have any idea when you're going to be? Is there any talk about when you can reopen? Not really yet People are doing to go food only but we since we're like the fall as far pretty much on Taibbi We are almost out of food already so to go food and UH hoping because the longer this goes on the more help we're gonNA need so this is not just your employees but I mean you've got to make a living as well are are. Are you going to be doing okay until this opens back up? The problem is the bills are still coming out. You know we've can't everything. We can cancel but Now with this small business loans. I don't think are available anymore. We're trying It's stressful I. I literally have to just keep focusing on helping other people or I could get down myself. You know yeah. Yeah and if people want to help you. You have a Vin Mo- account at Jennifer Dash knocks dash sixty one at Jennifer dash knocks dash sixty one. People want to contribute to your employees.

Jennifer you said that The small business loans aren't available anymore that the money's already all dried up. Yep As of yesterday that's what they're saying so. Golly that's unbelievable that's unbelievable. Yeah I mean to be to put us in the same category. We have six employees. And they're saying any any company with five or less. I mean I'm like not the same you know. I need one thousand two. I don't even know what we're going to do right now.

When social distancing is over and make his choice then the best hair win for hope. He remembers that. Yeah Yeah Yeah. From freedom pop move over Anthony Fao G. I'm nominating Cardinal Tobin for sexiest man alive his Omnipotence. Omniscience is wildly attractive. Plus as a cardinal. There's a decent chance he single. It's a pretty decent chance actually. Yeah Fried Hump with Hamas Which is Jeffrey's favorite meal not only can we noodle things out we also have the ability to noodle things in Jeffey eighteen spoons? Pats dog is more courteous than Jeffy. Not sure you'd get any warning before he poops on the floor. No I don't think we would. We would shall not be infringed tweets We just witnessed what it must be like watching Keith. Open Christmas presents. What do you mean with the snacks? They aren't a good place for these I Dunno Jeffey will be gone before the lockdowns over. So don't make any plans of question about Putin. On a Ritz tweets for about twenty years liberals have loved Dr Oz and follow all of his recommendations by simply saying we need to open the country and that some people would die from it. They now say he's a quack. Good Work Psychos. They really going after Dr Oz. Now I guess I notice that she's I mean if you're not if your not toeing the line with everything thou- she says then Europe Ryan now and I love how they keep trying to pin the keep trying to pit him against President Trump and at least to his credit. He usually tries to avoid that little now. Little Dust and trump openly praised him yesterday at the press conference. So I mean the press can keep trying to drive that wedge but I think I think both of those gentlemen are well. Let's just say that. Trump trump trump understands that he can't he's stuck like trump can't push fallacy out no matter w a disaster for if you did that and. I think he understands that what would be. Kinda cool now bringing another guy so keep keep vouching in Doctor. She go and let's get his input into this thing as well. That being said these press conferences have taken a long enough. They don't meet anybody else up there hugging a Mike and it drives CNN out of their minds. Oh they hate the fact that he's got all that time every single day with that bully pulpit. Just don't cover it tin and lead. Fox News destroy you even more than they already are all right. Triple eight nine hundred thirty. Three ninety-three also Pat Unleashed on twitter. Didn't you have something you wanted to talk about today as well Jeffey? Where did you notice? I certainly can I have no. I've certainly no problem. There's a ton of stuff to talk about. Did you see in fact that net flicks is worth more than Disney is right now? What's your net worth more than Disney and we talk in stock. Are we talking total value? We're talking market evaluation okay. So that's the price of the the price per share of the stock multiplied by how many shares there are And that's one hundred and eighty seven point. Three billion puts it just ahead of Disney's hundred and eighty six point six billion how that is really something that is one company that is grateful for the Corona Virus Netflix. Oh My yes my my. What are you bitching on right now? Jesse I'm busy on some quips IOS. Quimby goes you kidding. Isn't that like the short-form stuff right? Three minutes yeah whatever. What under ten minutes under under ten minutes is a good stuff? It launched this week. They spent a lot of money on. I know it's on their phone. So I mean I. I don't think it can survive with The money is going to have. There's no way they can survive on the money. They can't think they had donations and start up funds for you know in the billions. There's no way I mean they produce the shows with like I mean movies. You know their ten minute movies of episodes as they've been really overall it's a lot of MTV ish broadcast necessarily that great major stars are big stars in them. Yeah yeah some of the other productions like I was watching there's one with the Liam Hanson were then. Then I love A. It's a it's based on the hunt and it's a you know it's really good that they produce all the stuff I've been hearing on these shows and they do want a day one under ten minute episode of Day but they end right so I don't know how long it lasts as they gave me ninety free days so after ninety days do I pay for it probably not. We'll see you love it enough to keep it going when you have to pay. I don't think so I don't think so. I haven't even downloaded the APP but I've heard a lot about it. There were some problems with it. I thought at first laird. Yeah well go you. Can't you can't watch anything on a bigger screen right right? You have to watch it on your phone or your IPAD so you can transfer it to your to your television screen Jimmy. You can't screen mirror or whatever can't let you do that not weird. Why would you do that? Why would you make it so you can't screen mirror that As what they started with was their thought was is that it was going to be and they really should change it now during the pandemic 'cause could get away with it They started with. You're going to be able to watch things in between times. That's what they're deal. Was You know when you're waiting at a doctor's office or you're waiting up? Where so they're trying to fill in little teeny niche area during the pandemic. There is none of those times right. We're all home right. Spirit do our. Tv's were and what would be wrong with allowing you to do it either way. You can watch it in between times while you're waiting at a doctor's office or your for your pharmacy for your prescription to be filled or you can watch it at home by putting it up on your big screens. I agree why wouldn't you do that? That's Weird I. I agree and in fact they had with the first launch. I tried to make go horizontal. They all you can't do that but they then it changed because I thought wait. We were supposed to be able to watch it horizontal that they weren't letting people do that. And then all of a sudden there you go. It could be horizontal now yours. Okay good well. They say the same thing with screen mirroring then I think so too right and you can't screen near what's weird is like when I bring up the APP If you just bring up the APP you can mere it to the TV there. It is. Hello there's the there's Abdel show you the promos and scroll through but when you hit play on a episode because Dr Ox Weird what a weird and that's done by I don't know some Bigwig Katzenberg Jeffrey Katzenberg and the way the two co founders and see it like I said they put in a lot of money. Production has been great and and the shows have been the ones that I watch. I mean they have a ton of shows and some of them like I watched the The one model. What's her name? Ashdown it sure show. She plays a judge. And it's just terrible just terrible. I want everyone carry talking about that. One might put John Legend's wife. What's her name. Oh she's That she is a an extremist communist Chris Christie getting. It's playing a judge and it's just her mom's the bailiff and his mom the bailiff are they. Are they just doing it at home? No it was shot. They bring people in and they do cases and they try to be serious and funny and it's just dumb again that's one that's a show that you know. They put spent a lot of money on. And am I paying to see that in the end away? Let me ask you this. Have you watched all the way through the tiger king thing are you? Did you get through? That wasn't worth I even. I even watched the extra episode that they posted. But I I would have. If it wasn't such a thing. Yeah did you. After the third episode I would have been like all right. That's enough. Yeah that's that's kind of where I was with it. And what about you done with that? Oh Yes benched. All the way through that. Oh Gosh yes. I'll ready for that. I'm hearing a lot about that. Two people apparently really liked that. But it's kind of it's kind of a big guy show for you. Yeah I mean it's it's nasty dirty and so only people who enjoy that should be watching it. What you mean right. Yeah uh-huh Guy All right. Well we've got more bad news. Because of the corona virus there will be. No new emojis unveiled in two thousand. Twenty one will be worth of Oggi's from home. I guess the planned annual release will be pushed back to twenty twenty two. According to Unit Code Consortium a that oversees emoji standards. Can You believe there's a nonprofit that oversees emoji standards it stop? Your families must be proud. Because that's that's a heck of a job. The Corona virus fallout has forced the consortium to delay the new version of the Unit Code Standard which underpins Emoji by six months from March twenty twenty one to September twenty twenty one as a result of the new schedule developers won't have enough lead time to create new emojis. That is heartbreaking. It's introduced to your new boyfriend honey. what does he do for a living? Oh He's on the The Unit Code Co Unicor Unit Code. Standard consortium Oh what do you think what what does that oversee the standards of emojis? Poop guy me you gotta have some quality standards behind your behind the Rosal poop on a cell phone and call it good when I can't formulate thoughts or words. You're the guy that helps me do that. Yes with like a smiling piece of poop. So that's like that right. It has to be a correct little smiling. He's can't be like you know it's it's gotta look like a happy piece of poop really does say well. I've got you here. Whatever happened to the fly that used to circle around the little poop Emoji because I miss all? Was There. A fly circling around it. Oh standards obviously. That was a bic leg. Emoji and I think one of the Emoji one of the POOP emojis ended up in Al roker pants by poop. My Pants Can you pay my consortium was really pissed about? That's where one of the original POOP EMOJIS ENDED UP AND WE S. It seems about right. The timing is right. I haven't seen the fly since about. No you know why I see garbage can in the White House our brokers pants and took off those pants and throw them away. So what are you? GonNa do you know? What are you GONNA do? Oud triple triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety-three and at PAT unleashed on twitter. All right. Let's just finish off the week. Oh some Mon- Oh goody. Keith has been pushing these stupid. Doug videos all week. They're stupid because he hasn't seen them yet. That's the only reason but because our dog videos which are always stupid came. Well then if I'm going to be If you'RE GONNA go after my videos here can I pick? Which ones we know? Let's start with the dog stealing Ribs I think there's just a story pictures still. There's no there's no there's been no. It's just a pictures. I don't do the picture. Walk Little Dog carrying a big rack ribs too so he stole that from one of their neighbors and so the guy goes on online social media. I don't know what you're my neighbor but my dog has so. Thank you for that about the dog who loves WHIP CREAM? Oh I think you'd like this one all right. The dog who loves whipped cream. Watch this he heard the can open right just slides over there. Jeffey really. You're don't think you're supposed to dog videos is I am what did you think I am now? Y You guys have tough. It's tough what else are you recommend one now? Which which one would you go with? I thought he would have thought you would have liked the whip cream dog. But let's just go with the cats and dogs jumping over toilet paper because you got the cads that are graceful animals. There obviously snobs but they have great balance and look at it. That's pretty good. They all toilet paper walls going there and then the dog and then can handle everything. Good night look at the. They had too many probably too many dogs dogs. Just kind of just like oh whatever just I can't. I'm a dog and there you go. Oh my gosh. Pat Nice standards are so high we just went from the POOP Emoji. Talk to dog videos. Didn't make the cut well when you have your own show. Then you can decide

Get on one of the best hour in the universe is reasonable doubt. It's white-hot Mark Iago over there and simmering ace Karol over here role is dressed like the lawyer today in the are you wearing a button down dress shirt. Blue blazer I had a situation where I did Kimmel last week. And then I did FOX and friends or good day L A or whatever it is. I did good day LA yesterday. And then I had a meeting with quickly morning. Yes. Let me guess all in promotion of not Taco Bell material. Thank you and not all, but but most than some, and then they said, oh, you're going to be on camera when we do reasonable doubt because they're filming and here. So I thought with all those prevailing factors. Laser on. I came in here. Looking like the Hollywood type that you are. And you came in looking like, the lawyer type well so much to cover where. Yes, I don't know where we start. I'm gonna I'm gonna see Gary will bring me a some kind of a soda that. I threw in the refrigerator at some the answer. Well, everyone's buzzing about the Michael Jackson thing, right? Which fascinating me. Let me tell you something. I somebody sent me the link yesterday or the they watched yesterday the link this morning and the part of it is me. And I think my brother mats in it. And I'm sitting there. Thank you. And I'm sitting and I'm saying I'm gonna come down on you like a ton of bricks, blah, blah, blah. And apparently unless whatever Senate to me was brain dead. They they thought I was talking about the accusers. And I thought that I when I looked at it mind, you this is like sixteen years ago fifteen years ago, whatever it was and and just as an aside who would have thought fast forward fifteen years, Scott Peterson's innocence would be now embraced and Michael Jackson's guilt would be embraced it shows. You've just live long enough Scott Peterson's being embraced. And he series was basically raising Scott's innocence as a prospect, and now the leaving Neverland is raising Michael Jackson's guilt, but I looked at it. And I'm thinking, okay. My first reaction to that period of time as I. Can't believe I used to have that mustache. But once I get past that that I then realised, oh, wait a second here. Well, this is a little kind of. Disingenuous that press conference that they quoted was not on the arraignment press conference, which by the way was when he jumped of the car, and it wasn't the surrender press conference. When I flew him into Santamaria that was the press conference the following day after he had been surrendered where I discovered because you remember Greta van Susteren, Greta was a Fox News host and before that CNN hose sh she had gassed me for FOX lay down the nine or of gauntlet. Yeah. I like luck. We're only going to hire chicks with teeth that are Pearl white, and they all had to be homecoming Quainton certain point. They just went or we hire journalists. And who cares? What they look like a certain point, it became Trump junior hosted beauty patch and. From an island somewhere and grab probably was before that memo went out, whether they call those the there's a term for the woman who it's not a den mother. But there's something at the pageants where they were they with issues house Frau. Now. So. So I had scrambled a jet to get Michael. And I from Vegas to Santa to surrender him on some crazy bail. I don't even remember what the bail was. But as millions of dollars, then get him out. I did a press conference. And then I came back to LA. I'm in my office the next day, and I get a call from Greta. And Greta says, there's a guy who shopping around the video of you in the jet. I said what do you mean? Shop around the video the jet. I said, I was Michael me. Pat Harrison and flight attendant and says now he said they installed a surreptitious camera. And I said, what do you mean, she says, I can see you and Michael talking on this video they showed it to me and they're asking for a million dollars. I said who is I got the name, and I called the guy up, and I said, are you on your mind at first of all it's Turney client? You can't invade the attorney client second of all who how did you get this? And it turned out that was their sound. Involuntarily. There was there was the in a second. You understand? Why didn't get there? The so I I kind of run it down the guy. The lawyer tells me for the jet owner that he considers this lottery ticket unless I wanna pay a million dollars. They're going to sell it on the open market. So I gave notice Ranan got TR for him ordering him to turn over the tape. And obviously the judge gave it to me before I could execute that the F B I got involved and executed a search warrant and took the tape. So that was the press conference. I was going to unleash a torrent or whatever I center come down on you like ton of bricks on anybody who was who was violating attorney client privilege. I was pissed and mind you I was not the only one who's pissed because I sued the guy who then got filed on federally and became a convicted felon and some judge got piston awarded twenty five million dollars to me. All right. So. Let's unpack I wanna pack because I will tell you. I make documentaries. And when you make documentary, you're making a film, and you're trying to be entertaining. Right. And there's on one side of the ledger you're making documentary so come on. Now, you can't make up on stuff on the other hand, you can edit things in such a way that create a feeling that may not have been what it was in the room or in the context in real time. I made a documentary about Paul Newman and him racing cars and one of his best friends was FitzGerald, Jim FitzGerald and call them fits it was driving partner and at a race in Florida Fizi died in the race car, and what had happened is. He they think he had heart attack spun the car out hit the wall violently and in the edit. Or in the interview of the team owner, they said they think he was dead before he hits the wall. I edited it in such a way where he died in the race. I didn't do the part where he had heart attack was dead. I had the crash killing him people. Don't really know. And in my world. He's dead. He's dead. Paul sad. It's fine. But it was a little creative license to make it a little more dramatic later on you cut your picture Paul moments later, just looking down and melancholy. That's not from that race. That's from another race where he just in his car giving staring off into the heavens. But by the way, your your Bill, you're building something. And that's what it takes. It's a film. It's right. But I think when people see a documentary they assume that it somehow like the end, I just in fact, I was just interviewed here. The young man was asking me. He said something and I said, well, it's a it. Sounds like great fiction. Did the interview anybody else on the other side for leaving now? And he says now I said, well, then I get it. Okay. So it's a point of view right now. I watched most of it. Oh, I didn't know that. What did you think it's compelling because they're talking about one of the most popular people recognizable figures on the planet doing something that is one of the most heinous activities on the planet. So anytime, you take the most popular person on the planet, and you mix it with the worst thing humans can do to other humans. Well, it's compelling, otherwise, it's just if it's about a fifty fifty one year old guy lived in Dade County up into panga king or panga Sunlen. It would be it would just be depressed. And I get it. I mean, somebody wants to make a movie what they? They do. Actors little I think when you say documentary, maybe that's part of maybe I get too much into the weeds on the language, but as you do documentaries, but the idea that that is sir for somebody to pivot from that and say, this is the truth based on documentary. I think is is unusual. We're just coming out of the fire festival stuff. And at least there there was some evidence that was dealt with from court, right? You're on the happy side and the sad side. Documents veteran go and a half week span. So I let me ask if you questions or you tell me if this sounds truthful to you to me, it's a very slippery slope you and I've talked about this before it's a very slippery slope to decide who we like. And who we don't like and decide whether they deserve representation or not correct everybody gets representations. Exact that's that's our system. It's not really well this guys accused of petty larceny fine that guys that guy's accused of abusing the elderly. Well, they'll get him any representation. It doesn't matter. What the crime is. You get to have representation and the first corollary to that or cousin of that is. And this was the same thing that I was being asked just a moment ago before it came into the studios. Do you believe in that's not the lawyer? The defense lawyer criminal context, that's not your job. I mean, if that's if you're gonna only take people that you believe then you're not doing your job. Your your job is to zealously defend its, yes, it'd be distinguished from prosecutor's job, which is to seek the truth. Why do I get frustrated with prosecutors when I see a prosecutor play hide the ball? I think that's as bad as when I see a defense lawyer who thinks he's Ella sleep defending. When he does something that is the crosses the line. Well, same thing there is there are lanes. You're supposed to stay in lanes. You're not supposed to go out of. Yeah. But you go out on the football field. And Pat Tillman is playing against Ray rice in my majesty game. One guy was a hero on the battlefield there. That guy punched out his lady friend in an elevator. Once the whistle blows. It's just a game that you're both trying to win. It's not who's better who's worse or who has more. In the background. It's just this is a game where in the courtroom we have to try to win for our team. Exactly. But there is a difference in a criminal court, but doesn't happen in a civil in a civil courtroom where we fighting about money. There's a different you can both win with an ethical bounce in criminal. Prosecutors held to a higher standard is supposed to be. And if they don't have here to that standard. That's what a Brady obligation is. That's what Giglio operation obligations. It's a very thin line before you get to the to a lawless state. So I think the criticism so I'll I'll still it down further. So the criticism is why would you defend a pedophile? And let's just keep going down this past. Let's just say you said, you know, what I was victim of pedophilia, and I refuse to defend anyone. Well, then. Someone else would step up, and then they would have to refuse. And then you either have one of two scenarios either everybody would refuse to defend this person who was alleged or had been head had not been convicted. But it had been accused either everyone would have to not defend them or let's just make it elder abuse. Everyone had have to not you love your nanna very much. You would never would never defend this person. So either everyone would have to do that and step aside. And then the system would break down because they're literally be nobody on the other side house. You know, the war somebody would have to step up. And then that person would get this Ling's in the air. Exactly. And that's one of the reasons I take I've got in my office. I tape up the hate mail just to remind me that that's why do it because if you're going to let I mean, one of the things you do in California. I think the code section six. Oh, six eight somebody'll tweet at. Me if I'm wrong, but when you take your oath as a lawyer, one of the things, you do as you're oath is I will not turn somebody down because of damage to reputation or the the there's a term, whether it's vile or something else now Scalia, the late great Justice Scalia is famous for saying, and he was kind of you know, as right wing as people always portray him as he was really the criminal defense lawyers poster child, we've always said that and and he he used to say well defense, lawyers, especially in private practice. They'll make a distinction who they'll take in the distinction will be based on money, and I say, I get that. That's right. And but at the same time, if you really do if you do this if you still do criminal defense, one of the reasons I struggle with still doing criminal defense. But it's not really for the for the reasons people think I struggle with doing criminal defense because it takes a little bit of your soul in not in the way that people think everytime. You try. Criminal case you, and I talked as I was trying that that murder case with that seventeen year old kid that that was very very difficult for me and vehicular man or manslaughter. Kate has what it ended up, but he was charged with murder, and it's like at a certain point you knows my sixty second year on this earth. Do I want that kind of responsibility again? And then, you know, I fast forward to today, which is a perfect example coming off of settling in and resolving I should say capper, Nick, I seriously contemplated difference ran settling and resolve. And. The. Got a h sometimes. I wanna know the law that fuck me money. This is an offline discussion. We will. So I seriously considered you know, just good writing off into the sunset so to speak for a while. And just not and just kind of doing the victory lap door, whatever. And literally not I don't know how many hours went by enjoyed it for about thirty six hours, and then Jesse small at and then here were taping this right now. And I'm told that the grand jury just indicted him on sixteen counselor Jesse small. Yeah. Out of Chicago, which cracks me up in a way. I know I shouldn't laugh, but the Chicago grand jury apparently indicted, Jesse small at on sixteen counts are Kelly who was accused of abusing young girls over what period of time and for victims. Do you know how many counts he was indicted on ten? Well, that's I mean, that's so now I'm right smack dab in the middle of that. I've got I got hate coming from from various angles. Well, here's an interesting thing. And I'll I'll I think what's going on quick gestion. I I gotta do one thing this do it. Okay, truecar. Oh, yeah. Truecar every car comes with its sheriff stories you we're about we're going to tell nother story in your bumper. When you nervously picked up a first date. I saw one of my first dates this morning on Angeles crest, by the way, the luxury package, you you got after a big promotion or the mileage you save by writing your bike all summer while you can't put a price tag on your stories now with truecar you can at least find out what your car's worth when it's time to sell traded in just go to truecar simply enter your license plate number watch. How your car's details? Pop-up then. Answer a few questions navigation moon roof watches, they bump up your value. High mileage I'm guessing that you news going to cost you now, you know, how much dings your wallet? So you can plan ahead. Once you're finished get a true cash offer from truecar sent in minutes when you take it to your local certified dealer fell cash it out or they'll trade it in when you're ready to experience a better way to celebrate in your car checkout, truecar today. True cash offer not available and also in all areas. Thinking about your next case, we Justice smell it. It's got Peterson. And m j taking a lot of heat. How about this? I got I was gonna tell you what I really wanted to talk about today. And I never get a chance to see I sorry to interrupt. I I got pent-up stuff was the case. I argued in Arkansas yesterday of all the things in the world. I wanna talk about. That's what I want to talk about today. Well, I know about as well, okay. I gotta figure. I wanna make a statement about Jesse arm. I say it, and you tell me whether you agree with it or not. First off is it just is Jesse Jesse spelled J U, but it's pronounced J O the know that Jesse. Okay. So couple things if you'd like to rehab, you're good reputation. I think the blind shakes up for parole soon. Need some representation, so if you wanna? Course moral points. But that's you know, I play more the long game. The I still alive. He needs representation. Get there was a there's a cartoon on my desk. I think you've seen it. I know that has which is a I think it was out of the New York Post dead gonna have to represent his family. It was Mr Kerr. It's some woman screaming through back in the days when you could you could have a secretary who would be subservient to a man the same Mr Garriga Sodom line one and somebody else lined to that was the Comoro a probably. Is. So all right. So that the Jesse small at a fair statement he started off by or the the news the powers that be. We're gonna make an example in one direction. And now they're gonna make him an example in the other direction. I couldn't I couldn't agree with you more. And then it's exactly if you stay in the middle you stay in the middle. But if you swing hard to go, this is an example of racism, whatever then pendulum swings back, and now it's going full tilt the other direction. It's exactly right. And if you are going to for any lawyers defense, lawyers because I wish we have quite a few. Prosecutors who listen to the show if you're gonna be swayed by that by wherever in the ark of the pendulum swing you are then you really shouldn't be doing this. I think what you're saying is sort of like, whatever the news coverage was to day after it happened or whatever marika's rack shin was that's a separate situation from what he should be charged with correct? That's factor in how everyone was upset. And there there is a mob mentality that used to be just at the criminal defense level. So we're talking about fifteen years ago. I used to watch it before that with Condit. And then I saw with Peterson in Cairo. There was the congress Chandra Levy and everything else. And there was a guy who was basically, you know, convicted tried convicted in the media, even though he was never charged very whether your knife on. And you're doing Duke lacrosse or your whomever lady prosecutor or DA, you're doing Condit. It's not a good setting. Meaning I was tell everyone live your life like a center fielder. You don't know where the ball's going wait till it gets hit don't start leaning one direction or the other direction your apt to be wrong. If you start charging before the. Ball is pitched it's bound to go over your head of you times. He and his neutral position, you can possibly be to get up there and have press conferences and go listen ATM time stamp dates be these guys are, rapists. Or hey, I don't care that someone else was duct in the park two weeks earlier and conquer the head and dragged in the bushes. We're focused on Condit full-time like that's the center fielder who starts charging toward the infield. Almost today's just been why doing that, it's interesting. There was a judge. I think he's still alive and in practicing as a mediator named Alexander Williams and used to compare the difference between a trial judge. He would say like a second baseman or shortstop. You're reacting very quickly. But he said the appellate court is more like a center fielder. You're there. There's a little bit of deliberation. You're waiting for unfold. And I think that's I think it's apt. And I think that the center fielder is how you're supposed to approach a criminal case. How you're supposed to approach it. Now. Look, I you and I enjoy in you, especially because it's what you do. Best commenting on the days of events in the current events jump into a conclusion, or at least analyzing it from a perspective that people normally won't analyze it. I think that's why you've got such a dedicated following is people like your take on things and one of the reasons I adore this show. And I almost do it for free is that there. I get the chance to talk to you to hear your perspective on it and kind of get away from the maddening crowd because God knows if you get on Twitter Instagram or the internet sometimes you just wonder if you would wandered into one flew over the Kuku snus. Well, I I have the advantage or the vantage point of knowing you as a human being, so I like you, and it probably Hankyu out of hollers my opinion, if you and negative way. If you didn't you could really, well, that's why some guys go. Crazy winters Corolla. That was also. No, I do I do like, you do also feel like all right to ask questions, and and your big boy, and you can handle or answer the questions, and and I I do feel like in something like a Jesse smollet thing. I feel like if true what he did was despicable on the other hand. I don't feel. It's the job of the law to go. He needs to get extra punishment because of how he made people feel with this act. It's sort of like, whatever the punishment is for the act if the act perfect example timely. Did you watch any cable news last night after the Manafort sentencing, I did not okay? I came home. I turned on an hour, and I talk between CNN and. MSNBC, and you have never seen anything quite as a stanching as the reaction of people to a seventy year old man, which is Manafort and the judge who sentenced him to one month shy of four years, forty seven months so mind, you he's seventy years old. He's in a wheelchair. They can't dicey. Seventy seventy years for seventy. I don't think he saddle Gary's getting answer. This is like at the sexy nine but his birthday is April. All right. Okay. Where's is he registered making out of me from? Wow. Looks good. All right, anyway, look great anymore insurance. Yeah. But I watched commentators my brethren because I, you know, I'm a CNN payday analyst. I watched people wring their hands about it. And as if four years is a slap on the wrist. He got away with this Bubba, blah, blah, blah and amp number one. Okay. This judge who got sentenced by never thought much of their case in the first place is the guy who said you really don't want this guy. You want him to roll on Trump? And by the way, stay tuned. I forget when it is. It may be today might be a week or something the other judge where he where he's going to get a sentence is going to hammer me even more. She's not going to give him time concurrent. This guy is going to spend at age sixty nine. What's your actuary all table on your on your best day? What do you got left? Jan Michael Vincent just died at says. Seventy four. So that's about right for Manafort. I again in it's a sort of thing, which is the law only works if it's blindfolded and holding the scales, and it doesn't factor in a whole bunch of other fat whole bunch of what side or who's your team or how much what what how did this affect news cycle of last week it? It's only fact if all that stuff is is advocating that decision. And so the people who are on their saying my God, how do you justify this to the poor kid on a drug offense or this? Or that? Let me explain something to Paul Manafort was whatever your feelings about this guy that you represented tinpot. Putin allies that he represented murderous thugs. Yeah. So does every big law firm in the country? Does the exact same work? And the fact that this guy lived seven years and then gets caught up in the special counsel investigation. And he's going to get four years in one spot, and I'm going to predict he's going to get eight in the other. So by the time, this is all said and done the guys basically getting a life sentence, unless Trump pardons him the idea that somehow it's okay to lambast, the judge or to say he should have gotten a life sentence of based on income tax of Asian. I I don't get it. Well, so again, be careful the society you're trying to craft which is I like this person. I like Hillary Clinton or I like, whomever. They're nothing to see. There's nothing forget about any that servers or any. That's that's that's all that's a big nothing burger this guy. This guy deserves to be put in jail in the throw away the key. That's a slippery slow at slow when it comes to the legal system. I watched this morning. Ken Starr on either side or both sides. Yes, good. We should probably do edge. And you know, what I wanna do?

So so let me just because I can't enjoy anything. More than about eight hours professionally. So I I came in here today. I thought easy day. I don't know the suit on I'm gonna come in you, and I are going to chat about Neverland Jesse gets indicted while I'm sitting here with you. And what I really wanted to talk about is yesterday. I was in Arkansas. Yeah. Woke up, and I was marched seventh was yesterday twenty years almost to the day from when I was in Arkansas before arguing Susan McDougal's case in a jury trial. Susan was the erstwhile business partner Bill and Hillary Clinton whitewater, and she was ultimately acquitted of obstruction of Justice, and I would like to brag and say as far as I can find out the only defendant who's ever been quitted of obstruction of Justice in a independent counsel or special counsel investigation with Susan. And then I'm in Arkansas to argue in front of the eight circuit. Which is the circuit right below the US supreme court on a case where by the way, this was really interesting because it was at the university of Arkansas law school in Fayetteville, and I walk into this courtroom thinking, I'm going to see three judges in some law students watching, and it is a cavernous place jam packed with four or five hundred law students, and the case is basically the mother gets a call from the school. Our client is has nodded off. He's got prescription cough syrup. They're going to expel him from the school because he's nodding off in his class because he's got prescription cough, certainly admist to the teacher that he also smokes pot. So young kid, obviously, an ice cool. They call the mother he's distraught. Because he's going to get expelled from school. Anything Granddad is going to be upset with him because he can't play baseball anymore. And so she's going to take him to a drug rehab place. She stops at the. House to get her billfold. So that she's got her medical card. He goes inside unbeknownst to her her boyfriend has got a gun in the kid knows where it is the kid grabs the gun goes down to the woods, and he's going to kill himself. She finds him in the woods season with the gun to his head and tells him don't do it. Don't do it put the gun down. He kind of he's going back and forth. She calls nine one one cops. Come and the they bring in some cop who's got a canine. They track the kid to wear. He is the mother tells him he's down by the river. The cop tells him put on the gun the kid raises the gun and puts it to his head. Cop says drop the gun drop the gun the kid. This is the cop statement kids starts to move the gun cop hits three times kills him. That's not bad enough. The the police department then starts a disinformation campaign kit was a suspect he was doing. He was doing drugs. They try to get his juvenile records unsealed. They try to they they have press conferences about how he resisted or aim the gun, and blah, blah, all which is demonstrably false. I get a call you couple years ago. We, you know, the it's obvious to me that something on toward is going on and the so I released the police department. I mean, I don't know what they're doing. They're trying to cover their tracks. Get it the officer's statement is he pulls the gun away from his head. Officers. Got statement is I told him drop the gun and he put the gun to his head. I told him drop the gun again and he didn't comply. He just started to move the gun in the middle of second. I shot him three times, quote, unquote. He didn't say started pointed me, no. In fact, he's lie. Well, hold on. I'll tell. You. You're right there. I come in here. So I the we filed a lawsuit the federal district court judge dismisses the case says, no, I'm not gonna even let you do discovery. On this case, I'm going to dismiss it. So we go to the eighth circuit court of appeals. I came out. And I said you're on his I realized I started off my argument. I said I I realized this morning when I woke up here on the wall school campus. It's twenty years since the trajectory of my life changed in an Arkansas courtroom McDougal case changed my life. And now here I'm back at the law school and on a case of change, the my clients, the mother's life, and I wanna thank you. And I said I'm going to take a second kind of drink this which I did because it although some guy tweeted me last night when I said that he says, oh, you're three fingers in as Corolla. And I said now, it's lent Lee allowed God lent again. Yeah. Lend against the worst. So I started the argument with the judges saying, you know, towing this joke for years, and I shouldn't joke because this is a wrongful death case. But I've always talked about people who are so dense that they put the gun to their head like this, and and say stop, or I'll shoot, and I said, that's what happened in this case the cops he puts the gun to his head in the cups, stopper, shoot. And so I'm doing that argument and my opponent gets up and wonderful woman. Young lawyer female lawyer, she's very articulate, and the she starts to make a presentation in one of the judges jumps in and says, you're not saying what Mr Garriga says saying are you that the failure to comply with the order by putting the gun to his head gave him the right to shoot. And she says, no, that's exactly right. He didn't comply with the order to drop the gun. He put it to his head. And the judge said, that's your that's your argument. She said, yes, I got back up. We've come to a great place in America. We now say in order, we're not the cop wasn't threatened by gun. He was if you're going to commit suicide. I'm gonna kill you. I I've been that's basically the justification for a homicide is suicide. What am I missing while? There was a side by cop. Right. And that was kind of in vogue a few years ago. Not so much anymore. I think the kind of the deal was is if you commit suicide you don't get to heaven. But if somebody shoots it's obviously crazy thought, but it's possessed by crazy person. Obviously how many that wasn't this. No, he wasn't a religious person. He was a kid who was distraught. As you can note, any body came anything. No. Well, there there are dash cams, but we've done pretty good analysis. And it's clear to me that and they've wave show something now any partners to cooperate or anything. Nobody else shot. That's what I'll tell you. But other human beings. Yeah. There's other humid. So if I'm the cop who squeezed the trigger there's two things that are stopping me from altering or. Customising this story. Documentary. Yes. One is footage, bodycam whatever or game. And then the others other people that might sort of give a different terp patient of what mine turps ACL's fence were somehow the cops. The only thing we were able to get our hands on because the judge stayed discovery was an interview of the cop ten days later for nine minutes with his lawyer present. So I'm not sure why the cop didn't say he pulled the gun from his head. And he pointed at me because I don't know any other way to refute that if you're alone with the guy, I'm gonna make a bowl prediction, if the case gets reversed, and they reinstate the case, I'm gonna make a bold prediction that that's where they go. But the problem they've got and if my opponents are listening council, you that I will order the audiotape and the videotape of the argument there judicially a stopped which means they've already taken the position that the cop had the right? It to shoot him the minute. He didn't comply with the order and put the gun to his head. They said that on the record yesterday. Yeah. It's it's a problem. I was thinking about that case out of I dunno Sacramento, or Fresno, or whatever where the cops chasing, the young black guy and hit a phone in his hand. And there's a there's a fundamental problem, which is the cops. Unfortunately, it's not a, you know. You watch. I was watching t j Hooker last night. Does anybody listens? Remember TJ Hooker? How many of your references this another this week? Insane thing for TJ Hooker. If I'll watch TJ Hooker. It'll take me to two and a half hours to get a fifty minute episode because pause it and think about what's going on shatner's hair and his Adrian Schmidt and everything. And if you pause it for too long, the cable box start showing you first run movies, you can watch. And I went pause it. I went to the bathroom I came back. And it was like do you wanna watch green book, and I'm like, I'm watching T J Hooker. Nobody's watching TJ hookers. Interested in green book and in vice versa. Now TJ gets into a fight. And I was thinking of you fought a guy the LA river every every chasing ended up in the LA river in the eighties and at some point the guys out and the guy's got a knife. And he's going come on come on like lunging TJ TJ hookers got to gun in the holster. And he's taken the guy on the knife with nothing and the guys lunging and he's stepping back. And I thought that's the TV ver. Version of how this works. The real version is the guy doesn't have the knife. The guy has a ballpoint pen and your gun is out, and you're unloading clip into it three shots. There's a fundamental problem in the fundamental problem is the cop has a gun. And if there's a less than one percent chance less than one percent chance that that person they're chasing or the person with the gun or the guy with the knife in the LA river could hurt them. That's all it's going to take for them to squeeze the trigger. And unfortunately, I don't know how to legislate that they're wired. Most people are wired, sadly. Well, couple of those couple of things notwithstanding the case, I was just describing I I've done a as you know, we talk about all the time. I I think in this world for whatever it's worth, we tend the our office tends to do more of these police shootings and anybody else, and I've seen there's some patterns that I've noticed, and obviously this is a generalization, but one there's off times a mental health challenge on the person who shot from that seems to fit seventy percent of the cases they're off times is a post traumatic. Mental health challenge on the part of the cop. You have a lot of veterans who are who were in combat zone. So you've got that you have you've got now militarized police departments which seemed to be the in the Vogel at least in not so much last year. But prior to that, so when you start to put all of those things together that almost is a recipe for what we have going shirt. And also, it's a self selecting group. I wouldn't wanna be a cop. Neither I wouldn't want to be put in that situation have to kill somebody. I mean, I that's one of the reasons I don't have anything necessarily against guns per se, but I don't wanna be in a position where but there's there's also just a very basic quality. Which is that gun is sort of a tool and the tool is meant to be used. It's not a you give me a brand new cordless drill and Lynette says. Hey. The the MIR upstairs dirty gotta clean the glass. Go. Let me get that cordless drill out. She's go. We're going to do with that. I don't know put a buffer something. It's like I want to use it. It's here wanting interesting, I think he'll themselves at a higher rate. Go why two cops kill themselves. Oh, it's depressing jobs. You have a suicide machine strapped to your hip. Well, anytime you're having a bad day. Anytime you're lady steps out on your you drank too. It's right there. Yeah. And and you can act quickly, and, you know, whether it's a gun, or, you know, I think of you sometimes when I see staple guns because to me I have kind of a little apprehension about that. I mean, that's I don't know how to use one. To me. It seems like something where you could hurt somebody with it or a nail gun or something like that. I you don't even think twice. I do. Not do you literally I've seen you around him. And it's it's it's you know, it's your world. Yes. Oh, it's it's a problem that I don't think is going to go way. Unfortunately, I don't know. Look I had a shot gun for protection and at my home many years ago, and I took the shotgun. And I said how many rounds is sing hold and they said holds eight rounds. And I said okay, make the first round a blank whoever breaks in my house. It's going to here chick chick, boom. But nothing's going to happen and will make the second round rock cell. So that's going to be chick. Boom whole blown open and the curtain and then the next six that'll be live. That's very do. You have you talked about this before has been a while many many years, but I very fascinating combination together for myself and somebody says arguments like what if the shit really goes down. You know, how fast you can get to those six live ones if the shit goes down less than a second. Yeah. So that was for me because I didn't want my teenage son forgot his key coming in the window of his room and me to do something stupid in the middle of the night. I didn't wanna be running down the stairs trip and have the gun. Go off on me. You know, like there needs to be a sort of a version. I'm not saying that, but I'm saying a version of that with cops and their weapons there needs to be some version of the first bullets not gonna kill you. I there's there's a lot. Of really good thinking and writing and teaching in this area, and the mental health uh Specht, I think is essential to it. And it just I don't know why there is a more engagement because it would save so much resources. I mean, just it's heartbreaking. I I mean, you're going to do the ad, but I will tell you one thing. I there there aren't any cases for me personally that are harder than representing a parents of of a kid who's died. That's it's excruciating. Love to never have to do that. Again. I'll I'll tease that was at Sacramento, Fresno. Where was that shooting? They just let everyone off. There was a lot of unrest in the community was a big deal. The mom was very upset. Gary looked is that that seemed like a pretty bad shooting. But it was it was at night guy pulmonary at a cell phone. Like, it's so I'm curious what your take is on that. Or what you know about that one that was to cops chasing. In American paid any attention to that. Well, then we're circling back to 'em j. Okay, I'm not I'm not done with that. I wanna hear I want your whole on. I do and I'll give it to your. I I'll tell you about brother Inc. Vestment tank printer it happen. So all time right before deadline key presentation printer runs out Inc. Tired of the frequent expensive hassle replacing ink cartridges brother Inc, vestment tank, printers, internal inks storage tank. Larger ink cartridges and intelligent page gauge to display, inC levels. It literally will change the way you think in the way, they're color inkjet all in one printers deliver convenience low cost per page and affordability uninterrupted printing with up to two years of ink included in the box. That is amazing. This amazing. Do not sweat over the printer or running out of ink, and you. Can learn more at change the way you Inc dot com. That has changed the way you Inc dot com. So you've not seen the you've not seen the the documentary. I have not heard bad stuff. Right. You already know. I have a little bit of your same wiring. I think which is a you're busy all the time. So makes it easy not to sort of go back. And and do this is your life episode three times a week? But also if somebody says. So and so was talking shit about you on their podcast. You wanna hear it I go now, I I'm assuming they do right? I always assumed that I was like I in fact, I kind of I I don't you revel in it just a bit bright. My my thinking of it is. It only exist if you witness it or you imbibe in doesn't really rich refueling in the forest. Well, it kind of is. I mean, if you think about it from from a sort of psychological slap point from psychological standpoint that look I and I for years getting this fight if somebody emails to the office a lot of times if I think I may respond. I may just are you out of your mind, or I may just say mother never thought that when I Representative soliciting prostitution or some other smartest revolve. But if I got drowned out or depressed or engaged by everybody who I didn't think knew something, but was acting reacting viscerally. I would rather engage with it. I mean, I literally would rather engage when it's face to face. But I'm not gonna go out looking for it. I don't have time to look forward. If that happened. I think I go so oranges on the site of the freeways, so they. They. Obviously, I just well, obviously, Michael Jackson comes across is a heinous creature in this documentary. And then you're the guy who defended Michael Jackson. So you're sort of. The what do they call it the devil's at your heinous, adjacent, right? Basically what you are. And that's that's the way people will perceive it now again who can say, I this would this would be under. This would be presuming youth thought he was guilty when you greed to defend that's the first thing that has to be done. Right. You if you're going to end it depends on what are you saying? What is the what is the calculation? You want somebody to defend somebody who's accused of a crime. But you don't really want them to be effective. You want them to be the potted plant go through the motions? Then second of all mind, you the the reason or the basis upon which I'm making this conclusion is something that is a narrative that as you said may or may not be accurate, and it made there may be fictional elements to it, and that's what you're going to base it on. Okay. Then I get that that if it's going to be a visceral. Fiction based evidentiary construct. That's fine. But then don't tell me that when one of the main accusers already testified, and and that they didn't prove their case. What I don't understand the system that you want. They don't really they don't have a sort of. It's sort of a Cossio Cortez. Talking about the green new deal. You know, you go look we're gonna live in a world where everyone drives George Jetsons car and everything is powered by the wind and solar, and you go how are we going to do that? Because you're going to start asking questions, then you're part of the problem. It's like the question is what's the next question? Right. So Mark shouldn't be representing people. You disagree with or people who are later found out to be guilty or people you think is guilty. Then what? Well, I tell you what the slippery slope is a slippery slope is that you've got a case that's been the law for over fifty years where Gideon versus Wainwright where person is. Is entitled to a defense whether they're indigent or not. So if you're saying, okay, you can't buy Justice. I heard that last night. That's all they were talking about with Manafort. He bought Justice. I don't know how we bought Justice. But and I will coming attraction. He's he's going to get all the Justice. He deserves trust me wait until the sends the second time. But having said that then what is it? Then you give them a court appointed lawyer. Okay. And then well, I don't wanna pay for a court appointed lawyer that's tax payer who's paying for that. That's me. I don't wanna pay for a quarter Brownlow low. So we're not going to give away if we think he's guilty. He doesn't lawyer logistical straight to sentencing, and then you've reached a point where they way we really don't need a criminal Justice system. Just vote pass on it'd be popularity contest. So also, it presumes like I said that you know, guilt or innocence. I will tell you. I've been shocked about people who've been guilty and I've been equally shock. About people who've been in g you even see if I were in your position. Once I agreed to take on the case, which is essentially take the job, I wouldn't be interested in whether they did it or not I would just affectively try to do the case as best. I could I would almost find it distracting kind of even one way or the other. I just that wouldn't that'd be neither here nor there. Once I signed up. I take the position, and this is evolved that I do not want to until I see the universe of what the prosecution has until I'm well versed enough. And know what they've that. I don't believe in on a know what the their story is for a variety of reasons for ethical reasons for tactical reasons, I want to know what the prosecution has the way the system is set up is the prosecution if they're trying to take your liberty has to prove it. That's the basic tenant. You wanna talk about being strict construction as somebody would years to the constitution, read the federal? Papers. That is exactly what they debated the whole idea of nine guilty should go should be set free. So we don't convict one innocent is the premise and the bedrock on the presumption of innocence and beyond a reasonable doubt. If you wanna tear that up if you want to say, no that should not be the case, then are tearing up the constitution that is the basis upon which the system in our institutions are developed. I understand right now that we're in free fall on our institutions, I get that. But that's not for me to shirk. My responsibility is not for me to shrink from that. It's the opposite. I who better than me. You know, it's kind of when we were talking about Basil's saying he's not going to be extorted because he's got fucked me, my if I'm not willing at this point in my career to step into what I consider to be a Lynch mob atmosphere than who's going to do it. I mean, literally who else has got a career at this point. Or is has suffered through enough hate that could do it. Because if I. Can't do it. I I don't know of too many lawyers who can. And if that's where we've come to. That's a scary scary place. That's the I always say about North Korea. Because that's where guys just disappear where you gotta show trial. China's is famous for the show trials, and that's not the system. You know, may not be the future. But it's not the system I wanna live in. Well, also, it's sort of incumbent on the prosecution to prove their case and be effective like on one hand, you could look at his Mark arrogance. What do you do in getting this guy? Sprung from jail on the other hand, what isn't the prosecution doing? Why aren't they affectively presenting their case and make the other argument, you may have shot holes in many things I've done, but they've not affectively made a case for they made an accusation. They didn't effectively back it up, and I will tell you something else, and unless you've been through the criminal Justice system. You don't realize that this idea that somehow you can buy Justice understand something the people with unlimited resources are not the defense. I mean, the public defender in virtually every jurisdiction does not get the same amount of funds as the prosecution does the CJ criminal Justice panels in the federal system. They don't get anywhere near the money that the deal. Jay get so understand this is tilted Plainfield that you walk into if I go in there and just because I've been doing it for thirty six. And just because I made, you know, have a robinhood practice where I've got civil cases that will fund these criminal forays on my part that doesn't mean that I've even the plain field so to speak. I think this gestion with buying Justice and this'll be complex. Shoots a little hole in your premise. But it also be complementing. I think the notion and you're right. They have an unlimited budget. So what do you mean buying buying Justice? But I think the premise is that all the great legal minds went into private practice. And so you're sort of left with the sloppy seconds. Putting a case together. So all the guys Mark arrogance Johnny Cochran when all those the Clarence Darrow. They've moved into that world. And now, we're going to buy their great mind. Not so much about the mount of the check, but I get to use. This guy's great mind who's attracted to the private sector versus going in slogging it out with all the other Browns. It's interesting for a long time. I used to admire the believe it was the Manhattan DA's office because. Was twenty five years ago thirty years ago, when I was a newer lawyer used to compare that to the LA DA's office in the LA DA's office was not hiring into my mind. The best and the brightest. I won't belabor it. But the men Hatton DA's office going back thirty five forty years was it was kind of a feather in your cap. You could be at a tops fight school. You would compete. They would they would make it a showpiece kind of place to be and you can create that if you're a prosecutorial agency, you should make it a place where guys were the best minds are attracted to go. There. You're starting to see I think a little bit of that. Because you're seeing an elected prosecutorial agencies now where people who are not the usual suspects are running to be somebody to be a little bit more, not the usual suspect who runs a prosecutorial legions. I'll tease this last one the Muller report. I'm not sure when it's dropping any day now. So they say what do you suspect is in there? And is it going to if there isn't much in there as going to stop the people that already? Have had esteemed 'cause they're on a trajectory. And it used to be all about way to the report comes out, and there's going to be trouble. And there's not enough meat on that bone. Are they going to keep going you tell me after I tell you guys about teeter hanging? Upside down is great for your back. It's called inversion therapy. Your own body weight. Decompress is your spine. I have one of these things we've used it here. And I use it at home. Now. It is awesome teeter inversion table.

You're gonna love especially if your back hurts don't get on those drugs, man Katito. Get those don't get those fusions now never. So, you know, that's an interesting question. I was starting to answer it before. And I forget what it was that caused the before. But I watched this morning with great interest. Ken Starr, and Joe Lockhart Ken Starr was famously the independent counsel during whitewater, and Joe Lockhart was I think he was the communication spokesperson for the Clinton White House, and they were on this morning sitting across the table from each other. And it was fascinating TV because Ken Starr was talking about. Bob Muller being a the consummate professional Joe locker was telling Ken Starr, you're anything. But, but it was a very civilized back and forth. And and obviously because I was in Arkansas was thinking the same thing. And as you know, I've maintained all along this this this idea of an independent counsel and the idea of a special counsel to me, they're inherently flawed, and it's everything that is should not be the Krimmer. Justice system. And I said it then and I say now, and no because it's for precisely what you put your finger on the pulse of the idea that this reports gonna come out, and that's going to slow down. Anything's not gonna slow down a thing. In fact, all it's going to happen is I predict a right now anything that's in that report. And that report will get out the report because mechanically it goes to the attorney general in the attorney general can either release it or not release ascended the White House and get some kind of a rebuttal or a prologue written for what will happen is everything that's in that report will get over to the democratic controlled House Democratic controlled houses already started down the path of more investigations, you're gonna have nothing but investigations in the next two years leading up to the election, and whether or not it's collusion or whether or not it's any other. Adjunctive that's out of the southern district of New York, your that's where this is headed one thing. I did want to say because it was a great line is I saw somebody comparing Manafort getting sentenced to John Mitchell, getting sense Jonjo was the Watergate Nixon's attorney general and when John Mitchell came out of the courthouse after being sentenced by hanging maximum Johnson. Ricca the judge for to twenty four months and John Mitchell famously said well about his his he was married or separated from his wife, Margaret Mitchell, he said, well, twenty four months in prison chur beats being sentenced to the rest of my life with Margaret Mitchell and got into a car intro at is. Wow. That was that's that's good shit. That's a guy. That's a guy who centered and knows worries that even after he's coming out of the courtroom. Well, we'll know much more. Nah. Next week about Jesse small at that. That's going doubt the place to be you can check out my special not Taco Bell materials, my first standup special chassis to us as a wine.

Florida shatters single-day infection record with 15,300 new cases
"Good Morning I'm Alison Michael's with The Washington Post and this is the daily two Oh two from Monday July thirteenth. James out again this week, but I'll be here with the day's top headlines. Here are three stories that you need to know today. Number One. Florida on Sunday reported a record fifteen thousand three hundred new coronavirus cases that number is the most by any state in a single day and Oblique sign of the US failure to control the pandemic about six months after the first infection surfaced in the country. My colleagues Derek Hawkins Felicia Zone Mez and Laura McClure report that this staggering number was the result of both increase testing and widespread community transmission that's affected the state's population centers, and it's rural areas. The latest Spike Puts Florida at the center of the country's faltering pandemic response highlighting the. The ongoing struggle of state governments to gain an edge on the virus as the White House maintains its largely hands off approach the seven day average for daily new cases, nationwide is considered a more reliable indicator of the viruses impact than these single day totals that average has risen almost one hundred and sixty five percent over the past month from more than twenty thousand in the second week of June two more than fifty, four thousand at the end of last week, the country's daily death toll also increase last week after months of decline. In the last week alone Florida reported nearly seventy thousand new cases, the most of any state, an influx of coronavirus patients is straining the sunshine state's hospitals and coronavirus related deaths in the state or trending upward after leveling off in the late spring. Amid soaring numbers Florida. Governor Rhonda Santa's stuck to an aggressive reopening plan. Guests have returned to Walt Disneyworld Sat. Officials recently ordered schools to reopen five days a week in the new academic year, and the State is set to hold the Republican National Convention next month in Jacksonville. Number two. For months, Anthony Thoug- has played a lead role in America's corona virus response, he served as narrator, assessing risks, and issuing increasingly blunt warnings as the nation's response has gone badly Awry my colleagues Zmuda Buthe Lab Josh Dossey Lori McGinley report that the trump administration has street from the advice of many of its scientists and public experts, and now the White House has moved to sideline They've scuttled some of his plan. TV appearances largely kept him out of the Oval Office. Office for more than a month, even as corona virus infections surge in large swath of the country in recent days. Thao she has found himself directly in the president's crosshairs during a Fox News interview on Thursday with Sean Hannity, Trump said FAO chief quote is a nice man, but he's made a lot of mistakes and when Greta van Susteren asked trump last week about FAO cheese assessment that the country was not a good police. Trump said flatly quote I disagree with him. G No longer briefs Trump and last book to the President during the first week of June. That's according to a person with knowledge of trump's calendar for some administration officials developments like this have been assigned that their job was on the line, but trump cannot directly fire Ouchi Thoug- is a career civil servant with more than fifty years in government experience who enjoys? Enjoys strong bipartisan support in Congress in any case, the official who talked to the Post said, the president has no plans to get rid of Ouchi as for vouch himself, he's frustrated by the turmoil and the state of the outbreak, but friends say he has no plans to abandon his post, which includes a critical role in the development of a vaccine and treatments. A White House official released a statement saying that several White House. Officials are concerned about the number of times Dr Fauci has been wrong things and included a lengthy list of the scientists comments from early in the outbreak FAO chief supporters meanwhile acknowledged early mistakes, but attribute them to the challenges posed by a new and largely unknown pathogen. All of this underscores the deteriorating relationship between a scientist and a president who wants bonded over their shared New York City, routes and love of sports, but whose report has long since disintegrated over their differences on facemask policy on state, reopening strategies and on the use of anti malarial drugs to treat covid nineteen number three. All of this brings us to the state of the presidential race president. Trump's management of this summer's crises has triggered what Democrats detect as a tectonic shift in the political landscape democratic? Leaders are suddenly bullish about not only taking back the White House but also wresting control of the Senate and expanding their house majority. My colleagues Philip Rucker Rachel Baid and Sung men CAM report that trump incumbent advantages have steadily eroded since the spring, the president now trails presumptive Democratic nominee. Joe Biden in virtually every public poll nationally and in battleground states. Trump is also lagging. Lagging behind the former vice president in fundraising for May and June trump and his advisors insist that their campaigns internal data show the race as more competitive, and that he can gain momentum in the week ahead with a disciplined message and a brutal sustained assault on Biden's character ideology and his mental acuity yet trump has never shown much discipline and time and again this year he has stymied his campaigns best efforts with bouts of seeming self sabotage. On Friday, night, trump provoked critics new with his decision to commute, the prison sentence of longtime confidant Roger Stone. With the coronavirus pandemic, still raging across much of the country Biden enjoys a commanding position though his campaign advisers say nothing is yet secured, and they are careful not to take any seat for granted both Democratic and Republican operatives increasingly view trump as a drag on gop candidates in many Senate and House races especially in suburban areas where polling and focus group data suggests he has been bleeding support voters, disapproval of trump's handling of the pandemic and of the Racial Justice Movement, as measured in public surveys has buoy Democrats down the ballot. Some longshot Democratic contenders in Kentucky South Carolina and other Republican strongholds reported staggering fundraising halls, and reason days which party leader see as a sign that. that. They're playing. Fields could expand even further house speaker Nancy Pelosi said in an interview that if the election were held today, that's would pick up seats and expand their majority, but she cautioned that trump remains popular in a number of congressional districts in traditionally Republican. Areas that Democrats captured in the two thousand eighteen midterm elections Pelosi said she's worn. Fellow Democrats not to let their guard down Biden leads trump by nine percentage points among registered voters in a Washington. Post average of national polls conducted since mid June Biden also leads the incumbent, and in some cases, even outside the margin of error in recent polls in the battleground states of Arizona Florida Michigan. North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. and. That's the daily to you for Monday July thirteenth. Stay safe and thanks so much for listening.
Liz Cheney Voted to Impeach Trump. Now Shes Under Pressure from Her Own Party
"Brought to you by the so-fi daily podcast. Eighty percent of new year's resolutions fail by the second week of february if reaching financial independence is something. You're striving for in two thousand twenty one. Don't let your goals fall by the wayside. Listen to the s-o-f-i daily podcast weekday to keep informed and keep your financial resolutions search for so-fi wherever you get your podcasts. Liz cheney voted to impeach trump. Now she's under pressure from her own. Party beila sandra via the fight for the future of the republican party in the post trump era has arrived and one of the earliest proxy. Battles is playing out in the house of representatives republican conference chair. Liz cheney the third ranking republican in the house is facing pressure from some members of the conference following her vote to impeach now former president donald trump earlier this month for incitement of insurrection. Though it was the most bipartisan impeachment of president ever there was still only a handful of republicans who voted across party lines with democrats for impeachment. Cheney was the member with the highest name recognition and it's earned her the ire of some trump faithfuls who are now circulating a petition and calling for the wyoming lawmaker to resign from her spot in leadership representative matt rosendahl a freshman from montana and one of the lawmakers taking the lead in the effort won't say how many lawmakers have signed onto the petition so far his office says the timing is still quote up in the air on when hill. Submit the resolution. In the meantime the conference is brimming with drama with lines forming between those who would rather forget trump ever lead their party and those who think his brand of politics is its future is basically a right wing version of cancel. Culture says representative adam kensinger of a trump critic and one of the ten republicans to vote in favor of impeachment. If you don't like donald trump and you vote against donald trump. We're going to cancel you. We're going to say that you don't have a place in this party. It's no different house. Republican leadership didn't whip members to vote either way on impeachment leaving lawmakers to come to their own decision about whether the president incited a pro-trump mob to attack the us capitol on january sixth a day before the vote. Cheney put out a statement announcing she planned to vote against trump none of this would have happened without the president. The president could have immediately and forcefully intervened to stop the violence. He did not. There has never been a greater betrayal by a president of the united states. Have his office and his oath to the constitution. Cheney said in the statement. I will vote to impeach the president. The resolution tax that rosendahl office referred time to argues that democrats had used cheney's position quote as justification for a truncated impeachment process. It also notes that her position was out of line with most of the conference. Many republican lawmakers have been quick to fall on either side of the internal debate. With some coming to cheney's defense despite having themselves voted against impeachment. I don't think they ought to be punished. For voicing their opinion or casting their vote particularly when people were told ahead of time is a vote of conscience says representative. Tom cole. A senior member from. They're having to explain this back home to their own electors. I don't think we need to pile on to add additional penalties in washington dc while other leaders have also expressed support for cheney. Some of it has been tepid at best a spokesperson for leader. Kevin mccarthy said in an email to time that he quote does not support efforts to remove. Cheney is conference chair but in an interview on gray televisions. Full court press with greta. Van susteren mccarthy said. He thought she had to answer the conferences questions and registered concern that he hadn't been told of her decision ahead of time. Clearly you've heard some of our members who want to remove her. I'm not in that camp. Whip steve scalise said in a fox news appearance. This is an internal discussion that we're having and that we're going to work through kensinger said leadership hasn't been forceful enough in defending cheney kevin mccarthy can shut this the hell down right now but if they wanna go through with this and they want to have a discussion about leadership and they think that we should be on defense and liz should be on defense. We've got news for them. We're not the ones that should beyond defense kensinger tells time they should cheney's office declined an interview request for this article but in a fox news appearance on january twenty first. She said her vote came from a belief that her obligation was to the constitution. And to do what was right transcended politics. We have differences of opinion about a whole range of issues including about this one. I anticipate an confident. We will be united as a conference going forward. Cheney said the fallout hasn't been contained to washington back home in wyoming one high profile challenger anthony bouchard a state. Senator has already come forward to say. He'll primary cheney next year and one of trump's biggest defenders in the house. Florida representative matt gaetz travel to the wyoming state capital where he held a rally on thursday targeting. Cheney turn down for what hashtag removed. Cheney gates tweeted afterwards but there are prominent republicans from cheney's home state who have voiced their support for her as well. The house is going to make their own leadership decisions. But i support any says wyoming. Senator john barrosso as much as the two chambers of congress like to think of themselves as different bodies with different considerations perhaps the biggest short term take away from this still unfolding drama is the warning house. Republicans are sending to republicans in the senate which will next month begin the second impeachment trial of donald trump asked if he worried about the message. The house was sending two republican senators. Who might vote to convict. Trump barosso said senators would vote based on their own interpretation of the constitution. I don't see any correlation he says.

He and in fact when this position came on was reluctant to serve in this role short also tells Fox News Sunday. The briefing now reportedly said Russia is again interfering in. Us elections to help. President trump is just plain wrong. I think that there's not intelligence that said that the Russians are trying to help Donald Trump win election. We know the foreign governments trying interfere in elections to try to chaos Senator Chris Murphy appearing on CNN state of the Union says Russia never stopped interfering. They don't just get involved in elections. They are involved every single day and analysis of what they've been doing on twitter since two thousand sixteen has been pretty clear they're weighing in over and over again in support of right wing causes in support of Donald Trump's political agenda the intelligence briefing also reportedly said the Russians are trying to help Bernie Sanders national security adviser. Robert O'Brien speaking on. Abc's this week that's no surprise. He moved into Moscow. Our national security advisor should stay out of politics and that is a political statement. Senator Murphy on CNN when it comes to Russian election interference South Carolina representative. James Clyburn has doubt. I'll always believed that the Russians had been at this for a long time. I think that they've used some states. In order to practice their craft and I think South Carolina was one of them. Clyburn told full court press with Greta van Susteren election meddling remains a very serious problem. We need to be open about this with. Stop trying to hide the facts. We know the not just Russia but other countries have been middling how primaries as well and he says there's no reason for the Republican controlled Senate to be holding up the election. Security legislation already passed by the House. Solid gives consent so Mitch. Mcconnell is sal on this he must be consenting for it to take place Senator Schumer says. There's too much at stake to allow this to happen. That's the beginning of the end of this country. If we don't believe we have free fair elections that leave it up to the American people. In American candidates were gone Linda Kenyon Washington. There's a Democratic presidential debate tomorrow night in South Carolina. The PALMETTO state was supposed to Cement Joe Biden as front runner but Bernie Sanders continues his surge Bob Costantini reports Bernie Sanders fresh off Nevada caucus win hitting the upcoming states speaking softly to a boisterous crowd in San Antonio. Don't tell anybody Wanna get them nervous. We'll go to win the Democratic primary for president trump to the senator from Vermont. No I think it was a great win for Bernie Sanders. We'll see how it all turns out. They've got a lot of winning to do. I hope they fairly frankly. I don't care who I run against. I just hope they barely frankly.
