"Think this is hard to identify what exactly is going on? And how much of the trend this is. We're starting from a point of historic blows on the Ritz. What? Still a remarkably Safe, Big city and I don't know the need. The fact we're going in the wrong direction. We're going to continue their or indefinitely. I mean, these are very exceptional times. We've had massive police protest about the police. We have a huge hole has just been blown in the budget. We have this virus. The statewide is, you know, killed over 30,000 people, and so You want to have some gold to take a breath and put things in perspective? What's making it hard for me? It was to do then. Is the idea that we have leadership in City Hall and just in the political quest, And maybe this is because there's no credible Republicans here anymore. Any real Republican party that just seem willing to to ignore whistle cost most of this. So instead of having a sort of press from New York, er's, but we need to show that we have a handle on this now. And we need to stop the about this distressing friends. They really seem to be scrambling. I have one more thing that the NYPD commissioner just announced that Basically, it's taking away the Saturday Sunday weekends. Most of the patrol officers still have those most officers know that work either sad they were Sunday. But this is an indicator that with this budget crunch, even his other agencies are cutting down on the NYPD has been mostly held harmless from your cuts there, not being able to pay overtime the same way. But they're also dealing with with tricking resources in the midst of all these political pressures and the mist this wise and shooting And maybe you know these these new reform laws and his new reformed years that they don't quite know. What buttons to press for what moves to execute to. Ah, get a handle on things. So we're a long way from the seventies, the eighties more than ideas, but But what we've lost Maybe a decade of declining numbers now and in fact, continues, we could be in a really scary place, and I'm not sure anyone knows. What the next move is. That's not that I think almost like Trump talking about the virus, and one day a miracle will happen, and we'll be done with this. People are hoping there's some sort of natural counter question. Then they will be It's not clear what started this. But what may well not be either, and I don't want leaders just depending on that.

"For you. That's that's. That's an honorable thing to do. There's a story out of the hill. And I'm curious did you see these psychologists who marched through New York to call Trump's removal, or did you did you did you sit curbside? I did not see it. This story. Yeah. So group of psychologists and mental health professionals on Saturday, March New York calling for President Trump to be removed from from office, including more than one hundred psychologists and mental health professionals Pershing for him to be ousted from his post. One Harry Siegel, a Cornell University psychologists says we can we can. Yeah. I knew that was going to hit you Ron we could we could sense the power of Trump's underlying fear that he is worthless. And weak by how intensely he resists and retaliated against any criticism. So clearly just by watching him on TV. They can they can make this assessment. We'll has he lost his license. Yes, Cornell, doctor, I don't I don't believe. So because I don't understand how any of that is ethical. How is it ethical for doctors who have examined or? Redid this patients in this case, Donald Trump. Decide should no longer have his job. I mean where else would that? Complete breach. I heard on math to do it somehow..

"The you are creating really terrible. Alternatives in other is actually a commonsense place where we're not talking about how colleges educate like their sexual so claims and like weird stuff that happens with drunk people. And there is actually like a boring American medium where where we all get how this stuff is supposed to work. And if every confirmation and understand this, a big one in this really changes, the balance of the court is weaponized. That's a huge problem. If we get to all these big things like gay marriage, which I am about, you know. Seven hundred percent four in New York did exactly the right way. Seven hundred. I it's. It's just outrageous to me that if there's a contract it that involves like whether you can take care of your children, a see your spouse when they're dying, inherit things the we're going to be like, you know, God gives you this, but not you this. Fuck you that that that's a bomb inaudible to me like really disgusting. Can I can I. Inventing. That's the path we're going to see this court now. I'm not so sure. You're right. And I think you're right, but I do leave open the window of possibilities. If it was if it was if it was if it was granted by the court will be taken away by this is true. I'm I'm a little skeptical that we'll see a an ideological retrenchment of that sort. He also have to see you even that five, four of those other for Justice. That's exactly right. The conservative Justice Roberts like, don't people have heart attack. I want to think things happen. I wanna I wanna push pushback. Well, I mean, Donald Trump hasn't really made the crusading against gay marriage, a critical issue of his. But let me nice good though. Let me try to let me try to to push you a little bit on this, and I don't want to to unfurl a long discussion about the truthfulness of the four testimony versus cabinet testimony because my own perspective is, I mean they both seem pretty believable and I don't know how to adjudicate this and I pretty much stopped there. If things are a bit more complicated if it matters that she doesn't remember how she got home or whatever else, and one finds themselves unsure, isn't it the case? Because you mentioned this false choice. Isn't it the case that ev- an future nomination. One only need have some sort of allegation about past misconduct that doesn't really have to be proven that doesn't have to be thoroughly investigated in order for it to de rail, your nominee and I'm not taking. I'm not striking out a position here at all. I'm just saying that I don't know if that is necessarily a good thing and the you think it is. I had this professor who sang Nazi youth songs all the time because he was like fourteen, I think when the war ended and he was actually course of propaganda was brilliant guy. These would like the songs of his youth and where he thought things were going, you will them, and he's saying, so it'd be a weird dude whole number with cast. Is he gypsy German yet? Oh, yes. Yes, yes, Canadian or something. The sons of his favorite propaganda thing involved like this. This kid is sort of orphaned in his dad's beanie, his mom, and they're all shitty people in needs a surrogate family, and the communists are like here, you know, you wanna have you wanna drink this awesome wind, you wanna have sex with this beautiful girl doing a, we like a wonderful and dissolute life and then the Nazis. Like you want to go on like long and arduous marches while singing. The song is like, this is the life for me, and I'm like, this kid something wrong. You had me drinking. There was a connection here. We know this is great. I don't know what the so so. So I think that there's going to be at some point because the tech companies are evil, and because our government is evil and people would power information just are, you know, believe in human nature. So I don't. I don't trust them right that there's going to be like a whole weird lost generation of people who things they thought they were doing in relative privacy on their Email accounts, looking at the internet and like, I don't know, like midget dolphin a pornography or whatnot, the they're going to be cut off from public life..

"He mentioned, he mentioned that he caveated caveated it, but it is not. Harry's actually referencing the original study here, but he didn't share it because that is in his peas. In the piece he says, which I think is actually a reasonable thing to say is that people think this stuff is bananas and gone too far and they're also not racist. I mean, that seems to track fine with me. I didn't think there's any overlap with the hating political records and being specifically hate speech to the, they say, in the study like eighty percent. But I think there's a problem with hate speech which, again is a definitional thing is like, is it people yelling at each other on Twitter? Or is it people saying, you know racial slurs or whatever it might be, but I don't think it necessarily means that there's some sort of disconnect here. So they've got this group in the middle of the politically disengaged, which is point six percent of the country and the crazy some twenty-five. And they're like, maybe they're the answer. Let's hope they're the answer. Sure. People don't this nonsense shit the good and they're healthy. You need. Some of them might do your head. It's record turnout when like Dinkins was running again. Giuliani twice and his like, oh, man is everything about to explode and where we all going to die. Yeah, right. So I mean, that's how you get epic civic participation. I think that the these disengage people who, by the way, are more likely to be black and Latino to to have lower incomes to be in the middle of the country and not to have a passed a college education, right? Like I'm not sure that the radically engaging them is going to be like they're all still in the center. We just on the chart or any of that, I think are very likely to get pulled in and tribal is like everyone who already is engaged, but travel has to wear grabs me. Is he saying you say the center, but if the if the notion is that the the center is actually pretty fast and that there's a lot of agreement we, why would they go to the pulse way? Are they send. Yeah. Centric politically centrist or they just homeless homeless? Yeah, there's twenty six percents. Did the adrift in disinterested. Yeah. I mean, it's almost like floating above it. Yeah, rather than like, you know, Lee, Harry's points, right? I mean, if people like that engage in politics wh what's to prevent them, especially in this climate now from not falling on the sort of whether it's the black lives matter side. They're busy. He'll particular reason to suspect that they that they will get in. Of course, they didn't get involved during the record. Turnouts with respect to Barack Obama. I mean, we've always had a healthy percentage of Americans who simply do not participate..

"It's not like it was from heritage or something, but I was reading did have an incentive to convince us that we have more in common. Correct? Yeah. Yeah. I'm just surprised that was that. That that they would try to convince us with, but no tracks a kind of and his no science whatsoever. But it's sort of tracks with what my experiences have been in the past four or five years, especially when all of this stuff is gone around the bend. And just two, three, four people that have been texting with today who are not political people, I think would probably vote for Bernie or whoever the democratic candidate was. They find Ted Cruz repulsive. You You know. know, normal sort of New York type people, and they are like, well, yeah, of course this and we've people have been batting this this story around in every day. I get a link from one of these people who, again aren't political people, and it's usually in publications that either worked for have worked for of like some insane headline like, what is wrong with you guys? Like how fucking out of touch or you like you're another thing about, you know, a trans, this, and that this and it's like you guys. I m so to me, like you guys have done more trans stories than there are transpeople and the people just don't get it and they're just it's, it's not a political thing at all. It's it's sort of. I don't think Donald Trump created the idea that we're overrun by political correctness. He definitely exploited it way that nobody else had ever thought about because they were too frayed to actually do it. Donald Trump is a suicide bomber does not care. You know, I always said to journalists. You complain about your salary, you if you have no, no care about what other people think. If you can be rich, you can be an Coulter. You could be on TV every day. If I just said the things that and culture set, right? Or if I just said the things that Glenn Beck said or whatever, it's like Donald Trump did that in a political for INA presidential race. He like people are too afraid to say like, oh, I don't want to step in and say the wrong thing about race, class, gender, class, race, gender, sexuality, etcetera. And this is the first guy who could have given shit what you thought about it. And actually that was if you thought something terrible about it, that was to his advantage. So I mean, this tracks with, you know what I assumed. I think the numbers strike me as a little high, but but eighty percent right? Crazy monk is thirsty here and he's cherry picking, right? So eighty two percent eighty percent of Americans told this survey of the professional moderates the political correctness is initially the only group that disagrees the hardcore progressives where small group there eighty percent of the country. Whereas the crazy conservatives is this has it is like twenty four percent of the country, right? So eighty percent political correctness, band eighty two percent hate speech problem. Oh, you gotta read Harry. Got gotta read a piece though. He included that in this. Did he did?.

"I'm sorry, it's just not how it works. Michael, you convince me I was totally wrong before it. That's insane. Trump got so much earned media and there were all of these fascinating important stories at once the times mentions a passing and his twenty seven billion word investigations, right? Like as Wayne Barrett in O'Brien recorded, bear the there was so much actual news in digging to do and just like looking at entertaining guy. Yeah. Well, what's he going to say next was not a good or healthy thing, and it now unbalanced. No one took him seriously. There was never the belief that he could win. That's reason why I look. It could be a bridge to the story of the Yasha Munster anyway, is that yet there is nothing more bubble oriented than seeing these people say that there's no way he could win. I tell you what I was the same person, and I will be totally honest and say that that I was living in that same universe. And I've learned a lot since then, and I'm glad that I had to go back and sort of, you know, checked by premises. And see what see what I was wrong about. But yeah, I mean, it's also the pump and that too. Is that let's not take this guy seriously because nobody could possibly vote for this bozo and then the number of conversations I have within the next day. Two days after the election, probably half of which I took part in disaster. How could sixty million people be so stupid? Sure. And that was that was wrong. That was stupid. That was silly and Donald Trump already had enough fame beforehand. I mean, we didn't have to. I mean, he had Brenton's. I mean, it was number one show in America for many years. Right? I listen, I think so. It was definitely the number one reality show it overtook survivor in the mid two. Thousands. Yeah, but it was a very popular show. Right? It was very popular. He was huge. I mean, he he, he was before the apprentice, but he he, he had hit such a, you know, he had ebbed terribly in ninety s? He was doing McDonald's commercials to stay afloat, but the apprentice. Absolutely, yes. Brian to brand New Yorkers. There's always saying, I'm sure he was like peripherally in the, you know, the whole national consciousness, but nothing like the apprentice and like the the apprentice is the reason we have Donald Trump as the president of United States. Now, had you not picked himself up in that kind of celebrity way? I mean, it had he made a couple of clever which he's incapable of doing clever real estate deals and got back on top and did not have a television show. I don't. I don't think he would be president is a very dear friend of mine who I saw last weekend last weekend was the sound guy on the apprentice for all, but nine seasons or whatever they did. And it's really funny because he has eleven twelve, and he has some very funny stories about the Donald and when he was getting himself back on the n. word tip I, I can't. I can't. Does doesn't have wants to talk to him. I will say this. I cannot. Okay. I'll just say toe. Tom Arnold has definitely got in touch with them. Many look. He has. He's not responding. Because he doesn't want to get out there whatever. It's because it's fucking Tom Arnold here because like you know, if you're going to be like going to blow up this water k. eight Watergate case, let's get nipsy Russell. Actually, he was talented owning celery. Sorry, popped into my head. Well, you mentioned went ahead and it's this piece by Yasha monk and the title of this piece. It was in the Atlantic. Sorry. Yeah.

"I wouldn't know. Okay. I'm going to get back to it because I don't want to get mad at me that we were drinking the one I'm going to drink all the clubs drink, and the question is open. It's you guys is that there is. I think Harry's point is the right one of that. You know, I thought it was so amazing. What politico did this story about these Russian fake stories on on Facebook and they just gallery and you can still see this. It was like twenty thirty stories that we're in is amazing because at the very small of the bond as the number of people who shared them in some of them are like five hundred two hundred hundred times. Basically nobody. Yeah, and it's like, whoa, what's going on here? Because the question I wonder about the thing that I wonder about is that it allows. I mean the idea of fake news which now has become something that is expertly brilliantly taken over by Donald Trump. People forget that it was Hillary Clinton that came out right after the election said, fake news. It is of course. Which I think we've talked about this way to me talk Michaud. What's so? Well, it's it's just it's the angles stuff. It's just false concert. If only they had not been screwed up by the capitalist press, they would've voted for us. That's why we lost fake news. I wasn't a bad candidate, right? Yeah. So the other thing that you see often now is this the people, the rise of the fact checkers, right in this idea that if only we had people Harry's got his hands on. Like a cartoon character from Hanna, Barbera hands on his head, pulling his era, looks like captain caveman, but what's wrong with fact, checkers moynahan we need the truth. That's how I'm gonna. You know what I'm going to because of Harry's react to that physical body reaction. I'm going to put I give the floor to to respond to these hands about this idea of fact, jealous while you hate the truth. Wrote should keep talking about his hair. Looks like he's looking for something else computer. What's what's worse fact checkers or explainers. Well, bone both are condescending. Yeah. And if only people could read the truth that you know that somebody somebody Glenn Kessler puts then they'd be set on the right path. Donald Trump wrote a piece today as we're talking, which is Wednesday the day for USA today than paper that did the infographics and whatnot. Stuff right in e cetera. The Democrats want Medicare for all next thing. You know, we're going to be Venezuela, everything's going to be terrible. You know, vote vote Republicans too much is at stake. Most important election of our wet maga-. So pretty much usual bullshit. From the president. There were about a hundred Gillian hot takes numerous calls like they didn't fact check this president of the United States met political assertions, oh my God. It kills me and you know what the thing is, the motherfuckers who are doing that, and the people are very upset with the New York Times and Maggie Haberman all this stuff, right? I love them through the west people, wept, who believe in the power of the press the ones that USA. Today's insufficient fact checking is why Donald Trump is like God bless her as a car carrying member of the press. Like I if only you're not since I'm standing here, the gates Bernard. Keeper just outside of the cold, shivering and naked and you're, you're a powerful man, Harry. Why are you doing. Thank you. Give me one thing. Strength you'd dummies can can you, but I want you.

I don't know if it's for Harry, you Harry it because he's, he's, he's very good at the Rams. But I mean.

"I also think that there has been no shortage of nonsense historically, and that nonsense has been transmitted in various ways. And even to the extent that those changed film sort of animates a belief amongst some particular subset of the population, the protocols of the elders of Zion or something that brave to catch fire amongst a certain group of people. I'm not certain that either of those things on their own animated, a movement so much as they got grafted into something else into the extent they became they, the come particularly dangerous. It's only when they're weaponized by our politics and quite frankly with the loose change stuff. It seems like something that's just kind of grafted in to the broader to the broader politics rather than something that on its own is actually able to elevate some particular movement of disaffected Americans who. Want to do something bad or overturned the government? I don't. I don't give that much credit to Alex Jones for the current moment. If nothing new under the sun. Right.

There's fears and there's there's a sense of safety and what people are willing to exchange for that and out of their sense of decency, they're, they're conspiracies the, there's often a, a wealthy Jewish financier, ideally, in international one in part because you're saying there really is one of the usually plenty.

And subjected? No. Sorry, I'm saying, I'm saying that the racists who think those sorts of things need some ghost in the machine or mechanism to explain how these the these people were inferior are a threat, and a threat is a mob often by the way, and very handy way to do that is to have like a nudity sex group of what would use the Jews as who then are pulling the strings and went to like tamper with, you know, like the actual white blood stream and are also threat to because you can't visually identify the weather most. So the stuff? Yeah. I question that I love the new stuff gets very ugly. It never entirely goes away. So my wife is from California's, the Trump thing was rising. She was just very annoying with every in talking about the Nazi stuff not because of the what's his face rule. But usually I, there are actual Nazis there all the time. Pennsylvania, and it's not all my God. The Nazis are gonna rise up. Take everything else over Trump is a Nazi, but like. The idea that people are just discovering all the shit that was already there was absurd. And finally, after the election, speaking of the technology stuff watching BuzzFeed and other places be like, do fake metrics about fake news like twenty five million people shared the I.

We're our clicks, magical clicks, and you don't actually know what any of these numbers mean? What the point of this stuff isn't. It allows for magic making and conspiracy.

"It's been there depending on how you count since Clinton's impeachment since Bush v gore been Awo since Ohio in two thousand four. Since since the, you know the birther questions that Trump is pushing in twenty twelve. So you can skip two thousand eight hundred and then the Russia probe and the popu majority and everything else. So we haven't had a entirely accepted with gentlemen president except for like eight of the last twenty years at this point. So this is pretty new and it's a new standard, eight years, the Obama years I give Obama the first four years. Yeah, and I give Bush the second term. Yeah, if I'm counting, but by the time you get second term Clinton and the way in. Trinh plays out a Bush v gore for two thousand. What about Reagan? Reagan? Had some controversies. Reagan Brigham forty, nine states wanted no one thought he hasn't president and even Clinton got a majority because of parole running twice. So the Republicans never accepted him as a legitimate president. And then Gingrich you know, who was like a, you know, like McConnell's just going to do stuff like is like, I, I'm opening up this Pandora's box, fuck it.

Jay, especially, yeah. And lastly, vague sense of apocalypse separate from the elections and and and Soros Rudy anti Christ, right? The lake asteroid, maybe as coming or tech or whatever. So so maybe there isn't that long term game to think about that I think is really starting to infect people's thinking. And I think our politics are really screwed up and worse for all this. And then finally in the west, you have like this revisionist history in which everything that happened in the nineteen nineties was actually, you know, the the, the, the Democrats and like new Republic crowd. They were also fascist and it gets denuded of all context of the people writing this stuff. No, some of the context and they know why the crime Bill was popular and that the crime was very high even if it started to go down. Yeah, you see that a lot in the nineties of of liberals now going back and revising their positions. Then I mean if Hillary Manhattan Iglesias writing that Bill Clinton should've been impeached because because he was the sex criminal, the new episode of. That podcasts low burn, which was just released that I was listening to it this morning, which is pretty good. I think I've said this before the previous one, I didn't like it all the Nixon one. I think it was was pretty bad actually, but this one is quite good. And today, like the one that just released was about wanting to broaddrick in about how it was the only mention of her was Jane Doe number five, as a footnote, a sub footnote in the star report, and he didn't think it was. It was his re-met to to talk to one Juanita broaddrick who had accused Bill Clinton of raping her in now. I mean this episode was everyone like, yeah, well, then we take it seriously now because now we now we believe women we didn't then. And so you know to see Madda glasses throwing his lot in with Ambrose Evans Pritchard and the people of the scape conspiracy. I mean, he was the member of the Richardson mills gave conspiracy, and the Pittsburgh Tribune review or whoever was in Arkansas project and all this madness and main airport, and Clinton chronicles, and imagine if something like the Clinton chronicles, which is. Videotape that you could buy on television for twenty nine bucks or nineteen bucks that was produced by Jerry Falwell. I think imagine if you had your say Clinton murder? No, it was. It was an hour and a half of the Clinton death list. I mean, that was the technology. Then it was like you to buy VHS Ted..

"It's like, I don't know if I don't think Giuliani isn't it. I think he's just doing the kind of Trump thing that people do. I have though meta love to Semites that are really obsessive, but I think what I'm needing Rothschild's of, I think what I'm getting at is there is there is a sensibility about the extreme particular unique danger of the one side, and I do think that there is something to be missed if we're not thoroughly acknowledging the degree to which there is a fundamental tactic at work here, and it is, and the distancing of this. Tick your movement from something that is in fact, grassroots and that is genuine. And that represents real sincere outrage on the part of the people that are actually showing up in the streets. And there can be no doubt that there are lots of Americans who are very distraught and worked up all over all of this. The other part of this, though, the degree to which this is something that is going to be durable. This all what is the Cavanaugh the Cavanaugh upset the depth of the division that exists right now if there isn't like a decisive Victor, like if it's a split decision in the in the midterms, whether like one party gets the house, one party gets the Senate. I do think that this has a better shot of lasting if it's if it's more if it's more decisive, if the Democrats are route or the Republicans hold ground, I think that this kind of thing caters out into just the basic red blue culture war stuff. But I think I think it's wrong to not you to the people suggest that it was a bucolic period of calm. And peace, and then all of a sudden this kind of propped up. I mean, it is definitely worse than it's been in a long time and it's people are more exercise on either side. I would say that from two thousand eight. Two thousand sixteen Democrats were not as exercise because they control the levers of power or executive branch, and we're doing things that they wanted to be done. You know, Macaire, etc. In on the other side, you had Republicans and conservatives heavy breathing, and then they were the mop showing up to the mob. And then then the Democrats and liberals at the same thing after, but they were sharing his town halls and they were, you know, shutting people down and they were a number of these damn things. I went to the mall where people are holding up. You know, I'm ready to having an argument, the guy who had signed, it's at Joe McCarthy was right. I bet one It was was like. like, you know, there are a few things, but I actually asked at that guys. Do you think what Eisenhower was a communist? And he said, excuse me. Do you realize that was forget it. But I think that now the difference now is that it's coming on both sides because you know, look, the Obama administration and people in the administration believe themselves to be under siege by these people, but they thought it was basically in there right about this basically toothless in some ways. Fox News is a problem. You know, Dana Millbank scan rate as dumb book about Glenn Beck. Glenn Beck feels bad about it. Later his she gets fired from FOX. All this stuff is rather predictable. Now, it's a different thing that everybody is amped up letting in the Bush years. It was the same thing with liberals were super amped up and remember all the Bush as Hitler placards that you would see all over the place. They legitimate president illegitimate presidency, lost in two thousand and stole. Far according to Rolling Stone, the people writing about that, like RFK junior writing, things like that, I think. And you know, I mean, he was always there, but I think the kind of bipartisan madness is is now is different. Stop stop there. It wasn't always there..

"I think his position shifted in a lot of ways. He's now somebody's had a lot of money and been around power for a long time without having to play it anywhere audience, any enjoys that. And honestly, he wakes being smarter and better than the right thinking people. I don't know if he is, is it right now, but I know that that the ways he's acting and the guy is drinking and and I think drinking too much or not accidental, and they're not because he's foolish or he doesn't get it. And this goes back to the the mobs, if you will. I understand people being very upset with the way the cavenaugh thing played out. I understand the argument that like don't bother to worry about optics because you know FOX and these guys are gonna smear you no matter what you do at the same time. I think that the optics of street protests going back to twenty sixteen and this year have been. Devastatingly bad for Democrats in the you have all sorts of people could be brought into sympathy and don't really like young people who look really upset, you know, banging on the supreme court doors or whatever ridiculous you know, I during the hearings. Yup, sure. Yup. And so you have this, these people, pipe cleaner arms trying to wrench the doors, open fingers. Terrified. It's not like a shed. They always look like the original Lutherans banging on the door. Like very, very weak arms. I'm always always the guy in the room who does this anyways. So. Yeah, I do. I do wonder about Elma God. It's outside money. It's billionaires getting their way these, they're, these aren't genuine sentiments. It's not genuine protests that's can. Then it's ginned up. Both sides have their boogeyman and I don't know if you're going to use hyperbolic sensational sensationalist rhetoric. Does Rudy Giuliani referred to him as the anti Christ? Because he is suggesting. Hey, jewish. Espec- saying it because he thinks a particular audience is going to think chew ish. He does. I is a Catholic. It usually ends. We can only we can only we can only yes, anti Christ is in the worst thing worse in subsistence ational over the bags. It's not ignorant of. I had no idea what his motivation was in that moment. What I think is interesting is there is a sort of there is an absurd extremist tone to all of the rhetoric around this kind of stuff. There is however, with this particular charge, the added bonus of when you say it, they get to say that you are an anti Semite whether or not you are that charge is ubiquitous. And even in the context where you're just sending out a stupid tweet, why they are in fact an anti cars and you knew you knew, I think of. Of Guiliani thing. There are a lot of bands coming out of England in nineteen sixty three of the Senate just like the Beatles. Blockers and bands like this. I've noticed this all these people that hang around Trump not only tweet like Trump. They actually send emails like Trump. I got two rejections, very very, I'll show you one that I got this week. From people in administration, positions in both of them were written like Donald Trump, you're an idiot, you're fake news. You're one of them. I'll saying because it's as is the ridiculous buffoon. Sebastian, Gorka. That's one, but the other one was a little. It was even it was a higher up being in prison that who wrote and who's a smart person who wrote like, you know, basically, fuck you, your fake news. You do this bullshit. JV stuff. Nobody cares. Nobody watches your show literally. And it's so funny like the show that I was asking for was a show that has two million viewers every week, and it's exactly the same as the failing New York Times, which is incredibly successful, bad move Trump Trump. from facts the anti-crisis the same thing. It's like they're not think well, is that a reasonable thing to say it's it's really that sort of that kind of cadence and that kind of tenor of tweeting an Email emailing. So crazy to me because this is like the third time I've gotten this. If like this, I'm lifting my finger up by the way. I just realized that I was on radio, and yeah, saying like, fuck you it and they do it in this way..

"It's a very, very funny funny little thing and both of them I desperately want to interview them because it just seemed like that's lot of that stuff on EBay is knock off. Knock off for fifteen bucks, very hard to do. Well. We should get into it because there's there's some stuff going on is this week. I think we're going to wrap up our Cavanaugh trilogy talking. Little bit about the fallout from the confirmation hearing, but I think it also has intersections with a number of other things that are going on. I mean, there's the me too anniversary that's taking place right now, and there is this broader conversation. The the cavenaugh thing, obviously has broad implications clearly went respect to the supreme court. It seems the only thing people are interested in talking about is this in connection with Roe versus Wade on the abortion decision and the implications for that. A little bit about whether a president you know, has to, you know, answer a subpoena. There's the kept cabinet cameras position. That's a far less significant piece of the media narrative. The dominant narrative in the thing that has protesters out in the streets, the notion of an attack on women. Well, there's some, there's some other supple get into, but maybe we start with the cavenaugh stuff clearly I don't want to rehash all things Cavanaugh to again this conversation we've we've been down this road quite a bit, although Harry, you weren't able to participate in some of those conversations. And I, I would be interested in your your perspectives broadly, but with respect to the response to the cavenaugh confirmation, it's been pretty damn tense. There were the protests that took place immediately after the scenes of people in the street, sort of pounding on doors as the confirmation was taking as the confirmation was taking place and he's being sworn in, but beyond that, this sort of political. Narrative that's emerged is Donald Trump in many other conservatives talking about the threat of mob rule by Democrats and decrying the protesters for being source backed a wonder about that narrative and also the emergent counter narrative on the other side. And I think it's probably best embodied by something that Hillary Clinton said in a video where she referred to the difficulty of being civil in a circumstance where a political party is trying to destroy everything that you stand for. I think that is a direct quote, but it says, remember when she was a Trump's wedding and then others inaugural. At the time at the time he she didn't know that he was trying to destroy everything that she stood for. So gentlemen, I say, all of that to open the door to this conversation, we've clearly had a number of discussions about the state of the polity and how bad things are. I don't know if anyone's perspective on things as changed at this point. Clearly, however, for the for the midterms, the state the table has been set and for conservatives and progressives or Democrats and Republicans. Anyways, the sensibility is, yeah, this is World War five thousand this again for the eighteenth thousandth time is the Muslim ordinal, election of your life, go out and vote because this to to quote someone from podcast that I won't name. This might be the very last election you ever have a chance to vote in. Yeah, I don't think that's going to have. Yeah. On the on the Soros thing, which I've followed with kind of keen interest rates is that the one thing that you will notice how it is differentiated from he, the coke brothers conspiracies is that it is global, and when I was in Europe last week last month in various countries with alright people, I did not have a single conversation in this will be in the piece that we're doing in which George Soros who was not mentioned every single time. Obviously the Hungarians have some kind of caused dimension George Soros because he is of Hungarian extraction when you hear it in Italy that these people are being funded by George Soros that when I was in Sweden, it was a lot of George Soros conversation when I was at the cavenaugh in front of the supreme court, the protesters and the counter protesters had big Sora signs saying, I have a photograph, I'll post a of people speaking on. On on in Kavanagh's defense and being being framed by two big signs that have, you know, fuck Soros, kind of things on them..

Don't know if that is vile auction or if our our listener bought the banks, he painting the self destruct. These bottles. What I have said on the show many times before and it has been successful only on one occasion is that while I do appreciate the unbelievably to the bottles of wine, if you have private collection with Saudis? I do also take van MO. You know, it's fine. I've, I've happy Harry little agitated, came up from his computer a muppet. Harry has thoughts real quick. While we're talking about southern bees.

I encouraged listeners to look up the kale f the copyright your front. Exactly. Yeah. So so these are these techno weirdo are geniuses who I put out a fucking book about how to have a number one hit song in England, and they did, and then produce to number one hit songs based on this stupid fucking book. Calif is gonna rock. You. Aha, ancients of MU. Yeah, so stay with me. But the point here. These mother fuckers earned a million. It's not. We don't know if actually happens. There is video claiming it might expect. Yes. They also took a million pounds framed it solely for half a million pounds. His art and we saw it. We're taking out and w right. Amazing. I think the banks and these guys are sort of sort of riding on the coattails of old. Awesome. Shit that's now somewhat forgotten. So I went to, I love great trolls like that. And I, I have a t shirt that I got last week, and it was really funny to watch the reaction to it is that I just got it because I thought it was such a brilliant, hilarious troll, and it was a dull chain and Gabbana the fashion house were protested by people on Instagram, and they got a hashtag trending boycott Dolgin Cabana. 'cause they were dressing Melania Trump in also they're both gay and and one of them said, yeah, don't care about gay marriage. I think it's dumb or like, yeah, gave people shouldn't adopt kids. They were just like being dull, jangle monitor, being chicks getting attention. And so this hashtag starts trembling in which is boycott diligent in Gabon. What they do is they end up making a limited run of t shirts selling for three hundred and fifty dollars a piece that just say boycott told Coban. So I have one and I wore at the other. It's a bootleg version by. Not cost me thirty dollars and I was walking through in Brooklyn and people like looking at me. So I went to this place called Walter place, very nice restaurant, and the waiter comes over. I think a gay man. By the way it is relevant. I would say any came relooked looked at me. He's like nice t-shirt in. I was like, I don't think he knows that. It's that I don't think he knows what it is, but he just likes the idea of boycotting things so. So I thought that was a great, very similar troll like to actually make money off of this and get three hundred, four hundred t shirts. You can buy them on EBay now by the way for six hundred dollars, seven hundred dollars. Is that right? Yeah, yeah. Yeah, they're great..

It's an action movie rate goes through regular, bad action movie moments, but then Dennis Rodman's in who is as good in actor as I am. I. It was a basketball player. So so so there's like this action movie happening. Dennis Rodman just turns it look straight at the camera in his leg. You miss your free throw and then the movie resumes, it just keeps going on it. It's actually glorious can meet those moments. The only thing I remember was that there's a moment in the movie and it's a really tremendous mention that you should see this. It's sort of like criterion collection were they and there's a moment where in some bad trick of sort of mirrors, they meet each other to the to John Claude van Damme's and the guy says, oh, there's a woman or and says, I thought that was you.

I didn't recognize straightaway and I just, I ignored it completely weeks. Go by, and I get a message from someone saying, hey, did you get the thing I left you at your office? I left some some beverages for you guys, and eventually I am able to obtain this and it is these three bottles of wine. These wonderful almost certainly very expensive. And of course we did actually Google to see exactly how much you spent these barely making some dough, but we were, we were blessed by by a fan who sent us. Let me say, listener, I don't want to. I don't want to suppose that you're a fan, but I've went ahead and you to let her. Fellas delivering very expensive bottles of wine. He doesn't hate us. You could be some stations. I shouldn't say he by the way because there's a co-signed letter, although there was some uncertainty about whether or not this is.
