They want you to at the active getting fossilized bangs out of brook. That's encapsulated them. For tens of millions of years as less brushing brushing and more buzzy and really and well bloody noisy. This start is really fun every now and again. That is paleontologist. Ben francis shelley. And we'll get back to those tools. Sick pre pandemic into the basement of the melvin museum. To show me just how. Hey and his colleagues removed fossils embedded in rock the barnes hayes working on lunchtime souls instead there remains of ancient wiles and dolphins and when they died millions of a guy they body sank to the sea floor and covered in soft mud and sediment over time that sediment hardened into limestone which these days form. The cliffs along victoria coast ben in others gone regular expeditions to say what fresh fossils have been exposed by the wind and waves. When you get a specimen in an it's mostly embedded in rock. It's been there for twenty. Five million years held healthy. Get it out the first step that you have to do before anything else. As you have to. Cut the exposed boeing. That's at the surface with a lot of different clues that can cure the action specimen hot as well. We tend to use something known as paranoid seventy two. It's polymer resin and when we add it with acetone the base of about three percent. What it does is. It hardens the surrounding bone. So we can take back and then we can be certain.

US House Passes Bill to Make Washington, DC, the 51st State
"For the second time in history the house passed legislation. That would make washington. Dc a state. Bill passed along party lines. And the partisan interests here very clear right statehood for dc would mean at least in the short term probably adding two democratic senators. Of course democrats have been very obvious. Interest in making that happen and republicans are dead set on opposing it but democrats also have a very basic persuasive argument here about representation. I mean there's seven. Hundred thousand of our fellow. Americans who live in dc and have no voting representatives in congress. House senate meaning. They have a delegate they can elect to congress. That person does not actually get to vote on anything. Republicans will they don't really have any good arguments against it as you can see whenever they come out to defend their position with dc statehood. Dc wouldn't even qualify as a singular congressional district. And here they are. They want the power and the authority of being an entire state in the united states. Now that's a little bit of a tough sell as an argument to make while standing right next to congresswoman liz cheney representative for wyoming single at large district representing a hundred thousand fewer people than the population of dc. Steve scalise louisiana. who wants famously likened himself to former. Kkk leader calling himself. David duke with the baggage. Scalise sounding this racist dog whistle about the crime. Rate in dc quote. Why should the district of columbia be granted statehood when it can't even perform basic mental duties like protecting its residents from criminals.
"hayes" Discussed on All In with Chris Hayes
"Because it now under the guise of setting a standardized timeline makes optional for counties that may be a may not want to see expanded access to the right to vote. They can now limit their hours instead of those ours being seventy to seven. They've now from nine to five which may have effect on voters who cannot during business hours on during early voting. It eliminates the the idea. I get the idea. Okay that's enough you asked sir. The georgia laws is one example of the aggressively for lack of a better word anti-democratic laws being pushed and passed by republicans across the country in florida. Republicans passed a law that basically attempts to criminalize protesting. that's going to be challenged. Introducing new crimes aggravated rioting and mob intimidation law also and this is real increases protection so those responding to the demonstrations granting civil legal immunity to drivers who run through crowds of protesters or republicans are also trying to pass a vote a restriction. Bill which would make absentee voting. Harder just passed out of the florida senate rules committee. It's one of hundreds of such bills. According to brennan center for justice as of last month legislators have introduced three hundred and sixty one bills with restrictive provisions in forty seven states. Not just in places where republicans feel might lose but in places like montana where trump won comfortably and they elected republican governor. That governor just signed a pair of laws ending same day voter registration and increasing restrictions on voter identification ari. Berman is a senior reporter mother jones covering voting rights. Also the author of give us the ballot unmodern struggle for voting rights in america and he joins me now. Are you know one of the things that came through. I thought very effectively. In stacey abrams response to senator kennedy. And all these bills there is a kind of death by a thousand cuts. Feel to that small like. Oh we're going to limit this and we're gonna make wouldn't reduce drop boxes and reduce hours and squeeze a little bit. It's all these marginal changes that all go in one direction. That's absolutely right. It's a cumulative impact of voter suppression. Chris and remember in georgia. They initially wanted to do these big sweeping changes. They wanted to get rid of. No excuse absentee voting. They wanted to repeal automatic or distraction. They wanted to cut weekend voting and that was so politically unpopular. They went for these more under the radar changes. They thought people wouldn't be able to understand things like stripping the secretary of state of power after he stood up to trump giving them control over election. Miseration that it didn't have before or throwing out. Ballots are cast in the wrong precinct. And i think the net effect is remember. Trump asked the republican secretary of state georgia to find him eleven thousand votes and the sector. They couldn't do that so now. They are passing these laws to try to find eleven thousand votes and more by making it harder vote in future elections. Georgia's such an interesting example. Because there's a. there's a history there with. Brian camden stacey abrams. Before this there's a longer history there because it's a state in the in the deep south that had all the kind of jim crow laws on the books prior to voting rights ac and now it's a state that flip by this narrow margin huge montana's interesting because it's like republicans did fine. They same voter registration and they did find. You could win an election as a republican. You don't need this and yet same impulse one of the first things. The governor's doing well. This is the playbook all across the country chris. The top priority of the republican party right now is to make it harder to vote and not just in states that joe biden. Obviously that is ground. Zero for the effort places like georgia arizona michigan. This is where they're most desperate to enact these restrictions on voting but they're also pushing them in states that trump won like florida and states that he won quite comfortably like montana and iowa so they're all marching off the same kind of playbook and the laws that they are passing to restrict. Voting rights are very similar all across the country for example georgia. Pass the bill that criminalise giving food and water to people in line that was quite controversial vision. Well similar bills have now been introduced in florida and in talks criminalizing election administration. That's happening not just in georgia. But in iowa in florida in other states in texas and so really not just. They're not just trying to make it harder to vote in all these states. They're trying to make it hard going all the same weights practically state after state after state there is You know there's an ohio story. I saw today about that. Judicial elections that democrats have done pretty well in and they're they don't have the party line listed even though the the judicial people running for these state courts are democrats republicans and the republicans. Want to change it now to have a partisan idea and i thought it was interesting because that is anti-democratic can kind of make arguments in both directions honestly in terms of voter transparency but if yet another example of losing a set of elections and immediately going to the rules as the thing the thing to deal with as opposed to like your message platform. Whatever you're going do well. That's been the playbook all across the country. It hasn't been to reach out to more voters. it's been how to have. Fewer voters participate in the process. And it's always about changing the rules only when they don't work for that so in georgia republicans wrote all of the voting laws and they were perfectly fine with them until democrats started them in large numbers. And it's interesting in florida. They're trying to make it harder to vote by mail. They're trying to get rid of dropbox while they're only doing that. When democrats outnumbered republicans in male voters for the first time so they trump it they talk about trying to get people to vote by mail and then the second democrat. Start doing say no no no we have to get rid of these things really telling that instead of trying to appeal to more voters. They're just trying to have voters participate. And i think that's basically their central organizing principle everywhere when it comes to how they view democracy. Yeah i mean. I think they have a convinced themselves and i. I don't even think the right about this. Here's the crazy thing. I don't think the right. I don't even think the statistics bear it out. But they've convinced themselves. The fewer people voting the better for us and so on the margins. Let's let's let's make it harder ari berman. Who is the the reporter on this beat and has been for awhile. Thanks so much. Thanks for all right. Don't go anywhere as.

"Biden officials are bracing for the possibility of a weeks long disruption to the johnson and johnson vaccine supply which comes or could come on the heels of that factory.

Up to save his company can deliver ten percent more pfizer doses than previously agreed to by the end of may which should help make up for the shortfall. Keep in mind. Those extra. ten percent doses are more than johnson. Johnson has been administered altogether. Okay johnson johnson has been a very small sliver of american vaccination thus far the pause on the use of johnson johnson vaccine was technically just a recommendation from those government agencies but most states immediately halted use single-dose vaccine along with major pharmacies. Us military most americans with johnson and johnson shots scheduled in the coming days saw them cancelled rescheduled. Some states quickly switching those people to other available vaccines today. Dr anthony fauci said that anyone who got the johnson johnson vaccine more than two weeks ago should be in the clear so someone who maybe had a month or two ago would say. What does this mean for me. It really doesn't mean anything. You're okay because if you look at the frame the timeframe when this occurs it's pretty tight from a few days six to thirteen days from the time of the vaccination

Is the Republican Party Radicalizing Against Democracy With Voting Bills?
"Good evening from new york. I'm chris hayes. As the biden administration the democratic congress and the country as a whole trying to claw our way out of an unprecedented national crises the republican party coast to coast has found its mission for the year. Twenty twenty one make it harder for americans to vote right now. We're on track to see the largest rescue bill. In recent memory signed into law by president biden. This week we would provide direct relief to americans billions for vaccination programs money to reopen schools. Keep restaurants open and not a single republican either house or the senate has voted for it instead after losing the popular vote in seven of the last eight presidential elections going all the way back to nineteen ninety. Two republicans are laser focused on restricting. Voting accents brennan centers tracking all the bills aimed at restricting access to the polls list includes two hundred fifty three bills introduced pre filed carryover this year in forty three states in georgia of course already notorious for having absurdly long lines to vote with residents waiting up to eleven hours to cast their ballots fall. Republican governor brian camp has waged a long battle to make the voting process. More difficult in his previous. Role is georgia's secretary state. He oversaw the closing polling places in the purging of hundreds of thousands of registered voters polls. Thanks in part to the efforts to stacey abrams and other activists on the ground registering hundreds of thousands of new voters. Turn out in two thousand and twenty in georgia in the election was unbelievably high smashing records. And of course also helping to repel joe biden. The white house georgia's election last november was also just about the most scrutinized and scrutinize audited of any state in the nation. Remember this they counted the votes three times in that state. they did a hand recount of five million ballots. There is zero doubt whatsoever. The results in georgia were accurate and more georgians than ever before me. Their voices heard so what did state republicans do just yesterday. The state senate passed a bill limiting. No excuse absentee voting which is one point three million georgians including four hundred and fifty thousand. Republicans voted in two thousand and twenty just last week. Republicans at the state house passed a sweeping piece of legislation cutting weekend days from early voting restricting. The use of drop boxes adding new requirements for absentee voting restricting. The amount of time election officials have to send out mail ballots and voters have to return them and prohibiting the distribution of food and water to voters waiting. Mine fact making it a misdemeanor handing out food or drink to waiting in the longest lines in the country. That's all because there are any actual problems with the administration of elections in georgia. It's because the republicans lost it's because they lost and they think these things will make it easier for them to win next time but keep in mind. This is not just happening in georgia which is of course the center of a lot of attention as swing state with the closest election last cycle. Take a look at how crazy things are in iowa not a state where republicans disappointing results last year. Okay in fact i will. Republicans did great in twenty twenty flipped to house. Seats held onto a third. And you know what loads of islands voted breaking the all time general election turnout record and they had pretty expansive voter. Access including early voting absentee voting and same day registration and in. I woke him up again. All of that. Work in republicans favor. Donald trump carried the state joni ernst reelected. They've flipped to houses. So what is the problem. Well the problem is at the. Republican party is radicalizing against democracy almost as a guiding principle. They fear voter access. They want to shut it down. They are using the cover of the big lie. The wildly insidious and poisonous lie. The election was stolen propagated by the former president and his party and written media to just make it harder to vote and not only harder for specifically disfavored groups like african americans are democrats. Were generally although these measures will disproportionately hurt them. It's major part of all this but also just horrid vote and get all like as a kind of ideological fixation. There are a lot of weight. Republicans i will. Who will have a hard time voting. Thanks the measure signed into law today by republican governor kim reynolds new law cuts the states early voting period down by nine days. It tightens the timeline. For when absentee ballots must be received. In order to be counted it strips county auditors of much of their discretion and running elections including establishing satellite in-person early voting sites which are useful and mailing absentee ballot request forms voters. Who didn't specifically asked for one. It limits who can return. Voters absentee ballot. And get this. It closes the polls at our earlier on election day. Just think about that so it would that for a second. What conceivable argument is there to close the polls in our earlier like the fraudsters show up in the last hour of the day to do their fraud. No no there is no argument. There is not even of an argument.

Were just elected in that special election in january. Obviously a closely divided swing state the state of georgia. Now we'll be up again in two years because it was a special election. So i think it's you could say that you're you have the most frontline position of any senator in that caucus so from the position of your political life. What what do you want to tell your fellow democrats about what you need to deliver back to your constituents in georgia. Well we've been fighting that that good fight from day one for me but for the people i was sent here to represent you. You know that. I come into this job as a pastor someone who is used to walking with people through their pain. I've seen firsthand. The ways in which people are suffering through this pandemic that has literally taken their loved ones. Half a million americans has devastated our economy and the good news again is.

It's it isn't true if you listen to his rhetoric. But if you listen to what he's actually proposing and again he's so typical of.

Tonight what states are doing to stop trump assault on democracy then the insanity of Republicans leading the covert rescue laps with Senator Sherrod Brown plus stark admission from Dr. Vouch. E on the failure of the federal response to grow in a virus and a shocking new report on how the White House ditch their own cova testing plan because the affected states vote for Democrats when all in starts right now. Good evening from New York I'm Chris Hayes of all the crazy things happening right now there are a lot. The craziest might be something that is not happening. There's no one on the floor of the United States Senate. There's no in their offices they're not on Capitol Hill. If all gone home for the weekend, in fact, they went home yesterday congress is in recess right now the very day that six hundred dollars a week of unemployment insurance bonuses for tens of millions of people has expired. It's done as of today. It's a shocking and disgusting slap in the face from the Republican Senate leadership to struggling Americans the Democratic House has already passed a bill to re re up at. But also think about how insane this is politically. There's an election less than one hundred days. You might have noticed the Republican Party currently has a majority in the Senate it's defending a bunch of intensely contested seats. There's a sitting Republican president probably heard that too he's up for reelection. The country is in a once in a century catastrophe. The Gross Domestic Product is down nearly a record ten percent in just one quarter just look at bat chart. That's where we are there tens of millions of people unemployed more than one hundred and fifty three thousand Americans are dead for a pandemic that is raging across the country. And the CDC is now forecasting the total American death toll could hit one hundred and eighty, two, thousand by August twenty second. In about three weeks. Opening in person instruction up and down the country restaurants are going out of business, right and let baseball can barely function. All of American life is torn asunder. We are drowning here folks and Senate Republicans are just like peace, Summer Fridays. You know how we do. Reveals a deep truth about the Republican Party right now. But a governing level they have no answers for the catastrophe political level. They are acting like a party that understands they are about to get creamed. It's an accident that half the Republican Senate Caucus is rebelling against doing anything some of those prominent opponents or people who clearly have their eyes on the future people senators Ben Sasse, Josh Holly, and Ted Cruz. People were very clearly already pivoting to be the tough austerity opposition in a future democratic presidency after their own party basically destroyed the country. You have the CO founder of the conservative federalist, society. The group that has essentially hand-picked the president's. Chew Supreme, court nominees, and all his appellate nominees and all the judges he's confirmed. A man who rose the defensive trump amidst the motor investigation calling trump's latest outrageous tweet about postponing the election fish cystic his words, and impeachable. Now. Maybe he just was really offended by that tweet by by what it meant or maybe he's cashing in his chips having already won the conservative judges that he wanted. You former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan writing the Republican Party has to be rebuilt. You the President and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Knifing each other publicly today I don't think people quite realize what happened on this, but McConnell has said from the beginning and this is itself nuts. That he's number one priority amidst the pandemic, that's now killing an American every minute is to make sure the bosses can make you go back to work and then you can't sue them. Okay. So liability protection. That's what Mitch McConnell cares about Donald Trump who actually has a better sense of what is politically popular the Mitch McConnell basically had his spokesperson say say we don't care about liability protection we just want to get the money out the door And that's because of course, they understand the reelection depends on. Republicans are losing the generic ballot by eight points. Trump approval rating is at forty percent. He's looting in head to heads with Joe Biden by eight points. Right now, he is losing all the swing states. They're behind in Senate races according to the polling in Maine in Colorado way behind in Arizona, they're competitive in a bunch of states they should not be or people didn't anticipate North Carolina and those are real races. Political reports Republicans are worried about losing even more seats in the house. Which is hard to do at this point because they're pared down to basically the bare minimum after two, thousand, eighteen, the one thing the Republican Party could do to turn it. All around would be competently govern the country and to get a handle on the panic, but they cannot do that. and. So this point, Donald Trump is just getting up and knocking over the chess. Board. You know his campaign suspended their AD spending less than one hundred days before the election. They slow down there. August. Ad By an election year with a record setting amount of money sitting the bank with referred to as the death. Star. And I think the reason they got some negative press. They've reversed himself to the reason I think is right now. The new plan basically happening right in front of is, is to undermine the election itself. Increasingly.

Here's a headline watching post- postal service backlog sparks worries that ballot delivery could be delayed November.

"Evening from New York I'm Chris Hayes today. George Floyd was laid to rest in his hometown of Houston as the protest sparked by his killing, continuing small towns and big cities across America undeterred, in fact, even invigorated by President who has set himself in opposition to the protesters. The conditions in this country in so many ways have changed so much in the past couple of weeks over the past months is almost impossible for US covering it day in day out watching the news and the headlines to fully conceive of where things stand. How much the world in this country changed, those changes have proven to be task strange paradoxical nature of Donald Trump's political strength. His ability to hold tightly do is. Despite repeatedly saying and doing terrible things that would sink virtually any other politician. Back in two thousand sixteen trump infamously said you'll recall could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot. Somebody would not lose any voters. He said it sort of surprised bemused. It turns out that ushering the worst cataclysm in the nation in a century guiding the economy and recession and standing in opposition to majority of Americans support the protests and say police need to change well. It turns out that all does have an effect. Day by day more data accrues to show how politically wiki is. How politically imperilled and how much the actual crises of the country are overwhelming his ability to distract Americans and manipulate the media. fivethirtyeight polling average on April. I had trump your forty six percent approval for the past ten weeks. He's seen that approval rating steadily erode dropping nearly five points down to forty one percent. That may not look like a lot, but keep in mind. This is someone who polling has been remarkably stable. Also the poll suggests Donald. Trump would be absolutely crushed by Joseph Biden if the election were held today. Get this and just the past week pulls. A came out showing Biden up fifteen points in Michigan up nine Wisconsin. Up. To Ohio tied in Iowa tied in Texas, all states trump won in two thousand sixteen. After. A recent CNN poll showed Biden up. Fourteen points nationally trump got so upset that he and He retained a highly respected pollster to analyze poll. Another's which I felt were all caps fake. Terrible numbers have taken such a toll on the president's fragile ego. The trump campaign is spent slightly more than four hundred thousand dollars on Cable News ads where well in the swing state of Washington DC over the past month, according to the daily beast, even though he no shot up winning there or in the surrounding states, it's an apparent effort to show the president who spend most of his day all of his day. Something like that watching Cable News and tweeting. They're running ads for him. They got his back. And then today amidst the national conversation just moved so quickly on police reform that even conservative Republicans like Flying Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. Have placed themselves on the side of reform. And it's this. Change public opinion, the president of the United States today took took aim at the frail cancer, surviving seventy-five-year-old lifelong peace activist in Buffalo, named Martin Buccino a man who gently approached the cops to talk to them, and was shoved to the ground in front of us all. Blood pooling next to his head. Mr Gino who has spent his life, advocating for causes like peace and justice had to spend nearly a week in the ICU. The president today decided to suggest the elderly posters press. Chester could be ANTIFA provocateur. WHO's trying to scan police communications earned a blackout the equipment by the way he fell harder than was pushed. Setup? In response to that. Insane Disgusting Conspiracy Theory Martino himself told USA Today and the at he has quote no comment. Other than black lives matter just out of the ICU should recover eventually, thanks. Always been this kind of feral candy nist the way the trump plays politics. We've all seen it, and it can be hard to tell. Is this man a master manipulator? We'll just kind of brain dead regurgitation of the dark fantasy that make up his media diet. Right now sure seems like the ladder, doesn't it? President is running options slipping the polls. None of his tricks are working, but of course he will stop at nothing to hang onto power, which is why he has been trying to whip up this frenzy of illegitimacy around the basic administration and free and fair elections in this Democratic Republic, and also why his Republican allies have in making it harder for people to vote either by mail despite the pandemic in person. which brings us to election day? Today was election day. Five states held primaries including NBC, including Georgia where NBC News Projects Joe Biden on the Democratic presidential primary. Not that surprising he's the only one left in the race, and this was a scene in the state of Georgia earlier today. Look at.

"Joining me now for more on the president's attempt to pass the blame onto the state Democratic Congresswoman Paul of Washington and congresswoman. You know I suppose the silver lining of the president wanting to essentially delegate and blame is that at the very least he's not like ordering states back into business or things like that at the very least gotten out of the way enough that states that have managed it well like the state of Washington. Your state and I know you've been in a lot of contact with local leaders about this. Have been able to do what they needed to do. I suppose that's the one upside. What what is the cost of this kind of back seat? Approach the president's taking well Chris I mean I think that first of all what we really need to do is liberate ourselves from this president because he has not been helpful in coordinating a federal response. Now some of the people on his team have been we have been able to work closely with some of those people including Dr Foul not a doctor. Burks even the vice president but I think in order for us to beat this virus which is the central question is not about opening up the economy. If we're GONNA open up the economy we have to beat the virus and that is central to this and if the federal government had a coordinated response to how we were GONNA put in place the ability to have testing the the ability to have contact tracing. That is what we need steady supply of the equipment. The tasks all of those things but tied to that in this. Your previous guests was speaking to this. In the meantime we have to make sure we're dealing with the economic devastation. That we have already seen twenty two million people who have filed new unemployment claims in the last month this is going to be a quick downward spiral unless we quickly have a bold solution and that is why. I introduced my paycheck Guarantee Act last week the Senate also just introduced something very similar. What this would do is ensure that we keep people on paychecks. We stanch the flow of unemployment Which is what other countries in Europe have done Germany France Denmark and we ensure that paychecks and benefits continue for workers by directing that money to businesses to put into that payroll and benefits would also does from a public health perspective is gifts incentives for people to stay home for businesses to stay closed and workers to stay home for as long as public health dictates and when we ramp up it is not going to be turning on a light switch. It's going to be a slow ramp up that if we need to re shudder as you were talking about which is really a very real possibility when ninety to ninety five percent of the time. Yeah we'll be uninfected. That's a very real possibility. So we would need to be able to have businesses re shudder and my proposal would allow for us to scale. So if a business is losing seventy percent of its revenue it would get seventy percent of the amount and it would automatically renew based on economic triggers that we would have to meet is so that we know the crisis is over. I wonder about you know. There's there's the there's sort of two things right. There's the virus in the economic devastation. And we have to sort of do both and managing that economic devastation is the thing that will facilitate the conditions to allow us to do what we have to do to to to beat back the virus or do you think there is enough urgency right now among your colleagues. I talked to Jeffrey Speaker. Closest week to to get a bill passed. I mean clearly. There wasn't enough money there. He just in the pay payroll protection. Act which is designed to precisely the way you say right. The the loans are forgivable key people on payroll. Is there enough urgency? Are you moving quickly? Enough is enough being done to kind of keep people supportive. Well I think the problem is. We've tried to use existing systems to deliver relief but those systems are not designed to deliver this kind of relief in this day in aid. So we've used unemployment insurance. That's great but we can't have twenty two million New People joining a unemployment insurance and expect to be able to process that quickly the paycheck protection program was a good set of principles. And as you point out similar to what I'm doing but number one it is incredibly inefficient in how it's delivered using a network of banks and the small business administration when we could go straight from treasury to a business on top of that it's only for companies that have less than five hundred businesses that have less than five hundred workers. Small businesses are incredibly important and so are the large businesses. Small businesses have much less relationship to banks so they are disadvantaged in getting the P and large businesses that have laid off twelve hundred workers. We also need to address the issues of how we keep those workers on paychecks because at the end of the day if we don't prevent this enormous mass unemployment that is here our economy will continue to go into a downward spiral. We won't be able to stimulate consumer demand. We will lose too many businesses on any can't be alone. Even forgivable mine would be a grant that would be made directly to the business. It would be very simple very streamline and we would keep the economy going even through partial recovery so that we can continue to at least hold a level of stasis in the economy rather than trending down congresswoman.

Here's how the owner of family funeral home in Brooklyn New York explained the reality there the other big issue that we have in New York City. Craig is there a very few crematories? There's really less than a handful in the whole city of New York. And so right. Now for instance. If you wanted to be cremated in Brooklyn the next available date is mid. May in two cases of people exper- facetime so that they could so that they could say goodbye to their husband or say goodbye to their mom. So but it's it's not. It's not how we're made. Both as an industry is a family run funeral home but not has where meat is humans. We look for that visual that that human contact in. It's not possible right now. It's not safe. President's failure has brought us. This moment didn't have to be this way the. Us and South Korea both reported the first confirmed cases on the very same day. Around two hundred. Thirty people have died from the disease in South Korea. Over thirty six thousand have died here in the US. It's now everywhere in this country. It is devastating. And there's no more avenue to a song and dance about boosting the stock market. Happy Talk. That's why you see the president saying today. The states have to step up testing. Even that is an acknowledgement of the failure. A concession of how bad things are and that's what fomenting all the protests is about and trying to restart party two point. Oh the president and his allies are desperate and the knowledge. It's bad it's going to be bad and the political question for them now is. Can we blame someone else? Can we blame the worst part of this reality? Is there some things? Only the federal government can do every state and local officials in saying that today was basically a declaration by the federal government of. You're on your own and not just to the states. This is key to us. Every American every family member worried about a loved one in a long term care facility or in a prison driving the bus for living or working in a beat packing plant. You're on your own figuring out. The president's transparent blame shifting has not been lost some traditional conservative folks. James Pathak UCA's at the American Enterprise Institute tweeted so trump tells the governor. They're calling the shots at the same time. He's encouraging resistance against those shots being called. What now and Jim Pathak ujpest joins me now. You have been a trump skeptic though a conservative Jim. But you've been writing about just the sort of when you step back and take a scale at look at where we are right now stipulated. This virus is nasty and difficult and the policy challenges are real and the best government in the world would screw up but the overall picture right now is really bad and I feel like there's a little bit of denial about that It is bad. Listen I think this was a poor response especially given the fact that people like to call this a black swan but the black swan has appeared like every few years since about two thousand. Five's I don't have a lot of patience for the we never saw this coming. How how did we know? Clearly our response could be better. I think every voter in America every citizen should expect a lot more from their government. But sort of here we are. What are we going to do going forward? I'm sure there's going to be some sort of commission in the future but what we do right now and the last thing the president should be doing is telling people like resist your governors. Don't listen to your governors but we need is this reopening process to go as smoothly as possible. So we don't have. We don't have a second wave of outbreaks and that this terrible economy right now doesn't last beyond June because if we get a second wave of outbreaks that we're going to have twenty five percent unemployment in the third quarter and twenty five percent unemployment in the fourth quarter that can be avoided but we need to do things now. This is the part of this. That has been so maddening to me. From the moment from late February the incentives should be aligned. The incentive for the president should be to manage this as well as possible so that as few people get sick as people die and the economy rebounds as quickly as possible. If you do a good job you should be rewarded by voters and likewise if you do a bad job and yet instead it's being managed to get through the next news cycle to plausibly. Be Able to blame the governor of Michigan for the lockdown in your state. But that's not good. That's very short sighted strategy. You can't worry about the news cycle. You sort of have to accept that you're going to go through a period here where the where. The market's going to be down by a lot that the economy is going to be down by a lot. That unemployment is going to go up and you need to get through this period so we can get control this virus and then prepare for the recovery. Prepare for when the shutdown is over. And hopefully get a sharp rebound. But you don't have that initial pain. They're not going to gain on the other end and it's going to be. I mean the election the least of it. But you know he won't get reelected if we have a third quarter where the economy's out another fifty percent annualized right because you're you're saying here and I think this is really important right. Is that if you screw up the quote unquote reopening. If you promise a reopening people go back to work and then in places that do this you see massive outbreaks and they are forced to essentially shuttering retreat. I've already seen Wall Street. Desperately wants to bid up prices because they definitely wants to believe there's a v. Shape here but they will get spooked like crazy if that happens and you will see a second crash Chris. Every forecast has the economy following it. Oh by a huge amount now but then roaring back in the you know the third quarter and fourth quarter assumes that we've sort of seen the worst of it at this point that that there won't be a second wave if that happens all bets are off. What do you think about this? Sort of the weird interplay between the sort of the fact on one day he. He announces a plan. The plan itself is defensible. The eighteen page plan phase one face to face three delegates states authorities and the next day is sort of inciting protests against people that are essentially more or less falling the plan that his own government laid out the day before so now so not only did he follow that plan but then they also it'd be a lot of planets sort of vacation spots that are redefining things so you really are counting on these governors. Do a fantastic job. Never probably never going to have them on testing. We want so we have to make sure that we have them on a social distancing that they open reopen places and logical matter so they need to ace it and if they do well then the president will do well. But you have to. You cannot worry about what's happening in the next forty six hours. Orders Protests in Michigan or Minnesota. You may love those people may be wearing your trump hats but you need to be thinking about what's going to happen in August September October November. You you're someone who pays a lot of attention to macroeconomic trends to both fiscal monetary policy. I think you and I have sort of different views on some of that stuff but but I think that you you very clearly WanNa make sure as I do. My big fear is this becomes a ripple effect that then like a snowball rolling. A mountain gathers a kind of steam as an economic contraction that when the virus goes away. Can't be unwound right. What what do you see as the crucial steps to make sure we don't end up with that and I think by far crucial stop is trying to keep things sort of intact. Yes you want people to have money so they can pay their bills and pay their rent. We make sure there's an economy to come back to which is why this whole small business support has been so important. It's gotten off to a slow start. They ran through the SBA so ended up being a little. Bit more bureaucratic. They should've they should've allotted three four five times as much money from the very beginning. So now it's now their money and they have to pass new bill. But now there's debate between Democrats or Republicans that hunk particularly of the economic. Spor plan really needs to work. Well it needs to start working better and it needs to start working better immediately because you had to continue disintegration of American business particularly small business companies five hundred employees or less then. I think you really are looking toward a very long miserable recovery. You may not technically qualifies depression for sure. GonNa feel like it. Keeping those folks in business and afloat is K. Jim Pathak UCA's similarly always make sure thank you very much. Thank you Chris Hayes. Joining me now for more on the president's attempt to pass the blame onto the state Democratic Congresswoman Paul of Washington and congresswoman. You.

"Good evening from New York. I'm Chris Hayes the. Us has had among the worst most catastrophic responses the kroner bias among pure nations and that is in large part because the president has failed at every turn and the result is unprecedented illness and misery and death in this country and that doesn't include the economic devastation. That has been this president sole focus from the beginning as he attempts to save his own political future. That means the toll of this virus becomes more and more clear every single day and can't be happy talked away. President trump now needs to find someone to blame for the crisis that he helped bring about. That's what today has been all about for the president a day after telling nations governors. You're going to call your own shots. He tweeted the states. Have to step up their testing as the Washington Post reports. Trump's the buck stops with the state's posture is largely designed to shield himself from blame. Should there be new outbreaks after states reopen or for other problems according several current and former senior administration officials involved in response. Think about that. They're designing it around. Blame shifting all along trump has wanted to have it both ways. He wants credit for anything. That goes well even for things that don't really ever happen. Like the almost not existed drive through testing and Walmart and target parking lots. We were promised that he wants to make sure the blame sticks to anyone but himself a Susan Glasser put in the New Yorker ultimate power and no responsibility in a press conference today. New York governor. Andrew Cuomo summed up the president's cowardly. Were here as backup except when we can take credit. Mantra this is mayhem. We need a coordinated approach between the federal government and the states. All he's doing is walking.

"Because of an emergency the White House Congresswoman Katie was at that hearing today. We'll talk about what happened next. We aren't the ones that called the alarm being raised about this pandemic as fake news that came out of the president of the United States about and no gas lighting is a high that House Oversight Committee held a hearing today on the federal response to Corona virus. Were Dr Anthony. Fauci the head of the National Institute Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Delivered a serious warning. The worst of the pandemic is yet to come. The testimony however was cut short ending an hour and a half earlier than planned. Because president trump summoned the witnesses to what chairwoman Carolyn Maloney called equal emergency meeting at the White House or the members of that committee who has denied her opportunity to question. America's top public health officials Congressman Katie. Puerto of California. Who JOINS ME? Now I let me just start on that. Do you have a clear understanding of what happened this morning? And why that Oversight Committee hearing was cut short. We were simply told that there was a meeting that they were required to attend at the White House. We do understand that the witnesses will be present again tomorrow They believe eleven. Am for the hearing to continue. And I'm looking forward to questioning them and continuing to press them on the administration's response out that type two concerns. One of them has to do with what we're just speaking out in previous segment about cost in a letter that you wrote to Alexander among others it is critical that any cost barrier limits cove in nineteen diagnostics testing be removed so those who may be infected not forgo testing because of cost concerns. Is there currently any national policy or mandate that says anyone who is tested can do it for free? I'm really glad you're asking about this. Because this is exactly what I'm going to be tackling with the witnesses tomorrow at the hearing so I don't think I've known for tipping my hand to the witnesses but I really want to. I really want them to get this answer right when I put them to them tomorrow. At the hearing there is an existing regulation already in. Us Law that provides during a public health emergency that the CDC can pay for treatment examination and testing all of those things. And so that's that's already in our Federal Regulations. That's already one of the tools that has been at the disposal of the Department of Health and Human Services and the CDC this entire time. So I'm going to call them tomorrow publicly to make sure that testing and treatment is free and the insurers pay their portion but the American families are not left that no American is left paying out of pocket or deterred from getting testing or treatment because of cost barriers. We have been trying in our own reporting and I know other sort of crackdown. What has happened with testing and the bottlenecks in it and the lack of capacity. I know it's a concern you have do. You have a clear idea. Is there. Good communication with the White House. About what exactly the precise status of it is and what the obstacles to scaling up our. There's actually been a real gap between what we here at these. Where have now become weekly coronavirus briefings and then what we hear when we go home and talk to families and constituents. I'll I had a telephone call this week. A conference call with hospitals in my area They were all expressing that they don't necessarily have access to testing if they are sending testing in. It's taking days and days to get responses One of the things that were exploring is there's a CRA multiple failures in this testing process. One of them is not enough. Swab kits not enough kits disseminated to the right locations in quickly enough but one of the things that we do potentially have at. Our disposal is a lot of our research. Labs use the same equipment to do testing that is currently used in the clinical healthcare setting. So it may be possible to use some of those research laboratories at universities for example to do some of the clinical testing but there's a process and some administrative barriers to getting through that. And so I'm interested in continuing to explore. How can we bring existing resources to bear on this problem quickly? Final question for you. You're you're a member of the Democratic Caucus. It appears that some kind of stimulus package is going to be unveiled tomorrow by Democratic leadership. That's the indication we have. You have a sense of that or do you. At least have your principles and priorities from what you want to see out of a package tomorrow. Absolutely I'm going to be looking for something that's going to be putting families first. That's going to be prioritizing public health commitments. The House already passed a bill last week. Eight point three billion. Those were the things that Dr Chee in particular who I think has been the most reliable Administration official in terms of understanding really the science behind. This and what we can do to save lives. We already did that last week this week. We're looking to focus on understanding and protecting families who may be. I'm not able to get meals Dealing with transportation or school closures. Trying to make sure that we're putting families I in this. This is not the time to be. The stock market will stabilize when families are stabilized. When health conditions stabilize the market will respond. So I'm disappointed that we have a president who thinking more about the interests of special interests and big corporations that he is about the healthcare and life and death situation of American families Congresswoman Katie Porter of California as always. Thank you so much just ahead what we learn when Bernie..

"Corona viruses spread every nation has faced policies along a spectrum from containment to mitigation containment aims to identify isolate. The viruses stop it spread when it first appears in a country with the hope that maybe you could just kind of snuff out eventually. Though what's happened in country after country the virus gets out among the population and then governments are forced to move to mitigation approaches. The problem is that mitigation is just incredibly disruptive Bo socially and economically just last week a senior official at the Centers for Disease Control Deck. Dr Nancy Massoni warned that as the virus spreads which was inevitable mitigation efforts are going to be implemented the disruption to everyday life might be severe. But here's the thing. These mitigation efforts are necessarily disruptive. You have to start doing these. Big Societal things means of slowing transmission. And I don't want to talk to three people who know how to deal with this kind of thing are thinking about how to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio currently trying to contain the corona virus city congresswoman. Donna Shalala Florida who served as secretary of Health and Human Services under president. Bill Clinton and Dr. Pierre Hotel has back on the program professor and Dean of Baylor College of Medicine's National School of Tropical Medicine. Mr Mayor let me begin with you. We know that there have been some cases in the New York area. There's reports of New York City teacher who travelled to Italy who may be showing symptoms. How how were you thinking about? What steps you're taking at. The city level containment exactly is the strategy look. We you're still thinking of containment. Oh absolutely because the the the sad reality. That's going to be the history. This is the United States. Government had focused on decentralized approach getting testing out early. We would be an entirely different reality. That could have been done weeks ago but the fact of New York City now finally has independent testing capacity. As of Monday means we can aggressively go out. Identify potential cases. We're ruling out the vast majority when we test the ones that we find. We are able to take them and contain them meaning isolate them and stay at least for now a head of the situation so. I think if you take a muscular approach and we have a huge public health apparatus and we now in New York City guarantee people healthcare regardless of ability to pay regardless of documentation status. So we've got a very open environment. We're inviting people in daycare. That gives us the best chance. We actually might stay ahead of this for a period of time congresswoman you. Hhs and we're starting to see sort of early. Signs part of the problem policymakers have faced. Is that taking these kind of big mitigation. Efforts is is disrupted right. You cancel conferences or you get rid of corporate travel or you ask people to work from home today. We saw in the state of Washington. They're asking for that. And policymakers are reticent to do that because it disrupts people's lives how. How should we be thinking about that? Balance and trade off. Well that is a balance in. It's a judgment call but first of all we have to have our testing apparatus in place Look we have world class physicians scientists at the CDC at the FDA at the NIH that are working on this in addition with the vice president in charge of. We were briefed today. I have some hope that the government is starting to come together now. I don't think it's useful for us to just beat up the government you know. Fear is virus and we have to be careful in this process. The president was totally undisciplined. They tried to set him straight on the vaccines but he is undisciplined. So we have to move beyond that and the first line of Defense our state and local governments. Luckily New York City has a world class health public health system which has had a lot of experience dealing with AIDS and TB and other infectious diseases. And they're an an Washington state. Which is the epicenter. Now also has a very good health system. We've got to fund them appropriately. The problem here is that we have never funded this country for readiness in public health. We've never put the kind of resources together. So we don't have to add Hockett every time we see a disease and see a new virus and frankly there's another virus coming along. I don't know what its name is but then the next year or two we're going to see it and unless we're ready for it it's going to just be another ad hoc process. Dr Dr Hotels. Where do you a given given the sort of limited testing we've been doing and now we're getting more mass deployment? How is your what is your understanding of where we are right now in the US. Thanks for having me Chris. It's great to be here. You know what we're seeing now is the beginning of evidence of community spread and it's really taking off now in the Seattle area and Washington. Dc and based on that. We've already seen what we can expect. And it's it's not great in for instance in the nursing. Home in Kirkland. We've already seen seven deaths and there may be more to follow so what that's telling us. Is We know from the studies in Wuhan that the mortality rates the death rate among older people over seventy as ten fifteen percent. So you're hearing strange messages. This is just the flu or a mild virus. Certainly if you're over the age of seventy that's not the case. This virus is ripped through the nursing. Home like the angel of death and we have to recognize now that every nursing home in the country is potentially vulnerable including because of our guests tonight Miami and New York City. And we have to get ready for that. So we've got a now strategically place our testing such a way that we're going to protect those individ but we've seen with other populations as well. Our healthcare workers are highly vulnerable again. We saw listen Wuhan. We knew this was coming. So we know our healthcare workers and if they start to go down the whole system falls apart and there are others among taxi. Drivers Uber Drivers highly risk. So I think the message is as we increase the number of kits and I hope that that happens very soon. We're GONNA have to be strategic at least in the beginning how we use them and focus all of our energy on protecting those highly vulnerable populations right now Dr Houghton just as important. I think is sort of important to stress here right because people are worried about the virus. And there's a difference between the Personal Mike Pence d you. The risk is low right now and he's right even Italy Italy's got sixty million people's got five thousand cases right. That's a tiny fraction Italian relation. Right like you compared to car accidents fluids so it's that the individual risk to you watching this right now is is relatively low that changes if you're compromising it's the systemic risk right. I mean the the capacity of public health hospitals in New York City. The number ventilators you have I mean. Is that how you are thinking about it as mayor? Yeah I mean. Look when you're responsible for people's health and safety you actually start with the individual to be fair so for those older folks for those folks who are compromise. Our job is to try and see if we can get to them in time to help them right to identify or protect them in whatever way we can but your bigger point is exactly right. The irony here is I mean for the vast majority of people. Even if they contracted it's not going to be a seismic experience it is the dislocation of the whole society of the economy the way it knocks out our ability to do a lot of other things. We need to look the best defensive offense in this case I think which is to again very as much as humanly possible contain and I understand. There are limits to that ultimate ultimately as much as possible test contain. Get the measures out there to try and help people in need the shocking thing here. I think this is. This is the harbinger of things to come in a globalised world. New Strains of bacteria resistant strains new diseases emerging and a healthcare system. That's antiquated we're gonNA see more this. If ever there was an advertisement for Medicare for all. We're seeing it right now with the corona virus. And Look we've done as I said we're guaranteeing healthcare right now in New York City. We're saying whoever YOU ARE REGARDLESS OF BILL. Pay You get a permanent here. Dr. We have a way to help you with our public hospitals and clinics. This has to be our future or these kind of things will run wild part. You talked Congressman about about some of the holes in the public health system in the US. Are you concerned about the ways in which say lack of public of lack of sick days or people's fears about attest there's a Miami man I think who tested and got a huge bill might impact the way that we can comprehensively deal with us? He got a huge bill because he had a junk. Healthcare plan which All of us have jetted to over the last few months. We've just passed a bill a few hours ago for eight billion dollars. That's a down payment on putting together of the systems that we need To to deal with this virus. And that's just a down payment. We know that we have to glue the healthcare system together and make deep investments in state and local health systems and give everyone access. If a doctor says you ought to go get a test. You ought to be able to get that test. The commercial testing system has now been employed so that we don't have to depend just on the academic health centers and the state testing systems We're going to use the commercial systems. And they're already gearing up to make sure that we have tests available for those who need those tests but targeting the populations that are vulnerable is going to be critical in the days and weeks ahead. Dr Hotels you've talked about some of the lessons we've learned from Wuhan. Which is the epicenter of the outbreak? And one I wanted to talk about how to make evaluations government evaluations evaluations on big policy. Decisions like closing schools from Japan did. Italy announced today is closing schools. Iraqi Kurdistan is closing Friday prayers in mosques. What's the tipping point? How do you make that decision from an epidemiological standpoint? Well I think we're gonNA depend on the level of transmission in the community. We may not be far from that In the Seattle area and we'll have to see how this moves forward in the coming weeks. Remember how this works and we saw it with Zeka in in two thousand sixteen. You know you've got tremendous health. Department New York City Health Department as the mayor points is one of the finest in the world. That's outstanding in Miami a Houston in Harris County outstanding health departments. That's the gold standard. Unfortunately there are a lot of health departments in this country. That don't meet that gold standard. We saw this Zico. There are some especially in some of the smaller towns were Larry's there's almost zero capacity to manage this and handle this. I'm hoping that a good chunk of that whatever. The number is seven eight billion dollars. We'll go the bill. That capacity as the congressman points out. We should have been ready for this before because the next virus is going to come along. We just have vast variability heterogeneity in the ability of our local public health departments to respond. Great Point Mayor Bill Brazo Congresswoman. Donna Shirley Ila Dr Peter Hotels.

"hayes" Discussed on All In with Chris Hayes
"Evening from New York. I'm Chris Hayes. The race to the Democratic presidential nominee has changed dramatically over the last three days and particularly in the last twenty four hours. It is now effectively a two person race. Only Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders can feasibly earn enough delegates to win the nomination. This clear last night but then two things happened today. That made it even more of a two person race. I Michael Bloomberg dropped out of the race threw his support to Biden and then after missing the fifteen percent delegate threshold in most Super Tuesday states elizabeth campaign manager center an email. The staff this morning saying they are quote disappointed the results and that warm. We'll be going to take time right now to think through the right way to continue this fight. Last night was surprising delegate. Victory for Joe Biden who is expecting Bernie Sanders to win the evening and basically just wanted to survive the night with not too big of a lead for Sanders. Instead it was Biden who won states where he was pulling away behind just a few days ago he won Minnesota and Maine. He Went Massachusetts Elizabeth Warren Home State where she came in Third Biden also managed to pull out a victory Texas which many people were not anticipating exit polls show that late deciding voters broke heavily for Joe Biden. Much of sudden success was powered by people who decided to vote for him right before they cast their votes. And of course that happened following the very intense concerted consolidation of a certain part of the Democratic Party behind Joe Biden. One of the most influential figures in all of South Carolina. Politics Congressman. Jim Clyburn kick it off with a key endorsement right. Before the South Carolina primary last weekend then former candidates people to judge Amy Klobuchar to work all endorse Biden Monday night Joe Biden now according to our estimates has a fifty to delegate lead on Bernie Sanders Today Sanders held a press conference where he talked up his winning California and look forward to the upcoming primaries in states like Michigan Washington. Now Sanders is not out of it for sure but the problem is once you get behind the delegate race with proportional allocation. It's very hard to make up the ground particularly when you look at who is likely to do well in those upcoming state contests with anything. Biden Super Tuesday. Success is a testament to way that black voters older voters and suburban women have been looking for some kind of singular candidate some signal from the party. Some arrived at consensus of how to end the primary and move on the general election and who could best take on trump and the signal. That's been sent from a lot of party elders. Particularly in the last few days is clear and if Bernie Sanders cannot find a way to appeal to a bigger percentage of Democrats outside his existing base the nomination Mike quickly be out of his reach joining me now for more on what we learned last night is Barbara Boxer. She's a former Democratic senator from the state of California now co hosting the Boxer Pad podcast. She has endorsed Vice President. Joe Biden for president. Senator you endorse within the last week right yes. I waited 'til after South Carolina as soon as I saw it. I wrote out a statement. I send it to the Biden campaign. I said here it is use it as you want. I'm for Joe because clearly that timing the timing a lot of people felt right but I don't get why folks who worked with Joe Biden like Joe Biden supported him as I think I've had you on the program clearly few warmly towards him. You have a Lotta respect for the man. Why not do it a month ago or six weeks ago? Why did everyone wait till South Carolina? What did that do to the way that you think of the race? That's such a great question. I was thinking about it because it wasn't an anomaly. For people like me to wait. It also was reflective of voters so many voters who couldn't decide. I think we all wanted to see who could beat. Donald Trump and when we saw South Carolina Coalition. Come you know right to the fore and it was so broad and deep as you said not only African American voters suburban women men you know every age group really remarkable. Turn out for him that was the signal and and everyone just got on board. I think there's huge momentum and I think it took courage for Buddha judge and Bloomberg Hall had the dream you know to set it aside for the good of the country. I WanNa give you an argument that I see people make who are less sold on Joe Biden. Whether for ideological reasons were electable reason. Let's talk about the ladder for a second. Which is basically that. He hasn't been a particularly strong candidate. That the reason there was reticence on many people to get behind him was because people are watching his performance and didn't think it was particularly good. That has not been particularly effective communicator on the trail and that all of those problems still linger despite the consolidation that we've seen the last few days. What do you say to that does not a perfect candidate? I mean he's not slick and he has never been slick I know him for years he goofs up on some words you know that he overcame of terrible stammering stutter. And he's been knocked down in his life and he. I think the metaphor from South Carolina was hearing was before that really pretty well knocked down. Perhaps out the sanders people said it was over and he came back and I think because he's imperfect in a way it makes him more the every man you know the every person we are all flawed the way that Donald Trump and starting to get some reporting about how the trump campaign is thinking about this. Although trump just tweeted this out. So you don't and it's not like reading the tea leaves but you know the recipe for the victory over. Hillary Clinton sort of had three channels one was they were the beneficiary of foreign intelligence services helping them and engaging criminal sabotage to was to paint Hillary Clinton unrelentingly as essentially corrupt insider that she was part of the establishment she was also corrupt and she was self-dealing and the third was to try to divide the left to to sort of take advantage of fissures within the Democratic Coalition after that long primary between Sanders and Clinton. It seems very clear. They're going to run the exact same race against Joe Biden. Why are you confident? It won't work this tough people now know Donald Trump they know about the sixteen thousand lies. They know that he has no compassion. We know that it's all about him. Constantly twenty four seven. And you don't we. We see what's happening with the GOP how they just are puppets they see Russia helping trump. They see trump embracing dictators. We see and all of us see him saying that the constitution says he can do whatever he wants so this has been you know a a successful campaign by him against Hillary by the way she got more popular. But we won't go there but it's also all the things that people I've seen and are very upset about so. I think it's very different. The last point I'd make is you know the American people are smart. They know that trump did not want to see Joe Biden. Get this and he did everything to try and stop him including getting impeached. If I might say and now the people woke up and if it's the biggest turnaround I've ever seen I've been around a long time. I've been an elected life for more than forty years. I've never seen a comeback kid exactly like this one. All right a senator Barbara Boxer. Thank you so much for making time from California and I really appreciate joining me now for more on the sudden momentum swing Mehdi Hassan Columnists intercept. Host of the deconstructed podcast. Many you have your own fears about Joe Biden's electability but I want to talk about Sanders for a second. It's always struck me that the sanders kind of theory is a kind of a interestingly self-testing hypothesis in this way the idea is look were. We know we're running against the democratic establishment. He says that new says terms. We know we have the only way we can do to bring New People in right to make the math work and thus far they have not been able to deliver on that. Promise of new turnout particularly among young younger voters. It's gone up a little bit in the places where we saw the biggest turnout. Busse like Virginia last night. That is where sanders got crushed. What do you make of that? I think you're spot on their Chris and the people I spoke to today all disappointed and they don't quite get it because there is this disconnect between the huge rallies and the enthusiasm both on the ground on online and elsewhere in terms of small donors and yet youth turnout which was supposed to be what the nomination and then defeat. Donald Trump. Get as you said on Tuesday in states that he won and that he lost you turned out without g lower than it was in two thousand sixteen so that is a problem for the sanders campaign going forward. And they're gonNA have to fix that in Michigan for example next week if they're going to pull up another victory in Michigan they did in two thousand sixteen because that is crucial to his strategy. There's a there's a new campaign they put out showing Bernie Sanders of the Barack Obama. Barack Obama brazing which is an entire campaign genre. I mean Bloomberg and all sorts of people run ads like this and Ezra Klein made this point which which I think relates to that he said the work of the present requires convincing legislators in your party to support your gender sometimes. The cost of your political or policy emissions if senators and his team. Don't figure out how to do it. They could very well lose to Biden even if they win they'll be unable to govern meeting how to bring more people into the collision. Do you think that's the main challenge for them? It's not the main challenge but it's definitely a challenge. I think Jim Clyburn says that Bernie. Sanders didn't even reach out to him before South Carolina to try and woo him. I think that's a problem or having said that on the other hand let's be honest. Nothing Bernie Sanders could have said. Would've got amy Klobuchar to endorse Monday. Evening where people so. We've got to be realistic about the charming or as friendly. He fundamentally has an agenda and a policy platform. That's a lot of Democrats are not GONNA sign up for but yes he should reach out more at least at a grassroots level. And I'm glad to see him today. Saying Elizabeth Warren take your time very respectful because he does Need Elizabeth Warren Right now. Desk definitely going into Michigan into other states. I would just briefly respond to Barbara Books earlier. About Joe Biden argument. This is not really about Bernie Sanders. Now Biden's now the front runner. Yes you can hate Bernie all you can think he's a crazy communist. Who caught when an American fine but the reality is if you turn to Joe Biden said what? He's too safe Candida. I think you need to do a lot more soul. Searching more examining this is a candidate. Who's not being vetted really in most of the debates? He's hidden in amongst the ten twelve candidates. He's not being asked about the bankruptcy bill. Never really been probed about the Iraq war and and it's kind of turn around on the wall I don't get. Why Democrats as you pointed out Barbara Books to think that you can just rerun the 2016 playbook a not think that donald trump will rerun his. I mean they tried to run a pro Iraq war Pro Wall Street Establishment Democrat with a history of dubious claims dodgy dealings and dodgy comments about mass incarceration superpredators. Where did that end up? You know we'll still saying insanity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting different results. So what do you say to people that? Say Look that aside both sort of elect ability and I think an ideological critiques married. Mary together I think it's fair to say to me the strongest you know. What do you think about the people like Kirsten Cinema Right? So she had to win a very tough way race in Arizona very tough race. She won that state sort of against the odds right. She's coming out for Joe Biden..
"hayes" Discussed on All In with Chris Hayes
"Exactly twelve years ago. I was here in Manchester New Hampshire covering the Democratic primary that year. Barack Obama just pulled off this improbable win. Iowa was appalling. Head ahead in New Hampshire and the conventional wisdom when I was here right right before that election was that he would win New Hampshire and then cruised the nomination. That didn't happen. Hillary Clinton shocked everyone with an upset victory. And that set off this long hard fought delegate only get slog between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton one of the big secret weapons in that fight was Barack Obama's campaign manager a guy named David plouffe plus focused on exploiting the delegate math rules to accrue the kind of lead that ultimately de Broc of on the nominee nomination that year for instance ahead of Super Tuesday rather than fight eight to become the nominal winner in a place like California where the candidates would divvy up delegates between them Obama Instead Campaign States Idaho and Utah pulled up these decisive wind. Can't Barack Obama handily won all but a single Super Tuesday caucus one more than half these primaries. He raked in more delegates that he would have fighting for headline win in in a place like California ball seating smaller contests this pattern of competing for delegate rich winds proved very successful ultimately. It's what one Barack Obama the Democratic the party nomination two thousand and that strategy continued in the general election. David Plot suggested going for the state of Virginia a state that had not gone for a Democrat since Lyndon B Johnson in nineteen eighteen sixty four. And sure enough gene went for Barack Obama. So tonight on the eve New Hampshire primary role into actual voting. The Guy I wanted to talk to you about how to mastermind Burma. Winning Democratic Strategy is David plausible and he joins me next the campaign manager. For Barack Obama's two thousand eight bids the Democratic nomination. The White House led a campaign that overcame huge name recognition disadvantages by using delegate math. And he's here with me and I have you here David so I think and there's two ways to look at these nominating process. Just one is that there's a kind of domino effect two thousand four hundred one. I always think of where it was competitive and then carry one and then just kind of rolled in before renewed. Everyone was like well. I guess this is the person I'm nation and the others. Are these longer drawn out. Delegate battles two thousand eight being kind of most intensive those how are you thinking about the a delegate battle here if in fact this looks like a long a long road of competition so yeah well I think that is the question. It's not about states. You Win big states delegates right so two thousand and two thousand four. We saw Gordon Carry. It ended pretty quickly. Our race went to the end of very close delegates and sixteen went deep. And so I think that's the question and I think right now. The only candidate that I could see where the pathway to seize a delegate lead that they may not give up early is Bernie Sanders because he will be viable in most congressional districts on Super Tuesday. He'll be viable statewide and so the question is the race changes so much next eighteen days we basically shoot out a South Carolina. Some of the candidates to that'll be on the ballot here Ramona. It'll be live so won't you got Bloomberg looming out there. So that really is this all comes down the other things. It's by Congressional District Congressional district at all three delegates or five delegates. You're the one who wins that Congressional district. You get an extra delegate which I know sounds like we're talking crazy matthew. But that's how we're going to decide or nomination if it's close so the viability really thresholds important to explain just for folks. Don't know this right so fifteen percent if you don't get fifteen percent in a given state you get zero delegates state or congressional district. Some states do it by state Senate Inter district like Texas. Okay yes so basically. You've got to get fifteen percent to be eligible for delegates and if you're the only one about fifteen percent then you get all delegates right right so you so the way that works is if a split field is big enough and you've got a bunch of people that are getting fourteen and twelve thirteen. And then there's someone who's got twenty eight percent that person conceivable world in which that person sees all the delegates of say Congressional district even if they're only getting twenty eight percent of the actual raw vote total because all those other people are they're taking their little shares and there are under the viability threshold. Here New Hampshire. The candidates are going to pretty much every town much less county. They did the same thing in Iowa pretty soon to calendar undergoes national you're making your scheduling decisions you resource allocation decisions less your Bloomberg. Then you can spend whatever you want at a very local level based on delegate acquisition position if you're running a smart campaign so that is yeah it gets super and those are big decisions. So if you're only going to be an Alabama or Georgia okay. We're GONNA three times you've got to make those visits count and you gotTa make your spending and your allocation your staff count now the only way to be able to sort of even make those decisions decisions you have to have some sort of funding base that can keep Nationwide Cup campaign operation going right in the case of Saint Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders. They have a big grassroots grassroots fundraising in the case of Joe Biden. Jamie Cobra sure. They're mostly raising money from hard large hard dollar donors and then there's Michael Bloomberg and the Bloomberg question mark is he's just I feel like it's just doesn't there's no precedent for none. There's I mean he's drop three hundred and fifty million dollars. You can drop a billion dollars next week if he wants to. A billion dollars a week after that and a billion dollars we got that and no one knows what that does. We've never seen anything like it. So the one thing I'd say about Bloomberg if you believe national polls he has gone from zero one to fifteen he spent on a Lotta money to get there. The Path from fifteen to thirty though is about fifty times zero to fifteen and so you got the low hanging fruit. which is you're getting in front of people's faces and they're sort of attention because you're buying all these ads but real real big chunk of support you can't just run ads to get right in? A sense is for Bloomberg. He doesn't control his destiny as my view so for him to really get to the point where he's a threat to be the Democratic nominee. I think he needs a Joe. Oh Biden booder judge and Amy Klobuchar to fade right so he becomes a standard otherwise. You're splitting up that left center. Vote to three ways you know we saw it happened in. Sixteen trump didn't start getting over forty percent of the vote pretty deep in the calendar. Now they have winner. Take all but you had Cruz. Rubio casick basic all in the race and Jeb Bush deep into the calendar and they were able and that was sort of a different situation because they have winner take right winner-take-all one of the worries about this set of rules proportionate and it's sort of complicated by congressional districts is that you can end up in situation which just no one actually gets enough to get an outright the majority of the outright number you need to get the nomination so I'll say to. Let's talk about California California. Who the hell knows what's going to happen in California? But there's a scenario aware of give Biden is still in the race and competing and Warren is and Mayor Pitas and claw which are and Bloomberg takes the stage on March third. What if all five of those are getting twelve fourteen? Mm Fifteen Gabbard Yang Star. Get A few. That's like sixty percent of the vote. Sixty five percent vote. So let's say Bernie's that one getting thirty thirty five he could net over one hundred. Delegates gets out of California loan so the question is will so what I'm hearing from you. If you're from a purely analytical perspective there's a universe in which which if you were thinking about the delegate math for Sanders you want that field to stay pretty crowd. Oh Yeah you want a lot of company and I think there's a sense that okay. We Have New Hampshire tomorrow night then Nevada then South Carolina. Then we get the Super Tuesday and then the rest of March like the clock is not just ticking. It's almost midnight really as it relates to the delegates in less basically Bernie and one other candidate. I guess there's a Snook Bernie to carrots or just splitting everything up to your point. Yeah it's possible that we're going to have somebody who doesn't have the majority of pledged delegates. I believe that whoever is for Audi leader unless literally it's a delegator to somebody has a fifty to one hundred. We're really going to take the nomination away from them in Milwaukee the party recovers that for decades. I completely agree with that right. Like if you go into the convention with a plurality lead the idea that convention being sorry sorry thanks for playing. Thanks planning. We're just GONNA into party. Bosses have decided the person who got the most delegates is now nominee like parties. Don't recover from that for a long time. Do you think the the other sort of aspect of this in terms of people staying in the race right when we talk about momentum. It's a kind of weird ephemeral term. But what it really means often in his fundraising right like you need certain performances to then go raise money than stay in for the next week and go up on the air. I mean for folks like say Amy Klobuchar or She's sort of the perfect one because she sort of in this space right now is that you can see the momentum means for her it does but I think it's a faulty metric work we've got donald trump looming he's literally half block down the street bellowing and if he wins a second term. Will we recover from. But I think it's an open question so we need to beat them. So if you do well momentum so you can raise money. But you don't have credible chance to be the Democratic nominee. I think the people have easy for me to save on a campaign. You gotta get off the stage at the end. Let the people who actually can win battle it out because his advantage money technology positioning the field position. His presidency is such an event. Incumbents tend not to lose George H W Bush lost to Bill Clinton but had he treated his campaign more seriously AAC. I don't think he would've. He was awesome the teeth of recession. But even with that you know so I think we have to understand. That trump has the advantages of incumbency. We've never seen somebody with this much money. I mean the the Atlantic story that came out last week about their billion dollar disinformation campaign. Tell people to read the Atlantic. You know you should read it because it's what we're up against. It is sophistication from the digital marketing side. We've never seen in American politics so my view is maybe you have some money. Maybe you can come in third third place get some delegates. If you can't win I would urge the media focus on that who has a credible chance from a delegate standpoint to be the democratic now so what I'm hearing from you is it just just sort of a reality check sense like posting a bunch of twelve or thirteen or fourteen percent performances. Just doesn't particularly the deeper you go does not amount to essentially essentially a credible chance at a delegate leap. It's better than getting four and being in fifth place route. You can feel good when you get out but yeah I mean particularly when we get on March third basically between March third and March seventeenth most of the country votes. Most of the delegates get awarded. So you're not accumulating the number of delegates particularly if you believe there's not going to be brokered convention where somebody who's not the delegate leader can come in on the fifth ballot okay. That's highly unlikely. Yeah I think I'm with you on that. I'm actually glad you said that because I think it sort of an important point David plot.
"hayes" Discussed on All In with Chris Hayes
"Of the senator king the most charitable interpretation. This set of facts is basically that no one takes seriously and everyone's trying to pawn them off on someone else and everyone's everyone's kind of yes. Boston trump about this but this really does. This is the president's personal attorney funneling the very dirt over which he was impeached over Directly Department of Justice. Is that okay. You know. It's not okay. There's a whole structure. There's a State Department Thera MBASSADOR. There's the Department of Justice and the idea that the personal attorney is is doing this kind of work. I thought frankly. One of the most damning pieces of the famous phone call which wasn't perfect Was the mention of Rudy Giuliani. If it was all about corruption generally or about burden-sharing are all the things the White House counsel talked about during the trial. Why did the President say eight to the president of Ukraine talked to Rudy? Talk to Rudy. Giuliani was a great mayor. It's a IT'S A. It's he's on his own mission it doesn't involve US US policy. It doesn't involve the national interest of the United States. It's a it's a political errand as somebody said and And the fact that that he's now being sort of welcomed into the end of the Justice Department is pretty disturbing. Do you had warned about the consequences of an acquittal. Vote against the president particularly in in terms of how he would take that signal and use continue to abuses authority. We've seen him now. Fire Not just Alexander van men who testified hide under subpoena but also his brother and there's been no cause given for why his brother was also marked out of the White House as well as Gordon's Onlin who forced does serve at the pleasure from the president but clearly. It was retribution for his testimony. Now we're seeing Lindsey Graham Dogma Guiliani being touch with Bart what do you make of the first week and a half or so after that acquittal in terms of how it lines up with what your worries are or were about what signaled president would receive. Well I think one of the most worrisome things and in the in the Trial the the president's lawyers kept talking about the elections are the solution are the. Let's wait for the elections. The problem is the offense that was at the heart of this was finagling the election meddling in the election. That's coming up and what bothered me. was that the president has expressed not a whiff of remorse not any indication that he has any idea that he did anything wrong and what that means this. He's liable to keep doing it. I mean there's there's very little likelihood that he feels chastened or somehow You know he'll change his conduct and and we're headed into an election election and he's already said he would welcome help from other countries And this this is now. Let Me Chris let me back up a step up from this. The really worrisome thing about what happened last week is a long term implications because our country is based on the principal of divided power. That's what the constitution is. All about. It puts power all over the place in the Congress in the two houses in the presidency and the states and the the whole idea. The principle is a concentration of power in one set of hands is dangerous and the Congress in my view has been committing omitting kind of slow motion suicide for the past seventy years. We've essentially given up the war power expressly in the constitution for the Congress. We've given up the trade power. The president now you know imposes tariffs on Canada for Lord Sake on our neighbors on his own unilaterally. Last year we let him take money out of out of the appropriations bill that Congress had passed through the proper processes he basically said. I don't like your priorities authorities. I want to build my wall. I'M GONNA take three and a half billion dollars out of yours and put it toward the wall and then last week. We basically said a president can in stonewall Congress entirely in an impeachment proceeding which essentially renders the impeachment clause nullity It just eviscerates it. It and the implication is what about ordinary oversight. The point I'm trying to make is that power is migrating from Congress to the president and last week it didn't migrate it leaped and that's what's really in the long term concerning maybe the president trump won't abuse it. Certainly history is not in. Doesn't reassure us on that front but what about I'm worried about five. Ten Twenty twenty years from now and You know like I say the the framers set up this complicated structure on purpose and by the way presidents aren't grabbing the power. Our congresses advocating it. And this is what bothers me so much about what happened. Last week all right Senator Angus King of the State.
