Jeffrey Toobin on Writing About Trump

"Jeffrey toobin joins us now from northern Connecticut. His latest book is called True Crimes and misdemeanors the investigation of Donald, trump, it's already a New York Times Bestseller Jeff Welcome back to the podcast. It is a pleasure to be here Michelle. Well, we are talking about probably an unpleasant topic you've been covering this regularly for the New, Yorker, talking about it on CNN, the investigations of Donald. Trump plural I think and the impeachment process at what point did you think to yourself? Okay. This should be a book as well. Right at the beginning you know I have a special interest in fun for independent investigations of the presidency. I was one of the prosecutors in the Iran Contra -CATION in the Lawrence Walsh Investigation wrote my first book opening arguments about that did a book about. The Starr investigation of Whitewater Lewinsky in the Clinton years and so I know that the behind the scenes, stories of these investigations are always interesting. But what was a nerve ing as I started in was that I didn't realize that Muller which completely shut down all access I had to trust that eventually, I would get access to the Muller Office, but it was incredibly unnerving journalists to. Spend almost two years working on his side of the investigation really from the outside even though you've written about impeachment, you've written books about investigations. This book feels different and I'm curious to hear your take on what makes this book in the process of writing the book different from those previous books. Trump makes it different? The president is such an enormous figure in American history, his complete disregard. For norms his constant lying his inability or unwillingness to play by rules that Democrats and Republicans have played for all of certainly my conscious life it makes everything about these last three and a half years just feel different from anything I'd ever covered in anything I've ever felt as a citizen we've had conservative presidents. We've had liberal presidents, but we've never had a president like trump and. Both he as a protagonist in my story and the people who gravitate to him just make it totally different. Okay. Here's one way in which it feels different to me and I'm curious to hear your take and it's about trump but it's also about the reception of trump among Americans or certain group of Americans and it's that every single time there are some kind of event trump takes. Some action that seems to be a game changer. There's this expectation or there has been the expectation. Okay. Well, now, this is the end of this changes things, and that goes back to his not filing his tax returns during the campaign, but then I think the next point was with access Hollywood tapes and it's been that way ever since where where something will happen and people will say. Well now, that's it. You know there's gotTa be a consequence and then there really isn't a consequence I. Think you're right in part I mean you know and and you can go through others whether it was praising the white supremacists in Charlottesville standing by Vladimir Putin, in Helsinki, and disparaging the American intelligence agencies firing James Comey which seemed like complete departures from how we expect presidents to behave. Another theme of my journalistic career has been the evolution of the Republican Party that if you go back to Richard Nixon the turning point in Watergate was when seven Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee voted in favor of impeachment and then ultimately Barry Goldwater Hugh Scott John Rhodes went to Nixon and say we can't support you anymore those three famous Republicans The Republican Party has turned into a trump call. And the ability of the president to do absolutely anything no matter how outrageous and retain the support of that forty percent of the country. Is. Something we've never seen before it's been building through the past couple of decades, but I think that's what accounts for the phenomenon you describe, which is no matter what he does the the political architecture of our time really never changes anymore because fifty five percent of the people are appalled forty forty percent of the people stick with trump and thus we have the election we have. So you're saying it's essentially the fact that he's not held. Accountable is a result of the fact that the party has sort of been entirely captured by trump. He has captive and very loyal audience among Americans, and then presumably the other arm of that is what's happened with the media and that certain is catering to and delivering that message. I. Can just add one thing. You know a lot of people like what trump is doing. It's not like this forty percent says, well, you know it's bad that he fires Komai. It's bad that he says, all these races. Thanks their gladis says racist things. I. Mean there are a lot of people in the country who have the same attitudes and I think that's what's chilling for people like me who was. I like to think is not a racist, but the way trump behaves in public it's a feature, not a bug people don't support him in spite of his excesses they support him because it's

No country for face masks: Nordics brush off mouth covers

"The AFP. Nordics brushoff mouth covers Stockholm as most of the world either orders or recommends the use of facemask swith even US President Donald Trump, seen one nordic nations are remaining hold-outs in supermarkets on buses along with the streets of capitals, such a Stockholm Copenhagen Oslo Helsinki, and Reykjavik. That's the Nordic nations. Face masks are a rare sight worn only by a small minority many of whom are tourists according to a recent survey by YouGov only five to ten percent of respondents in Nordic countries said they used masks in public settings figure that has remained stable since the start of the crisis in March. and. Yeah I. Mean You know I I think that what I would like to see as we walk out of this as masks for. Sort of for people who want to wear them specifically for people who? Aren't feeling really super great that day maybe maybe today's good data wear a mask and not fill the era with whatever you've gotten sometimes, I don't feel good when you get up I. would certainly be railing against the idea if if someone was like, no, we as the government have decided that we need to have heard immunity as quickly as possible. Therefore, we are forbidding masks offer bidding people to wear them or for them to be made or for them to be distributed I, would be railing against that kind of also be a non issue for sick people if it was the social norm that you don't have to go places when you're sick, right I think that that's Know the first thing is that we have to get rid of whatever that idea was. That was going on in the parents of in the ideas of the heads of my parents when I was a kid. Came from a family admittedly, you know the sort of Lutheran Calvin est kind of cut from that cloth where. You could stand you went to work. Suffering is good for your soul that kind of thing, and I got at least half of the Times throughout the thirteen years that I went to school perfect attendance. They'll that is is a declaration that I made people ill. I mean. You there shouldn't be an award for perfect attendance at school. What that says is that you've made poor choices to my mind. So does your parents have made poor choices because they're not talking about college talking about underage people understood but I, and again I'm not an opposing to hang. You know anybody for this. I'm just saying, Hey, we need to stop and think about this. 'cause only recently in the relatively recent past the last couple of decades or something have I heard people talking about you shouldn't go to work or school if you're sick. Actually. I was hearing the opposite when I was young. And so let's go on. That's a move in the right direction. At the same time, the corresponding figures have risen between seventy and eighty percent for most of the other twenty, eight polled including India and the United. States. So that's people wearing masks. Going up to seventy and eighty percent. I have the impression that if the government doesn't say clearly, we advise you to wear a mask nobody will twenty one year old French. Student Camille four to know of Fortuna Rowley told the F. adding that she was shocked to see how rare masks were in Stockholm. Bridget Y DEL sixty three year old pensioner told AFP that she would have preferred if Sweden's authorities recommended masks at least on public transport, but she added that she would keep going without one unless there was a shift in official policy not only she wants you to take care of her health. She doesn't have a car as an adult and she also doesn't intend to where mask until everybody else does. So. I found a couple of graphs which are not exactly easy to talk about verbally but I mean, tell me what you when you look at the graph tell me what you think of. Here's. So this is a daily new confirmed Kovic nineteen deaths and I think the the confirmed part is a very interesting thing because you can think this was covid nineteen you can say it but like to confirm it is a little more solid Canada Okay So you've got the line for America which okay. It shoots up at the beginning and starts to round off a bit and then just sort of goes over to the right and wavers a bit and doesn't really fall that that that low. Now you've got Sweden which it goes up and then it tapers down and down and down, and then it just crashes at the end. So at the very end we're pretty much where we started and they're zero. Like, they're down to zero confirmed covid nineteen deaths now, and this is the country that had the least amount of government regulations and requirements. They're like, Hey, here's what we advise be smart about this be considerate. Fair what is the age. Difference though. The. Democrat shoulder. Oh Yeah. There's a lot of old people in Sweden. So here are the White Gal sixty, nine years old says if they don't if they don't I will not wear it because nobody else does. Martin Spoil Wrong fifty year old businessman said that he would follow government recommendations. If they tell us, we don't need masks we don't wear them. Sweden has received global attention for softer approach to curbing the spread of the virus which coupled with relatively higher death toll has led to the region's largest country being shunned by its neighbors, but when it comes historically about minding their business. But when it comes to masks, the Northeast Nordic nations look staunchly united. So except for Sweden, there are a few cases in those countries KK Chang Epidemiologist University of Birmingham since two for applied health research told AF pay. So I don't blame them for not doing it as long as they have reasonable social distancing and contact tracing has been done properly. Was We to do that? Asked Tuesday what long as you're being spied on I'm okay with it. Yeah. what might change his mind on recommending the use of facemask. Sweden's chief epidemiologist Anders Tangle said that he's still waiting for some of the proof that they're -FFECTIVE So what a novel concept? Portraying some logic questionable I. think it's wrong a responsible and it's stubborn. The epidemiologists said if he's wrong, it cost life. If I'm wrong. What harm does it do? The epidemiologists says there's no harm to wearing masks so we should all wear them I'm not entirely sure that that's true. And I mean. Okay. So there's there's the direct physical health oriented harm that he's talking about. Okay. Well, we've we've discussed some of the issues with that. You've got your mask mouth you've got one of the things that bothers the most bothers me the most is not seeing people's faces actually really bad for your immune system epidemiologist should know bacteria grows in wet damp dark places you would think well, right now they're looking to covert and they're not looking at much else. They're certainly not looking at dental issues and even just looking at cove it. Okay. Let's let's assume. That nothing else exists this is the only thing that means any of our attention. Okay. Viruses need cells to procreate. That's what they are. That's how they work. Now, if you have a multicellular organism, it has defenses it has t cells that will attack the virus and will attack cells that have been infected with the virus. So what what it wants is bacteria to eat that's that's what it means. It means defenseless little single celled organisms so that it can get in procreate and explode. That's what they do. So if you make more bacteria if you well, if you create this environmentally. Rich you will get a lot of viruses I get the idea but wouldn't we be seeing more many more cases and deaths and all these sorts of things going on in countries where mass compliance is significantly higher if that's the case no ours covert isn't. Necessarily, because Kobe isn't all that deadly except to people who are already very fragile.

What It Was Like to Interview Shima Oliaee

"Hello and welcome to fight podcasting the show in which. Discuss their craft I'm your host Sky Pillsbury. This is a post show episode in which two very special guests will talk to me about last week's episode in which I interviewed Dolly Pardons America producer. Mo only if you haven't heard that episode, I recommend going back and listening to it before you listen to this one that way, our conversation may make a little bit more sense. Today on the show I have with me, the two people most likely to remember my obsession with Dolly Parton. My wonderful parents welcome to the show, mom and Dad Hey. Hi there. Thank you so much for saying yes. Welcome On this kind of show you guys get to ask me questions. I have the first question here ready to go all right dad. Right. Do you feel a part of dollars America? That is a really good question Yes, I think am I mean I must be one hundred percent because I'm a fan, so I think by default that makes me part of her America, because you know I know who she is. I adore her like so many others. Of course that begs the question like what is Dolly, Parton America, and I think one of the points that she made in last week's episode was that Dolly is sort of this prison for everyone else's story? And I'm not sure that I have a particular story to tell but I think that the aura surrounding Dolly is sort of like. Everyone can be part of it. No matter what walk of life you come from and so I guess in that regard. Be Part of Dolly Parton America. She talked about the feelings of otherness enduring during her show. Do you resonate with that at all? I probably don't if I'm being really honest and. That's because I am very privileged in my life, so you know I am female. I'm white. I've had opportunities that many many people don't get to have. I went to college. I got a good job after college. I sort of did the things that I expected I would do. Thus far in my life. But I think that the way that I can relate with that was what Shima said about how she and Chad are both first generation Americans and you are a first generation American, Dad. And so you know what it made me think, and even in the show, because during the show Jad talks about how her dollies Tennessee Mountain home, reminds his father of his home. Overseas, you know of course I couldn't help but think about our family home in northern Finland, so of course I thought about like the listener. Any listener to this doesn't know is that I grew up going to Finland with you every summer and you know spending many many many many days. Not Whole Lot to do kind of like the countryside of Finland in this tiny town with a population of eight hundred people, where almost no one spoke English, and then of course I would spend a lot of time in Helsinki as well where people did, but you know I remember the excitement that I had the day that you got your citizenship when we were living in Hawaii. I remember you wore a suit and that was a big deal because you were is most of the time. So. You know I remember that feeling, but I don't ever feel I can't say that I ever felt other, but I. Think I knew that you at times felt authored. What about you? Well I guess what I was wondering about is. Dolly is also a what I would call a country girl. you got to know people who were definitely from the country, not from the city. That's true. Maybe I speculate that that may have had something to do with your level of comfort with Dali. Oh. That's interesting. Also expressed some interest in Loretta Lynn during that time. I loved Laura Adeline and I think I I remember i. read the Book About Her. Was the book called? Coal, miner's daughter, I don't know. I did identify with those two, but I don't know I can't like point to a memory where I connected those two things myself. You Know My love for them like I. Really Loved Donna Summer at the same time. She's not from the country and I think honestly I think. They spoke to my infatuation with Glamour, and even though I knew that they were from the country. It's sort of like they were like these unimaginable. Creatures all three of those women. They were like such a shiny thing, and then I love the music and I love to dance, but I think that I always had an interest in people who are different than me, and that's why like when we were in the countryside in Finland like I could hang out with Vinnie me. Who is the violin player? You know for hours or make friends with the girl who lived across the street Rita, even though we. We didn't speak the same language, and like really enjoy those people because it was like exposing me to this completely different way of life. You know just a way of life that I wasn't familiar with and I think that in a way Dali Donna. It sort of showed me a completely different slice of

"One of the lauwers photography at least for me is the doors can open. Being photographer has provided me access to people and communities that I might never have considered otherwise the combination of a camera and my curiosity has gifted me with meeting fascinating people and entering their world and many times. Those encounters have been especial- to me as the photographs at created. Chris suspects photography is all about that. His explorations of subcultures in the areas of music and sexuality have resulted in images. That are raw an intimate. His latest book leather boys gathers images of a segment of the gay community in and around the DC area. The story of how he gained access and his process over the years provide some valuable information for anyone taking on a long-term personal project regardless of the World. They are hoping to explore this. Is your body an ex and welcome back to the candidate frame and it was good to see. It's been a long time yet. Has I'm trying to think I guess the last time I saw you This past summer at focus on the story Ryan. I'm looking forward to talking to you. We met a couple of years back. And you're always been on my radar but it's just like as with as with so many people who I put down on my list sometimes years before I finally get them on the show but I'm glad we're funding hearing chance to sit down and chat. I do want to remind you ever. I've been on candid frame before. Are you on the panel? Yeah Yeah at Miami Straight Photography Festival but I think about it in terms of one to one conversations. Sure Yeah I had just a taste now. I get the full meal I guess. Okay okay scared me for a bit getting ready but no comment background. I found out that he come from a family. Did A lot of traveling. Your Dad was a diplomat. You were born in the Philippines. That is that is correct. I was actually adopted in the Philippines. Which is interesting and I'm definitely not Filipino. So yeah was adopted there. My family was with the State Department and my dad travel to various countries around the world. All the way up through the end of my college experience. So I've lived in Thailand Denmark Moscow London and then visited various countries for like a month or a week or whatever the entire time. Did you have any any idea in terms of your birth be? We have information get to you so I actually. When my dad passed away a couple years ago she left that to me. But I still haven't looked at it weren't well I you know. Part of it is is. My parents were my parents. I've felt adopted or not. You know it was just something. I don't know man should ask my my therapist about that but I just haven't I haven't really like I feel like I don't want to give up on. The idea of my parents are my real parents because they adopted me. And that's who cared for me you know. I'm a little scared to find out who my real parents are. What if there is life changing information there? You know who knows yeah? That's fascinating especially the fact that it's just sitting in a letter somewhere. That's well it's not. It's not just a letter. It's a whole packet with a bunch of official documents and stuff so so doing all this traveling. How did he sort of color? Your perspective in terms of when you finally came in critter life yourself here in the in the states. Well I have to say that little funny story about my first time that I remember in the United States was coming back for first grade and I could speak Danish better than it could speak English and I was held back a grade because my English language skills were not that good and then from there. I went to Thailand. I believe you know from there. I went to Moscow. Actually so I have I think a more of a kind of a like a world view of and I was friends a people of all different kinds of cultures classes races. What have you I would say was a very wholesome upbringing in terms of Having kind of a global perspective and in your early twenties you're part of a of a of a punk band music start becoming occurred of your early life so that's another a funny story I remember being in Moscow and I guess the sex pistols had come out. And this is I. Think nineteen seventy six and I guess there was a article in the New York Times or The Washington Post because we used to get that at the embassy in Moscow Mama's reading about it and she's like Chris. You wouldn't listen to that stuff would you and then and then on our First trip our trip to Helsinki Finland. We got to go to a record store in the first album. Picked up was was a clash album. Actually I didn't WanNA bring home a sex pistols but I'd done a little bit of kind of asking around the embassy like what did some of the other punk bands picked up a clash in devo album and ever since then I was kinda hooked but because I was traveling and nobody I knew played an instrument. I didn't even play an instrument and it wasn't until I got to college that I met up with some people that played instruments like one of my roommates play guitar. Who's really good? He's still actually playing today on the Jam Band Circuit and anyway so one night. We're hanging out late. It leaves the house and they're like hey play the space and I'm like I don't even know what to do. There's like follow the dots man and so I just followed what they were doing with their hands. And then I was like you. Know the hippy. Music is okay. But I'm really into punk rock. And then when I've moved back to DC after college I met up with some of the former members of the band scream. I don't scream was a big discord banned. They were banned. I really enjoyed in high school early college. And that's the band where David Grohl came from and so this is some of the other members one of the other members from scream their original drummer before girl was in the span. It was like man. This guy's awesome. I get to play with him. And that's basically how I jumped into that in. How long were you into? I played in punk bands from ninety three to two thousand and on. I'm still playing in my neighborhood so I've just been continuing that I still I still. I still play a little bit in a Plano. Reggae DUB reggae band in my in my neighborhood but I was playing. I started my own record label. I put out like twenty plus CDs with international distribution all around the world toward all over the the. Us many times so yeah. I like to travel see new places. Meeting people were using a camera. Did you document those times? Not at all? It wasn't until the birth of my son that I got a camera and that was because of my wife she was like we need to get a camera and at that time it was like I don't know if we can afford it and whatever so I got a cannon power shot and this this had been like two thousand six or so. My son was born in two thousand and five so it was a little bit after that. We we still. I think the I felt. We had the IPHONE camera which is like we need a better camera so and then are basically read the manual and then I went out just shooting around my neighborhood or wherever. Just kinda figure out figuring out all the settings and that's where I figured out like what motion blur could do and stuff like that shutter drag and that was really cool and the entire throughout my entire punk rock career. I was always going into the library or on the Internet. You later in the late nineties to find just kind of like raw images to use for flyers and that's how I kind of discovered who who we g was and Dion rbis and stuff. I didn't really look at them through photographers. I was looking more through a punk rockers. I like going. You know what? What are the photos that kind of excite me or that are weird a different? That will look really good on a flyer in peak people's interest and so I spent a lot of time in the Arlington County Public Library in their photo book section. Just kinda going through trying to find stuff and yeah and so. That's kind of so I had my and I even bought like some photo books to just to use for flyers so wasn't until I actually started work in a cameras. Like hey man I could probably make photos like those guys did in those books.

Winter Is Coming: Why Vladimir Putin and the Enemies of the Free World Must Be Stopped

"As we discussed before the break one belief that came from that House Intelligence Committee meeting is that Putin has if not actively aided the president's reelection schone preference for him today in response to the reports in that briefing. The White House told CNN that quote no one has been tougher on Russia than this administration. Joining me Gary Kasparov Former World Chess Champion. Russian for Democracy leader and Chairman of the Human Rights Foundation. He's also the author of the book. Winter is coming by Vladimir Putin in the enemies of the free world must be stopped so senior. Fbi officials saying today that Russia's goals essentially to to watch US tear ourselves apart. Do Sound absolutely accuracy. Absolutely spreading chaos. That was Putin's goal not only in America it's it's across Europe. You could seem equally supporting far far left. Making shoot center is decimated and again every country looks like a house divided. So that's what he's looking for because he's afraid that was American leadership The free world united against US aggression in in in Europe And it's especially stupid. Neither Putin trump to be reelected because putting himself standing next to trumpet Helsinki so he made no secret that he wanted to in two thousand sixteen and he made no secret that he wanted. He wanted to see once trump to be re-elected. Because it's still just for what trump does but it's probably more for what from doesn't do so he doesn't talk about rights doesn't what democracy he doesn't forced to the alliance's a Whiz with traditional America. Exactly that's makes no free will. It's interesting though the idea of the idea that you could be through disinformation or whatever it may be or election interference pushing trump but also pushing Bernie sanders. Your the idea of the center is the enemy that he's he basically trying to support the various sides of the spectrum. Coordinating the efforts. Because if you see this this what's happening now on conservative media it somewhat reflection. What's happened in two thousand six liberal media ignoring trump because many people believe that trump would be ideal opponent for Hillary bit? Now Fox just has a moratorium on summers. It's amazing it's self declared socialist and he's just not on the radar but at the same time if you followed from speeches like in Davos at welcoming four or his State of the Union while he brought wider. It's it's the President Obama's well so I so it's clearly shows that he's prepared he's competing shaping it against some there's so and of course. Putin beliefs share these beliefs trump. That sounds could be ideal candidate to go after. Don't forget some. Those made many statements supporting Soviet Union here in America. Imagine what send the sounders that time Mayor Saunders could have set in the Soviet Union bag there when he was just wanted to please his hosts and I have no doubt that if he said something incriminating Lattimore Putin hesitant files. I mean the statement that he made publicly about youth programs in the former here. But it's not the eating and drinking their union he could be more open about praising Soviet Union and I have no doubt that it's really just you know piled in the White House ready to go when or if it is remarkable that we now talk out of the White House having purges of officials who are not toeing the line again it is reminiscent of you know you think of the word purges you think. Soviet Union I hate telling you a said so many times. Now it's it's it's it's not just you know solve one problem at the time. I mean firing the head of these. These agency said legend. Let's understand at the hearings that Russia was interfering. It's not just simply no putting trump's man on top of the trump's lackey on top of organization but ascending message across the board the entire or exactly. You go gas me. That's going to happen. Same happened with Alexander Whitman. Everybody talked about him being fired. But it's more important. What trump did to his twin brother? He was removed. That's a message you if you do something. I will go off the family. That's that's that's that's from classical books you know that's reporter. Godfather dictatorships and mafia bosses do to protect their interests. They go off to the family. They're making less now reporting about today to of potentially anybody who they think is disloyal to be purged out it's weakening they would call the deep state but exactly because less people are just in powerful positions. More power is concentrated in hand in a circle and and it will be dictatorship himself. And let's imagine prompted has been doing it now in election year if he got forbid his reelected he will have no more constraints. And that's what Putin Putin is betting on its remember. Maria Vich the former American Basseterre to Ukraine. Who who was removed she talked about the State Department being hollowed out from the inside which is a terrifying idea. It's sort of you don't even notice it from the outside but inside it's been record number of positions in these in the state in in defense in many other ages intelligence agencies that are not being field because again less people are just miss positions.

Can Taking Zinc Help Shorten Your Cold?

"So we are right in the middle of cold and flu season and Alison as our consumer health aficionado. Let's start with talking about how to reduce the likelihood of getting a cold. Okay there's our shortwave favorite which washing your hands and you know mattie not everybody who gets exposed to cold actually get sick when they've done these studies where they take a rhinovirus and they stick it up people's noses and they see who gets sick and who doesn't they find that people who've slept less than six hours are about twice as likely to get sick when exposed to this cold virus as compared to people who've slept more so sleep is really important High stress has been shown to increase the likelihood and a lack of exercise has also been shown to make you more susceptible. I feel like you just targeted me with the high stress. I am not here to wag my finger at you or anyone else because at a certain point look we all get a cold. Typically adults in the. Us get about two to three colds a year. And when you do get a cold there is something you can do to put yourself out of so much misery. One method people swear by is zinc. That's right it's a mineral found in trace amounts in a lot of the foods that we eat our bodies need zinc to function optimally. In fact it's considered an essential mineral and boosting the amount of zinc. You get during a cold by sucking on zinc. Lozenges is actually shown a bunch of studies to help shorten the length of the common cold but only in certain situations and there are a lot of caveats so today on the show zinc an essential mineral and a cold remedy. We'll talk about when it works and when it doesn't Okay Alison we're talking about zinc and whether or not it helps shorten the length of a cold and there's a story behind that question that starts in the nineteen sixties. Yup that's right that is when a young physician named a Nanda persad studied a group of young Egyptian men who were completely deficient in zinc. Now these young men suffered from stunting. They hadn't grown to a normal height or developed normally in other ways and this is because they had very limited diets. They ate a lot of bread. That was hind phosphate. And that can actually block the absorption of zinc. Now skip ahead. Prasada is now ninety. One years old. He is still an active researcher at Wayne State University in Detroit and. He told me that when he gave these young men zinc. Something really remarkable happened. The grew at the rate of five to six inches in height the first two years so it was. What is a molecule remarkable? Change that occurred after supplementation. When you first documented this what was your you must have been ecstatic. Y- well actually the first patient re gives zinc and his other two couldn't believe it because I thought that the growth phenomena will be shut off after the age of eighteen and nothing will happen to anybody but that was not the case. So does that mean that. We all need to grow right well. We all do need zinc for optimal health. It doesn't work like a growth hormone and here in wealthier nations. It's completely possible to get enough zinc in your regular diet. But back in the nineteen sixties. The role of zinc was not at all understood. I mean people thought persad was crazy for just suggesting that zinc deficiency can do this but he ignored all those people who are skeptics. He just kept pressing on. He became really just kind of obsessed with getting to the bottom of how zinc work in the body. And so after he documented the growth in these young men. He threw himself into further studies. He really laid the groundwork by showing that zinc influences immunity he theorized that zinc works as an anti inflammatory agent and then over the course of a couple of decades persad and other scientists have shown that up to three hundred enzymes requires zinc for their activation or stability of their structure. Right like enzymes that you would even be familiar with like alcohol. Dehydrogenation rolls right up the Tong Yung. But importantly breaks down all that beer and wine. You drink the alcohol right right exactly but keep in mind. It took decades to show this. I mean lots of scientists completely questioned persad findings but eventually in nineteen seventy four. The National Academy of Sciences declared zinc an essential mineral for human health and they established recommended daily intake level. What is that Level Alison? Because now I'm a little worried about my zinc levels. Prepare well public. Health officials say that adult men need about eleven milligrams of zinc per day. Women about eight milligrams so let me help you figure this out. If you ate a three ounce beef chuck rose you'd get about seven milligrams so red meat can be quite high. That's close to a day's amount. A Half Cup of beings will get you about three milligrams. Pumpkin seeds a single ounce provides two point two milligrams so that's a good source and then there are lots of cereal grains that are fortified with zinc. Right that's why I eat a bowl of cereal every night. Eleven PM for my zinc. That's right you are clearly not zinc division. Here's a fun fact. Wasters have more zinc per serving than any other food. They contain seventy four milligrams per three serving. That feels like too much now overall. We shouldn't laugh. I mean overall here in North America overt zinc deficiency is pretty uncommon. But let me get back to the story of Dr Prasada and his discovery is now these zinc guidelines were first put into effect in nineteen seventy four and once. That happened. Persad began to wonder since he knew that zinc had an effect on immunity. Weather's zinc supplements might help to shorten the duration and symptoms of a common cold. And I should say that he kinda came at this from what he had realized back in Egypt. He's seeing that. A lot of these deficient men died early from infections. So his guests was that yes zinc lo and behold probably did play this role and immunity. Now it's known for instance that the body requires zinc to develop an activate t lymphocytes those. They're like protect you viruses and tae exactly that come out to protect you. They're the type of white blood cell. That is a key part of the immune system so this was all kind of in the back of his mind. He wanted to test out. Whether these zinc supplements might help shorten the cold so he collaborated with a scientist fellow. Scientists named Tom Fitzgerald at the University of Michigan. I talked to Fitzgerald and he told me what when Persad I gave him this theory. He was pretty skeptical. Got Admit when I first heard this I I actually told us a research assistant i. I think he's losing it. I was he so skeptical other than just being a scientist right. Exactly you know. I guess he was skeptical. That something as basic as a mineral would be powerful enough on its own to alter immune function which is a good level of skepticism. But he did agree to do the study. They recruited a whole bunch of people in Detroit. Who had colds? They gave them zinc lozenges made by a pharmacist. It was a double blind placebo controlled trials that means that neither the participants nor the researchers knew who was getting the real thing and who was getting the Placebo. And here's what they found long behold when I did in Dallas it indeed did shorten common cold symptoms by about two or three days and I gotTa Admit. I was stunned by that result. Two or three days isn't nothing now not at all when you think about. How many lost work and schooldays there are just because of cold symptoms that significant absolutely and then several other studies have confirmed these findings. I talked to another scientist. His name is Harry. Pamela of the University of Helsinki in Finland he published a sort of Meta analysis that reviewed a bunch of the studies and says bottom line here is low doses of zinc lozenges. Don't work you gotTa take about eighty to ninety milligrams a day of zinc at the onset of a cold that has been shown to help shorten it and he says he now uses zinc when he the cold coming on himself though. I'm also encouraging my patients to try zinc but Usually I am encouraging only if the common cold has been lost in for a day or something like that so he saying only within the first day that's right because if you don't catch it at the beginning you can't really halt the progression. It doesn't work okay so if you're taking zinc at the beginning of a cold it has to be within the first twenty four hours. That's what the studies have shown. Okay but here is another caveat and it's a pretty big one if you go to the drugstore right now and you find a zinc product. A lot of what you'll find are these multi ingredient products with a whole bunch of other ingredients. You've probably never heard of before. Be Aware that a lot of ingredients can undercut the effectiveness for instance. Some of them contain citric acid which actually binds with the zinc and makes it completely ineffective. So you're basically saying you've got to take it early. You've got to take at least eighty to ninety milligrams and avoid stuff with citric acid. That's right and as the consumer health reporter here I want to be able to say. Go out and buy this product. Unfortunately I can't do that because the lozenges used in the clinical trial. Those are not commercially available. And here's the deal. A LOTTA TIMES MANUFACTURERS CHANGE THEIR INGREDIENTS. They changed dosing. It's hard to make a solid recommendation about a product. Just basically have to do your homework. You gotta be aware that you need certain dose and that you don't want all these other ingredients think it's more what you can feel assured of is that there's science behind the idea that yes zinc can help shorten a cold. Would you be comfortable saying? Hey go out there and eat a couple of years. You know if you're seafood lover absolutely go. Enjoy some wasters. I can't tell you whether or not they're an aphrodisiac but I can tell you. They've got plenty of zinc

"The other thing that makes me and Chris. which is the CO founder? Like Chris Barnes excited about tractive stories of the buyer and I'm and different things but we So we we got really excited about him Somebody mentioned it to me like as a possibility in the beginning of dismissed it but the next playing with like actually no. There's something years like voices. Human Metro thing to teach really people like people. Don't hope say things. Obviously the advice doesn't always reply the right way but I think if there's a potential here to do something like very metros I kind of reminds the evoque this beginning of mobile beginning of facebook games like Nfl You can do start telling here obviously when you say something when the wind goes through your pipes it means a little bit more than if you just type it or something like the weird cultural thing such I felt there was like a combination of both good business opportunity because his vice a CR- growing like crazy and and I know they cheap so you know the are where you need like a you know. Whatever expensive headsets tried out like the zoo and so keep to get the right? That's right and so they're very. That's one reason why they're exploding on the but also this idea that you know voice entertainment. It's kind of new. There hasn't been a lot done in that area because the tech wasn't good enough so I think there's some creative. Yeah it's true like nobody knows what best game is like. It goes like we. We have been very little so I felt like it was both like a good business opportunity but also good creative opportunity pretending so. That's kind of why we start. The company said okay. Let's go folks on that So the first game gortex which I like it was actually on Alexa? Release Tober UH twenty eighteen. We we did just increase like we kind of paid ourselves. We hired contractors. And you know the game name Just to just to see for ourselves. What the market was like his is actually a fan? You know how it is bound on like how. How do we get people to find? Find the game like how how. How does the whole thing work right? So we visit game Yeah like pretty good reception Fourche for reviews with on average with you know like a thousands of reviews they. It's reasonably popular game platform. So we're Kinda happy with that and then we decided to go all in and then we got some. Investors Awesome actually raised the Round last year at both Kgo participated around and Yes so based on that we took the money grew the team. So now we're ten people. Well is facing Portugal. Well yes I guess that when it once company company sumptious with kind expensive. I mean it's great if you were you know facebook Google apple but if you're like a small guy trying something new that you don't know who's going to work it's Kinda Kinda risky mortgage costs and health insurance costs and like everything's expensive lease for the office or you know everything is way more expensive right. Yes I think We looked at a bunch of different places in Europe. ended up in Portugal. I think there's a mix of It's not the most like gaming and like the bees gaming hub in Europe. Opposite like London and Stockholm Helsinki Berlin Barcelona displaced more developing games. But nobody knows what they're doing. Voice Games right so they can go go out in London. Hire ten voice specialists because they don't really exist so I felt like the talent pool. Here's pretty good than I speak English. I mentioned from just local language can go to the office and have less less of a harder time than the other foreigners as I felt like it was a good approach and yeah so we did that last year. We're going to start a company and that the funding and Yeah now are we good. A team released a second game last year in walk up to go in October and skull. The three percent challenge those any partnership at flicks. It's based on an athlete's Shoko two percent. I've watched it always didn't go yet. Yeah so we kind of how it happened like through a friend come on I met Bianca. which is the lead actress and She was really excited about doing something gain in. And I'm like wow enough to present this actually pre because it's salad tests and challenges. We gotta go when and now the other thing we wanted was to get a game that allows us to do some sort of multiplayer competition Two percent kind of fits dead dead and also we wanted to do tests differ mechanics because our first game was more like a traditional attractive starring. We want it's gotTa test different things on the second on a we. We felt like he would also fit those. Their ability to make different types of challenge. Steady could play Such different types of mechanics if they're gonNA work so we have seen different type hiking games inside on top of having that interactive story that he'd talk and get an answer a new kind of choose. What what you want at Cetera or to gain seines pains accordingly? We also have these kind of multiplayer role where you you play this new challenges and again a score. There's a weekly did aboard Yes it it does kind of things wanted to push with. It's great that's great. Wow you've done a lot and these games are pretty cool.

Berlin plan for €1 per day public transport ticket stirs up controversy

"To an issue that cities around the world has struggled Goldway for years to persuade more people to leave their cars at home and use public transport instead in Berlin. Some politicians are now backing a plan that would see the cost transport in the city fall to just one euro a day. This would effectively half the current cheapest annual cost of traveling and not. Everyone's a fan joining me in the studio is Andrew Talk. Who of course is the editor monocle? Also present monocle twenty four urban own pay per andrew. This sounds fantastic. One Euro a day to travel around a major European city but the first thing that occurs to you is that presumably cops by quite a law the amount of money that's going into your transport system the so many things things suddenly become complicated as you say I G- large thing. How incredible this would revolutionized how people around the city it would make everyone these cars ause at home and they would jump on public transport? There is the problem investment which is accu- and many of the city's have looked. This is not just Berlin. Where there are concerns in Helsinki? They did research about whether they should allow people to travel for free on their own. They're public transport and they decided against it. They decided even in against doing drastic cuts. What they found was when they look to other cities which brought in similar policies is that I will people people who drive still drive but what you do which is oddly? More dangerous in Amman widely more annoying is that many people who have taken can the decision for cost reasons to cycle every day or to walk. Think I'm like well. This is pointless I might as well get on the public transport so unless unless you have a a an incredible infrastructure that can cope with a large rise in numbers. You overwhelm the system of so. Many cities just found that that public transport was just a little less pleasurable to go on an. It just didn't work in the ways they anticipated is painted. I mean obviously it's anecdotal the friends of mine in London who dry rather than US probably transport very rarely talk about the cost. Even though transplant in London he's actually quite expensive. Compared Patrick cities they talk about reliability. They talk about they. They come for the risk of being late for work three times a week and it's incredibly uncomfortable and I can't get a seat and those of the reasons they drive and you can't improve those things without spending on infrastructure. No and and the other interesting thing is that to your point is that we imagine that you the car works. which is his affordable public transport but as the stick with unfortunate car drivers? You need to make it incredibly expensive to come come into the city. You need to remove places for people to park needs make their life difficult. You just slow down traffic. Those are the things that have nudged behavior savior in most cities for example. If you Paris moment that they're seeing year on year decline in the number of people who are done drive in in the city but have a aw in that possession. The reason for that is the on on Hidalgo. They have really kind of gone off to the car driver and anecdotes again. Some people telling me of an evening between Five o'clock and seven o'clock some thirty percent of people driving parents are looking for somewhere to park. That's that's what she's done to the city and that's the frustration that Ma- that makes me say Joa. I'm not going to be generation corona. I'm going to give up on this and you're seeing it in the strikes now the number of people who you can't get around by car because the city has seized up so the move to walking and cycling is great and again people can't jump on protons because it's not there so how'd you judge people between all of these behaviors. Free Public Transport isn't a solution on. Its own you have to look at all these behavioral consequences consequences that occur around just interesting there are two places Talon In Estonia and Luxembourg is coming up as well that making all public transport. Completely the free. So you won't have to pay a penny but they have smaller populations less stressed by people jumping on the on the bus. The difficult is the politics of it that politically typically. It's it's quite easy to say I'm GONNA public transport free politically. It's quite hard to say to people in your city. I'm going to make your life miserable. You give up the car. Although on on I guess is on the left. There's always been a belief that taxation works in that you. If you raise money you can have better services and and you are on the right. They believe as the coalition more around the the the green parties who thing I is. You just need to do everything to get people onto that public transport but as I said if you then have to. You don't see a decline in the number of people in that 'cause then isn't isn't an immediate success etretat thanks very

Impeachment trial: House managers push for witnesses

"Right now lawmakers are taking a break Senate stands in recess they spent much of the morning hearing from house impeachment managers of people like house intelligence house intelligence committee chairman Adam Schiff also congressman chasing crow of Colorado and Akeem Jeffries Democrat from New York they talked about the two articles of impeachment they're winding down on the first which is abuse of power to Davis can you talk a little bit about one or two of the points they made a little along those lines in in terms of the abuse of power charge in the piece of power well I think what she was trying to do today I mean the first two days of this of these arguments Democrats laid out a very meticulous timeline of what happened to the key players were and what and what was wrong about it today was really I think that it time to hit the sort of constitutional high notes what are the bigger constitutional progress here what are the bigger at national security questions and I think Adam Schiff in his closing arguments sort of pulled no punches this was his last best case to make and it was really striking to hear him not just talk about the articles of impeachment and what's outlined in the July twenty fifth phone call but to go back to things like president trump's comments standing next to Vladimir Putin in Helsinki when he questioned intelligence US intelligence about Russian influence in trying to hack the twenty sixteen election I think we have that moment hold on one second he's promoting this cookie crazy server theory cooked up by the Kremlin right next to the guy the cooked up it's a breathtaking success of Russian intelligence I don't know if there's ever been a greater success of Russian intelligence whatever profile Russia did of our president boy did they have him spot on the kind of evokes the days of the Miller report what what do you think she was trying to do here is focusing so intently on trump's relationship with Russia I think he was trying to make a broader case that the president is a threat to the country and that his argument here is that if you have a president that welcomes foreign interference and then also has a president that seeks it out to benefit himself over the national interest which is the case the Democrats have been trying to make then that is the most impeachable offense because once a day elections in a democracy are in question that's sort of the whole ballgame right so I thought his rhetoric was at least I think he took some risks here I think it is the kind of rhetoric that could alienate some of the senators he's trying to appeal to although I also think that shift knows what we all know is that there are not sixty seven votes to remove this president from office I wanted before we get too far down that road I do I want to bring in the east Orozco because this gets at what the White House has to accomplish in the next few days from its legal team are they going to for instance defend against those kinds of moments right moments that are on tape our that our public it's not a denial of things the president has done what I I think what they will do and especially with the you know him with shift bringing up Putin is they will argue that this is just an extension of of the the mylar at the mall or special counsel investigation that Democrats weren't able to get the president with that so now they're trying to get it with to get him will on Ukraine this idea that Democrats really overstepped a when they were talking about the Russian investigation that the the president of the Russian asset is is that what you're saying I think you'll hear a lot of that sort of thing and I think when it comes to these ideas of like the tape that they were playing you already see some Republicans pushing back not necessarily on what the president was saying but pushing back on like some of the the the the witnesses that testified like you ambassador Gordon sorry because we should say throughout this opening statement period we have been seeing clips from the house intelligence committee and the Judiciary Committee hearings and they've been playing almost like a highlight reel from that period yes and so what they're going to point to is silence saying that he was never told directly that aid was linked to up the aid was linked to the opening of these investigations or to the White House visit that this was his presumption so you're going to hear a lot of people saying that they didn't know directly that there was bribery or that there was anything like that going on and that some they're going to argue that these were assumptions being made to Matt can I bring you in on this because the other defense kind of force they are if the president's proxies that people in the gallery right senators who were coming out in between breaks and let X. essentially defending him right well that there are a number of different groups among Republicans some who say they're concerned with the president's conduct but this is not something that that we should remove the president from office over and then there are other Republicans who say well you know there's that the president did nothing wrong from beginning to end in a big a big line that's being used right now is on the issue witnesses and on the issue of the subpoena documents is look if we do go forward on this issue we had we pretty much know the president isn't going to be removed from office and subpoenas for documents and witnesses we'll just read this process out even when we know what the conclusion is going to be that it's going to take weeks and weeks and weeks to get additional evidence and come to the same conclusion this is something that congressman Adam Schiff tried to head off a little bit this morning said he said that that line of argument was nonsense that this is quote not a trial over a speeding ticket or shoplifting that an impeachment trial was very serious and it takes more time essentially it should take more time I want to play one more clips from the leading peach men manager Adam Schiff here's what he said in his final remarks the president trump used Ukraine's leader for political favor and with held critical military aid to an ally in exchange for that favor he did exactly what our framers feared most invited foreign interference in our elections and sold out our country's security for his personal benefit and betrayed the nation's trusts to a foreign power Ron Elving this essentially sums up the week so what should what are you going to be looking for listening for next today was the day that the issue moved on from Ukraine to really being focused on Russia and suse already mentioned the really moving tape that we saw from John McCain and this is ultimately why this all matters a great deal more than it might if it were strictly a technicality the Russia issue the Russia relationship the Russian confrontation and the suspicion that works around this president that he is not sufficiently confrontational with Vladimir Putin and that he's done many things that have helped Putin's world planning so this is a critical moment really if if that issue can break through if that can be the salient that senators take home with them then this will be a very different three days then it would have been without that particular connection so we'll see now in the remaining hours whether or not the obstruction of Congress evidence the extraction of Congress descriptions that we'll hear from the Democrats will be equally effective were equally powerful as what we just heard from Adam shin right although that charge is essentially saying to the White House the White House did not cooperate with the investigation into itself that is correct little different from

Nikki Haley's Audacious Bet

"With the politics lead internal White House concern about president. Trump's conduct conduct in a new book former ambassador to the United Nations. Nikki Haley recounts then Chief of Staff John Kelly and secretary of state. Rex tillerson telling her that when they were listed the president it was to save the country. Haley called their actions offensive and said they should've quit as C. N. N.'s Kaitlan Collins reports. This all comes as president in a trump and sister republicans. There's nothing to see here on a peach mint as the White House. Braces for the first public testimonies. President trump is attempting getting a new defense now claiming the transcripts of the testimonies behind closed. Doors are doctored by Democrats tweeting. Republicans should put out their own own transcripts despite his claim Republicans who were in the room having disputed the accuracy of the transcripts which witnesses spent hours reviewing doing that is truly an honor to come back to New York City in New York. I'm Veterans Day trump railed against the inquiry from behind his keyboard just days before the hearings hearings begin. Some Republicans are saying the call was wrong but not impeachable that the president asked for an investigation of a political rival. That's over the line. Ah But if he asked for an investigation of possible corruption by someone who happens to be political rabble. That's not over them. That's ignoring during trump's advice not to use that defense. The White House insists there in lockstep in terms of messaging our all on the same page but as trump and his allies is dispute the testimonies of current and former aides. Their accounts of a chaotic White House. Run by an impulsive. Present are being confirmed in her new memoir. Keke Haley Claims John Kelly Rex tillerson tried to recruit her to join them and undermining ignoring trump's commands in an effort to save the country instead. Instead of saying that to me they should have been saying that to the president not asking me to join them on their side bar plan. Kelly didn't refute Haley's claims claims but said if providing the president with the best and most open legal and ethical staffing. Advice is working against trump. Then guilty as charged Haley who may have political ambitions over own steered clear of criticizing trump as. She argued against his impeachment. Do I think that is good. I think it is not a good practice for us. Ever to ask a foreign country to investigate an American I don't but did the Ukrainians call for an investigation. No did the president hold up aid. He released the aid as he should. I don't see it as impeachable now. Dan in the next hour a federal judge is going to start hearing arguments about whether or not the chief of Staff Mick. Mulvaney can join that lawsuit that was filed by the former deputy national national security advisor essentially asking if they've to listen to house Democrats or the White House when it comes to testifying on Capitol Hill. Charlie government has signaled. He doesn't want to be able to join that lawsuit and instead follow his own but it's also notable for another reason. Mulvaney that she was staff was played a part in drafting that eight page letter from the White House instructing instructing White House officials not to comply with any requests from house Democrats. But now he seems to want to rely on the court's decision about that talk about entry. If we might get the decision from the court the top of the hour. Thank you so much for that report. Ceylan back with our panel. Let's talk about the big news that we know of EH ETA Nikki Haley Book which is That tillerson and John Kelly said we need to save the country. They're not denying the that that you said that. What is really remarkable is that I'm sure you all heard Iowa's heard at the beginning of the administration that there was sort of a pact among the top national security cabinet officials goals that they needed to stick together to do? Just this Nikki. Haley is confirming that that was accurate. Yeah she is but I also I mean it's very She's doing it for her own benefit. Right I mean she's really selling people out as far as I can tell I mean I think the assumption is that they were coming to her in confidence out of concern for things that were going on In the White House now she's turning around and using it to her benefit to try to curry favor with president trump. I think her argument that well if they had a problem they should have onto to president trump. How does she know they didn't? I mean I'm assuming. They probably did discuss their complaints with Donald Trump and if they had serious concerns and they went to her These are people that let's remember. Donald Trump held up as his sort of pre eminent appointments. I mean they were the crown jewels of his were generous administration situation right. The he was held up in these are the best people and now suddenly I you know I think I think I'm just saying I think if they had concerns. I think that that's the story Eh. It's not the the the fact that it'd be -actly yeah. She's trying to make it out that they're doing something wrong. Yeah I'm the good girl that you said that that is the story. Yeah story is we have her saying. And I'm not denying that the secretary of State that the chief of staff and maybe even others were were trying to protect the country from the present. They work for well done of this confirms what's been coming out in book after book after investigative piece there have been so many and only three three years of the presidency that showed a pattern of people trying to work around the president or simply ignoring his direct orders simply bleat taking the order and doing what they intended to do in the first place in effect running parallel presidency. This lines up beautifully with that story which which people denied at the time also confirms exactly what Rex Tillerson and John. Kelly have both publicly said John. Kelly recently said that if left to his own devices the president would do something that would amount to impeachable defenses. That's why I think what Nikki Haley is. Doing here is sort of going. After a low hanging fruit these are two people who left the administration with a really deteriorated raided relationship with President trump. Going after them sets her up to be a pro trump candidate in twenty twenty four twenty twenty eight when i Seoul still think that maybe someone like Jeb Bush can come in and be the. GOP Senator Nikki Haley realizes that she needs trump if she does at least ambitious exactly right. The Republican Party has changed so much having said that the Washington Post obtained Another part or probably the whole book but they wrote about another part of her book. Tuck where she said quote. She went privately to the president with her concern that he had seated authority to Russian president. Vladimir Putin after the two leaders leaders met in Helsinki in two thousand eighteen and with her objection to what she called. Trump's moral equivalents in response to a deadly White House white supremacists rather March Charleville the year before so. She's being protective of him. She won't get line to say that she's she's all in on trumpism but that she's he's calling out the things that almost everybody saw as you gotta be kidding me moment. I feel like I'm going to have a little bit of the defender of Nikki. Haley position here at the table bowl. which is I think I do appreciate that? The first year of the trump presidency. You can just like what it is that he was doing. He was new to this job right and he had a lot lot of people who are telling him what he thought and that was the first year of the trump presidency. You had in various books as ray mentioned Gary Cohn who took some tariff order off the president's desk in threw it away I mean you could never imagine another presidency someone taking away directives that the president was GONNA sign. They treated him as if he was not the president of the United I stay at speak to and then the next question is why well and they see that we didn't see I mean. Look there's a lot to be critiqued under this. The presidency and I certainly am not going to defend a lot of the things that he's done. I'm a far more traditional but in defense of the President I think he got rid of a lot of people because he wanted to be the president of the United States and there were so many people that were not listening to him he was duly elected and so I have some sympathy for him in that perspective now. What are Nikki Hilly's motivations? I think we've covered that here but but I guess on that we're going to have to take a break but it's kind of remarkable how she more than I. I think anybody else who worked for him and has left has walked that delegate almost visible line of supporting him and criticizing him in a in a gentle enough way that she maintains

Trump's decision to abandon the Kurds in Syria sends a dangerous message to US allies around the world

"And joining us now David Phillips the director of the peace building and writes programs each year for the study of human rights to Columbia University and a former senior adviser and foreign affairs expert to the United States department of state during the administrations of presidents Clinton bush and Obama the author of an uncertain ally Turkey and other ones dictatorship and the great betrayal how America abandon the kids and lost the Middle East he has an article at the institute for the study of human rights shock and disgust trump turns a blind eye to take a slaughter of Kurds in Syria welcome to background briefing David Phillips thank you and this outrageous move by Donald Trump which is similar to the move that he tried alea back in December which prompted the resignation of the head of the CNM and also the head of the defense department general Mattis is there anyway given the backlash Mr Connell Lindsey Graham everybody in the in the day a day the state everybody saying this is outrageously dangers and stupid idea given trumps record is he like to reverse himself all other tanks gonna roll in from Turkey early US forces have already left several observation posts on the Turkish Syrian border and I just got off the phone with a Syrian Kurd who indicated that Turkey's military is massing and hi there may be a cross border incursion tomorrow morning at dawn so it looks as though the train has left the station so there are a lot of unanswered questions here a lot of unknowns is an important question though in that we need to ask ourselves why after a year of negotiating with Turkey and finally coming to an agreement on managing relations between the U. S. Turkey and the Kurds have we suddenly reversed ourselves against the advice of the department of defense and state department officials what kind of deals with trump make with air to want what everyone promised him it is it's just another example of trump's malfeasance towards international relations where he's not trustworthy where he's a radic and unpredictable or is there more to it than that is there something criminal here that we're going to find out about well there is obviously in trump's business dealings with anyone trump hotels in Turkey but there's also the other possibility that comes from a lot of sources in the intelligence committee that I've talked to both former mostly foreman but some cards and even at the former deny himself general clapper said that he thinks let ME potent is Donald trump's case officer meaning than Donald Trump is on by potent he's a Russian assets so that might explain this this is there's no question that this looks like something the potent once not what America wants this something that Putin once that Iran loans and what a side once so when you look at the F. Russia Iran and Turkey they cooperate in Syria through something called the a star on a process which was created by those three countries as an alternative to the U. N.'s mediation one of the courage to now who do they turn to for protection if the U. S. abandons them they're likely to turn to the Syrian government answer the Russian government who hold all the cards so what's trumps interests here I want to put in his interest here for a lot of unanswered questions but for the Kurds who have been on the frontline who have sacrificed eleven thousand fighters in the past year at America's be hashed confronting isis they are just spinning with confusion they don't know who their friends are they don't know what to do next hi with friends like this who needs adversaries the courage and other interested parties around the world are watching and it just casts a pall over America's reliability as an ally and as a force for good in the world well I'm no fan of the Saudi Arabians and sent me a moment been sound mind but trump just sold out the Saturdays I mean amber when they they rainy and shot down a U. S. drone trump was about to respond and the aircraft were in the air heading towards Iranian targets when he reversed himself but in doing so the signal to the Iranians that trump and the Americans are a paper tiger and then the Iranians and lost a bunch of missiles on apple cake the big petroleum processing plant in Saudi Arabia that shuts down sandy's oil supplies and then hung out to dry the Emirati is already making a deal with the Iranians and the Saudis are also about to make a deal with the Iranians says essentially trumped sell them out and by the way if you look at it in the broader context it run again end up either directly or indirectly controlling something like fifty percent of the wells are old supplies since George W. bush handed over Iraq to Iran and looks like drum sanding either Saudi Arabian the Amorites and Yemen and the Iranians will so essentially moved into Syria and into Lebanon so they could be the next regional superpower so trump showing a remarkable ability to unify our countries around the world in opposition to US policy if he is so radioactive that he's bringing the Saudis and the Iranians together the amerock teas and the Iranians that's a remarkable development there are profound questions about whether or not Donald Trump he's competent to act as commander in chief informally those questions are being asked by both democratic and Republican senators and by senior members of the US military and missile occurs in the backdrop of an impeachment inquiry which is now entering its third week so David Phillips a you saying that you not necessarily agree with me that trump is quite likely to be a traitor and the importance pocket you're saying he made just be simply incompetent it could be both we don't know hi he certainly incompetent he's proven that over and over and based on the performance in Helsinki and what we seen as of late it would seem that he's also acting in a treasonous fashion good that the house of representatives is looking at this closely hi I'm looking forward to their findings and to the process moving to the center because the US can't handle another year of Donald Trump as president we certainly can't manage another term with him in the White House you just told us that at eleven thousand Kurdish fighters died fighting ISIS on our behalf in twenty two thousand more wounded and the guy the Kurds the ones that have the seventy thousand odd ISIS prisoners locked up in these concentration camps the Europeans don't want these people coming back and we're going to abandon them and by the way if the Kurds a guiding isis and the Turkish tanks rolling in I thank god to basically have to you know go fight the Texan leave ISIS to break out of the camps and do god knows what so the group the Kurdish militias will go and confront turkeys aggression and in the process these battle hardened ISIS fighters will escape for where are they going to go for the gold rush to their Turkish friends and restaurant in the free Syrian army remember what size president Biden said at Harvard in twenty fourteen but it was Turkey that facilitated the jihadi highway from song your foot to rock the provided weapons money logistics and medical care to wounded warriors on the battlefield so the whole jihadist phenomena the rise of ISIS can be linked back to Turkey's national intelligence agency which colluded with extremists and is directly responsible for the radicalization of Muslims in Syria and in the region so then if the tanks are gonna be rolling in dough on tomorrow the the White PJ the Syrian Kurds I just have you know they basically just have light weapons they don't have a crop they don't have tanks they just gonna be slowed down thing yes they will be slaughtered we saw last December in our friend who's active and the Kurds are highly motivated to protect their people but against Turkish air power hand Harmer they really don't have a fighting chance in Africa hundreds of Kurdish fighters were killed the area in the north and east of Syria is entirely flat on light unlike the terrain west of the Euphrates so Turkey just gonna roll in with their armor and they will commit a slaughter I'd just like they did the Armenian genocide of the turn of the century and with trump as president we are we will turn a blind eye to our allies who have sacrificed so much and fought so ably on our behalf shock and discussed is the understatement what the consequences will be seventy thousand caption ISIS fighters and their families all of him a radicalized as far as I can tell being sent loose again I mean what the American people at least notice that is a really bad idea that's a really bad idea but when they're set loose they're just going to go and no hug and kiss their Turkish brethren and no joy in the Turkish free Syrian army in fighting the occurrence remember was the courage to defeat ISIS who liberated Rocka Hannah and then went about who's on the border and got rid of the last vestiges of the caliphate there are currently still eighteen thousand ISIS fighters in Syria and hundreds of millions of dollars in their accounts now we replenished by these prisoners who will rejoin the battle crisis is back and the years so we spent fighting to defeat them it will be lost time and the Americans and the others who died in that because we'll have died in vain then you have to add to that that the US presence of any one thousand troops was stopping the Iranians from linking up from Tehran through Baghdad all the way to Damascus and also there's one thousand Americans were astride the Assad's oil fields which she desperately needs so he's going to be getting it all feels Iranians will have a free traffic that's that's why Lindsey Graham said the Iranians are just going to be I have enjoyed it it's crazy Iran strategic objective here is to establish a Shiite crescent from Tehran to clone to Baghdad through northern Syria to Lebanon and beyond through that corridor they transport weapons and missiles now they're going to be able to do that without any obstruction so why is the U. S. talking tough about Iran and then turning a turning away and letting your run get away with these kinds of this kind of aggression it just is in coherent it is strategically flawed it is practically in coherent and it is morally repugnant the US has

So everybody knows the Singha games that what happened in what turned things around say farmville. I'm one of those people as well that received a ton of neces- ges via my friends and family and a lot of people playing that game.

Khloe and jumping into this game experience it felt like a real escape from what I was dealing with in my day to day life which was enjoyable, but sometimes I need to little bit of a break, and I loved the experience and then being able to share my farm with my friends and family. It was something that was really really proud of. We did have a little bit of a challenge as a company with regards to the platform in Facebook changing around some of the algorithms in which we can message to the community playing the game. And I think zinc had gone through a tremendous amount of learning during that time period of how it's better message to players in the marketplace with meaningful updates in their gaming experiences. Zinger as a company thinking, my no had kind of shot out of the gate IPO with a pretty massive valuation. And then I've gone through some tough times it was as it was transitioning into mobile for messaging became a challenge as the company went through various trials and tribulations people kept on playing with friends kept on playing were to friends and people kept on playing farmville as well.

"No. That's the president shortly after the Helsinki summit, the White House later claimed the president didn't mean no, they aren't targeting the US del. He meant no as a, no. I don't want to take any more questions. The reporter who asked the questions said the president was looking right at her answering no twice to our questions. The cleanup was also required after the Helsinki summit press conference. The president later claiming he meant to say wouldn't instead of wood that even in that cleanup effort, the president said it could also be others besides Russia, meddling. And since then the president has gone back to calling the Russian story a hoax, and the Russian best Gatien rigged today, the distance between the president's reluctance to call out Russia and his national security teams willingness to was noticeable. It was striking enough to prompt this question and a really fascinating answer. I want you to hear from deny coats. In the run-up to the Helsinki summit US officials ambassador investors to NATO investors to Russia said the president would raise the issue of the malign activity when president. He didn't discuss that at least. You're saying today that the president has directed you to make the issue of election meddling of priority. How do you explain the disconnect between what you are saying? His advisors and what the president has said about this issue. I'm not in a position to either understand fully or talk about what happened to Helsinki over to security director to address that question. I just want to emphasize what you just heard the director of national, television's when asked about President Trump's behavior and Helsinki said, quote, I'm not in a position to either understand fully or talk about what happened to Helsinki. It's a pretty stunning statement either. Dan Coats cannot talk about what he knows or he truly does not have the full picture about what was discussed behind closed doors, which echoes something that he said publicly days ago after he made that statement. Mr. codes turn things over to John Bolton who repeated what Latimer Putin said, Helsinki press conference. That election meddling was the first issue President Trump raised with him, keeping them honest. So we only have Ladimir Putin's word for that. John Bolton didn't say that the president told him everything. He said behind closed doors. He's just saying what Vladimir Putin said publicly. So it's not even clear if John Bolton knows everything that was discussed by the President. Vladimir Putin is not clear anyone does except perhaps bladder, MIR Putin. The president. He's spoke out at a rally tonight. Again, talking about how tough he's been on Russia, but also, again, saying things like this. Now we're being hindered by the Russian hoax. It's a hoax. I'll tell you what Russia's very unhappy that Trump one that I can tell you. Well, that's not what Putin said of the press conference that he wanted Mr. Trump to win more now on all this from c. Jim Mukasa at the White House, Jim, do you have any understanding as to why the press briefing on this topic happened now? Way Anderson we were told earlier in the day that the president directed those officials to come out into the briefing room and sale. Those things how they're on the case when it comes to Russian meddling interference in US elections, but Anderson as you noted there a few moments ago, the president had a golden opportunity to drive that point home at this rally in Pennsylvania earlier this evening, and he just didn't do it. As you said, he defended his summit with Ladimir Putin and Helsinki and said that Vladimir Putin and the Russians are unhappy that he's the president of the United States with ladder Putin admitted to reporters there at the summit that he wanted Donald Trump to win. And so there's this huge disconnect that we all could feel it in the in the briefing room earlier today. And that is why you saw somebody reporters asking that question. Yes, it. Was I'm sure various sharing to a lot of Americans out there to hear the director of national intelligence, the FBI director, the homeland security secretary to say, they're on the case, but looming over everything in the room. Anderson is the fact that the president has said, all sorts of things to diminish the Russian threatened the past. Remember, it was just last month when he said it, it could be other countries, not just Russia. That is just so opposite of what we heard from his top officials at that briefing today..

"That's not part of the rhetoric in the adversarial nature ever relations between our countries now. So in the absence of that, how do you explain in the clearest way that you can why they should be concerned? I think all Americans need to trust their government need to know that their government is being candid and forthright in truthful about their objectives. I also think the first role of government is to protect the country. So I think in both of those realms taking a tough line on Russia is in the interests of all the American people. Now, the problem that we have with Trump's approach towards Russia is twofold. Number one is it's clear. He's not being forthright and candid about the true nature of the relationship that the Trump organization has had with the Russian federation, and also he's doing things to advance American foreign policy objectives that are manifestly against our interests like undermining NATO. Now to get back to your question pre about why should an American care. I think all American families do care whether or not America is going to be a leader in the world. Can it be strong gonna have strong alliances going to protect our interests, whether it's because it's to protect our economic interests around the world or to protect our national security interests. And they also want to know that the attributes of the highest office in the land are those of truth and Justice, and and they don't want to have a secret agenda a secret deal emanating from the Oval Office. And you know, overall, I think my concern about the Helsinki summit and the follow on summit is that it's clear that Donald Trump has entered into a secret deal with Latimer Putin, a secret deal to reshape American foreign policy in the image of Putin in Russia's theories about international relations. So President Trump has as meeting with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. And then I think two days later, it becomes known that he's invited Putin to come to another meeting in DC, and I believe last week you were to conference where you're not? Yes. Which conference was that? Was the Aspen security forum and in Colorado. And at the Aspen security conference, there is a now much watched interview. There was a Korean real time with Andrea Mitchell and the head of the deny Dan Coats we present for that. Yeah. So what happened? What was your reaction? So Andrew Mitchell was interviewing Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence. Of course, Dan Coats is a former Republican Senator from Indiana has a long record of public service and and was appointed by President Trump and confirmed by the Senate is deny denies what director of national intelligence overseeing the sixteen intelligence agencies and the office of the director of national intelligence and Dan Coats was being interviewed by Andrew Mitchell. And I was sitting there in the room in the audience about twenty five feet in front of the stage. So just just looking directly at coats and injury, Mitchell, you can get a front row seat. I couldn't. No, I wasn't a heavy hitter enough of sponsor, but I will tell you that Coates was not looking for a way to stick it to Donald Trump. In fact, the first question Andrea asked him was. Director coats earlier in the week. You put out a statement clarifying that. In fact, the intelligence assessment that said that Putin directed and interference campaign had benefit Donald Trump, that the intelligence can be stood by that assessment. Why did you do that? And Dan Coats, the first line he said was I was doing my job and he basically in a very humble straightforward candidate and not not a way full of bullshit. Oh, was basically saying the job of the intelligence professional without fear or favor, and oftentimes having speak truth to power partisan consequences, be damned is to call it like we see it is to say, if Russia directed an attack on our country and did it to favor Donald Trump. We have to say that and most often we say it in private channels. Most often, we say in our classified intelligence assessments, but when those intelligence assessments have been made public and there's been great public discourse about and someone who is trying to twist. That intelligence assessment for their own political gain. We do viewed as a responsibility of the intelligence leader of our country to stand up and say, no, and to stand up for the men and women, the intelligence community. So we started good. He started, you start very well..

"But over the past weekend, the Carter page visor affidavit was released, which was a bit of a controversial wrangling back and forth between the Democrats and Republicans on the Intel committee. And also just generally in the news, we have President Trump in Helsinki eating with President Putin alone than looking. Like he wasn't standing up for his Intel agency and credited Putin more than Donald Trump reversed himself and said, he meant to say, wouldn't when he said would then he invited Putin come to the United States in the fall. We have the business of Michael McFaul the former ambassador to Russia and former podcast guest here seeming like Trump was open to letting him be interrogated by our adversaries in Russia. We also had the indictment by special counsel Muller's office of twelve military intelligence officers who engage in all manner of hacking to interfere in the election in favor of Donald Trump with us. We talk about among those very topics. Why don't you pick one? And I'll ask questions. Well, let's start with Helsinki pre. We have a foreign policy Vizi Russia. That makes no sense. We have a policy that in essence, embraces Putin that defers to a large. Agree on Putin's worldview. You know, for many, many years now, the basic standoff and policy vis-a-vis Russia has been the United States works with allies works with a posse works with our partners principally with NATO, including alliances with the European Union and Russia tries to break up those alliances. And so what we hadn't Helsinki was sort of, I think the culmination of a month of foreign policy decision making in which the Russian foreign policy objective of breaking up those alliances succeeded. Why do I say that? I obviously the month started with the g seven summit in which President Trump on the way to that summit said, I want Russia to be part of the g. seven. And then when of course, Trump left town and left the meetings with Trudeau and others. He said, in essence that the alliance was over. That's something that Putin has long wanted to see. You also saw the NATO meeting which the president went there. And although at the end he tried to declare that it was some success that NATO was stronger. I think everybody who has followed this knows well and understands that. In fact, the ally. Alliance has been severely weakened by the attitude that President Trump took. And then of course, it was capped by the Helsinki summit in which the president said, we have a great relationship with Russia and when asked pointblank by Jonathan linear of the AP, you know, who do you believe your own intelligence services or the Russian intelligence services? He said I have quote confidence in both sides of the boat side. Exactly. It's the moral equivalence between an effect, the CIA and the KGB successor organizations, which to a CIA officer to the intelligence community professional who's out there, you know, working hard to to protect the country, risking his or her own life, risking the lives of his own assets in some very austere difficult corners of the world that is about as as great as an insult as you can hurl it intelligence professional. I agree with all of that, but do you have a theory as to why the president keeps seeming to take Putin side over his own people? It doesn't seem to be a way to endear himself to any constituency..

"The White House announcement that Andrea referenced earlier, said Putin was invited to Washington this fall. We're you aware of that. Just want to clarify g. My reaction. I wasn't aware of that which you recommend that they're not the one on one without no takers. If I were asset question, I would look for a different way of doing it was incredible to witness, apparently some more of Andrew Mitchell interview with the director of national intelligence. The deny Dan Coats of Indiana today at the Aspen security forum. As we mentioned coats, said, he didn't know that flat Amir Putin was invited to Washington. He also said he liked the rest of us still doesn't know what Trump and Putin talked about during their two, our plus private time together in Helsinki wanna talk about all of it with a man with experience in the field also from Aspen tonight. John McLaughlin former deputy director of the CIA who also served as acting director back in four. He, of course, is a lifelong expert in counterterrorism and intelligence policy. I have to ask you your reaction upon finding out that our director of national intelligence is unaware that an adversary. Has been invited to Washington, say nothing of others of our allies who have yet to receive their first invitation of this presidency. Well, Bryan, you know, my reaction sitting there in the audience today was you know, our government is slipped out of gear. It is not functioning normally that would not happen. I've served seven presidents that would not happen in any other administration, and it shows that the president was not prepared for the Helsinki summit and is now improvising again, normally the way this works in a normal government that is in gear is that as you know, there will be deputies meetings and principals meetings to prepare for these things. The pros and cons of inviting Putin here again, would be discussed in detail. People would put their cards on the table. We might go ahead but with full knowledge of what we want out of it and with all of the unintended consequences spelled out. Clearly none of that was happened. It seemed to go from from Trump's head to his thumb and out to the world. Yeah, to your point. That's why you have a gentleman like Dan Coats on the payroll director. I. Wanna share with our audience. We use the phrase cyber hacking. We talk about being vulnerable to electric attack and you're used to this scary line of work, but director coats today, ran through what we mean when we talk about a cyber nine, eleven a phrase not to be tossed around casually, but here for just about a minute, we'll give our viewers some idea of what we mean. We'll talk about it on the other side. I'm concerned about us iber nine eleven. That's what, but that. Well, let's say you shut down Wall Street for a week. What does that do to world markets and people's investments? Let's say you crash. Bank of America or Wells Fargo or whatever. And all of a sudden people are saying, wait a minute. What happened to my account? What my retirement, we'll get it back. OK what we've seen this and we've seen coverage of that. We haven't seen the big one. What about on tack on the electric grid and New England in January, that maybe is sophisticated enough to take it out for three days how many people will die from. From minus degree weather on that. Those are the things that I think you have to. You have to try to intimidate what are the capabilities that our adversaries now have, if they wanted to use them, John, that gets our attention and what's the gap between that potential reality and our reality what we're doing to prevent it right now. Well, I think we're doing a lot to prevent that kind of cyber nine eleven in the sense of preparing our defenses. But on the other hand, this White House has eliminated the cyber coordinator who would have been the person to organize all of the efforts in the US government. The problem was cyber Brian is that everyone has a piece of it on the technical side, you have the national security agency on the policy side. You have the department of homeland security and so forth. And so on, the defense department has a role. You need someone to pool all of that together and no one's doing that from the White House angle. And I would add this Brian in a way..

"And that's a well directed question. There is a sense today quite similar to what we felt in Alabama twenty six game when Trump one Putin was like the dog that caught the cars like out it caught up with the car when you do with it, though. If as seems to be the case, we have a broad almost unanimous and deepening sense of alarm and outrage in the American foreign policy establishment, including sotto voce amongst Republicans that it's going to be extremely difficult for Trump to say, draw down, troops in Germany, or, you know, reduce America's join NATO presence in the Baltic states will propose the Finlandisation of Ukraine. Whatever it is that Putin seeks Jif strategically from Trump is would agree gonna be far harder for Trump to deliver. And of course Henry I'm and I guess there is an element of blowback on one appear to have been Russian intelligence operations, which succeeded in their own terms. And yet. It creates the backlash in the west that they've, it seems to me helped create your selection of Russia. And there could be more of this to come with the suggestion that the British of now identified specific Russians as behind the poisoning of the script panels in songs spree. So presumably won't hear more about that. And the fact that just before the Helsinki summit, Robert Mueller issued twelve indictments against particular Russians and they're presumably there's more of that to come. So are they in some senses in Moscow braced for further storms head? I think you're right. I mean, Mr Putin today gave an annual lecture to all the credited, a diplomatic coil the foreign investors where he talked about needing different positive agenda with the west at essentially blaming what has gone on over the last month on powerful forces. He said in the US that were quote ready to sacrifice, US Russia relations to their domestic political interests. I mean, Mr Putin has gained a lot from the isolation. If you like of Russia allows him to portray the country as under siege, allows him to. To enhance his position as a strongman leader and to say to the voters, look, you might not like everything about me, but I'm the best bet you have right now because the rest of the world is against us, however, that does have drawbacks in increasingly, it's becoming obvious that the Kremlin is not particularly happy with the situation..

"I'm getting Rachman today. We're looking at the aftermath of the Trump Putin summit in Helsinki with one former director of the CIA even fomenting that the US president had committed treason to consider all this. I'm joined on the line from Washington by the f. tease Edward loose an online from Moscow by the f. tease Henry foyer. So Ed, the was the reaction of dismay outraged from a lot of the American foreign policy establishment, including, I think quite significantly few Republicans unusual names such as Newt, Gingrich, condemning the presence demeanor in Helsinki has it come down while Trump as you know the day after Helsinki fatty unconvincingly tried to reverse the impression that even Dorsey Putin's protestations of innocence of Russian interference in the American election of two thousand sixteen over Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence, a Trump appointee who had said that very. Clearly was the consensus of American intentions agencies that had been Russian electoral sabotage and that it was on going and that the state of bay today was somewhat similar to the build up to nine eleven in terms of all the warning signals and Trump was clearly peremptory by Republican outrage in some quarters, badly needed compared to outrage in all other quarters to say, actually hit misspoken any meant he's the would wouldn't instead of wood. But then the following day, Wednesday, he reversed himself. Again, it was asked, was Russia continuing to interfere in Americas electoral system. And he said, note twice, and then gave an interview to Fox News is favorite outlet in which he cost out on article. Five of NATO, that attack on one is attack on all and said, Montenegro, you know, who's head of Montenegro, these regressive people would we wanna stop well, three ever them. So there is still a lot of private Republican angst over this. But as long as Trump. Has the base with him and I suspect you know, the basis owner, I'm with him Montenegro. I mean, you know, nobody's had of it a complex of the nomadic, not worth the bones of a single grenadier cetera. As long as the basis with Trump will not gonna see that much mole carriage on the part of prominent Republicans. I very much doubt and Henry, what's the reaction being in Moscow? So that even somebody on Russian state, television had been saying that Trump had been acting like an agent of the Kremlin your. I mean, I think initially we will asking what the Russian went for shod for it was there was so much positive energy coming out of the Kremlin delegation in Helsinki. So you a row of Russia's foreign ministry said that the summit had gone better than super, which is an almost Trumpian phrase that was tempered very quickly. When I think the Russian side began to realize this is not a zero-sum game seeming to defeat Mr. Trump if you like embarrassing him and him getting all the bad headlines back home is not necessarily good for Russia. I mean, leading up to this summit the Kremlin had been privately and publicly trying to dump. And Dan expectations trying to say that they weren't expecting too much, but it's obvious that they were hoping for some kind of progress in something somethings that come back to their voters and for Trump to go back to his vitamins, say, look, working with Russia is possible. Moscow does want to see sanctions eased. It does want to see more trade more investment from the west and from America. So initially euphoria that Trump had not raised any of the really difficult things had said that he agreed Mr Putin on hacking though, of course, as I just said that was native attracted, but now a sort of sense that well, we're not actually in a better position tool and perhaps in a worst one, if congress and other politicians in America make this a lot harder for Mr. Trump to ease. Any pressure on Moscow. Yeah. So ended in a funny way. Do you think that at least in the short term, Trump's performance could almost have been counterproductive for Russia because it raised so many hackles in Washington, seventy alarm bells that it's going to be even harder to make concessions in the broader government community to Russia hadn't. He makes a very good point..

"And we're back and we wanted to continue to talk about the story that seems to be occupying most people's thoughts right now most media outlets thoughts which is the putin trump's summit in helsinki guys i gotta be honest i was on amazon prime all day yesterday did something happen i yeah apparently it did i i didn't think it was a big deal but so we talked about it yesterday just a couple of things we had a person who's very far to the left on as our guest yesterday and you know he had some extremely spicy takes about you know why he didn't think any of this mattered and you know it was also one hour after the press conference so we were still digesting it and i don't know i mean suffice to say you know josh who is part of democratic social of america their what their focus is on is about working people running the economy and society democratically to meet human needs so foreign policy isn't the priority i think politically for for disa because they're all about empowering working people now i think what happened is yesterday the people took this you know his take was i think maybe he personally believes that it isn't a priority because working people and the middle classes is based dying here yes and i personally pushed back when he asked me if i thought it wasn't important because i do think it's important because any kind of fuck ary or meddling from russia is maintains the power structure in this country and keeps the gop empower and this enabling to keep going on and also to things can be important at the same time yes and even though he believed that i do not and i know some some people were sort of disappointed in like oh what did you push back look these there to have his opinions on that i back but again yes i can make that clear that we'd obviously these two things are very important and at the end of the day like when you look at how just sort of like things like wage stagnation and lack of access to reliable healthcare is a huge problem for american citizens that does have a very destabilizing effect on our population as well because it creates more division ended allows the corporate agassi at the top to point the finger at other people and say it's not us hoarding all of the wealth it's these other people that are taking your opportunity yeah but we still need to democracy to function and russia is kind of getting the way of that so let's talk about that personally so it didn't change anything i believed heading into the press conference because i believed trump was incapable of saying anything wrong about russia because either his ego won't allow him to like admit that he got helped in his electoral victory or because they have some sort of compromising information on him which we'll talk about in this age more ego than that right even if they have something on him it's all about him looking like he didn't win right right and that's all he cares about because like you say you worry about more than one thing at once it's like every time this comes up he just it's a witch hunt rail but it's it's not about just you the russians attacked yet right so why don't you yes i if you had nothing to do with it or if you did it's still about the fact that it happened so as a president let's worry about that yeah but he doesn't understand what it means to be president and that's and that's the main problem right that's way yesterday was so fucked up is that he had the opportunity as the leader of the country to confront the person who is meddling in our democratic process yeah and it was significant but i found it completely unsurprising like going into that there was no doubt in my mind that he was not going to confront putin first of all because he has a huge crush on putin but also because he just doesn't have it in him i don't think to to be confrontational with them no he's can only be confrontational with limit right yeah that really does seem to be the case he he gets pretty spicy when it's may or merckel but yeah and it's putin it was one of those things that we were talking about sort of the black hole analogy of sort of like you know you don't have to.

"Us right now here in helsinki helsinki is cheap international anchor christian album portion and senior political analyst david gergen who's worked with four presidents democrat and republican also retired rear admiral john kirby former state department and pentagon spokesman during the obama administration christiane we've all had some hours now to to reflect on we were sitting here watching the thing as a as it happened i'm wondering how you see this now and what happens now look i don't think there's any question that it was a massive train wreck and pulling out of this and trying to reconstruct american credibility is going to be incredibly difficult the finnish newspapers this is a diplomatic country this is not a crazy country here they're talking about trump zero putin one so that is the finish of reaction to what's happened here in the newspapers newt gingrich i don't often quote has said that this is the most serious mistake of president trump's presidency and it needs to be corrected immediately and to that end you know you just have to wonder at what point will america and its institutions decide that what's going on is dangerous if it's true what jim acosta says that the american white house is too afraid to tell president trump the things that he doesn't know this is a very very scary thing the president clearly is not a politician he needs an education when it comes to these really serious things you don't deal with maligned competitor who he says that's a compliment anyway competitor as you would in a real estate i know that sounds trite but that's what the president seeks to do take everybody as a business partner or rival and try to deal with it like that and it has just shown it's blown up in his face is blown up in the us face is blown up in his republican supporters face and to me the german tweet the foreign minister of germany is said after all this we can no longer fully rely on the white house he doesn't say america by the way we can no longer fully rely on the white house says the foreign minister in order to recalibrate our partnership with the united states we need a united confident and sovereign europe i mean it's really scary it is really scary david peter peters was saying something which i you know all the today hadn't given a lot of focus too but i think it's an incredibly important to point out if this is what president trump said publicly in front of the eyes of the cameras of the world in a little over forty five minute press conference who knows what he said face to face to letterman putin when only translators are present and there are no permanent notes being taken the very pertinent argument because there is now going to be for a long time to come a conspiracy view that they had a secret conversation they cut secret deals and that they're shaping the future of the world without consulting anybody other than selves and we'll never know for sure and that is the price they're going to pay for not having a third party in there one additional party on each side with note taking because for not having credibility i mean flattery putin certainly doesn't have credibility to his his word and i mean i you know i don't know that i'd i mean i guess i shouldn't be surprised to say this now but you know the idea that the american president doesn't have credibility to be able to tell the american people what happened in a meeting with let them reporting is you've got two guys up there and you don't believe either one so you have no idea what what for certain and i think that both sides will now be you know trying to debrief i'm sure they're trying to do that on air force one going home and to try to construct for themselves some sense of what what really went on in there but i i think we'll all go to our grave thinking was something else that happened in there and was there some secret deal and from my point of view anderson this is the worst day of the.
