"I think she thinks that she's probably gonna have some point ghetto get to run the show, if not right away with fighting just standing there and kind of, you know, listening to whatever she says. But here's Hillary Clinton. On her reaction, telling people to vote by the What I think is really interesting about this audio is she's insinuating that there could be some fraud in voting in person, which is just I mean, the president keeps talking about the potential for fraud when voting by mail. But not a lot of people are saying that there could be a lot of fraud. When voting in person Hillary make sure to point out at the tail end of this audio that you should be very careful and take even a photo of the vote that you cast well in the both. I can't wait for that to be an argument on the left that voting in person actually causes fraud. Yeah, but here we go. No, wait. You know what? Hold on. I hit a button wrong. This is the great guy. This is the Chad Benton showing his by fault. Craig Collins pushed a button wrong. But here we go. Let's try this again. Now, Hilary, take it away. Still no. Here we go. It's an idea that is promoted by people who don't want your vote to count. So I think that you need to really understand that you are registered. Make sure go online. Make it Absolutely clear that you are registered and there's no problems with your registration number to decide whether you can go and vote and if your state or your county has early voting If you don't want to go on election day, then go early and make sure I don't know what's happening. There is a deep dive and all the things you should do all the ways in which you should go vote, But go ahead. Keep going there. You stay there until your vote is counted. Take a picture of your vote. Take your phone with you right now. You got to do what if you go in person, and Hillary Clinton feels that you could be sabotaged all the Changes could be made to your ballot. You've got to take a photo with it on your phone because that'll totally make sense. If you walk up to a judge after placing your vote, accusing them of changing it, and then showing them a photo on your phone of your vote, that's that's really gonna help a lot into the either the you know, little Booth or the stand where you're voting. Take a picture of your vote, so you have a record. That you voted and how you voted. Make sure you watch if you're putting your vote into a a machine where it's supposed to be tallied, Uh, make sure everything you do make sure it would be awesome if the position of the left to counter act The president's position that in that it mail in voting is is potentially fraudulent is potentially a system that could be abused. If it's used by a majority of our country. It would be awesome if the left counter to that is that in person voting is mohr flawed. Because then I don't even know Then we just we all give up. I guess we all just put a Facebook status up and that's how we vote because that's safe. That's probably the safest way to do it. Hillary Clinton diving deep and how you Protect yourself from fraud will voting in person. At a voting place, and, Yeah, I just I've got no other words other than the fact that she also said, I'm not going to get to the audio now. Just give up on it that she can't wait.

Reactions to Kamala Harris being announced as Joe Biden's running mate
"Names his running mate Misa Brady, the presumptive Democratic nominee, picks one of his former rivals for the nomination. California Senator Kamala Harris in a tweet Biden calling Harris a fearless fighter for the little guy and one of the country's finest public servants, this just hours after speakers were announced for next week's convention. We know that Bernie Sanders and former Republican Governor John Kasich will be speaking on Monday night. That's an effort to show broad support from both ends of the political spectrum. And then Michelle Obama will also be speaking that night, and then Tuesday, AOC and Bill Clinton will be delivering their remarks and on Wednesday were to hear from Hillary Clinton and also Barack Obama. Fox's Jackie Heinrich, former President Bill Clinton, calling Harris a terrific choice and tweeting that she and Biden A strong team. But the Trump campaign just out with a statement, calling the pick proof that Biden is a quote empty shell being filled with the extreme agenda of the radicals on the left. A
DNC Announces Convention Speakers, Speculation On Biden's VP Pick Intensifies
"Of scheduled speakers at next week's Democratic National Convention is out, and it's being parsed for clues as to who's still in the running to be Joe Biden's running mate. He's expected to make that announcement any day now. Meanwhile, President Trump is floating the idea of accepting the Republican nomination later this month on Sacred ground. The Gettysburg Battlefield. NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson is watching it all. And Mara. You know, some names in the running to be Biden's running mate are scheduled to speak, but not in the VP slot, you know, and I'm just wondering if that's a fool's errand to try to make that meaningful, You know? What do you think about that? And who do you think at this point is thumb Where are may be the most likely candidates. I think the most likely candidates are still that same handful of women, you know, Joe Biden said. He's going to take a woman whether it's Kamala Harris, Susan Rice, Gretchen Whitmer, Karen Bass. Those are the people who have been on the list for quite some time. And and, of course, Gretchen Whitmer is the only white female on that short list. But I think the list has remained the same. Sounds like he's about to make his decision because the vetting committee has pretty much disbanded on DH. It could be as early as today that we find out So what do you think for everybody who's sitting home, you know, got all the names and the lists on whiteboards and, you know, trying to, you know, look at those tea leaves. And should we be looking at the List of speakers. Oh, I think that that that is actually fool's errand, but it's fun and it's going to be over very soon. It could be over today, so go ahead. But I still think you know that of all my conversations with Democrats all signs Seemed to point to Kamala Harris. But with the caveat that Joe Biden hasn't decided, and he often takes his time deciding well, 100 prominent black men signed a letter. Hoping they could make him decide that it would be a black woman because they said to him, you will lose the election. If you don't choose a black woman as a running mate, and this was entertainers, pastors, business leaders, athletes. I'm wondering more. If you think that Biden really needed that public pressure, it would seem in this moment in time. That's the choice. He'd want. Make one of these in class. That's what I think. I think that letter was really aimed. And Gretchen Whitmer. She's the only white person on that list. Everyone else is a person of color or black woman. So I don't think he needed that kind of public pressure. But it does show you that of all the people on the list. There is a backlash brewing to at least one of them in that's Gretchen Whitmer. You haven't seen the same kind of opposition public opposition to Kamala Harris, for instance. Oh, by the way, you're saying Elizabeth Warren is not in the running and I don't think so. Yeah, No, I don't think so, although she's a thought leader in the party, and she certainly has influenced a tremendous amount of his agenda. Of the Democratic National Convention will be all online this year. Wouldn't does that mean for the post convention bounce that the candidates look for Hillary Clinton got well, first of all, who knows Because nobody's ever run a presidential campaign in a pandemic. But most people I talked to assume that the post convention bounce will be very small thiss year for both candidates because they're not having the kind of big Excitement filled crowded conventions like we have in the past that being said the Democrats have had a lot longer time to plan for a virtual convention than the Republicans because they've been scaling. There's back for months. And the big question is, are they about to produce the best four night television show ever seen in history? Or will it kind of be ho hum? Well, and they will be competing in that arena with a president who is obviously trying to make the best television show. What do you make of that tweet that he may accept the Republican Nomination for president from the Gettysburg Battlefield or the White House. Both locations likely to violate ethics rules or just some people's moral sense of what's right to politicize. But you know, this is a president that gave an interview to Fox News inside the Lincoln Memorial, gave an interview at Normandy. What do you think happens here? Will certainly Trump isn't worried about offending people sense of what's right or wrong or any kind of norm. Now there are legal questions. Ethical questions about what kind of federal property you can make a convention nominating speech, your acceptance speech on and I'm sure the White House lawyers will be figuring that out. Is there some part of Gettysburg that he could be on? Without violating ethics rules. It's certainly a lot easier for the president to set this up at the White House, but he's clearly looking for the kind of dramatic backdrop not unlike Mount Rushmore that would give his campaign a boost. Quick thought from you, Mara on the fact that it's been primary season. It's primary day today for six states. The focuses on Minnesota, where the Denver Democrat, the representative Ilhan Omar, Is facing a tough challenge. Other progressive candidates have done very well this primary season. What will you be looking for here, right. She's the only member of the squad left with the primary. The four young progressive women of color and she has a really stiff challenge from an attorney named Anton Melton, Mo. He's getting a lot of money. There's been a certain amount of unhappiness with her. They've been attacks on her first for allegedly making anti Semitic statements. We know that the other members of the squad have not had primary challenges. Rashida to leave beat hers back very handily. So that's what we're watching today for the Democrats. Well, how does he do? Right and very briefly. The unemployed have now gone over a week. Without that additional money from the federal government. The president signed those actions and directives to address this. White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow says the money will go out in two weeks. But he doesn't have The power of the purse. Congress does and they're gone. They're out of session. I think everyone's taking a big political risk here for the president to sign these executive orders and then have people not get a bigger unemployment check or still face eviction. I think that that he will be responsible for that and then members of Congress, including the Democrats, they are allowing people to go without thes unemployment checks, which, by the way, have kept the economy going in large part On Then they have stopped negotiating. Good. Not good. Not good. Yeah. NPR national political correspond. Mara Liasson. Thank you. Thank you.

Debate over mail-in voting heats up
"Another issue that is rising to the surface. The debate over mail in voting and the president critical of states like Nevada but very supportive of states like Florida and Arizona, which, by the way have Republican governors versus a Democratic governor. That's right Now, Trump has tried to draw a distinction between male voting and absentee voting, and there actually is a difference, according to election efforts in a state like Nevada, they are actually sending a ballad to every voter. It's different in Ah, in a state like Florida or a lot of other states, Republican and Democrat run election administrations where they're not sending every voter of ballot, But they're sending every registered voter an application for a ballot. So an absentee ballot is considered something that you have to ask. For now. A lot of states are Doing this for the first time sending absentee ballot applications to everyone removing the need for an excuse for an absentee ballot right in my state, Virginia and a lot of others in the past, you've had to. Ah, Ah sign affidavit that says, I have to vote absentee because I won't. I won't be here. I'm disabled or there's some reason that I cannot vote in person. States, including Virginia are removing that requirement. Removing things like, you know, notarization and witnessing requirements. To make it easier for people to vote from home. But still shop stopping short of sending everybody has ballot, which some conservative voting experts say that just leaves all these ballots lying around that people may not have wanted and opens the door sees an opportunity for fraud toe happen, and there have been a couple of isolated cases of that. Nevertheless, in almost every way and certainly when it comes to ballot security, the experts said. There really isn't a difference between vote by mail and absentee voting and the distinction that the president's trying to drive mostly based on where his friends are right which states he thinks he thinks you're likely to vote for him in which are likely. To vote against him and again, in spite of his attempts to turn this into a red blue divide. You really do have states of both political leanings across the country dramatically ramping up people's ability to vote from home ability to vote remotely. Not all. There's still some some outliers, and and so that's what a lot of election officials Experts to worry that that there's a lot of room for bad things to happen on. And like everything else that Corona viruses sort of exposed. This is a system that already had a lot of problems right. If the pandemic hadn't happened, you could imagine that you and I would be sitting here talking about foreign election interference allegations of voter fraud. All of these issues surrounding our election infrastructure there were already very serious and then the pandemic comes along and simultaneously exacerbates those issues. But also forces forces action. So we've seen this wholesale transformation in a lot of places of the ways that people are going to vote in in ways that could potentially because ah lot of confusion and a lot of delays. Once the once election rolls around, and one followed to that point, and you write about it in your time magazine piece is the president essentially trying to sow the seeds of doubt regarding the outcome of this election in November. That is the concern of a lot of experts again of both political persuasions that you and this is a drumbeat that Trump has has been ah, keeping up since since before the 2016 election and Ah when he said, You know, I couldn't guarantee that he would accept the result and then, of course, and now, of course, Republicans accused Democrats being the ones who never accepted the result. The legitimacy of the 2016 An election, although, of course Hillary Clinton did concede the day after. But again we have the president over and over, saying this election is going to be rigged. This election is going to be improper. The very existence of people voting by mail, a system that existed in many faiths long before Donald Trump was a candidate for anything but just saying that the existence of that system automatically guarantees This election will be fraud fraudulent on and part of the reason that that's potentially so serious number one because you know, democracy relies upon a certain measure of trust that people Trust in the system. Trust in institutions believe that it's an accurate representation of the popular will, but number two because there's so many unique challenges to this election because there's going to be such an unusual value of people voting by mail. I probably will take a while to count all those votes and you could imagine a situation where you know the early vote count goes for one candidate. That is more votes come in. It's hard to change. That's been very easy for that candidate Seo will somebody's monkeying with the number. Somebody's doing something improper, creating doubt in the minds of their supporters, potentially making their supporters want to take to the streets because they feel that their votes are being taken away from them, And that's very dangerous when it's not warranted when it's when it's nearly No Jen DUP in one's perceived political interests that really endangers the bedrock of our democracy. And so there's a lot of concern that that that people have accurate information that people understand that the vote will take a while to count very well may not know the winner of the presidential or many other close elections on election night, and that's OK. That's not something going wrong. In fact, that's the system functioning as it is supposed to function. We should all just take a deep breath and pay for those votes to get
'Wake up Call': Prominent Group Warns Biden Campaign That It's Falling Short on Outreach to Women of Color
"Want to back to something that you all at she the people did you had a series of virtual listening sessions and you're take away from those was that they were real. WAKEUP call. That's what you were quoted as saying, we're ringing alarm bells were saying we want to win. But if you listen to the women on the ground were not there yet can you talk to us about those sessions and your conversations with the Biden campaign about them she the People's network includes many women in the battleground states at the focus for us is an Arizona Texas Georgia Florida and the three Midwest states that trump won last time Michigan Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. And we gathered you know local and state elected officials and heads of organizations people who work on voter registration engagement, and we asked a series of open ended questions. How much do you see yourself in the campaign? Is the Biden campaign been in touch with you What are the issues that matter what would need to happen for you to want to amplify the message? What are your frustrations and what we heard? Is, that there was a lot of frustration on the on the ground amongst the women of color who are in the middle of the critical voter turnout we know in our big lesson from two thousand sixteen is that winning and twenty twenty is about turning out our voters and activating those who are most likely to vote democratic. That's women of color particularly black women and in the states that I mentioned with very few exceptions. Women of color about a quarter of the electorate in the majority of women and so It's incredibly crucial that the women of Color in these battleground states turn out at higher rates and how was the Biden teams response we had a meeting that that there was a lot of openness and listening I think there's some really smart women who the Biden campaign is brought on and I don't. Think it's any secret they're playing catch up. You know because it's not like Biden's a new candidate. You know it's just that right now for the general election in this strange year, the women who were on board now both Black Asian American. Latina who are an indigenous who are running speaking of folks on the ground there they're open they're listening the issue is that we we did not want. I didn't want to see these red flags and not talk about it because it is a People who are in the business of electoral politics, understand one of the biggest mistakes that the Hillary Clinton campaign, and when I say the campaign, it's a campaign it's the it was the priorities pack it was the major It was the party apparatus as a whole ecosystem. One of the biggest mistakes was not too deeply invest in black voters, which is black women early and often and look at it as turn out. There was way way too much focus on trying to convince Republicans are moderate white voters with the messaging and the Komo. You know all that in order to carry the election I. Still See evidence that we haven't completely learned the lesson from two thousand sixteen because WHO's going to be on the DNC stage. Well, John Casick, who is a Republican he's never trumper, but he's also the guy who in Ohio as governor got rid of the early voting Sundays with with. What black organizers would would call souls to the polls? So here's a guy on the DNC stage who was part of voter suppression in a key swing state. That affected the black community whom the Democrats depend on high turnout. We haven't gotten the the lesson fully but. Those of us who are on the ground understand what is going to need to happen, and we wanted to make sure to make those relationships and call out where we need to do some investment and fix things fast in order for us to have high turnout.

The United States just said well goodness if we're having fun with it or if a company can make money off of it, we're going to permit that to happen president trump said enough going on the secretary of state added and we are going to fix it and so he will take action in the coming days with respect to a broad array of national security risks that are presented by software that connected to the Chinese Communist Party. Microsoft has emerged as wanting to potentially by all US operations of tiktok accents reports that trump does have a deal on his desk where Microsoft would lead acquisition of the US operations of six talk and Microsoft seems to believe that it's possible that a total separation can happen from tiktok parent company by Dance. It's important for you to understand that presidents normally can't just order a ban on individual companies like this but the fact that Tiktok has a foreign owner allows the Treasury Department to have broad. Authority over it. Now, at this point, it's unclear whether trump is going to allow Microsoft to buy it or if trump is just going to push for an all out ban, we don't know. But what we do know is that this is super weird coming just months before an election six does have one hundred, million US users, and so it is rather strange move it could alienate some I mean granted I don't know if it would make much of a difference, but it just seemed strange. NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Bankin are safely on earth after a historic flight to and from the International Space Station provided by SPACEX Axios says on Saturday afternoon both astronaut splashdown into the Gulf of Mexico after about two forty, eight PM eastern time a space x vessel was able to recover both astronauts from their crew, dragon? Capsule. Hurley in bank in two month mission was the first time that people have been launched into orbit from the United States. The end of the space shuttle. Program in twenty eleven. This new move of partnering for Space Exploration, with private companies can allow NASA to act more of like a buyer instead of a provider of these services now and will free up NASA's budget to focus on things like getting people to the moon and eventually other planets in the future. In fact, NASA and SPACEX already have another trip planned this time for six months with multiple. NASA. Going up to the International Space Station, this will take place around late. September. So be on the lookout. Additional unemployment benefits of six hundred dollars per week expired on Friday July thirty first and reportedly the White House Senate. Republicans and Democrats are all know we're closer to a deal? Apparently, all sides are on board though for another twelve, hundred dollar check like was done with the cares act earlier this year the main point of disagreement is the additional unemployment benefits six hundred dollars extra. A month is what people have been receiving since the cares act was passed Democrats want to continue at that rate while Republicans want to. Bring that down to two hundred additional dollars per week while eventually moving holy to seventy percent of lost wages Republicans additionally wanted to get a one week extension on the six hundred dollars per week of additional benefits passed quickly. But the Democrats are refusing because they think that the Republicans are just GonNa. Use It as just a quick win and move on. But the Democrats are saying that they want a full robust bill. Now, the Democrats have proposed a three trillion dollar deal while the Republicans are looking to pass. A one trillion dollar deal, and as of yesterday junk Schumer the Senate Minority leader said that there were significant divisions remaining but good progress is being made quote. We made good progress. There are lots of things we are still divided on and we're not close to an agreement yet, but we are making good progress and I'm hopeful that we can get to an agreement. Now they're going to resume talks today. Okay. But do not be fooled. The Republicans are trying to place the onus here on Democrats but Democrats came. Up with a bill back in May the bill back in May like I said had a three trillion dollar price tag. It was approved by the House but then has not been voted on in the Senate and Senate Republicans want to have a one trillion dollar bill that does not do nearly enough in my opinion. So but as of right now you know who's GonNa Suffer America, the American people that are unemployed we just had on Thursday. One of the worse GDP records for quarter ever if not the worst. The percentage of GDP lost was close to thirty three percent. I hope we get a deal soon things are super hard to pass in Washington obviously, and I'm glad that the Democrats are sticking their feet in and trying to get this thing passed the Democrats are not perfect and I fear that they're going to cave too much here. But we've got to get something done because there is an eviction crisis looming we need to renew the moratorium on fictions. Now CNBC just posted a study recently that twenty two to fifty nine percent depending on the state that you live in of renters may be facing eviction as a result of the corona virus economic circumstances these numbers are horrifying and I'm sure this isn't the last time you'll be hearing about it. Trump's campaign paused ads over the weekend, which is really weird because they wanted to rebrand their messaging and new ads launching today are going to be depicting Joe Biden as a puppet of the radical left. This comes from two senior campaign officials but the most recent internal polls show that the puppet of the left's attack on Biden is going to resonate with voters and speaking personally in someone who lives in a very heavy trump territory. The this is the talking point that I've heard Oh Biden's not the problem it's. Going to be the VP you have to look out for as if Kamla Harrison. Some sort of crazy radical assuming he chooses someone like her speaking of the VP spot trump's campaign is very interested in that because the quote unquote radical left thing that they're going to be using their ads is a placeholder for whoever Joe Biden ends up picking. By the way, we will learn who Joe Biden is going to pick around on tenth multiple sources have suggested he said now he pushed back his self imposed deadline from. The first week of August to the second week and one source has said that it's going to be August tenth now. So be on the lookout here. No matter who Joe Biden picks. I think that Joe Biden is well-positioned. Of course, we all have to go out and vote that. This is not a matter of that we have to vote even if we live in California or Massachusetts or Oklahoma Even for God's sake, we have to vote for Joe Biden, but it doesn't really matter as much who he picks. Think this go around because trump's campaign is reportedly very upset that Biden doesn't have the unfavorability rating that Hillary Clinton did in two, thousand, sixteen, all of this trump at drama gotta be Biden's campaign to respond Andrew Bates. Director of rapid response said quote the American people know Joe Biden and after seven consecutive months of failed leadership during the worst possible health crisis in generations they know that our nation's capacity to join the rest of the world beating back cove nineteen has been crippled by one overriding burden donald trump. Representative James Clyburn of South Carolina said on Sunday that he believes trump is trying to put a cloud over the election and that he does not plan to leave office. If he loses Clyburn told CNN that the American people had better wake up to trump and he compared trump to Mussalini and said Russian President Vladimir Putin is akin to Hitler further representative Clyburn said quote I don't think he plans to leave the White House. He doesn't plan to have fair unfettered elections I believe that he plans to install. Himself in some kind of emergency way to continue to hold office. Now, all of this is to say everything that Clyburn is saying here means that we have to so overwhelmed the vote that trump cannot cheat. We have to force him out of office because on January twentieth at noon no matter how hard trump tries he will not be the president if we overwhelmed the vote and like Joe. Biden. So that's what we have to do. If you need help getting registered in your state, go to vote Dot
Former FBI agent Peter Strzok releasing a book on concerns that Trump could be compromised
"Counterintelligence agent Peter Struck has a new book focusing on his concerns that President Trump could be compromised. Straka played key roles in the Hillary Clinton email investigation in the Russia probe was fired over text messages about then candidate Donald Trump. The book is called compromised Counter Intelligence and the threat of Donald J. Trump. Pam
Charlie Kirk: Coronavirus stimulus
"And you have Schumer Pelosi. In Biden one hundred twenty five years, Charlie Kirk of failure, unmitigated failure, swap failure and I. Think of my kids. You met my son. He's twenty one years old. My daughter's eighteen and I would think about your America their America and when I say you know, live free or die, American, the world on the brink I'm not joking. And very specifically will be probably the biggest choice election by far in my lifetime, and maybe since eighteen sixty, and there's a lot at stake We can go through the issues if you want, but it's. It's there's there's not one issue we agree on that. I can think of for the most part yet, and you wrote this, and it just really sent chills down my spine. You wrote this book to sound an alarm as a warning. Warning to my fellow patriots about the left's undying commitment turn America into a land, our parents, founders and framers wouldn't recognize it. It's perfectly put, and that's the direction that they're headed on page twenty seven. You have a great part about how Ben Franklin says we ever republic. If you can keep it, can you talk more about how this truly is? A referendum election in some sense and the left is trying to do to our country. Well the the story about Franklin's interesting, because it's, it's the constitutional convention and somebody says he comes out one days, says, is it a monarchy republic republic? If you can keep it Reagan, I quote him off. When I give speeches, said Freedom Charlie and you know this is but one generation away from extinction. And you know when if you want understand if socialism is adopted if their stated goal is adopted America as we know, it then becomes unrecognizable look, I can understand psychologically. There's a component of maybe people that that have been indoctrinated in schools, and you're great at this because you're going in to hostile environments every day, and you're saying you know what there's another way of thinking here, so maybe the idea that people think Charlie that some things are oh, everything's going to be free and they're gonNA forgive my loans at I'll have a guaranteed government job guaranteed government food. How did obamacare workout now? We're GONNA have Medicare for all or or double down on the stupidity of Obamacare and guaranteed retirement. Guaranteed vacation sounds great. But simple math shows you that you'll never get there. And that's why in the Fourth Chapter of the book did this whole history of socialism which is a history of failure? The point is look at the issues. If if we're talking about law and order. They've cited in Portland in Seattle and new. York and Chicago with the radicals. Joe Biden his yet that I know of said one good thing about the ninety nine percent of cops protect and serve and put their lives on the line for us every day. You're right. Okay, so law and order taxes. He's pledging to raise your taxes through the roof. That will destroy the economy Then they're gonNA just add all the bureaucracy. The Donald Trump spent almost four years. Eliminating that'll be gone. That means nobody's GONNA WANNA DO Business. That's why the Biden Obama economy was so bad. Then you look at where now energy independent for the first time in seventy five years with a number, one producer of energy in the world will lose that for sure We'll shut down coal fracking. Oil Gas exploration production those tens of millions of jobs high paying jobs career jobs for people. Then it's about amnesty. Or the United Sanctuary states of America versus Border Security and law and order of never mind foreign policy. We haven't even touched that part yet, so. There's a lot at stake. If those plans stated plans are implemented. America will go down the past you know. The Trash bin of history as Reagan, said Freedom One generation away from extinction we will. It I shudder to think what will happen the three you and your children by kids, and and maybe one day grandkids. ARE READY FOR THAT And I love the framing, because as the founder said either we're GonNa live free and defendant right now, or we're gonNA. Have a country that you know. We don't WanNa live it, and that's really the framing. That is so important right now, and you talk about and I'm really pleased about this. Shawn because I think we have forgotten about the Russia hoax too quickly in. In the conservative movement, you have been the leader on this every night. You were covering it. You didn't let us forget you help. Muller Accountable, you had investigative journalism and it just seemed that an Oxana names, but other conservatives just kind of drifted away from like Oh. That's what happened happened. You have two chapters on this in the book. Can you talk about that? Yeah I mean I call it Charlie, the the biggest corruption abuse of power scandal in history and the Ukraine was oh. Okay, we failed with Muller after three years. We won't. We won't even bother with a special prosecutor not to I'm going backwards here but to get to Ukraine. You? Know they're talking about quid pro quos, but you have to ignore their presidential candidate on video saying you're not getting a billion US tax payer dollars unless you're fire. That prosecutor is named Shokhin. WHO's investigating my son Hunter who went on a and said? Do you have any experience in oil? No Gas, no energy, nope, any experience in Ukraine. Nope, why are you being paid millions? No, because you dad, so there was a quid pro quo and millions of dollars for the Biden I call crime family. That's exactly right, so. Listen and China's even worse. You get to this whole thing what we now know and I believe what's coming. It's like, and this is where the media's corrupt because. They're just the propaganda wing of all things democratic. Socialist. We now know and have all the evidence that we'd ever need is that they protected their favorite candidate. Hillary Clinton. For things you and I and everybody you know that follows you and you have a massive audience would. Literally never get away with. If you had subpoenaed emails Charlie Kirk and you decided to delete them, and you decided to acid. Wash your hard drive with something. I had never heard about bleeped bleach bit and bust up your devices with hammers. You'd go to jail. If you violated the espionage act, you'd go to jail. They protected her. Then the narrative began we now know began in August. We know crossfire hurricane representatives actually went to brief. President Trump General Flynn. Flynn on national security, but they were there to try and get information on trump and Russia, the most amazing part of this, because the Democrats and the media live for all these years is that they knew and they said and they wrote, and they even testified. There was never any evidence, but there was a dirty Russian dossier. And now we know even the New York Times acknowledged full full of Russian disinformation and that was used. And they were warned not to use it, but high ranking people abusing their power, wanting to take out candidate, trump, transition, team, trump, and then deep into the Presidency Donald Trump. They use the dirty Russian misinformation dossier to ruin Carter pages life and roomed his civil liberties and constitutional rights, but more importantly to spy on candidate trump, and then they had their insurance policy. The fact that the mob in the media ignores it is beyond comprehension. I have so I have two chapters. One is on the Russia hoax, and the other is on this whole impeachment witch hunt. And I want everybody in your audience to understand one thing here if I can get one point across. Yeah, they hate Donald Trump, but they hate us more. They think we are as Peter. Struck, said the smell by the way I probably shop at Walmart say money. Why not you have a woman I love Walmart I love COSCO's. I Love I love it all. And I've shopped there my whole life I mean people always stopped me when I'm in a grocery? So, what are you doing here? Shopping? Wa I like to eat a cracks me up. So but think about that. smelly Walmart Shoppers while irredeemable deplorables, wow! Bitter Americans as Obama said that WANNA cling to their God. I'm guilty their Second Amendment Rights Guilty Bibles and religion I'm guilty of that, too. But. It's contempt for your audience. It's contemporary my audience. It's because they knew better. And they will ling. This was an attempted coup. Now do I think there's going to be arrests and prosecutions I? Do spend much slower than any of us would have liked, but the evidence is overwhelming. It's incontrovertible sad actually that this could happen. That was going to be my follow up. Question Sean because when I travel and we get thousands of e mails a on this topic. When are people going to go to jail? And can you give me insight on this? Can you give us any clues any crumbs that we're starting to see from Durham? It's I call them. It's funny. You say crumbs because call them the the Attorney General Bar breadcrumbs. It's like Hansel and Gretel. Remember. We're we're trying to follow and see the trail exactly yeah. He did say that the president was spied on. It did happen illegally. The. Think about this. If you go before Judge Judy I wouldn't WANNA lot because Judge Judy I. I've met her once she'll eviscerate. You I watched her show. You. Don't go before a court. The information that you have not verified. It actually said at the top of a FISO Warren Charlie. It says verified. Okay. We now know the dossier was unverifiable. The sub source we now know, said this this bar talk. We were making this up. This was never meant for anything and again Hillary paid for it funneled money separate issue. And so, what is going to happen I don't have a crystal ball but I. do know all of the facts that are in the public. Are Enough to indict many of the names that your audience is most familiar with. I would argue. Komi McCabe struck page. I'd like to know a clapper. Brennan's role in all of this ends up being and and others. The more fascinating deep question is. Will they get to that January fifth twenty seventeen meeting inside the Oval Office? This is when member Biden said George Stephanopoulos Oh I. Don't know. Anything about this, you know this whole impeachment Russia thing. He was the one same. Bring up the Logan Act fifteen days later Susan Rice in that meeting did the Cya memo the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated. Obama in that meeting shot Sally Age by saying a He. He knew everything about the Kislyak Michael Flynn call. If we look. To sum it up. I think we're GONNA get there because the evidence. Is that overwhelming? If we don't. I fear for the country? Because of you. GonNa Raid Manafort's home predawn raid and you're going to raid Roger Stone's home. For lying to Congress by the all many of the names I mentioned were referred for the same crime and you're gonNA. Pull it twenty nine guys in tactical gear, frogmen and tip off CNN cameras and. Have a biased jury for person. We won't have equal justice and equal application of our laws, and worse than that Charlie is. We lose our constitution. Yes, all our laws are are predicated on next great document and some `perfect, but it creates the path to perfection at a more perfect union so. Long answers. I'M GONNA talk. Show I love it. No, this is what our audience needs to hear, and and thank you for that and look I I completely agree because if we do not have people and I, say this as carefully as I can in handcuffs for what they did Donald Trump then I I will lose faith in the American justice system I. Don't want that and I don't want revenge I don't retribution I want people to be held accountable and I would want the same if someone did this to Barack Obama because it should never happen to a leader ever. Yes. and. They've gone after every single trump friend confidant, and yet if you oppose Donald Trump you get different treatment, talk a lot about the constitution in your book and the founding of our country, Sean going to be honest, I've been very let down by some of these supreme. Court decisions lately Can you comment on that and the importance to get more people like Kavanagh? Who's actually ruled brilliantly? Unlike John Roberts. I! I'm a little. I don't know what's happening. Roberts I have my theory I guess I have my sources people that. have their own ideas based on some knowledge? For whatever reason and I think this goes back to the obamacare decision. He has allowed. How the court appears to influence his decision making. I also sense with no evidence whatsoever. You're not a big fan of president trump, but that should not come into his thinking. Now. If getting rid of bureaucracy and lowering taxes and energy, independence, and securing our borders, and law and order are all part of this election. Let me tell you another big part of it. And it's you know we're taping this ninety. Whatever days away from the Election Day, I what about and we got asked. What about the Supreme Court? Yes, I go through a whole list I. Forget what paid maybe sixty seven I forget. A. In the book. Of. All the things Democrats would do if they're getting power one, is they? WanNa, stack the courts. Get rid of the Electoral College. And I. What, they're saying they. WanNa do is scary. They used to hide it Charlie. When I every single Liberal Democrat running for office, they would run to the left in the primary. They race back to the center, but you knew they wanted the left. There now openly embracing the most radical elements in the country and you know. Unfortunately we're watching it all. Play out nightly on TV and and that sad what I see happening when I think we have to remind a trump supporters that these are not trump appointed justices, a gorsuch I think ruled incorrectly on one ruling. That's it besides that gorsuch and cavenaugh have been tremendous and terrific verses Roberts. I just think we have to give the audience a sense. Sense of continued conviction that the trump appointed justices will continue to rule correctly and Clarence. Thomas and you know the the Thomas Family. They get no credit at all. I mean what he has done. And can you comment on that? 'cause I, E, you've actually been you open my eyes to that like eight years ago and I never learned about Clarence Thomas as a high schooler until you I mentioned it just as a quick aside on his incredible career. I like to do on TV and antidote on radio, too. Sometimes I call it the Hannity history, lesson 'cause I lived through all of this. I know this is going to see. You're not even thirty three, but my radio journey started in nineteen eighty-seven crazy right. Now on my twenty fifth year of Fox, I didn't think I last two. So I feel very blessed. As a side note if you haven't read my grandfather's son. Which is about Clarence Thomas is life. It's amazing. But. You know it's interesting because him and Scalia. To my opinion, my to most favorite justices in my lifetime. Scalia this incredible wit and genius and understanding and. They got a little acerbic side to when when he was questioning Clarence Thomas always set by quietly. What they called a high tech lynching at the time, the more modern. Let it. You gotTA. Remember Yeah. And you know. It was then Senator Ted Kennedy you know Robert Bork's America the borking of America. That was Clarence Thomas. Now we see it more recently cavenaugh. It exposes. The, who is Joe Biden? Who is his team? Because Clarence Thomas and Justice Scalia or the people we need on that court. We call them constitutionalists or originalists, the original intent, not people that would sight foreign law as liberal justices have done or not people that feel that they can rule by judicial Fiat and dictate or legislate from the bench. Democrats always wanted the court to do that which they could never. Do legislatively or win at the ballot box and that's why they want. We call them. Activists Justices Clarence Thomas. has shown a fidelity to the Constitution at the Antony Scalia. That is beyond enviable And the differences styles always interesting, too because Justice Thomas will always be quiet. That's very few questions. Anthony Scalia was in there in a wrestling with people. I don't know about John Roberts. I can't get into it, but I do believe the next president United States is a very good chance. You have a lot of older justices may want to retire. And I think that the next this election in just three short months. That's on the ballot and that's that's generational now. And Sean I think we have to pressure the Biden campaign to do what trump did and release a list of justices I mean president trump was so transparent and Joe Biden hasn't done it yet. Intentionally, of course, because he'll probably put repeated to lieber something on the United States Supreme Court I mean as horrifying as that might be so in two two quick closing question Sean and thank you for being so generous with your time anchorage, everyone you know. Know go by live, free or die. the first is this. Can you just talk about? We are heading into the election. A lot of trump supporters. They're failed. They're falling victim. They suppression pulse I wish that wasn't the case, but it seems like the memory of two thousand sixteen as faded where people forget. We were down by double digits. Can you just give a little vote of confidence to some of our listeners out there? That think we're just losing. I WANNA. Give the vote of confidence, but I want people to feel this way. I want people to think I'll use a football analogy that our mutual friend Linda that you know. Who's your biggest fan? My radio producer? He's amazing. Amazing, but she doesn't even know how many points you get a touchdown, so I'm giving these football analogies. I, want this election. I want people to feel the way I feel which is. We're on our own twenty. Two minutes to go. We have no time outs We're down by six. We got a cross. The plane marched down the field, cross the plane and hit the extra point to win. So if people feel a sense of genuine urgency and worry and concern, I'm cool with that because fear often as a great motivator, not irrational field fear, but if people do not vote, you will get the government that they're telling you. They're going to give you believe. That that is their agenda. To be a Republican and win. You GotTa always use this analogy got to run the table I gotTA. Get Florida Georgia North Carolina can't win without Ohio. No Republican's ever become president without it right? You got hold Iowa then you got pick off Pennsylvania Wisconsin hopefully Michigan maybe MINNEA- Minnesota will be play. Maybe the city of Arizona will be in play. By Joe Biden reference for those of you. That didn't get. We got a hold Arizona Gopher Nevada New Mexico. New Hampshire and Maine's second congressional district. If every single mom, this is a battle cry. You started out this interview with this. I wrote this book not because I like writing books. My last book I donated every Penny I made to charity I don't care. It's not that. This is a tipping point. Charlie this is I, don't. See if these policies are implemented how America recovers. Irreparable harm the to the rule of law to our courts to our economy, they want to wipe out the lifeblood of of the world's economy. This this promise of socialism and I go into such detail about how it's always failed. Here's a quick socialism of example. Member obamacare. Keep your doctor keep your plan. Save on average twenty five hundred dollars a year per family right? Okay. Millions lost their doctors. Millions lost their plans. We're all paying about two hundred percent more and add to that. Forty percent of Americans almost forty percent have only one obamacare Biden Carriage James Choice now. How did they do with that promise? Medicare is going broke. How did they do it? That promised social security. Charlie hate the break this here. He paying into it. You probably won't get it I. Barely Skate through, and they might give me ten cents until they means tested and then take it back, How does it? How did Liberal government work in New York City with all the anarchy cutting a billion dollars, so please? How's IT WORKING IN CHICAGO? All. These liberal cities have where the violence we've been talking about takes place. They all have one thing in common. They've been run by Liberal Democrats for decades right. Most of these states have been run into the ground by Liberal Democrats for decades. If you WANNA know what America will look like if Biden Bolshevik Bernie. Pelosi Schumer and Bozo. That team gets place look at new. York state and city look at Chicago the City Illinois. The State Look at California. Look at Oregon. Look at Portland, the city. Look at Seattle. Look at the state of Washington. Yes. And I. Love this country too much. You know it's an all hands on deck moment and Every everyone of you've got this connection with younger people in this country. You have this incredible. A credible platform you built, and it's become powerful and meaningful and transformative to the country, and you're going out there, and you're fighting on these college campuses and you. You know it's not easy to be in the middle of a I call it a shift. Show all the time, but let's well put, but you do it. And it's freedom works. Every time you give up freedom for security, you lose your freedom because the security that they're offering. These promises that can never ever be fulfilled. In America. The land. I'll close with this unless you want to go further I can keep going the. Barry Farber who was a mentor of mine. Just recently passed away like ninety ninety one. And he always said there's never been a country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power and abused at less than the United States well I add. A country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power abused at less, but used it to advanced human condition. The reason America is great and exceptional. If I can say that today, it's not perfect, but it's great. An exceptional is because of its people, and because of the fundamentals of liberty and freedom. So that? Natural rights versus government or rights, natural rights come from God doubt by our Creator. Life Liberty pursuit of happiness while you can't pursue happiness these days in Chicago New York Moreland Seattle. So there's a lot on the line. I love your audience. I'm so thankful for all you're doing, and you've got a great team that you building review and you're out there fighting the fight and I just urge you guys. Just fight like your country depends on it. Because America's, we know it. It's all hanging in the balance. Yet was Sean. You've been so generous the last quick thing I defend the president all the time personally as a person. Can you comment on that because I've had the opportunity to meet him? not as much as you obviously and get to know him, but a lot of people here misrepresentations in lies about who he is as a human being. Let's close on this note. Can you just mention one or two things that that people can take away from that? You know first of all. It's interesting. Nobody seems to understand Donald trump yet. They don't want to understand. I mean Donald Trump. The Dog Bites the beasts, things you feeling sad or get cancer. You Complain Trump. I mean that's how saying the leftist. But here's a guy that is so unique he this guy is like a soon nami force of energy like I've never met my life. The most distinct and unique quality he's had is as president. You mentioned the Supreme Court. He put those people that he said he put. He cut the bureaucracy as he said he'd caught, and he cut the taxes as he said he'd cut. He did the North Dakota. A keystone pipelines Anwar Likey said he would. He's building the wall or almost four hundred miles. A wall by the by election will be over four hundred miles. He found a way it was. It was an uphill climb He said he wanted to pull us out of foreign conflicts, but not back away from evil defeated. The Caliphate took out. Baghdadi and Associates took out Sola Mani took out the Al. Qaeda leader in Yemen. So? What makes him special and unique in terms of presidency is that he is who you see is who you get. The guy that's fights on twitter is the guy that's fighting for a better trade. Deal the guy that fights. Against Liberal Democrats and the media mob is the same guy is fighting to keep his promises that to me makes him the most unique transformative political figure in our lifetime. And Right now. The. We tip the scales. You have a choice. It's never been a bigger choice. He will keep his promises. Coronas been a little bit of a curve ball to the world, but even that ten days after the first case, the only guy that I know of thought about a travel ban will be donald trump. They were teaching at the time and Joe Binder Biden was call them Sinophobic, so he's a man of his word. He's a man that will fight to his last dying breath for this country and the promises he made, and that makes them in my view very transformative. Men will. The book is live for Your Die God bless you, Sean, thank you for that. You do and we really appreciate. It helps you soon. Thanks bye. What a great conversation that was!

Obviously, their dynamics that can change the base will matter the vice presidential pick conventions even to a lesser extent. But you look at the fundamentals right now. Joe Biden's in a much stronger position than Hillary Clinton was at the same spot is strong Opposition is a challenger you'll see in recent years. ABC NEWS Political director
Trump eyeing Minnesota, Ivanka to visit on Monday
"From the presidential election. Minnesota being a state that President. Trump has said he wants to win after losing to Hillary Clinton, 2016. A recent poll issued by Fox News, though, found the Democrat Joe Biden has a 13 point lead. Ahead of theologian in this state radio, political insider bliss. Olson publicans best hope for Minnesota's turnout larger numbers in key areas like the Northeast and like Southern Minnesota, and so They're going to need to keep excitement there not just because of the presidential race, but because of the House races there. Ivanka Trump, who serves as an advisor to her father, the president. We'll be visiting later today. Here in Minnesota ST Paul Police
Trump's tanking in the polls
"Anzalone, welcome to campaign HQ David Blah always good to hear your voice. Yeah, you and I met I back in Iowa back in the eighties, not to date ourselves, but the answer. Let me start with this. Let's talk about swing voters for minute. Obviously Joe Biden is doing. Incredibly well in public polls I'd assume he's also doing well in your own polling correct. Yeah I think that it's fair to say that. We're seeing a lot of what the public polls are showing that you know. This is in some ways I. Mean you've seen you've been through a lot of presidential campaigns, and as you said, we've been in this together for over thirty years, so we've seen a lot of historical data and quite frankly what we're seeing right in the public bowls and internal is. Is pretty historic right, so let's start with what we might consider. The Swing Voter Side of the ledger, and then we'll talk about some of the turn out registration targets, so you know you have been part of campaigns world. We Lost White Seniors by twenty points. We a static. You guys right now. white seniors or tied of which means with seniors overall your head. Talk about that like why is that? How much of that do you think it'd be maintained over the next fifteen weeks? I think that there's a couple of things you know. When we take a look at swing, voters There's actually like four really important groups that. You know everyone wants to compare how Biden's doing public Poland's with Hillary but what's really interesting about key group set of moved from sixteen. Is that Biden's not only doing much better and leading in most polling with Voters over sixty five, but he's leading with suburbanites. He's leading with independence, and he's leading with college voters, and so those are like four really important groups that not only did trump win, but is you know Romney won right and so listen? These presidential candidates. Have Different coalition I mean people like to talk about the Obama coalition in. It's important. But Biden's coalition, GonNa look different and clearly part of this started in two thousand, eighteen where we saw suburban women Super White Women College Educated Women but also college educated men really move. I mean take a look at Gretchen Whitmer who is a a a client of ours in places like Oakland County Right She also wanted to Comb County Reagan Democrats which is interesting, which also biting one in the primary, so we're seeing these swing. Voters these groups that Biden is bringing around that is different than the coalitions that we've seen. Seen in the past while at the same time narrowing margins within the Republican base with white voters and also rural voters, and keeping on par with our democratic base, right with young voters in women, and so You know when you, of course you know two thousand eight you. You saw this I. Mean when you are moving, and you have a moment, or if you sustain that moment, you tend to do well almost everywhere, meaning that even in the Republican base voters, rural voters and things like that, you tend to narrow the margins, and they're on margins. In tough places. Is just as important as doing well in some of these other swing areas. Now just specifically unseen Yars I. Listen, you know we see trump's jump rating just getting worse and worse on handling the coronavirus eppendorf pandemic clearly seniors Vulnerable the most at risk, and I think they're reacting directly to that risk in terms of feeling like he didn't get serious enough. He didn't listen to medical experts. He didn't have a plan and now with the kind of the surge feel like he's put his head in the sand and I think it's just cost him dearly with that largest age bracket the motor sixty five, and over the last Democratic presidential candidate to win sixty five and over. Is Al Gore so that Kinda gives you an idea. Of! How important this is! Yeah, reminded. Every election is its unique beast so on whether it's seniors suburban voters, you mentioned both college educated women and men Joe Biden right now, doing extremely well. Two questions for you John Do you think he's close to his ceiling there and the job really for your campaign is to maintain those numbers. Do you think there's room to grow? And secondly just how durable do think it is? Do you think that some of these voters are already locked in and is going to be really hard for trump to dislodge them? You get a feeling that where we are today. is very difficult for trump and listen first of all we should say we. We all have a collective PTSD right from two thousand sixteen, and so none of us are getting overseas, but at the same time you know you have to acknowledge the good polls because you know, there's a couple of things that are different from where Joe Biden is from past democratic nominees, including Barack Obama and and twelve. In that, he's also at fifty percent. Right at this point in time whatever what hundred four days and you know there's been no Democrat or Republican candidate you go all the way back to two thousand who's reached that threshold and so you know that's really import. The other part is is that Joe. Biden isn't scary to voters. I mean that's one reason he's leaving with independence. And if you take a look at I don't know the NBC Paul I think is is a good example or one of the most recent ones where I think it's the Fox foxhole. We're Biden is actually above water popularity. Naturally trump is underwater, but trump's very unfavorable is at forty seven percents, and binding I. Think is at thirty one. There's win been one thing that I think when they write about Joe Biden in the primary and the general election is the stability of his vote, right? It really hasn't moved that much. I mean trump's has moved down during the primary I mean. We're biden kind of started at the beginning. He ended at the end. It was very stable. Other people moved all around, but Joe Biden was incredibly stable and I think. Think that we're GONNA see that same dynamic here and we have really in the last several months. The Joe Biden's vote has been incredibly stable it's in a couple of points to the fifty percent mark. trump has moved down right and that is that is a good thing but the stability is important for Joe Biden. One is how voters view him and to how voters view trump. You know there was the I think it was the B. Poll that showed fifty percent of voter said there was no chance at all that they would vote for trump, and so your question is you know, will biden's numbers remain stable, and there just seems to be a universe of voter that is completely cut off from trump and it's because of how people you him prior. Let's think about this. Let's dissect prior to the pandemic. People you know we always heard the same thing. Whether it was you know for for Biden. Her for US Senate race for a congressional race. Is that people disliked? His behavior is tweeting his bowling. He was a jerk They basically just didn't like him as a human being, but hey, you know it's not like some of his agenda and his policies. They like how he took on. The median shook things up in Washington, DC. Now they're problem with him. Is Not only behavior how he reacted in a protest and things like that doubling down. Of Racism but their main problem is. Is that they feel that he failed the leadership test on the three crises, whether it was the health and crisis, whether it was the police brutality protests crisis, and now the economic crisis, which is hurting his economic numbers, and so they're now viewing him His biggest problem isn't just his behavior which they haven't forgotten. It's his lack of leadership or his mishandling of these crisis, so three and a half years in their judging him president. President. They're not judging him as a personality. That is his biggest problem right now, and you know I don't think that you know that's going to change. I think that we have a couple more crises potentially coming very soon, college kids and K. through twelve kids start going to school and mid August and you know it's GonNa be It's going to be really a a really tense time. I think it's GonNa. Be a problem for a lot of communities, a lot of states, a lot of holds and that is the problem. They're going to squarely put. On trump because he didn't take this series at the beginning, you didn't listen to medical experts. He didn't have a plan. And that's a problem I mean. We have more crises coming quite frankly. Yeah, now that's that's a great point and your point about his very under favorable I mean if he's sailing into voting time in late September and October with forty seven percent, unfavorable lombardo grounds He's really up against a wall there so John. I, think one of the mistakes. Sometimes you can make whether it's politics. Are Businesses your opponent? Your competition does something puts. Puts out, an ad or new strategy and you know you're like well. That's dumb and of course I've learned like you better. Take a minute and think through why they think it's smart right, but on this suburban thing what what strikes it's almost like trump got a briefing saying you're hemorrhaging the suburbs and he's like Ooh I. Know what I'll say. I'M GONNA say Joe Biden is going to destroy the so like. Do you see any evidence that that tactic which seems to be front and Center for trump, and his campaign now has any chance of succeeding. Listen I think that you know you and I have been through a lot of campaigns, and when you're in a campaign where you're behind, and you're behind eight or ten points, what do you do you just kinda start throwing things at the wall and he tends to throw things at the wall I. Mean You know in one week? He's hitting us on. China I mean all paid TV the next week. He's in his on. You Know Nafta now. Now, he didn't on defunding the police and so they try a lot of different things out right but the fact is is that trump was up on TV in the battleground states for a couple of months prior awesome. You sure what the number is, but I think it's close to fifty million dollars. We never saw the numbers. Move I. Mean you see that in the public calling right? I mean our numbers actually got better. His numbers got worse even though he was on TV by himself and very high levels as well as with his allies, and so you know now. We're on TV. So now we're in a position to you. Know have our own message. Ever Own Voice of voters see what Biden's about What's his agenda and his vision and again we don't see any deterioration a matter of fact, if the last ten days are any indication and again we don't you know. We don't get over our skis on this but the. The. Number of polls have showed this in double digits. is a good place to be. It doesn't mean that we're not gonNA work hard doesn't mean we don't take anything for granted. We know that we just gotTa fight for every vote and we know that it's going to get closer because that's what thing, but that's just. The natural physics of presidential races but I think that again it goes to the opponent meaning Joe Biden. clearly isn't Hillary Clinton. You were talking about very unfavorable in two thousand sixteen. Trump's very unfavorable was forty seven percent, and Hillary's was forty five percents, so there was a lesser of two evils dynamic. Going on, you always see this kind of analysis of what they call double haters, people who dislike both candidate. Well you can't call them double haters this time because they are. They hate trump, but they just kinda just like Joe. Biden are they dislike politics? Right is so his very unfavorable with that group is you know literally I? Think it's a quarter of trump's, and he wins that group by forty plus points depending on the pulled that you see, and that's actually really important again. They don't see Joe Biden scary. They see him as a compassionate relatable. Guy you know they keep the fact that he's lunch Pail Joe and he's a guy. WHO's GONNA look out. For Working Families and he is, you know someone that one. The trump and their allies throw punches. you know they? They're not sticking like their sticking and past presidential campaign. Right, so I WANNA. Talk about filling in the blanks on Joe. Biden, what you guys have started to do, but I want on I. WanNa talk about battlegrounds from and so you made an important point. which is you know when you've got momentum? Momentum in a campaign particularly national campaign. You see you see you see progress everywhere. It's just not in a particular state or region, so I a couple of questions one. Are you seeing with swing voters in particular? Are you seeing the same strength for Joe Biden in the south in the Midwest and the West and I guess secondly I would've thought. Let's say ninety days ago hundred twenty days ago, trump's floors, floor and battlegrounds. Forty six. It looks like it may be lower. So what do you think is I? Mean I agree with you that you know when you see a poll right now. That shows Biden fifty forty. You know the other ten percents gotta go somewhere. And you know probably more of that comes to trump it goes to you guys because you're bumping up against a pretty pretty good and healthy ceiling, but I'm curious kind of what where? Where you see both, is there uniformity in terms of the movement across the country and secondly kind of? Where do you see trump's floor now? Yeah, well, I do think that there's again. We you know you can talk about Joe Biden's feeling, but really when you look at it, historically all the way back to two thousand is just presidential candidates ceilings I mean there's not a lot of presidential candidates who've gotten over fifty percent. Who won right and so the fact that we're in this divided country and there are third party. Candidates who siphoned off universe. Hopefully it won't be as much as two thousand sixteen, and we don't think that it will be but the ceiling is is is almost as close to fifty or a little above for almost everyone right I mean that just kinda historically has how it's happened. Happened in the battleground states like you, you say whether it's Michigan Pennsylvania Wisconsin Florida Arizona I, mean he's having trouble getting to the mid forties right I, mean he in places like Michigan and Pennsylvania in Wisconsin in the real clear politics or the fivethirtyeight average of polls, he stood at forty, one and forty two percent now Florida in Arizona and in North Carolina or Kinda GonNa Act like Florida. And North Carolina in Arizona, they're they're always going to be tighter. Right I mean like Scott Ours no always says Florida tight and that's true now we haven't. You in a lead that's above the margin of error. That hasn't happened very often. That, you and I have done enough Florida. politics polling to know that that is a state that tends to tighten up again. I think that we have. An advantage there because of how we're doing with seniors, and we're competing David I. Mean you know it's like this campaign is going to look a lot like you to you like two thousand eight because of where we're competing? The balanced expansion. In the media markets in Florida, well, where do you WanNa? See I mean I. Remember Two thousand like it was yesterday we were. We were up on TV at high levels. Competing with McCain wear Panama City Talahassee. Jacksonville Gainesville, we were fighting the fight in the panhandle. Right and you know. I mean protect protect I four and all that type of stuff. You GotTa do well Miami Dade Palm Beach etc, but when you see a campaign competing against the Republican in the Republican areas That's what you gotTA. Do to win a place like Florida, and a lot of campaigns often have to make the cost benefit analysis, or make the bad decisions, and this campaign, because it's been under great leadership and the reason, a lot of money gives you the ability to run the race. You need to run to win, right? So I want to just ask you quickly third party because you mentioned it and you live through this horror in two thousand sixteen, where trump could win states like Wisconsin with forty seven point two percent of the vote because the third party vote share was. Higher than historical averages right now in your research and it seems to be true in public research. You're seeing that those numbers may revert more to two percent or less that we've gotten used to write, and that's huge because your ceiling is higher than trump's. I would guess at this point right and so I think that I think that this is how I look at that and you know I mean when you pull when you add third party candidates two point, they always get more on the pole than they actually do on election day right I mean. That's just kind of the dynamic, and so you know you have to. You have to test things a bunch of different ways. But I think there's one thing that we all kind of instinctively know that in two thousand sixteen. There were how a lot of voters Bernie voters etc. WHO stayed at home? WHO VOTED FOR GARY? Johnston voted for Jill Stein and ninety nine percent of them who vote did one of those three things were ninety nine percent. Sure that Hillary Clinton was going to be president, and so they were doing a protests about. those voters now know what's at stake. And they're You know their their enthusiasm. If you will to get vote or get, trump out of office is incredibly high. It's an incredibly intense, and so I think that that dynamic and quite frankly Bernie Sanders and his campaign and the Joe Biden and his campaign have worked together on a plethora of issues. will make the dynamics here much different so we don't see that bleed, and and internally we see we see that you know. Joe Biden just has better with Bernie Voters Than Hillary Clinton did in two thousand sixteen well does tighten up. That's going to be such an important dynamic. So, You mentioned You know the Biden campaign. has a very expansive electoral map again. Something we might not have expected months ago. and you know those are pretty weighty decisions. You're involved in those decisions with General. Molly Dylan and Donald other leadership in the campaign, but John when you think about the places that look now plausible. Not Win them, but you know Georgia in other poll out in Texas today publicly had Biden Upright one Ohio Iowa those are likely not going to be in. My view is two hundred seventy electoral vote, but do you think there's a scenario where you could get surprise? Where maybe you don't win in north, Carolina and Georgia, or is there really a stack ranking on these states? Well as you know, there's always a stack ranking and you were at the you know. Know Genesis in two thousand twelve of analytics right, and so there's a there's a lot of simulations things that you know you and I didn't learn about growing up in this business and there's and there's tipping points, states and things like that. I think that at the end of the day again. The leadership of this campaign is incredibly focused and disciplined, and you can see where we're buying TV. It's public and it's always you know reported on. You know we're very focused on the six battleground states, and you know until you know, they move on to another state. We will be focused on those six states in a very disciplined way, because that is the ball game I think that what's difficult for trump is that he's not only communicating in those six days. He is playing defense right now in Ohio and Iowa, so he is spending a lot of money in Ohio in Iowa. Just protecting himself he's also up in Nevada right, which I don't understand, but you know, right. Right and so she's the one that is actually expanding a lot of money. and I can't say in an undisciplined way. He is in trouble, so he has to expand his hip protected. He has to expand but right now. the Joe Biden campaign is very disciplined and very focused and you know will there be expansion states. You know there's a big map on the wall just like there is you know in two thousand, eight and twelve and sixteen, but you gotta be careful, and you have to be very analytical about doing that.

"About your role in that in a second. But who among them are you interested in well, I. I know everyone who's running and or thinking of running or possibly running but. There's always that period between hate that sounds like a really good idea. And, then, trying to actually think through see if it is the right thing for you to do see if you can raise the money, all of the questions that go into it so I'm not going to handicap the race before. Anybody actually gets into it. I think we'd have a number of excellent candidates who would be really formidable on the campaign trail, but let's wait and see who it is I mean. We may have as many as fifteen twenty candidates. That's a big group to try to sort itself out. And I'm just GONNA. Wait and Watching him that anyone, you're particularly interested. No you know, there are a number of their a number of excellent potential candidates. Look this first of all if we don't win. Naming names and see what you're. Okay if you want to, but. If we go. But if we don't win on November six, honestly, I know this sounds far fetched. This administration if they continue to control all branches of government, and they have been stocking the courts with ideologues. You will, you will find that it will be much more difficult to run and people who have never had to face the fire. Once they get out there. And they start being the target of the vitriol and hatred that comes against anybody who criticizes trump. That's going to cause a number of people to do a bit of soul searching. So I think we've got to give everybody who is thinking about it or even people who wake up on November seventh and start thinking about it. We've got to give them the space to make what is a really serious calculation depending upon what political individually and then I want to get to Saudis. What Moore and Elizabeth Warren Elizabeth great cheap look for reelection. She's obviously going to be reelected overwhelmingly and she's got a great message. He's got a great passion for the fight to restore the middle class I mean. If she decides to run, she'll have a lot to say Bloomberg. Well you know I think Mike. Bloomberg becoming a Democrat should at least suggest he's thinking about it. and. I had the same thought. Yeah I I mean great minds, and all of that I think he is You Know He. He has overwhelming resources, but he also. Has a real. Interest in running things and making them work better, and you know he'd have to get out there and persuade. Democrat city was. In the primary to be the Democratic nominee, but if he if he gets out there, I think you'll have. A lot to contribute. Let's see Comma Harris. CARMELA is fantastic, human, being as well as a terrific senator and she She just brings a whole. Very fresh and open approach to a lot of these issues that she cares deeply about that. She's worked on as attorney general a prosecutor before that and being from. California is a big deal. Because the California primary, we'll have by far the largest number of delegates so you know the politics and and her. Obvious interest in these important issues would stand her in good stead Oprah. Look she's an icon and she she has. She has said she's not interested and really. Don't believe you, don't it? Well then I believe you believe you believe it well I I believe her because she's got almost the perfect life right now. And she has. A tell you a story that is kind of related, although a little off topic, so when when? She who I got to know quite well when I was leading the opening of the United States to actually go back into what was then called Burma Myanmar. she was the human rights icon. The you know, the lady, the lady who had lived in a house arrest to had stood up for democracy in her country and. She and I had a really. Long couple of conversations about her decision that she was going to go into politics. and. I said to her then I said. I can understand why you WANNA do that. You WANNA be part of helping to forge democracy that you have fought. Force suffered for. Over so many years, but once you go from icon to politician. It will be a very different world that will face and the calculations. The thinking that you have to make as a politician oftentimes pushes you to compromise forces you to have to. Ally yourself with people that you agree with one time out of one hundred. There's just a lot that goes into it. You know it is the making of sausage so so I think that Oprah. I think she would say look I can help influence the debate. I can be talking about important things that we need to be a country that starts talking and listening to each other again rather than getting into the political arena, so she wouldn't WanNa like hang out with Sean Hannity for example. Well? No Democrat likes to hang out. I. mean, that's one of the problems. The propaganda value that Fox provis to the Republican Party is incalculable. It is so incredibly important to their brand to their messaging. They just. Put turn themselves over to be. An alliance with Fox so I think that it's difficult to go on their shows very few Democrats, any longer do because you know. There's no such thing as as having a reasonable conversation you're just going to be. Beaten up and chopped up and delivered to the audience when you go on. Fox News! I've gone on Fox. News I've been on Fox News and you know look. There are a few people that you feel like you could have a reasonable. Conversation with Sean Hannity is not one of them. Okay with that would not be my recommendation to Oprah Buddy al I would great. I'm going to get off these season. We're talking about you. Know personal things with you and also, but but running one of the things that has happened. Let's start with the political part. There's been a lot of articles. Hillary's should shut up. Hillary should not talk. Hillary's got to go away, right. Okay. But those articles are there you know. What do you think of those I think they're ridiculous got. Where do they wear from your perspective? They Comfort. Well, I don't know. I noticed that there were no articles telling Al Gore to go away or John Kerry to go away or John McCain or Mitt Romney to go away. Mitt, Romney's going to the Senate. That's where he's going. And so I don't really know I think. You could speculate but I don't have any. Any evidence or speculate speculate okay. Look I think. I think some of it and I write about this in my book. Some of it is just of the same category of the. Sexist behavior and sexist kind of talk around me and my campaign, but not only me. You mentioned a couple of my former colleagues from having been in the Senate. Luther Warren's on the floor of the Senate, delivering a speech against Jeff sessions to be attorney general, and she's reading from a letter by Coretta Scott King who had doubts about Jeff sessions years before when they wanted to make him a judge and Mitch McConnell goes to the floor and as majority leader..

"Continuing assault on our sources of information. Here's how I think about it. I was very proud of my data and analytics team. They were largely veterans of the Obama Campaign's await twelve, and then we brought in new people and brought in a lot of new expertise to build the next generation, and we had a lot of help from some. In silicon, valley as well and what we thought we were doing. Here's the arena we were playing in was going to like Obama. Three point zero. You know better targeting better messaging and the ability to both turn out our voters as we identified them. And to communicate more broadly with voters. Here's what the other side was doing, and they were in a different arena. Through content farms through an enormous investment in. Falsehoods fake news. Call it what you will about lies lies. Really. That's a good word to. The. The other side. was using content. That was just flat out false. And delivering it in a very personalized way. You know both sort of above the radar screen and below. And I. You know I'm not a tech expert by any stretch of the imagination. That, really influenced the information that people were relying on, and there have been some studies done since the election that if you look, let's pick facebook if you look at facebook. The vast majority of the news news items posted were fake they were connected to. As we now know the one thousand Russian agents who were involved in delivering those messages they were connected to the bots that are just out of control. We see now this new information about trump's tweets account being populated by millions of bats. And it was. It was such a new experience I understand why people on their facebook pages would think. Oh Hillary. Clinton did that I did not know that well. That's going to affect my opinion about her. And we were. We did not engage in false content we may. We may have tried to put every piece of information and the best possible, white and explanations, but we weren't in. The same category as But okay, so you weren't going to lie right good for you well. I see rethinking. Rethinking it, but everybody else better rethink it because we have to figure out how okay APP, but that's my point. Yeah, my impression is that the that the left the Democrats liberals. Whatever you WANNA. Call Cleaning Bernie, Sanders folks and all everybody. On the democratic side. which which at one time many like twelve fifteen years ago was ahead of the Republicans on. As, listed then right is way behind now, and it's not just I mean there's a way to weaponize tech that doesn't involve flying, right or doing or having Russians help you, but just it. It is a political weapon. It's a fact of life. How do you do that? How do you do? How do we do it, but let me let me let me just do a comparison for you, so you know I set up my campaign and we have our own data operation. I get the nomination. So I'm now the nominee of the Democratic Party. I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party. What do you mean nothing I mean? It was bankrupt. It was on the verge of insolvency. Its data was. Mediocre to poor non-existent wrong. I had inject money into it. This is the DNC the DNC to keep it going okay. Donald trump who did nothing about really any kind of data operation inherits are in see data foundation. That after the Republicans lost in two thousand twelve, and they thought they had a very good operation with the setup that Romney did the called ORCA. They thought that was really state of the art they lose. So they raised. Best estimates are close to one hundred million dollars. They brought in their main vendors. They basically said we will never be behind the Democrats again. And They Invest Between Two Thousand Twelve and twenty sixteen, this one hundred million dollars to build this data foundation. They Beta tested it. They ran it. Somebody will able to determine about two hundred twenty seven thousand surveys to double check triple check quadruple. Check the information, so trump becomes the nominee, and he is basically handed. This tried and true. Effective Foundation. then. You've got Cambridge Analytica and you know you can believe. The the hype on how great they were or the hype on how they work, but the fact is. They added something and I think again. We better understand that the mercer's did not invest all that money just for their own amusement. We know they played in Brexit and we know that. They came to Jared Kushner and basically said we will marry our operation, which was more as it's been described, psycho graphics sentiment lot of. Lot of harvesting of facebook information. We will marry that with. The the RNC. Onto conditions you pick Steve, Bannon and you pick Kellyanne Conway and then we're in. Trump says five who cares right so bannon who'd been running the Breitbart operation supplying a lot of the? The untrue false stories are saying lies yeah. We know so they married content with. Delivery and data. And it was a potent combination now. The question is where and how did the Russians get into this and I think it's a very important question, so I assume that a lot of the people here may have, and if you haven't I hope, you will read the declassified. Report by the intelligence community that came out in early January. This is seventeen seventeen agencies all in agreement which I know from my experience, says a senator and secretary of State is hard to get. They concluded with high confidence. That the Russians ran and extensive information war campaign against my. Campaign To influence voters in the election. They did it through paid advertising. We think they did it through a false news sites. They did it through these thousand agents. They did it through machine learning, which kept spewing out this stuff over and over again the. That they developed now so that was the conclusion and I think it's fair to ask. How did that actually influence the campaign? and. How did they know what messages to deliver? Who told WHO TOLD THEM? Yeah? Who they coordinating with or colluding with because the Russians historically. In the last couple of decades, and then increasingly you know are launching cyberattacks, and they are stealing vast amounts of information and a lot of the information. They've stolen. They've used for internal purposes to affect markets to affect The intelligence services. Et CETERA. So this was different because they went public, and they were conveying this weaponized information, and the content of it and they were running. You know there's all these stories about guys over in Macedonia. Fake News sites and I've seen them now and you sit there and it looks like A. Sort of low level, CNN operation fake newspaper. Guardian fake newspaper, and so the Russians in my opinion and based on the Intel and counter Intel people I've talked to. Could not have known how best to weaponize information unless they had been guided. Here's here's by Americans guided by Americans guided by people who had polling and data. Now. Let me just finish because this is the second and third step so. We know that they did that. We understand it. Best example so within one hour one hour of the Access Hollywood tapes being leaked. Within one hour. The Russians Assay wikileaks same thing dumped the. John Podesta emails. Now if you've ever read the John Podesta emails, they are Anodyne to boredom. But. There! We had him here, but they were. They were I. Forgive Him for what he said about you. So they were running the mail emails especially run of the mill for a campaign. Should we do this? What did she say? I don't you know? The stuff that is so. Common Basic. Within one hour they dump them. And then they began to weaponize. And they began to have some of their allies within the. Internet world like Info Wars takeout pieces and began to say the most outrageous outlandish absurd lies you can imagine. and. They had to be ready for that and they had to have a plan for that and they had to be given the go-ahead. Okay, this could be the end of the trump campaign. Dump it now. And then let's do everything we can to weaponize it and we know it hurt us because as I explained in my book. You know the the Komi letter, which was now we know partly based on. A. False memo from the Russians right? It was a classic piece of Russian. Disinformation Kompromat they call it. So, for whatever reason I speculate, but I can't look inside the guy's mind. He dumps it on me on October Twenty, eight and I immediately start falling. But what was really interesting? Since the mainstream media covered that as I, say like Pearl Harbor Front pages everywhere huge type etc.. And all of the trump people go around screaming locker up locker up and all of that..

"And They would not going door, and they would say I'm here to ask for your vote for Hillary Clinton in the name of Pennsylvania primary whatever it might be general election. And sometimes people would I can't vote for her. Chee. Fill in the blank. You know few murders, people whatever the crazy thing was that they were coming up and my friends would say that isn't true and they would say either, but I saw it on TV. or I heard it or I saw it on the Internet. And so this has been around a long time, but the Internet even. Probably more now than the people you named off. They not only feed these lies in these conspiracy theories is crazy stuff to people on their shows, but now it gets amplified on the Internet, so you know. After the two thousand sixteen election, there were a lot of academic research studies that were done trying to figure out. Why people ended up voting the way they ended up and there was a particularly interesting one out of Ohio state where they found people who said they had voted for Obama in two thousand twelve, and then for trump in two thousand sixteen, and they were trying to figure out why and a significant proportion of them. said they they did so based on something. They saw on the Internet. And you know that I was dying. I was endlessly dying Oh constantly dying. In fact, you know this interview. You were interviewing a ghost. was never ending. And then things like but Pope Francis endorsed Donald Trump. No. He didn't oh. Yes, he did. Where did you see that I saw it in the news? Where just you see the news I saw it on Facebook, right? And so I, you know I have a million of such crazy. counterfactual examples. But When you meet people who really do believe that they've been captured by a a worldview, and you try to inject facts into it, but sometimes you know they don't. They don't accept the facts. Pope Francis did not endorse Trou-. And call the Vatican and ask them, but but what they view as real comes to them on their screen. And, too many people were manipulated by you know the right wingers, a purveyors of all of this counter you know reality by the Russians who are quite good at influence operations, and that's the thing that you know. I really was struck by because I didn't understand it was happening during the two thousand sixteen campaign, but when I tried to make sense of what had happened and I wrote a book called what happened. I could sort all that out and see the threads of it, and how powerful what people see on the internet or what they hear on Fox News or what they hear from you know, Limbaugh, or Jones or any of these other people is and how they view the world, and then how they view, view somebody like me well. You might have to do a sequel. Sequel called. What's happening because this hasn't stopped I wanted to just read back to you. A few troubling things that suggest that maybe Democrats and Republicans are not living in the same reality. A Yahoo News YouGov poll conducted in May shows that forty four percent of Republicans believe Bill Gates as plotting to use a coded vaccine to implant microchips into people. Then you've got all. All the other lovely constituencies the Alex Jones people who were promoting the idea that you were running a pedophile ring out of a pizzeria basement and somebody ended up getting a shooting up that pizzeria for for that reason, the Cunanan folks who think there's a deep state plot against trump, and of course now this whole new wave of people who won't wear face masks because. They think that's a way to own the lives. How did we get to this point? Are An how do people who still live in reality? How are we supposed to combat this? This is the key question and I'm so glad you asked it because all too often, people in your position. Who are you know? established journalists and you you? You have a platform. Kind of say. Oh, that's so crazy! You know who who believes that, and so why would I even talk about it because it's? It's not real, but it is unfortunately all too real. I don't know the answer to your really important question. I have some thoughts about it, look. People. Unfortunately are influenced by the information that they receive. And we are living not only in a country divided by our politics right now, but by country divided by the channels of information. If. You're a Fox News watcher. There's a very recent study that pointed out. You didn't take covid nineteen seriously, because literally for weeks it was being you know derided and belittled as a hoax in line. What trump was saying on on Fox News and so people you know were given really not only false, but dangerous information that did not prepare them for What we've seen this pandemic, so we are divided by sources of information and. There's a lot of concern on the part of everybody who thinks we need to try to unite our country and try to get back to facts and evidence and making decisions that will benefit the vast majority of Americans. that. It's deliberate, you know. If you. If you create algorithms for Facebook, controversy drives more clicks. Conspiracies are just. Monitor from heaven. You know they will get people's attention. You mentioned the the Pizza Gate. Totally made up story about a pedophile ring in a in a pizza Rio with. which you didn't have a basement and the whole thing was just ridiculous and easily disproven, but people for whatever reason were fed this and they were feted deliberately, and they passed it on, and then they got invested in it.

"When bill was active, in Arkansas, there were some there was a lot of curiosity about me as you say, I started off keeping my maiden name, it was the name I practice launder and taught law and everything, and had written some you know some like academic sort of articles under, and so it seemed to me to make perfect sense, but it was quite disturbing to a lot of people, and eventually I just said fine I'll add you know Clinton to Rodham and that that will take care of that, but it was a real. Learning by by fire experience. But it wasn't as intense when he was governor of Arkansas as it turned out to be when he became president because when he was governor. I, still drove my car. I would take my daughter to school I would take her to ballet class I would go see my friends. I practice law I was. You know living a very full life in addition to being married to the the governor, and that was fine, and then bill put me in charge of helping to Reform Arkansas. Schools and people were grateful that I was willing to take this volunteer job and work hard for them, and we made some really very significant changes which I'm. Very proud of so. I didn't know that going to Washington would be. As different than even the experience that I'd been having in Arkansas until literally we were in the middle of the ninety two campaign and everything I said and everything I did and everything I wore, and all the rest of it was under this really bright spotlight, and then when Bill said Gee, you know we want to reform healthcare. Why don't you do? In Washington what you did in Arkansas. I've naively said sure. WHY NOT So it it is a trial by fire especially. If you WanNa, do something, if you even if you don't put yourself too far out into the public arena, you're going to get criticized for something by somebody. And I, had to learn early on in bills, political career to take criticism seriously, but not personally and by that I mean you know look? There are things you can learn from your critics. Because sometimes your friends won't tell you that you're messing up for that. You could do something better, but you know. Sometimes the critics have a point. But you cannot allow criticism to literally undermined your self confidence to destroy your own ideas and your dreams, and so trying to walk that balance all the time and I'm glad you brought up. what Michelle Obama said is because after a while you know people say oh, we know what you really think. Well, you say what you really think. And then you get hammered for saying what you really think, and so much of that is rooted. Let's be clear here in Misogyny and sexism. It's like okay. Yeah, it's fine to have an opinion, but I wanted to agree with my opinion. Or why can't you smile more? Or why can't you wear different kinds of closer a different hairstyle? Has An opinion about a woman in the public arena as a first lady as Michelle Obama, certainly discovered, or certainly as I, did with that, but also as a candidate on my own as an officeholder on my own. and. And Young Women. Asked me all the time you know. What advice can you give us? If you know I'm thinking I'd like to think about politics or public career I said again I'll go back to my. You know one of my favorite Americans. Eleanor Roosevelt, she said if a woman gets into the public arena, she'd better grow skin as thick as the height of a rhinoceros. You just have to be ready to be criticized and you have to be prepared if you're going to go, speak about something. What you're talking about I, mean one of the funny things that happened during the two thousand sixteen campaign is occasionally I would be criticized for being prepared. Well, we now know what the opposite of preparation is seen that unfortunately for three and a half years so you just you just have to dig down deep and. It's one of the reasons why I think the OBAMAS certainly have talked about this. You oftentimes shrink your circle. You know you go back to people. You've known forever you go back to. A really tight circle of trusted aides because you don't know who to trust and you're not sure how you're going to be viewed or or misinterpreted or taken out of context, so yeah I think it happens to people in public life in general, but I think women with strong opinions who expressed themselves who take on tough issues are often the subject of even more intense and sometimes. Criticism. We'll on a related point. In two thousand eight were running for president for the first time and ended up becoming the first. Female candidate to win a delegate bonding presidential primary in new. Hampshire but I want to remind our listeners what preceded that which was that? So you start at the Iowa caucuses finance third, which was I know disappointing to you you now go to new, Hampshire ahead of the primary, and there's some sort of a meeting with voters, and you appear to become emotional while talking to somebody about how passionate you are about what you do. And it was only after people felt they had seen. You show emotion that the tides turned and you ended up winning in New Hampshire. What does it say that people needed to see you cry? What does that say about? US As a society. I've thought a lot about that. Because people do say, that was a real turning point, I mean it was such. An intense focus period because I think the. I will caucus was less than a week before the New Hampshire primary. Everybody was running on fumes. Everybody was exhausted. People were under so much pressure, and clearly as you say, you know it was Obama and Edwards and I who were left out of what had started off as a big field. and. I must have done I. Don't know six seven big events every day. As soon as I hit the ground in new, Hampshire and I wasn't getting any sleep and all the rest of it. And so when I was in this sort of intimate setting, because you know, you'd alternate big rallies with trying to actually talk and listen to voters I was in like a coffee shop restaurant, and this woman says well. How how do you do it? Literally, my eyes did well up. Tear didn't drop, but my eyes welled up, so that was clearly leaving emotional. Hitting emotional chord and that's when I talked about it and I about how important I thought it was what we were trying to do all that. And it's fascinating because. I, you know I didn't know that question was coming and I certainly didn't know how I would respond, and how vulnerable I was, because I was so tired and everything was happening. Because usually if a candidate cries, it's over. You Know Pat Schroeder who was one of our savvy smartest members of Congress who ran for president. concluded she had to. You know, withdraw and tears came in literally hope she continues to live a very. You know full and wonderful life, but her obituary will say she cried Ed, Muskie and big debate was tears, or was it. You know snow that was melting on his face, but it was considered disqualifying. So what happened to me because I, somehow was sort of in the you know the the neutral zone. Yes, show emotion, but not too much emotion. It ended up not hurting me and obviously I ended up winning New Hampshire the first time. A woman ever won any contest in American presidential campaigns, so it's fascinating to try to unpack all of this and you know. Ned in the documentary tries to do that I mean she tries to sort of pull the curtain back. So people get a view of what's happening and then fast forward. There's another scene from the two thousand sixteen campaign. Again talking to a group of women, and in this case, I think it was in the Philadelphia. Suburbs and a woman says a lot of people think that women can't be president because you get to emotional. And I laughed because I said well. You know a lot of people don't think I have any emotion. So, you're always trying to walk this really narrow tight-wire between. Being yourself for better or worse here I am take me as I am and sort of meeting the expectations that people carry around literally in the back of their heads about what leaders look like what presidents looked like how women are supposed to act everything that goes into the the complicated assessment that we bring to looking at women in the public arena, so another thing that Democratic candidates have deal with, and you had to deal with this two thousand eight and two thousand sixteen are people who literally exist on a diet of. Glenn Beck in the morning. Rush Limbaugh in the mid. Day Hannity Evening Alex Jones on the weekend. What do you think somebody who who was subsisting on that sort of a diet? Actually believe about you going into the ballot box. Oh my Gosh Scott I mean. I would have friends of mine, and this happened more in two thousand sixteen. Who would go out knocking on doors for me? People literally I had known since kindergarten people whose weddings I had been in who families I knew well et Cetera..

In one thousand, Ninety five for instance, she traveled to Beijing to address the Fourth World Conference on Women and famously declared in front of an audience that did not necessarily share her sentiment quote. Human rights are women's rights and women's rights are human rights. Close quote. Meanwhile back stateside. America was becoming increasingly polarized and Hillary became a particular lightning Rod. That of course did not deter her from doing anything. In two thousand, she became the first first lady ever elected to the United States Senate. Representing the State of New York for the next eight years through the crisis of nine eleven and its aftermath. In two thousand eight, she unsuccessfully sought the Democratic nomination for president, but the next year became the first former first lady ever appointed to a presidential cabinet position when Barack Obama who had defeated her, and then subsequently defeated. Senator John McCain became the forty fourth president of the United States and asked her to serve as his secretary of state. She held that position during his first term, visiting an unprecedented one hundred twelve countries during her tenure, while also famously being present in the White House situation room for major moments like the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. And then in two thousand sixteen, she ran for president again this time, winning the Democratic nomination, which made her the first female ever to be the standard bearer for US political party in a presidential election. On election, day November two, thousand sixteen, she received sixty, five, million, eight, hundred, fifty, three, thousand, five, hundred and fourteen votes more than any candidate for president from. Had ever received with the exception of Obama. But, in a shocking upset causes of which are still being debated, she came up short in the Electoral College, making her only the fifth person to win the popular vote lose the electoral vote and meaning that blustery businessman Donald Trump. WHO's campaign had centered on a promise to quote lock her up close quote among other out their positions would become the forty fifth president of the United States, and that the glass ceiling for women in politics would remain on shattered at least for now. Over. The tumultuous nearly four years since the Election Secretary Clinton has largely stepped away from the spotlight, except to attend trump's inauguration to release a memoir entitled what happened to Endorse The two thousand twenty candidacy of Joe Biden, and to appear a four-part Hulu Docu series about her life in times that was directed by the Oscar nominated filmmaker, net-bursting and entitled Hillary. It began streaming on March. Sixth has been very well received, and on Monday was named the year's best limited documentary series by the critics choice real TV awards. That same day I spent an hour teleconferencing with Secretary Clinton who was at the home that she shares with former President Clinton in Chappaqua New York. And over the course of our interview, one of the longest that she has given the seventy two year old address my questions about not only the Hulu Docu series, but also the major turning points in her life, the sexism hatred and conspiracy theories that she has faced throughout her time in public life and the toll. It all has taken on her. The two thousand sixteen election, and why she believes it turned out the way it did. The impact of trump's time in the Oval Office less far and the urgency of denying him a second term. Several hypotheticals like what advice she would give pre two thousand, Sixteen Election Hillary if she could go back in time whether she would be trump if she were on the ballot this coming November, and whether he should be locked up after he leaves office plus much more, and so without further ado, let's go to that conversation.

You don't know this number but and then I just launched into my pitch and he's like Oh yeah no I know I know what you're your offer was and he said I would rather stick a needle in my eye. I said okay. I don't think there's a lot of convincing to be done. Yeah Hillary there are so many slights in this film. It's like bleeding to death. Mathausen paper cuts the little things that are said in passing that seem in isolation nation terrible but in cumulation horrific it. And that's the idea of how women law students were treated at Yale. The judge who asked you to twirl around while here at the podium. There's a line that Chris Matthews has I won't even dignify repeating a TV announcer calls. You the Bishops Yuppie from Hell all all of those little things over the course of documentary to me met a very lasting impact of what is casually said but is so hurtful. You're right John and and I think ninette did a masterful job of weaving that in because again it's not just about me and the relentless belittling and demeaning and dismissing is is often either ignored or absorbed in a way that you don't fully appreciate the impact of as you move through your life so one of my concerns. Is You know you have to develop such tough skin. You don't want to be battered and hurt broken by a constant belittlement. But you also don't want to be so impervious that you can't absorb whatever legitimate criticism might be coming your way so very early on. I kind of developed develop this mantra to take criticism seriously but not personally That doesn't include the harassment and the insults. Because that's in a different category but a lot of the language that is still used today about women in the public arena. China has the same impact. And I just hope that this I hope that this documentary as S. People Watch it will spark conversations like the one. We're having so that it's not. It's not off limits to say. Wait a minute you know why I wide is this still part of the ongoing dialogue about women's roles and women's rights and of course. I think we're going through a real backlash clash so I think the conversation is even more important. I don't want to quote Bart Simpson in such a serious conversation. But I'm going to please do please as Dan Bart Simpson says. He's didn't make this up damned if you do damned if you don't and there's a moment in the fourth episode where you're an debate and Donald trump is stalking talking you. He's physically behind you and the document you've say in real time that you're aware that he's standing behind you and as you're speaking about some very important issue you're playing out all Lee scenarios. What would happen if I turn around? I can't because this is how we'll play. But what have I ignore him. This is how play and that seems to be a constant theme throughout the documentary documentary. That if you go one direction people will criticize you for doing that. Another group of people criticize you for not doing that. Your stock at so how many points in your life that any decision is going to have a polarizing effect. Yeah because you know that word polarizing I think about it a lot because clearly. It's often the way that I'm described. Some of the people that Net tried to get to be interviewed for this film. Are certainly a lot more polarizing than than I think I am but is Newt Gingrich described as polarizing. He may be described as a lot of things but he's hardly ever described as polarizing and the incident that John just referred to in that second debate. You know I knew exactly what he was doing. It was Alpha male writ large. You WanNa know what a president looks like. This is what a president looks like. Not This woman not not this girl and I'm GonNa show you how dominant I am and so I'm up there and I'm going okay. What do I do do I turn around and say back off you creep? I'm not intimidated by you. Which I knew would have polarizing effects and it would also raise the issue like you know if she can't handle him how she going to handle Vladimir Putin well? I would add a heck of a lot better than the current guy so because I've been in the public eye for a long time but even before I practiced law tried lawsuits and all that I have worked with and against countless men who come in all sizes and shapes all sorts of hairstyles. And they're judged on who they are but when a woman walks into that arena. Everybody unloads on her every single feeling or reaction then that they have about women in the public is so what I did. If you if those of you saw it was do nothing you know just like I did back when I took the law school test. Just do the job and hopefully people will say. Hey you know I'd rather have somebody who is not acting like that dealing with the serious problems we have in the world up next on the frame more of John Horne Conversation with Hillary Clinton and filmmaker in the net bursting esteem at the Sundance Film Festival.

The former first lady and secretary of State is the subject of the new four part Hulu Documentary Hillary Hillary Ninette bill and Hillary marriage is essential part of the story especially in the latter half of the documentary series. Why did you think it was important? And I WANNA ask you about interviewing Bill Clinton in an asking him about his marriage and what those interviews were like well. I thought it was important for several reasons. I mean one. They have been in partners in many ways for fifty plus years so part of it was a love story. The other thing you know we do spend half hour of the series on on the impeachment. The Monica Lewinsky incident. And we really. I tried to deal with it very much from a personal perspective and not because there's this salacious interests but because so much of secretary Clinton's life following that was judge in her perception option is particularly if she was running for office when she was running for Senate when she was running in a wait and very much when she was running sixteen. I can't tell you the number of educated Liberal Female Friends of mine who would say to me. Oh I can't vote for her. She didn't leave her husband. Who or what is it like watching that footage of your her husband offering up his explanation rationalization for what he did with Monica Lewinsky and about how? I think it's fair to say that you are paying the price for his sins. Well that's pretty dramatic. Couldn't have done a documentary about my life and not done a documentary commentary about my marriage and like every marriage. I know we've had ups and downs but ours of all played out in public after Nineteen Lean Ninety two or so you know it was. It was difficult talking about it answering questions. You know that that is not my favorite way Spend the afternoon but I was very committed to being as forthcoming as I could be in working with. Ninette and bill was too. There are two impeachment trials in this series one when you go to Washington to work on the impeachment of Richard Nixon. Obviously obviously the impeachment of Bill Clinton. There's another impeachment trial going on right now. That didn't make your deadline. And if but if you were being interviewed dude now for this documentary about what's happening in Washington. What would your thoughts be? Yeah I did. I worked on the impeachment inquiry staff of the House Judiciary Committee in one thousand nine hundred ninety four and among I tasked at a very young new lawyer was studying what the framers meant by impeachment in the Constitution. Particularly what crimes and misdemeanors I mean. One of my other jobs was listening listening to the tapes and comparing the transcriptions. The White House gave us with what was actually on the tape. which is very very similar to what we are experiencing with this impeachment? And you listen to this and you could literally listen to Richard Nixon and it. It was obvious that he was obstructing justice he was abusing power. He was defying the Congress and once the house. Judiciary Committee voted that Republican leaders in the Senate went to see Nixon in the White House. And said you will be impeached. You should resign because there is proof of abuse of power obstruction of justice contempt of Congress and and Nixon did so fast forward to where we are now. I don't think it could be any clearer. That what the founders feared is at the core of the articles of impeachment against trump. And look you. You don't have Republicans like there were in nineteen seventy four to say this has to end and you have to go hillary the end of this documentary and I'm sure a personal personal story left my wife and I in a spirited debate. I found it somewhat pessimistic. She founded optimistic. But in terms of what you think are the takeaways. What do you hope people take away from it? And how would you assess that optimistic pessimistic. Take my wife and I had a fascinating John. I don't WanNA polarize your family. It's already already polarized. Oh well I remain fundamentally optimistic. Because I really can't believe that we're going to to destroy.

"We know that they're still in contact with the Russians we know these things so we have to assume that it sent worked for them why would they quit I think Donald Trump is Vladimir Putin's dream he said that the biggest catastrophe I think in history was the collapse of the Soviet Union as a former KGB guy he is intent upon undermining democracies and trying to lay the groundwork for a resurgence of Russian. greatness as he posits and Donald Trump is delivering that to him on a daily basis I don't know why exactly I don't know what Putin has on him whether it's both personal and financial I assume it is but more than that there is this bizarre adulation trump has for dictators and authoritarians he dreams of being able to order people to do things and make them do it he has no democratic instincts really and I saw that when I was of state and traveled one hundred twelve countries one of our big problems where people got themselves elected and then became authoritarian and then did everything they could to rig elections everything they could to make sure that they were never forced out of power that is his game plan that is what he's trying to achieve and it's terrifying to me because you know scholars like Professor Timothy Snyder who wrote that great little book on tyranny they've told us what the game plan is but I still think people have a hard time believing that David it's like really oh come on on you know that can't really be true and so part of what we have to do is alert the campaigns try to protect them work with people like scare colder and others who are trying to protect the voter registration and the actual voting process try to raise the alarm about the breaches our election systems try to stand up against the misinformation weaponization of information the propaganda but they're going to have unlimited money I think the amount of money that the trump campaign and the RNC is raising right now we'll be really hard to compete with and it's not that money shins and a Democrat this time you saw trump asking for China's help I made a joke on Rachel Maddow last spring that you know Democrats are just I China if you're listening fine trump's taps returns are media would richly reward you said where does this end if ever the adversary of ours is going to mess with our elections you know I think that they did affect the outcome of this past election but more than that they sewed so much divisiveness and distrust you can't have a democracy that is functioning making decisions which were not right now if people are so divided and so angry and we've got the left and the right and everybody mad at each other and that just benefits somebody like trump and his allies.

But my dad has been a pilot, his whole life. My mother taught first grade her whole life. They legit have never done anything else in their very happy in. That is awesome. But that's also not real.
