"Yeah. You're getting you know, and then these articles talked about imposter syndrome, which is so so common to women, and it's funny because one of the women in one of these pieces, we read I think in the cut was talk was like a PHD from Cambridge like the last person that should have imposter syndrome and she had it in spades. And you know, she talked talking to herself in positively talking to herself was one of the ways that she got out of it. And I think it's so interesting. I mean, I've had I've struggled with imposter syndrome from for so long and one of the things that I started doing I don't know a couple years ago was like I would be nervous about a situation. What you know? I don't know performing or television or whatever the fuck it was and I would just before going onto the stage. Oh, just be like begin your fucking professional your fuck. Being professional, and I would just like repeat that over and over your fucking professional and with the Curson everything the fucking part is very important. And and I think that was you know, one that's one of the ways I try and combat my imposter syndrome because that's like why at what point you know? It's like I can't I can't be like ten years into this profession and be like, I'm just in amateur comic, you know, or whatever. They professional when I have a friend. That's like in education, and she you know, was like getting this promotion, and she was like I'm going to ask for a raise. And you know, how much did I asked where I was like ask for you know, when she's like, I know she'd done all the research knew how much like her. Yes, it made whatever I was like ask for as much as your boss made it when she was like, oh, no. She had more experience. I was like, yes. So just ask for what she made. And then they'll come back and say no way, we've got right? Don't make their decisions for what women. Do we decide in our brain? Like, oh, this person is X amount of experience. So I'm not worth that. I'm worth this whereas manner, just like, oh, yeah. Two hundred thousand dollars. We're always making ourselves small smaller. And I feel like it's taking that. That idea of like remembering the facts, not the emotions. And actually, I think it's useful for me is then thinking like, okay, one was a time that maybe irrationally I felt overly confident. Oh, no that I'm really good at things and just channel that instead. So he's so maybe in fact, yeah, I know, I'm tracing this back in my childhood. I think the reason I'm so confident is I have three brothers. There. It is. I was raised like a boy, and I act like a boy that it's amazing. But then I have a breakdown every six months girl. Right. And it's always when I'm on my period. Gear. One of the things that I thought was really great one of the tactics is to be curious because it felt like if felt like something the council keeps you in the moment. I think part of the problem is we're a little like overly, you know, when you lack confidence it's like, your it's your lacking, the communist because you're spending so much time in your own thoughts and being so introspective about like in the many ways that you could possibly suck. Right that you're not even noticing the shit. That's around you. But being curious makes you observe the shit around you ask questions about it. Ask talk to the people around you. And I noticed actually one of the things that I I like to talk to other to people before I go on stage. I don't like to like be alone in a green room and just like being who, you know, like, I just like to Chitty chat with whoever will talk to me before a show and that because it gets me out of my head, and it doesn't give me the time to like hate myself. And I think that's. The be curious thing is and I've heard some actors actually, I think she said this publicly, but my my my my man worked with Julianne Moore once and saw this that she's real chatty in between takes..

"I'm very conscious of literally everything I say around my boys because I don't want to inform what they think about themselves, and then they leave, and you know, on on a macro scale, one of those things is women are bad at math. And I remember when I was in grad school because I have a master's degree in public policy. Not a big guys stop talking about it. Slur of the arts in. We know who is I was with in class. We were doing it was like it was like a an economy metrics, or whatever, and we were like using calculus, or whatever and this woman from and I think she was from Belarus was really good. And I remember being like like, I'm I I got like a four five AP calculus. It's fine. But like, so I was like pretty decent. But I always felt like all I'm not really good at man, I have to work harder because I'm not really good. You know? And I I said to myself for decades, you know, decades, I'm only twenty. And the and this woman was like, I don't understand this thing with American women that would this like they're not gonna every American woman. I know says that and in Belarus, everyone is like women are so good at math. It's just like a completely different. Stereotype like women are so oh women are the ones that are going to maslow's fucking women. So good at math. And like, and I was like, what are you serious? She's a cat's like just Americans do that. I don't I don't understand. I'm really good at math. I tell everybody. It's like, oh, it's just a thing. We've you know, I said to myself at some point or someone I heard something exactly like some and clearly are good at actually probably great at math. You know? And I'm great at so many things Cody like, I can't list them. All right now. Hey, I will tell you. I know all the things I'm good at the things that I'm not gonna I'm like, I'm not good at that. That's fine. It's like why are we confirming reconfirming? These things memory is not are not facts. And that's really a really good one. The other thing that's worked really well for my confidence and Jenny. I'll I'll tell you. This is becoming a mom because I literally don't give a fuck about anything anymore. Well, I you talked me out of it. Now, you're trying to talk to do this thing to that. Like, oh like after had children. I was like I'm sorry women are the weaker sex. Are fucking kidding me. I grew to humans in my fucking wound. And then push them out of my vagina, and I'm the weaker sex. No fucking way. And you know, my husband is amazing and is a wonderful, dad. But like women still do all the shit like all of everything is in my brain. Yeah. We run, and he is extremely helpful. But, but I just it baffles me that that has somehow become the narrative that we and that women don't feel like they can be like confident, you know. It's it's insane. It's insane. We run the world. We literally run the world because we're mothers. And we're, you know, like, we don't run the government, unfortunately. But hopefully soon it's just like, yes. Of course. If you talk about like who runs the household. It is always a woman. So why is it in saying that we talk about women not running the country? I mean, of course, women should run the country like. Does. So anyway, have the all the confidence in the world. Now that I'm a mom mostly because I again, I just don't care about anything. But like when a when a guy on the street will like whistle at me. And whatever I'm like, are you I am a fucking woman who had children do not treat me like like. I couldn't look pretty fans day. Yeah. I mean as my vice everyone have children. No, that's not terrible. It's also getting older as you get older your. Like that shit. I'm not reinventing myself, I'm always trying to strive to be better person. Or, you know, but but in general like this is it. Yeah..

"And it just makes me constantly think I'm dying or someone just guilty for stupid reasons. Like, I every time I see someone's Kickstarter campaign for like a film. They're trying to make if I don't donate to it. Then I feel guilty. And that it's like someone I barely know. Or whatever why do I feel guilty about everybody's kicked our a campaign? That's crazy. People dying. Kicks. I always think of MRs peacocking able to dying hippie and she slams. No. But I think like, oh this person has a dream. They're trying to make a movie. Oh, you know, I believe in the in the hope. Yeah. Yeah. No. There is sorry. No, I do think that there's something to be said for trying to curb the recipient like trying to educate the people reading Facebook and trying to figure it out that way because it is crazy to think like, you know, free speech is quite important. I would say, yeah. Yeah. On on the tattoo, it the top level of importance. And so I appreciate that creating standards is wild. Well that how do you go about hunting accents? Or that is fair takes into account things like comedy and things like different opinions and Cam what's like sarcastic. You know, right. I murdered this person sarcastically. I wanted you know, you're up to you have to look at the I think that might have been the problem is. Yes. Women in the paragraph. Missed the subtitle. Xactly exactly if my if my joke shirt had just like read a little bit better. But this is why young people are not on Facebook, though. Because I feel like they're like, dude. This is fucking crazy. I can't it's interesting because we're like we're fixated on on Facebook and all of the things they've done wrong. They've done a tremendous number of things totally absolutely wrong in the last several years. But I don't see why Instagram is insulated from the same things. Like, I don't see. I mean, you can post video you can do all of the stuff. I mean, there's actually no real reason why Instagram is any better. I think it's the well Instagram is the is owned, by Facebook's. Yes. Say that. But also Instagram has crazy. Well, I has very intensive policies in some ways like our podcast art for web of women has lips on it like normal talking China lips. No. I wanted to say what I'm saying about isn't even when I wanted to say, but also not that. And they wouldn't let us promote a tweet with our podcast art because they said that it was suggestive we lips Instagram on Instagram where the lips around a penis. No well have been. Yes. There was a penis lips. I don't understand why God that's a very. Also, like, I don't know like Valentine's Day symbol. It's you know, it's coming. It's also. Yeah. It's. Also on Instagram you can't link to things. So so it doesn't care can go down a rabbit hole of. Yes. Oh, I read this on like blue state dot com, or whatever that like run me to this other thing or whatever. So I and also people don't really I mean, it's starting to be that way where people are sharing things, but it used to be just just pictures and video and like now people are writing comments and like things like that. And they're slower about in Facebook's react new announcement that came out yesterday about this making Facebook more of a like one on one communication system. That's like encrypted end to end. And we'll be as because of this share ability feature on Facebook, which made it kind of wonderful for awhile. But then also has led to its downfall and fifth in and a loss of fifteen million users last year. I mean, so Facebook is it really feeling the pinch on that? But just in terms of the moderators. What's interesting is I feel like each moderator is experiencing a hundred fold what an average person experiences at a lighter level, right? You know, the feelings of anxiety and 'isolation one of the things I found so interesting was that people moderators are now more likely to believe conspiracy theories because of their job moderating. Like there was a guy. Who's like? Oh, no. I now believe since I've been doing this job..

"And then when the lie they get caught in the line there like, you know, what we don't talk about it. But if he did do it, it's totally legal. And in the exactly it's that's a really common refrain from every whenever they're caught in a lie. Everything is legal because he's the president. Yeah. Literally allowed to do. Anything is is arrested the minute. He walks out of the office of the presidency because literally Michael Cohen is going to prison for shit. They did together. So I mean something today that was like reports find that Trump is running for reelection to avoid jail. Oh, I was like can you just cut him a deal? So he doesn't. You don't go to jail it. Just don't run in before we go on for the security clearance thing. I wanted to say one thing, which is that the thing with Jared. Kushner, actually, really do I do find alarming that he has top security clearance, because he the Saudi Crown prince had bragged that he had Kushner quote in his pocket that was like he that Kushner, so malleable and flexible, and like that's very alarming because those are not qualities that you want. And I don't think people realize I'm we don't realize the depth of the entanglements with the Trump organization and the Trump family. I mean, this is an international organization that has been building structures in countries all over the world and trying to do deals. They are also notoriously shady, right like any any real estate company from the seventies and eighties and nineties in New York City mean we all knew that like that was run by the mob. You know, Jared Kushner's dad went to jail. You know, it's all. Shady so we we don't know what their tax returns. Are. We don't know what they're a foreign entanglements. Are we don't know what they're promising in order to get you know, they haven't divested their their stakes in their company. So it's insane. To me that these people now if the keys to the car that is United States of America. They you don't know what they're promising in order to get a building put up or to get a permit passed or whatever. Yeah. Speaking, which Michael Cohen, actually produced checks this week that showed that that Donnie was writing him checks to repay him for the hush money payments from the White House. Now, I totally get multitasking. You know, what I mean, we all have to do it or my mom. I have. Yeah. Yeah. I'm Eddie your wolf right now doing my podcast. But I might I might slot in another thing. You know, what I mean that I have to do and I get it. I get it. Just generally you don't want that second thing to be criminal. You know what I mean? I just say rule of thumb as a rule of thumb I would say that. But it's not criminal 'cause. The president did legal league. It's extra not criminal. If it's in the Oval Office. Yeah. Although I think generally, it's a good guiding principle. It's just the problem is there's just so much. There's so credibly. That's high crimes and misdemeanors. Right. It's absolutely is. I'm no lawyer, the Democrats are in a really tough position because impeachment is by nature a political process because you have to have bipartisanship, right? Yeah. So you know, they they're doing everything. They can it doesn't matter. They could impeach him right now. But it won't matter because the Republicans will not leave his side. So they're trying their best now to just get as much information as they can't out there to turn public opinion. So that maybe the Republicans will turn, but really like he's never going to be impeached and forty percent of the country's with them. No matter what ten percent is not paying attention at all actually, probably I really I I admire those ten percent not paying attention. Good for that. I'm you know, and they're just sitting there and the economy's doing well coffee twice butter. You know, like every morning they wake up they don't think about it. They just go to the job..

"He likes says a little thing. Like, we love you so much, you know, like, and then just goes and goes and goes it goes and then explodes because he's. Speaking of the troops. The the reason thing right was so tell the people went happened with the races. So I don't even know how long into the speech. This was our learn our one hundred eighty he talks Trump talks about going to Iraq and meeting with troops. And was like, I met general one general to general three and one of the generals. I say what's your name? And he says reason, and he just does this whole bid about this guy's name being raisin. Right. And then his last name being Kane. Yeah. And it was I mean, the whole thing was just like it was drunk. The thing is that you don't drink but your drunk. Yeah. I think what would be what's interesting to me is that people like were laughing and stuff like that. He clearly had the audiences intention, and they were laughing, but I think on a joke level has material doesn't work. For me. Like as it does always feel like he's in on the joke, or like, you know, we're we're laughing at him. Because the the things he's saying are like crazy. And I understand, you know, an I do get annoyed when sometimes we don't. We don't recognize that he's making a joke. Like, we, you know, like, it's not useful for us to pounds on absolutely everything. Like Tim apple he called Tim cook yesterday. Tim apple which I really really. Yeah. It's like the internet exploded like oh ten apple. He called him. Tim, apple news face. Right. I was like all right guys. Let's let's let's take it back notch. Like that. That's a simple. He there's a million people. He sees in talks about like that didn't bother me. I'm gonna thought it was hilarious. But I was like let's not like right that loser. Shit over it. That's not tweeted hamburgers. So I think. Fine. I do think that part of the problem, even when he is admittedly joking is that he shouldn't be joking, right? The problem is is the timing isn't sort of ideal. Although I do think like, you know, we've all been in situations where we're really talking to our people like the people who, you know, love us unconditionally. And that's what he did. And he did it for over two hours. Yeah. I mean, it's really frustrating to me as a comedian. Because I am like, I'm a comedian and admittedly. I think we can all admit that. I'm like way funnier than Trump and yet he has been on Saturday Night Live, and I haven't. I think we can all agree that that's sort of shitty. Really trying. Shitty. Well, I think in terms of like if you it's weird to look at the the scripted like sorry, the transcripts of these speeches because that's when you really get a sense of like not not being able to follow the thread of his thoughts. And he said, you know, I'm totally off script right now. And and this is how I got elected by being off script true. And if we don't go off script our country is in big trouble folks, because we have to get it back like this syntax, the subject clause agreement the all of that. You're just having it just I have a hard time following literally what are you talking about? And so, and I think that's the stuff where that's that's concerning because it can easily be like mistake like that could easily seep into international diplomacy. You know, like weird mistakes that. Don't make sense or whatever could like kind of derail something that is important. I don't know. Oh, yeah. Well, they're all those reports about how he's demanded things in writing that people on his staff have just like removed from his desk to be like, no, no, right. Right. You this isn't for you. Right. Exactly. And that's the stuff. So. Okay. So he was the other thing about CPAC is that. I think you know, this is right here. I have never been to one. But I heard that he Have been. you been have you? I mean, I really wanna go. But I heard that they used to kind of be more fun because there was like the tea party gang. There was the Breitbart gang. There was like a real bash..

"And I just I don't believe that the right owns patriotism and it stuff like that. Not only the shows that he's a weird and unhinged doesn't believe in decorum or etiquette or anything. But also that the that he believes that the right owns patriotism. He's like, you know, they don't it's also it's one thing to be patriotic. It's another thing to be nationalistic, and the things that he does, you know, it's like if you hate this country get out that sort of thing is like, oh, okay. I mean, I love our country because we're allowed to have a dialogue on a discussion. We're allowed to have differing views. So when you do things like hug the flag like these things are just it's like I care more about the idea of the flag and the idea of patriotism, rather than what the country really is about which is, you know, democracy, right? Yeah. Because it was like hunting of the flag coupled with you know. Hardline views on immigration. Yeah. And just he just he is rambles. I mean, like something is wrong. You feel like this was more. Well, it was longer harming. Yeah. Is there something about it that like more alarming than everything else? No. I think that's everything about it is exactly what we've been seeing from the beginning. This just happened to be way longer. But yeah, I mean, the fact that I don't understand people can look at him giving a speech like that. And not say like oh, something severely wrong with him. He one of is this a. I feel like one of the things are released it out to me was I read a Washington Post article that said that this turned into one of the biggest days of falsehoods for him. Not the biggest one day. It was like third or fourth most in a way that was just like in those two hours with everything that went on like what are the most days? How did he exceed this at any point? It's because he does this thing he has this pattern. He says something that's like a little idea, and then the crowd goes wild. And then he heightens heightens and heightens, which means he lies and lies and lies. It's the same thing that he did the one time that he told the military. They were getting they were gonna get they got a raise do you? Remember that? How was that? Not a bigger story. He told people Marzilli I starting their license. Yeah. I remember that. But I don't remember that because he was he was gay with Sperry in Afghanistan or Iraq Afghanistan. I think. And as I went to see the troops. And he said you guys got a raise Obama didn't do that. He didn't give them a raise. Right. Did not give them a Ray. But he tested the waters..

"Like is this normal? There's so many balls in the air floating in your brain. It's like you have a whole other person's schedule in life. Yes. Into your schedule in life.

But is else, but he's great. He has what I would my when we arrived. He like was staying with a like, a friend was sitting in whatever. And like when we got home. I wasn't there yet for like an hour. He was there. Just with my mom, whatever doesn't matter. So my mom was like, oh my God. He was looking around the apartment he was so upset he thought like, where's where are you in the baby? Like, he loves the baby. He's always checking in them, the baby my dog is really doesn't matter. I'll shut up. It's great. No, the nation of listen to me tiger rather. I love nothing more than dogs and babies together a picture. I mean, I'm gonna show watcher. Yeah. I just really nothing about he's a look at my Instagram. Oh, did I I think I did. Anyway. Here we go we're gonna get into it with topic number one. So over the weekend. Donna gave a tight to our speech CPAC, the conservative political action conference in it. He talked about his inauguration his Tibo in someone named raisin. Those were my main takeaways from what was the longest speech in the history of American presidents, literally the longest each of the history of American presence. It was longer than the one speech from that president Harrison who gave the longest ever inaugural address outside in the freezing cold. Yeah. Mon because he was outside for so long. And then he days later this actually felt like that was so CPAC was inside. Right. Cpac was unfortunately indoors. So it he could just kind of go on and on. What did you guys get out of this speech that our president is mentally ill? I'm sorry. I'm saying it. I'm going on the record. Our president has Alzheimer's or something is wrong with them mentally. I am not a psychiatrist I cannot give a clinical diagnosis, but I believe it. He hugged the American flag. First time moment that really just keep sticking with me. The hugging of the flag. It really started things off with the bang. It was very confusing to me. And he can I say something about the hugging of the flag thing in general is that there's this notion that the right enough. I've said this before that the right has all the patriotism, and the left has all the hate this country. I don't understand I know. And I have long been really annoyed because I feel like I may just as big of a patriot. I grow up. I had an American flag that from congress in my bedroom growing up like I was so into it. I still have that flag..
