"The chance of you getting seriously ill or dying from. Kobe is effectively zero. If you look at the people that are being admitted to hospitals over ninety five percent of them are either not fully vaccinated or not vaccinated at all and so these vaccines are saving lives. They are reducing mortality another republican leader touting the importance and safety of the covert vaccines trying to undo the severe damage. That's been done by the malicious disinformation that has contributed to now a fourth wave of the pandemic. It's real and it is deadly for those who are unvaccinated also had former. Fbi director james comey famously said about his conversations with former president trump quote. Laurie i hope there are tapes. Well this morning. The washington post reporters behind the bombshell book about the final days of the trump administration. They have tapes. Carol leg joins us with those audio recordings of the former president. That in a lot more to cover on this thursday july twenty. Second but first willy will start on yesterday's move by nancy. Pelosi is being called unprecedented house speaker. Nancy pelosi rejected two of minority leader. Kevin mccarthy's picks for the select committee tasked with investigating the january six attack on the united states. Capitol now mccarthy is threatening a complete boycott nbc news capitol hill correspondent gara- hey cast details committee in chaos and egregious abuse of power plazas. Broken this institution. Republican leader kevin mccarthy withdrawing all of his selections for the january six special committee. After speaker pelosi announced she would reject two of his choices for the panel. Republicans now calling. The committee sham. While democrats vowed to push ahead the speaker writing that her unprecedented decision to not seat. Ohio's jim jordan or indiana's. Jim banks was necessary to protect the integrity of the investigation. The fact that she house rejected recommendations for two members who have indicated that a are not supportive of the objective of the select committee is consistent. With how serious. This committee is and how important is to have patriots serving on this committee. Non-partisans now just one republican remains on the committee. Wyoming's liz cheney appointed by the speaker alongside seven democrats defending the investigation to come. This must be an investigation. That is focused on facts. And the idea that any of this has become politicized. is really unworthy of the office that we all hold an unworthy of our republic garrett hake reporting from capitol hill force their joining us. Now co founder. Punchbowl news jake sherman. He's msnbc msnbc political contributor white house reporter for the associated press. jonathan lior. Doing yeoman's work on way too early this week and member of the new york times editorial board mara gaye. Good morning to all of you jake. Let me start with you and what we saw. On capitol hill yesterday perhaps predictable that it was going to go this way when jim jordan was placed on the committee but what strikes me sitting here is republicans are acting like two months ago. They did not have the chance to create the very commission that they're lamenting is not being created here which is nine eleven style commission only six republicans in the senate made that vote. It wasn't enough to clear the sixty vote threshold to create commission and it failed and now here we are with this select committee which is falling apart before our eyes. What's going on here. What happens next so what happens. Next willie is that we have in all democratic Panel that's what happens next. Jane plus liz cheney. That's exactly right. Appointed pointed nancy pelosi. Who has who said yesterday. She believes mccarthy should never be speaker. She agreed with pelosi's decision to remove. Jim benson jim jordan from the committee. So you know. I i'm not. I don't know what the politics of this are. I think to be honest with you. Willie if i had to kind of read the lines here from Pure political wing all talk about the subsidies and his second the pure political angle. They kind of got what they wanted. Right i mean. I think mccarthy didn't wanna participate in this and wouldn't have created it on his own volition point quite obviously and he doesn't he's not participating in it now. It's a shame because the again should be a partisan issue because a as somebody who was there that day it was a tragic incident That's number one number. Two what you said willie is the key point. Republicans are complaining about things that they had in their power to put in place. They voted against the bipartisan committee. A committee in which they would have had complete veto. Power over every Subpoena over everything that the committee did so. They threw that opportunity away several months ago. And now here we are. They say they're gonna do their own investigation. And really they said yesterday mccarthy banks jordan and all those guys on the committee and they're all men which a lot of people noticed in the capital What they said is that their top priority by wasn't a capital better prepared That's a fair characters. Fair question to be asking scheme of things i would not say. That's a lot of people top priorities. Generally speaking mccarthy pointed to the senate investigation which has been ongoing clearly. He's not very interested in. He said this he doesn't wanna committee with pelosi. And of course john muir mitch. Mcconnell two months ago whipped votes against the creation of a bipartisan. Nine eleven style commission to look into this so yesterday when you have minority leader mccarthy standing there talking about the sanctity of the people's house and what nancy pelosi you rolling. Your eyes is the minimum. They had the chance. Republicans had the chance to do the kind of investigation that they're talking about and they want us to forget that they passed on it. Yeah we just hit upon the deeply cynical. Play that this is now. The republicans are gonna emerge from this with their own with their own report which they will put up as a co equal to what the pelosi's the democrat plus liz. Cheney committee is going to do and they'll look different versions of the truth and they will try to water it down. It's the same sort of obscuring and trying to the fog machines to what happened on january. Sixth the continues the pattern from republicans. Downplaying the severity of that day. Which by the way we get new video every day but it underscores just how harrowing it was and how much worse almost it could have been had it not for a little bit of luck at some heroism from some capital police officers but this is just going to become another political talking point and they're gonna try to turn the page on this as quickly as they can bury it..

"Denison forum. I'm chris wilkinson denison forum. Today dr jim benson with us and to address a question ultimately about joy. But let's start first. We hear so today about the depths of despair and academic of discouraged their suicide and addictions so many things like is going on in our culture. Why do we have such from. You really can't talk about joy. Unless you i i guess. Start talking about the need for joy. The reason why we need joy in our culture right thanking about this a theological perspective. I would take us back to the division between soul and spirit. They're really in body and sold. It really unfortunately characterizes our culture and cuts us off from the god who is the source of joy. The god who is the source of life the only god that really is the source of that which our hearts most need six centuries before plato there was this philosopher named orpheus and he had this idea that your soul existed in a reincarnate state in it sent we would say and it was punished by being put in your body and the poll of life is to live in such a way. That when you die your soul can go back where it came from. Well that influence and influence plato fluids all western world so people in the west of this idea that there's the spiritual and the secular religion in the real world and sunday and monday so we've segregated god into a part of our lives. The romans had this transaction religion where you sacrificed to the gods the lesha crops. Keep you safe a war. Whatever it is you wanted. So you had this kind of standoffish relationship. With god where god just a part of your life. Rather than the lord of your life will. By making that decision we cut ourselves off from the god who gives life and gives eternal life from the god who was the source of joy from the god who was the source of that which we most need augusta and set. Our hearts are restless until they rest in him and were made that way. We just created like that. It's like cutting flowers off to put them in a vase. We can put them in water. But if they're not attached to the roots eventually they're going to die and that's where we are as a culture so then when a pandemic comes along or a terrible circumstance we don't have any place to turn because we've been cut off at the roots and the roots that are the basis of our joy. No longer are there. We've separated ourselves from god and were therefore a missing the joy that can be found. Only when we're connected to the lord of joy to the god who gives joy. Perhaps we've mixed up a couple of concepts here is the will say that we're going to be happy regardless of our circumstances when you hear that a lot you get this idea that if you're just right with god if you give enough money if you do enough church services if you're active enough in your religion that you'll always be healthy and happy kind of the health and wealth gospels kind of the well. That's not what jesus said. And john sixteen thirty three told his disciples in this world. You'll have tribulation. The great word translated tribulation flips is a weren't which was used for the weight that coarse grain into flour. He said in this world you will not you might or you could and the you was inclusive of all of his followers. If you're gonna live in a fallen world you're going to experience a fallen world. The world's gonna fall on you at times. You're just going to experience what that's like so you you think of jesus in the garden of seventy sweating drops of blood and crying from the cross. My my god mike. Why have you forsaken me. The bible does not promise happiness. And the reason for that is. Happiness is based on happenings. It's based on circumstances and our circumstances in this fallen world or two unpredictable and often are too difficult and too painful so christianity is not a naive religion. It's not a praise the lord anyway kind of idea that says that no matter where you are. You're supposed to be happy in those circumstances. That certainly wasn't jesus in the garden against semi. That's certainly not the experience that he offers us that he promises us. It's not happiness that we're after the joy so if we're not promised tackiness only follow. Jeez well what you ultimately are after hearing. This conversation is the joy of the lord and that's from the spirit. The bible says the fruit of the spirit is love joy. Peace patience has goodness faithfulness. Gentleness of control joy is a sense of wellbeing that transcends circumstance. It's not based on your happenings. It transcends your happenings. You can know the difference in the to even in difficulty. If you're experiencing the sense of wellbeing that comes from the holy spirit at work in your life that's why the bible can say rejoice in the lord always not rejoice in the world always rejoice in the lord always because joy is a fruit of the spirit so we follow jesus because he is lord we don't make him lord he's already lord he's already king of kings and lord of lords but when we follow him when we submit to a movie surrender our lives to his lordship when we asked the holy spirit to empower us to fill us in control us then. He manifests joy in our lives and through our lives as our witness to the world. Think of paul and silas in philippines in the book of acts singing hymns at midnight and the other prisoners listening to them. When you think of the joy of the lord joined the weakened have even the most difficult circumstance. That's an incredibly powerful witness. Troll world that assembling for happenings so the invitation here is to follow jesus as lord submit to the power of the holy spirit asked god to manifest his joy in and through your life and when he does that sees the opportunity to demonstrate the difference. Jesus makes in your life the dark of the room. The more obvious. The white the more difficult the circumstance. The more obvious. You're join will be if you'll follow. Jesus in surrender to him. Ask for the joy of the lord and three your life i close with thinking about one of the churches pastored a number of years ago. I had not been very long became acquainted with a member of the church. Who was dying of cancer dying breast cancer extremely difficult obviously horrifically painful. I was came by to see her. Quite often was with her the day before she passed away and to the very end of her life she never lost her joy even in pain even in grief even all that she was going through in that when she had no happiness about as she had a joy that was transforming an attractive. You could walk into a hospital room. And not since the joy of the lord did not want what she had and her joy to the end of her life was her powerful witness to a culture desperate for joy. So where do you find yourself today. Whatever your jail cell is. You can sing hymns at midnight. You can rejoice in the always if you'll ask the holy spirit to control you to empower you and you'll ask the spirit to give to manifest the fruit of joy in your life. You will do that and other people will want the joy of jesus they see in you. That's the promise of.

But I love every second. You know, it's unlike anything else you, you are they're immersed on another planet. You get a vacation really. Strenuous crazy Viki. That's not my idea of occasion, is hard as you do all year. Yeah, it really is. But there are people that we only see at the fair so you get that had come reconnect with those people, and they're coming from miles, and miles, and hundreds of miles away to come to the fair and sometimes other states. And we love every single. Second. Are you assume you're probably already planning this? What are you going to do this year? Will you have like do you need like a new thing each year? You kind of have to play the game between you have to have your classics, and then you have to introduce some new stuff. But this is our ten peer at the fair. So it's going to be hardy. All twelve days, we will be probably wearing party hats and, you know, blowing kisses. I like you is fundamentally. I mean, you are a gift store lifestyle store, but you really support not only are you local you support local brands to we artisans. We carry upwards of two hundred and fifty local independent artists in the twelve years, that we've been opened. We have paid back more than four million dollars to the local artist is that. You should be proud. We've been talking a little bit about this over Email in the last few weeks. And I, I mean retails not easy. These days really isn't and a lot of us are struggling, and what, what do you attribute that to other than just the I mean, the internet and things like that? But what has changed in the time since you opened? I like you the internet plays a big part of it. There's also a lot more accessible easy. When we opened we were the place, the hip and trendy place to get Minnesota goods. There's a lot of it out there. You know. Things like qualities and targets. Taylor doing it. So watching what you guys are doing. Yeah. We've been path, and now we have to kind of, you know, groom that a little bit. But. I also think that the pop up situation is playing a big part, there's pop ups a lot, though. And that is really showcasing the same kind of people that we do. We are there twenty four you know, I shouldn't say twenty four hours a day with online. But we are year round. So it isn't it isn't something that you have to schedule. We, we are there for you and you've done pop-ups yourself. Oh, yeah. We continue to do that. You know it's real hard. It's hard to run a store and do that. Isn't it takes time away from and kind of sucks. A little bit of the creativity out of the place that you really want to establish in call your home base to continually pack up and move and pull things from the shelves, and then someone comes in, and they want something and you don't have it because it's at the pop up know and things like that. So, so how do you keep innovating and keep it fresh and get people to come and shop, an actual physical store today? Well, I think the big part of it for us is that we know our customers when they come in they're greeted. We know the dog's in the neighborhood the people in the neighborhood. Let me of that really means. Really does have an awesome wall on the outside of the store. That is like one of the most popular places for people to take selfies, and tally is like the number one or maybe number two. But I think we were rated number one. Yes. To Graham spot.

This. We're decorating. Had a really great landlord that didn't care now. It's like I'm getting out there. Overall? What made you decide on the name, I like you for the store hard? It is to name a business. Doc. That's it. What it came down to is Angela. And I were driving around looking for locations, I had a little tiny thing that hung from rear view mirror that my husband had given me with a little boy painted on it. That said, I like you, and that's eventually, it was, like, why don't we just do that until great idea? Yeah. Two two. What do people want these days? What's what's hot?

He said love yourself. If there's no one else for you to love little did. He know that Wednesday February thirteenth is madly in love with me day to it man, ladies, especially everyday on this year, you can feel a little bit left out and lonely if you don't have a man in your life. It doesn't seem to bother you guys. I think as much as women every once in a while because it'd be a few Ballantine's days where I got a little melancholy didn't have somebody. But I got through it. I think it's easier for guys because this reason alone. I don't think guys feel things any less than women do or men women feel anything more than men. I think the big deal made about the holiday is less of a topic of conversation amongst men than it is with women. Yeah. If you're in an office, and there's a bunch of women around who have boyfriends or husbands or something eventually that conversation. We'll come up this week. What are your plans, we're doing? And if you're on the outs, you feel like I'm alone. They usually the guy doesn't get a lot of stuff. It's more guy buying flowers or whatever for your girl. And if you're around other girls getting that and your see where you could fill a little of that.

I know it's important to love yourself, and especially on a holiday that's built for couples. If you're single it can be a particularly trying time. However that being said, I don't think our society as a whole has any problem anymore with being focused on yourself. No. I think a lot of people spend an enormous amount of time focusing on themselves taking pictures of themselves. Posting those pictures Agar has a lot of self reflection in the world these days, maybe we need a little bit more looking out a little bit less looking in. Everybody's a little self-focused Reich.

It's my favorite shifts man, tortellini said best. I don't eat a lot of pasta anymore because it's just carbo demise. Well hill you you might as well just give inflate you're saying, I'm just I'm just before. Then why stop at three? I'll just keep going. Well, what's your that point? Who cares? But you'll be interested to know. There is an organization in the city of bologna in Italy, blogging about blog, not all bologna that is called the learned order of the tortellini and their entire existence is dedicated to the preservation of the tortellini, they're like a secret society just focused on tortellini. It's all four seven. They wake up toward Leany. They go to bed. They have meetings where they wear special red and gold hats that are shaped like toured Leaney. Do they wear a ribbon around their neck that has a gold tortellini hanging off of it? And they learned it order of the tortellini or the L O T is I like to call the lot a lot. Have a large membership in bologna and their purpose is just the preservation and celebration of did they meet daily was it once a month? This is gonna come as a shock to you.

He's telling you organization gave a lot of information. More importantly, what possible difference could make how many times a week. They make you go. I could see once a month get talking about tortellini, but every day talking about tortellini don't think it's their fulltime job. I think they have other things going on. Then they get together. Put a lot into the costume. They're tortellini hats. And they talk about how great tour to lean if they talk about other things under the guise of tortellini like it's strippers and poker. I'm sure they do like the Shriners Shriners. That's what it is. But tortellini. Insane. Not only are you besmirching the good name of the lot lot. But you're coming down on the torn Alenia.

There's also there's another one here from the article about a premier party for the rock. If remember the rock, it's a movie about Alcatraz and as they were doing a premiere party for it on l. Cottrell has there was a man named Jeff bunch who decided that sure. Alcatraz is a federal park patrolled by Park Rangers that you can't trespass on. But I would like to go to the premier at the unbreakable prison. Ersan and so he windsurfed in informal where love it, and he windsurfed into the premier and apparently climbed a hill got into the party and met Sean Connery and started having a drink with him before Park Rangers dragged him away. James kills me like you've got in the guys having a drink while you gotta drag him out now, like is he bothering Connery or can't he just have the win, like just let the dude, what are you? Gonna do. TOTO is Windsor for thing. Let him sail back to shore. He'll be fine. Get some point. If you make it all the way into the part you're not invited to. You should just get to stay. I agree. Well, they, yeah, because there's there's another one here to where I had never heard of them, but they're in EDM music duo called Peking duck, and they were having a concert, and there was a super fan of it named David Spargo and he was like, I wanna meet this band. And so what he did is he basically got in line for the VIP area. And while he was waiting in line edited the band's Wikipedia to say that he is right, which is great and. Say that he was one of theirs stepbrother. He was related to them. And so then when the guards were like, you know you, you're not on the list. He was like, but look like a pedia. And then he got in and told the band, he did it and they were like, that's awesome. Just hang out surfing in to see the rocket Alcatraz. That's awesome. Stocking abandoned, changing their Wikipedia profile to say, you're in their family, not cool security to make that guy leave that I would have had the guy frisked if nothing else, I would have him patted down. He does not get to have English on Connery. Sorry. No walls. Yeah. In hindsight, why would a bans Wikipedia page lists? They're step siblings. And why is this just your garden? Yeah, you're showing me something. I'm squinting at on your cell phone. That's all I need to see. Like I feel like every technology has like one round where people can use it to get into things. And then once that goes on every social media has one person who uses become huge, you know, like Dane cook with like my space and like and like roast or whatever. Rob Delaney on Twitter? Yes, exactly. Well, any anyway, Peking duck very, very famous. A marginally more famous musician as named John Lennon that guy, right, right, right in the tolls and he did some other things. And so there was a fan of his name. Jerry Levitan who was a teenager in nineteen sixty-nine in Toronto and just decided I would like to meet John Lennon though it'd be great and John Lennon was holed up in his hotel room with Yoko Ono not talking to anyone. He was not interested, but so then Jerry Levitan just went up to the room, sneaking by security and then knocked on the door and said he was with the press, and that was an he got in. It's amazing. This is the dark side of this allocate land was saying about, like people being creepy and coming into things. How did John Lennon die? A person was saying. Approach him, Mark, David Chapman thought. Yeah. Oh boy. Like that's where it's like, oh, that thing that's so neat and fun anecdote can easily turn dark with the exact ingredients just, yeah, we need to copy of of catcher in the rye and apparently early childhood head trauma. That's apparently at those two spices the recipe, and you have a dangerous Kumba. Oh man because Jerry Lewis and he apparently has story forgetting in was I'm with Canadian news and that worked, which is amazing. That's terrible. Alibaba's no news in Canada. Yeah, this fandom can be so dark and so positive, depending on just how people what people are going through, how they feel or it's it's a and that's even pre internet to both of those things. Yeah, I will say that we've spent, you know, most of this conversation on the positive aspects of fandom, it'd be easy to have an equally lengthy conversation about how it could be negative, but maybe it's important not to do that. There's some good ways and healthy ways and positive ways to be a fan of something. Yeah. And like if your phantom feels toxic, it's not the things full that's coming from inside the house. You got to fix that screaming at an actress because she was in Star Wars that the screaming is the problem, not the actress or the star. That's the what's the dark side of all this about like, oh, he's people influence the outcome of the show. It's like there's also that side a fan on. That's like, oh, the thing didn't go out the high wanted to go. So therefore it's bullshit and horrible. Yeah. I mean, I'm glad we're focusing on the positive elements of that, but there is also that weird thing. And this is the thing that happens with doctor who fan. I'm occasionally too is like there's this thing that happens where fans have decided that we know the thing better than the people making it like that. If they did something different than we would have done with it, they don't get the thing or they don't respect the thing. They don't understand the thing. And most time it's like, no, they just have a different story in their head than you do and brass just what happens like they were. They were given the keys to tell the story, and this is a story they came up with and like you can have conflict. You can be like, hey, I- critically, I don't think this worked the way they wanted it to a storytelling issue. But I think when you get to this point of like I am the only one who understands this thing and anybody else who looked it to a different lens as wrong. That's where fandom can be like a problem. And that's like the difference between like good phantom, I think that there's two types of fans in my opinion or like there's obviously like subcultures of all of these. But if you're a fan and you love thing, you either. Go, though. I love this thing so much. I want other people to love it, and I want everybody to share this love with me and anybody who didn't. But I want to hear why you like this thing. And that's where I think like using after who is an example. There's so many years of the show, and there's so many ways. This show has totally been difference that I can have a conversation with somebody who loves actor who, and they might love it for an entirely different reason than I do like a different era than I do. And like they might have a toy reason why connected to it like this was just when I started watching it when I was a kid. So this is my doctor or this is like I was going through this thing with my wife, and this is why sort of watching it this point. This is why I love it. And like for me, like I very much clue into the most recent era was Stephen appear capacity and see if mother because it was the era that was running when I was starting to transition, and the show is so much about rebirth and about regenerating and becoming a new version of yourself that like that connected with me and the fact that at the end of all that the doctor became a woman is like, oh my God, the doctor regenerated along and transitioned with me get from it. So that's one week experience phantom, and you just want like when you find out people are new. It you get excited like, oh my God, you get to experience. The thing that I love here with me and it may be a little creepy at times, but it's also fun to see their joy of a thing that used to feel that same joy for at that level and like you can experience it. The other kind of fandom is like, I love this thing. I love it so much that it's mine and nobody else can love them, which as I do and I'm going to push people out of it because I don't want them to take when I love the from me and I get, I guess they have it all for myself. And that's where I think it's like toxic and like angry and yeah, like you go on Twitter tweet at an actress because she was in it and she just looked like you think she should look like people that are in it and you have some sort of hatred for her even though she did nothing to you and all she did was get her dream fucking job. Those are both great examples that we've kind of hinted at the Star Wars. One where actress, Kelly, Marie. TRAN was an Asian woman in a Star Wars movie, and then basically got hounded off Instagram for it. And then there have been all kinds of exciting things going on with Dr Who to when I feel bad for those angry fans about who are just mad about that chain. They shouldn't be doing what they're doing, but also like I almost feel bad for them because like these are massive properties with all kinds of amazing talent behind them, and their anger is not going to change it. It's so destructive that they feel that way in so many ways because they're not going to get what they're asking for and they are asking for it for such weird. Sad reasons has nothing to do with any show or any movie like a whatever you're freaking out at someone online about it's the freakout. That's the part that that's on you. It does not. It's outside of the thing you're fan of at that point you've left? Yeah, all of that behind and you're now just expressing your own pathology in a gross weird way. It's fascinating to watch people unravel about stuff and make it about the fiction, like Honey, that's you. That's true. And I think that we, we almost see a microcosm of like what's going wrong with our society right now in the way that plays out like to take Star Wars. For example, because that's the most recent major example of it. Like that movie came out last December and. And a portion really loved it. A portion really hated it, and a portion fell indifferent about it. But then people go on the internet and they start talking about it, and then they find these forums where someone is like this is this is a travesty has been used against us and then like someone who might have been like, I didn't really like it. Mice are reading that. And next thing you know, this harketting radicalized in their anger for it because they're in these small pocket communities that are just feeding off because there's like furious anger for it as a someone who like left it going as things about it didn't like it. It might not have worked suddenly like are are like repeating the talking points that these like forums in these videos have created that now it went from, I didn't like this thing to the makers of this thing are out to get us and they hate us and they're trying to destroy us. And I think the same thing as what happened over the course of the last decade with the internet, especially with these like sub forums on Reddit or fourteen and stuff like that, where it went from being like on not getting dates with women that I, that I would like to get to women as a whole. Conspiring against men like me and there's like this whole sphere, and that's how you get like this weird angry in cell movements. And I think it's to me, it's fascinating because it's just the exact same level of rage and the exact same symptoms. It just like this tempest not pod is is a small version. You can see how these groups formed, and I don't know how to fix it is the problem that's all dead on. And also I, if there is a fix we can solve everything right in the Star Wars case where a lot of people saw Kelly, Maria TRAN harassed offline, and they were like, I'm very upset about it. And then it started a fan art campaign. It was hashtag fan art for rose, and people were just posting wonderful illustrations and drawings and things. And it was one of these sort of divides where one side was just clearly much more fun to be a part of. And especially when we're talking about entertainment, you probably want to be in the fun camp and maybe that is a way forward through these things. To like, it's usually not the person with a ticking time bomb tumor in their head. That's like, man, I mad about this current. Like once you, if something forces you to get your shit into perspective, then you're not gonna spend a lot of time being mad about that kind of stuff online, you'd hope? Yeah. I think what Dr Who there was definitely like a pocket of the community that was a very negative backlash to them casting a woman to play the doctor. But I think most of the fans of the show that I've experienced like, no, this is a show about change in about accepting different things. And so I think for the most part, it's been acceptance to it. But even I like today, I left a Facebook group that I was in that was like a phantom group for the new doctor because too many people in that group riposting screen shots of negative things. Others were saying, and then spending like a whole thread being like, screw this guy, right? He's a jerk and I'm like, I don't want to spend my time focusing on the negative things being said about the thing that I like. I just want to enjoy this thing and it's like you said, I want to be in the group. That's the more fun group I want to be in the group. That's like, I just love this thing, and I want to hear about how much you. It and I don't want negative space. I just wanted to have positive fun things. And having said that, I am more than willing to talk about aspects of things that I love that are problematic or things that that like disturbed me in ways like bother me. But like you can do that without being like, this thing is the devil on his get me or ruin. The thing that I love, I love what you say about doctor who being about a change and things have all been because also I feel like most art has some kind of positive message at the core of it, and it's always astounding EMMY when these fans are so mad and negative about a thing. Yeah, they're like, because I fully understand what this is about. If you, if you understand Star Wars, you probably be nicer to downtrodden people. You know, like if you, if you ever enjoyed Jim Benson product and your entire life, how are you mad that anyone thinks pertinent near gay and sincere way our you mad that like I always hated Berkner near gay jokes. They always felt really hacky and kind of homophobic to me. But now like that. One writer for the show was like, I actually wrote them as. Gay couple. And then like I've had like friends of mine who are queer who have said like, I actually thought they were gay the whole time, and it made me feel good that this thing that I was watching made me feel this way. And these people have come out and said that have now been harassed on Twitter for saying that these two characters being gay meant something to them, and it's like it takes nothing away from your experience with the Muppets to accept these carriers might be to an audience member like it doesn't mean that it has to be canon at their gay just means that these people got something out of it that you didn't get, and that's okay.
