"In Hong Kong more than seven thousand mostly young people have been arrested since the eruption of pro-democracy unrest last June but no action by the police as caused as much shock this weekend. Roundup of territories most venerated campaigners the fifteen arrests included lawmakers and lawyers accused of involvement. In last year's mass protest among them was newspaper owner. Jimmy Lai was arrested at his home in driven away in a police. Van Another was Martin Lee Barrister. And former legislator often called the father of the pro-democracy movement bluffly speaking after his release on bail. Eighty one year old said he was proud to have walked wrote. A democracy with the territory's young people the detainment of some of the figureheads of the protest movement might be intended as a deterrent against future mass gatherings but given the fervor of last year's demonstrations it could have the opposite effect the protests that broke out in early summer last year carried on throughout the summer and the autumn and then peaked in November and with some violent clashes between protesters and the police. Caroline quarter is our deputy Asia News editor in November. There was a local election and the protesters deliberately. Calm things down before that. The last big march was on January. First switches just before the coin virus came into Hong Kong from the mainland and we people say faithful about the disease. It's impossible for many peoples. Come out in the streets in protest but the sentiment and the anger is still there and so now the virus seems to be largely under control in Hong Kong people are wondering what form the protests might take next. Why have these reasons arrests calls so much? More concerned than all of the prior ones and amongst the fifteen people arrested on Saturday. Some of them are the founders of the Hong Kong Democracy Movement that moderate some of them are very old that generally peaceful and some of these people spend their lives as part of the political legal establishment. Aaron uncle so one of the people arrested is Martin Lee. And he's generally regarded be the founding father of Hong Kong democracy. He's eighty one years old. He's a barrister. He was a legislator and before the handover he helped to draft the Basic Law. Which is the normal gone? The other probably most famous figure who was arrested is Jimmy Lai. He's a very wealthy man. He runs a media company the publishers newspaper. That's very critical of the Communist Party. So there are arrests probably seems more shocking than thousands of young people who were arrested last summer. And there's also such long lag between the events that they're being charged for which were in August and October and are arrests now. I think it took people by surprise. And what is it that these fifteen or accused of the charges against most of them relate to protest that took place in August? I'm October last year. During the large scale protests movement so under Hong Kong's Public Order Ordinance. Even small gatherings without approval from the police can be deemed to be unauthorized. Which means the people who attend them risk being arrested? The maximum penalty is three years in prison. But most people can expect to go for the fine I understand. And what do you think the motivation is for targeting? These high profile people amongst the fifteen. There's different sorts of people who are said there's Legislators WITH BARRISTERS. Somebody younger activists. Jim Eli is this media tycoon. He and Martin Lee particularly well known to have traveled to America to speak to Western politicians. And ask them to pay attention to what's happening in Hong Kong and these arrests seem designed to warn people in Hong Kong that nobody is above the law that's been said by policemen in Hong Kong and the sentiments echoed by the Chinese Foreign Ministry Song going through vouchers or who do Boon Linda Yufa Lucia. You've out some people in Hong Kong believed that the Chinese government ordered these arrests and that could mean mentors signals Western governments that China will not tolerate any interference into its politics. But but why make these arrests now if if this has been the feeling from the store as the police say it's just taking a long time to gather this evidence and it's possible that the corona virus epidemic here might of slate. That down is even possible that the police are now worried about the protests flaring. Backup and this could be seen as a deterrent to that and so there have been other signs this week of pressures on the Pro Democracy Movement senior Communist Party officials increased cools the Hong Kong government to pass the National Security Law and Article. Twenty three which is designed to counter the threat from radical violence and foreign interference and pro independence forces and in the same week. Beijing seems of lost patients with the behavior of opposition politicians in the city's Legislative Council. Who since October have been making it impossible to pass any legislation and there's a few important bills that are stuck with legendary and until that becomes unblocked. It's going to be impossible for the government to pass a bill. Such as article touchy three and so these are arrests that that perhaps authorities might have been reluctant to do win the The protests were really burning late last year earlier this year. Do you think this is a sign that in the Nineteen Era Beijing well and Hong Kong authorities themselves are willing to put more pressure on. I think it's impossible to know exactly why these instructions came from but it seems unlikely that police would have done this without some assessment of the political implications Beijing stance towards Hong. Kong's does seem to be hardening and the world being distracted by the corona virus. Could help but in terms of Hong Kong Politics. I think. Crackdown on the opposition. Movement has been on the cards for a long time and so as Hong Kong passes through the worst of the pandemic and and life gets more like it used to be with. What prospects do you do you see for? Even more unrest? Truly these arrests this week we'll have only inflamed tensions yes. I think that's right everything that the police are. The mainland government to infuriates people and makes them want to come back out into the streets at the moment as particular laws in place to do with social distancing corona virus that makes it even more difficult for groups to assemble. These arrests have not beheaded the movement. You know these people want the leaders of the movement so I think it's possible that protests will start up again. I think it might be difficult to have the huge crowds that we saw last year. I think the police are probably better trained. So those large-scale unrest will become riskier. The Hong Kong police here is warned of the threat of homegrown terrorism. So they've uncovered bomb threats which is another direction. The party tests could be going in more. Moderate Democrats are looking towards Legislative Council elections which chew in September which is the chance for Hong Kong people to exercise their democratic rights. And we know that any suppression by the main government triggers more and more people to come out and vote but the Democrats are very worried that the governments will find ways to disqualify candidates that they like and on top of that. There's always a risk that the government will find an excuse to council postponed. The elections completely either corona virus or protests or some other unknown in terms of upcoming protests. Some Democrats are looking forward to the anniversary of the beginning of the protest movement last year. In June and July first annual pro democracy movement takes place and I think arrests like this interference from the Communist Party or the forcing through unpopular legislation. Could all inspire greater numbers of people to come out? Then I think relatively calm spring I think Hong Kong can expect a very tense summer. Thank you very much for joining us..

That's wonderful Bobby Moynihan. I remember Dhabi. Moynahan is one of those amazing actors. He's he was on Saturday.

Oh this is who we are because you have all these intentions on the page but then you when you shoot it you have to go with what's find went out of the actor and then you discover who you are something.

"Hey welcome to in the thick I move your. I'm Jim Eli thing and this is. It sound off Friday itt achieve t sound up. We're at the end of another eventful week. Jamila eventful it's some always happening. I know and so. Let's get to it with our first topic. This is historic. It's the latest with the impeachment trial. Here's where we are at on on Wednesday House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. She transmitted the articles of impeachment to the Senate. She appointed seven house impeachment managers to the trial then on Thursday trial proceedings officially started with chief justice. John Roberts sworn into precise over the trial as well as one hundred senators sworn in as the jurors and I watched all the pomp and circumstance in the Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell said the trial will and I quote commenced in Ernest again. I'm not even GonNa do Mitch McConnell impersonation so basically we will be hearing opening statements from the house managers then the impeachment trial of Donald J trump has begun but then left harness. Meanwhile meanwhile at the other part of this story Orey left Parnassus whose an associate of none other than Rudy Giuliani. Who is trump's personal lawyer? These literally been on this press store giving giving interviews about trump's knowledge of the Ukraine scandal so on Wednesday night he went on Rachel maddow show basically said that Giuliani ordered him and other associate eager to help investigate the Biden's and withhold aid from Ukraine and left parties said that Donald Trump knew about it. Like I said the aid itself was something that I think. The president decided to do. What's called but it was? I think a reaction to that there was no Announcement Smith being made after so many attempts so many promises so holding the aid was the president's own sort of innovation to to to add to the leverage to the pressure that people like you or the vice president and Mr Giuliani and everybody else involved in this effort is put on the Ukrainian government. When you say that Mr Bolton you may have things to say about this did Mr Boulton know that Vice President pence was supposed to secure that agreement from Zelenskaja announced these investigations? I don't know exactly what Mr Bell. Nobody I know Mr Bolton was definitely involved in the loop because of the firing of marie-yvonne enrich also his interactions with Rudy Guiliani They started butting heads And he was agreeing. It was I mean from Venezuela to Ukraine moten than agree with Giuliani on the on the way of dealing with it so there was tension. There there was there was definitely you believe he knows what the administration was pressuring Ukraine to do Bolton percent. ooh Can I say using Mr before. Doesn't make make this any more. You know like less salacious like Mr Bolton but anyway Jamila I heard woo. Yeah once again I I will circle back to the strategy. That my homegirl. Alleged homegirl Nancy Pelosi is said to the been playing with. which is this is why she waited? Did this is why she waited to introduce the articles impeachment to the Senate because her estimation was that more evidence come to light and sure enough. This is that evidence in your new home. Girl had a plan. I think when you look at sort of how this is shaping up in terms of the impeachment managers. I think one thing that you're seeing this really different from other impeachments we may obscene in our lifetimes. Allah Bill Clinton Back in the ninety s when he was impeached. The managers in charge of his impeachment were basically thirteen. White men men Yeah and now this time around. I think Nancy Pelosi. You know went to great lengths to make sure that this was sort of diverse panel so even though they're all lawyers lawyers pretty much except for Val demings who was the police chief in Orlando. You've got the Jeffries from New York. You've got Sylvia Garcia from Texas. Zoe lofgren California. You know like she's Lofgren is sort of seen three impeachment trials at this point so this is big. This is really big a couple couple of things about this yes. We're going to be covering this next week. The trial's going to happen what I'm fascinated about. Jamila this is a journalist is like no electronic devices so in the age of digital media and social media. We're just GONNA have to wait. It's like you know the way I look at this is It's like when they choose a pope. You know they close the doors and the bishops are choosing a pope. That is my Catholic upbringing. Like it's even though we're going to see it on television or on C. Span and I'm totally doing C. Span. I don't want any commentary I want all like as if I'm there c-span rocks. No one's going to be able to tweet about it. No one. We're going to be like. Hey I'm here you know so no phones and I just wanted to share it another thing about this sort of like. We're doing like impeachment trial pre-game our good friend Ed O'Keefe of CBS News. Who has been on in taking the past? He's tweeted out discard that capitol. Police give out from time to time to senators. And it's basically the card that was given to senators ahead of the trial on tips to avoid reporters and I just want to read the card for you guys and it says phrases to use when seeking assistance. So here's some the phrases. Please move out of my way. You're preventing me from doing my job. Please excuse me I am trying to get to the Senate floor. Please excuse me. I'm trying to get to a hearing. Please do not touch me. Don't touch me so I think it's going to be a media shit show. Yeah but I will say not having electronic devices during the proceedings will at least give it sort of this air a formality. I do also think this is one of the moments where where the history of the United States a political. You know I feel it. I feel like what happened. In seventeen seventy six to now the constitution in an you know and then in seventeen eighty nine like I feel like there's a connection here and we know the history of America's really fucked up but there is sort of like American American fabric that I'm fascinated by. Yeah you know I think it just speaks to You know we're GonNa see if our democracy and the you know rules that four founders put in place as problematic as those four founders. Were we'll see if we can as a country sort of live those ideals out despite our partisan differences right trump purpose by far the most polarizing elected official. I think we've had in generations and I think that we're GONNA see we're going to see if you know our constitution is really we about it. You know about that life I love it. So let's move on to our second topic which which is gonNA be about the democratic debate that was held in Iowa on Tuesday honestly. The debate didn't go deep into the issues that matter to communities of color so Obviously since it's been a few days since the debate happened we're now seeing how mainstream media has been reacting to it and it's clear the focus this has been on the drama between Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. This is about whether in a private meeting in twenty eighteen between the to Sanders said to warn that a woman could not be President Sanders of course denies this. Warren says that he said it and because no one else was in in that meeting we cannot really know but some people feel that the framing of the questions by CNN. In this week's debate were siding with Warren and it was CNN who reported the story in the first place. Let's take a listen to that moment. Senator Sanders I want to be clear. Here you're saying that you never told. Hold Senator Warren that a woman could not win the election. GO TO SCREW Senator Warren. What did you think when Senator Sanders Sanders told you? A woman could not win the election. I disagreed so this is big. These two factions are sort of warring at each other also. What happened on Thursday? There's Day with the mics. Being Open told me a liar on their phones I think you called me a liar on natural. Let's not do it right now. One of the discussion. Have you called meal you told me. Let's go by just want to say hybrid. Good that's also part of this so the first thing that strikes me about this is just like this sounds like cable. TV because it is You know I think it's always really disheartening. Whenever every we see progressive wing of the Democratic Party warring with each other because that only benefits donald trump? But these are legitimate critiques. I think level on both sides and I think that what you're seeing is sort of a fight for the heart of the Progressive Wing of the Democratic Party playing out in real time. Yeah absolutely and it's so funny because it's really suddenly nasty out there and let me just give you one example Jamila so on Thursday the Warren campaign gene releases a hundred endorsements by it says hundreds endorsements by Latinos Latinos and Latin x right so they used all the terms which I was like. Oh that's interesting. So everyone's identifying the way they want to be identified they have all these grassroots activists a lot of people that I know one of our former in the thickest Jonathan Jay's green who is one of the founding members of undocumented. Keep runs the Latino outreach for Warren so it was a big deal. I think you know an eye. Why is founder of Latino rebels worker food media? We cover politics through this lens. I know a lot of the names I'm like we got a publicist. We share this right. Yeah and we. We share it as a new story and on instagram. Unless you know rebels last night we're getting trolled about Elizabeth Warren. From fellow progresses. The fact is if you look at the coverage it's like you know we've done coverage on Bernie Sanders and what he's you know. He's leading with young Latino voters and even when. I think something is really wrong wrong here. I think people need to sit back. I think they both gave good answers. I think the Mike thing was CNN. Jesus milking the Damn Story. I just thought it was completely convenient. Union that they did all this this week and I think it sucks. I really think it sucks because I think it's you have to really good strong candidates. And they're bigger issues easier. But I just want to make a general comment about this and this is probably where I'll never work at CNN. I think they completely fumble this debate and actually went on democracy now on Wednesday morning to talk about it. Could you talk first about this healthcare exchange that we just played and also your take on what you thought the highlights of what was missing last last night's debate first of all the biggest takeaway from this healthcare debate. Even though it's been repeated so many times is the fact that during the war talk no one was talking about costs. Like how are you going to pay for all this war. And how are you going to pay for anything. That's going to happen in Iran but when we got to healthcare the questions were framed about like what. What are we going to do? How are we? You'RE GONNA pay for all this and I think that is just such a disservice to the American people in the American electorate because in the end let's be real. I mean if there's anything that has a lot of universality or commonality about what is happening in the United States it's the cost of healthcare. Also getting back to the CNN private meeting of discussion about sexism politics which is a completely real problem and if we want to talk about.

"Time Britain handed Hong Kong back to China. Jimmy Lai was running a new kind of company a kind of company that made this dangerous moment for him a few years earlier he'd been inspired by the Tiananmen Square protesters who wanted among other things more freedom of speech and less censorship in mainland China and after the Chinese government declared martial law <hes> and killed hundreds of the protesters. Jimmy started a pro democracy media company in Hong Kong. I said look you know the best way to use my money is to go into the media because to deliver inflammation is actually actually delivery Liberty Liberty them yeah so let's go into the freedom business when the handover happened in nineteen ninety-seven Jimmy was running a weekly magazine and a major daily newspaper in Hong Kong both of them. We're openly critical of the Chinese government well. Were you worried. You're going to get arrested the next day. No that never happened. Of course it didn't happen but you didn't know the future now the future but I just I just live my life day by day. Okay what was the daylight so the first day when Hong Kong is no longer a British colony and is now a special Administrative Region People's Republic of China. What was that day like nothing change? Nothing changed very. Rolito change. I'm sure people people were apprehensive about what's going to happen. Yeah Okay but nothing change and did you think still you know I feel like the conventional wisdom in the West at least at that time was well. China is getting richer and we know that when countries get richer they become more democratic and get civil freedoms and so that's what's going to happen to China. That's what we thought is that the deaths the consensus thinking. Is that what you thought at the that's what we fought but that cost in happen open China has not allowed more freedom of speech publications can still be shut down for criticizing the government and yet China has gotten richer it started to develop its own financial center in Shanghai foreign money can now flow into China without going through Hong Kong so the Chinese Communist Party doesn't need Hong Kong as much as it used to this has led to more and more tension between people in Hong Kong and the Chinese Communist Party the Chinese government in two thousand fourteen. There was a fight over how to choose the government official who runs runs Hong Kong and a million people in Hong Kong took to the streets to protest just last month the government official who runs Hong Kong wanted to pass a new law that would allow people in Hong Kong to be extradited to China to stand trial the people in Hong Kong said we don't trust your mainland courts. Two million people protested in the streets including by the way Jimmy Lai who is now in his seventies. What was it like? What was it like walking? That day was excited when you see so many people you know is fighting fighting for a moral issue. We don't have guns. We don't have tans. We don't have anything the only thing we have. The Chinese government is the moral authority we have the moral courage we have the moral authority already encourage you yes a few weeks later on July first on the anniversary of Hong Kong's return to Chinese rule protesters broke into the Hong Kong legislature building smashed glass walls and spray painted graffiti Chinese leaders see these protesters and Jim Eli for that matter as agents for foreign influence as basically latter-day colonialists his house has been firebombed and there was an assassination plot against him. I still thinking about this because if I I I I let the fear frighten me. I cannot go on you know because we've what have tingle up. I have to sustain it. I will be the last to leave that is like a captain who who can not jump the ship. I mean you're you're rich. You could leave if you wanted yeah. If I'm if I'm rich but an asshole what what my kids goofing about me being reach you can be very poor. Go on say more because if you only have money you lost the meaning loss of dignity you lost everything as a human being what else you have in the end. The big risks that Jimmy Lai and the Hong Kong protesters posed to Beijing is not really about Hong Kong itself if that people on the mainland could look at Hong Kong and say hey we're gonNA break some windows to we're going to start protesting here. If that happens Beijing could send in the tanks in Hong Kong and shut down the protest once and for all you email us. We're at planet money at N._P._R..

"The best of Armstrong and Getty. On the whole college admissions scandal, you guys do the Dr gray story, which I love can't remember might have popped up. So bunch of celebrities were outed over the weekend for amounts that they've donated to colleges and then their kids got it. That's the old fashioned way. Right. You donate a ton of money and surprise surprise your kids smart enough to get into what procedures university. Right. Just a coincidence. Well, you've got a special relationship with the university. In your jailed will ring the needed diversity in tussle haired, rich children, Dr Drey use a rapper and producer and magnetic early physician and worth about a billion dollars mostly from his headphone company. Right. He bragged over the weekend that he got his daughter into USC all on her own and put out a tweet to him and his daughter and stuff because she went to USC my daughter got an all on her own. Then there was some clapback as happens in the modern social media world. In pointing out that he Dr dre whose real name is Andre young donated seventy million dollars to USC along with this other guy. Jim Eli LeVine evolving evolving ivine, anyway, but magnates seventy million dollar donation to their music program. You donate seventy million dollars to a college. Your kid will probably get him. That's I think that's the way. It's always work. If only I'd known, but at least that way, if I'm going to school, and my friend has their name on one of the buildings. I know you're kind of a Dullard. He did it the legal way. But I've always assumed that that happened. I mean, I don't quite get being so in love with Harvard or Yale whatever Meryl Streep donating two million dollars sheet Meryl Streep went to Harvard. Harvard has the biggest primary dominant, right? She donated two million dollars in her kids. Couple of her kids got into Harvard. These universities that have more money than they could ever use. No, no matter what the circumstance. You're you just so in love with that that learning institution that you feel like they need more money or are you just trying to get your kid in there? Yeah. Just getting your kid in there. Aren't you can't possibly think? Harvard needs to more million dollars. I what is what is Harvard's private endowment? Can you go out? It's in the hundreds of million. In fact, it might be over a billion. I hate to go crazy. I'm trying to rack. My faulty faulty memory, the real number. I'm sure we'll be impressive enough. But I've ruined it by saying billion thirty nine billion thirty nine billion. Sorry. I thought a billion was insane. And tried to retract it. Yeah. Cantor FitzGerald billionaire Howard Lut Nick made a twenty million dollars donation to Stanford which also has more money than God. Twenty six point five billion for Stanford yet, the these these institutions have more money than they know what to do with right money is not a thing you're donating money to get your kid in. Which again, I've always assumed it worked that way. I don't like that it works that way. But it's always been that way. And I don't feel like I have any way to stop it. So that's just the way it is. That's one of the reasons I'm not that into the whole procedure university or impressed with your degree or whatever. Yeah. What is Harvard need all that money for and still raking in many millions more in case of an alien invasion. And they don't have students for thirty five years. They can still pay their electric Bill. I don't I don't get it. So Meryl Streep got to say her kids are going. Yes, she got into Harvard. Oh, that's fantastic. Meryl. What is that? That's weird on both ends. Yeah. I know it's weird for you that you're taking pride in the fact that you're wealthy enough to donate money to the universities. Your kid can get and then other people act like you're a good parent becau- because you have smarter kids or I don't know what they I don't know what it is on any level. You've got good bloodlines like a racehorse. Here's a question for you. Do this the prestigious universities pretend that your kid got in on their own? We thank you for that gift MRs Streep, and listen, this is so funny little Merrill junior. It was well-qualified we'd have been happy to admit her either way. But thank you so much is that part of the. Deal part of the service. You get I don't know. I get the feeling that you don't bring it up when you're at whenever you bring up what your kids going to college. If you're Meryl Streep or whoever you are. I doubt you ever also mentioned all the money. You donate it to. I just I'm wondering because Dr dre is a very bright guy. Andrea very bright guy wouldn't be shocking is Donald very bright too. And she got in on our own. We this is not desposited. This is not jackets evidence. It's not proof that something funky was going on. I don't wanna be unfair to the young lady. But I just wonder if that's part of the deal now. Of course, you'll tell them that they would have gotten in anyway. Yes, sir. I know I know. To be fair here. Jared Kushner's dad, Charles Kushner, donated two and a half million dollars to Harvard, which we just learned has how many billion three thirty nine point two almost forty. If the stock market takes up, they'll hit forty Jared. Kushner's dad, gave Harvard two and a half million dollars in Jordan, his brother, graduated from Harvard that I you know. I don't know. There is Maya my daughter. My oldest daughter. Kate's university keeps calling. I'm not giving them dime. Number one. Oh, I don't get that donate educate. My daughter, I desire call I got bills for pretty frequently. Don't get that donating money near university. In some cases, they got more money than what to do with another cases. I gave you I think more than I probably should have to get what I got anyway. So what does it for? Yeah. Go ahead. Do it. If you want. I just have never understood it. And these cases are all I'm supposed to believe that had nothing to do with it. Jared Kushner's dad, give a million dollars to Harvard, which is why Jared one Tarver I enjoyed the heck out of my college experience. Absolutely loves you on every single played for. But you know, for what it's worth I went to the university of Illinois hitter. Bannon champagne and. And they fallen on really hard times lately. Because Michael Madigan, the mobsters in the state capital have ruined Illinois finances. It is it is like secretary at twenty four lengths ahead in the race to be the first bankrupt state. And so it's really hit the universities. And when I took little d my youngest daughter to check out you of I. It was it was not impressive. Just the the people the tour of the it was just not up to any of the other schools. We went to this is my favorite because of budget problems. This is my new favorite thing. Googling the endowments of colleges so university in the middle of thought, I'm sorry. I thought it tied in with the money. It's got nothing to do with me. I mean, why would I will give them a few grand or whatever to bail them out? It's got nothing to do with me your states mismanage find some money yourself. But sorry, what's their endowment? Are they well endowed like certain their graduates? Oh my God. Hilarious. Thank you, Mike three point four billion. So how they're doing the classic thing. Then of you're just trying to make things crappy hoping to squeeze more money out of taxpayers. I don't know probably. I don't think I've plenty of money there. So now, okay. So this book is called the price of admission was written in two thousand six it's got all this information. And it's getting a lot of attention recently. Because of you know, what college any says in a book colleges are eager to admit children of rich people and celebrities, even if a donation is not immediately forthcoming the presence of celebrities at parents weekends and similar events generates favorable buzz, and publicity that can translate into more giving from impressed parents in alums. So just being famous alone is worth something had in the famous kid or parents at your university say that's that's worth some money to them. They think or in many cases, like Lorne Michaels. He donated six figures to three universities after his kids went there. But in many cases, according to this book, there's an assumption that you'll be donating a lot of money. I don't know if you have that conversation out loud. You know, I'm I'm thinking about it. I think perhaps I've been hasty in my judgments in a little tight on my wallet. I think I will endow Uvira if they're willing to build and label. The Joe Getty institute for making jokes about the news. Young people can be trained in that gentle. Art, the art that I have embraced the other night of spent my life engaged in and we'll identify promising youth from from downtrodden sectors of our country and train them in making jokes about the news. The Gygi Magen Joe Getty institute making jokes about news. Jam. Right. Did I go there for the ribbon cutting, and I'd make a speech, and and my name would be up on the side of it until I got outbid twenty years down the road, and they'd cut a mumble some apologies, and you know, it sucks. Dr dre daughter is smart and worked really hard and everything like that. But I just I just don't think he can brag about your kid getting.

She donated two million dollars in her kids. Couple of her kids got into Harvard. These universities that have more. Didn't they could ever use? No, no matter what the circumstance. You just. So in love with that that loosening institution. Yeah. You feel like they need more money. Or are you just trying to get your kid in there? Yeah. Just getting your kid in there, aren't you? You can't possibly think. Harvard needs to more million dollars. I what is there? What is Harvard's private endowment? Can you? It's in the hundreds of millions. In fact, it might be over a billion. I go crazy. I'm trying to rack. My faulty faulty memory, the real number. I'm sure we'll be impressive enough. But I've ruined it by saying a billion thirty nine billion thirty nine billion in Saint zone. Sorry. I thought billion was insane. And tried to retract it. Yeah. Cantor FitzGerald billionaire Howard Luttwak Nick made a twenty million dollar donation to Stanford which also has more money than God. Twenty six point five billion for Stanford. Yeah. The these these institutions have more money than they know what to do with right money is not a thing you're donating money to get your kid in which again, you know, I've always assumed it worked that way. I don't like that it works that way. But it's always been the way. And I don't feel like I have any way to stop it. So that's just the way it is. That's one of the reasons I'm not that into the whole prestigious university or impressed with your degree or whatever. Yeah. What does Harvard need all that money for and still raking in many millions more in case of an alien invasion. And they don't have students for thirty five years. They can still pay their electric Bill. I don't I don't get it. So Meryl Streep got to say her kids are going. Yeah. She got into Harvard. Oh, that's fantastic Merrill. What is that? That's weird on both ends. Yeah. I know it's weird for you that you're taking pride in the fact that you're wealthy enough to donate money to the universities. Your kid can get and then other people act like you're a good parent becau- because you have smarter kids or I don't know what they I don't know what it is on any level. You've got good bloodlines like a racehorse. Here's a question for you. Do this the prestigious universities pretend that your kid got in on their own? We thank you for that gift MRs Streep, and listen, this is so funny little Merrill junior. It was well-qualified we'd have been happy to admit her either way. But thank you so much is that part of the. Deal part of the service. You get I don't know. I get the feeling that you don't bring it up when you're at. Whenever you bring up where you're going to college. If you're Meryl Streep or whoever you are. I doubt you ever also mentioned all the money you donated to the I just I'm wondering because Dr dre as a very bright guy mean Andrea, very bright guy wouldn't be shocking. Donald very bright too. And she got in on our own. We this is not desposited. This is not jackets evidence. It's not proof that something funky was going on. I don't wanna be unfair to the young lady. But I just wonder if that's part of the deal. Of course, you'll tell them that they would have gotten in any way. Yes, sir. I know I know. To be fair here. Jared Kushner's dad, Charles Kushner,.

I supply all listen great to be back home back in my sister's house right next door to the house. I grew up in west Islip. The flight that the vino when I roll on Monday morning at seven AM was mysteriously delayed for two hours. Did Matama had to run for a train Jamaica station with twenty seconds to spare on the train was a local, and I made all the stops that familiar sound of the garbled conductor's voice everybody from Long Island noses sound this battle on training making stops at Rockville centre, Baldwin, freeport, Barrett, Bellemare, Wando, Seaford, massive people, massive people part Amital co pay when in her hand, battle on stay on for the train. Nobody goes to spin. It didn't even matter that the first thing I saw dragging my luggage out of the train was the site of the very catchy sand is to work at. I was flooding several years ago, sunset taxi, and there was a sign that said drivers wanted. Hey, I'm not cost six to anymore. Many. Nobody told you almost shoeshine figures even walking into rose lease house in hearing twelve yorkies Yiping at me gypsy Alfie raphia coochie botchy Bella Tina. Rocco will be Chico Cisco, Don Juan. Actually, those are the names are the dog. She had lived on a couch twenty six years ago before it was able to get my apartment in Manhattan. I couldn't tell you the names of the twelve dogs now, but they're kind of similar to the all those names used to have this team to Chico to go beat the two gypsy three, three. It's insane, but look new dogs, but just as yappy and you can forget about peach buddy demand this week, not when rose Elise, Stockton refrigerator with everything. I love from Jim Eli's. So Persad cheese, salami olives. And when I come in, she's frying chicken cutlets and is already ravioli. She made earlier that day ravioli of meat, bowl sausage, Brazil. Forget about it. She could offend the whole flight. JetBlue flight one, twenty four. But my me I said, well, what are you catering? My arrival, but that's her. That's my sister. Then there's Jack. He's got the jets, the Yankee game on and every fucking room and the kitchen. He's got them upstairs playing in the big screen. How. How downstairs on the big screen, and he's got the radio on by the pool, got Sean Hannity screaming by the pool and the radio. He comes up the steps. How's the flame? Did you see fucking Gary Sanchez that pass ball, how Iran, like my ads for the bull that gotta white. Meanwhile, the guy scores from second base Kimmy fuck and break. Like nothing's changed. We always start talking about the Yankees, whether they go to bed and we're still nervous even phenomenal. But you know, the sounds of home the best. And so I'm laying down this show for you in a room. I used to sleep them. I lived here, you know. You know, little contraption got no, no Vasquez, no studio. Some using the equipment, Mike me to do this stuff. So these things remotely and let's hold. No, not to the door. And if you hear a cacophony of dogs barking in the kitchen kitchen is like beautiful Omaha, wild kingdom meets naked in the fridge. It's crazy in that. So also getting ready for tonight's big. Get together. Like I said, if of Brooklyn on higby lane in west Islip pig, you know, straight shot from the house to get the foul pass mile. High school gonna pass my ex wife, Jennifer sows, and he on the memories thought flooding me up man. You know me, I can cry. Trust me. You've heard me the other day. I spilled seduce. Okay. But even on the plane on the plane, he, I always say, when I fly on planes, I missed any. 'cause I on almost heaven like some close the people that are dead. I mean some on the plane and listen to Sirius sounds of the nineteen seventies, and every song I play has a meaning. There's always a who want when where, why attached to every so many different journey comes on with any way you want foam right away. I'm sock back into nineteen Seventy-nine making Belinda Buren. Her bedroom parents around when there was so cute. Cute Irish grow, blond hair, blue eyes, and I waited weeks. The finally do the deed, right? You know, even if their problem was and still hadn't gotten, finally, deed comes, wouldn't you know? It just isn't finished before you get to the culling times which you really should do. You're that young here. Venos- Hawkin hold outs. Side the outside the house because you know it was a city night. Is that the transam Piran you know, and Marvin jealous come outside. So the boys beckoned I left Linda and she just have to stay home angry. And every time I look back a review, mirror Christ is so many girls teased there is. It makes me crazy what a happy on student give me wrong. I'm friends with all my exes but see my review, Dan, boom, I will survive comes on and I could see me with the tears this time because that was a song that was playing when Laurie Manatt go broke up with me on account of my roving. I could take very jealous. Staying alive that reminded me of leaving high school dorm lunch to go by McDonald's and Scotty, marriages car. Talk about freedom, leaving high school for an hour and your buddies car come. How cool were you at that point play that funky music reminds me of gonna Bachar high spoke to play varsity basketball game and seeing the guard Stanley Wilcox black kid dunking with two hands during layup trills, but didn't have to say black kid, not me white kids at five, eleven conduct with two in some way of jobs, but trial it up down deer Park Avenue, bump into my Sharana made the flight go fast. We got there fast. Anyhow, all the guys tonight. Tony Bosch. Frankie Blair Mike's Storrow Freddie Marino's coming from upstate New York. Those guys. Listen, I'm sure you've got friends like those guys to those guys make me feel like I never ever left, and sometimes I wish I had, but let me get the sponsor signal skincare, I swear. I su- I saw a couple of friends last night with a guy, and they accused me of doing something. I said, what bowl talk this year? I said, no. Haven't used both talks from four years. I get talks once in a while my left leg. 'cause I had those palsy two thousand six. The left island work like she used to couple of squirts at gyms above my eyebrow. It works for for for a few months, but I said, no, gross. I'm not both toxin. I'm using signals. Skincare would stab. What do you do?

I think it's time we address it. If we played with it, we gotta get deep about how to fix this. Couple of months ago, I kept hearing very late at night about three or four o'clock in morning when everybody's asleep, but crazy people like me, awake and thinking, I can hear faint, sounds of something scratching on the exterior concrete wall. My house like little sounds gnashing scratching gnawing those are three words that are never used for anything. Good, right. Gnashing owing scratching as an, it's probably a raccoon. Possibly. Maybe what if it's a rat. You'll have to be dirty house racket at all because Derry. But how long do you carry on before that rat keeps working on that little space. He made in the wall the night before outside. You know, how long do you got a week? Go by two weeks sometimes disappears for a little bit, but then there's then night when you hear it again and now it's a little bit closer. Okay. Now it's getting to the point where you're ready to go to sleep to start again. And it says, if the noise of the concrete is like an interest so away from what you sleep, it gets horrifying the horrible right. As if this guy's gonna live with you. So she, she was hopping. You look at the wall and you put something out that maybe some borax rat-trap more concrete, whatever Sunday, two cards hurt. Killing another week goes by
