Big tech CEOs testify before Congress

"So, this hearing just going to say it, it was six hours of chaos. So. So many things like individual moments of pure chaos happened this hearing. But because every member of Congress was only given five minutes to ask the questions in and they moved on, no one could process the moments of cash. So here are some things that happened during this hearing. Jeff. bezos just started eating nuts on his call. That was just a thing that you started snacking for the first ninety minutes. It appears that basis had tech issues was operating in some kind of delay. So we didn't hear from him. They just answer any questions and they'd take a ten minute break Jeff. bezos could fix his computer. Amazing. Jim Jordan, who McKenna pointed out. On the show last week is always sort of chaos element. Try to talk over several members of Congress got yelled to put his mass back on floated. Just elaborate conspiracy theories. was when I say was chaos I. Don't know if there's any other way to describe it. I. Think that led a lot of people to think the hearing itself didn't accomplish its goals, but I think in many ways it did. But Kennedy you WanNa Kinda go through what the committee was trying to accomplish the themes they were pointed at in. How hearing played out, right. So okay. First off. Harkening back to last week I mentioned Jim. Jordan's mountain dew obsession. Definitely drink a handful those throughout the hearing I took notes in screen shots. So, I, called it. But regardless of their pores soda choices, there were a lot of lawmakers who definitely did their homework and I think that was really apparent throughout the entire hearing and when I look at. The picture that they tried to paint I think that became really clear in chairman Sicily's opening statements. So this is the guy who liked. And spearheaded the entire investigation from the beginning, and in those opening statements, he pointed out that yeah Apple Amazon Google facebook. There are different in a lot of ways and they exhibit anticompetitive behaviors potentially allegedly and a lot of different ways. But what they tried to pull together and was a story, and it's really hard to tell a story and five minute fragments. But what happened yesterday was Sicily. Ni, and a lot of the Democrats on the Committee wanted to point out that these companies they become bottlenecks for distribution whether that's information or just like APP stores marketplace's they control what gets distributed in how what was really key to the investigation was how? How they survey competitors. If you have so much control dominance over a market or a specific part of the tech industry, you have a lot of insight into your competitors and you can do a lot of dangerous things with that, and then lastly, after that dominance has gained, it's how they abuse it. Right? How they abuse it to make harder for small businesses in competitors and I think that's exactly what Cellini pointed out in the beginning and I think they did a poor job that storytelling throughout the process. But I think that's also our job. Right is to pull that evidence together and tell that story for them in a way that isn't like. Yes, no yelling at CEOS and like stopping them and I think by getting that in the evidentiary record doing all this questioning, I think they really did achieve their goal in the end. Yeah. I mean, I think the thing that happened sort of next to the hearing was that they released a bunch of documents from these one point, three, million documents of clutch. Over the past year, they released pretty targeted selection documents for every company showing some of this stuff, Casey, I wrote a story about. facebook. INSTAGRAM. My I'm going to frame this email or mark Zuckerberg. Literally one sentence, no period. The Andrew says I need to figure out. I'M GONNA buy instagram like I would love to just be in a place were sending that email like super casually like I got this thing to figure out and it's not like am I gonNa buy the model of the car. It's like instagram. I've been thinking of the text messages where so and so says that Mark Zuckerberg's didn't go destroy mode on instagram ever since they got that up. Case she this to Kevin and right that text was. Yes. Well, it was Kevin. System was talking to an investor and Kevin said to the investor. If we don't sell well, mark, go into destroy mode on us and the investor side probably. Of course, stray casual. So there's just a lot of documents and I think one of the functions of hearing was to get those documents into the official congressional record to make the CEO's account for them. That did not seem very successful to me. Is like a takeaway people should have from this hearing, right? No. I think a lot of people that go into these hearings are expecting like these big Gotcha moments and expecting like a lot of news and all this stuff. But it really, it wasn't oversight hearing. You know it wasn't. They didn't come. They came at this like in a report last earlier this week that they came out at as investigators. They didn't come at it to make a big show horse and pony show out of it, and yet I think the CEO's didn't. The record well enough to the extent that they could have. But there was definitely, I was expecting them to do a lot less evasion and I expected a lot less room probation with the documents, but it's just the process of a Congressional hearing. It's. It's hard to do that in a congressional hearing. But if you put those documents out there, you get the CEO's on the record a little bit who does excite this excites the FTC. J, and that's who can take this next and then it's also congress. You know they can't break up a tech company, but they can regulate going forward and it's those three key themes that I pointed out earlier that they could regulate. You know what I mean. They could legislate to forbid companies from surveying competitors and things like that, and that's where this goes. So the format of the hearing, every member and five minute chunks, it seemed very clear that the Democrats had some sort of coordinated evidentiary strategy, they would start and. And they would say, I, want to read this email to you. What did you mean by this email and then Jeff bezos would say something like I have. No idea is on works. I. Was real pattern that developed was basis really not doing or claiming he definitely knows claiming not really no way Wayne is under the thing they did or they would ask sooner Pichai about the very granular add deal google made by an ad product, and soon I, would say I'll get back to you, which is basically all responses. So the Democrats seemed like they were coordinated to move through their documents. The Republicans seem to be doing something else that also seem coordinated intentional, but what was their focus because that seemed clear split my takeaway from Jim Jordan who? We got into earlier, he he was interviewing. As if they were all Jack Dorsey. And as we talked about like, yeah, he invited Jack Dorsey to testify, but he doesn't sit on the antidote subcommittees. Anything. He says, it just doesn't matter. So it sounded to me as if he prepared questions Jack Dorsey and then it was like, oh, he's not coming I'll ask Tim Cook the same questions. Another completely crazy moment that happened just seen by and five minute chunks is that. Represented Sensenbrenner from Wisconsin Dear Sweet Wisconsin. Definitely. Asked Mark Zuckerberg why the Donald Junior was banned from twitter and mark. Zuckerberg was happening on twitter facebook and there was just like a moment of confused silence, and then he tried to move on and that just sort of floated by in the river of chaos to tell you how much chaos there was kneeling. When you started to tell that story, I thought you were going to tell the story about when Jim Jordan asked him cook if the famous one, thousand, nine, hundred, four, Apple Super Bowl, AD was actually about twenty twenty cancel culture, which is another thing that really happened. I think that's out of context. He didn't ask him. He said clearly, this is. That's definitely what Steve Jobs was thinking IBM is canceled culture and Apple's going to break it with hammer and Jeff. Bezos said that social media is a nuance destruction machine and all this crazy stuff from that. It was a wild will that that particular question when Jim Jordan asked, do you support the cancel culture mov, you could see the CEOS like. 'cause they went in order. He asks them all in order. So First Tim Cook just like basically muttered nothing. Here's like I don't. I support speech whatever. The iphone a keyboard like that was his answer. Sooner per child also, just like muttered, right? He's like Google has always supported free expression Zuckerberg like saw the opportunity and took it and the forces of liberalism I rising I, and then basis was like I cannot. I cannot do in like went for it, and that was just totally insane moment. But it also seems like the Republicans were intentional to try to create their own moments where they were yelling at CEOS about bias on platforms is obviously something cover a. At. You were paying a lot of attention that case you're paying a lot of attention to it. Do you think that was effective in creating because you know there's like a parallel conservative Universe Jim? Jordan was on Tucker. Carlson. Last night like was that effective or d think that the CEO's were able to sort of tamp down on interesting the Tucker Carlson pointed out that Google and other companies are all big donors to Jim Jordan another folks. So that is a weird side, but I think it was actually besides the moment where they mixed up twitter with facebook I. Think this was much more effective off. Off Topic yelling about technology than we usually see like are genuinely issues that like they are upset about that, they could point to largely around like cove nineteen misinformation and they could at least like pick those topics and stick to them rather than kind of asking vague questions about like, why is my phone listening to me? Well, they're definitely asked questions about why are my campaign emails getting filtered by G mail? Yes. I should. I should mention that they have really and they have all of these cases where they ask about extremely specific one off incidents that anyone who has used social media knows happens constantly. And, then turn them into a sinister pattern. But I think they managed to come off as sounding more like they understood what they were talking about the unusual. I think that was a real theme of the hearing, Casey. What did you think of this sort of bias side show that occurred? Well, I mean the the idea that conservative voices are being suppressed is foundational to the conservative movement and is behind the rise of conservative talk radio. It was behind the rise of Fox News. Now that social media exists, we have seen it in this new form, but it is sort of being presented as extra, sinister and worthy of. Some sort of legislative intervention what frustrates me about it is that much more than newspapers or or cable news like Mark Zuckerberg Dorsey. These people benefit hugely from having all possible voices on their platform. None of them is incentivized to drive conservatives off their platform. What they are incentivized to do is have rules that make the place safe and welcoming. So that people want to hang out there and so to the extent that there are issues on the platform, they've largely come because these platforms have rules. And you know you would think that a bunch of free marketeers would realize that the alternative to the system that they're so mad about would be creating a new system, but they don't seem at all interested in doing that. So I just sort of dismissed all of them as charlatans I actually thought it was interesting that the opposite track came up, which was the Stop Hey for profit campaign I kind of wasn't expecting that. The representative Raskin I believe asked facebook. Basically, why aren't you kicking more hate speech off. I forget who else asked like look is the point that you're so big. You don't care about advertiser boycotts I. Mean, you know it will here. Here is a fact that the number one complaint that facebook gets from its users, the thing that users. About. FACEBOOK is that it removes too much content and so if you're running the place, you do have to take these complaints seriously in a way. Right? It might not be you know that you shadow band conservative whatever that even means on social network in twenty twenty. But the fact that you're removing content is really upsetting people. So you can't dismiss that idea entirely, but I still don't feel like we're having that intellectually honest conversation about it. So this was definitely I feel like you can connect the you control distribution. We're GONNA show the abuses of power narrative. We got other. Democrats. With the you control distribution. You're banning conservatives right like I. Think what's Sensenbrenner Again, cups and conservatives are consumers to is that people don't realize that like fifty percent of the population in many ways. But facebook has like famous conservatives working its highest levels Kevin. We last week, we're talking about Kevin Roose keeps sharing the list. List of the most engaged content from crowd tangle. It's all conservative content, and that's so problematic for facebook that they're. They're pushing back with other metrics and graphs of their own, making the facts just aren't there, but it doesn't seem to be convincing. Brett Kevin is being asked to recuse himself from facebook case because he's like best friends with facebook I, AP I wrote a column almost two years ago. Now, arguing that conservatives were trying to redefine. Any conservative identified person having any unwanted outcome on a social network, right? So bias is your name was higher than mine in search results. Bias is used suggested that I follow a Democrat and not a Republican right, and if you take action on your policies that apply to everyone against me a conservative that is biased against conservatives, right. So and by the way I have to say this has been hugely successful because we've talked about it. How many minutes now and the longer that these discussions. Discussions. Go on. They just sort of refi people's minds. The idea that there really is a vast conspiracy to silence conservative speech because he's networks are so big millions of conservatives are having experiences like this every day, and now there is an ideology that is basically a religion for them to attach to, which is although Silicon Valley liberals are out to get. Reason I wanted to talk about the conservative side show, which in many ways was a circus is it feels like the notion that we should be punitive to the companies or mad at the company's. Bipartisan, right we were. We were not looking at a hearing where the Democrats were on the attack. Republicans are saying we love. Apple. We're looking at hearing where they were. Everyone was mad. There are a couple of exceptions to that. There were a couple of I think sensenbrenner and a few other folks were like look we want to be clear. Big is not bad. We just WANNA make sure we're not punishing you for your success, but you were like almost entirely, right? Yeah. I. Mean I. think that's it's important to. To capture that mood like Jeff Bezos Mark Zuckerberg, Tim, Cook soon. Darpa, try they usually get to finish whatever sentence they start saying. Right. They're not used to being interrupted. Their thoughts are usually like you know they get to live in complete sentences and people take them seriously here in five in intervals, they were interrupted almost every time they started speaking to be told that they were wrong that they were filibuster at one point Sicily said stop thinking is for the questions. We can just assume they're all good questions. They. Were getting yelled at and they're going yell that about a variety of things that were pretty specific. So you kind of in your kind of structure here. The first one was controlling distribution. What did you hear as a hearing went on the indicated to that? The committee had a case here? I think the apple's APP store is one thing you know charging thirty percent cuts on certain things is just controlling an APP store. It's the same thing with Amazon's marketplace. They can inherently in control what gets placed and what gets sold and you know if they want to play with search results on Amazon, they can do that, and then on facebook and Google, it's not just like products and software that's information. And it could be information when it's like Google. Google. Stealing yelps, texture views right in putting those in its little info boxes in search queries in facebook if facebook is just like an. Mation, distribution platform and. It can decide Algorithm Mickley. Knowingly. What people get to see this bution was very keen to the committee's hearing yesterday and they pointed out different aspects in which you know each company exhibited that kind of behavior. So the one that will you bring up apple? We wrote about this, say there's much emails. Apples document production is just one hundred and thirty pages of unrelated emails and whatever order see it's like scan through it. So there's a lot of little stories in there. There's one about right to repair and apple realizing it needed to repair. By watching PR people operate by reading their emails journalists. Very entertaining. They're like we had a break like here's our strategy. Here's we're GONNA. That's all in there. You can look at it, but there's a lot about the APP store itself and how they're going to use the mechanics of the APP store to control their platform, and it started at the beginning like the first emails in this production from twenty, ten there. From Phil, Schiller Steve Jobs saying, are we GONNA? Let Amazon Sell Books in the kindle store. Store, it felt like I saw an Amazon ad was hard to watch this hard to watch this ad where a person's reading a book on an iphone in the kindle APP in the pick up an android phone keep reading. He's like literally like it was hard to watch like Schiller's at home like pain what a customer is having an experience that good it really just. Heart and so he's like it was hard to watch. You fours Steve Jobs. They're like we gotta shut it down jobs is the bookstore will be the only bookstore on the APP. Store. That's the way it's going to be everyone's gotta used to it. We know that restricting payments will hurt other things, but that's what we're doing and they started there in two thousand ten and they pulled it out, and then that ladders up into everything that we've seen with, hey, ladders up into the analysis group showing up to. Apple, can pay them to say that there's independent study has revealed. Everybody has a thirty percent cut. It has landed up into Tim Cook, forwarding. He gets a letters from developers that are in this direction. It's like apples breaking my heart and he just like Ford's it. Tim, Cook forwards that email to filter credit eighty, just as thoughts like amazing like they are constantly thinking about the APP store as a mechanism of control for the platform in the leverage and other deals. So the other one was apple is this Amazon one which I have very mixed feelings on saying that this is bad or legal I'm curious for all of your thoughts famously. Did, not have the prime video APP on the Apple TV and all these other places apple, Amazon came to a deal. There's an entire presentation in this production like the slide deck of how the deal is going to work. Apple got to be the preferred seller of its own product. So third parties cancel. Apple. Products, Amazon pages, they got. They have a custom by flow. They've custom product pages, all the stuff in return. Amazon got a lower commission on the APP store and gets to Selatan products which no. No like you can rent a movie from the Amazon APP on the Apple TV, no one else gets to it in one world. This is just pure platform collision, right? Apple cut VIP deal for big companies because it wanted something and you could say this is legal in another world. It's like this is how deals work apple something valuable. Amazon s something valuable and they came to a conclusion wherever made more money and quite frankly the consumer experience platform has got better. How do you read that? Casey? That is good and fair analysis of it. I. Think I did read slightly more scandalous. Tones into it in part because apple would never acknowledge that some developers are more important to it than others even though if you assume that that's true, I think maybe one of the things that's frustrating about it is there is no transparency accountability around which developers get sweetheart deals is that once you hit a certain threshold of revenue will cut your price. Why couldn't they extend that deal to everyone right? Or is it just if we withhold something that seems particularly valuable, we can eventually drag you to the table. Table, which is sort of what seems like happened here. I think in all cases, what I'm always looking for is the accountability, right like and some sense of of equitable treatment of developers and I understand the guys are always going to get the best treatment, but it can that be publicly visible. Can it be acknowledged and there'd be routes for others to achieve that same level of success and treatment, and that I'll just seems missing here. Did you buy Tim Co? He said it twice. It was obviously A. Glimmer, of sympathy for all four CEOS. There is a lot of reporting that they had spent months preparing for this hearing like being grilled there, they'd hire outside law firms. They. Practiced they all clearly had soundbites memorized in none of them. Got To say him because it kept getting interrupted. Tim Cook had this one where he is like if we're the gatekeepers, the gates are open wider than ever. We've gone from five hundred. APPS to one point seven, he said like. A whole speech. and. The thing is there's fierce competition for developers. They don't like our store can do for android the windows. For xbox and PS. Four. Which I was like the idea that adobe is going to be like we don't want to be on the IPAD. Here's PS. Four Photoshop is insanity to me. I'm going to build a spreadsheet. APP. For the five. That's how frustrated with Tim Cook. To that ring. True to you I. Mean, there's no, it does not ring true. There is a, there is a duopoly. In the United States when it comes to smartphones, iphones have majority share in the United States and you can't say, well, you know there's there's a rogue fork of android in Malaysia that you could go develop for if you really wanted to and have that come across as a credible argument to Americans. Right it is. Natural for any monopolist to spend most of its time, arguing that it is much smaller and much less consequential as as you think it is and they're essentially always asking you to ignore what is in front of your face, which is that they are the giant. They are in control. What they say goes, and it doesn't matter which small businesses get hurt along the. The. Way I would point out that the contact and we're gonNA talk about earnings eventually. But the context for that is apple had its biggest third quarter ever this month, their revenues went up eleven percent year over year, they're making obviously making billions of dollars in their services revenue, which is a lot of the narrative around the APP stores increasing that services line. Also went up. I think it was thirteen billion. So you're right. They're very big in their earnings the day after the hearing did nothing. To reduce that impression. I want to switch to Amazon a little bit McKenna. You really focused Amazon was basis first time up there. They came at him a lot about marketplace. How did you think that went I think it went pretty good. I. Think. John Paul specifically was just like killer her questions with breakout star. Yeah. She was just like killer and she's the representative for. SEATTLE. So this is where Amazon is right. So she just like killed it and. And I think there were a couple of instances in the documents and in questioning yesterday that really pulled important things out there was like testimony from one bookseller who was like, yeah. We just can't sell a category of books and we don't know why Amazon doesn't let us do that just like testimony like that or even when it comes to like acquisitions, the ring acquisition especially, I wrote about that today through the documents and how. They said, this is for market position. This is a for technology, your talent or anything. We just bought this and that's something that base said again, yesterday he was just very clear. It's like, yeah, we do buy things market position, which is like so insane just here like the richest person in the world. But like, yeah, we're buying market position. It's just what happens. That's another one I have mixed feelings right, and by the way, people should read McKenna story because those documents have just a very funny breakdown like the pros and cons of buying. Buying ring in many of the cons like what if this turns into nest, which if you're just the verge cast listeners like it's just like the Keyword Bingo, but it's fine to say, we're buying market position like this isn't the best product out there, but it's the category of video. doorbells is not huge, right? So to by the the market leader in video doorbells is maybe the most rational use of the money. What is the problem that you think the committee was trying to show an address sense of we're just going to market position. Pointing out, they can just do whatever they want and how casual it is, and there really isn't. It's really funny to read an email like that, and we could buy it or we could just copy it or are. We could just watch. You know that was one of the emails that base from someone. Those are just three options you know and it's like just pick and choose you know. Pointed out like a lot. Just that email itself really pointed out just how easy it is for them. They used a lot of that time history to talk about copycat behaviors and to talk about just like you know buying up competitors and it just seeing that all in one little e mail having to do with the ring was like really i. think it was really kind of I opening and especially like useful for the committee. So Amazon got hit a lot for the data collection side of it of copying competitors. bezos did not seem to have great answers there. Right. So that's the. The thing they got in trouble with this. There is that Wall Street. Journal article from like April where employees were literally like, yeah. We dip into data and we use that to guide our own private label products and everybody was like Whoa and Amazon basins. Yesterday said, well, we do have a policy that bans that but giant pointed out yesterday. It's like, okay. So what's your enforcement look like you can have the policy, but like if you don't enforce it, then it's like meaningless. And then yesterday I. Think Paul was like, can you give me a yes or no answer? Do you dip into data and he's like I can't I can't give you. Yes or no, and we're just like we're looking into it. The story had anonymous sources. So that isn't very helpful to us. You know what I mean. So that was one of the main things and that Wall Street Journal article and I think it's the same kind of examples in the committee's documents. They point out specific examples like car trunk, organizers of all things. It's like weird little products like Amazon's like this is a little hot. Maybe we should do that. So I, I think. I, think they made a good case yesterday. Yesterday on that. Yeah. I mean bezos brought up that Wall Street Journal, Article himself twice, and he was like, well, your policy against it. But I can't guarantee never happened. Then there is a strange just didn't come across clear I. Think I know what the committee was trying to get at their like US aggregate seller data when there's only three sellers and then only to sellers? Yes, I. Think what they're getting at is when you're down to the aggregate data of two companies, you heard effectively looking at individual data. What is the problem? They're like the I get what you're doing. You're just reducing the denominator to get to one, but like it, why is that particular problem? Right? Well, none of these. Dipping into individual seller data and looking at aggregate data. That's not a legal. There is no law. This is all voluntary of Amazon. So they have a voluntary policy where like we can't do individual seller data, but they say nothing against aggregate and aggregate what you're getting at eight. Here you is. Does the same thing if it's just like some goofy little product they. They bring up pop stock. It's all the time before pop tops in a moment. Right? There's only like one pop. So company like you know pop soggy, it was kind of an innovative product. It's like well, if there's only two of them and use the aggregate data, you you you have everything you need to know you know about that product line looking aggregate. If that's what you decide to qualify as do you as you're looking through the other Amazon documents and other stuff. So anything jump out at you is something the committee was trying to prove or get at. The questioning seemed very focused on. Like are you using the state at a copy products? Are you buying things? You shouldn't buy. There's one question which I did not understand why came up about DMC. Take downs on twitch and Jeff as just had this look of panic in his eyes. He's like I don't know man I bought Wedge because my kids want to. Do something like that was like the side show stuff, but the real focus here, it just seemed like it was definitely in the marketplace, right? Amazon, everyone came at Amazon for the marketplace. That's what everybody knows him as like they have all these little sides. They got rain. They got Alexa Alexa was one thing too. That was kind of interesting. It's like. Are you buying things like ring to put Alexa into and dislike expand your like Titan Ism as like an Internet Internet connected home. Thing and make that more closed off and walled gardening. That was one thing. But no, it was just focusing on how much power they have to kind of change. What happens in the marketplace to kind of decide what companies in what products are able to come up on the first page of results. You know that's also something that they dug into Google and in something that one of those like themes that kind of ties everything together. We should say they all spend a lot of time talking about counterfeit goods, and why is it Amazon removed? Fake stuff from the platform and how much is it profiting off of you know selling pick rolexes? Is it surprising? The whole foods didn't show up at all they're. Like that is a really massive thing. Amazon owns that. Is it moving into a huge new product category? I think whole foods is not an online marketplace, which was the title of the hearing, not that that restricted anybody from doing anything except that, one of the things Amazon says is we have lots of competition from offline marketplaces, right? Brought up kroger a lot I mean, this is the case he's point. They all made. It seem like they were beset at any moment. They could be crushed by the likes of stop and Shop Right? Like I think the point though was really on the. Digital. Experience Consumers have and like I, don't know Ho-. Foods fits. Into that narrative, especially, because it is itself not dominant like they bought it because you needed to grow in their. Good at that at my question for you on the Amazon stuff was when you think about, we talk about two thirty a lot right like you and I in particular spent a lot time to thirty, which regulates with the platform can do with content. There's not really an equivalent of two thirty for goods on store. Right like there's some case is out there saying like you're liable for what what happens on your online store page, but Amazon doesn't have that like second order of like Messi nece around it that twitter and facebook to with two thirty, I. Mean, it gets invoked a lot for marketplace's, but it's way messier. Well, I just wanted to like this question at counterfeits question about ranking the store like they are even more free than any twitter is to to sort tweets algorithm. Algorithm clear to modern like it just their store. Do you think that they're like that Algorithm transparency? Your wire things ranked. Did you catch a sense that that's where the regulation is GonNa go. So much of the conversation around Amazon really felt like it was individuals sellers being wronged for reasons of Amazon being unresponsive or stealing. It's data. So I don't know it didn't. It didn't seem like a really big focus of the hearing, but it is a huge deal. Yeah. The, digital marketplace frame of this, which is where we have talked to. Cellini. That's where he's going right like facebook and Google very digital. They have like they don't do physical goods. Really. Apple is the APP store. It's all digital goods. Amazon is the one where it's. Front to a lot of physical things, and that is the only place where I can see this regulation needing to make some sort of like major meaningful distinction in I. Didn't see it in the hearing, but I was curious of you caught a glimmer of it. I'm not positive that they have to make a huge distinction there like depending on what they come up with because. So much of this is about their companies and whatever product they produced. The issue is more or less whether or not they're being surveilled and unfairly by targeted and crushed by that data surveillance. All right. We have gone for forty minutes. We should take a quick break. I said I wasn't going to go by company and it happens. So we should come back and talk with facebook Ango. We'll be right back. This is advertiser content. When I say utopia what comes to mind. Birds Chirping lush natural beauty dialed up and vibrant technicolor. Is it within reach. Your world world. World. explained. You are an essential part of the perfect social body. Every Body Matt Place. Everybody happy now while the peacock original series, brave new world takes place in a scientific futuristic utopia. A concept is nothing new Sir Thomas more. I introduced the theory five hundred years ago. But we keep looking for that community identity stability of aldous Huxley's Utopia and not finding it Americans are the unhappiest they've been in decades, and we're increasingly lonely whereas in a utopia. Everyone belongs to everyone else. In nineteen forty-three, the psychologist Abraham. maslow's developed a theory of Utopia. One that allows total self determination in basic terms. maslow's theory says that in Utopia, we decide for ourselves, what we need and how we're GONNA get it in Huxley's Utopia citizens always get what they want and don't want what they can't get. Sounds. Pretty good. Right. Then why can't we make it happen? For a Utopian Society the work we might need to disband some of the things we hold dearest marriage government privacy individualism even family. See for yourself. If a Utopian world is as perfect as it seems watch brave new world now streaming only on peacock. These are really difficult crazy stressful times, and if you're trying to sort of cope, it could be helpful to find something that gets beyond like doom scrolling and like obsessive worried. But digs into what is really going on underneath the surface, and that's what the weeds is all about I. Matthew Yglesias. Weeds podcast here on the box meeting podcast network. This is podcast for people who really want to understand the policy debates and policy issues that shaping our world. We've seen now more than ever like how relevant policy is to our actual lives, but so much in the news isn't focused on really understanding and explaining detail way if that sounds good to you, join us for the weeds, every Tuesday and Friday to find out what's going on why matters and what we can do about it. You could download the weeds on apple spotify or wherever else you get your podcasts. Tracy. When it comes to facebook I turn to you. FACEBOOK is patience consumer of startups as what we've learned. Yeah. But you said something to me yesterday was interesting, which is everyone else's problems are forward looking and it feels like facebook's problems are actually in the past break for people explain what you mean. Yeah. So when Congress is looking at any trust with respect to these four companies for three of them, it's It's sort of about the marketplaces that their operating right now with facebook, the question is much more about should we have allowed it to buy serum? Should we have allowed it to buy WHATSAPP and most of the antitrust conversation that was around facebook yesterday was all about that. What did Mark Zuckerberg know about Instagram, and when did he know it? We wrote a story based on some documents that the house released yesterday. In which facebook has clearly identified instagram as a competitor. In at least some ways and wants to go after it and knock it off the table, and so that's kind of where the focuses their facebook and Burke did get a lot of other questions yesterday, but it tended to be much more about content moderation and things that don't have a lot to do with antitrust. So there was weird section where they asked the face. Face Research APP in the novel, Vpn? Any kind of got lost well, explain what happened and I'm curious reactions. Yeah. So facebook has a bunch of nifty tech tools to figure out what's trending which APPs or the kids using, and so that can essentially have an early warning system if it needs to consider acquiring something or more likely in these days, go out clone it. and. So Zuckerberg was asked about the way that the company uses these systems and if they are anti competitive I, think you know traditional antitrust law probably would not say copying an APP feature is anti competitive, but could lobby written in the future about it shirt I. Think the one that caught me was I mean, this is what I'm. McKenna's points from earlier is like one of the themes here is, are you so dominant that you can collect data that's unfair and then use that to crush or killer competitors, and definitely bought the Inaba VPN to do it. That's true. Now, when I've asked executives at facebook about this, what they'll say is they don't get surprised anymore. When you have three point, one billion people using your apps around the world. You know what links they're sharing, you know what they're talking about. And so you're not going to need some kind of specialized tool to know that WHATSAPP is really taking off. Right. So they would argue that, yes, these tools were useful to them, but you know at their scale, they know what's popular now, which doesn't really seem like addresses, the problem is reached. The fact that we're so big that we're all knowing is maybe not the defense that they sometimes presented as so here's what I didn't get. I thought, Zuckerberg I want to the instagram. What's about who's issues, but on the facebook research front, the data front, they him about this APP facebook research, which you were giving to teens. They were deploying with an enterprise certificate that story broke apple revoke the certificate, and all of facebook's internal APPs went dark, and this is a scandal story after story about it, they went on for two days. So I can I, don't recall that APP? Just how he you know, he remembers the day that all facebook's internal APPS went down and people couldn't go to the cafeteria. I would agree I found that answer. Extremely, ed? Persuasive. that. Do you think that was like actually strategic for him to be like, I, don't know and then come back later and correct the record I do remember when that happened I. Mean. I really don't know I mean also you know during a six hour hearing, it's also possible that you just you get flustered or you miss here something or or something because. Yeah. As as you say, I'm sure he remembers the day that apple turned off their internal APPS I mean. Honestly. Seems like an opportunity to talk about apple's market power, and the fact that you know a day of work canceled at facebook because apple got mad. But I think most of the CEO's didn't go into yesterday a wanted to pick fights with each other. It was kind of sad that they didn't. I was Kinda hoping that Tim Cook take a shot at soccer burger. Point that the other two APP platforms I was expecting it. It was there. It was. There was all there. So cellini ended and he ended the whole meeting with closing statement. He said, some of these companies didn't get broken out. They all need to get regulated in the off too much power that some of them I. don't these breaking up apple. What sort of break. Right like. The division get sent into the corner thing about what it's done. Right. Does should spin out the finder team I've always wanted to. A clean is always that they want to. They want the APP store to be separate from the IPHONE. Basically, that's the thing I always hear. Can't break I. Think you can write some strong regulations but not playing you're on store, right. But like Elizabeth Warren's point was it's cleaner if it's two companies, but it's still a gigantic remedy that I don't think there's a lot of like like consumer or public opinion is going to walk into an Apple Cup I think you'll radio at marketplace. It seems very clear that we says some of them she broken up he is talking about facebook. I have a twenty percent conference level. He might be talking with Google and Youtube as well. But if he's going to say some of the need to get broken up like it's facebook, did you hear anything yesterday that supported that conclusion or Saudi stocks I? MEAN HE I don't remember which Republican it was, but he was like the Obama FTC looked at this and they said it was minding love. Obama. Right. Like. Why would we go back in time to relook at I? Mean, there is a belief and I mean. Somebody who thinks there could be a lot of benefit in instagram and WHATSAPP being different companies from facebook. And the reason you ask. So many questions about that acquisition as you're making the case that it never should have been approved in the first place, and so now you need to remedy it. So that was actually like the entire thrust of the argument against facebook yesterday. I think, you could probably make just as good a case that Amazon after spin out aws, but lawmakers chose not to make that case. Yeah. I think that also gets into. Politics of the acquisition of the time. To his credit is like nobody knew instagram would actually be a success like we made it a success. It didn't happen by itself. I, don't know if the lawmakers. By award, these guys said, but I don't know that he actually made that case very persuasively. and. Who knows I mean? That's like anything could have happened. Right? Cram could've stayed independent and rapidly grown and overtaken facebook like that's something that could have happened. It could have kind settled into a middle zone like snapchat or twitter seems more likely to me although I think probably would have been bigger than those two but. You're never going to know I mean it is true that facebook gave Mike and Kevin it instagram enormous resources. A lot of the reasons why Mike and Kevin sold was because running tiny startup that's blowing up is absolutely exhausting Mike. Krieger. was dragging his laptop all around San. Francisco. Because the servers were melting at all times of the day whenever Justin Bieber. Posted like the site stopped working and they really we need help. Finding a person who can quickly fix this? So we don't have to like that is the reason that they were entertaining these offers and wanted to sell it. So that is also thing that happened. Do you think that that same kind of argument or approach can apply to what's up? What's up basically did not come up yesterday and all the focus on Instagram, but that's the other one, right? Yeah, and we know weirdly a lot less about that acquisition I. Think it's because people in America just have so much less love for what's APP generally. That, it's never seemed as important. What happened to WHATSAPP as what happens to instagram even though WHATSAPP, is used, you know way more, it probably has way more engagement even than instagram does so I don't know why that didn't come up as often. We know there was a competitive bidding war for that as well. Goule. Wanted it as well. You know Mark Zuckerberg made them an offer, they can't refuse. Do you think everyday Google's we should've spent more money on what's whatsapp like this could have been solved. Should have, but Google has been placed under an ancient curse that prevents them from ever making the right decision about any social product. So it was doomed never to happen. It's fun looking through the documents and watching them casually say they should buy facebook dot com. Yeah, that. Point. That is how they talk like the window into these executives just casually being like we should just this thing or maybe not, or we should just copied ourselves and kill it before it gets any traction like it's repeated over and over again last facebook question. This one is like harder to parse because I. There's a chance, it's October is just joking around but. But. He's in many of these emails. He's like the thing about startups, as you can always buy them, which I think the committee thinks is a smoking gun, right? Like facebook's entire plan is to buy the competition to get the data from wherever they get it to say, oh, man, this apps popping, we just buy it and kill it before it competes with us. I. Think he actually said at one point. That's a joke. Yes, he did and I believe that you know it was two thousand, twelve, right? He was probably still in his mid twenties. At that point, the company was a lot smaller like people were joking around like there's more loose talk when companies are younger and I do think. It was it was part of that. I think the more interesting question becomes. Let's say facebook is telling the truth about everything. Let's say they thought it was going to be a successful acquisition, but they never knew it was gonna big as it became today and they invested in it and it got super big. Okay. Well, now, it's as big as it is. Should they be allowed to keep? Keep it or should they be forced to spend it out and if you're GONNA force them to spin it out. What's the argument that you'RE GONNA. Make about why one question that I have a lot is clearly the referral they're gonNa make, and it seems like if you don't have some other reason, we've heard hints that there's some other reason, the FTC scrutinize this that will eventually be revealed. But what you're saying is the antitrust standard at the time, the Consumer Hartman stand, which is still our standard. Says, you have to prove prices will go up both products for free. You're screwed. Right? There's nothing to review because you're not gonNA prove prove that free products are gonNA get more expensive. I think it's pretty unfair if you change the standard and you go back in time and say you missed that standard. So I think there has to be something else there. Well, what was the standard by which at and T. was broken up? Right? Like presumably at and T. didn't used to be that big, and then it just got really big and then they broke it up at least. That's the thumbnail understanding I have of that break-up. Well, yeah. But then reformed itself. Right. But because of lax antitrust regulation, right? Like it wasn't a naturally occurring phenomenon that all those APPS got back to the other or was that just sort of like inattention to capitalism It's like in the seventies and eighties. This is Tim moves book the cursive bigness in the seventies and eighties Robert Bork I can't talk about Robert on this podcast. Are we doing this right now. Robert was very influential judge Appellate Judge Federal Appellate? Judge. And basically moved the antitrust law to the consumer harm standard as part of a movement called and economics. A whole thing Robert. Bork. Mostly famous because he was not appointed. He was nominated Supreme Court by Reagan but they leaked video tape rental history, and then he didn't get nominated and that is where the expression getting bork's comes from. This is all true Netflix's still has to abide by videotape data privacy act is a whole. This is all true when facebook and Netflix had some partners, Nansen? Partnership. To. Automatically share your net flicks, watch history to facebook. They're like pending the change of this law which we are working on Robert Bork. He haunts us all. I'm sorry, I can't believe this much. Yeah I. think that's just like the law changed in the in the seventies and eighties, the standard change. The conversation right now is a very much about changing it back months and months ago, pre pandemic, we had an economist from I. Think it was Nyu Thomas Philippon came on the show, and he was like look you have this natural ab test going on in the world where the European Union when it formed was like, how do we get an economy like America's? So, we'll just take their competition policies pretty good, and at the same time we changed consumer harm standard. So everything you're seeing the EU is basically our old competition antitrust standard in. You can see how active they are in everything. Here's a new consumer welfare standard. Whether you believe, this is actually a functional Ab test given. The state of both governments is up for debate, but that was his point I thought. It was spare can say.

Big Tech CEOs Testimony Before Congress

"Today was the day as I record these words the big tech CEO's are still testifying before Congress. So I'm going to have to do a summary of what I've seen just in the first couple of hours or so and leave some of the juicier question and answer back and forth for tomorrow. I up a note on the format that we've been seeing. Yes. All of the CEOS were testifying remotely. They were using Cisco Webex as the video conferencing tool and it seemed to work fairly well at least right until this very moment as I turned off the stream to go into the booth to record this, they took a ten minute recess because apparently one of the witnesses. was having an issue with their stream or feed, and I'm wondering if it might have been Jeff Bezos because at least thus far were almost an hour and a half into the testimony and he hadn't been asked a single question. Anyway back to the whole idea of testifying remotely if I were going to do one of those rate, my video call backgrounds reports. Bezos look like he was in some sort of executive boardroom, lots of tasteful Chomsky's behind him. Look like he was in a conference room at a high end law firm I couldn't tell what Zuckerberg was sitting in front of it looked like closed vertical blinds almost like I don't know some sort of like a bunker like if you're battening down your house for a Hurricane Tim, Cook was in front of some sort of tasteful plant trough though he was clearly working off an ipad pro. Let's start off with what the Fab four had to say in their opening statements. Amazon's Jeff bezos underscored Amazon's job creation, its investments in social causes and its role in supporting small and medium-sized businesses. And made the case that Hey Amazon is just a tiny competitor in a huge global market quote. The global retail market we compete in is strikingly large and extraordinarily competitive Amazon accounts for less than one percent of the thousand five, trillion dollar global retail market and less than four percent of retail in the US unlike industries that are winner take all there's room in retail for many winners for example. More than eighty retailers in the US. Alone earn over one billion dollars in annual revenue like any retailer we know that the success of our store depends entirely on customer satisfaction with their experience in our store every day Amazon competes against large established players like target Costco Kroger and of course, Walmart a company more than twice Amazon size, and while we have always focused on producing a great customer experience. For retail sales done primarily online sales initiated online are now in even larger Growth Area for other stores Walmart's online sales grew seventy four percent in the first quarter and customers are increasingly flocking disservices invented by other stores. Amazon still can't match at the scale of other large companies like curbside pickup and in store returns and quote alphabets. Soon, Darpa, Chai, said that Google also operates in a highly competitive. Market and that it's free products benefit the average American quote. A competitive digital ad marketplace gives publishers, advertisers, and therefore consumers an enormous amount of choice pichai stated, for example, competition and ads from twitter instagram comcast and others has helped lower online advertising costs by forty percent over the last ten years with these savings pass down to consumers through lower prices in areas like travel and real estate Google faces strong. For search queries for many businesses that are experts in those areas. Today's competitive landscape looks nothing like I. Did five years ago let alone twenty one years ago when Google launched its first product Google search people have more ways to search for information than ever before and quote. Tim Cook of Apple said that the APP store has opened the gate wider for software developers. Also, apple doesn't have dominant market share quote as much as we believe, the iphone provides the best user experience. We know it is far from the only choice available to consumers Cook said after beginning with five hundred APPs today the APP store hosts more than one point seven, million, only sixty of which are apple software. Clearly, if apple is a gatekeeper, what we have done is open the gate wider we want to get every APP we can on the store, not keep them off and quote. And facebook's mark. Zuckerberg said well, but he said a thousand times before that facebook knows it has more work to do on things like fighting misinformation and that you know companies aren't bad simply because they're big. And he took pains to point out that facebook is an American success story quote although people around the world use our products. FACEBOOK is a proudly American company. He said, we believe in Values Democracy Competition Inclusion and free expression that the American economy was built on many other tech companies share these values, but there's no guarantee our values will win out for example China. Is Building its own version of the Internet focused on very different ideas and they are exporting their vision to other countries as Congress and other stakeholders. Consider how antitrust laws support competition in the US. I believe it's important to maintain the core values of openness and fairness that have made America's digital economy, a force for empowerment and opportunity here and around the world and quote. In his opening remarks, the chairman of the Committee David. Sy-. Selena Rhode. Island. Laid out three areas of inquiry that the was scheduled to delve into at least in questioning from the Democratic Congress folk more on that in A. Quitting CNBC, each platform allegedly serves as a quote bottleneck for a key channel of distribution and quote the platforms allegedly used their control over digital infrastructure to Sir Vail other companies, their growth business activity, and whether they might pose a competitive threat and use that information to maintain their own power and third the platforms allegedly abused their control over current technologies to extend their power through tactics like self referencing their own products. Quote. Prior to the cove nineteen pandemic, these corporations already stood out as titans in our economy. Silly said in the wake of Covid nineteen however, they are likely to emerge stronger and more powerful than ever before, and he concluded by saying quote, our founders would not bow before a king nor should we bow before the emperor's of the online economy and quote? But as I say, while this was labelled as an anticompetitive antitrust inquiry, it seems like the Republican Congress folk were primarily interested in probing alleged bias against conservative users. In fact, Jim Jordan. One of the ranking Republican representatives spent most of his opening remarks railing against. which if that continues would basically be exactly what all of the CEOS in the talking head boxes would be hoping for right lots of distraction and no real spotlight on them. In fact, a lot of the most heated questions directed at a company that's not even present. We'll see if that continues but I have to say straight off Chairman Sicily and was very specific targeted sharp questions. He kept interrupting folks when they started to stray into doublespeak and the very nature of the questions from him and others at least so far. This wasn't like previous congressional hearings we've covered where the congress folk didn't seem to even understand the businesses they were investigating, and maybe that was because I don't know if you saw the woman sitting very prominently very obviously behind Mr. Cecil lean. Let me let the Washington Post fill you in on who that was quote as a twenty eight year old law student Lena Con penned a twenty four thousand word article for Yale Law Journal titled Amazon's antitrust. Paradox. The article described how US antitrust law isn't equipped to deal with tech giants such as Amazon. Even as the company has made itself as essential to commerce in the twenty first century in the way that railroads and telephone systems had in the previous century con now works as counsel for the antitrust subcommittee she has worked with Sylvain to develop his case against the tech giants including Amazon and quote. As I said, the questioning is continuing as I speak these words in fact I just heard that they came back from their recess. The whole thing did kick off hour late only getting started at one PM, eastern? So I don't think it'll be done before for five PM at least. So again, I'll put together a summary of all of the juicy exchanges happening now for tomorrow.

Key issues as big tech CEOs face Congress

"As we're talking right now and over the last couple hours, and just because of the show, I have not had a chance to listen. There's another Very vital hearing that's taking place where the heads of the elite big tech companies Are facing questions from this panel again, you know, with on the make up of obviously Republicans and Democrats, Doug you first and then John, you chime in next How significant is this? That we're seeing. Ah, Apple, and we're seeing Google. And we're seeing Facebook and not just members of those companies, the leaders of those companies facing significant questions. On the power they wield and the fact that the power is seemingly on ly getting bigger by the hour. Well, I think it's very significant on and it's a good thing, of course, that the top officers of the the companies are appearing and responding to these questions, but it's certainly a measure. Off the power that these firms Ah wheeled today and of course, it's a power over the content of the public debate because they have such a gate, keeping Ah ah force. They are such a gate keeping force to determine you know what what can and can't get distributed and that people should have can have access to. And of course, there's all kinds of pressure on them to the prohibit to certain things and to prevent hate speech. And what you know what some people would characterize this hate speech. Others would you know, would characterize as ah. Ah, speaking truth to power and so on. And these are very difficult questions. Ah, and there's danger both in them doing too little and too much at the same time. There's no question that these firms And the technology that they've done so much to advance, you know, has has revolutionized public access and the ability for voices to be heard in a way that surely is Beneficial or potentially beneficial, and we don't want to kill that Golden goose, either. So it's it's an important and challenging issues. John what you think Well, pursuing toe what we began talking about with Attorney General Bar. There seems to be too many speeches and not enough listening. So just in one example. This is ostensibly to talk about the power that this big tech firms have. And I think the more profound problem is miss information that is sent Purposefully, And this is in the news as well, often specifically by foreign agents, be they from Russia or China or Iran or North Korea or other hostile actors. Both state and non state. And yet what seems to be stated, you know by some of the Republicans, they're the aforementioned Jim Jordan.

Not meant in his residence. By the way, John, you know, but yeah, not but not mentioning that about seven out of the top 10. You know, top trending either site. Individuals or institutions on Facebook right now are conservatives. Fox News? Other legislators and you know who have been thwarted his just mid medical misinformation and as an example, the president's son, Donald Trump Jr. You know, Pushing forward already debunked medical information about the cove in 19 and so, you know, I don't think that I think that that issue was not Germaine at all. And it's proven by the readership and by where people go online. But it's once again in this particular instance where someone is trying to disprove a political point, as opposed to really contend what the real issue is and the power That these companies have both in the marketplace in the marketplace of ideas.

Bolton book says Trump asked Chinese president for reelection help

"Yesterday there was that anvil of a tell all book from former trump national security adviser John Bolton dropping in media reports including an interview on ABC ABC's political director Rick Klein is here and Rick start with the court rulings a president who presumably planned to boast to supporters in the upcoming rally an election that he fill the courts with conservatives but two big losses your thoughts yeah it's a strange it's a strange situation for him because on one level you're right this could demoralize supporters have been so proud of these pics I and it's kind of strange for the president to have these blows dealt to him I basically citing him for a lack of confidence governance company governance among other things on the other hand did he really want to deport hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants that that existed dreamers right before the election he really want to get people to lobby fired he doesn't I think personally care that much about the social issues in it maybe the Dodge some legislative and legal bullets here and he can now turn this into a rallying cry he's at he's tweeting this just this morning as I'm sure you've seen that Todd maybe the courts have it out against Donald Trump and eventually turned into a different rallying cry at the rally tomorrow yeah well an apparently everybody has it out for him including John Bolton and let's take that up the president is also threatening legal action to prevent his former national security adviser John Bolton from publishing that tell all book the room where it happened it's supposed to be released to the public Tuesday but the cat way out of the bag with interviews he characterizes the president as ill informed driven almost exclusively by his desire for reelection easily influenced by dictators here's your colleague Martha Raddatz add the full interview is going to air Sunday night how would you describe trump's relationship with Vladimir Putin I think Putin thinks he can plan like a fiddle I think Putin is smart tough I think he sees that he's not faced with a serious adversary here I don't think he's worried about Donald Trump well I think they did this kind of judgment from former national security adviser is almost without precedent while the president is still in office to say that he is unfit for office at the catalog confirmation in essence of the charges that brought the impeachment inquiry and a roughly similar situation regarding China it is damning it is devastating I look president has weathered plenty of books before by people like James call me all the way through Arosa but what makes this may be different is the the timing and to have this now dove tail with Joe Biden's messaging about the president of being unprepared for crises as played out with over nineteen and this tense moment around race relations it challenges the president in a fundamental way and he is out there tarring John Bolton I'm saying he's a liar and and it made things often is is out for profit motives but he's going to have to answer for lots of specifics here as well as the general sense that a growing number of Republicans will say that this president just doesn't know what he's doing will ease some of the allegations the president didn't know that Finland isn't part of Russia but you mentioned China it barely according to Bolton trump pleaded with Chinese leader xi to help him win reelection by buying lots of stuff from American farmers and this is from a president who was impeached although not removed from office but impeached for inappropriate relationship with a foreign leader but the well Rick didn't matter to his base or fervent Republican backers like Jim Jordan are you hearing that any of this matters I don't think it's surprising the people that were inclined to to not believe the president a way I think where it has a greater impact is in how the cumulative efforts of of so many folks have to draw on the shortcomings of this White House and you have a Republican group out there that's been a trolling the president with ads in Washington and elsewhere questioning his fitness for office I don't think that John Bolton or really anyone is capable of of of a mass defection among the trump base but for lots of orders you might have questions about his is ready yes or maybe just be weary of the drama surrounding Donald Trump I'm John Bolton it offers an important piece of evidence from someone who literally was in that room when it happened

"jim jordan" Discussed on The Takeout

"From. CBS News this is the takeout with major Garrett while we are creating jobs odds and killing terrorists the congressional Democrats are obsessed with demented hopes is crazy witch hunts and arrange partisan. They say all they know how to do the very recognizable voice for the forty Fifth President United States Donald John Trump at a rally a keep America a great rally in Wildwood New Jersey. That was on Tuesday of this week. Excuse me a major Garrett back in the remaining in the very quiet kind of sterile office Jim Jordan here in the Rayburn House office building For the this conversation of TAKEOUT I. I listened intently. Congressman to the president's legal counsel. They use much less time. The Democrats did and I heard two things and I want to help. If you can have you so help me understand at one point. I heard them say he didn't do it. And there's no evidence he did and all the witnesses buttress the fact he didn't do it and then I heard even if he did it. It's not impeachable cool. So which is it. The fact support the president Completely which which argument that you do you believe in do you find more compelling and persuasive he did it and it's not impeachable impeachable or he never did. It never did it. I mean the facts. I think that's why that's why we've. We've focused on the fact that that I talked about earlier. The reason the president's defense team took less time is because because a couple of hours of facts beats you know twenty one hours of Adam Schiff talking about presumption discussions and hearsay. Case was case was built on all that I mean they brought in all all these witnesses who said someone told me what someone else said about something that might have had it was that was their case. I mean we had Sunland Sean. Our number one witnesses. I saw you ambassador cited six eleven times in their report he was when we went through unchecked. Who did they cite? Most in their twenty one hour presentation Gordon silent which which video clips of the most up. Gordon solid. The same Gordon Sahlin who had to amend. His deposition testimony had to make seven corrections to to his testimony when he was deposed. That's the guy that was their main witness. The Guy who who talked about you know so and so told so and so what someone else said to somebody else. And that was the basis of their impeach his testimony was there there was a quid pro quo on a meeting with Alinsky and the president but there was a presumption that there was a link between the aid and the announcement of investigation. Yeah and I ask him during the hearing. I said 'cause he talked about The quid pro quo. I said when did it happen. And he is responsible for what. When did when did when did announcement happen if they had to announce that they were doing an investigation to get the aid when the announcement happen? Well it did it and they got the money they got the meeting and they got the call so there was no action taken Hakin but to me. That's the whole case. If it was a quid pro quo. And that's what they said. Remember the day before September. Twenty four th when Nancy Pelosi announces. They're gonNA start an impeachment investigation Asian before she's even seen the transcript by the way because the transcript wasn't released until the September twenty fifth. She Announces Impeachment Investigation. And it was all about this. Quid pro quo. That was all the talk. And then we get to call transcript. And they're like well. Maybe not so much a quid pro quo. But then later they come back to the quid pro quo. That never happened it. Never they got the call. They got the money they got the meeting. And there was Never Evan announcement from the Ukrainians they were GonNa do any kind of investigation to Barack Obama or the Biden's and Barista is to remind our audience company hundred Biden worked for well. I don't know if he worked for him but he got paid. He was on the board of directors Corporate governance was the theoretical area of expertise. He brought it has a long history of from the vantage point of not only the United States but others of being corrupt and have An oligarch and corrupt people in around that company remind people. So Jake I want you to care for us now. This sound bite number two again. The recognizable voice of Adam. Schiff Talking about this idea that if there is a vote to call to call in the Senate trial additional witnesses and John Bolton is one of them the White House as you indicated early or earlier would would cert- executive privilege and legal wrangling. That might ensue. Please play that now jake number to the president's lawyers are this duplicitous. I kid you not. They come come into the Senate which they refer to as a court and they say. The House should have sued in court. To enforce subpoenas on witnesses like John Bolton and go to court and they say the house may not sue in court to compel a witness to testify. That's basically what are we going to get a fair trial or or are we not just to catch the audience that reference at the end of that sound bite they go to court and they say the house may not sue in court to compel a witness to testify about a separate matter dealing with Don mcgann the former White House counsel. So the shift contention is wait a minute. If you tell us to go to court to compel John Bolton to testify for the House investigation and and the position of the White House in separate matter but also relevant Don mcgann is you can't go to court to compel testimony. That's a ridiculous argument. Because you're saying one thing on one hand and arguing other legal point on the other but remember Don mcgann testified was deposed for over thirty hour of a special counsel so Adam shift he's trying to have it both ways Having to have it both ways but no but remember and Don mcgann testified for thirty hours and there were White House lawyers lawyers present. Tell me tell me when White House lawyers were present for any depositions that took place in the House Zero Adam. Schiff wouldn't let them Adam. Schiff also would not let age there would have been more witnesses. Mrs Come Forward and testify if Adam Schiff would allowed agency council to be there so not not not the White House. Legal Team Pat sip alone in the White House counsel but just State Department lawyers lawyers if they could have come with some of the witnesses some of the witness said no Adam Schiff said nope. We're not GonNa let I've been on the oversight committee for a long time. Been Congress thirteen years. We've been through lots of these depositions. I was on the Benghazi. Select Committee the Benghazi. We had people who had left. Government like Cheryl Mills who had her own private counsel but guess what there was also State Department lawyers present for her depositions. Adam Schiff said Nope we're not going to allow that so now for Adam Schiff to make this comparison to Don mcgann who sat for thirty hours in front of the special counsel. That is ridiculous. So Adam Schiff has said so many things over the you know. We listened to him for more than half of the twenty one hours. I think the The House Management Team House managers put on their case This is the same Adam Schiff. Who for two years told us? There's more than circumstantial evidence that president trump colluded with Russia to impact the two thousand sixteen election. That was false. This is the the same Adam Schiff. Who Said Oh oh the newness memo? That wasn't accurate. Michael Horwitz just told US last month. It was totally aggregating Devin. Nunes got wrong in his memo. It was is worse than we thought. Adam Schiff has the same guy who said the FIS a process was just fine with with Carter page. Oh really Mr Horowitz. Just didn't investigation for pages but now admits it wasn't yeah in court papers Elsa admit it was wrong house amid was wrong on national television. Jim Komi Jimmy said he said I was wrong. I was overconfident. Infinite two sentences consecutive sentences of Jim. Komi that I never thought I would hear. I never thought here Jim Comey said was wrong. And he was overconfident So so Adam Schiff said Adam Schiff has said that. Oh we're going to hear from the whistle. We look forward to hearing from the whistle Adam. Schiff said we've had no contact with the whistleblower when in fact his office net with them. So now we're supposed to believe everything Adam Schiff says for you know ten and a half hours of a twenty one hour presentation. I think Mo- I think a lot of Americans okay we. We've we've had we've heard enough from Adam Schiff all right now. I want to go back to you. You have a voice and you're not a disinterested party you've I believe you've been over to the Senate a little bit to observe some of this So I wanNA give you a moment Let's say In Theory Mitt Romney Lisa Murkowski. Lamar Alexander and Susan. Collins are listening. Listen to this Friday morning because it'll be released nine. Am Friday morning here in Washington. That's before they'll be a debate on whether there will be depositions and documents and a big vote talk to them about why they should not vote for witnesses. Because it'll never end. As I said this argument I mean for them. They're like I'd like like to hear from John Bolton you're saying don't listen to John Bolton because they'll be somebody else this disattached is remember. It started it started in July of Twenty sixteen with the the the trump Russia investigation. This congress it started with the Michael Michael Cohen. The first announced witness of the diverse big hearing I announce witness Michael Cohen. That that was that was going to be then they were going to get him on. This emoluments issue then it was. Oh it was the White House security clearance issue there. We're going to go after Jared Nevada on the White House security thing then of course it was it was the Mueller investigation. And so it'll is never stop so depositions and documents is a rabbit hole the the whole thing is like it is never going to end. They announced impeachment. A nine of the skews me sixteen of the Judiciary Committee members voted to move forward with impeachment before the a phone call between president trump and presents. Wednesday ever happened. So this is this is the pattern is gonna go. Do you really want to continue to put our country through. What's now been four months months of an impeachment investigation? Do you really want to do in that do that knowing that it'll never be enough for these guys. There's always gonna be something else. Just look at what they've said and would vote for witnesses from anyone but Senate Republicans in particular be an act from your vantage point hostile to the constitution. I think it's I think it's it's it's something that just simply not warranted. They had an opportunity to call whatever witnesses they want. They got to pick all their witnesses. We've had zero so so now. If they go with Bolton as I said earlier the scores go from seventeen to zero to eighteen zero and my point is it will not stop there. Because I don't think it's ever going to change the outcome. The outcome come. We all know this president deserves to be acquitted. The facts are on his side. The constitution is on his side. If you're going to just keep prolong this. The Democrats are always going to want more..

"jim jordan" Discussed on The Takeout

"From CBS News. This is the takeout with Major Garrett. As I'm sure you've seen the presence own former chief of staff General Kelly Has stated that he believed on Bolton but more importantly he also recognizes the importance of calling John Bolton as a witness of swearing wearing him in of letting the senators from themselves That very relevant testimony. That's the voice of Adam. Schiff currently the House Intelligence Committee Maddie chairman. Our guest this week is Jim Jordan Republican from Ohio a frequent rhetorical combatant with Adam Schiff And I'd like to get your response. Congressman Jordan. What you just heard that was at a press conference that Adam Schiff and the other house managers have after the White House counsel concluded its opening statements in the impeachment trial? Now does he believe John. Bolton should testify but he quotes John Kelly former chief of staff to the president saying I believe John Bolton should testify. Yeah I mean look like I said before someone tells the New York Times what John Bolton's draftsmanship supposedly says and and we're supposed to stop the press to stop everything anything. He's gotta come test but I just don't buy it does John Kelly's voice mean anything to you in this manner. Not Really I mean look I think. The facts are so clearly on on the president's side if John Bolton testifies or doesn't testify is not going to change the fundamental fact shows before we went to break a chance articulate those from your point of view those these these four facts have not changed will not change. We'll never change at the at the We got the transcript of the call. Something the Democrats didn't think the president would do actually released a transcript. He released the transcript. You can see see clearly. There is no quid. Pro Quo outlined on the transcript. In fact second fact is that Ukraine is didn't even know aid was on hold eight had been paused for fifty five. They didn't even know that at the time of the phone call third both individuals on the call have repeatedly repeatedly said there was no pressure. There was no pushing there was no linkage linkage between release of the foreign assistance money and any type of announcement of an investigation by the Ukraines linkage whatsoever and the most important fact is tell me what the Ukrainians did tell me what action they took to get the aid released. Did they start an investigation. Did they promised to start an investigation. Did they announce they were going to do an investigation. It never ever happened. So those facts never change have never changed will never change regardless of what someone thinks. John Bolton's draft manuscript. Might say what what what. Yeah Mr Kelly thinks that Mr Bolton is saying that doesn't change those facts so the facts on the presence side the constitutional argument. Mr Dershowitz pointed out Mr Dershowitz even said let's this assume that that what what Mister said is is in the mainstream that actually happened. It's still not impeachable. And then of course you have the whole legal due process lack of due process argument him as well so those three arguments are so strong for the president. We know it's not going to change the outcome. He's going to be acquitted. which is the right decision? Let's get on with that. Let's get this done and get back to the the people's business so when you see John Bolton apparently wanting to testify he said so. There's manuscript suggest things that possibly could undercut the president's argument John Kelly agreeing with him saying I believe him. Is this a Kabbalah former people who work directly for the president teaming up against him and what do you think their motivations are. I mean these are people who worked for the president. He hired them. He worked on his behalf on behalf of this country and his agenda also fired him right. Is that what this is about. Who knows who knows who knows what? Mister Kelly's motivation is service to our country But the the question at hand right now is This impeachment process which is divided the country for four months this impeachment process which I think will never end. The Democrats have told us that Algorithm said the day before we started the markup in the judiciary committee eighty out green. Says if the Senate doesn't convict it will not end so they are out to get this president. They've been out to get him as I said before he was even elected and it will not stop but we just need to understand. Stand that so. Let's get this this crazy impeachment ridiculous ordeal over with and let's get focused on the things that we told the American people were going to do when Adam Schiff says And Chuck Schumer the Democratic leader in the Senate says John Bolton is willing to testify under oath and the president is not mick. Mulvaney is not and others we have subpoenaed or we'd like to disappeared from the administration. Won't that Oughta tell you something. He's willing to tell the truth under oath they're not willing to appear under oath therefore he's more believable than those who won't appear. How do you respond to the executive privilege issue? I mean this is this has long term implications has real implications for the country and the separation of powers the executive branch. What what do you think is the underlying danger? Well you you start you start saying that people have to testify who have Who who work closely with the president? So then you're going to. You're going to diminish the ability billy for the chief executive to have those candid conversations that need to take place between the president and his top advisers to get the policies done that. The American people elected a president to do when the when you boil this all down about the sixty three million Americans who voted for president trump to get the very kind of policies done that. He campaigned on when one of the things. I campaigned on was. He's not a big fan of foreign aid. He ran on that he also said look. Look we we know how corrupt Ukraine is. They're they're one of the young said one of the three most corrupt countries on the planet. And you had a new guy who gets elected. Oh in the third quarter Keith. Key factor is he wants our allies to help more. It's called the whole burden sharing thing. It may how many times does he mentioned Chancellor Merckel you need to do more Germany to help with with our allies in this area. So those were key things he ran on he was trying to implement those policies. He's especially in light of Zilinskiene the new guy he was the TV personnel the comedian who gets elected and he ran on anti corruption platform. Let's see if this guy's legit so for fifty five days. We checked him out. And guess what I'm convinced he's Legit I actually think he's a genuine reformer and so was the president because we had four key meetings between senior the US officials and presidents Alinsky. And you saw the Ukrainians the New People. His new party elected in their parliament. Begin to take the actions. They said they were going to do. So let me ask you about that that from a evidentiary point of view Several of your colleagues so I think you have very good working relationships. With Mike McCall. He has an office down the hall from Your Mac. Thornberry Those are significant voices within the house. Republican Party On matters of national security. Ron Johnson is senator from Wisconsin. You know him well. I think you may have worked with them in Just those three but there are others During this fifty five day period Had their staff contact people at the Office of Management and budget looking for explanations on the hold of the Military Assistance Congressionally appropriated signed by the president and yet in the evidentiary record. There's no mention in the the responses to these staffers. Working on behalf of these people you respect and work alongside about the two issues just identified burden-sharing and corruption. If those were the reasons seasons all along why couldn't those people working in co Co general collaboration with the president because they're Republicans. Get those answers. I mean if the answers were. We're so clear and vivid and explainable. Why didn't they ever get them? Well the the answers were spelled out in the call no no but but but but it in these e mail conversations conversations. They never got that explanation and it seems to me that would have been an easy explanation for the office of Management and budget or the Pentagon or someone to provide. They couldn't provide it so so it seems to me. They were uncertain why the aid was being upheld. Well we understand what was going on. So tightly held president that nobody else knew there was a government wide. Look at foreign aid. In general general there there was a there. Were studying but that could have been mentioned. Well it was mentioned when we when we deposed David Hale secretary at at Undersecretary the Department state he talked about the extensive study. They were doing in abroad since on foreign aid. So that was there. But the president mentioned on the call he mentions is concern about burdensharing he he brings up he brings up Chancellor Merckel to presence Alinsky and the second page of the call where present Linski talking about. We're GONNA drain the swamp here like you're doing in the United States. Wouldn't it be more believable from an evidentiary point of view. Wouldn't it more buttress. The president's argument if in these email conversations that staffers offers empowered by legitimate members of Congress asking a specific question about something. We have a long standing interest in the administration. Said you know what it's a review. It's a burden-sharing issue. And it's a corruption something. All these things seemed to me could have been communicated communicated rapidly and been consistent with this argument which Democrats say wasn't the real reason at all. It's a post post game rationale to obscure what this really was about which was about leverage to get political investigations. And the like but a couple of things that Norcem some key facts like the August thirty first phone. Call that Senator Johnson had with the president where the Senator Johnson says. Look we think we things Alinsky is worth the risk. We thanks very strong on that very strong and president getting the president's face a little bit and Senator Johnson was getting ready to travel to and has an important meeting Kalinski along with Democrat. Senator a Murphy But in that conversation the practices Ron. I think you're gonNA like our decision. So the president was already starting to become more convinced that you know what this this this Alinsky guy is a genuine. He's the real deal. He's Legit we're actually going to. The president was communicated that to senator after a pretty pretty good exchange. And what else did what else did. The president mentioned the Senator Johnson that call he says Ron Germany thinks we're smart because we're paying it all. They won't pay so he brought up the burden-sharing issue issue with Senator Johnson. Few days later Senator Johnson goes to the meeting and remember. This is in early. September when they're in Kief him and Senator Murphy and and the Ukrainians already know eight has been pause they never bring up if the fact that they have to announce an investigation to get the linkage. Never come if ever there was an opportunity. Four to come up. That would have been the moment because you had a bipartisan senators. Who are devoted to release the money? That was the moment and that they don't bring it up so this this idea the resolve this pressure for them to make an announcement. It just doesn't pan out the facts. Do Not Demonstrate. In fact they showed just the opposite. That's the voice of Jim Jordan. We're in his very quiet office here in the office building. We will continue our conversation about impeachment. It's been and other issues on.

"With your your host Mark Garrett and Adam Cole get it on got to get on get on welcome best hour or so in the universe girl and that's Mark Geragos over there mark. Where are you I did the Manhattan but would you listen to this? I'm going to be at the city of Hotlanta. It watching the Kapernick workout. I exactly what I'M GONNA do. I figured if there was ever any client that I wanna watch do something something. That's the one thing I WANNA do. Is that if you were would you now and why not I and also I think that it or you tell me. Is there a protocol in terms of. Let's say well capper nick through ten fifteen yard outs and out of the ten seven catches but is there protocol where you yeah but one guy dropped one so that should have in a catch or one ball thrown way over the guy's head and the guy made a one hander. That no one's ever GonNa make again do they. How do they tally it? But what I'm told by people with a lot. More experience in depth be is that they look for the quickness of release the at accuracy be able to lead. That's what they're you know. They they get the receivers. Depending on who the quarterback is when they're working obviously quarterbacks like to have receivers that they work with before guys that are pros. Ideally it's really a focus on the quarterback and they released ed conditioning and things of that nature. I was laughing. I watched Michael Strahan this morning on Good Morning America. Talking talking about it straight ahead would say without a doubt that tap should be Starting the League and say look at some of the guys pulled off the couch. Toronto Grocery store that could go play the NFL. Kurt Warner Ramos. Lay Out of a grocery store and you know it helps. It probably helps Mrs case that the third string Pittsburgh steelers quarterback. The other night just looked atrocious. I mean it has to it. It has to be great that if you you last. Professional football game was played on Thursday night. You're working out Saturday Saturday. And the last professional football game. That was played. The quarterback for the one team looked like he was in highschool. Yeah you by the way the the The quarterback who is cap is somebody. I'd say this all the time the last six years. How many quarterbacks awesome started in the Super Bowl? If you take Tom Brady out of the equation Get to Muslim to handle. So speaking of quarterbacks and steelers dealers getting banged on the head. Rudolf thinks his name and myles. Garrett what about the Gary had had some thoughts about the legalities of it you know there is precedent like. There're for instance there's a story that Marked you have never Heard but you you wouldn't enjoy your own sort of Dr Baden macab kind of way. There was a boxer. His name was the Harlem Hammer. He fought in a charity event. A nine eleven charity event. He was beaten pretty pretty soundly by his opponent in this event after the fight when they went to go oh announce the winner now. The gloves have been removed and and they walked to the center of the ring with the referee to hold one guy's hand over the other guy's hand he sucker punched the other fighter. He I think he broke. This guy's jaw now now a glove. Louis fighter hand still taped but no gloves he sucker punched a guy he injured the guy. James Butler the Harlem Hammer ended up going to rikers. He went to prison for months or four years months four months at rikers. So there's there's assault in a in a ring in a sporting event in event where they're punching each other as part of the sport but when you punch someone without the glove now outcomes assault he goes to jail or he goes to prison with without the without the gloves Ed. I'm sure that because there was a broken bone or a fracture that that played into it as well he goes to prison. He gets out of prison. He then then goes to stay with Max Kellerman boxing analyst Max Kellerman sports announcer maximum. He then goes to stay with his younger brother on his sofa of like his apartment. I guess he like as younger brother said like you can crash here or his brother covered boxing or something. Like whatever this man the Harlem Hammer then goes on to kill Max Kellerman younger brother with breath a hammer and then he was named the Harlem before he used the Hammer. Yes and a and K then heard this story as an well. I told the I know the stories you know and I know the stores as it didn't involve an arm arm. Oh and it wasn't if invoked Look I-i've Glendale he'll tell me every chapter and verse about the entire Zane In-koo family that everything but you don't care about the brothers. So he kills Kellerman Sam Kellerman. He kills them with a Hammer Hammer and the Harlem Hammer kills him with a hammer and this is all sort of unbeknownst to me but at the same time we're inviting Max Kellerman to the premiere of my boxing movie called the Hammer. Wow Wow oh wow now. That's a story now Kellerman. That's your Kellerman does come no he he. He was a gentleman but he he said like I just can't go brother just got killed by a guy called the hammer with a hammer and go to your movie called the Hammer. Boxing acting mummy. So I mean crazy crazy coincidence Gary everything you had there was spot on. Except you didn't mention the James Butler also set the house on fire after he had murdered him with the hammer really. Yeah evidently not the initial sucker punch mark was right. There was some significant damage. He dislocated his jaw and lacerated his tongue requiring twenty six stitches right so because the guy I had his mouthpiece out at that point. So there's precedent here mark for people bring brought up on a salt charges and going to prison in a sporting event. Evancho wasn't there a I WANNA say.

"News in the house as Kevin McCarthy is named as minority leader. He is now the top House Republican albeit in the minority in a vote of one fifty nine to forty three. So the congressman from California. Is he apparently from some of the reports one of the things that the president has apparently made clear to congressman McCarthy is that he wants Jim Jordan to be the top Republican in the judiciary committee Anat is that's one of the that's one of the things that's kind of as everyone sort of get settled in the house, and in the Senate that seems to be where things are falling. Welcome to the second hour of the program. I'm Dana lash that seems to be where everything is falling. So Kevin McCarthy is elected house minority leader by a vote of one fifty nine to forty three over congressman Jim Jordan who was running against him. And the president is from what has been reported is pushing to have Jim Jordan. As to have Jim Jordan in the on. The judiciary committee is the top Republican and the judiciary committee. So that'll be very interesting to see is. An and I think that the way that this has been characterized. So I look at this headline from politico past just media Savimbi such idiots. The headline is and it has three people Trump metals and McCarthy Jordan leadership role. Why don't know that it's ever been considered a brawl number one? Definitely I wanna talk a brawl. Let's talk about are. You have newly elected Representative Akashi Cortes who literally had a protest anything Pelosi's office. So if you want to have a discussion as to what is or is not a brawl all then there's your example. But the they what a lot of Trump's surrogates have been saying that they want to see Jim Jordan is the ranking member on the judiciary committee and McCarthy, though, doesn't really have that authority that goes back to the Republican steering committee. And apparently, they don't really like Jordan. So I don't know what that's gonna I don't know what that's gonna what that's going to do. But it. It should be very it's going to be interesting to see after everything is done in. Everyone is situated where people are ending up. So will say, but that is just the latest as all of these newly elected folks make their way in Washington DC and get on committees and get elected here and there, but so Kevin McCarthy will be the house minority leader. So he'll be up against Nancy Pelosi, both from California. It's kind of weird, isn't it? I'm aware both the majority and minority leader both got away from California, low weird isn't what it is is. I don't know. I just wonder if that I don't know it's it is a little kind of weird to me. I think I don't know. But but that is that is the latest as to what is happening right now with everything going on in the house. So we're follow. We're following the goofy. With CNN. Fox's also now signed on to blah, blah, blah. Jim. I'm already done talking about him. If I have to talk about him anymore. I'm gonna rip my hair out. I cannot stand this guy being constantly the news. I just can't. And then of course, you have senators who say, well, we gotta have investigations and Democrats in the house saying we gotta have investigations as though that's not what the hell you people been doing for the past two years. What have you been doing for the past two years for crying out loud? Even under the previous administration, y'all were doing this. And guess what no matter how badly you. Try to cheat. No matter how badly you. Lied to a FIS the court, no matter how badly you compromise people's fourth amendment rights and everything else you still could not come up with anything after two plus years of lying and cheating and dragging the bottom of the barrel to try to figure out something just something to come up with. And so far the only thing that they've done is be able to get what a couple people. Some technicalities. Are you actually are they going to actually do anything in the house? Are they going to actually try to pass anything? Or is it just? You know, is it just samil-sam. Oh. They're just not Trump. Anyway. I we're going to hear about that. So much one of the good things about I guess, you could say if you wanted to interpret it as such as Democrats controlling the house, and as people are going to get so aggravated they they're not gonna be able to they they're not gonna be able to wait to vote against these people coming up in two thousand twenty. So one of the I saw this the story and Tucker Carlson who I've known for years. He's got kids. Remember when we were talking about how that mob of people the smash racism people who apparently hate Hispanics when they went to his house and broke his door and did all of this stuff and freak out his wife who hidden the pantry. So they got kicked off Twitter after they organized on Twitter while now apparently they're back on Twitter the mob. They created a new account. It was smash raises NBC now, it's the same profile picture Saint people. It's just DC against racism now. So I don't know. I don't know what goes into making sure people can't reopen their accounts. But you know, maybe that one could be suspended. Also, I was also who was it porn lawyer. What's his face? Yes. Thank you. I only know his porn lawyer. I he's been trying so desperately to squirm back into the headlines. And there was that story where? The guy and this was over the weekend where Carlson was at Virginia's Farmington country club and his daughter. His teenage daughter went to the bathroom. And when she came back. Somebody said are you with Tucker are you sitting with Tucker Carlson, and she answered that's my dad and the man responded are you whore? And then called her a blinking. See you next Tuesday. And the daughter was all upset we talked about this once and then the son who is a student went into the bar to confront the man he followed and then apparently the sun through what wine in his face or something or water or something in his face and avenue was saying how dare you do this because he's a what was he? He's a gay Latino immigrant, and I don't know how many other boxes you can check. He's gay Latino immigrant who is allergic to gluten. Vegan vegan Latino gluten-free immigrant. What else is there? Something else. I can throw in there to make him seem super super victimized because he called an underage girl of CNN Tuesday. Which totally you know, is not like what a cross disgusting pervert would do at all. But and then apparently your e Tucker Carlson, poor lawyer suggested that he was supposed to know that the guy was a gay Latino immigrant who may or may not be vegan or gluten free or something. Whatever I don't know. Is there something else? Second. And I just think that the porn lawyer needs to be quiet because. The guys lucky. He did not get his backside warped. He's just like he he didn't get his backside. But I think it's hysterical. That will I can't believe that. You would how dare you do this? How dare you do this? Do this gay Latino immigrant vegan gluten free person? I feel like I need more things to check have you noticed that whenever somebody wants to be super victimized there. There's more. There are more qualifiers. Yeah. With allergies with cyanide as sinusitis. Yeah. I mean, just how how much can I go but the sun? Yeah. The sun apparently through glass of wine and the guy's face and porn lawyers. Like, I'm gonna come after you and your little dog too. And I don't know the guys just desperately grabbing for some sort of relevancy. I just he everything that man touched fell to crap and he wants to run for the White House porn lawyer wants to run for the White House is not what it was. Gross making disgusting awful again that would be his or more awful. I don't know that would be that would be his his slogan. So the. Yeah. I those people are the the mob is the mob is back. So they were back on social media. There are a lot of questions people are asking about social media, and whether what can be done to police them in what can be done to. I think that comes down to the tech people. They've I mean, the people who own the companies have to make sure that their services or something at are enjoyable to use if they want to main they wanna retain any kind of an audience or any kind of user base, but these pedia they gotta have their account suspended. Right. Quick. Right. Quick. So and speaking of the angry mob. I'm always amazed. Because I was having a genuine conversation are trying to, but nobody is interested in having a genuine conversation. I was talking about the latest development in the Jamal Roberson case, which we're gonna talk about here coming up, and it's amazing to me how nobody all these people who claim that they are so concerned about 'innocent life or they are they're so concerned about innocent alive for they want solutions. They're actually not interested in. In talking about solutions. They just want to be bought hats on social media and contribute further to incitement and divisiveness. I don't take for at all any of these individuals. I don't take them seriously at all because they are not interested in any kind of good faith conversation. So I I'll give you the latest update on that story coming up at the bottom of the hour because there are some developments in it. But you know, everybody nobody can have a legitimate conversation because everyone jerk reactions based on speculation. And I don't know. It's just amazing to me that people don't understand. That's not how the world should work. So we'll get into that as well here coming up, and then we got Florida man coming down the line, which.

"It was something that we would discuss on a regular basis mainly with nervous, banter locker room. Banter conversations in a locker room are a lot different than. Allegations of abuse are reported abuse to hold up hold up. So they basically told Jordan about the abuse and he didn't think it counted because they way on the locker room. Like, what is it with these guys in locker rooms. It just feels like nothing you say matters in there like, you know what I feel like I'm going to do. I'm just going to start carrying locker room around with me. Yeah, then I can say whatever I want. Let's be in the streets like the police and they'll be like, what did you say like locker room locker room. Believe it or not believe it or not. A lot of House Republicans are standing behind Jim Jordan. Maybe maybe it's because they've already seen much worse back in the two, thousands, a man named Dennis Hastert's was the Republican House speaker, and he later admitted to molesting children when he was a wrestling coach and he was convicted for paying hush money to cover it up. So at the very worst, Jim Jordan is an upgrade from that. And frankly, I think that's what he should run on. Dennis Hastert was an admitted pedophile. He abused multiple young boys and tried to hide his horrific actions with payoffs. Jim Jordan is only accused of enabling sexual abuse and the victims were children. He is the progress we need, Jim Jordan, not as bad as a pedophile. Right back. My guest tonight is a professor at Stanford University who served as u. s. ambassador to Russia under President Obama. His latest book is called from Cold War too hot piece, an American ambassador in Putin's. Russia, please welcome ambassador, Michael. McFaul..
