"The reputations of segregationist people who, if they had their way, I would literally not be standing here remember is I think it's just it's misinformed, and it's For that He's gonna have to make that decision. But, you know, let's be very clear. Senators that he is speaking with such adoration are individuals who made and built their reputation on segregation. Okay, So Yeah, that's who she was, and by the way, shouldn't stop there. When Kamala Harris was asked during this campaign was desperate to win, I mean, desperate to get any sort of traction at all. She had none. She was like wheels skating on ice throughout this campaign when she was asked about the accusers who came forward and said Joe Biden is weird and creepy and smells people's hair and and touches them in inappropriate ways. Commoners like I believe the accuser's so she's now running on the ticket with a with a with a guy who she literally called A quasi segregationist who sexually harasses women regularly, But don't worry. She loved him, and they are best friends. And also she's not an opportunist in anyway, She's just a deeply honest politician of conviction, being able to tell their story to do it. Do you need that vice presidential race is enough to make that decision for himself? Yeah, I wouldn't.

Fresh update on "joe biden" discussed on Bloomberg Daybreak Weekend
"I'm John Tucker in New York. Now, let's hit two R. Bloomberg 99 1 newsroom in Washington to see what items and Politics and government are said to top the agenda in the coming week ever that we bring in Bloomberg. Daybreak anchor Amy Morris, Amy All right, Thank you, John. The countdown to the 2020 election is no longer years, but months away and a countdown to the political conventions no longer weeks. But just days the Democratic National Convention kicking things off on Monday. How is this going to work? And how will the bite Inheres ticket be received? Bloomberg Politics Editor Kathleen Hunter joins me now, with more Kathleen. It is always a pleasure when I thank you for taking the time and we do want to start just with the big picture Joe Biden's choice of Kamala Harris as a running mate. Early polls are showing that voters really like this move, but she may also have some so called law and order type baggage. Tell us about that. Yeah, well, I think it's true that the election itself has injected some fresh energy on the Democratic side about this ticket. You know, there was a lot of energy around the idea of defeating Trump among Democrats, but I think there's some energy now around. The Biden Paris ticket, particularly among, you know, younger and potentially among minority voters. I think that you do raise a good issue, though, in that Harris background is, you know as a prosecutor, and then after that, it's the attorney general in California, and she had some pretty strong sort of bond order credentials in those roles in some of the stances that she took, and I think that You know, there's some concern out there that that could be a turnoff Tio tio those same types of voters that the ticket is trying to attract younger voters. Minority voters, particularly at a time like like now, when race issues as they pertain to the police are so much in the public eye, and I think that's the concern. Put side of that, though I would say that. Um Trump has obviously tried trying to appeal to white suburban voters by touting his own law and order credentials. Now, whether it works or not, is a separate question. But I do think that Harris having that on background By blunt somewhat be contrast that Trump's trying to draw aside there's sort of two sides that it's look at I'm curious about where the Bernie Sanderssupporters. Maybe in all of this is their support for Joe Biden ever a given? Well, I think it's not a given that's for sure. And I don't know that really the Harris pick Get the Biden ticket that much further towards getting support from the You know, Bernie Wing of the party in May, But again as we've been defecting, you know Harris is In terms of her stances in her background is more from kind of the centrist wing of the party, the same kind of wing Joe Biden himself hails from me. She's not really a progressive when you look at the totality of her record, and so I think that you know there is some question of whether or not This moves the ticket further in the direction of having support from progress in like Sanders, like Elizabeth Warren, like advanced Cognitive Cortes, Of course, all those people themselves is reporting the Biden parents ticket, but I think the question is whether their supporters are gonna feel energized and motivated to come out to the polls on election day. I think that you know the motivation factor maybe. For them or of anti trump factor than really being super excited about finding Harris. You know you bring up a good point. Let me ask you something about the Trump campaign response to the choice of Paris on the ticket because it didn't take very long for them to respond. The first response was calling the Biden Harris ticket. Super liberal, the most liberal, Ah, ticket we've seen in modern American history and then at the same time, saying that they're not even progressive enough to try to unite the party. It seems like they're at cross purposes in those messages. But I'm wondering what that tells you about the response from the Trump campaign. Well, I think that the main takeaway of the response in the Trump campaign is the sort of speed and aggressiveness with which the campaign has responded to the collection. I think that you know they came out even you know, just within the first 24 36 hours with a you know, ad attacking again by record on race and essentially trying to cast him and his past statements as Being racist and also pitting him again. Uh, comma Harris. They included some of the audio from one of the debates for Harris on Biden got into it over his record on segregation issues. And so I think that Certainly we've seen all along the trump campaign kind of running two parallel tracks. You know, we know that in African American areas, they're running running campaign as better along the lines of the ones I just described where, as you know, in white, more suburban areas, they're running as accusing the Biden and I'm sure now Harris being too middle, so this kind of been Um all along, having these two conflicting messages targeted at two different audiences. But I think the contradiction has been particularly stark and the cognitive dissonance over the key messages has been particularly stark in the last day or so. I would like to also get into how this convention is going to work, but sort of working my way into that. The speakers at the convention include the Obama's Jill Biden, the Clintons Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders will be speaking as well. The spectrum as as you were talking about of the Democratic Party ideology. Is that where they're going to try To unite the party and get everybody on the same day on same page or at least on board, too, If, if not get Biden into the White House get trump out of the White House, depending on what their priorities are. Absolutely. And I think that that you know in any in any election year. That's always a function of the convention. You know, they kind of obviously comes at the end of the primary season police elections primary season has been even longer. And just when it was this year on the Democratic side or on the Republican side on and so I think that that is always the function of a political convention. Are these recent times Get You know the different factions of the party? You know, it's not in complete agreement, you know, rallying around whoever it was. They ended up at the top of the ticket and at least Publically burying the hatchet. If there is any hatch very at that stage, so I think that's certainly what the what? As the lineup of speakers for next week's convention Wass devised. That certainly was something that Unsure Democrats National Party Democrats had in mind and that's why you know, we do see people like Bernie Sanders giving addresses and I think the hope is that you know when he goes out and gives Speech, you know, essentially talking to his supporters directly and encouraging them to come out and explaining to them probably why it makes sense for them to come out and vote for Joe Biden. I think the hope there's that you know if they're not motivated by buying them motivated by Sanders, Come to the polls. And as you say, you know, help Democrats get Trump at office.

The DNC and RNC are going virtual. What can we expect?
"So actually the coronavirus pandemic everything has gone virtual. We covered all digital conferences like Tho- launches, apples, WDC. In DNC are completely different animals Taco bell expecting to see well I. Think it's GonNa be a very, highly produced. Event just like it normally is but it's GonNa be really different because you know when they. When they usually do this, you've got like thousands of people in a huge arena you know you have people talking. And they're they're mostly talking to the to the people, the viewers and the audience. Sitting at home on their couches. Anyway. But you have that vibe you have that you know the people cheering it's it's like being in a live sporting event in a sense you know so like that's going to be lost a bit. Yeah. We've we've had instances with like the the NBA right they put up digital boards with with people that are virtually in I've watched the most games. It's definitely not. It doesn't really replicate the feeling of being at a game where the ambiance there I imagine a lot of the energy that would have been in those conferences have people been there. Is really kind of sucked away, right? Yeah and you know and that's really political conventions are basically like cheerleading events right? You know it's like the party faithful as there you've got these delegates from all around the country they're like really Gung Ho for their party and their candidate and they wanna like. You know just cheer their heads off and it's you know. So you know I think that energy is going to be a bit different but I'm also curious to see like what creative things they come up with right like like you mentioned the NBA thing like like are they going to do something like that? You know I mean? It'll be interesting to see how they approach it. Yeah. Have you got any kind of indication on on what they might do to create that excitement that is would be missing from having all those folks there. Yeah. So the the DNC they they have been, they've definitely said that they are going to try to involve people like regular everyday people. So I'm wondering if it is going to be something NBA like right where they have screens. Right there. But we'll definitely be having some like. Some people getting beamed in from all across the US whether it's you know. Politicians or or just SORTA your regular everyday folks who are like either live on video and a lot of like these pre produced videos people have been they've had this campaign where people are able to. Send in their videos like with prompts like I know Joe and talk about like why they're excited about Joe Biden and that kind of thing. So they're going to have that SORTA interspersed throughout the program. So it'll be interesting to see like how it all Kinda comes together. To DNC specifically, what what is that? GonNa look like will anyone actually be in Milwaukee? So there will probably be like a skeleton kind of crew in Milwaukee like I've heard that that Tom Perez, who's the chairman of the DNC was still planning to go to Milwaukee to gavel in the convention officially. But the big speakers you know like Joe Biden, who's the presumptive nominee he is not going to be there he's going to be somewhere in Delaware. Now, they've said he's not probably going to do it from his basement. So some place else in Delaware. In the Wilmington area where he lives. So that'll be interesting. I wonder how they they might dress up whatever venue he's in. You know like he was speaking with. Kamala Harris. You know the other day they've had actually a couple of speaking engagements and they've got the flags everywhere but like the backdrop didn't really look all that interesting to me. So it'll it'll I wonder how they're going to you know jazz it up so that it looks cool. How's the Brokaw can work? Yeah. So the roll call and by the way like I got to go to the convention in two, Thousand Sixteen, the roll call is pretty cool. Just in general when you're there in the room, there's like this vibe all the people stand up and they say, you know I'm from South Carolina and they were the whatever state and we pledge our ex delegates to. And so it's like an exciting moment. So it's going to be totally different this time 'cause they're all not going to be in the room but I you know they've said they're. GonNa. Kind of pop around all all the states and so you're probably going to have people from those states. Doing their call and I'm sure they're gonNA do something jazzy about like. You know I'm from Delaware. So it's like Delaware the first state in the nation. Allah. Probably say something like that I don't know. So it'll. We'll see. We'll see what about the NC I know there was a lot of back and forth about where was gonna be in whether it was go digital What is that GonNa was so that you know I think that's still to be determined right? Like they're still they haven't put out a whole lot of information about like what it's GonNa look like exactly. So I mean I want I wonder if some of this might change in the next week but. So far they are. Going to have a very reduced crowd in Charlotte. President trump will not be there to accept the nomination. In they're gonNa have like something like you know three hundred or so delegates there. So you know I don't know I don't know if they're going to try to do some things kind of like in in the arena although I think that would look pretty. bleak. If it's people, you know space really far apart. So I think that's still Kinda to be determined with what they're going to be doing it wear for folks who are watching these where can you check out the streams? So the DNC they've announced a whole bunch of places like you're gonna be able to stream, it live on youtube and facebook and twitter and And then the convention is officially you know airing from nine to eleven every night and all the broadcast channels will have it for the last hour. And and then they're gonNA have it on like TV and Roku and so they were going to be a lot of opportunities for people to stream it or. Even, to SORTA catch it on the networks got looking at some of the other challenges I mean we talked a little bit about the lack of energy. But what are the potential pitfalls who going virtual? Yeah. Well I mean we've all been watching. You know some of these cable news shows lately right like in sometimes you get like the guests who are like pixellated or their screen freezes. You know so I think that's going to be a challenge. You know you don't want somebody to be mid-sentence and all of a sudden they're face completely frees up. So that'll be a challenge. Yasser. Don't want it to look like a really boring call. With. With everybody with the bookcase in the background. So I think they'll have to figure out ways to to make it look interesting and you know. And not have any sort of technical glitches.

Trump weighs in on birther theory about Harris' eligibility to be VP
"Trump was a major force behind the Birther movement, claiming that President Barack Obama was not eligible to serve due to a racist conspiracy theory. That he was not born in the United States. Well, yesterday, Mr Trump cast similar doubt on Joe Biden's running mate, mate, Kamala Harris, who was black during a Corona virus briefing. He said he heard that the California born senator doesn't meet the requirements. Presidential candidate must be a natural born U. S. Citizen, a resident for 14 years and over 35 years old all requirements that Harris meets Justus. President Obama did CBS News Legal analyst Jonathan Turley says the Supreme Court precedent for this is more than a century old. Overwhelmingly, the courts take the view that if you're born within the United States, you are in fact a U. S citizen that has been challenged through history by both legislators and commentators, including some today, But the Supreme Court affirmed that people born in the United States are indeed natural born citizens in 18 98 in a case called the United States, versus Wong Kim, Ark. Well. Earlier this morning, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who's a trump ally, said that Kamala Harris quote is unequivocally and American citizen. Joe Biden's campaign is responding to the Birther issue, a Biden spokesman saying President Trump was the national leader of the racist Birther movement with respected President Obama, the spokesman saying. It's not surprised is the president tries to distract the American people from his Corona virus response that his campaign would resort to lies in their pathetic desperation.

"What's your take? This is obviously a big moment Joe Biden interest picked Kamala Harris. What are you feeling? What are you thinking? It's a very big moment. I've been excited ever since Vice President Biden committed to having a woman on the ticket. It's twenty twenty. So that would mean we went only have seen four women on a major presidential ticket. And in a year where we're celebrating the one hundred anniversary of the nineteenth amendment and women getting the right to vote. It was exciting for that reason but also for the fact that.

Efi weeks that grow some other black women and myself created the Hashtag win with black women and it wasn't response to the negative coverage. We not only saw about sooner Harris but all of the other women who were potential BP picks. Just how they were being absolutely torn apart. In the press, it was the exact same thing that we had seen. What? Secretary? Clinton. And we came together because we immediately wanted to call it out. We were going to say you are not about to do this. Again, you are not about to disqualify and be horrible to these women because of your issues with. And sexism and we wanted to stand with those women in particular black women who are being considered, and over the past few days we've seen more people put out statements about the media and how they need to make sure that they're not being racist and sexist in their coverage other organizations popcorn to get behind the woman vp whoever was going to be, and that was just really important. We knew that we needed to be ready and I'm seeing all of these women come together. But just in the past few hours from. Press interviews that I've done a panel that I've been on tweets and I'm seeing people already discrediting or Harris. One tweet a man stand. Oh, she should be or all that stuff without Franken happened because that opened up the seat the judiciary people got to see her through the cabinet hearing and that put her on the national stage and I'm like. Really. That's it. That's the reason. Why Kamla Is the. I in a press interview where someone said, well, black people don't like Homeland Harris. Black voters aren't behind her. NATO them tell me why black voters aren't behind her and said, well, I talked to a couple of young black women and they don't like her and they said so those couple of young black women represent every single black person in the united. States? Of America. Is that by people are not a monolith, black women are not a monolithic. So for you to make that statement is completely untrue and I just finished a panel. With a black Republican woman and she made the comment about how they just find it ridiculous that all of these black women are now supporting Kamla for vp that didn't support her for president. So how she qualified to be BP, she wasn't qualified to be president. And that one really got to me. And I had to let her know that when there's all these men who are running for president drop out and gets elected to the VP. We never say those things always say as great pit 'cause they have all this experience they're going to bring so much to their role are if Men is picked to be in the cabinet. That is awesome. So, why are we doing this Tacoma?

"It doesn't have shame and can say things without feeling that the need compelled to say sorry if they are wrong or if they hurt somebody so I wanted to really get philosophical which. We don't always have the chance and the time to do with presidential candidates get philosophical about the notion of apologizing. And how does the former vice president compete with somebody like the President? Here's what he said. No I'm never gonNA stooped to where he is. I'm not going to do what he does. He says so many outrageous things and To usually divide separate When I say something. That is understandably retrospect offensive to someone and legitimately offensive making. It look like take him granted. I Apologize I don't apologize for every mistake. I make a lot of them. Don't have any consequence. I mean the the point I was making is and I said this to his face like you say dumpings. Now we're all human. We all have the tendency to say things that we don't mean or regret Joe Biden as he says with a laugh the good news people know him. The bad news is people know him and this is one of the things that they know about him. And so this is the way that he has to navigate. This going forward is still a work in progress. It's pretty clear I've got to wonder if somehow authenticity is going to be an aid for Joe Biden and because you know throughout his life. We've been covering him now for decades. He's never been someone who's going to be as brash and unapologetic as Donald Trump. But the one thing that Donald Trump also is is completely authentically himself or this persona at least that he's developed for himself that he feels completely comfortable in and so it'll be interesting to see if Joe Biden's own authenticity. Which as you say you know. There are a lot of mistakes. There is a lot of fumbling if that will actually help him in that But I want to quickly turn to vice president stuff because this is the fun stuff that everyone wants to talk about and talked to Biden about this. You asked him if you commit to picking a woman of color..

I think. Wide Ladies Dome. That's what I'd say. Well, you know the end you know I've I say that I think that Black the black people that are really into it like that and make think that he owes black people, something and all of that. From Black America and because they know that we as black people are the vote democratically and we're going to put him in office. Those are the ones that are mad I want. My bigger issue is getting donald trump out now whether that's with a black woman or with a white woman I want Donald Trump out. Some people think. Camps since a black person picked him, he should pick somebody exactly Alabama pick by. Well, we come back I WANNA I. WanNa say something about this state.

What do you mean? We Ain't black now? Come on, man come. He shouldn't have said it. He apologized. How many times has donald trump says something with no apologies. He and he never will. He's not that guy because he doesn't care how you feel on think he only cares about himself. is so that right? There is a huge difference between him and Joe Biden and Democrats, man we sit on TV, and we try to play this self, righteous thing and doll him for saying this. We are better get on his doll trump for what he said they caused. The Republicans are not going to do it. If you cut on Fox Donald Trump can do no wrong now. If, you're thinking that if Joe Biden picks a black woman for VP, then that'll mean that black people are thinking that. What's the Black Agenda? Let me for want everybody about something. You cannot run for the presidency of the United States with a black agenda. They are not going to allow that because you are the president of the United States of Obama to enter that you. You talked about coming here some specifically for black people. You'll get ran about a here. And why folks not going to accept that and black folks ain't going to believe so. I I think they will the fact that they elected president twice I think America would accept A. Vice President that's just my thinking. Talking. who were critical of Obama because he didn't have more of a specific lack agenda? Jay I was just saying that I don't think you can expect him to pick that. Because DNA, it'll show black agenda. I think the problem that this is what I'm afraid of in this country, we because of the election of Donald Trump because of the potential re-election of Donald Trump with all that he's done. That's so not representative of what you want as a leader of this country. That how many followers he really have if I think. That outlook, a vote for scholley will in a heartbeat. But I'm afraid that White America will run from a black woman because let me tell you why I'm saying that. Because are going to be Oh, no, not before one of us. And, then you're going to get a black woman and white men I just don't know how they vote for have her run. Our country because there is steel. Steel sexism in the mind of men. And you and you throw sexism, and you put any form of racism a million. Probably Divide. Do I think them sisters do a great job. I think. He saw on TV. With List Yell. Him Girls. Be Bad with it. I just don't think Morocco. We'll do it, but if they get on this ticket, the Steve Harvey Morning Show go push like Champs oh absolutely. But a lot of people said that about Obama was about. America read, it would be a big help to his running for president in terms of the black vote. The black if I think he put himself in a corner by saying that now. By thing would have been better because now we're all in disciplining is going to be black is going to be. Why isn't GonNa Hispanic is going to be older. It's GONNA be. Said Joe. Athletics.

Personally I would say hey I just want you to know that this actually happened to me with him and do we not care about the years of demonstrated evidence of him behaving inappropriately like is that not a party value anymore and I just felt like I wanted to get it off my chest like I just wanted people to know and at the same time I knew that I couldn't keep telling that story to individuals over and over and over again and that ultimately I had to make the decision. Do I speak publicly or forever. Hold your peace and I felt like that was the decision that if I did not speak at that moment that there was not going to be another time for it so I decided to just clear my conscience and get it off my chest and and speak about it and hopefully have folks treat that behavior seriously. M people did for a little bit until of course his defenders came out and started to mischaracterize what I had said questioning my motives and then Joe Biden himself took it with a modem of seriousness in decided he was going to start making fun about it the entire campaign trail. What do you mean making fun about it? It was only about? I think a week or two afterwards that he started making jokes.

Floors was getting attacked by Particularly some high profile commentators show called the view which is kind of a popular daytime. Show over here She came out said look. I was former staffer for Joe by us to do that to me. A meeting would run his fingers through my hair struck a neck. And so you know. I believe Lucy floors. I think that you know what she's saying is true. And this is back in two thousand nine hundred and that was that was the extent of what Tari came forward with that is that is basically the extent of what she came. Forward with Biden issued kind of blanket. General apology to all women get ever touched in an uncomfortable way. Kind of apologized for his over. Familiarity is his lack of respect for personal space and he moved on from there. I hear they're saying I understand it and much more mindful. That's my responsibility responsibility. And I'll I'll always believe governing quite frankly life for that matter is about connecting the people that will change but I will be more mindful respectful people's personal space and that's a good thing..

"They are about not getting a progressive agenda or having a revolution. So does that those are the women. If you just look to Michigan. Right now that you're starting to see coalesce around Biden. There is still some sanders support there but it is. It is really falls to assume that just because she falls further on the Progressive Horizon. Right you know towards towards Bernie Sanders. People are going to go to Bernie Sanders false false impression to do that. By the way you know besides all of this kind of Animus may have built built up between Warren and Bernie or the spores. Let's think about this. You Know Elizabeth. Warren was famous for having a plan for everything. I have a plan for that on the fighter. Well Bernie can't tell us how he's going to pay for most of his things that probably doesn't appeal to Elizabeth Warren. She had a plan for everything she liked to know how things were going to get done real actual plans but okay aside from all that. I WanNa talk for a minute about what? I'm seeing happened now. Now I mentioned earlier that Bernie Sanders. Supporters can be assholes online. And I just want to say that I apologize for that being the case it is the case it is true and it really really starting to. Piss me off why I don't care that you don't like Joe Biden. That's fine. That's totally fine from your candidate. I'm not here to tell you to stop supporting Bernie but do it by promoting Bernie. You don't need to degrade the other candidates. You don't need to bully their supporters. People don't like that and it's not going to bode. Well if and win Bernie ever gets nominated for something important. Be It the presidency or anything else where you need a bigger coalition than just the Bros. It matters and by the way it enrages me that I'm seeing this again. This happened in two thousand sixteen. How in the world? How in the world did we not learn our lesson by the way before I even launched into this tirade? I just WanNa make it clear if you disagree if you want to. Chime in on this you can tweet at us. We are at next best radio. That's at next radio or if you're really feeling like you WANNA go all out in right more than one hundred forty characters more than something. You'd feel comfortable posting on facebook while you can always be Afrita. Send US An e mail. We are at next best thing at radio. Free Brooklyn Dot. Org Okay so in my experience I just Wanna I just want to read to you guys. Some of the things. I've seen posted on social media mainly facebook within the past five to six days. Now keep in mind. All of these are things that were posted by people. I know and in some cases people. I'm close friends with. Here's the first one quote. So what is it that encapsulates Biden's campaign that we can all get behind because honestly it feels like people are pushing for him because he was Obama's VP and he's not Bernie. Is that going to be enough to inspire people to come out and vote for him and beat number forty five. I mean I'm just not buying it now. What I honestly wanted to say to that. Well Not GonNa get into that you know. It feels like people are pushing for him because he was Obama's EP and he's not Bernie Really Obama's VP not Bernie. That's awfully reductive. Don't you think good? God I mean Joe Biden was in public service for thirty nine years thirty nine years before ever being tapped by Obama for VP. For years on City Council thirty five years as the senator from Vermont. It's reductive of his career in public service. It's also really productive of the over six million people who just voted for him. This was posted by a friend of mine after Super Tuesday. To Act like people voted for him just because he's Alabama's VP. That's really reductive and belittling. And that's why I mean that is a perfect example of an annoying thing for Bernie supporters to say and think now obviously the people who voted for him. They saw something that they liked. They like him something that appealed to them or at the very least got them to vote for Joe Biden. You know maybe maybe it was the simple fact that they thought he could beat trump. He was our best shot at beating. Trump. Or get this. Maybe they like him. Maybe they're inspired by him. And they like him. I don't know why we are all acting like this is some kind of villain here for fucks. Sake. I mean come on. Joe Biden is a good compassionate man and no one not Bernie Elizabeth Warren Andrew Gang. Anyone other than Donald Trump has ever said anything bad about him. Frankly I mean do they have disagreements when it comes to policy implementation and lots of of course but frankly I would argue. They have far fewer differences in that regard than most Bernie supporters seem to think. Here's another post quote. Sanders has to go on the offensive hitting Joe hard on trade social security the Crime Bill Wall Street Bailout Bankruptcy Bill Doma Iraq war and repealing Glass Steagle. Buying Likely Stumble over himself. Having to speak for fifty minutes of a two hour debate. Sanders has to talk about unity. If he regains the front runner status especially. That's what moderates went to hear all. Okay let's break this down. There's a lot to unpack here. He needs to go on the offensive hit Biden on well. Let's see the crime. Bill Bernie can't attack by on the Crime Bill and I hope you know why if not I'll tell. Ya Bernie voted for the crime. Bill Guy DEMOC TO ATTACK BIDEN FOR. It would be absurd and stupid. It would be absurd and stupid. We're GONNA talk more about that in a minute now. I have no doubt. He'll attack him for the Iraq war but frankly this argument is going a little tired to say. The least I mean Bernie has mentioned the fact that he didn't vote for Iraq as difference between him and other candidates. Probably eight thousand times since two thousand fifteen. Now I'm not saying it's meaningless but honestly at this point who is that going to sway. Who doesn't know that someone who just decides to tune into politics after not caring for five years? Maybe but I don't think they're that many of those people doma that stands for the defense of marriage. Act Now that's pretty much a moot point because most people who pay attention know that Joe Biden came out as being pro gay marriage before Obama did in fact many have said that he forced Obama's hand on the issue because he said publicly in an interview that he was for it and he thought it should be legalized. Okay so let's be real here now. Let's talk for just a minute about the whole idea. He says here in this Post Biden will stumble over himself during a one on one to our debate. Folks folks folks folks. If you really think that Biden's going to do worse in a one on one debate where he actually has time to respond to questions and flesh out his thoughts and ideas then. He did in those speed round debates with twelve people on stage. You're kidding yourself. Go back and watch some highlights from his two thousand twelve debate with Paul Ryan. Paul Ryan is twenty seven years younger than Joe Biden. He's known as a policy wonk and a deficit Hawk regardless Joe Biden made him look like a clueless fool. He wiped the floor with Paul Ryan. Now that was eight years ago. Sure and Biden may not be as sharp as it used to be but I hardly think he'll be the gaffe prone out of out of sorts guy that we saw at times in the early debates where he had twenty seconds to explain himself on deep important detailed stuff and he was being attacked from all angles by all people. I don't think he'll be quite as out of sorts. And in case you won't go back and listen to that debate. I WANNA play a little bit for you. Here he is. This is in two thousand twelve when he was debating Paul Ryan so we'll both of you level with the American people. Can you get unemployment to under six percent? And how long will it take? How long take we can and we will get it under six percent. Let's look at. Let's take a look at the facts. Let's look at where we came to office. The economy was in freefall. We had the great recession hit. Nine million people lost their job. One point seven one point six trillion dollars in wealth lost in equity in your homes and retirement counts for the middle class. We knew we had act for the middle class. We immediately went out and rescued General Motors. We went ahead and made sure that we cut taxes for middle class and in addition to that when that when that occurred. What DID ROMNEY DO? Romney said no let the Detroit go bankrupt. We moved in and helped people refinance. Their Homes Governor Romney. No let foreclosures hit the bottom. But it shouldn't be surprising for a guy who says forty seven percent of the American people are unwilling to take responsibility for lies. My friend recently in a speech in Washington said thirty percent of the American people are takers. These people are my mom and dad. The people I grew up with my neighbors they pay more effective tax than governor. Romney pays in his federal income tax. They are elderly. People who in fact are living off a social security there veterans and people fighting in Afghanistan. Right now who are quote not paying any taxes? I've had it up to here with this notion that forty seven percent. It's about time they take some responsibility here and instead of signing pledges to Grover Norquist's not to ask the wealthiest among us to contribute to bring back the middle class. They should be signing a pledge saying to the middle class. We're going level the playing field. We're going to give you a fair shot again. We are going to not repeat the mistakes we made in the past by having a different set of rules for Wall Street and Main Street. Making sure that we continue to hemorrhage these tax cuts for the super wealthy. They're pushing the continuation of a tax cut that will give additional five hundred billion dollars in tax cuts to a hundred and twenty thousand families and they're holding hostage the middle class tax cut. Because they say we won't pass we won't continue the middle class tax cut unless you give the tax cut for the super wealthy. It's about time they take some responsibility. Mr Ryan Join. I are from similar towns. He's from Scranton Pennsylvania. I'm from changeless Kansin employment rate in straightness. Today I sure do ten percent. Yeah it was the day you guys came in eight point five percent. That's how it's going all around America. Look you don't read. This looks like it's going to minute. Answer look all right. I don't WanNA play. I mean. That's a long clip. I played but did you hear how decisive how responsive how declarative and how frankly confident and assured he sounds when he has one person to to and he's prepared he he knows what the talking points are going to be. I don't think you can count on. Joe Biden being out of sorts and stumbling over.

"Again. It was at the Hamptons summer gala held by the Greek Orthodox Church surely heard regardless. We were both there and get this. I'd actually seen Joe Biden there before maybe three or four years ago and frankly he was gregarious energetic almost operatic in his speech patterns but this last time I saw him which was just a few months ago he was looked. Kind of slow muted. I mean people could hardly hear him even with a Mike which has never been a problem for Joe Biden and honestly it did worry me and it kind of it made me kind of sad and it did affect my view on him as a candidate but regardless that all changed last. Tuesday that all change. How did it chain? Why did it change? Well let's talk about it. So before. The voting ensued on Super Tuesday. Virtually all polls and news outlets agreed that even the best case scenarios for Biden would have likely ended up with him trailing Bernie Sanders in the overall delegate count even if at the end of the day he was trailing Bernie by fifty seventy may be even one hundred delegates that still would have been considered a good night for Biden. Well folks all I said as I sit here ladies and Gentlemen Joe Biden Leads Bernie Sanders by a total of ninety one delegates ninety one. That is not a small number now. How is that possible? How could that be? They said the best case scenario was well. Frankly four Joe Biden. A miracle took place. Biden collected a bonanza of important endorsements two Saturdays ago after a landslide victory in South Carolina. Pete Buddha judge he dropped out. I like two days before Super Tuesday. Which really bothered me. He had been my candidate. I still think he would have been great. Then Amy Klobuchar dropped out in both endorsed Biden. Then on Super Tuesday Joe Biden went out and won ten of fourteen states. I won't say that again. Ten out of fourteen.

"He has built and how strong it's going to be. I think that's basically right. I think in the East there still is the dynamic of Sanders versus all the moderates and the very fact that there is a realistic chance that Bernie Sanders can win. States like Virginia and North Carolina is a testament to just how fragmented the moderate vote has been for most of this race and it is entirely plausible that from start to finish on Super Tuesday Bernie Sanders dominates from coast to coast that. Moderate voters in the east are split between Biden and Bloomberg and moderate voters in the West are split between them as well and bring sanders by varying margins with coalitions from twenty-five percent of the vote to forty percent of the vote just dominates the night that is a real possibility it is also a possibility that sanders is gonna find that having a hardcore base that makes up about a quarter of the democratic vote in a lot of these more moderate and diverse states is actually not enough to win in a scenario where somebody most likely. Joe Biden has emerged as a standard bearer for folk closer to the political medal. That's interesting so the version of this Alexander's essentially walks away with the nomination after Super Tuesday is the version of this or the question facing voters of Biden versus Bloomberg actually cost both by name. Bloomberg the win in the East and south by splitting the vote the version of this where. It's much less clear. And there's really no clear winner coming out of this is if Biden managed to pull together the moderate vote in those places. I think that's right. I think we should think about Super Tuesday. In terms of sort of two big questions. The first is does Bernie Sanders become a dominant front runner. Does he manage to just roll over the divided moderate wing of the Democratic Party and run up the kind of delegate lead that would make him a prohibitive favorite to go into the Milwaukee Convention with a wide lead in the delegate count. If that happens then everybody else in this race including Joe Biden is going to need to really assess what kind of path forward they think they have. And whether it's really worth waging a fifty state war against sanders in order to try to take away the at a convention where Sanders will enter as the clear leader if the answer that question is no if Bernie Sanders is not an overwhelming favourite. After Super Tuesday. Then I think the second question is is Joe Biden the clear runner-up or the clear alternative to Bernie Sanders. Because that is what has eluded Biden and every other moderate candidate in this race. So far is a moment of clarity that signals to the entire country. This is a two person race between a left wing candidate and me Biden hopes that South Carolina has set that process. In motion it needs to come to fruition. In very very short order on Super Tuesday and then from there this narrows to a Biden Sanders race and then the campaign moves places like Michigan and Arizona and Georgia and Florida. That will really test the medal of these two guys as head to head candidates in states that are super important in a general election..

"Joe Biden had long supported the Hyde Amendment Matt. And you know it's interesting. He really evolved over the years on reproductive rights by the point that he jumped into the twenty twenty race. I think you could pretty safely say that he was it's pretty pro-choice like he was supporting most of the pro choice. Policies that the other Democrats in the race were supporting hoarding. However the Hyde Amendment was the one big exception to that He still supported hide. That was up until this sort of fateful incident. Last summer you're I think it's probably faded from a lot of people's memories but there is a sort of crazy couple of days where Joe Biden was in an event in South Carolina and and this woman walked up to him and she was a volunteer with the ACLU. And she says Mr Vice President. Would you commit to abolishing the Hyde amendment. And he's you can see video of this exchange online. He's looking her right in the eye. He says clear as day. Yes saying yes he would into the Hyde Amendment and so that was pretty stunning and of course immediately the headlines everywhere like wow Joe Biden. He's changed his position on hide. That's incredible but as soon as his campaign saw those headlines. They slammed on the brakes. And they're like wait. No just kidding. He still supports the Hyde amendment so there was sort of caught off guard there. I'm by by that point. There was really no going back. I mean he just looked so out of step with the rest of the party hardy and there was so much pressure on him and so pretty quickly he sort of looked around at the race and he said okay you know yes. If I'm elected president I will fight fight to get rid of hide but you can kind of see how. It's hard to feel like he's completely committed to that since he sort of stumbled into that position. So I think there's a lot of questions for voters about how committed he really is and we should add the context that the vice president has been In favor of the Heideman due to his Catholic faith in that account that has also led him to this evolution that you're describing around reproductive rights. You know I think he. He has grappled with this personally a lot because of his faith and you know he might not be in favor of abortion personally like he might not. Yeah so many Catholics at lutely Americans really probably slightly But he you know again except for the Hyde amendment. He had pretty much. Come around on most pro-choice issues. What did you think of his answers to you during the interview right so on hide in particular his answer wasn't great? It was pretty confusing was us. He's going to do very confused about you. Know what the effect of hide was. He does seem confused about and it's interesting because he's talked about this and other venues news. This wasn't the first time. But basically he's been making the case that as president part of his platform is to expand Medicare and Medicaid access. Right and his argument is okay. Well because so many more people are going to be getting Medicaid. That's why the Hyde Amendment would no longer work because so many women wouldn't be able to get insurance coverage coverage for an abortion Through those plans under hide but the thing is that argument doesn't make a lot of sense because of course it's already the case there are millions of women around the country who can't get abortion access through Medicaid so. It's a little hard to understand. Why that policy he would have been okay up until last summer Right but then it would become untenable. He seemed to be arguing. That in the past there are these other places that women particularly poor women could go in order to get abortion access. Places like planned parenthood but but under the trump administration many of those places have struggled with funding and that now that those places are going away it's more and more important that Medicaid exist As one way one means of paying for abortion access it was very confused. I agree with you and I I felt that He was tying himself in knots To explain more from our deliberations after a quick break to kill a mocking bird is unmissable and unforgettable. Raves Rolling Stone Five Stars The New York Times declared it a critic's pick calling Aaron Sorkin new play beautiful elegiac satisfying satisfying even exhilarating A.. MOCKINGBIRD for our moment sixty minutes says it's the most successful American play in Broadway history. A New York magazine calls. Is it a real phenomenon. Ed Harris Atticus Finch in Harper Lee's to kill a mockingbird directed by Bartlett Sher tickets at telecharge dot com Welcome back to Detroit for too long I would like to I would like to reinforcement Alexander. my my expectations for him were profoundly shape but the news coverage which seems to have many many valleys in rhetorical glitches. That didn't show up here. I mean he seemed to be an he did seem to get Campaigning his heart. But he just seem we get sort of sort of stronger more more emotional as he went on even if he blew off some questions like lar. It's not just the news coverage we've all seen on the debate stage state struggling to answer questions and fading as the debate goes on and we've seen it more than once. So I'm I agree. As performance. Today was very impressive. Does it completely set aside. My concerns earns about his ability to run a strong race. No I guess. Piracy was not unimpressive by. I don't know if I'd call it imprecise. Still he put aside my worst concerns about him and he spoke fluidly for was not not as bad and I agree. I think there's a there might be a little grading on a curve here. Her expectations were outside of his reproductive. Healthcare answers. What were your impressions of Vice President? Biden's interview with US any other surprises. Yeah I mean look. I'm being a a little tough on the vice president here on this issue But you know I did understand after that meeting why a lot of voters do connect with him you know he. He can be a very charismatic guy. He has a pretty amazing history and resume and all of that came through and our meeting. You know on the other hand I think we also saw that he can be a bit rambling He has his famous Joe Biden verbal tics. which which can be sort of charming but also frustrating yeah? I was particularly impressed with his answers on foreign policy. There were not a lot of candidates who articulated the sense of. They've been in the room that they've had to make decisions like that in the past that they understood understood what the stakes were and that they knew how to act quickly He also talked a little bit about the need to surround himself with good people which is is something that other candidates didn't really address? But I agree with you. I felt Ike. A lot of his answers were pretty rambling There it's it's amazing to read the transcript because in entertaining those transcripts. We found ourselves having to explain that the vice president was being a little sloppy be in his speech and in the room. You knew exactly what he was talking about. But as you read the transcript. There's often places where you have. No idea what he's actually referring to. Yeah I agree with all Alabama. I found interesting just on the priority levels and maybe I'm wrong about this but isn't he only one who's really said. This is all about beating trump. Uh this is about getting excising this guy from our politics and our Harris. That was one of our brains as well struck out will right. I'm just talking about in our interviews that he's not even he's not even getting filibuster right defeating trump because I jang four more years. We'll be a disaster right. He's the only one who made it the centerpiece of his his which is not talking about come on directly the vice president has really focused on beating Donald Trump as the center selling point for his his campaign. Why aren't you satisfied with message shore so I just happen to think that beating trump isn't enough? Trump trump is a symptom of a bigger issue. That I think has been happening in the Republican Party for a long time and Personally suddenly as a voter when I look at the slate of candidates I want something to vote for such an uninspiring argument. Just in general the lake. There's this there's this moment comment. That feels very urgent and necessary. And it's just like let's just like you know. Put a warm body that a lot of people can agree on their like surround around him with people. I it's just I don't know it just I just. We had a lot of people. Come in that chair with really interesting ideas and here actually like a lot of ideas and so if you are running on this I don't know there's something to me as somebody who like has a lot of strong with you seen so far. I think we can talk about that tomorrow I think so. That concludes our candidate interviews. You may have noticed be included a full transcript of the interview with Senator Senator Cory Booker on the New York Times website. Mr Booker dropped out of the race weeks. Before his episode was slated to air in the name of transparency. We wanted to share the transcripts of that interview. Are you for those interested in what Mr Booker had to say. We may be done with the candidates. But there's still a lot more to talk about tune in tomorrow to hear the board's final deliberations members battle it Out on behalf of their favorite candidates. You'll also hear our official choice for the twenty twenty Democratic primary. Thanks for listening.

If you haven't heard the interview go back and listen to that first joining me today to talk about Mr Biden's visit and reproductive. Healthcare Gender in the twenty twenty election is board member Lauren Kelly. I'm Lorraine Kelly I cover women in reproductive rates for the the editorial board. I listen to the reaction after the vitamin interview. I was looking for the candidate. That's been sort of trade in the media's like you know now author not with it or lost a considerable amount or sort of discombobulated or something but he didn't strike angry really comforted by the Joe Biden that showed up. There was pretty much on his game. I thought he was on. He didn't wander he didn't ramble wasn't like he's he's all their yeah works. It was the second half when he started talking about foreign policy particularly he. He's head and shoulders above the rest on foreign policy. Absolutely agree with them or not. I the he's he's you know. He's an incredibly impressive skill. compassionate You know talented retail tale politician and you can understand why he has had such staying power. I guess the question is just whether and this it goes to what we didn't really get to but is it enough for the moment. Is it enough politically. Is it enough to save the middle class. Does he understand he understands. I think that the political and moral crisis but does he does he really understand kind of the world that so many any of us are living in I think the the what we didn't we didn't get to kind of follow up on on the millennial issue do but I mean. Does he understand the anger. One thing I was would have liked to follow up. He said at the beginning you know he's taken more incoming incoming fire in this campaign than anybody. He hasn't seen the beginning of it. He's got a fifty year record and wait till he goes up against trump and three hundred million dollars of Republican up a research. I think both of the questions I asked him his answers. Were frankly nonsense on both of them. His hide answer makes no sense at all. I believe him I think he. He accused us of ageism. And say like you know. Yeah I mean it just I mean I absolutely Louis have profound concerns about seventy seven. No no I absolutely think it's right to be very concerned about someone who's pushing eighty two years old running the largest country in the world the most powerful country agent whatever. You know what I'm saying. I'm concern about Bernie Sanders. I'm concerned I'm not. But what's the big deal baby. Nobody is fair to raised. These seventy seven seventy eight year olds are the healthiest most most fit most cognitively seventy seven seventy eight year olds with ever lived on the planet planet. My father is about to turn eighty. He's an he's got all his faculties with him. I would never want my father to run the country. And he's he looked tie yes he looked better than and then like a old man but he he looked he looked tired. He looked like someone and this is nothing compared to running the free world. Like it's just. I'm really concerned concern that the Democrats are putting their chips in the basket of of nearly eight year olds can be Joe Biden. I'm not right right. That's that's that's your pitch. This is the Party of the future and your pitches. I'm not GonNa die like you know. I thought the more he talked to better. I mean his this handicap and the debates was the thirty minute bite here when he could tell his long story. Which I presume you can do better right? There was a little of that like when you bring up the Obama Administration whenever you get when you get in a corner not the president and the other parts of it where it's like. Well look what we did. He wanted to play. I had presidential power. I'm not the president in politicians the pilot. Thanks for joining us. Sure so before we get into the interview with. Can you lay out for us. The current status of reproductive productive rights in the United States. And help us understand what's at stake in this election. Yeah this is precarious moment for reproductive rates. it's probably the most precarious moment since Roe anyway was decided in nineteen seventy-three You know over the years rose been chipped away. I there's been a whole heap of antiabortion bills around around the country and then that's been happening. There's been this pipeline of conservative judges who are hostile to abortion who have been sort of fostered by antiabortion advocates so when trump won the election then when Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement of course he had been kind of swing justice on the Supreme Court. it sort of became clear that those conservatives were really going to finally trying to accomplish their goal which is of course ending legal abortion access in America how has reproductive rights. Come into play in the twenty twenty race so far yes oh so far. Trump has really tried to set the terms of this debate. AM He keeps using rhetoric talking about infanticide conflicting abortion with murdering babies He especially says this when the topic of later abortions comes up you know of course later abortions have been rarely They generally happen when something has gone. Terribly terribly and tragically wrong and a pregnancy But he has really tried to who back Democrats into a corner to having to answer for again. What he he calls infanticide? Incorrectly Biden has some baggage around reproductive rights. What were your concerns going into this interview rate so probably his biggest baggage relates to the Hyde amendment? How do we focus on high? I can explain high place you first of all. Everybody voted for high. Every single person running it but they all this idea. This is such a principle thing. Well it's principled. I mean most of the party has been in favor of overturning. I yeah I understand that. I understand the question directly. I thought that when there were reasonable alternatives and funding mechanisms that did not deny women the opportunity to take advantage of their constitutional right under Roe. V Wade is amended by casing that in fact it was. Okay you and the vice president kind of get into it over the head amendment. Can you explain what that is in a nutshell. The Hyde Amendment is a federal statute that dates back to nineteen seventy six. And it says that Federal Medicaid dollars cannot be used to pay for abortions except in a few narrow circumstances and of of course who relies on Medicaid poor women so that explains why in America today it is so much harder for a woman without resources or without insurance coverage through work to get an abortion whereas a woman who has more resources. It's much easier for her to get the exact same procedure again. It's been around since one thousand nine hundred seventy six. Basically almost immediately after Roe v Wade was decided. And you know of course that made abortion legal across the country then the Hyde amendment came along long just a few years later and made abortion inaccessible to millions of those women so really stifles the effect of Roe v Wade Henry Hyde. Reid was a Republican Congressman from Illinois And he really made clear what this was about on Hausler during debate at the time he said quote quote. I would certainly like to prevent if I could legally anybody from having an abortion a rich woman a middle class woman or a poor woman unfortunately fortunately he said the only vehicle available is the Medicaid bill so basically poor woman it was And that's what we have today. An actually almost every congress person ends up voting in favor of the Hyde amendment because it is part of a budget bill but vice president biden has been then vocal in his support of the Hyde amendment in the past correct. That's right so it's really hard to get rid of the Hyde amendment because it is in that federal spending bill will And you know it's really unappealing situation to be faced with either going to bat to fight the Hyde Amendment or You know if you do that you're going to face a government shutdown So there's always so much to sort of bicker about in the federal spending bill and sort of every year that this comes up. It's it's a problem for Democrats and they just have not been able to figure out how to strip hide from the spending bill but your rate.

We make fifteen percent of the world's economy there's another forty five percent that our allies that we have dissed already they're wondering who the hell where we are. I would try to put together a coalition and I wouldn't fact make it clear what I said to him and my private meat is been public. We're a Pacific power. He said why. Do you say that I said because we are Pacific power and you would have never had the economic stability you were able to accomplish but for the fact we we. The United States kept the peace. I would make it very clear. There are going to be a price to pay in terms of economy and in terms of the access to other opportunities to China. Badly needs. Look we always talk about China and is an eight hundred pound gorilla. What they're doing China has more problems than we could ever contemplate? They don't have enough water. They're talking about close to a trillion dollar project. Did you to turn rivers around forty percent to forty five percent of the land is blue with cadmium they cannot produce crops. They are out now deciding that they're in a position where they have a million dollars in essentially jail reeducation camps in the West. They're in a situation where they're having trouble figuring out. How do they hold on? LET'S DEBATE NERI without getting into conflict with India. They have a lot of problems a lot of problems. We should be clear that we're not GONNA do anything to accommodate what they're doing and make it much more difficult for them to engage in how they proceed. It requires diplomacy requires a show of our resolve that this is where where it stops and it raises a big question about what to do after that. We'll see what happens. Some of said that a move like that against Hong Kong would also threaten Taiwan on east. DC Why do I absolutely do think he could and I think it will do the opposite on Taiwan. I think the Taiwanese government will move to try to be more combative. Uh with China than it was before. Because that's all he talked to me about. I've spent more time. Allegedly with Xi Jinping than any world leader has before we left office just because the president wanted me to get to know him he was the vice. President I was vice. President wasn't appropriate the president so tell me the State Department I twenty five hours a private dinners with him. He's not a stupid foul but he also they're not a democratic small deep bone in his body and ask questions like you really control your military. Do you hitting controlling military. The President's Party control military. Do you really do governors have any power. They don't let me power. That's why they're an axiom big chunks. They have no independent authority. Do anything what is your national security. What's the National Security Council? Do Minh these are the questions. Shoot Joe Biden has been a vocal opponent to facebook and their resistance to fact check ads. He himself has been the victim of false ads on the social network mark as we grow in further on his approach to dealing with big tech. You'll hear Mr Biden. Refer to section two thirty of the Communications Decency Act Section two thirties a law that axes the limited liability shield that Internet platforms like facebook. Have benefited from since Nineteen ninety-six. October here campaign sent a letter to facebook regarding an ad. The falsely claimed that you'd blackmailed Ukrainian officials and not investigate your son. I'm curious did that experience dealing with facebook and their power. Our did that change the way that you see the power of tech platforms right now. I've never been a fan of facebook as you probably know. I've never been a big Zuckerberg Fan. I think he's a real problem. He knows better. And you know from my perspective. I've been in the view that not only we should be worried about the concentration of power are we should be worrying about the lack of privacy and then being exempt which you're not exempt. You can't write something you know to be false and being exempt from being sued. But he can't the idea that's Tech Company is section two thirty should be revoked immediately should be revoked number one for for Zuckerberg and other platforms have pretty foundational love of the modern. That's right exactly right and it should be revoked. It should be revoked because it is not merely an internet company. It is propagating falsehoods. They know to be false and we should be setting standards not unlike the Europeans doing relative to privacy. You guys still have editors I'm sitting with them not a joke. There is no editorial impact at all on facebook. None none whatsoever. It's irresponsible. Aw It's totally irresponsible. If there's proven harm that that facebook has done should someone like Mark Zuckerberg be submitted to criminal penalties. Perhaps he should be submitted to civil liability in his company to civilize. Billy just like you would be here at the New York Times whether where he engaged in something that amount to collusion that in fact caused harm that would in fact be equal to a criminal offence. That's a different issue. That's possible that's possible. Could Happen Zuckerberg finally took down those ads. That Russia was running. All those botts about me. They're no longer being run. He's getting paid a lot of money to put him up. I learned three things number. One footing done mommy to be president number. Two Kim Jong Il thinks I should be beaten to death like a rabid dog and three this president United States is spending millions of dollars to try to keep me from being the nominee.

"joe biden" Discussed on The Choice
"Each episode. You'll hear Democratic presidential candidates. Make their pitch as they interview for the biggest job of their career every election year. The board chooses a candidate after closed-door off the record interviews and a lot of internal debate but the stakes are so high twenty twenty and we think voters deserve to hear how we decided on our as the best candidate to Donald Trump. So we're giving you access to these conversations and the debates that followed so you can make the choice for yourself to learn more about how the board works and WHO's on it. Go back and listen to episode of this series. We've trimmed each of these interviews down but if you'd like to read the full transcript you can find them on NY TIMES DOT COM backslash endorsement. That's endorsements an our last interview was the current front runner who undoubtedly has the most name recognition former vice president. Joe Biden big moment here for vice president former Vice President Joe Biden. He just released that announcement when making it official saying he is running for President Delaware elected Joe Biden. It's senator at just twenty. Nine years old he was immediately tapped as promising White House material pundits mapped out the earliest presidential election. He'd be eligible to run in vice president. Biden's first attempt at the White House was in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight when he ran to be the youngest this president since John F. Kennedy at forty five years old but his campaign flamed out fast when he was found to be plagiarizing political speeches. This time around. He's campaigning to be the oldest president. In American history. Running on his six terms of Senator in eight years as Barack Obama's vice president previous presidential campaigns aside Mr Biden has had had one of the most decorated political careers of anyone in the field as chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee. He played major roles in the contentious Supreme Court. Nominations of Robert Bork. And Clarence Earns Thomas in the Nineteen Ninety S. He helped write and pass. The Violence Against Women Act the first legislation of its kind to put federal resources towards combating domestic and sexual violence. But Mr Biden also wrote and passed the tough on crime laws that have contributed to our era of mass incarceration. He's since walked back his stance and called the crime. Bill quote A big mistake in more recent years however Mr Biden played an active role in the passage of the affordable. Care Act during his time as vice president and like Senator Amy Klobuchar and Peop- Buddha judge edge. Mr Biden is more centrist option in the party advocating for civility in politics and getting things done through a bipartisan strategy. His twenty twenty campaign has had a number of stumbles along the way but many were glass. Voters see him as one of their own we wanted to dig deeper into Mr Biden's policies and some moments on the campaign trail that have given US pause. We apologized for the audio being rough at times we recorded in a glass room overlooking the beautiful Port Authority. Bus Terminal using wireless mics that are great for television but not ideal for podcasting uh-huh and heads up at a few points out the interview. You'll hear a cell phone alert. Go off as Mr Biden has some difficulty. Silencing he had with him semester vice president. We're hoping to ask you a few questions that we haven't really heard you answer on the campaign trail yet. Mister Vice President Why don't you support reparations? As for Black Americans do support reparation black Americans and the best way to get reparations for black Americans and systemic segregation and it's real and it's genuine. I spent my whole career. Doing the first thing I did. As a young councilman lawyer was to fight redlining. And so I think that the reparations argument and debate is worth people investigated in it. But how do you make a judgment in the meantime. There's a lot we have to do right now. Now to deal with the original sin of America which is slavery and so. I think it's much more productive to move quickly on everything from access to education to loans on why in God's name is a situation where you can own a home exact same home on one side of the street which is predominantly black and. You're on the exact home across the street was predominantly weight and your home when we values less than your insurance costs more. It's wrong there's a a whole range of things we can do legislatively now to deal with this stomach. Racism still exists. You said during the September debate when asked about reparation that black parents prince should among other things. Make sure that you have the record player on at night. House specifically should the country confront. Its history of slavery discrimination and Klunder black-americans taking that out of context. But that's okay actually. It wasn't out of context. Okay the idea is that responsibility rests on those who are still engaging oppression to stop what they're doing and pay for what they've done if it's criminal criminal and if it's not criminal pay for it economically and change the law. I remember how much trouble brock cut in. When he said that the parents black parents should take responsibility? That wasn't my. That wasn't my point. My point was to make it clear that there are a number of things. We can do now now to help. Parents who have been disadvantaged as a consequence of lack of opportunity to be able to provide more guidance nsen better guidance from themselves in their families. For example we have One school psychologists for every fifteen hundred seven kids in public schools. It's ridiculous Nicholas. Is there anything that you have changed your mind about related. I would say to your record where you're thinking your personal views on race or for busing or anything over the years on race or Bussey because you know. I think you've all been kind of shocked. How much black support I have and I've never urban shamed of anything I've done? I've fought for the African American community and fought for them. I tire career. I made a big mistake and the criminal justice US decide when I it's easy to forget it now but you know all of a sudden crack was introduced as a great threat to the United States of America and you had medical medical folks that will crack go straight to the brain is going to have this long-term effect so we bought onto the idea. That crack somehow should be punished. Much much more significantly than in fact powder cocaine. Well what it meant was somebody snorting powder in the part of you guys go to. I don't mean you got to me but wealthy neighborhoods if they were to get arrested which they don't in the first place but very get arrested they get a sense of one hundred times less than someone is getting convicted for crack and so from the time we passed that two years after I've been trying to change it and do it brock and I got what a down to a ten to one from one hundred to one. It should be zero but it's had a disproportionate impact on minority communities particularly African American communities. I sorely regret that and we've also learned a lot more about drug abuse overall. We used to deal with it in terms of we thought that men laws was a product of drug. Doug abuse it's the reverse mental illness is the reason for drug abuse. One of the things I had wanted to ask you about. Was You've called for rescheduling marijuana so that scientists can better study. It's therapeutic potential. Virtually all of your opponent's have gone further and actually called for full legalization at the federal level. Can you make the case to me for wide to take more moderate approach. When when it's I think science matters I mean one of the reasons I'm running against the guy running against is you know? Science matters not fiction. When I'm arguing is there have been studies showing that it complicates other problems if you already have a problem with certain drugs and so we should you just studying and decriminalize it but study it and find out? Get the medical community to come up with a final definitive answer as to whether or not it does is causing a does cause other problems then make it clear to people. So that's a place you don't engage in the use of it but many states have already legalized. I get that. But that doesn't mean the sciences. It shouldn't be looked at couldn't you promote the science and legalize it at the federal level in tandem. No why would you promote the science. If the science would say we'd be bad idea to legalize it got to find out the facts first but let me get some straight here. I've argued for some time. Total decriminalization anyone who has a record it should be immediately expunged so when you come to work for New York Times. They ask if you have any problems. You don't any criminal arrest you don't have. I have to say yes because it will be completely expunged it and anyone who is in fact has been serving any time in prison or is in prison or Supreme people are these days is that they immediately be released and the record totally expunge a as the second oldest Democratic candidate. Mr Biden has highlighted some of the generational national gaps in his ability to relate to younger. Voters like millennials. He's even got as far as to say. He had no empathy for their generation's problems. Mounting student loan debt naturally we asked asked him to put that in context. You've expressed very little interest in entertaining. millennials concerns and complaints about the problems that they face whether it's student debts. Well you have said I have no empathy for its. Give me a break in terms of like things that they've been concerned about with the way in which the older generations have more or less made things worse for them as generation. So do you think that millennials have less of a burden. It's a straight okay. When I said I had? No sympathy about was made a commencement speech. I don't know which was either Yale or Harvard than back to back. Two years and the study came out showing that although there was the most generous most progressive most involved generation ration- history the best educated which I pay tribute to because I have three granddaughters are all part of that in. My daughter is a social worker. The master's degree doing great work etcetera. Cetera it also said something like only sixteen percent of young millennials would in fact run for public office so I was at a university and they I said well why should we get involved all dirty so I want to hear it. Don't wind me. I got the same lecture in one thousand nine hundred seventy you too. When I was in the middle of the Vietnam War where I got? The same thing was told in one thousand nine hundred sixty five when I got involved the civil rights movement. I don't get involved but you gotta get ball. Some could argue that. You're sort of painting a broad. Brush of the millennials. You have the I was answering questions. The question was why. Why should I get involved? I said because it's your responsibility. You have a responsibility. So do you think that This younger generation as a whole is not participating enough and they don't have the same burdens as previous generations. Know what's happening is awaken. The the point I always make is if in fact the generation between eighteen and thirty voting the same percents above thirty there would have been five point two million more votes cast last year. And we wouldn't have this president we have we wouldn't have it. They sat home then getting ball. And I hi come from you. Don't say well that's your choice. That's okay don't lecture me on responsibility. Not You don't have in lecture me on responsibility and did not participate when I got involved it was like dropout goad haight. Asbury don't get involved literally across the board you don't trust anybody over thirty and all of a sudden got so damn bad. A generation set.
"joe biden" Discussed on CNN's The Daily DC
"And then at one point Biden, grabs one of the kids shoulders and says, I got permission to do this to joke the same joke, and so in people laughed in the room as that joke was made but outside the room, it of got a bit of a different reaction Twitter lit up, and you and I had been talking for the last several days like what is he going to do with this appearance on Friday is he going to address these remarks at all he just going to let that be the video that he posted earlier in the week to deal with the allegations of that had been made. And this was just going to be a standard speech. And it was it was a surprise to me that he even went there in any way whatsoever. Because I would have thought he would thought this isn't the. Venue for that I handled that I think sufficiently enough to get me through these this next period. But no, he actually he brought this up. Obviously didn't go the way you and he said Twitter lit up. So then what happened? So he made that off the cuff comment, and then some reporters had gathered outside the hotel just in case, he decided to come out and talk to us. We had no heads up, and suddenly we see him walk out the door and walk straight to reporters. And just off the top say, look, I didn't mean for it to come out the way that it did that I wasn't trying to make light of people's feelings. So it was very clear that he or maybe his team got the message immediately that outside of that room. People weren't finding this funny as they briefed him. They said you're gonna have to clean this up something to that effect. I would imagine. And yet or let this is now this is what fascinates me so much about this moment for Joe Biden, even as he's trying to clean up something that wasn't received in you know, in the way that he wanted to be received. And that I think I heard saying that guy. He wasn't joking. It wasn't a joke to him. Right. Like that was just him trying to deal with the new reality. And informing everyone that he did indeed get permission to have a physical interaction with the kid with the union trying to make a point that he has these kinds of interactions so often that he's on a campaign trail and someone will come up to him. And and we'll they'll maybe give him a hug, he'll give them a hug, they'll give him a handshake. He was trying to reinforce that. This is this is what happens with Joe Biden. And that maybe it was interpreted as a joke. Maybe people didn't like the way that it came out. But he didn't mean anything by it and get as he's trying to say, no, no, I get it. I I need to adjust some of my behaviors he also seemed to be delivering a message that this is who he is. And that he he doesn't want to change the human empathy piece of the Biden portfolio if you will which is a. Big part of his public persona. So while he wants to say, I'm learning, and I get it. He also wants it seems to me he wanted a little bit of both ways. Which is. Yes, these women should express what they're expressing their voices. Need to be heard. I will listen I get this. There are new rules that play. And yet this is what has happened my whole life. This is how we interacted with in politics. He it seemed to me he was trying to have it both ways at the same time. Right. It's gonna be a really difficult line for him to walk because he is trying to be respectful of women, and maybe even men who don't feel comfortable in their encounters with him. But this is who he is. He's been doing this for over forty years. And so that's going to be interesting to watch to see how he changes that. Someone did ask him is going to impact how you act on the campaign trail going forward. And he said, yes and said that that's fine that it's a good thing. And that's maybe things need to change. But in practice, I'm interested to see how this all. Actually plays out one of the reasons why say he's maybe trying to have it. Both ways is not the right way to say this..
