What was your order? What did you get? Well, the guy, I just remember him. I remember the guy was rubbing his hands all of us stick with him. He had extra fat. I don't think I had any of those potatoes, but just the steak was great. Happy birthday, John Kelly. And his wife, John Kelly. Same birthday. Yeah. What is that often? Large, how funny was he yesterday? We were getting tossed around that tube. I wanted to talk about that. It was you, me and Trent. And we're just kind of holding on for dear life. First time tubing together, getting whipped around this Lake. You survive a couple of these waves together and everyone's like laughing and screaming. But you're also looking around that moment. Looking around getting worse around here. Yeah, it's getting worse, and then there's just these moments where we'd hit like, boom. Boom, and then you survive and you're like, woohoo. And you look to the right and Trent's gone. He's gone gone. And you don't know when we lost him. You don't know what bump it was. You don't know where he is in the Lake. But you know that we lost one of our guys. And he's given up. He's been tossed. Oh, do you guys? I feel like I'm having a heart attack. I can't even laugh. It's right here in my shoulder blade. You're giving a big stretch. It's right there in my shoulder blade. Shoulder blade's not back here. In the heart. What do you plan to stretch or do anything? It's right here. He was gone. Dude, there was one rolling out of my fucking. So I started on the left side, and we lost him, and I didn't know when we lost him.

And at my hip kind of hits you a little bit, but I just felt you slide away and I was just like, you're just eating Lake water. Frankie looks at me 'cause the boat slows down. Swing around and pick you up and he's like, just look over and he's gone.

"Yeah, but he's just such a jethro. He just such a New York hillbilly like, hey, man, I'm gonna make paper airplanes and send messages to girls. That's a long time adviser says he describes Trump as a pack rat and a hoarder. I can't say what went wrong that resulted in some boxes ending up at Mar-a-Lago, he said, but you can see that as an extension of four years of accommodating the president, because no one would say no to him, that that's illegal, right? Trump sometimes asked to keep material. Oh, John Bolton said he sometimes has to keep material after intelligence briefings with no clear pattern as to what he wanted. Sometimes Bolton said he would ask the president to give the documents back. It was very erratic. John Kelly said Trump rejected the presidential records act entirely. He said many people would regularly say to him we have to capture these things. Two Trump advisers said he took our aids had aids take all the documents he wanted to his private dining room or the residency's documents were not usually closely tracked. One of these people said the former officials said some classified documents and the resident were visible to anybody who was passing by. Aids found other ways to circumvent Trump's sticky fingers as one put it. White House staffers retrieved from the residents documents that Trump had torn into pieces, several people singled out Mark Meadows. Oh, there's that name again. As incapable of telling the president, no, the usual packing process that occurs during a presidential transition was delayed because Trump would not concede that he lost and he didn't want to move out of The White House. Oh my God, he was having a tantrum, right? So that was the other thing that exacerbated this. He just seems like he's falling orders post phone call. He was what you do with documents. You take them to a place that's very very secure. Very very secure. Well, no one would expect. I took them to Mar-a-Lago. Oh, you idiot just do it. I just, okay, so we don't know what, yes. Oh, we have to run to Santa's in the boots with the Dallas cheerleaders who also wear white boots. We can not get off the white boots. I apologize. Let's go. Let's go. Boots are made for goose stepping. And that's just what it'll do. Okay, Paul and Sarah toga, hello, Paul. Good morning, mama moocs and Carlos. This is a big thrill for me.

The Man Who Saved the Abraham Accords
"Jared Kushner, I want to cover a lot with you. I want to cover winning the election. Steve Bannon, John Kelly. I want to talk about the first step. The Abraham accords the wall. A couple of Ivanka issues and then losing, but let me start with Yusuf all the time. I know you. And I am not surprised to find him centrally located because the op-ed you describe it page three 90. It's a big, it's a big play by yousef to stop an annexation. It also made possible the Abraham accords that granular detail in here is just remarkable, but that op-ed very few people know about that. So first of all, use of as a giant and I saw in Washington there are different kind of ambassadors, some of them were there just to try to show cocktail to do cocktail parties. Yusuf was one of the most effective thoughtful just great people who I encountered who really understood how Washington worked and how to be constructive. I mean, his country, the United Arab Emirates, is one of the great allies of America. They fought with us in 6 wars. They were the first Muslim country after America went into Afghanistan to say we don't want this to be perceived as a war of the west against Islam. So we're going to join because this is a war of like minded nations against radical extremism and terrorism. And so they've been a great ally to America and Yusef has really been instrumental in building that. But with regards to the Abraham accords, they would not have happened without him. He was an essential player.

"To the election, I'd say prior to when he became the nominee. It was all like, no, Biden's never going to be the nominee. Fighting cat went, I wrote a piece on why you couldn't win. Nobody thought he was going to win. And then all of a sudden, he was like, the only person who could be Trump, like for real. And then he beats Trump. And then of course it goes back down to, let's speed up. Let's speed up Brandon. You know, let's go. And now, as we're approaching the selection, it's all of a sudden, it's turning again. It's like turning in the favor of Democrats. I mean, I can't necessarily speak to Biden, but I think that I'm hoping that that's what's going to go down. If he really wanted to do a baller move, he would have a giant banner behind him and says, let's go Brandon. When he signs the inflation. Yes. Meanwhile, this is even not the crime stack can really this would just be the awful Trump stack that we were inundated with every day. Which book is this from? Trump tried to keep wounded bets out of his grand July parade back in 2018 because he thought the optics would be bad for him. He told John Kelly. Look, I don't want any wounded guys in the parade. This doesn't look good for me. Kelly was a gas given his own son had been killed in combat in Afghanistan. And he said to Trump, those are the heroes in our society, there's only one group of people who are more heroic than they are, and they are buried over in Arlington. Trump said, I don't want them. It doesn't look good for me. Okay, wait, but wait, there's more, Kimberly. This is from actually an article in the New York of what the book size articles in the New York. Oh, okay. So

Levi & Jennie Lusko Explain How They Found Their Way to Montana
"So let me take you to a moment in your marriage. I think it was fairly early on when you had this crisis of vocation, maybe if I could call it that the vocation of location, your successful pastor, John Kelly. Yeah, Dr. Seuss, I've read a few of those. But then they were stripped away. Too soon. Too soon. But your pastor in California, you're thriving there. You're very successful. And you bump into somebody who says, hey, you might want to think about coming to Montana or Idaho. Montana, yeah. Yeah, we felt like California made sense for us. You know, all our lives, I actually grew up in Colorado, raised in New Mexico, Jenny from California. We ended up in Orange County. And we were just a mile away from the beach, you know, a couple thousand people in the church we were teaching at, it felt like it all roads had led to that moment. Season passes to Disneyland, you know. It's where God wanted you. It felt right, honestly. And at that point, there came this incredible, ridiculous idea. Go to Montana and start a church. Now, we're not ranchers, you know, I don't look like Kevin Costner. You know, I just don't, it doesn't, it didn't make sense to us. And yet we couldn't, you know, when you know God speaking to you and it almost irritates you because you just know he is and you almost wish you could pretend you didn't hear him. We felt like we needed to move to Montana and started church, which didn't make sense.

much We appreciate that as always Or earlier this morning doctor Bhakti and Saudi from Johns Hopkins University chatto with John Kelly and Matt Talking about this new omicron variant the efficacy of vaccines hospitalizations and what we can expect going forward Take a listen Felt like a kick in the gut to be honest right I mean you problem was that the CDC media release that was released December 23rd was targeted towards healthcare workers And they would be fine from a science perspective right Because we think the incubation period and the viral application cycle is lower But this idea that because your healthcare worker needed to support the response we're going to decrease your isolation time Was released challenging The fact is I may be a healthcare worker but I'm also a mom a daughter I have other people who are likely in my household They're going to be sick with COVID that I need to look after Also when I don't feel good and I've been through COVID which is extremely terrifying And varies in how it responds to individuals I may not be ready to come to work And I think healthcare workers are also humans So you know as you can talk to me man tonight but I work most have not responded well to that press release Based on a scientific perspective I think we're still trying to work out viral replication We need more data But it seems that individuals are more likely to be asymptomatic and the incubation period is smaller Doctor Yates do you think the data backs it up yes or no I think the data does that get up Okay so that's a good step forward How close are we to treating this as if it's any normal seasonal virus Do you think we are taking a step towards that That is the $1 million question I don't think we're there yet When you talk about this thing oh this virus is endemic right That means it's predictable The impact on the health system is manageable and that the replicate for every person acted one other person is transmitted to We're not bad yet The virus is evolving People are still being hospitalized People are still dying from COVID I also worry that when we think of us as a seasonal virus or rub it off as mild then we'll become complacent I don't think we have room for that You know I can understand perfectly doctor your emotional response to the reduction in the suggested days It depends on whether you're looking at this as an economist who wants the wheels to start turning in business to get back to normal Then you're like oh great 5 days is better But if you're looking at it as a human who is experiencing disease and it's taken an emotional toll you don't necessarily want to go directly back to work in 5 days regardless of what your job is right So I just want to say I feel you on that A 100% In terms of the hospitalizations I know a lot of people are showing up in emergency rooms and hospitals who don't need to be there And that we can say should be discouraged here on internationally broadcast television But it doesn't seem like a people who are severe enough back to the hospital as much as delta or alpha have Is that the case So there's two questions here Is a independently less virulent than its predecessors Alpha and delta And the challenge in really answering that question clearly is that the population right now is different to the population that was inflicted with Delta People that are getting sick are a younger less like to have comorbidities and there's a higher proportion of individuals who are vaccinated who are getting a secondary infection However yes when you look at the actual number of hospitalizations right now per 100,000 that is way lower than what we saw with Delta and the number of deaths are similarly as low Well but obviously if more people are getting infected then that will bring the numbers higher just by pure math doctor How quickly do you think that this could spread through enough of the population that hospitals could become entirely overrun Well right now I'm sitting here in Bethesda Maryland I work at Johns Hopkins hospital in Baltimore and we are entirely overrun Several hospitals in the DMV area have just declared a disaster Declaration which means that we have had to suspend regular operations I was telling you know folks yesterday I worked to clinical shift I was not mentally working as much marijuana They offered my kiddos And I was called in because we were so overwhelmed with a number of patients and our waiting room that we need extra stuff to come in I am trying to sort out those who are sick opposed to those who can go home and wait for that test results Well doctor batra and sadi from Johns Hopkins University we've been so fortunate critic to have the experts from Johns Hopkins and other leading universities around the country giving us their informed opinion during the entire course of this pandemic And I know a lot of people are fatigued with the pandemic as most of us are and want to move on in one of you the omicron variant is something that can just be dealt with and lived with But boy for the healthcare community it is still a staggering challenge And we just heard from doctor Hanson Johns Hopkins.
Will We Be Able to Trust Trump's Personnel in 2024?
"Had traitorous literally traitorous seditionists in the building at ranks above. My rank was a deputy to the president. We had chiefs of staff like john kelly. It's it's disgusting that he was a marine. But we have people like john. Kelly vincent and others who are actively sabotaging president trump. It is my contention and we're not going to mention names. Hits a little bit too early for that that president trump is already surrounded or still surrounded by some of the wrong people who gave him bad advice and are just there for the money and selfish reasons during the last four years talk to our millions of listeners. Liz what can we do about that in. A how confident are you that we will have a trust worthy america first bench if we can stop the fraud and he wins again and he gets a second term so i think he openly admits the when he's asked you know what's the best thing you did was the worst and he says personnel some not very. Yeah and i think in i think he he knows that and There were some good ones too though. We gotta remember that. But for the record the fact that he achieved what he adjacent with members of his cabinet working against him. Truly i mean you know you you you thank the good lord every night but we can't do that again this right and honestly so some of these people though you at least they had me fooled some of these people swamp i mean it you had no idea and the one good thing. There's not many the silver lining about what happened in. November is kind of a dividing and people came out of the woodwork. Yeah really exposed people's true colors and what they actually believe and if they don't actually believe in it so i think that's benefit shaw. And now we can. Just ask be point late.

"Need first of all to understand what we're going to do with them. Perhaps there's not a robust concept of operations available unless you have that concept of operations. Somebody was john kelly was talking about. He's the air combat command chief. That kind of really doesn't form the requirements and the acquisition strategy and all these things and so they want to get that in place before they move too far too much further down the road. But that's not to say. I mean i think they're still going forward with with arrow early operational capability for arrows in twelve months. Follow by hypersonic attack cruise missile in twenty twenty seven or so. I don't see them necessarily slowing by. They wanna get their ducks in a row. Where i think kindles approach will specifically affect things on. Abm as brian was talking about is the on ramp events that we saw stage by you know under the regime of we'll roper. In the previous day was the whole idea was. Let's bring the technologies. Let's see what works. Let's see what doesn't and but there was no real plan to transition those technologies. It was sort of if we can get if we can show that this is valuable than a program office will pick it up. And they'll ask for the funding for it but there was that wasn't there was no prior understanding that that would happen and i think that's the kind of thing that they're probably not going to do now. The way kindle talked about it sounds more like if you're going to prototype demonstration you know if it works. There's going to be a plan before the demonstration to get into a program and get a feel that with the whole doctrine operations logistics planning and all that and that may slow down thing some in in a way however. If if you don't have all those those things they tend to get messy anyway also aligns with some things that have been hearing from people about the budget it. You're going to look for a program if if you're not sure whether it's real as a technology program look for the dollars dot mil. Pf like if there's a tale then then you'll see it and otherwise it makes us be on paper. We're talking about dumb talking about the statement part of the training infrastructure. All of that being put into place now sometimes you know the emphasis on that can lead to paralysis and the acquisition process. That really. They went when it's so hard to get away from an in the last administration because they felt like that things just removing way too slow. And i know that nobody wants to go back to that but to try to you know be at least be more mindful and bring that more into the process and not have it completely ignored. I think that. I mean it. Certainly in terms of advanced bell management system..

"Position and the guy who came out of practice spring practices ranked number. One was nicholas straw. He is a six foot. Two two hundred thirty pound junior from lebanon ohio and he did get quite a bit of time on the field. Last year he played nine games and started seven of them. He recorded forty tackles including a career high ten versus army. He also filled in at linebacker for thomas atelli early on when to tell you getting over his knee injury from the previous year and in watching some videos on straw. There's a couple of things that actually one specific thing that jumped out at me and that was he is really quick to the ball Last year he had one sack and had three and a half tackles for loss. And that's the kind of play that coach newbury needs from that raider position. Somebody who can create a little bit of havoc getting into the backfield. So what. I was seeing from him. I actually saw a little bit of high school film on him. His ability to just get off a block and get to. The play is pretty awesome. And i think that the way. He's able to get into the backfield based on what i saw when from senior film and also last year In a couple of clips. That i saw. That's what makes a real acid number one so we've got hit number one and number. Two backing him up is john. Kelly john kelly is a senior and he's six two to thirty two also last year he got into eight games including That big comeback win over two lane so between the two of them Pretty good amount of experience there at that raider position and one thing i picked up. I was listening to a press conference with Coach pj volker. Who's linebackers coach. And you can see it on his face. I mean he is really fired up about getting out there this season because of the group of guys. He's got playing linebacker for him. So that's kind of neat to see. But what i wanted to put. The pons was talking about nick straw. And like i said he's really good at finding the ball and just reacting quickly and and making play on it so you know as a linebacker when you were plan.

Threes desire time mentally was flying but his body was already cryan out things. Start to hurt. And it's it's really tough again to think about that and think well might. My legs are hurting. I have two hundred miles to go. Should my legs still be hurting shortly. They should still be great. If i have to make it that far and then you remember yeah. I just ran fifty miles through the mountains. I guess it makes sense that they're hurting and that's just how they're going to be and we'll deal with it and hopefully they don't get worse. I bet you at the end of his second day about one hundred and sixty miles in a source approaches. I was busy trying to stiffer sausage. All into my mouth in another example of elite nutrition and set off after him. I could see at this point. He's just looked awkward. He was collapsing in on his ankles. And i just saw this guy's knocking them out in the next few miles so overtook him and he he saw matt. Tennessee sucks. because i'm a bit of fan of the state anna. We bonded. I asked him said. Shall we chat. And he says you could talk all you may. I might choose to answer. I might not and so of course you know me occasionally talk sometime semaines. Sometimes to his feet remember a particular moment after the field where he did not in swear when came out with this line feet do off job. This guy is struggling but he was still moving. And i. I was running within but i was still pretty tired myself and i'd never let him know whenever i was feeling tired. I'd go john you smashing. This may but that was secretly an internal chrysler health and so this continued for for the next twenty miles. I wanna left him. John was doing really well and even remembered joking with my support crew at that point. They told me that the forecast the next evening the finish looked good. And i said well what about the afternoon and saw getting a little bit. Cocky their functioned Of course still a wrong way to go at that point you might have been joking around putting knew that this with the make or break moments. He defied that his race up into three major sections the first bit. We knew this is tough terrain. The second bit is where you start to ruin out a few and you so far away from the finish that you can't really imagine it but the final section he just going into the second night On again any of these multi events that second night is when things get real and might look at the tracker and thank our. He's four hours ahead with just eighty miles. Who sees he's got it. It's in the bag. But all of these things where you're at the edge and you're at your limit for so long it's so easy to to stumble off of that edge and crash and burn. And and and you're john. Started to stagger slip. Off that point i went. He took a longer than usual. His whole core temperature drought and that could be dangerous. Could even be the end so at this point so much has gone into any one of these efforts from me from my family from my support crew through training through preparation to the early stages of the run itself that at any point in time relatively speaking. What's left is trivial. you know. I've got one hundred miles gironde enough. Got twenty four hours left in by itself. That that seems quite quite the undertaken. Especially when you've already gone as far as i have but stack amount of time out against everything else and it's nothing so why stop. Why what yourself. Ease up when you're that.

"When our laser lasik lights a cigarette and john. The hometown kid starts running you getting that dense forest and everything looks the same and you know if you get separated by a hundred meters from someone that they're gone you can't see him anymore and you look around and then that's that you can't make tales of of where you're going. I big proportion of the loop set off trail through thick forest with the conditions on the four being mix should tencent the growth hidden rocks mood so slippery laughs. Interface trail shoes. And that's before you take into account the inch long soa briars which reggie legs giving you wounds affectionately known as rock bites joan thought i grew up in no tells i'd been flushing grouse out of those tickets for my dad since i was eight years old. So what's the big deal. let's go. He still being from was going to give him a big advantage over the other owners. He got a little cocky and he went out little too hot also again i. I didn't really know what i was doing that point. I didn't have a lot of experience in my main mistake. Was thinking that you know. I'll fuel with with sports bars and and energy jails for this entire time. That's that's gotta be the most efficient way. That's gotta be the most calories per per weight in whatnot and after thirty hours of of nothing but engineered processed sugar products. Your stomach just kinda says now. I'm good now. no more of that. John made it three to leap to the coles. Okay if he can only stomach one sports jail. That wasn't going to be enough shot. I was out of fuel. Can couldn't get any more fuel in my body and i had never been in that state before My family was there crewing for me. They had never seen anyone in that state before. They were wondering if i needed to go to the emergency room as out of it as i looked and so yeah i didn't continue on. I've seen photos at y'all after his first attempt at the barclay looked like he needed more than just one more jail. Imagine that kind of dead inside five like most people. John didn't finish the barclay but unlike most people he hadn't had enough yet the next year two thousand and sixteen. He went back this time. He finished one more loop which probably meant about one hundred miles in reality but he couldn't finish the course thing is john just knew he had a lot more to give. He just did so in two thousand seventeen. He went back again. Determined to finally finish this than-thank off. Remember how the only give notice to the star. Well this year the start was one forty two. Lose the kind of fog where you know you can stick your hand out in front of your face and you can see it and so we. We got off to a bad start. Everything looks assay many way you got. Gps john periodically got lost. An and last many times push through and this time he made it to the final loop. The final loop was was a whole different world. The of the barclay is not just the last bit of a race now. It's a whole different mental and physical state of being that most humans. Don't ever get to on most of his. Don't want to get to something that i had never experienced and the year before when i finished four leaps. Think how you were you were so close you were almost there is no no. I wasn't the fifth wheel. Is something different entirely. Jonathan really for almost forty hours now with little sleep and little food. he's starting to break down. He couldn't go any longer without arrest. I took a number of trailside naps. tried to do it at places that had the most miserable conditions who is where the wind swept over a ridge or something that i knew after ten minutes my body would be more uncomfortable. I know there than keeping. And i would wake up so that worked twelve Then it got rainy and cold and foggy. Maybe that help keep me awake. But all the same. I had to to grab some refuse plastic bag in a prison hat to keep myself warm and ended up kind of on the west peak after his nap john had only warned downhill run left. I corrected almost pages. Just said to get down a nice easy trail to the finish and blanked out for about twenty minutes. Twenty minutes just disappeared from my watch. I hadn't gone anywhere. I still have no idea what i did during those twenty minutes if i fell asleep for better or just wandered around or what. How do you keep mentally. In the moment there because we've talked in the past about sorts of altruism they at least sonate they lose twenty minutes on top of amounts in. How'd you snap back into the game. And just say. I need to move. Yes that's that's a tough one hundred and especially at that point again. I was still a consider myself relatively inexperienced compared to now And now i have this huge reservoir of memories. Draw on where i've kind of been there before and i know you've been there before you can pull out of this. This is how you pulled out of it. You're you're gonna do it But for me really. It's it's about lowering the number of things that my mind needs to be processing to a level that it it actually still has enough capacity to focus at least had a sport psychologists to properly explain this to me but what i reckon it boils down to basically as he just needs to keep telling your legs to move one step in front of the other. And maybe the few distractions the better. So after guavas. Twenty minutes on the final hill. I was just constantly remind myself all the way down the mountain. Just have to touch the our gay.

But there was one iconic race that he'd been fixated on since he started running the barclay madison's now in its fifth year around a thousand brave souls toe the line of those only fifteen people have ever finished and it took nine years for the first to make it. Why is it so hard. The lay of the land brambles and briars and boggs james bell. Ray dr martin luther king's assassin was locked up around the braschi mountain penitentiary.

Well he couldn't few people could so we settle per race was simply finishing. Was it the limit of human endurance. Generally if you just finish that means you won. There have only been a few years more than one. People have finished. Frankly given his level of expedience at the time it was not for to even contemplate entering barkley but there was taken the reason his heart was set on it. Yeah so. I grew up there right across the road. From where the barkley marathons takes place families spin on that ran for two hundred years. Now which in america that's forever pretty much does even a mountain named after kelly family right next to the barclay. 'cause joan grew chasing his cousins around those hills and every year as a boy he saw these crazed look in ruins. Imagine half dead. From those sick breida's he felt like the race this to rain within his blood so we decided to sign up for it. Archway got in. I'm being the hometown kid and yeah that was that was quite the awakening and i had honestly no idea what i was doing. I kind of panicked and said how do i train for this. I don't know how to train. I guess i should run up hills. Where's a hill. There's a hill. I should go run up that hill. And i just went and ran up every hill but i would probably dot west i to the races at least one hundred miles long. Nobody ever really seems to know. It's five laps of course with a toll elevation double that of address from sea level. That's sixty thousand feet twice as high as a cruise jumbo jet one of the most nerve racking things about the barclay is he.

You know, you gotta let Trump be trump. Let Trump be Trump, Kelly says specifically that you and others didn't have the spine to tell the president No. That is not true. I'm sorry to hear John say that. Not gonna pick a fight with John Kelly. The advice is good advice not to surround yourself with Yes, men. Look, we saw the president be presidential. You were one of the yes, Men. All that? Well, he just listen. John should know more than anyone else that what happens when the doors close in the Oval Office is not the stuff you see on TV. It's easy now, Chris for people who who don't like the president who never liked the president, who always thought the president was a monster wanted him to be that people who saw him Through the filter of the media to say, Look, we told you that was we knew was always going to be like this. But those of us who worked with him every single day knew that the exact opposite was true knew that he was into the policy. He was excited about what we have done for the country. Unemployment was down. We didn't have any new foreign wars We had a lot of success is 2.2. Despite all of those sort of stylistic things that people like John Kelly just really didn't like. We had those successes that we were very proud of the work that we were doing very proud of letting the president be the president because he was elected as the president. But again, all of that changed on Wednesday, and I don't know why. But again make you know A lot of people say it didn't change on Wednesday, Kelly was right.

This is the bench parish ourselves. Another attempt to Ah, Quiet, dissenting voices, Senator Josh Ali, who was one of the ringleaders of this whole, Let's challenge the electoral college results thing, and I said From beginning it was Not legally based. That was going nowhere that it was basically a publicity ploy for Senator Holly. Now his book has been canceled by Simon and Schuster. Now you don't have to agree with Josh Halle, who again I just criticized right there. Form for this tactic, which I thought was wrong headed in the extreme from the get go. You don't have to agree with anything Josh Ali has done in order to also believe that it is a very, very bad policy. You suggested that book contract should be canceled because some people who were not Josh Holli did a bad thing. Not at the behest of Josh Holloway. That this seems like a very, very dark path that we're going down right now. According to Kansas city dot com. Missouri Senator John Kelly called Simon and Schuster a woke mob for canceling his upcoming book on Thursday, the day after an actual mob loyal to President Trump stormed the capital. Simon and Schuster said in a statement It had decided not to release the Republican senators book the tyranny of Big Tech. The company added. He didn't come to the decision lightly. Holly was the first senator to sign onto an objection to the certification of Biden's of victory, joining a challenge to Pennsylvania results that ensured the Congress will debate the election on Wednesday. Remember what what hell he did was not Prime officially illegal. It was wrong that there was no legal basis for it. His objection could have been ruled out of order. Worse. That was gonna happen if the process hadn't allowed to go forward is that he would've said some stuff. We're gonna vote rejected him, and that would be the end of the process right? That is sort of the expected serious events that is supposed to happen on Wednesday. It just didn't go that way because the rioters decided to break in in the middle. Nonetheless, Simon a few stories blaming Holly outright. They put out a statement saying As a publisher, it will always be our mission. The ample MMA amplify a variety of voices in viewpoints at the same time we take seriously are larger public responsibility as citizens and cannot support Senator Holly after his role in what became a dangerous threat to our democracy and freedom. So did Holly encourage people to storm the Capitol building and missed it. Like I can again agree that what he did was wrong. I can agree that what he did was bad. I'm not sure why that would wrong and bad does not mean you lose a book contract. Typically, I can point to any number of authors who I mean Al Sharpton still has a publisher. Needs and I see people on the right. We're like, Well, you know, Simon interest rates, everybody, Of course they do. They've ever right to do that. They have every right to look at Josh Holly and say, Listen, we don't want to be associated with you right now. We don't like what you did. They never right to do that. At the same time, there's a certain irony to them, negating a book about the tyranny of big tech on the grounds. That it is a threat to democracy for Josh Holly to speak. There's a certain irony to that. Again. It's not just gonna stop Josh Holly because the goal of the left here is to proclaim that everybody is is the writers and that Josh Holly is writer and that you are writer and that I'm a writer, and everybody is this right? Everybody is complicity. Every single person. Joe Scarborough, who, by the way, I'm old enough to remember because I'm more than five years old. I'm old enough to remember when Joe Scarborough was sitting on a said, joking it up, yucking it up with President Trump. Back in 2016. When some of us were still opposing Trump in the primaries, Joe Scarborough was having amount TV and hanging out with them and talking him up and treating her with kid gloves. Now, Joe Scarborough thinks that Trump Trump Jr and Rudy Giuliani should all be arrested. For incitement in legal case there is going to be extraordinarily weak, considering that if you actually read the transcript of what President, Trump said the other day again. None of it's good, but he did say We're gonna go down to the Capitol and we're going to peacefully express ourselves when we kind of had to prosecute on that basis here is Joe Scarborough calling for the arrest of Trump, Trump Jr and Rudy Giuliani. If Donald Trump Jr. Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump are not arrested today for insurrection and taken to jail and booked If the Capitol Hill police do not go through every video And look at the face of every person. That invaded our capital. And if they are not arrested and brought to justice today, Yeah. And we're no longer a nation of laws. And we on Lee, tell people they can't do this again. Okay, So Yeah, That'll definitely come. The water's probably is, if we arrest Trump and Trump Jr and Rudy Giuliani. Maybe we should arrest anybody in the media who was complicity from Cerise Joe. We can do that. How are you gonna take this? Oh, not that far. I didn't think so. Meanwhile, over the New York Times, shockingly the left is using this as an opportunity suggest that this a perfect time to ram through their agenda. Ah, perfect time. I mean, it really is amazing there people online or very angry, and Peggy Noonan from the left today, right? Peggy Noonan wrote a piece saying that Trump should either resign, be impeached or be subject to the 25th amendment and focus on the left were like Peggy Noonan and that jerk Peggy Noonan. Where was she? For four years where we expecting Newman? Nothing is ever good enough for these folks, of course, accept full agreement with anything they believe. So there's a piece by Roxanne Game in The New York Times, saying now is the perfect time to ram through the Democratic agenda. She says. On Wednesday, the world bore witness to white supremacy. Unchecked, I nearly choked on the bitter pill of what white people who no doubt condemned black lives matter. Protestors as thugs felt so entitled to do After the capital was cleared of protesters.

Trump wants Fox News journalist fired over reports on his alleged U.S. troops insults
"Was also the host of CNN's Reliable sources. Program joins us to talk about what you uncovered about the evolution and impact of the Trump Fox partnership. But first we're going to get his take on some of today's political news and welcome Brian Stelter. Good to have you with us. Hey, great. Grateful to be here. Thank you so much. I'd like to begin by talking about the article by Jeffrey Goldberg, the editor in chief of Atlantic whom you had on your program on CNN's reliable sources, just on Sunday. And just for some background for listeners who may not know about this. Trump is alleged to have called those who died in World War one losers and suckers. They were buried in a cemetery outside of Paris and supposedly Again. Allegedly. He didn't want to honor the dead for fear his hair would be messed up. Jennifer Griffin of Fox News has backed up the story and confirmed it in the White House is denied it. They've given the title of your book called it a Hoax. And Trump said it never happened, but I want to get to here is Trump wants girlfriend fired, he said. Fox News is gone. This is maybe change the relationship with Fox. First of all your thoughts about that, but also About what Goldberg told you, Which is this is just the tip of the iceberg. I do expect more reporting in the coming days, including quite possibly from Bob Woodward's book. I Hate to start out talking about some other author. But I'll tell you what. There's a lot of anticipation for Woodward's book Rage, which comes out next Tuesday. And I think one of the reasons why Jeffrey Goldberg published his story when he did. Was perhaps because he thinks what word has some similar reporting. So look, we will see we will find out when that book begins to leak, But I think that the Atlantic and other outlets Have Provided Mohr evidence of a pattern of the president, disparaging veterans and disrespecting the military. Some of this is in the president's own words, including yesterday. When he comments on people at the top of the military just wanting to start wars. Making basically calling them or profiteers. No, I think what the president has done by attacking Fox on this story. By saying reported over Griffin should be fired because she was able to corroborate part of Jeffrey Goldberg report. Is that he's working the refs. He doesn't want news on Fox News. He only wants propaganda. So one minute he will attack a reporter at Fox or complain about Anchorage, Fox, and the next minute he will promote Pete Hegseth, Jeannine Pirro. I'll call into Sean Hannity show her fox and friends. It shows that he doesn't want journalism on the air. He wants pro trump opinion in orderto keep his base is solid as a rock. Well, he's going against Ah, much respected reporter here who has had a great deal of praise for her integrity on the fact that matter is Fox kind of threw her under the bus, didn't they? I think Fox did not sufficiently. Promote and tout its own reporting. So once Griffin had corroboration for some of Goldberg's account, she did go on the air once and talk about it. A couple other shows, acknowledged it. But the dominant theme of the coverage was still trumps denials. And I would understand that they'd emphasize the denials. The president was known to be a proud on his truth Teller, someone who never told a lie. But this president has proven that his words are meaningless. By his own actions. He's country to himself all the time and lied to the public constantly about the pandemic and other matters. Soto lead with the president's denial seems faulty to me. Especially when your own reporter from your own outlet. Has backed up some of the reporting. But again, this just shows the tug of war between Fox and inside Fox between news and opinions, and I think it shows that opinions almost always winning. Well, let's talk, though, about what has come out of this controversy, which is the whole validity of unnamed sources. There have been certainly a lot of accusations that many do not corroborate the story. In fact, John Bolton's name has been mentioned on frequent occasions as well as other Trump supporters who claim that he never said what has been alleged here. On yet you have Carl Bernstein. I think on your show, saying with Watergate under Nixon, they were close to 200 sources that were simply a name. So it's the nature of ice floes reporting and journalism to a great extent, sometimes to have on named sources. But Let's get to the heart of it. I mean, this has been certainly stirring around this controversy. It absolutely has. And I think it is great to have a chance to talk about anonymous sourcing because it is so often misunderstood, and reporters don't do enough to explain why and how we rely on anonymous sourcing number one. The source's heir, never anonymous to the reporters and to their bosses. You know, when I'm using anonymous sources for CNN, at least one of my bosses has to know if the story is very sensitive than multiple people are going to know the identity of this person. And we're going to have a conversation about why they're credible and why we're taking their word and why we're publishing it. You know that kind of checks and balances system is what journalism needs. And what the public needs to know happens so they can have more confidence in the reporting. You know, with with regards to the Atlantic, I think We also know a couple of things from Jeffrey Goldberg record number one. He has quoted John Kelly on the record before he's quoted James Mattis on the record before he clearly has journalistic relationships with some of these retired generals. And that's helpful to know if you're wondering who his sources might be for this story.
President Trump denies report he called U.S. fallen soldiers "losers" and "suckers"
"Friday evening denying a report he disparaged fallen American soldiers while on a ship to France in 2018, he went after a former aide who was suggested as the person who claimed the president called the fallen losers and suckers. Many veterans furious with reports, the president spoke critically of American War dead. President Trump has denied it. One person who has not is the president's former chief of staff, John Kelly. I mean, I see anonymous, but it could have been a guy like a John Kelly. Resident discounting anything. Kelly might have said this man was totally exhausted. He wasn't even able to function in the last number of months. Retired General Kelly hasn't commented. Andy
Trump reportedly called service members "losers" and "suckers"
"Again in the Atlantic and it sets the scene all the way back in two thousand eighteen when trump was in. Paris he was supposed to visit a cemetery for soldiers who died in war and if you'll remember he didn't actually end up going because he said the helicopter couldn't fly because it was raining. And there was a big deal about that obviously because he was afraid of a little rain. He also tried to claim that the secret service wouldn't drive but Jeffrey Goldberg says neither claim was true. In reality he says trump rejected the idea of visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain and because he did not believe it was important honor American war dead in that is according to four people with firsthand knowledge of discussion that day. He goes on to say in a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit. Trump said quote why should I go to that cemetery? It's filled with losers. It continues in a separate conversation on the same trip trump referred to more than eighteen hundred marines who lost their lives at Bellawood as quote suckers for getting killed. Bellawood was apparently consequential battle in American history I don't remember it off the top of my head, but I'm just reading what's in the article here. And it says that in that same trip talking about world war. One trump asked who are the good guys in this war? He also said that he didn't understand why the United States would intervene on the side of the allies. Now you'll remember he said this about John McCain back in two thousand fifteen but lost. So I, never liked him as much after that because I don't like interest. But but Frank Franklin. We get to He. He's war hero. He's a war. He's a war hero presumes capture. I like people that weren't captured. Okay. I hate to. The article says that trump had remained fixated on McCain in that when he died back in August twenty, eighteen trump told his senior staff this time according to three sources with direct knowledge of quote we going to support that losers funeral end quote and that he became furious when he saw flags lowered to half-staff saying quote what the F. Are we doing that for guy was a f Ing Loser The White House denies this whole report by the way saying, then the Anti Yadda trump's supported the military more than any president. The article continues according to sources with knowledge of the president's views. He seems to genuinely not understand why Americans treat former prisoners of war with respect. Nor does he understand why pilots who are shot down in combat are honored by the military on at least two occasions since becoming president according to three sources with direct knowledge of his views trump referred to former president George h.w Bush as a quote loser for being shot down by the Japanese. This is where it starts to really get cruel on memorial day twenty, seventeen trump went with then department of Homeland Security Secretary John, Kelly to Arlington Cemetery. The article says the two men were set to visit section sixty, the fourteen acre area of the cemetery that it is burial ground for those killed in America's most recent wars. Kelly son Robert is buried in section sixty according to sources with knowledge of this visit trump while standing by Robert Kelly's grave turned directly to John Kelly in said quote I don't get it what was in it for them. Kelly said he originally thought trump was making a ham handed reference to these selflessness of America's all volunteer force. But later he came to realize that trump simply does not understand non transactional life choices. This is coming from one of Kelly's friends who Goldberg says a retired four. Star General. This friend says quote he can't fathom the idea of doing something for someone other than himself. He just thinks that anyone who does anything when there's no direct personal gain to be had is a sucker. There's no money in serving the nation trump can't imagine anyone else's pain. That's why he would say this to the father of a fallen marine on Memorial Day in the cemetery where he's buried. It goes on to talk about how trump is basically used the military as props how he thinks they answer only to not the constitution as evidenced by his gassing of peaceful protesters in officer who had firsthand knowledge of trump's views says quote. He has a lot of fear. He doesn't see the heroism in fighting and then Goldberg says several observers told me that trump is deeply anxious about dying or being disfigured in this worry manifests itself as disgust for those who have suffered. Than it tells another story about how trump falsely claimed he called quote virtually all of the family members of service members who had died during his term, and then when family started speaking out and saying, no, you didn't trump had to begin rush shipping condolences to those families. Felt last paragraph ends on, which is actually pretty profound. I didn't expect you know something. So big to be saved for the end I thought would be the author's own thoughts but it says in a twenty eighteen White House planning meeting for such an event trump asked to staff not to include wounded veterans on grounds that spectators would feel uncomfortable in the presence of amputees quote nobody wants to see that end quote. I think to me the details really do add credibility and he says he's talking to three or four sources all the time. But it got really interesting here when the Associated Press confirmed his sources essentially this tweet from James Laporta an investigative reporter former marine infantryman. Now, obviously, with the Associated Press, the port a tweeted out yesterday a senior Defense Department official I just spoke with confirmed this story by Jeffrey. Goldberg in its entirety especially the graphs about late senator, John McCain and former Marine General John Kelly president. Donald Trump's former chief of staff. So before that, you had people trying to push out, wouldn't say this. Of course, he didn't say this this is false. Trump. Himself devoted three tweets to claiming that was just a hoax made up by the media who are hungry to You know and his political career. But yeah, that was definitely a big shock when she came out in essentially confirmed most of the story. Republicans are doing their usual remaining silent or denying that it's still true. and. I just don't know how you could say it's not true. He said this in public but. I never liked him as much after that because I don't like. It was right out there and this other tweet from just some random twitter account but it made me think the commander in chief was found guilty stealing money from kids. Cancer charity mocks disabled reporters, gases, protesters for photo ops over twenty thousand lies kills one hundred, ninety, thousand Americans violate civil rights, incites violence calls, fallen soldiers, losers, and suckers. Yeah I guess if you put it against everything, we know about trump name calling certainly seems to be in his wheelhouse. Mentioned surprised that this came to be a big story
Trump and 2015 McCain comments
"Donald trump is vehemently denying allegations made in a shocking Atlantic piece, which claims that trump refused to visit a US military cemetery near Paris in two thousand, eighteen because the fallen soldiers were in his words, losers and suckers. Now I say it was a shocking piece but to be honest with you not so shocking when you consider all the different times, he transparently brazenly said terrible things about members of our military who happen to disagree with him politically. But here he is denying it and then I'll give you what the facts are to think that I would make statements negative to. Our military and our fallen heroes nobody's done what I've done. With the budgets with the military budgets with getting pay raises military it is a disgraceful situation. By a magazine that's a terrible magazine. I don't read it by disagreed with John. McCain. But still respected him and I had to approve his funeral is president. We lowered the flags I had to approve that nobody else I had to approve it when you think I'm just thinking back. I had to approve either Air Force One or military plane. To go to Arizona to pick up his casket and I approved it immediately. So. Let's take a look at a trump tweet from two thousand fifteen because there's always tweet. This is from July two, thousand fifteen where trump referred to John McCain as a loser. I mean he tweeted an article about himself calling John McCain loser. So he was bragging about it also when McCain died in two thousand, eighteen trump refused to lower the White House flag back to half staff even though it's become customary for presidents to sign a proclamation calling for the flag to remain at half staff for members of Congress until the day of interment, and then one other piece of evidence to Kinda refute trump's narrative in that video take a look and I said somebody should run against John McCain who has been. In my opinion not so hot I supported him. I supported for President I raised a million dollars from a lot of money. I supported him. He lost he let us down but he lost. So. I never liked him as much after that because I don't like to lose. But. But Frank Franklin we're get doing. He hit me he's a war hero. He's a war hero he's a war hero presumed captured. I like people that weren't captured. Okay I hate to tell you. That was from twenty. Fifteen event in Iowa. So. I don't know how to talk trump supporters anymore. That's why I'm done with them in my personal life and everywhere else because the guy. Ridiculous Liar. Does he know that he tweeted on John McCain's loser does he know he said on? Massimo you guys all remember when he said for people who weren't. But earlier, he said, I don't like losers referring to John McCain. So why did he come out yesterday and say no I never malsor. Each just unbelievable he's capable and so if you say, Hey, know what I love people who are Liars Okay again I mean do you boo okay. and. And look again. I. Blame the media. And Because So many politicians lie and they never call it out. They'd never they enabled politicians lies for decades. So eventually, you got one that. So over the top that even. Though. And remember you guys remember it took them like a couple of years before they finally gather up the nerve to say, well, what Donald Trump said, there was not correct. I'm forgetting the name of the CNN analyst who finally just said it and then went on this three minute rant fact checking trump. Fact checking trump's RNC speech but he started that three minute rant by saying trump lied he's a liar and I was like. Is. This CNN what's going on? And so yeah, you're right Jangling the fact that that excited me because it's so rare I think mean something and we'll get you the name of the person I'm talking about because he deserves all the credit I'm kind of blanking right now but look I actually think with this particular story and a few others. The media has done a decent job. So for instance, business insider had a very lengthy list highlighting all the different times, Donald trump attacked members of the military right and fallen soldiers. So I wanna read a few of them right now in fact, as you guys can probably remember in July of two thousand, sixteen trump attacked the family of captain who mine con a slain soldier someone who died. Fighting for the country dismissing a speech his father Kaiser Khan made because he said Khan's mother hadn't been allowed to speak the family said she had not spoken because she too emotional to talk about her son's death. And he just kept going after that family. It was it was honestly disgusting in October of two thousand seventeen trump forgot the name of slain US Army Sergeant La- David Johnson while he was on the phone with his widow, Johnson was killed in an ambush in. Niger. While while in active service. Misha. Johnson said the call was trump made her cry and trump told her that her husband knew would he had signed up for in November of two thousand Eighteen Fox News is Chris Wallace asked trump about his thoughts on retired Admiral William mcraven a former navy seal been. who was behind the mission that killed Osama bin. Laden. He interrupted Wallace and said Hillary Clinton. Fan. When Wallace continued trump did to excuse me Hillary Clinton Fan trump went on to repeat that mcraven supported Clinton which by the way he hadn't as well as former President Barack Obama and said frankly wouldn't have been nice if we got Osama bin Laden a lot sooner than that. I mean, there's so many more examples Jank but I mean I want to give you an opportunity to respond to some of them. By the way Daniel Dale is the CNN reporter that I was referring to earlier go ahead. So we've seen him call the generals, losers, thousands of times and so. I guess people are shocked at that. He would go and call the fallen soldiers losers as well, and not just stop a general's or veterans or captured soldiers. But is it really shy at all? He calls everybody lose them in his denial. He called the military people who were the sources for this story lowlifes and liars. If you're trying to deny that you'd ever call anybody in the military losers you shouldn't then turn around in your denial and call them lowlifes. Buyers. So I look. Landing brokers story with four sources. Then Washington Post back it up with three sources and the Associated Press also found sources all saying the same thing. I actually want to read a few excerpts from the Washington Post piece. Again, these aren't the same sources. These are additional sources who also spoke to the Washington Post about. Their experience with trump and what he had to say about fallen soldiers in one account. The president told senior advisors that he didn't understand why the US government plays such a high value on finding. Oh. This is so disgusting finding soldiers missing in action because they had performed poorly and gotten caught in deserved what they got according to a person familiar with the discussion. Okay. That That part of the story like I don't know all of it is gross but that part hit me the hardest because he just doesn't value people's lives and think about losing a family member that way and knowing that the president of the United States does not care to find their bodies. A trump believes people who served in Vietnam War must be losers. They hadn't gotten out of it according to a person familiar with the comments. Trump also complained bitterly to then chief of staff, John Kelly that he didn't understand why Kelly and others in the military treated. McCain, who had been imprisoned and tortured during the Vietnam War with such reverence isn't he kind of a loser? Trump asked according to a person familiar with trump's comments. So. Look at Donald Trump says, this is outrageous synonymous sources. Donald Trump also, just a couple of days ago said that there was a plane full of thugs who are gonNA come and disturb. His, acceptance speech and caused violence and when asked, who told you that he said? I can't tell you basically it's anonymous. So. I'm supposed to believe your anonymous source of a trust me to go. You would know trust me. But we're not supposed to believe now it looks like about a half, a dozen military sources for that talked to three different publications all saying the same thing and all saying things that are very similar to what you said before and by the way yesterday show before the Washington Post Associated Press stories came out I said I guarantee you. that. He thinks that they're suckers 'cause he out of be fake doctor's note because his daddy bottom one and he thinks they're suckers for not being able to get out of the war his spoil less and it turns out. That's exactly what he said according to the military sources that heard him say. And remember when sources are anonymous to the general public that doesn't mean that there are anonymous to the reporters. Reporters have to vet their anonymous sources and corroborate what they're saying So maybe they're anonymous to us, but they're not anonymous to the reporters.

Joe Bide responds to report Trump called U.S. service members buried in France 'losers', 'suckers'
"We're getting continued reaction tonight to this reporting of the Atlantic tonight from Jeffrey. Goldberg their pieces titled Trump Americans who died in war are losers and suckers Gobert rece-. Citing several anecdotes with multiple sources for each of them which the president is. said to have derided US service members who have died in combat as losers and suckers. And who has expressed who expressed even standing over the grave of John Kelly son who died in Afghanistan at age twenty, nine that he doesn't get why Americans would choose to serve in the military. The Associated Press has just posted James Portas new piece as well confirming. The core reporting Jeffrey Goldberg's piece tonight in the Atlantic Laporta, confirming it again with multiple sources just Goldberg has but I want to tell you we've just had response from Vice President Joe Biden with a statement in response. Quote if the revelations in today's Atlantic article or true there yet another marker of how deeply president trump and I disagree about the role of the president of the United States I've Long said that the nation we have many obligations but we have only one truly sacred obligation to prepare those we send into harm's way and to care for them and their families both while they're deployed and After they return home. That's the foundation of what Jilin I believe. That's why we've always prioritized the health and wellbeing of our service members, veterans, and military families. We have visited troops coming home wounded, and Walter Reed we've hosted wounded veterans in our home to share Thanksgiving meal and it's the proud parents of a son who served in Iraq. We've made supporting military spouses, caregivers and children are focus. Of Our service generations of American troops have shed blood around the world and defensive our freedoms and to protect vital interests from the frontlines of our own revolution to Bellawood to the Normandy beaches to the mountains of Afghanistan, the sacrifice and bravery of our troops and their willingness to serve our nation should be honored duty honor country. Those are the values that drive our servicemembers. Those are the values. That, have formed the core of America's defense for centuries in. If have the honor of serving as the next commander in chief I will ensure that our American heroes know that I will have their back and honor their sacrifices always
Booker says 'moral moment' must be met with change
"Donald Trump is the first president of my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people does not even pretend to try instead he tries to divide us general Mattis is letter was a stunning and powerful I respected Germanos that he has every right to express his opinion that's his opinion and these comments from former White House chief of staff John Kelly I think we should look at people that are running for office and put them to the children they are what is their character like what is there what are their ethics are they willing if they are elected to represent all their constituents not just the base and joining me now is democratic senator Cory Booker of New Jersey senator Booker welcome back to meet the press you call this moral moment for this country but these protests are also trying to spur more than just awareness they're trying to spur a policy change will be more confident in that we're meeting a moral moment or that will actually lead to changes in our policy will be the same in fact when I look at everything from the suffrage movement to the labor movement in this country it's always been the people in the streets often young people who have demanded and forced a change in consciousness that made policy changes possible working all week with Kamel Harris and allies in the house to get real policies proposed and will be releasing a bill tomorrow for things that should have been done in this country a long time ago banning certain police practices creating deeper accountability and so I'm just grateful to see this kind of nonviolent protest outpouring the streets because they are leading their putting the pressure they're creating a possibility that our policies can reflect the spirit of this country that we can be in the law a more beloved nation you know you're you have a unique set of experiences you've been a mare you're a federal office holder in the Senate where should most of this change be enacted on the local level or or on your on the federal level I'm it's got to be enacted on every level we are a society where we are culpable we have created a nation distinct from any other on the planet earth we incarcerate the plurality of human beings incarcerate one out of every three women on the planet earth they are incarcerated or here in America we've taken so much of our treasure between the time I was in law school two time I once mayor we were building a new prison or jail every ten days and explicitly and implicitly we all have made a decision that we're going to treat mental illness with prison jail and police addiction with prison jail improve police poverty with prison jail and police and overwhelmingly African Americans with prison jail and police we now in America have more African American men under criminal supervision then call the sleeves of men that were slaves in eighteen fifty this is astonishing this is unacceptable we need to be more Regis in our compassion for one another more more ambitious in our imagination that we can create a society that's not so over policed or where police we don't tolerate certain tactics that have had a generation in fear you said at the beginning of this that eighty plus percent of Americans think this country's out of control well for black people in this country we thought this country's out of control in the way police is our communities and individuals for a very long time in this awakening is so important to create real substantive change not just lip service from politicians tell us something tell me how you're thinking is change being a mare at one point you thought you didn't want the federal government that you thought some of the oversight over the New York police department at the time and in different ways you even braced it since what did you learn over time about this issue well it shows the insidiousness of institutional racism well we are a majority black city in New York we had a majority black city council black mare black police chief and we knew we inherited a a police department with decades of challenges and so we went to work when I got into office to reform our police department but we didn't have the data we didn't have the transparency and it took the federal government and their accountability in their systems and data analysis to show that we were not moving as fast as we should and so we took on a very ambitious plans that extend from everything from changing our missile court system with drug courts and veterans courts and youth courts to pulling in experts from John Jay college just say you don't have to arrest people to create safer neighborhoods that there are other ways to go and I partnered with the ACLU before I left to set a national standard a collection of data collection practices so I learned the hard way that this is not a system that is always explicitly done by over racism this is a system that's real bait that we all have to take responsibility for and get practice it is bad to like a you're gonna see in the bill we're gonna release but just give greater transparency and greater accountability for those working with police I want to ask you about de funding the police last night in Washington DC on sixteenth street right next to the black lives matter letters the phrase deep on the police was painted down there and that is there's a lot of passion around that issue and when you hear that and the phrase may mean different things to different people but when you hear that what's your reaction I understand clearly the sentiment and the substance behind the slogan and so well thought slogan I will use are your people just dismiss it and don't get deeper into the substance as I said earlier it is not a mark of a beloved community to prey upon the most vulnerable and your society we are using police and fire a guy ran police departments I would have exhausted police officer saying why are we using police to deal with the fragility or vulnerability of our society there's so much money going into our police departments there is a more expensive way to deal with it I remember being surprised in Seattle with a housing group called Plymouth housing where they showed me a data analysis where they look at what was more expensive for society gifts providing supportive housing for Americans with mental illness that were homeless or leaving them on the streets and they found out they were of the same Seattle millions of dollars bite giving people supportive housing because homeless people left on the streets with mental illnesses end up in hospital emergency rooms and jails and and so this is the outrageous but I think people on the streets are feeling and that I share is that we are over policed as a society that we are investing in police which is not solving problems but making them worse when we should be in a more compassionate country in a more loving country I know love is at the core of our ideals but it needs to be made manifest in our policies we would actually spend less money we would elevate human dignity and human potential and we would set a standard on the planet earth for how we treat those who are vulnerable as opposed to what we're seeing right now center when you're running for president you were quite critical of of former vice president Joe Biden and you question whether you question whether his past whether he had the credibility given his record on some of these issues to to be a reformer on this where are you now well I'm fully you have to put my faith in a Joe Biden to be the person who could preside over this transformative change and I'm gonna tell you right now the heroes for me as I look at great presidents past the time of LBJ for example are extraordinary capable leader like Joe Biden but the real heroes in that generation were the people who were sick and tired of being sick and tired and and if there are protesters listening to the show I just pray and I want to say to them with all sincerity stay on the streets near nonviolent protest state demanding change and I think that Joe Biden's election can do that and look Donald Trump can't center himself in this this this is such a bigger moment than him this is not a referendum on one person in one office this is a referendum on who we are as Americans and who are going to be to each other this is a moral moment will we become a more loving and compassionate society not with our rhetoric but with our laws in a rule is and how can I treat the most vulnerable and so this is that moment that I think Joe Biden can be the president for but the responsibility is not on any individual it's on
Trump's former chief of staff John Kelly: 'we need to look harder at who we elect'
"Former trump White House chief of staff retired Marine. General John Kelly today, adding his voice to the chorus of former top trump officials, not just dismayed with President Trump's handling of the current crisis, but worried Kelly agreeing with former defense secretary.

In Washington DC, White House adds fencing around perimeter
"The trump administration is building. What increasingly looks like a fortress? The White House are early this morning. Crews began extending metal fencing a steel wall. If you will from Pennsylvania, avenue virtually all the way down to Constitution Avenue across the street from the National Mall that is on, and there's some of that fencing right right there that is on top of the fencing. That's already surrounding the White House in addition to that. There remains a militarized police presence in Lafayette. Park around the White House giving this area. The Look of something out of an authoritarian country not the people's House as you describe it in on top of all of that White House officials say quote. All options are on the table for dealing with these protesters in the meantime Attorney General William. Bar is defending the use of force to clear out Lafayette's. Where before the President Church photo op on Monday authorities had hoped to establish a secure perimeter earlier in the day, supporting the Attorney General, but ran out of time. Here's more of what he had to say. It was our hope to be able to do that. relatively quickly before Many demonstrators appeared that day. Unfortunately because of the difficulty in getting appropriate forces units, hinder place. by the time they were able to. Move or perimeter up to ice returned a number. A large number of protesters had assembled I did not know that. That he was going to do that until later in the day after our plans were well underway to to move the perimeter, so there was no correlation between our our tactical plan of moving the perimeter out by one block and the president's going over to the church. The president asked members of his cabinet to go over there with them. And that claim from the attorney general now as for that stinging statement from former Defense Secretary James Mattis accusing the president of dividing instead of uniting the US former White House chief of staff. John Kelly is defending the retired general, telling The Washington, post earlier today that Mattis is quote, honorable man. He also disputed the president's claim that Mr Trump fired mattis Kelly says mattis resigned the president. Quote has clearly forgotten how it actually happened or is confused quote in response to that statement for US Alaska Republican Senator Lisa. Murkowski told reporters earlier today. She agrees with former defense secretary and added. She is struggling with whether she will support the president. Come this
