Republicans denounce Trump's attempts to pressure Michigan officials
"Look. Your state is in the middle of this election controversy and as we speak the president has invited to of your republican leaders in the michigan legislature to the white house. He apparently the president does not want to accept the results of the election in michigan and appears to want the legislature to step in and award the electors to donald trump. Your reaction to that. Yeah well the the concept of the president asking someone to that is extremely troubling. I mean that's offering what the the democracy in my view and that's a terrible thing With respect to asking the legislative leaders to come meet with him at this point i wouldn't be critical of the legislative leaders. I mean step back and look at it and many people have strong feelings when they first hear this. But if the president of the united states calls you up and says he wants to meet with you. It's pretty hard to say you're not gonna go meet with him. It's really their actions. Coming out of a mess. How should be defined again. They both gone on the record to say that they didn't see any reason. There would be any change from the normal process. Taking place in michigan. They're both on the record for that. I would hope they would reiterate that to the president to say you know. That's the way it works in michigan and there's nothing to talk about if he asks for something inappropriate. Do you see any chance of fraud or improper handling of the ballots. That would in any way a raise questions about the results of the election in michigan. Now i have now. And i don't know anyone who has if you look at it all Eighty-three counties in michigan. Now certified by one by a fairly large margin actually. Republicans did well in michigan other than the presidential race. So if you look at it there's no indications in fact i believe some of the results even in wayne county or the detroit area which is the area that many people are talking about. Actually they have better results in terms of having their precincts match up on their numbers than they had four years ago. So if anything. i think. This is a good solid election. Taking place in michigan and i would expect the board of canvassers on monday to vote to certify the results. That's what they should do. So that's the state board of canvassers. And i wanna get to that in a second but we did have this episode this week. Where the two republican members of the canvassing board for wayne county which includes detroit. I said they would not vote to certify the election. Then they did then. They said they came under pressure and tried to recant it. Then there's also the suggestion that donald trump may have talked to at least one of them and possibly put pressure on them to say that they would not vote to certify. What do you make of all of that. The got certified. I think that's the important illegal point. What's trolling through. All this is the president's behavior and the people on his legal team in history. I mean there are actually undermining democracy with their actions again. If you have a ballot issue you should go to court. You prevent san evidence and you'll out of court decide all this other stuff is very damaging today actually. I'm concerned about the damage. That's going to go on for the next several years in terms of misinformation you know creating doubts in the minds of his supporters. Things like that. That's what's really troubling about. This is. I expect the process to work. I expect president-elect biden to become the next president through a legal process that were today If you look at it there hadn't been according the country to my knowledge that has found any merit any of the claims made. Let's get this thing over with but there's a lot of damage. President trump has done terrible things. I mean this man has the divider in chief in our nation and it's an awful outcome in terms of his behavior. We should point out that even though you're a two term republican governor of your state you actually endorse joe biden in this election. Why did you do that well as easy. I'm an american. I and it's in the best interest of america to have someone who's going to try to heal our country. Donald trump has been the divider and chief. The incivility in our country has reached a record level. I didn't think it could get worse. Actually post-election is showing can go even lower with this current behavior. This is awful and we need somebody to bring us back together. And joe biden. I believe can do that for the people that said they voted for trump even on a policy basis. I'm a nerd. I'm proud nerds dime into policy. Might make allergies. Were particularly that good. He had a few reasonable things that he did that. Were good but beyond that. Many of us steps really weren't that thoughtful nor good And so i think it's time for new leadership in our country. So not only did. I not want to vote for trump by found good reasons to vote for biden up and i'm glad to see that he won michigan. So you've targeted all of your criticism in this interview at donald trump. But what about the rest of your party. I assume you're you're still a republican. I'm still republican. Although a lot of republicans like the have other commentary on me. Yeah yeah let me give you an example. We have a reporter. Who works for us at yahoo news jon ward over the last week i think four times. He has emailed the comms. Directors of every republican senator. That's fifty three senators and only two of them got back and said yes and acknowledged that there was not significant fraud in this election. And we're willing to criticize a donald trump for how he handled this transition and his efforts to subvert the apparently subvert the election just two out of fifty three. What do you make of that. What do you make of of people in your party. Who have not been willing to do. What you're doing on this podcast right now and i wish there were more i really do and i would have expected more but as a practice marijuana also be conscious because these are good people. These many of these people have been public servants for years and to be blonde. Donald trump is a bully. I mean i've been on the record for that. I was as i'm a nerd. That was bullied a kid. So i understand bullying and if you're in a position like they are in many cases you have an issue with a bully out there and you're going to be pretty cautious about what you say because you don't want to be the next person that's a target of a bully. S my point. That's why i was happy to part president-elect biden was get this guy out of office and yeah backward. people actually respect one another and treat people with civility. Tell us about your own relationship with trump. because he's he's gone after you clearly and but you overlap with them while you were governor right so you must imagine. You guys must've talked. Was it like yeah. We never have had what i would describe as a real positive relationship because again if you look at that context i believe in being a positive person so even these comments are hard for me to get because i don't like being negative on anyone. I like to spend my time looking for the good in people but in his case he i would make an exception the way i viewed at many cases is he didn't understand a lot of the issues. That were going on in michigan. So i just sort of did my own thing and i didn't worry about if he was taking credit for it for example he to talk about michigan's great comeback. All that's fine. We did make michigan comeback in. We had it going. The comeback well underway before he ever became president. And if you wanna to take credit that's fine. I try to work with them. Because we're fellow public servants. He was at the federal level as at the state level. So i didn't go out of my way to generate conflict. Because if i could help michigan by getting them on board to do something for michigan that would be good

So in terms of pop culture references, I've just Finished watching I may destroy you by mechanical on. The I. It's amazing. But aside from really enjoying it. So I'm not going to get any sport, but it's Particularly, thinking, Ams through. Most complex nuanced discussion about consents. Around her sexual assault and sexual behavior is generally. The most of it is kind of Amazon meals biographical as well because Katie called creates time experienced. Something specific Thanks to the Shire. I'm but in terms of thinking about black bodies and coach at all, what he's, there's a character kwami I'm and. I mean. The representation of him I think is certainly the rest of the is it's incredibly complex and it's an again going back. Somebody asked him saying earlier that? Feels refreshing and unsurprising. When you look at the creative team behind it, it is very kind of black centric creative team. And Yeah just one of the things that. When we're talking about the lack of kind of representation that we see in coaching people of color equipped people am in I. Think kind of as well as that living a that also often as a sense that there's a very singular version of blackness, there was a singular version of Quintas that we are the embassy and so. For myself as a black man a with the character Cormet, you see this. Is. Intersection of various facets of his identity I. Think it's quite unusual in. So cultural expectation and also have. It so engages with this narrative of particular blackmail buddies and being seen as edith solves I'm threatening all. So. Never, being so vulnerable in situations and I think it just has a really slow and nice kind of nuanced say on that thing that's minded pop culture and recommendation I. think that's the second time that let's mentioned mysterious. Of I'm just compro- An high specialty shows are. Recovering recovering they do mean so much. Then mean someone from areas You know that shows not been out very long.

Factor in potentially walking got way all making. Let you say making sure that they have an in sectional and representative. Writing, group crew people who are.

Inquiry and again I think it takes somebody that is you know somebody like coal I think she's a real game changer because nobody. It's a bright thing but actually she's got the Hill. She's got the cultural kind of climate to be able to do that I think the fact that ages didn't respect correct expect her to wield that she had gone through Allen says as much as well. These are the people who she is paid your and then not. Of the irony is like. It benefits damage. She gets a better deal because they get percentage and yes I the lack of belief in hatch is so strong. At the belief in the industry that says, this is how it is. We only pay this amount will only because your block voice and even though we would probably give away adults the one who's Going to do that with you I'm we'll be able to get away with that.

Celebration of blackness. And Thinking about. The use of course I'm the joy and the use of excellence as as useful in themselves. But also they out, they offer resistance I am this guy's back to the discussion about Harry even right Sir North Thinking about the At black speech will. Even in the late nineteen sixties and.

So celebrate the specificities of blackness and all being passive kudrow banquets from my Different iterations. So that's when my wife is gathering more generally, and I will say as it can caveats to break the vice autos, they are sick by critical. report drag race on Lap Panther I. Just because we love something doesn't mean we don't want it to improve. Yeah. Absolutely I notice I, mean like I am kind of just by nature cry contrary person. I do I generally like I like having something that I love but also. But it's not quite perfect that something that next did you see the film the lock money? San Francisco because he has that phrase where there were these people on the trolley criticizing some from Cisco and he's like, do you love it because if you don't love it, you don't get the right to criticize that. Something you feel. So passionately about that, you are then looping back round to go. Yes it's this. Amazing. Amazing but these rituals. Burials. Yeah I can see that I mean I definitely think that like I still resent right to critique things I hate. Funny. Did it like yeah? It's like. Watching something I. Know I'm probably GONNA. To just you know and sometimes just checking but my. Barometer is what right whereas a? Priceless thing sometimes. Question for you. You said that when you were doing your. Research you felt like it was A. You will walking through some stuff. I personally when I'm writing things will dip making training sessions and stuff like I am. I find incredibly exhausting because of those same reasons because I find myself. having Theresa things I know to be trailing but the. Day the most of. It is and then. Put that down on paper in continuously owner, cover all kind of deal with it. It's really exhausting how to you and this could be good for any any of listeners out there who? both guys similar things like how do you make sure that you don't but out when you're doing that kid if it was someone who wasn't. Emotionally. Invested in the same way that say we are because we are. Both people of color with his career like when we learn about these things in history, it's very visceral I find it very miserable of very. Almost. Like a legitimately I knew this also researching it is very difficult. Actually seeking out these negative opinions about yourself. Israelis physically. Really strange thing to do. When the all over the world and we don't really have to seek them out so. Yeah I'm. Kind of When you're doing your inside. So. I'm not sure I have the answer to how to avoid back. And I mean I think something that I found is really helpful both in terms of not kind of reaching a point of exhaustion van out with the material but also in terms of just supplementing. Sinking as to whatever primarily as somebody that so teaches on researches is to think about going to the material I would presents in a seminar for example, how a particular suit my a seminar incident I don't have any interested. When it's related to to consult I'm lacking on I, find that it's good to to think about how should talk about that stuff in very different contexts. So for me I mean with. Mice OPEC research now as I said a lot of that. So working through passenger. was really just. Kind of figuring out some of the obstacles threatened say one of the questions that I kind of I think not even consciously had struggled with was. I didn't understand the kind of. The ways that blackness can be. Exotic sized and seen in this very source. Narrow way that's kind of feels like get positive but also can be. So I'm kind of repudiated. Right. So how is it that? Somebody can. Kind of a crude example, but somebody can complement you in very uncomfortable ways on like the United States particularly turn of your skin, all the texture of your hair. which which feels the positive because it feels like it's a component but. Like. There's always there's. A difference in you you like that starts the problem. With they say that to someone if that race kind of what you need to. Is it like God Looks Poodle Is it. You know I feel like you know you'll doing today as Mary. Yes. I never really. Yeah. Look. A couple of friends I do. I steal in Karen handkerchiefs. When I see them. Own Zemo, like invest in just be like you'll skit looks incredible. Hotly because I know they've been working on it and partly because it does incredible credible. But if it's a stranger, just being I've had that like. All the complete says I they. You'll skin is really nice old. You would be prayer if you'd light skin. Is Very very confusing messages. Yes sir. So so I mean, I think incomplete said you know that that sensitive? You know you freeze what's happening here. Right. Let me let me unpack this moment at. Obviously, we always have the luxury of. I'm. Sick I think questions and you know. Quite so simplistic questions. I. Think by had was that why? When we see blackness in most places to be not than seed blackness as less reviled less diminish. Just think for myself, answering questions and gave me a sensitive I think just confidence and I can't understand this a bit mall. So that enabled me I think to Ben in the marshmallow casual conversations whether with friends of color all way in mixed company. Then I kind of.

The way that the body is sort of amd disciplines and just think he of how we can solve. Recognize, existing hierarchies power the Carolina around and issues. Why density? How.

And as just because of the kind of. It being at finally issue. Initially, was thinking about prides. And just one of the interesting things that I found in discussions around Hikes Osceola pride celebrations are now did so. Because a endemic and so know this. I think a lot of people look at everything kind of leaving online as a sense of loss and it's a that we taught me up and you know that weakness often thing about the kind of at least digital's vices as is being less than ams of important events and in terms of thinking about. So pride events and the issues one around them generally being very why. I'm a lot of prides involving the police as well because of being lodged optic events and say something that I found was surprising to to white people soaking. Was I was saying that one of the benefits of having digital pride events is that Anyone that's gonNA generally profiled object of niece suddenly has that absence the when not worry when way from his amy's new firming social spaces which have this air about being pray for being targeted being victims of violence in the ways that impasse impact events often has and so it's we're an interesting moment right where. A. Lot of kind of you know individuals companies events are definitely wanting to make it seem as they thinking about anti blackness but actually when you get down into the specifics of. Experiences of backfired when people have color that seems to be a lack of commission having all right whether that's an issue that being a lack of people in power amion khanates, and Cooper boardrooms or just kind of the silage ways that people having these conversations.

It's dismissed all misconstrued or. Maybe internal intense racism. They have maybe able me like louder ever.

Yeah, it's all in the fine tuning you know, but, but it's a nice car. Yes. Will it be hard to get in the beginning? Yes. But they are not limiting production chill out. Don't pay their premium weights as on your own in order. You'll get a car eventually, the, the sweet spot is the premium, not the launch edition will depreciate. Yes, it will.

I really like fusion three sixty John mentioned hiring a tutor for fusion, three sixty on the watch and listen podcast was that experience worth it the Cam portion is intuitive. But struggled with cat. I love it. What's fusion, three sixty fusion, three sixty is a CAD program that is seeking to instead of relying on a bunch of plug ins that make assumptions and interpretations. It's basically a very intuitive CAD platform that is striving to compete with, like, solid works or like lesser rhino stuff like that. But everything through you wanna machine stuff, you want to three d print stuff, or you wanna do like high-end surface. Rendering, bad ass? It does it all within one captive own program. Cool. So instead of developing ten different little things the guys at Autodesk or saying, okay, we're gonna put a lot in this one basket was the tutor worth it, it was, but I kinda cheated, because it was like one of the lead. Engineer's who built the program who became a buddy who had enough to pay for it. So, yeah, that was worth it back to school with Rodney Dangerfield Kurt Vonnegut shows up to help him. Right. His pay, for example. So I kinda got lucky on that, but they actually have really good to Terrell's, good old university you too, man. I think for fusion, you're good to go, my only thoughts on fusion that became a big bummer, for us at work is we were doing a very large robust complicated super assembly, complete platform, for which I had to have like supercomputer thermally managed like bad shit graphic card computers to do and fusion really is not up to that task yet. I think it will be very quickly. But if you're doing something lesser than a complete motor vehicle, it's like super-quick super into it. And you just gotta get in. Into flow. It didn't seem intuitive upfront, try solid works not intuitive or Katiba. All right.

"I'm Michael Isikoff. Chief investigative correspondent for Yahoo news, and I'm Dan CLYDE, Mineta and chief of Yahoo news, Jon ward, welcome to buried treasure. Hey, guys. It's pretty cool that I'm not just on school degree. But on buried treasure. I don't have my patch. I don't I don't know. Your book is made to order for buried treasure. We look for stories from the past relevant to today. And it seems that the Kennedy versus Carter battle meets that test to the t-. Yeah, it does. I mean, it's as you mentioned it's relevant because this fight among Democrats has kind of not ever died down. It's kept going. It's been revived to different degrees and in different ways over the years, but we're definitely going to get a battle royale this coming year. And I it's been interesting to watch shared Brown kinda step out over the last few days. He talked to our own Andrew Romano about sort of pushing back some of the more pie in the sky promises that folks on the left side of the party or making. Yeah, that was a really interesting interview, and we can get to that. And some of the relevance to today's politics and a little bit. But just tell us to start what drew you to this story. Why do this book? Well, the scene that Mike read at the beginning was what drew me to the story because I. Ran into some folks who were there that night, and who were talking about it and one of them, you know, had worked on Obama's campaign and was his delegate hunter. Just a guy named Jeff Berman. He ended up being a big supporter of the book early on. And you know, you both of you have written books. You know, you need those people, you know, early on when it's just a small idea a little seedling, you need those people who are believers in the book and help you make those first few contacts, at least I did. But they were telling me the story about Carter chasing Kennedy around the stage and Kennedy being drunk, and I just didn't know a lot about the story. Honestly. And that's what intrigued me. And then I ran into a needed done a couple of minutes later. She was at this DNC meeting as well. And she told me about the way that the party you had been divided by this not just over sort of ideology or policy, but really impersonal deeply personal ways. Like there were camps that came out of this year that were hating each other for years. And years on end afterwards during a time when the party couldn't win the presidency for another twelve years so that kind of cinematic drama combined with the historical scope look to me like a good candidate for a book. And then as I got into it the backgrounds of the two guys and a contrast between them and the ways that they were on parallel tracks got into politics. I mean, they were kind of circling each other. It was just very interesting, the ideological differences were pretty clear, but what was really compelling with the personality and the human differences, which you captured you deflate so John was Kennedy drunk that night. Well, I mean, I think the odds are probably greater than fifty percent that he was Bob shrum was his longtime speechwriter and adviser, and he was with Kennedy at the Waldorf a story before they headed to the convention hall and shrum swears that Kennedy wasn't drinking. But given everything we know about Kennedy's personal life at that time, you know. Pretty good likelihood that he was definitely had a few drinks. Maybe shrum kind of splitting hairs, you know..

"Hello. We're gonna powerhouse politics. I'm ABC news chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl. And I ABC this political director recline that I hit the new human right there. Now they now. Okay. Right. We've got it. We got a very discussion. I'm very much looking forward to coming up with Jon ward good friend of mine's written this phenomenally. Interesting book about the nineteen eighty democratic primary teddy Kennedy versus Jimmy Carter and. It's just trust me some great stories and a and a and a really interesting book highly relevant to the current situation. I would argue, but I we've got some some news to get through. I wanted to touch on. What seemed to be a significant moment here in Washington when we saw the intelligence agencies released their threat assessment, and then a testify before congress about this. And what was significant what captured all the headlines is you had the nation's intelligence chiefs. The deny the director the CIA. Come out on really the key challenges of our time. And seemed to stake out positions that were if not diametrically opposed certainly not in sync with the president of the United States ISIS, Iran, North Korea Russia, China all of those areas where the president is saying one thing and his intelligence agencies intelligence advisers, the Trump administration's intelligence community is saying publicly in front of congress something much much different. It was a stark repudiation of Trumpism whether it was meant to be or not to me. It was the clearest indication yet of why you see the split emerging in the Republican foreign policy establishment on Capitol Hill because the people who are hearing this stuff directly the people that consume the intelligence briefing briefings intelligence reports besides the people at the White House when they're talking directly to the director of the or the director of national television. So the director of the FBI they're getting an entirely different portrait about the threats that are. That are posed to the United States right now up to it, including the threat or lack thereof on the US Mexico border, which somehow they didn't come up. So you know, I couple of things on this one is I think this is actually a sign of strength of our institutions first of all the the the Intel chiefs nor report actually criticizes the president, right anything. So so we should point that out. It's not like they came out and said the president's wrong x y and z it's just their assessment of the underlying facts, they did not offer policy prescriptions. But their assessments, which they don't do it's not their job. They give they give the data and the information of those that make policy but their assessments were quite different North Korea. We believe that they do not intend to give up their nuclear weapons. The president has various times suggested they really that. Yeah. Isis is defeated the president's walked that back a bit. The the report makes it clear that ISIS. It's still very much a threat you mentioned the border, which is interesting in a way of mission. They don't mention awa-. All again, their job is not to prescribe policy, but still no mention of that. And but more significantly they don't mention a threat from from our southern border until halfway through their report. It's not one of their top issue areas. And it's just shut down the government over it. Yes. Yes. And and and the president has said he may declare national emergency over this. And you can imagine if the Intel guys were to viewer to follow their description of the current threaten violent, and you were saying what were the areas we might declare an emergency on it probably wouldn't make the top ten right? So the president responded on Twitter, so which I guess is not entirely surprising..

I think there's other things out there that are in addition to a there's three or four kind of key technologies that I think are the pillars of the race for you know, what is going to be the control of the next wave. Or if you will. And you know, when you talk about artificial intelligence machine learning, I think it really gets back to the disruption allowed by the cloud. And you know, in whatever form it is. And so whatever you can do to be able to Acilitator that we've seen what? Amazon AWS is done Microsoft Google. They're all fighting for hell, they can bring value through the cloud. And so I think one of the important elements is be sure that we have the ability to take information to shipping it all to the cloud. We do. Preprocessing? So we only send to the club what's important to make it more efficient. So that you can then take those appropriate actions because I think it's like ninety eight percent of all the information that goes to the cloud. It's not ever utilize not ever analyze. So by doing that preprocessing. I think we're at the early stages of really making artificial intelligence machine learning much more innovator emerge more significant share. Okay. Right.
