I don't know i don't know you'll be your first. That's the thing. I was looking back in history in any tire history. As far as i can find no president ever went back backwards. Went back into a senate seat for house. I would love to see donald trump sitting there especially like the midst of the house. All these other people just squirming namby-pamby re 'fraidy cat republicans democrats that call themselves. Republicans donald trump looking staring them in the face. Like don't you dare vote wrong. I can just see. That would be so beautiful. There's a lot of potential for what could happen. Donald trump definitely is not out of the picture. Yeah nor nor is if we if we can make elections legal again. There's always a potential comeback twenty twenty four. But we've got to fix the election the whole election system and that's what donald trump is working on. That's what a lot of people work on. At this point it was an election. I wish i had in front of me. I lost the patriot. I had where i put it. But there's just a recent election where the age they determined that. There was a complete fraud in the election.

Cuomo Victim Charlotte Bennett Opens Up About Sexual Harassment Allegations in Raw Interview
"Very interesting now. The joe biden. Although kamala harris the leader of the i believe her caucus has yet to say anything about cuomo fascinating times we live in. Don't we joe biden is said. Oh yeah no need to have an investigation while there were two women that accused joe biden. One woman by the name of lucy florez another by the name of tara reade tara reade in a recent interview actually said that a biden aide told her we will blanking destroy you. Well sounds a little bit. Like ron kim statement about andrew cuomo but the issue is real and it seems like the i believe her caucus only become believers. If it's a republican that they're accusing for whatever political purposes. They are gender they have at the time and we saw what happened in the cavenaugh case. That's why i'm consistent. I don't rush the judgment and we believe in due process anyway. One of the accusers charlotte bennett. Is we talked about earlier today. Went on cbs news and talked about governor cuomo and what she believed he was trying to do and everybody that i've talked to bell choose extremely credible. Here's how it went down governor. Cuomo said that he has never propositioned anybody. Do you believe that he was propositioning. You yes for what sex. The pandemic was obviously stressful for all of us and he was on tv nearly every day talking about it here on book good so you think all this national attention may have emboldened him absolutely. I think he felt like he was untouchable. In a lot of ways then it says their professional relationship took a turn on may fifteenth when she alleges. The governor started asking her about her love. Life and then became fixated repeating over and over again. History is a sexual assault survivor. So he goes. You were raped. you were raped. You were raped and abused and assaulted. another key. encounter happened on june fifth. When bennett says she was called into cuomo's office to take dictation and he told her to turn off the tape recorder and then he explains at that point that he is looking for a girlfriend. He's lonely he's tired. You've just finished dictation and the governor is telling you he's lonely and looking for a relationship yes he asked if i had trouble enjoying being with someone because of my drama. This seems highly inappropriate. Yeah the governor. Asked me if i was sensitive fantasy in his office yes during the workday you have been quoted as saying that he also asked you about. If you've ever been with an older man. Yeah he asked me. If age difference mattered. He also explained that he was fine with anyone over twenty two. And how old are you. Twenty five what were you thinking. He's asking you these questions. I thought he's trying to sleep with me. The governor is trying to sleep with me. And i'm deeply uncomfortable and have to get out of this room as soon as possible and to be clear. What made you think that he was trying to sleep with you without explicitly saying it. He implied to me. That i was old enough for him and he was lonely. How did you respond to those questions. I responded honestly. And when i was even thinking of coming forward i think that was where i held the most shame and that like i really was uncomfortable. Why did you feel shame. I feel like people the onus on the woman to shut that conversation down by answering. I was somehow engaging in that or enabling it when in fact i was just terrified. People will watch this and say why didn't you get up and leave. It didn't feel like i had a choice. He's your boss is my boss. He's everyone's boss. Governor cuomo said in a statement that what he said may have been misinterpreted. Did you misinterpret him. No i understood him out in clear just didn't go the way he planned. I never know at the time. I was making anyone feel uncomfortable. Did you watch governor. cuomo's apology it's not an apology. It's not an issue of my feelings. It's an issue of his actions. The fact is that he was sexually harassing me and he has not apologized for sexually harassing me. And he can't even use my name.

This can't be part of this particular relief and stimulus package. Yes they will come back at this. They absolutely will for the reasons we're all talking about. This is a perfect alignment of their political ideals. Their political philosophy and really popular issue in florida. This last election cyber floridians were voting for donald trump. more than sixty percent of them voted for the minimum wage to go up in that state to fifteen dollars by twenty twenty six and florida's not a purple state florida's kinda reddish. Actually and so. This is a winner. this big winning issue over economically. Because yes. I'm sorry but that eventually whatever that number is that you cited their debt. Twenty seven trillion.

Kamala Harris breaks Senate tie to begin COVID-19 relief package debate
"Radio Senate formally moving ahead with the debate on the sweeping stimulus bill, but it was a close one. Michael Morning required a tiebreaker vote yet to have the vice president Kamila Harris, come in, just to get this thing underway to begin the process of debate there in the Senate, so she had to come in breaking 50 50 tired events The bill now the Senate is engaged in what I'll call a marathon effort. To take up President Biden's $1.9 Trillion pandemic relief bill expected to go through the weekend pretty easily here, a zoo chamber is is hearing the debate by hearing debate. I mean, they haven't even gotten to the debate part yet. I mean that they have spent the last 12 hours because Senator Ron Johnson pushed for all 628 pages of the legislation to be read out loud. On the grounds that there should be transparency and what's in it. Now it's not. Every senator has the right on either side of the aisle to make that request and to have things read out. As far as legislation goes, it just doesn't happen very often. And when it does, it's looked at largely as a delay tactic again. In this case, 628 pages of legislation buys I understood it took about 12 hours. It started around 3 20 yesterday afternoon and listen, it wasn't like every member of the Senate was glued to their seats to take notes on how this was all going to go down. In fact, as soon as the reading began, you saw Kamila Harris had to call for an order in the Senate because people were just hopping walking around, leaving. That's just the way this is. It's It's meant to be a delay tactic. But what is clear here is that they finished up that reading portion. It is about to begin the 20 hour debate session Now, that was just a time killer to get to the 20 hour debate session here, Tony, which is going to take place and this is where lawmakers are gonna have 20 hours under the reconciliation rules. To make the argument for what they have seen or heard in this Billa's far as the debate goes, then you're going to have the amendment voting session called Vote a Rama that usually will be about the serious of issues within that piece of legislation, but it could include, um any sort of vote on a contentious subject just literally back to back to back to back votes. That will last probably into the wee hours of the morning. And then when that's done, you have the final vote on this piece of legislation. And if it is approved in the Senate that will get sent back to the house, where the House will have to approve it, And then it could be sent to President Biden's desk for his signature. Well, you know, as well as I do that in this becomes partisan. That all bills are this bill the highway bill or it's the Cove in 19 Bill, or it's the stimulus package recovered 19 bill, but it does have a lot of other things in there. That to me personally Forget Democrat Republican. It's just frustrating that you can't get clean bills straight out just to help the American people with all the things we're gonna be tight. And so I understand. You know Ron Johnson and I'm not a big fan, but I'd like to find out more than lieutenant, I, You know, I don't people understood how bills get passed until Nancy Plus said. We've got to pass the bill, see what's in it, And that was kind of oi opening for a lot of Americans because you know they don't. They don't know the procedures a lot of time, and I think that that's part of the key to this is first of all available online. The bill's piece of legislation itself is they're all senators had a hard copy of it. So the reading it out loud was just moved to this sort of the late actor here, but the end of the day you're right. And with that there have been a lot of changes made they Hold out this massive amount of money to Nancy Pelosi was looking to get for transit system in San Francisco. This bridge to be built between New York and Canada, has been pulled out of the bill. The minimum wage portion of $15 an hour has been pulled out of the bill and also for moderate Democrats who were concerned about this. There's a streamlining here of who's going to get stimulus payments. Now, anybody earning $75,000 or less will still get their $1400 payment. But now there's a phase out faster that goes between 75,000 and $80,000 a year. So if you made $80,000 a year or couples making $1,660,000 a year. You're no longer qualifying for any stimulus, and that will affect around 11.8

"Welcome to it. Everybody on what a friday it is. Oh my goodness. There's so much going on and i thought today was going to be a day when you know there wasn't a lot happening and i say that because there was supposed to be the voter rama happening in the senate today where amendment after amendment after amendment on the covid relief bill.

"kamala" Discussed on The Young Turks
"In the house actually have really amazing okay and is going to give you the story. I'm gonna give you the hype. Because i'm super excited. Well twenty-three progressives in the house of representatives has signed a letter urging vice president kamala harris to overrule the unelected senate parliamentarian who recommended stripping the coronavirus relief bill of the proposal to increase the federal minimum wage. To fifteen dollars an hour. Now representative roca argued. That harris as the presiding. Senator has the power to do this. Listen my bad. I have greg so roe conn said this. Sorry about that guys. That was my mistake. I am not on my game today. But i will fix it. So this sorokina said he says quote. We believe that the bill. The president signs must include. The house passed minimum wage legislation. This is the moment to get this done. And it is within our control. The letter itself by the way said this eighty one million people cast their ballots to elect you meaning joe biden on a platform that called for fifteen dollars an hour minimum wage. We urge you to keep that promise. We must act now to prevent tens of millions of hardworking americans from being underpaid any longer and just to give you an idea of how much of an impact this would have on people's lives jank fifteen dollars an hour for the federal minimum wage would increase the wages of thirty two million workers a majority of whom currently obviously live below the poverty line because the previous federal minimum wage. The one that is in has been implemented is only seven dollars and twenty five cents. Which is not. It's not even a minimum wage. That is a starvation wage. That's why we have so many people in this country who end up working fulltime jobs but still find themselves homeless because it's not enough money To be able to pay your rent to be able to buy groceries you have people living in their cars while at the same time working fulltime jobs at some of the biggest companies in this country. Yeah so i i. I should also note that it would be ninety. Two billion dollar pay increase per year for those thirty two million americans so this a giant chamber of commerce hates it and they're using every politician they have to try to kill it while you. You don't notice right because they don't wanna pay you more. They want to give that to their executives and their shareholders so That's otherwise this would be a no-brainer. Well over two thirds of the country. Want this eighty three percent of the country including every demographic says that We need to increase the minimum wage. I mean how much more popular does it have to be the only reason why we're even having this. Debate is because big. Corporate donors have told not just republicans but democrats. You are not allowed to do this. That's why i love the fightback from the house. Progressives at twenty three of them all of every one of them that signed is american. Hero honestly led by the justice democrats. They're all in their ro. Khanna is leading the charge. I want to give you another from road because it's so important. He said we've been asked politely. But firmly to compromise on nearly all of our principles and goals not this time. We overrule the senate parliamentarian. We are condoning poverty wages for millions of americans. That's why am leading my colleagues. In urging the biden administration lean on the clear precedent and overall dismiss guided decision. Give america raise there. You go ro khanna. I ever justice democrat and he did it when he was an incumbent. He didn't have to do it. A organiz this letter in great quotes from corey bush. Ilhan omar rashid to lead jamaal. Bowman you name it and jamaal bowman corey. Bush make a great point. This affects african americans and latinos more than anyone else so now the binding administration and kamala harris are gonna turn around and go. No we care about the parliamentarian more than we care about you guys and look the reason. Why do we never win is because there's never any pushback in washington for progressives and now they're pushing back and going no we're just not gonna let you get away with it. Bernie's got to put it in the bill and then comma harris as the presiding officer as these other. Legislators are pointing out as complete authority to put it in the bill. If she doesn't it's the parliamentarians fall is not the republicans filter. Mitch mcconnell's fault it's commonly harris's fault on the other hand by the way and they point to out she could be the hero bernie puts it in the bill. He's a hero for bringing it all the way here and putting it in the bill which hasn't happened yet they come. A harris comes in and saves. the day is the presiding officer. She becomes a hero. So where's the downside. I mean come on. Harris is planning on running for president. Yes what are you doing. What are you doing. What are you doing you really. You think you're going to run for president and this won't come back to bite you. of course it will. She ran her presidential campaign during the last democratic primaries on this idea that she's very progressive that she wants to fight for a fifteen dollars an hour minimum wage. And that's really the other part of the story. That's so infuriating. They all think we're suckers. They all think that they can just lie to us that they can campaign on proposals. That they know is incredibly popular with people. I mean florida a red state. Just pass a federal a minimum wage hike through ballot initiative. Sixty one percent of floridians voted to increase the federal minimum wage. This is something that's popular on both sides of the aisle because again it doesn't matter if you're a democrat or republican liberal conservative progressive. We're all as workers living under this broke in unequal system. Where we sit back and watch people get paid starvation wages as they're working full-time and living in the back of their trucks because they can't afford at the same time you have jeff bezos. Horno that wealth. You have other corporate ceos horning all all their wealth. You have a silicon valley. Ceos making a ton of money during the coronavirus pandemic there is no excuse to not include that provision in the coronavirus relief. Bill there's no excuse for kamla harris to not overrule the parliamentarian. And then the third part of all of this is you guys know is to show up to west virginia show up to arizona and start rallying for this because you have kirsten cinema and joe manchin pretending as if a fifteen dollars an hour. Minimum wage hike is not popular. You better damn believe it is popular So this is. This is a bit of fight. It's more than just one thing that we need to do. We need to ensure that it's in that final bill. We need to ensure that comma harris does the right thing and and overrule the parliamentarian and then we got to make sure that joe mansion and kirstin cinemanow that if they vote against a fifteen dollars an hour minimum wage. It will come back to haunt them as well when they're ready to run for reelection so i want to explain the process a little bit better because is so important and you can begin to see why this is very doable. So we're doing hashtag. Don't kill bernie bernie hasn't even in the billion that's unfortunately step one. It should be fortunately step one. So then you move on to. Which is what these legislators are doing. Which is pressuring comma harris. The answer. anna's question why is even a hard question harris. Who's going to run in two thousand twenty four because she's thinking she could kill it without anyone noticing and that way she gets credit from her donors and they go. Brian dot com. We'll give you more money for killing it without anybody. And then she doesn't have to pay a price with the voters but what the justice democrats other. Progressives in in the house are saying is no. We're not gonna let you get away with it. You're gonna kill it..

"Right because there's no statement at all right now bernie sanders saying he's gonna put it in the bill so you can look that up you could ask any reporter or their salt on it. It is currently not in their plans. I think he's going to turn around. I think you guys affected him a lot. And i love you for doing that. But right now he hasn't yet so that's just the reality. I'm trying to get past step one. I can't believe where it step one because we got to step two which is pressured. kabul harris. Did you mean it or didn't you mean it. And that's and guys harris rules right way. She has complete power and discretion to rule the right way then. The republicans likely need sixty votes to block it. You know what that means. That means relatively easy to win. We can actually win on this. So let's go do that right now. So sign the petition. Use the hashtag. Include add bernie sanders. Make sure you get them the message we love you. But you've got to do this. This is nowhere near optional. Or let's get another good news on the same topic all right so we do have a little bit of good news. So let's get to that. So senior democrats in the senate are luckily backing off of their disastrous plan. B to pressure employers to pay their workers. Fifteen dollars an hour minimum wage. Now this was the plan. B following word that the senate parliamentarian and unelected individual had decided that the fifteen dollars an hour minimum wage hike could not be included in the coronavirus. Relief package Because it doesn't pass something known as the byrd rule. Now that's something that is incredibly relevant people in this country don't care they want a federal minimum wage hike. And it's something that can easily be overruled by the person who presides over the senate which is comma harris. It's a non binding opinion by an unelected person in the senate referred to as the senate parliamentarian she can be overruled but before we even had a chance to discuss that brady sanders. And ron wyden in the senate Had their own plan be ready now. They're backing off of that. Plan b because it is disastrous. Let me tell you what the details are so. After the senate parliamentarian said that fifteen dollars an hour For the minimum wage hike was inadmissible the rules senate finance chair. Ron wyden and senate budget share bernie. Sanders said that they would instead seek to add tax penalties on large corporations. That fail to pay a fifteen dollars. An hour minimum wage or a fifty dollar an hour wage. I should say now. They're backing off of it. Because experts have weighed in and they said well. There's actually some pretty significant loopholes here for instance. Large employers can very easily reclassified their employees as contractors. Which would indicate that they could skirt the tax penalties for not paying these workers. Fifteen dollars an hour. And i'm glad they're backing off of that. Because the fact that they immediately went to this pretty sad pathetic plan b. shows that there was at least in the short term this idea of abandoning fifteen dollars an hour as a provision in the coronavirus relief package. That does not need to happen. Let's be absolutely clear that does not need to happen. Kamala harris can overrule the senate parliamentarian. there is going to be a bit of a fight on that though because biden's top economic advisor. Brian dece has said over the weekend. Australian on several interviews. What you're about to hear. Are we think that through a.
Vice President Kamala Harris honors visionaries at Black History Month event in Washington DC
"President Kamila Harris was the keynote speaker at Maryland's virtual annual Black History Month celebration hosted by House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer. Speaking from the Eisenhower Executive office Building next door to the White House, the VP paid tribute to the heroes of black history. And delivered words of encouragement for current and future generations. I think of history in the context of a relay brace right a relay race with each generation running their course. And then passing the baton to the next. And so The baton is now in our hands. And what matters is how well we run our portion of the race. Vice President Harris is the first woman and the first woman of color to win the vice presidency.
Senate Democrats move immediately to "Plan B" on minimum wage
"Yesterday we told you That the parliamentarian head ruled that the dollar minimum wage does not pass muster for reconciliation and must be taken out of a covid relief. Bill now We clarified unlike most of the media. That the parliamentary and actually has no power whatsoever It is just give an advisory opinion is not an actual ruling. The person who does the ruling is actually the presiding chair of the senate was normally is the vice president so comma. Harris is going to have a huge part in this conversation now wants the parliamentarian gave her so called ruling. All the democrats immediately gave up on fifteen dollars minimum wage as things stand now they are going to be taking that provision is going to be taken out of the bill and we will not get fifteen dollar minimum wage for at least four years now. There is a way to prevent it. There are four steps here. I'm going to walk through all four steps and you will see that if we do this. It's actually very doable. To keep it in the bill and to actually win on this issue but it requires courage from progressives and then Requires us to put public pressure on some of our allies and then eventually to the biden administration and sure so step one is unfortunately right now the most important step and where we're going to have to call out bernie sanders bernie sanders. Is the chair of the budget committee. The chair of the budget committee the signs. What is in the kobe. Relief bill bernie sanders. Current plan is to take fifteen dollars minimum wage out of the covid relief. Bill that is a terrible idea. He should not do that. If corporate democrats are going to vote against let them vote against it but doing it on their behalf. i cannot overstate. What a bad idea that is in that scenario that right now is what is going to happen unless we change it together bernie would kill the fifteen dollar minimum wage on behalf of joe manchin and joe by. He should not do that. So that's this is step one. I'm going to get to the other steps in a second guys. I need you to immediately participate. We've got a campaign we've got a partition and and we've got hashtags. We must do all of the above and the campaign is called. Don't kill it bernie because yes step one indisputably. It is a matter of fact. Is that the budget chair decides if it goes in the bill that is bernie sanders. That was the whole point of him being budget share. If he's going to take out. Fifteen dollar minimum wage will take out every provision the joe manchin and joe biden are opposed to that means we will get no progressive priorities past none. The fifteen dollars. Minimum wage was literally the bare minimum. It was the first ask of progressives so bernie. You've got to keep it in the bill because if he does not keep it in the bill. It's over that hashtag fight for fifteen. There is no more fight. That means progressive surrender. I'm being honest with you. Guys our job is to do the news. Those are the facts of how this process works so go to the petition. All right and here. Let's put it up for you guys and it's simply called. Don't kill it bernie. And what is saying is we don. T have a clear message. Don't take it out of the bill. It's one hundred percent your call on whether you keep it in the bill or take it out of the bill. Do not do that because if you take it out of the bill and you kill it then we will not be able to get back to it for four long years and there's no reason for it so and and if you're tweeting about this at all please use hashtag. Don't kill it bernie. Because we must get senator sanders to turn around. There are no other steps if he takes it out of the bill now if he keeps it in the bill now let me walk you through how we could actually win on this step two would be since it's in the bill. The presiding officer of the senate would have to rule to take it out of the bill. So kamala harris who in her role as the vp would normally be the presiding officer. The senate would have to actively vote with republicans or side with republicans the and the parliamentarian for what it's worth again. The parliamentarian has no vote. No power just gave a rando opinion on what they think they should do it. The republicans would never care about it. It it has no force of law at all. in fact it's being used as an excuse by kamla harris show schumer and the others to kill a provision. They were never in favor of so. Then we have to put pressure on comma harris to not side with mitch mcconnell. Can we do that. Yes yes we can definitely do that. If chuck schumer wants to protect com la- harris and he puts another senator in as the presiding officer. Will they will put pressure on chuck schumer. Would you like to continue to be the senator from new york. There are a lot of progressives in new york very very strong. Progressives in new york that could easily take that seat not easily but that could certainly have a shot at taking that seat. So now here's the most part steps three if she decides to take it out of the bill. There's nothing we can do about it comma harrison show schumer will then actively be saying okay. We killed the fifteen dollar minimum wage because we never wanted in the first place but if we get past that step and go. You win you win. We're keeping it in the bill. Then mitch. Mcconnell would object. Mitch mcconnell would then say. I want to appeal the ruling of the chair. Now here's a great news. Since joe manchin a cinema cap the filibuster and so two joe biden. They would need sixty votes to overrule the chair. So that means they need to break our filibuster to overrule the ruling of the chair. They're not gonna get sixty votes. We win okay. There is a separate more but understand before we go to step four step. Four is awesome but right now you understand how simple it is with. Depression brought to keep it in the bill. We have to pressure mention not mansion comma harris and chuck schumer to not side with republicans. Why god is a progressive movement. If we can't do that what can we do. Do we have any power or don't we have any power. Were about to find out. And then step for is if the republicans cannot break the filibuster. The mcconnell has one last option and this is wonderfully ironic. He would have to ask for fifty vote margin and straight up and down. Vote to kill the filibuster in regards to the votes of the presiding chair of the senate now mansion cinema have said that and biden said that the filibuster is the most precious thing in the world to them. So what are they going to. Now turn around just to make sure you don't get higher wages and they're gonna vote to kill the filibuster in this regard. I mean you would be the most spectacularly hypocritical thing they have ever done and they've done some pretty hypocritical fix so you put them in an near impossible situation and it is incredibly doable but step one is do not surrender. Guys one last thing before we go to john and jordan. There's ninety two billion dollars online. This would be a pay raise for about thirty million americans and to the tune of ninety two billion dollars every single year the reason why biden mansion and the republicans don't want to do it is because the chamber of commerce is dead set against it they are those business interests are giant donors to both the republican party and the democratic party. And those donors are saying. I wanna keep the ninety two billion dollars. I want to give it to my workers. I want to keep their wages incredibly low now go do my bidding. And they do now. Bernie is not in that camp. But he's getting pressure from the other democrats to take it out of the bill. We in a sense have to back them up by saying bernie. We do not agree. We do not agree. Don't kill it bernie. Don't kill it

VP Kamala Harris believes teachers must be prioritized for COVID-19 vaccinations
"We're back now with vice president. Khama harris on the battle to reopen schools. Does she agree with the. Cdc's plan and do teachers need to be vaccinated. I she spoke one on one with savannah. Guthrie let's talk about schools at. We got a lot of parents watching right now. The cdc few days ago finally put out some long awaited guidance on how schools could safely reopen. But here's the thing. They tied it directly to the rate of infection in any given community. And i'm gonna put a map up because if schools were to follow that right now. Ninety percent of the county's ninety percent of the schools would not be able to the cdc's own metric. Was it a mistake for the cdc to connect school reopening to how much infection. There isn't a community. Well let's i say this that in the last four weeks schools are opening every week more schools are opening and it is because we are supplementing. What needs to happen around the vaccinations getting into two states. But also because folks are. We're seeing progress. But what about that. Cdc guidance then that's that's the question. Well so here's the thing. What the cdc. What they have recommended are exactly that recommendations about how to reopen safely if they've been closed how to stay open if they'd been opened and so the recommendations. What again needs to happen. Around social distancing handwashing mask wearing but the point is that we all want our kids to get back to school as quickly as possible and safely as possible. The cdc has said it is not a prerequisite for teachers to be vaccinated for them to go back to school but many teachers are of going back to school. Can you reassure teachers. Who are listening right now that it is safe for them to go back to school even if they are not vaccinated if these public health measures like distancing and masks are being implemented so first of all let me just say this and the president has said it and we're all really clear. Teachers should be priority. Teachers should be a priority. I believe that twenty two states. I believe have prioritized but each is in terms of stating 'cause it's safe for them well. I think that we have to decide if we can put in place safe measures. This is why it's so important. We pass the american rescue plan. It's going to be safe for schools to reopen when we can get our schools. The infrastructure needs like helping them with their ventilation systems helping them create social distancing with with barriers. The things that are necessary to get them back opening a safe way so savannah after that interview. I understand late today. The white house clarified. That's right it's spokesperson. Said the vice president and the president agree. Vaccinations are not a requirement for teachers to return. It is the white preference that teachers get priority but that lester is up to the
VP Harris casts tie-breaker vote in Senate progressing stimulus bill
"The Senate passed a budget resolution after a 15 hour marathon session known as a vote a Rama. It ended with Vice President Kamala Harris, casting her first tie breaking vote of the Biden administration. Passing the budget measures sets the stage for Democrats to move forward with Biden's coronavirus relief plan without Republican support. NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell joins us now and Kelsey Walk us through what happened last night in the Senate and into the early morning. So this whole process known as a vote A Rama is a normal part of getting a budget passed and the very first step in using the procedural tool that Democrats want to use to pass the coronavirus aid is passing a budget. Down that also involves up just an endless string of amendments. Basically, any senator can offer basically on the amendment as often as they want and as long as they want until they get tired. The thing about it, though, is most of the amendments that get past are nonbinding, meaning that they end up having almost no no real impact on whatever legislation is to come. So we went through this long ritual, this long process to set up what will be now the committee work. So all of the committees that are named in this budget resolution will start to get to work on writing an actual covert, really fill a thing that could be enacted into law. And speaking of those amendments, Republicans and even some Democrats have suggested limiting Biden's proposed $1400 direct checks to a smaller group of people. Are there any details yet? About who could be excluded from that relief and what the income threshold might be. We don't really know for sure yet, because, like I said the committee's haven't actually started doing their work. What we do know is that there is some appetite, including among Democrats to make sure that those checks are targeted more. There have been some arguments that people who are making more than is may be necessary to To need an additional influx of cash. But those people have been receiving tax and there's an effort to kind of parrot down to make sure that as Republicans say it is targeted relief Now there is a debate about who really qualifies as being too high of an income to require such stimulus on I think we're going to be seeing that play out over the next several weeks. And I think the fact that there was an amendment on this issue that it got debate and that you know, it's indicates that this is something that both sides really care about, which means that it is most likely to have a really serious conversation that could drag out for at least the duration of the time that this isn't committees. I see. I see. And did we learn anything more during this process last night about the fate of a plan to raise the federal minimum wage to 15 bucks an hour. We do know that this is another place where there is, You know some disagreement among Democrats about the fate of the $15 minimum, which some Democrats say that $15 is just not What it should be across the country. They say that maybe in some cities in jurisdictions $15 is a reasonable minimum wage. But they say that other places in the country that doesn't need to be quite that high. Now President Biden has said that it needs to be part of the package. Bernie Sanders, the Budget committee chairman, says that that needs to be part of the package, so this could be one of those issues. That really drags Congress into a fight we've seen with budget reconciliations process that they're using that little fights over things that are important policies to some members can drag down entire bills, and this is a policy that is very important to a lot of people. So it could be one of those issues that we see people fighting about for the next several weeks. Kelsey. I spoke with Senator Tim Kaine earlier this week. And he tried to make the point that this budget reconciliation process could still be bipartisan. Even though a final bill likely isn't going to require any Republican support based on what you saw last night. Is that true? Are Republicans having much of a say in this process? That is technically true. There have been bipartisan reconciliation bills in the past, but you know in this situation Republicans air starting out at about $600 billion, and Democrats are talking about $1.9 trillion. Bridging that gap and finding bipartisanship on such a big divide would be very difficult to come by. NPR's Kelsey Snell. Thank you so much. Thanks for having me.
The Power of Black Female Voters With Marcia Chatelain
"I recently wrote in forbes about how kamala harris may be able to heal the wounds between black women and white women but i defer to our terrific yesterday on these issues. I'd like you to meet dr. Marcia chatelaine a provost distinguished associate professor of history and african american studies at georgetown university here in washington dc. She's a scholar of american life and culture previously. She was an assistant professor of honors in african american studies at the university of oklahoma in norman. She earned her. Phd at brown university and her undergraduate studies at the university of missouri columbia in journalism and religious studies fellow aspiring journalists. They go. Marsha was a terrific expert featured in the recent pbs series. The vote on how women fought for and won the right to vote over an eighty year struggle or more welcomed green connections radio. Marcia thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. Oh you're welcome. You're welcome so our start in the heart of this issue. As i said in my introduction i've understood the black and white women had a kind of love hate relationship if you will during the suffrage battles as i understand it. Black women wanted white women to include abolition in their struggle. But the white women leaders believe the combining the two would keep the legislation from. What is your take on it. Tell us the truth. Because you're the historian so the issue at hand between abolition and suffrage are deeply tied. And that's because a number of figures in the suffrage movement were first activists in the fight against slavery and i think the poignancy of the battle for women's suffrage was the fact that many of the white women who were at the lead of the suffrage movement were anti-slavery and they had supported. Abolitionist may have believed that there was a moral reason to end the system of slavery but when it came to suffrage they were divided over the issue of universal suffrage Some do not believe that black women white men should equally have the vote. Some did not believe that black men and black women should have the vote. So i think that the suffrage movement really exposes the limitations of racial solidarity even among people who were on the right side of history one issue were not able to transfer that sense of grace to the issue of suffrage. And that's where you see the fault lines. In the suffrage movement really emerged from it was the fact that they did not want include african american women visibly or prominently or ideologically in their fight for the right to vote because they believed that it would degrade the quality of the vote of degrade the preciousness of the right and a number of these women again. Even though they were morally opposed to slavery they would not immune from white supremacist ideas. Okay so there's so much to unpack in there. You said something really interesting you said and i paraphrase of course but the the the divisions over the vote represented larger divisions in the racial schisms. If you will Racial solidarity behind the vote. Yes so one of the things that i think. A lot of people don't understand from how they're taught history is that we often think of the issue of slavery as one in which people were either pro or anti and it's often presented as a matter of north versus south union versus confederacy. But if you look at the movement to end slavery and look at abolitionists. They all had very different ideas of what happens next. They knew that slavery is a scourge on the nation. But they didn't agree on. What would it mean for african americans to be elevated to the level of status rather the level of a citizen and what that status should mean and so there were people who were abolitionists but they were segregationists. There were abolitionists who believed that african americans should be repatriated to colonies in africa. They were people who believed in complete and total social equality in some people believed in some level of social quality but not marriage and so those debates among the abolitionist movement i think are very much mirrored in the debate among white selfridge's who should get the vote i who should be allowed to vote. And what measures should be taken in order to ensure their desired goals
Washington, DC Statehood Bill Introduced By Senate Democrats
"Now you know this has been on the wish list of democrats for quite some time along with a promoting of puerto rico to statehood as well. Now that's compensation for a different time. But you had senator tom carper. He's democrat out of delaware leading over three dozen of his democrat colleagues to introduce companion bill for washington dc statehood gesture on tuesday. Now remember a similar. Bill passed the house last year. Now will face well pretty much. A democrat controlled senate to determine if dc will become the fifty first state but is that even possible. Well i found this piece. I pulled this back in early january out of the washington post. And it's pretty indepth piece about dc statehood. Bottom line is these. Dc statehood still faces a number of high hurdles not only in the narrowly divided senate but yes in public opinion as well. Think about this. A two thousand nine thousand nine gallup poll found that nearly two-thirds of us opposed dc statehood. So why is in dc already a state. well we need to look at the constitution washington. Dc's founding is enshrined in the constitution which provides that the district not exceeding the constitution. Not exceeding ten miles. Square would become the seat of the government of the united states now for a brief period of time after the city's creation back in seventeen ninety residents -joyed voting rights and were allowed to cast ballots as residents of maryland or virginia but those rights ended shortly after congress moved into town and the new capital in eighteen hundred and pass the district of columbia organic act of eighteen. O one the act stripped dc residents of their rights to vote in all federal elections including for president and gave congress oversight of the city. Have you ever seen a dc washing a plate license plate. You know what it says you know with. The slogan is taxation without representation. Now the district was not afforded presidential electors until the passage of the twenty-third amendment. Back in one thousand. Nine hundred sixty one. Its residents didn't get a non voting delegates in the house until nineteen seventy so begs the question. How can congress change this well. Those opposed to making dc estate have argued that statehood for dc can't happen without a constitutional amendment. They say that the founders intended the entire district to serve as the seat of federal government not as state but legislation put forth by non voting delegate. Eleanor holmes norton every year since nineteen ninety-one would not eliminate the seat of government that the constitution calls for in stead her bill which shrink the national capital to a small complex of federal buildings while allowing the rest of the district to become a state proponents of statehood for their part argue that this plan preserves federal enclave. Whose only requirement is that. It can't exceed ten square miles and escapes the need for a constitutional amendment. Nothing simple as that outstanding questions remain over. What would happen to the three electoral college votes. Currently afforded to the district when it becomes a smaller that role enclave. And some have wondered whether the twenty-third amendment would have to be repealed. So that the few residents of the federal enclave namely we're talking about those residing at sixteen hundred pennsylvania avenue don't retain them so what needs to happen for dc to become state. Well the bill to make these estate obviously has enough supports in the house to pass again and jordi leader steny hoyer pledged to bring it to vote with backing from speaker. Nancy pelosi by your indeed even though the senate is pretty evenly split. Well let's just say it's a tough road to hoe in the senate democrats occupy half the seats in that chambers. Thanks to the victories of ossoff and wore knock In georgia both of whom support would no surprise there. And then you've got vice president. Kamala harris in this fifty fifty split in the senate able to cast the tie breaking boat and she liked biden supports
The EU doesn't trust its citizens data in the hands of the U.S.
"With all the big crises facing america. It's surprising to privacy. So high on president biden's agenda but in his first week in office he already appointed someone to negotiate with the european union on how personal information is moved between europe and the us last summer that you said the way data was being sent to. The us was insecure. In august ireland's data regulators told facebook. Stop transferring its citizens data out of europe. The issue is with the irish high court now. In december facebook argued that court that to stop data transfers would have quote devastating and irreversible consequences for its business and this rule would obviously impact all kinds of commercial data and companies. It's also obviously a big deal for the new administration. Jessica a partner with the law firm loeb and loeb prior to twenty twenty. Let's say we had something called the privacy shield in effect and that helped us transfer data from the eu to the us and then over the summer. July twenty twenty. That was struck down. It was found that because of some of the surveillance operations of the us certain executive orders and laws we have in place that the data of eu individuals when it comes here essentially is it held to the same privacy standards as they are in the eu and the privacy. Shield wasn't adequate enough to protect it so that left a lot of us in the privacy community scrambling toward the second half of the year trying to figure out. How do we keep data flowing across the border right and that was a big deal to american tech companies right. I mean they were saying okay. Well look if we can't share data back and forth. We're not going to be able to operate in some of these countries right right. Exactly and so yeah. We've been looking for two things. So one is standard contractual clauses of companies have kind of defaulted to that but even those shaky ground and are being revised so. I think everyone was hoping that we'd find some solution. Some post privacy shield path forward with the eu. But that was difficult. I think what the previous administration will and so now we actually have someone in this role early. What does that signal to the rest of the world about the position. The us might take on privacy. I mean i think it signals a couple of things. I on privacy. I think it it signals that the biden administration understands the importance and the significance of the issue. And the need to kind of have these kind of crossborder cooperation In place and so. I think having someone christopher hoffa was appointed to this position really signals at. They're going to take the seriously and then take the steps that might be needed on the side of the us to make the comfortable with these data transfers. More broadly what sort of issues around. Privacy and surveillance do we expect. The biden administration tackle. Is there a chance for federal privacy legislation at long last. I've said that. I have moved from just mostly pessimistic to now moderately optimistic and that was really push forward by what happened in georgia so now with one party control all houses i think the path forward seems a little bit more clear and you know to keep in mind that biden and then we also have comma harris. Who formerly was attorney. General in california where she pushed forward a lot of significant privacy legislation. That's still impacts a lot of us today. So you know between the two of them i think this is an administration that has a background and understanding of the importance of privacy. And you know we have to deal with the pandemic. I but i anticipate privacy being a priority for them. Yeah i mean as a you mentioned by president. Kamala harris as a presidential candidate. She said that her first priority with tech companies is to ensure that consumer privacy remains uncompromised. Like is it. Is this an administration. You think that will try to find a better line between a business friendly approach and a consumer friendly approach whereas now it seems to be all business i do i do. I think i think that'd be really sensitive to the consumer issues. And if we think about it. When i look at what's going on in terms of trying to regulate privacy and then more broadly the tech companies it it feels like regulators are trying to chase a ball down a hill. You know it's just like oh. Do we do antitrust. Do we do section to thirty. Can we get some kind of federal privacy. And i think they'll try to take a pragmatic approach that will bridge the gap between the business and the consumer advocates. And from where. I said i think they're really sticking issues with federal privacy. That are left. It's will there be a private right of action meaning well individual consumers be able to sue companies directly. And then we'll they'll be preemption. Meaning that will this federal bill preempt any state laws which is really what business wants because business doesn't want to have to comply with fifty different state privacy laws on top federal privacy. So i think if we can get a path forward on those to all the other points of privacy laws are consumers get writes a lot of companies are already complying with that because of gdp pr see cpa. So we're down to the we're down to the final issues. Hopefully
Tribes and Native advocates praise Joe Biden’s actions to reverse many of the Trump Administration’s environmental policies affecting tribal lands
"This is national native news. Making camera in print tony gonzalez tribal advocates are praising president. Joe biden's quick action to reverse the last administration's environmental policies the mountain west news bureaus savannah mar reports on inauguration day biden took steps to rejoin the paris climate accord.

Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez deliver moving inauguration performances
"Inauguration musical performances are tricky but lady gaga jennifer lopez and garth brooks. Did exactly what we needed them to do. By stephanie's jaric when lady gaga the first performer. At the inauguration of president joe biden and vice president kamala harris step toward the podium to sing everything about her that tropical red poof of skirt. The colossal golden dove perched on her shoulder that milk made from moma hairdo. Was celebratory announcement. Welcome to the modern age. Though the road ahead is rocky we no longer need to live and dread gaga living completely in the moment had arrived to point the way toward the future inauguration musical performances in their need to balance solemnity with jubilation are always tricky propositions but the biden harris performances from gaga. Lo and garth brooks performers from disparate backgrounds and different disciplines struck a note. Unlike any we've previously heard let's call it a sigh of relief building to a cheer of exaltation. even the cloud strewn blue of the washington sky seemed key to the moment and to this particular event taking place in a spot where just two weeks ago a bunch of clumsy if dangerous insurrectionist took a run at democracy and failed jennifer lopez was the centerpiece performer. But let's talk about her. First emerging all white chanel. She projected confidence civil woman who has worked her way to the top of her game. White everyone likes to note is one of the colors of the suffragettes. But it's also the color of working people in machine washable cotton and the color of luxury and dry clean only silken wall in this remarkable. Hi lo j. lo outfit replete with snowy gibault possibly a not to the garb of our founding fathers lopez. Saying a remarkable song. This land is your land. It was written in nineteen forty by. Woody guthrie allegedly and shabby hotel room just outside of times square. Not on the six but in close enough for lopez to sing this song a protest anthem but also an irrefutable declaration of belonging with so much conviction and boldness is to bring guthrie's intent and his dream full circle. This is in america. He couldn't have imagined. So terrible in some ways yet so radiant and others here is where woody and his work shirt meets a dazzling latina artists from the bronx who represents not just in terms of any monetary success but in her sheer awesomeness. Everything that an individual is free to strive toward in america. Lopez's version of the song wasn't a reclamation. You can't reclaim something that already belongs to you. And as she segue into the song we sometimes think of as our second national anthem. America the beautiful she reaffirmed that sense of ownership and pride and a breakout moment she shouted out in spanish words that translate into one nation under god indivisible with liberty and justice for all. But you didn't need to speak the language to know what she meant.

QAnon after Trump: The Storm that never came
"Justin ling is an author and a reporter who has been following the twists and turns of the cunanan movement for most of this year. Hello jesmyn hey thanks for having me of course. Why don't you start before we get into what's happened since joe biden was sworn in What we're various cue in on believers expecting to happen on january. I think the vast majority of people who follow the conspiracy never thought joe biden would ever be inaugurated. They said that repeatedly a whole part of the queue. Mythos has been that something amazing will happen and that donald trump will be at the last minute. Of course cunanan has been sort of the vanguard of the conspiracy that donald trump never actually lost the election. That was old rigged the they were the ones. We're doing a lot of that. Frontline research but research in scare quotes there that underpinned the trump campaign's effort to overturn the election. You can draw a straight line. From a lot of the conspiracies that popped up on q. Forms like eight chan and gab. A right into at the trump campaign's legal filings around the election. Right the conspiracies around dominion voting systems basically gaining sentence and changing trump votes to biden. You know that started on a lot of these forms and wound up in those legal filings from sydney powell from lynnwood from the trump campaign that were an attempt to overturn the results and then also founded the belief of some republican senators congressmen. Who tried to deny. Joe biden certification victory so they consistently thought that those efforts would work when they didn't they deluded themselves with a sort of magical realism thinking that something would happen today. That on this stage will as joe biden's hand hits the bible that there'd be mass arrests that the national guard was really. They're not to protect the inauguration but to set the stage to have joe biden and his compatriots arrested. there was a pervasive belief. That a military tribunal would be set up in dc and that all of these folks from barack obama to bush hillary clinton joe biden kamala harris. Everybody would be arrested and tried for treason. I mean this is literally what many of them believed. I'm not exaggerating. This was the bedrock of the faith. The cunanan had that would turn out in their favor. Any word we're talking. You know to thirty on wednesday afternoon. There were still a whole bunch of folks who think that in the next ten days. It'll all the inauguration will turn out to be a ruse There is a tremendous amount of faith from these folks. Things will turn around in their favor. Any given moment that. If it's not now than pretty soon. And i think it's been horror on many of these folks to watch predictions consistently failed to come true will. Yeah you've been keeping an eye on these forums for for a long time off and on but you've also been Pretty glued to them over the past twenty four hours or so and as you mentioned. We're talking on wednesday afternoon. How of they've been handling it as you know. I trump depart. Says he wasn't supposed to then. Nothing happens at the inauguration. Then nothing happens when they inspect the troops and you know presumably knock on wood No mass arrests take place at the inaugural or whatever but like how. How do they deal with that consistent disappointment so i think there's there's kind of a handful of different camps right is a camp of coup non believers or maybe former cunanan believers who are accepting that things haven't gone their way who are posting right now on a lot of these forms saying you know what that's it i can't do it anymore. My face has been shattered. This was all a ruse. We it was sort of a triple fake out. None of the prediction come true Either q. is never real or they're overplaying their hand or whatever. Basically these folks have accepted that none of this is real I don't know that those people are going to turn around and embrace liberalism tomorrow but at the very least they seem to be disenchanted and done with this sort of far right conspiracy. Making there are other people who have kind of come to the same conclusion but to a different from a different angle. You know there were there. Were people who used to believe this or maybe who will always kind of in the same Area of belief but never quite trust the cunanan thing who are saying. Well we've been played. You know this was all just a gambit for people who make money you'll get power whatever but we have the double down on the same mission does not under the ambit of of cunanan. These are people who are probably very. Who are i know anti semitic who are you know. In some cases homophobic racist who are deeply reactionary and conservative on these are people who just fundamentally can't square a biden administration but who we're going to find a new channel for a lot of those grievances and there are going to be a bunch of people who who stick with who convinced themselves that this is all part of the plan. I've seen a theory emerged in the last day. That says the joe biden is in on it that actually joe biden donald trump working together. And this is.

President Biden appeals for unity to take on crises
"Biden takes. The helm appeals for unity to take on crises. Kamala harris becomes the first woman to be vice president and biden targets trump policies on climate virus and immigration. It's thursday january twenty one. I'm anthony davis. Joe biden was sworn in as the forty sixth president of the united states on wednesday. Declaring democracy has prevailed and summoning american resilience and unity to confront the deeply divided nations historic confluence of crises denouncing. A national uncivil. War biden took the oath at the us. Capitol that had been battered by an insurrectionist siege. Just two weeks earlier. Then taking his place at the white house oval office he plunged into a stack of executive actions that began to undo the haunt of his polarizing predescessors agenda on matters from the deadly pandemic to climate change at the capitol with the american tradition of peaceful transfer of power never appearing more fragile. The quadrennial ceremony unfolded within a circle of security forces evocative of a war zone and devoid of crowds. Because of the coronavirus pandemic instead biden gazed out on a cold washington morning dotted with snow flurries to see over two hundred thousand american flags planted on the national mall to symbolize those who could not attend in person. The will of the people has been heard and the will of the people has been heated. We've learned again. Democracy is precious and democracy is fragile at this hour. my friends. Democracy has prevailed biden declared in his speech. This is america's day. This is democracies day a day in history and hope of renewal and resolve. History was made at his side as kamala harris became the first woman to be vice. President the former. Us senator from california is also the first black person and the first person of south asian descent elected to the vice presidency and the highest ranking woman ever to serve in the us government rare inaugural address president joe biden issued a strong repudiation of white supremacy and domestic terrorism on the rise on the donald trump in his speech biden denounced racism negativism fear demonization. That propels the assault on capitol hill by an overwhelming white mob of trump's supporters who carried symbols of hate including the confederate battle flag biden never mentioned his predecessor who defied tradition and left town ahead of the ceremony but his speech was an implicit rebuke of donald trump. The new president denounced lies told for power and for profit and was blunt about the challenges ahead central among them the surging virus that has claimed more than four hundred thousand lives in the united states as well as economic strains and a national reckoning over race. We have much to do in this winter of peril significant possibilities few people in our nation's history of been more challenged or found a time more challenging or difficult than the time we're in now biden said the absence of biden's predescessor from the inaugural ceremony undescored. The national rift to be healed but a bipartisan trio. Former presidents bill. Clinton george w bush and barack obama with there to witness the transfer of power biden in his third run for the presidency staked his candidacy less on any distinctive political ideology then on galvanizing a broad coalition of voters around the notion that trump posed an existential threat to american democracy for years after trump's american carnage speech painted a dark portrait of national decay biden warned that the fabric of the nation's democracy was tearing but could be repaired swearing the oath with his hand on a five inch thick bible. That has been in his family for one. Hundred and twenty eight years biden came to office with a well of empathy and resolve born by personal tragedy as well as a depth of experience forged for more than four decades in washington
The one reason I will have grace for President Joe Biden & Vice President Kamala Harris
"It's official donald. Trump is no longer the president of the united states. As i speak. Joe biden and kamala harris are being inaugurated are being sworn in to their positions and we are about to enter a very new era of national politics of federal politics. I don't expect that it will be easy. In any way we have over-simplified our problems in the sense that we have blamed many of our deep systemic problems that predated trump. We have blamed many of those things on him including police. Brutality mass incarceration when those things were fully entrenched before he ever took office. But i want to say. And i want to talk about this this one thing today. I wanna say the one reason why. I'm going to have a serious degree of grace and patients with both joe biden and kamala harris. That i think a year ago. I probably would not have offered. Had the two of them been sworn in but a lot has happened over the past year. Let me tell you why. I'm going to have grace as they began this extremely difficult journey. Let me unpack and explain it. This is shaun king. You're listening to the breakdown. The breakdown the breakdown. If you've ever listened to this podcast or if you follow me on social media you've ever seen or heard me on the campaign trail for bernie sanders you know that. I've been a huge huge critic of joe biden and in particular. I've been a huge critic of his is policies and history and and kind of problematic past on issues of mass incarceration the war on drugs and policing and win this presidential campaign particularly we go all the way back almost two years now on the democratic primaries i started there was no coronavirus pandemic. There had been no attack on the american capital and the four hundred thousand plus people who've now died over the past nine months they were they were all alive and what has happened to our nation over the past year truly makes it arguably one of the most difficult years in modern american history of certainly over the past few generations at the very least. It's just been an unspeakably difficult year. And the truth. Is that all of the things that made twenty twenty so hard as we saw just continued into twenty twenty one now with trump out of office and with him off of twitter and i. That's no small thing. I i wasn't. I was on break from the podcast when he was booted from twitter and didn't get really didn't get a chance to really unpack it but having him off of twitter is damn near as big as having him out of the white house. Twitter was his superpower and with him no longer their misinformation and hate and so much other things so many other things just plummeted all over social media particularly on twitter. He he we now. Fully understand was the epicenter of hate and misinformation on that platform. And when you remove him all of a sudden so many other negative metrics plummeted as well now hate and racism and bigotry. Don't disappear when you remove him from twitter. But having trump out of office without the power of that position about the power to appoint judges and supreme court justices and cabinet members and white house staffers in without the power of executive actions without him and his incompetent team overseeing the a horrible response to the coronavirus pandemic a competent team can now be put in place and so a lot of the things that made twenty twenty difficult. Some of those things continue into twenty twenty one though with trump out of office his administration out of office and with him off of twitter. I think there are some things that will get better with that sale. Joe biden comma. Harris are literally about to begin. What i think will be the most difficult presidency in our lifetime

"Are small businesses. We have to have a plan in the tales matter I would love to start at the beginning of the journey go. It's interesting being Kamala Harris because according to trump you all crazier than Bernie, the Mosul socialist person in the world, and then according to some people you are not progressive enough who are you to you? Like if you introducing Kamala Harris to people. Who is commonly Harris and what are you going to represent when you get into that office? Let me tell you I am the child of parents who fought for civil rights. I. Am the daughter of a mother who arrived in the United States at the age of nineteen. And believed that she and her children could do anything and that we should never hear. No. And and so these are some of the things that have fueled my ambition to fight for equality to fight for justice to fight for fairness, and when I think about the prospect of being the vice president of the United States, those will be my values and my goals informed by the values that are about understanding the need to to fight for the dignity. Of all people fighting for working families fighting for the vulnerable and the voiceless among us these. These are the things that propel me the things that propel me are to fix these problems in a way that we understand the people behind the issues and not just engaging grand gestures but engage in what is actually necessary to address the needs of the people. You know and yeah, the the these people I mean I don't pay attention to the name calling trevor there some of us who have lived a lifetime of being called names and it is predictable and it is childish and it will not distract me. Go Away because when we come back, we'll have more of my conversation with Kamala Harris including why her name is so easy it's so difficult to pronounce..

"This is this is the problem that I have. So she had her exhusband is dark. She has a black guy. Yeah. She has dark children and when I went through her images is like as the years progress, it's almost like she whitewashed her life you don't see any. Anywhere. You don't see the ex husband likes she dated Montel Williams four minute and you. See absolutely shoes suit Blatt wrote. It was. Way. Down Traveling Hardaway. Jordan. Does like the. Maybe. Nine. Maybe much. told. Tale. Over. Member I don't remember. PUTS. US. All I've seen. Reports. Oh Now the talk so. Like him to. Images as I was going through Google, over years, it's like she whitewashed. Deeper she got into politics and I. Just I don't know just had a slight problem, it seems shallow but this is slightly deeper. Reasoning to it because I don't Wanna I don't want to claim her personal. I? Feel kind of funny. But that's what it felt like when I saw the image I don't care that she has a white husband. I think probably gonNA help her to. She's not going to appear to be to to to go black. Right but A lot of bosses Oh and I don't know if you guys noticed you guys may senior. Joe. Biden. Like they home he's. Joe Biden's son. ME. No I think they like all they this around the same age. I think her I think actually her GIOVE-A. I think her. Maybe it is. Maybe maybe he. Had No White But but yeah, I think I heard. Joe In a commodore like real like tight. And that thing like when you when she attacked him at the debates about the saints come on your buying this shit are you? By what they got, there's really tight and like they go get ribs I definitely think earned her son home he's lie while you. Because they told you that you think that's all of them hanging out and I can show you pictures of me and a lot of people. City. Yellow. Wolf. But that's that's that's another factor if true if. You think it's going to take before. Biden calls are like my sister or homegirl. Probably Someone in public I. Thought you were going to say. Give like a wider amount of time. Thank you. Brother has. Publico he's he says whatever the fuck. Yes he's all he'll know better. Oh to. Watch him. Now coming to the stage is my homegirl. Kamala Kamala Jenkins tears come on up Kamala off the cabbage patch into. Right, he can be like, go go. I immediately saw Barney circle was that the. Yeah. I know you had to leave early. Is a good pick though it'll work which you hadn't. So, in. y'All probably follow her on facebook somebody posted a conversation that was on the shade room that that garnered a lot of conversation and basically goes a text message between. So people who were dating the woman has two children. Three children's saw that the woman has three children by two different fathers and she text the gentleman who she's dating, which is none of the children's fathers. Said her kid at the last minute had field trip. She's twenty dollars. Can you hold let me twenty dollars right and dues like we'll whereas dazzling. Can you. Let me hold twenty dollars basically saying that's not my problem. You Know Sweetie you need to get with your father's it's not my responsibility to take care of your kids current girlfriend. Girlfriend. How long we don't know that we apparently he says that they weren't dating that long. Really that's that's that's what I was reading. Okay, they're more. Now. That's really it. So the question was, is he wrong or is he right? Is He wrong so not give twenty dollars for her kids. So I think Ken ex very valid question about how long has had they been dating. I mean 'cause 'cause sick about it like naked. Say about me at about her y'all are married you can't. Get it ourselves before we. Dated for a very long time. So like. The Funeral. How long we were dating like I'll be straight asshole to be like. Well. You know. Puff all the responsibility while I got it would you be straight asshole for being like? Go to their dad did you even ask the Dad and if the answer is no then why the fuck are you coming to me in my pocket but she says, she did. Did ask the Dad do you have the conversation pulled up there? Yes. Let's quote. So she says I need twenty dollars twenty dollars to do web eight. He sees as my kids trip tomorrow name tell me till today. Dan as is not going to go because you they told you to. Stay Awhile. He's Bay. You're going to have to ask the kids father for that is the she say, you know what I don't WanNa. Tell you know. He's says, okay. Didn't it was fun while it lasted me giving you money will never work unless you're my wife and I'm sorry you got three kids and fathers for those kids. Those man gotTa give you that Money Sweetie. So she did not say she checked. So that is that's my only issue with that. Now, she said, well, ask them and they don't have any money. But you know. Can you spot me? Okay, fine. But you didn't even ask fuck out of my face. Do you think. Got A couple of yeah. Yeah. Do.

"That's one of the reasons that I was saying that Kamala could be a boon to that vote so like you said. Joe Biden is already connected to Obama. So there's already that kind of like mild influence to get out and vote for you know Obama's Bro but then having an actual whether or not you think she's black having an actual black candidate on the ticket to is just that much more. Yes I see where you're coming from but I don't think I don't think the turnout is going to be there I don't think the youth vote is going to be there. And here's. Where I was going to before it's a trap for Donald Trump because. As you said there's a weakness for Kamala. Where in the primaries we saw this progressives didn't like really believe or they SARS duplicitous as we've been saying, they saw her as this kind of law and order candidate. She's put like a lot of people away. She's she's not appealing to as far as record is concerned, not very appealing to what we would think the blackout would be appealing to now donald trump could attack her in that weak point. But that whole realm is a weak point for Donald Trump Joe Biden. On, Joe Biden opened up his campaign literally the first thing he released from his campaign was attaching himself to the Charlottesville protest where white supremacy. This is how it was framed white supremacists rallied and they targeted this anti-racist protester and ran her over with a car. Buying kicked off his campaign centric himself as the Anti Racist Anti White Supremacist candidate and This is electing a black female specifically Kamala Harris is just centering it on race that much more, and this is losing ground for Donald Trump period. No matter how you slice it is losing ground for Donald. Trump if donald trump does go after the weak spot that you pointed out, it's just Going to take himself into a battlefield where he loses. And so. Recently very recently it seems he's going in eight then yeah. Yes. He just did a tweet.

"Doing those things and we know this from you know you were involved with brock debate. Perhaps there are certain tactics and moves that are of that are treated. One way when done by a white man in different wind done by out. Man Doubly Angry Nancy. If you're black person's like some of the great moments in debate history like if Barack Obama had on the I know Jack. Kennedy you're G was a friend of mine. You're no Jack. Kennedy would have been treated very differently than employed. Benson. Did it right if the the where's the beef line from Ronald Reagan be treated very differently if Hillary Clinton had done in two, thousand, sixteen or Kamala Harris were to do it right now, and so I think we know from within the context of democratic debate that the way women and candidates of color were covered was very problematic. That's going to be quadruple E so in a general election debate and like I think she will do incredibly while I think it is incumbent upon everyone to try to recognize the additional hurdles that the political conversation will put in the place of black woman in that position and find the NFL have the right answer this but find ways to push back on that language in those tropes in that's those stereotypes. Nah. I remember feeling very frustrated. On behalf of Obama during a debate prep session, I, think it was when he was prepared debate Romney, when he was told to like be more passionate, be more show that you're that you care that you're into this and and get angry you know and he was reluctant to do that because as a black man he he believed that he couldn't show that kind of anger without a bunch of fucking racists out there sort of an on to Carlson show saying that you know making stereotypes about this and saying that he had some stereotypes. So No, it's a it's a it's it's something that she s navigate both as A. Woman of as a woman and a woman of color, which is, which is very tough. But I'm so excited for the debate I. Mean honestly, it's like just the one thing to look forward to that we know is going to happen between now and Election Day which I also think is why people gravitate towards it it's like people aren't necessarily excited for the speech because they don't understand what's going to happen we we know kind of what can happen at the debate I, say, defending myself maybe the first person who actually tweeted the thing about the debate Well. I mean like to be like, yes. Even though I said all still looking forward to it, but this has been there's been a dark few years in America and some of the rare moments of joy have been Kamala Harris Destroying Bill Bar Jeff, sessions Brad Kavanagh like. Like those have been moments of light and dark time, and so it is understandable to be looking forward to it with Mike Pence who is terrible. Terrible All. Right. Well. That's when we come back.

As Klein, you wrote about Joe Picking Com love for Vox Dot com today does it really matter who joe picks I mean apart from covid Mike. Pence has mostly seemed like a Cheerleader a suit for four years does the veep matter? It depends what you mean by matter. So definitely, for governance, the vice president matters if the president wants them to matter. Mike Pence's mattered. He is staffed entire trump administration. Right? The reason. So much of the trump administration ends up following cope brother policies is because Mike Pence's they're putting people into the key positions Joe Biden mattered in the Obama administration because Burke. Obama trusted him. Now other vice presidents have not mattered, right? Lyndon. Johnson famously didn't matter in John F Kennedy's administration but right there you see. The way they also can matter that's a big bus sometimes, the president dies or has to leave for some other reason or potentially even and there have been rumors of this simply declined to run for a second term right? Joe Biden seventy seven, I believe there have been rumors that even if he wins, he might himself as a transitional figure and declined to run again in which case. His vice president would be the heir apparent. I'm so yes. In those two ways, vice presidents matter tremendously for governance for who governs in the future. The people often mean when they say do vice presidents matter is do they swing the election and the evidence? There is overwhelmingly no they matter a little bit in their home state and so I think it is safe to say that Joe Biden is now going to win California. His odds are very very good in California but beyond that. There would not be reason to look at history and say putting Comma Harris on the ticket is going to substantially change the the votes Joe Biden doesn't get on the LBJ front on the there's rumors Biden might only do one term here front on the Biden seventy seven and maybe not at his best front I wonder are you trying to say that he's potentially picking? Who He thinks could be The next president of the United States like the next next president of the United States. Yes. He knows that he is thought about that explicitly through the entire process. Joe Biden. HAS HIS FAULTS BUT He's actually been very clear. Hide on the strengths and weaknesses of Joe. Biden. And he understands that he himself is older. He does not represent directly much the Democratic Party. Joe. Biden's a white man in old white man in a party that loses white voters, male voters and old voters. He is not as a liberal or is left in some ways. Parties become instrument not as left as the younger generation of the party has become, and when I say he thinks of himself as a transitional figure I'm not putting words in his mouth. The quote is I am a transitional candidate to Joe. Biden sees himself as the person who can beat Donald Trump and I think he believes he will do a good job as president. I. Know He believes that but Joe Biden understands that he will not carry this forward and also he himself has incredibly intense vivid experience of the way being chosen as vice president might. Make. You put you in line to be the next president. He's run for president a number of times and has never done. Well, he did not come in first second third fourth in two thousand and eight. All right. But after becoming Brock Obama's vice president, he became the front runner when he did run in twenty twenty. So Biden better than most people as a real sense that being named vice president really vaulting into leadership of a party the maybe would not have made you its leader otherwise it's pretty obvious seeming what she brings to him just by virtue of being this historic choice. But what about her politics and? Ideology. Comma Harris in a way that is not often mentioned weirdly like validated in a lot of political commentary about her she is one of the most liberal members of the Senate. No matter how you track this she is in the five most liberal. It's like Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders Comma Harrison Cory Booker are the most liberal members of the Senate and yet people peg as a moderate It's very weird on the New York Times called her a moderate just yesterday. The thing is that Comma Harris does not tend to go with the left on all symbolic issues. and. She is a politician who came up and politics in different era, and so her record as a prosecutor was more mixed between its progressive elements and it's more tough on crime elements that her record is a senator, which is much more forthrightly liberal. As a presidential candidate, what she tried to do was exist in between the left and moderate lanes. That's part of why the left doesn't trust her. They don't believe she be with them in all circumstances and she probably wouldn't be but we're she sees the country going and we're her on politics tend to be going. Reflect a party that is changing Joe Biden is move left because a party is changing comma. Harris's move left because the party is changing and they both kind of reflect this way in which they want to rhetorically appeal to a country that they don't think is all the way with our Party is, but they also want to be where their party is and and they recognize that that has moved quite a bit over the past decade. So how does Biden Harris beat trump pence in two thousand twenty. I mean trump pence is going to beat trump pinson twenty, twenty, two, the first rock station or if they win it'll it'll be for for for that recent to but people thought that last time to people keep saying that but. Donald trump was not the incumbent in two thousand sixteen. So he did not own the condition of the country. And he does on the condition of the country right now. When incumbent is running for reelection as president practically during a national crisis the first question and a lot of voters minds particularly persuadable voters do I like the condition of the country. Be Single Best Donald Trump could do a win reelection is do a good job managing corona virus, and the single. Most important thing he could do to lose reelection is to continue doing a terrible job of it. So Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will beat him by to some degree if beat him by keeping the focus on his failures. Donald trump could beat them by turning his failures into successes or somehow scaring Americans about what Abidin Harris Presidency would mean. I don't know if you caught this but trump put an ad on twitter maybe re tweeted a video but I think it was an ad. It was the the trump war room who put this out. and. Pasted Joe Biden's face onto a Trojan horse. And then the Trojan horse movie can we came into Troy and then out of the Trojan horse came? On Omar Bernie Sanders and. And you've seen this a lot on Fox News this effort to try to like frame Joe Biden as somehow.

Can I'm half Tamil to Eddie the Harris half is Jamaican. Her Indian mother and Jamaican father met in Berkeley California in the sixties Carmello was a few years later in Oakland you're probably at least a. Little familiar with her story from their Howard University Law School back in California Prosecutors San Francisco. Da California. Attorney. General. And then she becomes the first South Asian to serve in the US Senate and only the second black woman, and now she's the first ever black woman and the first South Asian woman to make it onto the presidential ticket of major American political party. The civil rights struggle is nothing new to jail. It's why he got into public service. It's why he helped reauthorized the Voting Rights Act and restore unemployment discrimination and Employment Discrimination Laws and today he takes his place in the ongoing story of America's march toward equality and justice is only as the only. As the only who has served alongside the first black president. And has chosen the first black woman as his running mate on today's show we're going to talk about the significance of Biden's choice and whether these two can take down president? Donald Trump. Fabulous cineas report on race for Vox. There's GonNa be a lot of focus on Kamala Harris identity in the next few weeks. How does she identify herself? Say Lately Kamla identifies as American. But the way she identifies as definitely changed over time. So when she became the second black woman ever to be elected to the US Senate. She proudly claimed that she was an African American woman, but she also said that she was a South Asian American woman but now I think over time as she has done more interviews as she announced her candidacy for the presidency. She? Basically says on American. Of course, we'd like to believe that in two thousand, twenty known even care that she's A. Half South Asian half black politician, and that it wouldn't really make a difference because she is just an American. But of course, twenty twenty has taught us anything that won't be the case. What are the challenges she's facing because of her identity So just within the last twenty, four hours people have already been debating whether cameras is black or is she black enough? She is really played up this idea that she's a traditional black American like myself and so many others who count ourselves among the millions of black people who are descended from slaves but she is not descended from slaves. She descended from slave owners we've seen this. Happen right when it comes to politicians with mixed ancestry with mixed heritage right just look at Barack Obama and the right has actually already launched a campaign basically saying that Kamla is not African American and so there's one commentator Mark Levin who got an show last night and said Kamla Harris's not an African American she is Indian and Jamaican Jamaica's part of the Caribbean India is. Out there near China. I only point that out. Because If you dare raise that you're attacked but the truth is she's not and so I just wanted to make that clear ancestry does not go back to American slavery. Also, he completely ignored the fact that Kamo was born in the United States, and that's already a question that people are asking and googling what she born in the United States like that one guy who was born in Kenya exactly exactly. So. BIRTHERISM is already thing that's even happening with, comma? Harris. If they're already coming up with ways to say, she was born somewhere else is just going to be like the beginning of lots of disinformation about her yeah. Because black women have historically been cast as others there's ample opportunity for people to craft these campaigns around calmly being this. figure. Calmly being this other, there's an expert that I interviewed. They said that black female politicians are more prone to a disinformation attacks because of. Their status as black women. And people being willing being more willing to believe falsehoods about them. Last night on Fox. News we saw another example of the kind of criticism that Kamla is going to face Tucker Carlson kept mispronouncing her name and someone corrected him and say, Hey, we should show more respect by actually pronouncing her name correctly. But Tucker Carlson took offence to that saying took offence to pronouncing her name. Correctly he took offense to someone saying, Hey, you're pronouncing her name correctly out of respect for somebody who's going to be on actual ticket pronouncing her name right is actually. About though, I'm disrespecting her by mispronouncing her name unintentionally begins. You're not allowed to criticize Kamala a Harris or Camel Harris. No because of Kamla harassed ever that's just another thing that Komo's is GonNa face when people are trying to say, Hey, you're talking about her in a way that sexist or you're talking about her in a way. That's racist. Folks on the right. We're already seeing them saying, Hey, she should be criticized right she. She has a right to be criticized. No one is above criticism especially someone who is VP nominee for the Democratic Party of course, president trump is wasted no time calling her a nasty woman an adjective he sometimes seems to reserve for women of colors was extraordinarily nasty to. Kevin O. J. Judge Cavanaugh. Then now justice cavanaugh she was nasty to a level that was just a a horrible thing. The way she was where she traded. Now Justice Gavin. What other stereotypes might she be facing as she enters this race in earnest? Definitely. So I think the main one that's already coming out is this age old stereotype that we call the Sapphire the Sapphire the Sapphire. Yeah. That stereotype is given rise to what we call today as the angry black woman stubborn overbearing. Characterizes, loud and even emasculating during the very first debate she challenged Joe Biden about his position on school busing. There was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools and she was bused to school every day. and. The little girl was me. So I will tell you that on this subject, it cannot be an intellectual debate among Democrats we have to take it seriously we have to act swiftly and people characterized through challenge of Joe Biden as a vicious attack people said that. She was fierce however when I, for example, look that what com Lewis said I was like this is a woman who is trying to say hey joe. Your stance on this as A black woman who desegregated public schools growing up your stance on this really hurt me how does Comma Harris battle all of this sort of. Disinformation campaigns. Assertions that she'll be beyond criticism just because she's a black woman and a half. South Asian woman at that that they'll be these allegations that she's a Sapphire and she's like an angry black woman. What is what does she do? Some much of this stuff sounds just totally unfounded. I think Tomlin, right what we've seen I'm from her on the campaign trail is that she's very direct. and. She will call people out directly and I think that's one of her strong suits is that she? Doesn't back down from speaking the truth and trying to correct.

"They need to be guilted that need to be silent sit down shut up and listen they're browbeaten and then someone like, Kamala. Harris comes in and talks about how hard she has it when there is verifiable proof that she benefited from slavery and kind of like the low Jones Kamala Harris could use it both ways dye her hair blonde, your none, the wiser doing I don't. Bring that Lolo, Jones Olympics she was at the Biracial athlete and I just watched the recent documentary. She's like hair Brown. By racial now, shing there you go. There's Lolo Jones Olympics now let's look at Lolo Jones today. I don't know if we can find a picture of a little today she looks like she's picking up a Pumpkin Spice Latte, and my point is that's that's Oh Yeah. Totally. Different person. Her playboy. Side to that Coin Kamala Harris could do the same to use it. All right. Here's another issue. As a prosecutor, we're talking about black lives matter in the riots, the violent riots. She kept inmates jailed for longer to use them as cheap labour. She supported the death penalty, which may surprise people and she incarcerated over fifteen hundred people for marijuana offenses. So if we're talking about moving the needle forward for the heads who just WanNa get blitzed she too is not your candidate can you explain to this this to people who may not be up on the the nerdiness of the the prison sentences yeah. I mean, I think that the basic scenario there was that nonviolent offenders were supposed to be eligible for parole after serving half their sentence because if got crowded prisons CETERA and she wanted to keep him in to use for cheap labor. So essentially another. A. Another form of slavery. Right you. Might say yeah she's she's continuing the tradition goes to groups of people. I mean. What's interesting about that is that traditionally you're going to see at least even with trump you've seen a lot of attacks about him being the law and order president and right kind of you know doing not not that actually it was twenty as he even he doesn't do that. Right? Right you know he's not well, he did the was it the What was your name? Alice. Marie Johnson. and His his first step act was actually one of the first steps towards changing the laws on harsh sentences for nonviolent offenders. Right. But at that time, the laws were the laws the judges need to do. They need to do the only one who really had a lot of discretion. Certainly, judges had some with regards to evidence or you know sentencing, but it came down to the prosecutors. It came down to the district attorney for the city San Francisco and what they were doing and how they decided to not only bring cases but what sentences they were asking for..

"Say co mingle with benefit her career. She did it And she's nothing more than a political social climber. Sounds like Hillary, Clinton. Now is going to be a big talking point moving forward. This racist, not a traditional political rates. It's not a traditional vice presidential race. It is now almost like Senator Kamala Harris is running for president of the United, states? This is a good thing for Donald Trump. Harris is the daughter of tremain born father, an indian-born mother. Her Dad. Donald. Harris is an economics professor. Her mother was a quote breast cancer researcher from India two, thousand, two, thousand, nine of colon cancer. She's the daughter of immigrants, but her heritage, it's caused a little bit of debate among Democrats. Look I. Don't really care about her race, but it's important. Understand these dynamics because they shape up the way the left thinks and why by Biden chose her listen to African? American. April Ryan debate or heritage. With CNN, Don Lemon play tape and we'll one. She is a black woman. She's a mixed race woman. When you see her, you see her blackness, but she is also South Asian her mom south. Asian and her dad is Jamaican April April other nearly listen more power to her and I think it's great that is that should be enough. It is enough that she's a black woman. I don't. You're not. You're not dealing with people are saying the people who are saying she blackened bats ball. That's BS. But to to to. Sanction to say, is she African American or is she black or she? Whatever that? What's there is nothing wrong with that, there is a difference between being African American and being black. Latin. People. People Latino people people of Color, but they're not black. They're Brown people. Okay. But she is a black woman. I, agree with that, I, agree with that. But. African, American. But if she african-american, there's a difference. There's nothing wrong with that. No one is trying to take anything away from her. I. Think you're I. Think you're. Also say I am black. No, I'm not African American that's it. I'm not falling. Let me let me let me finish hold on. I'm not falling into a trap by that when when when she goes down her lineage, many Africans landed on in Jamaica in all these other Caribbean islands. So she could do not American with others, but she's not American. So her race is going to be a little bit. A topic of conversation is she really black is what? What some people are going to say, that's actually kind of irrelevant to me. I care much more as to whether or not. She is a good person I care about whether she's going to make good decisions. I, care about her ideas which are awful. Now, this is from the primary debate where she called for president trump to be banned from twitter play tape. Care we have, Donald. Trump. LA-, sixty, five, million twitter followers, and is using that platform as the president of the United States to openly intimidate witnesses to threaten witnesses to obstruct justice, and he and his account should be taken down and president trump said in his press conference. When asked about Kamala. Harris the following that should be my number, one draft, pick play tape..

No, not time for that. It's time for us to announce who we've selected. Who is it? If we tell you you probably forget. So. Comma. Harris. And he did. So in a very bizarre way, he showed a picture of himself on zoom call with an iphone upside down in a script, right in front of him while he was talking to Senator Harris over zoom or Webex Joe Biden tweeted the following I have the great honor to announce that I've picked at Camera Harris, a fearless fighter for the little guy and one of the country's finest public servants as my running mates back when lock was Attorney General, she closely worked with Bo.

Are Really hurting right now. There's a possibility though that the season's resume later in the school year, maybe in January or spring although football in. January, only for the pros, right. But it all depends on the state of the pandemic, but didn't athletes. So a bunch of football players are starting to come together to create a sort of union or players association across their conferences, which would actually be really groundbreaking. Play the season, but not unless there are universal health and safety standards across schools and they wanna work out a revenue sharing agreement with their leagues compensation for College athletes has been an issue for a really long time and it's getting a new push now partially because of the extra risk that players are facing in the middle of a pandemic.

Last year has said in the past that he would consider quitting if players got compensated. Compensated a little bit more context pins and trump have jumped on the hash tag as well. Trying to Co op the movement. It's kind of their. You know case for pushing schools to move to reopen and go forward with sports I.

"And moral clarity clarity and treat all people with dignity and respect unless they are accused from others. I'll throw them in jail and threaten them or potential Supreme Court. Justices disagree with me on Roe versus Wade. Begnaud unfairly persecute them and pretend that I have. Evidence that gang rapists shouldn't say that last part that bitch is the part that's that's true says I will lead with integrity. I will speak the truth. And that's what I've tried to do every day of this campaign. So here's the truth. Today I've taken stock and looked at this from every angle in over the last few days have come to one of the hardest decisions of my wife. My campaign for President simply doesn't have the financial the resources we need to continue. I'm not a billionaire. I can't fund my own campaign and as the campaign has gone on. It's become harder and harder to raise the money we need to compete. Now I will say it is hysterically correctly funny to watch as every Major Democrat now complains that there's too much money in politics on the democratic side of the aisle. We haven't even reached the I'll show you all the Democrats today are claiming that the reason the Komo Harris's out the reason cory booker is experiencing trouble is because they can't raise money if only they were billionaires like what Joe Biden. Joe Biden is I think the poorest person on the democratic side of the aisle maybe Buddha judge warned. The two BUJU hasn't been having trouble raising money because isn't crap candidate Biden has been having trouble raising money but he's got name recognition so the complaints that. I'm not a billionaire so I couldn't get ahead this race. There was a point where Comma Harris was your leader. In fact there was a point where she was bragging thing about how she was your polydor right after Tulsi Gabbard slapped her. During one of the debates Kamala Harris said that she was a top candidate infectious a top tier candidate. This is one of the charming things that makes Kamala Harris one of the earliest candidates to drop out of this race..
