Appointed senator kelly leffler in georgia. Kelly leffler for about ten years has been a partial owner of the atlanta dream of the wnba. She's now the majority owner but she's been around the team for now ten or eleven years and you may have heard her own players and much of the wnba is diametrically opposed to everything that leffler stands force. It was a very interesting situation to see everything develop earlier this week. And then how it works in the team dynamic for more on that. Let's welcome and renee. Montgomery actually a guard for the atlanta dream. She joins us this morning. She's actually rejoining us this morning a second time. She's been on with this. Good morning to you so i guess the first thing i gotta ask you is being a member of the team and understanding everything. That's going on on the floor in off the floor. What's the reaction of you and your teammates to misled losing this election. So i'm just gonna speak for myself and the reaction is. It's not even just her losing. Its rafael worn off. One and i wanna make sure that the messaging stays clear because there's some things that happened on january six is trying to take away from the fact that a black man is going to send it a jewish man from georgia's going to send it and we won the presidential race so i would say for me. It's a sweep. it's a three no sleep. So the the the feeling is happy. Rene speaking of january six. What are your thoughts on everything that occurred that day. Yeah you know. It's kinda like we all felt something was gonna happen. I was worried after november. Third ominously like when when the number started tied and we could see that joe biden. Really my win this thing you know. We all started to get a little nervous even here in georgia the aquarium shutdown coach color. They all boarded up their their buildings because we were all expecting some type of reaction and not a good one so then to see what happened on january six and see the lack of policing that was there it was it was disappointing and most call a spade a spade. It was terrorism. Domestic terrorism is the term that we should use for that renee montgomery innately. Sorry thanksgiving i was going to say what is say about the platform that the wnba has like you guys like even a month before. Colin kaepernick took a knee in two thousand sixteen. The wnba pre-game conference about police brutality. You guys were black. Lives matters t shirts before it was even a thing. Guys always been the leader at the forefront say about the platform that you guys have in the work that you guys have been doing you know. I hope people start to licking because a lot of brands. A lot of sponsors. They don't see the value in in women would say 'cause you know. I think i saw a tweet. From china robinson that said of sponsorship for women athletics how chow especially now knowing the impact that a women's league not just so a player but a whole week and have i don't understand why there's no interest but i do hope that just seeing how things transpired and how everyone to see what's going on. I hope that there is some value added to women now. Renee montgomery of the atlanta dream is joining us. This morning on keyshawn jay williams zubin were presented by progressive. Insurance and rene is with us on the goodyear hotline to robinson by the way. Espn women's college basketball analyst shaina. Yes shoutout. I want to ask you this because people may not want to go back to leffler because i think this is just so fascinating with how clear she's been in how clear you guys have been She used to be for people. That aren't aware that maybe don't follow the dream on everyday basis. She used to be a constant present. at games. a practice you'd be a team functions. He was always be sitting in the front row. She was very active owner. Obviously things have changed when she went to the senate got other responsibilities. I just wonder what your relationship is with her. The team's relationship with her you know even before the senator race i would just fear before the games. We've been to her house. Where team function. But i mean any of the players know you're not usually best friends with owner in general you know you typically would talk more to your g Even when it comes to contracts and stuff so we did see her there and we would wait and she was you know. I know that she released herself. From you. know day to day duties as she became a senator but she was president and the wnba. I know probably the letter was her trying to distance herself. Thing is how she's republican and the wnba. Is you know highly majority. Lgbt in black and brown community. So i can understand why she's trying to distance ourselves but it wasn't the case beforehand. Rene we're kind of personal discussions if any at all have you had. We'll often about social justice nine. I'm you know this was a typical owner-player relationship. So you know. I never talked to my minnesota on her about social justice. And i know that this time is is different but by the time that all of these things try Started to unfold. You know it was already. She was already too far. gone by. then how do you feel now that everything is transpired and she still co owner of the team for me and this is gonna be unpopular to say but for me. I'm sure she's not the only owner. That probably feels the way she feels. And so i hope that the wnba and hope that you know even her you know i. I've already posed the question. I don't know why he would want to own a wnba team. If you have to write a letter to the commissioner opposing. Everything that that team is standing for you know. Our team is the atlanta dream. And i don't know if people know that's from martin. Luther king's dream speech. That's how we got our name so if you oppose everything that we fundamentally stand for. I don't see how you can build a relationship there. I don't know why you'd want to be there

Democrats take control of US Senate after Ossoff, Warnock win
"Politics and the us began on wednesday with a slightly different tone amid fresh election results from georgia where to democrats beat incumbent republicans to give them control of the us. Senate democrats jon. Ossoff and raphael warnock beat incumbent. Republican senators david purdue and kelly leffler respectively. The pair of democratic wins brings a fifty fifty split in the senate effectively giving democrats control of the chamber. Since democratic vice president-elect kamla harris is the tiebreaker many republican lawmakers have spoken out saying that president donald trump and his rhetoric are responsible for the race results. Utah senator mitt. Romney said quote. It turns out that telling voters that the election is rigged is not a great way to turn out your
Pro-Trump mob storms the US Capitol, touting 'Stop the Steal'
"Insurrection resulting in scenes unlike any in living memory after days of prodding by president donald trump rioters descended on the capitol building in washington. Yesterday congress had gathered for a joint session to certify. President elect joe biden's victory under the provisions of s con res-. One cinema will now proceed as a body. Several republican lawmakers such as ted cruz began lodging. They're expected objections. The tallies recent polling shows that thirty nine percent of americans believe the election. That just occurred quote was rigged the midway through proceedings representatives were forced to flee from the chamber ushered into bunkers through underground passageways. Seeding the floor to a violent group of trump's supporters for hours tense standoff ensued as rioters posed for pictures in house speaker. Nancy pelosi's office and made off with capital podiums. And for those hours. Mr trump stayed silent. i call on president trump. Go on national television now to fulfill his oath and defend the constitution and demand and then to this siege. The eventually issued a video statement telling the rioters to leave but a condemnation. It was not. We have to have peace so go home. we love you. You're very special. You've seen what happens. You see the way others are treated. That are so bad and so evil. I know how you feel but go home and go home. It peace after the building had been cleared. Lawmakers returned and carried on with the vote confirming mr biden early this morning with little further drama and mr trump at last committed to a peaceful transfer of power via staffers. Tweet even as he continued to insist. The election was unfair. Like so much that has happened in the trump presidency. It's all shocking. But not entirely surprising leaving those on capitol hill to survey the damage to a story building and to american democracy. Now the site of an angry mob. Rampaging through america's legislature wandering around the senate floor breaking into legislator's offices. That's not the sort of thing that's happened before john. Fashion is the economist. us digital editor. Most americans think of that sort of thing if they think of it at all as the kind of thing that happens in other countries and i think that the the political and psychological fallout from that will last a very long time it really was watershed moment for american politics. Not in a good way and walk through exactly what happened here. So what happened was the donald trump spoke at a rally at around noon on the sixth and he told his supporters that he would never concede and he told them to walk to the capitol and show strength and be strong now. What they showed of course was a deeply trumpian. Facsimile of strengthens the temper tantrum. And while the joint session of congress to certify joe biden's victory was underway. They overwhelmed capital police and got into the building. The session was adjourned shortly after two pm. I think the secret service whisked away. Mike pence who is presiding because the vice president is also president of the senate capital office. Buildings were evacuated members shelter in place for rioters to all appearances ran rampant through the capital. And eventually the riott sort of petered out. They didn't really seem to have a plan or goal beyond that show of petulance that they convinced themselves with strength and shortly after eight pm the to has of congress gaveled back in and After some lengthy speeches they did their constitutional duty and certify. Joe biden's win and there will be big questions about how. The rioters managed the breach in the first place. I mean how do they organize beforehand. And were they arrested afterward while the rioters have been far right trump supporters and they organize themselves at least partly using social media for days leading up to yesterday. They discussed on social media how to sneak guns in. Dc which has strict gun control laws outta dodge and spread thin. The police presence one of them fantasize about setting up the gallows outside congress and hanging elected officials. That seems to be how they organize themselves. Were there any arrests. The capitol police let a lot of people leave with just a warning Now more arrests may follow the rioters. A lot of them for reasons that baffoni took pictures of themselves and can easily be identified but even so even if more residue follow to my mind the difference between the very thin police presence and the way they treated armed insurrectionists who broke into the capitol building and terrorized. Legislators and the way police treated and prepared for black lives matter protesters this summer in full riot gear and nasa physical presence. That difference is really striking and what about republicans in congress. What do you think the repercussions will be for them. The ones who supported mr trump's efforts to to to question to overturn the vote. The question of repercussions is really interesting. You know one reason. Republicans lined up behind the president. Trump's claims of manipulation election thefts which i strongly suspect they knew were false is because they believe the price for not doing so was greater than the price for doing so they worried that trump would support a primary challenge to them and twenty twenty two or twenty twenty four. That was their concern now. Kelly leffler is one of the two senators just lost in georgia. Initially said she would object but after the riots. Change your position. I don't think she would've done that if he genuinely believed the election was stolen. I suspect the same is true of a lot of the others who back president trump's challenges. I suspect they didn't really think that the election was stolen. They thought it was a smart political. Move not to get crosswise with president trump. now anyone who cares about the health of american democracy democrat republican libertarian. Anyone who likes living democracy. Hope that the senators and congressmen who tried to overturn election will pay a heavy price. But whether they actually will. I don't know that i'd bet on it. Most of them from safe seats. What about the republican party. More generally will they abandon trumpism. This does all of this demonstrate. The very real costs of trumpism. The more interesting question is how the republican party reaction. Toto because as popular is trump is with base voters. He's deeply unpopular with the broader electorate. Remember the he entered office with republicans in control of the white house and both chambers of congress and he will leave with democrats in the same position. The last time that happened the last time they had that trifecta party switch was eighteen. Ninety two and the results this year showed the republicans really can win with women and with non white voters with the right candidates. And so it's in. The party's interest to broaden its view and leave. trump isn't behind. And you know even people. Who seem like staunch allies like josh hawley and ted cruz. They want trump gone to right. They don't want him to be the twenty two thousand four nominee. They want to be the twenty twenty four nominee. But there's a first mover problem. Nobody wants to stick his neck out and get chopped off but if nobody moves. All trump retains as power which nobody also really wants and i would guess that they're hoping some combination of legal and financial trouble post-presidency sort of does him in politically so they won't have to and you know they may be right. They may get lucky.

Senator kelly lovelier david purdue and democratic hopefuls. Jon saw and raphael warnock. The war for the majority of the senate comes down to georgia dish here and we need you all of us to stay in that breach. It looks like y'all ready for election five calls or texts today about voting. We'll keep the liberals away. It is time to vote like we have never voted before georgia. Each of them has been trying desperately to get their voters to show up at the polls second time never before has a runoff election in this state met so much it will determine who is in charge of the. Us senate sets the agenda. Who sets the policy with control of the senate on the line. People far away from georgia are all wound up in the states businesses from the white house. Twitter fight like hell. I'll tell you right to hollywood. Work isn't done. Everybody matters who wins. Get out and vote the outrage over a stunning phone. Call between the president and georgia's secretary of state. That's all the talk the night before the election. I just wanna find eleven thousand. Seven hundred eighty. You hear the president repeatedly asking brad rapids burger to give him more votes than biden's eleven thousand seven hundred and seventy nine vote lead in georgia and the hour. Long call lip brad. I gotta get. I have to find twelve thousand votes. And i have them times a lot to. What are we gonna do here. But i only need eleven thousand votes us. I need eleven thousand bucks. Give me a break. And and i'm not looking to blame anybody. I'm not just saying that you know under new cows and under new views of of the election results we won the election but rams burger who seek threats to his life over. All of this said no way. And there's nothing wrong with saying that you know that you've recalculated for mr president determines that you have is the data you have is wrong. You should want to have an accurate election. And you're a republican. We believe what we have an accident election. The georgia secretary of state continue to reject the president's wild claims of election fraud on good morning america. Did you consider it a lawful requests and the president asks you to find the votes lawyer. All i know is that we're going to follow the law. Follow the process truth matters. And we've been fighting these rumors for last two months. There are many who believe that it is no accident. That president trump is focused. Many of his claims a fraud on fulton county the largest in the state. It isn't just a blue county. It's also a largely black county and the president is being accused of trying to overturn the minority vote. Probably county is totally corrupt. They cheated like nobody's ever cheated before later. In the call. President trump even suggests that by refusing to hand the president. The november election robbins burger was hurting the chances of republicans running in the runoff. And because what you've done to the president a lot of people are going out to vote you would be respected if really respected if this could be straightened out before the election you have a big election coming up on tuesday. What's happening in georgia is a perfect storm. It is a telenovela in the making. It's gotta be confusing for republican georgia voters to hear that the elections in georgia and trustworthy at our fraudulent and have been manipulated and then wondered. Ask themselves well. Then why should i bother to tonight. President trump is still holding onto his false claims of fraud and still talking poorly about state. Officials were literally speaking truth to power. There's no way we lost your. This will be here a year and a half. And i'm going to be campaigning against your governor. And you're crazy secretary of state. We are a party of law. and order. georgia's lieutenant governor jeff dunkin who's both a republican and a trump supporter says. He wishes someone at the white house could have kept the president from making that phone. Call right before the election. What do you think about the possibility of folks looking into whether or not. The president broke a law with that phone call. I'm not a lawyer. So i'm going to let the lawyers go figure that out but i am qualified to tell you that that was an inappropriate phone. Call the longer that we try to use the excuse of voter fraud and misinformation to be the reason why we lost this presidential election. The longer it's gonna take for us to build our next platform. Duncan is part of a group of republicans. Who run this state. And we'll tell you to your face. That joe biden won the election here in that saying. So it's what's right. This is all about trust. I've got to look in the mirror. But more importantly i've got look at my three boys in the face. I spent all day trying to tell them to do the right thing. Always do the right thing. I can't imagine walking in that house one night and telling them yeah. I know i couldn't do the right thing. Today was on me. The forty five year old says. He's confident his two candidates can win despite the drama from pennsylvania avenue. I can't think of a single scenario where that phone call for.

"David Perdue and Kelly Leffler have now they long been opposed to just frankly, recklessly get doling out money to Americans because there was no plan for there was no there was no laser focus on who would receive the funds. So they had been opposed to now they've switched and they've taken a pro position on the $2000. Give away which is what it is that just think about. I can tell you people that I know very, very well. Who who fall within the income parameters that would make them eligible to receive this money. But they have not taken an economic hit at all. Not in the slightest and frankly they're spending less money now than they have. Historically, we're talking about young people, but but young up and campers they're well educated and gainfully employed and doing just fine. They have not taken a hit. And if they're looking at an infusion of more money it just to what end? I'm scratching my head trying to figure out what the president is doing. It, Um It looks as though he is trying to give a gift to my way of thinking. To the Democrats, and especially in this Georgia run off race. I'm just absolutely stumped by it, and I'm wondering, Am I alone on this or or do other see it the same way? Well, then I look at today's Wall Street Journal. And they've got a column I'll share with you. Here's what they had to say They titled this McConnell at the Bridge. President Trump has always put his personal interest above nearly everything else, and Republicans are paying the political price. Mr Trump lost his reelection reelection bid to Joe Biden. And now he may cost Republicans the Senate to Mr Trump lost his reelection bid, even as Republicans did better down ballot because more voters liked his politics than liked him. The president hewed to a largely conservative agenda as long as he needed to maintain GOP support. But now that he'll soon Lee Washington he's throwing that over to punish Republicans and anyone else. Refuses to indulge in his fantasies about overturning the election. That's the only explanation for his decision to join Bernie Sanders and Chuck Schumer in pushing for the $2000 covert relief checks after his own negotiators had settled for $600 and the bill had passed Congress. Mr Trump is trying to punish Mitch McConnell and the majority leader on gone soon a member of the Senate leadership because they have recognized that Mr Biden won the election. Treetops quarter is saying, Can you imagine if the Republicans stole a presidential election from the Democrats? All hell would break out? That was his tweet on Tuesday from Florida, he went on to say Republican leadership on Lee wants the path of least resistance. Our leaders parent technically not me, of course, are pathetic. They only know how to lose PS. I got many senators not sure what that means. They go on to say. Actually, GOP Senate Senator David Perdue won more votes and a bigger vote share than Mr Trump did in Georgia, and Mr Trump was the first Republican toe lose the state since 1992. Susan Collins also did better in Maine. Meanwhile, Mr Trump's personal and political unpopularity helped to drag down incoming Cory Gardner in Colorado. With two Georgia Senate seat runoff looming in in January, January 5th. Mr Trump seems intent on hurting the GOP chances while blaming Senate leaders in advance If the Republican incumbents lose Never mind that he has put Republicans on the spot by siding with Democrats on the $2000 checks. Mr McConnell tried to navigate this mudslide from Mar a Lago as best he could on Tuesday by announcing he'll hold a vote on the checks. Mr Trump's other demands in the future. The deal could include the $2000 checks, plus a repeal of section 2 30 of the Communications Decency Act, plus an investigation of voter fraud. This is the right policy choice since the $2000 checks are unnecessary, and the truly needy have access to expanded jobless benefits, food stamps, child care subsidies and much, much more. As for the politics, this is damage control. Georgia Senator George Senators Kelly Leffler and David Perdue quickly endorsed the $2000 checks, and Mr McConnell will take the heat for blocking them. Majority leader knows most GOP senators opposed, adding another three. They say 350 $million billion rather to the deficit while setting an awful precedent for the next recession. See how this plays out in Georgia. But the fault here isn't Mitch McConnell's. The Political damage to the GOP comes from Donald Trump, who is lashing out at all the sundry and defeat no matter if it helps also helps. You re elected Democratic Senate. So what do you think? What's your read on it? This is theirs is Does he have something up his sleeve? Is there something that will That will work out miraculously in the 11th hour of this, or maybe beyond the 11th hour and and turn this back around Or is the Wall Street Journal on to something here? What do you make of it? And I noticed as we as we look at these kinds of questions We have found ourselves in a very unique situation. You talk about council culture. We talk about that quite often. And it's not just the progressive woke people who are in support of canceling the thoughts and expressions of people with whom they disagree. But it seems as though in general politics it's the same thing. It's not enough to to to completely and totally support your candidate. Your party. You cannot speak ill of them. But you also have to cancel others who do who call things out where they're wrong and put them in the context of your own personal life. He's your best friend in the whole world. Look out your spouse, your your loved ones, your significant other and you agree on absolutely everything. Well, I don't think you do, and that would be a very, very, very unusual set of circumstances. I believe so what? What is the consequence? What are the casualties of losing the ability? Respectfully point out areas of disagreement because you can really see how this we have shifted into. I think a very, very dangerous area. I like the idea of looking at all different sides and reaching a conclusion. I know people who cannot admit that Donald Trump as president did some very good things, and I believe he did. But conversely, there are those people who cannot best they could do not seem to be able to admit that perhaps sometimes he's made some errors and that some of his own personality and comportment Have interfered with the success that he's enjoyed politically and has had a negative impact on those around him.
