"Women from female sports Republican governor Kim Reynolds signed a bill yesterday that went into effect immediately It means student athletes in K through 12 schools and colleges in Iowa are no longer allowed to compete in sports according to their gender identity Here's Reynolds speaking during the signing ceremony It worries me that this bill is needed at all It's hard to imagine how anyone who cares about the rights of women and girls could support anything less Joining us now is grant gerlach a reporter who covers Des Moines for Iowa public radio hi grant Ice last So what else can you tell us about this law in Iowa The governor says it worries her that the bill is needed Why was it needed Why did it come about Well this has been a debate that several different states have been having When the governor signed the bill she was in the capitol rotunda yesterday and she was surrounded by this crowd of young women And she said she was doing it for them so that they don't have a spot on their team or a chance at a scholarship taken away by a transgender athlete that the governor claims would have a physical advantage But opponents say that those claims of unfair competition are exaggerated and point out that there are only a small percentage of students across the whole state who are transgender and even a smaller fraction who play sports so the way they look at it the law is a hostile law toward students who could get a lot from sports if they were allowed to participate according to their gender identity Well here's Gabby Smith a transgender girl who attends to Cora high school in decora Iowa and she spoke during a hearing on the Iowa Bill last month talking about her love for volleyball track and field and bowling If I were told I couldn't play the sports that I want to and for the gender that I identify as I would feel less about myself Like I am being forced to feel different about who I am At the same time I would be confused Because I am a girl so shouldn't I be able to play for the girls team Gary's fears have come true She can not compete in the sports that she loves How much of an impact will this have in Iowa Well that remains to be seen as I mentioned it's believed that there are only a small number of transgender athletes across the state to begin with But people who are observing this believe that in Iowa like other states that have passed these kinds of laws there's likely to be a lawsuit at some point over the validity of a law like this being in place Yeah and I wonder how similar this law in Iowa is to other laws that have been passed in Idaho Florida and Tennessee some of which are being challenged legally Right as you mentioned 11 states now that Iowa has passed a law 11 states have laws like this South Dakota just passed one last month And they're all close variations on the first law like this which was passed in Idaho in 2020 And some have slight differences when it comes to public colleges and universities and but the thing they do have in common is that they were passed in Republican led states Iowa has Republican governor Republican majorities in both chambers of the legislature and they stand in contrast to other states that are taking an inclusive approach when it comes to transgender athletes If you look at places like California.

Why Kim Reynolds' Republican State of the Union Response Matters

"Now, tonight, you know the governor of Iowa. And I'm a big Kim Reynolds fan. I'm not sure I would pick her given events to do the response tonight because it's a national security night. What do you expect from the governor if no change is made? Well, I think it's a clear contrast to you, and that's exactly why our governor from Iowa is delivering that response. It's just avoidant leadership at The White House. You look at how governor Reynolds has led in our state. Kids have been in the classroom for over the year. She helped our small businesses to reopen safely. We just signed bipartisan tax cuts into law last year. So what a contrast between what we're doing in Iowa, how we're running our state versus how things are being run here in Washington, D.C..

shot him instead On the stand Potter told defense lawyers things went chaotic during the traffic stop Potter is facing manslaughter charges which carry a maximum sentence of 15 years That's the latest I'm Julie Ryan I'm Barry riddles you're listening to masters and business on Bloomberg radio My extra special guest this week is Michael mobile He is the head of conciliate research at counterpoint global which is part of Morgan Stanley's buy side investment management group By the way I previously had one of your colleagues on as a guest Dennis lynch was quite fascinating He's really an interesting individual Dennis is awesome Yeah not just not only a great investor but a great a great guy And these are things that tend to get underestimated by the way is that organizational cultures are really important And he's just created an environment that I think is about a good environment for an investment organization as possible And that's very challenging to do People don't realize how hard especially during COVID and everybody remote maintaining that is really difficult I agree And I think part of it is that there are two things that I particularly admire One is there's a clear drive toward learning being a learning organization So there's a premium on people thinking and learning And so forth And second is I think he thinks a lot about trying to put people in a position to be as effective as they can be So putting people in a position to do what they do well and what they're passionate about Yeah great guy And I love that episode by the way and I think that it doesn't do a lot of those things So it's great for you No that was a lot of fun So let's talk a little bit about market efficiency One of the questions that when we were kicking around some ideas for this is have the markets gotten more efficient over the last 20 years Given the speed information moves around given the integration of technology and unofficial intelligence is the 2021 market the same market as the 2001 month I think the answer to those questions are always no that they're not the same markets and they're almost always grinding toward more efficiency I think if you did 2001 versus 1981 and go back over time And for all the reasons you decided that information is nearly cost costless to acquire and so forth Now the one thing I'll just say that and I by the way I'm very enthusiastic about systematic strategies and quantitative tools I think these are all things that even as discretionary investors we need to integrate these things in a very thoughtful way All that said that in active management the notion of judgment is not going to go away anytime soon And so and judgment as distinct from just forecasting or that kind of stuff But judgments are not going to go away And so we need so when you think about in the very short term so short term trading were systematic strategies are just going to be they're just so powerful If tomorrow is going to be a lot like today or day after tomorrow like today systematic things are going to be much better than humans and those kinds of environments But again if you look out 5 or ten or 15 years we talked before about these patterns of how industries evolve and so forth Machines have a very difficult time understanding those kinds of things And humans can be I think a little bit more thoughtful about understanding who might win who might lose for what reasons things like measuring culture and so on and so forth So yeah it's always it's always a tough game And I just don't see it's going to be getting a ton of ton easier over time So the market is becoming more efficient Let me ask that slightly differently or we quicker today to discount the future So and we briefly talked about the electric vehicle makers if we're looking at lucid and Tesla and rivian in those companies footnote a hundred years ago there were 90 different automobile companies before we were left with 5 and then three and now in the U.S. and now here we are with everybody rolling out EVs and lots of new EV companies coming out are we better able to look at this group and say oh yeah eventually everything's going to be EV and therefore these companies have value or are these closer to the meme stocks And I'm not asking for an opinion about any specific company I mean how are investors generalizing with any of these sectors but we can use EVs as an example I mean it's a great question And a few things come to mind The first thing I should mention there's a fairly recent academic paper This is within the last few months and we can maybe post it on the show notes or something to this effect And it studied about 10,000 IPOs since 1975 Wow And then it actually went and tracked the future earnings and discounted them back to a present value and said how close was the IPO price to the actual performance of the business over time And it turns out probably not shockingly is that on average it was about right but there is massive variance And there is massive skew So the answer is the market tends to get this broadly speaking but for any particular company not particularly well So that's my first comment to say I will enter all this with some degree of humility The second thing is there's a concept when we talk about this the book as well but it's very well known concept of reflexivity So we tend to think about fundamentals and price action as two separate things right So people always draw the prices of thing that's squiggling all over the place and fundamentals as things sort of plods along And so prices are chasing around What George Soros and many others have talked about in the concept of reflectivity these two things feed back to.

Is the Republican Party Radicalizing Against Democracy With Voting Bills?

"Good evening from new york. I'm chris hayes. As the biden administration the democratic congress and the country as a whole trying to claw our way out of an unprecedented national crises the republican party coast to coast has found its mission for the year. Twenty twenty one make it harder for americans to vote right now. We're on track to see the largest rescue bill. In recent memory signed into law by president biden. This week we would provide direct relief to americans billions for vaccination programs money to reopen schools. Keep restaurants open and not a single republican either house or the senate has voted for it instead after losing the popular vote in seven of the last eight presidential elections going all the way back to nineteen ninety. Two republicans are laser focused on restricting. Voting accents brennan centers tracking all the bills aimed at restricting access to the polls list includes two hundred fifty three bills introduced pre filed carryover this year in forty three states in georgia of course already notorious for having absurdly long lines to vote with residents waiting up to eleven hours to cast their ballots fall. Republican governor brian camp has waged a long battle to make the voting process. More difficult in his previous. Role is georgia's secretary state. He oversaw the closing polling places in the purging of hundreds of thousands of registered voters polls. Thanks in part to the efforts to stacey abrams and other activists on the ground registering hundreds of thousands of new voters. Turn out in two thousand and twenty in georgia in the election was unbelievably high smashing records. And of course also helping to repel joe biden. The white house georgia's election last november was also just about the most scrutinized and scrutinize audited of any state in the nation. Remember this they counted the votes three times in that state. they did a hand recount of five million ballots. There is zero doubt whatsoever. The results in georgia were accurate and more georgians than ever before me. Their voices heard so what did state republicans do just yesterday. The state senate passed a bill limiting. No excuse absentee voting which is one point three million georgians including four hundred and fifty thousand. Republicans voted in two thousand and twenty just last week. Republicans at the state house passed a sweeping piece of legislation cutting weekend days from early voting restricting. The use of drop boxes adding new requirements for absentee voting restricting. The amount of time election officials have to send out mail ballots and voters have to return them and prohibiting the distribution of food and water to voters waiting. Mine fact making it a misdemeanor handing out food or drink to waiting in the longest lines in the country. That's all because there are any actual problems with the administration of elections in georgia. It's because the republicans lost it's because they lost and they think these things will make it easier for them to win next time but keep in mind. This is not just happening in georgia which is of course the center of a lot of attention as swing state with the closest election last cycle. Take a look at how crazy things are in iowa not a state where republicans disappointing results last year. Okay in fact i will. Republicans did great in twenty twenty flipped to house. Seats held onto a third. And you know what loads of islands voted breaking the all time general election turnout record and they had pretty expansive voter. Access including early voting absentee voting and same day registration and in. I woke him up again. All of that. Work in republicans favor. Donald trump carried the state joni ernst reelected. They've flipped to houses. So what is the problem. Well the problem is at the. Republican party is radicalizing against democracy almost as a guiding principle. They fear voter access. They want to shut it down. They are using the cover of the big lie. The wildly insidious and poisonous lie. The election was stolen propagated by the former president and his party and written media to just make it harder to vote and not only harder for specifically disfavored groups like african americans are democrats. Were generally although these measures will disproportionately hurt them. It's major part of all this but also just horrid vote and get all like as a kind of ideological fixation. There are a lot of weight. Republicans i will. Who will have a hard time voting. Thanks the measure signed into law today by republican governor kim reynolds new law cuts the states early voting period down by nine days. It tightens the timeline. For when absentee ballots must be received. In order to be counted it strips county auditors of much of their discretion and running elections including establishing satellite in-person early voting sites which are useful and mailing absentee ballot request forms voters. Who didn't specifically asked for one. It limits who can return. Voters absentee ballot. And get this. It closes the polls at our earlier on election day. Just think about that so it would that for a second. What conceivable argument is there to close the polls in our earlier like the fraudsters show up in the last hour of the day to do their fraud. No no there is no argument. There is not even of an argument.

How different hospitals battle the pandemic to save lives

"Thanksgiving holiday arrives during an escalating calamity. More than one million people are testing positive for Corona virus every week. Now that is a high enough number that there is a good chance that some of your family friends or co workers. Among them. It's certainly been true for me these last several weeks if you want to identify and especially hard hit state, just throw a dart at a map because the odds are that any state you hit will qualify. This morning we visit three. Sebastian Martinez Valdivia is a K B A. And Missouri Blake farmer is with WPL and in Nashville, Tennessee, and Bram Sable Smith. Is with Wisconsin public radio. Welcome to all of you. Good morning. Thank you. Morning, and Bram. How widespread is this surge in Wisconsin, where you are? It's quite widespread, you know, by September, public health experts were really sounding the alarm about the rise. In cases we're seeing in the state initially were seen surges and cities where the university started located, but very quickly. The virus is rampant in communities. All over Wisconsin. As you know, Steve cases they're just the beginning of a covert search. So our hospital started filling up quickly. And maybe most concerned involves our death. Worried. We reported the record 104 deaths yesterday. We're losing about 52 people every day, on average and over 3000 people. Wisconsin have died of covered 19 so far, and I should also note we are seeing a slight downturn. Our cases are slightly our cases are dropping ever so slightly, But we're still very much at the top of the mountain and Steve the death rates very similar here in Tennessee. But cases are still climbing often more than 4000 Day. And As we found throughout this pandemic destined to lag those big spikes in new cases by a couple of weeks, So Tennessee's bracing for what could be to come because so far they're just has no sign existing of cases, letting up. Blake, over here in neighboring Missouri were in a similar ballpark in terms of new cases on deaths. But the really troubling trend has been in hospitalizations, which are high and continuing to rise on. Hospitals are really struggling with capacity and a lot of parts of the state. Well, let's talk a little bit more about hospitals or doing in Missouri, then Yeah, well, one of the big problems is a lot of the smaller rural hospitals that traditionally transfer patients toe urban and metro areas for intensive care are really struggling to find beds because those larger hospitals are already full. S O. For example, Cocks Health, which is in Springfield, the third biggest city here in Missouri, has expanded its hospital capacity multiple times over the past nine months, but it's still had to turn people away. Steve Edwards is the CEO there. So we will have added 147 bed capacity, which is probably bigger than the Average hospital state, Missouri, he says the hospital keeps hitting what it would have considered a worst case scenario every couple of weeks. But adding rooms isn't really the half of it the biggest challenge, according to Edward to staffing, so training staff to care for covert patients, and then the draining work of actually caring for them. So that's the crisis in Missouri, Bram Sable Smith, Let's go back to Wisconsin Howard doctors trying to keep up where you are. You know, October the state we converted our state fairgrounds into what's called an alternative care facility to handle the excess capacity. We have so about 89% of the hospital beds available in the entire state for being occupied right now, in some regions, that's higher. At the alternative care facility. There's only nine patients right now, though. That's in part because it's voluntary to go there. It's also because it's where patients will go to recover kind of after they've cleared a hurdle in their covert treatment. The idea behind that is To free up resource is inside the hospitals to treat on influx of patients. Researchers like ICU beds that are in very short supply here and brand that the corps of Engineers build alternative care sites here in Tennessee is well, but increasingly, there's a concern about having the staff to open them. And a big reason for that is that so many nurses and doctors air out themselves with Kovar 19 or because they have to quarantine Well, Blake. What are hospitals in Tennessee, saying about that? Well, they're really starting to sound the alarm. In a way we haven't heard for a long time. Hospital administrators have wanted to make sure people knew that they would be able to handle the usual patients along with covert, and that's just less. So now. Dr Katrina Green works in an HCIA emergency room here in Nashville. We're worried about what the delays and care will mean for our patients, and I am personally terrified in my hospital. Being full could result in someone dying in the waiting room. The situation has become particularly severe in parts of Texas as well like El Paso and love IQ. For now that they're able to transport covert patients to other parts of the state. But there's going to be a time likely when those hospitals air capacity to You know, I spent some time last week and one of the five covert units at the University Hospital here in Madison, Wisconsin, where I live. I spoke to Mary Lowe. She's a nursing assistant in the unit. She's been there since the pandemic began. This has been going on for a long time. And right now it doesn't feel like there's an end in sight. Even though there will be a time it doesn't necessarily feel like that right now. You know that unit as 28 beds and they've been consistently full and she says, it's it's exhausting and remember, the whole reason for shutdowns early on, was to prevent hospitals from being overrun will now in a lot of these states like ours, Those restrictions are long gone, and hospitals are now nearing the edge of that cliff. But political leaders are really finding it hard to go backward after lifting restrictions, months, Okay, granted, that's granted. That's true. But suggestion haven't some political leaders at least faced pressure to approve more safety measures. Yeah, There's definitely been pressure here in Missouri. The State Hospital Association actually sent a letter last week to a Republican governor Mike Parson, urging him to kind of issue one of those statewide mass mandate, saying the Wolf is at the door. But like a lot of Republican governors, he's rejected that call just to the north of us, though. In Iowa, the story's a little different. So Governor Kim Reynolds, there, also a Republican, was initially against the mask mandate, and she even said that city's couldn't issue their own mandates back in the summer, But she recently reversed course. I would have seen one of the biggest surges in cases and hospitalizations in the country per capita. I will has roughly half the population of misery, but it's almost in the same ballpark in terms of new cases. S O earlier this month, Reynolds did end up issuing a statewide mass mandate as well as some restrictions on public and private gatherings, with exceptions for some businesses and religious services.

States are imposing more COVID restrictions despite pre-election predictions

"You know from the beginning of this pandemic all the way back in in january and february has been painfully clear that for donald trump and most of the congressional republican leadership that cova was primarily a political problem. That had to be managed because of the election not a health problem. A political problem with is on november and one of the biggest giveaways of their possession of their position is what they projected onto their political opponents. They couldn't believe that the steps that some governors mayors we're taking a combat. The virus were driven by serious concerns. That cova was deadly and needed to be combated. Instead they suggested it was awesome elaborate conspiracy to politically kneecap donald trump. If it ends up that biden wins in november. I hope he does. And i don't think he will. But if he does. I guarantee you the week after the election. Suddenly all those democratic governors all those democratic mayors will say. Everything's magically better. go back to work. Go back to school. Suddenly the problems are solved. Won't even have to wait for biden to be sworn in i guarantee you. That's ted cruz guarantee a week after the election. I guarantee you that all those democratic governors and mayors will say the problem solved no more cova restrictions. They'll take them all away. It was all just to her trump. Well guess what the election's over and what's happening in the opposite of what ted cruz cruz. Guaranteed in fact democratic. Governors like gretchen whitmer of michigan and kate brown of oregon who impose restrictions early in the pandemic have now imposed new restrictions amid covid spikes in their states. That's not all republicans who are abandoning their pre election positions. They're the ones who were doing that. And embracing public. Health measures governor gary herbert of doug burgum. North dakota are now changing their tune. There embracing masks after months of resistance. And then there's i will republican governor kim reynolds who vowed back in july quote. No i'm not going to mandate masks. I trust islands. Reynolds was photographed maskless at an indoor pro-trump event in october. That's her giving a high five in a crowded mostly maskless room and not only did she not object to trump holding one of his superspreader rallies. Interstate a few days later. She was spotted in the crowd at the rally. Not wearing a mask. Well now guess what i was. Hospitals are full across the state. There's barely an icu. Bed to be found if you get kobe tomorrow and you have to go the issue. Tough luck it's a nightmare and last governor can reynold who wants to spanish mass mandate. Does he feel good measure. Guess what she did she issued a statewide mask mandate along whether restrictions. It's a good thing too much too late. But it's the opposite of what ted cruz said would happen. Who is really playing politics. Do you think as hospitals fill up at americans conservative liberal being cut down by the virus there are still republicans who are treating.

The covert tracking project reports more than 73,000 Americans were being treated in hospitals yesterday for covert 19. That's a record. Some Republican governors are changing course on mask mandates. As cases spike around the nation. Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds became the latest to issue a mandate. Utah Governor Gary Herbert issued a mask mandate last week, It's hospitals across his state approached capacity President elect Joe Biden with a dire warning about what might happen if President Trump doesn't start working with him on the Corona virus crisis or people may die. If we don't coordinate if we have to wait until January, 20th to start that planning. Puts us behind over a month month and a half on so it's important that it be done that to be coordination. Now, even members of the president's task force are urging the White House to share information. I mean, the virus is not going to stop and call a time out while things change. We want to really get the ball rolling as we get into January, February and March. We want a smooth process with that, and the way you do, that is by essentially having to two groups speak to each other and exchange information. The head of Trump's Operation Warp Speed is also sounding. The alarm is Our focus to make sure that we're going to save people's life and anything that may slow that process or create any disruption. Eyes something that where is that worries us appropriately, But the president is stonewalling, refusing to concede and proceed with the peaceful transition of power. It doesn't appear that the president is going to come around. Anytime soon and admit defeat. So what are you going to do? What options? Do you have to try and ensure that you are ready to go on day one deer with every individual's organization in the country from business, the labor Republicans Democrats to try to pull together a serious and consistent plan, so we're ready on day one, so it would make a lot easier if the president participate. I I am hopeful that the president will, um be mildly more light. Before we get to January 20th. The president is all but ignoring the covert crisis. Even his cases search.

The judge wasn't having it. I heard somebody else say something. Tell me why that's not here say, come on now. In Nevada, Republican lawyers claim their observers weren't close enough, The judge snapped. At what point does this get ridiculous in Pennsylvania, Trump's lawyers claimed their observers were being blocked, then admitted they were in the room.

"Don't know how to give up. All right. That is the governor of Iowa Kim Reynolds talking about the devastation now, this is all throughout the mid west in America and the amount of damage record floods unprecedented, damage and difficulty that the people of Iowa are facing and what happens next governor? I I know I speak on behalf of everybody on this program. We're really sorry about all you've been through and tell us what the latest is. Oh, thank Sean. I really appreciate that. And appreciate you really helping us bring awareness of the just a catastrophic situation that we're dealing with not only in Iowa. But my good friend to the west governor, Rick. It's in Nebraska. Is just it's heart wrenching. It's horrific. When you see it look when I did the flyover yesterday morning along than I mean, look like an ocean and to see, you know, generational farms that were over topped to think about communities where I sat down with the mayor and here that two thirds of your community. Your your city has been wiped out we have sewer and water treatment facilities that have been compromised. It's just it's almost overwhelming. But at every community that I was in the first responders the emergency managers that teamwork in coordination, and they all said this Trump federal to state to local has been phenomenal. And we didn't have a lot of time with this one. So we had to react really really quickly and just getting people evacuated. We had communities that access has been cut off. And we had community is doing rescues are rescue efforts from about. And you know, it goes on and on and we're just getting started. We're in this for the long governor. What is the I know you were pretty successful in the evacuation. What is the long-term damage in all of this while we're still assessing that right now? But it's it is going to be just significant. And I appreciate you know, the president's response to this. He has I talked to his representatives at the White House. I had a call yesterday from secretary Sonny Perdue the agricultural impact allowed. We have been after Ben after Ben that his full of grain and elevators that have a lot of grain. That's lost. We have livestock dot that's been lost. We have just tremendous infrastructure problems. Not only with our main interstates and highways, but a lot of secondary roads that are going to be impacted. I've had a call from administrator Linda McMahon. So what do we can talk about? You know, let's to put a strategy in place. We have to see what we can do immediately. Then we have to have a long-term plan. As well. But just them reaching out to me that say we're aware of the situation. We know what's going on. Here's I received information from the small business administrator McMahon this morning about how we can access grants and funding to help relocate businesses and get people back in their homes. I talked to secretary Chao this morning as well. There's an opportunity for us to access at our early release of emergency funding for you from the US DOT federal highway administration to get the, you know, the infrastructure up and going so we can move commerce in and out of the state. And so it's just an I pulled all of my cabinet members together too. So that we're seamlessly looking for ways that we can respond and get the damage assessments down. So that we can get the information to the different cabinet the different areas to help help pull the resources and really start to rebuild and recover. Well, no, the president tweeted out his team is staying in very close contact with you. And also local officials managing the floods and supporting the first responders and long-term you're going to need some support which by the way, you know, the American people the most generous on earth. I'm sure that whatever is needed. They'll step up and help their fellow Americans out what needed and you just see it over and over the sense of community. I don't know if I said this I tell you. We're just been I've been going twenty four seven, but we have vice president Pence. It's going to be today. I'm meeting him and governor rickets and Omaha. We're going to do a fly over you really need to see it to really get a sense of how you know the amount of sweating. It looked like an ocean as I drove over on Sunday. So I mean, it's just I can't think the outreach and just a willingness to say we stand ready, you know, to help wherever we can and to help expedite the process. And that's so important because you know, we tend to look at government and bureaucracy and red tape we're going to have to figure out how to be innovative in quick. In coordinating resources to get this done to to really starts recovery process. So I'm so glad you expect. This is going to impact potentially some of the farmland in Iowa, which we as a country rely on so much. Yeah. I'm really nervous about I mean where resilient. We'll come back. But just the fact that you know, we've got we've got corn. That's not that's gone that this is when they'd be moving it to market and lot of that is an insured. Just a while ago. So we've got an issue there. We gotta get rid of the water and get the field back in shape. We have to make sure the roads are okay. So that we can start to plant for the new season. You know, that's an issue. I couple of my farmers down in one of our small counties in southwest Iowa said this is just candidates. This is one person that's talking about that area. Three hundred ninety thousand bushels of soybeans over a million bushels of corn that have been impacted and we're still assessing it. So, but you know, what we've got some of the farmers and and the entire world we take very seriously our role in feeding and fueling the world. And we're doing more on lesson with technology and innovation are gonna get the sand out of the field. We're gonna rebuild we're going to be ready to go. You know, we'll just we just have to. That's why we've started recovery today. I mean, we have to be sure that we're doing everything we can that when they get ready to get in the field and to get the start the new season that we can get them there that the roads are ready to go, and that, you know, in the fields are ready to go. And so. That's a lot of what we're working on an also just in our communities getting people back into housing and getting our businesses relocated. So that we can not lose that commerce in these small communities across you know, across the western side of the state. No, the president the vice president they'll be all over it. And I'm sure emergency funding will be appropriated as it should be. So I just want you to know the rest of the country, isn't you know, you're on our thoughts and prayers. We wish you the best. And so sorry this happened. I know how traumatic it can be for people that losing everything their farms their homes and things may seem bleak now, but these waters vulgar seed and life will go on and until then American standby ready to help thank you, and we're resilient. We are. We are tough. That's true. We New Yorkers are kind of tough to but we care about our friends at Iowa. Okay. Deal. Love for calling.

But with the goal is designed to see if when they throw that out there if the person will be like flustered thrown off by it. And I don't know whether this question is to suss out gay people. Yes. Or to say, are you homophobic? I don't think it's the latter. Well, what if phrased weird it shouldn't the NFL has no gay players? How concerned could they be about it? How concerned are you that that gave player would be on the team? That's that's how you I mean. Not really how you you out homophobia by listening to people what they say. And then you say, and when I say something stupid you go. That's not a okay, that's not appropriate. I guess it. Sorry. I guess it's the last couple of years because of New York Giants cornerback, which that's for sure I wear and I wear it for this reason. So the New York. It's cornerback ally. Apple was also asked this and. Ryan Kalugin who is a former NFL player who's now openly gay. So it wasn't openly gay, but he was playing, but he said that this questions like this have a really chilling effect on players. It's terrible from morale. And if he said if I had been asked this when I was closeted in the league, it would have scared the shit out of me, I played football as a cover for being gay. And I thought that kind of stuff would have never gotten asked in the NFL. So that's a bunch of bullshit. It's twenty nineteen. I'm gonna tell guy something I'm Intel straight guy, something, okay? If I'm a woman, and I can work with men, and I can not wanna fuck them. Every second of the day, you can work with other men who are just because you're in a everyone thinks just because you're in a room, and whatever I don't understand male libido. But like just because you're in a room with people, but just because you're in a room with other people in a work situation. Who may or may not be attracted to you. Or you them does not mean that you do guys wanna fuck everything all the time. We'll sure honestly. Yeah. Maybe. But the thing is is like in a situation. I mean, yes, I think some guys are constantly just horny and wanna fuck who. I don't know. But a workplace situation people could duct themselves the right way. Be you're automatically saying that. Oh, gay people. Wanna fuck you, which isn't true people may wanna fuck all the time. It doesn't mean they wanna fuck you all the time. See no your head has to literally be in the game. I mean, like, this is the same argument is don't ask don't tell no one's thinking about it. No one's thinking about it. When you're in combat when you're on a field when you're being paid a ton of money to get your fucking brain slammed to the ground thinking about everyone acts like it's just like every situation is suddenly like a work situations..

"I feel like we know Conway Twitty because we grew up in Texas. I feel like maybe not many people do Google Conway Twitty image search him. And then know that he's my psychic. We have reference blind melon Conway Twitty and spanned Al Bela who you didn't even know we've gone chef with our our music references which span hundreds of years. That's right. Well, the Rams didn't win the Super Bowl, but they still made history because Quinton Perron and Polian genie's became the first two male cheerleaders to perform at the Super Bowl both of them openly, gay, California, natives classically trained dancers and are now Los Angeles Rams cheerleaders and. To perform at the Super Bowl, which was very exciting obviously nominee people reported on that because no one is tuning into the Super Bowl to look for a change or something exciting happening. And by the way, we all know that professional cheerleading teams also have the worst sa-. But this is something that they really wanted. They had super crazy audition process. There were seventy six finalists and. Did. They just auditioned men. They really look I think they were. I think they were just looking for all sorts of looking for talent they were looking for talent. So they they were they danced in in cheerleading uniforms that didn't have pompoms or the skirt, but but still blended very nicely with their more comfortable to cheer and better for v jumps just all around like a more like, you know, athletic Lee, appropriate outfit. Sure. Yes. So you're right. Gay black men at the Super Bowl have a very easy time. If what I'm saying is when you when when he does a jump is ball isn't gonna fall out. No or under boob isn't gonna pop out. No. Yeah. So they got a lot of negative blowback when when people heard this, and they said, well, we've been able to take it because we know who has our backs our family has our backs. These ladies have our backs in the city of LA. They've got us. What optimists honestly, I would never in a million years. We like the city of LA has my back. I guess technically they do like on a legal level they do. But. Yeah. Well, also, Los Angeles. We'd love to have the sheen of liberalism. That's where I'm so. I I'm glad I'm glad he's picking up on that. Yuck. So Perron said I wanna prove that boys can dance to after college. We're not given a choice or a chance to do anything after. We're just told to get a nine to five job. And that's it. But that doesn't work for me. I'm an artist I'm a creative person. And we can do it. We can hang just great. I by the way way to get me to go to well. Wait to see pictures of the absolute. And I'd love to see the routines at do you work fucking hard. I'll tell you what football show. I want to go to I want ten minutes of football. All and I want to and a half hours of dancing, and I will fucking my ass will be in that sif. So the cheerleading captain her name is Emily, Emily, Emily, Lieber tes. She said that they really fit the Bill to be cheerleaders to more than qualified to be embassador to the community, and that they're very magnetic. And when they dance you really can't take your eyes off them and both. I guess this is according to ABC news. The Baltimore Ravens. And the Indianapolis Colts have male stunt men, which I guess just means they do tricks or no, they probably well in my estimation of what I know about male, she'll leaders, they they might technically be chillers. And that there are they're holding them up there. See? So yet these guys specifically were dancers. They were dancing with the women on the squad the New Orleans Saints also has mailed cheerleaders. But I the Rams are the are the are that they're the first to to do something like this at the Super Bowl. Now. The Rams have the best history in terms of LGBT inclusivity. They are the ones who drafted Michael Sam in two thousand fourteen who in case you forgot Michael San was the first openly gay player in fell history. He was later cut from the Rams, but. But also in two thousand seventeen the Rams were the first team to sponsor and LGBT pride events, which was nice..

"I wanna talk about the first female governor of Iowa Kim Reynolds today. Great. She is a puzzle wrapped in a pseudo coup wrapped in an escape room. Wow. I don't get her. Okay. Okay. So she's a tea party Republican. And I it was still exists Honey, and she's got all over Facebook page, which also on her Facebook page, and I will and I'll I'll post this. When we when we post this episode, but I am so tired of seeing people with lots of grandchildren in a photo together for Christmas time or Easter time or whatever time right sitting down for their portrait. And every goddamn time. There is a little girl under twelve holding a baby. And they're all the boys are just just able to stand there and do nothing. There is always a fucking dollar a no a baby like all the adults have a baby who's gonna hold the baby better. Give it to the girl. I wanna see more children holding baby. These hires? Yeah. Okay. All right. Commands for children in this episode IV album, something happened. I have I have. I wide shut it you to this. I have opened your eyes. Okay. So your eyes are white open. Yes. Yes. And so now, you will see this in my mind is have been is wide shut to this. And now there is wide open. And if you haven't seen that movie, it is exactly about being aware of social Easter portraits. Those math. Okay. So she's a Republican and. Okay. So she is and I will explain in more detail. What I mean by this? When I talk about all these issues that I want to discuss that she's handling she's either a Republican who cares or a Republican throwing large scraps of brioche at the Iowa pigeons that she rules over in an attempt to distract them from. Evil things. I don't know which worst. I don't know where she lives right now. By the way, I've got birds on the mind to children in birds 'cause I saw two crows fighting over a Cheeto, and it was it was pure beauty. Don't blame him. I says if you see a bag of Cheetos, what do you do? Oh god. What would you do for clone to? I don't know. That's not the theme song, Chester cheetah member. How awful he was. He was he was like a Hughes sort of the uncle he Joe Camel hung out for shows for sure. So here's the basic tea party stuff Kim's done. She had unapologetic racist. Steve king co-chair her campaign for governor. And her co chair for governor. And in two thousand eighteen she not only took an ax to energy efficiency programs in Iowa she signed a Bill to enact the most restrictive abortion ban in the nation. So essentially, she wanted it to be that in the state of Iowa any women seeking an abortion has to get a ultrasound. And if a heartbeat is detected you cannot. Get an abortion, by the way, everyone needs to be watching out for this. Because as far as tricky abortions, log laws go like a gender selection abortions being illegal g you know, race elective abortions being illegal all that. Nobody does. Right. This one is on the rise. It is being introduced in state governments five to one compared to all the other ones. This is what they're going to hang their hats on. Now, I was being sued by Planned Parenthood. Over the Bill, and here's why you can detect a heartbeat. Six weeks into being pregnant a time. When most women are saying, we're the fuck is my period. Right. It would it would ban basically ban entirely. There's also this weird wiggle room. That anti-choice groups are used when they defend these laws. Here's something. I don't even know try to riper mind around this. So defending the state of Iowa in this case of Planned Parenthood versus Iowa is the Thomas more society have you ever heard of them? No, they are at evangelical anti-choice legal action group who is arguing on behalf of the state. Have you ever heard of this?.

"Whistle. Christopher Matthias is national. No reporter with huffpost. Christopher thanks for joining us. Thank you. So king has been saying things like this since he was elected in two thousand and two probably even prior to that. Why do we care now while the Pearl clutching, suddenly that's a good question? I mean, I think it basically took Steve king openly admitting to being a white supremacist New York Times to make this into a story. It's really interesting because Steve king said essentially the same thing as he said to the times to in Iowa TV. Host back in October where he said that he didn't think the term white nationalist was a derogatory term, and it's a little unclear why it's gaining so much momentum. Now, it might just be because it was in the times. But that said, you know, his white nationalism has been on full display for years. And also the Republican party is sort of turning a blind eye to not just his white nationalism. But as we've seen over the past two years in particular, a lot of really uncomfortable, white, nationalist rhetoric, and and and behavior some prominent Republicans as we set our spooky are speaking out about these comments is it too late. I mean, does it really matter if we hear this from the Republican party at this point? I mean, I wouldn't give the Republicans too much credit for what they're doing right now. For example. I mean, you know, I've been asking Republicans for the last year what their stances, and they've you know, been completely silent. Ted Cruz we. We saw yesterday condemn Steve king. But then when he was asked whether he would support king in the future. He kind of changed the subject Kim Reynolds. The governor of Iowa king served as the co chair of her campaign and was standing side by side with king the night before the election. It was only after the election that she chose to condemn him. Senator Joni Ernst from Iowa also was a big king supporter and was only, you know, only tweeted a condemnation of him this week. And let's be clear tweeting condemnations is not any really doing anything. You know, I think people think when you know, thoughts and prayers and all that and a lot of empty rhetoric. Exactly. And we've been through this new cycle before. Right where king has done. Something completely.
