"Really serious things happening in the country at the national level that I think we do need to know about and we need to be informed about. So I think if people can use the tools in this book to learn how to use grace as their buffer and do a sort of experiment of so I'm going to what's the best way I can consume the news? Where can I go to the news where I don't feel like I'm reading somebody like the Arthur books calls rhetorical dope peddlers basically people who are just trying to get you jacked up on outrage and hatred. You know, where can I go just to read a story about what's going on? And I know what's going on. When you watch TV news, see at what point you start to feel a little activated when you are consuming news, you should fill in the form. You shouldn't feel activated to hate half the country, right? That's not the point of it. And so initially, I had to go cold turkey. And I just consumed what I needed to consume for work. And now I can consume a little bit more. Now I can go on social media a little bit more because my boundaries are so strong. That I just don't, when I see something, I don't take the bait. I'm like, I'm not going to judge you. I'm not going to demonize you. I'm just moving on. I'm just in a note of this. This is not for me. I love it as an 8. You are paying attention to what you're feeling while you're watching the news. I love it. Yeah. Yeah, I mean, and I think really becoming integrated. And for me, I had to and I think a lot of people need to do this. I had to integrate my trauma. I had to deal with my trauma. And when I was able to do that, and for me, it was mostly done at onsite. And but I did also work with the trauma informed therapist who spent a lot of time with me and you will appreciate this knowing about aids on trying to help me understand what non judgment was because I had a very hard time with it. And so when I was when I was able to do that and I wasn't I didn't need to judge people and demonize them to feel safe because that's what I was doing. And I said, then I was able to have more capacity to just look at another person and say, I see what you're doing. I actually believe you're doing the best you can with what you have. Even if I don't think it's that great. And I'm not going to look at you as just the thing you're doing or the thing you're saying, I'm going to see you and all of your humanity. But I'm also going to be realistically that I don't have the capacity to be taking on everybody's stuff, right? And I think what you said about the local news is important because we're not really designed to bear the burdens of the entire world. Not that long ago, when I was growing up, you basically knew what was going on in your town. You know, I mean, maybe you knew what was going on in a couple of towns over. And you had a general idea of what was going on in the world, but really what was consuming you was just what was happening in your community. And that's what you were you were bearing. Now we're bearing just nonstop. You know, just horrible news. And on our systems can't handle it. And then I have the chapter called what goes in must come out. It's going to come out somehow. It's either going to turn into a migraine or neck pain or you screaming at somebody. Exactly. But there's no way you're going to take in all that information and have grace for people. It is not going to happen. No, I love this. I know it's so good. I'm loving this. Yeah. This is going to be a two parter. Anyway. Because it's really speaking to me and is speaking to how do I achieve spiritual growth? How do I embody the best expression of who I am of the person I want to be? And that's so good. Yes. Well, because you really hit on something, that was one of my turning points because, you know, I was trying to think exactly, you know, when I first started shifting was I was 49 and I was looking at turning 50 and I discovered Richard rohr and I was reading falling upward. And I did have started to have this. Who do I want to be? I'm a grown-up. I am supposed to be at this point in my life actually becoming kind of an elder, right? Even though in our society, you know, everybody's trying to hang on to youth for as long as possible. And so when I hit that wall, which for me was really in 2018, that was one of the questions I asked myself. Who do I want to be? I'm a grown up and I need to act like a grown-up. And I'm sorry, grown-ups don't go on Twitter and start being snarky and putting people down and dragging people and doing all these other things. This is Arrested Development. And I need to contend with that. And I need to contend with the fact that I live in a culture that doesn't really have a problem with this. So listen up everybody, we are talking with my friend enneagram 8 kyrsten powers who has been on a remarkable journey, moving from what I'm hearing an unhealthy ate on autopilot, raging, arguing, debating, demonizing, vilifying all the things that an unhealthy ape might do based in now she's learned that so much that this was rooted in trauma that she leveraged that trauma to create a very successful career in television news and media. And now has migrated toward this sort of, I think, sort of high end of two, right? Embodying attunement to other people's feelings, warmth, generosity, graciousness, while not compromising on her firmly held beliefs, but perhaps expressing them in a more I love the word ironic reconciliatory kind of from a reconciliatory posture, you mentioned onsite, I want to just say I've been to onsite workshops and Cumberland furnace Tennessee, free ad miles adcox. There it is. You can pay me later. It's a wonderful, wonderful place to work on yourself. And I want you now as an eno Grammy to walk us through the tools of how to become less enraged now more gracious people in the world. Okay. Well, I think that I'm trying to go back to the first thing I did. The first thing that I did was, first of all, you have to just want to do it. Right. Because a lot of people don't really want to do it. And you need to understand what racism, what grace is lunch. And I spent a lot of time in the book talking about that. A lot of us have the idea that grace means rolling over being a doormat or letting people get away with things. They're not holding people accountable. None of those things are accurate. Grace is just unmerited favor. It just means you look at another person. And if you're a believer, you see them as a child of God. You see the divine spark in them. If you're not a believer, you just see the humanity in them. And you see them as more than the thing about them that's upsetting you or that they've done that is harmful. And so if you can understand it that way, then I think that that will help you. And I think the tools for practicing grace are the biggest one is boundaries. That was what was, I think, so life-changing to me. And I can be boundaries in your relationships, and that can be boundaries like what we were just talking about about what you let into your mind and your body. What do you expose yourself to? How much time do you spend on social media if at all what kind of news you consume? Those kinds of things. And then you have the boundaries with the people in your life where you might have somebody who believes things that you think are harmful and they're constantly talking to you about it. And you can decide whether you have the capacity to have that conversation if you don't, then you have to let them know. You have to use boundaries rather than boundaries are an act of grace because it lets people know how to be in relationship with you. I used to think the boundaries were like a wall around you and basically stay out. And then when I learned like no boundaries are just showing people where the door is. So you're actually saying to your family member, I love you and I want to be in a relationship with you. And I'm telling you how to be in a relationship with me. And how you can be a relationship with me is to not say these kinds of things to me because we don't agree on this. And you're not going to change my mind and I'm not going to change your mind. So can we find some other things to talk about? Now, I do say there are some things that I think and this is very much maybe this is my Instagram 8 coming out. But there are some things like I said when it comes to injustice when it comes to inequality when it comes to these kinds of things when you hear people saying these things that are that need to be dealt with, you have to ask yourself, am I avoiding this conversation because it's unsafe because that's what a lot of people say. Well, it's done safe. I can't have this conversation. It's going to be too upsetting, or is it uncomfortable? And if it's uncomfortable, then I'm going to say you're going to have to have an uncomfortable conversation. And so your next tool is learn how to have healthy conflict. And I have a whole chapter on it, that they're actually is a way to have hard conversations where people have a lot of big feelings that are in a healthy way where both sides can walk away, saying, even if I didn't change my mind, that was worthwhile. I was seeing I was heard. I was able to express my feelings and then I get into a lot of the social science that they've found around if you actually do want to change the person's mind. There are ways to do it, and it's not calling them names and yelling at them. And demonizing them. And so really to learn those tools, learned, learn about brain science, learn about how people's brains and your brains are pull them towards confirmation bias and binary sorting and all of these things that make finding common ground very difficult. And when you do that, you'll be less likely to judge another person, right? Because you're going to say, I get that. I do that. I can see what's going on here. This person's our brains are always trying to keep us safe. Develop humility, how whole chapter on developing humility, where if you can see the things that you have done, like get real about the fact that you have not always done it the right way you have not always believed the right things. And when you do that, then it's easier when you see someone else doing something. That's how it is for me now because I took the time to do that. I can look at somebody and go. Yeah, I know how that is. I know how it is to say something that you look back and think I shouldn't have said that. I know how it is to believe something that I don't believe anymore. You know, you're able to have empathy for people versus judging them. I love this too because you're an 8 and in your book you talk about a healthy peacemaker. So that's like moving to that 9 wing too, right? Yeah, absolutely. It's so powerful. Yeah, well, so actually I make the distinction between peacekeeping and peacemaking because a peacekeeper is someone who doesn't want. They don't want to deal with anything. They're like, I want to go watch Netflix. I don't want to deal with my grandma who's saying racist things, right? And a piece maker is somebody who is willing to enter into conflict for the purposes of creating peace and wholeness. And so and so I think that's why Jesus said blessed are the piece makers. It implies conflict. If two countries are in conflict or even at war and peace is going to be made, there's going to be conflict and there's going to be things that people disagree on, but the ultimate goal is wholeness and peace. And so I think sometimes when we think of peace, we think of it as meaning there's no there's no conflict, right? And I think there are also some people and you can speak to this much better than I can. But there are a lot of people who try to pass off their unwillingness to confront anything as great. And so, you know, where they'll say, you know, well, I'm just, I'm so graceful. I just let everything go. It's like, well, actually, I think you just don't ever want to have any conflict. Like in any gram 9 might be somebody that would do that. Yes. And I want to just say, right here, I'm going to throw my pencil up in the air and just say Kirsten that you have completely changed or you have said something that I am going to use in every single talk I give on the enneagram going forward. Oh my gosh, what is it? I'm going to be doing it when I do my module on 9s and I'm going to say, look, the journey for you is from peace maker. No. Peace keep to peacemaker to a real peacemaker. And then to define the difference. Because that is a wonderful distinction that you just made. The willingness to understand that to arrive at genuine peace will necessarily involve conflict of some kind. That is worth the whole price of admission. Yeah. I mean, hey everybody, one of the lessons I've learned over the years is that not everybody benefits from a traditional 50 minute counseling session. And this is why some people can go to couples therapy or personal counseling for a long time and never really get anywhere.

Whether or not Jesse what's his name created a hate crime or committed a hate crime can't say learn to code God forbid, you say learn to code lose like you can say all of these things. Now, there were two to reporters that I think show promise that show that maybe maybe slightly a few things are starting to change and one I mentioned one I mentioned earlier and that is Kirsten powers now. She is she's there reporter who she was on FOX. It was annoying. Well, she. Yeah. She's the democrat that was on FOX and those debates, right? And so it was just like, okay. But there are a lot of Republicans are that way as well. On on television. But she just tweeted that she is spent time away from social media. And now she is examined her role on what she's done to divide the country. And she said, I don't like the results. And I find that very very comforting an interesting from her because I would not say she was one of the worst offenders when it comes to pass on television. I think she was on the better side generally of democratic commun- commentators. But she disagreed with her, and she was one of those people you're just like frustrated with. Yeah. But she she doesn't she wasn't a flame thrower. And this is a whether she is or not. I mean, just the fact that she's at least examining election. There's also the CBS reporter now, this is Laura Lara Logan Laura Logan, if you remember Lara Logan. She was the one that was raped in Egypt. The during the during the revolution. The the spring the spread glorious Arab spring that was so wonderful, and peaceful. She was raped in that here. She is. She's a sixty minutes. Reporter I want you to listen to what she said in this in this podcast about reporters. Listen to this eighty five percent of journalists are registered Democrats. So that's just a fact right now wants registering Democrats when they really a Republican. So the facts are on the side of what you just stated most journalists are are leftover liberal or democrat or whatever word you want to give it how do, you know? You're being light to how do you know, you're being manipulated? How do you know? There's something not right with the coverage when they simplify it all and there's no gray is now great all one way. Well, life isn't like that. For example, you know. All the coverage on Trump all the time is negative. There's nothing there's there's nothing no mitigating policy or event or anything that has happened since he was elected that is out there in the media is that you can read about right? Well, that tells you that's distortion of way things go in real life because although the media is always been historically always been left leaning. We've abandoned. Pretense or at least the effort to be objective today. Unbelievable frankness, and she's absolutely right. It's what I wrote about in addicted outrage, I said, if if you talk to everything that we everything we watch on Donald Trump. It's all negative or it's all absolutely positive. That's how true McDonald's is the greatest example. There are times that you want McDonald's food. There are other times you like. It'll be all afternoon, and you can say McDonald's has bad food. But if I say to you. Yeah. Okay. I'll agree the shake and maybe a couple of things but their fries of the best. If you can't admit that. Mcdonald's fries are the best. There's something wrong with you. There is something wrong with you. This Donald Trump is McDonald's. Yeah. There's some bad things. But there's some great things to you've got to mention both.

Frank is you're you've been in the media longtime, both television and radio. Why is the media so quick to pounce on these things and not wait until investigations are complete nano social media drives a lot of this.

CNN's Kirsten powers also slamming the Covington Catholic students saying that they called the one of their classmates the N word with a hand gesture what? Yeah. Just to know what what she is partaking in. But clearly, it's not one that gives one lucid thoughts. NBC savannah, Guthrie and Nathan Phillips and all the native American older banging the drum in the face of one of those students spreading fake news about his Vietnam claims. So either NBC was in the dark didn't bother fact checking or they knew they knew he was never devoid to Vietnam. He was a marine was in the armed services who by the way, one three times it was. Criminally charged while he was in the service, but he was never deployed to Vietnam. And I heard from a number of veterans yesterday and say, you are not a Vietnam veteran unless you were in country, of course. People who believe that you could call it just because you were in the service at the time of the Vietnam war. That's they say Vietnam veteran. You know? In fact, they give you two medals for service medal and campaign medal. When you're in the country. That's that's what that's all about NBC, pending fake news about a gay valedictorians of ban, Covington speech. They were reporting that comington Catholic BanDai gave elegant Torian from giving a speech. It was fake news. And so a lot of that. And then Jim Acosta deleo your favorite doctor.

"So the latest with regard to Covington high school, apparently the president of the United States is going to invite the students from Covington high to head on over to the White House. This is probably what he should do at this point considering that the media have absolutely destroyed these kids, I mean, really spent an enormous amount of time going after the kids, basically, here's how the narrative went for a lot of folks in the media careers the progression of the story here. The progression of the story where the media said the Covington kids are racist, and they botched it because there was no evidence that then they said, okay. But other Covington kids were racist. No. That's not true either. But but Covington band a gay kid from speaking. This is their new take today. It turns out Covington did not bountygate had from speaking. It turns out a different high school in the Covington diocese stopped a gay person from speaking because he did not submit his speech in time. And it was replete with a bunch of yelling about the bible, so they too. So the media finally response by going, you know, what the real story here is that people are mean to journalists really Kirsten powers basically tweeted that out today. She was like the real stories that people are really mad at the journalists. So yeah, th that's how the media are treating this whole thing. And it is pretty incredible. The lengths to which they will go in order to defend their idiocy Ilhan, Omar really, I think at the best today. Oh, no more. Of course. One of the new fresh faces so many fresh. Basis of the Democratic Party. Mar had tweeted out this whole why about what exactly these boys were doing? She tweeted up the boys were protesting a woman's right to choose. And it's not rape.

And then should stand man's family. Nixon man the kid who's in the tape hired a right wing PR firm to write his apology. So what mean being assaulted by the media at the time.

And they've got this headline, and I get the story, right? He will put it on show prep. CNN's Kirsten powers says Covington students call classmate the inward with hand. Gesture is there a hand gesture for the inward? I I is that in sign language, can you actually use a racial slur is sign language. I wasn't aware. Then. And if so what is it? The mine reels doesn't it? Here's what they say. CNN political analyst and USA today columnist Kirsten powers bizarrely claimed on Monday. That Covington Catholic high school students referred to a black classmate is a racial slur with silent hand gestures to their harassers who were actually saying the word the alleged gesture occurred in the lead up to a confrontation between some schools students and a native American activist on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during Friday's March for life event. Initial video of the confrontation between Covington Catholic high school junior. Nick, Sandman and native American activists. Nathan Phillips created a firestorm of controversy on social media with both left and right wing media observers accusing the students of racism Sandman donning, a red make America great again baseball cap. It seems smiling as he stands in front of Phillips an elder with the Omaha tribe whose beating the drum close to his face. Some of San man's classmates were laughing and making hand gestures, and what some say were attempts to make fun of Phillips. However, additional footage paints a more complex picture of the events and other videos, shared social media. Members of the black Hebrew Israelites, which I keep asking isn't that redundant? The Blackie is like drinking liquor. The black. Hebrew, Hebrew, Israelite. I keep saying he I think it should be Hebrew, bro, and ethnic pride religious sect, which has run afoul even of the far left. Southern poverty. Law Center are seen verbally accosting. The students calling them racist bastards a little dirty ass crackers and child molesting faggots. That's the way it is also called them inbred. I think they did to the black. Hebrew that black Hebrew. I'm telling you. That's a better name. He he rose. The black. Hebrew, israelites. Also compared the students to dogs and hyenas and challenged them to a fight at one point is power notes. The harassers shouted the students y'all got one in word in the crowd. And then, of course, inviting folks have Breitbart or somewhere they misspelled you knew you folks, don't have spill y'all. Okay. It's Y. Apostrophe A L L. It's a contraction for you all is now why a contraction l l I mean apostrophe LL, which is where a lot of people spell it. But it's a contraction for you, also the you what you you put the apostrophe whether no letters see, that's my Breitbart is not a reliable side ex. Exactly. Right. They obviously not southern. No. Because they don't know how to spell y'all. I don't even know what it means. No have no idea. What's what's that mean, y'all? Anyway, is that something that's that's something to do with an aircraft. Anyway. So. Oh, really one of my friend says the Kirsten powers dated Anthony Weiner back in the day. Anyway. Pictures amaechi. She does that she does too. CNN analysts than claims one of the two students who responded to the slur held up one finger in her mind apparently referring to one black boy in the group. What? So you hold up. A wall was always the okay thing. That's now races. Right. So bunk weights erases, so that's a white supremacist. Sign is. And now holding up one finger is is racist. Because what does she say? So. Apparently, referring to the one black boy in the group to dog whistle. It must be a dog whistle Kirsten powers tweets. This also at one eighteen the harassers, yell y'all. Got one inward in the crash. She actually spelled y'all. Right. So I gotta give her kudos for that. But she's a journalist one of the boys turns around and holds up two fingers. Another holds up one finger apparently referring to the only black boy in the group. How is this shockingly little evidence of wrongdoing? Your words. What do you mean? I'm not I'm I'm not following this Kirsten so one guy holds up two fingers, which is peace one finger index finger usually means we're number one. I mean, but this is now supposed to be a racial slur in sign language because he holds up one finger that'd be holds up the middle finger. We know exactly what that means. Responding to powers accusation reason editor bobby's sauve, so the while he doesn't believe the students behave perfectly throughout the ordeal of is unfair to condemn the whole based the whole based on the actions of few students in the entire group powers in reiterates the claim that the students were describing a classmate as this particular racist slur by making a hand gesture asking so of is that what you call referencing a black classmate as inward not reacting perfectly. I'm I'm sorry. My mind's about explode. I have no idea what she's told what you can't even have a Woody. What is she talking about is any my have any idea what she's talking about? She's just trying to get to a racist conclusion. I guess so so one kid holds up two fingers. Another kid holds up one and the one who's owning of the one finger is sending a racial slur by sign language. Douglas. I've always said Kirsten. Only dogs can your dog whistles. So check yourself. And if she heard you saying he rose look out your next. That was a dog whistle, right? There. He. I love roses showed up on Friday. Charge came at several newspapers alleged widespread racism among Covington Catholic high school students past and present. As Breitbart news is Joel Pollock reported, the UK daily reported Monday evening, the school has been called out for allowing other youngsters to wear black face at pep rallies. In the last ten years, it reprinted screen shots of YouTube video since deleted, and which students from Covington Catholic school painted their faces and their bodies in black at a basketball game O M G. The Daily Mail claimed that in one photograph extensively from two thousand fifteen the students wore black face and jeered as African American player. From the school's opposites opponents stood in front of them at no point in the story of the Daily Mail. Consider the question of whether the paint actually referred to race or was a demonstration of school spirit. We'll be back right after this.

"It's a form of unhappy. Penis, but it is a form of hating western civilization. They do not go to the. I mean, you know, the kind of tenderness and delicacy with which they treat Muslims after yet another Islamic terror attack, though, they suddenly say, oh, we'll never know the motivations of the guy. The guy was screaming, I'm killing you because of Allah. We'll never know his motivations. No. It's obviously, we don't know your motivations now that I'm telling you what it is. They're so kind to those people, you know, not not to spread prejudice against the entirely just to say the way they treat them as different than the way they treat Christianity it is western civilization. They don't like why. Because they have a purpose their purposes to acquire more and more power for the government, more and more power for the elites, and that is not what western civilization as it is embodied in the American idea is all about and that is why it's always the traditional things that they are trying to destroy my my point is it's the same thing that you let commercials the Gillette commercial attacking men, they're selling raisers. And they're telling you men's stink by our reserve. You're a bully. You're old. You're a sexist. You just you are absolutely disgusting bio razors, we love you, you know. And that's that's what they're saying. And I love Kirsten powers comes on. I don't know. What's happened there? She's gonna loony she used to be a little bit more balanced. Maybe it's Trump is driven a grazing. But suddenly, she's far leftist. She goes on CNN. And she says I cannot understand. I cannot understand why anybody would be upset by this commercial. Let's fragile and their and their privileged again to go back to this that they expect to not be criticized that any kind of criticize criticizing of them crosses the line. It's an assault on them. It's an attack. They don't want to be held accountable. So I think that if you're somebody who's having sort of triggering reaction to this. You might wanna take a look at yourself and ask why that is because what is it about trading women with respect to quality that so offensive to you. And what is it about sending different kinds of messages? Two little boys that they don't have to be fine. Fighting and acting in what this sort of it is toxic masculinity. That's not actual masculinity. That's not what masculinity is. And so I would just say if you're upset about this maybe ask yourself. Why? Thanks to Kirsten powers for explain to me what masculinity is. But you know, it's like, nobody says men can't be criticized and men criticize men all the time, and they criticize men's behavior other men's behavior all the time. And of course, men who act like jerks and pigs come on get a lot of flack from other men as as well, they should, but you're telling us razors, essentially, making the point that white that that well, it did say white man, it did make it look like it was only white men, but essentially making the point that men themselves masculinity itself is toxic that the aggression that sometimes overflows in masculinity is a bad thing that the sexuality that has caused the world to continue to reproduces a bad thing. It's it is offensive demonizing, and they can take their razors and stick them. But at the same time, the traditional roles of women trigger these people. This is amazing. You know, Trump had this thing that Clemson football team that won the championship came over. And he said, well, the government is closed. So I can't we don't have shafts soy. Center for big Macs. Trump said he was going to pile up the big Macs for a mile high and the Washington Post seriously, really twelve hundred word fact, check proving with graphs that big Macs with not pile up a mile high. If he ordered two feet the football team. But anyway, as he was presenting these big Macs to the football players. He mentioned that he thought this would be better than having the first lady make them a salad..

"New book is last call for liberty. How America's genius for freedom has become its greatest threat. Let me ask you a question. We're both professing Christians my. Biggest. Grief over the divide in America at this point has to do with the church the moment. I thought it wise to say voting for Trump is better than voting for Hillary Clinton. I was vilified and since have been vilified, as, you know, everything under the sun, even my fellow Christians, or I should say, especially many of my fellow Christians have said things, I would have thought them incapable ever of saying we have. Figures in public life, like my friend Kirsten powers saying that anyone who voted for Trump is in fact, a racist. You have many people who are professing evangelical Christians, serious, Catholic Christians who are as anti Trump as Alexandra. Oh, Cossio Cortez that to me is the darkest part of this. Because I would think that the church would understand that that the unborn in a number of other things are vitally important. Something has changed. No, you're absolutely right. And I think part of it though, they have the situation. Right. They notice once again, they become obsessed with Trump and they failed to see that. He's not the cause is the consequence the symptom. And while that being obsessed with him, the real problems of developing underneath and won't be forever. He says out two full terms, and is in whatever way, then you would still have the problem, and these friends describing a whole lot Paul names because they offer ends down here in DC. And go to churches down the road from me. I think that dead wrong. They haven't analyzed the situation, right? Well, I'm sure that they haven't. But the problem is not only haven't they analyzed it. Right. But they are demonizing any who disagree with them. That to me is the divide that's horrifying this one thing to differ. It's another thing too. I mean since I'm mentioning our friend Kirstin Perez. She's a public figure, so she it's one thing for me to think of her as somebody who is a really a friend of the Democratic Party. She has different views than I do. But I know she's pro-life and so on and so forth. But when people like that with whom I had been friends begin to say, those who disagree with them are racists, you realize you can't have a conversation at that point. And I think that's where we are. You have people like David Brooks in the New York Times, you feel like, you know, it's people who are they're worried about what people think of them. At least that's part of how I understand it that they think that everyone who. Is a sane person must be viciously against Trump. If you're not that then you're not part of the crowd anymore. And so you can't even talk to those people. So I feel like it's very lonely. Nonetheless, most of America voted for this, man. He he didn't squeak in through a side door. He was elected. And I so I really am worried. I would I would guess that most Christians across America, most Christians, would would would be very surprised to think that you would have advocated voting for Donald Trump is gonna season to actual. He would never do that. We didn't think Eric Metaxas would do that. But of course, he's turned out to be a jug head, but Oz Guinness and anyone else of a of a certain. Brainpower? They they would never do that. Another. Another words anybody who is for Trump in the shadows effectively silenced? No, no. I can't vote. I'm an Englishman. Well, no. Many of these people and even the ones you've mentioned, the either close friends, they go to churches, who's pastas and my friends under them. Well. But I think they started with a wrong analysis, and I stop that charges like you're racist. Look Trump that is just wrong and very evil and its simplifications. And I'm sure if I sat down with twenty minutes, I could show she'd take that back. That's disgraceful sort of talk. And we've got to encourage people. Hello.

"You can challenge anybody and say to them, how do you spell Clayton? It is K L A V A N. So all these things it is all these things that racism is not it is not an occasional insensitive or stupid remark. We all make mistakes. It's none of these things. But this is the problem with the this approach to racism, they think they've got us on the rope. As one of the worst things you can call an American to call him a racist. It can destroy your career and destroy your reputation. And so they use it all the time. Here's an example, here's Kirsten gillibrand, basically. Tarring the entire Republican party. And especially Trump with Steve king's remarks Trump was asked about king's remarks, and he shrugged it off. He said my following the story and here's Kirsten gillibrand on CNN. Here's Kristen power sorry Kirsten, all those Kirsten's look alike to me is Kirsten powers reacting to that whenever he's given an opportunity to condemn racism, he chooses not to you know, or he does the both sides find people on both sides or he during the campaign when all right was, you know, saying all sorts of things and being Hugh supporter of his and he just declined to condemn them, and he doesn't condemn them because I think one of the questions that we should all be asking when we're talking about. Steve king is really what's the difference between him and Donald Trump. There's not that much difference. I think that Steve king has been like this for a long time. You could ask the Republican party. Why they're now deciding that he's a problem have they evolved or are they? Under pressure because he's been talking about, you know, undocumented immigrants like their animals. He talked about putting electrified fence on the border saying that this is how we control livestock, so comparing them to livestock, so you know, this is a much bigger problem for the Republican party. Then just a few comments. See this is what they always do the times does this too. By the way, there are shelling. Steve king as the prototype for Trump's border comments. Trump's make saying the same thing about the border for as long as I can remember. So as nothing new about it. I'm sure you didn't get it from Steve king. I'm sure it's his own opinion. And it's a problem. We have a problem at the border. Everybody knows it people are flooding in. They can float in the Democrats want nothing to even the stuff that this ingesting would not keep people out. I don't know if a wal would help. But it's sure seems albatross seemed to help in Israel source seems to help outside Nancy Pelosi is huge Napa Valley the state. So I mean walls tend to work, but that's not the point..

"It's not. It's not it's not that. I I don't think anybody who's convinced that the president did this on behalf of Russia. You know prior Komi, but you know, but if but. But you know, they had but the act with the active Meiring, but the simple act of firing Komi, you know, gone you make or toll congress at that was considered a Finnish. Is it clear? Whether the counterintelligence investigation was ever wrapped up. I I don't know if that's the case today, we say that in the story. I'm sure it's something baller. You know, if he writes her forty it's like, that's something. He could explain or Adam golden if you will please stick around with us. I want to also bring in CNN chief political correspondent Dana bash in USA today. Call him as Kirsten powers is with us as well. And on the phone FBI supervisory special agent Josh Campbell who served as a special assistant to director Komi Danna. I to you on this in this gets to the article references point there are many within the intelligence community, and certainly within the president's orbit who say that this and other things represent serious overreach by the FBI, potentially. Obviously would love to hear joshes versus that's t was not only working for the FBI, but working for James, call me, look at I think what is what is really an unknown here. What let you take a state best. Back. This is very explosive, and it's obvious. Why the FBI didn't want anybody to know about this at all the notion as you were getting with atom of investigating president of the United States to see if the American president is working for the Russians is just it just it's almost too much to wrap your mind around having said that we don't know what happened, and we don't know how quickly it wrapped up if it's wrapped up, and obviously it's it's it's connected to the much larger Robert Mueller investigation. This is before. Yes, it seems as though the FBI started. This before Robert Mueller was appointed by rod Rosenstein Muller took it over in merge to an extent, we believe the intelligence and the criminal investigation Josh Campbell. You were there at the time. First of all explain to us or verify what you can about this reporting. Yeah. So so John have to be obviously, very careful with information that I talk about that. I knew when I was in the FBI, and as you mentioned working for director Komi, you know, after he was fired. I continued on in my role as a special system to the director. So again, I mentioned that just say that any employee takes note that he won't divorce certain things, but I will say those we can speak kinda hypothetically about the mechanics and the impact of such an investigation..

"And so what you saw earlier today. Anderson as the president hyping this case for wall on the border, just as he has been spreading other misleading statements, for example, as you were saying earlier, and he said this time, and again when he was down here in the border area talking with law enforcement officials. He said why never said that we would write a check to Mexico when of course, his campaign put out statements, saying Mexico can end this once and for all make a one time payment of five to ten billion dollars to the United States government. And so yes, the president did try to make this case down here hearted as it might have been but also many points throughout the day Anderson making a lot of misleading statements because he knows he's he's kind of running out of time and making this case to the American people that he he should have this wall on the border Anderson, Jim Mukasa, Jim thanks wanted to dig deeper now with USA today columnist Kirsten powers for Trump campaign. Aides Steve Cortez and CNN senior political analyst David Gergen who's advised democratic and Republican presidents dating back to the. The Nixon administration. Steve I mean, the president today saying, I never said Mexico would, you know, write a check for five billion dollars, or whatever it his website actually did say that he repeatedly said Mexico will pay for it. And they specifically pointed out that it could be a one time payment. Right. Well, look, I think Mexico still will pay for it. I I think that that's why does the president lies about it today saying he never said that when he does he did you'd have to you'd have to ask him. But I think that the most sensible way to get them to pay for to tax remittances, I think that's very doesn't concern you that the president just lies like water flowing down a river. Well, no, I think you need to be careful you say lives for so when he said Mexico's gonna write a check I think that was high personally, clearly an applause line at rallies. Well, actually wasn't actually a line on a website that nobody was applauding. But that's not right. But that's not from here. I think look I don't think any serious. I don't think any serious person believed that Mexico is going to have this gigantic check with wall in the memo. Wall up front. You don't think thousands of people who heard him say and who themselves chanson Mexico's gonna pay for it. And who read that website in which he says that it'll be a one time payment, you think that people just don't think that he's making. I think I think that Americans whether they're border patrol agents. Whether there are people all across America care about our sovereignty. I think that they want first of all border security. Secondly, it does make sense for Mexico to pay. I think it's fair and just that they pay whether they pay up front over time to me doesn't make very much difference. I mean to you does it seem the president has just just lied about this and today lied about lying about it. Yeah. I mean, I just don't understand Steve, Steve, you're basically saying that you know, we shouldn't expect that what he said would happen would happen. He said this over and over. I mean you've seen the montage. You've you've seen the website. So I guess if that doesn't bother you. I think it was pretty clear that. He was saying that Mexico would pay for it. And the reason he was saying that is because it's really really expensive. And he if he wasn't saying that he would have to say, you know, I'm gonna I'm going to spend, you know, tens of billions of dollars of your money Americans building this wall. And that's not what people wanted to hear. Because it's not something that that a we in need, it's a manufactured crisis. It's there is there is no crisis. No matter how many times they say it out the border. This has been debunked over and over. It's not gonna stop any terrorists from coming in. It's not going to stop the drugs that he claims her coming through there because they're not coming through that way..
Trump Claims Hurricane Maria Response Was “One of Best Jobs That’s Ever Been Done”
"As another massive hurricane millions of Americans in its path. We've been talking about how the president today called the hurricane response in Puerto Rico. One of the best jobs that's ever been done. The job that FEMA and law enforcement and everybody did working along with the governor in Puerto Rico, I think was tremendous. I think the Puerto Rico was incredible. Unsung success really three thousand people. We now know died in hurricane, Maria, and its aftermath numbers. The government only recently aknowledge just by earlier studies that showed thousands had died for more than the official death toll of sixty four back now with max boot. Kirsten powers and Rick Santorum Cureton Senator Santorum had said to comment you made right before the break that comparing, you know, a hurricane in Houston or in Texas to Puerto Rico. It's it's it's difficult to compare given the difficulties of dealing with a an island that had the problems that Puerto Rico had previously, but just the logistics of getting supplies to an island. Yes, they're very different but that. So you can maybe see the outcome would be different because maybe a big effort could be made the same. Effort that you would make for Texas, you would try to make for Puerto Rico, and your outcome might be different because you're dealing with the different situation, but the effort wasn't made. That's the point it wasn't. We're not saying that you know that everything should have gone perfectly. I think what people are trying to say is that there could have been a lot more attention paid to it and could have mitigated a lot of the suffering and a lot of the death that they experienced there, and I and I think the fact of the president continues to talk about this in a way that's just dishonest describing something as a success. That clearly was not a success at a minimum. Just to me shows that it's just not something that he really cares about. Remember, President Bush was pilloried for his response to Katrina. When he said, for example, to the FEMA director, heck of a job brownie, he was seen as being out of touch because eighteen hundred people died and Hurricane Katrina. Well, nearly three thousand people died in hurricane,
