Capitol Hill violence again raises the question of social media responsibility

"The story of the us capital wednesday was a dark day. Us history once again. Ask the question. How much responsibility rests on social media companies that have allowed figures like president trump the foment enough rage to enable such an act. This is your daily charge me to discuss this is our social media reported queenie wall. Welcome queasy thank you for having me. It's been quite the crazy exhausting week. Yes i really actually want to get you on earlier by new. You're so busy to the store. I didn't want to bother you. I'm glad you're able to come on today. so let's let's talk about it. Facebook and twitter have to their credit. They been more proactive of the last several weeks really since the election in flagging trump social activity but wednesday's violence seem to be a real turning point. Run through some of the steps. They've taken to to your outright block trump in some cases so i think it was interesting because you saw content. Moderation happen in real time and initially. Facebook twitter did with a usually did with trump's posting tweets which was a label to them which you know experts have said in the past. They felt was not very adequate on to his claims of voter fraud. And then you saw twitter limit. The reach of his tweets Like stopping people from re tweeting his tweets and them and then eventually saw the company's remove the posts and that was you know as violence continued to break out on capitol hill. They took the even stronger step of locking trump's accounts which prevented him from tweeting or posting on facebook. Facebook said the lock was indefinite and twitter. Said that he had to delete three violating tweets. After that there there would be like a twelve hour lock period and once that ended he Again so how. Unprecedented is this. The you know. The fact that facebook said trump's account would definitely be locked down for the next two weeks but also really called indefinite which suggests there isn't an end date cow. How a precedent. How big of a deal is this. It's a really rare step by the social media companies because in the past especially with facebook the company has had a mostly hands on hands off approach to political speech. They exempted politicians from fact checking and their rationale has been political speeches already heavily scrutinized and the public should have the right to see what the president is saying and twitter has taken a much tougher stance but they have something called a public interest. Notice where they will limit the sharing of the tweet and say that it violated its rules. But you could still see the tweet if you click through the notice. But this time. Both of the company's locked trump's accounts and pulled down his tweets because they said you know the risks of islands with much greater than public interests these steps as you note there big deal ends a big change of practice but is it too little too late for these companies and many sense. Yeah it was because the violence had already broken out. They were given a lot of warning signs before and they didn't take stronger. Action until after violence had broken out and so the companies got criticism from politicians including former first lady. Michelle obama on civil rights activists journalists saying they should either take stronger action or that. This was really something that they should have done a lot. Sooner because at this point damage has been done right. So let's talk about the role that social media's played in radicalizing people how all this online content motivate people enough to actually travel all the way to dc and stormed the capitol building so trump himself and his supporters were promoting this rally online. Like it was no surprise that there was going to be a big rally on january the sex and he's been pushing these baseless claims of election. Fraud sense you know. Joe biden was declared the winner of the next of the presidential election. So he's been sort of riling up his supporters By seeing the election has been stolen and even before the violence broke out there were already stories and researchers pointed out that there were calls for violence on various social media platforms and some of it was in social media sites where there's a large conservative base marvin echo chamber. So it's just a lot of anger being filled. Fueled by a lot more anger on social

Donald Trump is finished, but will 'Trumpism' prevail?

Donald Trump is finished, but will 'Trumpism' prevail?

"It's been more than a week since the us presidential election joe biden of course has claimed victory whereas the president is yet to concede defeat but when donald trump eventually leaves office the question. We have to ask ourselves is is trumpism. Really finished after all the media conventional wisdom the new york times washington. Post the major networks. Cnn msnbc all that conventional wisdom is that the twenty twenty election represents a repudiation of trumpism and what's trump luckily to do after he leaves office well for more. Let's turn to patrick. J buchanan senior adviser to president reagan nixon and ronald reagan. Pat has been a regular fixture in america's opinion pages and cable television shows for generations. Ninety ninety two and ninety six pat buchanan ran for the presidential nomination of his party. The republican party on america first platform pass walking back to you between the lines. Good to your tom now. Let's start with the election itself to spotted trifecta of crises health economic racial the us congressional and presidential contests were very tight. How do you account for that. I think there were tight for this reason. The covid virus which hammered us in march and april and then all during the summer and full took the lodge. That's two hundred and thirty thousand americans and they induced an economic decline unrivalled since the great depression. And then you have to racial turmoil in the country. And the wake of the killing of george floyd in minneapolis riots. And and things like that. So he's really damaged trump in the eyes of the public and his administration and normally they would've killed any presidential candidate. But i will say that in the fall. When trump was further behind he basically one mechanic team won the battle against biden. It was surging at the end of the campaign but he did not get over the top or at least so far so i think what you can say is trump and trumpism won the campaign. They lost the election because of the burdens. They had to terry which were too happy to cross the finish line. And let's not forget that in the late up to the election the metric conventional wisdom the polls the pundits. They predicted a democratic sweep. A blue wave washing the republicans out of power capturing the senate and delivering an alleged democratic congressional majority if the democrats did indeed have a clean sweep of the congress and the white house what would radical progressive in the american takes. What would that have made if you had nancy. Pelosi in control of the house and chuck schumer and control. The should i which looks less and less likely now and preston biden into white house. Biden's problem would be the tremendous pressure from the progressive left wing of this party to impose his leftist agenda. The party home to the country in the first two years of his administration. And i think it would be virtually impossible biden to resist the democrats cheap to kill the filibuster. Which would eliminate the ability of the republicans to stop their agenda and we would be off to the races with medicare for all the green new deal statehood for puerto rico statehood for dc. Defunding the cops. Pack the supreme court the whole left wing democratic agenda. They would try to ram through with fifty one votes. In the senate and biden frankly would be restraining force because republicans wouldn't be able to do it if they lost the filibuster in the senate which is what. Barack obama urged the democrats to take away if they win the senate okay now bought and has pasta to sydney electoral college. Votes needed to win the white house now given that it's very hard to prove widespread electoral fraud pat. Why want trump just accept defeat. Here's trump is demanding that he be allowed to play out last play of the deal. Because i think he feels he has been treated horribly by the democrats and the liberals in the press and he's not gonna do them a favour. He's got a right to make sure. The counselor made and certain things happen by certain dates. He's not going to speed up the transition. It's not gonna be a pleasant transition at all. He's going to treat them the way they felt. They treated him when he came in with the russia investigation and all the rest of it. So i think what you're getting is. Trump is looking at upon this if it succeeds is a hostile takeover of the government of the united states. And he is acting to resisted with every legal constitutional weapon. He has so it's This is not a cordial country power at all. Okay but with dany. Before the nineteen sixty presidential election between richard nixon and john f kennedy. That was very taught. There was a lot of speculation about electoral fraud in texas and illinois. And that of course benefited. The democrats won that election now. Apologies for the very scratchy. Sound quality of these vintage news report from sixty years ago. but he's nixon. Your boss pat here. He is at four. Am at republican headquarters. After the election conceding. Defeat to and and results shows come in if the present trend continues If mr kennedy and senator kennedy will be the next president of the united states senators kennedy now. And i want you know that. Certainly this trend has continued and he does become our next president that he will have my. That's richard nixon conceding. Defeat john f. kennedy in nineteen sixty pat buchanan. Why can't trump do a nixon accept defeat graciously that at four am gathering. My wife was present. She worked for richard nixon and the nineteen sixty campaign and travel. The country would and the point is that was a different time in a different country. That america's today america's bitterly divided and one of the contributing factors is the is the belief correct in my view that donald trump was denied. Not only a good transition but donald trump was investigated by the fbi and during the transition. They went after his state of the fbi did and they had a two year investigation beach. Kim they try to defeat him then they tried to overthrow him. And i think trump feels this and he says i established nothing. They can go. I mean they can go too far as i'm concerned and we're going to run this old way out and make sure every ballot is counted and all the towns are accurate. And whether or not we're going to go to court and exercise our rights and we're not going to pretend otherwise that this is a pleasant for easy transfer of power this was a hostile takeover and trump's view. I mean they're campaign run against him former first lady. Michelle obama is already talking about the house and he could and racism and the rest endemic pain in what he come folks voted for. So i think look you gotta divided country and there's no sense pretending otherwise and trump is not gonna gauge any pretense.

The Refugee Crisis: We Have To Do More

"Chris. Thank you so much. For coming onto this podcast. Thank you for having me. I'm so excited to learn about your work Get your perspective on some of the current issues in this country right so i feel like if we talked about the shoes. The issues will disappear somehow. And we'll also talk about your upbringing. What sort of forces you think got you where you are right now so it. It's a it's a laundry list. We'll see if we can get through at least the important bots so i will start with what did do before you were the ceo and president of russian immigrant and refugee services. And what led you to your current role. Yes so. I served in the obama administration for five years. I was a senior adviser at the state department for three and then at the white house Servings policy director to first lady. Michelle obama for two After i came out of the white house. I actually thought that i was finally going to get a little bit of a break Moment catch my breath. But i actually ran for governor of maryland in two thousand eighteen election. Okay so let's talk about your role as policy director for first lady michelle obama. What did any initiatives that. You're most proud off during your tenure there. yeah Let girls learn was the first lady and president obama's joined international initiative it was the only international initiative that michelle launch while in the white house and i was especially proud of that program because it was very personal to me. My mother came to the us as a teacher ambassador She had me when she was forty. Two she got her phd when she z. To and so girls and women's education Had always been an issue that You know my mother cared about the chain grain. Did me as her daughter The opportunity to work on global girls education around the world but also here at home in the us. was an opportunity of a lifetime Sad to think that still today we have sixty two million girls who are not getting an education in terms of a secondary education and that is due to barriers ranging from cultural ones to menstruation to economic factors and so that opportunity to launch on the initiative. Which is actually The one shift. She really is singularly focused on now in her post white house. Life i think reflects the importance of it And its legacy krishnan talk about good education. At least i think of education for goods in developing nations right. i grew up in pakistan. So that's the first thing that comes to my mind but what does lack of education or lack of access to education look like in america and what are some of the challenges that people face in the us and don't talk about as much. Yeah i mean. I think some of the communities that we spoke to. Who were you know. Domestic americans were sometimes shocked to think about how this is an issue that was at home We have thousands of girls who drop out of school. Some of them return some of them. Don't a many of the reasons we see here in the us or related to who Economics a child who i started working after school and just to help the family A single parent be able to pay rent every month. Turns out that you know. Maybe the mother ends up losing her job and so the girl has to take on a full time job You know in some cases You know this is rarer but we do still have some cases of where girls education is not valued as much as the voice and so you know. The child will initially be homeschooled You know you still have parents who are fearful of sending their girls to school But that ends up. Meaning that the standard of homeschool is not adequate. And so if we actually were to apply tests You know that are a kind of a national standard. We couldn't say that. They actually completed their secondary education. And it's sad to think that arguably the us's the leader of the free world and yet we are still not able to educate oliver girls. This is so interesting and you bring up disparity between girls and boys education which to me is a total surprise when it comes to the us. Again i think of histon right. That's my reference point. And i do understand their cultural reasons for why people in pakistan specially boo hoo economically challenged would probably prefer boys to have education because of limited resources right. But i'd never thought this was happening in the us as well. Why don't we talk about it as much. Yeah i mean you know. There are some great groups that are exclusively focused domestically like a girls inc. Their focus is particularly city centers. Because that is where we see it more but honestly you can also see it in rural areas as well but the truth is here in the us. We feel as though you know. We've solved our education issues. Even the disparity in our educational systems that applied to both girls and boys that is driven largely by how we fund school. It's driven by property taxes right and you don't wanna talk about the fact that we have stepped away from this idea of education as a civic good

Takeaways from the Democratic National Convention

"One of presidential nominee gives a convention speech. The rial audience is not the crowd, but the audience at home. Last night, Democratic nominee Joe Biden had no crowd, so he looked at the camera and gave what felt like an intimate talk. Here and now I give you my word. If you entrust me with the presidency, I will draw on the best of us, not the worst. I'll be an ally of the light, not the darkness. After the speech, Biden and his wife, Jill, walked outside to a fireworks display with convention attendees gathered in a socially distance way outside their cars in the parking lot, honking their horns and cheering. The first ever virtual Democratic National Convention opened with first lady Michelle Obama delivering a dark warning. If you think things cannot possibly get worse, trust me they can, and they will if we don't make a change in this election. Also during this convention, Joe Biden's wife, Dr Jill Biden, shared of personal endorsement. If we and trust this nation to Joe He will do for your family what he did for ours. Bring us together and make us whole. Kamala Harris made history as the first black and Asian American woman to be the vice presidential nominee on a major party ticket. Let's fight with confidence in ourselves and a commitment to each other. To the America we know is possible. The America we love.

All of us important team separate going crazy. We'd have to return all stars from Princeton. New Jersey is Dr Eddie Claude Junior James. S Mcdonnell Distinguished University professor at Princeton University Hey Eddie welcome back rose more pleasure. excited. We are so happy to have you so happy and joining us from Boston Massachusetts County. Crossley. She's host of W. H is under the radar you're on the radar for here Kelly. Welcome back. I'm so glad to be back and we're happy to have you back so. It has been a minute since the both of you have been on the show it's the first time that you're on the show in two thousand twenty, which is honestly like, wow, I know and a lot has happened since you were on this show, the coronavirus pandemic I became a survivor of the corona virus myself the movement now to defend black lives this extraordinary reckoning that's happening all across the country young people really turning up, and now the twenty twenty presidential election officially heating up amidst all of this it's been intense so Kelly start us off just what's your temperature check? How are you doing like for reals? I'm exhausted I'm exhausted physically and emotionally, and as I wrote about recently I have outraged fatigue and I'm trying to fight it Eddie. How're you doing? I'm holding on I'm just barely holding on actually it's just exhausted like Kelly. Trying to hold on tired of looking at this damn computer screen and really just trying to figure out a way to step away from this moment. You know because I'm drowning in it it's been pretty intense. It's crazy Julia for two people who feel exhausted and kind of drowning in it, I. Mean. We turn to Kelly and two Edita to help us to give context but I appreciate and this show who that we do we do let it all hang out as we used to say back in the nineteen seventies. But the point being about exhaustion I think it's important to recognize that and. Unfortunately, I feel like this level of exhaustion is going to continue because here we go twenty twenty election. And there is now a zoo meeting called the Democratic National Convention DNC which starts this week we. The. People. We the people call the forty eighth quadrennial Democratic National Convention to order. And it goes through Thursday, all our listeners. We're recording this conversation on a Monday afternoon so that you know, but you know the DNC I actually saw this video i. don't know if you saw it on twitter from Nineteen ninety-six, the DNC is starting in everyone's doing the Macarena. Acquit. On. Putting You this big Joyce Event and I remember that actually so it's going viral on twitter. Clinton's yeah yeah claims and ninety six. Oh I saw that. So anyway so they're doing them I got and I was like I remember these conventions and it's supposed to take place in Milwaukee. Obviously because pandemic, it's turned into this entirely virtual format talking about computer screens, Eddie? I'm like, oh So. What we do know is that on Thursday Joe Biden is scheduled to officially accept the nomination from his home state in Delaware on Thursday. On Monday night, the virtual convention featured speakers from former first, lady, Michelle Obama let me be as honest and clear as I possibly can. Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head. He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is to Senator Bernie Sanders at its most basic this election is about preserving our democracy. During, this president's term, the unthinkable has become normal. He has tried to prevent people from voting undermined the US Postal Service deployed military and federal agents against peaceful protesters threatened to delay the election and suggested that he will not leave office if he loses. Is Not normal and we must never treat it like it is but you all know and we have people here who are critical of the Democratic Party like we are of the Republican Party. You've already heard the critique right that a number of the speakers like including Sanders and club HR, and Buddha judge and cory booker, all of them former candidates. So we've heard a lot from these people and one twenty twenty candidate was clearly not invited guests that was Oh let's see Mexican, who represents the largest non white voting block potential voters yes. That would be Latinos and Latinas and yes, they did not invite Julia Castro. Who is the only Latino candidate in the primaries so I mean look there are literally only a handful of Latino or Latina speakers. There are no Muslim speakers scheduled.

"Second night of the Democratic National Convention will include former presidents and a very unique event that's never been done before. Joining us live double duty. Opie's Capitol Hill correspondent Mitchell Miller. Okay, Mitch, former first lady Michelle Obama had the big moment last night. What are Democrats doing tonight? For the encore? Welsh on they're going to have to former presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton speaking tonight, Jimmy Carter is to appear virtually with his wife, Rosalyn. This will be his first speech of the Democratic National Convention in eight years. He is now 95 years old. Bill Clinton's speech will be a lot different than an infamous one he gave when he was a rising political star is the governor of Arkansas Back in 1988 in Atlanta. He was supposed to speak of that convention for about 15 minutes. Instead, politicos will remember that he went on for nearly 40 minutes, and he actually got one of his biggest applause lines when he said in conclusion, That speech almost blew his national political aspirations. But he wasn't known for as the comeback kid for nothing any, of course, went on to become president. 18 92. The part of party does plan to feature a long list of potential rising stars tonight, including Stacey Abrams, who ran for governor of Virginia are rather of Georgia and New York's Alexandria, Ocasio Cortez. There's been some grumbling from the more liberal wing of the party that AOC is she's known as didn't get more time tonight. Also also speaking tonight, former presidential candidate John Kerry and Jill Biden. Now The regular part of conventions usually have that state roll call, and it has all kind of pageantry involved, but it will be very different this time around. Tell us about that. It will. I mean, everybody who's watched many political conventions over the years kind of loves that whole crazy, colorful moment when everybody brags on their state and talks about how either big or how great they are and how many electoral votes they have this time, there's going to be a virtual roll call. It's supposed to go across the country to every state in territory and only about 30 minutes, so it will lack that pageantry and colorful detail that we usually see. But each state will try to make a memorable moment. D. C. Mayor Mariel Bowser is expected to speak for the district and will call for DC State would statehood, which has gained some momentum here in Congress, at least on the House side after earlier approval of legislation this year, and many of the state messages will have a personal touch on the positive side. For viewers. The state roll call can be very long and me and During during a normal convention. So this time we'll While it will lack the pop, it

"Hold night two of their virtual convention, not a whole lot of policy talk. On night, one of the DNC was more about delivering a feeling both that President Trump is wrong for the country, and Joe Biden is Remedy. Last night's highlight was former first lady Michelle Obama. She acknowledged he is not a political person by nature, but spoke with a mother's concern about what she's seeing happened to the country, saying President Trump's lack of empathy stoked hatred in the darkest corners of society while failing to lead America through the pandemic and economic crisis boxes.

The Democratic National Convention Was Virtual

"And we're crossing to the United States. Now for date on the Democratic Party's National Convention this year's event was a virtual affair. Monaco's US election correspondent. Tomas. Lewis stayed up late so you didn't have to. My honor to represent Milwaukee in Congress into kickoff. The Twenty Twenty Democratic convention. Well this first ever totally virtual convention, an opening night of major party's convention. There is certainly a a slightly surreal add proceedings. The reality of watching a speaker on stage in front of a roaring crowd is really quite different to watching a series of speakers speaking directly to you through the camera lens to those viewers sitting at home, and there were some moments of real poignancy. Perhaps the most notable among them were the brothers of George Floyd who spoke about the need to end police brutality and racial injustice in the US. Is the hidden legacy for our brother. Josh should be allowed today Brianna Taylor should be alive today a mart arbor should lose the torture of a man who had voted for Donald Trump but had succumbed to the corona. Virus. The coronavirus has made it clear that there are two Americas. America that Donald Trump lives in and the America that my father died in the human stories as well. Videos posted from voters around the country which I think really effective in fulfilling the slogan of the Democratic Convention, which is we the people and I think that is what Joe Biden's campaign in the Democrats trying to get across in this convention is that this is a party for everyone and this election really is an election of consequence for everyone to no matter who you vote for. The most notable speeches of the evening came first from Bernie Sanders John Hayden's former rival for the presidency. Our campaign ended several months ago. But our movement continues at is getting stronger every day. Many of the ideas we fought for that just a few years ago were considered radical on now mainstream denise sanders have been criticized at the start of the campaign for not really doing much to quell the movie trio lakeside of his support, a pretty unflinching in their criticism. Those who are running against Bernie Sanders. He did quite a lot quite explicitly to try and bridge the gap between the Progressive Side of the Party and the more moderate more centrist side. He said that he was willing to work with anybody with Republicans conservatives, moderate Democrats and progressives to saying that to vote Joe Biden in would be the most crucial part of furthering the progressive. Agenda and he listed some of the policy pints in quite some detail that he said spoke to a progressive agenda but were Joe Biden's policy pilots together we must build a nation that is more equitable, more compassionate and more inclusive. Now, it'd be interesting to see how much sway that will cut with a lot of Bernie Sanders supporters whether the anger they felt in two thousand. Sixteen when he lost the nomination to Hillary Clinton this kind of sense of betrayal they fell to the Democratic Party at having allegedly skewed vote towards Hillary Clinton instead of Bernie. Sanders. We'll see how potent ideas this time around but the final speech of the night came from the former first lady Michelle. Obama really was an extraordinary speech is whenever we look to this White House. For some leadership or consolation or any semblance of steadiness what we get instead is chaos division was sitting presumably in a corner of her home in her living room and the speech really covered a huge range of topics. She she offered a riff on a very famous phrase she gave at the Convention for years ago. A lot of people have asked me when others are going Solo. Does going high still really work. My ass you went on to be explicit about what she meant in that she said that by going hi, it's not just about saying good things were thinking good things that actually have to act. You have to explain you have to debate. You have to be proactive and being engaged with your neighbors and those in your communities and it's really rose to a crescendo being incredibly personal. You know that I tell you exactly what I'm feeling no, I hate politics. But you also know that I care about this nation. I really very effective. It was one of those speeches again, sort of made slightly surreal by the fact that this is a very prominent, very popular person speaking directly to you into your home via the television screen but that actually she managed to pull off this idea that she was I think talking directly to you and that is not something very easy to pull off I. Think it is. A speech that will be cited going forward through the weeks of the campaign by Democratic voters and I. Think it really was the kind of finale if you like of the first night of the democratic. Convention the Democrats were hoping for this is an unprecedented election campaign and a Democratic National Convention like which has never been staged before whether it has the potency when all is said and done. The usual in person conventions whereas the power and the noise of groups voters all gathered together before speakers on the stage remains to be seen but I think there will be much to be taken. The will be positive about the first night of the convention this evening. Tell us. Thank you. That was US election correspondent Thomas Lewis Virtual Convention I imagined Thomas. We'll be tank while virtual work. In. The days and weeks ahead.

Democratic Convention: Democrats make their case for Joe Biden

"Are making their together defeat Donald Trump and elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as our next president and vice president. Former first lady Michelle Obama, in a taped address, offered her emotional reasons for supporting Joe Biden. If we have any hope of ending this chaos, we have got to vote for Joe Biden, like our lives depend on it. Still this Invention is unlike anyone before no big arenas that take on a rock concert vibe. I'm speaking to you from a small radio studio in Washington, not the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, where convention organizers that once playing the host this event and that has presented bill challenges and opportunities So Ji Hinojosa, this senior advisor and the communications director for the Democratic National Committee. She joined me and Fox News radio political analyst Josh Cross Our after the curtain dropped or, more appropriately, the video conference ended on the convention's first night. So cheese. We were watching this and in listening along this evening, it seemed to me that that the strategy for this first night was trying to maybe build a big tent sort of explained to me. How this evening came together with having a virtual state shared by by somebody like Bernie Sanders, who represents certainly that more progressive wing of the Democratic Party. And former Ohio Governor John Kasich, who is not a Democrat at all. Well, absolutely. I think tonight just showed unity, which is it kicked off the first day of our convention of Uniting America. And I think that whether it was John case are Bernie Sanders or Michelle Obama. It just shows A broad coalition that we're building. Then there are also the stories of Americans all across this country. You had a a dreamer who is on the front lines of this pandemic on DH who is a first responder. You had a woman. I think this was one of the main moments of the night that everyone keeps pointing Tio Kristin from Arizona, who lost her father to Kobe. My dad was a healthy 65 year old. His Onley preexisting condition was trusting Donald Trump, and for that he paid with his life. And so that was just one of those gut wrenching moments when you realize listen, look at what this man has done to our country on DH. Yet you have leaders from all across this country, regardless of who they voted for in 2016 come together and make their voices heard. He's part of the strategy here to try and win over. Maybe those who had supported President Trump previously over to the Democratic side. Is this trying to make sure that those who supported somebody in the primary other than Joe Biden? Support him. Now is that sort of the big sort of strategy here that's underway trying to bring like everybody together. We absolutely want to reach out to everyone. That's the only way that we win. We want to make sure that those who are registered to vote that didn't turn out in 2016 turnout because they understand the stakes in the election regardless of political affiliation. We want people to know who if they voted for Donald Trump in 2016, that they can come over and vote for Joe Biden and that he will be studying leadership. We also want people to know those who are first time voters and registered to vote for the first time because they're angry. What's happening in this country? Well untenable for Joe Biden and this is making sure that if that we have the broadest coalition possible, because that is the only way that we win. But how do you govern that way? How does a John Kasich Republican and Bernie Sanders, Democrat Find their way in a governing structure. Well, what you have seen and from Joe Biden is that he can work across the aisle. He's done this to rot his entire career. And he wants to get things done. And he wants to make sure that I think that what you saw tonight were these three crises. Ray and Joe Biden wants to tackle them, and that is the pandemic. That is the economic downturn. And that is the racial inequalities that face our country right now, and what we were trying to showcase tonight is that Joe Biden Steady leadership could get us through this, and it's going to take a broad coalition to do that. And to work across party lines in order to get us out of this mess, and so you can govern this way, Frank, you have to reach out. To various parts of not only our party, but you know all Americans in order to do this, and Joe Biden will stick by his values, as he always has.

First night of Democratic National Convention focuses on unity and pandemic toll

"This was one message from Democrats on the first night of their national convention. Whenever we look to this White house for some leadership or consolation, or any semblance of steadiness, what we get instead is chaos division. And a total and utter lack of empathy. Former first lady Michelle Obama was last night's headline speaker. There was no applause or cheering. The DNC is over Tool this year That was a pre recorded message. Mrs. Obama was alone in a living room. NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson was watching. Good morning, Mara. Good morning. How did it go last night? It was smooth, no technical glitches. It was certainly a convention night produced for this moment, this pandemic moments Sometimes it looked like a very highly produced zoom call. It had a lot more ordinary people in it, then it would have had otherwise, if it had been live before an audience, But in the end, you know, with this election being so weird. It turned out that a lot of things are very normal and happened changed it all. Democrats are asking people to judge Donald Trump by the same criteria any president would be judged by did he keep people safe and prosperous? And last night, the biggest impact was from two totally normal speeches. Bernie Sanders. The ideological opponent, the runner up showing that the party was unified. And then Michelle Obama, who is clearly the most effective communicator right now in the Democratic Party, doing what she did in the last two conventions, which is bring a really emotional message.

I'll be so awkward here and somebody gives some great speech just in their basement. That's right. I wondering if when Biden gives his acceptance speech, this is how you know I'm going to tell you. This is the sign. This is how you know that the party is afraid and that he truly does have dementia of some sort if his acceptance speech is recorded. How will we know? I don't know. Somebody will get that information. Somehow we will find that out. But if that is recorded, Yeah, then you know This is scary, because a guy who doesn't have it all together is about Teo win the nomination and could win an election. Here's how gullible people are. They could have the recorded video and just put a live logo on there, and people be like See, nobody would know the difference. No news here. Why ask any questions? Somebody it'll get out Somehow. Somehow it will get out. If if it is pre recorded, you will know Because Trump ain't going to do it pre recorded Now He's got to go out straight from the hip. Yeah, that's right.

2020 DNC begins with big adjustments forced by pandemic

"As the Democratic Convention Begins Today a New Wall Street Journal NBC News Poll Shows, Joe Biden holding his lead over president trump nationally the poll gives biden fifty percent compared to president trump at forty one percent WSJ's editor errands. Inner fees are pole. The Pole does include some caution signs for Mr Biden more voters have negative view of him than a positive one and it's been that way for about a year in addition fifty, eight percent of voters who say they'll back Mr Biden say that their vote is more in opposition to president trump than it is in favor of Joe Biden. That's a potential sign of softness in his support. UNDIS- first night of the convention, we'll hear from former first lady Michelle Obama Senator Bernie Sanders and governor Andrew Cuomo. It's a convention like nine other as the pandemic has made typical proceedings impossible for a closer look at what we can expect joined by national political reporter Sabrina Siddiqi Sabrina? We're glad you're here both much having me. Let's talk about the week ahead. This is an untraditional venue, a whole new set of challenges. What is the number one goal? The number one task for the DNC this week I think the number one task is to make a clear and coherent case for why voters should house president trump from the white, house if you are. Former, vice president Joe Biden. And Senator Kamala Harris, his newly minted running mate as well as a lot of the prominent Democrats who are lined up to speak you are addressing the American public at a time when they have been in the midst of a pandemic for a period of more than five months their entire lives have been sidetracked by the coronavirus, and this is really an opportunity because the public will be tuning into the election for the first time in a release significant way since we got into the general election. Portion of the cycle to make the case for why they should put Joe Biden in the White House this is really that opportunity to talk about the impact of the pandemic, the president's handling of the pandemic and to also present. What they've been trying to do, which is this message around unity and restoring stability and normalcy to the Government Sabrina. Looking back to last week when Vice President Biden and Senator Harris had their first joint appearance together they were wearing face masks, they socially distance to an extent. How do you portray or convey chemistry and warmth to voters when there are such restrictions in place that's going to be released striking to watch because typically you see the vice presidential nominee, take the stage with the presidential nominee, lift their arms in the air. The balloons are dropping the families are onstage. Sometimes the former primary rivals are very to project this idea of unity. You're not going to have that Democrats have been very clear and Joe Biden cited again when he took the stage with Comma Harris last week that they are listening to the science they are biding by social distance requirements because they want. To take seriously the consequences of the pandemic, but it does very much changed the mood and you think about how former President Obama will be speaking his camaraderie with his former vice president. Joe Biden was very popular with the public because they were very close in that banter that you would often see at live events between the two maybe they'll be taking place over zoom. There's a lot that we don't know clearly, there has been a lot of work that's going into this. They've had months to prepare for this inevitability, and so a lot of the focus will now be on just how well they execute. A large scale event like a party convention in the middle of a global pandemic Sabrina let's talk about messaging. Is it simply going to be about a referendum on President trump or? Harris GonNa talk about her life story. Where's this balance GONNA take place? So it's been clear from the outset of Joe. Biden's campaign that he sees. This election is a referendum on president trump would have been fascinating to watch is that he launched his campaign with this idea that? The American public wants a return to normal. Stability, and they're not seeking a revolution in not seeking a movement and it's clear poll after poll that the American public does see this election as a referendum on president trump, you've seen the president's approval ratings dip during the pandemic, and so I think a lot of the messaging from Biden from Senator Kamala Harris the vice presidential nominee is really going to center on what the last four years have looked like under this president and particularly. Honing in on the coronavirus pandemic and what they say is a failure on the part of the president to steer the country out of this crisis Sabrina looking at the week ahead, the DNC obviously is going to want to remain focused on its task at had yet. We know the president based off of past history is likely to tweet or issue a statement or give a speech that will create some kind of turbulence. How does the DNC keep its focus? One of the greatest challenges for? Democrats not just since president trump took office but even since he was a candidate for president has been to not. Get baited into playing his game. This president is a master of. Changing the news cycle within a second and overtaking events with a controversial remark or tweet. And for Democrats, the goal will be to stay on message. They have had a very. Consistent message especially around the president's handling of the coronavirus in the course of the last few months but. If you're at the Democratic Party for Joe Biden for La- Harris you've got a plan and you go out and you execute that plan regardless of what the president is saying or tweeting on a given day.

"And one of my favorite guests. One of my favorite Americans is Kevin Jackson. He's an American Christian conservative and a proud capitalist as his own radio show called the black sphere radio show and more. Kevin jackson. Welcome for the first time to twenty one thousand nine to the Bill Cunningham show and Kevin. How are you? Bill. New year happy new year to you. Now, so many issues so little time. I wanna get your take on one issue, which is of importance, which is the so-called suspension of an Iowa. Congressman who allegedly and I think he did say a few phrases. He should not have said, I don't know what the hell white nationalism is on probably against it. But I'm not I think it's a terrible thing. But congressman Steve king of Iowa seemingly used the term, white nationalist. And also western civilization is showed. They got rid of one term and not the other nonetheless the ton of bricks is hit him in the head just recently, elected, an Iowa. Now, he's been stripped of all of his emblems has been stripped of committee membership chair of some subcommittee. Got stripped to that the media is calling for a scalp. I can recall a few years back that a man who later became the president of the United States Barack Hussein Obama embraced black nationalism stood next to Jeremiah Wright who was. Black nationalist for twenty years. So the most very acidic worth terrible things against Jews and white people and Americans in general and the media gave him a complete Texas, El Paso. We had Keith Ellison US congressman for about eight years in Minnesota saying awful awful things about Jews about white Americans. He was a devotee and still is of Louis Farrakhan, co-chair the National Democratic Party. This wasn't some obscure Iowa. Congressman this guy was right there at the top with Peres leading the Democratic Party. And then when these things have become public Eddie pizza black women on a regular basis, they ignore the victims and the metoo movement era and elected him to come attorney general, Minnesota, do you see a double standard here? Spot there Bill? I just see a double standard. That's all Steve king. Steve king didn't say anything that warranted. This reaction. The problem is is that we live in a time where Republicans have no backbone, and they immediately after jump onto the you know, they have to jump on his carcass. Because once the Democrats knocked him down if that's their responsibility. Now, what they should have said in no way. Look, I know Steve king. I know I know his son, and I know him personally, they're not white nationalist. Or whatever what he was saying is I don't care what you're in. And I think most people would agree. I don't agree with the area nation. I don't agree with white nationalism. But I don't agree with black nationalism. I don't agree with the new Black Panther party. Right. But I don't I want them to be able to say what they want think you gotta let full before. And and we're smart enough to go. Okay. I don't agree with that philosophy essentially, that's all I looked at the transcript, and I will tell you point blank in the way that we've been trained. People would have had that knee jerk response to go. My gosh. What did he say? He he did not espouse anything that said, I agree with these people or whatever he said, you gotta let them say what they want to say sure, you just like you have too many these other folks that people that you talked about the Farrakhan's and the Reverend Wright's say what they have to say the only difference in the double standard is what's the outcome. The outcome is Barack Obama was made president and Keith Ellison was made attorney general and they are both cross burning racist against white, folks. Think about this. Michelle Obama made this comment Bill he said, you know, what I met Barack I was skeptical of him because of all the white people who were funding over him. I love that. Because I recall that can you imagine if some of a white first lady said when I first met Bush forty three now bunch of black people fawning over him. So I was suspicious of those black people. What what what? Wasn't a single outcry of racism, in fact, I watched Eric Bolling on what's now back to being the blaze TV, they were was doing is this racist and the comments he was working with his Baltimore professor, who's an obvious leftist. And he he was given this guy softballs I would've asked him that question is it racist or the first lady Michelle Obama, former first lady to make that comment because see that's a racist comment. There was a there's a professor right now. I'm trying to go up to the university of Georgia to to get this guy fired. He is openly and blatantly said we need to kill. They're going to have to be some deaths of white people before black people can be where we need to be. He blatantly says, he blatantly said, the white people are evil at cetera, and he teaches at a college. And by the way, you and I both know he's no this isn't an anecdotal guy. This is being taught in hundreds of colleges around the country. There's always one of these guys. Out there. Nobody's confronting him. So for them to jump on a frigging Steve king over nothing to me is ridiculous. But a sense the messages to what socially acceptable words can be said. And which ones cannot be said if you're on the left side, you can be Keith Ellison beat the hell out of black women in the metoo era. You could be Barack Hussein Obama in a racist. Black ministers church for twenty years, you marriage you and baptize your children. And you're like, you're like a vine inside the church, and none of that sticks to you. But if you're an obscure Iowa congressman letting I've had him on my show once or twice years ago, but he's not one of the leaders of the Republican party like Obama is or like Michelle Obama that was most respected woman in America or Keith Ellison. Not like a leader. He says one of four hundred and thirty five they jump on you with both feet a ton of bricks hit. You it sends the message that the philosophy of this Georgia professor is acceptable. What Kamala Harris said about we Catholics is acceptable. What? Congressman what's her name, the one with the scar from Minnesota what she said about Jews four or five years ago is certainly acceptable. And I'm looking at the double standard, and I'm shocked how about Kamala Harris, Senator from California, I'm a practicing Roman Catholic, and she's going after judicial nominee in Nebraska who's been a member of the knights of Columbus. The knights of Columbus for Turner organization in which men and women had similar org- organizations called the civility in the Catholic church, and the these guys who dress up in their uniforms. I can recall is a little boy Mark marched into mass with swords they were like defending the faith. They raise thousands and thousands of dollars in each bears to hand out in food baskets when my family was down and out when I was a boy the knights of Columbus. And the Saint Vincent depaul society was there to give Catholics who needed food and help. It was a fraternal organization, but Kamala Harris says because it discriminates on the basis of. Of gender, which is only men can join somehow you can't participate in public life. If you're a Catholic. Well, Bill, here's the deal. We we allow this nonsense to occur. I mean, if I ran an all male organization, I would say, so I would go. We don't want you in here. Why it's like one of my buddies. We had thirty of us go with him on a hunting trip. And he any literally put it in the Email. He says you're you're genitalium needs to be on the outside. Not on the inside. No women allow most people would have been like we we didn't freak out. We were like, okay. What did he say? Don't bring your wives number any girlfriends isn't dude. And and I'm proud to be a been a part of it. Look there are things women do that. I don't want to be a part of they could say now, this is a women only we're all gonna get together. I don't go gosh should be able to go to you. Go have your fun. Go do what you do. Right. But now everything's gotta be scrutinized. Everything's got to be weighed against some sort of political calculation of you know, why is it have this many of this this many of that or is it an inclusive enough? There's there's a time to exclude and where it begins. It begins with you. You can bring people into your what about this Bill? If you decided today, I'm not going to have any more female friends. Is that your prerogative? Yes. It is as a human being you can say I don't want to deal with any women. So if you became a member of a group, and you said, my religion is not associated with women can somebody persecute or prosecute you for that. If that's your view, the answer should be. Heck, no. But we've now come to the point where forget about your individual freedoms forget about your group. Freedoms of whatever is inasmuch as men can say, I want to have a group women can say they only want women in a group good. But we're now and by the way since we can all declare and make ourselves whatever the seventy-one genders. They claim are out they would anymore. Well, speaking of that, we're gonna we're gonna talk about the shutdown and Pelosi's cancelled trip, but before we get there Karen Pence who've I've met her two or three times. She's the second lady the wife of a Mike Pence. The vice president is teaching now Emmanuel Christian school and the suburbs of Washington DC. And this is a Christian. School privately funded. No government activities and part of the principles of going to this Christian school is some expression in some sort of handbook that you must live your life based upon biblical standards. And so you voluntarily join a private Christian school, and they teach kids between the ages of five and fourteen mom and dad have to sign something, which I'm sure it's not enforced that certain activities, you will not engage in which includes homosexual activities bisexual activities, and if you're not married premarital sex. You can't do that stuff. In other words, the entire school system and Emmanuel Christian school outside of Washington DC is based upon Christianity and the bible now she's being attacked as anti LGBTQ L. She's being attacked as being anti gay. She's being no she says, I'm not anti anything. I'm pro the bible. I'm christianity. I'm not against anybody is not people its activities. How? Ridiculous. Isn't it when the mainstream media attacks a Christian school for believing Christian precepts that have been around for two thousand years again Bill we we allow it? We you know, if we were to fight back harder, for example. I would if I were second lady I'd sue Kamala Harris for defamation or something. We have to make people on the left pay for their idiocy pay for telling us how we're supposed to live. How we're supposed to think. Look, I started a group called the MGM w the not gay men women. You can't do that. You can't do that. You know, what I wanted to start? The he to movement can I start the movement would says that we men live shorter lives. We have less friends. More of us are incarcerated more women graduate from high school graduate from college more women have occupancy and law, schools and medical schools. What about the heat to movement? And I'd I'd have your hashtag. I'm with him. I'm with him. Right. Look the point of it is that it's all skewed. We're supposed to I believe her right? It's men over women over men. No matter what don't even don't even look into the background of the accuser and see if she's a liar or scumbag, just believe them, but we allow this stuff because we don't sued..

"With a shut down for at least a few days in the new year. And that means that with the shutdown heading into its seventh day. Tomorrow and on the seventh day, they rested. Well, people were furloughed have been resting a lot. But the government still gonna end up owning them money. Is there a better way to handle this thing? We'll talk about it. Coming up on the Michael Medved Show. We'll also talk about what has been commercially a phenomenal phenomenal year for movies. And I'm not talking here about the quality of the artistry or the substance of the films are the families who the ability of any of these movies. We're talking about just sheer dollars and not just dollars because sometimes they make up those movie dollars by raising prices higher and higher and higher. More people by a very substantial percentage of going out to see movies in two thousand eighteen why we'll talk about that until about the best and the worst movies of the year. Plus, I'll give you a full Franken. Fair review of the big new movie about Ruth, Bader Ginsburg. It is. Called on the basis of sex. And no, it is not a steamy. NC seventeen melodrama. It's it's actually a PG thirteen rated. Tribute to the supreme court Justice who is having quite a moment. Right. This moment, we will get to that. And also review the new Oscar contender of Beale street could talk. It's from the director who won the Academy Award for moonlight which was just a couple of years ago. Okay. When we get to all of that. We will try to assess what it all means in the context of the culture and the changes in where we're going, but one other way to look at that. As who? Do you admire most it's an annual Gallup poll, and what's interesting is somebody who has won the Gallup poll for my most admired woman. For seventeen years in a row. Has been knocked off her throne. And in fact, the most admired man and most. Admired woman. Actually, I have something in common this year. They both have the same last name. No, it's not Donald and Milania, though, they both turn up on the list among the most admired males and most admired females, and it certainly is not Bill and Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton had won most admired woman in the world. Seventeen years in a row. It's unbelievable for the first time in the last seventeen years a woman other than Hillary Clinton has been named by Americans. The woman they admire most this is from the Gallup poll. Former first lady Michelle Obama who finished second to Clinton three times in this currently touring to promote her recently released autobiography which is called becoming and it is a gigantic bestseller. She won by a significant margin. This year. Oprah Winfrey was second. So Hillary dropped from first to third she's not even present. And she's run into controversy and a falling popularity and esteem because it isn't even close Michelle Obama was chosen by fifteen percent of the people who are asked there. Just ask an open ended question who is the most admired woman in the world to you. And Michelle Obama got fifteen percent. Hillary Clinton got four percent. Oprah winfrey. Got four percent Hillary's actually tied with Malania. Now, I'm not sure you would those who admire Malania would feel any admiration at all for Hillary or vice versa. But I think this raises all kinds of interesting questions. Is who do we admire and why if you were asked this question who in the world, would you pick as the person most to admire it's I think of a revealing question for a lot of people in terms of refining. What it is. That you admire what you think the world needs more of what you think deserves praise. One eight hundred nine five five seventeen seventy six if you want to come up with your own nomination for most admired male, most admired female and explain the reasons why. We'd love to hear it. One eight hundred nine five five seventeen seventy six is our phone number. Okay. The the male side of the equation. There's been the same winner for eleven consecutive years. He has the same last night name as the winner for most admired female last name is Obama. It's Michelle and Barack Obama, wait a minute. Wait. I thought this was supposed to be the most incurably racist horrible bigoted country where no one who is black can possibly get a chance that President Obama was handicapped, by the fact that it was black. I don't believe that's true for a minute. President Obama was chosen by nineteen percent of Americans as the personnel admire most. If that's you by the way, you can call and explain what you admire about President Obama. Donald Trump was chosen in second place by thirteen percent. And they're really the only ones who registered the other candidates that they put down for most admired person, George W Bush two percent. Pope francis. Two percent. Bill gates. One percent Bernie Sanders. One percent Bernie Sanders. You think he's the most admirable male in the world. Guy who honeymooned in the Soviet Union. He did. And it was before it was Russia was the old Soviet Union who conceived his only child while living in a treehouse. He did. Most Admiral Versonnaz Bernie Sanders below Bernie Sanders. Bill clinton. The Dalai Lama. Joe Biden, I'm surprised he's not higher and then Elon Musk really most admired person in the world. Hasn't. He gone off the rails just a bit. You think in two thousand eighteen he's got to be one of the biggest losers of the year. And then Mike Pence Mike Pence would have been higher if he hadn't been sitting like the elf on the shelf in that meeting went so well between Trump and Pelosi. That was the meeting where President Trump said he would be proud to shut down the government. In any event. Those are your most admired men, most admired women or most admired men, and why one of the things that I think is very clear here is we have a tendency in the United States to only honor and recognize people when they die. Because if he were still alive, certainly I think you could make a case that George H W Bush deserve consideration for the most admired person in the country. I will tell you that I believe in. You've heard me express this before that the late John McCain. We also lost this year would deserve consideration for the most admirable mail in the United States, but you can't list them because they're no longer with us. But we still want to recognize people who are. Exemplary Americans deeply, patriotic Americans. Who? Who deserves some recognition not just when we miss them when they're gone. One eight hundred nine five seventeen seventy six Sherry in Cleveland. You have a nomination for most admired woman. Hey, sharon. I would say that Nikki Haley is the most admired female at this time. She's articulate she stands up for democracy for the United States for Israel, and wherever it is against all the bullies in the world that are hypocritical and Toronto. You know, that's a that's a very very good nomination. In fact, Nikki Haley is on the top ten this year's first time. He's placed on the top ten the chichi places. Unfortunately, right below Ellen Degeneres who I think probably deserves the distinction considerably less than ambassador Haley. I I I am still waiting to see what exactly Nikki Haley is going to do next. Whatever it is. I know it will be of great service to the Republic and to its people. We will be right back on more about most admired people, and is it usual for the president not to win..

"And that he wasn't really suited for that kind of service in Washington as good as he was as an Intel officer in the military in combat zones in places like Baghdad and ghanistan. It just didn't work very well when you tried to put him in a civilian environment like like, the DIA or perhaps a senior job at the White House. Well, as your colleague David Ignatius has written today. It looks like he has come all the way through the looking glass and made this a complete circle and his his column today compliments your reporting our thanks to Greg Miller for returning to our broadcast and again to our audience. His book is the apprentice, Trump Russia and the subversion of American democracy after a break coming up for us. We knew it was going to be emotional. And it was, but it was the awkwardness of today that we couldn't predict until it played out in real time. We'll have that when we continue. He showed me what it means to be a president who served with integrity leads with courage and with love, and it's hard for the citizens of our country. When they history books are written. They will say that George H W Bush was a great president of the United States. It was moments like that today a personal and emotional eulogy by a former president about his father, the former president. And it was the sense that a rare kind of peace prevailed for a time in Washington today. All of those things led to this from Susan Glasser who covers Washington for the New Yorker, and we quote, what does it tell you that the good events in Washington. These days are funerals the front row at that service was a lot of things it was a monument to our continuity of government, and our democracy. It was a rare gathering of presidents and their spouses, and it was straight up awkward for all the obvious reasons starting when the president entered and took his seat took off his coat shook hands with former presence. Obama former first lady Michelle Obama, and that was it zero interaction between Donald Trump and the Clintons or for that matter Trump, and the Carters Philip Rucker of the Washington Post describes the Tableau this way. Trump took his seat on the isle next to his wife with three past presidents and first lady seated to her side. I was the President Trump said was illegitimate Barack Obama. Then the first lady he called a profligate spender of taxpayer dollars, Michelle Obama, then the president he called the worst abuser of women Bill Clinton, then the first lady and secretary of state he said should be in jail Hillary Clinton, and then the president he said was the second worst behind Obama Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn put it this way. It was a cloudy somber day in DC. And there was no shortage of shade in that front row with us for more Kimberly Atkins, Washington bureau chief for the. Boston Herald Sabrina Siddiqi political reporter for the guardian. Good evening and welcome to you. Both kimberly. I want to start with graciousness and clip by one a show you that's already been around the world, George W Bush on the day. They are preparing to say farewell to his father comes over to that row of presidents. And he delivers in short order, a cough drop to Michelle Obama continuing joke that started at the McCain service when he reached into his pocket and gave the former first lady at a cough drop. She later joked that it was old. And he said, yeah, we got a lot of those ineffective still kicking around the house. Well today again on this day that they're gathering for the Morial service for his father. He thinks to do that. In addition to greeting everybody in the first row that was graciousness. We didn't see a lot of that from everybody. Yeah. And it's really extrordinary that again at a funeral. We see some. One of former president in morning sun. Take the time to have in his hand, a little gift to share warm moment to honor this friendship that he has with the former first lady that bridges a number of divides, including political and that seems so foreign in the current Trumpism of Washington where politics aren't just polarized bitterly polarized..

Fear is the coward's way of leadership trying to remain positive while the country grapples with the new president president that Obama can't believe is not Hillary Clinton writing in her book. She still wonders how people voted for Trump whom she calls a misogynist people have to be educated. They have to be focused on the issues, and they have to go to the polls if they want their politics to reflect their values and how on inauguration day, she witnessed a different type of celebration than her husband's the vibrant diversity.

But in this case, maybe it day, realizing I made my own optic adjustment. I stopped even trying to smile. One Trump that Obama isn't openly criticizing is Malania. Trump is the current first lady, how do you think she is doing in defining who she is? You know, one of the things you learn as a former it's like, I don't judge what a current is doing you know it.

"Former first lady Michelle Obama has her memoir it's called becoming. And it's going to be released next week. And I guess in the book it launches a series of tax on Donald Trump. The funny thing is it doesn't matter. Whether you're on the right or the left if you want to sell your book. Trump is a big hot topic. So, you know, obviously, this is getting news. Now her book is getting a lot of. Publicity. And so I wouldn't be surprised that there would be some discussion on Trump. But one thing that kind of caught my ear on this one. Is Michelle Obama said she would quote never forgive Trump for the rumors spread questioning the legitimacy of President Barack Obama's pressure ticket. And she said this threatened her family safety. Trump bringing up the question of where Brock Obama was born. Threatened her children's safety. Now, I think all politicians are at risk. The stuff being said about Trump the stuff that was said about Hillary Ivy. Both of them had to have major security details considering. So I like a little bit more detail. But she writes, what if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drops to Washington. What if that person went looking for our girls? Donald Trump with his loud and reckless innuendos was putting my family safe. You have risk after this. I never forgive him. Now, obviously, she's mad if Donald Trump was line and politicians do that all the time. I mean, these these campaigns are ugly. And I'm sure Donald Trump is upset at the lies and the fake news that puts him and his grandchildren and children are at risk. But the reason why this kind of caught my eye is not only my doctor, not only am I a professor, but I'm also a broadcast journalist and the one thing that never set right with me. That just always bothered me. Even though it really doesn't matter now because President Obama's not an office, but the nineteen ninety one Harvard law review biography. Of obama. That back in nineteen ninety one. Because apparently in one thousand nine hundred Gumbo was elected the first black president of the Harvard law review, a student publication, featuring you know, analysis of important legal matters the yearbook includes Obama's biographies say born in Kenya. Raised in Indonesia and Hawaii. Now. That I never heard back in the nineties, right? When there's no data of that being corrected a redacted, which means if anybody who knew Obama. Right. Saw that entry. You would think of that was an error would have gotten fixed. And then a biographer when you are taking a when you are getting a biography. You always assume the, you know, you're talking to somebody in America there from America. Where were you born? I was born in Los Angeles to Salt Lake or I was born in New York City. Right. But for her bright Kenya. That's pretty random. One hell of an error. Back in the nineties for a biographer. And when I first heard about that. I was like, okay. Well, you know, what people do make mistakes? Got the country wrong. Even though you would think the country by default was United States. But, you know, maybe she, you know. So I you know, she accidentally maybe the computer picked the country, but his family. What is Obama senior wasn't Kenya? That's not very random. Born in Kenya. Raised in Indonesia. Then there was another biography..
