Fresh update on "las vegas" discussed on TIME's Top Stories
"Attack on a gay bar in Colorado Springs didn't happen in a vacuum. By Philip Elliott. A bullet doesn't make a sound. It makes the initial roar as it leaves the gun, sure. It's shocked to the body as matched with a spiteful slap to the eardrum. The noise can expand if it echoes, as is often the case when fired in a closed space, like a school hallway at newtown, Connecticut. A basement Bible study in Charleston, South Carolina, or the foyer of a synagogue in Pittsburgh. The shell casing can make its own distinct sound, whether it bounces on the linoleum floor of a school classroom and Yuval, Texas, or is muffled in the carpet 32 floors above the Las Vegas Strip. And the reverberations can last years. Especially for survivors who just wanted to get through Valentine's Day and Parkland, Florida, or to find their safe space in Orlando. And then there is the second wave reverberation. A history lesson that tells us that any conversation about trying to quiet the ear shattering explosion of each bullet is pointless. That ultimately nothing can be done about guns in a country that has more weapons than citizens. So, as is the case far too often, the screech of yet more bullets established America's latest soundtrack over the weekend as a gunman burst into a Colorado Springs gathering place for members of the LGBTQ community Saturday night, opening fire to kill 5, and injure at least 18 more. A suspect is being held on preliminary charges of murder and hate crimes, but those are subject to change as more is learned about him. Officials have been careful not to assign a motivation just yet to the attack on the club cue, but it stretches credulity to think the suspect, in this case, just happened to show up heavily armed and wearing body armor at one of the few places in the springs where gay people, including teens on some evenings, felt comfortable. It also demands an aggressive suspension of suspicion to think that current national environment toward LGBTQ rights has no bearing when a 22 year old man allegedly walks into a gay bar and starts killing. This legislative season alone, lawmakers have introduced at least 344 anti LGBTQ proposals and 25 of them are now law, according to the Human Rights Campaign. The most common headlines around this onslaught of legislation has been to keep transgender youth from pursuing healthcare, playing sports on the teams of their choosing, or even identifying themselves in schools. Very controversial efforts if you spend much time in the conservative corners of the

"I'm not done with where we left off this conversation about the horn and the challenge and the video that may be coming and potentially some black eyes on me in the next few videos. Oh man, okay. All right, I got you. So back to this Vegas thing, you know, and I can't stop paying attention to this now. Thought I thought of you, Jay over the weekend. In what way? Can you side shot side shot? iPhone situation whereas iPhone got run over and we had to take it to the Apple store now. I think we talked about that previously. So we had an appointment. It's in the mall. We go to the mall, the mall's crazy as can be crazy busy. Okay. And I think the mall traffic is coming back with the kids because of Stranger Things because of what they've done to repopulate it. So the Apple store is downstairs, we come in on the top level, okay? Gotta take the escalator, right? I think I know it's mall, you're going to, yes. Yeah, yeah, right. That one. Top of the escalator circled around the entrance to the escalator. Oh, lord. Completely blocking access to the, let me just reframe this for you. Holiday shopping season has already started. Crazy busy. We're just trying to get to our appointment, circled around the top of the escalator where you have to get on it. Is a family, stopped and completely conversing. In the middle of the road, the elevator was completely blocked. That's just ridiculous. People are just oblivious to what's going on around them. I really think the little air horn thing carrying this air horn in my pocket, if you guys don't know what that was all about. And just tooting it at people from behind. It will startle them, but we have to film this, right? You have to. So I think having side shot with you may give you a little protection. Yeah. You know, could we like throw him under the bus and have him toot the horn? Yeah, if he's, I don't know if he'd be willing to do it. He's super courteous. But I know, but still, man, you know, yeah. Just a little bit funny. And I don't know that you have to be aggressive. I think you just say, excuse me, and you keep moving, right? Yeah, pretty much. I think that's what you have to do. You know, you can apologize, but you never know what that's going to return. I mean, I really want to hear from people on this.

Gearing up for 2024
"It is that week. It's that week where we remind you every week that the game is Saturday. There might be Thanksgiving between now and the game, but it's really all about the game. I believe Byron York is an agnostic about Ohio State in Michigan as I am neutral about all the Republicans who were in Las Vegas. Am I right about that Byron you don't give a dog on about the whole state of Michigan or Ohio? That is absolutely let's say that for, but I don't care about the higher state in Michigan. I was raised with Alabama and auburn, which is a much more important contest in my humble opinion. Well, it's definitely not this year. I don't think you're going to find many people are going to rally to the Byron York point of view there. But what did Byron New York think about Las Vegas and the first of many candidate parades of 2023 24? Actually, here is something I would very much like to get to your opinion on, which is I'm sure you've watched several of Donald Trump's rallies over the past 6 months. And there are critics who say, well, they're not quite as spirited as they used to be, et cetera. But they're pretty as performances. Let's just talk as performance. They're actually pretty impressive. And when you put him next to anybody, other than Ron DeSantis, perhaps, but also Ron DeSantis, just as a performer on the stump. You put Trump next to Mike Pompeo or Ron DeSantis or Mike Pence or Nikki Haley if she changes her mind and decides to run against Donald Trump. Would you have a 2016 situation in which one of the performers is so much stronger than the others? That there's a bit of an imbalance there.
Republicans Discuss How to Move Away From Trump
"Welcome back, America two here at David and drucker. I didn't give a damn for the whole state of Michigan either because he is from California, but he was in Las Vegas last week for the first Republican candidate walk. It sort of like a fashion show and all the Republican candidates show up and this time it was the Republican Jewish coalition headed up by our old friend norm Coleman. David good, Thanksgiving week to you. What did you learn in Las Vegas? I tweeted out your article, but you tell us. It was very interesting weekend. I think what struck me the most is that there is a lot of consideration now and very open public consideration of whether or not they want, whether or not Republican activists and donors, but not just donors, but activists, people who knock on doors, all of that stuff. Want Donald Trump to continue to be the titular head of the party. He's obviously the FrontRunner for the 2024 nomination having announced he's a former president. He's got a very strong relationship with the Republican base. But after three consecutive electoral defeats, particularly this last one stinging because of how it unfolded and the opportunities that were there for Republicans, there was just a lot of talk about wanting fresh leadership continue the former president's policies by and large, but somebody fresh. I got that. Not just Rome Republicans who want to take his place, like Mike Pompeo, Mike Pence, Chris Christie, Nikki Haley. I talked to a number of Republicans, not Haley, but a number of the names that I just listed. But also just talking to the activists that were there. And I think people need to keep in mind the Republican Jewish coalition initially skeptical of Trump in the 2016 campaign really warm to him quite immensely because his record in the Middle East and as it relates to Israel and Iran and everything else in that region of the world was stellar from their point of view and very accomplished from their point of view. So it's not like, well, they never really liked them anyway. If you became a fan favorite.

How Could Florida Count Votes Faster Than Nevada and Arizona?
"And I want to talk about why I'm so annoyed and aggravated and really downright enraged. It's 22 million people here in Florida. 7 million people in Arizona. Harry Arizona. What the hell is wrong with you? Pardon my language. I don't feel too good. 7 million people in Arizona, more than three times that in Florida, and somehow Florida is able to count the ballots, short them all out, tabulate them and make an announcement. Oh, on election night. How is that? Who is that? Don't tell me it's because it wasn't that close in Florida. You mean if it's close, it takes longer to count the ballots? Oh, that's real reassuring. That's real reassuring. Well, if it's not close, we don't really count that carefully. Either count the ballots or you don't. Hey Maricopa County, what's wrong with you?

AJ's Initial Thoughts on Election Night 2020
"I mean, who would have thought? We'd ever miss hanging chads. So this show is a combination of famous bits and politics is a bitch. I can't believe we have to go to bed. It's 1 o'clock in the morning here in Las Vegas. My throat is horse from screaming at the TV, screaming at Donna brazile, Chris Wallace, Jake tapper, a number of other assholes that I just can't John Roberts. I can't say. And some fucking boring woman, they put on the Fox News channel, along with Martha McCallum, who's the wolf in sheep's clothing and Brett Bayer who, listen, he has his one hour time slot on Fox that's the most boring fucking show, you ever want to see. You know, I know he's steady Eddie, but he has no panache, no pizazz, the team that Fox put together to bring us this election night special, the biggest election of our generation. What a fucking dud, so I'm a horse. And I'm a little worse for wear, but this is an embarrassment. Not to mention there was some very dubious behavior. If not criminal behavior, and we're going to find out in the ensuing days, you know, we heard for a while that Pennsylvania was going to be a pain in the ass. But did we expect it to be this fucking annoying? you guys lock up and go home? What kind of fucking union is this? Are you kidding me? The presidential election hangs in the balance and you're going home. Did we expect Arizona to apparently apparently I should say flip like we're being told it flip? Is this the ghost of John McCain sticking up Trump's asshole? Sure seems that way if the numbers hold up. Wisconsin we don't know yet. Michigan, we don't know yet. And the Secretary of State and Pennsylvania said they could be counting ballots till Friday.

Is Trump Plotting a 2024 Return to the White House?
"The former wonder if not talk about what we expected him to talk about last night. Do you think he's reassessing in 2024 plans right now? Well, I think that in any normal universe, the idea that you're going to announce on the heels of an election like this, where the candidates you pushed and the messaging that you helped influence fell flat. That's really something to do and the idea that Republicans other Republicans interested in The White House and you know them you and you know that they want it would just simply step aside or step gingerly after. I don't even know what to call it. That would make absolutely zero sense. I can't wait to hear seeing what I hear and learn at the Republican Jewish coalition conference in Las Vegas at the end of next week because a good dozen of them are going to be there. Trump will not. And there is a lot of reassessing that needs to happen.

"Because <hes> they're really supportive of vaccines and they had already had a policy in place that they're either acquiring vaccines or regular testing for their own teams and they were encouraging their members to do the same thing. But they don't like biden's mandate because they didn't want this to come from the president. They don't like the precedent that it sets. And so that's the concern. There is that you know. Maybe i would've gotten here on my own but i. I don't want you to tell me what to do. And and there's a lot of concern that it could really spark some backlash because of that. I want to talk a bit about the bigger picture of all of this. Because in your story you write that vegas is a case study and just how difficult it will be to fully reopen america's services sector. You also noted that the las vegas strip supports half of nevada's economy which i didn't know i found kind of wild reading that. But can you tell me why we should all be watching. What's happening in las vegas right now. I think there's two main reasons why the story is really important and one is for the state of nevada. That new as you said. I was also surprised to hear that the strip which is four miles long actually supports half of the state's economy and that's indirectly You know it's about a quarter to a third directly. <hes> supports the state economy and then indirectly as well because everyone who's employed on the strip than goes and spends money elsewhere where whatever it may be and so this is a hugely important thing for the state and new. They need to be able to get back up and running. Someone described it to me as you know. It's a city in the business of bringing people together. Someone else said we are visitors. Our economic recovery is directly tied to our public health recovery. We can't get back to normal and get back to thriving and welcome people back in unless we get the virus under control here but the bigger reason is that there's some real national implications or some lessons that we can learn at least nationally as well because even though las vegas is really the most striking example because it's so dependent on impersonality every city in the country to some extent is going to be grappling with how to reopen our in-person sectors are services sectors and services make up two-thirds of the us economy. And so if we can't figure out how to reopen them and get them thriving in person and having it so that you know people are safe and just as importantly are almost as importantly people feel safe and are comfortable spending their money that way if we can't figure out how to do that then it's going to be halted economic recovery and it could drag on for quite a long time before we can really get back to normal megan casella big so much for talking with me things that mr have also today the homeland security chief of staff is resigning karyn olympic announced on monday that she plans to leave for new undisclosed opportunity at the end of the month.

They know that this is what they need to do. They need to get this scene And so at this point. I mean you know i. I asked everyone i met. Oh is this the las vegas that you know. How are things going. 'cause it's not dead you know. There's there's definitely people there But you know one uber driver said. Oh it's limping along or someone else. It's you know there's people here but it's not really vegas. It's not the same. The entire state is back under an indoor mouse mandate They just has been for a little while now because it was based on how but the level of transmission was per county to vegas has had that indoor mass mandate back for a while. There's a lot of discussion a lot of whispered voices of are we gonna shut down again. you know. Are we going to go back to social distancing inside restaurants and putting the plexiglas walls backup at the blackjack tables in the casinos and all of that. so far. that's not in place But there's a lot of fear that it that it could be If things keep trending in the wrong direction and so you know it's really stuck in this. Limbo of people are just searching for anything they can try to do to improve things to get more people vaccinated to have the cases. Drop down a little bit more And they really. Are you know because they're so dependent on their visitors. I think it seems to me. They're a little bit on the forefront across the country of starting to require vaccines even before president biden's mandate last week That has yet to fully come out and take effect but we're already seeing big casinos and the football stadium and the nfl teams start to require vaccines and some of the big conventions as well. So they're really on the forefront of recognizing that if they want to get back to what what they do best and bringing people together that that looks like at this point possibly the only path forward. It's interesting reading your story. And seeing how vegas seems to have some lessons learned from when they started to bounce back earlier this year without widespread vaccination and as a result vid bounced back with force to. You mentioned. all. These places now pushing for vaccinations but in your reporting you also looked at how nevada is a state with big libertarian streak. How las vegas mayor has continually downplayed the dangers of the pandemic and even a paramedic distributing vaccines describe nevada to you as quote a. Don't tell me what to do. State i mean. What sort of reality are you seeing. Play out there given all that. it's so interesting. Because you know while the people who are most in support of vaccines wanna see these mandates take effect and they say. This is the only way forward. There's a lot of concern that we don't know exactly what that looks like in practice and we don't know if it's actually going to incite more backlash and when i was there there was actually a really big debate going on about whether you know know..

He's just like not really a big gambler. We had a really fun dinner out at this. Italian steakhouse i don't know why he now claims that he does not like vegas. Maybe doesn't like people you know. He wants people to be on their best behavior. And it's sin city baby and there's no. There's no rules yeah. I think it's the crowds and i get it. You know the crowds but for me. I love the people watching. I wonder now though. Since post pandemic if i would feel differently because have become a slight A little bit of an agoraphobia. Yeah we all i think. We're all venturing into territory of fearing people places and things. Yeah and we'll get past that. I think i asked well. Vegas would be the ultimate ripping of the band aid. Because that's what you get when you go there people places and things. Yeah yeah so. This honeymoon is not an amanda line. Matt gourley honeymoon. This is an amanda lund. And let's say more girly okay. And i'm imagining more has kind of longer hair. Does he have longer hearing maybe glasses. Yeah and he works at patagonia. Okay wow and he has a very soft voice. he's got a soft voice but he's let's just say he's he's more excited about vegas than the real macaroni. So more more gourlay is he. He likes to party maybe a little bit and he's he also likes adventure but he's he's he's willing he says you know what honey. He's the type of guy that he doesn't want to be involved in the planning of the honeymoon. He just he just hands me the reins and says whatever makes you happy. No matter what do you know what i mean like. You'll just be like we're going here and it'll be like great. I can't wait. Yeah exactly so so.

You're gonna find on the drive from la or long beach to vegas and these are must stops for me so this is a big also influence in my vegas. Life is my sister. Sarah who loves to gamble and she'll go to vegas she stays downtown. She gets comped. She'll stay at the d sometimes the golden nugget which are on the free fremont street. Which is old school. Vegas so on the drive to vegas first off. You gotta stop at peggy. Sue's fifth nineteen fifties diner. I've never stayed gone here. Is it quickly. it's amazing. It's this kitschy little fifties diner. It's probably maybe like an hour outside of vegas or so maybe a little bit further but you go. You get a milkshake You get a tuna mel and got this big gift store. That also has ice cream. You buy some weird like you know area fifty one stuff and some sunglasses or something but it's just for me it's iconic like growing up. We used to always buy one of the cool milkshake glasses. That say peggy sues on him and we had a collection of those at home. So that's just like that's just a lund thing. Okay sure now on the second. Step once you cross into nevada your now in vegas on your way and you guys stop for a drink and maybe an app at the pepper mill. Okay now this is an old one of the oldest like old school places. Right it is. It's old school vegas. It's a total dive. It's a restaurant bar and of course you can gamble there you'll know it because it's all neon the neon pepper mill lights are connick. And it's off the strip but when you walk in. It's this hot pink and purple and blue up. Let vegas paradise. There's these big huge fake trees that grow through it and the sunken seating areas with like blue fire pits. And just so you can see here. Let me pull up some of the drinks that you're going to get at the pepper mellon excited for this. So this is great. This is very it's very neon it's very black let ooh they've got a tiki tiki drinks. Here they've got one to eat drink where it looks like an up like a. There's a can of beer in it. Yes that's the corn corn corona rita our signature margarita with an upside down corona beer. And then this key lime pie. Martini sounds good with vanilla vodka. Midori melanin pineapple juice shaking whip cream and roomed with graham cracker crust. Whoa whoa whoa. Whoa you okay. So this is sort of old school. Og las vegas just a couple of hot tips for y'all who wanna head out there at some point now i'm going. It has a honeymoon. Some classes ended up a bit. And i'm staying at the venetian. Wow okay wow. This is gorgeous. So now you've gotten yourself a one bedroom of grand one bedroom suite. I have so. The venetian is an iconic. Vegas hotel reason why i chose. The venetian was based on the room. Because i was looking at some of the sweets. Obviously i want a sweet. If you go in the off season within my budget you can get a really nice sweet now us. Yeah it's venetian grand one bedroom suite. The prices are varying as we mentioned in the intro like in the off season mid week for a night you can get this week for under two hundred dollars He pulled peak weekend. You're looking at over thousand. So i'm saying you know somewhere in between that it's going to round out about five hundred and a little bit from their website. This is a truly plush sprawling suite with everything you need for the perfect. Stay at a world class resort. You'll love semi-formal dining room jetted tub. A large separate glass shower with two showerheads. There's also a full bar with seating area and a high definite definition. tv stocked refreshment center. So this is a very. It's the walls or sort of. I recall them tope with accents of baby blue. A beautiful european. it looks very european. You're you you you you might as well be in dare. I say venice italy. It is you know. It's you've stepped out of vegas and you've use a very homey comfortable beautiful vibe and this is where after you know all the crazy stuff. I'm going to get up to in vegas. This is where. I wanna lay my head at night. Sure okay so of course iconic in vegas what do you do dinner. And a show amanda. Where do we have this. I have a feeling we have the exact same.

The beatles cirque du soleil show. We have this same. We have years balaj. yo. I said that's going to be the only difference. No but i listen. I could possibly be the same exact trip. But i think the probably will because i have to go on this day trip so yeah okay so anyway high. Of course. I considered bruno mars. Who is starting residency. Oh you're kidding. Yes and i think he'd be so fun to see of course. Selene who. I've never seen in vegas. I'll lean i'm heading for. His birthday is incredible. It was incredible. She's saying with frank sinatra.
