This is a space that has more room to run, particularly given everything we know about how the global economy has kind of changed because of the pandemic. Yeah, well, I think that China X is still very expensive. Even though you know many of the stars in the China exports to think of a new direction for China's politics. Also, China Son of growth driven by technology innovation strategy, But you know, because of that, it is already reflected in many off China expels that expensive.

Think it hear any of this pigs in a blanket fry them like bacon. You ever think that you would hear of a a scandal of such monumental proportions that There's no other way to describe it, except that you had a few people. Very powerful positions. Abusing their power protecting one presidential candidate over another. And then literally knowingly spying on that other campaign and then transition team deep into the president's because that's what had happened. What were all the FISA application warrants all about? They were all about They're all the bulk of the information to quote House Intel committee. And of course, the deputy FBI director McCabe. You don't have the dirty dossier. Russian disinformation we now know paid for by Hillary Clinton funneled money through Perkins Kui. Christopher Steele. You don't You don't have any of those warrants. And there were all warned, and we now know that even in the first Briefing that took place with the FBI. They sent in somebody from Operation Cross Fire Hurricane Operation. What is it razor back to get General Flynn? Now we're finding out that way, learned recently that on January of 2017 Christopher Seals sub source member, James Comey to ready signed through two of the warrants, even though he's worn numerous times before the 1st 1 It's not verifiable, Ah steel at a political agenda Hillary paid for it. Says at the top of a FISA application verified. Get him verify anything didn't care to And the sub source said that you kidding with this was like part talk. What are you talking about? Now we're finding out that the steel primary source apparently is now. The focus is now on a think tank tied to Hillary Clinton and Biden. Brookings Institute. If you look at John Solomon's piece And apparently the revelation that his primary sub source for this dirty Russian disinformation dossier was an American resident tied to this think tank close to the Obama administration and Clinton and apparently triggered the entire new investigative interest. Ah, long story. Get this, Igor. Then check O is his name apparently identified a steel sub source reported by really clear investigations, then confirmed by his lawyer to The New York Times, meaning that steals dossier. Relied on someone who's not even based in Russia. Despite claims to the contrary by the FBI. Least two of the foreign the FISA warrant applications targeting Trump and Carter Page. The FBI referred to the primary sub source as truthful and cooperative and Russian based I was in Michael Inspector Michael Horowitz is Inspector general's his report last December. This guy worked for several years until 2010 of Brookings familiar to many in the Obama administration and the one key witness in the impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump. Fiona Hill, Russian expert and a C impeachment witness against Trump worked at that institute author The paper with Darren Chico's prior prior to the dossier being assembled according to really clear investigations and politics. Condition by the way. Ah, you got all these other new details emerging Lindsey Graham this weekend, saying the FBI lied. Their ass is off to Congress about the steel dossier. Lindsey Graham is now bringing in. I believe tomorrow is going to bring in a Sally Yates has all list of questions for her. And a preview of what's happening. We're finally getting to the bottom of it. The quiet I don't know when the Durham report is coming sooner. Hopefully then later Because and then all these other people are going to be brought in as well, including Comey. McCabe struck page. A lot of people to bring in here. I'd like to know what Obama knew, and Biden and I'd like everybody in that January 5th 2017 meeting in the Oval Office to talk about it. Joining us now is the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee. Devin Nunes. Devin Nunes told us the truth about Russia and Adam Schiff lied. We have now been able to put a timeline together is He kept secret Thes House Intelligence Committee meetings and and when they were interviewing with us is And witnesses were saying one thing. And Adam Schiff was out there lying to the press and say, no, just the opposite. Unbelievable, Congressman. Great to have you tell us about the secret source for the steel dossier. Well, Sean, this story continues to get bigger and this investigation continues to broaden. So we've been looking at the source for a long time. We were led to believe that this was that This was a Russian So we had our sights set on three Russians that we were trying to find and lo and behold, it ends up, but this guy's not a Russian at all. He was born in Russia. But as you said he was an American. Resident now, you know why is this important? I think you have to kind of look at this in a few different, different ways. But This was designed by the Clinton campaign and their dirty operatives. To be in October. Surprise dirty trick they were trying to tie trump with dirty business deals and that he would be too weak on Putin. Don't know why they scheme that up, But they had this fantasies with blend Simpson infusion GPS, and now it appears like it's the Brookings Institute. Was also heavily involved in this Then, obviously they go after Carter Page in October of 16. Well, nothing comes of it. And then Lo and behold, the impossible happens..

"Importantly, that's a myth only being spread in Washington. I mean, I got to tell you, you did. The Cold War happened happened that Does the sun come up every day? There's so disconnected from the truth that I really have to question their sanity. At some point, Jerry Nadler is another one. Who's Sanity has to be called into question because this is just his people are completely insane. And the news me again. 59 police officers injured and 47 people arrested and the local station in Seattle says Seattle protests remain peaceful after 47 arrested is just amazing. Just great stuff and funny. Left wing radio host in Seattle. He's an ESPN sports radio host will get this clown. Hey, he was mocking President Trump for talking about the violence in Seattle until the violence reached those idiots front door. They burned his local Starbucks and shocked and looted another. Then now he wants to buy a gun to protect his cat. Because And whatever he's they're all they're all mental cases. Just just extraordinary, extraordinary stuff. And on the I've got article after article here. I'm not sure how much I could get to study. I was off all week last week, so I've got a lot of stuff stacked up here. The lawsuit filed by at Fox News, filed by a Democrat pundit with like rubber face What's her name? Kathy, a route She's suing Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity and not tell you they came out with a response. Tucker Carlson's people did. And it's almost hilarious. That almost reads like a comedy. Because this Kathy Aru woman is apparently also just mentally unstable and has filed this insane lawsuit filled with falsehoods. Better so clearly and obviously On easily demonstrated at false that it's just it should be laughed out. She should go away with her tail between her legs and stop bothering people again. I did mention that Louie Gohmert went after the Democrats on the floor of the House of Representatives with a little bit of a history lesson, saying that if you're going canceled culture in order for cancel culture to be complete, Really, What we've got to do is cancel the Democrat Party. Also a movement. And my friend Jenny sent this morning along a nice list of the many, many things named for the former Klansman Robert Byrd, the Democrat senator from from West Virginia. And there's so many things named after him. You really can't even get them all in one email can't get them all in one press release or one article, But it's time to start getting rid of all that. And also, the Russell Senate office building has to be renamed for Hiram Revels. The first African American to serve in the Senate. How hard is this? Really? The Republicans at work five days a week? You guys do anything up there on Capitol? Anything at all? I'm just curious. I'd liketo I'd like to see whether you're doing anything and also a sports. I don't know if you saw this. I was watching a protest on television the other night, and there were a lot of people are there in uniform in there kneeling and the chains and there was all kinds of protests and going on. Everybody was very sad. And then strangely at this protest of baseball game broke out, and I was confused. By the way. Why are these guys suddenly these protesters suddenly hitting a baseball around with bats and It turns out that Major league Baseball is part of the protest movement now and it's It's really tragic. They poison everything with the toxins of politics and just everything you name it from. Goya beans, two straws, toe baseball toe. Basketball. There was kind of a funny moment. Also, it is. It doesn't qualify as a sports moment when it's the Washington, D. C. Women's professional basketball team, The Washington Mystics They play in kind of a high school arena or something in Southeast D. C. And nobody goes to their games. And they walked off for the national anthem the other day in major league baseball. One player decided not 10 deals for the national anthem, and it's like the old Kurt Vonnegut thing. The stain man to an insane society must appear in ST And so one major league baseball players stood through the anthem instead of kneeling during a protest period. Orchestrated protest period now because of the threat of violence is the actual reason and he's the villain. But the Washington will get to that. The Washington Mystics, They walked out the whole team, they walked out of the national anthem. Fortunately, though, the stands were empty. And that's not because of the code virus. That's because the stands are always empty for Washington Mystics games. They didn't have to change anything. It's not like ticket sales went down just just that They walked off. And then they came back. And nobody noticed. And nobody cared because they're the Washington Mystics and and face it. Just roll up your tent and go home. You're a joke. You're you're a mockery of Ah scam of Sam and Lindsey Graham. Some good stuff from Lindsey Graham. And also from Devin Nunes over the weekend in the What is it? Dan? Bongino tweets out every day, he tweets out the date I love Dan Bongino he treated today is July 27th and the Obama administration was the most corrupt administration in U. S history. Something like that words to that effect, and it's certainly true. It's obviously true. The biggest political scandal in the history of the country has gone I was going to say has gone uncovered, but that's not true. It has been actively covered up by the New York Times and CNN and the individuals at these organizations and not just there, but the other fake news organizations to but Lindsey Graham came out. Talking about the liars at the FBI and James Comey and the criminals running the FBI criminals running the FBI and during Obama and engaged in they engaged in all kinds of criminal activity from James Comey on down in a penitentiary face Brandon as well.

"Log on Earth with underage underage women on that island, so fuel our card spends his career Xena. But the career was trying to explain away Bill clips behavior. Now he's trying to say Donald Trump is not worthy of debating. 2020 comes into focus buying will run from Trump. He's not campaigning and possibly not even debating while stealing many of his themes, including Bring Bring America Back theme in Ohio. Meanwhile, many in his party of panicking because he can't seem to pick a number too. I'll tell you how Trump plans to fight through it. So why would they be panicking Because they're old, beating up on each other Republicans to take some shots of Karen Bass because he seems to love Cuba pro Communist in her twenties, praising him in his death. Fidel Castro. Of course, I shouldn't should know that, uh and then say, Well, I apologize. Maybe I shouldn't have said that Karen Bass without any discernible convert credits. Com Ela Harris is being hit left and right, well being backed by a famous attorney, and then you have, of course, people going after Harris and then people going after Bass. On the left because they want the spot. Like Elizabeth Warren, for example, and it's getting a sense of panic because Joe Biden won't actually make a decision. The other people that are in contention. Tammy Duckworth's Who've Chris Wallace forgot to ask if you would take down. Uh, if you would take down the George Washington statuettes you indicated earlier last month. Which is kind of interesting to fight for the country to which he did. Which is extraordinary, Uh, chopper crash us both legs. He obviously is serving a country for 20 years. Doesn't not sure of George Washington statue should be up. So the other big story is the rescue package. The rescue packages $3 trillion if you don't have to save an economy, which is just reeling because we brought it to a halt. Can't seem to bring it back because this country still real with the virus given to us by China, So we have a rescue package. Okay, fine. They want to give money to the states. We do not want a bailout states on pension packages that they shouldn't have signed to begin with. They want to give everyone an extra $600 but we have restaurant tours in department store and retail stores. They cannot get employees because people are making more money with their unemployment and in the $600 then they would be if they work, so they are not working. It could have extended that package. But they didn't because Democrats did not want to do that, because it would have made you seem as though the Republicans were winning, even though they were getting what they wanted. Go figure. So they're going to go into negotiations that they want to get rid of the salt tax that allowed states and high tax areas to write off their state taxes. They want to put that back and give them that ability, nothing to do with the virus. They don't want to the payroll tax cut. That's fine. So the rescue package is really where it goes from here. Here is James Clyburn. When asked about the 600 hours being extended for a week, which they want while they negotiate a new package. This is what the leader said Cut 21. Why won't the Democrats in Congress agreed to a short term measure that that brings back this unemployment assistance? My men deal with those other issues later. What's your answer time? One week or is it six months or even 90 days? I really think Go and come people around this one week, one week, two weeks. This jerking people around is not the way we all could be conducted ourselves as custodians of this democracy of ours. It is. It's the most ridiculous, stupid answer. You've ever heard your life. What an insult! The follower of his was jerking people around by having another week to negotiate. They negotiated on Saturday. You didn't go even though you're a part of leadership. You went home so You say, stop jerking people around because we don't really believe. I don't believe the $600 is good Move, Lindsey Graham said it is goingto press. The unemployed, uh, is going to keep the employment numbers higher than they have to be. Everybody knows you lost jobs through no fault beyond we get it. 2008 was a different story. This is told, by the way, there was a lot of innocent victims there, too. But this is no one's problem except China. Maybe we could've won sooner. Maybe Nancy Pelosi couldn't walk through Chinatown may be the mayor of New York City shouldn't have said We have to celebrate for the Chinese because they can't I would have probably known it was in Europe in December. When they blitz and came here is tourists would helped So Steve Mnuchin negotiating with Nancy Pelosi, and then Mark Meadows going to bat, they will kind of optimistic going to bat for the president of states. So Mark Meadows. Is an extremely strong surrogate is extremely aggressive. He was very strong surrogate when he was just a congressman in North Carolina. He was very strong again. But he came out basically said I am not ready to cut a deal. We're not that close cut 19 Senator Schumer, the Democratic leader, said it was the best discussions we've had so far. Would you put it that way? Well, I would characterize it that way. But we still have a long ways to go. I can tell you that we spent the last three days actually last four days. Trying to get to some kind of consensus, at least to start negotiating. Yesterday was A step in the right direction. Our staffs are actually working today. We'll be meeting again tomorrow, but I'm not optimistic that there will be a solution in the very near term. We'll say we're going to have in a week. We'll see what can get done. If something's going to get done. It should get done quick because there's On this very pain that people who could be going through nobody like spelling spending a trillion dollars on overdraft, but we don't really have a choice.

And I said why you wrong on everything else, and it got a laugh out of the room, but it wasn't designed for laugh it just as you know if we started that fundamental level.

"But at the end of the day there was extreme force used in a situation that it didn't offer at that point, and that's the point that we're addressing, so there's going to be all these other discussions that are happening on the periphery. We just need to deal with this moment and I heard you know a police officer earlier and he was saying. You know we're going to study this video, not the way the public is watching it. We're GONNA. Watch it frame by frame by frame. Frame by frame, and that's how this is going to be played out and examined, and that's where the real analysis will come from. What's happening now has nothing to do with George Floyd. This is all about you know the ANTIFA movement and furthering an agenda. You know the people that were protesting George Floyd were doing a peacefully. They were listening to police officers. They were trying to find common ground, and when this all started, there wasn't a single person that was out there. That thought that this was okay, so it's like we're we all rear. A number of the other officers that were minority on the scene. Yes, there were there were. There were out. We learn through everything now through the prism of identity politics, every read breaks down Okay men women African American Hispanic American Asian American White Americans. They break everything down. Demographically. We you know. And, I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that. Because that's the way it's always been done in terms of polling, but at some point this country's got to get along the you know the idea that Antifa and now we know with bar and his announcement earlier. They're investigating whether and James O'Keefe his undercover video couldn't be more timely. Whether ANTIFA linked agitators or behind a lot of what's going on with these riots. I mean these videos of these bricks just happened to be staged where they expect the protests going to be in some cities. More than coincidental to me trace. Gallagher broke that report on Fox. News, that's a little scary. Black lives matter saying that we're GONNA arm ourselves and we're gonNA police, our own communities and Democrats offering support to this idea of of not having police They're the first line of defense. Let's see here. Here's the bigger issue right, so we talked about this earlier. The Washington Times released that piece were. They explained that they have all of this evidence. That shows that for months now and FA has been planning this uprising against what we consider. You know our society, you know. Know Mores norms. They just want to break out. They WANNA fight. What we call America has nothing to do with anything. Unfortunately, this terrible situation with George Floyd happening just coincided with their previously determined and planned activities so now all of these things are gelling together, and they can use this as a stepping platform so the brick showing up the milk, showing up the bag showing up, you know all of these cryptic and encrypted means of communication being able to circumvent police it. This is not an accident. This is planned one hundred percent, and then everyone gets lumped together because. People, that are peaceful protesters, we celebrate freedom of speech. Apiece protesters because they don't have permits there in the middle of the street. I cannot get home to my child because you're in. America on the sidewalk your laugh. Protesters on the sidewalk. If you have a permit to take up the street that my tax dollars go to by all means getting the street because he. For my license before I'm giving my permission to have a protest for hours and hours..

"Don't think him saying that he respects. His flag is saying that he doesn't care about the injustices that have happened in American history. It means that the flag means X. to him, but he still respects what it means to somebody else. What's happening now is that there's just no. No civil discourse, no respect. There's no understanding of where another person's perspective can come from. Everybody's on tilt. They're so ready to react and to completely annihilate you. If you do not completely agree with them, and that's not what America is.

My teammates, the city of New Orleans, the black community, the NFL community in anyone. I might have hurt. In an attempt to talk about respect, unity, solidarity centered around the American flag, the National Anthem I made comments that were insensitive, completely missed the mark on the issues that we are facing right now as a country. They lacked awareness of any type of compassion or empathy. Instead those words have become divisive hurtful and have misled people into believing that somehow I am an enemy. Is could not be further from the truth that not an accurate reflection of my heart or my character.

For this country during World War Two one in the army, one in the Marine Corps both risking their lives to protect our country, and trying to make our country in this world, a better place so every time I stand with my hand over my heart, looking at the flag and singing the national anthem.

"I'm Jonathan Kaye. Part and this is Cape Up. When I was in South Carolina in February for the Democratic primary I sat down with Jamie Harrison. He's the former chairman of the State's Democratic Party. The first African American to hold the post and now he's vying to become the Palmetto sleet second black sitting. Us senator by running against incumbent. Republican Senator Lindsey. Graham Harrison has an incredible bio one. That took him from being so poor. He ate cereal with water to being a graduate of Yale and Georgetown Law school his race to defeat. Graham has gone from improbable to possible since we talked. Harrison's first quarter fundraising broke state records and he's within striking distance of overtaking. The man folks once revered. Here's what he said happened at Focus Group in Charleston and one woman. Said said to the moderator. She said it and I'm bothered. By the fact that Lindsey Graham did not stand up for his friend John McCain and she said if he won't stand up for his best friend. What would do for me here? Harrison explain how that sentiment could be his route to victory over Lindsey Graham right now Jamie Harrison. Thank you very much for being on the PODCAST. Thank you Jonathan. I appreciate it so I to get into to who you are and when you look at your biography it's gripping in its gripping in its deprivation and in its success and start with the dipper the tough early years and there one line in your bio that just grabbed me and I read it several times a simple line and it was Were you said you remember eating cereal with water? Because you couldn't afford milk. Listen when I tell folks that we it was difficult and hard it was The that particular situation there are a number of occasions. Where you we go to fridge. Go get some milk. I love fruity pebbles. I also and and and my grandma would You know sometimes. She wouldn't be at home because she's working and it wouldn't be milk and so you have to put water in it I there were times Jonathan when you know my grandfather who were construction would get up in the morning needed to go to work. And the Goethe's car truck in the gas on empty in In so you know. I'm helping him trying to looking through couch cushions Looking for quarter nickel dime so he just get enough. You know at that time Gal. Gas was less than a dollar Just enough to Get to work and back and and because he needed to go to work we we had to have him go to work. It wasn't like he was going. He was on salary. Who's GONNA I mean We were we were Every Nickel County In our household himself you lived with your grandparents. Because your your mom had you when she was sixteen yes she. She had me when she was sixteen years old. And we. My mom and I both live with my grandparents for awhile and then my mom decided She got a job and got a house and moved out until then I stayed with her for a while and then she got laid off at her job and couldn't find anything here in South Carolina so she decided to go to Atlanta and When she decided to go to Atlanta the the agreement was that she would go find a job. Kind of get situated. I would see here with my grandparents until that happened but You know time pass. My mom did eventually situated. But I didn't WanNa leave my grandparents and it's because my grandparents and I had sort of a symbiotic relationship It got to the point where I feel obligated like I took care of them and they took care of me They didn't have a whole lot of education. My grandmother had an eighth grade education because she dropped out of school to pick cotton and then worked in textile insurance she did. Domestic were and my grandfather had a fourth grade education. He Stop School. He worked at a dairy and then he did construction. Most of his life up until he got diabetes but because they didn't have a lot of education and you know I was a kid. Who's the I did well in school even early on I was reading above my reading. Level you know early on and so Bills would come into the house and it was my job to read them to tell my grandparents what it was now the context for what? I was reading. It had no idea what clue was but That's what I read. And so but at the same time they took care of me they made sure I had my clothes my food and and took me to all the little things that I wanted to do. And so we had a very very close bond and in some ways my grandparents And I were is sort of a second set of parents in essence and But due to remarkable people one really horrible thing that happened was that their house was sold out from under actually taken away from them. Talk about what happened in that. So you know when I was this is when I was in Middle School Mike Grimm so the House that I was born in my grandparents decided to sell. 'em Uh my grandma was just had her heart set on a mobile home in this. When you know mobile homes are eight. They were coming out in their fancy and they had like the Jacuzzi Tub and all this other stuff even though we now know it as an investment is not something that you really want to invest. Because it didn't build any equity in thing so but nonetheless they went and they decide to get a mobile home so they took the money that a guy from the house they went to this mobile home manufacturing place and they bought one But they had to meet mortgage payments. Just like you know you would do on a house and so my The Guy who was there at the at the place he basically told my grandparents. Okay every month you bring your your payment to me and I will send it in to the And so they decide to do that. And so what you say is bring your money order because my grandfather always would go to post office and You get his paycheck. Get a cash. Go to the post office. Get a money order. My grandma would take the money order to the The Guy and he said well I'll feel it out for you so I can put all the information on it right and they did it for months and then they started getting letters that said you know Harrison. We haven't receive your payments allied and he took the my grandma and I would take a ladder to the guy and said I'll call them right now and find out what's going on. There's something wrong with their computer systems. Or whatever when on for a few more months then finally. It was a knock on the door. It was a sheriff in an. He's said Mr Miss Hairs. I'm to tell you but The bank is foreclosed on your home. And you're going to have you have until this time to move out. And they were devastated. Grandfather never really cried much had never saw. He's one of those you lose. All southern men just tough Grizzle Digest. It never cried and but that was one of the first times I saw my grandfather cry Because he would. He always believed in being diligent with his bills because his his father always told me to do that. We will. You always pay your bills and So we were. We were stuck on sleeping on couches and spare beds of friends and You know aunts cousins for a few months until my My grandma and you know as luck would have it. My grandfather also lost his job that the guy who ran the construction company rain for got ill and so they had to lay off all the folks on the companies and my grandfather also lost his job right around the same time and so finally we found this little place. Six forty four Green Street in Orangeburg. it was an a not a duplex triplex. Or something like that. And we had this one. Little two bedroom on the in and In my launch video. There's a picture of me walking in front of it. I mean it was didn't having the air conditioning Those little small cramp thing and But that's where we live for an all number of

I mean if I'd done that many years ago I'd had less trouble than one I've had but I mean it's it's to the point now too where you have to be doing what the doctors and the experts are saying to do what I found and you always give a shout out to anything that comes from South Carolina. 'cause it's where you are from. Did you hear Lindsey Graham yesterday when he was on the news where he said that if they did not pass this bill for nothing? It's two trillion dollars as the stimulus that he was going to go to the House on the floor and he was going to demand that the that the country stop paying everyone in the Senate and in the House and in the Congress to shut off their benefits and their pay until they could do their job. It's time to come to get time to together and you don't get to sit here at a time of crisis start negotiating for something that you couldn't get pushed through to begin with. But when I was laying in the bed listening to him I was like way to go. Lindsay is so true because it is an I do believe this is the Good Lord. That is saying okay. I put pebbles in your path and you refuse to look at it so now. I'M GONNA put a boulder in your match right. You guys are GonNa have to work together. Put Your differences differences aside and let's kit this country running again and we don't have to be a Democrat or Republican. A A socialist libertarian to have compassion for our fellow man. It's right I mean. Politics should have no play in compassion right and just taking care of each other exactly and so you know it's been a this whole thing has been very eye opening to the point that you know when you look at where we are and how people are responding to things and what have you. I mean it's it's it's overwhelming it really is. I mean I was listening to the mayor of New York talking and he was calling out the federal government shocking shocking that we would be doing that but he was calling out the federal government and saying that okay mayor. The governor the governor. I'm sorry Governor Governor Cuomo and he was calling the federal government out and saying okay but where are these ventilators right? Where are these what he was saying was? Why can't we put the supplies where they are needed? Most exactly because his state has more cases than any any state in the United States and I completely agree with him. You know we have it. Why things sitting surplus when we get people needing it. It's crazy exactly and so you know it really is when I look at you know I was in the grocery store because I yes folks I went to a Publix and this little old lady was in there and she was looking for hot dog buns and I had. I had you know two packs of hot dog buns in my buggy. And because that's what Juliette told me to get and they didn't have any more hot dog buns. I don't even eat hotdogs. People and I don't even care if how does our home Julia's the one who is determined. I guess she thinks that by eating a hotdog. It makes you more American. I've hated hotdog. My whole life and chloe likes them and again hurt her to have a hot dog once a month so. I had but you told me to get two bags to have overly so I gave this lady a thing of this hot dog binds and she said Oh honey. You're young. You probably have children. She says I can do without folks this little. Old Lady said she could do without. She was willing to sacrifice thinking that I had young children and that I needed a more than she. Well I didn't and I gave them to her. So you know it's those kind of things that there is still people out here that have compassion for their fellow human being yep and we need to continue more of that and we do need to continue more of that and I feel like that we in my family for the most part are very compassionate. People that we do have kind compassionate hearts but even I want us to be better absolutely we all can improve in

"Ooh Lindsey Graham is a power player after serving four terms in the House of Representatives. Graham one is first Senate race in two thousand and two. He was reelected in two thousand eight and again in twenty fourteen and after eighteen years in the Senate he looms large. He sits on the Appropriations Committee the Committee on Foreign Relations. And He's chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. He's visible joining me. Now Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina Senator. Welcome back to meet the press a fixture in the Sunday morning shows. Bram is also known for his friendship. With another prominent Republican the late Arizona Senator John McCain they were so close that McCain even had a nickname Graham he called him little jerk and McCain died in two thousand eighteen Graham delivered a heartfelt tribute on the Senate floor. He could be tough but the joy that you receive from being with him will sustain you for a lifetime and I am so lucky to have been in his presence. You told me that principle and compromise are not mutually exclusive and the foundation of a great person as well as right nation to John Routes. Who's now at camping? Democrat McCain was the ideal leader this is a man who serves country honorably he was a POW Vietnam War he went through Hale in. He had the I'll say ability but sometimes I think it was more of a gift. He had the the gift to reach across the aisle. He didn't care what other people felt. I don't say that he didn't care about your feelings or thoughts but if he is convictions in his passions knew that he was going down the right road he followed them. They'll let you know what kind of politician and leader he was. That's what I want to see. Return I want that passion.

"You. You must have tried to get Lindsey Graham to speak to you for this article are we did. Yeah this time around. His spokesperson said that you know he was thanked me for for reaching out but just said he was too busy. Yeah it would have been great to talk to him. I wonder why you think some of the sources you talked to wanted to speak with you. I mean you. You spoke to people who were quite close with Lindsey Graham including this law partner. Who worked with him for years still has a relationship with them? Why do you think they wanted to talk? I think a lot of these people WANNA get a message to him in a way the law partner. Certainly Larry Brandt Iran feels really confused and on some level betrayed. He told me that he's starting years defending Graham to people in South Carolina. People people writing them down saying You know this guy. I don't trust him. He's kind of squished. She goes back and forth and in Branson he's always defended him and now he feels like he can't defend him and there was a real real sense of betrayal. Among a lot of people everyone was was watching Graham carefully as he started to suddenly be. Trump's best buddy golfing with him making these obsequious speeches about him and people were just talking amongst themselves saying like okay. What's play? What's he doing is he? Trying to be angling angling for a cabinet position as you. Honeybee Attorney General. What's getting That's the that's the mystery so I think I think people wanted to just send him a message this fall. Aw Mark was watching Graham carefully to trying to figure this puzzle out. And that's when he saw this tape from a White House Event Linzie. I'd like to have you come up and say a few words. You've been terrific. Thank you Graham. told his own version of his first White House meeting with the president the one where trump hugged him asked for his. There's help after got beat like a dog which she likes hearing he called me over the White House and said I'd like you to help me love to help you be a great president. And he says I don't have your phone number and I said there's a reason for that and the crowd. You know laughs knowingly because of course during the campaign when when Graham was running against trump trump famously speech called him an idiot and then gave out his his telephone number at the televised rally and told his supporters. You should try this number and did and they did. And it's a funny. You know grams sort of tells how's the self deprecating story about it and says you know that was the highlight of my campaign. ha ha ha. The HALIDE AMAC campaign was when you gave out my phone number if I did as well as my phone number might have been in a different story. Then I went back and looked in in short. Actually what set trump off was graham attacking trump in the wake of trump's remarks about MC John McCain His his very infamous remarks. About how you you know. He prefers war heroes who aren't captured. And after trump said that you know Graham went on television and basically said there's no way the American people will elect this guy he's completely unfit in. And that's what trump was responding to and so it's it's really interesting that now he's now it's a joke doc and defending John McCain. Yeah this docs thing that happened in the wake of his defensive John McCain his very noble defensive his is good friend one of his best friends is now a joke. And it's it's part of a a speech. He's giving to boost this president a speech which ended with him saying Dang. God bless you Mr President. You know when you re elected this.

"So so Lindsey Graham actually has another plan now I guess he's somebody got to him is that you you don't want to deep six isn't because all along the Republicans have been complaining you ever been fair to the minority you haven't given us a chance to do this or do that or or or call witnesses or do anything else and now Lindsey Graham's as yeah well it's a deep six it when we get control of no put your site on call witnesses eight five five two nine five sixty six hundred John in port Saint Lucie Florida hello John Hey Tom how are you today doing great what do you think good Hey so listen you know I'm a couple things I'm first of all I'm struck by the the hypocrisy or the the image just a muse by this whole thing that you know it and I've done this before I've met with with my senator staff on the business venture yeah down to DC you're going to sit down with your representative or your senator try calling them up maybe you have an a a meeting with your staff for however if you if you made a big campaign donation or you're going to well yeah well heeled yeah you will see your son were you will see a representative and if that's not corrupt if that's not a quid pro quo can you tell me what is that first of all and then and then the second thing is attached to that is that the same people are so morally outraged about what what trump allegedly did which by the way is still a ledge and beat they haven't even of proven that it was political if there was indeed it doesn't matter thing for by it doesn't matter who does it now that they're back the the the the well the boat was pre cast you've seen all the stories about there's there's a famous one The Washington Post today after president trump was inaugurated they said the impeachment effort is is started that was January of two thousand seventeen so this is this is not a surprise they just had to wait till they became the majority and I mean the history I deliver her problems to a seeker baccharis speaker here's to the yeah I think about think about some of the outcome because I I am convinced that this afternoon they'll vote yea let's impeach him I'm convinced next week I think it's going to be Wednesday looks like because I got to get out they they don't want to be sitting there working so this is a hurry up and impeach him things are treating it like it is Jay walking deal which I think it is but anyway they have think of think of if they go through this whole business and he is not convicted in the Senate so he's up for reelection will that hurt or help him when it comes to November of twenty twenty I thank you did get the it's a good question I think that the part of this whole thing is that they know trump is going to win and I think that they're using impeachment as a means to shorten his coattails and so that they can preserve their majority in the house all right women stand any damage that might be in the Senate let me it is solid but let me try a different way this is the I don't think this is possible but it's so it's it's a hypothetical question but what if he is convicted and thrown out of office now we've got vice president pence is the is the president that is step to be the president and he would be on the ballot I guess November twenty twenty then what would happen well if if they tried to throw large trump out of office I think you have a revolution the revolution be in November of twenty twenty right I know so many Democrats Tom that was trumped and what what he's been doing I I I and I'm too you know fortunately you got more money yeah but I don you gotta you gotta know that your circle of friends isn't necessarily the nation and right now it's it's a school it's a split country it's a split split it really is well I mean it in a very you know pop all county that I live in in in Florida that is that is ethnically diverse black Hispanic white let me tell you something it does so sometimes I seeing for support of trump since this whole impeachment hearing where I got people stopping me in parking lots are waiting second I trusted on my car so believable evidence out of the blue people whose ex blacks coming up yeah this is B. S. what they're doing to to to our president I got it so yeah I mean you know you know as far as I see the tea leaves I think the support is a lot deeper than that well I think we learned that we learned that in sixteen then we Hillary Hillary was going to win everybody was saying Hillary who's going to win and I had people calling their show from flyover country saying no there's a lot of everywhere I go.
"lindsey graham" Discussed on The Young Turks
"Hey guys you've heard of the young Turks podcast because you're listening to right now but make sure the proprio panel Giancarlo Franchesca great to see you all right so we got a big our as we always do big show is we always too little twisty twist though normally no conversation on the Friday show meaning we never talk no the last half hour that we normally do Monday through Thursdays an interview with that we call the conversation but we do have one today on Friday and this with bill mckibben so Ooh I think there's GonNa love that and what are you talking about you know Medicare for all sports oh totally watch minutes exciting take Tock Tick Tock they copied I was thinking I don't think that I'm GonNa Charge them anyways seriously we have a story about climate change in this hour John also puts on in the show Friday show and every time he does embrace me out in a cold sweat panic because the numbers are so bad were in so much trouble it's honestly it's way worse than I realized and I thought it was pretty bad so combination story today in the mckibben you'll see we we'll make sufficiently panic okay but speaking of panic donald trump should be panicking. That's where we're GONNA start with why would he panic Lindsey Graham on his side Oh that's where we shing story Lindsey Graham wants to prove donald trump but he's got his back or is it depends on what trump wants but look he's definitely in support of him and he had this legal maneuver that he was going to do to try to show that this entire impeachment process is pretty pointless you sure you impeach him in the House but he wanted to get all of the Republic hands on his side in the Senate to prove that this thing is going to die there so why even bother on Thursday he announced that he put forth a resolution condemning the house impeachment inquiry by mid afternoon when he announced it the resolution has been watered down to a plea for a different and more transparent process Now I want to give him a chance to explain sort of what he was thinking about here is this resolution puts the Senate on record condemning the House for the future the presidency we cannot allow future presidents in this president to be impeached based on inquiry in the House has never been voted upon that does not allow the president to confront the witnesses against him call witnesses on his behalf and cross examined people are in him of misdeeds all I'm asking is give Donald Trump the same rights as Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton had when it comes to impeachment and here's the point of the resolution any impeachment Vote based on this process to me is illegitimate is unconstitutional and should be dismissed in the Senate without a trial Yeah well that would be convenient because of course they don't have to go on the record in the trial what's interesting there is that again this whole strategy is not about actually trying to argue the Donald trump hasn't Broken any laws that what he did was acceptable it's all just the process is unfair and look at her they're having these depositions behind closed doors with Democrats and Republicans that sort of inconvenient let's ignore that and we just don't like that issue is the back ninety eight Lindsey Graham had a very different approach to how this process should be conducted back when it was a Democrat that was being impeached. I'm not here to tell you that Donald Trump's done nothing wrong I'm not here to tell you anything other than that the way they're going about it is really dangerous for the country the depositions I think will determine whether or not we go forward with hearings I think it's a very Mart thing to do is to depose these people and find out what they've got to say and not drag this thing out on necessarily so he was okay with it back in one thousand nine eight now I mean the thing is kind of pointless even play this because obviously he bit hypocritical and literally everything that he said back in the ninety s and it doesn't really seem to matter but let's just be clear Republicans refined with the way things were conducted back then they just don't happen to like find anything about Lindsey Graham is there was a moment last week with the serious stuff and the Kurds were it was like ooh comes Lindsey Graham growing a little bit of a backbone and that was just Bam thank you Ma'am done deal sanctions on on Turkey turns off Turkey like and we're back to where we were and everyone is just you know the the diamonds girl's best friend music video or whatever with airland monroe come of course of course of course does anyone with any real culture does John but like all Republicans are just like they're just like the rolling out every kind of red carpet and like handing out diamonds to trump whatever they can do here please sit on me like I'm just reminded of that scene and I think that's trump would be happy to be compared to Monroe well below most ladder amorous yeah that would yes that would be the best person he's we're gonNA okay so I dismissed the so-called subsidized things allegations whatever of the Republicans and then I want to talk about a larger picture so first of all as you saw with your own eyes there he thought secret depositions great back when he was doing impeachment of Bill Clinton now he doesn't as John pointed out so dismiss it this is it out of hand the media should dismiss it out of hand okay you're a liar let's move on Okay and then secondly there's no all my God would there well during the Clinton and Nixon things they had a boat to be in the proceedings now do you need no in fact a judge ruled today you do not need a vote it is not any part of the constitutional process it is it wasn't it federalist papers it's not historical it's not any lynching what would the point why are they saying that this is important other than a reason to discount it would be the purpose of the vote vote in the end roll it I think also I think it behooves them Republicans to slow roll this like I've been very concerned for of all year impeachment should have happened a while ago so glad it it is happening now but I do think that Republican strategy is to slow roll it focus on the process it's always been whether you know whether it's the Muller report whether it's whoever is leaking information it's always shooting the Messenger it's always the problem of process rather on the actual crime that was committed so look at the thing that I wanna cut through here is it doesn't matter what the Republican charges are because a if whatever one summer just flat out massive hypocrisies they don't care they don't care about it being true they don't care about it being consistent and if you if they were sufficiently embarrassed by their positions they just find new things to complain about so what matters the most is not that it is the Republicans efforts some muddy the water and and then okay but there are two other factors here so was the Democratic Party and unfortunately there really really bad at this so I was trying to somebody at a breakfast today who is really smart guy follows the news but it's not at all involved in politics he said to me at totally did I don't understand it seems like only the Republicans are making their points and so he's not like a diehard progressive or anything like that he's just like why is it that only the serving their points and I never hear the Democrats counter them he's like I happen to know the these points are not correct but I like what's going on here and that's the thing that Democrats are so bad so the Republicans rush to the media and go oh my God closed to regular people aren't long if that's true or historical or assistant etc just hearing Republicans yelling and then the third party in the media and the media then goes onto and partly guilty of doing it in this segment of having a debate because they brought it up about a nonsense issue what if they had said you know this is outrageous process obviously cannot be prosecuted because he was more than Jordan fifty bounds everybody knows that it's you know next was under two hundred and fifty thousand click was to forty nine and he does it right and the media is like all right let's move made of cheese or is it is it not pro cheese anti cheese I mean that's the thing is like the Our problem is that we we like to both sides it we want it to be open we want the media to be accessible to people but we have to keep restating the facts the facts here that this is it's a closed door hearing but it's not partisan meaning there are Republicans behind those closed doors they're not the brooks brothers who stormed the hearings the other day but there are Republicans in that hearings the idea that it's secret is wrong we have to keep on re saying that over and over again and and and especially and Lindsey Graham acknowledged back in the nineties this isn't the actual inquiry these are the initial depositions they're talking to these people to decide are they credible they need to be involved in the actual thing which will take place later on I mean we're we're way away from the actual trial we're not even at the judiciary committee yet there's just initial fact-finding with some of these witnesses being done by both Democrats and Republicans nothing controversial about that following rules that Republicans themselves set up exactly two big had to make clear yesterday right yeah and so key but I think there have been Democrats who are saying that but for sure they don't come out with the same fire they don't come out I mean it's funny because when I was I watched this the like the a House Republicans storm the hearings that reminded me the only time the Democrats had done something similar which was for healthcare like compared one is just fawn and show how loyal you are to this criminal president and the other is for healthcare like but anyway I'll just say that I think that Democrats don't often package their message in it has that fighting spirit so last things here on this topic so I mentioned it earlier today it just happened Chief Judge Barrel Howl of US District Court in Washington DC so you do not need a vote the impeachment inquiries that none of that is in any way required so there's a judge with a lengthy uh opinion stating the facts of the case so the Appeals Court in Greece with her which they unless there's stack with trump appointees will certainly agree with her because she's right about the facts she's right about the law and she also said the Democrats can get the grand jury testimony from the Molar case you don't have to Redo a year investigation and in fact it would be unfair to the president if there is exculpatory in for information there that he does not have access to because it's being hidden away ingrained testimony so the whole thing Graham says well he's not allowed to cross examine it was witnesses first of all as a political proceeding not a legal proceedings so it's not a normal criminal the second world that's not even true the actual trials happen happens in the Senate where they'll be able to cross examine everyone to no end so this is just the beginning of the inquiry just done in the exact rules that the Republicans laid out okay so that's the facts of the case but guys if you're saying all right look you're saying the Democrats very good at this and the media constantly debates everything fifty fifty we know okay so Jiang what's your constructive critique for those parties first of all the.

"lindsey graham" Discussed on The Daily
"From New York Times, I'm Michael Barr. This is the deal. Today two years ago, he called Donald Trump, a Kook a big crazy and unfit for office. Now, he lavishes praise on the president at every turn what happened to Lindsey Graham. It's Tuesday March fifth. I mean, you don't even know which way the wind is blowing with the sky. Well, I'm talking actually about Lindsey Graham. I don't know what happened to the Lindsey Graham that I knew because he hasn't been showing up lately seems to be adrift morally, politically, I think it's mystifying to a lot of people. It certainly miss defined to me what happened to Lindsey Graham, what happened to Lindsey Graham, Lindsey Graham, blah, what happened to Lindsey Graham. The thing about Lindsay Graham is is one of these figures in Washington that comes with kind of a non verbal reaction at this point. Mark Leyva veg wrote about Graham for the New York Times magazine, you mentioned his name anytime over the last six months to twelve months, and you get this combination. Grimness? Shrug follow up question. Yeah. What's going on? And in all the sort of Trump era Republican mysteries. When we ask ourselves. What happened to this person? Why is this person changing his or her mind so much now about Donald Trump Lindsey Graham, kind of is the? Signature mystery of the Trump era is far as what these conversions look like. Lindsey Graham grew up in a very small town in South Carolina. The town of central South Carolina and his parents owned a bar there called the sanitary cafe and they own it. But they lived in an apartment right behind the bar. The shared a restroom with the patrons of the bar. And he went from there is the first member of his family to go to college. His parents died when he was in his early twenties. He joined the military eventually got into politics, and then was elected to congress and eventually was elected to the Senate where over the years, he's become known as kind of a reliable conservative pretty partisan Republican Lindsey Graham through the Bush years still Bama care from day one voting against the Obama years. He led the fight on Benghazi demanding he was known as someone who was a truth teller within his caucus. He's been a champion for our military veterans and a fighter for South Carolina. He was seeing much likes. Cain was as someone who you could have a conversation. You could deal with all eyes on Lindsey Graham and another democratic member trying to come up with some sort of bipartisan compromise and really want a lot of bipartisan respect a lot of respect across the aisles took on some pretty unpopular issues within his caucus eighty percent of the people at light CDs. Kids have a better life eighty percent of the people light to begin to fix broken immigration system. Immigration. We won't be debating about the science. We'll be debating about this Aleutians climate change. I mean, he was a big deal maker to this day is remembered and remember to sort of a key word because it's very past tense as someone who could speak some truth to power and someone who was seen as a reasonable independent conservative. Lemme tell you about center McKay. And he also was like a side kick the Gilligan to John McCain's skipper. He would die for this country. I love him to death. He was always the two of them had sort of similar sense of humor reason why. Is not married is because he can't find anyone that loves him as much as he. And was always again, very derivative of the energy that John McCain brought to everything that John McCain did. So two thousand fifteen I'm Lindsey Graham, and I'm running for president of the United States Lindsey Graham two thirds going to run for president he lost. So I never liked him as much after that. Because I don't like and relegates Donald Trump insults. John McCain war here. He's award. He's a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren't captured. Okay. I hate to. Is John McCain a euro? And Donald Trump said, no, he's not I like people who weren't captured. I don't need a poll the tell Donald Trump is not good to say that John McCain's loser. Because it was captured in a time of war, windy Graham, McCain best friend was extremely took great umbrage at this. I don't care if he drops out stay in the race. Just stop being jackass called Trump. I think it was a jackass. Can I got called the jackass by this guy? And then I said to myself. Hey, didn't this guy? Call me like four years ago. Yes, Donald Trump. Then at a campaign event decided I wrote the number down. I don't know if it's the right number. Let's try to to yell out Wednesday Graham cellphone number which to my memory has never been done before in American politics predictably the crank calls the threats commenced immediately, Lindsey Graham cell phone. I think he's a Kook I think he's crazy. I think he's unfit for office. So the phone thing happens the relationship did not improve. Over the course of the campaign. He's race baiting. Zena phobic religious big to say the least. And then even when Donald Trump was elected, even when he became president, Lindsey Graham, and John McCain were still none too happy with the fact that Donald Trump was president they kind of held their powder for a while, they weren't terribly vocal. But there were certain the Cajun's where Lindsey Graham was actually quite vocal and really wasn't trying to hide his feelings at all after the Charlottesville demonstration, and ultimately murder, our president the United States, and these people showed sympathy toward me and my gender. It would bother me. And I would urge the president to dissuade them the fact that he's sympathetic to their goals. Lindsey Graham was extremely outspoken about how the president should not have spoken out seemingly in favor of the white. Nationalist Custer calls is hate it is unamerican they are domestic terrorist. And we need more from our president on this issue. And also about the summer later when? Donald Trump and President Putin had that joint press conference in Helsinki. And the president seemed to side with President Putin over the conclusion of his own intelligence that Russia meddled with the election of twenty sixteen. He's misjudging. I don't think he was paired as well. As the should've been Lindsey Graham was not shy at all about speaking out. This was a NIST opportunity we reinforced and narrative that's bad for us as a nation. It came across a week. But then something weird happened. I am like the happiest dude. We've got a president and national security team that I've been dreaming of for eight years out light the president. I wanna help him a hope he's successful. He's been a friend to me. President Trump has the smarts and the moral courage to listen to his generals. I am all in keep it up down eleven. Sure, you're watching a President Trump deserves the Nobel peace prize, and then some fee don't light me working with President Trump to make the world a better place. I don't give a shit. So that's what people are asking what happened to Lindsey Graham. And I was asking myself. I mean, I don't think there was a sharper pivot from vehemently anti-trump to enthusiastically pro-trump more so than Lindsey Graham within the Republican party. So I decided that I would spend some time Lindsey Graham and see if I could ask him enough questions that maybe he could shed some light on this for me. Chair

"I think these government shutdown a little silly because they don't really shut the government down do want him to to reopen as soon as possible because I care about the human beings who are federal employees who were being treated terribly at this point. But the bottom line is I think that they could have a deal if you know if the word the fencing slash steel slats, right and they gave dreamers permanent protection. That would be a deal worth making. Yeah. I mean, the permanent protection is key. I'm not having a conversation about temporary workers visas, and I'm definitely not having a conversation about let's just pass the spending Bill now, and we'll do a standalone Bill later. No don't be stupid at this point. It was stupid in the past to take Republicans out their word, and is Chuck Schumer learned McConnell had no interest. In proposing a standalone Bill much less having a vote on the Senate floor now with that said one of my favorite exchanges about this issue happened between Dana bash on CNN and Lindsey Graham. And it was about the issue of who pays for the border wall. Now, Trump campaigned saying, and we all thought it was a joke that Mexico would pay for the wall. Well, what happened with that Lindsey Graham's about to answer the question? He did say that this is a campaign promise to build a wall. But he also said Mexico would pay for it not the American taxpayers. What happened to that? Well, I'm not asking Mexico to pay for American people to pay for it. Yeah. Well, at the end of the day, we'll see how the NAFTA deal. I think he'll claim that Mexico is paying more under the new NAFTA deal. But I'm not talking about what he said during the campaign. I'm talking about what we can do now to open up a government that needs to be opened up. The coast guard's going to get paid here soon. I'm not asking Mexico to pay for it. I'm asking the American people to pay for it. That's a direct quote from Lindsey Graham, and he is also the typical politician who will turn around and argue that we don't have money to fund our schools. We don't have money to give students student loan debt relief. We don't have money to offer healthcare universal healthcare. I mean, this is such a ridiculous conversation. And it's again, look five billion dollars in the grand scheme of things might be a drop in the bucket. But I don't consider it a drop in the bucket. When you when you look at the number of people living in poverty in the. Country that Republicans want to turn their backs on in by cutting food stamps, and whatever government programs there are so Lucy you won't do find billion out of the defense department is going to go to defense contractors to pay for the wall. My guess is you're going to say, no because their your benefactor's. So, hey, look, you got Donald Trump to bloat that defense budget up. And now it's gargantuan it's seven hundred and fifty billion dollars or just take five out of there. You're not gonna agree because that's your donors Lindsay. You're gonna make the American people pay again when it comes to walls and wars, Lindsey Graham, and his fellow Republicans can always find the money when it comes to educating your kids giving them healthcare giving you higher wages somehow..

"I'm not saying it was me. But it was it wasn't Anna. Let's go forward. The United States is still currently undergoing a partial government shutdown Democrats and Republicans have not made a deal over how to fund the government. And it's all because of the fact that Donald Trump's still demands the five billion dollars for the border wall. Now, Lindsey Graham Senator Lindsey Graham had a meeting with Trump and specifically talked about this issue. And he is hopeful that there could be a deal soon based on protections for Dhaka recipients. Oh, no. Here we go again. Now, if you can remember recently there were similar negotiations taking place when it came to funding the government and Democrats wanted protections for Dhaka recipients, and you know. Mitch McConnell had promised Chuck Schumer that he would present a standalone Bill, and then he never did. So I'm hoping Democrats aren't stupid enough to accept what Lindsey Graham is about to propose take a look what I mentioned today is an outline of a potential breakthrough would be five billion dollars for wall slash border security the bridge jacked and TPS reform. I think that's in the rim possibility the president didn't commit, but I think he's very open minded. So he did reiterate later that Trump has been noncommital to this. But he's remaining open minded now, I don't know what happened with Trump because he wavered on the funding for the border wall. And then you have Rush Limbaugh and Coulter kind of bullying him on cable TV or on the radio show. And all of a sudden, he's kind of he's difficult to move. Like, I want the five billion no matter what who knows if he's going to take the steel. But what I'm hoping is that Democrats don't take the deal because it's a workers visa for the DACA recipients. It's a very temporary protection for them. So I was lightly different. Take on it. I agree with Anna's note of caution. Don't I'm not interested in promises, and when I'm not interested in temporary visas and Trump has moved a little bit because he's dying actually get this over with. He moved in two different ways. He's now calling it steel slats instead of a wall, and my favorite he's saying that could be see-through could it be gauze curtain, perhaps less. It's going to be such high tech technology that it's going to be invisible. It's going to be there. But it'll be invisible kind of like our fighter jets have thirty. It'll be a stealth wall. Make it invisible to the naked eye. Okay. But it's there anyway. And he also actually according to sources. Offered to make it only two and a half billion to five billion. So he would be my counter proposal, and I would take a deal. And so, but it, of course, depends on what's in the deal. So if dreamers are permanently protected, and I know they got held us hostages, and I know that it's a ransom note. I know all that. But if they were to be permanently protected, and it went towards barriers instead of a concrete wall because that's what we Democrats were in favor of fence. Anyway, right. Then I would take the deal because it's not about like, I'm not an panic to open the government back up..
