Who would replace Kamala Harris as California Senator?
"We still have 12 weeks before the November election, Voters will decide between President Trump on my vice President Mike Pence against former Vice President Joe Biden and current Democratic vice presidential nominee California Senator Kamala Harris. But in Harris are victorious. Governor Newsome will have to appoint a new senator to serve the next two years here in California, and well, there's been early speculation on names like State Attorney General Javier Becerra and San Diego State Senator Toni Atkins. Another elected officials told the governor he's interested. Mayor of Imperial Beach Search, the DEA sent a note to the governor with a picture of him in a business suit with a surfboard and water, nothing his intention to seek the appointments If the Democrats win because Pamela Harris may become our next vice president, I notified Governor Newsome like everyone does not is via Twitter that I'd like to be on the collection left to be the next U. S. Senator put out Open seat. And I think it's important to have someone who's not from the insider circle in Sacramento on someone that's ready to help clean up California and fight for our planet and our ocean from day one. Well and yes, I think it was the announcement that color base attention picture of you in a business suit with your surfboard. Right. The water's edge. Kind of embodying what it means to be from Imperial Beach. Yeah, you know, and you're a bitch, maybe small. What? We're mighty, You know, I've seen the names of some of the more high profile candidates and you know the reality of California's in trouble countries in trouble, And so we need someone who's used to doing things without a lot of resource is gonna support. You could get things done quickly, and that's experience. I've had thereby be in that experience that we need for the next senator from California and as the native Senate, California someone who rested 500 California the lifeguard for the state and for the city of Baby, I'm ready for the job and just look forward to being considered by Governor Newsome. Well, obviously you've worked with the governor, and in fact, you've worked as high as going to the White House when it comes to the sewage issue along the border, with the issues coming out of Mexico to impact San Diego County Imperial Beach, the city of San Diego. Everywhere else here with its impact that profile of yours with that fight has gone to the highest level. Yeah, so you know, unfortunately, because sewage issue is continuing to happen. I ve had to reach out from everybody from the president of Mexico, too. You know, President Trump We've met Got Governor knew someone. The governor of Baja California. So yeah, felt the times were like more like an international diplomat rather than a mare. But that is good practice good experience for what it takes to be an effective senator. To give you credit. Since the minute she was in office, she has support our first queen of the border. She's put a lot of attention on period Beach. In fact, her California director came to Imperial Beach to visit her stop is in very involved in this issue, so she's been great on the tissue as well as Senator Feinstein, but it's time for a new direction and and that's what I'm putting My My name in the hat or handed the ring And you know there is a perception out there at some points where you know, San Diego geographically being where it is. So we feel that the state of times may forget about us or things like that. You know, putting San Diego right back up there and kind of raising our hand and saying, Hey, what about us? Yeah, you know, Right now we have two senators from Northern California from the Bay area, So obviously we need a lot more Southern California repetition and the fact that Southern California needs a lot of help. We've seen that during this covert Christ of some of the highest rates, obviously in the country in Southern California, especially here in South San Diego and along the border, So we're in trouble have the highest rate of unemployment in the state along the borderlands question. Imperial County so We're in trouble. We need to get someone to replace Senator Harris. She gets elected vice president who's fighting for California and every California and not just the ones who can write campaign checks, right? I think that's important to make sure that someone who works for every California In every corner of state and every family and put families and kids first for California
Kodak Crashes 85% from Recent Peak
"Kodak. We've been all over this for the past two weeks. Right I told you they got a seven hundred and sixty five million dollar loan to get into the drug. Business Kodak the Film Camera Company getting into the drug business. Turns out in their one hundred thirty, one year history they actually were in the drug business for six years from one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, hundred, ninety, four, it was a failure they got out and it's notable that they got in one thousand nine, hundred, eighty, two years before the recession set in right typical top of the cycle de Worse vacation kind of acquisition move for for a company is being managed into into the ground so. That's where it to the reason episode again and and we're back in the drug business with this seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan from the government I thought that was just kind of crazy enough all by itself because sent the stock soaring from to sixty two on a Monday to sixty dollars at the peak on a Wednesday in you know the third trading session of the week that week. Just insane. That was crazy enough right. Then what are we talk about last week? Well, they granted themselves stock options the day before announcement like that's not fishy like. Crony capitalist move, you know to just try to rake some of his money off the top of the management team. Okay. Now. This Week There's well other stuff going on. So so since last we talked the SEC is investigating this thing. And the loan from the. International, the government agencies called the DNC, the Development Finance Corporation the DNC loan is on hold. And the stock as I speak Ios below ten bucks again, and if you look at the stock chart of the last several days, it looks like it was flatlined. You know like somebody whose heart stopped and then wham the hit it with the paddles and now it looks like his heart stopped again it's a ridiculous episode but I feel like I need to clarify something because of at least one feedback email I got in this case. No, it is not okay for these executives to get stock option grants it's not okay and it wasn't okay for them to get them. I don't believe even back in May. Right I put together a time line I wrote a whole piece about this for the stands very digest and I put together a time line and my timeline showed that the order the executive order from President Trump. Was May fourteenth. Two days before that Kodak moves seventy million dollars from a Chinese subsidiary to a US subsidiary quote in anticipation of an intercompany transaction and quote I believe starting up a new pharmaceutical subsidiary constitutes an intercompany transaction, right? So that was actually made twelfth may fourteenth. Trump is used the executive order and invokes the defense production act and says, Hey, you know, let's lend money to companies so that we can produce drugs domestically because too much drug production is overseas in places like China and India by the way if you research that, it's not completely true. We'll talk about that. Maybe another day Kodak made the director option grants the first time on May twentieth today their annual meeting. So, eight days before they're moving money from Chinese from a foreign subsidiary to to a US subsidiary anticipation of a major transaction. Then trump invokes this defense production act, which is just appropriates money for national security right two days later, then six days later, they grant themselves these options at premium prices. Then approximately may eighth according to an interview with the CEO Kodak, and this government agencies start talking about its new drug business. Then on July twenty seven, these idiots grant themselves more options. Then July twenty eighth and it leaks out stock was up twenty, five percent that day the news leaked out. and. Then Twenty John Twenty as the big announcement right? Seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan to Kodak the shares were up four fold that day July twenty, ninth the stock price hit sixty dollars. And the volume that day is like a hundred and sixty times the previous day and the previous day was twenty, two times the David were that. Next Day July thirtieth a fellow called Mike or non gap thoughts. Which is a a newsletter that he writes on sub stack non gap thoughts. He writes this article citing these suspicious option grant dates when and strike prices next day July thirty fourth. Wall Street? Journal publishes an article citing the potential you know ninety, they said ninety five million dollar windfall for CEO Jim Continente. And there were others on on the Management Team received the options to August. Fourth Wall Street Journal publishes an article citing a new SEC investigation into the disclosure of the loan and the option grants right because it looked like the the loan with the news of the Lomas leaked out on the twenty seventh I think is really what they were concerned about. But the whole thing stinks and let me tell you something what I alluded to earlier when I said I need to make something clear about this. This is not the way capitalism is supposed to work. A corporate management team is supposed to make a lot of money. They're supposed to get ninety five million dollars for creating a business that has performed well for a period of time. That has generated you know for ninety, five, million bucks. You'd better be generating you know at least a billion or more couple of billion hopefully in free cash flow over a period of time consistently, right a real sustainable business for that kind of reward. You don't get paid that kind of money just for getting a loan to be in a business that you were in for six years out of your one, hundred, thirty, one year history and sucked at. Okay that's not the way this is supposed to work. This is the ranking crony capitalism, the EST crony capitalism. And crony capitalism is when you get paid for no in people, right it starts looking suspicious back in May when they're moving seventy million bucks from China to the US, it looks like they already knew they were going to do something and then Oh, two days later trump invokes this this executive order appropriating these loans for this kind of stuff and then up six days. Later, we start granting ourselves options at prices that suggests we know the stock is GonNa take off like a rocket ship. Then we do it again on July twenty seven just to show you how utterly stupid we are. This is not the way it's supposed to work they basically what they did here was. They just took money from well, you know this government money. So you could say they took taxpayer money and they said how can we get way too much of this money in our own pockets? Oh, I know let's grant ourselves a bunch of options. Okay, your stand. Now, I don't have a problem with option grants in general I. Realize people need to be incentivized. It's just the way. Things are nowadays right to to attract good management. You gotta pay them. What looks like way too much money a lot of the time, but this is not that. This is a management team taking money from taxpayers and really taken ultimately from shareholders as well. They're given themselves equity for free that the shareholders have to buy in the market. This isn't the only episode of this. You'RE GONNA see there was a smaller episode that I I kinda filed this way I didn't think I was going to mention it but there was a guy. David? T hines in a story in the Washington. Post. July. Twenty Eighth I mean it's all allegations so I don't know I'll just say this poor fool apparently borrowed four million dollars in this federal PPP paycheck paycheck protection program it was part of the cares act. Right. The cares act was that two trillion dollar corona virus bill that was signed into law in March and included three hundred and forty, nine billion in forgivable loans for small businesses to maintain operating expenses. Mostly payroll, right? That's why it's called. PAYCHECK protection program. So you can just pay your employees even though maybe you're running a restaurant and they have to stay home because of the cove in nineteen, right. So this guy gets four million from this program and then a week later people see him riding around. Miami beach in a Lamborghini. A brand new Lamborghini Lamborghini. Hurricana. Which I guess. That's an electric Lamborghini costs more than three hundred, eighteen, thousand dollars again, how stupid is this guy? That's like granting yourself options the day before the loan announcement. And of course, these things are ripe for. For, this kind of abuse, this is what you get went when the government starts literally like throwing money around all, this is done very very hastily right because we think we have to act we have to act now. and. So this is what you wind up with. You wind up with Kodak and you wind up with this poor sad sack who who thought he wasn't GonNa get caught when he use P P peabody to buy a fricking Lamborghini. It's you know somebody's going to include that in some kind of TV you know some kind of fictional TV show because it's just too priceless. So that's where we are that. That's where we are in. You know the state of of all things financial in August of twenty twenty. Boy Twenty twenty is the weirdest fricken year. I mean things that I won't even get into some of the things that that people I know have been exposed to this year, but it's just. So it's also utterly weird when you shut who who'd a thunk who'd a thunk when you shut down the global economy because you're afraid everybody's going to get the flu or whatever. That all of this stuff would happen that you would get people you know in Lamborghinis with government money and you know Kodak Management taking money out of taxpayers, pockets would have thunk it. Anybody. With a brain is the answer to that one anybody with a brain. And what what you do about what you do about it well. Look we told I told you to avoid Kodak because. People look at that kind of action and the knee jerk. The thing that's built into your brain you know that's that's been kind of evolving for hundreds of thousands of years in complete evolved for hundreds of thousands of years completely different circumstances that have nothing to do with investing. So immediately, as soon as you see that surge Kodak you want hit the buy button but I'm telling you it's deadly and wrong every single time

Sara Haines Talks Being The Best Mom You Can Be
"You know I knew I could be the mother I wanted to be to one and I knew I could be a great mother to and I I think this you yes. I think I can be a great mother to my third and I don't know beyond that I thought such A. Such A. Wise. Honest thing to think about like what kind of mother do you want to be and physically what band with do you have to be everything you'd want to be for each of your kids I'm curious mean I. You know obviously your babies very little still but have you been able to find ways to be the mom you want to be to each of them and what does That juggle look like so far I think first of all the journey of Parenthood, not just Motherhood Parenthood in general is a roller coaster there ebbs and flows. So catching me on a good day, I might be like this is what it's like in the next day just kind of like what the heck is going on here and like completely confused for the most part I found I'm. Pulling it off, but I have to limit because to be my best self I have to have things for me. I have to nurse Sarah isn't there not where mom not worse they are the wife not Sarah the daughter where who I've become as you know, the forty two years on this earth who I am I have to have her in there and I have to nurture her and I think As women, not even just moms moms takes it next level, but women tend to give outside of themselves. So to be my best self, which will ultimately mean for the kids have to carve out time that allows me to grow in my marriage and to grow with my girlfriends and grow in alone time and I think you can't your hand in every bucket there's just not enough to go round so. I'm definitely at my capacity right now not in stress but in availability I some days have it all scheduled other days don't get to anything and barely feel like I pulled the day off but I see glimpses of the ability to do it. It just isn't a habit yet or discipline and it comes and goes, but it's there. I think beyond this I would be losing my morale ability to be my best self like I think depression anxiety can cloud you and if You dip into that you're not even seeing clearly for what you have and I think by getting addicted to meeting another soul, I would be compromising. The balance had already for me right? Not for them. What are things that you do to stay close to yourself? How do you not completely give yourself away during that process because I think it's something that we talk a lot about here at conversation have think with like every mom out there. Selfishly, we asked this question to. The biggest thing is and I did this when I was single too I think when you are not married not having kids, you are so to yourself, it's usually a career. If you're in Newark, you know. So you consumer and with the not putting down cell phone, you can really consume it all day long and whether you're not dating and you're like, I'm just working too much put everything off and you can hide in a career because. There's achievement there. There's feedback their success, and then I think you have to remember that somewhere along the way you don't have a life and job will get you in a second and so I remember ways being big on what's my hobby if I had not a day on the beach to walk a lot but if you literally had one activity that makes you happy what is it? Is it reality TV is cooking is it working out? Is it? For me, it's reading I love fiction just love a good book I literally TV I can get anxious watching and space off and be like I, wasn't even paying attention to work it. I try to I. Mean I I'm kind of laughing 'cause work for watching the Bachelorette. My job to by. Research really over achieving I. DO I have a for But breeding to me is addictive. It's. Intoxicating literally, leave myself and come back and I had the array of emotions and feelings. So if you can lock into what you love and give that to yourself in small doses for me, I have to read before I can fall asleep. So even on an exhausted night, I might make it one page on an iphone. So. It's a paragraph other days. I can't put it down and to me that fills me a Sarah and those places I can go on any story, any adventure, and even though young kids keeps our lives very insular and confined, and we're not very mobile I can go anywhere in a book. And so for me, that's what feeds my soul.

A Master Class in Resilience With George Mumford
"George. Nice to see you. Too, we were just chatting that the last time we saw each other was over Indian food and right before the world fell apart in the winter So I'm I'm curious I WANNA, ask you a question I've been asking a lot of people recently, but I don't mean it in a perfunctory way in a real way I want to hear the answer which is, how are you so much has happened since I last saw you. including the pandemic, and of course, the all of the tumult following the killing of George Floyd. So I just want to check in and get a sense of how you're. I'm really good actually A. I'm feeling great. And I say that. In. Spite of everything that's going on I. Feel Really. Really. Really. Great. And I am. Able as I like to say, hold the heard in generate the hope. So may would feel things. So few things have happened the last time. I saw you a I think it was after Kobe Bryant had died so I had that was like I say the last Sunday in January. And then the next week, one of my highest grew friends passed away during the week after that, my sister passed away. So I've been dealing with a lot of that even before the covert thing hit. But what are the things did I noticed in very? Hesitant to share with people was that even though those things happen, there was A. I was experiencing piece really didn't get touched by those things. And I and you know and I had done I mean just a little self disclosure. I knew my mother passed away. It would be very challenging because of when I was living at Cambridge insight meditation center. In eighty nine, different six years it was November, twenty, second nineteen, eighty, nine, I started dealing with the what they call a deaf awareness meditation practice. What you start the reflect darn. If I did that we're all going to die We don't give beyond death in that sort of thing because I knew when my mother passed, it was going to be really challenging. and. She didn't pass into two thousand and one. So I had a little time. To work on like twelve years. And I think that I continue to work on that and I think it. Manifested in two thousand twenty. where I could see the fruits of the practice. So a lot of times you do these practices are you develop these ways of being? and. You're not really sure. I'm not really sure how it's going to hold up when when the crab is fan. So. You said a lot there. I just want to point one thing out and then didn't follow up on a couple things you said. A lot of people were upset when Kobe Bryant. Passed away in the helicopter crash. The vast majority of people were simply fans. You actually knew him and taught him how to meditate. So it was a different. I. Just want to highlight that that was personal for you. Not just something that happened as a fan. Yes. Yes. It was very personal for me because we're really close. I get the work with him I work with the Lakers, but also I've had in just be when I was writing my book. he had called me and the asked me to come up. To Newport. Beach way lived and hang out for a couple of days because he wanted to start working. He was still it was in the next to last season in the league, but he was about ready to retire. So I got out and I got the hang out with him a little bit and talk about things. And be interacting with him in his own base where he didn't have bodyguards and wasn't a crowd was just he and I and the people I work with but Annette on Tribu stored with the Lakers.

So really close in when he when I heard about his death I was actually at the University of Richmond watching the women's basketball games when I got the text.

And then I found out his daughter seven other souls were a helicopter.

The International Fund for Animal Welfare says some 45 dolphins were found stranded by harbor officials in Wellfleet Sunday morning. Stacy Headmen, a manager with the Army based group says it appears the Dolphins got stranded sometime overnight is the tides changed? She said.

Urgent pumping removes oil from ship grounded near Mauritius
"Are continuing off Mauritius to prevent a larger oil spill after a Japanese ship ran aground there. NPR's ater Peralta says at least 1000 tons of oil have already spilled into the Indian Ocean. The ship struck a coral reef last week, but it still has more than 2000 tons of oil on board. And right now there is a desperate attempt to pump all of that fuel out of the hole before the ship breaks up. Local news has shown video of the island nation's pristine white beaches soaked in black fuel. They showed volunteers using sheets and homemade booms to try to soak up the fuel.
Why South Asia's COVID-19 numbers are so low
"States is approaching five million covert 19 infections. We've passed 160,000 deaths. This virus has paralyzed the richest, most powerful country in the world. And we know this was preventable because at the same time and parts of the developing world countries with far fewer resource is have kept infection and death rates remarkably low. Rhonda's carried out nearly 180,000 tests. Since the start of the pandemic, Erica has applied a combination of mandatory social distancing. A strict lock down and wide scale testing. It's a strategy. We can learn a lot from these apparent success stories this week. We're taking a closer look at Southeast Asia along the Mekong River. As of this recording, five countries with a combined population of 243 million people have had fewer than 5000 cases of covert 19 and 72 deaths. The water Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar doing that the rest of the world finds itself unable to do in controlling this virus. Well, I think if we knew that answer for certain there would be epidemiologists and government officials from all over the world lined up on the door, trying to figure out the secret. That's Hannah Beach. She's Southeast Asia bureau chief for The New York Times. Race wars reached her at her home in Bangkok. And she says, there isn't just one reason that these countries have been so successful. I don't think there's anyone magic bullet, but there is kind of constellation of things that countries Thailand has done, which would seem right. First of all people started wearing masks very early, even when the W H O is dissuading people from doing so. Second of all, it's not really a touchy culture when people greet each other. They do what's called a Y, which is when you put your hands together like you're like you're in a prayer like motion. Sort of all hospitals are good health care's not prohibitive. You know, one of the things that people have been looking at that that it might be some sort of Innate resistance that has been built up, particularly in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar and Vietnam to the current virus. One of the theories that the people in Thailand are looking at is the way in which the novel Coronavirus Cove in 19 evolved. And it started off most likely in bats on DH. Then it went from bad to some sort of intermediary mammal, and then from that mammal to humans, there is there is some speculation, looking both that kind of the genetic origins of the current virus, but also looking at something animals that were at the wet market. In Wuhan, where the outbreak seems to have proliferated that the animal that was thie kind of intermediary animal between bats and humans might have been an animal that was indigenous to this part of Southeast Asia. And that it might have been a pangolin which looks like a kind of like an artichoke cross. Listen, armadillo. If it came from this animal, there is the possibility that something a precursor even this novel, coronavirus had been sort of floating around. In the ecosystem in this region for a long time, and that could potentially explain some sort of resistance that had been built up within the local populations here. And if you look at, for instance, in in southwestern China, which is very close to this region in the number of cases of Corona virus were very, very low. Compared to a place like Wuhan. So again, you know is this is this magic bullet That explains everything We don't know. But it's certainly a factor. That is that seemed interesting. That is interesting. Will you live in the region? You cover the region as you watch these numbers and as you watch the toll in the rest of the world Are you at all suspicious? Do you think these numbers of credible all of these places whether it's Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar If the numbers were so cooked if there were bodies lined up at the morgues. If there were mass graves, we would know there is social media. People talk, people whisper, and we would we would have an idea. S O. I think that's I don't think it's fair to say that the numbers are simply made up. I'm in Thailand right now has fewer than I think 3500 cases. Vietnam, which has had an uptick has fewer than 800 cases. This. Maybe it's off by a couple 100. Maybe if given off by a couple 1000 But if there were bodies at the hospital's piling up from a mysterious respiratory disease, we would know you've spent the duration of the pandemic in Thailand. Let's go back to those first weeks. In January, Thailand confirmed what was believed to be the first confirmed case outside of China. Around the same time the U. S experienced its first case is well. What happened in those earliest weeks? Well, it was interesting that this this first case Thailand has a very good kind of geological service, and in mid January, they confirmed that the Chinese tourists coming from Wuhan, China, which is where the outbreaks believed to have started Had had flown to Bangkok for holiday, which millions of Chinese do every year Bank office in fact, one of the world's most visited cities, and it's one the most visited by Chinese. And at that point, people in Thailand became nervous because there was a mysterious disease up north in China, and there were a lot of Chinese tourists arriving and one thing that didn't happen and we can kind of look back at this. And obviously it's hard to say we know we knew that this is going to be The deadly epidemic that it's become. But in the beginning flights weren't stopped two flights captain arriving from from Wuhan from China, and yes, there were efforts to try to much temperatures of people came in, but there wasn't really that much that was done. Fast forward a few weeks people of their own accord with with government advice started wearing masks and you know there's there's no no sense in Thailand that That wearing a mask is anything but good for public health. There was no there was no no sense that that was somehow infringing upon their individual liberties you've experienced since you there with the ties. Six weeks of pretty strict national locked down. Is it getting any easier now? What's day to day? Life like in Thailand? Now, can you send your kids to school? Can you eat a restaurant? Can you go into stores? You know, I talked to friends back in the states and I feel a little bit guilty because we started our lock down in March and then in Early April. Essentially all international flights stopped. Commercial flights stopped. And so we've been sort of under lock down for months. But beginning in June, the lock down started easing. So all the restaurants all the bars, all the massage parlors, all the all the kind of normal establishments, businesses have slowly been opening up. And now my life is pretty normal. Yes, I still wear a mask everywhere. My kids wear masks everywhere. But schools high schools are back in session on their social distancing. Now they have school kids have school every other week. They wear the masks. They have plastic dividers and things. But there's commerce on DH. There's there's kinda semblance of normalcy, which again makes me feel a little bit that when I speak to people in the U. S, because that's very different from From what? What Americans experiences. You know, we've gone more than almost three months without a case of of local transmission, which is remarkable their cases. Every day, but they're all in people who are coming back from ties were coming back from overseas, whether it's the United States or Europe or the Middle East since that strictest version of the lock down ended Did the economy bounced back is AH are some of the worst effects economically of the lock down starting to ease Because people are spending money again, People are making money again. That's the real tragedy of of Thailand. Thailand did a very good job of controlling the virus and making sure that it hasn't spread. But economists absolutely devastated and the reason is devastated. It's because it's a very tourism reliant economy anywhere. Between 20 and 30% of GDP comes from from tourism, and they're no tourists coming in. So you can. If you want to come on a beach holiday to Thailand, you can't do that right now. So that means that anybody who was a tour guide, our hotel operator restaurant operator. Millions of people have been put out of work. And so the Thai government's really kind of facing a difficult decision right now, which is you can open up. But then if you open up and try to save the economy, you might be also allowing the virus to come in and assistant. It's an issue that Many economies and in many countries are dealing with. But given the success the Thailand has had and being able to control the virus, you know, it makes it that much more. On fraud to even consider bringing people back in and

We had an awesome time and I'll tell you. This was great information. I learned some things things about Long Beach and Port Disney Disney see that I never knew about and this was a very interesting story and I I mean. Can you imagine if it it was built. Oh my gosh it would have been phenomenal. I thought it would be Disney would have had a major control of the cruise ship industry out earlier. It would have been based. Bill might never know exactly yeah never net net never turn your magazine never never say never never turn your back on Disney. They say Jim. Thank you very much for coming on the show. We'll have you back on soon. Thank you wow what did I tell you what a great storyteller retailer he is. It's I mean I did not know the history of Long Beach Port or Disney seaport report. This is incredible. I didn't know okay one thing. I didn't know it's not about Disney Disney own those hotels two thousand dollars a month. I I want that rent. I can't believe that it's amazing what happened with the Disneyland Hotel and and how Walt just pretty pretty much gave it away the naming rights and everything like that just it's just crazy but it's amazing how Disney anyway what when Disney finally got hotel and how they got the Queen Mary and and their ideas for the whole area and building up and making it into a nautical theme park in and had everything to do with the ocean and everything like that. I thought it would be an amazing place place to go visit. I I mean it would be a definitely a world class something very unique in the world. It'd be very unique location inexperienced. They still have habit. They have the Queen Mary and if you're going well Disney is the Queen Mary but but the Queen Mary is still there dome as there. It used to be the home of the spruce and so yeah exactly and so it's just interesting to hear about. You know what could of happen what was planned out but it didn't happen but it was just so amazing. This is just an amazing story and we have other stories stories from Jim about different things that he's GonNa share with us and more historians about remember the the group that wants to come on to talk talk about the history of the Queen Mary now we have to go before Disney. We have to talk about the gray ghost. We have to talk about out all of these things of where this ship came from and now is at the port of carnivals port where you could actually stay the night before four. have all your bags brought over to carnival.

"Disney and so what would happen is they would then you know use that option they had on all that additional land that you know rather had had and they would build a nautical theme park that would be called Disney see with no space between the two world words words a marina a cruise ship port that could house up to five cruise ships which would make it the largest cruise ship terminal on the West Coast and there would be expanded retail and and entertainment area and Disney was going to build five resort hotels five premium resort hotels off the this was estimated to cost you know almost three billion dollars almost three billion dollars. That's command what happened in October nineteen ninety one they changed the name from Port Disney to Disney C. which was just the name of the theme park because the port a long beach was going ballistic that that you know if you have a poor Disney and you you have births for the cruise ship and and you have a a marina that has a slip for you know two hundred fifty boats and and all of this you know this is going to be stealing all our businesses creating confusion in the marketplace and now are so so Port Disney's what it was originally called and then in Nineteen ninety-one we shifted to just Disney see you know and Disney was serious about this. They because you know I sometimes I have people say gee you know I I wanna go to Japan Dan and visit Tokyo Disneyland and they've got that other theme park Tokyo Tokyo Disney Sea. I wonder why why they came up with that name. I wonder if there's some Japanese influence flew into the influence was is they took things that were developed for the Port Disney see project and use it in Japan now. There's there's always a sane in in Disney Company. There's never a bad idea or or never an idea. That's never actually thrown away. It's always put away and is used for another time and this is where where you can actually see some of the ideas or Disney see in Long Beach. actually flushed out is in Tokyo Disneyland at Disney see in Tokyo and you're absolutely right there I from the past and when we go through the different sections at Disney see you'll see the direct connection of wait a minute. They were GONNA do a a a a Sindbad Voyage roughly have that overtook his uh-huh and and it's like wait a minute what and again they even had to build a steamship in Tokyo Disney because some of the plans they had were designed for the Queen Mary and again you're not shipping the Queen Mary. I don't know build your own steamship over there. You know so so what were some of the things you so you mentioned that they were going to have a port. There was gonna be able to accommodate five cruise ships at the title. This is before Disney had even one cruise ship because again. What we're talking about here is we're talking nineteen? ninety-one nineteen ninety two and remember. Disney did not announce its cruise line until ninety four writes eat that we're going to build a cruise line in the first ship will be sailing in nineteen. eighty eight what was happening is people in Anaheim Love Disney because it brought in jobs. It brought in tax revenue. You know it but long beach not so filled with the with the Pixie dust not so little we're with them and they were worried about increased traffic it concerns they were. I can concerned about environmental concerns. You know D- Disney is talking about doing all of this landfill. You know a a a a of some of this and and Disney was you know demanding certain things in exchange ensure building there you know like having them build this huge parking garage and then also have an off ramp from the freeway that goes directly directly into the parking garage and the city of Long Beach would have to pay for that you know right they were looking for tax credits tax yeah open you know and and and and so long beach was not so you know enthused about that so basically Disney held community meetings they they publish an issue of what was called the Port Disney news which I'm sure that listeners on this show show will immediately now try to go to the Ebay and try to find a copy. There was only one issue published but it had full color concept art a of of all things that they were proposing they had descriptions of some of these things and again remember all of this at this. This particular point is just blue sky. You know you you haven't gotten to the hard nosed thing of yes. We're definitely going to build this so you know. How much money is that going to cost? And what compromises do we have to make in order for this to get bills and you know that type of thing so so this is all just oh my gosh this is all just wonderful and beautiful you know and and so and so this this complex is is over by Queensway Bay so there are two sides to Queensway based on one side which they called the city side there would be Disney would build three resort hotels and shopping and entertainment areas and they would integrate existing to uh-huh facility. It's like the Hyatt Regency Hotel the Long Beach Convention Center the Shoreline Village The downtown Long Beach Marina arena that type of thing and then it would be connected to the other side of the bay by a monorail which which also went to all three hotels and then we'll take you to the theme park to on the other side there there would be two more resort hotels hotels and a boardwalk and all of this and and outside of the theme park itself is the world court art which would be you would have excursion water fairies that would depart on a regular basis to the Avalon Newport Report Beach Dana Point Redondo Beach. You know it would have a promenade with easy access to the shops and and and restaurants restaurants so so so try again try and think of a theme park type thing surrounded by you know downtown Disney right I think with with with shops and restaurants and all of that and of course the Queen Mary would be there a familiar icon on and there would be laser and firework shows out there on on on the water now to justify doing the landfill Disney he had to include you know marine the marinas and the cruise ship port and the ferry ports and even some sort of an aquarium because there were certain requirements Weyermann's by the coastal commission. You know allow you to do things do that but let's take a moment and talk about the theme park you know the Disney theme park and again. We're we're talking. This is ninety ninety one ninety two you know and they were looking at you know this would get developed within you know five six years and and then again also developed you know in in different phases different phases would would open now one of the things that would make it different different from Disneyland is that it was also educationally oriented okay so in addition to the entertainment aspects ah they're trying to do the the original intent of Epcot Center which was going to be educational or the right The the Living Seas Pavilion at Epcot that type of thing you know you you you've got you've got the you know you've you've got a ride but you've also got these exhibits and things like that now where him and everything yeah and the and and for this dizzy you'd have an ocean area and and I had to learn what is the difference between an aquarium and an ocean area. You know I thought Gee. Isn't that the same thing you've got a bunch of fish in there and an aquarium you separate species of fish an oceanarium just like the ocean. You allow allow them all to interact together. I didn't know that and so instead of a castle they would have a centerpiece called Oshii Anna and it was like these three to six huge bubbles you you know the huge orbs and inside would be ocean area which was you know a-. At least thirty feet deep holding you know ten to twelve million gallons of water and in Oshana they also had the the Future Research Center which was supposed to be a meeting center for Oceana graphic researchers from around on the world and and they even had the ocean outreach center which was a library of the seat. We which was this massive research library very the that you know guests could access scientists could could access all of that now again. It wouldn't just be oh well I can. I can look at the fish. I can go read a book. What good is there would be interactive exhibits because the whole point of Disney we see was that you should learn about the C- appreciate the C respectively so there would be a catwalks that would go over the oceanarium there would be you know portholes along the side. Let's see you could you could look in kids would be able to borrow goggles that allowed them to see the world away. Fish see the world there would be a submarine simulator and and that would take you to various underwater locations locations and there was an exhibit of how to clean up an oil spill and and all of that but you know the real key to a Disney theme park is is the different lands so this was divided so think of oceanic as again these orbs that were sort of dropped in like a pebble into the middle of a lake and then there were ripples that went out you know from that pebble so so this is how this was designed so the different lands one of the lands was mysterious island and and so the icon in this land was a man-made volcano which was always on the verge of threatening threatening to erupt and the whole area was based on the stories of Captain Nemo and his Nautilus Submarine you know because the again the sequel to Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea Jules Verne wrote was mysterious island so that's why the mysterious island and so there would be a ride going to the lost city Lantis there would be higher it island and on that Port Disney news that they sent out to the people in Long Beach to engender support and all that they described pirate island as Tom Sawyer's the island times ten and but no no specifics about what was going to be on there but that and and then they were we're gonNA have Nemo's Lava Cruiser and so this was a roller coaster was a suspended roller coaster so you're hanging being there and and you see you're you know you're strapped. In of course you're hanging there and you're seeing your feet underneath you and your careening through through underground caverns in the volcano which.

"Finally in nineteen eighty they assigned a sixty six sixty six year lease Jack Rather now Jack Rather was quite an entrepreneur you know among other things he owned the properties of the lone ranger and lassie and Sergeant Preston of the Yukon which shit hopefully there's a couple of listeners out there who might remember Sergeant Preston of the Yukon who is was very popular in comic books and on TV and all that and Jack Rather owned and operated the Disneyland Hotel and then also to help juice up tour- tourism to Queen Mary Jack Rather is the guy who brought in Howard uses spruce goose. Is there to to Long Beach now now what happened when we're all Bill Disneyland in fifty five. He didn't have any money to build a hotel but he figured vigor. There should be a hotel a good hotel it didn't exist in Anaheim near Disneyland for for people the State especially people 'cause Walt wanted not to just be a local attraction but a national attraction. It's a attracting from around the country and so rather was was a friend and you know Disney had gone to Sheraton and Hilton and all that and basically the response he got was where's Anaheim Anaheim so rather being an entrepreneur was willing to take a chance so walt least him for ninety nine years years the land right across from the park because Disney had purchased that and owned that ninety nine year lease at a rate of two thousand one dollars a year for the length of the entire lease and hitting me no and Walter so excited what about having a hotel he is so rather own the hotel but the land belong to Disney but it was leased to rather thousand dollars. There's a year for ninety nine years and and then Walt was so excited he also told gave rather and this is in the contract rather had the rights to use the Disney name not only on the hotel but any future hotels hosted rather might build in southern California and Walt would not build a hotel in competition okay. I just have to get get in there one thing. Is this contract still valid yes so he's paying two thousand dollars a year. That's it's less than a single room apartment here in Los Angeles right now. You can what yeah now now you can see when. Michael Eisner came on board. CEO In September eighty four you can see that he was irritated by this contract right because because during this time and when Walt passed away you know Disney tried to renegotiate the contract tried I to buy out rather and all that but nothing you know the contractors solid and and rather was happy with the hotel once we get the eighty four Eisner's really upset. He says look we we've gotta do and so is ner is trying to do all sorts of macintoshes. mcinally you know like wait a minute. We've got the monorail going over to the Disneyland Hotel. You know why don't we charge rather this outrageous amount of money for the use of the monorail you know going to the hotel and rather response with well. We'll just close down that whole section of the monorail yes and and so what happens is Jack rather rather dies all right and Eisner then steps in to negotiate with the family but Eisner being Eisner as ner. WHO's a son of a gun e offers to buy out the entire rather corporation just to get the hotel but he offers six six dollars less a share than the stock was actually selling at the time it. It's the same thing that Eisner did with the Henson so you know the the contract was almost signed and then when Jim Henson passed away he went to the the family and said well now. The Gym is dead is it's worth a lot less so we're going off you you know and that's when the family walked away so again. The rather family didn't want to deal with Eisner Eisner at all. I already had a reputation as a bully and all of that in eighty seven a New Zealand firm came in and purchased about thirty percent of the rather corporation because the rather corporation without having Jack Rather there and change in tastes and things like like that you know the company the corporation was was having some difficulty so it had purchased thirty percent of the corporation and announced announced that it eventually wanted to purchase at least fifty percent and so is never went ballistic be because a foreign country a foreign company would would gain control of the Disneyland Hotel and the right to use the Disney name on any other hotels wanted to build in southern in California so Eisner went to the New Zealand Company and behind rathers back New Zealand that New Zealand firm bought almost fifty percent of the rather corporation Disney bought the rest and six months later Disney bought out out the New Zealand Corporation so so Disney bought the rather corporation for one hundred and sixty one million dollars plus assuming eighty nine million dollars in debt now with all of that just because Eisner wanted the Disneyland Hotel and wanted that contract correct dead now part of the assets that the rather corporation had was it had the contracts and leases leases for the Queen Mary and the spruce goose and there was an area between those two attractions which was called London town village. which was you know a bunch of shops and restaurants restaurants and things like that but rather had intended eventually over there to build this whole retail complex complex with with with hotels and shops and all that so he ended had an option on two hundred and thirty six acres around on that area and this rhyme real estate in Long Beach? Yes on the Eisner took looming that hey look long. Beach is is right. You know for expansion so I you know all all I really want is the the the Disneyland Hotel and we can sell off all these other assets but let's keep the this Queen Mary and and spruce goose and all of this option on this acreage over here because we can develop that so Disney created a company called W. C. O. Port properties. WC Oh Walt Disney Company Right WC oh Fort Properties to oversee the Long Beach property because they didn't officially publicize it as a Disney property it it it was run by this WC oh poor properties and so they went in and they they renovated all of the rooms on the Queen Mary and they created aided. tours like the haunted passage tour the ghost tour of the Queen Mary and Celebrity Tales which was it took yes through various where rich and famous you know stayed and Disney hired a bunch of look alike celebrities to be on the ship. You know sort of like street misfield today so you know. WC fields the Marx Brothers Mae West Clark Gable they hired a Howard Hughes News impersonator to give tours of the spruce goose and all that now again some be your listeners. Maybe so young they go. Who are those people they they were are important celebrities at one point and so you know they upgraded the restaurants and I in fact Jack Lindquist Quist who later became president of of Disneyland was a vice president of creative marketing he brought in Haret's the the famous London department store. I it's I signature. store in the United States was on the Queen Mary it opened in eighty nine there and but Disney goes. How do you bring people down to Long Beach. You know especially since you're not saying this is a Disney attraction so what they did in nineteen ninety is they created a voyage to nineteen eighteen thirty nine year long celebration okay now they picked nineteen thirty nine because the last peacetime voyage before before the before the Queen Mary was converted into a troop transport and then after the war was converted back to a cruise ship but its last peacetime voyage was on August Thirtieth Nineteen nineteen thirty nine so basically what they were going to do for a year is you were going to take this time travel trip tip back to nineteen thirty nine. There would be a bomb voyage party. There would be you know a a show featuring you know these. He's Hollywood celebrity impersonators dancers. There would be big band music. There would be a special clubs thirty nine that was was decorated like a popular nightclub. of the era and cast members were then trained to Internet Internet interact. They were in period costumes. They were trained to interact with guests as if they were nineteen thirty nine passengers going on a cruise so so so people who came to visit the Queen Mary they were given a newspaper each day that had the same date from nineteen thirty nine and featured you know news items and there was the background music with newscasts newscasts and sports results and and things like that and then the London town village that area between Queen Mary and spruce goose they had the Brighton Carnival so so they had children's rides and Carnival Games teams and they had a a flying circus that flew through the air and all of that and people still didn't WanNa come so Disney offered special promotions there were flyers that were handed out at Disneyland offering three dollars off each admission to the Queen Mary for up to ten people people at one point. Disneyland guests were offered free admission into this Long Beach Entertainment Center with every paid admission to Disneyland isn't he land but you know it it. It soon became apparent the people who visited Disneyland really had no desire to rip out the the Long Beach you know and and Disney did a local TV show to to celebrate all of this and and all of that and you know it's it's like we're bleeding money here. You know what's what's the matter nothing that we're doing and Eisner. Eisner wasn't gonNA give up because again nineteen ninety the nineteen nineties. I don't know if people remember this is near declared it was gonna be the Disney decade. Remember that yeah. This is where Eisner was going to make his his stamp you you know on on Disney because when he came in the Disney company was still being run like a mom and pop business really really because that's what that's what it had been and Eisner saw that we can make this an entertainment empire you know and I can can be the emperor and and so there were dozens of projects listed for that and and again the hope was was that when Euro Disneyland opened it was going to be such a cash cow that that would fund all all of these other projects right and so what is me took a look at is look. We're we're. We're losing money every year here on this Queen Mary you know entertainment. a AH complex you know I'm going to double down. I'm going to double down and so in in January of nineteen ninety basically Eisner came out and said we're GONNA as part of the Disney listen decade. We're going to build another theme park and right now. we're thinking about either building a Westcott which was an east coast variation of the Epcot theme park you know right next to Disneyland or building a theme park work in Long Beach and in fact we might even build both and you know so officially in in July hi of nineteen ninety it was announced the Disney had plans to build in Long Beach Port Disney his knee where we're Queen Mary would be the sort of the centerpiece of this and and Port.

"Follow up follow up and i mentioned this before the break there is this phenomenon that's been happening for wobbly seem to really high-profile examples of in the last few weeks which is a prominent religious leaders walking away from their faith. I would say one one example while. I don't think that it's fair to say that. Pope francis is not a religious. I think that would that would be an overstatement. He's certainly not he's. He's certainly not a traditional catholic in the way that john paul the second or benedek. Were you move over into the evangelical world. You have to very high profile evangelical leaders over the last couple of weeks who've announced that they're walking away from their faith. One who wrote the book. I kissed dating goodbye goodbye. Another who is the worship leader for hill song which is basically means the worship leader for the entire event jellicoe movement because that's where almost all the music of the last fifteen or twenty years has come from in judaism ben you write about this often and even talked talked about tonight in reference to the president's comments about loyalty <hes> vis-a-vis israel that the largest contingent i think at this point uh of jews in america are irreligious. They're they're jus ethnically but they're not they don't participate in judaism. Isn't that really the the hollowing out of our religious institutions. It's happening right in front of us. What do we do about it. I just wanna say only half of the phenomenon. There's another phenomenon going on again cursed with optimism but still there's another phenomenon going on where intellectuals are starting to realize that their default setting think of materialism relativism and multiculturalism doesn't make any sense and is falling apart at the same time that these guys got the hill song guy in this. I think is joshua harasses. This is named who wrote the book about dating at the same time they were announcing. They were losing their faith. David galernter from yale a legendary computer science scientists said that mathematically evolution of the as an origin of species didn't make sense that there was no possible way that a new species could be created aided mathematically the odds against were so huge and went on to save it intelligent design while he wasn't embracing.

She's been waiting for this for two years now at that moment trump inserted himself into the debate and he said send them back which was technically not true because they were an immigrants right. Most of them were immigrants <hes> a- at that moment he got a ton of negative press but what was the conclusion of that. What was the effect of those tweets. The effect was all of a sudden. You had a meeting with nancy pelosi. You had all all of the so-called moderate democrats rallying behind these horrific people rashida to leave iran omar and that seems like a win that seems like where we want the democrats is to be which is showing themselves to be bigoted hateful radicals and if they're doing that. I think trump in a decent light even if he goes to actually this is an interesting conversation because it is a strategy but it is a very risky strategy because you are turning. You're helping the democratic party. Turn itself into the labour party in britain and maybe you think they're already there. Maybe they are but a stripping off the mask. I'm not sure that that is a good long-term strategy because they do have a fifty percent chance they've run the congress. They do have a fifty percent chance of winning the presidency and by the way. I don't think from his weak enough that he has to make them all about a._l._c._o._a. Hannam nor to win. I think trump can beat joe biden if he would shut up for five not not the whole time just for like every every five seconds or so would be awesome like if he just did that make all of our jobs easy that would i. I think he can win. I think there's a real danger in picking the other side and i think the democrats learned that in twenty sixteen when they were like you know who'd be awesome to run against that donald trump never win in hillary clinton is like he should run and as she sitting somewhere up in the woodsy chappaqua quietly weeping to herself the what do you think of this strategy though as serious strategy. I've thought an numerous times the time that i met from speechwriters they said to me. What aren't we doing. What should we do and i actually have an idea. I actually think that there's a speech trump should make where he says. I know who i am. I know what i look. I know what you hear but look at what other compliment where he actually says he just says yes but i would miltie humility i would luckily i don't know that i would like to walk into a quiet little bar in rural texas somewhere to see a guy sitting in the back dot corner who looked at it looks a lot like alex jones and to walk up to the back of the bar in pull up a chair next team at the bar and look over and by god it is alex jones and and i'd like for him to look over at me and say i told them they were making the frogs gay and they made me rich. Can you believe this but i don't think i think that's who alex jones on the trump did have this one moment it was. That was the moment that i thought gosh. There is some humility there which is when he was talking about how he's never we're headed drink. You said you know i'm the only president who's never had a drink. Can you believe that. Could you imagine if i did have a drink. Oh i'd be the worst. It's my only read it now. This guy really has some self awareness. The best moment of his presidency for me was the time marines at blew off and without breaking he chased it down and put it back on the president of the united right states chase down the marines put back and that's again does have good instincts ramey. He does the guy he really doesn't get that. He's president he doesn't get his. He's that his words have a moral weight that other people's words don't have nearly doesn't understand ah i think that's true i mean the the good news for him is that the democrats.

He's been famous for this incredible amount of time. The usually by being notorious donald trump has has more notoriety than he has fame as time went on the apprentice happens and he gets a little more legitimate thing but he's torius figure he he still has the same impulses. What he hasn't learned is that you can actually be beloved. You can actually be supported on the basis tip your actual accomplishments. The tax cuts degrade judicial appointments gorsuch on the supreme court <hes> not having involved in in foreign wars defeating isis these end and by the way yes fighting the culture wars and of course fighting the culture wars proper but i think that what he's what he does instinctively compulsively. I don't think he control himself. Is that even win. The news is good for him. 'cause it's bad for the left. If it's not specifically about him he wants to make him so he when he sees horrible press befalling rashida to leave and ilan omar alexandria cossio cortes he sees them getting pummeled in the press instead of going. This is great. It's going to help me win he goes. Why aren't they talking about me. Counterexample here which i agree the typical advice would be when your opponents are killing each other.

"It's important that israel said no right that was that the jews were the problem because they're not as high on the intersectional pyramid so trump has now trump does have something to hit with right. I mean he can say look at these awful antisemitic congresswoman or re tweeting cartoons from cartoonist who competed in the iran holocaust denial cartoon contest we pause for a minute and think about the fact that there is a holocaust denial cartoon gun. I know i never get sick. Is it a depressing or an uplifting. That's like on the one hand depressing because historically inaccurate on the other hand. The holocaust never happened so good news guys. All my relatives are back but the the media covering trump finally i mean he the last week has provided so many case studies in media bias and this is from specialty right going after the media this is trump specialty and instead trump decides that he's going to jump into afraid that he doesn't need to jump into and be rather nonspecific his comments in the last couple of days forty hours about about jews voting democrat listen i. I think that if you're a jew cares about judaism you should not vote democrat. I think it is wrong for you to vote democrat. I've been saying my entire career. I do not know if you're a jew who cares about judaism. Isn't i do not know for the life of me. You can possibly vote for a party that upholds receded to leave omar as moral superiors. I mean it's just it's disgusting unthinkable the but that you have to make clear that you're talking about jews who care about judaism you know when trump says things like all the jews need to vote for me because the jews care about israel now now. You're running along the line of loyalty charges. You're running along the line of just because you're born into jewish family. You have to care about israel and that is distinction that he's never going to make a nuance distinction obviously the comparison you're making. You're comparing trump. Who obviously doesn't think before he talks. He's a little just a tad reckless. What he really said what he really said was. If you you are do you would be disloyal to israel to vote for the democrats which is kind of literally true and then he re tweeted he re tweet. He didn't say he was the son of god he said he tweeted some clown not just me saying that it ever been say so compare that to the fact that these virulent anti semites who who call israel palestine which is the name of the romans gave israel epa they conquered after it's an anglo position angle cassation of the philistine remember the philistines goliath and all that that's palestine so that's what they go so it's not really a comparison only comparison in a world where the press is all in the art of politics is to make it easy for people to vote for you and trump has to make it easier he does. I mean just as a matter of data. He needs to make it easier for listen. Listen everybody who loves him has already gonna vote for him. He's not no one is going to say well you know. He tweeted one last time to not voting for him anymore. There are a lot of people out there who feel differently and trump has so many victories that are available to him. I mean that whole new york times story that unfolded last week where it came out that dean bouquet over the new york times the executive editor overtly stated to his own staffers that they were shifting from the trump russia narrative to the trump racism narrative. How was that not everything from said for an entire week. How's that not every rally just him saying listen. I've been saying for years about the fake news fake news and the pressure didn't every right the president does a terrible job of running on his success and i think part of part of it is because he's <hes> it's a compulsive behavior that he wants to have attention and the way he's gotten attention for. Most of his career is actually to do things that are negative. He's it's kind of like. Everybody's your kid brother whatever three year olds who had to get attention by being bad.

They can't own their own real estate they are they are oppressed by danish tyranny. We need shock and awe. We need boots on the ground and we need to make queenland's great again what the people want. I'll admit it wasn't what i was seeing. When president president trump was elected is the fight over certain things that were unexpected. I also wasn't expecting the second coming. It didn't come thought it would be coming in the only abraham who wasn't expecting the second coming admit that we were all a little shot that the form i mean this was more like the spanish inquisition. Nobody like when when you figured it's you're okay but when when but if you're gonna talk about you know jesus coming back figured he wasn't going to come back in this particular form yeah ghostbusters yeah we're just imagine the form of our redeemer and what was he like they turn me down thrice to next him coming back and grabbing and by the way. I don't think he got the <hes> before the crew like i don't think he i don't even want to go down that route. You know you will never know the day or the hour and i do want to talk about this because it's an absolutely hilarious if you i'm not sure that it's an mm-hmm inconsequential issues the president if you look at the field and you're sitting where i'm sitting i think that he has an above average chance of holding onto the white house in the twenty twenty bob the average do you mean above the average incumbent or just like better than fifty percent fifty percent the where i where i struggle to think about his chances are when he says thinks like i'm the second coming of god and the king of the jews i it strikes me that that part the president's a blunt instrument and and the very same things that give him his power also greatest weakness and i actually think that's probably true of all of us that usually your greatest strength in your tilles. He'll are located in the exact same in the exact same spot right but the president has this this amazing ability to go above the media go past the media users twitter account to speak directly to the people not just to speak a message about policy to the people but he's able to use the kind of bombastic since of humor that he has to really decide ride with the media is going to talk about and this serves him very well but it also comes with a reliability which is he's not particularly disciplined about it. Do you think i worry that. If the president goes around basically offending jews and christians with the exact same tweet he's going to have in a lot of people who might otherwise be inclined to pull the lever for them. Come two thousand twenty. He runs the risk that what they're going to want. Instead is just for it to be over like would just need a break. We just need the temperature to come down. We just can't take this tempo anymore. That's certainly what the press is trying to set up..
