"He has this very weird interaction with Sasha baron Cohen's character in this America were this is where I started to think Cheney he is jealous of people who have killed people with their bare because this Sasha Cohen's character is like something like militant right wing crazy eastern European guy. And. And he just talked about killing people on Cheney is so interested because the only I think he I don't think he could I think he's a coward. I think he's a coward. Yeah. I think he's a piece of shit. I don't think he could. And don't think he was. Jealous of people who do he'd want us think he wants to be as close to it as possible. And and it's such a weird reaction of like he admires this character. He doesn't know it's character. But he admires this guy. They see no talking to their laughing about killing people and stuff because Cheney is he's one of these guys who watches wolf of Wall Street in wishes he could be Jordan Belfort on the highest scale. Now, he's one of these guys who never could actually do the thing. He wanted to did every other thing possible. And probably thinks he's a failure. I think is massive failure and terrible person. But oh, yeah syndrome. No doubt right in the Polian complex, the utmost scale, whereas w seems to he's an idiot who is a war criminal and is like the weirdest victim of circumstance became an eighty four and a worker mall at the same time Cheney is like a puppet master, it's a nightmare person. And I didn't wanna watch vice because I'm worried they were trying to make him like warm. That's why I'm writing this dumb stuff about him like walking around music from boogie nights and shit is like, yeah, they definitely don't. They don't make him. There's like maybe one or two moments in the movie. Where you think that some tenderness is gonna shine through and kind of does maybe a little bit just because you know, oh, he's a human being. And he's having these heart attacks and stuff like that. Hey, did he has a daughter who's gay and then they throw her under the bus for the other daughter, and it's just like, oh, your total. You're like even like because every they frame it where everything he's doing is for his family because his wife Lynne Cheney threatens to leave him when he's very young and just as drunk fucking idiot. Right. And so now he turns everything around it becomes the most ambitious guy in the world. And now just won't stop rising the ranks because he's gonna lose his wife again, you know. And it's like it's like, I think it's a combination of me not wanting to give any attention to who. I do consider the worst person of that decade in maybe the whole world. And I'm also worried about I'm tired of 'bio-pics like that's like a crazy combination. It's like this came out around when bohemian rap. He came out. And I'm like, I'm just I'm tired of Wikipedia page movies. And it sounds like this isn't. Oh, you didn't rhapsody is that that's a that's the first three paragraphs of Wikipedia page movie. Like that is they don't really dull to deep into that. But the thing about vice that is interesting for me is like it puts a lot of the events that were happening time period into historical context, and whether or not it's like you can rely on it because it is a movie, you know, I haven't fact checked this movie, but the time line still the creation of ISIS is explained at least in in. Yeah. In some like, they show you how ISIS is how Cheney created ISIS, but just to put this out there T shirts. What if ISIS was chill? Something new vice we will not be making t-shirts the chill, but maybe I will be making vices t shirts..

"There's some at some point you find a quote, I forget what the exact wording is. But it's basically like the people who are quiet. Yeah. Those are the ones you gotta watch out for and I was thinking like that is a move in that I'm old enough now that I've dealt with different type of bosses and different people gone back to ESPN or whatever. But the quiet people who you never kind of know what they're thinking. Those are always like the dangerous ones. Oh, yeah. They put the keep it close to the vest. And they might be killing you in private or doing whatever, you'll never know. It's definitely like if you're playing the game the move is to be quiet ballot. Check. Chat has fucking nothing. Nothing. There's an interview with Douglas Feith worked with Cheney. And he actually said like when you talk to Cheney in the beginning your voices about this active. And by the end, your voice just keeps going up and up and up because he gives you nothing you're trying to make up for the lost like filling in for the GATT. And he said by the I start here by the end, I'm kind of up here going so anyway, we're going to do that. And like this is one of his guys saying this and yes whole game. As I I mean, Lynne Cheney actually said if you want to understand my husband, you have to know one thing, he's a fisherman. So that's his whole game is like patience. Wait at the bend of the river at ain't happening. That's okay. Like, he's fine with like pulling back in waiting a year like and just detailed detailed detail. Yeah. He's incredible figure, man. I mean, it's a really could argue each changed America in the world as much as anyone in the last thirty forty years. It's nuts. When you think you do movie about this guy who you clearly probably don't like that much. I would say it's safe to say, well, I have a you're trying to make him a a human being a human being which you know, my role of the movie is if you're making a move at anybody, I'm going to start rooting for them at some point there movie 'cause you I just watched escape at Dan Amora, the great. Yes, good. It really is. And it's lung, but it's it's worth it. And these were horrible guys by the end of it. I'm like, no don't say the capital out of really for the. They're horrible. They would've gone kill people if they had escaped, but it's just something about the movies TV. They suck you in. And is the same thing with vice like that half of their Atlantic chaining, Paul Paul Thomas Anderson came to a screening, and he's like, why do you have me rooting for Cheney and Rumsfeld to destroy democracy rave during the four years? Like, I'm kinda cheering them on in leg. Yeah. Lobby the biggest criticism for the movie, right? He was sympathetic on people. It we humanize them too much. My feeling was that if you don't humanize them, it's a waste of time. I mean with any tournament like Hannibal Lecter put a fucking metal mask on them. And we'll into into that eleven meetings, which I would watch that movie. But also what we found was that he was a regular schmo. When he was in Wyoming. His brother sister brothers, like a plumber, and everyone in casper, we interviewed people said whoever Lynn vincit Lynne Cheney would have chosen as her husband would have been president or vice president. I mean in a weird way the story is kind of hers. Yeah. It really is. Like, she is in the speech in the beginning. She's like I've chosen you. She's a bad at let me my friend of mine got called by her like about twenty years ago about something. He said I have never been yelled at by another grownup like I was just yelled at by Lynne janey like she's tough man and whip smart, so yeah, the fact that he started as a regular guy like the the kind of movie I used for the comparison with Sydney ANSI. Yeah. That I felt like, you know, said was just a consensus the Ed and Paul bass player, and he met Nancy and he loved her, but she happened to be a junkie. So you're going to date a junkie. Let's get into it with. Was bail like on the set Joyner summers? Does he stay late at twenty twenty four hours a day?.

"But he's a symbol for whole bunch of stuff, let's revel in the symbol. And then with the Dick Cheney movie, it's like we want to make the Cheney simple. He's sort of a simple. But he's not. I don't know. I just thought it was fun to introduce a second Queen movie, I guess third Queen movie if you think of Lynne Cheney's third is the third Queen or the fourth Queen this situation. But I hear what you're saying about like it is. Use that like they say Dick Cheney is the most secretive leader ever or whatever at the beginning of the of the movie, and they never consult like his own autobiography, right like, which I doubt he told the truth in it. But like 'cause who would tell because politician, you know, like, you're gonna be saying things with an agenda all the time. But it is interesting that it's never it doesn't seem to even be consulted. What do you guys think about the claim that the movie makes first of all it says the movie says that this is a true story? And it claims that the donor for Dick Cheney's heart is a soldier who fought in Afghanistan and was transferred from a torn Afghantistan to tournament only to make it home after the war. Get hit by a minivan and get his heart immediately delivered to Dick Cheney. I don't think there's any reason to believe any of that is true. I might be wrong. But I don't think there's publicly available information as to changes heart donor is but a that they would claim. This is Dick Cheney's heart donor and be that they would make this person the narrator of the movie in order to give the movies kind of overarching polemic the legitimacy of the perspective of that person. I thought was really interesting choice. I mean, what did you think about that? Yet, the oracle the Wikipedia article is says that it was an anonymous donor. So it sounds like there isn't any sounds like there isn't any basis for the claim that they make. So it's more of the sort of. I mean, it's more the poetry of the thing. Right. Like that. This is a person who survives the havoc wrought by by Dick Cheney. It's I mean, I think it's a point about sort of service or the, you know, those who serve right? They also they also serve who only stand in way to get hit by a car. The the soldiers serves in in the military, right? Is you know, putting his life at risk is doing his duty is. Is in this sort of dubiously legal dubiously moral trumped up sort of war, and and then sort of comes back. And then in the end is sort of fodder is like is more kind of raw material right for Dick Cheney to kind of continue his to continue his great work. You know, what it's like it's not like Dick Cheney killed the guy to take his heart. The movie kind of presented that. I mean, like the most critical in net, you could say with Cheney in so far as bad twist is considered chaining refuses to at least, according to the to the the dead narrator. The American beauty's speaking from beyond the grave narrator, I refer to it as somebody else's heart. He just refers to it as his new heart. And that seems to be the main beef that the guy has but mean, it feels like the hard donations don't go to like who's the nicest person, they don't like add up. Your score allowed the good place and decide who deserves to lay that who doesn't deserve. You know? It's like if you weren't convinced that the movie had an ax to grind the fact that like they showed the guy like playing with his kids, you know, he seems like such dice. He's Landry from Friday night lights. He's just such a likable guy. Even in these sort of like, the fleeting glimpses you get to him. But he's also just you know, so you can't the long shadow of Todd is everywhere here. And also the lawyer from the post, right? See sort of like, the hamlet's ghost of prestige television built now if you just like appears as third person peripheral participant, but I hear what you're saying..

"Let's get back to my interview with Adam McKay, he wrote and directed the new film vice which is about Dick Cheney and how he became one of the most powerful vice presidents in American history, it stars Christian bale is Cheney Amy Adams as Lynne Cheney and Sam Rockwell as George W Bush, so making vice was a very eventful period for you. You had a heart attack before the movie was finished. Thank goodness you survived and seemed to be in good shape. Now, what point of the movie were you in when you realize you're having a heart attack? We had just finished a filming. I think we'd raft for about a week. And it's that period where the editor is putting together the Iraq assembly of the movie Hank Corwin was working on its you kind of have this little week and a half two week break. And I just realized I was not in the best shape. I put on weight during the movie, I was foolish enough to continue smoking not a ton. But I was you know, about a half, a pack a day below half a pack a day, and it just I didn't feel good. My doctor was warning me. And I was working out with my trainer. And in the middle of my hands started tingling and my stomach felt queasy. We'll those aren't normally symptoms you think of with heart attack, usually think of pain in the chest and the arm. So I told my train hard on fine. I'm fine. I'm just tired. This is just weird and he left and his soon as he left. I remembered the heart attack seem shot with bail when he. Is running for congress in Wyoming in the late seventies and pale. It asked me said how do you want to do the heart attack? You want it to be a pain in the arm the chest. He goes, I could also do the queasy stomach. That's really common. And I remember ask him like, what do you mean? I've never heard that before queasy stomach, and he goes, oh, yeah. It's very common. And so that moment just flash back to me while I was sitting on the couch, and I went holy Lord. And I ran upstairs, and I just down for baby aspirin and called nine one one. And God bless nine one one within three minutes they were there, and they had me at the hospital another three minutes after that. And the doctor was like why did you take those baby aspirin like I think he knew usually the queasy stomach thing. People don't react to that one. And I said, oh, my lead actor in our movie told me that's how that's how hard attack works and. The doctor said because you acted so quickly. You have no damage to your heart, your heart. And then he said not only that you have an extra strong heart. So he said the only dumping you're doing is smoking. So he said if you stop smoking, there's no reason you shouldn't live to be one hundred years old. So I have stopped smoking. That is the good news. And and my heart is as good as new, but man, what a scary experience. So I called Christian bale week later. And I said either you or Dick Cheney just saved my life. And the craziest thing was they took me they call it a cath lab, which I had never heard of before the catheter lab, and they take you in there. And that's where your heart. Doctor comes in your cardiologists. And this was a guy named Dr Henry is one of the best in the world. Thank god. And they get to work on you. And they're you know, they're going to clear out that blockage. And they did and they were amazing, and then towards the end I was on drugs, obviously. And for some reason, I thought it was very important that everyone at the table. No that I just done a movie about Dick Cheney. And how how ironic this is that I'm on a table having a heart attack. And of course, no one cares. But I saw sort of mumbled it. I was like this is weird. I just said a movie about tick Cheney and everyone ignored me as they should have except one voice to my right. Just after beaches said the Cheney great American. That's not the point of your movie. You know, it's I in my mind, I was like I don't want to argue with this guy that these people just say my life..

"Eleanor mundane jobs. We're seeing bureaucracy. Military. Foreign policy. Right. I like that. Okay. Sam Rockwell there as w what did you think of this movie? I think Adam McKay is doing basically the same thing. He did for the economy with the big short with a tale of almost Machiavelli and political power. I think this is him attempting to make his ridge of the third it's not pretending to be even handed, and that's the newest strength. And I think it's also it's fault. Well, we don't really look at bio-pics as accurate necessarily accurate additions of history. That's true. But a lot of people don't do the additional reading. And so I think it does behoove us to be responsible in this case. I don't see a lot of flaws with the actual facts as they are presented for me. It's an issue of tone. And I think one could easily accused the film of being a little condescending. Although I don't think it's unjustified so Christian bale talked about his transformation. This is of course, a movie that's resting on performance and also Amy Adams as Lynne Cheney. It's about that relationship very much. So. Sort of a Lady Macbeth character. Absolutely. Yeah. They paint her very much as as the inciting incident for the Dick Cheney that was to come. It's a really interesting movie and that it's released now. So it's set sort of an interesting contrast to our current administration in which Dick Cheney if anything looks very organized, but Adam McKay is not an organized filmmaker. He's a very messy filmmaker and sometimes that leads to great moments, but not a really cohesive overall effect. He's a blunt instrument it feels a little bit like a well acted Twitter rant to to highlight your point. But the interesting thing is it's narrated by a character that is based on a real person. But also represents us the everyday person who has impacted by the MacIntosh in seven administration and on also the compassion that Cheney lacks he's the embodiment of that which allows him to be ruthless. So this is the story of the president doesn't have Hauer. The president's job is to distract. From power, which is from the Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy. But that's him. He's the silent power, and he becomes the embodiment of all of the people that are moving us around like pawns to impress their wives. That is. I think it's fascinating. I think that's a really good way of putting I I think there's a lot done pack year. But it's it's a it's he's throwing everything at a wall. And enough of it sticks does work it does. Okay. Well, in that same vein on the basis of Sachs's about the early life of Ruth, Bader Ginsburg, it stars Felicity Jones, and.

"So what will you create? Let's get back to my interview with Adam McKay, he wrote and directed the new film v. Ice which is about Dick Cheney and how he became one of the most powerful vice presidents in American history, it stars Christian bale is Cheney Amy Adams as Lynne Cheney and Sam Rockwell as George W Bush there each nominated for Golden Globes as McKay for both his writing and directing McKay also made the comedies anchorman. Talladega nights and the big short. He's a former Saturday Night Live head writer, Christian bale is really fantastic in the movie as Cheney, particularly as the Bush era Cheney wouldn't and some of it is the makeup and press FedEx. But he gets the voice so well, and the breathing like you can always hear Cheney when he's breathing when he's inhaling before the next phrase, he's about to speak, and he gets the pacing and the breathing perfectly. Right. And also, you know Cheney when he speaks. It comes out a little more on one. Side of his mouth and the other and in Christian Bill got that perfectly. Why did you think of him? I mean, physically he's the opposite type of Cheney. He's you know, he's he's got a very narrow face, or at least that's how I think of it as opposed to Cheney's much, you know, kind of rounder or more more square face Cheney's, heavier than bale bale had to put on a lot of weight for the role Christian Bale's, Australian which I never remember when he's playing an American. Welsh welsh. Okay. Yes. Well, but I never remembered that he he's not like. A native American accent speaker? So why in the world did you think of him? He I think you just said it I I didn't really care about him. Looking exactly like him. I was more interested in the kind of psychological build of the character. And there are just very few actors like Christian bale and Amy Adams that can do that kind of work where they really build a character, psychologically, and so it's not just mimicking gestures or mimicking motions. They know why that motion is happening. They know why that gesture is happening, and there's a psychological history to it. And there's an evolution to it. And man, I I've never seen anything like it with this movie as far as getting to watch Christian put this character together as everyone on set every day. He would walk on. There was like this quiet reverence for what he was doing and the depth to which Bill win. Wow. It's I'll I'll never forget. The first day where his weight gain mixed with the makeup mixed with all the psychological work mixed with all the character work when it all came together. I just literally the Harris stood up on my arms. I've never experienced anything like it. So in your film. There was supposed to be a musical number that I'm sure would have been really funny. And when I read that that was supposed to be in. There got really angry be edited it out. And I I really wanna see it. Okay. So it will be a DVD extra. But how long I'm I going to have to wait for that. But so tell us something about the production number. What it would you can sing it. You can sing some of the lyrics so good. It was so good. We have Britney Howard from the Alabama shakes. We have the choreographer of Hamilton. Get Christian corral. It was basically a Don Rumsfeld teaching Cheney neither a borrower norlander. Be except you know, always a bar. Always borrow borrow be. And yeah, it was amazing. It just tone wise, and story wise did not work in that part of the film in we tried and tried and tried it almost worked, and it definitely have had a little Pang recently. A man maybe I should have just left that in there. But the good news is it will be out with the, you know, when the release of the movie happens, and streaming and DVD and all that kind of stuff, and it really is tremendous issue to call them because here's what you could have done..

"There are exceptions to the rule. Black Panther the one that I'm thinking, which is great because those came out in February. Yes. And it's good that we're reaching beyond just the December Christmas release for Oscar mentality. Yeah. That's true. That's a good thing. Okay. Well, okay. So four and a half tickets substrate street could talk let's talk about vice that's the other one you mentioned another heavy hitter lots of award season BAAs, and I didn't care for it at all. So yeah, I've got strong feelings for this one. So it's a look at dick Chaney, and he's rice a power starting with the Nixon administration and how he became to be George W Bush's vice president and all the years in between that that kind of built up who he was as a man under Donald Rumsfeld howled in Cheney played a factor in that this is from Adam McKay who wrote and directed it. He did the big short anchorman brothers. So your divisive opinion poll that you did not like this at all? I feel like either people love this movie or they hate it. So you I do not care for it. And has nothing to do with my thoughts on who the change ours. Yeah. Like, I agree with Adam accused thoughts, and he makes it very clear. It's a very cynical look at who they are as people, and it's so in your face, all of the imagery, the tax the direct to camera talking at some point the like, it's so many metaphors if he's throwing out you collect driving into your hat of how he feels and how he thinks you should feel about them. You're kind of it's too aggressive so aggressive, I agree with you. But like left the audience figure out to let let us in on having our opinion about it with the facts that you're trying to tell us about who these people were interesting interesting. He does definitely track the to Trump almost as if you weren't paying enough attention to the Chinese now, we have Trump. In a way. Okay. Now, there's a lot of the tax that he uses. He's using a lot of Trump words with the Cheney with the Cheney story to kind of dry that altogether. Interesting. Big names in this movie was gonna ask about to talk about performances is Dick Cheney. He's actually excellent. You know, he is he capture sheen away. I don't think is transformation or caricature he is so grounded in the way that Christian bale dies. The atoms as Lynne Cheney, and I think it's a very one dimensional formats, and but that's the problem with the writing. She was that it spans so many years that you clip along from seeing that you don't really sit and dive into anything. Sure, you hate Lynne Cheney when you're watching this movie. Oh, wow. How she acts toward dick and everyone else around them and Adam McKay as a filmmaker wants you. Yes. He wants you to hate Lynne Cheney, and then you have Steve corral as Donald Rumsfeld very much a caricature performance. Maybe that's his point media. A lot of these performances are caricature over the top as what's Adam trying to do. But then Christian Bale's us, very grounded in the realistic, which way which way do you want to go? Do you want to go on subtle or do you want to go in the? I feel about it. Even just knowing that Mackay's involved in it. It's because he's done a little of everything. Right. And so I don't even know hearing that he's associated with this. What I'm what I'd be walking into what to expect? It's too much. Yeah. You know, like, you can make your point very subtly. It doesn't do that. At all. You can he has this whole like fly fishing metaphor? You also has his teeth cut metaphors. He's.

His family means something he never wants to go back to being that person that he was because he wants to keep what really means something to him while power means something here, and they do let they do let you see that. You know, he really is a human being when it comes to the most important things in life which most of us would cherish. And I gotta say Amy Adams. She's won the just want a few people in the movie who does. Her performance that out too much makeup. Yeah. You know, it's not not a whole lot of makeup on her which is great because it makes her performance stronger in the film. I think and. Also like, I like her as Lynne Cheney. Now, I don't know, you know, the real story behind Lynne Cheney at all in the wife of Dick Cheney. But ado ado, love the way they've written us as a character. Like, she looks at all these men, I she's acting like she's mad at him. But she just mad because she can't be as powerful as other man. She's like she really does have this thing on her. What she's like, I'm looking at all these people I hear and she says her on the movie, I'm smarter than all you dumb, motherfuckers. I would never have the chance that you do. Right. She says, you know, I would just do the next best thing. I'll stick my hand up this man's as like a puppet. It just work him. It does right. She kind of steers into the direction of politics. I mean, it's it's the. Is really great. And I'll tell you, man. What a what I'm talking about the makeup but win the makeup does come into play. They really do transform a Christian bale into Dick Cheney man, you You know know. in looking at Christian bale we've seen Christian Bill. I mean, he's no now for just changing his body. You know, we've seen Kristen bell go from from bulky to Belichick in shit. I don't even I don't even know if we know Kristen Bale's true form today. I mean, you look at those three pitchers, and you go how can that be the same guy within the same four year period? Yeah. Yeah. I think he's like, I don't even know what what he really looks like a Christian Bill could be a black woman. This guy has changed his body so much and there's a lot, of course, especially fun to hear him talk. And how much how much his his out different the way he talks naturally is characters he plays. But he did not tell you that that mouth needs to get an Academy Award nomination. He Lee working at mouth because that is the amazing thing about Christian. You can put him under ton of rubber, and you will still see him acting. And then he thought love it. He's got his his a inflections down. He's got his his voice down. And like I said he works at the corner that mouth, man. The home. Yeah..

He also wrote the big short, which I thought was a great movie back in twenty fifteen Christian bale was in that movie. He's in this movie Christian bale plays Dick Cheney. In fact, I think he really looks like him and as he Morrison himself into him. And I thought the movie was was good. I think there are some unflattering parts of this movie. I don't think that Dick Cheney would necessarily go and see it. Although Lynne Cheney really comes out looking good. And I swear I met her once, and you think you're talking to Lynne Cheney when you when you. You think you're really looking at her Amy Adams played Lynne Cheney, and there's a bunch of wars six Golden Globe awards already best motion picture musical or comedy lead actor Christian bale, really like I said transformed himself. Also, you know, there's other awards that are headed in the direction or nominations of that movie. So it depends on how you feel about that kind of comedy.

She's actually the best thing in the cast and Donald Rumsfeld. Who's played by Steve Carell and their other stars who turn up and other minor roles. The film. Yeah. It doesn't work at all. Because it's basically a monster movie. You have no more explanation of why Dick Cheney wants to take over the whole world and dominate Washington. Then you ever get explanations of other kinds of monster movies like Godzilla wants to destroy Tokyo. It's just is you have to assume that he's just an evil evil horrible guy. Here's the problem for people who don't follow politics closely. They'll have no idea what's going on. It's very confusing. It covers some fifty years of history, and that's won't work for people who don't know that history going in and for people who do know the history going in. It is appalling how dishonest the film is in the way it portrays aspects of Dick Cheney's life. They even suggest that he didn't deserve the heart transplant that he got to keep him alive in two thousand eleven. It certainly shows more sympathy for Saddam Hussein and the Iraqis than it does for Vice President Cheney or President Bush for that matter one and a half stars for vice can't see any reason anyone would enjoy this picture the makeup's good. No, really, they they do make up Christian bale who plays Dick Cheney to look like vice president Sam Rockwell.

"Cumulus station. Now on Amazon, Alexa, K G O eight tenths scale. Good evening. I'm Nikki medoro. Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer says President Trump has said he wants to shut the federal government down over border wall funding, we have a way to keep the government open. And leader Pelosi leader McConnell. Myself have done everything we can to avoid a shutdown but President Trump wants one he's asked for one twenty five times. And he said in front of us. He'd be proud to shut down the government. It is nothing to be proud of the Republican led house has approved funding for Trump's border wall and legislation that pushes the government closer to a partial government shutdown. The house voted largely along party lines. And it now goes to the Senate where it has almost no chance of passing Jeff has given mixed signals on how hard he would push for five billion dollars in border, wall funds. But he dug in today telling House Republican leaders he would not sign the Senate Bill that did not have the money Defense Secretary Mattis abruptly said he was quitting today after falling out with Trump over as foreign policies. This one day after Trump rebuff top advisors and decided to pull all US troops out of Syria. Ohio Republican Mike Turner says he hopes the president has learned a lesson about social media. There's no secretary defense should ever hear of troops being. Bob pulled out of a country by Twitter. And I think certainly this is a moment for the president to understand that this is this is not acceptable Mattis said he would leave in February Christian bale says he wanted to meet Dick Cheney before portraying him in the new bio-pic vice but that he was warned against it bail instead studied internet, videos, photos and first hand accounts of people who knew the former US vice president many of which are still on his phone alongside photos of his wife and kids bail packed on some forty pounds or fake teeth and added a couple of inches to his neck to complete his physical transportation as already earned him, a Golden Globe nomination, Amy Adams, plays Lynne Cheney and underwent her own transformation for the role both bail and Adam say they wanna refrain from making judgments about their characters in their politics.

She had a small part on an episode of that seventy show. Those pictures were hilarious all the way back around. And some someone provided photo. Ios, which was great fun. So I know you can't see the photos on the podcast, but you can see the show on your DVR or you can go to Ellen tube and see it.

And you're amazing Christian Bale's amazing. Steve Carell amazing. Sam Rockwell's amazing. I can't believe it's a true story. I mean, it it's amazing when you kind of get into it in the telling of it and the way that everybody approached the characters Adam really wanted us to stay as sort of. Adam takes these tonal. These tonal risks. When you see the movie, I hate to tell you what it is. But he does stuff that that sort of invites the viewer in and a different way he encourages us to stay completely focused on character through these sort of tonal. Yeah, I didn't. And I didn't think honestly, I was like, you know, it's a movie about Dick Cheney, and I I don't like politics, and I don't really like to get into politics..

"Making cars more expensive to build in the United States. But there's the other point of view that it really doesn't matter as we pointed out with an with NAFTA too. Because of the caps that they put on it really won't affect a tremendous number of jobs, and it may be more of an appearance of actually getting tough on Mexico than the reality of getting tough on Mexico because hey, they're not gonna pay sixteen dollars an hour or in Mexico to their employees. They're not gonna they're gonna go to automation and automation is going to produce it. And so what you've really done is not help the worker at all you've eliminated those jobs and exceleron that jobs because of the way that companies and people respond to incentive, which is economics. You've responded by technology, you know, doing it. So, but my whole point is should there. Be this intertwining of like of of octopus tentacles between government and industry. We give you a little bit here you give us back here. We give. You know, stay out of it. Well, that's that's the whole idea because where do you draw that line at some point the government, then starts controlling more and more the means of production? Women. Do you ever hear of that? I what type of society. Gary would that be? Free market. No, no, no, no. No, no. Quite the opposite in that's the point free Marxist outlook. I noticed president has worked with the Russians before. I'm joking. Stop texting me. No. But the it's it's the idea that the president is not going to be the president forever. Where do we want to start setting the standard of well? We did this for you. Now, you're going to have to do this for us. Oh, yeah. It's the last thing. I might look we criticized Obama preparing the winners and losers, right? Horrible horrible government orchestrated. Bankruptcy. That was just mind boggling unprecedented, in fact, and I. I still to this day wonder. How in the world we let that happen as a nation, but we did. Because it came from the same based emotion, right? The same thing jobs. We got to save these jobs. We've got to save these jobs. Well, after that the government orchestration moved onto an orchestrated bankruptcy moved onto doing what they had to get rid of their what it was the Saturn line that went away. Right. Right. And then because the claim was well, they'll lose entire lines. And then it was well, they'll the dealerships some of the dealerships will have to close the government after that shutdown some dealerships and didn't do it really with a scalpel or based on numbers and profitability. It was this huge heavy handed approach. Stay out of it federal government. And it doesn't matter who the president is create the environment for a free market and be done. I as we said a long time ago went with the Democrats were talking about ObamaCare, and we said, we don't want Obama running the we we don't want Obama or the Democrats running the healthcare system. We don't want Republicans running the healthcare system. Now, I don't want Democrats this involved with industry. I don't want Republicans this involved within destroy. I want them out of it. Yup. I mean with ObamaCare, we asked the Democrats. Well, let's say Dick Cheney ran for president one day. Would you want Dick Cheney involved in your because he's the big guy you want him involved, and we're healthcare now, it's Trump now come on janey whose Laney at that time when we were saying he was the evil guy. Yes. No, no, no. He's not. Okay. Who wrote it the other day word. I see this. I've just remembered it now just popped into my head. Somebody said that Lynne Cheney will be the first female president of the United States. It will be a Republican. I saw that. Yeah. I saw you saw that too. Okay. Yeah. I can't remember who said it, and I never I never read it thinking. How did you get to that point? I thought how did you what was the scenario that you've got to that that that writer got to the point? I'll have to look that up again. I'll remember there. There's the movie coming out about Cheney called vice with Chris. British actor that played Batman. I'm just I just blanked on his name. But apparently he came to bunch of weight and the makeup looks really great. But but maybe that's where that conversation stemmed from. I dunno. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. It's of the scenario would be where she would become president. I I didn't get that. Either. I didn't get that eight six six ninety redeye in fire ravaged paradise California this week..

"Robbing than Cheney saying to a fool like, great, I'll run your whole presidency and him being look. Awesome. You know, that's my concern about the also feel a Cheney never had that conversation with Bush himself exactly like dramatic license. But on the other hand, if it's not eliminating this is like to important at this stage of the game, I feel like for like a puppet show is my thought, but we'll see. Yeah, right. And I don't really need like the, you know, I Tanya wing to the camera lake. Chris Bill turns round is like this actual conversation never happened. But if it had gone like, I don't need that. This movie to wink at me that hard. The thing that I feel like I'm bracing for even more than the movie itself is just the conversation about the Bush years. Like if this movie hits a nerve, if a lot of people see it, if we're going to be talking about it, it's going to be, you know, we've been re-litigating the Clinton years, a punch for obviously living through our own current political crisis. Like, are we ready to be talking about like Judy Miller and scooter Libby and all of that again, it might be a nice break from Trump, but also just might feel completely exhausting. Yeah. I mean, what won't be exhausting. Tyler Perry as Colin Powell. That's pretty fascinating. Amazing. It is fascinating because that's the thing is the cast like the big short is stacked. I mean it's not just Christian bale Indiana's, Lynne Cheney it's Steve Carell is Donald Rumsfeld, which you know that could be interesting because I feel like his other big movie this fall. Beautiful boy has been good for Timothy Shalam his co star, but not necessarily for Carell. So maybe this is a sort of redemption. I mean, obviously, Rockwell is the supporting actor play just judging from this one trailer. But like beyond that, you have Jesse Plemmons Alison pill, lily Rabe Eddie Marsan Bill campus, Gerald, Ford, Justin, Kirk scooter, Libby. It's fun. It's stagnant dying. How Gerald Ford fits into the story is their connection that I'm just totally overlooking. He narrates it like the stage manager in our town. Well. It seems like there's flashback scenes with the only time Christian bale looks like Christian bale is when he's playing presumably Cheney in the Ford administration, right? Yeah. Yeah, that makes sense because they me Adams's in several scenes looking more like Amy Adams than like the Lynne Cheney that we knew in the Bush administration. Well, this looks intriguing home. I feel like we all have to kind of like sucker cells up for it. I, it's, we still don't know when we're going to look at it. It opens Christmas day. Presumably it will play somewhere before that. I think we've been speculating that it will be at AFS and Los Angeles, which is where the big short premiered. Two or three years ago. So hopefully we'll have some buzz about it soon. So we don't just kind of have to spend the next three months wondering about it. Af I has now premiering on the basis of sex, the move with bitter Ginsburg. So if they wanna premier, another big movie, we kind of interesting, political, I dunno, counterbalances. Yeah, Ruth Bader Ginsburg together. Like you say, maybe we're not ready for this conversation about George W Bush, but I feel like we're having all the time, like I just last week not to bring the mood down, but like around the Cavanaugh hearings. There was like this report that w was like calling around and whipping, votes for Brett Cavanaugh fan. And then there is this whole. I thought this whole debate on Twitter being like, oh, you guys think it's so cute when he hands Michelle Obama candy at a funeral, but like this is the real George w. Bush. So like I feel like we're trying to have that conversation all along this will sort of crystallize it into something like whether or not the movie is great. It will galvanize a conversation that we keep having around the margins. And so do I want that..
