"Center. Stay connected. Stay informed. The Northwest's on Lee 24 hour News Station Co. Moh news 1000 FM 97 7 President Biden is trying to win some Republican support for his massive infrastructure bill, but so far no takers, the political roundtable on this week looks at the continuing political divide. On ABC News. It's this week here now. Chief anchor George Stephanopolous. Let's talk about it on our roundtable. We're joined by Chris Christie. Rahm Emanuel, our congressional correspondent Rachel Scott, making her round table 80 boot Welcome and New York Times Washington correspondent Maggie Haberman. Also analyst was CNN Rama. Let me begin with you. Case of the covert relief package has passed. The president is making progress on Colbert on the pandemic. We just saw John's piece right there. What does he do to keep the momentum going? Well, first of all, keep pushing this because it's very popular. Not only what he did in the past in the sense Of getting economic relief to Americans who've been hurt by the pandemic. But look every one of these items, whether it's roads, rails and runways or broadband is very, very popular, not just with Democrats and independents. With about a third of the Republican Party, and that is a problem for the Republicans. And I think one of the things that he has done and the White House has done is come up with a very secret sauce. Among my his persona is very pot is soothing and reassuring to moderate swing voters. His policies is soothing of reassuring to progressive and that creates a problem for the Republicans, the dynamic between the persona and the policy that they cannot crack, which is why they're trying to divert everything out away from the actual discussion of this package. Let me disabuse Graham of the fact that I'm trying to divert anything away from his package. I want it. I want to look closely at the package. You cannot call a $400 billion plan to force unionization. In states to say that taking care of increasing Medicaid payments in states is infrastructure Now, language does matter. We learned that in the last four years how you use it and what you say And I said last week that the president's not telling the truth, and he's not telling the truth about the infrastructure package. This is the care economy. This is care infrastructure. It's baloney. And so what's gonna happen is The president right now is in the 1st 100 days, and he's going to have that soothing persona and all the rest of it. But when people start to look at what he's really doing, George those moderate voters, But even those things you just mentioned right there right. There are popular people would love to have Medicaid and created like their grand parents to be taking care of it. So here's what's not popular. Lying is not popular. It's not infrastructure, George. No, No, no, I don't want your word. Lie there. Let's just be fair here. If Donald Trump had come out, it's called a dog. A cat. Which is what Joe Biden's doing. We would be outraged by the fact that he's lying, but with you by and somehow it's like, well, come on. It's Joe. No, no, no, no, it's not true if he wants to make the case George for increased Medicaid payments. And connected to his payments. Bandito Really using S C I u union members let him make that case and see if he gets the past. I know he won't and the people round this table with us. Say or not. They know it won't pass you, Rachel. You spend every day up on Capitol. You're talking people on both sides of the aisle. What are the prospects of reaching a deal? Yes, I was talking to Democratic Senator Chris Coons. Yesterday. He's been working the phones, along with People to judge the secretary trying to get Republicans and Democrats on the same page here Now, Coons does believe that there is a prospect for a more narrow infrastructure package. So he is saying to the White House is saying to Democrats. Let's try to work on this on a two track system. You could still have Democrats try and make this very broad package with everything that they wanted it, but at the same time Try to work with Republicans on a more narrow package may be working on that through Memorial Day. Having that be sort of the deadline there. I was also talking to a senior Democratic source who says Right now they have five Republican senators who are on board with the package upto $1 Trillion. The question, though, is Can you get five more right? You need 10 Do you believe will get Republican? Yes votes for any package. I think for any package any conceivable package. I think there are changes that could be made. But I think based on what's on the table right now, No, I do not. I think that look, I think Biden has, you know, decided that the way that he's going to go Is to pitch very large projects. We obviously saw it with the covert related bill, but the covered related bill was different the way that people are responding to Cove it and to their crises related to it is different. There are elements of this package that are popular, but the overall package I think, requires a level of selling from the administration. That is just beginning and that I think is just different. I don't think the public is as keyed in on this overall bill. As they were on the cover. So Rhonda father Republicans were against anything like with the president's proposing right now. Is it? Joe Mansions? Washington? Why wouldn't know Washington is America's capital, not his. He's a very crucial player, then he's nice. He's playing that role. Excellent to that point, I do think we should not lose sight of this fact. Which is The package. The first package aside, like to say, is covert endanger engenders one response, credit default swaps and the path in gender, a whole different response of revenge. This package and I referred issues of roads of broadband is very popular with the American people. They see it in their own community. They know the impact of having delayed a bad roads, getting to their kids soccer games or after school activities when they're back in school, and I would just say to this point It's popular with the American people. And one of things that Washington has not caught on. Is that Joe Biden's redefined what bipartisanship is when you get 25% of the Republican voters? That's a problem for revolt. That idea I completely really Your money at 20 and 50 past the hour on Co Moh news. Almost Money report is sponsored by Propel Insurance from ABC News Wall Street Weekend..

"You can say as a prosecutor. They're not looking people your district. They're investigating people woke up sunday morning for that incites. Let me kill back here coffee relaxed. They're not looking you over there recipes. Him we're gonna see whether they have or not one of the real ugly things that has happened over. The last number of years has been the increasing leaks of these type of investigations. When i when i became governor the legislators would complain about the fact that i'd twenty nine federal prosecutors with me to the governor's office. They said these guys still think prosecutors. They don't leak those going on. I really really bothers me. And i said this to attorney general bar at the time about the leaking. That was going on and i don't know what the truth is about matt gaetz but one thing. I'm confident we're gonna find interesting on this case you have this case. Nobody saying anything. Even though there's a lot to be said you also have congresswoman green. Who raised an extraordinary amount of money. And i think both of these are telling signs that are trouble for the republican party. And i think it's a very indication. The republican party is trap skill in trump's trying to finish with maggie haberman. There are more signs this week talking about prosecutors that the news is tightening at least around the associates of president trump. Here in manhattan in manhattan case as we understand it. What they're trying to do is squeeze ellen weisselberg alum weisberg is the longtime trump executive. Who knows where. All of the finances have been over decades. He worked for fred trump. not just donald trump. what they're trying to do is squeeze him now. whether that's successful. I think is a very open question whether their case has much more to it I think we will find a former daughter-in-law cooperating. They've got a former daughter-in-law cooperating. They have subpoenaed several financial records. You know they are talking to any number of people they're going through donald trump's taxes which are millions of pages so this is going to take a little bit of time but it is absolutely clear that the investigation is accelerating and every move and has made so far. Looks as if he's going to make a case is all we have time for today. Thank you very much. And if you take jennifer granholm. Gop senator roger wicker up next. Stay with us.

"I mean you didn't have that clear rejection here. In in two thousand twenty s did forty years earlier. The poppy reagan. What forty states. I mean in one thousand nine hundred eighty so it was pretty clear but look. Here's what republicans need to do way lose. Elections is to talk about the past. The way us elections is to look in the rear view mirror and act that way. Voters want you talking about the future. We need to stop attacking each other and we need to talk about the future in contrast ourselves to the democrats and if president trump is able to figure out how to do that great. Join the chorus. But but if he isn't now we're only with some only eleven weeks in so i'm not ready to just say this is the way it's going to be for the next two years. But if he's not able to do that that he's going to diminish himself in the future rose the poetry. We know that people want his endorsement. When you're up on capitol every day. How much talk is there among the public about. President trump. I would say it's split. I think right now. The challenge for the republican party is. How do you reset in this moment. Is this time after. You've already lost the white house after you lost the senate. Is this a time where you try and figure out. Who is the next leader going forward. And i think that republicans are split and we saw that in the aftermath the impeachment trial over the legacy of donald trump and his role in the party. Going forward. i don't think anyone is surprised to see. Trump's comments on mcconnell after he said that he was morally responsible for the violence that occurred on january six. The question i think is here with the republican party. How do you get them all together before. Twenty twenty two and before two thousand twenty four. Say one thing is john. Bainer has a book out. And i think there's a parable house palmer house speaker. He talked about kind of galvanizing. What would be the tea party and taking back control and then you get eaten by it. And that's exactly what's happened to the republican party with donald trump mitch mcconnell and the rest of the leadership thought they could use donald trump for their own advantages. And now they're beaten being eaten by a and that baynes experienced that he talks about in. The book of what's happened to the republican party with fox and being taken over by the party is exactly what's happened to the rest of the party with donald trump and they cannot shake him and it's gonna be a problem for them because it is going to be constantly his grievances about the past and has nothing to do with the american people. One of president trump's former president trump's top accolades and the house mad gates facing role at trouble house ethics committee opening up an investigation into this week. It turns out. The one of his associates in florida may be turning against him in the sex trafficking. Case gates defiant. So when you see the leaks in the lies and the falsehoods and the smears when you see the anonymous sources and insiders forecasting my demise know this. They aren't really coming for me. They're coming for you. I'm just in the way. Maggie haberman having a hard time figuring out who the you is. This is the donald trump playbook on what you say when you are under investigation. That's what we heard trump say over and over again. Over the course of four years you is supposed to be his district. I would note. He remains very popular in his district. It is a very Very trumpy district but he has no one in congress for not no one almost no one who really wants to stand with him right now. He has very few defenders Former president trump is not defending him despite his year. You're in the new york. Times have been deep dive into this case. Explain what's at issue here short so the issue is a question of whether gates working with this friend who you mentioned this former tax collector named joel greenberg whether they basically were involved sex trafficking and there was a question of whether gates paid for sex and whether he had sex with a minor seventeen year old and he has denied. Both of those things in it is important to note that but greenberg you said earlier is very likely to take a plea based on what prosecutors have said and what his lawyer has said own lawyer said matt gaetz should not be feeling very comfortable. That strongly indicates that he is going to try to help himself with his prison term. By cooperating on something about gates again we. There's a lot we still don't know about this investigation but this investigation began under former president. Trump disa- gates has been describing this as a liberal witch hunt. This started under. Bill barr reporting that he tried to get a preemptive pardon as well. Rachel scott as maggie points not a lot of defenders for it's in congress would not much criticism or at least public criticism from republicans either. Yeah i think it's notable on both sides here what we are not hearing from republicans. You don't have anyone in republican leadership rushing to the defense of matt gaetz. You don't have anyone coming out and saying that this is wrong. That he should be removed from these committees. It's basically like this. Wait and see approach. Let us wait and see how this all sort of plays out. I mean republicans are coming back along with democrats to capitol hill this week. They're going to be pressed on this. They're going to have to enter into this ad. This ethics investigation sort of unfold. Who look what. I've learned over seven years. As a federal prosecutor is the investigation will yield what it will yield and we won't have to speculate anymore if greenberg winds up cooperating. We're going to know that we're gonna hear what he's got to say. We're gonna be able to evaluate the evidence when it comes forward and whatever matt gates said in his speech about you and thereafter you not me no thereafter..

I'm looking forward to getting some sleep. I think I i don't. I don't have clarity on what i'm going to do next but i am. I am looking forward to getting some sleep.

Team but I i had felt an obligation to see this through to the end. I don't know that would have changed if he had won and if he had one was going to be.

"The republican party. It's going to make him probably the the most influential After the fact president. That that i can think of i mean the closest that would that would come as in the last twenty five years would be bill clinton and it took him a couple of years until he started really getting back into the political arena. George w bush Left the stage very quickly. President obama was photographed very happily smiling. And i think it was parasailing in the days right after he left the white house. That's not what you're going to see. Donald trump do. He's not just going to quietly exit well if he's using money for his political action committee for his pack and he can use that money to pay off his own expenses. Legal fees may be campaign expenses But he's asking for the money so that he can take back the presidency He's kind of is he scamming. His own followers is people. There's no question that he's misleading people. And and and some of his advisers believed he would eventually pay a price for that but so far. There's no evidence of it i. There's there's no question that he is misleading people. Is there any penalty for that. Is that legal. I mean is there like truth in advertising or no. Because i don't know how you would prove that he doesn't really believe this right and i think that once he's out of office they'll change the pitch is You would think that there would be some political cost to it but so far. I'm not seeing that. Well see. that's so interesting though. Because trump at this point is a loser he lost the election. He's lost all of his court battles in trying to overturn the results of the election. What insights do you have about the power. He still has over the republican party. Because you're you're saying he's still going to have a lot of control. Probably more than any other. Previous president has had the terry the second biggest vote-getter in history was donald trump. The first was joe biden. That's a substantial number To head off into the sunset with this president has made clear over time that he loved hearing about how his endorsements impacted republican primaries I believe he wants to continue throwing his influence around in republican primaries. And you're gonna see early tests of that and twenty twenty two He has this massive data lists of supporters. This email. list that he can. He can blast out appeals to He likes having power almost everything about donald trump for you know. Fifty years at this point has been about power and dominance and he's not going to easily give it up when he gets pushed about it with people he's you know he says. My people expect this base wants me to fight Whether that's actually what he thinks or not. He knows that he is a group of millions of people and is at the full. Seventy four million. Who voted on the republican line. Probably not but it is a substantial segment of that group. That will go with him and so if he sets out when he leaves office and not just tries to be influential but indicates he's running for president again which he has told many many people he's going to do that is essentially going to freeze the republican field. Because it's going to be very hard for other candidates to say they will be the person to carry on donald trump's legacy if if donald trump is standing on fieldstone..

"Okay. We're here with maggie haberman a very good friend of mine and the most excellent beat reporter of all time with the most thankless job in the world which is covering the trump white house I will say that. You don't have to maggie The key why don't you give us a lay of the land of what's happening right now. I mean because it's like this morning. I woke up and there were more crazy tweets all labeled etc. So give us where we are at this moment. Short will still. Thanks for having me karen. Thanks for the very kind introduction. The leaving your words not mine About the thanklessness of the beat. Look the president. is aware based on what a number of aids told him that. This path forward is slim to none in terms lawsuits. He wants to continue the fight Vote what has been interesting. Today is even as he is doing these tweets. You have national security adviser robert. O'brien give a speech of some kind where he appeared to acknowledge. That joe biden is is the next president In he said if it if it if indeed the president and it looks like it's headed that way there will be a professional. He didn't say peaceful professional transfer of power. So what my senses from people. I've spoken to around the building and taking all that into consideration is the president is going to continue to say this was rigged. He's going to continue to try to de-legitimize this election. Just as he tried to de-legitimize the one he won in two thousand sixteen and he will be doing this all the way through january on his way out the door but i do believe he will leave and then i think at some point in mid december you will see. The certification process happened and the official transition begins. That is very delayed from what you would normally see in a race where one candidate won the electoral college so decisively. But there is a growing sense within the white house that There is a divergence between reality. And where the president wanted to scott. I don't. I'm the thing that strikes me is. Just how powerful republicans perceive the president will be post the transition. Because i'm just shocked at the silence is deafening that. Nobody wants to acknowledge on the republican side. What has actually happened here are you. Do you have any sense for why it is. They are so concerned about coming out and just stating what. The reality is what is going on year. Six got a couple of things. One thing i would say you are seeing some cracks in that i agree that it is mostly holding But you have seen pat toomey. Senator from pennsylvania say it appears to be over. You have seen mike dewine. The governor of ohio suggest it is time to move on as he is watching the spike in corona virus cases across the country. And that's where his concern really is is how the transition works in terms of management of this virus but for the most part you have a republican party that president trump has largely remade in his image. He has brought in millions of new voters. Who did not vote. Before he has increased his own vote share over twenty sixteen by a lot and you had republicans down. Ballot do pretty well. Which in part not entirely but in part is because the president actually despite all of the dust and drama him has helped rebuild the republican party in terms of finances and in terms of sort of cohesion. They are afraid of upsetting their voters. It's not just fear of the man. It's fear of what the man will do that. The voters will respond to right. And so you have seen the president. Tell his voters. This thing has raged. this thing is not valid. This thing shouldn't end. There are millions of people who believe that even though the president by counts is aware that what he is saying. is at odds with the truth. So when you say. They're aware that he's aware of it. I you know. I'm reading these stories. Not just from you from lots of people and like a lot of reporting on it as he is aware. But how is it that you can that that had managed to deal with that when you're covering this when when you have you're not going to say what you say off the record but it sounds like a lot of people in the white house they're telling you well we know we lost but we're just going to keep going on with this charade because it's good for either fundraising or creates division. What's the endgame was suffering. This bakara i would say that. That actually makes us sound a little more like a will. Heed strategy is which is the president refusing to acknowledge what's happening and ranked rubin having to work around that right. What i think he's doing is he's in the negotiating. Stay dry with himself with the country. This is basically about making himself understand Did that he has to eventually leave and he is trying to get what in his mind to be clear. Don't hear this as defensive. Just saying what's happening in his mind. Some some the best deal that he can get whether that is For some you know paid digital competitor to fox news which he's openly talking about whether it is running again twenty twenty four which he is talking about a lot you know whether it is trying to ensure that he and his family. Don't face prosecutorial scrutiny. Beyond they're already facing. I think all of these things are in his head. And i think that having things work out well for him in some way that he can define as a win is what the end game is. But it isn't necessarily what you and i would consider a win. What do you think he does what he does post. Nra twenty. i. What is if you had to bet what do think does bet. He's going to say he's running again. I think that it's just the quickest and easiest whether he actually desert doesn't i think he will form a committee I think it will allow him to travel. It will allow him to pay for things like rallies that he loves doing. And then i think maybe he'll get a contributor ship of some kind somewhere. It's very hard to be a contributor while you are actually running for president. Other presidential candidates have discovered that when they tried doing both with say fox news But i think the easiest path to him to freezing the field and staying relevant with voters announcing he's running again and then that complicates things. Not just for my pants. Not just for nikki. Haley but for a pretty broad range of republicans who have been waiting for this moment to run themselves. Twenty twenty four. So what did they do nothing. They don't do anything i mean. There's there's nothing they can do other than wait and see what happens Or they can try to get some separation from him about what the party needs to look like..
NYT's Maggie Haberman has a deal for a Trump book
"New york. Times reporter maggie. Haberman signed a book. Deal yeah earlier. Negotiated by the dc based javelin agency of course since negotiate everything now to write a trump book. That's gonna come out in twenty twenty two and chamberlain asks us. Is that too late. Will we still care how much goods because she have held back and saved for the book is twenty twenty two too late. I mean it's less than ideal. Delivery dates on books on book contracts or sometimes not really realistic in either. I mean in in in either direction but it does feel like this is one where they would have a pretty good handle on it right. I don't know. I think. I think there are diminishing returns for anybody that's gonna come out after february frankly january probably and and you know at some point you just you gotta be betting on getting the book right. You know Having the best name having the best the best angle the best the most comprehensive lok whatever in two thousand twenty twos not that far away. I think we can all have pretty you know visceral memories of what four years ago felt like so. I'm not sure that eighteen months is gonna make a lot of difference. She might be the exception just because she's such a big name and you could sell it right as this is the defended of book about donald trump in the white house and hovering donald trump in the white house especially she includes parts about herself and i say that as a journalism person media personally. That's kind of what. I wanna read within. This is what it was like to cover donald trump. I don't know if she'd be interested sharing that. But like that part of it is fascinating to me and it does bring up. The bigger question doesn't have how much donald trump content especially in the form of big dollar. Books is going to be an appetite for after january. What do you what do you think about that. Well i mean if he stays in the media. I you know to whatever degree depends on if he's so running for office he's if he's teasing another run for office you know he'll he'll still be around. I think the appetite will always be there even as he even if he becomes more less serious. I think the appetite in some ways sort of grows right that like the jokes get a little bit easier but I mean specific to the haberman. Dang one could. It's going to be the book right. It'll be the the it it probably going to be helpful to wait for it to die that. Wait for the rest of the books. Die down a little bit. And then you know there's there's every reason to imagine that there would be like an accompanying documentary or whatever. I mean. there could be any sort of other major thing that was kind of coming along with it And that this would sort of be the like you said it's this. This is the official telling. This is what really matters is the only this is the only thing you ever need to read again but what will be the i mean. I think there's people are going to beat. I mean we're going to be getting trump white house memoirs for the next year. You know whether or not they people buy them or they make a lot of. I don't know what the appetite is going to be the publishers appetite. I'm sure we'll just keep turning them out. If nothing else i mean. Listen like jason miller writing about how awesome. The trump years were is probably going to sell more copies than like a reporter's book about the first year of the biden administration. So oh yeah. So i mean the appetite. Comparatively is still going to be reasonably strong.

"He loses his job. What does he have left bashing the media and? You. Can you can live for a long time as a conservative activists on that base anger by stoking anger growth, the media, and that's bad also but by us being outraged and take taking ourselves out of the job that we do to become spokespeople when activists I think that only helps it and incentivizes people that continued doing it i. see bashing the media's Branson. Really Comedians like carrot top. Extend your career for a long after you've ceased to produce anything useful. That's an insult to Branson and I like. I like. I like Branston. We're listening to my September two thousand seventeen interview with Maggie Haberman and David Farren hold we're GONNA. Take another break. Now, we'll be back soon. All right. I'm going to finish up some questions in the audience. We have a Mike and I really wish you would ask questions. These are really the top reporters covering president of where are we right now healthcare look where we now because it seems like like some I think Lauren Deluca in in twitter wrote it feels like years in a week it does but you know something and I said this before and then I didn't follow up on those too busy of wedding one of your other questions but the the. It things have actually slowed down a little bit because there's only so long you can sustain this kind of you know light with no actual productivity healthcare. I don't see how it happens I. Think McCain belted almost certain death blow I think McCain has decided that he wants to go out his own way from his Senate so that then puts the focus on tax reform, which is what trump was telling people back when the first bill got pulled that he wished he had done and so. I, think that is likelier to pass because I think there's more incentive to pass it but not if it's going to be passed with some of the provisos that they're talking about right now, which is like taxing people's 401k is I mean there's there's all sorts of things that will bank for members of Congress in certain districts. It's GonNa to make this like a guarantee loser if they vote for. This they might as well say goodbye if you don't see tax reform pass than I, think that you were going to see an increased number of congressional retirements and a lot more criticism from Republicans trump of trump not more criticism I. do I mean I I just think it. They keep saying that and then don't but and then the investigation there there've been a few I think the investigation They're not moving They're not moving together, but they're moving parallel tracks Muller's offices in pretty close contact with the congressional investigators and Muller now has seventeen people working for him. He's. Got A grand jury look they've told we reported that they hold Paul Manafort is going to be indicted. Now does that mean he's going to be indicted related to something to the campaign? I have no idea that actually is not my sense yet but these these special counsel investigations that are open ended as the Clintons know very well are are very fraught. And if anyone has finances that I think are they would not like having somebody poking through Donald. Trump. I. Think. punting trump is sort of devolved. So much of the actual govern to Congress I think that's why it slowdown because congresses even scared paranoid to Ram through at the last minute before a deadline congress is slow because there's so many people. So I think that's part of the slowdown, is that trump himself seems to have surrendered so much of the decision making authority to Congress and the investigation, the investigation. Complete bystander to that I sit near the people that report on it and I read about it a lot. It seems like it's picking up steam Maggie's right like. What Muller by firing? Komi. He gave Muller License to look at Everything Donald Trump had done since birth. And that is Donald Trump has spent his entire life and some of his charitable donations trying to avoid a lot of donations he gave. From his foundation where the police athletic. League. Of New, York City, which is the charity of the DA. So. He spent a lot of time trying to avoid people looking into his. Into his personal finances and. Because he didn't think his has now brought that on himself. Yeah and and to your point, I mean so much of so much of all of this stuff with him is self inflicted. It is always reverse engineering, some other thing and so he has gotten himself into a bind and it is. You know in the in the World Donald Trump. Nothing is ever Donald Trump's fault. So does everybody else's fault but I don't think this is going to end happily for some people how broad that will be i. don't know whether there's actually evidence of him having knowledge about Russia I don't know but but he continues to act like somebody who is concerned, which is one of the things that perplexes people in the White House and his own some of his lawyers more than anything. He does seem unconcerned questions from the audience. Steve Amos and thank you so much for all the work you've done. Question Your Lens. How do you interpret the rhetoric of trump as relates to North Korea and the reason I ask? Is a lot of the other things could take a couple of decades but whatever he does we'll work out. But not a nuclear war. So from what you've observed for the last many years, how would you really Chirp it off his rhetoric next question? Sorry for guys. It's a great question to which I don't have a great answer unfortunately. The Way I interpreted is that when he came into office, this was the one issue that Obama had told him that he was the most worried about and I think trump has remained the most worried about it since then I think it is just kind of lodged in his brain. In a certain way and he knows he has no good options. His advisers have asked him to stop saying things like rocket man which trump amuses himself with but which don't really have much effect he and Kim Jong UN are well-matched on insults, but they're not well matched on strategy and sort of understanding of each other on chess game I don't have a good answer in terms of where this goes. I think that my understanding from my colleagues is the day charm. McMaster is actually been more vocal about being aggressive with North Korea than I had anticipated because I had thought he would be among those who would be just based on his history.

"But one of the. One of the one of the things that I was thinking about The you said that was really interesting about the whole like the way you get accepted in society is you know give money to charity and has definitely true in new. York. And there were times when he did do that, he made donations to the gay men's health crisis in in the eighties because that was socially. And that was seen as the social a good thing to do. But it's when you were talking I kept thinking about this story about Mike. Bloomberg. From two thousand and one when he was running for mayor and it was in the times and it was one of the best stories I've ever read about him. Written. In like May of one or something, and the lead was Mike Bloomberg showing up at a party in the late eighties or nineties and seeing the invitation list remember Mike Numbers from Boston and he sees the names hosted by you know Ron Lauder and this one and one and he turned to whoever he was with. He said, how do I get my name on this and that's how he became a huge philanthropist but there's two ways to do that. You can actually give your money if you have money to give and then there's trump who has not really given up his money and of whom there have been huge questions about how much money he actually has. An anyway. So that's the but because of that, because of how New Yorkers have been written about in the times in part that is part of his sort of obsession with the paper. His first his first big interview was after he was with US came any came to our offices. We didn't go to him right but you have very good sources. I'm guess he's one you have you maintain good sources at the same time that they hate you I don't talk about sourcing. Though they do. But like one example of the way that he. In public squares the media and in private craves their approval was. Remember four healthcare bills ago when the house hold its healthcare bill dramatically trump at that point it was really into the hate the media hate the media, the media charitable who did he call? He called Kosta and you to tell you trump had a piece of music didn't People's The House was going to healthcare bill and the two people he told The Washington Post in your time to be clear I had asked earlier in the day and I'm pretty sure Bob did to if we could talk to him, it was as if we were on speed dial however he did. Finish up talking about that concept of. We haven't gotten the Hillary yet but that's okay She wrote a book about it and you can read her book read the book. It's actually terrific book. It's angry which I like. It's an angry book, which is always a good book as far as I'm concerned. Let's talk about the attacks on the media. Do you think? I mean obviously as a meeting go of course, it matters but is it more? What does it feel like right now because now it seems to work among the base because he did it did you do it last night again? Did He. To Talk. I think he did NFL he did nfl John McCain and someone else I don't know it does it does it work do you think it's effective or does it make you scared or because I know there's a lot. There is a lot of Pearl clutching in the media like I can't believe he said that at one point there was there was a whole bunch of reporters I was in in Washington, they were talking about this and they kept saying I can't believe he said that I can't believe you said that and I was like fuck sake he says it all the time. Like stop like know sort of being indignant and angry and self righteous seems to get nobody anywhere essentially now it's kind of terrible. It's sort of the In in in broadcast news like if people have not seen ever held up holds up. So well, the best journalism movie that I've ever seen from the nineteen eighties and there's a scene where one of the one of the new anchors the pretty anchor has filmed an he's he's he's confronting a military general and he keeps in the clip of him confronting the Guy and Joan cusack says I love that you left that in and Albert Brooks says yes. Yes. Let's never forget we're the real story not them and so some of the you know Oh my God he's just being so harsh on the media like nobody nobody gives a shit. The media being treated poorly and I think that you know. Our rating less than Congress in public approvals. Now, it's a pretty close. Congress is hard to do. Maybe It's not it's not far. So I think it works for his base. What I do think is that to David's point about the public screaming, you know I hate the media and then hello is that There are some of his supporters who aren't really in on the joke. and. What worries me is is two things what worries me as people taking individual actions against reporters. That are potentially dangerous because there have been an increase in threats I think made against people. The other thing that worries me is there's this. Crackdown on transparency the AP did this story the other day that was really important about. You know state to state. You are seeing an effort to respond less to foia requests you are seeing information provided less. We know that this administration has scrubbed websites has not answered foy is is not releasing White House visitor logs just and and I'm not even sure that they're holding onto the visitors logs. That's what scares me more right. The lack of transparency which is I think ultimately what the screaming about the press heights some the idea that and the same time it's hard to not do a better job. It's the I I like it better when people aren't talking I'm like you know what's better I don't. We don't write this. Isn't about we didn't. We don't need a hug like that's not what we're in this business for well affect people but go ahead. Well. Some people in the to hug. But I don't. I also think that like people constantly posting. instagram videos of themselves asking questions of here's what I did in the briefing room like I. Don't think that that helps any of us just don't I feel like. The sort of outrageous. It's important. I think it's a bad thing that he's attacking the media and undermining our credibility. The response from us to your point cannot be outraged can't we make ourselves the story and this sort of I feel like the. Bashing the media you know how like country music stars get like an extra ten, ten years on their life when they go to. Branson washed up and go to Branson, you can last some of the ten years a. Bashing the media does run out of everything David Clarke from. Milwaukee Sheriff people died in his jail the rest of the county's turned against him..

"Now on apple podcast or wherever you listen. So. Essentially, both of you just fell into this like by accident and because losers essentially. We work. So Ankara for having us. Now, you're those important voters in the world for now. You essentially fell into this. Win Win to the penny dropped that maybe you were on to something here. Now let's start with you mega you. You've been covering this. Huge admiration because you cover it doggedly beat report. It's like you're like a true beat reporter in terms of how much you covered. One point you had like nine bylines in in the New York Times one evening and I was like, how does she do that? What is going on but you see how do you look at how you cover it when it started to become clear that this might be something well so to. Take that as two separate questions. One is in terms of when it became clear that this might be something It was after the Paris terrorist attacks in two thousand, fifteen in November. When his numbers didn't dip. He said all kinds of intemperate things that was actually when he made his big Muslim ban pitch Whenever he focuses on Daca or the border wall on the border wall is a little different but the the big belief among some of his critics is that those are the issues that were real drivers in the primary campaign. Actually his his Muslim attacks were the ones that were real driver's because if you look at the worker this election and think about this a lot especially because one of the things that I covered in New York, city at the post, and then at the daily news was the nine eleven attacks because down there and then rebuilding for three years. So if you look at the arc this election, it has a lot of connectivity to. What happened that day and then the aftermath and the country going a little crazy afterwards but it was it was in that month. When nothing changed I, mean his ceiling, his flora rather was so hard And nothing was changing in the primary. There were seventeen candidates almost the entire time I think that there were sixteen eventually I? Guess it was Perry who dropped out I right So then there were sixteen but the game theory that was supposed to take place where this one was going to get this person's three percent, and then this was going to happen none of that ever happened. So he was just able to keep going and I did this story with my colleague Tom Kaplan about Evangelical self-described Evangelical voters who. Were backing trump the reasons that they gave. We spoke to a bunch of people who've been part of times Paul who described themselves as evangelicals and the reasons that a lot of them gave for why they were with trump were so clear that a lot of issues that we think of is typical drivers especially Republican, primary social issues. I mean, realistically, these had not been big drivers should last two cycles but. People were so pissed off about Obamacare I mean the thing I kept hearing over and over again, every time I called someone was my son's premiums went up to fourteen hundred dollars a month he can't afford this. Because of the affordable care act and you know or things just have to change and I hate Hillary and these were basically the the two reasons. So it was clear that something was going on and then your your question about covered is beat reporter. I was trained by this Guy Greg Birnbaum who is now at NBC editor for a really long time. WHO's manager the Post news manager again at politico and his whole thing is just don't get beat beat beat right so like I literally look at everything like tiny little increments and I do have this problem. Sometimes I have to trouble stepping back and seeing how everything that's into a bigger picture because I cover everything like like I am on like some kind of cops and crime beat where it's like Donald Trump said today police said But that is basically my approach because he also he says so much that like especially, the campaign that was one of his tricks was that he would say seven different things and people would either hear what they wanted to hear or nothing specifically would stick whereas with Hillary Clinton the emails were basically like the one thing that everybody remember or would here that is still how I cover him but it's much harder to do that with the White House that's just different right and so you do Y-. Get to it. It's. About the incremental ism of how it's covered. So it never you never see the larger picture that everyone gets on that. that. Wheel essential. Part Way my my my frequent collaborator Glenn. thrush is a lot. Better at that than. I. Am. So he often pulls me off the wheel and you know parks me nicely on a piece of newspaper and let's run and Nibble on some food I. DO force myself to take breaks and sit back and kind of look at the pattern what I'm what I'm looking at or look back and say how does this relate to? Something he didn't the campaign You know even something simple like I did a story a couple of weeks ago about his opioids commission and their first report they did this report and he announced a national emergency but not really because the government isn't actually declared a national emergency on and so but that just disappeared under a wave of you know North Korea and A million other tweets we'll get to that idea of the exhaustion level that you must be exhausted in. We're all Austin because of you. Thank you. I'm sorry. You could all be sleeping. Yeah. So. You had a different approach you focused in on sherline. You have a book about this now wh, why did you then focus intently on this? What did you think it meant? Well first of all I could explain it. And he just doesn't give what he says he gives right pretty much. The short version of what happened with this charity was of his Veterans Promise. Was it started out him saying I was he was he had gotten six million dollars for veterans of which one million dollars was his own money. And he's going to give it away and I just wanted to find out if he'd done it and he had basically it took forever to figure that out finally in May it's been. Searching. For evidence anybody gotten the money that trump said he was going to give veterans specifically and then Corey Lewandowski, who was trump's campaign manager now a Harvard fellow. Called and said, I can tell you for sure Donald Trump is giving away his one million dollars to veterans but I can't tell you. Who got it or win on? What amounts all secret doll totally secret. And that's you can't take that for an answer..

"If you're going to profile of someone, a political candidate should look beforehand at the polling to see where that person is and if next to their name and the polls like not even at number just like an asterisk or like a should not read a profile of that person. Okay. I did I like those stories in that you were trying to find different ways of telling a political profile story and try and find meaning in these people. Right, you get to know them and like try to communicate that to people. But also to try to find a candidate people think they're bored by or not interested in one of my favorite stories about that was Mike Huckabee right. Briefly had a time running a twenty sixteen candidate. How do you profile Mike? Huckabee. Well, he's using if not appalling go ahead. So we just read all of his books and read a lot of interviews and the whole profile was just a list of things that Mike Huckabee had condemned as immoral over his life was like one hundred and eighty things. That's why you could see over his life. Remember he was the skinny governor for awhile sort of a progressive Republican governor of Arkansas, and then he was like fat and conservative again. Thinks wait was when he his political leanings depending on his weight. The things that he condemned changed over time like there was a time when he was condemning grits and gravy grits and gravy as bad. You gotta eat vegetables America should be healthy and then once he became this sort of like screw you Michelle Obama I'm gonNA eat grits and gravy candidate three years later he was like I hate people tell me I can't eat grits and gravy right? So, just try to find a way to tell us what Mike Huckabee just in the timeline of things that he was condemning. Those people were well great experiences covering them nobody read those stories and so I got basically put on the trump story is a one day thing in February caucus day they said look here's a Guy Donald trump. He's been very three times been cover playboy twice. He's about to win Mike Huckabee's Iowa we thought in the end he didn't win. Torn Isla goes there with him on caucus day just sort of watch what he does how he interacts with voters, and that's when I saw him this weird thing. He gave a big check to stop this rally and gave a big check from his foundation. One of those big check look. Like a golf tournament size check right. You could see it from the back of the room. And it made me say like, what are you doing? Can you give away checks from your foundation in the middle of a political event? No actually no, you can. But also where's the rest of the money? You know he said he'd raised six million dollars I give away a little bit of it. I'll just call the trump campaign and say, hey, where's six dollars for veterans who to give the rest of it too, and I thought that would be like a two or three days story.

"Then it was a two year enter and doing the same thing and. The only way I got off might cops. Job You guys probably know this The editors that decide to take you off my cops work during the day and don't ever see you. If you screw up. If you do a good job, they don't really pay attention to you. And so the only way I was able to get off. My cops was just luck that there was someone the paper that they wanted to quit, and they wanted to give her the worst job at the newspaper. So she would quit and that was my job. So they to get out of it. So that's how I ended up working on during the day I could still be there at night at that stroke of good luck and bad luck not happen. Yeah. So you. So you moved where from there inside the post so I covered the police during the day like the police chief and done all kinds of things. The environment was the New England bureau chief for a year and I've been politics about two thousand and ten, two, thousand, ten so. What moved you politics. I was covering the environment head for a long time and felt like I had two thousand ten. There had been a giant coal mine explosion in West Virginia that I spent a lot of time covering and there had been the deepwater horizon or bill that I spend a lot of time on and it felt like the environment beat was kind of at the middle of everything that year in a way that it would not be again. and. So they offered me a chance to go cover politics and at the time the post was sort of shrinking. We were we were unsure about our future, but it seemed like the thing that we were going to do the last thing we were going to do with politics and so if you wanted a future at the post if you wanted to be the Place where we thought the middle of our mandate that was politics. So I said yes and moved over I covered Congress and then covered government wastes by the presidential campaigns, all kinds of things within politics, and how did you move into what you're doing? So because what you're doing is really Wonka's shrill, it's a it's more data journalism, the idea that you actually do. Up, quite when Maggie does in the same way but. I mean. It kind of by accident I had done these stories about government weeks. It's been years writing about government waste and. Say Price that HHS for example, right now I'm sorry I. Appreciate. The political stories about price at hhs have been amazing things like a long story about that National Raisin Reserve. To know, we had a national, we do have a national strategic raisin reserve. And Raisins. Yeah. It's it's an amazing story. That's pretty then I'd like a giant. Cavern under Pennsylvania where the government keeps twenty eight thousand file cabinets full of personnel records. Things where I'm writing about an agency doing something stupid and they're hostile to don't WanNa, help me, and so I got practice sort of building building a story around the outside. So like the underground mine in Pennsylvania the the people who run that wasteful thing don't want to talk about it in had to go find all the people who used to work there and their friends build the story without the cooperation and then come. Back to the agency and say look I know everything about your weird mind. Now I'm gonNA write about it. You can be in the story out of the story right that actually turned out to be helpful covering trump because his his reaction. A lot of these things was to say no and we'll tell you the only person who knows the facts about me is me if I don't WanNA cooperate then I won't you're screwed. and. For me it was that was good preparation to say in. There is a way to build to tell the truth about you without you is just a lot more work so. We've covered the presidential campaign in two, thousand, fifteen but twenty, fifteen I really wanted to cover Canada's you get close to people. You could really see of course I didn't want to be in a big. You Know Covering Hillary Clinton where there's a crowd of two hundred borders. Which means that basically I covered losers covered like, Bobby Jindal Rick Perry. Rick Perry actually flew to profile about him. I flew to Missouri to see him give a speech and he dropped out in the middle of the speech that I saw him hat. Good. Torah, I saw him. This just like shed no in the middle of the speech, breaking it down, trying to think what this means his political future and then people other reporters have been given the advanced copy. scrolling down and you can hit and be like, oh no dropping out a page seventy drops out. So anyway, that was that we didn't scroll down. I was really looking at in front understand doing real time. Rick Santorum Word Places in Iowa Rick Santorum last year where he'd go to meet a crowd like two people. One of them didn't know he was coming and it was just they're eating ice cream. showed up. So. All my candidates said basically kaput by the time that Iowa caucuses came right everybody had profile was gone and they said, well, are we have trump report I'm just curious what you learn from. The lessons one. If you're going to profile, this is particularly a bobby jindal lesson..

O. declared the corona virus a global pandemic president trump sat in the oval office behind the resolute desk at nine PM and the klieg lights came on and the teleprompter started rolling and he gave an address to the nation my fellow Americans tonight I want to speak with you about our nation's unprecedented response to the corona virus outbreak that started in China and is now spreading throughout the world for the first time he acknowledged that this could impact get the older people the highest risk is for elderly population with underlying health conditions the elderly population must be very very careful he talked about a ban on most travel from Europe to keep new cases from entering our shores we will be suspending all travel from Europe to the United States for the next thirty days the new rules will go into effect Friday at midnight but the address which was brief as oval office address is usually are was seen as a disaster why the president looked uncomfortable he stumbled over the teleprompter which he never does well laugh I am confident that by county and continuing to take these tough measures we went it was riddled with errors including about the travel ban these prohibitions will not only apply to the tremendous amount of trade and cargo but various other things as we get approval he suggested that it would apply to cargo and trade it didn't and those mistakes send the stock markets plummeting and aids started realizing that there had to be a major course correction or the presidency could be threatened and the president realized this too so on March seventeenth we saw a pretty different tone from president trump as he talked about this virus will be involved in the defense production act just in case we needed last week I signed an emergency declaration under the Stafford act he described it still reeling he suddenly seemed willing to answer questions without being combative just very soon for America to be on a wartime footing in terms of fighting the fire I do I actually do I look at it that way because you know he described himself as a wartime president he seemed to be taking this seriously and all of the ways that a nation usually looks for a leader to take such a crisis seriously very tough situation here you have to do things you have to you have to close parts of an economy that six weeks ago were were the best they've ever been with the best economy we've ever had and then one day you have to close it down in order to defeat this enemy and but we're doing it and we're doing it well and I said to the American people have been incredible this is dramatically different from what we had heard just a few days earlier how then do we get to today where one week later this situation with this pandemic has only gotten dramatically worse the virus is exploding in places like New York the number of infections and deaths are rising across the country and yet the president's message has now kind of reverted back to where it was weeks and weeks ago is languages changed his overall comportment and the words he's using they've all kind of return to a period where he was not taking this as seriously there have been people in the president's circle who this entire time even as the president changed his tone still thought that some of the moves that the government was making or too aggressive and those aids started late last week talking about the fact that they might want to revisit some of these guidelines and ease up on some of them for targeted groups after this initial fifteen day period had ended which is going to be March thirtieth the president started getting the message in earnest on Sunday night this is something that he needed to worry about that there might not be an economy to return to the country was fully back to normal and so he tweeted on Sunday night the the Q. R. couldn't be worse than the disease and that was the beginning of a massive shift of the federal government which had moved toward aggressive measures to mitigate this virus and its spread to suddenly suggesting that they could see the end
Trump Has Given Unusual Leeway to Fauci, but Aides Say He's Losing His Patience
"In The New York Times today how trump has given unusual leeway to value but aides say he is losing his patience so they are now this will be Maggie Haberman quoting anonymous sources saying that president trump is not happy without you because now she has been blunt about when he thinks that trump is not saying the right thing according to The New York Times the president has resisted preferring the virus is the kind of friend describe I found you know the public health experts in his effort to create a positive vision of a future where the virus is less of a danger critics have accused trump of giving false hope Dr fashion the president publicly disagreed on how long it will take for a coronavirus vaccine to become available and whether an antimalarial drug chloroquine help with those with the could help those thank you form of the virus patches made clear he does not think the drug necessarily hold the potential trump says it does and then the article continues talking about how felt she and trump are bit at odds and and basically in your times pushing on this sort of gash trying to trying to make it bleed again that you can just current role as in as the aids epidemic was exploding and Reagan was paying a little attention yes you ever cook the Surgeon General were widely credited with spurring the Reagan administration's action against aids is recognized from the need for praising the president's presence in with audiences friendly to him now she has been complimentary doctor found you savvy not just at the end of the inner workings of the government about the news media that covers it but in the past few weeks White House officials have become more concerned that he's criticizing the president again none of these officials speak on record president trump himself is ready trespassing is listening to Patrick but that's not stopping the media from pushing on this as hard as they can Chris Cuomo on CNN says he's worried about doctor Faustus future in the White House not seeing Dr Anthony Fauci onstage today worried me and it should worry you you know the doctor now he's a member of the coronavirus task force director of the National Institute of allergy and infectious diseases but more than that he's become like America's grandpa he gives conscience in comfort and fact to this country and uniquely so more people are getting sick I do not see how we get through this any better or faster without Toni found G. present an up front okay well he was in there yesterday because sometimes you actually have to do his job as opposed to just talking to you idiots in the media I mean like I'm all for fancy talking to media like I hope to have money selling some point in your future but sounds he does have like a job it's not just informing people of what is going on right and it did this whole this whole attempt to split off from from algae is so counterproductive in ridiculous fashion today blasted the media suggesting that they were attempting to liberally to divide him from president trump he's carrying on W. MEL mornings on the mall with a host of merry Walter asking county about president from fifteen day timeline he said that if it's in a time when before reassessing here's what's out you had to say that is really unfortunate I would wish that that would stop because we have a much bigger problem here then trying to point out differences there really fundamentally at the core when you look at things there are not differences the president has listened to what I have said it with the other people on the task force it said when I made recommendations he's taken them he's never counted all over with me the idea of just pitting one against the other is just not helpful I wish that would stop but we look ahead at the challenge we have to pull together to get over this thing and then of course is exactly right like in a time like this it seems like it would be a fairly good idea would it not to unite from without you and by the way fancy has that from his take my advice so who's ever birth she says I'm confident that trump is listening to the expert is the woman who's leading up as one of ours response I am confident that the president has listened to and seen all of our data as it involves I think you can see that the president over the three weeks it's been very focused on what the American people need both economically and public health wise but I think it's incumbent on every public health officials to be looking at their data and I'm very granular way to understand who's at risk who's at risk of hospitalization who's at risk of mortality how do we stop the spread and really moved to a twenty first century supercomputer in approach rather than a more generic slide rule based approach okay and and she is saying what is corrected trump listen to the right people so stop forwarding the media's agenda by by attacking a pouch on the one hand on the other hand the media needs to stop fostering this sort of discontent and again they're perfectly valid questions to be asked by the trump administration response but trying to foster sort of this personality clash with important people in the middle of pandemic the media are not doing their jobs or maybe they are they're
"Andrea Bernstein she is the Co Co host of the podcast trump inc.. And she's got a new book out. It's called American oligarchs the Kushner's trump's and the marriage of money and power. It's it's about The trump's in the KUSHNER's in marriage money power take is what this book will not make you feel better about the world crate crate. As my experience reading it did not. I did not feel more optimistic. Afterwards is I do think though it is a large segment of the last year's media psycho. We haven't actually had anyone on. Who's just sort of gone? Full trump in their reporting getting except Maggie Haberman. Of course. Yeah well I mean the thing. Is She actually hasn't gone. Full trump in her reporting she has been reporting about political corruption corruption and business in New York. For years and years she was at the observer for a very long time and now is at WNYC and that's kind of been her beat so like her beat became on this corner national story in this sort of and then you'll hear about in the interview but basically I think right after the election she felt felt like I know this world that now is everyone's world and I have some Responsibility get in there and one thing I will say about the book which is also true. The podcast is I feel like Despite everyone in the world being on this story it feels sort of random a lot of the time time and the book really grounds what is happening and how Donald Trump became president in like decades and decades of family history the and New York history and tristate history and it was the first time that it felt like cohesive to me. Well you've answered in my questions. If you're looking to answer other people's questions maybe start a queue in a newsletter with mail chimp. They make it easy to start any Dang Kinda in a newsletter. You want You won't even have to start paying until a certain number of people subscribed so dip a toe dip that. Tell Jim now. Here's Max with Andrea Bernstein. Hi Andrea Hi so great to be here. Thank you for coming to do the PODCAST. Can I say that it's the thing that the trump team has most wanted to do was to talk with you. Well I will say that That's great and a little intimidating but There's one piece of that which is not surprising. which is that so I like emails a fairmount from people who think that they would be good guests on the podcasts Taylor like I you know who I think should be on the show is meek and I got a different one from your co host? Who remained said I think she'd have Andrea on the show? But it wasn't just like hey I think should have Andrea on. It's pretty interesting stuff. She doing he had a like a real like Tower Bernstein like the nine pillars. He didn't send that to me exactly would then I followed him and was definitely. We should do this and I was like. What do you think I should ask? And then he seventy nine pillars and it's rare that someone both nominates a colleague of theirs to come on the show and has such a like a a clear way of thinking about you've never met Elliott out of the blue. I just emailed me out of the blue and then put together this thing and I think it might help us talk talk about the book a little bit. The first pillar Bernstein is Everyone wants to help you. CEOS public information officers other journalists rival outlets people on the street. Anyone could be a source. That just don't know it yet. Your job is to let them know. Yeah anybody can be a source and it is. I mean one of the interesting things about reporting on the trump's in the Kushner says they seem so distant far off there in the White House but here in in this area the New York metropolitan area. Almost everybody knows one of the families and has had a personal experience with them so in many cases this is all I had to do was tell people. I'm writing a book and people said. Oh well I happen to know so and so and maybe so and so can help you so many people were afraid to talk to me so I wouldn't say that everybody wanted to help but it's true anybody could help. That was one of the questions I had reading the book which was this is among if not the hardest beat in the world. Lots of people are covering these folks. Lots of people are trying to figure out how Donald Trump's business works and I'm interested in how you get the main figures in this story to engage gauge with you when dozens of reporters are asking these questions. And then how you find the people who no one has talked to yet and then the third part of that question I guess is is like how do you find something new when everyone's trying to find the same thing so I mean one of the things that gave me pause was not an obvious thing because is one of the ways that I have covered. Corruption is by happily looking in the dark corners where nobody else is looking when we WNYC Z.. And when I started covering the bridge gate scandal with Chris Christie I had covered transportation so when they said that they had realigned the lanes to have a traffic study. I was like that is definitely definitely not a traffic study so I knew immediately. I knew immediately that there was politics and I had covered the port quarter therapy and I knew how to extract information from them so I cry. Let's go back. Yeah how do you extract information from the Port Authority so so one of the big ways you extract information from the poor thrice by showing up so you go to the meetings and you ask the questions but also I serve. They don't like to respond to freedom of information requests but the thing about the port authority is a state agency which is controlled by two governors. So in in any situation where there is a tension. Somebody is going to want to help you. Because they think it's going to thwart their other side so that is one of the ways that there were people who were unhappy with the way the other side was doing things that they would be willing to talk but then at the end of the deaths of everybody wants to talk especially when you're an honest broker occur and they understand that you're going to be fair about things so persistence is another thing. Just sorta hanging in there until people realize you're not going away and it's better to talk to you. visit potentially naive leave question but how important how big a part of that process is being able to suss out people's motivations that way and play to them. Well I think that you know in All journalism you're always looking for where's the oversight whereas the tension. Where's the places where people might disagree? So it's one of the reasons sway former employees organizations tend to be really great sources and there's a lot of people that really know how to work-linked Dan rea well and can find out everybody that used to work at a company and I. I don't do this so much but I mean like if I work with or they'll just call a list of people you get a bunch of names in the just call call so looking at those sources of tension is one way to extract information but anyway just to get back to your main question about some six everybody. Nobody else was covering it so it wasn't my natural inclination but also I did feel like I had a long view on this world and and also because I've been covering corruption in New York and New Jersey politics and also national politics. I had covered six presidential campaign so I just felt like I knew to all the elements of this particular world so I thought okay. Even though a lot of people are looking at it I need to look at it because I have a perspective on it. That is is not precisely the same as anybody else's so that was one reason why I thought I should do it. Even though it's a sandbox at everybody is playing in but one of the things that I really discovered as I went along is that most people don't read things multiple Arabi things very quickly so you can find out so many things by reading up to the end.
Traditional and Social Media: Trump's Key to Success
"What is keeping you up at night? The most when you think about twenty twenty. What keeps me up at night is that trump has a massive structural media advantage? He has a massive state adjacent propaganda machine that pumps his message out to his voters with tremendous discipline support and Democrats have not yet figure how to counter that. This primary season is not lending itself to to our party getting out a clear alternative to Donald Trump. He's an uncanny message person every time I think he's really off on something. Then we go and test it and we find out how strong it is. I wish we had some place that was able to get out consistent message against him. Two of the most important things that Democrats can control role in this campaign are what to say and how to say it. In other words our message and the strategies we use to communicate that message is Dan Pfeiffer and Celinda Lake just mentioned the Party starts twenty twenty at a disadvantage in both of these areas along. Crowded primary. Hasn't allowed us to coalesce around a single message about what we stand for. Or how we govern and aside from your friends at crooked media a few other outlets like us there's just no progressive equivalent to Fox News and the massive propaganda machine that Donald Trump and the Republicans rely on to deliver their message overcoming. This challenge might be the most critical step on the path to victory. Sorry in November. Because as we've now learned from the organizers on the ground and the voters in our focus groups it's crucial to breakthrough all the noise and nastiness cynicism to actually reach people where they are and persuade them that it's possible for us to get to a better place. So how do we do that. We'll talk to people who have some smart ideas on media and message in our final episode of the Wilderness. It's very hard for Democrats. Even the current contract with the media to put the conversation on the things that matter to voters healthcare where the economy those sorts of issues. They don't get clicks. Try Social Media Traffic. There's no algorithm benefit to them so they might as well be trees falling in the forest at times. That's Dan pfeiffer. Lifer Co host to Pod Save America and author of un-trumpian America pointing out. How difficult it is for Democrats to break through with messages policies that the voters we've heard from actually actually care about Donald Trump on the other hand doesn't have this problem? He has a tremendous advantage because of social media so the Algorithms reward outrage and outrage as the coin of the Roman conservative politics but it's not just social media where trump has an advantage. He also has tremendous Mendes influence over. What the traditional media covers the traditional media is forced by the perverse economics of digital advertising icing to cover trump? He is the nation's assignment editor. which is something one of us wants called him? We start with the president's public meltdown on twitter pushing the trade war between the world's economic superpowers into a dangerous new fe day. Nine I think of the president continuing to go. After this group of women he calls them a UC seve plus three. That's the new nickname that he unveiled for them today. The way in which media outlets have to pay their bills in a world in which you are getting paid paid by the click forces you into covering and writing about content that gets clicks. Because you're getting your traffic from facebook and Google right right in facebook. It's rewarding trump content because trump content makes people so he has that advantage tear McGowan a democratic strategist and CEO. Joe Of digital advertising firm acronym expands on Dan's notion of trump. As the nation's assignment editor the mainstream media are only covering what what gets the most noise which is actually really seeded by the Republicans and trump specifically because trump will tweet something out and then the media picks up on it because they have to exceed the president. It started when he tweeted on Sunday. That Alabama would quote most likely be hit much harder than anticipated painted. The National Weather Service then tweeted. Alabama will not see any impacts from Roy in the trump era a lot of media criticism is about whether journalists I do enough to fact check. Trump's lies or even call them lies at all but what may be even more helpful to trump is that the media has allowed him to become as Dan says says the nation's assignment editor. They let him drive the conversation. They let him pick the issues. They let him set the terms of the debate. Even when he's not talking about about governing or policy-making which usually isn't these bad incentives or why as Dan points out the overall effect of media criticism about trump trump will always be limited. I mean there is definitely some benefit to working there but we are not like seven tweets. Maggie Haberman away from solving this problem like we also have to be clear we as progressives have the wrong view of the media. We had this vision of the media as this set set of referees and fact checkers who bring order to our messy politics and so in doing so we think they think it's their job. takedown trump that is not their job so if we continue to mythology is the media. We're never going to succeed. The communication strategy because it lends us to believe leave that the best way to communicate is talk to the media supposed to talk to people. What's even more unfortunate is that Republicans realized long ago that they needed to go around the traditional channel media and build their own channels of communication trump has a massive state adjacent propaganda machine that pumps his message out to his voters with tremendous disciplined? Frankly was not just Fox. It's the entire right-wing talk radio sphere. Beer it's Owen. It's Breitbart. It is like this. Plethora of online very sketchy digital outlets that are pumping trump propaganda into the ecosystem. Is Dan says right. Wing media goes well beyond Fox News and Breitbart to random corners of the Internet. You've probably never heard of Tair. McGowan knows these online worlds all too well and takes us down the rabbit hole. There's also publications that popped up like the big league. The Big League was started by twenty seven year old man who left Breitbart because he felt it had gone soft after trump was elected in the big league is notorious yes because they were the publication that released the north black face. Photo did participate in a dance contest. In which darken my face as part of a Michael Jackson Costume the yearbook photo was broken. Not by the New York Times but by big league politics a right wing media outlet run by a former BREITBART writer. This the new normal these strategically pushed it out and got the national media to cover it win. You know I was in a very politically vulnerable moment. Coming to the defense of a late abortion bill in the State House in Virginia this revenge politics media is being being used as a weapon to deploy this type of revenge politics after the election. So there are these all over the Internet and they're not just the ones that are so explicitly unapologetic about their political agenda. Like Breitbart and Fox. There's also sinclair a hundred and ninety three local television affiliates. Let's sinclair is a pro-trump Corporation. Why our cable news channels airing so much coverage of the trump Russia story so here are the options? It's bias against the president for higher ratings or it's a really important story and now these trusted local news. Brands friends are putting money behind facebook. Ads to their viewers endorsing and marketing trump Maga- hats the daily beast reports sports at least twenty-seven clear broadcasters posted items on their website starting on Thursday hyping a new keep America great had for sale and the trump campaign's website. The right right has built this infrastructure and now is pushing millions and millions of dollars a month behind the content and the messengers that have influence on their side. How on channels like facebook and Google? And we're not spending any money we're just relying on the mainstream media to do our job which they're not gonNa do do because they live in fear of being called the liberal fake news media that that if we're not spending at the same clip that trump and the Republicans are just to drive our offensive. Message were losing the information war. The good news is Tara. Has Some ideas about how the Democrats can catch up. I believe the only solution antidote to this challenge is to have our own communication like our own owned channels to communicate to people directly and that does not mean in. NFL areas ways does not mean spread liser misinformation. It's the opposite but we have to do. Is We actually have to compete tears. Right it's one of the reasons we started crooked crooked media and now terror is actually building another one of those channels herself after working as a digital producer for Obama in twenty twelve and is the director of digital strategy. See for priorities. USA In two thousand Sixteen Terrace started acronym her nonprofit digital firm that's creating progressive ads in content for twenty twenty acronym. mm-hmm isn't making these ads the same way it's always been done but the same old democratic ad firms. They're using an approach. That's both more creative. And more data driven we'll look at a very very large audience of people And take you know ten different messages. Around how trump has been really bad for the economy. So those messages could be you know the impact of offshoring jobs the tax cuts for the rich and squeezing the middle class further. The trade war. What have you and then for each of those messages will develop tons of content memes gifts videos etc then our creative director will go to the team and be like okay? What are all of the different visceral values driven identity driven ways? We can express this message. And they'll build out all this content and then what we do is we push it out to a broader audience. Audience of voters in say Michigan Pennsylvania Wisconsin. And then what we're doing is we are actually surveying groups of these voters who are getting all of this content Dan and learning on a biweekly basis. What of these messages? And what of the actual pieces of content were delivering is having the most impact impact at chipping away at trump's approval rating among those voters. In real time
Trump was briefed on whistleblower complaint before releasing Ukraine aid
"President trump knew about the whistle blower complaint when they release military aid to Ukraine and the September New York times reporter Maggie Haberman shares the byline on the story we reported that the president was briefed by the White House counsel at the planning and the National Security Council mean lawyer John Eisenberg in August that about the fact the whistleblower complaint is listed on the whistleblower complaint of course talked about not as we know now nine carats dead presidents on college presidents Lynskey from July twenty fifth but also this question about the freezing of military
New poll shows Biden beating Trump by a "landslide"
"Questions? Okay. This New York Times poll says after being briefed on this devastating. Seventeen state poll shows Trump losing in a landslide. That's conducted by his campaign. Pollster Mr. Trump told age to deny never heard his instructions second. Joe Biden winning Texas a pipe dream. That's not happening. Third. I would go back and revisit pulling between Hillary Clinton and President Donald Trump at this point in the cycle, his, our internal polling shows that when President Trump is against a defined democrat. He wins the election such a Naric internal polling that doesn't look necessarily strong polling. We are confident confident where the president stands defined Joe Biden among them will lose to the president, very confident confident in Florida in Ohio, and we're making headway. In fact, we're looking at, and we're looking at potentially put resources. There. So we're very confident not just on holding the map but extending up. So the campaign is denying the Maggie Haberman story that there's internal polling that shows Trump also losing big Biden Trump told his staff to lie
Trump denies report on hush money probe
"The New York Times says Trump asked Whitaker if he could put US attorney Jeffrey Berman in charge of the Coen probe more from CNN's Jake tapper with one of the authors of the times report Meg. Haberman? Multiple sources told you and your colleagues the President Trump asked Whitaker to have US attorney Jeffrey Berman unr- accused himself. So he could oversee the southern district of New York's investigation into then candidate trumps role and silencing women with hush money payments this request. This is one in a pattern. Exactly, right, Jake. I mean, the president as he literally are, you know? It's a word that he and the turn to it's not even a concept. I think that I had heard of before his presidency, but we know that in two thousand seventeen the president was very laser focused. Jeff Sessions recused the multiple times. From is from the Russia probe and overseeing it attorney general in this case, the president called that Whitaker. Who has we have all reported multiple times, you know, an ally of the president's out from it was possible for Jeff ferment? The district attorney to us on the Michael Cullen probe which he is from. That was able to go anywhere. We know that certainly there have been some concern by Whitaker and some other officials DOJ about SDN why and what they were doing with this would occur had used the term adult supervision with people describe what the need, but to your point this fits the pattern of the president looking to get somebody who he believes a loyalist who he believes he'll be an ally. Whether they will or walk, but who he believes can be more helpful to him overseeing an investigation that touches on them. And we should point out that US attorney, Geoffrey Garin has an excellent reputation. There's no evidence that he would carry out the president's orders had he recused himself that we should know you also write about a lawyer for President Trump reaching out to the legal team for his former campaign chief, Paul Manafort, and for Michael Flynn to discuss possible pardons, something the president has not ruled out at this point both Lena Manafort, having chastised by the judges in their cases for for lying there facing serious jail time your story really lays out a his. Three of I have to say unprecedented behavior for sitting president of the United States. It is. I mean, certainly we we can't think of any other situation either with this MS length of time or durability with these kinds of activities going on the defense from the president's lawyers is all within his power. And so these executive branch, you know, when it comes to things like asking about what she does titled ask about what situations are their argument. Is that doesn't constitute an order, even if that did take place. And that's usually the couch these things, but certainly we are in uncharted territory. Tat's Maggie Haberman of the New York Times speaking with CNN's, Jake tapper the president's reaction to her story gave you that? This more fake news respect from this. I think he's done a great job.
"maggie haberman" Discussed on The Moment with Brian Koppelman
"Is Maggie Haberman of the New York Times, Maggie. Thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. I invited you on here on Twitter a couple of times, and I promise that it would be polite that was before we got to know each other as we had closed mutual friends. Now won't be all I know now I get it. I can't no guarantees. I've been fascinated with the position. I, I would say, you found yourself with us on the position. You've put yourself in through a lot of work and focus, but I feel that you are in a a particular and fascinating unique spot in the culture right now found myself, I think was right. Actually. I mean, I think, yes, I worked hard over a long period of time, but I didn't expect that I was going to be covering the White House two years ago when this campaign ended. Right said this is this is this is a happenstance moment. I mean, I think that I think that I have known Donald Trump for a while and in a way that must my colleagues didn't said that put me in a unique position. He is obsessed with the New York Times. So that puts me in unique position at all of us in a more unique position. But the confluence of, you know, my knowing him plus the paper that captured his imagination in a way that. Else does has created something. I've heard you talk about that stuff. I, I did a pretty deep dive and listened to a bunch of podcasts at a bunch of interviews, and thanks, I think. Yeah, I'm sorry for your loss of time. One thing that struck me and this isn't about Trump is about you is it is. It seems to me that humans, it's clear humans need some time to reflect and to downshift processing time. Decompression, I think anywhere this is going to it's just clear from your interviews like that long form episode was almost SNL level. It was horrible. The way I was with him, I felt so bad, but it was almost l. level in the your lack of ability to disconnect from we all understand it. Right, because we're in a way you are. You're a cynic Deke for the rest of us and our engagement with this. I don't disengage my colleague amateurs. I actually had a great piece today in the Sunday review about how everybody is sort of addicted to the Trump show. And I do think that there is something to that. So yes, I think for those of us who are serving as sort of the the adapters. Right? Like we're the cords by which the material is flowing through there is some of that, and I think there I have felt an obligation to not disconnect because if you disconnect you lose your place but isn't there. But I want this is what I want to question at. I wanna question that because the adaptor has to run has to run clean without, sir. Yes. And part of your job is to not just be an adopted, but to be prism in a way in a way. I mean, I think that look that has been, you're raising something that I think has been the an issue and you know this very well for the last two years of the what, what the role of journalists is in this moment in time? Yeah. And so journalists play very different roles. I, I do think that it is. I have taken more steps back now than I did during a lot of the interviews and podcasts that you're talking about, especially the long form one with max landscape where I was literally writing a story as we were talking, which was nuts and like not ideal, but but was necessary because we had this interview setup and something was breaking at that moment and there was nothing I could do about it. Now I can step back a little bit more because the cavenaugh stuff which actually is like authentically not clear where it's going right. Whereas like much of these things have been kind of showy and. Aside from that in the last two months has actually been easier to take a step back and reflect. I wish I had been able to before that. It's not so much. I guess I see it as let's have a choice. Then I think some people. Because I understand it right. I understand the impulse to let the work speak for. It's the immediacy of the work snow.

"Powers lake Norman that area. How is that doing student? Good. But still. I love that area. Just I can't tell you, why would I love that area? Didn't really terrific. Have a good time. He wishes the last person giving them their styrofoam encased meal. Look, he did not employ his usual Goto paper towel distribution method today as he did in Puerto Rico, asking about lake Norman, where he has a Trump resort. Jill, as you mentioned it always take the good with the bad with these ones, but it's the, it's the little comments that the cruise pick up on these trips. Absolutely. This is the president who really just seemingly can't help himself. He's also somebody who really benefits in these situations from very low bar. I mean, we're going in there wondering, is the president going to be tossing paper towels. That people as though he's at a basketball game, you know, is he going to insult anybody? Is he going to make this all about himself? And so when the president does show those moments, you know that that image you showed of him hugging, the boy volunteer interacting really seemingly earnestly asking people how they're being impacted promising both in north and South Carolina to officials there. That government would be there that federal resources were on the way and would he does those things? He went up getting a lot more credit than a typical president would want to show you something that ended up on local media from on social media from a local reporter, covering the event that down there today. This is Maggie Haberman. Retweeted this saying a local reporter experiencing the president up close for the first time. Brent Kelman wrote Trump's storm briefing in quotes in North Carolina was surreal. I nobody briefed him politicians mostly just thanked him. Second, he praised local officials for their talent. Third, he said, we have the strongest economy ever. Fourth, he asked about lake Norman, whereas golf course is so sometimes the those of us who cover something everyday become process blind. And sometimes it takes a journalist covering it as a local story to say, wait a minute. There's no briefing at this briefing thousand percent. It's always interesting when you see local reporters and people who are new to the beat, sort of witnessing the president in the flesh for the first time and seeing their reaction to this. These are especially people who have spent. Now, you know the last couple of days on the ground talking to people who have been so devastated whose homes have been destroyed who are going to be spending the next week's the next month's putting the pieces back together. And as he was walking through the communities today, it's also important to note that both of these are states that voted for the president. He was in very red communities. He was greeted in some places with applause, with science, welcoming him there. These are Trump's people. And so these are people that he has some kind of connection to beyond just what they're dealing with after a local disaster. Another day spent in his black disaster. Raincoat Jovan can't. Thank you. Really appreciate you coming on coming up, the leaders of north and South Korea say they're on a path to achieve denuclearization catches. They'll need help from the US that when we come back..

"Tom Sullivan So. Here we are and glad, you come by happy to see you on. This, Monday the twentieth, day of August two thousand eighteen by name is. Tom Sullivan alright I've. Alluded to this information I, want to share with you a few times. But This Don Mcgann story that broke, yesterday On the New York Times was written by Written by, Maggie Haberman and Michael Schmidt and Michael Schmidt Maggie Haberman are the ones at the New York Times that seemed to break all of the stories that are dealing with the Trump. Administration with Donald Trump with the White House they seem to have some incredible Insight into what's going on inside the. White House inside Donald Trump's life Why would that be so once I saw yesterday New York Times Maggie Haberman 's name on the story And became the caused the, celeb- for everybody, yesterday afternoon last night Monday morning news It's the big story today Don Mcgann spent. Thirty hours talking to more Let me give. You a, little insight into Maggie Haberman and A, number you can find a number of stories not. A lot but you can find number of stories about this one that. I have in front of me is from medium dot com But The medium dot. Com they're upset about the the New York Times failing to disclose to the public that Nagy Haberman's relationship with Donald Trump is not just any old, reporter president. Relationship and why is it Maggie Haberman who you never heard of until Donald Trump was a, candidate All of a sudden is star reporter for the New York Times the New York Times I, mean they. Have some they regardless of what you like or don't like about him they have some real Really star power journalists that work at. The New York Times so how did Maggie Haberman become the big, star over there well. Let's go, back a little ways, to who knows who in Manhattan and who does business. With whom in Manhattan And Donald Trump has been a media figure in Manhattan for decades And that wasn't by accident because there's a lot of powerful wealthy ego Centric people. That happened to make home in the center of New York City Well it starts with a woman by the name of Nancy Haberman Yep that's maggie's mother Nancy Haberman works for the PR firm Rubinstein That was founded by. Howard, Rubenstein who is, an absolute PR legend in New York City Rudy Giuliani called him the dean of damage control So at Rubinstein Nancy Haberman. Wasn't some flunky she was the executive, vice president and if you look at her bio she talks about how she took a few years out to raise her her children and Then it goes on to basically what is it that Nancy Haberman lens to the firm Rubinstein, well they're. The background on her is that she's really tied in with print radio and broadcast media. Big emphasis on, New York media in the. In the relationship in in the. Bio on on the mom Nancy Haberman, it says lens media support to other people's clients with her relationships established over thirty years That's what it takes it takes relationships I, don't care. If you're in New York City or Kansas City doesn't matter relationships are key to business And Nancy Haberman has been in the. PR business for major. People in New. York City for over thirty years who would be a client of, Rubinstein that. Would be one Donald Trump And, Rubinstein the firm as a long history of doing PR for Donald Trump It began with Fred the dad Howard Rubenstein I worked on with Fred Crump then, in nineteen ninety Fred calls over to Howard Rubenstein somebody call somebody in there but it's a Rubinstein's Trump's know each other And this was Donald was getting a. Divorce getting divorced from, me Bonham. And they hire Rubinstein to take on Donald's personal PR and they did all the work of spinning the mess into something that, would not tarnish Donald Trump's name and brand So PR specialists like Howard Rubenstein in Nancy Haberman work the media to the benefit of their clients Thursday control they'll, that's what you call them for if there's a story to promote the person yes what you call their spin meisters Okay so Howard. Rubenstein and Nancy Haberman no every secret of. Donald, and Fred Trump going back decades And Howard Rubenstein got his start With the louder family And Late to Arthur, Finkelstein who is a Republican strategist who apprenticed under ROY Cohn and worked for Paul Manafort and Roger. Stone's so this whole group is very tightly knit So let's keep going under the Rubinstein firms ties one of their clients is. The Kushner family Yep like in Jared Kushner The. Story that is, reported New York media was that, when when Jared Kushner's father Charles, was sent to federal prison Jared reportedly became so close to Rubenstein that it was Howard who we turn to when his. Father was sent to jail So bottom line behind all of this is, Maggie Haberman has a very powerful, mother who's connected to all the inside dirt on everything regarding Trump is family his business Jared Kushner Kushner's family Kushner's business And Nancy is paid to spin all of this into. Positives for, the, Trump's, the Kushner's Oliver clients But Maggie is a journalist, not a PR person But, it's the PR relationships that, give Maggie her access And if she doesn't do the spin nice three four mom's clients will she lose access to them because this is, all blessed from her mother to the trumps the Kushner's They give Nagy access into the White House And so the complaint in journalism world is that the New York Times doesn't reveal. This family financial tied to their star reporter but if you're wondering, how Maggie Haberman gets all this inside information A lot, of people that go Maggie Haberman. Oh. She's really good she's she's breaking all these stories and they're all on the about Trump Kushner and the White House and everything. Else man she knows she she's really good at her job no She's got, somebody who her mother who has. Been Dealing with the trumps and the and the Kushner's. For thirty plus years and people make phone calls And that's how it appeared from, the outside looking in in my humble opinion that Maggie Haberman is working for the New York Times but working for her mother and has a PR spin Meister family that paid the way for her So when you read a story by Maggie Haberman think, twice about it and go why did the New York Times why did Maggie Haberman and Michael Schmid Release this big expose Sunday On Don Mcgann and the testimony. With the, special counsel Was she doing the work of the White House Was she an all of her, work I look at all of her work now and I, think is she just spinning a White. House story but it's the New York Times time I know that And you would think a New York Times reporter would, be an independent journalists but the powerful. New York Times But the difference with Maggie is she's, got all this background with mom And. You can make out of it whatever you wanna make out of it I don't know what you what you think of her work but. You've got to know that there is a connection that you have to wonder is there, a powerful enough connection there to wear Somehow what she's reporting is being given to her so that. It looks like it's coming from the independent media I don't think a lot of people know this And. I mean I I should good for Maggie Haberman she's used her family connections to become the. Star of star reporters at the New York Times And. She's getting all, the, scoops she's breaking all the stories. I don't know she's a paid contributor for CNN but I see you're on CNN a lot And when you see the fact that they've. Got her name and New. York Times you. Go oh well she's for the, New York Times and she has to be Going, after, Donald Trump gives a New York Times doesn't like Trump right I don't know I. Don't know anymore I don't know where her allegiances are to the New York Times. Or to her mother Who was paid handsomely by the trumps and the Kushner families for years Phone number's eight..

Meanwhile, Cording the communists to British economy has slowed down to a standstill largely because of Brexit after losing business over boycotts vodka Trump shut down our business, her name brand store and Trump Tower still open however, and she's continuing apply for trademarks and foreign countries. And this is not great news because this means she has more time on her hands. She and Jared are known to throw fancy parties which are like catnip to the Chuck Todd, industrial, complex, Washington DC. And so let's as we warned you and our previous episode expect Ivanka Jared chew position her to be the first female president, and I totally predict that what they're gonna do is they're going to have this whole charm offensive in the media when that time comes and they're gonna blame everything on her father and said, it wasn't us. You saw out of control. He was none of that was our fault. But keep in mind that Vonk is inside the White House advising the president. I had states, so the responsibility is on her. Yeah. They've already started doing that. You're already saw that with Maggie Haberman trying to build them up and excuse them again and being the court stenographer and palace intrigue tale-teller. But yeah, don't fall for it. We gasoline nation will be here to endlessly. Remind you of Vonk as various crimes and immorality, and lack of qualifications, and the fact that she should not be in the White House at all, and in fact, ample legal grounds, true move her for lying on her clearance forms. Bunka charm is working at the highest level of the White House for her father.

He got caught having meetings with Russian spy, Maria Patino who was arrested and he is one of the chief opponents Magnitsky trying to end do that legislation, the Magnitsky act, which will talk about further in today's episode. I just want to remind everybody that Dana Rohrabacher almost became the secretary of state. I just need to throw that in there because everyone constantly forgets this that during the time immediately after the election where people were even doubting that there was Russian influence over Trump's campaign and over his politics..
