Fresh update on "marjorie" discussed on Thank God I'm Atheist
"So this is the guy that he goes by yay now, right? Yeah. Yeezy wasn't that one of them? At one point, sure. Was there like yeezus? Do I remember him leaning into it that far as well? That was more of a, just how he wants everyone to think of him. Okay. Let's actually change my name too. Yeah. I've got a new one for him. Yeah? Yeesh. Yeah. Because I was like, yeah. It's literally shocking. You know, it's hard to shock me at this point. But and he doubled, tripled, quadrupled down on this thing. Literally, at one point, I saw a Twitter thread where somebody was like, this is out of context. And I'm like, what? You have not been paying attention. 'cause literally every clip, you can not find a context in which it's okay in which it mitigates anything about Kanye going, I love Hitler. Literally, there's just no place where that works. There's no context where you're like, I mean, unless you're talking about the context that I'm in, where you're catching me saying, I love Hitler and it's just a quote from Kanye. That's like the one context when you're quoting someone else where yikes. Yikes. And here's the thing. He's been palling around with this Fuentes guy. So Nick Fuentes is this young kid. We played a several clips of him on the show over the last few months. A rising star of the Hitler youth. The white supremacist movement. And he and literally like he talks openly about this sort of thing, I was tempted to play a clip of him on his most recent show where he lamented that all the mainstream media was talking about with this Kanye interview. Was the Hitler stuff. What about all the other good stuff in the interview? Why isn't the media talking about that? So weird. Yeah. But also he doesn't disavow any of the Hitler stuff. Of course not. Because he's fully a neo Nazi. Right. So I just, you know, we talked about this trend last week, we talked about nazism. It's just so, but the brilliant thing that's happening now, now that Kanye and people like Fuentes are literally just saying the quiet parts out loud. Which is the rule. That is the rule with this. The white supremacists that have any kind of platform microphone, whatever, right? You're Alex Jones. Yes. Exactly. You dog whistle you dog whistle. You dog whistle. Because then when people say, well, how can you say such an outrageously racist thing? They're like, oh, you're woke, you're crazy. I didn't say that. Right. Right. It's like, you're taking you're taking it out of context or whatever, right? You give yourself these little with these ways out from around it. Right. So everyone in your audience understands what you're saying. Right. But you have plausible deniability, correct. And you get to keep saying it, and if your audience grows, then, you know, you're reaching more people who become desensitized to the kind of things that you're saying. And are maybe more amenable to your worldview. Right. And so which to be clear is the same worldview that Fuentes has. Exactly. It's just you don't say it. Cameras off microphones off. Yeah, Alex Jones is like right there with these guys. Right. But literally, he even he is shocked. He, the whole time is like, well, I wouldn't go that far. Well, I wouldn't say that, but you wouldn't say it. Literally, Alex fucking Jones. You know who else is disavowing now? Marjorie Taylor Greene, I love this one. Yeah. She literally earlier, I think this year, accepted an award from Nick Fuentes. On stage at the something something pack, like America first pack or whatever. Right. Convention. Right. Which is literally just white supremacy. And we've heard Marjorie Taylor Greene actually defend white supremacy, but she's like, well, or no, sorry, Christian nationalism is what she defended. She's like, we should be in a Christian nation. That's the one where they've started to experiment with, can we say this out loud? Sort of thing. Right. Christian nationalism, by the way, everyone is white supremacy. There's no, there's no difference. They're literally the same. They're different branding of the same product. Right. But so she knows she knows she has shook his hand in public in front of it. You smiled for the cameras. Accepting an award, she is on the same page. But when this shit went down, all of this stuff with Kanye and Fuentes literally didn't, I don't think he got a word in edgeways on InfoWars. But he was there with Kanye, so I mean, the association is just inherent in it. And now Marjorie Taylor Greene is dark is basically she had a whole thing on her. She has some podcaster whatever. Of course she does. 'cause that's what the cool kids do. Right, exactly. And she was saying like literally you could take full sentences long clips of what she was saying and it could have come out of our mouths. Like, she literally said Nick Fuentes is a racist. She said he is, quote, a very immature young man, saying hateful things about people. True.
Cliff Schecter on How House Democrats Should Handle Republicans
"I don't think Republicans are going to work with us. They have no interest in lowering inflation or anything. This is all they're going to do is investigation. Let's say that. Sorry, go ahead. No, I said, how do we handle that? Democratic mess. Well, so here's what I would say. First of all, paint them into a corner. We don't do that enough. You know they create these demons with people like Nancy Pelosi who aren't even demons. Marjorie Taylor Greene is a demon. Yeah. She should be the face of their party. She's the one pulling on McCarthy strings. And they're not even guaranteed that he has the votes yet. So what I'm hoping is, go ahead. Go ahead, no finish, 'cause yeah, go ahead. I did a little bit of research, and you have to do a lot of research to find normal Republicans. And there are actually like three or four in the house. There's one Latina from the Miami area who voted in favor of background checks, version in favor of the keeping the Affordable Care Act was pro choice and also their stuff. And I thought, why don't Democrats grab the half dozen Republicans who are sane, go and make a power sharing agreement, make this woman speaker and just get her to agree to bring up some decent legislation and just chop Kevin McCarthy because already. He doesn't have the votes. Well, this is the shade that Jeffrey's just through, just real quick. Let's take a listen. Hakeem Jeffries. On what you just said. You expect that Kevin McCarthy is going to be speaker? Well, that's a question at the end of the day that the Republicans are going to have to work out. He seems to be having a difficult time at this moment getting the two 18. But we'll see what happens on January 3rd. Yes. I was going to see the other one that would be a good candidate is David valadao from the Fresno area because his district is actually a Biden controlled district, but he got reelected. But he voted for impeachment. He also voted on the gun safety and he also voted for abortion rights. And another one of those ones I liked. I didn't know if he had held on though, is that been officially his officially held on? It looks like he's going to win. I don't know if it's been a call yet, but if I am happy to be happy like you, I have not given up on the blue tsunami. I think there might be just enough GOP that are either indicted. Or we can bring the others to sanity and we could still control the house.
Hakeem Jeffries unanimously elected leader of House Democrats, calls for bipartisanship
"House Democrats will have a new leader in the new session of Congress next month, and he's vowing to find common ground with Republican leaders. New York congressman Hakeem Jeffries becomes the first black American to lead a major political party at the capitol. The 52 year old is vowing to get things done for the American people. Fight for better paying jobs, fight for safer communities, defend democracy, fight for reproductive freedom. On ABC's this week with George Stephanopoulos, Jeffreys vows to work with Republicans wherever they can. They're going to double and triple down on the extremism that we've seen from people like Marjorie Taylor Greene, that would be unfortunate. Republican congressman David Joyce of Ohio is also rejecting extremism on the hill. He says the party needs to serve the public that put them into office. You see all this kabuki theater taking place at D.C.. But what is that doing to lower the price of gas? What is that doing to lower the groceries? Jackie Quinn Washington
Steve Gill: Masks Do Not Work Against COVID
"Catch Marjorie Taylor green's tweet the other? Was it yesterday? She was tweeting about how you can wear the thick cotton underwear and it still will not protect you from a fart. Again, rather shocking does he is sitting member of Congress writing about this, but into her point was, so what makes you think one of those masks will be able to protect you from the China virus? Well, especially that we have a new comprehensive medical study that says there's no difference that the mask essentially do not work and the fact that you still see people driving around in their cars by themselves wearing them. I was talking with a friend from China last night. And one of the things that's fueling the riots and the chaos and the absolutely meltdown in China right now is that the Chinese people don't get news media that allows them to know what's really going on in the world. But they're watching the World Cup and they're seeing, you know, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of people going to these games and nobody's wearing a mask while their government is beating them down, locking them in apartment buildings, killing people over masks and a COVID shutdown and they're watching the rest of the world is going to soccer games without wearing a mask. They see the disparate treatment that is being played out. And that's one of the things that's fueling the anger in China.
Caller Supports Marjorie Taylor Greene for House Speaker
"Relate to nominate much you agree. So Georgia, I think, should be a good one. Is that right? So what do you like about Marjorie Taylor green Cathy? Well, I don't really know that much about her. I don't get to listen to the news that Martin stuff, but just I think she'd be a good one. All right, well Kathy, we're going to write you down for MTG as Speaker of the House. I'm sorry to hear. You know, I think there's something going around the country right now. And folks are getting the flu. They're getting sick. I hope you're doing the chicken noodle soup and everything, Kathy. I'm doing a chicken noodle soup and I don't really have a flu. I started out with tons of lighters and now it's on my chest. Oh dear. You gotta get some of it, get some good ice cream, so just good chocolate ice cream. Blue bell is a good brand. So all right. Kathy feel better and thanks for calling in. Folks, Kathy says MTG would make a great Speaker of the House.
The Art of Retaliation
"I want to talk about an important principle in politics and it is the art of retaliation, the art of retaliation. Now, this principle came to my mind when Kevin McCarthy said recently, I, Kevin McCarthy, I'm going to remove Eric swalwell, Adam Schiff, and Ilhan Omar from their House committees. Now, we should note that this is a kind of an unprecedented, well, actually, no, it is a precedented step. But it is an unusual step because the general modus operandi, the way of doing business in the Congress is this. The majority party controls the committees. They appoint the chairman of the committees and the committees, by the way, are the mechanism through which legislation passes. Committee is a very important a judiciary committee, the ways and means committee and so on. And the majority party has the majority of members on the committee, but the minority party, in this case, the Democrats in the House would have the right to appoint their own members. But the Democrats decided last time around, to violate this kind of code of etiquette, if you will, and throw a prominent Republicans, notably Marjorie Taylor Greene, offer committee. Oh, she's an extremist. So extremist or not, the point is she's not being named by your side. She was being named by the Republican side. And the fact that the Democrats said, well, we have the power to do it, so we're gonna do it. It was very important and it is very important for Republicans to be like, well, you know what? Two can play at this game.

Rep. Matt Rosendale Doesn't Know How Kevin McCarthy Will Get the Votes
"Things going on with Kevin McCarthy and we're going to have an update of all the shenanigans right now with a new guest on the show from Montana's second congressional district, a man who served in the House of Representatives in Montana in the Senate. He has been the Senate majority leader and we are delighted to have congressman Matt rosendale with us on America first wink, welcome congressman. Doctor gorka, it's good to be with you today. All right, so tell us what was going on on Capitol Hill yesterday and today, and there's quite a few people who have the letter R after their name who do not want Kevin McCarthy to be the speaker. Is that correct? That is correct. We can not continue to put the same people in to lead this conference and use the same rules that they have been utilizing for the last several years and hope and pray that maybe we'll get a different outcome. Absolutely. Now, one of the things I heard is that for an hour and a half, Marjorie Taylor Greene was negotiating behind closed doors with Kevin McCarthy. Do you know anything about that? Because that disturbs me a little bit. That I can not speak to, what I will tell you is I think that there's probably going to be a lot of discussions that take place over the next 40 days leading up to January the third when mister McCarthy is going to have to try to accumulate 200 and 18 votes on the floor. He did not receive that yesterday. He didn't receive 200. I'm sure a lot of your listeners listen heard the quote from representative Matt Gaetz yesterday. He didn't get 200. He didn't get 190. And so if you couldn't acquire 218 votes over the last 6 years, how is it that you expect to gather the additional 30 that you need over the next 40 days?
Marjorie Taylor Greene and the Case for McCarthy As Speaker
"With us now as Marjorie Taylor Greene, the terrific member of the House of Representatives and Marjorie Taylor Greene has said she is going to support Kevin McCarthy for Speaker of the House. Congresswoman Greene, congratulations on your reelection and tell us why you think speaker are congressman McCarthy would be the best option for speaker. Well, thank you so much, Charlie. I'm really grateful to all of everyone in my district that has supported me to send me back to Congress to represent them. This is unprecedented. What we're going into this razor thin majority and thank God we're going to have the majority because here for the past week, we haven't even been sure if that was going to happen. We still don't know the number of seats we're going to have. It's estimated anywhere between two 18 to some would even set as high as two 26. I have a really hard time seeing that. So everyone just keeps telling me two 20 to two 22 ish. But so that means that we have no basically no margin of error. And that means that our conference has to be as united as possible. And we're also, we also have to look forward. We're going into a presidential election in 2024. And so what we're able to do here in our conference over the next two years really plays in to our chances of winning back The White House and even taking back the Senate. So here we are. We're going to be Republicans in the majority. We will not have any help in the Senate because we'll have no control there. We'll have a democratic controlled White House and we will be on our own over here in the House of Representatives. Now I'm very much a realist. I make decisions based on the reality that I'm in and that I'm given. And I believe that we have to we have to elect one speaker. We have to unify because here's what's happening behind the scenes and the halls of Congress and many different meetings. We have different factions of our Republican conference that are looking to use their power, the power of a few to challenge the leadership or challenge Kevin McCarthy in order to get what they want. Now, the problem with that is they're also talking to Democrats. And that is extremely concerning to me. I think after the past two years, what Democrats have done to this country and how they have treated president Trump, his administration, his supporters, and Republicans all over the country. And I'm talking about parents at the school boards. I'm talking about pro life activist being, you know, having the FBI show up at their house. I'm talking about the pretrial January 6th defendants who have yet to see a day in court and have been held this entire time. And just the threat, the threat to those to conservatives,
Did Independent Voters Make the Devil's Bargain?
"Happened across the country in the only states that didn't really happen is Florida, to be honest, where independence we thought independence we're going to break our way. And Andrew, do you remember that show that we did right before the midterms of how we could lose and we got so much hate mail, where one of the ways I said is if independence somehow don't break our way. Now, I'll be very honest. I didn't think that was possible. I didn't think with gas prices with immigration with Biden being so unpopular. Now, what ended up happening though seemed to be a kind of devil's bargain that independence did in their head at least in Arizona, where they went into the voting booth very convincingly by 6 to 8 points saying that we are going to vote for some Republicans, but we're not going to vote for all Republicans. And so here's the one thing that no one has been able to explain to me, which is if it was, you know, if they were really in Scottsdale, for example, or in mesa, if all of it was synthetic, then why on earth was David schweickart and Andy Biggs? Why were they outperforming Carrie Lake, which none of us would have thought Andrew. We thought that Arizona would want a Republican governor a lot more than a Republican Congress. That is not the case. It is clear that at least in Arizona and in other states, Georgia as well, that voters were saying that we want some Democrats to run our states, which is just amazing. You think about it, but it really might not have been that. It was we want the person that is not going to be controversial. And by the way, it didn't take a lot to tip it over the edge. Why? It's because they ran up the score in downtown Phoenix.
There's Something We Can Learn From Democrats...
"There is something I want to say, and I know that people do not want to hear this in our audience because they email and they say Charlie stopped talking about things that went wrong. They just flat out stole it. Okay, but this is interesting though. If you listen to what happened in Colorado, because I made a lot of calls last night, right? I made calls to people on the ground in Pennsylvania and Colorado and Georgia and in most states, except Texas and Florida, and they have all said as they're doing their data analysis. They saw a same and similar collapse of independence across the board across the country. Now, people might say, well, Charlie, it's because they had this rigged system. Well, if that's the case, then how did Ron DeSantis win by 20 points, right? How did Brian Kemp win by 6 or 7 points. Now, ballot harvesting and ballot capturing and machines going down in Arizona, we are the one of the only shows that is going to repeatedly talk about it. But there is growing evidence that there was something done by the Democrats that we can learn from that is constructive and important about how on earth did we do so well with independence in the polling and in certain early returns and in person election day, but there was a faction, a type of independence that totally gravitated their support away from us. And Andrew, there could be some explanations. But the most logical one would probably be something around Dobbs, something around a targeted ad campaign, or is it Andrew that Republicans didn't sprit sprint the last half mile of the marathon? Do you think that we just kind of were candidates just kind of let up that there wasn't a targeted campaign to go after independence? I don't know, I'm just thinking out loud. Andrew, what are your thoughts on that? I mean, listen, I think Dobbs completely. It's a point that I've made on the show this week. I think, you know, living in California, you know, my wife's Friends, we would have these conversations. And it kind of, I kind of didn't key in on it enough. Honestly. But they did a great job on platforms like TikTok, social media, you know, my wife told me hers was full of it before the election of just people saying, hey, they want a criminalized miscarriages. We all know that that's so ridiculous not to be true. I mean, half of pregnancies basically end in miscarriage. That's never going to happen. That's a crazy thing. I think it worked a lot with independence. I think it worked a lot with single women. We saw them go way far to the left this cycle.
Could Liz Cheney Become the New House Speaker?
"Some rather bizarre information coming from Capitol Hill. So I didn't think this was a possibility, but it sort of makes sense. So there is some concern that if the Republicans only have a one or two seat majority in the House of Representatives, that you could have some establishment or moderate Republicans. Siding with the Democrats and installing Liz Cheney as Speaker of the House. You say, well Todd Liz Cheney's she lost her congressional race. She's not in Congress, doesn't matter. According to the rules of the House, the speaker does not have to be an elected member of Congress, which is why so many people were suggesting, oh, let's get Donald Trump as the Speaker of the House. Well, I don't think you're going to be able to do that if you've got some renegade establishment Republicans out there who would be threatening and there are some and we're going to be naming names who are suggesting they would be supportive of Liz Cheney. This is one of the reasons why MTG and by the way, one of those individuals is congressman Don bacon from Nebraska. So this is why Marjorie Taylor Greene came out yesterday and said that she is supporting Kevin McCarthy. She's afraid that people might jump ship and that there would be enough votes to install Liz Cheney as the Speaker of the House. This is how crazy it's getting here, people. Can you imagine?
Rep. Jim Jordan: Kevin McCarthy Brings the Team Together
"Think what's interesting is you already have Donald Trump backing McCarthy Apparently making calls for him You have Marjorie Taylor Greene back in McCarthy We have you backing McCarthy We have certain Republican moderates back in the car You know I look at McCarthy and I try to step back he's not John Boehner He's not Paul Ryan He didn't try and undermine the conservative base or the mag of base He hasn't done what McConnell has done in the Senate gone after people he doesn't like to try and defeat them in the general election or in the primaries He's a different cat altogether I think Don't you Yes that is what has to happen in today's political world You got to bring the team together And he has done it so again I think that is what's needed for all kinds of reasons Most of most of which is just how radical the left is I mean again think about what they've done to our country No border record crime $5 gas 41 year inflation 41 year high inflation rate and of course what they're doing to your First Amendment Let me ask you this
Will New House Republicans Side With Democrats to Get Things Done?
"You said blame them all. Trump Republicans, their media, their voters because they form a cluster of insanity and degradation, a heaving ball, heading towards a cliff, 2022 was us stepping out of the way before a dragged us with them. We're not out of danger yet, but damn, it feels like we've dodged a catastrophe. And boy, howdy. That is really true. I mean, yeah, go ahead. I mean, I think that on some level, if the house does go Republican, they're gonna have to do some of the stupid hearings that they talk about. I think they're still talking about a Hunter Biden hearing, which is just Travis. Sorry. I want to point out on that subject. I do think you're right that they're going to these hearings, but remember, these are going to have to be in committees and committees are going to be evenly divided because the house is so close. So all it takes is one Republican, one sane Republican, which I know that's a long shot, but from a district that flipped these new York people. They're not going to be able to risk these crazy votes to keep their receipts. So I don't even know if the investigations are going to move that much. Well, Chris Hayes tweeted, I feel like the universe wants the house to be 2018, 2017, and you said one Republican could certainly be tempted to go independent and caucus with Dems. I mean, I think the jury is really still out on what happens with the house. And I think that if it's within a couple of a couple of seats, which it seems like it's going to be, no, excuse me. Yeah. Too much joy. And swallow swallow. Where it seems like it's heading, certainly, some of those Republican representatives are going to say, okay, you know what? I'd rather get stuff done. Then have to sit through Marjorie Taylor Greene going off about drag
Marjorie Taylor Greene: DeSantis Should Stay Put in Florida
"What's on your mind as you think about this Trump situation, you were telling me about Marjorie Taylor Greene. Yeah, yeah, there's apparently there's an article on epoch times that that desantis should avoid the 2024 race and remain a Florida governor and the reason she gives is that we need to have as many Republican governors in the United States as possible because they are the ones that control their state, the crime, all those things, right? And if we don't have a really good governor, then all those things that people take for granted quite frankly, will fall to the wayside or elect a Democrat and then things will go really bad. You know, like in California and in New York. So I think she does have a point, but I kind of wish she would also stay out of the primary. I don't really think that anybody should be talking about the primary right now. It's too early. It's too early and it's also a little bit toxic.
Dinesh Considers the Future of the House Leadership
"There's a very interesting and perhaps somewhat unexpected challenge to both McCarthy's leadership, Kevin McCarthy's leadership in the house. And Mitch McConnell's in the Senate. Now the house is almost certainly going to be in the hands of the GOP. There is some races still undecided, but Republicans are ahead of the Democrats substantially and should be able to get to the majority fairly easily. So McCarthy is almost certainly going to be the Speaker of the House. Or at least the Republicans will have a chance to choose a speaker. Now McCarthy has always, this guy is like a frat boy. I mean, he basically has got everyone in his pocket. They're all his buddies. They like to go, you know, eat steak with him and have a glass of wine. So he's been able to kind of glad hand his way to the leadership. And there's no doubt that he does have those personal qualities of affability and, you know, everybody likes Kevin McCarthy, but we're in a little bit of a precarious situation. And if you agree that we are in, let's call it Cold War combat mode, then we actually need a combat general. And I think Republicans are beginning to realize this. I'm not saying they're going to be able to prevent McCarthy from getting the leadership because as far as I can see, there's nobody else, perhaps Jim Jordan, who has the ability to run toe to toe with McCarthy and maybe give him a race and these positions are really important because when you come in as an elected congressman or senator, in a sense, you're almost giving up your power to your leader because your leader then controls committees controls appointments, controls the agenda, decide what bills advance and so on. So this is a very important decision. And I think that the house, the freedom caucus, by the way, Marjorie Taylor Greene is in there, Matt, Gates is in there. So these are people who might be able to exercise leverage on McCarthy and basically say, listen, no Democrats going to vote for you. You need the Republicans to kind of line up behind you. But we're not going to, unless we get certain agreements, concessions, and specific authorizations from you now in advance.
Joe Biden's Agenda Is Done With a Republican House
"Let me just put this in perspective so you know the electoral count three states out. If we get two of the three states, we have control of the Senate. We're going to take control of the House. There doesn't seem to be any path at all for the Democrats to take it. They got to win, of course, at this point, nothing could shut off me. But I'm feeling really confident and I think we all feel pretty good about House majority to the Republican Party. We have fired Nancy Pelosi. We flip the house. That's a huge story. Joe Biden's agenda is done. His radical agenda is finished, and maybe even more importantly, with House majority to the Republicans, with Republican control of the House, they'll be investigations over Hunter Biden. They'll be investigations over Joe Biden. They'll be investigations into the corrupt Democrats. Get ready Marjorie Taylor Greene. Come on. Come on, Jim Jordan. Come on, Steve scalise. Come on, Kevin McCarthy. There's going to be a new sheriff in town in January, and it's going to be glorious. They lost, they got their butts beat. No way around it. And you get your rear end whipped, whether you lose by one at the end of the game or you lose by a hundred. They lost.
Democrats Didn't Fear Trump's Failure, They Feared His Success
"Of the Republicans, you know what? I was thinking about this the other day. And I have been talking about this on my podcast in elsewhere. That the Democrats and the left did not fear Donald Trump's failure. You know, they used to say, always going to be a failure. He's going to get us into World War three and all this stuff. That was all nonsense. They did not fear his failure. They feared his success. Because they knew that if he succeeded, he'd expose all of their fraud and hypocrisy and the depth of corruption and rock in Washington, et cetera, which she has done and continues to do. But more so, they feared his success because they knew that that would give rise to hundreds, if not thousands of other America first candidates and leaders. And that is exactly what's happened. You'll notice that from Carrie Lake to Herschel Walker damn Baltic in New Hampshire across the board. These are for the most part, America first candidates. You know, it's much easier said for the left and the deep state and permanent bureaucracy to try to take down one man Donald Trump. They haven't succeeded, but it's much easier for them to target one guy and try to remove him as a political force. It's much more difficult for them to try to squash hundreds of them carry Lake Marjorie Taylor Greene. Matt Gaetz, Donald Trump, all of them, and all of us. It's much more difficult.
Ali Velshi Understands Katie Hobbs Not Wanting to Debate Lies
"It's interesting. You tweeted, Katie Hobbs, the midterms are a choice between sanity or chaos. I wonder where you come down on her not debating thing. I was talking about politics girl. I'm sure you've seen her on Twitter's terrific. But she said, you know, her first instinct is, oh, she should, why wouldn't she? But her conclusion at the end is she understands why she's not and supports that because I understand it. I'll say, let's look at the examples, right? Of debates that work in debates that don't work. Herschel Walker and Raphael Warnock, in my opinion, worked. Because Rafa were not didn't have to do anything. Herschel even just stand on stage with Herschel Walker and that's all you have to do. So that worked. In my opinion. I think that there's a guy running against Marjorie Taylor green, who, you know, normally there isn't even a candidate running against her. And he debated her. And I thought, it's not going to win him any votes in that district, but I thought it worked because he came across as, hey, I'm a thoughtful, interesting person. Yeah. Carrie Lake is on another planet. Yeah. Right? She's not very good at television. Her rally seemed like rock concerts. I don't know. On one hand, you know, Katie Hobbs is a measured exactly the person you want is the Secretary of State. She's a measured person. She's terrified. And talk about it. Talk about courage.

So politics zero point was basically, it's like wrestling with a pig. You know, you both get dirty, but the people likes it. Oh, I get it?

And I don't want to, I don't want to, I don't want to second guess anybody's decision because I think it's offensive to debate. I think it's great to debate almost everything, except lies,

"The storied legacy of Mercedes Benz is rooted in empowered women who've gone on to show the world what they can accomplish. This July will manica has teamed up with Mercedes Benz to feature women who've charted their own paths and achieved greatness. Join us on this journey as we celebrate women who were driven to pursue their passions. Even if it meant changing course along the way. This month on romantica, we're talking about dynamos. Hello. From wonder media network, I'm Jenny Kaplan, and this is will manica. This month we're highlighting dynamos, women who led dynamic lives that shifted evolved and bloomed, often later in life. Our story today features an unlikely mathematician. She didn't get more than a year of high school math education. And yet, she discovered geometric patterns that had never been found before. Let's talk about the surprising Marjorie rice. Marjorie was born in 1923 in Florida. Shortly after, her family moved to a farm in southern Oregon. There she attended a one room country school where she quickly showed an aptitude for math. Marjorie later wrote, arithmetic was easy, and I like to discover the reasons behind the methods we used. As a teen, Marjorie's family moved back to Florida. She enrolled in the local high school, where she followed a more traditional secretarial track. She took the required general math course, but beyond that, she didn't pursue mathematics or science. Marjorie went on to work a handful of jobs before getting married in 1945 at the age of 22. She and her new husband, Gilbert, moved to San Diego and started a large family. Gilbert and Marjorie raised their family with traditional Christian values and gender roles. Marjorie took on the role of homemaker and focused on raising the children. When her eldest son was in junior high, she assisted with his math homework. She learned a new style of math alongside him. Marjorie later wrote, I could often find solutions to his problems by unorthodox means, since I did not know the correct procedures. I enjoyed puzzles of all kinds. Marjorie's life changed course when she got her youngest son a subscription to scientific American. While the magazine was technically a gift, Marjorie allowed herself the indulgence of reading it while her children were at school. She was particularly interested in the mathematical games column written by Martin Gardner. In December of 1975, the column sent Marjorie down an unexpected path. The column revolved around a math concept called tiling the plane. Also known as tessellation. For non mathematicians, this phenomenon occurs when a shape can repeat and cover a flat surface without gaps or overlapping. If you think of square tiles that obviously works. But circles that would leave gaps. Martin Gardner and other mathematicians were interested in how that rule applied to shapes with more sides, like pentagons. At the time, mathematicians believe that just 8 types of convex pentagons could tie all the plane. That is, until a scientific American reader found another type of Pentagon that worked. This led Martin Gardner to suggest perhaps additional types existed. Marjorie was hooked. She set out to find her own examples of tiling pentagons. In a later interview Marjorie recalled, I thought, my, that must be wonderful that someone could discover these things which no one had seen before. These beautiful patterns. She didn't have any formal training in geometry, so Marjorie developed her own notation systems to organize the known types of tiling pentagons. She worked in secret while home alone. Just two months later, in February of 1976, Marjorie discovered a new type of tessellating Pentagon. Giddy, she sent her findings to Martin Gardner himself. He passed them along to a tiling expert, Doris shot Schneider at moravian college in Pennsylvania. Doris verified that Marjorie's discovery was indeed accurate and began corresponding with her directly. Dora sent Marjorie articles about tiling which spurred further research. In December of that same year, Marjorie discovered two additional types of tiling pentagons. A year later, she found another. Marjorie had found four new Pentagon patterns in total. All the while, Marjorie didn't reveal her mathematical breakthroughs to her family or anyone else really. It's largely thanks to Doris that we know about those contributions to mathematics today. It wasn't until Marjorie's accolades started mounting that her children found out about their mother's unique copy. In the 1990s, she was interviewed for the documentary, the nature of things. One of her patterns was even transformed into ceramic tiles for the foyer of the mathematical association of America headquarters in Washington, D.C.. Marjorie never lectured on her discoveries, always insisting she was far too shy. But at one of Doris lectures to the mathematical association of America, Doris introduced Marjorie. Marjorie stood, and in response, the audience rose to their feet and gave her a standing ovation. Marjorie lived with dementia for the last decade of her life. This meant she didn't learn about the end of this Pentagon tiling story. In 2017, another scientist with help from a computer program determined that all of the possible tessellating pentagons had been discovered. Four of the total 15 were Marjorie's. Marjorie died that same year, in 2017. She never stopped exploring these math puzzles. Her daughter said Marjorie always did it just for the sake of discovery. All month were highlighting dynamos. For.

We're against drafting our daughters strapping young women. Especially when there's seventeen million young men eighteen to twenty five already signed up the flex services and our current Active duty military forces or at one point three million. And we're not even at war so there's no need to even be talking about drafting women at sample ridiculous. Of course we know women are capable and they're equal but we're just not into drafting our daughters our our wives and and don't think that that's that's necessary. It's another one of those Racing gender you know social issues. It's just pointless with that we can't trust this.

"Want to put a historical marker and so i just felt like i owed it to her in her life and her legacy to make them as quitting and so living. The role was part of it right. Really yeah it's really incredible certainly marjorie. Your body of work is really something that i know tightly would be very proud that you wrote her story. Because you've really done it all you between writing and being the first woman than the being that you were always which i guess is something again about sports like wanting to be the first in the room the winner the first one to do it that competitive nature is what sports drives us. You know like no one's done it but why can't it be and that is something that i know that you probably have a lot of young women and young men to wonder you know wanting to follow in your footsteps of being the first and doing it and picking up or you kind of have have left off. Well you haven't really left off but were transition light great athletes. You've just kept transitioning because gus you know you've done things you went from lanes professionally doing other things having a great successful podcasts. Like you wanna keep improving professional athlete. Your brain is wired. I need to walk right exactly. And and i think that's that's part of it as you just keep you want wanna keep growing and i say that i made that mistake in the nfl. That i wanted to be a good father. I wanted to be good husband. And and then football mother love right and so i did those things by ayn continue to grow in education and other things which i should have had the opportunities during the off season. So that's probably one little regret i have is. I wish i would have went back. Maybe got my mba or something. like that. and i always tell guys if you have an opportunity to make sure that you continue your education because it's so important because the nfl view they'll pay for it right. it's true yes and there are some that do in emmett smith. He went back. And there's a lotta guys. That do that and i think that's great and i think that if you want to go into something else in life you have to learn. I went into coaching and podcasting. It's just such a high learning curve for everything that you try to do. Then sometimes just kind of go sit in class. Learn a little bit before you dive into. It might help i want. I wanted to ask you okay. So why the cover. Why did you pick this picture. Okay well harpercollins out of new york is one of the biggest publishing houses in in the world. And so i had no say in the picture and what's interesting though is that My editor she sent me an email and said i'm sending you a copy of cover. If you have any suggestions or changes let me know a pass them onto the art department. But i'll tell you right now. You don't so no matter. what so. I actually did say could you footprint on the dress could you trees because it's in the up yukon valley. Would you abbott airplane. That looks benthic and they actually did all the things that i asked my editor shock but i loved the cover that for two reasons. One the the woman that is the model for the cover looks exactly like my mother looked like when she was that age. Exactly like my mother. And so i couldn't believe when i saw it and then the second thing is my husband came up with the title of the book so he loves it. Because you know. I write tens and tens and tens and tens of thousands of words. He writes five and he gets the cover. Gee i wonder how many times he tells you about that. Yes i know. I'd never let my wife forget. He doesn't well marjorie. Tell us about what's happening now with when the men were gone. Well just yesterday. I got some pretty good news. We're under contract with a couple of of a dump producers and they already have a a studio that i can't give the name of yet because it's not a announced yet but they're working with a studio and that studio assigned to screenwriter and i've seen the treatment for the draft we zoom. We went on and Went over what what probably was necessary to be included and now they're looking for attachments and we should know in the next maybe four to six weeks who we might have directing the film and and maybe even shortly after that will be playing timeline so i am just beyond thrilled. It's just. I still can't believe this is half as awesome. Who would you like to see. Play tai lean. Well they'll get mad at me by saying anything I know when i was still riding in. I was sort of thinking of any atoms. I mean i wrote with picture of the real titling next to my computer. So i was always thinking about her but there are a lot of people that i think would be. You know fantastic. I will. She tiling like she feisty she fiery like you know what i mean like all that plays into who yes. She's kind of calm cool and collected. She was a combination of both. She kind of knew how to pick her spots and so she wasn't like a comedian so she's not like hilarious funny or anything like that but but she was very driven very determined and and she could go toe to toe with anybody so she was tough but she was also very warm. You know she was protecting the boys you know. She didn't want them to go off to war until they were men. Finished your childhood and then go do what men do right right. Yeah that that's amazing. What a what a great story and so for both of you who were strong women. What would you say are fans who are women in and that are trying to make a next step for different transition life. What advice would you give them. So marnie tell me a little bit then marjorie ligo. Well i think for me. It was really a. I'm so grateful that there are so many amazing women out there or men that really understand the value of what we are what we can bring to the table so for other women other young women out there just know your value and find the people. Try to find the people that will be your cheerleaders. Not everybody's whatever you are. They'll find your cheerleaders cheer for them. Let them cheer for you. And i just remember that ultimately you're going to get there like befall inch-by-inch every you know. Just keep moving the ball down the field and you will get there but definitely try to find your cheerleaders and there might just be want your leader and that's okay because all it takes one cheerleader cheering for you. You'll you'll get their awesome marjorie. What advice you would give somebody. I've had a lot of people. Ask me this That sounds they come up to me and they say i wanted to be a sports writer too but i got a few knows and i just change directions and and so you know. They regretted it they like. Why didn't i just persist at. That's what i wanted to do. So i would tell them in are to be doors that close but if you keep going after it they're gonna there's going to be a door that opens and so don't give up. Just keep going keep going and and it's like the advice. My mom gave me when i was little. There was no such thing as nike at the time. But when i would tell her anything that i wanted to do Would just look.

"And and i'm finding out about tiny wilson and all of her coaching. And all of a sudden i just got like i want to get on the field so when when texas wesley brought its football program back. For the first time in twenty seventeen it had disbanded in nineteen forty two shortly after harper happened and the football team. Just wanna share the conference championship. But they all decided to go serve the country and the team disbanded so so now they're coming back for the first time in two thousand seventeen in the school didn't have much of a budget. So a lot of their coaches had to be volunteers and slow. I went in. I met with the head coach and told him. I wanted to be one of the volunteers. He asked me what position. Do you want to volunteer. And i said. I would like to work with with the wide receivers. He said okay. And the siamese defensive backs and linebackers and and so i just started scouting did scouting reports. And i worked with players on the field. We have practices at five forty five six forty six o'clock in the morning because there was no field so we had to use a local high school and we would show up in. It was dark and the lights. Were on week of here. The roosters in in the neighborhood and we'd practice until the sun came out and it was very surreal. But but yeah. I during games. I was the headset and i'll have to save one thing Whenever i'm watching football. And i see the head. Coach chewing gum into the headset still cringe. Because we're all listening to the jumping up in up in the. But i had a great working relationship with athletes. I just heard tiling did during her journey that if these young men no you have some sort of knowledge or something that you can bring to them that will make them better that than it doesn't matter that you didn't play it or that you were not a man so it worked out very nicely marnie. You ever wanted to coach football. But you know what i feel like having two boys that football while i'm not the official all have not been on the field. Coaching being a mom in an advocate of teenagers playing sports. I think that i've done a little bit of a behind the scenes coaching. But sure i think marjorie ninety to not talk about picking up and doing some coaching together. So i mean. Coaching is really about being a lino. Got you know you coach. Coaching a lot of it's about strategy and so forth but about being a leader both on and off the field and that to me. It's interesting it's like. I look back at some of these coaches and the players that played for them. The ones that seemed to be really successful had great coaches that really taught them. Leadership skills like coach from so many people that played under coach. Meal have gone on have tremendous success after the football you know and so i think that the great coach it's about really being a great leader and a great football online which you know is i don't know if i have a good football i don't know if i have a good football mind but i don't know if i have a football mind as some of these guys are so good. These guys that coaching. You're not taught that right. I wasn't. I coached high school. Football coach ezekiel elliott marjorie. I don't know if you knew that in high school. Yeah so and you know and you go in from the nfl. And you're saying okay. I know a lot about football and football right. I been doing this for twenty five years. I should be able to coach. But there's so many other aspects to coaching that you don't know about right. You aren't taught like cause you i've dealt with. Nfl coaches for fifteen years. And they're dealing with other men all of a sudden you're dealing with these kids in high school and so many things that i had to learn and so many things that i screwed up and i'd have to apologize for and and you know. Make sure the kids knew that. I was for them and not against them and in change the whole way i talked because people without that knowledge. You have to treat them like they don't know all the time and they don't write my true my my father-in-law my wife's dad coached football for forty two years. Who has telling you about the winter. New mexico state. He tells a great story he said look. I went out and coached a kid told him to get in a three point. Stance eight put three fingers down bent over and put his hand down. He said okay. What's this guy doing. He's getting the two point stance. He put two fingers down gotten a stance and he said all right getting a four point stance. He put forefingers down. He said that just made me realize that you know you. You can't assume as a coach at anybody knows what they're talking about. You really have to teach and coach and be a leader the very very basic very basic Boom and that is so true and even beyond that. They've got so many things going on in their lives and And they need somebody that they can talk to as well and and then they also you know one of the things. That really bothered me. When when i first started coaching at texas wesleyan is the practices. Were so quiet and i just felt like nobody knows each other. They don't know each other they don't know how to take to pull for each other. They weren't connected yet. You know. I mean i just feel like quite practice is not a good practice and and so there are just so many things that you don't need to think about that all of a sudden present themselves. Yeah yeah it's always a learning experience so tell me a little bit about how now you've gone to coaching. And you start thinking about thailand. I can't imagine like you're going to write this story about her. And now you're coaching you and it just to me. It seems so surreal. That that's the path you took and that's the story you wrote. Yeah well you know. I wanted to her story to be so optic because she's a a real person you know. Even though it's a novel i didn't just make up in my head and create a story. I had to be very true to her story and to who she is. And you know. I've always taught at the university level which is helped me in coaching. Because i've been around kids at age on. But but i teach media ethics also at the university of north texas and not an ethical obligation to her legacy and and and so. I had to do a lot of research to make antic and newspaper clippings where i could see direct quotes and know how she spoke and and i had to get to know who she was. Because i wrote the book as you know in first person and so i became timeline. Essentially telling the readers which she would want us to know. And and i think having that experience on the field like when i worked at walked on the football field for the first time in a coach's role i just couldn't stop looking at my feet thinking. These are feet of a football coach on a football field. Goal was really. It was a pretty awesome moment but So so yeah. I just had to connect with her and her story and as a result they gotta room in the press box at the football high school football field. Call the tyler wilson room. They i- rhythm for the exhibit at the app for herds. Visit the round county museum of history. Just today. i got an email from somebody wanted to ask was.

"Jr and and and covered a lot of amazing athletes. Who went on to be doctors and lawyers and teachers professors. I loved it. I loved it. D three seems to be like the guys who really want to keep playing like. There's just love of football right. it's not gonna be like your alabama's where it's all the spectacular stuff but guys And people who want to just go out and continue to play and you know what's funny is my i d three game after seeing. Nfl game my brain was so wired for the speed of the nfl. That when i saw my i d three game. I could sworn they were running backward. I mean it was so slow that it took a while for my brain to adjust Yeah i can see. That definitely happened happening. Yeah i mean morning so you probably can relate to marjorie and her girls being out in the field and you know when you. You've probably ran around the stadium in philadelphia all the time i did you know and when you talk about the play of the of a professional football game often my grandfather would take me on the field during a game. It would really upset my mother because she was like dad. You know. she's a little person and the pace of play ball flying everywhere. You don't know an nfl game where they're gonna wind up. I love the excitement of it of just being on the field. There's nothing more exciting than being on a football field. Whatever it is whether it's a d. Three are professional football field. There's something about just running around and seeing what's going on and being in the middle of the action is so great and i love it. You know you taught your daughters. Obviously the same love of passion that you have for football that that i i have to and it really is something that i think is great for young women to to speak football and then you become marjorie. Like people know. Oh she's the football lady. Which is kind of a little bit. And i wanted to share the story about how you ended up learning about. You know how when the men were gone how that can into action because you really because everyone knows. You're the football eighty. Yeah yeah so. I found out about timeline wilson. When i went to get allergy shots and i was wearing a t shirt at had the university of tulsa. And i get out. And the allergist this nurse. Jean then she sees me and she says oh a woman who loves football due to all the women in my family love football because my great aunt was a football coach. And i was like your once and i and she says my great aunt and and i was trying not to hyperventilate. That i'm hearing a story like this. And i asked her. I said where was this. And she says brownwood texas now if you know. High school. Football in texas brownwood is one of the more iconic cities a little towns They had just had a famous football coach. Gordon would their stadiums named after him he had won seven state championships around. Would and and i was just like oh my gosh and i said when was it and she said during world war two and my father was a world war. Two veterans have always been fascinated by that part of history. So i started asking her all kinds of questions by the time i left my appointment. She astor she would let me write to her aunt's biography and she said that would be wonderful. Unfortunately her aunt story much of it was lost to time. So i wrote a novel based around everything that i knew to be true and i found that in my research and i had a lot of similarities and so i think my life experiences i bring that into the story i. I don't think i could have written her story. With such a level of autheniticity had i not had the experiences i had as a as a sports editor that sports writers so so it was just like let landed on my lap in his totally changed my life yet no. That's that's wonderful. So hey everyone we're gonna take a little quick break here and we'll be right back we're talking with marjorie harar lewis and her book when the men were gone.

Who knew exactly what i'm talking about but He brought his own clippers one time and he used the tribune's beard up as goatee and everything and he had there for about two or three weeks and he goes in and around the corner he walks in. And there's a person another player that has actually manscaping with his beard. Trevor so one of the things is you. Don't wanna use the same trim down there that you use up here. He kinda freaked out a little bit. He said hey. We've been using that tool there. And he said well showed up here about three weeks ago. And i've been using it ever since so you know there is a lesson learned that You know don't leave things out and probably if it would have just said manscaping on it. We wouldn't have had that issue but it's probably one of the funniest taking care of your role stories. I've ever heard or been around. So it's a great story. But you know i always said there was no way to know no name on it and the guy was just using it and another guy was using. It was not good. But it's a heck of a funny story so one of the best.

"Then. I think what the eighties were like. And then when the nineties happened and they start winning all the super bowl i mean. I was in washington at that time. And i had to play against all of that so they were pretty good. They are and even though it wasn't covering the team anymore during those nineties seasons where they were winning super bowls. I was doing a lot of feature stories so so you know. I do a day in the life at troy aikman day in the life of michael irvin. I got to know those guys pretty well too. That's amazing marjorie. I mean so. Also you're able to really track something like eighties without technology and then going into i mean so. That's another whole thing that all the resources that writers have available now. How did you do your homework. I mean how did you get prepared for the games to actually then go and then write a really comprehensive story about that you talked to a lotta people lots of people and you had to have respect within the organization they were gonna tell you things you know and so So that i was very fortunate to have a lot of people within the organization who trusted me enough to talk to me a lot and so that's really what it was it. Just you know the cowboys. In those days tech schramm the minute you became a beat writer. He would give you a list of all the coaches and ministration people. The football players their phone numbers their home address. We have total access to everybody at any time. Isn't that i know it's really amazing. It was so different. I know my grandfather was a big fan of tax emergencies. But that is so different now when you think when you think about how now yes but tex really believed in in the The idea of getting the names out getting the coverage getting wanted to make is easy for us to interview. Get information now. Did he always like it. Sometimes he'd call me cussing you know so that was okay too because usually when he was mad about something yet you broke. It's because he knew you're right and it just didn't work out there yet but but but but that was it. I talked to a lot of people. I had really good working relationships with the at the players coaches and And and it really worked in my favorite. I was very grateful for that. I have to say at one point. When i was first hired at the start telling him as a sports writer not necessarily a cowboys writer. My sports editor the first day. That i got to work he asked me. If you're ever put on a cowboys. Beat how would you handle it. And i told him. I'd never forget that the athletes were people. I would be there. I would always try to get different sides to situation. And that's what i've done with college in high school athletes. I don't look at them as a commodity or a news story that their people and he looked at me and he said you'll never make it in this business. And i was like won't so two years later. A new sports editor puts me on the beat. And what happens in the middle of my first seats and covering the cowboys i get a call from. Nfl game day magazine. They want write the the lead story for their magazine. That would be placed in stadiums across the country. I couldn't do it because of conflict of interest. But i asked him. Where are you asking me. And they simply because we think the best. Nfl writer in the country. This was nineteen eighty six. So something i did work. Even though my boss told me i would never make. Wow that's amazing and also the story of of your first press box experience. Can you tell us a little bit about that. 'cause i understand like you know. There's mutual respect between you and the and coaches. That's kind of how we're all brought up and taught right but you're competing. It's all these other guys in the press box in you walk in and tell us a little bit about that dynamic would probably a little bit different. That was something. I really didn't even expect but what happened is i walk into the press box for the first game which was going to be an exhibition. Game and traditionally like in every. Nfl press fox. You have the front row is reserved for beat writers and and maybe a columnist so we have traditionally to beat writers. Each of the papers had to beat writers and columnists with are three seats in the front row. So i walk in and i go to. It didn't have our names on it. Beat writer and i went my set at a beat broader spot in the front row and i'm sitting there unpacking my computer. My bag getting ready for for the game and my telephone rings. And i pick it up in his my sports editor and he says the guys just called me. They're they're really upset. What's going on out there. And i'm like what are you talking about. Apparently somebody's in the front row. That's not supposed to be there. And i'm thinking Nobody else had sat down. So of course i knew it was talking about and i said well. Who do you think it is. And he said well is it and he starts throwing out all these names of people that were going to be there to write Some some features or something else and and finally after he'd gone through this list of men he says you and i said yes. It's me and you know what his response was. He said. Get back there. And i might get back there and i just said to him. You know what. I'm beat writer and the beat writers sit in the front row and i am not moving unless you take me off the beat. Now then i'll move. But otherwise if i'm still in the b. i'm sitting here and i'm not moving and so he said okay. You handle the guys. And i said no problem okay and then not one of approach me and i sat there for years right now. That's awesome and that's kind of what you have to do. It's not an you know when you stand up for yourself you're not necessarily standing up in a mean way or anything you're just you're just who you are and people respect that and i think that's probably what would sounds like what happened to me. I was just doing my job. I mean the only thing that is different with me in any other beat writer was that i was emailing if the seats were for the beat writers. And that's where. I was gonna sit right. That's that's amazing marjorie. But i definitely think you know which is the whole theme of you know gusts show about sports kind of bringing everybody together and really educating us on the playing field. So you're playing. Field was no being a beat writer and that was it. You were suited up to play and you want that job and you were going to do everything you could to protect that job and you did nats miss and the relationships changed over over a very short period of time the my colleagues and competitors really warrant you know they brought me into the into the the clubs so to speak and we had great relationships. In fact it was randy galloway. You've probably heard of him if you're familiar with the fort worth area but without Newspaper industry but he's the one that brought me over to the taos morning news we were competitors and he said we're tired of u- kicking us in the fanny come over work with us and i. Do you think that was the moment that you realized that was there one moment where like okay. Wait a minute. I got this. Was there a moment that you realized that or was that it or how did that. I think the moment was the west or getting treated in the press box. Everybody i felt like everybody had warmed up to me. I think at first. When i showed up they were just it was just new and different and they didn't know how to respond but it didn't take long for them to see that i was a student of the game. I knew what. I was writing that what i was talking about and we ended up on road trips. And everything all going out to dinner together and we play on softball teams together and when the cowboys played the bears in london. I was part of the taos fort worth media softball team and we played against the chicago.

So no but it's a good idea in the animated version it will. We will make sure that happens. And that's something lots of fun. I mean i remember being down in tampa bay as a young girl when my grandfather on the eagles and the colors of tampa bay were that crimson color which was such a fun color to to see on the field. Now it's a little more. Their colors are a little more dangerous. Now i would say but that's going for yes. Color generally put fear into anybody's heartache.

Can you please just tell her that. I'm a fan. And i wanted to talk to her. Because i'm really so obsessed with this book and then she was so gracious and extended an opportunity for us to communicate. And then i was really i girl out on our and i'm so glad that i did. Because then i got to know a little bit about marjorie and why this book one when the men were gone so special and so amazing because marjorie tells the story and obviously she wrote the book. Although i really wish i had written a book because i love it so much about these amazing people that were at a time and place and i'm going to let marjorie share all. Her net really overcame obstacles. And that's one of the things. I love about football. Is that like really anybody. If you have some passion and drive and grit you can play. You can coach.

I'm out in santa fe new mexico and so i'm out of the dallas fort worth for a little while i'm doing doing well and enjoying this life. Experiences journey has been taking me ever since the book out. Well i think your journey has been incredible. Ever since you've been in high school you know just just in what you've done and everything i've read about you you you've been a i and so many and and you've just been and i think the the best thing i read that i love the most is when you talk about your mom and how she really pushed you guys to be the first in so many things and i think that was great. Can you tell us a little bit about your childhood and how you fell in love with sports. Both my parents are were sports fanatics and they pass that onto me. I'm one of the second of five children that it all resonated with me the most even more so than my brother who's the youngest although he had the opportunity to play more sports at the varsity level than i didn't really exist legit at when i was in high school but if you were to look at pictures of my parents when they were dating in the early fifties almost every picture is in a gym or on a ten score at a baseball field so my father went on to play baseball at college california and And my mother you know she. She living in santa fe new mexico. She could have given us the starting lineup for the university of rhode island. I mean she just knew everything about sports and so it was something we shared. My father taught me how to catch his curve ball and and his fastball. I was about nine or ten years old and my mother taught taught me how to throw a spiral shape. She's the one that kind of connected with two football. My dad was more baseball and basketball. And then a little while so it just is in my blood. I knew that. If i couldn't be college or nfl quarterback. I was going to be at least somehow involved with the game. And that's how i became a sportswriter writer. I think that's that's incredible until tell us a little bit about. I mean you said you didn't really play many sports when i was reading your bio. It said you've played a lot of sports. I mean so. What was your experience like in how your high school sports experience push you to.

Note i just think it's so fascinating that real people who aren't ready for stardom don't know what it is. Go on this show. That it's like i said trending number one. Everybody watches it. And it just ball to this place and it must be so surreal. I think about it. As i started as somebody who was in a college dorm one day and on national television the next day on the tonight show and i always assumed i was going to be famous so i was like reading. You remember that. I've watched bunch of different things. I never had one line. You really have is like i'm a talker. Now when you're on the tucker now. Yeah when i lost weight.

Was there a moment of what the fuck have i done. It's not a whole lot because we did get so much. I think if it would have gone the other way we have more like what the hell did. I do and i kind of going back to what we were talking about earlier like we do not the shelter the fan base. It is a lot of republican older woman that much on so much accepting of gay individuals in the fact that we've been messages from them saying come a long way real quick We've had so many messages from that.

I want my son or my daughter to find love like beautiful. I want i want this. I want that. I beat had even some teenagers at yankee. Stay in. I don't know why i want to say like this sort of saved your life. Because they realize they weren't alone that they need support in. I always say that about you. Belie comedown like what's his pride of why shoving this downards throw pry bikes but it's true. It's like there's so many kids and young people going to bed at night wondering that there should be dead or alive and that's what they need to know there's other people out there and you can have a perfectly normal life and if your family's not gonna come along with the ride you can choose your family down the line between it's funny you talk about that s- because i i talked earlier in the show but a similar thing about The power of being yourself and what that can do And an even as fully evolved as we are an aboard all on a national platform being on our our authentic selves. It can still even after all these years. Be scary sometimes. And i love that. You're hearing from people that surprise you because a lot of these middle america people who don't know people you may be the first couple they've ever known you withdrawn tv. They think they know exactly and that sort of the theme of this weekend. It's why i well. It's one of two reasons. Why i wanna talk to you. I really wanted for the curtain. Back on ninety. Find out a little bit more. And i have more questions but i also just want to praise you guys for doing it. You're the first male gay couple on that franchise and i hope to see. I hope to see more. Can i just ask apple frivolous questions about the show. Absolutely will try when they do your interviews when you talk to camera are you. Is that really. You're living behind yours a green screen because some people i'm like i know you don't live there. Those are really. They're actually rooms. Start out in a film if you're in a certain home or something that they get It's not always your home. Because i look at some people's the background on my i know i know you're not that tidy.

I'm okay do you hang out with other members of your cast and or other ninety day franchises all because of the pandemic. We haven't had a lot of people were friends with.

But there's no camera around. You're like i'm gonna keep this in intel show really really something. Obviously we talk every day. But you know. If i'm gonna throw a pot or pan. I just wait for the show. This is gonna. What about the sax like when you close that door. Will you have sex time. You shut the door and said we have things to did you go. Did you continue and have sex malone. You're talking about actual scene where they closed our and they close the door and and told the cat said to the camera like we gotta get busy now. You'll get you really have sex. Whether crew was outside your door or to our only fan. I'm just kidding. We don't ask you owning only fan. The happen naturally like they normally would if the cameras weren't there. It was first night that seen each other for nine months. When i moved here.

Do they listen in that case they sure did it was okay. Audio's left that any of it feel like okay.

There's something like with our something like that happened ones where i actually asked like our procedure. Did i say that again. And she said no. We'll just go with it. I like things organic and how they are in. I appreciated that on bread. And they made us continue with our story just being Letting levy we wouldn't have done this or continue this for another season or anything if we thought it was something that was right.

Let me tell you something. We didn't know what to expect because we didn't. I didn't know this. Even being a fan mandating onset before i was even thought about being on the show.

Changes changes culture changes things marjorie up there in oklahoma union. Okay you know she. She may not have ever met a homosexual but she liked it. She likes me.

"Matt gaetz a congresswoman. Marjorie taylor green. I wanna go to the big targets straightaway. I wanna talk about. We'll talk about the gop in a moment. Let's talk about breaking news of the last week of i think it was thursday with e even providing justification with reference to an unpublished appear reviewed indian study The speaker of the house has decreed that everyone has to wear mosques staff members and visitors. Who don't will be arrested. The chief has allegedly climbed back because of things that you guys and your colleagues did. Let's have a little fun. I i said it on my show on thursday. I'm very impressed. That somebody has invented a force field somehow contains cove it in the house but cents so the culture difference with the senate and the house that you guys got to moss nancy. Because thursday she didn't wear moss but in the senate. Nobody has to now so fourth. Let let me start right here. Let's talk about a second. i'm fed up. I am not interested in people telling me that she is the arch. Strategist i think this woman has lost it. She is so she's mari antoinette on steroids and has no even sense of how what she's doing looks like from the outside am i am i crazy. You are totally wrong about this. I believe nancy pelosi is a master. Strategist i believe. She holds power and money over the rank and file and the democratic party. I believe she has greater control over her caucus. Then paul ryan or kevin mccarthy or john bainer ever had so. I don't disrespect the skill of nancy pelosi and think about this. The masks aren't about healthcare. They aren't about mastercard about we know that. So what are they about control. Ashley wants to show a controlled opposition. She wants to show a controlled conference and that increases her power. But we've always been what nancy pelosi spent about. Let me push back in the and then we'll get much to jump in. I'm not talking about her power over her party. Which i think is pretty absolute right But i think a lot of that has to do with power. Relationships have been established over. The last thirty is i'm talking about. Does she have any idea what this will look like to the american population as she wants us depressed. But at this point. Who's gonna trust anything that comes out of her mouth vouchers. Mouth or even democrats want sorry. I'm vaccinated but now my kids. It's coming to an end because like there's a weakness. Now i agree with what matches said which is a master. Strategist i mean. Look at what they're doing. They have everyone focused on the shiny object. Totally the mask. The vaccine passports all the stuff anyway six committee. They're doing all this stuff when really what's happening is socialism the green new deal communist tactics vaginal or border invasion on our border. They're tearing our country to pieces while they have all of us in hysterics over masking vaccine passports and all of this policy doesn't give a damn about covert she did. I should be shutting down the border where there is a mass influx of everything that those illegal aliens are carrying from cova defeating all to whatever. So let's dispense with the notion that she cares about corona virus when she needed votes for political power. She brought people into the chamber of commerce with coast. Are it's about imagery it's about power and you're right they know. They have a crisis of credibility with their embrace of dr fallacy. And what they've put our country and our people through and so they're trying to have us all masked have us all under control with the hopes that the diminution her credibility won't be zero sum. Giving those of us who've been telling the truth more credibility they want us wearing masks they want us in a controlled state. And that's why marjorie was so leading republicans last week marching through the capital massless showing that we are not going to just give in to this tyrant to nancy pelosi regime gene so he his. Let's switch the gop for a second. What what you did last week but both you do the doj and at the prison. Wha- what we wanna see. It's what republican voters want to see every single day. Why is it the one that twelve foot fence went up with the razor wire with the humvee. He's with the force. It takes one of my callers right one of my callers to ring in with this idea. After we see the invasion of illegal immigrants with alexa in biden tee-shirt guy calls up and says you know what i'd like to see the gop with their voters by t shirts that say biden. Nancy lettuce in and go to that fence in dc in their hundreds. I'm sort of cnn. Couldn't ignore you. Nobody could nothing. Zips squash zoli. So here's my my my question to you. Is we know the left. I know the left. My dad was put in prison by communists. He escaped from a communist prison. We understand what they're doing. Is the biggest threat. We face today. Not the establishment. Gop that the biggest threat. We face today is inaction and the refusal to stand up to you. Know what it is you you know like a snow globe with glass. It's really thin glass. It looks like you can't break it but honestly it is so fragile. What means diplomacy pelosi is holding. Together is it's like a bunch of koch tape that the people could go right through. And i don't mean through violence. I mean literally by getting into action and if our gop leadership if republican members of congress would say we've had enough we don't care about the political consultants. We are worried about the polls. We don't about what the media is going to say about us. They would actually get into action. Like matt are. We could completely shatter that glass flows. But you're but you're asking. I think a question that millions of listeners are asking which is who is going to fight for us who is going to lead us. Who can we trust because more and more when you see these typical republicans and their typical talking points. There's not a real belief that they're gonna they're gonna lead us in a battle against the ideas of socialism that would destroy our country that destroyed that ushered destroyed your homeland. So here's my perspective. It is all about the money. Follow the money when republicans get together on capitol hill to have strategy meetings marjorie on. I wanna talk about. Let's fight these mask mandates. Let's stand up for our staff and say they're not going to get arrested because they walk in buildings out of mass and you all the conversations about how do we get. The lobbyists and the political action committees to donate to us again literally at the last meeting. We had. That should have been about these issues that we're discussing on america first radio. The principal issue discussed was money and about how re-ingratiate ourselves to the lobby. I'll it was. It's unbelievable willie at one meeting this week while all the stuff is happening the country's on fire we had one meeting one conference meeting and it was all about fundraising where there were charts giant charts. About how much each each of us have raised and donated to the in our c. c. shut like shaming charts and. Then there were alter calls donate your money. Donate your money. So this is what's happening. You know when they should have been doing. We should have been meeting every single day for as long as we could to figure out how to fight and stop this insane ity and communist whatever i feel your blood pressure rising and so i want you to take a breath here and realized this as well. The people giving the money want the free flow of illegal immigrants across the border. Those issues are tied if you want to know why. Every republican in america is it raising cain every hour of every day about the border. It's because they think if they're soft or tepid on the border that may be the packs that want cheap labor will again find them in their favor moved back them You're not helping my blood pressure. This is it's the truth. And i'm gonna share a story with you. Guys a story with millions of listen views we have right now so I'm sebastian gorka. We're talking to congresswoman module. Taylor green from georgia congressman matt gaetz of florida. It might be a cliche when you say you are what you eat. But it is absolutely true. Eating the right food in your body gets the nutrients it needs to maintain your health and that includes whether you like it or not guys them..
"marjorie" Discussed on Breaking the Glass Slipper: Women in science fiction, fantasy, and horror
"As opposed to you know the dish best of cold because if it is sort of premeditated and planned out revenge is it harder to actually portray that over here and have them remain the hero pitfalls are the same. I mean certainly. I certainly the reader and the viewer is. Is you know we are trained to be more accepting but i think that at the end of the day for really talking about the root of these narratives. Each one prevents morning each one as a distraction from reflection. He'll like unpremeditated. Rage is cleaner in the sense that it's a spontaneous explosion of emotional and physical energy sort of like a volcano. But like then what do you just double down on that unpremeditated rage and lit hardened something cold and calculated or will you mourn. I think about the crow. Which is i think movie that does that. Well where we have these outside characters. Remember eric driven in the before times you know who keep him focused on his humanity and his grief and not just revealed his revenge. But i think you know cold calculated revenge. I mean honestly. I think they're about this. I mean i know they should be different. But i think ultimately they they're they have the same result they have the same result and they have the same. You know the same route. 'cause i was just thinking about actually. The mike was saying about the dish. Best of cold in the explosion of rage reminds me of the in france. They say it's a crime of passion as opposed to premeditation. And i think don't quote me illness. But i feel like that carries a lesser sentence than premeditated murder. But what if. Joe what if what if the outcomes the same though someone is yeah someone is not exactly exactly you know. It's all of your attention right that somehow if you if you Premeditate cold and calculating plan. Someone's murder that you are somehow more evil. You know that you intentionally causes person's death at you at any point could have stopped. You could've stopped yourself right and and just say you know i'm gonna make make a choice to not do this but instead premeditation means that you just double down like you just kept going and going and going and you. Continuously made the choice to not stop whereas when you just exploded with rage is when it's quote unquote a crime of passion. There is no. The assumption is that there was no. There was no choice to be made that the moment between your rage and your action was so small that you just. You just didn't even have time to make a choice to the you just you just exploded and the person was dead and so it's that in some ways that lack of continued that lack of continued choice right. That makes the difference. Because you're not. You're not taking the time to really think about this so thinking about cycles of revenge obviously a really famous example is a montagues and the capulets remun- juliette they simply just keep on killing each other opinions. Nobody shakes Yeah he makes a better drama right. Star-crossed love against such a dramatic trolled. But this is these. These is idea of light. Endless vengeance with no resolution is quite common through history and literature..
"marjorie" Discussed on The Guardian UK: Politics Weekly
"I mean one thing that's striking when you hit that. Of course we we expect in a way now. The universe the republican universe to support somebody like modules green. Perhaps we have become used to that but in some ways. It's slightly more shocking. The reaction on the democratic side. Brad schneider of illinois congressman is introduced a censure resolution against taylor green that's just sort of big congressional condemnation but quite noticeable the top party officials in the democratic party. Nancy pelosi as speaker of the house have stopped short of calling for taylor green to be expelled for example from congress and preferring instead to say that she should just keep your mouth shut. I mean we get the fear on the republican side only explains why democrats would hesitate at throwing the and throwing it really hard to act mt g right so i think that there is some hesitation among among democrats to throw more attention on marjorie taylor green. Of course they've condemned her most recent comments about the holocaust. But i think that there is some fear that if they try to punish her again as they did in february when they removed from her committees that they may end up actually kind of fueling her rise giving her even more attention in the form of for example. A censure vote yes we know that you create to kind of republican martyr potentially and she's already so massive in the kind of fox news and one america news network world. You don't wanna make even bigger so you know you get that lead stirred interesting contrast that isn't it because it means that even democrats who were very very quick to deal a leadership level to deal with accusations for example of anti semitism when they appeared on their own side and speak of blazey did ask for example congresswoman ilhan omar to apologize when she made comments. I think suggesting that you know support. For the pro is our organization apec was in all about the benjamins all about money and that seemed to a lot of people have an unfortunate echo and their historically and that's he plays he was right on that and yet not going in for the jugular when it comes to somebody on the other side of the political aisle right yes and i think that a republicans have certainly jones on that on that dynamic as well. I think that one of the reasons why actually House minority leader kevin mccarthy condemned greenslade comments about the holocaust is because republicans have been trying more recently to paints a democrats as antisemitic because many progressives our voice criticism of israel during the recent By attacks between israeli forces and hamas in gaza and so it is definitely a dynamic that republicans are eager to jump on. And they're hoping to use that to their benefit as they look to the twenty twenty. Two midterms is that they are trying to paint democrats as antisemitic. And so that's why marjorie taylor. Greens i think did spark some form of statement at least from mccarthy condemning her that comparison because it didn't exactly help their efforts a level. Those kind of allegations against let.
