"We'll have like correctly you know so I don't know it's it's a weird weird one and it's bizarrely. Also a trump issue because weeks ago trump had latched on this apparently at the behest of his wife and daughter are had come out in as wanting to ban and I believe it was it is within the scope of the executive offices powers to issue. Yes yeah the. FDA had this regulatory authority over tobacco in the two thousand nine law so they could have banned it. Trump said he was going onto the guests milanez engagement with Barron and his peers And then there was this intense frankly idiotic lobbying pushback which showed him like polling like all these single issue vape voters out there. WE'RE GONNA turn against him but gets it's a technical issue. He has a reasonable. FDA Chair That some parts of the government are still being run by professionals. It's and honestly this is like need to ask the scientists and the public health people to take a take a look at it and trump's initial idea that the the flavored ones you know really target a new market that sounded reasonable to me the Dominican. It's not it's not my area but this this really is what we have regulatory agencies or Seem strange for me for apple to jump the gun on this way right even though it's it's reasonable idea but also it seemed. It seemed odd to to me that the nobody was quite pushing for it and it seems like the deaths are maybe related to like unreliable use of the mechanisms and black market stuff. So it might be counterproductive productive and I. It's just like it's a hard question and I. I don't know why they exactly felt they had to like dive into it. And it's far more controversial. We're not talking about you and talking about vape at all let alone apples relation to if apple hadn't done this right. It just wasn't even on my radar like you said I honestly I didn't even know their words such things as Vape apps and then I can take. I didn't perceive that they were facing like a tidal wave of criticism. No the other who knows maybe they have. I don't know parents in the company who cared. I make my kids four. So fortunately he's not he's under the vaping demel minus fifteen going on sixteen so take my wife has said to him like a thousand times if I ever catch you babbling your dead. Yeah well we meet. We need his take. He's the editor of the relevant expert. No there was like a thing in the newsletter from the parents last year there was scan. A couple of kids got caught vaping in the bathroom. And the whole big thing and laying out and of course you know the numbers crazy in doing well. The numbers are crazy. I looked at these pew. Research numbers on their polling against Pugh is pretty reputable does you know. Re- regarded as a good pollster that it Twenty sixteen thirteen percent of twelfth graders in the. US had reported vaping in the last thirty days and in two thousand eighteen it was twenty seven percent so going from thirteen to twenty seven percent in two years is rather stunning. I mean that's that's I think that's part of what made apple do. This is that vaping is this phenomenon phenomenon right. It is who knows where it's going whereas the comparison to alcohol. Everybody knows what alcohol is and. I'm betting that the numbers. There's never been a two year period. Where the number of twelfth graders who consumed alcohol in the last thirty years says doubled or halved? It fluctuates marijuana's obviously getting more more popular as it becomes legal more places across the country and therefore easier to obtain and our society as more of a hands off approach to decriminalization station if not outright legalization Cetera of course that's going up but not doubling in two years at alcohol is rather steady in a known right whereas vaping is this phenomenon and I feel like the phenomenal nature of it is partly what drove apple to say. Let's just wash sure hands it for now. At least until the settles down but I get I get the complaints I do. I get the argument that you know. We're all grown ass adults else and we should be able to make our own decisions about stuff that's perfectly legal. Nobody's argument is illegal and that therefore whose apple to say that none of us should be able to use these APPs and stuff like that. I totally get it totally. Get why this lots of unhealthy stuff. No better like the news the news you know this is like bad snacks. And I don't know it's weird to me. Yeah I mean the bull. VAPING policy is larger. But it's it's interesting where a company feels the need to step in something that isn't isn't illegal and the other thing that I think is really. I'm very sensitive to it and hope that apple if they start walking this back to make some specific exemptions. I really hope I hope that that the hardware control angle where you're people use these apps like the ones from packs who is apparently top manufacturer. You can use the APP to actually controlled control the temperature and whatever else like verify verify the pods or whatever you put in the thing. I don't know but what you can verify that. It's a legit pod containing legit vaping source material and apparently a lot of the problems. Health problems people have is with black market canisters or anyway. There's no way for the company like that to to work around the lack of an APP because like if you take away all of the Porno apps you can just go to safari and get all of your pornography there. You know you can ban if you're if you just want to know read reviews of vaping canisters you can just read them On the website on your phone lack of an APP doesn't keep you from doing it whereas if you wanNA control your your little vaping device it has to be through the APP up and so I feel like that makes a difference in the H K. Maps live story from a few weeks ago. Again tying multiple threads together here at the end of the show apple in China China one of the reasons I know I've talked to people that apple off the record about it and they definitely you know one of the considerations that they took on this. Was that anybody with with an iphone in Hong Kong could access their website. And you can use the little feature book market as an APP on your home screen. The experience of doing that is almost almost almost if not completely indistinguishable from the H K maps APP. That was in the APP store because they h creating maps APP was really just a very thin wrapper around the website and if anything they thought maybe that would have been a reason that it should have been rejected in the first place is because they actually have a longstanding rule. That if your APP is just a wrapper around a website you which it shouldn't be in the APP store. You let us website. There's no there's no substitute for burke around so bigger deal but there there is any so anyway. I hope we'll see how that plays out. I doubt about. Does it for my agenda for the show I got on my air pods a yelling at me that there are those tiny cancer for a long time. There we go matthew yglesias. Everybody can Your work at Vox Dot Com. where I believe? You're like a co-founder your anything. They went and you've been writing about podcasts called the weeds the weeds. It's not about winning now. It's about public policy wheels. There's an entire one of the things I found in the APP store in terms of like what's allowed and what's not allowed. There's an entire sub genre of games. Where if you search for we'd Baron where it's like your goal you run this iphone games? Ames a category where you are buying and selling marijuana and you know but they call it. We'd like to keep an eagle. Not Not your podcast ask. The weeds is very different than the. We'd Baroness yes. Box Dot com medically on twitter. Yeah I tell you this kindness. I wanted to say I can't let the show without saying that I. I've been following your work forever. I mean long long time I mean just. I know that we've sort of came about came up at the same time time in the early two thousands early days of blogging blogging Matt Iglesias Dot Com. I believe back in the day. I was one of my daily daily really bookmarks top top. Three or four sites of the time of the era ever since twitter. Though every time I see your twitter handle and I know your name I know that you are you. I keep looking at your twitter handle and for this is now for thirteen years and still to this day. I look at it and I think Matti Mattie I I've from what I know of Matt Iglesias I would've never thought of him as a Mattie. No it was a huge you you know. This is like one of these early questions and when I when I've watched my twitter account I twitter wasn't a big thing I didn't think it through. I should have been matthew yglesias. Yeah Yeah or just Iglesias or right because I don't have a ton of competition from spell bots name. That's that's one thing going for me. Gruber is surprisingly populates number one surname in Austria so often in a race. I think I can usually get it on a US service and of his international. I lose out instantly. So don't don't don't don't go to the Austrian Internet but Anyway Not Mattie Iglesias Matt Iglesias on on twitter also an excellent excellent twitter follow one of my favorites by far your your master both of the short form and long form and I like it so much anyway off. Have you back someday because this was a lot of fun yet. Love to do it again. All right thank you so much..

"Have you seen a new tesla. Cyber truck yes it looks it. Looks like like a rendering from old like starbucks Super Nintendo game As soon as I saw it it looked to me like a rough rough draft of a Delorean and then I found out I actually found that it is a fact made with stainless steel and that gives it some of that. Look but it has that wedge shape I will say I don't love the design of it I really don't I don't hate it as much as some people seem to but I love that it's original and looks like nothing else like I think one one of my knocks against Tesla is that. I don't think they've done anything. Truly innovative in the exterior design of cars. Like I I know it Tesla model s when I see it but for the most part they disorder look a lot like all the other sedans of the same size class. And there's certain things that they do that I think are starting to look old fashioned. I think putting chrome around the window trim of CAR I. I've never liked chrome on a car like that. There's there's a lot of stuff that they've done over the years. Just isn't that great. And then when they do something. Originally put the goal wings on their T. V.. Crossover thing it's just stupid. Nobody wants that at least this cyber truck which is the most ridiculous name to which I kind of love. I mean who uses cyber anymore except the main thing. Sorry sorry cyber trout information superhighway. The only other person I know who still uses word. Cyber is Joe Biden. Yeah yeah look at somebody who is not at all in the market for a truck. I'm excited to see something weird looking. Yeah I love it yeah I totally love it so apparently. The Demo went poorly where they were showing. How Incredibly Ah Alon is obviously a little bit of an exaggeration? There you know he's a showman but he was there sledgehammer against the the door no damage the glassy. Wanted to say it's bulletproof. And then he caught himself said almost bulletproof bulletproof has a very specific meaning literally. It means this Bobrov seems in that horseshoes and hand grenades category with the bullet goes through your window. And you don't want to be well almost didn't make yeah. Almost bulletproof has almost pregnant but then they toss like on steel marble onto the window. Again supposed to show that it won't crack and instead chattered right in the demo he had great stage presence that work through it. He's he's truly the greatest showman. Oh men they're current current leader But I also feel like he keeps promising things. That don't actually like happen. Yeah totally supposed to have a Mars colony soon. Yeah but maybe his optimism on that front. I'm not a huge e Lan musk's supporter her. But I'm glad he's there. I am glad he's there. I know some people certainly I know. There's there's people who listen to the show who are big fans of him than me. I know that there's a subset of people who think that everything. Everything that ails apple is the day should somehow by Tesla so that he can be the CEO of the joint company. You know like the way. Got Steve Jobs when they bought next and it is interesting. I bring this up because it isn't interesting car and it just came out yesterday But it fits with this description of Tim. Cook being very cautious. Che's and have sort of very different person than Steve Jobs whereas Elon. Musk is the closest thing we have to a steve jobs like character. You know and I can see why longtime Apple fans would have the view that it would be better to somehow make that merger happened like I. I don't think it's true. It's it's like. Apple is a mature company now and it benefits from having Not Withstanding everything we've been saying about Tim. Cook and trump. It is appropriate for to have a mature picture. CEO who runs a very complicated very large scale business that needs to be organized at disciplined and not promising things things that come two days late or smashing windows on stage but it was exciting. Right apple was in some ways. More was more a fun in some ways to be an apple fan when it was a little underdog company had this headstrong. CEO and was doing crazy stuff. Right like we're GONNA have blue computers. WHOA right and now? It's like you know. I think the boring thing gets overstated sometimes but it's very competent and it's very mature we know there's going to be a new phone every year right so I'm not like Holy Shit. They made a new. Don't it's obvious. Yeah my favorite example world now maybe not the best example but I know one example of that was I message where they were unveiling a message for the first time I forget what was early on the phone and apparently what happened is during the keynote. Rehearsals jobs hit upon the idea of well. Let's open source this thing and said Yeah and yeah well. We'll look into it. I don't know if we can. We can do that. And then he just said it he'd set it on stage that we were opening the whole thing. It's you know we're sending it to the standard bodies and whatever and and I know for a fact that people who worked on the message team that was the first they heard about it and they were legit and they're like we can't do that and they're thinking about the parts of the code that you you know like can't be licensed can't be literally not just legally couldn't be open source that ever patent protected things air like what are we going to do and it never happened never happened. That's not going to happen with Tim Cook Right. That is never going to happen with Tim. Cook where he's going to impetuously. Obviously decide to open source of major technology. You know forty eight hours before a keynote and not tell the team or double. Check that even possible that this is not going to happen. and they hit their deadlines right. I mean that's like the you know. He's the Logistics Guy who runs the company. It's big we don't have this like. When is there going to be a new MAC? Os So we have what they had to delay it because they needed engineers to do the phone right. One point but it was from a coverage perspective get more more entertaining and Tesla Zaveri Fun Company. It's a really weird thing. They just like totally screwed up product demonstration. which is way more entertaining than having it? Go well right so good for them. Well and and apple used to have demos fail much more regularly in the Steve Jobs here because I think they were more aggressive about him and I was just talking to Joanna Stern about it recently. I think it was Joanna when she was on and it was before her her time in the apple media crowd but there was this this demo of an iphone where the Wi fi went out on stage and jobs just didn't work jobs came back and was like asking the media. Like he's a you know why I my my people told me why it's because there's five hundred and eighty seven in hot spots in this room right now. Shut them down. If you're out there and you see someone with it. Shut it down. And it's like way off script right and it was kind of scary to see angry. Steve Jobs talking talking to wwe four or five thousand people in a room shot it down. Shut them all down. And meanwhile I'm in the press area and everybody still has keyboards open CH- approach to everybody's nobody. I don't think one person did the media close their laptop because they're all either taking notes live logging. It just didn't happen but now it's been a long time since they've had a demo Phil I think. The risk is one that they've done in. Recent years was the when they introduced the cellular Apple Watch do do you remember this one. And they had the woman out standing on a canoe in the middle of a lake with an ad like a super telephoto Lens to to get her on camera and she took a call from Jeff. Williams live during the keynote on her apple. Watch while she was in the middle of a lake but you gotta Bet she'd been out in that lake like for a month. Yeah she's she's living in the middle of the lake right. I mean you know it's very inefficient. It just seemed like in addition into the possible possibility of technology failure that there was the possibility of balance failure and she falls into the lake weather bad weather. You can't be out. There's lightning but you never know what was what was planned. F You know. Maybe there was a dozen people have different lakes throughout America scale. What about this vape up band did you see that? Oh yeah so this is right so this is I could tell become old because I didn't even know that were vape APPs No me neither. This is like again. I'm totally I always use my phone to debate. You know this is like I think that like the APP store centralized control roll like I believe what apple says mostly that like this is good is good for consumers. It's easier for everybody. But then you get into these things like I hear such conflicting stop about vaping you know from different public health stakeholders the American Lung Association seems to have one view about a lot of people people like count into another. Because it's it's as complicated calculus right like does it displace harm by getting people to not smoke traditional cigarettes or or does it get new generations of young people on. It's like a really hard problem and not like within apple's zone of expertise chiefs right right and what they do as a institution but they're deciding and it's it's weird. I totally get the argument again. I've tried to emphasize this is my take on it that I feel like it's very close call and I. It's I if you want me to always have a hundred percent black or hundred percent white. Yes or no take on every single thing I am not the pundit to read or listen to I feel like this one is like a sports instant didn't replay where it's like damn I don't know if he's in bounds or out of bounds that is close and like whichever way they come up with you even if it was against what you wanted or what you squinted into the TV and see. I just feel like you have to admit this is kind of a close call because it's a so all over the map you know that there's a reasonable source saying it's way safer than smoking and then there's other reasonable sources saying that. This is incredibly dangerous and unknown that these mysterious forty two deaths Are So mysterious that we really don't even understand why these people are dead and that's terrifying. Isn't this actually what you would you want to have. A government for companies normally don't WANNA be regulated. But in this case I would think you would want to say to Congress or the FDA or something. We like look like a lot of people are yelling at me from both sides about this and we don't care we have no financial stake in this. We legitimately just want to do the right thing and but we want someone else to tell us but what that is we have an FDA actually for a reason and they should make a decision. And it's like I get I get the argument. That one political party is a little bit more pro business and therefore little wants in. General General wants regulations eased and wants to minimize the number of them and the other side. Maybe is a little more public policy. We've focused and is a little bit more prone to more tighter regulations. I get that argument. That's what the political process is supposed to iron out. And you should you know in the long run achieve a balance because of one side goes too far. The other. The public opinion should shift in the other parts favor. That's the way it's supposed to work at but the F. d. a in particular along with the Dod National Highway Standards and stuff like that like making sure that you're legally glee ensuring that you have the highest possible chance known to man of surviving. A car accident should not be a political issue that it's like a triumph of engineering during the way that you know the accidents that people can survive today compared to decades past. And you know being able to buy meat beat and know that it's there's a very high likelihood that it's not infected with e-coli because it's inspected by federal regulators whose only interest is in certifying. Yes indeed this fruit and produce and meat is free of contaminants. Yeah that's a good thing right. Yeah yeah and I don't know I mean just this is not your say. This is just not like apples..

"Sean Dog and pony show Wednesday which the White House turned around by the end of the day in a campaign ad with the bombastic. Michael Bay Styles Score. I don't know how to describe describe it. I don't know thirty seconds spot. Maybe it's long. I felt like ten minutes watching it. But it's subtlety. Yeah and everything and it's you know it was cut together to make it look as though apple just opened a factory everything that trump had I said at the thing. That wasn't true. That apple opened a factory. Thanks to Donald Trump and it was bringing jobs back and trump policy is good for apple and Tim. Cook is a trump supporter That's I don't think I'm exaggerating. That's what the that's the message of the ad and I don't think any of those things are true and it's a terrible ad and it was entirely shot. It's not an apple owned facility. 'cause we mentioned the some company named Flex it owns the that owns the the actual factory. But it's it is an apple facility. It's a facility that exists only to make apple products and it was apple apple people who were in the video number one. That's the whole thing is illegal because it wasn't put out by the trump twenty twenty of campaign it was put out by the White House. And it is actually illegal for the White House or any other you know to put can't use camp say and the White House isn't supposed to be doing trump's reelection work but yes all they don't they don't really followed it. Used to be. It used to be a major thing. It would have been shocking. I mean just ten. Fifteen years ago in the Bush administration would have been shocking. If a White House video was transparent reelection ad for George W Bush I mean it just would have been flabbergasting and would have been a story of the day and heads would have rolled in the video would have been pulled in. And now it's just you know and spitting in the wind but it's it's really a to me very low moment. I'm an apples history. I house to say and I don't think I'm being hyperbolic when I say so and maybe I have an open mind that honestly like if I could talk to Tim Cook off the record. Obviously and just you know. Have Him pitch me on why this was worth it. And maybe you know that this is a cynical as it sounds that the numbers are so bad if apple had to pay these he's tariffs and he's fully aware of how bad this looks and nobody's nobody in the world is less happy about the way that that tour played out and I'm sure he predicted everything trump would say about it that he opened the factory and brought new jobs here that I knew everything was going to say I did it anyway and I would do it again. End Because that's how important it is to apple and our customers that we be able to make these products without paying these tariffs. Maybe I'm willing to listen to but even then that's still sat. I'm still sad about the state of affairs in the world. You know I can't I can't help it think that this is a little bit of. It isn't quite quite so magnanimous that it's a little bit more about greed. You know right right. I mean you know what what extra tax slower margins if it goes down from thirty eight percent twenty nine percent gross margins for a couple years until there's a new president would that would that be the end of the world and you don't use. I said this earlier but the one thing you always hear from from people at Apple is that the biggest challenge that they have is with talent right that you you know people who are good enough to work it apple or good enough to work at lots of places good marketable skills and in some ways. Apple's not quite as cushy and some of the other tech companies they don't pay the most for the most. Yeah whatever I I don't I don't know why but you know. I do hope you know people who work there will think about this and you know what ability do you have to speak up you know internally and think about your your values I mean this is an issue not just an apple but it at all the companies in the industry and if having some sense of ethics is a competitive advantage in securing talent that would be a very good thing for America and for the world because it's it's a really competitive marketplace right but but if people if people don't care what ends their work or put to you know doubts bad you and this was like trump trump even said at this thank you said. Oh you know you don't need to worry about tariffs because you're building it here in America we were saying before that's like the opposite. No it's the opposite here here. Here's the direct quote the nice part in is he doesn't have to worry about tariffs when you build it here you don't have to worry about tariffs and that's not at all right right. That's not how the policy works at trump has all kinds of tariffs and intermediate goods and components and for some reason. Canadian aluminum has tariffs on right now. and it's like it's it's crazy and you know you got the CEO Standing Right there with you and you know you could be like you know Mr President. The reason I don't have the tariffs is you gave us an exemption like which is great but it would have been easier. We just hadn't done this right like you know. I mean I totally get it and Tim Cook is not going to make a jerk out of the president. He's not gonNA scream in his face. It's not going to be a setup. He's not going to secretly have a cream cream pie and give them a pie in the face but he could have. I think he could have stood up and said something to that effect. I think he could have their certain things. He said that he could out of clarified. WITHOUT SAYING YOU'RE WRONG MR president here he could simply say at the way. It's actually true. You know he could mention that we have. I've been working. We have been making Mac pro since twenty thirteen. He could say we're talking Friday afternoon about something having earlier this week and I know my colleagues at hat bucks dot Com Where we're right Colleagues at the verge assist coming of ours And I'm sure other people on the Internet Put inquiries into apple's you know press team. Hey what's the deal with this And they had no response right. They wouldn't even confirm in like a passive way like yes in in fact this is the same plant that we've had since twenty and It's unhealthy I mean. It's all true so we didn't exactly need their confirmation. But you know that's a that's that's a middle ground that company running take when everyone writes the trump fact check story the next day apple could say on the record through a spokesperson rather than CEO of they. Don't want Roy put Tim cooking it. Be like yeah. That was that was wrong. No comment and I will confirm that. I myself contacted acted apple. Pr Specific in addition to having asked if I could get a media pass I actually asked afterwards Hey My expectation is that this is the same plant where the previous generation Mac pro has been made since two thousand thirteen can you and it's just a new assembly line at the same. Can you confirm that. And I got no response right. And that's I mean that's weird right. I mean look. Companies companies. Don't respond to inquiries but like your job in no way is to provide accurate information to the media about about what is happening when people ask normally if you'd come in if this had been two weeks ago and he'd been like Hey. When did you guys opened that plant in Texas or hey hey is this new campus? Is that where they're making the MAC pros they would have been like no. It's like a couple of hours away but you know we are proud to work in the United States. You you know it gives you some pitch. But that wouldn't be like. Oh I don't even know. Where do we build our buildings right? I mean they know. Apple famously does tend to issue no comment on almost anything and you know I. It's the Bloomberg will come out with a report that there's a rumor that about the twenty twenty phone and then as part of their standard standard reporting process they will call or text or whatever and see if apple will comment and Apple. Spokesperson will always declined to comment that. They don't comment on rumors and speculation. And and I have. I can't think of off the top of my head but often when I do need or want clarification from apple. It is on something sensitive you know and and there have been times over the years where I've gotten no response at all Tuke certain questions but I understand it because I'm asking about You know like the implications of security bugger or something like that. I don't know you know but you can imagine what they would rather say nothing because they don't want to say anything and be wrong long about. Maybe they don't know. How long has this plant been open in? Texas is not one of those questions this is. This is the parallel. Well between they're they're they're dancing with China and dancing with trump. Is that things that shouldn't be controversial like having having a Tibetan monk as a character in a superhero movie or just clarifying it. Yes this is the same God damn plant. That's been open since twenty thirteen. The here we are and it's controversial. It's and you you're all I you know I'm not a AH A Gadget Guy I. I don't review products so I've never like tried to ask them like you know what's what what what are you GonNa do about about your next phone. And then and then they tell you know what I've had to ask them about like tax stuff you know like any company like they've got their line. They've got their spin. And like if you you WANNA know like but deal with bubble ball you know stuff. That's in their records and I just don't happen to know how to dig it up. They just say you know like it's fine. It's company it's reporting and it's it's truly odd to go into full no comment mode not to avoid some embarrassment to the company between void an embarrassment to the president of the United States. Yes that's yes you don't you don't see companies do that normally normally any industry right. It's because they didn't do anything wrong right and it's hard again. It's I shouldn't even have to say this but it's this is the nature of trump being trump and it is not a left right. Divide is not conservative liberal. I've been writing daring fireball. Since two thousand and two so a a I went through most of the whole Bush administration and then all of the Obama administration and it just never would have come up as different politically as Bush and Obama. Were just never would have occurred to me that there'd be a moment where apple this apple stuff that I read about would involve the company. Ah Voiding comment to avoid embarrassing. The president it just now I. I couldn't have even imagined this scenario. We are shows how trump also also inserts himself into every walk of life and aggravating way..

"And everything suddenly costs ten fifteen percent more. Like you're going to be pissed. You'RE GONNA YOU'RE GONNA yell at Donald Trump That's not going to help him. So if you think about it probably like the best company to hit with these tariffs would be apple. You Say Apple has huge profit margins right so they can actually afford to just pay the tariff like they're not going to be happy about it but you know they always talk in there in earnings call. I don't know do you got on the earnings calls. No date they. There's always some section about exchange rate and that yes because this is a similar thing right so if the dollar gets weaker get stronger compared to the euro then they make less money selling sewing the phones and stuff there. They normally really don't adjust the prices year to year. They have what they think. Is the right price for a flagship phone. In in Europe. They have the right price for for a MAC book. DOC and they stick to it because I mean I don't know you know apple just doesn't do a lot of price shenanigans right now like black. Friday sales usually not stop doc so their margins go up and down and live with it right unless is a huge change So if they got the tariff like they would just pay the tariff and it would be a ton of money because they sell a ton of frigging phones You might think okay. That's a that's a trade war success success story right where I am now telling Apple. Hey look if you want to get your margins back up you need to find a way to make this stuff in America. But what what Ben Thompson Zim pointed out was that Tim Cook has been sounding really confident. Yes that he's GonNa get these waivers and you have to imagine that was in the mix for these conversations here You never know. I mean there's not the impeachment hearings But you know how how explicit was the quid pro quo. What what Kinda little message were being sold but it really seems like that? Is the game here that you know Tim Cook would really like waivers for the whole rest of the apple product line trump is inclined to give them to him. If apple can do him some things Tim Tim Cook is a very hard character to read. I would be terrified to play poker against him even if we sent table. Even if we set the table stakes at a limit that I'm comfortable with putting aside that Tim Cook going all in would be a lot more than I can go all in for. I'm just saying that if we were playing poker Hoeger I would be terrified to play with him because I don't you could get a read on him one way or the other guy has a poker face and I want to come back to that in a bit but in a way in as the opposite of Steve Jobs Steve Jobs was very easy to read and really had had a very hard time hiding his true approach. Yes Tim Cook does and he also is very careful. I would say that that is you know. By all accounts. One of the first adjectives. Anybody would apply to him. He's a very careful cautious person. He's chooses his words in public. You can almost see him thinking about them. They're very cautious and they often come across as very anodyne if if he wants them to be where. There's not much there there and again it does like you said it comes down to some of the stuff with the quid pro quo stuff where you you know and you know. Trump is literally in his defenders literally. Want to say well he never actually said the words quid pro quo and never even heard of them before. So therefore there couldn't have been a quid pro quo. Even though it's just it's just a word. He asked for a thing in exchange for another thing which is quid. Pro Quo leads the video of it. So Yeah I get that I. I don't listen to the earnings calls but I always read the transcripts afterwards. That's my thing is I the Go-to slow from me. So I just wait and the people who bang out the transcripts Jason Snell. They have them out so fast there. I feel like I haven't haven't even lost anything even if something really important happened in it. I'm only an hour but you read it. You read his answer and it didn't. It didn't seem like like a like the most famous example people keep bringing it up but there's the famous example of protection racket mob comes into your flower shop and so there's a real nice flower shop. You got here you know. Be a shame if something happened to it you know maybe you WanNa you WANNA protect it. They didn't stay out right Boston. Estimate say we got a recording of it. And you're like yeah. I just like going into shops and telling them how nice they are. And I really would thing. It's a shame if something happened to it right but that's a threat to cook. He doesn't talk like that so like cooks. Confidence is easy to overlook. But you really just look at it and it has been pointed out. He really did seem to be saying yeah. Don't worry about that. I think we're going to be okay on these waivers and it seems like they delivered therein. It's you know it's it's it's it's part of a bigger problem. I think for apple going going forward. Given how invested they are in manufacturing in China It leaves them vulnerable to this kind of stuff from trump But also the the whole Chinese relationship is going downhill for reasons that are that are bigger than trump right. There's this constant instant Now a concern about this this Chinese company while way that makes sense. I mean they make phones but they also make this networking infrastructure Allotted it the Democrats running for President or not you know enthusiastic free traders And then of course the Chinese themselves have been you know make trouble with that. Was it that. The Taiwanese flag This Hong Kong APP. You know all the tech companies deal with this in one way or or another but you know. FACEBOOK doesn't really operate nope. China and apple really operates in China like both on the sales and the production side And you know I mean Cook is not i. Guess he's not sweating this tariffs but he's taking a lot of crap from people over it. I think rightly so and you you have to wonder How the public thinking about this for the for the longer term because like trump may ask? I don't think you know. US China tensions are going to and the the Chinese government. And you know this is like way outside my area. But they don't seem to be getting any nicer no they do. Not right there was also also. It's it's a side issue and may be coincidental. But did you see this a couple of months ago. There was a google lead team of researchers shirts issued a report on a vulnerability in iphones and the long story short. They didn't name the country but it it came out afterwards that it was the Chinese government was using it to using this exploit to target people with in this Uber Situation In China where this is a group of people who millions of people and they've got China is putting them into concentration camps. I mean that's no. Oh exaggeration it. It's really just awful. The New York Times has done a bunch of reporting on it. Recently about the conditions in these camps and apple issued a press response to this Google story which was to me tone deaf because it really didn't express yes any sympathy to the you-your people whom it was used against it was sort of. It didn't happen in the US. It was only the Uber's amalgam paraphrasing here. Just was only these Uber's in China who were actually affected by and we fixed it and Google conveniently didn't mention engine netted affected android phones to android funds are more popular in China than the iphone or something. Yeah I mean it was it was a good slap back Google. Yeah like narrowly but but also apple is the company. That's trying to sell. Listen Privacy. Here's the I mean. That's that's like their pitch and it's AH reasonable pitch but it means that you know showing them flaws in it you know I it. It means a lot and also as you say right I mean so. This is the weaker population religion. It's like ten million people there Muslims. They speak a Turkic language. Instead of a Chinese language and I mean if you if you read this stuff in the times and elsewhere. It's totally appalling. I mean they're trying to completely stamp out the this culture this society and yeah I mean it's not in the United States But I don't know how much apple or anyone outside of China could actually actually do about it but like any decent person I think but don't want to be involved in any way and this kind of crackdown if there's just if there's anything at all you can do and so my my my point on this issue with the Uber thing in the security vulnerability in this sort of callous or not. Maybe not callous but just unsympathetic public response is that. If you're looking for signs that apple is going out of its way not to even potentially essentially anger Chinese government officials. You could now. Maybe it just didn't occur to them. And maybe they were really just pissed about the way that it looked looked like this exploit was only against iphones not android and it happened to be Google research team that issued the report and I think that there is even I forget what the issue was the news of the day but Google even had some bad some bad news that week about something and so isn't it convenient that they issued this report on. IOS security don't mention android. Did it at a time that was seemingly convenient for Google in the tech news cycle not mentioning and putting in a very sympathetic stance on Uber's you know it. Maybe it just didn't occur to them but maybe it did and I thought well why. Why piss off China? You know that seems like something that's going to Piss them off. It's it's besides the beside the point we wanna make again. Wouldn't have helped wouldn't have gotten one person out of a concentration camp wouldn't have softened the Chinese the government's truly cruel stance towards this entire community of ten million people but it still would have been I think the right thing to do in your statement on this nice to apologize to the people who are truly going through something bad. Yeah I mean I I also found this this flag thing kind of alarming right. So this is they. They took the Taiwanese flag emoji. Out of the Iowa's localization in Hong Kong which is hold that. It's hard to come back. Come back to this flagging after I take a break here and thank our sponsor because that's a good point. I WanNa keep going on this but that's a good point that I'll remember. I WanNa thank our sponsor my good friends Hulo Pillow H. U. L. and then they spell pillow normally. Have you ever tried to buckwheat pillar. It is totally different experience.

"Of the weeds on the box media podcast network. I'm Matthew yglesias, Sarah, cliff der, lend a great white paper for you later, but I on talk about taxes Donald Trump's taxes, his sister's taxes, we had bills or prizes. This week the New York Times one appeal it surprise for an investigation. They did they want an explanatory Pulitzer rather than investigatory peel, it's there, but I feel it was an investigation. I mean, they submitted as an investigation. So we in the New York Times during agreement on this surprising. Aired avoid committee. They could have gone with the villain project. We submitted. But if. Pulitzer judge for twenty twenty and feel like asking of dot com. Reporters how they feel explanatory reporting works. I think all of us are available. But anyway, that being said, yes, they they got old tax returns from Donald Trump, which of course, is a subject of political controversy, but from his father, Fred Trump, and they were able to use these documents along with other business records to paint a really fascinating portrait of some of the Trump family financial shenanigans over the years. There's a lot to this. There was just like a lot going on. But I would say the single most striking thing that they found is that in addition to what I would call normal estate planning devices that were used to transfer wealth from Fred Trump to his children without paying state tax on it. They did something that smacks of illegality. We can't know. For sure until you have the case. But it it's the kind of thing that if this were legal everybody would be doing it all the time, and there would be no estate tax collection. And this is Fred Trump owned buildings mostly in Brooklyn, and queens, and he then set up a company called national build a county all county building supply Trump's kids owned all county building supply all that all county building supply did was sell building supplies to Fred Trump's buildings, and then Fred Trump's buildings would pay an above market rate price for those buildings supplies so in effect. Fred Trump was transferring money to his kids, but was not paying gift tax on it because it was being disguised as a business transaction now again, as they say like to bring a criminal case, you have to bring a criminal case, you'd have to have trial baba baba but land there statute of limitations issue.

We talk about Alexandra causing Cortez were accused of being obsessed with her except that there are there articles in mainstream media today calling for her to run for president. She's not even eligible for the presidency. If we thirty five to be president of the United States, Alexandra Okaz Cortez who does not know things is twenty nine years old and she's being. Touted as the new hot thing in congress because she's good at social media, which she eminently is Matthew mcglesias who is a dummy. Matthew yglesias, you Ralph Wiggham political commentary over at vox dot com. He has an article today called it's ridiculous that it's unconstitutional for Alexandra Okaz you Cortez to run for president. He says Alexander Okaz has the biggest star in the Democratic Party and she's been ever since. She unseated Representative Joe Crowley in a surprise primary upset in may that her win didn't in the final analysis launch a wave of leftist primary victories only goes to show. What the nomination she personally is. I mean, I don't wish to review the history here for all that long. But Representative Joe Crowley was Representative from a majority minority district, and she won seventeen thousand votes in the primary so like five people showed up and of those five people three three voted for Alexandro causing court has this makes her the rising star in any case. Matthew yglesias says it is very bad that we prevent people who are not who are who are not thirty five from running for president. He makes the case that she should run for president. And then she should dare the supreme court to make her ineligible. He says one good sign that ails. You should run for president is that she has a nickname AO AOC. It's so does Dwayne the rock Johnson. So to share what you have a nickname. And now you should run for president, El Chapo has nickname. Should he run for president? I mean, maybe we should change the constitution. So you don't need American citizens to run for president, and they can be in jail. Maybe Matthew yglesias man, that guy was dropped on his head is a baby many times he fell off the stupid tree and hit every branch on the way down my House Democratic staffer told me the other day that ACO was a good example of something. And you exactly who she meant despite the air because there aren't any other members of congress who have widely recognized nicknames. You would just drop into casual conversation is having a nickname assign you'd exercise good judgment in the Oval Office. Absolutely not. But it's proof positive. She's an honest to goodness political superstar, and it's clear. That's what many Democrats are looking for in twenty twenty does not so long ago. Arnold schwarzenegger. Kind of trumpet figure in California politics had he run for president in two thousand twelve he probably would have lost badly in the primaries on the grounds of not being right? Wing enough. But it's at least conceivable he would have won. And you'd have been a tough opponent for Barack Obama to beat for the best possible reasons, his politics are considerably saner and more humane than the average Republican, but he didn't run we never got a glimpse of what a run to.

A why shouldn't Alexandria ocasio Cortez run for president? I mean, she can't the constitution says she can't because you've got to be thirty five, but the whole purpose of an article over at vox by one Matthew Iglesias suggests that that's ridiculous. Why shouldn't someone as young as Alexandria, Casio Cortez run for president and? I'm willing to have that conversation. I mean, do we still need to have a prohibition on someone younger than thirty five running for president? What's the point? Why why should we end for that matter? Why should we have an age limit on the Senate and the congress thirty and twenty five respectively? Why? I I'd love to hear your reaction to this. I'm trying hard to remove Alexandria. Oh, Cossio Cortez. AO is the kids caller. I'm trying to remove her from the mix here because part of me really wants her to run. It'd be fantastic. But it and it's hard. It's hard to remove her from it. But but, but it's let's have the conversation based on the principles and values not the individual involved. See that would be a leftist thing to do.

And now, he's realized oh the constitution is wrong been wrong for two hundred thirty some odd years. Let's get rid of that and let Alexandro Cossio Cortez run. Okay. What would be the downside to that? Why do we still need the thirty five year old prohibition? And while we're at it while we're making modifications to how this country runs based on age. Limitations. Are there any other limitations that you'd like to see removed or modified, for instance, I frankly, I'd be willing to give up the idea that you have to be thirty five year old to run for president? If we could trade. We go to a good convention. You barter these things out. Right. That's what they did. At the US constitute the constitutional convention begging seventeen eighty seven or eighty nine. They they traded things they negotiated. They bartered. Right. So I'll tell you this.

You can did no age limit. All right. If you'll give me a new provision that says you can't vote for president unless you're thirty five. All right.

She's got a nickname. So she should run for president. And I kid you not as she lists out. The reasons why. Alexandra Cortez should be president despite her age. That's the second point. He makes you'd think there'd be a hierarchy of arguments on behalf of a candidate. Right. Number two. The second most important argument. Matthew yglesias makes is that she has a nickname. By the way, the first argument he makes young is better than old. Yeah. I thought that too at one time. Until I got old. This is a remarkable guy, by the way this. This is the critical paragraph that really should drive our conversation here today. And that is this. Dope. Oh, where did it go? This is the most important paragraph. The constitutional prohibition on people under the age of thirty five serving as president is just one of these weird lacuna that was handed down to us from the eighteenth century. But the nobody would seriously propose creating today if not for status quo basis. Realistically, most people that young would simply have a hard time winning election. But if you can pull it off you should be allowed, and I kinda think she should run for president. So this is just an old lacuna handed down from the eighteenth century. That makes no difference to us today, and we would never even propose the you have to be thirty five to be president if Alexander Hamilton and James, Madison, and the founders hadn't just put this together when they handed it down to us. He may be right about that. I suppose. By the way, while you're analyzing these ancient hundred year old or two hundred year old Likud that we just sort of accept as as a given without actually analyzing the logic behind and whether it's good for our country and make sense. Could you please analyze birthright citizenship? Could you? When you hold it up to the mirror of logic. Birthright citizenship, really doesn't make much sense. Why should somebody automatically be a citizen just because they happen to enjoy the accident of being born on our soil. Even if their parents aren't citizens. I've been waiting for the logical reason to argument behind birthright citizenship and if you start to quote the fourteenth amendment. I'm gonna have to go nuts on you. Does setting aside the constitutionality of it. Because it's obviously constitutional that you must be thirty five to run for president. And therefore if you want to argue that it's in the constitution and fourteenth amenity adversaries. Okay, fine, since we're setting aside the constitution for a moment. Let's see the logic of it. Why should we have birthright citizenship? Have that? Well, how is that good for the country? How is that in our interest? How does it make logical sense? That a a woman. Who is in this caravan happens to cross the border give birth one foot across our border and suddenly that child is a citizen, but if she had given birth a foot to the other side of the border, it wouldn't be an American citizen. What's the logic reasoned argument behind that Nibizi? But then we'll take those arguments. They take these important ones. Like, Alexandra Cossio Cortez should totally run for president because he has a really cool nickname. You know? All right. So let's have this game. Let's let's let's play this out any other changes you'd like to make at seriously. Why do we have this age limit? How about John Arlington? Virginia listening to the aforementioned, John you're on the Mark Levin show. Yeah. I I believe she should absolutely run for president. Because I know when she ran she'll have to be transparent and disclose how socialist and a communist that. She is right now the media doesn't touch her ethanol doesn't touch her. The left is now onto toucher. They want a proper up to be a savior of a some form of a younger generation. But I think the more vocal and the more large platform, she receives I believe it truly will open the eyes of most people to see how insane and crazy rhetoric is when it comes to understanding the most basic principles all they Konami as well as how to run a government. If she runs it actually is a better thing. And I understand, you know, we live in a capitalistic economy. So you don't have to be a certain age to be a billionaire or a millionaire and as much as I do want to advocate for a certain age to be president at the same time. You know, having her of all the people having a run for presidency. It will truly show how insane of a choice that she is. But Democratic Party. And I I did have one thing just to just to put in there is that, you know, my mom, what am I issues? I have with the the right is that as much as I didn't support Trump. I didn't vote for him. But I believe in Trump more than most people would I'm not black. I'm not white. But what I wanted to just have your opinion is that why so hard for people to start a movement when they are looking at Trump, and they wanna believe in Trump, but they don't have a platform and okay? Well, John, I'm I'm not sure I get the crux of your question because we all have platforms these days. Thank you for the call. If you want to support Trump, you've got a platform, you can create one yourself we through the magic of social media and the internet. That's what I did years ago ten years ago. It was that I wanted to get my voice out there. And I just started creating a podcast live internet radio show. It's amazing. How low the barrier of entry is. So you wanna platform you got one just take advice. Vantage of it. But but you make a good point about Alexandra a cousin critism house. She should run for president. I wanna believe you're right. I would love to see the the presidential debate and the choice in twenty twenty come down to a capitalism vs socialism. Whether it's in the guys evaluate Senator Qazi Cortez or Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders, who by the way are now claiming they're not socialists. Right. I don't know if you caught that or not. But there in Maryland, my home state. That's what Ben jealous who was a socialist and promoted Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton in their primary. He ran for governor. He immediately get once you got the nomination. So well, I'm I'm a capitalist. I'm not a socialist. I would love for the debate to come down to that. And I would think that the multi-billionaire real estate developer free market capitalist. He'd be able to make the arguments better than anyone against a socialist about which is better. And I and I took to quote a line from the great musical seventeen. Seventy six people will always protect and fight for the possibility of becoming rich rather than facing the reality of being poor and Alexandra Cossio Cortez, and the socialists, they they they are constantly beating the drum that we are all part of the lower class, and we must steal from the rich. So that we can have some sort of the basic suck. And carve out a miserable little life where we're all. Equal. You know, like Lennon said. And ultimately, I think especially Americans will always reject that idea. So that we can hold out the hope that we can be done Trump's someday. Or Jeff Bezos someday. I honestly, I'd even take some Bernie Sanders money. He's doing pretty well from self. I'd like to think that's how the debate goes, sadly, however, sometimes I think especially in America. The socialist message of all free things all the time is very enticing unless you have a very good person to combat it. I think Trump could do that. But but fundamentally. Are you okay? With the age limitation of thirty five years old, whether it's L gender Cortez or anybody else. Do we need to keep that age limit? Or is it there for good reason? Do you like the fact that you have to be thirty five before you run for president? And if so why? Like, I said I'd be fine with a thirty five year old running for president as long as we change the voting age to thirty five. I I'm much more concerned about that. If you're twenty five and you wanna run for president go for it. My bigger issue is people who are voting who don't know what the hell they're doing eight seven seven three eight one three eight one one. Let's have this conversation to have some fun. I'm Larry O'Connor. It's the Mark Levin show. Marklevinshow on WCBS them. Would you like to feel better be happier? More carefree too much to do in too little time. Look around your home. Look around your office, notice all the things you don't want or need or use..

"The great one, Mark Levin. Matthew yglesias gives us the inspiration for this conversation. He writes, it vox that it's ridiculous that it's unconstitutional for the genius. Who walks amongst us. Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. That she can't run for president because he's not yet. And he says this is just an archaic LA Kuna handed down from the eighteenth century. It would never even be considered today. If we were redrafting the constitution. So why should we do it? He also, by the way. Makes the case that one of the reasons why she should really run for president is that she has a nickname. So that tells you how deep they thought this through. But, but you know, what I think it's a fair question. Should we still have thirty five? Why? Then why we're while? We're working on the. The constitution making some changes now and a guy there are a lot of things about the constitution. I changed God knows the the namesake of this radio program. The great Mark Levin, would certainly he wants to have an article five constitution. So we can make some changes because things have gone a bit astray while we're at it. Well, look at the thirty five year old thing. What do you say? How about Doug Indianapolis, Doug? You are on the Mark Levin show. Yeah. Oh, like, I was telling call screener? Thirty five is a little bit young. I think they'll raise it to fifty. You want to go the other direction, really? I really didn't mature enough mentally. Are you there? Yeah. I am Doug. We're listening. Oh, I didn't really mental mentally mature enough until at least fifty maybe even fifty five. In good, health and. You know, you can still run the country doing that. Sure. Well, right. Doug wants to says, you're right medical as he is. Let's let's relook at that thirty five year old age limit, Doug. Thank you for the call. But let's move it back to fifty not exactly where Iglesias wanted to go. You know, there's a fair argument for that. You know, by the way, of course, as you can well imagine, of course, the founders did talk about this. There's plenty of notes about it. And and Madison wrote about the age limitations in federal was sixty two as a matter of fact. Couple of reasons why they had the age limits that they had first of all they put the first limited twenty-five on congress. Because many of the people who are making the arguments at the time said, including James Wilson futures creatures is by the way, there's no age limit on supreme court Justice. Isn't that funny on the supreme court? There's no age limit. And that's a job for life. But there isn't as limited on congress Senate and presidency and James Wilson..
