He also denied by the way a second meeting that capture nick was going to have with the team, but But it was canceled, which came in twenty eighteen, he denied that second meeting with capper nick was canceled because of the teams uncertainty about whether or not capper nick was planning on kneeling during the anthem or not He said that didn't have anything to do with it, but he also revealed yesterday that he got a phone call from a team asking about capper nick and he said that that hadn't happened. Now first of you're asking why Pete Carroll getting calls about Kapernick Well I. Guess Carol was the last guy in the seahawks were the last team to legitimately be interested in capper Nick I, thought the Ravens were one of those teams, but apparently it was Pete Carroll and Seattle Sue Carol said that he got a call from another team. He wouldn't disclose whom the call was from, but did say that it left him with the impression that at least one team is currently interested in signing capper Nick. Now I had Andrew, Brandt m, QB and former league executive with the packers on the show the other day on the radio show the other day, and he really felt that capture nick was not going to get signed that you know. The kneeling was not going to be an issue in the teams. We're GONNA. Come around in support. You know protests during the national anthem support the ability for you know people like Colin. Kaepernick players like Cabernet to bring attention to. Issues worthy issues like racial injustice kneeling during the anthem, but he didn't think capper nick was going to get signed while Pete Carroll's telling you yesterday that there's at least one team that sniffing around. Teams had a chance to do it last year. November regardless of whether or not. You think the league. You know sort of set this up and didn't make it. You know exactly. Perfect for capture nick in terms of timing, and and time to prepare, and then capture next, definitely turned into turned it into a bit of a sham by changing the venue a few minutes before it was supposed to start making teams travel sixty minutes to see a workout at you. Know another field not at the Falcons Facility No one ended up signing a men, but I was thinking about the teams. That might be interested now. You know it's two. Two things that I thought about one is an owner that's ready to make the move, and there are several owners that wouldn't have made the move. Some of those owners have been big time. Trump's supporters, and other owners justed they don't think it's good business so that's a consideration and the offensive style of football is another consideration and I came up with a shortlist of I think eight teams that I thought maybe Pete Carroll was referring to. I thought of Andy Reid and everybody that's coached for Andy Reid I all right, so the chiefs and the chiefs really don't have a legitimate backup to mahomes. It's Chad henny right now. at least based on the depth chart that I'm looking at at our lads, so Andy Reid who's always taking a chance, you know. He was the one that signed Michael Vick after all of his issues, which are not comparable, met saying that they're apples to apples. But Andy Reed's a guy that first of all you know has a system and makes the best out of the talent that he has works the system around the town that he has that nick could come in and back up Patrick. Mahomes I thought of Matt Nagy in Chicago where they did sign Nick Foles, and they do have Mitch Trubisky, but again you're talking about a head. Coach that. Could potentially fit in a guy like Colin. Kaepernick is a backup or certainly give him a chance to compete for a backup position. And then I also thought of Doug Peterson in Philadelphia, you know Doug Peterson sitting there with with Carson Wentz, they drafted. jalen hurts. They have nate Sud fell, but those were the first. You know teams that I thought of because they're the ones. Ones that are fearless. When it comes to that kind of thing, they're not gonNA. Worry about it not to mention that ownership in those three areas would be. I think very supportive of it as well certainly the hunts and in Philadelphia with Jeffrey Lurie I also thought about Arezzo with cliff Kingsbury They've got Brett Hundley is the backup right now to cuyler Moore. Also considered a team alike the The Tennessee Titans in the titans with with Ryan Tannehill in the the the move they made last year. They don't have a backup Mariota's gone They've got a situation in Tennessee where they don't necessarily have an obvious backup quarterback to Tannahill. What a situation that would be potentially for capper nick to go in and compete for a backup spot and Tannahill had a great finish to the season, and they have resigned him but I thought of Tennessee as a possible landing spot for capture, nick as well the Ravens. Yes, There was some interest there for a while. They have our g three backing up a Lamar Jackson and then I also thought of Buffalo Buffalo right now with that situation with Josh Allen and they don't have a guy that plays like Josh. Allen does backing up Matt Barkley, is there they? They drafted Jake from Jake froms had his own issues here the last few weeks. Those were the teams. I thought of I forget how many I just ripped off. Off I, think it was like eight. Buffalo Baltimore Tennessee? Kansas City Philadelphia Chicago Arizona the that seven teams those are the teams that I thought of I may be missing one or two, but it'll be. It'll be interesting to see if Kapernick gets signed here in this off season before training camp a obviously, he's GonNa. Have to work out and he's going to show that these going to need to show that he's in shape. He's also hungry for it. You know you're not GonNa do it just for for grins and giggles here if you do it, you're going to do it with the intent of giving him a legitimate shot to compete for a spot on your roster. And he's got a show that he wants it. He's hungry. We didn't really see that last. November from Kapernick. All right. That's it for today. Have a great weekend back on Monday..

"You know the the the favorites family wins at any job. I'll tell you what that's a hell of a door to open up. You know on a team that more likely than not is going to contend for anything this year because if kyle. Allen were to start the opener. And they beat the eagles, and he throws for three twenty and three touchdowns, no picks in runs. The offense flawlessly that that image is never going to be lost from everybody's mind even if they come back in week, two against the cardinals. Is it? I forget I think it's the cardinals week to I forget. It's cardinals Cleveland. In Baltimore thing, and Haskins is then ready to start a that's I would be very very surprised if kyle. Allen started game early in this season and less. There's an injury. I think that that that Rivera is savvy enough. And maybe he doesn't know this market well enough, but he will find out very quickly that he looked if kyle and started a game, and they won the opener and he was great. You know in most situations that would be like. Wow, they are. They've got a great. Great situation a quarterback right now but it would really be an incredible story line from that point forward first of all, there would be people you know saying well. We got your starter. This guy's got. He's got to continue to start until he proves that he shouldn't be the starter. And if they went to Haskins in week two, because at that point, he's ready or week three. Because at that point, he's ready. a really strong performance or two from Kyle Allen would be hard to shake from everybody's mind. I I agree with everything he said didn't like I said I agree. The gods are like that task is but I would say this I think for Rivera. Against they didn't draft joint Haskins. There are skeptics remaining with. Whatever Haskins will be his upside, and so on and ultimately one thing, there's been discussed the life almost as my culture. has been just competition Rivera del Rio and others, and obviously a little bit of coachspeak of course, my competition competition, but I do think for a new coach if if. You know when people were clamoring for Haskins to start last. Right off the bat last year. That would have been kinda crazy. He definitely was not the best quarterback in training camp He was definitely behind the other guys and I think I've found goes out and training camp and does a better job significantly better now 'cause borderline like not just I've the beholder, but like it's clearly he's a better guy. I just think the message. She's going to send to the rest of the team where he's telling them. Hey, there's there's no favorites here you. You guys all battling for jobs and so on, I don't know if that's the message. He wants to spend right off the bat when he's trying to get these guys to buy in to what he's selling grain of the quarterback position I totally get that and again I I would imagine asking is the starter, but I didn't think if pilot home shows up to get. He has significant. He has certain advantages with Wayne has other advantages. Let's note that he's actually he's actually played with maclaurin and Sam's and Harmon. Tommy Allen has really don't see got. You know so so he has some advantages on that for us, but I mean. I just think Allen looks better in camp by decent amount. I do wonder if it will be hard to say well. We're GONNA have to pretend that didn't happen and start this guy. Even though I'm telling everybody else. Gupta job yeah. I think you know last year. Is is a bit different. You know last year. They actually thought they had a chance. You know early in the year and so keenum was further along and Colt. McCoy wasn't ready anyway, and you know, and he was a rookie, and it was not crazy to him. I wanted him to play from the jump because I didn't think they could contend for anything. And I wanted to see him certainly at Owen Three, Oh and four. I wanted to see him, and at that point I think we should have seen him earlier. This year is different in that. Yes, you're right, you're. You're coaching staff and I. Remember Mike. Shanahan telling me this in so definitive. You know passionate terms. The Locker Room knows you can't fool the locker room and once you try to do that. You can lose the team. It's a high risk thing when you've got at quarterback like he had a guy. That's clearly much better than the other guy and everybody knows it and yet. You're playing the guy that doesn't give you the best chance to win, but this is again. a guy that I think. Some of his teammates have confidence in after seeing late last year and And also will recognize the disadvantage. He has been in in an off season where he didn't have time to adapt to a new coaching staff in a new offense. ETC, it's it be a hell of a door to open to say you know what Duan's coming along great. He looks awesome. Kyle's been in this system for a full year. He and Scott really know it, and because of the off season Kyle's going to be able to get us into the offense and get the plays called and all that stuff, so kyle is GonNa, start the opener maybe week do. Until Duan's, you know up to speed, and then it's Dwayne job, and then all the sudden Kyle Allen goes out and and lifts this team to a two and start with great quarterback play. That's that's toothpaste. You're not putting back into the toothpaste holder..

"Let's bring in Ben Standing from the athletic. Who joins us here on the PODCAST. We'll talk some Redskins, and maybe we'll get to another topic or four depending on how much time we spend on the Redskins, but you know it was one of those weeks. Ben Where you know the Redskins have been doing this here during the off season I. Don't know if this would have been the plan. had we not had the pandemic, but we've had. A series of zoom conference calls with reporters. MRS I. Don't know how many RU- Rivera's done at this point this. This is at least the second one he's done, so we heard from Rivera the other day. We heard from haskins yesterday. We heard from Ryan Kerrigan and Terry maclaurin so four guys this week. what were the biggest takeaways I think you and I spent some time talking about job about Jack del Rio's conference call from like a week and a half ago, was there any big news here in the last two days in your view? well, you know, and obviously these things are lou up. If we had ot as I, think yesterday, Thursday would have been the actual last day, not as based on the counter from last year, so every day you know, we would have gotten Rivera presumably along with some player, so you know sort of making up for for for for that I don't know look obviously a lot of the conversations particularly with the river and Haskins involved everything that's going on in the country right now. you know with with surrounding George Fluid and the other conversations race and diversity from the football perspective what we got into you know. I The one question that I ask them not ask bring this up because I asked happen to be in football i. was like look. Here's the reality. If you guys had all the time, we would have by now seen. WHO's lining up or see Rob Terry Maclaurin? Where which how are you positioning your linebacker? And who's in which you know? WHO's wearing the rotation? Are you getting chased young? Might Sweat and Ryan Kerrigan on the field together, and if not, who's with the first unit all that stuff? So I said so. My question is basically. You can't see this either. So what's the biggest challenge? The typically and I mentioned left tackle in my in my question is he went right there and said yeah, you hit the nail on the head left tackled, obviously going to be the big one force, and no doubt I. Mean I literally. Normally we. We have these discussions. About who do you think is going to be starting? This is the starting that like you can kind of have some. UH, some guests, even if you're wrong I wouldn't even begin to have a clue who would start a left tackle right now. Because the three candidates are none of them, have any resume that suggest. That they that they're ready to go. He went down the list he he went in right to left. Guard the battle between the West is Martin and and Schweitzer. He specifically mentioned. Ryan Anderson I because I I also mentioned linebackers specific dimensions what to do with Ryan Anderson. Not You know all the group at him specifically where to use him and you know. He just kind of kicked down the list from there including quarterback where he also reminded us. There is a battle. Talking. I. Want you to hold off on that. I'm saving that one here for a more significant conversation but I did think that it was interesting. This is the second time with that Ryan. Anderson has been discussed by the head coach where he said something to the effect of. We've got to figure out how to use them you I. Remember wrote maybe a month ago. Maybe it was longer than that, and it was sort of a surprise, cut column or section of a segment of your column, and you put Ryan Anderson Anderson there, and I remember thinking no way Ryan. Anderson was the most improved player on that defense last year from from my standpoint, but that doesn't. Mean that the new coaching staff feels the same way. Do you think when he says that Ryan? Anderson is a guy that we've gotta find a home for. Did that make you believe that? Maybe you were on to something a month month and a half ago as it relates to Ryan Anderson. For full disclosure I don't remember what I what I did or said yesterday run the month. Remember that you did I'm pretty sure it. You I think you said in in a in a column. It was one of those you know subheadings subheading. Sir Cuts and you put Ryan Anderson down. Well. It doesn't surprise me if I did that because I have wondered if a degree in that. If you look at the bigger picture, I know I'm actually gonNA. Write on this for for Monday for authentic so I don't WanNa step on it too much, but basically. I mean. How does he fit in with this whole situation right now? Obviously, he had some pretty good moments last year They're switching to a new defense I think you could make an argument. He's better served as a full three linebacker. Then he was sort of three four edge guy. At the same time you know, there's really no room for them on the defensive lines and the linebacker situation you know. They've got a lot of guys. They don't have a lot about how guys ensure. They're curious about and also either.

"Climb. You want it you need it. It's what everyone's talking about the Kevin Sheehan show now. Here's Kevin Ben Standing from the athletic will join us here shortly I'm glad golf is back Tom Lehman yesterday. Sixty one years old shot sixty five at colonial country club in Fort Worth I player that old to shoot sixty five or better in forty years on the PGA tour I know fans I didn't think it was much of an issue watching it with golf anyway. glad to see real competition in the sport that I follow closely back. Back in action by the way the course where they're playing this tournament, just a few blocks from Texas Christian University TCU same neighborhood. is the colonial country club with TCU had some good times down there with my oldest son. When he went to school there, he graduated two years ago. His friends were great. The parents of his friends a couple of the families lived in that neighborhood man. TCU is a great spot if you're a parent of a of a high school kid and they're starting to look at schools. TCU's become here. In the last five six seven years pretty popular for kids on the East Coast mid Atlantic beautiful campus, good school great, football program. Gary Patterson, one of the best coach is one of the best defensive mines in College Football, too Nice Nice Place WanNa. Start with this Muriel. Bowser was on our radio station ninety this morning with DOC and Al Goldie and there was A. A question first of all. Let me just say this about the mayor. She is a terrific communicator. We've had a lot of conversation over the last few months about our leaders and their communication ability DC's mayor Bowser is a very good communicator. She has been throughout this pandemic. She has been the last two weeks with all of the protests is also think that you know. Sometimes it's about. About how likable you are as a person, the perception from far in a weather, someone is likeable or not which helps in your ability to get through to a public. Even if you have people that disagree with what you're saying I think she is a great communicator I think mayor. Bowser is very likable on now with respect to the politics in decisions I'm not a D., C. Resident. Resident I consider Washington D. C. my hometown because I'm part of the DC metro area, but I live in Maryland actually a jest barely outside of the district line I'm. I'm a quarter of a mile from the DC Maryland line where I live, but mayor bowser was on with canal this morning, and she was asked by a doc Al about a stadium, being back in D. C.. And I want you to listen to the following exchange because she did reveal something that we haven't heard from the mayor in quite some time about the name. The redskins name that is here was mayor Bowser on with docking out earlier. Where are we right now? Regarding the Redskins next stadium being in DC. well, that's led we. We like to see happen we know we have the best location for the stadium and we'll continue to work on that. And is the name in obstacle a lot about the name? The redskins name I know that's come up in the past. It is on the call as an obstacle for US local league, but it's also an off the. Where the federal government who who who leases the land to? What is your stance on the name Redskins? I think as a pastime for the team to be Oh, with what offends a so many people and this is a great franchise with a great history. This beloved Washington. There it is mayor balancer this morning. on with Doc Walker now Goldie on our station team ninety saying quote. I think it's pastime for the team to deal with what offends so many people, and that this is a great franchise with a great history that's beloved in Washington, and it deserves a name that reflects the affection that we've built for the team. closed quote also the mention about it. Being Federal Land, and the federal government leases that land in it's an obstacle for perhaps the mayor and the council locally, but it's also an obstacle for the federal government. I think it's a non starter, still even in this environment with the owner. I think the owner and I think a lot of people in that organization believe that when the mayor says, it's time for the team to deal with what offends so many people I think they disagree that it offends so many people certainly the people that matter the most that being native Americans All of the polling suggests otherwise. I Want Stadium in DC I'd love it to be on the RFK site. I think it's where to be for the team to maximize you know eventually when we get fans back into stadiums, a a season ticket in base. Obviously winning is going to be very important, but to me. A stadium in the city makes the most sense but to hear that from the mayor this morning. is new news from her. She's been very supportive of the stadium in DC and she really hasn't in the past weighed in against the name. That really hasn't happened the way it did. Did this morning Most of you know my feeling on it I am open to the conversation of course I would never want any group of people to be offended by name that I'm using or supporting, but all of the polling and all of the data over a long period of time suggests that for the people that matter the most in this conversation that the name is not offensive. My suggestion or the years has always been certainly in recent years. A second non pejorative definition for the name I think that makes sense We have lots of multi For words in the dictionary a second, non pejorative non-racist definition Noun. Washington redskins the team that plays professional football in Washington. That's what the word has meant for a long period of time now for seventy five plus years..

"Today. As, nationwide protests over the death of George Floyd enter a second week. A conversation with the leader of the city where it all began. Mayor Jacob Fry of Minneapolis. Wednesday June third. Hello. This is Jacob, Prai? Mr Mayor! It's Michael Barbaro. Michael. Thanks for having me. Thank you very much for making time for us because we know. What an urgent time is in your city and we really appreciate it. You got it so just to start mayor fright. I want to go back to the moment when you learned about the death of George Floyd and I wonder if you could describe that moment from your perspective and then. Tell me whether in that moment. You could have imagined that it would lead us to where we are right now. When I first heard about the murder of George Floyd I didn't know all of the facts I received a call from our chief, saying that there was an interaction with a black man, and that black man had then been hospitalized. I didn't know yet whether he had died I didn't know the nature of the interaction, and then subsequently, of course we learn more information. I learned that the officer involved incident resulted in. George Floyd dying. I then saw the video. Which? was, horrid. To, see. Our white police officer. Press his knee into the neck of a black man who was unarmed and handcuffed. For a period of eight minutes straight. I'm there is nothing more disgusting that I have ever seen in my life. It was as clear as day to me that the normal protocols and procedures that are baked into the walls and mortar of of City Hall the tell you not to do something not to speak out not to say. Something was wrong because of legal reasons and all sorts of other issues that you just had to throw those away. And so. Around six thirty in the morning, as soon as the press was up and available, and we had at least collected the preliminary information about what happened, we held a press conference. and. My. Soul, direction was that. Let's just be honest. And since that moment. Our entire city has been reeling. Angry, sad. Every single negative emotion that you can think that's where our city has been and I've been with our city and feeling it. You! Know I asked you whether you could have imagined this response, and here's why I'm asking that. When the protests broke out the head of the Minneapolis and Leslie Redmond said this quote. What you're witnessing in Minnesota is something that's been a long time coming. I can't tell you how many governors I've sat down with how many mayors we've sat down with and we've warned them that. If You keep murdering black people, the city will burn. We have stopped the city from burning numerous times, and we are not responsible for burning now. So is the head of the CPI in your state right I mean. Were you warned and was this inevitable? The head of the N. double ACP could not be more correct. This is not just about the eight minutes of time where our officer had his knee. On George Floyd's neck. This is about the previous. Four hundred years. This is about. Hundred, years worth of intentional segregation and institutionalized racism. This is about repeated instances of officer mistreatment. Over decades. And, the only reason it's coming out more often now is that it's recorded on video. I, and so no, this is not just about the eight minutes of this one instance. This has been a longtime come in in many ways and. It's tragic and all we can hope for now is that it leads to clear change. It sounds like you could imagine. Everything that has happened happening the way you're talking right now, that's that's. But I guess what I'm getting at is. Were you ever told by a black leader in Minneapolis that if circumstances did not change? There will be a crisis. There will be something like what we have just seen I'm asking you if you were given a warning. Of that kind! I'm sure there have been numerous warnings over the past several years in decades, yes. I. Mean if you're asking, has anybody ever said that the answers? That I have heard it. Does that make the burning of the city right? No, it doesn't. Misdemeanor Tuesday's episode of of our show daily was about the history of the Minneapolis Police Department, and why it has been so difficult for mayors for police chiefs to change the culture and reprimand officers who commit acts of misconduct and specifically in your city. We focus on the power of the Police Union to set the terms, and even more specifically. The head of Your Police Union who has resisted change and pretty successfully prevented a lot of it. Has that been your experience? Yes! The elephant in the room with regard to. Police reform? Is the police union. The elephant in the room with regard to making the changes necessary to combat the institutionalized racism in have a full on culture shift is the police union the contract associated with that union and then the arbitration that ultimately is necessary. It sets up a system where. We have difficulty both disciplining end terminating officers who have done wrong and so if you WANNA see a full on culture shift, there's a couple of things it's get new officers in that embody the vision of our very forward, thinking and very procedurally justice oriented chief R., A. Dondo and get officers out who do not embody that vision. Both of those things need to happen. Do you currently have the power to do that to bring a new officers. Who Do this job differently and get rid of cops who are problematic. We have the ability to bring in new officers who do the work differently and fact chief are Dondo. Personally interviews have renew cadet that comes in to make sure they have the right mentality that procedural justice is instilled from the very beginning, and that they have a compassionate approach. We do not. Have the ability to get rid of many of these officers that we know have done wrong in the past due to issues with both the contract and the arbitration associated with the Union. You know I mean let me tell you about who are chief is chief R.. A Dondo grew up on the south side and he's the kind of beat cop like knows every person on the street and knows who their parents are I mean. That is the way the policing ultimately should be done. He even sued our Police Department for Racial Discrimination and one right, and now he is our chief, and he is a person of.
"mayor" Discussed on Two Broads Talking Politics
"Everyone. This is Kelly with to buds talking politics coming to you once again from quarantine which may lost forever. I am on today with Mayor Joe Signal. Oh who is the mayor of Roselle Park New Jersey Mayor Joe? Hey what's going on? Kelly how are Ya well? You know? It's a relative term at this point but good good. I'm great super relative. Yeah I mean this like day I guess eight or nine of like actual quarantine and I'm realizing I guess it kind of makes sense right so like you get into politics normally if somewhat social and the being a single guy like the lack of social interaction is definitely taken. It's mental strain on me but it's cool. I have awesome things like this to keep me engaged. Yeah my brother and I are both introverts and we were remarking that we've actually been more social over the past week and a half because it's easier as an introvert to do legs zoom parties than it is to do in person parties. We did our first that we did our first zoom like I guess drinks last Friday and I did it with a couple of different groups of friends but it's amazing so like I'm in Jersey. I've got some friends in Brooklyn. Got Some friends in Hoboken and Jersey City and the public transportation is terrible here. Traffic is bad like also so it was actually strangely convenient and nice and it didn't have to get dressed up and deal with the cold so look there's pluses to it right now. It's it's there upsides so i WanNa talk some about what. This whole situation looks like in in small towns and things but thought maybe just to start if you could talk a little bit about sort of who you are and a little bit about your town and what the sort of local government structure looks like there because it's so different from place to place and so it's hard without context to sort of understand the nuances of a particular location. Yeah totally so I am. You know thirty two year old mayor that kind of just like road. This blue wave after twenty sixteen election. So I I was actually living in Germany at the time when trump got elected and I kind of made the conscious decision to to move home and get involved in politics. 'cause I was just like super disgusted as to what was going on in the country. Show after to kind of get my footing. When I moved back to America I moved back to my hometown was living with my parents just to kind of figure out what the next move was got involved in local politics in and ran for mayor here along with a bunch of you know. Kinda younger folks who who? I don't think originally anticipated getting involved in politics so young. But but SORTA did it as a reactionary measure to. You know the nightmare. That was two thousand sixteen so in Roseau Park Whereabouts. Pushing fifteen thousand people which is par for the course for New Jersey. We have a lot of small municipalities. That are packed. Pretty Tight You know she all these like historic towns. That split from another town or you know we were. We came. We came down in one thousand nine hundred four breaking from another city so anyway. I'm giving too much historical context. Our form of government is called week. Mayor strong council. So I'm a ceremonial mayor is what they call it to appoint positions. I run the meetings but only vote in a tie-break lucky for mayor. Unlucky for me. It's a three three council ties. So three Republicans three Democrats as you can imagine. I have to break those ties relatively often. It's actually a former Republican town. Better part of the last thirty years. It's been Republican. So we're about forty five minutes from Manhattan Via Train Dead night if you drive a car there. It's probably only about a twenty minute. Drive so really really within spitting distance and yeah does that. Give good enough context. Yeah no I think that's a good start and we can sort of Tease out some of that. So you know. I think we hear a lot about a federal response to Kobe. Nineteen certainly those of us in states with Greek governors are hearing a lot about St responses. I live in Illinois and so have been super impressed by Jay Pritzker and I live in Chicago so I see a lot from mayor. You know what what the city responses Chicago sort of a massive response to all of this. But I think you know I haven't been hearing as much just in part because of where I live about. What happens in smaller locales and what what is the role of the city compared to the steep compared to the federal government in responding to a crisis like this in general and the specific one so? I wonder if you could just sort of talk a little bit. About what what that looks like in the coordination between levels of government. Yeah so I think not to wax poetic too much. I think probably goes without saying to a lot of listeners. You know the the mayor and the governor I think especially the mayor and a lot of places has really been pushed the forefront Because the response at the federal level has been woefully inadequate right. Like I don't need to wax poetic about how terrible trump is. I can go all day on that. But it's really it's almost a head scratcher because you take people who. I didn't even agree with George W Bush they usually take you know whether you agree with them. Politically or not they. They step up to at least try to be the brave face in spite of of disasters. And that just hasn't been the case here. So people have really looked locally for people to kind of assure them and plan for them and and kind of react So it was abundantly clear to us about two weeks ago that this was going to be a real issue That was finally hitting our shores in earnest and you know mayors Depending on the form of government here had varying degrees of power. It's kind of par for the course in New Jersey now to have what's called a borough administrator or municipal administrator and that is essentially a position in town that the American Council of abdicated a lot of the day to day responsibilities to normally they'll still listen to the mayor especially in a situation like mine where I I speak for the minority majority of the government. So you know about two weeks ago. We started making our own plans because they're just was none from the federal government and pretty slow reaction from the state government so we started making a restrictions so I started off two weeks ago about like advising against X Y and Z. The state was slow to respond so last Monday. We came up with our own restrictions on what businesses could be open when they could be open. And how you know they can serve the public and then the state finally stepped up You know I think Governor Murphy has in New Jersey stepped up in a big way a little bit late But I think the frustration has been at the local level. There's been a lot of things that we have known for the last two weeks would-be measures. That would be coming up right so school closures business closures travel bans stayed home orders and the whole thesis was to stop the spread. I think the frustration of local level is is if we knew this is coming. Why not do it earlier? Rather than later long story short I in sort of that vacuum of top down guidance. We've been sort of getting creative with the limited power. We have a in our case through our borough administrator to to to kind of clamp down on on certain activities what has the reaction been lake among your constituents you know we. It seems like everyone in my sphere is sort of taking all of this very seriously was going and self quarantine before we even had two But obviously you see a lot in the news about you know. People still flocking to beaches and things like that. What what is it been like locally? Have People Been Sort of eager to embrace these measures. Have they been reluctant? You know what? What does that look like locally? I think the biggest tragedy of all this. It's it was met with a lot of skepticism at the beginning And I think a lot of it was split down party lines which is really really difficult to come to terms with. You know three weeks ago. Four weeks ago this is a Democrat conspiracy and go away and under control and half the country or half. The voting population thought that and even the ones that knew better. You know no matter how you slice it even if you don't love the president or don't hold much faith in the president when what's coming out of the White House is don't worry don't worry don't worry you know. Even even the most staunch Democrats kind of just fall into that lull. So you know I think a lot of US locally tried to take aggressive measures against it and we're just kind of blown off because you know Democrat conspiracy theory right. I think the tone has changed. Now that people have seen atone shift. Thank God from the White House and people are starting to see you know friends and family being affected and you know what was the person that searches online. What Krona virus can do to a human being but I think part of the skepticism that was faced early on. Was You now? I mean it's hard to fight. You know it's hard to fight the counter voices from top officials that are saying that this is a conspiracy theory I can't I can't stress that enough. Have there been particular challenges. Are Things that you have noticed? That maybe aren't the issues that are sort of reaching the national attention But that have been challenges that you've needed to face in your community as mayor. You know. I'm there sort of all sorts of if you spin out far enough. All sorts of things that are being affected by this earnhardt lives are being thrown upside down but I wonder if there have been things that have been surprising to you. It's a really interesting question you know. It's it's probably not surprising or it shouldn't be surprising. But it's sobering. I don't think people realize until you're on the ground floor. How many people are living paycheck to paycheck? And how many people can't take a minor disruption in their daily life. So you know it's it's it's not a shock to say. A lot of folks are living paycheck to paycheck. But when you realize that like especially people in like the Food Service Industry Restaurant Industry like you cut them off from business for a week or two and you know a family or an individual person is already really in an extreme danger of going hungry you know going belly on their mortgage you know defaulting on payments. I think I think it's just people don't realize how razor thin much of America is budgeted at and lives. Which is you know it's sobering. I don't know exactly how to phrase this question because we're still in the middle of this but I you know I think a lot about the if the whole world is GonNa flip upside down then. Everything.

"Last thing this weekend. New Yorkers became the latest Americans to take part in this argument. We definitely need to do something about the environment. I mean we're we're killing ourselves friends plastic bags. What else next? How much toilet paper? We're going to use our toilet. That's right new. York became the force state in the nation. It's not just a scourge people from using single use plastic grocery bags but to ban them outright at supermarkets yonkers has reusable bags available at City Hall and in libraries. Most stores will sell bags. Others will have paper on hand with some counties charging five cents per paper bag whether you're city or state of tried this or not rules like this are being brought forward more and more frequently across the country. Okay we're recording so I called up someone who's been watching this carefully. Seren Nichols is with a Natural Resources Council of Maine which actually pushed a similar ban. That goes into effect just next month. We passed a bill last year through the Maine legislature that would ban distribution of plastic bags at checkout and also puts a five cent fee on paper bags and I asked her. Can I ask every devil's advocate question? I can think of and she was nice enough to play along. I don't like why are you going to make my life so inconvenient. Yes these yes. This is not the first time I've been asked this question. She basically says look. We live in a country that uses three hundred eighty billion plastic bags and wraps every year. That's three hundred eighty billion with a B. This is a profound issue so I say Cool Kane is having to pay like five or ten cents for one though. The fees don't work quite as well at reducing some of these problems that we see services cities have tried this and even though that does decrease use it often means. Recycling machines are getting messed up by three bags instead of four the equipment. That's right she says remember. You shouldn't just throw your plastic bag in the recycling bin with everything else. He got offended grocery store. That takes those master. Lots of other questions. Like what about smaller businesses. Those bigger reusable bags aren't those if they're made of plastic still just more plastic out there. I even asked her about the point. Raised by the American recyclable. Plastic bag alliance which is an industry. Group paper is bigger. It's heavier it's actually harder to transport. You're you're gonNA spend more fuel actually trucking all these paper bags with handles or not all over the place. What's so great about paper bags but see that's another another tricky one to me they. They really downplay The end of life issues with plastic So they they do. These studies based on a plastic ends up. Where it's supposed to be and not where it's not supposed to be in that. She says there are legitimate concerns. There are unintended consequences here. But she warns. Don't get it twisted. The loudest people hate these bands but most customers and retailers so far have appreciated check. I got my local grocery store said. Who's complaining the most so far? It's guys because we're not used to carrying bags around. He said women are like. Oh it's one more thing I deal with this all the time men. He says or complete wimps about this start here tomorrow. Just subscribe more and all these stories at ABC News Dot Com or the ABC News App. I'm Brad bilking tomorrow.

"On my orders the United States military has begun strikes against al-Qaeda terrorist training camps and military installations of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan. Right now there are troops in Afghanistan. That weren't born before September eleventh. Two thousand one. They went around when we started taking on al-Qaeda or the Taliban that we accused of harboring them this year. We will bring America's longest war to a responsible and he's young people were in fifth and sixth grade. When President Obama announced we were getting out. They were in high school when Isis began to arrive in Afghanistan and the Taliban started fighting them. Today we have taken a decisive step toward peace real peace in Afghanistan so this weekend those young men and women those American service members were in Afghanistan is the US signed an agreement with the Taliban the places responsibilities on that group that we once considered our mortal enemies and as we finally get ready to withdraw it's GonNa ABC's Elizabeth mcglaughlin who covers the Pentagon. She actually flew into Kabul to watch the defense secretary. Break this news to troops Elizabeth. What is this deal and even come together? What you saw on Saturday was really historic moment. Maybe something you never would have dreamed of. In the last several decades the United States sitting down with members of the Taliban and signing this agreement is Could be a very historic moment. So I wanNA thank you all for what you've done from. The bottom of my heart is as a former soldier myself. There settled pieces of this one of which and maybe the most important for the United States is going to be a reduction and the number of American forces in Afghanistan. We have now about thirteen thousand. That number will come down to eighty six hundred over the next couple of months and if the deal holds a you could see a withdrawal of all American troops in just fourteen months now. There of course several pieces of this agreement that require the Taliban uphold their own commitments. But the most important thing here Brad that you're going to see in the next ten days is the Taliban members of the Taliban and representatives of the Afghan government coming together sitting down at the table really for the first time so these groups I what is the trust level like I mean I can only imagine how are people feel about the Taliban you're saying the Afghan government has actually been involved in these talks at all. You're absolutely right. There is some distrust here. I mean the Taliban does not recognize the government of Afghanistan and they also Still have conducted attacks against the US and Afghans and maintain close ties. To al-Qaeda Afghanistan deserves a chance to enjoy the security and prosperity that comes from peace and stability. There are also going to be issues in the United States really wants the Afghan people to include women at the table civil society groups. This will only happen if Afghans joined together with one another to embrace this opportunity and I will tell you I just got back from Kabul with Defense Secretary Mark expert over the weekend. I think you saw the United States want to have a presence in Kabul for this agreement just to show their support for the Afghan government and put the spotlight back on the importance of those intra Afghan talks of right just because all of this was literally happening in Doha. Not In the country where it's going to be affected. So what are the potential snags? What is the potential future of this deal Elizabeth? Well unfortunately already seeing some issues over the weekend part of this deal involves an exchange of prisoners that the Taliban would be required to give back about a thousand prisoners that they hold meanwhile the Afghan government is supposed to give back five thousand and you heard President Ghani of Afghanistan over the weekend saying he does not want to do that. He said that was something. The United States put in the agreement but that needs to be a hammered out with the Afghan government. Not The Americans so already some issues there and of course. People has been critical. There was a group of Republicans on Capitol Hill. Who issued a letter saying that? The CAN'T TRUST THE TALIBAN. I guess most of all I want to thank all of the people in the United States for having spent so much in terms of blood in terms of treasure and treasury weeping at war in Afghanistan against al-Qaeda and the Taliban other terrorist groups for two decades every man here knows all too well that death stalks their every. Move more than two thousand three hundred. American troops have died since the start of this war. But when you hear it when you talk about hope you talk about this agreement. People are saying a political solution is the only way you're going to achieve. Pc can't do it militarily and so this may be the only way forward well this kind of the central question throughout this whole twenty years right. Elizabeth has been yes. Everyone agrees we should get out at some point but no one can quite agree on if something really bad happens there. Do we stick with our plan or do we go back and start from scratch. And I think that's something you heard from S. I certainly when I was just traveling with him is if the tobin filled upholder commitments they will forfeit their chance to engage in negotiations with the Afghan government and will not have a say in the future of this country. Us has no problem. Reversing the agreement sending troops back into the country and certainly exercising the right to self-defence Elizabeth McLaughlin summoned from the Pentagon to get on the plane and then a chopper to go into Afghanistan to watch this historic moment. Elizabeth thanks so much. Thanks.

"We don't have an exact death. Rate FOR CORONA virus. People have thrown out two percent over in Wuhan China Wuhan. It's actually zero point seven in the rest of China plus. There's just lots of people who are walking around with mild cases. They're not going to the hospital. Certainly not being included in death rates so doctors say we should have better stats soon but for the time being on an individual medical level. This is not something the panic over the meat counter so are completely empty. I've never seen anything like that at Costco but ask someone who's about to cash out their 401k. Whether this feels like an emergency asked the small business owner who's waiting for their product to come off the line in China or ask. I don't know a ticket taker at Balon Spain. A SOCCER STADIUM IN ITALY AS ITALIAN OFFICIALS. Cancel match after match happening all over. And it doesn't take a huge death toll to have a dramatic impact on people's lives. And this is why news like this is so disconcerting tonight. The Corona virus spreading one day after the first confirmed death in the US over the weekend. President trump himself came out to say an American has now died from this in the state of Washington but then we learned. That's not the only death and there are several new cases in that county one of the patients being a postal worker. According to new findings researchers now believe Cova Nineteen has been infecting people in Washington state for weeks. What we're seeing as the tip of the Iceberg. In all likelihood there is ongoing low level transmission so the chief question for officials is going to be one. What are you GonNa do about this but also to? How bad is this? Really? Give it to me straight dock and we'll government officials are trying to be as clear as they can about question number one number two. Just what's happening is becoming the most contentious question in Washington throughout the weekend. We saw president trump at different events. Take very different approaches to this. Abc's Kiro Phillips at the White House right now and Kira you got to ask the president directly about how he's handling this. How does he see this outbreak? Well first of all. He wasn't very happy with me. And I asked a very simple and direct question about these experts that he has brought in to be a part of this corona virus task force. You received a lot of criticism regarding that in particular about Dr Anthony Fauci. He is world renowned in contagious diseases. And one of the experts Dr Anthony Fao. There were reports out there that foul. She was being Muslim. Can you tell us that? This widely respected expert. Dr Fouled. She will have every opportunity to tell us the truth. That's a good question. Because he has because he has had that ability to do virtually whatever he's wanted to do and in fact in fact he was never muzzled and the president has been very defensive about this and I'd like to just ask and cautioned that the media we would respectfully asked the media and politicians and everybody else involved not to anything to incite panic. There's no reason to panic but clearly. This has become a political issue. The fact is the president was briefed on Corona Virus. Two months ago but he just buried his head in the sand. This president has not invested like he should of his budget. You haven't even prepared test kid to determine whether or not anybody has virus Democrats are talking about it and president trump is talking about it and he's saying that they are making it the next hoax. They tried the impeachment hoax. You know the president is saying that the Democrats are trying to make him look bad. They've been doing it since she got in. It's all turning they lost. It's all turning think of it. Think of it. This is the new hoax. And they're jumping on this word hoax but the president used that word hoax again on Saturday. I'm not talking about what's happening here and took in what they're doing that's the hoax. And then you've got his acting chief-of-staff Mick Mulvaney. It absolutely Israel. There's no question about it but you saw the present the other day. The flu is real at any particular time. Twenty million people in this country are GonNa flu. The flu kills people. It does this is not a bowl and he's saying well just don't watch TV. I got a note today from from from a reporter saying what are you going to do today to calm the markets and really what? I might do today call. The markets is tell people turn their televisions offer. Twenty four hours and emphasized that it's the Democrats using this issue this disease as a way to bring the president down. It was going to say it's one thing to say a Dole. Listen TO THAT POLITICAL PARTY. You should get the vetted information. It's another thing to tell people. Don't actually go and get the vetted information from news outlets a another thing that came up here. It was the president brought up a number of cases he he said there were twenty two cases in the US that's dozens lower than what we've been reporting. Can you just explain the difference there? So the president wasn't necessarily wrong. He was taking a specific chunk of numbers. At this moment we have twenty two patients in the United States. Curly when he brought up twenty two he was talking about the individuals that have gone through the public health. He wasn't talking about others. That have come back here to the. Us that remain Corentin and he wasn't talking about Those that were impacted on the cruise ship will and so let's forget for a second about how Washington's portraying this Kira. What's the actual plan? They're like what does need to get done this week. There are issues of policy here. The trump administration is implementing. New travel restrictions. We are urging Americans to not travel to the areas in Italy and the areas in South Korea that are most affected by the corona virus with Iran the administration is taking a more aggressive stance saying Iranians or any foreign nationals. In Iran for the last fourteen days will not be allowed to enter the. Us Day all the big pharmaceutical companies are coming to the oval. He will be meeting with them to talk about a vaccine. And of course one of the big issues we've been talking about. Are these testing kits. Cdc just widened their testing criteria. At first they were focused on people who traveled or came in contact with someone who tested positive. Now they're also looking at patients with severe symptoms and no explanation. I'm happy to report that this weekend. more than fifteen thousand testing kids have been released also. The end vice president did go on the Sunday morning shows and talk about the fact that Moore have been ordered. Fifteen thousand kits are in the mail They're rolling out and also the head of the. Fda has granted emergency approval for various labs and private companies to be coming up with these corona virus testing kits again. That's one of the lessons from that outbreak in Washington as you can say there's only X. number of cases out there but if you're not testing lots of people you don't know the true number and as of last week you had major cities like Boston. Who couldn't even test their samples that day they actually had to send their samples down to the CDC in Atlanta just to find out if that person had cove in Nineteen Cure Phillips at the White House. Thank you you. Bet Brad. Exxon start here. The US reached a deal with the Taliban. But the actual government in Afghanistan didn't will break down. What snags were already seeing.

"Looking back to without fail at my conversation with Mayor Nan. Whaley during president trump's brief trip to Dayton Mayor Ueli navigated a difficult course. She tried to strike a balance between the personal and the political comforting victims and thanking first responders on the one hand and advocating for gun reform form on the other and after the president's Rowen visit she dove right back into managing the crisis briefing the press and it wasn't until later that she could begin to process what had happened on that day. And what it all meant this was like such a sort of like an with basically a week your four days four days the city goes through this horrible tragedy. You're sort of like all of a sudden find yourself into the national spotlight and then mm-hmm spending a day with The most I mean in the world powerful man in the world and what I don't know what do you make of that that experience. It's now to D- do you have any takeaways from it. I have to be honest. I get really sad when I think about this. The Sky is more interested in how he's received rather than what he can do. Yeah so I like I have a really really hard time with it. Like just just thinking about it and thinking how just how uninterested people are making sure something like dating never happens again and mm-hmm and I mean it it it it does. It makes it hard some days to do the work. And you know what I find is if you can keep the conversation local the better off you are if you can and then if you can't do local state but then more and more it's getting worse and worse statewide wide Because of national pushes and then if it's national like there is no incentive to govern and You know frankly You know what I see is On both sides. If you govern you lose does it. Does it feel like that because because what you're describing is basically a different set of incentives on a national level local level and sort of the incentives are if the other side benefits in any way. Then we have to be against right that I think that's right but so do nothing do nothing. Don't like even if it's something that Pr. There's pretty broad agreement on such as an assault weapon ban right there. That's that's the thing that's perplexing right. I think isn't the polling on that like most people are yeah. Most people support assault weapon ban and nine out of ten support a background check and nine out of ten like nine out of ten ohioans. Don't even like the Buckeyes I mean. It's it's an insane number people agreeing on something local Husky team for this not listening yes Rate and so like nine out of ten so the question is like how can that be. If like nine out of ten Americans support this thing how is it still not happening. How can we not even a thing that like the the the ninety percent of the country wants us to do right? There's there's incentive for inaction not cooperation and that's the opposite and local Ray. The incentive is to take care of the problem to get it done to move Yvonne to figure a win and you know we constantly are like you know from Labor negotiations to economic development deals to to paving street is like like. Where's the win win win win? Where's the win win? And so when you're doing that and then you look up and see what happens state nationally on no. It's a zero. Oh some game You just exasperated by it right. Yeah why is it easier on a local level. I think you have to you know people very personally and you have to Look people in the eye every day. I think I think to the government that's local the one that actually affects your daily life in a in a more more regular way you know as a real annoying fact if your water doesn't work or you yeah of water is not safe for. You can't get out of your house because the snow is not plowed or and you've got people emailing you about speed bumps like you you you know in hiding you know I just went. Got My hair done on the lady that does my hair said somebody else you know. Of course everyone knows who does my hair in town and She said Oh yes someone came and she said Hey.

"mayor" Discussed on What A Day
"On today's show the latest in the twenty twenty days what to expect this week and impeachment news used and an update on death. Row Inmate. Rodney read there is yet another democratic debate coming up on Wednesday night and we thought it'd be a good time to get everybody up to speed on a few developing story lines in the twenty twenty presidential race as a rule. I think we're going to try not to chase pulls and horse race stuff daily on here but it's good to check in on broader themes and trends as we go forward. Yeah that's right so lots of pressing news is happening all the time and I personally I just feel like twenty twenty is it feels further away that it is. I get that Ed but I just I haven't been following closely but this is your wheelhouse Gideon even on the trailer for your super into this stuff. What should we know? Yeah I mean I think from this weekend I mean you're right in the fact that it is very far away we should take everything in stride because you know things have changed like day to day but I I think the theme of the weekend itself was that the Pete bump the booty bump is sort of real at least for now There was another des Moines Register poll from Iowa that had add the southbound Merrin first place at twenty five percents And then behind him. You Know Senator Warren at sixteen former Vice President Joe Biden a fifteen senator Sanders At fifteen so he's been kind of steady climbing up in in Iowa. Wow Yeah he's really doing it but I mean it's it's still early. Yeah Yeah am I wrong about this. It's it's it's November. Yeah especially it is November especially especially for this kind of race right. We don't exactly ever know what's going to happen with Iowa because it is is a unique state it has unique caucus process in the past. You know we've seen polls around this time leading up to it where where they haven't exactly matched the final result and the theme of this particular primary seems to be that everyone is shopping around all the time like like people people lead in polls than you look at it more closely and it's like a massive percentage of people are still making up their minds and if you made them a casserole at your Cedar. Peter Rabbit's house like maybe they would come around to your something. Okay got it so then. Why is Pete doing so well right now specifically yeah I think they made a big play for Iowa? I think they unrealized early on. Okay this guy. Caught on with media through like a cohesive strategy that we had earlier this year we've really sort of built him up from Basically nothing and I don't mean that in a d like offensive way like the guy was a mayor of a place where he right where he won I think less than ten thousand votes votes to be elected and then they made this huge sort of financial. Push their yeah. He's in the cover story on this month because he really well. He's he's like the stories listed on. Okay well basically the same thing It makes you feel better. So long as he's on the cover of Vanity Fair. I think his odds will be okay. He's he's not in a room button to on a dirt road. It's not too soon. I apologize but I think the other thing that that his unique success is in Iowa right now is saying to some of the other candidates particularly because when you look at all of the polling for for Mayor Pete. That's the place where he's doing the best and then in a lot of these other polls of other states and other national stuff you go down the line for minority voters and he is clocking like zero or low. Oh single digits and that sort of bring up this conversation from people like Castro who frankly doesn't have that much more to lose in this race anymore like really kind of swinging at the fences at him like he was saying like. It's not a good idea to have somebody lead the party. Who is not going to be able to win minority voters so? I think it's an interesting conversation. That people are having right now about it. Yeah definitely a legit Combo but also I think it's interesting to see this sort of mayor on mayor bashing and speaking the mayor's kind of want to check in on this our old friend. Our old rich billionaire friend Michael Bloomberg Elba obidos apparently for real about this renting steps. It can we talk about the the headlines from the weekend yes so Bloomberg after last week. Sort of thinking about running maybe filing in a couple of places toying with it. He went out in Brooklyn Glen. I think on Sunday and apologize for his. Stop and Frisk Policy. That was basically. It wasn't a one off thing. Let's try it for the year type of thing like it was embedded in his legacy as mayor of the city. Here's what he had to say about it. I got something important wrong. I I got something important really wrong. I didn't understand that back them. The full impact that stocks were having on the black and Latino communities. I was totally focused on saving lives but as we know good intentions aren't good enough. Well I mean the evidence has been sort of clear at least in the last decade or so that you know the this policy the effects that it was having from the New York Times of five hundred seventy five thousand stops conducted in two thousand nine black and Latino people were nine times as likely as white people to be targeted by the police allow shocking. Right in twenty eleven. Police officer stopped often questioned about six hundred. eighty-five thousand New Yorkers Eighty seven percent of those. That were stopped. We're black or Latino and a federal district. Judge ruled that the Frisk policy had been carried out in an unconstitutional way in twenty thirteen. Yeah it's just horrible. And it's reflective of his policies in New York you know Bloomberg pioneered this form of aggressive policing that sort of spun off from you know Giuliani's broken windows policies which you know basically you just ask questions later and you invade invade people's privacy and space now you know a lot of ways that made him a hero among police officers but it was very scary being like a black brown person living in the city of that time And like you know I was around that time as well but I do think it's interesting that you know he realizes and I think everyone realizes that to win the Democratic nomination you have to have the support of those communities black and Brown communities and it's a little cliche but also often the case that people you know who've done something something that's widely deemed as racist or at least carried out in a racist fashion You know now. They're relying on a Black Church of people to forgive him so that he can like have their blessing to continue and Yeah I just think that for one that feels outdated and twenty nine. Yeah that's not how you're GONNA get to the community that was most affected acted by this but also I think that it would be right for black people and you know any people of color to be skeptical about a candidate given his actual record. Well Yeah and also Oh for Bloomberg. It's difficult to to know win. And how he's being earnest about. What is he saying? Because part of why this came off breath as so nakedly opportunistic to a lot of people is the fact that in March he said that part of the reason why he wasn't running for president then this was literally just this year was because he didn't want to apologize for things like this and turn it into what he was calling a quote apology tour because he was saying the other candidates had been basically almost soft in a sense because they were reflecting on their own legacies and what they themselves have done well like like we set up top. We've got another debate coming this week. It's being hosted in Atlanta Tyler Perry studios which means we can probably expect a joke from Amy Klobuchar. Will it land. Let's find out but what should we all be paying attention to for this specific debate and I'm asking for a friend not as somebody who has watch it and yet does not want to. Yeah right well I mean I think probably a lot of more of the same But I think that given what we said about Buddha judge judge above my guess is that he's GonNa face a lot of new scrutiny whenever somebody is deemed front runner in a race and especially a person like him him. That hasn't necessarily been the focus of a lot of these sort of attacks between the candidates yet. I think I think there's going to be a lot trained at him. There's going to be more on. Healthcare again a medicare for all senator warrants plans Medicare for all those are probably the two main flashpoints for now but on Wednesday will be covering the debate is always. It's probably the last time that there will be ten candidates on stage at once very sad until of course our own Wa debate to which all are welcome including twenty-six Democratic presidential a hopeful Lincoln. Chafee who really wanted to get on board with the metric system honestly. I don't agree. I like feet okay. So someone's GonNa cut that part of the. I can't say I like feet. You knew what I meant. I think it's a fine a unit of measurement. I don't think that you know you don't have to fix it. John Lennon just coming up. All right we'll be back with debate steph later this week.
