It's been 10 years since the start of protest that turned into Syria's civil war. Ah, conflict that has claimed 400,000 lives and pushed more than five million people to flee the country. Denmark is one of many nations that took them in. But a little over A year ago, Danish authorities decided that even though the conflict continues, parts of Syria are safe enough for refugees to return. And that means some Syrians now in Denmark have had their residency permits canceled. Cissel Overgaard has the story A few months ago, he but l wrestler and red one, Joma decided that after six years in Denmark, it was time to put down roots. So the couple found a small but pristine new Roadhouse just outside the city of silk aboard here, their three kids could go to a quieter school. Tomorrow would be closer to his job at a pizzeria and official would be able to continue her studies and then in December on the very day they moved in came news that the family was being sent back to Syria. Harada Beetle. This decision means life or death. The words to send us back to Syria means to destroy our lives. My wife's life and my Children's life. Joma says They have nothing and no one left in Syria and because he protested against the Assad regime. He fears arrest if he returns. The couple has appealed the decision. But for now, their lives are on hold. The walls of their new apartment remain empty. The living room almost bare Katie on forgiveness will cut our 11 o'clock. All I can think about is the decision from the immigration service. Otherwise I would be doing many things continuing my studies raising my Children dreaming about their future. It's all at a standstill. All restless First husband was killed before her eyes in Syria. Joma says he doesn't understand why Denmark would send them back. Yes. McDaniel Kambia world. The name Denmark used to be a shining example when it came to human rights, But now racism is ruining Denmark's reputation in the whole world. Mikola been Dixon, who heads the Danish advocacy group Refugees. Welcome says Denmark is deliberately trying to scare asylum seekers away by telling stories about how bad Life is as an asylum seeker here and that even if you are among the lucky ones who are granted asylum, you will be kicked out. Sooner or later. Denmark's most recent hard turn on immigration is part of the center left government's attempt to capture the populist vote from the far right. Politically, it's working. But then, Dixon says, In some cases, it also has Denmark on the verge of breaking international law that trying to find out where is the limit, actually. But even as the U. N criticizes, then mark stance on refugees, Bendixen says international guidelines on repatriation are open to interpretation, making the government's policy hard to challenge. The irony is that because Denmark has not resumed diplomatic relations with Syria, rejected asylum seekers cannot be forcefully deported of the 94 Syrian refugees who lost their Danish resident's permits in 2020. Some are still under appeal. But Bendixen says some 30 people have already lost their appeals. The choice at that point is either to live indefinitely in a deportation center to go back to Syria voluntarily or to go underground. You get began improves pigment. Denmark's integration minister points out that Syrian refugees who go home get money to help rebuild their homeland.

Northern Ireland assembly meets after sixth night of unrest
"Edition of the briefing with me. Andrew mueller last night for the sixth consecutive night northern ireland witnessed scenes of the kind of violence likely to prompt considerable agitation in observers with long enough memories. More than fifty. Five police officers are known to have been injured in the last week and considerable damage done to buildings and vehicles. The worst of the most recent disturbances occurred around one of these so-called peace walls which separate nationalist and loyalist communities in west belfast. The northern ireland assembly has been recalled for an emergency session at stormont today on joined with more on this by lord. Peter hain former secretary of state for northern ireland lord as you would know better than most people the good agreement did not end sectarian tension in northern ireland. There has been sporadic tension and violence over the decades since but measured against that scale. How bad is what we're seeing. Now was nothing like as you indicate the level of bombing and assassination and horror at the said. He has also troubles brought to northern ireland. Whistle the terrorism but It is serious and it needs to be addressed not just by northern ireland's leaders who displaying frankly a lack of leadership which is really disturbing but also by trade minister boris johnson and state for northern ireland who've been pretty absent from the scene in northern ireland now full quite a while and especially over this. What's your read of what's behind this because there is always the trap of reading significance which might not exist into what might just be a bunch of board young men looking for trouble. No this is that there are elements of that and they're a variety of other factors but the main problem has arisen over frustration amongst the unionist community the protestant community over the fact that there are checks and controls in for businesses doing trade. With great britain with england scotland or wales across the irish sea northern ireland of course is on an island with the republic of ireland to the cells and also within the united kingdom and within the united kingdom the rest of the united kingdom there are no barriers to trade of any kind between scotland. And or between wales and england for that matter scotland wales but they're on house result of brexit across the irish sea between england scotland and wales to northern ireland for the first time and that is the reason because the type of brexit that boris johnson. The prime minister pursued which was to break any real alignment with the european trade and customs arrangements and to go for at entirely separate of great britain but in order to make sure that the good friday peace process and the stability which has brought since ninety nine hundred was maintained. The irish border had to be kept open. Let's say the border between northern ireland and the republic of ireland to itself as it has been now for decades and has become invisible with all sorts of human activity. Crossing it in their efforts not had the toxic role played a toxic role. Because it's been invisible it did in generations gone by and that's that's also the good if however that's it become the external frontier customs frontier of the european union. Then it could have ignited all those old problems that had beset and an bedeviled northern ireland. So instead what boris johnson agreed to was to keep the border open that men the northern ireland remained in the european union's customs union and it's trading markets but that's Inevitably because the united kingdom was leaving Great britain would be outside those arrangements so they have to be checks across the irish sea between northern ireland and great britain. of course. The prime minister denied this in his normal airy way At the beginning on the unionists and loyalists in particular who some of the most hardline involved feel betrayed. Because he didn't he wasn't straight with them way. Do you save in the causal connection between that dissatisfaction with the post brexit arrangements. And what we've seen in west belfast. Is it possible that there are people who are or were associated with loyalist paramilitarism. Who are leveraging that discontent to cause trouble. Yes there are and they're also criminals amongst them who drug. Traffic is and so on who've presented a police crackdown which has been quite effective in their communities to try and get rid of this drug trafficking problem and bought ignited. Not because of that so much though it's fit into it but also but primarily because suddenly loyalist protestant unionists suddenly found that Country what boris johnson told them. There are actually checks and controls strangling a lot of northern ireland businesses in a mountain of tape and naturally they see that as a break within the united kingdom because which puts northern ireland in a different place from say england scotland or wales and so they feel that their fundamental beliefs in the the union of the united kingdom northern ireland. Being within that is being threatened. And that is what ignites it. There was none of this until that issue suddenly arose around new year because the prime minister frankly say told a lot of porky's on us and didn't level with the unionist community and they suddenly found themselves in this predicament and had created Insecurity and understandable anxiety out of which these other factors criminality usa Vandalism and so on out of which that's fed you mentioned earlier a an absence of leadership both in northern ireland and in the united kingdom what would a constructive response from especially northern irish politicians. At this point look like presumably not like the one We saw her on twitter from arlene foster who went and it is a a term with which you will be familiar. Full water battery Suggesting that the violence will die quote. Take the focus off the real lawbreakers incheon. Fine that's probably not the most helpful into intercession. She could have made at this point. Is it well when you become first minister which is effective northern ireland as she is Although it's an unusual arrangement that she has joins us with the deputy minister. Michelle neil who's a shouldn't fain leader when you reach these positions you've got to speak for the whole of the community promises and president presidents naturally have their own party agendas to follow in their own party members to satisfy in any country in any democratic system. But you're trying to speak for the whole nation and that for the whole nation as well once you assume those positions and what has been disappointing about both of them and especially in recent days. Me aline fosters utterances. She's not adopted that role. She's effective acting as a party politician. A democratic unionist party rather than speaking for the whole of the the the the community across northern ireland and across the religious and political divides that have bedeviled for so many generations. And i think that's the kind of leadership we need. And we have gossips equally across the water London has been virtually silent on northern ireland. Now full rarely ever since David cameron and the conservatives came to power in two thousand ten under make this point on a on a party. Basis is a leave a politician and also it was labor secretary of state for northern ireland. A because it's traditionally been a nonpartisan issue between both the major parties. I make it. Because i'm genuinely an i've being hugely critical of the the absence of of number ten downing street of the prime minister in a way. That's attorney blend. Gordon brown were in vogue. John major's conservative prime minister before them. playing an honest broker role effectively. What they've done is said will not you know the the good friday process the peace settlement that i helped to negotiate in two thousand seven that brought the old enemies to share power together. That that's all done and dusted and therefore we can concentrate on the other pressures of government and that was fatal So we only seen a couple of sentences from the prime minister over the last few days when parts of belfast up in flames and a couple of tweets from the northern ireland secretary of state. Frankly that's not good enough. They should be convening all party. Talks in person to try and resolve these as labor shattered secretary. St louis hague has called for And they should be on the case all the time instead of effectively absence without leave as has been the case over northern ireland now sadly for a number of years lord haein. Thank you as always for joining us. You're listening to the briefing. Here is markle's ailing goffin. With the days of the headlines. Thanks andrew in the serum institute.

"michelle" Discussed on The Michelle Obama Podcast
"And. The other thing that. I kind of. Take away from our childhood. I think one of the reasons we get along. So well, the fact that I never felt like I was competing with you and I think that mom and dad did a good job of. Recognizing us as individuals, and so I've tried to do that with me and Sasha is like give them a moment. You note to show me who they are right because you know like I said earlier kids come here with a certain temperament I was always feisty. I was always internal perfectionists. Sasha's temperament is different from elise that's different from Italy your daughter that's different from avery and it's like you've got to give them space and parent the kid you have not the kid you want Ray and mom and dad were good about that. So I always felt secure in who I was and fine with who you were. Right you know your success was my success I wasn't competing with you. So I'm trying my best to make sure that me and Sasha feel like they're on the same team even though there are two girls and all that their success is each other success. That's all you have that. Relationship is special. What dad showed us is that in order to build meaningful relationships with people is that you have to show up for them. Relationships whether it's sibling or parent child or friend relationships, they don't happen through. Osmosis they happen because they make a decision to be very deliberate about. Connecting with people and the connection can look like a bunch of different things. Right it can be a phone call it can be taxed. It can be a whole dinner or set of conversations what what I saw in our father was that nothing replaces getting on the phone and calling somebody showing up for somebody. I. Know that if I call you and I need you, you will call me back. Right away. Yeah you may call back and go you okay but you show up and I want to show up for you. So that's what I would tell people. Yeah. That's like we learned that you gotta show up for people. That's that's a really one. That's a really good one you have to show up is absolutely right I can always trust who you are and I don't know that everybody can say that about their siblings you know mum. That I know I know who you are through through I mean that's that's the wish that I have for all of our kids is then all of our nieces and nephews on Mike our kids that they show up in the world. I don't care who who they are, what their titles are. I don't care how much money they make I don't care whether they're famous or not I want them to show up.

"And political backgrounds and. WHO GREW UP Only knowing. A. Black Man as their president and I know this is frightening to some people out there that want to deny the impact of that These. Kids were raised to believe in a different kind of America and their parents were part of that instilling that belief. That all men are created equal I mean the people were teaching that around the dinner table and young women are being taught in ways now that they can do and be anything in other and they have fathers who are parenting them differently who don't believe that they should Joe, just go off and get married to the highest bidder but that they have to have their own voices and their own careers in their own autonomy. Those have been the conversations around the dinner table. These kids of all races were told that that was Merica and there's honor and truth. And now they're seeing the opposite. At. The highest levels you're seeing the very opposite of what they've been taught to be by their parents of all races. And they're seeing on social media on their phones and it is real and in and it is clear. The hypocrisy is right there. And it is hard to look away. It is hard to look away and that is change and my belief is that these kids will raise their kids differently. Assuming that we don't get so depressed downtrodden that we give up the fight. which is directly tied to voting. 'cause we roll over or we could just protest our way into oblivion. Absent the vote. But if we keep the momentum going in, send a message in this coming election of the America that we want for our kids then that next generation will be even better than we are. It is generational change and it feels a little scary now because we don't know what this is because we've been disappointed in the past right or things started to change and then. We just like with our administration. We thought we were going and run direction and didn't realize that they were still some underlying stuff going on some resentment in some beliefs and some old stories about who we were as people that were still out there. But why why wouldn't they still be out there and they don't go away by magic they go away by being replaced with other stories. So now, our challenges is that we've got to tell those stories and we have to start with telling our own. Loud and clear, and that starts with not telling it with our voice telling it with how we exist in the world by bringing our blackness and Brown and women nece to every table that we're in. We've gotTA bring it all to the table and say. Deal with it. Let's talk about it. Why does it bother you? Why are you afraid? But if we're hiding it and we make a comfortable, well our. Our white brethren never have to adjust because we're not asking them to So. We gotTA start asking him adjust. I can't be your only black friend. Where are the others? It has been a pleasure having you guys here on him. So proud of you. Happy Well as you can see, I am proud to count on China and Kristen and you nee in so many ways they are thoughtful empathetic and just plain old grave I am so incredibly impressed and proud by the women they become and are still becoming. And that's why I'm so grateful to count them as my friends the little sisters I've never had. So if you have some special people in your life, especially, if you're a little bit older than they are I, hope you'll take some time to talk with them and in here what's on their mind especially as we navigate this complex and draining process of wrestling with racial injustice? Even if you just listen especially if you just listen. Because this process of growth and understanding isn't something that's going to happen on social media with a bunch of memes in tweets and Lord knows our politics are not the best avenue for these kind of conversations but if we can reach out. And share our stories and allow each other to be a little vulnerable. Didn't maybe we can make some progress person by person relationship a relationship.

"About the Euclid House? I remember a couple of things. I remember first and foremost in the summertime. How Hot Gusts. Because there was no AC AC invented. Our Aunt Robbie own the home with her husband Terry Uncle Victor Terry Terry yes. We called him Terry for some strange reason, a distinguished the most distinguished man we knew at the time ever knew I mean Terry was. You know now we know it is distinguished but when he was just Kinda like, why is this guy dressed up? Wore a three piece suit everyday everyday everyday. He be mowing the lawn with his Fedora on the. He still had the vest on he took the jacket off cutting the. On Yard work. was. laxed is tie on every single day. When I think of Euclid. When I think of our childhood I, think of music. Music was the backdrop of everything. We didn't do anything without music, and that's because our father was a big jazz lover and had a huge jess album collection. That he cherished and our maternal grandfather southside was a big music enthusiasts and he had he had a wall full of jazz at I remember. Both of those homes south sides home in our home where you walk in and dad's got a record plan and it could have been dizzy Gillespie Miles Davis, or thelonious monk needed. That was some made up name. Small, it's like really dead. His name. Who did that did that to that man? The thing I liked about them is that they they didn't treat their albums in music as you can't touch these little kids you. We were taught how to use a record player properly remember you had learn how to take the the album out of the vinyl and you couldn't touch the side. You couldn't put your finger fingers on. You had to hold the rim like it was a precious disc and you just blow on it. You know to clean up just light blow you know you couldn't spit on it. You know it was a light blow. Then you lay it on the turntable, put it on the first song and let it play. You know and we used to like a certain song on an album. You try to put it in that little groove and you'd always get in trouble because. You'd scratch it s you know but we were still allowed to figure it out. You know it was there was never never any hands off. So we had our own albums and played our own music and one of my favorites was the Jackson Five. Stop the love you say, yes and ABC on the B. Side that was that little record on five. Our. Little bitty little makeshif record player. It wasn't the stereo system, but it was the thing you plugged in and you could put the disk in the forty five so you could play it. Yeah but we used to love playing the Jackson Five. Stop. Saving Taking slow I will someday you'll be all alone. And then Robbie live downstairs and taught piano. So you know we heard piano music trickling up through the floorboards of students good and bad playing lullabies and we both took piano lessons although you gave up quite early and you've never looked like you practice you never. I would practice but I practice bare minimum. If they said, you should practice thirty minutes. I would practice thirty minutes in like fifteen seconds and that's it and that's it. I'm done I'm going onto the next thing and you're very hard on yourself I'm going to digress a little bit because. Of Practice and here's our practice. I'm playing the tune and I hit a wrong note I just keep going and I finish it off, and then I'll go back again. Fracture you didn't. It got to start over and then it bit got to start over. Dent, Let. US just kept starting over because you had to play the whole whole thing. Perfectly that was that. Mattis. My maddening. Tease me a little bit about the perfectionism, but you didn't make me feel bad about it. You know no, it was. It was it was like a badge of honor slash joke slash hope she grows out of this. I remember you saying I've got a good idea. We can't get mom and dad to stop smoking break all their cigarettes psych sounded like a good plan. It sounded like a great idea. Well, that was after a couple of other attempts. We tried to dip their member. We took the tips of the cigarettes and dipping them in hot sauces, lemon juice and. That that would turn them off. That would turn that they wouldn't notice that cigarettes were damp. And they would just think. Cigarette Butts are. You know maybe I should cut this out. I remember. Distinctly, Dad put one in his mouth FAGO. This something wrong with these filters. And it didn't work. So I guess we figured after we dip them the tips in lemon juice and hot sauce than what was left but to just crushed. teeny pieces. So who actually did the crushing I? Know we both did I remember because there was a there were like two cartons underneath a sink and when we didn't even realize how expensive cigarettes were. Yeah and we broke two cartons worth. Yeah. Yeah. But the really. Scary but the funny thing about that whole thing was when mom when they got home and they were looking for this bigger and you going around the house. and. We're and we're sitting at the TV looking like trying to look at. But all always thinking it's working. It's they know they won't notice that their six missing gone and this'll be it'll be the end of like, Oh, well, under cigarettes I guess we're done with that bad hand. Then finally, mom steps on the garbage can in the topless she's frazier. Frazier. Craig Michelle what is going on well, and by then we were in tears. of We really think this is not thought the reaction would be. This was supposed to end. We were supposed to in happily with people with our parents going young people were correct and I'm glad you threw away our cigarettes. Now we know the error of our ways it didn't work out that way we got in trouble got in trouble and so much trouble. hour-long..

"Tie Everybody I. AM Michelle. Obama. And this is the Michelle Obama podcast. On this episode we are revisiting the mentor relationship but this time we're looking at it from the other side. On a recent episode I spoke with my Dear Friend and mentor Valerie Jarrett about how the best mentorship experiences grow and evolve over time and in this episode I WanNa talk with some people who have been important in my life. So, I WANNA welcome three very special young women, China and Kristen, and you name to our podcast today. These three all started out working with me in various capacities in the White House. And they've all stayed in my life for years. Each of them has grown and matured and. ME At every turn. while. I've known them since they were babies today I, count them as true friends and I know that I've learned as much or more from them as they have for me. So, in this episode I just wanted to talk about her relationships and also what's been going on in the world and what it's like to be black women in this moment in history. So why don't you all start by introducing yourselves? I'm Kristin Jones and I think I might you back in like two thousand nine when I was an intern in the first white? House class which was pretty cool and then I came back and Started as your research associate in the East Wing, and then spent like seven and a half years like as your assistant and kind of do a lot of everything. Hey so I'm trying to Clinton originally from Miami Florida always gotTa Rip Floor Way. I was actually an intern in the White House during fall two, thousand, ten and from there I went on to do something called at the. Following my internship and then I got a call from the first lady's Office to become her body person or trip director in Twenty fifteen. And I've been with her ever since My name is John Damn to I'm your hair stylist I got into the Obama world's in two thousand and nine. But yeah, I've been a part of your life ever since started off with your daughters primarily in your mom and then kind of made my way up the ranks and and and I'm now with you but you're not just with me when you're. Not doing my hair, you're also a little baby baller yourself. I am also have the lawn that I opened in two, thousand seventeen and in two thousand Nineteen I launched my business coaching program for hairstylist. So when I'm not with you, I'm always finding something else to do always always and you were how old when you came onto ninety one I had just turned twenty one I think a few months prior. and I was scared I didn't WanNA come at first. Yeah. Won't you talk a little bit about that? So when I got opportunity to move to DC to work with you all. My Child of Immigrants My dad was not having it. He was like, Oh, you're going to drop out of college will you can't brush over that? You are the Child of Immigrants Yes 'cause that that says a lot right there. So I'm first generation. Ethiopian. American and. My parents came to this country obviously to provide a better life for us and so traditionally when they when anyone thinks of success and when they measure success to be, it's like you're going to be a doctor, a lawyer, an engineer me saying that I wanted to drop out of college to do hair. It just wasn't accepted. It was just like you're going to do what? No know. That's just that's not accepted an even once I relocated and I took the position and I moved to DC I remember my dad didn't talk to me for three months and it was my mom kind of like smoothing it over to be like look she's taking care of herself financially like she's. Okay. She's fine and there was opportunity to come work for the first family the first black family in the United States. It was like how was I going to turn this down because there was this path that my parents created for me and I and I understood that what they understood to be success was very limited right by American culture by African culture. So for me, it was just of like I'm just going to be good at it and I'm GonNa show you like I could still make something of myself. If I don't go work in an office you know each of you you know pretty much all of your roles are the pads you take in or very unconventional. Kristen. You were coming out of college you worked for teach for America, your parents black to So the notion that you were going to intern. In an unpaid internship because let's just. Clear. Starting out in the White House is for free. So what did it take to convince your family's or what was it in you that made you decide to take this leap my mom actually was the one who pressured me into applying for the internship. She was really relentless about it. I mean. She just got you guys know those emails that around to like black people where there's like literally like fifty thousand emails on it and it was like for scholarships and. That's how we found out about the White House internship and so I applied. In came and my parents were pretty supportive. And I think the biggest stretch for them has really been post White House. So in many ways, your mom was thinking, okay. You know might baby girl is going to be working with the President President Obama First Lady She's GonNa be. Judge. Breyer, this is going to be an, Oh, you took a turn right and I'm like I want to try to build something all the way from the ground up she's like. That's Leave. The White House and you get a huge salary and you stay beer but I have to say like it was my time at the White House my time with you are time travelling the world really made me want to build something of my own in China. What about you? You don't come from wealth and privilege. Yeah Yeah. So we I applied to the White House internship get accepted. Did advance for a few years and at that point of Disney mushroom left right because sars-like side left doing advance in twenty thirteen and began working at Disney for about two years and then this you know once in a lifetime opportunity came about to be Mrs Obama's body. person. I was hesitant because I'm someone who really believes instability. So in my mind I'm like, why would I take that leap and potentially be out of a job in the next two years versus thing at Disney and climbing the corporate ladder? So. My mom explained that you know this is the opportunity of a lifetime and she was right. For Mom I know I, always think her. Three.

I was told right but I don't hold me to that because I'm not sure but she It was so good and it was so like I can liken it to. I don't know if you're able to. I had just given birth to Lola. Thank and she had just given birth to Rocco and she did that music tour member. She did only like five cities and she was on Roseland ballroom. Yes I got to see her there and it was kind of like that right whereas very kind of intimate but she did it is like a Broadway show. She does have like those moments and she is in. You know flat shoes the whole time because of her hips. My goodness thought again. She looked amazing sang. She sounded the best. I've heard her in years really. Wow yeah this is enough to dance around. So that's got a lot. Would you go with I went with Anne? And how'd you guys get the tickets? We bought them the old fashioned way. Right and my knees. Yes how? How much do you think they were worth your tickets? They're probably about a thousand to fifteen hundred a ticket because I was really close Something new that she did there that I've never experienced before is no phones allowed Yeah that's a great idea. Wait I. That's why we've never seen any footage from this show. That's why it's unless she wants you to. It's actually brilliant. So what you do is. Have you ever done this at a concert? So you go in and they give you a neoprene bag right so like a scuba back. Yeah they close it with the machine and you can open it until you leave and as you're walking out the door they have people unlocking them on you. Throw the bags into been. Yes you know. I'm not a phone person. No I know you hate I hate it just. It's something that I am not thinking about other people trying to reach me. Or what is even? I have trouble using the phone to find out. What was Mitzi? Gaynor's last movie you know because a lot of times those things come up and I say fair and you are both people who just take that phone out and I never seem to find Internet connection so I could discourage I know it. Takes you three days to text me back? Yeah no I'm not but I know that about you. The phone will sit in my bag. And I'll go. I guess I should probably check what's going on.

It's a real excuse especially with kids with mental illness. Trust me. You don't know what's going to happen at any moment now. It's much better now.

You don't claim him than Y'all are poop because they don't claim me Mike School but my one moment that's stuck stuck out to me. I think it was episode. You'll tell me it was one or two No must be episode. One when you're in the bar that you're buying so without giving anything away you're in the bar that you're buying And my favorite moment of the whole thing was was. I believe. It's it's the that scene there's lighting in it. That's exactly like Angelica Huston in addams family values you don't know you've seen addams family. Yes so every time. She's in a scene. You know it's kind of gray and there's a light box which I try to you when I did. Strictly and I did the atoms whom I tried to kind of highlight the hell out of my eyes to give a nod to that sure you. You have a scene where it's more tissue lighting dark and it might not be in the bar might be in the apartment or in the back but you're just lit here in the eye and it's like my favorite thing it's funny because you know a director of You know he told me he was going to take care of me because that was one of my concerns aside from revealing so much of myself in the show my other concern. was you know the lighting. Because lighting is everything and looking skin texture texture and all that kind of stuff but he says no no. No I'M GONNA I'm GonNa look after you. I'm GonNa make sure that we emphasize I want. I want to see your freckles. And we're we're going to light this thing in a way that you're going to be very happy. Oh it was amazing. I was like my giddy little heart just for that little nod and I wonder if he realized that's the whole thing is great in in and of itself. I can't wait to stream it because I saw I saw each one individually like about three weeks or three like three weeks apart so I I know what happens but I don't really remember bird them a lot of them little pieces of round so people listening or going. What are you talking about? You shot it you have to understand it you shoot everything out of sequence and then when they put it together. You don't know what it's going to look like Bruce saying that's kind of a normal thing. We shot it and then we went into editing and when we finished I would go in like a Oh once every three weeks to see a finished product right and then so every three weeks maybe every two weeks. I don't know I would see another one and that that was the last time I saw one was probably three months ago. Maybe oh fund something like that so I I can't wait to stream stream it on my own makes me want to have an RV and it was so fun. Yeah Dude you get a chance to watch the morning show. No I don't have apple TV well. No I don't have apple whatever that is a little plus you actually get a code in the mail for free for a year when you're on the voting committee. Oh okay so use it and watch it. And then I'm I'm gonNA leave this note in there but people that are listening that I've watched it because it's brilliant it's brilliant It's the best work Jennifer Aniston has ever done with. That said we need to talk about lot. Reese Witherspoon swigs in it because they are horrendous. Really took them of ten episodes. Took them eight to figure out what to do with. It are the meant to be horrendous. Knell no no it took them a while like the part was moving till they figured out. Oh it works best here. It's just in this day and age. This always dumbfounded me with all the talented hairdresser is out there. All the gays in the world and some people cannot get their hair to go not going out them here and and this is a character so it's not her so I don't feel bad saying but the whigs were really bad Hard to take your eyes off of bad But when you see it you'll you'll get it well. That does bother me because I'm always looking for wigs. I'm always looking at. What people are doing with their wigs and riots done well again? I'll say it. I've said it before. Nobody Iraq's like Nicole Kidman. That bitch has the latest front game on. She knows she noise. She knows she noises. He's I had a judy. She knows she knows how to do. A lights front like no one else. She Nour's yes she does has and people should ask her. I somebody to ask her. I mean her in Reza friends they did a big little lies. Reese Camille. What's today okay? Oh it's bad really. And maybe she called Nikki Kaye. Yeah eight episodes instead of a is that also you gotta write your way apart. Should be over there. Wait just wait. You know the problem with most of those things that they have too much too much hair in the whig if if you want to emulate real hair real hair doesn't have that much heavy it's too heavy. Yeah and so that's why when years ago in. La when everybody had so many extensions it was like that could not grow out of a human head and so you know a little bit goes a long way and it comes to extensions when it comes comes to wigs. Also people don't have to cut them right but these were bad but they did finally get together also. We were talking about movies that we watch on the plane so I saw quite a few. I saw taunt did you. Did you see joker. No Oh I got the DVD. I'm GonNa Watch I got the DVD. He's GonNa win isn't he. Yeah he'll win. He'll win is he. You beat Adam. Sandler and uncut gems is that a net flicks movie now. It's a new movie in the theater on Jacob I'm enticed is so great. Yeah and Adam Sandler. Yeah this is. It looks like the best performance that he's ever done.

"michelle" Discussed on RuPaul: What's The Tee with Michelle Visage
"We've got Michelle Sasha's back back in the house she's gone for a long time months for my left girl. Came back elating. Yes you certainly did and did you ever come back and visit your family while you were way. Why would I do know to be honest? I mean there was facetime which is all the time. Yeah my head was really in that game because this wasn't like a big brother other situation where you just go and be. Yeah I had. I danced eight to ten hours a day and GIO did. We did not break for lunch. You know I think we went to Nando is once a work otherwise otherwise it would be like when we did the after show. It was a full on thing because I wanted to be the best in that fricken show. Yes I wanted to be the best that I could be. I wanted to be out there for women of a certain age to show my kids to show whoever you are never too late to learn the shit. I've loved it forever. I've never taken a class and Now like it's changed my life. I bet no I could see it in the way your body took in the information I could see it. How the way you moved you have to love it to be able to move the way you really do? So who ended up winning Kelvin Kelvin. One he was so he was kind of the beefy one. Yes who's fun. And not he was. He was beautiful black girl from South Africa. Ot Mabuza don't we'll have the symmetrical the girl you know. Don't slap me What's her name Bernadette Bernadette she had that hair Brunette what dance you saw she likes skin Nah she dark skinned. Okay No. I don't remember her. See Her sisters adjudge. Oh Yeah okay I know the does Let's see I'll show you a picture of them show me and he had the fat ass yeah. He's like a bodybuilder. Oh He's a bodybuilder. He's not the sort of comical guy you. I know. You're thinking of Chris Ramsey. Oh my God he's white. Yeah Oh that doesn't matter. He was White Kelvin's white I don't you know I'm I'm a show you because I went out to see those two. Yeah Oh yeah yeah. I remember him because he's the good looking one and good dancer. Yeah he won he won and tell me about this voting system. Because okay what happened. I didn't learn about this until later but SAM. Oh Yeah Oh yeah. He's he's got a fat ass. Well yeah he's got a great body I didn't learn until much later that a when I went to visit. You guys yes. There is the the judging that happens then and then later that night you do the dance again. Same dance is that right. You do the performance on Saturday night at eight o'clock yes. But then at ten o'clock you do it again if you're in the dance off only if you're in in the bottom two. Oh okay. It's almost like you know. Sing off like you gotta fight to live. Sing for your life correct. Exactly what should the bottom two. So how do they find. I know who the bottom two are. So it's a public vote it goes to the public and there's the judges have no say they have no power in only in saving us in the Dow is like you would save somebody in the lip sync for your life. The judges save the person they think. Did the better dance off. Okay that's how that works. Show show the public votes on who they like the most and the people who got the least votes GonNa buy it off and then we watch them dance. That's it off. And then those judges on the stage say you know what we're going to save XYZ. I see yes I see and say on this dance alone. not the other dances. I did in the competition on this dance alone. We're going to save Blah Blah Blah. Yeah yeah all right so. Let's talk about Vogue Gate. The Gate Vogue Vogue Holgate what happened. I thought it was fantastic because it was and I thought that I saw some of the tweets where Eric you had to defend vogue ing as a form of Damn because people were trying to say. It wasn't dancing that I was saying that the public that don't know what voting is so here. Here's here's our thought process. There's probably these are probably the same people who voted for brexit orange. Yeah yeah the thought process was this. We had a dance coming coming up called couples choice and it happened to be a black pool. Getting to Blackpool's a big deal right So we thought couples choices. The categories are at theater jazz. Yes he did. It last year was hit the puck with his partner. I didn't want to do a Fossey number because I knew that Emma and Anton just did that and the other category was street dance so we could have done like a hip hop number. Whatever I said we should vote because a it's never been done be? It's still street dancing See it's for my community and D.. It's doing something on strictly. That's never been done. We want to move mountains. Only WANNA progress. We gotta take big risks and Gio is here for it. He was so oh excited the the we had a choreographer he was so excited everybody was like this. Dance is four tenths. This is going to be the first four tens and I thought we should should do the tribute to we should do them down shirt in one thousand nine hundred video music awards probably the best version ever done and back in that day for kids. Who Don't know we didn't have view to we didn't have phones and computer so when Madonna did that our minds were both our minds? Were blown because we didn't know what we were seeing. Yeah when when she came out dressed like Marie-antoinette we were like what the fuck is happening so everybody was on board and then we did it. And we got four eighths which is still great but the the fact that there was no conversation about how huge this moment was from. The two gay judges kept kept me a little. Like Um yeah this is this is really weird and Gio kind of looked at me and I was like. Oh we're going home tonight like it hit me because in my opinion nobody understood it right and on the judging panel If you think that was just walking you didn't see what we did. Then you weren't getting Detroit. What this was so the point was moot but there there was no way they were gonna even see us in the dance off telling me to do? This sharper is really not what this is right right right. This is about you not understanding what this dance is what it means and what it should be. I had the greatest vogue irs told me that was amazing. I had Caesar told me that was unreal dean. My choreographer was like that was fucking phenomenal. The people that the community heard it loved it. And we're we're blown away by it but that was how we went home so the way I see it is they just didn't get how to judge and did you go home that very night. Nine and go home home but I was. I mean that was. Yeah that was it. That was our swan song. Then we came back to do the finale. Okay so you you found yourself in the bottom two and you had to do it again yet and who did you do it up against saffron and AJ who did quickstep. How are you gonNA put a vogue back up against an in frame dance? The quickstep like I did the Liza Minnelli dance. Yeah that's the quickstep where you're running. It could have been the worst quickstep. Never I'm not saying it was does right and they still would have won against us because there was no way that they would have let vogue overtaken quick. Stop on strictly come down. This sounds like the plot to the movie Strictly ballroom to an. I'd love to star in it. Yes I mean it really does because the later years later the whole the whole point the whole freaking premise of him doing something outside of the box and Guinea punished for it and getting punished for. That's exactly what happened to us as we we got punishment and I didn't feel bad for me because I felt really strongly about what I did. I felt proud of it. I loved it. I felt worse for Gio because he kind of came along on the ride so down for it and so into it and I felt I felt like we could have. We had a chance to get to the final on this show and I feel like Oh God did I fuck that up for us but oh you can't go back. I stand by what I did and listen. I would do it in this country doing any country. I felt really proud of that and ice ice. That thing I said to the judges was we did this because I proved that I can do Latin. I proved casual room. Yeah we wanted to do something to shake it up. Yeah and I'm sure. Nobody will ever vogue again but we made a point and we made a statement. I'm telling you there. And just salsa no. It's it's unfortunate that that wasn't recognized used as it is you know I feel like it was way more small minded than they are because they're not small minded people and they love dance and they love the world of dance I mean Johannes I did it in the big dance number with him in heels in a fan and everybody went insane and then we do it as a dance not a pro dancer but as a competitor competitive number and nobody sees that and it's not that it wasn't as good it's just we competed with it so it was. It was different. The pros did it in a number. I see right right right so how how many weeks were left when you left the competition the four okay for I was so close MHM The next dance. We were going to do with tango and then we would have had the semi final with two dances which would have been waltz in Charleston And then we would have gotten to hopefully relate to find out. Have you spoken with Geo since we text. I haven't seen him because the holidays he went home to Sicily and then went away. But I'll be. I'll see see him when I go back I keep going. Can We dance please. He Literally Says No. Why has he dances all the time? Last he wants to do is give me a lesson right so so I find somebody else. Wow it's an interesting thing. How long is this show? But on the air this season sixteen or seventeen and it is but they do two seasons zero one a year. It's so huge. It is so huge to them. I said why do you not you sixteen season yeah. I'll tell you why this is what I think because it's a public vote and UK watches television very differently. The biggest shows are on in the wintertime. Because everybody's in because it's cold and this show leads up to Christmas time. It's a a big deal. It leads up to Christmas time than they do a Christmas special on Christmas Day. The end if you did an all-star so it had to be over the summer and like I don't know if glowing going going to blackpool would be part of it. It wouldn't give anybody like I feel like this leads up to Christmas. Yeah there's an end point..
