"Hey up a chair. Tax on tap with. David axelrod robert gibbs and mike murphy added evacuated. Thousands of people from kumble is going to be hard and painful no matter when it started when we began would have been true if we had started a month ago or a month from now. There is no way to evacuate this. Many people without pain and loss heartbreaking images. You see on television. So robert gibbs that was the president of the united states on his third or fourth Effort to explain what was going on in in afghanistan Good to see you. I wanna say to everybody including our buddy bill kristol. Who's standing by here. I had a little oral surgery this week. I'm hopped up on painkillers. I'm offering that as a disclaimer. For anything i say during this During this podcast but it strikes me you guys that there are a lot of people in washington. Who would like painkillers right now. There's been a terrible week. It you mean you're not just talking about your oral surgery. Now you're talking about writ large. Did you experiment large yet writ. Large i feel. I mean bill kristol. You're a veteran of the white house. whatever you think about what happened. I watched jake sullivan on sunday You know on some of the sunday shows. I barely recognize them You know. His eyes were sunken He was sallow. And it's very clear you know that. He is absorbed You know totally and trying to trying to navigate through all this. And i'm sure everybody there is doing the same. You know anyone who's been in the white house knows what that's like It's not it's it's a terrible terribly difficult feeling. Yeah it seems like they have pulled it together. A little bit of the last forty eight hours speaking what midday tuesday and i'm hopeful that we get a lot all the americans out obviously and then a lot of afghans and do so without you know it's going to be messy as the president said but without Disaster i'm worried about the deadline. August the thirty first of it wasn't my preferred policy but to be fair the president ran on it and do some bewildered why they didn't in the four-month since was fourteen that he announced it. It didn't organize better to think through. How do we get the civilians out. Not just the military at the afghans out. Not just the americans. How do we handle the possibility of army and the government falling apart faster than than we expected and so forth but Honest feels like this is the by demonstrations. They do this a fair amount. They don't do a great job on the first of a policy and they don't always get perfectly organized ahead of time on something but they do a b. They don't like criticism and As i've heard from people and you guys were snow here. This might have gotten involved and and see they. Do we act though. They do adjust i would say they don't stick their head in the senate. I don't think general and so some of the things you can't make up for unfortunately if if some afghan translator is not in coppell and is in hiding or is being persecuted by taliban as we speak. That's not something you can make up for of time. Maybe some of it couldn't be stopped anyway but they do adjust that i feel like the military's pretty good at this to once they see. Okay this is the situation. And i'm a little more hopeful than i was two or three days ago robert. That's that seems to be what they're banking on you know I saw ron claim Tweeted out the announcement. That thirty seven thousand people have been evacuated. Which is a substantial Number and you know david sanger said once someone in the administration told him you know we're we're we're going to be judged by what happens to the next two weeks not the last two weeks and That's you know. I think that's that's their beyond the obvious moral and strategic obligation to to to pull this off. I think as a political matter. They think that that that they can get some redemption if they get it right. I'm not entirely sure they're right on on how this is going to be judged generally the the i will note. I don't think we'll know the final grade for quite some time But i you know. I grew bill. I think credit where credit is due. I think that number now is even even north of the number you gave axe. I think we're about fifty thousand people evacuated. And i think they've done it in an extraordinary amount of time but also to bill's point on the organization of this. Now you're beginning to see stories of you know over welcomed in in in cutter having to absorb all of these Evacuees and to some degree Afghan refugees and one had to wonder if you knew. This was coming to bill's point You wouldn't have been overwhelmed at the place where you needed to put the people because you would have known how many people you needed to get out when you needed to get out. So i still think there's some real troubling questions around the evacuation of this and if you look at the nbc news. Poll twenty five percent of the public had confidence or supported his handling and afghanistan. Now i don't i don't i don't quibble about whether twenty five is good and fan fairness plus or minus four so to your point exit could be as high as twenty nine percent of the people but no mean i look i think to me. The the politics of this particularly in in its impact of of biden is not going to be on whether or not it's popular to leave afghanistan. I still think it it. It is yeah. I think people can before leaving afghanistan Feel badly or disapprove of how we're leaving. I still think the danger to him as we've talked about before is their series of traits. He ran on to be president right. He was going to provide calmness. Not chaos right. That empathy was going to be an empathetic president. I think we all agree that he has been in. Probably at the core of it that there was a level of both foreign policy expertise and competence that would be infused again into the oval office. And i think that's to me the real danger for the biden team right now in the short term is the hit that it takes on that. I think if you look at approval ratings over the weekend and the public polling afghanistan is weighing heavily on added covert and other things that i know. Get to I think it's the values and traits that that joe biden wants to be of as bitter the real potential challenges right now on this august thirty first date a bill. I don't exactly understand arrived there. Maybe maybe you do. But deadlines seem very treacherous here and now. He's he's been a vice today because our european allies were strongly supportive of extending the deadline. Apparently the president set Sent bill burns the cia director. Who's a really tremendous diplomat To talk to the leader of the taliban in kabul yesterday presumably to see about extending that deadline and I you know judging from the fact that the president now says we're going to stick to the deadline that meeting didn't go particularly Well so now you know. This is quite a task. They're they've taken on here to try. And in the remaining days of august Get everyone out Including people who are not in kabul and they need to get out of the country. It's i. I don't exactly understand why they set up that tests. And maybe it's to get out before the nine eleven anniversary. I don't know but They could they could come to regret that. I've got to think he's also we'll slide that deadline when it really comes to it because look the most important thing obviously both moral and political humanitarian strategic. Point of view is how it actually comes out not just in a week or a month or two or six or twelve and if to the degree that we look if because of a truly arbitrary deadline what is august thirty. I have to do with anything. It was originally going to be september. Eleventh suggestion suddenly Which biden seemed to think was a good idea to make it on the twentieth anniversary of nine. Eleven which i do. Snakes shows a certain he's deeply believed in this..

"Just doesn't aside. I was talking to a former member of republican member of congress. The other day and i was ruing. The prospect of kevin mccarthy is speaker of the house because republicans have a good chance of winning the house. next time. this guy said he's never going to be speaker of the house. And i said why and he said because trump will screw them in the end like trump always does that. Trump will that the george w bush dagger between the shoulder example. He used said. Look what happened to george p went there and he he Kiss the ring and Humiliated himself trump's. Thank you very much santa on his way and then knifed him in the back on the way out the door. Yes the old story. The the general comes up and says you know leader stalin. Your your hair looks fantastic day. Oh thank you very much. Shoot the guy in his whole family. what happened. I don't like talk about my hair dangerous. So the guy at a true story murphy. There Well i if i say it's true than styles. Relatives will kill me. But i'll tell you. I was at the and you can look this up and mike murphy. Commentary dot com. I with styling museum twenty years ago and had a picture of all the young revolutionaries and they do the old tour with the lady and the you know the cardboard closed this is silent with many young revolutionaries loved him as a leader. And there's one guy of wolf is staring at you. It's the creepiest thing. The whole museum is the greatest thing. This tracy yeah. It's georgia is so you can. Actually i have a picture myself sitting on his toilet in his armored train. That's a kind of fun stuff. I was doing when i was working in central europe but anyway to end this long story and i recommend the peace you either can hear the old russia national anthem as a soundtrack to it on the website. Sh they killed everybody in the photo over ten years. Oh my god nobody. He knew in. Like highschool revolutionary times. Live well it certainly would kill you for sitting on his toilet. Wants to kill me right now. By the way what note the other person who has the matching train car which was given as a loving gift dictator dictator by styling. Is kim jungles father. The original korean dictator had matching armored cars to terrorize the peasants. But anyway question for you below sea calls eupol and says it looks like it's going to be a longer war in this senate thing. Do i pass the infrastructure thing. Now to give biden more muscle to get the big spending fight done and give them a win. But i have to untangle myself or do i sit. There held hostage by this thing and try to pick off member by member. What do you think her strategy ought to be now. Because i think there's a real danger even if they get the reconciles things going to slow down and the stronger biden is the better. They're going to do in the spending pie. i think i nancy pelosi is the sixth speaker either. Worked with or against and she's by far the best. I actually think she might be the best speaker in american history. Certainly yeah and Sort of an under appreciated asset among democrats always look to the presidency and we we love our democratic presidents but not under appreciated if you've worked in the white house while she was pat her tell you that absolutely or while she wasn't. Yeah exactly right. God rest tom. Foley sold please. You people over fully any day of the week Right so so first. Off i just i i cannot tell you how much i love and admire her and how glad i am. She's air second. She knows just the raw politics set aside the policy. Here's what the democrats have teed up. Well i look republicans actually write. It is highly likely republicans. Take the house. And here's why they have history on their side right. The the newly elected president loses seats every time for the last seventy five years except thirty four great depression after the new deal. Sixty two after weeks. Four weeks after the cuban missile crisis carry picked up a couple of seats and to nine eleven right. So thank you picked up. Say i think you you. You're short changing yourself. I think didn't you pick up seats in ninety eight ninety eight but that's not a newly elected president. Oh i see okay. The first midterm is just death. Good president obama was for president clinton. It was not for president bush because of nine eleven so the average is thirty. One seats that the party in the white house for newly elected president either party thirty one pelosi can lose five. She's down thirty. She just history so they have history they also of course have the mat making authority. They control far more maps in the republican party than the democrats do Because of their success in state legislative racist those are really powerful assets and then third in a lot of key states. they're passing voter suppression. What i believe. Voter suppression laws That are going to restrict the capacity for a black and brown and young voters to get in. In phot- these are three huge advantages structure republican democrats pretty much all they got against that is the president's popularity and economic strength so if i'm a democrat i should wake up every morning and say what can i do to make. Joe biden more popular. What can i do to make the economy stronger. Both of those accomplished by passing this bill today tomorrow as soon as possible. Those are the two things david you've been there. I've been there. I often great tension between the congressional wing of the party in the white house wing of the party and they don't always seem to understand that you know they're in this thing together. They hang together the hang separately app. Lutely pelosi gets that. But here's another argument That may be closer to their hearts. Which is this the quicker they pass this stuff and particularly infrastructure. Bill the quicker. They get to be cutting ribbons. Yes and announcing hola progress in their districts and So you know. I'm sure she will be selling that message to them as well. But there's going to be you know political success compounds so you can hit a home run. Hit a home run. That's rare you know. But a lot you know some of these Particularly of these progressive members are not professional politicians. Right there activists who became politicians and they want to exact as much as they can and they and because the republicans are likely to take over the house. There is a this is like the last helicopter out of saigon. You know everybody's grabbing for the skit right to try and get their priority on board so it's gonna be. It's gonna be tough sledding but it binds lucky pelosi is there If there's ever anyone who can land this it will be. It will be her. And i believe and i've said this before here. It's going to be her final act as speaker. Because i think if she gets his package through. It's not a unlikely that she will move on and take an appointment from From the president may be ambassador to the vatican Which would be great capstone to her career but she is the person who can get the so guys while we were hammering newsflash here. We don't need you. Don't need regular news media. You can just listen to us hours from now. We're just going to hang around with you.

I should add for editorial integrity are will amex's even more interesting than we can get your so you guys carry the conversation. The headline is Cuomo sexually harassed current and former state employees creating a hostile work environment for women in violation of state and federal law. According to the attorney general latisha james. So what does it mean for cuomo. Who's up for reelection next year. Well here's my question. David especially since you were for the thing that surprises me about all this is that it seems to have been a pattern of behavior for a long time and a lot of it. How did he is. How did he skate this for so long. I did not see that particular behavior. I mean he can be tough on people around him. There's no doubt about it. I didn't see that particular behavior then. And i don't know if his behavior changed you're right. It was over a long period of time. When i worked for him. He was running for attorney general in the state but also times have changed and so people are more willing to come forward. It takes a lot to come forward. The interesting thing is this report. Gibbs was something that cuomo asked for ryan he asked for it because he was under siege ended bought him some time. The question is now that it's here is to borrow a phrase is time up it is and i'll tell you your question about how affect his reelection is moot. There won't be a re-election you think he won't even run give. I think he'll be impeached rather

"Hey up a chair. Attacks on tap with david. Axelrod robert gibbs and mike murphy added. We must know what happened here at the capitol. We must also know what happened every minute of that day in the white house every phone call every conversation every meeting leading up to during and after the attack honorable men and women have an obligation to step forward if those responsible are not held accountable and if congress does not act responsibly this will remain a cancer on our constitutional republic undermining the peaceful transfer of power at the heart of our democratic system. That was representative liz. Cheney of wyoming who oddly in the current republican conference remembers the oath. She took to the constitution at the january. Six committee hearings opened today. Acts how are you doing a big day in american history as we look at the painful events of january six to this committee. Now i'm doing well brother but I listen to some of that testimony this morning and it was a it was searing and it no more than two our destiny. Jackie coms who spent thirteen years up there. On capitol hill covering The hill for the wall street journal when the great scribes in that town now a A newly minted washington columnist for the la times and author of a pretty relevant book. Descent the radicalization of the republican party and it's captured the court about the cavanaugh. A confirmation but it's about a lot more than that jackie. Good to see you hanky. It's so great to be here. I walk with you guys almost night when i listened to your podcast. So it's really ought to be on with. You can see your feet moving here on zoom so exactly. You're falling into habits here but well has gym shoes. Ten thousand steps. Talk about your feelings as you heard. These officers testified because it brought back really vividly that day. I mean in through the eyes of people whose lives were very much on the line. You know when i was watching it in real time because i wasn't on the capitol grounds on january six. That was my virtual office for thirteen straight years and those cops like one hundred fifty of them. Squared off against more than nine thousand insurrection has and i just thought of the capitol policeman. I knew and talk to every single day at the doors including the ones for each of my pregnancies that bought me baby gifts at. I still have a raggedy ann. And andy that i was given for my oldest daughter and it's just it i i got i teared up this morning. Just as the officers did listen to describe their experiences. Harry done being called a fucking nigger. Am i allowed to say that under show here. You can in that context and Officer hodges describing seeing his colleagues hit with cattle prods. All things and you know not to mention flagpoles these alleged patriots hitting competitive party from the party of law enforcement hitting policemen with the flag holes of the united states. I mean could you not be affected by that and yet fifty percent of the country and seventy percent of one of our two major parties is not affected by. This does not believe that's really a question for us hacks which is What what should this but what does it mean but before we get there just on your point.

"It was door knocking or social media or earned media or phone calls or videos you have to figure out how people want to be communicated where an adjuster strategy so not a not a black and white situation. You know you're totally right. I'm a nerd. Built my first computer with assad during iron. I'm that old. But i always say a great sign of a bad campaign as at ninety percent of the talk is about the plumbing. Not the water. Because messages everything in their million coal ways to distribute it and some are more efficient and others stuff you can optimize but if a campaign is meeting all day about. Hey there's a new kind of digital sign that will read a license plate and target the car but the contents no good. It doesn't matter. I mean i remember asks weird some panel after two thousand eight and i said then and i believe now and i don't think you disagreed with me. You can now through believe so that barack obama would have won in two thousand eight without the internet because the message was superior and people found they get now the internet health. It was a huge amplifier. You guys did amazing things with it but we overestimate the tactical trickery as important as it is and forget about the core stuff probably. We needed the money that the internet produced for us in that campaign. It was it you know. It was a valuable thing at particularly at the beginning of it. It fed on itself and it became you know hugely important. But yeah the you're absolutely right. Message is is the key. An and jason understand You don't decide who to talk to Based on social media. Social media's tool that you use to talk to people there's data that's valuable valuable but there are other means of understanding who it is that you're trying to reach and should be reaching and what messages Resonate with them. So ty lets see for mike murphy. Do you think the gop can become the party of wisdom in the future instead of the party of reacting looking backwards. I hear a lot of comments. Even on the podcast. Wow about communism and unions and snowflakes. I don't know who he's talking about. But i rarely hear about a building a better future are you are hope and optimism principals only found on the left these days or do you see a way for the right to turn things around great question. You snowflake i actually don't throw the snowflake thing around maybe not enough. It's true i. I'm an old soviet area studies guy. I actually was in russia. Pre gorbachev i was there today. They announced andropov is the new leader in so. I can't resist peppering. The stuff with old comedy analogies as i like to say when the red star fits where it comrade axelrod. But i do that mostly for levity. You are right in your assertion. Dear correspondent that optimism winds campaigns most of the time you can run a grievance campaign has been very successful when you have a grievance country when people say things are very much on the wrong track and we've had a lot of that bernie was a grievance candidate of one flavor trump of course was the master cancerous grievous candidate but i hope the republican party does move back to a message of opportunity and growth and breaking down barriers. So people can succeed in the american dream no matter where they're from. I think that is our best winning hand. That is our best policy. And that's where we've got to get. It's going to be a battle. In the short term to get there. Because both parties have found the grievance weapon can work and it becomes self reinforcing in the electorate. But ultimately i prefer and why i'm so guarantee anti-trump and anti-populist knucklehead henry i prefer the reaganite message the jeb bush message of opportunity for everybody and optimism about america. So yeah that's the recipe. We gotta get back to it if we want to become a national governing party again. all right. Our final mega question from tyler for brother axelrod tyler writes. I'm a twenty something congressional staffer who works in the field for a moderate republican member but my ideological home is always been within the democratic party. Give me one sec tyler. We need to look into this and the internal charity. Yeah exactly trader in our midst tyler. Your fight for that moderate member. We need say about people three members you might be talking about but anyway go ahead. Yeah no exactly. We've just probably probably tyler if i were you. Change your name and go into hiding. But there's a question so he works for itchy. Really named tyler. Yeah actually ted cruz crafty. So anyway tyler's ideological home has always been. He writes within the democratic party. I hope to marry my political experience to campaigning for candidates that are more ideologically in line with my principles in other words abandoned the gop. What is the best way for me to go about. Pursuing campaigner political work on the democratic side of this midterm elections. I would say step one. Stop working for republican guys. How do you crack democratic world. Yeah it's an interesting. That is an interesting journey to make. But the truth of the matter is that there are a lot of Centre-left moderate Democratic members of the house remember two thousand eighteen. The the vast majority of those members came from swing districts And our Are are you know. More moderate in their approach a lot of them in suburban areas And they're going. Have you know there's going to be A lotta contests In these places this year. I mean the suburbs will continue to be a battleground where republicans will try and claw back and democrats will try and hold onto it They have and you know. I would just look at the roster of those races and And inquire of them how you might get involved. D triple c probably could help you put. They will ask you exactly. They're going to ask you about your journey. Tyler and You know what. But here's what i feel if a kid is working for republican member decides. That is not where he wants to be. I think that should be encouraged. I think that should be embraced. I think it's okay to have your first job. And then evolved the file your heart. The other thing. I'd tell you tyler is the smart dem's operatives will understand that somebody who has field experience with republican voters. Suburban can speak center. Republican is a useful tool for the democrats speaking. Aoc twenty four. Seven does not grow their pie. So you have some skills. I would end republican career before you try to start your democratic. Don't be too clever by half but follow your heart and stay in politics. Exactly cutter agrees do already so send your resume to both of them. Leave me alone traitor. I kid tyler. I'm staying in for. The fight is hopeless as becomes and stephanie. Let's wrap up by thanking you for improving hex on tap as you always do by guesting with us. Thank you for having me always coming on this and keep the campaign gone where we're all fauria. Hollywood we're we're going to organize. David knows a few people in chicago.

"Hey pull up a chair. Attacks on tap with david axelrod robert gibbs and mike murphy ask again. Donald trump with his despicable lies has lit a fire beneath republican state legislatures and they have launched most sweeping voter suppression efforts in at least in at least eighty years more than two hundred fifty bills and forty. Three states were introduced just between the months of january and february that would restrict the right to vote. So hey it's voting rights day in washington Gibbs and who better to decode all of this theater for us than the great. Amy walter from the cook report. I'm looking forward to the kotik. Yes welcome decoder. I brought my rain from cereal. Box the try to put that to work. So look i don't want i mean i think that this this this cascade of Of bills around the country based on and they are based on alive. Basically that the last election was somehow fraudulent and therefore we have to take draconian steps to try and stop this from happening again. That's not true but it's also true that this is kind of theater today. Isn't it amy right at this is this is not going to get sixty votes. We all know.

"And you get this deep polarity In our politics but well let's not forget to. I mean you know one rube. We progressives have a tendency to to to begin to focus on the downside and not the upside so to to jonathan's point. You know it's to be more. it will be. They're going to rephrase dickens. It'll be the it'll be the worst of times and oh there was some good things too well. And let's be clear the things you know when you talk about the child tax credit which you know wipes out half of childhood poverty in the country When you talk about child care Tax credits if they get those so essential to so many Families you know there are there. Are things in here that are landmark achievements if he can get them if he can get them done. You know jonathan. It's interesting usually acts of the one that makes fun of me for talking about policy. And then he interrupts to talk about china. I'm trying to make you feel comfortable bride. I'm just trying to make you. But i would say the layer of also bad news that that is going to be witnessed here is in these states like texas in these states Like georgia redistricting is coming as well right. The sense is going to be a bit late. But the challenge in opening up a place like texas and making it more progressive is going to be set back considerably because the people that are these laws are also about the redraw districts right and and it's going to certainly the both on the house side but then also on the state legislative side. It's going to be a long time before some of these states are truly an utterly competitive again even as we've marched towards making them more competitive so i think on the progressive side it could be There are going to be a decent number of of disappointments in defeats on that side of the ledger. Listen i think the the you know you look at polling about how younger voters view some of these issues. You look at the demographic trends of the country and long term you know that has to be encouraging to democrats the question. Is this decade this decade. Be you know these maps that are gonna come out are going to put reply i mean. Jr with everything even if biden accomplishes all the things we've talked about wouldn't you say republicans are in a better position to take over the house. Oh the house absolutely. I mean just because of a the small minority so small majority democrats app and because of what robert just mentioned which is a reapportionment is going to give them a slight advantage going into next. Look i think it's going to be difficult for for democrats. They keep the house Just on the kind of physics of the first midterm plus reapportionment alone. And but i'm also watching closely is. How many more retirements we see from house. Democrats who don't want to confront district don't want to confront difficult race and don't want to contemplate life in the minority. All three of which could be very real prospect is seen sherry boost does who was the chair. His congressional campaign committee who comes from a a very competitive district in western illinois announced her retirement. Okay then let's take a break right here and we'll be right back.

You couldn't add an right on-track otherwise you'd be at the limit I have no idea if that played any part in gos- dispirit thing but it's just something to consider that even for the king's like if they if if they couldn't pick up on waivers. I always a lot cheaper. But then they probably wouldn't wanna do that with gossip. I just have found fascinating. Thirty other teams past. It's interesting but not unheard of. I guess in in this caporal Any other things said before we head back to our conversation. Here with mike murphy.

I said okay and the time between the end of warm up which was long then it was like twenty five minutes and the start of the game was short relatively short so i didn't want to change. I left my gear on because the cat was going to say. Hey guys you know. Whatever whatever coaches say before a game. And i didn't wanna be disturbing them.

"Five year plan. You had that drive. Your plan has to change in turn our attention to us because of that flat cap environment and because were not in a playoff spot. In the king's perspective we had a little state of the franchise event with season ticket members. Recently i asked rob blake like does you know the trade deadline approaching regardless of whether we make the playoffs are your plans changing. And he said no but the kings have made some trades in recent days and like neither of them like michael montero. Michael going to the the ottawa senators. Christopher landon deaths defensemen coming back the other way and brennan lemieux The bottom six forward Coming this way from the new york rangers both of them to me. Strike me as minor deals. That aren't that it's not about today. There's there's something bigger. And i don't know what it is that there's there's another. There's another shoe to drop well with alex. I think it's you know when he first came into the league. He had some real good like you had a good start to his career. They dipped and i think the kings with michael emanuel. No we've dealt with michael right kid great guy but the depth that we've been talking about with the prospects has overtaken michael amato in the king system. They have players know jumping over him so and they're younger than the less expensive. And that's what you have to do with will add on. It's it's it's it's a it's a project for the kings. They're hoping that will an can get back to where he was a couple of years ago. And then you're at a point where you can consider having a part of your long term plan. If doesn't get back there it's just it's just you know a player for a player so yeah so it's it's kind of a in both cases you know you're taking a guy who you think has potential and you'll see what happens. I'm more curious. What only texts from friends about the la- muturi yeah lemieux's the new has more long term. You know he skates well enough. And he is a past. And he's physical. Do the kings have a player like that called. Grunge drum note could be physical on the fortunate. But so you're just trying to get pieces ingredients. I see more of a term thing. Willem you than i do with women unless will added recaptures something that has slipped and bottom line. I i don't see the kings making any deals for the purpose of getting them into the playoffs. This year any deal they make i believe would be contingent. Upon is the age of the player. They're acquiring going to be around in three to four to five years or being his priming three to four or five years when the king's field they'll be you know starting to enter a window again where they can be competitive and having settled that back to the cap. As far as i looked the other day the kings are in the best position right now of any team in the national hockey league with room under the cap so your position for when other teams are going to be struggling with flat cap. The kings are going to be able to sign a free agent forward. Sign a free agent defenceman. I'm talking big acquisitions..

"Well i mean lose well on his way there All right so one last thing before we before we dive back into our interview in mike murphy trade deadline coming up and there are a variety of different storylines. Righty ways i can take this. There's there's the news. Recently shorten quarantine with canada. Minor moves around the league. Let's start without though Do we think that this is going to on jam. The system seven days versus fourteen. It'll open up a little bit the canyon it will. I think there is a concern. That no teams. We're going to now. They can wait a little bit longer. Canadian teams again. If you're crossing the border issue I think open up a little bit That's to me. The biggest issue that teams are dealing with. Right now is not expansion. It's not the list. They're putting together. And by the way i think seattle is gonna make the same type of deals that vegas tip because that are making. Those deals are only trying to improve their own team. They don't care about seattle. Don't care if a team feels that they have to give you a player to keep a player that they want on their reserve less than you. They know you're going to take them and they have to sweeten the deal we're going to do. They don't care about seattle care about their own team but the biggest thing to me is the flat the flat cap i think really puts another factor into what you can do as far as straits. Yeah especially given that. It was an unexpected flat cap right if we were going into a environment for whatever reason. Let's say they were just a major economic downturn regardless of the pandemic and you could see it coming that oh we think you know probably the gaps going to be teams to plan around that the fact that it was sudden and teams plan out year. We're talking to rob blake like years in advance. They plan how they're going to manage salary cap and all of a sudden the environment changes teams have gotten creative. I'm surprised that some of them have been able to maneuver him as well as they have. But you know then becomes the question like is seattle going to get even more of a leg up than vegas had because they didn't have to deal with the flat cap environment at the time. I i've said it before. Alex with vegas. If you polled the thirty.

"And he's fine for that if the a are determined so just an interesting. Hey timpee all screwed up. Made a big mistake has been made many times before the mistake was got caught. That's his issue and the nhl do but they had to do And so does the punishment meet the crime. I think it would have been you know. It felt tempio was going to retire at the end of the season. Anyway right. that's the story we're getting. I'm not sure if he could have been brought back. Can you suspended official for something like that for a period of time and then bring him back. I don't know if that's possible so while that's that's part of it too. It's you know the even the perception of impropriety in the game. Each to be snuffed out immediately regardless of whether there was malcontent It's bits perception that rules the roost know again. I'll just followed up or just one five little bit. Something more No videotape a meeting with tim. Welcome in the officials. Release it or at least a transcript or something. How it's been you know. This is not to be done all the time. But maybe now is the time to do something or or even just press press conferences simple. Who's very sudden. Make good on the nhl for taking immediate action and avoiding the controversy of along or not even controversy but just the ongoing discussion of a long drawn out process investigation. What was wrong. What was right isn't going be brought back cetera. You know the it's it's probably unfair to appeal but That's the way it goes. The good thing. I will say in closing on. This is again going back to our interview with mike murphy. Referees have files on them. They make mistakes. It's flack Finnair well better luck next time guys. Everybody is being followed and everybody has their like. Every referee has a video file on them checked in toronto. And your playoff. Assignments were based on your report. Connor percent a hundred percent. So it's not as if the nhl has this pervasive problem. Officials are always looking things up now if if officials are either non calls that that are made were with bad calls that are made. They're getting flag both ways so i don't perceive their i don't perceive a problem right now in the nhl would officiating. I know a lot of fans disagree. But i don't see a problem. This this instance is not coming out of nowhere. It's been happening forever. Just finally now we have actual proof that it does exist to be continued on that front. I have a feeling all right so we are past the halfway point of the season. He trade deadline is approaching. I'll get there in a second One of the things. I've you know started to think about is our year end voting and we only get the vote on one awarded broadcasters. The jack adams award And there are some interesting candidates this year. And all the more. So because there's no cross divisional play or interconference play so judgment on. That awards gonna be fascinating. But it's you get the start thinking about the mvp and the you know the norris trophy best defense in the vezina for goal. He called her for rookie. And by the right nobody's winning. Other than perot caprice. Oh i think that's that's a shoo-in if you're going to talk about one award but You brought something up to media today. Jim about awards voting and right now. It's all their hockey writers right to do it. Is there something that i can get changed. It's not who to me more than than how and.

"A makeup call so he felt that something needed to be done that bay aired on earlier it interesting because the proof is there now because of the audio but also that he was telling his fellow official right. He knew he wasn't getting any pushback from his fellow official. He knew that otherwise he wouldn't have set a few thinks he's going to get pushback if he thinks she's going into territory that he's never gone before or the other officials never gone before he wouldn't even say what he said but he got caught saying it but to me again because he's telling a fellow official it just tells me that these guys are just trying to figure out things in a game that so difficulty officiate. Real time trying to sort it out there trying to get it right in the end but in doing so you have to make up things and make up meaning not on a thin air although this one was gonna say this is orelon. Make up because you're trying to cover up for a previous error. You feel you feel you meant or a previous area that was pointed out to you and you just wanted to make up for that. So that's the controversy to me. Not that it happens and the important thing to me is how the nhl handles it. Light to see still a little bit more transparency. Just a touch more. Maybe have steve welcome discuss it or bring us into meeting with the officials or release a transcript of the you know. Something's will never know but you know just a little bit more transparency where they can show us that they're they're addressing it. They know it happens. Wanna limit how many times it happens. So here's what's interesting to me and as you said jim. It's the admission part of it. That i was looking. I was looking for something. Mike murphy just a couple of weeks ago told us outright. And i think we're in agreement that referees. It is part of their charter. Fear told not to let it get out of hand and that doesn't necessarily mean. Oh you know if one team is taking all these other penalties you have to give a couple to the other team because sometimes powerplays are six to one. That just happened then. Your coach complain about it later to me. What's interesting here is the thought process that you do have to stop and i. I've always been curious as to why that's part of what we come.

"Live with the honor is referees. Mean players meet heirs. We we kind of accepted. So that's how. I kind of involved this job. Now as i said right now We'll have on on a normal evening when cove isn't around right now. We're very restrictive after six foot distance in and all the other criteria that you required have you under cold but normally on a busy night in the video. Twenty five or thirty people in there was loggers in ref ex-referees in it people in decision makers. So it's a. It's a busy room. And i look back and think there was two of us at one point three us and then you know that's how it grew and and that's how i kind of am where i am today. I'm not sure if everyone is familiar with it. We've been there before we visited to take a look at the situation room in the process and logistics. And all of that stuff. If you can break down two separate instances for me that would be the process when toronto initiates a review and then a process when the coach's challenge to initiate a review Vox you're talking about a video review and would stop being right. Because we don't know correct allerg- we will initiate a coach's challenge so we'll act. What both coaches in the last minute of play right in overtime and so anytime a puck is close to being offside stopped will bring the player the referees or the officials over and look at it whenever there's a play that's close at the net with possible goalie interference will get them to look at it and i'll be truthful with you unless it's agree. Gis we rarely will change. Call the ice. The officials can come over at any time and ask us to look at play shorter time. I've had visuals come over just too quiet. Seen now they know a Didn't win but it's close the net. There's lots of bodies flying around. There's lots of things happening. They'll come over just want to check in this way and in a sense i think it's the take a and say listen Get some clarity. Your for me. In will align the played for them. We'll say you know this month did not cross the line. You're good to go Make an announcement in we'll often dictate the announcement to its to take a little air out of the game at that point so that does happen not regularly but they have the right to go over any time we have the right and we'll do it will will ring them. We see a puck go in the last night in the ottawa. Vancouver game were puck was shot at bounced off the bat. The backwards went under the goalies. Pads could jump came in and poked in the puck went in the net so i called the referee overnight. Said he wants you to know that this pockets gone into the net which we usually do. The puck goes in the net. He says a clearly headed by whistleblowing. I saw go underneath his grads. Soccer took pope. We've got no goal. And that's so that's a situation where i brought him over but he could've come over and the same thing. I saw the buck internet. What happened played will. And i think from when we started were much more open in our discussions as to exactly what happened on clay. So that's the two situations box up video review which people get confused with the coach's challenge. If i see a kid rock and roll on. The coach can't challenge that strictly on us. Where coaches town where they it was goalie interference. Or possibly offside that's what it coach can stop this call. I think it's wrong..

"While the place still going on and then put the hand up or jeep. The hand down. You're just trying to ask the officials to take one extra. Beat to confirm what they think they saw. Of course again. When we go back to the san jose vegas Prevail led to a rule change. I got it right in. Inevitably they changed the rule book to get it right in a situation that mattered as much as it did then exactly understanding that no real time is not always the best time but but i think they have been instructed at times but once the playoffs start then i think you're going to get inside that point on and there is also. There's i think there's two parts to every when when when calling penalty numbers go down. I think it can be two things. Not only one. It's not only that. The officials are laying off the standard of be sat. It's also that players have learned how to adjust to the new standard. And they're not doing as much as what they used to. And that helps too so you get it both ways and the bottom line is i understand that officiating. In any sport is the most talked-about most controversial. It's on the tip of the tongue of everyone. That's watching it fans players coaches. I've joked about it many times on on the air where i know. There's at least two groups that don't know the rules. That is the players. The coaches they. Just don't sometimes but it's tough. It's interesting i watch a game when a team you cheer for or hate is not involved in the game. See how much you think about the officiating. But you don't think much about it. We had a great debate on a close call a couple days ago with the ottawa. Toronto ongoing or crystal. And you know it's again that that was kind of a letter of the law thing. A goal is taken off the board because there was a little bit of contact. We couldn't see maybe we didn't have every angle but But actually it's an interesting Window into how. The situation room works. And maybe it's a good segue now in our conversation with mike murphy. Who is vice president hockey operations for the national hockey league He essentially helped to run the situation room in toronto. In in some instances he is the final arbiter of a close call be a goalie interference or some other coaches challenge is right there with everybody else watching the games.

"That's pretty good as mentioned earlier this week. We've got mike murphy into we've got mike murphy on the show. We're going to talk a little bit. About how the situation room works. We've both been there. And i think the you know. The one thing i took away from our visit was going back to two and a half years now was how many angles they have. I mean when when you see a hockey broadcast home you know. We have the ability to cut the different cameras and replays and whatnot. And when we say that the situation room we'll take a look at every angle we mean every angle. It's pretty remarkable how they work And genuinely jim. And i know you wanted to get into this a little bit here. But how consistent they tend to be with their rulings I'd there are very few controversies anymore with regard to the situation room and maybe the only one left nowadays is the judgment call around goal. Tender interference now. Yeah you're right. Yeah that's probably the only one that has a little bit of gray area and they still know that. And they've admitted that they being the people in mike's department that oversees all that it's it's interesting to me that when they first went video review i was appointed having the mantra Pelley box today didn't have at the time. But i always a proponent of the official making the call himself and i was completely wrong completely wrong for for for two reasons number one reason. I didn't think of until after seeing about two or three and then everyone started talking about was what doesn't want to change his mind even if he sees evidence there you know there was always that you know as a conclusive or they don't want to be put in a position where now there. It's obvious that they made a mistake. And now they have to correct that mistake so a couple years after that or maybe even the following year they decided to make the situation room the decision.

Always a treat to visit with him in the situation room always a treat to to chat with him anytime about the sport. He'll be coming up in just a bit. But we've got a couple of other to get to first of all jim this week. What is on your mind as we begin this episode as we begin this episode. What is on. My mind is how the schedule is going to get compacted. Go along. and we're i think we're at that point or you know. I didn't think the kings would need days at the end of the season to finish up the schedule but due to our denver situation that the kingsdown themselves in So you know just and not even the kings. It's just gonna be everyone there is. There is going to be such an interesting. I found myself thinking ahead to the playoff races. As we get down to those last four five games and then is there going to beat additional game. Saint louis is the team. We were not able to play. Where are they going to be at the time. Are they going to fly to la to finish up the season all of those little things in the competitive balance and and the points and how important they are or are we in the midst of foreign six are they in the midst and four and seven. What's going so all those little settings. I know we're not going to be the only two teams going through that it's going to be a grind at the end but it's gonna be every single point sold for think of all the games the dallas needs to make up the only team right now that's extended their season beyond the the original. Stop date i. I just hope at this juncture as we tape this and going forward a few weeks that that game. That did not get played. Monday between the kings and the blues will get played because as of now it does matter. Those two are fighting for a playoff spot. I hope. I hope we're not in a situation where that game is irrelevant. Or it's so irrelevant because the kings will have clinched a playoff spot by ten points by then. So you know..

"If you look at a lot of these swing state polls is you look at them understand that the trump still is polling. Below the number he got twenty sixteen right he he's not pitching in to the support that he was getting in most of these polls. If not, all of them Joe Biden is polling ahead of where Hillary Clinton was. Right. A lot of these states are are states trump won that he's not leading in now. So I would say it's not a it's not as bad as you think it is. But B The pilot is almost certainly going to tell you buckle up your seat belt because. It's GonNa get closer. It's why we call them swing states or battleground states. So my my my thing on Florida's we get into this one quick thing in the last six presidential elections forty, five, million votes have been cast in Florida and the difference between Democrats and Republicans in that total of forty five million votes is a little more than eighty five, thousand death-ray Florida's Florida, I mean, it's GonNa be tight. It is going to be a very tight race all the way there. It's going to be a one point to point race. It's always has been, and if it's two points that's big in Florida, a Roberts set so. It doesn't surprise I. I agree with my thought I don't I kind of questioned the tide all in terms of the the strength of trump with Latinos over Biden air. I'm little asking that as well but even then you look at those numbers that finds doing much better with seniors than Hillary did in two thousand, sixteen in Florida I mean it's sort of offset the different race. It's not the same but it's going to be very tight.
