As saying if that were schumer instead of this dumb son of a you know what mitch mcconnell. They would never allow it to happen. They would've fought it for good measure. He at least one after mike pence again as well still with us. Claire mccaskill and michael steele michael. I'd like to begin with you. People have remarked at how much quieter. It's been with trump off social media. How he's starting to feel more irrelevant And though when you when you make a list of the courageous pushback republicans after kensinger and liz cheney you start to run out of names. Have you been surprised that courage hasn't been in greater supply even a couple of them. No not really because this is never been a national narrative for the gop. It's all always been very local and very personal. This is how you know. This is playing out at the state level Look at what's happening within state parties around the country look at races that You know for city city council being impacted by trump cannibis. Well similarly erases for chairman of the party and central committee are similarly impacted. And that's not lost on the elected leadership so their focus has never been on a more broader national narrative which a lot of the media and the the you know the other side. The opposition would focus on and turns democrats but for republicans. It's not surprising to see You know folks still gather down at mar-a-lago the rnc know shell out one hundred thousand dollars for you. Know whatever they ate and trump to get on act mannequin every run into the room to applaud because when they leave their they gotta go back to a place where the audience meaning. The voters like that clara for his trouble in savaging. The party's leadership. Donald trump was awarded a silver bowl. Actually quite a story here. It's from the national republican. senatorial committee. New york magazine puts it this way. There are several unusual things about this award. One is that there is no evidence. The nra c. Had any intention of giving it out before trump attacked. The party's leader. The second is that trump who adores award so much he sometimes in vance them with you. Michigan of the year did not even bother to put on a sport coat to receive this. The third is that the nra sc apparently plans to give it out every single year from now on the photo. Claire is downright uncomfortable. Senator scott who during happy times has the kind of smile where he could looks like he could name fifty places he could rather be. Trump is now the proud recipient of another silver ball. What do you make of this and the conundrum the party is in. Why it's it's something else i mean. First of all that's a measly little. i mean. that's not a big bowl. That's not a trump bowl. Secondly how ironic that. The republican senatorial campaign committee is giving him an award while they're while he's calling their leader a moron and saying that he's an idiot. I mean it is just unbelievable and nikki. haley. Today i mean. Here's the key haley. Who came out and did a little bit of what liz cheney did and and and considered dead and mitt romney did and even mitch mcconnell did right after january six and then she comes out today and says o no. I would never run if donald trump's running for president. No no i i would talk to him before i would never challenge him. I'd be for him. What is wrong with these people. Don't they realize fewer and fewer people are identifying as republicans at this point. I mean this. Their party is shrinking. And it's not gonna grow if they are all still carrying in the corner trying to please the liar hanging out at the golf course. Glad you mentioned nikki haley. We might just mentioned her name prior to going off the air tonight and with that our sincere thanks to former senator. Claire mccaskill former. Rnc chair michael steele. Thank you so much for staying up with us tonight. Coming up the cdc's.

I figured for sure there would be video of this because he calls Mitch McConnell, a dumb son of a If you know what I'm saying. That's awesome. Yes, I miss him so bad. Well, I've been three months. I was looking so bad for for the the audio of this. Um, this was during a speech to the GOP donors. And this is so funny how they go? Yeah. President Trump went off script at a Saturday that will really Wow, He never does that matter of fact I was entire presidency. There. He was hardly ever on script anyway. Um, he said Senate Majority leader while minority leader Mitch McConnell was a dumb son of a and he it was the keynote address invite only event. And several 100 GOP donors at his Mar a Lago resort. That's because he probably there was no phones allowed in if it's a private function like that. I? I bet it would They have anybody pick up a phone started filming, they would have been thrown out. Yeah, um, he was talking about he goes on to go. If that were Schumer instead of this dumb son of a Mitch McConnell. They would never allow it to happen. He was talking about the January six certification of the presidential election results. And he goes on to say that, um, he let's see. I hired his wife. Did he ever say thank you to me? No, he said he feels sorry for her. She suffered so greatly, Trump reportedly complained. And then he goes. I wanna I wish that Mike Pence had the courage to send it back to the Legislature's. I like him so much. I was so disappointed and this is what he was taught. You know, That's what he was saying about about Mike Pence. Um And then, he said he also went after Fauci during the speech, he said, Have you ever seen anybody so full of crap? And hey, said any news on his own plans to run in 2024 will come no earlier than the midterm elections. Uh, yeah. So he's gonna pry. You know what he's gonna do. He's gonna primary all the rhinos and all the establishment phony wannabe conservatives. All you know all these. You know the John case, it Republicans, the Mike DeWine, Republicans of the world. He's gonna primary them out of office in 2022. I think that's his goal. He's going to be everywhere. He's only crisscrossing the country and he's going to stand there with real conservatives. Real Patriots And and that's I do believe that's his plan in 2022. He's gonna have his hands all over that election. I can't wait. Man I can't either. Can't wait can come to Ohio and whoever is wines primary candidate It's I was having a conversation the other night with with a good buddy Friday night about this What do you think's gonna happen if Let's just pick a name on? This is not. He's not even declared, say, Jim Renee C says I'm doing it. I'm going after the wine in the primary. And there's a 10 15,000 person rallies somewhere. Uh, because they know Trump's coming. He's going to stand on that stage with Jim Renee. See in a minute Trump picks up that hand. Says. This is not your This is our guy. I think that's the end of Mike DeWine in Ohio. I do well, we won by 8% here. There's a lot of people that, you know, pull the lever for him, and I think they're going to go off of his recommendation. I really do. Renee. She's got a lot of money. Um, well enough anyway for this kind of a thing, too, So there's a lot of things going for him if, in fact he gets the president's endorsement. That Trump's endorsement is going to be the key to all GOP primary victories and next year. It's just no doubt it's a really good call, man. That is a really good call, and I hope I hope whoever does I hope it's a situation like that. I hope Trump. That's his plan. Anyway, I hope that I can't imagine there's nothing they can do in the key red states. I would think he could. He could do that. 100% brother, especially those razor thin you know where you got the Senate or the House members who don't they're on their wishy washy. And then somebody comes in to say no, I'm not wishy washy. I'm a trump conservative and then drum kits onstage with him. The wishy washy on the fence person. Goodbye, right, Kamila Harris put in charge of the border. This was Did you see New Gingrich talking about this? Yeah, Yeah, laugh it yourself because that's the kind of job you're doing. Put in charge of the border. He talked about how they knew she wouldn't do anything. And then he goes. So if it was your goal to have the maximum number of illegal people in the U. S. Who would you put in charge, which I think is what I'm like. Oh, that's brilliant. I mean, think about that. That is you Eun one in charge because we're sitting here going. It's been 20 days, 19 days. Whatever that without a news conference. Since, um she's in supposedly in charge of the border crisis. So you know, Newt goes on to talk about how if you look at history, the obvious is accurate, sometimes. They wanted her to be in charge of the border. They knew she wouldn't do anything. This is not a mistake. And this is why they refused to call it a crisis. They wanted to be open. And then he goes. This is the greatest point. Go back and look at the presidential primary debate. They're all in favor of open borders. Every one of them. They're all in favor of eliminating ice, and they're all in favor of eliminating any threat to sanctuary cities. I mean, Says exactly the way that they want it. And who was it? I think it was Louisiana Governor John Kennedy, who said if you want to fix this, you know, get go back to the way it back to December the way it was being done. And, you know, do that for a week and you start fixing this anyway, the next 10 or 15,000. People who come in are good and we talked about this. This increases the number of illegal immigrants in the United States. This is what they want These other people who will pull the lever for them, and that is why they're letting him just flow into this country. Unchecked right now or they they used to take. What did they say? An hour and a half to process them, and now it takes about 10 minutes and they give him some sort of a court date. And it's you really think they're going to come back for that? No, and they're not gonna go. No, no, no, no. So, yeah, the maximum number of illegal people in the United States. Of course it's working. Put her in charge because she doesn't give a flying flip about it, and all she does is sit around laughing at everything. Traffic.

Vice President Mike Pence by then, in a secure location, phoned acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller demanding answers. Pence pleaded with him to quote clear the capital.

US Senate confirms two more key Biden cabinet picks
"Day on the Hill, Marcia Fudge from Ohio representative confirmed as the housing and Urban Development secretary. You have Merrick Garland confirmed as the attorney general. I mean, ah lot going on. Over there. But then you have well. The question about Joe Biden. And how he's doing. They're supposed to be a press conference tomorrow with Joe Biden. I think when Joe Biden has given time and ample time to prepare, he can handle things. You know, I did say that in the debates, Joe Biden is gonna fall apart. He didn't fall apart. He wasn't great by any stretch, but he didn't fall apart. He seemed to have all his faculties. So maybe what it takes is a lot of prep to get him to be able to do the thing to build that level of memorization or whatever it is, it's going on to get him through it. And yes, I think that in a press conference, things were gonna be very, very tightly controlled. Wouldn't think that it would be otherwise. But more and more people want to push the idea that Kamila Harris might be in charge. After all, she's taking solo phone calls regarding foreign policy. And admittedly, Barack Obama never allowed Um Joe Biden to do that. He probably knew Joe Biden better than we do. And Mike Pence only did it a handful of times a couple times a year. Was he the one engaged in those conversations. So maybe it's just a difference of philosophy. Maybe it's indication of an issue. But the idea that it's maybe can't ask me to go down that that conspiratorial

That story in about 20 minutes. President Biden laid out a sweeping mission on Inauguration Day, declaring his gold to tackle the cascading crises afflicting America. He cited eroding faith in democracy and even in truth Growing inequity, systemic racism and the climate. The implication was that he would offer solutions or at least progress toe all of these crises. In reality, he'll have to pick his battles, and the choices he makes in the coming weeks will begin to set the terms of his legacy. More from Sean Zeller, editor at CQ Roll Call Shaun How do you see it? We've been living through a just a time where politics has become like Combat perpetual combat where the party's air after each other, where they have nothing nice to say about each other. So, although the outcome here was not what Democrats wanted I was struck by the tone of the whole proceeding, which struck me as quite somber and there were very few Republicans who were castigating the Democrats for like they were during Trump's first impeachment, you know, calling it a witch on calling and frivolous and ridiculous. For the most part, most of the Republican senators. Felt that Donald Trump had done something wrong here and they were. They were very sober about it, and we're not castigating the Democrats and vice versa. The Democrats were, I think, appealing to the jury jury, which included Republican senators and not trying to offend them by Saying that they were to blame for Donald Trump's behavior. Why was the tone different this time? I think Democrats really wanted to expand the number of Republicans who voted to convict they weren't they weren't expecting that they would get a conviction, which would require 67 votes and 17 Republican senators, but They wanted to get a number of Republican senators. And so you don't want to offend your jury and the tone of their argument. The House impeachment managers argument was Hey, we were the victims here. We were the people in the capital when the mob arrived, we were the ones fleeing from them and They praise. For example, Mike Pence the Republican Vice president Donald Trump's vice president, who they had pilloried for the last four years. They praised him for being there for overseeing the electoral vote count. Despite Donald Trump

It's up to twenty five percent now one out of four republicans saying they would take us as soon as it's possible right and so a real question is is vice president pence trying to expand that trend. Or is he trying to jump onto it. Because it's much more popular now than it was only a few weeks ago. why is it president trump. the one taking it. It's a really good question. We know president trump wants to get credit for the vaccine. So why isn't he the one getting the shot. Trump has said that he plans to take at some point but not immediately and we've seen this other conflict within the white house about when the entire white house staff should go ahead and get that vaccine. But just because you can doesn't mean that you should politically. Is it fair that you should jump ahead of other people in need. All of that will be off to the side and it will be vice president pence. Doing the messaging in this.

After talk. . Radio. . The rest is history I. . Want you to check this out. . Listen to this bike pads with your take on an adultery no longer a big deal in Indiana and in America. . And just love to know your thoughts because i. . I for one believe the seventh commandment contained in the Ten Commandments is still a big deal. . It's the most important promise you'll ever make. . And Holding people accountable to those promises and holding people accountable to respecting the promises that other people make a to me what what could possibly be a bigger deal than that in this country. . Yeah I know, , right. . It's a real irony considering who he's working under. . But let's talk about what talk radio did for him because. . It can do something similar to you. . podcasting can do something similar to you. . Talk Radio gave Mike, , Pence a voice it got him in front of people. . By the way it's been a while since done talk radio he did it from nineteen, , ninety, , four to nineteen, , ninety nine. . He started on a single station, but , eventually was on dozens of stations. . Once, , he had that big audience and people knew he was not only who Mike Pence, , who is Mike Pence, , what he felt about issues such as that clip that I played for just a second ago. . That is when he started to win elections I think the underlying element of that that's something that you have with your podcast is that radio gave him a perceived authority We don't think of our podcast is having that kind of influence or perception to people because we watched the sausage get made but a podcast is the same way because we watched the sausage get made we know what it takes to make a podcast. . However to most people they're listening to you the same way listen to radio they're listening via their phones they're listening in their cars via Amazon. . You may call it. . Alexa. . To the people who are listening. . It is radio and people trust what they hear on the radio. . They also trust what the your own podcast not as much. . But if you sound good if you know how to speak if you're clear in your message, , maybe like me, , you've got a little compression on your voice they don't think about hearing. . You not out of a broadcast tower they think is this guy clear? ? Is the sound compressed and does it sound great? ? Is it edited well is he speaking to something that I can agree with because let's face it when you're talking about right wing talk radio. . Now, a , lot of left-wing people listen to that you are preaching to the choir your podcast is no different. . Your podcast is something that people are searching out. . A say that I'm into biking I'M GONNA search for a podcast on biking. . A person who's not in the biking one going to search for it. . If they somehow find you, , they're not interested in the topic. . So they're not going to listen to you podcasts are self selecting as far as your audience. . Let's take it back to Mike Pence he just had a big debate. . He was on the biggest platform that he has ever been on in front of fifty million people at one time. . Radio. . Is What helped him to organize his thoughts? ? It helped him to vamp when he needed to. . Let me explain van because you don't know what that is. . It's a music term. . You may have seen it done if you've got a live show. . Dum Dum dum dum, , did you do in the band will continue doing it for maybe a long extended period of time maybe the singer is introducing something or telling his story and the band behind him. . Doon Doon Doon Doon to do or maybe there's a break in the middle where the singer is getting the crowd fired up. . Let's see some lighters out there. . That's vamp and vamp is also something that we do in radio or podcasting. . That's when you take a topic and you go on and on and on about it. . As long as you need to, , we definitely saw that in the recent vice presidential debate. . Pence took some topics. . And he went on and saying the same thing over and over again until he was cut off. . We also hijacking. . We take control of a question that your ass. . The moderator would ask him a question. . He didn't care. . He didn't even bother. . Talk about whatever you wanted to. . You wouldn't even slip about it, , and maybe that's because he hasn't been on radio for twenty years. .

"This could be more effective. But the fact that you then have politics brought into the fact, the president trump talking about it as a breakthrough, and then there's a backlash to that, and then there's a concern that the FDA isn't listening to. The scientists but instead as listening to the president that it takes a process that is supposed to be kind of complicated and supposed to be kind of nuanced and that it throws it into the extreme it either it is like what the president is saying it isn't and the fact that it's more complicated than that is a hard message to convey in this kind of political environment. Nuance has been impossible during the pandemic on many levels I would say. A big worry of people is that in the FDA's authorization, it says what is needed is more. Of the older kind of like rigorous clinical trials that people who are critical of the decision have been calling for. But one of the problems is that. The president and his advisors have gone. To a press conference saying that this is such a remarkably effective treatment and really celebrated it and it's really hard for me to understand why anyone? Who is sick with in the or has a relative in the hospital would wanNA volunteer for a clinical trial where they have a chance of not getting the plasma. If they've heard these messages that it's just this. Wonderful. Barry, effective life saving measure. We saw that with Hydrochloric Quinn where the president talked about how well it works trials were on going but many institutions did not actually launch trials that randomize people because. Patients don't WanNA. Take a placebo and so. The fact that there's been all of this this attention to this treatment. That saying that it works is really going to endanger our ability to ever know if it works and that was already true but it's far far more true now that we have had. The president and his highest level of health officials. Kind of say how effective it is. It's true. They're also calling for more trials but hat, why would that be persuasive to to someone with a desperately ill family member WHO's trying to decide what what treatment.
"mike pence" Discussed on Post Reports
"So, the FDA thinks that this works rate like how effective do they think that this treatment is? That's where it's complicated So the kind of authorization FDA gave is a pretty low bar of evidence. Basically, it's for stuff that is safe and appears that it may be effective. That's a way lower standard than regular approval like when you think of a drug getting like the stamp of approval from a an FDA, like kind of decision. So they do that there suggestive evidence that it could work. And where it's all gotten messy is how firmly people think you can draw that conclusion and whether it was overstated during the press event over the weekend well, before we get into how the results were talked about, let's just talk about the results themselves like what kinds of trials or tests have been have been done so far with this type of treatment and what does the data from those tests say There haven't really been any of the kind of gold standard of evidence in support of this that scientists look for. So when you hear about getting approved, it's almost always because one or more large trials compared the performance of that drug against a placebo like a dummy shot dummy pill, whatever you know if it's a vaccine or a drug so it's like the best tool we. have of kind of understanding whether a drug really works in the case of convalescent plasma. What happened instead is that in the early days of the pandemic, when doctors had nothing a grassroots kind of movement of physicians came together to try and make this available to patients because there is a good rationale for why it would work. There's a history of using against influenza or measles. Other diseases. So there was kind of a hope that it would work but not the kind of clear gold standard evidence that you would want. So they were successful in making it widely available so more than. Seventy thousand people have received plasma. Really that's a lot. Yes. What they do know from that is that it's pretty safe. They didn't have a lot of adverse events that they attributed to the treatment and then they just kind of tried to look for patterns in the data. So if you don't have trial, you laid out in advance you know half of them, get this half get them get that then we see. How the two groups did one way of kind of it's really just a way of generating hypotheses usually is to go back and look at trends be. Looking at if people who ended up getting higher doses of antibodies in the plasma did better than those with lower doses of antibodies and they found a mortality to France there it was like a thirty five percent of rinse mortality. But that is a kind of an exploratory number like most people wouldn't say. That you can extrapolate from that to say x number of lives are saved from from this because president trump has basically been talking about the street like it could be some kind of breakthrough and clearly there are members of the administration that are very excited about it but it sounds like what scientists are gleaning from these numbers so far is much more moderated that it might not be a breakthrough, but it also isn't completely pointless that it somewhere in between yes I think people have a variety of different view obviously even people who are very interested in using this as a tool not a it's. Obviously, not a cure or anything like that, and it's promising but it it's just a an important tool potentially, and that still also does remain to be proven with a better trial even those who who want to use it. Another thing that is a little bit misleading about calling it a game changer or breakthrough is that it was already pretty widely available in the US. So when I talked to a person who works with blood banks, they were saying this will make it a little easier potentially at some hospitals could diminish some of the paperwork burden, but it didn't seem to me from talking to people. That they they imagine. This really. Totally shifting access to this so it may not appear like such a change. You know it was more symbolic for it in many ways to get this authorization and people were pleased about that. It was very divisive in the scientific community I. Think what a lot of people got upset about was the way it was described as a bit over the top and a bit over the evidence of of what we have. But I think that there they're also been concerned about the way that this decision from the FDA was rolled out because they basically made this. Announcement about granting emergency authorization for this plasma treatment they they did that the day after president trump was complaining on twitter about the FDA standing in the way of potential treatments and cures, and so it seems like at least from the timing of it that the FDA might not have been doing this because the scientific evidence was so compelling but more because the president was complaining about them and they were doing this for the benefit of the president. Yes. We are indefinitely a kind of a complicated situation. I mean the thing about plasma that is kind of. That makes us even more. Complicated is that there had been rumors for weeks or even months that the FDA was about to authorize plasma it's been something that many people thought would happen in part because the expanded access per room had just gotten so big, it was never really intended to function the way it had at the scale it was. So there was an assumption that they were going to do something to change that, but you know I. Have heard from many scientists that like emergency authorization is a lower standard of evidence than an approval and there are people who think we've really met that standard and that this whole like theater all the his dairy over the politics of it has just been toxic in a different way. It's it's not really about plasma. It's about yeah. All kinds of confusing messaging from the white. House will then I think what you're saying about the insertion of politics into this process really gets to the heart of this because as you said, science is complicated and it's not actually that surprising that there is a potential treatment that is being considered that some people that some scientists are saying are could be more effective. Some scientists are more reticent, but that is part of the. Scientific process is trying to Suss that out and tried to get more evidence and figure out exactly what the deal is or how something like.

"For months. Now, there have been rumors in Washington and throughout trump world that pence could be replaced on the ticket by Nikki Haley the former United Nations ambassador or even by South Dakota Governor Christie gnome. But this is pence's moment. It's pence's spot on ticket and his speech in Baltimore is going to affirm that he is demand. He's the number two and he and trump are going to be on the ballot together in November. And I think it's notable when you look at the people around the president and the people who have been there and who had left in the last four years, you could probably describe it as a revolving door but it does seem like vice president pence is this one constant who's managed to be there through it all he has been the constant through it all and and the one thing that he's been unwavering in is his loyalty to president trump he of course, 'cause it loyalty others college. Sycophancy or you know his subservience to the president but because he's been so consistently at the president's side parroting with the president wants said defending the president through any number of crises he has earned trust and he's earned that position in a White House where people tend to rise and fall and come and go with frequency, and what are the strategies that the vice president employees in order to do that like what have you heard about the ways in which he is able to demonstrate that loyalty? You know he demonstrates it in all sorts of ways publicly that we see he will oftentimes credit president trump with difficult decisions that may not necessarily been the president's himself. He often will say you know I, did X Y and Z at the president's direction. And it's become something of a running joke among pence's critics last week at the president's direction this week, the president's direction will be at the president's direction active duty the American. People know At President is, direction. I you know pence really means it and is Ernest. When he it and you know he feels like he is serving the president and Mrs Dash kind of role that the president wants him to play as the loyal number two but it also plays out privately. For example, you know pence's reluctant to make any sort of public statement or even private statement in closed door meetings at the White House until he knows exactly where the president is going to land on any given issue, he doesn't want to get into a situation where he takes a position that's crosswise with that of the president or he gets out ahead of the president on any sort of news events. So is it does that mean that that pence is essentially like the ultimate? Yes. Man that he doesn't really push back on the president and try to. Correct or. Improve decisions. You know as far as we can tell publicly Mike pence absolutely. The ultimate. Yes. Man I know I speak on behalf of the entire cabinet. Of millions of Americans, when I say congratulations and thank you. Thank you for seeing. Through the course of this year. An agenda that the truly is restoring. country. However, Pence's advisers insist that the vice president will sometimes challenge the president in private or offer council in private one on one and may not always agree with what the president is doing. But he never lets on a publicly that there's any disagreement or any space between the two of them pences priority as vice president has been to be on the same page as president trump no matter the issue no matter the day. No matter the crisis. And probably, one of the most high-profile roles for pence. Has Been His time as the head of the White House Corona Virus Task Force I'm going to be putting vice president, Mike Pence, and charge. We're doing really well, and Mike is going to be in Georgia and Michael Report back to me. But he's got a certain talent for this and how has he navigated that and what does it say about pence that he is in that job you know as soon as the coronavirus became a pandemic and the White House realize the magnitude of this health. Emergency. Vice President Pence was named chair the Task Force, and you know in a way it's sort of a a no win situation for pence because of the magnitude of the crisis because it looked like it would be virtually impossible to do this job perfectly. Pens took it on the White House Corona. Task Force are all reflective urgency that the president has brought to a whole of government. Approach and he led those corona virus meetings for the first several months of the administration. He helped convene not only the public health officials in the scientists in federal government but also the governors in various outside stakeholders and state leaders as a former governor I know full well. The vital role of partnerships of state and local governments and health authorities in responding to potential threat. Of Dangerous Infectious Diseases to do sort of that nitty gritty staff level work that the president frankly had no interest in doing himself and what do you say that he's been successful in that job? You know it. It's not necessarily for us to say whether he's been a success or failure, but I'll point out a couple of things the US government and the trump administration particular does not have control over the virus does not have control over this crisis and so if pences objective as chair of the coronavirus task force was to get control over the virus to slow the spread to prevent it from from killing more lives to prevent it from disrupting our economy and and day-today life around the country. Then he has clearly failed because we the US does not have that sort of control but when talking the pence's defenders his staff. They think he's done an admirable job. They think this crisis was far beyond anything anybody. Could have reasonably been able to contain quickly and consist on the best he could. I think it's interesting to think about vice president pence in the context of of Kamala, Harris and her nomination as a potential democratic replacement for him. It's almost the opposite with Vice President Pence that what has made him. So successful is his his refusal to step a tow out from the shadow of president trump yeah. You know I think that's right. I think pimps has been so careful not to shine brightly as a star. So careful not to raise his profile for example, he doesn't like participating in stories like the one that actually Josh and I did because. He doesn't want to get fame. He doesn't want to get attention that could could get him crosswise with President trump who of course has famously lashed out at aides who he believes steal too much of the spotlight you know in that regard pence's different than Kamala Harris Kamala Harris he had sort of an electric presentation as a politician and vice president. Biden seems very comfortable with having Harrison spotlight and was showcasing her sort of charisma and talent and abilities. So then what do you think is pence's endgame here like do you think that he aspires to be the president? Absolutely, you know pence presents this very sort of humble modest image and makes you think that all he cares about is serving Donald J trump from dawn to dusk and beneath that veneer however, there's this. Ambition that he has and not just Mike Mike Pence but his wife Karen Pence, the second lady they both share this political ambition.
"mike pence" Discussed on What A Day
"On today's show Congress finally passes a bill to make lynching a federal hate crime in some headlines. But I the president's plan for Corona virus. Yesterday fresh off his trip to India President Donald Trump had a press conference in conjunction with the CDC to update the nation on the Cova Nineteen Corona Virus Preparedness Plan. The United States currently has sixty one reported cases mostly stemming from the diamond princess cruise ship forty two infected passengers were repatriated there. The other cases are also travel related with the exception of one new case confirmed on Wednesday in northern California of unknown origin Info on that is still forthcoming in China. New cases have decreased in the past several days but in Italy. The outbreak has surged in now. More than forty countries have confirmed cases of the virus. There are a lot of moving pieces with this. But what exactly did trump say in the press conference. He said a lot of things. He announced that Mike Pence would be in charge of the US's cove in nineteen response. We're going to get to that in a second but Mostly said the response has been amazing and played down the threat of the virus despite warnings from the. Cdc here's a clip. Cdc said yesterday that they believe it's inevitable that the virus will spread in the United States. And it's not a question of if but when do you agree with that assessment? It's inevitable probably will possibly will be at a very small level or could be at a larger level. What whatever happens. We're totally prepared. Totally is doing a lot of work here. But trump was optimistic about a vaccine coming to save the day. Soon we're rapidly developing a vaccine and they can speak to you. The professionals can speak to you about that The vaccine is coming along well and speaking to the doctors. We think this is something that we can develop fairly rapidly. Okay well the head of infectious diseases at the National Institutes of health. Care as it a little differently so although this is the fastest we've ever gone from a sequence of a virus to a trial it still would not be any applicable to the epidemic. Unless we really wait about a year to a year and a half a sounds a little like character but yeah well trump has fired off several tweets about the media stoking fear and anxiety but personally watching the president be clarified in real time by scientists especially ones that sound like Scorsese character. Made me a little bit more terrified anxious than anything. I've seen on TV. Oh yes I second bat. Okay but tell us more about the White House response? Okay Oh my God. Let's start with trump. Putting Vice President Mike Pence in charge of handling the epidemic citing Indiana's amazing healthcare and his response to the murders corona virus. That hit Indiana in two thousand fourteen. So as far as healthcare goes Indiana ranks thirty fourth in the nation or fifty states. There are fifty states and the murders. Outbreak wasn't much of an outbreak. One person one one fingers up Had the disease there. It didn't spread. The person didn't die and to date. Only two thousand four hundred ninety four people have ever been recorded to have the disease right now. More than eighty thousand people worldwide have grown of so perspective one good example of Mike Pence's approach to handling epidemic is the HIV outbreak in Scott County Indiana. So back in two thousand fifteen when he was the governor signed a bill criminalizing carrying syringes. Refuse to start clean needle program until more than ninety people have been infected with HIV and his answering. The meantime was prayer. Yeah prayers very very good so you know superpower decent charge well any who the administration has called for two point five billion dollars to combat the virus including proposal to finance it by shifting money from programs for the poor in re appropriating funds from the US Ebola response Ebola for the record is still an epidemic in the Congo but vaccine was announced last week. So you know. I guess everything's done here. Just move that money to go Senate dims have their own proposal. Senate Minority Leader Chuck. Schumer has called for an eight point. Five billion dollar emergency spending package. That doesn't take money from heating assistance. For those beneath the poverty line the money would be spent on medical equipment support for localities and medical research. Okay Yeah There have been cuts and personnel moves at critics are saying could weaken US preparedness. We've touched on this a little bit. But can you walk us through that a little bit more share so in two thousand eighteen? The White House eliminated a dedicated position on the National Security Council to Coordinate Pandemic Response Not Great Mockery and earlier this year. The trump administration announced further personnel cuts to the National Security Council according to former Obama administration staff who were involved in the two thousand fourteen buller response the NFC was the only power center. That could harness coordinate the many federal government agencies implicated foreign and domestic one former senior. Us official said quote for the first time since nine eleven. You don't have someone directly and immediately reporting to the president responsible. Twenty four seven for the major transnational threats. We FACE TERROR CYBER PANDEMICS. Yada Yada and then there's the president's proposed budget for next year it had three billion dollars in cuts global health programs and a sixteen percent cut to the. Cdc These cuts probably won't happen but all mass considered it would appear. Trump's priority hasn't been public health so far but the main takeaway from the press conference is that the CDC believes that public health measures are going to be far more useful in the coming months than promises of a vaccine so again. Wash your hands. Stay home if you're sick in maybe check. Cdc Dot Gov slash in nineteen every so often so you can stay vigilant put..

"We're listening to the interview fresh. Air's Dave Davies recorded it with veteran political writer Tom Bianco about the man who is in line to occupy the Oval Office. If president trump were to depart vice president Mike Pence though Bianco has a new book about pence career called piety and power when they left off there were talking about Pence's decision and twenty twelve to postpone his ambition addition to run for president and instead ran for Governor of Indiana. He barely wins the general election and takes office as governor in two thousand thirteen in his when he moves into the capital his wife. Karen has an office there and a phone that rings on his desk. What was her role in his administration and I guess in his political political career generally I used to think that there was a small circle of a of inner circle for Mike Pence. They consisted of three people. Mike Pence his longtime chief of Staff Bill Smith and and Karen Pants and that was my conception for years and in reporting this book I found out that there's it's even smaller the net it is only Karen Pence in Mike Pence in this inner circle. They're the ones who make decisions together. You know when the trump campaign was vetting pence. They had no problems picking him out. They had no problems getting information on him. Felt like I had a great a great sense of who could find anything bad about him really they could not find information about caring and I've to be honest with you as a reporter I understand why because it took me a long time to find out how she moves the needle. I'll give you two examples from from inside the State House number one was the expansion of Medicaid. She was she was very important. In pushing the idea that the infant mortality tally rate was too high and that they need to address that that was a big item for her that informs him on this decision the other one is starting a pre K. program in the state. you know a couple of state senators go to meet with him and these are conservative state senators very much in line with where he is they say Mike. We don't WanNA pay for this. Is You know there's no money in the budget. you know we just don't want to do that and he looks at me. Says you know guys look. Karen wants me to do it so I'm going to do it so so she often controlled access to him. It sounds like in terms of policy. She pushed him more into a more progressive direction spending money on social services in that instance yes absolutely yeah. I think that here's something I learned in this process. They are not the caricatures that are out there about them. Yes they are one hundred percent conservative and you know look at the one hundred percent oppose abortion and we'll do everything they can to repeal Roe v Wade. That's very clear but in terms of are they fiery Theo Kratz like Jerry Falwell type. I that's not right and I think there's a reason that you don't see them. Knocking it down. This goes to the politics of it. It helps them to have that caricature out there because it keeps that that politicized evangelical base with them and it keeps them from going someplace else like a Nikki Haley or some other political opponent so these caricatures are actually politically beneficial to them so in two thousand sixteen rolls around around Mike Pence Ken run for reelection as governor he would love to enter the presidential race but it's a strong presidential field decides he'll go ahead and and seek reelection as governor and then this prospect of joining the ticket with Donald Trump arises. Why why did the trump camp look to mike pence so they're having trouble getting moderate? Republicans rainy Republicans really to join the ticket by in the beginning of July. It's down to Chris Christie Newt Gingrich and Mike Pence Paul Manafort who is running the campaign pain in this moment and Ryan's Priebus who's taken on more of a role certainly as it became clear that trump would become the nominee are both arguing extensively for pence. It's in for two different reasons. They see Manafort sees a delegate uprising led by the by cruise new supporters ironically enough Cancun Nellie now the acting inhuman acting D H S Terry in the administration and and some others are trying to block the nomination of trumper deny deny the nomination on the floor in delegate battle in the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. previous sees a different reason for wanting him. He sees that pence can bring back your evangelical voters and let me point this out because this is really important. trump already has the support sort of televangelist. Jerry Falwell Junior for instance people who have already gone on board with trump so if the televangelist already support trump. Why do you need the Evangelical voters because because there's televangelist don't represent all of your at politicized evangelical vote. It's not a monolith they no previous news that pence in his different style L. of evangelicalism. It's more quiet mid western style can bring back these quiet midwestern voters and help boost the margins in the rust belt and places like Wisconsin and and Western Michigan so they won for different reasons the problem they face is trying to convince trump to sign up with this guy. Trump sees. He's a loser. That's how I've used them and and he doesn't he doesn't like thinks that he's weird with their religion trump's. Just he just doesn't like pence at all so it's it's. It's it's kind of vexing for them so there's an interesting moment here when it's coming down to the end and Donald Trump has has a just a few choices inform House Speaker Newt Gingrich Chris Christie the governor of New Jersey who very much wants to be on the ticket and then pants and end a weird thing happens the trump campaign wants to is gonNa make a a short stop in Indianapolis but the plane. It has a flat tire. Why does this end up mattering that flat tire ultimately changes history is it's in July twelfth two thousand sixteen they land pops a flat under the fuselage of the trump campaign claim it strands trump in Indianapolis apples in this moment one week before the nominating convention. Newt Gingrich has the upper hand based on my reporting Jared Kushner Kushner Ivanka trump are with gingrich in New York and trump tower. They like Gingrich. They like the way that he meshes with their father. They like that. He's a big ideas person. Christie has a good line directly in with trump but Kushner doesn't like Christie because Christie helped put his father in jail so oh there's a tense in the mix but he is not the top candidate in this moment with that flat tire does it basically relocates the entire campaign to for about forty eight hours to Indianapolis and it forces trump to seriously consider and spend time with with Mike Pence in a way that he hadn't before so they stay overnight in Indianapolis. They get up in the next morning. families have breakfast at the governor's mansion and what's important here. Is that jared. Ivanka have not met Mike Pence. This is their first time meeting them and they go downstairs after practice and the governor's mansion for a meeting in the bunker and it's family room. That's in the basement and Donald Trump is sitting across from Mike Pence and this is the brass tacks smell it and trump looks at him and he says Mike I need killers says why do you want this and he'd killers are you can be a killer and he holds up his phone in commits phone calls from Chris Christie's look Chris Christie. He's a killer and pence looks at him and he says I am not a killer. I can't be that look. I can help you govern. I can help you a lobby congress. I will help you with conservative voters. Evangelical Zelikow voters in the rust belt but I'm not a killer and if you WANNA killer you should find somebody else I will support you and whoever else that is in your effort to change America but I I don't need this and trump `ISMs gobsmacked and afterwards after this eighty eighty. It's the first time that trump series. Asli considers Mike Pence as a possible running mate and Mario to the IT meets with pence afterwards and he's just astounded. He's like Mike. That was incredible. Tom Lo Bianco is book is piety power. Mike Pence and the taking of the White House we will we'll continue our conversation in just a moment this is fresh air support for this.

"That's out there about him but he ah pushes this side in favor of things are a little more anodyne like like Fiscal Policy and you see pence make this change pence tries to live within the tea party but not get wrapped into some of the more social stuff he doesn't get wrapped into the birtherism for instance tries to keep it very tight on fiscal policy policy so by the time he is running for governor. He is running as somebody who's not a culture warrior. He served one term as governor of Indiana from Yep got elected in two thousand twelve to two thousand sixteen election and it's clear that he still had his eyes on the White House. He traveled abroad. He talked about national issues. he still had to run the state was he good at the statecraft of being a governor dealing with the legislature being on top of policy. No no he was a objectively. I can tell you that he is a terrible government majer. it's obscene other governors. I work in this is not a comment on his policy or as politics but just on his his handling of the building he was not dialed in with the lawmakers he did not have a sense of things and let me give you the best example of this which is he's so focused on running for president building out his National Network of donors that he doesn't see the religious freedom battle coming in twenty fifteen. He doesn't see how that could bite him and he has nothing to do with it Moore. This is the thing that the basically ends his career. In that moment in twenty fifteen in two thousand fifteen a group of legislators develop a piece of legislation. This is when gay marriage is becoming more accepted. They come up with this piece of legislation. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act which says that I guess no business person has to participate eight and a gay marriage. If it violates their religious beliefs doesn't get involved in drafting the legislation. How does he respond to this. The headwinds look fine for him. Politically in this moment he doesn't see the backlash that he saw the previous year with the same sex marriage a ban that they were trying to put into the constitution solution and he decides well. It looks safe. He sticks his head up out of the bunker. He says I'M GONNA sign. It and I'M GONNA take credit for it. which is something he often liked to do things? They didn't work gone classic politician right things he didn't work on. It was Reagan that said that you know success has a thousand fathers failures in orphan. So you're here we go. Here's one of the one thousand fathers for this and he pops up. It's the exact same time that the the Comic Con Convention is in Indianapolis and what what light this on fire and this is something that is incredible. It's a facebook post from Georgetown K. Mister Sulu he says and he I think he's out at this point. He says that he knows exactly what this law is that Mike Pence assigning because he saw it in the internment camps that his family lived in and he sees it now with the bigotry towards him and his and other lgbt residents this just catches on fire and and it becomes something that pence doesn't know he's never experienced before it becomes a viral moment online at catches on fire and just cashes them flatfooted because he he thought it was safe. He had no idea what he was getting into and this brings him into this fateful interview with George Stephanopoulos where he goes on air and he tries to defend this legislation that ironically enough he had nothing to do with creating he tries to take credit for it and he goes on there and he basically it sounds like he's supporting discrimination in Indiana and it just wrecks his career. That's the end of it after that like it's nobody's even talking about him running for president anymore or after that interview March thirtieth two thousand fifteen they're talking about whether he can survive a bid for reelection as governor. We're listening to the interview fresh. Air's Dave Dave Davies recorded yesterday with Tom Lo Bianco author of the new Book Piety and Power Mike Pence and the taking of the White House after a break. They'll talk about the conversation with trump that helps secure the vice presidential nomination for pence. Why pence's wife Karen was angry when the ticket won the election and and whether members of trump's family have been angling to bump pence.

"You're listening to Pat gray unleashed on demand. What grade is here on the please radio network. Every day. There's a cornucopia of stuff to get to where do you start? I guess we could start with the rumor that President Trump by dump Mike Pence at twenty twenty if he runs we really. Yeah. President pence. Vice president Pence was standing in the East Room of the White House after his boss put him on the spot smiled nodded. He never said the word. Yes, though the moment prompted by a reporter's question during a rowdy post-midterm press conference few weeks ago was an attempt by President Trump to quiet the speculation that he had begun to question. Pinson's loyalty and was mulling over potential running mates for twenty twenty. All right. He said, well, and you might remember this. I think we played it. Well, I haven't asked him yet. But I I hope so where are you? He said in reference to Pence Pence was sitting in the front row. Mike will you be? My rent 'em running running-mate stead at mic, please raise your right hand. Now. I'm only kidding. Will you? Thank you. Okay. Good. That was it Pence actually knotted he smiled. He didn't say yes, he didn't which is kind of weird. And I I don't know. Maybe they're making too much out of that. Well, it was a I don't I think that is way too much into it as a press conference where the spotlight isn't on Pinson. He's just a laid back kind of calm guy. And he's just you know, nodding respectfully there's no microphone in his face. I mean, whatever this is a roll call reporter, though key. Oh, seated just a few feet away from the vice president noticed he never actually said anything Pence was asked about his loyalty in twenty twenty GOP ticket at the end of his recent Asia swing it again, according to a dispatch from his traveling principal. He didn't answer in the affirmative. So this sounds more like Pence, maybe doesn't want to. I'm just tempted not to dignify it with a comment. He said on seventeenth that was eleven days ago, the president, and I have a very close relationship. We've got a very strong relationship. My magic muffins are done that notification wants. You need you need a hot though to kind of in the magic oven. So we get them out. He said I've been honored to serve as his vice president. I was honoured when he asked me to run with him. And he's I guess still honored it came up. We had a good laugh, but do they have a deal to run again together with speculation of a possible change continuing? They actually go over some possible candidates switch..
