The White House tasing backlash as it pushes forward with the controversial plan to transport detained migrants and release them in so called sanctuary cities. Look this as an option on the table. The president heard the idea he likes it. So well, we're looking to see if there are options that make it possible that department of homeland security twice rejected the plan. But the president tweeting the US has the absolute legal rights have apres handed illegal immigrants transferred to sanctuary cities. Mayors from so called sanctuary cities across the country. Entry where they choose not to comply with immigration laws are welcoming the migrants and calling the idea political retaliation. We in Seattle in this region will stand up against a president who divides America. The president's press secretary admitting this is not an ideal option, but actually could encourage more emigrants it's would be easier for these migrants put down roots in the US in sanctuary city. So it seems to run counter to his objectives. Again, this isn't the president's plan. His top priority is to stop the flow of illegal immigration coming into our country to begin with.

"Are you hiring with indeed you can post job in minutes set up screener questions than zero in on your shortlist of qualified candidates using an online dashboard get started today at indeed dot com slash perspective. That's indeed dot com slash perspective from ABC news. This is perspective. A closer look at the week's top stories and the stories you may have missed I'm Sherry Preston. Coming up. She got into car. She thought was her Uber. But it wasn't the tragic death of a college student in South Carolina. Shame history in Chicago as the city. Alexa, new mayor. We will celebrate our differences. We will embrace our uniqueness, and we will make certain that all have every opportunity to succeed and President Obama's longest-serving advisor Gibbs suffice for some of the twenty twenty candidates the are stronger when we recognize that being inclusive and finding what we have in common. Optimism about our bright future. That's the vision for our country that I support. All ahead on perspective. After declaring full exoneration reports have surfaced this week that the limited information attorney general William bar shared about the Russia investigation as frustrated some on special counsel, Robert Muller's team at comes as the president continues to call for Republican healthcare plan and threatens to close the southern border for more on those stories and everything else happening in DC. Let's go to our ABC news, political director recline a lot of debate. This week Rick about the summary report. Was it an actual summary? Was it just, you know, wait some conclusions? Where do we stand with with the Muller report? And with attorney general Bill bar. We don't have an actual report yet we have a summary of a report. And now we have conflicting information about who's happy about what is or isn't included in it. And it actually has become more of a question and not less than in the week and a half or so since Muller Muller produced his findings and bar summarize those findings. We are expecting to see something in the next week or so according to the attorney general, but even that is going to be. Shrouded in questions because there's going to be portions of it that are blacked out that are redacted for privacy reasons or other considerations. So there's a lot of questions still out there. And I think the initial take of this of being a huge political benefit boon to the president. I think we've tempered that a little bit just because there's still a lot. We don't know regardless of the political fight with the legal experts that you've been talking to how much do we the American people and the tax payers have a right to see some stuff in this very sensitive material in that report. Well, we paid for the report. And of course, there's intense public interest in the twenty two month investigation. But there is information that would include grand jury testimony that might I involve people that have not been charged or indicted, and then he crime could kind of peripheral players potentially. You could also have information, they're given the the Russian hacking and the and the the interference. That was the initial focus of the investigation that gets at what the intelligence community called sources and methods. You don't want the Russians to find out how we learn certain things. So there's all those things. Plus, there's the possibility. Of the president trying to exert executive privilege or the attorney general exerting that on his behalf. So there are a lot of categories of things that could be kept secret. And I think the fight that congress has initiated now in subpoenaing in the report potentially bringing it to them, and in unredacted form is gonna take a while to play out, of course, in the president saying I want the whole thing released, and then maybe not maybe not Andy said he was going to close the southern border and the southern border is is still open was that just another thing saying, I'm gonna do this. And then it doesn't happen or did it actually did Mexico actually step up and do something. There's no evidence that Mexico seriously changed its behaviour it's enforcement along the border of this seems to be the president either as a negotiating strategy or just the the musings that he sometimes engages in there's been fierce blowback, even for many Republicans and business groups about what the impact of closed border would be it's really not practical and even the senators from Texas Ted Cruz, and John Cornyn among saying this would be an economic disaster and the urging the White House not to do it. So it's unclear whether he's serious about this. He. Sometimes says things that he does not follow through on it. I don't think that's a price to any of us at this point, Sherry how big will. And how many how successful will the fight to be to get the president's tax returns. I mean, they're going back to a law from the nineteen twenties. Trying to say that they have the right to see these tax returns. What do you think anything there? Yeah. That that lots almost one hundred years old I in it's very rarely been exerted. But it does give the congressional committees the right to see anyone's tax returns, the catches it has to be for a legitimate legislative purpose now Democrats will say we automation of the tax code is fair. We wanna make sure the audit process around presidents is fair. We wanna make sure that that there's a count ability for public officials all of which are legitimate legislative interests. The White House is already saying, it is a fishing expedition. Ultimately, it's going to fall to the Treasury Secretary. Of course, Steve Mnuchin appointed by and confirmed to the Senate, but would appointed by President Trump. I, and I think ultimately the courts, this is bound for determination inside the court system, and it will test this law. That's been re very rarely used looking ahead to next week. What are we going? On all eyes on Joe Biden in the coming week. You know, he has been buffeted by this criticism of some inappropriate contact that some women have alleged toward him. This is the phase that he's in right now to be essentially launching a presidential campaign. He's got a speech scheduled for for next week. And it is going to be a very big deal. Whatever he does. That is probably the biggest the the biggest domino still the fall in the twenty twenty race ABC's reclined. Thank you so much. Thank story. Jarrett was the senior advisor to President Barack Obama for most of the eight years that he was in office not long after leaving office. She became the subject of a racist tweet from Roseanne Barr now she's out with a memoir. I talked to her about that memoir. She opened up about her views on the current political climate at Roseanne tweet and advice for democratic candidates running for president. Let's talk a little bit first of all about what happened Chicago. I mean, I African American woman I know that you were supporting Lori Lightfoot s- opponent, Toni preckwinkle who's a former teacher, and she's very big in the Democratic Party there. But what do you think of Lori life? I think she's terrific. She is a story candidate. I know she's committed to Chicago. She loves our city did support Toni preckwinkle I've known Tony for thirty years. She was my alderman back when she was an alderman, and I've been very impressed with the work. She's done at the county board. And so the good news is we have the chairman of the Cook County board, and we have the mayor of the city of Chicago who I know we're going to work together and move the city forward have you ever given any thought to running for mayor? I have given thought to it in years gone by and now, I'm really interested in helping other people run for office. And I'm delighted to see not just in Chicago. But around the country, so many women who are jumping in and being willing to put themselves in the Rena and running for office. I think that's good for our city and for the country. And let's talk about that. I mean, so many women running for president beieve women five win out of which you know, we're moving up there a little bit. What do you think of that huge field of Democrats? I think I call it an embarrassment of riches, and I'm delighted to see so many committed folks who want to serve our country, and who are willing to put themselves on the line and take their case directly to the American people. So I'm very enthusiastic about the field. How about Joe Biden? I mean, the things that have come out over the past couple of weeks. I'd like your thoughts on that. Because it's really I mean, that's Joe Biden. Well, and I think he got it. Right. When he said, it's a new day, and it's time for men to listen and that he intends to. Listen, I think modeling that kind of behavior is really important. My book is called finding my voice. And so I'm encouraged to see women beginning with the metoo movement where some very brave women we're willing to step forward. And and talk about what had happened to them, which is quite traumatic. And obviously there's a whole spectrum. But it's important that women know that their voices are going to be heard. And I thought that vice president Biden acknowledged that. And I was impressed that he did I have a theory that the metoo movement in the times up movement wouldn't have happened. It maybe not at all. But certainly not as quickly without the election of Donald Trump. And by that, I say that things were percolating and maybe with the election of Hillary Clinton. It was well, we're okay, we'll be fine. And a lot of women after the election of Donald Trump said, no, no, no, no. It's my own personal theory. And and, but that's I think that it sort of sort of bubbled over the top. And they said we're speaking up now, we're as tight. Of your book is finding my voice. I'm finding my voice. I'm saying something about it. Well, the day after the inauguration, we saw record crowds of women come out for the women's March. And I think that the activism among women around the country has been tremendous over the last couple of years women running for congress record number of women who are elected to congress as well. And so I think activism is great. I'm not sure exactly what triggered it. But if the election of Donald Trump, did then I think that's terrific. Because I I love to see the people who represent our country representing the great diversity of our country when you look at the Trump presidency. What are your thoughts? Well, it's profoundly disappointing to me. Obviously, I was a support of Hillary Clinton. I thought that she would continue to move our country forward in a positive direction. I thought that her message was similar to rock Obama's message. Which is that we are stronger when we recognize that being inclusive and finding what we have in common and not polarizing ourselves. And speaking in a way that our young people will look up to us and feel optimism about our bright future in that's the vision for our country that I support, and that's actually not the one that I've seen over the last couple of years and looking forward if you were to guess two years from now where we would be I know that that's difficult and we don't not in the guessing game. But, you know, going forward the Democrats message it has to be more than we're not Donald Trump because there's a lot of people across the country, including many, Illinois downstate, Illinois, who who like Donald Trump they like his blunt style. They, you know, they don't like we don't like some of the things he. Does. But I I love what he's done for the economy fill in the blanks. Well, this is what I've said to several of the candidates who are running for president is is that I think they are at their strongest when they're talking about what they stand for. But their track record is what their vision for America is what they're going to do to help working families around our country. Not just get by but thrive, and if they have that optimism clear message about their values and their vision and their track record. I think that resonates with the American people coming up the stork mayoral race in Chicago. And more of our interview with Valerie Jarrett on perspective after this. These days news comes out of Washington so fast. It can be hard to keep up. I just don't think this is going to play out the way everybody thinks it's going to play out. We're getting giancarl prediction. Look, we need special music for this. I'm ABC news political director Rick Klein, join me along with ABC's chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl. Every week as we break down the facts and turn to Washington insiders with tough questions on the powerhouse politics podcasts or you're gonna talk to moan I always listen for free on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast app. Welcome back to perspective. I'm Sherry Preston. Women in leadership women in politics, the twenty twenty presidential race in finding your voice of get back to more of our interview with longtime White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, how difficult was it for you? As a woman to find your voice in the Obama administration. I know that you're the one who hired Michelle Robinson was her maiden name, and she introduced you to Barack Obama. And you said I don't think you should run for president. No, actually, I my mistake was saying he shouldn't run for the US Senate. And I was wrong. I stand corrected when he thought of running for president. I was all in. I thought that he was just what our nation needed thought. I was confident that he could do. Well. And after I knew he could win. What do you say that young people? I have a son who's entering college in just a few months. Congratulations. Thank you. That's terrific. Only one. It's my only boy. Oh boy. I know it's and. Kitchen worried these you know, the generation Z kids, and the millennials they're looking forward, and they're looking at our generation going, and you guys really left us with a big old pile of fun. Didn't you but they're up to it? I have to say look, the young folks from parkland, many of who've I've gotten to know of over the last year and their willingness not just advocate in Florida for reducing gun violence, but to get on a bus and spend their summer, traveling our country, red and blue states alike, and making a case for why we should be able to send our children to school and know that they're safe is heartening to me, and I love their activism, and I think it's contagious, and I'm heartened to see their willingness to take a real extrordinary tragedy and try to make sure that the rest of our children, stay say, what did you think about the Roseanne Barr thing as I said at the time, I put myself in the arena. And so I'm fine, and I have an enormous amount of support. But I think that it's symptomatic. Of a bigger problem. And I think we've got to figure out a way to communicate with each other without making it personal without turning into name calling. We're all adults here, and we can have reasonable policy differences. The let's sit down and talk them through. Let's not talk at each other. And I think one of the challenges that we have with social media is that we have the ability to hide behind availability and not have to look into the eyes of the person to whom you're speaking, and we were talking earlier about Twitter. And I mean, my younger cousins have been telling me recently about ghosting people and never did that when we were growing up we actually had a conversation. And I think developing those interpersonal skills on is important, not just in politics and service and in government, but in our personal lives as well. So I think we have to figure out how we can disagree without being disagreeable. I like to go to a part in your book. This is the end you said when you were entering Michigan law school. You said you said you wanted to go. Accomplish these goals in the next ten years. Your plan was number one graduate from Stanford. I guess this before you went to college credit number to graduate from Michigan. Number three. Discover my career passion number four fall in love and Mary number five have a baby and number six before filled satisfied and happy wife and a working mom all by thirty one. That was my goal all by thirty one. It didn't work out. So well, you've pretty much most of those. I know, but but that's kind of my printing weight goal. This is my point is is that I did achieve those goals, but all within a very narrow comfort zone in a straight line. And it wasn't until some of those goals started falling apart. And I realized I was miserable that I got outside of that comfort zone. And I developed kind of the an appreciation in confidence for the adventure of the zigzag. And if I had stuck to those goals, I wouldn't be happy at thirty. I wasn't happy at thirty one. And I had a terrible marriage. And I didn't enjoy practicing law of big law firm, and I had to do a real gut. Check. And and initially I hadn't trusted the most important voice. Which is the quiet one inside of us. And I was doing what everybody else thought I should do. And it wasn't what I wanted. And so I I say to people all the time. Yeah. You can come up with a ten year plan. But remember that it's okay. And in fact, I encourage you to abandon it if it doesn't work out, and that that doesn't make you a failure. Just means it's time to zig zag and that that zig zag that swirl if he will that's where the magic happens. Valerie Jarrett, thanks so much. The book is called finding my voice my journey to the west wing and the path forward. Thank you so much. My pleasure. Sherry thanks for having me. History was indeed made in Chicago this week in a runoff race. Democrats Lori Lightfoot and Toni preckwinkle faced off both were trying to become the first African American woman to serve as Chicago's mayor. The winter we will celebrate our differences. We want brace our uniqueness, and we will make certain that all have every opportunity to succeed ABC's. Ryan burrow has more on Lori Lightfoot historic victory. Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel shock, the windy city and September when he announced as much as I love this job. And we'll always love this city and its residence I've decided not to seek reelection for the first time since twenty eleven and open mayoral election in Chicago and the candidates started lining up, including former Obama chief of staff and brother and son of legendary Chicago mayors Bill Daley, most of my career's been not like my brother father who are career politicians mind has been in the private sector. I think some of those experiences talents. Also. Chief-of-staff is commerce sector. I could bring the bear in the mayor's office Amora Enya community activists who got the backing of Chicago musicians conga west and chance the rapper if you're afraid of change you're probably not going to vote for. But if you're willing to see what this city could be then you will vote fourteen candidates in total at in the chaos. Former US prosecutor quietly began building her case, it was mayor Rahm Emanuel who appointed Lori Lightfoot head of the Chicago police board eight twenty fifteen in the wake of the police officer shooting of the Kwan McDonald, the board would recommend a handful of potential candidates in a nationwide search for a new police superintendent, but the mayor went a different direction and selected superintendent Eddie Johnson from in house today are also appointed Lightfoot to lead the police accountability task force an independent agency tasked with investigating allegations of police brutality as well as recommending police reform, the city would go on to enter into a consent decree that was rejected by the Trump administration and later accepted by the Illinois attorney general Lightfoot resign. Signed her role and may of two thousand eighteen months later announced she would campaign against her. Former boss Emanuel, even before he announced he would not seek re-election. You need a man who is not afraid to take on the unions and do the right thing. Life message on crime often drowned out by the fire Chicago police superintendent, turn candidate Terry McCarthy, desire, another shoe. That's her height washed over by candidate Willie Wilson, a candidate who literally handed out money to people at churches three hundred thousand maybe a little bit more to people on the street, and I never have asked innovative both me and her experience overshadowed by the longtime leadership of Cook County board, president Toni preckwinkle, but preckwinkle ran into trouble when longtime Chicago city alderman, Ed Burke, was indicted for allegedly extorting fast food chain scandal also involved another city alderman, one who wore a wire for the feds ultimate Burke was alleged to have solicited campaign funds for Toni preckwinkle, it's a corruption scandal that dogged preckwinkle in the months to come. I have returned all the money that was raised. At that fundraiser, but Lightfoot as an outsider who was part of the Chicago political machine saw her chance to pounce. She took on corruption with a message that started to resonate with Chicago in I represent the future and change an independent form of government. She represents something from the past. She grabbed the endorsement of the Chicago sun times, and in the February election surprised many by finishing with the most votes of all fourteen candidates, my personal and professional experiences. Have prepared me to lead with compassion and Taggart and persistent. She didn't get the fifty percent needed for an outright win and it forced a head to head race with pre-quake who finished in second place. You took weeks to even acknowledge that you've got the money, and then frankly through on and Burke under the bus. And then you said, it was our aunt hottest Burke, then yet Burke has been my and Burke has been a colleague international that it Janis for reelection cannot solicit money in the faceoff April. First Lightfoot won the runoff election by. A nearly three to one margin grabbing more than seventy percent of the vote and becoming Chicago's first African American female mayor I openly gay mayors. Together, we can and will make Chicago a place where your sip code doesn't determine your destination. She'll take office may twentieth. Why burrow ABC news Chicago? Coming up.

That's indeed dot com slash perspective from ABC news. This is perspective. Look at the week's top stories and the stories you may have missed I'm Sherry Preston. Coming up. Julia Louis Dreyfuss tells us about her recovery from cancer the first a man arrested this week for the murder of university of South Carolina student. Samantha Josephson, she got into a car. She thought was her Uber. The alleged killer locked the car doors from the inside for more. Here's ABC's Victor oquendo. Smith was by herself. She had absolutely no chance a heart wrenching vigil for college senior Samantha Josephson. She truly was. My life per less moments. Caught on surveillance footage getting into what appears to be her Uber, but it's a stranger police. Save Nathaniel Roland kidnapped and murdered the twenty one year old before discarding her body in a remote wooded area. I lies will forever. Be better for having known her. Family and friends remembering the university of South Carolina student for positively and bright future. Samantha was to go to law school. Now, those dreams gone and with ridesharing apps more popular than ever with an estimated seventy five million writers on Uber alone questions swirling about how passengers can stay safe. It was a typical Thursday night here in five points in area, really popular with college students near the university of South Carolina campus, Samantha Josephson and her friends. They were out here at this bar called the bird dog after she got separated from the group. She decided to go home police say she ordered an Uber after two AM waiting alone outside on the surveillance footage of black Chevy Impala pulled up and Josephson got in. We believe that she simply mistakenly got into this particular car thinking, it was a new Garad. It was none. The next day worried friends called the police had not heard from her. The next morning. I became worried about one thirty. They reached out to the police department to report her missing, but it would be too late, but it in fan by a couple of people hunting and a field in what was described by the sheriff to us as a wooded area in a very rural part of the county. According to the arrests work Josephson suffered multiple wounds to were body including her head neck face, upper body, leg and foot. The coroner releasing her cause of death as due to multiple sharp force injuries. Police truck down the vehicle surveillance video arrested Twenty-four-year-old Nathaniel Rowland and a traffic. Stop around three AM inside police say they found liquid bleach cleaning wipes and window cleaner. The Chevy Impala on that was driven by the suspect had a large large amount of liquid that we believed to be blood and once they did a presumptive test. In fact, was confirmed to be blood rolling is now charged with kidnapping and. Order police describing how he was able to carry out his alleged crime further investigation on the suspect vehicle determine the child than a child safety seat was in the back, and then the child safety locks were activated on the door that would not allow someone to the means of escape from the back of the suspect vehicle in court hearing, which the alleged murderer did not attend Josephson's mother with this emotional plea. Unaccepted? It sittings thing that it is face was the last thing baby girl from his birth. The over name never be given the right to create get for whether it's my daughter. Given the opportunity hurt anyone out Manton? Does it said? Methodist don't ever forget. Shame. On campus some students saying they'll continue to be vigilant. Are you gonna take extra precautions? Oh, yeah. I'm definitely going to be checking like who's over driver checking the license plates. All that stuff. I'm telling my friends attack the conflates like the Herbert number and not I'm not gonna maneuvering alone. Police have not said at the killing was tortured, but are asking the public to report any encounters with fake Roger drivers. We also had asked anybody that has been in five points, you know, in in recent times that has had anybody try to entice them over to a car like in Rochester, capacity. We would ask them to give us a call. Uber calling this an unspeakable crime sing their hearts or with Samantha Josephson's family and loved ones writing the we've been working with local law enforcement and college campuses across the country to educate the public about how to avoid fake Roger drivers. They also caution users to use the app to double-check to important details before starting a trip that driver. And the car you guys have to travel together for Josephson's father and the rest of her family the warnings come too late, but they're now focused on making sure this doesn't happen to another family. Some what I wanna do is educate everybody and not on the smartest person here, but I've gone through this. And I don't want anybody else to ever go through this again. I can't tell you. How painful this is? I'm Victor oquendo in Columbia, South Carolina. Coming up. No care providers in rural America. Down with the film director who explored this topic and her new documentary on perspective after this. Hey, I'm Dan Harris from ABC news, and I have a podcast, and you listen to it. It's called ten percent, happier. It's all about how to stay sane in our increasingly insane world, we talked to everybody from the Dalai Lama finds vide- bulletin for human to rupaul. You have to explore this life that fun. It interesting may even change your life. You can listen to it for free on apple podcasts or on your favorite podcast app. This is perspective. From ABC news. I'm Sherry Preston. Award-winning director and producer Anna moot. Levin is out with a new documentary premiering on PBS, April eighth. It's called the providers. And it follows three healthcare professionals in northern New Mexico at El Centro, a group of safety net clinics that offer care to all of those who walk through its doors. It is certainly a challenge. Stop by ABC. And I talked to her about the film. What got you interested in the whole idea of there being a lack of medical facilities doctors in rural communities, so Laura Mike co-director, and I were both children of doctors ourselves. So we have a long standing interest in health and healthcare issues, and we were reading in two thousand fourteen about communities that after the passage of the Affordable Care Act. They were still struggle. Going to meet the needs of the communities because there weren't enough doctors. And so we set out on a six month journey of talking to people all around the country involved in rural medicine and primary care and trying to find out what is today's country doctor so to speak look like in rural America, that's facing so many challenges. I know that a lot of people talk about food deserts in parts of the country where they can't get healthy groceries. They've been talking about now news, desserts where you can't get local news. It sounds like you've come up with the same thing when it comes to healthcare and doctors, you know, sort of a medical desert for people who are in areas. How far do some people have to drive to find a facility that will help treat? What the have yet? So we definitely have discovered medical desert's. A we see patients in our clinics that in the film that have to travel an hour. Our to go to just their primary care practitioner, and especially when you're looking at communities that are strained financially. That can be a real challenge not just in terms of the cost of the gas to get to the doctor. But also the time taking time from work and juggling. So many different things. Tell us a little bit about the communities, and then were there any that really stood out to you that this is a real problem in this particular area of the country. So are filmed the providers is set in northern New Mexico in the towns of last Vegas, New Mexico. The other last Vegas and SPN Yola New Mexico and the clinic that we set the film at El Centro family health. They have a number of sites and they cover over. Twenty two thousand square miles of northern New Mexico, which is about the size of West Virginia. And so their clinics are really serving a need in the community for healthcare and people otherwise wouldn't be able to access care and El Centro family health the clinic where the film is set is a federally qualified health center, and it really serves as the safety net in these small town communities in northern New Mexico. How big a deal is the opioid crisis, and these places the opioid crisis is really damaging communities and what we've found particularly in northern New Mexico which actually before the current opioid crisis has a long history of. Heroin use dating back to the Vietnam war that what we see a lot is intergenerational youths and really a cycle of addiction trauma, and poverty, and the stories in the film show that healthcare can really be a point of intervention in that cycle the doctor in that you profiled in the documentary his father died of an opioid overdose. While you were filming. Yes. So first of all, he's actually not an MD. He's a physician assistant. And so we're seeing in rural America advanced practitioners, so nurse practitioners and physician assistants really becoming the workforce. And yes, over the course of us making the film, his father dies of an overdose. Which was absent. Lutely devastating in the film. You also see his sister struggling with addiction repealing the Affordable Care Act is that a big deal to people in these areas. Are they on that kind of healthcare or do they have their own insurance? New Mexico did expand, Medicaid, and that has really dramatically impacted how many people can access care in the community. And the clinic that our film is set at the vast majority of the people at the clinic or on Medicaid or Medicare and without that expanded access to Medicaid. They would really be in trouble. Really what we see often in rural communities is practitioners come for a few years, and then leave and that lack of continuity of care is really damaging because. Because patients than don't trust the medical system. Really, those long term relationships are absolutely critical to patients health doesn't sound like people are moving into you know, where these rural communities address pace, but any solutions. Absolutely. So the research shows that the best way to get more healthcare providers into rural communities is to grow your own. And so we see in the film. Matt Probst has started a program where he mentors local high school students to pursue healthcare careers, and therefore you really a revitalizing the community from within the movie premieres the providers at appear premieres Monday, April eighth on PBS and Adam Levin. Thank you very much. Thank you so much coming up. Julia Louis Dreyfuss on recovering from. Cancer. Season of veep on perspective after this have a dream. But don't know where to begin. I didn't want to be limited looking for wisdom from women who've already been there, you will constantly be given the opportunity to lose yourself. Welcome to ABC's. No limits. I'm your host, Rebecca Jarvis. And each week. We're talking to the game changing women about success lessons learned along the way. And of course, the worst advice and really thought about this worst advice ever, you can hear new episodes of no limits every week on apple podcasts or your favorite podcast app. Welcome back to perspective and Sherry after. She became a household. Name after successful roles in the show. Seinfeld and veep now. Julia Louis Dreyfuss is looking ahead. She stopped by good Morning America to talk with Robin Roberts about the final season of veep, end or battle with breast cancer. I am on that. It's not easy to go public as you don't have a choice, but still yes. But what was it for you? You posted so much, and you really helped a lot of people. Well, that was the that was sort of the good thing that came out of this experience because I frankly, I would never have sort of made this public journey, but I kind of had to given the circumstances because our show had to shut down and hundreds of people work on our show and so on and so forth shut down for a period of time. But the the, but there was a huge benefit to that. As you say, I got a lot of I I don't know. I I think I reached a lot of people I was able to raise a lot of money for for women who have had mastectomies who need we construction but insurance doesn't cover that. And I was really happy to be able to do that. And I don't know it was just the outpouring of support was quite overwhelming and very very booing to me. Me frankly, personally. Yes. I know. What I should talk about it. Yeah. I wanna help others. You're the one in return all the goodwill. Knowing people from wall walks of life you up. Yeah. And also, I mean, it sounds kind of corny. But there's something about at what after you've walked through something like this, which is such a crisis to be able to sort of look help someone who's then going through. It is very sort of comforting to yourself in a weird way. Hope I mean, it really is something that I'm happy to do. It gives me a lot of energy. And and and a good feeling your additional post was so good. And it really helped the discussion you said impart. The good news is that I have the most glorious group of support of caring family, friends, fantastic insurance through my union. The bad news is not all women are so lucky. So it's been great that you've been able to have that discussion. Yes. Well, I think universal healthcare is is a must and I'm. The idea that people who might be enduring this kind of huge crisis, and it's terrifying to get a diagnosis like this. And if you don't have insurance or means, oh, what do you do and that should be a fundamental, right? You know, like drinking. Really help your sons your husband the post that they put out there. And really, you know laughter is the best medicine in this. Yes, it certainly helpful to you. Well, I was every time somebody, you know, my my children were incredible. They were even people that I work with were posting after my boys sort of did this song. And and which made me, of course, cry and feel good all the same time. Then people at work from veep started doing exactly the same thing. And I was so it was very it helped me get through chemotherapy. And in a big way because she got to it's a serious thing. But yet out to find the lightness in it and the posted pa-, both your family, and oh my gosh. Your cast mates. Yes. Hysterical. Got you. Yeah. Last season, really. Well, it was a creative decision. I have to say it was creative. We really felt like okay, we got one more season of stories to tell. And if we stretch this out longer, I feel like the the work will will suffer. And so, but I'm very excited about this season. I have to tell you. I'm really. Gone. But like like, my daddy said, always leave people wanting more. Yeah. For sure if that's what you're gonna do.
