"On this episode of Newt's world, I came from a family that suffered from addiction to our Kahal. My father really had calms without Kamal. And my mother was really debilitated by her alcoholism and depression. And of course, my father suffered tremendous post traumatic stress. There's no one who better fed candidate for suffering from PTSD than my late father at three witness brothers being shot killed the fact of the matter is my family was very emotionally impacted and psychologically impacted by everything that happened, and my brother sister, and I grew up in that house where all of that was going on. On this episode of Newt's world, I'm joined by congressman Patrick Kennedy for a candidate discussion on what it's like growing up as a Kennedy following his father and uncles footsteps into public office, only to have addiction tear his life apart and ultimately causing him to hit rock bottom now in his own recovery. He's become a leading national voice in addiction issues and sobriety mental health issues and our current national discussion about the legalization of marijuana. I've known him for many years, and it's a privilege to have him. Join me to tell his personal story. Patrick, tell us about the day you hit rock bottom. The car crash of the us capital that made national headlines Charvis speaker. It's great to be with you and share topper -tunities to talk about an issue that I think is really at the core an existential crisis for our country, and that's the epidemic of addiction and mental illness and the rising suicide and overdose. Rates and the enormous number of people who are suffering from addiction and depression and anxiety underneath that terrible tip of the iceberg, which are the completed suicides and overdoses. You know, this is a very personal issue to me. And I think it's probably personal to most Americans. I come at it from a number of different perspectives. First and foremost, I'm myself than someone who lives in long term recovery. And that means I haven't had to use alcohol or mind altering substance since February twenty second two thousand eleven and what happened to me like what happens to most people who end up in recovery is that we hit a bottom and that bottom for me again when I had that car crash in the United States capitol. It was a number of years after that that I decided that I could not sustain my. Service in congress. Given the fact that my addiction was a progressive illness, and it was getting worse and worse than I worried about some incident like the car crash happening again, if I didn't leave congress and devote myself ole time to my recovery, which is what I did in two thousand and ten but I say all that because for those who are listening. You know, it's often very circuitous route that we take to finally reach sobriety. The car accident was if you will real wake up call even though I was essentially unconscious when I was driving because I had been taking and the in in order to try to sleep. This was about three months after I got out of rehab for Oxycontin addiction. And I found it very difficult to sleep because I'd often self. Medicated with with oxygen cotton. What happened to me was I, you know, woke up the next day, and my car wasn't where I had parked it. And I had this panic of overcome me, I went to the capital vote at a couple of times. And then I got a call in the cloakroom, and my chief of staff said that I'd better come back because he had learned from the capitol police that I had crashed my car into a security barrier apparently three in the morning the night before had gotten up gone to my car thought I needed to vote and went to drove to the capital and wherein. I crashed my car, you know, it was a as you could imagine a cluster of national media kind of descended upon me as everyone tried to figure out, you know, where I had been the night before. You know, what influence was I under? Did I go to a bar, and it was the usual kind of you know, Puran interest in someone else's tragedy. And you know, what happened was that? I went back to rehab. I thought I was gonna lose my political career. Because of course, people are calling on to resign my office. I went to back to rehab, but I spent the whole time there as opposed to just getting in and out, which I done just a few months earlier because I was worried that it would find out that I had been to rehab this time, essentially, the gig was up if you will people knew that I had it's been suffering, and I had to admit it myself, the rest of us can learn from your experience, I guess that the end of the day what I think is the most important challenge for us as a nation as what was a challenge for me personally. And that is coming to the realization that I had a prob. Them. They say for those who suffer from mental illness and addiction that where the last wants to know that we have a problem, and it's the lack of insight that is the single characteristic of anyone suffering from a mental illness and addiction, and I would say that not only to many of us suffer lack of insight if we're not constantly working on a greater consciousness about our illness. But I think our country is suffering from a lack of insight as to how impactful these illnesses are and how little attention we give to actually addressing a better strategy for addressing these illnesses turning point over if people want help there there is help on. Unfortunately, there isn't a system which is in place that works in an optimal way to kind of. Give them the best chance of reaching sobriety. In a we could put that system together. Mr Speaker, it should be put together and incorporate both the medical system at as well as other systems, and yet we just haven't gotten about the process of putting the political will to to create that system. This is a chronic illness. I it's not something that can just be addressed. With a a quick, you know rehab or it is kind of a lifetime commitment to recovery. Much like someone with diabetes would struggle with trying to keep their sugar and balance and try to on a day-to-day basis manage an illness that requires their constant attention. That's what recovering from addiction requires. So I would tell them that, you know, twelve step recovery is in my view, the best, you know, cognitive behavioral therapy. That I know of and I have pretty much surveyed every type of treatment and therapy that there is in this country personally, and I've kind of been on this Lewis and Clark voyage myself through every type of rehab, and inpatient and outpatient and psychiatric treatment there that there is. So I I know of what I speak, and that is that there's at the end of the day nothing that works better than being in recovery with your peers because the best way to achieve lasting sobriety is to build a network of support and professionals can be very helpful. But they cannot be there in the kind of ongoing way, then then your friends, and those that are, you know, walking and trudging the road with you in recovery. So I would encourage them to to find. And recovery through the twelve step programs, which are available to all. And frankly, are you know, working miracles every single day all across this country all across the world. Walks up to you and says, you know, I know that I'm addicted really would like to. Go through a recovery program. But when I try just seem to fail. What's your advice that person and how how do you sort of hold their hand or try to help them have a sense of that they can get through it? Yeah. I mean, it's feel like a death sentence. I know that two people, you know, are trying to think about getting on the road to recovery and kind of what that means. You know, we take it really simply and that is it's just for today. You know, we just decide today not to drink or take drugs. You know, as my sponsor tells me tomorrow, Patrick, you can, you know, have the biggest, wow, this party and do everything you want tomorrow. But just not for today. Just just today. And then, you know, tomato comes around make to this. Well, today, I'm not going to drink her drugs. You know war if it's a really difficult day. You know this afternoon, I'm not gonna work or you know. The next hour. And then I call my sponsor, I call my support group, and I get help because what I end up doing is plugging into what's ever going on in their life. And you know, then I find that they've got their own challenges that day, and they're sharing those with me and all of a sudden, I don't feel much alone. And I really think it's that notion of constantly being connected to other people in a very intimate way. That is what recovery is about. And so it's not something that you really don't wanna do for the rest of your life. In fact, it's a an ongoing process of trying to do what you know, is frankly, been very foreign to people who have fallen into addiction, and that is to connect with people because these illnesses of addiction really isolate you and disconnect you from your friends and family and the best way. To you know, treat these el-nessim is to engage in real intimate connections where you're sharing everything that's going on your life. You're not holding back. You're not shaming yourself. You're you're honest about what your challenges are. And as a result. Life is a little bit easier to to shoulder. And so I would also say that there's an element here of spirituality, a very important element. And what we say in recovery is that are drinking and drugging his, but a symptom of our problem, and our problem is a lack of power we cannot solve all the problems that we want to in our lives. And and that's the reason we drink and drugs to self medicate because we can't manage we need power. And that power is God for me. I you know, as you may know, gone back. To my religion of my of my childhood of baptized on my children, and my wife, and I have gotten married in the Catholic church. We initially got a civil marriage, and then decided that we wanted to get married in the church and went through a process to do that at the same time. Frankly, we recently baptized, our fifth child so life to me in recovery is is much more than not drinking or drugging. It's about how to live a life. That is you know, frankly, kind of follows the ancient tenants of you know, what we should be doing with our lives as opposed to falling victim to what they call the seven deadly sins, pride anger envy, greed, lust, gluttony and sloth. And all I know is that those seven deadly sins of been. Devil minutes of for me, and I need God's help in order to extinguish them and often get God's help through turning to my fellows recovery. And that to me is what being in long term sobriety needs. We'll talk about what it was like growing up in the Kennedy family and being a congressman at the same time. Your father is the senior Senator from I suggests. I

"Just like we try to stay physically fit in the rest of our bodies. And and and by the way, that's important for not only those who are at risk for mental illness, depression, addiction and the like it it's good for everybody. So the bottom line is we have so much advocate for on so many different fronts and their ways for people to pick where they want to be involved, and then to advocate, and we need to expand our legislative advocacy, Louis elect them as members of congress state legislators as governors, you know, obviously as president we've got a lot of work to do. And we need a lot of people to help us do that. So anyone of your listeners listening? I'm only mentioning all of that as a way of inviting them to know that there many many. Ways that they can be involved. Thank you. Thank you so much, obviously by listening you're involved, but you can always do more hook up with your local nonprofit organization your mental Health Organization. Check out Patrick Kennedy's websites. Do a Google search? There's there's lots of ways to get involved. Don't sit on the sidelines any longer Patrick. Thank you so much for being on the show.

"Learn when it was really successful in the civil rights movement. It wasn't enough for them to pass the Civil Rights Act. They then had to Voting Rights Act to really give some muscle and teeth to it, and then they had the Voting Rights Act and the fair point act. It's an ongoing process. And of course, today that advocacy continues. So I hate to say, but this is never gonna end in terms of our need to advocate, but that should be a challenge. All. Your listeners to step up because I know I've got kids, and I want them to grow up in a world where they're not going to have to be so self conscious about whether they get care for illnesses that are largely genetic. I mean Iseo are more genetic and than any other set of illnesses. So we want our medical system not to discriminate against that. The way we've been discriminated against because of our illness and the outdated ideas that people have as to whether these illnesses are real or not. So that's a long way of saying that yes, we shouldn't be having to push. So our this should have been enforced. But you know, frankly, they had the end bolaise CP suing all across America Justice Marshall, Thurgood Marshall was out there fighting fighting fighting, you know, Dr king have calming to marches, so this they they. Were organized looked at which marches would be best in which places based upon where the advocacy was the strongest and where they could organize a March we need to do the same. I'm saying all this to say, we need our own AA CPA in the world of mental health and diction and proper to say, the Kennedy forum has put together a legal work rid of some of the best minds who are are litigating parody cases all over the country as as kind of a first attempt to put that together. But yeah, we need to keep pushing. It'll never stop right, right. You're right. So along those lines how can our listeners become involved. Where can they find out more information on the don't deny me campaign and tell us about what they can do? So that don't deny me God or as I said, the parody registry dot org are vehicles. You know, they're. Part of our Tennessee forum, John orange, and that's an initiative to really start to map out. What are the issues as well? So people want to become involved. Some people wanna be big proponents of supportive housing, you know, supportive housings crucial element for people to have security and stability. So that they can men have their treatment really be most effective in some places. They wanna advocate, or you know, the right treatments that are not as available in some places. They are other places. The bottom line is in every other area. Whether it's the environment weather labor law. You know, whatever, it is all of them have aid is a list of issues, and we. We in our field needs to get much more sophisticated in terms of what we do to advocate on behalf of a whole range of issues because in order to tackle this up. Dammit, we need to be about tackling it from all fronts. We need to be an early with prevention. Then there's secondary interventions and tertiary interventions and making sure that those are adequate as well. You know on the cursory side I otherwise known. It's going to be cute care side. We need adequate inpatient debts that really are not the adequate number of inpatient psychiatric beds or even a diction. That's even though our gold standard is to treat people in their community in the least restrictive environment possible that said everybody depending on the severity. Illness. They shouldn't be precluded from gaining access to acute care if they need it. My point is that there are a whole lot of different issues that people can advocate for they can advocate for criminal Justice reform, if you had supportive living supportive housing community supports in many instances, people would not have to cycle in and out of the criminal Justice system, all because of a lack of necessary supports that keeps them stable and out of the criminal Justice system in our school are so much to the done to build psychological resilience social motion learning problem solving skills stress management all early on. So that young people get the sense that the brain is not anything to take for granted that we have to say mentally. Fit..

"Speaking about the don't deny me campaign on one hand. It's it's incredible. What you're doing? And I love it. And I fully support it because as somebody who lives with mental illness. I I want more people to have the kind of care that I got into be well like like all of us on the show right now are but on the other side, it's so depressing to hear you fought for a law. You gotta law a law. Was granted. It's now the law of the land and insurance companies are like, I'll do whatever I want, and then you had to sort of go to round two, even though you. You want round one. Where will this end? Do we just keep having to? I mean, are we really going to become a country that just has to sue for every little thing because nobody has to follow the rules unless you're able to go through this long court process because the people that have to drive this people who are already sick. This is a lot. This is a lot. It's a lot, you know, not to relitigate the previous presidential election. But if we'd had someone in office who was committed to the enforcement of law and understood it, then we would have an infrastructure on the federal level that one would have educated all the fifty states in terms of their fiduciary responsibilities would have provided the resources for them to do it would've also had a much greater transparency required at the federal level. For any plan on the exchange. And by the way, any plan on the exchange is essentially every plan because all of the insurers are captured within that, you know, regulatory infrastructure. So, but but that didn't happen, obviously, where we are where we are. But you know, it's important also to keep in mind that civil rights in this country, you know, went through very much the same all, for exception of the fact that they had a March on Washington to get civil rights, and we in the mental health and addiction community have yet to get our March on Washington, we know that we've had great rallies, and that's been very important, and those rallies are increasingly in in greater numbers. But when you consider the fact that there's over twenty three million Americans and long-term. Recovery from addiction and alcoholism. And you consider the fact that there's so many more people who are living with depression, anxiety, bipolar schizophrenia. And you start adding up all the numbers. I mean, it really should be the case where we have a norm as political power. But because of the shame and statement these illnesses it really cuts into where we should be strongest and not in our numbers, and that's in our political voice. And because we have Sigmund people are living in the shadows. And by the way, all the people who are in twelve step recovery. Like me, you know, we're all in church basements, we rarely come out. So far as many of us think that it's violation of eleven tradition to be good citizens and really be public in terms of our advocacy of these things, I mean, frankly. Bill w Welson was went to congress to testify many people in the movement. Don't appreciate remember that. That was port testified. But of Senator Hughes from Iowa of south was in recovery. I'm just saying like there's a history here, and we need to take lessons from history and the best way to learn from history..

"Yeah. So I started something called parody registry dot org, which is a of the ical for people to file appeals themselves when they feel they've been wrongfully denied care, and in many instances, they really aren't sure that they've been denied care in a way that's violating the parody law. But that they're willing to file an appeal because it doesn't it doesn't seem right to them. So at parody registry dot org. You know, by the way, we've launched don't deny me dot org, which is yet you to the same landing page, and what we're really trying to do is facilitate consumers away for them to file an appeal and to know how to file the best appeal possible. But what's really important on those websites is the fact that we want to get people to be hot. Blick where wherever they feel comfortable doing. So and that is we have a hip compliant process. But what we do at the end is we asked people whether they be willing to have their claim be a matter of record for for those of us in the advocacy world to use to illustrate the rampant nihil of this type of care within our country. And frankly, as a politician, all I need is, you know, a couple of dozen cases, and that's enough for me to take to any politician in a state. It's enough for me to take to the elected attorney general in a state and say look at this. There's these cases of denial by the way, they all are focused on a denial. Of certain type, for example, they they all employ concurrent review. That's when you are in treatment. And then all of a sudden, you're insure says, you're done you don't get any more days treatment, that's kinda concurrent review. And then you then you complain. And they say, oh, we'll give you seventy two more hours. You know? That's just kind of way that they terrorize people who are in treatment. And so they're all kind of of denials. I said there's a retroactive denial. That's when you go to treatment, you think that it's being covered you find out you get back that it really isn't covered or only the first few days for covered. So what we do is really hell a person consumer has been denied care to spell that out. And then if enough of them have a very similar forms of denial, and they're all by the same insurance. But. But we need to get to a place where we're much more systematic when it comes to pushing back on these insurance companies and the best way we can do that. As advocates is to prepare our case. In other words, to do the homework for the insurance Commissioner ten for the attorney general not to extend the we have to lay it all out for them. But we just have to lay out enough to tell them that they would be neglecting their responsibility as insurance Commissioner or attorney general if they were not to investigate what we brought to them. Okay. And in my view, that's the way we get real accountability on the payer side as opposed to trying to do this with fifty thousand a hundred thousand you know, a hundred million individual. Will claims that's never gonna do it. If the insurance companies kind of Bank on the fact that all these claims are going to be done in isolation. But if you can show a pattern and a practice of denial that is in violation of the law, then you can in another words have a class action. You know, that terminology when it comes to towards you can have that against these payers, but you can let the state be the one that arbitrates that for you much like the state of New York really brought, you know, number of payers, including Blue Cross and Cigna and others into a consent decree because they were in violation of.

"You care for mental health and addiction treatment, they say that it doesn't rise to level of medical necessity or they say, oh, you can get treatment. But you know, you can't stay for more than a few days. And then you've got to go to intensive outpatient or they say like an interrupted just for a second Patrick. That was always very interesting to me, my father growing up he had physical illnesses. He was a manual laborers a truck driver so had Hasmah. So I would see the treatment that he would get. He would, you know, break something or hurt his back or whatever. And he would go to the doctor until he was better when I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I could go to the doctor for three visits or I. Could see the psychiatrist twice or I'd have six outpatient visits or a maximum of three days the the criteria for how much care I got wasn't based on whether or not I was well, it was just based on some arbitrary idea. And that's really what you're speaking about. When you talk about parody this idea that if you're diagnosed with cancer, they don't say, okay, you can see the colleges every other week for six weeks. And then you're done the end of the rainbow here for all of us is that there should be no exclusions for mental health coverage whatsoever. Because no one, you know, wants to seek mental health care if they can help it, right? This is not something that where people are trying to rack up bills because they got nothing better to do in their lives. And frankly, if you get the evidence space treatment within the mental health treatment, environment and. And frankly, that's another whole subject. You know? I think we can talk about as well because that has a lot more to do with the count ability that we need with respect to the providers. You know, what we're talking about right now are really the payers the insurance companies who really have gotten very little accountability brought to bear when it comes to their denial of treatment. But we also need to make sure that that treatment is is evidence base. But to the point that you're mentioning it's shocking that we still have this being so quick to deny these services when we know if they're good services, they can make such a profound impact on the overall health and wellbeing of the patience. Right. You don't wanna be putting prohibitions and exclusions on this care when that care is is the evidence space because when it is the space it trans? Forms people's lives. And in the process, it dramatically lowers the cost of all other areas of someone's physical health knowing that most of our healthcare costs are driven by chronic care issues. Like, I said diabetes like your father had asthma chronic pain, all kinds of gastro intestinal, you know, all kinds of stuff most of which is driven by depression, anxiety, addiction alcoholism. So if you were ever able to really not put taps if you will on the coverage like insures doing today for mental health and.

"Addiction equity act known as the mental health parody and addiction equity act, and I have to say that I wish I could take a lot of credit for the fact that I was considered as leader in mental health and addiction. But really as I just said it was by. Default because no one else really wanted. The distinction of having the words mental health and addiction next to their names as a members of congress so itsel upon me to be the champion of this piece of legislation that really sought to end the discrimination by payers when it came to them reimbursing for treatment for mental health and addiction. So the law as I said is the mental health parody and addiction equity act. It took a number of years for us to alternately get it passed, and I'm happy to say because of that law and the Affordable Care Act the ACA which kind of enshrined the parody act as far as the essential health benefits being inclusive of mental health and Addiction Care. We now have over sixty million Americans who have. Access to mental health and addiction coverage within their health plants, you know, here in California in addition to the federal parody law that you were just talking about we also have a state parody law. And I imagine that most other states do as well, how do they differ and are the state ones necessary. Oh, the state ones are absolutely crucial because frankly, the only real enforcement of parody that we're getting is at the state level, obviously because of our current administration, and the fact that they don't really believe in the healthcare. So right. And they don't obviously believe in the ACA, which is in the single greatest piece of legislation for those suffering from these Ellis's, given the fact that it covers these illnesses like nothing else that we've ever had. We really are relying upon the states to enforce this law and buying force men. I mean, it's not enough as the law says for there to be no differences in the premiums the premium cost used to be separate premium costs mental health now, that's no longer the case or used to be. Separate deductible. That's no longer the case. There's just used to be separate co pay. That's no longer the case there used to be a lower lifetime cap on insurance coverage, which means that people like myself who racked up a lot of bills early on as most people do given. The fact you still MRs affect young people predominantly, you know, you find yourself blowing through your lifetime tap, that's the lauded amount that an insurance company would allow for coverage for mental health. Of course that was outlawed this. Well, the law, but in addition to that the parody laws says whether you're inpatient in network or out patient in where core inpatient out a network or outpatient out of network or you need pharmacy benefits or emergency room benefits that all of those need to be. Be analogous or comparable. If you will to what you would receive if you had diabetes, or cardiovascular disease or cancer. What have you? And of course, we all know that you would have coverage and all of those different areas of treatments if it were a medical or surgical issue. But what's never been the case is that you could expect that that Stame level of coverage can be expected if you have a mental health or addiction issue, and by no means are we even close to that being the reality today. But it's only real to the extent that we advocate and the best places to advocate, frankly, are in the states within the insurance. Commissioners offices and within the attorneys general offices in cal-. Formula?.

Over the next say thirty six hours. When when you look at the next thirty six hours, how many people in your community did decide to go ahead and evacuate. How many are left behind? Well, what what I got into town. So Wilmington is four by four hours due east of Charlotte. And what I got into the Wednesday night. I think of struck me was how many people didn't leave. I heard estimates that roughly ten percents of Wilmington evacuated. Even though the governor's from north and South Carolina wilmington's right near the South Carolina state line with Myrtle Beach, and it's it both covers votes in South Carolina were begging them to leave like what you need to. We. We're talking. Catastrophic us potentially. And I think that s civil around only ten percent decided to vacate. Betty decided to get hotel rooms stay in Wilmington. Forget hotel is just getting out of their houses. But it it has surprised me. How many people stayed and as a result? There have been hundreds upon hundreds of rescues in terms of water rescues were there have been floods and the only way to get to these people are by votes and people being stuck in their addict for eight hours on air, eight hours at a time waiting for rescue workers to come save them. It's been it's only going to get worse because this hurricane moving expecting every rain still continuously for the next twenty four to thirty six hours. You know, one of the things you mentioned there is the water rescues. We've seen some of the video I've seen some of the video. It's incredible. How many just good Americans are risking their lives to go out and help rescue people dirt right in the middle of this. Tropical storm such hurricane. Well know what? Yes. We know that they are great Americans and the ones that do the fire departments of police departments of the emergency services. But there's a group of people. And I don't know if your listeners have heard of them, the the Cajun navy, we talk, you know, what I started this show tonight talking about how incredible the Cajun navy as they come all the way from Texas and Louisiana Alabama. And they are there. I'll let you pick it up from there. But it's amazing. They started back in two thousand five a Hurricane Katrina. They went down to Harvey they show up in this stuff. They're prepared. They've got the votes have got the gear, and they go into neighborhoods, and they give people out. Yeah. So I can tell you that. So there's a tiny little tale. A coastal town about an hour north of Wilmington called it Newburgh. And that's all these water rescues have had to have it Newburgh as as been under three four and five feet of water for a for over twenty four hours. It has been entire city five feet underwater. Well, that's where all these water rescues are taking place in that area. And I can tell you that well over half of the water rescues or from the Cajun navy, and we're talking to hundred fifty to three hundred water rescues just one tiny little town. And what I mean tardy? I mean, it is a it is a pimple of a talented so small, but they had all these everyone had to be rescued and the navy are predominantly responsible for well over half of the rest of that tiny little tail at bell. I I've spoken to some of them. And they're actually loaded up and they're all moving south. The sixty dollars towards Wilmington and to help maybe do rescuers with any of the barrier islands or here. Like, I said here locally rescuing. Because of the water damage is going to be coming over the next twenty four to thirty six hours. It's unbelievable. I really appreciate you. Stay safe. Thanks for forgiveness. Perspective of what's going on in Wilmington? We'd love to check in with the next hour as well. If you've got some time force, absolutely, Michelle. Thanks, brad. Johnson w BT our affiliate from Charlotte. He's down the road in Wilmington North Carolina where they are taking a big hit there. We'll talk to him again in the next hour. Get another update from him. All right. In the meantime, I want to get back to this other issue that we are talking about here. And that is the New York Times a little side note here they've had to apologize. Of course. No one's covering that. The issue fifty two thousand dollar curtains for Nikki Haley office that she didn't by the office of US ambassador the United Nations. Nikki Haley said the fifty two thousand our curtains installed in her New York office last year. We're not bought by her. In fact, they were bought by the Obama administration after a hit piece came out claiming that the Trump administration ordered them. That's right. The New York Times wrote a massive article about the pricey window treatments. Yesterday. And while it appeared to pin the blame on the Trump administration. They kind of got it wrong. Spokesman for Haley said she had no say in the purchase of the fifty two thousand seven hundred one dollars customized curtains the apartment, which is located in a new building just blocks from the delegation offices lease by the government and Haley is the first embassador to live in it. That's what Patrick Kennedy the State Department management official under Obama. Although the selection of the purchase of the curtains were made during the Obama administration installation did take place from March to August of seventeen while Haley was serving as the ambassador during the installation. Former secretary of State Rex Tillerson had frozen. Hiring and proposed cutting the department's budget by thirty one percent. How can you on the one hand? Tell diplomats that basic needs cannot be met and other other hand spend more than fifty thousand dollars on a customized curtain system for the ambassador to the UN. That's what a White House official in the Obama administration said of his own administration's decision. Of course that part was left out by the times. Kennedy defended the purchase, of course, claiming that it would be used for years, and it was needed for security, and quote, entertainment, again, this is the person for the Obama administration talking Kerry also said, you know, defended the purchase saying that look this is going to be used for years. So don't worry about the price tag. Okay. I bring this up just to show you yet again. I bring this up just to just again to show how this honest. The media is about these types of things. There was another article talked about the rent, the Nikki Haley was paying and how much money it was costing and how we should all be outraged and what they pay which by the way is not her decision. Just say, you know, she inherited the place that she's now living in. And of course, there's this article that came out after this. I hit piece about her curtains. There were saying that, you know, Nikki Haley is terrible person because you spend all this money, and she's wasting money, and we should be angry upset, and we should go after her and it should be. You know, everybody should just be saying. How dare you waste our tax payers dollars. How dare you waste tax payers dollars? Nikki Haley is rent is less than half of what the Obama administration officials are spending. Anybody wanna talk about that? I mean, anybody seriously. Fifty two thousand our curtains for Nikki Haley office, they weren't bothered by her. They were bought by the Obama State Department. And there was a reason why no one wrote the article then because you don't write articles. That are criticizing Barack Obama and the State Department under Hillary Clinton, that's something. You're not allowed to do. No, no. You can't do that. That's just wrong. So the New York Times spreads lies fake news about Nikki Haley, and this is why the president calls them fake news. When you've got a New York Times headline attacking the US ambassador. Extravagant curtains, even though the Obama administration order them in two thousand sixteen and it's not hard to figure this out. I mean, the first paragraph of the times goes on to attack Haley and President Trump State Department because they spent fifty two thousand seven hundred one dollars last year buying customize and mechanical curtains for the picture window and Nikki Haley office residents as embassador United Nations Justice department was undergoing deep budget cuts and had frozen. Hiring. Those are their exact words the words spent by the way is crucial because they didn't spend the money. They also by the way, went on to talk about you know, after five whole paragraph describing Nikki Haley, spectacular views that she lives in in. Her least fifty eight thousand dollars a month four penthouse with handsome, hardwood floors covering are open spaces stretching nearly six thousand square feet. Times is now I'd say are bad. Okay. So the Obama administration ordered those curtains. But you should still be angry. Nikki Haley for this. You should still be angry at Nikki Haley because well, Nikki Haley, she's a Republican, and she's a woman that works for Trump. So let's burn her house down to one eight seven seven three.
