He wasn't like on twitter at least back when now like descent. Yeah i think he is more. I think he is like informed in a way that you'd be like well. How did you know that if you haven't been scrolling around but i could also. He does like he goes the washington post new york times whilst you generally reads like the top read most shared stories. He's kind of gets it that way. She's at the atlantic. All the very barack obama type places That he gets his new from. He's also disciplined enough to go on twitter for eleven seconds. Realize it's low calorie garbage in walkaway unlike us. That's what i would imagine. I give twelve minutes a day. And i scan and see if there's anything i need to know and then i move on to more long-form stuff where it's like. I keep scrolling going like i should probably i should probably read something. That's longer than than a tweet. But what about this thing. But what about this thing. And so yeah. It's only on the airplane. That i can do the long form stuff. Yeah no. I'm the worst. 'cause i give my wife grief if she's on tick-tock talk too much then i'm like each. You're on twitter all day long. And it's just a chat room for nerds. It's really bad when you're even reading a story in the post or the times and you're like checking twitter in the middle of reading the story. That's what i'm like all right. My attention span is now nothing and this is just garbage. What i'm doing my myself. Another dumb question is the house is the congressional gym. Nice white a members love. And we're talking about this the other day. There's so many gyms you could go to in washington. Dc why does everybody end up back at the house and senate gym. So i don't know about the house jim. i heard. It's fancy my my good friend and former governor. Neil abercrombie was the chairman of the subcommittee on the jim. Come on. that's the thing and he said that he told me that you know. It made him very popular with members and he was the first person to make sure that the women's and the men's side were equally resource. Which is a big deal. I'm not I don't exercise indoors for the most part. So i don't go to the senate jim been inside of it. It's small and lovely. That's all i can tell you well on that note. I think we should wrap it up. And i don't know the first time i see steve king naked. I'm out of there now. I know anyone runs for congress. Your highest aspirations should be chair the subcommittee for the gym. That's pretty sweet. That's that's the shoes to fill senator shots. Thank you so much for coming by always next time. You're in town on a layover. Please come by the office of that time. He can dress up for dress down. I guess i will do. We'll figure out what we're all wearing. Matching up. okay.

"Leader Mikhail Gorbachev on a tour of Red Square and the spring of 1988. Behind the boy stands a blond man dressed in tourist garb with a camera around his neck who bears an unmistakable resemblance to young poutine. And so, Pete Souza put this thing out. And sure enough, it really does look like now Putin was KGB at the time. And in fact, at this time he was assigned to the Stasi, These German secret police, murderers and torturers. At that time he was assigned to Dresden. I believe in East Germany, but he could certainly have made because President Reagan was coming and they needed all hands on deck and, according to intelligence officials, everybody gathered for this photo op with Putin out there in Red Square. There were KGB and KGB families, right? As they staged all this stuff. They're communists. They lie about everything so one agent said, according to the story said, Yeah, these are all KGB families out here. And it looks like poutine slipping into the frame with Reagan and Gorbachev, you know, and he looks a little nervous, but it looks like it's him. The pointy nose face kind of thing. Strong guy, you know, for killing people more effectively and things like that. That's good stuff. That's very good stuff there. It is back to a Democrats and racism because God knows they're Racists Chapman University Chapman universities and is that a four year school Chapman University hosts racially segregated quote..

"Towards Nicole. Well, this is similar way of Obama meeting Pope Francis and Nelson Mandela and Malala Yousaf see and hugging the sandy hook families. Did you feel yourself getting goose bumps off for sure, I would say, mostly during the Reagan administration, because You know, I was a young guy just kind of basically starting out my career and suddenly in the room where it happens. The whole thing I gather is always to be around the president but scarcely to be noticed. Not like some human security cam because you're most compelling photos capture drama pathos. And sometimes just raw humanity. There's one iconic image. Of President Obama bending over near the resolute desk for Ah, five year old visitor so that the little boy could just touch his hair. What was going on. The little boy was Jacob Philadelphia, and he had come in with his family. His dad had worked for the national security staff. And he was about to leave the White House and President Obama invited the family and for keepsake photograph standing in front of the desk, the grip and grin. We call it. Jacob's mom said that Jacob had a question and Jacobs question was along the lines of And his friends have told him that his haircut was just like President Obama's and with that President Obama bent over and Jacob touched his head. It was one of those unexpected, fleeting moments. My composition is not that great. But fortunately I caught the precise moment when he did touch President Obama's head. I don't have one frame. That's how quick it happened. This wasn't like Bill Clinton playing Saxon or CDO. It was a casual, impromptu and just very touching. Instant of surrender of Presidential majesty that you were lucky enough to catch Well, I was lucky enough to catch but I've prepared myself for moments like that my whole life And when these fleeting moments happen, you have to anticipate them. Unfortunately, I didn't screw it up. Because I think the picture is important not just to that kid. But the all kids of color that they see Ah young African American boy touching ahead of the president, United States that looks like and I think that's why that picture is resonating with so many people. So many such fleeting moments near the beginning of the film, we see you during your first White House tour with Ronald Reagan. I think on his ranch in a silly exchange with the first lady, and you want us another side of the tree or what? Well for a release purposes would be better Have you doing something on my suggestion was watering the three You have two shovels. We have a change. No, please, please. Too hot. Did you get that beef? Yeah. Yeah. Huh? When you work for him, you weren't particularly caught up in politics at the time. But you also weren't a Reaganite and he was ah, Hard President to be neutral about When, for example, he was ignoring the AIDS epidemic or during the Iran Contra scandal or when he was demonizing supposed welfare Queens. Were you able to compartmentalize and just put your whatever personal political feelings you had entirely aside as you went about your business. Yeah, I think so. You know, I sort of feel that I was not as educated as I should have been about the AIDS crisis, and I think that's probably true of Reagan as well. I did think during Iran Contra scandal that he had done something wrong. But you kept your trap shut and kept on shooting, right? Yeah. During the Iran Contra scandal. I was always pushing to be in the room when it was going down. And I do think that I made some pictures during that scandal that really elevate the imagery for history. I mean, I've got that. Picture before he announces to the public that they had found that proceeds from the arms sales to Iran had been diverted to the Contras and you could see the pain. Look on everybody's faces. And then months later, when the Tower Commission made their report to him in person, and you see that anguished look on his face as John Tower concludes that Reagan in fact, did trade arms for hostages. Did his best I could for history. Under the circumstances, I'll ask you the same questions about Obama. His eight years in office did leave some things to answer for mass deportations of undocumented immigrants, prosecutions of journalists. Many extrajudicial drone strikes your body of work, not literally, but essentially has a kind of gauzy filter to it, Not unlike the Camelot vibe of the Kennedy years. It's definitely not warts and all right. I disagree. 100% tell me Well, I mean, I think if you even go through the many pictures we posted on the flicker of photo stream every month behind the scenes pictures. I think you see him anguishing about these decisions. So much so that many of the photographs that we Posted publicly on flicker where years later used out of context in attack ads by the GOP because it made him look As if he was not the Camelot that you describe. There was a bit of a paradox about him. Documentation wise. He gave you almost total access not only to his work time, but even a great deal of his family time. But Equally. He was very stingy with the press corps, not just for answering questions, but Even photo ops did that occur to you with the time The administration made it made a mistake on the very first day where they didn't allow news photographers to be president when Obama walked into the Oval Office for the first time that set people off right away. That's not my role, but I should have said something to the press office. I could only think of like a couple of two or three other times. They're in the years where they made mistakes like that. I think the complaint more was that Happen to be the photographer and president Obama happened to be the president when social media exploded and the administration took advantage of social media by using my pictures, and I think that pissed off a lot of the press corps. I want to ask you about the flipside on got to trigger you or anything. But one thing you can say about Donald Trump is that he has constantly been available to the press. He lies to us, and he calls us traitors. But He's available. But he has no Pete Souza fly on the wall of his presidency, There seemed to be hardly any candid presidential photos to document his term in office. Mommy does have a chief official White House photographer and they have three or four other White House photographers that air documenting his presidency. I have no inside knowledge of what their access is like, we don't see. Hardly any behind the scenes moments or human moments of him interacting with other people. But you're right, although he has in the last two weeks made himself available for questions, ironically, But when it fits his advantage, you do see him spouting off quite a bit, And I think you could make the argument that that diminishes the presidency to be out there every day spouting off. I could remember during the Reagan administration, where there'd be three or four or five days would go by and the press wouldn't see Reagan and I remember I ran into Helen Thomas running between my office in the Oval Office outside the press office one time. This is the U. P I correspondent who was in the White House briefing room for decades. For decades, I mean, she was considered the dean of the White House Press corps. She cornered me, and she wanted to know if I had seen President Reagan and had he had a heart attack or something. Why haven't we seen him? It'll be interesting and years to come how people reflect on Trump's press conferences and the lies that were told during them? I think it keeps the press happy that he up until two weeks ago, made himself available quite a bit. All right now this gets to the reason I said triggered in my previous question, but it gets to the hole. Raisonne des Tra Behind the way I see it. When I first met Pete, his politics were not at all evidence. You know, I always wondered what it Pete Souza. Get from President Obama, like how did he change? You know the feeling that he could no longer be this fly on the wall? That's photo Editor Alice Cabrini, who for two years was your colleague in the Obama White House in this film, talking about a new Pete Souza a transformation In you that did not go unnoticed elsewhere pieces.

"Focus features and MSNBC films with the way I see it Behind the scenes look at Presidents Obama and Reagan through the eyes of White House photographer Pete Souza. Tomorrow at 10 P.m. eastern on MSNBC. From NPR news. This's all things considered. I'm Ari Shapiro in Washington and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles. More people are voting early than ever before, way more at 2.5 weeks before Election Day, Some states are already up to a third of their total turnouts from 2016. That's being driven by absentee ballot expansion all over the country because of the pandemic and A surge of in person early voting, but not everything has gone smoothly. We've seen long lines in Georgia and Texas and tens of thousands of mistakes with mail ballots. Joining us now to talk about all of this is NPR's Miles parks who covers voting. Hey, miles high there. So just how big has the early voting this year? It's been huge, more than 17. Million people have voted already, according to this database compiled by University of Florida professor Michael McDonald, and it's hard to really overstate how unprecedented that is. You know, it's about five times as many people who had voted at the same time in the 2016 cycle. Target smart. This data firm that works with Democrats has done some analysis on the initial numbers has been significantly more Democrats than Republicans, which isn't that surprising when you consider you know the sort of rhetoric President Trump specifically is used about vote by mail, But there are also some other interesting trends. You know, we're seeing more than seven times as many African American voters at this point now, as opposed to 2016 Which seems to be driven by this increase in early voting access in states with higher black populations like North Carolina, Georgia and Virginia. That's interesting. Well, we have been seeing pictures of these long lines at many of these early polling places. Can you talk about how smoothly the vote has been going so far?

"And MSNBC films with the way I see it Behind the scenes look at Presidents Obama and Reagan through the eyes of White House photographer Pete Souza. Tomorrow at 10 P.m. eastern on MSNBC. From NPR news. This's all things considered. I'm Ari Shapiro in Washington and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles. More people are voting early than ever before, way more at 2.5 weeks before Election Day, Some states are already up to a third of their total turnouts from 2016. That's being driven by absentee ballot expansion all over the country because of the pandemic and A surge of in person early voting, but not everything has gone smoothly. We've seen long lines in Georgia and Texas and tens of thousands of mistakes with mail ballots. Joining us now to talk about all of this is NPR's Miles parks who covers voting. Hey, miles high there. So just how big has the early voting this year? It's been huge, more than 17. Million people have voted already, according to this database compiled by University of Florida professor Michael McDonald, and it's hard to really overstate how unprecedented that is. You know, it's about five times as many people who had voted at the same time in the 2016 cycle. Target smart. This data firm that works with Democrats has done some analysis on the initial numbers has been significantly more Democrats than Republicans, which isn't that surprising when you consider you know the sort of rhetoric President Trump specifically is used about vote by mail, But there are also some other interesting trends. You know, we're seeing more than seven times as many African American voters at this point now, as opposed to 2016 Which seems to be driven by this increase in early voting access in states with higher black populations like North Carolina, Georgia and Virginia. That's interesting. Well, we have been seeing pictures of these long lines at many of these early polling places. Can you talk about how smoothly the vote has been going so far? Yeah, There's clearly been some hiccups with in person and with vote by mail options, it seems like computer problems have contributed to a lot of the in person delays that people have seen photos off in Georgia. The database used to check people in was slowed down because of all of this traffic on the website. There were similar stories in Texas Houston Public Media's Elizabeth Tro Vel spoke to a voter named Renee, who spent nearly four hours in line going to three different precincts. I cry.

"NPR comes from focus features and MSNBC films presenting the way I see it an inside look at President Obama and Reagan through the eyes of White House photographer Pete Souza Friday at 10 P.m. eastern on MSNBC. It's all things considered from NPR news. I'm Ari Shapiro in Washington, and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles Judge Amy Cockney. Barrett has spent a second day answering questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee. Hour after hour, the federal appeals court judge bobbed and weaved when Democrats pressed her. They asked how she might rule on the affordable care act, same sex marriage or a contested presidential election. Democrats argue President Trump's nominee for the High court should recused herself from a case involving a contested election. Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz serves on the Judiciary Committee and when I talked to him earlier today, he said, the threat of a contested election going to the Supreme Court is one reason Judge Barrett should be confirmed. Let me be clear. One of the reasons why the Senate is moving to confirm a parent before Election Day is because this election there's a very high chance. Election litigation of a disputed election brought by Biden brought by Trump possibly brought by boat. And were the seat to be vacant. Where there simply to be eight justices on the court, there is the possibility that the court could decide 44 a four for court. Lacks the authority to make any decisions that that creates a constitutional crisis. It's not good for the country, so I actually think it would be a disservice to the country. For justice Barritt not to rule on the case, not because I wanted to rule one way or the other. I have no idea what the election dispute would be This. This is where Democratsview judges is essentially political operatives. I don't want a judge who who will rule for my candidate. What a judge will follow the law. If I may let me shift you to another issue. Two of the biggest topics in this hearing have been abortion and the affordable care act. Republicans often argue that lawmakers should decide on the legality of abortion, not the courts. By that measure is your desire to see the Supreme Court overturned the affordable care act inconsistent since Congress could have repealed the health care law and didn't Well, it is interesting if you assess the questioning, at least from the first day of questioning. And Democrats that did not lay a glove on Andi seem to have made a conscious decision. Not even really, to try. And so most of what they talked about was attacking president from And it was healthcare nor Obama care, and they talked a great deal about there. Election message that they're running against the president that they argue that people with preexisting conditions are going to lose their coverage. Now that argument is not very credible, given that every single member of the Senate all 100, son of theirs agree we're going to protect preexisting conditions. That's a legislative question. We're going to protect preexisting condition. But if it's a legislative policy question, why Republicans supporting this case that's coming up November 10th that would gut the affordable care act when in fact The Congress could itself have repealed and replaced as President Trump you and many other Republicans often promised to do I believe that Congress can should and I hope will repeal and replace Obamacare and those of the right debates on the question of the particular lawsuit that is pending that there are Legal questions of what's called severability of one piece of the statute versus another. I don't have a particular view on the legal merits of that case. The Trump Administration is also supporting those Republican attorneys general who are seeking Tio overturn the affordable Care act. You know what I find interesting or I recognize that the Central Democratic talking point of the hearing Wass obamacare for existing conditions because that's their Democratic Campaign narrative for November. But what I found most important from the hearings yesterday. Was that the Democrats did not sound their position. Supporting justices who would take away religious liberty who would take away free speech. You would take away the second number right now, it seems like the Senate is in an arms race. Republicans blocked confirmation hearings for Merrick Garland in an election year four years ago and are moving quickly to confirm Judge Barret. Now you have warned that if Democrats take control, they might try to expand the number of seats on the Supreme Court. Something that Biden and Harris of neither endorsed nor ruled out. Do you see a way to avert this partisan one upsmanship or is either party with power inevitably just going to stick it to the other party in whatever way they can. Look, there is no doubt the battle's over spring court nominations and judicial nominations. They're getting more heated and more pitch and and there's a reason for that. The tea Party's had very, very different visions for what kind of judges they want. And you know the framers of the Constitution. They describe the judiciary as quote the least dangerous branch because it tonight and make laws nor enforce laws. It's simply a beauty, Claytor decides disputes. Well, that's saying that really started the 19 sixties and 19 seventies, when the court began deciding more and more policy issues that ought to be in the legislative arena that has been a result of the very consistent desire of the left. Not to rely on the Democratic process not to convince their fellow voters of the narrative their position but rather to have five unelected lawyers wearing robes. The Korean answer for the country. I think it sounds like you're saying there's no way to step back from the brink and avert this one upsmanship, and in fact, whichever party with power is just going to try to stick it to the other. Is that what you actually think they're quite quite different in? I don't want to see judges on the bench. You are enforcing policy outcomes I support that's not the court's job. I'm looking for the court to get out of the way and follow the law and let the elected legislatures which are accountable to the voters. Decide policy issues. That's Texas Senator Ted Cruz, a Republican who sits on the Judiciary Committee. His new book is one Vote away. How a single Supreme Court seat can change History, Senator. Thank you for speaking with us. Thank you. Very good. This is a year when the US often feels really divided. So NPR decided to ask people how they're feeling about a symbol that's meant to stand for all of us the American flag. More than 1800. People responded to our informal survey.

"Pete Souza. Friday at 10 P.m. eastern on MSNBC. It's 607 This is morning edition from NPR News. I'm Rachel Martin and I'm Steve Inskeep Supreme Court nominee Amy Cockney. Barrett is passing through a time honored ritual at her confirmation hearing before the Senate senators have a lot of questions, and Barrett is working to be a CE limited as she can in her answers. Lawmakers ask 11 hours worth of questions. Yesterday she faced questions from Democratic senators on abortion rights and also on health care. If confirmed this month, she would take her seat in time to hear a challenge to the affordable care act. In November, Senator Chris Coons asked how she would approach that case. I am standing before the committee today, saying that I have the integrity To act consistently with my oath and apply the law as the law to approach the A and every other statute without bias, and I have not made any commitments or deals or Anything like that. She was nominated by a president who has vowed to get rid of the affordable care act. NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis is part of our team covering the hearings. Soo Good morning. Good morning. What was your impression from 11 hours? Well, I think for Republicans Tuesday went really well. Barrett was very poised. She was very unflappable. There was no sort of unpredictable moments, and I think that they feel very confident in this nomination going forward for Democrats. There was a lot of frustration. You know, they tried over the course of this 11 hours to get her to reveal something about how she might rule on some of these most contentious issues. But she really held two standard to form of previous justices and saying repeatedly, I cannot give you any indication on any matter that could become before the court because that would simply be improper. Now. There's a real tension here because you have a judicial nominee who doesn't want to reveal some bias or become ceased to be impartial by saying how They might rule on a future case. But at the same time you have senators who want to know something about how the nominee thinks because they're trying to evaluate the nominee. That's the theory anyway. How did that Balance play out when it came to the affordable care act Well, that issue is obviously the most acute right now because the court is going to hear a challenge to obamacare days after the election complicate that by President Trump, who is publicly and repeatedly said he wants judges who will vote to throw it out. So Barrett was asked about this a lot, and this is what she most often said. I'm not here on a mission to destroy the affordable care act. I'm just here to apply the law and adhere to the rule of law. She said this over and over that she had no preconceived notion on any issue and that none of her personal views whatever cloud her judgment when it comes to the law. Is she an especially tricky position here because of what you said, because she was nominated by a president who has been so public about exactly what he says he wants. Yes, And I think that's why the issue of recusal came up again on Tuesday whether she would recused on the issue of Obamacare or on potentially on the election outcome. She would not say whether she would recuse herself, She said that was a legal process that she would have to confront if and when it happened. But she did have a very pointed moment where she sort of pushback at the committee and said that I want this committee to know I have more integrity than to be in her words upon and deciding the outcome of an election. I guess we should underline why it is that people would even be asking that question. The president of the United States has said that he expects a Supreme Court challenge over the election results, and he has said he wants this justice to be there for that ruling. This is a thing, he explicitly said. It is, and she made very clear throughout those 11 hours that she is an independent justice that she's never had any conversations with anyone ever on how she would rule on anything. Now she is replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who was a great liberal voice of the court. She is more conservative. But what does that mean for the right to an abortion? Roe vs Wade The ruling from 1973. She was asked about this a lot and probably in her most telling exchange came with Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, who asked her if she thought Roe v. Wade was a quote. Super precedent decision that sort of so ingrained in society. You can't even fathom overturning it The best example of that. Being brown versus Board of Education, which desegregated America's schools, and this is what Barrett said. As Richard Fallon from Harvard, said Roe is not a super precedent because calls for its overruling have never ceased. But that doesn't mean that Rose should be overruled. It just means that it doesn't fall on the small handful of cases like Marbury versus Madison and Brown vs the board that no one questions anymore. Now she did obviously say there that Roe is precedent and that she will follow precedent. But there's a lot of wiggle room there. More questioning today. What can we expect? Well, there will be shorter rounds, which is probably good news for any gummy bear it. They will be 20 minute rounds for senators the Senate It's the last day we'll hear from her directly. The Senate's going to go into closed session after questioning to review her FBI background search..

He became a freelance photojournalist, eventually landing at the Chicago Tribune. So you think maybe that this would happen again once Obama's term was over, but no He has become a bit of a photo columnist or a photo opinion journalist. His instagram feed is full of pictures with pointed captions, usually striking a contrast between the 44th and 45th president.

Why was that? A deal breaker for you? Well, I think if you don't make that pictures of what's happening, I'm saying you have to have Actors and without actors.

And there's like eleven years between the third and the fourth worth child. Susan was often tease. She was an accident now. Her response was I was a bonus huck was an FBI agent. And he had received a letter of congratulations for the birth of his daughter. Susan that was signed by the FBI Director J Edgar Hoover as an adult. Susan kept him framed glitter on a wall in her home yes. She grew up in Missouri where her older sister. Anne was responsible for baby sitting her quite a bit but as you got older her and decided it was fun to hang out with her baby sister. She was an easy going child and very affectionate with their family so an sometimes took sue along with her or even under dates. And it wasn't a problem you know at least not for.

Souza would go to her nephew soccer games and she had shopped the Debbie on the weekends she left to shop for clothing and and she dressed nicely so she set up an exchange with your friends and Murillo so that they ought quadruple their wardrobes by sharing so in nineteen eighty seven. Sue took took a position with southwestern Bell Corporation in Saint Louis her position and the people she worked among their lead her into a more glamorous life if she started attending charity Events Dinner Parties and Gallery openings and she was happy to be back living near her friend Sandy. They began spending more and more time together having lunch taking aerobics classes which was a big thing at the time she was also reunited with her niece Kristin during this time they were only a few years apart and became good friends so they went out on the weekend nights and sue was happy to pay kristen's way because Sumeida good it. Salary and Kristen was still struggling but a suge close to thirty. She began to worry about finding a partner and having a family. She told a French French. She wanted to have kits and she'd like to stay home and raise them while loving husband would work to support them and they live in a nice suburban house and and then she met Rick Mcfarland and he seemed to fit the bill of the Kinda guy she wanted at least to begin with. Yeah so rick was the second son of Dick and and Mona McFarland of Kirkwood Missouri. When he is a young kid the family moved to Saint? Louis he grew up in webster groves with his two brothers. David David and done in high school. He is a big water polo player and he worked on the staff of the school newspaper. He went to southwest South West Missouri State University in Springfield after high school but had difficulty concentrating so while he was here his diagnosed with attention deficit disorder and put on medication. And with the mets he was able to maintain a B average so he graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration nation and got a job with stockbrokerage company. Shearson Lehman. I did pretty well. There drove a beamer. Had a carriage Charles lived in an upscale port town right so from just hearing that you'd say Oh this is a pretty great guy. Why would you because he's got a BMW BMW? Well it seems like a good prospect. He's got a job right. He's having heard anything. Says he's a jerk right. That's what I'm saying but you know like everybody else. He did have issues but he was pretty good at hiding them for most people. He did get in trouble one time in college for stealing but the charges were dismissed. One of his former dates said that rick made her very uncomfortable after they had two dates his because she told him she didn't want to see him anymore but he persisted calling her to the point where she was afraid of him and then she caught him hiding in the bushes outside of her house stalking getting her concern. Yes but of course. Sued doesn't know about any of this right and sue and Rick had actually attended the same high school all but they didn't really meet each other until they bumped into each other at a party in Saint Louis. Rick was much quieter than Su so they seemed like kind of unlikely unlikely couple when they began dating but to sue she felt like she hit it off with him again. Not not to demean sue. But we've already talked about how she's hitting thirty and she's thinking like time is running out so maybe she settled for something not quite the top of her list list. Yeah that's what a lot of people close to her. Actually thought bird. No he review would do in a pinch enough. I'd go that far but I guess she didn't seem like she was head over heels like he was you know her prince charming but thought he would do you would do when he seemed like a nice stable guy but he wasn't nearly as clever or witty. Assu you know sue was really fun but you know. Rick seemed like he could be a good match for her. She could be the outgoing one and he could keep her grounded but still sandy and kristen thought that sue probably was settling a bit with Rick just because she wanted to start a family and she was getting being older

"pete souza" Discussed on Breaking Character

"I'm Paul Mao dot dot dot opening banter, yes. Yeah. Hi, paul. Hi, mary. Yes, he is. And that's different from any other Tuesday by nothing about not Arjun. Not at all right. Well luckily joining us this stadium. Yeah. What our old friend Tammy Miller, deputy director of the art center them back to, you know, are you? I'm a little scared. But if. You've been on this enough. Not to be scared. Go on now over the. Now you have a very cool exhibition opening this Friday, featuring the work of former White House for Pete Souza. Let's start there. What can you tell us about it? It is a super cool exhibition. So Pete Souza was the White House for tire for, for both Ronald Reagan, and Obama. And so these are photographs from both of those presidencies, and we're showing fifty six photographs total and they're really great. So, so what he's done for half of the show. He's done these dip IX where he'll show images of Reagan golfing, and Obama golfing Reagan in the motorcade Obama in the motorcade. So he shows he's two presidents who had very different views and policies and histories to their presidencies, but he'll show them side by side doing very similar activities shows them in the Oval Office. You know both contemplating what they're doing. So he shows sort of shared. Humanity shared actions shared just similarities between these two men, different parties, two very different time periods in very similar very difficult job. Absolutely. And so, you know, pizza is he's really trying to get at the integrity of both of the individuals and the humanity of both of the individuals. So, you know, I think what's so important about this exhibition is that we live in such polarized polarizing times. And he's taking two opposing parties to put presidents who is, you know, be like, in disliked, heavily by different individuals. And he's showing their shares their shared commonalities, which I think is really beautiful. Yeah. I think the thing is really fascinating to me. I was leave from, you know, my former career in print journalism is, you know, he has a photo journalism, background and. These spent thousands and thousands of hours with bus these presents. In public in personal situations. So he was able to really capture these candid moments. I mean it has a definite but of journalism quality to it. He tells just about some of the some of the images that struck you when. Either when the exhibition came in or when you were just working looking at this as something to bring to the Grassle. Yeah, I mean, one of the things that I like is he start to think about the private moments of the presidency when you're looking at these photographs? So there's a picture of Ronald Reagan and Nancy Reagan, and there at this ranch in Maryland. It's a presidential ranch and ensues talks about how every Saturday that they could the Reagan would go to this ranch, and they would go horseback riding together. But what people didn't know is that they would sneak off of the property and go to the public parks, on horseback, without telling the secret service, you know, and they just wanted their time together their freedom away from the spotlight. And so, so some of those images and the image that everybody's seeing of Obama and Michelle Nago night, there in like a freight elevator and you got the service lined up along the sides of the wall, and they're just having a special moment together where he's looking at her in the eyes and, and you think about you think about privacy and you think about how much. These people are scrutinized, how much they're in the limelight, all the time, and for Sousa to be sensitive to that. But also to capture these really enduring moments early impressive about like how that works for him. Does he spend every waking moment with these people does he just get called out? He does every make. But he's I don't know. I mean exactly but he does talk about, you know, trying, he makes sure that he is capturing these personal moments. And so you talk about it with Obama that, you know, he definitely needed in wanted to get photographs of Obama with his children, but also want to respect this time with this children. It'd be difficult. You know, and the president's you know, each laid out their own little boundaries with him. You know, this is okay. This is not. Okay. And so, so he has to be really respectful of, of the president's obviously, and sort of no one to turn aside and walk out of the room or went to be present. Yeah. Yeah. Into. Tell us how this came to you this exhibition in what was it about it? That made you decide. It was. Yeah. Fun to show it here in at the causal is fairly well known photographer. Photojournalist Bataga for and he's done a lot of interviews. And he's published a book recently. And so, so couple, I think it was actually probably two years ago. Now, our executive director Julia Orly came in and she's attainment has just listening to NPR, and there's this really great interview with Pete Souza on there. Wouldn't it be great if we had a Pete Souza exhibition as like that'd be fantastic? And so, I just, you know, file them in the back of my head and a few months later, I thought, you know what I know a company that puts together exhibitions, specifically photography. I'm just gonna call them. The hey do you have a Pete of exit, you know? And I did our art circulating exhibitions and they said, we're putting it together right now. We don't even have a checklist yet. But we actually are, and this is what it's going to be. It's gonna be his photographs of Reagan Obama. And I was like this is so perfect. Them. Yeah. I mean I was like sinus up on the list so that we can bring this year. So, and I loved that it wasn't because I was thinking, well, we can't just do an exhibition of Obama photographs, you know, like we need something a little more universal little more broad unless pointed. And so the fact that they did the Reagan Obama pictures together was just perfect. Yeah, you know, and then you said they're fifty six. Yes. Yeah. And would've you decided to pair with it in, in the art, we have an pairing with this one, actually. So Norwood Viviana is a glass artist who lives in Michigan and teaches at grand valley state university, but he shows throughout the world. I've seen his work at the Renwick in this Sonian in DC, and he did a project called manufacturing cities. So, so Norwood looks at post-industrial American cities and he's interested in. In the rise and fall of these cities. He started looking at their population charts and data, and he literally blows in glass, these glass objects that reflect the rise and fall of populations in these cities. So you get these really beautiful vase like, you know, objects that started very small at the bottom, you see them, get wider as they grow up. And then you see post industrial America they start to taper and again in decline. Right. So he's done twenty four cities and the way that he displays it is. He'll put the name of the city on the wall behind it with time line. And then the object hanging in front of it. So you see how that how objects relates to history and the different years, and the data, so he's like he's literally creating visual illustrations of data, you know, through blown glass and it includes a Flint. It includes Detroit, and it includes Grand Rapids in, in this project. So, so I love that. It's a way of looking at American history. That will pair alongside the Sousa exhibit, as well of the president Merican. Yeah. I live in, as you know, I love Pataki exhibits to there's something about capturing moment like that, that, as always impressed me, and, and I'm starting to remember, it's you. At least try to do what at least one dark fee exhibited you season day that we've had. Oh, gosh. Migrant mother. Her name. I got another photographers named my head. But we've done. Yeah. We've done some really wonderful attacker fake. That's awesome..
