This Weekend Marks One Year After Pittsburgh Synagogue Attack
"This weekend marks the one year anniversary of the shooting at the tree of life car Gatien in Pittsburgh it's also the second annual show up for Chabad on the weekend right after the shooting we at J. C. encouraged Jews and our allies around the world to go to synagogue and show up for shut it became the largest demonstration of solidarity with the Jewish people in world history this year as we mark the tracks nick anniversary we hope you'll show up for Chabad again on this weekend October Twenty Fifth and twenty sixth head to AJC dot org slash show up for Chabad to learn more Manja who did you chat with this week Avi Mayor the Managing Director of Global Communications for AJC who spearheaded an unprecedented survey of American Jewish you too about anti-semitism how about you for my interview I really zoomed in on Pittsburgh and spoke with Jeff Finkelstein the president and CEO of the Jewish Federation in Pittsburgh so let's dive right in and hear those conversations now Sunday October twenty seventh will mark exactly one year since the deadly shooting at Pittsburgh is tree of Life Congregation we spoke with Jeff Finkelstein President and CEO of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh to get a sense of how Pittsburgh is doing one year out jeff thank you so much for joining us thanks for asking me to do this now we're almost exactly one year out from the attack that Jews US All across America felt in our own way but the victims were in Pittsburgh so I should start by asking how is the Jewish community in Pittsburgh doing so I think you're actually starting with the right question the answer's complicated and complex because when we talk about the community were all victims and there are different levels of victims obviously the families who lost loved ones the people who were injured those who are in the synagogue but escaped and saw the shooter people in the parking lot the Jewish community of Squirrel Hill the general community of Scroll Hill the Jewish community of Greater Pittsburgh Etcetera and so there were all these rungs and I think if you ask representatives of each of them on different days you'll get a different an answer So the real answer in one word is it depends you just reminded me of the poem that you might be familiar with called the order of the bomb by you who to buy it's a famous poem by famous Israeli poet and it's too long to read into the record here maybe we'll link to it in the notes but in it he basically talks about the concentric circles of you know he's speaking of course about a bombing in Israel but he says the diameter of the bomb mhm was thirty centimeters but the range of the people who had hit and the people who were affected by that and the people who cared about that further and further ends by saying and I won't even mention the Howl of orphans that reaches up to the throne of God and beyond making a circle with no end and no god which is perhaps deeper than either is intended to go there but you're certainly right to point out that the attack took place in one location but it was felt everywhere it definitely has ripple effects by the way e yes I was my professor at the Hebrew University when I was there for my junior year and I actually don't remember studying that home but I'm sure I did at one point uh now going to have to go back and re read it you know and I can speak personally there were days where I feel more than others as we approach the one year marker and I'm looking at some of the drafts of videos that are going to be used I ended up in tears and and other your time's I'm fine when the attack happened in Powei that retraumatize people in the community including people like may so I just think they're good days is there a bad days and I'll end this part just by saying that one of the blessings in my professional work has been getting to know especially the victims families who were closest to the incident they are truly remarkable wonderful strong inspiring people that's that's that's beautiful a year ago so when this happened Pittsburgh became a mechanism for antisemitism in America right it became a kind of shorthand when many people today say Pittsburgh they don't mean the city on the allegheny river they mean the place where an anti Semite attacked a synagogue and that for you it's home right it's where you raised your kids it's where you work and perhaps not only where you go to work but it's the community that you really help to Lee it has it been jarring disconnect between the city people talk about in the one that you live in it's actually interesting I just I wrote a piece and I haven't done anything with it yet it on this topic specifically because I really might even be anger that I feel when people referred do what happened here as Pittsburgh they say we have to remember Pittsburgh Yeah and when I what I want them to know about Pittsburgh is that this is an incredible unique Jewish community this is a place that's growing with close to fifty thousand Jews today that's getting younger with millennials going into our city because of the increase in eds and meds higher education medical work and high tech in general and it is is and I always state this without actually ever researching it but it never stops me it is the last major urban center Jewish community in North America outside of New York every other Jewish comed- that I know of the major community has moved out of the city itself we are still saying entered in the city of Pittsburgh with the diversity of the Jewish community there it is an incredible place and that's when it comes to the Jewish communities what Pittsburgh it should mean and when it comes to being just a city this is the city that built America it had the third most fortune five hundred companies in America after New York and Chicago for a number of years it literally built America with its steel and those are the things that people need to remember about Pittsburgh this week AJC released the findings of a new survey of American Jews feelings about antisemitism and in the survey we found that a quarter of American Jews say that they avoid certain aces events or situation out of concern for their safety as Jews forty-seven percent report that Jewish institutions with which they are affiliated have been targeted by antisemitic threats graffiti or attacks and more than half of American Jews report having police and or private guards posted outside of their institutions. What has the hardening of Jewish communal spaces look like in Pittsburgh so just to take it back prior talks over twenty seventh year and a half before we hired a Jewish community security director at the Federation to start looking at that and his work save lives on Tober Twenty-seventh we we know that from people who survived in twenty four hours after the shooting took place we convened all of our Jewish institutions for briefing with our security director FBI police local politicians and talked about what was going on in the community and we at the federation made the Vision we hired armed guards throughout the Jewish community for the next four weeks we paid for it and the whole idea was to build resilience we didn't want people so scared of coming into our Jewish institutions forty eight hours after the shooting the largest Jewish preschool which is located at JC and Squirrel Hill all but one family showed up that's what we were aiming for and yes facilities have been physically hardened and there are addition thousands of new personnel for security at many of them as well someone asked me about this earlier today and you know has it has on an impact on people my own synagogue I was just there for Simpler Toronto Media Sarit I know the armed guard the people who come a lot we know oh that guard he is not Jewish he wishes you Chabad Shalom on Chabad and hugs them on the holiday it's not jarring it's comforting actually for most people I think and he's almost a member of the community and it's really it's been beautiful I think that's the way a lot of the institutions have tried to deal with the addition of security personnel now the tree of life congregation where the shooting took place last year issued a statement just last week too it's it's New Vision for the synagogue building a new mission for that institution can you tell us more about that before I answer the question I wanted just makes are we make one point that it was the tree of life building where the attack took place and that building house three congregation right tree of life New Light Endorse Hadasha and I I know you know that Steffi but I wanna make sure your listeners know that it's really important that people realize that so they've been talking about this for several months now with different parties that might be interested in co locating and collaborating on the site there's just been one initial meeting with the group I know that because we at the federation help convene that first meeting and there are a lot of details to be worked out think the congregation tree of life itself the owner of the building has been very public especially Rabbi Myers and there president that they are committed to re opening on that site in some way what it looks like exactly I think we'll take some time but the idea that Jewish life will be can you on that corner in Squirrel Hill I think is definitely is key to their thinking I just WanNa close by asking You Jeff how are you going to be spending the day I'm sure you're going to be on call and and working throughout the what will you be doing to commemorate next week so the day has been planned there's been a group that's been meeting from about the third week after the shooting they've been meeting every Thursday and that group is convened by actually part of the federal government with representatives of the three impacted congregations it's the Jewish Federation are Jewish community center or Jewish family and community service this is another local nonprofit called the Center for victims and a couple of official representatives of the victims families themselves and they have put together the framework of what will be happening that day my federation team is the one that's actually done the heavy lifting to make it all happen and that's what I'll be participating in starting at eleven am we have volunteer activities we have slots for slightly over eight hundred people as of today we're well over seven hundred are already filled in the ideas that we're going to make the world a better place in the name of those lives we lost very traditional Jewish way to do it at two o'clock the next traditional Jewish way to remember those who have lost will be tower study and I I think we're approaching four hundred people now registered for that with lots of different teachers representing all the different streams of Judaism which is I think the way we function in Pittsburgh working together and then at five o'clock will be a large community gathering to be run about an hour or so and most of that again centered around those we lost everything that's happening that day is victim centered and trauma informed because it's the local incident in Pittsburgh whereas the rest of the country that are doing things for them it's not their neighborhood per se and so that's how I'll be spent in my day is going to each of these things and being with our community well jeff our thoughts will be with you as you do that thank you so much for joining us on people at the todd thanks EFI

Poll: About a third of Americans approve of how Trump handled El Paso and Dayton shootings
"Kerry dan whether it's from history or from fiction. If if you're a student of the presidency you probably have a very good sense of how much the american psyche yearns for leadership in times of stress or national tragedy the day we celebrate that is fictional president thomas a with moore played by bill pullman in the movie independence day but in real life presidents have also all too often been called upon to make stirring speech. Is this not to fight. Aliens butts to bring together a country. That's grieving and confused often at some of the worst moments in the country's history. Remember george w bush with the bullhorn after nine eleven franklin delano roosevelt and the day that will live infamy ronald reagan after the challenger disaster faster and barack obama singing amazing grace after the charleston church shooting those are some of the few times in recent decades that partisanship has really really and truly been set almost entirely aside in our latest n._b._c. news wall street journal poll just thirty six percent of americans said they approve of president donald trump's handling of the shootings in el paso in dayton and that's not much better than he did in the wake of the pittsburgh synagogue shooting and and it's only a tiny bit better than his approval rating after hurricane maria hit puerto rico it is better than his approval rating for his handling of charlottesville arlit still only one in five americans said at the time that they approved of how trump handled the unite the right rally and the ensuing violence in charlottesville worlds fill almost exactly two years ago and here's a reminder. This is not really normal. It's not normal in american history for a president to only have a third third of americans are so approving of their reactions in the wake of a huge national events or tragedy sure i mean bush enjoyed sky-high. Hi hi approval ratings after nine eleven and almost eighty four percent of americans supported bill clinton's response to the oklahoma city bombing but also even after after hurricane katrina which is one of the most devastating parts of george w bush's presidency and one that made him particularly polarizing even after that advent still half of americans said they approved of his reaction to the hurricane at the time so trump is unusual in how americans have reacted to his response to national tragedies and when you take those numbers and you combined them with everything else that we know about public views of the president you get a very muddy muddy picture like wild majority disapproves of his handling of things like charlottesville trump is still enjoying some of the highest approval of his presidency when it comes the economy which is great news for the president but you might ask what is the most powerful thing when it comes to the two thousand twenty election what trump means jeans for americans wallets or something more holistic. That is the million dollar question but here's one clue from the data that our pollsters crunch that we noticed this weekend there are a total of nine percent of registered voters in this poll who say they like trump on the economy but they disapprove of overall for all and when those people were asked if they support trump for reelection or would rather vote for a democrat in twenty twenty three quarters said they would prefer for a democrat which is probably not great. If you're the current resident of the white house now for the record we did not aw test the favorability or any other kind of measures of president thomas a whitmore played by bill pullman independence day but i would love of deceased some head to head data with him versus the fictional presidents played by harrison ford and air force one and morgan freeman in deep impact those those would be some interesting cross tabs. That's a lead for us. If you'd like to hear more this free audio briefing you can always download us on your favorite podcast app <music>.

The Motors of nine people at church in Charleston in two thousand fifteen and the deaths of six people at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin. In two thousand twelve Jeff gays has more on this as the president weighs in in New York today heavily armed police. Officers stood watch outside a mosque, even though US law enforcement officials are not aware of any imminent threat. What investigators have seen a steady rise in right wing extremism. John. Miller's deputy police Commissioner at the New York police department or seeing an increase in the propaganda. Again, when we look at their propaganda. They are borrowing propaganda techniques from other terrorist groups, ISIS inspired followers online. And now white supremacist are doing the same for right attacks. In Europe jumped forty three percent between two thousand sixteen and two thousand seventeen in the US right wing extremists were linked to at least fifty murders last year. That's a thirty five percent increase over two thousand seventeen I would say the majority of it is propagated online. In fact, I this morning after the attacks. I was seeing celebrations of the attacks online on the anti Muslim hate sites. It's really disgusting. Just last month Coast Guard Lieutenant Christopher Hasson was arrested after prosecutors said he was stockpiling weapons for an attack to fuel a race war in October Robert Bowers killed eleven and a Pittsburgh synagogue. He had posted anti-semitic messages online leading up to the attack. Alleged shooter in New Zealand mentioned Bowers in his seventy four page manifesto as well as Charleston church killer, Dylann roof alive, streamed, his attack in an effort to keep the cycle of violence going all of these guys watch they watch the reaction. They watch the tactics of those that went before them, and we ought to acknowledge that there is a rise in sort of nationalism around the world at the White House.

"USA today. He's got a fascinating piece entitled ten days. Four hate crimes. The parallel paths of four angry men who terrorized America ours. This is a deep dive give us kind of some of the takeaways here, Rick as you were pulling this all together, Gordon, as you recall in that period, right before the election in which much of the nation seem to be having kind of a nervous breakdown just over politics. You had within the space of ten days. These four hate crimes coming to light. You had the arrest of the pipe bomber you had the invasion of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting. There. You had a guy who killed to African Americans in cold blood seemingly at random at Kroger's outside a little and you had a guy at a invaded the yoga studio in Tallahassee and killed two women one eight crime right after the next. So we wondered what was was there any common? Analogy and similarity between these these four men, and it seemed there were for instance, each of them nurtured a long standing grievance for for the synagogue shooter. He was an anti Semite type bomber hated the political enemies as President Trump. Kroger shooter was a racist seemingly and the man who invaded the yoga studios a longtime. He dated girls since the Keesing. He got in his eighth grade home economics class. So they did have that deep grievance in in common. And and there are other things as well. You said to this type of hate criminal differs from one on which criminologists focused in the late twentieth. Century weekend, haters explained that geologists criminologists Northeastern University studied hate crimes in the Boston area to at the end of the twentieth century nine hundred ninety s going into the nineteen eighties. And they found that the predominant type was kind of a Saturday night of. Hey, criminal young groups of young men with no really deep prejudices who were basically out in to get a kind of a sick kick by beating up a minority group member and didn't always matter. What minority group they sort of was their way of bonding building the group strength by picking on despised other. But it didn't really matter much, and they sort of went on with their lives, and they didn't they weren't committed ideologue. Well, we've seen since nine eleven though is is the sort of people like like we saw striking before the election or long-term haters. They have a very specific grievance. They they nurture it their online hearing more of the same from other people job a point that they feel that they're on a mission in this seems to push them over the edge into actually committing spectacular forma violence as opposed to a beating somebody up on a Saturday night. We're speaking with Rick Hampson USA today, national correspondent, he's piece entitled ten days. Four hate crimes. The parallel paths of these four men he profiles here. What about trying to catch this earlier and address it before you know, it reaches that point where there's turning back, right? And that of course, when you try to try to look at these guys lives that would be the that would be the gold standard. If you could if you could sort of have some way of saying well here the elements of the of the type of crime is what to look.

"For three more of the victims of the deadliest attack on the American Jewish community ever committed on US soil, the suspect in this weekend's massacre in that Pittsburgh synagogue, pled not guilty today to forty four felony counts is pleading not guilty. He could have pled guilty come to sort of sort of plea agreement specifically maybe in an effort to try to avoid the death penalty. But he's pleading not guilty. And he told the judge today that he wants a jury trial, and we will see how that works out for him in the court system a lot of things could happen. But presumably at that jury trial. He's thinking at this point that he'll be able to mount what all of these guys fantasize about when they see themselves as justified righteous killers defending the white race. Presumably he will want to use his jury trial to make a public argument in court that he thinks will persuade the country into rising up for a race war. Right. Make his public argument in court for why his murder of all these mostly elderly Jews in Pittsburgh was necessary. And even patriotic right? He'll presumably wanna make that public case before the jury. That's what these guys always want to do. And we know that he wants to make that argument publicly because he made that argument at length over a period of weeks and months online before he finally went ahead and loaded guns. And did it. The suspect in the Pittsburgh massacre waxed in eloquent and in all caps for months in age-old clan, and skinhead style that the Jews are out to destroy white people by promoting immigration. So as to dilute the white race to dilute white, racial, purity to undermine white racial majorities weaken the country by making it less white, right? That's the that's the white nationalist connection. Right. That's the connection. They draw between the be afraid of the terrible terrifying. Diseased immigrant hordes coming in and the Jews are probably paying for it argument. Those are two halves of the same argument, the racial purity people the white nationalist people. They have always connected. Those two things the immigrant hordes are coming here to dilute our racial, purity and undermine white power in America and the Jews are arranging it because the Jews are out to destroy the white race. That's that's there are. Argument, and it has been as far back as you can count. That's why the Pittsburgh massacre suspect was ranting about the caravan of migrants coming up from Central America. And also simultaneously ranting about the need to kill the Jews to stop that invasion that he was so afraid of. And that was his argument for why you said he had to do it. He pled not guilty in court today. But that is what he's already pled online as his justification for this past weekend massacre..

"Not guilty pleas from the alleged Pittsburgh synagogue shooter. Full story at ten thirty on KOA NewsRadio. Okay. Once again, we have a political morning. Consult Paul more people blame the media for dividing the country van blame Trump. Okay. At means. Trump is on a roll here that means Trump focusing on the Trump hotel anybody fighting back against the media is the only chance he's got. He's got ninety two percent negative coverage from the combined mainstream media. He's got no choice but to fight back. And he's the only Republican who ever has. And it is one of the reasons why he is so appreciated loved and adored. But let's dig further into this whole notion of America being divided because the media and with the help some prominent Republicans to created the impression with millennials that America was not divided during Obama's two terms in office. We know that polling data showed a divided America. When Obama was elected, but young voters were led to believe that all was well for Obama's eight years in office. They've been lied to about it. They've been they've been told this is before they were old enough to pay close attention. They've been told in class in school by the media that everybody loved each other that these divisions in America relatively new in their brought about by Trump. Ever told the economy was good enough the world loved Obama. Do you? Remember all that crap. The world loved Obama. Remember all of the elementary school kids singing songs to our dear leader, the media loved the Obamas. I mean, they were just per faction in every way Hollywood loved Obama. That's important too. Young skulls mush Hollywood in pop culture icons, loved Obama. And there were no scandals. That's what they were told. But there's another part of this. And it's just as important by not fighting Obama tooth and nail on every action. He took Republicans created the impression that everybody was good. Now, we know why they didn't they were afraid of being called racists. Critics of Obama really did have their hands tied. They couldn't criticize Obama without being called some form racist jerk. And boy did Obama parlay that and the Democrats parlay that they knew full well, the Republicans were scared to death to be critical of even policy. And so there wasn't any significant criticism of Obama. They follow the lead of John McCain Mitt Romney. The two gracious losers that Republicans pitted against Obama. Both men said that Obama was a swell guy could be trusted was good family. Man was a good president creating this allusion that everybody was United behind Obama win. It wasn't the country. The democrat party lost twelve hundred election starting with two thousand ten because of Obama. There was no way. What was being said was true? But in the process Republicans branded themselves pushovers, they branded the GOP is not having serious ethical and legal disputes with a corrupt ideologue. The Republican party stood aside at stood down. So Bama was allowed to run roughshod with nobody having the guts to push back. No wonder so many people don't believe Obama had nothing to do with corruption that the IRS or the intelligence ages. Republicans didn't go to war over any of this. They were scared to death of being called racists. So now when Republicans finally show up to stand up to corrupt leftists. I e Trump said to.

"It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm David green. And I'm Steve Inskeep. Days before an election. President Trump continues his attacks without evidence on a favorite target. When I say the enemy of the people I'm talking about the fake news. That was the president yesterday on FOX again, the calling the media the enemy of the people. This comes just days after the arrest of a man who was accused of targeting prominent, liberals and CNN with potentially explosive devices and also after Saturday's slaughter of Jews at a Pittsburgh synagogue NPR's. David Folkenflik reports. Many journalists are condemning the president for his lacerating language against Democrats, his political opponents. Depress immigrants you name it, especially after this latest speed of violence, take CNN analyst and former NBC anchor David Gregory on CNN, Gregory pointed to Trump's actions end language against a caravan of Central American migrants suggesting that they're vermin, and they're infesting the country, you cannot ignore how that can be. I heard by people who hate emigrants who are afraid of anyone who they think is going to change their way of life and who hates Jews on Saturday. Trump hitting gauged in this exchange with reporters, and I'd have a much different tone. Frankly, if the press was even-handed, if the press was fair, I'd have a much different tone all the time. But I'm fighting the media, I'm fighting the the media is not being honest. Trump was speaking his subtext out loud. I have to have that. Otherwise, I'll never get my points across. We'll never get what we have to get across news reports had noted that the man charged with sending improvised explosive devices to CNN and many high profile Democrats had lived in a van bathed in pro-trump, an anti CNN decals. Journalists also reported the man arrested for killing worshippers in the Pittsburgh synagogue had embraced anti immigrant rhetoric and posted angrily about a Jewish organization that helped refugees settled here in tweets. Sunday and yesterday Trump claimed the media was unfairly blaming the attacks on Republicans. And instead, he blamed the press for the country's great anger. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders did not yield an inch yesterday. When you say he's trying to unite the country why he out there. The very very first thing that the president. Did was condemned the attacks both in Pittsburgh. And in the pipebombs, the very first thing the media did was blamed the president and make him responsible for these ridiculous. I asked it was Sanders. First press conference in nearly a month the first bomb mailings and the mass shootings reserve the term enemy for people who are actually the enemy of the United States rather than journalists. The president's shot referencing all media. He's talking about. The growing amount of fake news that exists in the country and the president's call it out. It's not that the media's without hyperbole this anecdote from Lesley Stahl suggest why Trump makes the press the issue back in may, the sixty minutes correspondent spoke to the deadline club and New York City journalism organization stall told it of meeting with the future president at Trump Tower in two thousand sixteen he's attacking the president. And there were no cameras. There was nothing going on. And I said, you know, that is getting tired. Why are you doing this? You're doing it over and over and his boring, and it's it's time to end that why do you keep hammering at this stall said Trump had already reply, and he said, you know, I do it. I do it to discredit you all. And meanwhile, so when you write negative stories about me, no one will believe you Trump is not back down from calling the press the enemy despite pleas of news executives who say his rhetoric is dangerous and despite most recently the targeting of CNN by would-be bomber. Instead, the president blames the press. For the nation's anger and for his own tirades..

Synagogue press reports say three to four people dead several wounded. Chabad? The high holy days for those of a Jewish neighbors. I got speak to this. I can't ignore it. What is wrong with human beings? That simply because someone who's ever different religion or thought process, whether or not you're Islam or Muslim or Jewish. That you would want to kill people. What is wrong? What does this say about us society? And yeah, we're going to get to the immigrant says one of the things I had prepared. To talk about. But this morning. There are multiple fatalities at this, Pittsburgh synagogue, and they had the shooter in custody. I think the death penalty in my humble opinion is appropriate. This. We know factually three to four have been killed and several have been wounded all of the cable network show all over this story. And the head the shooter in custody. But give me a call. The president is spoken. The vice president the first lady, and I am a hawk in terms of law enforcement being a place officers. Still a police officer. When there is clear. And comprehensive evidence. Such as this. I think the death penalty is appropriate. Yes. You still have to give this individual a fair trial. Yes. You still have to give him competent counsel. But he went into a synagogue on a high holy day. And allegedly killed three to four and wounded six or seven. All of the appropriate. Authorities are they in Pittsburgh, the J the joint task force the FBI the Pittsburgh police. I'm just looking for reason, I'm looking for understanding of how you could hate a human being because he may be a Catholic. He may be a Protestant away may be of the Jewish faith. How could you hate someone? Because of their belief in God. Oh, the supreme deity, whoever or whatever they may believe. It says something about our society nine zero one factory five nine seven three two. And no, we're not going to bash anybody, but I'd like to hear from you. And yes, we're going to talk about the legal immigrants, ladies and gentlemen. I think it's more than coincidence that thousands of immigrants from Central America. A seeking to enter these United States illegally just two weeks before the midterm elections. A reasonable and prudent question would be who are these people who's paying for their transportation food and expenses. Why don't you hear that on CNN to chicken news network? Oh, MSNBC how Barack all the time. Even though he's out of office. Why doesn't the media? Find out these questions that I just asked is this migrant caravan applauded by Democrats to win sympathy from and for the Hispanic vote. So they oh reverse the growing approval of Trump and his administration his policies and vote against their interest nine zero one five three five nine seven three two. One definition of this invasion seems to fit what is transferring on a southern border the interest or advent of anything troublesome more harmful. Nine zero one five three five nine seven three two. We're going to talk about that. I am a hard core conservative baby. Don't you the top of my head? But. Visited Israel many many times think six or seven times spent time in Haifa spent time in Tel Aviv spent time in Jerusalem. Why would you want to kill those of the Jewish faith? Why would you wanna kill Protestants? Why would you wanna kill those who believe in Catholicism? Simply because they think differently from you. That's what merica is all about what America.

I mean, you're you're supposed to be different. And you know, what I'm saying is his what drives me crazy. Only. So everybody's kind of blind. The President Donald Trump. Look, I didn't necessarily adults fan of washed his shows. But it's funny all these people love Donald Trump before he ran for president. And now they all starting hating him. And why they don't want to take responsibility for any these action that's going on. I had never heard anybody talk about hatred for a president prior to Donald Trump. I mean, I'm not a die hard. I'm more of an independent that I was a Republican or democrat voted for Obama the first time. But I mean, what has gone on since his since he ran since he said he was running it just amazes me. And they get away with this crap. Like, they don't take any responsibility for Dallas. Now CNN yesterday talking about how the president will go back to blame the media again. Listen to the stuff, you have said vitriol yellow spewed for years now two years, and it just amazes me that I've had friends that I was in college with I don't talk to anymore because of what's happened, and because of Trump Donald Trump, they blame they blame it on Trump. Exactly. And I'm like, are you kidding me? Do you not understand what's going on in ours? Let me say this to you. You'll never get CNN to treat this president fairly. I don't agree with everything. He's done. Sometimes he can be a jerk. But it doesn't matter. What Trump does if Trump comes out like right now, the sun is out with a blue sky over Memphis, Tennessee. If Trump said that CNN is going to argue that it's really dark. It's a snowing. It doesn't matter. What he does. They're not gonna treat him fairly that being a given. You have to understand that his election surprised all of us, including myself, yours truly, but he is that president he has done innumerable good things. And they're not going to give him credit for it this congress. The Democrats don't want him to have any wins. It again. He has he has done things instead things that are highly disapprove up, but he's also done innumerable good things. And thank you, your your point is well taken, sir. It doesn't matter. What he does not going to give them credit and hope and pray that in the midterms which are less than two weeks away that Republicans keep the congress in the Senate what I think is going to happen. Is the Republicans are probably keep the Senate, and they may lose the house. And then you're going to see a whole lot of anger and angst taking. Hey, look. I appreciate you.
