The Social Side of Stuttering
"So today's the inauguration which got us thinking about speechmaking and speech itself president elect. Joe biden has spoken publicly about his childhood stutter. An estimated one percent of the world's adults stutter so in the us that translates to three million people speech pathologists. Naomi rogers one of them might name. Is naomi rogers. I am an assistant professor at the department of special education and communication disorders at the university of nebraska. Lincoln stuttering is when a person repeats or prolong sounds syllables and words causing breaks in the flow of speech or disfluencies. Often it begins in childhood. Childhood stutters disappear. Some stay with a person. All their life. Naomi describes stuttering as a social phenomenon. Stuttering tends to only occur in the context of other people people who stutter tend to speak really fluently when they are talking to themselves when they are talking to their pets when they are singing when they're reading in unison with other people. Scientists don't know exactly what causes stuttering the research is increasingly linking it to genetics in one. Study two thirds of people who stuttered had a family member who also stuttered or use to stuttering likely rooted in neurobiology and the actual mechanics of speech. When biden is sworn in as president. Today he'll get a very important speech but it's actually different speech that naomi keeps thinking about from thirteen year. Old braid and harrington who was invited to endorse then candidate biden the democratic national convention in august. Hi my name is bridges harrington nine thirteen years old and without joe biden. I won't be talking to you today about a few months ago. I met him in new hampshire. He told me that we were members of the same club. We we stutter. Was really amazing to hear that someone like maybe became move about advice para para President just listening to it. Just now for the mtv times goosebumps Again just thinking about the pervasive narrative that exists in our society that You know stuttering openly. is not desirable the fact that he was able to just be himself talk in his most. Authentic voice was incredibly huge today on the show the social side of stuttering what it feels like to stutter as a kid and to hide it and how speech pathologists new me.

A heating pad visit bank of america dot com slash more awarding to apply now copyright twenty twenty bank of america corporation. naomi. Rogers grew up in suburban chicago. Her stutter a in childhood and in her words she didn't have effective therapy through elementary school. I would get pulled out of class and go practice reading tongue. Twisters on sounds that. I didn't even have trouble saying and so like a lot of other young people who stutter you. Learn from a very young age had a kind of go underground. Had kind of keep the stuttering to yourself inside Just because you know that nobody else in your life understands what your experiences like and that is the root of wet. Yeah a lot of like early. Shame and fearful nobility comes from. I think for a lot of folks who stutter When i got into high school. I started working with a phenomenal speech. Language pathologists who is also person who starters herself. And so for the first time. I felt like i could actually talk to somebody that understood the experience. Do you remember what this speech therapists said to you. That made an impact or even just how you felt her presence. Yeah a lot of my memories are of just crying. Honestly i remember going to her office weekly. I would drive an hour each way. Spend an hour there. And i would just unload could finally breathe. I felt like. I could finally talk to somebody who understood the experience and that was. That was my outlet. I cried out. She knew very early on that. I had no interest in learning how to speak more fluently. Practice specific strategies are taking me for making my speech. sam hound really fluent. You know i. I i really just wanted somebody to the holiday. My feelings and my thoughts about sorting and overall communication like who. I was personality as a communicator. And she was really successful in doing that. And and i'm actually wondering now if those early experiences in therapy that i had motivated me to suppress a lot of my stuttering and to hide it at all possible costs. Because i didn't want to go to therapy anymore. Is that what you meant a minute ago. About going underground yet you that you basically hit it as a kid before you met this really good speech therapist. Yeah yeah exactly. Just kind of hiding it and so one of you know. I think being a person who stutters pretty mildly as i do. It's it's pretty easy for me to hide my stuttering It's pretty easy to just scan ahead. Anticipated where i'm going to start on swap word. That's easier to say and so there are some sometimes when my language might seem a little convoluted or like i'm talking around something or like that's kind of an odd were choice but it works. I mean those are all done in an attempt to hide stuttering to pass as a fluent speaker. I'm picturing you in this office. You go to see her and you just cry and she knew that you didn't want to improve fluency. That wasn't the goal and it seemed like the biggest shift between that therapy and the therapy received as a kid is a therapy received. A kid is so focused on fixing yet you yet it. It almost seems like the medical model. It gets at the wrong thing. I without even individ- waiting like the treatment for the person and i'm just wondering if you could like describe the difference in those. Two therapy modalities and how it helped you. So those early experiences says Was speech therapy. were hugely rooted in the medical model of disability and so the medical model of disability defines stuttering basically as abnormal interruptions in the ford flow of speech. And so that is purely grounded. In what the listener hears as nothing to do with what the speaker who studies is experiencing so it's like a listener center definition of actually. Yeah with is messed up because stuttering is such a personal experience right and so people who stutter it. There stuttering only that is a true expression of who they are. They're just using their voice however they were born with it and so the barriers to good quality of life to psychological wellbeing are really on the environment and so i love this new definition. That a lot of folks in our field are trying to push forward that Stuttering is a neuro developmental variation. That leads to a unique forward. Execution of speech sounds importantly those are produced in the context of language and social interaction if we think about fluency on a spectrum of people that are highly fluent and we have people that are highly disfluent then stuttering reflects just a natural variation influence e which i think is really really important and and it situates stuttering as a difference and not

The senate finance committee holding a confirmation hearing today for biden's treasury secretary pick janet yellen yellen urging lawmakers to support a biden's one point nine trillion dollar covert relief. Plan saying it is critically important to act now and not only ask now but act big because why not. Interest rates are at historic lows. The seems to make a lot of sense. Dan nathan but how about the debt. That was the big question. That was a big push back. I mean they didn't care about the debt in the last few years. I don't know why they would care now. I think if Mnuchin was still the treasury secretary yellen predecessor. I think he was on board for something that looked like two trillion for a lot of the same reasons. So i think you make the point now with interest rates here with interest rates net. Really going up anytime soon. And largely because of the fact they've tacked on four or five trillion dollars in debt in just the last few years. This is the time to do it. I agree go big

Chicago Residents Could Take Another Year and a Half to Vaccinate at Current Rate, Lightfoot Says
"As the covid nineteen pandemic continues to overwhelm communities across the united states the latest forecast from the cdc predict a dire situation in the weeks ahead the nationwide death toll hovers at about four hundred thousand a grim milestone. That's close to surpassing the number of americans that died during all of world war two. The vaccine roll out that began at the end of last year. Were supposed to offer relief. But so far vaccine distribution has seen major delays in most parts of the country. And that's something. The biden harris administration says they plan to address. Here's president elect joe biden last week. We're gonna make sure state and local officials know how much supply they'll be getting and when they can expect to get it so they can plan right now. We're hearing that. They can't plan because they don't know how much supply vaccines they can expect and what timeframe that stops were office. We've been checking in with local leaders. Nationwide about all this and today we go to chicago. Where vaccine eligibility has been expanded beyond healthcare workers in long term care residents to anyone over sixty five who lives or works in the city but at the moment chicago's roll out has been so slow that the city's mayor lori lightfoot says it will take a year and a half to vaccinate the entire city unless the process is dramatically sped up to get a better sense of what's causing chicago's delays and how the city is planning to improve its vaccination process going forward. I got mayor lightfoot on the line this is just a a a very basic issue of supply. We do not have enough vaccine from the federal government. We are dependent upon them not surprisingly to get the vaccine. In every week that we've been up and had our infrastructure clicking into gear we've got less first doses instead of more fo- sauces. That is fundamentally a problem. I've been very outspoken. About this issue. I will continue to be as the change of administration comes into into play. But we simply don't have enough. I does vaccines and it's holding us back and our ability to get vaccines out to those people who are ready willing Enabling enthusiastic about vaccine. We've been talking to mayors across the country Mayor lightfoot about what they need from a state and or federal officials is there something specific. You said you need more vaccine. Are there any other things that you need For the city of chicago from the state or the federal government to move this process along more smoothly. No we're we're fortunate enough to Get direct supply From the federal government. The one thing i will say about the state is we've identified for them that because healthcare workers in chicago also live elsewhere. We've also been giving vaccine to a fair number of suburban residents which is fine but that means we need to have backstop from the state in the county and i think we will get there but fundamentally in addition to getting more first dose vaccines we also need additional resources of from the federal government to make sure that the infrastructure that we put in place has the resources it needs to be successful. We need more digital resources for staffing. And as we expand into a more fixed sites across the city looking at mobile sites we just need more resources from the federal government they had not allocated enough even with the stimulus. Bill that passed at the end of december more needs to be done and i think the incoming biden administration recognizes that necessity mayor lightfoot. You mentioned vaccine skepticism. As being another hurdle that the city is facing in terms of getting people vaccinated and we know that particularly for black and latino populations that history of racism within the medical community has also spurred concerns. Is there anything. The city is doing or do to combat that skepticism in those communities particularly. Yeah we'll look skepticism. Unfortunately is widespread across the country. But what we started to do before we even got the first dose which a really lean into our trusted community stakeholders up in the black and latinx his community that we formed partnerships with this entire past year a since the pandemic came to chicago. We got a great network of partners at the local level through. F q eight. Abc's but also other stakeholders but primarily what we're looking to is black and let necks healthcare workers. Doctors nurses pharmacists. Those folks are really going to be. I think the critical ambassadors as we continue to go hyper local into these communities if they if people see people who look like them speak their language getting the vaccine and explaining why it's important that's gonna make a substantial difference and so we're leaning into those networks. Those trusted community
Joe Biden To Hold Remembrance Ceremony for 400k COVID Victims
"Day of Donald Trump's presidency. President elect Joe Biden and Vice President elect Kamila Harris will take time to remember those who died during the Corona virus pandemic. The nation's death toll hit 400,000 this morning, and both incoming leaders will speak tonight at the Lincoln Memorial, reflecting pool to honor the victims, and the new administration is slowly taking shape this morning. The Senate Finance Committee has begun its confirmation hearing. For Treasury secretary nominee Janet Yellen. Democrats and Republicans immediately squared off over how much more support the economy needs during this pandemic. Oregon Senator Ron Wyden, a Democrat who's scheduled to take over his chairman of the committee, told yelling that his top priority is to avoid the mistake made a decade ago in Congress withdrew support for the economy too soon after the housing crisis and delayed the recovery from the last recession. But Republican Senator Chuck Grassley pointed out at the hearing this morning, pointed out all the support that's already been approved and says he was concerned that the incoming Biden administration wants to raise taxes and enact what he called massive spending programs.

Senate Begins Biden Cabinet Confirmation Hearings
"Hearings on President elect Joe Biden's Cabinet Cabinet nominees, nominees, and and it it could could be be anything anything but but smooth smooth sailing sailing for for some some of of them. them. Which Which means means most most will will likely likely not not be be confirmed confirmed by by Inauguration Inauguration Day Day tomorrow. tomorrow. Joining Joining us us live live to to talk more about it. Washington Post National security reporter Karen Emergen Karen Great to have you here on w T o P, which nominees are getting hearings today? And why is this process so delayed? Well, you've got spiders, you said. So it's the nominee for director of National intelligence. Averil Han's secretary of state Tony Blinken, Defense secretary nominee Lloyd Austin, Treasury secretary nominee Janet Yellen and Homeland Security secretary nominee of 100 My carcass. Look, this is there's a huge number of reasons for why this is more delayed everything from the Georgia Senate races not making clear who was going to control the Senate to the right of the capital, creating delays to the upcoming the deal to work out the terms of the upcoming impeachment trial to your standard partisan gridlock that his, you know, infected all parts of DC for years now. And so what you've got is a situation where they're trying to cram in all these hearings before Inauguration Day in the hopes that maybe they can do all the procedural stuff that they have to do to actually get some of those confirmations through the floor. It's looking slimmer and slimmer like that. It's possible that any of these will actually happen on day one, even though the Haynes intelligence and yelling at Treasury nominations are really not contentious at all. I think that you may see some of them happening this week, but I think we already know that people like um, Lincoln's nomination I'm gonna pushed up to next week. Austin needs a waiver to actually be able to be defense secretary because he hasn't been out of uniform for the required seven years. So that's probably take a while. And there's um There's potentially going to be some objections from Republicans to the DHS secretary nominee, So it's you know, a gesture of moving forward and trying to hustle, but it's not necessarily gonna get them to the finish line. Um, by day one, which is standard really, for a president to have at least some of his national security team in place at the get Go. Sure, so so what can this mean for the Biden administration having these delays and not having the personnel in place? In the way that other administrations have with when they have started. What could this mean for him? You know, really getting his agenda going as early as he wants. Well, we're not talking about a delay of forever, and we're not talking about killing these nominations, so probably we're talking about adding, you know a delay of about a week ago at tops to some of these may be slightly more with with others. But just generally speaking, it's not the white the foot that they want to start out on its slows things down. There are competent career officials in places the acting secretaries for the duration it takes to actually get the people confirmed. But you know if I didn't want to come in to make a splash and and have this agenda that would say from day one he was going to correct so the ills of the Trump administration and he's slightly him strong and slightly delayed, So it's more of a You know, presuming nothing terrible happens in the next week, In which case it's a different story, right? But presuming that things are fairly common. The world. Um it's just a psychological impediment for getting going and and promising a new era, which is what he tracked do during the campaign, and they're after. But as we've seen the last few months have been hamstrung with all kinds of delays and slow down and and political arguments that have hampered that. So this is kind of just, you know, if you can't just snap your fingers and have everything change on Inauguration day, and this is more evidence of that. Karen, Thanks so much. We appreciate it. Thank you. Karen Emergent of the Washington Post. Let's get a look at Wall Street. Jeff Klee bomb

Bush. The officials said. Austin is well versed on threats abroad as well as those at home, including quote the national security imperative of rooting out white supremacy from the force.

"president elect joe biden" Discussed on NBC Meet the Press
"Take on all of that. Plus the biden administration's foreign policy is likely to look like right after this break wisely too early to to announce to decide where you're gonna have to ask my wife who's here in the audience roll-call capital newspaper. You're thinking about running for president. Now i'm not thinking about running. I am not going to run for president. I made that decision about yes which way you're leaning if we had to make a day since my family had made that decision i'd make no fight can raise the money. If there's someone out there besides me thinks. I should be president. I'm going to run for president. If not i'm not going to run for president. Are you running for president. Running for pres- don't want to become president. You say your goal to be the presumptive front runner. Guess at the end of march yes. Welcome back that. Of course was joe biden running and not running but mostly running over the course of the last thirty years. Let me bring back the panel. And i do want to first start with foreign policy until i do wanna ask everybody's opinion about how he handle the second term question and when does he do it. But claire mccaskill. How do you. How would you describe what kind of foreign policy. you expect. joe biden doing that. How would you describe it. And is there a model president to compare it to well. He's inheriting a crisis. This hack that has occurred from russia that has fueled traded number of federal agencies and even indications into some of our most secure systems as it relates nuclear power He's got a crisis on his hands and it will be an opportunity for him to send a strong signal to russia either on front street or behind the curtain where they can feel the impact of a new sheriff in town when it comes to putin and russia he will no longer kogyo bad guys and he will immediately try to strengthen our alliances around the world Those democracies that believe in the same values we believe in. And because that's really the national security of our country is how strong alliances and it's been prayed over trump's responsibility over the last four years. That's what he'll get to right away and i think that will be the cornerstone of his foreign policy. Johnson i expect that there is a lot of opportunity. Here for bipartisan. Work by joe biden. At least when it comes to china russia alliance-building nato things like that. I separate out. Iran from that is that a is that a fair way to describe it. Yeah i think that's fair. Look what's the model. I think the model is george. H w bush. I think he wants to have a foreign policy. Ideally that's tough but engage tough but consistent and and honestly consistency has been a shortcoming of the trump administration. I do think he. Some really strong frameworks to work work from setting. Aside trump the personality i think the framework he has in china a strong tariff-regime strong enforcement regime a china. That knows we're serious about enforcement of intellectual property and other issues really engage on human rights. That's that's a good starting point for this administration. A free trade agreement with mexico that's been renegotiated includes labor and environmental provisions for the first time has has better enforcement mechanisms than the original laughter. That's really a good framework for this administration to build on you know in russia. You suggest it oh i. It's been too cozy with russia. But the facts are that we have sanctions on the nord stream. Gas project coming out of russia that we push back on russia's alliance with a side in syria constantly we sold armaments ukraine to defend themselves armaments that the obama biden administration wouldn't sell to ukraine. So i think again even with russia. There's a strong push back a strong framework and even sanctions. That are in place that they can build on. So you're right the iran nuclear agreement. I think many people it certainly many republicans but many other people who aren't republicans think it was a failure. Iran continued to develop its program. The only thing that's held back has been some incredible espionage and some some daring effort on the part of israelis and others to hold back that program so i think there's too many other opportunities to get bogged down in taking sanctions offer. Ron suddenly and trying to reestablish a renegotiate that agreement kristen welker how much political capital do you think biden is going to be willing to expend on iran. Oh i think he sees iran as one of the top threats and so he is going to be willing to spend quite a bit. And i do think that it is an area where he can find bipartisan agreement. And he's made it very clear that he wants to reenter the iran. Nuclear deal and the question is going to be. What are the details. How does he do it when you think more broadly about his foreign policy and that relationship building really reversing the america first foreign policy. I think look. That's going to be a challenge. He knows that he's going to have to rebuild some of those bridges that have been broken. And when you think about a russia for example what claire mccaskill was just saying. I think is absolutely right. I think that what will be different from. The start is going to be the tone. Yes there have been tough sanctions against russia. But i am told in speaking to transition officials that the tone is going to be very different from the top the start and they think that's going to make a difference. It's impossible for the different. And that's that's running for reelection. Now i hear on the issue of the reelection. How does joe biden.

"Head space full library of meditations for every situation. This is the best deal offered right now. Head to head space dot com slash. nbc news. Today go back. We can expect president-elect by new reverse many policies president trump put in place which themselves were reversals of obama biden administration policies as clear was just noting on executive power but mr biden is promised to rejoin paris. The paris climate treaty reestablish the iran nuclear deal and put an end to coziness with russia. So let's take a look at some of what the president elect has had to say on foreign policy from all the way back in one thousand nine hundred eighty two this year ted kennedy said yesterday voting against the war in iraq was the best vote he ever cast in his forty years in the. Us senate is voting for the war. The worst vote ever cast in your mind I don't think so. I think misunderstanding. This administration is the worst miscalculation i've ever made in my career. I acknowledged it was a mistake to trust that he wasn't going to go to war. It was on him or was it on you. Well well it's i. I took his word for it. I took his word for it and I acknowledged from for a long time was a mistake to have given him that authority and That he abused he wasn't supposed to do that. So that was my fault for trusting his word one lesson out of my generation. I'm thirty six years now. Thirty seven years old. The so-called vietnam generation is that we cannot conduct foreign policy in a belligerent manner without the full total backing of the domestic population in this country is in kabul. Afghanistan has spent the last four days in the war zone. Someone said to me in another interview. Do you want to own afghanistan. I said no but we got to rent it for a little while here. This government needs at least two years in order to be able to put together an afghan army ten years. Mr vice president. Can't you just say straight whether a winning or losing. The american people deserve to know something about where we are. They i i. The one thing. I've ever accused of is not being straight the art. We are making progress. Are we making sufficient progress fast enough. The answer remains to be seen. The answer is that. I think as it goes on week after week. The prospects increased not diminished that we will successfully gained the release of the hostages. I think the president is acting precisely the way he should think is a logical progression. And i think it will result in The release of the hostages. But i have no crystal ball. Got only known as this president is going to be the one who allows iran to go nuclear or is he the president who stopped. He's going to be the president of stopped at god willing. We are not gonna allow iran to go nuclear anymore than the rest of the world is going to allow it to go nuclear. Well we were able to do is bring together the world to see to it that iran would not be able to get a nuclear weapon period. We had the most intrusive inspection regime that existed ever an arms control agreement international inspectors on the ground in all the places where they could either reprocess or do anything to move toward a nuclear weapon. What i'm worried about is that this totally isolated regime with a guy who doesn't seem to understand anything is going to do something very very stupid that ends up in a shooting in the korean peninsula where they have thirty thousand pieces of artillery or ten thousand piece of artillery. That can take out a significant chunk of south korea. John kennedy quoting muscular democrat. John kennedy said we should never negotiate. Fear we should never fear negotiation. We're so big and so strong the idea that we're not sitting down having a come to the call with the leader of north korea in a private meeting insane jack. Let's tell you what the deal is on one one on one. I call for that three years ago. That's not born. I spent more time with the soon to be president of china. Vice president she. I have never failed including when he was at hosted at the state department to say uman rights. Human rights is critical. I think russian president putin is trustworthy. I think the answer is no. I don't like baseball. You throw high hard one to send a message. We send a message. It put message. We have the capacity to do it and the message. You'll know you'll know it and be a time of our choosing and on the circumstances that have the greatest impact taken on the castros of the world. I've taken on the putin's of the world. I've taken on all these dictators. I haven't cozied up to them. I'm the guy that's been straightforward with them. I'm guy that let them know it stops here. It stops with me. It stops me as president. We're gonna get our panel's take on all of that. Plus the biden administration's foreign policy is likely to look like right after this break wisely too early to.

"One senators flip flops or another senators evolution and that that can be a strength because that provides real opportunity for the negotiation led by mitch mcconnell senate and enables you to get things that you can send to the house that can get to the president's desk. The biggest challenge for him is going to be the heart of his own party because he needs to distance assistance himself from the crazy ideas of defunding. The police and medicare for all in the green new deal and if he's unsuccessful if the left in the house feels empowered. They can prevent anything from happening because they're going to have to accept now a lot of compromise. I was a republican in the house when we had the majority at a time when we had to suck up a lot of compromise that came our way from the senate but it's the only way to get things car. Mccaskill responded johnson into there. He said look if he goes and targets healthcare and climate. It's going to be a fight is going to be hard and i'm sitting there going okay. Let's say joe biden is running for reelection and the convention in atlanta and twenty twenty four. What is the accomplishment. He's got to have both on healthcare and climate to feel good about having a successful domestic agenda. Well i think it's to be determined but let's keep in mind one thing check that is we've just had a president who has used executive powers beyond all realm of one's imagination before the days of donald trump and i don't think that joe biden will ever go as far as donald trump went with executive power but trump has shown that you can do things. Radical is taking money from the pentagon to build a domestic project without congressional approval He tried to wipe out all kinds of immigration law. Just with the stroke of a pin. So that is in joe. Biden's back pocket. And i know the republicans will scream executive power abuse. Just like they're probably going to scream deficit. even though they were quiet as a mouse about deficits in executive power over the last four years. Now i do think that a lot of people are going to have to change their their their their outrage talking points on different on different channels we shall see. Let me pause here. We're gonna do a little foreign policy for the next round here when we come.

"Their comments sprinkled with thinly-veiled recrimination directed at their counterparts. All of them unified only in their common desire to be somewhere else now. He's reading of that of those four people at the time. One can't help but wonder kristen. If the president obama himself didn't enjoy those meanings that is the exact opposite. Tak of joe biden. I think that's a great point. Chuck it is the exact opposite of joe biden who enjoys those meetings and he enjoys reaching across the aisle. He's talked about the good working relationship that he has with. Senate majority leader mitch mcconnell. That of course is going to be critical mitch. Mcconnell joe biden have now acknowledged that they have spoken and that they are going to move forward and try to get things done. That's going to be a real challenge and biden knows at his first and biggest challenge is going to be unity so i think you're going to see him. Try to focus on trying to get. Some legislation passed. That will have bipartisan. Support like a stimulus bill. Chuck claire mccaskill going back through our recent presidents. there's not been one in my lifetime. That actually likes congress. They love every one of them complained about it. You have to go back to lbj. Who seemed to love working with congress right knew how to love. The senate biden is more like an lbj in his love for the senate can he use that to actually get things done. Well he knows how it works And he enjoys the personal relationships and keeping mind chuck. They're going to be three democratic senators from states. That trump won handily. And there's going to be somewhere between three and five republican senators from states. That biden won handily. That group of senators is gonna be where joe biden has opportunity to put together a fifty one margin that could go around mitch mcconnell if he is leader in terms of getting things to the floor and actually getting bipartisan deal done. That's what he'll be focused on johnson new. We've seen it already. Washington's favorite new odd couple is going to be. Joe and mitch. You could see these headlined sear. It is going to be the most important relationship in washington. It was interesting. Here's what mcconnell put in his book about why he preferred working with biden over obama. Any wrote this the reason we could get a deal done. And then i could work with. Joe was that we could talk to each other. I could tell them how far we could go and how he would reciprocate. Unlike obama joe made no effort to convince me that i was wrong or that. I held an incorrect view of the world. He just simply took my politics as a given. And i did this. Say i've heard this critique before from some senators even democratic ones regarding president obama regarding president bush senators want to be taken at at face value. Do they not well. If if they're going to be effective there were does have to mean something. And you've you've seen in your personal experience. Means to joe biden and i love him or hate him he. He's committed to that. It's not enough just to know the senate But he's actually charite important hearings. He's negotiated important. He really has as participated in the process and dunzo effectively. Because the characteristics you've described and you cannot overemphasize the importance of this relationship between mcconnell and the president elect because the only way anything will get done is if the president and then president joe biden negotiates with mitch. Mcconnell comes to an agreement that agreement moves through the senate and then it's accepted by the house. It's fifty one votes. Means nothing in the senate disagree a little bit with clare. It will take an agreement with mitch. Mcconnell majority of republican and majority of democrat votes more than sixty votes to beat any any potential filibuster. That's the agreement that has a chance of getting signed into law. Nothing else kristen. Welker what does the incoming biden administration. How do they view. Obviously the georgia runoffs. You know could change the trajectory. But are they assuming that no matter. What mcconnell is going to be a hurdle so they got to figure out how to work with them. They are chuck. I think that's absolutely right no matter what happens in georgia. Obviously abidance been campaigning in georgia. He'd like to win those two senate seats there but he is begging on the fact that that might not happen and so how is he going to move forward with his agenda. How's he going to get it passed. Look there's going to be pressure on mcconnell to this is obviously a country that needs economic relief and so that could be a pressure point for mcconnell their relationship though chuck does go back as we've been discussing mcconnell talking about the fact that he trusts joe biden but the question is how do you move beyond the areas of bipartisanship. Okay if they can get a stimulus deal done. How did they get infrastructure done. Is that potential other opportunity. I think biden is going to be looking for those openings particularly in the first one hundred days that he is an office chuck to try to set the tone because remember he's got also answer to his progressive base as well and there could be complications with legislation. There i was just gonna say claire. What is what is going. He got criticism for giving mcconnell too much back when you were in the senate during during One of the deals that he cut. How does he strike that balance without getting progressives coming after him well first of all progressives are going to want to get something done. they're going to want to get something done infrastructure they're going to want to get something done on a stimulus a serious economic package moving forward past the pandemic and the reason i talked about fifty one votes..

Todd good sunday morning. And i hope you're all enjoying a safe and happy and healthy holiday break. Joe biden has been preparing to be president for most of his adult life. He was twenty nine years old when he was first elected in one thousand nine hundred eighty two to the us senate in delaware and he has run for president. Nineteen eighty eight in two thousand eight and of course again. This year at the beginning of the campaign was largely dismissed as the past. His prime centrist democrat flailing in an increasingly progressive party. Biden finished fourth in iowa. And an even more embarrassing fifth in new hampshire but roughly three weeks later. He lapped the field in south carolina. Then all but swept the super tuesday contest in route to the nomination. He beat the democrats by running to their right. And then he'd be president trump by running to his left winning more than eighty one million votes by far the most ever by any candidate for president. So what kind of president will this most prepared. President make we brought together. Nbc news white house correspondent kristen. Welker and former republican senator johnson in new hampshire and former democratic senator claire mccaskill of missouri. Both of whom have served with by. We're gonna look back at many of the fifty times. The joe biden has been on meet the press and other nbc news broadcasts over the years including twenty twenty. We'll hear his thoughts on domestic policy foreign policy. And we're going to begin with what he said about governing divided nation including a meet the press appearance not long after george w bush won the controversial two thousand election. The vote was certified. George w bush. We'll be the forty third pressing. Senator biden let me start with you house. Democrats protesting the vote in florida. And if they had gotten a senator to join in their protests they could have had a challenge. If you will to the electoral college vote. Why wouldn't any. Democratic senator joined with democratic congressman people. Tell you the truth. I wouldn't ask number two if they had. I wouldn't have signed that the election's over it's time to move on. But i think it reflects a reality a reality george. Bush has to deal with the president signaled from even before the election began that he thought that he implied that. It wasn't going to be fair as absentee ballots. Things as mail in ballots things with the post office. But i was confident. The american people would speak. I must tell you i. I wasn't confident. The president would accept the voice that they that they sounded your other hat chairman of the judiciary committee. Have you found one of the new women. Senators served on your committee. I have found one for certain. And i intend on having to on the committee Come hell or high water. There will be women on that committee about the idea of appointing the first hispanic in history. I think that's a great idea. But it should not be a limiting idea if he has someone that he likes he. Someone he thinks will foot the bill. I was in all things being equal picnic spanish because we should look like american the court but do not suggest that you should only pick a woman black hispanic or whatever i hear so often people saying you know the president one issue. Get his picks. Well if that were the case there wouldn't be a thing called advice and consent the constitution there are several circumstances in which the president should not get his pick one. Obviously if he's he picked someone to for a job who says they want to do away with the job. I'm not gonna vote for anybody. Who says i want to be head of a department my purpose rid of the department number two. If you have someone for the job who communicates to the public at large that they are not likely to an even handed way. Apply the law. Whatever it happens to be whatever department. That's a reason not to be from thousand speak interest groups you ever since the board hearing which is referenced where i sat down with a civil rights groups told them how i was going to run the hearing they walked out held. A press conference went and said we told. Joe biden how to run the airing which ruined my reputation that point. I don't meet with them anymore..

"Electoral college has formalized. Joe biden's victory. In last month's presidential election meetings in state capitals nationwide affirmed he had secured more than the two hundred seventy votes needed. The next major step comes next month. When the totals from each state are counted in congress and an outcome declared the president elect spoke last night respecting. The will of the people is the heart of our democracy. Even we find those results hard to accept. But that's the obligation of those taken on a sworn duty to uphold the constitution. Some congressional republicans many of whom had resisted recognizing. Mr biden's win acknowledged the democrat would be the next president but president. Trump still hasn't conceded joining me now to talk about how that's playing out in congress is capitol hill reporter schivonne hughes. Good morning john. Good morning so chevron with president trump still refusing to concede where does that leave republican lawmakers politically this is a huge struggle for republicans because president trump has made clear that he expects republicans to show their allegiance to him and any effort to say that joe biden is in fact the president is perceived by donald trump as a personal challenge and this personal challenge has consequences because right now the senate republicans need president trump on their side in order to spur. Voter turnout into georgia senate races. That have not yet occurred. They are run off. Scheduled for january fifth and so republicans need to figure out how to keep donald trump on board while still preserving the legitimacy of the electoral college vote. And this is going to be a very very tricky few weeks for them okay. Next steps the congressional count to certify. The election will be on january. Sixth is this now just a matter of formality or is there something else to keep an eye out for the january. Sixth counting of the electoral college votes is normally a formality. But in this case it could turn into something of a spectacle that's because there is a provision that allows congress to challenge tally by the electoral college provided that house lawmaker and senate lawmaker registered an identical objection in writing right. Now an alabama house member mo brooks has indicated. He plans to challenge the electoral results from several states including georgia. He is still looking for a senate colleague. And so if a senate colleague isn't found this will be noise without much amplification. However if mr brooks succeeds in finding a senate colleague we could have a big spectacle questioning the vote leading to at least a couple of hours of debate in both the senate and the house chambers on whether in fact joe biden did win the presidency would about future lawsuits and challenges to the election through the court system. Does the electoral college vote serve as a last blockade to that the scholars with whom i've spoken said that the electoral college vote is really the end of the line. Once this vote get certified and mind you vice. President mike pence is going to be in the chair and so he'll be in the position of having to declare sign off on the fact that joe biden is the winner but there is no other legal course according to the scholars to whom i've spoken now i do have to tell you that i've spoken to congressman mo brooks and he feels that the vote in the house on certifying. The electoral college results should not be based on a majority. But it should be. Based on a tally of each of the fifty states and the math works out differently. Republicans are far more powerful in terms of dominating state delegations than they are in terms of the house majority republicans do not have a majority of the seats in the house. But there is some thought they might be able to have a majority of state delegations and so it's not inconceivable that you could see republicans in a long shot move trying to pursue some type of supreme court challenge so big picture. Where does all this leave us. At the end of the day this does seem to be the end of the line for president. Trump's challenges to the election results as a practical legal matter as a political matter though questioning whether or not joe biden won the presidency means a cloud could hang over his presidency for the entire four years a segments of the american public do not perceive him to be the legitimate president shimon hughes covers capitol hill for the wall street journal.

I wanna talk about biden. A little bit more i. I know that he's planning a bunch of executive orders as soon as he takes office including to rejoin the paris climate accord and to stop the corona virus virus under control. I promise you we can rebuild our economy back better than it was before we can address race based disparity is the damage our country. It's in our power. And i want to talk about the corona virus for a minute Cases are spiking across the united states. This is the worst that they've seen the epidemic So far and what challenges does biden face in turning around the corona virus response especially given all these obstacles that you just outlined Okay well first of all as we know quite pointedly this week. This is a moving target. Things are changing all the time. The news that there might be a vaccine sooner than expected has certainly changed. The conversation to some degree is a coming out this morning saying that the vaccine that it is developing with bio and take is ninety percent effective the companies also saying no serious safety concerns have been observed pfizer. Ceo these A great day for science is a great. They humanity but biden is hampered in the same way that trump was handed hampered in as far as he does not have complete jurisdiction over the entire country to implement comprehensive plan to deal with corona virus. The governor's may get ahead of him. They may fall behind him. There's this mood in the put some parts of the country that the whole thing is a hoax anyway. The idea that you wear masks as has become rather than a health requirement has become a political issue a political football but nevertheless as you rightly point out biden has been signaling that this is a priority. It doesn't matter whether or not we always agrees one. It doesn't matter who you voted for. We are americans and our country is under threat. His name this thirteen member virus task force to deal with it. They'll come up with proposal. I assume very quickly and that one of the things that biden will want to do is move forward in whatever ways he can before his inauguration in other words to to get the cooperation of whatever whatever agents are necessary in the community to understand that there is going to be a new way of dealing with corona virus and to begin to adopt whatever measures this task force might recommend there's also in the business community recognition that the new president of the united states is going to be much more seriously aggressive in dealing with the virus and a comprehensive solution to managing. This is going to have to involve a business. And i think business business has such an interest in this because the economy and the virus is so closely linked that i think the certainty of the direction will be. I think that will be encouraging to them. Even if some of the measures that they're asked to embrace difficult. I want to talk to you. About how joe biden brings the country together here which has been this remarkably consistent message. Basically his whole campaign was about bringing the country together on saturday. Thank you talked about the need for cooperation. All workers hard for those who didn't vote for me. As those who did let this grimmer demonization in america began to end here and now but trump trump has been this defining force of the republican party for the last four years and and now that he's lost the election. What do you think is going to happen to. Trump's brand of politics it clearly is in going to disappear. One of the messages of the result was that trump may have been defeated but whatever you think trump is is it is alive and well and got more than seventy million votes on november third and so it is a real force to be reckoned with for democrats but it's also be it's also going to be a force to be considered very carefully by the other constituencies that were representatives of trumpism such as it were which includes not just the republican party but media outlets in particular fox news. Are they going to continue with the trump message that signals that the outcome of the election was rigged that trump that trump is correct and biden is illegitimate. If they do those kinds of things. There is such a closed media circuit Echo chamber onto right that might be. It will be difficult. And it might be impossible for joe biden breakthrough that it is a very very strange situation in the united states. Right now that does not really have crease in it. Because you have a whole large constituency in the united states that questions science questions facts questions. The media questions the institutions of democracy and they do so with a lot of reinforcement from their political agents in the republican party and those challenges are the really big challenges that the country faces. It doesn't it doesn't beginning end with the election. then defeat of donald trump. They are much more serious divisions within the community to deal with at. It's going to be a monumental task for the new president. And the fact that you mentioned seventy million people have voted for him. What does that tell you about those people about the country. I think it tells you that they have the world that trump has opened up for them. That trump has allowed them to believe that they don't need to worry about climate change for instance. They don't need to worry about the racial divisions in the country that they don't need to worry about all of the things they've been told. They have to worry about by democrats over the last couple of decades. That can believe in a kind of hazy reality where their view of things is the truth and anyone who questions it is dishonest uninformed just plain wrong basically trump makes people feel. They don't have to worry. That's that's interesting. He gives them hope in places where the where they were told. They shouldn't look for it whether that's fair to them. Because i mean what is the point of telling people that call is coming back when it clearly isn't what is the point of that but one of the strongest human emotions. There is. Jamie is our ability to believe the things that we want to leave. Bat trump knows that better than anyone. And that's that's the.

"High key. Thank you so much for coming. Back into the podcast. I have been looking forward to this conversation. We'll thanks inviting. It's nice to talk to you again. So we don't know yet. If trump will concede but he signaling that he won't he's most recently been re tweeting right wing news media clips essentially talking about fraud and stolen election. We have to be able to deal with the nature of the legitimacy of this. And if it can be legitimate. I do think the president has some legal avenues to pursue what happened in pennsylvania over these recent weeks is a constitutional travesty. And cnn is now reporting that an all campaign needing has been called and that. They're they're they still think that he could win this so we know that there are these lawsuits filed in georgia pennsylvania michigan and nevada. And last we heard from trump. He's wanting to go ahead with these lawsuits. Experts are saying they're a long shot. And why why are they a long shot because the evidence such as we know it doesn't indicate a that. They have a strong case in terms of what they're presenting and be in terms of what they're presenting they don't have a case that would overturn the election results. Those are two separate but important points. What we're seeing now is what donald trump told us to expect. He's not accepting the reality of the result. He's being stubborn and difficult. And actually harmful to the transition process. This is a fraud on the american public. This is an embarrassment to our country. But what we know of donald trump from four or five years watching him in politics and however much longer watching him as an entertainer is that he doesn't take these kinds of things. Well he's not somebody who can who can accept defeat has a capacity to invent a reality all of his own and to not really care what the consequences of that are. So what we're seeing now is the twenty twenty version of birtherism. Birtherism was the hoax that he began his political career. On a defined barack obama's presidency as illegitimate three weeks ago. When i started. I thought he was probably born in this country and now i really have a much bigger doubt. He spent two million dollars in legal fees. Trying to get away from this issue and what trump is doing now is defining. Joe biden's win and his status as president-elect illegitimate as well this idea that the campaign still thinks that they could win this at. They're in this fight. Are there any other options. Besides these lawsuits not really know unless you know unless they that they could create a massive civil uprising that will take the government force. They're going to go. What is happening right now is that people are trying to adjust their own political interests with how they behave with the president they want to be able to get through this with the president leaving office but not have the president aligned against him one of their enemies for the future of their own ambitions so none of the people that you see in charge who should be coming forward for You know mitch. Mcconnell to other leaders of the republican party to senators like ted cruz who might harbor presidential ambitions of his own. Despite the media tried to tell everyone give up go home. We know who we want to win. That's not how it works. We need to follow the law. And that means allowing the legal process to play out lindsey graham if republicans don't challenge and change the us election system. They'll never be another republican president elected again. President trump should not concede. All of these people have an eye to their own political future. And what it would mean to the base of the party if they were to be branded by them as traitors. I think that's the only explanation for what's happening now. And can we talk a little bit more about what it could mean for them. Like what could this mean for mitch. Mcconnell and the courts are here to work through concerns and president trump is one hundred percent within his rights to look into allegations of irregularities and way his legal options well. Mcconnell connell is a shrewd operator. And at this moment i would think that he considers that time is still going to be on his side or on the side of of reality that eventually donald trump is going to have to recognize that. He's not going to be the president anymore he just doesn't want to get too far out in front of that but you know that he already predicted that the election will be decided because all votes will have been counted. Blaming you win. The election is different from finishing the counting at some point. He knows that he has. He is going to have to reject trump's fantasy world of and his hope is that before that time comes. Trump will accept that it is a fantasy and deal with reality itself but the time time is marching each day. This gets progressively more dangerous for a smooth transition. And you can see already that parts of the administration that should be turning over the the information the expertise the files. What the government is up to what the history is. What's been going. All of that is being delayed and it shouldn't be delayed. That showed a begun already. There is a process that was put in place in the united states after nine eleven. That meant that. There was a legal requirement for presidential candidates to have transition teams and that they needed to develop plans for transition. Empower them with that. We're cooperative plants. What should be happening at this moment. Is that there should be meetings being scheduled by the outgoing heads of the administrative services. That is the secretaries of state of commerce and so on the national security advisor. Those meetings should be being scheduled so that they can get together and talk both sides of them about the realities facing the new administration coming but that is not happening. And it's not happening. Donald trump's twos stubborn to admit that he lost the election. And and what's the impact of all of that. This stubbornness to actually transition to power. What impact could that have on. Joe biden's upcoming presidential run. Well i mean considering how big the united states government is arguably the largest organization in the world handing thought the control of that from one person to another particularly when when they are different. Political parties is a monumental task and though it seems like there's a long time to do it seventy some days are left there really is. There's just so much work that needs to be done to make the transition smooth and the requirement for a smooth transition national security issue. So it's very important but it's not happening now because as i said trump is just too stubborn to admit that he's lost and he slowing down process.

"I i'm not taking the the legal challenges seriously at all. It's a lot of them have been laughed out of court Since we last talked about this it seems pretty clear that a lot of them would maybe shave down the vote at the margins. But there's just there is no legal. Pathway that we've seen articulated that would overturn the results of the election. Jared kushner's find a jim baker like figure Former white house chief of staff treasury secretary secretary of state statesman of all statesman's that they worship in washington. Dc ended with david bossy. The citizens united guy who is not a lawyer. So that's the crackle team-leading this why am tommy they. They had jim baker but they accidentally got jim baker todo landscape. We gotta we gotta talk. And then i'll i'll show about illegal thing but we should talk about the transition at some point because that's more concerning love it. What do you think about the boat. The legal challenges look. Here's what we know rudy. Giuliani found out while live on television. That all the networks said called it he then looked up in pray to god and then introduced a registered sex offender ally about what happened in philadelphia. I am not particularly concerned about if i think it is much. It's like you know i mean. Has there ever been all firm grace more profound in full. I mean yes there. Have there have been others. That are worse but my goodness rudy giuliani bikes. But so no i look. I think i think what is sad about all of this is it should be deeply deeply worrying that people like ted cruz. Like lindsey graham are signing onto this and then a bunch of Kind of invisible. Republicans are putting out. Mealy statements that are like we should count all illegal votes no illegal votes. Which of course is what we've already done. It should be alarming to us because it would mean that if this election had been closer if it didn't turn out after the vote counting was done that we had really won. Ultimately the states we plan plus arizona plus georgia that. It was undeniable. We'd be in a much different situation because they might be a better position to actually steal. This election should be terrifying. Also it is dangerous. it is dangerous. Step they're not accepting the result. We can talk about how dangerous it is for the transition but is going to be dangerous when you see a bunch of a right wing leaders telling millions upon millions of people that this is not Legitimate outcome we've talked about tastic terrorism's to cast fascism in the past. If enough people here that a few of them will take this literally and it is fucking dangerous. It is dangerous even if it's stupid doesn't work well. It's not only dangerous. It is the most predictable thing in the world. Everyone predicted this before. It happened months before it happened. No one ever thought trump would concede everyone knew. The trump would pedal conspiracies about the stolen election. And we all know by now after four years that that works with his base. Not just because everyone believes trump said because he has an entire fucking propaganda network. That does that. That is poisoning people's brains in this country so that at least half the country is going to go on believing that this election was stolen It's just it's shocking and horrifying also inevitable and just this is not a contested election. Joe biden's margin over donald trump in the state song. The election michigan pennsylvania. Wisconsin is already two hundred and twenty thousand votes which is far more than the just under eighty thousand votes where donald trump be hillary clinton by you look at every single law suit. He has filed even if he won all these lawsuits. It would not shave nearly enough off. Any of the states. Let alone the multiple states. He needs to win this election. He has gone own ten. In post-election litigation owen ten according to marc elias lawsuits out left. And right he's getting laughed out of court. Even courts with republican judges getting laughed out of so like this is the annoy this is. What's really bucking infuriating. About ted cruz. And lindsey graham and all these republicans were like well and even susan collins in her statement was like the president should be afforded all of his opportunities to challenge this in court. Yeah if it was like. We're not talking about five hundred votes in florida in two thousand here right. We're talking about losing lawsuit after lawsuit after lawsuit and then just keeping them going like went through december. How many times does he get to challenge the results. He's been he's already been losing like he's just going to do this forever for the next fucking month. He's going to do this until the elector sitting electoral college. Like what is this. it's also on you know these republicans that are Humoring trump either because they plan on running themselves and want to claim that they did or because they're just profound cowards. Us they are. They are a living in the largest. Our democracy has afforded them that we can handle this undermining of those institutions. They are relying on the strength of our system itself to be robust enough. That what they're doing doesn't matter because we've been through so many elections where Where the step wasn't the certification of the electoral college wasn't the certification of the results. It was institutions like the press calling it and then individuals accepting calling and conceding not because there aren't inexhaustible legal remedies that you can pretend exist before you but because they understood. It was the right thing to do. We will be fine because we can handle one asshole whose ego in narcissism prevents him from doing this and a bunch of cowards. Who will go along because of the economics of their media environment or so heinous but just because it will come to. Nothing doesn't mean. It shouldn't be incredibly saddened alarming. Like on one hand. I don't really care what donald trump tweets at this point. I don't really care that rudy. Giuliani pam bondi. Corey lewandowski showed up at a place called four seasons total landscaping after the president. Tweeted out that there's going to be important. Press conference at the four seasons and then had to correct himself and say it was four seasons total landscaping. Which is next to an erotic bookshop that hosts dildo madness sales And then giuliani at that. Press conference as you said love. It invited someone who he claimed was a republican poll-watcher in philadelphia who'd been obstructed from the poll. Watching process turns out that person has actually just a registered sex offender by the way. He's just like perfect. It just symbolizes the entire legal to do. And how am i finding about this dildo sale from you. Ll what are we doing here. Tommy how much does it matter whether or not trump concedes this race we were just mentioning the transition much. You talked about look. The transition period between the election and inauguration is quite short there in. So you know you have a lot to do you have to pick heads of agencies. You have to name a million staffers. You have to lay up policy. Proposals the draft executive orders. I it's it's complicated stuff that takes time and takes manpower so the thing that's concerning to me..

And what do you think you could have done better besides predicting. Oh ohio and florida Yeah our prediction department needs of fine tuning. I'm very proud of bill. Kristol sarah longwell. Tim miller and everybody at our vet and the more than nine hundred republicans who made videos about why. They can't support trump that we spread out on digital. I think we were the fourth biggest spender on digital communications facebook excetera in pennsylvania and arizona. We spent a lot wisconsin too. So we're very happy. With our targeted campaigns that kind of gave republicans permission to do the right thing regarding donald trump. where we came up short was florida. We spent about ten million bucks So i'm not bloomberg junior though we work closely with them and they were great. We did well in west florida. We flipped our number. One county divall but down in miami dade man you know the just the numbers but hillary won that county good democratic county by twenty nine points back obama by twenty four joe biden will get to about seven and a half maybe eight percent so that that was a fastball. That got the right over the plate. And i think everybody involved in the florida democratic seinfield's That oh that was tough. No doubt all right gives rich asks when voting next january the senate runoff elections. How which is january fifth. How do you how do you think. Maintaining a divided government will appeal to the typical georgia. Voter is there. A desire to flip control of the senate and open the door to be more to to progressive policies. Well i e. You're you're touching on this idea. Of how much will party try to nationalize these georgia runoff elections You you you start with. The divided government appeal that. I think republicans will will try to make because control the senate will be up And i think absolutely that that will be a divided. Government will be the primary Or one of the primary messages for the republican party to maintain a check and balance on the incoming democratic administration of Joe biden in comal hair so undoubtedly that will be a big Message i think in some ways democrats will nationalize part of it. I'm not sure that will work as well But i i. I do think republicans will absolutely make that one of their top messages. Oh yeah they're going to be doing. Aoc aoc insurance That'll you're going to hear a lot of that in georgia or dr axelrod. Mohammed has been listening to his radio. Los lose yvonne people Mohammed wants to know why has ohio. uh-huh become more reliably republican compared to other similar states like wisconsin michigan and pennsylvania. What say you you know. It's really an interesting question and murphy since you were so hot on ohio i'm gonna wanna ask for by one ask you as well. It used to be a bellwether. Stay it used to be almost impossible to win a national election without winning the state of ohio. I think before this election That john f. kennedy may have been the last person to do that and virtually impossible for a republican I mean i can tell you. Generally that the the nature of these states as as older Whiter states have made them more adrift more in the republican direction I think there are characteristics of eastern. Ohio in terms of the economic Components of that part of the state that have become more difficult for democrats used to be reliably democrat union. No longer That way but murphy. You've done a lot of work in ohio. What's your view of it. Well i think you are right. I think like the feckless young romantic fool i am. I was seduced by some beguiling republican polling data in october that put a panic into the columbus. Gop crowd because it showed biden doing very well of women and cutting into non college educated people in eastern and western ohio. Even some the real stuff than in places like gummy county looking pretty good and it turned out not to be true. It went back to the model. You talk about more white more rural little older in trump sound tickets with the his core voters. You look at stark county. Which you know didn't flip back the great Bellwether county in ohio. So it it stayed. Words started and there really wasn't a lot of difference and so that that polling like so much proved to be a bad indicator. If it makes you feel any better. Mike dewine right before the election was on tv. Predicting even a narrow trump win ended up winning by eight. So you're not. The only young feckless lists person who was fooled by polling the Seventy five or whatever is zero seventy three year. Old governor of ohio was fooled by it as well. I can tell you the ours. Were worried because everybody was looking at the polling. I'm talking about the good news for our listeners. Is we got the hook. Atta murphy's mouth after swallowed it on this prediction so Everything's okay as you can hear this from the king of north carolina. All right guys. I thought we would go out today. With the salute. The president elect joe biden in nineteen seventy six when joe biden was in his second year as a fiery young Reform senator from delaware. This was on the airwaves.

There is the ability to get some things done or frustrations gonna well up and it's going to overwhelm Public confidence and we're going to be buffeted from election to election between enraged people and anyway gibbs wasn't sufficiently legal voters so i i was gonna say you're topping him now. He's infected me. I would add now that you've opened the legal vote now. I shouldn't have done it now. Nine. but this is the Look what we're going to have to figure out we we in two decidedly different countries. There's a group of people today looking at the outcome of this. And and one of saying i can't believe we didn't beat this guy by fifteen points were the other is saying. I can't believe we didn't win this about fifteen and these two islands coexist on inside this country and there's no connection right to the other island and and look i. I think some of those connections are going to be hard but we better figure out as a country how to connect some of it because we gotta understand some of the anxiety of each side. We've got gotta have some of those discussions co k That is true. And the guy can make and i think understands this is the president elect but it means nixon to china because he he owns the blue half the question is how he can find some connection so the shot totally and that's painful politically because the blue half would like yeah. We'd like to get along on our terms. I agree i mean it's gonna that's compromise sides. Everybody wants to get along on their own terms. And of course democracy Requires everybody giving a little and that you know and the you know the reason that people part of the reason people on the blue side say are resistant to to this whole notion of compromises. Because they feel like they've suffered a tyranny of the minority. Yeah and and and the the red side says while the other party is all about avenging the minority. So we're gonna get avenged on as the new minority. That's why i hate this group. Ism in america used to be about an idea not grievance ranking between groups. But we're get onto that and meanwhile you see how you wanted us to get out of that legal stuff back. Yeah i just wanted to cap it quickly. One of my rants against identity.

"Probably have gotten. Oh so cruel. Miami you know The one place. We didn't think we had a lot of grip but we thought the yeah everybody else would fix it said before we get a little florida story that nobody cares about because he lost. Look at the pan handle. We put up a bunch of man on the street military people. He's trump's one seven points behind where he was last time in the military communities and the military vote. Well here's the thing. Trump got a huge turnout in the rural areas But the fact is the biden did as a percentage he did cut. Trump's vote among non college whites From you know trump won by whatever he got thirty five percent by got thirty five percent. I think hillary got twenty eight percent He did cut his margin in In some of these small towns and rural areas i mean. His big makeup was in the suburbs. That shifted seven points in the up in in biden's favor but you know. I think there is an argument. That biden may be the only guy who could have one of all the people who had run who you know given the strength. We saw of trump absolutely biden's ability to reach Into places other people couldn't And the fact that. I couldn't demonize him to the extent they did and and people are looking for restoration. They're not looking for some radical reform. There they want the norms repaired. But the point is right. Biden fit the anti-trump thing better than anybody. Yeah absolutely now one thing before we go all league of women voters and tell everybody what they have to do to know that. You're gonna leave when you start that here. Yeah we did that. Going down to find a few more boxes in south philly just to be sure that in their just you guys made you talk about it and it worked. No we've got to Two days after they swear in the new congress they're going to have to statewide elections in georgia. Two who runs the senate and can we. Tv station pula nickels and dimes. Right now yeah and look. I mean talk about a date that has seen some amazing electoral change in the last ten or fifteen years Georgia is going to be a fascinating place to To watch this experiment And you know they've got a history of these runoffs and quite frankly republicans have an all an undefeated record in these runoffs so But the question you know. Lots of questions You know are the republicans will they be. Depressed Will that turn out be depressed because there isn't a trump on the ballot will trump tried to get involved and make this a little bit more. tatum's bongo home for one pm or see it as a place to make himself more relevant. Can you know. Interestingly enough. One of the statistics that i saw an art was reading In the atlanta journal constitution is in the two thousands when sonny perdue was governor The electorate was seventy percent white. Now it's fifty three percent white it's demographically it's an it's an amazing thing and what's always been hard in these runoffs for democrats is can you get the. Can you get the base. Vote back out and you saw a huge bass vote. I think it's gonna be too fascinating elections with a lot on the line in an interesting and fascinating state. Well here's a question for you guys. Let's pretend you're back in the white house you know. Nobody will work for biden. So he's down to you. Guys and chuck schumer is online one saying we got to run offs to grab everything. We need biden down there. We need him in this campaign pound. We won't get the out without the other argument. Whoa whoa whoa. we don't want a referendum. On our new president we actually had this billion. Are you know at a time when we can't control it because somebody loses because they make a clown move down there now. Biden has no exotic. That's on his academies mr partisan now which is not what we sold the country. But you're going to get pushback by biden's going to own it internally in the party do you try to own it s only or do you play it cool and say here's help you raise some money. Don't lose. I mean that's a really good question. And my guess is that he solves it by a sending sending kamla there right. That's what i do. I will say this because we were in actually this exact same meeting in around a massachusetts senate race. The didn't turn out so well. But i mean interestingly one of the things murphy is They're going to have to play the expectations game. Smart because it doesn't matter if by could move to georgia or joe biden could never go to georgia. And you know what. He's going to get a hefty amount of blame If those races don't come together and he'll get a hefty amount of credit if they do and it won't really matter some of it won't even matter what right so you send kamla you work on cova and you hope for the best and do everything you think. That's the answer. I look the odds against democrats. They're going to be very very high. It's all the reason guy said. And i think they're higher because by biden one and Yeah the that may motivate republicans more than more than democrats but we Seems to see what trump does in this race is also a parade of flawed candidates. 'cause kelly leffler is no No superkid when it senator. Who won her primary right billionaires or finished second and got into. The runner wore nakas pretty impressive. But he can. If you look at the three boats chunk wasn't as big as i would have thought it was. You got perdue. The world were stand up comedian and john also who gave them a good fight probably as the best shot of the two of them. But it's gonna it's gonna be one hell of iran and of course the whole republican vange crazed machine is going to be heading down there to make a stand and there'd be a competition between all the republican presidential wannabes to go get credit well. I'm sitting here watching the As we tape this On the background. The florida football game. Let me just say. And i say this very lightly attention here given that. I'm from auburn. But like. I'm a big georgia fan. These days as opposed to florida andor but the thing is that Just absolutely just backing off a second and looking at this from a larger lands democrat democrat taking georgia democrat. I think taking arizona. Arizona wait for the final numbers. That pretty big you know because one of the things it's gonna i mean first of all it's just to put a pin in that for a second. The loss of the six fights over the legislative chambers means republicans are gonna still have an advantage in redistricting ryan They're going to be because of the census shift of seats to the sun belt The ability of democrats to compete in the sunbelt states. It there be that you know that that the the mid the mid western states had ride in one are going to become more difficult because they are not changing as rapidly. They have an older wider population. But they're shrink of diverse. Try exact larger sunbelt states. You know now. The texas thing didn't come in trump ended up winning by what set seven or something. Yeah thank god. We call that one right. We did fall out that one up. We did one out of twenty two pick. Texas no no. I didn't fall for that crap. No this is always the democrat heartbreaker. But i do think that i mean they got a huge number huge number of votes out I keep an eye on texas but but we know that to came across the line here. And that's that's a that's a historic thing. And if you look at some of those western states democrats hold those senate seats in a in a way. They haven't in in seventy years. Yeah arizona numale. Yeah and that's sort of interesting. Look i think when when we when we take a step back as you asked us to do over the course of the next few years window behind..

"In the middle of a pandemic their deep economic problems a by had a pretty robust economic plan He's gonna have to pass a stimulus. Because i doubt that anything will happen with With trump in the white house now and he's going to be measured he's gonna be measured on some of these. I mean i think he can get along way on sort of tone character and so but eventually he's going to be measured by some of these economic pro health care. childcare could raise the minimum wage. I guess if he could persuade the senate to do it but he's going to be measured on the things that touch people's lives and not having the senate is going to make it a more a more difficult assignment. Oh no. I don't disagree with that. I'm just finding the benefit right now for the country's interest politically yeah i. It's going to be tricky. Because of progressives very starving. And by. I wrote this thing for the bulwark. Tweeted they beckon august and i can argue from biden's point of view having a fifty fifty or even plus one republican senate puts him in the middle of the action in a way if it were schumer impulsive with majorities. You know there was a danger. I thought it'd be a little bypassed. So were see the republics and the good side will be a useful foil to some of the progressives or say absence not reality now we can't spend two trillion dollars on this and that on the other side. Can he find five. Six seven pragmatic republicans. The romney's murkowski's collins the play ball or are the repub go lockstep into complete opposition politics. I think this is going to be. This is going to be a really hard few years to go through exactly this. 'cause i mean let's be clear. We we talked about the stimulus as it related to pre election. I mean the group that was no on any big stimulus. Before the election wasn't the trump administration and it wasn't house or senate dams it was republicans in the senate. The an i look i. I don't think this is any wild prediction. But you're going to start the clock on how many senate dams star all the sudden. They're very concerned about our debts and our deficits there and really. This is the amapa. Roy seasonal seasonal debt deficit hawk. Do you think trump might make a stimulus move on the way out is kind of an f you to the senate ours. I think you will think about it. I think quite frankly. If you're mcconnell you'd love to clear this out with the the probably schumer to clear this out with the old Yeah senate and congress. I think you've got a lot better chance than to walk in there and try to do it The beginning of day one. And they're better deal. Yeah hopefully hopefully. I mean i. I think that will be interesting to see. Look i think we also have to acknowledge to that that the central thing that biden talked a lot about this healing the the country the repairing of the soul. The nation is is a harder task today than it was just even a few weeks ago. This country got more and more and more divided in a pitched way the closer we got to election day and the days between election day and now Haven't done anything to bring it apart in. My guess is that it's going to take quite some time for you. Know more than seventy million americans even to accept the result of this election so this job got along well especially if the president keeps telling him that it isn't reading the results were not what would they were given me. He tweeted out this morning. i won by a lot and then left for the golf course. And everybody's analyzing what he meant by. Betty didn't win by a lot. I mean it's but one of the biggest shocks to trumpy. He gets back and all of a sudden. The new rule newsrooms across america trump is now gone from page a one page as six in terms of his. Now they don't have to cover everything he says because he's not the president now he is he. You know biden's the president-elect right and it'll move away from it all this is going to move away this will be is really jarring him. All this is going to move away from him and with lightening quickness ri- all the sudden you know he's gonna not only lose the ratings war and lose the ratings war to somebody who who he thought was half asleep But to your point murphy. They're just not going to care as much about his banging and clanging and he'll do a lot of that on the way out every utterances no longer news but yeah there's going to be a whole apparatus that has to get set up to run this new government and that's going leave him Would nobody caring about his opinions. You live through transition robert. I lift pm transition. We're lucky because we had an bush someone who is willing to cooperate. They were revenge. They really were great and Now biden can expect that he can you know i don't think trump's going to sort of a corrode his band by You know what. I making making a By by all of a sudden becoming cooperative and think that's going to happen. I here's my question. Did the new incoming biden administration. Do they who. Who do they call to set up. Meetings achieve staff has covert. Yeah i know. I mean i mean it. You know when you know you when we went through our transition. It was hand in glove. Yeah i mean it was. I remember going to the white house that day. And you know you've got five four four four presidents or former presidents and one president-elect You know each of us met with the counterparts that we would be those jobs we would be doing in in this administration. They couldn't have been nicer. They couldn't have meant you remember. Issues like transition funding for the auto industry to give president obama time to figure out what to do about the auto industry the national security stuff that we won't talk about on this podcast that ri- was discussed now. Let's check out the podcast. We'll talk about that. Yes but deep secrets. They're sending of coronavirus task force of their own biden. And they're gonna announce it monday. Who they deal within the government are is going to be frilled free to deal with them. There is gonna be the fall of saigon. Okay they're burning file cabinet. Somebody's trying to rescue a cat. You know it's going to be nothing. Like bush thing. But let's really. There will be a ton of informal. Reach out the professional staff and the agencies. I think some of the cabinet secretaries will there won't be a plan. But i think i'll bet you see a lot of informal back-channeling to try to one reason. One one reason that up people may they may get cooperation because trump may fire a shit ton of people. You know in the aftermath. Talk that he's gonna fire. Dr fauci that he he he certainly apparently is gonna fire. Dr burks who was pretty outspoken. In a p. She wrote right before the election. Chris wray the fbi director Go on a rampage here but That would free those folks to spend more time with biden task force. I guess i mean the good news is for america that you know somebody was telling me like well..
