Biden uses progressive message to roll out his moderate economic plan
"Learned learned that that 1.3 1.3 million million people people newly newly filed filed for for unemployment unemployment in in the the U. U. S. S. Last Last week. It adds to the bleak backdrop for the presidential election as the candidates pitch their plans to revive a pandemic ravaged economy. Today, Joe Biden went to Pennsylvania to announce his economic recovery plan. And here to unpack it is NPR's Daniel Kurtz livin. Hey, Daniel. Ailsa. Hey. So, what is Biden proposing here? So it's a plan, he said, to rebuild after Cove it after this recession we're having. He has said already, for example, that he wants to better aid local governments and extend the crisis. Unemployment payments people have now But his speech today also laid out more. He took an optimistic tone. Amid all this bleakness, saying, yes, their crises happening right now multiple, but that those can also be opportunities. But each of these also presents tremendous opportunity for the nation on opportunity to prepare now for the future threats. Ueno are just around the corner on opportunity. To address fundamental inequities of our nation. Growing gap between the very wealthy and everyone else. So he has four big pillars to this plan he laid out today. One is boosting manufacturing One is spending on infrastructure. One is boosting people's ability to get childcare and provide care to their relatives and fourth racial economic equities, closing some very big gaps between different racial and ethnic groups in our country, so Yes, he's saying, Here's how I want to get out of this crisis. But also he was making the pitch that we can come out of this with better fundamentals Underlying the economy. I mean, wow, when you lay out the four pillars like that, they're pretty ambitious ideas. What struck you in all of this? Yes, it is ambitious. That is definitely a big thing. I mean, largely what he put out there is just an outline with more concrete plans to come. But one is that this is a firmly Democratic capital D plan with a focus on unionization and racial equity and paid leave. Very popular ideas among Democrats. So while some of the ideas are ambitious in size or scope, the what of these plans like buying American goods and boosting unions, those are broadly agreeable among Democrats and maybe some independence, too. One other thing is, we should also say that he did release more detailed plans in particular on one of those pillars manufacturing. He wanted to make sure, for example, that the government buys American goods when it spends taxpayer money and That is one of those big in size and scope, things. He's proposing for $100 billion in procure procurement from US manufacturers. That's a lot. Yeah, it is a lot. I mean, on manufacturing. We do see politicians talk a lot about manufacturing. Like President Obama did it. President Trump definitely does it. Tell me why does manufacturing in particular? Why does it so often gets so much political attention. That's there's so much here. I mean, you can read both economic and political motives into it Economic because yes, automation has eaten away at a lot of manufacturing jobs. But even then, manufacturing still employs a lot of Americans and those can be good paying stable jobs like Joe Biden often says. And by the way we've seen during this pandemic that we've needed a boost in producing things like protective gear and ventilators. But aside from that, think about demographics. There are lots of white men in manufacturing. Trump has done very well with them so Biden could maybe pick up some votes there. And super importantly, manufacturing is big, big and swing states like Pennsylvania, where from where Biden was today.
Fresh update on "president obama" discussed on Financial Issues with Dan Celia
"It never really stopped. We've been going through this now for over three years. It was evil. It was corrupt. It was dirty cups. It was leakers and liars they should never ever happened to another president ever. I don't know that other presidents would have been able to take it. Some people said no, they wouldn't have. But I can tell you at a minimum. We have to focus on this because it can get away very quickly. No matter who you have with. You get away very quickly. It was a disgrace. Had I not fired James Comey, who was a disaster. By the way, it's possible I wouldn't even be standing here right now. We caught him in the act Dirty cups bad people if this happened to President Obama Lot of people would have been in jail for a long time. Already many, many years. I want to start by thanking some of and I call them friends because you know you develop friendships of relationships when you're in battle and war, much more so than G. Let's have a normal situation with all that we've gone through. We've done, I think more than any president and administration. And really, I say, For the most part, Republican.
Washington Redskins considering name change just to be 'politically correct': Trump
"President Trump is criticizing to sports teams who are considering name changes amid a national reckoning over racial injustice and inequality. The Washington Redskins and Cleveland Indians say they'll review their names, which Native Americans have long deemed offensive. The president tweets teams are named out of strength, not weakness and says it looks like the franchises will change to be politically correct, He added. Indians like Elizabeth Warren must be very angry right now, citing the Democratic senator, he's long mocked for claiming Native American heritage. President tweeted in 2013 that then President Obama should not be telling the Redskins to change their name, saying he should focus on bigger problems. Not

"You know and so when when we have When the team is comprised of native native participants needed players. Then it's a very different issue than when a team that's completely disconnected with that tradition with that culture uses that imagery as a mascot i. here's one other last thing for us, we we would love to hear your running for president of the United States. Tell us why. Vote for you. I. Because my? 'cause I want to build a nation. Or for the very first time we, the people truly means all the people. If you read our declaration of independence. It refers to Nita's savages. If you read our Constitution, it starts with the words, the people but Article One section to just a few lines into it. The where defines as a part of the union? It never mentioned women. It's specifically food natives, and it comes to African three fifths of a person. In our nation, and this is probably one of the defining moments for me. This was at the two thousand. Two. Thousand Sixteen President Obama was giving his final state of the Union address. And in his address, he was acknowledging the divisiveness that our government had seen in the eight years. He was in office. And he was calling nascent to politics. And he quoted the Constitution said we the people. Our Constitution begins with these three simple words words. We've come to recognize me all the people. Now that sounds beautiful and got a lot of applause for that line, but I've studied our history I've looked at our past. I've read our founding documents and I asked myself I said. When when did we decide this? When the founding fathers wrote these documents, they did not mean to include everybody. Abraham Lincoln. Blatant white supremacist and literally ethnically cleansing natives from the state of Minnesota, Colorado and the territory of Mexico to make way for the chance. A He did not believe we the people all the people. As good as the civil rights movement was, it did not get us to the point of we the people meaning all the people. Donald. Trump does not believe we. The people means all the people who challenges as a nation. We have never decided. We want to be a country where we the people means all the people, and so I'm running for president to call the question. Hour! Mark Charles. Great stuff mark. We appreciate it. Good luck reminding. Thank you for the knowledge really. Dot Com is where you can find out more about me and it's great to be on your show. Thanks for.
The U.S. economy added 4.8 million jobs in June
"We approach jobs day, I can speak for Caroline myself when we say and think we want to know what Krystle who thinks about all of this, no matter which way it goes. He is a senior fellow at the University of Virginia Millar Centre, Of course, a former deputy deputy secretary of labor, I get that I sort of trip on that almost every time. I'm sorry, Chris formy, former deputy 60 of Labour under President Obama. He's on the phone with us now, Chris, How are you? I'm doing good. Thank you for having me. Alright, Well, it's good to have you back. So your initial reaction like your gut reaction to this and and maybe more important as you saw it all sort of filter through. What do we need to take away from this job's report, both monthly and on and then the weekly jobless claims. So there was a lot of data today. Gut reaction was good with a lot of caveats. You know, we always tell people the monthly jobs data is really kind of looking way back. And in this case, it goes back really, to the PE period that began on June 8th. So in that second week of June 3 economy clearly was recovering. But when you add that with the weekly jobs claimed you sort of get kind of a mixed Picture because we're continuing tohave again, if you add in Not only the people applying under the normal unemployment program, but the new pandemic program for gig workers, it's about two million people applying for unemployment every single week. New people apply. And you know, total right now, but 31 million people on unemployment, which is not really going down. So if you put all of this together, you get a sense of an economy that was reopening. By the beginning of June. Jobs are coming back. And that recovery may have slowed and we don't really know how much of this float and again as we always say, we're still in the middle of a public health crisis and until you resolve that You really can't get a good sense about words that the economy is going right. We're
Milton Glaser | Make Things That Move People
"So over the history of this show spending eight years more than five hundred guests. Two years filming on location and crew, and now more than six years is a podcast. I have been asked one question over and over and over. So who's your favorite guest so when you do what I do, you learn quickly to dodge the answer to that question for one. You can't win for any name. He dare to offer your simultaneously snubbing hundreds, and if I'm blessed to keep doing this long enough thousands of other people, but more importantly. If you're really paying attention, truthfully, there is no such thing as a favorite guest. Guest I don't do this to be entertained or to fall in love or to make new friends or to have favorites I do because I love doing it, and because it's a bit like my living laboratory, it's it's not about who I liked best, but rather who I have learned from WHO has left changed and on that level would have come to believe as you learn something if you allow yourself to remain open from every single person. As it is on screen. Has It is in front of a Mike in Studio on the? So it is in life. But as I sit here today. Having just learned of the passing of a man who has become as our producer, Lindsay often reminds me. The single most referenced guest by me. In the history of the show Milton Glaser. I can admit to one truth over the same span of time much as I have been profoundly inspired and humbled and awakened, and learn more than any book or school or course of study has taught me. There have been very few guests. Who when they walked out. The door left me thinking to myself. I live their life. Milton glaser was at the top of this very short list born and raised in the Bronx. He discovered what would become his life's work, and never in his eighty five or so years of. Building on that veered from it to make things that move people those are the words he shared with me. As soon as These words were offered in that classic Glazer Rasp. I can feel every cell in my body. Come alive with resonance me, too. I felt me to. My whole body just saying with recognition and resonance. Me To Milton me to.

Logo Did that a tribute to the city. He loved so fiercely at a time when it was on the verge of bankruptcy of crumbling underneath him, Glazer wanted to do his part to help people.

Department of Justice VS. Big Tech
"This week, the Department of Justice, unveiled a proposal to Congress with recommended changes to section two thirty. Patients Decency Act of Nineteen ninety-six dry, though that may sound, this legislation is critical to the way Internet. Companies and social media moderate the content on their platforms and avoid legal retribution while doing so it establishes Internet, companies as platforms rather than publishers, while still allowing those actors some say over what posted there recode went so far as to call the legal backbone of the Internet. The DOJ's proposal suggests rolling back part of that backbone, specifically, the immunity shield that protects Internet platforms from liability for the content posted there under section. Section two thirty, as it stands, the facebook's and twitter's of the world reserve the right to moderate anything they find obscene, lewd, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable among other things. The Department of Justice Recommends Removing that phrase otherwise objectionable on account of being too vague. This is all in the wake of president. Trump's spat with twitter last month after the platform started to fact, check for other users, his tweets on voter fraud that culminated in an executive order from the president, seeking scaleback of section, two thirty and the protections vines. Thank you very much. We're here today to defend free speech from one of the greatest dangers. It has faced in American history. Frankly we'll have awful social media. Monopolies controls invest portion of all public and private communications appears Joe Kernan with today's story. Join US as a niche, Chopra, the former White House chief technology officer under President Obama current president of CARE Journey, a healthcare analytics firm a niche. Last time you were on and that that wasn't the only time you've been begging begging for the industry to figure out how to do this with stakeholders in mind, and how to do it themselves to prevent something like this and they just I. Don't know they just have not and now this is this is what you're seeing. It's a baby step which. It's not going to become law. Do you think that, but but it just shows? Something's going on here. That, they should have tackled it themselves already. Well, you know it's a twenty five year old piece of legislation, and it's kept the industry in a reasonably strong wedding. It's an Ottesen success story, but it was designed originally to give safe haven room for the industry to do more to protect consumers. And we see today. The challenges misinformation even amidst the pandemic challenges. Ron Election fearance and even obviously historical challenges run a terrorism and content around that we have to see the industry do more I will say several former colleagues of mine have now launched her professional society, getting the safety professionals in working on the ground in these companies to come together to share best practices, but we have do more to bring responsibility in these environments, and the industry can do this on its own in the debate now is. Does there need to be some baseline? standards requirements in that's going. Going to be a healthy part of the discussion. This piece of activity we're seeing here is more akin to political theater, but forward I. Think there is going to be an opportunity for a thoughtful discussion around how to set the right rules of the road for the next chapter of the Internet politically. It's hard to figure out who's where I mean. It's bizarre. It's like there's there are some strange bedfellows here. The DOJ looks like it's trying to thread the needle between extremes and find some middle ground like leave the section two thirty in there, but but make certain things. For example criminal than that would give you. Carve outs had, but then you've got someone like Vice President Biden wants to just get rid of section. Two thirty right because some people seems like the left is worried about election. finagling and the rights worried about conservative groups being kicked off of twitter or facebook. So you know it's bizarre, can you, can you? Describe the landscape to me just to give you a little perspective if you. If you agree that there's a problem there's information online that's propagated. That perhaps is doing more harm than the question is. Do you want to see more engagement to bring some of that information off or as you want to see less and I think that's the divide that you saw you think of the good, the bad and the ugly coming out of the DOJ report the the bag if you were to think about if you believe that there should be more misinformation, less a moderation of than you might embrace some of the provisions in the DOJ report that say look unless it's absolutely. Criminal or very specifically you know narrowed. You can't really moderate I'm not so sure. That's where the majority of American people are I think the majority American people want to have honesty in our elections other want to have some consistency experience with respect to how a misinformation propagated and to me, that means the industry should do more and I think when you're a politicians on both sides of the aisle. Bring this issue up the premises in part get the industry of move, but it's also to say failure to move is gonNA. Require us to. To set some baseline rules. You've seen this in the privacy debate where there's now almost bipartisan movement around establishing baseline fair information practice standards, so we have privacy protections on the Internet how we get there and finding a piece of legislation is GonNa. Take some time, but at least there's some rough consensus in this area. The political parties seemed to be at odds on whether we need more moderation or less I'm on the more

Absent From Stimulus Packages: Overhauling Energy, Climate Programs
"Some countries are literally printing money to rescue their economies from the ravages of covid nineteen. The UN and some others argue that some of that money should be spent to fight climate change. The European Union has a plan to do that. The US so far does not despite the fact that this country has a tradition of overhauling our energy sector to promote economic recovery. Here's NPR's Jeff Brady. Consider President Franklin. Roosevelt's new deal a century ago, electricity may not come to mind, but a big element was building massive hydroelectric dams on the Columbia River then the government paid woody Guthrie to write songs about. Colonial. Power returning our. Law. The legacy of those dams is mixed. They forever changed the environment, but they also brought electricity to rural America during the Nineteen Twenties and Nineteen Thirties about ninety percent of the US. Farms had no electricity. Ted Case is executive director of the Oregon. Rural Electric Cooperative Association his Co. up. Members exist because the new deal brought utility, Poles and power lines down many miles of dusty Rhodes and connected homes to the grid that day was the most incredible day for a lot of families when they finally got to throw. Throw that kerosene lantern out the window which many people did decades later? President Obama was sworn into office amid an economic downturn. His stimulus plan included ninety billion dollars that helped reshape the US energy landscape. It's an investment that will double the amount of renewable energy produced over the next three years solar and wind grew quickly, and now the cheapest source of electricity in some places, but hundreds of thousands of renewable energy jobs have been lost. Scientists say carbon emissions must be reduced dramatically to avoid the worst effects of. Of Climate Change, that requires significant changes at a time. The country already is spending a lot of money about three trillion dollars on relief packages so far Julian brave noise cat is with the group data for progress. It is irresponsible from like a very basic good government perspective to not have any of that money. Go to Queen Energy and fighting climate change noise cat says money should be spent creating jobs to build retrofit houses install rooftop, solar and deploy electric vehicles. Heather reams also is concerned about climate change, but. But her politics are more conservative and market focused. If we're talking about if you'RE GONNA put taxpayer money someplace, put it where you're going to get a good return, and that is in clean energy. Reams heads citizens for responsible energy solutions. She says there are bills. In Congress. That could become stimulus programs even with an administration that shows little interest in climate change they do recognize the economic value that clean energy brings the jobs that brings particularly to a lot of red states, so I think the business certainty. Trump's if you will any kind of political challenges, another idea has the support of some conservatives and big oil companies taxing carbon dioxide emissions I. Think it's fair to say that carbon taxes are economists favorite way of addressing climate change Yona. Marinescu is an economist at the University of Pennsylvania, but she says this would be a bad time to levy new taxes. She suggest the government invest lots of money in clean energy upfront, and then Levy carbon tax to pay for it when the economy recovers, it's one idea among many the point. Is that climate? Climate Change arguably is the biggest problem humans face now and fixing. It requires sweeping solutions at a time. The US's spending lots of money. It's a sad time, but also an opportunity to do investments that perhaps we didn't have the Mo-jo to get our act together and do before. Sometimes it takes a good crisis to finally move in a whole new direction just like the new deal. Here's what's different. Though after the Great Depression and the two thousand eight recession, the country had presidents who believed in fixing the big energy problems of
Deal of the Century: Jason Greenblatt, the Heart of the Deal
"Was one of the chief architects. I worked very closely with two good friends of mine. Jared Kushner president trump's son-in-law and senior adviser to president trump. As, well as our friend, ambassador David Friedman the US ambassador to Israel. And I would agree with you that it's an opportunity to the next generation, but I would say aides and opportunity for the next generation of everybody in the region, Israelis Palestinians and all of our countries that surround them. I think that people have come to the realization that the past peace efforts have failed. They are unlikely to succeed, and what we have presented is a very detailed very lengthy plan that could show everybody what the compromises are. That are necessary in order to achieve peace and I think that the younger generation in the region is ready for this I think that believe that the Palestinian people deserve something so much better than the half I think that if we succeed, if peace is achieved, everybody in the region can benefit from it tremendously now it's as if in anticipation of the Palestinian. Authority's rejection of the plan. You'd also consulted with Palestinian people on the ground. I guess ground groundswell is also the key to making peace. It's in the hearts of the people as well as the leadership. Absolutely first of all it was no secret test that the Palestinian Authority would likely reject the plan any plan frankly that we put out. When President Trump made his bold and courageous historic decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and several months later move the embassy, both in accordance with US law something that US law required since nineteen, ninety five. The Palestinian Authority cut ties to the administration. But they also began to trash. Talk the plan that they have not yet seen in in the months. Preceding the launch of the plan, they rejected the plan including using statements by their prime minister. Such as the plan should be born dead. It should be a stillborn something to that effect. That's not quite an exact quote, but that was the tone of the conversation about the plan, but what everybody should realizes it isn't just the leadership that is necessary to get on board. It is essential for people to get on board, and if the people are not with this plan whether Israeli or The plan has little chance to succeed. I also want to add. We have to remember that. Really are two leaderships for the Palestinians or at least one leadership in Ramallah and one so-called leadership in Gaza. Hamas, which was a terrorist organization funded by Iran, and that subjugates the nearly two million Palestinians that live in Gaza causes tremendous suffering to those Palestinians. is whether we like it or not. At some form of Palestinian leadership, so even if the leadership in Ramallah even if President Obama's were to engage the plant. One has to wonder and really talk about what happens to the Palestinians, in Gaza, our plan of course provides for that, but we can't get the people in Gaza in their their so called leadership on board than there is no effective way to implement the peace plan. Very few people talk about that. Make It seem as though it's simple. If president us, either condemns the plan or engages on the plan then. Then we know our next steps while that's a bit too simplistic. We must all figure out a way to handle and deal with the two million Palestinians who are suffering in Gaza.

the seventy five year old man knocked to the ground and no police helping him and then when charges were pressed the rest of the force resigned so how do we understand that that's wrong too what happened in buffalo what you're referring to that is wrong too I don't know what those officers were thinking I have no idea what they were thinking this is an older man pushing him it was completely uncalled for completely uncalled for these officers that resigned they should resign from the department that would be a good thing I don't know why they stop resigning from those positions they should just leave policing it they think that incident is worth resigning for they should resign from the department they are idiots you are working on police reform you've seen time and again questions being raised about both race and police brutality do you think this is a turning point I think what this is making everybody to is is take a hard look at what is good policing look like what people are asking why hasn't it happened before president Obama set up a task force on twenty first century policing why was that not implemented in US states has eighteen thousand police departments so policing is very uneven there's no quality control there's no national standards my organization the police executive research forum issued guidelines on use of force we have training on de escalation but how do you reach all of those departments and hard what kind of oversight you have so it's a challenge American policing is very decentralized it's very personal there's been attempts to try to consolidate regional allies doesn't happen so until we have an investment I think in training and holding officers accountable and the big look at our unionization unionization and United States plays a real role in making it hard to discipline problematic officers will be on the union problems you've been citing is it simply that it's simply the model is a very very brutal one well let's be let's be clear what use are in Minneapolis was a failure Erica now we see the pictures from New York we see Chicago we've seen lots of images from across the United States of the right of the police reacting very force we haven't there been challenge obviously but is there something about the the essence of the policing well I can't explain what happened in buffalo or some of these other cities and those offices need to be held accountable there's been some real steps taken to hold those officers accountable I don't think the level of violence we have seen in America as a result of the Minneapolis situation we haven't seen that in probably since the Vietnam era we're gonna have to take a hard look at some of our tactics and how we approach these things this other side of this issue too is that you even in these demonstrations you basically have three groups you help by large you have peaceful demonstrators then you have a smaller group but a very difficult group all they wanna do is cause destruction and are very difficult and sometimes violent you have had police officers who have had Molotov cocktails thrown at it who could stand up to big shot who have had brain damage in the hospital of brick so you have that group that's causing that then you have the third group looks you know in some cases in some cities you have looting so it's it has been a very strong vitriolic outcome and mostly those situations in many cities do not result of what you sorry and buffalo in the both the reminder yes again if one was needed to about how the African American community people of color suffer disproportionately in the criminal justice system is this going to concentrate minds now in a way that there will be this the kind of significant reform people have been calling for for a very long time race race is very important and you are right about the disproportionate number of African Americans in the criminal justice system and I think you know that that's been throughout the system whether it's you know the police or prosecutors or prisons of all of that Sir I I think the whole issue of race in the criminal justice system is huge and some attempts have been made to try to deal with that in policing as many police departments in this country now teach implicit bias many departments have body worn video camera so that when someone makes an allegation against them they can quickly review that and then traffic stops there's been concern the police make a disproportionate number of traffic stops involving African American so attempts have been made by police departments to try to honestly deal with the race issue in terms of recruitment trying to hire a diverse workforce all of those things are hiring recruitment promotion trying to promote African Americans but you know we're not there yet we have a lot more work to be done but I think it's also important to recognize that I don't think American police are in denial at that race is an issue five years ago there was an accusation that the police gauged in racial profiling and the police were into the aisle but I think I think what you've seen is a recognition that you need to recognize that race is an issue and that you know society as a whole has racial issues how can the police operate in a way that respects everybody's rights but that's just not enough you need to put in place accountability he'd need to refute body one camera video you need to have implicit bias training you need to be pushed to diversify your work force you need to reach out to the African American community so I think police rather than being in denial I think at least for the most part more the larger cities recognize the importance of dealing with
Former Amb. Gary Locke discusses China US relations
"U. U. S. S. China China relations relations continue continue to to deteriorate deteriorate with with president president trump trump threatening threatening more more sanctions sanctions and and China China apparently apparently cutting cutting back back further further on on agricultural agricultural imports imports Gary Gary Locke Locke served served as as US US ambassador ambassador to to Beijing Beijing under under president president Obama Obama before before that that he he was was governor governor of of Washington Washington investor investor like like is is now now senior senior adviser adviser to to David David Wright Wright and and Jermaine Jermaine I I asked asked the the pastor pastor if if relations relations between between the the United United States States and and China China are are as as bad bad as as they they looked looked relations relations are are very very very very bad bad right right now now it's it's getting getting worse worse the the latest latest salvo salvo of of walls walls the the only only taking taking away away the the the the special special status status that that Hong Hong Kong Kong has has previously previously that that could could impose impose tariffs tariffs on on all all products products that that are are coming coming out out of of Hong Hong Kong Kong and and they they make make it it harder harder for for residents residents of of Hong Hong Kong Kong you you can can visit visit the the United United States States unfortunately unfortunately trying trying to to get get at at the the the the policies policies of of all all China China in in terms terms of of not not respecting respecting the the one one country country two two systems systems the the autonomy autonomy that that the the Hong Hong Kong Kong has has previously previously enjoyed enjoyed these these types types of of actions actions back back hurt hurt the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong without without really really affecting affecting the the government government of of China China really really punishing punishing the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong who who have have really really been been protesting protesting for for greater greater democracy democracy and and freedom freedom so so this this is is really really going going to to hurt hurt the the people people of of the the very very pro pro democratic democratic people people of of of of Hong Hong Kong Kong and and perhaps perhaps while while sending sending a a message message to to mainland mainland China China may may not not really really hurt hurt China China itself itself well well it it has has to to take take us us back back a a bit bit in in history history back back in in ninety ninety seven seven there there was was an an agreement agreement entered entered into into by by China China as as part part of of Hong Hong Kong Kong coming coming back back to to head head away away from from Great Great Britain Britain is is it it just just clear clear they they violated violated that that agreement agreement and and perhaps perhaps more more important important are are there there any any remedies remedies for for violation violation agreement agreement well well played played ballgame ballgame the the report report you you bite bite out out properly properly to to Hong Hong Kong Kong at at least least to to the the with with twenty twenty more more years years or or so so and and China China of of course course is is upset upset that that Hong Hong Kong Kong has has not not passed passed some some security security laws laws it it is is it's it's supposed supposed to to have have a a baby baby but but years years ago ago and and so so tensions tensions have have been been very very poor poor quality quality and and there's there's a lot a lot of of protesting protesting just just last last year year over over the the coals coals old old toolbox toolbox traditions traditions of of people people charged charged with with crimes crimes one one of of the the that that being being sent sent back back to to other other countries countries including including the the mainland mainland China China courses courses with with the the confidence confidence in in the the rule rule of of law law it it tried tried that that people people could could be be prosecuted prosecuted on on trumped trumped up up charges charges in in the the if if they they are are living living in in Hong Hong Kong Kong maybe maybe because because they're they're all all wasting wasting dissent dissent about about the the policies policies you you disagree disagree openly openly occurred occurred with with the the policies policies of of China China criticizing criticizing the the Chinese Chinese government government that that they they could could then then be be extradited extradited to to the the mainland mainland to to face face prosecution prosecution so so these these are are really really tough tough issues issues and and again again on on China China is is I I think think the the holding holding itself itself in in the the world world if if it it takes takes away away the the autonomy autonomy of of Hong Hong Kong Kong and and certainly certainly will will not not help help in in trying trying to to reunify reunify Taiwan Taiwan because because the the people people of of Taiwan Taiwan will will say say how how can can we we ever ever trust trust the the maple maple at at Thomas Thomas is is that that they they might might have have to to maintain maintain the the democracy democracy that that is is very very very very strong strong on on Taiwan Taiwan we we have have the the largest largest economy economy in in the the world world the the United United States States the the second second largest largest China China we're we're gonna gonna have have to to figure figure out out a a way way to to deal deal with with one one another another one one way way or or the the other other can can you you see see a a path path forward forward to to a a constructive constructive engagement engagement with with China China going going forward forward because because I I have have to to say say China China has has not not had had a great a great track track record record of of complying complying with with its its grievance grievance over over the the years years going going all all the the way way back back to to the the WTO WTO I I think think that that the the world world stage stage and and and and and and all all the the other other countries countries which which share share but but China China does does business business has has operations operations as as investments investments and and and and is is a a trading trading partner partner with with all all of of those those countries countries didn't didn't work work with with the the United United States States in in confronting confronting China China United United States States doing doing it it alone alone actually actually hurts hurts Americans Americans actually actually benefits benefits many many of of our our allies allies well well they they have have the the same same concerns concerns this this terrible terrible trade trade war war between between China China United United States States barely barely makes makes American American products products more more expensive expensive in in China China and and so so the the Chinese Chinese the the buyers buyers will will block block you you know know purchased purchased something something from from Germany Germany Australia Australia or or Canada Canada because because it's it's so so much much cheaper cheaper well well those those countries countries have have some some of of the the circle circle I I have have many many of of the the same same concerns concerns about about the the trading trading policy policy the the economic economic policies policies the the lack lack of of intellectual intellectual protection protection the the lack lack of of rule rule of of law law that that we we have have over over China's China's policies policies but but we we should should be be working working in in concert concert with with all all these these other other countries countries the the day day after after China's China's policies policies to to confront confront China China instead instead of of doing doing it it alone alone because because and and these these other other countries countries just just sit sit back back and and their their their their companies companies will will get get all all the the business business because because they're they're they're they're the the products products of of their their companies companies are are so so much much cheaper cheaper whether whether

U. S. S. ambassador ambassador China China or or more more broadly broadly over over the the years years have have you you seen seen United United States States either either alone alone or or with with others others effectively effectively change change the the Chinese Chinese government's government's behavior behavior I I think think we've we've been been able able to to alter alter the the years years with with different different presidents presidents democratic democratic and and Republican Republican administrations administrations we've we've been been able able to to tone tone down down some some of of their their their their rhetoric rhetoric of of forced forced him him to to be be a a little little bit bit the the slower slower and and more more cautious cautious and and less less confrontational confrontational they they haven't haven't factored factored participated participated at at Parker Parker with with United United States States and and our our allies allies on on a a whole whole host host of of issues issues whether whether it's it's fighting fighting piracy piracy off off the the coast coast of of Africa Africa contributing contributing to to U.

The former COP who was charged with third degree murder in the death of George Floyd. His charges have been upgraded to second degree murder now. Second degree murder does not require premeditation, but does require proof of an intent to kill the other officers. have been charged with aiding and abetting second degree manslaughter they forty years each of the same punishment for second degree murder. Well I'll tell you. Thank you saw the attorney general in Minnesota Kief Alex caution. Now have to pray on the jury. Is that where we got to focus on that? We get my opinion. Heads will roll on this one because it has created such a stir outside of the African American community. When the senator of that state gets involved. With the mayor of that city gets involved When. People around the nation outside of our race. Get involved. Heads will roll because now you have to explain it under peer pressure, because now as you go to your country clubs, and you go to your social gatherings, and you go to your churches, and you go to your houses. See people come to your house in protest. See what happened to this cop. People came to his house to protest. See Never before. Does the protest get to come to their neighborhood? It always stays in our. Hey, it's will roll this time. I really really do. Yep, he is right. He will face trial amongst the jury of his peers. They they will yeah. The first time that they're they're upset. Because now they didn't shut white girls in stomach with rubber bullets. They push in white people to the ground with the hand straight up in the air. Some day what you pushed me. They pushed a protested protesters. Look, did you see it pushed me? And as You know how. Long we've been saying Yeah Yeah Yeah? We don't we don't even get to Rub Publi. Right and. WE'RE PROTESTING Right and I do very much appreciate. The number of nine African Americans who have decided to stay with us. Appreciate it very much as well the part the people that I'm missing. And I'm going to release a letter next week. I'm trying to find the right way to put it. But I WANNA. Write an open letter to the Southern Baptist Convention. The largest white evangelical or In the world. I'm surprised. That when we have these moments like this that I never hear from. This religious organisation. This group of Christians well. Steve the KU. Klux Klan a used to burn crosses, and that's the Christian symbol across you know what I mean. Yeah, so. It doesn't surprise me. It doesn't mean you would think as Christians because that's what we're taught to love. One another and all of that you know to follow. Jesus follow Christ and everything, but it hasn't been the case. You're absolutely right. They've been conspicuously silent. I'm absolutely an I'm not angry. Because I don't really. Expect anybody. But. Since. We have this. Such for the first time an outcry outside of the African. American community is becoming even more alarming. For the ones who don't. And I'm just wondering what that organization says about. This and I've been trying to do some research. They're mostly conservative of values, which I'm okay with conservative values but does. Those conservative values include people of Color. Is what I WANNA know. Churches on. Sunday, yeah, I just want to know is that is a southern baptist, convention is that inclusive of blacks are? They welcomed their I'm not talking about wouldn't be yeah. I WANNA learn more about that. You know what I would love to interview. One of the top representatives from that organization. To, find out more about what they stand for and represent because they gotta be a great Christian. Organization and they have to be open to all people, and they have to be considered of the teachings of Jesus Christ, so I would really like to know. Why is it that we always just see black ministers? Confused, what's your? Is Valid. What you're asking is valid. Valley. And we need everybody. TB An asset. That will be neat. I, mean you ask it? If not now when Steve of not now win, but a lot of those churches are very segregated on Sundays if you just. Pay Attention. They are unfortunately. That's the way it is. I mean you know it's. It's a lot of black churches. Deaths segregated to for the way they worship. I don't have a problem with that. I have a problem with when you see injustice, and you see something morally wrong. That goes against the teachings of. Christ, why there a banding together all just Christie's. You can go to whatever church you because I like drones and stuff so I wanna go to church where the jam. I like that that's how I grew up so i. don't WanNa. Go in saying to him book that Ain't like that that's kind of. US You know, but as cool is not role with. I need a drummer. Group in giving it to me. Does that's how field I like that type of worship? And I'm okay with people who don't I just WanNa know morally wrong things. There's a time for all of the different ways of worship to come together to collectively address the things that are against the teachings of Jesus. And you don't do that. What are you saying that I wanNA talk to somebody to help us understand why they get very quiet, a moment and like this. When I hit the biggest moment, we've had in a long time in the most unity and I don't hit him at all. You can say nights. Steve Valid points all of them coming up next.

Coming up in about four minutes Miss Animal, tell us more about the charges on all four of the former Minneapolis police officers in the murder investigation of George Floyd also in trending news President Obama personally thanked protesters, and urged young African Americans to feel hopeful. Take a listen now I want to speak directly to the young men and women of color in this country. Who as planned to so eloquently described had witnessed too much violence and too much debt, and too often. Some of that violence has come. From folks who were supposed to be serving and protect you. I want you to know that you matter. I, want you to know that your lives matter that your dreams matter, and when I go home and I look at faces of my daughters, Sasha and Malayan I look at my nephews and nieces icy, limitless potential obsersa- flourish and thrive, and you should be able to learn and make mistakes and level. I enjoy without having to worry about what's going to happen when you walk to the store or go for a jogger. Are driving down the street. Or looking at some burks apart and so I hope that you also feel help. Even as you may feel angry, because you have the power to make things better, and you have helped to make the entire country feel as if this is something that's got to change. You've communicated sense of urgency that is as powerful. Born of as anything that I've seen. In recent years. Wow. See Ladies and gentlemen. See. If you're in. A leadership capacity and you don't have that type of sensibility right there. Then you're lacking in a major quality that would make you inadequate or or or meaningful leader, and that's what's missing in this country because I've noticed president, trump. He used to give a news conference every day on when when the it was running Santa Claus. But then what happened was as he saw, he couldn't beat this invisible enemy, and that death toll kept climbing up behind him, and under him, he got off TV. Hey, mentioned Kovic Sis. So what he had to do was he had to find a visible enemy, and again it was uh us just like it was Colin Cabinet and his visible enemy became us, and so now guess what he has not opened his mouth to say anything about social injustice. Equal rights unfair treatment. He made that call to the Floyd family, but that's caused. They told him that was it. He hasn't spoken to the protesters to give them hope clarity. And then he waited on the right time to come up with another enemy and guess what it is. The protest is dead, burning and looting, and now he wants to call himself the law and order president. That's what he attacked US hisself to is the negativity versus what we just heard from a person who understands real leadership, because he undestood real service bright if you never been a great service. You can never be a great leader that's. True. But, what about the people on Social Media? This guy tweeted look at President Obama now you just showing off with all this subject and verb agreement set. A. Precedent or Really Miss You. All right. Let's move on time for today's headlines.

"Absence makes the heart grow fonder in every way and I think that when when you former presidents don't weigh in and when Bush just you know does his paintings and you know watch baseball and does all of those things. That are non-threatening His approval ratings. Go up so they're not. They do not way in ever. I think we see except for Carter and I think we see Obama weighing in because feels really pushed back into a corner. I don't think that we would see this with any other if it was anyone else. But trump is off but a minute here. Tremaine you know. Bush is the only other Republican in the president's Club You know Bush said he did not recognize his own Republican Party. Do you think that Bush is concerned with trump as a republican is reflective of the party? Or is he an anomaly? I think in some ways he may be an anomaly. Because we just haven't heard other folks stepping up But the departure from the past and has been so great whether it's Bush or an Obama who sees the direction we're going in as so dire that something needs to happen. Speaking of w Bush we think about How President Obama ran against the war in Iraq? Right a lot of people see George W Bush as a war criminal. Quite frankly but still after you know. Obama was out of office. They forged his friendship and now he's the cute pictures of w Bush and the Bush family with Michelle Obama and everything is so cozy And so for him to step up now and kind of hint at his disapproval. It you imagine that it may be a spark for others to follow others to step up and say something but now we're three and a half almost four years in and still there's no way no human cry so interesting we're talking with Tremaine Leah correspondent for MSNBC and host of the into America.

"Wherever you listen to podcasts. This is one A. I'M SASHA AN SIMMONS WE'RE discussing president. Trump's relationship with the remaining living presidents with Kate Anderson brower author of team of five the president's Club in the age of trump and tra mainly course correspondent for MSNBC and host of the into America. Podcast Tremaine. What does this all say to you about the state of politics in two thousand twenty? You know we're we're at this place now and I think it's it's unclear whether we'll ever be able to go back. Whatever back means right to the good old days of politics when it was you know adversarial But there was decency and Decorum. I think this administration has intentionally sought to kind of undermine the previous in such a way That I think it says something really bad about where we are as American because again it trickles down to those voters and the people and even though for many. It's a horse race. It's about ego. There are real policy implications when you go down to the ground you know when I talked to voters all across the country. Black voters especially They see clearly how divergent and dangerous They feel this administration has been in trying to undermine every step of the previous administration. The president wrote President Obama's legacy but trump the trump though you funny that you say that because trump thinks that these former presidents are the ones that have been undermining him since they of course because he has to be aggrieved. He has to have an adversary. He has to have an enemy. He has to have someone to lash out against and for many people you know. He does represent something to a lot of people that make America great again and a lot of people have been questioning. Great Win. Give me a year. Give me a decade. Tell me exactly how we'RE GONNA restore America to greatness for those most vulnerable and marginalized communities. Who are now feeling the wrath the brunt of this incendiary language the disrespect but also attacking policies. That helped a lot of people the affordable care. Act You think about what Jeff sessions did on his way. Out of office kind of undermining. The consent decree process which held police departments across the country accountable. After the Trayvon Martin's and Michael Brown's and all the fergusons of the world right and so while he may see that because he is aggrieved and he has this beef he has this few burning coal inside of him Which represents President Obama for many people? This is dangerous and you know the question remains. Will we ever be able to come back out this as political form or actual policy? Now let's talk a little bit about trump's relationship with the other remaining presidents Besides Jimmy Carter Kate. President trump hasn't reached out to any of the other presidents for advice. How unusual is that? Oh it's Unprecedented in modern history. Always you know going back to JFK during the Cuban missile crisis calling every single one of his living predecessors saying we need help. I need advice During this would be a great time and for trump to to to reach out to them but And he's been asked about it and he said he wanted and he you know what will he learn from them? I think he's threatened by them When I left the Oval Office after our interview he said in a voice laden with dark chasm he said they hide President Bush for me. You know he I think he feels like he's been bullied by you. Know and and ostracized by the former presidents. And why would he? Why would he reach out to them? I mean Jimmy Carter. Is Somebody who he had. He's an affinity for he saw harder as an outsider and the way that he was because harder would come out and Criticize like I said Bush in the war in Iraq. I mean he broke some rules. We're not and president. Carter talk about. They talked about China. They talked about North Korea. Carter was still harboring hopes of being sent As an envoy I mean this is a couple of years ago to North Korea But it was typical Jimmy Carter because he was at a friend's house in plains Georgia in this tiny town and he was serving himself dinner at buffet.

We're going to discuss how to break free from the CAn'ts and shouldn'ts holding us back to become the people we were meant to be so Jeremy. Welcome to the program. Thank you thank you for having me appreciate it you know you and I met in a very interesting way and that was very serendipitous in a lot of fun do you. You mind mentioning. How how we met of course yeah. It's a crazy story. I I've been among health journey and I was on my way to La to be on a hallmark channel. Show and somebody told me to read your book and so. I got the book to read on my trip to La on the flight and back to Nashville and so get your bug. I'm planning to lay and get to the show onset I'm I'm backstage kind of waiting for my turn in a here somebody Say Your name and I was like wait a minute. You've gotta be kidding me and I realize that moment that you and I were the only two guest on that show that day and it was just I literally could not believe The House Small. The world was in that moment. And so yeah. That's how we met. It's pretty crazy so Maybe we'll get back to you. Know what how why somebody gave you the book but I wanna I wanNA talk more about you know why you you wrote this book that you know as a kid. Apparently you struggled in every academic in school. You doubted you'd be anything other than meat. Mediocre. What kind of struggles did you have? As as a kid. I was just very quiet. Quiet shy average kid didn't think I would Do much in life did make Greg grades and so I had very low expectations for myself and You know took a long time to overcome all that but yeah growing up. I was a kind of a B. Student. Never a straight a student. You know they come thing and I lived by the two words I can't. I can't play baseball. I can't play piano. I can't do this can do that. So you know. Appearance really helped me overcome this two words over the course my life interesting so this this kind of came from internally that the these words wasn't coming from your parents no it was all internal just my own self doubt fear. You know all the all that stuff. So what did you think you were destined to do? I wasn't sure I figured it would be in the arts. Whether it be music or art itself you know I was definitely Into music growing up But I wasn't really sure I was Kinda game. Whatever so while you're from Nashville. So I hope you were handed music. Yeah actually grew up Singing professionally and a little kids group we saying on a Willie Nelson Record and John Denver. And all these famous artists sell is a professionally. Trained vocalists is a child which which is pretty crazy. Wow so wait. So how the heck go from a vocalist to you. Know a world famous photographer. I don't take taking. What was the turning point? You know you realize hey? I'm not going to be a vocalist. I think I'll take some pictures. Yeah we are we are Jimmy around him. And there's obviously a lot a lot in the between those moments and of course all in the book but I had abandoned college with my brothers and when I could tell that they weren't serious about it as I was I decided to turn my attention towards the arts visual arts In so I studied graphic design in college got monitoring illustration and at that point knew that a visual arts is what I wanted to do. So graphic design is actually what I did the longtime before switching to photography because actually one photography class in college and I got a d. and nearly failed and so it wasn't until many years later that I rediscovered photography and fell in love with it. So yeah to get to help me with that you almost. You almost failed photography and sounds like you're quite a good graphic artist. What what was the turning point that you say you know? I'm so bad photography I think I ought to take it up as a career. Yeah well It was photography is one of those required classes in college. I didn't actually want to take it but I had to and I didn't do very well. And so that was noni eight hundred nine and then it wasn't until two thousand one that the first digital camera came about and at that point I already knew the the All the the world of digital editing and new photoshop because as a graphic designer I knew all the digital tools so once a digital camera came into play. The made a lot of love a lot of sense for me to start playing with and so I would actually use a camera to scan in images and textures to use in my design and then living in Nashville all. My friends were musicians and so once they found at a camera then they would ask me to start shooting them and then I turned out to be good at it and then their labels would start hiring in the rest kind of took off from there. I was discovered by agent Hollywood. And then she put me on a roster and the next thing I knew I was shooting Big Celebrities in Hollywood and around the country. That's fascinating we. That was actually what my question is going to be. Because my guess was that you were going to take pictures to work in graphic arts and one thing led to another so I I should have said that I because then I'd look really smart but oh yeah that's that's fascinating were there. Were there people along the way who when this started happening guided you in this direction? Whether we're there are people who really made a difference in your life Going this direction. Yeah of course I mean obviously my. My parents had a massive impact. I talk a lot about that in the book but the NFL guy who is kind of a man not even mentor. He was the hero somebody idolize and looked up looked up and I get to meet him at one point and we became friends and he's the one that said you should buy this new thing called a digital camera which that changed my life and he was also the one to say you should quit. You're adding see job and start your own company. And he told me that at the age of twenty four. I'm now forty two and I've worked for myself ever since that day. He said You should quit your job tomorrow and I did quit my job tomorrow and again. That was eighteen years ago and I've never never looked back. What what I mean is quitting your job at twenty four and doing something and the you almost flunked out of college. I mean take take. Our listeners viewers what what goes through your mind. Well how do you do that because a lot of folks are in that position? How the heck do you do that? Yeah I think often times you know when where most afraid to do something that might mean. Were most meant to do that thing. You know you hear a lot of actors in Hollywood. Say They choose to do this film because they were terrified of it And I'm often drawn to the things that I'm really scared of drawn to jumping into that dark place a dark place of fear and just kind of not knowing what's going to happen but Being excited and and I I liked the idea of risk like the even as a kid. I loved walking into one hundred house and back in the eighties. They were actually really scary. People could actually grab you and you know These these days there'd be lawsuits involved. I remember in the eighties. I just loved like walk into these hundred houses Gazebo as a businessman. Now that's what it feels like. When you're starting something new in your world people are starting a new way of eating new lifestyle like it. All can be very very daunting and scary to try something new. But I've found over and over again that I'm just really drawn to that moment to that feeling and You know the worst that can happen as you can fail. And I found that even through failure. You're still learning. L. Ton and so it's really not failure. So have you know you you credit? Your parents like you mentioned with a lot of this. Where are they? The sounds like they're the real backbones that are are there to give you the confidence to leap out into the into the void. Yeah Picture and how what did they think when you quit your job at twenty four They were you know worried for the obvious reasons. You know worried about may sure that's get addicts. I had you know health benefits and all the things insurance all they get stuff but I was you know I was pretty pretty hard. Headed in new are needed to do it now. It was kind of drowning in the corporate world. I it didn't inspire me and MOTIVA- man. I knew that I enjoyed working with my friends a lot more so I knew that it was time to jump. You know we. We've We we've had other people on the podcast that tell a similar story that the corporate world they were drowning or strangling and they you know they made similar leaps and it's fascinating know where. Where do you get? Where do you get the courage to do this and you? It sounds like you're kind of born just to take leaps scary things. Maybe it's definitely Stephanie. Still scary like right now. I'm sure we'll get there in a minute. But I'm pursuing a new career new journey that is more terrifying than anything I've ever done and it's not like you overcome fear it's not like I. I finally defeated fear because fear is still there every single day fear and insecurities but I just know that those things are part of the journey. He no they're nine. Am tomorrow going to get back to work. They're all going to be there again But it's as being professional then knowing knowing you're still gonNA be battling those invoices so they're your career as a photographer where there were. They're fearful when you we're going to take a picture of star who was intimidating or President Obama or the Pope How how do you get ready to photograph somebody like that? Yeah it's It's wild for sure. I've had some wild encounters than I do get star struck at do get nervous but also have to remember that they're just another human being like myself and they also have their fears and insecurities and I just have to treat them like your which read anybody you know. I think that's the most important thing is treat the janitor in my building the same Zoa tree now President Obama whoever I was photographing at the time and I'm very laid back Mike countenance renown. This interview is the same as it is on a big photo. Shoot you now so Taking pictures is not Changing lives it's saving lives. It's it should be fun.

"This is one of those nights when someone inevitably looks at the number of guests and the size of the set and says you're gonna need a bigger boat. Joining us tonight is David chalian. Emily henderson. David Axelrod, glory boards are also van Jones. Jennifer Granholm, Rick Santorum in David urban how much impact do you think? President Trump former President Obama can have in these final days at this point. It's about motivation getting out your basement blizzak not persuasion, so they're not exactly traveling to places where they're not popular. And you know, you don't see Donald Trump in New Jersey, for example, suburban New Jersey, even Bedminster, whereas golf courses because there's a possibility that congressman could lose a seat, they're Republican and you're not going to see Barack Obama in Montana. So at this point, I believe that they're not going to persuade anybody. But it does remind people I think about the stakes of the election because you had these two presidents dueling each other tonight. Obama said, you know, no, one was indicted in my administration and reminding people about pre existing conditions and makes the case very well. For democrats. And you, you know, you have Trump out there doing what Donald Trump does which is talk about immigration, caravan, etc. So they're not convincing anybody. But it will motivate people who've did how much for President Obama's this about his legacy your, which is just personal. I mean, well, I don't I don't think that it's personal. I think that you know, this has been a big step for him. Because he he's he's been trying to search for the way to be a former president in the Trump era. And I think he's decided that this particular election is deeply important. I think he, you know, I don't think it's I think it's less about a legacy more about deep concern about the direction of the country. There's no doubt that anybody with any sense would know that the things that the president has done to dismantle some of the things that President Obama worked hard on our sim to him. But I honestly people have been urging him to come out for months and months and months, and I think he finally felt like. He had an obligation to speak out. Then you wanna play the this other glory was just referencing a prisoner. I'm talking about nobody in his administration. Having Davidson Swanson. So now they've had two years of total control and wash whatever they done with that. No, no, no. It's not true. They haven't done nothing. They've done something they promised. They were going to take on corruption awash. Instead they've racked up enough indictments to feel the football team. Nobody in my frustration got indicted..

"Uh so that you know we we write a couple of hundred jokes and whittle it down to about thirty of course the biggest reason it seemed easy is that president obama has a really good timing as a comedian and this was not the hardest thing you know this was not the toughest room he was going to face this was not the hardest part of his job or even usually of like that weekend so he was at a little bit of an unfair advantage and i think the reason it's a tough room for comedians e there's really two reasons one is it's a very strange room i mean it you've got a sort of professional democrats professional republicans a lot of journalists and what journalists find funny can be a little bit of a tough nut to crack and then you have a lot of hollywood celebrities and that's a very strange audience and knowing he wanted to have you want the aegean you want to push it but knowing exactly where to push it is a people don't always get that balance right and the other thing i would say is we were used to writing speeches where you don't get a chance at a dress rehearsal and most performers get to workshop something in a room they get to do it in front of an audience and so we knew sort of okay when we're riding something we're writing it assuming that the first time it's delivered is the only time it's delivered and that's when the stakes are highest so it made it a little bit easier for us to to guess which jokes were worth putting in in which ones were taking out and the other thing i will say is you know president obama's the tupac to follow i think with a different resident stephen colbert for example to quite well and has arman i did an amazing job at this year's correspondent's dinner when oprah's vault.
