"We're going to start in the early nineties back before this shift. When the old rules about government borrowing still applied. Bill clinton had just been elected president. He appointed an economist named laura tyson to be one of his top advisors and she looked at the economy and she saw this glaring problem year after year. Both government deficits and interest rates. Were going up and then he said omega if we don't get a hold of this federal deficit than that trend will continue. Those rates will continue upward. That was a very significant concern. Higher interest rates were concerned for a couple of reasons for one thing. Obviously they meant that the government had to pay more to borrow money but also when interest rates for the government went up. Interest rates also went up for everybody else. And that's it up this whole cascade of problems so we're people won't buy as many houses. There won't be as many houses constructed in their wealth as much capital equipment invested in and investments in important part of the Economic growth in your all sorts of every interest sensitive part of the economy the way the government runs a deficit. The way it borrows money is by selling bonds treasury bonds. The government says to really anybody. Okay lend us whatever one hundred dollars and in say ten years we will pay you back with interest will pay you back one hundred twenty dollars. The bond is basically the government's i. Iou you that it will pay back that loan with interest and during the clinton administration because of that link between deficits and interest rates. Everybody in the white house talked about treasury bonds about the bond market time. James carville was a political advisor to president. Clinton was just an obsession. In the early days of clinton's everybody say what's the bond market could house bot mocking react to hell multiple. i don't know it just became this omnipresent. The heart of every conversation. James carville was not an economics guy but as he spent time at the white house he realized that sort of bizarrely all these people who worked there making policy the people who had what seemed like the most powerful jobs in the world. We're in fact terrified of the bond market so when a reporter from the wall street journal called up carville to talk about the bond market. He came up with this line that became sort of famous or at least bond market famous kid. I wanted to grow up with four hundred hitter. The pope and the president. But i just want to be the bond. Market's gonna scare the hell out of everybody pleat. What did he say. A what a hundred hitter like in baseball pope the president baseball. I cannot tell you how many times he said that's me. Every meeting every meeting a lot of my memories are about carville sort of making jokes about you. Know you issues as a bond trader bond traders. These are the people who work in finance all around the world who manage a bunch of money. Generally other people's money pension funds or college endowments that kind of thing and every day they decide what bonds to buy and what bonds to sell what companies and countries to lend to and what companies and countries to not lend to to stop lending to and like with any lender bond traders worry about lending more money to a borrower who is already borrowing a lot because all that borrowing makes it more risky and so to compensate for that risk bond traders demand a higher interest rate. They stop lending until rates. Go up and this bond traders demanding higher interest rates when the government is borrowing more money. This is the scenario that everyone was so worried about people. Were so afraid of this that there was even a special term for the bond traders. Who do this bond vigilantes. Bill clinton has convinced. The bond vigilantes are scary and in fact he decides the us needs to bring the deficit down. He decides to build a whole economic plan around getting rid of the deficit. One of the economists he brought in to make that happen was jason and a central argument. That we made was if you do this. It will lower interest rates and interest rates are lower will have more investment and more economic growth and sort of amazingly. All of this happened. They did raise taxes and cut spending and get the deficit down. In fact by the end of the clinton administration the deficit felt all the way to zero. And what came next was sort of a golden moment for the economy in silicon valley. There was the dot com boom but really the whole economy was doing great businesses of all kinds. Were doing well. Ordinary workers were getting breezes lower deficits lead to lower interest rates which led to more investment. And that was good for basically everybody. The system was working. The next big moment in the story comes right after the financial crisis of two thousand eight and this is the moment when everything is about to change when this big shift in the way the world works is about to happen but nobody quite nosy yet. Brock obama has just been elected. President obama brings in clinton's guy. Jason furman as one of his economic advisors and ferment. Goes into this meeting to discuss. How big of a stimulus. Bill obama should push for as he takes office. We met with the president-elect december sixteenth two thousand eight and we're all crowded together in a conference room. I think it was in a law firm in chicago and he wanted it to be big. He wanted to be bold but there was this worry. The stimulus was going to be funded with deficit. Spending government was going to borrow the money. And some of obama's own economic advisers worried that borrowing and spending too much money might actually harm the economy for that classic reason
Democrats Wrap Up Impeachment Case
"House. Impeachment managers have wrapped up their final day of presentations in the senate trial of former president. Donald trump congresswoman diana get focused on statements from rioters during and after the incident. The insurrectionist argued with law enforcement that they shouldn't even be fighting them because they believed that the commander in chief was ordering this. This was the person's understanding when president elect biden went on television that day to demand end to the siege. One woman asked this to see not realize president trump called us to see the congressional reporter. Lindsey wise has more on their presentations today. Another major theme. Is this idea that. Donald trump's behavior makes it necessary to bar him from office in the future because the way they're putting it. The democratic managers is that they're not trying to punish trump for what happened but that they feel it's important to convict him so that he can never hold office again. I think that that is something that they're trying to appeal to the senators that it would be frankly dangerous to have him. You know running for office again in this country. Trump's defense team will begin their presentations tomorrow. They of sixteen hours total but his lawyers plan to only use a day. One of trump's lawyers david shown criticized democrats for showing videos of rioters saying it was not helpful to the healing process and that trump had condemned the

Double the one my sees a rune vinegar Paul reports on the evolving relationship between the two nations and how it's playing out in the Biden administration in 2008. Days after the election of Barack Obama, an article appeared in Counterpunch, a leftist publication about a member of the president elect's transition team. So anal Shaw The article titled Obama's Indian sided Shaw's involvement in the 19 nineties with Hindu nationalist groups in the Indian diaspora. That and the fact that our parents remained highly active in those groups. As a controversy grew shot, says she turned to powerful people on the Obama team like John Podesta. When I first raised the issue because I had seen what was happening, they sort of laughed because I thought it was dumb. And literally, like, laugh me out of the room and said, Don't waste your time on that stuff we've got other work to do now. Shaw is once again in the news, an Indian publication, said President Biden was blocking any appointees with links to Hindu nationalist groups. Aggressive groups claim this as a victory. But Shaz says she's not interested in a White House job, and an official in the Biden White House told me there is no such policy. The rumor, however, continues to circulate throughout the Indian news media were now taking every single person in South Asian origin that either may want to work in government or want to run for office. And we're holding a test to them. That has nothing to do with what they actually do. In addition to being wealthy Indian Americans now have political clout and representation visibly in the form of the new vice president. There are over four million people of Indian descent in the country and the largest population is right here in the New York City region. 60% of the community views India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi favorably, according to a recent survey, But a rising left leaning movement within the community is challenging the majority last year that translated into protests in New York and 30 other cities against a controversial law in India that critics say could disenfranchise millions of Indian Muslims. Yes, it is a preemptive Effort. On our part, he said. India's Muslims face an existential crisis and that President Biden and newly confirmed Secretary of State Anthony Blinken cannot afford to be soft on the Mod administration. When 200 million lives are at stake. We don't want to wait until it's too late and somebody Very senior in the Tony Blinken administration happens to be, you know, good friend of muddy we had to take preventive action in putting it on the table. So Chitra Vision is a human rights lawyer based in New York and runs the Polish project. An organization that documents state violence in India. Everybody has been silenced. Opposition is completely wiped out, and this includes him off India's most well known thinkers, writers, lawyers, scholars. So now we are in an actual authoritarian regime, where everybody has been silent. That includes much of the Indian media, which is why a single tweet by the American singer Rihanna had such an impact. Now. The External Affairs Ministry has reacted through the foreign celebrities remarks on the farmers protesting the vested interest groups. Trying to enforce their agenda and unprecedented statement by the External Affairs Ministry and tweet. Every had Adriana had shared a link to an article about the Indian government shutting down Internet access in response to massive protests by farmers against the motive, government. She asked.

"president elect" Discussed on WSJ What's News
"Today a week after the election the affordable care act will be tested when the us supreme court hears arguments to eliminate the healthcare law. Eliminating the aca was one of president. Trump's main goals when he campaigned in two thousand sixteen. The wsj's jesper raven explains why some states field. The aca is unconstitutional. This is a case that actually seeks to strike down the entire affordable care act based on a change that congress made in two thousand seventeen That's when the congress reduced to zero the penalty for failing to carry health insurance. Something often called the individual mandate because the supreme court in twenty twelve upheld the affordable care act as an exercise of congress's taxing power the challengers a group of republican led states organized by texas and backed by the trump administration. They say the mandate is no longer attacks because it doesn't produce any revenue for the government. If it's not a tax the constitutional basis for the mandate disappears and the mandate is essential to the entire affordable care act and therefore the entire affordable care act should go into the garbage heap if a majority of justices agree. At least twenty million americans could lose coverage if democrats end up controlling the senate they could support a bid to expand the aca. The number of corona virus cases in the us surpassed. Ten million drugmaker eli lilly has received emergency use authorization from the fda for its antibody drug to help treat early stage covid nineteen. It's for patients who aren't hospitalized. The news comes after pfizer announced encouraging results in its vaccine. Trials and as president-elect biden unveiled plans to fight the pandemic as vote counting continues in some states attorney. General william bar has given federal prosecutors permission to pursue what he calls substantial allegations of voting irregularities in a memo that was made public on monday bar allows prosecutors to bypass rules which require investigations to wait until election. Results are certified if they have reason to believe that. Voting irregularities in any state may have impacted elections. This comes top. Republicans have given support to president. Trump's legal efforts to contest the result of the election which was won by joe biden. Senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell spoke on monday as the president continued to make unsubstantiated allegations of widespread voter fraud. We have the system in place to consider concerns and president trump is one hundred percent within his rights to look into allegations of irregularities and way his legal options separately. President elect joe. Biden's transition team is also wayne legal challenges. Which could force the trump administration to recognize biden's victory looking.

"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 kind of person says that. And then he tweets that he got exact words. He got the most votes of any sitting president. Ever me is that qassam aid went to the chairman up and he said by the way no no incumbent has ever gotten seventy plus million votes and then he tweets it out was that he knows he lost the election or miss that part at the other guy got seventy five million well again. I is part of the strategy. He's going to continue to say things that aren't true and his the most votes that are losing that an incumbent ever god just happened to have fewer votes than the guy the guy the guy who won but it is interesting our crack staff is keeping up with right wing media what they're saying and while the evening hosted at fox tucker carlson sean hannity laura ingraham was still very much on the trump bandwagon. The wall street journal editorial board which is also owned by rupert murdoch on fox and the new york post says You know whoever wins needs. The other concede to be able to govern now. They didn't go so far as to say that brian. the president-elect and trump's got to go but essentially there there seems to be a crack a little bit in the murdoch empire at least as far as wall street journal is concerned the wall street journal despite it sometimes wacky abed page is a great newspaper. We took a break. But before we do ask you. Is someone who. I know for all the time.

"So you have an insight. Obviously into joe biden that none of us who have an arm's length and beyond relationship. I assume unlike another unnamed presidential candidate. He doesn't eat salad with a comb. And then throw at you and ask you to wash it. So what what have you learned in your. Obviously you know him from obama days. What have you learned about. Joe biden the person that we don't know that it would be important as citizens of this country to know jim. I have to say that. I think with with president-elect biden what you get what you see what you'd get that compassion that decency that true desire to make the world a better place that you look you see snippets of. We've all seen ad say the videos. That two of the the boy with a stutter new hampshire the more recent or the one where he's hugging. I think it was the son of somebody who was killed in the park. Land shooting. it's this is this is real. This is not staged. That is joe biden. Joe biden is compassion and is is compaction personified and at and he is an ego. He's not a perfect man. No none of us are perfect. But he has a true desire To serve every american and and his His his experience. I think his personal experience. Of course there's been so much made that his personal tragedy of the various tragedies. He's been faced with personally of courses shaped his life in grounded him in a way That is so meaningful. And i think we'll really be reflected in the way he governs. I so it's really. I don't know that there's there's not. There's not a joe biden behind the scenes and joe biden that you publicly because i think we get real glimpses of who joe biden is in those kind of unscripted moments that i think all of us have had really the privilege of being able to see over this over the course of this campaign and of course all all the moments that predated as well just one thing that. I'm hoping you know something about 'cause. I've been surprised by this. The money factor toward the end of the campaign that the gop for trump's reelection was was running short and and biden. say flush. he's certainly had a lot more. Pardon me i'd say okay. I'll say flush then to so to this column by the words..

"I think it's a common reaction when people who are not fans of the president just hear on the news that a tool gwanda was picked to be by member. You and i went to this event. And i'm talking to this guy in about ten minutes in i said and your name is what. And he says the tool go on only one of the most famous doctors in the world and he pauses for a second and then says and by the way i was on your show two days ago so Choice that so many famous people jamming south. of course. i'd course so as election day ground into election week. Joe biden's win appeared inevitable but it also is going to be a slog to get there and with an endless wait. There's also a sense that this presidential race would be an anti climatic one but on saturday at eleven twenty five when the race was declared for biden and harris and biden was the president-elect she the vice president elect. It was impossible to not be stunned by this major moment. In history trump is only the third elected president since world war. Two to be turned out of office by the voters in kamla harrisville. The first woman and person of color to become vice president and joe biden won this election by receiving more total votes in any u s presidential candidate ever journalists the line. Someone was a critical part of this historic campaign serving as its deputy campaign manager rufus gifford was also the osa mbassador denmark during obama's second term by the way it was a reality tv star in that capacity in denmark as well. He was the national finance director. For barack obama's reelection campaign rufus gifford congratulations. Jim i love. You always look into reality tv. Well why would i ensure international sensation. I understand that's how i've heard it described the gifford. So congratulations Tell us how deep pull this off. Oh boy you know guys. Look i think this is about running campaign a sticking with our message sticking with our plan making sure that we raised the money have the resources stop to our guns. Make sure that we were consistent with our message. and Stuck to the votes at the states that we needed to stick to in order to hit our two hundred seventy And just that doubling down under strategy. I mean this is an unprecedented campaign. In every single way largely virtual throughout the spring and summer. And then of course we did some some events inversion events as as as the campaign wound down. But i really do think. It was taking the vice. President's message of unity of bringing the country together of compassion empathy of leadership and really believing. The american people would respond to that message. I think emphatically they did your rufus. Julie move by one tweets over the weekend. You said. i've done four presidential campaigns. The brock obama campaigns changed my life but with the stakes. As high as they are. I have never been as emotionalism tonight as we celebrate electing biden and harris elaborate. A little if you would jim goosebumps. Even when you say that. It's i i would. Trump was elected. And i think none of us expected for him to win the two thousand sixteen election and when he did. I really knew that i needed to come home. I was serving ambassador Timing it needed to.

"Know may have his program stymied by the senate And you know we have to figure out if one hopes that we can figure out how to kind of return to a situation where there are. 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. He felt himself getting sucked into sort clear. My mother was the president of the local rumors to that. Explains this i'm shocked. You'd be okay.

"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..

"You know if he doesn't if trump doesn't come to the inauguration. I mean they don't have the the t. Before inauguration i said do you think joe biden needs a tour of the white house. Like he's been there. I know he knows you know that old adage of like well. I'm still trying to find the bathroom. They know where that is. They've yeah those eight years there so that's a good thing. I agree with you though. There is that concern of those. You know those cabinet people meeting together those task forces. I mean this. Was you know this was in the in the obama transition to trump. This was where the hand off of the pandemic playbook happened. And then the trump people i guess used it for like you know a doorstop or something But the the the the mechanism of trans The the mechanism of this is just is really important because as we all know somebody gets sworn in at noon on january twentieth they become in a matter of moments. The person that makes all those decisions there isn't like a period of ramp up and they're going to inherit as i said problems. No president-elect is inherited for almost a century and as you say i agree. It's going to be crazy. And clunky hoc jack channel but the guys were coming in have played that piano before they know where the keys are and i will bet dollars to donuts. We will never know until the the memoir. I did it. My way from the university of kentucky press. But i'll bet mcconnell and biden have been back channeling a lot in the last forty eight hours. We'll agree to suit that produces because that's the grab a mcconnell's mcconnell's cook conclusion when he got elected was that We can keep him from accomplishing a lot. at improves our chances of getting the senate back and if we make him solve these problems by himself it's true he read to the daschle. Blueprint i mean. That's the problem. The senate only become a campaign device. But we're see you know. Mitch is smart. He's gonna look at fifty fifty or fifty one. We're see His problem is going to be all his young bucks. Run for president against kamla harrison for years. And they're going to be hard to control and they're going to try to inch out the trump comeback by doing trump impersonate. She's got a tough Situation because already you. You know people on the left or saying she's our go-to person she's right and you know. First of all biden is is. You know we know this. He's he's not. He's not medicare for all persons who wants to expand the a. c. as nada. No he's not where they would like him to be on some issues with a republican senate. There are limits to what he's going to be able to do but In some ways that's the answer you're gives them an excuse to say no. That was my point earlier totally. But she's the one who's going to be held accountable. Yes you know they. The expectations have been set that she will influence policy. And she's the one who's she's the only one of them between the two of them is likely to be on a ballot and twenty twenty four. So how she navigates that going to be really really interesting and like any election of president. I've been watching with some amusement that any group that can claim they put fifty thousand votes together is now on in the news media saying well. We delivered the white house so we brought our list. You know at our vet. We have a very long list. Starts with the secretary of the navy you know. And because we clearly but every every group is is pawn navy blazer than her. I i have my uniform award from scientology but close. I'm gonna try to make a ladder. Amtrak to i know gibbs i know you're after it but i think if you'd want florida you.

"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..

"So the whole idea of council the legal votes not the legal ones. That's adopting this bullshit voter fraud narrative and speaking of which to that end There was a flurry of lawsuits filed on wednesday In a couple of states. let's see there was one in georgia. It was dismissed. State republicans had filed to prevent the unlawful counting of ballots received after the election That was dismissed there. One in michigan the state court judge dismissed a lawsuit brought by the campaign that asked an immediate halt to the vote counting until representatives have meaningful access to about counting. Except that they already did. They were there the whole time Then they filed in pennsylvania in federal court and the judge there was like they had a tiny little bit of a win but it makes no meaningful difference to the outcome. It was just that trump observers could stand closer to the counting. I guess That was it And then there was Yesterday the campaign announced a suit in nevada over irregular votes. But it seems like an everyone of these lawsuits. There's just no. They don't provide any evidence at all for any of their claims. They just it's like somebody said something here. Say or just. Did you see that woman. They brought on a grenell and some some nameless trump campaign or ministration gremlin got up there and they said all. There's been all this voter fraud here. And they had this woman. Get up to say like oh. I went in to vote. And they told me i had already been cast and it turns out like they talked to the clerk. Report clark and her signature was on both the vote cast in person and then once you cast by mail like she voted twice any she forgot. You voted by mail. I don't know but either way she still try to commit voter fraud earlier. Otherwise that she by mail still awkward. There is no voter fraud. But that's not the problem. The problem america is not voter fraud. It is suppression. It is getting people not in the first place once they voted. It's pretty care. yeah Yesterday they also there's another lawsuit by the republicans but they withdrew the case in a that was centered on filled a county. So yeah. they're not doing too well in court. And the tiny little wins have had i been procedural and so I read one report that their legal experts like a both sides who are reviewing lawsuits and by the way it has been reported that trump himself is directing the legal strategy which might explain winds a lot right and lures on both sides are like we don't understand like the objective of the cases because there's just none of them even if they were to prevail on any of the cases it wouldn't make significant enough difference to like ten the tide trump any of those states. But something interesting that. The biden lawyer named bob barker said that trump's losses challenging vote counting aren't designed to win in court but to spread misinformation and encouraged thuggish behaviour by supporters again. If we were at this election closer we'd been different world right now and we would be saying. I think a much more troubling response. I think the reason. I have not really been following result i've been carrying. I was happy this morning. When i saw that they finally were. Were calling the obvious. But the reason. I haven't felt tense are unduly concerned is because fox news signal early on actually shocking early on five a head who they are no longer in terms corner they they on him in fact fox news on tuesday night called arizona for biden which by the way was not an appropriate colorado in the stanley cup. They're going to be right but it actually seems kind of questionable they. Yeah yeah so fox out. The trump currently was like reporter setting confessed him with rage which yeah because it was all the campaign called young. Apparently don jr. called Fox and was like you have to retract that they've tried multiple times to pressure them to retract that call and they just refuse to do it. So if you look if you look across the different media they actually. Their ballot count like their electoral vote. Count for biden has always been higher than every every other station platform and trump's entire plan depended on him being able to control the narrative on tuesday night to say like. Oh i one make it make it feel like he won And to make everyone have to deal this narrative he's pushing out and then when the blue shift whatever happened over the next few days they could claim in a way that made seem more credible. There was fraud. Fox news caputo that plan even before it became clear. Create playoff not gonna work because the editorial teams did But i think there is a distinction to be made between like their news dusk which has become clear. And it's been like a head on clash in the last few days because you've got their news team. That has repeatedly. I've seen it numerous times. Because that's actually i've been following them Saying that you know. The trump campaign is claiming fraud. But we see no evidence. We need some evidence. There's no evidence and then switched to tucker carlson. Laura ingraham who were like. Oh there's definitely like they're actually going head to head and there are fraud they are not though actually at least when i watched i watched it for a whole evening news. I survived but they were actually even even tucker even handy even laura ingraham tonight but wednesday. It wasn't like that it wasn't like all night. They watched it all night. They were wednesday. Yeah they were complaining but they were not endorsing the fraud thing they were saying. Oh the procedures were. Oh look at that want servers. They're outside the club. I literally tweeted a clip with laura ingraham actually talking about the fraud stuff and i was like how can she do this when her own news desk is saying. There's actually no all maybe that was on. I was on a wednesday when that happened. But maybe the tone change as the returns coming in. Maybe the tone changed. I thought that's interesting. I wonder and i bet you. Trump has tried like he always does to get on the air with some of them like fox this morning thoughts in front of society group. You ever saw but you know how he loves to call in. Because he's the kinsman anywhere he's anyway call in now not during this. You don't think so. I'm just spokesman's can be there. Let people like pam. Bondi come on but even pam bondi pushing back hard against her. She got on and said like fake ballots and the fox and crew were like Excuse me what yeah. And she acted she choose like poor handling or something. She was so startled. Push back on that. But they weren't they they're done with that base it anyway. My point being boxes done with it. They are not gonna play this game. They're not going to endorse this. Actually he won for real narrative. And without that i think trump is done. He's done for like that's the one thing trump needs and the one thing he actually can't control. Well that's why in a couple of places where mega protesters showed up. One of the chance was that fox news sucks. They were with a fox news. And don't get me wrong but still danger there still away n. and social media he can reach his. You know more extremist supporters that way but when he can't reach the general average everyday trump supporter and get them on board this narrative and look on twitter. I mean if you look back over the last three days twitter censored i don't even know his pages of his entire feed barely. Anything can get through You know it's and i'm like it's about time they to them this longtime ago. The also signalled by the way. There's a report yesterday saying that. After january twentieth he will not have the the protections that he's been afforded by twitter all this time he won't get banned he can get banned. Just like who called for the captivation of g god actually. Let's listen to this clip. Oh that's the second term second-term kicks off with finding ray fine vouching. Now actually want to step farther. But original pre president is a kind hearted man in a good man. I'd actually like to go back to the old times of tudor england. I'd put the heads. On pikes right. I put them at the two corners of the white house as a warning to federal bureaucrats. You get with the program.

"Have one so i just wanted to thank. I want to thank all of our support. I want to thank all of the people that worked with us and Yeah which is disturbing. That's not a great thing for a president but he also chose it at a time when most people unlike rob you and me well unlike rob sleep at least most normal. All my twitter friends were awake. All right that's all. I know the twitter people were all up and active. But the normies where they miss this little drama and steve kornacki hasn't slept in eight months. So i don't know so and then on wednesday they were actually extremely subdued close pretty. I woke up on on wednesday. It was pretty clear by gonna win. and the reaction from the You know let's wait and see. I think they're still hoping that the the number of turns somehow and it wasn't really until thursday that they start picking up or late wednesday they start picking up again this whole fraud thing which they are now gone full-throatedly into but also the point out some of them some of them. We are heading now to what looks like. It could be almost a repeat. electoral college. Totals from two thousand sixteen only as time biden advantage but what was likely the same result. Republicans had negative two percent of popular vote and biden will likely have about five percents seven percent swing to get these saying outcome so for anyone. Who's disappointed out there like it. Ain't the democrats who dropped the ball there. It is the costume system under right right And then on thursday. He gave another statement and this was what happened. Last evening was actually kind of interesting. It's the first time. I think i've seen this happen. That every single news outlet cut away from him. In-coming fought. I was watching. I was watching fox. Fox is the only one that showed the did not cut cnn msnbc. Anybody else's carrying live just cut away and was like no. It's all lies. He's boring now. he's in boring. He has no right to their attention. So they're ready to him. And the new york times liga headlines are getting more and more like trump keeps lying. We wish you would have done that like four years ago. Or maybe even five when he was campaigning. But i guess better late than never it is. It is abundantly clear that absence well if this was a normal election or have been called quite a while ago because there's not been a path forward from time but for obvious reasons Various news outlets biden's campaign. Everyone's kind of been like a little bit hands off about like look for the continuance. Your medically everyone knew it was gonna happen. Yeah and you know what it is they want. I think what they want to do is be able to claim the victory when like like. It's indisputable right. They don't wanna do it in the margins. They want to do it when it's like they don't want to. They want all the states. They want as many as they can get no matter. How long drips know what's interesting is Last couple of days while there has been a lot of noise like trump by his sons who they say and giuliani. You actually took a road trip. I think they go to philly or georgia. They went somewhere together and Made some noise but a lot of philly. A lot of the gop leadership has been completely quiet and they've been very upset about that they're like. Oh yeah we're noticing. The people who are not stepping up not saying anything lindsey. Graham was specifically called out donald trump junior and then the next day. He appears on fox and says. I'm gonna pledge half a million dollars to the next day within tim minutes. He tweeted. He's going on fox that night. I was that yeah like like one day for me. I'm sorry don jr. tweets at graham like jump grandma's leg which fox showed you want me jump on you know. I was surprised at that. Because i thought granted one hit out his his election john freedom but he's not free trumpism. It never will be well. I figured a little one right and so the fact that he did jump within minutes as you said it it just to me. It's like he. He knows a sinking ship wise. He's still doing this why he's jumping through their hoops. I don't understand mary. Voters are still trumpy. And he's sure he's got six years so the next one but like he ain't free of them these free enough where he didn't have to say a word for three days but that doesn't mean he can blow them off entirely. Yeah and what does he donating half million dollars to miss that part. Oh yeah oh yeah. He's personally donating five hundred thousand dollars to. I think trump's Election like some kind of legal fund the election. Yes jeez okay. I thought he was freer than that. Maybe you know. I'm like what. Yeah and considering. He was begging for money Up until not too long ago but this is like a personal pledge. So it is what it is but Mitch mcconnell. I think finally said something this morning but it was kind of It's hard to tell south waiting neutral kennel the votes. You're not the illegal ones. Why he said yeah. Let's call it illegal votes. And i i mean to me i think that just means let's count the votes. I mean it's nonsense framing with their deducting here they're all republicans are doing it now to try out trump. Where they're saying they're adopting. His language of like there are illegal votes. Got not count as if that was the thing like there aren't illegal votes. They could have in fact on any election..
