I don't know if that is going to happen. I don't know if there's going to be a tipping point. I highly doubt it. I don't think they're gonna let anybody critical the administration in that room to begin with book because of course.

The steps are trying to take okay. Donald trump used. I am under the guise of free speech free speech just an illusion by the way. Free speech doesn't doesn't apply to inciting violence. Donald trump incited violence. Also here's the guidelines for all of social media speech that incites violence that could include any speech that is unpopular or someone else who may be crazy takes as an inspiration to commit violence as you saw. Scalise is bernie sanders responsible. What what what about hallmark for crying out loud in by those people actually did call for violence. There's a big difference here. Bernie sanders recall marks right but when donald trump says make your voices heard peacefully. Keep in mind they are saying is donald trump ceases to maintain his first amendment rights. When he says you need to fight like hell for your country meeting election regularities that is no longer free speech and they want to apply that they wanna put that all under an umbrella. All of you and here is where we bring in completely straight money. Brian stelter and what else in the media this threat of arguing and second. We have to turn down the capability of these conservative influencers to reach these huge audiences. So the first thing remember. Brian is that the first amendment is a restraint on government from imposing on the rights of private citizens so there is a broader question of whether the first amendment is indeed a defense for a government official facing accountability for his actions while in office. But while some craig cancel culture. Let me suggest a different way to think about this. A harm reduction model. You mean having your kitchen staples can't even believe that they're talking about this stuff like that with a straight face saying this is fine. Let's just limit the speech of people that we disagree with because we disagree. Here's what's so worrisome. About it now and always said when donald trump was president it was kind of the last check and balance. Brian stelter self awareness to understand that everyone everyone sees. This is self serving arm reduction. Well what does that mean. What would you like to see. I would like to see shows that do better than me on a fraction of the budget shutdown which shows adobe all pretty much literally every show does better than mine and so i think i should be labeled hate speech more nuisance many please.

"That's freedom for school dot com freedom for school dot com. Okay all right so now. Let's get into a very serious topic and then once we're done with here once we're done we'll once we're done with this. Nosema redneck coming out a little bit. What was done here? We own over all right. Got A White House. Press Secretary Kaley mcenaney Very shortly but I want to talk about Joe Biden. All right so it is come out. It's been a couple of weeks now. I feel like since this first. Terror read sexual assault allegation has come. I know we talked about it. A couple episodes back and we all said the same thing. We're like. Hey Man at the end of the day. This was nineteen ninety-three. It's twenty twenty. That's a long freaking time to have just now said something. That's what we said. Okay now let me preface this entire conversation with saying I am one hundred million percent innocent until proven guilty. I don't care who it is. Okay I don't like Joe Biden at all I think Joe Biden should be treated innocent until proven guilty however. I guess it's been almost a year now. The whole cabinet thing and the reaction from the media politicians Hollywood elites kind of change the overall narrative of that against an innocent man who had an accusation against him now but back to our original thing. Our original question that we had of terror read was. Why are you just now saying something? Yeah well now. Footage has shown has surfaced okay which this footage alone is more evidence than they ever had against. Brett cabin all right okay. Nine thousand nine hundred three CNN. Larry King Right Larry. King's King literally of news TV High News TV news radio. Whatever they called in to Larry King to talk about this and nothing was done back in nineteen ninety three. I don't really know what happened back then. I was six at the time. Okay so I can't really tell you any more than that but what I can tell you is that video has surfaced on twitter and twitter has taken it down multiple times yeah. Cnn scrubbed it off their streaming Zai. Why why why do that? Why would you do that? Why would you do that okay? Also what is very very very interesting is some of the key politicians some of the key. Hollywood elitist that were ready to put Brett Kavanagh's head on a pike have now know that these allegations are there against Joe Biden. But they're just openly endorsing Joe Biden even going as far to say. I believe Joe Explanation. What is good enough for me? His explanation Not Not an investigation. Into the truth his explanation is good enough for me. Yeah even the moderates that are saying like you know. Let's let's run this through the proper channels. We need to be legal about this. It's like Oh like we were saying with cavenaugh. Yeah back when we were sexist all the names. I don't think we call them enough names. I think that's what it is. That's our bullies. And they sit there and call you racist Blah Blah Blah and pressure. You into doing something. They were saying that Cnn during the entire cabin all debacle ran over six hundred articles attacking Cavanaugh. Yeah six hundred articles. I looked it up. I did CNN. Joe Biden Assault The first article from CNN was published twelve hours ago. The first one. Yeah THE FIRST ARTICLE FROM CNN. And the only reason they're doing it is because enough people like us are saying what the crap is going on You know we're not saying Joe Biden did it. Of course I'm not saying that. I don't think he would remember if he did it either. Way You'd have to try them You wouldn't be able to try him as a normal person. You'd have to try them for mental incompetence at the but anyway all I'm saying is I'm wanting to talk about the hypocrisy of it all. Yeah Okay Hashtag believe all women Hashtag me to the deafening silence from the very people that were the biggest advocates that during the break Kevin is proving what we said all along that they don't believe women care about women they're not empowering women they just hated Donald Trump and tried to ruin a swing vote in the Supreme Court to the conservative side of things. That's all there was too and it's the same for every every group of people that they always target right. Yeah Women Hispanics Blacks look at people like terrance Williams. They are blatantly attacked by the left. Well do you care about black people do care about black people to do what you say? Do you really care about women or do you care about you. Know the liberal side of women doing the thing. That's so interesting to me is the fact that you can literally pull up. People said when they did the things they said even Joe Biden the text he put out or are the tweets he put out during the cavenaugh. Hearings is stop and you can literally hold that up to what they're saying now with more credible allegation against Joe Biden and just nothing trump derangement syndrome. I think they're so afraid of trump being reelected that they're like this is our guy we have to stand behind him because if he goes down for this what are we going to do. We got trump again. So they're willing to let go of all their values you know everything they stood for because they're so afraid of trump getting elected. If I was if I was the White House right now I would plaster terror. Read on every single thing that they do. That's what I would do and I would simply put innocent until proven guilty but everyone should be treated the same or something like that and along the lines of if we did all this craziness for Cavanaugh. Why in the T? Total crap or we're not doing the same thing. Yeah for Joe Biden. While that was Supreme Court justice. We had to get the bottom of this man's trying to run for president of the United States. If he didn't do wouldn't make sense to be like sure. Yeah I'll I'll go answer questions to me. That's the weirdest part okay. Cavenaugh when cavenaugh accusations came out one of the first frigging things. That happened was cavenaugh. Put out a statement. It's like this is not true. I did not do this one hundred percent. This is a lie. Joe Biden said crap right nothing. They don't want Joe Biden to open his freaking mouth about this stuff. You gotta say something about the actress. Yeah the actress. Who WHO's Joe? I mean but just I saw the most it just humiliating ad from Joe Biden. The other day where it was him and his wife and he was just standing there. It was a solid two and a half three minute ad and his wife talked the entire time hidden. Say a word not even a yeah or Nothing he didn't speak. The man was not allowed to speak. You let your wife talk you shut up and stand there. You see now old fool. That's what I'm saying guys. I think they know well one the way that the mainstream media is acting the way that the politicians democratic politicians are acting the way the Hollywood elites are acting. It's almost like they know he did it. And so they're just completely completely just just trying to step over it because I think they know that if they really started digging into Joe Biden. They're gonna find some stuff now. I don't know that that's a personal opinion. And of course again I say innocent until proven guilty but every action that they are taking right now points to. They believe that he did it. And they don't want anybody digging every action of conservative. Gop members during the cavenaugh thing. Even the president said let him go to trial he needs to go to trial. I'm not stepping in. Let him go to trial because if he did it he doesn't deserve to be a Supreme Court justice and if not do it the truth will come out. The I remember very vividly. The president saying that You know no not helping him. I don't need my supreme court justice to be weak. He needs to go through this. If you know this is what we gotta do to get to the truth. It needs to be done. You see the difference their That's all I'm saying. It's really really crazy to me. I just a video out about it and I'm curious to see a facebook blocks it. Of course I'm pretty sure they won't let it be monetize. I'm just I'm just interested to see the distribution rate of this video Since it is blatantly talking about the hypocrisy between cavenaugh and Biden accusations. If you're if you're four women at should be regardless of political party. Now if you're a believe women it is above politics above being Republican liberal. Whatever it is and manages look so bad the optics on this is terrible the optics on it is terrible but the problem is it's just like even with the president president the stormy Daniels accusations and now later on even after he pater to shut up right. Now she's come out and said yeah it never happened. You know what I mean it stuff like that and here we are with A. There's nothing to suggest that this woman is mental. There's nothing to suggest any of this and and to me doesn't seem like there's any true vindictiveness behind it because this woman has says something before and it's on video tape unlike word of mouth like with the Blazey Ford stuff Okay it's video. She called the she called back in ninety three. Okay let let's try to put ourselves back in ninety three world. Okay there were no cellphones turned. There were no cellphones. There was barely any internet in every house. If you needed to get something heard about you called into Larry King Okay. Let's just let's just put it in full perspective here okay. She called the absolute biggest story. Busting thing that she could possibly do back. In Ninety three. There was no one bigger right. They Larry King and CNN actually used to be unbiased in early nine. Yeah of course. Because they didn't realize the power they had yet right okay but my point is this. She did the most massive thing that she could do back in ninety three. She called into the biggest news. Personality in the World Larry King. Nothing happened and so now now She sees this man who did this to her and ninety three she witnessed the Brett cavenaugh stuff. Go down and now. She's saying wait a minute wait a minute wait a minute. This guy did to me. What you claimed Kavanagh did to another person. I talked about this and ninety three. Nothing happened now. I'm coming forward again because the guys running for president and you still are talking about it right and all they have on trump. Is that audio from the tour? Bus Switch again. Every man in America is like look was it. Was it good? No does every man ever talk about some stuff. They probably shouldn't talk about. Yeah famous musician or something and telling your buddy. Yeah they just throw themselves Japan. And I'll let you do whatever right. That's IT and every time they say how he's a sexist above all refer to that video. Okay well look at all the inappropriate touching videos of Biden and then add this on top of it if trump was like rubbing on people's shoulders and kissing them constantly. Then maybe I'd say that Bus Radios. Kinda weird because he is real. The main aggressive man bit his finger. Yeah on live. Tv like a Weirdo. Yeah anyway all right you think for yourself. Maybe maybe here soon. The story is really going to break. I feel like it's on the cusp. Yeah becoming a big deal and so that's one thing that we hope this and the videos were pointing that we're putting out hope that this pushes it over the edge that it needs to be pushed over to. Yeah it's interesting to me. The trump campaign has not even I know Don Jr. started saying some stuff about it again them initiative ready. They're getting ready anyway enough enough with the antics now it is time for outside of Sarah Sanders. Probably one of my newest favorite White House. Press Secretary's Yeah. This chick doesn't pull no punches. She punches you right in the mouth. I love it. I think it's awesome. Kaley mcenaney joins us. Do we have another ad? No we do not. Oh well let's get right into it then I. This interview is Super Awesome. She sat with us while she was in the White House via skype and it was really cool exchange of thoughts. We talk about the economy. We talk about this corona virus crisis in the P P P program Ladies and Gentlemen White House Press Secretary Kaley mcenaney and without further Ado Ladies and Gentlemen White House Press Secretary Kelly Meccan any year. Yeah thank you so much for joining US Kelly. We really appreciate it. Of course all right. So let's jump right into it. I know your time is very valuable. So the world has been thrown upside down especially the past two months really and everybody sees what's going on in New York. Everybody sees what's going on in these major affected areas but right now the small businesses the Real mom-and-pop areas That haven't seen this. Pp P program come through yet you see. Reports of these major organizations like the Lakers are given it back. Thankfully doing the right thing but these mom and pop areas in rule parts of the country. Oh they want to do is go back to work What what what is something that they need to hear from from from the White House perspective? Well I let me start with the paycheck protection program because you mentioned that and I am pleased to report to you today. That point three percent so zero point three percent of the loans given out from P P P been about five million dollars or above which means that point. Three percent of the people who receive these loans are the bigger companies in meaning leave. Vast majority are out there helping small business owners back one million of the one point six million loans given businesses of ten or fewer employees..
"press secretary" Discussed on The Point with Chris Cillizza
"Tell you what with our president this man who doesn't sleep and who. I've seen work fifteen sixteen hours every day every day. I've no problem thinking that he's going to be just fine and just healthy and quote What so the issue here is that not sleeping. A lot and working lot are actually things that would probably lower your immune system nights strengthening. So why Chris saying that's well at least part of it is because she wants to project Com for Donald Trump that the the president is not panicking that the American people shouldn't panic which is a good thing but the other part of it and this is less good is donald trump. Fashions himself as a man's man. He's not somebody who runs from viruses. He runs at viruses If that even thing that's what Donald trump in his mind's eye sees and what he believes his election and his presidency is all about so therefore you have quotes like these which are deeply irresponsible to an American public who is looking for facts transparency and just plain honesty from their president smarts. And we're not getting that from the White House. Press Secretary and candidly. We're not really getting it from the president of the United States either. That should be concerning whether you're a Republican Democrat Independent Green Party activist. Whatever you are in a situation like this. We want the White House to be giving us the straight facts and we want our president to be doing things like washing your hands and other guidelines at the CDC in the NHL put out to avoid the spread of the corona virus. And that's why what Grisham said I think is just sort of stunning. But then also if you think about it in the context of the broader trump administration. Not all that surprising. And that's the point for March ninth. Two thousand twenty four more.

You know, they have to, they're getting it from the press, but also from the the president, I was watching the video of Nixon shoving, his press secretary of Air Force One. Well, there's no, there's no doubt that the press secretary serves to mask. No. Well, there's no doubt that some press secretary see themselves as serving two masters. Mike McCurry certainly did he thought he needed to serve the press and serve the president and try mightily, never to lie to the press. During the Trump administration is a little bit different. The press secretary more or less has an audience of one that's true of any Trump administration official who goes on television. They're they're communicating or performing for the president and the president likes it when the press is excoriated or when the press secretary pushes back against the press. I think the most famous instance of this, of course, was Sean Spicer's, very first press conference. Where the president literally sent him out to the briefing room to insist that his inauguration was the most heavily attended augury in history, which turns out not to be true. It's important even in this post truth era that were in with Donald Trump, it is important for the press secretary to retain their credibility and to try as much as possible to be accurate until the truth. That's why you hear press secretaries, including Sarah. Sanders often say this to the best of my knowledge. Here's this piece of information or I haven't spoken to the president about that or, you know, I haven't asked him that question. I haven't discussed this with him so better to be ignorant than inaccurate. Yeah, on that at does dimensions of the way staff ever lied to or withhold information from the press secretary so that they can be ignorant and don't have to lie to the press about something. Sure that's called plausible deniability apps. -olutely better to be out of the loop then to be saying something that turns out to be false Y you know, there's so much discussion now the truth doesn't matter anymore. Objective facts. Don't matter the the Trump believes that he can pretty much say whatever he wants and it won't matter. But credibility does matter what happens when the president is asking Americans to sacrifice because of something that he's decided as important to do. He has to have credibility for that. What happens when the president is asking US allies to follow the US in some kind of endeavor or or military action? You know, credibility is important. And if you are cavalier with the facts, they'll come a time when nobody will believe you and you'll need them to. Are there any particularly memorable moments from those briefings in your in your tenure of reporting on them that you could like to share. Oh, boy. Oh, boy. I mean, you could you could you could use the most current examples where you know the press secretary denied that the president knew about the payments to stormy Daniels because because the president himself had denied them, I mean, and then those those turned out not to be operative, but I can't think of anything really off the top of my head. A lot of times these press briefings are riffing and boring. And sometimes that's the goal not to make news. And when you're in there, these, these are people with whom you've worked for a long time. Are you just Chit chatting beforehand? Oh, even my colleagues from different stations. Yes, of course. Yes. And we all get along really well, and sometimes the press doesn't do a good job of following up and reinforcing each other's questions, but we try. And how often is the press contradicting what the press secretary is presenting as fact that happen pretty regularly. Sure. Yes, absolutely. It happens all the time. We're more during the Trump administration than. Than before when the president says three million people voted illegally, and there's no evidence for that. Sure. We will mention that to the press secretary and then hill. She'll generally say something like, well, this is what he believes she'll find she'll find some kind of safe lily pad to a light on where she can say something that's technically accurate because no press secretary wants to flat out lie to the press and who is giving the press secretary, their information who briefs them before they brief you, oh, they go, they go around and they, they have. They have a pre briefing meeting. They go around to different officials in the administration and in the White House to get the best information they can so they can transmit it. That's why often the press briefing is late because they're scrambling to put their talking points together. I think we sort of touched on. I was very curious as to whether or not being a member of the White House press corps was exciting or tended more toward the boring side things compared to your other. You know, I used to say used to say that the exciting part of the job starts when you walk in. The gates off of Pennsylvania Avenue in the and and ends when you walk in the door to the White House. Because a lot of times the the life of a White House correspondent is like an animal in the zoo. You're in a cage and they can't really go anywhere you want or walk around. And occasionally they opened the door and they throw in a piece of red meat, a little bit of news. They shut the door and they run like zookeeper, but covering the White House is a peculiar kind of beat because you can't roam the halls like you do in congress is more restricted and especially in this White House where they really do see themselves as at war with the press, how easy would it be for the president to revoke a White House, press

I'm EJ. And this is civics. Wanna won the podcast fresher course on the basics of our democracy and today the White House press secretary, really excited for this one. Our guest has been through myriad, press secretary's. It is Mara Liasson national political correspondent for NPR. Great. Let's do it. All right. Well, Mara, thank you so much for joining us welcomed civics one. Thanks for having me. So I guess let's start with the very brass tacks. What is the job of the press secretary? The job of the press secretary is to communicate the president's agenda to answer questions from the press and beyond that every press secretary has defined the job a little bit differently. Have you reported for several different press secretary? I have covered three White House's Bill Clinton Barack Obama. And now Donald Trump, I was the national political correspondent during George W Bush. So I wasn't at the White House every day, or I wasn't part of the White House rotation. But for those other three presidents, I was and every one of the press secretary's for those presidents had a slightly different approach to the job. Mike McCurry who was Bill Clinton's, press secretary was famous for saying his job was to be as truthful as possible and as helpful as possible to the press while also trying to communicate his bosses agenda and put it in the best possible light other press secretaries, have seen their job as more calm as a combatant as pushing back against the press demonizing the press kind of using the press as a foil and the communication part. The explaining. The administration's agenda has been secondary to those prosecutors. So it just depends on the president and the administration. But one thing I'm curious about is if you could describe sort of the scene when you step into a White House, press conference because you've been to a couple of these. What's it like when you're are you sitting around waiting for a while? Are you talking about a presidential press conference or or just a regular press briefing, both? What's the difference between the two of them? Well, there's a couple. There's a coup-. There's many different ways that the president and the press secretary communicate with the press. The most famous is a presidential press conference where it's formal, the president stands there and takes questions from reporters. Most presidents did a lot of those. Donald Trump has only done one in February of twenty seventeen one formal standalone solo, press conference. However, Donald Trump does interact with the press allot. He answers questions at what we call pool sprays, where a small group of reporters ushered into. The cabinet room or the Oval Office, and he's meeting with someone or he signing something, and he answers a few questions on the fly or he's going out to the helicopter or he's coming out of Air Force One. So he interacts with the press that way. Then there's the foreign leader press conference which under Trump has become what's known as to and to each leader takes two questions from their own press corps. So the president answers to questions from American reporters, and then the foreign leader calls on two of the traveling, press corps that has come with him from his country. Then there's the press briefing which happens every day that Sarah Sanders standing in the briefing room, we've had many different press secretary's use the briefing in different ways. In past administrations, they stood there until all the questions were finished. Sometimes it could be as long as an hour. Sarah Sanders keeps it very brief. Sometimes she eats up a lot of time at the top by reading from prepared REM. Marks making some announcements. But the biggest, I guess the biggest C change for me was when the daily press briefing was televised. There are many secretaries who've come to regret that because it does lead to grandstanding by some reporters and it's less useful and more of a confrontation and in those daily briefings, how does the press secretary choose who they're going to call on in the press briefing? The press secretary can call on whoever she wants a same thing in the press in a press conference with the president. But Sarah Sanders generally not always, but generally does what past press secretaries have done, which is starts with the front row, the wire services sit in the front row and so do the representatives of the major television networks, cable outlet outlets I sit in the second row. So the first row is NBC ABC C N and FOX Reuters. A P in the second row is the Washington Post, the New York Times NPR Bloomberg CBS, radio at cetera. So so generally she starts with the first row, but then she goes on whoever she wants. And in terms of that seating, is that something that the press secretary decides on the seating is determined by the White House Correspondents Association? We actually have assigned seats. My seat has a metal plaque on it that says, NPR and I am not a, let's see, I, I'm not exactly sure how those decisions get made, but I can tell you that NPR used to have a seat farther back way over on the left littering Clinton, yes. But during Clinton's somehow or other, they moved me up to the second row, right in the middle. I've had not quite sure how that happened. You know, sometimes news, news organizations go out of business, they lose their seat in the. Leafing room, things get shuffled around, does the press secretary play favorites at all in terms of who they're doling information out to or they're calling? Well, first of all, they're doling out information to everybody. We're all sitting there. It's carrying live on TV, but in terms of who they call on, yes, there's no doubt that sometimes press secretary's will go to what they consider to be a friendly reporter just for some relief or a reporter who's marginal or is guaranteed to ask a question totally off topic, a shirt. There's a strategy to this, but don't forget the press briefing even though it's the most public way that the press secretary in the and the White House interacts with the press because it's televised is not the most important way that journalists get information from the White House because we're spending all day trying to ask questions of administration officials on background off the record away from the cameras in terms of the job, what kind of qualifications is. Is good for someone to become a press secretary and iron stomach. And a thick skin. Somebody who's unflappable generally someone who has a pretty even demeanor. I don't think especially for television, which rewards cool over hot hotheaded press secretary would do very well. But Sarah Sanders actually has a very good personality to be the press secretary. She's very even.

"Arkansas in very rooted there what are the implications of bringing a cultural attitude rather than necessarily some kind of commit to factual discourse to that podium kentley we'll look at this the culture is absolute contempt for the media and president trump of obviously had spent a great deal of time trying to build this narrative that the that the media are not to be trusted where the enemy were you know where the fake news of propagators it cetera so why would anyone expect the press secretary to bring something other than that attitude to the room now now if she had come from the press corps as so many previous press secretaries have i think you'd see something very different taking place for one thing there's this understanding that that you under that of kind of a mutual experience and goals and there's even though the the press secretary might have uh might be seen as having cross over to the dark side he he or she would be somewhat uh selfaware end and humble selfeffacing and about that so there is a clear geology when there's a that shared experience moreover the press secretary and that circumstance would under seeing more or less what the reporters are after and if he can't give it to them than you know there's a everybody kind of accepts that to it's just a it's a different attitude altogether and i've major having been in the room a lot more than i have would would probably be able to expand on that i think i mean major maybe you don't deserve collegiality yemen's white house or not.

"She said this is what he meant to say and by the way she's not the first press secretary to have to clarify what the president actually met i went on said going around that lock yep and but if you look at this from the perspective of just everyday americans who are watching this a by the way i think we can say this is maybe the first time in history that the press briefing has become a destination it's popular soap operas people can't wait to to watch the next episode um but you know with you're looking at it from that perspective she's answering that question perfectly well and the reporters being obnoxious so what does this say about our discourse going forward it is sir it's it's simply amplifies i think th the division that we that we talk about all the time that people really do perceive and see things in completely different ways when given and presented with the same set of facts of this is probably not the best example of of sara obviating the truth but yet it's it's some you know i there would have been a simpler with it a solution i think it had she just said we'll look i think he probably misspoke what he meant was blah blah blah and that's kind of the end of the story instead of just digging in her heels and refusing to budge the thing is a major donald trump knows full well or i would think the advantage of sitting with the highest tax nation in the world sure which we are not even close to being but that that's a very big claim that could make a lot of people turning her to say what.
