"Do you. Do you agree by the way that That you can get bipartisan. Support for increased to fifteen dollars an hour on the minimum wage. Yeah if five or six I was going to be a real deal pushback though the waiver it down a buck or two in some of the states were fifteen bucks is not the same as other places. I mean you could also do you. Can you can do two or three things you need. Do fifteen over five four years. You can use a lotta clever move around this. Yeah there's little mare there's room for some infrastructure There is there is some stuff to to do and You know so. I kinda hopeful. Just but if he he the best thing for his revenue guys is to get people back to work best for everybody country club's best for not extend unemployment benefits every week for a hundred billion dollars so that is vaccine distribution x. seen equals government revenue local revenue itself. Solve all the problems. But boy it's a whole new world in six months if all those projections go back right side up because people are working again. I think he's handled this impeachment the right way which is like i was hired to get us out of this mess. K- i was hired to get these vaccines going. I was hired to get our economy going. This is a matter for the congress. What trump did was egregious. They need to do whatever they're gonna do. But if you were over there strategizing and it's no doubt. Schumer is talking to him about it. How how do you think by is urging him or do you think he is instructing him to proceed. I mean well. I think you'll figure out what bind setting by the time. What nancy does with sending it over still holding. Onto the article they have in com- communicated to that you. Yes so that the moment that happens. Who's a couple things one is. When does nancy the speaker send it to beyonce's organizing the senate for the impeachment which has to happen immediately. What is superior court justice. Roberts does only do the beginning and then walk away which puts a clear that he is. He asked to pry because it's not a sitting president. that's right set third. Thanks for finishing thoughts for me as somebody has hired a job but somebody has to do it. Look there's already clearly five ocher unique You need seventeen. I think there's a there's always like with everything you've got to have an off ramp. There is a potential that as the impeachment mushroom cloud blocks confirmations blots the spending bill etc they can send it back to committee the fourteenth the big issue where the debt where democrat-republican public really support. Which is banning trump from running again. There's big majorities for that. The fourteenth amendment needs only sixty votes to get that done. And then you do weight central. Which mcconnell was talking about which has the moral condemnation bat road exists. You're not there yet. It's dhamma highway nobody's ahead. You get your moral bipartisan condemnation. And you get the sixty votes and mcconnell will lead that effort because he wants to. He wants to get this python off his bat. Totally in fact the big question i think for schumer is a conversation with mcconnell which is basically mitch for therapy. My guys need five days of screaming about trump. There's no stopping that you know. They got their own voters in real world. You want five days. You want ten To make your move at. There's a move to make because it's down to your votes whether or not mcconnell can can find the extra seven or eight and that factor. Right now is boiling in the senate cock. Is there watching a. they're looking. Ram off ramp. Mcconnell always moves last when he has his votes esso's poker hands there watching to see if mary cheney survives in the republican. Liz liz cheney. I keep saying. Mary used to work for me at my old firm for while. She's a wonderful person so i always say mary when i mean liz but anyway and i think she will survive. They're they're gonna watch kind of how it boils will will it. What fact it'll have and then finally here's the conversation. Every republican senator up in two years or four for that matters having internal which is one. They're mostly not all we have our share but they're mostly morally aghast but they've got the poster saying you know fifty five to sixty percent a year voters. You need to win like trump. You're going to go screw them. And that's been the acquaintant for for four years but now the different thing is there's a knock on the door and they're packed. Fundraiser comes into shoveled drunk holding a half empty bottle of whisky. saying it's god. There's no money we're going to get outspent. Six to one on tv where strode and they jump out a window forty starts. It is the panic on finance because corporate america has thrown the switch. Not ambiguously about this is tremendous so now they're looking at death by primary voters death by financial guilty right and mcconnell's argument is look there's no accommodating trump anymore. He's coming for us. We started a war with him. We damn well better finish which is kill him so he can't run again in jam up our primaries and be relevant and then were meant all the other stuff because i an overreach reaches. We can go to fen corporate america from a huge revenue graham. So there's a path for that but you gotta get rid of trump seventy five percent of believe that trump won the election. As you point he still has a very favourable Rating with them. There's a there's there's you know. A quarter to half of the republicans who are very much in his thrall and in his sway. It you know. And the question is How many how many want to steer into that. The other tells only about half on him to run again which is a crack in the in the loyalty wall but it needs time. It needs time to burn. Trump needs to get out of the daily news cycle which is going to start to happen it. There's hope there but waiting around for trump to get better as a suicide strategy for the rs. Yeah but the other thing is look he first of all we all know. The swath of ex-president declines your precipitously second is cut off from his normal forms accumulation alternative communication his ability in and he. You know the guys just four people in a real estate firm doing branding doesn't have any fundraising operation organizational places to recruit people for primary. And if you can't talk on twitter or facebook he has no way to say. Here are the five people i wanna go. Targeting beat so he will diminish on the other hand since there's no love lost between him mcconnell countdown for his tax cuts in his judges. It is time to put a stake. Yeah mcconnell then that's why mccown configure Here's the thing rather than schumer saying. Oh this impeachment. The for me. He needs to go to mention. This is hey pal be the planet. You guys need to vote on this feature as much as we you. So what do you wanna do you right. Exactly let let mitch get out the old sling blade and do his thing. And we're seeing you can get to the votes. So when do you think all this comes down. I mean that's that was the question. I started with that train. One confirmation because you need your government in place to do it you gotta do otherwise these little nerds inside. The bureaucracy are going to set off bombs on you to you got the major legislation to get the resources you need to finish the covert war and then three probably getting something but you got impeachment impeachment. The moment anti says it. The class starts as you. Gotta make your confirmation ballot. Nothing else. the cabinet gets done. The other piece gets done in. The impeachment. happens in a way that doesn't divert or derail these other two. They're trying this dual track thing because they don't want delay impeachment too long gives trump ability to go out and build fire. And you know trump's gonna do something as holy in the next five days and that'll that'll create more demand so i think it'll be pretty quick. Well maybe in the next day he's got these pardons coming.

Back to Florida by then. So let's Mike murphy Let's let's talk about where we're at and and where we're going. I wanna talk about all the things that are going on from the perspective of the people inside the biden world inside the congress and inside a republican world. And who better to help us through that. Our old buddy rahm emanuel. It's a time for thoughtful. Reasoned low key analysis is only one name one name entire hacks on tap megabucks. That could fill that fill. Yes but was out of a hat. Yeah you can imagine how surprised that we were. It must have drawn out of a yarmulke. Yeah but rum Wha what do you first of all you know. I wrote a piece today. That went up on. Cnn dot com about our experience of the night before the inauguration. And you remember that call you made to me. Tell that story and correct you. Does it allow. Tell it in a way in which you're at the center of everything house that's expected eggs. Yeah original story has There but the fictionalized want has you know it was real simple. Not simple but Homeland security was starting to get intel about three individuals from somalia. That were three Planned with backpacks to be in the crowd at different places in locations throughout the mall and possibly a have a coordinated terrorist attack on the mall ovulation and we then came up with a plan where we obviously obama would have to be ushered out and then would give the inaugural from a secure location but also be able to read a statement to the country. And i could not read anybody elson given everything in it so and i couldn't talk to you. Sound like you catholic call speechwriters. Hey inaugural to start on that draft. So i talked to you From a phone call. I remember i told you to call. I think on a line or something we did. Did i knew he could not do it on sale etc and so Which we're off to me. Yeah it would not always kosher And so we had a. We had literally the inaugural and then the inaugural of plan b and obama and biden. An obama i think by was already know he was already into that. We we go. Alternative lands in secret service. All the bells and whistles that come with having a plan. God forbid something basketball. I wrote this. So i wrote this murphy. This is for you. Use your for your screen. Is i have some of the details differently. But that's basically very close but murphy for your screen writing pursuits So i really apartment my back to my apartment and Rahm says you can't show scheduled to baltimore. Got of the line of fire and after that. Yeah i still in the office. Murph he he told me That i couldn't told me that i couldn't even share this with my wife So the next morning. So i'm up all night and i'm listening to sirens and wondering what the next day's gonna bring and In the morning. I'm i i was scheduled to do a bunch of interviews and we need to keep our schedule and my wife susan and my son ethan. Were supposed to be Joining with the bushes and the obamas and invited guests at that Ecumenical prayer service at saint. John's church across the street from the white house and they were going. And i want i so wanted to tell him. Don't go. I don't want you to go but i couldn't tell that without explaining why and the whole thing was just very very tense. But you know thinking back. I mean less so in many ways than what we're facing right now in some ways you know ch- tracking down a a handful of of terrorists Was Like finding a needle in a haystack. And there were two million people out there you know but in multiple points of entry into the mall but where we are now is quite different a different planet. Now i mean we had an actual insurrection and the security people are doing what they do which is push the red button. They go from zero to a thousands. Now we have twenty five thousand national guard troops half the federal agency payroll on guard there. But we're still a poorest society you know is part of the whole freedom thing so it's gonna be i. I have a lot of confidence. I think other than you know some drunken saga guys leading off a bunch of fireworks in the middle of the night. And you know georgetown or something. And there'd be some noise in the system. I'm very hopeful that it it'll it'll go okay but but we can't know it's a the concern is not just the this capital but every slack capital as well but you know just you guys Just put yourself in biden shoes. He's going to make this speech Four hundred thousand dead from this pandemic the Economy has been Decimated by at least for people who live from paycheck to paycheck ten million or more. Who are out of work. Small businesses closed. And you have this this The capitol fortressed These threats what do you say. You're a quick speech. No no you say.

"On how soft ours conservative never-trumpers are approaching voting the rest of their ballots Well, DEM's always get ahead of themselves. One of the Great Republican secret weapons, but there's a big controversy in the never trump kind of leadership world all troublemakers, and if you go to the bulwark, which is a online news source, some great podcast do I have a piece about this making actually the argument for one vote Senate majority not that I'm completely convinced myself but there's argument fort you can check that. Up I would say in voter land forgetting all these generals in in you know barking orders and arguments at each other the same suburban soft gop, an independent college educated voters who are killing trump are hurting republicans Berkeley in the races where you don't have the glue with the local congressman or frankly that safe district. So I think you're going to see under performance among Republicans all the way down the ticket. By suburban Republicans but it'll it'll easily be worst at at the trump president level because of his personality flaws remember that most people vote Republican or writer center ideologically. So the Biden campaign and those Senate campaigns if they want them, they're going to have to send dog whistles because if they think is going to be the AFC show, the trump attacks will. And they're not going to get as many as they could well, plainly, they don't at based on what we saw last night, right? That's the firsthand but you know I'm going to tune in Deo him tonight. Yeah. Well, we'll talk about that later hey. Vanessa Ram asks about the aforementioned Speaker Pelosi if Biden do think Nancy Pelosi will step down if she did step down who do you think would be in contention for speaker. I think Nancy will not step down I think she will serve a minimum another term because I think. well, I think already Nancy Pelosi obviously is historic figure not just because. Of being the first woman speaker I think she will go down with Henry Clay a Sam Rayburn is great speaker. So the house she made history the first time she became speaker and because of the healthcare and I think she plans on what they bind presidency also etching in more policy historical accomplishments than making her oil painting oil painting that hang in the hall a very big and bold one in well-deserved anger all I can't. I can't ignore this David. Eddie small to all the people said Oh we need a new face we need a better measure. And those of US said, no rookie need apply Nancy. Pelosi has been the thin Blue Line between Donald. Trump and absolute chaos and I am so happy she's there. Yeah. You know I I was GonNa comment on that just a few years ago when she was a democratic leader in the minority, there was all this grumbling and I told her on the on the podcast. I brought this up on my last X. files with her and she handed me. My head and I walked around headless for a week after that and you know what you said she said I I always knew where my members were and of course, that is the hallmark of of who she is. Now people can't imagine the world without her I mean Democrats are what are you talking about where she's gotTa be there so let me say this about Nancy, she's very generous spirit but don't worry. She also don't forget who said that. No back then. I appreciate the. Always used to say to President Obama. She is more Della Sandro than she is Pelosi. For viewers that is a relative, her famous Baltimore, Ward heeler municipal dish and and share old school. I sat behind on a plane across the country once and listen to our work the phone for a little while and it was nineteen, Fifty eight in Baltimore. Her Dad we'll see how the rest of the week goes.

"In the ICU with a nurse holding his hand. My Dad was a healthy sixty, five year old. His only pre existing condition was trusting Donald Trump, and for that he paid with his life. I think that you know along with Michelle's speech which will get to a second. That may be the most remembered line. From the whole first night of the convention and it goes to what you guys are talking about It really connects trump's character to to real human loss. So let me just comment on the architecture of last night that I thought was really smart. The first half that Mike you're less crazy about. was more venture, SOM more risky a lot of a real people. It would the video production which drives guys like you and people who are in our business nuts was not You know broadcast quality but that but there was a social media kind of feel to the thing, which is how people communicate these days So Yeah my only complaint was I thought evil Longoria at the open there was you know she looked like a someone playing cable interviewer and didn't really all that much interest in the. People she was talking to in that made it more that that did not work but on the whole, they took a lot of risks and I think a fair number of them fair number of them worked and as Rahm said, it connected it connected the event to people in the country brought people in the country into the this virtual convention hall and way we haven't seen before. So yeah, there were some bumps in the road, but I actually thought I thought it was a I thought it was pretty effect. I hated it. I'm the grinch. Yeah. Part of it is a scar from my days in the Labor movement, which made surprise you guys. But when I was on the Writers Guild picket line, we're outside a set eva was working on channing rewrite. The story is for Ebling Goria and she she came out She didn't stop working and in the most awkward photo op. Republicans ever set up. She handed us some pizzas that she looked at likes they wanted to make him throw up and then got away from the grubby writers she could. So so the whole world has to be part of the year old grudge here what the Hell Can we can we move on? Yeah overstretched no, no, no. I'm from your resentment and. Resentment and may come on. Rome. That's your middle name. We're. We're we're united. I'm yes. So I'll wrap up by saying I. Don't think it did not harm I thought it was choppy I thought that was a lot of social justice which might not have been the wrong to lure people into four nights swing voters I'm just talking about the politics of this if you hate Donald Trump yet a hell of a night last night, but that's not Conventions hopefully give you more than that. I think Michelle did think the Amtrak thing did I thought the Republicans did okay but let's see how all four nights work I. I thought the first night was choppy but again, hard to do in a pandemic were at your worst. You're just going to do the world's longest state of the Union response and its worst it felt like that. But it's best. It had moments by you hate agreeing with me I hate agreeing with axelrod and let me say one thing which is. I actually think you know usually conventions just push out to America I actually thought this today pretty good job of bringing America into the party and into the country. So I actually think you know and I thought there was some authenticity I'm okay with choppiness they The production quality wasn't great. I'm okay with a little less of gloss and a lot more often visiting people that they projected and I If you go back and this maybe I'm earning my northwestern masters degree here. Her words, her sentences were you have a master's degree it Kellogg in? It. I didn't know they had a college of Arc welding but keep going. I help this is covered by Bluecross blueshield. He's got a masters degree from Kellogg's of Battle Creek but anyway go ahead. Are we young. Men. I'll disagree with you. Great Jewish on this is that we treat guess. Sure her sentences are unbelievably economical their short to the point and lead up to this punch and punch is very clear. The only thing my dad did wrong. was believed and that is a killer spot man. It's eighties you. If you put the three things that kind of stood out our four cases, her speech in that line. Michelle. As, well, as the Amtrak at, you have a person in Arizona who's competing with some really big people and who played in politics and she has the tape in my view that was the takedown line just to be clear, I'm not criticizing the production values hell. Half the stuff we do at our vet is incredibly right into cellphone Gerard at works I thought some of the messaging and are one and you know I'm going to get hate mail. So send it all the David Axelrod Rahm Emanuel I didn't love the thing i. Mean it moved me 'cause I felt her pain. But I've seen focus groups and again maybe untainted where people don't like the trump is a murderer thing they think is in her anger would know much understandable anger but I don't know I don't think that was quite the homerun review it's getting but I'm definitely a contrarian. Okay. Let's take a break right here for a word from our sponsor will be right back. Alright eggs time to talk about one of your favorite topics high technology oh yes. So look have you ever wanted to watch a show on Netflix or another streamer that is not shown in the US but only in other countries, but.

"Hey Paul share tax on tap with David Axelrod and Mike Murphy. Mike Murphy I'm bleary eyed. I from a virtual convention debut. Last night, you know the only thing that the only thing that was missing was a Rahm Emanuel speech. that was what that my only complaint, the first hour good. A used it I I kept wanting to go over to a monk rerun. I was a little bored but the second hour when the audience showed up, so did the convinced that but first, let's welcome in just by coincidence honor look who's here it's Rahm Emanuel. So wh- welcome back when you guys talk about me when I'm not here. Turn around per second I got something I have to tell Murphy. Murphy you started down this road. So go ahead. Let's just. Man I'm taking all overall impressions. You didn't like the first hour and you like the second hour. Well, you know overall impressions I normally start with. Cagney but on this thing I question it did anything change in the election I would say, no, did the Democrats score? Yes they scored huge with Michelle Obama who was a well known weapon and was well deployed. You can tell she'd been practicing that speech in her head for a long time to three years. Know exactly in fact, was probably a harder to stop from giving a year ago but anyway, she was good. It was you know we're talking about that I see but it's right. She drew blood was a character attack on trump, which is hard to do but she had the standing and the and the persona to do it other than that I will I will give one lesser Kudo to it as well. The Amtrak ad was the. Best piece of produce video I've ever seen on Joe Biden because it did what the convention should do, which is tell me things about Biden in a way that I believe them. He's not just some palm suit. He calls the conductor who became his friend when a guy at a heart attack the guy really likes them. They're real friends it was it was pure by not was expertly done I'm sure the networks cut away to sell cornflakes but. My Blake laboratories, I agree with that and It's it's important. It's to give insights into Biden but also to connect him up with this message that he is connected to working people who are struggling in this country right now Rahm, you're one of one of my concerns going into this week is your Democrats are so passionate about flaying trump seems to me. One of the big missions this week is to lift up Biden, which is why that Amtrak piece was. So important, what what was your sense of the whole deal last night? Well, what I. Don't WanNa start disagreeing with Murph one thing about the first hour so I will say this but no, I actually thought it could one other thing in a very dark moment in America. Was Joey, there was some happiness and I think for everybody that's been confined with the not only in their home but family but. Also with some bad news of you're on the economy pandemic etc. Actually think they did a very good job of just reminding us is joy in America. There is America we all remembering cut getting the crust off the top and seeing the real value in America. I. Agree with you that they connected what is not more than empathy. that Joe. Understands the American people, their struggles, their challenges, their hopes, and aspirations for their family, their children and make and I think that's you know I'm not gonNA judge a one night and say, here's the four-night. Complete effort and I think is a first night of Tying in. And I think doing something more effective thing just the economy. If I think in every election, all three of us have ever worked on the driving centrifugal force of the election is economy this one I think they have done a good job of pushing that to the side and replacing it with cove it its impact on people's lives impact on America, and because Kobe now is a bigger. Trigger on whether you think Donald Trump should get another for your extension or we should replace him with Joe Biden and I think starting that process of replacing the economy with Kobe was exactly what they did because this reveals more than just character about Donald Trump is venality. What what what I think was done well, last night and by a number of speakers. And certainly by Michelle Obama. Is Not just to attack trump's character but to connect his lack of character to a cost to the American people, which is what we've seen during this Cova crisis unlike twenty sixteen, which was all this character I. Think this is an important point that has to be drilled. It was character in lieu of your life getting adversely affected Ryan. That is the connection that missed in two thousand sixteen that I think Democrats are welding together. If you're if you miss your social security, check you Mr Medicine through the mail. Donald Trump Rosie can't make a payment on your rent your mortgage, because what's happened to the economy or Cova? Donald trump and his Michigan's, and that's a political term not Yes. Later Murphy et just a footnote that again I hate agreeing with Iran but I've I've been. To in this hour I know we're GONNA? Limited. The I this is what's so big about Cova covert broke the Washington bullshit showed a real lives and when trump's character on the TV, show our versus D that's one level. But now it became real the stakes went up. So I agree they hit a chord on that, which is a cord they wanna hit. Yes. So you can't because you can't spin what people are living. You know one of the most powerful moments of the night came in that first hour when they were really featuring civilians real people and it was a young woman whose father had been a trump supporter and he died..

"Welcome back given. What's going on in Chicago and in the presidential election right now? We have a lot of hot topics. We want to get to this man who we love talk to please welcome former Chicago. Mayor President Obama's former chief of staff and ABC News Contributor. rahm Emanuel Welcome back Ron. How're you so? I'm pretty good, so here's the first question Americans got about ninety nine days to make a decision on who they want to be our next president right? So what do you think people should be paying attention to right now? Should it be you know how fast one side get stuff done? Or what are the things that people should should be paying attention to I think there's like elections in the end of the day. To should you stay the course or you? Should you make a change? And I think that you know who is presenting a an agenda that is prospective to the future and I think that's if you look at the last three or four weeks. One of the things that take away a lot of people are looking at the vice presidential off the virus. What's going on in Portland? Seattle I think the vice president's done. Joe Biden on a great. Great job laying out a comprehensive agenda to the future something Donald Trump hasn't done the second pieces to the character, the competence and the capabilities of the two individuals and I've worked closely obviously with Joe Biden and I think he has exactly what it takes to both. Bring America together. Stop Looking for things that we disagree on and start finding and identifying things we agree on to project to that future and I think that stands in direct contrast. What president trump has done and I do in the end of the day. You know I used to say this. to President Clinton and President Obama, if we knew in the first year, the first term what we knew by the first year of the second term we'd be really genius and nobody is really totally prepared for the presidency. But the vice president has like president. George, Herbert Walker Bush and others, the best kind of on the job training to understand the magnitude of the challenges, the power, the office, and the ability of that microphone to bring Americans and find Common Foundation, and I think in this time we're. We're really Kinda tearing ourselves that somebody that has a sued that brings us together finds our identity, and then can see a future and drive towards that and bring everybody together. That's what I would look at. Politics in the tactical will happen. That's what I look. Okay Ron so, let's. Assume! Okay Rama enough of that. Let's. Let's go to. Our show. We have a lot of questions for you. Last week, and so trump has done a total one eighty on masks. He's brought back his daily Corona virus briefings and canceled the in-person Republican convention in Jacksonville. He's so desperately wanting now. You told The New York Times quote. We've got one hundred days left and the reality. TV Star just got mugged by Reality Brilliant X. End Quote so. Probably trump is starting to realize that the polls a turning on him that the country is turning on him and that his losing. What do you think he's going to do next? Me a little bit well. That's just one aspect well first of all. Let me say this. I. Think on the virus and his handling of it in his administration, the die is cast. He can do anyth- one eighty. Change he wants, but that's not going to change people's perceptions. They have a view. He mishandled this and they see that and let me say this. If you look at his numbers, take a look at the governor Abbot in Texas, who is riding high mishandle that dropped the governor's that are handling the virus well looking at working hard at it. They're rising in the polls and I think that tells you something so i. don't think he can handle changing people's perception and I will say one other thing you know. This is not the first time he flipflop on the other issue. He said he was at the beginning of this was going to be A. A wartime president. This is not how you prepare the country all in on battling something like this so I think on everything the dies cast second thing I think the American people also have passed a judgment the way he is handling both the economy as well as what's happening on the streets across urban America. He's being the force. They look for a president to actually be a somebody that solves problems, not the source of problems, and right now he is being seen as the generator of problems, not the generator of solutions, and that is continuing to road and undermined. Where is and Donald. Trump can't get out of his own way as far as. To his new press conferences I would just say this. If you're going to do two hours Mr. President and you're listening. Please do three because I want the American. People have more of Donald Trump I mean really. Do you think at this moment that was missing for? His political survival is, but people don't have at. This point is more of Donald Trump. And so he is his own worst enemy at this point and I think that's going to be the problem for them and I. do think as I said earlier. This election is either change your status quo, and there's nothing about what's going on. You say let's stay on this course and path, and that's why he's flip flop. Disagree with that, but that being said the Biden campaign has reportedly declined another Fox. News Sunday interview with Chris Wallace. This is obviously on the heels of Chris. Wallace says now infamous trump. Sit down a few weeks ago, but Wallace says he's going to keep asking every week. I think by needs to sit down with anybody I. Think the idea that he's possibly knocked going into the debates and not going to do any kind of real. Sit Down Interview with journalists. That maybe isn't as friendly as the ones he's been doing is problematic Do you agree with me or do you think he can just stay silent and quiet and stay in his home until election day. Let me, say I agree and disagree on the. On the disagree part, I would just say he hasn't sat down. He's actually laid out I. Think a pretty robust perspective agenda second is. You should sit down with journalists. They should be given the opportunity to ask you. The questions and I do also think that is actually my own view of format. The vice president shown to be very welcoming to that format and shines in many ways now who they picked do it how many times they picked to do it. That's up to them but I think they've actually now. This is on the tactic part I think they've made this election in pretty good election of trump versus trump and trump's not winning that they've gone out. Made, speeches on climate change made speeches I think one's coming up on housing. One is on a by America, etc, and then receded and let Donald Trump take more of the airtime and more the views, and that's actually hurting trump, but I do think there's going to be moments in times in the next nine days that they should sit down with journalists and do a one on one, because that has been a format that actually accentuates I think Biden's compassion and strength, and it is in the end of the day's not just policies, although the ideas value..
"rahm emanuel" Discussed on The View
"Modern American history from the pandemic response to rebuilding the economy to nationwide protests training violent. What's the biggest issue that will influence voters when they cast their ballots? This week of you is new and politics. Get Hot with Susan. Rice plus watch what happens when Andy Cohen POPs in then the biggest diva. Miss, piggy takes on the ladies. Loss carry Washington brings her view this view on ABC. Still Ahead President, Obama's former chief of staff and former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is ally with his view on whether president. Trump's new tone on the pandemic response will not are at the polls in November and an all new oprah edition of You your deal. Welcome back in ninety nine days until the election and we have a lot to get into with rahm Emanuel about that in a little bit, but this weekend also saw the return of sports, and it was a full political statements from everywhere really from the wnba players walking out during the anthem. Wearing say her name to honor Brianna tailored to baseball players, sharing a black ribbon, taking pre-game knee and The question is has the tide turned on accepting sideline protests. Are we use sunny? What do you think? Well I think there's no question about it. And athletes and activism have just bets been around for a very long time, and I think people. Understand that they've embraced it. We go back to I think. As far as I can remember, but certainly the nineteen sixty eight black power salute with Tommy, Smith and John, Carlos you think about Muhammad Ali and Kareem abdul-jabbar. You think about. Michael, Jordan who? DETTORI ously really didn't come out and said even during the last documentary and I'm not a politician. He just came out. In May two thousand twenty with a tweet. Saying know enough is enough and speaking about Racism Colin. Kaepernick was one of the first in recent times. You know restart this kind of movement, but athletes are coming out all over right now and. and standing up, and being much more political, and I think now is the time to do it and I think it is being embraced. So Joy. J-, Do you? Feel that there's a problem with players who? Maybe didn't take like a giant player. Sam coon Rod. Believe he didn't take it? For religious reasons, he said I. Don't I think that's just fine I mean look at. Here's what we've come to in three years ago. This is what trump said. A group of supporters during the campaign rally call. Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners when someone disrespects our flag to say, get that son of a bitch off the field right now out. He's fired. He's fired unquote. Well, you know. Know, you have thirty four or five or so players and coaches kneeling and one player decides not to do it. Why focus on that one person the times they are changing, and the tide is turning. You can't really you know say that. We haven't made tremendous progress in the past three years in this particular area, so it's fine with me if he doesn't want to do, it doesn't have to do is a spontaneous movement going on? Right and you know who said. If players want to protest, they should run for office. He said that apparently when he sat down with Jay Portnoy from Barstool sports. But what struck you about that interview, Megan. I mean just the fact that he did it at all Dave Portnoy is ahead of a media conglomerate called Barstool Sports, which is huge and sort of it's not only just a sports company, but they also do very popular podcast. There's one called pardon my take that. My husband plays every single day, and what's interesting to me as he's sort of taking a page out of President Obama's between two ferns. Book he's doing interviews with more unorthodox people. He is reaching out to people who are sort of Omni, in popular culture and I watched the entire interview and Dave had a very. Conversational interview with President Trump. He seemed very relaxed. He got hit pretty hard by journalists for not doing. An interview with the more serious journalist, even though he had just gotten off of doing one with Chris, Wallace, and actually thought president trump seemed more relaxed in the interview, and it'll just be interesting to see what happens going forward, because even in the Barstool sports family in and of itself there's a popular podcast called big cat who started speaking about how he doesn't want his. His podcast. He doesn't want Barstool sports to be politicized and he'd actually been offered an interview with vice, presidential or presidential candidate Joe, Biden and he. He said he didn't want to do it. So it'll be interesting to see how politics which is obviously going back to baseball coming back and all realms of sports right now it'll be interesting to see what ends up happening. In the realm of sports media as well. I think it's interesting at all that. It didn't strike me as odd at all that he chose to sit with Dave Portnoy. Day Portnoy is is such a controversial figure. I mean he's had many of his. His employees quit because of racism he. He called Kapernick an Isis Guy. He said. If you throw a head, wrap on him, he's terrorist. Over a dozen of Women Barstool sports. Reporters refused to sit down with HBO because they they were. They feared a rape threats. He's been on video using the N. word, and so it's not surprising to me. That trump would sit down with someone with that kind of reputation I, mean people have called them in a Tories racist and then Dave Portnoy says that he's not going to be canceled. He's he calls himself irreverent, but in fact he traffics in racist and homophobic and Misogynists, language and so. I thought it said a lot that this president would sit with someone like that. Well maybe this is something we can talk to about as well because we're GONNA go and come right back. As former Chicago mayor, what does Rahm Emanuel think about the current mayor allowing federal agents into Chicago to curb local violence and does Obama's former of staff. Why does he say suburban women could decide who wins in November? He's live on the view next..
Interview With Ben Shapiro, Author Of How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps
"With US co founder Of the daily wire. Ah, host of the Ben Shapiro Show number one New York Times bestseller. His latest book is How to Destroy American Three Easy Steps. Ben. He wrote this book. And we're in the middle of this. We seem to be dead Set on destroying America. Did you give everyone a blueprints or something? I am glad that I cannot take responsibility for it. I did not give them will bring. But I won't say that. When I wrote the book in the summer January, I figured out the relevant I didn't think you'd be quite literally been quite this quickly, like all the all the syndrome that I was talking about taking the country broke out into the open at once. So, you know, forget about the gun violence. What? You talked about the civil unrest in Philadelphia in Oakland in Portland in Seattle in New York City in Austin in Albuquerque. And And in Kansas City. What's going on here? I mean, what we're watching right now is a variety of movements, all pretending, t be about civil rights and moving the country better and then all immediately about making the country worse, But they're really about Castigating America as uniquely horrible castigating America systems as repositories of privilege and evil and saying that those systems need to be torn down. Whether you're talking about black lives matter. Rioters in Los Angeles or New York or Washington, DC, or the top men and rioters in Portland or in Seattle. We're watching in the end is sort of a lion's that says that the United States is bad. It's just that the bleeding spear of an ideology That that claims that the United States of systems are unworthy of continuing and need to be tor now out at the root, and there's a reason that Nicole Hannah Jones is very proud, she said. This on Twitter that did it that count 16 19 project and tackle editor of The New York Times. At this point, she said, on Twitter that she was happy. The people were suggesting that what happened in New York and L. A in Washington, D, C and all over the country that was 16 19 riots, meaning that her perspective on the United States namely that it was rooted in evil. And it's inseparable from that evil. That perspective had taken such hold. Now let me ask you Does that come up in the interview? Hi. How you doing? Tell me about your background. You seem to be a good writer and your view of America. It's terrible needs to be disassembled. And what based on slavery? I think you're the perfect person. We have a column. Feed it right. And we have a news division for you to lead so to prove bench appeal. You're right. I'm looking at, uh Ted Lin Seth. He is somebody who is A, uh, African American activist. He said Oregon is white is hell. Uh, he said that He warned that the black guys, Ah matter movement in the city is being co opted by quote privileged white people with their own agenda. It is not our agenda and double a C P is saying the same thing. Why are you telling us what we need again? If it is a white black thing? Why we, depending why are white people taking the lead is not the ultimate insult, telling black people What they need for justice. Late is pretty incredible. But even it goes back to this view of racism that is actually pushed by people like you bring Candy and Robert Angelo and Kenny, Of course, the author of how to Be a racist and from the Beginning and Financial of the author of My Fragility, their View of the United States that the United States is on only racist, But the racism is embedded in all of its systems. And so the way to you identify raising them. Is not how we used to identify racism used to be. You could pretty easily tell who's the racist who ever thought that there was inferiority or superiority based on racial race, right? That was the definition of racist well, Now they changed the definition. They say Any system that create any sort of racial inequality or results in any sort of racial inequality is a racist system. And if you don't want to tear down the system You are racist. Not only that, if you're a white person, you bear all responsibility for this so nobly bears responsibility for the success of white privilege to have lived under and propagated this particular system. What That doesn't mean that white people are still in charge. And the white people are the are the people who have you know, in the sort of old Runyon Kipling phrase that the white man burden to fix the entire system. And so what That means that the views of people of color actually don't matter. The only ones that actually matter are the views of people like Robin D'Angelo was going to cure the country of Whiteness and hat and take on the past in of the United States, So that's why you see these bizarre videos of these white protesters lecture and black ops about what America needs on racism. But I also find her standing, too, is the place they're just overrun with gun violence. And that, of course, is Chicago with great Rahm Emanuel rained and left with his tail between his legs but came out with his chest high with his with his chin in the air in his chest pumped out as if he was a great victor. So because the president did states actually did what he said he was going to use his Listen. I'm gonna send some federal help in there. To not to handle protesters on the Christopher Columbus statue. No, but to find out about these guys. Gangs there were running rampant and the sub gangs that are killing each other. They're shooting each other at funerals at funerals. And here's the mayor. Who blames it on who blames this whole thing on the president's and his willingness to cab federal help cut seven I've drawn a very hardline will not allow federal troops in our city. We will not tolerate unnamed agents, taking people off the street, violating their rights and holding them in custody. That's not happening here in Chicago, so I've drawn a very, very bright line. I've made that very clear to every federal authority that I have spoken with. And they understand that if they cross that line We will not hesitate to use every tool at our disposal to stop troops and unwanted agents in our city. So this woman who should be begging for help with 117,000 gang members, 55 known gangs 747 factions, and they say there are 2500 subsets of those major gangs. You think this won't be begging for help? Instead, she's drawing the line and went through. When push comes to shove, she'll take down Columbus a statue. What planet are we on, Ben? We're on a planet where one of the one of the tactics But that's being used by mayors across the country who are on the left is something that unauthorized infront Eagle, who would the counter of City Institute hey called the riot ideology. The basic idea here back in the 19 sixties, and that was the riots or sometimes useful because politicians will use them as a way to club the citizenry into essentially giving the rioters what they want. So Marion Barry technically did this in Washington, DC He wouldn't work with people outside the governments who are protesting, but actually, we're in Aged in violence, and then he would basically say that the taxpayer to do all these people will stop here to the five things you need to do this something John Lindsay in New York City during the 19 sixties. He basically said the way that we can help alleviate the underlying problems here and do all the things we want you to do. Well, if you're a leftist politicians, you have two possible sort of solutions here. One is that you surrender to the protesters simply because You are afraid that they are more work than you are. And that you're going to be castigated is insufficiently weapons. And at the same time you can go to the citizenry consideration. We can alleviate all these problems. All you have to do these things. I want you to know you're starting to see hints of this nationally. By the way, you're starting to see writers say things like, you know, it's awful. This is Trump resign tonight. You're saying that part out loud, Which is it? This whole thing is about you wanting what you want, and you're only going to stop this democratic elected So essentially, you're threatening the law abiding citizens of the United States. You're going to continue violating law and wrecking major cities and shutting down major cities in six PM and curfews unless you get what you want. Well, that's never believe him. Ocracy is operated and no democracy can operate under those conditions. So, Ben, do you get the sense in looking at your book? There are reasonable people in the middle that understand when a mayor Lightfoot says things the way they do way, understand that these liberal mayor's saying, this is going to be the summer of love in Portland and then see the ransacking of a city like we're seeing, and now we see it re re igniting in Seattle. So when do you get the sense that there's a majority of Americans who who don't care about the politics but a logical enough to see the problem? So I think that most Americans, definitely the problem. I think the biggest problem right now is that the media is such an incredible job of making intimate. Everybody's focusing on President Trump that they've ignored the real problems that are played in the country right now, and they're downplaying it purposefully in order to convince Americans that none of this is happening, how you get that, during that quote, where, he says there's no such thing as in chief of violence. And the only way that you could do that number one of your delusional but number two. If you really think that you could get away with that, and the media decided point again, which they have been playing, So do I think that the vast majority of Americans are happy to go along with us. No, I think the best majority Americans know that this is nonsense. But I think that the polarization around the election is so effective and so effective around President Trump. This is the media have basically been able to make this a referendum on Trump as opposed to a referendum on violence. And this is why it's very important to President Trump be incredibly focused last 100 days of this campaign he really needs Prevent the media from using distraction in order to avoid the logical conclusion here, which is that if you actually want this stuff to stop and not paid to rioters and looters and protesters, then what you actually need is somebody who is going to affect you wait longer. The president needs to make that message inescapable until you can offer the sort of distraction that maybe sometimes I wonder if you know one thing I have to say he's been pretty discipline. I thought he had a very good week last week. He definitely saw the change in messaging, and I do think 99 days in this In this world we're in is a lifetime. I agree. I agree. I think last week was much much better, and we just need to see that we just need to see them and we don't want this to become you know that that image from the Simpson nations work actually read that back to zero. Instead. What we just want is consistent level of solidity coming from the White House looking people have been, I think, begging for this from the beginning because President Trump's policies are actually quite popular. And when President Trump 16 script that he is quite popular, the problem is that he hasn't so if he can actually being here's the discouraging part. He's down in the polls. The encouragement He performed about badly de cluttering will have three months and just not not in terms of policy. But in terms of stuff he's been saying would mean that this is a low water mark, and you're going to see him rise in the polls are gonna start to see things tighten up a little bit at the very least before the election, and if he's disciplined, and if he can point to this he really has to do is point you say well, what Democrats are supporting worst. Joe Biden condemning these riots. Worthy. He's hiding in the basement. Where is it? You want to do an interview? Chris Wallace, it Trump can do that and be consistent about it. Then I think this election's been tied up with her. But I just think that we're not looking at Barack Obama had 5 48 years old with his his eloquent speech and promises that he couldn't fulfill. But you say Well, pretty talented guy, Bill Clinton. He had all his personal problems. But man, can he speak, and he certainly was comfortable on a myriad of issues. No one doubted his intellect. But when you look at Joe Biden, he's the worst candidate that I have seen in my lifetime. And if President Trump can close the gap and force him to actually campaign That would actually be an exponential gain for him. I mean, no question. I mean, Joe Biden is an extraordinarily we candidate who's being benefited by two particular circumstances. One Kobe has made it so he doesn't have to go out and campaign is actually benefiting him tremendously. He just gets to stay home and talk to friendly's basically was really nice for him. He doesn't have to demonstrate any level of potential energy. It all on number two is the fact that he's campaigning. As I said before, essentially the dead person. He's basically what you're saying. I am. A tree stump. And you don't like trump to vote for the tree stump. And so that makes it really a referendum on Trump, which means that this is very much about hands from shift the burden of proof back to buy as opposed to letting it sit on his own shoulders. So then, Lastly, you write the book how to destroy America in three easy steps. I felt as though I am well the book by just reading the news. Unfortunately, if the word destroyed does work, and it is getting, I think it's beginning TTO unnerve our allies. What's happening in our country right now. What is the element that we could see around the bend that would make you believe that we are on that path that we have not discussed yet? I think that the one thing that they would allow us to recover here is a renewed sense of what America's history is all about What the book really does juxtaposed to stations in the country. One is what I thought it's not really left right. So much of it is unions versus disintegration is Do we even want to be a country anymore? If we do we have to have a shared philosophy rooted in the declaration of Independence have assured culture rooted Masonic institutions like churches. And school that values entrepreneurship adventure that values taking care of neighbor. And then if we and we all have a shared history, we have to have a belief that the United States actually an incredibly glorious place. That glorious place ought to be of help. If we don't have those things were gonna fall apart. I think that can be re invoke ated. You've seen Antifa. I mean, they don't. They don't seem to like you. They seem to show up with some of your speeches. Are you seeing their imprint on, especially over in Oregon in Seattle? Hundreds. I mean, you can see all the hall marks mean There's certain things you just look for visually raising both flags. You see the You see the red flags You see people who are dressed, own blast at the bicycle helmet and the goggles. You know this is it's perfectly obvious to everybody that he was deeply involved in very active in Portland for years reporter and you know, it has pointed out another action in Seattle as well. Look at what you're going to see right now. And this is the most predictable effect is a mass, a mass evacuation of major setting two years to see everybody who can afford to leave these nature city. But his major said, because who wants to live there? I want to pay inordinate taxes in order. Get shut down in 68 every night watcher business burnout. It doesn't come in a party today. I think figure I never sent right as a broadcast from New York City virtually alone. There is nobody here, Uh, Bank. Congratulations on the book. How to destroy American. Three Easy steps, continue to get the word out and continue not to take a step backwards. Thanks. Appreciate it.
Polls show Trump is losing to Joe Biden
"President trump, Joe Biden, spurring the economy, one of the areas where president trump still holds an advantage over Joe Biden. Let's talk about the race now on our roundtable joined by Chris Christie. RAHM Emanuel. Amanda Carpenter former top staffer for Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Jim Demint now congress at the Bulwark Anzor, Lena Maxwell senior director progressive programming for Sirius Xm author of the end of white politics. Welcome to all of you and Ramleh me begin with you Joe. Biden has about a nine point lead in national polls right now, leading in all the battleground states some Democrats. Now talking about going into George going into Texas, is that overconfidence. yes, and no I think on the straight point I always think. You have right now. Don't get confused with the national polls. They are very very good, but while he is the vice president is up in the battleground states. I would right now number one goal secure those top battleground states before you expand the field. Keep your eye on those opportunities that approach and I. Think Right now I wouldn't spiked the ball on the twenty yard line we. We know what happened. In Two thousand sixteen focus right now on securing Michigan Pennsylvania Wisconsin Arizona. Florida the in North Carolina. That's what I would do, and then look strategically about which of those opportunities right now you have an election. George were the American. People basically want a president who solves problems and not be the source of problems, and that's the Opportunity Democrats have right now.
Joe Biden says voters 'ain't black' if they support Trump, then apologizes
"You have a problem figuring out whether you're trump and you ain't black it don't have nothing to do with trump. It have to do the fact. I want something for my community. I would love to record van. You're saying he still hasn't shown you why you would vote for him. Specifically a black woman. Running me is necessary especially after the day when we see a black person voting for trump. And you know trump is the modern allowed people in this country. That does make you question how much that person cares about his people. So I understand the statement shop from a from a whole white male. Joe By some fallout from that tense interview between Joe Biden and radio host. Charlemagne the God it comes as Biden has acknowledged the next stage of the vice presidential. Vetting is about to begin. And so we thought we'd call on two of our own colleagues who have quite a bit of experience with that process as we debut a new segment on our program the powerhouse players with ABC News Contributors Republican Chris Christie and Democrat Rahm Emanuel they will offer insight and analysis like nobody else as the two thousand election ramps up and rum. Let's get right to it. You heard it right there. Joe Biden putting his foot in his mouth. He apologized for being so cavalier. But where does this go from here? Well first of all I think what it does is obviously influences. The vice presidential selection. Everybody that tells you. A dozen isn't being honest. It has an impact on a weight on the scale etc and I think the Biden campaign credit for mealy jumping on it and try to Deflated everybody is united in the party with a single goal of beating. President trump. I would step back though and say violated a simple number one rule. You have to project that you're gonNA earn every vote fight for every vote just like you're gonNA fight for this country and what this said underneath was. I'm going to get your vote no matter what I do. Because the other guy's worse than me. And that violates politics one on one but Chris. The trump campaign was immediately out with ads. Criticizing Biden does that continue sure. Of course it doesn't and here's the problem Ramadan. I've talked about this before. The Biden campaign should do everything they can to keep Joe Biden in the basement and stop talking because as soon as he starts talking he starts to create problems. He's in the phase of the campaign right now where it's really a referendum on the president unless he turns it into a binary choice and by doing things like he just did. He's turning it into a binary choice and rob complements the Biden Campaign for defusing it. They've had plenty of practice in trying to defuse these things and they're gonNA play anymore. I suspect in terms of the impact on the vice presidential pick. Though I hope it doesn't impact it because if it does he could take himself down the McCain Sarah Palin route which is not the place he wants to go in my view. This is a first. Do No harm pick for Vice President Biden and run by was already under some pressure to choose a black woman as a running mate. He says multiple or under consideration. Does this increase the pressure? In the likelihood he will choose a black woman. It adds weight obviously To that effort and I think you know I believe in I think you have to look at the history of Vice President. Used to pick a vice president. One do no harm to balance your weaknesses whether it's geographic or ideological when President Clinton picked Al Gore. Jason Southern Moderate Tennessee Arkansas. He Changed The paradigm from balance to partnership. And I think you look at it. It's not like George Bush had worry about Wyoming or president or Senator Barack Obama had to worry about Della Gore's electoral votes. They answered a political part of the equation. But they also added a partnership Element I think in the end of the day the most important vetting after you get to the final three will be president. Senator Vice President Joe Biden. See this person. His partner in making these critical decisions and that to me will be the element that amounts. Because when you look at Sarah Palin she did not fulfil John McCain's message themes and who he was as a character and it became apparent to the voters. This was an impulse. Joyce real choice of a partnership and Chris Biden has committed to selecting a woman. Does that box some in? Was that a good idea. Well listen it's his call right and what it does is it eliminates about fifty percent of the population. But that's his call. I think that you know here. It's even more Stark Martha and Robin mentioned. One thing that I think is very important. Joe Biden if elected will be seventy eight years old with a history of some health issues going into this. The American people are going to be looking a little bit different than a partnership. They're going to be looking at this person to say. Can I see this person as president even more starkly than they do with a normal vice presidential pick? I don't think anybody was worried about Barack Obama prematurely dying office. I don't think anybody who's worried about George W Bush in that regard and so looking at this choice. He needs to look at it that way as well given Senator Biden's vice president binds agent so of his history. I've gone through this process twice myself and being vetted and the partnership matters significantly there's no doubt but also that person has to be able to see you but more importantly the American people in this instance has to see that choice as someone they could see as president of the United States that in the next four years.
"rahm emanuel" Discussed on Hacks on Tap with David Axelrod and Mike Murphy
"VP Selection Score Cheney and Biden changes dynamics where you looked always for balanced geographic or otherwise. And I think on this one I would say you have five choices. Three senators that ran the senator from Nevada and the governor from Michigan and those five people are I think rise to the top three of the five have gotten bedded nationally. That's important and been tested and grew obviously in that process. Roms right. I think he's right on his his list. I'd add Stacey Abrams although The crisis probably has been unhelpful to her as a potential nominee. Very impressive but has been only a a legislative leader in Georgia. There are other factors. That are important. You Know Brock Obama. One of the reasons he chose by among several was that he had experienced a national campaign. That would because it is crazy. Maelstrom and it's hard to learn on the fly that would favor One of the senators if he wants to make a big play in the upper midwest that would be in those battleground states. You know Senator Klobuchar or Governor Gretchen. Whitmer I did a podcast with her. That's going to air on an X. files has gone up on Thursday And she's impressive. She's impressive And her Obviously Higher profile now as a result of the process of the virus. So we'll see about that. I won't do the list on the VP's Kazai agree on it. I think it'll be Whitmer or probably but it is so important. People underestimate the personal thing. I remember I was with a candidate once and somebody made a big pitch for all the reasons for somebody at the end candy just looked on said yeah sounds great but I gotta live with them. So it's a personal thing is so important man so important. Go back to this personal thing. Well how often did John McCain meet the Governor of Alaska before he selected never not never you biden had a relationship and they served on the Committee? They were senators together. Al Gore Was a member of the DLC and Clinton him New Cheney having oversaw the process got to know Bush got to know him so I just think that we can look at ideology. We can look at geography. We can look at the state in the end of the day. The personal piece. Only one person nosy answering. They gotta be honest with themselves. And that's why I'm betting against Comma Harris and beyond all her other shortcomings all right. What are you got x? Mary called in saying I just finished listening to the podcast. From four seven mostly struck by one thing that makes said I forget exactly how he put it. But essentially the gist was that there are two potential outcomes of this election. Trump wins declares at the election was fraudulent absolutely agree that these are the two scenarios under unless Biden wins by a landslide which I can't see happening. Due to the trump cult followers who will blindly follow him off a cliff if necessary. So my question is if the second outcome happens what? Then I'd like to hear some discussion from you about how to blast him out of office when he doesn't WanNA leave. Well that's where the secret service can come in handy and pay the favor back and card amount like yesterday's disposable food scraps. I want to do a little salute to marry formerly known as Mary. Kay who I went to high school with back in Detroit and Astute Political Observer. I do think trump will try to de-legitimize the election if he loses. But I think you'll still be bounced out. I don't buy any of the dire consequence versions of that but he'll be throwing acid around on our institutions to the last minute when they bulldoze them out of the building and let's be clear he'll be throwing acid on the institutions after he leaves the building. Trump is not gonna go and Back to mar-a-lago and work on his memoirs He's going to try and lead a movement and you know the next president of the United States and let's assume for a second. It's Biden it. It may not be but if if it's Biden. He has two enormous headaches ahead. One is he's going to have to deal with the aftermath of this enormous crisis which is still going to be visiting US You know certainly the economics and and maybe the public health issue when he takes office. The second is trump's gonNA try and leader rump movement and de-legitimize government and de legitimize. Everything that Biden does. If Biden gets elected. It's going to be a challenging assignment. Nive you is given that. The president's a Germaphobe. We should just send about fifty to sixty people that have contracted the virus in and he'll go crazy and just start running out of the West Wing. Just leave a very thoughtful analysis from From a high minded show it used to be do. We're we'RE GONNA book a Smallish Room in Vegas for you guys. All right Joe says for Axelrod loved the show question why is there not more outrage? Made of trump removing glenn fine as the chief watchdog as an overseer of the two trillion dollar Corona Virus Fund. Does the country. Now understand that gives this gives trump a blank check to send taxpayer funded money of which he is not one to the trump and Kushner families etcetera etcetera. Actually I think transit up rose is out of the bill. Yeah I it does say something about the level of trust of trump by the congress that they inserted language that prevents him from Or the Kushner family from a benefiting from this money but look absolutely. I think that a lot of things are happening under the cover of this virus. That are of deep concern. This is one of them. How about the dismissal of the I. G. for the intelligence community as payback because he did his job and reported the Ukraine whistleblower complaint to the Congress. The danger here is that trump's gonNA take care of a lot of his family business under the cover of the virus and they'll be no big outrage about it because people are properly focused on the crisis in front of us so you know what's interesting is that in World War. Two in the height of the war they state. This is how Harry Truman came on Roosevelt and everybody else's radar as each chaired the committee that oversaw corruption and all the graft that was going on around war contracts. The fact is that's how Truman got to be known Beyond being just an aggressive senator and amazing to me that we an you're caller. Whoever Joe wrote this question this is going to be there. We're GONNA find out years later. How they stole everything including the candlesticks of this operation and the White House and also the government you know. I'm Truman Fan. But I've always loved the irony of that Tom. Pendergast's machine Paul was the crusading guy. Who's right form defense procurement? But he actually by most accounts did a pretty good job. I WANNA do a shout out one of the great one of the great good fortunes that I have had is that I was the In the White House not just with Ron but with a bunch of fantastic speechwriters who are now known as the pod Save America crew and They are like all of us soldiering on through this from their homes doing their stuff over and the whole crooked media crowd and I just want to say a little Roman and all the hacks on slack which is which is what they call themselves now hacks on slack at crooked media at thanks for pulling up a chair they their listeners to our show. Romans a listener to our podcast. Good for you. Roman where we're happy to have you and we're Really pleased that you guys are doing great work that you're doing okay. Well I guess a Lotta stakes fell off a truck or something where we're now officially in radio. We're doing Paola. Here unpaid plugs No it's a good thing I recommend it i. I don't have one this week. We're running late so I'll be the friend of the clock and say wash your hands. What are you gonNa see the Toronto two things one is delivered? I WanNa thank all the nurses and doctors and all the healthcare specialists who are really risking life and limb. Remember that and then recommend as reading today the email exchange at New York Times does of James Lawler Tuesday January twenty eighth in response. He says great understatements of in history as a response to what president trump had said the night before. Napoleon's retreat from Moscow. Just a little stroll gone bad. Pompeii a bit of of of a dust storm Hiroshima a bad summer heatwave. Wuhan just a bad flu season this is in the email exchange that all the medical scientists fat so van. I know there's a lot of other serious things in there. I thought that was the most creative writing. I've seen my entire ten year in two administrations and as mayor. Thank you so much for joining us from thank you Pierra. Great to be with you be healthy. Be Safe and to you guys and all our listeners. This a very very tough time. People are struggling not just with illness but with tremendous economic and financial pressures and we can only hope and pray that we get through it quickly and we get through it hole and we get through it as one community and we appreciate you being part of ours and see next week.
Trump's ambitious infrastructure vision faces Senate GOP roadblock
"President trump faces a clash with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Senate Republicans over the president's desire for a two trillion dollar infrastructure spending bill something he promised during his twenty sixteen campaign what's going on here here to explain is Alex Bolton senior staff writer at the hill Alex set this up trump earlier this week in Dorsey two trillion dollar infrastructure package of member during the twenty sixteen presidential campaign he blocked his opponent Hillary Clinton formally proposing something like two hundred seventy five billion dollars for sure after trump one thing big old robot that failed to materialize during its first three years in office now he sees an opportunity on on Twitter earlier this week you need to call in dollars but that is facing opposition from his allies in Congress Senate Republicans Mitch McConnell the Senate Majority Leader he's putting the brakes on a package that is emerging from the house he said look we need to wait for me to figure out what we need to do it would first need to address the direct economic fallout from the across the borders the crisis before going on to sort of more tangentially related policy priorities which is what infrastructure is yeah you said the the phrase there is tangentially related I guess Augustus of an infrastructure bill would had some benefit or spur vide some help to the economy during the pandemic well I mean we just are I mean just this week or more than there are more than six billion unemployment claims this is a an all time record on top of that more than three billion last week so in two weeks we'll see ten million claims for unemployment benefits that is the sky high record shattering all previous records so I think the thought or discussion right now this marks the record is that the need is going to be more media more acute than anything that two trillion dollars in infrastructure can address I'm sure instructions nice but we are in a crisis right now people need money to pay the bills pay the rent for groceries is infrastructure projects that said take an introduction you can take a year to two years perhaps longer to get the money on the economy that takes way too long and you know they remember the lessons from the two thousand nine American recovery and reinvestment act passed under president Obama during the last financial crisis that took a long time for those benefits to matriculated in a bombing that a lot of heat for the economy taking so long to respond speak with Alex Bolton senior staff writer at the hill his pieces called trump's ambitious infrastructure vision faces Senate GOP GOP roadblocks so at this point even though infrastructure might be beneficial to members of Congress coming up for election in November phase four of a relief for stimulus bill it might be more likely at this point well if the question is what's going to be in the face for stimulus bill and Nancy Pelosi the speaker and co chairman of L. conference calls this week saying they want infrastructure would be a major major component of that space for bill now what Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says that look this this is hello C. subscribing to the attic you over Obama Kerr chief of staff Rahm Emanuel bill number never let a crisis go to waste in other words you can use the crisis to achieve policy goals that you have been able to previously the instructor kind of falls into that category now only people she bills the president this is an opportunity to get a break through something that they've long wanted immediate pressure talks going on well before the coronavirus crisis and so I just think right now we're gonna include top sellers will consider it to be wrong with it because while it there are potentially long term economic to be sure to package it really doesn't address the immediate economic fallout of this coronavirus cases which as I mentioned has created a ten million unemployment claims in two weeks what is our treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin say about all this he seems to be the go between between say the White House and Congress these days well I mean he said in a recent television interview that he's at the grocery store Richard Neal with democratic chairman of the house ways and means committee and eagle east twenty to move forward so he would like to get this done and he doesn't need to have a bit of problem debt Republicans in Congress to do what I eat all you know that during the negotiations of the packaging to truly dollar perhaps two point usually about package we'll see what the dust settles when those negotiations were going on if some Republicans were critical writing we wonder what she'd do to this plane for

"Later in all New Year deal. Hey welcome back since the message out of the White House keeps changing. A lot of state and local officials have been stepping up to the plate to lead and we're joined now by a man who served on both local and national levels former. White House Chief of staff and former Chicago mayor the amazing Rahm Emanuel. Hey Ron how are you good now? Listen we're a week into the White House directive of fifteen days of social distancing and this morning you know who tweeted we cannot lead the cure be worse than the problem itself at the end of the fifteen day period. We will make a decision as to which way we WANNA go now. Experts say could take months to stop the spread. Is he jumping the gun as he once again sort of China to talk out of both sides of what? What do you think is happening Let me say this I. I think that general rule what we should be doing as a country you have kind of two different policies. The public health is built around separation. The economy is built around integration. And for too long. We're playing in. The president now is playing chase. Check chasing up and trying to catch up to the problem. Those two are in contradiction and we now need to figure out a way to make them more complimentary and I think he's getting a bit head. We gotta make sure that we have everything we need for my unit all the equipment that are nurses and doctors need so they can do their job without themselves putting their lives at risk making sure that we target obviously the most vulnerable of our population meaning seniors people with immune deficiencies and then also make sure that a part of society and the economy come back. I think the president is actually not leading in this effort. And you know. He calls himself a wartime president in my view. He's been actually a leading from behind and that's not what the country needs now. Needs STRAIGHT TALK. It needs to be dealt with forthrightly and if it does that the American people respond accordingly in this effort and so I think he's not only jumping the gun. I think what he's got to do is have a comprehensive strategy that he tells the American people like Roosevelt did like others have done in times of crises. What exactly we're going to do. And how do we do it together to make sure we solved this problem? Rhino Ron and reluctant rose about and I was reading of that during World War. Two he instructed Detroit to stop making cars into start making war plans because that man who was a great president understood the severity of the situation. What is holding trump up from instituting this GPA? That would actually force companies to make respirators and masks et CETERA. You know this is exactly the right point I look. I mean I think let me step back and I also think one other thing I want to say about. The president is like in the worst moment. Roosevelt said we have nothing to fear but fair itself in the waning days of the civil war were literally American versus American. Lincoln touched a spirit with malice toward none and rather than attack people like my governor or ridicule. Senator Romney I think the president would serve him. Well serve the country. Well if he fought thought about how to bring us together and find our common -ality and I'm seeing it all across the country and I've seen it here in our state where people are helping each other. I'm willing to send you joy chicken soup. There's an expression of love and affection for you but on a serious note. I think that what we have to do is not just figure out how to put a floor under the economy start now investing in the future of this country and deal with our public health. That has been starved of resources. Starting to invest in our infrastructure. I don't think it's right that certain kids can go online and learn another kids cannot and that make universal broadband a great investment for the country and start to also deal with what I think is some of the problems in our production. Were all a lot of scary. What is stopping him from doing this woman step? It's unconscionable it is. He worried about the economy that that the stock market's won't won't reflects his greatness. What is it? What is stopping this man from thing? This particular time in history I go get it makes no sense. I mean I've read this similar stories and I've read history literally at the moment when they looked at what Germany was producing the United States. Said Look we have to get ourselves to a different place if we're going to compete and win in this war if this is a war you pull all of America's resources nothing's left on the sidelines and he cannot play leader from the sidelines and benching up a big part of America and he has the power he has to literally. Now say this is how much ventilators who on this is. How much mass. We want this much protective. Gary want and direct American Industry in America and the company's leadership will respond in only the United States government greet that kind of demand and I don't understand why he is willing to say I have this power this power tool but I'm not gonNA plug it in and use it. It makes no sense to me and it makes no sense to the American people and businesses not going to respond unless he directs it to do it and they're ready to do it and this can't be done as philanthropy or charity. It's got to be led by the United States government. And he's the leader. That's what that guy that comes with. The office comes a lot of responsibilities that he's not exercising. Mister Maynes candidate has people dying. Because of this Sarah. I just wanted to ask you as a politician as you mentioned. Economy is important and public health right now. A lot of politicians define their legacy based on the economy. Is it not most important right now to focus on public health to get through at first because the economy can't afford time and Public Health? Right now is immediate. Well he let me just. Let's take one step back for about two months. He was operating under a denial and delay. That this will take care the weather. We'll take care of it and the public. Health officials appropriately were screaming at the top of their lungs. We gotta get the systems in place to deal with what's coming and in fact there's a lot of articles that the was warning him of how bad this was going to be etc his own public health people and he delayed that so now we're basically on our own ten yard line starting to play. Catch up you have to deal with the system and its structure set up to deal with the public health risk now. Which is what you know. President. Kennedy you say govern is to choose between bad and worse you now have got a situation where the economy and society are on hold and if we don't also get that moving we're going to have a we have a two front war. He has to fight both of them. You've got to save lives. You got to be strategic about it. That is exactly what Korea's done that is exactly what Hong Kong and Singapore have done and you also then have to deal with how to get society moving again you know. There is a public health. Risks that people isolated not working not doing anything personal emotional depression sets in other aspects of self worth and so you have to balance that and you need a leader to be forthright with the American people and no decision. You make a how to find a complementary approach. No decision is this is absolutely right and this is absolutely wrong trade-offs and he needs to tell people the truth about that. Hold that thought Rahm Rama sticking around and we'll be right back.
"rahm emanuel" Discussed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah: Ears Edition
"A former member of Congress White House Chief of staff and two term Mayor of Chicago whose new book is called The Nation City. Why mayors are running the world please welcome Rahm Emanuel before we get into the book. We just watched a democratic debates which has gotten a lot more exciting than than it has been in the pasta debates. You've been involved in democratic politics specifically for a very long time. How do you think the Democratic race is going well? Here's a look at it? What's interesting just one observation? Is that viewership of the debates is up but participation in the primaries is not. It's not beating twenty two thousand eight when we had a record turnout. So that concerns me in two thousand eighteen. Two Thousand Nineteen we had record energy and right now The debates are not producing the type of energy. You WanNa see so. I have a small flashing yellow lights saying a little concern on that. It can always flip but right now I'm a little concerned about that and also the other thing is that I have new respect for my family Thanksgiving dinner. It looks a lot calmer. Compared to this it does seem like it has become a lot more testing you know Bloomberg stepping into the race might have been a catalyst but it feels like as the field narrows people are going to be fine. You were in the D triple c you have been part of helping Democrats win major elections. You Know Helping Bill Clinton become president working with Barack Obama's chief stuff. Here's a question that maybe you would be. Mostly uniquely positioned to answer. We have to May as on that stage. Three three previous may only Santa's yes but to May as well just out of being mayor saying that they want to run. The country as president doesn't have the prerequisite experience to run a country. You've worked with the president and you've been a Mayo. How much of it's gives you the experience you need? Well first of all it a lot I would. You know the number one job before being for president was governor all governors have been thrown off the island basically in your now left with mayor in England. The mayor of London is just become the prime minister right and the experiences of dealing with when you think about where you live where you work.

"Debate moderators. But they're not running right. You're sitting there listening to you because when I was watching it it's like why are you going to Bloomberg when Bernie is the front runner? Okay Indoor love about you you talk with your hands up. I said my home. You don't Know Sherve. There's a four coming at you or something like that. Jews hands on sixteen. He's walk into Leon Panetta's honest in the morning and I was like my mouth would be things that we can't have him go. You sure you're not Italian. I go tell you enough to date. Your daughter goes not that intelligent. All right so twenty. Sixteen trump basically clinched the nomination because the other candidates refused to drop out right so now we have the same dilemma here club which is very low and Buddha judges Hebrew. How do you think that they will do the right thing? And so they can solidify the moderate. So here's what's interesting at this time ten. You know in ninety two ninety six thousand eight two thousand twelve two times. I've done politics if you place third or fourth consistently been out by now because of the change in fundraising and Internet. You got candidates who are running third and fourth and have twenty dollars and they're like you know on the way to the you know their base few is okay. Lightnings going to strike one day so they don't have to get out who can push it is better than the lightning on that one. You don't have to like more jokes importance. We sit all keep in mind with Rahm Emanuel when we come back when.
United We Dream Co-Founder Cristina Jiménez Discusses the Dream Act
"Did the Obama Administration failed to pass the Dream? Act THROUGH LEGISLATION. I think that this is such an important lesson even as we think about the future of this country and the election this year because it ultimately came down to two things one is this a priority for the administration. Who's in the White House into? What is the power that we really have to move this through Congress and you know Bama Ron Very pro-immigrant agenda promising? The Dream Act immigration reform. I remember knocking on doors for Obama. Biz Lavinia when you know. We were so inspired by him and when the face of came up immediately you see a shift in that even though he talked a lot about immigration and he's intention to work on it he deprioritize shoe and you know you hear things like Rahm Emanuel at the time chief staff saying Oh you know that they rail like do not even work on that right now and MS prioritize healthcare. But when that moment happens it's no longer a priority for the ministration and then when you look at Congress for one of Obama's terms you had both houses that were led by Democrats and sometimes people don't believe me at least yeah. They could have passed legislation at that point. They didn't because it wasn't a political priority. So that's one answer to your question. The other one is the for the second term. Not only that. He wasn't a priority but at that point the leverage that Democrats had had changed. Because then you had a Republican Senate and when you look at twenty ten with the vote on the Tremont the House of Representatives under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi passes the bill and then in the Senate. The bill folks shore a five votes and those votes were from Democrats. The we had had moderate Democrats voting with US quite frankly many undocumented a young people will be citizens right now including myself and my brother and many others that are part of the United we dream so what I'm trying to say here is that it is in the Senate where we have to have a real talk about. Our power and moderate Democrats are now with us on this issue. So let's talk about the success. You have had convincing the Obama Administration to issue an executive order bypassing Congress. How did you do it going against all conventional wisdom so at the moment we said especially after the lesson of the Dream Act Voting Twenty? Turn when we were like okay you know. We may not have enough power yet to pass legislation. We have powered to hold the president accountable. And that's when we made the shift in the strategy to look at the president as a key decision maker. That could give us what we want. And we decided to ask the administration to stop the deportations of young people and many people within the establishment of the Democratic Party and even the advocacy sector immigrant rights. Were saying to us. Like you're crazy. Part of the pushback was that dreamers. Were the most sympathetic group that you did. Have all of this public support and that without you as part of the equation. It became harder car to do everything else. That's definitely one of the arguments that were made. You know there were other arguments that we should not put pressure on a friend that it was not strategic. You know it's not sophisticated enough. I remember hearing many people say task. They're young people don't know what they're doing their strategies not as sophisticated to counter the argument that you raise. Well we were saying was if we are able to have one win and protect some segment our community. We are increasingly building power to continue to win for more and as an organizer. We need victories to continue to organize and bill movements. There were multiple strategies There was a legal strategy where we work with lawyers to make the argument to the White House that this was within executive authority. The White House Legal Counsel Saito's No. It's not possible. Said yes it is possible. And here's all the legal expert on immigration. Who are telling you so. And then we had the people power pressure we showed up but Obama events and where he was speaking all over the country. I actually had this conversation with the president himself. I was in a meeting with him and this was after Dhaka and I said to him. You know like Dhaka was a huge victory for our community. My brother Jonathan was protected under Dhaka and so many young people were leaving now With less fear but I remember saint him but you know the petitions are still happening so we. We need you to stop this. He got you know a bed accessory did buy me Christine. I just gave you what you want. If exactly the nice say no but we don't stop there. We need more and you know the petitions were still happening. And I was saying like Mr President. We have so many people that are still getting the ported and what he said to me is what I need to do is organized your movement and your people to bring Republicans to the table. Because if I say that I'm not GONNA do rotations. They are not gonna come to the table so I need to do your organizing to Republicans and I need to continue to drive an agenda that where I am. I am seen in felt as tough on immigration enforcement and I will never forget the because he's administration ends with no immigration reform and so it was a miscalculation also from his part and the part of the Democratic Party who believe that that could be a winning strategy. Tell me about the moment you learned that President Obama was signed the executive order. Where were you I was in? La and We were actually getting ready to lead our next phase of escalation on this campaign which included a direct action in Downtown La and right before the evening in La. I get a call from You know my friend Governor Chaco. Who was working with United? We dream at the time and Representing us in leading the advocacy working. These see and she tells me it's going to happen tomorrow.

Trump sees his base growing from Democratic sparring
"What is the truck reelection campaign trying to get out of the democratic presidential candidates most liberal stances more support from working class and independent voters Gabby or a politicos here with more Gabby how is trump and his team portraying the more it liberal democratic candidates well they're definitely looking for opportunities to highlight the positions that some of these democratic candidates have taken that might have less appeal among voters in the ideological center voters who might not be supportive of president trump but are also reluctant to increase some of the more liberal or progressive tradition of these candidates so the watch for how the trump campaign reacts to moments when the candidates are asked to raise all of their hands and supported something moments when they're asked to elaborate on their condition something like the green new deal a twenty dollar federal minimum wage these are the policies of the trump campaign is really looking to see how how Democrats handle them and handle these questions and to capitalize on their answers which voters are the trump campaign trying to specifically target and in what areas of the country you know some can be an official who told me that their main goal is to win over union households and white working class voters who are in the rust belt region where trump while in twenty sixteen but who has been who didn't support him in twenty sixteen and might be reluctant to do so now their entire goal is to run a campaign that speaks to those orders and that's why you hear them constantly talking about the differences between free markets and capitalism and the trump administration's economic policies and socialism progressivism and the policies that progressive democratic candidates are pushing it's it's a message that they think will particularly resonate with those types of voter it's either a no union households individuals who working hard labor people who pay attention to politics that might feel as though they are disaffected and and are wary as you know major cultural changes happening in America we're speaking with Gabby or a politico Gabby you talked about the green new deal and the twenty dollar minimum wages being a couple of the issues that the Republicans are seizing upon as being out of touch with most Americans are there others that liberals are pushing that they're saying no way well if you go back to the last two debates that we had in in June if there was a moment where all the candidates were asked by the moderates what moderators whether or not their government health care plans would provide insurance coverage for undocumented immigrants and everything okay onstage to reach their hands and that is a moment that the trump campaign sees Dante tweeted it out they shared across social media the president talked about it they repeatedly referenced it in digital advertisements it's it's one of those moments where they sell as though the entire stage the entire cast of candidates with out of touch with what most Americans would would want and the and the policies of most Americans would embrace and it's not just the term campaign that feels that way Rahm Emanuel the the former chief of staff for president Obama and and mayor of Chicago a huge Democrat published an op ed in which he urged the Democrats to not fall into those tort sorts of traps again when you're out there espousing that will you know we need to provide health care for undocumented immigrants there are so many voters and specifically the kind that wishes referencing core at home watching these debates and saying why should we provide health care for it people who came to the country without authorization when I'm facing an eight hundred dollar or fifteen hundred dollars off your bill every month so he said that it is necessary for the candidates on stage to be very mindful of their responses and the ways that they might be able to attract voters in the Italy ideological center or repel them with the answers that they get thanks Gabby Gabby or politico

fall well you know in this debate one I mean certainly you have when you look at that center stage which is organized by polling in the people who are on top in the polls you've got a socialist or democratic socialist and Bernie Sanders and someone who wants to make pretty radical economic reforms in Elizabeth Warren and the two of them have not shown that they really want to be going after each other very much and you know you noted the fact that this is going to be an all white stage and even though it's the most diverse in presidential history all the candidates of color are on night too and it's gonna be interesting to see how issues for example of race might come up yeah and we're certainly going to have an opportunity to find that out let me ask about those two central candidates they might be question from the edges you might hear a question from the likes of Tim Ryan John Hickenlooper who have a very different approach or say they have a very different approach to the economy and and other issues but what's the difference if any between those top two in tonight's group Sanders and more well in these are to progressive heroes and you've seen Elizabeth Warren gain on senator Sanders in the polls but when I talked to the Sanders campaign and and our reporters have done so as well in the center scams pretty clear that Sanders is not going to go after Warren he sees her as an ally in implementing progressive change but again they are competing for the same job in at some point they might have to draw distinctions if it comes down to the two of them Sanders points is friendship with her and working together there was a funny moment on CNN when Sanders was asked a week ago to say something nice about her and here was his response the son of the war and he is a friend of mine and I admire the fact that we have worked together over the years all on a number of issues anything specific well look we work together on a number of issues and she was a very good sort of okay keeping it vague but when you look at the things that they say that they would do if elected are there some differences there are I mean he's not someone who likes to concede any ground I would rather talk about big issues than about feelings but when you do dig inside some of the issues on them and just how far they would want to go in reshaping the country worn once big structural change but not socialism she calls herself a capitalist and on one area that hasn't been touched on much in this campaign foreign policy there are some big differences warn talks about how the defense industry for example should have a seat at the table but not on the table Sanders on the other hand has long time misgivings about American farm policy said that he would leverage aid for example recently against Israel calling it an extreme right wing government with many racist tendencies let me ask one other thing you mentioned race you mentioned the lack of diversity by chance in tonight's group but race is not just an issue for people of color it's an issue for white people and especially at this moment can you see ways that it would come up well it's certainly an opportunity for them to show unity against president trump because that has been something that has come up with this president and remember it be booted judges had to answer for his record in south bend as mayor in debate one it could be interesting to see if a question that comes back up tonight the medical thanks so much you're welcome that's an peers to medical Montanaro okay we're talking about this debate which could be a chance for Democrats to show unity against president trump but Democrats also face a related challenge how to reclaim the narrative from president trump he is dictated the headlines with racist tweets aimed for congressional Democrats followed by his criticism of the city of Baltimore let's talk strategy here with Matt Bennett he's executive vice president at the center left think tank third way he previously worked on former president bill Clinton's campaign among other campaigns and joins us now from Portland Maine good morning good morning so it is seems so far like many of these democratic candidates have have tried to put things towards issues like healthcare immigration the economy but then president trump provokes with racist tweets like we have seen that don't just demand some kind of response but they really monopolize the headlines so it in this climate what can democratic candidates do over the next two days yeah there's no question that Donald Trump is the greatest distractor in probably in human history and it is very difficult and we saw this in twenty sixteen when Hillary Clinton tried to break through with the economic plans another ideas it's just very difficult to get any oxygen when Donald Trump is using it all with his kind of distraction mechanisms of mostly on Twitter up but what Democrats have got to do is keep their head down and keep their eyes focused on the horizon they got a they got a just make sure that they are offering an articulating a narrative in a set of ideas to people that will resonate and will offer them hope in a moment when a lot of people are really struggle is that what voters want I mean to the polls tell you anything when you look at them to the primary voters or they craving substance or do they also want their candidates to take on the president and in moments like this well it's very interesting Democrats right now have both the game plan and a play book that was offered by bill twenty sixteen and twenty eighteen the game plan is you got a win in the upper Midwest Michigan Wisconsin Pennsylvania so it's voters in there the Democrats ought to be the most focused on the playbook was offered in twenty eighteen when we won the governor's races and all three of those states and we of course flip the house we want a net total of forty seats in lots of districts that look like places in those three states and the way we did that was offering people things that were concrete that answered the kind of kitchen table concerns about healthcare costs and about economic opportunity that is what we've got to do going forward I mean former Chicago mayor Democratic Party leader Rahm Emanuel wrote an open letter to the candidates saying they have to unite all primary voters at and that others in the past like Barack Obama like Bill Clinton were able to do that but but is that really the goal of all the candidates here I mean what how do you advise a candidate who you know wants to both unite but also has to set him or herself a part in a really crowded field that's a really hard job with twenty four candidates it's hard with two candidates we saw this in two thousand eight when really it was Obama versus Clinton and the differences between them were were very narrow sit offering distinctions between you and and the other person is real tough and that is one of the things that these candidates are gonna struggle with they'll do it and some with policy and then a lot with personality we saw after the first round of debates that some of the lesser known candidates got a lot of attention because of moments that they had in come challenging one another on stage will probably see some of that tonight tomorrow but the I think for people like me who are not picking a horse but are keeping our eye on whoever the nominee is being able to be trucked imperative for all of them is to focus on persuading people that may have voted for trump last time to switch up there's been some data that shows that eighty nine percent of the vote margin in the twenty eighteen races I talked about earlier came from people who switch from voting for trump devoted to the Democrat we have got to really focus on those people what is one specific piece of advice if you give to a candidate who is coming into this thinking to themselves I've got a hang on here I've got to be different I've got to distinguish myself I'm only gonna have maybe one or two chances with the camera you know focused on me but I also have to unite the entire party have you do all that with with like very limited time that's a pretty tall order but I think the the number one thing that people are wondering from come policy perspective is about health care cost ninety percent of Americans now of healthcare coverage and we certainly need to cover the other ten percent but it voters already know that's kind of priced in the Democrats want to get to universal coverage what they don't know is what do we think about how difficult it is to pay the bills the deductibles in the premiums in the copays in this price build focusing on health care costs will signal to voters that we or that candidate understands their life in a kind of fundamental way and it

"Police department here they rampant abuse, and then she bat in a fort and yet rum, as not been willing he had not been willing to go through a consent decree and people were understandably not just angry at him. There is real people demanding basically saying, you know, Rama's got so many chance of resign wrong, and I think that, that was a major reason why he decided not to run for election for third term because the political terrain was just so unfriendly to towards him because of that cover up and the scandal that is not the only reason though, I mean, it's also the politics of the city of change, and we can see that in the results the election where all this whole hosted progressive candidates from city council to mayor got swept into office. I mean it's a clear repudiation. Of type Roach, manual heads staked is liberal career. Absolutely. An an and so now it gets us to what he's trying to do now. And we'll, we'll get to this piece in the Atlantic with one of the most just incredible article titles, imaginable, from Rahm Emanuel, but first of all case, so he's, he's out. He's in that kind of classic position. I think of particular modern democrat, where democratic leap politician where he's actually incredibly popular with constituencies. His record and I also wanna add the other thing in two thousand six when he was at, you know, running democratic strategy for the triple C. He he was. You know, he had been somebody who had supported the invasion of rock as well. So it's another area that I just think it's worth noting. Another, you know, horrific catastrophe that he was the wrong side of, but, you know, going beyond that someone like Ed Rendell, you know, hack, you know, one percents style democrat natural gas, democrat governor Pennsylvania, he made you know, he was a pundit for many years. It's a very expected track, and obviously people like this find the home at whether it's MSNBC or NBC or wherever, you know, this is a perspective that, you know, people wanna hear at Aspen, or DAV owes it really doesn't matter, whether or not the policy was successful or popular were, you know, maybe it was successful in the sense that would really is about, is, you know, increasing inequality and things like that. But so it's not just that Rahm is doing this and becoming another kind of garden, variety pundit, and he's already proven himself to be particularly odious. He's one of his first things out of the gate was attacking Ilan Omar when the Republican jihad against her was at its most vicious, I did use that word consciously. But it's also that he's come out and wrote this column for the Atlantic called. It's time to hold American elites accountable for their abuses. What is he trying to do as one of the most Bolton elite himself and he totally elite serving politician? What is he writing an apology, and documenting all of the failures of his career and announcing that he's going to go to a monastery or, or what else is he doing if not that? Well, no. I definitely don't think there's this apology. I mean, the only would you know what I was just talking about in terms of the anger towards Rahm Emanuel. Among the citizenry of Chicago, that has not gone anywhere, people here, you know, coming from Chicago people here, remember, and it was really the activism, specifically of black youth, who organized incessantly and stop run. He'll go to everyone manual public event. Shout him down try to make him confront is crimes against the working class poor communities of color in the city. My men will doesn't talk about that and his Atlantic article, and the only reference to manual role in any of this, he gives themselves in that PC weapons, it's talking about working under Obama and saying that he pushed Obama to go after the bankers more and he was right. They see that's his rewriting history. He's not taking..

"That's grove dot co slash majority. We're gonna take a brief break. We're gonna come back and talk about the awfulness. That is Rahm. Emanuel's politics. Welcome back to the majority report, Michael Brooks here. Joining us now is miles conflict. Som he's an editor and writer for in these times he's author of the recent piece, which everybody should read no one should ever. Listen to anything. Rahm Emanuel has to say about politics miles. Thanks so much for doing this. My pleasure. Thanks for having me. So I'm guessing certainly in this audience is probably a fair amount of people that, you know, even at the they would know Rome manuals name. They probably also know that his politics and record, our, you know atrocious from the perspective of. You know, human beings. And, you know, advancing important causes like healthcare education, police reform, and so on. But your piece I mean it's a user's guide to a really really bad politician. And also investment banker in fact, but it's also someone that you can kinda use this is one of the few people and certainly one of the few people that isn't like a former president, you know, that you can use to chart, the modern ideological trajectory of all of the wrongs of the Democratic Party. I mean, this is this is a guy, you know, there's I in some ways, especially if you take it back to the nineties can only really think of Bill Clinton, or Joe Biden, that you could use in this way. So who had Rahm Emanuel? Get his start. Where's he coming from? And how does he get into politics? Sure. Well, I think you're exactly right in that. Now, there's if there was ever about personification of kind of neoliberal centers vision is dominated the Democratic Party in recent decades it's Rama manual. This is someone who got their start working actually. So, so let's on a little tour from manuals pretty disastrous of political career. He got his start actually doing fundraising, and that might not seem pernicious, but he helped really engineer this new approach that the Democrats took starting in the nineties, focusing almost exclusively on fundraising, and trying to get this a port of, well, the interests. And he did that working on Bill Clinton's campaign before the ninety two election. He famously helped to stuff out some of the accusations Jennifer flowers by doing this massive. Advice for Bill Clinton in the froze of the campaign, and then after quitting one he went onto them visor and there he carried out some of the really most disasters policies that we are dealing with consequences. Today, the main one being Masta he helped write the North American Free trade agreement, and that's a Bill, but how do we know not only help to fuel the off-shoring of American jobs, but actually led the really the collapse of the American manufacturing center. Help to gut the industrial midwest. The rust belt and let's of wage stagnation, and this is, you know, the type of was also we're seeing now that have led some to so much spreads and depression in these states. So number one, he also worked on the crime Bill, which helped incite the mass incarceration places. He really pushed Clinton to move to the right of the Republicans on the issue of immigration. He actually one, quote, he had giving advice glinting declaim achieve record deportations of criminal aliens. So that was in ninety six so, so many really at the center of a lot of these issues that by the Democratic Party to pack right word he left the Clinton administration in ninety eight then went onto we went to Wall Street, and where as you mentioned. He's business investment banker he made sixteen million. Dollars within the course of just a few years. I know and peace that's more than one hundred one in ten times. What an average American will make over their entire lives. You made in just a few years so firmly in the one percent, which helped lead his Monica mayor one percent once came to Chicago. But from Wall Street when and joined the Dietrich CD trip and served as its chair and two thousand six he's quieted helping to orchestrate the election about Democrats to take over congress and then there's elections..
