He has a job to do, as he says he has no time to be watching impeachment hearings. He's got things going on and You sticking to that today? Apparently, yeah, You know, it's kind of like what impeachment. It's not happening. But at the same time, though, I think it was interesting to the White House. A Yes, It's a big story. They're not trying to downplay the impeachment. They're not telling people to not pay attention to the impeachment just that they've got things to do. And I was writing a message to the Reporters of We're not going to answer questions about every twist and turn over the next several days because it's not going to help us advance our agenda instead. The president has made it clear and senior officials are echoing this that they say Senators are going to decide the process. How this plays out for the next few days, and the senators will also decide the state of former president Trump. But he is not turning in President Biden and he is not weighing in Meanwhile, they are pushing Congress to get busy on the $1.9 trillion covert 19 relief proposal, which, from where I sit, gives a lot of money to people who don't need it, but that's beside the point. They still want to do it. You have to still want to do it and that yesterday with CEOs from big American companies like Wal Mart Gap Close, Jason Morgan Chase to talk about ways jump start the economy president said. People are hurting. They're a lot of people who are in real trouble, and obviously they're not there to do much on the covert relief package, But it's just talk about job creation and getting things back on track. We're seeing House committees this week move forward and turning that proposal into legislation. Of course, Senate preoccupied now for the next couple of Days, but they're documented. The trial wraps up quickly. Maybe even over the weekend will be back down the business next week. They took off Saturday supposed to pick it up again on Sunday. They really think I could wrap up that quickly. Yeah, they're actually they're kind of shifting the schedule around a little bit. I think that that Saturday thing was changed. They are going to stay in session then even last night late last night, when we were still on the air. The sense was maybe they could get the trapped up of better Sunday, which would be a big difference. See? As of yesterday morning, they were still saying next Tuesday or Wednesday. Alright.

"All we do now is do a D. functioning. Id Austin Bay which is a piece of bowed onto the skin surface to actors event to get past the obstruction. So we're doing things now which are very similar as like damage control. We would do an operation on they operate on the T- on the patient on the operating table. We've probably lasts under an hour and it would have to be an important operation that will save that patients life for that moment and then fingers crossed and again. It's like a war zone. That patient will get further treatment somewhere else. So they'll if you can't do the surgery in the war zone and they'd go to a different hospital And had the surgery completed nuts. What we're GONNA do here as well we would weights now for three to four months and then bring that patient back in complete the surgeon. There are some medical innovations that have come out of doctors working in war zones. An example you give in. Your book is warming up blood before a blood transfusion. Can you talk about why that's done in how it came out of? I think it was the war in Iraq yes I was very fortunate actually to be involved in the war in Iraq in the military I most of the time an NGO surgeon but I spent some time working in Afghanistan and Iraq with the military and Learnt a lot about damage control and damage control resuscitation and basically when a patient who's lost a lot of blood comes into the hospital they start to respond in a different way news there auction in a different way and sells turn off and rather than producing lots of energy compounds they produce very few energy compounds and of course if you produce very few energy compounds you don't keep your heat up and you become hypothermic. That's you become cold and this was sort of known about over years but it only in Iraq and Afghanistan that it really came to light that you need to do is to rather than give patients cold-blood if they come in with an injury because they're already Ah temperatures lower than normal so that tension maybe thirty five or something like that said degrade his probably about Ninety four Fahrenheit. Something like that Then your heart doesn't work properly and new start to Your blood pressure goes down song. Top of the injuries. That you have blood pressure doesn't Help with the circulation and so What if you give cold-blood as well on top of that then you become even more colder and you'll you'll die on the operating table. Say One of the things I was able to Britain to war zones that he must every time you give blood to a patient. It has to be nicer warm. It has to be at least body temperature so what we were doing in Syria. Sometimes we were using buckets of Of Hot Water and boiling the kettle pouring the hot water into the into the bucket putting the blood in the bucket and warming up and then giving it to the patients and that seemed to have a significant impact and Reduced the Reduced bleeding time significantly and has a a good effects on outcomes during this pandemic doctors and nurses so worried rightfully about bringing the virus home to their family. Some of them are trying to stay at hotels and I should mention. Your family has left London. So that you're not bringing the virus home to to them you write about how in war zones life change for you once you were married and had two children U. became more reluctant to risk your life in war zones and you say that in war zones. It's usually the junior doctors who stay and do the work whereas the older doctors who have families that they need to take care of and that they don't want to be at risk. Those doctors tend to flee if they can. Can you talk about that a little bit? Yes and it's very true In in war zones very rarely see senior doctors rand Most of them have fled because they've got their families They they want to look after them. And of course the most important thing in anybody's life is is your family and so that's what they do and so it's usually the young doctors that are left The the twenty four up to twenty nine year olds at a left to carry the can basically and of course those junior doctors aren't very well trained. They can't really do the operations and the surgery that you have in a war zone is is intense. You've got patients with blast. Injuries fragmentation injuries bullet wounds all sorts of really difficult operating that requires somebody with a loss of skill to babe to do or knowledge and experience and of course those patients are presented directly to those young surgeons young doctors who haven't got that experience so your mortality is going to be significant and so one of the ways which I felt was really the right thing to do going into a war zone and just being single surgeon and operating on lots of patients and then coming home really. Wasn't the the right way how to how to go around and I wanted to have a almost like a legacy so what I was doing was going into war zones and then get all the local surgeons and train. The local surgeons on hand to do the very difficult surgery. And then you leave your legacy and then you move onto the next war zone and and And do that if you're just joining us my guest is David not. He's a trauma surgeon who has worked in conflict and natural disasters zones around the world. He works at two London hospitals and is now treating patients with Kovic nineteen. He has a new memoir. That's just been published in the. Us called war doctor surgery on the front line. We'll talk more after we take this short break.

"Patients and Send Me Lots of Margaritas. That is MEG Zukin variety and a few weeks ago Mexican to tweet asking for couples to center there corona virus couple drama. Like all the fights that have happened since these couples across the country and world of entrapped together. Twenty four seven. She got hundreds of responses. Y'All so many responses that. Meg made a website for them where people could anonymously submit their corona virus relationship stories. And if they want also donate money to various krona virus relief funds. This site is called the social distance project and it is so hilarious here in these couples. Event I called up meg and she and I shared a few of our favorites emissions. There was one my editor was asking about about the lines. The lines my absolute favorite stories. Do it here. We go here. We go day three of us working from home. My boyfriend got mad at me because I squeeze whole limes on my lunch and dinner and now we don't have any more fresh limes left only got those green instant lime juice things that are shaped like a line and we had a fight because I tried to reach for it which is I think. Emblematic of the types of fights that people will get into while importing quarantine together like things become the biggest things exactly. It's become annoyed with the way someone else breathes or yeah I love it. Here's one called man child. It reads because of his flexible schedule. My husband watches are toddler during the week while I'm in a traditional office setting clearly now we're all home together and he is playing video games all day while I balanced working from home entertaining the two year old. How did this happen? Why is this okay? I'm going to lose it and I guess that sets up my biggest question for you like you've seen all these injuries are the majority of them stories of stress and awfulness or are the majority stories of joy like what's the big theme of all of these in general. I think it's really split. I think there's a lot of really short glib entries about petty non fates and I think that there are some very serious and sombre stories. I think just the act of reading them in reading other people's stories people feel connected and there's this sense of community so no one's talking about the human interest aspect and how it's affecting a total like in their real daily life and it's like if you get into a huge fight and break up during this you're still stuck in the house with them as well a magic couples living together. It's crazy totally and this one is really crazy. It's called spouses without Borders. A few weeks ago I traveled to Spain to pick up my kids from my ex husband's vacation home their foreign six so they cannot fly alone when I got there. The borders closed so I was stuck in my ex husbands home with my kids. My boyfriend and my ex husband's new wave now. No Yes oh my God. This isn't even. My Ex husband traveled to America for work and cannot get back into the country. Is Getting Super Claustrophobic here and I cannot afford a hotel right now nor do I want to leave the house because so many people are sick. Here I cannot stand my ex-husband's new wife and things are getting tense with my boyfriend. If I have to stay in this house another day I'll end up fighting my ex-husband's new wife. Please open the borders Spain. Oh my God oh my God. It's amazing I love this one from March twenty second. It's called ration the wine I won't read the whole thing but the highlights are this. It starts in all caps. Don't touch my wine so my fiance and I decided to stock up and stay in before this remake a list of Projects Food Booze. We will need to survive. He chooses beer. I chose my wind and we buy enough to keep us out of the storage for a bit. She goes on to say the other day. I come upstairs from my laundry. He is sitting on our patio drinking a glass of wine. I totally lose it. And start screaming at him as if he was the worst human being in the world and it goes on to a predictable story. it's just like he reading those kind of stories. I wonder and I wonder if you have an answer for this. Do you think this isolation and quarantine right now with the virus is going to on the whole strengthen relationships are ruin them. I think it will strengthen them. I think people will really learn how to have to let things go if they want to keep their sanity. I think that couples are really going to have to just deal with it. Just have to deal with it and when you need physical space find it so you are isolating right now with your boyfriend. Has Doing this project and getting this? You know insider view of so many relationships as it changed how you approach your relationship during this Verona virus time. I don't know yeah it's made me. I think more grateful for my relationship and the patients that we both I think exercise but I think it's a good thing to ever look at these stories and try to compare your relationship against someone else's especially with such little information I think kind of it's a good idea to sort out. What's actually something that bothers you on the microscopic level? And what can you live with and then or just maybe do yourself if it annoys earlier? What's the big stuff? What the small stuff total. I WanNa read one last entry because I find it hilarious. And then ask you my last question this one is called another farting story. I am the kind of girl that has never and will never feel comfortable passing gas or number two in the same vicinity as their partner. Yes I'm aware I should get over this. Let's just say that now. Living in six hundred square foot one bedroom apartment with my fiance. I am measurably trapped. I have nowhere to literally go and that raises my last question for you after all of this all these injuries your experience with your boyfriend. Is it better in the time of corona virus to be alone or to be with that partner? I think if you're used to cohabitating with someone and then you're suddenly alone. I think that could be very difficult. But I think if you're used to living on your own and you have people that you can regularly these time with our phone with then. I think it's kind of fine. It's I mean I will say I have begun talking to my dog. She doesn't talk back. Maybe one day she will pay your like totally chilling in my younger brother said to me. It was so cute he was like the only good thing about krona. Virus is how much love all the pets in the world are getting right now. It's so I was like that's so true loving.

Today were investigating the anatomy of a racial construct looking at the case of Mark Stephens from Nineteen Eighties Stockton. And why there was so much confusion about his race. We're now going to hear from genetic stebbins marked wife who was also involved in local politics and see how she constructs race in her head to come to a dramatically different conclusion about mark. Then Ralph your way. Picks up the story. It takes a special kind of person to not be phased when it seems like the entire city is cracking jokes about your husband. Asking all kinds of intrusive of questions. Ginette says one reporter with zero. Shame even asked if she could be alone with mark and hotel room acid. That's up to him and mark declined. He said no. She wanted to see my private parts. You're kidding I'm not kidding. Deceive his hair matched As an put it all out there you as give you see grace as game. It's the kind of situation. A lot of people might find unbelievably offensive given our painful racial history but Janette has dealt with her share of cruelty and mostly collapsed. Back with a withering. Smile for instance when Jeanette was having problems as a real estate broker. Nineteen Eighty Stockton with white people. Not Wanting to buy her houses because she was black. She came up with a crafty tactic. Just pretend to be the maid when you show the House. Did you ever pull one over? Sure which is all to say. Jeanette is not someone you can easily trick especially when it comes to race. From the moment she met mark she had questions and at wondering what is he so when a few dates in at the risk of being rude she asked Mark Point Blank. What race aren't you say? What race do I look like to you? As always you don't look quite. You look like a High Yellow Negro. It is GonNa look at me and smiled. So Jeanette assumed she was right and now as it. That was the end of the race conversation for years even when Jeanette mark got married. Just like Ralph. She didn't need confirmation. She knew mark wasn't a white guy in part because she knew she wasn't attracted to white guys. Frankly I didn't white men growing up in the South and what my great grandmother when she's twelve or thirteen she head of respect by sleep master when you heard about the brutal rape from her Great Grandmother. She news you can never be with a white man because of what they represented smiling in your face. Soft hands kindness treachery. Do you think you would have fall in love with him? If he was a white man was could be friends with him like joke when white man but I have no desire. Oh well if he actually was why you don't think you would have gotten together.

"To go home to Atlanta. Well I am undocumented. So I'm a special case along with maybe about fifty or sixty other documents. That are on campus. The college has repeatedly said that we are lot safer at school than our. You know then. Back home Well IF WE EVER TO BE DETAINED The college would bail us out If I was a teen by ice example in Georgia is doesn't usually tell you where they're taking you and it'd be hard for the school to track me. Are there other things that I'm not even thinking about? That would be hard to figure out if you had to leave campus. Like I'm assuming a lot of college. Students get their health insurance through their college. Is it harder to tap into that health insurance? If you're away from campus like stuff like that Berea except people below a certain income level so most of us live on the poverty line or below it. Health insurance isn't an option for us. A lot of us have never been to the dentist until they came to. College is really difficult for us to access. Any kind of health care And to be able to leave it is really difficult. I know a couple of people that depend on medications through the school and now they have to go home and they have to figure out how they're going to get their medications last question for you. I mean hearing you tell me this story. It just feels like something out of a movie like how surreal for you on campus. Have the last few days felt they it. Must you must be walking through your day kind of being like what is this real. I don't know when I told my mom the news. She said the same thing she said. Wow that's really scary. It's like something out of a movie and to me. It was just like just another weird day at Berea college until she said that the hit meals A. Yeah this is weird like something. This this doesn't happen Debris doesn't shut down for any reason We've we'll we'll we'll get snow. We'll get emergencies. And the school will still operate and on top of that like I have to figure out how I'M GONNA handle the new coursework and the syllabus that my teachers going to present to me by Friday hopefully Because apparently classes are still going to be Happening but they're not going to be on campus I'M GONNA be getting my class work through email for the rest of the semester. Yeah okay but like. How do you do a chemistry lab via email? Oh well Mike Image professor has in not sent me an email. Yet about what? She's GonNa do About that yet and I'm still waiting on her but I I take a cell and Malek Class And the lab is just cancelled And that professor doesn't know what she's GonNa do either But she did say she was going to record lecture voice over her lecture through powerpoint. And Send US you know those. That sounds riveting. A powerpoint with prerecorded lecture great instead of Lena. Listening to music in the car. It's power points about Edgar. I thank you so much for your time. I'm sorry your studies have been disrupted this semester. But it seems like you are in good spirit and are gonNA find a way to work through it all so all the best man thank you thanks again to Edgar Ortiz. And now we're GONNA MOVE TO SEATTLE. That city has been ground zero for corona virus here in America. They've had a significantly higher number of deaths from corona virus in other areas around the country. This week I called up Trish Murphy. She's a reporter at Seattle member station K. U. as she's the host of their new. Daily News podcast Seattle now. I asked Trish what it's been like to see her city. Empty as folks are still forced to isolate themselves. The university has cancelled classes. So where we are. There is decidedly fewer people than I have ever seen in the university district. The there was a fog the other day. Was it creepy? It was definitely creepy. And it feel surreal but then this morning. I'm driving to work and I'm driving past coffee shops and there are still people in their life is definitely going on so as of right now. Qatar listeners up on all the measures Seattle has taken so the schools are keeping students at home. Large events have been canceled or postponed. But like can you? I don't know checklist tick tock all the big things that the mayor or the governor or whoever has done to keep those away from each other. Yeah well the apparatus that the school system provides for families is critical right. Sure kids get meals. Their kids get their clothes washed at school. You know exactly. The city has said you know we would like you to telecommute. The state has said we would like you to tell commute. They're going to start supporting small businesses. Who are really hurting right now. So they're talking about doing things like helping people. Keep the lights on helping the water. Stay on. There's a lot of talk about reimbursing people who work in the GIG economy who are not doing as many Uber Rides. You know But none of that is concrete yet. What has been the biggest thing you've noticed in the way that Seattle residents have changed their behavior since corona virus became a thing there. I mean we know the folks are stocking up on supplies but in terms of like everyday interactions with people have people changed from what you can see Intel. Oh definitely everybody's doing the Kovic you know which is six feet away. Hey how you doing your elbow pumping at all everybody's hand sanitizing. At least in my world I went down to Tacoma a suburb of Seattle at. I'm interested and nobody seems to care. Random like oh my gosh you guys. You didn't get the message yet. So Seattle was going through so much right now in terms of corona virus But a lot of other places in the country might be facing what Seattle is facing very soon from someone in a city that has experienced the brunt of Krahn virus pretty early any lessons or advice for the rest of us that might they shall fate soon you know. I am not sure if we even have lessons yet. We're just doing what we can do. Right now And that means like hand sanitizing constantly being really really aware of who you're with and touching your face. My advice would be get ready. Get ready to unpack and repack your anxiety about thirty times a day last question for you. There are the scene. I'm seeing on cable. News of deserted highway empty school parking. Lots and baseball stadiums boarded up known than What's been the most shocking thing that you've seen in Seattle? Since Krona virus became the story. Was there one visual of a ghost town data that it just stops you in your tracks? You know I was on. I five Saturday morning I was probably one of three cars on the road and it reminded me of nine eleven ran all the planes stop flying and everyone like hold up in their house because nobody knew what to do. That's exactly what I thought of. When I was driving over the section of I five that I was driving over because it was the same section of I five. That was on nine eleven when I looked around and realized that the entire city had stopped while. That's that's incredible. I will say perhaps the silver lining of all of this is we got through that and I hope and think that we'll get through this to life. It goes on it. Does it does. I'm GONNA Trish Murphy.

And today we're telling the story of a program for teenagers that believes in teaching people how to directly confront uncomfortable realities. I'm sure for some of you. It was a relief to hear that last scene. And for some of you. What you heard was a little bit disturbing but the thing is this experiment has been tried before here and there in our history people have attempted to put black and white people in a room together and pushed them to say out loud the unacceptable things that they are thinking in secret the racist things the hateful sayings whatever is eating them up. We track down people who took a class almost fifty years ago. That used this teaching method to see whether this style of confrontation had hurt them or helped them in their lives. Here's Hana so didn't shock you to have a look just walk into a classroom be confronted like that currently totally an ever been confronted by a black person before no you never been told the truth by a black person. No and what did it did it. What did it feel like on your body to hear it to be told the truth like that? Shame is is the biggest thing I can think of. Just more defined. The first time Judy Johnson heard the truth from a black person. She was twenty five years old. It was nineteen seventy three and she was taking a class at the University of North Florida. In Jacksonville called human conflict. Black and white the class was truly radical for its time and place nineteen seventies. Jacksonville was still raw. Around civil rights new to school busing new to desegregating jails. The laws weren't place but the city was totally divided with violent race. Riots in its recent history. But Judy. She thought she was beyond all that she was like the well-meaning white girl her nineteen seventy-three class thinking she was evolved. She knew what the problems were when I had accused my mother of being a racist. Her retort had been she. She didn't she didn't agree with that at all. She said I loved my mammy. She said I slept in her bed. In fact I thought I was named after her so that's where she was on the first day of class. Judy walked into the room and they were five black people and four other white people and the Professor Peter Krantz. He directed them to go around the room and say what they really thought about each other so they did one by one as the professor wrote their statements up on the board all white. Rich Blacks Steel All white so racist and you can't trust them. Black Men WanNa Rape White Women White Men WanNa rape black women. The one that really surprised me was when they said they didn't think white people love their children. That's why they had mammy so look after.

"To vote and no matter what anyone does they should never stop being an American citizen but that is exactly what happens when we strip the right to vote away from citizens and if we go far as to strip the right to vote away from them then we should readily immediately restore that right especially after. They have completed the punishment that we've imposed now. I WanNa talk specifically about Florida and we'll talk more about it as we go forward here. Florida had a long debate. You mentioned it. Over voting rights for people convicted of felonies. Those rights were restored then last month. A federal appeals appeals. Court ruled that a law blocking the voting rights of people with felony convictions on the basis of things like unpaid fines and fees. That law was unconstitutional. Where things stand right now in terms of your right to vote if you have a felony in Florida so as an initial matter. The people of Florida voted overwhelmingly to restore voting rights to their neighbors Upon completion of their terms of sentence then we had a a handful of politicians who had a lot of influence in the legislature pass a piece of legislation that put a lot of barriers in front of it including barriers that required Folks to pay off all their fees fines and even their restitution even those that were unrelated to their criminal sentence. Those that had Connections because they have been converted to civil liens or because of they were part of the the processing fees that happened. When you become a criminal defendant. I think a lot of people don't realize that in Florida basically criminal defendants have to pay for the criminal justice system and so what so what that ended up. Meaning was that. If you had completed your terms of probation and parole but you were wealthy you could pay off all your fees and fines. But if you hadn't you were you were in a similar position to the one that you had been before we had passed the amendment and I want to be one hundred percent clear that the legislature could have taken a lot of different alternative options. They could reduce the amount of time that people serve on probation and parole they could reduce the amounts of the fees and fines. They could have by operation of law. reduce sentences and instead they didn't they made it harder for folks To be able to get their right to vote back under the amendment A number of people including the Brennan Center brought a lawsuit on behalf of seventeen individuals. Who didn't have the ability to pay? They just either. They wasn't clear what they owed. Or what they showed was Beyond what they had to find a natural means to do an wouldn't be able to reasonably be able to do it for any foreseeable future. A federal judge said that insofar as someone is unable to pay any fees finds a restitution then there needed to be some alternative method To allow them to be able to register to vote while a member of our one techs club sent this to us until two thousand seventeen. I was legally blocked from voting due to a felony in two thousand five. It was a horrible feeling having no voice to contribute. Then I moved to another state I registered. I became a registered voter again. Voila the feeling was almost freeing since two thousand seventeen.

"I do think now that every black child should go to Africa at some point And I didn't think that before I went. Now that's fascinating. Yeah you you you think. It's an experience that every black child would benefit from which which argues if that's true for a vastly expanded return initiative birthright pro birthright like program for millions of kids And I think the US should pay for. It would be amazing. The United States government. Yeah yeah that would be amazing. Isn't it you know Puerto Reparations? Just pay for that. Birthright trip birthright trips to Israel are free not paid by the government of course although maybe some people suspect that they're they're paid by private foundations who who think that it's important for young American Jews to go have that connection. Yeah well I wish we had that kind of money but we know what happened to black money in this country so You know if they're those private foundations out there. That could help make this happen. I would. I wouldn't mind that at all So so it'd be interesting to see how it happened. A fascinating argument though that to make that. There is a renewed reparations debate in this country people talk a primarily about money although it's about so much more about building wealth about wealth stolen generational wealth stolen. But here's an idea that has much more cultural currency right. I'm having all of us.

A lot of us live in now. Their friends and their names are Brit. Salvator mile an as Raskin so. This was the twitter building. Wow this was the twitter building on a small side street in San Francisco. There's a squat. Unimpressive building made of painted. Grey Cement. It's the home of the very first twitter office and it's where Britain as a met back in the days when twitter was like eight people working on this thing that no one had ever heard of in this era. There was a page on the front of twitter. You can click on. That was all the tweets and it scrolled in real time and you could watch. As they came in one tweet to tweets. It was Britain not as a WHO worked at twitter. You as part of the founding team and though it wasn't at all obvious that the tempo of tweets populating twitter's homepage would increase to the point. Where this thing they were trying would actually succeed. The handful of people working there still behaved as if they were building. Gods on sanctum. It was a very serious surprisingly somber space. And that's why when I saw as easily was the opposite of somber is it doesn't walk. He bounces at one thousand. Nine hundred is a physics textbook at twenty one. He founded the first of three extremely successful technology companies. But he's probably best known for something. He didn't do thousand six at age. Twenty two while sitting in a cafe. He came up with an ingenious idea to help us. All move faster through the online world. He invented infinite. Scroll the at the time all webpages functions like real world pages that a top and bottom and you'd click at the bottom to get a new page to load but that afternoon in. The cafe is a decided that eliminating this lag time would be a benefit to society fewer clicks less trains of thought lost more better information found more faster. More better. Problem WAS INFINITE. Scroll was the technological equivalent of removing clocks and windows from Casino. It removed the signals. That helped people stop made them forget time. Seven years later in a small hotel room in Helsinki as a sat down with penance and paper and calculated that conservatively. This one invention was responsible for wasting more than two hundred thousand lifetimes a day but that was not how it felt at the time back then is believed as Brit believed that technology would change the world for the better by getting rid of gatekeepers connecting people directly and making everything faster and more efficient and it was astonishing both to Brit and as the change that they could engineer. The first thing Brit worked on twitter was creating what is now known as the like button and then of course there was the tweet which didn't exist right leg with. That was the thing that we had to create. That allowed somebody else to spread an idea out into the open just through depressive about tiny change to a couple of lines of code piece of software can impact the entire world scale.

We love in an article titled Trump's deep state hitlist my guest. Jonathan Swan writes about how the trump White House and its conservative allies over. The past. Eighteen months assembled detailed lists of government officials who should be ousted because they weren't loyal to trump analysts of trump loyalist to replace them swan says he was briefed on or reviewed. These memos lists most of the details he revealed had not been previously. Published Swan writes that the president's distrust has intensified since his impeachment and acquittal. These lists help explain some of the recent personnel changes in the trump administration swan national political reporter at the news website axios and writes the weekly axios. Sneak Peek newsletter. He covers the trump presidency and Republicans in Congress. He's broken some big stories including that trump was going to pull out of the Paris. Climate deal recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and and Daca Jonathan Swan. Welcome to fresh air. So I want to ask you about your article. This week. Headlined Trump's deep state hitlist what qualifies as a hit list. So president trump. I mean we all see the public desire for him to route house his enemies you know. He's he's tweeted. You need to get the bad people out of government etc. What we uncovered in our reporting was that is actually quite a long paper trail behind this that over the last eighteen months the president has been asking for names of people within his government who are disloyal who quote unquote never trump or anti-trump or quote unquote the bad people. He's told aides that he feels that there are snakes everywhere quote unquote and so what they wear. He means like in the Justice Department Department of Homeland Security Defense Department all of those and also in the White House so he has a network outside the White House Which is comprised of very well connected conservative activists one of them in as Ginny. Thomas who is the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas others include Republican congressional staffers the head of Judicial Watch which is a conservative legal watchdog. Group Tom Fishing and they have a weekly meeting on Wednesdays where they get together to plan how to attack the left and also how to Bruce out the quote unquote deep state with Donald Trump's government. They've been providing memos and lists to the president For the past eighteen months and I reviewed always briefed on several of those memos that have shaped his thinking in recent times. So they're literally are lists like when you write hitless there's literally lists yes that's right there are lists of names and I've seen both people. He should fire and the reasons that he should fire them and then also lists of people he should hire who because they are loyal to the president? Pro Trump And you know we also publish the names of those people including Dan Bongino. Who's a Fox regula former secret service agent you know? They put him up for a senior counterterrorism role. So it's both finalists and high lists and the reason this matters right now. Is the president's been hearing this for a year and a half now but since impeachment since acquittal aids of told me he's crossed the psychological line in the sense that he feels an urgency to get rid of these people he saw a number of State Department officials testify in the impeachment hearings and he felt this intense anger. That here with these people that was supposed to work for him that were betraying him disloyal to him bad people and so what he did was quite extraordinary. He fired the head of presidential personnel office. This office doesn't get a lot of attention in the mainstream media. Most people never heard of it but very important office. It's office that is in charge of picking personnel political appointees across the government. He put in that job. He's twenty nine year old body man. Johnny mcentee who had worked on the trump campaign. He was college quarterback. A football player worked on the trump campaign came into the White House's trump's body man so literally travelling around with him as his personal aide and then he was fired by the former chief of staff John Kelly for some security clearance related issues. Prison trump has brought him back into the White House and put him in charge of this office. And it's really for one reason. He sees Johnny Mackintosh as a pure loyalist and he has given him the brief that he needs to get rid of the bad people. Wait so let's back up a second year. He was fired by General John. Kelly when Kelly was chief of staff at the White House. That's right for security issues. What were those issues? I've been very careful not to say them because I haven't been able to confirm exactly what it was. It was handled in a very strange way and he was sort of even people who were there at the time think that it was actually handled quite badly. He was sort of hold out of the White House and there was some reports that it may have had something to do with gambling. But again we've been very careful because we haven't been able to confirm exactly what it was but trump brought him back in and he had this very interesting meeting last week where he summoned the White House. Liaisons at each of the cabinet agencies to the White House is on Thursday and it was an introductory meeting. It was all very pleasant but he asked them. He said he wanted to know. Who were the anti-trump people at the agencies mcentee The new CARAFE AT OAK ACT? And so just so you understand. He's not talking about people who are career government employees who have worked in the government maybe for twenty s these political appointees that president trump himself appointed or that his cabinet secretaries appointed so the extent of the distrust is so deep that president trump is asking his head of personnel to root out the bad people among his own political appointees. So Johnny Mackintosh The new head of the presidential personnel office. He's twenty nine. He has no personnel experience correct and he has hired as his new assistant. The presidential personnel offices director of Operation A twenty-three-year-old senior George Washington University. Yes politico just reported that story. And he's replacing a woman who has had experienced the decades in personnel. So it's quite striking. So is this a pattern that you're seeing that trump has hitlist food remove and the people? He's replacing them with our loyalists but they don't necessarily have any experience or credentials for the jobs that were being appointed to our. Couldn't say that that's happening everywhere. But is a patent and experience matters fafa less to trump than loyalty. It's not even close so you said that you actually saw some of the list and some of the memo was being given to president trump of who to fire and who to hire. Give us sense of what you've read in the hit list of. Who to get rid of so this extraordinary memo this memo was given to President Trump early lost Chea. I'm told and president trump passes the memo on to his then head of the presidential personnel. Office Sean Ducey. And doocy apparently reads this memo and it's largely an attack on him so just to underscore that the president has funneled this memo to his head of snow. And the memo is basically saying this guy. Ducey is an obstructionist. He's undermining you stuff. It lays out a number of people at the State Department who need to be fired including the deputy Sullivan and various others. David Hale who ended up testifying in the impeachment hearing and then at the end it makes this.

"Actually any good. Love is blind is sort of the perfect blended smoothie of so many other reality shows and this experiment has been conducted before we've seen people date in the dark. We've actually seen true documentaries about how blind date people who actually cannot see We've seen shows where people get married at first sight. So you know it really mix all that together and desa very well. It's interesting how love is blind goes through the whole journey incorporating shows at once it has a show where people meet but dense each other Propose to each other without having seen each other than they actually see each other and that's again they go on their honeymoon right away. I think on a honeymoon. Why not and then they go live together. It's so much and they go home and they to see one another's apartments and houses and oh by the way I'm deeply in debt so I don't even really have anywhere to live. There were two moments in this show where I was like. Oh the candor in this discussion it feels just as candid as like real life. Discussions between partners talking about how to navigate having one black partner in one white partner meeting. The parents got felt so real conversation. That you alluded to earlier where one woman says to her fiance. Just so you know. I'm broke yeah credits crap. And I don't like to work. That felt so real right. It's very rare to see a discussion about money in a reality show. I say bring it on. I WANNA go big picture even further though a thing that I've noticed with love is blind the circle the mass singer It seems like we're in a moment where a lot of these reality shows that are succeeding. Have a premise. In which the big point is what you can't see me at first. What is up with us being really into watching shows about anonymity and performance while I do kind of have a grand universal theory about this if you want to hear it I of course think obfuscation. Masking pretending this is our whole world now and you can play it out in politics. You can play it out. In celebrityhood US certainly played out in social media with influencers. Everybody is presenting a disguise We have people in leadership positions who have very thin resumes who have been promoted beyond their abilities and are sort of wearing a mask Mitt. Romney confessed recently to having like a fake twitter account to troll people. Remember that what I about. The mass singer is that it's a very fun and friendly way to work out. What I think are some real anxieties about who's under there and they go through a lot of craziness on that show with a panel tries to guess it's all sort of celebrities who all kind of know each other and you can recognize each other but neither can the rest of us and there's just something. I think the astonishing quality of that. Reveal that you thought it was celebrity a we were all certain it was. Oh my gosh. It turns out to be celebrity. Be At the same time. I was dealing with watchmen. Which was all about masks? And this is the. Hbo Drama With the starring keen based on the graphic novel right about cops and domestic terrorists. All sort of using masks in different ways. Vigilantism there again. I see masking in a lot of things. What does the success of a show like love is blind and a show like the circle even on a platform like net flicks say about Netflix? And what they want and what they might be giving us more of going forward you know. Tv critics have for a long time. Struggled with what is Netflix. And what does Netflix want to be? And what does Netflix see as its identity Because that's how we dealt with networks for so long we know what an HBO show looks like. We know what an NBC show looks like versus a CBS show and Neth looks just sorta throws all the spaghetti against the wall. A net flicks is trying to replace television and the box office all at once so I was lucky enough to talk briefly with one of the contestants from love is blind earlier this Mark who like we like? Oh poor market. So he's a good soul. Yeah and I'm going to ask you the same question. I asked him after experiencing this show in his case. Living The show. You Angst over do you. In fact think love is blind. Well I definitely believe in the power of attraction and using all your senses using all your saleable senses however it truly is about the person so in that sense love is blind because I know from personal happy experience that we wind up with people that we never would have dreamed of. That's true I will say for me. Love needs to have her eyes checked every year. Thank you Hank Stewart. Oh my pleasure.
