"Back in 1990 30 years ago today. Goodfellas was released in theaters. And I'm sure if you haven't seen Goodfellas, Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, Ray Liotta, several others. It's a spectacular movie brutal movie. It's not when you watch with kids. Many people have seen it 1000 times over, which is kind of the point that I'm getting to It blew me away that it's been 30 years since its release and Certainly, De Niro and Pesci had already had their Ah, They're names and faces cemented into Hollywood when they did that movie, But that really catapulted Ray Liotta to another stratosphere for the Siri's of movies he would do to follow.

All right, Well, I'm going to try to compose myself during the commercial break, but I do have this question to ask. Ah, I'm not even ask Anthony because I'm upset him, But I'll ask him later on in the show, and I'll ask you. In addition, your sports conversation. Ah, 30 years ago Today, Goodfellas was released in theaters and I've seen the movie so many times over and it's as enjoyable today as it was 30 years ago, and I've seen it 1000 times in between. What's a movie that you have seen 1000 times and still enjoy it. Just a cz much every single time you watch it. You guys on hold, Don't go anywhere You're going to be next. And then you, Anthony.

Oscars 2020 Preview
"HI everybody. It's Peter Travers. Here here with this special edition of Popcorn which we're calling the Oscar popcorn because this weekend on February ninth exactly everybody will be watching. Being the Oscar telecast on ABC and probably having their own little ballot. Like I have here trying to figure out who's going to win this damn thing and if the person I don't like winds pushed I put my money on. That's what really happens. That's what people ask me on the street. So I'm GonNa take you through these main categories and and we'll see what will win what should win and we can argue. You can find me somewhere and we can argue about it. But I'm going to start with with best supporting actress. Because that's how the Academy Awards those that's always the first award that we say Kathy Bates in Richard Jewel. Laura dern in marriage in story Scarlett Johansson in Joe Rabbit Florence Pew in Little Women and Margot Robbie in bombshell so look. There's it's a lot of good people here and I have to say right at the outset. That Scarlett Johansson is one of those rare actors that has a nomination as best actress. Chris and best supporting actress marriage story for Best Actress in here supporting which usually gets you to win one and that usually that it's usually that one but it's it's not going to happen you know I'm sitting here saying did I read wrong. What happened to Jennifer Lopez and hustlers? Hasn't she been in this game since the release Lisa Hustler she has and yet the academy you bad people have decided that J.. Lo just wasn't Oscar material while you're wrong but look we we have to deal with rats here and I'm going to say that the person who will win in this category is also the person who should win. And that is Laura Burn and Laura dern in marriage story plays a divorce lawyer and she's a tough one and let's think of all the Hollywood people that are voting for this award and how every single one of them I'll wager. A BET has their own divorce lawyer and has been through this process. Maybe more than once. Maybe two we're three times to do it. And they find Laura Dern Dunn's in this movie something spectacular it's also one of the few awards. I think that marriage story story is going to win. But Laura Dern has never won an Oscar. This will be her first time. Everyone loves her. We all love and big little lies and I think this is her time on so let her have it all right. I'm moving onto best supporting actor. Tom Hanks in a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Anthony Hopkins in the two popes Al Al Pacino in the Irishman Joe Pesci in the Irishman and Brad Pitt in once upon a time in Hollywood. Look you're talking to a big Irishman fan here so if it was me saying come up for the gold it would be Joe. Patchy I know Joe Pesci doesn't do any publicity. He basically sticks fix to himself. He's probably tough guy in real life as the gangster that he plays in the Irishman but that performance is amazing and won won his first Oscar for another score says he movie goodfellas where he was the most scary gangster. You can see here. He's kind of quiet dawn. So if I'm I'm giving them it would be Joe Patchy but the academy is giving this award and no one. No one can win. This except Brad Pitt. These other people here Tom Hanks Anthony Hopkins Al Pacino and Peci all have won Oscars so they already have the gold. Do you realize his full career. Brad Brad Pitt has never won an academy award game over people. This is it Brad. You're going to get in once upon a time in Hollywood playing a stuntman. It man playing somebody who's been around the business. I think it's irresistible for Hollywood to say I'm going to reject one of my own. Plus he was great in the movie. You seem to hear my voice that I have a little bit of a problem. Yeah I do. Because that's not a supporting performance at all that his part is the equal who of his Co Star Leonardo DiCaprio's WHO's nominated for best actor. So why is he in that category. I think they want to win. And Brad you might as well prepare repair your speech right now okay. I am now moving onto best actress. Cynthia Haribo in Harriet Scarlett Johansson in marriage story. Sir Sharon in little women. Charlie's Sharon in bombshell and Renee Zellweger in Judy. What Best S. actress award so far from the Golden Globes to the critics choice awards has it Renee Zellweger one? She's won all of them. So is there any possibility ability here for something else. I mean. Look what Charlie. Stern did in bombshell. She not only plays Megan Kelly. The makeup geniuses have made her look exactly exactly like her and Charlie's has talked exactly like are they love bio pics there so she should be really strong. Social Ronin is like twenty five years old. She's he's on her fourth Oscar nomination. This is incredible and Scarlett Johansson. Like I said nominated for best. Supporting actress and Best Actress. Cynthia revolt is playing Harry Tubman and she also wrote the song from the movie which is nominated. That happened to somebody last year. Didn't it yes it was lady. Eating Gaga Lady Gaga was nominated for writing that wonderful song from stars born and his best actress. But what did you win. She won best song and that was it so I have to say that again. I would give this award person late to search for Ronin just because I think to be that young and to be that consistently brilliant is amazing and her performance in little women. Is that good. But it's Rene as I talk about. How Hollywood would love bio-pics this is? Judy Garland that she's playing judy. This is one of their own. Did they ever give. Judy Garland her own Oscar Competitive Competitive Acting Oscar. Never and I think for that reason not only will renee Zellweger win best actress but she will win for Oscar. Judy Garland on never had. It's their way of saying Judy. We love you. We were so stupid not to give it to you. And we're going to give it to Rene in honor of you. This is how Hollywood works. It's really crazy. But if you're betting on this you have to bet crazy. Aright best actor Antonio Banderas in pain and gory. Leonardo di Caprio in once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver in marriage story what came Phoenix and joker and Jonathan Pryce in the two popes. I look at this category and before I get into. Who Will Win and who should win? I've I've got to say academy what you have against Comedians. And what do you have against Eddie Murphy. That he's not nominated for Dole. Might as my name what you have against Adam Sandler who proved his dramatic chops in uncut gems. Like nobody can believe and yet they have it they only like to give Oscars to actors serious actors who played comic roles. Ause they hate anybody who's making a living as a comic to actually win this war so this year's been going along I've had this feeling that this was Adam drivers to lose that performance in marriage story is one of the best things he's ever done or that I've seen this year and yet there's this other guy and who's that other guy he's Joaquin Phoenix plane joker. Sometimes there's that kind of performance sometimes. There's there's one that just so dominates the screen. That is such an act of immersion of from an actor in a raw. Yeah Joaquin was scary. He was sometimes funny. He was always touching even though he's playing somebody who's totally out of his mind and a lot of this movie his in his mind. What Cain has been nominated several times before and never one Joaquin? This is yours. I can't believe any set of circumstances. Stances if you WANNA bet the whole house on something and somebody to win it's going to be Joaquin Phoenix as best actor for joker game over all right. We're ready now to move on. I'm going to best director now. This is one of the most exciting categories because these people will these particular men and save and because Hollywood as wont of decided that even though there were more women directing movies than ever before four last year. They couldn't find any to nominate which is of course absurd because Greta Gerwig directed little women which is nominated as best picture and they. I thought no I'm just GONNA do five men like we always do what happened. You people sort of learned a couple of years ago when you nominated Greta. GERWIG quick for Ladybird didn't give it to her. But you nominated her. The KADEMI is ninety two years old. Now how many women has given an academy award for directing one. And that's Kathryn Bigelow for hurt locker. Ninety two years one award hang your head in shame name anyway not knocking any of these men that did get nominated. But there's one in there that I would sacrifice for Greta Gerwig but you you try to guess who that is anyway. Here they are. Martin Scorsese the Irishman Todd Phillips. For Joker Sam Mendes for nine thousand nine hundred Seventeen Quentin Tarantino eighteen. O for once upon a time in Hollywood and Bung June hope for parasite every one of these guys you can make a case for. Martin Scorsese Z.. To me is a master the grandmaster who only has one Oscar for directing and then the Irishman is doing some of his best work. Ever Quentin Tarantino. Not No with once upon a time in Hollywood is also a peak form and yet I'm saying this category is going to between two other the directors one of them being the South Korean Vong June Hall for parasite a Foreign Language Film. That seems to have got everybody excited about what's possible and then Sam Mendes for nine hundred seventeen a world war one movie that is constructed to look like it was done in in one continuous. Take how do you resist that. You don't even though I think they would really like to give their best director award worked. Bon John. How it's going to be for Sam Mendes for creating a war movie like no war movie we've ever seen before so sam I think think it's yours but if you're getting out there and you WanNa go to Bung Jun Ho? You know you might do it because there's always a surprise in these contests we can't go. Oh by what the odds are we have to go by sometimes the academy saying I have an instinct for this. I have a feeling this is the right way to go all right last category. Are we ready best picture of the year Ford versus Ferrari the Irishman Joe. Joe Rabbit Joker her little women marriage story nineteen seventeen once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite here is is the one you know every year I do this. It's between one or two movies this year. I can't reduce anything to to the Irishman my estimation a classic one for the ages. Martin Scorsese. Ed Is Best Robert De Niro Pacino. Joe Patchy making a mob movie about old-age age about the end of a mobster. This is the punishment that they get for the lives they live. There's nobody in their lives there alone. It's a tragedy Quentin went and Tarintino. Once upon a time in Hollywood is writing about Hollywood in the sixties and about a time that he thought was the last creative burst of Hollywood Hollywood and doing that. Nineteen seventeen again the World War One movie shot to make it look like. It's one continue steak and parasite a movie about a Korean Rian family in which they exploited the people they work for and then are exploited by the people working for them it is a classic. These are four incredible classics. So what am I gonNA do. What am I going to tell you? What's out there that you have to say? This is the winner and I'm going to go with with all excuses. No excuses in fact to my love for the Irishman. But I think this is the year of Quentin Tarantino. I I think once upon a time in Hollywood being a love letter to Hollywood and being voted on by people who live and work in Hollywood Quentin Tarantino despite right brilliant work with pulp fiction inglorious bastards reservoir dogs Django unchained has never won a Best Picture Oscar or a best director Oscar. Never it's never happened. What better time than now? When he saying Hollywood I love you? I think it's time Hollywood to say to Quentin Tarantino. I love you back back. So you've got it watch the show and afterwards we'll have a discussion.

Awards Season: Oscar Nominations
"We have the golden globes recently today we get the critics choice awards tomorrow very early in the morning they will be announcing the academy award nominations so it's the awards season some times we can glean what will probably happen with the Academy Awards by what happens in the golden globes not always sometimes many times it's wall has been monitoring the critics choice awards and I think we should start there to see if maybe the critics choice awards are either going or falling in line with the golden globes or offering a different message if you will as far as what should be honored this year from first look the critics have got a much more on point and then lie with me then the glow okay let's go down some the category Best Actor yes Joaquin Phoenix for joker given that Best Actress Renee Zellweger for Judy yes best supporting actor Brad Pitt for once upon a time in Hollywood surprises there yep best supporting actress Laura Dern for marriage story he didn't see it heard was okay best young actor romaine Griffin Davis for the judge a rabid movie don't know if there are a lot of kids related films on there but Hey sure give it to him best acting ensemble the Irishman art is a good okay good let's look let's let's slow down and talk about that but what I don't know if they're put it this way is far as acting goes I was very underwhelmed by the Irishman I I really think people are more impressed by the names will histories and legacies of the people involved in the movie as opposed to the actual performances most people were saying that they really like the the understated performance of Joe Pesci yeah it was nice he didn't really cost a lot he didn't beat anyone with a baseball bat but as far as an acting performance I don't think was all that special I don't think Robert de Niro's performance as the Irishman was special it wasn't anything that I said wow that was vintage Robert Dinero it wasn't like there was any particular moment or monologue or passage the people will come away and say we're gonna be quoting that for years we can quote the godfather we can quote good fellas in an area casino what have you there wasn't really anything all that special quotable about the Irishman as far as the ensemble cast it was great to have all these big names together yeah but they had big names together in the Expendables did make it a great movie big names who were to gather it almost seemed like he was with one last ride together for these particular group of actors for this particular genre and I had heard all the hype in I'm a guy who loves the godfather yeah I'm a guy who loves casino and Goodfellas varying degrees but I loved the genre as a whole love the sopranos so that's something I I I know this genre I appreciate the genre when I saw the Irishman it was really weird it was weird what they did to Robert De Niro and his allies making them blue or whatever so he looked like the actual person it was not necessary they could have chosen a different actor if you're gonna do all that was extracting I did like the fact that it's so it's a movie based on real people real incidents in history and it almost quite like the have the story line and as real events happened it breaks away in the show you this person was actually killed by a bullet to the head nineteen seventy one or whatever and I'll show you a still frame of the actual crime scene or something like that that's something I enjoy it but as far as the acting performances there were not we talk about Star Wars hi Scott Walker same thing in the sense of there were no wow moments for me there was nothing which said to me is like wow I've never seen that before no they were getting killed by basically getting whacked like okay we seen people get whacked like this before because they've already told all those stories just changing the name to fictional people another movie so what we see the Irishman which is based on true events and everything not special I didn't think the performances were special that's not a number that are best acting ensemble right okay I would rather Avengers with that because as far as I'm concerned the acting by Robert Downey junior in Avengers in game was stellar okay well I mean look got it and maybe that's why Avengers in game got best action movie finally can best visual effects of got best animated feature is difficult yes yeah best costume design yes Ruthie Carter for dolomite is my name give it to him let's stop right there if you haven't seen dolomite is my name please see it isn't available on Netflix I think you will view Eddie Murphy in a whole different light a whole new light any have best comedy yeah I agree Eddie Murphy has not only reinvented himself but in this particular performance he's just an actor he's not telling jokes like a comedian he is embodying Rudy ray Moore someone completely different and it's telling you the story of how Rudy ray Moore had to reinvent himself from musician to stage performer two eight kind of comedian telling almost wraps stories on stage right right if you know the history and this is a quintessential LA movie in the sense of Rudy ray Moore is inextricably linked to the history of arts and entertainment in Los Angeles yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah you will recognize the landmarks and everything and that is why eighty Murphy deservedly so also got the lifetime achievement award other film awards go to Quentin Tarantino for once upon a time in Hollywood no surprise a Best Director it was a tie Sam Mendes for nineteen seventeen and bomb June hole for parasite can we just go ahead and assume given Hollywood's reaction and also the foreign correspondents reaction to nineteen seventeen that that's probably going to be best picture Best Actor definitely nominated tomorrow for the Oscar nominations yeah we'll probably will win and I say that for this reason for the foreign correspondents association for the golden globes to give nineteen seventeen best drama award what are the ward was and it had not even been released in theaters yet at that point bright I just said to me that it leaves the Hollywood portion critics correspondence whatever they pretty much made up their mind which says to me Hollywood as far as the voting academy members have pretty much made up their mind and they've probably already decided that this is going to be the movie I've heard nothing but superlatives about it I haven't seen it but I'm just reading the tea leaves it is going to get the nomination but I'm saying if I were to place any money nineteen seventy this Best Picture and Best Director just because of all these other indications I'm getting I agree totally agree best sci-fi or horror which is in an Oscar related category not to to my knowledge but us it's good thank I I I I saw the movie everything was great yeah so I'll be in Emma Jordan Peele fan but I did think the movie is great I do appreciate how he tells very different stories that's the story we haven't seen before I can I can watch it and say like wow that's something different is not the typical horror stories come to typical sci fi story has a little twist at the end is what he usually is going to do now is going to be known for that in the way that M. night Shyamalan is known for that I can appreciate what he does I just didn't think the movie was spectacular yeah but I don't know who would love you to hear it I don't know what was up again so when we come back we'll continue with these critics choice awards and also forecast possibly with coming tomorrow morning with the Oscar nominations this the
The Entertainment of 2019: Year in Review
"It interesting year for of the world of entertainment and in terms of the movie screen to get to this explosion of Netflix and all these other different platforms you don't have to go to the big movie theater unless you want the full immersive experience and I always suggest you also get some cookies because as the time of the year but just I think the wives with you enjoy the experience but but I know some of the things the fact you have this posted on your website James person dot com is the ruling over a declining box office because here we have all this if you know the big money is made international especially China will than that with the whole trade the issues going back and forth the editing of certain films so what's going on here is this eventually the demise of the traditional box office expectations in the traditional theaters another been saying that for years with new technology well it it's being yeah it's shrinking kind of traditional movie other than the big franchise brand box office because even though the box office has gone down for the fifth time this decade it's down a record number and the executives and the Hollywood met and many of them I work with they are living in a kind of a denial world I I they know that if these two technological things are you spoke about the fact that you can have a very powerful home theater experience now you know with everybody has a big screen high definition television you're bringing some robots was a I they could pretend like they're part of the crowd you know they can make noise going on cell phones whatever you like yeah but usually because Disney bought Lucasfilm and marble and they have all the biggest intellectual property ownership concept movies they took eighty percent of the top ten so the top ten films of the year eight out of the ten from Disney that's a record Disney also took in ten billion dollars worldwide in their film box office which is also a record but at the same time the box office is down the number of people go to the movies is down and I think it's not just because of the technology I think it's because of the contact and I think what it is is that there's these old concepts things like story characters people long for in his words of Martin Scorsese got highly criticized for speaking out against Marvel superhero movies but there there are more of like a thrill ride in many cases than they are white the kind of story telling that Hollywood became famous for and so because of that you know like the number one movie by actually number one movie of the year and of all time is the ventures and gag which is always the classic not that it's it's a bad movie I mean it's an entertaining movie buddy it's it's all action special effects sci fi superhero fantasy type thing and the others get in the top ten there's captain Marvel there's spider man far from home with the Star Wars the latest Star Wars wars installment the risers creek sky worker these are all from the same bill during it yet all marble or Lucasfilm in there these kinds of movies many of course you have sequels like Toy Story four and frozen was it the golden read books and we're gonna get more and more is that all is well yeah but some of that you get to the new generations and its radio Disney used to do as a by the way for the tuning in talking James person Jim person dot com is my second house over a pop culture among other things but you know Disney had a formula for years back to real DHS and everything else stay AT and into the theaters before that alone every seven years or so they would release like Snow White or something and then they'd go back into the vault and the they keep capturing new generations was masterful now one of the big deals this year's Disney plus the debt is just phenomenal with with what's there you don't really need a lot of other things but it's it's it's all available now so that's another example of how quickly the staff changes your inner exactly what you're talking about by the way for new generations of a new iteration was the remake it with live action The Lion King which was the number two movie any captured a whole new generation of of movie that had captured a previous generation so yeah Disney has the intellectual property so that when they launch their streaming service Disney plus they did something that a lot of people in Hollywood one really freaked out about and then they had a a movie starring Anna Kendrick cold no well it was never released in any it went direct to streaming we haven't even heard that concept direct just dreaming twenty one Disney does it then the people in the industry say oh my gosh this is a trend in the Irish men bad movie that's generating all the on her because of her the foreman should Martin Scorsese unfortunately it has that crazy man Robert De Niro at that but he's consistent and you got a treatment because his movie the molar report on ice the musical didn't do well this year so what is so loved that concept I really do I really do and I I would have given them the Laurie yeah I would go see that if Robert Muller was ice skating I would go see it for sure but but this one it went there was a lady and the tramp remake Disney which and that way director strict streaming I was mentioning the Irishman and there's another movie called marriage is story these are both Oscar bait movies after only one month they went streaming so there could be a new trend in that's good that caters to people that create their own entertainment peered at home and but the only thing is I mean I anecdotally I mean I have friends an average six myself I remember you know we were when we just had cable and all of a sudden we had out hundreds of cable channels and sitting there and I couldn't find anything to watch on cable channel and now people experience that they say oh I'm going through the cable channels I'm going through Netflix I don't see anything I want to watch so I'm gonna watch it's a wonderful life for the eighteen hi so that means there's a vacuum out there for I guess what we would call traditional entertainment and maybe family friendly which is by the way in the end that's where Hollywood makes most of its money because all the top ten films are pretty much the you know there there's no all over you friendly films at the most there's a P. G. thirteen type superhero films that have some action scenes chill Hollywood makes its money with family friendly films and then they attack families with the awards speaking of

Well I'm very lucky to be able to have worked with someone like Mardi and done so. How many projects with very lucky? He's great with everybody though any any creative department he he is easy with two. It's not just our relationship ship any actor you know Al Pacino was saying that if I like working with heavy had a net all the time under him so that meant he could do it every once.

I got doc I got to work with my friend. And so so you know everybody talks about net flicks now because it's another way of watching films. But do you think it's going to change. How people relate to films if they're relating on a screen this big supposed to the big big screen? Well yes better to watch it on a big screen in a theater. I mean there are other ways is like watching with their family. We have bigger screens these days. So it's not quite the same as when I was a kid a little screen. This was. Yeah so it's it's different people and I even I was somebody sent me an article about a woman who was had kids had no time to watch the film and had to watch it intermittently on the IPHONE. Now she said I enjoyed it a lot. I'm sorry to look at it that way. Don't be mad at me monster. The they'd made you look so much younger with this. New Technology was a man.

"Be right back up. This is the season for the hallmark channel to show ten thousand Christmas movies but a lot of outrage view is threatened to boycott after the channel pulled ads from a wedding. Planning Company called Zola that feature to same sex marriage now. The channel says they're willing to rear the commercials. Zola Rep said. They're in talks with them about this. I mean good for them. Yeah it's it is good you no no you can you can disagree with same sex marriage if you want to. That's all right but you can't. It's is the same as if you said well. You shouldn't show that interracial couple or you shouldn't show those people those people people marry who they marry. You can get them to go to the bathroom. If you don't like like the commercial is not that long ago that they didn't show interracial you tell you tell Ya. Yeah that was a that was everywhere. I grew up very mormon and one of the one of the reasons why I left. The church was because when I married a guy that's not Mormon but to do. They continue to struggle to evolve on this issue. And I have always made the argument that if you are forced strong family values to be supportive of gay marriage because that means you let that someone Mary who they love and that makes much better family unit. I don't think we should be ashamed. Should celebrate that in this country. You can marry who you love kids across this country wake up and see two MOMS kissing kissing and two DADS kissing a loving. That is something that we should all celebrate when they talk to my grandson and I said you know nowadays you know two men can get married in two ladies can get married. He said I know he's eight years old. When I was eight years old I would have been what yeah? How does that work? I Know Charlie dealt with this religion. If the same problem that I've always had a catholic church it's My my grandmother's his best friend was a transgender woman. And I just grew up knowing that. Sylvia was my grandmother's best friend. And it just it never ever occurred to me that that was perceived as being wrong. And it's just amazing. I had lakes and Mormon and then my family so this is just an issue for me that I I really struggled with with the rank you WanNa struggle with with the Catholic Church and I actually was happy that hallmark came back the CEO. Mike Perry and came back and said No. We're going to put those ads back on television as they should. But I don't understand how one group this one million mom uh-huh was so I don't know str- important and had so much power that they were able to get this network to pull the. It's like what happens. What happens is Megan will say something? or I'll say something you'll say something and five hundred million people suddenly suddenly are calling that we we'd be fired. Yeah so it is. It's what happens. This is the thing that people WanNa do now. But you know we're human beings and you go through stuff you do your thing and people marry who they love and I'm sorry you know there have been so many huge fights now in in the law really really about who can adopt children. You know people who love children want to adopt them and you can't stop people because you don't like they're they're alive and I don't understand why we're still having these battles but maybe there to reiterate how we feel as Americans about each other and all. This was a good battle to the HAB. He community has power also jess. Why back this is we have? Oh sorry we know hallmark our card's CEO. Mike Perry said in a statement. The crown media team has been agonizing over this decision as we've seen the hurt it has unintentionally caused said simply they believe. This was the wrong decision. Good so good for them. I'm wondering though why was that hurt unintentional. Didn't they understand that that would be a I. Don't very listen. I don't think so. People make decisions not realizing that there are repercussions they. They make a decision and they don't think about about the real people that have to deal with what's common.

Why Clinton perjured himself is because he was willing to go under oath? Trump will not go under oath. He refuses uses to testify as well as Mulvaney. Bolton Giuliani all these people who are afraid to go under oath particularly Donald if he goes under as I've said before the line why machine will explode and leaner tighter though he said Joe Biden is not the crucial person here. He's not the one who's being Investigated David Hillock. You're asked if you're subpoenaed you say I'm going to do the law says I need to do. I'm going to show up Manto separates. It would not hurt at the arts. Not your main a to what is going on in the Senate right now and I also think you know if we're going to talk about both sides and we're going to sort of make that comparison I think we also have to Compare the the Senate vote before you had so many so many senators that voted to not only impeach but also convict President and Clinton for Yes. perjuring himself those same many of those same people are still in the Senate. I cannot believe that they would vote to impeach and convict Vic US president sitting president for perjuring himself and they would not vote to convict a president and remove Hooghly and remove a president who cooler cooler nearly us four wanted to use a foreign government for his own personal benefit to impede our very democracy. Accuracy that is this Republican.

"The full House of Representatives. The scheduled cast their votes on impeachment and if they vote to proceed a Senate trial that was set to start in early twenty twenty but some Republicans say. You don't have to wait that long to see where this is going to take a look everything I do ooh during this I'm coordinating with White House. Counsel I am trying to give a pretty clear signal. I made up my mind in a year. That's a violation of the oath that they're about to take and it's a complete subversion of the constitutional scheme. So you did okay. Did we just see mentioned. Lindsey admit that they're prepared to violate the constitutional duty. Eh isn't isn't it. Aren't you supposed to get on a jury hear everything out and then make a decision. Don't they tell you don't come in with predetermined Armand ideas for the basically saying the party hack and I don't give a fig about the constitution. Basically that's what they're saying then. People are going to get smart and hip to that pretty soon zone because everybody everybody's been on a jury. Yes that's you're you're not supposed to decide the fate of the defendant until you hear here all the facts that how is that different than Rashida to leave on election night saying impeach me it's partisanship on both sides before the trial has even begun is said that she. I should've said that. But I think the idea pearl clutching that. It's only Republicans that are doing this. This completely partisan process. I think the American public is completely sick of it and I also take a great offense at the idea that there's not integrity and seriousness given the gravity of the accusations and I think most people have tuned out because both sides are making his political as they are. I I gotTa tell you when I when I heard that I did go back to my days in front of Juries. You know because you do want to take you want a juror. That's going to take it very seriously sleep and I actually looked up the oath that they take when they are about to begin this this impeachment and they have to say I solemnly swear or affirm firm that in all things pertaining to the trial of the impeachment of blank now pending I will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws. So help me me God. So it's very similar to the that you take when when you are a juror and just the hubris to get on television and say. I've already made up. My mind is pretty shocking. Given the fact that Lindsey Graham and I know we're going to going to play something completely different before. Yes that's what I was getting too but you. You mentioned something that I want to say when when people are sitting in judgment of something different if you say impeach you know the people yell stuff say stuff but when you sitting there and it's your job to decide whether this person should be impeach you shouldn't I think she's not on there. She's not on their on their jury. No she's not. I don't see a difference between those issue. Political animals saying basically the same thing and I implore everyone to stop being as partisan on both sides. Unfortunately I think where you where you use most people where the Republicans have lost me where you don't even acknowledge that something bad happened right. So here's where I am. I think that there are other people here as well. I find what he did report. I find that what the president does sometimes daily basis abhorrent. I still think we need more on grounds for impeachment more than abuse of power. I think you need to prove that something illegal was done because I worry about the next person coming into this Joe Biden start impeaching him off of Barista because they find some abuse of power. I have I'm sorry I found my whole weekend was consumed by trump. I didn't talk to one person that had been this way or that way about watching. TV You know just just like going to the supermarket. That comes up and I realized that the holiday season what I have a pit my stomach with every day about this president is he represents the opposite of what we're taught to be as human beings you lie you get away with it you cheat you get away with it you bully people you get away with it struck people on the American people I think at this point the American people look in the mirror and okay what do we want representing US unified and that is one of the things that is hard and it goes to the hypocrisy when they went after Clinton they went after him because they felt he'd lied hurt. Yes yes that's a lie. Yeah so let me make me make point all right I just I I now. I know everybody's got an answer. Let me make the point that you can answer me. But you know I I listened to Lindsey Graham and you know. He said he's going to do everything he can to make. This trial died quickly. It's the exact sentiment. He argued against during Clinton's impeachment. We must take every opportunity to go through this and you know. The constitution is not flexible. The constitution says has. Here's what you hear here. The guidelines we can operate under in order to keep the democracy whether he's guilty or not should be in the hands of the people who are with him and can say did you do this happened and take its trial. Stop saying I'M NOT GONNA look at the evidence. You just can't do that. That's not the American way you're saying there's no just say and it's not even hypocrisy is the thing that is scared everyone. which is this? Divide that you talk about all the time. I know me that you talked about all the till I most of my time around conservatives. I don't to spend my time around like like my time. And I know that there are group of people in this country that think this is completely partisan on the left as well. And I'm not saying what Lindsey Graham said was okay because I disagree with it but the idea that like oh we're gonNA pollyanna moment in our innocence is lost now go back to again a president who perjured himself within my lifetime and having an impeachment process and you can just telling you why conservative but I'm just telling you conservatives right now if I were a Democrat I would be out there on the frontlines every way possible trying to change their mind because all I hear right now is the Democrats have gotten out over their skis and they wanna move on and by the way. Trump wants a long impeachment process. Because it's good for for him. It's helping his numbers and Mitch Mitch. McConnell does not laughing at you. They're laughing at the fact that we have to go so bad that he's he like he has.

Humble beginnings is the daughter of haitian-born parents and our professional rise from local local politics to the Obama White House and back with me to discuss her new book is courageous. Appear Book Launch Book Book Lunch. Go back to me I can show you. This is the book. The picture pulled my super q the picture. I took green congratulations on the book. I know you've been running running running running things we're gonNA promote what you're going to do tonight for the book. But before I jump into the book I do have to ask. I must ask you a couple of political questions because you're also our political guru. Let's let's start with. We just spoke with the MOMS demand. Action Leader Shannon about what they did in Virginia. But can we talk a little bit about Kentucky. I WanNa Talk Kentucky committed. Not Just because I am a Kentucky Colonel which I am and that is true Matt Bevin actually signed my Kentucky Colonel Proclamation but Kentucky's always have one too. Are you correct. Yes yes heard. Only forgotten about that. We're girdles yes. Yeah Yeah Yeah Kentucky colonels just chopping it up talking about politics. Do you think as I do that. The message sent to Democrats large was number one cares popular defending it copier. Because obviously obviously Andy Bashir's father is the one who created the connect version of obamacare. Trying to take it away is what Matt Bevin got taken away because of but also candidates matter because anybody was actually a really great candidate with a really great surname Gregory. You're exactly right. He was a great candidate with a great message and Bevan also was incredibly unpopular. Like you were alluding to what he was trying to do with obamacare in the state and he also did something else joy he he. He basically became Trumpian he. He turned that race. This Bevan the Republican in the race into a nationalized it. He even had a adds up about impeachment. Teach meant he made it incredibly Trumpian in and put trumpism on the ballot and so I do think it was also a referendum on Donald Donald trump who went into the state a state that Donald Trump won by thirty points in two thousand sixteen and it should send a loud message not only for twenty me twenty for republicans but also for impeachment. I mean I think that this plays into power. Howard Republican in the Senate and someone like Mitch McConnell? Oh who is from Kentucky the Senator From Kentucky how how are they really going to start thinking about once once. The House passes impeachment. We're pretty much sure that's going to happen. And it lands in the Senate side. So that's part of the conversation to that came out for me in Kentucky. Yeah and I. I've been wanting to ask you this if this is why I need to be at work because that'll like I'll just text the questions anyway but I was GonNa ask you anyway Comma Harris. We're going to have combo hair is on tomorrow. I'm really excited to talk to her. She to me has had two of the best political weeks in her campaign. Eight other than her launch. What do you think the challenge is in terms of her not being able to rise quicker in the polls or get more overt support particularly from black women? And you know it's something that we all talk about in in our in our little world all the time like what is happening and I think it's a bunch of things like the the beginning for sure there was the the name. Id you had Biden and Bernie who had big huge name. ID's Biden for being the number two to Clearly Obama and he being known for some time Bernie ran in two thousand sixteen is basically been in the national sphere for the last four years. And when you have that it's hard hard to break in and I think too. We are in a different time. Where when we're when you look at the polling and you see that people really want to beat Donald Trump I think thank you have voters are there who are who are practical and they are thinking? This is the way we want to be. We don't want to take a chance. We don't want to be historic. I think that's part of it. Yeah and so. They are looking at vitamin and thinking. This is how we beat Donald Trump. I think that's part of it and there's a long other long list of other things that I can go into anything. That's kind the top of the thinking for many voters. Let's go into your book. I WanNa read this a little a little bit of it and this is on President Obama because a lot of people know you as I say the woman behind the President Obama's election and this is the news then the news hit us listening to president elect Obama's acceptance speech delivered almost exactly midnight. It was a total out of body experience for me. I'd never felt such a deep sense of accomplishment on a personal level or sense of hope or unabashed joy for the country. That's part of your book. Can you you describe not just your reaction to this. First Black President being elected and being a part of that. But how did your parents react. How did they react a first meeting and being in the White House give us? That's yeah that's a good question because I actually talk about that in the book so my parents is. I mentioned are from from Haiti and they grew up in a dictatorship. So when I when I this told them that I was gonna go into politics. They were horrified. They were they were like. We don't understand why you're doing that. Why not become a doctor like we want you to become a doctor and so they were? They didn't understand what that looked like. And what that would mean and also I was. I was when I worked on the on the national presidential campaign. I was flying all over the country sleeping on people's couches living here for a weekly and there for six months. Whatever it was and it wasn't until bomber went one and I told them? Hey I'm going to go into into the White House I'm GonNa go work for the first black president that's when they were like. Oh this is wonderful and they were really proud incredibly happy that that's what I was going to do. You and I have this picture of when my mom. I met President Obama and it's kind of funny because she's so in love with Barack Obama that she is in the picture she's standing there with Michelle Obama and Barack Obama and she is all over walk on the other side because she's like this is my guy and it was really funny. I was a little embarrassed I but it was It was really fun they are. They were incredibly proud Understand immigrant family. They came for the the you know the elusive American dream. They still live check to check and for their daughter to have ended up in the White House and a lot of these. A lot of people have these types of immigrant story for their their child to have succeeded in the way that that we do in the way that I did was there just so incredibly proud so even though they may they may not have the million dollars or the the big house I am the American Dream I actually fulfilled what it is that they had won it for me when they came to this country and you tell that story beautifully in moving four.

Actor Robert De Niro: Trump must be 'held accountable' with impeachment inquiry
"Do. Now Is Academy Award winning actor Director and producer. Robert Deniro. I am trying not to speak out. It is so exciting to see you. Thank thank you for being here. I want to talk about the movie in a moment but I have to first start off by asking you because of all of the events that are happening. There's going to be live televised hearings for impeachment next week. You've been very tough on Donald Trump. What do you think? What do you think that impeachment could actually accomplish? Do you think that the American people at this point having lived through three years almost at this guy are actually soup. Still surprise. -able well I just think that he if we don't go through impeachment inquiry. We're letting him get away with something he can't get away he's just you just got to move forward and take chances tactically or strategically. Might it feels you know what happens. It'll give him more ammunition later but he has done something wrong he has to pay. Hey for that. He has to be put on notice pay for it. Even if the Republicans will not finally go through with impeaching him everybody else has gone on through the symbolic motions of he has to be held accountable period. And you want to talk about the two films that you're in and just sort of make a kind of a connection here you you know. Obviously you play the guy who the moment with the man who's becoming the joker the kind of pivotal moment where he fully embraces that sort of negative identity entity is with your character but he also is Egged on by other people to do the chaotic things that he's doing where people who are angry and feel disaffected and so they pushed him to keep doing more bad things. And then your new movie. In the Irishman this idea of donald trump sort of having a gangsterism around him of of behaving like a gangster or maybe behaving at the behest of gangsters like the leader of Russia. Those things do seem to tie to him right because it is. It's is curious to me why people follow him. I'm I am completely. I have no idea why they follow him. Because he's not even a good gangster he's he can't even keep his word about anything he's I think in the real gangster world he wouldn't last long he lashed long in his own little real real estate world where he's the boss because he's the boss and he heard it all that money and he's he's a fool but in the real world he who wouldn't last long that's my feeling. Yeah it's interesting because people seem to be afraid of him but it isn't clear to me why when you ask. Why are people afraid? They're like because he'll tweet at me. Yeah he what bothers me more. What concerns me more is that someone will come along this a lot? Worse Don trump. He's just a to He's done but when you get somebody who comes along who smart. Who knows how to work it and is more material and can be sympathetic? When they need to be sympathetic he has none of that? He has not one speck of sympathy empathy for anything or anybody. So he's just stupid to she doesn't know and in a way we're lucky in a certain way we're lucky because because we can see it so clearly but as I say I'm worried generation two-three from now this is going to happen again and he will be a bit of a teacher feature of what he did wrong. This other person will feel that they can do it this way. That's what really bothers me more. I want to ask you the question. I asked everyone that I interviewed for the first book that I just did and I asked everyone. What do you think the country looks like after trump? We have a lot of making up to do reparations to to do with countries because if we don't have a president who really can show that we're we're growing up and repairing sincerely the damage. That has been done personally. I think someone like Buddha judge would be a capable of doing that young but he's got all the qualifications even even Bloomberg I think he's a grownup he's run this city for three three terms. He's grown up and he knows so he's an executive he's he hasn't done everything perfectly but he's very very good. He'll get us out of this mess because we are in one because we owe it to the rest of the world to do the right thing and we're not going to do unless we can show them that we've we've got leadership not only in the next four years after twenty twenty but after four years after that and after that yeah as a fellow New Yorker I reached out to you for your support Mayor Bloomberg. No he has a little bit. We sort of touched on an he hasn't asked asked me for. We just talk because I wanted him at one point two two run I thought he should. I was disappointed that he finally didn't but I think he sees right now that he ask the jump in because he has to jump in. Are you concerned that the idea yet. Another billionaire coming in. And saying you'll say I mean that was trump's theme trump's not a billionaire he's a fake president he calls everything else fake because he knows he's fake it projects is a classic. I don't know what you call it. Everything that he says is that negative about other things. Other people is what he's saying about himself so he he's he's a loser he he is a genuine loser hand and get somebody who's real like Bloomberg who's worth I think over fifty billion or maybe a lot more and this guy he says he's worth three something billion billion. We don't even know if he's just a total huckster hustler. Yeah and he and I think one of the things that angers him probably the most people like you people from Hollywood which he craves to be a part of your world he craves to be a part of the world of the of the females of the of the people that are actors or athletes if he wants to be a part of your world and the rejection Shen from people like you I think is one of the thing that bugs in the most. How could you not want? I mean when I was in New York before before he was doing all we want to have anything to do with him. I mean I heard he's around. He wants to take a picture do nothing to do with him. He's a fool. Everybody knew that but I mean now he he'd call up the tabloids leads and say he's the agent he called Forbes magazine. That's crazy yeah and not bought it. Yeah absolutely last night before I go to the movie. What do you make Guiliani at at the I mean I you lost his mind I think he's he's what a shame because he had something going and he just prostituted himself to work with trump? Guys of how could he do that. I I have no understanding of. How could he was a guy who used to prosecute people the Rico Act this show on and now? He's part of a criminal family is. He's the Tom Hagen. It's an amazing turn for him. Let me talk about this movie. So the Irishman was just reading a little bit about it. One of the things that I think is fascinating and I did not realize you don't process it in your mind because you've been in so many incredible movies will be so many award winning winning winning films and you've been so hard for them you Deniro de Niro Pacino. Scorsese yourself Al Pacino and Scorsese had not work together in this way before. No we when we started doing this project Monday night talked about Al playing Hoffa and it was built. It'd be a great idea. So that's how that came about and Joe Patchy and so on is the Buffalo Lena character even Joe Patchy coming back because he hasn't been in a lot of films lately lately. That's pretty exciting. It was well it was the ideal situation that I felt. We felt if we could get it. Me Joe Al Mardi Directing and people people have been obsessing over this is on aging or aging. That people are talking about where they took you back in time. I guess you'd call aging Mardi sort of I think he made up the phrase youth of available considerable public. That's pretty cool and tell us a little bit about this story. Well it's about A. I mean what what happened. Just a little backstory. We had been working on another project for many years. He wanted to get something going. Finally we came up with something about an aging retired Hitman from the west coast so Mari was showing me Old Films Jan film in Black and white as looking for the style all that he wanted to do it in and I said well. I've got to read this book that I spoke with Eric Roth a few years about one I came out called. I heard Japan houses. And it's about a hitman and so on and maybe it'll be good for research and when I read it. I said Marty we got together. I said you gotta read this because I think this is probably more like what we would want to I do. Yeah I mean the idea that you know this the lives of these characters even touch on the Kennedy assassination and providing the guns that were used to kill Kennedy. I mean this is sort of expands beyond on just the sort of unique story that you're telling yeah had a lot of is have these characters like Hoffa even Joe Gallo and the Kennedy certain size historical size to it but a very not a small but a personal story about a guy who's loyal to both people. Oh who very powerful and the dilemma. That is in actually but to me said in a very real way I can just stop by the way. He wrote the book that the dialogue at all all the scenes and everything been some people said well. You know that's not really true. That's not how it happened. But as Mardi says it's it's a story that we tell title in our way and it's not it might not be accurate though. I personally think that there's a good chance it would be accurate and if we find out later that it was somebody else happened another way. That's great do another film that back possibly but it's okay. I'd like to find out what really happened. This isn't the way it did happen. Well I can wait to see it. It's at the Balasko here. In New York. The BALASKO was a theater theater. So this is a first for the Balasko gets over one hundred years old and it. It plays eight times a week. The way of play would play. It's called show. It's not anymore but it's another movie theaters around the city around the country. Then it'll be on a Netflix. Want Robert Deniro. It's so cool talking to you. Thank you so much for being here in the new film. The Irish is playing in select theaters as we just mentioned right. Now we'll be on Netflix. In on November twenty seven th and also go see joker it's so good as well

"I mean. That is pretty clear right right but there are ways it can get muddled if Democrats. Just start throwing witnesses out and people are getting confused. It is joy and this is a really important strategic point of keeping it simple as dean in my have talked about messaging is so important when I first started as a federal prosecutor I went to a training program at the Department of Justice that they have all all new prosecutors. Go Two and one of the things that I was taught is that because of all of the resources in the grand jury process. The government doesn't often lose cases because the evidence is strong strong. The government loses cases because the jury didn't understand and that's because cases can be very complex and complicated but the end of the day. They taught us really simplify. Start Your opening statement with this word with the sentence. This case is about blank personal gain extortion shoes. A simple word heard a simple theme for people to understand because if it gets very complicated than the party that has the burden of proof is going to lose because at the jury isn't satisfied that it's been met then then that means they can't return either a guilty verdict or in this case an impeachment articles so keeping messing simple. It is a simple scheme explaining it. In simple terms is essential to success. Yeah Joyce Right so Democrats have this challenge of trying to make this really. It's not a complicated store. It has a lot of characters I mean. A lot of people witnessed this. Donald trump literally committed the offence with a bunch of people on the phone. Not The smartest way to commit an offense but that's would and so the Democrats have that in favor right. They've got everything corroborates everything else. Everything kind of builds on everything else. But then you've got on the other side of the Republicans are saying that they're counter-strategy is going to be to try to call Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden and somehow get him to testify and and call the whistle blower who was not on the call. The one person they WANNA call that has a relation to this wasn't on the call just was told by people who were on the call. This bad they want to call that person. What do you make of that? counter-strategy the Republican strategy. Here is what you do. When when you really can't confront the substance of the evidence against you so they'll try to make it muddy they'll try to make it difficult to see the fat and as rob points? Tout trump is a showman. He knows how to play these situations hill distract. He'll come up with clever buzzwords the challenge that the Democrats face will be do exactly actly. What Maya and barb have already talked about to focus on the fact that trump was not conducting foreign policy was not trying to cure corruption in Ukraine? But but instead was out for his own personal gain for help with the man that he perceived as being the strongest opponent he would face in twenty twenty and his barbed says to to tell that simply because so many people in the country are at the point where they've tuned out. They feel like the president does terrible things but he's never held accountable and they're sort of it. They're breaking point. Democrats have to bring those people back in. They'll have the opportunity to do that. By putting up their strongest witnesses this week. Starting with embassador faster Taylor who makes the bribery and extortion absolutely clear. And then I suspect closing with colonel vend men who will tell the American people that based based on his years of service the president engaged in an abuse of all of our trust and put his own personal gain ahead of the country's national security and rob the the part about the Biden's is what pops the most I think for most people but I've come to you because the committee investigating Russian when you guys are focused on is Russia. This is also so about clearing Russia. I'm rereading the second half of the Muller Report and you will. The for the first half is on. That really is damning. On this point. This was also also about trying to get Russia a clean bill of health because that is weird. Donald trump seems obsessed with doing that. Yeah Well Speaker Pelosi said it perfectly. All roads lead to Russia because everything. That's being a looked at here. Has An antecedent back to two thousand sixteen and the election action there and it's all designed to benefit Putin. Everything here is designed to benefit Putin. But I want to say one thing I mean. We're talking about presenting the case and all that and we all know it's not a you know it's not a trial criminal trial it's a it's a political trial and so in order for this to be successful you've got to sway way the audience. which is the American public? And I would suggest and again I go back to the fact that everybody knows that trump including luding all republicans they know trump has engaged in bribery and extortion. We all know that he himself said it. It's now up to high look like like three or four people and it's McConnell is is on the fringe of that but it's Hannity is Laura. Ingram is Tucker Carlson. And maybe Kellyanne and Conway there has to be the surprise person coming forward when we heard John Dean or Butterfield during Watergate. Those were like Whoa. Hello we need that moment again to happen in order to swing those people who are supporting trump. So I don't know how that happens but I think we've got to find one person to come forward. That is not you know that we all know to say yes. This happened because we all know what happened. And even those people low it happened. Yeah maybe maybe it'll be John Bolton maybe it'd be anonymous or whoever anonymous is somebody somebody needs to come forward. Took to break the logjam here because we are in the most lawless presidency in the history of America. Yeah Bulletins Attorney has said that Bowl has information mation that hasn't been discussed in either testimony been looked at by the congress. He's the extent that another shoes going to drop here. It's really gotta show on my show. One quick thing Jordan look two thousand seventeen to eighteen weeks three hundred million dollars to the Ukraine. Why wasn't trump concern about corruption in two thousand seventeen eighty because Joe Biden is not running till two thousand nine hundred? And that's why I absolutely well an anonymous still out that we don't know who that is so we I have my own guess. I won't share those with the right now. Dean Timothy O'Brien Mayawati Barbara. mcquade Rob Reiner Joyce fans end rob looking very heather shaved the beard. Doing up part a MAC thing you look you look fantastic and you.

"I began by telling the president that there was a cancer growing on the presidency and if the cancer was not removed the president himself would be killed by the August six? PD be be warned against possible attacks in this country and I ask you whether you recall the title of that PD. I believe the title was Bin Laden Determined to attack inside the United States. Welcome back to enjoy public. Televised hearings have a way of gripping the nation but it will be impossible to remember every single word of what can amount to hundreds of hours of broadcast rather it is the moments the famous few words that continue to capture and punctuate some of the most dramatic moments in American history. Well it's time to bus popcorn because once again a public hearing is set to become must see TV as house. Democrats go public with their impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump next week and among the first to testify as someone who's been in the news a lot these days ambassador. Bill Taylor the top diplomat in Ukraine like many of the actors and the trump Ukraine scandal. Ambassador Taylor was largely unknown until recently when when leaked text messages between Taylor and a motley crew of trump associates revealed trump's attempt to leverage military aid and the promise of a White House meeting to pressure Ukraine to investigate a political rival Aka. Extortion Taylor who was the only one to push back on the plant texting Gordon Sunlen. The hotelier turned ambassador to the European Union quote. I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with political campaign. Taylor is now in a position to offer the most damning case against trump as indicated by the transcript released this week of his closed door testimony to house impeachment. Investigators the transcript that foreshadows the explosive account. We can expect to hear from the career diplomat on Wednesday in his testimony. Taylor confirms the attempted dirt for a shakedown testifying that trump directed officials to tie military aid to demand that Ukraine open an investigation into the Barista energy company. The Ukrainian Gas Company whose board of directors. Joe Biden's son joined in two thousand fourteen. The transcript Taylor told Congress quote that was my clear understanding security assistance. Money would not come. The president of Ukraine committed to pursue the investigation during questioning by house. Intelligence Committee Chair. Adam Schiff Taylor was asked if he was quote aware that quid pro quo literally means this for that. Ambassador Taylor responded I am in four days. The American public may finally here in real time time and on national television. That type of testimony that we've only seen in print and if history is any indication what we see and hear is going to change the course of American history once again joining me now is Timothy. O'Brien editor at Bloomberg opinion and author of trump nation. Maya Wiley of the new school dean over dollar host of the Overall a show on Sirius. Xm Barbara mcquade a former US attorney. Rob Reiner filmmaker activist and Co founder of the Committee to investigate Russia enjoys Vance Lance a former. US Attorney a super duper panel rob. I'm going to go to you on this. I because the reason that we started with that series of clips at the top is you know. People don't know who Bill Taylor is right but people also didn't know John Dean was when the Watergate hearings started so you start out with these unknown characters characters and there'll be something that they say that then sort of captures the entire thing. Give Democrats a little advice here on how to bring about those moments elements because what we've seen has been spent right sometimes. It's been strong and sometimes it's not been strong. How can they make this simple straightforward and easy to understand but also bring it home so people understand what they're dealing with? Well I think a lot of that is GONNA is GonNa rest on the the the questioners. I mean we're going to have a career professional prosecutors who are GonNa do the questioning and the way they point. Their questions will narrow the responses to get the kind of responses. They want so that you'll get those kind of sound bites and make it clear for the audience but I think that you know like you said nobody new John Dean before he testified. Nobody knows a Taylor or Admin or any of the people that are going to testify. But there's something different here than then happened in the past and here we have had. The president himself admitted to committing the crimes on national television. And that at this point has not moved the needle so I think we gotta be very careful about thinking that this public testimony money is going to break the door down because we at the time of Watergate. We didn't have a state run television Fox Fox Sinclair and so on. They're projecting completely different and in order to get those twenty senators or whomever to move. They need to feel their constituents and the only way they'll feel them is if they start to change in the information they're getting is is the wrong wrong information. Every one of the Republicans knows that the president has engaged in bribery and extortion. They all know it. The the only difference is their constituents are being fed a different narrative. And Somehow we got a breakthrough that and then all of this testimony Moni which we know to be true and we've seen it will land and have impact. Yeah let me go. Let me go to this because you talk to a lot of Fox News washers On your show and I mean but it seems to me that with something as grave as impeachment hearings even Fox has to carry them right. They're going to carry them this. This could be must see TV and once we netflix crime series about the trump family. This week will be a big week in that whole thing. Here's the thing about what can Democrats do it's all about framing. Don't call a quid pro quo call it. Extortion don't debate. Is that transcript or summary of the July twenty fifth phone call called a confession. It's trump's confession freely involuntary involuntary given. He admitted he wants reciprocity. He talked about aid. Can you do me a favor though and investigate the Biden's and even suggested using bill bar and apparatus the government to get that so you've extortion. You having the knitting it. I think one of the things that's not talked about this is about life and death. You had a hot war going on. La Times as quantified if I twenty five Ukrainians died in battle from July from when withheld the till October. Well I can't sit here and say. Donald trump withholding eight and July. 'cause one person so die another. Donald trump new withholding aid could risk the lives of Ukrainians but to help us twenty twenty campaign. He did not care because Donald Trump is is cruelly selfish and it's just about so Republicans respond to extortion questions frame it as extortion answer questions about the confession and the fact that Donald Trump would put people's lives at jeopardy and our security United States are not securities. Colonel Vitamin said. This is our security at risk for his reelection campaign. Let them defend that. We'll see timmy. Hey absolutely donald. Trump didn't seem to care what happened. You can't. He seems to have a hostility to Ukraine based on his loopy conspiracy theories that somehow Ukraine Ukraine was spiring to help Hillary Clinton lose. I'm not sure what it is. He thought they were doing so. He doesn't have a lot of empathy for Ukraine. But how do you think he's GonNa react to seeing the people of sterling character like this ambassador who's GonNa be the first to go up and smart to make him the first guy watching these people say he did it well you. Donald Trump is a performance artist at his core. He doesn't care about public policy. Doesn't care about the public. Good he cares about being center stage and he's profoundly where the power hour of television and he's profoundly where of how people can be influenced by others in front of a screen who have credibility and and not only these people have have credibility their military trump is prided on surrounding himself with military advisers. Sees them as Macho. He seems authoritative. And now those very same people we're going to go before the American public and say that the president of the United States not only was a participant. He was the ringleader of an extortion scheme. The goals of which were to smear political rival and to do a favor I think ultimately for Russia which was to weaken on crane so the national security threat is in the White House and and that's a story. I think it'll come out of this testimony from people who are essentially defining themselves as nonpartisan actors. They care about public policy. They care about civil service service. They they've spent years in this before. Trump came into the White House before Obama was in the White House. Yeah they made a career out of this and this got up ended by someone who was pursuing it. It was entirely self-serving. Yeah let me bring my sisters in law. Deans the Lord to people don't know that he's not just a funny guy and a comedian and a great guy. He's also a lawyer but our sisters in law. I WanNa get you guys into that is because I think for the Democrats it is like putting on a legal case this is this is the grand jury case right. This is where they're trying to find out if there's going to be an indictment that's it's like but to start with you first on this Maya Chris Hayes on his show last night made the point that like if you go back to Iran Contra. You didn't have Internet Ronald Reagan on the phone with the Ayatollah Khomeini saying pain. Save those arms to me. I'M GONNA get into the CONTRAS. If you had that he would have been a beach with trump. You have him on the phone and then he keeps saying read it. He keeps saying. Read me on the phone being guilty to call right so it's it is unusual. Kind of grand jury indictment but it's still basically is right. So how would you advise Democrats to play that out so I think what is so important and I agree with all all that Spin said before is the two words I think needs to get said over and over and over is personal. Gain personal is an all gain personal gain because whether it's bribery whether it's extortion abusive authority in all of the ways that this demonstrates a piece of authority including including selling our national security down the river for personal gain so there couple of key dates in this narrative that make that point that show why that call. That's a confession and one is may twenty third. We're going to hear from the witnesses like George can't let that that say the normal nonpartisan hardest experts were pulled out on May twenty third. That was the same day that the Department of Defense Certified to Congress that Ukraine had done sufficiently sufficiently on curbing corruption that they deserve the military aid. That takes away any defense. That this isn't personal. I'll gain right. Because part of why he saying read the transcript the transcript. I was all about corruption. Well know all about personal gain because the department defense on the same day that you that we now know from Psalm. l'an was the day he started getting the clear message had to deliver. You're on these. Investigations was the same day that the Department of Defense said now. We're good here. Good let me go to Barbara on this as well. Because so the the challenge here is that there are a lot of characters. There are a lot of people to remember. You got eleven eager. They're pretty memorable Juliani. You got a whole bunch of people but the the the case I think is fairly simple it is donald trump said clear Russia of what we all know. They didn't twenty sixteen clear them get Biden in trouble. That's it do that for me and then you can get the money that you're already supposed to have the what's is that a clear..

"Our this idea that Hunter Biden was involved in some sort of nefarious. Ukraine scheme isn't drew. So what would having him there. What would be the point? And the whistle blower is anonymous. So what is the point of all this. The point is a distraction and a sideshow trying to do anything to deflect attention away from the crimes crimes that the president committed that are impeachable and joy. All of this sort of conjures up a notion of all of these Republicans senators in particular. Who are are basically aiding and abetting in president trump's crimes because they're trying to bury them they know that crimes against the United States have been committed and real quickly one sentence from this big Old Blue Book that you and I have talked about before this is the criminal code that has all of our federal laws in the country and accessory after the fact is one sentence? And here's how it reads joy. It says whoever knowing that an offense against the United States has been committed receives relieves comforts or assists the offender in order to hinder or prevent his apprehension. Trial or punishment is an accessory after the fact. And you know what every politician who stands up knowing that the President committed a crime against the United States and says the president did nothing wrong they Elida the American people. That's really no different than just hiding the president in the basement of their house to try to keep law enforcement from rightfully getting in their hands on the president. Now you might say well it's hyperbolic to say all of these Republicans who lied to the American people and say the President committed no crime. It's it's just it's too much for us to get our arms around too. Many crimes are being committed. And it's a lot like littering or speeding. Well I would say not that. It's too much crime to get our arms around. It's too much crime not to get our arms around. This is something that we have to wrestle to the ground absolutely absolutely it calls into question the very the role the president and the Congress. And whether or not we're going to still be democracy where we're supposed to be Glenn Kirschner. It's always great to talk to you man. Thank you so much appreciate you being here. New Joy great seeing thank you and by the way I will let you guys know that. NBC News has now confirmed information about the Republicans desire of call Hunter Biden and the whistleblower. All right well coming up. I'm going to tell you how the biggest topic in democratic politics.
A Look At The Latest Movies In Theaters
"Movies tonight's premiere a lot of really interesting movies premiering tonight including the latest in the terminator series in the first movie that James Cameron's been involved in in a bit joining us now to talk about terminator dark fate and a few others is sorry bunch Washington post center stage contributor and movie critic joining us here in the here who have program said bunch good to talk to you about friends here in Cleveland how are I'm great Bob I'm great it is it is kind of a weird weekend at the at the movies you've got you've got a couple of pseudo award hi quite releases coming out this weekend you've got motherless Brooklyn right which is the ad Norton new are about life in New York City in the in you know thanks Vera it it is that the the problem with this movie is that it is the features as Norton doing that very ed Norton the actor leaf thing you know if you've seen the trailer a hundred times and I have a you know that this is you know that this is going to be which he you know kind of should the shuddering map and then you also have which is the story of Harriet Tubman I let me see if I may so he let me ask you a bit more about motherless Brooklyn because I am an Edward Norton fan and I'm I mean going going back to the illusionist I mean it I mean virtually all of the twenty fifth hour is that the kind of thing you're talking about when you see a typical Edward Norton type of it is a very it's a very after the manner performance yeah he's doing he's doing if he played a character who has as a mental disorder if they it's kind of a rain man white hi situation and you know it it it depends on how much patience you have for that like I it again my my my big complaint here is that the movie is two and a half hours long and the this is the an ad that somebody with limited patient it's hard to do that and so and there's also Herriot which unfortunately I I miss that my my child had the flu so I was not able to get the the the press screening of that but I'm I'm pretty interested in it in part because it makes Hardman look like a walking talking poster for the the the second amendment as she's you know she she has the arm up there she can head back south and and free the slaves I I I I am looking for that I have not actually seen it's like yeah I can't say one way or the other if it is they recommend or not recommend other terminator dark fate is is the big movie out this week of opening wide on you know four thousand three and is the first James Cameron involves terminator then in the the second one then he turned right back yeah and it is also a direct sequel to teach here this is one thing that people are fans if if there are fans out there who have obsessively watched all of the terminator movies you know terminator three terminator salvation terminator Genisys that that there are Connor chronicle this kind of gets all of that the the the with all of that out of existence and it's just the straight world two terminator two which that's great news that's great news because I I'm one of those who skipped all of those sorry I I I I don't know why the genesis and the others did not grab me because I was a huge terminator fan of the first two and I missed all the rest so I kind of thought I can't go see this I will have missed so much so you're saying that matter does not matter if you if you've seen terminator wanted terminator two you're all caught up I think I think most people have just seen terminator one in terminator three honestly I I have a soft spot for I thought it was interesting and there's something kind of different with the with the with the franchise the terminator dark fate starters there were it features the return of Linda Hamilton affair Connor she is back in trying to save a a young girl who lived in Mexico for being a what being wiped out by the terminator that is kind of a mix of the the terminators from the first two movies that if the if gotta act endoskeleton you know the metal and a skeleton with the metal liquid liquid metal poly alloy him make a kind of separate itself the can in separate itself into two sermon acres wow it's not just one and can I come in gonna coming hello and thank you and also a defining this girl is at a argument human I play by mackenzie Davis who who is the is the interesting actress she was on the halt and catch fire the prestige internet TV are you know prestige SL on AMC about the the ride the use a mac whatever Bubba around the figure out so the bunch though about terminator dark fate is is at his age he doesn't look like in cannot be the terminator of the past what role does Arnold play in his terminator by a persona in this thing sure well I I I don't want to spoil too much but but Arnold is also back he he will be back he is back and he is playing a terminator that has that came back from from the past and have kind of that'll that'll down almost the he has he has a family and I I'm not joking not a joke you have a family and his family is a family of five plus I mean I I get was it too much okay bye I got too much it is it is interesting you know there's there's there's a whole gender studies dissertation the written about the evolution of the terminator through through the years you know the in the four and like the role of masculinity in society or something as in the first movie right he's just as big Bob naked that you'd write me right goes around killing people and you know he is very of what product any you know and then in the second movie he had you have to learn to feel any you know he he gave he did he get them humor and you get them on personality and then in this movie he is again almost domesticated and it's very strange to her watch he that play out on screen it's not bad exactly if it's just strange I don't know I mean but the problem with this movie is that it totally fine but nothing more than that and if you if you want to revisit this world and you want to do it with James Cameron I think you need something a little more than fine but I also don't know that there's there's that much more you can do with the terminator movies right if it's a movie about you know sending a robot back into the past to kill somebody who is important to humanity future and you can only do that so many times with the before before the well really run right right well yeah I I just I think it I I think you could I I I I can't I can't give us a strong recommend in the sense that I don't think it's a much the gotta you gotta get out there you're gonna be wowed by it but it's it's okay it's fine you won't hate it if if mediocre we're not gonna see Arnold on skis jumping over cage shark though you're here you're telling me it's it's it's a less okay I feel like that sounds may have jumped the shark when you told me there's a terminator family I don't know how that's going to play out they said the only ask you one other question also opening this weekend I'm AT and if you've seen it or not but I'm interested just because of the heavy weights involved deniro has taken on a break from bashing Donald Trump and decided to make a movie here with Pacino and with the ray Romano as well it's the Irishman the Jimmy Hoffa another Jimmy Hoffa a vehicle here any thoughts on that one well I actually see that this morning there's a press screening the hot so I I do not have any thought Jeff yeah I I I don't be is it actually out in theaters now is that I had seen the ingleses opens today now so that yeah yeah yes so it is it okay after this is a necklace release it is going to be playing limited in a few theaters around the country it is a and I I just looked it up it is playing in DC so I I see it in a couple hours I will let you get back and let everybody know how good it is next week I yeah but it is it is out in a limited run in theaters right now mostly landmark they think and then it's going to be on Netflix on I think the fifteenth but let me I I will I will I I saw I saw the promotion for the movie yesterday on I don't know if it was the today show for what it was but but I did see here in interview no one today but anyway I did see an interview with the three of them and you know anytime you see anytime you see deniro and Pacino get together on screen which they have done numerous times it's it's huge it's you know either the chemistry is always perfect and and and it's always it the question is about the story which you'll find out later this morning but I'm also curious to see whether or not Robert de Niro's brand has been damaged or diminished at all because of his you know is this political career now seems to be as important to him is that his acting career and some people love his you know outside interests bashing Donald Trump and some people really resent it'll be interesting to see how audiences respond yeah so it it's on that puts on November twenty seventh in theaters now it in a few theaters now Hampel theaters now and then they'll be on Netflix starting November twenty seventh you know it's interesting because I I it'll be it'll be hard to judge exactly what what the response to this movie is because Netflix doesn't release any actual data you know they they don't release box office data they don't release of the data who actually watch it the movie and how much of it so it's hard it's hard to say if audiences will you know will stay away from that new models sorry is this a new model big you're right I mean it's Netflix produced and I think I saw on exposures today it's a hundred sixty million dollar budget so it's a massive budget movie if I saw that correctly in its Netflix and they are going to put it on Netflix but it's going to have a limited run in theaters is that a new model I don't I don't recall that being a very common thing if it's Netflix for them to put it in the mix we asked for a while they do it they do it for the they do it for you know doctors even type movie the the awards contenders because in order to qualify for the Oscars you have to have a theatrical run in in at least New York and Los Angeles or you know one week or two weeks it if if the thing so they they expand that a little bit and do you know Chicago the others but it is it is not a it is not the standard necklace really followed not the first time they've done that they did that last year for Roma and some of their other movies ballad about their Scruggs and and a couple others and they've they've done it a couple times this year but it is it's very it's very strange because the because of the way they work the major theater chains that want to work with them they have to do the right in the route well I'll tell you what Sonny it's a really interesting mix there's terminator if you're a fan of the series of special the first to go to that one if you can stand two and a half hours of jittery go see motherless Brooklyn and we'll find out next week what you thought of the Irishman sunny bunch Washington Post movie critic thank you so

Inside the Debate Between Netflix and Big Theater Chains Over ‘The Irishman’
"Frank Big Business and the government they're trying to pull us down afflicts film stars Robert De Niro Pacino Joe Pesci but seeing the three and a half ABC in eight theaters in New York and Los Angeles before heading to the streaming service on November cynical. Hi How are you Steve Good Good Nicole good you first please explain what in line and follow the rules that the traditional studios have beneath that wants to make their subscribers happy by bringing them their content as soon as possible there would be an exclusivity period for that long before they would put it on their streaming service. I mean I think Netflix is coming around to the idea of some limited but they don't spend a lot on marketing so what happens in the traditional they will no it's in theaters to go see it and then if you have to wait these seventy two time so studios have to pay again to market the movies so it's really a lot of money but it also on Netflix on November twenty seventh will there be the option for theater chains I once it opens on their service as long as theater chains want to keep it in fusing to play by Netflix is rules which are much more truncated released Windows Wendy agent here in Los Angeles before expanding to a handful of others what is that a movie is going to debut in that theater and it's kind of there's not a Lotta single screens left in New York City so they're kind of recreating the old time Hollywood but Netflix is actually in the process of trying to buy that theater it's an independent movie house there films as they see fit in their retrospectives and the repertory theater that they are are we talking about potentially well they used the department as theaters and then when you add in marketing costs it goes lower than that as theater to see it I mean the film has received rapturous reviews critics are loving it S. because it is so risky and it's much safer to put it on your service and then a another major net flix project and that's quite owns Roma can you remind us how chains refused to play it the smaller ones the landmarks the Alamo powerful in the big budget feature film industry will movie theaters become you know launching their service in two weeks is a huge proponent of the theatrical as with the movies that make a ton of money at the box office and they stay in theaters for a very money behind their Disney plus service so that needs to work out really well for them as well and who studios so they're going to have to figure that out as they go
