"We are back with Jane Fonda Joy. Yes. So Jane in new a couple of other people like Lizzo and John Legend an open letter in support of what they call defunding the police. Now, that's a phrase that is I believe misunderstood and used against the correct people. Can you explain what that actually means? So that people understand that defunding police doesn't mean you're going to eliminate the police force. Well. A, very good example of what it looks like as Newark New Jersey. Where they created a community. Team? To go door to door and check on people and take care of people and find out what what's wrong and if there's a problem they go in before the police do and kind of Suss it out it's it's so that the police force it's led by the community the police comes in when needed you don't totally do away with the police, but there's not the humongous amounts of money that are going to fund the police that instead should go to. To the community needs and that in itself will help reduce trouble and rising rise. OPS. Uprisings and. And it's working very very well. So that's what we mean. We're not talking about doing away with the police we're talking about reconfiguring it and having. Communities take the lead. So. Then why don't we call it reconfiguring the police instead of De Fund the police it's such a volatile phrase I think in the causes so much disruption and misunderstanding it's like the word feminist and liberal which has been taken over by the right wing of this country to make it a negative thing because they did the same thing with this. What you and I are white and I think this is a moment in history when we have to sit back. And take our cues from Movement for black lives. there. Decide they do how they do what how they name it. That but you've been part of K. I go along with that listen it's fine. You've been part of the Social Justice Movement since the Seventies. So how today's protests compared to what you've experienced over the decades chain. Yeah well, social media changes everything. You know it has its bad parts, but it's kind of wonderful when you're an organizer and you're trying to pull together demonstrations, protests uprising so that changes but also. I think the fact that a lot of the Movement for black lives are especially black lives matter is led by women. And they lead with joy I I watched joy I watched the. The national. Black Convention last week. It's the first one since nineteen, seventy two and it was fabulous and what was what's really impressed me was how joyful it was and I. I spoke Patrisse cullors since the CO founder of black lives matter and she said, that's right. We have to lead with joy and I think that that. vibe believe it or not that. Part of the Movement for black lives makes it more welcoming to people who maybe have never been part of protests and uprisings, and is what gave the the uprisings and continue to give the uprising such such diversity. Also, I think people have been inside clip kept inside because of the pandemic for so long that they they wanted to get out. So that work in the end, the uprisings favor, but also I think the Yarmuk has also show the essential workers, most of whom are people of Color, how miserably treated they. have been they're not paid enough. They have no protections and yet they are the people that make our lives work smoothly and I think there's a tremendous feeling of support for them. So I think people were people were ready to step out of their comfort zone and do something in solidarity with the with the black lives. So I think it's just been great and I think it's GonNa do more than just protests I think is going to really lead to things. I. Don't think this is not going to go away. No, it's not going anywhere. It's not going anywhere because we all see ourselves now people now see themselves as being. Also on the receiving end of a lot of things. So maybe this is what it what it takes. It always takes people to see themselves in order to make change. It's. So good to see you just always. So proud that I know you.

"Right back. By. Dolphins. Does Oscar winner and legendary activist Jane Fonda think the black lives matter. Movement has been effective in getting its message to the people she's live on the view next. Jane. Fonda. Is a Hollywood icon. She's known for activism as well as her acting, but her book, what can I do my path from climate to spare to action is out now and with wildfires still raging in the west coast, it could not come at a better time. Please welcome to Fabulous Jane Fonda Good Morning Jane. Fonda. Hours reading here you were arrested. One you arrested five times trying to raise awareness for the climate crisis and you say civil disobedience has to be the new norm. Now, I've always known that but how do we get other people to recognize that this is what we must do in order to make the change we want to say. Well, apparently, there are thirteen million Americans who are prepared to engage in civil disobedience and risk getting arrested, but they've never been asked. And so what I'm doing is going after the great unasked. The fire last week. The fired Ruben fraud had settled on route fifty thousand people watching to you all on the zoo. That's nothing on the soon on the view but every ethnicity. But for us, that's great. There are more and more people who are. Paying, attention and wanting to get involved an tens of thousands of them were volunteering get out the vote registering people to vote re registering people who have been purged from the polls. People are people are. Active and involved as pretty great. Well. You acknowledged in the book which is fantastic. By the way it's it's a guy to activism. That not everyone can or should engage in civil disobedience. People of Color and undocumented immigrants have much more at risk and you also write about being treated differently in jail because you're white and famous. What did you observe when you were in jail as a white and famous person? Well. Thank you for saying that I definitely, my experience is not the same as it would be if I was a person of color black, particularly a black woman. There's something about putting your body on the line aligning yourself totally with your deepest values that is very empowered even though you're having an cups and shackles put on you and you've lost all control, you still feel very empowered and joyful elaborate look around and see the other people with me. I could tell they were feeling the same thing. It's. It's stepping stepping up your game and it, and it feels good and. The scientists. Who usually are below the radar? To be you know politicized but they have come out saying. You got cut fossil emissions than half in ten years, and we need unprecedented numbers of people. Involved, and that's what we do. We have to organize mobilize millions of people to force the government to do necessary and I and I think we're going to do it. Three and a half three and a half percent of people all you need to win and that's eleven and a half million people at Macau we can do it. Okay. Okay so congratulations Jane on all your good works I had said it off camera saying it again on camera I appreciate everything you do. But let's do a little politics because you say this next election is literally do or die which I totally agree with you at one point you thought you could actually appeal to trump's vanity unbelievable to get him to address the climate crisis, but you didn't get past Ivanka what happened tell? Well. I I am. This kind of ma'am. If you get enough good lookin women there kneeling in front of them saying you can be the greatest hero. The world has ever seen. It'll be huge if you just. Do Away with fossil fuels and move us into a clean sustainable energy future and explain to do it that he would that he would want of skis sweat. So i. told him that. Nothing. Well You know the US is facing so many issues right now, the pandemic racial injustice, the climate crisis you write that they're all interconnected and that communities of color are disproportionately affected. Can you talk a little bit more about that? Yeah well, it's there's a lot of levels to it. First of all, the fossil fuel industry very deliberately puts its infrastructure it's wells it's racking bids, its refineries and incinerators in communities of color thinking that these people don't have enough power to push back and complain, and as a result, the people who live there are getting sick especially respiratory problems, which makes them extremely vulnerable to the cogan pandemic What has brought us to this point in terms of the climate crisis. Comes from the same mentality that raw that had slavery. Create the economy in this country. Treating people like they weren't human and putting them into bondage. It's the same mentality and. And so when we talk about the climate crisis, wait, we were really talking about everything and extractives xenophobic. Entitled Mindset that has to be done away with because the crisis that we're facing isn't just a a climate crisis, an empathy crisis inequality crisis so we really have to. Change a lot of. This country starting with loss so fuels and then moving to. How do we become a carrying country and taking care of ourselves and sharing resources and? You know making it so that everybody has a decent life doesn't have to live in constant anxiety about whether they can afford to. Have a roof over their head and put food on the table. I mean, this is a a moment. We're slow lucky to be alive right now to fight a fight that can determine whether we go forward as a as a country that cares about people or we Or we become like Brazil and Russia countries that are governed by strong men who don't give fluffy rat's ass about people. There you are, and when we were going to go coming back because we have to talk about with you Jane, we'll be right back. Right now at this defining moment in.

Joe Biden, Kamala Harris First Joint Interview
"World News Tonight Anchor David Muir and Good Morning America Co anchor Robin Roberts. Joe Biden laid out the stakes in this election, blaming President Trump for the severity of the Corona virus crisis. Do you blame President Trump for lives lost? I don't blame him for the current crisis. I blame him for wrecking wave. Not dealing with solutions. He hasn't listened to the scientist. And while Trump has attacked by then for campaigning from home, Biden says Trump's push for large scale in person events is dangerous, even deadly. Look what happens. What what's happened with his his events. People die. People get together. They don't wear masks. They end up getting cove. They end up dying with his running mate by his side. Kamala Harris asked about that pivotal moment at the Democratic debate when she took bite into task for his record on race. A lot of people cannot let that go the way you challenged him. So how did you go from there to here? I want Joe Biden to be the next president of the United States. I believe in Joe Biden. I believe in his perspective, and frankly, I think that's that conversation is a distraction from what we need to accomplish right now and what we need to do. Harris was also pressed on Biden's shocking comment this spring. That left critics saying he's taking the black vote for granted. If you have a problem figuring out what your Sameer Trump You a black, so when you have a running mate Makes a comment like you ain't black and lead some people to say just doesn't get it. Have you been able to speak truth to him about that? Listen, when Joe and I talked about and have talked about, frankly, over the years, But in connection with this race about Miss State of Black America, he has a deep sense of awareness and knowledge about racial disparities, inequities and systematic racism. Pushing back against Trump's attacks. Biden promised no new taxes on the middle class, so no new taxes $400,000 down. There would be no need for any Guidon, who has come under attack for his age, also shot down any suggestion that he limit himself to just one term. You're leaving open the possibility you'll serve eight years now. Looking ahead. Biden and Harris both say they are already preparing for their debates. Biden, saying he could hardly wait to take on trumpets. ABC News correspondent Mary Bruce reporting Come on news time 8 21. It's time to get to our propel insurance.

And she someone that when she was. Md Anderson diagnosed for the third time she went to the Chapel and said Lord use this cancer for good wasn't Lord he'll me? It wasn't anything selfish. The most selfless prayer that I've heard and He did use it for good and her message was joy when she was battling it and her message after his been joy. And we've been able to use that as a movement called pimp enjoy for her but it made me think when I was reading your book on my Gosh. She made her message.

Evidence considered considered by the Senate Laura Ingraham mass last night to her as well. It was a it was a very legitimate reasons. I'm just saying it's a question that shouldn't be difficult one if you're adding. I'm not a lawyer while she trial what you do. I don't know why she did it but I I can tell you I you know if you're in Arizona and if you're in the rest of the country you like what she did. Did you know what you can do. You can donate to her if you don't like what she did. You can donate to mark Kelly. Who is currently leading her by two points the Arizona member Martha Marceca Kabq?

She's a Democrat but she's like very votes on the right as as well and I think she should take more pages from Kristen's this mix. Sally took a page from Trump's book by attacking the press. It's like a dictatorship move. You know you attack attack the press. He's a good but she was going after CNN not motto thankless job being Capitalistic Wash.

The ship gets back contract. He that time could not supposed to go to three. Not One you too could not get that thing back untracked when I think about Ernie as a personality he's very competitive and I don't know how many people know this. They obviously saw the run through the tape moment. And Ernie wanted it recalled because he said there was a false start and obviously that it contained a bit of controversy. But if we rewind it was perhaps around that same season I hosted believe we called it. The All Star Challenge Lynch where those four guys had to compete in a series of sports challenges. They threw football's they hit golf balls. They hit baseball's they kick Soccer balls it was easily one of the funniest days of my life. I mean because well. It's those guys attempting something athletic in the shape that they're in but what stood out to me was Ernie how serious he was about it and he won the whole thing on. Oh He's super competitive like beyond think about last year when you and I were in Charlotte and we did the the the race track event. Yes I remember lining up against Ernie. It was this is my first. It was our first race against each other and he didn't WanNa hit the gas. He didn't WanNa hit the pedal without making sure. Everything was do you all in check with his car and so so he's super competitive. I love it so cheers Ernie to thirty years on inside the NBA. I cannot believe you've been doing it that long.

We have to because Ernie Johnson celebrated his thirtieth anniversary at Turner sports which I could not believe but he came to work and had this to say Talkradio but I do the commencement address at the University of Georgia. Back in twenty seventeen and I told those graduates that day. Get a job that you get to do and not that you've got to do. I said to many folks driving to work with US frown on their face because they've got got to go to work. I said I've had thirty years of drive in here because I get to and that is such a blessing. I love this place place. I love this company and the people who make it up as you mentioned when we were approached about this episode the Thanksgiving Week episode. We were asked who some of our heroes rose were for me mine. The one that immediately came to my mind Ernie Johnson not just because of the kind of broadcaster that he is which sure in every sense of the word is worth watching but the kind of man that he is because of the kind of life that he lives. I I remember the first time I was onset on inside the NBA. And I looked to my right. I was sitting in Chuck seat. I looked to my right. It's Kenny down the line. EJ and shack and there are so many times in my living room that I have watched that show and to be sitting on that stage and into have Ernie commit commanding in running the team as you are. I mean. He's a point guard on say in the truest exactly hall of fame. Point Golic Point Guard. Well Kristen everybody sees Ernie Johnson on television. Some see him the person we see him. The personality analogy at time and for me my favorite. EJ moment one was didn't believe his bow ties. He tied himself my. I thought they were like clip on. I don't know why maybe shack put me onto it. I don't know so I asked him and he tied his bow tie in front of me and saying as he tied it. He's serious about those boats. How he's very serious about his bow ties making sure that their straight on both sides like not crooked all that and then my second? EJ moment was on air air when shack and chuck got into it about going to high back. Yeah three and Ernie is just dying. Ratting was one of the funniest funniest clips of Ernie. Ever be.

I always have been very you know to myself and with my thoughts thoughts on that but I actually started meditating About three years ago and it really has made a world of difference it just kind of especially first thing in the morning. We're really so middle of night but the first thing in the morning to kind of set my intentions and I know when people say meditate. Well how can you not have thoughts. It's not but you don't have thoughts. You recognize that you have you push them aside you focus on your mantra and it's something that it It's it's it's it's it's a two do I because it energizes me and relaxes me at the same time.

I feel like I'm GonNa be working for you guys one day. I kind of remember me. Can we be invited to the master's in those that minute that you just spoke.

"Robin Roberts was living her dream when she got the devastating news. She had breast cancer. She beat that. And then another life threatening illness followed this time, she battled for months, again, not knowing what the outcome would be this chapter of her life could have very easily been the end of her story. But it wasn't she survived and is now back on the air going strong doing what she loves prior to her health crisis. It appeared that career-wise everything came relatively easy for Robin. Her big time job at ESPN led to a co hosting position alongside Diane Sawyer and Charlie Gibson at good Morning, America. But in reality her overnight success was years in the making. Everybody has a story. And there's something to be learned from every experience. Use your life as a class. This is masterclass with Robin Roberts when someone asked me, Robin. What's the secret to your success? I tell him being the daughter of Lawrence and Lucy Marion Roberts. They are the two most influential people that I will ever meet my mother and father that a time when blacks in this country had very little rights. My father would saying I'm gonna fly one day, and he went on to be part of the fame. Tuskegee airman. My mother grew up in immense poverty in Akron, Ohio. And she received a one hundred dollars scholarship went to Howard University. She was appointed by the governor to be in our state of Mississippi to do various things this woman, was brilliant. But they never stood on a on a soapbox and said, I am the first black man to do this on the first black woman that ever did. They did that it was their their share example that inspired their children. It's amazing. When I think of what my mother and father both achieved, and they are my role models. They are the true trailblazers. For me, my mom and dad, my father was in the air force and in nineteen sixty eight he was stationed in Izmir Turkey and the great thing about both my mother and father. We're gonna live abroad, why live on a military base. That's completely American. So we lived in town. We got an apartment had Turkey. Neighbors had the learn the bear itchy Durst bash alter yeti seconds don't was on. I think that's one through ten and Turkish if my memory serves me correctly, but it was wonderful. It was an adventure. The GNC was our backyard, and we would instead of going back to the US during the holidays, we would travel Europe. Remember, we were in London for the fourth of July. It's about five years old. And I didn't understand why they weren't celebrating the fourth of July in London England the innocence of that time, and I'm very grateful that my parents is exposed us to to the world. And then we moved a to Mississippi and August of nineteen sixty nine we moved to pass Christianne. It's affectionally called the pass everyone there. They could not have been more welcoming and accepting. It's really funny because when you're on national television, it's like being a military brat. Everybody takes. Ownership of you. But you really don't have a home because you're in homes all across the country. And that's why the pass is so important to me because that's my anchor. That's home. That's when people come up it's not necessarily because I'm on television. Or what it's like, you're Larry losing Marion's daughter. Oh, my. Oh, my they straight. Yeah.

And then that's as close as we could get in after the storm. And then we drove all night to the Mississippi Gulf Coast all the while. I had no idea about my family because the phone lines were down. We're driving through the night. We make it to the Gulf Coast where a had grown up. I know what's supposed to be there. And I know what's not there anymore because of the storm the funny part is that ABC thought they were sending me down there to report I was down to my mama, and my sister and my nieces we're about to go on the air. I tell my producer. I said you set up you set up for the live shot. I'm gonna go and try and fight. And my mom, and there was a police officer that was with us. So you set up if I can get back in time to go on air. I'll do it. But if not I'm sorry, we're able to find the house the neighborhood was just terrible. But the house was standing there was some roof damage police officers with me, and he has who knows big police lights we knock on the door. I hear my sister. Like who's it'll Mike? It's me. It's me. It's Robin opens the door because she has it big light. She's like, no not like like, I would send the camera, but that's my family. Like, I would send a camera that moment. Dorothy, not knowing what's going to happen. And I hear this faint voice in the back of the house Rodman. His mom, and I go running back there and she's fine. And she's just sitting there. And she goes I knew you'd find me. And I said, I'm glad you find mum and there was damage to the house and. I wanted to stay there. And my mom was like, no go and do your story. Let people know be our voice. Let people know how bad it is here. I made it back to the live shot with just like ten minutes to spare. So I think I'm okay, I'm like, you know, getting all right? Got it. All right. And I report on the destruction and everything just just the facts, ma'am, being the anchor. And then at the end of the report, Charlie Gibson on never forget this wearing my IFP a little earpiece. So I can hear back in my ear Charlie said, and I just looked in the camera and started crying. There's no crying in network television. But I'm crying because two reasons one I knew that there are a lot of people tuning in that morning who didn't know if their loved ones were okay. I knew what that felt like because that had been me just hours before not knowing about my family. So I knew what they were thinking in. There was also part of me that was like I have just gotten myself heard you do not show emotion. And my goodness. Just the opposite happen people were drawn to the fact that I could just. Be real and to to share the pain that I was feeling at that time. And it just again taught me that the type of journalists that I am and what people relate to is just being able to share my journey. I love sports. But when we moved to Mississippi only thing they let me let a little eight year old girl do with bowl. So what I bowled and loved it wanted to be a pro bowler would watch it on ABC. I went onto his state bowling champion. I can still remember the local headline petite Caglar win state title. I think it was about twelve years old. Hello pigtails. And all because that's all they would let me play. They didn't have other sports available to to little girls. And then once title nine came along it allowed me to have a college scholarship. It allowed me to play sports the way it just created that opportunity for girls a back in the nineteen seventy. That's has stayed with me. And I often say I'm the proud product of title nine, and it's not because I went on to be a sports journalist. I would have said that had gone into education law medicine. I know because I played sports growing up. I would have been the best dog on doctor lawyer you fill in the blank because of those skills for generations men have been exposed to that have helped him go on to be successful in life. It really helped me understand winning and losing. And so when I would apply for jobs, and I didn't get a job that I wanted. I didn't panic as much as someone who didn't play sports because they would think that was to be all end all that. That was the end of the end of the game. I kind of knew that you could still go on and be victorious. But it's those intangibles all those wonderful qualities that come through playing athletics. Stay with you. And it's something that I know without a shadow of a doubt has has shaped the success. That others feel that I have achieved I about five ten wasn't not so tall now. But when you're the eighth grade and five ten pretty tall. And you don't have to worry about getting the proper position you pretty much like, okay? That's that's my rebound. Just keep going a little groggy. I got this. I got this get the high school. You. I'm still tallest one of my team. And so I have to play the center position, but go on to college. No one wanted to five ten post players. So I had to learn a different position. I had to learn how to shoot from the outside. I had put myself in position for some good things to happen. If you position yourself the right way. You don't have to be the tallest fastest biggest. And I was thankfully able to translate that to the real world going. Oh, okay. I'm not the prettiest. I'm not the most this. I'm not the most that. But you know, if I keep working I keep positioning myself, some good things are going to happen. And thankfully, that was the case more of our conversation in just a moment. Support for this episode comes from Thomas English muffins.

"robin roberts" Discussed on No Limits with Rebecca Jarvis
"That is good advice. And I think that the reason I like it coming from you is because most people look at Robin Roberts, the good Morning America anchor. Former top of the line ESPN anchor inducted into the women's hall of fame the Walter Cronkite award winner, you you you've done it. All you bestselling author podcast or you've done it all and it's hard to see on the outside looking in. I think the fact of the matter is it's not this seamless upward trajectory of path. That's what's so important. That's why I love my podcast so much as well. Because I want people to know because I think. I don't know why some people feel that when they look at someone that has reached a level of success. Whatever that is that the road has been easy that they're fearful and all that. And I I just want to pull back the curtain on the pockets. They'll that's not Detroit. Yeah. That's not the case, you know. And and Gabby Gabbay Sibanda said something very interesting in the podcast. She was she was as fearful of succeeding as she was in failing as I wo- because precious came out. I mean, they they put precious together movie that she became nominated. But it took a long time before it actually got on the screen. So you it's so she knows this movie's gonna come out, and everyone is saying is going to change your life. But in the meantime, she still trying to make ends meet..

Going to be helpful David Spade was on, good Morning America today and he did he's. Doing a press tour he's talking about his new net flicks movie father of the. Year and his book and he was asked at the end of his interview by Robin Roberts how his family is coping with the tragedy of losing.

Like singing artists thong auditioning for, them on, the voice or something happening awkward duchess, Meghan is excited to. Show Prince Harry everything she loves during, a USO tour so they are planning to come, to the United States isn't that exciting tripping victims No they won't be but Megan will be introducing. Harry to everything he she loves about, the US I think that will be good for her. She's going to do some summer traveling here to see friends and family on her own and then be able to do an official Royal tour in the spring you gotta stay connected to your roots just think, about how different her life as it's crazy and the other story from people magazine is that she's trying to navigate that role and she's learning the ups and. Downs sources saying she has quickly adopted too many of the minutia of Royal do's. And don'ts but, she is found certain rules in the Royal household difficult, to understand like the fact that the Queen prefers women in dresses or. Skirts rather than. Trouser suits and she's often asking Harry why things have. To be done in a certain way they source saying. I. Think. She, finds it, a, little frustrating at times but. This is her new life and she has to deal with it that's fair enough? We find things about Royal protocol to be very confusing. We're not part of the Royal, family were just America exactly exactly well Elizabeth Ries yes. You.
