The australians essentially decided to replace their existing collins class submarines richard come to the end of their useful life with new pout submarines rather than diesel-powered submarines. The previous decision was to gain with france which has quite a good recorder producing diesel-powered submarines. It can actually produce a new pout. Submarines for self. I don't think he's ever exported them considered it. But anyway australia's decided they need to new capelle. Submarines had this deal with the french for the best essentially for the Diesel-powered ones they basically dish that and gone in with the united states with britain as well although the suspicion is that as far as the building of the new submarines consent bush will be done as an australian yard in adelaide. That will be done. Under american supervision with the british relatively small this is partly because britain is producing own new class of astute hunting submarines as well as its missile submarines an in both cases. It has pretty serious problems with developing the reactors rolls royce history. Having great difficulty in getting things right the to another words in america wants a more reliable. So that's the basis of it. The the fringe obviously are pretty furious of this because what was a pretty big contract with a lot of money in. It was basically dish in favor of a basic and anglo american agreement. So that's the background this at beyond that. Of course you have all the issues in the eu and the whole question of how one handles a rapidly growing china which does have increasing military capabilities.

She didn't have any fail on her forehand whatsoever and her serve at the start of that match. I think she had hit five votes. After a couple of service games he was really really struggling but then as we were recording she got it together and i think we pretty much finished the podcast with her five to up in that third set and in control having taken charge looking like she was going to win and then what happened was that she loves serve twice when serving for the match and that had been a theme of how i two rounds hair. She'd lost serve both times. Seven for the action still recovered to win. She'd been insistent and have press conference that it wasn't an issue.

And i noticed that he comes in and goes to his office at seven in the morning. Seven in the morning seven in the morning so i started coming in at six thirty so i would be at my desk having commuted from new jersey at six thirty and he would pass my little cubicle. See me sitting there and he would walk to his office so the first week he walked by me second week. He's nods third week. He says good morning by the fourth week he says who are you and what and what are you doing here. Come see me on saturday because he worked saturdays. So i go into see him on saturday and he says you know i see you more than i see my vice presidents. You know who are you. Tell me about yourself and you know. I'm not acts. What can you do so can't do these interest rates for me. And so he said. Tell me three things you think. I should be working on now. I was right out of school. The ceo right. Tell me three things that you think he should. Why why did you even say this was. Was this a test. He was giving you seeing that. You seem to be motivated but making sure you were for real like this. It was his way of getting to know me because he was curious about. Who is this guy who's beats me to work every day. I'm sure his ego was wrapped. Up and i'm the first guy to work every day and now a trainee is sitting there every morning. He doesn't know what to get in there. Four five all. He knows noses. I'm there before him and he wanted to see how i thought and i told him while. I think you know the men's department isn't well. Well run. And i think the hr department he says you know i like you. I'm gonna make you a buyer which meant i stepped over being an assistant buyer. I stepped over being a department manager. I jumped from being there a couple months three or four years ahead based on this conversation with the guy he said. I'm going to have you go see the senior. Vp next week. And he has a job for you well. He must've told the senior vp. Who hated the idea fell totally put out. And the guy said well. I have four buying openings. I've been told to make you a buyer. Very nice say that way. There's the men's sweaters said well. that's kind of interesting. I have no idea what the says you would go to factories and design houses and literally buy the items that go on the shelves in a department store that sells many different brands or see fashion in europe and go to asia. And have it made and you know a sort. The sweater department of sex with avenue. He said no that. I have somebody in mind for that. Men's neck wear ties at the time. That could be interesting. I got somebody in mind. I'm gonna make you the underwear pajama and sock buyer. I said underwear pajama sock. I don't wanna do that. He said what are you crazy. You're going to be a buyer after being here for six minutes. So i said all right. Well i'll do it. But i don't need any assistant. I can do it myself. Well first year at a forty percent increase and they made me the shoe buyer. And the guy said don't expect you're going to have a forty percent increase. Shoes are really hard and by the way. Today's thursday you're now the shoe by friday you have to go to on a buying. I don't know anything about shoes. I basically wore sneakers most of my life now. I'm the shoe buyer and what happened was because it was a business that had your name attached to results your results. Here's your thirty year down thirty so it wasn't about how you part your hair or do they like you or not like you. The results spoke for themselves. And that's all i want is so if i did well. You had to promote the shoe department. It was sleepy industy and fashion. And i had a huge increase in choose which they couldn't believe didn't you as a buyer or a young executive introduce a brand into america for the first time. Yes so you're remembering the story that my first buying trip to europe every day on the job i'm thinking i'm gonna go find fashion in europe by and i saw everybody wearing these Rubber soled wingtip in sort of tan leather everywhere. I went. I said kay that must be a trend and i bought a whole bunch of shoes and they came in six months later and the genetic sleep at night. I go to the stockroom. I open the boxes. I put them away and put the shoes out and it was dead on arrival. Nothing salt and i was so despondent. I mark them down and they sold out So what did that tell me. They were overpriced. The price was wrong. Right otherwise the fashion the fit the quality was right. Okay about the same time. These two guys walk in to see me from canada from roots and they were trying to sell me negative heel shoes where you the. He'll is lower than the front. They were supposed to be. Good for your back at the time. these fucking kramer shoes from seinfeld right. It's like the jumping shoes right. And i said well.

European called the nineties and two thousands where you're doing all that travel but you're managing a lot of people and you've got assistance. You know that that filter out a lot of noise for you and manage your schedule so you you know your your brain is going. But it's but you're you're you know you know where you gotta be and win vs today where we've got this thing in our pockets and it's expected that we are in contact twenty four seven and expected response times for things quicker and do we have it better off now or do we have it better off than when we figured out you know. Get interesting question. I i did have well trained help. And so my assistant would take at the time the mail or what became you know faxes whatever and she would sort it every day between urgent. You need to look at this today You need to look at it this week or she would put it in a travel folder. That i would take on the plane. And i would take the mail room and they would wait for me before i left. I would read it all through the plane right through the night comments a fucking ricksen paper the bricks of pen then when i would land would bring home these bricks four five inches thick and it's just a brick of of numbers. Nothing is just numbered. Page number number number number number two. What do you do with this. What he sees the music. I get off the plane and i take the package. That was pre. You know weighed and stamped. And i stick it in the envelope back to her but i also would come home at night after a long day and i would have bricks of information prepping for the next day it was it was just because all much homework spent a week on and you hand it to zack. And he spent ten hours on any hands it to me and i can spend an hour on it. It better be good. It better be right. It better be thoughtful and i would read it at night on my lap watching tv. But you know. I actually the old days gave me some insulation from this insanity where somebody sends you an email at eleven in at three in the morning. People are responding. And if you wake up and you're the last to respond you feel like you're slow. Yeah that has gone. That's the new being being getting to work after your boss right is being the last person on the chain to respond to the on the west coast when my job i used to have it on. The east coast always felt up. Woke up feeling goes on the back foot. Why i started getting up at five thirty i worked day goes from six. Am to three pm. I work east coast hours on the west coast.

"If there's dead rats in that store i will never forget the smell of the presence of a dead rat somewhere in the store the grocery store or fuck and marc jacobs. I can walk in there and go. Ooh because of that. Woolworth say you go down that speed. Lacing at footlocker yeah the speed. Lacing thing i did. I won those competitions at that at champs footlocker for license shoes real man was the speech app. They used to when i started those jobs. They used to give me crap. Because i was a ceo's kid but then it turned out. I could actually sell shoes. Pretty good in the they laid off pretty fast. And then i would give him. The ride is home in the lexus. And then it was great. Oh you drop me off at home and alexis okay. Well you remember our deal. You wanted to buy a car. And said i would match dollar for dollar on your earnings sold. A lotta shoes on hands in these soling shoes on sunday saturday and sundays. And then when you got your your paycheck and realized they took taxes away. What i do to welcome. But you saved up enough to to buy that mustang Yeah was the subaru. Before that we then traded for the mustang. Yeah what about you know. You've run companies where there is a person's name on the door and a person at the top of the pyramid whose name is on the door. And you've run companies where it's more non animus. Did no one really gives a shit who the executives are. What are some of the real core differences in working with those kinds of companies while not being the person whose name is on the door. Well look the first thing i always do. Is i have tremendous respect and appreciation for a founder. Somebody who had an idea how thought built it into something built up a name. Just like you're doing that. I mean what you've done as an entrepreneur starting from scratch so impressive to me. you know. maybe i've gone the other way. And i've climbed the career ladders and i've moved up and all that stuff but you know when i've gone to companies where the owner founder name on the door is You know one of the great asset. So i always start by saying you know. How do i enhance this. How do i improve this. How do i preserve this. But underneath that you've got to run a business properly or that won't carry you forward and so how you finance business how you manage it how you market it. How you merchandise it. How you staff at how you make. Money is agnostic between the two types of businesses. But when you have that type of ego have there been situations where you really had to stop the ego from doing something that could have been just catastrophic to the business for like an ego related reason. Sure and that's always a tough discussion and there's always you know there's a math point to be proven but it's never about the math. It's about how do you balance Either a branding moment. That doesn't make economic sense. may pay dividends long-term or owner founder. Wants to do something and you know my point of view was. I always tried to do as much as i could to accommodate those situations in less was gonna put us into a ditch in which case i threw myself in front of the bus and said this isn't gonna work for these reasons and you know you've got to trust me on this. I've given on all these other occasions but this time i think we gotta say now I yeah there. A couple of really funny specific instances. You've told me about that if you don't wanna mention An recorded medium later that dan. I'm sorry didn't go there. if you did. It would have been really funny. But it's okay if he doesn't want to until until today he wouldn't even allow me to post pictures of him on social media you. That's true because you know you. You never know who you told where you were not that you're being dishonest or anything like that but you know you know you got to juggle the ball you know and and i always tried to keep a personal low profile now sometime. My job doesn't always allow it. But i it's never been about me and you know your success in your career is about you but i also remember the time at woolworth on its way to being footlocker where we had security guards sitting in front of her house. Remember that guy following you to school following the school at followed the school. I never knew that. Tell me about yeah. turns out. Can't go near a school where i got. Larry remember that guy sat in a ford probe driveway. Yeah eating fucking mcdonalds for a couple of months probably right. Yeah we we needed security because you know we had threats and number following me to school though on the sly this whole time. Yeah will you keep that stuff in your head and you know forget it so yeah yeah much better at running things managing things doing the right thing but trying to keep a low profile as well. Now you're a now my anywhere. And now i mean who can't be worked from home at this at this stage of the game who can be right. did In you know as i grew up you know starting from our when. I was little our little house in in new jersey and then slightly bigger house slightly nicer cars slightly bigger to me. Your your your career seemed like a linear progression of bigger and bigger successes and it pretty much was just destroyed line. Ascent where was it. Not what are. Where's the big miss. That i don't know about well interesting observation. I u We started ma. You know your mother. And i started working at saks together and met there and You know got married there and start at the half kids and she stopped working. Believe it or not when we made the decision firdaus. Stop working. stay with you guys. She was making more than i was. Yeah we we that that comes up frequently and so it was. It was a decision who was going to stay home. Mom but honestly if mom had stayed in the workforce i she could have been a very successful executive. I mean she was. She has the mind for yeah. She was a vice president at saks. Fifth avenue when she left but she made the investment in you and alexis. And i think that was a good trade off personally but Look every job had its challenges. Every job had its Stress points again. When i went to the woolworth. Initially it had Thirty two companies in seventeen countries thirty of which lost money. And i gotta wonder how it gets there. I mean is. It's like looking at a nine hundred pound person going well. You didn't just wake up nine hundred pounds. You started at three and then four and then five. It was in slow decline since the sixties and i went there and ninety four so you can imagine the speed with which that declined and they had just fired. The ceo and the cfo corp. Cooking the books. And i had the unscramble a company that was losing nine hundred million about to go bankrupt and of course the day i started. They showed me the real books which were different than the outside books. And that caused me to go to the board and saying look you represented this to be this and it's really that i'm willing to try to work my way through it. But we're going to do it. Step by step and we started on the real books based on the real books and the real situation. Nightmares.

"Mean that it cannot be misused or political purposes. Now i realize there are other people who are culpable on the events of january six. I know nothing about it but the left wing fringe news media. Plays this game and it is not right. I i think you have to fix the internet century. Then you have to. You have to go in and systematically reform election laws eight by state so that they're fair and transparent and trackable paper abor trails are rebellious and this is something. Democrats did very effectively in terms of going to states and loosening a laws to their advantage. Very smart strategy. I think the people at the republican national committee must've been i dunno asleep you You do believe that. The election was fraudulent in other words. Like we've been told you can't say that but you believe this and others. It's not as though you don't know and you're just throwing this out enough kit. Here's what i what i'm saying. I have seen overwhelming and compelling evidence that would make that case. I would like to see that in some forum the courts. That's good enough for me legislatures. That's good enough for me but at least to be examined if at the end of that we determined that joe biden getting fact illegally win. Then they'll be no dispute about the legitimacy of his presence on the other hand. I was a realist. I understood that former vice president biden would be sworn in on january twenty. I understood the president would leave. Washington go to florida of you know. I understand the constitution if we do those two things if we if we fix the internet censorship problem which can be picks And if we end if we fix our state election laws so that they're very transparent now step four would be to clean house in republican party and get rid of those feckless turds. He won't stand up for the greatest president since abraham lincoln. Now when you stay feckless turds. You don't mean the word checklists because a lot of people are going to check to that.

"That makes sense. Yes, very tough And also I don't know what you're being offered. So you might have to talk to them and say, you know, um, I in something really conservative. Sounds like you might be a Mayan Southie really conservative. You know, you need to be somewhat. Somewhat aggressive and because you can afford to be it means you're gonna have some losses. Things air dropped. Things will go back up. But in the long run, you'll be you know a little bit better. But are you in it? Do you know anything about the kind of fun urine? Is that like a 2030 fun? 2040 2050. Is it that kind of phone? The 2014. You don't know. 2040 and I told the The company. I wanted to be aggressive because I've been told that you go aggressive early on in your in your 41 K and then become conservative with it towards the last five years of your career. Re accurate. That's Yeah, That's right. And so if you're in a 2040 fun you're okay. I wouldn't change anything and leave it alone. I think 2040 fund is a good is a good mix. And you know, the whole key is going to be to really continue to contribute and increase it it you know when you can I'm making chicken and I think Now. Roger You said you stopped for three years. What made you stop? I wouldn't management and I went back to the agreement position, which is a ground craft, and it didn't offer the thrift and investment plan so it automatically stop me from contributing and then I came back into management fell out. Four years ago, and I just never got back on the track to get into it. So I just started it back within the last three months. And I was just wondered if I'd waited too late. Are are, you know? Not that it's never too late, you know, would it Yeah, It's never too late. And you would have you know you lost those years, but that's that's water under the bridge. What do you want to think about that? You got plenty. You've got plenty of time. You'll do fine. You'll do fine. And your star continue to contribute. Stick with the 2040 fun and remember this that by nature, the 2040 fund does its own getting more conservative as you get older. So that's the idea of those funds that every year to they get a little more conservative as you go through time. So theoretically, I'm not saying you won't have to, but theoretically, you shouldn't have to do anything. You should be able to keep that and it should kind of be capturing some of that gain and getting a little bit more conservative. Then don't forget the 100% return that you make just by getting the company match. Right? How big was the reforms? Yeah, I mean, that's you. Oh, it's it's not. It's not Vanguard itself, but their funds. Their funds are not. 2020 40 fun is is not gonna be likely biblically responsible. You're not likely It's not. It's just flat out. Not I know. What is it? So, um You know there. I mean, they show off mutual fund remember, is ah group of companies a lot of companies and they all have so many of you have the same big companies and then A lot of different smaller companies. And you know the big companies and the ones that are the sum of the biggest violators. Off of You know not being difficult, responsible. But you gotta at least do that. You gotta get the match and Anything above that. If you want to get biblically responsible, then you gotta start to think about going into some other individual funds, which means you would be have to get real real conservative. Understand. Thank you very much for your time, sir. Oh, All right, Roger..

"I contributed it for several years and then stopped and was out of it for About three years and recently came back into it. It's gotta annual increase of 1% automatic increase. I'm 44 years old and can retire at 62 Is that That a good plan to be in or where I'm going to actually be able to see something out of this are my my two later. Get some advice on that. Well, is it do you contribute? Do I contribute and company matches up to 6% through Band Garden. Hey, Are you contributing 6%? No, I'm contributing 2%, currently with 1% automatic ankle candidly. Okay? So, um No, I would keep it. I wouldn't get out of it. I mean, I would just, you know. So I'll just say this day Gonna make a general statement to everybody listening. We have to understand everything that we have. When we have 41 case anything like it's about what things are invested in. Before one K in and of itself is not an investment. It's just an account. It's a type of account, but depending upon where it's invested in and what your options are, is everything That's everything about the account. So if you are invested in a very conservative position Then you need the pump that up a little bit. You need to be a little bit more aggressive and you need because you have time. That you're going to be in there and you need to contribute as much as you can consistently without any interruption, And I think you're do fine, but you don't want to be too awfully conservative. When you have so much time. Left between now and when you retire. That makes sense. Yes, sir. It does, and also I don't know what you're being offered. So you might have to talk to them and say, you know, um I in something really conservative. Sounds like you might be a Maya's healthy, really conservative. You know, you need to be somewhat. Somewhat aggressive. And because you can afford to be it means you're gonna have some losses, Things air dropped, things would go back up. But in the long run, you'll be you know a little bit better.

What made you stop? I wouldn't management and I went back to the agreement position, which is a ground craft, and it didn't offer the trick, an investment plan so it automatically stop me from contributing. And then I came back into management about Four years ago, and I just never got back on the track to get into it. So I just started it back within the last three months. And I was just wondered if I'd waited too late or are you know Not that it's never too late. I mean, would it Yeah, It's never too late.

You'll do fine. And just continue to contribute. Stick with the 2040 fun and remember this that by nature, the 2040 fund does its own getting more conservative as you get older.

So theoretically, I'm not saying you wanted to, but theoretically, you shouldn't have to do anything. You should be able to keep that and it should kind of be capturing some of that gain and getting a little bit more conservative.

"Wow We got a lot to get to Connecticut is open. New York. City should be opening about June fifteenth. We'll give you all the details about the judges phase one opening everything's GonNa start to open Even a mayor de Blasio always try to see if the slowest kid in the class gets it. Then you know you got through some even. He is starting to get it It's Memorial Day weekend it's Joe Bartlett when the when the New Year started it was twenty twenty mm. We're looking forward to the summer like I was. This is going to be a great year. The summer at twenty twenty was going to be a great summer. Who kind of imagined All of this but Summer begins officially. Today it's Memorial Day weekend. The weather's not that great but shouldn't Memorial Day. We can actually been next weekend. The twenty nine. This is a little early. Yeah so I remember the earlier in the year. So that's great. They may have an extra week summer. Who knew there'd be nothing but Connecticut is doing pretty well They've opened stores restaurants. I've been calling people in the big big stores up there and the malls and I said how's it going? These people are coming in people you know. They're anxious to get out there people coming. We're only at the thirty forty percent capacity though ahead to remind him you know you're only at five percent capacity before this began. They forget retail already died so But if you were driving around Stanford last night Bedford shoot. Where all those outdoor restaurant? There were people outdoors spread out if you were in Greenwich There was prime crab. Shell the Scowl J. House all the outdoor places and then on Greenwich Avenue Let the places put some tables outside They got a smart mayor. There's Fred Kamilo new mayor. This guy will figure this out the now. Here's what's going to happen there's The town was pushing for it. He's figuring out how do it? They'll close off parts of the avenue and let the restaurants put the tables out into the street and all over once that works. People are all watching Connecticut To weeks from now. This has worked. Everybody will do that even in New York. That's what we'll do it here. We'll close off some streets You know you go to Third Avenue on the east side Madison Avenue in the Seventies. We got a lot of restaurants in a row. They'll close off the streets and let them spread out into the street. Joe Bartlett doesn't know what we're talking about. 'cause he's in South Carolina where they went back to normal. What three weeks ago? I went to a restaurant last night. It was very nice restaurant but you could eat inside if you wanted to write the worst seats in. I'm not ready for that yet. Okay you don't feel well. You don't have many cases down there but if you were in New York City right now would you go to a restaurant if it opened. Would you feel little outside outside? I think you're fine. The service keep their masks Don They maintain their distance. No tables next to you. It's fine I I think I feel very safe eating out so listen to talk to every expert you can talk to every expert agrees on one thing. It cannot transmit in food. There's no way it's in your food that you're not possible now. What about the plate? What about the containers? The take out. It's possible but you know if you touch those just wash your hands afterwards and you find but all the experts now even that stupid. Cdc which is the other slow kid in the class. They're always way behind even there now. Changing their guidelines to say it's most likely never transmitted by a surface. They think it's always droplets person to person touch your droplets in the air. Very very rarely. Is it going to transmit on the surface so it's pretty safe to eat outside You know some people are afraid to go back to Sushi Sushi but again I've been huddling with a lot of restaurants with Sushi. Might be the safest thing you can eat. Because you know you've got that one Sushi chef there. He does everything. He cuts up. Everything does everything. It's not like a regular kitchen where there's a prep kitchen where like eighteen guys. Eighteen illegal aliens prep everything and then it goes to another station another station so forty hands of the time it gets like but again it should be pretty safe in a restaurant. I mean the all again now the only when you go to restaurant. We don't wear masks down there to you when you go to the store grocery store go into any sort of retail store you. Most people have mask on The only problem the restaurant when everybody's you have to wear the mask but when you sit down to eat you take it off. So now. Suddenly raises the tables with the masks of It's GONNA be alright. Everything's so even. I mean again. A lot of teachers told me this always look at the dumbest kid in the class. If he's getting it then you've explained it. Well then you've done your job if it's getting through to him so even mayor de Blasio says it's time to reopen He's watched Connecticut have done a pretty good job now. Of course you gotta wait and see if there's any spike in a couple of weeks but Florida Georgia Texas all the places that reopened despite we hear on fake news. There's no spikes anywhere. Everything's fine numbers are dramatically down in New York so the mayor is talking about June fifteenth for phase one reopening now phase one B Stores do all stores can open a new curbside Phase to should follow very fast. Maybe a week or so and then They'll allow you to go into the stores and I they're talking about. Possibly moving phase went up to June first and face to June fifteenth. So this could happen very fast if the numbers keep dropping so even even mayor de Blasios gets it so now you notice governor Cuomo. There's no hope of ever everything will be reopened. Even if he doesn't reopen we're reopening without you. We don't need you know. This is the mayor to block roads. Leading to the first half of June the city indicators the state indicators. We're seeing very clear progress. We have to sustain the progress. Now Joe Bartlett. What is wrong with him? You normally especially in real life. He's of He's kind of a fun jovial guy with a good personality. Yeah semen real life. He's a nice guy. He jokes around kids around with you. he's got a very easy going way about him he used to be not it wasn't Churchill but he was a pretty good speaker. You had a nice personality. Why does he say he sounds so frightened all the time? Now listen to this. He's giving good news and he sounds terrified. This is like a hostage video. All roads. Leading to the first half of June the city indicators state indicator what does it sounded. Oh well gotta think he's worried about what's going to be left of this city when he does decide to reopen it it's going to be it's a shambles. Yeah it's a disaster. Now he can put together all these commissions of how to reopen any through on the commissions a lot of Richard Ravitch type guys. You know very experienced Serious business people and I I'm sure these guys have been telling them you've destroyed everything that you totally destroyed the city. You GotTa stop this start reopening so You know you all these stores that are open. All the supermarkets are open. Hundreds of people only supermarkets every day. Nobody's getting sick in there. So why can't you open all the stores? Even the mom and pop stores clothing stores of you know whatever kind of stores I mean. Understand no makeup counter where they're GONNA put their hands on your face but start opening up So June fifteenth is The date the looking at figure June I. I think this is going to go faster than you think and again. They may try that thing when they do. The restaurants closed some of the streets and spread the tables out. You know when you're into like these Connecticut Restaurant. Some of them are real hot spots. So they've spread. The tables outs is a few feet between you and every table and when you go in and look at them you helping you do this before. This is the way you're supposed to. You know when you go to New York City restaurant you're on top of everybody Katie idea eating a meal in the middle of third avenues. It's just not appealing to me. Well but They do have outdoor tables illegals and all those places have outdoor tables in the Middle Street. well street all right now. Here's the other problem Even if you've ever sat I listen if you're at the Americana and you're eating cipollini outside it's beautiful. It's the grass. But whenever you eat outside mellows or anyone those places Madison Avenue. All that happens is four homeless guys. Come right up to your table and those is tripping all of your food buses. The exhaust fumes are going all over your system. It's not the greatest experience so well we'll we'll we'll Keep an eye on this situation. I think you're GonNa have some good news when we come back on Tuesday after Memorial Day weekend about New York City reopening. You see a big drop this weekend in numbers. Hey the president went to the Ford Motor Company. He had them convert the factory. To turn out ventilators they have been turning out tens of thousands of ventilators. I know what you're saying. You're saying how do we need these ventilators for we don't but this This cuomo this crazy Cuomo remember. He was yelling. Forty thousand ventilators. It was yelling this so much that he turned the president went nuts turning these factories into ventilator producers we now have hundreds of thousands of ventilators were stockpiling. I guess the what we'll do we'll just stockpile them if there's ever another Situation like this. We'll have them in a warehouse somewhere for years. But they're totally unnecessary so the president went to thank them. inspect factory. The subject was ventilators. And of course when he got there every question from the press wearing a mask. Where's your mask? How come you're not wearing a mask? I'm watching this you ever watch his dopey Lori stokes. She's on in the morning on TV. She show and she's so disgusted by him and she said he's not wearing a mask not wearing a mask. She's sitting in the studio with a lot of people not wearing a mask showing a clip of call wearing a mask showing clips of the Blasios. Not Worrying about never says a word about them so it's just a game. It's just a stupid game. They did ask him Why he didn't wear a mask what he did. Say something about ready to the choice.

"I think that because I play characters as an entertainer separates the artist or the art from the artist. And I feel like people can can can I don't know they don't get hung up on my beliefs they don't get hung up on my personal. They just see the characters and I I kinda like that they. Yeah I think a lot of other entertainers detainers. Not that. It's better or worse but most other entertainers are themselves on the Internet. And so if they say something the audience doesn't like then there's a legitimate person to be upset about now you know as whereas if a character does something terrible it's all that's a character And I don't think I'm a bad person I think I'm trying I'm not trying to hide who I am or anything but I love just kind kind of being a mystery to you know to most people I like when someone comes up to me. They don't know if I'm going to be nicer. They're kind of a little bit scared to talk to me because I don't know if I'm crazy and I kind of like having that are around me. I'm always curious because there are so many people who are trying to get where you are Mar.. If you run across in your dating lighter even just in your social life people who are sort of you know getting close to you you and you can kind of sniff that they have ulterior motive. I think it's pretty obvious. I mean it smells pretty punch out. There's never been anyone rambling Um they might have ulterior. It's definitely cut off. It's definitely toyed with my trust But I've I've made a lot of friends who are around. My you know following of our size of creator and I talk with you. Know we go to each other's houses and we smoke weed and we kick back and shoot the shit and we talk about this kind of and it's like I i. I'm not the only one who's going through it. I'm not the only one who like a lot of other. People are even possibly have had it worse than me or more defensive about rightfully. So you know. I've heard a lot of horror stories from other creators about like being tricked by someone that they were on a date with or being tricked by whatever someone they were hanging out with. Well I think just I just go with my gut with everyone I meet and I don't really an inch I I really am introverted with like I rarely ever bring anyone you know. have anyone over on this. I know them I rarely ever like hang out one on one with someone they really know them I so so for someone to be able to take advantage of. It hasn't happened yet that I know of on knock on wood. But I don't know I think I have a pretty good grasp on who's good and WHO's bad. Most people are good. I've found out like most people I've met in the last three years. I can't knock on wood. I've just been angels so especially if people outside of California picture. What do you look for dating? Weiss honored anyways tight. Oh let me tell you the faces a very important thing I think like a face. Well I I like the face but also like well when it comes to personality. I think they have to be very smart. Because I like someone who understands re or who can pick up on really subtle sarcasm or really dry humor and I think that the ability to do that I think I think a sense of humor is a brilliant test of intelligence or at least their social intelligence and and just their appreciation for word play. I think someone who can appreciate good. A good conversation likes to laugh and likes to poke fun a Yeah like if they're not making me laugh what the why. They must have sweet ass. Because if I'm not laughing there's gotta be some other redeeming quality and most the people of data just don't make me laugh but Yeah I look for. I am just a face because I think more that is I'm I'm not talking about physically when I'm when I'm on a date with someone you could tell a lot by there is what they're saying there is and You know some people I just had dead is and I just get real limb when I see that I'm just like Oh like are you even and then some people have crazy is and they're you know they're so yeah. I think the is not so so much the face but the eyes and just funny can't or can they at least appreciate humor. Yeah but really. What I'm saying is laugh at my jokes? Very important Shaw no I I. I'm pretty open. Even when I was in India I was flirting. Yeah I was and I did meet a guy. And here's some tea and I've only I've only never told anyone yet but I sneezed in front of.

"I am Gay was still part of me still I still Kinda like women is still do. I would say that I'm definitely more intimate but I still like women and there was a time in my life. I did only like women like when I was a kid. I remember like I would only checkout girls and then eventually it through puberty maybe it was. I signed one developing I was like oh I like like guys more. I don't I don't know what switched for me. But it was around puberty and so the first person actually confirmed it to my fruit fly. Is that offensive fag. I don't know what they say now but she was my best friend and I told her and that was the first time I ever felt because I lived in livermore which is very small. It's a very at the time. At least it was very a income. Pretty Conservative and there weren't a lot of people who are out yet and so she was the first person that I openly said it to and to not get the sort of backlash that I very much X.. or or or judgement or disappoint disappointment I think is the right word. I was afraid of. Disappointing her And I didn't in that felt really good and then I started being more open about it with my friends and that felt really good and then I started getting what people talk about movies like a weight off your shoulders because it is when you're when you're pretending to be straight it's a little a little bit of a lie you're telling every single time you pretend the checkout girl or every single time someone says oh you need a girlfriend and you don't you don't negate them you know it's like it's like it's a little little bit of stress that kind of flickers through your brain. It's just like a and it's one less thing I I don't have to lie about anywhere but I never really came out to my family because after I moved move to. La Youtube Channel took off. It's like there's no way they don't know that I'm gay and there's no way that like now at this point it's like a talk would be kind of awkward uh-huh brought a guy home. No because every time I dated a guy either it wasn't during the holidays or I was at their family for Thanksgiving. Actually no one one year idea bringing home a one year And that was like it was it was weird. 'cause I knew that my family and never seen that before like I'm the only person that I know of my family who is queer and so I knew they weren't used to seeing some like part of me was like all right. Just look as much like if you're just my guy friend coming over as we can but then I'm like like do I care that much about these people's opinions that like let's just suck each other's dicks. I don't know I I honestly I just want. I didn't know how to touted. I mean it wasn't super awkward. It just felt weird with see like my grandparents looking over Makram who has dementia Manchester just like having to be reminded. Oh He's gay. Oh that's Oh but a I don't know but I see my family pretty much like once a year now at same about I think in during the Thanksgiving Christmas this year is probably Thanksgiving. You know I don't know if I'll be there for Christmas but but yeah so and I'm not with anyone else so this is another year. I'm not bringing someone someone over but It is cool though it is cool visiting family you know now. Even though I don't I I visit them with the career that they all follow that that's diff- you know. Even though I'm not with anyone they still have a bucket of questions every time I visit home because they watch all my videos they follow my instagram. I mean they're very in touch with what I'm doing and that's why that's why it's like. I almost don't want to have the conversation. I know if this cool with what I'm doing and then following me this closely. They clearly know that I'm gay. And they clearly are still accepting so he was like no conversation needed to be had and I feel like it's almost less awkward to just. Okay let's move on you know so I didn't really have a coming out. That story just stopped and then I just stopped denying you know at least to my family and everyone else. It's like if you can't tell you know some people I have. I just I cannot tell and and I have to say it but I think most people know. I think I don't know maybe earlier this and maybe they'll hear this. I think he might be but Yeah do they all understand your career. I mean especially like the old older members of your family people who are sort of cree Internet they they do because a lot of them have kids a lot of them have kids now. The it's weird because I in my family. There's no one really my age. There's people who are a generation above me me in a generation who and then who had generation below me so that generation below me which Z.. Right yes he And then generation X. who's them above above me They know about the kids and the kids It's weird 'cause they only know me as as who I am on Youtube. They really don't know who I am in real life because I've lived in La for about seven years and a lot of them are around seven or older. But not old enough to remember genuinely who I was as a human being when I lived there so when I visit home I'll see in my cousins. Is there a little shy. Or they're a little bit. It's the same. Look I see when I when I have a meet and greet and people okay. Oh Hey you're next you know for the picture an autograph you know. It's like right when they're kind of during the headline that's sort of how my cousins look at me and it's weird because it's a weird way of spending time with his family and I it's it's It's like this. Is My family like chill out. I'm just here to eat but There yeah none of my family. Has There's been a dick about what I do. Thank God they're pretty comical people on both sides there. There are a lot of comedians that I grew up with so thank God. What are your dealings with like commenters and and fans like they can be vicious? Actually they've been ver- I've been really lucky If there's any criticism and I really I very rarely troll criticism which is at fake and gay dumb fucking fuck. This guy is very rarely. Do I see that Mo- if there's any criticism constructive like I could tell you use this ending before or I can tell you and that kind of Shit I live for because it's like you know you're right you're smart audience like you know but they don't it's not mean it's people if they're if they're criticizing it's because they were disappointed because they expected something that they didn't get or that or they. They were rooting for the video and some part of it. Let them down. And and that's the kind of criticism I get for the most part Ev. You know the Internet just like I said with the Youtube community. The Internet is been much more welcome and I work with kind kind of a freak show of people. My cast is very They're interesting each of them are interesting in appearance and in in how they conduct doc themselves and I feel like I run this little circus of interesting actors and every time I introduce a new person sometimes they might be heavy or trans or you. You know what a you know. They're they're you know I'm always a little afraid of what the comments are going to say. The first time I work with an actor I add them to my cast. And I'm like what are people going to think of him him or her or them and they've all been welcoming you know they've all been really really accepting and I. I'm very touched by how the Internet you know. It's like one of one of the actors I work with the most. She's a seventy something year old trans woman and she is in my opinion. One of the greatest actors I've ever worked with And she's one of the most brilliant people but when I when I had her in the videos for the first time I didn't know how the end that was gonNA reactor and she's reading my comments you know. And so it's like part of me feels it's like a you know a little bit like these are my kids in a way and I'm very protective of what people say about them. Because I know they're reading the comments and I didn't have to delete anything with her like I'm looking at the comments and like who is this interesting woman. And where did she come from. And why nothing was negative and to this day. They adore her and the other people I work with. I work with in all kinds of you know. Ages shapes genders cast is a very very colorful group of people and no one has ever picked on anyone one for any kind of so. I think the Internet at least the people who watch my videos. They're not the Internet that I thought I would encounter when I would blow up you. You know like why always thought. Oh thank God. I'm still a small youtuber because if I was big I don't know if I could take the criticism on the new. I Made Weird content. I'm like I don't know how the world would react. I've been surprised at how the world's reacted to it and so Negative comments yeah. They just don't wouldn't you attribute that to because it seems like that's the only place on the Internet. Well uh-huh doing something right. I think that the content doesn't take itself seriously at all it's very self deprecating. It's very like it's it's self-aware trash and and it's it's not. There's there's zero pride with it. It's all just like just utter. It's like like like going to the circus. You go to kind kind of be a little bit disgusted or scared or you know when you see people swallowing swords and I think that people go to my channel at this point. People know what they're into and they when they usually really when they click on a video of mine or and I I don't know I think that with content as vulgar as it's almost how do you call trash disgusting. You know like how do do you call. I don't know I I've just been very very very fortunate. I also enjoy like I rarely. I rarely come out as a human being out of character actor. You know other than time like this. You know a podcast interview or an appearance cameo in something but very rarely in my ever expressing my own on opinions beliefs and.
