I got laid off from a doctor's office back in March, obviously due to Cove it so I was home and lucky enough to get unemployment. Uh, what's called backto work in June was told that we have new front death Corona virus guidelines. I had no problem with that at all. I wanted to be safe to come back to work. I signed the paperwork. It's a very, very small office. I said approximately 2 to 3 ft. Away from my other coworker. What told we have to wear a mask all day long, get backto work. Then was told by the doctor. If there are no patients here in the office, you don't have to wear your mask. So that's what I'm dealing with. I either keep my job and try to keep myself safe. And where my mask while I'm around the doctor who doesn't wanna wear mine when there's no patient. Or my other co workers who just feel free to take him offices. The patients walk out the door. Well, you can leave your They're not going to penalize you for wearing a mask. Are they correct? But you know, every report that you hear You wear your mask and your protecting other people from what you have they protect you by wearing their mask, so I'm not quite sure you know if I can choose not to go home back to work, But I won't be able to collect unemployment. Because really, I'm quitting. Then you're quitting your job, right? And it's just not fair. You know, it's I'm I'm not sure what the law says about that, to be honest with you. Are you clear on that Janet seems to me like if you have a physical or even, you know, mental emotional reason for not wanting to work because of Covad. The you that you do qualify for unemployment. But I know I'm not even then my daughter works at a grocery store and I can tell you every day she deals with this. She wears the mask. She has been told by the union. We can't do anything. You know, You really don't want someone confronting someone saying, Hey, where's your mask?.

Trump will not visit Capitol to pay respects to civil rights icon John Lewis
"The world said goodbye to a civil rights icon in our nation's Capitol today and elsewhere, representative John Lewis honored in ceremonies at the Capitol. Talk about how that's impacting people where you are and what you saw, but it's hard to underestimate His impact on the civil rights leader. He was literally one of think a gang of six lieutenants under Martin Luther King back in the sixties, and at the time I think he may have been 25 26 years old Martin Luther King was only in his early thirties. When he gave his I have a dream speech, and we forget, you know, there's such towering figures were way think that they were much older than they were. And John Lewis died at 80 has had this incredibly long career. Hey, was beaten to within an inch of his life defending their right to vote and equal rights. For African Americans. This man is a hero. His bravery is is just breathtaking. One comment. I read from a colleague of his today and I was really taken with, she said. It was during the time of the hippies when John Lewis forever wore a three piece suit and carried a briefcase because he wanted to be taken seriously and thought to be ah, involved with important stuff. And you don't see that much anymore. And not only that, but hey also recalled that when he was arrested for civil disobedience, certainly not violence, but simply Protesting and using his first Amendment right to speak up. He always smile for the mug shot because he goes, I didn't do anything wrong. Why should I be doing anything about smiling here truly one of a kind of the benefit of all Americans then and now you go ahead and what's astonishing is that President Trump once again? Is not doing anything to pay his respects to this American icon. Hey, was asked, the president was asked if he was going to go up to the capital to pay respects to John Lewis, who was lying in state. They're one of I think only three African Americans to ever do that Rosa Parks. And Ah, uh, Thurgood Marshall. I think you were the other two. And he the president goes. No, I'm not going to no explanation. No comments about John Lewis. And, of course, he and John Lewis. We're not B f F S. John Lewis famously did not show up to the President's in all your old saying that he thought he was an illegitimate president. That he thought that he or at least the Russians did everything they could to get him elected and that it wasn't a legitimate presidency. He was going to attend the inaugural A good opportunity if nothing else, and this is a crass way to look at it to score some points. And we're all taught from a very early age. We show respect for those who have passed on it. It seems like an easy opportunity for the president take advantage of well. The president has not done that. For many leaders who died over the last couple years. John McCain, notably He did not was not invited to the funeral but didn't even bother to crash He was playing golf at his name escapes me now the congressman from Maryland who died another African American civil rights leader. Also had clashes with the president. He did not show up for that, then think I think the only major funeral that President Trump has shown up for was George H. W. Bush.
Body of John Lewis crosses bridge in Alabama, site of 'Bloody Sunday' attack that helped lead to Voting Rights Act

"rosa parks" Discussed on C-SPAN Radio
"I not really seen Rosa Parks as a threat more so innocent right I mean I think if she was wearing like a Black Panther uniform at the rate that would be a completely different story enforcer skin complexion I think has somebody with it he doesn't look like the trip possibly the traditional you know but yeah I mean I I don't think she was seen as much of a threat to super incident in that case yeah I mean there's definitely evidence again park says this herself right I mean when she's arrested eating Nixon is like yeah right he's like this is one she's the one right in the all gather at our house to convince her of that and who's against it her husband because he's not an idiot he knows how dangerous places yeah using that on violence in the Nixon kind of fortune article made her kind of the figure of the civil rights movement that's been propagated since then that's a great question I don't think Robinson did I think parts of it and I think Nixon did Robinson was angry she was really angry when they backed off of cold front right and Coleman was a student was a was a young girl that parks had worked with because parts was in charge of the NWP use active right so they had a relationship in that sense so when they backed off a cold and she was really upset because the gear article tells you you're waiting you know Robinson has been you know fighting this fight for a decade right and when the the one this is in the brown decision comes out and she writes four days later she writes to the mayor like you know just reminding you African Americans make up seventy five percent of the writers and if we were to actually boycott that would be really bad for the bus company right I mean that's a threat right to that degree to which you can do it so I don't think that you I don't think we can take that on Robinson so much I think we can take it on gender politics of the time and certainly then also politics of color because it's not incidental that she's a light skinned woman she's chosen all these things lead allow for this idea of middle class respectability they all lead for a lot FOR idea middle class with Billy despite the fact that Rosa Parks is absolutely of the working class you know and arguably of the working poor she doesn't have that veneer right so that's part of it and she doesn't she has it she does not have a demeanor that radical she has a radical activists passed but she doesn't have a demeanor that is radical so there's definitely image politics going on here and we can decide whether or not we fault them for that or that they're looking at the reality of their situation we've talked in here about the trap of getting into an image politics game right and so one of the things we can scan centres what are the effects of Rosa Parks have been having been the symbol right because I think that goes back to Morgan's point of light who is worthy of justice right we talked about that with maybe two Bradley as well another thing that I want to do just keep in mind is that you know the question often comes up why women why was it primarily women and was primarily women who are doing this and all you need to know is Emmett till right that's I mean that I mean there's a bigger history to that to do the same type of resistance you're seeing these women get beaten right to do the same time type of resistance as an African American man would have been even riskier right even riskier also African American men were riding the buses as much if there was a car in the family in after the man would be taking it to his job it was with women who were on the bus also because they were domestics right so they were on the bus integrator a greater capacity and often with white people those lines are kind of blurred because they might go to the grocery shopping with the children of their white employer and in that capacity they set up front right they sat up front because that white baby wasn't going in the back right so there's a little bit more blurring of the lines there and their stories of American men often if the stuff would start on a bus with an African American woman they just get up and go out the back door and it suffered psychically for that right and we're criticized for if they just get up go out the back door because that's they understood how loaded that situation was so I also want to go to the next idea of this movement being unprecedented and spontaneous and I want to try and trouble that or just what if you did bring the Greer on American history once you spend radio from Wellesley College right there's examples with in Alabama that refute that idea there's a boycott in nineteen hundred R. nineteen hundred of the trolleys and buses at this point talk of the trolleys that lasts about two years it's not as total as the Montgomery bus boycott is the Montgomery bus boycott is ninety five percent successful among African Americans and and you know what is right is the seventy five percent of your clientele is African American and the ninety five percent of them stay off the buses I mean this crippled the bus company they keep raising fares they were very much on the on on the brink of financial ruin and yet time after time after time again they refused to segregate buses that's important to you know to think about to understand so Montgomery blacks have a boycott of the buses in nineteen forty one around Easter holiday event that happened and they said that they often like bust out but then dropped far away and had to walk in the rain and everything so they boycotted the buses that was just a very short event and then in baton Rouge in nineteen fifty three there was a bus boycott the people in Montgomery very much took information from right and so that's when I say if you own a bus boycott narrative that's as simple as the one that we have you can't do what people in Montgomery did in terms of the baton Rouge boycott where they took information and they learn from that organizer awake at and then this idea of it being spontaneous right I think Carol successfully hi deconstructs that idea and you look at when the girl article was written in nineteen eighty five so when you ask you how many of you have a more complex idea about Rosa Parks or the Montgomery bus boycott and you're telling me in the year two thousand twenty but it's still coming down this way that's problems we've had this information now for a long time you know people educators we've had this information for a long time right in the women's political council just blows that out of the water that idea that is entertaining is that they decided at the last moment we know from Guero that there was a plan in place right at least a loose plan that Robinson was just waiting and that there'd been many many meetings between that the W. P. C. and city authorities to address the segregated seating with all these half measures you know like let us come in the front door you know at least you know have more black bus drivers doesn't even necessarily have to be that you know it's an integrated bus at this point but it's no no no to all of those things right so the question that I have then is why didn't we know anything about the women's political council Intel nineteen eighty five and then why don't you know anything about her right why do you think we don't know anything about her or anything about the women's political council this far what is that can do the math for thirty five years later we think accounts for that.

Interview With Jeffrey Howard On The Coronavirus Situation In the United STates
"Joining me to discuss the latest twist and turn stateside is the political philosopher and US politics expert at UC L. A Good Friend of Monaco Twenty Four Geoffrey Howard Jeffrey. Good morning to you. You're listening to that. I was quite striking. Some of Ed had to say it's been tracking obviously trump's presses in this kind of thing this idea that he's oscillating between attack mode and a more conciliatory tone on the latter. It's not something that he does particularly. Well it people. We're talking just a couple of weeks ago that we're seeing a new tone from the president on this topic and people wondered whether this was a a moment of pivoting to a more conciliatory manner may be one. That would be bipartisan. That would engage people on both sides of the Aisle. A but every time people think that that's happening We're disappointed within hours. And the president reverts to really what his is natural tendency which is to be compatible. Cabada to be extremely defensive into interpret any attempts to have a thoughtful inquiry about the best next steps regarding this price process as a criticism of his administration. Well to that point and then Jeffrey do you go along with this reading. Because perhaps of essentially a lack of national strategy on this trump is happy to play this. Blame game you know. He's got governors Left and right. Oh it must be said in his in his crosshairs. Is that what? He's decided his way to deflect that. Scrutiny that you mentioned that is to simply turntables on a on governors and of course the regions and say you know. These are the people who are letting the nation down. There's no doubt that his intention is to declare victory and then point whatever bad fallout transpires. And of course they're always been already been thousands dead point two governors and say it was their fault. I think that's clearly. His strategy take responsibility for the good stuff for the progress. That's been made and place responsibility for all the bad stuff on the governor's and we're already seeing him. Turning this debate into a kind of culture war. Such that one's position on the lockdown Will be a matter of partisan affiliation so It was so striking Lake Friday that he tweeted out. Liberate Minnesota Liberate Michigan Liberate Virginia What's he talking about? So He's essentially encouraging the public to disobey State Public Health Advisories and stay at home orders. Many of which his own administration Encouraged the creation of and. I think it's important to remember here in the context of the battle against Corona virus. That it it's not about you when the government tells you to stay home of it's not about restricting your freedom in order to make your life go worse. It's about the moral obligation. All of us have not to endanger one another by spreading the transmission of the virus and thereby risking infecting others and therefore risking the overwhelming of hospitals and the fact that he couches it in terms of liberation That he couches this requirement that people look out for one another in the community is tantamount to oppression is is so striking. I think one of the worst things I saw in the last few days is a quote by Stephen Moore. Who's of one of the White House advisers to trump on corona virus new called the protesters quote? Modern Day Rosa Parks. They're protesting against injustice at a loss of liberties and quote. Rosa parks being famous civil rights activists of the African American woman. Who In nineteen fifty five famously sat at the front of the the busted. The whites only section. Right it's just absurd to be calling people who are literally endangered one another Tantamount to Rosa parks. But that's where we're at. That's where I'm struggling through the process. That comparison in my mind Jeffrey. Let's move on just in terms of I mentioned rounded up this show. It's hard to see that trump has anything other than the general election later this year In his personal crosshairs. And you can see how this fits his old narrative his this this rabble-rousing citing the second amendment in tweets. And this stuff you said about oppression and liberation again designed to play too and I use the quote marks his base. Do we know how both his really hard coal committed supporters Following him suggestions are that his poll ratings are are off amongst that demographic but with anyone who may be I don't know if flip-flopping little or or or or open to possibly voting Democrat in the Autumn House this actually playing this narrative especially this crazy new authoritarianism. I guess you'd call it. I mean what's striking about these? These protests does that. They're certainly attempting to appear. Grass roots. There certainly the kinds of scrappy movements of people that suggests that it was a a bunch of people on who just decided to get up and go out in protest. But if we've learned that's not quite true. We know that. For example the Michigan protests were explicitly funded by organizations like the Michigan Conservative coalition. The Michigan Freedom Fund of quite striking that the Michigan Conservative coalition also goes by the name the Michigan Trump Republicans according to the Washington Post. So it looks like this is not really grassroots. It's what we would instead. Call ask her turf. Fake grass roots at a concerted attempt by powerful interests to make. It seem like the people are rising up. And I think it's a difficult question because generally speaking we're having widespread compliance would stay at home. Orders were not having tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of people out in the streets protesting relatively speaking. The protests are somewhat small but online. They have a very large presence on facebook. They have a very large presence. And I think already we're seeing the president. You Use Corona virus as a way to whip up agitation against mostly Democratic governor so in Michigan for example. The governor is Gretchen Whitmer. Who's a democrat? Who's been named as a potential potential vice presidential pick for Joe Biden? A very popular Democratic Governor Michigan and she has absolutely in trump's crosshairs in terms of his rhetoric and he's very much Trying to lower her public opinion in the state and lower the public opinion of other democratic governors around the country. And I think it's not that trump oscillates between a mood where he's thinking about how we genuinely solve this public health crisis and then shifts to the political register to think about how the politics plays out. He's I think always in the political register he's always thinking about how this impacts his popularity how it impacts his electoral prospects in November November twenty twenty and it seems all decisions are being made in light of that well given that then Jeffrey. What are the prospects to the US? It's interesting if you track the data points this weekend. It just seems they've kind of another grim allstone North of forty thousand deaths. Which is I think over. A quarter of the global total Three quarters of a million infections which I think is more than a third of the global total feels out of control with his focus so unrelenting unrelentingly on domestic political maneuverings is there a risk that the US doesn't develop a coherent strategy in the weeks. Ahead I mean. There isn't a coherent strategy even now so the president has outlined a three step phased reopening of the economy that he's encouraging governors to to pursue a book. Governors are very insistent that you have to link the reopening of the economy with testing. And we know that there have been considerable. Shortages of testing kits considerable shortages of supplies of the governors have been complaining about this. We know that that particular issue has been a disaster where states have been trying to bid against one another. They've been trying to bid against various government agencies rather than having a unified federal response. And because of that. I think it's going to push the reopening later and later now I think what seems likely is that trump is going to say. We need to do this. We need to move forward and states with trump loyalists as governors will move. We already saw beaches reopening in Florida. Just this past weekend now. It looked like people were practising reasonably good social distancing on those beaches but the point remains that if trump says let's reopen. Let's do it now. A lot of Republican states are GonNa follow suit and then you might have a really terrible situation where you have states that favor the president in greater peril than states that don't favor the president and I think it's just a very sad state of affairs that you have people who like the president who were essentially being lied to by the President about what's in their own Public Health interest in. What's actually going to protect people in their communities. Jeffrey is Great. Salt with you as always. That was our friend. Geoffrey

A bunch of the nominees have hit the carpet many times before. So we're GONNA TAKE A walk down. Memory Lane presented by. At and T. So I if we have Shirley's there so this is her third time being nominated for best actress. Her fashion always keeps us on our toes. She's been very edgy. This year which which she has edgy looks in her past but this year she's really stepped it up. So what do you guys think she's going to wear this year I think she'll be more whimsical at this one. A lot more feminine than we've seen her and I think it's Charlie's is one of those women who likes to give you something give you something and then flip the switch on you at the last minute. Look at all of these dresses. They all kind of look like they're from the same family right. They're all very similar. They have similar silhouette legacy. It's not like they're not all day or I don't think so but maybe they are but I just feel like she kind of stays within this sort of world. I think it's going to be something like this but I do think it's going to be a color. Yeah I think no matter. What because like even with all of those two. There's still something edgy. She adds to every look even if. It's super glamorous and beautiful there's something about it gives her that. Charlene touch her. She's such a statuesque beautiful woman. Give me a break. So she can basically wear anything. But I think it's going to be wondering neckline color can scarlett. Johansson is up next She against her lease in the same Supporting actress category. So she's been showing some skin on the carpets lately. Do you think he's going to continue to do that? She has had her best year. This past I was just GonNa say the green is my favorite I This red carpet season for scarlet. She has really turned out. Every look has been so beautiful. She's looked so gorgeous but hot and young and vibrant. I think I I'm really excited to see what she's going to wear. I think she's GonNa blow us away. I think she might be best dressed. You know what not GonNa miss a beat there. What I think you might be right because the lead up has been so good and that's always but that's also sometimes that's when the disappointment happens because when there's not so much pressure you just have great options and then we really have to bring it. You're like wait. I don't know what dress to wear. I think she might do something a little bit different. Okay I wouldn't be mad about then Margot Robbie our fifth time at the Academy Awards. She's always seems to be on everyone's best dressed list. So what kind of thing do you think she's going to wear? I? It's GonNa add obviously be a moment. I think Margot Robbie has been throwing us off because she's been so cool and casual on the carpet this whole time that there must be something big that she is saving for us. And I know it's going to be really. I know it's going to be released. Go big big like big skirts or anything like that. You think she'll do something like that does not putting that out right now. Chanels more structured chanels more leg flower child to peace moments one of these days. I do WanNa see her like a big skirt. This sendo.

And we're showing support for the American Heart Association's Go red for women movement all right. Let's talk more about the Oscars. We have Joaquin Brad Rene and Laura Dern. They've been basically winning an all. The major categories at every award. Show this season however. Which category do you think is most likely to defy expectations the big snub on Sunday? So want to say I don't want to say but it's going to be Brad Pitt. I don't like that but I also think the academy might think of the scope of work. How long he's been in this industry. How much good work? He's put out for us. I don't know they might give it to him. I really hope they do because the chances of him. Winning another Oscar is just you know I think when people are so super successful and so famous I feel like the academy doesn't want them as much because I feel like they think they don't deserve it because they become sort of tabloid fodder but he's talented. We have loved him for a million years. Give Him an. But we know it's not walkie. Oh my gosh joker was basically. He's GonNa get our monologue. So amazing Rene Rene Getting Rene as getting it I know or a dern I mean she might not yet know larger Laura dern kisses all the baby on fan six all the hands and she also out acted everybody in that movie. It's going to be Brad Pitt because unfortunately Brad Pitt didn't have the body of work that he'd Pacino Though Pacino. Eighty years old he listen. I think Brad is GonNa win. I'm going to hope that Brad Woods playing this game of a hypothetical situation out of those four. I don't like it. We're putting out that energy.

I mean just watching him as a kid like a lot of us grew up with him on to and to be in a movie with Jim Carey like a hero. Yeah what was that like? It's such a hero. I look up to him.

He's incredibly kind and he's everything here you your hero would wanna be like they say. Don't meet your heroes Bassett here. You WanNa meet at Sci.

"A Tuesday like this whole legendary thing and it's like Oh my God we can't believe and then I always tell people I always tell publicists. Just wait something else is going on right. And they're gonNA come out if she just would have waited and let the Nicki Minaj Song. Come out and also led the Gayle King thing come out the CBS situation. Nobody would even talking about this today. No but in reality it's her truth. I think it would have kept coming up because people were upset that she was a part of this show. That also isn't right because she obviously is somebody who has a she's relevant. She's going to bring light to something that a lot of people don't that's now that's why they are choosing these people right. They want to have these stories be made and they want to put people in place of or in charge of that so that there's light shed on it is also there's a madness method behind the madness. Listen Rise in twelve years of slave came out in twenty fourteen and they were like Brad Pitt to star in Twelve Years Asleep. And then you watched it. And you're like wait. Hold on there was only like you had two lines in twelve years a slave but it got people to watch that movie yes even but made Lupita the younger who she is. Today it puts Utah on the map. All these people knew. Okay we're just GONNA attach to this because Brad Pitt will bring to the audience. So it's that situation ultimately right you want these stories to be told it's just how it works. You know. Yeah all right up next Kim K. W. says her son Song is her dad reincarnated. Do you believe it we'll discuss. We were in Bali and a woman a blind medium came up to me and said that I was going to have another son and it was going to be my father reincarnated and she had no idea that my no one knew not not no one on my crew. No one knew that I had a surrogate that was pregnant with a boy so my whole family. All the time thinks it's my dad. Kim also mentioned that this also happened another time when her nanny took some to a baby shower on a woman who did not know who they were so that Saddam was a reincarnation of a family member on his mom's side so she's heard this now from a couple of different people. That's crazy. Do you believe it I do. I feel like when I read this yesterday. And I looked at SOM- I feel like I've obviously seen photos of some but not the I mean. Maybe I just didn't look at him with as much intensity as I did. He looks so much like her dad. Yeah don't you think so now? She's is or eyebrows like they really do. Look so similar so I do believe in that. I believe that that can happen. I believe coordination. I've had reincarnation with dogs. Yeah Yeah every time I've ever lost a dog. A new one has come in right away. It's true swear the same dog again. No I know you're talks. He sees the Milan to see. You can talk to your dog so you feel like they have exact same personality as the previous dog. That's and it always happens. It's always I always as one is passing away. One comes in. I got one. Yeah I I don't know that. I believe in reincarnation but I haven't really fully thought about it but if I if I had a bunch of people telling me that chase was my grandfather or something like that I would find peace. I would find that peaceful and cute and I wouldn't creeped me out at all. I would like that creepy of a grandfather. Just watching you the whole time. Ristic's down. It's that's really what it is. Yeah I mean wouldn't let me out of your baby you can't. You can't get grouped baby. I believe in reincarnation because I believe in past lives. There are times where I meet people and I know for a fact they we were. We have unfinished business from time before and I can feel that in my soul like Tom and I have so much unfinished business and I don't know why lovers in it last year when lovers definitely a time where things. We're not yeah. I think we're not working out in. That's why there's tensions here for sure. This is where I really do. Believe that Gary Gary Gary and they have a nice relationship yeah there. It's like an of present. This is your first life together. Yeah you definitely smothered me an eighteen sixty four something off a train to like you know like go with the Indians like lever about. Yeah Oh man it'll be with Marilyn. Yeah thank you okay. Okay we ask. You are you to pull. If you believe in reincarnation. Fifty eight percent of you said No. I don't I can't believe that's happening from our audience would believe aright well unless we bonded Nicki Menaj. Yikes is right. Because Nicki Menaj is catching some major heat for some of the lyrics and her new song that dropped just today but guess what she doesn't care to the line in question.
Rush Limbaugh's Medal of Freedom from Trump draws backlash
"Backlash to President Trump's decision to award rush limbaugh the Presidential Medal of freedom. You've got to C. N. N.'s. Brian Todd Brian Wolf to say this is controversial is putting it mildly rush. Limbaugh has a huge following one of the reasons for that is that he's so controversial but some members of Congress civil rights leaders and others are simply outraged tonight because of limbaugh long history of divisiveness in dramatic fashion Russia for the first time ever at a state of the Union address a president awards the Presidential Medal of freedom rush limbaugh. Thank you for your decades devotion to our for some members of Congress like Cedric Richmond who've worked for years to bridge racial divides the award of the nation's highest. I civilian honor to radio. Host Rush. Limbaugh in their chamber was a Gut Punch. This would just be one bad time in America's history where we placated in pander to racists and Dan dividers for decades limbaugh's been accused of overt race baiting of appealing to the worst of Americans prejudices often directing his most incendiary remarks toward African Americans. The NFL all too often looks like a game between the blood weapons. President Obama was a frequent target target. Limbaugh playing a provocative song on his show magic and Limbaugh was one of the early proponents of one of the most infamous false attacks on Obama which was heavily promoted by Donald Trump. Rush Limbaugh was at the centre or at least was a contributor to the conspiracy theories about President Obama the specious and harmful argument. That President Obama had not been born in the United States and therefore was an illegitimate president. And what riles Congressman Richmond. Is the company rush. Limbaugh now keeps when you think about the people who have received this awarded as people who bring the people who fight for cause of unity and justice and then we just give it to somebody who has stoked and is a blatant racist limbaugh now shares a medal of freedom with civil rights icons Martin Luther King Junior Muhammad Ali Jackie Robinson and Rosa Parks who President Clinton recognized after bestowing stowing. The award on her at a state of the Union address in the middle of his impeachment limbaugh also drew criticism for comments about women including his remark Mark About Female Georgetown University Student Who Campaign for access to birth control. Does that make her an extra slut right right prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex rush. Limbaugh later apologized. President trump does have the prerogative to give the medal of freedom freedom to whoever he chooses and plenty of other recipients have been controversial. It should also be noted that rush limbaugh has an enormous following and just revealed he has late stage stage lung cancer but historian Tim Noth- tally believes at this moment in this political climate. I think the president has tarnished the award by giving it to a very divisive figure in of reality show moment in the state of the union at a time when this country three desperately needs healing. I asked Congressman Richmond if he'll lodge a protest against the award to limbaugh. We're watching effort to have that award revoked. He said there are too many other other important issues. He has to concentrate on and he doesn't want to give this any more attention. We did ask the White House to respond to the criticism over the limbaugh award. We never heard back from them.

had some problems in Europe as you shouldn't be doing the live stream here well you thing is Patricia Arquette they've but she said I don't know I don't I I hurt I when the story I read so the FBI

victimhood all the same time she took a further than a see we know what's going to happen eventually we predict that it here on the show when you have victims and oppressors eventually the victims will become the oppressors when you keep expanding it as we have seen and then you finally get to a point we got to a see who was a victim of everybody but then we send our kid is taking it one step further she in herself in her own bean has become her own victim and her own oppressor you can't oppressor worsen she's a pressed herself I do wonder what goes I really wonder when I just was talking

him at the Iowa state fair instead when trump didn't say that and then he just went off on and we'll have that audio coming up a little bit later again on the show and walked away from it and then it was a reporter was a columnist for Porter for Breitbart chill Pollock then posted at and then the campaign got back at them and said no here's the text this is the biting campaign and did not have a
