"Ryan Gorman in for the team here as they enjoy their Monday off. Hopefully you're getting to enjoy a long weekend to coming up this hour. We've got some really great guests lined up for you. We'll check in with the weather channel to find out what kind of summer whether we can expect across the country. Plus, I'm gonna talk to former NATO Allied commander, Retired General Wesley Clark. About his new documentary, But first yesterday, we celebrated Independence Day, but there's a lot about that time frame that many people don't know. So let me bring in Kenneth Davis, historian and author of the Don't Know Much About series of books. You can Learn more about book series that don't know much dot com. Kenneth Always appreciate you coming on the show. So what is it that we don't know about independent state? Some facts that maybe sometimes get overlooked? Well, hello, Ryan and a great pleasure to be with you as always, And the first thing we should know is that we should have celebrated two days ago on July 2nd. That, at least, is what John Adams thought back in 17 76 when he wrote his lovely wife, Abigail, a letter saying that July 2nd 17 76 would be a day that went down in history and we celebrate with parades and spectacles and illuminations. Because Congress actually voted for a resolution of independence on July 2nd. And so it was then two days later that they debated and then accepted and adopted Thomas Jefferson's Declaration of Independence, which explained the vote two days earlier. So you know, we could actually turn this into a regular three day holiday from the second through the fourth, but I don't know it seems like with we've been doing a lot of holiday, adding, right, so I don't know about that one. But it's interesting to see how Adam's actually describes how there would be parades and church bells ringing and illuminations by which he meant a kind of fireworks and bonfires from coast to coast. He even said, So it's interesting if you Of course, he was off by two days. Now the fourth of July holiday as we celebrate it today, When did that really start to become a thing? Well, interesting because, of course, people locally new the next day in in Philadelphia, certainly that this document had been passed, and it's quite extraordinary how quickly it got into the American popular imagination. It was a few weeks later that George Washington Has the document read aloud to the Army in New York City. Folks have to remember because we sometimes lose track of our date that the war had actually started a full year before the Revolution, the shooting part of it. April 19th 17 75. The shot heard round the world. Washington had gone to Boston, Cambridge, Massachusetts specifically to take over this kind of ragtag Continental Army in the June of 17 75 by July of 17 76. He had moved that army down to New York because the British had evacuated Boston so the next great battlefield would be in New York City. But while Washington and the British are eyeing each other warily, he has the declaration read to the men and it's cheered. It would. It's really quite interesting how this captured the imagination of the Look from the beginning, And certainly a year later, there were regular celebrations of it. Of course, it did not become a true national holiday until there was a true nation. Well after the establishment of the Constitution in 17 87. I mean, in a sense of a nation and as we know it today, I'm Ryan Gorman joined right now by author and historian Kenneth Davis. So Canada when the founders declared independence and wrote this revolutionary document, did they understand how much it was going potentially change the world? Do they have a sense of that? Yeah, I'm not sure if they they realized that it would change the world. They were certainly very focused on the here and now and let me just There are a couple of things that I think are really important to point out. First of all, they use the word very last words of Jefferson's document. Uh, these men fine and pledged their lives. Their fortunes and their sacred honor to this now, that sounds like pretty poetry and nice words. But they knew they were just literally taking their lives into their hands. By doing this. They were challenging the most powerful man on earth. Essentially at that time, the the king of England and this was an act of for British citizens, which they were at the time. This was an act of essentially of treason. And you know if they have been Caught and captured. They might have been strung up on the spot, or maybe taken back to London for some show trial. So we shouldn't you know, under cut or underestimate the risks that they were taking? This was a very bold step. Um, they certainly realized how important it was to America. I don't think that they saw the that this would ripple out around the world for centuries to come. Perhaps although Adam's talks about it that this would be a day that would go to Down in history. The other thing that's really important to understand about the declaration, and it's especially important right now, as we're talking about this whole question of how we teach American history and what aspects of American history we should focus on that 40 of the 56 men who signed that document where slaveholders themselves or involved in the slave trade We cannot separate the history of slavery from the history of independence and from the history of this country. That's just a matter of historical fact. I'm joined by the author of the Don't Know much about series of books historian Kenneth Davis and one final question for you, Kenneth. What are some other aspects or characteristics of the founders? That many of us maybe don't know much about. They were not men who really saw that the great great math of people should have. Too much of a say in this country. I mean, we talk about elitism today. Is that a dirty word? But these were among the most elite men of their time. Um, they were well fed, well wed, well bred and well read, and they you know, were afraid of democracy in its pure sense. That's why when, after 17 76. They come back in 17 87 to write a constitution and they write it very carefully to prevent an excess of democracy, which many of them thought was one step removed from mob rule. So you know, these are the kind of nuances of of our history that we have to take into account. And, of course, 200. Years later, we've moved towards a much broader understanding of democracy ending. Collusion and who should count and whose voices should be heard. But you know, for most of those 200 years, the people who had no vote had to use their voices. Black people fighting for abolition. Women fighting for suffrage young people eventually including myself getting the vote in 1972, which the amendment just past its 50th anniversary. I'm happy to say that I was able to vote in 1972 as an 18 year old and now you know how old I am.

"Radio. Tell you F L A Ryan Gorman in for Jack Harris, with Aaron and Katie. Let's see if you both agree with me that Feels like it's a pretty sure thing. This woman is going to hell for what she did. A Georgia woman allegedly lied about having terminal cancer to swindle people out of thousands of dollars on she even shaved her head is part of the scam. That's not cool. I mean, if you're going to do this game, you have to shave your head. I mean, he went all headed. Is it? Yes. She dead with multiple times. She shaved her head. Would you be surprised if I told you I don't personally know somebody that did this? But my somebody, my family knows someone who did this. Wow. They get money. It wasn't about money was actually about keeping someone in a relationship with them. Oh, my. Oh, my gosh, That's it. I don't know if that's worse, or just a different kind of crazy. And then when he when the person found out that she was lying about the cancer she about a month later came to him and said she was pregnant. And he didn't believe her. She was just crazy. Oh, she really was pregnant. Oh, yeah. Pregnant. I had someone lie about a dead relative, but that's it. You guys run in some crazy circles. I told you it's It's someone else in my family is not my circle its outer circle. It's the outer layer. So this woman, Katie Lynn Shell, or she's a 22 year old mom. She was arrested on suspicion of death. Deception after she collected at least $15,000 and I've got a tweet here that she put out a family of four. I'm fighting stage four cancer while raising two kids, 13 and 17 months old and trying to survive off one income. We need all the help we can get to stay above water. Cry emoji Crime oci crime. Oh, Ji, please, with lots of exclamation points And then a picture of her with her family and a shaved head. Oh, my gosh! Of course. Katie Lynn. Her name has to be my name. Oh, yeah, That's right. I didn't even think about that. Yeah, well, I'm glad her family. A member of her family was the one who stepped up and told authorities about this, that she was using the money to buy marijuana and alcohol, and that's a good family member to realize that this is wrong there, you know, Obviously, they know she's shaving her head and probably figuring out what's happening if they kept on if they knew that information, and they held on to that, and didn't let people know that would be they'd be just as bad. Now. If she were doing that, because let's say she was behind on her rent. Does that change the dynamic at all? As opposed to buying booze and marijuana? Not the money. Okay, You're lying about something that people deal with on a daily basis somebody in their families, a friend who has cancer terminal cancer. Whatever it maybe they're dealing with that struggle. Note. There's no excuse If you're struggling in your life financially find another way, and I know it's easier said than done, but that's not the way to do it. They're homeless veterans living on the street. There's homeless people living on the street. And I mean, they're not making up cancer stories to try and get money. You know, just that's ridiculous. You want to make up that you want to make a sign that says you have a family home and maybe you don't and you want to get a couple extra bucks that way. I'm sure there are a couple people without a home who do that, But this is next level..

"Congressman Matt Gates, multiple All reports surfaced earlier today that Joel Greenberg, the former Seminole County tax collector and close associate of Gates, is facing charges for sex trafficking of a minor is in play negotiations. We know the Justice Department launched an investigation into Gates after first investigating and indicting Greenberg and the lawyer for Greenberg said today. You sure Matt Gates isn't feeling very comfortable right now. What do you make of that development? Well, you know, Ryan, it's something that any of us who are involved with the federal judicial system saw coming. Quite a while ago, they superseded the existing indictment on Greenberg. He was then violated on the conditions of his release taken into custody. And so now they have him where they want every several defendant and that's in jail and the only way out for him is to begin cooperating because his guidelines and fairly severe given the nature of all the charges that are pending against them, not just the sex trafficking charge and that one carries a significant penalty to it. His only way out now is to cooperate against somebody else and that somebody else Escape, and so gate should be very worried about what Greenberg has to say. He's a corroborating witness. He is according to everything that we read and seen a coconspirator in the activity involving the young lady who was under the age of 18. And so his testimony is going to bolster the government's case, and Gates is going to be looking at an indictment coming against him, and Greenberg's gonna benefit from his cooperation. Now I know

What Comes Next? Expert Advice on Working Our Way Out of the Pandemic
"Get things started. I'm joined by Dr Lucy McBride, practicing internist, Healthcare educator and mental health advocate who recently wrote a piece for The Washington Post on what comes next as we continue to work our way out of this pandemic, Dr McBride thanks for taking a few minutes to talk to us about this. Obviously everyone wants to put this difficult chapter of their life behind them. But you point out that there may be some struggles along the way as we get back to some kind of normal. What was it that led you to write this column for the Washington Post. Thank you. First of all for having me. I'm delighted to be here with you today. Um, the reason I wrote, this piece is because right now, we are about to face re entry as the country is being blanketed with vaccine doses and as the production and distribution ramps up We are facing the prospect of reentering life going back to school going back to work if we weren't working already which many of us are, um, going back to socializing hanging out with friends, hugging people traveling going to restaurants? And while that is something that we have been craving for 12 months Get the transition and what I've been talking about for 12 months and actually for my entire career is that you know our mental health is in is relevant to our our everyday lives and our everyday thoughts and feelings. And our mental health has been challenged for the last 12 months. We have been through what I would call a Collective trauma. It's only normal then, as we emerge from a trauma to have ambivalence and anxiety, even if the thing you're getting is better than what you have. How much does the fact that we don't have a playbook for this? This is a brand new experience for all of us. How much does that play into all of this? Absolutely a place. And you know when we are faced with a threat like Corona virus, you know, unique threat. That is invisible. If ubiquitous, it doesn't have a cure. Of course, the vaccine is the vaccines are marvelous, but for a long time we haven't had any way to control it other than our own behavior. We crave, um, control we crave certainty. We've all been dealing with this sort of low grade and in many cases, high grade level of fear and anxiety and vulnerability that Is universal. Really? It's you know, my patients think that it's unique to them that they're really anxious. And Heather and I say to them every day, you know this is normal. We are wired for survival as human beings. When we're faced with a threat like covert 19, it's normal to be anxious to have a heart racing heart palpitations. Tightness in their muscles, sleeplessness jitteriness affect your behavior. And so it's only normal then to be craving courtesy. And when we don't have a road map, we don't have a game plan per se. It could be nerve wracking. Let me say, though. That the game plan of widespread vaccination is Truly the past forward and really the only path forward and it's in. It's in. It's coming, so I'm absolutely hopeful that way have we do have we don't have a no game plan. We just It's just not certain. I'm joined by Dr Lucy McBride, practicing internist, Healthcare educator Mental health advocate. She recently wrote a piece for The Washington Post on what comes next. As we continue to work our way out of this pandemic. Are there certain types of people that might struggle with this more? Yes. People who have preexisting anxiety are having a harder time with the uncertainty, vulnerability and fear that the pandemic has brought. Um however, under the umbrella of anxious people are people who had social anxiety, and some of my patients who have social anxiety have actually been Comfortable sitting at home on Saturday nights, and therefore, Jonah, I'm raising my hands right now. Yes, I have a lot of my Saturday night spot on the sofa kids. So you know what? Let's acknowledge. First, kids have suffered enormously being out of school. But some kids, let's say middle school kids high school kids who have social anxiety. You know, that's been actually quite nice for them, but that is not to take away from the enormous emotional trauma two kids. The point is that if you had anxiety before this is not helping if you had depression before The pandemic and the socialist suit. Isolation is not helping. And then if you had an addiction to alcohol, you know other substances. If you were a binge here, for example, a stress eater those things May have flared during the epidemic when you were stripped of the usual coping mechanisms that you had in your regular life, like connecting with loved ones you know, taking, you know, going to the gym. So you know what I'm seeing in my office and the reason why it's relevant for a doctor to be talking about it is because these things affect our

Racism is Rife in the Royal Family
"Deputy editor at OK magazine, Jacqueline Raw to recap Oprah's interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and interview that got a lot of attention last night and has been a big top of conversation all throughout the day today, Jacqueline, Thanks so much for taking a few minutes. To talk to us about this so much to unpack from that interview, But let's start with what you think was the biggest headline. Oh, my God so much, But I think the big headline is that racism is a really big issue within the royal family. I think people don't understand that. You know, the rules only has been around for so long, and they've never had American, let alone You know, a half black American come into this family, and I think that really just turned everything around, and it just makes you feel so many things for me again. You know all this stuff behind the scenes that no one knows anything about and you know she's being treated this way. So crazy that this is happening and no one knew about it. What can you tell us about Meghan Markle before she got involved with Prince Harry and eventually married him when she was just an actress on suits? Was there anything that you heard in Hollywood about her? No. I feel like she was so off the radar like she was such a. You know, She's a big character in this, so but not many people really knew who she was until she started dating Harry. I feel like I remember the date came out and they said Meghan is now dating Harry and I remember everyone saying, Oh, this is the girl on suits, you know? It's crazy, and so on. But he does have a lot of these high profile friends. You know, obviously, yes. Serena Williams now and, um, have Abigail she was on. They were on so together something and they have Gayle King and Oprah like He's obviously been around for a long time. But I just don't think that she was very prevalent. Obviously, if he is now, which is really crazy, and the reason I ask that is because you've got a lot of people wondering First of all, who is this woman? And then is she some Hollywood actress who's prone to a lot of drama? Or is what she's saying? What happened that this is on the royal family? And the palace. I mean to the point where she revealed last night that she was thinking about killing herself. It got so bad that Prince Harry felt he had no choice but to get them out of there. Yeah, I mean, I feel like he I feel like everything that if he was in Hollywood before, but I feel like you know, it wasn't to this certain extent like no eyes were on her as they are now. Our words you know, when she first came into the family, she obviously was living a very much like lower key life. He was like the California girls. She had her own blood called the Pig. She was very, You know, kind of, you know, the boho California vibe like that's what He kind of made herself as and then no one really knew her like I feel like if you walked suits and you, obviously, you know, knew the character, but for the most part, he kind of stayed under the radar, So I feel like it's just Now all eyes are on her. People are just, you know, fasting, her left and right, especially when he came into the family. She's American. You know, Black sees all this stuff like I think he just he couldn't win. No matter how hard he Tried or tried Tol, you know, make nice and say, you know, I am a good person, or I do that all this charity work. I love this stuff. You know, It's just I think it's just became a huge breaking point. At some point. That's why I see You know, wanted to maybe kill herself. I mean, I can't even imagine what it's like waking up and having 100 headlines about you, and they're not good, and you just kind of have to sit back and say, OK, I guess I got to just take it and live my life kind of, but even living it. He said he was in the palace. He couldn't see that he didn't leave for months at a time because They just told her not to, which is so not a way to live and like, they said, with the pandemic now, I think everyone kind of can relate to being trust. At some point. I'm

That vast Celeski has grown so much as a netminder. He's a machine. He really s vasilevskiy. That really interesting character. And, of course, is a hockey player. He's very quiet with us. Naturally it apparently he's a real riot with the players, you know, on practice, days and days in between got a great sense of humor. But he is all business. When he shows up first thing in the morning, you talk to other players and go. You just leave Vasi to himself. He's he's already in that zone. He's got the body for it. It's 63 and well over £200. He's got the long legs and long arms. You know, we're talking about circuits have an experience exactly the same thing of front, John Goaltending coach talked about it recently saying that you know, vastly going all the way and winning the cup. It solidifies everything that they've talked about all the way along How your off season training regiment right through to the very last save in Game six against Dallas to win the Stanley Cup. Your gold center. Oftentimes is your best penalty killer and the Lightning had to kill off six power place from the stars, and that was big, according to egg blam, and he loved what he saw. Thought Alex Killorn had some sequences. I would point him out, especially. I thought he was incredible. He had four if not five. Individual plays where he just dismantled their attack. Turned the pack over and either shot out of the zone himself or made availability for somebody else that he was playing with the get the park and get it down. But they all were in great sequence when the pressure when not to That was a big part of the game and then getting on the scoreboard first two now, But Andre, polite, just has an affinity for that, And then he starts on time all the time. And that's always a big deal. Doesn't matter who you're playing. Whether it's Dallas and the team you played in the Stanley Cup finals or the last place team, Callie always seems to start on time and a that gives you a big advantage.

"With Ryan Gorman on PM Tampa Bay Joining me now I have Washington Post editorial writer Molly Roberts, who wrote a column for the Post on a brand new Britney Spears documentary and the reaction to it, Molly. Thanks for taking a few minutes to talk to us about this, and let's start with an overview of the documentary itself and what it shows. How would you summarize it? Especially for those who don't know much about Britney Spears and her backstory. Absolutely. So I would say that the documentary does two things, one of which is tell a story that a lot of us probably are of these plants and we familiar with because we saw it on the front of tabloids all through the two thousands. When we were standing in the grocery checkout aisle, and that's the story of Sidney stares, the pop star who started off as a member of the Mickey Mouse Club when she was a little kid, and then ended up having multi platinum record She played kind of Ah, We'll go sexy combination character and a number of music videos that were very popular on MTV, and she essentially was one of the biggest pop stars of that era but then ended up becoming much more. The focus of Intense scrutiny by the media by paparazzi about her personal life and about whether she was going off the rails. Whether she was a fit mother the end of that story. Was that she was forced essentially in the documentary argues into a conservatorship where her father took control of her state and her person. Again, according to the argument that she wasn't fit to do that herself. So the second thing the documentary does is dive into that conservative ship and asked the question. Is this really what Britney Spears blocked? So in your piece, you took a look back at how the media and I would say society in general treated her as she gained more and more fame and what's notable is how looking back There's so many moments involving the media and Brittany that air cringeworthy now but really didn't get much, if any scrutiny back then. Yes, I think one of the things the documentary does most effectively is run through what feels a lot like a worst hits real media interactions with Britney Spears. And this isn't just crazy. Tabloid headlines making fun of her when she's clearly struggling with real mental health issues, Bonified establishment interviewers like Diane Sawyer or Matt Lauer, and she'll see for going on these shows and you'll see people asking her when she's 16 about her breath and whether they're implants. And then you'll see Diane Sawyer, playing back to her a clip of the Maryland governor's wife, saying that if she could shoot Britney Spears, she would give him the opportunity because Britney Spears broke Justin Timberlake's heart essentially in that that's really bad example. For kids, you'll see Matt Lauer basically. Confronting her with the question of whether she is the horrible mother. All of it is laced in this kind of nonchalant misogyny that I think we all considered sort of standard sort of normal, totally acceptable and watching these things back in the day, watching almost every late night host just totally rip into her. It seemed like Of course, this is OK. And even of course, there's the matter of comedy. Watching it now it is just shocking. Grotesque. It seems like our cultural reaction today is precisely the opposite of what it was back then. I'm joined by Molly Roberts, Washington Post editorial writer who wrote a column for the post on a new Britney Spears documentary and the reaction to it. You also explain in your piece the time and this idea that society was trying to get closer to celebrities. There was this push Kind of make them into. You know, normal people talk about that aspect of all of this. Yeah, This was just around the time that you would look at those tabloids that you could get in the grocery checkout aisle, and they have a page on them, said something like stars. They're just like us. And it would show you pop stars getting coffee, for example, or just stepping out of the house to get the newspaper. But they were wearing sweat pants and they didn't look as Stunningly attractive as they do in more managers, photos and the idea there was well. We want to bring them down to our level. We don't just want to aspire to their family want to aspire to relate to them, And I think that Part of the attempts to relate. Let us to do things like make fun of them when they were having real problems, things that aren't funny because that was a way of bringing them down more tar level and making them feel like they really were Maurin reach. I think Britney Spears suffered a lot from our impulse to do just that. You know what I was thinking about Britney Spears following this documentary and all of the reaction to it. We have a tendency in this country to build people up and then to tear them down and then sometimes, depending on who they are, and the circumstances, give them a second chance and build them back up again. We've seen it time and time again. Tiger Woods would be a good example of that. But to me, the difference with Britney was She really wasn't doing anything wrong to beat Orange down. She just got caught up in the tabloid frenzy. And it seems like all of that led to a breakdown, which we all watched and and in. A lot of cases didn't really handle right. Probably not how we would handle a celebrity going through a mental health crisis like that today. Yeah, I think that that's exactly right. I think that we basically wrote a story for Britney. And then when we wrote it, it came into being and when she was trying to do was just to live her life. But we weren't going to allow her to do that on her own terms. And so now when we asked the question, and when the judge asked the question of whether she needs to be under the conservatorship It's hard to say, because she's not allowed to speak, but Even if it's true, it doesn't have results from our insistence that she was never capable in the first place, the narrative that she was never capable. The paparazzi were desperate to prove so they pursued her without quarter constantly, and it was partly that That drove her to the place. She ended up. I'm joined by Molly Roberts, Washington Post editorial writer Talking about this new Britney Spears documentary and the reaction to it now. This doesn't excuse some of what we see in this documentary by any means, And I certainly don't want this to come office sounding like slut shaming or anything like that..

"I'm Ryan Gorman with me this evening, James Berland er on the board Coming up this hour, we'll talk some Florida politics with the publisher of Florida politics, Peter Schorsch. Right now we continue our coverage of Super Bowl 55. Joining me is Linda Raymond, downtown Tampa Partnership CEO to talk about the different ways for you to enjoy the Super Bowl experience in downtown Tampa. Linda thanks so much for taking a few minutes to check in. So when did the planning for all of this begin? Oh, my goodness. It probably began last year, actually, so I think they probably start planning immediately after The next Super boulder of the last Super Bowl, So it's been in the works for a long, long time. So obviously, things have changed because a co bit coming on board. But yeah, it's been in the planning for a very, very long time. So what has the relationship in like between the downtown Tampa partnership and the group putting on the Super Bowl and all of those related events? So we are part of her committee. We have two of our staff members who are on that committee and we're really tasked with activists after of the downtown parks and just helping with that activation, so you'll see things that Julian be lane. Of course, Curtis sticks and, um, also Waterworks Park up in the camp, a heights area. They're just making sure that those downtown places get activated and helping to secure and organize at those activity. Obviously, because of the pandemic, we're not seeing the crowds that we usually see for these pre Super Bowl events. How is covered 19 force you to adjust your planning. I'm sure it's had quite an impact. Well, it has because normally, I think that you would have probably open borders. If you will not have been stopping or U to the n effect. L experience, you know, generally that was held at the convention center. So you have an influx of Mork crowds for sure. So it's more of 50% capacity now on dare taking tickets so you could before it's sold out. You could buy your tickets or secure your tickets online. And now you, you know you had this Secure a time slot now, so they were only allowing so many people in at a time to comply with that six but distant scene and just within CDC guidelines, so that certainly You now have Limited the amount of people who could go to these events, the crowd so far how they've been from what I've seen on social media and TV. It looks like there's a pretty solid turnout this past weekend. Well, everything's sold out very quickly, and then it went online. So you have to be quick and getting your secure time. Um, the experiences that are downtown and there are happening have been tremendous. So the crowds are there. Um They are coming to experience what they can. There's a lot of excitement downtown, so we are definitely seeing that, um people want to be out in about the Riverwalk is very crowded. So people are just excited. They're excited to be out there reporting the teams and Super Bowl in general, so it's grating it following up on that real quick. Obviously, there's lots of people across Tampa Bay, who would be participating in these events, Regardless, But have you found that the interest and excitement is that an even higher level because our hometown team is in the Super Bowl? Oh, my God course way. Love it. So, yeah, That's a definite first camper for sure. And being the first time in history that it happened in the home team, you know, being being in the Super Bowl itself. It's just created a lot of excitement for us. So we're very happy that the Kansas City If we're going to be visiting naps, and all of their fans will be here. But of course, we're so super happy that the bucks are in it. I'm joined by Linda Raymond, Downtown Tampa Partnership CEO were talking about how you can enjoy the Super Bowl experience in downtown Tampa. And stepping through some of what downtown Tampa has to offer this week. It sounds like on the water is where it's at some great options along the river. Oh, my gosh. So there are a lot of grief to get out into the water. So, um You may be familiar with the E boat so you can run Annie boat and go out. It holds 10 people. You can get out on the river that way you can do the Riverwalk boating company. That camper water Taxi the Cretan cycle boat. So if you're in the cycling, you can get on a cycle boat and actually be on a bicycle out of the water. The Tampa Bay Fun boat, of course, is the yacht starship. That's the General Kirk. You could do that You could bring your own conduct so lot of ways I have to get out onto the water. One thing that tends to fascinate people, and I know because I've seen it when I've done live broadcast throughout my career. People like to see how all of that is done, and they can get a behind the scenes. Look at some of the coverage CBS is doing this week. Tell us about that. Well, you can go down the armature works. I'm sure everybody knows where that is at the north end in the camp area, and CBS Sports is the official media partner and they're broadcasting live from armature works. Um so you can go there and actually, you know, watch the broadcasters. Um, do the news from there So, uh, and enjoy everything that's going on and on to work so you can see that line. You know, another element that event planner's taken to consideration these days are places where people can get some great pictures for social media. You've got a bunch of them around downtown Tampa. What are a few that you'd recommend? Well, there is a large, um, Super Bowl sign in front of Curtis six and Park..

"Ryan Gorman with me this evening. Rory O'Neill, Continuing now with insight and analysis into the day's events, And joining me is columnist for Business Insider Josh Barrow to offer his thoughts. Josh, Thanks so much for taking a few minutes to talk to us this evening and Let's start with your reaction to Joe Biden's inaugural address. Did you think it hit the notes that he needed to hit today? I thought it did. I thought, thank you know that this special refreshment turn of the page in the country from from four years of chaos and craziness and inappropriateness and I thought that he had a good message about unity. That was not a vacuous version. The community. I mean, you know the way want to be united in the country. It doesn't mean having no disagreement. That doesn't mean that you know the very real ideological differences, differences of values that we have to be washed away in our conversation, but we need a vision. There is inclusive of all Americans. That compared to the one that we saw over the last four years, and so I thought he really got that across. And I don't think you know the kind of very specific challenges indicated this moment or you will be the focus in the first year of his administration. But I think I I think it really did it right now. Is the success or failure of Joe Biden's first year in office, really going to be dependent upon the success of the distribution of covert 19 vaccines? Absolutely. I think you know that there are two key tasks for this year and there are essentially the same path. He's uh, need to get out of the pandemic and back into, you know, normal that conditions in this country and it needs provide the economy on doing that. First thing is what will make the second thing possible, And obviously there are other elements that he's already proposed a large additional round of relief. Now sounds like I probably won't move out of Congress. And he said the broader components of it until marks, But the first task is really figuring out what can be done to speed up the manufacturing and distribution of that team. That we can have a larger fraction of population vaccinated more quickly and return back to normal more quickly. I think that is going to be the overriding political focus the administration in his first year I'm joined by columnist for Business Insider Josh Barrow here on our live coverage of the inauguration of Jill Biden. Immigration has jumped to the top of the priority list right behind issues dealing with the pandemic. And is that something that is a smart strategy? And do you think there is a deal that could potentially get done on immigration? Something that past administrations have tried and not had much success with I don't think a deal along the lines of what the Bible administration is sketched out is likely to get done on immigration, so expansive and scope. I think you know that I couldn't get it done in 2013. I think that if you look at who's in the U S Senate now that's important for comprehensive immigration reform. Has declined since then, obviously Donald Trump and also dragged Republican Party significantly and get directions. So I think would be really challenging to get it through their or through the house where the Democrats barely have a majority. I was surprised to see Biden identifying that at such an early priority, and I wonder if the reason for that is No, they're gonna be too big aspects and immigration discussions under him. One have to do with long range immigration policy changes whom will be allowed to immigrate legally, whether we're going to have an amnesty for for millions of unauthorized immigrants currently in United States and the other has to do with what's going on today at the at the border with Mexico. On. Do you know to the extent that there are there are lots of people who under the Trump Administration's policies are waiting in Mexico right now, trying to make a sign of science in the U. S. There are lots of additional people in Central America who might felt fight to come to United States. They thought that was Likelier that they won't get processed into the U. S in the back Bay either would have a successful asylum claim or that they would be able to live here for extended period while that's being adjudicated on, So I think the bite administration's gonna find it challenging to manage that situation at the border in a way that is more humane than the Trump Administration has. Without encouraging large group of migrants were a big political problem for the Obama administration. 2014 I think The likely slow walk that will see on changes. The border may have been a reason for buying to talk about big, long term vision stuff on immigration to help satisfy a progressive element to the coalition is probably not gonna be happy with the pace of change is in the southern border over the next few months. Final question for you. And again, I'm talking a columnist for business Insider Josh Barrow, who you can follow on Twitter at J. Barrow. Whatever Does the power lie in Washington now? Is it Maura with coalitions? In the center or will the extremes dominate the debate moving forward? I think the power will the covering. Congress certainly lies in the center because you haven't evenly divided Senate Susan Collins and Joe Mansion and formed a group of moderate senators around them. They're going to meet eating. But your Bibles economic team talk about open relief there. They're gonna have a lot of saying they're gonna be the one to decide whether big pieces of legislation, including economic legislation can pass the Congress. But the president also has a lot of executive authority. And there have been a lot of personal text that Biden has made that are invented. Progressive left is happy with there will be things that he could do with a doesn't need. Congress's approval on there could be significantly more progressive than me. What? What? It's preposterous. So in that area, I think you could see significant. On opportunities for the left have significant victories but legislatively, it's really gonna be dominated by the center. It's the right thing obviously, is on the ass, with Democrats controlling both the Congress and the president..

"With Ryan Gorman. Joining me now on the hotline. We've got a whole bunch of stuff to discuss this evening. I have former state and federal prosecutor David Weinstein. David, Thanks so much for taking a few minutes to talk to us. We appreciate it. Always glad to speak with you, Ryan Lot going on today. Lots going on. Let me start with the Rebecca Jones case. If you can. Can you give us an overview as to what this case is all about, and the developments that we learned of over the past couple of days. This is the former Department of Health employees who alleged that Governor the Santis and his administration was basically fudging the numbers when it came to the pandemic here in Florida. Ryan. It's certainly clear that the attention was focused on her for doing exactly that. Focusing back on the governor and how the pandemic was handled and how he was accounting for the numbers. But what we learned from her arrest warrant that was on the field when she surrendered yesterday. Was that what they've charged her with is not sending out the message that was talked about so much when they issued the search warrant. Rather for unlawfully accessing the computer database and downloading a list of names of individuals and information about them that was contained on The department's computer database. And you know, it's not unlike what happened with Christopher Korea of the ST Louis Cardinals, where he unlawfully and without permission. Intruded into the computer network of the ST Louis Cardinals and downloaded a significant amount of information Now with Korea. He monetized what he did ended up getting charged federally and was facing a little under four years in prison. Rebecca Jones hasn't monetized it yet, but by intruding on the computer system and downloading it, she's committed a third degree felony, which if the governor would agree Would be eligible for pre trial diversion. So there's a lot of talk about what the focus was why she became a target the investigation but In the end, it doesn't seem to be about any messages he sent out, but rather about information she took without permission. Interesting. The national media has painted a picture of Rebecca Jones that I've just never understood because going back to her allegations about covert 19 data, and there have been some things with the numbers that I have unnecessarily agreed with, but, uh, evidence to match her allegations. Have not seen And then when authorities showed up at her place, and I'd like to get your thoughts on that video to just if you thought that was appropriate or not, but they show up at her place, and there's this warrant issued and all of that, and it looked like or at least she tried to paint it like the governor was targeting her because of how outspoken she's been. About his handling of the pandemic. Now we find there was a legitimate reason that those warrants were issued. Well again if you now trace back both the allegations that were made in the arrest warrant the support of the probable cause to get the warrant for her arrest. And some of the same allegations that were contained in the affidavit for the search warrant. You'll see that they had information that someone was intruding into the computer system. And they did it by the books. Now I'm a little still disturbed about the way that they carried out the execution of the warrant. The preparation of the warrant and both for her arrest and for the search, But those were done by the books. They got information. They sent subpoenas to the Carrier that was providing Internet service. They traced it back. They made sure it was coming back to her. Using that I P address they were only looking to seize computers to which she had access to Not necessarily everybody else in the house and then, when they went, looked on those computers. They saw, in fact that she had been the individual who had made access to the database and had downloaded the information. That's separate and apart from what we all saw the photos of when they went into her house with guns drawn, and certainly and I know you've probably cover this with Felix in days past. Yes, when you're going in to execute a search warrant, you don't want to be taken by surprise by anything that's going on. That's why you conduct surveillance beforehand. You do research on what they're not. The individual you're going after is likely to be armed and dangerous. But you know the pictures that I saw. I really don't know that it was necessary to the degree that they went into a house where there was an unarmed woman and her family and and miners in the fashion that they did. That was perhaps Little overblown. Yeah, I thought it It seemed to be a bit much. And then on top of all of that, Apparently, she found out that she was positive for the coronavirus when she turned herself in. So so many twists and turns with the story of Rebecca Jones and her role in the pandemic here in Florida I'm joined by former state and federal prosecutor David Weinstein here on PM Tampa Bay. Let's shift gears and talk about what took place on January 6th and the fall out from the insurrection. Those who were involved those who were at the Capitol who went in to the U. S Capitol building. We're seeing them charged all across the country, including. Unfortunately many individuals here in the state of Florida. What stood out to you about how the Department of Justice is handling that investigation and what you're seeing from the filings? What stands out to me is both the patients on the part of the Department of Justice. If they're not rushing quickly to make arrests. And quite frankly, the cooperation of the rest of the country in assisting the Department of Justice to rest people who don't quite understand how social media works. Many of these individuals thought it would be a good idea to not only photograph but to broadcast exactly what they're doing, and for those that are unaware with what the charges are very simplistic charges. It is. Illegal to knowingly and without permission enter into the Capitol building that gets you a felony. If you're armed, it gets you in increased felony and to support the interruption of the business of the legislators. Do just the same. And these people were recording not only for posterity and for what they believe to be sending out to their supporters and viewers, but Helping the prosecutors to put their cases together. And so what I'm impressed with is how cooperative people have been in identifying the individuals because that was the missing link. They had information about what happened. They weren't sure who it was the committed these crimes and they needed positive identification and through assistance of the defendants and people who knew them. I'm getting that cooperation and it's been slow. It's been the particle. We're seeing complaints that have been filed. There may still yet be indictments that were going to be filed that we're going to link many of these actors together in a much larger conspiracy, and we saw some of that. But some of the festival made down here in South Florida today. People who are alleged to have been members of one or other organizations that in some ways, we're linked together with the activity that took place on the sixth. Some of the stories that I've seen. I know one story involved in ex wife who saw the social media posts of her ex husband at the Capitol and She, of course, turned him in. Why not?.

"I'm Ryan Gorman from I already l filling in for the team here on this Martin Luther King Jr Day, and we're a couple of weeks into January. A lot of people who made those New year's resolutions already having a difficult time keeping them still, for some help with that I'm joined by Leora Luciano Lifestyle and wellness expert and founder of ever so popular dot com Leora. We're really good at making resolutions. That's that's not the problem. It's the keeping them. That's what we have an issue with. That is so true. Thank you, Ryan. It is that time of year where you know we are all collectively setting these personal goals. And, you know, I think the new year brings on a sense of hope and optimism for what the rest of the year could look like. Which is great. It's a time for reflection and self improvement. And, you know, manifestation if you will. I think all of those things are amazing when it comes to making a new year's resolution, and it's not too late. We're only 18 days into January. Still make one if you want. What are some things that people should keep in mind when making them? Oh, yeah, well, absolutely. This is, you know, I think one of the things that Um You know, it's so important with resolutions is you're going to have to be coming back to them all the time to reevaluate. So I just want to get into actually, um, You know the top resolutions, the most common one on do they? And they tend to be for 2021 the most popular resolutions. Are to be more active, eat healthier, lose weight, improve mental well being and improved finances. So with those in mind, those are all great, but They don't really tell you much. So I think the overarching issue is they aren't specific enough there too Broad. And you know, by saying something, for example, you want to be more active. What does that really mean? You know, are you? Are you a marathon runners? You want to run more marathons? Or are you somebody who is more seven? Terry, you know for work, and you just want to move your body so those could be like they could have the same overarching goal. But you're gonna have to very different paths to get your goal. Right. You see what I mean? You know that makes a lot of sense, usually what I do when it comes to the lead up to a new year. And I don't know if this is the right way to go about it or not, But I take a look back at the previous year and pick a finger to that. I want to improve on and just kind of focus on that trying to improve that area of my life. Whatever it is, sometimes it's held related. Sometimes it's work related. Sometimes personal. Is that a smart way to go about it? Yes. Absolutely. The right way. You should be. You could tell me if it's a dumb idea. Feel afraid? Don't hold back. No, not at all that I think you know. I think we all have the best of intentions when setting resolutions, But we have to be mindful about why we want to make these changes. I think that's also that's also it. See that A lot of people are missing. So I just wanted t mention to you, You know, setting those resolutions are great, You know, you know you can focus on any facet or area of your life. Um some of the top reason that these resolutions fail. Is, you know really that they are, too general and they often are unrealistic. So you have to really get real with yourself. I think that's one of the big things. So a Zilong is. You're being honest with yourself and realistic, I think, and on Lee, you can say that, you know, and you know, unless you're saying Something like I don't know something really crazy like I don't know what would be really crazy like you. Sometimes people, especially if they're going to go on a diet. They want to lose weight. They will completely alter What they eat right away rather than phasing it in, and that's often why it doesn't last past January. You know it's just too much. Absolutely okay. So I won't say that. You know, I think the studies show that 80% of those to make resolutions at the top of the year fail. And it is exactly what you are saying It is because if somebody makes a resolution, they want to lose weight and they are all you know, they're all in at the top of the years. They're like, Okay, I'm gonna meal press. I'm gonna do this. I'm going to cook all of my own food. And how long are they able to sustain that? You know, I mean, that's that's the real question. And also, you know, again, it goes back to How committed are you to it and committed to the entire process. So I have. I do have some action steps that we can take that I want to get into, um on this so Really. It's about making those resolutions sticky on keeping them so it's really about we framing what they are. It's gold setting with full intention. And for that we need it's in the monitor. That I like to use Smart s M A. R T F. We need smart before resolution, So the first one is and we talked about this already is to be Stiff it. You're gonna want to be a clear and precise is possible and setting these resolution. What does that mean? Like? Again. I'll just go back to running. If you are, If you're a runner, and you want to run a marathon again, you know. Be specific with it. Okay? I want to run. You know you might need qualified, but I want to run a marathon and you know, no them for something like that. Let's see. So you kind of have to How You have to, you know, know what your overarching goal is, but then be able to set that plan to be able to set those wheels in motion very specifically. Is that Nick from that? They know that makes absolute sense. And then you have here as part of smarts measurable, like a way to track your results. And on that note, I'll give everyone an example of one thing that I want to do coming into this new year, and it was a simple thing. Drink more water. Because I have so many health experts on all the time that I'm talking to you when they constantly say drinking more water is such an important part of being healthier. And so I invested in one of those smart water bottles that will hold me accountable and I contract my progress on a nap. It's something simple, but I feel like it's there's a better chance. I will keep the resolution that way, then just saying, drink more water and not having a set goal or a way to track it. Absolutely. So what you're doing is it's a little bit of that, Um, you know, within that measure, making things measurable, you want to be able to track it. So in Apple's great for that you can also go old school in journal. You know, 10 in paper, or you can do it in your phone. Um, there's just so many ways to do it. Yeah, You absolutely want to track it so you can see you hit it. You know yourself, hitting those markers or milestone, And then you have here setting realistic resolution so achievable and that would be something I think that it's achievable, drinking or what? It's not. You know, I'm gonna lose £100 this year, which maybe somebody can do But for a lot of people, that's gonna be a difficult task. Right. You're absolutely right. That is something that is achievable. And you know, we're you know, following along with that plan, it's also relevant to you. Um, that's R r in smart. This allies with, you know the the information in the knowledge that you're getting through these experts that you speak with and you know, it's something that you are driven and committed to do for yourself..

"I'm Ryan Gorman and we have some great conversations lined up for you first. Take a look at the current Corona virus outbreak and getting update on covert 19 vaccines from an official within the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services, then with Martin Luther King Jr Day upon us, I'll check in with the deep to discuss his legacy. How the movement he led still impacts them today and his connection with the organization. So all of that, and more is on the way to get things rolling. I'm joined by Rear Admiral Doctor Felicia Collins, deputy assistant secretary for mine. Already helped in the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services and director of the Office of Minority Health. Dr Collins. Thank you so much for taking a few minutes to talk to us, and before we get to the latest on the pandemic, tell us about the work you do in the office of Minority Health. So Hello, Ryan. It really is a pleasure to be with you and your listeners today. Um, again, I am the director of the office to minority Health. And in a nutshell, What we're responsible for doing is helping to reduce Differences in health outcomes known its health disparities racial and ethnic minority communities. And so our office works in partnership with other federal agencies. A group advocacy group media organizations in order to accomplish that goal, and then in the context of coded, we are particularly involved in work in partnership with groups such as the National Institutes of Health in my Age, where you know Dr Fauci works and is a household name at this point. Centers for Disease Control prevention, CDC and the Food and Drug Administration. FDA Just to name a few. And on that note, can you give us an update on where the country is that in our response to the pandemic, we've certainly seen Quite an increase in cases, hospitalizations and deaths following the holidays, So you're absolutely right. The numbers of infection across the nation remain at a high level, and it is really concerning After the recent holidays we have seen and continue to see increases in the number of cases and there was a possible is a shins and death so that the CDC reports were well over the 20 million mark nationwide. Um, and numbers of deaths are likewise increasing. It's actually Chilling in some ways when we hear someone like Dr Fauci, who has been involved in infectious disease outbreaks for 40 years, say that this is the worst thing he has ever seen in his career. But I do want to say that despite those numbers, I'm really encouraged by the fact that we now have two vaccines that are available in our state and local governments or executing their vaccination plans. Got to going into arms across the nation, which is really, really important. And so we're at a point where the federal the state, the local government, health care providers, community based organizations, advocacy media like yourself, we are all working together to get the word out about covert vaccination and to answer any questions. And concerns that exist so it's really important that we are all ready to receive that vaccine when it becomes available test. I'm joined by Rear Admiral Doctor Felicia Collins, deputy assistant secretary from minority Health in the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services and director of the Office of Minority Health. Tell us about the impact this pandemic has had on minority communities across the country. As someone who focuses on minority health. There's certainly been a disproportionate impact on those communities and variety of different ways. Correct. That is correct. And if we just look at the data, the data show us that African Americans, Latinos and American Indians, Alaska natives at a national level or more likely to test positive for Covitz. We're likely to be hospitalized and more likely to die compared to non Hispanic whites. And while Cove it indeed has revealed or really shined a bright light on racial ethnic disparities in the U. S on these disparities that we're seeing, unfortunately, are really the same. Has existed before covert 19 for their differences in these covert health outcomes or helped experiences. We call it and and they reflect conditions that we live in which the public health term for that is social determinants of health and social determinants of health include whether we have access to health care and whether we have quality health care. But there are A number of other elements that are also included in social determinants of health. They include things like our housing in the transportation we use and access to education and job opportunities just to name a few. So if we apply this social determinants of health concept to cove in communities of color, more likely to become infected with Cove it because, for example, we disproportionately Are the essential employees who work in long term care facilities or grocery stores, and we drive the trains and Busses and can't work from home. And then to make matters even worse, racial, ethnic minorities and American Indians in Alaska natives are more likely to have conditions that put us at an increased risk of severe illness if we get infected by covert, and so, in that case, we're talking about things such as chronic kidney disease and sickle cell disease and diabetes. Obesity just again, just to name a few. So there are a lot of factors that are in play here for the increased risk. TomKat Muniz of color, which makes you know opportunities like this so important because we really want to be sure that everyone has accurate information about the covert vaccine and the role that it plays in defeating the pandemic. I'm joined by Rear Admiral Doctor Felicia Collins, deputy assistant Secretary for minority Health in the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services and director of the Office of Minority Help. Take a look at the Cova 19 vaccines For a moment we know in this country..

"Have video coverage of chaos at the Capitol. I'm your host Ryan Gorman were monitoring situation on Capitol Hill right now, as lawmakers have reconvened, and they're continuing with the certification of the 2020 election we've heard from Vice President Mike Pence. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is currently on the floor speaking, let's go back to the hotline and joining us once again. We have. I already owe Tasha host from W. SEC in Charleston, Kelly Golden, who was in Washington D. C today, as all of this was unfolding, but what I found most interesting about our conversation. Tonight. Kelly is that it's amazing. You were in one area and had just a completely different experience compared to what most of America and the rest of the world was witnessing unfold. Completely for the entire day. Honestly, um, it was one thing to watch the You know the president's speech live from the pipe area, and then we marched to the Capitol but last among all other people like I had mentioned. Earlier we were waiting to meet up with our whole group. And it took a while and so you know, we were sort of the struggle bus all the way in the end, only to show up and see from a distance. You know, people that looked very calm. I mean, even tonight, people kneeling in prayer throughout the day. It was You know, a calm, peaceful folks, um, praying and eating from food trucks and having a good time And then all the sudden, you know, as we're walking up to the Capitol, it was things change with all of the you know, law enforcement officers coming from every corner. And what's interesting is being on the bus back home with folks talking to people some who were you know up at the top of the steps who you know where things were chaotic and then other people who were down more where I was experiencing things going. Okay? What the heck is going on here? This has been such a beautiful day. What is this red stuff You put red plume of smoke in the sky happens to be a tear gas and it's just It's been a completely insane day. Obviously. What I find interesting is, you know some of the folks and how they feel about what went down today whether they agreed in the frustration of it. There's a lot of agreement in the frustration of it, but maybe not the way it went down. Clearly, no one should have lost their lives today. Nobody wants that. This is the crowd that actually always, you know, follows the rules, and we saw the brink of their frustration of that today of following the rules. What is that? God knows we're still not being heard on. Do you know doesn't right here. That's raising Mother. You're You're young Mom. How's your little boy 3.5, and what's your take on the day? It was marvelous. There was a historical It was. I'm so glad I made it, you know? I was hesitant in the beginning, but I wanted to go and support my country. I wanted to support the president. I think he's magnificent and what he's doing. And what about the violence unfolding as a mom and Money supporting some of the people. I think that it's a far cry from what's been going on the last 68 months. There was no violence. It was peaceful. We everyone got along There was no one fighting pushing. We spoke to the police. Several times. Just everything was great. And then you're referencing the looting And the answer from the past. Yes, And everybody said that. Oh, well, they were getting their point across. They were doing this and now we're being attacked for Getting our voice out or for those wanting to stand there and hold the you know the line and hope that things get turned around or come out the right way. They should. Right on the first of several people afterwards, you know, asking their cake because once we got the alert on the phone, you know we were taking pictures of, you know all the people out there and it looks very peaceful. It was just magnificent and then waving the flag from the balcony and I guess yeah, they computed agent interrupting. Yeah. And then seeing 90 Miles an hour. All the police come by and all of the Don't you the Secret service, almost ramming into them at the light. We're like, Oh, my gosh, thinking this could be an accident there and then they just carried on. But when we finally met up with people, and they said that they had gotten pepper sprayed, and they got hit with rubber bullets, and they weren't trying. They weren't upset. You know, because they were there. Look way over there. We're fine. Um and I hate I cannot believe that someone like it's on now because of this, and, uh, you know, prayers for the family prayers for everyone, and I can't people know that It was not a violent day there and well up until it was, though. Yeah, well, Kelly, let me just bring it back to you for a second, because what I find fascinating, and I heard some of this when I was taking calls on my local show before doing this special There seems to be a bit of a disconnect between what lawmakers are saying leadership out of Washington, D. C is saying, And I'm talking about Republican leadership, not just the Democratic leaders, including the vice president, and what Someone like this. This last individual who you put on is saying about all of it. I mean, the condemnation is coming in in a very swift manner, and it's very strong based on what happened today, but it seems like if you were there like where you were with those individuals that were around you and you didn't experience what we all watched that it's just a completely different perspective on the day. I don't know. And the reporters, I have to say what I have seen So far. I've watched about five different reporters talking about it, and they're just it sounds like a heinous crime, like like it was just horrible and vicious and we made the entire day. We'll know. Yes, at the end because I did see a woman correct yourself. One of the reporters just said, you know, it's it's different than earlier in the day There was nothing that were wrong. I mean, one Um, liberal approached us as we're walking, you know, And he was like, I can't believe us in people. Don't you know how to count? You know, he lost to get over it. And then I mean, he was just custom is going down the street, you know, and So that was that, And that was the only encounter we had with something negative up until this happening, but the way that the media is portraying everything happy. It's not how it went down. I have to try. I do have to go. I do have to step in and say it's really not just the media. I mean, this is what lawmakers if you listen to Let me Kelly, let me bring you back into the conversation here. If you listen to what the vice president if you listen to what the Senate majority leader just said, talking about an insurrection at the Capitol. I mean, they're using that kind of forceful language, right? Yeah, I think I saw the vice president's tweet about you know anyone who there's destruction of property. There should be consequences. I think everyone on this bus agrees with that again. These air folks who are a lot of law abiding people who have seen quite literally for coming from Charleston, South Carolina, are our businesses on Upper King Street. Looted and burned, and they didn't say a whole lot of strong talk from their own local lawmakers, frankly, This is something that, of course, has been building for quite some time..

"Ryan Gorman. Lots of breaking news this evening, Congress is set to resume their activities. In the Capitol building, counting the electoral college votes, and it sounds like the objections. We were expecting quite a few objections to Joe Biden's electoral college victory. It sounds like there won't be as many now after what has unfolded at our nation's Capitol throughout the day today, also The president's Twitter accounts has been locked for 12 hours. Twitter safety put out these tweets about 15 minutes ago, saying as a result of the unprecedented and ongoing violence situation in Washington, D C. We have required the removal of three Real Donald Trump tweets that were posted earlier today for repeated and severe violations of our civic integrity policy. This means that the accounts of real Donald Trump will be locked for 12 hours following the removal of these tweets. If the tweets are not removed, the account will remain locked future violations of the Twitter rules, including our civic integrity or violent threats, policies. Will result in permanent suspension of the real Donald Trump account that follows Facebook and YouTube taking down the video that the president put out earlier today, joining me now on the hotline to unpack. Some of this. I have reporter for politico who is ah White House in Washington reporter Daniel Lippman joins me, Daniel really great to have you on and to get your insight into what has been a infamous day in American history. Where do you want to start? What? What is the headline that comes out of today? The headline is This is what you get when a president for the last two months has been broadcasting in every media platform, including his Twitter account that where you're talking about Unsubstantiated and false allegations of voter fraud that are just not accurate, and they've led millions of his supporters, including the tens of thousands that shut up, Um In Washington today to believe that this election was stolen from them. When there is just no evidence that there was widespread fraud that would have changed the results. So You know that This is kind of this is shocking, but it's also not surprising because Um, this, you know they're always Out liars and extremists in crowds that want toe. I kind of breach the security and they wanted to make a stand, and they did. Someone who covers the White House and Washington and knows the capital real well. Were you surprised that these individuals were able to get into the Capitol building and do some of the things that we have seen them do throughout the day? Yeah, I was pretty shocked because my colleague and I, we drove around the hill yesterday, and there's lots of little metal barriers. Barricades there were set up, but there wasn't tons of security. Um, And so they definitely underestimated how much they would have needed for today on so I think there's going to be an investigation. It's not on the scale of Um, when Steve Scalise was shot on, Drew's uncertain whether he would survive because the the protesters who entered the Capitol building, um they weren't Uh, Violent against members or police. Except for that one woman who we don't know the cause of who died? Who? We don't know what happened to her? Um, but they definitely scared everyone on on the hill and There's gonna be a big revamp to make sure that this doesn't happen again. I'm sure security would be tightened for the future. I'm joined by Politico reporter covering the White House in Washington, D. C. Daniel Lipman here in our I heard radio special. It sounds like the tone among members of Congress has changed quite a bit. It does not sound like a long lengthy list of objections is going to be coming as the Electoral college count continues, starting coming up here in a little bit. More than half our eyes that what you're hearing as well that this process will well, actually, now move pretty quickly. I don't think there's a ton of members who want to be on the sides of the side of the riders. In the mob who stormed the capital on so I think they made their point. And so I think they're so go, um More quickly and not sure exactly how long how late into the night. It will last, But, uh, definitely the winds have shifted. Where if they had that storm that then we could have had our you know, a day long debate. But because of this, uh you know, historic disruption, then they think it will be faster. Were you surprised by the reports that it appeared to be vice President Mike Pence, who was coordinating the security situation, especially when it comes to the D. C National Guard with the Pentagon, the acting secretary of defense. The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Leadership in Congress that that was coming from the vice president and not the president himself. Little surprised, although they didn't need the president's approval for this, um and so I think there was more being notified. And so the Pentagon approved these two requests from the D C. Mayor. And because I think the Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy, he has control over the D. C. National guard. Um And so I was part of the reason D C does not is not a state so they don't They lack control over everything. Um, but Um, you know, Vice President Pence is a little unclear where he was taken. He was taking a secure facility. Your secure location. After it looked like they had lost control of the capital. And so I was a mad rush to get those lawmakers out there. You know, you've seen this famous photos from the wire services of, um House House members hiding, um and the guns drawn. That's just amazing insight we shouldn't was was You know, we shouldn't lose sight of that. The images. They're just surreal. Really. I'm joined by politico reporter Daniel Lippman recapping all that took place on Capitol Hill and in Washington, D C Today And right now it looks like there is still a standoff among some members of what it looks like was the crowd that was at the Capitol building earlier today, and law enforcement in Washington D. C. From what? You were hearing in advance of today. How significant word the security concerns. From lawmakers and those in the DC area. Um, it was, um You know they were significant, but I think they just members also underestimated how, uh, you know how violent it could get in terms of storming it. I don't think any of the, uh You know, I don't think many of the protesters were actually stormed the building. They didn't want to do violence against they don't wanna Uh, you know, hurt the members of Congress. They wanted to make a political point. Uh, and they wanted to get their 15 minutes of fame and get their self. He's Other grandkids. Hey, I was there. It doesn't seem like they've gotten much..

Even though it's the regular season the show is on, and I'm just kind of ramping back up here in the new year. This is of course, the first show a PM Tampa Bay in 2021. I'm Ryan Gorman with me this evening, James Berland her on the board, and a couple of questions to toss out to you on the phone number is 809 69 93 52 again 809 69 93 52 1st of all. If you attempted to sign up for the vaccine here in the Tampa Bay area, maybe you were trying to sign up. Ah, loved one who's over the age of 65? What was your experience like? Because Most of the reporting. I've seen most of the conversations I've had today. It's been a rough go of it here on day one. I think some of that is to be expected. It does frustrate me, though, that the websites are crashing because we went through this with the unemployment system website. I mean, come on, We gotta get these websites. Work in this state. I understand you've got to figure there's gonna be a huge surge in demand up front. They never seem to be able to hold that kind of Traffic. I don't know. So there's that and then also the big question, because states get toe pick how they're going. Tol Strip Butte. These vaccines and in Florida we're doing 65 Plus after obviously the health care workers got theirs. So it's 65 plus, which means that some at risk frontline workers, some people who Like, Let's say you work in a grocery store, and you have documented serious underlying condition That puts you at severe risk for the most dire consequences of this coronavirus. That means you have to wait. Is that the right way to go about it? I think you could make a case for both ways. So all of it of the phones again. 809 69 93 52 809 69 93 52. I'll start with Alan in Bradenton. Alan, Thanks for the call. Hi. How you doing? Happy New Year to you, Alan. Happy New Year.

"I'm Ryan Gorman, and we have some great conversations lined up for you. First, I'll talk to the U. S surgeon general who has an update on the current Corona virus outbreak happening across the country. Then I'll check in with an emergency room doctor about his experience receiving the visor, covert 19 vaccination, and finally, we'll talk about the impact of the panda. Comic on nursing homes and long term care facilities to get things started. I'm joined right now by the U. S. Surgeon general Dr Jerome Adams. Dr Adams. Thanks for taking some time to talk to us, And I guess the best place to start is with whatever the big messages are that you want to remind people of as we wrap up this holiday season and head into the new year. Well, two words, they're important. Vaccines and vigilance and vaccines are incredibly important, because we know people are fatigue. We know they need spoke, and in this season of hope. We have now to back scenes that have been authorized for use, and we're beginning to vaccinate the vulnerable people in nursing homes where vaccinating health care workers and that is a good thing. That means the light switch, which is not a dimmer, which is not unlike the dimmer switch is starting to slowly be turned back on and I want people to know that, but I want them to also know that we have to be vigilant. Because there's no point having a finish line if we don't if we stop running if we don't get everyone across until the end and so things you can think about this holiday season. I always say the safest thing to do if they send it, just with the immediate members of your household period point blank. Everyone needs to know that especially in the surge, but I also want people to know that even if you choose not to spend or can't spend it, just within your household, there are ways to be safer. I don't want you to just throw your hands up in the air and so go to CDC doctor. Look up the chips for holiday gathering right on the main stage, but some simple things you can do here in warm weather climate you could do outdoors instead of indoors, You could open windows and have plenty of ventilation. Make sure there's lots of hand.
