"You hopeful. Do you have hope that we will that. Silenced feel good. Well i really i they wanna think about your question and i'm really trying to. I don't want to answer you know. Some sort of pat answer. I'm really trying to think about whether i'm hopeful. I you know last week tuesday morning in through wednesday night on the heels of the georgia satellites. I felt so hopeful. I felt so hopeful that a state like georgia all its history and also complexities as close as it was and i wish it hadn't been even that close but still that we were moving in the right direction and i don't mean democrat or republican i mean right versus wrong that you know that arc of history was even slowly gradually bending toward justice back. Gave me hope that a black man and a jewish man could be elected senator from the southern state and georgia deep in the confederacy that gave me hope and the fact that this white supremacist rebellion came on the heels of that moment does not feel like an accident and i am trying to remember the for all the people who voted for trump for all people who supported them for all the people who participated in those riots. Cheer them on. There are more americans on the other side and that that we are growing and that is in fact what is the greatest threat. The that is motivating those extremists. So they're they're they're fantasies. Their fears their conspiracies are motivated by our reality that in fact we are becoming a more perfect union a more inclusive union democratic that. When i can get myself there. When i can remember that i can hold onto. That gives me hope that gives me and hope dam. That was perfect. I don't want to say anymore. Sally kohn the.

He's a diplomat is he believes in diplomacy. Yes and i think he also was. What joe biden's greatest gift is to be able to read the room. He is a master politician in that particular sense. And i think he knows that our national appetite for violence imperialism or is at an all time low And i either way. What i do think is true again especially because there's no personal history That does give me some. Comfort and confidence is that he would be intensely thoughtful careful and reluctant to send any anyone's children into war. Aw as his own sunday. This episode is brought to you by magic spoon.

"Think a couple of things traditional there obviously suits like that against alex jones. There's an. I think that those are impactful I do think platforms having clear lines and enforcing woman cross is also important. But that is our case. By case situations as for the larger dynamic player you ultimately well ultimately. I think we have done a poor job. And this is this is this is. This is doesn't answer the whole thing but what is true is there needs to be some mechanism in platforms. Essentially me the way people. Most people get their information right now which lets people distinguish between fact and opinion and distinguishes news sources. And you're starting to see some movement of that. You know when you go to tweet an article right now and asked if you i wanna read the article points out of what the tweet says. It's been contended by news reports so we're moving in that direction. I think that's that's right. We also have to actually reinvest in. Just have to reinvest in civic literacy. We have to reinvest in media literacy society in that. should also be the job of news agencies. I remember being when every time i would be on. Cnn in particular which has a you know. Unlike msnbc it has a history of reporting still has a great reporting team. I inevitably get multiple tweets from people saying you are the most biased reporter. I've ever seen to explain very nicely. Not a reporter and there's different but we don't. We never explained to people right. Oh that person's accommodator that person's reporter and now we put them on tv together. Sometimes there are panel together. You've got a reporter and you've got coming into the same thing. Isn't that up to each network though. I mean what you describe lane to. The described with twitter is great. Yes they're starting to flag things you can't they they send you the reminder before you re tweets something. You haven't read this article yet. Are you sure you wanna re tweet it. That's that's great. But that's up to the private organization and the reason that people are moving to this parlor to this. Gab is specifically because those companies don't require that they read the article before they re tweeted and the reason in part that i mean it. Cnn could do everything you're explaining you're you're describing right now and it would be phenomenal. But unless all of the news organizations said barry broadly and boldly is our opinion show and this is our new show. That wouldn't matter what it. Well i again. It is not. There's no silver bullet here right. There's no suitable at an i. Yes maybe on some level. The genie is out of the box. But i do think jeannie can be constrained right by civic leaders media leaders coming together and decided to do. What's best so i think. A number of strategies are paramount right. There should be you know when you post articles from certain certified news sites on facebook. They should be You know get a green checkmark as opposed to other sources right. I mean there are specific things like they had people come together in yes. Government can play a role the fcc and others in encouraging requiring this. We could go back to You know some unraveling of deregulation. That reagan did which contributed to this so their policy pieces to. It's to the other thing. I have to say is is this also comes from a this is not unrelated to in certainly comes from the divestment in public education right the increasing gap in a critical thinking skills. Right that that is that is this is. We're getting the country which could force people think critically and lead you but we're getting the country corporate right-wing leach right. They were happy to add three marcus decision a stupid public so they can be over here distracted by crazy theories while we're over here exploiting them and squeezing every dime out of people as we can and so reinvesting in public education across the board including in rural america quality and not just public education that treats people as widgets to put into factories and to line rich people's pockets but education that actually invests in people as people as citizens as thinkers creative thinkers critical thinkers. That is a long game right but long-term that you know the the the the only way we ultimately solve this when we have people who refuse to be suckered into the garbage right so it's all of those things it's not one thing we should. We're one thing. This is not an easy problem to solve. This episode is sponsored by apostrophe a prescription skin care company for people that are ready to take their acne seriously prescription. Acne treatment really works. But it's hard to get. You gotta get a prescription. You gotta go to see a doctor. You gotta sit in line with the pharmacy all that stuff. That is until apostrophe game along apostrophe really makes it easy to see a board certified dermatologist on line and with this rise of all these interesting online companies being able to get your skin care. Online is something that i think is really sorta genius. Because if you've got acne if you've got skin problems being able to sit in a doctor's office or having to sit in a doctor's office while you got zits all over your face. Nobody wants to do that. You can do this stuff from the privacy of your home and they make it really easy to see a board certified dermatologist. You get treated immediately and your medications are delivered right to your house so you don't have to go up to the pharmacist was it's all over your face and be like. Please give me medicine all you do. is you. Fill out a posh online questionnaire about your skin concerns. Give them a little bit of medical history. Snap a few selfish fees which we all know everybody's good at doing nowadays and the dermatologists gets back to you with customized treatment plan tailored just for you and the best part about it is possibly actually offers not just topical but also the oral medications which can treat you from the inside out a net stuff really really works. They treat acne but they can also of help you with all your other skin-care goals like getting rid of readiness. If you're like me you got a lot of readiness wrinkles. Not i have those. But maybe do they take care of all that stuff. You don't even need to schedule an appointment and it even comes a little cute postcard and stickers to personalize your prescription bottle and you don't need to go.

"In fact and i i can't. It's late so i can't think of a better phrase for this.

Is it gonna come down to someone. Suing newsmax or alex jones for libel or someone suing them. You know the family of the slain police officer. At capitol hill suing them for inciting violence against their family member. You know the death of their family member of what what what is going to govern this stuff.

"Many heart very hard. That's an understatement Do you know. Try to remember that Other people don't get to define mark critical values for me and my principles values are that all people are equal and deserve equal humanity and respect. And if i really really really actually believe that and for instance believe that they should treat me with respect to even if they don't agree with my choices or beliefs or identity than i have to unless i'm hip grit.

"That's what like look. It's there's there's more realistic and the numbers more pessimistic. Way of looking at that right one. is you know. Ironically even though you know a people from both sides finding ways to talk and learn grow from each other and frankly that's not to be both sides asked about this in any way shape or form but like to not write off half the country but find a way to transform the half that country and bring it along into a future that is not only more democratic implore elastic and multiracial. But also by the way better for them and impersonal and financial interests and health and wellbeing.

Twelve years ago Even for even four two years ago. It's just we've gone off the event we've really have gone off the deep end. Well one of the reasons that i wanted to talk to you. This week is because i. I mean i am not necessarily on a on a policy front a moderate. I think i'm pretty damn progressive. But i get mistaken for a moderate allot know people think hundred percent of the accident. I didn't even know. I had one. But i get mistaken for people for moderate a lot because i am willing to say i'm willing to like republicans. I'm willing to be friends with people who i disagree with and i have found over the past year or so. They're not that many deaths we've had on this show. Who are that good at that. And you're one of the only people who i can think of in the media world who i think has been maybe you and van jones also who are who are good at recognizing that even i'm even though i may completely disagree with someone else.

"In her two thousand eighteen book the opposite of hate. Sally kohn takes readers on an insightful and funny discovery of how we as humans can harbor so much hate and how we overcome our differences and our disagreements and find common ground. She released that book two years ago. So i'd honestly like to know if she still thinks it's possible i'm clay can and this episode is politicains episode under the trump presidency. Yes a milestone a milestone for sure the final episode under the trump presidency. Let's just let that sink in. But while the end of this administration make many people happy it certainly caused a great deal of for many other americans as well so as we look towards a new beginning under a president. Joe biden if we don't attempt to make the same efforts to understand and empathize with our political opposites in the same way that sally kohn endeavoured during her years as a writer activist commentator for both fox news and cnn. We've made find that division in our country doesn't really change that much under a biden administration. Either so sally kohn. After the rhetoric on display from president trump and his allies in the months since the election. Do you still feel. There are ways to heal division in the country. Through discussion and empathy do the events the capitol on january sixth represented rap bottom inflection point. How should joe biden best respond to donald trump and his supporters in order to heal the nation. Divide and holy crap. How the heck are we going to get along you know.

"It doing so great your Impressions Alison I just think that pulling is so flawed that Malia of of like a power, we give it because of who their polling, the fact that like trump supporters are just not going to take part in polls. Trump's supporters might just like be ashamed that they're voting for trump and not give the right answer like also just how much. These national polls don't matter because of the Electoral College. So in all the battleground states, the lead is significantly less. And, that's really the only states where it matters. So it's like, yeah, like okay. So nationally, he's got like ten points, but if you go to like. Pennsylvania or something. It's like two points of with with the you know like right chance for their neck and neck. So I I just think that it's a really dangerous game to be like Oh we've got this like, I think the Democrats need to be acting as a we don't because I don't think we have it and the moment where like oh Biden GonNa win less people are going to vote less people are going to go through the hassle of it and we're just GONNA lose support. So I think that we need to push the narrative of like, oh. My God he might win again we have to do everything. We can not to let that happen absolutely absolutely an, but I do want to. Add a little note of optimism. Because, we're all doing optimism. We are very made, which is that in Georgia, for example. We think a lot about how the polls are wrong and in a way that could only hurt Democrats. In Georgia, they have managed to register over seven hundred and fifty thousand more people to vote at the voters are buying large people of color. So they're also by and large Democrats. And and and polls are doing likely voters that do not include this new influx of voters that have been registered so for so polls Georgia may undercount Democrats because of this new influx I'm just there are possibilities out there that said we should live in fear I mean I. Don't disagree with that. Sally. What do you think I love how? Like you don't pay attention to the news for Week Negi and you're a fucking optimist just that goes to. That's all takes look. I mean part of the problem is. There a two camps right there. Well, I guess there's three people who? Were GonNA live and die by polls forever. There are people who in their name is Natan Labor right I know there are people who? Like myself who definitely thought like there were problems with the polling industrial complex well, before twenty sixteen namely that it tries to sort of Gamma Phi an predict defy out an election which really includes human variables and and it takes it takes a certain amount of power away from people I think to sort of say Oh, it looks like it's going to be this way. Oh, it looks like it's going to be that way well. Then in a country where votes frankly don't matter enough as is period and then especially depending on the state you're in and so forth. It just as disempowering think. And then there's a camp that post twenty sixteen at. Oh. My Gosh the polls wrong and actually the polling the way polls are weighted won't get into the whatever's of it but like changed a lot of a lot of the polls seeing now. Are Actually reweighted in a way that they believe corrects for twenty six what they didn't see coming in two thousand sixteen. Yeah. The short answer who the, fuck? No. I mean, like, do we this is the problem is like do we remember and then you get like these people will be like, Oh, well, this guy who predicted every elections the fuck knows nobody fucking knows. Here's what I do know. What Alison says, right. If we believe our side, whatever site is is likely to win. It depresses turnout. We I, know that's true. Number two we know for fucking sure that Republicans including trump are going to do everything they. Sorry Sally. Can. You repeat that one more time? If we. if we think by, let me be more explicit. Yeah. Get on the priceless and progressives think the Biden is a shoe in. For a landslide day. They depresses turn ice and especially when there's a pandemic and there's all these other hurdles devoting. And especially when by the way, there are fucking four swing voters left in the entire country and. Focus way too much on them and need to focus on energizing, turning up their base. Now, if they had done that a long, if we'd understood this, we might have had a different nominee but whatever even still we need to be energizing turning out our base and not fighting over those four or five can swing voters, and when you think you're the what we need to win are unlikely and infrequent voters from our side, and when they think it's more likely to be a landslide in favor of they will not turn out. So we know that number one. Number two that trump and the Republicans are going to do everything they can to suppress. What they believed to be Democratic voters and thus suppress voters young voters, voters of color and contest the election if it is anything other than a landslide and probably even that right so. Then, it becomes even more important for people to turn out now, we'll tell you this. Even. All that said. So I. I'm from around Allentown Pennsylvania. It's the seventh congressional district in PA one of the most hotly contested. Congressional races right now. District that trump narrowly won but that Susan Weil Democrat turned one for the first time in some time, but is now facing a really. Tight race for re-election. When I was home this weekend visiting my folks. Without a doubt, and this is not the only place in the country I've experienced this without a doubt more trump signs. Then in at the same time in two thousand sixteen. Now, what does that mean? Does that mean people feel safer to show their support does that mean support has grown? It's hard to know either way. It's disturbing. You would think in this moment where we say, oh, but he's you know we're talking a very contested district in a very contested state. The are lot of. Suggestions that the whole election will hinge on Pennsylvania so What does that suggest? It suggests that in this election where supposedly he's on the ropes. Right and How could he possibly win reelection given the buffoonery upon top of buffoonery and now of global pandemic and then he attacked you know what? There are still people who are either. So still proud of him or newly proud of him that they are flying multiple flags in their front yards big ass flags by the way. And I don't see that many by anybody. That's why I just think say out of carry. I Can't tell you can. Actually it's really I.

"Number one. Let's talk about the pandemic CA- really don't want to. You know what I mean. I'm a normal person and here's what's weird. Also kind of I'm leaning on you guys extra hard today because i. Fully tuned out for the last week like I. Could. You could tell me you know. The Georgia and Amal broke up I will have had no knowledge of it. They deny I don't know did they write in this last week that didn't happen twenty twenty can't give me more. How did it feel to unplug like that? It's felt pretty good I mean I can see how being uninformed citizen. Feels good sometimes. Like we do it the time we should have a little dose of knowledge. Every day I don't think I. Think you should turn your notifications off and I think you should have taken the knowledge when you're prepared after your Morning Cup of coffee and only for a short period of time but it's good to like take a week in like now have even that just to like not have any doses. Let's let's figure out what's going on with pandemic. One of the first things headlines I saw coming back in. To the world was that a bunch of drug maker sign a pledge that they would quote stand with science and not put for the vaccine that hasn't been thoroughly vetted. Why did they do that alley it. So twenty twenty, right. I know you just just okay like I know half the country doesn't believe in science apparently. You know the idea that basic. Fundamental human survival should back to science not politics. would. have been a fairly assumption you know for the first three hundred odd years of America's existence. But now now twenty twenty being what it is is under question and so the idea that you might have and I think that's the. Overt and covert implication of this that you would have A. President and a political party that would pressure. A remedy to market for political gain. A just so. Super Fitting. In the housekeepers twenty twenty by the way after you didn't add this and your thing. But after like it just it just exploded today the recordings God love Bob Woodward recorded his conversations with trump trump saying he deliberately downplayed the virus early on. So you're going to downplay the virus and the signs early on and then you're going to shortchange. Can. All see him doing it the science now to get. To get a remedy so that you can hopefully save your electoral prospects. I mean good Lord wait a second. Just come out. Today I did not see it on. Your Sanity. Sane. So Hey. Did you hear the recording yeah. And he's like, yeah, it's killing everybody. It's bad Mike. and. Then he's like, yeah, you know. I. I'm downplaying it though because I don't want to start a panic which like Riley one hand a more competent leader I, understand the motivation. Like we've got this under control as we do this and this, it'll be okay. But he was being like no one will die. It's fine. Downplaying just lying lying right right right right. Right after his. National Security team at said, this is going to be the. Single greatest domestic threat during your presidency. Like I mean I. It's it's very clear and the point at which you know there's a two month period in between the one data point. The other right. So it's like two months after he realized the severe gravity of it, he's still telling Bob Woodward. On tape. That he was trying to downplay the severity of it, I mean this just like wow. Is he no the. The Disney Bob Woodward. Talk to him. Doesn't act story I'm. Missing. Wow and there were I mean? No. It's okay. I can't wait. He's GonNa Start Bashing Bob Woodward, and you know. Attacking the guy in the recordings who's him not have? He thinks Bob Woodward is like an intern at the post. Just he's like who is this I thought it was a kid that I was. Okay. So thanks for breaking that news to me. But can let's get back to the Place de went off no no, that's that's part of it. Now, I didn't know Let's get back to the pledge. Now, there's a lot of things around this vaccine allison. Do you think that there's going to be a vaccine October surprise and if it does happen, would you be less confident in that vaccine? Absolutely, I wouldn't take it. I I. I understand why they did the pledge I. Actually if I had any trust in pharmaceutical companies, I'd be like, Oh, that's actually a good thing but pharmaceutical companies are historically horrible. For so many reasons but I understand why they had to do it because like it's clear that trump and the FDA is pushing for this release before the election that people could be like, oh, trump's saved us now we can vote for him. But the reality is that all of these phase three testing which just takes a long amount of time and like you reading the articles that we sent for the show like. You need thirty thousand people pretty much per tests and these tests that are happening I. don't even think that they all even have the amount of volunteers that they need like it's just not. Feasible that it could happen. Correctly there is a chance that they would do this thing called like the emergency use authorization, right? That's where things get really scary for me because then the FDA is approving it but they're approving it under like less restrictions. Yeah. So like the had to prove less for it to be like authorized but the reality is like even if it happens before, let's say they're like, okay, we approve this vaccine before. November third, you still have to like implement it. Out to like all of America Right Matt Rollout is going to take months and Mo- yeah. There's also a roll out of a vaccine that's potentially dangerous but things like the thing we don't talk about enough is if you put out a bum vaccine, you are spending and expending all of those resources of which are very limited it's actually hard to make vaccines it's hard to. Make them at scale and quickly, and so let's say in that interim period, an actual effective vaccine were to come into the space. You wouldn't be able to mobilize quickly with an effective vaccine and the problem of course is having trump and the trump administration overseeing all this. It's been clear that he has a very low threshold for what he will inject in his own body. Right. So really think that he took that I don't believe that I don't know but the point is or like the whole like let's put ultraviolet light and Greg. So many drugs his body has different tolerance than the. Think like and then on top of which by the way is. We have got into the fact that you have now the government giving money massive amounts of taxpayer money to private corporations. Where if they failed to create a vaccine than we the taxpayers are on our. Losers here. But if they succeed in creating a vaccine, those companies get an exclusive patent and are going to rake it in I mean this just and then the whole like you know, it's another layer of the sort of profiteering and the corruption, the kind of corruption, right? From his only expanded can I inject a note of optimism here? Which I? Okay The thing that actually first of all I come from a family of doctors and so I have like a deep faith in. Medicine and medical science just because I've lived. I've grown up with it. My whole life I've seen in action. It's been wonderful. It's like you know I've seen family members get.

"Writes a headline why people judge one wants to fuck it. Results haven't even been announced and I just think this whole thing was never I just wrote. This is a a plug for me to read my column in the Progressive This this month. It is called the Electoral Zombie Apocalypse. And it is about how these primaries are God awful and and verging on anti-democratic so like oh you mean like how they just suddenly change the democratic debate rules so that the billionaire could get on the state. Yes yes we can talk about that but my so. What's just talking about Iowa and how this was handled? Are you guys angry as I am. It's okay if you're not I I mean I would say angry but it was the Iowa thing for like you know when you try to teach your grandmother use an iphone. I was just uh-huh we're GONNA use this new technology to count the votes and there were. Oh grandma doesn't know how to make this work now all screwed and this is one of the most important primary. It's on our my column. How that's fucking on saying saying? Don't get me wrong. I just want to say to all my friends in Iowa. I've spent a lot of time. I did a lot of organizing in Iowa des I organized a President Forum. Two thousand seven. Everyone one did what did a wonderful time talk. And I don't think they have any business having this much disproportionate power. It's really win our political system. In fact if it were up to me you would have all the properties on one day. You wouldn't have a weeding same with New Hampshire. Why do we have two of the whitest eight? Uh sorry it's totally true. It's it's all right Laurie Laurie. You are a trump was talking. You wanted Her right now. She hates him interest. It's baffling right. Yes because I mean and this is a democracy. It's supposed to be right back so you have ninety percent of the time a blue state is gonNA maybe blue and a red state is going to be read and then you have those and haters got four or five people in like Pennsylvania Florida Michigan. Yeah Ohio sometimes and maybe Wisconsin but those are the places that decided who gets to be president. How is that okay? How what do people just accept that as part of a democracy and again I wanNA point out because I've heard we complain about the Electoral College before and I challenge listeners? figure out if the National National Popular Vote Interstate Compact is happening in your state. There's multiple states that have of sign onto this legislation that have passed this legislation. It means that we can circumvent the Electoral College. If enough states joined the National National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. All we need is the equivalent of two hundred seventy electoral college votes. And Right. Now we're at like one hundred ninety six or something like that is fucking possible. And if it's not being considered in your state should you be the person to go to your local elected official and be like. Please please bring this bill to do okay just legislative floor just to put this some perspective. Berman pointed who's a big reporter for the nation on electoral voting rights and Electoral Justice and he pointed out yesterday. That the senators who voted to impeach trump represent eighteen eighteen million more Americans than those who voted to acquit. Oh my God so the fast sell certain people in our are and that's just one manifestation of this so when you look at the primaries when you look at the elections the simple fact that certain people in our country matter more and I mean we look at that we could say it matters. The donor class matters more than the non donor class. The primary state early primary states people matter Morton the right the people in swing states in general matter more than the people who are not incarcerated matter more than the people who are incarcerated who don't get to vote. I mean I can't I believe we're only at the point of deciding whether after you get out of prison you should get to vote when you're in. Prison and decisions are being made about affect her. Ah So and it's the same we have a democracy is so or even a Republican. This is so far. Fetched Not only to mention in that three hundred years of failure along the way but that we are not actively doing anything to fix the system but rather moving actively in the wrong direction. is You know absolutely completely and totally mad. I think that's statistics about the eighteen million more the people as maybe the most important thing that you'll hear on this podcast today that's so estimates. And and I I just WanNa say the other other fine frustrating thing is the delegate council again and as of this morning I don't know if I ia. There's time has also done some reporting the inconsistencies consistencies in the pre precincts that have been reported so even the results that we do have our kind of unclear as of now I guess so. The number number of delegates doesn't match the popular vote necessarily so there was a point at which I don't know where we are now confused but there was a point. At which Pete Buddha judge judge had the delegate count and Bernie popular popular vote and anyways Elizabeth. Warren should have had all..

The side deal We'll get into that in the next hour. You keep jumping ahead. What teasing very stay tuned for more? We're on this but I yeah I think I guess one thing I want to say tech. Technically about the whole thing is that I didn't think I thought I had already grieved the acquittal process and then it happened I they actually like you know asset because I think in the movie version Asian of this scenario there's like these handful of Republicans who have such a backbone and such like you know the belief in the Constitution a and you know just basic sense of morality and they come and they save us and the and that didn't happen so just like the beautiful Hollywood ending that I thinking in the deepest precinct of my soul. One percents of me really believed that the Hollywood ending. What's going to happen and it didn't happen so then I was depressed precinct of my soul beautiful? It was really that was lovely called podcast positive how to organize that precinct we caucus one thing though I can we just go back to number one for like two seconds because you know you are going too far but let's go back ship thing. We really didn't talk about Nancy ripping up the papers on. Let's talk about that really quick because if it falls in line with how what you were just saying about the extent of our partisanship ship and that right now. You feel like it's justified on the left. But where did you think what. What do you think of a move like that from Nancy? Pelosi is it is. Is it helpful so look I mean. Let's be clear she didn't like you know with a angry flourish in her tongue. Sticking out like Better Cohen who ripping off the actress to be caught on cow. Mild Scowl we say like what. Here's the thing I the only always going back and forth between my sort of like I don't I don't know Uber Civic America. Trying to be above all of it and also I am in it. I am a partisan I am an opinion on this so I find it outrageous in this Roman that Republicans are all edgy. Rip descript and they aren't they don't give a fuck that he didn't shake her hand. She put her hand out he. He didn't shake her hand. But I don't give a fuck about that but they care that she ripped up a piece of paper like right or for example. They don't care that he tried to coerce a a foreign government reading national security and the world of fuck up our elections kidding me. The sort of L. A. Law outraged Goddamn also think that the media has and fucking seventy percent to do with that because they're turning into a story look she made a statement. Can we just live in an age where that's just GonNa get you and it is slender for leaving. If I might let them live and die on on social media like it does does does on a gust. Newspaper need to weigh in on the ripping of the paper. I the media is social media. Now I hate this stuff. It's really sad isn't it. Yeah okay so guys. I don't know everybody buddy. How do you feel about the impeachment slash acquittal Do you feel about Nancy ripping papers. How do you feel about? The president betraying rang our country to work in government elections. You all these things Laddis now all of the social media that we also hate. Okay okay okay. Moving onto topic number three dishes ready for. Let's talk about so you guys fucking Iowa had a major fucking cock-up on reporting report. Their results did not come through election day nor did they completely come through the day after and in a baffling move. This is the thing that made me on fucking Inga believably. Angry battling move. They reported summa results. Sixty sixty two percents percent Salon.
