And that's these strong men leaders, obviously advocate violent the idea of. Punching people and I'm going to knock him out. And there was a fear that I was taking this kind of eligible character Kingman what would happen when there's an audience non audience. Townhall meeting, and they've got guns. Right. And in fact, at the end of the first session, and we did to one of the guys said now, I know why you took out guns away from us. Why he goes because we would use. Oh my God. We realized that we did that back. We did two recordings of and the I took their guns away. And it was kind slow reduce we had a body go there. And he said, listen, I've prepared this thing few it's a clipboard, and it's bulletproof. He goes if somebody who's gone out, I don't get time and start shooting just put this. In front of in front of war. Of my heart or my head. Because because that's the size of the clipboard dealing with what I. And then so we did the first one and people getting very angry with threatening violence. And then we read us we're going do the second one. We couldn't take everyone's gone away or they keep guns in their home. And so I have the crew said listen this Chelm that this might get violent on. So if you you've actually choose we didn't said raw than uptown into team if you want to stay right down here. And otherwise, we were with taking taking the rest of you. Oh my God. So we did it again. Remember, there was one guy who's going to and the front of the crowd, and I go where are you from Sarah goes, I'm from hell? That hell Arezzo. Where exactly is he was one of the funny? One interview with Nyerere with the exit any general exit didn't make it into the show.

You know, and they die young that ever concern of yours, and he's like, not really. And then at the end, he reveals that he was the attorney general not torture for drug gang. I feel to save. I thought you were the head torture of drug cartel. But it's worse. Your publicly look say, well, we got so many of these grey wants to cover.

"I always had a dream which was to make one classic comedy. And I did one movie prior to borat, which was the allergy movie, and I didn't find it completely satisfying booths. It was not based in reality. And so I came to America and actually one of my first meetings was with Jim Brooks the legend. Yes, I was tuned him by the Jamie. And I said, listen, I just wish that it would be possible to make a reality movie. Bam. Fortunately, it's not. And he said, well, we don't ever say it's not want you come back tomorrow. And let's spend a few hours in the room and just see if it's possible and stolen spending a couple of sessions, which Imbros. And we just thought thinking about is it possible to have a reality movie where unwitting suspects interviewees a moving the plot forward. So can you that was the theory? Could we get people who didn't realize they were in a movie to actually create plot twists? And we actually didn't even know whether that would happen until the first sheeting Bora. I mean, always have went into FOX. Okay. This is going to work to reality me real people are going to move the plot forward, and I was kind of bullshitting I it was a complete Rhys and it worked. So that was the risk of Borer. So how did you handle this idea of now becoming not just famous in England? But around the world where people know your characters everywhere. They don't really know you that's been. I think deliberate thing for you to not let them know to not let them see you as yourself out in the world that much even when you're accepting an award at something like the BAFTA pertain awards twenty thirteen which I bet you. I've never seen something so funny, but it's not even really it's not you. It's you doing a schtick as quote, unquote, you where people should look at YouTube the funniest thing I've ever seen in. Award show and my job is to cover award shows. But the point is that what's the thought process behind guarding yourself that much? There was never really deserve me to become famous. I wanted to have my cake and eat it too. Which I chief for awhile. I mean, unfortunately in the days of iphones. It's almost impossible. So and Instagram and paparrazzi. I managed to achieve it for number of years with the first few years in England. Allergy was a household name. I mean, even the Queen Mother at the age of one hundred one was a fan. You know, it's the prince said that she at Christmas dinner. She said we. But nobody knew what I like said as I kept myself out of any public appearances. I didn't go to any celebrity functions didn't go to any award shows, and that kind of eventually change actually, probably with the globe by winning the globe that was for Barra in early two thousand seven for them to recognize it was something unlike what they'd ever recognized before because they're really unbidden anything like it before the idea of again, a guy as a character interacting with real people. And I think another thing though, that happened after that very soon after that was that you started to peer in high profile movies as other people's characters which was interesting because I don't know that everyone even knew that you could or wanted to be an actor not realizing that obviously a massive amount of acting goes into playing these characters but just to remind people Sweeney Todd for timber in two thousand seven Hugo for Martin Scorsese in two thousand eleven laser out for. Tom Hooper in two thousand twelve for a while. It was looking like, you might also do Freddie Mercury. Now. We're hearing Chicago, Sara like the point is you are every bit as much an actor as anybody else. Right. Who coined I mean, I try occasionally I've been very very lucky, and I've had the support of incredible director. So when you with school say you're going to put in a good performance because he's no he's going to protect you and the same with timber and Tom Hooper and. Even Adam McKay who two nights with.

But they had my costume inside the ball. I needed my cost and foolishly we made the movie with no double any had one costume so deal cheese. And then I can hear the sirens coming and in the end jump into the call, and you know, lie on the floor and the ball goes past the place. I'm literally in town for for ages. Eventually recovered the eventually we did. I mean, it was in the police station. But yeah, I mean, they were the Bruno cage find they were a lot of kind of situations where it's close. Yeah. And I know, you know, your interview style, which obviously is going to come back into play when we are talking about the who is America characters very shortly. I think it was probably cultivated with Ali g and with Ali g I guess the logistically the way you would get somebody to sit down with you people would not think would just sit down with a guy that looks like Ali G, and they don't know much about is it, correct? That you would basically walk in with the crew. And then they wouldn't even realize until it was just starting that. You're actually the got it's doing the inner.

Of Todd lives to bear firearms at school writing on the show is Stevens I took, from the Washington Post, who joins us on the KOMO news. I see but thanks for, being with us today I guess the first question is what's the. Point what's the point of this show is it just to try to. Make other people look kind of silly Question and I think a lot? Of his critics say this is sort of ambush comedy at its worst Someone who does he say target a lot of. Republican politicians targeting Democrats others as well but there's, a certain sort of seen shaming that's happening here I would say that he doesn't have to be made. That this is a guy he wants to pose a playboy Of American leadership at American industries and the fact that you know he's doing it as. You say white by. Getting UPS as for three year old gun ownership to be led by some fairly August politicians I think they play This is on Showtime they already have kind of a niche audience, those who are willing to pay a premium for its content is this show maybe too big of a. Risk somebody like Showtime Well it's interesting it's certainly. I don't think they would get on a on a on a sort of prestige cable. Network we're talking about an FX AMC only.

In this for the show Talk about Obama I g show which was on the floor Those those shows were good Ten twelve fifteen, years ago I think Laura If I'm not mistaken Kim on thousand six, so I think he does on the following but. He's been a little, bit off the radar he's done, acting noted, but hasn't done this kind of you know put on having makeup and impersonate. People to public officials in a long. Time and so The hope at. Least from the people I've talked to know, about this thing that he's going to bring in. A new fan base, while building on his own one, but it, needs to be a risk in Albuquerque because I think a lot of people. Don't know A lot of. Younger viewers has again this sort of bio.

"News quote i said something at the hearings yesterday about purple hearts which another network named after a four legged animal has made a big deal about i regret using the term purple heart i never thought purple heart should have been given to agent struck steve cohen them onto say he was speaking metaphorically and not literally but folks you don't toss a purple heart around metaphorically it is way too much symbolism and meaning for those that truly understand the nature of this award it is typical for the democrats to try to trivialize it by the way the fraternal order of police chief in columbus ohio has denied politics played a role in stormy daniels arrest of course she was arrested last week and then the charges dropped later that same day for allegedly touching the pay patrons and vice versa at a strip club in columbus ohio police chief went on to say that he did not pad his arrest statistics did not count as two busts in that particular case you're wondering look i just got from oslo mela new sasha baron cohen series america remember we talked about this last week he duped sarah palin into an interview by posing as a disabled veteran and the veterans military widows and others are slamming cohen for personnel a wounded warrior cohen and cbs and showtime are now claiming that he did not pose as a wounded warrior but i have a tendency to believe sarah palin and others including the latest is now they're they've punked a bunch of republican congressman and retired congressmen into this arming three year old's in kindergarten and the way that several of those congressman said they were asked to read a script as part of a comedy routine and so they they went along with it and he's he's using that as proof that these congressmen were serious about the program called kinder guardians laughable it's not even and finally apparently there was a controversy over a rape skit in this in this tv series so he plays an israeli terrorism expert by the name of aaron murad who says it's not rape if it's your wife and this is you know what the left thinks is funny these days i don't think a lot of people are laughing hi trump putin summit is still underway and again this is a well been going on for quite a bit now so at least for what i guess about forty five minutes or so there's one thing that he's not bring up at all was russian meddling in our elections he talked about a number of things that they were going to be talking about but the russian meddling was not one of them how do we know that because the summit or meaning it's still underway because he just had a presser before the meeting actually started and he said that there are discussions will involve trade the military missiles nuclear weapons in china and he did not mention russia's meddling in the us election in fact i had the sound up when he was making the announcement all right so then we'll see if he if he just glossed over that or whether he intends to bring it up or not have to wait and see post meeting presser which is scheduled probably within the next forty five minutes to hour or so we shall see how that works is there a double standard for tv personalities who comment on politics one woman thinks so and she's written a brand new book she's going to be our guest in about ten minutes so stay tuned for that and see ferrari author of crump divine intervention or not she is things that roseanne barr got a bum rap and she happens to be a former miami dade metro police officer and she was black and a radio personality as well so she's going to join us in about ten minutes to talk about some of the double standards and the apocrypha see right now that the left and even some of the right as well are committing it's coming up on.

"To be to puck and i still don't believe you johnny depp in this film is playing the detective who like put it all together figured it out of because of course we need like some grizzled old white cop to save the day in this story and i hope he's playing all the guys from last podcast on the left like eddie murphy cut him the awesome yeah norbert that shit but he was apparently on the set of this movie just drunk a lot of the time which as we found out he's spending you know hundreds of thousands of dollars on wine every month there was a profile of him that we went over and rolling stone last week or the week before that was truly bleak and just almost like it was he is the physical embodiment of the corrupting influence of fame in hollywood he's literally like turning into a vampire like he doesn't come out during the daylight drunk and stoned at all times and just cracking himself up while his bodyguards and professional shafir just like you're the man johnny and anyways that sounds like the movie right what you have a story that's the movie yeah but anyways the they were filming and a location scout tried to shut down the shooting because they weren't permitted to go any later he had already extended the shoot by an hour the director was like yeah why don't you try and tell johnny depp that we're not gonna shoot because he's crazy and presumably wasted so the location chief then went over to a cop and was like hey i don't wanna fuck with johnny depp he's crazy but we shut this down johnny depp like overheard and just ran up and start beating the guy and like screaming at him punched him in the ribs a couple times and then offered him one hundred thousand to punch him back like here here's a hundred thousand dollars punch me back man what did he go to the four year old school of fucking mediation that's like you do in your kid where you like you've accidentally like like make your little cousin cry and you're like okay hit me hit me hit right and it's all good yeah also there are emerging details about the shawn mccoy that will probably get into another day but there might be some serious benghazi shit going on with that dude but will will update that at a later time when more the details are official drake has broken a beatles record he now has seven top ten songs at the same time i think the beatles record was five and he now has seven of the top ten songs that paul so this raises a question like you know going into this culture like once we saw the streaming was happening i think the assumption was that our music tastes and music success was going to become more fragmented and niche because everybody can just get whatever music they want at the drop of a hat and you know i think people assumed similar stuff about businesses like small websites could succeed or small businesses could succeed by throwing their business up on ebay and instead we're trending toward a world where like facebook google and amazon and apple own everything and everyone listens to the same music it's weird that like a lack of barriers to entry make it so that everyone is all about the same stuff yeah i mean to me i i know a lot of people like disease mean that drake is bigger than the beat nls no i don't think so i think it just drake is in an era where though the nature of the music business and like how the charts work benefit him greatly because even when you look at the songs that are on here like nightmare what nonstop god's plan in my feelings i'm upset emotionless don't matter to me like those aren't even the best drake songs like from his catalog no you know and he they're not even the best songs on that album i'm upset is the worst song on that album just he released it i as a single and it has a degrassi video and so everybody's like oh it's cool right and then part of the and we'll people don't realize is like streams count like towards the billboard charts too and that can come from youtube or whatever so you have a video that's like a degrassi reunion and a lot of people start watching it that's going to help the fucking chart performance.

"Wherever you get your favorite shows rated pg thirteen for explicit content and we're back and there's some news coming out of one of our shit whole country yeah shit hole that is of france and the us's creation basically in a lot of the western world namely france and the us and haiti i don't know if anyone's seen the news i don't have you guys seen this over the we see about this in haiti haiti basically erupted into violence over the weekend once the government announced a price hike of around like thirty eight percent somewhere between thirty and fifty one percent some areas on fuel and this isn't a country where gas like four dollars a gallon already there and people are living off around three dollars per day so you do the math when there was a fuel hike these people are eventually at a breaking point and yes it turned into a huge demonstrations and protests and people blockading the streets and stuff but i just wanted to like bring people's attention to haiti and sort of understanding again because the just sort of like when we were talking about ms thirteen i kind of briefly touched on the us at hand in el salvador and things like that and it's important to know what the us is history is in haiti as well haiti is a very unique nation in that it was the first nation to be started by former slaves who basically took back their own freedom from the slave owners so after you know being inspired by the writings of thomas paine and the french and american revolutions to song over tour he led a slave rebellion to take control of the island from the french and he did successfully in france because they wanted like their very own coney you know paradise for white people they sent napoleon to go fucking take the island back and he failed an america defended them right because it was based on their ideal so they were super great oh yeah no but my goodness southern plantation owners were like don't let this happen here don't even tell anybody about that this happened they were scared that the exact same thing would happen and so and you can tell just sort of the way they basically financially ruined haiti from the beginning so in just the most it's the manner of fucker is is on a whole other level so since the french couldn't take the island back by force they basically like within two decades after hey regaining independence they demanded that they get reverse reparations basically saying haiti owes us one hundred fifty million francs because all the slave owners lost all that money when the slaves freed them selves you owe us that money was the reasoning behind it although small business owners yeah exactly and so in the us supported these demands and basically like what told other countries like you don't recognize haiti until they pay all this money back so haiti's only option was to basically go along with this extortion scheme by the french and when they couldn't make payments they had to borrow and french banks were more than happy to give them money and you know and i really really fair interest rates to no fees and things like that and basically put them in a hundred twenty two year period of debt where they basically like one hundred fifty million francs is the equivalent of twenty one billion dollars now by the time haiti made their last payment in nineteen forty seven nineteen forty seven was the last payment she's they were basically paying that money to a us bank that bought all their debt from the french now you might say what bank is well at the time it was called the city bank of new york and it was founded by moses taylor who made of lots of money smuggling slaves into cuba when slavery was outlawed in the united states or the slave trade was outlawed that's where this man made all his money this bank is now called city group or citibank okay just so you know where all that money if you do bank if you bank with them read up on their history because i don't know if you know like most of wall street was built on a lot of slave trading so basically the fact is this whole scheme of paying back these reparations put haidian very impossible situ relation to get on their feet and a lot of times we'll look at all the corruption over there.
