"And Healthcare. With me throughout the night. R. Bloomberg political contributors Rick Davis Harder at Stone Court capital and genius Xeno, professor of political science at Iona College. Let me start with the economy. Both of these candidates we know have been in debates before vice President Pence against Tim Kaine four years ago. Senator Harris against all the other Democratic candidates for president earlier this year, and this is what they have had to say about the economy in prior debates. In the wake of a season where American families are struggling in this economy. Under the weight of higher taxes and obamacare and the war on coal in the stifling avalanche of regulation coming out of this administration, Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine want more of the same. You measuring this greatness of this economy of yours, and he talks about the stock market. Well, that's fine. If your own stops so many families in America do not. Okay, let's go now to Rick Davis. Rick. It's one thing that strikes me What we just heard from vice President Pence in that last for you. Because how little has changed? He could say almost exactly the same thing. Just substitute in the names. Except right now, what it really needs to do is talk about what the next four years going to look like. And you gotta quit prosecuting a campaign against Hillary Clinton and start taking credit for the good things that have happened in the Trump administration, which we fully expect him to do, including their record on Cove it but also to point out that they've got an agenda for the next four years, something The top of the ticket. Donald Trump seems to not want to do. It's interesting, though. That agenda for the next four years doesn't include all the people in the country because Kamala Harris in that debate, you saw saying whose economy talking about here people don't have stocks. They're not doing so well. Yeah, absolutely. And I think that speaks to the divide that we've heard talked about in the country right between the people who are doing well in the stock market and the people on Main Street maybe not doing so well. But I do think Mike Pence is going to try to talk about this because they want to paint Kamala Harris as a radical liberal, the most liberal senator in the U. S Senate. Today. They're going to talk about her record, and they're going to try to warn people that if you elect the Democrats, your taxes will go up. We want to get you back to a pre covert economy, so I think that's going to be a message He's going to try to send over and over again. Rick there certainly one way which Senator Comma Harris stands out from any other vice special candidate ever. It's the first woman of color. She is an Indian American. She is a black American. That will be different. How does that cut tonight? I think that's going to be a big question, because we know gender and race are going to play out somehow tonight, But we really don't know how I mean. There's really no record. You could look back on with Vice President Pence To see how he's gonna handle it, and we know it's going to rise. Somehow we've seen how she handles it on the campaign trail before where she talks about her personal experiences. That little girl was me was a great moment in the debate that she had during the primaries. And so I would suspect that she will go there first. It's fascinating. How did they play action? I think Mike Pence has a tricky, tricky road tonight because, of course, they cannot alienate women, particularly suburban women. So anything he says that it all seems like he is being at all sexist, either in his tone, or his words or anything else is going to come back to them, so he's got to be very careful. I think he's gotta stick to the record, and I think he should focus on Vice President Biden and former vice president Biden, who obviously is at the top of this ticket. Ice presidential debates usually are about the top of the ticket. Not the two people. Running is the vice presidential Rick. Since last Friday, At least the news has been consumed with covert 19 in particular, President Trump Coming down going to the hospital coming back out. Until late today. I thought that maybe comma Harris would have to be a little careful attacking somebody who was sick. But then you have the president come out and do this tweet at this video that said, you know it was God's blessing. I got covert 19. Because I showed how could triumph over Does that sort of let her take the gloves off a little bit? She's got to be careful because the top of the ticket vice President Biden, as Jean, you have said, really controls the tone and tenor of this campaign, and he's been very empathetic with the president over his coveted diagnosis, and so I think she's got to be able to fit into that narrative. To be empathetic. It's what this administration what the future administration of the bike administration selling especially related to Cove it, but I think she will have a sharp sword from time to time, but she's got to do it with a tone. That's the happy warrior. Oh, there you go. Go backto Al Smith. That's getting backto bygone days. Okay. Rick and genial. Gonna be staying with us through the night right now is go to Salt Lake City where our chief Washington correspondent Kevin's really is standing by on location. So Kevin give us an update on what's going on out there in Salt Lake City. New developments just as vice President Mike Pence, announcing some of his special guests who will be in the audience this evening, the campaign, saying that he will be accompanied by at least one business owner who had their business destroyed in the unrest in Minneapolis, clearly a sign that they will try to double down on the issue of law and order. In his approach. I spoke with Ric Grenell, who is, of course, the former Ambassador to Germany as well as the former acting director of national intelligence just within the last half hour. He said that they want to see Senator Harris pinned down on the issues pertaining to the economy to the Supreme Court, as well as energy policy. They're going to try to portray her.

How To Be An Anti-Casteist
"Warner. We started talking about cast with Lauren Freyer. This is Lauren NPR's India correspondent who started thinking about cast and race in part because of an initiative at NPR to track the diversity of sources. This is something we all know do including this podcast. We will note how many women were putting on the air, how many people of Color and other demographic stats I see my company trying to better represent America with the voices we put on the air and I'm looking at my own sourcing and I get too much credit. Every voice I bring to the airwaves from India as a person of color check the box you know that's diversity from my boss' point of view but I'm looking at different types of diversity in India and thinking. CAST. You see it in India when it comes to. Arranged marriages, dating APPS, you see it in real estate I mean there are subtle ways in which landlords choose tenants and signal to tenants. That certain cats are welcome or not welcome. There is no uncontroversial way to talk about cast and even the words we use are fraud. You're going to hear people in this story talk about upper caste and lower caste. We're GONNA try to avoid those hierarchies and say dominant cast at oppressed caste oppression is a strong term, but it definitely applies here. This is oppression that's gone back centuries. It was really amplified by the British. So British colonists came in and gave Brahmins privileges elevated them and exploited this power differential between the BRAHMINS and other castes and when Indians won their independence in nineteen forty seven, they wrote a constitution that acknowledges that oppression and lays out bold measures to try to fix it affirmative action programs to place dollars in government jobs to play dollars, its top universities, and all of that exists in India still today. But despite all of this dalits in India face so much violence disproportionate violence Daulat women are raped more than women of other Castes Dalit men get lynched for falling in love with dominant caste woman lauren knew she wanted to find out peoples cast to make sure she was hearing from variety of voices including people who don't always get access to speak. But. This broad a new problem. How actually do you find out? SOMEONE'S CAST? So Good question. How does one person Oh you're cast light it is not like you have a color which gives away your identity. Same Cornelia says, sometimes, it's easy. You just read someone's cast by their surname sometimes you cannot hide and how about your real surname is it easy to hide your? Name doesn't go my cost us a k. that this wife immediately when I only seven, they will ask me whole willing come from which part of the state you come from. There had to ask a follow up question. If you can't tell by surname, you can ask about someone's neighborhood are also tried to be clever I come from Hyderabad slow from Hyderabad. It's the city of nine million people all casts are there. So that's the people are not satisfied if you do named. So what they do is no, no. No. I'm not talking about with city you come from willow would your parents which relates Came from Sam keeps dodging the real question might played into used to stay in Bombay. Can. Actually before that, my father used to work. So he was daily. You just keep naming, cities. Because that is the facts also, then they will. They will understand that I'm playing around to the. Sam Doesn't want to reveal his cast because most of his Indian coworkers from dominant castes in fact, the overwhelming majority of south, Asians in America from dominant castes. They're often the ones with the resources and access to get here. The other portion usually people ask is already which. Because Brahman Salvage. Aliens. If you say. If you are in. Indian Austin Indian to find overcast he would say. Which stadium by Bertha, by choice and. The tricky thing about this is that a CO worker could be overhearing this entire conversation. is still have no clue what they're really talking about. They will not even the people were very active about this. In always discrimination and all they might have not heard about cast at all. One person who has written about this hidden code it's Sora. John. Day He's a scholar at Harvard and he wrote a book called cast matters I am A. Child of a former landless labourer and someone who is to clean toilet. into the houses of the dominant caste people. So I'm a I'm adult Indian, and when I come to, of course, America I am a person of color. This two identities that help him see things that other people don't see for example, suraj points out this video they came out last fall. Okay. So what we're GonNa Cook today is an Indian recipe.

Trump demands reporter takes off his mask at press conference
"Take it off the president of the United States telling a reported to take off his mask to ask a question. Then moments later applauding another reporter for not wearing one those exchanges part of a rambling nearly fifty minute press conference a press conference that was really more political rally a political rally in disguise or maybe not. so much of a disguise filled with wildly inaccurate statements including this one about the handling of the pandemic. We are. An absolute leader in every way. An absolute leader in every way, and that follows the president's tweets this morning which he claimed he's getting. Very high marks and our handling of the corona virus especially compared to other countries and areas of the world. Now compared to other countries, the US is leading in overall cases when it comes to getting the virus under control though when it comes to having a plan, not leading the president continues to focus on a vaccine one that isn't approved or even available. We're going to have a vaccine very soon. Maybe even before a very special date data, I'm talking about. Well we know what that date is. It's the election day and yes, everyone wants a vaccine but we're waiting on that we know what works masks and the president really still not advocating it. That's not an absolute leader. The country again is at a crossroads there's an opportunity here for the president he can lead he can put forth a plan to slow down the spread of the virus. And most importantly, he can follow that plan himself or he can continue to undermine the nation's top experts like he did today when he disparaged once again, one of the only tools that has been proven to stop the spread of the virus mask. It's something that could also save as many as one hundred, twenty, two, thousand lives by the end of this year according to one influential model. The president. The issue of what happened when you were. Cleaning you're going to have to take that office. You can take it off your your health feel your wed.. Well if you don't take it off year. Old So. If you would take it off, would be a lot easier. A lot lot better. It's better. Better. The president. As you see, they're trying really hard to get Jeff Mason to take off his mask. I'm going to speak with him in just a moment moments later though the president was praising another journalists for not wearing a mask. Space on some of your tweets Do you you sound so clear? As opposed to everybody else where they refuse. Jeff Mason Reuters, White House correspondent is out front Jeff. This of course is not the first time that the president has tried to get you to take your mask off during a press conference. Of course, just on Friday, he was telling all of us to wear masks over the holiday weekend. When he's asking you to take that mask off. Do you think it was really that he just couldn't hear you couldn't understand you or was there a different purpose there? It's a good question. I think he probably does have a little bit of trouble hearing and I think having had a microphone there. If the White House had set, one up might have helped but I my solution was just to speak a little bit louder. And I think that that took care of it. In that case, the fact that he ended up raising another colleague later, who didn't have a mask on though does go to the mixed messaging that this president has employed on masks throughout the pandemic he did start to embrace them more in the last month or two wearing one for the first time in public when he went to. A military hospital but certainly for the first several months of the pandemic that was not a standard for this president and as you noted in your introduction. It is very clear. The science is very clear now that wearing masks and have a a huge impact. Yeah it certainly is I was really struck today in watching this press conference. The president really seemed to be using this time to air variety of grievances and what's fascinating too is that this was happening, of course at the White House and yet there were a number of moments that felt like that airing of grievances was really more of a campaign rally. Yeah. I mean the the president didn't have any other events today for Labor Day while his opponent was out campaigning although he does have a robust campaign travel schedule coming up. So it's not that the president is planning to stay home but he did today and he used the backdrop of the white. House. As the setting for news conference in which as you say, he went off on on many different topics criticizing very sharply vice, President Joe, Biden, and Senator Comma Harris for their basically. Criticism of him on the vaccine and also taking off a number of other grievances with regard to the economy to Russia and to the Atlantic reporting about his alleged comments about US war dead is it your sense and even from your sources at the White House that we will be seeing more of this briefing miserable takes you back to the coronavirus briefings right? which eventually stopped as we know because of some of the statements that the president made but are we going to see more of these? Briefings that are really just a a rally in disguise well, those those corona virus briefing stopped and then they did restart again shorter versions in the White House press room This was not that particular model today since he was outside and it was not. One of the shorter briefings. But yeah, I think on the days that he does not campaign or isn't out traveling for the campaign he still wants to get his message across and he has used the White House and use the podium beat in the briefing room or be it today in front of the North Puerto Rico. Puerto. Rico as a place to get that message out and he starts with several minutes of his own. Comments and then take some questions and that's what he did today. To, get back to your question. Yeah I'm sure I'm sure we'll see that again.
Joe Biden, Kamala Harris Reject Republicans’ Criticism over Civil Unrest
"Senator comma, Harris says she and Joe Biden support peaceful protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and elsewhere is NPR's Scott JETRO tells us the comment comes amid amped up calls by Republicans for law and order at their national convention.

The American Jewish Community and the 2020 US Election
"Soifer previously served as national security adviser for Senator Comma Harris now, the Democratic nominee for vice president and Joe Biden's running mate. She joins us now to talk about the role. Jewish. Voters play and how she believes. Democrats addressed. Jewish. Priorities please keep in mind. AJC. Is a five. Oh One C. Three not profit organization AJC neither supports nor opposes candidates for elective office and with that disclaimer Haley welcome thank you so much for having me. So let's start with the basics and Kinda, the horse race aspect of this how much of the American voting population identifies as Jewish? So the Jewish community in terms of the American population is about two percent, but we're actually about three percent of the electorate and we'd play an outsized role in. NHS for three reasons, we voted higher rates. On average Jewish Americans vote at a higher rate than. By about fifteen percents we also where we live correlates with wear our votes tend to matter even more we tend to live in swing states and a third reason which I'm sure we'll get into is that we overwhelmingly support Democrats in our view as Jewish Democrat organization that is especially or in terms of the outsize impact we have. So Haley Bernie Sanders in his speech on Monday addressed the many Democrats who really wanted him to be the nominee and many of them were Jewish are Jewish many of them have us on Israel, that don't jibe with the very pro Israel aspects of the party, platform. It really sounded like Bernie was calling on Democrats to unify despite their differences and I'm curious how the Party and its leadership have prevented Israel from becoming a wedge issue. Joe Biden has done an exceptional job in unifying the party around these critically important issues, including Israel and the platform that's been adopted at this convention exemplifies what is overwhelming democratic support for the US Israel relationship. Ebeidi s support a full funding for military. And Support of the STOORIKHEL alliance, it's the view of the majority of members of Congress that is the democratic mainstream media. So you emphasize what a majority of Democrats you certainly we've had concerns over the years about Ilan Omar had to leave. Is that kind of who you're thinking about when you say a majority of Democrats feel this way I should have said an over overwhelming majority you mentioned. Two. Members, of Congress, we currently between the House and the Senate head of over two hundred and seventy. So between those two members of Congress who we agree do not share our views on Israel and we've spoken out against them going back to before they were even elected. But between the two of them to over two seventy, we're talking about less than one percent of the Democratic members of Congress. They are very outspoken though they have expressed views with which we disagree and we've made that clear and that's why we're not supporting their re election and we don't share their views but luckily, their views are not shared by our party either look at the platform I mean the platform is the views of our candidate and the views of our Party and the platform could not be more clear in. Its support of Israel, what I the states to watch in this upcoming election and in which of those states could the Jewish vote really make a difference. When we look in elections, we always look at the last election as a baseline and we know that had Donald Trump not one Florida and either Michigan or Pennsylvania. He would not be president today and in those three states Florida Michigan and Pennsylvania. The Jewish vote alone could made up those margins. So when we looked to twenty twenty in this election, we are looking at the Jewish vote in those critically important states, my home state of Michigan Donald. Trump won by just ten, thousand, seven, hundred, and four votes. That margin could be overcome by the Jewish student population of Michigan in Michigan state a low. We are looking at the Jewish vote in those three critically important states but also states like Arizona and Colorado and Georgia, which in addition to being presidential swing states are going to be critically important in terms of the control of the Senate. Are you saying that the Jews in those swing states voted Republican or didn't vote at all did shoes in those swing states voted we know that Jewish voters do turn out and in twenty sixteen, it was no different than in previous elections choose turned out. But. We also know bat they turned out in support of Hillary. Clinton at about seventy two percents. If you look at the two thousand eighteen midterms Jewish voters supported Democrats at seventy nine percents. So we saw an increase, we believe that in twenty twenty, those numbers can continue to go up in terms of Jewish support for Democrats. So now we'll talk with your Republican counterpart on next week's episode. But from your vantage point, you said that most Jews identify with the Democratic Party why is that? So, choose have historically for decades defied overwhelmingly with the Democrats, the values that Jews hold dear tend to be those aligned with the policies supported by Democrats. So when it comes to domestic policies such as access to affordable healthcare and education ED and gun safety and ensuring that we are country welcoming the stranger and not enacting cruel and discriminatory policies toward immigrants and refugees. These are all key issues driving the Jewish vote. On those issues and more, that's where Jewish voters align with Democrats when it comes to foreign policy is well, we know that support of Israel is an issue that is important of course to Jewish voters and Mrs. Issue Where Democrats to our squarely aligned with the priority of Jewish voters, which is the support of the strong US Israel relationship, and in this election, we have a new issue. So all of those things have been constance. New issue in this election that is impacting the Jewish, vote in Support of Democrats and that is our rising insecurity as a community. We have seen an unprecedented rise in anti-semitic attacks targeting our community including the horrific attacks in Pittsburgh and Powei we know that seventy three percent of Jews feel less secure than they did years ago and over half of US blame. Donald Trump for that and that's because we've seen him embolden anti-semites white nationalist just last night he tweeted out support for an extremist group Hugh a non that has peddled conspiracy theories still on these issues especially when it comes to the security of our community. There's a clear choice in this election and Jewish especially do not believe that Donald Trump has the best interest of our community in mind he has Jewish family members. He's certainly been friendly to Israel is strengthened that relationship. So how does that square? There's no question. He has Jewish family members. He's also married and he's done said many misogynistic things. So that alone does not qualify him as what I would consider to be someone who's been particularly good for the Jewish community I look at the numbers and I look at the unprecedented rise in white nationalist propaganda or anti Semitic attack and the words that. Come out of his mouth better clear signs to anti-semites to racist to bigots that he is their ally whether it is identifying anti-semites white nationalist marching Charlottesville as very fine people or calling the extremists that marched in Michigan with swastikas very good people that was earlier this year or hiring someone recently, Sebastian Gorka who is affiliated with the Nazi party in Hungary? When it comes to Israel. Donald Trump. Has Been Long on symbolism and short on substance. Yes. He moved the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and we recognize that Jerusalem is, of course, the capital of Israel. But the substance matters and when you look at the record of Joe Biden who with President Obama finalized unprecedented historic thirty eight. DOLLAR AGREEMENT WITH ISRAEL PROVIDING FOR AID for the next ten years, and you look at the security issues that Israel faces. Actually Donald. Trump has not been that great for Israel.
Kamala Harris: Making History
"On August eleven twenty, twenty history was made for the first time. Ever a black woman is on the Democratic Party ticket as vice president and that woman is Senator Kamala Harris earlier in the summer, we looked at what Applied Harris campaign look like from the time that she entered the twenty twenty democratic field last year as the lone black. He was a standout on the day show up the nomination. We'll give our reactions to this story moment and some friends of the show will share their thoughts monumental happening. Don't go anywhere this guy. And January Twenty Nineteen Senator Comma Harris announced her bid for the presidency. These are not ordinary times. And this will not be an ordinary election. But this is our America. Here's spit. On the campaign trail the after struggles fundraising strife insider campaign she decided to drop out of the race in December twenty, nine, hundred and March twenty twenty presumptive Democratic nominee Joe, Biden announced that he would select. As his running mate number of women who are qualified president tomorrow, I would take a woman to be my vice president with four years the US Senate her experience as Attorney General in California and from national campaigning under her belt Harris quickly emerged as the overwhelming front runner, and then the thing we thought what happened finally happened Comma Harris became the first black woman to run for vice president on a major party ticket. is so brady if felt like Biden was dangling this announcement over our heads for months, what was your first reaction to hearing the news? I was not surprised by the collection at all I have complicated feelings about senator hairs she is experienced. She's intelligent. She's Dorte has that. explicable presidential quality that I know is mired in racism classism and sexism but still. She gives up that by earlier this year vitamins like it'll likely be a woman of Color I. think this past summer made it pretty clear that it probably needed to be a black woman to be. They were not about to break out no type of brand new black woman and that people were already familiar with at this current point in time. But curious, how did you feel like? Haven't you? What was your reaction when you first heard the news? Was Really. Happy. I. Wasn't happy just because I. It was commonly hairs I too have very complicated feelings about comma hairs, but I was more. So happy then the movement that I think that black women have been leading for probably decades is finally starting to pay off in terms of power black women have consistently did the backbone of the Democratic Party, the backbone of progressive politics in this country and it hasn't translated to to to power. So to have comma hairs kind of break the ceiling as vp I think that's monumental. We're have to do work of holding Kamla accountable as we have. I, think you know that has already been kind of starting to pay off. Cares about you as a black woman. How do you feel in this moment right now I really don't care about symbolism I care about policy would be oppressed and so like this moment is willing to pass and so I am wary of getting too caught up in thinking of. As being some sort of signal assemble or a savior for us. I just really invested in seen what she has to say with their platform actually looks like at also you know there are still a bunch of possible trump voters who are interested invited that WHO's attention they need to capture I, WanNa see what she has to say and I really WanNa, know and listen to.

It was Senator comma Harris and Naomi row Naomi row is a nominee by the Trump administration for the DC circuit court. So she must be stopped at all costs. I want you to listen to this exchange from the perspective of a parent. All right. And and I want you to listen to how it goes back and forth. And then we're going to have a conversation. I eight eight six zero nine six two five the crux of it is if you as a parent warn, your your children's specifically your daughters to not drink to excess in social settings or some settings where they could find themselves. Face with strangers faced with boys that they don't know where they don't trust that would be a bad thing because they could find themselves God forbid, the victim of a sexual assault. Is that victim shaming? If you say that your daughter or is that actually being a good parent. Listen to this exchange now is said when having a conversation with Senator Ernst you said, quote, women's should take certain steps to avoid becoming a victim. What steps do you have in mind that women should take to avoid becoming a victim of sexual assault. Senator it's it's just sort of the common sense idea about for instance, excessive drinking, you know, that was advice that was given to me by my mother it. So that's one step. You believe women should take to avoid becoming a victim of it is it is just a way to make it less likely. It's not to blame the victim. Rape, and sexual assault are horrible crimes. But we're talking about. What can you do to keep yourself safe? Are there other steps that you believe women should take to avoid becoming a victim of sexual fat is one of the one of the issues that I discussed I'm not I'm not sure if there are there others. So do you believe if a woman does not take those steps that she is at fault or partially at fault for what happens to her now? So what is the significance of taking the steps? Well, I think it's just the significance of of trying to avoid becoming a victim of any crime. Right. We take we take different steps to try to protect ourselves from from horrible crimes such as rape. And. You know? And I think what we want is for women to not be victims. So there you go. Is is is is that in some way victim shaming is that blaming a woman if she does God forbid, the fall to become a victim of sexual assault that you're that you're blaming them. If they were doing this. But by preemptively warning and suggesting that one way you can keep yourself out of danger is if you don't drink to excess especially for our teenage daughters were young young women in in settings like this. I'm a parent. I've got two teenage girls I've had this conversation with them. And oh, by the way, I was a teenage boy. And I gave this advice. I think that's being a good parent Kamala Harris by the line of questioning and the tone in her voice. You heard exactly what she was thinking. And she later then tweeted and said that she found this line of questioning to be. She sound the Naomi rows responses to be so troubling. And unacceptable. All right. Well, you tell me as a parent, and I am I missing something here because I think you're irresponsible is apparent if you don't have a conversation like this with your daughters rolling and Middletown your first up at triple eight six thirty WMA L. Hey, ryan. Hey, larry. How are you? I'm good. What do you think of this? Well, I think hurt her a bike. I mean, come loose statements are just so wrong headed, I mean, using her logic. Then you should not encourage women to take self-defense classes to protect themselves in any way, shape or form. And the other thing it does is I think really makes a woman feel incredibly vulnerable because if the notion that there's nothing that I could ever do to ever protect myself, then this whole than than I for my standpoint of our woman, I'd be like incredibly petrified, and what about women's empowerment, isn't that the whole notion? The other piece that I would say is that this same advice is advice should be given to boys. I gave it to my son's before they went to college about drinking because here's the thing. A guy's going to be held a hundred percent responsible for his behavior. Even though he struck you gotta dumber than two bags the hammer to get drunk in any place or any time. There's an opportunity for sexual contact with limit. Yeah. Well, you know role, and that's that's the you're, you know, that's a very good perspective. And I didn't think about it. In terms of young men are sons, you're absolutely right. This is these are treacherous times. Yeah. It's it's it's incredible double standard because they know it is that a woman is not responsible able to say, yes. Because of her alcohol use and therefore rape if there's contact. Yeah. Perspective. But in the same way, if a guy is held one hundred percent responsible. You got a double standard there and given every living in that double standard. It's incredibly dumb for Virginia guide ever get dropped rolling. It's a great point. And and let me just reiterate here. Listen, if if if a young man or any age man is is the perpetrator of a sex crime against a woman in his excuses. Well, gosh, I was drunk. I don't care. All right. That's and and by the way, if a woman is God forbid, a victim of one of these things, and she says I was drunk. I don't care either. In that respect. She is still a victim. Right. This isn't taking away the fact that this is a horrendous crime and being drunk or whatever is no excuse. This is just about as as MS rouse said common sense that if you can't take steps to prevent a horrible situation like this. Well, you should be mindful of those steps you could take and perhaps even follow those steps. That's all that doesn't mean. It doesn't take the the perpetrator off the hook. If in fact, this horrible thing happens, Theresa that's my perspective is apparent on this. I still think we should have those conversations we shouldn't be afraid to do this because oh gosh. Maybe I'm victim shaming my daughter. God. No. Thank you rolling Theresa. And only your next step on WMA. Oh. Good advice. Democrats always find a way to minimize it and twisted. And basically they want their victims and victims and the winning can you. L have their abortion. Downtown. My daughter just went next Nexico cow. And you know, we're always telling her she's a grown woman now and gino's always told her. And if you're a good parent, you're telling your kids to to to do that. Yeah. Theresa that's such a great point. You know, my my nineteen year old is going to UCLA and she said, yeah.
