Filmmaker Barry Levinson on Ukraine scandal
"We have an email from Oscar winning director and screenwriter. Barry Levinson. Who writes if this hearing was a fictional oh piece of material it would be presented in a totally different manner? One of the democratic players would ask this question. How is it possible? That president trump was looking into corruption in in Ukraine. Suddenly he is crimefighter has the president has has the president ever tried to end corruption anywhere at any time in his his life over the years he's been found guilty of stealing from his own charity. Also the president has been found guilty of running fake university and stealing money from people who believed in him. The president has paid off women because of his sexual aggressive behavior. Now out of the blue. He wants to clean up corruption in Ukraine not Russia where Putin has killed off opposition players poisoning them in far off countries. President trump has no real problem with the Saudi prince. NBS having his butcher's chop up a Washington Post Post reporter not a real problem or turkeys aggression against Kurds not a big problem but the Ukraine is corrupt. That needs to change. Are we supposed to believe this. Donald Trump wants to clean up corruption. Starting with Biden's son. In Ukraine the Democrats have not yet emphasized this absurdity at the center of the Republican defensive. Donald Trump might that moment. Come in the house. Judiciary Committee impeachment hearings or art in the impeachment trial in the United States. Senate we are joined now by one of the jurors in the possible impeachment trial of Donald J trump if he is impeached by the House of Representatives. Senator Amy Klobuchar is a Democrat from Minnesota and member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. She is also a candidate for president of the United States. Senator and it's because you're candidate for President United States Florida. I believe you have all you already have the strength but have built up the strength to deal with the kind of frustration. Australian that Barry Levinson is feeling and people all over the country my feeling about this movie person. He knows that truth has become stranger than fiction. I think makes that point. The second thing yesterday member is you can't that long of a question would take your time. The third thing is I think that Adam Schiff I was trying to focus and did a very good job of this on what was in front of him and I think these arguments will be made later but remember this phase of this was gathering offering me evidence from career diplomats career military. I will never forget. Seeing Fiona Hill today I saw snippets of it of course and just her STOIC STOIC nature and the thought of her my favorite story that I read today about her was when she was a little girl in school and some boy behind her set her pigtails on fire and she doused it out with their own hands there. She was and she was focused on what was before her. And that was what Russia did the Ukraine didn't do and I learned from going to Ukraine twice now and once with Senator McCain and Graham I mean Russia tried to influence as as we know in a big way Ukrainian elections they put up a puppet and not only that they invaded their country an annex Crimea so this this thought that it was Ukraine that was the bad actor is absurd and I was really glad that you pointed this out. It's not to say they don't have problems in their country with corruption option but I loved how she explained today that for the president corruption in this case was code word for going after getting dirt on by I they had a different introduction for this segment tonight until I got this email just minutes before the show and what what I thought it captured was the kind of viewer frustration. That there is out. They're in watching this and just to clarify we know that in a courtroom. That wouldn't be admissible if if Donald Trump is on trial for ex. You couldn't bring up all these other things you know that. Art The About his life but this is a different arena. Would we hear something like that said for example in the Judiciary Committee when they're considering impeachment or could that be said that kind of thing be said in the Senate impeachment trial. This is example of evidence because the fact that In this case he was allegedly that corruption crimefighter and when you have other countries and other things that happened including the murder of journalists Jamal Kashogi he showed no care Really absurd relevant. I would think it would be but I think again a lot of this is going to depend pen and what our Republican colleagues do and this is their moment to decide. Are they going to put their country first or not. What would your reaction to Mitt Romney Susan Collins and others having lunch with the president today it disappoints me It's legal or anything like that. I could see if they were going over there on a major issue. That of course would be fine but instead this is what's happening and I just hope that they listened to the evidence and that they remember what this is really about. It's putting private interest partisan interests in front of our

"Dishonor the memory of a great American patriots. Senator mccain. Also important. I've never disrespect. Young women cruise ship. That's basically the whole thing somebody in the office. Did go ahead and try to make this directive happen. It's a complicated issue. I don't really think the president ordered this, honestly, don't take the president even knew that the USS John McCain was stationed there, even know, or care that it was there. He's there to do a Memorial Day event and talk to servicemembers. It seems like it was somebody in the office. Trying to get ahead of the president's ir. I agree with you completely on that. I also to the point where they said that they dismissed several hundred sailors off the ship because the navy hats that they're assigned to wear. Have John McCain's name blazed on that they were just gone for the long weekend. I don't think that there was actually a nefarious thought about this from Trump group, you, I don't think he even comprehended that the ship was there. But it just this whole political controversy. Everybody knows the fight that the president and John McCain had, and it just amplifies their I feel really bad for Megan McCain because this whole. Controversy pops up again, she was on the view on her show, and she said that the president is a child and all this stuff. It's just tough to square way. This is how Megan McCain reacted. It's impossible to go through the grief process when my father who's been dead ten months is constantly in the news cycle, because the president is so obsessed with the fact that he's never going to be a great man. Like he was the story could have easily died on Wednesday. President Trump had said, you know what I have no idea. We'll look into it. If this is true, there's going to be consequences and killed it. But he had to twist the knife. I'm assuming they'll find out who the person was it sent the original Email, and they'll get a strong reprimand just for making a controversy at nothing rain. Thanks for joining us. Oscar. A small preview of what we can expect us twenty twenty starts coming our way they videos, and what big tech companies do to respond to them last week. There was a video circulated of Nancy Pelosi slurring her words, she sounded drunk that checker soon deem that video fake, but it took Facebook thirty two hours to address the issue and didn't even remove that video. Sarah, Fisher media reported axios joins us to detail. What was in that video when you listen to speech when it's not doctored. It sounds speaker since perfectly normal. But what happened was somebody took the video, and they slowed, it down by roughly seventy five percent. And then what they did is they increase the pitch of the speakers voice, so that even though it was low down. The match pitch regular person watching the video. He was really out of it or wrong. But what happened was this video starts go viral. You have promised figures like Rudy Giuliani who are retweeting copies of the video. You have it spreading all over big pop, like Facebook and Twitter. And so, the existential crisis if you're one of those companies do you remove the video, because it's fake news, or do you leave it up, because it's not it's not violent content doesn't violate your policies, but you take action on it in a different way. Maybe you say, hey, we're no longer going to let people retweeted or let people share it, and that's the route that Facebook took. But it's not the route that YouTube YouTube said, absolutely not. It's coming down. They hang up. So you're starting to see this tug of war between two companies of what to do over political misinformation ahead of our twenty elections. We've been talking about this for a long time. Now this whole notion of deep fakes. And while this wasn't necessarily that where they make. A completely different video or make a person say something in a video, this was just super simple. Slowdown, the audio raise the pitch as you said and boom instantly, you know, a lot of people might think it's funny in and start spreading it that way. But that's how things get rolling an internet speeds. I mean this stuff gets viewed by millions and millions of people Facebook has his hands off approach to this whole thing policing content on their site. They use third party fact, checkers instead of their in house people, and that was part of the problem. Why took so long to address this particular video, I was about thirty two hours later. They decided to demo- the video rather than take it down. But it took that much time for fact, checkers to actually check factors used to work with their own scientific or to ensure that they do. In fact, have the or misleading information on their hands. And so once they establish that, that's when they were able to make the judgment call that Facebook would be to devote the video. So it's a long and tedious process. And I think the big question is we have the time. There's a viral video that's the day before the polls open, two hours is not going to be fast enough. And so, I think they spoken a lot of tech platforms, or trying to wrestle with what they do the puts them in a in a really tough spot, because, you know, you wanna be on the right side of things you don't want to take down a video, and then cause a whole controversy later. But as you said, I mean, it's the speed is, is the important thing if it's out there for a few hours, it's going to get picked up in copied and recent. And that's exactly what's happening with this video in particular also, there was a bunch of copycats that went out the lesson learned here is that you have to move, and you have to move quickly. And I think that if your Facebook in your policy is, look, we don't necessarily take down, but we've moved on so that they are not spreading fast, your policy. You better try to demotes that as quickly as possible, because what you're going to end up with a video that goes viral. And by the time you demoted, everyone's already seen it can go all over the place. This time it was just a video of Nancy Pelosi making her sound drunk. But this. Could also very well be the president that they put words in his mouth or slow him down. Make him sound like he's impaired. We know how the news cycles work, all of a sudden than one of the news channels are doing segments on whether this certain politico is, is impaired or whether they should continue serving, you know, they sound drunk, you know, how crazy are they it just takes moments for that stuff to really happen? Critics of Facebook, saying that they need to be more proactive about it and delegating it to these third party. Fact, checkers isn't the right way. But if these fact checking organizations already working on this, maybe that makes them the best people to flag this stuff at least it's a hard, one because stage could make judgment calls in house, if they hired at a Royal experts, but they don't want to, they don't want to be in the news business. They don't wanna provide discretion over content, especially of this nature. So they would rather outsource it to party fact checking sites, and the problem with doing that, though, is that those third party sites don't have the resources that Facebook does. And so the reason the thirty two hours to be able to assess this video in. Determine whether or not truly was doctored is because they don't have point five thousand employees globally with thousands of engineers, who could help them get through this in a matter of minutes. So it's a really fine dance in one end Facebook judge dodge responsibility by outsourcing editorial decisions on the other hand, or outsourcing at the people that don't have the resources to move quickly, which of course, makes problem even worse. There was a Facebook Representative that didn't interview with Anderson Cooper, and for their part, they did say exactly what you said, we're not in the news business. We're in the social media business, but we've seen all the studies and the surveys, most people do get a lot of their news from Facebook and their other social media, so their role in this is really amplified. Are we going to be seeing a lot more of this leading up into the next election? Always misinformation. When it comes to people that are trying to gain or wheel power, and you see MRs the printing press, but the difference here is that it's becoming easier to manipulate the information flow because we have social media because we have off. Automation. And because so many people have smartphones rely on the smartphone for news. So I definitely would expect to ramp up the head of twenty twenty and I think the big thing to look for is ways that big tech platforms either change their policies or dapper practices to handle it or quite frankly. That they don't and we might see that the problems getting worse. It's tough for the tech platforms for sure, but it's just so much tougher as a consumer as somebody who's going to be reading the news. And you see something like this. What do you believe now? And it's everybody needs to do their part. Even the consumer needs to do their part and do their due diligence to not just believe everything that you see, on the internet, but it's getting tougher and tougher, Sarah, Fisher media reporter at axios. Thank you very much for joining us..

"I'd heard about it. But in terms of ship movements silly ships. I've moved to see USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN. So the president tweeted out last night that he wasn't aware of any of this mic. Megan McCain tweeted about this. He said, Trump is a child who will always be deeply threatened by the greatness of my dad's incredible life. There is a lot of criticism of how much I speak about my dad, but nine months since he passed Trump won't let him RIP. So I have to stand up for mitt makes my grief unbearable. I do not fault. Megan McCain for tweeting about her dad, who was an American hero. I've lost a parent. It's tough to deal with that. And if you know if it's cathartic for her to, to tweet about her dad more power to her. I think she should stop tweeting about Trump, though. That's what I think, I think she should because all she's doing is, she's making herself a target for people who you know, that believe that Donald Trump can do no wrong. And I think the way that Donald Trump has handled the death of Senator McCain has been. L not I'm just going to reserve. Saying what I really think about how he's handled it just poorly. Okay. Let's leave it at that. But, you know, I don't I also don't think the president probably knew anything about this, but I can definitely see somebody in the White House going. Let's get the USS John McCain out of the way. So he doesn't say anything about Senator McCain, even giving the thumbs down symbol like the Senator gave when he had a chance to do away with the Affordable Care Act, especially when he's going to be surrounded by people from the navy. You know, let's not have him, make sure we don't put them in a position to say anything bad about the Senator. But, you know, I actually also believe the president that he didn't have any personal knowledge of this at all. It's, it's actually a little silly, isn't it? It's a playground.

Did you do did? You bet the president. Did you bet cinema? What did you know? I did. And I didn't man, I'm debating representing Arizona. I think that's fair. That's a fair question. So I mean a fair answer. She is a little busy, Maxine Senator as Senator one of the things that you that you want is transparency. So now that the Muller investigation is supposedly are not a long national nightmare is over. And it comes out that there's no link to anything with the president. Are you are are you and other senators Republican senators gonna push for that Muller reports become public? Do you think it should be made public? I absolutely do. It hasn't been a long two years. This is divided our country, and I think the maximum possible it needs to be fully transparent. So that American people can move on. It's time for us to really focus on things that matter to the people that I represent, you know, there's a lot of issues that were confronted with rather it's border issues or military healthcare education. We gotta move on and move forward in a way that kinda he'll then puts it behind us. And I think transparency will really help with that is it done or are we still going to be dragged through? Well, maybe he did this. I don't know. You guys are watching the news. You know, the Democrats it seems like they're trying to pivot and forget that this was their thinking that they were focusing on the last two years and trying to you know, further, you know, investigate the administration. I'm Arizona when I'm back home. I've done fourteen or fifteen counties, and my county tour, this is not what most people in Arizona are talking about you know, they're talking about the things that matter to them and their family. And so my hope would be that the Democrats in the house and anaesthetic could just move on. You know, if they want to address of Alabama do that in twenty twenty, but let's move forward to what's best for our country. Arizona Senator Martha mcsally is joining us, her monthly exclusive interview. So I want to ask one question on this Trump, insulting McCain. I don't need Senator to know how you feel about John McCain. I don't need to know that I've heard it. You've sat here in our studio. I can tell when you know, how you feel about him. But I, but I need to know from you how you feel about Trump bashing John McCain. That's what I need to know. Yeah. I I you know, I called the president. I talked to him personally. I let them know how strongly I feel about Senator McCain, and and how strongly Arizona reveres him and had a very blunt conversation with him about that. And when you say blunt, did you tell them to quit it. Get into the details of our personal conversation. We talk often he knows I speak very bluntly after the things I feel strongly about and I really feel like he heard what I had to say do do you believe that you've got through to him. Because even after you talk to him. He went and bash McCain again now, look, I'm not responsible for it actions. I'm doing what I can to speak by heart and heart of Arizonans and have that conversation with him. So on a scale one to ten how angry were you with Trump about his comments towards McCain scale, one to ten Senator McCain Senator McCain's in American hero. And as I said he and it's family deserve respect and peace. And so I'm going to continue to communicate that and do my part to make sure that that happens nine. Right.

You know, it's interesting because I I think the backlash from his tweets have have fueled him to feel the need to. Doubles down. No matter how double down on stupidity. Maybe know that there's something. There's maybe there's a smart strategy there on the part of we just don't we just don't pay any attention to it. Then ignore them. They'll stop treated block. The cloudiness. Yeah. I understand I can understand his anger at John McCain. But you can't come back after the guy has been gone for months and go I just doesn't make a difference. Not that the Colt forty five group gets it. But there is a difference between disagreeing with Senator McCain on policy, I e ObamaCare, right and his vote and the other difference is attacking his service attacking his his time in in a in a prisoner of war. Those are two different things. Right. But yeah, it all goes back to the dossier, which is it's too long. But that's all coming.

For destroying those evil guys I- skies. And I'm glad the president. Did that today? There is some speculation. If it isn't true that it's down to just one little pocket that they're going to get tonight or something he said, but I applaud that president has had an active day launching a new ran against Senator McCain lashing out at Kellyanne Conway's husband, George calling him a.

But we did do a lot of research when we came to a compromise got three kids. We were very concerned about the shot because of its supposed to ties to autism. Now. One of the things we researched and found out that up until nineteen ninety nine in multi does vaccines being MR they use thermos, Aw, preservatives after nineteen ninety nine they either eliminated or they reduce the amount. So the compromise in my wife, and I came to we actually found a pediatrician. We'll give our children the mumps measles in rebel in separate doses. Uh-huh. Thermos oil and the and and the pediatrician pediatrician went along with that. It was difficult. We difficult finding that would do that to get a hold of the vaccination the vaccine on our third child. It was no longer. We can find anybody would do it. We couldn't find the vaccine. So we actually spread we tried to spread all their immunization out a little more than recommended. So I didn't have such a shock on their system. And thank goodness all their children vaccinated. Don't autism them problems. Anything like that good? But but the one thing is that there's still can be thermos on some of these. I don't know any. I don't I don't I don't know. What thermos all is.

I would have much preferred not to have had people don't understand how noxious and nasty event disease. Is that sad. I vaccinated all our kids. The vaccines were spread out a little bit. They were recommended times. But if we had multiple shots, do we would make make sure that it was spread out with a month in between them that is one of the biggest things that I have against it is is there's too much too soon. Too much all at once you need to spread them out right amount. Okay. All of all of our kids are vaccinated. They're all healthy our kids kids grandkids. There's a mixture because we're currently the one is only a month and a half old so not really into it. But I think he's going to vaccinate on a on a limited basis where it's spread out a not. Probably spread out a little bit more than what we did that he's gonna he's gonna vaccinate dot not. But not. Do all all the one on one time. Got it. Rick thankless squeeze a call with Mark. Mark, welcome. You're on Kelbadjar radio. Hey, good to talk to you. Yeah. So you had mentioned measles and had mentioned there's been death. I just wanted to kind of correct?

I I know there's an outbreak right now in Washington and Oregon right now. There's a big outbreak two years ago. Also, and there is no no deaths in America, there are deaths in other countries and stuff like that. So anyway, that's all.

"He getting repeal and replace ObamaCare is you know, he campaigned on repealing and a place replacing ObamaCare for years, and then it got to a vote, and he said thumbs down and our country would have saved a trillion dollars that we would have had great healthcare. So he campaigned he told us hours before that he was going to repeal and replace. And then for some reason, I think I understand the reason he ended up going thumbs up, and frankly, hadn't even known that. I think we would have gotten to vote because we could have got somebody else. So I think that's disgraceful. Plus there are other things. I was never a fan of John McCain, and I never will be the one thing you have to appreciate about President Trump is he doesn't walk on eggshells. He tells you exactly what he thinks. He has. No love lost for John McCain, John McCain. They didn't invite him to the funeral. He didn't he wouldn't go. If he wasn't vital probably in the people were there, just insulted the president. He didn't give a damn don't give a damn. Said what I never cared for him. And I never will. And think about what he said they could have we could have saved a trillion dollars.

"But first allegedly you started your political career working for a guy called Senator McCain who's back in the news again. Fortunately, I'm I'm kind of I touch this issue now and again because I know Senator McCain son-in-law who's a regular guest here. I not a big fan of the late Senator as somebody who worked for him Boris, where do you stand? I was proud to work for Senator McCain in two thousand eight in that election. I backed him during the primary I worked for him at headquarters and actually in Alaska governor Palin was named for the campaign. I worked hard to defeat Barack Obama, and we did not respect the late Senator may he rest in peace. This information that has come out that we've known some some of it. But it's come out more recently, and some of the revelations that he and Kramer, who is an associate of has were a big part of pushing out this fake false dossier against the president is extremely disappointing and frankly, sad, and I think it's a sad chapter of the late centers career with all due respect to him and his family and the president's response. What do you think of that? I think the president is entitled to respond that dossier has had an incredibly incredibly negative impact on the president on his. Family on this country. What it's dragged the country through in terms of these unending investigations continuing now investigations, which have come up with nothing pertaining to any collusion with Russia, which did not happen is the president has said time and time again, so that dossier has been a horrible. Sort of a devil's apple in a way, write an original sin of what's of what started a lot of this negativity. A lot of the struggle. It's ruined folks lives. Look, look, it's resulted. Let let let's wherever you stand on McCain that fake propaganda file because dose as a fancy word. It's a fine of garbage propaganda written by an spy, former former who hated hated Donald Trump. He's admitted this in a British court that dossier was used as the trigger as the blue touch paper of the firework that launched an investigation that has put men in prison not for colluding with Russia, but for everything but colluding with Russia, and whatever those crimes of Paul Manafort said that he's admitted to and others that that is all well and good. But what about the people have been dragged through spent tons of money who did nothing wrong like Donald Trump junior? You better believe it's personal to the president. President's son has been dragged through investigation has had to spend a towel. Thomas time ton of money ton of effort to defend himself against nothing. It gets crap. So think. Let's be fair to Senator. He's one of the people who has seemingly was was a big part of distributing it. Yes. Others were sure. Senator does it. It has a little bit more impact than some journalist somewhere. Right. It's a big thing. And that was the idea behind it in this recent revelations that they had this particular center. A Republican Senator McCain a former nominee of the puck and party for president give it to the FBI to give it that. And that is also what is extremely disappointing. And I think the president is fully entitled to respond and the McCain family will respond turn. And that's what Megan Donner she's entitled to which country. It's the marketplace. Let me just before we move on one person to because it's Manafort committed crimes committed crimes, but we've got to talk about general Flynn, I worked for general Flynn in transition for months. He's an honorable man. The fact that the FBI unleashed agents to talk to him without warning him without Miranda's ING him, and then he gets caught in a process crime that results in him losing his home. That's outrageous. And that's also a cost of the dossier. I agree and here's more, Mike. Fusion on that is Comi the former FBI doctor wild FBI director said to congress that general and did not flop lie Qomi said the general Flynn did not lie and then later he gets charged and then and then you know, he does admit to lying to the FBI but not under oath. And by the way, let's not forget. That Andrew McCabe was fired from the FBI because the FBI inspector general, so the McCabe lied under oath and a report. Yes. And McCabe is writing fancy op-eds for doing fancy interviews on the big networks, and general Flynn is struggling so where's the fairness and that we'll see how long for the let's move to these incredible polling results that we've already mentioned here in America. I seventy one percent of those polled said that the economy's doing gangbusters and fifty percent say that it's thanks to President Trump Boris as a hardened veteran political operator do facts matter when it comes to twenty twenty or is it all going to be about who spin wins? The just like the region Cajun said. Just like James Carville. It's all about that Konami bathing and seventy one percent of Americans. Believe the economy is good. Fifty two percent of those polled are willing to attributed to the president. But you better believe that or not nineteen percents spread most of them believe it's because of the president. And when they go to the polls, and let's hope the economy stays booming and the president and this administration and congress the Republicans in congress are doing what they can to continue that won't be. We'll go to the polls and they see unemployment at historic lows GDP growth at historic highs. You'd better believe they're going to cast that vote for president Donald J Trump because they want to continue living the good life in America. So does that mean that at some point in the next year, the Democrats are gonna drop slave reparations? They're going to drop a customer Cortez's green you scam. Are they going to realize hey, you can't fight seventy one percent? Or are. They just going to double down, given what you've seen in the last two years where did you put your money Boris? Epstein I think they're going to double down on the social. Justice issues because you can't fight the president on the economy he came in. And he said he was going to cut taxes. She said he was going to deregulate, and the Democrats are going to claim that it's somehow just for rich white people will guess what historic law and employment for Hispanic Americans historic low unemployment for African Americans historic low unemployment for women historic low unemployment for disabled Americans that is not just rich white people and not only that it's the highest median wage we've never seen. I think it's sixty four thousand dollars. It's the highest median wage in US history and not to get to walk. I know we're not on. I know we're not gonna walk you go full walk mad money here, but the fastest wage growth we've seen since the two thousand so this with a special focus on what industry, no, white collar, blue collar. So and look at everything that Avante Trump is doing workforce development w GDP movement to empower women around the world. This is stuff that Democrats dreamt of achieving. This president is is achieving. I'm very proud to have been a small part of the team that elected him proud to work in the White House. Proud to be supporting and I think the Democrats as there look around to the dumpster fire that is their Kennard field, including the one the only Robert Francis Beto O'Rourke. That they've got nothing. Right. They've got nothing. They've got just a bunch of people who are jumping around and saying things, and I think that is why former vice president Joe Biden is not getting in because he doesn't think the water so warm he thinks maybe outside the pool is faster and is just dive into the dumpster fire. Who would you? You must be joking that clown circus, clown college, no way, no way. I'd be worried Boris. I'd be really worried. I mean, you might get a phone call from the White House. They might want you back. Pat, Pat, a very smooth. You're listening to Boras follow him on Twitter Boris EP. Also, his daily update breakfast with Boris dot com.

"Gotta get back to the phones. People have been waiting patiently out there. We do have a couple of Trump soundbites coming up from the joint presser Brazilian, President Trump said that we're in the twilight of socialism, and yet all these young millennials think that capitalism has failed them why is that they any millennial who wants a job can get one. Obviously, what is it? That makes them think. Capitalism has failed of I tell you what I think one thing is student loan debt. I think the student loan situation is crushing people. They are going into debt to get degrees. Many of them worthless degrees. They're going into debt getting degrees that they've been told they have to get college is mandatory gotta do it can't do without it. Gotta get it. Done gotta go. Everybody says public pressure peer pressure. You gotta go to college. They do they it's so important in so mandatory that they take out loans. They borrow more money than you ever dreamed. They would bar because they've gotta go. They gotta go. They gotta go. Everybody says you've got to go to college got two parents peers everybody. Tech people telling you got to go to college. So they occur. All this debt. They come out with four year degrees. Many of the degrees are worthless. And they've got this mountain of debt. And who are they going to blame that on? Gonna blame it on the American economic system is zone unfair. So you you you might be able to make the case that they. Could blame capitalism. If they associate capitalism with the student loan program. Aside from that. It's a massive disconnected education. But we'll get into that in more detail as the program today and tomorrow rest of the week unfold, here's Todd in Saint Cloud. Minnesota your next. It's great to have you with us. Hi, greetings, and salutations from many DC ODA. I was calling about Kellyanne lesser half. And how he was diagnosing the president with his issues. Oh, yes. Narcissism narcissistic disorder all that stuff small hand disease. You name it, exactly. What what does? He do. They have that. That's what they do full time that they get up in the morning, they hate and they spew hate, and they gotta go get him. I'm not a psychiatrist, but you know, thinking a little bit is it. I don't know if it's obsessive compulsive disorder or it's somebody got my Wheaties. Great question while all these people are recusing, Trump of massive, psychological and pathological disorders. How about the never Trump brigades, both our never Trumpers and the Democrats because we're dealing with clear irrationality at the best. The best case, we can make Fordham is there irrational. And the never Trumpers, you know. The former Senator McCain was part of it. And I think we can all agree. What President Trump has said. I hurt him hurt. Hurt McCain and it was disrespectful for McCain service. But I think we can all agree that Senator McCain was the most conservative democrat in the Senate. Hey, I caught that you can get away with. And you can't see it. Oh, well, very clever on your part serve very very most conservative democrat that we have a if you put it that way. You do have you do have a point. You look at his history and all that. But yeah, I just you listen to these people, and you know, that that TV cable TV news station that has less audience than you have. I mean, I listened to him. I I look at it. I want to get a perspective from all sides, and it just. Visceral their hatred for the president and just think forty four received half of the hate news media coverage that President Trump has received. All how would he be ume? Let me tell how would he deal with it? How would Obama you can let me let me remind everybody is something let me remind everybody in one of Obama's early press conferences. Maureen Dowd asked him something about his ears. And he glared at her. He glowered at her gave some answer when it was over. He sought her out afterwards. And told her he was very sensitive about questions about his ears. And she said don't worry about it. We're just trying to toughen you up. Remember that Snerdley? We're just trying to toughen you are Garrett. If Obama got one day of what Trump got he wanna sick Michelle on these people, and who knows what would have happened. Then. It was it was telling me he was telling me he was telling Republicans not to listen to me. That's not how things get done in Washington. Now, you're that's another great point, the irrationality and the pathological disorders of all these people in the drive-by media about Trump is beyond describing the irrationality of hatred. And I can explain it, by the way, it would take me a while. But I can explain it. It's because I understand their psychology. Trump wasn't supposed to win. And he did they were supposed to make sure he lost. And they didn't Trump is an outsider. He's not an elite. They are Trump upsets the natural order of their daily existence. It's a total equilibrium distrupt disrupt her, and they they they can't they can't stomach that. This has happened, particularly when their job is to make sure it didn't happen. They can't believe Hilary lost. Even though they they know she was a rotten candidate. They'd like Trump's hair. They don't like the way talks. It's a never ending. List of things, but it is real hatred. And real hatred is poison and they have been poisoning themselves daily ever since Trump got into the race. Speaking of which let's go these two soundbites that we have from Trump's presser with the Brazilian, president Zaire Bolsonaro joint press conference. A reporter said look you tweeted in support a congressman notices suit against Twitter. Now, there's that's part of a larger discussion about making social media companies liable for the content that's on their platform, which they're not currently and not currently held liable. Is that an idea or a change in law that you would support I have many many millions of followers on Twitter, and it's different than it used to be things are happening names are taken off people aren't getting through you've heard the same complaints. And it seems to be if they're conservative if they're Republicans if they're in a certain group this discrimination and big discrimination. I see it absolutely on Twitter and Facebook something's happening with those groups of folks that are running Facebook and Google and Twitter. And I do think we have to get to the bottom of it. Yeah. I'll tell you what this is tied to. In a recent supreme court case Justice Clarence Thomas. Lamented that it is too difficult for public figures to sue for libel and slander in the United States is because of the case Sullivan versus New York Times or New York Times versus Sullivan. And it basically is the case that holds if you're a public figure, screw you. They can say anything you want about you. And you have no recourse because given that you're a public figure, you already have a platform or platforms that you can use to reply so public figures in the United States cannot seek damages when they are slandered or libeled and Clarence Thomas thinks this case needs to be overturned or revisited I should more properly say, and I think that Devon notices lawsuit against Twitter is the first step in trying to get that case Sullivan versus New York Times or a version of it back before the supreme court because what Trump described let me describe it a little bit better. Trump has. How many followers on Twitter does anybody know off top of your head? How many millions right? You would figure if Trump tweets something out that of that millions and millions a significantly large number of them would re tweet it would they not? Okay. So Trump tweets out a video or anything. He's got millions of followers. Then you look and you see eleven thousand retweets sorry, folks. That's not mathematically possible. Somebody who has millions and millions and millions of tweets something out on only eleven thousand retweeted. That's one of the things Trump is talking about here. The shadow Trump is being shadow band show. Trump is being limited. As are a lot of conservatives on Twitter and Facebook and all the Facebook, apps, there's messenger, there's Instagram Facebook controls a lot of these things. And there's no question that there's censorship. Twenty five point four million, followers and a video. He tweets gets eleven thousand retweets. That's not possible. There are other be millions or re tweets. Trump is perhaps the one of the most popular Twitter users ever, and they're doing everything they can to limit Trump's popularity and reach, but they are private concerns. It's. Their business. They can run it. However, they want. Sad to say. And intrigue to them to be fair are going to be met with deaf ears. Because they are also leftist activists as as well. Here's one more Trump bite. Yes. He continues with his thoughts on on censorship. That's occurring and collusion. That's occurring on social media. You know, the incredible thing is that we can win an election, and we have such a stacked deck, and then includes networks, frankly, a you look at the networks. You look at the news. You look at the news casts. I call it fake news. I'm very proud to hear the president used the term fake news. But you look at what's happening with the networks. You look at what's happening with different shows. And it's hard to believe we win. But you know, I'll tell you what it really shows that people are smart, the people get it to go through all of that whatever it is they're fed and in the end they pull the right lever. It is kind of amazing that the odds as stacked against Trump and Republicans as they are that victory. Still happens here what happened to ROY blunt in Missouri right blunt? A Republican from Missouri. Senator voted. Four the resolution condemning Trump's declaration of a national emergency. He was one of the twelve Republican senators essentially voting against Trump. He was invited in his hometown. From speaking at a big time Republican fundraising event after that vote in his hometown.
