"It turns out that was not The low point because we've reached a new low as I said, Madam president, Snow surprise. The Democrats have reacted with hysteria at the prospect of President Trump Na meeting another Supreme Court justice. It was disappointing, but hardly surprising that yesterday the Democrat leader blocked a key intelligence committee hearing on election security, a topic he has repeatedly insisted is off over well. Ming importance to protest the thought of the Senate, fulfilling its advice and consent role in confirming a principled conservative woman, even Speaker Pelosi's overwrought statement the Republicans are and I quote coming after your Children and quote seemed pretty much par for the course. But Democrats have not limited themselves to temper tantrums. No Democrats have moved on to threats. Dare to confirm the president's duly nominated nominee. Democrats are now saying, and if we win back the majority in November, we will eliminate the legislative filibuster and pack the Supreme Court. In other words, if Republicans dare to fulfill the Senate's role of advising and consenting to the president's nominee, Democrats will upend our democratic institutions. That was South Dakota Republican John Thune, moralizing justice with Bater Ginsberg. And here with more on the justice is first day of lying and repose of the Supreme Court is the Hills. Christina Marco's thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me Christina Marco's on your Twitter feed a picture of a long line of people today wanting to pay respects what kind of activity did we see that the court today there's a long line even in the middle of the day on a on a Wednesday for all these members of the public who want to t their respects Tio late Justice Ginsburg the line Start from when I When I saw I start always back in the Supreme Court is exact a bunch of times and snake all the way to the front where they're allowing people Tio walk from a distance in front of the casket in accordance with Corona virus pandemic guidelines outdoors and with math than everything else on and it's clear that this is a lot of people are eager to pay respects to a progressive icon. There are also lots of Treat vendors set up on the sidewalk near the near the started the line you were selling Ruth Bader Ginsburg seen buttons and T shirts and even math. No, there's there's a lot of enthusiasm for paying respect to the justice and fur and among progressives for putting up a big fight in the Senate when they're where they're trying to confirm her replacement is possible. How long will people be able to see her today and tomorrow at the court? Sure she will be passed along with the lie in repose throughout until late tonight, a cz well all day tomorrow, So there's lots of time for people to come and pay their respects. And we're expecting potentially thousands of people to come and pay their respects with these long lines going going all day long. We heard earlier from the chief justice paying his respects. Did other members of the court get a chance to do that today? I will. Before Ginsberg cast was moved out front there was a ceremony in the Supreme Court inside the Supreme Court.

He stop by this afternoon tea today is responding along with Former first lady Hillary Clinton. There also numerous members of Congress who walked across the street to pay their respects during this house vote Cirie this afternoon. There are lots of house members who cast their votes and then walks right across the street. I'm normally Chuck Schumer and Senator Bernie Sanders Netley both went to the same high school in Brooklyn as Justice Ginsburg and so they also made a point of going over there as well. Your story, which can be found at the hill dot com also highlights the fact that some of her former law clerks played today the role they played. That's right, sir. As Ginsberg's casket arrived at the Supreme Court this morning, her former clerks lined up in front of the core insurgents pall bearers to carry her casket. I've been inside the court of the stairs for the private for the for the memorial service inside after tomorrow, she'll go to the Senate, one of the plans to honor her there.

So are we in the capital that national Statuary Hall where there will be a private private invitation only ceremony do do the Corona virus pandemic that all too many people in there they want to maintain social distancing and gives her well as I said, the first women to lie in state. Rosa part was the first woman to lie in honor. But when she was private, then she wasn't granted the official honor Lion State, which is only granted for public officials. And Ginsberg is off velocity, the only the second Supreme Court justice. July in state. The last justice, Elena say, was William Howard Taft. Back in 1930. He was the chief justice, and he also served as president turning to the process of appointing another judge. What's the latest in the White House is in the Senate's intento point that President Trump is that he plans to nominate to announce his nominee, which he plans to be said will be a woman on Saturday on so once the memorial services for Ginsburg er Are you finished?

"Something that That will be talked about in studied and analysed in years to calm even after this virus is behind us after there is a you know fully functional vaccine we will wonder what happened. But the president has had some interesting. Statements to make. A about the virus you know we heard we went round and round with what he told a Lindsey Graham about how he likes to downplay the virus. And then he you know we had the press secretary said, he never downplays it. Didn't lie and all of that. But now the president's doing rallies on an almost daily basis I just WanNa play a clip from a rally that he held in. Ohio on Monday, where he offered a an interesting. An interesting bit of analysis As to who cove nineteen affects. It affects elderly people elderly people with heart problems and other problems if they have other problems, that's what it really affects. But it affects. Virtually. Nobody. It's a it's an amazing by the second thing where he says that affects virtually nobody he was specifically talking about younger people saying essentially offering a new theory. That young people are essentially immune of from covid nineteen, which I'm sure. Is the message greatly appreciated on colleges and universities around the country that are trying to keep laid on all of this my my daughter goes to Uva the President of the University of Regina has just imposed. Some new restrictions on any gatherings of more than five people not allowed currently not allowed for the next couple of weeks to have visitors in Charlottesville or to leave Charlottesville to visit somebody. So you know you have colleges and universities around the country trying to. Get. The best. Behavior out of out of young people and you have the president of the United States saying it affects nobody it affects nobody. So I thought rake I would play just a little clip. it. Was Dr Anthony Fauci yesterday Uh, speaking to. A Dr Sanjay Gupta take listen to what FAO she said about this notion. That it only affects this virus only effects is the president was saying. Elderly people who already have other problems. Technology is the elderly and people at any age with underlying conditions underlining any age. So don't just think the elderly are the problem. There are plenty of younger people who have underlying conditions that put them at risk. So I I, you know I I don't I don't really. Know what more there is to say about this wreck the if you listen to the to the public health professionals, doctors, and others. There is a lot of concern about what we are going to in in the fall as we clash with a potentially problematic flu season having the same time as we're dealing with Kobe nineteen their number of states particularly in the Midwest even you know my my former home state of South Dakota. Where you see alarmingly high infection rates and You know the president is holding his rallies. I do know that they're putting people with having people behind him in camera shot wearing masks. I guess that's a good thing for the optics and good message to send. But but but but virtually nobody else in these rallies is wearing masks the president is. Is Not just downplaying the the virus but he is. The threat of the virus he is saying things are are are are. According to the public health experts as you just heard entirely untrue and perhaps even dangerous on truths. To be talking about. John. I think it comes down to this. We don't know what the next forty days are gonNA are GonNa look like we don't know what what kind of campaign we're going to have but there's a couple of different possibilities. One is if we could have a campaign about the president and leadership including leadership on fated nineteen and race relations looking back at. The the perceptions of how he's handled these things present trump loses that race according to all the polling that we've done public and private poll was all it's all out there if. It's a campaign about what happens next about an economic recovery about turning the corner. That's a much different race John. We. Had some polling out this morning battleground state polling on that we do with along with Washington Post this cycle in Florida and Arizona? Sundance states that were never really supposed to be on the map. But if you looked at Arizona particularly like it might be fading from President Trump we in a different portrait, we had a basically a tied race point or two in either direction When you look at it from likely registered voters, it's basically a jump ball in both Florida and Zona and you know I think a relevant point is that Florida and Arizona Right. Now, cove is not front page news covid. There isn't a spike fortunately, either of those states right now like some of the Upper Midwest states are experiencing and the advantage that president trump has on the economy and on looking past, the crisis starts to to become evident, and that's why you see a president flatly misleading people about his record on Covid as well as. The reality of covert right now, he is trying to construct entirely different reality, and I would say that if he's able to do that if he's able to convince voters of that in enough key places, that's what keeps him in this race. You know the the Florida numbers were are fascinating in our polls showing a biden with a very slight lead within the margin of error among registered voters among likely voters, the president with a very slight lead. A also within the margin of error. So. Much so much depends on on on.

Trump Defies Nevada Directive as Thousands Gather for Indoor Rally
"It appears that corona virus doesn't seem to affect Donald trump or indeed any of his supporters at a rally in Nevada. This weekend supporters mostly mask free stood cheek by jowl as president claim that the US has nearly conquered. The virus O'Brien classes assistant professor in global politics at UCLA AND CO author, how to rig an election and he joins me now for an update on the week's election events in the United States Brian Welcome back. Good Morning. Let's begin with this latest rally in Nevada. There's widespread coverage of the fact that social distancing rules will broken practically on every single level going against Nevada state regulations and indeed the national regulations. Yeah I. Mean it's it's just remarkable in mind boggling I mean here in the UK we have new restrictions in place trying to limit the spread of the virus on Friday. There were six new deaths in the UK in the US were over a thousand and you have the president of the United States not just talking about how public health measures should be further rolled back but actually leading by example in doing. So by putting people at risk at his rallies and remember. That in a previous rally that he held indoors in Tulsa. Oklahoma this summer, a former presidential candidate Herman Cain seems to have contracted the virus at that rally in died. So I mean, this is not just putting people at risk in the abstract could actually kill some of the people who are at the rally not to mention infecting others who have made no choice to go to rallies and have been infected by by trump supporters. The many people have said that rally in Tulsa was. A turning point for Donald trump insofar as because of the deaths and because of the large infection rate that followed it, and the fact that that's that whole was pretty one-third empty when that happened it kind of changed his attitude towards everything. The fact that he has so openly you'll. have so openly defied all of the regulations isn't this now just a clearer sign that there is a, there is a public rift now between Donald Trump, the White House, and effectively all the rest of the world science. Yeah, there's there's no other comparison in world leadership I mean you know when? When Donald? Trump. Talked about the virus in the beginning. He called it a hoax. He down played it repeatedly, he lied to the public as we know now with these revelations from Bob Woodward's book in which he privately was saying that this is a very deadly virus in publicly saying there was no risk that it was going to disappear like a miracle but then recall in in April when public health measures were put in place in various states donald trump called on people to liberate those states that was the language used in tweets from the public health measures when masks were recommended by the public health officials, he said they're not required and he took it. Pains to say that you don't need to wear them. So you know there's a reason why the US consistently is having about a thousand deaths today while most most countries in Europe are in the either single digits or low double digits, and you know it's it's just an ongoing problem where the US is effectively given up right now in the US, the worst states are in the upper midwest and the reason for that is because just weeks ago, two hundred, fifty, thousand motorcyclists descended on a small town of seven thousand people in Sturgis, South Dakota, which is allowed to go ahead and it spread a massive outbreak. Of Two, hundred fifty thousand people meeting in the middle of a pandemic doesn't exist doesn't compute in other countries in the world and yet it's being done with Republican leaders sanction. Where is the drive coming forward to defy the regulations into to go in a different path you mentioned the the infamous interview he gave to Bob would march when he said I wanted to play it down I still like playing it down because I don't want to create a panic but at that time he did recognize the he's huge risks of a place by corona virus. Is there a sense that the the decision to make everything feel normal put everyone together in the same room is coming directly from trump or is this a campaign move? I think it is coming from him and I think it is a campaign move. I think it's coming from him trying to argue that he is putting the economy I A lot of this has been with his sort of mindset that we must open the economy and the fundamental mistake that he made in some other world leaders made, and then quickly realized that it was mistake is trying to divorced the economy from the virus. The economy will grow in the virus goes away. The economy will improve when the virus comes under control and so you. The what's happening in the United States is very, very bad as or equilibrium where you have high levels of virus transmission and therefore you have a very low levels of economic recovery because people are still scared and I think the campaign is going to have serious implications for trump not just because of how bad the virus outbreak is for everybody. But specifically, because the people who don't want him to put the economy, I are those who are most vulnerable to the Virus Aka those who are. Sixty five plus and vote a lot. Especially, our key voting demographic in places like Florida and Arizona where they have large retirement communities in their swing states. So if he continues to do this to sort of model behavior that clearly shows that he is willing to put their lives at risk, it's a it's a very big opening for Joe Biden to say to those voters. Look I'm I'm worried about the economy to, but I also don't want kill a whole lot of Americans before you know. Before the virus comes under control through a vaccine or or petering out through her immunity God forbid. So I think this is a very risky strategy and one that could end up backfiring for

Why would the windshield break in on me and there was something covering my right I didn't know what it was my glasses. Were smashed my headset. Knocked off it went in the back seat. There was a tremendous amount of cold air hitting. He was about twenty degrees at night. And the bird that hit me I had no idea what it was really came through the front windshield high and took the roof out HUSKIES got plexiglas on the roof to trip that out and then it blew the left windows out. Don't know how but the left window system and yet the the bottom of the flap and cut yet and hit the tail. At, this point in my life I have to, you know bifocals readers so I could see anything. Looking down for a frequency and so lauren cannot partially there for a second. So you just flying back from a nice weekend hunting trip. It's at night snow in a little bit but visibility is good. Just a dark night I presume with overcast. But you're over pretty flat terrain out there North Dakota and it's interesting to me. You didn't hear a loud Bam or the first thing you notice was just your windshield caved in and for a few minutes it sounds like you had no idea why I didn't have any idea. What happened until I got it on the ground other than the windshield came in. I told you the approach control guys I found my headset backseat and cut it up and got it on and told I got a windshield and they were asking me if I wanted to emergency they were voted me about that and I'm trying to fly the airplane and they sure get to see on the ground and I don't Della -mergency please you know slummy fly this thing and so I was able to slow down slightly I didn't WanNa. Definitely wanted to get it on the ground quick but I had a good engine. It was running fine no vibration and control the airplane. I L runs and everything was working right and so I had to airplane from then on it was mainly. So cold in there, it took a big chunk of the top of the airplane out so. I had a tremendous airs, twenty degrees at night. so as immediately, really cold and swansdown helps some. But not much and So I had about twenty five miles to get it to where I live Bismarck. Fortunately, there wasn't any win that night they lit up of a runway for me to one which. Pretty much straight in. I was really glad to get it on the ground and glad they didn't have a serious crossman to deal with or anything else. But I was not able to switch over to our tower frequency or a ground control. But my friends were working in the tower they've been working with me for twenty five miles. And I sold my hey, I can't see that. The frequency. You GotTa land me on approach and taxi me on approach which they did Bismarck's relatively small community in and I knew the tower guy at that time. That was really about it. I got it on the ground and got it our hangar where we got some lights on it, and then I began to see what really happened.

So that's one of our favorite stories that we became very, very close to Nancy, before the to river thing. So we've just had this. Right place, right time, magic, Hawaii, and. Huge part of it for me is that. Veritas there you know kind of even. Keel. Winning for everybody so We we're going. For Two kids from eighteen high school worked out pretty well when you were doing those early jobs. You mentioned like disc jockeying and doing weekend news. What was it that you were doing well Enough to keep advancing along like when you look back now. You know like what were the characteristics or traits was at just work? Is there sort of a talent and is there a native talent? I don't know delivering I think people determined that I was interested in what I was doing that I was serious about journalism. And you know and I had a certain cosmetics thing where I could get on television. I was from the time I could remember anybody remember me I was at ease talking doing things. So it's not a bad performer, but I was really interested. In the substance. So I went from Sioux city to Omaha for two. Two years in Omaha going all kinds of things here morning noon and night and Bang I get picked up by the biggest station in the South Atlanta Georgia. Of the Civil Rights Movement next thing I know I'm covering Dr King in everybody down there and feeding the stuff NBC. Eight months after I'm Atlanta NBC comes, we want you to come to California to go to work for us so it was Bang Bang Bang. I get to California in nineteen, sixty, six percent I do is start covering Ronald Reagan who everybody said that he can't win and I got the whole team I was on the air on election night do all this stuff. And then California in those as especially and I think it's still true. They don't ask about your pedigree can you do the job or not? We had a great live other the closest friends that we have to this day or people our age who came there at the same time. Warren Buffett's irreplaceable warrior on the greatest lawyers in America came from a small town. Iowa at the same time we were there are other couples like that. California's on the rise. Everything was affordable. We bought a wonderful House valley up in the hills forty, two, thousand, five, hundred dollars. You know we do three couples would go out for dinner would be one, hundred would not be one hundred bucks, three couples in. Some of the best restaurants town? And then I, was doing a lot of work for NBC. And then you know we had a really good life there emerged had a good life. She was a linguist. and. Then in VC Cameron said. Time, move, we gotta come back East. Chancellor. Why do I wonder that? So you so I went back I became the White House correspondent. And the timing again was brokaw's favor I caught. Watergate. Boom Yeah. Is it Also read. That it's rumored I. Don't know if you've ever acknowledged it or maybe it came from you that you were offered but turned down an opportunity be Nixon's press secretary. It was true her career to win no way different direction. There was no way I was going to do so you didn't even entertain the idea. Entertainment I almost threw up when they made the offer. Yeah. There's no one more reviled than the press secretary during crisis and. What I wanted do I want to be journalists I didn't want to be on the other side I want to do what I was doing and I ended up. Having a good Bob. Haldeman who made the opera was persistent Finally. He went to jail Watergate's over and word I'm in New York, doing a kind of retrospective on Watergate. I guess it's Big Bear Hug from behind me I turn around and it's Bob Haldeman. You say. Honey Times. I've watched you gotta I could've sent him to jail. So you remained friendly. With Ronald Reagan. Yeah. Like you. You speak well of him now mostly Nancy but also Reagan says I. Think he was up to the job when he got the job I was. I was worried about I thought he was successful in California because he had a strong state legislation, you'll learn how to work with them. And then I learned as president. Because we came very, very close to Jim Baker is chief of staff. Who said he knew what he knew, and that's where he spent his time and what he didn't know he didn't WanNa go there. He didn't want to fake it. So he said, we'd have these staff meetings at seven o'clock in the morning Baker would run them and the prison would show up at eight. And Baker would say Mr President this is what we think you ought to do today. And the area that we ought to concentrate and he'd say, Okay Jim but I don't like that part and he said what he didn't like something. He really had strong reason for not liking it. He always knew who he was. So I came to admire him. A lot of philosophical thing I think he was still. In the thirties it came to race, for example, he didn't quite understand how that was going but I thought he was very important standing up to the Russians and making a standard about the Berlin Wall. And he made the country optimistic. You know that they came to believe that they could do what they needed to do i WanNa do it. He had that kind of cheerfulness about him. And he didn't think rolled off back. You know. Talk. Sam Donaldson I've talked about this a lot. Sam Game, we have the same feelings who are the two that were invited. To Nancy's. To Nancy's furor and I spoke and Sam was there as well. The only two correspondence because we don't wasn't in a way that we try to see what he was up to. We had an appreciation where he got right and also what he got wrong we both chain. And he could handle it. You want to save.

"Tuesday Wad squad. You know one of our favorite funny man passed away yesterday. Very upsetting Jerry Stiller. Maybe most famous at least recently for his role as George Castanza's dad on Seinfeld but he was in so so so much. More so getty. What's your favorite Jerry Stiller performance? It's gotta be Seinfeld. That's like you know the most iconic possible Steph. But one that I kind of revisited. Today that I almost forgot about was his role. Is Maury Boston in Zoo? Lander where he has the part where he yells for. Christ's sakes it's a casserole. Sheila very very iconic line and moment He rock though like everything that he did was was really awesome. Yeah and like I mean the head of a dynasty comedians. But Yeah Lander is. I wouldn't even say slept on. Everyone loves that movie. I think that his role is something that people should definitely talk about Meyer. He's just he's so outrageous on screen. It's hard to look away. He's doing a similar thing as he did with Costanza but it works. And I'm planning it's transferable what performance of his rethink about today. Oh man so just a week ago. I watched heavyweight which movies. It's a about a bunch of little kids in the nineties. Going to fat camp and Ben Stiller plays like terrible like I dunno guy who takes over the camp but he takes over the camp from Jerry Lewis His dad but not in the movie and he has this iconic those like. Don't let anyone else your checks because he basically gets bought out but even in a small cameo role like that. He's so excellent. And I like we had a full discussion. Me and my house may about that moment like a week ago. So it's it's definitely top of mind for me. Yeah he rocks Rip The man. As I'M GONNA be calling him from now on cool guys really funny dude Well that's very sweet and guess what another perfect temperature check if you need to. Laugh Watch pretty much any movie. That Jerry Stiller is in and we will catch up with you tomorrow..

"It's Tuesday may twelfth. I'm his and getting resnick. And this is what a day where we just found out we reached the bottom every streaming service. Yeah did you know that there was a bottom now? My computer shut down. I was terrified today. Show the Supreme Court takes on the question of trump's tax returns than some headlines. But first the latest Stephens Smith who had worked did digital work for people to judge cited the other day how you know Travis Scott takeover a fortnight in how that was a really creative way to think about that if we could do that with. Joe Biden Joe Biden projected against the Grand Canyon. You that might be a little bit ambitious. Yeah all right. That was democratic. Strategist Liz Smith with an interesting idea about how to get young people excited about Joe Biden. So I guess we're GONNA go sicko mode on the whole election all right well in news. The White House is now requiring most administration officials to wear masks when in the West Wing taking a step that are local. Grocery stores did weeks ago but the rules are not expected to apply to president trump or vice president pence for weeks. Pinson trump have downplayed the need for asks even as the CDC recommends them for use in public settings as we talked about on the show yesterday. All this comes after a military valley to trump and a spokeswoman for Mike Pence tested positive for cove in nineteen. It's also caused the country's top three health officials to at least partially isolate themselves and today those three that. Cdc Director Robert Redfield FDA Commissioner Steven Hahn and Dr Anthony Fauci at the NIH are going to remotely testify before Congress the Republican Chair of the committee. Senator Lamar Alexander has to appear remotely after a staff member in his office tested positive for the virus so that's a bit on how cove in nineteen spread through the upper branches of our government super tate even while the White House and Kurds estates and businesses to reopen more on that tomorrow. But today we're going to zoom in on a story out of South Dakota so get in you want to get US started. Yes so this is one of the states where the Governor Christie GNOME did not issue a statewide. Stay at home order. Because she said that. Doing so would flatten the curve. So much that the stay at home order would have to remain in place longer to be effective. Okay South Dakota has about three thousand. Five hundred cases of Corona virus and has seen a large outbreak at the smithfield foods meat packing plants Sioux falls still gnome is encouraging normalcy and even declined a local shelter in place measure in the area around the meat packing plant on Friday threatened to sue to native American tribes the Cheyenne River Sioux tribe. And the lawsuit tribe over road checkpoints that they have set up in order to prevent the spread of. Cova nineteen to their reservations. Now she contends to the checkpoints or interfering with the state's traffic and no order to try to take them down within forty eight hours otherwise she would take them to court okay so that's terrible while the deadline has passed so the checkpoints are still up. What are the tribes saying? Cheyenne River Sioux tribe chairman. Harold Fraser has said that for the twelve thousand people who live on the reservation. Establishing these checkpoints is a matter of life and death. We're going to stay put. I you know this is right now. With the lack of resources we have medically. I mean this is our best to we have right now is to try to prevent it and and I believe that this is a good Good practice and if we should ever get it You know again. It's a good tool for us to use to isolate as as quick as we can and Virus according to frazier the tribe has only eight hospital beds and the closest hospital with an intensive care unit is three hours away. Both of the tribes have kept up their own. Stay at home order during this time. Despite the state's actions freezer has said that federal tribal treaties allow for them to monitor who travels through reservations. But no one has argued that they are supposed to consult with state officials on temporary closures of non-tribal roads. Essentially you have a group of people that are attempting to keep themselves safe. Who have no historical reason to trust the US government or branches of it and a governor who hasn't taken much in the way of restrictive action taking issue with what they're doing. Yeah and the threat is obviously very real. Native American around the country have been hit hard by cove in nineteen a tragic example is the Navajo nation. That's right so nation encompasses parts of New Mexico Arizona and Utah an area almost three times the size of Massachusetts. According to reports there are about one hundred seventy five thousand people who live on the reservation and they've already seen about three thousand cases and at least one hundred people have died. According to estimates nation were considered a state it would have the highest per capita rate of corona virus cases in the country behind just New York and compounding. This problem is that many of the preventative measures. That people can sometimes take for granted in protecting against the virus just aren't available to everyone. Who IS THERE? For instance something. Like a third of the homes. Don't have running water. Many family members may live together in a house which makes quarantine difficult if somebody gets sick not to mention things like the grocery store can be hours away. An Internet access can also be scarce. Yeah and the nomination like the tribes in South Dakota has also taken steps. In order to stem the spread strict lockdowns or put in place weeks ago to prevent people from leaving home and less in emergency situations. But what else is happening? Yes so in the cares. Act The first relief package passed by Congress in March. There was this eight billion dollar amount that was allocated to native American communities around the US but it took until just last week for the Navajo nation to get their six hundred million dollar chunk of that money. Leadership has said that that delay cost lives. Local leaders have had to take their own steps in order to fight the virus like distributing vital supplies and information and now there are at least two teams from Doctors Without Borders who are assisting and expect to be there until June. So we'll be tracking these stories as they develop but we also have some news happening today. That is unrelated to covert nineteen from the Supreme Court. That's right so today. The Supreme Court will hear arguments in three cases regarding trump's financial records two of the cases. Involved congressional subpoenas for his tax returns and bank records. This goes back to last year. When Congress was seeking to see if trump tried to skimp on taxes by misstating the value of real estate holdings they also wanted to look into whether he had any financial ties to foreign governments or entities. Seems important trump argues that Congress doesn't have the authority to get those records congresses that they do so put simply. This is a test of whether a president can ignore a congressional subpoena and could have big implications for the power of congressional oversight. Which I know sounds a little bit nerdy but it is an incredibly big deal. The other case involves state subpoenas for trump's financial records. It stems from an investigation and grand jury trial in New York trump contends that he as president has complete immunity from criminal investigations. While in office. You know the whole I could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue Defense. It's a joke but a lawyer for trump actually said president couldn't be prosecuted for that while in office New York. City's says that's bullshit and all of these cases lower courts have decided against trump. The Supreme Court is going to give us their final ruling by the end of June. So we will update you as soon as this gets decided. And that's the latest.

I was really shocked surprised if they can do that did that give an ableman of balanced before you just looked at Joe borough receivers like this and they're going to throw the ball over the are we need to take the passing game but they start to get their running game clicking too going to be a huge problem so in my opinion offers to do something on the back end to make sure they can affect those receivers you talk about that secondary but on the other side do you think the Lsu Secondary Can Stand and they pressured that young man you know he has I think he rates he ranks one twentieth and the FBI and passes against pressure that's very very so you know LSU is going to come after him try to make him make quick decisions that's what you WanNa do. The young quarterback make him make quick decisions and get his hands he didn't do that against Florida he probably struggle against LSU trying to say anything and the crazy thing is I think if all Stevens plays really well you're talking about holding this Lsu offense to twenty eight thirty points so nick's you gotta get me more than that and that's sites a hard ask for a true freshman and Lsu defense has not been world by any stretch but he's GonNa have to make a lot of places passing game and continue to go tic TAC borough I keep waiting for this Lsu defense to click with all the talent they have maybe this is the week that it happens one thing I know being in bridging South Dakota good is presented fine Mazda feel a impart by it's still find your steel dealer at steel dealers dot com no one's been part of more first days of work than car heart and in the same way rookies have to keep earning respect car heart never stops earning the respect of hardworking like.

"I think a lot of South Dakota or at least people within my district are incredibly willing to if you're registered as a Republican and or if you're leaning more conservative than independent, they're more willing to vote for you. If they've might you and they understand what you stand for and you're having a face to face conversation with them. I mean, of course you're always gonna come across people that no matter what won't vote for you and you smile and you move on and you realize that that's not going to happen that often in district fourteen. So I wanna go back and ask you a little bit about your graduate school and training. So you you have an MA in political science in you actually wrote a thesis on state legislators, responsiveness to constituent policy preference. So at love to hear a little bit more about that and how that sort of economic study of state legislature in public policy, how that informs or doesn't form you're run for office to a state legislature. I think my master's thesis definitely did affect my running. So early in my life is not normal for thirty. Oh, to be running for state house. But yeah, so I began researching in twenty twelve the disconnect between South Dakota state legislators and their constituents policy preference. So in our state, we have seen a lot of Boertien legislation come up within our state legislature year after year. And what I found was, although these state legislators were voting for all of these different bills that were continuously creating bands within our state of women's choice. The voters were not accepting their bills and they recruiting initially measure. Shire's which if you don't know is a process that we have in South Dakota so we can actually create our own laws without state legislator. It's a citizen approved initiative basically. So they're creating these initiative measures and they were also overturning bills with referendums gene that these abortion bans were too strict, and we're not what they agreed with that just connected is still prevalent today. I have talked to so many voters about their concerns and many people feel as if they don't have a voice at our state house. A good example of that would be an initiative measure that we recently saw in or that we recently passed in twenty sixteen and that was a measure initiative measure twenty two that actually revised date campaign finance and. Lobbying laws, and it created a publicly funded campaign finance program and ethics committee. So this past people believe that this was needed in our state and our state legislature, they actually defied it and wrote a Bill to repeal it. So they said that they respected the intent of the voters and that they didn't believe that it was the right way to create this whole new process. But there still bits and pieces of that initiative measure that have not been fixed and people are really angry about it. They feel like they were told they were wrong and that they weren't smart enough to, you know, create this piece of legislation in, you know, our initiative measure. People were really upset that this Bill was passed. By our Representative to not initiate this initiative measure. So what what do you think then is the solution to that? I mean, obviously, just listening to your constituents, but do you think that there are kind of more systematic ways that you know if you're lucky to the legislature that you can make sure that the legislature is acting with the intention of the constituents?.

"Each can vote for two candidates and the top two who received the most about will be the Representative for that district. Okay. And currently there are two Republicans in this seat. That's correct. Yep. And they are also running for reelection every two years. We vote for new state representatives and senators. Okay. Into where in South Dakota is district fourteen? What is this district like? Just make fourteen is in South Dakota, which is in the southeast corner of the state, and my district is pretty large. It is in central south eastern central areas do falls. There are many different types of helpful here. So it is mainly middle class, but we do see a lot of blue collar Dem's and we also have an area of the district that is a little bit wealthier. And SU, foes is the largest city in South Dakota. And you know, usually I think of cities, and I think a little more progressive Democrats. But of course, there's two Republicans in this district right now, what I? What is false? Like politically. Does wane a little bit more liberal than the rest of the state. He people are a little bit more moderate if they are Republicans, although you do see, I mean as you would anywhere any sort of Republican or democrat for that matter within the city compared to the rest of the state, though it's definitely more liberal than than the rest. And so I know you've been out knocking doors allot talking to yet. So what are the, what are the sorts of things you're hearing from people both in terms of issues and then also kind of how your campaign is being received by the voters? Yeah, so I am almost come -pletely done knocking the district for the very first time I will get done on Friday a lot of what I'm hearing. The number one issue is education. So I live in a district where our school district recently has grown in our schools have become incredibly crowded, and our city just passed a hundred ninety million dollar bond. So we can build a brand new country, middle and high school, and regardless of political affiliation, people were supporting this and mentioning this to me out on the campaign trail, even though it is a city issue. I think that reflects really well regarding state politics because regardless of political affiliation, people care about. Making sure that our kids are getting that education, they need to succeed later in their life. So -education definitely the number one issue I'm hearing about. I'm also hearing a lot about healthcare. We are one of the states that chose to not expand Medicaid after we lost federal funding. So people are really concerned about that and wanna see that expanded and they also are concerned about the cost of insurance. So that's another issue in. We're also hearing a lot about the economy. So our two main sources of revenue for our state or tourism and agriculture, and in order to make sure that we are always looking to expand and create a more vibrant economy within South Dakota. We need to make sure that we're looking at innovative ways to grow. And I think part of that means making. Ensure that we're finding jobs available for the younger generations. I know as a thirty something year old here in South Dakota that I have seen so many friends leave the state because they cannot find the jobs or the wages necessary to to stay here to support their families, and they're looking for those professional careers that we just can't provide right now. So I think it's really important to make sure that we have a healthy welcoming environment to come to one that companies would love to grow in, and you know, and really find a home in falls or or in South Dakota ensued. Do people when you speak to them at the doors to these seem receptive to voting for democrat, do they just want someone who will work on the issues they care about? What is the kind of feel like when you're talking to them? I have met a lot of people who. Are incredibly receptive to voting for a democrat, it's really all about getting out there and talking to voters and letting them know that their voice matters..

"But I guess you have to always say, you have to be the change you want to see. So maybe that the direction we're going. But yeah, I just on. Honored to be among all these native women and all these native candidates that are running for office. South Dakota has been a state for a hundred and twenty nine years and never has there been this many native candidates on the ballot. There are ten that we know of in South Dakota. So every reservation, there's nine and South Dakota we go to every one of them can vote for at least one the pine ridge reservation wine from their five on the ballot that they can vote for on the state level. And everywhere else has at least two. It's a huge change that's coming about. That's awesome. If people want to support your campaign, how can they do that? I do have an act brew account. Alexander Frederick for secretary of state. I am online. I have a website read Drik for South Dakota, all spelled out dot com. And I'm on Facebook, Alexandra, Frederick for South Dakota, secretary of state three, we'll we'll put a link for your website up on our website as well. And people should check out your Facebook page because that's where all those excellent videos are. I know and I got, I got tagged as not a real person on Facebook, so I can't boost any of my pole. Russian stuff. So it's it's totally grassroots, total organic, how this the word is spreading. So yeah, I fought with them for months now and I just can't. I can't get him to boost the post and recognize me as a real person. Well, everyone who's listening to this should go on your Facebook page. I'm doing it right now. Everybody else do it too. I love your videos because they're just they're so attentive. And you know, I really loved being able to look back at you in a rodeo, and you had video just I think just this past weekend where you were you were canning and preserving foods and I, it was. It's just great that that you're so real and authentic. Yeah. Hopefully, you know, people see that and I'm, I'm not putting on a show. This is how I live, and I just want to work hard for my state and my people and hopefully I can do that. Come November. We'll find out. Well, Sandra, thank you so much for talking to us. This is it's really fantastic. It's been so inspirational. We've spoken to cherise, David's and we're going to be speaking to a couple of other native women coming up and it's just it's so exciting this year, and it's so exciting to to have people like you running in South Dakota and just putting it all out there and say, I'm gonna, you know, just travel everywhere, and we love it. Heavier on this is Kelly with too broad stalking politics. I'm here in this segment with Erin Healy who is running for the South Dakota house of representatives in district. Fourteen. Hi Erin. Hi Kelly. Thanks for joining me. Yeah, thanks for having me a always fun to talk to people about politics and you know really get a grasp on what's going on in different parts of the nation. Yeah. So can you start with what we usually ask? Our first question which is just, you know, tell me a little bit about yourself and why you decided to run for the state house of representatives. Yeah. Well, I have been involved in politics for quite some time in one form or another..

"So well, I was in college and when we decided what we're going to do with our lives after we got married, I said, I just wanna have cows and I wanna ranch and I wanna have my horses, and that's how I wanna raise my kids. So I went out and I got a loan bought my own cattle and consent. I've been operating and we do grass-fed beef because they have a lot of grass out here. So I think it's important in. Integral to maintain that grassland also create a product from there that we can live off of. I've also seen some video of you in rodeos, but you had to give up your your rodeo season this year. I did. It was it's sad. Sometimes we were leaving some events and people were pulling in their pickups and trailers. I think you know, it could have been entered up this weekend. I would have been here totally different. You know, I haven't been able to ride as much and it's been hard on me, I guess. So if it was attack or fight, but I think is totally worth it. So Celtic Ota is an enormous stayed and in run a running a statewide election like this, how, how do you manage? I mean, what is that look like in terms of actually can painting in in getting to places it was pretty much rear nominated. It was like, what do we do now? And there wasn't really anybody there to say, you know, give us a play by play, how you're supposed to do things. You know, we, we've done time campaigns. I, I ran my husband's campaign when he ran for tribal council in that tiny. Compared to what we're doing now. So it took a little while to warm up to start fundraising to get to these places. I know we put a lot of our own money in, but we just hit the road and we started travelling. My husband works for the school district, so he has the summers off which worked out for us. So all month, end of June through July, in the beginning of August, we were traveling and we put over ten thousand miles on our one vehicle. And I know we have another vehicle when we, we did take a horses to pregnant stuff. We, he's that one. It's been just nonstop. But now that he's back at work, we're kinda home and we strategize for the week and I'll go to different meetings and different areas. I know sometimes my son and I just last week Jove two and a half hours one way to attend our meeting and turn around and come home. But you know, it's what we've been doing to try to get in touch with as many people as we can. It is. It's a huge state and its rural. So there's not a lot of people that are gonna be paying attention to Facebook or social media. And like a lot of people don't really watch TV anymore. We have a lot of streaming services, so we've been trying to go face to face and bad all the celebrate and being a bunch of parades. So it's been a learning experience. What are some of the things that people are talking about as you're going around campaigning? What are some of the things that people are sort of asking you to fix or or asking you how what your position is on what they want is to be included. We're hearing from people like they're just ready for a change. They want something more south Dakota's had a lot of scandals over the past few decades since it's been. It's been Republican sincerety and the scandals. Have become outrageous. And so everybody's wanting this change. They want somebody in there who's who is hard working, who isn't a politician from generations. Like I know my opponent his his family had been in politics, and he's a current state auditor. So he's just moving up the ladder..

"Usual. I am one of your hosts so feet, and I'm here with other co host Kelly, hey, Kelly, everybody and joining us tonight for our South Dakota episode is Alex, Andrea Frederick. She's a democrat running for secretary of state in South Dakota. Welcome. I'll Exantia there. Thank you. Thanks for joining us. Can you sort of start us off by telling us a little about yourself and how you came to be running for secretary of state? My name of our vendor Frederick. I'm a lifelong South Dakota. I'm a Oglala Lakota tribal member, and I decided kind of on a whim, but my whole life kinda let up to agreeing to run for secretary state at the democratic convention in June. And the first native woman to be nominated for this position in what is it about the the secretary of state position that's especially appealing to you? You know, how does it sort of match up with your your goals running for office? I think mostly the secretary state here in South Dakota. Handles a lot of the voting and the regulations, everything. What was most important to me was bringing people into the process. There's not a lot of voter turnout and then after the sixteen election, voter turn out with way down. So I wanna bring people in because state is growing as far as population and diversity. So I want everybody to be represented. I heard you talking on a another interview about some of the challenges that especially the populations that are on reservations face with voting. Can you talk some about that voting on the reservation? I know they don't look to us, I guess, has contributing towards the state election, the reservations exist as their own sovereign government. But we're, we still vote in state elections on my reservation, for example, and pine ridge, there have been times where polling places were closed early where voters returned away. We're finding this year that a lot of voter had been purged from the last election, specifically tribal members and also voting location on my sister, and I both went to vote. We lived in the same house and I voted in one precinct and they couldn't find her while she was fifteen miles away in another. Town on their role as she had to go to the other town to vote. So I and it hasn't changed because my mom in that other precinct and it it makes no sense. So it's kind of frustrating, and I think it was meant to turn away native voters, honestly. So you are rancher. I am can user TOA sa- little bit about that and and sort of what that's like living on a ranch. I've, I've never been to a ranch, so I'm interested to hear. Okay. My husband and I, we own operate the oldest ranch in Todd county, South Dakota, stab list with his six. Great grandfather, I believe, and it was started same time the reservation, but reservation was started and it stayed within the family since then. And so he's his family has been here since nineteen four in the same spot. I always wanted to be ranch. Grew up with Calvin grow with horses, and we'd always been involved in that sort of lifestyle..

"And seems to be fairly fairly positive and not very trolled up yet. I think part of that, I think we'd to who south combs tend to be, but I think our communications director, Aaron is doing a great job with it into as as you're communicating with people around the state Democrats, and maybe people who are you know, independent, but, but trying to decide this year, what are some of the issues that people are really concerned with what are, what are the kinds of things they're going to be basing their decisions on this year. So in South Dakota, we really try to focus on. We talk a lot about South Dakota values, which are honest tea and integrity. Beyond that when we have to talk about issues, we like folks on education, health care. I think that what something is kind of rare to South Dakota is corruption and transparency and South Dakota state government for a long time now been struggling with being transparent to voters, and we've had a couple of corruption scandals over the last few years where we've seen. And you know multiple millions of dollars disappear and just trying to explain that to voters. So they have a better grasp on what's happening. But beyond that, we're looking to expand Medicaid in the state. That's a big conversation. It would give health care to over fifty thousand people in the state of South Dakota and fifty thousand people south Dakota's. A lot of people don't even have a million folks in the state, so that would make a big difference. And then beyond that, we're really pushing education few years ago, we were able to increase the teacher, pay the state. It took us from dead last two now like fourth last in the country, but that's big for us. And then beyond that, we're also looking to stress. I'm a pre k education program to say, we're one of only a couple of states in the country that doesn't offer any assistance for pre-k Shen. I think we all know that better education up change. You have in the early start learning the better you're going to be off in the future. And speaking of transparency in government. I know that South Dakota has a lot of issues on the ballot coming in November and a lot of them seem to have to do with with democracy and elections. And I was wondering if you could talk a little bit about those. Yes. So one of the bigger ones is amendment w which O'Connor curtail campaign finance spending a little bit and what lobbyists are able to do. You know, it's great that south coast very open, you have great opportunity reach out here, legislators, but sometimes you might have a little bit a little too much and lobbyists really tend to kind of take advantage of legislators in that sense. And sometimes the people as well. We had a measure that pass back in point sixteen called IM twenty two that really restricted what lobbyists could do and what you could spend regarding campaign finance and the state legislature that was the first thing they did when they got back in session twenty seventeen was overturned, I'm twenty two and. Really pissed off the voters, and they came back with another measure to kind of to bring it back. And I think we're gonna see a pass in November. Excellent. And let's talk about some of the the candidates on the ballot to a specially think Billy Sutton who's running for governors seems to be really interesting, and there was a recent poll that actually showed him ahead, which is really amazing. And so the Billy Sutton in, was he in the state house prior to this. He's been in the state legislature for last eight years in the state Senate. Okay. And he's running against Christie Nome. Who is the US congress rap in South Dakota. So can you talk about that that race and in about Billy specifically? Yeah. So I don't think you'd ask for better candidate than Billy sudden he's got a phenomenal experience serving last eight years in the state Senate being the Senate minority leader for the last four truly understand South Dakota. He's got a true unique story that I don't think most candidates have about little over ten years ago. He was a professional rodeo ride Ryder saddlebronc one of the top in the country, and he was riding in a rodeo and my not South Dakota and the horse. He was riding bucks on them in the shoot at pinned him against the backboard where there was missing patting and instantly paralyzed from the waist down and that truly changes..

"Are you listening? Hey, everyone. This is Kelly with two broad talking politics. I'm here with my co host Sophie. Hey, Sophie. Hey, Kelly. And today we are talking about the politics of South Dakota which I'm super excited about and joining us for an overview conversation is Sam Parkinson who is the executive director of the South Dakota? Democratic Party. Hi, Sam. And hey, everybody listening. Thanks for having me. So first of all, I'm super excited that South Dakota has a democrat party. I think a lot of cones are too. But before we get into that, maybe could tell US Olympic about your background and how you came to be working for the Democratic Party. Yes. So I've been with the South Dakota Democratic Party for a little over three years now since I left college and I kinda got roped into it after working as an intern in the state legislature, and then taking part in one of our young Dem's programs called yell, which is young, elected legislative leaders, and it helps assign kids to state legislative campaigns and any other political work in the state. And from there I graduated college and the chair said, hey, we have a spot open for you if you're interested in the want to come work for us. So I came on as the finance director a few years ago and then became executive director in April of twenty seventeen. Have you always been democrat? I mean, it sounds like you were from college at least, but did you did you grow up in a democratic family? Would that look like for you? Yes. So I don't think I really found myself politically until I did that internship in peer in the state legislature, and they kind of made you make a choice of which caucus you wanted to work for? I grew up in a very political family. I was born and raised for the most part in northern Virginia while both my parents worked in DC and we're involved in politics as congressional staffers at lobbyists, and we moved out South Dakota, but neither of them is a registered democrat. My dad's a lifelong Republican..
