"Aren't some candidates already exploring running for fifth congressional district this afternoon at five with me, leave at USA, NewsRadio one thousand KT, okay? It's a fascinating how much these these people? Just love the kids don't they just love the kids. Big hearts, New York. They have now cut the funding for the Special Olympics. They've cut it by one hundred and fifty thousand dollars this year. I think it's two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. So it was a higher than that earlier. They're making cuts on that. And this which is interesting, of course, because the evil Trump administration had just threatened to cut. Funding for Special Olympics. And that is that was one of the most hateful things now. Sure it had been proposed for several years and everyone knew it wasn't going to actually happen. Because the budget means basically, nothing it's just a legal requirement and a statement of of potential cuts that could theoretically happen, but won't right? So there was never a chance of it actually happening. And the the media knew that, and they're also it also had happened several years before and no one said anything about it. But they decided to make it into an issue. So they could get a couple of news cycles. Right. Well, here here's the thing. I mean, you know, in New York, they had to cut it because well, they cut it for the the the wick program right to be able to feed children and. No, it was a housing thing. Right to get the poor people into housing Albano wasn't quite that. I mean sure they had some increases for lawmakers salaries. You know, what they what they were just wanted to increase those lawmakers salaries seventy nine thousand one hundred and ten thousand for lawmakers and then governor Andrew Cuomo because there's no money in the Cuomo family had his salary potentially increased from one hundred and eighty thousand to two hundred and fifty thousand quarter of a mill for good old Andrew who's doing. Great job a great job with this lighting up buildings honor infanticide. Just great great. Great. Can I ask you one question that may fall under the game show category? How libertarian are you you are a huge supporter of the Special Olympics. In fact, you have held probably more charity events to benefit the Special Olympics than anybody. I know. Don't get up right now. I don't I don't. But should the federal government? Nope. Be spending one dollar. You. Don't even have finish it no on the Special Olympics or the regular Olympics, Ohio NBA billionaire owners stadiums or no NFL giveaways, how how about the federal government spends zero dollars on sports. That's a crazy one. I love sports. I know you don't care about them. But any Olympics whether special or not should get zero dollars of funding from the federal government is not the federal government's role to support sports. If you want to support it, then you should support it, which is what by the way you did year after year after year after year as supporting Special Olympics because you believed it was really important still do and you still do it's not to say anything about how important it is. The federal government is not designed to to promote athletic activities. It's not designed to to make people feel good. That is not the role this. Special olympics. It'd be a great charity, and it's a great event, and it means a lot. But like we're doing a piece coming up on something called a night to shine. Which is something. Tim tebow's cherry has done. And unlike it's not sports, it is basically a prom night for people with special needs. They kind of get a red carpet rolled out. It's an incredible event. He's created Tim tebow has done an amazing thing here, but should the federal government beginning Tim tebow money, so he can handle a night to shine. No. It's a fantastic event. But it is not dances. And sports are not things that the federal government should be funding. And we wonder why we have no money, and we're twenty two trillion dollars in counting in debt and over one hundred trillion in long term liabilities because we're doing things that the government was never designed to do. It was designed to promote the general welfare. Now. What does that mean? And that's the most open crazy liberal part of what of of of. Let's talk about that. Yeah..

"Don't know they don't they don't care. They don't care. It's been several of these issues with them. It was the the Baker issue to just a few months ago. They ruled on a really teeny little section of that. They didn't actually rule on the religious rights aspect of it at all. So yeah, it's it's bad. All the way round the executive order is bad in the supreme court's not doing their job. So let's go to the poll. Here the poll is President Trump just announced he's committed to funding Special Olympics after Betsy DeVos announced cutting funding earlier this week, and do you think the government should be funding the special because it's going to be interesting because I think the typical response would be okay, it's not a government program. But it is a feel-good issue and Trump's on that side of it. I'll be interested to see how this works out. I will say they're probably going to side with Trump probably. But it's again, this is not necessarily audience of the show. It's the audience of the blaze Twitter feed. So we can kind of talk about them in Georgia Torey. But that's an interesting thing. I don't know. I don't think it's so important. I think to think through these things to really think through issues like this because that's how you get to the basis of principal, and what you really believe in is just because of the fields. And you're like, okay. Yes. You know, I believe in the fields. But really what is it? If you really believe that the government should be small not large than you can't. And you can't favors can't. I mean, there was a case where the conservatives on the court were against a ruling based on the commerce clause, which it was about marijuana. At the time, you know, conservatives generally against marijuana becoming legal, and they ruled against this guy who wanted to grow and sell it without crossing state lines on. And there was the question about it was a commerce clause question, and they could have set a precedent that would have freed us from this awful thing with the commerce clause that we've had all of this time. And instead they went the other way because they didn't want marijuana at that point. And it was a missed opportunity. And I think like you gotta think long-term here think think more than one step think more about what what the tweet of the day is and go months years decades deeper and the easiest way to do that if you have principles because then you don't have to worry about making decisions on the moment. You make them for long-term. It's news and white matters. Thanks for joining please subscribe rate. Tell people about the podcast, and we do this every day. So we'll see Monday. Every day.

"Like it was here. I couldn't after she said this and before Trump kind of ruined it for me right after she said this. I couldn't wait to see all of the the crazy support people are gonna start throwing in the Special Olympics. It would have been saying, here's here's a few examples. This was after after Trump decided to do his travel ban. The ace twenty four million flooded into the ACLU and one weekend twenty four million because people were so passionate about this, exactly. That number grew to seventy nine million within three within three months after Trump's first one hundred days, the ACLU was up eight thousand percent in private donations. The southern poverty Law Center was up fourteen hundred percent gosh, Planned Parenthood went up one thousand percent in private nations because they thought it was an get fully-funded, right? Which is just making our point. I mean, at least part of the point about that they could just be privately funded absolutely with Romney and big bird. Remember, he said, you know, big bird. They were talking about cutting funding for and then I go he wants to kill big bird, not going anywhere. You would have been supported by the private injury and the same thing with Special Olympics. There is absolutely zero chance that the Special Olympics goes away if we stopped funding which had no chance of happening anyway. It was a budget proposal that was not going to be accepted. So totally overblown. And I'll say like this is a kind of a quiz on how libertarian are you can get into this. Because should we be giving money to billionaire owners of major league franchises to build their stadiums? To me, no, absolutely not zero dollar should go to that. 'cause should we be giving money to the regular Olympics me? No. We the government should not be supporting sports of any kind. Should they be giving money to these Special Olympics? This is the hardest one. And to me, the answer is no there is no reason for the federal government. No matter how wonderful the program is obviously, it's a great program. But let me give you another example real quick. Jason. We just did a did a piece that's coming up. We're gonna be airing it in the next couple of weeks for something called night to shine. Which is something that Tim tebow started it is basically kind of a special really extravagant sort of prom night for people with special needs. And they get to have this big like. Awesome night. It's a really really cool thing that Tim tebow started should the federal government be sponsoring that. It's a great program. I mean, it's an awesome thing. And it really helps kids really helps kids specialties. But of course, not that is not the government's job to make to to have people be able to race or dance with each other. That should why do I even have to say that it's insanity. And yet it's so controversial. We can't get the president to stick by his own people for for even a week. And I would go even more libertarian than that because I would say like our entire welfare system. Really? We should not be funding it in the way, we're we're funding it right now at twenty twenty two trillion in debt, and I just I was writing down a few figures, I looked at how much we were spending just on welfare the government was spending towards that before LBJ the government. Majestic for inflation spent ninety one billion on welfare on means tested welfare programs that include healthcare that included everything. Now, there's a chart that I have them go and pull up that. Art. This is how much we spend on welfare today. One point one trillion so ninety four to one point one trillion since one thousand nine hundred sixty.

"Been to the Special Olympics. I think it's incredible. And I just thought hey funding. I heard about it this morning. I have overridden by people refunding spectrum. NPR correspondent Joseph Shapiro is here to provide some context for us. Hey, Joe, he also. So I'm guessing this didn't go exactly the way the Trump administration expected. No, the Trump administration ended up giving their critics of free kick. Right Special Olympics is a pretty popular American institution and the proposed cuts gave critics chance to say look at this administration's cruel budget. It's taken away programs for kids with intellectual disabilities. I mean, how much money is even at stake here. How much are we talking not very much Betsy DeVos, the education secretary is trying to cut her department's budget by ten percent bath seven billion dollars. But the Special Olympics program in schools. It's a tiny tiny part of that seventeen point six million. So by creating a controversy over Special Olympics, the Trump administration, just what its critics note these much greater much more significant cuts to programs for people disability, what sorts of cuts critics say. There are potentially billions. Even tens of billions of dollars of cuts to social security disability programs and Medicaid. Plus, the Trump administration's decision this week that it wants the entire Affordable Care Act every provision struck down in court. That loss has private insurance can't deny health insurance to someone with a pre existing medical condition, and that sort of the definition of being disabled you have a preexisting condition. An ObamaCare ended annual and lifetime limit on. How much care people get these are things that can determine do people get the healthcare they need or even where they live in a nursing home in their own home. The groups that represent people with disabilities. They normally speak in one voice or so many different disabilities. Intellectual disabilities. Physical disabilities. Blind people deaf people, but by the end of this week. These groups have come together with a more unified voice to attack the cuts to their programs, and it all started with this response to the attempt to cut Special Olympics. Was there ever a real chance that congress was going to go along with these cuts to the Special Olympics? Anyway, no, almost certainly not just to politically unpalatable. The point is that Special Olympics gets most of its money from private donations, and that government shouldn't fund it. But this was the third year in a row that Special Olympics guts is your own out of the education department's budget. It didn't get through congress then and it wasn't going to happen. This year. Can you just take a moment to remind us a little bit about the history of the Special Olympics? Sure Special Olympics was created as one of the first places where people with intellectual disabilities were seen and accepted Eunice Shriver. The sister of president John Kennedy. She started it and the first games were held in nineteen sixty eight the fiftieth anniversary was just last July. And at the time there weren't a lot of chances for people with intellectual disabilities to participate in sports, many lifting institutions most were even allowed to go to school. This was several years before the wall that said kids with disabilities have the same right to get an education as anyone else. But Special Olympics has changed a lot since then. These are now sports activities for children and adults. And there's an emphasis now on what's called unified sports. That's where people disabilities play on teams with people without disabilities. And the idea is to create inclusion, and that's the focus of the school programs. That are supported by the department of education.

"The special. Olympics. I it was proposed funding would be cut then the administration at a change of heart. The money stays ABC's. Lana Zak bringing us up to speed and what happened. Another one of those examples of a crisis created and solved by the Trump administration. So they had proposed in their budget to cut funding for Special Olympics thatch was. There was a very strong backlash to that. But education secretary DeVos hadn't been in the uncomfortable position, which was really apparent as she tried to justify this decision of supporting this recommendation that was coming from the Trump administration's budget, and she said that she supports a Special Olympics that she has given her own money to the Special Olympics. But that as a private nonprofit that the. That they could rely on philanthropy instead of money from the federal government, of course, as the fervor became more more high pitched, President Trump stepped in and said that he is in fact, I'm going to make sure that it's funded. He tweeted and and told reporters the Special Olympics will be funded. I just told my people I want to fund the Special Olympics. That's ABC's. Lana zak. Well, what happens now to air travelers?

"But here we are Tim give me thirty seconds of the psychological underpinnings of what we just saw you were able to kind of mouth point by point this defense of Trump's elitism. Well, you know, he the interesting thing about Donald Trump is first and foremost, he's a performance artist. He doesn't care about policy. He doesn't really care about the people around him. All he cares about is winning what's right in front of him by performing. But what goes on when he does this is he wears his insecurities on his. Sleeve all the time. He always talks about what a great student. He was when he really wasn't degrade student. I'm very smart. Okay. When he punctuates a sentence with. Okay. It's almost like a poker shell it's something that he's deeply insecure about, you know, I'm really rich. I'm worth ten billion dollars. Okay. Women. Really love me. I'm very good looking. Okay. I've got a great house, okay. On and on and on because he wants to be reinforced by the crowd. He's in front of that. He's worth something that he knows. He's not. And I think the tricky line. He's towing right now is he's telling this crowd. I'm a populist just like you what? In fact, he's not. And he doesn't really care about their struggles. Really? Appreciate both of our guests appearing tonight. Okay. Tim O'Brien just kidding about the. Okay. Thank you, gentlemen. See both of you. I'm sure on broadcast of Bill Maher and coming up that sound you might have heard earlier today that could have been the administration backing a bus over the cabinet secretary in a major reversal when we. Come back. Personally approved. I just I think it, yes. Or no, we'll do the eighteen million dollar cut of the funding for Special Olympics. Now, I didn't personally get involved in that I want to tell you whoever came up with whoever came up with that idea, though, Embi gets special Olympic gold medal for insensitivity. This has not been a great week. This wasn't a particularly good day for the education secretary, Betsy DeVos. She was back on the hill. As you saw today this time before Senate appropriations members demanding to know, why her department plan does Eero out government funding for the Special Olympics of all things after a barrage of negative headlines. Then we got this today from the president. The Special Olympics will be funded. I just told my people I wanna fund the Special Olympics. I have overridden by people with funding this special. He has people DeVos defended herself. And the administration's change writing this, quote, I am pleased and grateful. The president is see eye to eye on the issue and that he has decided to fund our Special Olympics grant, this is funding. I have fought for behind the scenes over the last several years while the folks at deadspin word having it as they put it that DeVos who wants to defunding Special Olympics smiles dumbly gets thrown under the bus then lies the uproar started Tuesday when DeVos testify testify before the Wisconsin democratic congressman Mark poke can the congressman noted today. This is the third time. The administration has tried to eliminate funding. He says this was not a one off mistake where President Trump is making a correction or having a change in heart, rather, President Trump and secretary DeVos could not take one more day of bad news cycle, then he adds by the way can someone pull Betsy from under the. The bus another break for us when we come back celebrating an annual event that happened to take place just today. There. It is last thing before we go tonight. Let's take a moment to savor the closing minutes of opening day. And while it would be a blessing to keep politics out of it entirely. We can't really as many baseball writers pointed out today, our presidents after all have thrown out the first ball on and off for over one hundred years, Jack Kennedy looked kind of great doing it. So did FDR Calvin Coolidge not so much kind of joyless. And there was no sign of Donald Trump today. But the baseball season got underway..

And I just authorized a funding of the Special Olympics. I've been to the Special Olympics. I think it's incredible.

Andy Field ABC news, Washington. And it looks like they won't have to again, just an impromptu news conference with the president before heading off to Michigan saying he will back off budget cuts to the Special Olympics, Massachusetts, congressman Joe Kennedy. He is fighting for the respect of transgender men and women who serve in the US military today. He introduced a resolution on the house floor strongly opposing the president's ban on transgender servicemembers. This house has a chance to not repeat the mistakes of our past. To move one step closer to that sacred promise by telling brave trans men and women in uniform. That they cannot be banned from military service. Because of who they are the non-binding resolution passed to thirty eight to one eighty five one member voted present the president's ban takes effect on April twelfth and would prevent new transgender military enlistment, and we're learning more this hour about a fifteen hour deadly standoff in a hotel room in Manchester, New Hampshire city officials wrapping up a press briefing, and among the speakers, Manchester, mayor Joyce Craig this event serves as a reminder of the occasional danger. We face in this great city, and I appreciate the efforts of all first responders who work to keep us safe. My thoughts are with all of those who are affected by the situation. Manchester police chief Carlo Campano says it's a miracle. Police officers were not injure. The job is an easy isn't easy at all. Each day. We go out there, and we put our bulletproof vest on our uniforms gun belts. When we go out there to serve this community and to protect this community. It's disheartening we have. You have to face incidents like what we have to deal with today when you think about over nine hour period of officers being shot at as much as they were amazing. It is that none of our officers were shot. We're truly blessed that none of those officers were hurt today. Now the standoff began last night around seven thirty after an officer involved shooting outside of the quality in off south, willow street. Stephen Marshall, a Manchester armed and engaging with federal agents and local police minister Marshall was struck by gunfire and was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced it. To individuals remained in the first floor room and over the course of more than twelve hours. Manchester police officers attempted to speak with these individuals in seek a peaceful resolution those two in the hotel now confirmed dead no names released and the sprawling Moakley park in south Boston will be getting a very expensive facelift that story coming.

"To spend that time with him to learn more about him and what he's learned from the mistakes he's made in why he is damn shore determine and certain that he's going to be great in the NFL. We were to Special Olympics and we were in a meeting and it was all of the people involved. It was Kevin Gandhi buddy, who's a sportscenter anchor. And of course, he, he hosts. The Saturday ABC college football studio show with Mack Brown, Jonathan Vilma, and one of my best friends and accompanies a great dude. So I'm in there with with the Gandhi and Holly Rowe. Who is also wonderful and Bill Bennell and Kate Jackson, the executive level coordinating producers on the Special Olympics Project, and we're going through the rundown for the opening ceremonies, which was a live three and a half hour broadcast on ABC to welcome all of the athletes to qualify for the Special Olympics USA games, and it's a very, very important broadcast for all of us because these stories are so much more than sport. The stories are the human element and they are so important. And I was really focused on telling a story about Seth handy. I know of told that story, Seth was a very passionate athlete and it just taken up triathlon and gets hit by a car suffered traumatic brain injury. And is. There's no way that he was gonna live alternately he did and now he's a Special Olympics USA powerlifter and he's just this unbelievably inspirational nude. And I was going to interview his parents on the opening ceremony. And so I was really focused on that as we were going through this rundown, but my interest was piqued when biker Mayfield came up, and I learned that Baker had agreed to send a video a cell phone video or a produced video over there in in Cleveland to the athletes from Oklahoma and from Ohio, wishing them will and championing them as athletes and as people and thanking them for the inspiration that they've given him and that video hadn't shown up the video hadn't yet been received by the ESPN production group. So I tell Bill and Kate and those guys look. I can. I can reach out to Baker if you want me to. And they were like Cher if you think it might work just hit him up. So I sent Baker text and just told him, hey, man, I'm so proud of you. Congratulations again on being the number one, pick in the draft and you are gonna go show the world. What a great ball player. You are a know it. I have a favor to ask on. I don't know if you're even aware of this request.

"Legally i cannot say it may or may not increase your odds somebody can find you believe it's entirely random entirely it is entirely random but i really want to see a gift for schmidt may or may not increase your odds so we are we are still at hayes public house we're enjoying our saint patrick's day i am on course number nine of corn beef i think i've only got seventy courses in me what's that it's purely noon so how how have you done that you question me we we talked a little bit earlier in the show about beers brewed hayes it's rica heather ale correct and it's benefiting the special olympics here in buffalo you've got joe here to tell us a little bit more about the charity tell us about the charity joke so last year was with with autism allies and i think the kind of the cornerstone of his public house as well is that there is a lot of emphasis on community you know with with the taproom people coming in socializing you talk about a lot of different things and with with special olympics the delegation is actually headed by my wife who is is a bit of a multitasker i guess you could say so so last week and we we had the polar plunge in that swing really well just across the street here at sturgis park but for special olympics buffalo it's the name of the delegation is buffalo community emphasis on the community and then there's the stampede just to kind of play on on the buffalo name but special olympics here in town there's there's a lot of individuals adults with disabilities that participated in it to the participated in in high school sports and then afterwards they kind of said oh well i'm retired because there's nothing else to do there's nothing else offered and that's where my wife kind of had the idea that they're not retired this need an opportunity to continue to do to do things within the community community compete know just just to have an opportunity that most other people also have and so and so the buffalo community stampede was started as a delegation within special olympics minnesota so so how a lot of time a lot of efforts put put into that a couple of the athletes.
