"We'll get to that a little bit. Okay so democrats are meeting in atlanta with officials from the democratic senatorial campaign committee and the d._n._c. <hes> these groups want to pick who the democrat democrat is going to be to run the isaac since they're really really concerned about a situation where the governor pick someone to replace johnny isakson soon that person is able to serve january to november build name i._d. As an as an actual senator raise money as an actual senator and then you have three thousand democrats who all wanna get advanced to show up and try to beat them and what happens is the democrats divide themselves up five ways to none and the republican incumbent senator is actually elected. They're deeply worried about that so what the national democrats want to do. Is they want to come down and they want to pick the winner in advance. Now i gotta tell you i am at least intellectually consistent on this. I think primaries do a good thing. I think primaries series forced candidates to do a better job. Take the sixth congressional district. There are a lot of people i know who are mad at me for backing karen handel again in the sixth congressional district considering. She lost against lucy and i get it. I do not think it was her fault. I think there were external factors at play. I think that the outside groups abandoned the ground game. <hes> the race was very close. She would've won. She was let down by outside groups. It was not her fault. She did everything she could in a waiver for the democrats and she lost and not by much. I say give it another another shot. She knows the district's knows the people she has the name i._d. Go fort. I understand that the people they're concerned the other side but <hes> i've had several friends ends of mind say you you know you should also if you're supporting karen you should be browbeating the other people and trying to get them out of the race and i have no intention of doing that and the reason i i have no intention of doing that is because i think a primary makes a stronger general election candidate. Now there are people who say well. They're gonna spend all their money in the primary and they're going to have done for the general i get that's a valid concern but i think it is far better to vet the candidates through a primary process than it is to have them run without a primary and essentially that's what the democrats want they do is they want to deny someone to clarify in process of a primary and thrust them into what is essentially a general election without having been vetted in excuses that while you're all going to be on the ballot together so what i think what will happen otherwise is let's. Let's be honest here. The democrats do not have strong bench right now. That's just the honest fact name measure with the exception of stacey abrahams name a major democrat in the state you there really aren't any there you can say michael thurmond who who is is how old and been wearing and done what for how long win john barrow same situation <hes> becoming rapidly perennial candidate who were the prominent democrats in the state eight of georgia there really aren't any. You're having to go down to people like jerry boston the d._a..

It's unbelievable and these guys think it's about capper nick that they're covering that. Did you hear trump mentioned in that. Even even though trump's been the big problem with the n._f._l. Knew nothing at all smokescreen yeah good one though but you gotta be careful of this jay z man a devil worshipper i think about that he doesn't. I don't think he cares too much. It's about black people. We care about his his bottom line. Yeah no shit no shit anyway. Apply this as a congratulations and <hes>. You not only called it but you nailed it.

You want to be vice president. Welfare fight twenty twenty is essential for every single thing that we want to accomplish and twenty twenty. It's about making sure that we have a level playing field and that we're not fighting. Voter suppression one single handedly but what i do want to say is that my focus is on making sure that we use is the primary to build for the general. If however a nominee decides that they would like to include me on the ticket i would certainly be open to that but my focus and my mission is to make certain that no no matter who are nominees are that we have in place the kind of robust response but also anticipatory offense to make sure that the right to vote voter sacrosanct and every one of those battleground states yeah no that is obviously that's extremely valuable and i know that that's where you're putting a lot of your time and energy but back to the vice presidency for a second again have candidates asked you. I've not been asked to run for vice president because everyone who's running for president right. Now is focused on getting that nomination and i think i think we all know it's deeply presumptuous to assume that anything happening after after the primaries is known yet but i do know is that voter suppression is real that we saw just just this year in texas in tennessee arizona and in florida steps taken by republicans to further constrict the vote and if you go to fair fight twenty twenty or you can find out more about our initiative and i know we want to talk about what happens next but we have to focus on what's happening now and right now.

"<hes> it is interesting to me to watch Theresa Tomlinson essentially take now. Let let me set if you if you're not keeping up on this we have to announced <hes> Democratic candidates. It is very interesting. I see a piece by Greg Bluestone at the J._C.. And what is I get <hes>. He has someone <hes> Timur Hallman <hes> with him there at the J._C.. CREDIT WORDS DO and hits <hes>. It's interesting to me that the is noticing. There aren't any black Democratic candidates running where are they. We have <hes> Ted Terry. The mayor of Clarkston we have Theresa Tomlinson the former mayor of Columbus. We may have zero rigs Amigo who is he ran for Lieutenant Governor and successfully. We don't have any black candidates running in the Democratic primary sorry for the Senate. <hes> and some Democrats are worried that could not energize the base in meanwhile what we also have an an I genuinely I'm fascinated by this. I I really really invested by this. <hes> Theresa Tomlinson Johnson was not a progressive mayor in Columbus Moscow Yanni as she was certainly a Democrat and there were certain areas where she did push on social reform but she was fairly status quo Democrat mccracken and and when she first launched her race for the Senate she essentially wanted everyone to know she used to be a Republican. The Republican Party left her. She didn't leave the Republican Party. She now considered herself a Democrat but she was not one of those Spooky Democrats the crap who would go after business and yet now because of Ted Terry's entrance into the race the the the mayor of <hes> Clarkston who was on <hes> queer eye for the straight guy the netflix would not the old one dude his makeover stuff and he is super progressive. Suddenly she is embracing every idea possible that she can on the left. <hes> the latest is marijuana. There's there's also abortion. <hes> Theresa homeless in his Nell said that a child is not a child until the child <hes> exits the womb therefore the woman in Athens who was shot and killed with a four month old child child <hes> in her that she should not be charged with the murderer should not be charged with killing two people just one because it wasn't a human being the these are steps so far out of line with everyone and yet she feels the need to be as progressive as possible to combat Ted series interests in the race because she really wants this meanwhile. You've got the A._J._C. Not that there aren't any by candidates in this race. You're not going to have any statewide races except the Senate race and the Presidential Race Stacey Abrams is not going to run for president now at appear. She's going to save up for twenty twenty two meanwhile you've got the situation shaping up in Georgia where there are strong rumors coming into the Democratic Party that Jim Jordan the Senate's chief abortion advocate wants to run for Governor Against Stacey Abrahams in in Georgia to pull out all the stops the Democrats take back the legislature so she will have a claim to beat Stacey Abrahams. You're watching the crackup of the Democratic Party in Georgia and no one seems to be paying attention to it now. Why is this happening well? There are some reasons and do I explain them because I don't want to paint a path forward for the Democrats relatives but I I don't think they can save themselves so we might as well discuss why it's happening so here's the problem for the Democrats in Georgia. They misinterpreted twenty eighteen then they misinterpreted pretty badly but because they misinterpreted it. They are running a dangerous game now for their future now. What do I mean by? They misinterpreted well what happened in two thousand Eighteen Stacey Abrahams did not win nor did Stacy Abrahams come close to <hes> come close to getting into a runoff but the Democrats built a mythology that Stacey Aram's not only had it stolen from her that she should be governor and in so doing the Democrats have decided they must run hard left in Georgia to mobile is new voters and generate enthusiasm because that's what Stacey Abrahams. Did you see when Stacy Abrahams one in two thousand eighteen with Stacy Abrahams said was that she was gonna run as who she actually is she wasn't going to do this thing where you run into the middle or you run to the left and then you run back to the middle of the General Abrahams range of the left and she stayed on the left and the Democrats are convinced. She got close well. She did to some degree get close. She almost got Brian. Kemp into a runoff should've lost the runoff often. I think that's widely-acknowledged at this point. It's so they built this are enveloping mythology that she had the race stolen from her because things were unfair. That's not true but it's this hard left narration that the Democrats have bought out into here in Georgia and that's problematic because when you actually look at the voter turnout in two thousand eighteen and I'm not talking about my opinion here in a would it be clear I I will tell you what's my opinion but I'm telling you the facts right now and you can feel free to disagree with the facts but they are the facts in the facts are that Democrats had a great deal of antipathy for president trump and they turned out at presidential levels. The Republicans Georgia were not expecting Democrats to turn out at presidential levels and that inundated them in the six congressional district it hurt them in the seventh congressional district although they still want it in it hurt Brian Kemp in the the Atlanta suburbs because the Republicans were not prepared for the amount of Democrats who turned out here's the problem for the Democrats and this is where they misinterpret twenty eighteen the Republicans turned out at off your election levels Republicans. I did not turn out at presidential year levels so you had the Democrats turned down at the level they turn out at in every presidential race and you had Republicans turn out at a level less than that at the rate the enough enough your election. We'll guess what next year is going to be next year is going to be a presidential election. Election Year and Republicans will turn out a presidential levels and Democrats will turn out at presidential levels in Georgia and guess who has a numerical advantage Republicans the Democrats now have it in their head that the way they're going to keep suburban voters supporting them is is that those suburban voters must have gone hard left and therefore the Democrats must stay hard left to keep them voting Democrat but that's not actually true. It's not that the voters win hard left is that the voters who did turn out in the suburbs and voted Democrat they turn out as Democrats presidential level turnout and the independent voters who decided to vote Democrat with them turn out because they wanted to check on the president and not because they wanted far left democratic policies so now take those that was independence away who don't want hard left Democrats as a response to the president because I don't think the Democrats are going to get those people back considered the polling on brand. Give no the polling on Brian Kemp now has his popularity level in Georgia at close to sixty percent. You heard a lot of that in the media but the N._B._C. survey that came out has brank hips popularity level close to sixty percent now why because Brian gives proven himself to be his own man and because a lot of those independent voters who went to Stacey Abrahams are realizing the Democrats have lost their minds so the Democrats are making this big play in Georgia decided hey stacey came really close in two thousand eighteen by misinterpreting the data and so we're just going to do with Stacy Abrahams did which is we're going to run. unapologetically hard left while the the data suggests that Stacey Abrahams only came close not because she ran hard left but because she ran in opposition to donald trump and Brian Kemp was viewed as a proxy for trump because trump endorsed him. That's not going to be the case in two thousand twenty. You'll say but wait Mr Mr. Mr Except Donald Trump's gonna be on the ballot would produce GonNa be on the ballot will help them. No and here's why yes folks. I left you hanging intentionally. It's called a tease. I'm a professional. It's what I do so e before we went to break ozone you it you had independence who clearly did go to the Democrats in two thousand eighteen in Georgia and I'm telling you that the Democrats can't presume those people will vote against trump and twenty twenty even though the reason reason they went to the Democrats are two thousand eighteen was because trump so why well again what is the data show as I mentioned in the first hour of the show the the data shows that the number one issue for these voters is now immigration and the overwhelming well me majority those people lean towards the Republican position they actually leaned towards the president's position on this of securing the border building a wall <hes> not giving illegal aliens Amnesty <hes> and in giving the president of the resources he needs needs to stem the flow as opposed to releasing people into this country giving the healthcare that works against the Democrats twenty twenty the other thing that works against the Democrats in loosing Bassey's to pay attention to this in her district. <hes> is embiid's impeachment majority of voters in the sixth Congressional district of the Seventh Congressional District Oppose impeaching the president and yet Democrats are now trying to to rev up among the base the idea of beach meant and Democrats actually in fact. You've got the recent Tomlinson the the moderate turned progressive candidate for the Democrats here Georgia now waving the banner of impeachment and impeaching the president she continues to move herself to the left to try to take voters away from Ted Terry who is a progressive who wants to impeach the president that doesn't work for the candidates. The radicalism of the Democratic Party doesn't work for them. <hes> my buddy Tim Chapman who runs heritage action for America sent me a link to something he wrote <hes> the politico today that notes that voters a lot of voters who don't like the president still like traditional Republican policies and while they may not care for the president they're very hesitant to move left because laws of the Democrats increasing radicalism and the president seems to be playing them perfectly on this point..

We asked five thirty eighth nate silver to you by that so do I by the Democrats even more candidates well Tom Starwood during the most crowded field ever he knows that but his challenge is not just at the field is crowded as crowded with candidates at Democrats really like one one pull back in March found that sixty eight percent of Democrats said they were satisfied or enthusiastic with their field and this is only grown since then the top four candidates biden sanders worn in Arras all have they were buildings plus forty or higher among democratic socratic voters borders really liked those top four or five candidates next being a billionaire might have helped Donald Trump win the Republican nomination but Democrats you have Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders campaigning against the one percent. I'm not sure it helps so much. Democratic primary sired can emphasize impeachment and his anti-washington corruption message although only thirty seven percent of the overall supports impeaching president trump six one percent of Democrats do according to the latest A._B._C. News Washington Post poll but the Russia investigation ends aftermath isn't really a top issue for voters. There's according to Gallup it ranked as just the eighth most important issue for Democrats avoid the twenty eighteen midterm so one more thing. I don't want to reduce everything to race and gender but it's worth noting that only about twenty five percent of Democratic primary voters are white men and yet about sixty percent sent of declared candidate so far are white men so we're GonNa make a late splash running for president. I might be on someone like Georgia's Stacey Abrahams instead who in theory could have a better chance of competing for women and Non White voters out of the gate so I don't really by that Tom Sarah can build the coalition and he needs to win in two thousand twenty but he does have a year and a hundred million dollars to spend to prove me wrong. I am not running for president instead. I'm strengthening by commitment to need to impeach twenty nineteen until fill the house. Mr Trump resigns. That's how we will define success. That was billionaire activists. Tom Steiner back in January this week. He became the twenty fifth Democrat to announce a campaign for President Twenty Twenty joins US right now. So what what what changed you said that unless impeachment proceedings starts or Donald Trump resigned you work in Iran but you're running and neither one of those things happened look in in January. I said I wasn't going to run at that time because I felt I hadn't obligation to push impeachment. I'm continuing to fund need to impeach. I believe that in January we had six million people who'd signed now we have eight million and I believe we've won the argument but in the suing you say you've won the argument.

"That isn't the case of tool. There is an unrealistic bond among wealthy people for these tax free scrutiny for Trump products. And if you can't get into Caribbean, they look elsewhere. So they got them in south the country, instead, of course, for the longest time to stay. The Delaware is also being a tax haven and away that you can set up these corporate shingles, and, and of course, former Senator from Delaware is now running for president fact he's the, the democratic frontrunner. It's what it's what actually one of the most depressing facts about the last presidential races that both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton ran their personal businesses. Our show company in the state of Delaware. Speaking of someone who's quite keen for these issues to be resolved. That was pretty clear example, that was being resolved. Yes. Absolutely. The prospects of, of a Senator from from Delaware becoming becoming presidents, you know, even in this even in the circumstances when that meant Donald Trump wouldn't be presents anymore or suggests to me that, that, that would be minimum prospects of the problem being solved. But when you create these LLC's shingles for the one of a better description in Delaware, and elsewhere, isn't there, a way to get around it to possible to find out who the actual beneficiary is instead of some named company like, you know, the mom and apple pie corporation, technically, there is there is, in fact, a Bill currently being being discussed in in Washington. The would try and solve this problem certainly for corporations. I've in fact, if any of your listeners wanna check out the facts, the F ACT coalition website that is one of the group's reading pushing that night, needle support, they can get. But it is a very significant uphill struggle. I've been I've spoken to guy. You makes his living fooling corporations Nevada. Which is another one of these sort of onshore offshore tax havens on. You know, he said to me, let's check what people come from. But that's not a lot of money in checkings really bother. That's the situation you're up against you. It's so cheap. It so easy to create a company in these places that the why would anyone bother creating one anywhere else you, you credit company California, but you can create one next door in Nevada is going to be much less paperwork and much cheaper. So one of two instead, it is a real issue. And you need federal wide solution. But, you know this can be essentially obstructed, by the states it almost any turn. It's one of the strange crisies of you'll magnificent constitution, and that's just corporations. Once you get positive operations, you have to start dealing with trusts, and trust are even more Nazi even more complicated. How do you establish the beneficiary of a trust is, there are many different kinds, you know, the, the rich and the unscreened has been playing this game following the with even been aware that it's a game? And so they've created structures and created pathways that we are just discovering. Now, you know, there is an awful lot of money. That's gone down the rabbit hole and into money land. If you read a book like you, Jay man. Book that dot money or not claims democracy and change. You realize that the that the wealthiest members of society in the US have been this, since the nineteen sixties themselves. So they are a long way out of us. We're just beginning to try and even to stand that been up to catch up with and trying to put a stop to it while other book, I think very much for joining us here today. It's been my pleasure. Thank you for having me. And again, be speaking with out of a book as a journalist and regular contributor to the guardian the New York Times, and G Q, he's authored to nonfiction books about Russian history and politics, the last man in Russia and let fame great. And he's latest book just out is money land. Why thieves and crooks now rule the world and how to take it back, take a brief station break back exploring the contrast between an excess of democratic candidates running for president and the positive qualified democratic candidates prepared to run to take back the US Senate in twenty twenty. Welcome back. I mean Mazdas and this background briefing velo twenty seven background briefing dot org and joining us now Jim Manley, a DC based independent public affairs consultant democratic strategist and twenty one year veteran of the US Senate, where he served as senior adviser to Senate majority leader Harry Reid for his six years of those of his term in the Senate, and before that twelve years as an aide to the late Senator, Ted Kennedy welcome the background briefing. Jim manley. Once again, thank you. Well, thanks for joining us. What do you make of this peculiar disconnect between an excess of candidates? Democratic candidates running full president and the paucity of qualified democratic candidates prepared to run to take back the United States Senate in twenty twenty. You know, I gotta tell you in the more, I think about it, the more frustrated, I get, I think it comes down to either one of two options. Number one, all of these folks think that Donald Trump's going to win, which I think, is the bad miscalculation or number two. I think they're looking at the Senate and saying themselves, you know, I don't need to put up with that. And, you know, has a twenty one year veteran, the Senate. You know, I can appreciate the that to a degree as you and I have talked about before the fact of the matter is the Senate is broken. But I think for them to throw away all their chances to run for some misguided effort to be the next president. I states is absolutely ridiculous. I mean, we're, you know, the fact of the matter is in again, as you and I've talked about before the Senate is crucial to try to protect this country. And, you know, if we don't flip the Senate, you know, bad things or even more. Bad things are going to be right around the corner. Well, not the least of which is more very, very far right wing judges from the federalist society. Exactly. And so let's peel that back later. I mean, we just saw two days ago that the spring, court of the United States is prepared reverse past president so called starry decisive and overturn long held rule rulings. Now, if you're abortion rights supporter, for instance, and if you're looking at the, the supreme court to try and protect your right, you know, you've got another thing comment. And so the only thing standing between. Successful effort to overturn abortion rights for instance, and a whole host of other things that later labor laws, etc. Is going to be the United States Senate, and I really really hope you know, some of these folks reconsider and decide to run for the Senate instead because, you know, it's a real crucial time in our country and in our history, and, you know, we don't quite frankly, we don't have time for these foolish little errands, you know, the fact, the matter is at twenty two people are running, that's flat out ridiculous. So again, I just hope that some of these folks reconsider because we need we desperately need to reclaim the sun. Well, an example of what I've see could have disconnect here. Jim Manley is the latest to enter the race. Steve Bullock, the governor of Montana, which is a red state, but yet he's a democrat and he's very popular in the state and I mean I don't see him having a snowball's chance with all these other candidates and got Joe Biden way ahead of everybody else. Any rate at this point? To be clear, you know, we'll have to wait and see how this Biden phenomena plays out. I just want to be crystal clear, but I certainly agree that, you know, the initial polling shows in point away, and probably more importantly, for what we're talking about the rest of the back falling farther and farther behind. Yeah. I usually get up to three people that are running for the Senate. I mean running for president that should be running for the house, Steve, Pollick. One Stacey Abrams is another and beetle roared would be the third all of which could be extremely viable candidates in Senate races. Instead, you know, again, I think they're just wasting their time and energy for whatever reason throw their hat in the ring to try and be the next president. United States Trump is Emily beatable, but again I just. You know, for some reason, you know, Republicans have taken the Senate more seriously than the Democratic's Democrats do what it comes to the Senate. You know if it's not obvious by now that the senate's the bullwork, you know, I just, you know, I don't know what to tell folks. I, I mean, we simply have got to reclaim the Senate. And as we pointed out, and as Republican Scholley no since they seem to be concerned about the supreme court. The if you control the Senate, you control the cool and traps. Legacy. That's not a complete disaster, not that this list will be a disaster. But the only legacy apart from the wrecking crew will be in history was how much many judges got on the coats absolutely weekend week now since Senator McConnell executed is the latest so-called nuclear option to undermine the rules of the Senate. You know, the fact, the matter is, is that the Senate is processing and confirming one highly qualified nominee after another not only for the district court, but for the court of appeals, as well before very is, you know, Republicans are reshaping the court and unfortunately a lot of it's getting lost in the daily twenty four. The crazy twenty four hour news cycle, that's you know, the the Trump machine. So I just. Again, I just can't hurt your listeners enough to just really focus on the Senate. We just simply got to do a better job of trying to focus on trying to flip the Senate. So given we just mentioned Montana way, you could pick up a democratic seat in a red state. If Steve Bullock, his the most popular democrat arguably in the state when not running for president joint, I think he's the twenty second or twenty third to join that field. And then you've got other races in Georgia Maine, Colorado, North Carolina. You mentioned Stacey Abrams. Also, you'll so mentioned Benoa raw, John, John Cornyn is vulnerable better real came pretty close to baiting. Ted Cruz Diddy not. So there, there's another example, stay Stacey Abraham's ruled itself out. I don't believe she has. No, which leasing leading to some consternation. I don't claim you know what she's up to. But, you know, again it pains me to say this, but I think because I love the Senate as institution and I got so lucky my crew to spend so much time working for some great, folks. But, you know, you know, I think they're taking a look at the Senate to say that broke it, you know, they're not passing legislation. All they're doing. It's confirming judges the amendment process is broken. You can't get a fair shake in hearings. So, you know, I you know gotta give, but for some of these folks to walk away from these fights, because, you know, they think that, you know, they could be the next president. I states is, you know, as I've mentioned earlier, just simply misguided, you know, I, I get the idea, you know, that folks have an ego that they think they can be the next president. I'd states I used to walk onto the Senate floor every day when I work for Santa read I'd look. Around the say to myself that, you know, kind of chuckle land, or laugh, and think, you know, each and every one of these centers things that here, she could be the next president nited states and for some of those votes, it was ridiculous. Neighbors say so, you know, I get the diet driving desire, but I really hope some of these folks reconsider, as I mentioned earlier and think about running for the Senate. So. I mentioned the states of our Georgia. Bain Colorado, North Carolina, being Senate seats at the Democrats could pick up this up for grabs..

No, they're not like, the mom and the dad of the country, George Washington, you might call the father a country, and then you're going to tack him at a full-throated sort of way, these these people let me tell you about these people in Chicago, Illinois. There is a neighborhood called oak park oak park officials listen to this. It's just a nice oak park officials remove nineteen thirties mural from school saying it does not reflect our community's diversity. Well, the community was different in nineteen thirty. I don't know because we're of this oak park district ninety seven officials recently removed mural from one of its middle schools after parents and students approached administrators saying the mural did not reflect or represent the current diversity of the school and community. A letter sent to families from Julian middle school principal Todd. Fitzgerald said the mural, which shows only white children and parents was removed from the schools Commons on April thirteenth. And this is great stuff. I've recently had a number of conversations with students and parents about the mural, the principal said the students, and parents who approached the administration felt the mural did not reflect or represent the diversity of our student body school or community as a district, we're working diligently to achieve equity and promote a greater sense of inclusion and belonging in all of our schools with these goals and these concerns of our families in mind, we decided to pursue the removal of the mural to pursue the removal of their little too much verbosity, their principal, FitzGerald and. According to the school's principal, the title the mural of the title, the mural was titled child and sports hyphen winter was painted a nineteen thirty seven through FDR's works progress administration and has been displayed the school since its construction in two thousand two previously. The real was displayed at the former local school in oak park. Now, this it's they remove the mural because the students are white because the painting is of white people. And because well, it's not all white people at the school now. So we gotta get these white people out of here. Now, imagine a white school removing a nineteen thirties WPA project mural that showed diverse people of black and Brown people and Asian people God forbid, and and maybe a Pete Budi judge or something and they removed it because well this neighborhood used to be a diverse neighbor. But now, it's mostly white neighborhood. So we're. Going to remove all these people of color from this mural. That's what's going on David so-called, professor emeritus of American art modern art and museology. That's the study of museums at the university of Illinois, Chicago worried about the precedent set by removing the artwork. Isn't that? President there racists, we know that they're they're bigots. They're anti white. All right. I mean is there any anything new here? He said David so-called, the professor emeritus. It was simply effect of what the community looked like in nineteen thirty seven. It doesn't show anyone in a bad light. I think it's tragic. It removes our history taking it out of the education system is censorship and eradication. Yeah. That's exactly what it is. And that's why the left the left. Does this everywhere? All the time. It's it's what they do. It's who they are. They're amazing Stacey Abrahams laments immature Mead. Area and incompetence during her failed. Gubernatorial, run, Georgia Democrat, Stacey Abrams cited immature media and their incompetence competence of the media and their immature. Unlike her she's very mature. She still hasn't admitted that she lost the governor's race in Georgia. But everybody else's immature. It's the media's immature. That's why she lost. Because of the media. They were entirely in your camp. They were like sucking your toes. They were they were. Are you kidding me? They were your fluffer. The whole mission was to get you elected as reasons for her loss when discussing what happened during her bid for the governor's mansion. I would attributed less to racism less, but not entirely without less to racism and more to a very narrow an immature ability to navigate the story of my campaign Abram said during an interview with the root and F rose Centric, news outlet, which asked how the media handled her gubernatorial campaign when Abrahams while Abrahams accused her opponents of using racist overtones during the election naturally. She did not ascribe the same label to the press. No, well, you know, they're they're her friends her buddies her allies, but instead claimed they were inept at covering her correctly. See if the media had only covered her correctly than she would.

And the and the announcement, and the, you know, the all the Vanity Fair cover and all the hoopla and what she sees. She sees it through the Marxist prism of race class and gender real stars of two thousand eighteen were folks like Andrew gallon. I like Stacey Abrams. But I haven't seen Stacey Abrahams on the cover of Vanity Fair. Real stars get the kind of treatment. The better work has gotten so far. And I think that has a lot to do with race in gender. And it's something that I think that better work is going to have to grapple with. He's going to have to grapple with the fact that he's white because said because the racists in the missing out to get him. Stacey Abrams was big. So she lost the governor's race in Georgia by a slender margin. And that means she should be our if she announces maybe she'll be on the cover of Vanity Fair, but she hasn't announced, and then we had Kirstin powers updates on this because she's white. She's not black neom leak Anderson is bike. So she focuses on race and gender as well and class should come into it.

"Good morning at six six here in our studios in music row in Nashville, Tennessee, this is a Tennessee star report. But I'm Michael Patrick layhee with Steve Gail. It's a little rainy out there be careful as you drive in. And it's also going to be warm. It could be a record warm day today. And so that's all good news. We're we're gonna talk a little bit about the state of the union address here shortly. President Trump had a terrific speech. I thought last night, although if you watch the endless on Fox News, they think, oh, maybe it. Maybe it wasn't so great. And but most Americans, according to the poll think that it was really a terrific speech last night and Steve Gill. You saw the speech you're up late as I was and. We'll get you to weigh in here in just a little minute. I also want to note here that Stephen I have something terrific to celebrate along with our benching editor, Christina, Terry. We launched the Tennessee star two years ago on February six two thousand seventeen it's been an eventful two years. You can listen to the Tennessee star. You can watch read the stories at Tennessee star dot com. That's Tennessee star dot com. If you go to our Facebook page, by way, you you can see that we have a birthday cake for the ten tessy sur and shortly. Stephen I are going to cut that cake and share it. Take a good good bite of the cake and share it with Austin, our producer here. So it's been a really good day. Really good two years for us. I think it was a really good speech for. For President Trump last night. I think perhaps Steve the best speech of his presidency. What do you think? Well, first of all we were called baby Breitbart, Tennessee star was called the baby Breitbart by politico, which we took as you know, is kind of a a a slam that we would accept a happily. So it's two years of the Tennessee star. It's still a Baby Bells. It's about to get out of diapers. It's starting to talk and maybe around a little bit can walk very well. Now, it's it's not quite Tyler ruin the terrible twos. Now. So if you think till now. Yeah, just the worst is coming. Yeah. I I didn't know there was a speech last night. I was watching Tennessee versus Missouri at home at kind of flipping back and forth. And and I noticed that the the democrat women decided to wear the Democratic Party throwback jerseys, the white outfits, they left the hoods apparently they checked at the door because the new headgear it allows women to wear the hit job in. On the floor does not apply to their hoods. So they were everything but the hoods last night, but they they were they were hooded. In spirit, even if not in attire. I I agree with you. I think it was one of the best state of the union speech. Is that that I can I can recall the president was restrained. He was funny where it was appropriate. He was serious where it was appropriate. I thought it was the best use and we've seen this, you know, fill the stands with with people you're going to refer to during the speech. I thought it weaved in better and the people he had there as his guests to underline the policy issues. What was his effective as as I've seen anybody? You get everybody just have them stand up and everybody applauds he actually weaved their stories into the policy issues that he was he was putting forward, and and I think the the other side of that is the particularly these democrat radical feminist women in the in the congress wouldn't even stand and applaud like well, eliminating childhood cancer. I mean, they hate America and Donald Trump so much. They can't even celebrate a little. Girl, overcoming cancer now and keep in mind is that the same people that want to kill babies after they're born and had they known that this child was suffering from this kind of disease. They would have been wanting to kill her. This is the kind of kid they want to use infanticide against and and I think again, they showed their true colors during the course of the evening, and and L O Cossio Cortez. Look like, some petulant teenager who who was there with the, mommy. Daddy, made me come here. But I will not enjoy it. And she had the look on her face had the arms crossed it was asserted Kamala Harris. Yeah, she she had the sour expression throughout she was. She was frowning when the president said we're going to stop those drug cartels for bringing drugs into America. Hey, that's my peeps. That's that's how I'm funding my campaign. And then of course, you had Nancy Pelosi up there against sucking on the same lemon. Apparently, Kamala Harris was was sucking on. We got so much to do the the the native Ammon.

I do have a photo of the throwback jerseys. The Democrats wore last night, you can see it there. It's they can't make this stuff up. When we come back. We'll take some of your calls and let you analyze what do you think the president did last night that help what do you think he did last night that might have hurt the Democrats help or hurt themselves in the way they responded, and what did you think about the response? I'll have to admit I only watched a few moments of that. I did watch the Tennessee Missouri basketball game rather than watch.

"With our FOX News Radio political analyst, Josh Kraushaar, also our Republican strategist Brad Blake men are democratic strategist Jessica Tarlov in both of them have been chomping at the bit to talk about why this state of the union started off differently than other states of the union because speaker Pelosi did not introduce President Trump. Brad, do you notice that I did? But you know, it was no fault of the speaker. A slight of the speaker. The fact is that the president chomped at the bit. What he what he missed was the opportunity for another two minute ovation. Because typically when the speaker invites the president to address the joint session, he gets thunderous applause. So he kinda got two minutes cheated by his own doing accolades forced mind you but accolades on. It was interesting Jessica because again, it looked like even speaker Pelosi looked slightly confused about what what you know. I think everybody was like, wait what's supposed to happen here? She was doing some excellent mugging the entire evening by it. And I would love to know what the papers and the ipad. What made is that? What you're saying? Oh, well, there's already the one of her clapping at him. When he says, you know, people shouldn't be so mean, and you know, vitriolic, and then she actually sticks her hands towards his head as she applauded. But it was totally. It'd been on social media since I've been on air. I got. Having a great time. So I think that was a mistake that he made because he would have gotten a two minutes of accolades, but you know, today, there's a clip circulating of President Bush when he injured and he's coming up for his state of the union, and it's Nancy Pelosi's I say of the union as speaker of the house, and he takes a moment, not only to congratulate her, but to talk about the fact that she's the first woman to be sitting there in that position. So President Trump could have most certainly lavished some praise on her and thanked her and also to welcome the new members of the house and the Senate because he did have some victories. But he's very proud of. And in the Senate and the house not as much, but they were there as well. So I thought it was a a mess opportunity. And she definitely looked thrown. And I don't know if Republicans are saying that she slighted him. But he definitely you know, was nervous and ready to get at it. Which imagine is what happened there and he wanted to start on the property ready to go a lengthy speech. So let's get it started. That extra two minutes would've taken four hours would have gotten close to Clinton territory. The longest ever. Talk about foreign policy. It's not often that news has broken in a state of the union, but President Trump did break some news when it comes to the second summit now with North Korean leader, Kim Jong my relationship with Kim Jong on is a good one chairman Kim, and I will meet again on February twenty seventh and twenty eighth in Vietnam. All right. So I'll start with you, Brad. Good idea bad idea to have a summit so soon after that first one well only he knows typically I've I've done many summits in thirty years. And typically when you schedule a summit, there's always a deliverable, otherwise, there's no sense in meeting. So there must be something there there in order for the president to take time in order to go over there for two days. I believe that something will be announced. Hopefully, it will be something big and presidential and something that Americans can be very proud of because North Korea has stymied us for decades. And this president has made inroads that at least give us promise. Today. Summit will be twice as long as the last summit. That's a good point. Brad. I I was I didn't notice, and maybe you guys heard it differently than I did. But but I'll I'll throw it open to you. Jessica I and Brad if you want to weigh in as well that the applause line there was pretty tepid. Oh, definitely. And I think it was also tepid because he said that if he hadn't been been elected we'd be at war with North Korea, which seems founded an absolutely nothing. So I think people were thrown off by that and about the summit itself that's something that people on both sides of the aisle are very cautious of and some of the president's biggest supporters like Lindsey Graham. For instance, doesn't believe anything that comes out of the hermit kingdom, and he's all about proof of effort towards denuclearizing. And we see reports consistently saying that they're actually not doing it in the president says, my mom has been talking to them, and they are going to do it. So I think people weren't prepared for it and thrown off and didn't know if they should be the ones caught on camera applauding something that may turn out to be diplomatically unwise for us at this point in in other foreign policy proposal from the president is one that is also sharply divided folks within his. Own Republican party. And that is a withdrawal of many of the US forces in Afghanistan serious as well. But the president spoke a lot about why he wants to start sending home US troops from Afghanistan. And here's how the president made that pitch in Afghanistan. My administration is holding constructive talks with a number of Afghan groups, including the Taliban. As we make progress in these negotiations, we will be able to reduce troops presence and focus on counter terrorism. And we will indeed focus on counter terrorism. We do not know whether will achieve an agreement, but we do know that after two decades of war the hour has come to at least try for peace. Brad Blackman you were in the White House when the war in Afghanistan was launched right? Yeah. I mean, it's been what seventeen years and the president was right? We America we go in to win. And we have we don't have open ended commitments anymore for military. We admissions we have goals objectives. And the president believes now that it may be time for political settlement. Objectives have been have been met. Not only by President George W Bush and and subsequently by president. Obama Afghanistan has been a quagmire for many administrations. And the question is. Where what do we do in consultation with our allies? But the Afghans have to stand up were they haven't the presence called him out on it. And the question is let's give it a try the presence pragmatic. He sees the world as it is not the world he wishes it to be and let me just say something on North Korea. I agree with Jessica, I think that it may have been a bridge too far to say we would have been at war. But I, but what I think a better line would have been as Kim would have had a nuclear weapon because I think that's more realistic and Democrats would have applauded for that either. But I think it was more realistic to what is happening today. Perhaps more Republicans would have applauded let's switch to the democratic response. Because so much of what the president talked about. It is we talked about in our last segment was his pitch for a border wall his immigration policy. That is something that Georgia lawmaker former Georgia lawmakers say Abrahams talked about as well in her response. It's the President Trump compassionate treatment at the border is not the same as open borders. President Reagan understood this President Obama understood this Americans understand this and Democrats stand ready to effectively secure our ports and borders. But we must all embrace that from agriculture to healthcare to entrepreneurship America is made stronger by the presence of immigrants not walls. Josh that I think was an important line from Democrats perspective because the president on Twitter, and in speeches has labeled the Democrats as a party for open borders that is the same language that Stacey Abrams used their Stacey Abrahams. Name checked Ronald Reagan on immigration. Done that a lot to your during her her inaugural speed yet. She did. So. Yeah, I mean, Democrats are trying to show that they're pragmatic on immigration that was that was the message that Stacey Abrams showed it looks like. Trump didn't talk about a deal. He didn't he he made. It was interesting. He made a line that he ad-lib that think Jessica talked about earlier a saying that he wants more legal immigration, which is counter to what some of his proposals, which is an interesting ad-lib because that's sort of the hangup in why why we didn't get some compromise earlier last year when Democrats could have gotten Dr legalization the president could have gotten some money for his wall. And and the hang of was the people in the White House wanted to throw in, you know, restrictions on legal immigration, which which Stephen Miller and other restrictions ests in the White House supported. So it was interesting that Trump sort of ad-lib that line about legal immigration and one wonders whether he's thinking about some broad deal that can be struck to get out of this morass as so far that is not what we've seen. I think it remains to be seen as well. What this conference committee will come up with that's finish with one more a bit from Stacey Abrams. Talking about voter. Suppression voter suppression is real from making it harder to. Register and stay on the rolls to moving and closing polling places to rejecting lawful ballots. We can no longer ignore these threats to democracy. Well, I knowledge the results of the twenty eighteen election here in Georgia. I did not and we cannot accept efforts to undermine our right to vote. Josh last thought from you is that going to be a message we hear from Democrats throughout the next two years. I don't think re-litigating a an election. You lost is a winning political strategy. But I do think that the notion of voting rights and making sure everyone has access to the the ballot is something that that does unite Democrats. So I think she has to be very careful not to make it about herself that that that that was not as close as close as of a raise at some other close contests in the country, and the more we hear about the Georgia two thousand eighteen race unless we hear about her political future. I certainly the little broader issue though of voting rights and expanding opportunity is something that we've heard from Democrats on the national stage. It remains to be seen. How much that becomes a focal point of the twenty twenty campaign that will finish our thoughts. As President Trump is delivered his second state of the union address,.

"Our FOX News Radio political analyst, Josh Kraushaar, also our Republican strategist Brad Blake meant, our democratic strategist, Jessica Tarlov in both of them have been chomping at the bit to talk about why this state of the union started off differently than other states of the union because speaker Pelosi did not introduce President Trump. Brad you notice that I did. But you know, it was no fault of the speaker sleight of the speaker the fact is that the president chomped at the bit. What he what he missed was the opportunity for another two minute ovation. Because typically when the speaker invites the president to address the joint session, he gets thunderous applause. So he kinda got two minutes cheated by his own doing accolades forced mind you but accolades nonetheless. It was interesting Jessica because again, it looked like even speaker Pelosi looked slightly confused about what what you know. I think everybody was like, wait what's supposed to happen here? She was doing some excellent mugging the entire evening. By it. And I would love to know what we're on the papers in the ipad. Memes. Made is that what you're saying? Well, there's already the one of her clapping at him. When he says, you know, people shouldn't be so mean and vitriolic, and then she actually sticks her hands towards his head as she applauded. But it was totally been on social media since I've been on air. I gotta call. A great time. So I think that was a mistake that he made because he would have gotten the two minutes of accolades, but you know, today, there's a clip circulating of President Bush when he injured when he's coming out for his state of the union, and it's Nancy Pelosi's I day of the union as speaker of the house, and he takes a moment. Not only to congratulate her to talk about fact that she's the first woman to be sitting there in that position. So President Trump could have most certainly lavished some praise on her and thanked her and also to welcome the new members of the house and the Senate because he did have some victories that he's very proud of. And in the Senate and the house not as much, but they were there as well. So I thought it was a mess opportunity. And she definitely looked thrown. And I don't know if Republicans are saying that she slated him. But he definitely you know, was nervous and ready to get at it, which I imagine is what happened there and he wanted to start on the property ready to go a lengthy speech. So let's get. It started. Two minutes would have taken four hours. I would have gotten close to Clinton territory, the longest ever, let's talk about foreign policy. It's not often that news is broken in a state of the union. But President Trump did break some news when it comes to the second summit now with North Korean leader, Kim Jong my relationship with Kim Jong UN is a good one chairman Kim, and I will meet again on February twenty seventh. And twenty eighth in Vietnam. All right. So I'll start with you, Brad. Good idea bad idea to have a summit so soon after that first one well only he knows typically I've I've done many summits in thirty years. And typically when you schedule a summit, there's always a deliverable, otherwise, there's no sense in meeting. So there must be something there there in order for the president to take time in order to go over there for two days. I believe that something will be announced. Hopefully, it will be something big and presidential and something that Americans can be very proud of because North Korea has stymied us for decades. And this president has made inroads that at least give us promise. Today. Summit will be twice as long as the last summit. That's a good point. Brad. I I was I did notice, and maybe you guys heard it differently than I did. But but I'll I'll throw it open. The Utica, I and Brad if you want to weigh in as well, but the applause line there was pretty tepid. Oh, definitely.

"WSB talk some interesting bipartisan moments in the state of the union tonight from the president and also Stacey Abrams. Let me just give you my very superficial nutshell here, I think this is in terms of the president's big speeches to congress into the nation. This is probably one of the best. He has given. It was a it was a good good speech at ended on a high note with the World War Two veteran and the holocaust survivor who also and the survivors of the Pennsylvania shooting at the synagogue that was good the president's elevated tone towards the end about America's best days ahead of us are abyss dreams ahead of us. Our greatest accomplishments still to come. That was good. There were some partisan moments of the speech, even some that fell flat. Among Republicans along the investigation. The can't have war and peace or you can't have peace basically in progress with the partisan investigations and war the president made to mystery moments. A very weird transitions. I do have to say we'll get into that tonight. What I also think is interesting is is Stacey Abrams speech. The Democrats gave President Trump a standing ovation during his speech for the economic news. As the president pointed out, we now have the highest employment for women the highest employment for African Americans the highest. Employment for Hispanic Americans. The lowest unemployment rate we've had in American history. We now have more people back in the workforce than we had in two thousand eight with the collapse of the recession finally seeming to be over jobs coming back economic, boom. The tax cuts are helping and the Democrats applauded for all that. In fact, the Democrats didn't want to applaud for much of the president's speech this evening. But they they applauded for that. They not only applauded for that. They gave the president a standing ovation on the economic news. So it was very funny then to see Stacey Abrams come on and Stacey Abrams talked down all of economic numbers that her democratic peers gave a standing ovation to Stacey Abrams, then gave a speech where she said that it was all bad. It was all actually bad more more people having to work more in their making less and take home pay is down on all of these things. And by the way, the data actually shows that not all of that some of it is true people are having to work harder to bring home the same amount of pay that that is actually true. But it was true during Barack Obama's administration as well. And the numbers have actually improved since Barack Obama left office. She left off that part for delivery wise, Stacey Abrams, I think actually did they find is one of the better performances for delivery now package. I'm not endorsing what she said don't don't don't call in your angry. I disagree with everything. She said, I think she got a lot of stuff factually wrong. When she was accusing, the president of not telling the truth, and she was lying about the economy, but for delivery, I think Stacey Abrams a far better speech than for example. Marco Rubio gave several years ago better speech than the Kennedy guy gave last year now. Nikki Haley gave a good one Stacey Abrams. Give it a good one. Bob McDonnell has the former governor of Virginia he gave a good response beyond those. There really aren't a ton of good responses to the state of the union one thing Stacey Abrams says going against her as well is that the speech was so late President Trump's state of the union speech, the longest state of the union given in the last twenty years Bill Clinton, actually St. gave a longer state of the union address. But this is the since that speech. I think that was nineteen ninety five I think that's right. This is the longest speech since then. And what of it? I've got to tell you guys one of the things that I found very annoying early on in the speech is the applause mean the president after every word it seemed like the Republicans wanted to give him a standing ovation and the Democrats wouldn't. But then that gets me back to the Stacey Abrams situation is one of the rare moments of bipartisan unity was cheering on the economy and Stacey Abrams talk down that economy. Her performance was good. I give her performance in in delivery. And a it was good for state of the union response. It was admittedly good. The backdrop was creepy as hell. The the out of focus. I'm assuming now Abrams. She was in Georgia. She was at a union hall. I'm assuming she either got props or extras from the Walking Dead filled in Sonora, Georgia to be the backdrop she had these out of focus zombie creatures behind her who just kind of they moved slightly and otherwise did nothing. He was very the optics. That were very very weird. You had all of the democratic women in congress wearing white as as as a subtle protest. The suffragette color is back in the nineteen thousand nine hundred nineteen is there they were trying to pass the women's vote since ninety early nineteen hundred let me just say that women were white is a form of protests. They wanted to be seeing they wanted to be visible. That's what they wanted tonight on the floor of the house, and and Stacey very muted. I think it was maroon I guess, I don't I'm a guy. I don't know. But. But the color outfit. She was wearing the lighting a it was in stark contrast to her democratic colleagues, and then to have the out of focus Walking Dead zombie zombie crowd behind her that occasionally move, but otherwise did not react. We that was weird. If if Saturday Night Live were not a partisan hack job these days, they would be ripping that. They would be making fun of that. They would be parodying the backdrop of the Stacey Abrams speech. They would love the substance of her speech. I don't like the substance over speech. The delivery was good. The substance was bad. But that whole out of focus backdrop was really really really weird and all pudding, but again, solid delivery for Stacey Abrams. What is really striking here though? This. They needed to go with a black or Hispanic person. Because their last two responses have been white men, and the Democrats are very sensitive to that these days. So having a black female actually was a good way to do their response. But it was very interesting that Stacey Abrahams spent most of her time talking about her past accomplishments. She's nobody now she's a former leader of the minority party in the Georgia house of representatives. She's a losing candidate. Now, of course, the Democrats want Stacey Abrams to run against David Purdue in twenty twenty and the Purdue campaign in Georgia needs to really get engaged in this. But here's the other thing that's striking about the the Abrahams situation is that Abrahams doesn't have a campaign set up right now. You would think Stacey Abrams could really cash in. If she had set up her campaign apparatus and announced she was going to run before delivering the state of the union in response that would have been big. And I wonder if the Democrats persuaded her not to if they didn't want her to if they if other Democrats have viewed it as competition, there is some bad blood still among the Democrats over Roberto Rourke challenging Ted Cruz in two thousand eighteen he sucked up a lot of money in Texas. A lot of money that could have gone to other candidates around the country and lost in. It's become a big campaign issue. In fact, it's coming out on the campaign trail now as other Democrats are bad badmouthing for failing to share that money with them in two thousand eighteen potentially costing them seats they otherwise could have one and they're using this as an anchor on him. Trying to run for president in two thousand twenty never mind that Oprah Winfrey had a big shindig with our work in New York today in Times Square, but nonetheless, so there may be an issue here of the Democrats persuading Abrahams. There could also be an issue of her not being sure she wants to do that. For those of you listening around the country tonight Abrams is undecided as to whether or not she's a run for the Senate in twenty twenty or wait to run against Brian Kemp, the governor of Georgia again in twenty twenty two he's going to have four years to establish himself as his own, man. We'll see if Abrams challenges him in twenty twenty two or does she run in two thousand twenty and twenty twenty two other Democrats are waiting to see, but she really could have made a lot of money tonight as a fundraising effort, if she were to have incorporated that woven that she did not do that which I think is a missed opportunity for just just as someone who ran campaigns and wasn't politics. I think it certainly is something that wasn't thought through the backdrop. I don't know. I mean, they tried to. It was like male, female male, female, male, female, female, female, female. I'm sure there were transgender gay heterosexual black white Asian, Hispanic. It was as diverse as you could possibly get. And then so out of focus. No one could see it. Now as to the substance of the president's speech tonight. There were some interesting moments. Of course, the crowd did get into the USA..

Officials say Trump will call for an end to the politics of resistance divisiveness. They say he plans to present an optimistic tone after weeks of bitter partisan fighting over the president's call for a border wall immigration will be a focus of the speech, but Trump will try to outline a bipartisan path forward, according to the White House.

So bad. We're back with Michael Hart. Now, Michael gonna have you pipe up on this. But that's bender Guam and Laura Laura bloomer Laura's, an independent conservative journalists that goes around and does things like these. They were Gavin Newsom the new governor of California, and they were asking to be let through his wall and indivisible with them a little bit. And they've done this Pelosi's place to and I thought it was a little bit of fun video to share probably get a bunch of trouble with. The PC crowd, right? Will you can always get in trouble because you can't do anything, right? Oh, Gavin Newsom for his part. There's there's video of them climbing over the walls before they and they said, you know, if you stay we're going to have to rescue. And then they've actually did Gavin Newsom said walls are immoral and of course, the advocates for the open border. So lots of fun there on Twitter, if you follow Laura Luma there so just had to share that. President Trump today. Again, if you're watching on her on Friday said that he said, he's actual words were to watch listen closely to the state of the union, I think you'll find it very exciting. And so he indicates he may announce he sort indicated today that there's a very good chance he could declare national emergency. And just start building volume self. Well, at this stage of the game, Amy something's gotta give because the American public is not going to sit still very long for another shutdown. Now, the idea that you know, he was able to capitulate a little bit. And kind of cave. Four Nancy Pelosi and the gang get some folks pay. I understand that strategy. It has the potential to backfire on him. If he doesn't in fact, make this move to get the wall, and you know, earlier today, he also brought Hungary and Israel into the equation and a couple of other countries where the leadership in those nations have made it pretty clear that has been fact walls, do indeed work. And so now, it's going to be very interesting. What the optic is going to be spun in terms of what Pelosi is going to say because I guarantee you the state of the union is going to is not going to be so much the state of the union as much as just a state of the wall because it's going to be the it's going to be an entire campaign an hour hour and a half long. However, long goes with it for the purposes of making his his case. And that's exactly what it's going to be what I'm really looking forward to is the democratic response, especially if they bring Cortez into it. Stacey. Abrahams who lost for I believe it was governor of your jet. They said we'll we'll be giving the response. So we'll see if anyone joins her. And I'm sure all the talking heads will be there as you say at the Trump also indicated he will be talking about the sanctity of life, and boy we can joke around and show these funding, Laura bloomer videos, but right now we're talking about. Something that makes your blood run cold and Virginia. For that could be joining New York and repealing restrictions on abortion right up to the moment of birth before a child is born. So I just wanna go over a few things that includes clued terminations up until the moment under the provisions of the Bill backed by governor Ralph Northam and a substantial number of democratic lawmakers, and I'm what you don't listen to Kathie TRAN here for our viewers. And I know you've you've heard it too. This is an extended clip I want you to be able to hear all of it. Even the uncomfortable pauses as a trend is asked some very tough questions. So let's take a listen right now. Diligent TRAN how late in a pregnancy. Would your Bill apply if a physician would simply willing to certify that the continuation of the pregnancy would impair the mental health of the woman how how late are we talking about? So the way suggestion that we've made in the Bill is to say it's in the third trimester an app that with the certification of the physician so so how late in the third trimester.
