Dwane Haskins busted for maskless strip club visit
"Let's get into our NFL news. And with that said the breaking news strip clubs and then getting cut from a team Amy. Who are we talking about Duane Haskins folks and not release that rookie season did not last very long at all boy. Did it not ever? Okay. You'll back the curtain. Let's talk about the strip club first before we go into the cutting. Here's the problem. He's now added to the list of players that can't stay away from the strip club. Apparently, he went to a strip club on a Sunday which is breaking up over data calls and is not breaking by Mortals. Are you supposed to not go to a strip club on a Sunday? That's what God Said, right? I mean, it's part of the Ten Commandments. Maybe I don't know they'll shalt not consume alcohol and before noon and attempt to strip club on a Sunday. I don't know that should be the men Commandments. Hey guys dead. Yeah, so, you know Adam to the strip club list, so they benched him on Sunday. And then apparently they just released his ass like just for the podcast right now. So look at us we're breaking news right here past and I mean not only did he get cut but then they are fighting him $40,000 for breaking protocols and going to the strip club without a mask. So you without a job and you gotta find yeah, that sucks. Terrible a $40,000 a day a lot of money. It is a lot of money and I mean, I'm sure he spent quite a bit at the strip club because that's what guys do right and women sometimes so I'm not trying to be sexist. But wow Amy you're so you know what? Yeah and me I know well, I mean life and most people but that's how many Flex I give exactly not any that's why we love Amy. Okay, so to just rule out everybody all the other Duane's this is not Dwayne Johnson dead. This is not Dwayne Harris. This is Dwayne Haskins house kids get out.

"steve kornacki" Discussed on The MMQB Podcast with Peter King
"King podcast after an incredible weekend in the nfl. But this is really a special. Peter king podcast this week. It's the first one ever that is going to be on television on peacock. So if you're watching this like i'm sure at least eighteen. Twenty twenty five million people are watching this. You're watching the first one in history so it's really cool but i really appreciate you joining me. We got a great podcast this week. We've got justin tucker of the baltimore ravens to describe what it's like to make one of the biggest kicks of your life after one of the greatest games in recent. Nfl history so justin tucker the kicker the ball baltimore ravens on the heels of their forty seven. Forty two victory over the cleveland browns. In cleveland on monday night. He'll be here. And also america's favorite steve kornacki will be here to talk about little bit about politics. But we're gonna talk a lot about america and about his love of football. It's going to be cool. So thanks so much for joining me can have a very quick open so we can get to the conversations two very interesting things that i think This week week fourteen will really be remembered for one jalen hurts his debut. I wrote a lot about this in my columnist week. But i think the most notable couple of things to realize about jalen hurts is look carson wentz. His time in philadelphia is not over. It might be. We'll see but what has to happen before then. I do want you to remember one thing though. Joe banner the former cap guy in executive of the philadelphia. Eagles told me no contract is untradable. So don't go thinking that i will. The eagles are kinda stuck with carson. Wentz i mean. I don't think the eagles are stuck with carson. Wentz second thing. What teams are likely if he ever does go on the market carson wentz number one indianapolis number two new england. There will be others. But i'll tell you what. I think going to indianapolis in a pretty quiet midwestern place in. That's where obviously carson wentz's from from north dakota i think it'd be a great match for him and reuniting with his former offensive coordinator in philadelphia frank right but anyway getting way ahead of ourselves. That's not going to be determined until the very least february when philadelphia has a chance to sit back in basically think about so second thing is with green bay winning and new orleans. Losing in this weekend you know what it means. It means that green bay not only has great shot to win home field now in the nfc but just think about how important home field would be in the nfc. Forget the crowd. I'm talking about a weather okay. So the green bay packers would have to play home games on the weekend of january tenth in the weekend of january seventeen. So what does that mean. What it means is that look at all of the southern and western teams. That are gonna be in the playoffs and might have to go to green bay on january tenth and january seventeenth with. Let's go go down in order. the los angeles rams the tampa. Bay buccaneers the arizona cardinals. The new orleans saints the seattle seahawks. No one on. Those teams plays with any regularity when it's eight degrees wind chill when it's snowing sideways so i understand crowds or a huge factor in the playoffs but there will be no crowds or there will be very very small crowds this year. The whole thing is climate and that is the biggest thing with home field in the nfc this year. So let's get to our conversations. Were going to go first to baltimore maryland. Add to the home. Actually to the basement of kicker justin tucker. Who had incredible monday night. I'm so happy this week to be joined by justin tucker The baltimore ravens. Kicker on the podcast. Not only because you know. He's topical now because of what in the baltimore. Cleveland game on monday night but also because he's a fun guest. He has the best set for the peter king podcasts. Perhaps in podcast history so justin. Thanks for joining me. And you're in a beautiful spot there in in baltimore thank you. I don't know if i should show everybody that. This is my kind of catch. All right now. We got like just like a random. Tv on the floor. You got the guitars connect guitar. You get a drought glass. Glass of prisoner. So do you play the drums. I don't they're they're they're miniature. Drums are for my my son. He said it was a it. Was the christmas gift that has kept on giving for several years. Now as as you can imagine a two three four year old boy. A loves playing his drums quite loudly much to the chagrin of his his mother and father at times. Yeah oh that's good. Well anyway thank you so much for joining and look obviously anybody who watched the monday night game this week. Baltimore forty seven cleveland. Forty two there are so many things. But what i thought it would be interesting to do is not just ask you about the game winning field goal but have you take us into what it was like to be in the middle of honestly the game of the year so far in the nfl and truly one of the great in most compelling games that that i've ever seen. And i guess. I would start out by saying you're on the females. You're watching everything happened..

"That's where this is very interesting to get that behind the scenes. Look and they were all they were all just to mike the rico just a super super welcoming super generous in in his. You really could see from my standpoint with a perot. He is just an area now. I i don't want to imply that. You didn't work hard on sunday. But i would assume that was just a complete walk in the park compared to what you had to do in that. First week of november Very different things. I think that the stress there was stress for me on sunday and it was. It was a different kind of stress. Is the stress of. I'm about to do something in front of an audience that you know i think has never heard of me Or if they have heard me they associate only with politics. So i don't have any built in credibility with this audience when it comes to football and gotta show this audience that this is not a gimmick that there's something you know useful that i can offer here so it was. It was a different kind of stress. I am i it was. It was more stressful than sitting at a bar washing games. Were you taken aback at all. By just how sort of how much attention you got. And even john king on cnn. I felt like you know. Twitter is a place where everybody hates and the two of you were so universally praised. And i you know i was thinking about it and i was familiar with both you work from past elections but it seemed like so many new people and we know from the votes the legal votes not the regular ones that More people voted. You know this year than you know. There's so many votes for both biden and trump So i don't know if it was just more eyeballs on you guys. I think people. I've just gotten into politics because of the insanity of the last four years but i was taken aback by it. Felt like somebody people are just discovering you. And even even john king on cnn. Yeah it was. It was hard from my vantage point to really see kind of what was happening..

"Msnbc political correspondent also from nbc news and One of the more popular figures of twenty twenty. Steve kornacki is joining me here after his triumphant debut on sunday night football as well as state has gone doing good. How about you doing well doing. Well you know it's funny. I you know after the election. I had thought about trying to get your john king on and then you did this sunday night. Football so great. And i'm like. I gotta get this guy on because now i have a sports angle because i can just talk to you about the election so now at least i have an excuse. I'm glad you came on. That was a lot of fun sunday night. Doing the pre game and halftime that. Show that for nbc. Thanks i appreciate you saying that because it was it was incredibly exciting for me to get a chance. You know. Yeah i do politics. I do elections. But i mean i'm a football fan my whole life and watching sunday night football since it started about fifteen years ago so to get. That chance was really thrilled for me. So i assume this was just an extension of like you know election night you really became this pop culture phenomenon and the days after since it dragged out and i guess i'm b. c. Figured like let's capitalize on this. I assume it their nbc. Sports idea had added. Come about where we got you on this. Yeah no i got a call my boss here probably a week after the election. Just saying. Hey you know. Nbc sports reached out. They have some ideas would love to talk to you. Are you interested. I sit you are you kidding. Of course and Yeah we just kind of put it together in there you go so we had sunday night. I'm sure we'll be seeing you again on their if i'm not mistaken. Yeah i think the plan is you know it's it's I did the road to seventy for most to twenty twenty and app the road of the playoffs. So we'll cover that story. You know you. will you be on this week. Do you know this sunday. That's the plan. Yeah okay okay. Because we're coming down to the nitty gritty year. So it'd be great if they got on there every week. If i don't know if that's possible but it's it's a good time to take up if i'm gonna do road to the playoffs to start to spur. I mean that's when it gets real. So yeah how much in terms of time hours minutes. Whatever it was that much prep-work did you have to do for your sunday night. Hits on football night in america. Yeah no i think. A fair amount Really familiarizing myself with the the probability models. Because that's the piece of it. That i think we were trying to add. You've got the standings one the seven you know in each conference now. The remaining schedules i mean..

"Can i think it's been harder to because. Nfl teams tend to go south quicker than they used to. You know and you can always you know dallas dallas and we're talking here before dallas place baltimore dallas place baltimore. They win the next game. They're like they're a game at first right or a half game whatever whenever it would be depending washington and the giants do so you would have never thought that the giants have appealed but now they do after the seattle game or washington when when is a a four win team with a guy who was lucky. Lucky to keep his leg clear later they go into. Mvp faded steelers in pittsburgh in december. So you don't know the way this is gonna work out. I think because there's so many tight races in the nfc. It leaves the option much more on the table than it would. In another scenario where the cowboys record was What it is but dallas delivered. The the nfc east has always delivered because of the markets. I said i used to say during the monday night days when we wouldn't get many. Nfc steams sunday that we get most of we get one. I'd say must have at least two or three times in an open. There's no rebuilding in the nfc right and now it feels like they all are and it feels like philly is is like scrambling trying to find a place to rebuild from dallas with a couple of wins away gets themselves right back right. So what's the end. I do against baltimore and then i'm sure reading. All of our objects in those guys will have a plan to do it but of watching the. That's just my own personal like i've been enough. Andy dalton. it's been enough. You mentioned monday night. I gotta ask you because people who are into media who cover media like medium. You know there is this thing about people who leave. Espn and whether they go. I think the narrative is a little false. I think more people leave. Espn and have success than people think now at dan laboratory. I think that's going to be a very interesting situation. But you're one of the people you know. Dan patrick i think maybe it was the first But leaving espn. How much of a nerve wracking decision to make i. It's it's hard because it's twenty five years of friends and and it does. This mean like you know the people you're on air with it means The producers directors you came through the ranks with a lot of people who have become management. All that stuff so it. It's that it's that as a hurdle.

"Is that going to help you at all for next week and it was really interesting to hear a coach's perspective of yeah can lay a little bit of a foundation for the bears. It did. They came out. Great guns the first three quarters and it just reminded for. Sometimes we get a little bit a little bit sharp. A little bit edgy. A little bit. complaining about games or things like that but coaches do seen in a different way. They're always trying to build for tomorrow and it did for the bears and then they revert. They became alliance of twenty twenty with what happened in the fourth. Quarter straight up. Yeah i was the Bama lsu game saturday lsu was up fifty two to fourteen and l. know alabama's fifty zero fourteen and lsu kicked field goal in the second half to me. I'm like well. What are we doing here but we did. We did circus. Notre dame at yankee stadium two years ago and circuses quarterback eric dungy got hurt nor names. Blown them out. We thought was going to be really good. Game at yankee stadium in new york syracuse. Alum doing the name game games. It was like it was christmas in november. Right and circus getting shut out. They kicked the field goal in the fourth quarter. I'll come up. Take take the bagel and move on what it is right. So it's funny because gonna ask him. We'll get into because you've been busy during quarantine and you've got some games coming up. I i it was funny because i thought of off that bears packers game that you called it. Was tony a couple of weeks ago. On sunday night football. I want to know you've been doing this a long time. Best game you've ever called worse game you've ever called worst game. Ever called was the three. Nothing steelers dolphins. Monday night in the mud in pittsburgh where the punt stuck right if like the forty eight yard line now. I don't remember that game. Remember the it was a brutal brutal monday night. Game we were looking at scoreless. Game is a terrible game. They play the high school playoff games as they often do. At heinz field the grass field was really bad. It was a monsoon of rain and emblematic of the game. Kornheiser jaws for in the booth with make and pittsburgh. Pundit i think pittsburgh appointed and the ball just stuck like right nose up in the field and was emblematic of the night of feel the quality again that that was the worst game is the final is three nothing Yeah miami on monday night or what. Quarter was remember the field goal late fourth quarter fourth quarter towards the end of the game. He some excitement then. At least i it was. The excitement was really was anybody gonna score was it was that bad The best one. I don't wanna get too jaded by the by the moment. But that notre dame clemson game double-overtime in south bend number one forty seven forty and along the game. Like i said that's up there. I'll tell you like an odd way. The big matchup game says surly. We had a buffalo dallas. Monday night game in buffalo where romo threw a bunch of picks and nick spoke then. Rookie kicker for the cowboys Hit a field goal but a timeout was called for the kick and that was before that was vote and it just happened earlier that year for the first time on an nfl stage where they slam the time to freeze the kicker raised. He's about to snap it and then spoke again..

I like looking at stuff from the past. I realized you know just twenty years ago. Back in two thousand tim. Rusher was here at nbc and know the famous moment in the two thousand election when it all came down to florida. A couple of hundred votes rusher didn't have an electronic board he had a he had a whiteboard and he just wrote down. Florida florida florida. And i think that's in the smithsonian now.

It seems like they're seven quarterback needed teams in the top ten. I'm curious you people think dallas philly atlanta detroit atlanta and detroit are interesting because i thought detroit you know if you had a more stable coaching staff i think they would have taken to tonga viola. But a train staff from what i was told. They knew they had to win this year. There going to be fired and they got fired. As far as what's going on in atlanta you're gonna have a new head. Coach is matt. Ryan gonna stay there. Julio jones going to stay there to rebuild you think you can reload tampa new orleans so the class of the The division. There so i'm not. I'm not quite sure but also i wonder as we look at these quarterbacks are going to be up for these big contract extensions given what happened with carson wentz and that contract do y give a big contract to lamar jackson. Do i give a big contract to baker mayfield. Do i give a big contract to josh allen. And i think men i fire beware with what has happened with carson wentz. Because if you can't get the colts to trade for him or maybe somebody else you're.

"A new fresh cup of joe. Johnson show muggy steam in the steam. Got that working right here Just had a nice chat. With peter. King steve kornacki the national political correspondent of nbc. News and msnbc did a great job last night at breaking down playoff probabilities. Like he was breaking down the vote. Count in allegheny county. And he's going to be joining us in about nineteen minutes time. Steve kornacki will be joining us at damien. Woody an hour number three of this show. Peter king joins us in In the first hour talked a lot about the browns and what the jets is fired. Greg williams is their defensive coordinator after they left a rookie and just an undrafted rookie. In his fifth game on an island against henry ruggs would just eleven seconds to go and all they had to do is just play prevent defense and so on and so forth because trevor lawrence is up for grabs at one point. Trevor lawrence was wearing a jets uniform. And then he was wearing a jaguars uniform and then he went back to a jets uniform again. But there's still four weeks to go and that's one of the things i want to talk about with the my next guest. Who's joining me from yahoo sports. He covers both college football and basketball for yahu sports. He's also co host of yahoo sports college. Podcast chris brockman pete family when i asked him if he had a landline. Ask people if you have a land. Call us on a landline. It's clear as his response to me on direct message on twitter quote. unfortunately i can't call from nineteen ninety-six. This is response. So i'm assuming joining us from the best line. He's got twenty twenty family here on the rich. Repeat some good. I just told your producer who who called me. That smoke signal. I do morse code if you wanna communicate. Arrive added is available to be flexible to help here. Calling me from nineteen ninety-six i. That's not a bad thing because that means michigan's about to go to the national championship game the next year. So let's keep talking. I guess from nineteen ninety-six and let us start with my alma mater. What is the latest best. You can tell me again. Ohio state set for saturday. Michigan paused all of its football activities until today is michigan. Back at it or is saturday's game with ohio state in jeopardy right now p good good question. I think the biggest question of sport right now. This is One of michigan's more relevant moments in recent years. The the sorry just has had to song. Good the all indications. I heard this morning from michigan that they're preparing the practice so you don't wanna get too excited about anything. But that is a that is a positive Dismissal optimism and positivity. I don't say positive because that can be taken the wrong way and twenty. Twenty parliament and optimism for michigan to practice today I don't know if they have decreed that yet but they were preparing to do so. When i talked to a couple of people there the sport so yeah. Michigan playing is a is a huge key to You know a lot of things in the big ten well a huge key to a lot of things in the big ten because of the rule that needs to play six games in order to compete for the conference championship. And if they haven't played those many games than one would think college. Football playoff committee would not a view that positively with positively to use your phrase. What about the concept of barry alvarez. The major domo there in wisconsin and a defacto. If you will commissioner of this league saying that we could just change the rule. What's the status right there. Well i just think it's obvious right. The big ten is not gonna hurt the big ten for rule. They made up for no particular. Good reason price right. There's a lot of money at stake at a time when people need money With with the playoffs. But there's also just prestige and nothing would would burn the big ten more than Than you know. Say to sec in two acc schools or one one acc school in one moonlighting as an acc. School getting on getting in the playoffs like that. The big ten is not going to self sabotage over Over this show look like we talked about this on our yahoo sports podcast last night and we were we were laughing just because of course the big thing is going to continue late two thou- state in what they need and i would like to think they would do it for north western or rutgers or whoever it is but they are not going to walk away and it hurts their best team or what we perceive at this point to be the best team from getting in the playoffs. They need games. They're going to get him. Gains games will be played. So i i. I'm not you know i. I think it's almost like a foregone. Conclusion is very alvarez for saying the obvious things out loud right. We're we're in an era where choosing college sports I was joked that it's the. It's hard to get people to tell you obvious things. Well that's obvious. Oh thank you bury for. Just saying how he he did. And you know with the ultimate of respect. I mean nebraska's parents were very vocal and i know Jim harbaugh was vocal. About wanting to play. Isn't playing this season at all One impart capitulation to ohio state in the big ten and i and give give them give them credit for steering. The season's been a rousing rousing fish that there was a lot of pessimism around the sport that it could be. It hasn't been perfect but It it's happening and it's happening in large part because behind the scenes. You know people like jean smith. People like ryan day and they'll move scott frost you can go on. And on they weren't they weren't the only ones who wanted to but there were. There were teams in programs. That weren't excited about playing. And i don't think at this point anyone. Anyone regrets This season having been family. Yahoo sports here on the rich eisen show does coastal carolina's win over. Byu cracked the lineup here. I know. I know we were all very you know. In in the media writ large liking gave kudos to be while you in coastal carolina for scheduling each other on the fly. But does it in in the end even matter if they're not gonna expand off a four games before teams in the playoffs. I think it matters. I mean what a great moment her for for coastal carolina. I've spent much time down there over the years. Joe moakley it. A coach is a great story. He was a he made one hundred million dollars in finance and then retired and became a college football coach and has really helped steer that program from fcs too so like. I don't know like part of college. Football like what. I don't want to become that. You're irrelevant if you're not one of the four or one of the eight or whatever. It ends up being becoming in the next few years right like that was just a great moment on a college campus. And you know the mormons. Mullets t shirts. Like that's so college football is is about you know so i thought it was awesome Love the way that you know really what inferior talent coastal carolina controlled the game Through just from the ball and fourteen and seventeen play drives and you know really really degrade limiting zach wilson's opportunities and Byu heard itself with some with some big plays. And i think they They didn't probably value every possession..

"Are Given that unchecked power to spread lies and smears than that's going to be a real problem Your book, Hoax Donald. Trump Fox News in the dangerous distortion of truth has, I don't know it seems like one hundred or so off. The record sources from inside of Fox is your worry about this. When you say I'm worried is it informed by what people inside Fox are telling you started had a lot of staffers of the network expressed concerns about a lack of strong leadership at Fox News Stafford in Sean Graph was a researcher there who spoke to me on the record still worked at Fox was I thought it was quite brave and he said Fox's allegiance with President Trump is putting our democracy at risk. So there are folks there have those concerns. But. They don't have the power. The opinion people do the propagandists do and and that's certainly the dynamic that is in effect. But I think yeah. Let's looks good this way in a more of a hopeful note Bret Baier, this newscaster who leads election-night coverage on Fox was the networks for decades. He's the ultimate DC insider. He's at the fancy dinner parties. He values his identity as a journalist in a news anchor not as a pro-trump Jabre. He doesn't want his legacy to be. That his network misinformed the country about the election. So I remember my point to you, is there a good people in important positions there who don't want it to be written down for history that? That they just let trump tried to steal the election with their with their with the help of their network. So your book really does convince is very convincing that there's weakness at the top of Fox. That leader is not Roger Ailes at some Suzanne Scott who just in one anecdote Sean Hannity was the hype man for trump at a rally and you have you ever seen where? Bret Baier and Chris Wallace some of the straight news anchors at Fox said this can't happen again and afterwards you know an example of asking for forgiveness rather than permission afterwards, they were assured that it wouldn't happen again but I do you know when when I asked you who's going to stop this you name the anchorman you didn't need management I would like to name management That's why I call it. The Murdoch's instead because ultimately it's their network answers and Scott and others that gives run at four the myrtle. but but when it comes down to election, we guess we'll be Suzanne Scott and J Wallace was the president of the network and it'll be there deputies who have their fingers on the triggers by is they are in the control room. Pressing the buttons, running the network, running the show and a lot a lot will depend on on what choices they make. Brian stelter is the host of reliable sources and author of Hoax Donald, Trump Fox, news, and the dangerous distortion of truth. Thank you Brian, thank you..

"If they are all essentially sending the proper message that it might be too early to tell, will that counteract whatever messaging trump and trump does have either via fox or online sources. All I can say is I. Hope. So but I think we live in. A polarized information environment where most people are not consuming hyper partisan news all the time but they do see it some places sometimes and then there are certainly a really intense political junkie audience that is glued to Fox that does believe the deep state is out to get trump or that. Option to that the end of that story line. For various reasons, right there people who choose to believe that the elections rigged because it's part of a storyline that they are familiar with the except. I guess my point is I'm trying to say is that's not the majority of the population. In fact, it's not even close to the majority. It is a it is a slow sliver of the country, but that's sliver is still vocal and can still be impactful. and. That's of course, includes the president of the United States but most people, right they consume using a sponge. They see if you see or the AP or see on and I think you know those outlets clearly, we're going to be responsible. I think a lot of pressures on Fox about how Fox handles the selection process, the network as strong decision Dansk, they have veterans she know how to project races who know how to make calls. They have strong news anchors who understand what's at stake here but Fox also has really really loud propagandists who are more popular than the newsman. So the pressure will be on the Murdoch's to Let the news outweigh outshine the propaganda. election-night signs that we should be concerned about if we see certain things happening on Fox that are aren't happening elsewhere historically, Fox's coverage on election nights has been produced by the news side. The opinions nine understand those two sides blurred a lot but. The angers. Bret Baier Martha McCallum our commentators or people that Chris Wallace and Brett Hume. On, until eighteen the midterms Sean, Hannity never even a single appearance on election night coverage. I think if we see Hannity and we see you Laura Ingraham Tucker Carlson if they're calling in if they're appearing on the on the air and shouting about fraud shouting about a reduction that is deeply troubling that'll be deeply troubling. We need more reporting unless opining in general especially on election night or election week this too sensitive and too serious to have a bunch of people screaming into the microphone and that's why I say. It's a big responsibility for the Murdochs. So even beforehand, we could get a sense of where Fox's going with this. If they announced, you know, are you GE- election night lineup and you see Tucker Laura Hannity as part of that that's right but I think the plan is already in place that it'll be news anchors that will definitely be the plan you know at the end of the day that's election. I told the only nights of the year when the news anchors win the pennant people thinking that off. So. That's fully my petition again this year but let's play out a scenario where two days into the vote counting when Biden clearly has managed but networks trying to be very careful and are trying to make sure more ballots arrived by mail or council by the states. Let's imagine a scenario where. Sean Hannity Show. Is Back on. and. he's in touch with trump and he has trump calling in ranting and raving about a rigged election ranting and raving about election being stolen to let that out on the air unchecked and unbalanced will do serious damage. So election night is one thing and I think Fox has a certain plan for election night. But let's game it out a few days if the Fox propagandists who are more popular among the audience..

"Politics in this era. So. One less thing I. I mentioned in the Intro show. But I. AM curious what role shutdowns play in the public education if they play any role whatsoever but you know that ninety, five, ninety, six, one, I, I was young growing up in DC maybe I just felt it more because it was like, Oh this city is now very quiet but you know if felt like a big big big deal in the way you're scraping Steve and then thirteen felt like A. sideshow and then I bet you listeners can't even remember how many shutdowns there have been since then there was one in January two, thousand eighteen and there was one in December January twenty nineteen. So. Tell me if you disagree with my premise, but you know it kind of feels like maybe the boy who cried shutdown or something like there's a little bit of fatigue here around it and they don't feel like these seismic events as much anymore. I feel like the term shutdown has two distinct meanings in our politics. One is the literal shutdown where the government doesn't have the money to pay for Louise to staff and has to shutdown furloughs novice, and then there's the shutdown as a media. And I. think that's where Nineteen ninety-five was the biggest shutdown Miller actually even a series of shutdowns and ninety five. But only one was a major meeting event shut down. It was November of nineteen ninety five and it was again there was at that point there was one cable news channel it was CNN there was no fox no msnbc it was still you know NBC CBS ABC Big Network News Coverage you know people still read their local newspaper. There was a more limited source of news and. To all of these news outlets, this was yeah I think your memory certainly matches up with mine. This was a huge deal and it was like you know turn on the news at six thirty in his to shots of silent that buildings and national parks and all of this, and you felt I I was in, you know small town in Massachusetts as. Far. Away, from the federal government but I felt like something momentous was happening in the world again, it was purely because of the media coverage I was absorbing an by I. Certainly, even the second shutdown in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, five, and January, ninety, six they had another one you know much more I think the media we've done this before. And I think, yeah, I think they're not. They're not treated as those those major. With the same gravity as that wasn't right because in one thousand, nine, hundred, five, it's still I think exactly right it has this kind of novelty to it because it's not until nineteen eighty when the controller general of the United States reinterprets this nineteenth century act and says, no, no no. If you don't have a budget agreement, you have to shut down the government and send everyone home. You can't just run on fumes here and so when it actually happens in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five or an extended period of time it's shocking. It's new Jodi as you were saying now we've gotten to like how many shutdowns at. This point it's it's just it's not immediate event because it's not novel in the same way that it was in the nineties. There's one other element here which I don't even know if I believe myself. But what's the point of having a podcast if he can't things like this, but you know I do think like shutdowns sequestration debt ceiling fights like I think that maybe the the feeling that these aren't as seismic events anymore maybe they were even just five ten years ago maybe has something to do with the fact that like the government budgets and like Dat and all these things are less salient issues. Now I feel like. One of the lessons last four years is that we've kind of gotten over for better or worse carrying about debt and fiscal responsibility. Maybe it's just that a big budget showdown doesn't. Doesn't. Feel like it means something to us or whatever. I don't know. I, believe the deficit hawks come back the next time there's a Democratic president after election. Yes that's right. After inauguration. Yes. That might that might seasonal bird. That's a good line. All Right Steve You anything you want at that. Point there and I I think they were what we might have substituted for the shock value of debt ceiling brinkmanship and government shutdowns and all that is just as trumpism. Got A president who says in tweets things that could never have imagined the president saying tweeting, setting off these these debates and discussions and just areas near went before and then suddenly The deficit went up. If you've come that affect though. Yeah All right. Well, we're going to leave it there, Steve Kornacki of NBC and MSNBC, and the excellent book, the Red and the blue thank you so much for doing this.

"This freshman senator sort of like walking over tall the tea party caucus in the house and just rabble-rousing in a pretty effective way There's a there's a lot of bad blood back there well in an effective way. Outside of Ted, Cruz gets a lot of time. Effective in that it sort of bolsters this tea party caucus and keeps them nipping at John Bainer Heels John. Bainer has a memoir about to come out and I suspect he will have lots of words about Ted Cruz in it. I'm sure. Yeah, and I mean there's there's a long history of maybe this. Much of the roots of it of sort of what people think about. Ted. Cruz. And his role you know kind of within the party it is interesting though that you have Harry Reid and McConnell and both of them though they're not backing Cruz eat obviously, Harry Reid is not but even think Mitch McConnell was kind of saying like what is the endgame here? So Ted Cruz does seem to be. Going alone. We should take one more moment to just talk about this twenty one hour faux filibuster because why is it a fake filibuster because you can't because he was there wasn't actually any legislation he was holding up sort of seizing the floors that. Yeah the bill hadn't. Passed the House that he was actually filibuster gives a twenty one hour speech at let's people remember. But during it I mean he he does a lot of stuff. He reads a children's story. He talked about how he really likes White Castle he compared obamacare to, Nazism I think are sort of on the on the BINGO card It was quite it was quite the thing and you know Steve were you at Msnbc at that point? Did you guys how did you guys sort of treat this and think of this as a news event? Yeah. No I. I. was had been here about a year at the time and I I remember my my memory of it. I should say was again there never was a moment when you thought he was going to win. In legislative sense, it was always a question from the beginning of when it would end. But again, I think cruise was defining victory here in different terms. Victory was really what he got out of that victory was. You guys. Celebrity got a political notoriety out of it. You mentioned McConnell I. Think this was the believe this was when he accused McConnell lying. And made a big enemy out of Mitch McConnell. But again, the the game that cruise was playing politically to position himself for twenty sixteen was to make people like Mitch McConnell. Mad At him to have stories written saying Oh these Republican leader DC can't stand Ted Cruz, all the easier for him to go out to Iowa word, go to New Hampshire to go to Republican grassroots meetings and say. Hey look you know they don't like me 'cause I'm trying to make them stick to their word the word they gave you it. It's just I think it's a moment that helps you understand a little bit. It's one of those rise of trump moments. I think because Amb what crews was tapping into was what trump really it in twenty, fifteen in two, thousand sixteen and that was just. Really boiling over Republican conservative grassroots anger not at the Democrats and Obama that was there but at their own party yeah. It was fascinating to see that kind of boil over an even though cruises freelancing in twenty thirteen, he's playing in the same space that Republicans had been playing in throughout the Obama era, which was to come up with lake crazier and crazier stunts to somehow obstructed the Obama. Agenda. Often quite successfully, but that Mitch McConnell would then when the Republicans were in the majority in the Senate, would really run with in Twenty fifteen in two thousand sixteen just like innovating ways to both sees the narrative but also to prevent the Obama agenda from going forward and so he kinda moves closer to where Ted Cruz is because I think McConnell to senses something's in the air. I mean that's you know I think there's there's two sort of tactics roots here that we can see in the sort of way you play the the modern media. Environment, but there is also just obamacare itself as a as an issue that Republicans keep going back to in there and trump continues to go back to its Steve. So I mean, are you surprised that all Republicans are still fighting against Obamacare? When by you know if you do an actual ledger tally, they've never had actual successful fight against it. I'm surprised a little bit that it carried over to the degree. It did did it got to even when trump became president got that vote on the floor were McCain John McCain in two thousand seventeen gave that famous thumbs down I'm a little surprised at that. It got to that point. Because I think they're worse off ramps for them You could see that the politics of this really. Never changed in. From where they were in twenty three once it became the Long Gland I mean Aston Twenty ten from that moment on politics of this, we're going to be different because you were going to be up against the accusation that, hey, you're trying to take away protections for conditions right now that was what Democrats were always counting on once they got it through very hard ache way and I think that was established pretty early pretty quickly and pretty consistently, and so yeah, I thought by this point They would have repositioned themselves a little bit on healthcare although it's one of those you know trump I feel now sometimes that when trump brings it up, it's it's sometimes it's an a greatest hits kind of way. Yeah. Yeah. You know where he just remembers. Oh. Yeah. You got. It when I. If there is the second trump term. I'm not sure I use a little surprised if you got a another vote like you had twenty. All I know you're being slightly facetious but I do think like this era right this moment twenty, ten to twenty. Let's call fourteen or fifteen just solidified A. Type of politics and playbook. And you know you talked about at the very beginning you kind of joked like, oh, this seems like a long gone era seven years ago. But it also I think really also strikes me as an opening bracket for the kind of politics we have now with the media environment twitter. I remember this this Ted Cruz floor speeches. One of those things where it's like it was a wild political moment and then just the way that it fractured in the media and you could just sense like twitter was going in one direction on cable news going in another and talk radio is going in another and you know like that's very much still with us and you can kind of see the roots of the explosion in that moment for sure you know the thing I remember to was the backdrop then. For. Me At least was there had been a big government shutdown in the ninety s when it was Newt Gingrich versus Bill Clinton and I had been the last big kind of confrontation like this to Washington and that one had that would not worth twelve the Republicans that was over Medicare funding and that was. That was bill. Clinton saying I will shut down the government sooner than I sign your, you know your building which slowed down the rate of increase Medicare, spending and Bill Clinton politically was seen as having won that very dramatically going from a very bad and ninety four to an easy reelection in ninety six and I think it was interesting to me in two thousand, thirteen to twenty fourteen was politics of it broadly looked like they were breaking STAS badly against the Republicans. Now I mean, there was an urgency you would hear and. News coverage seeing news coverage of. The McConnell types, their aides, folks talking to the press. You know making very clear. You know Republican leaders see this as a dead end one out there trying to get Cruz under control all these sorts of things because the polling really you know really bad for them and I think there were evoking a lot of comparisons to you know ninety, five, ninety, six and. Is this GONNA got midterm coming in twenty fourteen usually they're bad for Democrats is this GONNA give Democrats new life and I? It's it's twenty thirteen shutdown outward I remember politically and I've tried to keep in mind is that twenty fourteen despite the shutdown Ted Cruz shutdown looking like a political disaster for Republicans. Twenty fourteen midterms were anything but ages asked her for Republicans. Like they've never been a shutdown in terms of aren't. Results that year He and I think that the calculus difference between the two of those is really interesting because Newt Gingrich in a lot of ways was playing to the broad American electorate trying to get them on his side and in the case of two, thousand, thirteen, Ted Cruz, and the tea party caucus were playing to the base and that ended up being a winning strategy for them, and that sort of knowledge of if we can get our basic cited, we can continue to have a hold on power has been kind of defining feature of Republican.

"He did what would happen. I. Still Kinda Wonder Nikki any. Thoughts here about kind of how serious the conversation is right now about the Electoral College, we have I think mentioned the sort of national popular vote movement on this show before that maybe there's a way to circumvent amendment and that the states would just kind of all pledge together to to do this but you know. We don't make predictions on this show, but where do you see this going? Well look I think it's a very serious conversation I. think There is a lot of reassessing of institutions and norms and especially things that could. Contribute to a continuing legitimacy crisis and I think there's some real fears that disconnect between the electoral, college and the popular vote is contributing to a legitimacy crisis in American government. So I do think that it is a live issue I think nine hundred seventy reminds us is that constitutional amendments are really really really hard to get past. I mean Americans supported the constitutional amendment in nineteen seventy, eighty percent. It's about sixty percent now. So it's still overwhelmingly popular but in order to get the electoral college polished and this is why the constitutional amendment system set up the way that it is you have to get small states to vote against their interests because you. Have to get the two-thirds majority in Congress but you also have to get three quarters of the states to ratify it. That means some of those small states have to have to go that way. So you know I think we're GONNA see a lot of institutional reform in the coming years constitutional amendments. We haven't seen one since nineteen, ninety two really hard to get past. We'll see what happens what was ninety-two should know this ninety two was Oh, about congress not being able to vote itself a pay raise in the same situation it's actually the oldest amendment had been proposed back in the eighteenth century it just took two hundred some odd years to get ratified. All right. Well, I didn't know that. Stevie final thoughts here. Yeah. No I you know it's it's just interesting to me what he's saying it's it's every time. This has been pulled to varying degrees. It's been very popular, but that's the nature of our politics. When are twenty twenty we still? Well, there's some nice symmetry there with the popular vote that maybe sometimes the just the raw number of Americans who believe in something don't always get their way. He said there we go.

"This Day September twenty, ninth nineteen seventy a Senate vote falls six votes, shots. Okay. Senate votes fall shy all the time. So what were they voting on? They were voting on an amendment to the constitution that would have scrapped effectively the electoral college and replaced it with a much simpler system based on the popular vote no more five hundred, thirty electoral votes a huge change in the structure of our democracy more importantly a real sliding doors moment for nate silver no more five, thirty, eight no. More me I don't know where I would have worked. From two, thousand, fifteen in two, thousand, nineteen always about me and who knows what Steve Kornacki job would look like without all the electoral math He is our guest for this episode, Hello Steve Kornacki national political correspondent for NBC News, and MSNBC thank you for joining us. We've been trying to get you on the show for a while. So I'm really glad you could do it. I had never quite thought of it the way you were just describing it there. But yeah, the implications for what we do without the state based system I. What would your map like looks the this is this is an old journalistic trick whenever you encounter an interesting story. The first question to ask is, what would this mean for me? And then you and then you work up from there. And as always with US Nicole Hammer of Columbia. Hello Nicki Jody I think you would have had to have called it something like the three, hundred, thirty, million instead. It's a harder you are out to type in. So Steve I mean one thing you know we've learned on this show and it's important to think about in history is you know context is everything and fights that macy my principal fights are not principled face. They're often about the particular context and it seems to me like you don't understand this moment where the electoral college almost gets scrapped without really understanding what happened in the nineteen sixty, eight presidential elections he kinda want to lay that groundwork for us. Sure. Yeah in sixty eight, I think it's no coincidence that in the aftermath of sixty eight, they came the closest they've come to getting rid of the electoral college because I think both parties could look at what happened in Sixty Eight, NC an incentive or changing things because the the unique wrinkle and sixty eight was yet had a candidate. George Wallace who had been a Democrat ran an independent was serve. It was a segregationist who ran with the expressed intent of. Throwing the election to the House of Representatives basically gobbling up enough states in the south that nobody could get the two hundred seventy electoral votes and then as always talk about one of the scenarios if you get a tie or if nobody gets to two seventy S, the election goes to the House of Representatives. Each state delegation gets one vote in Wallis and his backers basically southern backers believed this would be a maximum leverage opportunity for them. So that was that. was his goal and he won he ended up winning. You know five southern states Nixon got elected Nixon got three hundred one electoral votes popular vote was very close to Hubert Humphrey Democrat came within about a half, a million votes of of actually beating Nixon for the popular vote but I think both Nixon coming out of that and Humphrey, and the Democrats coming out of that realized that the scenario where they're both kind of held up by George Wallace. This very sort of polarizing force in American politics I. Think both of them could come out of that seeing an of and in fact, that was really sixty eight was the second time in twenty years that it's something like that almost happened because in forty eight, it had been Strom Thurmond Strom Thurmond yen had been a Democrat conservative Democrats aggregation is formed the dixiecrats and again thought in the forty eight election he could win southern states you know to throw it to the House I think I think Truman one, forty election I think his electoral number was was almost. Identical to what Nixon's yeah, he won. It was three Oh three or something like that. But but basically in forty eight and again in sixty eight, almost the same thing happened. So I think it was one of those moments when both parties could kind of walk away from the election and say, maybe we should rethink this thing. Yeah. It was a really popular idea within the conservative movement to try to get a conservative president by throwing the presidential election into the electoral college and it seems like this crazy idea when I was in the archives reading about this I was like. That seems like a stretch but in the context of this period between forty eight and sixty, eight, it kind of been alive issue. So you end up with this amendment, and one thing to point out is that there is you know there's always a legislative path that involves tweaking fiddling around the edges of a systems especially system as complicated as this But instead what ends up happening is something that would just basically completely scrap it and turn to what I've heard as described as a kind of more French style voting, which is. Basically straight up popular vote and then if if neither of the winners gets forty percent, which I guess would mean if there's a very split vote, then it goes to a second round but basically, you know popular vote winner-takes-all. So Nikki do you have a sense of why they went with the let scrap the whole thing as opposed to let's fiddle around the edges yeah. I mean a lot of it has to. Do with the person behind the amendment, which was Indiana Senator Birch by. So Birch by in nineteen, sixty three had become the head of this arcane almost scrapped subcommittee in the Judiciary Committee that was focused on constitutional amendments, and it was a really auspicious time for him to be there because one of the very first things he's handed is coming up with an amendment to clear up the line of succession With became a live issue after JFK was assassinated but you know he had been paying attention to what was happening in the Supreme Court and the Supreme Court at the time had made a bunch of rulings that introduced an underscored this principle of one person one vote it was kind of a radical democratizing idea. The Supreme Court had promoted by was like you know for doing this one person one vote I. Kinda. Have to get rid of the electoral college because the Electoral College doesn't make any sense. If our foundational principle is one person one vote everybody gets equal apportionment and so he had already been thinking about this kind of amendment to scrap the Electoral College. Entirely when the nine hundred sixty eight election happened he starts seizes on the moment I think the other you know ingredient think he's getting there was the conservative movement saw an opportunity but that wasn't yet now against with the Republican Party and so you had a lot of Republican by I think Howard Baker was one. Of the becoming later on the the Senate Republican leader was an advocate for the popular vote. So you had sort of institutional Republican Party folks who were not interested in having anything to do with alliance with George Wallace that could you know recede to get? Barry Goldwater style president put in place so it was it really was a different time in American politics. I think is the thing to appreciate where the party's just weren't defined the way they are now demographically and culturally and I think we can. You know we here today one person one vote in that sounds like a no brainer. For Conservatives and conservatives in the Democratic Party and the Republican Party, this was a real threat I mean the the response to this in nineteen sixty four was where a republic not into Moxie like the idea of one person one vote is actually anti-american in the conservative you at this time there is a real fight, but it's a fight that's not defined by party lines but by this Right. So let's talk about how that has evolved over over time in the decade since I'm and there's a ton to tease out here I mean I will say one thing I just am curious about Steve is you know have fights over the Electoral College? Tended to become more polarized over the decades or have they always sort of because right now, it feels like a proxy fight for in this moment, you know Democrats and Republicans has it always been that way or or has it has.

2020 Daily Trail Markers: Ohio wraps up mail-in primary
"One hundred eighty nine days until the presidential election in November today. Ohio held its primary election almost entirely by mail due to the Corona Virus Pandemic Ohio had postponed its primary which was originally scheduled for March Seventeenth. Joining us now with the latest election. News from Ohio. Is Steve Kornacki at the big board? Boy It's fun to say that having said that Milwaukee Steve. What happened in Ohio? What does it tell us about November? Yeah it's interesting Lords. We haven't had one of these really. This is the last of this kind it all that we're going to have this year so enjoy this one. What would it mean by? That is officially the primary is today. The ballots were due today or at least had to be postmarked by last night. But if you remember back in March when this primary was postponed there had already been some votes cast for this. They had in person early voting going for a while in Ohio. They'd had some ballots. That were that were sent in already. So basically what they said back in March was all. Those ballots will count. And then we're going to do a mail in primary in late April. So you've got a mixture. These results here are sort of a mix some of these votes were cast when this was still a competitive race when Bernie Sanders was running against Joe Biden and a lot of these votes were cast after Bernie Sanders dropped out of the race and endorsed Joe Biden. So exactly which come from the B- each bucket. We don't really know but this is the last time really you're going to have votes. That were cast win. This was hey competitive racing again biden obviously not surprisingly a winning this thing overwhelmingly. There's a chance sanders will actually get some delegates out of this. Every single county in the state going for Joe Biden in the big question as you. Lawrence's what does this mean for November? What does it mean in terms of what our election is going to look like in November? Because what happened here in Ohio where they had to scramble in improvise and basically turn this into a Mayo in primary election. A lot of states are going to have to ramp up and do that this November. And they haven't tried it before administratively. They haven't had the scale of mail-in ballots. They're going to deal with this year. So here's a question here of how this goes in Ohio it. Does it indicate how it will look at other states can tell you. There are still some votes to to becoming ignore this number. That's based on old math but there are still some more votes to come in but it looks like Democratic. Turnout IS DOWN THIRTY. Three percent roughly thirty three percent. That's the trend. Right now about thirty-three percent down from twenty sixteen but again in two thousand sixteen a very competitive primary Hillary Clinton versus Bernie Sanders not so competitive primary. This time so tough to know exactly what that decline in turnout means. Certainly they did get a lot of votes. Were cast in this thing. The main issue is this. It's GonNa take a few days. I think to figure this out. There were some voters in Ohio in Ohio saying I requested a mail ballot and it never arrived in. The mail was going slow in some parts of the states. Because of this pandemic it was running. You know five ten days behind schedule so I think what they were. GonNa find out here. In the next few days I think is how many how widespread was it. That people requested ballots and didn't get them was a small issue that can be fixed in other states or was it a broader issue. That's what we're going to learn the next couple of days Lawrence
Chris Matthews retires from MSNBC after string of recent controversies
"Chris Matthews who has been at MSNBC and before that C. N. B. C. in within the NBC family for well over two decades has hosted hardball since nineteen ninety seven came on the air last night and announced he was done retiring he was the announcement cut thirty one let me start with my headline tonight I'm retiring this is the last hardball on MSNBC and obviously there's a lack of interest in politics you can tell I've loved every minute of my twenty years as host of hardball every morning I read the papers I'm going how to get to work not many people had this privilege I love working with my producers and discussions we have over how to report the news I love having this connects with you the good people who watch learn who you are thank you to you on the sidewalk grid waiting in an airport and say hello you're like me I heard from your kids and grandchildren say my dad loves or my grandmother ledger my husband watched until the end of the conversation MSNBC I decided tonight will be my last hardball so let me tell you why the younger generations out there ready to take the reins we see them in politics and the media in funding for the causes they are proving the workplace we're talking here about better standards that we grew up with fair standards a lot of it has to do with how we talk to each other compliments on a woman's appearance that some men including me one of one sitting correctly thought were okay we're never okay not Dan is certainly not today and for making such comments in the past I'm sorry so there was a piece that came out last week of a woman who said that she was harassed or made uncomfortable by sexist comments in the past from Chris Matthews that probably turned up the heat on this situation keep in mind that Matthews had been forced to apologise for a comparison he made involving Bernie Sanders and Hitler back in the Nevada caucuses when they were covering that and he also had an exchange with Elizabeth Warren that was considered by a lot of their viewers to be sexist so there is this storm brewing get said some things on there that had rankled folks there's clearly stuff going on behind the scenes and it sounds like he was being forced out over some of these allegations how new or fresh the allegations are what specifically they are we don't have that full picture but he's framing at in this segment like he made the decision to retire it kind of sounds like it might have been a coerced retirement by the sounds of it but here's his big fat well income thirty two I'm very proud of the work I've done here long before I went on television I worked for years in politics was a newspaper columnist and author I'm working on another book on continue to write and talk about politics and Cheryl and my producers and crew here in Washington and New York and my M. S. N. B. C. Collings they will continue to produce great journalism in the years ahead and for those of you have gotten in the habit of watching hardball every night I hope you're going to miss because I'm gonna miss you but remember Humphrey Bogart in casa Blanka boys have hardball so let's not say goodbye but so we meet again you know I was wondering where they may be going to shuffle him too a senior contributor or an analyst or something like that sounds like he's out right that's the understanding and look I washed hard ball a little bit when I was younger they're a competitor not even sure what time is on a young five o'clock six o'clock eastern he's on a seven shows up against Martha yeah they've they've bounced around the time a little bit but he's up against Martha I'm usually if I'm watching cable news I'm watching the story his politics don't align with mine I think he's more of an old school Liberal Democrat then one of the new hardcore left wing folks that definitely have a significant voice at that now working within that audience and I have no idea of no extra info behind the scenes aside from some texting as I mentioned back and forth the some NBC folks that I know who seemed very surprised there was some contrition and some allusions two comments that were made I just wonder is that really the whole story it seemed very abrupt so abrupt in fact this was the most bizarre part of it Matthews did his opening segment where does a monologue it's let me start and then at the end of the show he doesn't let me finish monologue he did the let me start open thank you left that was over and they have to fill the rest of the hour they had Steve Kornacki who sort of there are political data winners young guy roughly my age looking absolutely stunned sitting there kind of forced to take over the show at that point and I don't understand how this worked out logistically behind the scenes did he not know what was coming they were gonna give Matthews the final full hour of hard ball it was just all very odd here's Kornacki taking over and seeming a bit bewildered and gut punching cut thirty three that was a lot to take in just now I'm sure and I'm sure you're still absorbing that and and I am too Chris Matthews is a giant he's a legend it's been an honor for me to work with him to sit in here on occasion and I know how much you meant to him and I know my how much he made to you and I think you're gonna miss him and I know I'm going to and then he says well we've got a finish this hour so we're gonna take a break no bells and whistles and we'll be right back I mean it's just sort of I've never seen anything like that and look I am empathetic here to Steve Kornacki I remember when Shep Smith at the very end of his final show said Hey I'm don this is my last show here at fox news it's been real we were watching it on the top of the hour here in this studio that I came on in the very next segment at four oh five eastern it was reacting in real time but I wasn't nearly as close to shop at all as Steve Kornacki is to Chris Matthews I know shop a little bit professionally we hung out once or twice outside of work but that was it it's clear that Kornacki was a little bit shaken and at the end of the hour he did another farewell and tribute to Matthews where he got actually choked up it was obvious that he was emotional about what happened how it went down and it does seem like a kind of dropped out of the blue so a very significant shakeup at
All eyes on Iowa — and Buttigieg
"First and foremost though the Iowa caucuses is about one hundred days out so for today's forecast we're gonNA focus their Harry how are the Democratic candidates ranking in that wonderful state of a wonderful Hawkeye state I do believe not the buckeyes state is some people sometimes call it why though high because it says I there's is there's Look here here's the key thing in Iowa that is so important and basically what you have is that bombarding and Warren at this particular time our hugged together in the low twenty s and this has been fairly consistent since August and what's important here about Iowa that really separates it out nationally is that Buddha judge can make the argument is in third place in Iowa he's somewhere in the low to mid teens right with Bernie Sanders and of course Iowa votes I so a Buddha judge could potentially win there and he may very well could because essentially at this point I would only say that Biden warned combined have somewhere between a fifty five and sixty percents of which leaves forty to forty five percent chance that one of those two won't win that could change the entire dynamic of the field you've spent so much time an Iowa John Please regale us with your stories from the trail may I was stories I prefer to New Hampshire first of all this is he's got a real eye opener reporters do because they're nicer in Iowa and the events are more spread out geographically in that means that I think that each voter actually gets more direct contact with the candidate So I think that the voters in Iowa have such a a a a serious decision process they go through when picking the candidates Biden and Warren bunched up though I mean I don't see that last thing all the way through well I I guess that's the real question right I mean it's been pretty steady since August but you know as Biden Warren have sort of gone after each other you know perhaps or at least Biden's gone after Warren more kind of stays in her own sorta lane there there's going to be this craving for this third alternative right aura fourth alternative and essentially you know if you were to look what is this most like a you know Steve Kornacki my dear friend that MS has said it remains and some of the two thousand four race right where you essentially Dean and Gephardt sort of up there and then you had carrying it where it's kind of a little bit back and then eventually people got the second a top two and then the third and fourth place people ended up finishing in first and second and so I'm not sure can last but at this point you know if you want the argument that worn is rising nationally which we could get to we will that's not the case in Iowa it's really not she has been steady around twenty on twenty two twenty three percent of the vote since the middle of August and Joe Biden who has either fallen or not nationally has been steady in Woah at about the same amount without an organization in without minority voters that's the key difference right that's the key difference between Iowa which probably allows Buddha judge to come in and capitalize on the state of Iowa people to judge is going nowhere with non white voters non white voters are very small percentage he hasn't gone anywhere yet correct white voters but of course momentum comes out of Iowa at least some momentum will then when you hit New Hampshire that's right that's the question is can Buddha judge sort of take I will use it as a launching pad then go on to New Hampshire and it may be that problem we had with non white voters goes audio semi-ghost Goodbye C. L. later what is it about Buddha judge in Iowa is it is it is it is it ground game he hasn't he opened maybe the most if not tied with I don't Know Elizabeth Warren and opening the most offices and he's got Bolos money so he's spending an organization they're he has got a mid Western appeal now I don't know as much about Indiana as some people here donald but it does begin with I and so does Iowa but he's we're all the same it is the mattingly I think closer than some other states that people are just S. so then you know what strikes me as as you did what I think was the most important early interview with people judge in introducing him I think in many ways to the country three even before the town meeting they got so much that people to actually running for the middle of the country he was positioning himself to be the mid Western reds trump's state yeah can't it so that's why I think that he may be connecting in Iowa and I would just argue you know there have been candidates before who have done better in the Mid West than they've done say nationwide you know you can think about Paul Simon Aviator Dick Gephardt eighty a Bob Dole look inside in one thousand nine hundred eighty or even ninety six although we actually did slightly worse in ninety six but the point is is there is this potential sort of home region effect that we also see I'm sure right where the candidates from next door Massachusetts and Vermont tend to do better I think there's an argument to me made that the candidates next door I tend to do better in part perhaps because they sort of speak Iowa can I just say one of the thing though you talked about two thousand four Democratic race I think the one thing people are just be worried about is that it's not to that doesn't sixteen Republican version were Marco Rubio does really well compared to what people thought he finishing third there's no moral victory I think any more has has slipped like Steve Bullock's like if everyone finishes in the top five then they definitely have a chance coming by air the day of the Iowa caucus place fourth and fifth and to ride ticket to ride my

Broward County, Senate And Broward discussed on The 11th Hour with Brian Williams
"Terrific political future. Brian was unrelenting and will become a great governor for the truly capitalized wonderful people of Georgia. It also appears tonight that Florida Senate race nearing the end of the road. They're back at the big board again for us tonight. Steve Kornacki, our national political correspondent, hey, Steve. Hey, Brian yet, and we may finally have clarity in the sunshine state. So in this recount now the manual recount in this Senate race in Florida playing out, of course, Nelson has been trying to overcome that twelve thousand vote against against Scott. The main will recant statewide continuing until Sunday, they won't release a final total till then. But today it finished it started and finished in the critical county of Broward County heavily democratic massive Broward County in again, the issue we've been talking about in Broward County, it really is the ball game in this. Senate election. It's the under vote if you look at the Senate race in Broward County, total number of votes that were cast in Broward. If you look at the governor's race same ballot total number of votes cast that's an under vote there of more than twenty six thousand contention from the Nelson campaign. The reason why there was still some suspense in this race. Was they said, hey, there were votes cast twenty plus thousand of them in the Senate race that the machine didn't read the
Yes, There Was a Blue Wave. But How Big Was It?
"In the city are a disgrace. I wanted to watch twelve twelve hour old news clips or old episodes of talk stoop. I would seek them out on my own. And why is it literally impossible to hit the button to turn it off? Come on New York. I just want to note that annoying feature in taxis got louder applause democracy there. For my rent. I want to mention one thing that I was kind of surprised not to hear from the president to sit. I want to mention one thing that I was kinda surprised not hear from the president today. Which is he didn't say this was a fake election result. There was no claim of three million illegal votes in this election. I think it's because he's not the one who personally lost. If he loses somebody else must have cheated. But if other people lose they must have been stupid or they must not have embraced him enough. But still it seems like that was an option available to him. This is a thing you hear a lot from Democrats about while the president is going to call into question the legitimacy of these things that go against him. And certainly sometimes he does that. But I was interested to see today that he chose not to do that and entirely sure why that's all we have time for tonight.
