How Do You Feel About Freedom Day? With Shelley Treacher
"Shelly. Thanks for joining us today. we wanted to talk to you about freedom day as it's been cooled while the restrictions lift everything's going back to normal and i guess the big question is you know. There's a lot of excitement around freedom day but a low of also feeling not excited and more kind of anxious and worried uncomfortable. Why is that. What's worrying about freedom honestly. I think it's really normal response to a very abnormal situation with still in an abnormal situation. I mean coming out of long. Isolation caused by terrifying deadly threats on other systems is still going to be triggered. One reason we might feel like this is because we've got used to being on god and it might take a while to come out with the body's threats like response to calm down and to get back to normal because we've been vigilant for so long and on top of that it's also possible that some of us have developed social anxiety after being isolated from others for so long so we might have a natural inclination to just wanna stay indoors and you know some of us might have here of being seen having relied on food to cope with the pandemic and coping with the pandemic might also have caused us to block off our feelings. I think. Also one thing that i'm definitely experiencing i don't know if it's the same view both but i feel novus as kind of lifting lockdown and you know mosques no longer being required and i feel very much like is the outside world actually safe. Do you feel like. That's a coleman fear and how do we deal with. Yeah i see this all the time. I mean people go from one extreme to the other. Some people have really kind of in. Denial probably blase about the risks. But a lot of my clients are saying or. I'm not really sure this is happening. All of a sudden and is a bit of a shock. So i think probably the best thing to do is to take it slowly and to check things of change. Things are different now and it's going to take a physiological systems time to catch up with that but we need to check the news tech health things have changed and check what the actual risks are now. Because they've changed. It's been a massive journey from beginning to end this million so far and we kinda need to examine exactly what we're terrified of now because it might be stuck in a year and a half ago the also it's worth mentioning light. You can still do the safety things that he made. You feel secure like i'm going to continue wearing mosques et cetera at least for the foreseeable yes hundred percent to be on his stephen dislike having this conversation an hearing all the things you talking about. Shelly i was just getting bit. Novice abou- circus. I think the way that i've dealt with Freedom day and everything is just total. Denial you know thinking that. I'm just gonna stand. A fat is fine. I'm not going to go out. Because i can work from home. I'm not going to go out to a workplace. I'm not gonna go out an go together ings yet. I'm just gonna keep wearing my mosque. Yeah it's It's a bit of a scary time. Isn't it and yes. So i will still be wearing mosque I think for me phase around the social stuff is interesting. You mentioned around this ocean anxieties because of things do this. Whole pandemic in sums of different friends approaching the whole thing very differently so i've been incredibly cautious. My whole family's been incredibly cool shit like going way beyond the government guidelines and then seeing like one of my best friends being Not cautious and not not breaking the rules but certainly being relaxed around everything.
Why Do Elephants Like Peanuts?
"I am alice. I'm eight years old. I live in houston texas and my question is why do elephants like peanuts. Thank you great question analysis. When we're learning about animals. We tend to get our information from a lot of different places what we read what we if we can observe an animal and sometimes what we watch on. Tv and the idea that elephants like peanuts probably comes from the cartoons and movies. We've watched over. The years elephants are herbivores. That means they eat grasses and bark vegetation in zoos. They'll eat fruits and vegetables hay and sometimes pellets of food. That kind of look like pet food. The connection between elephants and peanuts is that in early. Zoos and circuses. Lots of peanuts for sold for human visitors to eat sometimes. These zoos and circuses would let humans feed the animals. And just like your dog might sometimes eat people food if you give him or her. Some the elephants would eat. The peanuts got offered these days. Zoos don't let you feed the animals and that's a good thing. Biologists and veterinarians say peanuts army. Great food for elephants so while it's funny to see elephants. Eat peanuts cartoons. They don't do it in the wild and it's not really a food. they like better than anything else.

So what is in the revised bills lives in a governor Dan Patrick says the new version of Senate Bill seven won't revive changes to Sunday voting or wording that would have made it easier for judges to overturn elections.

"the circus" Discussed on Pants On Fire
"Like there are a lot of bridges that are out. I live in bloomington illinois right in the middle of the country and strangely enough some grade school age kids started practicing at a gymnasium in the eighteen hundreds and they got good enough to become trapeze stars and they went with a circus and then it just continued to keep happening in this community. And lots of centering stars. Come from bloomington normal. yes. I live in bloomington. Is there a bloomington abnormal illinois. That would really be the name. That's our secret. Name tro maranda. Had you trained elephants for the circus. Elephants are fun because they're super smart. They're very intelligent and they love people so they listened really well And they're pretty easy to train with food. They're very food driven. So you can feed elephant peanuts endeavor. I do like peanuts girl. Who go girl deborah afraid of clouds. Oh that's a tough one. I am not afraid of clowns. But i totally understand why people might be afraid of clowns creep. Why why do you think people are afraid of clown makeup up really the pies. They're always throwing pies at. Is that why mark people don't like pies. It's possible maybe you're allergic to pie. I think it's also the idea that someone's hiding their face. John the fact that you don't know exactly what the person is underneath all of that and so putting on a happy clown face or a sad clown face or hopefully not a terrifying clowns face. It can be the nicest person or the scariest person under me. You never know you never know. And that's what makes them scary. Maybe there are all different kinds of clowns and so some clowns are silent and silent clowns. Might sneak up on tabora dan clowns behind you right. What no they're not twenty twenty. This questions for both of you was the worst. Thing about circuses. The weirdest thing all right who would like to start. I can go if you'd like. Go ahead so the weirdest thing that i learned about circuses might be the most boring is that circuses are a business And takes a lot of effort to move a circus from place to place in two or three street sometimes thousands of people working on a show and to get that show up in the morning and down at night and on the tracks. If you're on a train to the next town and the paperwork so much paperwork on the circus you would you be shocked. That does sound boring. Wow what about you miranda. What's the weirdest thing ever learned about circuses. I think the weirdest thing. I've learned is that while like the circus is a pretty old. You know it's been around for over two hundred years. Juggling is one of the actual oldest tricks in the book. People have been juggling since the ancient mesopotamia. What are they juggle. Do they have like rubber balls to juggle or were they juggling lions or what does who knows because it's all in paintings we didn't have videos we don't have videos of the ancient egyptians their pictures of them holding multiple objects and throwing them in the air and it is very possible that they were juggling. Wow mark what would he do. You're in charge of the surface. Ooh wow That would be a dream first of all. If i were in charge of the circus. I would make sure that there were. Lots of trapeze acts at the beginning of the show and at the end of the show would be bookended by trapeze. Someone would try for the quadruple. Somersault that's the most that that's ever been done. I love the tramp. He's i come from the tramp capital of the world at one time. It's in the air here. Only for a little bit. Then someone else catches have you ever been on a trapeze mark. Oh no no. That won't happen. I see scary. Yeah heights are not my thing too scary. I can write about them and and research them but never ever ever i see mccain Can you do any magic tricks or acrobatic tricks. They can see at the circus When i was a kid. I learned some trapeze. Tricks is never a performer. Are but i did learn some trapeze tracks. While i think that my circus act would be what some people here in town did. They went into management. See that's where the real money was. They used to say that they would get up on the pedestal board when they were getting ready to do their trapeze act and they would count the house the in just they would know exactly how much money was being made and so that they could go ask for a raise because they knew that the house had been good. That would be my trim making the money. All right here's a question. You hear a lot of times. People always threatened to run away and join the circus. And i want to know if that's something that really happens if that turns out well for them anybody i mean that's essentially what my grandparents did. I don't know what they were running away from. Necessarily they just decided they wanted to take the show on the road. I'm it worked out great because now our family is performers and people working for the circus and training. And you know it's in our blood now so it's a good option so yeah so even if you ever just get frustrated with life or you know things get you down you could just run away and join the circus. Does that sound good to you ethan. No why not want join a business office. It's time for the shorts on fire round when our experts have to answer as many questions as they can before.

A piece to talk about this. Let's listen. We've got people think. Questions. Let's go to the phone lines. Hello. WHO's this? Money Valerie, what did you think of the debate last night Oh my goodness I mean Donald Trump did exactly what we expected to do. If you didn't expect to do that clearly, you have been watching this man for the last hungry but I was a little bit with Biden complete because I spent it just a little bit more from him as far as telling us. What he's GonNa do He was on the defensive line and I get it. You know that's what Donald Trump does. He's swinging buddies. Marlboro. But I needed to hear a little bit more of his plan instead of what he's Donald Trump is done and I mean I like the thing about this shorter tested turn I love that and I probably would've told him. Something held up with something about my kids but. Other than that. It was right there. That was something I've never seen before in my life. That's crazy I've never seen anybody presidential or even up. At. White children acid ass until. About Donald Trump's family. Went there he could have said. So Donald Trump has his whole damn family in the White House. So I don't know he has his own writing books about what a terrible person is you WanNa talk about family. To help myself if he said anything about my kid like that and he's already lost one son and but you know this man has no morals none none. None none none. Champ thank you, Mama.

All. Right. Well, we got rooms on the way. Yes, and since we're doing debates this morning, any leaks versus Wendy Williams around ten. Battle.

The rumor report with Breakfast Club Anini has posted a new video on her youtube channel and it's US talking about her fall out with the Wendy Williams. She also addresses Andy Cohen now here is audio from before previously of Wendy. Talking about Nina leaving real housewives Atlanta with Andy Cohen I believe that this is not a truth meaning his quit the show several times and you'll have her back and Mimi likes attention. I don't know what needs to be doing for money I'm not trying to count coins, but you know the housewives is that one thing all the girls use to promote their other stuff and what are they going to do is going to be like Greg Anini, you're gonNA give them another reality show. That's boring. Now I need to tells Andy Cohen to just keep my name out your mouth listen to this. So I have been forced out of the franchise then lead my name along. Let me sit over here in he'll. Piece. If you don't have anything positive to say about me working for your network after thirteen years, stop bringing my name on your show to help your ratings. You didn't want me here. You being forced to be out for the past four years. Then you need talks about Wendy and she really goes in Wendy spin more of your time trying to figure out how you can drain your enormously large legs and feet. Okay. Opposed to worrying about my family and what we are doing, you need to find the nearest warner peel. Okay. Andy remember no one. Knew you until you knew me. I. Think Wendy Signal something that I think that's why her feet swollen a condition. Heels, anymore a she got away at. A. Sneak is something like that. Oh she hasn't condition. He said all. For us. You gotta wear like. Custom Shoes Guillano she has some Jordan Jonasson. All right. Well, that answered that.

Remember when he was on the show and I told her that trust me I know I worked Wendy for three years. She's who she is she's friends with nobody. I right now Mariah. Carey her book We gotta read this book by the way the meaning of Mariah Carey. So one of the things that she talks about in her book is basically the impact that having children had on her marriage to cannon. She said along with double the joy came double the responsibility. It was a lot of work and a lot of having to be home and available making the necessary adjustments to being working parents and entertainment took its toll on our relationship and the end of our mayors came fast as it began even though we. have pre in place divorce took two years to become final and caused hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees. She said, honestly, I think Nick Knight could've worked it out between the two of us. The Egos and emotions got inflamed was can translate into many billable lawyer hours and ultimately it did it was tough. We both wanted to make sure everything was cool for our family. We will always be family and we make it work. We still have fun reminiscent joke and we are both certain that rock and roll are indeed are light everyday give us new life. Russ beautiful math. That's the best part of injury. When when you get that understanding. former. Well she was saying the chosen is what made it tough and that's kind of what ended their relationship but now they're in a space where. They're making it work. So kids will always be quite even even if things don't work out between Y'all to raising. Those children kizer yeah yeah, absolutely. Absolutely. That's the that's the one thing I'm GonNa Miss.

"You have a have two kids and they argue and you really don't know what they argue about and they just saying, ooh. ooh. Jackson and. Exit. That's what it seem. Late last night seemed like my house at about seven o'clock at night when I'm trying to kiss asleep asked exactly what satellite challenging. Yeah Well, first of all trump and Joe Biden had to be wearing diapers last night because they went for an hour and a half street and nobody took P brick I took at least I took at least two but I just walked away saying to myself Man America's in trouble and I don't know how we got here like I just feel like American needs more options. I is a black person could not in good conscience beauty republican or Democrat on voting on November third when I'm voting my interest individuals and Last night, I wasn't impressed by either one of them but I knew that already I knew I wasn't impressed by either wanted to Marvin and I are also you know will not get personally invested in either one of those old white men to argue with my own people about and I. Truly honestly don't think that we need any more debates like the debates. The pointless because trump is not there to debate but these networks keep airing these debates because of ratings and there was nothing I saw last night that surprised me Joe Biden was who he was donald trump was who he was. The fact that people are saying trump's stooped to a new Loewe is mind boggling to me? He's been the limbo champ since he's been in no White House he can't wait for DJ as they how low can you go? This I don't know I, remember surprised that he didn't condemn white supremacy. He's a white supremacist. He's totally we've known this. Ever like I don't know what trump and watching the past four years. So yeah, I just was disappointed last night and embarrassed. I think we were all embarrassing four lines. Eight, hundred, five, eight, five, one, zero, five, one. Hello. WHO's this? Joiner from New York age order from Yoga from new. York. Long Island Okay Long Alan I let's talk about what did you So I I think if I had to give a winner, it will be trump simply because he got by doing exactly what he wanted him to do every time you're trying to talk you over distracting from what it was, and then instead of biting finish in the thought, he would always trying to dress the comments that trump just me distracting him from. Making the point and nobody looking at the fact that when the moderator asks trump, you condemn white supremacy ratio right now and he says, yeah, I would do Bible in the modernist thing. So do it so do it trump every day and he said, well, well, what's the name? What do you want me to say like he knew what he wanted to? Say. But he's still never wanted to condemn the primacy of fun when vitamin with about law enforcement he said that there are good cops out there and there are bad ones and the bad ones are the ones that need to justice, which is true. We adjust the fact that trump has repeatedly over and over again refused to condemn these permits scoops that. Continued to use his divisiveness and hatred to their motives and he continues to Jake, Sidetrack Biden and addressing the issue like we know he's GonNa say what? He's GonNa say stop addressing his foolishness and just needs to be judged. Why didn't you have to give that comet like Charlemagne say like you didn't have to the Doug Jab at all Bernie earn and He's saying finish your thought stop. Trump did that all night so bite him. So you don't think Donald Trump hats and make any valid points answer questions. You think he won because simply because he distracted. Joe Biden. He didn't have to make any point on the actual fact it was on then going back and forth I never. Is, it's like elementary like two kids and ten going back and forth. What do we really stuff in family shot what you did what what are you going to do? What's GONNA BE DIFFERENT? And the real questions were never entered and trump dot his way he was never forced to enter the real questions. You didn't even respect the moderator him in a moderate back in court. The matter you had to stop and say, Listen Your Party your team agreed to this watch follow what your team degree to yet they. They had to cut the mic off like you gotTa have just cut his Mike off so he can't talk and let's Get across but thank you brother eight, hundred, five, eight, five, one, zero, five, one.

Part Charlemagne and I hope you don't take this personally I know in the past you mentioned that you don't like Biden and I get it. That is your personal choice but I think in the Times that we're in right now he's always got in a chance of making a change in this. United States and I think every time he made a comment or anything he's made you've seen a negative as opposed to positive in it and it only feel I feel like it only fuels trump supporters to try to stay how much vitamin is not A. Good President you know for us right now and I don't think right now is the time for us to put by down. It's time for us to uplift him and to just you know showcase how much trump is not ideally the best president for us because it, it's not helping the situation I feel like every time by Tomato Karma it was like, well, he should said this but we didn't look at the bigger picture here as as much as trump never really answered any question he just went around it made his facial expressions and used different things are going on that he claimed that he did. me as a nurse. You know right now you know during the code process having co Co workers who passed away from Kobe now feeling like I have support from the president you know was hard on us and it was just like that was the time that we needed that support from someone to show. You know to let us know that we're out here risking our lives for people we don't know and but yet he knew about this pandemic possibly coming but did nothing about it and just constantly bypassed the number of people who pass away even healthcare workers or you know people interested well, it it is what it is. I mean, obviously. I respect. It respect your opinion and I hear you. But I have to tell you I will never be a soft shoe and asked me grow that goes along just to get along I. Can Critique Biden and still vote for him. I think that's what democracy is. Democracy is even if we think we know none of these candidates A. Perfect would even after we vote Biden in I'm still Be on his ass get some things done for us. Thank you. Call the Mama. I would agree that I do think that Joe Biden did make some good points last night though and I think that's how you win a debate and some people will say donald trump wine just because he was a distraction but he really didn't answer anything. So.

"For Corona virus according to Donald Trump two, hundred, thousand dead you said over seven million infected in the United States forty thousand people to a day are contracting covert in addition to that about between seven fifty, thousand people they're dying when he was presented with that number he said it is what it is or is it is because you or who you are. That's why it is. The president has no plan. He knew all the way back in February how serious this crisis was. Yeah, that was that was a good moment and he could nail trump even harder when when trump was talking about his rallies and saying nobody's ever you know nothing has happened is rallies. It's like you're harming cain literally died after attending one of your rallies one your support pig supporters. Believe, in Tosa, one of the rallies, a of a whole bunch of people got Corona virus. So yes, but you know and Joe Biden Day something I thought that was great last night because they were talking about the Economy Donald Trump was talking about wanting to open everything back up and saying how a Joe Biden. Cripple the economy and Joe. Biden said we cannot fix this economy until we fix this pandemic I can't remember exactly where for what he said, but that's basically the gist of what he's saying. That's true. They're not mutually exclusive. Those two things are interrelated right now and so I think that's important to note now there was a lot of back and forth it was Kinda hard to listen to at times. Here is some of the back and forth we're actually joe binding. Love a little bit of his cool last night. The fact is everything he's saying so far is simply lie I'm not here to call out his lies everybody knows he's a liar. I I WANNA. Make sure lasting get last night I am I. I WANNA make. Can you let them finish he doesn't know how to do that has. You pick it surprising guy the wrong night at the wrong time. Sanders. Shut Him Savelli is now manifesto. Mr Number two just lost the left. You agreed with Bernie Sanders on a plan. How shift -solutely exchange. Yeah Biden unnecessary shot at Bernie Sanders during that exchange to. Beat Bernie Sanders I. Don't know what that had to do anything. That's why trump. You just lost. You know what I mean. But. Is that Bernie Sanders plan. His plan because he had a different plan, it wasn't the same thing and that's what he kept trying. But he said, he said I beat Bernie Sanders which is true. You know what I mean but it was just like unnecessary shot especially when a lot of those. Those progressives on vocal Biden because they don't have no other option you know what I mean. Took to twitter last night and said Donald Trump is the worst president we've ever had show us your tax returns at Real Donald Trump and speaking tax returns that of course was another issue last night early on and here's Donald Trump saying that he did pay taxes and in fact, paid millions will you tell us how much you paid in federal income taxes in Twenty and sixteen twenty seven millions of dollars paid millions of. Dollars. Up those. This did and you'll get to. But let me you Chris let me just as. It was the tax laws. I don't WanNa pay tax before I came here as a private developer was a private business people like every other private person. Let's they're stupid. They go through the laws and that's what it is. That's right. That's the moment Joe Biden instead of just put. gave him a nice well-placed. He's fullest. Right, there in that moment that would have been tagged next to the tax return. Only paying seven fifty intact returns in the head life. All right. So Biden also said on twitter Donald Trump isn't a law and order president. He's a president who breaks the law and creates disorder under this president we become weaker sicker poorer more divided and more violent. You heard a lot out of president trump's mouth. Can you name one thing he said to actually make your life better and he said this this is Donald Trump's America and posted they're proud boys are a and this is a post from someone else the problems are ecstatic tonight about getting mentioned in the debate trump basically said to go F- them up. This makes me so happy rights one prominent proud boy and posted a bunch of different comments from the quote cowboys, the premises. Shocked to white supremacist not condemning white supremacy I. Wonder if you know in regard to Joe Biden not. I guess showing support of the police I wonder how? That's going to impact them because you could tell he didn't WanNa Feign Blythe would he? He didn't want to offend police as well as we kind of say nothing. So it looked kinda strange. I wonder how to. Impact. Ultimately. I, WANNA. Let's open up the phone lines. Let's talk to some people out there eight hundred. Real quick hunter. Was he was discharged from the military. There's an administrative discharge after he failed a drug test dishonorably. Honorable. A. Administrative discharge can cover several types of military discharges from honorable to General to other than honorable conditions, which we don't know what it is. Not Show he wasn't That's what he said. What are y'all lie both of them. All. Right. Let's open up the phone lines. Let's talk about it. Eight, hundred, five, eight, five, one, zero, five, one. Did you see debate last night? What did you think thoughts? Honest thoughts doesn't matter what you thought. If you thought it was three year old kids arguing whatever you thought. If you thought, there was a winner last thing we need more options. Let's talk about it's too late. It's no more options at this point eight two and no more jerk chicken jerk chicken. stewed chicken and. veggie. Patty. L. According to multiple reports they said, he did test positive for drug use, but that is not sufficient to receive a dishonorable discharge. So wasn't Dishonorable. He doesn't administrative discharge yesterday said I don't know. All right trump about an eight hundred, five, eight, five, one, zero, five, one. Let's talk about it. It's the breakfast locomotor the breakfast club. Topic. At the phone. Call Eight, hundred, five, eight, five, one, five, one to join into the discussion with the breakfast. Club. About. Morning everybody is Dj Envy Angela, Sholom Guy. We are the breakfast club. Now last night was the first debate donald trump versus Joe Biden, and we're just asking eight, hundred, five, eight, five, one, zero, five, one. What were your thoughts start? What you ye? What did you think I thought it was definitely a hot mess or they said show but I will say that Donald Trump was just To, listen to, he talks over people. He doesn't follow the format of what it was supposed to be two minutes each side and I do feel like Joe Biden and made some good points. I feel like Joe Biden could've went a lot harder and came out a lot stronger but I think he was just trying to be classier maybe a little too classy. But I understand that trying to get dragged down into the dirt and mud with Donald. Trump and I think I was even more energized to make sure we get him out of office. I didn't I didn't necessarily loved debate I don't think they told me what they're gonNa do to fix the country or what they're going to do to help my people. It just seemed like they were too old men argue with each other just store shots at each other all night long I, didn't like it like you said Donald Trump does not play by the rules he makes his own rules. Two minutes must do whatever I wanna do I gotTa talk over you. I'm GonNa do what I want to do and I just didn't like that I didn't respect it I. Think for now we're on. They have to have the option where the moderator has to turn off the MIC. So that way you can't even hear the other person talking Mike all give Joe Bodies, two minutes to turn the Mike back on because his skin to a point where you you you don't necessarily know what they're talking about. It was one point with Donald. Trump was just talking all over Joe Biden and Joe by calling him a clown and it just didn't make sense. It just seem like if.

Apologies to Jerusalem so sorry Toronto Apologies Toronto I'm sorry If you watched us, she watched the presidential debate last night just no, that's. That's not a reflection of who at least at least I am now.

Argue with each of all night long just being disrespected. Points I think he made some good points things guides round out with all of these other moments but I don't think he had a terrible performance at all. He. Definitely agree with you close and watch the Oldman arguing and didn't know they were president. You didn't know they will go for president they just look like to. Didn't like each other didn't. And they just wrote down everything eighty like about each other and I'm just GONNA attack with his ready I'm attack. Your stooping. was looking at the camera and talking to the people at home and try and. What it is that he was trying to say I think that because you can't talk to Donald Trump. I taught came off. Watching. But that came off his soul rehearsed that came off his so can came off. And another. Black, man, that is it just? Don't. Even when he mentioned black people just mentioned us like we're not people. It's I don't I don't know what it is. It just makes me feel funny every time they say and how you look at black people and black people and yeah, and then you should with black people and. Goodness gracious it it just it doesn't make a sound humi because we're not in their plans never have been probably never will be. A. Sister, truth to Nevada. So. Torn on I'm confused. So now wait. With this trash I just didn't let him in we. Over them with trash but you know we definitely vote on November third. We have to ask ourselves how we got to this point where these are only two options and I think the two party system in America is done. It's Like I just it's just not working for everybody anymore we need more options as the truth to the matter you're lying to yourself as you say otherwise. But We we we left who what we left with. So, yeah choice November third because I don't see how you can be black in good conscience be a member of the Republican Party ought to Democratic Party. You just pointed out a none of them talking us. At All It didn't seem like it at all I mean. Tricks I it just seemed like it attack faster. And make sure that I go out and vote I mean I already feel that way. But after last night I felt like this is a state of emergency. Yeah. We have definitely everybody has to go out and vote. We've been saying that for the last couple of months. But my my only thing is is and I hate to say this but this is when you look at something you'd be like you know what we really need change and when I mean It's like when you look in the music industry or you look a fashion or you look at this look at that and you see the people that run it and you see that starting to change you starting to see younger people starting to run fashion whether it's Virgil do a Louis Vuitton he's Kinda old, but he's younger than what just say what it is the old white men a played out bro. You. Old White men are played out. As. News so we can start talking about this debate with unroll white man is just the fact that they can't represent the world the nation. The country. Some humble. They don't. They don't. That's not a reflection. The US. All right. All right. All right. All right. All right. Well, let's get the show crack in. Front page news do we have to ask what we're talking about? All right we'll get into that next breakfast club. Morning, everybody Dj Envy Angela Ye Shall Yeesh Alameda God we are the breakfast club. Let's get some page news. PA where we starting this versus about last night. I get right into it. Let's talk about the debate last night and I will start with the mask usage and Donald trump tried to mask same Joe Biden. He didn't like the fact that it's Biden wears a mask all the time. Understand. If you look, I have a mess great here. Put a mass going to. Need it tonight as an example, everybody's had a test and you've had social distancing and all of the things that you have to but I wear when needed. I don't have. I don't wear masks like him every time you seem he's got a mesquite could be speaking to one hundred feet away from it. He shows up with the biggest mask I've ever seen. That was a moment where Joe Biden could nail donald trump but he didn't like when Donald Trump was talking about his rallies in the side of Israelis and saying Israelis have been safe. It's like brought Herman Cain died after leaving one of your rallies Jill Biden could nailed him in them. You didn't. Right in addition to that, he talked about and this was one of the biggest moments of last night when Donald Trump was asked to condemn white supremacy. Here's what happened. I would say almost everything I see is from the left-wing not from the right. Now, what are you? What are you signed up willing to do anything I? WanNa see What Sir to say what do you want to call them? Give me a name give me A. Proud. And Ripe Raw face stand black and stand by but I'll tell you what I'll tell you what somebody's got to do something about antiques and the left and t frozen idea not an organization got. Is Tonight FBI director it Would people shocked and surprised that a waste of premises wouldn't condemn white supremacy like what Donald trump watching for the last four years? That's who he is. He's a white supremacist. This really energize white supremacists, militia groups, last night, and after the debate, it was a huge win and if you look at the numbers and social media and they've been t shirts and everything already. So they're very excited. They got shot it out Donald Trump last night and they feel.

It destroyed what had happened. A narrative was developing about Whitlam that he was out of touch that his ministers were off the leash and his government was totally dysfunctional. Now that he was back he took care of the reconstruction if it but his next move did little to change the narrative because instead of staying at home and getting things under control he was itching to get back to his overseas trip.

"In the video. You just heard rob is pacing back and forth sweaty. He's not quite in the picture. He's talking in really fast. He's angry or at least really excited. It's hard to make out in the tape but rob starts off by saying I'm going to kill that fucking guy I'm telling you it's first degree murder. There are a couple of people off camera who can be heard clapping and encouraging and he says but when he's down I'll rip his throat. I'll poke his eyes out. I will fuck when he's dead. I will make sure that motherfucker is dead. I need ten minutes to make sure he's dead. ROB's response to this on the tape was made. Public Flick is that he was a well known wrestling fan and he had been impersonating Hulk Hogan kind of make sense by the way he was saying brother he certainly talking about combat might have been that but there was another video cheeks be around five months boma medium rare is up about about five months trying to tell me we're east high. They don't much money job in your eyes. Five of I swear to God awesome. It's the goal. This video was shot in a restaurant. Toronto called Steak Queen in Toronto's West End late at night rob is rambling incoherently again. I'm I'm not gonNA quote what he says because he's attempting to speak Jamaican Patois and I am not going to do that. Rob admitted that he'd had a little bit to drink amidst this frenzy over video after video rob went global he appeared on Jimmy. Kimmel live Kimmel had been covering the scandal nightly so head every other late night comedy show but it was Kimmel who scored the interview and so rob flew L. A. to make his appearance on March third twenty fourteen. He sat down on the couch and called himself an average hard working politician. He was in his usual ill-fitting black suit but this time he had decided to wear a bright red tie with a matching bright red pocket square. It looked nervous sweating but he stuck to the script and you give you phone number out to people and I imagine you probably be doing that the whole time man. She gave it to me already. And is that a good idea I mean. Can you get a lot of crank calls and not know what's happening. Never I give my number out. Because you're the boss. And when you say jump I say how high the taxpayers here want service. And I don't believe in going through all the bureaucrats call rob four guaranteed. Return your call uncle right to your front door disturbing for fourteen years. How high can you jump the now? You'd be surprised. How fast move I have to say? People seem very angry that I was having you on the show tonight people from Toronto on facebook on twitter. This is disgusting. Having our embarrassment of a mayor and your show is a slap to all Torontonians really disappointed. You're giving this abusive exploited the time of day. Jimmy a hope you remember that clown you're about to trot out is a very sick very bad man you know about rob Ford's words domestic abuse drunk driving racism homophobia and inability to tell the truth to right. Is there any validity to any of these things. I mean there's I don't know you got got a lot of money. They don't they don't talk. You may have set a record day. I guess they don't talk about the money I've saved How we straighten the city? I didn't save money. It's something you say and I have no idea. So that's I guess. I guess the city manager not manager Ford head walked out onto onto the set throwing Ford nation t shirts to the crowd and posing we sat down and Kimmel late into some vicious one liners. Are you homophobic not homophobic. You had more gay friends. You would not wear that tie a a lot. Let me get you some tissue. We're good bye DAB YOU MR mayor last week you dared the police chief in Toronto to arrest you now. This is after you told me you were coming on the show show and I was like no don't arrest him now But the video and so what happened to Kim Kardashian after her video camera. And I hate to do this to you but last last night you and given your with your friends and your brothers and stuff but this is from your dressing room. Last night you'll notice. The dessert plate has been devoured. The vegetables remain untouched. It was embarrassing to say the least and when Ford got back to Toronto Ronna there were more of his usual shenanigans. In fact the pace seem to increase Kevin Donovan. The investigative reporter at the Star was the first to get the scoop on this one. He'll tell us about an evening from March of two thousand fourteen. Two days after rob was on Jimmy. Kimmel I was contacted by and I apologize because I can't do. This is a really really deep source and the source told me that I needed to talk to personnel and and I went to talk to person X. and end over a period of a couple of weeks. I learned that there was an audio recording of this particular night. But what happened on that night. It is as close as four dollars on Jimmy. Kimmel as you said he'd just come back and he was driving around in his big black black SUV and he had a bunch of people with them. Those people included Rob's driver and fixer Sandra Lacey and a friend of his is from high school named Bruno Believe Him Oh and Ford likes to drunk dial and he was driving and and presumably hopefully using hands free but he was talking to people and and is calling people and saying all sorts of wild all things and this was all recorded on our recording. Which I was able to listen to? According to Kevin's reporting during one of those calls rob said nobody sticks up for people like I do you then goes on to use words that I won't repeat referring to Jewish wish black and Italian people then I'm the most racist guy around. I'm the Mayor of Toronto. He famously mostly set but then afterwards they go to mayor Ford's home and so now it's it's very late at night. He's high on drugs drunk not sure which or what combination and they go into his basement at this point the tape that Kevin was reporting from had ended and from here on. He's relying on interviews from people who were there and the Ford home that night. First of all he walks in the door with Bruno police. Emma and Bruno Has a bunch of a fast food that he's bought because they're all really hungry. Angry and for no apparent reason robbed suddenly hits Bruno in the face hard twice boom boom and the French fries and hamburgers go flying. They gathered up the food and went downstairs.

"I remember like the first one of the first ever events I was assigned at City Hall. there is a award ceremony for community safety and the mayor was scheduled to give out the awards and it seemed almost most Critical to us at the time like he still in the midst of this. You know the followed of this criminal investigation this police investigation and and I went to cover the events and was sort of standing in the back of the room and I had only just met some of my city hall colleagues and I said You know how does this work like this. He scrum after or you know. Sometimes a politician will you know make themselves available and you ask questions and they all serve laughed at me and we're kind of joking about hoping that I had worn like good running shoes Jews and said what do you mean. When the event finished he moved faster than I've seen any politician ever move up a side staircase and all of my press gallery colleagues went running after him and so I just went running after him too and I had my recorder out and we were trying to ask him questions about the investigation about election action about everything that had been going on? Jonathan Gold's be the reporter who had tracked rob on social media now at City Hall. I'm trying literally to keep up with the mayor. But what I remember so much about covering Rob Ford was the physical element of it. The actual amount of a physical running involved the amount of jostling and shoving and actually because there are so many fucking people trying to get into this tight space other than the mayor's office into space inside the mayor's office. You're trying to get a clear view of Rob Ford. Ideally hear what he says Even better ask a question but it It was physically intense in a way. You don't expect politico reporting to be like I said at the beginning of this podcast. This listen tire. Time was devastating for the city. Our mayor was a drug user and he wasn't stopping city council had devolved into reality television every every nightly newscast was led by whatever random thing that rob had said or done or reportedly said or reportedly done that day or even most days by video. Oh of him. Literally running away from the media and into his office Ford supporters and Ford haters again to move more fully into their respective camps city council then candidate is supposed to be the one level of government without partisanship. There was no question the council and the city were utterly divided. It was. It's tough but if you were watching from afar with no skin in the game and yeah the whole thing was hilarious. Aw Dude on FRAC excuse for smoking crack is he was drunk. The Mayor of Toronto Rob Ford isn't spotlight right now because this rumor that there's a video of him smoking crack but to be fair. There's not a lot to do in Toronto. Come on guys. Have I ever smoked crack. Yes but that was in. The past mayor was charged with being way too exciting for Canada. Talking track right now. Where are you getting this? This is the show from New York life as a late night. punchline wasn't easy for the people in City Hall who didn't Smoke Crack may began to look for ways to get rid of rob or at least to distance themselves from him. The most obvious sign of this was on rob staff which had by now al lost almost all of its original members counselors meanwhile began fleeing his executive committee some by choice and others because they spoke out about rubs CBS behavior. And he asked them to resign. Council's First Public Attempt to condemn rob was figurative. They turn their backs on him during a council session almost all of them it made for good visual and made a good point but it didn't actually do anything. Rob was very much in charge. They needed to figure out a way to get the city if not back on track than at least functioning despite its mayor. There's so many things that happen when a certain type of person who is uniquely uniquely unqualified for Public Office manages to get in. And you know when you you start to start to see just how resilient and or not resilient your democratic institutions are fats Jonathan goalby again what city councillors and the city at large quickly learned was. There wasn't a process in place for the city to remove a mare. Oh city council figured out how much they could do. They figured that they can take away the powers I think they were granted to the mayor by their own bylaws and they did that they removed as many as much of that as they possibly could and the excuse or partner with the deputy mayor For the time being but there are things like Rob Ford wanted to be wanted to cherish city council meeting. There was nothing anyone could do could stop him from doing that. He legally had the right to do that. And Council couldn't change that I mean thankfully gently didn't like to do that but there are legally representing the city In official events like there are certain things that are in law. That council couldn't change up. I guess we have a crack mayor now until the election. What a shit? Show what a should show show How can I get out of here? This is going to be bad for all of us that is councillor Joma havoc and he might not have agreed. Read with Ford politically on anything but as you might remember. He sat right near in council and he called him a friend and he played in a football pool with them every year but still he was one of the counselors leading the charge to strip rob of his powers for the good of the city so the person moved the motion was John. fill-in who sought not right beside me here then to over was where rob forties to send so John Fillion The was the one who moved the motion but the end the motion was the fruit of a lot of conversation on the second floor when we when we realized that regrettably that this is something that Ah to be done. City Council voted overwhelmingly in favor of motions that would reduce ROB's role in council to that of a figurehead. Thirty seven to five councillors voted to cut the mayor's budget and thirty six to six quoted to transfer many of Ford's deputies and much of his budget to deputy mayor Norm Kelly who would affect run the council and it had to be driven by that we are in trouble that was basic competency issue. It could not be seen to be the progressive side of Council ganging up on this guy during a a vulnerable moment and I think thankfully because of the people Who are more right of center saying yes? The moment had come that gave legitimacy into the process. It would be like today. The impeachment movement is purely in singularly in the United United States at Democrat Democratic Party movement. If half of the Republicans split from trump and say yes. This is the right thing to do. That's a very very different moment Then it does become one of a basic competency in office. That hasn't happened in the states but it did happen at At the at City Hall. And that's why. The motion carried the went forward. It was another wild day. I mean of so many wild days I remember the Wild Day. When and when city council stripped of his powers and basically declared war that Cynthia Mulligan again she was still on the Ford beat and on the day that council voted to strip the mayor of his powers? The Ford Brothers made it clear that they were not going down without a fight. It's is not an exaggeration to say that rob who'd already been behaving erratically. Simply lost it in the face of united opposition from council including including many counselors that he'd normally count among his friends and allies rob's brother Doug who'd made himself known as Rob's heavy and his confidante once again came to his defense as rob faced accusations of substance abuse impacting his ability to govern. Doug called out another counselor Paul Ainslie. Who had recently been stopped by the police and given a warning for impaired driving and what happened next was basically the wildest seen in the history of Toronto City Council the process of this council? If there's a code of conduct should be going through the right process process. It shouldn't be happening with with with getting to my question. Thank you okay counsel as you got your own issues cast too much such as Doug was saying what you just heard rob was leaning back in his chair and he was pantomime driving drunk to about the proper offer. Code of conduct counselor matters with respect to code of conduct so therefore please stop disrupting the long onto one of the accountability officers probably and it got worse from there. I will let Cynthia tell the rest of the story. There were hecklers. There's in the audience and Doug and the Security Guard and rob were walking around the chamber and and one of them was taking pictures of the people who were protesting with the camera and people got really angry because they felt that that was an an incendiary move and raw for some reason ran across the chamber. I think he was running to help. Doug he thought he thought they were on opposite sides and and it did feel like they were inciting the protesters and rob all of a sudden started to runs towards Doug and literally took out Pamuk on and and knocked her flying kind of Qatar but she really was was hit quite hard and then he kept kept going and she said after I remember she for weeks that her neck was hurt that she got whiplash and it was. It was quite painful..

"I haven't I can't comment on the video that I haven't seen you guys have asked me a question so you asked me. You asked me a question back in May and you can repeat that question back a name that can use you. You ask a couple questions. What were those questions? Do you smoke crack cocaine exactly. Yes I have looked at cracker barrel do I am. I know when I've I tried it. call one of my drunken stupor is probably approximately about a year ago. I answered your question. You asked the question properly landry. Yes I've made mistakes. I've made mistakes. I all I can do now. Is Apologizing move on. I don't know what our because H can i. Just all I can say is a made mistakes. That's an you guys kept referring to alcohol a COUPLA isolated incidents there's been times when I've been in a drunken stupor that's why I wanna see the tape. I want everyone one in the city. The state this is the gravy train. I'm Jordan Heath Rally state that I was in. I don't even remember after some of the stuff that you guys have been in. That's a problem so I want us. I got five days ago now. Toronto's chief of police had confirmed that his investigators had in their possession a video that in the chiefs words up here to to be those images which were previously reported in the press and then Rob Ford stood in front of a gaggle of media and he said what you just heard heard and then things got even weirder the last time we talked. I walked you through the police. Investigation that eventually produced host the video of Rob Ford Smoking crack that the mayor had denied existed. That investigation was one of the darkest moments in the city's history. Toronto's top politician was living a double life. He was spending his evenings with gang members. He was taking hard drugs and the police were watching and and listening to him as he did it to those at the heart of the investigation it was an awful time to those in the inner circle at City Hall. These were some of the most stressful periods of their entire lives to the vast majority of just citizens in Toronto. It was a total shit. Show every day something else happened every day. Got Worse but to everyone else around the world look it was just not it was insane and it was hilarious. All the dark stuff at the heart of this story that didn't resonate because to everyone who was not impacted by it. It was a farse. Toronto was known by the world at large and still is sometimes when you travel as the place with the crack mayor a punchline and you can't blame people for that. It was a dark comedy and everybody was playing it for laughs. I was there the moment he said yes. I have smoked crack McCain. That's Cynthia Mulligan a reporter at City News in Toronto and she was there when while she told you this marked the end of act. One one of the Rob Ford Scandal and the beginning of Act to rob showed up to work that day in a black suit and with a memorable multi which featured the logos of all thirty two. NFL teams may step off of an elevator. In front of the press. The elevator the infamous elevator. You know it had its own twitter account if you walk through the front doors of Toronto City Hall You Find Yourself. In a wide open circular space. There are staircases and various. His Hallway is going off to all sides but smack ahead of you in the center of everything is an elevator Colin. This is the elevator. It's the one that the Mayor Talk Chuck to get to his office. It's one that's supposed to only be used by the mayor and Toronto Councillors. Bad Elevator became a character in the story and you would watch which floors the elevator was starting on because you knew if it was coming from the ground floor. It probably wasn't him so you you would. You would watch to see if it was coming from the basement where it was coming from and so many times we'd Spring to attention. Oh if security started coming you kinda figured figured that's a sign because they know he's coming so they're there to manage but sometimes you know we'd get a false alarm and the doors would open. Nobody would be there and we're like Aw or other times some poured you know resident. Would you know some old lady would get off. And she'd see us all at all. The cameras are honor and the lights and she'd be horrified and it became a little bit of a private joke for weary journalists who were looking to amuse themselves at times. There was no oh glamour and covering Rob Ford. The days were long and hard. 'cause you're sitting on the ground if you're lucky to eat you're eating your your lunch on the ground as you're sitting by that elevator just waiting to see what was going to happen and it was the unpredictability right because you never knew if he got off that elevator if he was going to drop drops some bombshell or if he was just going to walk right on by. You didn't know they always kept you guessing. I don't know what triggered it that day. Where where he was finally just saying I guess he was just tired of it? When it became clear that yes Toronto really did have a crack smoking mayor Amir who had admitted it? After months of denial then all hell broke loose and every major media outlet in the world came calling. They parked their trucks. One by one down the street and they swarmed into City Hall City Hall is a very strange strange and futuristic looking building its previous claim to global fame. was they set pace as a foreign planet in episode of Star Trek. Now it's image. Image was leading International Cable News. It was like the world had exploded. City Hall was just on edge absolute loot edge and and people were waiting to see how he was going to respond it was a never ending whirlwind of chaos. I would say say and amped up to circus levels the last FEMA. The Toronto political thing has been dominated plus shocking claims about the city's Mayor Rob Ford admitted he was not perfect but refused to step down. Garish factors where you got up around thereof Ford's don't nobody meteor for McCain cupboards cal. Could you have to connect at the auto foldable Middle Dot com even after he admitted to using crack Rob ped- really strong support and he leaned into it. He would hit his supporters against the media. For instance he would often make a point of chatting with them and taking taking pictures of them and then brushing past reporters with questions just a week after he gave that press conference and admitted that he'd tried it robs set up a table in City Hall. Selling Robbie Bobby's which were bobbleheads in his likeness hundreds of people lined up to get one. How long long did you wait for that to three hours and hours worth away? Are you afford fan. I am I'm I support him. Fully Rob didn't talk much to the press will all this was going on. And when he did he did not help his case one day for instance court documents had been released outlining concerns of a bunch of staffers his office. Remember Ford's wild night right on Saint Patrick's Day there were a few nights like that and the court records detailed all of this behavior including some offensive remarks to female colleagues six and after those remarks reported rob brought his wife to a scrum with reporters at City Hall and he shocked wrote Okay. So that's all I have to say for now and the next thing. I WANNA call Tanya in Hamilton and tell them that we're going to have to spank their little tiger cats phone. The last thing was Olivia gone back. It says that I wanted to eat her pussy lane gone back. I've never said that in my life tour I would never do that. I'm happily married. I've got more than enough to eat at home. They Cynthia Mulligan was always always in the middle of those impromptu. scrums and since they were basically the only time that rob ever talk to the press every member of the press crammed into them and created needed some dangerous situations instead of going out the back door. He decided to try and Ram through the media. And it could've been avoided. All he had to do was walk out the back door but it was so dense that the media had nowhere to go and the security was shoving adding people and one of the security guards actually shoved my cameraman so hard that he flipped over backwards over a couch. It was it needed. Crowd Control Troll. It was so bad at one point in an attempt to escape the scrub rob walked right into camera. Excuse me his took fully grace. It's good to speak. And so I sort of joined the circus at City Hall in the middle of all of this Jennifer Pagliara went from being a crime reporter for the Toronto Star to it City Hall reporter and if there was anyone who who had the background on the guy she'd be covering it was the reporter who worked on project brazen two but even Jennifer wasn't ready for the mass us. That was waiting at City Hall..

We had no problem with that the right right. What I do is difference that white woman says she is going to Africa hope. I don't get aids or something like that. I think no no and the reason why I'm bringing that up is because people do this thing where if like Haggas name when it was as white women Cornhole Jar. Yeah I was party right yeah.

She said I apologize to put Netgirl Carolina blast. I understand I have a large following that there were so many variables that could've put her in danger. I'm really be more responsible with the use of my social media and check my petty and my pride Friday door phase so I'm I'm. I think that's the right thing to do agree. I don't think I think I have empathy not and humanity for the fact that you know for the fact that you know. She probably tweeted that share angry hungry Nigga rob you suppose maze. Possibly you know if if that's even what happened in China things you could have got a flat tire. She got she got robbed. So you know you're putting this person's fakes out. There and you are jumping to collusion collusion's and you could have they do have a situation in like for example. I ordered door dash one time and it was Taco Bell and when a guy here nothing the bag was right. Nothing and I complained you know through the APP like Yo. This shit is not right and there was like here's a credit and you know what good enough now a lot of people you know they. I think they get used to the rage that they won't impossible fix right away like I want to touch that fire though I won't I won't I'll just want my money back on descend. That's right another time. We order something former delivery thing and like the salad they brought me was was fucked up and not the right. It didn't put it in the San for the salad or something like that and I'm mad because you know hey. We just waited an hour for the shake hours as long as you do it that way and you know. I just put it in the APP. Hey I didn't get my shit and and they actually have it in the APP set up. What did you not ah I didn't get this this and this okay. We will credit you this much. Mac and we got a problem with that. Email us and let us know we can help you further. I really and I bet you. She thinks it now but just wait yeah and I and my thing is that I allow people to be human and understand Internet. It does not so that's why I thought what she said was fucking funny because I was like Oh she's angry. It was funny because we all been there. That's what's sad is that we can't even have at that moment or like. That is pretty funny because we all experienced. It can't even have that right and things change for you but people always forget. These people are talking people. They're not correct. She's not Liz oh the celebrity with a PR team and a publicist twenty four seven sees Liz. Oh the fucking person who didn't get Cassandras for a second you fuck this. Did they steal much shit. You know it makes you crazy when these new apps because you're you're looking at a map and I'm just like that's not the way to get my sandwich to meet. What are you going. Why are you going. Are you house. Pitch is this I like you. That's you snapchat it to me and notice. Nigga is not eating like that's how that's how how grant hey we've all been there and we would allow a little bit of like people ain't perfect people make mistakes people you know people's communication is always on the PC level of whatever there's an understanding even with Shane Gillis. Do I remember when I saw that clip. I was like that wasn't even in a joke and it doesn't even seem like He. This is what his shows about now have a listening to show so maybe. Dow I highly doubt but maybe he is some all right white goddess just somehow maybe I doubt it down to my guess is he ended up now. He will have if he got too much pride to me. He fucked up there. I mean do for peace. Only you know but but in real tall he could've just said I fucked up man. I A lot of things will stay. I I get it. I would have been over it because like okay. I can understand fucking up. I do a podcast every day. I fuck up all the time. You know you go back. You look at something how could could've said better or made this joke fly. If I would have thought about the joke I had you know shit happened right is one of those things where I do agree with her are and I do think you know to apologize but just the proper thing to do but I do agree if she probably would have sat down and thought about it. She wouldn't even have done that yeah so so Lizard Guy got flamed up initially.
