Press Photos of Hamas Terror Raise Ethical Questions
"Was it coordinated with Hamas? Did the respectable wire services which publish their photos approve of their presence inside enemy territory, together with the terrorist infiltrators? Did the photojournalists who freelance for other media like CNN? CNN's always there on the wrong side. And the New York Times, always there on the wrong side. Did they notify these outlets? Judging from the pictures of breaching, kidnapping and storming of Israeli kibbutz, it seems like the has border been breached not only physically but also journalistically. Four names appear on these photo credits from the Israel Gaza border area on October 7th. You ready MSNBC? The Daily Beast? Huffington Post? Mediaite? Hassan Yossef Mossad, Ali Mamand and Hatim Ali. Eslaya, a freelancer who also works for CNN, crossed into Israel, took photos of a burning Israeli tank, then captured infiltrators entering the kibbutz kafar on October 7th. Honest reporting has obtained screenshots of Eslaya's now -removed tweets on X, in which he documented himself standing in front of the Israeli tank. He didn't wear a press vest or a helmet, and the Arabic caption of his tweet read, Live from inside Gaza Strip settlements. Shortly after the publication of this article, we were alerted to footage of Hassan Elisha next to the Israeli tank. In addition, a photo has surfaced for showing him with Hamas leader and mastermind of October 7 massacre, Yahya Yabba Dabba Doo, Senwar. In this footage, they have it all there, Elisha, after he crossed into Israel and took photos of a burning tank. He then captured infiltrators and in the area. Hassan, also who also works for the New York Times, he was there as well, just in time to set foot in Israeli territory and take more tank pictures. Ali Mahmoud and Hatem Ali were positioned to get photos of the horrific abductions of Israelis in Gaza. Mahmoud captured the pickup truck the carrying body of German -Israeli Shani Lauk and Ali got several shots of abductees being kidnapped into the strip. Interestingly, the names of photographers, the which appear on other sources, have been removed from some of the photos on AP's database. You know the media is so corrupt. Perhaps someone at the agency realized posed it serious questions regarding their journalistic ethics. So the serious question is this. You went in
Media Matters Accuses Levin of Anti-Semitism Over Wolf Blitzer Comment
"To stop. Go. I want you to listen to Wolf Blitzer, to Hakeem Jeffries on CNN yesterday. Wolf Blitzer, as I understand it, his parents weren't victims in one way or another, the Holocaust, but certainly his family comes out of that Media matters says, the daily beast and media regurgitate. Let me explain what he suggests. Antisemitism. Start at the top again, Mr. Producer. Go. I want you to listen to Wolf Blitzer. To Hakeem Jeffries on CNN yesterday. Wolf Blitzer, as I understand it, his parents weren't victims in one way another, or the Holocaust, but certainly his family comes out of that background, but you wouldn't know it. So what does that mean? Let's start at the beginning. His parents, they say, weren't victims in one way or another. Let's stop for a second. When I take a breath, when I'm saying something and I'm passionate, I take a breath. Now, you can hear that they say weren't if you're really listening and you want it to say weren't and so forth. You hear can it to say weren't. And we're saying it. So we've played it. We've got the audio. You can twist it to say weren't, but obviously, why would I say his parents weren't in one way or another victims in the Holocaust? How can that even be logical? Why

"Lots of channels. Nothing to watch. Especially if you're searching for the truth. It's time to interrupt your regularly scheduled programs with something actually worth watching. Salem News Channel. Straightforward, unfiltered, with in -depth insight and analysis from the greatest collection of conservative minds. Like Hugh Hewitt, Mike Gallagher, Sebastian Gorka, and more. Find truth. Watch 24 -7 on SNC .TV and on Local Now, Channel 525. The Mike Gallagher Show. For what purpose does a gentleman from Louisiana seek recognition? Mr. Speaker. That is a nice ring to it, by the way. Mr. Speaker, I offer a privileged resolution to notify the Senate of the election of Mike Johnson as Speaker of the House of Representatives and ask for its immediate consideration. In the ReliefFactor .com studios, here's Mike. I saw a TV commercial last night. Remember that kid on that funny TV show, was it Malcolm in the Middle? Wasn't his name Frankie something? Isn't Frankie Muniz or Muniz? And he's doing a commercial for Hair Club for Men. He's like a race car driver now. I guess he races cars. And I just saw about 15 seconds of it. And evidently, he's a Hair Club for Men. You know, of all the things I'm trying to get my life together in my 60s, I've lost a bunch of weight. I'm trying to work out every day. I'm on the bike. I'm doing my thing. I'm not an attractive person. I don't claim to be. If you watch me on Sale & News Channel, you can confirm. I'm not really a very handsome guy. I don't think I would ever be mistaken for a model. But I would love to lose the bald spot. I hate the bald spot. Years ago, I was going up the stairs and Bonnie Simmons was a secretary, was an assistant in our Salem, Dallas offices. And she was up on the balcony. She looked down at me and she said, look at that. She was British. Look at that bald spot. You look like Friar Tuck. And then I insulted her very badly because I was hurt. I would love to get rid of the bald spot. I don't think you can get rid of a bald spot. You can work on thinning hair. I don't think the bald spot, I don't think there's much they can do back there. But I wonder if, I mean, plugs and all that, that would be rough. Is that what Hair Club is? Or hair growth? Tracy, see if you can find out what Frankie is doing. And I appreciate the text message I just got from Minnesota. I listen to you on the radio and you sound like a handsome devil. That's true. On radio, I'm very handsome. On TV, I'm just a schlubby looking guy. You know who I look like? I don't know why I'm in such a good mood. You know who I look like in person and this is not something to brag about? The late, great Mel Torme. Now, he was amazing. He was a great talent, right? Wrote, you know, chestnuts, roasting, but he looked kind of like a frog. And that's who I look like. If you don't believe me, Google Mel Torme and then look at a picture of me and embarrassingly, that's who I most look like. That's the celebrity I look the most like, Mel Torme. But anyway, if I could get rid of this bald spot somehow, maybe I could – I'm not going to wear a toupee, never going to dye my hair, a lot of gray, getting old and not for sissies. Hey, being in the good mood I'm in, I'm going to go out on a limb and I'm going to say something that's probably going to get me in trouble, particularly with Ron DeSantis supporters. But I'm going to say it anyway. I think Nikki Haley is going to surpass Ron DeSantis. I think Governor Nikki Haley is the one to watch. She is surging. She's now ahead of DeSantis in New Hampshire. She's now tied for second with DeSantis in Iowa. I think Nikki Haley is carving out a lane that might just give her the path to second place. Now, I don't know that anybody is going to overtake President Trump. But then again, you never know what's going to happen with anything. You never know what's going to happen with anybody or anything. And Nikki Haley, The Daily Beast, Matt Lewis over The Daily Beast had an analysis. Here's why Nikki Haley is gaining in the polls and Ron DeSantis is not. She's now tied with DeSantis for second in Iowa according to a new Des Moines Register NBC News MediaCom Iowa poll. More importantly, the trend lines show DeSantis down three points and Haley up 10 points since August. What's more, Haley has already surpassed DeSantis in New Hampshire. She's now in second place in the first in the nation primary. She is emerging as the alternative to Donald Trump, at least in part because she's more likable than DeSantis. Now, that's according to The Daily Beast. I don't know, is she more likable than – frankly, the emerging narrative is that anybody is more likable than Ron DeSantis. I don't think of Ron DeSantis as likable or unlikable. He's kind of a policy guy. He's smart. He's effective. He's accomplished. He's really – he's good. There's nothing wrong with Ron DeSantis except he's not Donald Trump. But a lot of people are convinced that Ron DeSantis is still the alternative. I don't know. I don't know the answer to this. I don't know. But The Daily Beast's Matt Lewis writes that Nikki Haley has not made the mistake that Ron DeSantis made. He asserts that Ron DeSantis chose a lane that was already taken. Instead of assembling a coalition of Reagan conservatives who never liked Trump and former Trumpers who are ready to move on, Ron DeSantis chose to ignore or offend the former and focus on attracting current Trumpers who have no interest in quitting the Donald. She chose a lane that went after Trump pretty rigidly. She criticized Trump for adding $8 trillion to our debt. She called him the most disliked politician in America. And Matt Lewis' analysis is her strategy worked. As recently as this spring, Ron DeSantis looked like the best positioned Republican to take on Trump. Haley seemed as unlikely to catch fire as Mike Pence who, as we know, dropped out of the race this past weekend. Today, he writes, Haley is the one to watch while Ron DeSantis' star seems to be fading. Do you agree with that? Now, the team gave me a clip that went viral. Ron DeSantis went on a very popular podcast with a guy named Patrick Bet -David, this PBD podcast. And it's getting a lot of traction. It's a very popular podcast. I hear a lot of people say that they're engaging in this podcast that this guy does. And it's one of those teams, I don't know, it's called the PBD podcast. And the guy's name is Patrick Bet -David. And people took this clip and ran with it and said, this Patrick Bet -David has single -handedly ended Ron DeSantis' candidacy. Now, that's hyperbolic and that's exaggeration to be sure. But it is fair to, and I was wondering about this. I really debated this. Driving into work this morning, I thought, should I play this clip or not? I don't want to embarrass Ron DeSantis. I don't want to attack him. I'm not anti -DeSantis. I'm not anti -Republican. We desperately need to defeat the Democrats in 2024. I'm convinced the Democrat we're going to have to beat is Gavin Newsom. Incidentally, did you see Newsom over in China? What the heck's the California governor doing kissing up to Xi in China? Well, he wants to run for president. He thinks he's going to be the Democrat nominee. And I believe he very well could be. Now, I'm going to play this clip for you against my better judgment. Tracy's convincing me we should play it just so people can hear what people are talking about on social media. DeSantis is terribly embarrassed, I'm sure, by this. And he is very rigid in controlling his media interviews. Trust me, I've got some personal experience in that field. Here's Governor DeSantis on this very popular podcast that has already been viewed now millions and millions of times. DeSantis wears cowboy boots a lot. And his critics make fun of his penchant for cowboy boots. And they suggest that the reason he's wearing boots is that he's got lifts in them because he's short. So this guy, this Patrick Bet -David goes right at him on the issue of cowboy boots. Again, not a very comfortable place for Governor DeSantis to be. I thought I'd share it with you anyway. I know you were on, what do you call it? What was it? Bill Maher. And Bill Maher talked about the boots. I've seen you walk with these boots. Go ahead and play this clip. This on TikTok went viral. It doesn't have a million views. It doesn't have, you know, 10 million views. This thing's got 1 .2 million likes. And some people are wondering... They've not shown this to you. Okay, what they're trying to say with this is that in your boots, you have heels. No, no, no. Those are just standard off the rack, Lucchese. How tall are you Governor? 5 '11. Okay. Why don't you wear tennis shoes and dress shoes? I do wear tennis shoes when I work out. Okay, I got a gift for you. I'd love for you to wear, okay, I shop at Ferragamo. I don't accept gifts. I can't accept it. I'm sorry. I mean, it was just a really awkward, cringey moment. Governor DeSantis has a look on his face like, how did I get myself in this position? And it probably didn't do him any favors to go on the PBD podcast because that guy clearly just wanted to embarrass Ron DeSantis. And I just keep wondering about people like Trump. I don't know that Trump would ever put himself in that position. He'd go right back at the guy and attack him. That's not who DeSantis is. DeSantis is a very serious guy. And I suppose the narrative that has emerged is that Governor DeSantis isn't particularly likable. And if you believe this Daily Beast analysis by Matt Davis, Nikki Haley is. She is more likable. Now, a lot of text messages coming in already on the MyPillow text line and I want to open up our phone lines. The PHD weight loss phone number is 800 -655 -MIKE. And I want you to give me your thoughts about Nikki Haley getting the momentum she's getting. Do you agree with me that she's the one to watch right now? Here's a text from Maryland. Mike, I hope you and your audience does a deep dive into this before anyone dares to support Nikki Haley. The last thing we need is another globalist in the White House. South Carolina from the Upstate. Mike, the problem with Ron DeSantis is his establishment Republican donors and their endorsement. And finally, from Florida, from Orlando, Nikki Haley wants to bring Palestinians here. She's a neocon supreme. She comes off as bitchy, too. Bitchy. Hmm. Does she? What do you think? 800 -655 -MIKE. That last debate, I mean, she got real shrill. She went nuts on Vivek Ramaswamy. And I thought, if anybody thinks she's likable, think again. But again, I hate to criticize her. She might be the nominee. Let's find out. 1 -800 -655 -MIKE. Give me your take on Nikki Haley surging and on Ron DeSantis fading. Is she the one to watch?

Join host Graham Klass as he speaks with the experts behind the technological advancements that are powering a brighter and more accessible future for everyone. Listen to Technically Speaking, an Intel podcast, on the iHeartRadio app, Apple Podcasts, or Hey, and welcome to the Short Stuff. I'm Josh, and there's Chuck and Jerry's here, and we're all jacked up because Halloween's coming and we've been eating candy for six weeks straight. Short Stuff. And things are getting spoopy in here. Spoopy? Spoopy, it's a word. It means not quite spooky, a lighthearted version of spooky. Is that like your own word? No, it's a real thing. You can look it up and we'll wait. Okay, hold on a second. Yep, your story checks out. It's a real word. All right. Well, let's talk about bedsheet ghosts then because I picked this one out when I was looking for something spoopy and I just, I kind of had a bit of nostalgia for the old school bedsheet ghosts and I was like, oh, where in the world did that come from? Who started doing that? Because it's a thing. You see people still do it as a cut real costume occasionally, whether or not you don't have the money to scrape up for some expensive costume or if you're just lazy. Either way, it's great. And it's also been in a gazillion pieces of pop culture like Beetlejuice and Scooby Doo and Charlie Brown, all kinds of stuff. Our friend Toby produced a movie that it featured in recently, A Ghost Story. I still haven't seen that. I got to see it. It's interesting. It is art house. It's very art house. Like, there's a lengthy scene where Rooney Mara just sits there and eats pie quietly in her kitchen. Like, that's the scene. It's really interesting. But it's cool. It's a cool concept. But the ghost is just wearing a bedsheet the whole time. Yeah, it's iconic. Exactly. I think that's the point. And I never stopped to question that. I think that was a great question that you had in your head. And it's really, I love things where you just stop and think, where did this come from? And there's a definitive answer that makes complete sense. And this happens to be one of those things. Yeah, I love those. So we dug into Salon .com, Tuft & Needle .com, and The Daily Beast. And everyone's story is the same. So it has to be true. But it comes from the fact that back in olden days, and specifically, I mean, we can go back to the time of Jesus, if you'd like to. But specifically, forward a bit to 17th century Britain, when people would wrap their deceased loved ones in white sheets, burial shrouds, to bury them. They used to do that, you know, just routinely back in ancient times. But then as we got a little more modern and coffins came around, if you had money, you could still go with a coffin. But if you didn't, you were still using that linen sheet probably. Yeah, and it's actually come full circle again, because one of the hallmarks of a green burial is using a burial shroud instead of a coffin. That's right. So a burial shroud is associated with dead people. And if a dead person returned from the grave, i .e. a ghost, you would think that they're probably still wearing their burial shroud or the bedsheet that they were buried in. And that, that is how bedsheets became synonymous with ghosts. Yeah, and we could stop there. This could be the shortest short stuff. Yeah, but it gets even more interesting if you ask me. It does, because all these great websites found some pretty cool stories to tie into this. And this is something I never knew. It was so synonymous with spooking people that thieves in London, and dare I say, go to England, greater would wear this stuff sometimes. I read some sites that said they would wear it just to scare people sometimes, and rob them on the street. And I also saw sometimes they would scare them from their home, so they could then just be like, all right, we got the place to ourselves. Let's rob it. Either way, I mean, don't you deserve to be robbed if a ghost scares you? Maybe they were just like, oh God, a robber. And that's really why they were running out, not that they thought it was a ghost. Sure. And he's wearing a sheet, so he must be dangerous. So clearly by this time, sheets and ghosts were fully in the mind of the pop culture, I guess, right? Yeah. The thing is, is at this time, around this time, in the early 1800s, like I think 1805 maybe, there is a very famous case of a person being mistaken for a bedsheet wearing ghost who paid with their life basically for walking around wearing a white outfit and refusing to wear anything but that.
A highlight from Shouting Down Charlie
"What am I oh yes last night I was speaking I was actually having a dialogue with Dr. Simone Gold frontline doctors for the Children's Defense Fund or no no it's the Children's Health Defense sorry that is a Robert F Kennedy Jr.'s group and I'm just offering this in passing in case you're ever challenged. If you say that truth is not a left -wing value, it is a liberal value, and it is a conservative value, but it is not a left -wing value, it never has been. Truth does not matter to the left. It matters to liberals, not all but many, and to conservatives, not all but many. At least it's a value in those two groups. So, this I found to be very effective. If the left believed in truth, would they say, men menstruate? That is, I think, the most powerful example you could offer, that truth is a joke, is a farce, is an impediment to leftism. That's it. Just give that example. If you do not say, men menstruate, you are considered by the left to be a hater, a bigot, and anti -science. But every single one of you listening knows it is an enormous lie, men do not menstruate. It is a gigantic… You can't say anything. If you said the earth is flat, it would be equivalent and probably truer because the land you are on now, the floor you are on now, is flat. There are vast numbers of places on earth where the earth is flat, but there is no place on earth where a man menstruates. If your child comes home and says, men give birth, or men menstruate, you know that they have been poisoned to the extent that they regard truth as a farce. It is an irrelevant question. Is it true, irrelevant? Just like, was it irrelevant that it was a lie that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia? It was a lie. It was as enormous as men menstruate. And they got Pulitzer Prizes at the Washington Post and the New York Times for perpetuating that lie, which the Columbia Journalism Review, Columbia is about as woke as you can get, but for some reason, God bless them, Columbia Journalism Review actually was committed to truth and said it wasn't true. It was a terrible time for American journalism. A terrible time for American journalism started very early. The New York Times reporting that there was no famine in Ukraine in 1932. Corrupt, despicable Walter Duranty was basically bribed with room and board and women by Stalin to report lies on behalf of the Soviet government. The New York Times never returned that prize. The Pulitzer Prizes never announced that they have rescinded it. Now they will say, well, it wasn't given for that, but I find that to be as farcical as the original reporting. Charlie Kirk went to Northern Arizona University and the reception is very scary. It is scary. We have young people who have been trained to be like the Soviet Youth League, come some old, brainwashed drones of evil. Well, Charlie Kirk went to speak and they were screaming, F .U., of course, they said the word fascist. Charlie Kirk drowned out by protesters on Arizona college visit, I'll be with Charlie at Arizona State University next week. Next week, if you have a seventh cousin who attends ASU, have them come to our speeches. Next Wednesday night, that's a week from today in Phoenix, Charlie Kirk laughs his mob of smelly overweight. Okay, I'm not going to read that, that's a tweet, we don't need it. F .U. fascist, you fascist. The screaming, I tell you, the screaming, why don't right wing students scream and curse at left wing speakers? Even they when constituted half the campus or even a majority of the campus, did they ever do this? I'm asking a question, they may have, I'm simply not aware of it. It's like, do any adult children who are Republican refuse to speak to a parent because the parent voted Democrat? You certainly have left wing children who don't speak to a parent because the parent voted for a Republican, but it doesn't work in both directions, does it? So again, we will be there next week. Charlie sent me a very long report on this from Mediaite, it's longer than the one from Daily Beast.
Liberal Media Misrepresenting Minnesota's Economic and Crime Status
"Before the break we were talking about this praise that liberal journalists across the country are giving Minnesota and its governor Tim walls for the strength of our economy despite having liberal proposals and John field it was an economist, a debunked that. The other one John is crime NBC News says that we've maintaining low crime rates. And this is wonderful. The Daily Beast in promoting governor Tim walls as a presidential candidate says he reacted with a veteran NCO's doggedness after Minnesota cops killed George Floyd in May 2020, which couldn't be farther from the truth. In fact, Tim walls froze up didn't act, waited what three days or four days before finally calling out the National Guard and in the meantime throwing the mayor of Minneapolis under the bus. It was a pathetic performance. But John, what about the broader the broader issue of cry? What's the fact when it comes to crime in recent years in Minnesota? Well, it's absolutely true that we are still a state with violent crime rates are below that in other states and that nationally. But if you look at the trends, the gap is narrowing and not in our favor. And we are actually in terms of some property crimes now above the national average, which is the first time on record that that's been the case.
AOC Slams CNN Over Trump Town Hall
"Check out headlines from the left. Look at these headlines. Daily Beast, CNN failed America with its train wreck of a Trump town hall. Rolling Stone, effing disgrace, CNN gifts Trump, a prime time campaign rally. How about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez holy mole to see her? She went on TV last night, she was furious. They weren't even going to talk about it. In fact, she said that on MSNBC because I know you weren't going to talk about here's AOC last night whining about the town hall. You know, I know you said earlier that you will not comment on the platforming of such atrocious disinformation, but I would. I think it was a profoundly irresponsible decision. I don't think that it would, I would be doing my job if I did not say that. And what we saw tonight was a series of extremely irresponsible decisions that put a sexual abuse victim at risk that put that person at risk in front of a national audience and I could not have disagreed with it more. It was shameful. Shameful, shame CNN, shame. And like I always say, give credit where credit is due, CNN didn't have to do it.
Trump Will Have 'No Choice but to Comply' With Booking Process
"It seems that the Trump hating world is very excited about the prospect of Donald Trump not being in control today. He's going to have to be not free to go anywhere. He will be accompanied by his Secret Service detail. He will be given no choice, writes The Daily Beast, but to comply as the investigator takes one of his fingers and rolls it on the surface of the reader. Just as cops did on an ink pad in earlier times, a screen will show Trump's print even as it is being read. What is not changed and what is universal to every arrest is the necessity for the suspect to turn over complete control to the arresting officer. Has it dawned on you that this is happening during holy week? Has that crossed your mind? It's hard not to make that connection, isn't it? This is a remarkable a remarkable chapter in America's history. And we are all heavy hearted. If you have an ounce of decency or patriotism or love of country, your heart is heavy today.
What Is Roger Stone Doing in New York?
"Back. I'm talking to Roger Stone, roger. I live in New York City, I do not mug people, but I do live in New York City. I think it's overstated about the crime. That's here. We don't need to get into that. All I'm trying to say is, I live here, you rarely visit here. You visited here. I was out of town. I was very upset by that. I wish I got more notice when you're going to be around. But tell us what were you doing in New York and did you say antifa was trying to attack you? So I was invited by the New York young Republican club, which is the oldest, largest and most vibrant and active young Republican club in the country. Former members, governor Thomas E Dewey, attorney general, Herbert brownell, governor Nelson Rockefeller, former vice president, Richard Nixon when he lived all associate members. Verily a John foster dulles an associate member. Very Augusta and storied history. It is a really a vibrant club of young people and they invited me to come in for a martini mixer. This is where I spoke about the history of the martini. I reveal Richard Nixon's own secret recipe for the silver bullet. And then I move behind the bar and with the assistance of three bartenders, I mixed and poured over almost 300 martinis. By the way, The Daily Beast said they were margaritas, just to show you how to actually yeah, they're not big on mixology or theology, but that's the only two things of which they're totally ignorant. But at least call themselves The Daily Beast, so it's right out there in front, you know exactly what they are. I think they're corporate slogan is 6, 6, 6, as a matter of fact. But in any event, so with the way this worked is you bought your ticket on eventbrite. And then roughly an hour before the event, the club would send you an email telling you the location of the event. Otherwise you have an almost guarantee of violence and other protesters. But the location of this event in Little Italy evidently leaked and there were so many bomb threats and death threats to the Italian restaurant where it was going to be held. That they canceled before hours noticed.
Sources Claim That Ron DeSantis Ate Pudding With Three Fingers
"New York magazine, Margaret Hartman, headline. Ron DeSantis eating pudding with his fingers will end his 2024 bid. She writes Ron DeSantis has been hit with a fast art with a food related accusation so weird it may end his 2024 presidential bid before it officially starts. The Daily Beast reports that according to two sources, the Florida governor once ate chocolate pudding with three fingers. This article in a New York publication says politicians are human beings who need to consume food and water in order to live just like the rest of us, but they should really consider only taking in sustenance alone in a darkened room. Just to be safe. Chris Christie is forever the governor who berated a guy while clutching an ice cream cone. The only thing most people remember about senator Amy Klobuchar's 2020 presidential bid is that she was accused of eating salad with a comb. I mean, this is a serious argument. That they're making. Ron DeSantis being a messy eater eater is a disqualifier. Now what's fascinating is I know this doesn't surprise you. The elitist of New York magazine doesn't even consider Ron DeSantis military career.
The Daily Beast: DeSantis Ate Chocolate Pudding With 3 Fingers
"The bombshell report yesterday. Over at The Daily Beast, there are two sources, not one but two sources that say that on a flight on a private jet somewhere, governor desantis, 8 a container of pudding using three fingers, not just one finger, not two, but all three fingers. And I've done a lot of goofy things in my life. I admit I've never eaten pudding with my fingers. I just wolfed down a Saint Patrick's Day cupcake. Actually, don't tell anyone. I ate two. I'm gonna be in the doghouse with Rachel over at PhD weight loss and nutrition. Once in a while you cheat a little bit, good thing is I know what to do when I go off the wagon and I cheat a little bit, but it was good. But you eat cupcakes, and those aren't easy to eat. 'cause the icing gets on your nose a little bit. I'm not kidding you. That was serious reporting. Sources say Ron DeSantis is a messy eater. And he ate pudding using three fingers. You know, do you realize how badly they want Trump to be the nominee? And I've concluded that this is what they're thinking. They want to take desantis out of contention. They want Trump to be the nominee because they think that Biden can beat Trump.

"Tech products. Yeah, and actually at the end of last year to that point, as some of the conversations I was having with commerce publishers was that it's less of a focus on maybe like the best deal, but more about best bank for your buck. So finding something that is going to last a long time and kind of sits in that budget window of not the most expensive, not the cheapest because you're going to have to replace that, but what's that kind of sweet middle ground? And I think there's been a lot of kind of editorial, I guess, direction to find how users are searching for products at this point, or had been in Q four at the very least, and yeah, I'm also curious to see how that's kind of been faring, especially for commerce publishers that do a lot of product testing and reviewing themselves. I think maybe it's the publishers who don't do so much of the product testing and kind of focus on the virality of affiliate links and products that could potentially be having more issues, but all that to say. That is one of the questions I'm very eager to ask lasagna about at DPS. Yeah, back to the subscription conversation. I think another thing that's really interesting is we would think that because of the economy people would be less likely to commit to paying for something regularly, especially something that would be considered not essential, but at the same time we're seeing a lot of publishers actually have success with upgrading, subscribers to more expensive bundles, you know, The New York Times and their last few earnings reports and calls have talked about how people are willing to upgrade and pay more and then with the Atlantic, what their variable pricing, some of those prices are actually more expensive than what a typical subscription might cost to see if they can actually increase their subscription prices at some point and make more money from subscribers, CNBC. I remember I did a story a few months ago. They're also testing to see if they can increase their subscription prices this year. So it's almost like, as we're seeing inflation and other areas of the economy, it sounds like publishers are also trying to see if they can match what's happening with the inflation by trying to squeeze more money out of readers to kind of sounds like. Yeah, and marketing it like more bang for your buck. Yeah, exactly. And this is probably just a sign of it being a Friday in my brain, just spinning out since we talked about AI, but all of these also sound like things where it's like, oh, maybe just throw AI at it, like Kayleigh, when you're talking about The Daily Beast with the 5 different subscription related offerings or options or pathways to subscribership. It's just like, yeah, that's a lot of pattern matching and throw an algorithm at that. It's probably way easier or chat GPT prompts of what's the best way to ask a person to pay for subscription or product. Even going back to the privacy side of things, one topic that's been a big topic in some of the working groups that we've had at DPS in the past on the data side of things has been around consent and how to ask for people's consent. What's the language to use that feels like another one you could kind of throw that at chat GPT, although chat JPC. I may be smart enough to be like, we're not going to be handed out legal advice here. But are there any topics and we're going to have the town hall or maybe I think we might be having two town halls, I'm not sure the status of working groups, but some of the best parts of DPS to me are the conversations we can also have offstage. And behind closed doors with publishers and these anonymous settings like the town hall. And so I'm really excited for those conversations. I don't know if there's anything either of you are really looking to hear more about from the execs there. I always find that in the town halls and especially the working groups, those conversations get so granular with getting down to literally how to ask someone for their consent on data collection or how to literally just kind of build a newsletter to be personalized or not so personalized and kind of getting into the nitty Gritty and I think there's a lot of coverage that we do that's looking at kind of those macro trends or those higher level kind of strategies that publishers are executing. But there's also value in kind of looking at how these teams are putting these strategies into action or how they're kind of pivoting when things don't work out. And who on their teams are involved in these projects and what pushback they're getting to a degree and I find that in those rooms the publishers really work closely together to solve those little inefficiencies. And those are always super interesting to follow. So I think to that end, I'm sure, chat, GBT and AI is going to be a big part of that. I'm sure that we'll be talking about things like, I guess, the podcast bubble and how growth is kind of being looked at in that way in terms of just like number of shows and things of that nature, but I always really appreciate how open publishers end up being with some of those, I guess, again, more granular aspects of their jobs. Yeah, I'm curious about and maybe this is the opposite of what you're saying in terms of how granular the questions can be, but I think because a lot of those conversations, especially in those smaller groups happen off the record, I'm curious to get executives opinions on what the state of layoffs are at this point because I think we saw so many layoffs happen at the end of last year in the beginning of this year with everyone blaming the economy on needing to cut back and with sort of the optimistic language from a lot of these executives about how they think that things are going to continue to improve from this point onwards. And I'm wondering, you know, when executives are kind of off the record, if that's really how they think this year is going to go, are we really going to see improvements happening as we approach the summer and onwards throughout this year or are we going to continue to see more layoffs happen? And I know this decision has happened at kind of like a higher level, but I'm curious to get their thoughts on sort of the industry at large and how there's so many people that are saying that things are just looking up from here. And if that's really the case or if we're going to see some more sort of course correction taking

"It's interesting that they wait until March to do that because I think some companies recognize that these privacy laws are taking effect this year in California and maybe aware of California enforcement doesn't start until July 1st, 2023. So we got some time, but not realizing that the enforcement actually is retroactive. So they needed to be in compliance by January 1st. And it doesn't seem like the California attorney general's office or the agency in charge of enforcing California's privacy law are really. Willing as willing to give companies the benefit of the doubt and like a bit of a grace period. It seems more like they're like, look, the original CCPA took effect January 1st, 2020. We get there as a pandemic, but it's been three years. You all need to get your stuff together. So yeah, that's interesting about geo. I think over the holidays, everyone just got bombarded with emails from anywhere. You had signed up for a newsletter or a customer account of, hey, our terms of service are changing. Here's what they are now. So yeah, the session with Mary is going to be a lot of fun to listen to and then Sarah, I think you're the one down the session with mega from the Atlantic talking about subscriptions. And Kayleigh you have some sessions to talking about subscriptions. I think you're talking with Kate pillage from the daily base. It just seems like there's so much to be talking about on the subscription front these days. Yeah, definitely. I wrote a story earlier this year about how the Atlantic is really pushing to get to a million subscribers by the end of next year and part of their strategy to do that was to roll out this new smart meter that basically it weighs a lot of things, including propensity to subscribe, of course, but also how much a potential subscriber is willing to pay for subscriptions, so it also has variable pricing in it, which I think is really interesting. And at the time, the Atlantic was saying that in test, it hadn't the smart meter hadn't impacted churn or bounce rates in any kind of negative way. And in fact, it helped increase the Atlantic's arpu. So I'm really curious to see how that smart meters performing now that we're a few months out from when it first rolled out and to see how much it's really helped to gain subscribers and also balance between advertising revenue and subscription revenue because of that smart meter that won't pop up for everyone. Yeah, for the Daily Beast end of things, I wrote about their restructuring of their subscription business. It's kind of like a 5 piece equation for how they're monetizing audiences because. I think this change was happening in the beginning of 2022, so they have about a year under their belt now, but it was a interesting approach that I've kind of seen replicated or done in tandem with The Daily Beast across the industry, but really trying to find ways to use the known user, the subscriber in more ways to further monetize them, increase arpu, average revenue per user. But I think what The Daily Beast was doing at the time is like trying to create a known user before they subscribe as well and kind of get them into that funnel. So whether that's signing up for a newsletter or downloading their app kind of entering a relationship with The Daily Beast at like a registration wall level and exchanging some information about themselves, which then becomes more valuable on the advertising side of things and increases their chances of converting, at least that's what the at least that's what the kind of test was hoping to prove out. So a year later, I'm really eager to hear about how well those plans or those ideas have come to fruition and if those known users actually do have a higher arpu or do have a higher propensity for subscribing. And then I kind of also am just at a higher level, interested in how reader revenue businesses are doing in this economic downturn. And if there has been any kind of pressure on subscribers to maybe budget out some of their monthly subscriptions, it's something I've certainly considered. Myself, I've had to weigh which ones I want to keep paying for and yes, audible did win over peloton app, but it's a curiosity that is kind of following me around this quarter to see how reader revenue really is impacted by the economic downturn. I don't think it's been as kind of prevalent as advertising revenue, but still something to consider. And then I guess also how commerce revenue ties into that too. I think that's another huge area of reader revenue that has the potential of being a little shaky. Yeah. I'm also curious whether it ends up not being as shaky. I feel like there was so much angst. It late last year, like really second half of last year. And then January, February, in March, but that over the past couple months, it feels like there's also been an undergirding of, oh, wait, maybe things aren't as bad. They're not necessarily great, but God, maybe we thought it was going to be so bad that actually things are kind of okay, because we're recording this and the jobs numbers just came out this morning and jobs grew. And then the unemployment rate was, I think, around like 3.9%, which is relatively low. I think it was up a little bit, but still fairly low by contrast to all the headlines over the past couple of months around cost cutting and layoffs. And so I wonder, I feel like there's even been an element of people are still buying a lot of products and are willing to spend money in that it's the issue more has been companies saw all this growth from in 2021 compared to 2020 or they saw the growth in 2020 accelerated by the pandemic and kind of were counting on that to stay the case, like Shopify, was really Ben Thompson. I think it was this week and one of his strategies updates talked about how Shopify had really tried to invest it in that growth continuing and has seen it slowed and so now they're having to make adjustments in response to that. And it feels like a lot of the angst is may be less about the end customer at least when we're talking about people as opposed to necessarily advertisers or businesses and more about maybe some companies just got in over their skis a little bit. So one thing I'm trying to be open to with all these conversations is like hearing back. Actually things are going pretty well. Kayleigh, you're doing the session with leilani from wirecutter. And I'm really interested to hear what she has to say about the state of their commerce business right now because I mean tech is one of those areas where all these tech companies are doing layoffs and also tech is a lot of pricier products and why are cutter a lot of the products that they feature are
"the daily beast" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Last evening, I gave a speech at the University of California Santa Barbara. Here's the good news. You want some hope for America. We could not find a room big enough to fit all the students that were interested and curious to attend our event. We had to turn away anywhere between 80 to 200 students last night. Now that's upsetting in one sense we should have been able to get a bigger room, but to the credit of University of California, Santa Barbara, they were accommodating. We got the room. The microphones worked, which sometimes doesn't always happen when you go on college campus. They deserve credit for that. It's very interesting. Not only did I visit and give a speech in the evening, I embedded myself right on the campus itself. By the way, this is the number one news story right now at The Daily Beast. It must be a very slow news day. Where Charlie Kirk speaks at California university and clashes breakout. Okay, that's a little bit of an exaggeration. So I set up a card table for two hours on campus yesterday, and I just asked questions. But any topic that they want to explore, certainly attracts interest and curiosity, but the first hour and I'm there for about two hours. They've never had an opportunity before to have robust, rigorous, dialog, or debate with a conservative who has thought deeply about these issues. Now, I'll give credit to actually the students at University of California, Santa Barbara. They are not stupid. I have done this all across the country. They are actually some of the more knowledgeable and I would say on top of the issues students. I would even go as far to say they were almost smarter than the UC Berkeley kids, to be honest. UC Santa Barbara, you could tell that these kids are scoring high test scores. That they're reading the news. However, as I was sitting there, despite all, you know, the insult people telling me to go that and I'll read, you know, go to hell and all that stuff. That's all whatever. That's normal. They first treat you as if you're an extraterrestrial. And I don't mean that negatively. Again, many of them were very kind and very sweet. But you could tell that they've never seen such a thing. For someone to come and say that America is the greatest nation ever to exist in the history of the world. That's systemic racism does not exist in America, that institutional racism does not exist. It almost like an animal at a zoo like a circus act almost. They look at you and they can not in the moment process it because it's usually met with just like laughing and smirking and looking at their friends like, could you believe this guy? This guy just said, we need a border, but the importance of going to places where our message has not been heard is of the, it is mission critical to the civilization. I hear all the time and people say, Charlie, I'm tired of preaching to the choir. I actually think the choir needs to hear the sermon every so often. We got to make sure that the troops know what they believe and why they believe it. I speak at churches. I speak at places where 99% of the people there agree with what I say..

Woody Harrelson Cracks SNL Jokes at Big Pharma's Expense
"We're going to play the entire tape, which is cut ten. It's a minute long of Woody Harrelson, saying a lot of things that are true. An SNL and the response from the media has just been overwhelming. He said something relatively benign, nothing that was that aggressive or that controversial, so actually we're going to go to cut 7, this is Woody Harrelson hosting SNL on big pharma's response to COVID-19 play cut 7. Okay, so the movie goes like this. The biggest drug cartels in the world get together and buy up all the media and all the politicians and force all the people in the world stay locked in their homes and people can only come out if they take the cartels drugs and keep taking them over and over. I threw the script away. I mean, who is going to believe that crazy idea? Now did he go off script? Was he saying something that wasn't actually on script or was he talking about a hypothetical movie script that he would throw it away saying there's no way that's actually true. What you heard right there again was just kind of an offhand remark. Was it, was it spontaneous? Was it scripted? Who knows? But Woody Harrelson is saying something that's totally true. The media is purchased by big tech. They're purchased by Pfizer. The entire media, if you look at one after the other after the other, they say brought to you by Pfizer, brought to you by Pfizer. And the response to Woody Harrelson saying just that little remark has been extraordinary. Let me read some of these headlines here. Variety magazine. Woody Harrelson Saturday Night Live monologue makes COVID conspiracy jokes, Huffington Post. Woody Harrelson rambles about weed, anti vax conspiracy and SNL monologue. Woody Harrelson spews anti vax conspiracies in rambling SNL monologue. Woody Harrelson spreads anti vax conspiracies during SNL monologue, literally the same headline for the Rolling Stone and Daily Beast. There's not an original thought that these people ever have.
Candace Owens Shares Her Thoughts on James O'Keefe
"We have Candace Owens and now the great Candace Owens Candace. Charlie Starr is having some tech issues here, so I'm basically FaceTime and you know what that works. No problem. Candace, how should we think about the project veritas tragedy? Slimy. I mean, the backstabbing. It is a tragedy. I mean, for me, it felt strangely personal just because when I was really coming up in this movement, James O'Keefe was one of the first people that I met. I like so vividly remember him speaking down at the harwich freedom center when I met you that first time. And he was just such an incredible person so impressive and one of the things that's really left a mark on me is that he doesn't dabble in the dark side of politics. What I mean by that is that he's not one of these D.C. people that you see drunk that you would see drunk every night at the Trump hotel when Trump was in office. He was so dedicated to his work. He's so professional and he's well liked by everybody for a reason. And so when you watch somebody build something like project veritas from the ground up and then once it's up, you see people that are so conniving and backstabbing and willing to essentially put things in the public that just look petty. I mean talking about they actually whoever leaked to The Daily Beast talk about petty and slimy leaking to William sommer of The Daily Beast who's one of the most big boy people abi daily based, which is just despicable publication that he once took a sandwich and ate it from a woman that was 8 months pregnant. I mean, how small does this scene leaking the financials? And I guess hoping that people are so ignorant that they would think that $60,000 spends on a corporate event that's entitled the project veritas experience and event that I was invited to. You know, so that employees can relax. You want employees to be able to relax and to enjoy the atmosphere, especially given how under pressure employees a project veritas are. We watch games that keep be dragged out of his home in the middle of the night wearing his boxers. I think I'm okay as somebody who personally donates a lot of money into project veritas as I do. I'm okay with James O'Keefe letting loose at a $6000 party for him and his employees. They deserve that. They've earned that.
"the daily beast" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"We had an entire hour conversation with Steve Bannon yesterday about project veritas and what is happening with James O'Keefe, James, who founded project veritas, has now been kicked out of his own organization on some real ticky tack stuff. I got to tell you, and I have spent a lot of time on the phone and asking if there's something else that I'm missing. And we had the documents here yesterday, but the long and short of it is like, oh, well, we don't like how many black cars that you took, even though that they were for business. We went to the whole thing yesterday. And they said, well, there's this charter flight that is in question that have him repay it. If it's really that big of a deal, then have him repay it if he can't repay it, then just say it's a loan against the organization and set up a payment plan and charge reasonable interest. And there's protocols. This is all not without precedent. There's protocols for all these sorts of things. Yes, even with nonprofits, but the question is, is the country in a better place if James O'Keefe is then and put an exile and has to go start his own organization? It is just so wrong on so many levels. That a founder of an organization slaves over it for ten years. Post massive wins. Again, it's not like James O'Keefe was just shuffling papers around and write and stuff and journals that no one actually reads. He was out in the trenches, capturing people on video exposing some of the darkest deeds of deceit and treachery in our entire society and did it time and time and time again you name a cabal of corruption. James O'Keefe was able to expose them. Pfizer, FDA. CDC. Remember the Hillary Clinton campaign from a project veritas action back in the 2016, Donald Trump presidential campaign James O'Keefe was able to get jankowski's husband, the union organizer on camera saying that they have paid thugs going to Trump rallies. Now people forget about that one.

I ask you what we're talking about a grand jury indictment, and I said, what law did he break and you said he never revealed his taxes? You understand there's no law that requires the president to prove in taxes. No, Mike, you asked me why didn't I vote for him? No, I actually wanted to none of you went back. You went back to the crowd. You're talking so much. You're talking so on an erupted that you're not listening to me. What law did he break Emily? He went in and actually paid people to go overturn the elections. He was in and pay hooty pay to overturn the election, Emily. That's a new one. He was bribing. They don't even say that. They don't even say that at The Daily Beast. Who did he bribe? He bribed a governor? Have you been watching any of the Fox News stuff coming out? I need you to update me. Which governor did he bribe to overturn the election, Emily? Tell me. I need you to start watching the news. It's not a heart. It's not a hard question. Hey, Emily. Hey, Emily. It's not a hard question. Which, hey Emily, which governor did he bribe? Just give me the name, which governor. He's vibes many. Give me one. Give me one. Give me one. How about one governor? I'm going to try one more time before I got to say goodbye on this lovely conversation we're having that I'm sure everybody's enjoying give me one name of one governor that he bribed. Brainwashed.

The latest from double DTP national security correspondent JJ green Saturday morning. Yesterday, joint chiefs chairman general Mark milley was quoted as saying essentially this war will end at the negotiating table. Neither Russia nor Ukraine will achieve their goals. But Ukrainians including kuleba say today, and they've said this almost since the beginning. They would never surrender to Russia. And president zelensky has said they would not stop until every inch of Ukraine's territory has been returned. And they're even more committed now to that because it's the one year mark of this war arrives. They're closest striking a major blow against Moscow. And talk of negotiations and we're hearing a lot of it these days sounds to them like a compromise.

Every Friday morning, Gillian Burgess leads a group of kids including hers to esquela key elementary in Boston. The point of the bike bus is that it's safety in numbers. We have so many people buy together. It's safer because we are easier to see. Burgess, who lives car free, acknowledges the idea of a bike bus isn't new, but that escorting kids and their classmates to school on two wheels provides an energy outlet and a sense of community. By putting them on a bike and letting them be the ones to literally move through themselves, get themselves all the way to school. I hope to be able to give them some more of that confidence and some more of that independence that they need to be developing during their childhood. Meghan cloher WTO he news

I am single handedly making that phrase happen. I don't care if none of you are gonna say it after this. We, as a me and you, nadir, we recently had a round table about this is why the album with our friend colleague and I see why my favorite Frank and entertainment editor over The Daily Beast former editor of this show you're listening to right now. And during that conversation, there was this kind of interesting tension between us. Similar to the one we just had about Rihanna. Except it was about the way we felt about the influx of attention on black pop punkers. You wrote in our round table. When the Internet found out that black people appear more, it was both a joyous moment and a really annoying one for me. It was partially joyous because I love when we get recognition for stuff. And also because there are plenty of people who are thinking, I thought I was the only one. But the idea that it's a surprise that black people specifically adolescents would love a female led pop punk band that was churning out straight bangers is wolf, it's a lot, and it's slightly unfair. And as one of those kids who, as I said, thought they were the only one. I want you to expand a bit on that feeling unfair, because honestly, up until this round table, the black emo renaissance me was primarily a moment of like, oh my God, Friends. Yeah, I think that's true. And you touched on my general dissatisfaction with the constant resurgence of that trend, right? Because it's constantly resurging. So I think the first time I noticed a viral moment about black people a paramore was a tweet in 2018. And then there were the tiktoks during the early stages of the pandemic. So that was 2020, and then I feel like even in just last year, there were a few resurgences on TikTok again of black people love paramore. And I love it every time because I just think it's the most beautiful thing watching black people talk about how much they love something, especially something that they feel like before they weren't able to talk about. But I find it sort of deeply unsettling to keep seeing this resurgence of this surprise or this idea that like, oh my God, black people like something as if paramore wasn't one of the more popular bands of that era, as if misery business wasn't one of the most popular songs of that era, as if black people wouldn't just generally like things that are popular and things that are good just because they're they themselves, like the thing itself is not black. And so having that just be thrown in my face multiple times is kind of like, I really want to suspend the notion that black people only a certain type of thing that mimics them because first of all, there wouldn't be enough for that to be for that to be the case. And so I want to suspend that notion like first and foremost. But I also want to suspend the notion because to say one of your favorite words and something that I mentioned in the piece, it is very much an oro Boris. So the reason why black people specifically kids think that they're the only ones who like something is because the other black kids who like that same thing don't talk about it because those black kids think that they are the only ones who like it. And so I think in order to just stop that trend stop that cycle, it is important to have these resurgences, but I wish that we could do it once and do it finally and just have that be it because it just keeps every time I see it just reiterates this idea that like, oh wow, we are still surprised that black people like things. Like I need us to stop being surprised about this. Yes, yes. That is so fair and I think really goes to the general amnesia of the Internet in that. What is new is old again and what is old is new again and what is old people are pretend nobody has ever said before. And it comes up with paramore and black people specifically because I just think people don't look shit up on one level, but also because I feel like that unfairness you're talking about is kind of like the other side of the coin of the isolation that I and others felt as kids listening to paramore. It's the other side of the question of why is it weird that I like this band that's so many of my peers do even if they're not black or why am I being made to feel weird? And so I really do understand like you're feeling that it's unfair 'cause it is. It's just like why is this a conversation that we're having? Not least because paramore's influences are so strongly black. So of course black people would like it. And I mean today, no one ever questions why like white teens like rap music. Like no one ever no one ever looks at a white teen and is like, oh, why do you like
"the daily beast" Discussed on Opening Arguments
"Court of Appeals finds that Trump was acting within the scope of his presidential duties when he called Carol a liar because like we talked about last week. The government has not waved sub were an immunity for defamation. So if Trump succeeds in substituting the government is defendant, there'll be no more Carol one. If you fails, the cases will likely be combined and heard together in April. And we should know the answer to that question in a couple of weeks. So I just want to make sure that I completely understand the first case that was filed. What you're calling Carol one is the defamation suit from 2019. That began in state court, Alina haba is still the lawyer of record on that. And that was removed to federal court when Trump was president by Bill Barr who substituted in under the westfall act and said, this is within the scope of presidential duties. And that case, we're just waiting on an imminent ruling from the D.C. circuit, right? Correct. Correct. I know I get so excited about it because I've been covering it forever. Yeah, no, I know. I just want to make sure that I've got them straight in my mind. And then Carol two has two elements to it. The first is the New York adult survivors act, which allowed her to bring a battery claim against Donald Trump, even though the statute of limitations had expired. And the additional and unbelievable act, well, I'm saying unbelievable. It's Donald Trump. The fact that Donald Trump out of office as president went on truth social and reiterated all the prior things that he'd said said them again in a different forum, preface them with no I shouldn't be saying this, but so you have that. Okay, great. And I think analysis on the civil procedure aspect of this is a 100% correct that what would happen is if Carol one goes forward. If the D.C. circuit says, hey, presidents are on the job a lot, but when they are talking about and answering questions about case from 30 years prior to them entering office that has nothing to do with their presidential duties, they're not on duty at that time. If that happens, Carol one goes forward and the cases get combined because they all arise out of the same common nucleus of operative effects. Correct. I get that right, yeah, great. And what you were talking about what a terrible witness he was. One of the ways that Trump was a terrible witness was that he admitted that he had not researched any of the claims that he made about her. So when he said that her book was terrible, he hadn't read it. When he said that she was being paid by Democrats, he had no basis for that claim. When he said that she falsely accused other men, he had no basis for that claim either. So he did not, he was not making an official presidential statement. He was striking back. And he pretty clearly admitted that under oath, the last. And also, those are not great answers when it comes to the standard of proving defamation, right? Saying, so what factual basis did you have for any of this none? Okay. You do you, but that's not a great way to resist a defamation claim. Okay, so back to taka Pena is now in Carol two. Right, but he's only representing Trump in that second sexual battery case and the defamation. Haba is still around. She's on Carol one and she's still doing her best to keep judge Lewis Kaplan good and mad, which is her superpower, pissing off judges. Talk a penis seems, though, that he might be ready to pick up right where hava left off because about 5 minutes after the hearing last week when Trump's new lawyer promised no more dilatory tactics. Jose Paul garri from The Daily Beast published a story citing quote a source familiar with his defense team's new strategy, who said that Trump was at long last now that discovery has already been completed willing to provide his DNA to Carol. So here we are, like, 9 weeks before the trial, and he's ready to, he's ready for that cheek swap. So poly wrote, Trump's been that proposition has not yet been made to the opposing side, but if they follow through, it would position them to tell jurors his DNA was offered just never trusted, which is a cool trick, huh? Yeah, so let's and I know you're going to break this down in more detail. But you can 100% infer bad faith here. The parties understand that discovery has closed, right? And so when discovery has closed what that means is you can't ask additional documents. You can't ask additional interrogatories. You can't follow up on anything. You can't take additional depositions. So remember I said put a pin in that Alina hop a chain of custody thing? If Donald Trump were to turn over his cheek swab DNA to aging Carroll, think about what she would have to do with it, right? She'd have to have an expert match it up against the DNA that's on the dress. That expert would have to prepare a report. You would want to know how did you want to depose the custodial witness, right? The custodian of Trump's cheek swab, right? To make sure that I don't know, he didn't go down and like get Don Junior Tiffany to stick him in. There's a ton of things that there's a reason why this stuff is exchanged during discovery because you can put the person under oath and you can ask them a question and deposition of, sir, did you submit to this? Is this your sample? Did you have your cheek swabbed? And that not only authenticates the document right now or here in this case authenticates the record, the actual DNA itself. But it gives you the opportunity to probe for, I don't know. Have they done something squarely about it, right? And none of that can happen. And so you know you know with ironclad certainty as a lawyer when you make that offer that the other side is like,

"Our breaking news night that the House select committee investigating the capitol attack has asked Sean Hannity for his cooperation comes as the committee is also in a fight with the former president over his White House records about that day. The fight currently in the hands of the Supreme Court, of course. Last night, democratic member of the committee, California Zoe lofgren, joined the broadcast to explain why these records now housed at the national archives in Washington are so important. You mentioned national archives. Why do you think that information in particular may be so relevant? Well, it has everything. It's got the call logs who called in, who visited, it's got the rough drafts of comments that he made. We understand that there were several videos made, you know, they have the outtakes. So we want to see it will give us some insight into what the former president thought he was doing during those 187 minutes when he failed to intervene. I'm joined now by a former archivist at the national archives, John Carlin, who now teaches at Kansas state university and previously served as the governor of that state. Governor appreciate you joining us. You told The Daily Beast for referring to the former president's legal battle, quote, given how frantic they are, there are things in those records that are going to make real trouble. I'm talking about prison time. Why do you say that? What makes you believe that there could be some criminal exposure in those records? Well, I basically quite frankly on the fact that the president is spending a lot of time energy and actual money lawyers trying to keep it from happening. Why he would do that if he wasn't worried about what was in those records. I think it's pretty obvious. He knows there are things there that would cause him serious problems. And I would assume at some point, certainly hopeful that those records are released so that the committee can have access to them and in doing their job. This is really an exercise in why records are so important. Government can not be held accountable unless you have records. Can you explain for viewers what kind of records The White House is required by law to preserve? I mean, how big is the scope of the things that have to be handed over the national archives? Well, it's broad. Everything is considered a record. It's not like an agency where you have schedules where you can some records you might just need to keep for 5 years, never go to the archives, 7 25, et cetera, et cetera. Everything since starting with Watergate moving forward, presidential records, the tapes, text messages, et cetera, whatever system it's on. And how can the arc, how can an archivist be sure that, you know, a White House, the Trump White House actually did preserve and turn over all the documents. It was required to preserve. For example, if a White House official wrote an email or a memo about the events, what's to stop the sender or the recipients from deleting the document or tossing it in the trash. Well, unfortunately, there is no way to have stopped that. I sense is that I'm quite sure that archives got a lot of records. What they don't know is what percent of the actual records that were created that they have. Because we have a serious flaw in our system. The national archives is has this huge responsibility, but they have no authority, no power to really engage with the president during the term similar to agencies. They can kind of hope, check in, volunteer to help, but they're at the mercy of the record keeping system in this case of the president. And therefore, no one really knows Anderson, what percent of the records are actually in the archives, how much was lost along the way, literally because of the way the system is operated and the failure of Congress to give the archives enough authority to at least know what's going on during the term so that they can report to Congress and say, we got a problem here. That just doesn't happen today because they don't have that authority. Also, I mean, if presidential aides are using their private private devices or using encrypted communications, telegram, signal, things like that, those are not things that would necessarily, if it's on someone's private device, be turned over, correct? That's kind of a gray area that quite frankly, I've never dealt with in my experience, but Watergate made a dramatic change and I spent all my ten years dealing with the Nixon tapes, but in terms of some of the new technologies of the last 15, 20 years, I can't say specifically. That must have been fascinating, dealing with the Nixon tapes, man. John Carlin, I really appreciate your time. Thank you so much. Happy to join you. Anderson, you have a good evening. You too. Thank you. Coming up next COVID, specifically how this latest surge is affecting kids and how that is reigniting the debate about schools. Have a good day behavior so she goes to work at three in the afternoon and sometimes gets off it midnight. She works a

"Once paid for a girlfriend's abortion, this goes back 13 years and ladies and gentlemen, here we are on the 4th of October. With a genuine October surprise, whether it makes a difference is a very different question. Now, remember that this race in Georgia, Herschel Walker, reverend Warnock, they're within a point right now within a percentage point. According to the real clear poll of polls. The must win for control. Of the Senate. As we hear from The Daily Beast, not only was this an accusation, but there's a $700 check that was sent a get well card and the woman who has not been identified by The Daily Beast has a receipt from the procedure. Quick to deny this in a written statement, Herschel Walker, but also went further. They put them on TV within hours of this. His statement reads simply quote, I deny this in the strongest possible terms on, quote, Herschel Walker appears on the Hannity program on Fox News to talk this out. If Hannity starts by asking him if he knows this woman, if he remembers this woman who's made the accusation. I have no idea, but it is a flight out lie. And now you know how important this seat is, the seat is very important that they'll do anything to win this seat, lie 'cause they want to make it by everything else except what the true problems that we have in this country is. Okay. Necessarily say a lot there, but I guess we understand you say that's a lie. Not sure if he knows this woman or knew who this came from. This is again 13 years ago when they're saying this happened. Okay, did you write the check the $700 check? That was pictured in the story. Well, I sent money to a lot of people. And that's what's so funny. And let's go back to my part. You know, I do scholarship for kids. I give money to people all the time, 'cause I'm always helping people because I believe in being generous. God is blessed me. I want to bless others. Now, we have to listen to the words. That are being spoken here. He did not deny writing the check there, right? Now how about the card the get well card did you send the get well card in Hannity asked him is that they've got it open. The picture of the cards open. Is that your signature in the cart? I haven't seen it, but I can tell you I send out so many get well send out so much anything, but I can tell you right now I never asked anyone to get an abortion I never paid for an abortion and it's a lie. And I'm going to continue to fight. That's what they want. They want this seat, but right now they've been energized me even more. Interesting language again there. I never asked anyone to get an abortion. Which he was technically not accused of. And I never paid for anyone to have an abortion, that $700 could have been sent after the fact. We're just trying to actually parse the words. The GOP is standing behind Herschel Walker all in as I read on the terminal GOP stands by walker as he denies paying for abortion, the national Republican senatorial committee, not with a statement chair Rick Scott. This is just like the smears. They attempted against Brett Kavanaugh and clarence Thomas, he writes, and it will not work. Herschel has denied these allegations, and the NRSC and Republicans stand with him and Georgians will stand with him too. Donald Trump issued a statement as well. Herschel Walker being slandered maligned by fake news media obviously the Democrats. He goes, you can tell this was dictated. It's very important for our country, the great state of Georgia that Herschel Walker wins this election Donald Trump writes with all that Herschel has accomplished. When you come from Georgia and you see the name Herschel Walker when voting, it will be very hard to resist. Don't. Had to unwind that for a second. Enter Herschel Walker's son, I mean, this really, we've been around the world already today. Christian walker takes to Twitter and he wrote his own tweet. It says I've stayed silent for nearly two years, as my whole life has been lied about publicly. I did one campaign event. Then said I didn't want involvement that refers to his appearance at Mar-a-Lago with his dad. Don't you dare test my authenticity. And he put a video together. I decided why, after life, the abortion car drops yesterday, it's literally his handwriting in the car. They say they have receipts, whatever. He gets on Twitter, he lies about it. Okay, I'm done. Okay? We're not, though. Because we have 5 weeks to go, and we reassemble the panel to talk it out. Rick Davis, Jeannie chansa no Bloomberg politics contributors. Aren't you glad you showed up for work today guys? What are you thinking about this Rick damage control? Or does it even matter? People saw this and they thought access Hollywood tape didn't even make a dent really. Well, access Hollywood tape or not. This is not the kind of campaign day if your Herschel Walker you want to have. And I'm sure he's going to spend time talking about this instead of beating up his opponent on inflation, which is what he wants to do. And so the question is, does he write his ship and stop talking about this before the end of the week? Or is it still in the next week? And what does his son Christian walker continue to say on Twitter that could elevate this? And so look, I mean, it's really bad day for him. That being said, he's had a great summer. And from anybody stretch the imagination, he's over performing for a first time candidate in a tough election. So I think this is going to be one of the most hotly watched races in the country. Mitch McConnell needs this race to become majority leader. And he's

"I made several, I think when I worked for The Daily Beast involving Tucker Carlson and it's just sort of a thing that I've kind of always done. And you know, in this instance, I sort of had an idea. And I think, you know, I do a lot of just really silly things on the Internet. And again, this is sort of the thing that I've kind of always done. And I generally, if I get an idea, I limit myself to executing it in 15 minutes. I've got enough other things going on in my life than to be wasting time on this sort of thing. And if it's not funny or interesting or making a point in 15 minutes, then I toss it. And I just delete the project and I move on. So in this case, you know, I spent a quarter of an hour, you know, the clip with the clip with Hannity was already out there on Twitter, and then I knew that the Ron DeSantis was defending a raid that he had ordered on a critic of his here in Florida regarding COVID statistics back in 2020. And so I pulled up the video of that and I spiced it together and I made no effort toward trying to pass it off as being real and I to this day don't understand how anybody could see that it was real. I mean, first of all, it's night where Sean Hannity is and it's daytime where Ron DeSantis is, which how could that be? The same 6 frames of Sean Hannity loop over and over for 90 seconds. It's just it's a fairly obvious mashup. And so for whatever reason, a lot of people felt it necessary to share it as if it were real. And I, you know, 15 minutes or less right after I had tweeted it, you know, somebody had tweeted back at me, you know, oh, this is fake, and I quote tweeted it in the immediate tweet next to the video saying, yeah, I know. I made it. And even then, it apparently wasn't enough to settle down the people who seemed outraged by the fact that I had made this mash up. And you know, I've kind of been at war with Ron DeSantis office for a long time. And one thing his spokesperson really likes to do is to attack me even though she has me blocked on Twitter, which, you know, for really, I think in the general purpose of talking about who you disagree with, one of the most cowardly things that you can do is block somebody and then criticize them because they have no way of seeing what you're saying about them and they have no way of responding to it. And I think that that's, you know, I think that the idea of discourse commands that you be able to respond to your critics. I think that that's just a sort of a basic thing we understand in a democracy, right? So they really, really got upset about this. And then Hannity tweets it out and says, this is fake. Don't share this, which of course, you know, that's the streisand effect, right? He just shared, you know, I have a 110,000 followers or something. He's got millions, and he just decided to share this thing out there.

finance whatsoever but to buy sounds kind of interesting I've studied the Middle East This could be cool It's either that or do my service and the Norwegian army We saw prescription over here So yes I grabbed my bags and jetted off to Dubai to cover Islamic finance So you're in Dubai what was your first big story A day after a landed I interviewed the local shakes about Islamic reinsurance which is as esoteric as it sounds So Islamic insurance is actually called taco And Islamic reinsurance is called the retail And it's actually got a quite cool interesting twist to it fundamentally Islamic finance is all about risk sharing that you've not supposed to get money for nothing So famously interest is banned It's Haram and the Sharia So the various workarounds that range essentially from gimmicks to actual series interesting mechanisms to make sure that people share in the risk and reward equally Really quite interesting So let's talk a little bit about journalism the FT is printed 5 days a week That's right There's no weak in addition The New York Times is 7 days The Wall Street Journal of 6 days what's it like having to shove all that content into the more of that Daily Beast How much of a stressor is needing to keep the beast filled Well it's actually a lot of fun I mean it's stressful but it's not stressful compared to a lot of other jobs out there My wife is a nurse she used to work in a cancer ward That certainly has a bit of a perspective Sure And you know my first job in a big mainstream organization was actually Bloomberg news And that's in a competitive driven organization And it's very much oriented around news and yes feeding the beast and getting stuff out there quickly And I loved it You know I always joke that I mean that the FT far longer now but if you cut me I still believe a little bit of orange It really left its mark So these days actually my job is fantastically relaxed because I primarily write columns features long form stuff and the occasional book when time allows it And this was your first book did you have to stop working to dive into this Or was this a side project Well it started off as a side project because it overlaps a lot with my day job I cover passive investing a lot It's one of the biggest trends in markets and finance these days But my plan was to take a decent chunk of 2020 off to write it So I've been doing research on our ongoing basis but writing is something I find at least long form I need to devote a big chunk of time to do it properly Unfortunately when COVID hit I had to those plans just completely collapsed There was no chance I could take any time off work I was essentially doing two full-time jobs trying to homeschool the children because my wife was not home she was a nurse And writing this every time I had a spare evening weakened every holiday in 2020 and parts of 2021 went to this book So I think it worked but I think if I'm ever going to write the book again I'm going to definitely manage the carve out some proper time off and pray that there isn't another pandemic to say the least So you've been writing about markets and investing for well over a decade What do you think the investing public doesn't know about the business of news that they really should know It's a really interesting question I get this a lot In fact sometimes we discuss it internally I think one thing that surprises people isn't purely business related But the lack of a house view and even frankly politics and journalism I think fundamentally most journalists actually just think like journalists It's a culture rather than politics And we think in terms of good and bad stories rather than pandering to owners advertisers and so on the way that many people think it operates Right A lot of what outside is attribute to ideology or commercial imperatives is sometimes simply the cultural journalism for good and bad But on the business side I mean it's no secret that running or working at a newspaper is not a great way to get rich these days to paraphrase Richard Branson I think the best way to become a newspaper millionaire is probably to start off as a billionaire and buy a newspaper Coming up we continue our conversation with Robin wigglesworth FT's global finance correspondent and author of a new book on passive investing discussing trillions of dollars and passive investments You're listening to masters in business with very rid.

I feel like if you watch that boom, boom, boom like you watch like a drama like you'll eat up a drama like Boston a week, right? You know, eight episodes. It's too sugary. It's like eating two donuts and and then an ice cream sandwich. It's just too much. It's too much sugar.

It's too much, okay, it's and so because, you know, I watched head But Casey and I, like, watch that in a week too much and too sweet. Too much to pass. I feel like that is something you can do like with. 000 you know when you have an eight episode Oh, yes. On Netflix. Lupin! Lupin! You know it's more of a drama, right where you're on cliffhangers like sometimes doesn't feel good show is that you should let the feel good feelings Linger watching. That's such good advice. Thank you. Thank you. Epic TV advices like that one much more than anybody. I think you're right. Okay? So Jason is second to G. Q. Uh, August issue and the reporter brought up Olivia Wilde brought up Olivia Wilde and, uh, about why they broke up what happened? And he said this. I'll have a better understanding of why in a year And an even better one and two And an even greater one in five and it'll go from being you know, a book of my life to becoming a chapter two paragraph to align. To a word to a doodle. Wow. He was crushed that Yeah, he was crying soldier had some pondering based on those words was crashed, and he's going to say she I'm going to wash that woman right out of my hair. It's gonna take me well. Yep. Wow, he said I've ever heard such a brilliant. I don't feel honest answer like from somebody and there's a little bit of a distant there. There's a big disk and they share Children together, but basically she took me out of left field. I was crazy for I can't wait to win. It doesn't absorb every moment of my life. That's what it says He does. He really, He doesn't know what happened. No. Well, and you guys remember telling me like we always thought it was like a weird pairing in the first place. So clearly, I always thought they were an odd couple. Yeah, I mean, and I I I never did. I thought they were cute. Remember you saying that I thought it was cute because it gave me like the guy that I told you. I just I think everyday guy shot with one of the most beautiful women in the world, right? So He's probably realizing that he Upon it, his coverages men say from time to time, and he is missing that for sure, but that it will go from being a book of my life to be in the Chapter two paragraph to align to a word to a doodle. That's really hopefully and that's just a dumb thing to say out loud. Say that to your therapist. Yes, because that is ever forever in print, and Daddy wrote. Yeah, it's just kind of like God, Dad better much, Okay. What Moody. Then they asked him about wearing the hoodie. At the, uh um, the words Golden Golden globes. Okay, The Golden Globes. He was in the UK, where he films head last. Yeah, six hours later, and he's in my diabetes and it had some name of a dance studio added that his sister teaches at that's correct. And, uh, think that I remember that, he said, Uh, there were rumors that he was wearing that because he was still heartbroken or high. And he told GQ I was neither high Nor heartbroken. Um, he said, I wore that hoodie because I didn't bleep him want to wear the bleeping top half of a Tom Ford suit. I love time for Ford suits. But it felt weird as hell. So he sounds. This man needs therapy, Okay? I don't know why. I just think that is a weird answer to do You know, he I just want to be comfortable. Why did you say that? Why does he have to, you know? Do you know? He and Olivia came up with this Ted last I know they did. She pushed him to do this added they were at dinner. Hmm. And in hindsight, he questions whether it was some form of manifestation. For him to get out of her life and moved to the UK. Wow. No, But you know Ted's character, remember he I don't know what else? I don't know The character? Yes. Doesn't he leave his wife behind? Uh, yeah, yeah, it definitely foreshadowing. I feel he made that. Very clear, because yes, he does. He does leave someone behind to make this new adventure. So to be the sucker, Okay, so But again, those sometimes just having the thought to yourself for your diary is a better thought to have her a paragraph. No, I'm going chapter okay, Doodle and that, like you said to Juliet like when you have kids. Like they're going to read that later. And that's where I've always felt like when people start airing out their grievances in their relationships like this publicly, these famous people and then their kids get into their late twenties, and they got to read this stuff. I know you guys are reading way way too much into that. I Julia, your assessment. I'm correct heart broken and I was getting blind sight and he was being and wind. Blunt in that geeky reporter Got a lot of good quotes right? He did. Um okay. So people are all over the fact that Prince William when he called out the racism that the three black players for the UK team we're getting, you know, they were getting blamed that they lost the the World Cup. Yeah, Yeah, Just the three black guys, right? Yes. Okay. So what did William do Well, so, William, you know, said I am sickened by the racist abuse aimed at England. It's totally unacceptable that players have to endure this abhorrent behavior must stop now, and all those should be involved should be held accountable. And basically, Twitter backed up its seat and said, Okay, William, Where was this support for your sister in law? When the headlines in the papers? We're calling her all kinds of things, So here's what I'm gonna say. Uh huh. Maybe he's changed. Maybe there's growth. I want to look at the positive here like I don't want to go down there. Okay, Here's what really do Here's what's curious. No. British coverage in any of the anything about the fact that this is very Uh, you're protecting the future Queen. Yeah, it's the hypocrisy, but that's but that's Again. I wanted no follow ups in the sun. There's no I mean, and this was huge Pushback online people came for Prince William, and they're like, Hey, dude. Where was this When your husband was doing this with his wife, I am good Other your brother, your brother. Thank you. But here's that do that now for Megan. Now, dude. I mean, that would be the way to show he'd change is that he could just say okay, I'm going to go ahead and say And, you know, I feel nothing just crickets. So very strong about that. But then nothing. So Twitter was just sitting back in there. They're big. Not everybody's on Twitter. No, but a lot. There were other there were, you know they're having imposed. The Daily Beast had a story. There were The New York Times had something. It's like interesting..

"Me bring you in to tell the story of four little Kimmy Schmidt on and I know you're is taught. You have to be as tourney on this story as I am. Yeah, Partially. So the stories is she's earning his Ellie Kemper. She's a actually she's on the office. Remember hers? Erin on the office? I don't know She's to me like it's the type of person that you just look at and are happy because you look like just two. Seeing her face makes me happy. I don't know what it is. Maybe it's because I'm a big office fan, but apparently the Internet has no such no such attachments. On. There's nobody happy on the Internet. No, everybody's miserable and like we're like, Gosh, I can't understand why we can't solve these problems. Every time you go into social media, everyone's awful. I wonder what the cause could be. Ah, so hold of the rent. But so Ellie Kemper, an actress. She, um is in trouble now. Twitter trouble. She's about to be canceled in the middle in the midst of being canceled by not just Twitter, of course, but multiple large media organizations who have now decided to jump on this bandwagon. Um, the wait, Wait, wait, wait. She's waiting. She's in Twitter Jail. Has she done anything on Twitter? No. Nothing. She said. Anything on people are tweeting about nothing untrue. They have tweeted that she is the KKK Princess. On the KKK princess. Wow. Yes. And you get the types of headlines from and you knows a very reliable source. The Daily Beast. Yes, the offices Ellie Kemper was beauty queen of a racist ball. That's how it's being. Summarized. So the back story is she was crowned the queen of love and beauty. At what sort of sort of was referred to as the veiled Prophet Fair. Veiled Prophet Fair is something in ST Louis. Where that it was created back in the 18 seventies, I believe now little known fact about American history. Everything created in the 18 seventies was racist. All things in the 18 seventies raises, at least exert well, especially in the South. It's certainly most likely, Yes, certainly as it applies to today's society. Even the people we look at, you know as civil rights heroes of the 18 seventies, said things you would not feel comfortable saying today. Yeah, I says right now was. It does appear by all accounts that the early days of this particular fair were. It was created by very rich, white, powerful people, and many of them were Racists. There's some of the imagery of that time again in the 18 seventies. Uh, that was what I would say. Looks themed to seemingly theme towards of the KKK, Okay? So okay. All right. I don't think anyone is going back and saying, like, you know, it was a great A great founding was the founding of this particular event. I mean, it was looked. It's been looked at for a very long time is having a problematic history. Now, over time, as we moved into, you know, the 20th century If he came to be a problem, people started complaining about those sorts of themes and over. You know, eventually, black people became members of the organization. You know, later on, you know the seventies. You know, this is 20 years before Ellie Kemper was named the, uh, the queen of love and beauty at this particular point, right? In fact, the name was changed. Like all of this is ancient history. They changed the name to fair Saint Louis. Ah and Ellie Kemper in 1999 became the 105th. Girl a 90 s. She was 19 years old to be given the title of, you know, to win this little now. Wow. What started this contract? I watched her all these years and I didn't know she was a hidden clan member. Yeah, Yeah, no idea. You'll notice she was not alive in 18 77 not alive in 19. So she says So, she says, Have you seen ever certificate? No, I haven't. In fact, I She may have been born. Who knows? Maybe in Kenya. We don't know We're gonna find that out later s O. So what started this recent controversy, Blood? Is, you know some idiot on Twitter, Of course tweeting. This used the KKK princess and referring to a 2014 Atlantic article article in the Atlantic had excerpts from a book about this particular fair, saying it was problematic. Uh, you know, went through sort of a history of it did not reference. Ellie Kemper of the story was not about Ellie Kemper, but basically said, like this fair is not a good idea because it has a racist history. Then someone digs up. Hey, Ellie Kemper was The winner of this award at this fair, and now Ellie Kemper equals racism, I guess is how we how this thing works now. All of the problems with this analogy. She she what? She was 19 at the time. She it was the affair was not even the same fare was named something else. She was not around in the 18 seventies. She it was not a cake fair at the time. There were black members through, for some reason, wanted to join this. Racist organization. Many years later, in nothing for points to the idea at all that she had any racist feelings intent, and nothing like that, at all is even is even be exactly suit. What White America the racist White America says. Every time you Point out their hidden systemic racism stew right now, even the people cited in the article. Have come out and said No, Ellie Kemper is not a racist. There's no reason to believe she's a racist. The people who said the fair was racist. Are saying, like You don't understand this developed into a ST Louis tradition, and it really had nothing to do. Its roots were bad, but it was not like that. At this point. Also, most of the girls who participate in this particular event are not excited about it. They're doing it for their dads. Their dads have been, you know, may be part of this organization for a while, they're going along with raises these the people who who are saying the organization is right was racist at one time are saying this about her. So, yeah, I think on its surface plays as a very typical ridiculous cancel culture Example. Right. There's no reason to believe Ellie Kemper is a racist. She has never shown any signs of racism. It is a completely nonsensical story based on some idiot tweeting something they knew nothing about it. And then the experts have been just because just know she's not racist. This is not what to assume from this piece. Event and just because this happened what 20 some years ago? Uh, you think that just washes away all of the racism that she clearly Either knew or didn't know on either was or wasn't at the time. You just think it just washes all of that guilt away. First of all, there's no guilt. She should not feel guilty about this. But the second error secondary part and, of course, you know, I shall say she should should not feel guilty about this. I will not be surprised at all. If she's apologizing, though, By the end of the day, we should be clear about that. Of course she will be. This is, of course, the way she's gonna handle it now. Part of the reason I know she's gonna handle it that way, or I believe she will. Is because she's a big liberal. She's no conservative. She's a She's a big liberal. She's been all over talking about. She's not like I would say an incredibly politically active person but has been every every example you could find of her. Being political has been to the left. Her parents were wealthy people from ST Louis and have some, you know loose ties supposedly to some Republican policies, but She's not at all that way and is donated to like black lives matter. So that introduced you to the second layer of the story, and I think part of it, which is interesting to our audience and how we react to it because I think we would all agree on the surface. Ellie Kemper is completely innocent here. And this is Blake to blatantly terrible example of cancel culture. On the other hand, there is certainly a part of me. That sees someone who donates to black lives matter, an organization that is actively creating this world that does these things to people all the time. Cancels them for nothing all the time, right when you are on that side of the argument, and you create and manifest this society in this way and cheer it on, over and over and over again, are we really supposed to feel bad for you? And I write Are we supposed to? Are we supposed to get up and and and help you and then But there's a bigger part of me. Stew That just says, Isn't it time to have some ice cream? Like, you know, Pat says this every once in a while Pat Gray from factory and least she says, I just love it when liberals eat their own. And like, you know, I I go back and forth on this because I can feel You know, there's that sort of instinct, Animal instinct inside of you to say screw her. She if she helped build this and screw her she's gonna have to She made this bed. She's gonna have to lie in it. On the other hand, I think the right thing to do Right thing to do is to Say that she's not a racist because you know what she's not, and there's no reason to believe that she is This thing is bigger, though this left right thing that we talked about all the time. Blend in that, like, you know, Look, they go after the left on this stuff to constantly right? What? What?.

"Metro area medical centers. It's 7 40 as the Bidens walked along Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House in the late afternoon on the synagogue. You're Rations. Day, the new president ran off to the roadside to fist bump NBC personality L broker How does it through Mr President? The President greeted D. C Mayor Muriel Bowser a few minutes later, hours before the Biden Harris inauguration. Former President Trump left the White House for the last time is Commander in chief on Air Force one. He wished the Biden administration great success in his words and promoted his administration's accomplishments. We put it Position like it's never been before, Despite the worst plague to hit since, I guess you'd say 1917 over 100 years ago, the former president says he'll be back in some form. But Daily Beast senior columnist met, Lewis tells Dimitri he's not sure sure about Donald Trump remaining a powerful political figure. Well, I do think that the fact that he doesn't have Twitter and Facebook and Instagram. But mainly Twitter is gonna be a big problem for him. If you'd asked me that question, like a month ago, I would have said no Donald Trump is not going to go away. Quietly. He will stay relevant and he will intimidate people, mainly through Twitter. But without Twitter. I think that does do dramatic harm to his ability to stay relevant and to intimidate and scared. He's going to try. I think a big question is what does that the mainstream media do? So I'm not talking about Fox News or Newsmax or away. But the mainstream media do they get bored with Joe Biden and decide for ratings to cover Donald Trump? Or do they move on? And do they actually focus on the current president? I don't know the answer to that, but I think there's going to be a temptation for the mainstream media. To continue to elevate Donald Trump, just like they did when he was running for president in 2016. That's going to tell us a lot, I think about whether we can move on as a country and as a movement in the party, and will that affect the behavior of the many Republicans in the House and the 50 Republicans in the Senate, I think absolutely. Sadly, most of these politicians, their goal is really to get re elected, and it's the path of least resistance, and I think they are afraid of the Republican base again, mainly Be politically but also in some cases physically when it comes to things like voting to convict her voting for impeachment, So I do think that that will matter if it appears that Donald Trump is fading, that Donald Trump is no longer as relevant as he wants WASP, then I think that will give them a certain amount of courage and independence, and they're going to start to behave more like normal. If that doesn't happen if Donald Trump stays relevant if he continues to be able to intimidate them, then you can expect more of what we've seen these last several years. I think that Joe Biden is probably going to get all of his Cabinet confirmations. I don't see any big fights brewing. I guess Josh Holly is going to try to hold up. One would be the first since Reagan, the first president since Reagan, who will get all of his Cabinet nominees confirmed even near a tandem. Even Neera Tanden, because, remember, Neera Tanden is big sin. Is that she says, mean things on Twitter. I may not like the fact that she does that Donald Trump has just we've defined deviancy down so much it would be. It's gonna be really hard to make the case that near attendance, you know, use of Twitter is disqualifying when we've had. Donald Trump is president for the last four years, one of the problems I mean, it's someone You know who is a center right person? One of the many problems of Trump is is going to be almost impossible for Republicans to say anything about Joe Biden's administration. And not be hypocrites for saying it. What could Joe Biden do? That would be more egregious than anything that Donald Trump has done. Republicans find themselves in that difficult position of raising the dead or the deficit. It's going to be hard to find something you could criticize him for and not be a hypocrite. That's Daily Beast senior columnist and CNN contributor met Lewis on Skype. And by the way they discussed Neera Tanden. There she is the president's nominee to lead the office of Management and Budget, and she's facing fierce opposition from Senate Republicans still ahead, President Biden has signed a serious of executive orders from the Oval Office. That was just hours after the inauguration. We'll have another special report in a few minutes. Living under.
