S. then you have in other countries it is because of the actions the president took immediately on restricting travel from China the restrictions have since placed on Italy and on South Korea analysts say also the actions that are being taken by many companies I know many companies are now placing our travel restrictions on individuals until we know more about the incubation time the covet nineteen and on the the symptoms how long the disease last things of that nature some people are are of the of the mindset senator Blackburn that the corona virus outbreak could have an effect on the the upcoming presidential election of the presidential nominating process though with with Bernie Sanders now out and he was or or at least seemingly mathematically out I don't wanna say these out loud but seemingly mathematically out it will I I would have thought he would have done better on super Tuesday as he is the man who is advocating for universal health care and that would be something that that some supporters of Bernie Sanders think would help when it comes to the outbreak of of the corona virus are are you surprised that or or are you concerned that the corona virus could have an effect on the process of electing our next president I I don't think that it will I think that knowing Tennesseans and I think many Americans are like them and they feel that our country three is when you look at the issues of security whether it is economic security national security border security and access to services like healthcare and making certain that we are addressing issues like the environment with clean air clean water that many of the stepsisters ministration have take has taken our steps in the right direction and they are pleased with that and people are going to go to the polls they are going to vote for Donald Trump it looks like it is said to senator Marsha Blackburn a Republican from Tennessee and I I wanted to kind of learn the last question here Fauria switch topics kind of a hard pivot here one of your colleague senator Marco Rubio left a video message on his Twitter page last night let me just play a portion of this you can see what he's advocating here and I'll get your reaction things
"trump white house" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Thanks so much for being here. Thank you for having avenue great to be with you. My my goal is to ask harder questions here than you had at the white in the White House. Press poll well. I'm glad that this is a really quick interview. I'm going to walk away now before. He so the conservative base. Just adores you. You fought for the president who fought for our country so unbelievably affectively eloquently as White House. Press Secretary for the young people. Listen to our podcast. Let's start just with your career kind of trajectory. How did you end up as as White House press secretary always love hearing the stories honestly? I sort of kind of fell into the job. I've always been more on the behind the scenes side of campaign pain and consulting and I'd been running campaigns All over the country particularly my home state of Arkansas and I had been working for my dad's campaign for a while and when he got out of the race I was looking at the field and determined not only was Donald Trump the best person to beat Hillary Clinton but I liked a lot of the things he was saying so I'd gotten to know quite a few people in the campaign over the course of the primary and so I signed on with President Trump's campaign in February of two thousand sixteen so pretty early in the primary and one day I got a phone call and they said hey would you be willing to go on a TV tomorrow. And I said sure why not and so I did in my role. Oh morphed from kind of senior adviser to more of a surrogate I ended up spending the majority of my time on the trump campaign doing tv work and after that Became came the principal. Deputy Press Secretary Sean. Spicer and Shortly after the administration ended up as the press secretary. You always handled yourself so well I mean the the press is more dishonest. And I think we've ever seen in our nation's history they're committed towards destruction and activism. Not Actually telling the truth. Can you walk us through. What would a typical day in the White House be? I mean there would be probably not the typical day is no typical day but just scheduling. How early would you get in? I get these questions all the time from people. I don't really know. Well I think you nailed it right away. There is no typical day in the White House. But that's one of the things I loved about it And certainly with this president because he has such a unique and different style and he controls so much of the message. Not just for the White House but for the country He sort of sets the tone of what we're we're going to talk about for the day so sometimes you wake up in the morning and you think that the focus is going to be on one thing and by nine. Am It's on four different things that you never even saw coming But the usually we would probably get started morning producers for Marine show start calling anywhere around five. Am so you'd be up at forty forty five five am yeah. You didn't have to be in the office at that time. But they'll start emailing and calling. I mean one of the things that people I think don't understand. Is that the press secretary. Okay everybody sees kind of the behind the podium part but they don't realize that every reporter pretty much in the world has your email and cell phone number and so you're accessible twenty four hours a day day to thousands of reporters all over the place and they call they email and they're constantly looking for information or statement And we kind of try to divide some of it up but a lot of the morning show folks start calling pretty early in the morning Looking for guidance comments on something that may have happened last night or things that they're talking talking about making sure that they still have the administration's take on whatever is carrying the news that morning I try to be in the office by seven. Thirty and Pretty much off to the races from there then the president never sleeps. I mean so. You don't sleep if he doesn't sleep you don't sleep. He works until eleven or twelve every night right and as you know. He's up Brighton. Early and thirties. It's not a surprise to sometimes get a call from the president by you know six six thirty in the morning as well. I mean from people that have worked in other White House. They say this pace is unlike anything they've ever seen. Is that probably fair to say I think so. I mean you know. I've talked to quite a few reporters that have covered multiple pull administrations and a lot of them are going to be really board In about five years when Donald Trump is not president anymore because You know I don't think you could compare pair anything to the pace in the schedule that he I was talking with a reporter from some outlet and he asked me and I couldn't answer but you you could answer a better. He said why is it. Seemed like things are changing quicker under trump than any other president. I just there's so much not just policy but just differences of trajectory projector. And do you think it's obviously the team that president trump has around him. You being a part of it but it all starts with him rice lately. It's all driven by him. He is somebody who wants to get things done. He's a businessman who comes any says we have a problem. We'll let's fix it and he doesn't go the traditional route of let's figure out. Let's get seventeen committees to discuss it. And he's like we have a problem. We know how to fix it. Just go out and do it And that was one of the great things about working for him. He didn't care if you you were. You know the press secretary or whatever else if you were there and he thought you were capable. He'd be like Sarah Take it on. Go do it and I remember one day. He asked me to call the national security adviser and do this. He has Sarah. Can you make a phone call or not. Yes sir he goes then just get it done. It was like Yes sir. And he's is that way with everything he bureaucracy almost exactly and he's Sudbury refreshing thing for Washington something that Washington so desperately we needed was donald trump to come in shake things up and say you know. We don't have to make everything take years to happen. Let's get some stuff done and let's deliver on the promises that we made during the campaign and he does that every single day. So you'd be up at four forty five. Am You also raising kids right and they help get you up at five hundred tests. So you're dealing with all that you're in. You're in the office if you will the White House by seven thirty dealing with everything and your days could go 'til eight nine ten eleven so you're on four or five hours of sleet and if you say one thing wrong or one common misplaced. It's a story it's the end of the world and people have to realize though that you were the fatigue league right that sets in for any human being right. How did you deal with that? And that's what I you know. I we like to think that we you know work at a breakneck taste turning point but we're not running the White House and you know we do red eye flights and all this my heart goes out to you and Hogan I'm like you guys are under the gun and after after five or six days of this in a row or you only on three hours of sleep. I mean that's that's really really hard and just you have to continue to be precise what what inside can you share. Share to how. You're able to to work through that. Because I mean imagine how much harder it is for the president. He's literally the most powerful man in the world. And everything he says and does is so scrutinized That it's the stress on us is a lot but what he's carrying is unlike anything. Any of US could have imagined particularly given the amount of incoming coming that he takes the a constant barrage of attacks that he has to live under For the rest of us we love our country and we love the president. We love the results and the things that he's delivering on. And you know it was an honor and a privilege to get to play a small part report in what he was doing and I had an incredible incredible husband. who was patient enough to be supportive throughout that process and At the end of the day my faith is another huge part of what I think powers and and defines who we are and gives us the confidence we need to go in and face some of the toughest days In that building and you know those different jobs getting in shape is just about losing weight. It's about learning healthier habits and feeling.

"Mr Giuliani president trump secretary pump. HEO Secretary Perry Chief of Staff Mulvaney a lot of senior officials. Everyone was in the loop. Trump's ambassador famously implicating everyone in this Ukraine plot which trump impeached and yet all those people are still hiding from testifying. Bolton pompeo Giuliani Mulvaney. Who actually blames trump boss for his own silence? President trump has said that he'd like to see you in secretary pump testify in the Senate. Well part of me really wants to. We'll do whatever the president they want us to do is what it comes down to. So if the Senate decides to take live witnesses and the president's directs us to do it we will if drexel we won't whatever he directs and congressional Republicans relied on that defiance complaining in the House about the lack of fact witnesses and now of course pushing for a Senate trial notice this without any fact witnesses and more than any other issue Democrats quarter man for trump trial now boils down to something. Marvin Gaye asked so long ago. Can I get a witness or as the rolling stones put it. Can I get a witness or as the Canadian singer Song. Real put it in his two thousand sixteen song. Can I get a witness a at one point here is clearly people. Ask for witnesses a lot. And if you don't usually see trials without them that may remind you that this is a basic part of any fair trial but tonight we want to dig into another piece of this which is for most of these trump officials testifying before congress as a witness trial or not only important for fact finding it is a job requirement literally tape. Mike pompeo's said was in the loop who has defied these probes. He is of course secretary of state. Stay so remember like all people in both parties have held this job. He has a constitutional duty to face. Congress as a witness even on matters far less important important than this new trial potentially remove the president from office in fact we checked on Peyot himself testified at least six times already as secretary Tariam state. Thank you MR chairman. Thank you Senator Menendez. Well appreciate you having here today. I look forward to our conversation. I thank you for the opportunity. It'd be with you today. Thanks for the discuss. The administration's twenty twenty budget. I WanNa just walked through now. Two Years Administration. I'm now nine days short of one year my time the secretary of state. Thank you senator. Gordon thank you Senator Feinstein. Thanks for the opportunity to be here. I'm I'm really happy to be. This is an important issue happy to do it as you can see. He does the regular testifying on routine matters like there the budget or oversight of national security but then zero times zero times has he ever as you see testified about this Ukraine impeachment scandal. What you're looking at the screen are the inverted priorities of this trump state State Department and Democrats? Say what you are looking at is in that big zero circumstantial evidence of Palm Peyot in on the cover and some of this may have gotten lost all of the impeachment fighting but Congress is a CO equal branch cabinet officials. Have a duty to testify. They could be forced to which is part of why I so. Many trump officials have face congress even as the president talks up defiance and maybe it looks a little guilty for the administration to argue. They could testify under oath on everything else but doc the conduct that got him impeached. Now this fight let me be clear is not over. The issue of these officials testimony will come up in the Senate trial because senators have the power to request witnesses. Right in the middle. In fact in Clinton's trial there was a vote to make these three people come back and testify again. Today's argument would be stronger for witnesses. This is who never testified in the first place. Take Attorney General Bar. He's faced Congress on other issues just like pompeo needs face. The press publicly denying he talked about anything relating to the Biden's or his son with trump call notes showed trump pledged bar would help out the president ask you to publicly that thin in him regarding that Ukraine call. And it's so I.

the President and the party if they wish while also being truthful or while also acknowledging there are things that he shouldn't do while standing up to that do you see any hope for that in your calling I I do I hope that eventually they will see the importance of this to the future of the country and the treating these things as real issues I a lot is going to depend on how the Democrats handle this they really need to find some there I've spent time now talking to people who are you know this they don't love everything about trump but there they wanna hear more and they don't believe there's are there yet I think there's plenty of there but they're not winston so it's GonNa Lot's going to depend on how methodical and transparent Democrats are as they go forward I wish there was only one committee instead of five Ns because then you've got subpoenas all over the place and it just feeds into this they're beating up on the poor man he kind of feeds all of this he he called for this when he called and said publicly that Russia I mean excuse me that China should look we've already done Russia look in but when China should doc to investigate it it's you can't deny it and the damage he's done to Ukraine I was just there for the last elections their parliamentary elections and the people are were so enthusiastic about the potential of Celeski who is someone who is young unexperienced coming in with a I'm going to tackle the corruption endemic and then our president gets up there and sucks him into this domestic political thing is undermining him he keeps talking. about how corrupt Ukraine is it's it's it's basically Putin's talking points yeah it's damning the way you put it in the evidence shows the president bringing in not only the more leaders but his own attorney general Rudy Giuliani and others pence perhaps into this whole plot to there's a lot as you say to be uncovered parented I think I heard it is yeah Rick Perry we have more on that thank you for that fact check we can mix in the very serious times for public with with some sense of humorous perspective and I will remind viewers what we've been listening to this very sober and serious conversation is a former Giuliani a Republican governor in good standing and a prosecutor not exactly a resistance panel when it comes to just assessing the facts of what is a raid against this President Christine Todd Whitman Bear Burger and Ken Friedman thanks to each of you thank you break and then yes as mentioned Rick Perry in on the act what does he have to do with David corners here later and Neil Cacho joins me tonight on the second whistle blower mistake for impeachment and later a very special interview with a look inside the White House I'm already Melbourne you're watching the beat on MSNBC hey msnbc listeners it's me Chuck Rosenberg this week on the oath I sit down with former United States attorney for the northern district of Alabama and current MSNBC legal analyst Joyce fans we know that their issues with the system but we have to work towards making get a better system Joyce Vance was a career federal prosecutor in Birmingham Alabama before ascending to the top job as the United States attorney in that office good prosecutor I understand that we have to always be open to examining our behavior to make sure that the system works please join me for that conversation with former United States attorney Joyce vans available now wherever you get your podcasts the president trump is on defense over several different fronts tonight bowing to this military pressure from Turkey new subpoenas over Ukraine and again shifting his defense in an impeachment probe that could define his presidency so it is worth keeping track of the evidence here one piece of evidence suggests trump knew his Ukraine plot was wrong because he vigorously denied originally insisting that rather than calling for an investigation of Biden and the call was congratulatory in about some sort of general corruption tonight I had was largely congratulatory was largely corruption but my complaint is always been withhold again and I'll continue to withhold until such time it is Europe and other nations contribute to Ukraine that claim was undercut by evidence from trump's own White House and trump tried to shift that famously calling for more foreign collusion China started investigation into the bye was what happened in China is just about as bad as what happened with with Ukraine Democrats said that was effort to launder and try to normalize this kind of plotting and by the time trump was privately conferring with House Republicans heading into this weekend on Friday he was back to admitting the plot was a bad thing but blaming it on his employees Rick Perry saying Perry made him doing now that is an irrelevant argument. If this plot is a crime which is a judgment left to the Senate it's not a defense to say your subordinate told you to do it don't you wonder is this even okay with Rick Perry well it turns out you can blame it on the energy secretary because he don't mind and he don't care and that's why this is starting to look like a Milli Vanilli defense because you got to blame it on some absolutely I asked the President Multiple Times Mr President we think it is in the United States and in Ukraine's best interest that you and the president of Ukraine have conversations that you discuss the player there what does this argument reveal about where the impeachment debate is headed David Gore so you doing okay how are you I wanna ask you that I wanna ask you at the middle of defense and wearing patriots headed so stick around what we're back in thirty seconds okay so turn your mother Jones David Corn David you knew it was a thirty second break sorry it was your news addict I'm sure you're you're checking the headlines what does it tell you that you have these defenses coming well you know I heard that he wants to be the joker and he realizes that chaos is his best friend he likes chaos so we go from I didn't do it too I did do it too I'm doing it right now in front of you as we speak to parry made me do it and it's about Ukraine it's about now it's about liquefied nitrogen gas it's about the lydon's it's about servers he just wants this ball of confusion the temptations song to be out there so it's really hard for people to get a hold of what's going on and once your theory basically is what he gives up in logic because saying I did something it's okay I'm proud of it is very different than saying it's so bad I have to blame someone but what you giving logic he gets back in what he gets back clutter and chaos it's not a completely there's no complete narrative through line here people who are you and I follow this stuff day in day out nanosecond by Nanosecond to a lot of people viewing blakely to is base who watching from afar or not watching watching Fox which is barely mentioning this they just see him putting out all sorts of different stories and it gets kind of muddy and so they fall back onto what is their natural bias which is I'd like the president they must be going after him for bad reasons and I can't I would never in the middle of the series newscast reach for an obscure pop culture reference never but what you're describing sounds like the South Park Mark Chewbacca defense the South Park Yeah on South Park they depict a defense lawyer Johnnie Cochran using illogic around the character of Chewbacca in Star Wars to simply confuse the jury so that by the end of the closing presentation it's not that the defendant looks more innocent in this case Donald trump but rather that enough people just get confused and get turned off they don't pay attention and we saw this with the trump Russia skin no in the sense that it was in some ways confusing had a lot of different elements to it you know somebody had to write a book to explain it at it took a book maybe to explain it in block man I'm not GonNa blow you up but if you think that the takeaway was confusing you spent a few years trying to explain it in in print and on air why on you man it's on the fact that within the media as as we have these days it's very easy to come along and spin out lies alternative realities fake facts slipway Devon Nunez did to the estimation on the House intelligence committee trying to bring up all sorts of diversionary subjects and that the media feels compelled to cover that to some extent even if they say it's not true it's still creates an impression that you know that that is indeed confusing to people who don't right close attention that may be why a process like impeachment and a Senate trial which becomes the biggest story in the nation for a while may actually be the scariest thing the president really wanted to be impeached like he used to claim he would just say bring it on instead they're stonewalling their counterattacking trying four different things thrown at the wall may be in that focus some of the confusion argument works last we'll see I got to fit in a break Mr Corn thank you as always good to be with you pretty syrup ahead the second whistle blower and the dangers that are posed some people in Government Neil cajal live joins me for opening arguments and of next a very important deep dive on impeachment something very special I'm GonNa show you after the break and now we turn to a very newsworthy guests the current council for President Trump J. Secolo thanks for joining me thanks for having me I appreciate it absolutely congress is considering impeaching president trump for asking Ukraine to investigate a domestic rival Joe Biden as you know the evidence shows and trump now admits he did that ah so for starters do you see this now isn't impeachment debate where you basically agree on what happened but your defense is that what happened is in your view okay it's it's two things one is the house is still not moved to a formal impeachment proceedings so I think to be clear Nancy Pelosi when she the press conference a week and a half ago two weeks ago now said that you know this is a more formal investigation but the fact is they haven't taken it to the floor of the House so the House has not instituted a impeachment proceedings so that's number one so nothing's really changed for the last months we've been really an investigation as.

"National Economic Council by this time remember Cohn was already on the way out at Goldman sets the meeting with Donald Trump happened after I already made my decision. So I was in motion. Did anyone say to you? However, Gary this president is anomalous, and he is a human third rail. And what are you thinking about? Did anyone say that of course? And what you say I said, look, the president of the United States is asked me to work for him. I am going to go in and serve and do the best. I can for my country. Remember, I am taking an oath to the constitution of the United States to protect defend not noted the president United States. And I am going to go serve the people of the United States. The Trump White House turned out to be stranger than cone or anyone could have imagined. So look the White House in itself is amazing or news -ation, many ways, it's the crazies organization during any presidency, and it's amazing organization under any presence under Trump workflow was unpredictable protocol was ignored turnover was endemic people started calling Gary Cohn the adult in the room disciplined focused and most of all dedicated to tax reform goal. He shared with the president, even if their numbers didn't line up. So you look this is not a secret that at one point. He wanted a fifteen percent corporate tax rate. And I just told them a fifteen percent corporate tax rate will not work will not work will not raise enough money or politically it just a politically in be algebraic. I mean when you start understanding. Numbers or what a fifteen percent tax rate means we have to manipulate so many other things in the code. So I personally would have settled for twenty five but corporates would settled for twenty five. He then said, look, okay, I could live with twenty. But if you if you he was talking to Newton tonight the time he's you guys started twenty you'll end up going higher. I know you know, you can't negotiate that. Well, I said if we started twenty will end up to twenty we'll hold it. We'll hold it. And we were holding twenty. He was the one that kept willing. He was willing to hire. Someone ended up twenty to twenty one. Yeah. Twenty-one cone also helped manage the political process making sure the president's habit of insulting people via Twitter didn't undermine congressional support for the tax plan. Wouldn't we were really working taxes hard? There was no way I could deal with the present going after any one of those Republic..
"trump white house" Discussed on The Beat with Ari Melber
"Hey, everyone listening to our podcast. This is Ari. And in addition of thanksgiving, the other big thing this week was Donald Trump being exposed for something that we associate quite frankly with Terry and dictators an attempted prosecution of his political opponents, Hillary Clinton and a key obstruction witness James Komi, as I've been reporting that would be blatantly unconstitutional. His own lawyers warned him it could lead to the I word impeachment now and this bonus episode you're going to listen to some of our key reporting on this story with key experts. And I've argued it's actually the most significant legal scandal to hit the Trump White House since we learned that Trump was fine was trying I should say to get Bob Muller fired. As always, I hope you enjoy the podcast. And if you like it leave us a comment or a star rating, we appreciate five stars or anything. You think is fair. We begin tonight with breaking news on the most significant legal scandal to hit this White House since the report that Donald Trump tried to fire. Bob muller. This is truly a bombshell President Donald Trump tried to order the Justice department to prosecute not one but two of his biggest adversaries Hillary Clinton. James Komi this story breaking in the New York Times late today. The story is that in the spring. Donald Trump told his White House counsel, Don Mcgann that he wanted the DOJ officials to explicitly prosecute Hillary Clinton and James Komi. So that right. There is a potentially illegal act, and that is quite important given that obstruction is still under investigation this White House. Now, what happened next is also important, Don Mcgann, according to this New York Times report refused and then went on to try to show Donald Trump in detail. Why this was not only a bad idea, but potentially impeachable bad idea? He has White House lawyers write this memo that you're looking at basically that is describing the time saying that if they went forward this the consequences would be damaging and yes would include. Quote, possible impeachment. Now that right there is a big deal. It is usually, of course, Donald Trump's critics and adversaries who are talking about his potential impeachment. We don't use the I word lightly on this show because impeachment is an extreme constitutional remedy, and we don't even know if Donald Trump read that memo, but we do know, according to New York Times that it was his own lawyers and his chief counsel, Don Mcgann, saying, Mr President, if you do this you could be impeached, and that's not all the time reporting that Donald Trump would go on to continue to privately agitate for these investigations of Hillary Clinton, obviously his chief rival in politics and James Komi, his former FBI director. Now this news. I want to be clear with you is a scale way beyond anything else we have seen in legal controversies with Donald Trump. And that's saying something you may recall, of course, that he did attempt to get Bob Muller fired. That was wrong. It may not have been lawful that something under debate. But there is a debate to be had there because the commander in chief has. Such big powers over his agencies like the DOJ tonight. I wanna tell you before we get to our guests, and we have some great guests on this. This is a different category than even the removal of special counsel Mueller. This is a report tonight for the first time at the present United States actively and explicitly tried to prosecute Hillary Clinton a political opponent..

"I grant a waiver for no Francisco solicitor general to participate in matters in which Jones day. His former law firm represents a party. Now. Why does he get permission to do that? Why is he excused from the ethics rules that otherwise blocked him from doing that for very good reasons? Do know doesn't say no reasons, given there's just this terse pronouncement that he is excused. And this document until today has been a secret which itself is a story. The White House is supposed to maintain an online list where they essentially make a public notice of things like this for some reason, the when they did for no Francisco wasn't put on the list. These are all the things they've posted online. You can say they're posted alphabetically, no franscisco should be right there between fours grin Dennis and Gordon Haggerty. Lisa. But he's not there. Nevertheless crew to their credit obtained this document. And so as of tonight, we can now tell we can now see for the first time that the Trump White House has been maneuvering, so if rod Rosenstein is fired or quits, the guy from the law firm that is representing the Trump campaign in the Russia investigation will be allowed to oversee to take over the whole Russian estimation. Now, we have posted that document online. If you want to see it at our website motto blog dot com, but it is crew that obtained this for the first time in credit to them for getting it and for making it public and it's worth knowing about right? It's it's a it's worth knowing about it, and it's own right. I also think this is just a good reminder at this point in the news cycle, and in this moment in history, just in general, keep your headlights on. Right now, keep your headlights on for for this next week, even after the election. I mean, even just this story here about the solicitor general about the guy who would take over the Muller investigation, if they fire rod Rosenstein, I mean, this is already looking a little bit nuts. Right. And they may try to do some nut stuff. They may try to make some of these big controversial moves all of a sudden before the confetti is hit the ground next week. And with this one. Honestly, I mean, I don't know how this gets resolved. I mean, I have a feeling I know why they kept it secret all these months, but I don't know how this gets fixed, particularly if they're going to try to sort of spring, this sort of thing on us. So nobody knows until it happens that the solicitor general is going to be allowed to do this. Once they fire Rosenstein, I mean, this is just whether or not you have any sense of how the legal ethics on something. Like, this would honestly work. This is like the Rachel maddow's show is in big trouble. The Rachel maddow's in Madison is involved in some big financial scandal. And there's going to be an investigation. And then I go and get a waiver. So that I am allowed to oversee the investigation into this big scandal at the Rachel maddow's show. It's like why what's the problem? I got a waiver. It turns out it's fine. I can be impartial. Why wouldn't I be able to investigate this fully? But that's what they may be trying to do to put the whole molar investigation under a whole different kind of control in very short order so watch that. We are now four days out from the election. It does almost feel more like a presidential election this year. Right. Even though there's no presidential race on the ballot this year. And as we're getting down to the wire hair down to these last four days, we are seeing a lot of legal wrangling related to the election as well. Last night on the show we highlighted too. Big standout voting rights cases, voting rights, crises really, where federal judges decided at the last minute that they would not way in to help..

"And then you're back at the White House the next day at five AM. But by were six AM. So you you live the news. I mean, that is your life and frankly, it's not just your life. It's your entire family's life, right? If you if you happen to have one, how to deal with it, what do I have a wife who used to work in the business? So she understand we never had to have a conversation about the kind of sacrifice this takes because she knows it and thank God. She does. Yeah. But you know, it's it's tough. We have a young son who's starting to realize underplay the cutest hit in the world. I can't even begin to describe how does he know six. Okay. Yes. So he he's starting to realize that I'm not around on the weekends and stuff, but you, you know, it's it's a sacrifice, but it's the greatest job in the world. Do you miss big things like firstly, a school? So we time shift alarm start getting. So we, we time shift the holidays couch if we have to work. On thanksgiving, and this is true for anywhere. This happened when I worked at NPR too. If you have to work on thanksgiving, you celebrate thanksgiving. The next Thursday, Saturday, whatever. So this latest go round. I had to work on his first day of school. So I took him ended up taking him to school on his second day of school, and I pretended as if his second day of school was actually his first. What is it that we took all the pictures, you know, made a big deal of walking up to the front door and you know he was kids as long as they're loved. They don't carry, you know, it's, it's, it's good to go. What about you Katie? I don't have a six year old or. I just have a husband. I saw this morning while running. I know he told me what your hours like. I mean, I just I don't even think of our. I mean, I guess today, for instance, we're emailing as early as like six, forty, five, you know, just talking to sources talking to each other about like what we think we want to do like what we think is going on and then you just work through the day you the other night when I had, I did a McCain story and the other story on NAFTA. I think I was there through nine PM delight. Shut off. I was there and I was like, we trying to get the lights back on. Yeah, so and then like tomorrow, for instance, I fly to Evansville than Charlotte the next day and then fly back on Friday night to cover the funeral at the federal for John McCain on Saturday. So it's like that is all work and you take downtime when you can get it, you really see. Like if it's a slower day, you know. Yesterday, I think was felt slower, and sometimes it feels torturous. 'cause like what there's nothing like you learned your metabolism completely changes, and I'm sure you're the same way like I've always wanted to cover the biggest story in the world. And right now, this is the biggest story in the world. I am not always. When I was I was last year I think I came here like my first week on the job which was crazy talk. I was like, they first time on the show was that we got the correspondence. It wasn't my first time because last year when I was a feature writer and that was like amazing, like writing Washington in the Trump. Covering writing about like Saudi princes and all this fun night and the Trump hotel Trump. Yeah. Like Trump hotel at night. So, I mean, I'd I'd always gravitated toward features and profiles, and it's just not something I ever thought I would do, and they asked me to do it after Glenn. Thrush was taken off the beat like a few weeks later, they asked me completely. I thought out of the blue. They actually Elizabeth you Miller bureau chief. I had bronchitis and I was like trying to recover. I was really sick and she calls me into office and she's like, you're a good reporter. So you know what this is about. No. Like a great way to start off the conversation. Yeah. You have, you know, at the says that I have no idea. Yes. Like, are you covering the White House? And I think I said something like you couldn't think of anybody else like hesitation. I mean, no, I was..

"So what will you create? Hey tamra, hey, Dominica all week long. Red Cavanaugh will face his Senate confirmation hearings. Yeah, he's President Trump's nominee for the supreme court, and there are going to be a lot of questions about how he could transform the supreme court for generation. The NPR politics podcast will be following those hearings and we'll hop in the studio every day to break down what you need to know. So you are obviously the heel for the president in your now, part of his narrative and part of his storyline, right? How does that affect you in your work? Knowing that you are a character in this plot arc as well? I mean, I think for a lot of us it's uncomfortable. I mean, it's weird to even talk about it right now. It's just instinctive like you don't want to talk about it as if our character. But when he does things like called individual reporters or institutions, you have no choice. He's the president and he's dragged you into it. And you know, I think a lot of reporters and like I haven't always been perfect about it to like, we will tweet things that will say, well, look at this. You know, the flags are up at the White House, but they're down at the monument. Wow, this is jarring. And you know, that's people in the White House watch that. And they take that as at a to'real ising and you know, I, I do think to be perfectly honest and transparent. Like reporters are humans too, and like sometimes they cross the line in the White House pays really close attention to that, and and they, it builds their argument that we. Are willing to be characters and crossed the line before. Do I think I have on Twitter, maybe. I think there was one time I I I did and it was something about reproductive rights. I think just to be honest, I think I just re tweeted something and I was just, I was like, I'm I, I think what I did was I said something about, I'm from a rural area. My high school had a daycare. We had absence only education. I worry about the women and children in those communities having access to education and services. And you've got some blowback. Yeah, it's just kinda like it. People watch you so close. It's hard to do. We do in this era where the president has made to pursuit of truth a partisan enterprise. Do you know what I mean? So I think now more than ever it's really incumbent upon reporters Katie saying to not let yourself be come part of the story when they're yourself, be baited, like, don't let they, and that's something he understands to is the art of the bait and the. Visors who helped him write as tweets or get like they all understand that. And it's really easy for them to get. I mean, there are a lot of reporters in Washington covering the White House and not everybody is perfect all day long. And you know what? I try not to do anymore on air. I try not to in this really, really fix broadcast. I don't read the tweets anymore. I try not to the full tweets stuff that isn't part pertinent the Trump tweets. Because in the beginning, you know, cable news, it's another tweet from the president. Let me read all four, four of them. And so now filled with untruths, the stuff that's not edifying or true, I don't try. I don't try to give voice to. I only try to stick to the pertinent stuff, and that is my way of trying to stick to what is real, what is true and to not get baited into whatever. Yeah. I mean when he drags throughout the lacrosse strategy such like it's like, okay, you know back to work, you know, you know, speaking about like not being baited as members of the press because they wanna bait, I think so long and hard about one particular White House correspondent at. CNN Jim Acosta who was taken up this enemy of the press back and forth as his cause. I in my heart of journalistic cards, think that's not the right way to handle it. Are there conversations about the right way to handle the enemy of the press stuff and how much you should be in that storyline amongst the White House press corps. You know, every every administration seems to have that reporter who is sort of known as being the thorn in its side, right?.
"trump white house" Discussed on It's Been a Minute with Sam Sanders
"And then I just say it like as of this moment, here's what we know this could change, but you know things in this White House. Things are true until they aren't true. How much is that? How different is that from the last administration? Oh, it's night and day. I mean, I remember during the Obama administration, you would get a. Sense of how the week was going to play out on a Sunday. They would get well, not the whole schedule, but you'd get a good road map. Yeah, they would use the Sunday shows to message. You know what they wanted to talk about that week where the agenda was headed, and I'm there was some White House staffers in the Obama administration who would apologize for last minute changes to the schedule. I'm very sorry to have to do. Yeah, exactly. And that's just not the way in granted every White House takes on sort of the personality of the president. And so we know the president enjoys chaos. And so this White House in just the way to operate is chaotic and that it becomes. Staffers don't. Oh, for sure. I don't. I think that they have learned to live in it. Do they ever tell you off the record or indicate or show any emotion that would indicate that they aren't happy? Are deflated are tired? Our weary that they, I don't. I don't get that feeling a lot. I get the feeling that they feel like they're entrenched warfare, and I feel like they really believe that the president has accomplished a lot on behalf of the people who voted for him. Okay. You know, they can live with tax cuts. They like that. They like the relocation of the embassy to Jerusalem oughta folks like the two economy's doing well, yeah, a lot of people do, but a lot of people are also going to be hurt by that. So you know what he hasn't delivered is this wall that he largely, you know, ran on and whatnot. So I think that those staffers feel as they reflect the president's grievance that the press has not given him enough credit and that's energizing for them. I think. And you know what's different about that versus other administrations, because every White House has staffers that feel beat down just by the car. It's different though in having talked to people who worked for George W Bush in president, former President Obama is that those two men, I think, engendered loyalty and inspired. There's Daf in a way that Donald Trump does not. So whereas I feel like a lot of the people in the current White House are driven to a certain degree like by the kind of grievance you talk about and by some of the president's policies, I don't necessarily at least in my conversations, get the sense that they are driven to do their best work on behalf of the man in who sits knee Oval Office in the same way that people who worked for President Bush no vomited will part of point. This is part of a strategy that right, like he is someone from his reality TV days in real estate days. He likes to have competing factions and interests. Yeah, working for him. And so like if you're doing that, you're actually aren't trying to inspire loyalty your. Trying to inspire competitiveness and that dick like another source in question. Like when you get leaks from sources, are you saying to yourself? Well, how is this faction of the White House trying to attack this other faction like the humor sent questioned sourcing, how do you work through that?.

"Believe after the confirmation of break Cavanaugh, the supreme court nominee, but now the president is Katie mentions in real time is confirming. Reporting, so like, okay, this is one example of how different out of the ordinary. This administration is usually when a departure you hear buzz about it. I and it's confirmed. And then there's like an official statement. This was just a tweet, and this happens a lot. A lot of times what happens is the president will say something, he'll tweet something. And so what happens is you have the White House staff trying to make the reality on the ground reflect mayor has said or tweeted about, and then sometimes you'll catch Sarah Sanders out there doing the world's hardest job trying to keep up with the show. And so for instance, with this issue, this Mcgann forthcoming resignation this morning, Sarah said, when we have an announcement will let you know suggesting that they were working through the process of coming up with an announcement. Sure. There was a plan to get in front of this, but yet the president, it appears cut it all off. Well, personnel stuff. He, he keeps things really close to his chest a lot to he knows that stuff leaks. And with the marchers or hires or appointments, you often have little visibility into it because he understands like to your point about knowing where the cameras are. I mean, the man is like the foremost meat, like media scholar, generation of anybody's done. I mean. He knows how the big reveal works. He knows that in like he's hone that skill over three, four decades. He knows how to kick start a new cycle. He knows how to barrel. Fourth, when things are not looking good, like the McCain flag thing feels like that happened in April. You know, he Cohen and metaphor fill, right? You happen to twelve and I think we like just don't really. I don't know what the most interesting thing about covering this president is going to rallies. I've covered morale. Remember in watching him work through a message and the start. I remember him doing this with the NFL stuff to where he would attack the players for the for the silent protests and he would he would say align and if it didn't get the right kind of applause, he would. He would switch up Cindy. Say it again and let it land always said he was like comic trying out new before the comedy special? Yeah, like the comic that goes to the dingy comedy club on Monday night and just tries aligns out and he fancies himself that he's not a politician, but he, he's discourse. You audition. And like all good politicians. He knows exactly where his base is exactly what motivates them. And that's one of the reasons why he says what he does about immigration about the NFL he is, you know, he's trying to position himself as a as a nationalistic culture warrior. Yeah, and hasn't really moved beyond the skills if you want to call them that that made him successful as a candidate because his supporters haven't required anything other from heckling. Exactly. So just thinking about this news today with Mcgann and talking about how a lot of times Trump staffers are trying to keep up with Trump, how does that affect sourcing? Like is it harder to talk? I wanna know what's what? Knowing that things are changing. Things are true until they aren't, and it took me a while to be able to figure out how to say that on television..

"Almost change. The photographers are in charge of the movies, so I don't. It's like turnovers get really possessive territorial. They're not like they'll pull pranks on each other. When we were in the Europe trip, they put like a big bottle of lotion on somebody like, well, he was sleeping in van there. You had really careful. There's a lot of downtime. So they come up with creative ways. Interesting. Yeah, that's true. And you have to always it's like it's like being at a slumber party. When you're eleven years old, put your hand in warm water if you fall asleep up through the fourth estate. Exactly. So that's, oh, sorry. What's? Oh. And it can be reported out or just like a behind the scenes. This is a behind the scenes story that isn't necessarily crazy, but at the time told me so much about who Donald Trump is. So it was my first encounter with them because I didn't cover the campaign on the road. But when he came to Washington for Ted Cruz is stopped the Iran deal rally. Oh, I was. It was just that was in the campaign or do it was during the campaign cover that? Yes, there were two. There are two episodes there that I think were really kind of phenomenal, and because he wasn't the the nominee you could get r- relatively close to him. He had security, but you could go up to them and ask him questions, right? And so we all did. And so there was a big crush of reporters and photographers, and we were all asking questions and he wanted to answer this one question from a reporter from one of the cable news networks. But because of the way we were sort of organized around him all in a big circle. The reporter was separated from her photographer. And he sort of instinctively knew that because he, he knew that the network. So he gets the question and before he answers it, he says, where's your camera? And she points points in direction of the camera, and he turned his body and answers questions so that the sight line of the camera was just right, and he knew where the light was from the sun and so that the shot on television was perfect. Why? And I saw that, and I thought. So he gives a speech and as he's leaving, he has to because this is outside of the capitol, and there was like this and Bank meant that he had to walk over and they put these fake stairs as he was walking over these temporary stairs to get to the car. He stops at the top and turns around like Eva Peron from Evita and wave all of these people really. But nobody was waving at him. It was just for the cameras. And so I guess he wanted to have this vision of himself really to these adoring fans. So talk about the reality of this job right now president just tweeted announcing that Don mcgann's leaving his job this fall in the middle of conversation. Can you remain an axiom scoop from this morning? And now I'm panicking silently, and of course we knew that dumb again was gonna leave after this is the White House counsel. The White House counsel who has reported threatened to quit when the president ordered him to fire Jeff Sessions, the White House counsel who apparently, you know, spoke at length with the special counsel. So we knew that he was I- exits and would probably..

"Katie Rogers, White House correspondent from New York Times. Thanks for being here. Oh, you're welcome. Jeff Bennett. White House correspondent for NBC news. Thank you for being here. It's a privilege. Fun fact. I worked with you both before and gosh, our paths diverged. But we're all living our best law. Yeah. So I was worried for the last two weeks about this conversation because I said, well, they cover the White House. And something happens. They gotta go. And then I was like, would I be able to do that thing? Or you know, when you're at dinner and someone's like, all right, everyone iphones on the table face down the first person to pick it up, pays for dinner. It was like, what's the radio of that? Well, for me, this is my day off. Oh. So I have to leave, which is why this data Katie is on full duty right now. I'll let you I had to take a few calls in the lobby on the way on the way up. You know, my phone rings, I might have to put us on speaker phone with with somebody source for that. But luckily just shout out to Michael shear, my colleague who's babysitting right now. Thanks, Michael. Yeah, in my absence. Yeah. How long have you both been covering the White House now? I've only been covering it since January. What? Yeah. Crazy crazy. So less than a year? Yeah, less than a year. I've been covering the White House for a few years. So I covered the end of the Obama administration for New York one, which is a well-known stationing dark line. And then when I came to NPR, was I a producer, but then a reporter I covered the White House for NPR for a few months and then jump. He's literally literally for a few months and then jumped to NBC news and I've been at NBC for eight months. Okay. Wow. So then my next question for you. Both is you've been covering the Trump administration, Jeff, since the start Katie for a few months in your time covering the Trump White House, what is the wacky craziest report. Story you guys can tell me without getting in trouble the story that you tell your friends at bars when they ask how crazy the job is. Oh. I had a story a couple of weeks ago that sort of illustrated to me how involve the president is in coverage about him, which is not unusual presidents care about how the media covers them, but I was on the Europe. Did you go on the uptrend? So I was on the Europe trip in. I got a heads up from a source at the White House who just had this Email that showed that he got on the plane at some point during the Helsinki Trump and freaked out because the first lady's TV was tuned to CNN and Lang threw a fit and now in got the military office involved like to make standard operating procedure, Fox News on all the TV's going forward. I mean, pause you real quick. You're saying Donald Trump was so mad that his wife was watching a network other than FOX that he changed the protocol. Yes. What I'm not clear on whether she was sitting in her area watching it was tuned to it was on and he flipped his lid. And I came in possession of a string of emails saying, oh, that story. Yeah, I just standard operating procedure going forward in the hotel suites, and that was actually confirmation at they sleep in different rooms to like first lady. Sweet sweet. I guess the wildest in the press cabin on Air Force One. It's all you can watch his Fox News..

"The book that you wrote s- is a book of your account from being inside the White House. Now, if I read this book and nothing about the Trump administration, I would say that all of it is alive. I would say that all of it is wildly untrue just because of the stories that are so extreme. But because of what we've experienced, what we've learned about the White House, I'm reading the book and. And honestly not in a bad way, but it doesn't seem like there's anything new in the book. So why, why rights at what did you think this book would add to the conversation? We have about Donald Trump when you say there's nothing new in the book, it's not just about Donald Trump, talked about my childhood. I talked about the difficulty going through my father's murder. My brother's murder and a lot of things like my family surviving a house fire that killed my cousin. Those are things that I've never talked about publicly. So there are actually new things in the book, right? New things in the book about yourself. But unhinged, I guess, gives people in inside as the Trump White House. I mean, that's that's what the book talks about. And when you came out with this book, everyone said, look on, what are you going to tell us? Nothing new, really. There are few accounts at the White House has disputed here. Did you expect that when you wrote the book? Oh, absolutely. Because they lied to the American people every single day. So it doesn't surprise me that when they're faced with the truth, they'll push back. Right. What's interesting is the question that immediately springs to mind when you say that is. You will part of an organization and a team that lied to the American people every day, unfortunately. And I regret that that I was totally complicit, but I didn't go in thinking we were gonna lie. In fact, when I sat through my first briefing with Sean Spicer when he said that this was the biggest inauguration in history ever. I was sitting there going well, do I have lying is or is he lying? Because everyone knows it wasn't the big as as from the beginning got really, really bizarre, but I tried to stay focused on my portfolio. We've always helping the African American community. Don't we? We'll get to that in a second. But what's interesting is you talk about in the book how you manage to create a distinction in your mind between Donald Trump pre presidency and Donald Trump post? So you genuinely believed that the Donald Trump you knew from the apprentice and from the time you spend together would somehow change once he moved into the White House that he would stop telling white lies or leaving out truths or missions. You genuinely believe that knowing him, I hope that he would rise to the occasion. I mean to. The greatest honor that any person can have only forty five people have ever said in that office. I thought that he could actually rise to the occasion of being presidential and boy was I wrong? I mean, every single day he dismantles the dignity of that office when you were working with him, you just spoke to the fact that you had what you took really seriously as role in the administration. Everyone talks about what you're all is, what did you believe or was my my role had two folds. I was director of communication for the office of public liaison, which means that I was a spokesperson for diverse communities, but there was not anyone appointed to work with the African American community or on those issues. And so I took that on as well. They told me they would appoint someone I think President Obama had fifteen or sixteen people appointed to that office. We had no one. So I was doing double duty in the communication shop and taking on the issues that were so important to the black. Immunity. And when you look at President Trump's time in office now, do you feel like your time made an impact? Oh, did I particularly remember flying to Haiti for the inauguration of the president there and the commitments that we made during the community during our campaign to hell that particular community, it's still rebuilding. And when I went there and they saw a Representative that look like me, a person of color, they were so excited and they actually believe that this community that this administration was going to help that community when we did all the work we did for the HP c community, and we brought the students one hundred ABC you all stars to the White House.

"And even when you listen to the news coverage of Imran Khan, they may as well be describing an even more tanned version of President Trump zero experiencing government, but he promises a new Pakistan. Khan has widened his appeal by costing himself as a populist around con represents a strong muscular nationalism. He did conservative positions women's rights issues as able to contradict himself along the same speech. It's amazing how that used to be considered a career ender, but now pundits talk about it like it's a skill they're like, well, you know, he's able to contradict himself in the same speech, which is really good and really bad, and it turns out the more you look, the more you realize these similarities have spent their entire lives right. When Trump was doing Pizza Hut. Ads con wasn't ads for Pepsi. Trump had three marriages in the tabloids. So did con- Trump thinks Islam is bad com lives in this llama bad. I should've stuck. Behead the rhythm, kept me going. In fact, these guys are so alike that shortly before he was elected con was also embroiled in a sexual harassment scandal and just like Trump he got through its and for some strange reason, Billy Bush got fired again. Been trying to start a new life. And that would be one thing if the two leaders were just the same. But what's mind blowing is that they use the same costing director to find their supporters. Donald Trump's rowdy campaign rallies getting increasingly violent, his followers of eight young, but they're known for being very rude, unbathed destructive. There are thousands of people inside this just to catch a glimpse, Donald Trump, thousands of Pakistanis waking today, hero Imran, hey, rockstar reception for Donald Trump, his private plane right into his Arizona rally, like a rock gone arriving at a set outcomes Imran's flying with them into a frenzy. I love how people are impressed by someone in an aircraft like it's the nineteen twenties just like, look, he's up in the sky like bad. You should be. The need. And look, don't get me wrong. I'm not saying Imran Khan is the Brown Trump, right? Although that would be funny if Trump just woke up Brown, that would, I think. I think that would be a great movie who would just be him building a wall to protect us from himself just like we've got to build a wall because I come in, no, no, no, no. Look, I'm not saying Imran Khan is the Brown Trump. I'm saying that Imran Khan is one of many leaders around the world who is following the successful formats of the hit show called the Trump presidency, including apparently using the same rights as people love me. And you know what? I've been very successful. Everybody loves me. Someone like me who's blessed with everything. Everything doesn't need anything, and there's so much love from these people that system is set up so that the crooked politicians can make sure they get somebody in. That's not, you know, part of what we're doing, but we're gonna light in the much of status in one addition. Ruikun mafia. I'm not gonna lie. It sounds a bit better hearing Trump's phrases with Bollywood music in the background just doesn't mastering to build though. So look, I don't know if prime minister Khan will turn out exactly like President Trump. All I'm saying is if you were planning to move to Pakistan to escape Trump, you might wanna pick someplace else. We'll be right back. My guest tonight of eleven months in the Trump White House before she was fired from her role as director of communications for the office of public liaison. Now, she's out with a new book unhinged an inside as account of the Trump White House. Please welcome. Omarosa manigault Newman..

"You know it feels so me for looking at the at the trump white house and what it looks like is that donald trump who didn't think he would be president then opened the doors and said everyone come on it and it's a feast for everyone is sort of a smorgasbord of selfenrichment you who are a coal iranian or your coal executive come on in and run the coal industry for your own benefit then carcinoma was like why would he be they hit a putt all his wife and son are both in the in the development and real estate business will now it makes everything feels like it was pecuniary then it was about self deleon selfenrichment at some point your party the republican party has to have seen that are figure that out have they figured it out and do they plan to do anything about it or at first i want to exclude james mattis who's probably a great defense secretary and is there for the right reasons because he wants to protect the country but i think that the republicans we know that he was not a good businessmen look at what he did this week these bankruptcies and being like the 17th greatest developer new york city i think there are my nephews have better developments with their legos than donald trump but when you see that and he goes up new announces the tariffs on a whim without doing any of the groundwork to play them out you don't do that as a businessman if you're in agribusiness deal so donald trump at the end of the day isn't being well wellserved by himself and republicans understand that's what i don't get politically is why he would impose these tariffs when we're already facing strong headwinds in 2018 and the economy is revenue rubric a pretty good but with these headwinds you're going to actually destroy it and make it harder power why are we making it live to win and 2018 he said at rallies that he do it it's like the wall he said he do it and he says according to his tweet it's easy.
