And i'm angie lovelock and today on the signal the case that might just trigger some desperately needed reform women in australian politics. Okay so it's it's been a couple of weeks. Maybe you could take back to the moment when this story broke. Yes so it was the first monday of this sitting fortnight around eight o'clock the morning. This is clear armstrong. She's the national political reporter at the daily telegraph newspaper based in parliament. House in canberra.

Au higgins claimed. She felt forced to choose between reporting the assault to police or keeping her dream job. Britney alleges that she was raped by a maiocco lake in the office of now defense minister linda reynolds and The instant reaction i would say was one of complete and utter shock. This abject failure to provide a safe place of work here in parliament and in politics more. Broadly has got to come to an. I think there is. I called for problem inside this building. I've spoken about it many times. I think for far too long young. Women have copped the brunt of the culture in this place and it's time we cleaned it up often beak political scandal type stories us saved until the monday of a sitting week. Because of course you have all of the politicians in cambra unable to escape the issue which was pretty much exactly why that story was published when it was but then quite quickly became apparent that this was going to be a really huge issue. More than i think what people may be realized at that moment because of course she was also booked. This brittany was also booked to appear on the project that night and give a full kind of unfettered account of what she was alleging. And that's really how it kicked off really starting the week with the most possible drama. I think i've had since. I've been camera eighteen months. Welcome back to this special edition of the project tonight. Claims of ripe roadblocks to a police investigation and a young woman forced to choose between her career and the pursuit of justice. And it all happened right in the heart of our democracy as you said clear. It broke on the monday of the start of this session.

Her allegation dates back to sort of the friday. Saturday of of twenty dead of much in two thousand nineteen And brittany alleges that when she was out at a with colleagues drinking at one point The the man she alleges raped her. She says through the night he'd hurler drink. She realized she was quite drunk. Wanted to home. I notice that he was buying meal out of drinks. And i was just sort of job. Well done kind of broadly being rewarded in a weird way. So would you say you were drunk when you decided to go home obsolete. She says it was suggested that because they lived in the same direction. They should share cab when she was in that cab he said i've got to pick something up from parliament on the way i and she goes along with it ends up being signed dean to parliament.

She laid down and she alleges that she wake up with with demand on top of that i woke up mid ripe essentially. I don't know why i knew. He was almost finished. But i felt like it had been going on for a while or that. He was done. He was sweaty. I couldn't get him off of me at this point. I started crying fast. Forward to the the the start of the workweek she. She comes to work and immediately. The issue is initially traded as security breach because obviously Linda reynolds was defense industry minister at the time a lot of classified important information potentially in that office so she learns pretty quickly that the male stafa involved in these instant has already been had their employment terminated over these potential security breach and she's brought into a series of formal employment meetings to discuss. What is that time. Believed to be a security breach felt like a disciplinary meeting. It was we've been made aware of the events in that. You guys were here after hours. And you know that's not acceptable She of course then disclosed to her boss when reynolds what she alleged happened to her and that also then led her going to the afp.

All of this is the bilateral relationship between the U. S and Saudi Arabia. Press secretary said yesterday as she said last week that the U. S. Intends to recalibrate its relationship with Saudi Arabia. I asked what that meant, and Jen Psaki said, Essentially, that it means that the president of the United States will be dealing with his counterpart, King Salman. Not directly with the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is said to be named in this report is being implicated in the murder of this journalist. I asked how it is that the Biden administration can engage your deal with Mohammed bin Salman. And the fact is that Mohammed bin Salman is the defense minister of Saudi Arabia. So the Biden administration sort of doing a counterpart to counterpart. Relationship s so the president will speak with King Salman. And the Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, will speak with Mohammed Bin Salman. He already has. And one thing that Jen Psaki mentioned in the briefing yesterday, which is the fact that the look the U. S and Saudi Arabia are our longstanding allies and we have a lot of mutual interests, and so that's a relationship that has to be preserved. But in this conversation that we expect to happen soon between the president and the king, I expect and we all expect that some mention of this incident will be raised and going forward. How it is that the U. S. Condell with the Saudis. If it is that Mohammed bin Salman takes power from his father in a certain point how that relationship will play out.

Texas has more than enough generating capacity to handle itself. It was just the state of affairs of that equipment and the state of affairs of the management of that equipment. The causes from texas is the only state in the continental us with an independent grid meaning. It does not connect to any other states power source. When that merciless winter weather hid in one of the warmest regions of the country. People crank up their heaters and the energy demand surged when that system shut down. There was nowhere to turn for power. There is no place for the texas grid to go there. Couple small lines extension cords to the east in the west. But that's not enough really to to pick up.

"We're going to start in the early nineties back before this shift. When the old rules about government borrowing still applied. Bill clinton had just been elected president. He appointed an economist named laura tyson to be one of his top advisors and she looked at the economy and she saw this glaring problem year after year. Both government deficits and interest rates. Were going up and then he said omega if we don't get a hold of this federal deficit than that trend will continue. Those rates will continue upward. That was a very significant concern. Higher interest rates were concerned for a couple of reasons for one thing. Obviously they meant that the government had to pay more to borrow money but also when interest rates for the government went up. Interest rates also went up for everybody else. And that's it up this whole cascade of problems so we're people won't buy as many houses. There won't be as many houses constructed in their wealth as much capital equipment invested in and investments in important part of the Economic growth in your all sorts of every interest sensitive part of the economy the way the government runs a deficit. The way it borrows money is by selling bonds treasury bonds. The government says to really anybody. Okay lend us whatever one hundred dollars and in say ten years we will pay you back with interest will pay you back one hundred twenty dollars. The bond is basically the government's i. Iou you that it will pay back that loan with interest and during the clinton administration because of that link between deficits and interest rates. Everybody in the white house talked about treasury bonds about the bond market time. James carville was a political advisor to president. Clinton was just an obsession. In the early days of clinton's everybody say what's the bond market could house bot mocking react to hell multiple. i don't know it just became this omnipresent. The heart of every conversation. James carville was not an economics guy but as he spent time at the white house he realized that sort of bizarrely all these people who worked there making policy the people who had what seemed like the most powerful jobs in the world. We're in fact terrified of the bond market so when a reporter from the wall street journal called up carville to talk about the bond market. He came up with this line that became sort of famous or at least bond market famous kid. I wanted to grow up with four hundred hitter. The pope and the president. But i just want to be the bond. Market's gonna scare the hell out of everybody pleat. What did he say. A what a hundred hitter like in baseball pope the president baseball. I cannot tell you how many times he said that's me. Every meeting every meeting a lot of my memories are about carville sort of making jokes about you. Know you issues as a bond trader bond traders. These are the people who work in finance all around the world who manage a bunch of money. Generally other people's money pension funds or college endowments that kind of thing and every day they decide what bonds to buy and what bonds to sell what companies and countries to lend to and what companies and countries to not lend to to stop lending to and like with any lender bond traders worry about lending more money to a borrower who is already borrowing a lot because all that borrowing makes it more risky and so to compensate for that risk bond traders demand a higher interest rate. They stop lending until rates. Go up and this bond traders demanding higher interest rates when the government is borrowing more money. This is the scenario that everyone was so worried about people. Were so afraid of this that there was even a special term for the bond traders. Who do this bond vigilantes. Bill clinton has convinced. The bond vigilantes are scary and in fact he decides the us needs to bring the deficit down. He decides to build a whole economic plan around getting rid of the deficit. One of the economists he brought in to make that happen was jason and a central argument. That we made was if you do this. It will lower interest rates and interest rates are lower will have more investment and more economic growth and sort of amazingly. All of this happened. They did raise taxes and cut spending and get the deficit down. In fact by the end of the clinton administration the deficit felt all the way to zero. And what came next was sort of a golden moment for the economy in silicon valley. There was the dot com boom but really the whole economy was doing great businesses of all kinds. Were doing well. Ordinary workers were getting breezes lower deficits lead to lower interest rates which led to more investment. And that was good for basically everybody. The system was working. The next big moment in the story comes right after the financial crisis of two thousand eight and this is the moment when everything is about to change when this big shift in the way the world works is about to happen but nobody quite nosy yet. Brock obama has just been elected. President obama brings in clinton's guy. Jason furman as one of his economic advisors and ferment. Goes into this meeting to discuss. How big of a stimulus. Bill obama should push for as he takes office. We met with the president-elect december sixteenth two thousand eight and we're all crowded together in a conference room. I think it was in a law firm in chicago and he wanted it to be big. He wanted to be bold but there was this worry. The stimulus was going to be funded with deficit. Spending government was going to borrow the money. And some of obama's own economic advisers worried that borrowing and spending too much money might actually harm the economy for that classic reason

How i treat people have chosen to comes from my childhood and you know i had a reedy great childhood. I grew up for e kind of a poll basically in east london very deprived area. And i say it so blatantly as that is because you know. It wasn't only devoid of glamour. It was completely devoid of opportunities. Everybody in that community had lived there their entire lives and you seemingly could get out of it. It was a huge jack of opportunity. A huge lacquers education and i saw for myself in my mother who really kind of broke through an managed to create something else for. She was a single mother with four children and my mom found herself. You know working in the stock exchange becoming a trader having a job for twenty plus years at morgan stanley. And that for me was you know it was just like a gateway sunday could see that you know you could create with with a lot of hard work and today and if you really did that you get rid of that to pay off then you could really really really change your outlook very very early on i. I really believe that the harder. I what the more likely would be to get myself out of. Why soares a pretty kind of dire situation but of course when you live and you grow up like that doing something you know. I could understand it if you're a doctor lawyer or going into banking fashion just didn't seem like a way out to me and so there are times in my life where i definitely thought. Oh am i on the wrong path which is ultimately why. I went and studied business at the london college fashion. Because i believe that. If i could set that foundation in business and have this specialism fashion that at least it would ground me that if all that fun bit didn't work out. I'd still have the basics of business. And i could go and run construction company. Also something

"Days until joe biden becomes president as one writer. Put it today. The outgoing administration is leaving behind. Some diplomatic benefits appeals for the new administration. But that's the polite way of putting it the truth is our rotund secretary of state. Mr pompeo is leaving office as a small vindictive man in keeping with the ethos of the outgoing administration our chief washington correspondent andrea mitchell covering for us tonight. Good evening. brian usually in the final days of any administration presidents even defeated ones defer to their successors and resist big policy moves. Not so with president trump. Even this week his administration is making decisions. That president-elect biden may not be able to change after the right at the capital. The president finally promised an orderly transition. But he's taking steps to tie president-elect biden's hands on key policies at home and abroad this week a new roof from the environmental protection agency making it tougher to control harmful emissions that contribute to climate change before that new travel bans on green card applicants and temporary visa holders to further limit immigration this as secretary of state.

"That's a concern. We have been hearing from a number of Ally that would say of the president adviser that the president this deep concerning that include former white house officials in this that there are just not people in crucial jobs functioning at a high level to carry out the business of the government whether it is within the white house Whether it is within so many of the departments and agencies that have acting administrators in there right now the head of the department of homeland security just left right before this enormous security event. We are having to coordinate right now in washington. You mentioned acting attorney general. Acting defense secretary You know and of course then. There's this trickle down throughout all of these agencies and some of these agencies are like vhs have been hollowed out on before this some of that being intentional on some that being just mismanagement over years. So this is a real concern. Not just the people on the outside but people on the inside that we have been hearing from that there is not the personnel in the key positions to be able to carry out the functions. Some basic some really crucial right now or the. Us government in these next seven days alexei. I got one for you. Feast your eyes on lindsey. Graham on sean hannity tonight will discuss on the other side. The president of the united states was impeached. Today without one witness being called without a lawyer present and it's an assault on the presidency itself These actions if they continue will incite more violence. What good comes from teaching impeaching president trump. After he's out of office joe biden. If you're watching tonight you have a chance to practice what you preach. You should call. Chuck schumer nancy pelosi and say for the good of the country. President trump will be leaving office on january the twentieth less stop impeachment. Stop it now. So lindsay's out there still taking one for the team. Note the hint of violence in his answer but Alexi biden contends. As i said earlier the senate can impeach and chew gum and he can get enough of his picks through the senate at the same time brennan. I talked to a handful of senate democratic aide today and i basically asked them logistically feasible. Is this something you could see working out. Ray could split your days in half and focused on peach men in other legislative priorities including but not limited to beginning confirmation hearings for biden cabinet picks and the folks i talked to you said yes. It's just a matter of humor and other democratic leaders getting together to figure out what the structure of the days look like so it sounds like it's just a logistics issue or a logistics meeting to be had at this point. And you know i talked with some folks about an hour ago who Sources familiar with a meeting house impeachment. Managers had this evening in which they discussed the way forward and said that while it's not completely off the table. It doesn't seem likely that they will wait. Until after biden's first one hundred days to send those articles of impeachment to the senate which obviously makes this dynamic about how to figure out how to walk and chew gum at the same time more of a realistic possibility for democrats and this source also said that they met for about an hour but that it's still up to speaker pelosi about how they move forward but that's their they get the sense that things are moving sooner rather than later in that. Goes back to this idea of accountability. So while senator. Lindsey graham wants to talk about what he thinks should be done. You know unfortunately for republicans. They've lost the senate. The house and the white house and senator lindsey. Graham hasn't really in charge of telling joe biden or democrats had informed with is impeachment trial in the senate so he can talk to sean hannity event it. But unless he's talking to leaders schumer. I don't know that he'll have much sweat. Ab one more note on mcconnell. I wanna hear you out more. Republicans have to realize that they have in their hand the ripcord to free themselves from trump. I guess unless trump is the greatest thing that ever happened in their political lives again. I see in mcconnell's intentional Lee campaign this week That he wants to threaten the president. And i think that's why we saw the video today. And that's why we have Lindsey graham on the records the washington post talking about how he's on the plane with the president calling his colleagues and lobbying them to Oppose impeachment but that was enough of a warning from mcconnell To the president to behave. Well i think the put out the video as i said As a result of the threat from mcconnell that he would vote to convict and possibly you know he could find those seventeen members and get a supermajority and have this all done while he was still president. I mean i think the specter of that was in the threat and then since the president has sort of stood down and put up the statement today and this video mcconnell and his colleagues are gonna give all these conflicting signals which they are about the timing of the trial and what it means and whether or not it's a good thing to convict a president after they leave office but they still don't know the answer to whether or not the voters they serve are going to let them separate from president trump terrific starting panel tonight. Alexi youth thanked us for having you allow me on behalf of the viewers to thank you for being here along with shannon and a be great. Thanks for starting us off on this consequential night coming up for us. Why tom friedman of the new york times says he wants trump back on twitter and his advice for the democrats to get the country back on track. He is standing by to join us and later. It hasn't exactly been orderly but the transfer of power will happen and with it. The big lie of twenty twenty will finally be put to rest but at what cost the enormous challenges ahead for the incoming administration as the eleventh hour is just getting underway on this.

"Contributions and they feel like they really need to get rid of trump. there's still a feeling among the members That they are their constituents demand that they oppose impeachment that they continue to defend the president. And the you can tell within the leadership that they feel that that is what went on with their followership. I mean liz. Cheney is a standout from the rest of leadership as you can see in their votes and so you know. She's i think she's earned a lot of respect and what she did but only nine other members you have the guts to defy death threats and vote for impeachment so you know the whole game. That mcconnell's playing. I think really is indicative of the fact that they're chasing by the fact that the trump and that all of these corporations are cutting off not only seditionists but in some cases but i do think there warily watching reaction at home in a not so certain yet they can cut ties with shannon of my question. Do you involves a quiz for our viewers and not this panel. Because we already know the answer. I'm gonna put a picture on the screen a freeze frame from a youtube video and ask the good folks watching to identify this man. This man happens to be your chief law enforcement officer americans. His name is jeffrey rosen. He is the acting attorney general of the united states. We don't get to see him or hear from him. Live in front of microphones are reporters like the rest of our government seemingly he now puts out videos instead the first we've heard from him. Since this act of insurrection and sedition was a video he put out looking for leads in this investigation shannon after an attack on the heart of our government. I get that this guy is going to be an asterisk in history. But where is our government. Well.

Since insurrectionists american citizens looted and desecrated our capital this dark day in modern american history now takes its place among all the other dark days. We have witnessed over these past four years. This president will now leave office. Having lost the house senate and white house. Having lost reelection having lost the popular vote twice as of today and as children will be taught in schools for the rest of our days donald. John trump of queens new york now becomes the first president in american history to be impeached twice. The man who warned us we would get tired of winning. Has now lost everything. His place in history has now been cemented. The man who we heard on tape trying to rig the outcome of an election he lost the man who's malfeasance malpractice an-and enablers will forever be linked with an american death toll now approaching four hundred thousand souls. Trump will now be tried as an ex-president a real gut check of the gutless. The ultimate test of the republicans who sold out their names and offices to become the party of donald trump because of the violence the president incited there are troops quartered inside our us capitol for the first time since the civil war. That's how real the threat is from weaponized components of the millions of americans. Who have been lied to for years by a man now a week away from leaving office at long last here now. A reminder of what trump's supporters heard just one week ago today they rigged it election. They rigged like they've never rigged it election before we will not let them. Silence your voices..

"Wow you know that season of mesh chef was the first and maybe the only one that really brought me to tears literally and we and we had khloe down on the show On our live show in In austin a couple of years ago from south by so same year actually yeah. Yeah so it's pretty cool. Yeah i yeah so definitely that that. Representations element is huge on the good side We're gonna kick digest now and tell us what the good of asian reality. Tv is all about from your perspective. You know i'm just gonna fall out with han. Ju just because i as i was thinking about it is in like food shows. It is whether it's more docu series or competitions where we're seeing seeing people like christine haw david chang. That's where you know padma lakshmi you know that's where we're seeing our faces of our community in such positive in also really interesting ways. I think that dominated tops jeff. I mean that's definitely have had a strong showing among the top top. Not only the top chef competition but like among winners. Like who strangle winners. Though it's been that's been pretty cool in tops when my favorite show so Didn't we have a wasn't there. A vietnamese american top chef winner also The paul who is he right. Isn't he awesome. Houston i'll tell you often but yeah so It hung rin. he won. he won one of them. Yeah and then. There was to david fu. But he was top chef alumni honestly venus americans just like owned Owned this this genre. It seems in so many different ways and so i'll just go ahead and and give my good. Then i really do. I'm a firm believer in the fact that as much as reality. Tv is far from reality is distorted it's exploitative in many cases it nevertheless has been a platform for telling stories and representing people who i think would otherwise never have been given that space it. It's it's sort of like the You know i. I don't even know how to say the The distaff In slightly black sheep cousin of documentary right but it is popular whereas documentaries still struggles to get represented and somehow by amping seychas a little bit. This particular genre has been able to bring stories otherwise and people that otherwise might have been invisible to the masses and for what. It's worth a lot of people crossed over. I mean we we think of people like jamie chung with people like You know who else You mentioned chloe. Dao mentioned a lot of the top chef master chef winners A lotta the winners from america's best dance crew right. I mean the jabal lives were not who they are right. it wasn't for For their optioning. The sun there so in a way it was kind of. It's been a weird opportunity for us to break through the wall a little bit and for that reason even though Relatives not really my genre. It is it is one which i think has been incredibly important. Valuable in some ways just representation phil how about yourself. I'm gonna i mentioned someone you just you just mentioned actually but i'm going to bring up. The example of some of these shows are definitely people. People who participate in them are definitely looking for a springboard to get to the next level recognition in their careers. And i think by far the most successful person to come out of re the real world franchise has to be jamie chung.

"Your podcasts. Part of the potluck podcast collective and we're back all right on the second half of they call us bruce. This is where we do our favorite segment our signature segment the good the bad and the wpf jeff. Yang has his our custom. Would you please lay down the rules of engagement trying to crack my knuckles here. Prepare for this Yeah so as is our custom. I will walk through those rules of engagement. This is our round table segment of the show where we talk about a single topic three ways and of course when we have guests as we do this time we put our guests on the spot. A little bit will put them front as we discuss our topic of the week from the vantage point of what is positive what is good. What is friendly and warm about that thing. And then what is bad negative frustrating about that thing and then finally the wpf which is maybe not good or bad. It's just maybe puzzling. Something we're still thinking about and in this week in this episode. We want to do the good to ban the wpf of asians on reality tv. Because we're talking about a genre now. The unscripted genre that arguably fillon i've argued has paved the way in a lot of ways for diversity In television simply because the representation on both competition shows and and slice of life shows family shows like this and trapped in house shows all been focused on bringing the people very very different backgrounds which enabled people from hitherto on represented spaces to come on in sometimes conquer so with that we want to again. Put our guest in the spot. We're going to start. I think with han to talk about the good of asians in reality tv shows on. There's actually quite a lot Because i think as you guys have noted on the show. Many times asians have dominated reality. Tv as far as competition shows and the fishbowl shows and stuff like that however. While i was thinking back on when it came to vietnamese people in houston. It actually reminded me that to vietnamese. Women have re reality shows from houston and so one was chloe dao from project runway And other is christina from master chef and she's blind So i feel like those are really great representations because they are also of course very different but they also penetrated into my mom's world and he doesn't watch tv but she was like. Hey did you hear about this show. And i'm yes. Mom you know what i do for a living right. That's always the case where i'm like. I know you don't know anything. What's going on in the world right now but i'll mention like so and so do you and she'll she'll probably now So yeah. I think that those have been some really nice surprising. Representations that predated the hosts. Indeed i you know. I had the great opportunity to meet christine at at south by south west some years ago when not only is she just incredibly sweet and kind person. But you know. So it's just so insightful. About cooking about The world in the culture around the senses really that she has had to kind of adapt to because she can't she. She is legally blind and you know. She managed to win master chef but open her own restaurant. The blind goat With just the the muscle memory and the training and the resourcefulness that she's been bringing..

"When i talked to her she was wearing a silver sequined top And it was a zoom call but she was also very sweet and funny and outgoing. 'cause i established my houston routes pretty quickly But she was also kind of like closed. So like you know i even asked. How do you decide to you know how much of your kids you would show. And she's like. I want to show my kids. And that's why you barely see them and then that's she just left it at that so it's kinda like there are things that she was willing talk about things that she was. Just gonna give me the stock answer which i totally think is understandable. Like you can choose to be beyond camera but you can choose what you put on camera. So yeah so. I ended up. You know very much liking her but also very much knowing that we are not the same people so Yeah yeah i. I thought it was very interesting. She she ended up being. I think i don't wanna say we'd be friends or anything but Because that's presumptuous but We had a good conversation. Yeah i mean. I think it's also very clear that this family a mention it is quite a big family. They have like multiples siblings. Going on and and stuff that are around but probably just didn't want to be part of this this show because appearances and all that stuff which is aggravates super vietnamese. I think i didn't grow up with a big family because even though my mom has like ten other siblings and my dad has four other siblings but my parents were also the only people who were refugees but it was also. I will say what was really interesting is that you do get to see like the relationships between like cousins for instance just how close in terms of how they interacted with each other which i think is very. I don't know personally very cultural anyway rope with it. Yeah totally cousin. Sami is washington's basically right hand woman and like you know like is like the hype man for him and i don't know what her job is but whatever it is it's sweet and she seems to understand also that she has a good but she also realizes that this is not reality in some way but Yeah i and i grew up with all of my maternal cousins And we definitely like we still if if it were not for pandemic we always have cousins christmas party where i go home to houston and now that party has grown from just the cousins to now their spouses and their kids and so we usually end up being like either one person really huge house or in a park and Yeah and my one cousin. And they're a cup cousins. I'm really close with but one of them is like watchhouse a home. Please tell me if you know someone on it..

"Am i doing but as all these not on very much and i don't know i only i only saw the that episode five where he sort of makes that makes it. I don't know that's his first appearance. But it's definitely appearance. Where he he makes a real show of or a real statement of kind of not being like the rest of his his family and being completely unafraid to say whatever's on his mind basically. Yeah and that. And that's the that's the only episode of the i think there's about seven episodes total so it's the only episode. He appears actually which is like you guys. He's one of my favorite characters of we're talking about the show. And i kind of wish he was on at least like for like one or two more episodes. I have a feeling he probably didn't even wanna be on the show in the first place. Yeah i mean all things. They wrote them in for a hunting trip. Which i have to say with my cousins. That's very very real. I have cousins. Who are gun toting hunters day. Whoa he he's he's when we're talking about voice of reason we're pretty much assuming he's more liberal And my my cousins are conservative but Yeah it's very interesting to see. Like what was he like growing up that he was able to completely not fall in line because the thing about washington being a man child is literally can't think of anything to do on his own like his. His mom is the one who told him to marry leslie wright. His dad has to kind of explain. Like you can't treat your wife. Like i treated my wife because there are different like us. Like wow and he's like that's a revelation but so whereas reagan definitely thought for himself. So maybe it's because they put all their attentions on washington when he was growing up and then reagan didn't need to air on the spare. No yeah maybe he was able to be influenced by outside. Yeah and maybe he witnessed. How has siblings were being treated by his parents and so went a totally different direction. What a totally opposite direction rebelled against them and how they treated the rest of his family know he does say it as it is. He's not he's not afraid to say it's opinions and he's the one who immediately like he doesn't hesitate to defend his sister judy when she needs it. I can't quite say that it's necessarily true. He's you know liberal or whatever it's just sort of relative because you know everybody in this family voted for trump does feels like a Yeah i tried. Judy and she was just like everyone disagrees. I'll say let's just leave it at that. Try to corner you to tell me how you voted. But i was curious how you guys talk about it and your family. Yeah so so so you. You interviewed judy. Oh yeah yeah yeah you can give us to that interview neo not a lot. I mean she is in in some ways very much what you saw on tv..

"You know that she got earned. A master's for doctorate masters ultra. Yes doctor and so she she has. What three kids running around. And she has to take care of her man. Child husband canoe. Who even his dad realizes it. And at one point the dad pulls her aside and it was basically you know burdens her with extra stuff and she's like while you talk to your son. He's like well. I trust you more. And i'm like sushi was riding it at some point And just maybe you can help me here. Like basically they kind of put her in the position of high which yeah basically the oldest daughter which is basically the second mom of the family and so she is technically older than washington. But you know she doesn't count as anything because she's a girl so But she basically had to raise him to and so that's why washing always goes to her with stuff And now that's leslie responsibility. So it's just like i feel for both of them but you know leslie was also like i thought he was my prince charming and i was like well. The funniest thing is when leslie is talking to judy. They're like spa getting like gold leaf applied to their faces as part of some some facial or something and judas. Like what did you see. My brother leads is like oh well you know. I was living in washington at the time right around the corner from washington street. And then when i mentioned brother i thought it was fate could absolutely batteries in a very very tale like what how could she have gone that much like education and still pick sheltered like you should be like maybe this is. Why like not to give any spoilers but you know he does have a little turning point and so maybe he finally realizes that she's an amazing wife. So yeah it seems like the the data also knows that he has a great partner is amazing..

I definitely marcus. A river oaks locations but only maybe two of them that i've seen listed on the show but yeah but agreed with just that it was far better. You could tell that they had all of the regular. Oh we're gonna shoot all these scenes of them like throwing money in the air and bought and going on the private jet and doing all that like really obnoxious. What was that smoking jacket he was wearing wash wearing. I just oh. I couldn't stand it. But then yes the dysfunction which is surprising to me. Because i mean i hate to say it but like stereotype is true. We don't wanna era out our dirty laundry so in the fact that they did and then they did it in a very productive way which was crazy to me.

Max it is a <hes>. Reality television series in the vein of all those shows that you that no one wants a care to admit to watch like the cardiac shahs of sunset and <hes>. The real housewives that genre <hes>. But it specifically focusing on a very wealthy vietnamese american family in houston <hes>. Have i covered all the bases. I think pretty much. I mean know we we can say that the the cast of characters is <hes>. What you might expect for a family drama whether fictional or not set in an asian context right you've got sort of the patriarch matriarch the siblings they all have different dramas individually collectively. They gathered together. Eat a lot basically. This is the nonfiction crazy rich issue. Because that's exactly what what was clearly developed to be right right right. It's definitely created in the wake of the cruiser cheese <hes>. But that said i mean we've all watched it in varying degrees varying varying number of episodes. I will admit to having watched the first episode and a later episode. That i was told i should watch because it was worth watching and the guys are pretty finished. A lot of it right. So unless the jump in <unk>. Just start with you. What's what's your take coming up. Well i guess well i. I actually ended up catching it early. Screener of it before so. Luckily i only watch more so <hes>. It to be blunt. It was not as trashy as what i expected it to be. Maybe no expectations. And like i feel like new money. Beat amuse people like there are certain type and how the show presented was <unk>. Surprisingly a a lot. More layered than i thought you know especially particularly when <hes>. You know you go deeper into the series because at first episode definitely like leaned into like this this like you know american dream poll by the bootstraps model minority and all that jazz and and then it starts off like that and then just breaks it down and just show us like just all the dysfunctions of the family. So you know actually was an keep in mind. I don't really watch. the family. Reality shows is just not my thing. But you know i had to see it.

There's not a ton of concerts going on and a lot of things are going. That'd be very crowded. I was thinking you know you can go to the Ballet Lucy comedy show but a lot of tourists are in town and I was like you know what i WanNa do is just be quiet. I'm so last year for. I've live my best friend's birthday. We went over to air which is spa in river north. They have these all over the world actually and they have all these pools and they're different temperatures. They've saltwater pools and heated and chilling pools. You could take a dip and and it's this quiet space and it's very mellow and they have deals for for League two hundred dollars which is a lot of money but you get a forty five minute massage. And then seventy five minutes in the pools and if it's a snowy day you can go into this hot pool and kind of go under for this little bridge in your outside and it will be snowing and yet it's beautiful and you're in the middle of the city.

What what do you have for us so I just this again? The other day some New York people tweeting about how deep dish pizza isn't real pizza. And it's terrible and Blah Blah Blah. And then they try to shame aim Chicago and I'm like you clearly do nothing about Chicago because that's not what people eat here every day. It's just a misconception. So I always try to recommend my favorite tavern style the pizza places and I love visiting these places in the winter because I can wear large sweaters and not feel bad about eating a lot of pizza and just because they're cozy My number one favorite is in beverly. It's Fox's on ninety nine th and western I grew up going here and ordering it for my non-us House so it's has a place in my heart. It's crispy cracker thin crust with a sweet sauce and friendly yet sometime salty waitresses in a really cute little spy with like an old fashioned neon. Sign out front. It's just great. Everyone I've brought there has been head over heels for the place place. Yeah yeah that's that's down there too. In also broncos is they have to mention both because I love them both so dearly there also are tavern style square cut pizza. That one's amount green wide on thirty forty seven West Eleventh Street.

Just Great Middle Eastern food really great prices it's a BYOD's spot family business. I just love it and I try to tell them to go there.

Y exactly so your last recommendation is a westbound spot. been around for a long time. Tell us about flow so flow was like the first brunch spot. I ever went to in on the north side when I moved up here from the South side I would go there in my twenties and a good bloody Marys with my friends and we share French toast and it still every time I go. I'm like this is so good. They have great like chill L'Aquila's and Cuevas ranchos and breakfast Burrito in town. In my opinion they make three different kinds of bloody marys different hot sauces. And just great like Mexican like tex-mex food food at night as well so they're brunches great but so is there the rest of their money long been around there since nineteen ninety nine. Yeah it's like a woman owned business and it's it's really cool spot and everyone. There works great so if somebody first trip to flows I mean what do you recommend that very first branch there.

"Hard to underestimate the gravity of the moment. We're looking looking at here. What this day means for all of us and the legacy of our forty fifth president luckily for us we have a Pulitzer Prize winning historian standing in by? Hey It's Chris as you know sometimes it's good to just take a step back from the day-to-day onslaught of news and take our broader. Look at the issues. That's what I'm doing each week on my podcast. Why is this happening? Were exploring topics ranging from school segregation to climate change. Well the way that I think think of it is climate change will be to the twenty th century what maternity west of the nineteenth century. It'll be the central subject of questions about economic justice. Everything you care about in the world will be affected by climate and digging deep with guests uniquely qualified to analyze issues from mass incarceration to race relations as you know for the first time in our history at the national level whites are on the verge of losing their majority status twenty years and I think it's no coincidence that our politics are getting more tribal. Join me for wise is happening. New episodes every Tuesday wherever you get your podcasts day this day we didn't ask for this. This is a sad day it is not a day of joy when you see something that is not right not just not fair you have a mall obligation advocation to set something to do something. Our children and their children were asked us. What did you do? What did you stare? Ah for some this vote may be hard. But we have a mission and a mandate to be on the right side of history John Lewis icon of the civil rights movement. Let's talk about where we bend today. What we've seen what we've heard with Pulitzer Prize is winner? Presidential Historian and author Jon. MEACHAM HAPPENS TO BE CO author along with Peter Baker and others of this new book called Impeachment and American history along with John's many other titles also happened to have written the introduction for the House Intel Committees Report on its investigation into Donald Trump and in Ukraine. What's going to become increasingly important document in the life of this country? John What does it say that in our lifetime. We've witnessed two of the the three impeachments in American history. Does that does that mean anything. Well almost three right a- actually so you're looking if you look at the last sixty years or so and watching Congressman Lewis. You can't help but go back to Sunday. March seventh nineteen sixty five on the Edmund pettus bridge when he and Hosea Williams were leading peaceful marches across that bridge for the right to vote The fundamental vote that had been guaranteed allegedly in the fifteenth amendment but it but then been systematically denied by my home region. And if you think about it in an interesting way you know we have a debate going on now about where we founded in sixteen nineteen or seventeen seventy six. Where do you begin this in a lot of ways always the country that came together today to vote and watch the impeachment of the forty fifth president was really born in Nineteen? Sixty five The policy that we're trying to govern is one that has only existed for about fifty five years. It's a pluralistic multi-ethnic. The ethnic one of the nineteen sixty five immigration act which doesn't get a lot of attention hugely important. The Voting Rights Act essential and the reaction action. We're seeing on the right and the centre right To the changes in the country which in many ways is manifested in this reflexive support of a singular person. The president which you saw the floor of the House today and I fear we're going to see in the Senate going forward you you see that as a reaction to the kinds of changes that Congressman Lewis embodies and because of that chaos because of the challenge to the norms. That really started in the mid sixties that. I don't think it's surprising that we've had these three impeachments. Each mints impeachments tend to happen at moments when there's some existential question about who. We are with Knicks with Andrew Johnson Johnson in one hundred years before it was the verdict of the civil war with President Nixon. It unfolded during Vietnam. The Cold War a lot of people thought the country was not gonNA survive five nineteen sixty eight as you'll remember President Clinton that was the rise of this reflexive partisanship the the attack on him. And now we have a demagogic president who has managed and Marshall then exacerbated the perennial American forces of xenophobia native. Eight of is racism extremism all at a time of political tribalism so disliked the image of a perfect storm because it's overused but in this case the cliche may be right. And that's the reason it's a cliche We could have planned it more dramatically to watch the forty fifth president and now third erred impeached. Making the short walk from Air Force One over to Marine One two of the aircraft that come with the job about to fly to the House that comes with the job of the White House and the next time you're on John we're going to talk about the life and legacy of the speaker of the House and how that might have been cemented just us today Jon Meacham in the meantime our thanks for coming on especially at the end of the day like today and coming up for us what our impeached president said about about impeachment before he himself was impeached..

"One thousand sixty three of the trump administration easily the most consequential day of this president's term in office tonight's vote in the full House of Representatives additives makes Donald Trump. Just the third American president to be impeached. The very moment house members were casting their votes trump was on stage. Rallying supporters in Battle Creek Michigan. The New York Times and Washington Post Front pages both put it succinctly with headlines that stretch across all columns reading simply trump impeached. Tonight's vote article. One abuse of power was to thirty two one ninety-seven to Democrats as has predicted voted with the other side moments later article to obstruction of Congress passed to twenty nine to one ninety eight. Three Democrats voted with the Republicans. Republicans against the Second Article Tolsey Gabbard Democrat of Hawaii running for president as a Democrat voted present on both articles. It's the lone independent in the house. Former Republican from Michigan Justin Amash joined Democrats voting for impeachment. These two articles articles will now be sent to the Senate. Trump is expected to face an impeachment. Trial there sometime in early January but as we said there's been a hitch and and that just tonight we'll have more on that specifically coming up remember however it was a phone call between the US and Ukrainian presidents almost five five months ago. Now that put us where we are tonight almost three months ago speaker. Pelosi made that decision to formally open an inquiry tonight indeed she delivered delivered her caucus today clad in black. She opened the more than eight hour debate on whether the president should be removed from office today speaker of the House I solemnly and sadly opened the debate on the impeachment of the president of the United States. If we do not act now derelict in our duty. It is tragic that the president's reckless actions make impeachment necessary. He gave us no no choice. You've been wanting to do this. Ever since the gentleman was elected Mr came forward and did what he saw fit for the American people but yet they wanted to impeach Egypt on December seventh nineteen forty one. Horrific Act happened in the United States. And this is one that President Roosevelt said. This is a date that will live in infamy today today December the eighteenth two thousand nineteen is another day that will live in infamy. What we're doing here today is not only patriotic? It is uniquely American. America is a story of ordinary people confronting abuses of power with the steadfast pursuit of justice. The impeachment serves two purposes number one. Stop the investigation by the US Department of Justice and Ukraine into the corruption of Ukraine. Nine interference into the US election in Twenty Sixteen am deeply concerned that any member of the house would spout Russian propaganda on the floor of the house. I rise today in support of these articles of impeachment. I come to this floor not as a democrat. Not as a Republican but as an American who cares deeply about the constitution the rule of law and the rights of the people never in all all my years of serving in this great institution that I love and the people of my district. Did I ever expect to encounter such an obvious wrongdoing by president of the United States. So you heard how some of the talking points points went today. Some of them translated from the original Russian. We heard at least one Pearl Harbor reference. One other moment that drew a lot of attention. Attention was when one of the Republican House members compared the impeachment of trump to the trial of Jesus when Jesus was falsely accused of treason Friesen pontius pilot gave. Jesus the opportunity to face his accusers during the trial Pontius pilot afforded more rights to Jesus than the Democrats. Let's have afforded this president and this process that brought this response from author and Jesuit priest. Father James Martin quote pilot the had Jesus beaten and whipped thrown into jail overnight march through the streets carrying his cross then nailed to that cross until he died comparing the treatment received received by the president to what Jesus suffered is absurd also only one of them is senlis. President trump spent much of his day inside the White House House and certainly on his phone and today's proceedings were clearly on his mind just before midnight here last night. He said this quote they want to impeach me. I'm not worried. These people are crazy. The president social media feed erupted again early this morning with dozens of tweets and re tweets including some in his favourite all caps quote. I did nothing wrong and shouting now. Atrocious lies by the radical left. Do Nothing Democrats. This is an assault on America and an assault on the Republican Party and we mentioned trump was on stage tonight at his rally in Battle Creek Michigan as he was being impeached. The event was angry and Rau- and included a disgraceful retailing of the death of John Dingell John diggle represented Michigan in the House of Representatives from Nineteen Nineteen fifty five to twenty fifteen just under sixty years in all. That's a record for Congress as any president. Would trump approved military laterriere honors for dingoes funeral. Who as a World War Two veteran is buried at? Arlington trump. Talked about it in terms of a favor he did for dingoes else widow now congresswoman. Debbie Dingle Democrat of Michigan for Missing Debbie. So she calls me up like eight months ago. Husband was long time but I didn't give him the beet treatment. I didn't give.
