"We can come together and have better safer stronger communities. Thank you for your question and thank you a congresswoman. Avail demings coming today. The invitation to mock. Oh rubio still stands and we'll be right back. Good luck thank you so musician. T pain wants to let people know how much their words matter. He's been sharing that. He fell into a year long years long depression after his friend and fellow musician. Usher criticized him. He criticized him for using auto tune in his music. I don't even really know what that is. But somehow i really no idea i just but but the point of this conversation is that the words can hurt you. I mean this to me. There's like a constructive criticism you like. you know. Maybe you should shorten the sentence a little bit and then there's you know that dress made sure behind looked like a mini van. That's not good. Say that's that's criticism. That hurts you but this particular and i could just add one thing i when i was a kid. Somebody said something to me that set me back ten years so i know how that feels. Even if i don't know what auto players. So what do you say that this sarah will want. It's auto tune joy so clearly. You don't know what it is but i think depending on the day i take criticism In there you have to check in with yourself. There are minutes in a day you have to check in. I often have to avoid social media Because of those things and there are days you feel a little more vulnerable. A little more delicate. I thought this spoke so much to doing work on yourself. You know i. I've been in therapy. I work with someone to really helped me build a toolbox that allows me to stop and say you know. I read a piece of advice. That said don't listen to people and what they say if you ask them for their opinion in your life and that's what social media has done. We've handed power over to strangers so there are days i can take it in stride and i feel strong and i'm good and then other days right before i check in i'm like i don't think i should check this today because i'm not strong enough. If it's not something good. So i could relate a lot to this story and i commend him for doing the work to get through that low point my feeling is you always consider the source meghan to many people forget that words can be very harmful and make an impact heavy. You handle it. yeah. And like i love t pain i mean has song cyclone and low like is like the soundtrack of my twenties and i actually have interviewed him before. One of my favorite things i ever did was auto tuned. The news with larry king and t pain on his show. I worked on called. Take part live in california. With jacob soboroff and it was so fun. And he's such a gentleman so it makes me very sad that he was going through this and usher of all people which he hasn't really had a big hit sets confessions so i don't really know where he's getting off talking about t pain who popularized something. That is still used today. So i wanna ego boost. They just come talk to me. I'm still a big fan. And people were cruel an awful and we have lost our humanity and a lot of ways online offline and in lots of different spheres. I think we're seeing it seep over as sunny spoke to yesterday about not wanting to leave her cave. We see people getting in fights at airports and malls and things like that. And you know i hated. It's horrible and i you know i. I wish it would have a reset and society. But i don't know what the answer to these problems are okay. Sunny deol people's criticism gets here. I follow that rule. That sarah just mentioned if i care about the person's opinion Then i take the criticism. Because i think that constructive criticism is is really important and i think feedback is really important. But i don't care about what people say on social media. And i don't care about what people say about me in the general public but i will say this. I think that people have just because maybe they've been in lockdown. I feel like it's almost like animalistic. Like animals have been let out of out of their cages. And i have seen this uptick in extreme cruelty. And it's one of the reasons why i don't wanna leave my little cave here because i just don't understand what's going on. It's like the key thugs with that keyboard. Courage that have been in their mothers basements are now released into the world. And they're being so mean so cruel and t pain. Maybe he did You know popularize auto tune but he is very talented. Not only can he rap. He actually has a wonderful voice and he sings as well and so for usher to take him down like that leading to a four year depression. I'm really disappointed. Really disappointed in us. Unfortunately people take it very seriously. I'm sorry we gotta go. I don't have time phelan. But i know how you take. Criticism you've won in one ear and out the other we'll be right back tomorrow. Senator bernie sanders. Es live.

"And we are back with congresswoman val demings. Suddenly you have a question. yes you spent. Nearly three decades in law enforcement becoming the orlando. Police department's first female police chief with calls for police reform and a racial reckoning after the murder of george floyd what does real reform look like to you and is there a need for suppose immunity some sort of qualified immunity sunny. Thank you so much for that question. And you're right. I spent twenty seven years in law enforcement as you saw from the pitcher. My husband also spent over thirty years in law enforcement served as police chief anisa sheriff with an orange county and so it was a profession that i loved a profession that i had an opportunity to work with some of the most courageous men and women that the profession has to offer. But there's no doubt we've had some problems and we have a direct obligation to do something about it when we talk about this issue. You know we frequently talk about the community and the police as if there are two separate entities but the community is the police and the police are the community and the way that we serve solve. The problems is the same way we solved valid crime in orlando a reduced it by forty percent when i was the chief of police by working very closely with the community and so what police perform looks like. I really do believe that we can get this done. Let's work to continue to hire the brightest and the best. Let's make sure that the police departments reflect the diversity in the communities in which they serve. Let's make sure that they received the best training there about eighteen thousand law enforcement agencies throughout our nation different sizes but let's look at training different budgets different training. Let's look at training and come up with some standardized training that all law enforcement departments will go through. Let's look at policies. One of the things that i did right after george floyd was to reach out with two different sheriffs and chiefs of police and ask them to fix their own broken this to look within their agencies at their policies and fix things and their policies that they did not need to wait on legislation to do. Like no knock warrants. Look as a former chief. I know how high risk they can be for officers and for citizens in our community and so banning no knock warrants non violent cases cases. What happened to george. Floyd was brutal. It was senseless and it was murder and the persons responsible should be and as you know are being held accountable but sunny very quickly as we deal with police reform we also need to deal with those quality of life issues that calls decay and communities in the first place. Let's get serious about mental health counseling funding for that. Let's get serious about drug addiction. Treatment funding less dress address substandard housing.

"Communists blah blah blah blah. Blah blah. Ortega blah blah blah castro. That's what he's going to run with against you. He's going to say you voted with progressives that you are a socialist. What do you say in return. And what i say is that desperate people do desperate things and to tell you the truth. I am offended that marco rubio would try to use the pain and suffering of people. Anna like you who fled communism who fled. Undemocratic regimes ran for their lives. That rubio would try to use their pain and suffering to make you afraid of me. I think that is disgraceful. I think it is disgusting. Matter fact what i'd like to hear rubio talk about. Let's talk about what's happening in nicaragua. Where five at least five. Opposition leaders were jailed and the government was weaponized against them. Rubio what do you think about that. But then we're talking about someone who stood next to win supports our president who has weaponized the department of justice against his perceived political rivals and the media so this race balls down again to who is willing to stand up and speak up for all people not pick and choose winners and losers. Based on your ability to play like marco rubio. He's afraid of a fight. I am not floridians are worth fighting for. Val demings dot com. Okay i you know. I think it be really good if mark rubio would come on this show and answer some of the things that you have said you say. He's afraid to to fight. We can have them on here. Let's see what he does with that. Okay but we're going to have more with congresswoman val demings.

"End zone. They lost me site. Is this a sign that this is this a sign that the sports world is catching up with the times. What do you think. I sure hope so like all of you. I was so shocked that this is still a thing in twenty twenty one. I'm thrilled that he did it. He certainly isn't the first. Nfl player to come out. Because i remember when sam Sam michael sam came out. That seem to be so groundbreaking at the time. And i also thought what why is a huge deal but he did it during his college career and right before the two thousand fourteen draft and that made it this this significant thing how would he be accepted in the locker room. How would he be drafted that whole thing so he was the first publicly gay player to be accepted to be drafted in the nfl but only played during the preseason. So this this hopefully this announcement makes nfl more inclusive the nfl. We are very proud of you. Family with with pride symbol. So i hope so. But i'm just surprised that it really still is a thing i mean. Come on yeah know well. They got jackie. Robinson was such a big to do down when he when he was. He was the one of the great baseball players. And we still talk about that. You know so. I don't know that this is such a big deal is such a big step forward meghan or not. I echo everything everyone said on previously. I think it's fantastic. But he's coming out fantastic that he's comfortable doing it and pride month. I hope it's a step forward. But i actually wanted to showcase another member of the lgbtq community a chakari. Richardson is currently the fastest woman in america and she just made it to the tokyo olympic team. She's openly bisexual and her story. I saw this on. Twitter is so amazing. We wanted to show a clip right here last week. Finding out my biological mother passed away. It's still choosing to pursue my dreams still coming out here still making sure to make the family. I do still crowd. She's literally the fastest iphone in america at the vast woman. She's an incredible story and she openly bisexual and she's about to go represent american tokyo. That's wonderful that's amazing. Well well i just. I just wonder leaders be gay in the world and it doesn't become a big deal by the way that inappropriate joke i made for daytime television scratching mid believe i never said it. We'll be right back does congresswoman bow demings plan to get marco rubio out of his senate seat. And what does she think about her. State banning critical race theory in schools. She's live on the view next so hopes of bipartisanship look increasingly bleak. Val demings has her eye on a seat in the senate. And it's the one that marco rubio is currently sitting in. Oh yeah please welcome congresswoman val demings. It's great to be with you. Welcome to the. It's great to have you here. And congratulations on your decision to run. We look forward to that and you but you say the decision came down to two words. What were the two words. And why did you pick those two words. Tell us what the decision came down to. The two words never tire. And it's two words that my mother used to share with me as you may know. My mother was a maid. she was beautiful smart funny. She played the piano for a church. She did not play and she always encouraged us to always give back to treat people with dignity and respect to believe in ourselves and to dedicate our lives to service and she actually the two words come from scripture that basically says a tire of doing what is good and so i remember her words and i use them. I've used them throughout my adult life. Use them as a social worker as a police chief. Now in the united states congress. And certainly during this run for us senate and you certainly have lived a life of public service congresswoman. You are the youngest of seven children born and raised in florida. Your father was a janitor. As you mentioned. Your mom was a made. You were also the first in your family to go to college. How much does your.

"Nfl player call seib posted this announcement watch. What until you. Quick to say that i'm gay. I've been meaning to do this for a while. Now finally feel comfortable enough to get it off my chest. I just think that representation and visibility are so important Actually hope that one day videos like this and whole coming out process are just not necessary. but until then you know. I'm gonna do my best and do my part to cultivate a culture that's accepting that's compassionate. I know he's the first active. Nfl player ever to come out as gay. But i mean it's twenty twenty one. Is this a big deal to this. Sarah i mean and what was your reaction when you first saw this. I'm so happy for him. You can see the relief in his face. And i'm happy for anybody watching that video. That feels more empowered to live their authentic self. But in football specifically there's a lot of residual kind of toxic masculinity where people can fleet sexuality with masculinity and those two are not the same thing people have been gay in the nfl playing side by side for years and years and years. But they haven't been able to be embraced to be this comfortable to talk about it. So i think it's so important it's so fitting that it's during pride month but like he said i look forward to a time when your sexuality which is only one part of you doesn't have to be discussed at work like he's doing right now but right now. Representation is so important that i really commend him for taking the time to do this video. Yes but like. I said it's twenty twenty one. I'm surprised it took this long for an nfl player to come out as gay and probably there are others. Yeah i'm listening. The nfl's went around. I think for one hundred years and so Surely this is not the first gay player but this is the first one who identifies such now. You know i've got the sports knowledge of brussel sprout. But yes. I do think this is a huge deal. I know that Locker rooms are a very toxic place. I remember when jason collins came out. I remember when there was another. Nfl player who had been drafted. Whose name of course escapes me. Came out it was a media circus and it was a really big deal the fact that he's doing this that he's going to donate money to the trevor project which is an organization that helps. Lgbtq youth. i do think it's about representation about being seen about being accepted about being embraced at a really strong message to lgbtq who are so vulnerable to being bullied and who has the high suicide rates. So i applaud him. I'm really happy. I might even watch a football game now. And then who does. Does he play with again. Listen don't ask me asking the wrong person. I mean. I wanna set him up. Las vegas is brady. after after. They said penetration.

"While trying to figure out how to make sense of what amounts to seventy five percent of the president's job and one percent of the country's attention the results is nuance and substantive coverage of the delicate dance of diplomacy plus genuine nonsense. So let's focus on that game. We call the world is not enough. Here's how it works. I'm going to ask you both questions about the most absurd moments of foreign trips past tommy. I'll start with you in a scandal dubbed obama gate. President barack obama was accused of leering at a young woman at the he was exonerated. When the video clearly showed that That was misleading and was not true at all but it did not exonerate. The person with whom president obama was standing. Who wasn't absolved by the video footage in the same incident was it surco z. It was it was french. President nicolas sarkozy who seemed to have been actually leering. John over to you quote. It was a mutual and spontaneous display of affection. A buckingham palace spokesman said we don't issue instructions on not touching the queen john who touched the queen Michelle obama it was. It was shelled. Gotta tommy twenty thirteen. The world was rocked when president obama took a selfie at a memorial service who was memorialized and bonus. Easy one was the self take. Oh nelson mandela's funeral. Oh my god. I'm gonna throw a dart at a nordic country estonia. No i was it. Was it the wife of the dutch pm or is it the dutch josh pm. It was the danish. Prime minister helped warning schmidt and who is one other person in that pick. I don't know that is british. Prime minister david cameron. Oh my god. I should've stuck with my guns. And not swerve to estonia. Don me on the estonian itself. Where the estonian leader to get in get in that kind of on who rubbed. Who's back at the g. Eight in two thousand six. George w bush angle mirko one of the weirdest fucking things and it's a really uncomfortable. Video photos obviously forgot where he was gonna get your fucking harms. I'm the chancellor germany. Do you know what we do when we get mad. And finally because it's pride. Tommy john my no homo major domos in two thousand. Nine obama gave queen elizabeth. The second in ipod loaded with songs from classic american musicals named one one fucking song from latin on american musical only ipod. John i know name a song for they cloud memory from cats. We know they're gonna have to guess what song from any musical that i know. It's unbelievable that they got that on honestly. It shouldn't even be there. Shame on them for putting it on their once. Classic musical song five hundred twenty one thousand six is that right seasons of love was on. They're very proud and saw songs. Oklahoma there's no business like show business from annie. Get your gun. Some enchanted evening from south pacific. Everything's coming up roses from gypsy. And if i were a rich man. Zero mastel from fiddler on the roof. Wow exciting to see that there. Hey hey love before we end. I wanna thank Congressman ronnie jackson for the pills on these foreign trips in the memories. You kept me up. You put me down. You're there for me before you became a total maga lunatic. So thank you for the pills in the memories and the erased memories because of the pills or shadow jackson. Leave it in me up all right thank you congresswoman. Val demings for joining us today. I'm glad she didn't have to.

"Most people would probably agree that the whole experience is not fun. Here's some things that i'd rather do than look for a job. Eat dry salty crackers. How 'bout debate the middle east peace process on twitter. Yeah good one as a fun one. Watch a three hour documentary about see slugs timing. I feel like that's something.

"Twenty percent. That's a big difference. But what was remarkable. These people are. It's so they're so greedy and they have been so above the law for so long that they're also applying basically they charge a two percent fee for what they do right to percents Two percent of a billion dollars is a lot of money and they figured out yet. Another way to manipulate the tax code that allows them to pay an even lower rate on that two percent which is just clearly violates the spirit of the law when they've been caught it seems as though they're not doing it anymore because they recognize it. violates the letter of the law. They're number of whistleblowers about this. But of course. The combination of trump the trump administration stacking the irs and treasury department with officials who are extremely friendly to these industries plus the fact that the irs has been gutter. They lost a huge percentage of their of their auditor between two thousand eight in two thousand eighteen minutes. These people are operating with impunity. Ron wyden who is create on this issue and a lot of other issues too pointed out that you are just slightly more likely to be struck by a meteor than you are to be audited for these kinds of practices. I think it comes down to like work in. This country is taxed. Wealth is not or at least wealth as tax very little. That's that's just what is already wealthier accumulating more wealth. You're going to get away with not paying a lot of taxes. If you work you're going to pay your income taxes in the question is what can be done about this from a policy perspective. Because you know. I started off by talking. About sort of republicans refusal to raise the marginal income tax rate or corporate the corporate tax rate. But neither those would actually do anything about what was in the propublica investigation or the new york times private equity story. Tell tommy what what can be done from a policy perspective. Yeah is a huge problem is that they're very clear in the new york times piece about private equity that good tax lawyers basically just run circles around most. Irs auditors anyway in so that makes it hard to recoup any of these funds and in some cases. Even during the obama administration efforts to clamp down on these loopholes actually made it easier for super rich people to evade taxes. So it's a big problem. I do think it's clear that we need to hire more people. The irs and tell them to prioritize audits of the super wealthy longer term. There needs to be some sort of reform of the tax code so that the irs has better tools and laws and regulations available to them to tax.

"Got it okay. John overdue is still still smarting from that. Still smarting right still smarting. Let's get to the news last week. We learned that. Donald trump's justice department secretly seized phone and email records from reporters at cnn. The washington post and the new york times while investigating leaks about the russia probe then on friday. The times reported the doj also secretly subpoenaed apple for the metadata records of seventy three phone numbers and thirty six email accounts belonging to house intelligence committee members. Adam schiff eric swallow their aides their families including a child. The subpoenas turned up zero evidence of any leaks and now senate democrats and president biden's justice department has launched their own investigations into what looks like an unprecedented abuse of power. Something no president has ever done. Not even richard nixon joining us to talk about. What's next year is someone who's no stranger to investigating. Donald trump former house impeachment manager and current. Twenty twenty. Two candidate for marco rubio senussi florida representative val demings congresswoman. Welcome to pad save america. It's great to be with you. Thank you for having me your committee. The committee was the doj's target here. You chairman shift speaker. Pelosi and others have all called for an investigation. Why hasn't anyone in the house threaten subpoenas four former attorneys general. Bill barr jeff sessions to testify yet both of whom denied even knowing that lawmakers were targeted. Well let me just say this as you indicated in your opening statement this is unprecedented or any president in the united states. And how many times do we have to go through this with the former president. He's done a lot of unprecedented things. What i can guarantee you is once again. He has reese all time. Low those in the justice department allow themselves to be used as his weapon against what he perceived as his political enemies and we will get to the bottom of it. And i am sure that we will use whatever tools necessary to make sure that we get the whole truth and the complete truth about exactly what happened. We know the names that have been called including a minor but we do not know the full extent and so we have to know the bullock stand of this unbelievable abuse of power. And i'm sure we will use every tool that we need to get to the bottom of it and so that sounds like that you will issue subpoenas bar and sessions refuse to testify on their own. Well i think it's critical that we find out what bar and sessions new. I mean we've heard their statements. We've heard a bar trodden distance himself helmet. You know i would say it's about time But we need to use whatever tool necessary to get to the bottom of it. And i'm sure leadership in the house will do just that. Of course you know this has been at the top of their minds since the story broke and it will continue to be. The american people deserve to know surly the members of congress their staff and family members a deserve to have a thorough investigation. Quite frankly every member who could potentially be targeted in such a awful way needs to know the outcome of this investigation. What are some of the questions that you want answered From the story. Well you know from the very beginning it seems like this was the president Had a solution first and then went looking for a problem. You know adam. Schiff lead the investigation because of his committee. Assignment is chairman of intel. He was just doing his job. Along with the members of the intelligence committee. It would be nice if the president had chosen to do the exact same thing and so i would particularly be interested in what information. What evidence to the president have that led him to the actions that he was involved in to actually get a have. Those records subpoenaed phone records multiple phone numbers including that of a minor. What probable call us. Did he have to move forward with that investigation. I'd be quite interested in hearing that answer. President biden has ordered prosecutors to stop reporters phone email data for the purpose of leak investigations. Do you think that ban should be enacted as law in order to make sure that future. Administrations can't undo it. You know. I certainly think that we have an obligation. Certainly i think president biden is l. to a great start but we have an obligation to put a laws in place policies or one thing procedures or another but in those areas that we have consistently had issues or problems or in those areas that allow us to have an opportunity to be proactive in our response. I think we always should look to legislation to codify some of the executive orders that the president may have written and so again leadership and we will continue to be looking for those opportunities to make sure that the american people are not victimized. More broadly dis the justice department is doing enough to investigate the wrongdoing and potential criminality of the previous administration. Your colleague Congressman brendan boyle. Told the washington post this week. You know he used to think it was better to look forward and not back but with donald trump. it's sort of impossible to look away because it's just too dangerous not to investigate what happened. Well you know. I share my my colleague brad sentiment right but for me as a former law enforcement officer you always. I believe. have an obligation win There is suspected wrongdoing. Certainly to the gravity of the former president's actions we have an obligation. It's not necessarily about looking backwards or moving forward. It is about the stain that i'd love to say. Everybody counts but everybody is accountable and as you said as she began this particular segment. These.

Spotify is looking to hire a new executive sources say the streaming audio services trying to recruit someone with the Hollywood background to oversee production of the company's original podcasts, Spotify produces hundreds of podcasts worldwide. Back to you, right? Thank you, Jeff. Ryan Gorman in for Jimmy Several Oh, here on South Florida's first news and Manny, We have some pretty big political news here in the state of Florida dropping this morning. Our good friend Marc Caputo over politico. First to report that Congresswoman Val Demings is going to challenge Marco Rubio or his U S Senate seat in 2022, rather Then run for Florida Governor. That's quite a development. So the thought process was that you would really leaning in towards running against Governor Rhonda Santa's, but it sounds like and this was what I didn't understand about her decision. The conventional wisdom seems to be, and I think it's correct that of the two and I think both of them have a solid chance of getting reelected. But of the two Rubio is, is the weaker candidate at the moment, and it sounds like eventually death. Means came around to that line of thinking. And I guess one of the factors recently were run to Santis is fundraising numbers, which have just been through the roof and that, along with different democratic politicos across the country, telling her hey, you know the Senate seat. That's the way to go. We now have Val Demings looking at. It's looking very seriously mark photos reporting that the cheese planning on Running for US Senate rather than governor. So now you've gotta figure Agriculture Commissioner Nikki freed. We thought she was going to get in anyway. She's got this tomb first date as a date that she's been teasing on Social media social probably announce to run for governor then that puts her up against Congressman Charlie Crist for the Democratic nomination on then there were some reports that Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy from Central Florida she was going to enter the race for U S Senate and run against Marco Rubio. So her team has walked that back a bit. And the reporting at the moment is that a Demings does, in fact, get in the race that Murphy likely wouldn't challenge her in a primary so we could be You know, getting to that point now where we know who the potential challenges are gonna be for both Governor, two Santas and Senator Rubio Gonna be a fun race to watch.

"As like markers of what the time period is like an if we don't adequately represent artists of color were not accurately looking at history april. What about you. yeah. I think that is exactly right. I'm not sure that they are as relevant as some people would want them to believe. Would all of us to believe but as of right now you know when we talk about the oscars and the grammys end the emmys. They are still considered the pinnacle in film in music and mtv and so one wants to be recognized and acknowledged by their peers with the most pinnacle award that there is even if it's just something that's going to sit on your shelf and unfortunately may not lead to the opportunities that we would like and casey as you think about the world of entertainment including the world of awards. What are you looking forward to or looking for in terms of the ways that not only the entertainment industry itself but entertainment media makers like you can respond to our times are so i think one of the best places i am. Seeing improvement is like the development of consultation roles. I guess it all someone who covers the industry. I find a lot of value in following groups like color of change which has been doing amazing work analyzing cop shows in crime dramas warp audience perceptions of the justice system. There's this organization called. Hollywood harmful to society provides health science experts to make sure writers are accurately tackling issues like climate change or hiv and aids. And find american which was founded by jose. Antonio argus does a lot of work making sure that immigration story lines on film and television are accurate and human and all of those groups and the experts. That do this consulting. Were in a really do help. Better representation on screen. I would hope in the writer's room to and i think they really show that you don't have to be entrenched in the hollywood system you don't have to be It established writer or an actor to make positive change and get stunning and april wrapping up with you. Any other thoughts on some unsung. Mvp's in the entertainment industry whether it's groups like color of change or you know certainly people like yourself with oscarssowhite but who comes to mind you charles king at macro is doing amazing work And he has just announced that there is that he's been funded to the tune of. I believe ten million dollars. And that money's going to go directly into the communities of marginalized people to make films you know if not at the top of my list is franklin leonard and the blacklist who has been working for years in years to allows three writers to have their work seen and reviewed by others and in fact A film that was previously on. The blacklist is now nominated for an oscar And so you can see the clear trajectory there. You know what. I think we're seeing. Is that again. People are taking the reins in their own hands. Nobody's coming to save us..

"Just one of the most successful songs of twenty twenty of an album went double platinum. That didn't receive any nominations from recording academy. But this point hot is more than about not receiving any recognition for his work specifically. It's about the lack of transparency on the actual nomination process and the lack of brand recognition in general for black artists something that obviously parallels to the academy because there is no transparency on the nomination process and there is a history of very little recognition artists of color and talking about the music industry. This isn't the first time it's happened. You know gave west and frank ocean have also boycotted the grammys for the exact reason. And i think that while begins boycott has definitely drawn recent attention to the issue whether that leads to long term change akron. Recording academy is up to the recording academy. And if they don't change. I think it really calls into question you know. How important should the grammy's fee as a marker of success. And i think the same thing is true of the academy you know if we continually have to ask for representation or You know create our own seats at the table. I think it creates this conversation of you know maybe we should also create new markers success of that recognize artistry in. Let's remember that in a hip hop you know dj jazzy jeff. And the fresh prince boycotted the grammy's decades ago because the hip hop award wasn't going to be televised and then obviously lead to some changes with within the grammy's and so voices are necessary. You know. I wish there had been more support for the weekends. Boycott looking at one of the articles about the weekends boycott and there was a usc. Annenberg inclusion initiative. Study that found that black performers are about thirty eight percent of artists on the billboard. Hot one hundred but they have just been Twenty four percent of the grammy nominees This year and twenty seven percent year to year. I mean in the end april. Isn't this really about money that if you win awards that brings you shine. That can bring you money and that the award systems are way of moving capital in the end. It's always about money that having the that's the bottom line and that is the way that structural change is made however Moving back to film. Because that. That's where i most notable it doesn't always translate into money. It means money for the studio that has made the film but it doesn't necessarily mean increased opportunities for those who actually win the awards Very famously even recently you know this was the year i think that maybe the twentieth year of The anniversary of her winning the first and only oscar ever given to a black woman in the best actress canterbury and she has been very transparent about saying the doors were not open to her and the fact that violet. David still has to audition for roles is beyond me. Just ask her how much she wants. Doublets and sign the contract. That's the way it should be in my head so that's part of the problem that one would think that you know opportunities because your oscar nominee or a grammy nominee or an emmy nominee would just flow like water. But they do not and so then the question becomes what good are these awards If they're only four the gatekeepers because the gatekeeper can say oh. My studio won an oscar for you. Know or someone you know working with my studio one for this performance that maybe allows them to get more things green light but not the actual people who are doing the work the producers the actors the cinematographers. And so on so this may sound super basic. But why do awards even matter. Like what's the deal casey. When i look at oscar nominations and austar winds throughout history. I do see them and historians do see them..

Nothing but devastation. We talk about cannabis card marijuana. A new jersey. Blacks are three times more likely to be arrested than whites for cannabis. Possession despite similar usage rates and with arrests in a whole host of collateral consequences a were talking about pulling people out of the workforce and preventing them from getting a job in the future. And so these are the things that affect not just an individual. Who's arrested but these are things that affect entire family and whole communities. This is a move by new jersey that comes through a ballot initiative and sixty seven percent of citizens who voted decided. It should be legalized. Does it have any impact that this was a ballot initiative decision Or is it kind of irrelevant to what happens next. I don't think it's entirely irrelevant now. In new jersey. We did fight for a number of years to get this done through legislation. But you know when that wasn't possible the legislature that turned to the ballot and let the voters decide whether to legalize cannabis for adults or not in a resounding voice. They said yes. It's my vision. As chair of the kid.

Trump to Visit California After Criticism Over Silence on Wildfires

"Going to begin right now going straight to California, which is facing, of course, record breaking wildfires more than three million acres burned joining me live. Los, Angeles mayor said he Mayor Garcetti, he thanks for joining us. We're seeing these horrific scenes out of the west coast the Bobcat fire burning fewer than twenty five miles outside of Los Angeles as of yesterday that fire destroyed almost thirty thousand acres. It's only six percent contained right now president trump is going to travel to your state tomorrow to meet local officials. He approved disaster relief for your stay three weeks ago. Are You satisfied with the trump administration's response? Well we always have great cooperation with our federal agencies and I want to thank them for that because they do step up whether it's corona virus or whether it's fires but I think leadership at the very top needs to be earlier stronger and from the President I wish that we would get as much attention not based on an electoral map but just. Purely on being Americans and the need for leadership to be from the white. House for all of America You know whether it's twin hurricanes on the Gulf coast or fires here on the West Coast we're one nation and sometimes looking at the leadership that comes out. It's easy to forget that it's taken three weeks I'm glad he's coming but. We need much more help when we have firefighters dying on the line and Washington refuses to help states and refuses to help local governments that are the first responders to emergencies like this. It's unconscionable. So instead of hitting the golf course going on vacation the president, the Congress respectively should sit down this week and finally make sure that there is assistance for. These brave men and women who are protecting our lives and protecting our property well to be clear. What exactly are you saying? President trump in your view would have done differently of California were say a republican state like Louisiana A or other states in the Gulf, Texas what what what would have done differently because he did sure Clare Disaster three weeks ago. Absolutely and I always say that that's very important that those agencies respond. We get good coordination but there's a refusal to blaming of blue states over red states in his mind I remind people there's a million Republicans that live here in the city of Los Angeles even if you're a partisan, you should be stepping up with empathy you should be stepping up with helping with a new cares act when people are slashing local government and state government laying people off this is bad for our economy. This is bad for our emergency response. It's terrible for our corona virus response, and so we need leadership that is equal across this country instead of being partisan and divisive, and it's very clear. This president seems to divide more. He's going to come out here and probably tell us I gonNA send you rakes instead of more help we need actual help material help not based on our party affiliation or how we voted leadership isn't about grudges. It's about governing for all. Well, let's talk about that because. Of Atta Rally last night president trump repeatedly told his supporters that containing the wildfires is all about forest management in. As you note, he's frequently criticised California for failing to rake the forest floors to prevent wildfires What's your response? What are the facts behind this? Well I listen to fire professionals not the president of the United States are politician when it comes to actually what causes these fires It's been very clear that years of drought seeing whether it's too much water and too much rain in parts of our country right now or too little. This is climate change and this is an administration that's put its head in the sand while we have democratic and Republican mayors across the. Country stepping up to do their part this is a administration president who wants to withdraw from the Paris climate. Accord's a later this year the only country in the world to do so Talk to a firefighter. If you think the climate change is real and it seems like this administration last vestiges of the flat earth. Society of this generation, we need real action we need to actually reduce the carbon emissions that we have and we. Need to make sure we can manage that water and this is not about just forced management or raking anybody who lives here in California insulted by that quite frankly and keeps perpetrating this live.

"So here's the thing with Biden's process. NBC reported that he is supposed to meet with all of these potential picks this week by midweek and judging counting on my fingers, let's see mid week that would be tomorrow. So if you're going to meet by midweek that's tomorrow. Hump Day. Kamala Harris, Karen Bass are two of the front runners Susan Rice. She's 100 front runner and then Additionally, NBC says Congresswoman Val Demings from Florida is under consideration. And Senator Elizabeth Warren. But there right now considered the also rans that he is in a position right now where he's thinking Kamala Harris, Karen Bass or Susan Rice for his top three Now, This is pretty interesting, because one we were familiar with Susan Rice. She's you know, a neo con, deeply conventional person in Washington D C very much to return to the status quo. She's very Lying comes very easily to her. She's been doing it for years. She doesn't mind doing it to the American public s o. She would do whatever it is that the Biden campaign needs and restore the status quo to Washington, which everyone's really amped up for. It can't wait to get back to the old days on. That's what Susan Rice would represent. And then there's Kamala Harris, who, for whatever reason, is under consideration in the midst of this giant conversation around police and law enforcement injustice. They decided to go for a prosecutor who treated people deeply unfairly left exonerating evidence off the table that would have helped people on death row in prison people for marijuana usage and then later laughed about her own marijuana usage, flaming hypocrite in all of those ways, so she's out there, both of them rather well known, but there's 1/3 person. And it's congresswoman, Karen Bass from California, and she is one of the least scrutinized people at the national level in all of American politics. And for that reason, Boy, have you noticed how many stories and headlines have popped up in the last few days about her past and about what she has said and done. I wondered to myself if she's regretting being part of this screening process for VP If she's like, Oh, man, the senator not well for me all my skeletons air coming out of the

An insight into Kamala Harris, a potential VP for Biden

"I am Jonathan Kaye. Part AND WELCOME TO CAPE UP. Long before people started swooning over Congressman. Val demings of Florida as a possible vice president. Joe Biden folks. We're talking about senator. Kamla Harris California back in January twenty nineteen few weeks before Harris announced her own since disbanded presidential campaign. I sat with her in front of a live audience at George Washington University for the kickoff tour. For her the truth we hold because Harris's book is a memoir. Our conversation was heavy on stories about parents upbringing and her career. There's no better way to get to know this possible vice president than listening right now. Senator Harris thank you very much for for being here for choosing Washington to be the kickoff of your book tour and or actually to be correct books tour and as we see the truths we hold an American journey and then also superheroes are everywhere. I'm going to focus on the truths we hold k. And I'm going to focus on something that happens before even page one and I want to clear it up. Okay for anyone who might have done this or still doing this. Despite hearing it said correctly the first time pronounce your name Carmela so just think of like the punctuation Mark Comma and that Adalah and there you got and so then what does communism mean then. So it's a very traditional classic Indian name and it derives from Sanskrit and it's it means the lotus flower and so it's very prevalent and a lot of Asian cultures and the idea the symbolism. Is that the Lotus flowers sits on water but it never really gets wet. The water beats off of it and so the idea being that one can be in the midst of chaos or be in the midst of something happening and and be there and should be there and it doesn't necessarily need to penetrate you but one should be there and equally important Its roots are in the mud meaning. It is grounded and and one must always know where they come from and can still be this thing now. I need you to pronounce another name for me for the life of me. I just I couldn't do it. And that is the name of your mother Shammala. So the why is silent Shama Sharmila what was really Shamlan? Go Gopala tell us about your mom. Caller Mommy Mommy. We always called her. Mommy I am not embarrassed to say she is mommy and She is in many ways. The reason I wrote the book my sister my is here My Mother's one of her best friends from college is here. Lenore POMERANZ I write about in the book and my mother was a force of nature. A drill force of nature. She is someone who all five feet of her. If you met her after you walked away you would have thought she was seven Tom. My mother was a truth teller. She spoke the truth. She was probably the smartest toughest and most loving person I've ever known. She raised her daughters with a belief that we could do and be anything. She taught us that. Don't let people tell you who you are and you tell them who you are. She was a scientist. Breast cancer researcher should goals in her life to end breast cancer and raise her two daughters and she would take us to the lab with her at go after school on the weekends and being around scientists one of the things that I realize now early in my life I learned was that one should see what can be unburdened by what has been because that is science is about. It's the pursuit of those things that will improve the condition of life. That will solve problems. That will make things better. And that's why I'm naturally attracted to also anything that is about innovation understanding that innovation. We do it not because we're bored with things the way they've been but because we should always be in pursuit of being more efficient more effective more relevant and and that's what she is and was your father. Donald Harris also an immigrant born born in Jamaica. Yeah an economics professor at Stanford. And let's David. Mind comes from some BRAINIAC parents. Your mom got her. He H D. The year you were born does put that out there so now your dad comes to the United States from Jamaica. Yeah my father was equally brilliant. And is he was a national scholar and Jamaica. He earned his way and up in out and came to the United States into Berkeley to study economics and My parents met when they were active in the civil rights movement. And it's an interesting story because as you know my mother graduated college when she was nineteen and did and so she so she said to my grandfather who was one of the freedom fighters in India for India's independence and my mother was the eldest of four children. She was the oldest at at a girl obviously and she said to my grandparents. She wanted to study science and she wanted to go to what was considered to be one of the best schools and that was UC Berkeley and my grandparents looked at her and said okay. We will put you on a plane and you can go to a place. You've never been at nineteen years old. This was in nineteen fifty nine. So this young this girl. This young woman got on a plane encouraged by her parents to go and pursue her dream now. The back story is also that it was fully expected she would get that degree and go back and have a good arranged marriage but of course my mother having been raised and being who she was just naturally she when she got to Berkeley was immediately attracted to the civil rights movement. Why do you defend? That's where she met. My father was and but I want to say she met my father and decided to have a love marriage and a marriage based on love which I believe is the ultimate act of optimism. The the question that I interrupted. You're you're Satan with. Why do you think she was so attracted to the civil rights movement she was raised growing up? Would go back to India like every other year and And so I know the family from that that that raised her because they helped raise us and it was always about fighting for independence was about finding justice. It was about fighting to make sure that all people had a say in their future in their government an equal say and that was that was in her blood and of course that's what the civil rights movement was about and the free speech movement and and there are some funny stories. I was just sharing with something backstage. You know so I witness I right about in the book you know from my strollers. I view and there's a a funny family story about how some mothers marching with the extended family. I talk about like aunt Mary and Uncle Freddie and the book and she would tell the story about. How DO THEY MARTIN? And this is back when strollers didn't really have armrest seatbelts. Martin Away and you know shouting and and all of that and then I think Mongol Freddie a look down in the stroller which was empty followed up. My mother tells funny story like one day. She was fussing and and you know so much cuter when she would tell the story but she'd say so then she would look down at me and come on. What do you want? What do you want and I look back up in a said fleet on so glad that story. I wanted to hear you safe. We how I wanted to talk about your your father economics professor Stanford they meet atmospherically. Had you and my And you love going to the park and your mom would correct me. If I'm wrong would put limits on you in terms of how far you go. Whatever and your dad would say to you. Run RUN COM run. That's right he would say. Do not be afraid. Let her go let her go. Let her run. You run as fast as you. Can you run as far as you want and I believe that his whole purpose was to say. Do not be afraid and be

Florida Rep. Val Demings on Her Biden Endorsement

"Over the last two years congresswoman. Val demings of Florida has had a front row seat to history. She serves on the House. Intelligence Committee the House Judiciary Committee and she was one of the seven house. Impeachment managers who argued for the conviction of President Trump. And now demings name is being bandied about as a possible vice presidential nominee is she. I totally forgot to ask her about her Harley but I did ask her about trump Florida her support of Joe Biden and yes whether she wanted to be considered for vice president here at all right now congresswoman bowel demings. Thank you very much. For being on the PODCAST. It's great to be with you. So let's just jump right on in you endorsed. Vice President Biden. You are from Florida can he carry Florida In November can a Democrat. Win Florida in November. I have no doubt that a Democrat can win Florida the numbers and Florida's support that But what we're facing assist a matter of turnout and so our job is to make sure that we turn Democratic voters out when we looked at Super Tuesday I think if we watched the voters and listen to the voters the voters are deciding and I thank on Super Tuesday. They were strong. They were powerful. I think they sent a clear message about who they believe can lead our country and move a democratic agenda forward. We saw every demographic turn out and as you know Florida's a very diverse state And I think if what has happened what happened on. Super Tuesday is any indication of what will happen to in Florida's primary. I think that we're going to be in really good shape. Now I'd sort of bounce ahead I did mention you. Endorse Vice President Biden. But there's still contest right now. There's a bird contest you know what what I just feel so hopeful about. We know what we have experienced the last three years almost four now and there is no way. American families can go through another four years of what we've seen And so you know when I look at the democratic feeling as you all know several of my colleagues were in that race what I knew and we heard it quite a bit but I believed it to be true is that anyone on the democratic side would be better than what we have and now we're basically down to two individuals who. I believe if you look at what they believe in what they fought for. Then certainly Will be in better shape. I just happen to believe that one of them Vice President Biden really is the want to carry the agenda forward and really Unify our country. Which is so desperately needed right now. How damaging was it or is it to Senator Sanders. The comments that came out from the the old video of him praising Fidel Castro and then even his defense of his comments about Fidel Castro again from a Florida Lens was that damaging to his effort. Well again you've listened to the people and I think the people and those who represent them spoke loudly and clearly and I won't certainly will not guess about what Senator Sanders Sarah what he meant to say but what I do know. Is that several people who live in our very diverse state. Were upset by those comments. And so you know we're in the middle of a race. We're going to let the let full radiance to But I think you know when you look at Vice President Biden. He has been in the trenches fighting for issues that we care about for a long time fighting for issues that before it was popular quite frankly to fight for them like marriage. Equality issues like climate control. Certainly he's been a unifier along the way and I love what Whip Clyburn said I think most of all he said we know Joe but more important Joe knows us and that's because he's been there fighting for those issues and building those relationships longtime he didn't wait until he decided to run for the most powerful position In the country and so. I think like I said I just. I go back to watch the voters I know. There's a lot of talk about the establishment. I quite frankly find that I am not quite sure what that means when voters turn out in. Great numbers We certainly know how the African American turnout was led by South Carolina I don't know what the establishment means but I certainly know what people go to the polls mean and we saw
