They have their over at M s LSD. Even a bigger freak show than CNN. Although I mean it's close. And they want to know if she favors mandating vaccines. Now why do we care? Valerie Jarrett supports mandating vaccines. She had her way She'd be mandating that everybody vote. Democrat. But she's all for it. So it's important that we hear from her cut 10 go. I'm all for mandating it, but I know here in this country. It's tough to mandate things, but I think what we can do is doctor saw said and say, Look, if you want the independence to make your own decision, fine. We're not going to let you come to major sporting events are schools losing money, even though cities are not requiring vaccines with students come back on campus, and so we're balancing Our rights of freedom with public health, and we don't need your help on balancing anything because you're out of bounds. You're out of balance your unfair and unbalanced. Valerie Jarrett. That's what we all turned to when we went into. How do we balance freedom with vaccines?

"The. Sad part about this was many parts about the thing I think that troubles me most is equal losing confidence in their elected leaders and they're beginning to question them in ways that we haven't and I think in part is seeing. Them, Ero- The social norms that are an important part of our democracy to the laws are Oregon. We also have an added buffer of social norms and those norms. I mean to have a Democrat Republican convention of the White House using the White House proper convention using a church in a Bible as a prop for why he would disperse a peaceful demonstration of Americans with these are things that we just don't do in our country and so we have to. We are fighting for the soul of our country. Joe Is Right. Will meet you answer this next question already but young people typically don't vote. Changes this year I do and I'll tell you I've become a buddy with couple of the kids from Parkland obviously. They experienced the worst tragedy that high school students should have to go through their classmates were murdered and They channeled that anger and frustration as you all know into the largest single-day direct demonstration in our nation since she with March for our lives a few years ago and all about ending gun violence in they travel several of them travel the country in the summer of two thousand eighteen red states blue. States alike registering people to vote about this issue because they thought that that would resonate with young people rather than saying affiliate yourself with artist when people don't affiliate themselves that way necessarily, they said affiliate yourself with an issue and then find out again uneducated voter where two people stand on these issues and they've been very successful in getting young people registered to vote immoral. What what are we? All vote is doing against it is not Carson is to meet people where they are beginning to conversation about tell us the issues. You care about and end to have influencers who will. Can Influence and so young people are the best influencers, rather young people. So I give a huge shadow onto those young people in so many more around the country who are focusing voter. When we vote has an initiative high school students. And College and university students were we're encouraging them and it's obviously hard to do many are not on campuses but to go to their peers than for the first time voters, the evidence shows that way they'd be voting your selection. The chances of you become a lifelong border goes up and so not only do they not vote in high numbers, but we could get them to vote than they will be more likely to be a lifelong voter, and so we're using a whole group of ambassadors who can influence that coke or to go out in and talk about the issues engaged citizen citizenry.

"Connected with Valerie Jarrett, former senior adviser to President Barack Obama, to get her reaction to this moment. When I heard that Biden had selected comma Harris was Just elation. I've known the senator since she was attorney general and I watched her impressive record. They're negotiating with the banks, who were foreclosing on homes of millions of Americans and her tenacious determination to protect Those folks who are in jeopardy and then I worked closely since she's been in the Senate and watched her throughout her presidential campaign, and I just have always thought that she would emerge successful from a very, very competitive field was happy for the historic moment. But I was also happy because I think that A combination of Vice President Biden and center will be formidable in terms of their ability to win. But more importantly, I think that they will leave this country in a very positive direction that I sense we're hungry. So you and a number of Prominent women signed onto a letter addressing sexist and racist stereotypes in the coverage of that VP pick, and not much later, just a couple days later. Fox News host Tucker Carlson mispronounced comma Harris's name and then was very angry when he was corrected on that. Is this the sort of thing that you were talking about? And if so, You said you were going to hold media organisations accountable. Do you plan on doing that? Yes, And I think what my observation would be. Historically, women are treated by a different standard. The focus isn't on substance. The focus is on everything but substance, either its name calling or it's pejorative descriptions of their appearance or their clothes and their makeup for their hair. Lourdes is used to describe women in positions of power seeking political office. There was a very different tone and meaning than weapons. They describe men. And what we're asking for is an even playing field. I am absolutely confident that she could compete, uneven playing field. What is acceptable if have the deck stacked against her? And what also traditionally happened, is it women have not felt that they were in the position to defend themselves. You don't wantto complain? You want to just kind of tough it out. And that's fine for Senator Harris. But we want to be the voices that speak up and hold not just the media accountable, but anyone accountable. Who's using a double standard, we can do it by putting a spotlight on it. We can do it by pushing back both in the press on and directly And I think what I have observed over the last few days as I have done numerous interviews. Is that the media paying attention? They're asking quite directly tell us how to get it right. And that's a conversation we've just never had in our country before. I've never had media may What is the way that we should be covering? What is his store election? But because it's new to have Ah, A woman of color in this kind of a position. People are searching. Now. I would like to think by 2020. We wouldn't be in this position and they would have figured out by now, but they clearly haven't. So have you reached out then to Tucker Carlson, you or the group of women who signed this letter? Well, we were quite director of social media, but I don't think it's going to be Tucker Carlson, who listens to it. I think it's gonna be Tucker Carlson's advertisers who listen to us. I have to get quick break more of my conversation with Valerie.

"So In the words that you referred you who refers to a man is being nasty and it's not just directed at candidates. We've seen a directed in the briefing room at reporters and it needs to stop and I think the fact of the matter is more and more women are now willing to speak up ask our men to say enough is enough and that's how we change our culture. That's how we hold people accountable. Valerie Jarrett. Thank you so much for joining us. Welcome. Very welcome perspective. Thank you. Now. Law Enforcement has long been Harris's ticket from her early days as a prosecutor through her time as California's attorney general, and now she says being tough on crime does not mean ignoring systemic issues, civil rights activists to mckesson spoken to Harry's about exactly these issues and he's joining us now from New York Deray mckesson. Welcome back to our program. Let me ask you as I guess the. Younger generation and more progressive. What is your reaction to the pick of Senator Harris as vice president? Stop saying that like we have to get trump out of here. Right. So I think about Biden, and the range of people who could have been the VP pick is that there are very few options that he would have chosen. That would have been worse than what we got right now. I can't think of any option actually so that like we gotta get trump out the second thing. Is Calmly was already vetted when she ran for president..

"COMES, back for everybody, not just a few and I would mention I was just looking back over a statement that the Business Roundtable Organization of nearly two hundred largest companies in our country.

That was the primary purpose, and they've broadened it to say that stakeholders should be part of that announced for corporations as well.

To be part of the solution to end racism and discriminatory practices. What are we doing? We build our economy to make sure it is revealed for everybody, and then disparities have been laid bare we try to. Have One last question with Valerie and I want to chat with you about your book. Essentially, ask you what readers can expect from you with these new editions about trump era politics. Well I did add two new chapters to the end of because I might be back with finished a year later in a gave me a chance to look at our climate with a little more context and I tried to take a step back and look at it. context of lessons I learned so for example I joined local government because mayor Harold Washington than the elected mayor of Chicago, Progressive Racial Leader and he died just three months after I arrived and the lesson I learned. There is when you have the baton. You have to bake every single day. Count. It's all precious and he you because you never know when something sudden would happen in a sense. heartbreak that that caused in Chicago was still current, and it isn't that we haven't had Progressive Mayor Simpson, but we put all of our eggs in the leadership basket, and I think we need to make sure that we are getting engaging citizens so that when we do have changes. There is enough pressure to keep that momentum. Go and and I. Don't think that happened. When president trump was elected, we're seeing we're seeing enormous amount of activism, and that pressure needs to keep up in a sense. The midterm elections were good example. I mentioned this. Of where? He will have a wake up. Call that elections do have consequences, and and they got out and vote voted and then. The. Last part of my book is really about becoming a grand mom, a grandma to an African American black and Brown grandson and the challenges. He's pointy face. Growing up in this toxic climate isn't a heavy hard, and so it was really what I wish for him and what I wished for his generation. In terms of positive change and I finished it or Would nineteen eighty-four. What we're seeing in terms of the focus on a police misconduct. and. I'm hoping that. He will grow up in a time where we appealed considerably calmer. We are now glad he's just a baby I. Hope this this era of of. Of The historical discrimination racism that we've seen in our country makes a lot of progress. By the time he comes of age I don't look forward to. His parents had to give him the talk that every ever African. Family currently has to give their sons and. Their daughters. Valerie Jarrett. Joining us today, you're welcome. Thanks a lot..

"Much from people. You're going to get disappointed. And when I enter the public domain and move from the law department to the mayor's office and then the Department of Planning Development. I went into the path of lightning as my grandmother. Used to say and was it used to being attached little publicly attacked. I was I was never the prisoner. Put My hand up in class and have people laugh. I was afraid of being laughed at her. Moctar say something stupid Yupik and so I hadn't had a lot of experience really being in the in the path of lightning and I remember the first time my local newspaper did an article that was critical. You went into Mayor Daley. Show them the article he said. Do you see what they say about me every single day in the newspaper. Why are you in here? They said if you don't like what they said go to the editorial board and Defend Yourself. Well first of all. I was shocked. I didn't know I could do that. And second wife was so empowering to say oh I don't have to just take that I can. I can can defend myself. I can use my voice to stand up for myself and what I learned over time is that you have to be able to absorb pain without it Debilitating you and crushing your soul. But also without it making your numb because your job is to listen I mean that's kind of the firsthand services if you're serving someone within you ought to be able to listen to them so that you hear them and I think one of the ways that I cope with it now and I'm not sure I'd dumped into this in the book as much as I would perhaps at at this moment but I think that having gone to public meetings where people were screaming at me at the top of their lungs and worked hard to earn their trust trust and respect and seen over time that I did and became friends with them. Kind of gave me this resilience to say okay. They may start are really angry with me. Were very critical of me but if they get to know me and if we actually open up and talk to one another you can make progress and so that helped me to and then the final final point I would make and this applies to whether you're in the public or private sector or if you are just trying to have a relationship with somebody and that is you do have to to be open and communicate with people you have to make yourself vulnerable. Which means you're going to get some pain and the question is is pain coming your way? The question is what do you do with it. What does it? We'll come your way life. If you live long enough will have some pain and I think surrounding yourself with good people who wish she will and who love you and who are open and honest with you and we'll tell you when you're wrong too is what has given me the resilience and I think there is this whole notion of balance and can you have it all. I think those are outdated notions because there is no balance in life and no. You can't have it all if what you mean gene. Is I want everything I want what I want it all the time and usually for women doing it all ourselves. No none of that works and so I say the question is did you have a whole life. uh-huh did you have people around you when you were working twenty hours a day where one hour with them would give you enough nutrition to go back and fight again and and building. Those relationships is the most important thing we can do. I think it's very hard to be successful in your either your personal or your professional life. Unless you're honest it's an open and vulnerable and willing to listen to people with whom you disagree and again back to your far earlier. Point part of what's wrong right now is that we are so entrenched in our own little echo chambers that were not learning how to be comfortable being uncomfortable and I think the theme back to the point of the pain that I learned throughout my life is at these zigzags and a criticism and hard work and sacrifice all make you much more comfortable being uncomfortable and then life becomes an adventure here here.

"I'm a new summer. Odi and this is Zigzag podcast about the changing culture of business business and work and how people are experimenting with new ways to run. Their companies run their careers and their lives. Today on the show Valerie jared unusual details about her own incredible career including how President Obama dealt with her hot flashes during menopause which she was going through threw in the White House and more about her extraordinary family. One that relished the Zigzag or as she calls it the swerves. The defied signed racism in incredible ways to become some of the most influential African Americans that you have probably never heard of. We saved the step aside for the holiday season.

Various generations gathered together.

"It's real real real. It's in all right. We're laughing. This is no laughing matter. I mean this is serious. It's a little bit of time that we have left. I want to bring you back to the book you were writing about trying to juggle everything being a working working. Mother and I failed to note the page number here. So my apologies but you talked about the fact that at that time women were all about in the workplace all about showing. How you're you just like the guys like nothing else was different? You're just like the guys and you take and you write about your science not saying anything. My silence stemmed mostly from my shame feeling alone as though I were the only overwhelmed working mother. I told myself that if I was just smarter more organized and more efficient if I just tried harder and slept let less. Perhaps it all wouldn't be so hard. As women of my generation fought to gain equity in the workplace. We made an unspoken pact to pretend even to one another that we had added all under control. We didn't we couldn't possibly. WHAT IS THE HOPE A? Here's a smattering of golf applause. But working mothers what what do you say to. Or what did you say to Laura. What do you say to Laura's friends? This next generation of young women who are trying to juggle it all. Are they more aware and more open to no longer being silenced or has that been carried over generation. You weren't with any millennials any lls. Oh yeah they're not so quiet about the stuff which is good. I obviously have a great relationship with my daughter and I've always talked very openly and I told her the mistakes I made made trying to like Ginger Rogers and Fred astaire dancing backwards with high heels on and I thought that it was important to prove my worthiness by pretending there was no life outside and I thought that if I didn't do that then the guy's wouldn't take me as seriously and when I started verbalizing what was going on in my life. Can I was in an environment where people actually cared. They responded to my needs. I mean I had a great mentor. Who supported me in crazy way? She'd come to my home after work so I could put lowered a better than we would work after Laura went to sleep. Most people aren't going to do that for you but if I had never told her I was a single mom and I needed to get home for bedtime. Then how would she. She has ever known. And so I am encouraged that the next generation is a little bit more willing to first of all to expect more from the partners their spouses says in terms of contributing. I know my daughter and her husband have had many a conversation about their expectations. Parenting we just gave him a baby shower yesterday and it was co coed and people were like well. Why are the guys coming to the shower? And I said from the beginning. They're starting. This is a partnership. And they're doing this together. He laugh you chocolate show. It was fun no games. We didn't play games but I think part of my message is look the question is can you have it all well. We set an unrealistic expectation to having it all means doing everything thing to perfection. And I thought I was super human and I could do it off could work all day. I could come home. I could put Lord Abed a work some more and then I would make baby food it from scratch in the middle of the night what was I thinking. Don't do that to yourself. Don't set yourself up to think that everything has to be absolutely absolutely perfect and I think the best example of that would be Laura. When I started my book tour? Laura flew out to Chicago and interviewed with me and the person who was moderating in the conversation asked Laura what surprise you in the book about your mother and my daughter said I had no idea she felt so guilty. She said she was a perfect mom from vervins point not from mine from mine. I was a lousy mother and I and I was lousy everything when she was really young. And that's not how she saw the world and so I think I want working the parents to give themselves a little bit of a break to realize that you are doing a great job and don't let perfection be the definition the Almighty comparison exactly but also to remember that life has multiple chapters and they each have trade-offs and you make decisions and then you have to live with the consequences of those decisions but for me. Okay what I realized when I started listening to my voice and I started realizing how much power I could have if I spoke up and I started making decisions where I listened to the gut inside of me as opposed to what everybody else was defining as my life. That's when the adventure began not craving the comfort of the straight line that I had charted out for myself but the exhilaration that comes from taking advantage of opportunities at knock at inopportune moments and the exhilaration that comes from being scared to death about trying something new and then figuring out. Oh I can do that and conquering and then swerving again. So Zigzag Jack Is my message to young folks. Your word is embraced zagging in Michelle Obama's book. It's a brace to the swerve. All of the above because of of Michelle Obama and I both had not swerved out of what was expected of us into public service. Who knows where we would all be today right right you might be married Chicago? You decided not to run for Mayor Chicago because you didn't want to be an elective office. I thought about it long and hard at one point in my life I thought about throwing my hat in the ring to replace President Obama when he was first elected in the Senate and I think in the end I have come to appreciate that there are many ways to serve and you have to do a gut check before you do elected office and just as I described my early days isn't city government where it's twenty four seven and people come up to the grocery store in the dry cleaners and lobby your daughter. All of that is what you have to be prepared for when you run for office US and at this stage of my life. Don't hate me but I wake up every single day and I do exactly what I want to do right. I mean I worked really hard to get to this point and I work. I think as hard as ever but on issues I care about and I define them is at the time I I said the place I determine the agenda and I also really looking forward to being a grandmother and I don't want to be a public official when I'm trying to be a gramma Emma. Let's just me. Everybody has to make their own decision. So we started this conversation by talking about the mantra of your parents about your willingness to work hard and be resilient and have a little luck and you can only take advantage of luck if you are fully prepared and it's right right after. President Obama has been elected on election. Night there's a sixty minutes interview you're sitting with your parents watching this and I'm going to read what you wrote at the end of the interview. My mother looked over at me. How did you know that he could win? She asked not that he would but even that he could because because of you too I said a bit surprise in my voice because you both raised me to believe that if you work twice as hard as anyone else and sacrifice for what you believe leave in and luck is on your side. The Sky's the limit. She shook her head and said softly. I never believed any of that. And the kicker my dad chuckled and said he agreed with her Valerie. The Best Party lift the rest o houses i. I'm sorry. I stared at them in disbelief. For the first time I realized my parents had raised me. ASPIRATIONAL instilling in me. Said of core beliefs that they didn't actually hold themselves elves that. Here's the best line that I did. Underline this their gift to me was not to shackle me with their.

"By my willingness to work hard and be resilient combined with a good bit of luck my mom and dad had taken me across the color line and around the world showing me what what was possible so that I could dare to imagine any kind of life I wanted and so there's no better way to start this conversation than talking about your parents. Jim Bowman and Barbara Taylor and also the fact that you were born in Iran. So why on Earth were you born in Iran. And what took Jim Bowman amd Barbara Taylor to Iran in the first place I get that a lot. Like what on Earth are you doing there. So that's where my mother was where she gave birth. So that's why I was born there and my parents. Well let's see so Barbara. Jim Bowman. My mother grew up in Chicago and my father grew up in Washington in DC and they met and fell in love and got married right. After my mother finish college my father was doing his residency in Chicago. My father got signed up for the military and he was in the army and when he was leaving the army a couple of years later he was looking for a job at a major teaching hospital in the United States. He wanted to do research but the largest by training and he could not find a job at a major teaching hospital in a position that would be comparable to his white counterparts. And so he and my mom who I will tell you where adventuresome spirit to say. The least decided well. Let's look for opportunities outside of the United States and so after much due diligence and searching Ching he landed a job offer cheering the department of pathology and helping to start a brand new hospital in Shiraz Iran and so off they they went they knew nothing about the government. The language the culture they never been any further than Europe by that point in time their family said don't go what are you thinking about. Ah Now obviously. The United States in Iran had very strong diplomatic relations at the time thank goodness and so they went and so he went from being considered needed a black doctor with a brick on his head to an American position judged by the merit of his accomplishments and he thrived and Sharon and I was the the second baby born in Mazi hospital. They practiced on some of the baby. I we're still not quite sure what happened there but I came along as number two and we lived there until I was five and from there. My Father Wallin Iran. He started doing research on fava beans. We're not gonNA talk about the father being researched but look it it up if you want to was groundbreaking research and it calms the attention of folks at the Golden Labs at University College London and so after five years my parents decided it. It's time to start migrating their way back home so they went to London for a year. And don't you know. He gave some paper at an international conference while he was at the Galt labs and it caught the attention of the dean of the University of Chicago Medical Center. I know and he got offered a tenure track position in my mother's hometown in the community where my grandmother and my aunt and a huge extended family had settled when the restrictive covenants were deemed unconstitutional and by people in Chicago. Were free to move anywhere. They all moved into Hyde Park. And so there we went and it's interesting because when I was growing up my dad always said to me sometimes times shortest distance to where you WanNa go means you have to be prepared to take the long way around. Well they certainly took the long way round but he spent the rest of his career right where he always always wanted to be at the University of Chicago and he was the first African American to receive tenure at the University of Chicago's division of Biological Sciences. Thank very much so acute. Remember if it's before they went to Iran. I think it's after they came back and he went to work and they told him and not to come in on this or so when my father went to Chicago. He was the first african-american a lot of that. He was a trailblazer to do his residency agency. At Saint Luke's Hospital in Chicago as where he and my mom actually fell in love and decided to get married and they told him he could not live in the dorm. I'm for the other residents which was on the property. Because he's black of these the only black one there and they said we can't live with the other residents so he had to commute to work five miles back at then in the Black Community by streetcar. Not An easy thing to do while everybody else is getting a good night's sleep. He's been an hour each way on the street car and then they also awesome. You have to come in the back door. And he's like you know what I'm not going to the back door. That is a bridge too far from me and so the first working went in the front door and no one said they think and that's kind of how Chicago they have these rules. But if you didn't abide by the maybe something happened. Maybe it didn't and so the next day when he showed up at work all of the Black folks that worked in the hospital so the orderlies and the nurses in the administrators were all gathered in the front of the hospital and as his story goes everybody walked in the front door or and that was the end of that bill and so that is used the perfect word here. And that's trailblazer. My favorite chapter after in the book is entitled Inheritance or the inheritance and her father. Isn't the only trailblazer in the family family. I'm just GonNa read this and you correct me where I get it wrong. Your great grandfather Robert Robinson Taylor became the first black student to attend 'EM. Mit Eighteen. Eighty eight in. His father was a slave. His father was born. A Slave Wilmington. North Carolina was freed during after the civil war and started work as a carpenter and decided that the path forward was education for his son so he saved enough money and who knows what he thought out of MIT. But that's what he thought of. My grandfather was accepted and then he went to mit. And I used to always imagine what was that train ride from Wilmington to MIT. Not like for my great grandfather. And what was his father thinking seeing as child go off north where. I'm sure he had never been before so he was a trailblazer who will. Oh keep on. Robert Robinson Taylor. He then went on to become America's first accredited black architect. He was hired by Booker. T. Washington to build buildings to Ski Institute Right. That's right I know but wait. There's more the your great great grandfather. Victor Rashawn was one of the first black legislators voted into the Louisiana House of Representatives during reconstruction destruction. But wait. There's more your grandfather Robert Rashawn Taylor graduated from the university the of Illinois with a degree in business and he is the person for whom the rubber Taylor houses were named for. Yeah not our proudest moments family. which which you write about in the book then I think either you or your mother like it pained either of you to drive by well so my grandfather father just for a second was a businessman and he was successful in banking and insurance and he was asked to chair the Chicago Housing Authority that oversees all the public housing in in Chicago and he had a vision for public housing? That involved making sure that it architecturally blended into the community so that it didn't stick out. It was indistinguishable extinguish -able. He thought they should offer social services and job training opportunities so that it would be a temporary waystation. People could move on from there. He believed that there should be strict rules of behavior and conduct and screening so he was kind of a person way before his time and finally. He resigned from the Housing Authority and frustration ration- because he couldn't get the Chicago City Council no surprise to allow him to build housing in areas that were white entered the restrictive covenants. All the black people live in one place smell the way people live somewhere else so he resigned and he also believed that housing should be low density and that you should have a front yard and a backyard and a sense Savona ship and feel responsibility and that doesn't come with big highrise monstrosities and so there was a certain irony six years after his death when Bayer daily dedicated hated the largest public housing development. I sixteen high-rise buildings right along the Dan Ryan Expressway in Chicago and he named him after my grandfather and so I attended attended the opening and it was always mixed emotions. There are people who are moving out of horrible tenements into these brand new buildings and for those families. This seem like a step up and a sense of progress but I overheard my grandmother and my mother and my aunt talking and the conversation was refreshed every time I am on the nightly news. You'd see Robert Taylor. Homes always associated with something terrible and they said it was the exact opposite of his vision for public housing. And that's your your father Robert Taylor. Successful in real estate and banking became the first black chairman of the Chicago Housing Authority in Nineteen Forty one. And I'm sorry that's is your Grandpa your grandmother. Who you're you're mother's father Barbara Taylor? She went to Sarah Lawrence. She's an educator she met and married your father on June seventeenth nineteen fifty to sixty nine years ago last week. Talk about your mother. Barbara Taylor now Barbara Bowman well first of all. She's ninety which is hugely important right. She made it to ninety. She still works fulltime. I know she goes to work every day. She drives drives yourself. That's another story. I'm trying to get a ride. Live time on the board of lifting on my mom you can ride lifted. You could go on come anytime you want to. She's like to drive myself. But that says a lot about Barbara but she's also quite frugal. So for example when I went to college she calculated what every class ask cost every class and she gave it to me on a piece of paper and said if you're ever tempted to cut class this is what it's GonNa cost your father and made but my parents love me unconditionally. Provided me with an enormous safety net to take all kinds of chances just as they had knowing that they would catch me the and they set very high expectations in terms of effort. Is Jonathan mentioned early on. They didn't care what I ended up doing. They just want to work hard. And be determined and resilient and and give it my best and that was no guarantee it. My parents look. You have to work twice as hard. They never finish that sentence but I knew what they meant. But if luck breaks your way the sky is the limit and don't let hard work prevents you from try for your goal and so that was kind of the spirit of how they raise me and my mom and my dad or polar opposites in only one way in that. My Dad's sees glasses like ninety nine percent full always and my mother no matter how good things are she is planning for the disaster and in fact the worst fight they ever had was over how they were going to spend the lottery proceeds from a lottery that they had not yet nor did ever win. My Dad had all these expansive plans and my mom was like paying taxes on it and setting up trust accounts and I think maybe five dollars leftover and they literally had an argument. They stopped upstairs fussing about this lottery proceeds and I was like shaking. My head was very very embarrassing. My boyfriend was home from law. School staying at our home and he's like do they fight like this all the time I said. I've never seen anything quite like it but I know one thing they will not go to bed. Angry agree and in fact they did figure out how to make up and they never won that lottery but they had very very different approaches to the world. And I think I'd tell towards my father and my optimism but my mom always said to like if things don't go your way you'll be fine and there was that sense even within her with our practicality that you just have to figure out another way of one way doesn't work just like they went off to Ron. We'll they knew swerve. And figure out your own path. What you talk about the safety net of family and community community there in Chicago? But that didn't mean you were immune to hardship by Harvard..

"What's your question for Valerie Jarrett about the state of play in Washington right now back in Chicago. What are you hearing her story? Follow us on Twitter and find us on Facebook where they're at on point radio with me from Chicago is Valerie Jarrett. Her new book is called finding my voice my journey to the west wing and the path forward after an auspicious start to the presidential primary season in two thousand eight with a victory in the Iowa caucus, Barack Obama implored his supporters to remain optimistic following defeat to Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire primary. When we have faced down impossible odds when we've been told we're not ready or that we shouldn't try or that we can't generations of Americans have responded with a simple creed that sums up the spirit of people. Yes, we came. Valerie, Jarrett talk about that moment when it lost Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, and you write in the book, you know, a lot of people felt very sort of defeated within your camp. And here was Barack Obama out. Yes. We can. Yes began. What was that moment? Like for you. Well, when I heard his voice, I actually got goosebumps Jane because I remember being in the stadium when he gave that speech, and it was such a shock. We thought we were going to win. We were ahead of the poll in the polls, I stopped paying attention to polls after that night. And there was that defeat and after I think we all felt invincible, and it was such a reminder as he said that night. Look it shouldn't be too easy. And that just because the journey isn't quick doesn't mean it isn't righteous in that we have to travel the country and allow him the time in the space to earn the trust in the respect of the American people and because the primary went on as long as it. Did it took us all? Around the country, and it actually made the general election easier because it had given him the opportunity to introduce himself to the American people. And so that night I felt so inspired by his words, and the sense of taking defeat in saying, this is a moment where we just have to dig deeper, and it inspired people. I think even more than a victory that might might have done. I finished Michelle Obama's book. Just before I read yours, and I sensed a strong theme in both of those books the importance of mentorship. You mentored Michelle Obama, Michelle Obama, of course, mentored many women even before getting to the White House talk about the lessons, you learned from from mentoring and from being mentored. Well, I'll begin with being mentored because I was fortunate when I worked for city government under mayor, Harold Washington, initially, I had a mentor name Lucille Dobbins and she oversaw finance and development in the mayor's office, and she took me under her wing and really. Supported me in more ways than I can count. And she supported me by stopping by my home in the evening. So I could spend time with my daughter, and we will work after my daughter went to sleep. And you know, what client does that? But she knew I was a single mom and I needed to get home. And so she was flexible and helped me meet the very important needs of motherhood, and she also pushed me hard over and over and over again as for promotion, and that's something that often were very hesitant to do when I think women more so than men and Lucille was determined that. I was going to go in there and explain why I deserved..
Puerto Rico governor on Trump: 'If the bully gets close, I'll punch the bully in the mouth'
"Breaking news tensions are escalating between President Donald Trump and the Puerto Rican governor over disaster relief efforts relief efforts that have been slow in coming for the still battered. I went after hurricane Maria in an exclusive interview with CNN Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello said he will not sit back and allow us officials to be bullied by the White House. If the bully gets closed, I'll punch the bully in the mouth, it would be a mistake to confuse courtesy with courage. Russillo. Top aides told CNN that during a tense encounter at the White House on Wednesday. They were warned by senior White House officials that representatives for the US territory were pushing too hard to arrange a meeting aimed at discussing the islands dire situation with the president despite their requests Trump has declined to schedule a meeting with Celo to discuss recovery efforts that have been going on for two years after the storm hit according to Puerto Rican officials White House trade advisor Peter Navarro along with other senior officials all but threatened the island's wraps during the meeting, quote, you guys have to blanking stop with the meeting. Request one official said according to the Puerto Rico Puerto Rican officials your governor is blanking things up Navarro added according to sources at the meeting a White House official denied that Puerto Rican officials were told to stop requesting a meeting with the president and a spokesman. Said the administration would continue working with russillo and his aides on recovery efforts. But he stopped short of saying definitively. The president would meet with the governor in the future. Russillo. Here's the thing. If you wanna talk about punching the president in the mouth or punching him in the face that's not a way to get a meeting. I don't know how you get meetings. But if I call somebody up in LA or New York or Texas or San Diego here, and I I'd love to get a get a couple of minutes with you can't get a couple minutes with you about this. That's to go different than. Hey, I want to see you. And I don't get to see you is going to be a problem. And oh, by the way, if I don't like to tone. You're taking with me when I see you. I'm going to punch in the mouth punching in the mouth that may maybe that flies. Maybe that flies down in San Juan. And that's how you get stuff done in your administration. But that's not how that's not how you get it done with the president. Can you imagine if a governor safe from Texas in the wake of the Fort Hood shooting that Barack Hussein Obama said was workplace violence? So let's let's imagine. It's governor Rick Perry. And Rick Perry says I am sick and tired of this of this response from the White House when I see Obama. I'm gonna punch him in the face. Oh my God. Are you kidding me? Valerie Jarrett would personally drive the Cadillac were. They would put Rick Perry into the trunk of the car and Hillary Clinton would dispatch him, Arkansas style, man. I mean, he would have no chance it would be over. It would be over. Are you kidding me? But this guy says I want meeting or else or else or else? What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do yourself? How come nobody's talking about impeaching russillo? He's had two years. White House recently helped set up important meetings between russillo and hod and FEMA we understand the governor's not visiting until later in April. We look forward to once again, helping set up productive conversations with administration leaders to discuss the island's recovery. The spokesman Judd dear said the battle this week between the White House and resellers office erupted after it was reported. Trump told Republican senators on Capitol Hill that he questioned the wisdom of directing more storm relief aid to Puerto Rico, despite the fact that billions of dollars in funds have already been authorized by congress in closed door meetings with Senate Republicans Trump went out of his way to point out the totals of disaster relief aid that has been distributed in the wake of storms and hurricanes in two thousand seventeen it is a pet issue for the president. He mentioned Puerto Rico's finances and total disaster relief in negative terms repeatedly in meetings with lawmakers and staff as they've worked through iterations of the next disaster relief Bill the point was are we spending the money wisely said Lindsey Graham, I have nothing against helping the people of Puerto Rico, but we have got to spend the money wisely. Trump senators said then utilized a chart that showed the difference between what Puerto Rico has received compared to other hurricane affected regions like Texas and Florida at one point Trump noted Puerto Rico has gotten more than ninety billion in aid. While congress appropriated twenty billion in disaster funds from the department of housing and urban development, only a small fraction of that a billion and a half is approved for actual spending. Legislation that would send more funds to the island is part of a larger disaster relief package have been tied up in the Senate. So Why's reseller wanna punch Trump in the face? Why don't you wanna punch Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer and the face what the president? He doesn't run the Senate. The Trump administration is committed to the complete recovery of Puerto Rico the island has received unprecedented support and his on pastry. Tens of billions of dollars from tax payers, fellow taxpayer. However, the Trump administration will not put taxpayers on the hook to correct a decades old spending crisis that left the island with deep rooted economic

Tim Allen Breaks His Silence on Roseanne Barr's Firing: 'She's Just Not That Person'
"That if the deal goes through where disney buys fox that the simpsons could be displaced because disney wouldn't want somebody else's animation on their on their network that can't be right can it it's not actually as it turns out we're in the middle of the television critics association tour we're all the networks present you schedules shoes two television critics Kayla Cobb is out there right now she's actually jump into the day but yesterday was the day and of. Course they're right up front right at the beginning about the whole merger and said basically not much is going. To, change at least that's the plan right now in terms. Of Disney taking over FOX, referring to it as a quote unquote FOX which is not an official name. But that's what they're going with the moment and. They said that programs like. The Simpsons will most likely continue on FOX because. It's such. A part of a brand they don't wanna change, too much if I was. To speculate beyond what they said the big thing that most likely will happen is you have this forthcoming Disney video on demand service and you'll probably see things like the Simpsons that ever really, huge back? Catalogue of episodes at going over to that so you'll be able to watch the old episodes. There instead of potentially things like app asks, plaster affects now But in terms of watching it off the channel I think. You'll be fine you won't have. To change too much good very good news looking. Very forward to Monday better call Saul the season premiere I have to say I love breaking bad and when Bob Odenkirk and saw showed up on that show I'm like this so so serious he's just this foil. And I don't know if it fits and now I ended up liking better call Saul better than breaking bad I, have, to agree with you completely I cannot. Believe it but it the show is wonderful it's phenomenal it's a beautiful show it's a slow show but the way. That I I was talking to somebody about it the other day around the office is it's purposeful, there's a lot of shows. That have Dallas the age of peak TV have, just very long targeted looks. But they don't really feel like anything they, feel like they're supposed to be saying something everything, is better call solve needs. Something and without spoiling, anything I've actually seen, the first couple of episodes of the next season and it's. As good as. Ever if not. Better breaking bad fans, are gonna freak out about the things that happened throughout the course the episodes again no spoilers and in particular It isn't exactly but she has been. Sleeping, on. Race seahorn plays Female opposite, Amish show but if this season does not, win her an EMMY just based. On the episodes I've seen alone there is no. Justice with oil she started out slow in my book to boys, she has a very deadpan delivery and I'm not really a fan and then she totally grew. On, me to wear just blossomed in just such, a fantastic character yeah there were a if you watch the show there. Was some big events. That happened to the end of last season a major, character died she her character ended up in this awful car accident and if, they don't let go of that in the first couple of episodes they deal with it and delve, into it and the emotional weight of all that at in particular a lot of. It is. On her on her character? And it's beautiful heartbreaking work it's wonderful where did she come. From I don't know? That I'd ever, seen her in anything else anything before. The show I'm usually pretty. Good at noticing actors and actresses like that but I, never saw her before she came out of nowhere and she's really good she, was comedian she sort of bounced around for a while she was with me the wooden coming show, a couple of years she was on a show called I'm with her head cases. And other. Things but like you said? This was something where she popped onto better call Saul and. Suddenly completely blossomed wonderful Myself in aluminum foil and one of those blankets and watch the upcoming By, far the best for fans of twenty, four it may be coming, back but it may be coming back twice explain This is from the FOX TV a day it seems like they're not. Totally clear on what they, wanna do other than, the fact that. They love twenty four and wanna keep making it forever whether it involves keep yourself they're not right now there's two ideas one of them is. A twenty four prequel that would focus on Jack Bauer at what brought him up cheerio at the beginning of twenty four and then the other one which I think is actually. More interesting and much weirder is a legal drama in the style, of twenty, four and in the world of twenty, four so where you've had Jack Bauer and then in twenty four legacy, Corey Hawkins character kind of jumping. Around the world inciting people this way to follow the legal reprecussions of all those things or at least that's the idea and that's almost weird enough to work with the gimmicks still be there that each episode each one hour episode is? One hour of twenty four, hour day or are they scrapping that. Idea I don't know but my guess is they would keep it just because I remember them talking about twenty. Four legacy when that came, out and they felt like that was such a part of the DNA of the series that they really can't lose that conceit right so I think. That will remain integral going forward I always thought to make that, gimmick realistic, let's say you sleep six or seven, hours out of the day six or seven episodes should just be your, main character sleeping when that's he. Funny one hundred percent I mean you can watch big brother I love that show and I'm not caught up so what will happen to Julie Chen if something happens to les Moonves says By the way. Someone has, texted us and said Bill. And the decider which is of course Alexander who. Works for decider dot com it said? That Colbert definitely did name moon van I The. Name that's more interesting if he, says, wow. Fascinating Tim Allen has been on the news in the news, lately Yesterday he was? Kind of defending Roseanne Barr talking, about, it. Did you get a chance to hear any of his quotes I did we. Wrote it up for the site a little bit you know Keeps being upfront again this is stuff from TC a. They're talking about last man standing which is bumping from ABC over to FOX they talked. A, little bit about how the show will change, or now that's on, FOX basically they're not gonna come right out and say he's a Trump supporter. But he's definitely going to be conservative as he was. Previously on the show they also talked, about how they're pickup of last man standing was specifically because. Of the success whereas which. Led, it to his conversation where he talked about I know Roseanne. My daughter. Well she. Sets weird things about her being the most diverse person. He does Doesn't really. Make sense And and he also, said some pretty frankly without getting around without it where things for older comedians about who's, making, up, these doubt, comedy. Benthic PC culture etc so it, wasn't anything too shocking particularly if you're installing to knowledge clear in the. Past couple of years but he also do outright, come out and say I support what Roseanne said about Valerie Jarrett. Or anything like that thank God for FOX footy didn't sticking with the fact that his show got cancelled because he is a. Fan of Donald Trump's. He's sticking by that that's so nice Oh yeah It was worth a rating stellar for. That show that's what. Confuses, me The ratings were very good. It was, I believe in number two comedy on TV at. The, time but, frankly in terms, of broadcast, TV ratings are. Not great overall you know you. Have Keeble, you're streaming you're of everything differentiating where people, are watching TV so frankly even if you had a really. Popular comedy that doesn't mean that it was right for ABC going forward and. ABC is changing a lot of its programming going into the, new season they're changing both. The drama and the comedy side FOX's. Well pivoting away from one camera comedy is. Back to, three camera comedies so there's a lot of changes going on and honestly I, would point more towards overall network things rather than anybody's particular political leanings tell Tim Allen that. We already know that We're, done with you on that people like you I I, mean it was, funny but it's kind of the same delivery of what he's. Doing. Sure last man, standing I've watched a couple. Episodes it's. Okay I just don't understand the. Big I'm baffled by, it but it has been very, popular but, I'm I'm confused by. Myself. Alex great to talk to. You and, again if you had to pick something big to watch this, week it's probably better call Saul right over on. AMC, yeah. Absolutely if you're not caught, up go into the, season it's all on Netflix right. Now leading fourth, season which premieres on. Monday it's. Fantastic you won't regret. It. Good and preachers getting very weird and. Dark so, weird, dark, Betty Buckley jump on. Board I'm. Sorry I love that. Show Basically turn. Your. TV on AMC and never. Turn it, off that's the way it'd be it all right well thanks, Alex appreciate it have a great weekend it's Alexander's. From, decider. Dot com.
