Jennifer Carroll Foy: Lets run and win!
"Jennifer welcome to the PODCAST. How are you I? AM good good Thank you for having me. Here of course I'm so excited for everyone to hear from my plus one from the she. The people list and learn why I just had to choose you. First question is winded your love of politics begin. Believe my level of politics began when I saw that. Being in a position of power away to make real change, and so I was just you know, gripe all the time about being in traffic traveling, you know two hours to go twenty miles and Why are schools segregated employees funded? And you know trying to help my foster children, and there's so many a deficits in the system. And why weren't anyone speaking about? These issues got frustrated with those things that I wanted to be a part of the solution to solve a lot of these problems and I figured out with early that politics. Politics is a way to do it. That's the way that you are invited to the table and Your brother's decisions are being made, but we're definitely GONNA dive into all the amazing work that you have done, but you are a laser in so many ways. You became one of the first black woman to graduate from the historically. All Mel Virginia Military Institute, which just Kudos to you I did Air Force Junior ROTC in high school. That was enough for me, but what made you apply? And what were you thinking when you got accepted? So I applied to Virginia. Military Institute because I was watching the Virginia Military Institute. Supreme Court decision on TV. Them is one of the top military colleges in this country, and they spent millions of dollars to keep women out of doors. And when I was in that high school classroom I remember hearing men in the class. They think like women don't belong where fear your. We can't run as fast as hard and we're not as smart. And I remember hearing justice. GINSBURG say basically that women can do all things if given the opportunity and I agree. And Tokyo's men that I'm just smart and just as capable and powerful as any man in that class, and I mentioned. So is that that time that my best friend? He was going to go to west point, and he walked up to me, and he said I'm going to go with you when you go to them. I because I want to be there to watch you when you fail. Even dough right? We were friends. Don't forget them still female and therefore interior. So I looked at him, and said challenge accepted. And, so he went to BMI, so did I and other meal in our class. And when they got their head shaped ball, so did I and they gave me a management for 'cause. The might have changed any of his standards for women. And actor years of marching wedding and bleeding beside over a thousand male cadet. Out of the other two men who with me to be a month, I'm the only one who of us walk across that. Virginia military stage, and so that's what I would lie and that's why I'm happy that I graduated succeeded. Oh my goodness, so we know that was not the first time he had to deal with men. Telling you that you couldn't do something. It wasn't your turn. You also experienced this. When you ran for office when he ran for Virginia. Delegate, you were not the quote. Unquote preferred candidates by Iran. Anyway you did our emerge boot camp. You are my emerge sister and you also ran your campaign while pregnant with twins. So tell everyone just the whole story about when made you WANNA run running for office while pregnant and just the entire experience of knowing that you were the best candidate to represent your district. Yeah, absolutely, so I decided to run in two thousand seventeen, because you know I was just tired of the partisan politics and the divisive rhetoric that was happening, and I always thought. How could we lack someone so bigoted and racist and xenophobic and homophobic to the leader of the free world and I knew then that we needed a response to talk. We needed a response design of politics that were happening in Richmond where they were trying to pass. A transactional ultra sank town bill and they put politically. Politically motivated and medically unnecessary restrictions on women's reproductive health care, or they weren't fully funding education in a way that makes sense, and so I decided to do something about it, and being one of the first public defenders ever like Virginia. General, assembly when I was practicing as a public defender I just saw so many of the inequities in our system, and how we have a two tier criminal justice here, Virginia one for the wealthy, and by themselves out of prison in one for everyone else. And, so I knew I could continue to be you know a community organizer in foster mom, and do all these things to help the community and fight against that laws, or I could become a delegate impact. Good one. So those are the things that really put the fire and leave me in order to for office while pregnant was not just one with two baby. And you know run against what was pretty much. Thought is as the establishment candidate who had all the endorsements? He outraced me four to one, and it didn't matter because I knew that I was the better candidate, and even though I could. I would be outraged. I knew that I would never outworked.

They don't want him to have that way out when they ask him. For instance. Did you promise the president that you'd try to critique of the Muller investigation in order for him to appoint you as the acting attorney general today has has said that they've got the subpoena ready to go if he tries to go to executive privilege route.

"Who would think in the little town of lexington virginia which is home to vm the virginia military institute with a story past that you would find something like this and you know only social media could you have a situation where it would get to become this level of of red hot and you know i think that sarah sanders has taken her more than her share of abuse this year so far by the way she was treated at the correspondents dinner and now this and i know i we can talk further but my my basic point or my feeling about this is that our discourse which has been really going into a downward spiral for a very long time has now gotten to weigh critical point where you can't even go out and have a meal if you have or you you are working for somebody who doesn't have the same beliefs as the restaurant owner or shop owner do and it just it seems to be an awful balkanisation of our politics in in outside the political spectrum into our main street dhs secretary we had others who are on the right who have been you know cajoled while they're in public area and it just seems like the people like maxine waters who justify this call for it who celebrate it now mark cuban of all people coming out in support of the restaurant owner in the sanders story a lot of the blame and i'm listening to those on the left they blame donald trump all donald trump he started this he set the table he and he made all this happened i'm like you guys we had one of our callers third grade exercise i can't get over where we are see square absolutely true the it'd be i think the weakest argument the weakest debate point is you know you still you started as you say third grade that really is stevenson and yes the president has contributed to a course if in our public discourse there's absolutely no doubt about that but this course was way was set for a long time ago before trump and it only gotten worse than this this idea and i i wanna call attention again to maxine waters because you know so much happens these days that we fail sometimes to see you know that's something that's truly different we have a united states congresswoman calling for people to go out and actively harass government officials because of their political beliefs and because they serve the american president and i don't think that has ever ever been something that we've done and yet while it's been condemned i don't think people realize the import of what she's saying yes she's a little bit of a kook but at the same time i don't hear democrats coming out and rebuking her and saying that's too far we've gone too far here and in particular i would call out president obama who was always talking about civility and you know he may have his beef with president trump and the way the president communicates with the american people but this is his party and he can't be if he really believes those things that he said during his presidency he cannot be happy with the tone and tenor they have going on right now and there's an acknowledgement that barack obama is still the de facto leader of the democrat party and the lead he should take you're absolutely correct and there's nothing but silence i and the silence is is telling me you know i i i understand that there are times when you want to provide an opportunity president bush did this where you let your successor manages affairs without interfering but this is something that lebron's obama can talk about with his followers his his people people who voted for him twice and put some guardrails up at this is simply not acceptable that you're going to actively harass people who are in the civil service who are essentially government bureaucrats for ice or the border patrol they're being hunted down on lincoln and facebook and their their addresses are being looked at so people can go in and harassed them nothing nothing really like this has happened before in our contemporary our contemporary history talking with c square and delighted that chris's on board with us before we take our break we learned to the passing of charles krauthammer and the.
