"This is like a very rough overview of what the blood quantum sort of is. I think I'm going to do it behind the bastards episode on just sort of how club tribes were treated aided by the US government something that goes into more detail but by By specifically sort of trying to prove her claim to indigenous blood or indigenous Heritage by taking a blood test warren sort of bought into this system which is very problematic and very heavily debated and so. That's one reason. Why She attracted a sizable amount of criticism But it's also sort of evidence that like again Her belief that she had this blood comes down to Had this heritage comes down to some very Incorrect ideas about native American heritage. That have been passed through my people for a a very long time particularly Oklahoma And her sort of going with a blood test and Jon Lovitz suggesting test in order to to prove her heritage is is you know buying into this long tradition and so it's it's definitely a dumb and lame thing that she and her campaign agreed to do but more to the point it's like there's an incredibly long in layman's Shitty history that is attached to all of this and One of the deep frustrations of this election is that if Elizabeth Warren continues to be a a major force in the election And I like our politics and I hope that she she is a part of it. People like the president will continue to drag. It's just going to continue to be a pain in the ass for the native American Abby Abby and that's when they get closer closer and I and again we didn't talk about this nearly enough when we did her episode but I do think we we mentioned like that. That's a big caveat from me with her is how she handled this situation. I think she made a mistake. I think that she could have done a better job owning up to that in the dressing addressing and if she does get the nomination if she does continue. I think that we would need to see that because there's a lot of communities that had you know are rightfully upset about it and this would be a good opportunity to draw attention to an issue that most people don't under aware of and so there's that I'm also worried about how. Yeah we're talking about things that the president is going to use to weaponize against his opponent. This is one of them so it is absolutely something that we need to keep in. Mind I I I understand in a way you know. There's a are. It sucks our society and the time that she grew up in where she's lost the you know in in yeah. She grew up with this narrative and she grew up with this story. That was false of who she is. I don't you know. And and she benefited from it and she's white you know thinks is And and she and we and that whole culturally have learned and changed. And you'd like to think that if she was a kid now maybe it would be a different story. This isn't making an excuse. I'm just putting it all into perspective active but again like I said that she handled it wrong yen. Like being able to being able to handle those kinds of things and address. Yeah those issues is really important leading up to this year like they're gonNA throw so much stuff and everybody And how that's handled I think is important. They're like we're not going to talk about Biden or anything but you know when he's criticized Hicks out he can't handle it. He grabs people by the collar. is like hey man and like how. The criticism schism is addressed. I think is going to play into quite a bit so in terms of like Just because I don't WanNa be just stating what I think are different native. American can attitudes on this. I actually went to quote A medium article I found from Someone named ally Tatan Titled Warren and the Blood Quantum awesome that kind of goes into at least this one this one indigenous persons perspective on On all this And like how. It's impacted their life life quote Along with criticism of Warren a wave of general distrust and prove it began to spread through the United States placing a negative spotlight on indigenous. Folks this is after her blood test Suddenly the question of what percentage are you held more weight and not in a good way and Katie Cannon describes that one day upon upon being asked how Indian she was the man asking her stated that he was just trying to make sure. You're not another Elizabeth. Warren warrants claim created more pressure than ever for indigenous folks to prove their ancestry to people who were not entitled to such Information Cannon States that warrant answers the dog Whistler's conversation about indigenous Without indigenous input. She makes it seem like the percentage question is something that actually deserves an answer before warrant. It was possible to brush off the presented question to chuckle and chalk it up to a poorly phrased remark from a well-meaning person who just doesn't know any better now. The blood quantum has been solidified as a political maneuver I feel like the percentage question has lost its innocence. Yeah so whether intended or not justifying thing. Yeah I completely agree and it it is. It is absolutely absolutely a factor as to why I might not Volvo her and it also plays into It's interesting that old clip of trump at a in a court about his stuff and he's talking about native Americans claim to land. And he's just like well they don't look like native Americans to me It's like Oh yes. Remember that sort of like playing. Yeah remember when Donald Trump said that in a court of law a a couple of times European himself. A bunch actually is very weird Just sort of like playing into his narrative and being unable not his specifically typically but like playing into it and not being able to really address it and justifying where he's coming from is going to be an issue. Okay okay well. We're getting the wrap it up sign by Sophie. So that's what I'm going to do. I was going to do it anyway. We are going to wrap it up. Like Bernard Sanders unders wrapped up the presidency of John Fitzgerald. So glad you brought that home a rifle so eloquently so poetically fake you you you guys can find us online on twitter and Instagram at worst your pawn please find us online on twitter and Instagram Yoda's plea be mean to us online please be mean to US online No a lot of you guys have been only profoundly abusive to me online.

Go Fuck yourself now only your I mean your life cool boy Howdy I. I hope that all of this joking about Bernie Sanders assassinating former president. has not harmed our chances of interviewing him. Well I me needs answer for it some day so.

"Well also I'm going to speak about this but also because I sort of to your point where you're talking about like you felt sort of betrayed by the reaction to the situation I've also talked to a lot of women who felt betrayed on the other side of it. All right well right so I just wanted to make sure that. I'm sort of communicating that. You're speaking for other exactly. Thank you thank you coding. Framing it like that no problem. No it's true I I. I don't want to pretend like I represent everybody. That's just my perspective and a lot of people that I speak with and granted. That's because you know you. My friends like people that I'm aligned with you communicate with but it's difficult because again burning Elizabeth or two great candidates. It's and I think a lot of people that are still waffling between feel attacked. I still liking her and it becomes difficult for a lot of people. The idea that it's difficult to say like that they're going to capitulate. Or whatever and start supporting Bernie and that's not fair where it's not good You know but I I'm worry. I worry about this dialogue. Alienating people which again is a good transition to talking about The whole Bernie Bernard Bernard brothers phenomenon. Village phenomenon cody does not believe that it exists or well degree. Let me clarify. I'm sorry I think that sexism is a problem in America and the Globe and Also Oh that every candidate has a very passionate slash toxic supporters. And I think that Like I said sexy is a problem album and you can see it. And we'll talk about this a little more later but you can see it from everyone. You can see it in every person's campaign all their supporters I think that the Bernie Bro. Specific thing is blown out of proportion like we've talked about by the media to create a divisive narrative and also because they hate Bernie Sanders specifically and I. I don't disagree with you that the media exacerbates don't but I have such a different experience than that and and I think so many other people do that. It's really hard to accept except that because I feel it very intensely ending no. I know that it's a problem across the board isn't so let me just finish this really quick back. I know that it's a problem across the board. And that's sucks. We need to stop it. Stop talking to each other like this. But specifically there are a lot of people will that feel the Bernie. We don't have to call Bernie Bros. that's offensive name now. That's become pejorative but like there's an aggressive type of of reaction online particularly and it's very alienating. It's very offensive. It's hard for me to accept that it's all well just the media because I see it every day personally and I know that a lot of other people does well. Yeah well. That's I mean again. I'm not speaking for I've I have just seen so many. So many women online who are like Bernie Sanders fans who have just like screengrabs and screengrabs of the exact. Same thing that you're describing Jeram and it's hard to gauge like. Did you see so many. So many takes like yeah. It's a problem in general. But it's worse with Bernie Ernie Sanders. I haven't seen there's no data on that it's all mean how do you. How do you gauge that? It's all just sort of this anecdotal thing and I. I think that having that claim like you'll see especially in the past week and a half as sanders is growing and growing in the polls and popularity thirty five articles about Bernie Brochure. And that's all they have and that's why resisted so much especially the name because it it I I hear like what you're saying stands. Well No. It's not even because it's not. I don't think it's a burning thing I think it's just like there's there's sexism and misogyny and EH. Some of them happened to support him but it's not a him problem. He's like the only candidate him problem but he's the only candidate is who said Ed like don't do it. He's the only one that's about it. It's great I'm not blaming Bernie. I'm talking about us. What can we do to control ourselves as we navigate the worst year? Ever if you do not want that label what can we do not put that on you universal you. What can we do to detract from the potency of the story? How how can we behave better to each other? And it's not just Bernie people sure. How can we all do that? But it's indisputable that this exists because people are are are passionate about their candidate and I love that especially the people from marginalized communities at see him as being a real shot. I get that but there. There's a problem right now with how we're talking about it and yes the media's exacerbating it's let's take the power away from it. Let's stop doing it so I guess that's I mean I don't disagree with anything you said I. I just think that part of the problem is literally the term. And what we're talking about now so it's still being framed like Bernie Bro. Thing in twenty twenty in two thousand eight their articles about Obama Boys. Yeah and like again. It's not and then. There are also like all articles about like Clinton supporters posting in child porn and facebook groups to get them banned and things. It's everywhere it's not this thing and I think part of how we talked to each other better is not eight. It is using this Framework that the media is starting to work that it. It's it's for a lot of us. It feels much more potent within the Bernie Movement and again I understand why and I understand you. You see it differently. I mean if you were supporting Warren maybe you would mm feel more of that heat online and you would have a different perspective but I accept what you're saying. I understand where you're coming from. We have to take a break now. This is bid so fun so far far though it's one of the best days of the best year it's been as fun as when Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz. Father teamed up To give this nation a little shot in the arm just a little little. How do you do.

"Eighty. Okay so welcome back to the worst year ever it is. That was a weird intro. Knows great got your name name their age. What's your name? Oh it's cody Johnston. That's right. It is yes. Thank you and joining us as always is. I'm dying I'm dying. I'm Robert Evans. And I was recovering from the crowd that I caught from all of those governors in Virginia Nia and Then I had to do a live show in San Francisco and just ruined my my voice so I am going to sit back and listen to my friends today I'm sure you'll have some things. Chirpin sound great beautiful. You look beautiful to. He's wrapped up in a nice cozy role. He's got his tissues. I miss you being here no way for sure but at this moment I'm glad you're there. Sorry Yeah I would have gotten you all sick sick and I would have done it on purpose. I know you would have instead of throwing machete throwing Germany be throwing your germs right in our faces. Yep Get your get. Get Your chucking. Germs out So this week we wanted to dig a little bit deeper into into the differences between Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren feel personally. I feel like I've been talking about this a lot lately. It cody and I talked about it a little bit on our other show week and I know what might seem like we're harping on Warren Sanders. A law which I guess we are. The majority of our listeners are probably split between the two of them and Voting starts for some of you guys now so it feels like now is the time to you have this conversation. Yeah that's fair and I think it's also stations good. Discourse is great everybody has a good time during it. Nobody hates it. Nobody gets mad or the I think it's a good. It's a good time. 'cause is a constant reminder of the fact that this is the worst year ever for everybody and I know that in the past few weeks at least for me and leading into the twenty twenty year that we're currently in a it is felt so much twenty sixteen the I don't always has a little bit like twenty. We never really ended and it never really will never will. We're stuck there. Oh yeah yeah absolutely. It was the worst year. And we're reliving Just it's like heightened version of it every every year they do get worse worse but vow is like all right. It's time yeah. It's time for only bad years from now. Yeah yeah this. This conversation definitely feels like we're back in two thousand sixteen in a Lotta ways especially now like recently. It's been like oh by the way we're yeah and I guess part of the reason why I think it's important I'm GonNa spin it positive here. Is that. It's these actually are two of the most progressive presidential presidential candidates that we've ever seen and we're lucky to have them. I think a lot of my frustration around this conversation comes from the fact that a lot of people seem to forget that really quickly were. We're all very quick to paint Warren as a liar and Bernie as an asshole or whatever it is that people WanNa Frame Bernie as and the media exacerbates this and soon everyone. You WanNa just pissed off at each other and yeah so just wanted to say that. Take a moment of appreciation for being fortunate enough to have two great candidates and to even and be having these conversations. We don't have to take a moment. No that was the moment So you're saying that she's not necessarily a neoliberal shell. And he's not necessarily a sexist I anti Semite exactly. I think the truth is somewhere in the middle there. Also I mean this is a scary conversation for me to have I every everytime we talk about it I get a lot of Shit online from some of you guys and okay. We're all worked up about all of it but part of this conversation. I hope hope is to like dial show way to have these conversations in a more productive manner. Well Katie before you get into it. I WANNA try and detract this detract. Perhaps some some some heat from you. By starting this episode with my contention that Bernard Sanders was the real gunman on the Grassy Grassy knoll. Who Shot Dead? JFK God state mental not bad cruises dead. No no Ted Cruz. Dad was the AMMO man though. Okay how That's called bipartisan. Shot right there. Okay Excel. Robbery Bernie should be president And that bring us all together. It's just it's all full circle and like I also want to say I I don't I still don't know who I'm voting for. A lot of people are like. Oh you're just you're only going to ever vote for Warringah. I think you know I feel the need to defend her. Because I think that she gets mischaracterized and I'm Laker but doesn't mean that unnecessarily voting for her so anyway that's my two cents on Batman's because you're yeah. I mean like you were saying like she's not Hillary Clinton their issues shoes I have but like it's not the same and being seeing that it's treated as the same. Yeah it's probably frustrating so okay like I mentioned last week on even more news we talked about the whole. He said she said woman running for president controversy thing and then we had a larger conversation about the toxic climate online surrounding this whole election. Russian and the sexism that we still seem to be struggling with as a party and it was an interesting conversation and I think that a lot of you guys also agreed us. We wanted to keep that going Um But yeah if you if you remember. CNN reported that last year Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders had some sort of a meeting to discuss policies and got into a dispute as to whether or not a woman could win. The Presidency Bernie denied the allegations saying that it was a discussion about how trump would manipulate any weaknesses and again. I don't want to spend too much time talking about this right now. Yeah it just really disappointed me. How many people's initial reaction was to immediately jump to You know she's a liar. And then there was just this huge aggressive and disproportionate online blowback against her like millions of snake emojis. hashtags calling her a lying snake calling for refunds for their donations etcetera And I personally perceive perceive the snake symbol as in this specific context as as being sexist. I know that not everybody agrees with me. Know that you don't cody. We can get into that if you want. But even outside of that to me immediately jumping to the conclusion that she is the liar is is kind of sexist It's a he said she said situation and immediately people assumed that she is the wrong party in here and I think the truth of the matter is that it's something that's much more gray than that. I think that they're probably both right and their perceptions of how that conversation went it's room. There's room for that. Yeah I I mean I think again like we're not going to get super into what we've already talked about but I think that a lot of pushback was about the media and in how they framed it and how they continue to frame it and how her response like during the debate was sort of an embrace of the framing that CNN was going for like the Oh so Bernie. You're saying you didn't say this yet. Didn't say that. So what did you say when he said that and her response was will I disagreed. So that's accepting the narrative they're framing to get that answer and I think and my response to that is like yeah. I mean if that's how she interpreted this conversation if that's how it plays out in her mind part part of me is like why should she be expected to back down from that. She's angry but she didn't if she didn't like the story that it was just a like a leaks story about her her like private conversation. So is the kind of thing where she's like. I'm mad about this and I wanNA talk about it. Well she's being everybody's everybody's talking about it and she's being put on the spot to talk about it and I think that the whole conversation about it has been unfair and she's probably even more angry. I mean that's reading into it. That's my interpretation and because to me I'm just sitting here imagining myself in that conversation. And you're talking to one of your dear friends where you're very much aligned and being told one woman that you can't do something that you really WanNa do. It's humiliating. I would feel humiliated if I was her. And this story came out and in that moment with somebody that she really respects. I bet she was pissed. I don't think she leaked it. I know that she talked about it like a year ago. And the story gets circulated again now all at this point in time I also this on the other show the accusations that she did it on purpose seem really farfetched to me. Maybe somebody pushed it from her her side. We don't see any evidence of that from what I can tell and she is running a campaign that is so staunchly avoided this kind of a conversation that it doesn't make sense to me and it's hurting her. It's hurting her eye. Doesn't it logically. It doesn't make sense to me. I hear your argument that like you feel like she should have squashed it at that moment. Summit yeah maybe maybe maybe but I I don't know I. I don't know that I would've wanted to. I think that would be a little bit fed up. I mean and that's my yeah. The perspective is not squashing it or not like like by accepting their narrative later that day. CNN had a headline like the candidate's this debate on whether or not a woman can be president and like literally nobody was debating that noxious again and even like we've had this conversation about what trump will probably do in the election as we saw in two thousand sixteen two weeks before this big thing about this private conversation between friends broke Joe Biden on camera in front of reporters for people to see said the exact same thing he said in two thousand sixteen. Hillary Clinton had to deal with a lot of sexism. I won't have to deal with that. It's the same thing and nobody cares. Brought so I so it's I'm always go. I'm just I completely agree with you about about that. I think that's bizarre and And blatant moves by the media and all of this and they certainly exactly this but I want us to be able to see it happening and to not immediately jump to attacking the woman and then women and people online that support that the woman in in question like it just feels very ugly to me personally especially in the in the thick of all that I felt like a little bit A little bit in a way. And that's the extreme version of it. You know when I think about people who I want I assume in general were allied with our incapable of taking a step back and and thinking about it from a female perspective. This whole situation just this situation situation if others me and I've said this before also this reaction Kinda makes me think but yeah. A woman can't win in this climate if the people on our side are so quick to jump to these conclusions about her. Yeah I I I think a lot of it might come down to the fact that like we're all having this filtered through the media that exists in this country in the mainstream media that exists in this country tree which is not only bad journalism But also exists to Stoke Division and disagreement in discordance discordance. Because that makes for better television and I think that's a major factor in why this got out of hand quickly as it did and I do think that it may have an the the impact of actually kind of exaggerating how difficult it is for a woman to become president in this country in and I will say it's one of the few things that that makes me happy that the media ecosystem in this nation is collapsing in on itself. Like a dime star. Because it's it's very irresponsible I do think it's it's making it hard for anyone to really know where the people of this country lay on issues like this and also is making you know is creating these sort of conflicts that would I'm not in a responsible media ecosystem has never would have been a story line and I think that's frustrating. It's frustrating as for example the media his obsession with the fact that Bernie Sanders used a man liquor carcano rifle to shoot JFK. When he was driving they won't yes? It's not it's is an Italian made rifle. It's not an American made rifle but if you look at what was available on the civilian market at that time and what was accomplished with working man's option for the shooting the president exactly exactly Bernie Sanders you know is is is is going to pick like the affordable working person's choice even if that means not buying American Erica and I for one support that thank you. Robert is like his campaign slogans. Not Me nobody. Nobody's president I'm president killer. I think that we should transition to talking a little. Bit About Bernie Bro. Since we've been talking about online climate whether or not they exist ah cody and I have slightly different perspectives..
Iowa Democrats treat Warren-Sanders dust-up as ‘Who cares?’
"Warren and Bernie Sanders has now college days hand wringing among activists about how it might change the presidential race but it seems to have landed with a thud especially among Iowa progressives in interviews across the state Democrats described the dispute as somewhere between not a big deal and a contrived quote kerfuffle if you said it would stick with them come caucus day the response or lack of response echoes an undercurrent that has run throughout the race especially in Iowa where many Democrats there say there aren't in the mood for a throw down intraparty
"warren sanders" Discussed on What Next | Daily News and Analysis
"When Washington Post reporter broke the news that Bernie Sanders would be getting an endorsement from three prominent members of the squad. Scores of twitter. Comments comments followed like this supporting the old White Guy Nothing like the hypocrisy of the radical left all this even though these endorsements mints Made Sense. Alexandria Cossio Cortez had campaigned for Bernie back in two thousand sixteen and democratic socialist ideas united. All all of them. Unfortunately I did hear online. Was that the people who I saw really excited about the sky. You know these floor progressive women of color you you know a prominent feminists who is just like how's it possible that these women of Color Progressive Women of color could support the white man. So you then you fall right back into the happenings. Happenings of bad identity politics right because what you're saying is like these women supporting the candidates they did whether it was warren or sanders made a kind of obvious sense but the fact that they were women of color sort of prevented us from seeing that. Yeah I interestingly I think is racist and sexist I think racist and sexist to constrain women of color political choices on the basis of their sex and their race. I the biggest problematic to say that AOL see or she'd have to leave or Omar any of them should have endorsed anyone on the basis of their gender and race. He's more than just that that they will go against the Desa that most of them are members of. I'm just trying to find the logic in in that. Well let's talk about where we are in the election cycle now the breakdowns of WHO's siding with. Who if you look at it just in terms of cold calculating numbers they might look strange to you? My colleague Christina Ricci wrote this article and she broke it down saying you know Elizabeth Warren is garnering the LGBTQ vote and Joe Biden is getting black voters. Mayor P getting older voters Bernie's getting younger voters orders. I wonder if you think breaking things down like that is fair so yeah I think a information is important because information then informs like how you able to make sense of a phenomenon so for example by is leading with the black will but he's leading with moderate cinches black voters who are typically odor Bernie Sanders Sanders is leading with. You know young black voters young lead next voters. I think that information matters because you can't tell a simple story about who's getting the black support art and so those breakdowns you know they just give us information about which sets of candidates in which sets of subgroups what interests are at stake. AAC right so if if the if moderate black or older voters are interested in supporting pirate because they have a fear that no other candidate is going to beat trump. They remember probably more than younger candidates. Right what it was like to live in an America where the racism it was much more on display. Not that it's gone away now not that it's hidden but I think by their impulses choose candidate who they believe is safe who they associated with Obama bomber. The first black president. I think that there's reasons to be sympathetic towards that into not. Just tell a flat story that. Oh He's getting the black support because without knowing what types of black people are supporting him then organizers. Can't go to those people say. Hey I know you are interested in supporting by for these reasons. And I'm sympathetic towards it but here actually is what Abidin presidency is gonNA look like for black people and this is gonNA different from Obama. You know so I think those breakdowns can be helpful. If they're going to then inform organizing or a strategy to then go and try to make a difference. Do I think they're important. The way that I've typically seen them slog around in terms of like attacking different groups. I think that's way way less helpful and I'm way less interested in that. Yeah it sounds like you want to have a policy debate. Not a debate about what color someone is or what gender someone is. I'm not saying that gender and raising class those things don't matter I think what's different is that I am critical of people. People the rolling aware sexist and misogynist around for people who are not supporting Elizabeth Warren who were supported Bernie Sanders and so that's where As sort of dry pause you know if she wins the primary our knock on doors for her to my knuckles. We will call. PEOPLE WILL GET ELIZABETH WARREN TATTOOED OVER MY BELLY THUG life. I will go all out for her. I just think that like I say a suspicious of sexism and massage and he'd been thrown around as live warrant in sanders fundamentally different candidates but Sanders Calling Warren Elitist Warren calling sanders sexist part of what. What makes these charges so electric are that we've heard these arguments? Before back. In Two Thousand Sixteen when Hillary Clinton beat Bernie Sanders but then lost to Donald trump with voters still waiting to cast their ballots this political season. It's hard not to think back on the last election and for Democrats those memories are not good. You can see this anxiety spool out online if you simply look around for the Hashtags Bernier Bust or Never Warren in you've alluded to this a little bit before. But when I look at some of this factionalism were talking about I keep asking my self just wondering like how real is it. Is it really just an online thing. Because I was looking on twitter for instance in in this Hashtag was never Warren Hashtag was trending and the people were picking it up and pushing it out. There were actually a bunch of people saying we gotta shut this Hashtag down. It's not doing anyone any good kind of making the point that we're making here. which is this is in the moment for this but at the same time now that Hashtag is out there and people are responding to it and they're using it and it made me wonder? Is this just a digital thing. That's exactly my point. I think that I so much. Of what how he get temperature or post for what is happening. We're turning to twitter with facebook attorney into social media and I just wish that there were other ways for people to have access to like these conversations to really leafing through the logical consequences like as part of a group or community and not working out their political beasts with candidates like through twitter profiles. Profiled I think for people who are actually doing social movement work and not just participated in like an online spectacle around Senders and warn. You know I take very serious organizers. Committed to the liberation of oppressed people. None of the people I know personally when people essay who were involved in all of these activists organizing groups. I don't take them to be a never Bernie or it never warrant person you know I would say that. They have firmly landed the on their candidate who is our number one and they have vocally they have expressed. They're GONNA do whatever it takes to get their number two elected if they're going to be the candidate who was nominated in a primary nothing. That's what matters. I think there's something else to which is kind of distrust in. I don't know if it's mainstream media or just older. Americans that millennials younger voters whether they're going to show up and really do the work here and like whether we really should be shining the spotlight on the young Progressive Wing. or whether it's really the older people who are going to move the election because we know they're gonna go to their polling places and November. Yeah I think that we've seen before four huge records of young people turn out to vote. I think that's factual I mean. Under President Obama. We saw a huge waves of people of color. La Young people come out and get behind the candidate. They were excited about and inspired by. I think that's very very important to say. Also say back after the twenty sixteen election the people who started organizing and got a lot of momentum in electoral electoral politics in this country. Where young people of color you know? The Movement for black lives lost electoral justice project and they got behind candidates and got people engage in the voter process and we saw them flip elections at every level at every single level. And so I think I'm fair to say that you know our young people going to be able to. It's a show up when young people have shown up. You know they have some. They have organized. They have gone people to the polls they have done drives and raise money and may cause and t shirts. Don't don't parties. They've done all this stuff to get people out to vote right now. A lot of voters trying to figure out which candidate really has their backs. Derek knows how how hard that can be to figure out. But she says the problem with identity. Politics is that they can become a kind of shorthand away to avoid really proving having a candidates worth. And if you need a reason to rethink the way talk about the democratic frontrunners Derek offers a cautionary tale because Donald on trump. He came to office bolstered by his own use of identity politics white identity politics absolutely the absolutely yeah progressive or people on the left. Don't have a monopoly on how to use identity politics. That's why identity politics can be problematic on the left and the centre or the right right because what happens against her trap where you're voting for someone or you excited about supporting policies. That then hurt you you you know so I've been reading about you. Know all these white people in the south who are suffering who are just completely suffering because they either want to reject obamacare or they think that it primarily benefits like starring has emigrants or it benefits black people so they either refuse treatment that literally nearly dying of whiteness their dime because they're choosing to support candidates who re don't want it in their state or they're just simply refusing certain the treatment that are covered by it and so it's it's so unfortunate that they've that would be the candidate or the set of policies that you were support but if you feel ella firm that someone is speaking or using a dog whistle to signal that they have your steak you GonNa Probably Find Comfort in solid garrity in Derrick Cooper.

"Day for the country. The impeachment of president trump now in the hands of the Senate joining us again for a look ahead scene and congressional correspondent Phil Mattingly so tomorrow Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell drinking house impeach managers managers back at noon to the Senate. What happens from there? So you're gonNA see a similar procession Anderson all seven members of the Senate. The House manager team will come back over to the United State Senate when they reach there they will be announced and then they will take to the Senate floor and they will read the articles of impeachment after they conclude that Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. John Roberts will come over around a two PM. He will be sworn in then he will proceed to swear in all one hundred senators they will send a summons to the president of the United States informing him that he's been impeached. Ask Him MM for response and Essentially Anderson. That will be it for the week. It's all teeing up next week. When the real trial will start in earnest presentations potentially witnesses later on in the process but but for now ceremony procedure locking everything in before everything gets started next week? And what about Chief Justice Roberts how big a role he actually play. It's a fascinating question for some. We've all been trying to figure out if you go back to nineteen ninety nine. Kind of the most recent precedent chief justice rehnquist really took a passive role the chief justice could have a very major important substantive substantive role if he wants it but Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell has made clear he expects John Roberts to really mimic what he saw in one thousand nine hundred nine with Chief Justice Rehnquist which is be passive allowed the senators to handle any of the questions. They want but the toughest questions if they come up. Chief Justice Roberts has the ability and the means to rule on those questions however the expectation is at least at this point he will largely defer to the Senate which would mean votes which means a simple majority of fifty one votes would essentially dictate how things move in this trial. uh-huh it's also going to be interesting because cameras are subordinates. Abandon the Supreme Court hearings is not going to be the case during the Senate trial with with Roberts. It's a different ball game. Everything he does is going to be on camera. Except for the deliberations of the senators and keep in mind. His team has been preparing for this. Just like the president's defense team just like the house managers have been. They have been coming over back and forth United States Senate preparing for making sure. He's got office space. Everything's being set up for a very different process than he's used to Anderson all right. Thanks very much get some sleep. News continues one hundred over Chris. Cuomo prime-time Chris..

"Over the Aligarh on national TV. I probably a liar on national. Let's not do it right now. One of the discussion. We'll have that discussion. You call meal you told me. Let's not get by just wanted to hybrid good okay. She walked away without a handshake after intentionally. Trying to deescalate the fight earlier in the debate Bernie is my friend and I am not not here to try to fight with Bernie but Warren wanted to make a point that a woman can win the presidency. It was one of the most memorable lines of the night. Look at the men on on this stage collectively. They have lost ten elections the only people on this stage who have won every single election that they've been in are the women women. They were sparring over a comment. Warren says Sanders made during a private meeting in two thousand eighteen. That a woman couldn't win the White House. Sanders strongly denied ever making such such an assertion. It's a matter of fact I didn't say and I don't WanNa waste a whole lot of time on this because this is what Donald Trump may be some of the media want anybody. Nobody knows me knows that comprehensible than I would think that a woman could be president of the United States in the moment. Warren disagreed the waited more than in an hour later until after the debate to accuse sanders of calling her a liar now we reached out to the campaigns all day long and again tonight once we went went through this audio Anderson and neither campaign wanted to give a comment on this we caught up with Senator Sanders on Capitol Hill. Today he did not want to talk about this at all. One thing is clear both sides is. We're trying to deescalate. This feud on the debate stage but it clearly did not work now is. It's escalated once again. I'm told that they did not speak today. but they we'll be side by side in close proximity Tomorrow at that Senate impeachment trial Anderson and just just six point how the audio how we got this audio oh you. Now why Anderson. We saw play out. We couldn't hear it play out but My colleagues here at CNN spent the day looking through backup audio. It was recorded from the primary audio system. It was a backup a separate system and they found it a late today. We listen to it. We matched it with a video. So that's how we're able able to Reveal this moment so certainly interesting nineteen days before the Iowa caucuses. They are going after some of the same voters here. The progressive voters we will see how this feud continues. It's also a drink. Just because they were they were miked. It was literally the debate. The applause was still going on and they were aware there were miked ached and warn went over and had this exchange with the camera moving right past them and it was so interesting when we watched all of that she had nice. Words was to save for Joe Biden. Shed Nice words say time star Buddha judge and in an instant she saw senator sanders there went directly to him and accused him of calling her a liar on national television television and he was taken aback by. Obviously you can see there. And then he essentially said the same thing accused her of causing liar. So this debate I think will continue between the two of them and we should say that they had a nonaggression pact for more than a year. Perhaps it's surprising at held this long. It clearly is not in effect. Now Anderson Jeff Zeleny. Thanks very much Sony Sound. CNN Political Director David Chalian CNN. Cheap political analysts. Gloria Borger. Gloria I mean clearly. It seemed like on the debate stage. This was kind of maybe put away because neither used the opportunity while they were in the midst of the debate to kind of go back and forth on this but clearly sanders. I had something. She wanted to say to Sanders. Yeah I mean she made a beeline for him at the end of that debate. And you know Anderson you know we were talking about it last night. We were trying to get Tom. Tom Steiner to tell us what they were saying because he was he was hovering over them. And I think when you when you look at this. It really is a pretty significant development in this this campaign the two progressive candidates as Jeff was pointing out. Who had really tried not to get in each other's way during this campaign and suddenly have exploded into this barrage of name calling saying you call me a liar? No you call me a liar and the question I I think we all have is. How are they going to resolve this? Are they going to resolve this I know we've tried to figure out whether they spoke to each other today. And we as Jeff have points out. It seems that they haven't and what a progressives do I mean. These are their standard bearers and suddenly. They're not arguing over the issues but they're arguing over. Who said what to WHO David? There's two things that are so interesting to me about this exchange in the audio on one is that it's so real. It's it's not. There's no I mean this is people who have been in the public eye who had been on the campaign trail a lot. This is two people talking in a very real way with each other. And also I can't say that Senator Warner was not aware that her mic was on and and I mean we'd take up audio all the time from after the debate people on the stage talking do talking to each other shaking hands what they say when they're shaking hands right. I mean she knew the cameras were there and knew the Mikes were still on. Yeah I mean you see that. At the end of every debate you can hear them sometimes greet their spouses. They come up or edgy said greet supporters So clearly she wasn't aiming to have this conversation entirely in private. But you can also as you said it was so real the moment I mean her her. I want to describe her frustration. Her anger her Desire to have make this point To Bernie Sanders was crystal clear. And what I find so interesting Anderson is it is not at all how she wanted to handle it in the debate. So so you're talking talking about Real moment among politicians. Maybe they sound a little different there than we normally hear them on the stump but during that debate is jeff went up. They were trying to deescalate. She wanted She said a Burmese. My friend that's a totally different approach than what she took at the end of this at the end of the debate here and I think that indicates that perhaps she didn't think having this moment even though you're right she knew she was on stage and right after the debate but she did not desire to have this moment front and center in the debate itself which to to me suggests. Maybe she doesn't think it plays well politically for her or for the Progressive Movement. More broadly or both That's why I think she was trying to have an interaction with him. After and clearly this was a private dinner that they had had a year ago or so so whatever was revealed about it by a variety of sources and there were a number of sources on this It came from you. You know either somebody in that room or somebody who the people in that route. The two people in that room talk to about it right and now you have these two candidates involved oft in a he said she said and you know she is clearly furious about it. She shouldn't have been surprised by the way by his response because he had before the debate. It was ludicrous and I think he repeated it again at the at the debate but I you know they. They know where each other stands on this and I don't know how they get around around it because clearly. They have different views of what occurred and she was so angry. Really angry that she's a professional politician. She knows that she was miked. She knows she was on camera and yet she was so mad that she could not really restrain herself from going right up to Bernie Sanders and saying you called me a liar or didn't care if out there or ord didn't care I mean I think that's a that's another possibility but it's interesting Gloria though that she didn't say to Bernie Sanders you lied. Nope dope she said you call me a lot more. I don't we don't WanNA play too much but I did hear once make me a liar on national TV. I think you told me a liar on national. Let's do it right now. One of the discussion. We'll have that discussion. You call allege told me get by just want to say hybrid good. It's.

"It is really a situation where the president's lawyers deserve to pull in whoever they feel contributes to their case and the house managers presenting their case need to be able to pull in and have a subpoena for the witnesses and and for the documents. That's what a trial is full fairness to present the case on both sides if Republican lawyers wanted to pull in one hundred Biden or or Vice President Biden. You would support my belief. Is that the jurors the hundred of us should not be determining who is relevant to the case and quite frankly I think that if one either side tries to turn this into a circus pulling people who are clearly not relevant or continuing the personalization of persecution of a political opponent. It would do great great harm to that side so I would say that in this case the right of the defense to choose who they think is relevant and present that information. It's something no one else should be able to interfere with. Re Republicans are united in their opposition to include any new evidence. Do Democrats really have any leverage though to force this issue the leverage is is fifty one votes leverage. Is People doing their responsibility. Under the constitutional framework of checks and balance the leverage is the oath. We're going to take the start of the trial l.. Where we pledged to do impartial justice their leverage is that the American people understand that impartial justice in visions of full access access to witnesses and documents lack of witnesses and documents? That's a cover-up impartial justice. which is something that that all the senators are going to be swearing to? Is that something. I mean senators who've come forward and said you know I'M I. This is not you know. We're not going to find the president guilty realty. I can swear to that oath. Well I think they're going to have to search their heart and ask if they're able to set aside their preconceptions. All of us all hundred of us and if we are unable to do that if we're unable to in good faith say we'll set aside our preconceptions. Look at the exact language of the house articles of impeachment. The exact evidence and how it fits Then we should recuse ourself Because it would be really a deep violation of any form of integrity to go forward forward and swear that you can do impartial justice when you're unable to do it. The the Republicans have been criticized in the house. Impeachment hearings rushed saying Democrats are more interested in getting it done fast fast and they were in conducting a thorough investigation that they really wanted to do a thorough investigation. They would have gone through the court process in order to get the testimony that they wanted that they couldn't There is no evidence that that has come to light the fact that new evidence is still coming to light. Does that prove their argument correct. Well recognized that. A lot of this information was solicited in the house examination and it was blocked in all kinds of various ways. People who refuse to testify and in this case Information that they subpoenaed needed but they weren't able to get until now but again it goes back to the fact that the house setting is a different setting. Is there substantial information relevant to what what would be the at an indictment and in a trial. It's full examination of of of the facts with everything brought to bear my colleagues. My Republican colleagues know this. They know that the president would have his legal team would have tied up the subpoenas for probably a year taking it through the next election and that therefore we could not have executed accused our responsibility under the constitution if the house waited until the courts could process each and every of the cases in which they were seeking documents and witnesses so the House I had asked themselves a key. Question is what we have so strong that this merits full trial and the house concluded noted that it was and now we have a different set of responsibilities in the Senate. Senator Merkley appreciate your time. Thank you very much with just ahead. How the trial might be received and what happens to Republicans gins if they pull the plug and then more evidence comes to light coming up next though right after the break exclusive the lyrics to what looked like like anything but a love song?

Kamala Harris drops out of presidential race
"Breaking News in two thousand twenty lead after a promising start with huge crowds and impressive fundraising numbers California Democratic Senator Kamala Harris this afternoon soon announced she is dropping out of the race for presidency and ends. Jeff Ellen joins me now in Senator Harris blame her decision squarely on on money. That was her official reason. And that is the reason. Of course she was getting out of the race she simply did not have the money to go forward and pay the staffers of course. Why wasn't she raising money? That is essential question here. She found herself without a particular home. She wasn't a progressive SH- wasn't necessarily a moderate shed a couple of feet in both camps. She started that way. Back in January anywhere when you asked her if she was for Medicare for all she vacillated a bit and now it's sort of a sign of what was to come for her campaign but she address her supporters this afternoon in a video and and this is why. She said she couldn't go forward. I've taken stock and I've looked at this from every angle and over the last few days I have come to one one of the hardest decisions of my life. So here's the deal guys. My campaign for President simply does not have the financial resources to continue and the financial resources. We need to continue so the reality here there is. She saw the writing on the wall. She actually was going to be on the debate. Stage in two weeks in California. Yeah so many of her supporters were hoping that she would stay in until that point trying to make one last chance to check. I am told she was thinking about her own future. By dropping out now she will will not be on the California ballot that means. She won't lose miserably. There she of course is almost certainly to run for reelection. Twenty twenty two there as senator so by dropping out now that happens she also preserves her political future here. Long after the primary settled she certainly will be in the running to be a running mate. We don't know how hi this is going to go but by getting out. Now she's sort of leaves with our dignity intact but so many people were surprised by the fact that she was not able to catch on a lot of reasons for that. Some of which we've talked about and the democratic debate in this month as of right now the only candidates that have that have made the stage now now that Harris's out our our white despite this incredibly diverse field of candidates. Let me just ask you. How do you think benefits the most from this? Let's say in Iowa the first state the caucus state Who Will Benefit from from her dropping out? I mean I think at this point when you look at the people in the race Amy Klobuchar. I'm keeping my eye on there in Iowa. She's coming on much stronger particularly after the last couple of debates really raising questions on the reality of some of these plans so look for her to assume some of Senator Harris's support also Cory Booker Booker. He needs to make his last stand there. He has a strong organization there so he can consolidate any of his support will see but also someone when probably not in the Warren Sanders camp more likely in the other camp here so all of her people are up for grabs yeah. Booker has not made the December debate. At least as Jeff Zeleny thanks so much
Michael Bloomberg qualifies for Democratic primary ballot in Alabama
"Well folks if you thought. The Democratic primary field wasn't crowded enough billionaire businessman. Michael Bloomberg is on the case at. They're saying in March that he wouldn't run for president. The former New York York City mayor is apparently backtracking and preparing a run for twenty twenty bid according to a spokesman Bloomberg is expected to file the necessary paperwork to get on the Democratic primary ballot in in Alabama by the Friday deadline. Kate is not able to join us but we do have John Avalon with us by phone. John what's your first thought Ari. Well we're both New Yorkers. We know that Mike Bloomberg is flirted with running with the presidency. Probably a half dozen times over the past decade. This had been rumored There was a sense that he was dissatisfied with his decision. Not to get in. He saw Tom Star. Get on the ballot. Make the debate stage and I think it dovetails tails with something that you and I have discussed Kate. which is there may be a slot open for the Biden backup Centrist candidate who can win a general If Biden were to say there has been no major catastrophic flame out for Biden but other centrist candidates have really failed to rise. And so you see that top tier You know looking like Biden Warren Zander's And so a lot of national DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN CONCERNED WAR Warren Sanders could lose to donald trump and Buddha judges just an unknown quantity. This is really Bloomberg leaving an option open By making sure he's on the ballot in the first State Alabama. This is not an officially getting in yet. It's keeping options open. And he's got fifty billion dollars to do that with so you shouldn't count them out no matter what your politics yeah. I think that's right. You know he hasn't gotten the race yet. He's merely just filing again in Alabama. Obviously the New Hampshire. I'm sure that lines coming up soon. And that I think will be a truer test right eventually. You either have to you know what or get off the pot and right now he's on that pot But we'll see whether or not he actually stays on it or gets off but I look I. I think there's a real question. I have John which is how much of this Bloomberg thing. And obviously there's there's been a media spike of interest with this. How much of this is merely the New York City media knowing Michael Bloomberg? He was the mayor here obviously for over a decade. How much is this? Just him being being in the back yard and therefore thinking highly of him versus sort of what the actual polls in the data says. I we know that. The Democratic Party is evenly evenly SPLIT BETWEEN MODERATES FLASH CONSERVATIVES AND LIBERALS LUSH very liberal Michael Bloomberg Certainly the centrist record in the context of New York City politics But the left's anger it even the notion he might get in a little odd given the fact that he's been the biggest funder for a lot of liberal causes particularly gun reform and climate change. I think the big question is Joe Biden who obviously occupies the lane. He would run in Has It demonstrated ability today to win over African Americans and working class voters. Mike Bloomberg's ability to do that is untested unknown and probably probably shouldn't be assumed to be an easy path. He is a billionaire from New York City then again so is Donald Trump and he successfully run as a conservative populist but the sheer volume of money if Mike Bloomberg gets in he and his team say they're going to spend a billion To to to be competitive in a primary in anything anything beyond that in a general so I don't think you can you can count them out And for those centrist and moderate and conservative Democrats. He'd be an appealing candidate. Can You bring the other broader coalition totally unknown. It's going to be a question of him. His record symptomless charismatic. You know ground Game politician amount of money can achieve almost anything
John Delaney takes aim at Warren, Sanders
"As another fund raising quarter comes to an end a number of democratic presidential hopefuls continue to work hard to try and gain traction among potential Democrat voters former Maryland congressman and presidential candidate John Delaney has had difficulty connecting with voters as one of the few moderates in the race who refuses to agree with some of the more left wing elements of the party speaking on bulls and bears on the fox business network the former congressman believes the road to the White House for Democrats is a more moderate approach I think what will happen as we get closer to Iowa New Hampshire I think the more moderates in the Democratic Party are gonna step forward because the problem with some of the things of Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren a running on is not even half of the Democrats in the country support some of these things forget about the whole country but literally I think some of these things if they got votes in the Congress not even half the Democrats would vote for a lot of this

"For free at Apple podcasts breaking breaking news tonight tied to those hush money payments from the trump organization to women who say they both had affairs with Donald Trump before he became president affairs. He'd course Denies Federal Prosecutors earlier. This year closed their investigation after successfully prosecuting trump's former attorney Michael Cohen who's now serving a three-year prison sentence but the Newer County District Attorney's office has been proceeding now for some time. I'm familiar with the probe tonight. There's new information on that CNN's canal joins us. So what did you learn about this investigation. Now Well Anderson sources. Tell us that prosecutors with the Manhattan District Attorney's Office. That's led by Sivan's have traveled to OTAS FILL NEW YORK. Michael Cohen is serving that three year prison sentence for violating federal law relating to campaign finance violations that have to do with those hush money payments to women so the prosecutors traveled there. We're learning earlier last month soon. After they launched this investigation into the trump organization and what the state authorities are trying to figure out is whether the trump organization had violated any state eight law as it relates to those hush money payments and one question sources tell us that investigators are focusing on is whether the trump organization had falsified business records that would be a state crime and that would the question there is whether they had described how they were reimbursing Michael Cohen for paying stormy Daniels at one hundred thirty thousand dollar payments incorrectly on its books so that's a question that the state investigators are now focusing on Anderson. How does the investigation different from from the federal one that was closed. That's right so the federal prosecutors closed their investigation in July that very quickly soon after that the state prosecutor's investigation they're looking for violations of state law and not the federal federal law and they're focusing on the trump organization itself now. This investigation is though in its early stages it launched soon after the Federal Prosecutors Closer Casey subpoenaed the trump organization an American media the publisher of the national enquirer which was involved in the payment to Karen McDougal another one of those women and now they've interviewed Michael Cohen. This is still pretty early stages and we do expect to have them interview other people who might have some information about this Anderson. There's the trump organization responded to yes so we did hear from one of the lawyers for the trump organization mark McKay easy. He gave us a statement saying that when you lie down with dogs you get up with fleas an apparent reference to the credibility of Michael Cohen and how useful he may be to the prosecutors but Michael Cohen worked for Donald Trump for many years so was Donald Trump flea infected. That's that's the question I'm not sure. There's the greatest analogy for somebody. You've employed for a long period of time care scale. Thank you very much perspective now from Elliot Williams who served as deputy assistant listener turning general under President Obama. He's a CNN legal. Anna's also with us Jeffrey Toobin CNN's chief legal analyst is this. I mean does this mean. The fact that the Southern District New York just has handed over to Cyrus Vance's office. Does that mean it's Kinda done and they're just kind of following up color me skeptical that anything big is. GonNa come from this. There's a reason why most white collar crime in this country is invested by federal authorities rather than state. They have better laws for investing white collar crime more resources more experience and here is the the trump organization is apparently the the only target here and you know. You can't put an organization in prison. You can find it. I don't if people who are still holding out hope that there is going to be some. I'm great or legal accountability for the hush money payments. I wouldn't get your hopes up because I just don't think there's that much likely to come out of. La Do you agree with that. Ah Yeah I think that's right because look at the kinds of offenses that the federal government was and again. Let's take a step back and remember. There's there's a federal system and a state system. The federal system is the campaign campaign finance laws that were being investigated. These are state crimes of essentially bookkeeping so look Michael Cohen even he wouldn't be facing a serious charge or serious time in the state while here and frankly just as Jeffrey had said if someone is charged. Would it be the organization and you're just they're just going to get a fine right so it's not you're not no one's going to go away for a very very long time. That's what we're seeing is the number of jurisdictions state and federal federal that are looking into the president's conduct and you have the state. Da here looking into this you have the State Attorney General's office looking into tax violations at the trump foundation dacian and then of course any other federal investigators that might be looking at the matter so a lot of illegality and corruption investigations seem to follow the president but nothing seems seems to have stock and in fairness to Manhattan. DA's office DECI answers office they have launched a new case against Paul Manafort in in under state law author various fraudulent activities allegedly and the idea always will be to try to get manafort to say something to flip in a way he he never did successfully in the federal system but again it's unlikely to lead to sort of know is this. I mean the the the trump organization attorney who had previously said that this is a political hit job. Is I mean the if if there's anything that's going to come out of it if if you know it's against the trump organization. Is it just politics. It's it's premature to dismiss this investigation altogether. It is no coincidence however that that the democratic. Da of Manhattan County the Democratic Attorney General of the State of New York are all very hot to trot in this investigation that is the there is no question there's a political dimension to that but if they find something they find something and and you know we'll see if they do elliot the President has no immunity from state charges not just after he leaves office but even while he's in office right right yes we saw through the special counsel investigation so much national nationwide discussion over who can charge the president or not the states can charge the president even now now look good luck. Getting process served on the president of the United States are getting him to sit for an interview. You know another point on this hit job point at the end of the day. Let's not forget that they're still covering up misconduct now on the one hand. It might have been hush money payments. It's on the other hand. you know in this instance here. It's falsifying business records. It still conduct that we don't want anyone engaging and we shouldn't be quick to desensitize ourselves. It's to the fact that people are trying to cover their tracks and trying to cover up illegality now that said it doesn't carry huge criminal penalties and we'll just have to see how it plays out. I mean they they were just covering up a noah map with their sharpie as a lot of covering surprised that like there might be other things going on and you know. I'm old enough to remember the mullahs report and the Mullahs report talks about time after time when the there is at least the suggestion and strong evidence of obstruction of justice in a wide variety of ways now. We know that he cannot be prosecuted. They're under a while. He is president under department and we know that the more report he was essentially actually saved by his White House counsel who refused to follow through on your Act White House counsel who actually knew something about the law. Go who know go figure why hire somebody who actually Do you think that authorities might try to interview the president while he's still in office. I think it'd be incredibly challenging to do so in that would lead need to look look. This is exactly what came up in the context of the Miller education months and months and months and months of negotiation over the terms of nature of the present the difference is he could actually be you charged so if they have a reason to interview him. They certainly can the problem. Is that your star witness here. You're central here. Michael Cohen to be perfectly frank has serious credibility ability issues. He's a convicted felon serving a federal sentence unless they have another way to corroborate any information he provides can be challenging to get to the president. I don't think is going to be a lengthy negotiation for the president to give an interview to the Manhattan. Da The phone will be hung up very quickly and that'll be the end of that data ask Jeffrey Toobin Ellie Williams. Thanks very much next the White House moves to ban flavored ease.

He supposedly working on a gun deal. What does he think about the Supreme Court case coop that changes the asylum laws laws in this country the obviously I mean the people watching will say well.

"As we reported the top programme the trump administration maybe looking at naming. Mike pompeo is the a new national security adviser but also keeping him as secretary of state that Richard Nixon did with Henry Kissinger this is the president left little doubt today that he would be the one directing America's foreign policy from now on a day after he fired his National Security Adviser John Bolton today. The president told reporters that Bolton had quote made some very big mistakes John's known as a tough guy. He's so tough he got us into Iraq. That's tough but he's somebody that I actually we had a very good relationship with but he wasn't getting along with people in the administration that I consider very important and I hope we we've left left in good stead but maybe we have maybe we haven't. I have to run the country the way we're running the country. We're doing very well respected all over the world again. respected respected like we haven't been respected in many many years. Obviously some people might differ with that characterization. Samantha power was a key member of President Obama's national security team team shells disturbance the US ambassador to the United Nations the author of a new book the education of an idealist. I spoke to her just before airtime. What what do you make first of all about John Bolton's exit and the president's response to it or the way it happened well. We don't know what happened because we don't know who to believe and that's the recurring pattern in metro problem which i WanNa talk to you about also yeah and it's a recurring theme in trump's approach national security to domestic policy to politics to everything I think in Bolton you had somebody usefully who had a lot of foreign policy experience and you were both investors indeed and even just to even even though he had a very different approach to the UN and was extremely skeptical of multilateral cooperation and of institutions like that at least he had the experience of working with other countries stories occasionally on on different issues and because he had foreign policy experience he felt comfortable standing up to the president and disagreeing so that's a good thing and it will be missed because it does seem like the longer. The trump is in office. He is surrounding himself more and more by kind of Mirror Mirror on the wall. WHO's the handsome and wisest of the wall was me wh- what a what a coincidence you know. Why don't you stay in your job so there's that but then Bolton also had very belligerent instincts that are not really in line. I I think with where the American people are on the left or the right. You surprised that he was hired in the first place I mean other than a position on Fox News which is likely where the president saw the most host of him given his viewing habits just in terms of policy and I'm not sure you could argue that. The president is very firm on any one particular policy but he's he certainly seems to be from the beginning at odds with bolt. I agree with that but I think his first port of call is is somebody flattering hiring of me and it's no secret that John Bolton's positions on Fox News actually departed I think from the John Bolton I was familiar with from his writings and from his own policy positions when he was in prior administration positions but trump's him saying nice things about trump foreign policy and saw that he had some number of years logged in various administrations and said come on and then when he got in Bolton was less inclined to cozy up to dictators like Kim Jong on and and the Taliban and trump really believes that the big bang spectacle of sitting down with bad guys somehow somehow reflects well on him even if the Legwork hasn't been done and so that was a source of tension there again Bolton was trying to impose some discipline on a process that is often often foreign policy by tweet but again Bolton carried with him also a huge amount of baggage especially as it related to you know again being very inclined go with military force and bit blind to consequences so when the President says we'll look I'm making the decisions on bring the Taliban here to negotiate a deal. You know ooh I I've. I just got this letter from Kim Jong Un. Let's have some it the we are not mistaken in the the surprise that there there is not a lot of preparation done before some of these events. I mean since the creation of the National Security Council and the national security apparatus we have never or had an administration whether you agreed or disagreed with their various policies that have gone down the past with no process with you. Don't believe there's reprisals Ross from from everything I understand to be happening behind the White House walls. There's no process. The process is trump watches. Fox News News sure he gets his briefings. Orly because he's not a big reader. People have an idea greeter alone is just terrifying that you're using it in conjunction with President on his but but he's very impetuous and latest is often the greatest so he's very susceptible to who he's just talked with. He has as time has gone on gotten rid of a lot of the guardrails around him. One of the things you right you say that on several occasions President Obama reprimanded me for comments. He thought dogmatic doc matic or sanctimonious. We've already books amount that he snapped in one situation room meeting. I looked down chastened but fifteen minutes later said let's get back to the point. Sam made earlier. That's sir. What is that like. I mean I I've had one or two experiences. Were prisoner. Obama seemed annoyed at a question I asked it's not a pleasant is in feeling any time. A president gets annoyed at you but we've all read your book Samantha. That's pretty cutting yeah. Does it then make you less likely to the next time around jumping in statements prison. I think so give me my pursuit great. It's a great insight into human behavior in a group behavior in the premise of your question. I mean on one level. Yes and I think that's why President Obama as you read in the passage in that moment comes back. ACTA me for two reasons by accident. No I mean I think it's also he knows that ninety percent of my day is going to be spent with other if I'm not negotiating with people internationally with my colleagues in the cabinet and if he's pulled the rug out from under me when I'm trying to stand up to somebody let's say on whether we should resume military assistance stints to an abusive unit in some country that we're in coalition with in fighting terrorists when I try to make that case if the rogue has just been pulled out for me you know by the President I'm not going to be as effective and and there was in the White House will send have the president's ear yeah exactly so even though he might get impatient impatient with me understandably sometimes and you know because I was in New York here at the U N sometimes I was coming video screen and to be out of the room also trying to parachute in and make you recommend describe the perspective that one has from dealing with all the countries of the world on a given day but I could go on too long and I could see it you know the kind of he's the president is the busiest man in the world and so that's part of the education the idealist the prison has weakened confidence in establishments advertisements in in the the pillars of democracy in government functions the FBI the courts the State Department. Oh you name it. General Michael Hayden on on this program. We often talk about what he calls. The thin veneer of civilization that we think civilization is sort of deeply rooted and a and sort of the the life that we know is deeply rooted in American and I'm not able to change he points to Sarajevo which extraordinary work in and have written about as a multicultural city which you know there were the Olympics in one thousand nine hundred forty on those same hills servers were lobbing shells and mortars in snipers were were shooting civilians years later so it it is things can change very quickly. The lights go out. The electricity goes and people get very different very fast. Do you worry about in the United States or do you believe this too shall pass regardless of how long this administration is in that that the the the institutions are strong enough. Well I think right now we've seen our institutions bent contorted but they haven't and broken and we had a midterm election that allowed one form of accountability in terms of house accountability to be put back in place that didn't exist for the first two years there's and that at least puts the brakes on what can be congressionally blessed but you know eight years is very different from four years the the hemorrhaging of expertise he's from our scientific agencies the hemorrhaging of linguistic and regional expertise from our diplomatic corps at just the time we see conflict spreading reading and rising and again. Americans living out in the world and being at stake in that world we can't afford from my standpoint certainly eight years of of this but also I think it's incumbent on the individuals who are not necessarily of my political persuasion or wouldn't have been and part of the Obama Administration but people who better who have sort of made a devil's bargain with this president they see the judge is going through who have have the views they wanna see occupying the bench and they said well. Maybe I'll be quiet about the line or maybe I'll be quiet about the separation operation of children from their parents that leads to the orphanage of children. Maybe I'll be quiet about things I never five years ago could have imagined being quiet on and maybe I'll be quite even on the legitimation of the Taliban and Kim Jong UN things that if President Obama even after four years of painstaking preparation if President Obama ahead done I would have a press conference has it of exploded and to me. That's the most disappointing disarmed. Is this the the the the the the double standard and the devil's bargain and that's where things get very dangerous because we have a divided country and it yet we whether on the right of the left I have two kids. You know a lot of parents out there a very different political persuasions all teaching our kids. Tell the truth truth cooperate. Don't be cruel above all whatever you don't be cruel. Don't bully and yet when those things are being done. You know in the highest assed office in the land. Suddenly we have a different standard for president than we would children that we're trying to raise. Smith our thank you so much. Thank you Anderson. Thank.

"Welcome back to politics are new a new report in propublica details the very close connections between the Republican National Committee and the trump campaign in one detail in this profile of Brad Apart scale the trump campaign manager could be incredibly critical for Republicans facing reelection in twenty twenty propublica reporting that the is not going to provide data about about how voters in certain congressional districts in states view president trump data that used to be widely distributed but isn't now over concerns by the trump campaign that those candidates. Let's could start to distance themselves from president trump this afternoon the RNC confirmed to CNN the PROPUBLICA report that they don't share that information calling it proprietary president trump's campaign manager. Briscoe called the PROPUBLICA report stupid today on a call with reporters but let's talk about we don't have to the part that has to do with Brad that he I think he found a stupid or at least a unfortunate. It is interesting. Mary Catherine that they are not going to let let's say your congressman and the running in district. That's marginal right and you. WanNa know is trump popular in my district or not that they're not going to let you know yeah so there's a couple issues in the star one ethical where it's like. It's sort of like oh well. This is old swamp meet the new swamp a different kind of person that was brought in very unconventional for unconventional campaign to efficacy lucassie. He was very effective and like that's the thing that I one of the things I took away from this he does get a lot of credit that he's a digital genius but he did the thing he had had to do is marry the RMC to this slapdash trump operation and did a thing that nobody thought could be done so he deserves some money and some credit for that but then you get to this which is the opposite. They're not going to be married this time so you will not have the victories in a place like Ohio where the senator outperformed the president because he won't have the information information that he should have to know how he position himself for how he should appeal to voters so now you have the question of repetition. Can he do this again. Which I think is a open question and we'll he he transferred to other. Gop candidate from the answer seems to be according to this new. What's better for the Republican Party to share that information. This is basic political strategy. If you WANNA win elections you need to know the facts so if you WanNa win over the house you want to know if trump is popular in a congressional district strip. It doesn't mean that the Republican candidates to blast trump criticized trump. It's good to have that information at the end is going to help trump so for the life of me I just I don't understand it then for trump right. It's it's an interesting insight into this part of the way they tried you bring taking control over. Republicans and why we all we keep talking about Republicans looking being afraid of the trump faith also if you don't have the data. You don't know what you're up again but I mean it's just common sense. Then we saw Democrats do this. When Obama was running for what was on the ticket two thousand twelve some Democrats to distance themselves from Barack Obama say they disagreed with him criticize him not appear with him not invite him and the Obama I assume will you tell me didn't care because he wanted to keep them in the house to win and lateral thinking in order to win. You have to destroy your own party and so it's a it's a callback to the first story right in order to placate trump. The truth is in truth and everything will be in service of trump truth facts the weather maps apps and even the Republican Party so as long as we have you here.

That could really endanger danger. People's lives and I would also add as we know from Jim. Shudo earlier this week. There's some question about the president's ability to determine when he shouldn't say certain things things right with some of the meetings that he's had with the Russian so maybe he was not supposed to say that he was meeting with the Iranians.

CNN has confirmed the New York Times story that President Trump's chief of staff mick bovine got involved in handling the fallout from president trump's inaccurate and outdated tweet about Hurricane Doreen about to hit Alabama harder than anticipated a White House official telling CNN that Mulvaney spoke with Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross Ross subsequently threatened to fire officials at Noah if the agency did not disavow National Weather Service forecasters who contradicted the president's claim according to The New York Times this afternoon. The president denied knowing anything about the story. Ross deny threaten to fire anyone at Noah joining me now is democratic. Democratic Senator Maisy Hirono of Hawaii senator your reaction to President Trump's comments today and the news. The White House was directly involved once again. How can you trust anything that comes out of this White House because you have a president who lies every single day and on something like this. This is serious business when you're predicting that a state state might get hit by a very big hurricane. This is not any time to be fooling around and so it could have ended if the president said whoops and they move on but no they create this entire drama around China make the president look good and this is par for the course for this administration and you have have the commerce secretary of calling the head of no from Greece no less telling him you better fix this and they'll which led to their statement and now all the chief scientist said Noah very much disagrees with this basically not relying on science and facts as to where hurricane is going to hit and he wants to to do his own investigation so the chaos continues and by the way Mulvaney who I think is at the heart of a lot of this aside from mommy is very much oriented towards protecting the president being a yes person to the president at at every turn but Mulvaney is the same guy who when when the US Department of Agriculture for example began to move some of their researchers scientists to the West Coast where they don't WanNa be said this is a really good way to get get some of them to retire which is a good thing notice not a good thing in the scientists and the people who are actually doing the fundamental work of these departments Mr Retired because of this kind of shenanigans so now that's what I call them all. Vini to resign and I renew my call him through sewing center. You're part of a group of Democratic senators. demanding answers from the Department of Commerce's Inspector General about whether Secretary Ross pressured toback the president. What specifically do you want the inspector general to do and uncover. I want the Inspector General to tell us whether or not there was undue political influence. There are these kinds of actions based on a political political politically driven as opposed to Something does fact base. I I would say that. The conclusion is pretty clear but when you start threatening people with being fired if they don't do what Ross lots then you you create a situation where we need to get to the bottom of it and that's why let this letter signed by a number of my colleagues in the Senate. Noah's acting chief scientist Greg Maclean said that he's is investigating why knows leadership backed trump's false claims against what the scientists were saying and he's looking at whether Noah's scientific integrity was violated. Have you spoken to Mr McLean at all no but I certainly share his concern and so that's what I would like inspector general to determine whether or not the this is this kind of response to what the president did is unwarranted and in fact it compromises no odd to a very great extended compromises the weather service and the science that should be behind their information that they impart to the public. You Know Hawaii has been hit by hurricanes before we had a huge one in one thousand nine hundred to Hurricane Niki. We're still recovering from some of that so this is serious business when you start changing maps to indicate that a hurricane's done a hit a estate all right Democratic senator as Geraldo of Hawaiian.

CNN that's Marley spoon dot com slash C. N. N. and we're back with breaking news a brand new CNN national poll on support for the two thousand twenty Democratic presidential candidates. It's on the eve of the third debate of the primary season in Houston Texas tomorrow among potential Democratic voters Joe Biden remains in the lead in this poll at twenty four percent and followed by a virtual tie between Senator Elizabeth Warren and eighteen percent and senator Bernie sanders with seventeen percent the those three of the only three candidates with double digit support. Only three others have five percents aboard more Senator Comma Harris with eight percent mayor Pete Buddha judge at six percent and former Congressman Federal Roy at five the margin of error is four point three percentage points compared to CNN's poll in August Biden is down a little bit while everyone else is up a little bit CNN Political Director David joins me now and David where there are the candidates the leading candidates getting their support from who are there voters will jake that Biden lead is being powered in large part if not entirely by African American voters take a look at how African American split with this field again among democratic African American voters biting gets forty two percent. UC Sanders at twelve twelve worn at ten. I mean he's got thirty point lead with these voters on escort. Take a look at Hispanic voters it sanders who comes out numerically ahead here twenty four for Biden it eighteen a work at fourteen and you see Warren harassed rounding out the top five among Hispanics and if you look at White Voters Among Democrats here Warren Warren imbibing there basically splitting twenty three percent for warrant twenty one percent for by then sanders at fifteen so those African American voters are critical for Joe Biden. We've seen senior. Democratic voters saying polls that electability is more important to them than finding a candidate. They agree with on most issues What does this poll show about. Who they think is most electable yet yeah that is a majority position for Democrats Jake Fifty five percent? If you look here of Democrats say the strong chance of beating Donald Trump is what they're looking for in a candidate just thirty nine percent say they're looking for somebody who shares their position on the issues among that fifty five percent the ones who want a trump defeat her if you will take a look at this Elizabeth Warren on the rise last month among this group she fifteen now. She's all the way up twenty one you see the Joe. Biden is on the decline here and Bernie Sanders a little bit on the line. This is really important. Elizabeth Warren making some strides Jake on the electability score and one other note in this poll about I want to show you. You is about voter enthusiasm. Look at this forty five percent of Democrats now. Tell us they are extremely enthusiastic about voting in this election and compare that to the four most recent presidential elections at this cycle. It's not even close Jake and I will just note if you take that group the extremely enthusiastic mastic that forty five percent they split about evenly between the parties actually a slight little edge for Republicans there so it doesn't matter what side of the aisle you're on voters are charged up for this presidential election. Jake so looking at this poll. Where is the state of the race right now. Yeah I mean I think that Joe Biden's coalition is proving to be quite durable. So far African American voters people who identify as moderate or conservative Democrats older voters. These are sizable chunks. They are critical to Joe Biden success right now and they've proved durable thus far so we've seen now Elizabeth Warren make strides on -bility. I think the thing to look for next his does Elizabeth Warren or other candidates make some strides into those biden groups African Americans older voters and those moderate conservative Democrats interesting David Chen. Thanks so much. Let's chew over all this around the table and if you're advising Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren Right now. What would you tell them. Give this. I would tell them you gotta keep making the argument that you are the person who can beat trump because clearly that is the most important thing that Democratic voters this next several months this over across this fall and the various debates. This is your best opportunity opportunity in front of the national audience to make your case why you're the One and certainly for Warren. It's really interesting to see that movement because as much as I hate to say ah for women candidates.

"Brand new. CNN Twenty twenty polls debuted viewing in minutes on the lead showing a tightening race for the Democratic presidential nomination and the top issue. Maybe just who is best show president trump the door assault on the truth again. CNN now learning that the White House played a direct role in leaning on forecasters to cover for the president's ally hi about Hurricane Dorian in Alabama as the Hiller killer hurricane threatened other parts of the US plus with linked to deaths and a pattern of targeting children and each cigarettes under fire today the trump White House now looking for a partial ban after vaping related illnesses claiming another life. Welcome to the lead. I'm jake tapper we start with the politics lead the Washington Post reporting this afternoon that it was in fact president trump trump who instructed his staff to order the National Oceanic and atmospheric administration or Noah to uncontradicted the president's false forecast two Sundays ago that Hurricane Doreen was about to hit Alabama much harder than anticipated information from the president that was inaccurate and outdated and quickly corrected by the National Weather Service. The New York Times has reported that after talking to the acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross whose department oversees is Noah threatened. Noah leaders with firings if they did not fix the contradiction now president trump is always had a tenuous relationship chip with facts and truth. Sometimes these are fringe even racist beliefs such as his campaign to suggest the first African American president was born in Africa or his ridiculous claim that he saw on TV thousands of Arab Americans in New Jersey celebrating nine eleven those are claims that are inaccurate a- and bigoted and indecent. There are too many to go through but we all remember of course that his campaign. I'm sorry his presidency began when he took okay issue when the National Park Service clearly demonstrate that his inaugural crowds were smaller than that of his predecessor but this this is something thing else the president is now using ordering the US government not just his press secretary's but the US government to further his falsehoods falsehoods when Noah put out a statement siding with the president over its own scientists last Friday that was not merely the latest example of the president's disdain disdain for facts that he does not like as assistant administrator Craig Maclean put it in a letter to Noah employee's wrote an unsigned press release from Noah that inappropriately appropriately and incorrectly contradicted the National Weather Service forecaster was not based on science but on external factors including reputation nation and appearance or simply put political Craig wrote that that press release quote compromises the ability of Noah to convey light saving information mation necessary to avoid substantial and specific danger to public health and safety. If the public cannot trust our information he wrote or we debase base our forecasters warnings and products that specific danger arises unquote and it is a danger being caused by president and trump as C. N. N.'s Kaitlan Collins now reports. The president today is denying all of us. I never did that never never did that. President trump did nine. He was involved in White House efforts to clear his name after he falsely and repeatedly claimed Alabama was in the path of Hurricane Dorian Lorient The New York Times reports his chief-of-staff directed Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross to have no issue a statement disputing the National Weather Service after it contradicted interdicted the president which Noah did but with no name attached as trump claims he was right about the weather he's also insisting he fired John Bolton and and he sat right in that year and I told him John I wish you well but I'd like you to submit your resignation and the president still blames his hawkish former national security advisor for interfering in talks with North Korea when he talked about the Libyan model for Kim Jong Un that was not a good statement to make you just take a look at what happened with Qaddafi. The Libyan leader was overthrown and killed shortly after agreeing to give up his nuclear ambitions and the North Koreans were offended after Bolton said this last year I think we're looking at the Libya model of two thousand three two thousand four the president was furious at the time and and I don't blame Kim Jong Un for what he said after that but he kept Bolton around for another sixteen months until abruptly firing in yesterday he he made very big mistakes. No prior president has ever had four national security advisers in their first three years but trump trump will name his in a matter of days but there are five people that I consider very highly qualified his last meeting with Bolton turned into a bitter fight over his this decision to invite leaders of the Taliban to camp. David talks trump brought up the Pentagon today as mark. The eighteenth anniversary of the nine eleven attacks tax. I called them off when I learned that they had killed a great American soldier from Puerto Rico though he left out where he planned to host them now J. During that Same Oval Office appearance the president sell it open to you dear of easing sanctions on Iran to secure a meeting with them saying unquote. We'll see what happens if he did that. It would make a pretty big change in his maximum pressure strategy with Iran something that John Bolton would have opposed Kevin Collins at the White House. Thanks so much. Let's chew over all this watch. Let me start with you so the Washington Post is reporting the president trump complained about the Alabama tweet from the National Weather Service the the accurate one contradicting his inaccurate one as was evidence on his twitter feed. What do you make of all this. The idea that the president is actually willing to the lengths. He's willing to go to have the national weather. Weather Service uncontradicted well as attorney Rudy Giuliani said truth isn't truth and if you're a dictator in the Middle East you're looking at Donald Trump right now saying right on my fellow right on because if the the weather is now being weaponized to protect the vein integrity of Don Trump and his narcissism you have to wonder what else is he lying about the fact that he's been lying about it for a week he took out that map that outdated map added on Alabama with the sharpie write Hashtag sharpie gate at first. We laughed but the second time we have to think about it. People rely on the weather national national security relies upon the weather businesses rely on the weather and imagine this hurricane that has devastated the Bahamas and you're sitting in Alabama. You're like wait a second Birmingham just said I'm I'm safe now. Trump my president is saying this is going to attack us. Oh wait now. Trump is doubling down. Oh wait now. There's sharp gate who do I trust and I just want to bring it back to this point. Vladimir Putin did a social media disinformation campaign and what they WANNA do is make us lose trust in our institutions and make us lose trust in our democracy to see and who better is helping him right now than president trump with sharp gate. That's the big picture and that's the fear at Noah is that if people stopped believing their forecasts because of this people actually could lose their lives yeah. That's the bottom line is if look obviously an improper to to pressure any government agency to make that change a but if it is something that is possible to cause harm to people in harm's way. We're in bad shape. It's obviously wrong. President trump denied had the report that he told his chief-of-staff Mick mulvaney detail Noah to disavow this forecasters said Alabama was not in Hurricane Doreen path but this also comes at a time. We have a new poll showing that seventy one one percent of the American people don't trust most of what they hear from the White House well look I. I think we're used to it look. I'm supportive of President Trump's policies and I think those people who support trump agreed with most of his policies. They may not like style. They may not lie his so the things that he says when he says things that are not true they still like his policies. I'm not gonNA defend his comments about the storm heading towards Alabama I agree with what you just said but at the end of the day when it comes to voting people are going to look at policy and they're we're GONNA look at the alternative and there is a foreign policy implications of this as watch suggested turn to Iran for a second this is one of the big disagreements between President Trump and John Bolton whose national secured adviser no more president trump was asked about a potential meeting with Iran's leader the UN later this month and this is what he had to say the president you get arranging competing with Iranian president honey. I'm not looking at anything. That's the UN General Assembly.
Poll: Biden leads 2020 Democrats as Warren gains, Harris slips
"New poll with the washington post is just out and here's what it says about the democratic race ahead of our ABC debate thursday night joe biden holding steady in the lead with twenty seven percent of the vote bernie sanders second in nineteen and a rising elizabeth warren now right on his heels at seventeen. That's a six point jump. Since july losing ground kamala harris she's now seven percent buddha judge o'rourke in yang all hovering between three and four percent the rest of the pack pulling at one percent or less biden has seen the democrat best position to defeat trump by a wide margin but he has a narrower edge over warren sanders over who voters think would be the best president for the country and defeating president trump is what voters say they care about most right now fifty percent say that's the priority up eleven points since april beating the forty-one forty-one percent who are more concerned about the candidates positions on key issues but this far out this race is far from settled more than fifty percent of democrats say they we are open to shifting their support to another contender.
Top CEOs say companies should put social responsibility above profit
"We're joined now by allen murray president and c._e._o. Of fortune and in full disclosure my former boss you write today that as political leadership becomes more polarized having companies more consciously focused their power on solving society's biggest problems albums is good development so i can already kind of see the warren sanders critique here which would be these companies are in part the cause of some societies biggest problems albums. How did the c._e._o.'s seem to respond to that critique. Well i think they're certainly aware of it and looked and you know full well. They may be the cause of some problems. There also the solution solution to an awful lot of problems. People want jobs. People on incomes people wanna growing economy that comes from the private sector. It doesn't come from government so i think they're two ways to look look at it. No question that this development is a result partly of partly the great recession partly pressure from employees partly of good intentions on the part of some of the c._e._o.'s but also partly as a political response to a deteriorating political environment and a sense that they have to to do better and just to keep the system. I wonder ins impossible. I guess to figure this out numerically but you know you talk about the difference between the old mission statement which was basically shareholders above of all to this being shareholder value important other things important also. Do you have any sense on how these ceos balanced that because sometimes those things come into conflict conflict no question they sometimes come into conflict look. I think this has been developing for a while. I can tell you that a lot of the ceos of the business roundtable looked at this nineteen nineteen ninety-seven statement their predecessors had adopted and said oh my god that's not the way i run my company. What are they talking about so i think this thing has been building for for a decade as c._e._o.'s come under pressure from their employees to some extent from their customers and to some extent from the political environment to do a better job job focusing on maximizing their positive benefits for society and i think you're starting to see some results from that. That's why at fortune. We do the the annual change the world list. We'll get examples of companies that are really making progress addressing social problems as part of their core business activity you made the comment in the peace and fortunate that more and more ceos have been worrying way you put it was public support for the system in which they've operated is in danger of disappearing is that a real clear and present danger angel the ceos flack from american capitalism as we've known abdin float in different ways and change but the way we've known it for your career for my career is actually in danger of disappearing. Oh some of them definitely feel that way. I don't know that it's a universal feeling but i've had in the last three years any number of private in conversations with ceos who've talked about fear of losing their license to operate one c._e._o. Of a fortune one hundred company said to me. We have about two two years to figure this out and if we don't were in trouble now what does that mean. Does that mean that all of a sudden capitalism is going to cease to exist. The companies are going to be shut down no but even if you look at the ramp up of regulation that occurred in the last few years of the obama administration in a way that's a sign of it you talk what about elizabeth warren the kind of the leftward lurch of the democratic party. That's a sign of it too. I mean the way the operating licence gets retracted is not in in one simple move but in gradual moves eroding the foundations of our capitalist system so i think it's a very real fear so you think of warren on the left and trump. I don't even want to say on the right call trumpism which is obviously not yet really in line with traditional american. Capitalism is kind of some of these c._e._o.'s are saying. Is you always hear you know who's the centrist candidate. Who's a centrist. Party are the kind of thing that's us. Yeah i and i think in fact that's the case you know. Twenty sixteen was critical year for this corporate movement because two things happened. One was the brexit vote in the u._k. When the entire political incorporate establishment was saying you must vote yes and the u._k. Voted no no and then at the same time in the u._s. For the first time in my lifetime you had this election where on the one hand you had donald trump rejecting globalization shen that had driven business prosperity since world war two and on the other hand you had bernie sanders a self proclaimed socialist almost getting the nomination you had a lot of business people say hey wait a minute. There's no one in this race who represents my views and it is interesting dan on many issues the c._e._o.'s <unk> are far more. Let's say progressive than the republican party. Climate change equal opportunity diversity gay rights issues abused human rights issues. You'll see now the corporate sector actually being way out in front of the republican party but then when you move to the economic okay issues they certainly aren't going where elizabeth warren and the green new deal folks are going so they have really emerged as kind of the center of the u._s. Political inspector how much of that is the person and i don't know how this is all balanced this. That's obviously different from company to company but how much of that is the personal politics of the c._e._o.'s do you think is you know because we work together. I spent a lotta time interviewing ceos. There are some of them who personally feel this and feel it quite quite passionately. There are others who may be more reactive but it's pretty hard to ignore. We're an economy today. That has a very tight labor market where talent talent is the most important differentiator where companies really have to compete for talent and this is one of the ways they do it. They know that millennials in particular one of worked worked for companies that they feel are doing good in the world and so they think it's important that they get their positive stories out there and hardly any big company is immune from that trend dan dan. There's a whole group of companies that use to sort of try and say out of the limelight and keep quiet who now want to tell their stories because they think it's important their employee's think they're doing good in the world. Coke industries is an interesting example that companies like bacterial that never liked to talk to the press. Now wanna talk because they i need to get their story out because they want employees to come to work for them. I think it's been pretty hard for people to resist the strand one hundred eighty one c._e._o.'s sign this revised is with this new mission statement for the business roundtable but there were some notable folks who didn't sign against eight companies that didn't sign and it's not sector-specific financials like blackstone industrials like alcoa a healthcare like kaiser permanente insurance state farm and he sends a why those companies didn't sign because they are by far in the minority here. I wouldn't want to speak on their behalf half. I think some of those are companies that are facing significant shareholder pressure. If you really have a shareholder movement organized against you. I suspect it's not a great idea yeah to sign a business roundtable statement that say shareholders don't matter as much as they used to so. I think that's part of it. I couldn't tell you why <hes> company like kaiser permanent. They didn't assigned because in terms of the principles reflected a saving. I know they operate by those principle so but i just haven't done the reporting to have specific answers for you allen murray c._e._o. I am president of fortune. The latest issue is on newsstands which are things that still exist. You pick it up. Thank you for joining us. Thanks dan
"warren sanders" Discussed on WMAL 630AM
"A lot going on there yeah do you have you ever felt the dark psychic force before every time I hear Marianne Williamson speak that's when I feel I I think you know a lot has been made of her kind of being a jokey Canada and then you and I know that Republicans are again trying to get her to be on the debate stage because their muse to death by her and I get that I find her I find her music but the joke is starting to wear off for me because as I listen to her you know what she said there that whole like dark psychic force collectivized hate in America what she's saying is that I like the the Americans who voted for Donald Trump are collectivized hate at somebody's got to be like all right jokes over you can go home now by she talked a lot about reparations and racism that was the common thread that yeah I had throughout what she was talking about I found it very interesting and and something that was surprising to me was that she came out not as progressive as Warren and Sanders that's actually calling them out on their health care proposals saying that she understands the concerns that people have about universal health care and also calling them out on campaign funds right yeah I know she attacked she actually stood out more for attacking money in politics and even Bernie Sanders did yesterday which is quite the feet which is quite the fee but that there she was doing it I but she Canada CSA is essential if I can boil it down is that Democrats need a spiritual leader they don't eat a policy maker that's basically what you're trying to do she thinks that you just need to have charismatic spiritual leader where I say that love wins and we and then I take the presidency what she says that trump is a symptom and the solution to that is Marianne Williamson yes well you know the problem is going to deal with this dark side force of the collectivized hatred that this president is bringing up in this country that's the dark side because forks of the collectivized hatred I can barely get out look I'll quit she is I you know and also she mentioned flint Michigan what need I remind you flint Michigan is a Democratic Party disaster and is there and there's this idea that like the Democrat party takes ownership of it and somehow is like is the party to solve this there's a part that created that and the disaster flint Michigan I when it was clear that the citizens are suffering due to the terrible infrastructure that was put in place and due to a city that couldn't handle its pension obligations why did they do first who did they rescue first the city employees all the city employees got clean water meanwhile the citizens of France continue to suffer end and the idea that a democratic primary would be dedicated to talking about how flint Michigan wouldn't happen under this party this is like Joe Biden just saying a week or so ago that Russia would have never tried to influence our election under my administration what the claim is it did anyway everything's opposite world and a lot of it happened again last night as Democrats were as about as left wing as we've ever heard them despite what the American people want and I truly mean that the polling is in the out going in the exact opposite direction is these Democrats are and will share some of the headliners in just a moment with you Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren a whole lot more five.
"warren sanders" Discussed on The Daily Beans
"Yeah. It's going to pass her. When you're done in the hundred days unless we flipped the Senate we might need another round of elections to get more downs in the Senate? which is what I believe will happen? As time goes on a ten year plan then you know generally after Democrats served two terms another Republican comes in and then they just reverse everybody takes back with obamacare. We got in effect and going before Obama left office and that's why it's popularity doubled and then tripled. That's why Republicans hated dammit like didn't want him to like it yeah. They tried to knock it down so many times that's like Warren. I think she'd be great for getting things done quickly. She's got plans man Yeah Yep so we'll just look lookout for that. Look out for the Sanders warned fireworks. 'cause we know I know <hes> I've I've watched them both debate quite a bit <hes> I think sanders is Kurt and terse. I very emphatic about the wealth gap yeah yeah and I think they both want the same kind of healthcare so you're probably not going to see any kind of <hes> a sort of back and forth on that with them but perhaps other things. I think that the shooting that just happened is going to come up including just shootings in general and gun control because Bernie wasn't very good on gun control because he was a senator from Vermont where they all have guns and they like their guns and he represented them and so he couldn't he didn't get very good grades. <hes> for a Democrat. He wasn't a Democrat Independent on his from the N._R._A.. <hes> or he got better guided yeah which means not generates Fran Democrats for US Yeah a Warren Sanders take it would be cool too though so she could attack them on guns she could <hes> and let's see what else is going to be in. There and I know health care will be a big big debate. <hes> of course I Russia. I think probably won't come up as much with this group because the ones who really brought it up the last time we're in the other group aren't onstage anymore are in here like de Blasio right but China came up a lot China did come up a lot. I think that's going to be an issue <hes> tariffs. I think they'll talk about the tax plan a lot because in this tax bill you know I think we were trillion dollar deficit and you know it's it's on the backs of the middle class for the benefit of the wealthy and I think this is where Warren can really shine with her wealth tax like two cents on the dollar above fifty million dollars and we'll be able to pay for so many incredible Oh programs including healthcare and college there they might differ a little bit on free tuition versus tuition reduction or yeah the very progressive ideas. Is this the drinking game by the way all these things you've listed. I feel like they're good. Oh sure might as well. It's going to be later in the evening. We can rewind reading down yeah. I'm I'm watching at a bar so I might actually play. I don't know but it's on my facebook calendar. I think I'm willing to Bet Elizabeth Warren will be asked about Bernie Sanders and in his speech on socialism and what and maybe give her a chance to back away from the word socialism and to see because a lot of their policies are identical. Would you consider yourself a socialist. I BET THEY'RE GONNA ask Warren that right but over the course of their career though Warren definitely has been more to the right than Bernie has Bernie's consistently been an independent person outwardly democratic socialist person Meyer Tenure Basically an office whereas Warren started more to the right than she is now. I I made a mistake. Tim Ryan is on the stage. Oh sorry damn but also as far as socialism goes. We're pretty much Anna Socialist Society issues for rich people right so I feel like there are so many things that are going to tell me what are socialists stuff is good stuff but it's costing the government money and the rich people aren't paying their fair share taxes to cover the cost tax cut thing that wouldn't be considered socialism for for Richmond well. It is a corporate hand..
Biden leads Trump in hypothetical matchup, poll shows
"McAuliffe someone put up some polls here in the from from fox news in general election match ups here and it Joe Biden ten points and then in descending order their Sanders warning Harris in check out the president's numbers by way they don't budge they really don't budge thirty nine to forty two is that range whether it's buying Sanders Warner I tell you a lot obviously the range of the democratic side is a much wider one goes from fourty for Harris to forty nine for fighting but the big picture here Terry is that Joe Biden standing basically is back to exactly what was the day before the first debate right why is that most people think he has the best shot of beating Donald Trump and that is the biggest issue is we go for Democrats want to be taught and they're all going to call us he has to have a good debate it wasn't as strong as performance at the first debate he has to show that he's the one that can be on stage when Donald Trump spiritually in all the insults Adam and he can punch back twice as hard how how devastating with a second sort of performance that that low worries I'm out of time all that stuff how how much without her scandals would hurt I mean because I think there's a lot of expectations on this debate I don't want this debate all about me the past what happened forty years ago he's got a provision out where we go from here in fact I would say check for all the candidates I want to hear a little bit more on K. twelve on infrastructure and cybersecurity workforce development we can as Democrats spend all our time revealing it in the past we've got to go forward and Biden has to show he can lead taking this country for you know Helene it's July of nineteen and yet there's only five candidates of the twenty that feel like have already made it to the next round whatever the next round is is going to be fifteen desperados yeah they're going to it's that that'll be a free fall it'll be interesting to see just how much they come in and who they target whether they these these people the people who were polling yeah yeah whether they they go after after Biden or whether they go after Elizabeth Warren who is you know the presumed other big big person on the on the ticket it's funny that we're not talking about Bernie Sanders as much as it was going on there Sanders Elizabeth Warren will have their own night they basically no offense to the other eight but that will be seen as the phone is off does Bernie Sanders attack Elizabeth Warren and if it does how does he do it does it yeah we know she's not she doesn't need to this is and in this it it's that you mention this is really interesting because if you think about who's been debating since the debate and mixing it up that's a good way pride and Bakir Heris Sanders who would win who's not in this mix one she's a very good job staying above the fray she's all about the policy she is all about the issues staying out of it let it be seen as a food fight all of them which is a great place to be if you're caught another brother actually not being with my absolute that's interesting we're sorry the one candidate I think may not attack Biden's come on hers this time right well I mean she had a great now the last time I which you mess it up by the deadline not having you want to run the same place twice because they might stop at the second I was responsible what's notable about obviously is just you think nothing happened the last two months but even though that speaks the status I think still there's fluidity in this race and someone by the time there is snow on the ground in Iowa will catch fire maybe it's one of the top tier candidates now maybe someone would discount I was just going to say is there anybody outside of the fight feels like we're sorry sitting on a Biden Harris worn Sanders good a judge and then everybody else there is there anybody we should we should not be overlooking other than those five at this point I always argue he should pay tens of the governors I have not had a they get others had not gotten track they have it in their seat owns that you're only billed rose the cleanings we create jobs if the balanced budgets no offense to senators and Congress folks they get to talk all day that was gonna live every single day the problem is they don't have exposure you have about our hearing or capital hearing more hearing the senators and congressmen they they referred to tens of millions of people when I was governor of people when I you're not calling me chopped asking me about you know my thoughts on I sixty six and my work we were talking about national party leader stuff some of your right just as he gets an exposure and it's hard but you know they're the ones that actually you know the CEOs listen there's a lot of debates coming up and I was the chairman I started these debates in two thousand three we didn't have before I started the party debate to give everybody a shot of getting on a stage to make your case and they're all televised and so someone could break out there could be a breakout moment I wanna go head but there was a break out movie moment for doing Castro the last debate and we haven't heard anything about common sense I mean that you you just all the reason why the governors are not going to be breaking I hope is that you look at you know at a big break out in terms of fundraising yeah you know it's really counted by just one with him whether because people look at south and they're like come and press the present United States you know I don't know we didn't even talk about him he's in the Warren Sanders night I'll be curious to see if he can make an impression outside
policy Trump says US will recognize Israel's sovereignty over Golan Heights
"Is the tweet about the United States, recognizing the annexation the annexation of the Golan Heights, which is occupied territory, but the but Israel nineteen Eighty-one effectively said, no, no, no. This is ours were never giving this up strategically makes all the sense in the world because Golan Heights is this plateau overlooking the valley right next to the gal Li I think I have it correctly and the missiles rockets used to rain down and Israel. So they took it. And now they have a decent military position. But the entire world looks at Israel as. As an illegal occupier. And for the president to do this. Let's talk about the political ramifications because there's really relates to the Democrats and the candidates who have said we want. No part of this Sanders. Elizabeth warren. Booker Booker, Kamala, Harris who are as far as the Israeli lobbyists. Concerned are pro Palestinian what does that mean in terms of the Jewish lobby money because APEC the largest Jewish organization which has been hundreds of millions of dollars. What does all that mean? So this is what I think prompted the tweet I think it was actually some real strategic Riyan on part of the president first of all the president likes to be seen as just the most pro Israel ever to walk the earth. He and he's encouraged by his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who's that's what he's focusing on a lot. Close the President Trump's close allies with people like Sheldon Adelson who are. Sanely lives to that besides making money, they are pro Israel. So that's all of a win. But I think more importantly Trump and his team recognized an opportunity with this congresswoman Omar's perceived antisemitic remarks and Trump realized that if he is able to drive a wedge further out and four democratic primary contenders to be even more anti Israel, Than's already floating out that not only is it a win for Trump and his base because being in the Republican party. It's interesting. It's almost the opposite. Being pro Israel is almost a litmus test these days to be a good Republican. But for Trump if he can choke off another significant support of pocket of money for the democrat eventual democratic nominee that he's a massive win. And it's not as if these dollars now, we'll sit on the sidelines. They will go. Trump Trump will enjoy the benefit of those it was and I thought this to a smart smart move by the presbytery small. So this was not shooting from the hip. This was well fide he knew with one tweet that he could not only choke off the Democrats money. Hap- schizo votes in the process. I don't really that's what it's about it gets choking their money off an unlocking. Not Justice Sheldon Adelson the world. Remember, a pack is technically nonpartisan they do raise money for both sides of the aisle. They don't care if you're pro Israel, they're going to support you, but now boycotting and not attending a pack event. Which? You just never seen. Nobody does especially if it doesn't matter democrat Republican because it's a question of this powerful powerful organization that supports Israel. Well, it's it's the American Jewish organization is what it is. I mean, I think if I had to put a concrete dollar figure what Trump cost the Democrats and probably made himself. I would estimate just in this upcoming cycle anywhere from thirty to one hundred and fifty million dollars believable. What good does it do the book the bookers? And the Kamala Harris is and Elizabeth Warren Sanders to take a stand, which is perceived anti Israel. I think that they just felt that they had no choice because the they're running on the idea of everyone is good. They're the underdog collusion. Exactly. They don't want to alienate anybody don't remember much like Barack Obama didn't really want to take a position you want upset anybody. That's what. The Democrats are doing and what you see in these primaries. It's look it happens on both sides. The Democrats have a primary this go round is when one candidate leading candidates say Sanders anchors out on that position. The wrestling just go to because they don't want to be thought as the lesser of the progressives. Just one quick last one the move towards inclusion by alienating the Jewish lobby and by the way for those people say, oh, there's no Jewish lobby. It's a huge lobby the Cy kid ourselves there just strategically. Yes there. I would if they do here's the deal, they're lobby, but they're not a big enough voting block got difference and the block that these Democrats are chasing are largely minorities. And they don't want to be on the wrong side of that issue. They don't wanna give any other candidate in this race. The ability say I'm more progressive than he or she is and progressive. Means it's not pro Palestinian, certainly a more even-handed say less alienating of anyone. Right. They don't want to say that any there. Then what say that anybody's better than anybody else? They don't wanna do
"warren sanders" Discussed on The Lead with Jake Tapper
"I'm not smart enough to know who's right who's wrong. But I know a lot of conservatives who nod their head vigorously when Elizabeth Warren says I want to go after big tech. That's a prize as me. Yeah. I think there is there is some of that partly you hear that. Yeah. It's partly because there's some speech issues and feel the feeling that on Facebook or Twitter that yeah service don't get a fair shake their beliefs. So that's that's where some of that comes from. But like Bernie. Warren's lane and she's got a swerve in there and try to make her Mark. And I can't express to Democrats enough. How much it matters your name ID and your money at the beginning of these things 'cause you'll pop to the top of polling, and then it sort of snowballs as we saw with Donald Trump in a big field. Right. And so she's got to get in there and make noise, and that's what she's attempting to do. Okay. I'm gonna put this one to you. Because on the Republican side, Maryland governor Larry HOGAN is just returning from Iowa. And here's how he responded to people asking about that. Visit. I also thought it would just be great to spend forty eight hours in subzero temperatures into Moines. I thought it'd be fun. You know? But that doesn't mean I'm actually running for anything. But we're gonna we're gonna keep talking about the things we think are important you call for Republicans to speak out against Donald Trump. Is that something you encourage somebody to not to speak out? But try to primary him it's not mainly about speaking out against Donald Trump. That's not the point is to speak for the principles that we believe in and call him out. So someone like Larry HOGAN, take it to the next. Look, I am a big advocate of as many options as possible. I think it's good for America. I think it's good for us to have a choice. So if he wants to jump into the race and has good ideas and some good thoughts and supports again re markets, and the things that have made people that made this country so successful that I'm willing to hear it. I think that we need to have as many options as possible. And yes, I may I may get some phone calls after this. But I think I think options are good for people. I really do. I'm guessing you might get many phone calls that bring. Okay, I'm okay with that. Yeah. Right. We'll talk about that in the break. Everybody stand by because we want to also make sure you know, that Jake tapper the host of this program will host tonight's presidential town hall with twenty twenty candidates Senator Elizabeth Warren it is live from Jackson Mississippi.

"warren sanders" Discussed on The Lead with Jake Tapper
"I don't think anybody could say that the president's anti Muslim the president is not a white supremacist. I'm not sure how many times we have to say that. How many times does he have to say that? I'm k-. Look, I think the attempts. The president's language is often bad his rhetoric has often bad. I've spoken out against it from the beginning. In fact, I very settling was wrong. When the first time he went out to retain, I was like well that should do that campaign in if not, but I do think the tempt to connect it to violent acts of other individuals can be a reach. And I'm wary about doing that with anyone any violent extremists actions because I think it can endanger speech, but like like all these things like separating Senator McCain's actions from the person and his duty to America in the great things. He did it's easy to just say the right thing. Right. If you know what the right thing is. And but he does not I think that's the answer. I still think the six most disgraceful words of all. The disgraceful words. President Trump's ever uttered are very fine. People on both sides after Nazis marched in America. The. Thomas Jefferson in Charlottesville and said Jews will not replace us. And then one of the murdered Heather hire a young woman who was standing for peace and reconciliation Justice. And that that that broke America's heart. And it's why today when the president doesn't speak out against white supremacist attack in New Zealand half a world away, which is not his fault at all. But we do look for some sort of moral leadership. And he doesn't show that leadership. I think that's why Mick Mulvaney. He was not asked is the president of white supremacist. He sort of volunteers at and I think he's sort of gives up the game when he says, oh, no not a white supremacist. Oh, really? And he is he the president is in such a place that if he would have said, oh, I saw this manifesto. And I completely denounce it that would have taken him miles and miles and miles more than it would, you know, probably for anybody else because he hasn't done and it didn't close to that. All right, everyone this issue for a long from the beginning with the appointment of Steve Bannon. So everybody stand by maybe he doesn't. Need policies specifics the big boost for better or worse campaign? But did Senator Bernie Sanders..
