"Wooo. Morning. Everyone on a Monday morning No. Mladen is filling in. For Michael this morning, Norm got a tweet from a listener name, Ron. Right? And he says to me, I think if the president told gnome he could have a full head of hair by tomorrow, he would go out and buy a comb and a brush. So I guess I guess I guess wrong things who you're buying what the president's selling a right, apparently. That's pretty good. I like that. That's funny. Where do you buy that? Kobe Brush Big three stories this morning. It is 50 days from today. Election Day, Joe Biden continues to lead in the polls. The president held an indoor rally in Nevada last night. That drew a lot of criticism. Also in the Big Three mask up starting today, If you don't wear a mask on public transportation, New York you can be fined. $50 and rounding out the Big three Well, the NFL season began in earnest yesterday. Some teams protest that, for example, the Jets they played in Buffalo. Neither the Jets nor the bills. Left their locker rooms during the national anthem. Ah, I don't know how I feel about that gnome. I think there should be a leaguewide policy there. Play the anthem Don't play the anthem Be there. I dont be there, but I don't know this ad hoc. Kind of letting the inmates run the asylum. I don't know if I'm in favor of, you know, I disagree with you. I think this is their platform. The football field is their platform. The basketball court is their platform, and they understand. That's when they have the most eyes and ears and so if they want to make a statement, that's the place to make it. Yeah, I just don't know. I mean, you know, because a lot of people have said the Ah Ah, kneeling during the national anthem is disrespectful for the flag. I don't know if I buy that argument. I think not being happy with Ah, with what's perceived as racial injustice. You want to make the country better? You're not anti Americans, so I have a lot of mixed feelings about all this, and I guess my bottom line is I think the players have plenty of time they can protest on days off in their own time. I don't know why you have to bring it onto the field up oil, because that's is that naive on my part, yes, because the eyes and ears of these most famous players the superstars like LeBron James or somebody like that is when they're on the court. That's when they have the attention of the American people. So If they're going to make a protest and show that you know that they, you know, say what they want to say. That's the place to do it. And why don't necessarily always agree with they have to say, You know, they have the right to say. Yeah. I just think sports should be. I think you know, we turned into sports to get away from the real world. And I I don't know if I'm in favor of bringing the real world in at all times. We always have to be subjected to political discussions. Why can't we just Why can't we just have some damn sports? You know, we've done it before We did it during the civil rights movements with the Olympians with their fists in the air as they stood on the podium, getting their medals. And when people feel like it's time to revolt or push back, that's a great place to do it because people are paying attention. And what you know you may not agree with them. I don't always agree with him. I think it is the right place to do it very interesting that you would take that point of view. Alright, I'm going to bring out our next guest. Ah. Her name is the cold. Galina. She's a contributing editor of The New York Post. And, Ah, her article very interesting. Ah, she said. We need more neighborhoods to revolt against City Hall. So she's calling for, you know, we'll ask her. I don't think she's calling for civil disorder. But ah anti city hall protests from neighborhoods in the coal. Welcome to the program. What was the Basis of your article. Good morning. Good morning. Um, thanks for having me on well over the past couple of weeks, we've seen both the Upper West Side and people in Long Island City. Sort of look. Att how poorly the de Blasio administration has handled the placement of mentally ill and addicted, vulnerable people. Man essentially just warehousing them in hotels with no supervision during the day, where, here on these streets, So if they're if they're still addicted to drugs, there's all sorts of temptations in in drug sales on the streets and everything else. So the way that the deposit Administration place these people at $200 a night by the way, not good for the people there allegedly trying to help and also not good for these neighborhoods where people you know, live and work, and they they, they're out with your Children. They're out going to the supermarket and being subjected to seeing open air drug use. Ah, sexual acts in a lot of physical and verbal assaults on streets. And so the good news. The bad news is that we still haven't fixed this problem. The good news is you have both. These neighborhoods organized themselves. You know, the Upper West Side a master the two separate groups of Facebook group with more than 15,000 people and a new community groups, the Westside Community Organization or West Co. Ah, took in $100,000 in donations, hired a lawyer and did manage to get the De Blasio's administration to say this is unacceptable. This is this is an unacceptable way to treat these men. In and to see this level of disorder on the streets, so the administration has at least close down these hotels. Now again, The bad news is, we're just still playing musical chairs with these vulnerable don't men. You know, we've had seven years of the progressive government spending more than $2 billion a year on the homeless and still not come up with a solution. But the good news is that it shows that even this city Hall will pay attention when people organize themselves. When they asked for us. This is a goal, So we need to be doing that in more neighborhoods. You know, I think they do respond, but only because it is the the wealthy Upper West side. You know if they move the shelter to bed Stuy where people don't have the money to hire a lawyer and people were working jobs where they have to be at their jobs during the day and can't be on streets Protest ng They can't win that homeless shelter will be put in their neighborhood and those drug dealers. They're there, so that doesn't seem fair. Yeah. I mean, I think what the criticism too. That is. Why do we have a progressive government that says if you don't have the resources to organize yourselves, If you don't understand how the levers of government work, then you were going to be subject to a quality life that's unacceptable. In other neighborhoods, and we see the same thing with violent crime, too. I mean, you know, it's kind of like a real tale of two cities here that if you're eating outside In a wealthy neighborhood. You're sitting at your outdoor tables. You're having a great time..

"So intellectually I, completely understand why things happen overnight. but the truth is a matter is as we have had conversations, people have come up with some good ideas that were trying to implement and perhaps had we had earlier knowledge. We could have started that work sooner. For example, a local nonprofit has agreed to open up their space for the shelter residents during the day if they want to go somewhere and. Do. Whatever I mean one of the things they're doing and your other gas. Melissa. had a great hand in. This is finding nonprofits who will run resume writing workshop. Mean had all of those things been in place I sure that would have been better but realistically probably can't happen. When we had the big hold lou over the sex offenders. you know which is a very reasonable concern I. Found out about it from a reporter. you know. I think it would have been helpful to get good at Information Brom Department of Homeless Services I I mean one of the things we've learned is that the New York the registry is often wrong. and. You. Know would have been good for me to be able to say that immediately. But I haven't you know what? I've been doing this sort of catch up you know I've been learning as we go along. So you know one day I hear one thing I research it tied to find out about grass. Is there any real concerns there of course and get other things set in motion So for example Bring Melissa Bring Melissa Melissa what do you think? Do you think that if? Your neighbors, an upper west side had been given more notice had been given a chance to engage which may not have been possible in this situation. It probably wasn't just as a hypothetical though do you think that the opposition would be as fervent and in some cases ugly as it's been? It's hard for me to go back in time and imagine how what would have made a difference and I would say I I'm a little mystified by the focus on the the process which I agree with could have been handled much better but focusing on what was done wrong three months ago. Does. Or two months ago in the case of a project or new. Alexa Lucerne. Help US moving forward So I I'll just begin by saying that. However. Lacking the process was. It doesn't necessarily have anything to do with where we are now in terms of. Lewd to drive out the the shelter staff and residents. Driving Well. So so what I was going to say is I do think that one thing that the city and vhs could have done and that I think I wish they still would do. Is Give residents give permanent residents of the neighborhood more information. Our. Months at least. Misinformation and rumors have been flying all over the place. So for instance, the Westside Community Organization go fund me page. Still, today. Says that there are sex offender registered sex offenders in the hotel. They have all been moved. you know the NYPD has said this the shelter operators have said this unless we get into conspiracy theory territory. That sentence should not be there to raise money..

We have Jonathan Capehart, opinion writer for The Washington Post in Hope and host of the Cape up podcasts. Welcome back to the program. Thank you. And David Brooks, columnist for The New York Times. Welcome back, David. Great to be with you again. Ality. Yeah, Good to hear your voice is well so first. Let's just start with that depiction of the President David, I want to start with you. Do you actually recognize the version of Trump depicted this week? It was so weird that if you would just judge the convention, you would think this Republican administration have been all about racial reconciliation. It's preexisting conditions. Rarely has a convention been so at odds with all the stories when covering the last 3.5 years. What struck me about the Trump speech was that he had no cohesive argument to it. No cohesive strategy for the campaign. What issues he wants to highlight, no coherent single critique of Biden that he wants to get across no coherent message. It was just a Rambo, and I think it reflects a campaign that's has yet to really devise an overall grand strategy for what they're doing. Jonathan was Biden the Boogeyman here, though, Or was it the party itself? We heard a lot of conversation about governors and cities. Yes, I think it was both It was the party and it was And it was Joe Biden. Um, you know, you would think to add onto what David was saying. You would also think that President Trump were not the incumbent. Ah, and not someone who had a record of his own. You would think that the incumbent was Joe Biden. The other thing I would add about the president's speech, David called it incoherent. I've seen other people call it a mish mash into me. It was more of the same. A lot of what the president had to say. We heard it when he spoke in Charlotte on Monday. We've heard it through every so called Corona Virus press briefing in the weeks leading up to that moment, and we've been hearing it really Since since his election. He's been really been in underscoring of something in particular, right, especially when it comes to law and order. Trump claimed that Democrats would quote give free rein to violent anarchist and agitators and criminals who threaten our citizens. And destroy the American way of life. And that is the new and that is the one new thing. It's becoming a little old now because we know we see what he's doing. He's trying to scare the electorate. He is trying to particularly square scare. White voters who might be feeling uncomfortable voting for him again because of his bullying on Twitter, or from the podium at a campaign rally or from or from the White House. And looking for a thread of an excuse to vote for him again, and the the vandalism and violence that we have seen in cities in some cities across the country. He is hoping the president is hoping that fear of that coming to other people's neighborhoods and communities will spur them to run to him in November. David, I want to ask you a question..
