"I booked my flight, I'm going to D.C.. What are you going to do with D.C.? What do you mean? I'm going to go ask the stuttering John type questions to every freaking right wing lunatic politician that I can get freaked in a microphone in front of their face. And I've already hired a couple of writers and we've been coming up with questions nonstop. I mean, we got questions specifically for Marjorie trailer green Lauren bobert. Kevin McCarthy. I mean, Mitch McConnell. I mean, it's like, you know, it's like, it's like, it's like what I used to walk around with when I was on the stern show. I would have like a booklet of questions for each different celebrity. And that's what we've been working on. So I'm gonna go down there. Greg, I ain't gonna confront these Jack alones and hopefully get some good viral interviews with some of these people. This is a good project. You got grassley you gotta find grassley. Yes, you gotta ask him, you know, you know, what was William McKinley like? I mean, when you guys used to hang out, like, was he? Well, he was nice as everybody said, I don't know. Well, an old joke that I wrote that I wrote goofing on Jackie to Jonathan was chuck grassley who likes to bet on the ponies because he knows since that's how his mail was delivered. I'm proud of that joke. I'm not saying chuck grassley's old. Trump grass is so old. How old is he? How old is he? I don't know. He was methuselah a quarter. I don't know. He's not one of them. I forget who's joke that is. But what the hell would we just talking about? Getting back to mad magazine. Yeah, you know, and I love the little thing in the back that you wouldn't have to fold cover the backup. Oh yeah, yeah, yeah. That was only comes out with the secret like answer. It was so funny. I mean, and one of my biggest honors was to be depicted in not one, but at least two mad magazine things like so they had like the guy draw me up in a man magazine. Oh, that's pretty cool. Yeah. Yeah, like it was so, you know, it was me with the long hair in the microphone. I wish I still saved that magazine because then cracked would do a whole page, stuttering John questions for this and that. You know, it was so cool to be part of these magazines that were a big part of my childhood, you know? I don't know, because I don't know how that feels. But I imagine that it must have been pretty awesome. I wrote some parodies of poems that I sent to them one time and I rejected it, but they wrote down on the thing they said, we can't use these, but these are funny. And I always felt like that was really cool. Oh, wow. That's awesome. So I got that going for me, you know. I always used to say that GW was our Alfred E Newman president. He does look like him. I mean, certainly looks like.

He's given five hundred speeches over the past ninety days today alone. He's been up since six an giving eighteenth speeches all over nebraska for the past twelve hours. But he can't give up just yet he's going to give ten more speeches between now and eleven o'clock tonight tomorrow is election day after all and he's going to give it all. He has until the very end below the balcony. Crowd of thousand people are waiting to hear from the great commoner. Hush falls over the crowd as will begins ladies and gentlemen. This is the last opportunity that i shall have to dress the people of lincoln before they sit in judgment upon the issues present in this campaign. Tomorrow we'll decide the financial policy of this nation for the next four years. At least three months. I have done what i could present. This question to. The american people traveled from nebraska to the atlantic and everywhere i have preached the same doctrine in advocated the same principles. They called it a sexual question when we began but they have found out that it is not a sectional question. It is a great controversy between the money. Power and the common people of all this country. I want you to understand campaign which we have had to fight. They have told us that the great interests of society were against us. Yes certain great interest have been the trusts have been against us but the trust are no more against me than i am against the trusts. The syndicates which have been selling bonds for the government are against me. But my friends. They have reason to be. Because if i am elected they will no longer bleed the american people. They see that the corporations are against us. Yes many of them are and they have reason to be because we believe that the corporation is a creature of law and that the government was created it is still greater than the corporation and should compel it to obey the law. We felt the influence of some of these corporations. We know what it is to have them say two men who are with us that if they vote our ticket they must be discharged and lose their bread and butter but my friends while we have against us many of these influences which are considered great and potent. We have on our side. Those who believe in the old fashioned idea of government that it should guard equal rights to all and special privileges to know friends. Varas the day upon which you register your will. Tomorrow is the day when by your ballot you described government under which you desire to live if you desire government of syndicates by syndicates enforced indicates you have a right to it and you can. Her influence with those who are against us. Still believe in the government that lincoln desire the government of the people by the people and for the people you must join with those who believe in a government hide at people work that lies before president who goes into the office with a desire to reform the financial policy. Dr trusts syndicates. From this land will be hard enough. If you supported by the people his work would be impossible became. We're not supported by them. We'll wraps up a speech cloud explodes into a closet cries of the next day. Millions of voters turn out to vote for one of the two williams the civil war vet and former governor of ohio. Republican candidate william mckinley or the great commoner and us congressman for nebraska democratic candidate william jennings bryan. Perhaps urban workers feel the need to support the business for which they work. Perhaps will consistent appeals to farmers populists alienated city folk regardless the results are soon clear. We'll mckinley takes. The densely populated northeast the northern midwest. Out to north dakota and part of the west coast william jennings bryan's takes the rest but it's not enough.

The economy's about to boom though. Crediting william mckinley for that might be a bit of a stretch as you likely remember. From episode eighty eight. The yukon gold rush is about to begin. That's going to shift the nation's gold two silver ratio as it happens silver issues going to kind of fizzle out. But the battle isn't over. William jennings bryan immediately publishes.

"Former governor then descends from cotton shake hands with the mining. So goes a typical day in william mckinley front porch campaign rather than storm across the country to rally up the voters. The republican candidate is leading voters. Come to him and they definitely come over the course of the campaign. Roughly seven hundred fifty thousand americans from across the nation. Make the track to the mckinley. Halmi canton ohio to hear him. Speak against his free silver democratic opponent william jennings bryan. The republican will continue to assail. The democratic will over the free silver issue. Will mckinley loads what he sees. As will brian stirring up divisions and making class warfare to quote the ohio republican on another front porch occasion my countrymen the most un-american of all appeals observable in this campaign is the one which seeks to array labor against capital employer against employee. Basically william m doesn't want this to turn into a campaign of main street verse wall street but that dynamic is definitely taking shape with particular thanks to his own campaign manager and republican national committee. President mark hanna. Working out of new york mark leans into the class division rhetoric as he courts donations from industrial titans. This produces serious results the tycoons or robber barons whom we've come to know quite well pony up john rockefeller's standard oil donates. Two hundred fifty thousand dollars. John himself throws in another two thousand five hundred. The barren of banking j pierpont morgan donates. Another two hundred fifty thousand dollars to the republican cause and those still reeling from the panic of eighteen ninety three and the pullman strike various railroads managed to muster another one hundred seventy four thousand all in all with donations from business tycoons pouring in daily the republican campaign spins about three point five million dollars by comparison. The democrats raise a measly three hundred thousand dollars to put that another way. John rockefeller and his company alone gave will mckinley. The rough equivalent of eighty percent of will brian total campaign budget. And that will go a long way toward shoring up. The republican candidate not leaving his front porch. Look we'll mckinley isn't stupid will. Brian is a brilliant speaker. I mean striking crucifix. Pose while making a tasteful jesus reference that skill and that's why along with considerations for his wife. Ida's health will. Mckinley isn't about to go toe to toe. Travelling the country he bluntly tells his campaign manager. Mark hanna. I cannot take the stump against that man. It's a smart play but also one that will mckinley can make in part with massive war chest with that capital. The republican hires one thousand four hundred speakers to go across the country stoking. Fear that o'brien administration will mean the destruction of american business. Industrial leaders threatened close down if the great commoner as will brian has called gets elected which scare some workers into thinking twice about voting for the democrat. The republicans also published one hundred twenty million pieces of campaign literature as well as newspaper articles attacking brian. The mckinley campaign even suggests that the young nebraskan isn't just for free silver but a true radical an anarchist. Just like the protesters at the hey marketed decade. Back sound stacked. But it's not like william jennings bryan doesn't have his supporters grover cleveland style bourbon. Democrats now called gold democrats peeling off but will. Brian is seen real success. Rallying democrats all over the south and west while some industrial workers fear. Brian's policies will lead to their place of employment getting shut down. The unions counted out with support in fact october meeting with workers. In new york's union square. Some even call him quote the new messiah. The light of the world the fearless tribune. Of the people william jennings bryan close quote moreover. The populist party joined the democrats in nominating will brian. He gets support from the significantly. More radical eugene debs to eugene rights to the democratic candidate quote. You are at this hour. The hope of the republic close quote and so the very different candidates campaign and they're very different ways. we'll. Mckinley gives front porch speeches and relies on mailers and hired speakers. Will the free silver messiah. Brian leans on his rhetorical skills. The young nebraskan travels over eighteen thousand miles on four nonstop railroad trips. Giving five hundred seventy speeches between august and november. He averages eighty thousand words a day drawing thousands of listeners in up to twenty three speeches a day which is more effective. We'll find out shortly but one thing is certain regardless of who wins between big business financing and across country speaking tour a new era has begun an american presidential elections..

Over the next few days a mob largely unattached the a are you or pullman employees. Take on the troops by july ninth thirty. Our dad scores more wounded. And chicago's occupied by force. Fourteen thousand men this nationwide strike called the pullman strike will be crushed before the month is out and the american railway unions leaders including a. Are you president eugene. V debs will be sent to prison just as the panic of eighteen. Seventy three helped pave the way for the great railroad strike of eighteen. Seventy seven so another panic panic of eighteen ninety three contributed to the pullman strike of eighteen. Ninety four i've mentioned this panic. A few times are gilded age episodes. But let me be clear. It's a heavy blow like its predecessor. Twenty years prior the panic of eighteen ninety three starts with the railroads in domino's from their hundreds of banks and railroads along with several thousand businesses. Go under a. Stocks tumble as many as four million people got is roughly twenty percent of the american workforce or out of work. These are the conditions that george pullman points to as he cuts workers wages amid increase dividend payments. This is also the economy. That grover cleveland encounters. Right as he returns to the white house the second time new president is sure he knows what the cause of. This recession is though he lays the blame for the panic squarely on the shoulders of the eighteen ninety harrison administration law that increase the amount of silver. The us government buys each year permits paper money to be backed by that same precious metal. This is the sherman silver purchase act. Okay this takes us into the question of the gold standard which is a huge to do in the gilded age united states without going too far into the weeds. Let me remind you that. During the civil war the us started issuing treasury notes called greenbacks. They became a form of currency ride alongside minted gold and silver coins but after the war the us government reduced the number of greenbacks in circulation. This deflationary move hit southerners and westerners hardest as did congress. Eighteen seventy three decision to in silver coinage as mining out west rocked the nation's gold two silver ratio understandably then gilded age american laborers and farmers want to see these policies reversed. Thus the greenback party was born in the eighteen seventies. it hasn't succeeded though so now. Silver advocates are taking up the inflation mantle civil rights as the silver fans are known want us currency to include both gold and silver since american silver so plentiful the argue that coining metal in this quote unquote by metal system at a silver to gold ratio of sixteen to one will inflate the dollar's value and thereby helped poor farmers and laborers pay the mortgage or rent but grover cleveland his bourbon. Democrats and most republicans disagree. They believe that by will only put the dollar on shaky ground and lead to gold hoarding. I really can't overstate. How significant this fightes. Curiously on july first 1893 it led to grover having a cancerous tumor removed from his mouth in a secret surgical procedure out at sea on a yacht. How does that track. This is because his vice president adly stevenson is a silver right and grover doesn't want gold standard supporting investors taking the economy over fears. A silver might soon ascended the presidency and it all turns out well for the gold interests. Post-surgery grover orchestrates the repeal of the sherman silver purchase act putting the us back on the gold standard. He also asks his friend. The influential banker tycoon or robber-baron. J pierpont morgan to bail out the us treasury by purchasing sixty million dollars worth of bonds with gold average workers and farmers are livid as they see it. Not only is the economy in the dumps but it seems everyone the president of congress the courts and both major parties are all in cahoots with big money interests. So what can they do. they organize. Remember the farmer's alliance. I mentioned when we were in texas. Where farmworkers hurting in the new industrial economy joined to fight big business well 1891. Those alliances formed the people's party. Otherwise called the populist party by the mid eighteen ninety s this small third party opposing any legislation in favor of big business swells to twenty five to forty five percent of the electorate and some twenty states but it still isn't enough to compete in the big leagues to the populists disappointment. There eighteen ninety two presidential candidate james. Weaver only carries four states. Urban workers are organizing as well on these years but of course you already know that we witnessed that firsthand as the american railway union pushed back. George pullman grover. Cleveland tried to alleviate the situation by offering the pullman company's employees nominal support he promoted congress's recognition of labor as a federal holiday.

Blaine ben brings far less baggage and has an impressive political resume that includes being civil war vet lawyer. Us senator and party leader nor does it hurt the bins. Pedigree is as american as apple pie. His father was a congressman. His grandfather was short lived. Us president william henry harrison and his great grandfather was the declaration of independence signing virginia. By the same name benjamin harrison thus the diminutive five foot six republican will seek to arrest the office of president than the nearly six foot over two hundred fifty pound democratic incumbent. Now as i said earlier the two major parties currently do not differ much policy that means political campaigns of the era often come down to add hominem character assassination as we saw in eighteen. Eighty four with questions over grover. The goods sexual past and james blames fancy dining habits in eighteen eighty eight. The new rumor is that the newlywed president wants drunkenly. Beat his young bride francis. Meanwhile the democrats try to make something of been. Harrison's fondness for wearing a beaver hat. They seeing his grandfather's hat is too big for ben republicans. Reply the same old hat if it's been just right but this election we'll get more into policy than the last grover. Cleveland has given the republicans something to distinguish themselves from the democrats. The question of the tariff growers been going on and on about lowering the tariff. Lately last december he devoted his annual message speech. That future generations will call the state of the union to the idea of lower tariffs. He said the plain simple duty which we owe. The people is to reduce taxation to the necessary expenses of an economical operation of the government and to restore to the business of the country. The money which we hold in the treasury through the perversion of governmental powers. These things can and should be done with safety to all our industries without danger to the opportunity for remunerative labor which are working men need and with benefit to them and all our people by keeping their means of subsistence and increasing measure of comforts in brief overseas the government holding too much cash. Roughly one hundred forty million and thinks it's time to cut. Uncle sam's take a lower the prices on goods by lowering international tariffs. He's he's a win for everyone but republicans disagree they depict. The democratic president is a free trade zealot whose policies will hurt american businesses and workers as they compete against europe's quote unquote hopper labor. Things only get worse gore on this front and final weeks before the election. George could be a california. Republican writes a letter posing as a british man named charles murchison to the british ambassador to the united states. Sir lionel sackville west in it george asks for whom he should. Vote the ambassador. Replies there is every reason to believe that while upholding the position. He has taken president. Grover cleveland will manifest a spirit of conciliation in dealing with tariff essentially. If grover gets elected the british expect he will push for a lower tariff with them.

The sherman antitrust act hoping to use it to break up some of the massive corporations forming in the country ek standard oil and carnegie steel. But it doesn't take long for average citizens to realize that the tariffs are benefiting big business while they the average citizens are paying more for goods nor is the sherman antitrust act gain and forced as a result the democrats crushed the republicans in the eighteen ninety midterm election and in eighteen.

"Is for gotten history. Vice presidents by their nature are Rather anonymous and rather easily forgotten. Richard Mentor Johnson, George Dallas and Skylar Colfax aren't exactly household names, but sometimes Extraordinary men are relevant. It'd are elevated to this rather anonymous an ordinary office and do with it extraordinary things they advise. They craft policy and sometimes They make music. This is the forgotten history of the vice presidential pop star. Charles Daws was a man of many interests in many talents, something of a microcosm of America itself.

Charles Dawes from an early age knew that he wanted to live up to his famous family name. But how? In what field He loved music and played the piano and composed music and even wrote a popular song for the piano and violin entitled Melody in a major. But to make money he knew he needed a more sensible career. He practiced law for years, but his talent for business eventually lead him into the gas industry, where he made his fortune. His success in business in both Illinois and Wisconsin, attracted the attention of politicians in both states and the Republican Party of Illinois convinced him to run the state's effort to elect William McKinley to the presidency. After McKinley one, he appointed Dawes as his controller.

The Teddy Bear!

The Teddy Bear!

"Early in the year of Nineteen O one. The manager of the Bronx Zoo in New York got a very unusual letter. The typewritten note was dated January. Second Gentleman I have a small named Jonathan Edwards and we find we do not have the accommodations to keep him so I should like to present him to the Bronx Zoological Gardens. Can you send someone out here to tend to his shipment then written by hand next to this is a further question? I think it says or shall I ship him myself but it's hard to read the messy scribbled handwriting in any case the letter is signed yours. Truly t roosevelt. Now as you might have guessed that T- Roosevelt is Theodore Roosevelt. A man who would soon unexpectedly find himself as the president of the United States. But that probably wasn't the first thing that jumped out to William Hornets manager of the Bronx Zoo. His thoughts were probably something like bear a bear a pet bear in New York. Of course you don't have any accommodations to keep them. Who Does he's a bear and wait. Did you say his name is Jonathan Edwards? Were kind of name. Is that for a bear name. A bear poo or growly or berry made even snuggles. If he's got the right personality but Jonathan Edwards Kinda Weirdo. Oh right teddy. Roosevelt Theodore you see Theodore. Roosevelt had just finished his duty. As governor of New York State that term ended on December thirty first and on that upcoming March fourth he would be sworn in as vice president of the United States in the time between governing and vice president and it seems teddy him. The idol was trying to take care of some personal matters which included but were not limited to a live bear rather than ask the million questions that were surely. On the zookeepers. Mind William Hornets. Just said yes. It was Teddy Roosevelt after all right right but Hornets did ask where on earth the bear came from soon to be vice president. Roosevelt had already moved on to other matters because his reply was short. And Sweet. My dear Mr Hornets. The back came from West Virginia. Very Truly Theodore Roosevelt's. Let's not a lot of information from a man who could be pretty verbose that means he talked a lot and he also wrote a lot dude wrote thirty five books in his lifetime over one hundred and fifty thousand letters to people so you'd think he could have offered a bit more explanation as to what he was doing with a bear at his house a few months prior he did elaborate a bit more in one of those one hundred and fifty thousand letters that he wrote to a friend. He told his pal that some supporters in West Virginia had presented the bear to him as a gift. And well. You can't say no to a gift especially a Harry. One was sharp teeth honestly. A pet bear wasn't entirely off the Charts the Roosevelt while Jonathan Edwards. The bear would eventually go to live in the Bronx Zoo. It might not have felt that much different. From the Roosevelt home to the creature he would have been more than us to being surrounded by a mess of animals. And I'm not talking about the six Roosevelt kids running around the home. I'm talking about all of their pets. The list of Roosevelt family pets goes on and on there was a lizard named bill and a pig named MoD a badger named Josefa and a blue macaw named Eli Gail Barron. Sprinkle was a hen and Peter was of course a rabbit. There are also a whole bunch of Guinea pigs with names. That don't disappoint. They were called Admiral. Dewey Dr Johnson Bishop Tone Fighting Bob Evans and Father O'Grady. As if that weren't enough there was also a one. Legged Rooster Hyena a pony and my favorite a Green Garter. Snake named Emily Spinach. As you can see the Roosevelt's took their pets and their pet names quite seriously. Animal hijinks and Shenanigans were very common among the six Roosevelt kids once when brother. Archie was sick in bed. His siblings hatched a scheme to cheer him up. They lead their pony up the stairs to his room to surprise him which it certainly did but the pony was more excited to see his reflection in a bedroom mirror so much so that he would not leave and then there was the time that Quinton burst into his father's office at the time. Teddy Theodore Right. Sorry Theodore was in the middle of an important closed-door meeting with senators and other politicians closed doors. Don't always mean much to a kid with animals in his pockets and Quinton didn't think twice about interrupting the meeting. The men kindly obliged pause the meeting while the boy threw his arms around his beloved father who Shirley laughed proudly and started to shoot the boy away but Quinton had a surprise. The boy pulled four snakes out of his pocket and place them on the table in the middle of the room. Apparently these men did not have a similar menagerie of animals in their own households because these powerful yet easily frightened men jumped up like popcorn scrambled to the edge of the room. Faster than Greece geese it was surely a funny moment for the Roosevelt's so as we've said Jonathan Edwards would live his days in the Bronx Zoo but he wasn't the only fateful bear in Teddy's life. Okay he wasn't the only fateful bear in Theodore's life no there was another. Roosevelt was sworn in as vice president and March of nineteen o one and six months later in September. He was president of the United States. It wasn't supposed to happen that way. But President William McKinley was assassinated while attending the world's bear in Buffalo New York. Theodore Roosevelt took his place and made history in many ways. Theatre was an extremely energetic. Man Some say he had a photographic memory because he could do things like perfectly recite poems that he had read and not seen again for decades. He read books nearly every day. Some people saw him read two or three pages a minute. He was very proud of his speed reading skills but it wasn't just learning that he engaged in Roosevelt loved the outdoors. In fact as a president he set aside two hundred thirty million acres of land to protect and save so that Americans for many generations could enjoy these forests parks and Animal Sanctuaries Theodore love to spend time in nature himself. He loved to horseback ride and he was also an avid hunter in November of Nineteen. O Two just after his first full year as president. He made a hunting trip to Mississippi on invitation. From the governor of the state there were several other people in the party and before long the president was the only one who had not shot a bear. This was embarrassing for the governor. How could they leave? Teddy out right right right with the feodor so anyway. In an effort to guarantee success for the president's bear hunting trip the guides devised an unfortunate and unkind plan that involved tying a bear to a tree for Roosevelt to shoot when he discovered the creature in such a state. Roosevelt was disgusted and refuse to shoot. What could have been forgotten moment soon? Captured the American imagination and then gave birth to one of the most common items found in kids rooms. All around the world still today. A cartoonist was inspired by the story and sketched an image of Roosevelt refusing to shoot the bear the cartoon ran in the Washington Post which was a major newspaper in it immediately connected Roosevelt to bears in the minds of Americans probably most of whom never even realized that he had a pet bear in New York for a while. One American who saw this was a candy shop owner from Brooklyn New York named Morris Victim. It began with two soft cuddly stuffed toy bears that he and his wife Rose had made. He stuck those bears in the window of his candy shop and called them Teddy bears before long he spent all of his time making those and even started a toy company that would live on for decades. So whether you knew it or not. That teddy bear in your bedroom is named after a president who didn't even like being called Teddy.

How Did White House Press Briefings Go From Daily to Done?

How Did White House Press Briefings Go From Daily to Done?

"Brain. GRAINSTUFF Lauren Bogle bomb here in January of Twenty Twenty bestselling novelist Stephen King and Don winslow took to twitter to make a surprising pledge. They offered to donate two hundred thousand dollars to charity. If Stephanie Grisham the Press Secretary for President Donald Trump agreed to take questions from the full White House. Press Corps for one hour. You're in the White House. Press briefing room. The offer reportedly was rejected by Grisham. WHO's since taking the job in June of two thousand nineteen has yet to hold even one former former White House press briefing? Her views expressed an interview with these sinclair. Broadcast Group is that the briefings are unnecessary because reporters get opportunities to put questions to trump himself sometimes over the roar of the presidential helicopter on the White House lawn for the time being at least the trump administration has abandoned what had been in an important part of White House. Press Corps is routine dating back to the late eighteen hundreds before the official position of White House. Press Secretary even existed. That's when President William McKinley. Kenley set up a workspace in the White House for reporters and sent his first personal secretary. John Addison Porter to give the correspondence what the White House Historical Association notes. where I'm I more or less regular briefings? The White House press briefing gradually evolved into a formal event from the time of president. Herbert Hoover in the late nineteen twenties and early thirties. He's to Linden Johnson's tenure in the mid to late sixties White House press secretary's held twice a day briefing sessions in their own offices according to Martha Joint Kumar Book managing the president's message the White House Communications Operation Richard Nixon though no fan of the press still thought the briefings were important enough that he had a swimming pool torn out so that he could convert the space into a meeting room for briefings. That area is now known as the James S. Brady press briefing room in honor of president. Ronald Reagan's press secretary who was seriously wounded during the attempt. On Reagan's life in Nineteen eighty-one during Bill Clinton's time in the White House in the nineteen nineties. Press Secretary Mike. McCurry decided to allow the daily press briefings to be televised that practice continued until the trump white house began barring cameras from briefings in two thousand seventeen before discontinuing them altogether. Oh we spoke by email but former C. N. N. White House correspondent Dan Lowthian who spent five years covering the Bush and Obama administrations. He said I think the briefings were useful full for a number of reasons. First of all it was an opportunity to get the White House response or thinking on an issue on camera rather than a written statement it allowed us to gang up on them around a question they might have been trying to avoid showing them dodge. An answer is sometimes the news briefings also put statements on the record for later. Comparison finally finally every now and then there would be breaking news and as happened after Osama bin Laden was caught lots of great details even if some turned out not to be true. Lowthian Dan who went on to found little park media and to become a visiting scholar at the School of Journalism at Northeastern University recalls that the format for the briefings was fairly constant. He said there was a certain order to who got called on briefings always started with the Associated Press and ended with a thank you from the Associated Press once in a while the press secretary would mix it up a bit but it usually happened around the same time each day and questions from the first two rows came in order. We also spoke by email with Tom. Tom Jones a senior media writer for the POYNTER Institute. A journalism education organization. He said while it's true that the president and his representatives often make themselves available bowl in informal settings such as the White House lawn. It's not the same as press. Briefings the format of shouting out questions under the sound of a whirling helicopter is not conducive to asking complicated policy questions nor pertinent. Follow up questions. The frenzied free for all of these much too brief informal interviews make it much harder to get into the topics. What's that require nuance and specifics? It's so much easier for the president to brush aside or ignore questions. He doesn't like when he's walking along the White House grounds when he or one of his representatives representatives are standing behind a podium a controlled setting they must face the questions that require long substantive answers as opposed to the one or two short sentences that suffice in those informal formal settings let view essentially is shared by a group of thirteen former White House press secretary and Foreign Service and military officials who published an opinion in peace on. CNN's website in January of twenty twenty calling for trump to restore the regular briefings in their view. Having to prepare for briefings helps the government to run better letter. They wrote the sharing of information known. As official guidance among government officials and agencies helps ensure that an administration speaks with one voice telling one story however compelling it might be Lowthian also sees the apparent end the briefings as unfortunate. He said it's a valid criticism that some reporters others use briefings to showboat. However I think when covering the White House briefings aren't important function that allow the public and reporters to maintain daily connections? Sometimes it's routine information other times. An odd question from the back of the room can turn into the story of the day even so Lowthian says journalists who cover the the administration will find a way to get stories he said this new normal might be unfortunate but not paralyzing. Reporters are in the business of getting information whether it comes from the mouth of his spokesperson or sources all across the beltway.

"Interested in it talking about it with Brian Kilmeade. Welcome back. Everyone is Brian Kilmeade the Brian Kilmeade. Joe back with your calls in in twelve minutes. Fifteen minutes one eight six zero eight seven six six nine a great book is now out it's called accidental presence. It's by co-authored by Jared news, in-studio eight men who changed America. And judge. You just tell me you served on the Bush administration. And now you're back you writing history at the Pasha history. When I was a kid. My parents bought me a children's book called the buck stops here. And they wanted to turn into a precocious kid, and they didn't realize they were going to have to have eight conversations with me about death in office, and it was bad enough that it didn't know John Tyler was and who William McKinley was, but you know, most people know about making Kennedy, but they don't realize eight presidents died in office qualify, some ABI an accident. So to me and accidental president is when you know history is changed the beat of a heart win a man who's not the voter's choice and wasn't the first bottom. The ticket ends up being thrust into the pinnacle of power because the bullet of an assassin or an illness. You open up the book talking about how? Useless John Adams feels as vice president. He's the people are nice to me. But I got nothing to do is. Sometimes people throw this kind of useless position was the first time it became clear that the vice president matter. Well, the first time it'd be becomes clear. The vice president matters is when William Henry Harrison dies after just thirty days in office in eighteen forty one and John Tyler who was just thrown on the ticket as vice president to win Virginia, which they law to begin to tippecanoe and Tyler to the second half of the catchy slogan. When she is remembered for service Tyler basically after the inauguration skips town Virginia where he plans to spend four years because the vice president is relevant, and so he bolts back to Washington because he knows that he's gonna have to fight with the cabinet. He inherits and congress who insists that he's an acting president not the president did not know that research eighteen twelve was a fearless. General that killed the comes right minute. Harrison is the most famous wig in the country at the time. And so it was devastating to the whig agenda when he dies in office because they end up John Tyler who's basically a democrat the wigs. Kick him out of the party. He becomes a president without a party. And while people like to suggest that the president today Radic and impulsive, nobody was more radical impulsive, and John Tyler who had a moment of political rage decides to covertly annex, Texas. Worked so Jarrod. Let's move on. And talk about probably the worst accident will president. So anyone that thinks the vice president doesn't matter need not look any further than what happened when the bullet of John Wilkes booth robs us of ABRAHAM LINCOLN and his agenda for reconstruction. We end up with Andrew Johnson the last president to own slaves. A man who was born a racist Ida racist who was thrown on the ticket because he was a war democrat from a border state, and he ends up resurrecting almost every old vestige of the confederacy and set civil rights back one hundred plus years gives us the black codes, which pave the way for the Jim crow laws humidity, peach de he was drunk on top of being a racist. One of my favorite stories. I write about in the accidental presidents is Andrew Johnson, delivering his vice presidential oath of office completely inebriated. It was supposed to last a minute. It was a seventeen minute diatribe that ends with him slobbering all over the bible Lincoln's head buried in his hands. He forgets the name of the secretary of war embarrassingly to ask. Somebody in the middle of the speech and everybody is just mortified countries come into port. The country is in its, you know, the countries coming apart. You know, the the civil war is going to be over within six weeks. There's no plan for reconstruction with the mazing Lincoln shot on April fourteenth, eighteen sixty five. And everybody knows he's going to die within less than a day. So Andrew Johnson the first time the cabinet sees him after his drunken display as vice president is at Lincoln's bedside and everybody knows that he's basically about to become president. And he's asked to leave because he's making Mary Todd Lincoln uncomfortable. Unbelievable. So that's all in your book accident presidents, the one that you said would have been president without being vice president teddy Roosevelt thought he was on his pathway governor police Commissioner and a guy that's really stood out. Teddy Roosevelt is the only one of the eight accidental presidents who likely would eventually been president. He becomes the youngest president in history after leeann Shaw goes murders William McKinley in September of nineteen ninety one and teddy Roosevelt larger than life figure and he could hardly hide his enthusiasm. About the idea that he was about to become president. But at the same time, he was mortified this wasn't supposed to be how it happened. So he becomes obsessed with winning the presidency in his own, right? And in nineteen Eighty-four becomes the first accidental. President to no longer be an accident. He was almost killed himself. He decides he goes far he's done. He decides his handpicked successor his protege. President Taft has not done the things he was supposed to do. He's gonna run against him. And then he almost gets killed. That's correct. So what I write about in. The book is a moment in nineteen twelve when teddy Roosevelt's running the third third party bull moose party. And he's giving a speech and an assassin fires. A bullet at him the bullet penetrates a forty page speech that we should be thankful. The teddy Roosevelt was verbose as he was penetrates the speech hits his case ends up penetrating his skin now. Teddy Roosevelt addition to being a polymath was an expert taxidermist opens his shirt looks at his wound declares that. He's an expert taxidermist needs evaluated. He can survive in our which means he gives the speech for forty five minutes. And then. Colts the hospital, and he ends up surviving. He ends up winning. He does not end up winning. But he successfully swertz his disappointed successors chance of being president. So as we move our way through the list, the one that you really impressed with you. So as a gift is Harry Truman, so Harry Truman's, the most unexpected in there for the most successful of eight accidental president he's thrown onto the ticket in nineteen forty four because everybody knows FDR a dying man, and the party bosses can't fathom the idea of an ultra liberal like Henry Wallace and Soviet sympathizer ending up as president. So they throw Truman on the ticket as the anti Wallis candidate in his eighty two days as vice president. He only meets FDR twice doesn't get a single intelligence briefing isn't briefed on the Manhattan project and after dies on April twelfth nineteen Forty-five shrimp estimate. Some of the most seminal decisions in the history of the Republic, and here is one of them..

This is moment. Number eight. I am a tariff man when people are countries come in and raid, the great wealth of our nation. I want them to pay for the privilege of doing. So it will always be the best way to max out our economic power. We are right now taking in billions and tariffs make America. Rich again, often the things the president says about this economy or just repetitions of his previous exaggerations untruths. That's what's going on here. In part. We the government are taking in billions of dollars in tariffs. As I said earlier, what's not said by the president is that those billions are being paid by American consumers, the real grabber in this one though was the first line. I am a tariff man, it's a paraphrase from. William McKinley a hundred and twenty years ago, the presidential campaign of eighteen ninety six McKinley said I am a tariff man standing on a tariff platform McKinley wins that election, and then he wins again in one thousand nine hundred but in September of nineteen o one in his very last speech in Buffalo New York the day before he's assassinated McKinley shows he's had a change of heart commercial wars are unprofitable. He says a policy of goodwill and friendly trade relations will prevent reprisals. And yes, I was a history major. This final note on the way out today in which Valentine's Day.

"And politics begins to dominate the United States political system in the gilded age in the late nineteenth century of which I wrote give you one example, William Jennings. Bryan is the democratic candidate nineteen Ninety-six. He runs on a populist platform of supporting workers and farmers. He runs on a platform of increasing the money supply to relieve debt on the farmers. He gives somewhere in the vicinity of three four hundred speeches while he rides the rails the first ever time that a politician or presidential candidate rode the rails across the country giving speeches William McKinley. His opponent gives no speeches and wins in a landslide. Okay. What do we know about the two different parties William Jennings? Bryan raises the equivalent today of approximately three to four hundred thousand. Thousand dollars in campaign contributions. Okay. In today's dollars. That's it. William McKinley with his corporate backers and the Republican party raised somewhere in the vicinity of two billion dollars in today's dollars. So what we're seeing is money in politics and wealth inequality and that exists in this era as much as it did in the late nineteenth century. We have to learn from our past final point on this coming out this Saturday. We'll be my next piece which is on the foreign policy of the progressive era. And the other thing that that era has in common with today is that eighteen ninety eight is the moment when Americans began seizing overseas colonies expanding outside of the continent and becoming imperialists. And I would argue that today we are neo-imperialist doing much the same thing. Yeah. You know, your your takeaways and mine are so similar in so many ways that I really appreciate perspective on it. And I'm looking forward to your next piece in the one after that. Because a lot of progressives today. Finally, remember teddy ROY. Roosevelt has president and for his progressive economic policies as do I in many ways, but progressives perhaps this is tied into the political problem. We were talking about at the start progresses. Do tend to forget that. He was an extremely unless my memory fails me completely and extremely warlike and aggressive president very much a part of this imperialist strategy at the same time that he was a more progressive at at home than than his predecessors fair summary. Thank absolutely fair summary. Teddy Roosevelt is a is a is a warmonger understanding of him. His trust Austin is admirable at times. But one must remember this is a man who called the day of his charge, San Juan hill as a Colonel in charge of the first US, calorie volunteer regiment, he referred to that as the greatest day of his life. He shot a Spanish soldier who was running away in the back because he wanted so dearly to say that he killed someone. And he said that was the greatest day of his life. He yelled at the height of the charge Godfrey. What fun? He said. So yes, this was a warmonger. This was an imperialist. This is a man who wanted to build an American empire, and we have to hold that at the same time balanced with his trust busting and more progressive policies domestically yet. I think I my closing aditorial comment would be that we have to vow to be just as a progressive if that's the right word or lightened and our foreign policy as we are in our domestic policy, which would separate dramatically from someone like Theodore Roosevelt sell. Unfortunately, we're going to have to leave it there. But as always major, Danny shirts in a speaking on behalf of yourself, not the United States military. As always thanks for the great writing. And as always surprising to speak with you. Thank you all keep it up for the listeners. Keep watching keep watching the Google. I'll have the pieces out two to three columns a week.
