Org to give today a copper box was recently removed from the century-old amphitheater. At Arlington National Cemetery. It had been sealed in Nineteen fifteen among its contents were assigned photo of president. Woodrow Wilson Copies of Washington's four newspapers. A tiny American flag a Washington city directory and the Bible wrapped in Brown paper and tied up in a red string. The time capsule officially called a memorabilia. Box had been placed in the original cornerstone for the amphitheater fifteen. The structure was not completed for five years when the cemetery celebrated the Empha- theaters centennial. The box was opened cemetery. Command historian. Steve. Carney noted that the box is a chance to reflect on. What was the world? Like in Nineteen fifteen. He noted within three years. The United States is a completely different place. We've seen the horrors of World War. One and we're in the midst of the Spanish Influenza. What a different place. And what a different memorabilia. Box that would have been if it was placed in nineteen twenty. A surprise came when the capsule was removed and strange container was found sitting next to it in the nineteen nineties when the capsule was moved to its present location. There was some extra space beside it. Workers took the opportunity to add many time capsule of their own. They gathered their business cards and wrote some notes. Then they look for a container. What they found was an empty peter pan peanut butter jar conservator. Caitlyn Smith said it was sort of a rush job. But you can understand the impulse to add your name to history. More than five million cases of covid nineteen have now been recorded around the world according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. The global death toll stands at more than three hundred twenty nine thousand if someone had built a time capsule in the fall of twenty nineteen.

His died of Corona Virus Wilson. Roosevelt German began his service. Nineteen fifty seven and was promoted to Butler during the Kennedy Administration and more than one hundred thousand new covid nineteen cases were reported to the World Health Organization on Wednesday the most in one days since the pandemic began. We've focused this week and ways to love our neighbor during the pandemic by loving God with our hearts soul mind and strength when we love God with our soul emotionally. We are empowered to love him with our mind biblically and strength practically which leads us to practical ministry as we share his love with others. We'll close to day by focusing on loving God with all your Heart Heart Cardia in the Greek from which we get cardiology is found one hundred fifty seven times in the New Testament it refers not to a physical Oregon but to what one commentary calls the seat of understanding knowledge and will the decision for or against faith takes place in the heart ensured. We Love God with our heart when we choose to love him with our soul mind and strength and our neighbors as ourselves. We'll such a commitment to our Lord to end our neighbor. Make a difference our skeptical secularized culture. We've been here before. Marcus Aurelius was emperor of Rome. From eighty one sixty one to one eighty and one of the foremost thinkers of his time and yet because he adopted a STOIC worldview rather than the Christian faith he wrote in his meditations that all is opinion he was convinced that life is a warfare and stranger's sojourn and after fame is oblivion as a result. He view death as nothing else than a dissolution of the elements of which every living thing is compounded. This prospect was not fearsome to him if there is no harm to the elements themselves in continually changing into another. Why should a man have any apprehension about the change in disillusion of all the elements for it is according to nature and nothing is evil? Which is according to nature. Marcus Aurelius had no objective. Truth to trust and no afterlife to anticipate nor was he afraid of judgment to come. What he did not know. Was that the Christian faith and it's answers to such deceptions would soon dominate. The Empire. He led across the centuries since it has led billions of people to the one who is the way and the truth and the life. Unfortunately what Marcus Aurelius believed is what so many people believe. Today our best witness to them is to love them in a way they cannot experience except through the body of Christ to love them so holistically and persuasively we must love our Lord with our strength which requires loving him with our mind which requires loving him with our soul which requires loving him with our heart. Will you choose today to make these commitments? The foundational priorities of your life. Ravi Zacharias noted we are living in a generation listens with its eyes and thinks with its feelings.

Trump claims he will override the governors to reopen churches despite not having that power
"Good evening from New York. I'm Chris as we're starting a little early tonight as part of our Special Memorial Day weekend coverage a Senate already enjoying its holiday weekend. A lot of you probably have started as well. Senate Majority Leader Mitch. Mcconnell the Senate in recess for the week we'll be back in June they have not taken up the house. Bill to provide additional corona virus relief and rescue states from the crushing budgetary constraints are now facing seems as though the president and leader. Mcconnell already realized they are on the wrong side of the politics on this very pressing issue. Because you might remember. It was only one week ago. That trump dismissed the house. Democrats latest rescue bill out of hand. You've read stimulus should move forward. There's been some Republicans suggest that I don't know it depends it. Certainly not the package today but Sir as they say. Delay Delay Debt Arrive. Mcconnell other congressional Republicans are making noises about how the national debt and deficit was becoming a problem. And we're not going to do anything we got to see what happens. We're good for now. You guys are on your own good out there. We can already see the cracks forming those positions people like Republican Senator Cory Gardner of Colorado. Who's facing an uphill battle to hold onto his seat saying it is quote unfathomable true but the Senate just take a vacation without helping people. It also does seem a bit crazy to say. Hey we're GONNA cut off your extra unemployment benefits in the midst of the pandemic in the middle of the summer of an election year. But that was the plan I mean. That's been the plan that Mitch. Mcconnell Republicans committed to just two days ago so Republicans in swing states. Senators Cory Gardner Arizona's Martha mcsally. Who are not polling very well are starting to look more and more like burnt toast with each passing day. Rather we're looking at the same news. We are which is that. Every single senator has a governor whose budget is going to be a disaster and so after saying no more we already spent too much sure enough. Republicans have already conceded. The next rescue bill is not too far off just took a week and right now keep in mind. Only thirty. Nine percent of Americans approve of the president's handling of the crisis months now president trump has tried to blame the governor's for the bad stuff and then he tried to get praised or any of the good stuff. He wants people to direct their anger about the bad things about the pandemic which are legion to their governor and their gratitude towards anything. They're happy about towards him and what he's managed to achieve is literally the opposite with the exception of governor. Brian Kemp of Georgia. Every governor in the country is pulling better than trump. Today the president claimed he would override the governor's to open churches this weekend. Of course he doesn't have the authority to do that is just trash talk. Which is what he does. It's just an empty threat joining me. Now for more on what we heard from President as Carolina. Nbc News Natural Political Reporter. Carol today it just been in line with this whole thing where it really does. Seem like they've wanted to be on both sides of federalism and both sides responsibility. Which is we're backstop. We're not shipping clerk. Governors are responsible for dealing with the crisis. But we'll come in when we feel like it's politically advantageous for us to do so. Yes this is become a key. Focus for the president this idea of opening up churches as the country reopened. Because it's politically a p feels a very good issue for him. It's very important to a key. Constituency jellicoe voters and so we saw the backdrop today says you know is that the CDC put out guidelines to literally no fanfare. The White House didn't embrace them. No one pointed it out for schools restaurants daycare centers. Things like that earlier this week. They did not put out guidelines for places of worship. The White House took that over official telling me that they felt like the CDC guidelines were to Drako Nghien and too restrictive and became White House. Project the president was speaking with pastors. He held a big conference call yesterday with over thousand pastors across the world to talk about this and so then they were coming up with these guidelines that the president decided today where whereas he hasn't put his really embrace any of these publicly that he was going to step out publicly and talk about this and throw down a gauntlet and make it a political issue. Criticizing Democratic Governors of not opening of bars but not opening churches. And things like that. And so you're GonNa see this issue really stick around the big question is what authority does he have. Tell governors what to do. All of a sudden wants to say that he's going to step in and do this. Well there's also the question about safety right. I mean the CDC published this report about an Arkansas Church that was super spreading event. Two of the major biggest super spreading events we have in the world one South Korea when France were mass church services. So there's it's not like you know there's there's things like beaches and parks where there's been some debate and we know the more data comes in. We have a better picture of outdoor being probably lower risk than indoor but church services are in that category. Where you really gotta think that through. Yes and we heard a little mixed messaging from the White House earlier today at the press briefing. The president was saying churches should open. They should open now. Everybody should do it. And then you heard Dr Deborah burks. Who's a senior official on on? His Corona virus taskforce later. Say Look if you know. There's a lot of cases in your area. Maybe wait a week or and so it's it's gotta witches it but the President and general genuinely people are asking which is it. Should we open or should we not in their argument? The Press Secretary Kelly mckinney said you know follow guidelines and the guidelines are very loose like. I said the White House did not want to be too prescriptive when they were outlining these. So things like social distancing that can be difficult some churches. Have you know limit. The number of people that are there are some churches are thousands of people there. They're very large Things like you know don't have a choir or don't have congregation singing or recommending that and they're very clear there. They're very adamant that these recommendations these are not necessarily things that they're trying to tell people to do and that leaves open a whole lot of space for people to do what they WANNA do. Final question for you quickly. Another study on hydroxy cleric in the president has touted it. He said he's taking itself they have. He's been at that podium dozens of times I say take take it. What do you have to lose? Take it this one showing that it's linked to increased risk of death in corona virus patients. This is a controlled. Study anything from the White House about the fact that maybe they've been increasing people's risk in touting drug based spoke with a White House official about this earlier and their argument was that the study was done on on individuals who had corona virus and the president was taking it as a preventative measure. So that's That's their argument and they were pushed back little bit without any detail on the way. This study was conducted. Yes they've every study that's found negatively. They found some very precise methodological arguments against but they think that everyone should be taken carol-lee. Thank you so much. Have a great week you you to join me now for more. What we can expect from the next rescue built Cory Booker Democrat of New Jersey? Senator I let me start asking you if you're read on what's happened in the last week week. And a half in terms of the politics and the discussion over another piece of rescue legislation is the same read. I have which is sort of moved and Democrats favor in the last week. I I don't WanNa Catheters Democrats favor. Republicans favor. This is America's favorite. Because you actually have to run things mayors of Cities Governors of states. Remember the DJ. Excuse me the overall governors association has said that they all want a half a trillion dollars in A. I had bipartisan. Press conference with mayors from both parties talking about wanting action for small businesses that they see in crisis so America Republicans Democrats Independents All. Think that chairman of the Fed. Everybody thinks that we should be going to work right now and getting help for the areas. It's still needed in our nation except for scenes Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump Bay seemed to be not concerned. Because it's not about them but they don't seem to be concerned or connected to the real suffering and challenges that are going on in our country but it does seem like were closer to some kind of legislation now than we were a a week ago. Whether it's you know I I would agree with you. Selves into substantively. It is needed. I would absolutely agree that the gap between the the sort of scope economic misery and what and what Washington is done remains large but McConnell a week and a half ago and corn and all leadership or like. You guys go kick rocks now. It's like there's going to be another bill but this is almost like that. We still have a fire in the house. We put some water on it and they want to stand back and see how it works. Well the longer they wait the worst. It's going to get for our businesses. The worst is going to get hospitals. That are at risk of closing right now. the more. It's GonNa hurt for literally we've already seen tens and tens of thousands of public workers being laid off that we need in this pandemic so I agree with you. We are making progress. I see the pressure building. I know that something is going to get done. But the problem is we are on recess. Mcconnell dragged us back in the first hearing I sat in was to fill a judge seat for a right wing judges protege for a vacancy. That's not even open until September and yet now we're leaving Washington when we should be in Washington getting things done. There are a host of bipartisan bills. There's one from I'm on with with with a two Republicans in my senior senators bill to get aid to states. I've got a bill with a Montana Republican in order to get aid to the smallest small businesses. A lot of my colleagues or on bipartisan projects. And you named some of my Republican colleagues. Who really need no that? They need to get something done for their states so again. There's no reason we should be on break right now because you know who is not taking a break. Firefighters were in danger being laid off police officers danger being laid off people who are on the front lines today. We're in danger of being facing this. Virus ravages so it's frustrating. You talked about some of your bipartisan legislation. I know you've been working very actively. There's a bunch of bills you're on. There's what I wanted to ask you about. That caught my eye which is like a four thousand dollar skills training credit to workers displaced by the coronavirus. And I don't necessarily think it's bad to good people that but but my my question he was this. I mean I remember during the in the aftermath. The Great Recession. There was a lot of talk about skills mismatch. There were sort of this idea that the problem with enduring unemployment was at American workers weren't trained up enough. They didn't have enough skills over time that proved to be wrong right. It was just a macroeconomic phenomenon. I worry a little bit about this economic recession. That CONVERSATION COMING BACK. When we know that we have three point five percent employment just a few months before the pandemic. It seems like that's really the issue here right. Not American skills level. I want to pluck one thing out to make it of emblem of what the totality of the efforts were my democratic caucuses. When we talk we all know that there's businesses restaurants all the way to retail that they are the job creators that they're the ones that we need to get going and we need to get support to them. So you're right. The bigger economic picture has got to be about a roller economy. I will make this will Presi with this though as you think about it my first piece of legislation as the United States. Senator was a bipartisan apprenticeship. Bill because if you look at companies like Germany countries like Germany and Switzerland you lose your job in one of those countries You can learn and earn at the same time you don't have a fall of your salary level apprenticeship program connected to employers into jobs. We have to start reimagining. What we I think. College is a wonderful thing. Most Americans don't graduate from college. We put so much of our money into doing that. I'm a mole for a debt free college and the like but want to see us creating a national system of of skills training in combination with creating more skills job. Because you know what we right now have a national security problem with our supply chain bonner abilities the fact that we don't make swabs in this country like we should. We have to rely on China for penicillin we crisis with them. We could be in real trouble. We need to bring back. American manufacturing on things that are critical to our well-being that our national security issues. And make sure that those manufacturing jobs which are now very high school jobs to be a machinist and others are middle-class. Jobs that you earn a lot of really good salary but need specialized training. We should really ramp up that kind of an apprenticeship programs in our country. What is how are you thinking about this recovery? You modeling it yourself. Because there's a real debate happening in economic circles both among economists and among financial analysts on Wall Street and a lot of places about what does this look like? Like you know the shelter in place and this massive decline. In People's mobility economic activities created this seismic wave of economic. Pain does come back quickly. Is it like a beach town coming back from its December recession. When it's July right people come back. All the jobs are there. The businesses are there or is it something more like the aftermath of the great recession. How are you thinking about it? Well I'm going to be honest. I think the first thing we there was approach with humility. We don't know let's just say that and so we don't know what we should be doing is not just hoping for the best hope is not a plan. We and I learned early in my life. As a mayor it is better to be prepared for crisis avalon and have a crisis and not be prepared and so what. We should've approved the first. Bill launches cash payments that are triggered if the economy hasn't recovered. We should've approved for the first bill longer. Terms for the PGA payment. So Connie doesn't recover. It triggers a different loan terms or grant terms. There are things. We repairing for the resiliency. If this is bad or the worst case scenario is we start getting back to normal of which it seems like people are eager to do a God bless us but then if we have a second wave which is even worse than the first one like we did in one thousand nine hundred nine so this time to have strategic planning. But we've got this president who doesn't want authority who doesn't want to lead doesn't want to give comprehensive guidance tells C. C. go jumping a river. The only time he wants to give guidance is when it's impulsive. Where he's trying to rescue his whole number calling poll numbers and appeal to those of us faith and that this what he's doing right now is reckless. It is dismissive. It's not calling us to a national sense of common purpose. I don't care if you're Republican or Democrat. I've seen leaders from both parties in times of crisis. Find a way to cop call to lead first of all in call there common spirit and this guy has been. I mean literally every day to me. He's tearing our country apart undermining. What is our our our health interests Not to mention that he doesn't have a plan for economic recovery. He doesn't have a plan off for resilience. He doesn't have a plan for the future except for not to care about the people suffering but only care about himself. Senator Cory Booker New Jersey. I hope you get some time in the beautiful weather this weekend. Maybe can find a service either on the internet or maybe outside that safely space. But she's like probably the best move for these days. Thanks a lot senator. Thank you. I'm GonNa keep you in prayer this weekend and thank you. I and I know you'll be recognizing all those who sacrifice so that we can enjoy the country we have and remembering Memorial Day's all that may well coming up on our super size edition of all and now nearly two months of physical distancing is affecting all of our mental health and unseen told the virus after this lockdown across the country have been saving lives. But they've come with their own health cost. We should be clear about this. Right for instance Washington Post Post points out that many doctors say dependent has produced a silent sub epidemic of people who need care at hospitals. But they're not come in and then there. Real effects lockdown has been having on people's mental health. There's been a documented increase in domestic violence. People been drinking more alcohol which is perhaps not that surprising. We already know that being alone is very very denture. Detrimental generally to people's mental health and add to that the incredible disruption that everyone's going through from financial crisis and unemployment to grieving the loss of loved ones and not being able to come together. Memorialize them and then having to internalize all the stress of the disruption all that adds up to a very difficult time for people and their mental health. Right now here to talk about what can be done as Bill Smith. He's founder of a new organization called inseparable. Which is dedicated to mental health advocacy? Bill I'm curious what your view is and what your organization has seen and heard about where folks are in terms of their mental health during this crisis. Thank you so much for having me Chris. And indeed we have a crisis within a crisis right now in our country We had a mental health crisis before the pandemic started. We had dramatic increases in depths of despair. We had significant numbers of Americans saying that they were having trouble with mental help. And that's only escalated in this crisis until we started inseparable based on a pretty simple premise health. Health and the health of our minds can't be separated from the health of our bodies And we've been taking our mental health policy as too much of an afterthought in this country and now we're seeing the effects of that. Yeah it's striking what you just said. I mean one of the sort of we've covered this on the show and also on my podcast. Wise is happening. One of the most striking aspects of American life over the past two years and past three years was even at a time of good macroeconomic growth low unemployment and relatively high annual growth and expanding economy. You actually saw American average. Life expectancy declining for the first time since basically warriors and that was largely driven by things like substance substance abuse overdose and suicide so even in the best of times. America has had recently quite a really acute problem in addressing people's mental health needs. That's right increase in the system. It's not been doing a good enough job of taking care of those people. Mental healthcare should not be a luxury in this country. But for many it is if you think about it if you have a heart attack or a broken arm. We don't say we'll get back to you in three to four weeks later. But that's what happens all the time to people in this country around mental health care and worse and so that's what we just think. We need to do much better. That's why we formed. Inseparable is to create a pressure needed on our political system to demand better mental health policy that allows us to take care of each other better. I was thinking about the sort of mental health challenges people face right now in the midst of pandemic which I think have expanded many ways. And there's an analog I think to the way that we think about the pandemic. Which is there. Were these projections of what would happen if we did nothing right. If there's no interventions maybe a million people would lose their lives if we do things like shelter in place. Reduce Mobility and physically distance. We can bring that number down. There's something similar right now with mental health. It doesn't have to be the case that we see an enormous wave of suicides or overdoses or things like that in the wake of this. If there are sufficient intervention public health standpoint to give people the treatment they need right now as we sort of reopen the economy. Keep our eyes on that as well. That's exactly right. Chris and the thing about projections is they don't have to become a reality. We have power to do something about that if we start taking mental health care policy Seriously in this country. And that's what we're advocating for a Bill Smith you're one of the CO founders of Inseparable Organization that I think is going to have its work cut out for the be really really important going on a thank you so much for having some time with us tonight terrific. Thank you so much Adamy Chris. All right It's a strange night. We started half an hour early. It's the Friday before Memorial Day weekend but we will be back with a full hour of all in right after this. Hey It's Chris. As this week on my podcast wise is happening. I'll be talking with New York Times Education reporter Dana Goldstein. About what it means for country when fifty five million children home from school. We started looking into this at times. Right off the Bat. It became clear that in some cities like Cleveland. Ohio like Los Angeles. There was about fifteen to twenty percent of kids that were lost to schools. And what I mean by that is. It's not just that they were signing on to these video chats with teachers or lessons and not submitting work. They were actually not in contacted all so. The teachers and the administrators sometimes social workers or bilingual support staff. That can speak that families home. Language are trying to reach out and they cannot find where these kids are. That's this week on. Why is this happening? Search for wise is happening wherever you're listening right now and subscribe. Hey everyone it's mainly MSNBC correspondent and host of the podcast into America in our latest episode. I joined forces with NBC News. Political reporter alley tally to find out how a sexual assault allegation against. Joe Biden is shaping his bid for president. It's the first presidential election since the METOO movement gained momentum in two thousand seventeen with this allegation hurt. Biden's chances with women voters this November search for into America wherever you listening right now and subscribe on all land morning in America is Memorial Day weekend as we approached unimaginable milestone. One hundred thousand people lost. How can we take the time to remember? The fallen. Paul farmer will join me then. What to expect on this first big nationwide test a reopening across the country for the long weekend plus a report from country running the trump playbook to fight corona virus with disastrous results. Bill neely joins us from Brazil. And you just hate to see it. The president turning on his house cable channel as a trump T- poll shows of losing Joe Biden across the board. All in starts right now. Good evening from New York. I'm Chris Hayes as we prepare to observe Memorial Day and pay tribute to the American servicemen and servicewomen who've died for our country and including recently the wars that we are still fighting to this day. We also likely to cross the threshold of one. Hundred thousand documented deaths from corona virus. Here in the United States we have by far the highest documented death toll in the entire world. Us fatalities make up a little under a third of the global fatalities and we are almost certainly under counting those numbers. The president is decided for the first time as far as we can tell to show in any small way some small marking the morning and the grief of this nation by ordering flags to fly at half-staff starting today through sunset on Sunday lives will be lowered again on Monday for Memorial Day. What's so striking about? This gesture to me is how absent. It's been how utterly absent for the past. Twelve weeks passed since we first got news the first. Us death often when president people. We've lost the coronavirus. He sounds like this can become very good at this when you look at. What's happening when you look at the numbers coming down? A lot of states are in really great shape. I think we've done a great job as you know. Minimal numbers were minimal number. One hundred thousand people minimal numbers. We're going to be a hundred thousand people and we're going to be hopefully far below that are death. Totals are numbers per million. People are really very very strong. We're very proud of the job. We've done our numbers. People are very very strong just to be clear here when he says numbers when he says our numbers what he means deaths. It's talking about. Deaths were fellow. Americans you saying very strong on but I have to admit I think there's some part of me that's gotten a little numb to actually processing all has started to fill impossible in the early days of the pandemic it feels like a lifetime ago right when shelter in place order started the grief felt palpable and overwhelming people. I knew getting sick very sick. People were working yards people. I knew were losing loved. Ones early in the lockdown. I lost a dear beloved uncle myself not to Corona Virus. But losing someone in this weird situation where you cannot get together to mourn collectively are properly memorialize or or hug. Your loved ones was awful and kind of overwhelming. There's been very ghastly cynical. Play SORTA bet made by certain elements in our politics. People will just get over it. We'll get numb do it. So every day ticks by with just a unfathomable number of deaths yesterday was over. Thirteen hundred get lulled into this perverse thinking. Well that's better than over fifteen hundred a few days ago coming down. The trend is in the right direction. That's still a nine eleven in this country every two days it's still oceans and oceans of grief and loss and memory and ache and pain and trauma. It is still an untenable number of stories. We've tried to take a little time every week. To tell a few of those stories just to remind us all about the real actual flesh and blood human toll. What's happening by Dr James Charlie Mahoney? He's a pulmonologist at a university hospital. Brooklyn a pillar of that hospital system and Dr Mojo News Plano retire but when the pandemic it he decided to keep working to help treat those in need. The fellow doctor described it. He was handling patients and codes every five to ten minutes. He was doing everything he could. Another colleague called Dr Mahoney One of our legends one of our giants his daughter. Stephanie described her dad's friendly talkative personality which made him a favorite among colleagues patients. They had to decide. I think what are the doors in his office saying leg a? Don't ask Dr Mahoney about the following topics or else you'll be in their doctor. Who Died April twenty-seventh of the coronavirus? The sixty two peggy to BBC was a social worker from nearly thirty years. She arrived in New York City. Nine hundred and exchange. Nigeria devoted her life to helping others apparently describes her as determined to stand on her own. Even she fell into homelessness in recent years after losing her longtime partner fire. She doubted the virus late last month. She was fifty nine years old. Percents says she is heartbroken. The Peggy died a very lonely death. Just wants her to be remembered. Wilson Roosevelt German. Now you may have heard of him. He was one of the longest serving employees of the White House. He started his career in one thousand. Nine hundred fifty seven if you can believe it as a cleaner during the Eisenhower Administration promoted to Butler during the Kennedy Presidency and retired as an elevator operator for President Obama. His granddaughter said he was proud to work for them so happy to see a person of color president. He never ever thought that in his time at the White House you would see something that according to his granddaughter. He'd no shoes as a child. In North Carolina in the thirties walked six miles. A school had dropped out of the age of twelve to work on a farm. What an astonishing. What a remarkable life. This man lip. What incredible history. He got to see up close and be a part of and he died last week. The virus at the age of ninety one. And that's a ripe old age. One of the facts about this virus is it really has disproportionately affected the elderly eighty percent of deaths in the. Us have been among people sixty five and older in most states at least a third of the deaths of and people in long term care facilities and at the edges of our discourse and sometimes creeping away from the edges and towards the White House. Is this idea. It's not often said but it's there that yes it's bad but mostly it's killing the old and the sick and poor. Just think about that for a second. What kind of government? What kind of society? What kind of people says well? It's mostly killing the old and the immune compromised and the people have to work next to each other in slaughterhouses or drive buses and subways. So really when you think about it I mean really really think about it. The risk to everyone else's pretty low George interviewed by The Washington. Post said it loud and clear quote when you start seeing where the cases are coming from the demographics worried pandemic is a challenge and a test of our federal government and local governments. The federal government has thus far failed us but is also a challenge for us for our society about what we value and who Evalu- now we express that we are looking out for each other and so on this Memorial Day as we pay tribute to those we've lost as members of our armed forces through the years there also some things we can do things. We can demand of our government so that we honor the lives of those also lost to this pandemic presents going to fly the flags at half staff for three days in memory. Almost one hundred thousand Americans. We lost the virus three days. And then we move on. I guess we are living through an American catastrophe. More people will die so. Let's continue to remember them and let's help those who are trying to mourn. Their dead in the midst of stork unemployment the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression the president of the United States can authorize fema to release money to pay for funeral costs for those who can't afford it to help people we have done it in the past but the President United States has not released those funds. So why not help? Americans buried their loved ones with dignity and grace. They're not hard things to do. It is not too much to ask. Just because our president has failed us does not mean that we have to fail does not mean that we cannot demand more. I'm joined now by a world. Famous Doctor Public L. Official Paul Farmer. Our medical school is a macarthur fellow and Co founder partners in health. He's worked all over the world in dozens of countries fighting all kinds of Fedex and I've been wanting to talk to him for a long time someone. I've admired for a very long time doctor. It's it's really good to have you here tonight. Thank you Chris. It's an honor to be here. I thought about you as we were working on this opening and composing it because you have seen the way that society's respond to infectious disease and plague an acute illness in all kinds of societies. You've worked in all kinds of places and I'm curious to hear you talk about how people do deal with morning and do deal with grief and do kind of find ways to collectively say that these lives have value meaning to us. Will you know I've never had any experience over the last thirty five years of not seeing people you Not only their Kim and neighbors but To mark their passing the in in many ways taking care of the dead is the last act. Caregiving and you know that. That can complicate an epidemic. I mean certainly did with the Bulla Beginning in two thousand fourteen or maybe twenty thirteen in west Africa the this was a caregivers disease. Evola so people who fell sick tend to be professional caregivers of doctors nurses or family members and traditional healers. But they were the the chief victims if you will and And so of course. It was marking the importance of their loved. Ones lives that Put them at risk and Here with Covid Nineteen. We also see another caregivers disease. I wonder how you react to these arguments. We hear about these trade offs constantly. I mean at the most abstract level it is true right then when people say look we have A. We could have a speed limit of thirty miles per hour and we would lose. Less people to auto fatalities. But we don't do that. There is some there some trade off there are social trade offs. We make about risk and fatality. But there's something about the discussion in this context. It seems quite perverse to me. Even though there are trade offs in policy and I wonder how they strike your ears. Someone who's thought thought through how societies deal with the threat of of illness and pandemic we know the trade off that we keep hearing about news is between the economy and public health. Which again doesn't make any sense to me. These are two sides of the same coin In all of us want to get back to whatever normal may be but at the same time we know that The the the way that we can limit the damage prior to having effective therapeutic vaccine is social Social distancing the other measures that are being taken and unfortunately we took many of them. Too late But I think a lot of lives have been saved by not giving into this idea that it's a trade off between the economy and public health. Approach these are the same matters. Same social matters and so we should not pit them one against the other there has been something remarkable to me in many ways about the American response in this respect which is for all the failures I think the federal level and particularly at testing early on people really did do what they need to do. I mean if you if you said to someone in January three months from now the entire nation will not be in their homes and homes going their kids and you would have said that's is obviously crazy. There is part of this and I wonder if you could speak to a from your experience if people do step up and do remarkable things when faced with the threat of this magnitude well. I'm on one of those people Chris who hope I hope I didn't say too often but I the last place that I win in As the epidemic or pandemic was being born as a pandemic were being recognized. Pandemic was Rwanda and I was there in February And I was amazed as I often am their level of organization and their commitment to stopping this epidemic. But you know a couple of people ask me. What do you think you know? Would the you know? What about in the United States will people like here? Social distancing regimes disappear into their homes. And I'm not sure I don't think I got it right I've been very impressed by the degree to which have been willing to abide by a series of Strictures that they've never seen before I may. None of us have seen this before. I've been doing this work for over thirty years and I've never seen anything like this in my life Whether thinking about Ebola Zeka cholera AIDS drug resistant. Tibur closest never seen anything like it. And I've been impressed by the extent to which the American people have been willing to make extreme sacrifices in order to protect themselves in their loved. Ones Dr Paul Farmer Co Founder Partners in health one of the great sort of public health Voices of our time our personal hero of mine. It's really an honor to have you on the program. Thank you thank you Chris. I look forward to joining you again. All right still ahead. It is the first real big nationwide test. The RYOBI policies across America ready for Morally Weekend Caitlin rivers of Johns Hopkins on how she views the risk. This weekend maxed. All fifty states are in some of reopening as we head into this holiday weekend and people will be outside likely in large numbers beaches. Miami remain closed this weekend on places like Delray Beach. Florida New York Jersey shore Los Angeles beaches are cautiously opening along with parks throughout the country. We're seeing data from those early opening states at just because the doors get thrown open does not mean people are going to rush through that just by Georgia governor. Brian Capri opening his State. The April data from reservation site open table shows a visits to Georgia restaurants on Thursday. We're down eighty three percent from the same day last year. Just barely nudging up. Since the states reopening that makes a lot of sets seems like this from a socially distanced concert in Arkansas US show just how different reopened America will be some states and localities trying to get close to normals. We approach summer. But this weekend will be a big test for more on what this weekend's activities will mean for spread of Covid. I'm joined by someone who's been studying the implications of reopening policy. Caitlin rivers and epidemiologist Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. Someone that I have been really relying on throughout the pandemic. So Doc Dr. Let's start with your assessment of as we enter the kind of unofficial beginning of summer. People are going to be at the beach parks or having barbecues like where things stand what? You're optimistic about what you're cautious about. We have made a lot of progress in controlling the DEMOC but we are still registering around twenty thousand new cases a day. That's down from over thirty thousand cases a day so again we've made progress but the virus is still out there and so I do think we all need to continue to be vigilant. As we incorporate more activities in the community we still need to be careful about keeping our distance wearing masks washing hands and really protecting ourselves and our communities from infection. So here's my question for you so I think for a long time I have. I've I've heard from people that do your job and others right. The optimal situation here is a is a is a robust testing regimen and kind of contact tracing quarantine situation. You're trying to suppress virus. You're finding positive cases very quickly. And then you're dealing with them. Some places are going to have that other places are. So here's my question for you. Can the virus stay non explosive with an of one? Say Right every infected person giving to one person. If we just do physical distancing ban large gatherings we do kind of like the eighty percent solution can we basically can get something like normal or control under those terms. I think we can stay more or less where we are. I think what will happen in. Many communities is that people will keep doing what they should be doing to protect themselves in their communities. Again they will be doing that physical distancing and that hand hygiene and I think all of us taking those measures together will help to control the epidemic spread but it's not the ideal solution of using that diagnostic testing that contact tracing orange. Which would have allowed us a little more flexibility to relax a little bit. Unfortunately most communities have not fully transitioned to managing their outbreaks in that way. And so we do still Interesting there's sort of a kind of trade off there right like if you have the testing and contact tracing in place and you have a sort of robot suppression effort you really drive cases down the that matters for how people are assessing the risk and what they have to do in terms of how close they can get to each other and things like data is what you're saying it does. This virus likes to spread. And so I think until we have a vaccine. We will all still need to be thoughtful but places that have used diagnostic testing contact tracing in quarantine to control. The outbreak have done that very successfully the Singapore Germany South Korea. These countries have been very successful. And so I think they are in a better position than we are right now of still having to be very observant of these these measures so when you look at. I don't know if you can see a screen there. I don't know if you have what we call return in the business. But we're showing images of various beaches Various places where people are gathered mostly outside. But there's a lot of people and like they're kind of keeping space kind of not and as an epidemiologist like I don't know what to make of these. Some that thinks look people have been cooped up in their houses and outside is better than inside and there is some sense in which people are keeping distance of a lot of people not wearing masks. What's your assessment? Is you see these pictures coming in? That will be more and more. You know common of folks outdoors in fairly large numbers. I think there are ways to be outside safely and I think that's great for physical health in great mental health. The pictures of the beaches. I think are stretching it if you have that many people around you particularly if you're not wearing masks that's not going to be a safe as it could be but that doesn't mean that we can't spend time outside it just means we need to keep space. We need to avoid shared spaces like the bathrooms in the concession stands and just be thoughtful this virus in opportunity to spread. There was a a new study out from Imperial College London and they've done some disease modeling that has been quite famous or infamous. They produced a model. I think that convinced the Boris Johnson government in the UK that you can't just let her rip and immunity similarly think it helped the White House get its act together because you know projected these insane fatalities a million Americans dying. This is about. This is about this again this. Rt write this number of what is the if one person is giving it to one other person. That's equilibrium you. Stay around the same if it's less than that. You're suppressing if it's more than that you're growing this shows a lot of states very. It's very unlikely that they've suppressing. The virus is very unlikely that they have our T. below below zero states like Texas particularly Illinois. Is that a concern for you. It's a concern again. We have not fully transitioned to tightly managing outbreak. We still have twenty thousand cases a day. And so what we don't want to do is recreate the conditions that to us all staying home but those RT estimates as helpful as they are for understanding how we are progressing through our outright. Can Change at any minute so just because you're state looks like it's doing well right now. Does not mean that things could not change. What are the factors that are going to drive that I keep I keep wondering how much of this is policy? And how much is random? It's a little bit of both. I think that at this point it really needs to be about. Our collective behaviors at public health and public health policy is about creating the conditions that allow people to make those choices successfully to have the conditions to be Those choices and so again. I returned to the physical distancing the masks the hand hygiene. That is what we will all need to be doing in order to continue to control. This virus are Dr Caitlin rivers of Johns Hopkins University. Thank you so much for making time on this Friday night. Thanks for having coming up. There is one other country in the world using the Donald Trump playbook to respond to coronavirus next bill neely reports live from Paulo Brazil where the pandemic is getting out of control. Unfortunately there is a new worst response to Cova contender on the international seen. Probably seen those charts that track the cumulative growth coronavirus cases kind of metric of how well various countries have been handling the pandemic. How bad their outbreaks have been and the US? There you see the top It has been bad right. It's at the top but look what's coming up the hill. Brazil right now has one of the worst outbreaks in the world. Here's NBC News Chief. Global correspondent bill neely in Brazil. Brazil's frontline the casualties are mounting horrifically. Tens of thousands of new cases every day. This intensive care unit like most full frightening is how young people are here. Yeah it's incredible because most people is around forty years old forty four in their thirties. Yes yes the death toll is doubling so fast. They can't dig the graves quickly enough. These are the most vulnerable living in Latin America's most densely populated area there poverty. Turbo charging Brazil's death show people live here sometimes six or seven to a room. So social distancing is impossible and if they don't go to work they don't eat you're worried it's difficult and they're scared. Most people don't wear masks can get them. They've lost jobs so fed by aid groups. In the center of Brazil's richest city the newly jobless lineup for food. You might as well. Their president announced billions in aid. But he won't slow dance to wind and Brazil to get back to work at a soccer stadium. A new field hospital ready for the next wave. Brazil say experts still weeks away from its peak of infections and bill neely has been doing great reporting on this joins me live tonight from Sao Paulo. Builders a bunch of things your reporting that you show that people's poverty the fact that it's very difficult for them to to not work particularly if they have jobs that require their physical presence the fact that people living close together. But I wondered if you could talk a little bit about Bolsonaro approach to this which has been to say the least distinct other world leaders in terms have how he's approached it absolutely Chris completely defiant on repentant you may remember that when Brazil past five thousand deaths. He was asked about that and he said so what. What do you want me to do when it has ten thousand deaths? He took a trip on a jet ski and set to some people at a barbecue. Look seventy percent of the population are GonNa get this. There's nothing we can do now. It's passed twenty thousand. You might expect some presidents or heads of state to give a somber speech. No President Bolsonaro simply double done on these coal for the luck tons to end the. I'm Chris just within the last few minutes. Johns Hopkins University figures show that Brazil is not the second country and the world for cases again just a few minutes ago. Another one thousand deaths were announced today so there is a crisis here but as far as present in both scenarios concern. He simply looking the other way. You just mentioned something that I've been sort of following in this story. That had some echoes here in the US. Which is obviously. There's a sort of federal system there. There's their states and there's mayors that that are local elected leaders who have been attempting lockdowns have been very serious about trying to get people to stay indoors and fight the virus and Bolsonaro has been at war with them essentially. I mean there's sort of this battle happening between local leaders and the federal government. Is that right? The there is a battle probably. The two dozen state governors are actually united in opposition to the president so he is still calling for the lungs to doesn't believe in social distancing I spoke to the governor of Sao Paulo just a while ago and he said through our two viruses in Brazil once corona virus and the one is Bolsonaro virus so yes I mean there is a key. That's the problem for ordinary people in this city. There are twenty million people as doctor said to me today. Ten million people are in lockdown ten million on the streets so ten million people potentially are spreading the infection further and people genuinely don't know who to listen to some like the one you saw me. I mean people were saying to me. Look I need to go to work to think my family but if I go to work my family might not survive because I may bring the virus and so people are really caught and there's no leadership from the top or at least know United National Strategy whatsoever? Chris story out of it really is one of the most distressing stories In the world right. Now what's happening there and build? Neil you've been doing remarkable reporting on it. Thank you so much for joining US tonight. Still had if you were wondering why. The president spent another day rage. Tweeting a trump. Tv. The new polling may may give you a clue. We'll talk about what has been an eventful day for both candidates ahead today. We got news of the attorney for tar read. The former senator feed to Joe Biden has accused him of sexual assault has decided to no longer work with her as a client in a statement that lawyer said his decision quote is by no means a reflection on whether then senator Biden sexually assaulted misread. Joe Biden has vehemently denied tar retaliations as have others who worked for him during her tenure there decision by that attorney to part ways of comes amid a state of news reports that examined her credibility someone who's been reporting the details of the story very closely. Laura mcgann of Vox who has reported extensively on both workplace sexual harassment. And who has been talking to reporting on Tory story specifically for more than a year earlier this month she published a great piece entitled the Agonizing Story of Tara Rita more or maybe I would start with just asking you to sort of take us through your experience in talking because you you sort of document how her story has changed quite considerably over over the course of time that you've been in touch with her right about a year ago. I first oprah tire read. I was I'm thinking about it. April twenty eight and at the time. She called me with a really specific story. A story to me that seems quite credible. She said that she was working in. Joe Biden Office in Nineteen ninety-three and when she was in meetings and other situations in the office that Joe Biden would put his hand on her shoulders or her neck or her hair and it wasn't that these actions felt like sexual misconduct to her. She actually old me that she didn't think of it at section sexual conduct but it made her uncomfortable and so she complained up the chain and and when she did she started to sense retaliation in the office and being frozen out and she felt was eventually pushed out from her position in the office. So that's the story. I started looking into a year ago and now a year later. She's back and she has new allegation that you just alluded to that in addition to the experience in the office that she's now also saying that Joe Biden sexually assaulted her when she was working in the Senate to the key distinction. There is that there's one version of that story that might sound like she left out a detail and added a new one. A significant is it is stay in addition. I with extra key Piece of the story. I wanted to tell in the piece that I wrote that a year ago. She was quite adamant that she had not experienced any kind of sexual misconduct that her story was really about office harassment and retaliation by people who would rather push out a young woman for her position and have to say to a senator. Hey stop touching her shoulder. It makes her uncomfortable. Yeah and there's I mean there's some contemporaneous reporting or or at least there are some facts in the record that there are some means by which he left office not on the best of terms this particular allegation though is is very very different thing than what she told you and right now there's been a lot of reporting on her general credibility not even pertaining to this about her past about resume. I wonder how you're interpreting it seems to me. There's two issues here right. Which is like one is in any news story. Someone's credibility is relevant Germain particularly. If they're saying something that is incredibly important right. In allegation there is also sort of all of this awful history of women who have come forward with allegations being essentially dragged the mud. And those two. Things are kind of living side-by-side right now in the case of a terrorist particularly. Because I do think there's pretty good evidence that she hasn't been particularly forthcoming. Were truthful on a number of things other than this as a sort of general math what I would say if tomorrow a document surface that showed Joe Biden Tar. Read money to settle a dispute. And say you know you never speak of this sexual assault. She's not saying it exists. I'm not saying that but as a hypothetical no one would care about her. Could she make her rent? Did she. Bounce a check in the nineties does she right? Weird poetry about Glider Irrelevant the issue. Is that the story. Doesn't have that kind of corroborating evidence we have is her word and the word of some of her friends or people a neighbor and a friend of hers and her brother and over the course of the last year or story has shifted and their story has shifted and what I the reason I find this story so agonizing is that all we we have and it. It's not that to me. It's not that someone isn't telling the truth if I can't corroborate their story but it's a function of being a journalist that we have to get more than one person's word to be able to sell something so serious and that and that point about the the brother has had said that he had been told about this and the neighbor who we have talked about in our reporting and it is important to note as you do that. Those stories have have have changed around the edges and sometimes substantially as well right. It's not just Tarif Story. But also like to the extent there were something into Contemporary Corroboration. That has shifted as well right. I spoke to her core lady. Best friend from the nineties who she said. She had spoken to nineteen ninety-three about this and I called her and her year ago and she told me a very similar story. The story which was not about sexual misconduct and she actually said to me. I went back through my notes year ago and I had remembered her saying something to me and I went back and I looked at it and I called. I called her up and I said you know to me. Joe Biden never tried to kiss her at Joe Biden. Never tried to touch her. In that way. In a way that crossed the line it was always kind of. Oh did you take it that way a little bit? And she said that what she found was that Biden did that kind of stuff which we all know he has done on camera and that type of behavior and I personally think that is appropriate at the dot was the variety. She was talking about and I asked her. Then the why would you stay? Why would you say exonerate Biden Biden? Why I understand leaving detail out. But why did you tell me? A story really led me to believe that you're Fr- these never happened to your friends. And how is a friend? That's a difficult. It's hard to imagine the friend to imagine telling a reporter. This powerful man did not do these things to my friend and that to me is very different than saying you know. I didn't WanNa tell a friend soul story and I really pushed her on. I mean we had back and forth about it and I think theme of the article I wrote when he told me that she felt uncomfortable. Reading the whole thing and I said Yeah. That's that's about right. The whole thing is uncomfortable and it and I. I had this conversation with a person and she. I don't know why is that that came out naturally and it's just no there's no resolution to that you know she's saying. I'm telling the truth and I can't. I can't give her a truth. Serum we can't find old video of what really happened. We just don't have that Laura. Mcgann wrote that piece for. Vox which you should definitely check out and read the whole thing even if it is Sort of uncomfortable at points. Thank you Laura. Welcome next up Could President trump cost Republicans the Senate and twenty twenty pulling out of Arizona and Georgia? That should have the GOP worried after this reasonable show. Donald Trump's plan for reelection not going after a Quinnipiac University on Wednesday found Biden leading trump by eleven points. A Fox News poll showed Biden leading by eight points. Prompting the president to Tweet Fox News should fire their fake pollster and trump struggles also seem to be pulling down. Gop candidates in traditionally Republican states including Senator Martha mcsally and Arizona. Senator Is David Perdue and Kelly Laughlin. Georgia don't even now from the State of the twentieth race or Sam Cedar host the majority report with Sam Slaughter Answer Lena Maxwell Co host of the show signal boost just start with the sort of general state of things. Is there? Lena start with you. Which is I do feel like. I said the other day on the show that the basics here are as straightforward as can be which is right now. The equilibrium is the country's in terrible shape and the incumbent. President is not doing particularly well in bowling. That's basically where things stamp. Yeah I mean. It's not a surprise to anybody who's watching the president's news conferences every day That the Republican Party who continues to defend that conduct is going to see their poll. Numbers go down. Would I think though the Democrats really Americans who want to see change in November in the Senate in the White House would they need to think about though is not how much support or what percentage of Support Donald Trump has? I don't think that's going to change. What will change is the amount of people in that portion of the electorate? So you know. His base has pretty much remained stagnant. But I think there are fewer and fewer Americans in that percentage of the Americ- overall American electorate. And what I think going forward will be interesting to see. Is The democratic strategy in these states in a state like Georgia for example. Your Sauce Stacey. Abrams run against Brian. Kemp narrowly defeated among a lot of controversy but one of the most important things about that coalition that she was able to build is that it was a multi racial and it was the highest turnout in the history of midterm elections. And so we can do that again. You just have to go to the base of the Democratic Party. Just like trump goes to the base of his party all the time and try to get those people to leave the house because some people flip the trump but more people stayed home. So there's been this back and forth about sort of Biden in the strategy here. And I I think I I've come around to the view that it is inescapably referendum on the president it is particularly inescapable lear referendum on the president in the midst of historical cataclysm. That has cost one hundred thousand Americans our lives and that just lean into that. The I really do think that that is the best political strategy of this one. What are you back? I think it's the best political strategy for Joe Biden. I'm not sure that would have been the case with You know a myriad of Several of the other candidates but for Joe Biden and I would say yes and in this context this context of of Corona virus. I think that I think it's a good fit for for Joe Biden. I one of the things that we've been seeing is that the Republicans seem to have trouble finding some type told to suppress Azam for Joe Biden. I mean you know. The Obama Gate does not feel like they have figured that out. I mean that is not the idea that they're talking about Barack Obama in May of twenty twenty in a million years. I would have never guessed that that would be the strategy or at least what they're putting forward to try and run against the Democratic nominee. That's it's bizarre. And I think it's a function of their inability to get a toehold against Joe Biden. I agree and today was sort per example that so i WanNa play this interview that he did with Breakfast Club Ho Charlemagne the God which got which is one of these like you know. News Cycle Campaign Stories. That were used to play you the exchange and then get your thoughts are willing to take a listen a long way until November. We got more questions. You got more questions. I tell it if you have a problem figuring out whether you're for mayor trump and you ain't black it don't have nothing to do with trump. It has to do with the fact. I want something for my community. I would love to see my record man. I extended the voting rights. Twenty five years. I have record that is second the non end up. Cp's endorsed me. Every time I've run the world I mean. Come on take a look at the record. All right extremely classic two hundred proof by in there a bunch of different in different ways. I've found that cringe. Inducing thing to say your your thoughts on that exchange early look. I feel a lot of empathy for the staffers. Today that have to work to clean that up. I'm because I do think. It revealed a weakness in his candidacy. Which is that. He's gaffe prone and on certain issues. You just don't have any room for that on the issue of race. You really can't make a lot of mistakes. I remember an incident in two thousand sixteen. Were Hillary went on the same show with Charlemagne the God the breakfast club and Talk to plus for back which was a line from the beyond say album lemonade now. It was a fat that Hillary Clinton loves hot sauce and literally had a bottle in her bag. I thought there during the interview and you'll it became you know this thing where or Hillary is pandering to black people by talking about how sauce and referencing cultural touchstone. And so I think there is this narrow lining have to walk. This is different. This was a gaffe. He shouldn't accent. I'm glad he apologized. But I do think the Biden campaign has some weakness. Here I think that's why in Black woman as vice president. I think that would help to have somebody in the tent. And you with your cultural competency issues When you're grown but see here's a fun to release point. Sam Go ahead. Well I I was also struck by Charlemagne's follow up. Which is I want something material. Bring back to my community and Joe Biden. Had No answer for that. I mean he said I've authorized the the voting rights act. Well I mean let's be honest. Every single senator in two thousand six or seven maybe four. I'm including the vast majority Republicans also reauthorize the Voting Rights Act. That's not a terribly that should be a baseline Nevermind for Democratic senator. Any senator for that matter and so the fact that he couldn't respond with well. I'm glad you know you. I know you want stuff your community. And here's some of the ideas that I have to bring you some material benefits so I mean. I agree with their Lena. I think we should have a vice president a woman of color but I would also like to see that Vice President Woman of color offer and bring to the ticket. Some plans some proactive measures to bring material benefit to people. And I think that's hugely important and I think that's got overshadowed at the end of his Question the one thing about my one take on this in terms of just sort of the the surface politics to your point there. I think is encapsulates to me. What is fascinating in some ways maddening? In retrospect about the difference in two thousand sixteen twenty twenty hotels in the bag will become a mean attached to Hillary Clinton. And that told you were talking about. Sam was everything she said. Got That and right now. The trump people are looking abide and being like it doesn't work it doesn't work. This is not going to be like. It doesn't work and there's a whole book to be written about why that's the case. Joe Biden and twenty twenty and it was a case of Hillary Clinton Two Thousand Sixteen Sam Cedar and early in a Maxwell. Thank you both that does it for all in you can catch us every weeknight at eight o'clock on MSNBC don't forget to like us on facebook. That's FACEBOOK DOT com slash. All in with Chris.
