We've had elections like in eighteen hundred so read federal a sixty eight understand.

Are you going to be able to go through signature verification. What is the process here. What does it look like. Yeah well it looks different in every state and that's why there's so much intentional confusion on mainstream media is for example in georgia when we have this very narrow margin of fourteen thousand votes. Let's not forget in florida in two thousand that was dealing with over sixty one thousand votes with president bush. And so we keep asking. A question will recounts don't mean anything. Keep counting the same illegal ballots in the same illegal manner. You're not going to get a different result. You need to have signature matching. You need to make sure that all of these processes are completed in a way that protects election. We have evidence of ballots. Being counted in secret of ballots.

The mainstream media is gonna try to spend that so what we're dealing with is about six states so far possibly more that have challenges that we are going through those appropriate steps arizona included. And of course we're winning challenged that and that's why the state legislature is one of those states that will be holding a hearing because they are very concerned about election integrity and every american should be very grateful. That state legislatures are looking into this. Because it's important and it's critical.

Atlanta - Savannah mayor hits back at Kemp for overriding local mask mandates: He 'does not give a damn about us'

"Words on Twitter from the mayor of Savannah, Georgia. It is officially official wrote Mayor Van Johnson last night. Governor Kemp does not give a damn about us. The mayor's tweet came shortly after Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed an executive order banning local governments from requiring masks that put a finer point on an earlier executive order prohibiting cities and counties from taking any action that was more restrictive than what was ordered statewide. And so amid rising cases of Corona virus throughout Georgia, existing mask mandates, including the one in Savannah, are essentially void. Mayor Van Johnson joins us now Welcome to the program. Thank you so much. I appreciate the opportunity. Well, I'm sure you know. Governor Kemp has said he strongly encourages mass. He wears one in public. But, he says requiring them is impractical and unenforceable for local business owners. For example, he says, mandates are a bridge too far. How do you respond to that? I respond to it by following the science, um, is issue about public safety about public health, or is it about convenience? Right to the west of us all. The state of Alabama now mandates mask in South Carolina and in Florida, they live up to them in the palate ease to decide whether the mandate mask And even today, the White House when asked about a nationwide math quarter on the White House is leaving that decision up to localities. So again, I think for us we are in the fight for lots were trying to get past Cove in 19. It's going to take all of us firing on all cylinders, working together to be able to make this happen, and we know from the sides from the CDC, which is located in Atlanta. That wearing mask is a part of the three pronged approach to be able to slow down the spread of this virus. And you made mass mandatory in public spaces and commercial establishments there in Savannah on July 1st, you were the first in Georgia to do so. How hard has it been to enforce has not really been hard to enforce because Again. Our goal here was compliance, not enforcement. So we've given out over 1000 mask and anyone who wanted a mass before we will write a ticket for anyone. We would offer him a mask. And so our visitors, our citizens gratefully took a mask on and therefore no ticket was required. The goal of this again. It's 1/2 people to wear a mask and again we have with 15 million visitors come to our beautiful city every year. Some know some don't know again. Our role is to make sure we educate and make sure we provide a mass that they are a compliant. Governor Kim's office sent us a statement here at NPR calling your mask mandate illegal since it is more restrictive than what's mandated statewide. And they said there's no evidence you're taking action to enforce what is required statewide, including social distancing. They say you haven't stopped unlawful gatherings in your city, for instance, How do you respond to that? Hey, I think again where we're really focused on the wrong things. Um, The reality is that science is very, very clear. We're all doing the best we can during these very hard type again. Social distancing per his order is filled with 50 people. I believe and again, people are out. Things are open and people are gathering. Um and begin our ability to enforce. It is limited because these unfunded mandates from the state level the government could put order out there. But he's not giving us a resource is to help us to enforce those orders. So again, we're doing the best that we can again. This is really about the wearing of mask. This is about being able to keep people safe decides has been absolutely clear. On July 2nd government, Kemp said himself that he was not going to stand in the way ofthe Savannah's mandatory mass corner. Yet here we are two weeks later, and he's issuing something specifically and the only one in the country. That specifically, um denies cities and counties the ability to be able to take care of their citizens. And to me that's unacceptable and we're almost out of time. But quickly. What now for Savannah, will you fight the ban on mask mandates? And in the meantime, what are you telling residents of your city? Well for us. There's nothing to fight a CZ. Where could we were concerned of Savannah's mass mandate is still in effect. We still have legal standing. We believe the government does not have the authority. Um And so therefore we continued to enforce it will enforce our current mask order. Even if that brings you head to head with the governor. Again, the governor do would he have to do? We will do what it takes, and we believe we have not only legal standing, but we have the science behind us to Dolly demonstrate that an emergent condition exists in Havana in Georgia. I'm going to stop you there. But thanks so much. That's Mayor Van Johnson of Savannah, Georgia. Thank you. And since we spoke with Mayor Johnson NPR has learned that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has filed a lawsuit against Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance bottoms to block her city's mask wearing requirement.

most of us have been out to eat today restaurants in Georgia we're allowed to open for dine in service as the state continues to loosen coronavirus restrictions Tennessee's re opening retail stores Kentucky's re openings of health care services dog groomers can reopen in Wisconsin we're corona virus has hit harder it's different the governor of New Jersey said today restrictions continue indefinitely and the governor of New York said he expected to extend them for the city and its suburbs but the lunch crowd came back in parts of Georgia as our affiliate WSB found a chance to eat inside a restaurant Kim Kucera says this Brookhaven waffle house was her first choice the family hang out we are talking about the whole field in this family in the champ wasn't here this day but the company says no matter who walks in some things haven't changed they're going to get that welcome the waffle house the greeting that we're all excited to be able to give them for when they come in it'll be very clear where they can and cannot said company spokesperson in Gerry boss showed us the big red tape strapped across some of the books and some of the schools are also off limits to maintain safe social distancing the cooks and servers are all wearing masks and X. marks the spot where you can stand as you wait for a seat some don't like governor camp's decision to allow restaurants like this to re open their dining rooms but boss believes many of the critics may be able to work from home while still collecting a paycheck to say that when they still have all of those things we want to be here to make sure that everybody who wants to go and have the opportunity to can take care of themselves and their family that's the American way as for Kim cassette as she feels comfortable eating inside says there's a sense of home here and it all starts off with waffle house what can't get any more American the waffle house right many will never feel comfortable venturing out or re opening a business without a vaccine and most experts think that's at least a year away some scientists are considering rather unconventional ways to speed up the process one of them raises some moral questions we're joined by Dr Angela Baldwin of Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx is also part of our medical team here at ABC news Dr Baldwin this method involves injecting healthy adults with live coronavirus correct so this is called a challenge trial where healthy adults are divided into two groups one group received a placebo and the other group receives the potential vaccine but both groups are injected with the virus and the point is for them to for researchers to see how effective the vaccine is against the virus and this kind of speed up the timeline because normally in a normal situation what somebody receives a vaccine the researchers just have to kind of wait for that person to naturally be infected with whatever virus or disease that the vaccines intended to treat is it the only way to do this definitely not this normally vaccine trials go through three phases phase one phase to help determine the specific dosing that safe and then you know an overall kind of safety of the vaccine and then in phase three is when they do these large very large trials for the enroll thousands of patients and a half receive the vaccine the other half isn't but then they just kind of track them and follow them throughout their daily lives and see okay all this group you know they were exposed to the virus and it looks like the vaccine worked the problem is these are just very long and then kind of a bit cumbersome and so that's why some researchers are proposing this challenge trial the kind of by pass phase three doesn't raise any moral dilemmas definitely a moral dilemmas they do try to mitigate the risk but the fact of the matter is we are taking otherwise healthy adults and injecting them with a virus that could have serious consequences including death the other side they do try to mitigate the risks they would only be enrolling healthy adult volunteers without underlying medical conditions but the problem is we do know that unfortunately there are young people who are still dying from call the nineteen you may also not have any underlying conditions there's still so much we don't know that just makes it's completely unsafe and the other problem is if somebody does get very sick you know we're dealing with a health care crisis right now work the critical care that one may need may not always be readily available and resources may be scarce so to inject somebody of the virus and the potentially kill them and put them in a situation where they urgently need critical care that might not be available raises a few eyebrows from from office I guess it's tempting though when everyone wants the vaccine this seems like the speediest way you know if they could and and one of the questions we ask ourselves is how much does this speed up the the normal course of us finding a vaccine right so if it only speeded up by one month maybe not that great of an idea of the speeded up by six months eight months okay maybe but also the thing to realize is that the challenge trials only one part of a of a two step process these researchers are suggesting would replace phase three so you still have the challenge of trial where the people are given the live virus but then in the second part they would need to test the vaccine on the most vulnerable members of the population right the elderly people under my medical conditions these are the people who really need the vaccine so we need to make sure it's safe in them so during the second phase they would give each of those types of people the vaccine but they would not be injecting them with the with the virus so that means we still in this kind of things were waiting for these people to in the natural course of their days be exposed to the virus so it's really not short meaning that the for the third phase by that much if you think about it who's going to decide ultimately you know that's a very good question I think ultimately we have these things called internal review boards RBC and they are designed to look out for the welfare of participants in subjects in studies and I think it's basically going to fall on the individual IRB's to decide whether or not they're going to allow this to to commission their institution Dr Angela Baldwin of the ABC news medical unit while the world waits for a vaccine all of us adapt to new routines out of our offices and working from say the kitchen table firms are now debating how and whether to repopulate offices small workers are deciding whether they're comfortable taking off the sweat pants and putting back on the suit consumer minute vices law firm said soy Hauser group you joins us from Chicago we're all kind of getting used to this aren't we yes you know I think this is going better than many law firms thought it would technology working well generally people are productive at home some people even like it what's not to like you can be in your pajamas and still accomplish the same kind of work you know in a candid moment a lot of lawyers would probably tell you that and I think that there is upside for both lawyers and for firms to do that the flexibility is something the people of wanted since before the crisis in some law firms before the crisis we're taking small steps towards being more flexible about where people worked and they saw upside both in attracting talent who wanted to be working where they were comfortable where they were where it was convenient also for the law firms there's a big expense of course on the real estate side real estate for most law firms is their second biggest expense behind paying lawyers so they're interested long term many law firms are in using less space why would any firm go back to renting expensive space again if this is working it's that's a great question different firms are different so some firms before the crisis we're happy to move towards less space and I think that the crisis will accelerate the move towards less space for those firms other firms the before the crisis had a culture of being in the office together they placed a premium on facetime and I think after the crisis some of those firms will revert to form and they will want to be in the office more so there will be some that accelerate towards work at home more and take on less space and I think others will want to snap back to how they were previously law firms like many other firms can be notoriously inflexible though about people's time has the shortest that it can work differently I think that this crisis has proven that actually can work pretty well for many lawyers in many firms different lawyers have practices that lend themselves to working remotely so for example a lawyer who needs to appear in court or take depositions in person that doesn't work as well remotely of course others though K. and worked quite productively from anywhere and that works for the firm in for their clients when you ask people what the impediments are to remote working some of the things that come up are things like whether working remotely as an impediment to mentoring opportunities for young and up and coming lawyers they asked about whether working remotely as an impediment to a training those lawyers and they also ask about whether working remotely is an impediment to collaborating together and so some firms will find ways to address those impediments and work around them others will feel the need to be a person more often Kent Zimmerman a principle that's only because our group joining us from Chicago coming

S. B. latest news and talk you're listening to an ABC news special copay nineteen what do you need to know in the B. C. news correspondent Amy Robach and with me now is ABC chief medical correspondent Dr Jen Ashton and there is some big news about colleges and universities considering re opening in the fall let's go through this systematically how it would work well first of all I mean we have to acknowledge is a complex situation in the health and safety of not just this population but the entire college and university community is obviously priority number one but here are some things that we know at this point medically we know that the college age group is at a lower risk of severe covert nineteen disease we also know that in this age group and in this environment social distancing is definitely going to be uniquely challenging and we also know that there are people in these communities whether they're college students with pre existing medical conditions or the staff or faculty that worked in and around colleges that could be vulnerable and may be at higher risk as well what options should be considered well I think there are some theories that are worth really exploring the first thing is is can we modify the timing of the spacing some of the classroom activities some of the other activities they shouldn't be looked at like an all or none decision in terms of sports theatre dormitory dining all of those things could be modified it's not an all or one situation and we have to remember that masks once the CDC recommended that for the general public they may be a key tool in reducing the transmission of this virus in the college communities from a health standpoint what do we still need to figure out well look luckily we have a little bit of time to do this but I think there is still a lot of things we don't know where to begin with we don't know what the role of rapid testing on a college campus can look like we don't know whether to college students and whether our kids will actually be compliant with some of the social distancing measures and we really don't know when you talk about risks which is worse right now going back to college in some way shape or form or take taking another year plus and not going back you both have to weigh those risks head to head and it's not an easy answer all right Dr Jenna you're sticking around to answer questions in just a bit in the meantime we turn out A. B. C.'s kera Phillips in Washington DC with the latest headlines for us hi Amy well these are some of the stories that were watching plans to re open the economy are taking shape in a number of states restaurants in Atlanta starting up again with new rules in place for diners today including tables six feet apart and servers wearing masks and in New Jersey governor Phil Murphy is unveiling what he calls responsible re opening driven by quote data science and common sense and Texas governor Greg Abbott also detail in the plan for ending his statewide stay at home orders and re emerging for the first time today after pretty brutal bout of the virus British prime minister Boris Johnson apologizing for being away for three weeks and warning it's too soon to end the locked down in the U. K. speaking outside number ten Downing Street Johnson says we are now beginning to turn the tide on this disease but says he refuses to throw away the public's effort and sacrifice by relaxing the lockdown too soon thank you well the mayor of Las Vegas made headlines last week when she volunteered the city as a control group to see if social distancing is working joining us now to talk about how and when Las Vegas will reopen as Clark County commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick welcome commissioner and I want to first start by asking how you feel about mayor Goodman's comments well I don't agree with her you know my colleagues and I who oversee the beautiful Las Vegas Strip bill that we have to our highest priority needs to be the health and safety of not only our residents we work on this trip but the visitors who come to visit us yeah and that said the mayor also feels hotels casinos restaurants should reopen right now when do you think they should reopen and what will the economic impact three well we've been working every single day with our medical experts across the state a resort association are McCarron airport and the convention that's already so we are working in that direction testing is the key to getting us back open and we are in the middle of expanding that testing opportunities so we will open only when it's safe and we have the most stringent priorities and policies in place can you talk a little bit about specifically how the county is working with the casinos there and other businesses to prevent another outbreak when you do eventually re open well I thought back to we we have been successfully doing social doesn't change we are ramping up casting today we can do up to two thousand tests today we anticipate by June first being able to ten thousand task our hotel partners and our airports they're making some adjustments so that our visitors bilberry see it coming back and that is our priority and we'll invite everybody back when we feel that we can meet those and do you do you how do you feel the people of Clark County are doing in terms of doing that social distancing and following the guidelines you know we're doing a great job every single day we look at different ways I mean even as we bring back our own stops we have to think about how do we have that social distancing and the grocery stores we have lines out for running grocery lines one way I'm so I I'm very proud of what we're doing in our community on the social distancing face while commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick we know it's a tough job thank you for leading the people who use Sir we appreciate your time today thank you get back to work some schools may still be close so where do we go from there the CEO of childcare provider bright horizons Stephen Kramer is here to tell us and Stephen thanks for being with us I know that you have locations daycare locations across the country how many of your facilities remain open so we have a hundred and fifty centers here across the United States that are continuing to be operational and are clearly working under covert nineteen protocols yeah that is pretty surprising I think for a lot of us and and I'm sure so helpful to so many who need your facilities how are you able to keep them open safely absolutely so first and foremost we are focused on those hundred and fifty centers on providing care for essential workers most typically healthcare workers in so first and foremost we are really focused on that particular population in terms of keeping our staff as well as children safe we have implemented processes and procedures in conjunction with a medical expert Dr Kristen Moffett from Boston children's hospital whereby we are ensuring that we are able to keep children safe keep staff safe and really make sure that we are operating both from hygiene perspective as well as from a safety perspective really in an appropriate way so hundred fifty centers open right now what changes will need to be implemented though when day cares fully open back up yes so I I think families can expect a number of changes from what they experience prior to the pandemic also examples include pick up and drop off so often times they will be seen either staggered pick up and drop offs or alternatively it may be curbside pick up and drop off I think certainly I health checks either being asked to be done at home or being done at the centre when they arrive is an important element of keeping everyone safe in addition to that the teachers they will be wearing masks when when families returned and certainly in the bright horizons centers that are open today our teachers are wearing masks also those are the kinds of things they might expect in addition to enhanced hygiene protocols yeah it's Stephen is there anything parents can do now to be prepared for what's to come I think there are things that parents can be doing I think first and foremost it's really important for parents to make sure that they are checking the health of their child each morning and each and every day to make sure that they are not bring their child if they have any sign or symptom of a health issue I think in addition to that children won't be used to the teachers wearing masks that's not something that they would have experienced previously and so my recommendation would be to as a parent start wearing masks around the house start to educate your child that heroes wear masks and certainly the teachers in the centers are heroes and so experiencing and exposing them to that concept is important and then finally I would encourage pet parents to prepare themselves they need to have a little bit of extra patience and I would encourage them to show appreciation for the teachers who are working tirelessly through both now and in the future in the child care center environment I think so many parents are home right now have a absolute renewed appreciation of teachers and I love what you said heroes wear masks that's awesome Stephen Kramer thank you so much for being with us today we appreciate it thank you for having me UP next right here those masks are suddenly everywhere and officials say it's a good idea but the sight of them can frighten our children some techniques for helping them deal when we come back this can be seen news special continues after this eleven eleven thirty

Ashton will masks and face coverings have become such a familiar sight around the country in this corona virus pandemic with a number of states now requiring them during visits to essential businesses and on public transportation but the sight of them can be scary especially for children A.

C.'s Ariel Russia has more on what you can do to help lessen their anxiety Hey there any as you know kids can ask some pretty tough questions and this can actually be scary for them as you mention when they see people out there wearing masks they see their parents wearing masks but experts say there are ways to help them adapt to this new normal and some of them are not only just educational but they can even be fine faking street shuttered businesses empty playgrounds the images of this covert nineteen pandemic are hard for even adults to process but for kids like four year old alley and five year old Adriana Alfano seeing people wearing masks is perhaps the most jarring it they just I was really strange a new normal forcing families like the L. fan I was to have some tough conversations it does open up both a big can of worms and a lot of different questions public face covering now recommended by the CDC for adults and children ages two and up how do you think the imagery of people wearing masks can affect kids well initially when kids see someone wearing a mask depending on what they associate it with before it could bring up some beer new dad and entrepreneur Trevor George and his wife Morgan wanted to help ease that anxiety we believe that in order to solve this everyone has to do their part Michigan based teacher company struggling when the pandemic hit economy it had the two created mass club issues like it has to be a way you can help and work with your branch at the same time retiring more than fifty percent of their furloughed employees or adults with a lot of characters like hello Kitty Wonder Woman Batman and Superman we have an eight month old and when my wife and I put on our Batman or Wonder Woman masks he reaches for the colors that has a familiar logo can help your child more east club a passion project with added and for every mass that's purchased we donate a medical grade version two first responders in partnership with the first responders children's need and creating a bright spot family having some fun some levity and then mixing them with information Trevor says that they have donated nearly one hundred thousand masks already any clearly this idea of wearing a branded logo mask and also doing some good while you're in the process of that is really resonate yeah it's a win win I was even saying I know kids it's scary to them it's scary to me sometimes when you see people because it is jarring seeing circle in masks all of a sudden what tools can parents use when they talk about this with their children well doctor Taylor says it's important to impress upon your kids that they're taking care of themselves they're taking care of others this is a safety precaution just like wearing a helmet when you ride a bike or buckling your seat belt when you're in the car and she also says that it's important to have these honest conversations with your kids just be up front with them lead by example when you're comfortable wearing your own mask children see that and they're more at ease as well makes sense and kids are certainly resilient aerial thank you so much for bringing us this we appreciate it for gonna turn out to Dr Jen Ashton for some thoughts on this for some perspective here I mean we have to remember it was just recently that the CDC made a major change of revising their guidelines recommending face coverings for the general public not to protect the person wearing the mask but to protect others so as the saying we're so used to hearing here in New York City it's not about me it's about a week but here's the interesting thing from a medical and scientific standpoint remember that the data on face coverings or masks protecting you was done in a lab right that's why we say in a hospital setting we put masks on sick people with a different kind of mask on health care workers but there's a big difference between scientific research done in a lab setting and those done in a real life setting so we're seeing one of major Boston Medical Center has dropped the rate of its staff cases of covert nineteen dramatically once they instituted a policy where everyone staff patients and visitors started wearing masks so we'll see how it plays out in our country Dr Ashton thank you and when we come back the army of volunteers in one city working hard to help frontline heroes shine these special continues after this about half of all men will experience ET or PT fact both E.

Peachtree street at ninety five point five WSP Atlanta's news and talk is an NBC news special covert nineteen what you need to know here is ABC news correspondent Aaron Katersky it's been weeks since most of us have been out to eat today restaurants in Georgia we're allowed to open for dine in service as the state continues to loosen coronavirus restrictions Tennessee's re opening retail stores Kentucky's re openings of health care services dog groomers can reopen in Wisconsin we're corona virus has hit harder it's different the governor of New Jersey said today restrictions continue indefinitely and the governor of New York said he expected to extend them for the city and its suburbs but the lunch crowd came back in parts of Georgia as our affiliate WSB found a chance to eat inside a restaurant Kim Kucera says this Brookhaven waffle house was her first choice the family hang out we are talking about the whole field in this family in the champ wasn't here this day but the company says no matter who walks in some things haven't changed they're going to get that welcome the waffle house the greeting that we're all excited to be able to give them for when they come in it'll be very clear where they can and cannot said company spokesperson in Gerry boss showed us the big red tape strapped across some of the books and some of the schools are also off limits to maintain safe social distancing the cooks and servers are all wearing masks and X. marks the spot where you can stand as you wait for a seat some don't like governor camp's decision to allow restaurants like this to re open their dining rooms but boss believes many of the critics may be able to work from home while still collecting a paycheck to say that when they still have all of those things we want to be here to make sure that everybody who wants to go and have the opportunity to can take care of themselves and their family that's the American way as for Kim cassette as she feels comfortable eating inside says there's a sense of home here and it all starts off with waffle house what can't get any more American the waffle house right many will never feel comfortable venturing out or re opening a business without a vaccine and most experts think that's at least a year away some scientists are considering rather unconventional ways to speed up the process one of them raises some moral questions we're joined by Dr Angela Baldwin of Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx is also part of our medical team here at ABC news Dr Baldwin this method involves injecting healthy adults with live coronavirus correct so this is called a challenge trial where healthy adults are divided into two groups one group received a placebo and the other group receives the potential vaccine but both groups are injected with the virus and the point is for them to for researchers to see how effective the vaccine is against the virus and this kind of speed up the timeline because normally in a normal situation what somebody receives a vaccine the researchers just have to kind of wait for that person to naturally be infected with whatever virus or disease that the vaccines intended to treat is it the only way to do this definitely not this normally vaccine trials go through three phases phase one phase to help determine the specific dosing that safe and then you know an overall kind of safety of the vaccine and then in phase three is when they do these large very large trials for the enroll thousands of patients and a half receive the vaccine the other half isn't but then they just kind of track them and follow them throughout their daily lives and see okay all this group you know they were exposed to the virus and it looks like the vaccine worked the problem is these are just very long and then kind of a bit cumbersome and so that's why some researchers are proposing this challenge trial the kind of by pass phase three doesn't raise any moral dilemmas definitely a moral dilemmas they do try to mitigate the risk but the fact of the matter is we are taking otherwise healthy adults and injecting them with a virus that could have serious consequences including death the other side they do try to mitigate the risks they would only be enrolling healthy adult volunteers without underlying medical conditions but the problem is we do know that unfortunately there are young people who are still dying from call the nineteen you may also not have any underlying conditions there's still so much we don't know that just makes it's completely unsafe and the other problem is if somebody does get very sick you know we're dealing with a health care crisis right now work the critical care that one may need may not always be readily available and resources may be scarce so to inject somebody of the virus and the potentially kill them and put them in a situation where they urgently need critical care that might not be available raises a few eyebrows from from office I guess it's tempting though when everyone wants the vaccine this seems like the speediest way you know if they could and and one of the questions we ask ourselves is how much does this speed up the the normal course of us finding a vaccine right so if it only speeded up by one month maybe not that great of an idea of the speeded up by six months eight months okay maybe but also the thing to realize is that the challenge trials only one part of a of a two step process these researchers are suggesting would replace phase three so you still have the challenge of trial where the people are given the live virus but then in the second part they would need to test the vaccine on the most vulnerable members of the population right the elderly people under my medical conditions these are the people who really need the vaccine so we need to make sure it's safe in them so during the second phase they would give each of those types of people the vaccine but they would not be injecting them with the with the virus so that means we still in this kind of things were waiting for these people to in the natural course of their days be exposed to the virus so it's really not short meaning that the for the third phase by that much if you think about it who's going to decide ultimately you know that's a very good question I think ultimately we have these things called internal review boards RBC and they are designed to look out for the welfare of participants in subjects in studies and I think it's basically going to fall on the individual IRB's to decide whether or not they're going to allow this to to commission their institution Dr Angela Baldwin of the ABC news medical unit while the world waits for a vaccine all of us adapt to new routines out of our offices and working from say the kitchen table firms are now debating how and whether to repopulate offices small workers are deciding whether they're comfortable taking off the sweat pants and putting back on the suit consumer minute vices law firm said soy Hauser group you joins us from Chicago we're all kind of getting used to this aren't we yes you know I think this is going better than many law firms thought it would technology working well generally people are productive at home some people even like it what's not to like you can be in your pajamas and still accomplish the same kind of work you know in a candid moment a lot of lawyers would probably tell you that and I think that there is upside for both lawyers and for firms to do that the flexibility is something the people of wanted since before the crisis in some law firms before the crisis we're taking small steps towards being more flexible about where people worked and they saw upside both in attracting talent who wanted to be working where they were comfortable where they were where it was convenient also for the law firms there's a big expense of course on the real estate side real estate for most law firms is their second biggest expense behind paying lawyers so they're interested long term many law firms are in using less space why would any firm go back to renting expensive space again if this is working it's that's a great question different firms are different so some firms before the crisis we're happy to move towards less space and I think that the crisis will accelerate the move towards less space for those firms other firms the before the crisis had a culture of being in the office together they placed a premium on facetime and I think after the crisis some of those firms will revert to form and they will want to be in the office more so there will be some that accelerate towards work at home more and take on less space and I think others will want to snap back to how they were previously law firms like many other firms can be notoriously inflexible though about people's time has the shortest that it can work differently I think that this crisis has proven that actually can work pretty well for many lawyers in many firms different lawyers have practices that lend themselves to working remotely so for example a lawyer who needs to appear in court or take depositions in person that doesn't work as well remotely of course others though K. and worked quite productively from anywhere and that works for the firm in for their clients when you ask people what the impediments are to remote working some of the things that come up are things like whether working remotely as an impediment to mentoring opportunities for young and up and coming lawyers they asked about whether working remotely as an impediment to a training those lawyers and they also ask about whether working remotely is an impediment to collaborating together and so some firms will find ways to address those impediments and work around them others will feel the need to be a person more often Kent Zimmerman a principle that's only because our group joining us from Chicago coming

S. B. latest news and talk you're listening to an ABC news special copay nineteen what do you need to know in the B. C. news correspondent Amy Robach and with me now is ABC chief medical correspondent Dr Jen Ashton and there is some big news about colleges and universities considering re opening in the fall let's go through this systematically how it would work well first of all I mean we have to acknowledge is a complex situation in the health and safety of not just this population but the entire college and university community is obviously priority number one but here are some things that we know at this point medically we know that the college age group is at a lower risk of severe covert nineteen disease we also know that in this age group and in this environment social distancing is definitely going to be uniquely challenging and we also know that there are people in these communities whether they're college students with pre existing medical conditions or the staff or faculty that worked in and around colleges that could be vulnerable and may be at higher risk as well what options should be considered well I think there are some theories that are worth really exploring the first thing is is can we modify the timing of the spacing some of the classroom activities some of the other activities they shouldn't be looked at like an all or none decision in terms of sports theatre dormitory dining all of those things could be modified it's not an all or one situation and we have to remember that masks once the CDC recommended that for the general public they may be a key tool in reducing the transmission of this virus in the college communities from a health standpoint what do we still need to figure out well look luckily we have a little bit of time to do this but I think there is still a lot of things we don't know where to begin with we don't know what the role of rapid testing on a college campus can look like we don't know whether to college students and whether our kids will actually be compliant with some of the social distancing measures and we really don't know when you talk about risks which is worse right now going back to college in some way shape or form or take taking another year plus and not going back you both have to weigh those risks head to head and it's not an easy answer all right Dr Jenna you're sticking around to answer questions in just a bit in the meantime we turn out A. B. C.'s kera Phillips in Washington DC with the latest headlines for us hi Amy well these are some of the stories that were watching plans to re open the economy are taking shape in a number of states restaurants in Atlanta starting up again with new rules in place for diners today including tables six feet apart and servers wearing masks and in New Jersey governor Phil Murphy is unveiling what he calls responsible re opening driven by quote data science and common sense and Texas governor Greg Abbott also detail in the plan for ending his statewide stay at home orders and re emerging for the first time today after pretty brutal bout of the virus British prime minister Boris Johnson apologizing for being away for three weeks and warning it's too soon to end the locked down in the U. K. speaking outside number ten Downing Street Johnson says we are now beginning to turn the tide on this disease but says he refuses to throw away the public's effort and sacrifice by relaxing the lockdown too soon thank you well the mayor of Las Vegas made headlines last week when she volunteered the city as a control group to see if social distancing is working joining us now to talk about how and when Las Vegas will reopen as Clark County commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick welcome commissioner and I want to first start by asking how you feel about mayor Goodman's comments well I don't agree with her you know my colleagues and I who oversee the beautiful Las Vegas Strip bill that we have to our highest priority needs to be the health and safety of not only our residents we work on this trip but the visitors who come to visit us yeah and that said the mayor also feels hotels casinos restaurants should reopen right now when do you think they should reopen and what will the economic impact three well we've been working every single day with our medical experts across the state a resort association are McCarron airport and the convention that's already so we are working in that direction testing is the key to getting us back open and we are in the middle of expanding that testing opportunities so we will open only when it's safe and we have the most stringent priorities and policies in place can you talk a little bit about specifically how the county is working with the casinos there and other businesses to prevent another outbreak when you do eventually re open well I thought back to we we have been successfully doing social doesn't change we are ramping up casting today we can do up to two thousand tests today we anticipate by June first being able to ten thousand task our hotel partners and our airports they're making some adjustments so that our visitors bilberry see it coming back and that is our priority and we'll invite everybody back when we feel that we can meet those and do you do you how do you feel the people of Clark County are doing in terms of doing that social distancing and following the guidelines you know we're doing a great job every single day we look at different ways I mean even as we bring back our own stops we have to think about how do we have that social distancing and the grocery stores we have lines out for running grocery lines one way I'm so I I'm very proud of what we're doing in our community on the social distancing face while commissioner Marilyn Kirkpatrick we know it's a tough job thank you for leading the people who use Sir we appreciate your time today thank you get back to work some schools may still be close so where do we go from there the CEO of childcare provider bright horizons Stephen Kramer is here to tell us and Stephen thanks for being with us I know that you have locations daycare locations across the country how many of your facilities remain open so we have a hundred and fifty centers here across the United States that are continuing to be operational and are clearly working under covert nineteen protocols yeah that is pretty surprising I think for a lot of us and and I'm sure so helpful to so many who need your facilities how are you able to keep them open safely absolutely so first and foremost we are focused on those hundred and fifty centers on providing care for essential workers most typically healthcare workers in so first and foremost we are really focused on that particular population in terms of keeping our staff as well as children safe we have implemented processes and procedures in conjunction with a medical expert Dr Kristen Moffett from Boston children's hospital whereby we are ensuring that we are able to keep children safe keep staff safe and really make sure that we are operating both from hygiene perspective as well as from a safety perspective really in an appropriate way so hundred fifty centers open right now what changes will need to be implemented though when day cares fully open back up yes so I I think families can expect a number of changes from what they experience prior to the pandemic also examples include pick up and drop off so often times they will be seen either staggered pick up and drop offs or alternatively it may be curbside pick up and drop off I think certainly I health checks either being asked to be done at home or being done at the centre when they arrive is an important element of keeping everyone safe in addition to that the teachers they will be wearing masks when when families returned and certainly in the bright horizons centers that are open today our teachers are wearing masks also those are the kinds of things they might expect in addition to enhanced hygiene protocols yeah it's Stephen is there anything parents can do now to be prepared for what's to come I think there are things that parents can be doing I think first and foremost it's really important for parents to make sure that they are checking the health of their child each morning and each and every day to make sure that they are not bring their child if they have any sign or symptom of a health issue I think in addition to that children won't be used to the teachers wearing masks that's not something that they would have experienced previously and so my recommendation would be to as a parent start wearing masks around the house start to educate your child that heroes wear masks and certainly the teachers in the centers are heroes and so experiencing and exposing them to that concept is important and then finally I would encourage pet parents to prepare themselves they need to have a little bit of extra patience and I would encourage them to show appreciation for the teachers who are working tirelessly through both now and in the future in the child care center environment I think so many parents are home right now have a absolute renewed appreciation of teachers and I love what you said heroes wear masks that's awesome Stephen Kramer thank you so much for being with us today we appreciate it thank you for having me UP next right here those masks are suddenly everywhere and officials say it's a good idea but the sight of them can frighten our children some techniques for helping them deal when we come back this can be seen news special continues after this eleven eleven thirty

S. B. latest news and talk listening to an ABC news special Kobe nineteen what you need to know once again here is ABC news correspondent Amy Robach new questions every day about this pandemic emergency Dr Jen Ashton is back with us with some answers to your questions and Dr Jenn we've got our first question I have a family member who needs to fly for work are there any other safety measures besides gloves and masks that you would recommend that is really the most important for the passenger you can try to plan the time of that travel maybe to lower peak hours if that's possible but what's interesting about travel is that some degree of travel is not gonna be optional or elective in the near future so we're starting to see as we've heard before airlines start to play around with how they can help reduce the risk so again cover your mouth and nose clean your hands and for now as an individual that's the best you can do all right our next question our sinus drainage and post nasal drip possible symptoms of cold at nineteen even without a fever interesting because we're hearing the CDC revise the symptom less straight they added six symptoms to cope in nineteen he used to be fever cough shortness of breath now they've extended it to body aches headache loss of smell taste sore throat even headache but here's the important thing with the post nasal drip and allergies we are an allergy season and as I always say you can have more than one thing at a time so yes it's possible that you could have a mild case of cobit and allergies and one of the new symptoms the CDC added was a sore throat so again above the neck symptoms it is possible and I'm sure we're gonna be seeing that list of symptoms get expanded in the future next question I'm a college professor recovering from coded nineteen and I'm struggling with sudden loss of secondary language fluency has there been any research on cognitive impairments related to cope with nineteen no formal research and data out yet Amy but you can imagine how frightening that would be if you start to notice these we you and I've talked here about neurologic manifestations to cove in nineteen there have been reports in the medical literature of people presenting with headache seizure dizziness loss and smell and taste are neurologic symptoms so cognitive function we may see that certainly and seriously cove in nineteen patients who have been in and I see you that's to be expected but we'll we'll hope that those things return back to normal okay next question we've been talking a lot about pregnancy this one about new moms is it safe to vaccinate babies or give booster MMR shots without testing them for cove in nineteen any expected complications like fever or anything else a couple of things with this because it's really important for the American academy of pediatrics talk about the risks of delaying infant immunizations in the setting of the covert nineteen pandemic number one fever is a possibly a good reaction of our body to anything whether it's a vaccination for exposure to something like Kobe right now pediatricians offices are not testing babies for cove it before they administer routine I mean ations but that may change in the future and we have to remember those immunizations are important so any concerns really want the parents to talk to the pediatrician all right great advice as always Dr Jan thank you and if you have questions for Dr Ashton you can submit them on her Instagram at Dr J. Ashton will masks and face coverings have become such a familiar sight around the country in this corona virus pandemic with a number of states now requiring them during visits to essential businesses and on public transportation but the sight of them can be scary especially for children A. B. C.'s Ariel Russia has more on what you can do to help lessen their anxiety Hey there any as you know kids can ask some pretty tough questions and this can actually be scary for them as you mention when they see people out there wearing masks they see their parents wearing masks but experts say there are ways to help them adapt to this new normal and some of them are not only just educational but they can even be fine faking street shuttered businesses empty playgrounds the images of this covert nineteen pandemic are hard for even adults to process but for kids like four year old alley and five year old Adriana Alfano seeing people wearing masks is perhaps the most jarring it they just I was really strange a new normal forcing families like the L. fan I was to have some tough conversations it does open up both a big can of worms and a lot of different questions public face covering now recommended by the CDC for adults and children ages two and up how do you think the imagery of people wearing masks can affect kids well initially when kids see someone wearing a mask depending on what they associate it with before it could bring up some beer new dad and entrepreneur Trevor George and his wife Morgan wanted to help ease that anxiety we believe that in order to solve this everyone has to do their part Michigan based teacher company struggling when the pandemic hit economy it had the two created mass club issues like it has to be a way you can help and work with your branch at the same time retiring more than fifty percent of their furloughed employees or adults with a lot of characters like hello Kitty Wonder Woman Batman and Superman we have an eight month old and when my wife and I put on our Batman or Wonder Woman masks he reaches for the colors that has a familiar logo can help your child more east club a passion project with added and for every mass that's purchased we donate a medical grade version two first responders in partnership with the first responders children's need and creating a bright spot family having some fun some levity and then mixing them with information Trevor says that they have donated nearly one hundred thousand masks already any clearly this idea of wearing a branded logo mask and also doing some good while you're in the process of that is really resonate yeah it's a win win I was even saying I know kids it's scary to them it's scary to me sometimes when you see people because it is jarring seeing circle in masks all of a sudden what tools can parents use when they talk about this with their children well doctor Taylor says it's important to impress upon your kids that they're taking care of themselves they're taking care of others this is a safety precaution just like wearing a helmet when you ride a bike or buckling your seat belt when you're in the car and she also says that it's important to have these honest conversations with your kids just be up front with them lead by example when you're comfortable wearing your own mask children see that and they're more at ease as well makes sense and kids are certainly resilient aerial thank you so much for bringing us this we appreciate it for gonna turn out to Dr Jen Ashton for some thoughts on this for some perspective here I mean we have to remember it was just recently that the CDC made a major change of revising their guidelines recommending face coverings for the general public not to protect the person wearing the mask but to protect others so as the saying we're so used to hearing here in New York City it's not about me it's about a week but here's the interesting thing from a medical and scientific standpoint remember that the data on face coverings or masks protecting you was done in a lab right that's why we say in a hospital setting we put masks on sick people with a different kind of mask on health care workers but there's a big difference between scientific research done in a lab setting and those done in a real life setting so we're seeing one of major Boston Medical Center has dropped the rate of its staff cases of covert nineteen dramatically once they instituted a policy where everyone staff patients and visitors started wearing masks so we'll see how it plays out in our country Dr Ashton thank you and when we come back the army of volunteers in one city working hard to help frontline heroes shine these special continues after this about half of all men will experience ET or PT fact both E.

"governor kemp" Discussed on WSB-AM

"California at large we know it's true and in LA county what what governor Kemp is doing is going on offense governor can we're not gonna let this thing destroy us we're not gonna let this thing I mean we're sitting around and allowing this to happen I it's actually worse than that we are doing this to ourselves this is the thing that just great sun may under the guise that we're trying to do what keep people from getting sick the recovery rate remains ninety eight percent you're probably sick and tired of me saying that but overall what bothers me fox is that how long are we going to sit down how long are we going to shelter in place to what end well rush we have to bend the curve on bad yeah bending the curve for what reason make sure the hospitals are not overrun with a bunch of people infected at the same time but we're eventually going to have to come out of our hobbles aren't we the hobbits you're gonna eventually have to start looking for the ring they what it just seems like this is an entirely our defensive posture in and and I know the people in charge of the could make the case for that but it just how would you would try to do more research bushel we could even shoot well I'm not I'm I'm not epidemiologist but the things that we've been told we're gonna wait for vaccine remain never get one of those most viruses do not have a bag anyway that's that's if you have detected that I'm getting close to saying something but not saying it's that I'm not holding anything back I'm not holding back I think it's gigantic conspiracy theory I'm not holding back and I think George Soros is behind us a destroyed capitalism I'm not suggesting that all of this has been done purposely destroyed trump distribu S. economy because we were getting too far away from globalist we're destroying the globalist agenda weaver's brexit nausea with the world was moving away from globalism and now it's not I'm not suggesting this is because of that but the people who are opposed to us having some of the people the people who are proponents of globalism are not unhappy right now folks and the people that very overtly opposed brexit the UK leaving the European Union they're not I'm happy that all that's been delayed share with your a couple stories here is one from Kevin much color writing at town hall Katie Pavlich by the way is the editor town hall and the title of the piece antibody testing proves that we've been had not much of this I already discussed with you yesterday when governor Cuomo announced that two point seven million people in New York I've tested positive or have been affected that have the antibodies that two point seven with that that number alone is probably low and that number lowers the mortality number considerably M. is that the more people the more we learn about this hi your suspicions rise that something about this isn't right who do you trust right now to tell you anything about this do you believe exclude me because I know you all trust me but I'm not on the just take is there anybody out there national TV national media in your home is there anybody that you trust when they tell you anything about this because I think more and more people would ensure that no anybody who do you trust not leave you so you don't trust anything until you go out and read it in the family can for you don't you think there is no single source authority that you'd like including a doctor of five G. including this and the Scottish queen this is so so none of the people the coronavirus task force trump trump is not gonna fire vouchers that that be worse than that whining about trump telling people to drink Lysol every single time this is why the trust I think is waning every single time that there is the hand of god knows or hope it gets beaten down every time there is they have a good like the governor George could open up look what happens except the governor Colorado opening up it didn't happen here but that's because he's Democrat gay has a husband and his adopted some kids is untouchable but whatever the good news happens to be look at the good new is of the surveys from Stanford and USC about Santa Clara county in Los Angeles county those are ignored if they're not attempted to be discredited you would think everybody would want the latest information to get to the truth of this I got a note from a friend today dear Mr Limbaugh we were well on the path to take the world out of globalism we were headed in a much better direction it was the desire of people worldwide to change the direction of the world brexit and trump selection and that the now winning three elections will all prove to me Mr Limbaugh that when people were given the choice to be run by a small cabal of elites will run by themselves they chose themselves they rejected the small Kaballah believes in Israel in the UK and in the United States and there seems to be no way to stop the will of the people but boy did they try they try destroying trump for the made up lie about colluding with Russia they tried to take on capital as a way of getting a drop they try to impeach trump they've done everything they could they tried to stall and delay and ram rod brexit into the dirt so that it didn't happen and then look what did happen hello whoa Han virus and now every thing three years of economic growth American independence the flight from globalism the reestablishment of the American manufacturing sector now look at it I imagine that this note that I got from a friend is resonating with a lot of and this is the reason why is because so much of this it doesn't make sense and you've heard the old adage well usually the simplest explanation is the right explanation but people just have this is just the same soul mind bogglingly incomprehensible the people have a tough time accepting it how bad is it Mr Limbaugh that of all the things are people are having breakdowns over Georgia opening central parlors for crying out loud is there not a lot more going on in this country to have a heart burn overt and whether or not they're going to open a task to partners in Georgia and I understand them too people don't react what so ever when their jobs are taken away from home when their livelihoods are closed up on them when there's no one in sight when they don't get their SBA money when they don't get their employment no no reaction at all but you open a tab to parlor in Georgia and get out of the way for all hell that's coming in your direction this people get livid led by of course the drive by media now as Esther this yes from Kevin McDonald antibody testing proves that we have been ahead and here is his point the antibody number some governor Cuomo scream they scream the virus was in America long before January governor Newsom has ordered autopsies the people that died in December to save us some traces some unknown virus or illness because it's becoming well I would say abundantly clear but people really question why how long has this thing been around how how how is it a two point seven million people in New York are infected and most are not symptomatic did California we've been told for example that the the true mortality rate death rate in New York at seven point four percent that that would be worse than anything you can imagine seven point four but that means seven and a half out of every one hundred people died and that's what we've been operating on because those have been the numbers given to us by every model not a one of which has been right yet we were told there would be hundreds of thousands dead we were told at first two point two million people would die and I'm gonna tell you that number was never valid that number comes from the from the UK modeller but got Nile Ferguson mail Ferguson and that number was always predicated on if nobody did anything that number came out after we had started social distancing and then every poll every every model after that factors social distance the two point two million people dead figure should have never been used but you know why it was because it would allow experts to say look how well we've done why it was going to be two point two million dead because of our policies it's only X. thousand that's why that number has never been valid his original number for deaths in the U. K. projected five hundred thousand then Mr Ferguson plugs in a variable he plugs in social distancing what if everybody keeps six feet away from each other and the two point two million number they came a hundred thousand in the United States and twenty thousand in the U. K. then it miraculously became two hundred and forty thousand in the United States all of this from models which haven't been right we were told that this would be worse than the flu the flu has still recorded more deaths to date in this past flu season even with all the CDC has instructed medical people to start counting influenza heart disease pulmonary or respiratory drug overdose and car crash deaths as covert ninety did you know that it's not just local coroners the CDC has instructed medical personnel according to Mr McCalla here your record influenza heart disease pulmonary respiratory drug overdose car crash deaths as covert nineteen yes if they can find a trace of the virus within the body it's a difference and died from it and died with it they're they're padding the numbers upward on covert nineteen death then Mr McCalla says we were told we had to operate in the anaconda me we had a goal in a solitary confinement we had a divorce ourselves from normal life because this situation would range beyond any previous pandemic we were told that this virus with eight hundred forty six thousand current confirmed cases was worse than the swine flu that broke out on Obama's watch that infected sixty million people M. hospitalized eight hundred thousand in the United States alone we were conveniently not told that president Obama had authorized three point seven million US tax dollars to be used at the Wuhan institute of virology to study corona viruses in bats in two thousand fifteen did you know that you did not have a certainly do you believe me okay simply well this is from Kevin McCullough's piece today antibody testing proves that we have been had early in the Obama administration authorized three point seven million US dollars to be granted to the Wuhan institute of virology due study corona viruses in bats in two thousand fifteen what do you say I'm not just not just giving you information I don't know what it says okay what does it say right Obama granted money the Wuhan lab that was but that but it didn't come until I have to keep telling is uncomfortable absolutely came from animals okay anyway now these truth turned out to be true this marks the death rate in New York state is not seven point four percent it's actually point seven five percent it is going to go lower and I have take a brief time.

"Joining me right now after the big press conference yesterday. The governor of the state of Georgia Governor Kim. How are you a morning air? So ill let me I. I got all sorts of questions for you in. It's the one I'm getting the most overwhelming from people is. Why is this the time to re-open well thank you know? Look we continue to follow the science and the data The advice of Dr to me and you know the folks are battling this on the ground every day. But it's also what what we're seeing out there and talking with hospital. Ceo's are big capacity is continuing to go down. We have the ability to to handle you. Know the so-called surge that we thought was going to be may I now? The mile was changed and said that the surge is actually behind us. We're certainly seeing that in places like Albany With the data there's been flattening. Our emergency room visits down Reports of flu like illnesses declining. So all of these things are getting us to move into that phase one Category that the president taught the bow for opening up America. And I would I would just tell your listeners. To this is not just throwing the keys out there to every business in the state and open em back up the stipulations with opening or still out there many businesses have been able to operate under those guidelines before yesterday before this Friday this is simply allowing the businesses that we actually closed when we were going into the peak to try to make sure we had enough hospital beds and the state to reopen with minimum basic operations. Now there are some like in middle Georgia for example in in making the local hospital. Authorities and health officials are saying that they're surge isn't gonNA come until sometime in May Is that deviating from what you guys are here? Is that contemplated in in this Slow open well. I'm not really following the model that they're looking at. I know our models are are not you know not pointing to that. I'd have to look at making specifically We've seen surges and other places you know. We had a one of the worst hot spots in the country and all bidding and we handled that situation while it was not fun going through. We put a lot of resources on the ground from the national art. We've stood up sheltered hospital facilities that phoebe north And actually phoebe is taken patients from Tift and right now because they have their eyes to. You Bet there that are full where you know week. Ten days ago. They were diverting patients to other places that are hospital capacity. Now is as good as it's been? Plus we have the additional facilities that were dropping enforce places around the state as well as the two hundred extra beds at the World Congress Center that we open the other day. Now one of the things I I have spent really two hours pointing this out that you were assailed in March by number people. Who said you need to listen to the experts and When Dr to me who is is our resident expert in Georgia's that it was time to shut down the state you did and Dr to me. I heard of the press conference that she thinks. If we keep these parameters place the state can be opening anelle. Suddenly people are attacking you for listening to the same experts and there seems to be a level of a no win situation that you're in with people that moving forward seen some of the rhetoric out there that You've got newspapers media outlets and partisans that anyone who dies or gets this virus from here on out. Looks like they're prepared to blame you for it. Well th- that comes with the territory. Eric I'm not worried about the pandemic politics that we're seeing from some. I'm following the science and the data From a lot of people a lot of conversations I've had with people that are living on the ground every day like your hospital. Ceo's that You know been dealing with this for much. But they're the ones saying that. Look major step forward. Is the right one to take a doctor to me. You know. She's one of the best in the country. If not the best in my opinion you know I've had at linked conversations with her as well as my staff has had with her looking at the data and the bottles and how the numbers changed and I think a lot of people don't really realize the numbers that were posted every day. You know those tests may have been taken five or six days ago so the data's always trailing what's really happening on the ground. Well we're seeing on the ground is is where we WANNA be. And that's that's coming down now. I realize we may see more cases. Come up that's going to be the nature of put more people back out into the workforce but we're also a lot better prepared to handle this if you remember back on the guidance early on to do the shelter and places and to do you know the fifteen days to stop the spread the president the vice president we're talking about it was to keep our hospitals over on. We are in very good position right now will where that will not happen and I would urge my fellow. They continue to follow the order that we still haven't placed the shelter in place order practice. Strict social distancing. You know don't travel unless you need to But but there's also other medical and social ramifications of these business owners as employees of not working not been able to provide for the families that made the strain that we're seeing on our food banks in the state right now people literally Getting position where they can't feed their families. You know their their health ramifications with that on the mental health side. We're seeing increased trauma in our emergency room and I would just say all the naysayers. They're not worried about that part of it but I have to be because that is something that will be detrimental to our society. Not just well. We battle this virus there for generations. Well I guess. In that regard we keep hearing people like the professor at Harvard. The other day saying that we may have to shelter in place until there's a tillers vaccine or someone else say and we may have to do it. All over again is. Is there a presupposition here? An underlying belief that at this point we were not going to eradicate the virus. We need to start trying to figure out ways that we can as a society go about our lives and in mitigated in suppress the viruses. Best weekend while doing so well I would tell you listeners. That understand you know people from Smart people from Harvard getting quoted in newspaper articles daughter to me also went to Harvard and she has a lot of real ones man and she is lockstep and what we're doing so she feels very confident that was. He's confident two things. She knows number. One the Georgia headed here to advise. And it's worked. We have health flat curve. And I'M GONNA continue to do so. People will continue to act responsibly. But she also you know we've got to deal with the situation we got. There is not going to be a cure. That's GONNA be your next week or next month There's not GonNa be a vaccine. It's going to be here yet next year next month but we now have the things in place to meet the gating criteria to move into phase one of the reopening of America and part of that is for us to be doing a better job of testing which I've talked extensively. I mean extensively about that yesterday at the press conference of what the National Guard is doing. That is also gonNA free up Dr Teaming and her team to do the contact tracing that we need to have in place to be able to run this thing down you know when we get a positive of someone in being able to contain the spread like we weren't able to do and we didn't really understand or oh you know one how quickly the viruses rating but number two the that. We didn't even know it was here. Man I'm convinced from talking to healthcare folks and other people that there's a lot of people that had the corona virus back in January that didn't test positive for the flu did test positive for strip couldn't figure out what was wrong with them. You know they. They ended up coming the other end of it or will now but they probably the chrome bars. You know it's funny. You should say that because I've had more than one person either in this program or the or my other program have called in and said that something similar happened to them or or someone in their family. Mid-january flu pneumonia. Everything tested negative for everything in end had come into contact with people who come from abroad and yet couldn't get a covert nineteen test and there seems to be this growing growing belief that that's that's the case. Now it before I let you get out of here. I feel obligated. Ask you this question. The budget left unresolved for the coming year. Clear tax revenue strain on the state Given what's going on what your present thinking on on where we're going ahead with that. Well it's not going to be a good one that's for sure. I mean we taking it on the T. chant from our revenue perspective with a lot more about that here in the next few days when we see the updated numbers for the current month they were in you know where the date on revenues is always trailing a month bind so last month was actually fairly decent We expect this to be terrible but we gotta balance our budget Had some initial conversations Lieutenant Governor Dunkin Speaker Austin Our team has been talking to chairman England and Chairman Tillery Budget Appropriations chairs the house. And the Senate and we're actually going to be meeting again this week to start get this conversation started and really start digging down as to how we're going to deal with that and then we still. Erica's not have a lot of what's coming from the federal stimulus out there and how that will affect the stakes. They've sent us a lot of money to deal with the cost of of Kobe virus. But that doesn't deal with the revenue shortfall. So we're GONNA have some tough choices to make in the in the future. Well Listen I.

"Joining me by phone away from the theology of the matter to the heart of the matter is the governor of the state of Georgia. Brian Kill will. You have been really busy these last few days these last few weeks. Good Morning Good Morning so let me ask you. You've put in place on people like my wife for example who has cancer now sheltering in place and not leaving the house not even getting on her motorcycle today she she's being good honoring the order and yet there's this continuing cry from urban sections of the state that we need to put the entire state on lockdown. Yeah Look Tell your wife you can certainly rider motorcycle to get any pregnant teenage. We just WANNA make sure seats protecting ourselves and the most vulnerable to this virus which is certainly the elderly those that have you know the new assistant medical issues but you know the various A lot of clamoring for you know people mad because what I did yesterday and people. That didn't think I'd get went far enough. But we've been following the data And looking at this from a holistic view from a state perspective and I just felt like it was time to take a little bit more stringent action. Bastogne a Lotta people unfortunately were not paying attention to what the president the vice president and the Federal Task Force. And we've been telling them to do even though there's a lot of Georgia there. I mean people every day and that are out there. That are doing the right thing. They're teleworking they're using this thing. They're practicing the basic. You know hand sanitation hygiene to keep people safe and wiping surfaces down but unfortunately people that are still just going with the ballers There's been people that's been gathering you know In in public places where you can get into a super spreader situations you have. Some is it advises that goes against what we're asking on. Stay home if you're sick and and just create a Pan a pandemic in a certain area around the state we've seen that in all many quite honestly because we believe super spreader wanted to a funeral and then just took off in there. So the major league playing will help us be able to deal with that. A little more authority but it also leads and Quinlan's left layer if If people aren't doing what they need to be done we can take further action. I think it's a good you an approach for where we are. Based on the data the number of cases that we have compared to others around the country. Well and when you look at the data. It's my understanding in. Correct me if I'm wrong here but you guys have been model. Lean How this is spreading in if I'm right based on other people I've talked to that you'll really been surprised with what you're seeing that everything does seem to be tracking as as the healthcare experts expected. It is and you know we're going to continue to see the number of cases go and unfortunately we'll see the number of deaths go up because you just this this viruses this deadly with the older population and medically fragile. That's why we did the filter in place for them to try to protect those individuals. They're the ones that would end up in hospital on a respirator. in creating. Uc's there so two problems is helping. Keep them safe. It also alleviates pressure if everybody follows the directive to take pressure off or hospitals. But you know. Call the vice-president yesterday in the front of our staff forces. The president dog adverts and saying that forty percent of the cases in the United States are in New York City forty percent of the new positive test results per day or coming out in New York. And if you take out you know what's happening in California Washington and Oregon Illinois and a few other states that are ahead of us you know really when you spread the rest of those cases and you know what the states have especially in the South East. We have an here. We've got to deal with but it's not at the point where we just have to completely wreck our economy By having a complete lockdown and nobody doing anything that that that to me is well create problems for industries that need to be open to produce the food supply and the packaging for the food supply. People are going to be moving around. You know getting to the hospital providing medical services and things of that nature so this viruses Baz. We hate to say it. It's here unbelievable. It's been here since December January or January before we even knew it and we can't just you know crawl apartment somewhere and hide from. We gotta take this thing had only got to be smart. The communities gotTa stop it flat curve by following these best practices and when they get sick calling the doctor not showing up and spreading it is emergency room or the patient waiting room And just ride it out at home if he had symptoms. And obviously if you're you know if you're getting very sick or even on that path you need to call the doctor or get to the hospital. The that's that's you know. South Korea did a good job of that. We've been watching what they did with China. Did where watching what time in Italy right now. And we're continuing to watch what other states are doing. Think if you look around the South East right now You know we're lined up the pretty much the same the logging neighbors and their spots. It has been You know something that people can deal with not changes in the future. And I'll look at other things but we're continuing to watch the data's will well you know? I noticed for example the JC editorial. Today calling for you to do more there. There seems to be an urban rural. Divide here between South Georgia. Which doesn't want to shut down the economy in areas where the virus relly. It can't spread because people already are at distance from each other and versus the Metro area. In I'm assuming just based on what's happened that if individual counties in the Metro area do wanNA lock themselves down. You're not opposed to those county governments making those decisions not at all and I have the same take to president. Trump and vice president has had their support in the nation's governors. They know that they're on the front lines of this fight. We're living breathing it. I know that they are every day. But we're actually experiencing it in our individual state. They're supporting you know Gavin newsom. And what he's doing they're supporting Cuomo in New York with what he's doing in their support every other governor no matter what they do. And that's the take I've taken with local government. You know. Talk to the mayor bombs several times yesterday. Stand the reasoning behind the order that she did last night I told her I would support that. You know she's she's the mayor of the city and his is closer to that situation that I am at some ways and I respect that in the thing thing is going. I was on a call this morning with a lot of officials The County Commission Sayers in a lot of my air throw the whole area surrounding going to count it because they have a EC down there because of the hot spot in the super spreader issue. We've got a lot of people on the ground. Support them to stand up additional hospital beds quarantine sites and doing the Epi work along with the CDC. But I encourage the mayor's I said look there's an issue down there. I applaud you all for for taking the initiative from a reasonable approach to keep it contained. And if you take action today you know to shelter in place or whatever else they decide you know what they're working group that I will support that and I think that's the right way to approach it right now because what's happening down. There might not necessarily be you know what you need to be doing out and county or or over you know in in one of our South Eastern counties up in North West or North East well in that regard. How's the supply situation for hospitals? Right now I know commissioner keying in Insurance Commissioners Officer Making sure supply chains are open. But are we worrying about critical shortages? Right now well. We got a great team working on that homer. Brian the Director General Cards Who has the low experience during the National Guard? General's General King is our insurance commissioner. They've all dealt with these type. You know responses before obviously about the virus but they know how to commandeer supplies and get them out and orderly way the center piece for communication he commands that are coming out and they've been sourcing a lot of equipment. We're taking you know inventories of all the hospitals in contact with them daily. You know we've sent supplies down to all area. We've been mad and other places where there is a short supply and we're monitoring that situation I I will say two things. I think one the splashing tea. Our fingers crossed. But I think it's opening back up out of China. Manufacturing plants are coming back online. We're having a Lotta people reaching out saying they can get mask and other PP equipment. We've got large orders in for that as well. We're getting shit for sure. Today from the strategic national stockpile the that theme is releasing to us that. We'll have a lot of people in it. So that'll help sewer up our our needs there and then we continue the through three hospital. Ceo's either myself or my staff and the last couple of days and we know we definitely have some issues. Ella Metro area And probably will in the future but also other hospitals more than that had a lot of empty beds base because they're not doing elective surgery so it's freed up some resources there so they are like absolutely in great shape and are very comfortable with the situation is but we're preparing for what it may look like two weeks from our mom come up with a lot of additional resources to stand up makeshift hospitals and quarantine sites. And so I feel like we're in a good place there. We're not finished. We gotta do some more of that but we are literally working on that alley. Well listen I appreciate you stopping by filling people in and I know no easy time right here in appreciate your leadership on this one..

"Am Eric Erickson. This is at Lantis evening news on WSB stock market up today, the S and P five hundred new highs there. It's up significantly and man Facebook was up today. Amazon was up today net flicks Google, which is now called alphabet, which is a stupid name. It's up just, just great stuff today in the stock market, and it's all on the heels of a rumor that there may be a rate reduction by the fed the best person asked about this sort of stuff is my buddy. Chris burn's? Welcome, chris. How are you? I'm good. Love alphabet is to put name somebody. You know what other stupid name truest? I kept pushing for grin God's Bank. About. They paid a million dollars for truce. What, what a stupid name. Yes, I'm going to truest park, which is a truth e- park. Yeah. It just anyway that's why you're here. We could complain about that all night. So what's up with the stock market rally today? It's fascinating because nobody's ever unhappy. Right. When when their four one K goes up and investments, go up. But the reality is the reason for this is because of expectations that the fed is gonna lower interest rates aren't someone that sits stuff on a regular basis, basically, when the economy is doing really, well, fed tends to increase interest rates to keep inflation in check and keep moving heating when they commies not doing well they lower interest rates, try to bring more money into the market and into place that the economy recovers and ten years ago when we had the great recession we saw interest rates drop to basically zero right? And then we went into this whole quantitative easing thing where we trillions of dollars of our own. Here the issue since then, we've slowly been raising rates why because the economy has been fantastic. So the idea of lowering rates super exciting for the market, because it just means more money out there. And so businesses are going to grow etcetera. But on a little concerned because we haven't raised rates that much. And so you have to wonder if we start dropping rates, when, when honestly, things still pretty darn good and the economy. What happens when they don't when we don't have any room left to lower rates anymore? Right. That's, that's my, that's not the most popular perspective. But that's, that's kind of how I think, and I think you're right on that and I'm no expert on it. But it's always been my understanding here in, I guess my question for you is, do you think maybe the fittest scenes on the horizon? That's making them nervous. They are. I mean there's an interesting reality anytime you look at that you can extrapolate it anyway, you want the jobs report that just came out. For instance shows still this remarkable long record breaking streak of low unemployment, but it's a little bit less than last month. So people are saying, well, hey, look, you know, things are slowing down. Maybe unemployment will start going up even though that actually has. Happened yet. Right. The other reality here is, as we know, Washington plays a big part in that is supposed to be a political. They're supposed to be kind of removed. But resident Trump has been very, very vocal about how he feels that policy should act in that they should be lowering rates. And so you have pretty strong pressure on the fed to do so. And I'm not actually saying they're kind of an allusion lose here because if they who are far more intelligent than I am. If they really do see economic problems in the coming on the horizon, and they wanna lower rates. That's fine. But it's gonna be hard for it not to be viewed by most people as a political move because there's been such outspoken push for them to do that, right. Yeah. I I'm the position their concerns me. Okay. Chris were so now I got another question for you here. Obviously from a consumer standpoint the fed cuts rates, the dot market, skyrockets, everything looks good. But obviously, there may be some warning signs out there. If. You're a consumer right now looking at all this. What things do you think consumers need to be thinking about a great question? Because honestly, no matter what your political leaning year. The real key is, how do you react proactively, because you don't have any control over the key is this. There's two sides of this coin. The first is man, if you're someone who is looking to take out to buy a new home, etc. There was a lot of concern that mortgage rates, we're going to be going up and this really lays that..

"We need to talk about the democratic effort. Now, that is official in Georgia to try to take back the Georgia house of representatives. Is they're coming on strong. All of this drip, drip, drip, in the media of these abortion stories is related to it before we get there, though. The search is on for new insurance Commissioner a lot of people are wondering why governor Kemp did not initiate immediately a commission and I haven't talked to the governor's office. But I know the answer even without talking to him because it's in the state constitution. The governor cannot immediately appoint someone for one of these statewide offices. A commission has to be set up in order to investigate whether or not that person the existing persons capable of doing their job. Well, the existing person Jim Beck already stepped aside from the job. He didn't leave the office though. So he's still getting his paycheck. He's still getting his benefits. He's just not there. So, but the governor because of a weird quirk in the Georgia constitution couldn't immediately appoint is replacement. He's got to have a committee set up the committee. He's got to confirm that the guys incapable of doing his job, therefore, then the committee must find some names for the governor to pick. So that is going to happen. There will be a new insurance Commissioner of the governor will make that pick when we come back, though, the disaster Bill has been signed, or at least gone to the president, and the Democrats plotting to take back over the Georgia legislature.

"But it's still, you know, there are many ways to take you get these bills to eventually the supreme court, which is ultimately that's just the strategy at this point because the supreme court is completely stacked or you know, it's tilted towards conservatives. And in Georgia, you know, Coca Cola Amazon, the writers guild they were saying like, they would leave the state if quote unquote, governor Kemp signed the Bill into law day C L U, so they're gonna sue. But it's just it's handmade. Right. It's troubling. It's so starving to think that these people have no ability to determine what they want to do with their own bodies. Especially in the case. Of. I mean, I mean, this is an extreme example, but an eleven year old child bread who is going to have to relive this trauma for the at least the next nine months, or however long it takes for this pregnancy to go on then to have the child, you know, there are a lot of organizations that you can donate to and look into because it's this is going to be very it's a it's a very significant issue that I think a lot of people need to keep their eyes on because these are the kinds of rights that are just slipping through our fingers right now. I mean, and this is a reproductive rights, especially are are such an important thing. And it's it's wild to think too. When a lot of people are actually pulled about the heartbeat Bill. They're like, oh, I think that makes sense. Well, if it's a heartbeat than yeah. But when they actually explained that it's like six weeks in the time. It takes even realize you're pregnant there's a significant amount of people go. Oh, actually. No, no, no. That that's terrible. And it's not like these bills were presented like do. You wanna kill a baby with a heartbeat. Right. Right. No. Right. And it's exits. But it's also like, oh, but by the time these people find out their past the window where they could have an abortion anyway. So kind of this, you know, catch twenty two so can people other than in Georgia, go to other states to seek them on the state laws, but in Georgia. I mean yet like they will like they will throw the book at you. And not to mention they will even investigate miscarriages. She's crow my so if they determine that a pregnant person did something that led to the mar the miscarriage they would be jailed right one though. And I mean, I don't know how you are going to criminally investigate someone having a miscarriage Ray. But these are a trauma, you go through having a miscarriage, and then you have to like you have signing the cop sucking. To be investigating like what? Whether he thinks you did the right with a bible in his hand rate. Jesus yet again. So these are this is what's going on. And it's definitely spreading through different states. But I mean, this is the kind of thing that a lot of people were worried about in. This is what you know when the second break having gone on the supreme court, and everyone was like this is what's going to happen. They're going to find their way to do it. And they go, okay..

"Very well and sounded awful who doesn't matter. Christen nielsen. Barbie barbie. And so then again, let's pivot over to Elijah Cummings just all the shit that we've spent the last year being like is there. Just going to get away with this. Right. So people are finally slowly the process is starting to unfold where they can ask about it. So this instance, Elijah Cummings the chairman of the oversight committee and outset they want to look into the Georgia gubernatorial election now, and he's requested documents from Mr. camp governor Kemp and the other interested parties about what the fuck happened over there because everyone saw pretty plainly that there were a lot of fucking problems on election day for people try, especially people of color trying to vote in that election, where they said, you know, black black voters had to wait in line for hours because they said, oh, there's a we don't have enough voting machines right to try and just stop people out and guy who was overseeing the entire election making sure that it was fair because he was the what was he the secretary of state secretary of state. Was running the election and would not recuse himself from running the election. Exactly. And then when you look at the numbers Stacey Abrams came within fifty five thousand votes of winning and eighteen thousand from a runoff, so naturally Elijah Cummings is asking provide that he provide communications related to quo- voter purges about the them putting applications on hold or putting them in pending status. Just all kinds of these other things and also request information regarding quote, the ethical or legal obligations of simultaneously running for governor while overseeing state elections. Because like, yeah, you're gonna have to explain that. Like, tell me why you thought you didn't have to, you know, remove yourself registration so oversight on its way. But again, I don't want to get too excited about it. But I'm just glad that now we are in an environment where these kinds of things are being looked at about. Yeah. And not just like glossed over. I mean like. That's okay. It's okay. I mean, it is truly insane. How much they think? People. Don't have commonsense. Right. Of course, we're going to like you think it's okay to run for office. While also overseeing the election running for right? Like who? Without commonsense win. See why this ethical immoral issue will of your an old white, man. In a world where you could just do whatever the. So I think there's a lot of lot of confidence going around is insane. Do it. That's what makes me think that there is just like a fundamental difference. Like because in my brain that just doesn't even compute, but they are well there where does for whatever reason is something up here. I think either way like on both sides. You're always gonna have people who have that like literally by any means necessary. Even if it means cheating and fraud. Right. But it seems like the concentration is more on the right than it is on the left it plan. They have a completely biased non-objective feedback system. That is telling them shit that you know, whatever they wanna hear so or like helping them rationalize. Why what they're doing is actually a famous person who starts surrounding themselves with yes-men. They start losing touch with reality. Like that is the entire like conservative side of the country. Right. And then look your sophomore albums. Garbage. Right. That's why it's so rare to have a fire sophomore. Let me tell you something man for all the conservatives out there. Good conservative radio come on over to coach. About church church racial drafts. Right. Exactly. I know you like that. We like. Yeah. You gotta love talking about race. Conservatives love talking about those black afloat so freshman progressive on Capitol Hill are starting to rally behind Ilhan, Omar and basically backing her from these accusations of anti-semitism that we talked about earlier in the week..

"Governor Kemp, she's given herself till the end of March to decide for NPR news. I'm hurt in. Lanta? That's the song by j rock used in the Abrahams campaign for governor. This is NPR news. And you're listening to morning edition on KCRW. Now this from KCRW knows final Super Bowl. Ratings figures are scheduled to be out today with Nielsen television expected to say that numbers for Super Bowl. Fifty three dropped to the games lowest level since two thousand nine KCRW, Steve Chia takers reports Los Angeles is the second biggest TV market in the country. Boston is number nine. So you would think the interest would be high. But preliminary figures show that viewership slipped again for the fourth straight year in all about one hundred million viewers watched the game on all platforms last year that number was one hundred three million the biggest audience for a Super Bowl was back in two thousand fifteen when it was the Seahawks who lost to the patriots CBS charged north of five million dollars for a spot during the game. So ratings are. Obviously important. Not surprisingly the biggest numbers came in L A on KCBS and in Boston on CBS affiliate WBZ. There is one bright spot though, live streaming of the event was up nearly a third over last year. As a matter of fact, that's really the state of television programming these days lower numbers on the small screen and increasing numbers on the really small screen for KCRW. Nice Steve Jacobs..

Also, you know, obviously, the the major news stations WSB for sure to keep his we're we're gonna Bank cases will be they we just won't really have paticipation precipitation. We get until it actually happens very early tomorrow morning in the problem is going to be when the temperatures start dropping. So, you know, I would just tell people to be very cautious in the morning, try to do everything that they can this afternoon and tonight, you know, to your call, and and take those things it is a fast storm. So believe is gonna come in. And go out quit is this at the tension for black guys, you know, tomorrow through through the day or or tomorrow born, and you know, midday when the temp. Start dropping. And then you know, the question is when will that ball out, and we'll have time to do that. Well, yeah, I I saw the weather forecast. And how the temperatures are dropping after everything runs through. And all I can think is I mean, even driving home from Atlanta. No water stays on the interstate crossing the interstate going into the drainage ditch. I can only imagine that there's going to be a lot of potential for that dice over as the temperatures drop. This is the weather pattern like if you go outside right now might wonder what in the world we're doing, but this weather pattern was similar to two thousand fourteen where it just happened so quickly, and it's almost like a flash threes. Ing affect when this, you know, polar front comes through if you will. And it if the roadways don't have a daylight hours to get dry before the freezing occurs us, get the black ice. And we certainly don't want good lot. We had back in two thousand fourteen especially this week with the crease traffic of the Super Bowl being in town. That is true will govern look, I know you've got the press conference, six o'clock. I appreciate you stopping by here and giving her money heads up and we'll keep the word out for. You. Sounds good. Thanks so much. Thanks very much. That was governor Kemp as you heard him say that is the big concern tomorrow. The rain comes in early. And then the temperatures are dropping throughout the day. And you know, just just when I drive home. After work. A lot of times the water is still crossing the roads if the road seventy heated up enough from sunlight to help with peration whatnot that stuff's going to get icy in the later part of the day make it a difficult to get back home.

Your didn't that a quick question for you? I call it you program about it about an hour ago when you were talking about voting for a bad person, this kind of thing. So I was just curious because I listen to you back in twenty sixteen was wondering, what your opinion how your Pinon has changed of Trump twenty sixteen to current just based on what you were. Yeah. Saying earlier, so you know, listen, I I think the guy doesn't have great character. And I would like to support a president who has better character than he has. I realized that all people are centers, but to actually revel in low character, I think is a problem at the same time. I think is administration has done a number of things that I like from judicial picks to regulatory rollbacks to fighting the bureaucracy to a lot of his foreign policy than some things. I don't like either the the tariffs the the willful. Let's get out of Syria. Tomorrow sort of stuff that has had to be rolled back. A lot of stuff that said it'd be rolled back. My great concern with the president is is a character issue in. I just got an Email from somebody Luther just emailed me. I have been troubled by your repeated concern for Trump's character. I felt over time the need to remind you of your biblical heritage. I we're all centers fall short of the glory..

He's also local city or town Commissioner and she served in government in her town for many many years, she was caught ripping down GOP candidate signs specifically for governor Kemp and for another state wide GOP candidate, she was caught on film, and instead of apologizing she fond embrace the action she was taking and encouraged other people to also take downsides because she said that based on the location they were placed in it technically violated city codes. And because of that you were allowed to do this. I turned totally wrong. And that city you think she would know this right to supposedly a city Commissioner good understanding of the city rules, but but the the the city code actually specified that the only people who are able to take down the if. They were reported and dean that they were violating laws were specific employees. So she was still in the wrong by taking them down. And the fact that she was only targeting GOP, supposedly misplaced really shows you wear her biases. I.
