When he goes to Minnesota, he is going to find a state that maybe a little bit more difficult to get that looked like it was even in 2016 he lost to Hillary Clinton by 1.5 points back. Then, now the real clear politics average of polls showing Joe Biden with a 10 point lead. A recent one by ABC News Washington Post had Biden up by 16 so That may be, ah little bit of an outlier we don't know. But the president believes that if he spends enough time in Minnesota, he will be able to flip the state that would make him the first Republican to win it Since 1972 and Richard Nixon. I mean, even in his 49 state win in 1980 for Ronald Reagan couldn't do. It's Fox's

How Party Leaders Get Ready for the Election in Pivotal Pennsylvania County
"Pennsylvania, a working class area in the northern northwestern most corner of the state. Has long been solid territory for Democrats. Then in 2016, Donald Trump eked out a narrow victory. Now in 2020, the county is again seen as pivotal NPR national political correspondent Don Can you sat down with Republican and Democratic leaders in the county? Jim words. A 41 year old college professor, was named Erie County Democratic Chair two years ago. He wasn't in charge when Trump won here. Still, he's fixated on the numbers just 1967 votes, so a really narrow margin and so for me for the last couple of years, it's been staring at those numbers. There are so many what ifs. What if Hillary Clinton had run a better campaign? What if there had been better turnout in the city of here? But words also gives the trump campaign credit for its use of digital targeting for getting people to make personal contact with friends to find new voters for trump factor in their social media presence in their online presence, and the kind of targeting they did, in some cases with the help of foreign actors and others, it had a very significant psychological role. What says the Democrats goal this year is not to mimic that Trump campaign. It's to build on the enthusiasm Democrats showed in the 2018 midterms and to reach beyond the traditional base. To that end, Erie County Democrats have set up field offices out in rural communities. Words talked as he unloaded boxes of lawn signs from the back of his jeep bed once not jobs. We've made a lot of efforts over the last two years to really talk to connect with rural voters. And these offices or an opportunity to help us put some roots down in places that we should have been for a long time. As for Democratic strongholds, voters are highly motivated this year, he says, and having a woman of color Kamala Harris on the ticket helps boost energy as well. He adds that with co vid driving unemployment up to 14.8% in the county. That should also give some blue collar voters who backed Trump. Last time. Second thoughts now to the GOP effort stickers these, you know, ceramic coasters styles, you know whatever, and hats. We've just gone through. That's county chairmen viral Salman 73, year old retired school superintendent and farmer showing off Trump merchandise at county headquarters. They even have trump 2020 masks despite the resistance of many trump supporters to wear them. Both Republicans and Democrats are having to find new ways to reach voters amid the pandemic. One GOP tactic Trump Boat Regatta Out on Lake Eerie What Salman says they're still doing is much old fashioned door knocking as ever, maybe more if there's a newspaper box out by the road, put it in, but otherwise they go to the door and knock leaves the bag on the door. Somebody comes They stay, you know, way back and with mask on and so forth. Democrats, meanwhile, are being more cautious on that score. Salman says he thinks voters see Trump as better at rebuilding the economy post pandemic. He acknowledges that Joe Biden with his Pennsylvania roots is a very different candidate than Hillary Clinton. There's no Biden equivalent to the lock her up chant at Trump rallies by. I think he's a nice enough older fellow. But look at his record. We've got enough years We've got four or five decades. Is to look at it. It doesn't compare both of these party chairs, no, that Erie County is in play and even with the pandemic, limiting traditional campaigning and providing a powerful political issue, They insist they can still do what they need to do to reach the voters. They'll need to win. Don Gani NPR NEWS Erie, Pennsylvania.
Trump on ABC News town hall: We will protect coverage for preexisting conditions
"Going to Pennsylvania yesterday for a town hall last night on ABC with Bill Clinton's former communications director, George Stephanopoulos. How did it go? Well, here's an interesting moment. A woman asking a question of the president of the United States gets testy with the president for attempting to answer it. Listen to this. Questions on health care comes from the block. She's from Philadelphia and assistant professor who voted for Hillary Clinton. Last time, Mr President. I was born with a disease called sarcoidosis, and from the day I was born, I was considered uninsurable. That disease started in my skin moved to my eyes into my optic nerves. And when I went to graduate school into my brain when it hit my brain, I was automatically eligible for disability. For the rest of my life. I chose instead to get a bachelor's degree a master's degree a PhD and become a professor. It is great. Except I still have similar health care problems. It cost me with copays. I'm still paying almost $7000 a year in addition to the co pay and should pre existing conditions which Obama care brought into brought to fruition be removed. No with that. Please stop and let me finish my questions there. Wow should then be removed within a 36 to 72 hour period without Medication. I will be dead and I want to know what it is that you're going to do to assure that people like me who work hard we do. Everything we're supposed to do can stay insured. It's not my fault that I was born with this disease is not my fault that I'm a black woman and then the medical community. I'm minimized and not taken seriously. I want to know what you are going to do about that. How about a cocked fist? Basically, I mean, it listened to her. Asked that question he tries to even gently answer it, she said. You stop. Let me finish my questions because it's because she's black and he's white. So he's racist. And so she's confronting the man was. I heard that and I thought that that was so rude and I got tired of and she was just one of several who are like because they're black. It's different for them, you know, and I thought President Trump kept his cool the whole time, and she said, I pay $7000 a year in premiums. I'm like I want your insurance plan because that's far less than mine. You know, she's paying less than I'm paying. And you know she's going to take much more out of the system. Then I dio and I'm pretty sure she doesn't understand how a socialist system works like that. Her brain is filled with all sorts of new media manipulation. I mean, it's just like it's kind of interesting to hear her talk. It's like it's like she's regurgitating a CNN segment. We'll glide. The questions were written down, and I wonder when these people asked these questions if they're written for them or if they've been coached in anyway, because there were several of familiar themes that ran through the questions. It wouldn't be the first time that political activists were either involved or made their way into event like this. The Stephanopoulos did say at the beginning that these were their own questions. These questions were written by these individuals and by the way, we totally appropriate for ABC to check on what the actual question is, from a question or prior to the production of this event, because you create a natural flow of topics that way so you can go to somebody who actually has a question that's relevant, something that was just asked. But you know, it's good to be skeptical, definitely, especially in an environment where Bill Clinton's former communications director is the moderator. That does seem like a good idea. Trump was calm in his answer Here listen to the way he talked about pre existing Titian's So first of all, I hope you are taken seriously. I hope you are and we are not going to hurt anything having to do with pre existing conditions were not going to hurt preexisting conditions, and in fact, just the opposite. If you look at what they want to do, where they have socialized medicine, they will get rid of pre existing conditions. If they go into Medicare for all, which is socialized medicine, and you can forget about your doctors and your plans, just like you could forget under President Obama. Said. You can have your doctor. You can have your plan and that turned out to be alive and instead of 28 different times, at least we have 28 different times. You can have your doctor. You can have your plan. Well, it's not true, but what we're doing is we're going to be doing a health care plan pre existing protecting people with preexisting conditions as an example yourself. It sounds like that's exactly perfect. That's exactly what we're talking about. Yeah, Okay, so and he and he hit that again, like look, any plan I come up with any plan we're gonna work on will replace Obamacare, especially the issues of pre existing conditions. I want to protect him. He's been
Trevor Noah condemns Trump's COVID-19 Response
"Back to the daily social distancing show and yes, we are still social distancing pretty soon the top of my head is going to be six feet away from my forehead. That's the plan. That's how I'm going to measure my distance from people hey, what's going on becks they s see you know the reason we still social distancing is because the coronavirus is still spreading, and this is thanks partly to people not taking it seriously. So let's catch up in another installment of our ongoing segments the pandemic. I our pandemic coverage, Hicks off in Utah State in desperate need of the l shaped tetris piece. We now know that one of the easiest ways to stop the spread of coronavirus is just to have everybody where a mosque unfortunately telling everyone to wear a mosque is also one of the easiest ways to spread idiocy after more than one weeks in schools have reopened in Washington County Liberty, action coalition hosted a rally in front of the school district building. This morning up to a thousand people showed up saying the children being forced to wear masks in classrooms is illegal and even unconstitutional. Now have gathered here in front of the Washington County. Administration building calling for. The end of a mouse mandate. If we want to wear a mask, that's fine we can take care of ourselves when George Floyd was saying I can't breathe and then he died and We're wearing a mask and we say I can't breathe but we're for story anyway I'll tell you another reason I'd hate mass most child molesters love them God. Damn. These people were crazy. In fact, you know what they should have. Let them storm the school building because maybe they would have accidentally learn something like I'm still trying to process everything that was going on at that rally no matter how many times I watched that video i. still find new things to process. Like that video is the closest thing I've seen to facebook comments happening in real life I like individual freedom wipe people are the real George Floyd. Happy. Birthday Martha Mask wearing was invented by Jeffrey Epstein. Oh and here's another reason it's hard for Americans. To get the pandemic under control even places do have rules for social distancing. This is how some people follow them growing concerns over Cova clusters especially on college campuses in Ohio police cited several people in a house near Miami University during the Labor Day weekend body camera footage captured a stunning exchange between an officer and a student or there's So, you probably know where I wanNA talk to too many people but you know the the ordinances ten people. Yeah. How many people are in the house? Twenty twenty people inside. You Might WanNa start clearing off the I've never seen this before there's an input on the computer that you tested positive for covid. When was this was? A week ago are you supposed to be quarantining? That's why I'm on my house do you have other people here and you? You're positive for Kovin? We WanNA, keep the site open. That's why. We're so screwed. The main part of quarantine isn't about being at your house, my friend. It's about being away from other people so that you don't spread the disease I'm scheduled. Know where this guy puts a condom on his buddy at this point I'm glad it's just corona virus. Can you imagine this dude handling Ebola wait so I'm not supposed to eat a monkey. Because I got to tell you there was some confusion there. Oh and just by the way. Watching this police officers body cam footage was like virtual reality game called white privilege because this kid was clearly breaking the law but the cups tone of voice sounds like he was telling him today specials Hieaux could I interest you and not breaking the law today? Get a few minutes to think it over and I'll come back so. Some people are misinformed some people a crazy and some people are both. People. Like Donald jaundiced trump president of the United States and one man super spreader overnight at a packed indoor rally president trump breaking Nevada's covid restrictions to court voters. In the key battleground state, we're going to win to that speaking to a throng of mostly mask Liz supporters, his first indoor rally nearly three months. The state prohibits gatherings of more than fifty people but trump defiant of the governor comes after you which you shouldn't be doing. I'll be with you all the while those behind the president and in front of the cameras wore masks, most of the crowd did not. But that didn't bother supporters like meal. Christianson who camped out overnight I'm not wearing a mask that's a shows that I trust my president. Okay look. I. Get why trump fan would have trusted trump before. But how do you still trust this off the he admitted that he's been downplaying the coronavirus this whole time I don't get it. I really don't get what do you mean you trust and this is like believing the Nigerian e mail scam off the he tells you that he's a Nigerian email scam although I'm a small time criminal pretending to be a wealthy prince. Will Send me some money. You know what? I liked this guy's honesty I will send him fifty thousand dollars and as for trump. How you call yourself the presence of law and order when you openly flouting the law and not even for a noble reason. No, it's just so that he can spend nineteen minutes ranting about how vegetables invented by the deep state and Hillary. Clinton and this isn't just about breaking the law. What Donald Trump is doing here is actually dangerous. The last time trump held an indoor rally. He lost twenty five percent of his black friends. So there you have it. Everyone from college students to grandma's to the president himself is helping this virus continue spreading. But I guess. That's the genius of America's Corona Virus Response. Unlike other countries that are preparing for the second wave America realized you don't have to deal with the second wave. If you never get over the first.
US election: Kamala Harris to host virtual fundraisers with Hillary Clinton
"Little tweet that Biden sent out yesterday. At five o'clock in the afternoon, he said. It's hard to believe. But Monday Marks 50 days until Election day and to kick off the final stretch. Hillary Clinton and Kamala Harris are hosting a grass roots fundraiser. You don't want to miss this, folks. Chip in to reserve your spot. I looked at this has got to be a joke. Hillary Clinton and Kamala Harris. Are going to be Spearheading. A grass roots fundraiser. These are two of the most unpopular women in American politics. Why in the world would they be leading this thing?
How Trump and Biden are making their pitches in battleground states
"If you look at a lot of these swing state polls is you look at them understand that the trump still is polling. Below the number he got twenty sixteen right he he's not pitching in to the support that he was getting in most of these polls. If not, all of them Joe Biden is polling ahead of where Hillary Clinton was. Right. A lot of these states are are states trump won that he's not leading in now. So I would say it's not a it's not as bad as you think it is. But B The pilot is almost certainly going to tell you buckle up your seat belt because. It's GonNa get closer. It's why we call them swing states or battleground states. So my my my thing on Florida's we get into this one quick thing in the last six presidential elections forty, five, million votes have been cast in Florida and the difference between Democrats and Republicans in that total of forty five million votes is a little more than eighty five, thousand death-ray Florida's Florida, I mean, it's GonNa be tight. It is going to be a very tight race all the way there. It's going to be a one point to point race. It's always has been, and if it's two points that's big in Florida, a Roberts set so. It doesn't surprise I. I agree with my thought I don't I kind of questioned the tide all in terms of the the strength of trump with Latinos over Biden air. I'm little asking that as well but even then you look at those numbers that finds doing much better with seniors than Hillary did in two thousand, sixteen in Florida I mean it's sort of offset the different race. It's not the same but it's going to be very tight.

Trump and 2015 McCain comments
"Donald trump is vehemently denying allegations made in a shocking Atlantic piece, which claims that trump refused to visit a US military cemetery near Paris in two thousand, eighteen because the fallen soldiers were in his words, losers and suckers. Now I say it was a shocking piece but to be honest with you not so shocking when you consider all the different times, he transparently brazenly said terrible things about members of our military who happen to disagree with him politically. But here he is denying it and then I'll give you what the facts are to think that I would make statements negative to. Our military and our fallen heroes nobody's done what I've done. With the budgets with the military budgets with getting pay raises military it is a disgraceful situation. By a magazine that's a terrible magazine. I don't read it by disagreed with John. McCain. But still respected him and I had to approve his funeral is president. We lowered the flags I had to approve that nobody else I had to approve it when you think I'm just thinking back. I had to approve either Air Force One or military plane. To go to Arizona to pick up his casket and I approved it immediately. So. Let's take a look at a trump tweet from two thousand fifteen because there's always tweet. This is from July two, thousand fifteen where trump referred to John McCain as a loser. I mean he tweeted an article about himself calling John McCain loser. So he was bragging about it also when McCain died in two thousand, eighteen trump refused to lower the White House flag back to half staff even though it's become customary for presidents to sign a proclamation calling for the flag to remain at half staff for members of Congress until the day of interment, and then one other piece of evidence to Kinda refute trump's narrative in that video take a look and I said somebody should run against John McCain who has been. In my opinion not so hot I supported him. I supported for President I raised a million dollars from a lot of money. I supported him. He lost he let us down but he lost. So. I never liked him as much after that because I don't like to lose. But. But Frank Franklin we're get doing. He hit me he's a war hero. He's a war hero he's a war hero presumed captured. I like people that weren't captured. Okay I hate to tell you. That was from twenty. Fifteen event in Iowa. So. I don't know how to talk trump supporters anymore. That's why I'm done with them in my personal life and everywhere else because the guy. Ridiculous Liar. Does he know that he tweeted on John McCain's loser does he know he said on? Massimo you guys all remember when he said for people who weren't. But earlier, he said, I don't like losers referring to John McCain. So why did he come out yesterday and say no I never malsor. Each just unbelievable he's capable and so if you say, Hey, know what I love people who are Liars Okay again I mean do you boo okay. and. And look again. I. Blame the media. And Because So many politicians lie and they never call it out. They'd never they enabled politicians lies for decades. So eventually, you got one that. So over the top that even. Though. And remember you guys remember it took them like a couple of years before they finally gather up the nerve to say, well, what Donald Trump said, there was not correct. I'm forgetting the name of the CNN analyst who finally just said it and then went on this three minute rant fact checking trump. Fact checking trump's RNC speech but he started that three minute rant by saying trump lied he's a liar and I was like. Is. This CNN what's going on? And so yeah, you're right Jangling the fact that that excited me because it's so rare I think mean something and we'll get you the name of the person I'm talking about because he deserves all the credit I'm kind of blanking right now but look I actually think with this particular story and a few others. The media has done a decent job. So for instance, business insider had a very lengthy list highlighting all the different times, Donald trump attacked members of the military right and fallen soldiers. So I wanna read a few of them right now in fact, as you guys can probably remember in July of two thousand, sixteen trump attacked the family of captain who mine con a slain soldier someone who died. Fighting for the country dismissing a speech his father Kaiser Khan made because he said Khan's mother hadn't been allowed to speak the family said she had not spoken because she too emotional to talk about her son's death. And he just kept going after that family. It was it was honestly disgusting in October of two thousand seventeen trump forgot the name of slain US Army Sergeant La- David Johnson while he was on the phone with his widow, Johnson was killed in an ambush in. Niger. While while in active service. Misha. Johnson said the call was trump made her cry and trump told her that her husband knew would he had signed up for in November of two thousand Eighteen Fox News is Chris Wallace asked trump about his thoughts on retired Admiral William mcraven a former navy seal been. who was behind the mission that killed Osama bin. Laden. He interrupted Wallace and said Hillary Clinton. Fan. When Wallace continued trump did to excuse me Hillary Clinton Fan trump went on to repeat that mcraven supported Clinton which by the way he hadn't as well as former President Barack Obama and said frankly wouldn't have been nice if we got Osama bin Laden a lot sooner than that. I mean, there's so many more examples Jank but I mean I want to give you an opportunity to respond to some of them. By the way Daniel Dale is the CNN reporter that I was referring to earlier go ahead. So we've seen him call the generals, losers, thousands of times and so. I guess people are shocked at that. He would go and call the fallen soldiers losers as well, and not just stop a general's or veterans or captured soldiers. But is it really shy at all? He calls everybody lose them in his denial. He called the military people who were the sources for this story lowlifes and liars. If you're trying to deny that you'd ever call anybody in the military losers you shouldn't then turn around in your denial and call them lowlifes. Buyers. So I look. Landing brokers story with four sources. Then Washington Post back it up with three sources and the Associated Press also found sources all saying the same thing. I actually want to read a few excerpts from the Washington Post piece. Again, these aren't the same sources. These are additional sources who also spoke to the Washington Post about. Their experience with trump and what he had to say about fallen soldiers in one account. The president told senior advisors that he didn't understand why the US government plays such a high value on finding. Oh. This is so disgusting finding soldiers missing in action because they had performed poorly and gotten caught in deserved what they got according to a person familiar with the discussion. Okay. That That part of the story like I don't know all of it is gross but that part hit me the hardest because he just doesn't value people's lives and think about losing a family member that way and knowing that the president of the United States does not care to find their bodies. A trump believes people who served in Vietnam War must be losers. They hadn't gotten out of it according to a person familiar with the comments. Trump also complained bitterly to then chief of staff, John Kelly that he didn't understand why Kelly and others in the military treated. McCain, who had been imprisoned and tortured during the Vietnam War with such reverence isn't he kind of a loser? Trump asked according to a person familiar with trump's comments. So. Look at Donald Trump says, this is outrageous synonymous sources. Donald Trump also, just a couple of days ago said that there was a plane full of thugs who are gonNA come and disturb. His, acceptance speech and caused violence and when asked, who told you that he said? I can't tell you basically it's anonymous. So. I'm supposed to believe your anonymous source of a trust me to go. You would know trust me. But we're not supposed to believe now it looks like about a half, a dozen military sources for that talked to three different publications all saying the same thing and all saying things that are very similar to what you said before and by the way yesterday show before the Washington Post Associated Press stories came out I said I guarantee you. that. He thinks that they're suckers 'cause he out of be fake doctor's note because his daddy bottom one and he thinks they're suckers for not being able to get out of the war his spoil less and it turns out. That's exactly what he said according to the military sources that heard him say. And remember when sources are anonymous to the general public that doesn't mean that there are anonymous to the reporters. Reporters have to vet their anonymous sources and corroborate what they're saying So maybe they're anonymous to us, but they're not anonymous to the reporters.
Trump and his physician deny he had "mini-strokes"
"The president's tweets today regarding his health again, he says this was driven by Joe Lockhart Bill Clinton's old press secretary speculating about strokes and the president saying, no, no series of mini strokes apparently in the last thirty minutes or so he's tweeted again. On this subject. So he's really through his tweets amplified whatever lockhart was saying there you've had statements from the White House on this today can you shed any light about what's going on there as the matter of health on one hand, but there's just a matter of what is going on in the White House right now when it comes to this subject. This is purely driven by the president. The president as we discussed earlier had a trip to Kenosha that his team believes was a good trip in a good message for him in he overshadowed as he often does that trip that message by becoming obsessed with something that was not even on Cable News that was basically that was not reported it was not in. Michael Schmitz very good book but the idea of mini strokes was not in the book was a single tweet by a former press secretary under Bill Clinton. The president he got obsessed with it. He had his White House. Put out a statement from his physician. He tweeted about it again he's the one who purely injected in into the media today and it's also Worth noting there's more than a little hypocrisy complaining about speculation of of his health speculation about someone's helping you're not medical doctors of course irresponsible. But that is exactly what president trump did in two thousand, sixteen about Hillary Clinton in it's exactly what he's doing this time about Vice President Joe Biden. So you're seeing here a president who doesn't seem to be able to. Handle, a dose of his own medicine
Some Young Republican Activists Worry About The Future Of Their Party
"Week's Republican National Convention offered direct appeals to a new generation of voters. It showcased figures like Madison Cawthorne, a congressional candidate in North Carolina. I just turned 25. When I'm elected this November, I'll be the youngest member of Congress in over 200 years. And if you don't think young people can change the world. Then you just don't know American history. But President Trump's appeal with young voters is very limited. And some young Republican activists are concerned about the future of the party now totally defined by Trump. NPR's wanna Summers reports. Lizzie Bond is worried about the future of the Republican Party. The 21 year old Duke University students said the party today is failing to speak to people like her. She describes herself as conservative, reasonable and a person of faith. In 2016. She could not support Donald Trump and instead volunteered in support of Hillary Clinton's campaign. I think specifically within my age cohort, there's a lot of enthusiasm for President Trump. But then there are also a lot of people who are inclined to be conservative who are so disillusioned by everything that they see on the right. That it's hard not to think that the future of the Republican Party is doomed. Research from Circle, a research center at Tufts University found that nearly one in five young voters who backed Republicans in 2018 plan to support Joe Biden this year. Mike brought. Oh, said one reason why young people maybe turning away is because the Republican Party is not talking about the right issues. One of our main themes is that There are issues that Gen Z voters care about, including on the center, right? At the party has failed to address time and time again. Climate change racial injustice Algebra two plus issues. Broda was 20 and goes to Georgetown University. He's the executive director of Gen Z GOP. A group that's looking to reach young Republicans. He's planning to vote for Joe Biden, but hopes that there will be a better Republican option than Trump in 2024. Now I think with the ultimate determining factor is that Draws me away from him completely is his poor approach to governance. And that's evident in his handling the code 19 pandemic, and it's no longer just about his policies were inconsistent with my views for what's best for the country. It's how he approaches those policies. Many young Republicans said that coming of age as a conservative today has been a bit of a surreal experience. I still remember sitting in this restaurant with some friends and be like, Oh, wouldn't it be like the weirdest thing if the race ended up being Trump versus Hillary, and we're like, Oh, my goodness that would never happen like that Be so awful and Lo and behold, it's what happened. That's Grace Klein. She's 18 and just started her first year at Arizona State University. She described herself as very against Trump during the 2016 Republican primary. Four years later, things have changed. I'm going to be voting for the first time in November, and I am an adamant supporter. I will 100% vote for him now client said Trump has exceeded her expectations. But there are some things she does not agree with. She specifically mentioned some of the president's tweets. But she said that his record and his values help her look past what she described as personality flaws. And there's one issue that Klein said, is central to her political identity. I believe That the rightto life starts at conception. And if a candidate doesn't support that I will not support them. Curl in Monastir is a 19 year old student at Coker College in South Carolina. He said the most important issue for him as a conservative is standing up for the Constitution. He was initially open to supporting President Trump in November. But right now that seems unlikely. Everyday on TV, the land between Vice President Biden and the libertarian candidate, Jo George. And Back in North Carolina. Lizzie Bond isn't sure either. So in November, I'm facing that really Really difficult decision. I likely won't be supporting either presidential candidate. Voters like her have just 63 days to figure it out on a summer's NPR news.
Trump gives speech at RNC
"Start with the Republican national convention which wrapped up last night, his all US elections, correspondent, toss, Lewis What I think what you made of the contents of his speech this kind of slightly choose your own adventure of the state that the United States in at the moment. That I think that we have seen for the first time real clarity. Of Message From Donald Trump I think that really cements the kind of tone we've seen from all of the speakers that have taken part in the Republican National Convention this week and I think that is now a message we are just seeing the beginning of beginning to unfold. We will see the messages of unrest in US cities especially, ones that are governed by Democrats that will be a message that we he'd be Hamid home and hammered home. Again, I would suggest over the months to come I. Think he was notable as a speech to, both because it was the first time, really a candidates for a major party used the White House effectively as a backdrop as a political property like to deliver a party political speech. there's a large crowd standing before him. They didn't seem to be sitting very far apart from each other and very few of them in the crowd seemed to be wearing masks a tall I think if we look back at the start of this year Joe, Biden's relatively curtails ability to campaign during the pandemic may have served him. Well, I think many will say that being in front of a crowd Donald Trump feels comfortable may well have served him. Well. Last night in terms of optics at the very least also seeing now, donald trump using Saudi change of tack in that he is going to quite some detail into his attacks on Joe, Biden I think that's a symbol that he is now own his advisors least are taking Joe Biden's lead in the national opinion polls pretty seriously and I think you will see much more nuance to those attacks although they'll be on the same theme. I think coming. Through over the next few months last time around, it was a a general generating of a negative atmosphere generally in the campaign, and then of course, the short hands, these nicknames for Hillary Clinton and his other opponents that seemed sort of stick. They haven't really stuck to Joe. Biden so far. So I think the fact was seeing a lot more detail now to donald trump's attacks on Joe Biden is quite interesting. It'll be interesting to see how Joe Biden. Now response to those and I do think it means that given the tone you know we're not clear on how far the appeal of the tone and the message that was given last night will be until election day but I do think it means that given that there is now a crystallized message for the Republicans that actually does kind of raise the stakes slightly for the presidential debate the beginning next month in both parties performances really will matter I think for voters. Who are now slowly as the image was too close waking up to the choices before them ahead of Election Day November
Trump calls for drug tests before Biden debate
"The president trump has spoken to the Washington Examiner yesterday in the Oval Office and he saying that he would like Joe Biden and himself to take drug tests before the debates begin next month. And they asked him why do you think that Joe Biden might be on drugs INCAS, listen I I'm pretty good at this stuff. He says that Joe Biden performed very well during the debate against Bernie Sanders and he said there's just no way. He can pull it together that quickly let's bless you. Nice little sticky. Your. Trump says he takes one aspirin a day, but he would like drug tests. The V. Before the debate start I think it's at the end of next month and to September Well, you know what he's doing, right? No he saying Yawkey accused me of so much stuff out of nowhere. This. Just so ridiculous even even trying to get me out of office with impeachment and all these things that were made up none of it ever. True. I'm. GonNa Start Making up some stuff on you I'm just going to start coming up with things out of the blue. To throw a show, see what it's like. He did have an interesting about the debate. He said, well, it's a prize fight. It's no different from gladiators except we have to use our brain and our mouth and our body to stand I want all standing. They want to sit down which I thought was an interesting thing. I WANNA be standing during the debate. They won't have chairs so I duNNo. A lot of posturing at this but the part of that is strength. Of, strength. vice. President Cheney has major major heart problems. So when he was in the vice presidential debates when it was he and Bush were the the team. He had to sit down for his because of his heart condition and that was part of the agreement with that. But if you're not, if you're not having, you know if you don't have any kind of health condition that would prevent you from stain I thought they would do. You remember or not but. I thought they would do several debates in several different ways like one would be standing. One would be sitting would be a town hall kind of setting the way I, remember there there are stools and when it was your turn to speak, you would stand and or and so that with the other person was speaking, you'd go back and sit on your stool. Then when it was your time, you would stand and. Come forward to speak to the people in the room that was one of Hillary Clinton's big complaints about one of those debates where they had the stools in a town hall setting and instead of when he was done, he wouldn't go sit back in his chair he kinda stand eight feet or so behind her and just kind of pace back and forth and she said she felt at ver as like it was. What do you call that? He was talking her coming like he was stalking her and trying to be you know what that's called that's called Gamesmanship. What people do he figured out? I'm not going I'm going to change this up. I'm GONNA throw her off her game by I'm not GONNA, sit? I'm going to stand. It's it's it's strategy. Yeah I. Remember when I remember this because I'm ninety one years old. But during the Bush Al Gore debate when they were doing the townhall went on the stools and Bush, was answering a question that was asked to him and Al Gore. Walk Right and got in his face. And he stopped and looked at him like Hey. Buddy. And then just went on with the stuff was a great. You know you've got a good laugh out of it. I mean he taxes he's privacy going. Hey if you get on my space yeah, I, remember that because it was a big deal that. Gore tried to intimidate him in Bush just kind of made everybody laughed in Gore had to step back and then it. A mistake that Al Gore may again, they do all kinds of that little strategy game what they say when they shake hands, what do they say because a lot of times people will say something to kind of make you reek wha, what did that mean rise to make you think before you start but in the the the Romney Campaign Against Obama that vice presidential debate biden wipe the floor. With the what's his name? The Republican? He was the speaker of the House and he he's a Paul Ryan. All Ryan. Yeah he's a he's a fake. Yeah. Fake conservative. And Yeah Biden. whipped him in the debate. Yes. So he's he's not a bad debater if he's if he's Going on his own. So the strategy begins now I guess, of course,

Bill Clinton shouldn't be talking at DNC if party wants to move forward
"Know they limited Bill Clinton's speech, though five minutes last night. Was it last night or the night? But it was the night before. Then Hillary spoke lies. Whatever. Then I'll run together. Put Honestly, if the Democratic Party wants to move forward, this has got to be the last time those to speak at the Democratic National Convention. And I would say the same thing. The Republicans There's no reason to have any bushes up there. I mean, it's it's clear. Bill Clinton is just, you know. He's he's yesterday's news. And Hillary as much as he tries and continues to try to make her so she's yesterday's news, too. I've said a million times one of the most impressive things one of the one of the only things that I feel like, you know, I applaud Donald Trump for doing Is he ended both the Bush Here. He had to Hey ended both the bush and the Clinton holds on their parties. You know? This is 2016 was supposed to be the year that it was. You know Jeb Bush against Hillary Clinton and you know, one of them was going to go forward. Well, what happened? Oh, I don't know. Both of them lost. Both families were out. So it is what it is, but I just find it Amazing. Ah, you know, the Democrats had four years to groom a candidate for And Groom of, you know a really good young You know? Progressive but not way way left so far left that, you know, you know, he or she alienates the centrists. Someone with new enthusiasm, new ideas that four years to groom somebody and they came up with Joe Biden.
The American Jewish Community and the 2020 US Election
"Soifer previously served as national security adviser for Senator Comma Harris now, the Democratic nominee for vice president and Joe Biden's running mate. She joins us now to talk about the role. Jewish. Voters play and how she believes. Democrats addressed. Jewish. Priorities please keep in mind. AJC. Is a five. Oh One C. Three not profit organization AJC neither supports nor opposes candidates for elective office and with that disclaimer Haley welcome thank you so much for having me. So let's start with the basics and Kinda, the horse race aspect of this how much of the American voting population identifies as Jewish? So the Jewish community in terms of the American population is about two percent, but we're actually about three percent of the electorate and we'd play an outsized role in. NHS for three reasons, we voted higher rates. On average Jewish Americans vote at a higher rate than. By about fifteen percents we also where we live correlates with wear our votes tend to matter even more we tend to live in swing states and a third reason which I'm sure we'll get into is that we overwhelmingly support Democrats in our view as Jewish Democrat organization that is especially or in terms of the outsize impact we have. So Haley Bernie Sanders in his speech on Monday addressed the many Democrats who really wanted him to be the nominee and many of them were Jewish are Jewish many of them have us on Israel, that don't jibe with the very pro Israel aspects of the party, platform. It really sounded like Bernie was calling on Democrats to unify despite their differences and I'm curious how the Party and its leadership have prevented Israel from becoming a wedge issue. Joe Biden has done an exceptional job in unifying the party around these critically important issues, including Israel and the platform that's been adopted at this convention exemplifies what is overwhelming democratic support for the US Israel relationship. Ebeidi s support a full funding for military. And Support of the STOORIKHEL alliance, it's the view of the majority of members of Congress that is the democratic mainstream media. So you emphasize what a majority of Democrats you certainly we've had concerns over the years about Ilan Omar had to leave. Is that kind of who you're thinking about when you say a majority of Democrats feel this way I should have said an over overwhelming majority you mentioned. Two. Members, of Congress, we currently between the House and the Senate head of over two hundred and seventy. So between those two members of Congress who we agree do not share our views on Israel and we've spoken out against them going back to before they were even elected. But between the two of them to over two seventy, we're talking about less than one percent of the Democratic members of Congress. They are very outspoken though they have expressed views with which we disagree and we've made that clear and that's why we're not supporting their re election and we don't share their views but luckily, their views are not shared by our party either look at the platform I mean the platform is the views of our candidate and the views of our Party and the platform could not be more clear in. Its support of Israel, what I the states to watch in this upcoming election and in which of those states could the Jewish vote really make a difference. When we look in elections, we always look at the last election as a baseline and we know that had Donald Trump not one Florida and either Michigan or Pennsylvania. He would not be president today and in those three states Florida Michigan and Pennsylvania. The Jewish vote alone could made up those margins. So when we looked to twenty twenty in this election, we are looking at the Jewish vote in those critically important states, my home state of Michigan Donald. Trump won by just ten, thousand, seven, hundred, and four votes. That margin could be overcome by the Jewish student population of Michigan in Michigan state a low. We are looking at the Jewish vote in those three critically important states but also states like Arizona and Colorado and Georgia, which in addition to being presidential swing states are going to be critically important in terms of the control of the Senate. Are you saying that the Jews in those swing states voted Republican or didn't vote at all did shoes in those swing states voted we know that Jewish voters do turn out and in twenty sixteen, it was no different than in previous elections choose turned out. But. We also know bat they turned out in support of Hillary. Clinton at about seventy two percents. If you look at the two thousand eighteen midterms Jewish voters supported Democrats at seventy nine percents. So we saw an increase, we believe that in twenty twenty, those numbers can continue to go up in terms of Jewish support for Democrats. So now we'll talk with your Republican counterpart on next week's episode. But from your vantage point, you said that most Jews identify with the Democratic Party why is that? So, choose have historically for decades defied overwhelmingly with the Democrats, the values that Jews hold dear tend to be those aligned with the policies supported by Democrats. So when it comes to domestic policies such as access to affordable healthcare and education ED and gun safety and ensuring that we are country welcoming the stranger and not enacting cruel and discriminatory policies toward immigrants and refugees. These are all key issues driving the Jewish vote. On those issues and more, that's where Jewish voters align with Democrats when it comes to foreign policy is well, we know that support of Israel is an issue that is important of course to Jewish voters and Mrs. Issue Where Democrats to our squarely aligned with the priority of Jewish voters, which is the support of the strong US Israel relationship, and in this election, we have a new issue. So all of those things have been constance. New issue in this election that is impacting the Jewish, vote in Support of Democrats and that is our rising insecurity as a community. We have seen an unprecedented rise in anti-semitic attacks targeting our community including the horrific attacks in Pittsburgh and Powei we know that seventy three percent of Jews feel less secure than they did years ago and over half of US blame. Donald Trump for that and that's because we've seen him embolden anti-semites white nationalist just last night he tweeted out support for an extremist group Hugh a non that has peddled conspiracy theories still on these issues especially when it comes to the security of our community. There's a clear choice in this election and Jewish especially do not believe that Donald Trump has the best interest of our community in mind he has Jewish family members. He's certainly been friendly to Israel is strengthened that relationship. So how does that square? There's no question. He has Jewish family members. He's also married and he's done said many misogynistic things. So that alone does not qualify him as what I would consider to be someone who's been particularly good for the Jewish community I look at the numbers and I look at the unprecedented rise in white nationalist propaganda or anti Semitic attack and the words that. Come out of his mouth better clear signs to anti-semites to racist to bigots that he is their ally whether it is identifying anti-semites white nationalist marching Charlottesville as very fine people or calling the extremists that marched in Michigan with swastikas very good people that was earlier this year or hiring someone recently, Sebastian Gorka who is affiliated with the Nazi party in Hungary? When it comes to Israel. Donald Trump. Has Been Long on symbolism and short on substance. Yes. He moved the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and we recognize that Jerusalem is, of course, the capital of Israel. But the substance matters and when you look at the record of Joe Biden who with President Obama finalized unprecedented historic thirty eight. DOLLAR AGREEMENT WITH ISRAEL PROVIDING FOR AID for the next ten years, and you look at the security issues that Israel faces. Actually Donald. Trump has not been that great for Israel.
Obama forcefully rebukes Trump in speech to DNC
"California's California's own own Kamala Kamala Harris Harris accepted accepted her her historic historic nomination nomination as as vice vice president president in a quiet hall devoid of the spectacle and the energy that usually would attend such a big moment. KCBS political reporter dug, Sovereign says It was somewhat overshadowed, however, by a powerful and unprecedented speech by former President Barack Obama. On night three, The Democratic National Convention targeted young voters and women focusing on the issues they care Most about. Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke from San Francisco, Hillary Clinton from her home in Chappaqua. And ultimately, Kamala Harris made history as the first woman of color on a major party ticket. There was a convention style podium in those long, tall signs marking the state delegations. But instead of thousands of Democrats drunk with the moment Just a handful of media not there to cheer as Harris accepted her nomination and lamented what Donald Trump has done to our country, the constant chaos. Leaves us adrift. The incompetence. Makes us feel afraid. Callousness. Makes us feel alone. It's a lot And here's the thing. We can do better. And deserve so much more. Harris shared her compelling life story. But before she spoke, former President Obama said a high bar with an emotional attack on the man who succeeded him in the Oval Office. No interest in treating the presidency is anything but one more reality show that he can use To get the attention he craves. Joe Biden came out to join Harris after her speech, but from a safe distance, no hugs or clasping raised hands. He'll speak tonight and then this historic ticket. First of its kind, has 75 days to make the case to replace Donald Trump.

"About your role in that in a second. But who among them are you interested in well, I. I know everyone who's running and or thinking of running or possibly running but. There's always that period between hate that sounds like a really good idea. And, then, trying to actually think through see if it is the right thing for you to do see if you can raise the money, all of the questions that go into it so I'm not going to handicap the race before. Anybody actually gets into it. I think we'd have a number of excellent candidates who would be really formidable on the campaign trail, but let's wait and see who it is I mean. We may have as many as fifteen twenty candidates. That's a big group to try to sort itself out. And I'm just GONNA. Wait and Watching him that anyone, you're particularly interested. No you know, there are a number of their a number of excellent potential candidates. Look this first of all if we don't win. Naming names and see what you're. Okay if you want to, but. If we go. But if we don't win on November six, honestly, I know this sounds far fetched. This administration if they continue to control all branches of government, and they have been stocking the courts with ideologues. You will, you will find that it will be much more difficult to run and people who have never had to face the fire. Once they get out there. And they start being the target of the vitriol and hatred that comes against anybody who criticizes trump. That's going to cause a number of people to do a bit of soul searching. So I think we've got to give everybody who is thinking about it or even people who wake up on November seventh and start thinking about it. We've got to give them the space to make what is a really serious calculation depending upon what political individually and then I want to get to Saudis. What Moore and Elizabeth Warren Elizabeth great cheap look for reelection. She's obviously going to be reelected overwhelmingly and she's got a great message. He's got a great passion for the fight to restore the middle class I mean. If she decides to run, she'll have a lot to say Bloomberg. Well you know I think Mike. Bloomberg becoming a Democrat should at least suggest he's thinking about it. and. I had the same thought. Yeah I I mean great minds, and all of that I think he is You Know He. He has overwhelming resources, but he also. Has a real. Interest in running things and making them work better, and you know he'd have to get out there and persuade. Democrat city was. In the primary to be the Democratic nominee, but if he if he gets out there, I think you'll have. A lot to contribute. Let's see Comma Harris. CARMELA is fantastic, human, being as well as a terrific senator and she She just brings a whole. Very fresh and open approach to a lot of these issues that she cares deeply about that. She's worked on as attorney general a prosecutor before that and being from. California is a big deal. Because the California primary, we'll have by far the largest number of delegates so you know the politics and and her. Obvious interest in these important issues would stand her in good stead Oprah. Look she's an icon and she she has. She has said she's not interested and really. Don't believe you, don't it? Well then I believe you believe you believe it well I I believe her because she's got almost the perfect life right now. And she has. A tell you a story that is kind of related, although a little off topic, so when when? She who I got to know quite well when I was leading the opening of the United States to actually go back into what was then called Burma Myanmar. she was the human rights icon. The you know, the lady, the lady who had lived in a house arrest to had stood up for democracy in her country and. She and I had a really. Long couple of conversations about her decision that she was going to go into politics. and. I said to her then I said. I can understand why you WANNA do that. You WANNA be part of helping to forge democracy that you have fought. Force suffered for. Over so many years, but once you go from icon to politician. It will be a very different world that will face and the calculations. The thinking that you have to make as a politician oftentimes pushes you to compromise forces you to have to. Ally yourself with people that you agree with one time out of one hundred. There's just a lot that goes into it. You know it is the making of sausage so so I think that Oprah. I think she would say look I can help influence the debate. I can be talking about important things that we need to be a country that starts talking and listening to each other again rather than getting into the political arena, so she wouldn't WanNa like hang out with Sean Hannity for example. Well? No Democrat likes to hang out. I. mean, that's one of the problems. The propaganda value that Fox provis to the Republican Party is incalculable. It is so incredibly important to their brand to their messaging. They just. Put turn themselves over to be. An alliance with Fox so I think that it's difficult to go on their shows very few Democrats, any longer do because you know. There's no such thing as as having a reasonable conversation you're just going to be. Beaten up and chopped up and delivered to the audience when you go on. Fox News! I've gone on Fox. News I've been on Fox News and you know look. There are a few people that you feel like you could have a reasonable. Conversation with Sean Hannity is not one of them. Okay with that would not be my recommendation to Oprah Buddy al I would great. I'm going to get off these season. We're talking about you. Know personal things with you and also, but but running one of the things that has happened. Let's start with the political part. There's been a lot of articles. Hillary's should shut up. Hillary should not talk. Hillary's got to go away, right. Okay. But those articles are there you know. What do you think of those I think they're ridiculous got. Where do they wear from your perspective? They Comfort. Well, I don't know. I noticed that there were no articles telling Al Gore to go away or John Kerry to go away or John McCain or Mitt Romney to go away. Mitt, Romney's going to the Senate. That's where he's going. And so I don't really know I think. You could speculate but I don't have any. Any evidence or speculate speculate okay. Look I think. I think some of it and I write about this in my book. Some of it is just of the same category of the. Sexist behavior and sexist kind of talk around me and my campaign, but not only me. You mentioned a couple of my former colleagues from having been in the Senate. Luther Warren's on the floor of the Senate, delivering a speech against Jeff sessions to be attorney general, and she's reading from a letter by Coretta Scott King who had doubts about Jeff sessions years before when they wanted to make him a judge and Mitch McConnell goes to the floor and as majority leader..

"Continuing assault on our sources of information. Here's how I think about it. I was very proud of my data and analytics team. They were largely veterans of the Obama Campaign's await twelve, and then we brought in new people and brought in a lot of new expertise to build the next generation, and we had a lot of help from some. In silicon, valley as well and what we thought we were doing. Here's the arena we were playing in was going to like Obama. Three point zero. You know better targeting better messaging and the ability to both turn out our voters as we identified them. And to communicate more broadly with voters. Here's what the other side was doing, and they were in a different arena. Through content farms through an enormous investment in. Falsehoods fake news. Call it what you will about lies lies. Really. That's a good word to. The. The other side. was using content. That was just flat out false. And delivering it in a very personalized way. You know both sort of above the radar screen and below. And I. You know I'm not a tech expert by any stretch of the imagination. That, really influenced the information that people were relying on, and there have been some studies done since the election that if you look, let's pick facebook if you look at facebook. The vast majority of the news news items posted were fake they were connected to. As we now know the one thousand Russian agents who were involved in delivering those messages they were connected to the bots that are just out of control. We see now this new information about trump's tweets account being populated by millions of bats. And it was. It was such a new experience I understand why people on their facebook pages would think. Oh Hillary. Clinton did that I did not know that well. That's going to affect my opinion about her. And we were. We did not engage in false content we may. We may have tried to put every piece of information and the best possible, white and explanations, but we weren't in. The same category as But okay, so you weren't going to lie right good for you well. I see rethinking. Rethinking it, but everybody else better rethink it because we have to figure out how okay APP, but that's my point. Yeah, my impression is that the that the left the Democrats liberals. Whatever you WANNA. Call Cleaning Bernie, Sanders folks and all everybody. On the democratic side. which which at one time many like twelve fifteen years ago was ahead of the Republicans on. As, listed then right is way behind now, and it's not just I mean there's a way to weaponize tech that doesn't involve flying, right or doing or having Russians help you, but just it. It is a political weapon. It's a fact of life. How do you do that? How do you do? How do we do it, but let me let me let me just do a comparison for you, so you know I set up my campaign and we have our own data operation. I get the nomination. So I'm now the nominee of the Democratic Party. I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party. What do you mean nothing I mean? It was bankrupt. It was on the verge of insolvency. Its data was. Mediocre to poor non-existent wrong. I had inject money into it. This is the DNC the DNC to keep it going okay. Donald trump who did nothing about really any kind of data operation inherits are in see data foundation. That after the Republicans lost in two thousand twelve, and they thought they had a very good operation with the setup that Romney did the called ORCA. They thought that was really state of the art they lose. So they raised. Best estimates are close to one hundred million dollars. They brought in their main vendors. They basically said we will never be behind the Democrats again. And They Invest Between Two Thousand Twelve and twenty sixteen, this one hundred million dollars to build this data foundation. They Beta tested it. They ran it. Somebody will able to determine about two hundred twenty seven thousand surveys to double check triple check quadruple. Check the information, so trump becomes the nominee, and he is basically handed. This tried and true. Effective Foundation. then. You've got Cambridge Analytica and you know you can believe. The the hype on how great they were or the hype on how they work, but the fact is. They added something and I think again. We better understand that the mercer's did not invest all that money just for their own amusement. We know they played in Brexit and we know that. They came to Jared Kushner and basically said we will marry our operation, which was more as it's been described, psycho graphics sentiment lot of. Lot of harvesting of facebook information. We will marry that with. The the RNC. Onto conditions you pick Steve, Bannon and you pick Kellyanne Conway and then we're in. Trump says five who cares right so bannon who'd been running the Breitbart operation supplying a lot of the? The untrue false stories are saying lies yeah. We know so they married content with. Delivery and data. And it was a potent combination now. The question is where and how did the Russians get into this and I think it's a very important question, so I assume that a lot of the people here may have, and if you haven't I hope, you will read the declassified. Report by the intelligence community that came out in early January. This is seventeen seventeen agencies all in agreement which I know from my experience, says a senator and secretary of State is hard to get. They concluded with high confidence. That the Russians ran and extensive information war campaign against my. Campaign To influence voters in the election. They did it through paid advertising. We think they did it through a false news sites. They did it through these thousand agents. They did it through machine learning, which kept spewing out this stuff over and over again the. That they developed now so that was the conclusion and I think it's fair to ask. How did that actually influence the campaign? and. How did they know what messages to deliver? Who told WHO TOLD THEM? Yeah? Who they coordinating with or colluding with because the Russians historically. In the last couple of decades, and then increasingly you know are launching cyberattacks, and they are stealing vast amounts of information and a lot of the information. They've stolen. They've used for internal purposes to affect markets to affect The intelligence services. Et CETERA. So this was different because they went public, and they were conveying this weaponized information, and the content of it and they were running. You know there's all these stories about guys over in Macedonia. Fake News sites and I've seen them now and you sit there and it looks like A. Sort of low level, CNN operation fake newspaper. Guardian fake newspaper, and so the Russians in my opinion and based on the Intel and counter Intel people I've talked to. Could not have known how best to weaponize information unless they had been guided. Here's here's by Americans guided by Americans guided by people who had polling and data. Now. Let me just finish because this is the second and third step so. We know that they did that. We understand it. Best example so within one hour one hour of the Access Hollywood tapes being leaked. Within one hour. The Russians Assay wikileaks same thing dumped the. John Podesta emails. Now if you've ever read the John Podesta emails, they are Anodyne to boredom. But. There! We had him here, but they were. They were I. Forgive Him for what he said about you. So they were running the mail emails especially run of the mill for a campaign. Should we do this? What did she say? I don't you know? The stuff that is so. Common Basic. Within one hour they dump them. And then they began to weaponize. And they began to have some of their allies within the. Internet world like Info Wars takeout pieces and began to say the most outrageous outlandish absurd lies you can imagine. and. They had to be ready for that and they had to have a plan for that and they had to be given the go-ahead. Okay, this could be the end of the trump campaign. Dump it now. And then let's do everything we can to weaponize it and we know it hurt us because as I explained in my book. You know the the Komi letter, which was now we know partly based on. A. False memo from the Russians right? It was a classic piece of Russian. Disinformation Kompromat they call it. So, for whatever reason I speculate, but I can't look inside the guy's mind. He dumps it on me on October Twenty, eight and I immediately start falling. But what was really interesting? Since the mainstream media covered that as I, say like Pearl Harbor Front pages everywhere huge type etc.. And all of the trump people go around screaming locker up locker up and all of that..

What this woman started doing in college the way she spoke up the way she was like singularly focused on advancing women and women's rights is just? She's incredible but it also talks about the election and the misinformation Disinformation and all that. But even if like even if she has a part in this it doesn't really matter to me like the way people hate on her is indicated it on her since her husband was the president it. Yeah just defies reason. Just it's just visceral people just don't like her and she's had had to contend with that was Obamacare Hillary Clinton.

I have not have knocked my socks off shocked that it didn't get best director of World War One movie. It's it's a movie yes warm but it's more like a tale of these two guys journey. It's it's it's not like unbelievable. Yeah it's not like your standard war. Movie Denike Dunkirk or saving tourists. Who are Torah? It's basically two young men charged with delivering a message to the front line.

"Across the board in politics, people feel much freer to ask a woman a personal question here Gillibrand who's my senator She got questions about how she can run for president. She said two little boys at home I mean there were other people running for president who had school age children at home. They didn't ask the men their fathers, right? That was just not the same. Kind of question. So It goes back to the point you made about the balance between strength and assertiveness and warmth than vulnerability. We're still struggling to get that in the right. Place because it's not easy and people still carry all of these expectations about about what women should or shouldn't be congresswoman Katie Puerto from California had a profile done earlier this year and I saw her talking about it afterwards saying that. They did a profile on her as a member of Congress with three young children and the place they wanted to do the photo shoot was to follow her grocery shopping. You look when is a member of Congress ever been photographed grocery shopping but it was because there was all this intrigue around how would she do it Ken she managed yeah. No I I mean that's a perfect example and what was so exciting about the two thousand eighteen midterms is all of the women who got elected some married some unmarried some straight some gay some with children some childless. That's where we want people to start having to grapple with is guess what you know women just like men have many different. Kinds of life choices that they've made, and it's just unfortunate that you know Katie Porter instead of you know John Porter. Is going to be stereotyped in that way. I mean she's great at the way she handles the press and handles herself. So you know she's going to. Push through it, but it still is a reminder that we are far from treating women, candidates, women, office holders, the same as men, and it makes such a difference when you have women look in every level like not just as the candidate, but it impacts the structure so much the first presidential debate that you were in at Hofstra. University was about a month after I had my first child. So I saw you take the the nomination at the convention five days later, I Went into Labor that later that day. So this my first commentary back was was the debate. So I was booked for the debate to comment on it I was nursing then. So I my first time pumping, take my pump with me. And so I asked both campaigns and I asked every network that I was booked on. If they had a place for me to pump, and for the most part I got like deer in headlight kind of luck. But your campaign was actually the only one that found me a place that was private and that was clean for me to pump I was told by the networks that the trump campaign actually had an employee who was pumping but that she was doing it in the bathroom stall..

"The greatest experiment in self government that the world has ever seen I just. I can't believe that and so I don't believe it and therefore I wake up every day thinking about what more we need to do to protect what has worked and to fix what has not and so for me. I think there are several takeaways. One I do hope that there is a debate about women's roles and women's lives and the progress we have been making but some of the remaining challenges that we face I also hope it sparks. It's a conversation about our politics. How did we get to the point where we literally cannot make the decisions that will protect our planet create more economic opportunity provide universal so healthcare? I mean I think we have a huge existential decision to make this November. And I've you said I said it yesterday. I'll say it again.

"Couldn't believe he picked up. I was like Oh hello. You don't know who I am. You don't know this number but and then I just launched into my pitch and he's like Oh yeah no I know I know what you're your offer was and he said I would rather stick a needle in my eye. I said okay. I don't think there's a lot of convincing to be done. Yeah Hillary there are so many slights in this film. It's like bleeding to death. Mathausen paper cuts the little things that are said in passing that seem in isolation nation terrible but in cumulation horrific it. And that's the idea of how women law students were treated at Yale. The judge who asked you to twirl around while here at the podium. There's a line that Chris Matthews has I won't even dignify repeating a TV announcer calls. You the Bishops Yuppie from Hell all all of those little things over the course of documentary to me met a very lasting impact of what is casually said but is so hurtful. You're right John and and I think ninette did a masterful job of weaving that in because again it's not just about me and the relentless belittling and demeaning and dismissing is is often either ignored or absorbed in a way that you don't fully appreciate the impact of as you move through your life so one of my concerns. Is You know you have to develop such tough skin. You don't want to be battered and hurt broken by a constant belittlement. But you also don't want to be so impervious that you can't absorb whatever legitimate criticism might be coming your way so very early on. I kind of developed develop this mantra to take criticism seriously but not personally That doesn't include the harassment and the insults. Because that's in a different category but a lot of the language that is still used today about women in the public arena. China has the same impact. And I just hope that this I hope that this documentary as S. People Watch it will spark conversations like the one. We're having so that it's not. It's not off limits to say. Wait a minute you know why I wide is this still part of the ongoing dialogue about women's roles and women's rights and of course. I think we're going through a real backlash clash so I think the conversation is even more important. I don't want to quote Bart Simpson in such a serious conversation. But I'm going to please do please as Dan Bart Simpson says. He's didn't make this up damned if you do damned if you don't and there's a moment in the fourth episode where you're an debate and Donald trump is stalking talking you. He's physically behind you and the document you've say in real time that you're aware that he's standing behind you and as you're speaking about some very important issue you're playing out all Lee scenarios. What would happen if I turn around? I can't because this is how we'll play. But what have I ignore him. This is how play and that seems to be a constant theme throughout the documentary documentary. That if you go one direction people will criticize you for doing that. Another group of people criticize you for not doing that. Your stock at so how many points in your life that any decision is going to have a polarizing effect. Yeah because you know that word polarizing I think about it a lot because clearly. It's often the way that I'm described. Some of the people that Net tried to get to be interviewed for this film. Are certainly a lot more polarizing than than I think I am but is Newt Gingrich described as polarizing. He may be described as a lot of things but he's hardly ever described as polarizing and the incident that John just referred to in that second debate. You know I knew exactly what he was doing. It was Alpha male writ large. You WanNa know what a president looks like. This is what a president looks like. Not This woman not not this girl and I'm GonNa show you how dominant I am and so I'm up there and I'm going okay. What do I do do I turn around and say back off you creep? I'm not intimidated by you. Which I knew would have polarizing effects and it would also raise the issue like you know if she can't handle him how she going to handle Vladimir Putin well? I would add a heck of a lot better than the current guy so because I've been in the public eye for a long time but even before I practiced law tried lawsuits and all that I have worked with and against countless men who come in all sizes and shapes all sorts of hairstyles. And they're judged on who they are but when a woman walks into that arena. Everybody unloads on her every single feeling or reaction then that they have about women in the public is so what I did. If you if those of you saw it was do nothing you know just like I did back when I took the law school test. Just do the job and hopefully people will say.

The former first lady and secretary of State is the subject of the new four part Hulu Documentary Hillary Hillary Ninette bill and Hillary marriage is essential part of the story especially in the latter half of the documentary series. Why did you think it was important? And I WANNA ask you about interviewing Bill Clinton in an asking him about his marriage and what those interviews were like well. I thought it was important for several reasons. I mean one. They have been in partners in many ways for fifty plus years so part of it was a love story. The other thing you know we do spend half hour of the series on on the impeachment. The Monica Lewinsky incident. And we really. I tried to deal with it very much from a personal perspective and not because there's this salacious interests but because so much of secretary Clinton's life following that was judge in her perception option is particularly if she was running for office when she was running for Senate when she was running in a wait and very much when she was running sixteen. I can't tell you the number of educated Liberal Female Friends of mine who would say to me. Oh I can't vote for her. She didn't leave her husband. Who or what is it like watching that footage of your her husband offering up his explanation rationalization for what he did with Monica Lewinsky and about how? I think it's fair to say that you are paying the price for his sins. Well that's pretty dramatic. Couldn't have done a documentary about my life and not done a documentary commentary about my marriage and like every marriage. I know we've had ups and downs but ours of all played out in public after Nineteen Lean Ninety two or so you know it was. It was difficult talking about it answering questions. You know that that is not my favorite way Spend the afternoon but I was very committed to being as forthcoming as I could be in working with. Ninette and bill was too. There are two impeachment trials in this series one when you go to Washington to work on the impeachment of Richard Nixon. Obviously obviously the impeachment of Bill Clinton. There's another impeachment trial going on right now. That didn't make your deadline. And if but if you were being interviewed dude now for this documentary about what's happening in Washington. What would your thoughts be? Yeah I did. I worked on the impeachment inquiry staff of the House Judiciary Committee in one thousand nine hundred ninety four and among I tasked at a very young new lawyer was studying what the framers meant by impeachment in the Constitution. Particularly what crimes and misdemeanors I mean. One of my other jobs was listening listening to the tapes and comparing the transcriptions. The White House gave us with what was actually on the tape. which is very very similar to what we are experiencing with this impeachment? And you listen to this and you could literally listen to Richard Nixon and it. It was obvious that he was obstructing justice he was abusing power. He was defying the Congress and once the house. Judiciary Committee voted that Republican leaders in the Senate went to see Nixon in the White House. And said you will be impeached. You should resign because there is proof of abuse of power obstruction of justice contempt of Congress and and Nixon did so fast forward to where we are now. I don't think it could be any clearer. That what the founders feared is at the core of the articles of impeachment against trump. And look you. You don't have Republicans like there were in nineteen seventy four to say this has to end and you have to go hillary the end of this documentary and I'm sure a personal personal story left my wife and I in a spirited debate. I found it somewhat pessimistic. She founded optimistic. But in terms of what you think are the takeaways. What do you hope people take away from it? And how would you assess that optimistic pessimistic. Take my wife and I had a fascinating John. I don't WanNA polarize your family. It's already already polarized. Oh well I remain fundamentally optimistic. Because I really can't believe that we're going to to destroy.

"We know that they're still in contact with the Russians we know these things so we have to assume that it sent worked for them why would they quit I think Donald Trump is Vladimir Putin's dream he said that the biggest catastrophe I think in history was the collapse of the Soviet Union as a former KGB guy he is intent upon undermining democracies and trying to lay the groundwork for a resurgence of Russian. greatness as he posits and Donald Trump is delivering that to him on a daily basis I don't know why exactly I don't know what Putin has on him whether it's both personal and financial I assume it is but more than that there is this bizarre adulation trump has for dictators and authoritarians he dreams of being able to order people to do things and make them do it he has no democratic instincts really and I saw that when I was of state and traveled one hundred twelve countries one of our big problems where people got themselves elected and then became authoritarian and then did everything they could to rig elections everything they could to make sure that they were never forced out of power that is his game plan that is what he's trying to achieve and it's terrifying to me because you know scholars like Professor Timothy Snyder who wrote that great little book on tyranny they've told us what the game plan is but I still think people have a hard time believing that David it's like really oh come on on you know that can't really be true and so part of what we have to do is alert the campaigns try to protect them work with people like scare colder and others who are trying to protect the voter registration and the actual voting process try to raise the alarm about the breaches our election systems try to stand up against the misinformation weaponization of information the propaganda but they're going to have unlimited money I think the amount of money that the trump campaign and the RNC is raising right now we'll be really hard to compete with and it's not that money shins and a Democrat this time you saw trump asking for China's help I made a joke on Rachel Maddow last spring that you know Democrats are just I China if you're listening fine trump's taps returns are media would richly reward you said where does this end if ever the adversary of ours is going to mess with our elections you know I think that they did affect the outcome of this past election but more than that they sewed so much divisiveness and distrust you can't have a democracy that is functioning making decisions which were not right now if people are so divided and so angry and we've got the left and the right and everybody mad at each other and that just benefits somebody like trump and his allies.
