"I mean, I don't want to mediate anyone else's experience. But I do know that the Shepard tone we invoked some years back that ascending never resolving sound of nerves stretched to the breaking point. That ever tightening band of pressure on the brain, basically the soundtrack of the last five years For most Americans seemed finally to switch off. Momentary reprieve. Momentary indeed, on the reality based front, House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy, Republican California. Falsely claimed he did not vote to deny Joe Biden his electors. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell signaled that he would hold violence nominees and legislative agenda hostage until Democrats agreed to cede some of their newly won power. And President Biden's stimulus package seems to have no Senate Republicans support so it seems to filibuster and they have to go after all, bare knuckles are coming out. The honeymoon never happened. Not too harsh. Anyone's mellow, but majority rule doesn't have much purchase in Congress. So Business as usual so far. Meanwhile, we could likely see the Kobe death toll here reach half a million next month and when it comes to our social, political and cultural maladies. Well, we've merely shed a symptom, not the cause or causes those air for journalists to expose, But I think I mean we up to it. It's a crucial question. Have we been vaccinated against our own unproductive reflexes, blinders and conventions? The ones that bag does down for so long. We'll take a deep dive into lessons learned in the next segment, but first a status report on the condition of 45th president left journalism in Turns out being called enemy of the people and scum of the Earth for five years was sometimes scary, but it wasn't all bad. It offered some of us, especially those from elite mainstream outlets covering the White House some lucrative career opportunities. The fact that Donald Trump was trying to turn reporters into villains made them heroes to half the country..

Tribes and Native advocates praise Joe Biden’s actions to reverse many of the Trump Administration’s environmental policies affecting tribal lands

"This is national native news. Making camera in print tony gonzalez tribal advocates are praising president. Joe biden's quick action to reverse the last administration's environmental policies the mountain west news bureaus savannah mar reports on inauguration day biden took steps to rejoin the paris climate accord. His administration also placed a sixty day moratorium on new leasing and drilling permits on public lands. Biden has also fulfilled campaign promises that were important to tribes including revoking a permit for the keystone xl pipeline. I think there's a sense of indication. Recognition of treaty promises. Matthew campbell is an attorney with the native american rights fund who fought that project on behalf of tribes. In montana and south dakota campbell also represented tribes in the four corners region in their lawsuit opposing the previous administration shrinking of bears ears in grand staircase escalante national monuments. A move biden has pledged to reconsider important first step an important signal that tribal sovereignty will be recognized. The fossil fuel industry is likely to be among biden's biggest detractors. His climate change plan aims to achieve net zero emissions in the us by twenty fifty four national native news. I'm savannah mar reporting for. The story is part of a collaboration between national native news. In the mountain west news bureau native american tribes praised the biden administration this week. For issuing an executive order stopping the keystone excel pipeline but now they're urging additional action to halt other pipeline projects including the dakota access pipeline. The guardian reported the standing rock sioux tribe and the nonprofit earthjustice urged biden in a video to shutdown dapple biden has not made statements on that pipeline but last year when she was a senator vice president kamala harris signed in a mikus brief calling on a judge to shut it down while an environmental impact study was done. Dapple is already transporting half a billion barrels of crude oil daily last week. Seventy five female indigenous leaders sent biden a letter calling for a halt on fossil fuel projects. That threatened the environment. Culture and security of native american lands activist also want the administration to stop construction of line three which would transport canadian tar sands oil across indigenous lands in minnesota in montana this week the state legislature heard three bills that would continue. Efforts launched in two thousand nineteen to address missing and murdered indigenous people. The cut bank pioneer press reports. The bills faced no opposition. One reauthorize task force created in two thousand nineteen and a grant that went to a tribal college to create a database of every missing indigenous person in the state to other bills create a commission to examine cold cases and provide training for search teams and the kansas city star reports. The kansas house of representatives is also considering a bill that would allow the attorney general to coordinate training on murdered and missing indigenous people with tribes. The state bureau of investigation and other law enforcement organizations advocates. Called a good first step. In the philippines eight catholic bishops are calling for an independent investigation into the killings of nine indigenous leaders. The vatican news reports the military claims they were arresting members of the communist new people's army for alleged possession of firearms and explosives and that they resisted but eyewitnesses say. The men were unarmed and offered no resistance. The indigenous leaders were opposing the construction of a dam that would impact indigenous lands. Human rights groups say the government often labels people communists who are fighting for indigenous rights. Also in the philippines indigenous youths may lose a space where they had been sheltering from the military mugabe reports. A group of sixty eight indigenous students and teachers have taken refuge at the university of the philippines and his on city. The campuses of the university have been off limits to military and police under a longstanding packed but the national defense secretary declared an end to that.

"Policy on China. How different will it be? I ask Elizabeth economy from Stanford and antitrust enforcement gets a new regime under a new president. I talked to the outgoing and a trust chief, Macon del Rahim, for his take on what he accomplished and what is left to be done. But first Joe Biden was sworn in this week as the 46th, president of the United States. In his inaugural address, he delivered a message of unity and co working together to meet the challenges we face as a nation and overcome the challenges in front of us requires the most elusive of all things in a democracy. Unity requires us to come together in common love that defines us as Americans for reaction to the president's address and how it compares to past speeches. Bloomberg contributors. Jeannie Shawn's A. No and Rick Davis draw. Me and talking to Barbara Perry, director of presidential studies at the University of Virginia's Miller Center. I thought that was artfully done. I would say that it won't then threads from Lincoln and FDR and John Kennedy. I'm not sure it will rival their inaugural addresses. They're usually considered the top in among the top five. In terms of the rhetoric that's involved. But what really struck me was the spirituality of it that you have. First of all the the now president, starting his day with a Catholic Mass is only the second Catholic president. And then you have his his priest who talked about and quoted Pope Francis about how we must dream together because if we are isolated, we tend to see mirages. And then I thought that the spirituality theme was picked up by the print now president with his reference to his own soul, where he said, I pledge my whole soul. To meet the challenges that we face and that tied so well into his announcement of his candidacy, in which he said after Charlottesville he knew he had to run in order to restore America's soul. It's such a great point, and even over and above that President Biden Quoted ST Augusta and saying it was a scene from his church. And actually head injury bother heads in a silent prayer for the country. I don't remember the last time the president did that It may have happened other than a prayer breakfast, but I don't remember it. I certainly don't remember one in an inaugural address s O give us a sense over all of these inaugural addresses, Barbara from your perspective, What do they have meant to accomplish or what can be accomplished? How much of this substance? How much of this style? Oh, it's always both. As as all of our politics happened to be, especially in the modern media era, But I would say that they're meant to present that Peaceful transition of power s. Oh, they're meant to show that they're meant to symbolize unity, bringing the country together. If if they can, and they're meant to provide in times of severe challenge, as in 18 61 is an 18 64 on DSA. Certainly in 1933 with FDR. They're meant to provide comfort. An aide to the American people and to say here I am the new president. I'm going to work on these challenges. And together we can overcome them was very, uh, I wanted to ask you about sort of the tone. There was a lot of sort of dark Irish messaging around this with, you know, the discussions of the light and the dark. I felt I was reading an old, You know, Irish novel or something, and How much I mean, I my impression, and you would be a better judge. Business was pretty personal speech that he gave that I didn't feel like the riders missed the person here, and sometimes they do. No, I think that's absolutely right. He didn't tend to become tearful would certainly in mode, and actually, this is more like the bushes. The Bushes were well known both father and son and a whole family forgetting tearful on and after four years of the president who didn't vote at all about anything, either happily or sadly. I found myself becoming Bearcat clamp. Just even seen Joe Biden take the oath of office. So I think that Bill Clinton helped to make his career by dealing people's pain, telling them that he did and genuinely feeling their pain. I think Joe Biden, as he said in this inaugural address. I thought this was very poignant where he said you in effect. You never know what fate is going to deal you. And we all know his story. And we know fate has dealt him really bad hands over the years. So there was this triumph I thought of his overcoming that but being able to say to the people I can empathize with you. I empathize with you families. You 400,000 families who've lost people to the virus. You know my story and I will help the whole country to overcome this professor period wanted to ask you for all the talk of unity, and I thought, you know President Biden. I've got to get used to saying that Was sober about the reality that people may look, you know, suspect at that at this moment, What do you think His next steps are in terms of actually achieving that with the enormous agenda, beginning with immigration in the stimulus bill? Well, it will be hard to be sure, but he I think is following in the footsteps of FDR, who said in his inaugural in addition to We have nothing to fear but fear itself but also said Americans need and want action and action. We will give them And that is what we will see from Joe Biden in this avalanche of executive orders, which has now become the norm in new presidencies, because our legislative system is it's so gridlock. I'm not convinced that hey, can find unity. It won't be easy, and I think if anybody can succeed He can, thanks to Barbara Perry from the University of Virginia's Miller Center, coming up the Biden administration's policy on China. How different will it be? I ask Elizabeth economy from Stanford. That's next. You're.

Amanda Gorman's books jump to bestsellers after inaugural poem

"The dawn is hours before we knew it. Somehow we do it. Somehow we've weathered in witnessed a nation that isn't broken but simply unfinished we the successors of a country and the time were a skinny black girl. Descended from slaves and raised by a single mother can dream of becoming president only to find herself reciting for one that was amanda gorman the inaugural youth poet lawyer it reading from her poem. At the hill we climb which she read at joe biden's inauguration alexandra alter profiled gorman and interviewed her joining us now to talk a little bit more about that hey alexandra hey pamela so this was a really exciting week in washington but i most loved about the news events. This week was that a poet was the breakout star of the inauguration ceremony on wednesday. Amanda gorman was the youngest inaugural poet and us history. She joins a very elite class of poets. Only been a handful of poets who have performed it including robert frost my ngelo elizabeth richard blanco. So she really brought a lot to this performance. And when i spoke to her what was really interesting to me was. She felt enormous pressure. Not just because of the size of the audience she was going to be addressing. Tens of millions of people potentially watching the events at home but because of the state of the country she felt real responsibility to present a poem that reflected joe biden's inaugural theme of america united and. She said they didn't give her any specific guidelines but they said that's the three million inauguration but she also really wanted to address. What has happened recently in the country. Particularly the partisan divisions that we've seen the political violence the effects of the pandemic. It's a really dark moment. And so she was kind of trying to counter johnston to forces the potential for unity. But also these deep divisions that we're seeing in the country now so interestingly. She was really struggling with the poem. The inaugural committee reached out to her late december. She had a few weeks to work on it and was kind of she said it's like it felt like climbing a mountain would do a few versus a day and then on january six. We all watched across the country as the unfolded at the capital. There was the insurrection. There and rioters stormed the capital. And amanda gorman at that point had written about half of her poem and she stayed up late into the night and finished it because she just felt this urgency. And so you're there are verses in the poem that reflect what we saw that day the other thing that she said that was interesting about how she prepared to write it was. She said she always starts with historical research so she studied speeches from leaders who really brought their countries together. In times of crisis she looked at speeches by winston. Churchill abraham lincoln martin luther king junior and she listened to music that inspired her including the musical hamilton. There are a couple of hamilton references within the poem. That some people caught including lin-manuel miranda who was very appreciative of her poetry. So it's been incredible to see their response to her work after she gave this really kind of inspiring performance her books. She has two books coming out this year. Actually three because they're releasing the poem she wrote as a standalone and she has now the number one and number two books on amazon and this is a poet who is twenty two years old and she's preparing to publish her debut collection. This fall so she's gone incredibly quickly from somebody who had following and was pretty well known in the poetry world to kind of national literary star and one other thing that i loved about her performance and her approach to it which she talked about how she felt like she was representing not just her own words but representing poetry itself representing american poetry and y you know it was important to have poetry part of the ceremony. She said when. I spoke to her now more than ever. The united states needs an inaugural poem. Poetry is typically the touchstone that we go back to when we have to remind ourselves of the history that we stand on the future that we stand for so i thought it was lovely that she felt that she was standing up in front of the capital. Two weeks after the insurrection took place kind of representing poetry as a form that can unite the country.

Ted Cruz under fire for saying Biden prioritizing 'citizens of Paris' by rejoining climate deal

"President joe biden. It's weird to say it after four years of president. Donald trump but president joe biden will be rejoining the non-binding paris climate accord something that donald trump of course pulled the united states. Out of back in two thousand seventeen. Now before i get into the details of how ted cruz is whining and crying about it. Let me just warn you guys and remind you in case you might have forgotten that it is a non binding international agreement with more than two hundred different countries Signing onto it agreeing that they are gonna try hard to lure carbon emissions in order to Help at least mitigate the impact of climate change now. Ted cruz doesn't like this and is either pretending to be stupid or is incredibly stupid by saying by rejoining the paris climate agreement president biden indicates. He's more interested in the views of the citizens of paris. That in the jobs of citizens of pittsburg this agreement will do little to affect the climate and will harm the livelihoods of americans. So i'm gonna let you take it away for minute was because i'm curious what you think about this argument by senator cruz. I mean he's stupid but the only thing interesting about how stupid it is because it's coming from ted cruz. The guy before. He decided he wanted to be. President of this country was considered to be the sort of intellectual arm of the republican party. Right like you supposed to be part of that like You know ivy league sort of in dub out q. You in a debate. Ted cruz was always the guy that certain types of conservatives would be like. Oh they don't want to get in the ring with ted cruz. He'll eat him alive because of his alleged alleged superior intellect and ever since he decided to run for president he's thrown all of that out the window and decided to eat the monkey brains man like this guy has completely lost his mind right publicly. Anyway in his shamelessness and willingness to do or say anything that he thinks will curry favour amongst republican base. So it's like you just can't take anything he says seriously anymore. And it's a shame because this is one of the one hundred guys. We have in the united states senate. It's it's sad. It's incredibly sad absolutely and so obviously the paris. Climate accord isn't about france. It isn't about paris. It's about climate change and it involves an international negotiation that took place in paris. Which is why. It's called the paris climate accord. This is something that representative alexandria ocasio. Cortez pointed out in response to ted cruz. Insanely stupid tweet. She writes nice. Tweet senator cruz. Quick question do you also believe the geneva convention was about the views of the citizens of geneva asking for everyone who believes us. Senator should be competent and not undermine our elections to incite insurrection against the united states. So what she's implying. That last part is that ted cruz had absolutely no problem. Disenfranchising voters from places around the country including pittsburgh So in addition to voting against the certification of pennsylvania's account. He also tried to get the supreme court to toss out the state's vote. It's also worth mentioning by the way that hits bergh Credibly supportive of the paris. Climate

"That means that his people his entire operation is really going to have to hit the ground running incredibly quickly when they take over in particular because they also have not gotten that much help that much cooperation from the trump administration in the transition. Suzanne joe biden has of course being in the white house during one previous dramatic intervention in the united states economy. When he and barrack obama arrived in the wake of the two thousand eight collapse will he be tempted towards something similar in the current circumstances or preceding more on the assumption that wants the vaccine is taking effect. The us economy will more or less sort itself out. Well it's it's a very good point. Under i mean i think there are lots of parallels here actually to what obama faced obama joe biden back into into a nine and you know even between the election on the inauguration i mean america. I'm particularly america then. The wider world was embroidered the biggest financial crisis in decades. And they have to deal with that. So yes there are a lot of parallels i think joe biden has a proven record on this and they were able to pass the tariff act. They did the the bailout fund for the auto industry hugely complex pieces of legislation. Where a lot of money involved. And that may well be the case. Again i mean the. Us economy at the figures december have been worrying. There has been worst. Jobless figures than had been expected am the signs of recovery. We saw in the late summer. You know really didn't continue as we kind of got into that second. Wave around thanksgiving time so i think the economic consequences. This you know are really not getting. Maybe enough attention here. Obviously so at the figures are overwhelming in terms of the deaths the infection rates and but there's also a huge impact on the economy. And i think we're going to see i. I believe around the world. It's it would probably accentuate this. You know the difference between the house and the have nots. If you like you know the poorer are are people who are have lost. Their jobs are in less secure. And yes we're seeing the stock market. Do very very well throw twenty twenty and a lot of people. You know hoarding cash. Essentially as saving. So these kind of issues i think are going to be front and foremost for joe biden particularly. I mentioned already because of this very strong left wing within his party. They want joe biden. Who who has been pivoting. More to the left economically i think for example compared to say a hillary clinton at the time you know four years ago and i think he has suggested you know with his pick johnny yet and his treasury secretary. She talked about for example. The need to address structural issues economic inequality along racial and gender lines in the united states describing how they are important for the economy to address that. So you know what he's going to do in terms of getting more covert relief. Package is going to be a key element of this first one hundred days in parallel to the huge logistical challenge of getting those vaccinations out trying to encourage people to get vaccinated etc and again. This is all going to depend on his relationship with congress and these are going to be. It's going to be a lot of money involved in this and Republicans in particular in the sandwich have been At loggerheads with democrats out late twenty twenty about the size and scope of a of any rescue package for the american economy and you know commentators ironic air pointing out the national dash went way up under trump a now are we going to start hearing republicans complaining about the national debt. So i think that whole aspect as i say in parallel to the the health issue is going to be a key concern for biden in the first few months presidency. Chris susanne mentioned there a couple of members of president-elect biden's domestic team we should talk about obviously the highest profile member of that domestic team which vice president-elect kamala harris do. You anticipate that she'll be a more visible and obviously engaged vice president than usual because it's going to be a very different relationship. Between her and president biden vice president biden had with president barrack. Obama perhaps ironically as things have turned out biden. wasn't really seen as a natural apprentice. successor To the much younger president he was he was running alongside whereas you already. Since there's a a feeling gathering kamla harris's president in waiting. Well i think To continue the two thousand two thousand nine parallels in in some ways. This is a sort of the reverse of that. As as you're discussing. Because i think when joe biden came into office as vice president he sort of provided the experienced the heft to the to the obama administration as the time as the sort of political establishment candidate for you know a relative neophyte in barack obama at the time and so his role You know he was. Obviously you also had before that dick. Cheney famously is maybe the vice president who really transformed the role but joe biden sort of ran with that and he was this You know incredibly powerful Very involved vice president as involved if not more involved than dick. Cheney was as vice president you know before that vice presidency often was seen as this very unimportant role and so i think in that sense perhaps looking now to kamala harris In some ways there's a reverse there because she is not the one providing the heft if you will joe biden is now even more experienced than he was back then so he will be the the fully experienced leader if you will in this campaign In this in this white house And so the question will be in that sense. What kind of room. He is willing to give kamala harris. What exactly she is going to put her stamp on In terms of us. And i think that's still a bit of an open debate. He obviously picked kamala harris because they have a good working relationship. She is somebody who was Arguably more of a centrist than some of the other candidates that he could have picked. You know she's not from the bernie sanders wing of the party. I think that was important because in wanted to pick somebody not only who was historic in terms of being a woman. I african american as well in the vice presidency But really somebody that he could have a good working relationship with in order to use her as both a trusted adviser and entrust her with leading on certain issues. So i think it will be very interesting to see how that relationship plays out and finally as you say as one point he obviously has not expressly said it but many would assume. There's a very good chance that joe biden will be a one term president and so in that sense. Yes this is. Come a harris's chance to really show that she is the one who will take up the mantle of being the leader of the democratic party of the future christchurch. Mac thank you for the moment.

"Will you know what he was adamant. It was that at certain point along the way. If he was gonna try to be the nominee of this party he couldn't be serving the wreckage of all of these wounded opponents. He needed a party. That was capable of pulling itself together and summoning some kind of unified strength. And i think there is some truth to that that the moments when he was able to He didn't he didn't extend the shift quite as vigorously as he might of now. I think there's also a piece of this. it was. It happened to be his this point in his life where he's not gonna do that but it turned out to be to use kind of more technocratic structural explanations turned out to be strategically astute to have done it that way i will also you know. I'm that kind of the point that you made about kind of where our heart lies with these guys. It's funny to me too. I'm sort of fascinated by joe biden. Any one of the reasons why. I've been gravitating over the years to him as a character as a person to write about is precisely because he's so different than me. I mean i am like fairly intro- introverted. I don't you know why generally spend my life sitting at a keyboard. I get to the end of the day of talking to people and i'm like totally exhausted and he is completely the opposite and i find that as somebody as a student of politics i find that really interesting why it is that you can have somebody like that. That is able to be functional in that way. And i've always just been purely interested in it from persona perspective. Come back after a short break in today's business.

"Obama tried to logic his way through politics too much. There's something about in feels about other people to he doesn't like advisers who he thinks they. Just approach everything cerebral. He wants to feel like they're they have some guttural sense of people and politics and that like biden. There is a process of politics. Biden thinks you have to go through of relationship building of trust building of negotiating that has to happen irrespective of whether or not of where you end up like. Even if you know where you should end up you still have to go through the process and that like biden delights in the process and why obama simply doesn't and that i think is actually like it is a part of how he thinks it'd be a different president than obama and also part of how he might actually be a different president from obama. I'm curious how you you handicap that it's you know what i think is fascinating in is the both obama and biden. Somebody said to me at one point the reason why the relationship work is the both of them thought that he was the to the other and the flip side of that of course is what you were getting at. Which is that each one could also be a little bit patronizing about the other and in a way that complimented them now. I think the reason why this then becomes really important in terms of of biden's conception of of the deal and i you know i one of the things i draw attention to in the book is if you do a textual analysis of my interviews with them over the years that phrase in the deal comes up over and over and over again. It's sort of been poisoned. Unfortunately by bob. Donald trump's use of the word deal but for biden. It is deeply felt. And i think what you what you begin to see that it paid off for him in some very specific concrete ways in this campaign the big question. A lot of people of course had was like how did this guy go from being more or less dismissed by the political process and to some degree by the public in the beginning of the campaign to then all of a sudden consolidating as fast as he did and the reason he did at is as you mentioned briefly about by about bernie sanders saying look. Joe biden has had a better relationship with me. I had with hillary clinton he actually listens to what i'm talking about. An i heard versions of that from people all across the the party spectrum even people progressive activists who said look joined the task forces kind of with low expectations but to be perfectly honest. I was kinda shocked at the degree to which they were willing to listen to me. That doesn't mean that he then embraces their ideas whole hog. But i think we sometimes under appreciate the body language of politics and the body language of politics can partly include the idea that somebody does not think that you are an idiot and that is part of like joe. Biden's core philosophy is. I will never come into a room and treat you like an idiot. I think it's then plays out in a really important way in the democratic primary. So i when. I hear all this like i completely. Discount these arguments from joe biden. I am much more on the bob like cooley. Technocratic side of way. I tend to operate in politics which is great. Because i don't run for things. And i just write articles and do podcast. That's fine but.

"He's getting older all the republican suggesting. He's getting senile. But it's really not a rhetorically deft campaign that is definitely not what is happening in in twenty twenty and i think oh eight is like there's a real sense of arrogance about what joe biden represents like he knows best like he represents like the the the voice of the democratic party of it's like working class roots you know he's more experienced nobody else on the stage. I'll do a better job again. Twenty twenty. what's notables like how open he is to the other players on the stage the relationship before ges with bernie sanders. How much he gives the left a voice in his campaign once he wins the primary through the the biden bernie taskforce's like there's a real thing that happens in between here where this idea like. Joe biden as america's empathic. Kindly uncle is absolutely to how i would have described. Joe biden no eight where. He was like america's arrogant foreign policy. Hand whose idea was he could be as condescending republicans on these issues as they were to democrats before like i just. I feel like. I've never been able to fully communicate how how different this is but it is really different. Yeah you know what's funny. Is i totally agree. There is a really fascinating little moments. That begin to evoke this. For instance i was interviewing jill biden and she was talking about the decision when her husband was trying to side whether to become the vp and he had been invited by candidate obama to be the vice president. And joe biden's first reaction was was like i don't want that job that's a no-name job. He actually asked people stabbed. He said can any of you. Name abraham lincoln's vice president. So it was this kind of slightly ridiculously. Grandiose self conception the good for the vice presidency and joe biden's response to him was hold on a second believe that the iraq war is a disaster. It should be addressed. You believe in making progress on race in america. These are the things they brought you into politics. you're having given the opportunity to be the vice president of the first african-american president american history. And you're gonna say no. And he did say no to the first invitation and he said yeah. But how. Am i going to work for somebody. I've been my own boss for forty years and her answer was grow up and i think there's something fascinating i say this you know. Look anybody who's got a spouse will probably recognize this story. There is a way in which one spouse can say to. You like that even if you are yells at that point. He's a whatever he has. Twenty five term senator In in the thick of his life. And that's part of this process of him than going into the administration. And frankly growing up. And i think part of that was coming to terms with the ways in which he still had a lot to learn a lot of things to change not just in terms of tactics and practice but really beginning to understand what it meant to be. Not just a senator but actually the key person the person at the very top who is the object of people's moral attention you know who they looked to to be a representative of our values and one hopes at least pointing us in a direction not just part of the chorus so one of my rules and pull the presidential journalism is that candidate. Books are way richer than they're given credit for these weirdly. They we condescend towards these books so much but actually find. They're almost always super luminated about who who people want to be in the role that how they want to be seen. So i'd read earlier in the cycle. Biden's oh a book which is interesting a good book about biden and then i just recently a little bit to my regret read Promise me dad..

"That's what you need and he's gonna try to work around it. But that's i think distinctive about him that he doesn't he doesn't think in a deal that he's gonna turn you or be you. He just thinks he's gonna find some way to make what he's doing work for you given what you already believe you need. I think that's that's correct. I totally agree with that. And look and i think that exposes him to the rest which Which many of us know which is that that can sometimes allow him to accept terms. That are less ambitious than what somebody who is more adamant about their ability to persuade would go for and part of that is the senatorial mindset. Which is his belief is. I might not get one hundred percent of the way there on day one. I might get signed. Might get a. I might get three quarters of the way there and then tomorrow we're gonna come back. We're going to talk about something else. Your romeo bone and on and on it goes and i can. I can sort of imagine listeners. Hearing that and being like that's exactly the problem of of how we got into this mess. Is this kind of constant cascade of compromises. And i think that his view would be that to have a functioning government. You're gonna have to lose some battles because you know that in the long run. You're gonna win some battles. One thing that i think has made this easier for by into do. Is that in a fashion. That makes him somewhat confusing to a lot of us. Who are not this way. He's not super ideological his over. Time are pretty mutable. Yup he doesn't seem to me to have a an ideological project in the way. A lot of people who enter politics do and that can seem hollow in certain ways but then but then later on i think could be an advantage. I mean what do you think. Biden has been eighty logically over his career. The ideology of it does not conform to what we think of as the usual locations on the spectrum the single abiding ideological fact is his belief in fairness and you can define that in a lot of different ways but it goes back to his very core of his understanding. I mean like a lot of joe biden stories. This one involves his mother or his father telling him something. But in this case it happens to come from vow and val told me that his mom is. My mom was a wonderfully ferocious and interesting character and she said to them. Listen you are no better than anybody else and you are no worse than anybody else and that can sound sort of like the usual. Old pablum accepted in their house. It was a big deal. I mean his dad was a used car salesman who once was at a at an event in which the owner of the dealership suit as a stunt through a bucket of silver dollars out on the floor and then watched all of the employees scurry around and pick them up and his dad was just kind of mortally offended by this and walked out of the thing and lost his job in the process. And there's a piece of joe biden. It's that combination of having a little bit of a chip on your shoulder and also believing that there is something philosophically offensive about lording over somebody else that runs through the entirety of his career. And i think that piece of it which turns out to have at various moments. It's it at various moments and has policy relevance like he really was actually beginning to think about the working class before everybody else was talking about it. A couple of you know we talk about that in a minute. But that's the through line that carries him to today..

"It's much more. There's much more concrete moments to hold onto the senate career so it's easy as a pundit or city will look voted for this and then you voted for that and i think becomes quite different than the obama era but i wanna go back even further. Hair joe biden. I think people know and we can talk about it. The terrible tragedy that marks the beginning of his career politics he's elected to the senate twenty nine his wife and his daughter are killed in a car. Accident and his two sons are injured. Broken bones brain damage. I mean it's a level of horror that you almost can't stay on the face. But i want actually before that because he runs for senate at twenty nine with no real political experience as far as they can hell no animating issue. I've just had this conversation. Roms from for for today. explain it. He was like why does biden run. Like what needs guy to get into politics. And as much as i've read all the biden books and talk to him. And i actually realized that i don't think anything does but but you may have a better. What is your answer to that. Why does this guy run at twenty nine. Well i think it began for him actually as a bit of a sense that he had a guest and i know we sometimes joke. This sound funny to people now but remember at at that point in his life. He was an extraordinary. He was considered an extraordinarily charismatic speaker. And somebody who really could generate a lot of attention from the press from the people he encountered he had these great events and i think that's precedes his decision to go into politics. Because i know you know. It's tempting to studios roll our eyes at stories of him stuttering because that can feel like it's being used as a political prop but it is a really big deal in terms of understanding his psychology because he went for being a person is he said to me who could not speak and was constantly an roundly humiliated for that fact to being somebody who was suddenly because he was he will themselves to be able to give these speeches by memorizing declaration of independence. All these things we've heard about that. Created a kind of preternatural confidence in his ability to will himself into different situations and that then becomes fused with this generational understanding of politics. He was running remember it nineteen seventy-two. He was an anti war candidate. He was running against world war. Two vet. joe biden was running on the side of environmentalism. He was running for these issues. That were all to a man reflective of as his advertisements put it in the newspaper. Joe biden understands. What's happening now. And i think rather than sort of having a specific philosophical motive. The way barack obama obviously was like really believed in this transcendent possibility of politics as embodied by his own story. It was more than joe biden. Saw that he had the ability to get people excited about the issues quote unquote and in that moment in that time the issues over twenty nine year old democrat..

"Joe Biden is trying to do something similar and in speaking of FDR, how does Joe Biden's agenda to build back better with trillions upon trillions of spending compared to the platforms of previous presidents Democratic or Republican so it's it's just a massive agenda in terms of of dollar amounts I think his green energy. Plan alone is about twice the size of Obamacare in terms of tenure spending, which is remarkable. Obamacare was a major achievement and he's proposing several plans that dwarf it and size. I haven't done the exact math with the new deal but I suspect you would come up with something similar. The the new deal in dollar terms is is not as large as you would think, it's the regulatory structures and new agencies that they set up that that we remember it for I. Think what's different about Biden is especially in comparison to FDR. Part of by people admire FDR and we remember him. The way we do is that he tried everything that he saw this world historic crisis and said, I'm not just going to set up one government agency that hires people to do public works. I'm going to set up like five of them and have five people I trust, run them and see. Who Wins a he called it bold persistent experimentation and I don't see that as much with Joe. Biden. He has a handful of things that he wants to do. There's less of a throw everything at the wall and see what sticks approach, but it is similar in in the kind of grandiosity of the plans and the scale of spending that he's imagining..

"Say sitting here on the last day of August that the pandemic will certainly be the main voting issue on election day. But based on our entire experience of this year, the pandemic and the economic devastation that has created are really the foundational context for everything else that's talked about in this race and the good news for Joe, Biden is that For now, and for nearly the entirety of the year, those are issues where the president has been at a disadvantage. What's complicated? Joe Biden is that the specific places where he needs to win in order to carry the electoral college are places where the law and order message and the message about crime and rioting, and vandalism and disorder. Can have distinctive appeal even within the context of the pandemic. That's the Concern for Democrats. That's the concern for the Biden campaign that there will be a population of moderate voters. Mainly White voters in the suburbs of the Midwest who will feel some kind of tension between how they feel about the president's handling of the pandemic and who they trust on issues of law and order and that some tiny sliver of those people might be more than a tiny sliver. But all it would take would be a pretty modest share of those voters flipping back to president trump to suddenly make the advantage that Joe Biden has in the Mid West look much much more.

"It doesn't have shame and can say things without feeling that the need compelled to say sorry if they are wrong or if they hurt somebody so I wanted to really get philosophical which. We don't always have the chance and the time to do with presidential candidates get philosophical about the notion of apologizing. And how does the former vice president compete with somebody like the President? Here's what he said. No I'm never gonNA stooped to where he is. I'm not going to do what he does. He says so many outrageous things and To usually divide separate When I say something. That is understandably retrospect offensive to someone and legitimately offensive making. It look like take him granted. I Apologize I don't apologize for every mistake. I make a lot of them. Don't have any consequence. I mean the the point I was making is and I said this to his face like you say dumpings. Now we're all human. We all have the tendency to say things that we don't mean or regret Joe Biden as he says with a laugh the good news people know him. The bad news is people know him and this is one of the things that they know about him. And so this is the way that he has to navigate. This going forward is still a work in progress. It's pretty clear I've got to wonder if somehow authenticity is going to be an aid for Joe Biden and because you know throughout his life. We've been covering him now for decades. He's never been someone who's going to be as brash and unapologetic as Donald Trump. But the one thing that Donald Trump also is is completely authentically himself or this persona at least that he's developed for himself that he feels completely comfortable in and so it'll be interesting to see if Joe Biden's own authenticity. Which as you say you know. There are a lot of mistakes. There is a lot of fumbling if that will actually help him in that But I want to quickly turn to vice president stuff because this is the fun stuff that everyone wants to talk about and talked to Biden about this. You asked him if you commit to picking a woman of color..

Because he's really a sharp guy on stuff like they invite him on everything and You know I talked with him all the time. I'm really proud of waves become. Here's the deal. We have two choices in November. Both of them are white men in the seventies. I happen to belong to several country clubs. I have been privy to some jaw-dropping conversations in the locker room at the nineteenth hole on the course I've been privy to some conversations what you're hearing or what you heard him say is nothing nothing compared to what they say. This is just the stuff that you getting to clips of folks. Let's stop playing around here. You heard some of the stuff. Donald Trump is. See if you can tell me that. Donald Trump has not trumped that statement times fifty squared. And I got news with what he's really saying at Milagro in a golf course and in the board room is is amazing. These UH seventy some your white man now do you. Give them a pass for that. No all but you also don't give him a pass by not voting that try and not do you can't take your vote him not to and use it against Joe Biden because he said something. You didn't like which means you're like you always say Steve. If you don't provide them it's a sure. Vote for trump. Hey can I can. I say this and I'm talking to Tommy and J. Right now in June we have said some stuff amongst ourselves bit not ten not come out bet not to Gore. Does a news feed line redone? I know in the worst one was I do me. I don't know we're talking about your former marriage is all right. We're going to take a break right here and we're GONNA come right back and continue this subject Steve That's coming up at thirty four minutes after the hour right after this. You're listening to Marty morning. Show all right so Steve. Before we went to break we were talking about Joe Biden. And you know the comment. He made a black voters. Vote for trump. Then they ain't black. A lot of people were up in arms about it Upset about the fact that he said that you know he's apologized. Of course for those comments. It didn't really bother me. I knew he was trying to be funny. And trying to just talk to Charlemagne trying to make a statement Philip man like I said I have heard White Museum in the Seventies. Make some statements at golf courses in board rooms sitting around joking and man. That's nothing and then I just looked at what Donald trump is saying with. No apologies attached to anything for during. Cobbler right now. This is the one that threw me. There's my African American. Oh he says excuse me you have one but it was so right after the P. Word Calm in and find the stormy all in porno that it just get away from things that he said about immigrants this stuff but the thing about it is. I think the problem comes in is when people get mad about that statement especially black people and we decided to hold our vote back and not vote for by because he made that statement. You know what I mean back to be the problem this coming November. If the you know that's the problem served and very dangerous shallows and like you say if you do if you're not if you're holding back because you're mad at Biden then that is vote for trump. That's what that is but y'all come on. Now come on look. These are two seventy year old white man. You really. If you GONNA be mad about that one I got news the stuff. That's really been saying you. You would be devastated. Let's let's move past. Let's find something else because explain some y'all the Republican Party. Don't Nick Pick people this way? And can I say this? The one of the main reasons Joe Biden is going to be. It looks like the Democratic candidate is because he's Joe Biden and he's been known to you know say things like this when he was vice president under Obama and people loved him for now. We're nitpicking like you say now we're nitpicking the things that come out of his mouth. I think he's being extra careful. Actually I don't think he's the unleashed joe that he was under Obama. Look Hey look what he said after the after the fall for the pushback of course not. He apologized how many times donald trump apologize. Siete sat one so lane things that you forget. Y'All y'all steel. Don't forgotten that he didn't separate it all those immigrant kids from mothers. See yanna forgot about that. Y'All know that quietly. He trying to push them right on back over the border right now. Don't pay attention to this right here. He does so much stuff he's A. He's an expert at D. DEFLECTIONS. That he just doesn't get and now this conversation about if if how do you about this statement cause up hear people say if he doesn't pick a black woman for president for his vice presidential running nominee that he's finished. How do you feel about that? Wow I agree with that. I think just the opposite white ladies. Dome that's what I'd say. Well you know the end you know. I've I say that I think that Black the black people that are really into it like that and make think that he owes black people something and all of that from Mike America. Yeah and because they know that we as black people are the vote democratically and we're going to put him in office. Those are the ones that are mad. I want my bigger issue is getting donald trump out. Now whether that's with a black woman or with a white woman I want. Donald trump out some people think camps. Since a black person picked him he should pick somebody exactly Alabama pick by. Well we come back. I WANNA I wanNA say something about this state. I will be back with more of the Steve Harvey Morning. Show and to continue this discussion. Right after this. You're listening to your show all right. Welcome to Steve Harvey Morning Show politics. We're in their like swimwear. It is more this morning. So go ahead Steve. We were talking about the statement that Joe Biden. Make if you don't vote for him you're not black stuff like that. You know black. Yeah you ain't I mean. Look he said it kind of like. He said he apologized. I look I don't care I got no time to get hung up on that. You know what do you mean? We ain't black now. Come on man come. He shouldn't have said it. He apologized. How many times has donald trump says something with no apologies? He and he never will. He's not that guy because he doesn't care how you feel on. Think he only cares about himself is so that right. There is a huge difference between him and Joe Biden and Democrats man we sit on TV and we try to play this self righteous thing and doll him for saying this. We are better. Get on his doll trump for what he said they caused. The Republicans are not going to do it. If you cut on Fox Donald Trump can do no wrong. Now if you're thinking that if Joe Biden picks a black woman for VP. Then that'll mean that black people are thinking that what's the black agenda. Let me for want everybody about something. You cannot run for the presidency of the United States with a black agenda. They are not going to allow that. Because you are the president of the United States Obama to enter that you you talked about coming here some specifically for Black.

"Right now. In the wake of that accusation there was a lot of media scrutiny of Lucy Florez and the important context to remember here is that this was during the Democratic. Party's primary season when Joe Biden was just one candidate in a field of dozens right so lots of people started questioning. Lucy Flora's motivations people like Whoopi Goldberg and John McCain Daughter Megan McCain in the old days we would call Joe some folks of a certain age would say he's a little overly familiar yes but most politicians. When they're you know doing this with you and you know they are and Joe is Joe is a hands on Kinda guy. I always wonder when these things come out. What is the motive she said on? Jake tapper that her politics it was politically motivated. And she says politics was definitely impetus at some point tar read as Lucy. Floors was getting attacked by Particularly some high profile commentators show called the view which is kind of a popular daytime. Show over here She came out said look. I was former staffer for Joe by us to do that to me. A meeting would run his fingers through my hair struck a neck. And so you know. I believe Lucy floors. I think that you know what she's saying is true. And this is back in two thousand nine hundred and that was that was the extent of what Tari came forward with that is that is basically the extent of what she came. Forward with Biden issued kind of blanket. General apology to all women get ever touched in an uncomfortable way. Kind of apologized for his over. Familiarity is his lack of respect for personal space and he moved on from there. I hear they're saying I understand it and much more mindful. That's my responsibility responsibility. And I'll I'll always believe governing quite frankly life for that matter is about connecting the people that will change but I will be more mindful respectful people's personal space and that's a good thing..

"Again. It was at the Hamptons summer gala held by the Greek Orthodox Church surely heard regardless. We were both there and get this. I'd actually seen Joe Biden there before maybe three or four years ago and frankly he was gregarious energetic almost operatic in his speech patterns but this last time I saw him which was just a few months ago he was looked. Kind of slow muted. I mean people could hardly hear him even with a Mike which has never been a problem for Joe Biden and honestly it did worry me and it kind of it made me kind of sad and it did affect my view on him as a candidate but regardless that all changed last. Tuesday that all change. How did it chain? Why did it change? Well let's talk about it. So before. The voting ensued on Super Tuesday. Virtually all polls and news outlets agreed that even the best case scenarios for Biden would have likely ended up with him trailing Bernie Sanders in the overall delegate count even if at the end of the day he was trailing Bernie by fifty seventy may be even one hundred delegates that still would have been considered a good night for Biden. Well folks all I said as I sit here ladies and Gentlemen Joe Biden Leads Bernie Sanders by a total of ninety one delegates ninety one. That is not a small number now. How is that possible? How could that be? They said the best case scenario was well. Frankly four Joe Biden. A miracle took place. Biden collected a bonanza of important endorsements two Saturdays ago after a landslide victory in South Carolina. Pete Buddha judge he dropped out. I like two days before Super Tuesday. Which really bothered me. He had been my candidate. I still think he would have been great. Then Amy Klobuchar dropped out in both endorsed Biden. Then on Super Tuesday Joe Biden went out and won ten of fourteen states. I won't say that again. Ten out of fourteen.

"And then at one point Biden, grabs one of the kids shoulders and says, I got permission to do this to joke the same joke, and so in people laughed in the room as that joke was made but outside the room, it of got a bit of a different reaction Twitter lit up, and you and I had been talking for the last several days like what is he going to do with this appearance on Friday is he going to address these remarks at all he just going to let that be the video that he posted earlier in the week to deal with the allegations of that had been made. And this was just going to be a standard speech. And it was it was a surprise to me that he even went there in any way whatsoever. Because I would have thought he would thought this isn't the. Venue for that I handled that I think sufficiently enough to get me through these this next period. But no, he actually he brought this up. Obviously didn't go the way you and he said Twitter lit up. So then what happened? So he made that off the cuff comment, and then some reporters had gathered outside the hotel just in case, he decided to come out and talk to us. We had no heads up, and suddenly we see him walk out the door and walk straight to reporters. And just off the top say, look, I didn't mean for it to come out the way that it did that I wasn't trying to make light of people's feelings. So it was very clear that he or maybe his team got the message immediately that outside of that room. People weren't finding this funny as they briefed him. They said you're gonna have to clean this up something to that effect. I would imagine. And yet or let this is now this is what fascinates me so much about this moment for Joe Biden, even as he's trying to clean up something that wasn't received in you know, in the way that he wanted to be received. And that I think I heard saying that guy. He wasn't joking. It wasn't a joke to him. Right. Like that was just him trying to deal with the new reality. And informing everyone that he did indeed get permission to have a physical interaction with the kid with the union trying to make a point that he has these kinds of interactions so often that he's on a campaign trail and someone will come up to him. And and we'll they'll maybe give him a hug, he'll give them a hug, they'll give him a handshake. He was trying to reinforce that. This is this is what happens with Joe Biden. And that maybe it was interpreted as a joke. Maybe people didn't like the way that it came out. But he didn't mean anything by it and get as he's trying to say, no, no, I get it. I I need to adjust some of my behaviors he also seemed to be delivering a message that this is who he is. And that he he doesn't want to change the human empathy piece of the Biden portfolio if you will which is a. Big part of his public persona. So while he wants to say, I'm learning, and I get it. He also wants it seems to me he wanted a little bit of both ways. Which is. Yes, these women should express what they're expressing their voices. Need to be heard. I will listen I get this. There are new rules that play. And yet this is what has happened my whole life. This is how we interacted with in politics. He it seemed to me he was trying to have it both ways at the same time. Right. It's gonna be a really difficult line for him to walk because he is trying to be respectful of women, and maybe even men who don't feel comfortable in their encounters with him. But this is who he is. He's been doing this for over forty years. And so that's going to be interesting to watch to see how he changes that. Someone did ask him is going to impact how you act on the campaign trail going forward. And he said, yes and said that that's fine that it's a good thing. And that's maybe things need to change. But in practice, I'm interested to see how this all. Actually plays out one of the reasons why say he's maybe trying to have it. Both ways is not the right way to say this..
