The highs & lows of last nights presidential debate
"So I watched all of the Democratic debate last night and I thought it was a mess. I did an interview Last night with my friend Mehdi Hassan. Who's an amazing journals? I think one of the best journalists in the world and he has a podcast called deconstructed and I did an interview after the debate with Medi on on the debate and So I felt like I needed to watch from start to finish and so We just got a TV for the first time in our living room and so everybody in my family had to watch the debate with me and they were all begging me to change the channel all night long because it was it was a mess. It was mainly people talking over top of each other. I thought all of the moderators were horrible. They allowed it regularly to get completely out of control. It was hard to even know what the rules are. The policies were in any kind of way of the debate because people were regularly just yelling out attorney speaking over each other. I mean maybe at least a dozen times to different people on a stage would just be talking at the same time and you couldn't understand what either one of them were saying not for one second like for five or ten seconds It was a mess and I'm bothered that. It was a mess because it really needed to be a more substantive debate. It was the last debate not only before South Carolina votes this weekend but before over a dozen different states vote on Super Tuesday this coming week and and so people all over the country needed to to see a substantive sincere debate and by and large you know I tried to track on social media. What all the other campaigns were saying like no campaign was happy that he was just messy for everybody and you know it just it. It begs the question. Like what do the people moderate the debates like? What PREP DO THEY DO? How skilled are they to to even to do this? You know just a random collection of of journalists are just kind of popped up there to ask questions Not a single question and I saw a lot of my friends who were fuming mad about this. Not a single question was asked about climate change not a single question was asked about immigration and immigration crisis. I saw people friends of mine. Who were genuinely generally heard about this instead? You know random questions were asked about Mike. Bloomberg banning large soft drinks in the city of New York is like I don't think the country cares about that and I don't think you ask about that you know over so many other issues like in my interview with Medi- Medicine. He was frustrated. That Bloomberg was never asked any questions about the horrible mistreatment and surveillance that he oversaw of Muslims in New York after nine eleven was deeply bigoted and xenophobic and problematic. So many of my personal friends were regularly harassed by the NYPD ultimately sometimes even by the FBI and CIA and others really at the behest of Michael Bloomberg when he was mayor instead. He's asked about Trans Fats and Lard soft drinks and nobody's asked about climate change or immigration and so just a poorly moderated debate and may as you all know I'm a supporter and surrogate of Bernie Sanders but I ultimately thought that the debate being so poorly moderated ultimately benefits the front runner him and Bernie's the front runner now and because nobody was even really able or capable to emerge out of that debate Like as a star in any kind of way Like Elizabeth Warren nailed the previous debate. And it didn't really give her campaign a boost in the polls anywhere Or or at least not in in Nevada or in South Carolina but she performed well and she fundraise off of it but in this debate nobody performed well and when nobody performs well ultimately that benefits the front runner and because Bernie's the front really benefited him

"Journalist with Aljazeera English and the intercept except he's also host of the deconstructed podcast. Please welcome Mehdi Hassan throw Let's jump straight into the debate just ended. What did you make of it as someone who is just watching it apart from like us? Who was watching it? I think we learned two things from this debate. Number one amy clover shot really really low this Pete Buddha judge that came very clearly I think she was waiting. For this moment you came prepped with the stats lost. Twenty points right right right. She came prepared sunny on. I P Buddha jet. He lost by twenty five points in India office. And the second thing I think we learned is that the Democrats need to running Muslim for president. Because I'll tell you what trevor. You won't find me anywhere near a wine cave. I don't even know what a wine cave the issue. That was an interesting issue. That people were arguing about now. It was like. Do you take money from rich people. Do you take money from big corporations. Do take money from. I'm wealthy donors and that class and that was an interesting argument within the party s with Buddha Jewish saying we need everything we can to be Donald Trump. He has a lot of money. He's raised a lot of money from big donors. We've seen this and so if you don't have enough money you can't compete with one going. No that money becomes part of the problem. So where do you. I think that argument ended on the nights. I think the arguments very. I'm very much team. Warrants on on. This is very clear that if you take money from lots of rich people they expect stuff in return that the history of politics history of American politics particularly you talked about earlier in the show money talks in this country right and the problem with Buddha Jeb that great comeback to Elizabeth Warren. I couldn't be on stage with your rich of the me. There are way older than you as well. I think the problem is with the argument. Is He won't say what Warren says in Santa says which is give as much money as you want. We're not going to give you a job. He won't do that right has it. Rolled out appointing his rich donors to ambassadorships got. Now Look at this Guy Gordon Sunday who testified in the impeachment ambassador to the EU diplomat diplomat. Hotel Dude who gave a million dollars to Donald Trump's inauguration right that is not how you should get jobs in government and if a Democrat say that I think that's a problem for the Democratic Party and for people to Judge Edge. It was an interesting.

"Is that they're reading? So look, the, the fact of the matter is, I think the theme that comes from this conversation today as I hear it in is I hope Americans a hearing this. It's the one about consequences. There are consequences for actions, their consequential consequences for decisions. And right now, we have an administration that have for the for the last two years beyond this issue. Joy, a mini other issues that you have covered in detail on your show. There are no consequences for them. And so at some point, we as American citizens have to help our government account up and down the line for the decisions, and the actions, they take and we to as citizens have to account for that. And when we see in this is not a question of maybe this is happening. This is clearly documented abuse. Use. It's clearly documented mistreatment is clearly documented inhumanity to fellow human beings. That's going on in these in these centers, and we citizens need to account for that. Yes, indeed.

"So cool these things. All right. Let's. Let's get into this. What's going on with, with the aggression, just briefly? Tell you that. House intelligence committee will not enforce their subpoena against a Bill bar. Which was the plan after Wednesday. The Justice department agreed at the eleventh hour to produce redacted material and underlying information from the special counsel report that the panel sought, albeit more slowly than wanted. I mean, there are just stringing this out and we're gonna talk more about this Mehdi Hassan coming on Friday. We're gonna talk more about impeachment, but it is becoming more and more likely it is becoming more and more clear that this is what the administration wants. They think that. Rightly or wrongly they look at Bill Clinton, and I, I've been saying this for, for months. It would not be a rational for them to look at what happened to Bill Clinton in assume, the same thing's going to happen to Donald Trump, which is publicans win seats bad politics while the. The impeachment came in the second term ninety eight in ninety eight. Right. So you help them get reelected. And well, no. It helped I'm saying Trump, if you transfer is that what you're saying? Went up his favorability went up. I mean that's basically it. I mean he went from, you know, maybe, I think in the forties, or fifties of favorability, high forties, low fifties, too close like sixties and mid sixties. In terms of favorability be in fact, the whole movement of move on, was I a function of get move on from the impeachment. And so from their perspective. I think it's quite possible. They believe it's going to help them now. There's really no way to know. There's really no way to know if that's the case people can speculate. I think there's arguments both sides. But what is becoming a parent in terms of the dynamic that was not the case during the Clinton years, is that the cost to Democrats for not impeaching is much higher. Then the cost, it would have been to Republicans in that day and age. So. But we'll talk more about that with medi Hassan. But, but that should be in the back of people's minds because that's what's going on here. We have even the EPA is refusing to provide information to house oversight committees, which, of course, has nothing to do with the which hunt. So this is not about them. This is about them being. I think purposefully. Obstructionist. I mean and the purpose being to convinced Democrats, or to put Democrats into a position, which is basically rock and hard place. And so it's not just a question of goading the, the Democrats into impeachment. It is putting them in two untenable positions. And generally, I think. It's just simply as a as a life rule when you're into untenable positions. Choose the one that actually is just the ethically. Morally right thing to do. I mean, if both both options are going to be problematic for you do the one that makes you feel like that you're not doing a bad thing to never mind, an unstrategic thing, because those tend to end up working out better. Meanwhile, there was a. Confidential IRS legal memo. That was prepared in anticipation by the IRS four Steve Mnuchin anticipating that a Democratic Congress. Would could seek Donald Trump's taxes, and it's a confidential I r s memo or was confidential. Not clear how this. How got out? But the Washington Post got hold of it. Mnuchin has rejected as of last Friday. A subpoena from the House Ways and means committee to turn over the tax returns. This legal memo says the tax returns must be given to congress..

"Well, if that's the case, then lead the policy and makes them declarations that are more definitive than all of the stuff that's coming out of your White House. No, no, absolutely. Right. And when you have this situation that Iran is very worried, so they'd take some preparations. They put some missiles onto some boats. And we see a ha there, plenty. To attack us. So therefore, this is this is a very tense hundred taking in, which misunderstanding could result easily in an attack or justification for an attack at my read on Republican members of the Senate is that they're more split on this than they might be another things. I think there's probably a lot of members of the center of Tom cotton is going around saying how, you know, it would be very easy wants to two strikes. One strike in the last. What is your read on your colleagues in terms of where they would be on this? Well, I think a lot of them understand that Saudi Arabia really wants to essentially pressure on Iran, you have the Sunni leader in the region, and you have the Shiite leader and their traditional enemies and here we are doing it for them. And there's been a lot of Republican resistance to the to the relationship with Saudi Arabia because Saudi Arabia does a lot of things like they femme it terrorism around the world. They proceed to fund the Madris's that cultivate the training for often forces that, that causes trouble. They are the ones driving this war in Yemen, and doing enormous horrific humanitarian damage the worst color epidemic in history. One hundred children on the age of five dying every day there's a lot of resistance Republican side. So when you think about Saudi Arabia tied into this is all right? Senator Jeff Merkley, and I have in New York, come back with you should he be now for more on John Bolton's pushed for war, Ben Rhodes, former deputy national security advisor for strategic communications, President Obama now in MSNBC political contributor and Mehdi Hassan columnist senior contributor at the intercept hosted the deconstructed podcast, also present her on zero englishes upfront. Ben, let me since the senators talked about this, this, to me is the most striking part of this entire thing. We know John Bolton is wanted this for a long time..

"He belongs back in my student. My basement worry belongs commands. Good morning. So you. On reading about all things Trump Russia, of course, all of which pretty much people were tweeting screen shots of your book after the report came out there. Like, right. Just like instead on this page of Malcolm Nance book, then you did like five hours of coverage on the synagogue shooting tear, we are in a full fledged right wing extremist terrorism crisis. Aren't we a gun crisis? You name it in the in the midst of constitutional crisis and president that's not going to protect us from any of it. Well, we're certainly in a crisis where these Neo Nazis white supremacists. And other forms of racists and bigots. Now feel empowered to where they can not just enunciate what they feel, but they feel that they can take action and that they can go out, and they can shoot and kill people with impunity. Interesting fun fact about the shooter in San Diego. I the poor choice of words. But well, you know, we've gotta get as many gotta get the laughs in where we can. I lived in San Diego for eight years as a matter of fact, I was teaching a terrorism survival school of all things and I trained all the local swat and police forces and San Diego's FBI swat out in there and pow way where where the shooting happened in Rancho Bernardo, it's very nice affluent area of the city but further down the fifteen as you're getting into San Diego. There's a mosque and the shooter in this situation in this incident. Yeah. Two days earlier tried to set fire to that moss at one fifteen in the morning. Yeah. And it just shows that all these people were there were a lot of people were coming on air going in the media and saying this is what you know. We're this is what people do to people of the Jewish faith. And this is what Muslims do. Well. No, you have people. Now these white extremists. Yeah. Oltra nationalist, white supremacists. Who view all of? Others as threat Muslim. Christa? They don't care. It's all like running together at this point. And this is the day after Trump doubles down Charlottesville. Right. Says very fine people on both sides of Nazis. You just got back from Germany where my dad was a prosecutor in Berg. Yeah. This I don't even know what to say. I mean, as you know, Trump has been named checked by some of these by the New Zealand and one of them is leading to the other guy named check. Both of those the news the end and Marsh in the tree of Lisin agog, which is your call. That is motive was what ten thousand lies ago. Donald Trump saying Jews Soros's funding. The caravan this kid in San Diego is more of a purist. He didn't he didn't name check, positively Trump. He called Trump race traitor because his daughter Ivanka had married a Jew. I'm sorry. This one named checked Hitler, N Jesus. Yes. Okay. Well, they always do. I want to bring everyone back to the to the original vector of this. That's the original point of origin. Which is Anders Behring breath. And if you really plot to destroy democracy, which is out in paperback, by the way, people get it plot to destroy democracy. Which mainly I would say eighty percent of the book is about how Putin used its intelligence activities and operations to essentially take over Europe political parties and then launched off of Europe through Steve Bannon. Yeah. To bring the NRA the event Jellicoe Donald Trump into the Russian fold. So if you read that book, there's a chapter there and the title of it for you, captain America fans. Hail hydra. Yeah. And he says hail hydra is the mythological not see organizations scientific organization that base itself off of Norse mythology. Yeah. This kid Anders Behring brevity in Norway with practically a believer in this in. At the massage nation the bringing of immigrants into Norwegian society by a liberal government had to be destroyed. The I ten Paris. I three pages of that chapter is about Anders is the description of enders bearing and how we went and massacred seventy eight Norwegians sixty nine of whom were children. Yeah. And it is trial. He said why he did it was because of this influx of immigration that was destroying the white purity of Norway. And then he said I decided that I would have to kill the next generation of Norwegian liberal leadership in order to purify this country. These every person who has been a shooter since copied his manifesto phrase almost phrase for phrase, it starts off with the questions starts off. With who? I am where they make declaration of statement of their white supremacy. There white heritage is always the second paragraph. The third paragraph is why did this and then it ends with a question and answer period. Every one of these shooters has done this exact copy of the manifesto and cluding this guy in San Diego. Yeah. Did you? I guess the the thing I feel like we're really the media even is too afraid to really talk about in a robust way is did you ever think in all your years of serving this country of intelligence work? The we'd have these lunatics name checking the president of the United States or parroting his rhetoric a sitting president that is inciting this kind of violence. In addition to all I mean, we have people from the Mahler team talking now going. Oh, yes, we absolutely thought he committed obstruction of Justice. I mean, I mean, it's just it's hard to wrap your head around. Let's talk about the president being named check by Nazis. Sherlock was. Right. Was was retaliation for supposedly Zealand New Zealand name, check Trump as an inspiration. Yeah. This country long out of there because you can't causative things like that. You can't tell with terrorists. Because those guys are Darris terrorists will just they had that operation plan. They would just looking for an excuse. So there's no causative function there with Donald Trump and even New Zealand shooter said he sees Trump as an inspiration for leadership, but not as a politician. So Donald Trump has become their their figure for whom they think is at least bringing up the subject of what they call the destruction of European culture. Don't forget Trump two years ago went to Poland and gave a speech on the destruction of Europe, Ian, culture. So they listened to Mehdi Hassan who you're on MSNBC with over the last ten years seventy percent of the terrorist related deaths in this country had been at the hands of right wing extremists last year, every single one of the fifty terrorist deaths came at the hands of white Nash. We're transitioning. Travis. Did we get that story too? They just not disband the team that works on this. That's right. Homeland terrorism. Yeah. Right wing extremists intelligence unit. How many reasons do we have to remove them from office? A like yesterday. You're going to have a whole chapter of that my next book literally spelling now, you always end up being right? Just tell us. Well, you know, I don't know as of this point because that you know, your buddy Nancy needs to get on the ball. But yeah, I know I'm a big say, I always say this. I'm a purist. I'm an originalist from Philadelphia. And whenever I feel in doubt. I said this before and plot to destroy democracy and the love I go down to Independence Hall. I think it's really I'm a real Philadelphia. Yeah. And I can feel it. I can feel like when you do your life shots from Philadelphia. And you start off on that. You know, what we wrote here? What I've heard people really like when I point my thumb over my shoulder. I see that building where this happened. These guys. The room. Right. So, you know, I take it very personally when I see the corruption of of the constitution, the corruption of normative American values, and that's why I know you're going to get on me and my mentions going to blow up when Joe Biden put out his video. Yeah. Oh my God. If it didn't bring a tear to your eye than you, really. Then you really need to recalibrate yourself. He started out with Charlottesville, and he called out for his faults than that. He hasn't graded. What we've become and we'll have said before I know the show is my top choice. But boy, he baited Trump Trump walk into that barrel. Rap man, just Kellyanne. Yes. Yeah. What's that clip? Number one. If you want that. Okay. Yes. Right. Defending slave owner. Robert again, okay? Question.

It takes on Omar's comments at a recent event hosted by the council on his Slavic on American Islamic relations. Here are Representative Omar's actual comments. Was founded after nine eleven because they recognize that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties for many on the right cut. Not only the little phrase that snippet some people did something and used that out of context snippet to a sale the congresswoman with some Fox News personalities, even questioning her loyalty to the United States. Some people did something like it unprovoked attack killing people in the gone thousands of the Pentagon and the fight ninety three as well. As in the World Trade Center, really this soon.

Donald Trump took things to a shocking new low tweeting out a graphic video of the twin towers burning interspersed with that single snippet of the congresswoman's speech, and we're not gonna show you that video because it really is so inflammatory it falls into a category. Where most news organisations wouldn't even play it on TV. And yet it was released to the preferred public information tool of the president of the United States making it akin to an official public statement, and many are calling Trump's tweet video and incite. -ment to violence against the congresswoman, particularly since it comes just one week after a self declared Trump supporter was charged with threatening to kill Representative, Omar.

And would hope we would not be doing that also told Trump's yesterday that he's not going to be making any attempts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, but vote Republican and now time for bleep the pope says of recurring segment on the show where we look at bleep.

"It's not an accident that statement is John dropping, but I mean, Mehdi Hassan who's is fantastic writer for the intercept wrote a great piece today about how Republicans have main line, Islam phobia and Trump gets the most attention rightly so because of the Muslim ban. But it's it's it's crews Ted Cruz Marco Rubio talking about surveilling mosques, it's Huckabee. I mean, this is part of the way they reach their base. Anyone who has is scared about a primary Lindsey Graham all these other folks willing to say anything about Muslims, but if Muslim. Kills people is a terrorist attack. They call in every single Muslim to condemn them. So it's just we are we are locked into this vicious cycle of stupidity. And I don't know how to pick the lock here. And so what more thing that related to tummy so earlier in the program? So a lot of times to the right wing justify targeting Muslims by saying, well, look, you guys are are just being disingenuous. They're the ones doing all the violence. And so we got a call it by its name. It's not that. I don't like them because they're particularly in this city. It's that their religion is ever deem -able and their ideologists irredeemable, and it inexorably leads the virus, if they were to know any of those words, okay. So by talking about excrement. And but now we have right wing terrorist attacks over and over and over massacre after massacre after massacre and now a New Zealand, so we could do the same thing and say the right wings. I guess they're all terrorists. But that's what you guys say. You say we've got to watch out for all the Muslims. We got a ban all the Muslims. We got a survey all of their must now if we turn around and said, we have to ban all the right wing. We have to survey older churches, and we have to make sure that we are. Hey, listen. We're just doing something reasonable for safety. We've got at least screen them. We got to screen them at the airports. I mean, it'd be crazy. Not to screen them at the airports. Right. It's not like it's nice left wing socialist Norwegians that are doing the violence. It's clearly the crazed right wing in this country and across the world. So we got a screen them that we don't say that because we're logical human beings. And as opposed to you guys the extremists in. Every category. Yes. That is the job of law enforcement to track them. But only the extremists. When thinking there's also considerable political cowardice when it comes to calling out right wing extremists. So when I was at the White House in two thousand nine the department of homeland security put out a report about right wing extremism, including the likelihood that veterans could be radicalized or sought out to radicalize because they had combat experience. And this got picked up in demagogue by the right wing in. We we ended up having to walk back the report, which was a huge mistake in my opinion. Obviously with the benefit of hindsight. But you know, it's like, the the politics of the moment say that you can say whatever you want about Muslims, but you know, talking about right wing radicalization is somehow out of bounds. Hillary Clinton actually gave a pretty good speech on this during the campaign last cycle. But I don't know that had the impact that obviously we need to we need Republicans arguments. Yeah. And I'm I'm really glad you said that because we have often criticised on the show that the Obama administration walking that report back that report was right? And it was actually commissioned underbush. Yes. Okay. Obama Daytona the report Bush ordered that report. And it was absolutely correct..

"So that's Eric prince speaking to Mehdi Hassan on aljazeera, Paul what's going on here. I mean, the company says it had zero foot inching Jiang, and to be honest with you. I'm not sure the Chinese need much help when it comes to suppressing large numbers of people. I mean, the reason why she Jiang is such a big issue for the Chinese. It's a bit like Falun Gong was. So the ten fifteen years ago, this gate of another competing ideology they can deal with people being corrupt. They can deal with people kind of having sporadic moans about the houses being knocked down what they can't do with these competing ideology to the communist party ideology. And so the reason why they've gone to massive interesting Jiang is that they will worried after nine eleven after they saw the kind of rebellious nature of some of the Bessie seeing some of the Muslim community going into Afghanistan. They were worried about them coming back and radicalizing a whole new generation. So this goes back to basically what they saw happen on the. Stole. They are trying to basically smash any possibility of an alternative ideology coming out to Xinjiang. The reality is there is probably no chance of another tentative ideology coming out, and unless you treat people this badly, and the kind of self defeating they are just looking up massive numbers of people, and alienating and probably radicalizing a whole generation of people with wouldn't have been radicalize if they hadn't have been treated in this way. So may well be Terachi that the Chinese really don't need Mr. prince's company to work out. How to kind of press people, let's move now to Australia where this week on Australian court sentenced cardinal, George Pell to six years in prison for child sex-abuse Pella, seventy seven years old. And he's formerly a senior advisor to pope Francis. He was convicted unanimously by jury in December for sexually abusing two thirteen year old choirboys back in the ninety s cardinal Pell is the highest ranking. Catholic official ever convicted of child sex-abuse, Emily Tamken. How is the world viewing this turning point in the Catholic church sex abuse scandal? I think the optics of it are quite powerful right one. Just because of the facts by themselves in two because it comes on the heels of this major Vatican summit about abuse in the Catholic church. I think whether it's a one offer a turning point. It's still very much to be seen. I back at foreign policy a colleague, I wrote about sexual harassment at the State Department, and I spoke to a lawyer for that who said until people face consequences for their actions until they're not just moved around. And they're not promoted, and it's not kind of note that's covered up in their file this is going to keep happening. So perhaps the fact that somebody faced consequences and that powerful institutions didn't just continue to protect one another. Maybe, you know, this is the beginning of a pattern of consequences for actions than it will be a turning point or we what about victims of abuse from the Catholic church. Do we get the sense that they are? Pleased with the sentences at enough is it not enough. What if he said, I think there's always going to be desire for more? And and I think people are happy to see someone brought to Justice for the sexual abuse. Specially someone as high ranking cardinal Pell. But I think there's always a desire for more on one thing my colleague at the Atlantic Rachel denial who's covered. The Vatican for longtime pointed out is one thing. This makes clear that the wheels of Justice of civil Justice are moving a lot faster than the wheels of Vatican Justice. Right. So the, you know, the the Vatican do its own investigation into this their own trial. But that's lagging behind with civil Justice is doing and you're seeing this also in Pennsylvania, for example, there's really recently. A grand jury indictment in which they expose a thousand kids who had been sexually abused by members of the church. So we're seeing something where I think the Vatican is still moving too slowly for a lot of victims of sexual abuse. We mentioned earlier that there is a walkout for climate change taking place, and that's what we'd like to get to Dow because as we speak..

She's apologize and we can move on. How about Mehdi Hassan host of Al Jazeera cut three go? A lot of the good faith criticism is based on kind of misreporting of what she said and done.

Kensington had this to say to border state governors after laying to the president. Would he saw during a recent visit to the border? I'd like to see more governors just.

"And then congratulate. Mehdi Hassan for saying the same thing he's openness, so we're seeing some very different standards some different evaluations of what is going on in society because we are failing to have a universalism. And I think that this kind of thing not this on its own is pushing the search tools, the right if there is a feeling that the left is not going to speak honestly about certain things such as gender and sexuality issues if they're not going to speak consistently not going to speak honestly about them. Then I think this is pushing a surge to the right and suppose to different arguments. Right. I mean, one is about the ways in which some policies inspired by this might be inherently bad, and the second is some of the most sort of tactical piece about how it might fuel a move to a ride the second one either find somewhat plausible, but also very difficult to assess them perfectly it's difficult to make. Of whether or not that's actually happening. And I think this would be a great avenue for political scientists to pursue. It's certainly true that certain framing of how people see the world can have a huge political impact. And how they act, and that's something pro scientists have explored one of the areas in which it's true is that if you emphasize to people the fact of impending demographic minority and impending majority minority society people actually become more resentful towards racial minority groups and so on so that's one of a ways in which people's beliefs about the world can actually influence them. But we haven't had good evidence on wherever you prime them to think in sort of politics terms, or whether you if you expose them to politics arguments that somehow makes more attracted to variety, it's something that in principle should not easy to study. Some amount of skepticism about all those kinds of psychology studies. But at least it should be possible. To study it at the same kind of level of rigor which lots of other studies, which we take. Seriously are conducted. And that would certainly be a good cause of action now on the other piece. I feel like perhaps more to say, right? I mean, I think for example, about some of the ways which don't require by the way, some of those sort of deep identity politics sumptious in which conversation about equal pay off goes wrong. The United States the way we talk about the evidence is women are being paid depending on the country. Seventy percent eighty percent of what men are paid. And the idea that this implies that full the same positions in the same companies women are paid less vets. How it's usually read and interpreted, and that's the case, then it points to a set of remedies which include things like fighting against outright discrimination, making it easier to sue a boss who gives a woman a different paycheck when a manager for doing the same job perhaps having forms of anti-bias training and so on so. But when you look into the data, and I'm not disagreeing here with the main studies into field that is what the main studies in the field show is actually that women end up for kinds of reasons at a slightly lower positions of the same profession would slightly less high-wage firms and a lot of that is about the structure of career progression of the United States. So you know, you can go to harbor to yellow and be a very high powered lawyer. But if there is a particular track was becoming a partner, and you have a child during that time, and as the case in most cases for women goes and takes on the lion. Share of responsibility, Robin man, sort of drop out of the partner track. Then in the long run, you gonna make less money than a man, and that is an unjust. I didn't think this expansion of what's going on somehow should make us less concerned about the fact that women earn eighty cents on the dollar. But it means that the sort of set of. Remedies that first story applied it's going to be an effective because the problem, isn't that boss is paying female partner less than a male partner. It's we've set up the workplace and can't giving responsibilities. And so on our society in such a way that it's harder for women to become partner and vets much subtler set of obstacles for which we probably need different set of policy responses..

"I mean, that's just commentary. Doesn't mean anything Mehdi Hassan or the intercept said regarding Trump on climate changes as on everything else, the key to covering Trump as Daniel Dale and others argued is not to ask him what he believes. There we go what he believes who cares. And then report it breaking news asked him ask him pointed factual questions band evidence show him up as the fraud. He is not do you agree with your administration's climate report? But what about what about it? Do you disagree with which specific claim Trump hasn't read the report he doesn't understand the science do White House correspondents, don't let him get away with this pretense plea? I gotta tell you many Hassen. I don't know him. I've never met him. But I've been reading his stuff recently the intercept. This guy's really good. I'm gonna have to show one of Of these the. days. Yeah, he's been on MSNBC. And I think he goes usually on Chris Hayes show. I don't recall. He's he is really good without even realizing, you know, his name. I was going. I really liked this guy. Oh, it's many Hassen. You know, so. Melanie's Onoda from the hill said I on Presley's say Yana press, the endorsed a trio of women for leadership jobs Pelosi for speaker Barbara lever caucus chair and Katherine Clark for vice chair. Presley says Pelosi promised to bring a background check Bill to the floor early. And I'm sorry early on and appointed her to the gun violence prevention task for that was something that Nancy Pelosi negotiated with her over for her vote speaker, and she's been doing this a lot. I gotta say so so basically despite some of the, you know, blue dogs new damn still making noises Pelosi is going to be speaker again. And and you know, it's going to be Steny Hoyer and Jim Clyburn in the in the second to positions, but there were creating this new role of of a caucus chair. I guess and Barbara Lee is running for it as came Jeffries setting it up to be like this Congressional Black caucus, you know, battle. Barbara lee. I'm sorry. Just isn't a class by herself star yacking Jeffries. Go back and try again, another time. I love Barbara. How do I she's awesome? I'd like to run for speaker. But you know, she knows I sort of resigned myself to the fact that it's got to be Pelosi. Although I wish you know, they'd replaced anyway, or Jim Clyburn. I just I think it's counter productive to have the three of them in in the three leadership positions again. I just think it's yeah. I totally get that Ron brownstein from the Atlantic said the holy grail for Dem's on the rust belt for twenty twenty is to de-legitimize Trump as a champion of the white working class by painting him as a servant of corporate interest. He gives them plenty of ammunition and Senator Sherrod Brown here. And I'm going gonna give you a tweet offers a preview of how he might carry that case and then shared Brown tweets. G M gained record tax breaks from the GOP's tax scam. And chose not to invest that money in American workers figures, go figure. Yeah. Yeah. As a result of that corporate greed, thousands of workers will soon be out of a job disgraceful. So good for him. Yep. Good for him for for putting it, you know, it's it's in the framing people, you know, do it. Right. And by the way, I just a little side as you. I was complaining today on Twitter..

"It was good for a while and then it got really awful. Right? I was like, yeah, I like this threat and then I got to the end, then I went, oh crap, my God. So the New York Times broke the Nikki Haley story. And this just to repeat what you and I've been saying Mehdi Hassan of from the intercept said she is not a moderate shake. He said that like ten times. So let's remember that she's not a moderate just because she's done a couple of things that we may agree with, like calling Trump out for something. Yeah, it's like Susan Collins, just because you know, maybe she's cast a vote or two that did the right thing does not make her moderate does not make her one of the good guys ever. She's never been a good guy. She's always been a conservative ass. Yup. I used to write about her all the time when I was at the political. Carnival all the time and cliff Schecter used to trade back and forth. We'd do stories back and forth in and compare notes than I'd start writing up what he said and what I found. And she was always like this people have been fooled for some reason because then she'll she'll do the right thing on one vote and all of a sudden people think, oh, that means she's one of the good guys know right occasionally she has a Pang of conscience. I guess it's like John McCain. He's not a map, right? He was. He was a conservative who occasionally would do the right thing. That's it. Drove me crazy. The route pundit pundit who we love, said, stop ascribing anything noble to Nikki Haley resignation. You will inevitably be disappointed. She was a shitty UN ambassador and Trump LaPointe Sean Hannity or someone totally nuts to the position. Oh, help us all. God, Brian Schatz again, Senator this Konya meeting with police is is a significant moment in culture and politics. Never mind, voter, registration deadlines. Tomorrow, there you go.

"I mean, Ron disaster, he is a nightmare. He had campaign ads that had his infant son building the wall, and absolutely Andrew gillum is running on a platform of unity of Florida where we all belong and all of our families can thrive. And I think that's why we're going to he's really claim victory in November. Jason. One thing I thought was interesting there. The Democratic Party right is trying to represent the one truly multiracial collision American life. It's hard to do that. It's hard to together affected multiracial coalitions. And one of the things is if you have candidates who are non white, who represent the diversity of the collision, they don't have to perform woke nece way that a white candidate who is trying to helm that that coalition does. So Andrew gillum can sort of say, you know, that's no, I'm not going to go there with him and has the kind of like authority to do that in a way that white candidate would not. Yeah, Chris, I completely agree. I mean, basically, Cimpian Nixon's message, Bernie Sanders message. A lot of minority voters didn't believe it, but believe it out of a Brown persons mountain. And that's, that's a big thing here, but I also think this and this is something about that I think is important. He's also shown that like he's gonna fight against he. He clearly told Trump, hey, next time at me when Donald Trump tweeted them this warning, and that's the kind of thing that voters want to see. They wanna see a progressive. Candidate who's gonna fight and someone who's willing to speak to everybody who's actually in the country and that can happen with a white candidate. But I think the Democratic Party is finally embraced the idea that that can come out of the mouth of a gay person, a black person, a Hispanic person as long as they've got a good campaign behind. Yeah, I mean, the biggest thing is don't be scared Ayu whatever you're doing. Honestly, politics just that's the lesson. Honestly, I think it's one of the lessons, the Trump era like just don't do. What are you gonna do see the full in Jason Johnson, Andrea Cristina. Makoto. Thank you very much. I want to mention there is a new episode of our podcast out with the great Mehdi Hassan.
