This is Enterprise AI. It's 6 35 on KCRW. This'd is morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm no. Well, king. Good morning. Police officers were watching the verdict in Derrick Show van's murder trial. Very closely. NPR law enforcement correspondent Martin Cost has been talking to some of them. Good morning, Martin. Morning. Well, all right, so the verdict comes down. Guilty on three counts. And what did police officers tell you? Well, the cops that I've been talking to say they're relieved. You know the ones I've talked to at least say they did not like shoving and they did not like the damage that he had done to their profession. Leon Taylor's of former Baltimore cop also the African American, and he told me that the reaction among his friends and colleagues has been positive, in part because cops there's been comfortable with this image of arrogance that show of it has come to project on their on their profession. The general consensus has been that we have relieved because you know, for every cop has done it The right way. You have this, you know, tainting everything that you've done. You have people looking at you. You know what suspicion? How universal. Do you think that sentiment is among police? Well, they're not. You know, all of one mind. I have yet to talk to a single police officer who's told me that he thinks Jovan was not guilty. I mean, I think there's pretty uniform. I thought about that. But you're right that there are some cops right now have gone quiet. You know is Taylor puts it as others are celebrating somewhere quiet, And they're worried about the atmosphere that surrounded this trial. I mean, the big National Union in this country. The Fraternal Order of Police did call this trial fair yesterday in a statement. But some officers still are kind of uneasy about the whole sort of the specter of potential undressed or even violence kind of hung over the whole thing, and that Minneapolis might burn again if there wasn't the right verdict, so to speak. They think that Children was guilty, but they wonder. You know whether this fear fear of unrest maybe sort of bad omen for future incidents where police officers are facing some kind of scrutiny or accused of misconduct that somehow in the future the size of the potential crowd outside the police department may What determines whether or not you get fired or disciplined or even prosecuted. Oh, that is interesting. Okay, so they are looking as you would imagine it knock on effects Are you hearing regarding knock on effects? Are you hearing from police officers who hope that this verdict will lead to some kind of larger structural change in what they do? I mean, a lot of the reform minded people in policing say that's already kind of happening. They say the protests last summer after Floyd's murder definitely pushed things along, especially in the states. It's state capitals. We've seen a number of states things like new bands on chokeholds or new rules requiring independent policing agencies to to investigate to the police shootings. Sue Rahr is the former head of the police academy here in Washington state. She was also President Obama's police reforms Police Reforms task force, and she pointed to legislation in Washington requiring police officers to intercede when one of their colleagues is using an excessive force. And she says that wouldn't have happened without Floyd's death. Calling attention to the whole situation, making legislation possible. The power of this case is that it caused nearly universal outrage and immobilize the country. The same way. The news reporting from Selma got people's attention in the early sixties. So in that way, I think the power of the case is less about the particulars of the incident. But but the momentum that it created let me ask you about the mo mentum and about the big picture here. President Biden last night again asked the Senate to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. Would that federal bill mean anything for police practices, given that they work on a state and local level? Well, the you know, policing is local in this country, and the federal government can certainly do a lot of things like provide incentives. Grants, um, collect better data nationally. But ultimately, if you want to require police departments do something differently, have to go to the state level and that's what we're seeing. I think On a more effective basis. That anything we might see at the federal level. Okay. NPR's Martin cost you Thank you, Martin. You're welcome. Going to turn to India.

Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar
"Me to talk about barbara star. Is rachel sign a staff writer for the new yorker. Hey rachel her so thanks for joining me for this one. I really was excited to talk about this one with you because you wrote something about it a little view in appreciation of it for the new yorker that i really love and i felt really tapped into some of the things that are special about this movie. I'm going to read a tiny bit of it back to you. Maybe that can inspire conversation so this comes early in what you're writing about it when you talk about the transition from what i would think of as the setup the first twenty minutes or so where we beat barbara starr in their hometown of soft rot nebraska and how it then it then transitions to town of title of vista del. Mar in florida. And so you're right. There solid jokes from the get-go but it's not clear right away. What the movie is up to our. Wigan molo denizens of los angeles where they first met as part of the l. Sketch comedy troupe. The groundlings taking the piss out of flyover over forties then skipping ahead of bit is talking about the the that transition you say but as barbara starr unfolds. It's quirky heroines fuel. Less and less like stand ins for certain kind of tj maxx shopper. Instead the film goes for something far more specific and silly loving often lovely. Where so many comedies are either retreads old ideas or feel designed by committee to hit newsy talking points. Barbara starr is the rare film. That feels sue generous in both conceit an execution barbara starr or such finely drawn characters that they could be nobody else but themselves so that really spoke to me and exactly what i love about this movie and this was going to frame it to you. Is that this movie gets compared a lot to bridesmaids which of course was written by the the co writers and co stars of this movie and malone christian wig and another movie that sprung to mind was spy which is this wild sort of a spoof of james bond films. That's also a female friendship bonding movie with incredible performances by melissa mccarthy and rose byrne i love both bridesmaids an spy but i found this movie far more original than either one and in a way more exciting i mean i can see why bridesmaids changed comedy history. It's an important movie. it's still a very funny movie. But this sui generis quality that you point to i think is is so much more vibrant in this movie which really could only have come out of the imaginations of these two women who are friends in real

They're talking about the mormon church and they're talking about converting 'cause she was a mormon gen sean that she was like you know what like the mormon church has been very terrible. The black people in the past. Like i'm going to convert islam. And so like she has this interesting relationship to salt lake city right so long. You understand why all these women were cast this. This happens this week. She gets arrested for multiple crimes. So allegations are wire fraud conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering. Basically what she was doing was working in this. Multi leveled multi layered scheme. They call it the business opportunity scheme and the thing which involves collecting and creating and selling lead less lanner way. Yeah well it's when you start a company and you want to kind of hit the ground running with your company. You can buy a lead list. And i was googling this on a lot of people have problems with lead list because they can reliable. They're really rely a list of people's names and numbers essentially right contact information and the information about Names and numbers. Email address all their demographics. And then you have this sort of like set group of people who probably likely to respond to whatever your company is right. Suckers is what you're saying suckers suckers and so she's developing these lists and also selling these less so she's making money on the selling of these lists which the best of my knowledge are really expensive. Like if you're starting a company and you want to buy lead list depending on the quality of the list you could be paying a ton of money right and it could be risky. And apparently there could be legal complications with even buying lists. I was reading about this. It was like beware of buying lead lists and so she was not only allegedly selling these late lists and creating these lead lists. She was working with the people who bought them so that they be using those lead lists to target. These older people susceptible people with business schemes. That were non existent and the old people would pay them a ton of money. And then jenn shaw would allegedly get a cut of that. I think i'm doing a pretty good job explaining what this is. But that's the wire fraud which is as our friend amina says that's is crime because that's always what they get rich people on that's the easiest crime to get people on because it involves receipts it's like is there. Documentation of z happening. Yes it's wire fraud.

"We're gonna be in a very different situation. We're going to be as of january twentieth. Hundred twenty one is in a situation where we no longer are talking about. Indicting the president but rather a former president. Somebody who is a civilian and the question is going to be. Does the rule of law apply to that person. And it's very hard to see an argument If it is shown for instance set in the manhattan district attorney's office that the president has committed tens of millions of dollars of tax fraud or bank fraud or both and any other person would normally be prosecuted than it really shouldn't be the case that just because he becomes president that he shouldn't have the day in court where jury decides whether or not he committed those crimes prior to becoming president and with respect to conduct in office. You have to remember in the muller report. There is substantial evidence that the president obstructed justice in other words obstructed the special counsel investigation and to me. That's even more important to vindicate. If you are not going to hold the president accountable for a special counsel investigation obstruction then. There's no reason to actually have a special counsel in the future now. There's the precedent that you're setting in the future is. Don't bother appointing a special counsel because there isn't going to be adding accountability to a president. Who obstructs that investigation animal over your right shoulder. That is my english cocker spaniel. making himself very comfortable very cute. Cute i want you to evaluate this statement. From the new york times magazine it says the stakes of an indictment could be very high putting him on trial for his conduct as president would be tantamount to putting on trial. More than seventy two million americans who voted for his reelection. How do you evaluate that. I think that's looking at it the wrong way. Remember a jury is going to have to make the decision and is going to have to find proof beyond a reasonable doubt in the same way any other defendant is entitled to all of the due process rights that we have in this country and donald trump if he were to be indicted whether federally or By the manhattan district attorney's office would enjoy all of those same rights in the same way for instance that paul manafort Went to trial and a jury made up of citizens from a cross. Section of the community made a decision regardless of politics whether someone's a democrat or republican Just on the facts and the law and donald trump would face the same kind of jury making that determination and her good to see was always my. I think we should make it a law. That people with animals should have them in their shots. Because it really just makes it more enjoyable Do is andrew. Weisman is a former senior member of the special counsel robert muller's team. We will be right back all right. That does it for us tonight. Rachel's likely back here tomorrow but as you heard from her own mouth it will be soon. I'm going to see.

"A town were. Disagreement is par for the course. Today there was one thing that almost all of washington could agree on namely that the government's top election security cyber cyber security official. Chris crabs did a great job protecting our democracy and did not deserve to be fired. Chris crabs was dismissed last night via presidential tweet after he repeatedly pushed back on trump's claims of election fraud and after his agency refused white house. Requests to edit or remove informational accurate content which was pushing back against trump's false election claims most notably krebs cybersecurity and infrastructure. Security agency cisa. It's a unit within the department of homeland security last week called the november third election quote the most secure in american history adding that there is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes changed votes or was in any way compromised and quote democrats today reacted to krebs firing with predictable outrage but notably they were joined by many republicans including some of the president's most ardent defenders in congress to presents variety to the confusion entails. I'm sure i'm not the only one that we'd like. Return to more of a lot on what's normally of course. Well chris krebs is rightfully earning plaudits in an enhanced reputation for a job. Well done and for standing up to this president. This lack of normalcy is likely to continue for the remaining nine weeks left to go in this administration. We all need a way to get through it. So i'm happy to give you one. I'm happy say the joining us now to discuss this story and others is someone who obviously needs no introduction on this show or anywhere else the inestimable. Rachel meadow rachel. It is so great to see you here. I'm going to ask you the first question on behalf of all of your viewers how are you. I am great valley and let me just start by saying how thankful i am to you for doing for stepping in for me on zero notice and doing this at length. You've just been fantastic and my staff loves working with you and you just. I've been watching every night and you guys are doing an amazing job and so i am grateful to you for making it possible for me to be important which is <hes>. Which has been a trip. But i'm i'm fine. I have continued to test negative through this whole thing. Which means that. I'm getting close to the end of my quarantine period. I will hopefully think potentially be back hosting either tomorrow night or the night after in which case i will have more to say about where i been in what i've been doing and what it's been like. I definitely have some stuff to say about that. And i want to let people know what's been going on but bottom line is i'm grateful to you and i'm finding i will be back in something that looks like your chair pretty said well you come in the time that is needed for you to come and as i remind our viewers all the time <hes>. This continues to be your staff who put the show together and it has your dna and it's so we're we're glad for that. I want to ask you about this topic. We were just talking about chris. Crabs a man who was responsible for trying to keep at least outside interference and cyber interference out of our election. He told people last week he thought he was going to get fired and then last night in typical fashion. He got fired by tweet for doing his job. The president directly contradicted him saying he was wrong about what he said. This election was not safe. Votes were changed votes that were cast for trump became biden votes and chris. Krebs is now no longer there. What do you make of this. I a couple of things i mean. In terms of krebs himself. I feel like it's worth reflecting. On the fact that i don't know that there is anybody else who has served particularly at a high level in the trump administration who has come out of it not just with an enhanced reputation for having done a job very well and done right by the country and taking something. That was very very difficult. That other people have had a really hard time with and sort of nailing it doing it well but also leaving not just with his badge of honor of being fired by the president for having done his job well leaving without having compromised himself without having bit his tongue without having kowtowed to the president or compromised himself in any way that was trying to either stave off himself being fired or trying not to rock the boat or trying to go along to get along. Which so many good people have fallen prey to because that's the way the president manipulates people gets what he wants and so i think chris crabs is being lauded justifiably by people on all sides of the ideological spectrum and all levels of government for having done a really good job but he also really in some ways stands alone in terms of having done well and done right and not having bent himself to the vagaries of this president. I think that's really important. I will also say the alley. That i think there's an institutional thing to watch out for. Because part of the reason we started talking about crabs potentially being fired last week was when a divisional chief at cisa got fired. Then krebs himself got fired. His deputy also got fired. What's happened is this agency has been decapitated and that has a couple of risks. One is that this is a dozen just work on election security. They are responsible for example for protecting vaccine. Researchers from what appears to be a robust international malign effort to interfere with and steal vaccine data by actors like potentially north korea iran russia <hes>. That's really important. We reported in recent weeks on hospitals being hit with ransomware attacks russian-speaking gangs from the former soviet union hitting us hospitals in the middle of this pandemic with ransomware attacks and locking their computer systems. That's also with instances remain. We need an agency. That's good at that stuff but also in terms of the election. i mean the there are still being counted. There are recounts happening. there are certification. Tallies that are coming up and people including senators on the intelligence committee have warned that this is one of the times when we are quite vulnerable to disinformation and potentially foreign interference. Somebody might target the understanding of the american people to try to confuse us an upset us and muddied the result of the election now as it is being finalized and finally tabulated and so two houses a plan so well not just to have him ousted but to have all the whole upper echelons of the agency taken out for these reasons at this time is very dangerous for lots of different reasons. And i'm i'm very very uncomfortable with not just what this means for but what the implications are for our national security one of the reasons i would like you back is because rather than doing it myself. I'd like to hear your narration of this legal clown car. That is driving around the united states stopping michigan last night with the board of canvassers in wayne. County not agreeing to certify detroit's election results than fifteen million three hours later after getting pressure decided to do so. Rudy giuliani walking into a court. Case after twenty eight years <hes>. Walk into a courtroom in philadelphia not really understanding the law very well. Republicans putting pressure on the secretary of state of georgia. It is a bit of a clown car but they are doing stuff to stop this election from being certified and to stop the administration from taking the reins and getting their transition moving. Yeah that's right. And i think you had really interesting conversation. Stacey abrams about this earlier in the hour alley. And i. I think that one thing. That's that's interesting that we can see at work is what you were talking about with her about the secretary of state and georgia the republican secretary of state who's absolutely been involved in contentious voting rights disputes with voting rights advocates like abrahams with democrats in georgia but his emerging here as a sort of normal republican and not a trump republican in the sense that he's not exactly a champion of voting rights in georgia georgia's had all these troubles but he's also not willing to go along with the insanity of the trump republican claims that the georgia election should be thrown out because of some magic dust that they've imagined they can cast over those election results so i do think that this is accelerating in some small ways with republican elections officials whether it's local commissioners in pennsylvania or the secretary of state in georgia or other people who are just sort of you know regular elected officials who are responsible for election integrity finding themselves affronted by the president and his legal team are trying to do in a way that i think maybe is giving us a little bit of a peak had a post trump republican party or at least where the schism might be between trump and and republicanism as we move forward.

"That you can figure out everywhere this place. This person has been and with whom they've been in contact and then what try and find Yeah so the whole thing is too I would get a list of everybody that you've been around and then i would contact them individually. Say you have been exposed to covid. Nineteen you need to isolate for fourteen days. And the here's they would be inputted into the system and get monitored themselves as well. Talk to me about how this goes. Obviously each one of these calls is different. You don't have to divulge anything that you're not allowed to divulge but generally speaking what happens when you call someone. How do they respond to you. Yeah so now. It's usually kind of like it was said an article. People are almost very resigned about it. It's like of course it was. I thought so so. It's usually just starts with high as this so-and-so so and have you been made aware of your test results send than you get. Their day of birth confirmed who they are And just start talking to them. I like to form a relationship with people more so maybe than others. But it's a scary time especially if it's your whole family or it's an older person It's scary so it's offering all of that Getting their information seeing if they worked letting them know this was when you are factious. This is who need to notify We give need to isolate letter so that can provide that to their employers. And then i usually just leave my personal contact information for them to reach out if they ever need anything and you are still running into some people who don't take the seriously. Yeah yes sadly we are so there are still a good amount. I would say it's less now but originally yesterday was of this political this is a hoax or I mean It's not happening in north dakota. It's not needed here. That is not true so thankfully now it's kind of toned down and people are more serious about it but we're still seeing huge numbers of cases and hospitalizations. And yeah it's going downhill kelly. You have one of the most important jobs in america. And i will say that six months ago or eight months ago. I didn't even know such a job existed. I didn't know what this was all about. We heard these terms. We we were told contact. Tracing is going to be the most important thing. It's an honor to speak to you. Thank you history will smile up on you in the thousands of others across america. Who are doing this important work. Kaley land gang.

"And so. We've got to do that work. But we've also got to do the work of explaining that david perdue and kelly leffler have done nothing to serve. The people of of georgia have only worked to profit themselves. And that jon. Ossoff and raphael warnock are men of courage men of character and men who are ready to get to work on behalf of all georgians. That means that we've got to go bang down. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I was just saying we've gotta go back to the people who voted in november and remind them that they've got one more thing they have to do. We've got one more thing to put on their christmas list. We need them to cast their votes bank. Those votes early so that between thanksgiving and christmas. We've already won this election and we can watch new year's come in knowing that a new life is ahead for all of us the the biggest gains. We're watching this very closely. Obviously on election night and the days after but the biggest gains joe biden made compared to what hillary clinton did in two thousand sixteen was in that northwest Top left part of the state the atlanta suburbs he netted nearly two hundred thousand more votes than hillary clinton did their atlanta's of course fulton county gwinnett. Dekalb county around atlanta and another six or eight counties are really full of voters and that looks like that and other city other urban areas other metro areas. Look like where there are gains to be had for the senate race. Do you agree with that. Absolutely we can increase our gains there but we also can't ignore rural georgia where we have pockets of democrats largely african american rural voters. Who too often get left out of the processing. Get left out of the efforts of candidates but john raphael or traveling around the state. And we're going to be doing the work necessary to not only increase our numbers in metro atlanta and in the metro areas but to also include engage those voters who are being effective most acutely by covid nineteen by the failure of david purdue and kelly leffler to provide any support and any resources if we work the entire state. We have the ability to put together the math to win this election. One of the interesting things. We understand the rural urban spread but when republicans have talked about suburban voters in this context. It is often a synonym for white moderate voters. That's not actually the case in a lot of georgia. It's absolutely inaccurate. We know that in this election cycle asian american voters increased participation by ninety one percent from two thousand sixteen that latino participation increased by seventy two percents that black participation increased by twenty percent. Fifty seven percent of atlanta's popular of georgia's population is in the metro atlanta region. Which means those are all populations that are represented in the suburbs and the exurbs. And as i said earlier we have a very large rural. Population is black. And latino those are all people who are eligible to vote and so folks go to senate dot com or fair fight dot com. They can support the work. We're doing to ensure that those voices get heard at the ballot box in this election. The daily beast is talking saying that allies close to you are saying that you plan to run for governor again in twenty twenty two. Is that right now. I've made no decisions about my future. Other than my future includes making certain that jon ossoff and raphael warnock become the next two senators from the great state of georgia. You've been on opposite sides in the past of lawsuits with georgia's republican secretary straight brad. Reference burger over voting rights issues. Interesting situations found himself in the last few days. Pushing back against pressure from the trump campaign from lindsey graham from other republicans to assist in an effort to undermine the results in georgia. Propublica is reporting that the trump campaign has been pressuring him since before the election. So i'm i'm really curious about your take on this as someone who has been up against reference burger. What do you make of how this is playing out. I think that there were market. Improvements made between june's election in november. But there's still work to do where brad ratzenberger does a good job. I celebrate it including the fact that he's reopened the portal. That will allow voters to get their absentee ballots. Without filling out a piece of paper. They can do it online. If they want more information they can go to peach boat dot com but we also know that voter suppression while we have mitigated dramatically in georgia. It still exists and we're going to be on the lookout. I want bread. Rassam burger to be able to focus on his job and job of running free and fair elections and when he is doing that job i will celebrate it when he is not doing that job. We will challenge him because every day we should be spending our time thinking about. How do we make certain that georgia citizens can be heard and are you feeling like right. Now he's doing his job as he's resisting pressure from other republicans and being fairly public about it absolutely look. We have the right as americans to litigate to challenge and to call into question but we do not have the right to our own facts and we do not have the right to manufacturer evidence. We know that this was a free. And fair election. In georgia and that brad ratzenberger random the election based on consent decrees and changes that we were able to compel and those changes have made it easier for voters to cast their ballots. Donald trump is entitled to. His opinion is entitled to be happy about the outcome. But as i did in thousand eighteen. I acknowledged the legal sufficiency of the election. I just simply challenged the system. That allowed voters to be disenfranchised. It is time now for donald trump to acknowledge that the legal sufficiency of the system says that he is no longer the president. And unlike what happened to me where we had enough evidence to go to federal court and to see changes made. He has to admit that there is no evidence of widespread fraud. He can continue to fight. But he's going to lose abrams. You are one of the most watched and important people in georgia politics right now. Which makes you one of the most watched an important people in american politics right now. Thank you for joining us this evening. Thank you for having me. And a reminder that the rachel maddow we'll be joining us a little later in the show but first we're going to speak to someone on the ground in what has become one of the epicenters of the latest covert outbreak with the pandemic wreaking havoc across the country. It's worth noting that the united states senate has gone home for thanksgiving early tonight. With no sign of any form of covid relief package. They will not be back until the week. Of november thirtieth. But don't worry. They spent their last day before the break. Doing the very important work of let me check my notes here..

"Feel like the one thing that has broken through a little bit at least this year about that empathy deficit that you're talking about is the reporting that started in the Atlantic. This week that's been backed up by a bunch of other news organizations that he said terrible things about veterans. And particularly about people who've been wounded or killed in action for this country that they're stupid and they're suckers and they're losers. Can you corroborate any of that has he talked about potential A-. Avoiding Service in Vietnam or anything else about veterans or his potential for serving in ways that make sense to you. Rachel corroborated I said it eighteen months ago before the House Oversight Committee everything that you're seeing now is sort of a preview to this really horror film that we have going on now trump presidency and to those that don't believe this the. To it. Twenty twenty horror is going to be even worse than the twenty, sixty one, I'd said it he literally had his father go to podiatrist claim that he had bone spurs in his feet. He doesn't even remember which bone spur which foot you had the bone spirit. That's impossible. I had surgery I had both earned my left shoulder. But what did you get one hundred years old still remember with scars I. Still Remember that I added in my left shoulder you forget something like that. It's nonsensical plus I was asked by him and I talked about it in order to tamp down all of the media, all of the friends that I have in need. To tamp down one why deferment because he did not want to detract from his claims that he is pro veteran and he is the. Veterans. Hope for America and for them, and that's why they should vote. Mary trump said. It was of Family Lore that Don Jr. would be disowned if he signed up for the military that there was worry that he was going to sign up for the military, maybe he'd voice that he was going to and president trump told him that he'd be cut out of his inheritance if he did. So you ever hear anything about that. I haven't heard on that one, but I can tell you I talked about it quite frequently throughout the book. The relationship between father and son is a very very. Cutting relationship had some was at times it was hard to even be in the room. Trump used to say that he has the worst judgment of anyone that he's ever met and I actually interceded on many pages on behalf of done both in his personal life, as well as business life to protect him from his father's wrath you also say that you sometimes spelt. Treated like one of the trump children and the way that he was belittling you in the way that he would try to cut your legs out from under he'll essentially for his own amusement. For his amusement and that's why I was able to accept it. I figured you know it's Capable of doing his children the next not just on June that was Ivanka and Eric. Tiffany. He did the same to them. So I figured well at least I'm good company. Michael Cohen it's a remarkable book. It's called disloyal. Memoir.

Why military outfit Rachel Yeah that's strange for needs again. That's just another one of me. Salt Lake side hoppy in the term. I'd always liked and thought that certain women in military uniforms they just look so slats and very classy to just thought himself rather than do just like the normal female close maybe just took something to a difference, and at seen that on the web, the Russian female military when they're in the parade dress, they look so very smart is like an a proper suit with a pencil skirt. They actually allow them to wear high heels as well. When on parade? FUNNILY, enough out I just saw thanks such a fantastic look. At could quite easily rip the kit that with a suit jacket and a pencil skirt, and just dawn with proper Russian military badges a hat. And basically that that's the date. Jerry. Looks to Joe. Thank you very much. Patrick was.

"Your life I'm Emma Gos- well. Time now to hear from Bright Show there in the fifties live near York and work as a forklift driver Rachel and has being partially gender fluid or across stresser. They've only recently come out low and still haven't told the best friend of forty five years. I've never really thought about it a great deal up until me. Discovering lacks last year. Who I am at I've never actually come across the term. Non Binary Agenda Fluid, and of never really thought about it that much. I don't if this terminology is maybe passionately gender fluid. Thing we were inventing our own terms, but these days. Aren't we Rachel so you identify as you wish. It's like everything in I've. Has To be put into a box and label these days, but I guess Paschall gender fluid would maybe perhaps describe our feel or how I am moment. And how does that manifest itself? And so some days you just as a man and complete, identifies man and other days. You don't yes most of the days to watch. He dresses a mom and it's normally on weekends. It's our will dresses dresses, Rachel, it just goes with the flow some weeks. It cannot go into weeks of just being a mom. And then yet during the the week I'll get. To just as rich the weekends, how long have you been doing it for them of basically being cross dressing from like the stats? Until now for roughly about forty years. So when you were a child or when you're a teenager? Basically when I was I guess roundabout thirteen fourteen years old.

"Well so this comes down to what I think will be a really big enemy for some of you right now. And that's pride we all suffer from pride nobody's immune to it and what? I mean by this is you know I had a good corporate job Or I had whatever your job was and all of a sudden you gotta stock shelves at Walmart or your grocery store and it feels like you've gone so far backwards speaking to you men mostly here because we take such huge identity as a provider but right now. This isn't a you problem. There's no shame in your game as one of my friends says you gotTa do what it takes to provide those four walls. Don't have any shame. Swallow your pride. You do what you have to do and I. I love that you brought up going home. Because that's tough but I think our kids will learn more from watching their parents step up in a big moment of uncertainty and do what needs to be done and they would ever learn in any classroom. They're watching you. Don't be ashamed you own it. You show them what we're doing as a family. We're going to sacrifice we're GONNA get through this and as Dave said I believe six seven months from now. We're all going to be going. Wow what a weird time. That was and those kids are going to see that they're going to remember that. That's legacy type stuff of close my thoughts. Dave and Rachel on one of the best analogies ascending analysis is actually true of nature and how to different animals basically from the same species handle the storms so cows blessed the cows when a storm is coming across. The planes are coming across the pasture. They see the storm coming and they act like most humans do it. Maybe some view some of US act when life throws a storm at us. They start to try to outrun the storm but the storm overtakes them Dave and then because the storm is moving faster than they are. They spend more time in the storm because they're trying to run away from the storm but I don't know if it's their cousin or what but the buffalo these crazy animals. They're out on the planes. They see the storm. They run into the storm and as a result the storms coming to the buffalo and they run into it and as a result they get through it quicker. I think you are facing storm. We are facing store. Your Business is facing the store. Our nation is facing a store. Our world is facing a storm. I think what we're going to share with you tonight will help you take control of what you can control and I know that you can choose to run into the storm. Be like the buffalo run into that storm. And you'RE GONNA get through it quicker. Don't run away from it. There's no reason to be afraid of this. We will overcome this together. And Ramsey solutions is gonna be there for you and with you the entire time so what are takeaways for. You guys aren't tonight is. There's at least three things that you can control. We've talked about controlling the controllables that gives you a sense of power. Since of hope to push fear aside panicked hysteria the side first thing is you can control your attitude. Yes you really can't. You're not a victim. We didn't allow Ramsey kids when they were growing up. Rachel her brother or sister to say he made me mad. Nope you chose to be mad. Now maybe he was a jerk and maybe it was an injustice and maybe most people would be mad when that happened but no one makes you afraid. No one makes you mad. No one makes you happy. It's a decision you do. Control your attitude. And it's a matter of self control self discipline and the people that control their attitudes Do control a lot of things that happen in your life. No one makes you unkind. The Corona viruses made me be mean to all my neighbors on my facebook page in my neighborhood. No you're just being mean. No one made you me and you need to stop it. It'd be kind calm generous. Just choose facts. Are Your friends? No one control your attitude absolutely. Yeah number two is to control your money. I mean that's a big part of what we do here. Rooms solutions help you with your money. And Man no matter what category you're in we kind of walked through the three different situations but no matter where you are You can control that part You know whether it's the incoming in the spending. That's going out and so really really being intentional with that and so things like doing the budget. It's the banner I wave all the time. But it's true controlling that out your investments deciding not to go into debt in these situations. I I'm going to call the student loan people until Monday hardship. Deferral both of US HAVE LOST JOBS. And honestly I happy that there's going to be a government stimulus but truthfully it's not enough to fix your life if a thousand dollars fixtures your life you probably didn't have much of a life and so it's it's a nice thing and I'm glad for the politics and I'm glad for whatever if it makes her feel good up. There really what happens at your house is more important than what happens in the White House and it always has been. It always has been you get to choose how to control the money that is in your sphere and whether you're in a crisis and the medium or whether you're doing well you get to choose generosity you get to choose to not take out your investments. Exactly the wrong time you get to choose to not go into debt because you panicked and freaked out because you've been unemployed for thirty two seconds before you went and ran up a credit card the number of times. I HAVE COACHED PEOPLE ON THEIR FINANCES. And they say oh. I lost my job last year. And so I'm forty five thousand dollars in credit card debt and when I talk them through it a figure out that they lost their job for two months and they were making five thousand dollars a month so that means they need to ten thousand dollars to completely offset their loss of income and yet they went forty five thousand dollars in debt and used the job loss as an emotional rationalization to do stupid stuff and stupid when we've been doing stupid stuff and it goes into stress when stupidest stress tested. It comes up. It shows us being stupid. Some people have been doing some stupid stuff with money and right now it's being revealed. Warren Buffett. Used to say that that you know when the tide goes out you can tell. He was skinny dipping. Its principles your operating your life on were false principles and the only reason you're getting away with it was white hot economy. Now you know that there were false and now you know the idea of being out of debt being on a budget having some savings a really smart idea and I'm not saying I told you I've done dumber than any of you looking. I went completely broke in my twenties and lost everything because I did stupid stuff in a huge tower of it and you see an economy shift knocked the tower down and I thought I was a victim. I was a victim of basing my life on principles. I was the little big with the Straw House and I changed my life. Some of you. This is going to be the opportunity. You Change Your Life. My GRANDPA Ramsey was one of my favorite people on the planet was living. And I'll never forget in the seventies. I was in the backyard with him. We're pulling nails out of boards on deck. We were taken apart and every day we pulled out. We straighten it out and put it in a coffee. Can he kept used nails because he was a young man just freshly married with babies when the Great Depression hit and changed him forever. He was frugal and careful with money. Forever this might be yours someday. Your grandson maybe telling the story about the time that there was a work. Stoppage and people lost their jobs and you permanently for the rest of your life changed the way you handled money and started basing it on God's and grandma's common since instead of going crazy out here in extreme spending like most people do. This is an opportunity to change that so. I'm not shaming you. If you messed up. I'm here to help you messed up. I'm the king of messed up. But this might be your wakeup call. This could be the best thing that ever happened to some of you and the third controllable is this. You control your opportunity. It's right you know the way that you think controls the way that you act and when we've talked about perspective tonight folks you've got to understand that right now as Davis said you have some of you some very urgent needs and so you are going to have to go get an opportunity. You know when we talk about proximity and the book the proximity principle. It's very simple when you're on the right people and in the right places opportunities present themselves you gotta be okay to say. Hey I need help. I need some work. I'll do whatever it takes. I got some beautiful kids at home and I'm willing to do whatever I'll work the midnight. Shift our drive. I'll do whatever your opportunity is right in front of you but you're going to have to go get it and you're going to have to be intentional and again understanding the way that you think is how you change the way that you act if you think. Hey I can do this. I need to do this. I must do this your whole mindsets different and I would also be in a situation where you're putting yourself in places for future opportunity. Remember just because we've got all this craziness and uncertainty going on doesn't mean Dave and Rachel that you can't put yourself not just in the financial but in your job and you put yourself in a position that when this thing slingshots back you're ready for opportunity. John Wooden maybe the greatest coach of all time the legendary. Ucla basketball coach. I am a fan. A beautifully said when opportunity comes it's too late to prepare and those are wise words and I think a challenge to us tonight days right you can control your opportunities but you have to have the mindset that I can make opportunities happen Dave. You're absolutely right. Not just in our jobs but also as leaders. If you're a pastor right now you're leading a church bunch of you watching a friends of mine that are doing that. Lee Small Business at Ramsey. We've got about a thousand team members. Nine hundred forty some odd team members just under a thousand If you're a leader of an organization like that and people are depending on you for the payroll to come to them for them to feed their families. You're feeling the weight of this as a leader Times like this leadership sucks some of your having to make some really hard calls from really tough decisions. We're going to be really careful and make some decisions around here. Just a couple of days ago we start pivoting a whole bunch of stuff around here. Some of you. There's going to be some things you pivot. That are tonic. Wow that.

"If you're sitting in a good position be generous something about generosity takes your eyes off of you and the fear just leaves and you start not being there and so you start not having this this idea that there's something about fear that is selfish and when you're selfless it adds hope and you start taking your eyes off of your situation and it might not be that you have a bunch of money but you may be able to just do something for someone. You may be able to be the person that delivers the groceries at someone else bought to someone who's An at risk person. Who's WHO's locked in right now and just do things for other people. We're seeing that everywhere. You're already doing that. There's lots of wonderful stories which was talking about but just whoever's service business out there still the ones that are still there for goodness sakes. They're they're scared to death. Go in there and tip the crud out of him and by the way. You probably don't do that. The rest of your life. Let people work hard work really hard? So here's the thing if you're doing really well or if you're not don't cash out your investments ride it out. It's going to be K. Breath do you really think that Apple McDonalds and Coca Cola and Microsoft and Home Depot name name companies like that for two days the wonderful great American companies? Do you really think they're all GonNa be worth zero at the end of this. Come on now. That's just illogical just not gonNA happen and If it does. If they're all worth zero we got bigger problems than a virus. Our Way of life is gone. And that's just not going to happen. That didn't even happen. In the Stock Market Crash of twenty nine some companies went out the entire. Konami did not become worse three row so the the way we project these fears and we extrapolate them and when they grow into this huge massive thing that shish not even real. It's impossible for it to be real and I and I would say the last thing kind of wrapping up the whole money section though is one thing that you can control obviously is the money that is coming in and budgeting. That's one of our huge banners. I feel like at Ramsey solutions is helping you budget. And that's just being intentional. With what every single dollar is going. We have a great budgeting APP. Everydollar love it but like finding ways for you to be super super intentional with every single dollar and that's going to be really important during this time like even my husband Winston I. We're talking about the budget this month and we're looking and I realized I just got off maternity leave just a little boy at five months ago in like we were a little like loose with the budget we still run it and doing it but we realize okay this this motivated us to even more stricter vero where are ways that we can even start to save and look and so that is one thing you can control and be intentional. Be Intentional with your money and do a budget knowing that you've got enough. Because he wrote it down gives you power. Yeah it's controlling controllables and so you know that's how it works now. Jobs jobs jobs jobs. Yeah I mean this. This corona shutdown has affected people. People are afraid it's going to affect them and they're the other people are just afraid. It's going to affect the overall economy. You're in that sector. That's what you do. Every day is help people with their jobs and even with their dreams and with career. Well there's really two pandemics that we're facing right now. We've touched on this. Obviously we have the medical pandemic but we also have the pandemic of panic and folks when when panic takes over you lose all perspective. Dave touched on this earlier quoted. Our friend world renowned economists are laugh or none of us can think clearly when we are overcome by fear and panic because you can't have perspective. The only thing you're seeing is that worst fear or multiple fierce if we look at today's world now we're talking about multiple fears are coming at people all day long. And when that's what you're focused on you can't have perspective. I get to talk to men and women every day on the Ken Coleman Show helping them figure out what they were created to do in their work and then coming up with a plan to make that a reality and I wanNA talk about perspective for just a moment and then we'll get into the short term steps right now for those of you who've lost your job or you feel like that is coming first. Let's look at the big picture. Let's talk about perspective. Yes this is an unprecedented time in history. There's no playbook for this. It just came on us very quickly and it is affecting everyone. But here's what you can be certain of in an unprecedented time of uncertainty. That your purpose. Your dreams having evaporated with this crisis. They just aren't all of a sudden gone and you can't catch him. You can't pursue them. That is ally and fear will tell you that you know. I opened up every show by telling our listeners that you're created a fill unique role that means you are needed. It means you must do it and so I know there are a lot of people that are watching tonight. This crisis has either stalled or it makes it makes it feel like your dream has been threatened. Maybe it feels like it's been taken away. Maybe it's that business you just lost or the business you were preparing to launch. Maybe it was the career switch. Maybe it was the entry point into the very thing that you've been studying for if you're a young student you're about ready to graduate. I can tell you with absolute certainty tonight and I want you to hear this and I want you to believe it that no matter what you have to do in the short term I can tell you you will get back on track. Davis said it so well tonight. You're going to be okay. We are going to be okay and I want you to have the mindset right now that no matter what delays have come your way and all the uncertainty of wind. Can I get back on track? How can I get back on track? I can tell you you will get back on track so I want you to know that. There's a pause. Sometimes that life throws at us and it's just a pause you know. I remember when. Dvr first came out. I'm a sports fan and it changed the game because I could be watching the game and if I wanted to go get some chips. Refill the chips or soda or whatever I could press pause and I didn't Miss Anything and I want you to have that sense. I want you to have that piece. That confidence that clarity that life is thrown a pause at you. But you're going to get to get back on track. Let's talk about more perspective. This economic situation right now is an absolute aberration. This is not an economic pattern. I WanNa remind you with the facts. Dave is quoted are good fringe on delauney multiple times tonight in John's absolutely right when we are faced with fear. We've got a focus on the facts. Are The facts into February? We had a record jobs report for a year and a HALF LEADING UP TO FEBRUARY. Just weeks ago folks. We were in a historic job market. In the United States. We were in a season a prolonged season where we had more jobs available than people who are unemployed. We had a job market where people were being recruited and enticed to take the very same job they had with one company. Move over to a different company doing the same job and make substantially more money. We had a job situation where college students were coming out of school and because they were new and they could come right into the market. They were making more money sometimes than folks that were more qualified or had been in the sector for longer. What am I telling you? That doesn't just completely evaporate disappear but the reality is is that when people are forced to go home for the medical practices then they are contracting their spending habits and it affects companies far and wide and Dave listed several of them. That are the most hardest hit. And so you're seeing crazy unemployment numbers. Don't let that cause you to panic. Even more that is to be expected when essentially a consumer driven economy comes to hall. Now I you deed understand this. Because here's what's going to happen. Our medical professionals are the best and the brightest in the world. They're going to lead US and guide us. And we will see this virus flatten and eventually get under control. When that happens we will begin to see a very quick return to normalcy. And when that happens you're opportunities are going to be there. Maybe even better and brighter than before. I'M NOT GONNA make you reveal this to your friends and family gathered around watching this together. But here's what we know Dave. Rachel you've heard me say this one hundred thousand times. Seventy percent of Americans were unhappy in their work prior to this. It's not fun to get kicked out of the nest but I can think multiple times in my life where I got kicked out of the nest and it was the best thing that happened to me. And so I want you to have that perspective as well. And then third let's talk about the short-term we've been talking about the long term but the short term is what matters most. We opened up tonight. We said Multiple Times through this conversation that are themes to help you see that you can control certain things and so we want you to control the controllables. You heard dave lay out the four walls. You heard Rachel talk about the budget to be able to take care of the four walls. These are things that you can control. You will control them because you will step up when you need to step up. That's what I believe about the human spirit when we are squeezed when we're challenge that's when the brightest moments come when we choose to not be defeated but we choose to get determined and so let's look at the short term as it relates to your job. Here's what we know. A lot of industries tourism hotels cruise ships airlines hotels bars. Let's call them. Non Essential Priorities K. Think of Dave's four walls. You think of small businesses right. Now that aren't in a high priority product or service. People were pulling back their money. And so it's going to be painful for a little bit. But here's the deal you can get work. Certain industries are exploding. We're seeing the delivery system manufacturing warehousing. You don't get me started on toilet paper and paper towels companies. They're making it as fast as they can make it. We see major big brands like CVs and Walgreens obviously in the medical field. They're hiring like crazy Amazon. So we have put this information out at Ramsey solutions. We're going to continue to bring it to you but all you gotta do say wait a second. I will deliver pizzas if I gotTA deliver pizzas. I'll do whatever it takes in my area in my zip code to bring in some money to take care of these four walls. I'm going to change my budget. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa do something that maybe I've never done before which is truly cut to the bone of those most important things that I want to bring you in for Sega before rap on this because I you started talking about budgeting I mean people can really get way down to the nitty gritty and they can begin to see the second one. I've got a cover isn't as much as maybe I thought it was the true essentials. Yeah absolutely I mean when you get on a budget everyone says I gotTa Race Right. Because you're just being that intentional. So yeah the budget is going to be your friend this whole process. If you've lost your job but I also think about you know if you are the person that lost her job in you are the main source of income as your family and you go home and you have a spouse and kids. They're like that's a scary thing to say. Hey Okay I I'm stuck like I lost my job and and there's a real stress on that I mean even just the kids being school. Can we have young kids? We're not home schoolteachers. Let's just say it out loud? I can't even spilled common core one carry the but really. I'm like you know there's there's a level of stress within the Family. That's going to be caused by this. But what you can control what he just talked about and going and getting a new job. I think you know it may take a little bit of time for short term but doing that. I think it's going to is huge even from the family landscape as well so this comes down to what I think will be a really big enemy for some of you right now. And that's pride we all suffer from pride nobody's immune to it and what? I mean by this is you know I had a good corporate job Or I had whatever your job was and all of a sudden you gotta stock shelves at Walmart or your grocery store.

"And we've got to change it talked to you about sort of how you see yourself fitting into Democratic Party politics at this point interesting news today about Steve Bullock. He was in and out in a hot minute. And the presidential race and Democrats are ecstatic today about the reports that he is going to jump into that Senate rate send Montana because he's perceived to be the best shot at winning back that the Democrats which would go along way toward getting Mitch McConnell out of Control of the Senate now when he was running for president part of the reason he articulated for why he was running for president because he worried that the primary was two left he were the policies like Medicare for all your signature. Healthcare policy was going to be alienating to too many potential Democratic voters so in a universe in which you're the leading war one of the two leading candidates for the nomination you may be the nominee. Steve Bullock is a very important democratic Senate nominee. Potentially in Montana. Can you help him get elected or do you have to keep your distance that he will he will make decisions but of course? I can help them at the. I've heard this argument a whole lot of time. I believe that in the general election the way you be trump. Is that the largest voter turnout in history. This country do not underestimate donald trump. You'll have endless amounts of money. Because he doesn't believe in the rule of law He will combine federal agencies with his own campaign. He has loyal group of supporters. So it's going to be so easy to beat them but I believe that it will be very hard to beat him when you're running a old fashioned type of campaign when you're running a you know the same old same old. You need energy. You need excitement. We need to bring working class people into the campaign some of them may have voted for trump. We need to bring young people into the campaign. Maybe who never voted before? And you talk about Medicare for all Medicare for all is wildly popular with working class and lower income people who understand that we have a dysfunctional health care system. We are spending twice as much and by the way I would love to debate Joe Biden on this issue. Give us an hour on. Msnbc all right where we can talk about how anybody could defend a system in which we're spending twice as much per capita on healthcare as the people of any other country and yet eighty seven million uninsured thirty thousand die. Half a million people go bankrupt every year because a medically related debt and we spent far and away the highest prices the world for prescription drugs. You want to defend that system. Let's do it. I think that that is an issue that wins that speaks the needs of working families people the test the greed and the corruption of the pharmaceutical industry is president of the United States. I will take them on. You know I'm GonNa ask you the follow-up question now about turnout because you you as long as I have been talking to you about American politics you have made this case and I have. I believe it that turnout is the difference in that when it comes to progressive politics in particular increased turnout gets you and increase shot of not only changing Democratic Party but changing the country. And the turnout is not there for you. The turn out is the turnout does not look good. Thus far in the Democratic primary we can talk about that in detail. But I know you're aware of it but let me just say this in terms of young people. I mean one of the issues that should be talked about to his credit and I wish we could do better. Joe Biden is doing very very well with people. Sixty five rolled. We're not doing phenomenally. Well with people thirty or undone now. Which Group of people is there? More potential to grow the base the bring people in clearly. Young people historically have not voted in the kinds of numbers that one would like them to vote. It's going up but it is nowhere near as high as it is with all it's not going up and that's with your campaign right now. Firing on all cylinders and all the benefit you out from all the amazing organizing you didn't 2016. No states last night's on increase in young voters as a percentage of the electorate compared with twenty sixteen in in North Carolina and Tennessee and Virginia even here in Vermont Young voters made up a smaller proportion of the electorate than in twenty sixteen. Why are fewer young people turning out in twenty twenty? I mean what I will tell you is that an I what we tripled. We increase by thirty three percent. The number of young people who participate. I'm not familiar with these statistics. I really haven't seen them but look. This is the challenge that we have. We have the lowest voter turnout of almost every major country on earth less than sixty percent poor people in America by very big numbers. Do not vote. How do we bring them into the political process? Why do they not go? Why are young people not only? This is tough stuff. And you're right. We are trying to do that. I understand that it is easier to bring older. People have been voting for their whole lives but we are working really hard to try to bring people out. I think in the general election we will be successful. I WANNA I WANNA go back to that in terms of the general election how it might be different but on this question of working class voters in Virginia. Virginia was the one St yesterday where we actually did see a bit of a surge in voters without a four year college degree. In Virginia it was up in terms of raw numbers and the proportion from two thousand sixteen but Joe Biden carried. Those voters two to one and we didn't see a surge and working class voters and other states. And because it's the because it's so central to your idea of what your brand of politics is why people should get involved in the electoral process. But I don't understand is why and more while you're not this year and what I have seen. Is that in the previous states. In fact we did very well with working class people. This is the first one I'm hearing about that. But at the end of the day I have not the slightest out in the world that our campaign is the campaign that speaks the working class. People who have long been ignored with establishment has turned their backs on them. And if you look at the numbers Medicare for all is extremely popular with working class. People who cannot afford to pay in some cases twelve fifteen thousand dollars a year for the healthcare that they currently have so. I have zero doubt that our agenda which calls for raising the minimum wage to fifteen bucks demanding that the wealthy and the powerful stop paying their fair share of taxes dealing with climate change through a green new deal in creating up to twenty million jobs. That is the agenda that will win the election of the trump and the argument is that the agenda will drive the turnout overall. You've talked about needing the biggest voter turnout that America has ever seen and that you needed in those specific swabs the electorate that are underrepresented. That don't feel politics. Works for them. If the agenda is working to spike turn out in those groups to bring it up overall and I will tell you. The data says that. It's not right now in two thousand twenty data in the state. The early three states that you won the turnout was either. It was either flat or it was statistically significant in terms of its Nevada. One hundred twenty percent increase. Voter turnout New Hampshire the largest voter turnout in the history. I always flat. I was flat New Hampshire. When you compare it with two thousand and eight you look at population. Two thousand eight was when Obama ran his campaign. Yes all right. Well that's fine well bomber ran and exceptional campaign but in the Vata turnout was twenty percent higher. Shot Lodges Voter Turnout in. Its history was slow in terms of. Do you think that you should be able to match two thousand eight voter turnout numbers? I would hope so and I hope that in the general election I think the fact that here's the point about the general election number one. I believe I know that every Democratic candidate will support the widow. Those who have left the race. I will support Biden Biden will support me. We will bring together ninety nine percent of all Democratic voters. That's not the question they've got to come in. Because trump is the most dangerous president in modern history doesn't understand the constitution doesn't care for the rule of law is a racist and sexist et CETERA. We will get them so the challenges. How do you expand the vase? And if anybody thinks you could do it through the same old same old type of politics I would respectfully disagree your energy. You're GONNA need excitement and I think that is the campaign that we have. And by the way I do not accept that Medicare Medicare for all polled very well. Yesterday among Democratic voters demanding the wealthy and the powerful stop paying their fair share of taxes is extremely popular with the concept of a wealth tax that Elizabeth Warren and I have talked about is a very popular concept so I believe that not only. Are the ideas that I am talking about? Ideas that are long overdue ideas that exists in many cases in every other country. You're talking about Medicare for all you know we all right now. Fifty miles from the Canadian border go up to Canada. Everybody there has health care is a human right. The quality is good. They're spending less that fifty percent of what we're spending. Why why are you saying? And it speaks to the power of the drug companies the insurance companies who dominate because on and healthcare they make one hundred billion a prophet eighty seven million. People uninsured underinsured. I don't think it's a radical idea Rachel. I don't think making public colleges and universities as radical idea it exists in Germany existing countries and Scandinavia. All over the world and then you get the climate change. Is it radical to say that we should try to save the planet and tell the fossil fuel industry can't destroyed the planet? I don't think it's a radical idea so I reject problems that we have to use an extremist. There's nothing we are fighting for. That is extreme would exist all over this country it is what the American people want and are sanders. Have a lot more to ask you about including some news about corona virus a very surprising new proposal from the trump administration related to corona virus. That has a little touch on the Medicare for all right. Let's talk about that when we come back we're with Senator Bernie Sanders Vermont here in Burlington..

"Who the target was was extremely small and it was a matter of hours that people knew that this was happening in in that very small group? So that's it's the exact question of trying to get an answer to tonight. Rachel is exactly what. What were they doing in advance in hell far in advance were they was the US military planning for this and what the potential blowback can be and how they prepare in advance for it? General Milley the chairman of the Joint Chiefs today specifically said that they have he has the forces they're are necessary to protect US assets but that was hours before this happened. The entire situation has changed since Rachel intern coordinator in terms of what happens next next year. Obviously we've been talking tonight about all of these experts in the field national security experts talking about how the Ron may take their time and their response and that they may respond in a way that it is quite irregular rather than just the regular sort of asymmetric warfare. They they mount all over the world that they may pursue things like assassinations. They may try I to extend their reach quite far around the globe in terms of how they go after specific American targets that they think merit a proportion they think would merit a proportionate response is at the Pentagon that response to that is that US intelligence that also response to those kinds of threats. Do we know if any of that's being scaled up it's going to be all of the all of the above because we also the with Iran we don't know if they're going to respond necessarily to use installations to military bases to diplomatic posts or will they respond to in in a way going after commercial shipping as we've seen them do over the summer the potentials also you know they could go in a cyber realm. The potential sensual is is is so wide and broad at this point that I think the the US government. I can imagine at this point all over the US government they are looking at the potentials and how they can can. They can shore up any kind of defenses all over for any potential Ronnie and Response Certainly Kobe. Pentagon correspondent for NBC News. Thank you very much appreciated. Thanks all right. We'll be right back almost one. AM here on the East Coast. We're continuing to follow the late breaking news. That president trump ordered the killing of the top military leader in Iran.

"Thank you both thank you all three of you for being here i i'm super nervous to talk to you very happy that you're here let me start with the some of the stormy daniels stuff that we learned today danny what's retainer a retainer is an interesting concept sometimes it's a flat fee but sometimes it's an amount that's paid you that you have to put into your client trust account and then pay yourself as you bill hourly but there are a lot of rules that relate to retainers retainer you can't just in many cases take someone's check or take someone's money and just stuff it in your pocket just as it is with any business in america but with lawyers there are several additional ethical rules we have to tell our client what we're charging them ideally it should be an unwritten fee agreement there is a paper trail rachel and i'm not so sure there was one in this case so in this the reason it's newly relevant and the reason we're all trying to figure out what that might mean legally is that rudy giuliani is now saying that the way the president paid people including stormy daniel he's suggesting that might be multiple this ranging from multiple people is that he had a retainer that he was paying michael cohen as attorney michael cohen was doing no legal work in conjunction with that retainer and so therefore that money was a pass through that he funneled money that's the way that's the term is funneled money through michael cohen to pay people and it looked like legal fees it looked like legal that it's money that he was paying michael cohen for legal work even though it it wasn't clearly there'd be an ethical problem for michael cohen on that it sounds like i think the problem is the least of the concerns because ethical problems really relate to your professional your professional responsibility and your license right but whenever you're funneling through any intermediary company and concealing the source concealing the destination you run into actual federal law and criminal law and that can be a problem but at least in terms of retainers no retainers were not designed to be loans or or money that gets paid out and paid in you can't use your slush funds.

"All this way well the president can express a desire that the attorney general's stay in a case but you shouldn't be surprised by what am about to say rachel uh the department of justice is full of lawyers and so there is a bunch of rules that are written down about when you must recuse herself and when you should recuse yourself so the must category is really easy but say you would have a financial stake in the outcome of the case must refuse yourself ward involves a family member you must recuse yourself but there's also a whole bunch of instances where you should recuse yourself where for instance your participation in a case would give rise to an appearance of a conflict of interest because after the justice system appearances count for a lot and so in my view this is really a pretty simple call the attorney general had at the very least an appearance of a conflict in fact he may actually be a witness in this case loose there is the potential for that he had the recused himself and there's nothing that the president or anyone else should have done or could have done really to stop that from happening and the president getting involved in this way personally directing somebody to go intervene in that process to try to stop the recusal could that be construed as a form of obstruction or interference with the working with the proper workings of the justice department around initially like that the answer to that is maybe an in here's why i'm going to be a little we easily on my answer to your original it.

"National security advisor michael flynn pled guilty to lying to the fbi about talking with the russian ambassador about sanctions we now know from good reporting that's not contested from the white house that a lot of other trump transition officials knew that he had had those conversations with the russians about sanctions several of them who were told about those conversations then publicly lied about it there's been reporting that the special councils particularly interested in flint spiring whether there were attempts to obstruct the investigation into have given all of that do you have any sense anything you can speak about publicly as to why so many people in the trump administration publicly lied about mike flynn and the fact that he was talking to the russians about sanctions do you have any sense of what was motivating that you have rachel that the pattern here whether it's around michael flynn or anyone else who had contacts with russia was to protect candidate or president trump and then to protect themselves and only when the fbi uh or our investigation of reporting has confronted them with conflicting evidence have they sometimes come around but also uh what the other question i have is a why did they allow michael flynn to stay on for so long once they knew that he had lied now bob moeller to contrast with president trump when he found out he had an agent too had the perception of a of a fit for favoritism for a canon for one of the persons being investigated he was fired immediately he was let go and president trump only fired michael flynn once it became a public relations problem for him if you want to compare the two as far as their character congressman eric swallow of california judiciary committee member intelligence committee member.
