Uplift Yourself To Uplift Others
"Hi there welcome back to another episode super excited you tuning in again now. Today's episode. I would like the top little bit more about how to uplift yourself in order to uplift others. And why you must do your work first before you can actually help others. So the thing is you know you have to. It all starts with you now. You can't really help others if you haven't done your own work first and especially when it comes to healing and and being light worker and being an impasse being back coach a mentor. Anything where you're actually helping other people in one inner level you gotta do your own work first before you can help someone else. It all starts with you or otherwise. You won't know how to help them right because you must learn what it's like or what they're experiencing in also how to make it out of a challenge before you can really effectively help someone else. So for example you are a healer. You have to go through your own healing. I oh he others. Let's say you're a coach or a mentor. You have have to do your own. Inner work i in order to impact someone else. Let's say you wanna create abundance right. You must have experienced financial hardship. I in order to know what others are. What needs to happen to break through any limitation whether your business coach mindset coach healer. A light worker or anything anything. Were you actually help other people. You've got to experience the stuff yourself first before you can help others and i get like someone actually asked me today because i had a conversation with someone and she was kind of frustrated because you know she has been trying to grow her business for many years and has really worked and you know she's she wants to empower others but the message that i was able to challenge for her to give her was that she hasn't really done her work yet. She hasn't gone deep enough and one of the things she had mentioned to music. But dr stay help other people. He'll you know they haven't experienced that. But the thing is. And i get it. I mean it does make sense may doctors. They help a lot of people. But if you're thinking about a doctor who only has book smarts will never be able to understand someone that for example experience physical pain now i exempt i have fibromyalgia and back into the nineteen hurt myself so bad that i had multiple things going on now. The doctors that i saw i saw multiple doctors. Not one of them understood what. I was saying because i kept telling them. It's like muscle related. But they kept saying no. It's your back you know. Because i also have a pinched nerve. I mean i have the degenerating discs. What herniated clear like no. No no this comes from you back. But i actually then discovered that i have do till ten and apathy. So it's like actually the tenants were inflamed. But you see the thing is all the doctors are. I think about six in one year. Not one was actually listening to me and hearing what i was saying. They couldn't empathize with me. Because day simply didn't know what i was experiencing and that's what i mean like you cannot help someone truly make a transformation. Yeah you can maybe give them some advice of what you have learned. Let's say you've done courses or if you've read a lot of books whatnot. Maybe you have the book smarts off how to create abundance or law attraction right but if you have never experienced a yourself you will the quality of service that you can provide to impact that you will provide will be completely different than you would have experienced it yourself so going back to the doctors example right in yes. The doctors can help patients by what they have learned. But when it's something like like what i experienced with pain or whatnot. If they've never experienced it they would never understand what i'm going through. And they would also not be able to help me as much as someone who would have experienced themselves with someone that had passed fibromyalgia to end. Who's overcome pain or whatnot.

The Philadelphia Eagles Soap Opera Continues
"Not a lack of things to talk about for for a football team that won four games is in a limited and is eliminated. We got the playoffs starting We gotta lot Torto when it comes to the Philadelphia Eagles, because this soap opera continues, right story lines continue to be churned out each and every day something new. Coming. And then on Tuesday, so the latest on Tuesday was there was the Jeff McClain report. Came out Tuesday morning That said some of the Eagles players had to be restrained in going after Doug Peterson on the sideline when he decided when, when the decision was made, I'm going to start not going to say when he decided I'm going to say when the decision was made. To pull Jalen hurts. I heard a few people today. Actually took, you know tonight as well. Mention How You know how Doug Peterson What a disgrace! He Woz making that decision. Let's just start with that if you really think that it was Doug Peterson's call. Yeah, you could say he's spineless. You could say he's too much of a company man. You could say all those kind of things. But if you don't think that this Woz a decision that was made during the week prior to the game You're not really paying attention. The way this thing works with this organization. This was 100% a call from on high And as I said in the post game show. I'm not outraged. Like everybody else. Like like the majority of people are. I shouldn't say everybody. The majority of people are about this. I think the handling other was clumsy. To say the least. Like you're either in or you're out. What you could have done in the beginning of the week, or at least throughout the week or even later in the week. Whatever. If you were Doug Peterson, you could've put it out there that day. Listen, we're out of it. We're gonna play hard on the field, but we're gonna take a look at some people that maybe haven't had an opportunity this season, including Nate said felt Could've done that. Could avoid a lot of this. You could've very simply started him at the beginning of the third quarter. My theory is With the amount of players that the Eagles had inactive who could have played by the way? They thought they'd be getting killed in the game. They weren't getting killed in the game. In fact, it was close. It was a three point game. And that really put a cramp. In the game plan. And Doug could have pulled him earlier for sure. And they would have avoided a lot of this. But for me If this is a one o'clock game Everybody's losing their mind. And I gotta tell you I was on during the Christmas and New Year break, Probably 12 out of 13 days, 11 hours 13 days somewhere around there. If I put a percentage on the amount of calls from people That wanted them to win. I put it in the like 15 percentile. The large majority of the calls that I got. What if the Eagles to lose and get the best draft pick because they had nothing to play for? And that tune has changed for a lot of folks and I'm not sure exactly why was it just the aesthetic of watching it. Here's the thing. I get it if you're a player and you're angry You know, we're gonna play the mile Sanders cut. He was over the mid day guys on Tuesday. And he expressed what I'm sure was the sentiment with a lot of guys. Mile. Sanders wasn't on the field. He was one of the inactives. But if you're Jason Kelsey, if you're Brandon Graham You know, filling your veteran player. Sure I get it. You know, putting your health on the line to not win. I understand it. But if You thought

Joe Bidens presidency
"And foremost happy new year to all our listeners. At the ever present risk of tempting fate it does feel like two thousand and twenty one can only be an improvement on two thousand and twenty one. Primary cause for optimism is the fact that after january twentieth earth's most powerful office will no longer be held by america's worst on imprisoned citizen description. Correct as of this broadcast between an untamed pandemic economic crisis and the spectacular mess made in general by president. Donald trump president elect joe biden faces a daunting oval office in trae won joint first of all by christchurch mcnichols news editor and by suzanne lynch washington dc correspondent with the irish times in this first part of the show. We'll look mostly at what president-elect joe biden wants to do and will do domestically but chris festival on that thought of succeeding donald trump. How much political capital does joe biden inherit just by virtue of not being donald trump. Well to be honest in some ways. That is a question that will be. I think more important end to discuss in the second half of our show. We look at foreign policy. Because i think that is where there is arguably a lot more political capital. You know joe biden will enter office of this month to lead a country that is still extraordinarily divided. It has to be said that whatever Court decisions were taken efforts to reverse. This election rejected by courts and by many academics. Who saw you know and others observers. Who saw no real evidence of fraud. It is important to point out. I think that potentially a majority of republicans are going to come into this year. Voters believing. Joe biden is illegitimate that that is not correct. That is not that is not what happened. But it is nevertheless a danger for democracy. And it's something that really i think is important to watch. Joe biden essentially has a tremendous amount of goodwill from half of the country who expects him to reverse many of the policies that donald trump implemented over the last four years and he will do a number of those from day one but we should not forget the other half of the country that will be causing a huge stink about all of this and it will be very interesting to watch how he tries to bridge those gaps particularly when it is such a strong divide as i say even in the sense of many just simply not even seeing him as their president suzanne to bring you in that division that chris delineates the is going to make extremely complicated one question. Joe biden will have to grapple with which is what does he do about donald trump. Does he as best he can. Just ignore him and hope he goes away or does he turn various congressional committees and the department of justice loose to try and get to the bottom wherever it may be of whatever. Wrongdoing was done. I don't think joe biden instinct will be to do that. I mean joe biden has presented himself very much as the kind of the nation's healer. He's talked about his own track record when he was in the senate for so many years of working across the aisle with republicans and working productively republicans. Now some might say that. Joe biden is suffering from naive radio. That washington has changed. That things have become much more polarized on they have in the last decade or so so he for example has has quietly hinted at his relationship with mitch. Mcconnell mitch. mcconnell is more more than likely going to be leading. i'm the two men have worked together. Particularly joe biden was vice president and mitch mcconnell in the senate and but even still you know. We saw mitch mcconnell reluctance to add call. Joe biden president-elect even though he had had won the election so that is a major at challenge for at for joe biden is going to be handling congress also. The problem facing him is democrats did very badly in november's election in terms of their seats. Both the senate and the house so not to pelosi now coming into a new year coming into a new congress with a much reduced majority and that is going to make things tricky for her. She's going to be tried keeper own party in check and i think a lot of the more left wing elements of the democratic party. Who basically were prepared to put away their differences with the establishment democratic party. If you like to try and defeat. Donald trump i now all gloves off and i think we're going to see this element of the party. The bernie sanders winged. Aoc wing. you know. Really kind of be vocal about what they believe. This joe biden presidency should deliver so i think you know that whole political reality of how washington is going to work with the mats in the house and the senate is going to be a constant challenge for joe biden other tries to govern. We'll chris let's look at the most pressing issues that will face president joe biden which is of course the covid nineteen pandemic now. Obviously there are grounds for optimism. Which is that a vaccine exists but it is going to take a while to get it to everybody. We are still months away from normality returning to the united states. Between now and then is there anything. The president biden will actually realistically be able to do to make an obviously already dreadful situation slightly less dreadful. Well i think he is going to try his damnedest to do that. he has set this or that that we all know now of Essentially a one hundred million doses of the vaccine in his first one hundred days disseminated to the public That's an ambitious goal. Although at the same time it it should be said that this was A goal if you will of the trump administration as well And this was. This was something that was planned. They had essentially bought one hundred million doses for the first quarter But the biggest challenge that we are going to see this In these first one hundred days is really going to be how that is disseminated. How is it gotten through to hospitals. you know and how states and local authorities cooperate with the federal government in order for that dissemination to take place how the army is potentially involved. It is a herculean task to get all of these vaccines out as quickly as joe biden has promised and i think it's going to be interesting because on the one hand you know he is as we you know he's he's still not president until january twentieth much of the work on this has been done by the trump administration At the same time there is you know there is this risk if you will or you could also put it in a positive way. There's an opportunity in that joe biden. I think will very quickly find that. This becomes his pandemic to deal with. And that he will be reckoned with in terms of how he is able to get certain programs underway. That means that his people his entire operation is really going to have to hit the ground running incredibly quickly when they take over in particular because they also have not gotten that much help that much cooperation from the trump administration in the transition. Suzanne joe biden has of course being in the white house during one previous dramatic intervention in the united states economy. When he and barrack obama arrived in the wake of the two thousand eight collapse will he be tempted towards something similar in the current circumstances or preceding more on the assumption that wants the vaccine is taking effect. The us economy will more or less sort itself out. Well it's it's a very good point. Under i mean i think there are lots of parallels here actually to what obama faced obama joe biden back into into a nine and you know even between the election on the inauguration i mean america. I'm particularly america then. The wider world was embroidered the biggest financial crisis in decades. And they have to deal with that. So yes there are a lot of parallels i think joe biden has a proven record on this and they were able to pass the tariff act. They did the the bailout fund for the auto industry hugely complex pieces of legislation. Where a lot of money involved. And that may well be the case. Again i mean the. Us economy at the figures december have been worrying. There has been worst. Jobless figures than had been expected am the signs of recovery. We saw in the late summer. You know really didn't continue as we kind of got into that second. Wave around thanksgiving time so i think the economic consequences. This you know are really not getting. Maybe enough attention here. Obviously so at the figures are overwhelming in terms of the deaths the infection rates and but there's also a huge impact on the economy. And i think we're going to see i. I believe around the world. It's it would probably accentuate this. You know the difference between the house and the have nots. If you like you know the poorer are are people who are have lost. Their jobs are in less secure. And yes we're seeing the stock market. Do very very well throw twenty twenty and a lot of people. You know hoarding cash. Essentially as saving. So these kind of issues i think are going to be front and foremost for joe biden particularly. I mentioned already because of this very strong left wing within his party. They want joe biden. Who who has been pivoting. More to the left economically i think for example compared to say a hillary clinton at the time you know four years ago and i think he has suggested you know with his pick johnny yet and his treasury secretary. She talked about for example. The need to address structural issues economic inequality along racial and gender lines in the united states describing how they are important for the economy to address that. So you know what he's going to do in terms of getting more covert relief. Package is going to be a key element of this first one hundred days in parallel to the huge logistical challenge of getting those vaccinations out trying to encourage people to get vaccinated etc and again. This is all going to depend on his relationship with congress and these are going to be. It's going to be a lot of money involved in this and Republicans in particular in the sandwich have been At loggerheads with democrats out late twenty twenty about the size and scope of a of any rescue package for the american economy and you know commentators ironic air pointing out the national dash went way up under trump a now are we going to start hearing republicans complaining about the national debt. So i think that whole aspect as i say in parallel to the the health issue is going to be a key concern for biden in the first few months presidency. Chris susanne mentioned there a couple of members of president-elect biden's domestic team we should talk about obviously the highest profile member of that domestic team which vice president-elect kamala harris do. You anticipate that she'll be a more visible and obviously engaged vice president than usual because it's going to be a very different relationship. Between her and president biden vice president biden had with president barrack. Obama perhaps ironically as things have turned out biden. wasn't really seen as a natural apprentice. successor To the much younger president he was he was running alongside whereas you already. Since there's a a feeling gathering kamla harris's president in waiting. Well i think To continue the two thousand two thousand nine parallels in in some ways. This is a sort of the reverse of that. As as you're discussing. Because i think when joe biden came into office as vice president he sort of provided the experienced the heft to the to the obama administration as the time as the sort of political establishment candidate for you know a relative neophyte in barack obama at the time and so his role You know he was. Obviously you also had before that dick. Cheney famously is maybe the vice president who really transformed the role but joe biden sort of ran with that and he was this You know incredibly powerful Very involved vice president as involved if not more involved than dick. Cheney was as vice president you know before that vice presidency often was seen as this very unimportant role and so i think in that sense perhaps looking now to kamala harris In some ways there's a reverse there because she is not the one providing the heft if you will joe biden is now even more experienced than he was back then so he will be the the fully experienced leader if you will in this campaign In this in this white house And so the question will be in that sense. What kind of room. He is willing to give kamala harris. What exactly she is going to put her stamp on In terms of us. And i think that's still a bit of an open debate. He obviously picked kamala harris because they have a good working relationship. She is somebody who was Arguably more of a centrist than some of the other candidates that he could have picked. You know she's not from the bernie sanders wing of the party. I think that was important because in wanted to pick somebody not only who was historic in terms of being a woman. I african american as well in the vice presidency But really somebody that he could have a good working relationship with in order to use her as both a trusted adviser and entrust her with leading on certain issues. So i think it will be very interesting to see how that relationship plays out and finally as you say as one point he obviously has not expressly said it but many would assume. There's a very good chance that joe biden will be a one term president and so in that sense. Yes this is. Come a harris's chance to really show that she is the one who will take up the mantle of being the leader of the democratic party of the future christchurch. Mac thank you for the moment.
Senate to debate larger stimulus checks and defense spending bill
"Senate debate will begin today on whether to override President Trump's veto of the defense spending bill. The bill initially passed with an overwhelming majority, however, Trump took issue with the bill was aims to strip Confederate names from U. S military bases. He also wants the measure to remove liability protections. For online platforms such as Twitter. Independent Senator Bernie Sanders says he plans to filibuster unless the Senate votes to increase coronavirus stimulus payments. Mitch McConnell, the majority leader in the Senate, says that there will be some time need to be taken for discussions of all of these issues
DeSantis wants hospitals to vaccinate at-risk, elderly Floridians
"Rhonda Rhonda Sanders Sanders continues continues to to say say that that his his plan plan of of immunizing immunizing Florida's Florida's elderly elderly population population for for the the coronavirus coronavirus first first is is better than what other states plan to do A recommendation from CDC that you do so called essential workers, but we were not going to be putting young people ahead of our elderly popular Mission, and I think that recommendation would have done that. That's why, after frontline health care workers and those in nursing homes have had their opportunity. The sadness is allowing members of the general population over the age of 65 to get the vaccine. Several counties have started that this week.
McConnell dashes hopes for $2,000 coronavirus relief checks
"An attempt to vote on boosting the checks to Americans in a coronavirus relief bill to $2000 Majority leader Mitch McConnell says they've already passed a relief bill struck a balance between broad support for all kinds of households. Lot more targeted relief for those who need help the most. This is Vermont's Bernie Sanders. All that we are asking for is a vote. What is the problem? The governor of New Hampshire, Kristen Nunu, is canceling his outdoor inauguration ceremony next month for public safety reasons, mostly armed protesters who have been gathering outside his home in the weeks since he issued a mask order. Britain's parliament voted to
McConnell ties efforts to increase stimulus payments to other issues
"From the Hill newspaper, the Senate appear poised to override President Trump's veto over defense policy bill handing the president's stinging rebuke in the final days of his administration. The issue is likely to come to a head either on New Year's Day or the following day. In a rare Saturday vote. With a group of lawmakers threatening to drag out the veto fight as they tried to leverage the 17 $40 billion defense measure into getting a vote on the House passed stimulus checks Bill here is the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell on the Senate floor. Does the sun it was supposed to finish legislation securing critical tools, training and support for America's armed forces. But the junior senator from Vermont had other ideas. Remember, Senator Sanders spent last summer literally trying to defund our military? Not my words, Mr President, but the title of the piece he published defund the Pentagon. The liberal case are calling. All through an amendment to strip 10% of funding from our service members and decimate our defense budget. Russians aren't cutting military funding. China isn't cutting funding. But last summer, Senator Sanders and fellow Democrats including the Democratic leader voted to make America unilaterally disarm and cut hours left took a break from trying to defund the police to try to defund our armed forces. Their amendment went down in a landslide. But now our colleague from Vermont Again putting political stunts before the needs of our men and women in uniform. Our colleague says he will slow down this vital bill unless he gets the muscle through another standalone proposal from Speaker Pelosi that would add roughly a half a trillion dollars to the national debt, which does not align with what President Trump has suggested that which has no realistic path to quickly pass the Senate. Well, as I've said the Senate will not let our national security be shoved off course, certainly not by centers. Who have spent years 30 years trying to got America's capabilities. While our adversaries continue ramping up, the Senate will stay on this important bill until we complete it one way or another, the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, He was referring to Senator Bernie Sanders, independent from Vermont to caucuses with the Democrats following Senator McConnell on the floor Senate. Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, the minority leader, who said When it comes to these two issues that veto override and the stimulus checks, they should not be pitted against one another. Now, As I said yesterday, they are to two major issues before the Senate right now the annual defense spilled and the vital and important effort to send $2000 stimulus checks to American families. There are only a few days left in this session on the Senate should consider both issues. For a journey. There's a very simple solution to this dilemma. Leader McConnell should bring both measures up for a vote and let the chips fall where they may. I believe both measures. Then the defense override, and the $2000 checks to American families will both pass. But at the very least, the Senate deserves the opportunity for an up or down vote on increasing the individual payments to the American people. So at the end of my remarks, I will ask the Senate to set a time to night. For a vote on the House bill to provide $2000 checks. The Republican leader objected to a similar request I made yesterday and it appears he may be considering a different bill that packages stimulus checks with other unrelated and partisan policies. So I want to be very clear about one thing. There is no other game in town beside the House bill, the on leeway the on leeway. To get to the American people. The $2000 checks they deserve and need is to pass the House bill and pass it Now the house is recessed for the year. Any modification or addition to the House bill cannot become law before the end of this Congress. It's a way to kill to kill the bill. Make no mistake about it, either. The Senate takes up and passes the House bill or Struggling American families will not get $2000 checks during the worst economic crisis and 75 years Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer. He did ask for unanimous consent to bring up that bill and Senate Republican leader the majority leader, Mitch McConnell, did object.

Where i learned and studied had a make jewelry at the bench and so i sort of fused the sketching and drawing with the technical engineering and manufacturing jury. It's so cool and people forget that jewelry because it's beautiful. And i think people look at jewelry and many other creative products like that more as art but they forget that it really does require serious engineering skills. It's serious engineering mathematical. In fact yes and that's the funniest part because as a daughter of a math teacher and i it was my most hated subject and to stay. My mom's always like you know the funniest thing is is the one of my children that uses geometry all day. Long is you all. I do is math. And all the designed for juries constantly. Math knits precise and it has to be exact and It's very specific and so it is an extremely rare just talking about this yesterday. There's no room for air in germany. Materials are not forgiving since the engineering aspect of. It is a huge part. And when you consider how delicate at all yan is it's expensive it can be. You can ruin the materials if you're not working slowly and focused it's challenging at times barely frustrating. What was it like when you left new york. And you mentioned that you went to san francisco. Yeah you you trained with this master. Other what hap. How do you show up in my brain. It's like the what's the what's the disney movie fantasia. When you chose to be the apprentice you know and you have to figure out how to how to learn this major trade. Yeah i mean. I was very bad at first. I was very bad at at making find jewelry physically by hand So it was real love hate relationship for me and there were definitely moments where i was like am i am i in the right place here you know..

Love. Allure CR fashion book Esquire Glamour G., G. Q. Interview, and like every other magazine that exists and walked in some of the most important runway shows in fashion. She is incredible we her style. There's so much need to talk to her especially about the fact that has she ever worn a bathing suit that has a bum these welcome to lady Gang Jasmine Sanders. Okay. Okay you guys. First of all I have to say something I've never seen a more perfect face on zoom. It's not fair. Make you I have to say better than the best introduction I think I've ever gotten in my entire life so Come with me everywhere. Like bows amazing. Jasmine. When did you look in the mirror and realize that you're being hot? So, my. What a great first question. We want know what? We've never had that moment. You are all beautiful do not have their. Six and. Twenty like I had the whole duckling experience I also got braces I wanted to say that was my junior year in high school. So that was quite experience because I felt like I had already kind of blossomed a little better than I did the Mike. And then out of nowhere, my dentists hit me with brace space out of nowhere and I was like things aren't bad enough. Weight to throw that out me I'm trying like struggling to graduate and everything I. I had bigger issues to worry about So yeah, I don't know. Okay. So my knowledge of the sports illustrated cover I believe it to be true that you shoot you go down you shoot all around the world and no, there's no set up where they're like, okay girls this is the cover they shoot everything and then they look at all the photos and. Decide what is the best photo we took Yeah for me I think that you are absolutely right. We all go in there. We have absolutely no idea if our images are going to be used as the cover we shoot maybe like I want to say I shot probably fourteen or fifteen swimsuits and you may not even see all of the ones that we shot. A lot of the images like you get all of the images online but you don't get all of that and the magazine as well. So you have to really be in tune with the website and the magazines to make sure you get a bit all of the behind the scenes, all of the stuff from their instagram, all of that but you have absolutely no idea the second that you're shooting you're just like, let me give each bathing suit my all because I've never know which one they're gonNA pick and it could be one where may be your least favorite. But then you see it and you're like, you know what that I? Should've trusted MJ and I honestly I always just like put my all in that everything that I do. But like this shoot I really was like, let me go above and beyond and maybe by fingers crossed, this could happen and we it is very rare that they shoot more than one model together or us even laughing with our travels. So we the girls I think all of us were kind of just excited like, okay. We get to shoot together maybe they're doing something exciting inside the magazine or like going to do a different type of spread in the in the internal I don't know what I'm saying I'm like rambling. In the pages but. It is it ended up being on the cover and I think all of us freaked out just as much like I. I was completely shocked and I was definitely not thinking that we were GonNa have. To covers each which is really crazy. It's insane. Now I read that and I knew we we knew we loved you but we knew we loved you more when I read an article that your prep for the sports illustrated shoe was Pasta Tequila Oh my God. Yes. God bless you the first year, my rookie year I really like buckled down and try to make sure that I was like in tiptop shape. I wanted my body to look its best like I've always been into sport.

In power and confident beautiful women who are all shapes and sizes. So for me this year I was just like you know ed I worked my butt off last year I was super toned I for myself I felt like I looked my best that I've ever loved but I was like let's try a more one.

My good week is so I have had this teacher in high, School Mrs Osmond, and she was my like Tuesdays with Morrie teacher and she was the teacher that changed my life. She was my ap English teacher in Tenth Grade She made me fall in love with reading and writing, and she was just the most amazing incredible person. We still keep in touch to this day and when we're writing the book like the thing that I could not wait is to send her a copy of act like a lady and I finally sent it to her and I was I acknowledged that we are near times bestsellers all this shit and she was so. Excited and proud of me, and it was just a nice full circle moment and it made me feel really good on the inside I have a question. Now, there will not there was not a moment in time when you're like. I don't know if this is appropriate to send. Yes. Not your one day stand I had acknowledged that in the note that I wrote her, she was also very. Conservative. So it's probably not the type of content that's like the she has reading however data acknowledge it in my little note tour but it was also after he opened the book and it had vaginas on the inside. So like I know how she like actually responded on the inside but her text me was very sweet. So I'll just take it at that. Yeah. Taken at that and you're a grown woman now you talk about Abraham Lincoln. Either way Chris's parents don't even know we put out a book and we will not tell them, and also we like the week.

"sanders" Discussed on Slate's The Gist
"And now the Spiel Bernie. Sanders has exited the stage. He vows to support the presumptive or as I prefer the notional nominee Joe Biden. They're going out on top. He argued in all the ways that matter except for you know getting the most votes the time the moment the situation that we're in now essentially forced his hand. I know that there may be some movement. Who Disagree with this decision. Who would like us? The fight on for the last ballot cast at the Democratic convention. I understand that position but if I see the crisis gripping the nation exacerbated by a president unwilling or unable to provide any kind of credible leadership and the work that needs to be done to protect people in this most desperate hour I cannot in good conscience continue to mount the Campaign. They cannot win. And which would interfere with the important work required of all of us in this difficult hour that by the way that kind of decision making that qualifies as leadership. Yes it does but why not the ultimate mark of leadership in America? Why the question is being asked to Bernie Sanders not win the Democratic nomination for President of the United States one theory is that the establishment closed ranks uniting in an effort to in keeping with the tenor of the Times to fight off the contagion the immune system of the party kicked in and kicked out the viral invader that sought to take it over to some extent that did happen. How nefarious was it well to a sanders supporter extremely to all others? Not at all changed the phrasing. The facts don't become any different but a standard supporter. We'll tell you that. The democratic establishment the media monied interests would never let Sanders Win Abidin back or would phrase it like Democrats at the last possible. Minute rallied around a lifelong Democrat more aligned with their values in doing so back the candidate who they thought could be donald trump. They might also note in fact. Donald Trump thinks that Joe Biden is the candidate who could be donald trump so it was either a return to normalcy or a warning of a revolution. Only it wasn't either or it really was a kind of both. They're both the same thing. And that is the best explanation for what happened. But there have been other explanations and I've been reading them in preparation for this moment that we knew would come in the Washington Post Rachel Mantle wrote a story called the rise and fall of Bernie Sanders a theory. What is that theory the Bernie? Sanders was too comfortable with ideas and society in the abstract and too uncomfortable with emotions and people in the particular she quotes and historian saying are fascinated by the heart. Attack that Bernie Sanders had he goes on to say the fact that he suffered from it makes him into a human being. It really helps. Bernie's case because he readily confesses. He's not one of those backslapping politicians. It's not his brand. He's a little like a stick figure cartoon but heart attack made him seem. Human Mantova goes on to describe an interaction. She witnessed between the Sanders supporter named Ryan. Who talked about his medical expenses? At a rally. In the candidate himself quote he meeting Sanders. Juggles numbers nimbly isn't it seemed quite clear. Sure what to do with emotions. It was perhaps the moment for a hug but Bernie couldn't quite go there. He extended his long arm to Ryan shoulder and simultaneously shook his hand without getting any closer literally. This became an arm's length transaction. So that theory. That's one theory that voters needed. Emotional connection and Bernie didn't give them one at same time. The New York Times was writing up their own. Oh bit how it all came. Apart for Bernie Sanders so in this story the Times describes different power factions within the sanders campaign like there are all one power faction seemed more attuned to sanders needs and wants as a person and the other one wanted to go scorched earth on Joe Biden the ones who resisted going. After Joe Biden viciously led by campaign manager. Fires Shaquir were in keeping with the wishes of Bernie Sanders. And his wife. Jane others in the campaign like adviser Nina Turner and David Sirotta who the Times describes as a pugilist aide who is known for his voluble and combative online persona were more in favour of scorched earth. They didn't want Sandra's just railing against the system. They wanted railing against the Democrat. They regarded as embodying the system. Joe Biden The Times also describes another dynamic quote for months. His political advisors and outside allies have quietly mold a shift in tone the possibility that Mr Sanders might take even modest steps to show skeptical. Democrats that he could unify the party but he has always been disdainful of the art of politics and had to be nudged into wooing even friendly Democratic leaders so Bernie Sanders did not change his tone Bernie Sanders never changed his tone plus Bernie. Sanders never changed. His tactics didn't go more harsh on arrival than he ever has in the past. And let me again remind you of the Post explanation of what went wrong with the sanders campaign quote. Maybe what voters wanted from Sanders after all this time was to be more personable. More relatable more like a normal politician and let's just for good measure throw in a conservative analysis this was Tim Miller talking on the bulwark podcast. Today and his campaign completely believed this false narrative that they put out which was that he was going to expand. The electorate at the Democratic Party had moved into his camp that he didn't need to reach out to the meal liberals that he did not need to condemn Fidel Castro without caveat That he just needed to be pure uncut. Burn and that would be good enough and here we are okay. Let us now. Examine the bill of particulars Bernie. Sanders didn't change his level of interpersonal connection. Bernie Sanders didn't change his tone Bernie. Sanders never changed his belief that a political revolution was coming. It turns out they're all saying that Bernie Sanders lost because he didn't change the reason that the candidate who is a marvel of consistency the candidate who was given credit by even his enemies for being the same person and never changing with the wind. The reason that guy lost was that he never change. Thank you experts. In other words Bernie. Sanders could have had a chance to win this whole thing. Had He simply acted in a way other than the way Bernie Sanders has always and will always act. Look I'm not saying that Bernie. Sanders never had a different message. For different. Audiences never emphasized or toned down certain stances depending on who he was speaking to. It's not like he's not a politician. He is a politician in many ways. A good politician but if you and everyone does give him credit for complete and utter consistency it seems to be a flaw of any post mortem that says what. Feld him was his consistency. This is his essence. It's the bird would never fallen out of the sky. Had He just walked everywhere and the river only went dry because of its wetness in the first place or the opera singer lost her voice because she had tendency to sing so much so loudly so I wouldn't look at Bernie. Sanders is the guy who lost because he wouldn't change. I'd look at him as the guy who almost one because he never changed and for some that was enough but not for enough people. And by the way let's also examine the supposed value in not changing consistency or put another way intransigence. The shame is said to be in being political like INSA- own cutting a deal with Strom Thurmond or allowing Republican members of the Judiciary Committee to aggressively questioned. A witness. You'd rather be treated better or talking about cutting a program that you like in order to achieve a broader goal that you want or agreeing to some cuts in the funding of a program to at least get some funding for the program. We often decry these stances as compromised or God forbid political when they don't work out well or not as well as we'd like but we don't like the concept of someone who changes with the wind and we might say we like complete and total consistency. It turns out there are other things we like more than that like we. We tend to rally behind the leader. Who can moderate stance if need be or can reach out to sometime enemy? Who could comfort us as people rather than a set of policy ideas the policy. Damn well better be perfect to make up for a personal connection and since no policy is perfect we might say. We want the utterly consistent character but in the final analysis. That's the trait. That where I two.

"Let's get back into the show. I mean look feel however you feel about Tulsi Gabbard positions and you can say like Oh. She should have dropped out and she doesn't really have a chance of winning this thing or whatever okay fine but look I mean. This is just wrong to do this to somebody. Like you're you'RE GONNA say. Well this is. This is what it takes to get into the debate. Then she hits that number and then you're just going to change it and the fact that they would treat You know like all the Democrats issues that they claim to care about your treating like a woman of color who you know The was a member of the military. Who served her country? All of these things you see accounts for nothing once. You don't have the approved opinions and in this case the approved opinions is that you have the nerve to question whether the US government should go on these fucking mass-murder campaigns in order to choose who the leader of all these foreign countries are and the fact that she says like a you know. I think we should actually slow it down with those mass murderer campaigns to overthrow governments that we don't like that's enough. That's enough to be like okay. Well now we're gonNA work against you. We're GONNA do everything we can to not allow you to have a voice in this race We're going to you. Know you know slander. You and call you a Russian asset and all this other stuff and ed any decent person No matter what your policy views are should acknowledge that that's an outrage and so it's it's crazy to see that more people aren't All right so the debate was a one one Bernie Sanders Bruce. Joe Biden in many ways. This debate to me marked. Bernie's last chance his last hope I think he needed something big To come out of out of this I think this was a lot of the the sanders people. This was their hope they were like well. Look Joe Biden's very unimpressive to say the least in these things. He does not do a good job and if he has to have fifty percent of the time or something close to that like he's going to have to talk a lot more than he has been talking and he could have a moment where he just blows this whole thing. 'cause no no question about it burning. Need some type of game changer. In order to get back in the driver's seat To have a chance at this nomination and in my opinion he didn't get it. He did not get it. Joe Biden Hino. He's never you're never GONNA say Joe Biden. Did a good job at one of these things but he was you know on a Joe Biden curved. He did a good job. He was adequate. You know he didn't. He was bad but he didn't bury himself And so that's You know was I think. Good enough for Joe Biden and I think that that just blew out the last flickering glimmer of hope that Bernie Sanders could have potentially had to do anything to have any shot at getting this nomination. Bernie. Sanders is already if you listen to him. He's already in rollover and die mode when they start asking him he's GonNa Support The Joe Biden. He's GONNA endorse him. He's going to do all the same shit he did. For Hillary Clinton that's just going to happen It's I think a matter of time. Now before he he gets out and endorses him. So the the debate opened with a big discussion about the corona virus. And it was. I mean it really was something to to watch that you here. You have like this situation where the whole country scared things are. being shutdown. People are really suffering like people all over. The place are really suffering Due to the response to this virus and And that's not to mention the people who are sick and dying from it which thankfully aren't very large numbers as of right now but so you're like okay. Well we have a serious crisis in this country. We need real leadership and you turn on your TV. And you see Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders I mean. That's that's just Veritas. There is America in two thousand twenty four. Yeah man we need some real leadership. We need some people who have it together. All right what do you have for us and go like okay. We got in eighty year old socialist. Who had a attack this year? And he's the guy who's better at his thanks like he's he's the more serious guy On these debate stages and then you have Joe Biden. Who JUST I mean. He really just look sleepy or an older every time. You see him But he did as I said before I thought he hung on. You Know He. He didn't he. Didn't you know. Have the huge fuck up that sanders would have needed in order for him to To to have a game changer and swing momentum back in his favor so they start off talking about the corona virus. Oh by the way. And of course it's It was audience less. It's just in a CNN studio like just in a TV studio instead of being in one of these big you know Like theaters And which is strange in no handshaking and stuff like that so all of it. Was You know a little bit? A little bit bizarre but But they start off talking about the corona virus and man I thought I mean I just thought Bernie Sanders was embarrassingly bad Just he was just terrible As was Biden. But I just want to start with Sanders I but So Bernie Sanders. He really sometimes. He has these moments where he really exposes himself as the one trick pony that he is like really just you know like it's like he's got these talking points. He's got the seven talking points that he likes to stick to. He says the same thing every time you hear him which is fine. I guess I'm not gonNA knock him just for that. Some people could claim that. Tim being consistent but he has no ability to adapt to what the different situation is he just tries to fit everything right back into his initial talking point. So right away you know. They're talking about the corona virus and he's talking about How you know we need Medicare for all and Healthcare should be a human right now. I thought Joe Biden actually had a pretty good a successful line on him when he just pointed out that you know. Italy has a single payer. Healthcare system and their whole country is on shutdown right now so having a single payer healthcare system doesn't seem like it's solved this problem. I mean at least it's not obvious on. Its face that that would have been you know that would have made the difference here and then Bernie Sanders. He continues to just try to fit everything back into his socialist talking points and he says At one point you know if If you're a multimillionaire you know. You're not worried. If you get the corona virus you're going to be you're going to be taken care of and It it's what what I this is. This is the exact situation where that bullshit does not apply like that does not apply here. You could be a billionaire if you have a weakened immune system and you're over sixty five and you get the krona virus. You're in trouble. That's very scary. And so it just wasn't accurate and he keeps going through all of these things that You know the problem. Is that if people get the corona virus They shouldn't you know they shouldn't. It shouldn't cost them anything That you know the problem is that everybody should feel free like you know. If you're basically that the uninsured you know won't be able to go to the hospital to get tests. Because it could cost them a lot of money. It just seemed to me like he was trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. Like it doesn't look if you actually are looking into this situation and what it means. It doesn't seem that any of this is really addressing the corona virus outbreak. Like first of all. It's not even clear. In fact I've read some people who who have straight up said. It's a bad idea that if you think you have the corona virus to go to the hospital right away like for example. Someone like me right if I'm like a thirty six year old guy Who doesn't have any underlying health issues or immune system issues If I were to show signs of the corona virus. Let's say I have symptoms? It's not clear at all and in fact as I said I've read some people who say you absolutely shouldn't go to the hospital because even if you have it you're probably what you'd WanNa do is self isolate yourself. Try to not spread it to anybody else. 'cause you're probably going to beat this thing now. If you go to the hospital you increase the risk that you're going going to spread it first of you're going out in public to get to the hospital then you're going to a hospital where there are many people who are in the much higher risk category of where getting the virus could actually kill them or do permanent damage to them so again. It's it's not really clear that this makes any sense that the issue is people being insured verse uninsured in this particular case So he's just kind of trying to apply his same old talking points to a new situation and it just seemed forced to me and I. It didn't come off good. At least that's how how I took it and I don't think that the problem really is that There's well if you get the corona virus you're not gonNA have to pay for the test or you're not gonNA have to pay for your hospital treatment. That doesn't seem to be the major problem right now. The major problem is people are are losing work because everything is shutdown in order to contain the corona virus which is a very separate problem. That medicare for all ain't going to do anything to address so that you know so now. Biden gets up there and his response which bite him by the way even though I know I know that I said earlier. That Joe Biden. Didn't he didn't have a horrible performance. Degrading Joe Biden curve. But the truth is that Joe Biden. It really is amazing. The Guy can't answer one question without stumbling in some way. I mean he's just you know it in a situation like this. It's not exactly he. I don't think it's very comforting to people who might be looking for a leader to to be able to kind of handle the situation that the guy can't answer one question with that stumbling but what he did than his response to it which I just find. So it's it's the thing that makes me the most infuriated. Well maybe not the most. But it's it's a thing that makes me infuriated about politicians and particularly you know in a presidential election season. I guys let's take a quick second.

"sanders" Discussed on CNN's The Daily DC
"Everyone I'm David. Chalian the CNN political director this is the daily DC. It is yet primary day again. In America. Six dates voting plus the Democrats abroad are going to have their votes counted later this evening. Three hundred and sixty five more delegates at stake in this nomination battle. That is now a two man race between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders Super Tuesday to. I've got two great guests to discuss it with later on. We'll be talking to former Democratic candidate for Governor Michigan and Bernie Sanders surrogate CNN political commentator. But first joining me now to talk about the biggest battle of them all tonight one hundred twenty five delegates at stake in Michigan. Jeff Zeleny CNN senior Washington correspondent who just arrived back from the Wolverine State. How are you sir? Hey David I'm great. Thanks for having me so give me a sense of Of you on the ground. What would Michigan feel like when you were there? Michigan feels like It is obviously the biggest prize. One hundred and twenty five pledged delegates so certainly it is a moment where if Bernie Sanders is going to continue his effort in a robust way. If he's going to make his case this is the place to make voters if if he's going to make the argument here This is the place he'll do in a couple of things talking to voters At the Sanders Rally into grand rapids on Sunday and then again with Biden in Detroit on Monday I'm struck by the degree to which President Trump's name came up in both conversations. There is a sense. Without a doubt he is the big difference from two thousand sixteen. We COMPARE ALLOT BERNIE. Sanders nearly wins Beats Hillary Clinton in two thousand sixteen and that was a turning point? I remember that night very well. I was with the Clinton campaign in Cleveland. Actually in Bernie Sanders. Winning was a huge surprise to them. The difference here is Hillary Clinton is not on the ballot Which you know there were some. Anti Hillary Clinton votes in there of course and Donald Trump is the president so that in mind everyone talked about president. Trump's I think that the sense here US comparing to twenty sixteen. I'm not sure how APP that is because boy there are so many differences and I think those two are key Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Well here's where it's apt one person was on the ballot and both times and it was Bernie Sanders and the test is for him as I see it that. He's got to prove that he can recreate of the coalition that he did create in. Two Thousand Sixteen. He's been underperforming in some key areas in this race thus far and in a state like Michigan or state where he overwhelmed last time around like Washington state. That is Voting today or their mail in ballots are being counted today. This is an opportunity for us to see is is sanders twenty twenty besting sanders. Two Thousand Sixteen or is he underperforming that and if he is what is the argument the Sanders campaign makes to go forward. I think Michigan will be a great test of that. I mean he has to do better than twenty sixteen actually particularly places like Detroit in Wayne County. He has to show that he. Can you know win over More African American voters so important to Michigan But one other thing this is. Why so fast? At presidential campaigns. We never know what they're going to be about at the end. They're constantly evolving And I was struck by that by reading the copy of this morning's Detroit news the actual hard copy you can hear it here as I was getting on the plane and it says market plunge raises recession fears. It's election day so we're having something happening in our environment. The market crash yesterday was extraordinary. The Corona viruses making people who've on edge and anxious. So what effect does that have on this race? We don't know necessarily but Joe Biden has always been seen as sort of a comfort blanket. You know everyone does not love him. I talked to people at the Biden Rally last night. He wasn't their first choice. I talked to someone and Elizabeth. Warren Shirt wore the short to the rally. But they said we're going to vote for Biden because a it's time to wrap up this nominating fight and be they think he's the strongest the too so. I think it's so fascinating here. It's not a popularity contest. Necessarily there'll be a lot of people who were with Joe Biden necessarily at the beginning but there with them now. The question is is it enough to overwhelmed a true hard core ander supporters. And I don't know the answer. Well I mean it's just interesting to hear you say voters talking about bringing this nomination race To a close now here we are in the second Tuesday in March the last two competitive democratic contests two thousand eight and two thousand sixteen when the distance all the way through the June primaries Even if it was sort of known who was going to emerge as the nominee slightly earlier than that the those contests went the distance Back in two thousand four is when we last saw a contest sort of wrapped up this early and I. I'm curious to hear you say that. Are you hearing that a lot from voters that they just want this wrapped up because of the goal of defeating trump and David Watterson similarity to two thousand four here and the president exactly? So that is the different. So that's the question tonight. I don't know the answer. I talked to a lot of voters. All you ready to have this unwrap up and people talk about President trump so he is influencing this campaign in many many ways. If this was an open seat I have no doubt a lot of these democratic. The arrivals would still be in. Probably but so. That's a sense. Are Democrats ready to sort of move on an expert or are they not Michigan will tell us so much about that in Bernie Sanders? He campaigned across. The state added a ton of events to a schedules. He really worked for it The Biden campaign came in essentially at the last minute. The last day So we'll see here but there is just a sense of you. Know President trump hanging over this and I think it probably benefits Joe Biden unless Bernie Sanders shows that he can create this coalition and turn people out that he's been talking about and that Ann Arbor Rally on Sunday night. The pictures of the supporters of just flooding the campus for Bernie Sanders is something that Certainly the Biden campaign had to be paying attention to no no way he could draw that Cavi C. college campuses are sanders country. There's there's little doubt about that and I think hanging over all of this you note. The General Election Michigan's one of those three states with that. Blue Wall crumbled that helped deliver the Oval Office to Donald Trump and In the primary for years ago we were able to see some tea leaves about them and I think we should be looking for that tonight as well what it tells us about. The Michigan electorate of for the fall as well. But I would say. It is hard to overstate the burden. That is on Bernie Sanders tonight. Far More so than Joe Biden Jeff. Zeleny thank you so much for being here really appreciate that. Thank you and joining me now to dig. Even deeper on this critical state of Michigan tonight and how Senator Sanders Mayfair. There is former democratic. Gubernatorial candidate Bernie Sanders surrogate and CNN political commentator Abdul El-Sayed. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you for having me so What do you think of my a thesis? That the burden is bigger on sanders tonight than by them. While I'll tell you coming out of Super Tuesday Biden had a huge Surge of momentum and that's undeniable and I think if if Sanders wants to take any of the momentum back it's going to look like performing well in Michigan and You know the reason. Why is that not? You mean winning winning and I mean I mean showing that he can He can earn votes out of some of the demographics that were part of that Momentum search for for for for Biden And arguments obvious right. And you've got three hundred sixty five delegates up. Michigan is more than a third of them and Michigan is also such a keystone for the electoral calendar in the electoral map in November and You know it's also a microcosm of America right. I always tell folks if you if you want any of the American experience you can have that in Michigan right whether it's Folks In you know the rural parts up up north of you know the mid line of the midden Or in the up of course If you want folks in you know Urban Midwest Industrial Communities in places like Flynn Detroit Or if you want you know suburban Michigan in Oakland County. All of that is there And we lost Michigan as Democrats by ten thousand seven hundred and some votes in November handing the presidency to Donald Trump. And so all eyes are on Michigan. Right now It is such a critical state. It's also a winnable. Stay because it it it it bucks convention because it's so diverse now you mentioned The upper peninsula that was sanders country in the primary Four years ago It has a lot of white working class white non college educated voters up there As we see in lots of pockets in the state of Michigan throughout what I saw on Super Tuesday and looking through all the exit polls is that Sanders isn't performing quite as well with that group. Biden is has a foothold that Hillary Clinton never had with that group it seems and that's keeping Sanders at bay in a lot of the states. So not only does. He need to obviously expand his appeal among African Americans. We that that had been on his to do list all along but I think what binds proving now is also on the sanders. To-do list is reinvigorating. This connection he had with white working class voters. I'll tell you though I I've spent a Lotta time campaigning. In those communities and the reason that a lot of those folks supported Bernie Sanders is because he was speaking to the anxieties that they feel about the challenges they face in their lives Whether it's the fact that for a lot of them access to a well paying job that used to be a given Anywhere in Michigan just forty years ago. isn't quite the case anymore Or because you can't have that job you also have access to basic healthcare or it's protection of the Great Lakes which you know a lot of the economy's on the outer ring in Michigan Not only rely on but depend on A viable and healthy. Great Lakes and so For them a lot of the messaging about Reaching forward and solving those problems I think really resonate. So it's GonNa be interesting to see But you know my experience with with those community suggests that there is something about his message specifically that I think Really resonates and it will be interesting to see what happens tonight. I'll I'll tell you though on the ground I was At those rallies in grand rapids and Ann Arbor and Surge of young people and the excitement of young people's huge I was I voted in Ann Arbor on Monday. Ended the mistake voting on the Monday after the After the rally and You know I thought I was. I was getting early I had gone worked out and then I Went to the polls Early I wait in line for two hours and probably seventy percent of that line was college students. So let me ask you. We've seen this in other places. In terms of prior to an election we've seen Bernie Sanders go and campaign in college campus. Get a huge turnout of people. We've seen the enthusiasm excitement of his crowds. It's not materializing at the polls yet. We just we. We have not seen a dramatic increase in young voter turnout. We just haven't seen it. You are of the mind that we're going to see something different tonight. I am and the reason why is because you know. I think there is something among any group of people that gets stereotyped. That you sort of presume that you guys are already showing up. If you don't show up your of course people are showing up. I just you know I've got class So I think I think a lot of the folks. At least I talked to after the rally Look at them. I'll be like you make sure to vote. You don't show up here night and then and then missed the pulse all right if you had to pick one. Don't come here go there but I'll tell you that they realize that there is an opportunity to right now to to turn the tide to change the conversation and that that means that you've got to show up so let me ask you this. As a die-hard Sanders supported that you are a top tier surrogate For the candidate..

"It doesn't take a subpoena to put out a statement if Ambassador Bolton has to say he could do that. So that's the idea of you. Don't need to call Bolton Talk to let him have his say the man can just like you know talked George Stephanopoulos or something so true. Yes which is true. Yeah so okay. There are two levels here. Right does the Bolton News change what Republican senators are likely to do with regard to allowing witness testimony. I think that's possible Sibal. I'm not sure it's likely but it's possible and it certain certainly likelier that then that it will that it will change what they do with regards to acquitting trump at the end of this right. But I've been saying all along despite events continually proven me wrong that people are like underestimating underestimating. The chances that this doesn't end in acquittal again. I don't think it's likely the final piece of this here is so the likeliest scenario is that president trump is acquitted how much then do senators votes on the final resolution of this acquittal or our removal from office affect their electoral prospects. Going forward like can we look at the Clinton impeachment and say that some senators had to pay a price for how they voted wooded so far. Trump's readings are a little higher than they were pre impeachment process. Even though a peach in sports also gone up. kind of converged little you bet. So all of the economy's been pretty good. There are other kind of factors that factor in their reporting a more partisan move because the Democratic primary and stuff. But yeah look I mean. I don't think we've answered this whether or not their electoral repercussions for how you vote in this. I mean for Clinton like pretty clearly Clinton over performed in in the nineteen ninety eight. I guess it was midterms because people did not like the impeachment trial. That was pretty clear. It's very rare for a party to over to actually gain seats in a mid term. Democrats did and impeachments explanation but that was a very very unpopular. Pitching Pressler's this. One is like mildly popular. And so so it's a bit different. I mean you know support for calling more. Witnesses is very high and so the talking points that hey whatever you thought about impeachment the GOP refused to actually have a fair trial or call witnesses. Like that's a pretty decent talking point. I think for Democrats right so if this is faded to end in acquittal anyway do Democrats actually not want with witnesses. Maybe well okay maybe right because then it just gives them a better baby. I continue to think that enough of them would under the right. Circumstances be willing to throw Biden under under the bus. Reciprocity yeah anything's possible. In this topsy turvy world. We live in by the way by the war. You're GONNA say nothing going to refrain. Don't refrain no rain.

"They're taking and taking very forcefully so I think that's probably coming from from some you. You know informal networks of of that Former White House. But it's interesting. Obviously when you when the name the Obama coalition is it's your name you probably in the Obama coalition being working class whites and young people and Black voters turning out in you know all in concert to elect a democrat. You might have some shall we say bias towards that particular strategy whereas Bernie Sanders would say it's old. It's an old paradigm. You can't think that way anymore. So so I don't know I don't think the democratic establishment has done anything meaningful to combat Bernie. I think you've seen some stories about you know it's it's kind of like the Republican serious concerns and it's like. Is it in the nature of the Democratic Party to do that. In addition into that Democrats have the same problem that Republicans did in two thousand sixteen which is the most effective way. If you're really worried that Bernie Sanders can't win a general election and you want to prevent them from winning the nomination the most effective way would be to rally behind another candidate. We've seen biding climb in in our endorsement tracker a bid but it's not like Mo.. Most Democrats are still sitting on the sidelines. He's gotten quite a few endorsements although they're mostly from like mayor's representatives right and not like Sanders and governor right so I just don't think you've seen any any like any movement on the part of established Democrats to stop Bernie that would that is at all likely to have any effect effect yet. Now if he wins. Iowa Wins New Hampshire. I think you might see a lot of Democrats say okay. The the time is now were rallying behind Biden Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah it depending on the result or. Maybe not like. We kept waiting for that to happen in two thousand Sixteen Publicans and never did let me raise three very important differences which is why I think the sanders trump parallels are overstate. At least in this respect right number one is that sanders is much closer to the democratic mainstream then trump was to what we understood her mainstream to be in twenty sixteen eighteen right. He has been on the left of the party but his agenda isn't that different than other candidates moved to the left. I mean compared to trump right. He's not explicitly criticizing past. GOP nominees. Right it's a matter of degrees but like okay number two. I hope how you can have a debate about that. I have a substantive debate about Euclid. The word you put in there that we understood at the time are important there. I think trump is pretty close to the Republican mainstream but not the way that the establishment perceived it well here. Here's an example. Trump literally flipped some republican positions Russians on like Social Security and Medicare for example. Is Sanders literally flipping a core democratic policy. Poor like free trade he. He flipped the Republicans position on free. Trade I think I guess my argument would be forget like policy positions for a second. Most political actors are like super crass and don't actually give about any of this stuff. Oh and so sure fine and so it's more about. How would this person being the nominee affect me right And I think what we learned about Republicans was they decided. I could get by just fine fine. I wonder if Democrats will conclude the same thing with Bernie. You see a lot of reporting about Oh red. State centers are concerned about Bernie Sanders as a nominee manet. We saw the same reporting with trump in two thousand sixteen but like ultimately you know. That's where north coming from for Biden is actually from or orientates other than like Bloomberg is coming from these swing district representatives Believe me two of the differences right number two is that sanders is not in a strong strong position. As trump was yes. Anders is not leading a national polls by ten points. Trillion opposed by six points. That's big right number. Three is that democratic delegate allocation rules. Give the Party and voters more ability to change their mind late in the embrace. Because you do not have these winner-take-all states and so burning actually has to win a majority or else super delegates coming to play and you have kind of a scenario that of course all the journalists would find really fun but contested convention And so that gives the party like a bit more time than you have with trump. If we all of a sudden he's winner take all states so those are differences. I mean there's also like I don't know right. I think a difference number four is that I think this earlier. I think the party doesn't it doesn't necessarily think there is a slam. Dunk electability argument against him against him yanked they. I think if you talk to the average Democratic Attic Party actor I'm just GonNa Guess Okay and it's matches accounts position in polls. I think it would say if we had to pick between the top four we would prefer on collectability grounds Biden. But after that exactly maybe learning. I think that's honestly what the average if you corner the average establishment person. I think that's what the average person would think but to be clear there isn't a slam dunk electability case against Sanders nor war was the second best in the polls against trump. We wait much like it's worth noting. Well we actually have one more topic to discuss today. We've already imposed almost entire podcast about the current state of the Democratic primary arrays in Iowa and sanders etc.. But let's talk about these new revelations being reported from the draft of John Bolton's book but first today's podcast.
"sanders" Discussed on FiveThirtyEight Politics
"We're back and we've talked about what the picture looks like more nationally and we're starting to get to what things look like on the ground in Iowa the conventional wisdom about How you win Iowa is that you surge late in the game and beat? Expectations is what sanders is doing surging late in the game or is there still kind of room. I'm for things to get mixed up quite a bit when it actually comes down to caucus day as far as Iowa goes. I mean it's a question Gaylon I think the answer is the timing. Might be perfect Bernie or it might not be perfect and we won't really know until a week from today and change from today. Yeah look so there literally is the you know. The kind of scenario of a candidate surging extremely late that has happened before like John Kerry's surge in two thousand four. It happened extremely light. Rick Santorum surge in two thousand twelve happened extremely late so I don't know what the mechanism might be. But you do have after I mean look. Our model still has gigantic confidence. Intervals for Iowa rights as Bernie get somewhere between eight percent and forty two percent of the vote probably right And that is born out of the fact that number one polling in the Caucasus always a little bit rough number two you absolutely can have a meeting area that shifts over over seven days. I think it's amazing by the way that the to national front runners. There's not really active like negative storylines about the either Biden or sanders. Right now I do kind of wonder if the Sanders prickliness not from senator himself but from people around want him makes people afraid to attack him and that does Bernie good. I don't know right when it comes to media narrative additive in the run. Up to the caucuses one thing that happened over the weekend is the Des Moines Register endorsed Elizabeth Warren. We've talked a little bit about whether or not endorsements -dorsements matter in the past but Claire Mike. Do you see this particular endorsement being meaningful given how important Iowa's generally on this podcast we talk about endorsements percents from like party elites elected officials. Here we're talking about in a newspaper endorsement which is similar but but a little different Jeffrey skelly on of Vare elections analysts looked at this site. The des Moines Register's endorsement has at least coincided with on average about a four or five point bump in in when you compare people's polls at the time of the endorsement to how they eventually finished now some years like John Edwards in two thousand four was is pulling out about eleven percent when he got the endorsement and won about thirty three percent of the vote. So it's a huge bump. Was it down to the magister endorsement. Well I don't know other years. There was basically no change right but I think the right way to look at it is what it was just getting which is primaries are so fluid and primary polling is so inexact that you just have to go into it thinking hey anything could still happen here and our forecast reflects is that right so like in this last week it is totally possible. Let's say people in Iowa include Buddha judge doesn't have a chance his support evaporates. Where does that go let say Klobuchar? Who has actually been gaining ground in Iowa? Paul's she's like in the high single digits now people might conclude. Oh actually that she didn't get high enough that I'm not gonNA waste my vote on Klobuchar. I think a lot of a lot of support could go to war right or Biden or anybody the else so I think that's embraces still very much. It's still like any. Including which are any of these people could win. And it wouldn't be that surprising right the clincher global chairman would be surprising because she has to leapfrog that for other people it would not be surprising if she got like third place in which site raced in which case given that. She has a New Hampshire. Endorse Nuke newspaper endorsement. How would that serve lick each? That's an interesting thing. Right IF AMY KLOBUCHAR nobody does decently well in Iowa. Probably isn't going to win but like I don't know win place show. She plays our shows. What does that do for her? Chances in New Hampshire These v the model. Maybe this is a good explain club which are actually does sort of Paul. Okay in New Hampshire specifically. I am skeptical of like like. They're definitely scenarios where it club. Char- let's say. Finish his top three in Iowa the media which has after ignoring her for much of the kind of frankly seems eager for a club but jars surge right I could see her becoming kind of a factor sort of in the way that like Jon. Huntsman was briefly factor. Right after finishing third in New Hampshire. And then you know maybe she also finished third New Hampshire and then you know frankly. I don't think either Nevada or South Carolina look like very good states for her and then she may be wins the Minnesota Primary I'm Eleanor Caucus on Super Tuesday. And then bows out or something right. So for every one zero she actually wins or comes close. There are ten scenarios involving her becoming a factor turbot not actually coming close to winning right and that's the barrier right like if she were consistently. There's a poll that came out last night at twelve or thirteen percent in third third place. Right that's polled. Our is an exception if you consistently had polls like that she really at thirteen percent instead of eight like that actually matters a fair bit at thirteen percent in Iowa Iowa yeah. I don't disagree with any of that. One thing I will say is you could imagine Klobuchar surging in Iowa and it being super isolated just given her regional connections actions to the state I do. It's noteworthy that. She has also climbed on a ton but she has a climbed the tunnel highway. Either you know. She's up to the mid to high single digits in New Hampshire too so maybe that does suggest that if she is able to do something in Iowa she at least has some base to work off of in New Hampshire. We kind of pivoted away from talking about the Des Moines Register endorsement of Warren. But I'm curious Claire. You talked about Santa's closing argument in Iowa. Basically being Birdie Birdie beat trump which is what you see on the signs right. What is warrants closing argument? Warren's closing argument seems to be one that's more of the traditional Democratic Primary Appeal which is I'm the one who best represents your desires for the future and I am the smartest and best equipped to do the job. I think another years that would be a persuasive argument to Democratic primary voters but in a primary where people are obsessed zest with trump. Trump is like this fascinating boogeyman two Democratic primary voters for good reasons. Certainly but there's this idea of how. How will he get under the person's skin right as if we don't we don't we haven't seen for years of evidence for how he does which is like like hell figure out who you are? Go figure out. He'll he'll do something and I think there's also I mean this is the sort of more interesting part to me in some ways. which is voters seem to care are less about ability to do the job probably because of trump right? The idea of there used to be this. This idea that only geniuses this is MEGLOMANIAC or otherwise ran for president. And we're good at the job. Perhaps the public has been disabused of that notion. There's more of a recognition that the presidency residency is and can be bolstered by smart and powerful and influential non actors and therefore you want a person who is ideologically pure from your point of view to occupy the Office Anyway Elizabeth Warren. I think perhaps as we're seeing through the numbers suffers from having quite quite a coherent and traditional appeal to primary voters. She's also making the electability case in the in the last days De Moines Join Register has this headline Elizabeth Warren Closing Argument Iowans Women Win. Quote Unquote I think that's telling two ways one. It shows to some extent that she's been on the defensive on that point as as people have raise electability questions but to at least unless. There's there's a swing winging last week days. It does suggest that declares point the Boogeyman of trump. I think you saw in twenty Democratic voters after the Clinton lost in two thousand sixteen. We're like we are going to rally behind women. Try to elect women to offices. That's important to us. I think you've seen beating trump take the place of that to some extent in twenty twenty where a lot of voters are saying. Electing women is important to us. Beating trump is the first priority already. And that's how we have essentially three men atop the polling chart. I'm curious this is something that the model can tell us. Although it's not public information we can see what would happen if each one of those four candidates were to win. The Iowa caucuses in a nutshell. I don't want to take too much time with this. But how does each of them winning. Winning the Iowa caucuses shift the National Picture Biden winning puts them in a fairly commanding position where he's already had nationally a lot of skepticism. About why this burning fizzle out. Or whatever Bernie winning I think leads to a very competitive race between probably Bernie and Biden in which which depending on Bird Bernie's margin of victory and where Biden finishes either candidate could be kind of the slight favourite Warren. Winning would at this point point likely create a balance because it would be come back story. Her pulling is not as robust as sanders is or Biden's in states after Iowa so that could be a case where you get a bounce becomes very competitive but that really be more more fifty fifty s right Also Sanders might not want to I. I don't think he quit unless he did really badly. Right and Buddhist twinning is kind of your kind of club which are kind of in the same case right. That's your kind of classic they would get a balanced and become a big part of the conversation sation. I tend to think based on looking at scenarios in the model they would not necessarily become the favourite. They might become the second favourite behind depending on. Who did well there? Maybe Biden or something. But it's not that hard to figure out I mean. They won the Silver Lining in Iowa for Warren. He'd much rather be gaining. In the polls in Iowa you'd much rather be in Bernie's position than Moore's position. There is a slight several lining which is because expectations factor into the bounce. That now Bernie's win in Iowa is a little bit more expected that might lead to a smaller bounce. Warren's win would be considered very surprising even though she's not that far behind I think Buddha Chech- win would be considered surprising now even though he is also not that far behind in fact he's really just a couple of points off the front runners so so in some ways like the question is okay is sanders is like surge. Well tiny answer is probably yes but the downside to that is that the conventional wisdom Even polls show basically sanders and Biden tied in Iowa. The conventional wisdom is that Iowa is Bernie's to lose you know if I were burning out with low to like downplay expectations -tations a little bit because that conclusions not really justify based in the polls where he's tied for the lead and you have third and fourth and maybe if plays as candy who still have some chances also so let's wrap on this given how much attention has been focused on sanders now that he's improved his position. In national and state level polling is the Democratic Cavalry Establishment Cavalry coming out against him or are they still choosing to remains someone on the sidelines in this primary. Well great question. There's been rumblings for quite a while that Barack Obama is not like Bernie Sanders. Anderson does not want him to win the Democratic primary Hillary Clinton obviously stirred up a lot of noise last week when she basically said no one likes him and doesn't want to work with him which is obviously lots of voters do actually like him. I think she's more referring to I think interpret that she was referring to the establishment. But you know there's a political piece that quoted for Instance Obama's twenty twelve campaign spokesman Ben the bolts basically saying he's gotta be stopped now. Now Obama World people did forcefully. Push back on a a piece last week. That sort of said Obama himself has said that he doesn't want to be around. I think the Obama people are really protective of Obama's sort of role as he's the one president in this trump Obama tussle who's actually maintaining his dignity cares about the constitution about the sort of the higher statesmanlike duties. And he's not gonNA put a thumb on the scale for anyone no matter how he feels. Personally I don't know if that's true but that's certainly the public line..
"sanders" Discussed on FiveThirtyEight Politics
"Parring relationships improved or worsened over the four years. What would you say improved? I think it's gone through phases. Yeah I mean I think it's I feel like listeners. Get get a weird impression but we really like each other we do. We actually sort of hang out and enjoy joyous sometimes. Yeah I think that was super convince your according to the CDC here are the milestones four year old should reach. Okay cooperates with other children. Nope now we'd have reached. That often can't tell what's real and what's make believe true for us. Know some basic rules of grammar hammer such as correctly using he and she you do that. Tell stories we do that. I think we're maybe we're a little behind for four year old but but we're we're getting there. I listened to like ten minutes of the first episode. We ever recorded. y'All how was it. It's fine. We have improved improved. Yeah Yeah Yeah. I think like recent additions to the podcast have really solidified it. Take it from. I will say B. Minus C.. Plus to to a a it used to take me a lot longer to at it. The podcast Oh interesting people have Stockholm Syndrome. People have gotten better at speaking. I think just just in general not using filler words or being concise and to the point in expressing our points. Sometimes well well. That was fun. Happy Birthday everybody anyway. According to the five thirty Democratic Primary Forecast Sanders odds of winning the majority of delegates increased from twenty two percent on Friday just three days ago to twenty eight percent today on Monday. Nate what's behind Sandra's surge beyond the top level odd. Does it clear that it's more based on early state level polls or national polls. It's both which is kind of what you'd expect. This is kind of a a medium speed medium-sized surge right. It's not kind of sudden like the Comma Harrison Jeff. The debate it hasn't been as prolonged longed as the now reverse frankly Elizabeth Warren surge of the summer and fall. But it's well timed. What is behind it? I suspect part of it. It is that believe it or not there are actually some degree of lanes and the primary and I think that probably some people who are on the fence between Sanders and more in our coming back to Sanders unders. I also suspect that there are undecided. Voters and there are voter votes for minor candidates right who might drop out of the race or might be at one or two percent right in some of those probably go to to sanders. It does not really seem becoming at Biden's expense. I mean if you look at our polling average demand that Biden is like always in exactly twenty seven percent and he's an exactly twenty seven or twenty seven point one or something as a recording. This late morning. You know if you WANNA get more complicated. Probably some conflicting dynamics going on right where Buddha Chech- has fallen a bit maybe his supporters go to war but then some warrant splurge go into Bernie right. Maybe by we'd actually gaining and not holding steady if not for this actual Bloomberg gains gains in the pulse of they're always different dynamics one of the things like this kind of mean going around or narrative going around that Hey Bernie has always been in. This position has been ignored. That's not true. This actual five or six point surgery had he's had is pretty important because being fifteen percent nationally. Which is where Warren is? At least our model is a much worse position not hopeless for her but like much worse than being at twenty one percent. We're Bernie is. Is it accurate to say this sanders surge such as it is. It's Kinda felt like it's happened in two stages where there was. I don't know it was like a month ago month and a half ago where we were writing on the site and talking about on this podcast. Hey Bernie Sanders actually in pretty decent position here and is the second most likely to win the nomination and then more recently. You've had kind of another little surge where he's where there is kind of like a few weeks ago or a month ago like this change in perception exactly that was people kind of finally notice that Oh okay well. Warren has slipped into third place. That happen in our polling average around Thanksgiving that sanders overtook warrant for second place but more Warren Warren falling than him gaining right and people are like okay. Well there were all these kind of magic scenarios where Duval Patrick will get inner Bloomberg will get in which he did. I guess right or something will happen. Club HR will surge or something and none of that really happens people. I kind of like okay. Well if Biden doesn't win it and by the another cases somebody who's also oddly kind of ignored for being in a position in the polls. Then maybe Bernie will actually either win or be the main rival but then he has actually gained recently recently and those are important. Gained just like you can't win any seats with fifteen percent of the vote. You can't win. Say Twenty percent of the vote. You know the one slightly sour note for Sanders is that I'd say his urge is the most ambiguous in Iowa and let's talk a little bit more about the specific state of the race in Iowa in a minute but first we can look at all these polls and see that sanders is doing better obviously the polls are not themselves going to tell us why exactly that's happening. What are some theories on cleared? You have an idea of what's going on here for voters. It's the conflict between him and Warren or something else. I think what's interesting to watch with Sanders in Iowa is the actual pitch giving voters was which is a general election. Pitch Right he is saying basically like the same thing on the stump that his his controversial talking points to door knockers. That started the whole worn feud set which is thirty. Sanders brings trump voter types. CBS Back to the Democratic Party. More than any other candidate will and I think it's an interesting pitch. Now you'll see tons of Obama people campaign gene types from the Obama era floating around and saying we got to cut this off at the legs sanders cannot win the primary. He is not a good general election candidate. You're seeing obviously newspaper. Endorsements go to more moderate candidates but I think that the argument that Elizabeth Warren is perhaps Troubled from the we use it with with all the frothiness that entails Elizabeth. Warren has been stuck with the electability thing in part because she is a woman I think and in part because she's maybe trying to ride the line a little bit more about how liberal positions are. And how doable they are people. Just kind of like the idea that sanders has been this one thing the entire time and I think there's some gut instinct from people where they say I don't know maybe the point about the general election thing right and I think it has a little bit to do with war and falling and sanders kind of having a good past month there so I mean I think he was pretty good on the blast debate our voters in debate actually like Warren's performance but didn't seem to translate into. I mean she's not had a good general election. Polls if you look at national Paul's like just to keep this super simple sanders is increase has coincided with a slight Warren downtick and a gradual Buddha. The judge downslope and just kind of at a glance that makes some amount of sense to me that he would pick up that his Buddha judge voters orders. Well why would people vote for. I mean if you look at the overlaps people say who are you. Considering Buddha Chech- Sanders is one of the least overlapping lapping. But you're t you're talking about a gain of a few percentage points here so like you know what I mean. It's not like it takes all that many voters to increase it but like yeah why. Why would someone vote for Buddha judge right? He's thirty seven year old mayor of a small town. I think one of the big reasons people were considering him and and are considering them is they think he's electable. They think here's a fresh face will look good on a debate stage against trump and so I wonder if some of those people people are now looking at sanders as well. Actually maybe counterintuitive but the ideology diverse second sanders is actually the electable candidate. He can put some of these places. In the Midwest excites young people excite. Young people can win over some of those obama-trump boaters etc etc.. One thing that you mentioned that I wanted to come back back to. Is this idea that some of the minor candidates could be losing support that ultimately goes to sanders. I've heard people talk about that earlier. In the race like Tulsi Gabbard or Andrew Andrew Yang if their support would eventually go to sanders. Is there any actual evidence of that in the polls at this point so Yang is actually urging the Yang surge bridge as actually gained. He's actually ahead of the much. More heralded amy. Klobuchar international polling average is like four percent so young out of the the answer is no basically you know but there are a lot of other candidates right. There were formerly Kamala Harris and and Cory Booker and Julia Castro Right And and they didn't do that well but they collectively had you know seven or eight percent of the vote. You have undecided vote that I think was around twelve or thirteen percent right. I mean Mike. It's telling earlier air which is like important emphasize right. We're not talking about an earth. shatteringly large change and absolute terms right. Sanders has gone from MM fifteen or sixteen percent international polling average as kind of the mid to late summer to eighteen percent as of December two twenty one percent. Now Right. That's not like like a earth shatteringly large change in absolute terms. It just happens to be pretty important just because the way the math works you go from fifteen to twenty one as I said like though that's important kind of inflection point and so it's not like we're talking about him. Having made enormous pickups are just important and you know and there are these kind of loads floating around on that that gives you opportunities to gain ground. Maybe that's why the surge looks more dramatic if you're looking at the forecast than if you're just looking at national polling. Well it's not you've been that dramatic in the forecast. I mean it's meaningful but it's like his chances have gone up what four or five percentage points. I mean by the way one of the about three days one. The thing about the forecast is that we're nearing actual voting right so if this were a week a week if this were the summer not exactly a week if this were a weak point if this was the summer then there'd be recent say okay. Well that's nice but like there are probably getting more shifts in the race right so it's the timing of it that matters because yeah I mean you could kind of say okay. Nothing's really changed the block rights and polls have him downs and bills have him up but like gaining a few points at this time is pretty nice. Lead time for Bernie. I don't mean to make that implies though like he's just been lucky. I mean maybe it. Is You know the fact that he he has a lot of money. He has very busy ethic supporters. I mean I still think the pivotal moment in his whole campaign is the moment when Warren Surges. She's kind of declared a eight National Front runner or co front runner in mid October. And then neither the left nor the kind of moderates really embrace her right because you can imagine either one of those things having happened you can imagine the left having said I. We have things we like about burning things about Warren but Warren is almost position where she can be Biden and Gosh now spoke to her. She's going to be nominated right. Didn't happen in fact sanders got like some indoor spins from. AFC and the squad the Sanders supporters. who were some of the most vocal people were became pretty antiwar in right so that happened at the same aim time the establishment terrified of nominating Warren Mayor p kind of hitter from the right kind of worked right and so she really got squeezed and Sanders hasn't actually gotten that much attacks don't necessarily stick to him in part like you.

"All right thanks again to lacey rose of the Hollywood reporter Backyard Studio with my two panelists question for you both Tom Vanessa. Are we ever go over. Two Thousand Sixteen. I don't think so. I really don't think all right because it is the closest country has ever come to potentially electing a woman. I'm and it's going to be this conversation that we keep coming back to. In terms of the role that gender does play in politics and the way that that political figures who happen to be women are perceived reported on and talked about a little surprising is the conflict between Bernie Ernie and Hillary still burn so bright for years later but the conflict between Hillary and Obama in two thousand eight was actually way more intense mike go going back and forth two thousand eight primary Overa- and they got over it so maybe winning just heals wounds I would say yes when you get to be Secretary of state.

I've never clapped with. I kind of liked that effects. I'M GONNA keep it up in the future. Yeah Yeah right you both have played before what is yours record on. WHO said that? There's no I I one once. I'd take care. grigsby bates bb well. This is very simple. You know how it goes. I share a quote from the week. You gotTa tell me who said it or guess what story Laurie. I'm talking about. The winner gets absolutely nothing. I quote here we go in the ultimate selfless act. He sacrificed himself to save his friends. Iran's when they needed him most famous mascot killed off this week the Messinger. That's really more the they can't kill the Messenger as a person I have no idea. It's Mr Pena Yes yes so let me explain so weird so that quote comes from the Mr Peanut twitter account that account announced this week that Mr Peanut the mascot for planters peanuts was killed off the tee off. Mr Pena let happened that he loses monocle then like something racing was all right so fun fact. Mr Subpoena is one hundred and four or was dead now But he's in a super bowl commercial in which he falls to his death trying to save other people The commercial features Mr Peanut and Matt Walsh and Wesley Snipes taking a road trip in the nut. Mobile they're singing. I just died in your arms when an animal on the road. It makes an mobile swerve. They're all hanging on for dear life in. Mr Peanut makes the ultimate sacrifice. Volunteers death in a fiery top nut bull appeal mobile. And so this is supposed to be an ad in the super bowl but because that's jump the shark. We saw the ad this week. Oh I totally I really missed the we have so many questions. Who is the friend that he C- he saves? Mister Snipes Duh. Okay Hey let me know Matt whilst lives lives also if you think about Messina and what he represents it's very sick and twisted. He is a rich peanut who encourages other folks to eat other poor peanuts that cannibalism these accountable. All Right Tom. You've got a point next quote. Oh tell me where this story comes from wear. This story is don't be surprised. If you see a guavas falling from the trees tonight. Florida south Florida as a news person. I gotTa tell you. The headline from Florida never disappoint. The thing is this is the recurring headline happens. Comes out so this quoque. I'M A tweet from the Miami Office of the National Weather Service. They were explaining. Basically during this cold spell. Happening in Miami sometimes iguanas bodies execute dormant in the winter and the cold So they can like preserve themselves but they go limp and dormant like fall out of the tree he sometimes because he's Guana the large. You gotta be careful ban. They can hurt you. Cats iguanas. I I gotta take a point away for that point. Colesville is like the thirties and forties for Miami which is cold for Miami and cold for the IGUANAS. They do they survive. Yeah I mean will you survive if Guana lands on your face. How heavy are these owners? Is Florida supersize doing it to save. It was the snipes crash all right. I think the game is tied. It is yes this contract final. Oh quote it's going to be hard for you all but it's going to be worth it. It is enjoy your mountain. Put your arch into it. Don't go bear. Oh I know this this. What was it almost pitched this story here? Mount the State of Utah. which apparently they wanted to put out prophylactics yes so the State of Utah was going to start distributing free condoms to help with STD's I wanNA pregnancies etc But after the new slogans were determined for the Condom wrappers the Governor of Utah said. They're a little bit too risque and he does not approve of sexual innuendo and he had the condoms recalled so the Salt Lake Tribune says quotes the Utah Department of Health will destroy all packaging with provocative Utah themed messages on thousands of condoms. It has been able to retrieve from partner agencies. Where are the ones that turned down o even crazier easier through multiple levels of approval? I mean you don't actually print out plastic packages and then say in many people signed off. People were like that's cool. That's also you're already saying. They're risky businesses. Okay by giving out condoms right right. It's a little bit like innuendo right. Like what do you think is done with condoms. Yes yes anyways I think Vanessa she won. That was for the IGUANAS for the y'all's for all of it. Congratulations Crotts. Yes how do you feel like like a champion champion that you know my daily reminders.

"sanders" Discussed on It's Been a Minute with Sam Sanders
"Are here In the fashion of this Newsweek you both have been working on stories besides impeachment. But I'M GONNA start this episode by making the both talk about with me at least for minute impeachment. It's here it's happening. But trial began in the Senate this week thoughts. Well I'm making a little bit of a of a a face on my end because it does seem to be absorbing absolutely everything and yet anytime I turn up the volume on the TV on my desk. It feels like I'm having deja Vu and it's the exact same thing I heard. Yes six months ago nearly as the spin happening. It feels like it's been happening. That's that's the thing right. It's such a weird feeling because when you think about the way the history books talk about impeachment the process for Nixon or then Clinton you think it's a once in a lifetime event time stops everyone's paying attention but when you're actually living through it kind of life goes on and a lot of people aren't paying paying that much attention yeah. It is a long process and I think why a lot of Americans feel this way even those of us paid to watch the news because the GOP and the Democrats rats have already said how they're going to vote no matter what so. It feels like we're watching a movie in which we already know how the movie ends right. There's only a few question marks which are really really at the margins which are will there be any live witnesses or even turn the volume up and then we'll a few. Moderate Republican can senators possibly vote to remove and convict jet president trump. But even if they do it is so unlikely that there'll be sixty seven total title votes to remove President Trump's so it kind of feels like you know I don't want to be too cynical but it does feel like we know the outcome. We're GONNA move to some other topics I want us to discuss to other big stores that have been in the news. But we've kind of forgotten about because of impeachment with that we're going to start the show as we always do asking. My panelists describe their week of news and only three words Vanessa. You'RE GONNA go first. What are your three words about a story that has not impeachment? My three words are short term. Terme memory okay and the reason that I bring this up. Obviously as we're talking about impeachment it does seem to have sort of blotted out the rest of the news world while we obviously know that there are tons of other news stories developing and so this week I actually worked on a story that stems back to twenty fourteen the flint water contamination in crisis story. So there was a big legal development this week in a weird way it sort of new news. That didn't happen. That made the news explain so the. The Supreme Court decided this week not to here not to take up too appeals cases that go back to flint and in doing that they have opened up the pathway. Hey for the people of Flint which is like tens of thousands of people to pursue these civil class action lawsuits against city officials and state officials. And so the question with these two cases that the court refused to hear was whether or not state and local officials involved in the flint water crisis could be held liable. Go for it right. Yes so they had argued and have been arguing for years that they were not responsible they were not personally liable and so they should not be personally held accountable. All the decision by the lower courts so far has been actually. Yeah you hand right and one of the people involved is governor. Rick Snyder who was personally only named in the class action lawsuit and so a lower court had initially said yeah. No you can't sue him and then another court said yes you can. And then the supreme in court said we're going to let that decision stand by not by not taking a position and not taking up the case they're essentially leading. It's down and it's it's important to point out here how how much lower courts have shown that officials did know. There was a crisis and just try to cover it up for instance this governor Snyder while he was telling the public apparently the water's fine. The water's fine at his work at his office. They were only drinking bottled water. It's one of the things that I read this week and I had sort of forgotten about it because again again this all started in two thousand fourteen when I read it in the documents again I was sort of equally surprised it was all over again. I sort of lived it in my body all over again as I was reading through through the pages but the governor you know almost immediately well let me back up a little bit. What happened in two thousand fourteen is the city of flint was like hey we're in financial chill dire straits it was after the financial crisis? And they're like let's save some money so they decided to switch the water source from the Detroit Department of water to the Flint River. So now what's coming out of. The TAP is water from the Flint River which hadn't happened for decades right and they didn't do the proper testing they didn't do the proper treatment of all the pipes which happened to be lead pipes. I took the city and so almost immediately people started calling and saying my water is Brown. Mel's terrible taste terrible. I feel ill and how. Oh how long from the first calls and emails about this to win. The government finally said there's a problem eighteen months so as someone who watched this story in Washington D front-page news for a while we all did does it seem weird or strange to see the whole country. Kind of just forget about this thing which is still bill going on. Yeah I think people you know the news business tends to focus on win. There is a big moment of crisis and then we tend to move on very quickly the process process of people who were affected by this seeking some sort of compensation or justice in their minds that takes years and in case and some of the effects that these young kids will have from drinking. This water is going to be their whole life. Our whole lives right now. Lead poisoning affects most acutely kids. Yeah and and acute a affects their brain development and there's all sorts of stories we're hearing anecdotal stories of kids with developmental delays other issues. That are they believe are results of this poor water and You know that will last their whole life lifetime news story. Yeah exactly this story will never ever go away for them as the world. Some tension in so like Vanessa also the length of the flint water crisis points to the fact that like there are more of these crises in other places. Well exactly so this is why we should not have these short term memories so flint is not the only study with lead pipes their lead pipes all over the country small cities in big cities and rural areas in urban areas. And so this this essentially sparked some momento. I'm to replace those lead pipes throughout the country in the mid West alone. There are one hundred eighty cities right.

"We are joined by my colleagues Dan Hannigan Hello Dan how you doing Paul and Jason Willeke Jason. Thanks so so the news this morning is that Bernie Sanders was having some chest pains and Justice Comfort on Tuesday at a campaign event his AH campaign adviser put out a statement saying that he was found to have a blockage in one artery in two stents were successfully in inserted and he is conversing and in Good Spirit's so obviously that's good news. Everyone wishes Mr Sanders speedy recovery but Dan. How do you suppose that Democratic primary voters are going to react to this this news well. I think they're going to be Hurley shocked by it. the EX. I mean look like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren were just going to go down to the wire fighting over the progressive vote some of US had begun to talk about the likelihood of going to the Democratic convention invention in Milwaukee next summer and not getting a nominee on the first vote and then having this fascinating Horse Trading Guam amongst amongst the progressives over whether it was going to be Bernie or Elizabeth Warren and now all of a sudden sanders has developed what should be regarded as is a pretty significant health problem especially at his age. you know presidential campaigning as it's constituted today is an absolute league grueling activity and one wonder was sort of astonished to see someone like Bernie Sanders just out there for a second time campaigning with this intensity city but now I think Democratic voters going to have to step back and come to grips with the possibility that Bernie Sanders is going to have to reconsider. I mean he's gotTa. I don't think about his health and they've got to think about whether sanders is a long term viable candidate and weather where their their boats may go and most likely my guess would be they go to Elizabeth Warren. I can't see this vote dividing up too much between any of the other also ran candidates and I certainly do not see Bernie Sanders voters migrating to Joe Biden. I think that's right and what's what's notable. Here is how level hole in steady the sanders campaign has been so far so for all the talk about Elizabeth Warren's rise which is real in recent weeks if you look at the real clear politics average. Bernie me is still steady in about eighteen percent of the vote. He announced that he raised twenty five million dollars in the third quarter. which is the highest figure that we've seen so far that we still still don't have Warren's numbers or Biden's numbers? I mean Jason. Do you agree with that assessment. That that warrant is probably the the best position to pick up. All those voters is if they start to flee yeah. I mean the conversation about eight in the Democratic primary head focused on Joe Biden before because there was a sense the twenty twenty two thousand sixteen. Joe Biden was more vigorous than the twenty twenty Joe Biden and you really notice it with Bernie though the way he is on the trail. today is more or less. It's the same as as he was in two thousand sixteen. People thought he has a lot of vigor. He has a lot of energy. You know he's not making gaffes left and right. There's nothing to worry about so this. UPENN's that narrative and it makes the age question focus on Bernie. I agree that based on what we know now. It's a lot easier to see Elizabeth Warren getting the Bernie voters but one thing we've seen is that since twenty sixteen his voters are some of them are basically Bernier bust. I mean they are so loyal to Bernie Sanders. They're not even they think anyone else's too this off. They don't trust any other candidate so while I think Elizabeth Warren is the most likely single getter of of of Bernie voters if he were to leave the race. I also think they might look elsewhere because some of them are just so wedded to this one candidate. I'd like to promote propose another possible all scenario here. you know. Bernie Sanders look back four years ago. Two Thousand Sixteen was then a literally unknown figure or senator from Vermont completely obscure he got into the race became a major player Challenge Hillary Clinton for the nomination surfaced all of these progressive left-wing voters in the Democratic Party and I think at this point Bernie has already established himself as a historic figure figure he will be remembered and it's not beyond me imagining that Bernie Sanders would sort of decide at this point that he has taken his causing ause and campaign as far as he can drop out and an automatically makes him a kingmaker if he were to throw his votes to Elizabeth Warren. I mean that would so up end this race with Bernie Sanders being the guy who made the call I think he could step back and be satisfied that he had achieved all that he could have hoped for. That's an interesting possible possibility another thing that I have have wondered whether whether this increased focus on health also also is going to sort of bring down Joe Biden I mean there has been some talk mostly very quietly at least from the candidates themselves about whether Joe Biden's health is up to the task and I wonder whether this news even though it's about Bernie doesn't really help Biden one thing that was notable last month. was former president. Jimmy Carter was speaking in and he said you know if I were just eighty years old if I were fifteen years younger. I don't believe I could undertake the duties that I experienced. When I was president. you have to be very very flexible with your mind. You have to be able to go from one subject to another concentrate on each one adequately. I'm so I wonder whether this this focus on health is going to hurt by them in a similar way. I'm Jason and what do you make of that. I think that's true I mean I think it's inevitable that at the next democratic debate some of these age questions asked there was some question before about about how Biden would handle that kind of question could he pull a Ronald Reagan and sort of make light of it. I think it yes sort of everything is coming up. Warren between the between being the focus on corruption that's resulting from the Ukraine saga and now the focus on age with the Bernie Saga. Everything is sort of flipping in Miss Warren's favor just do it brings up a point again that Jason mentioned earlier. Maybe this'll be a wakeup call for Democratic voters voters in general I mean the reality is you've got all these. He's quote unquote old people running at the head of the pack for the presidential nomination and it could be that maybe this will make people step back and say say maybe we ought to think about Mayor Pete or Comma Harris or cory booker because the reality is that when you get to be seventy eight seventy seven years old you do start to lose slow down. You lose a step. If that weren't true every professional athlete out there would never stop playing saying and the reality is it gets to you eventually. Maybe voters all how take that into consideration well and I was gonNA ask about that. What's what's going on here. The broader context so if if you look at the democratic side the three leading candidates the only candidates in double digits are Joe Biden who turns seventy seven next month Bernie who seventy eight turned last month Elizabeth Warren Seventy president trump of course seventy-three Nancy Pelosi Speaker of the House the seventy-nine Mitch McConnell the Senate Majority Leader Seventy seven just for a little little bit of context the the previously the oldest president was Ronald Reagan was inaugurated at sixty nine so dan what what's going on here. That's creating this dynamic well. I think a lot of it is is the media has always been the case. These these people are the individuals who are senior figures figures like Mitch McConnell Nancy Pelosi they hold onto these positions and the media writes about them all the time simply by the fact that they are so prominent and it's difficult for people who aren't in the media spotlight to breakthrough. We've seen that with so many of these other the Democratic candidates take someone like representative Tim Ryan of Ohio. I mean here's a young vigorous smart guy. you know. I personally think if he were at the candidate running against trump he would give them a run for his money but it's so hard for individuals like Tim Ryan are John Delaney to break through these days and the system just defaults to individuals who been around for a long time then there's a there's an irony on the democratic side because we keep hearing about how the the democratic electorate is young and and diverse and the and the Republican electorate is aging and becoming irrelevant and yet the leadership of these democratic the people blue really hold democratic political power tend to be you know quite old and really able to just tighten their grip on these positions you know even even the People Supporting Bernie are the people who want to overthrow the democratic power structure and they've thrown their lot behind obviously a man in his late seventies yeah just to just to throw one more your data point in there so the Pew Research Center. I thought this was interesting. Projects that in the twenty in two thousand twenty twenty three percent of the electorate will be sixty five or or older which is high share since at least nineteen seventy. I mean maybe that is is part of the dynamic to you've got to think about if since older people vote in higher percentages they're even a bigger percentage of people who actually cast ballots of final irony though kyle this reporting the past ask few days was that Bernie Sanders had to do more to increase his support among older voters interesting so we're talking about.
"sanders" Discussed on Part of the Problem
"Article caught my eye there was an article at the new republic and the title is bernie sanders is not the left all right it's an article by sarah jones it's from last week over at the new republic so the title was bernie sanders is not the left his refusal to endorse ices abolition is the latest evidence that he's not the politician that many believe him to be so isn't that just kind of like typical left wing democratic politics where a position now that wasn't even an issue it was it wasn't even a thing six months ago but now if you're not on board with it you're not you're not really the politician that many believe you debate again it's it's like i said with the gay marriage thing if a democrat were were to run today with what obama's position on gay marriage was in two thousand eight two thousand nine two thousand ten if they were to run with that you're like your fascist basically that that's pretty crazy i mean it's pretty crazy that it's the intend years a position that was you know you were the hope and change and yes we can candidate and now you're literally hitler i don't know to me that seems like a pretty stark contrast and so it's it's interesting to try to follow this stuff and see where exactly the party's going and this is why a lot of people have made the observation that the left eats the left and anyway i actually think there's there's a big opportunity in there because more and more people once you're once the tool is that basically you're a fascist if you don't agree with us and more and more people start to be called the fascist they they don't like that and of course everyone particularly there's no better example than you know the the wing of the left that's known as like the social justice warriors but they set up a standard and this is true with more mainstream leftist as well but they set up a standard that like no one can actually live by and then then it's pretty difficult is pretty difficult for anybody to actually rise up to be a hero in in those conditions i mean you think about it with the metoo moment where they set up the standard that basically like if you've ever made a woman uncomfortable you're you're a predator and okay i mean look if the standard is something reasonable like have you ever you know groped a woman or have you ever like forced a woman to do something that she was saying she didn't wanna do or something like that then okay lots of guys can be good guys like well i've never done that you've never done that okay we're good guys but if the standard is you've ever made a woman uncomfortable or you've ever you know like some of these terms that they'll use like like sexual misconduct or something like that well you'll you'll be hard pressed to find a guy who's ever been single a straight guy who's ever been single who hasn't at least at some point maybe perhaps made a woman uncomfortable i mean i've had women make me uncomfortable many times in my life of course we're not like a you know straight men aren't like a a group that has victim status so no one cares about that but of course it's just it's this impossible standard and this is why you know more and more people if they continue this way are going to end up abandoning the left which i think would be a very good thing okay so here's the article once again the title bernie sanders is not the left his refusal to endorse ices abolition is the latest evidence that he's not the politician many believe him to be when cnn's jake tapper f asked bernie sanders on sunday if he wants to abolish the immigration and customs enforcement agency the senator was uncharacteristically vague quote i think that what we need is to create policies which deal with immigration in a rational way and a rational way is not locking children up in detention centers or separating them from their mothers what we need is trump to sit down with members of congress and work on a rational program which deals with the excuse me which deals with this serious issue so okay the only thing.
