"Mike gallagher. Maranda devine weighs in on the general milley thing in the new york post and so honestly if you're radio interviews generals who say well. It's not that big a deal. I mean generals talked to generals all the time you know. I talked yesterday about nancy. Pelosi is involved and that's what she dives into let me quote from her article. I mean journal. Mark milley became so deranged that he cast himself allegedly as the hero of a seven days in may style fever dream in only he could save the nation from trump trump launching nuclear war with china to stay in office. It's an insane scenario. Left wing equivalent of the most far-fetched cunanan conspiracies. She writes but this is what is claimed in. The woodward cost of book entitled peril show alarmed was the tightly wound. General about what he imagined. Trump might do that. He made secret calls his counterpart in china. Promising to warn them if the president ordered an attack. It's clear that milly or people authorized by him leaked details of his delusional daring due to a number of authors. Because he's proud of his actions. His lack of shane bodes ill for the country if he remains the nation's highest ranking military officer as chairman of the joint chiefs of staff the botched withdrawal of troops from afghanistan over which he presided was bad enough. She writes what's next and the most disturbing part she writes of the mili- story is nancy. Pelosi's malign influence. The general seem to treat her as his commander in chief pelosi who was engaged in a blood feud with trump that sent her batty manipulated and bullied. Milly a transcript of a call with pelosi two days after the january six capital riot obtained by the payroll authors has her ranting at about trump's access to nuclear weapons pelosi said if they couldn't even stop him from an assault on the capital who even knows what else he may do and is there anybody in charge of the white house who is doing anything but kissing his fat but all over this.

Guess there's it's an e packed in in theory and is a security pact. We have a situation where australia will be making new submarines with health in the us. Osa the caper in the us technology in us intelligence. And it has created a diplomatic steph or a number of reasons one. Because obviously you have the five is and this appears to be a breakway from the fives. Some of the countries have in it meeting on coming up with the rain plan. And i think that is seeing even though it's not specifically as a response to china and this is a group trying to tackle they think will be chinese aggression in this area. I think that you use saying the allies or the allies of the uk. Australia and the us. I'm unhappy because you have a situation. Where france had been quite a public their annoyance over this land because a french company had previously had a contract to let australia on submarines and that has now gone in favor of lectern with the us.

Run around concern. The donald trump was going to engage in some kind of rogue activity or some kind of act of war to sorta lash out. This never happened. Just it's just patently absurd and so the entire credit for all of this assessment that woodward is now laid out in his book. We'll see what turns out but make no mistake about it. During that entire time the entire time. I served all four years. We conducted orally foreign policy. We had national security team. That was working hard to make sure we make the best decisions.

"white house" Discussed on The Daily
"Current with all this information Cecilia at the end of the day. Back to your original analysis that both sides are right and both sides are kind of wrong here the white house and facebook who seems to be more right when we think about the question of facebook. Social media vaccine hesitancy. Well i think the evidence is clear to anyone who has social media that misinformation exists. It's so ubiquitous. Definitely there have been efforts to take it down. I also think michael. It's really important to understand that. This is not just social media that so much misinformation about corona virus. Vaccines are also being spouted across cable television and other media platforms so there's a whole ecosystem to contend with but there's plenty of blame to go around among the social media platforms and i think for facebook which has by far the biggest scale much bigger than twitter. It is a place that rightfully should be a focus because if anybody has the resources to fight this it's a company like facebook with one trillion dollar valuation and eighty five billion dollars in revenue. And that have been fighting this and have experts on staff for years. There's a very familiar ring to everything you just said which is facebook and scale means that it has a responsibility to deal with misinformation. It felt like we had that same conversation. When it came to russia's disinformation campaign in two thousand sixteen using facebook or president trump spreading misinformation on facebook around the two thousand twenty election. And then of course facebook's role in the january six riot at the capital and. I wonder if it's right to see vaccine misinformation as of a piece with those previous episodes or if based on the fact that facebook has changed since two thousand sixteen and is being more proactive. And all the ways you just described that it's possible that history makes facebook an easy target for the white house when it comes to vaccines in a way. That may not be quite fair. I mean this is absolutely part of a pattern that existed at facebook for years. But what's different here. Michael is that kobe nineteen and efforts to end the pandemic through these vaccines have been a absolute priority. Not just for the government but also from within facebook mark zuckerberg has says this is absolutely one of his top priorities and they have stricter rules on kobe. Misinformation than any other pieces of content and the stakes are so high when we've seen facebook struggle with misinformation related to election interference. False news around politics. It's been upsetting for users. It's been frustrating. It's certainly caught the attention of washington lawmakers at our who are very angry at facebook.

I had no idea that there were these floors. Two floors underneath The white house where there are as you say flower shops. There's the Butlers have their lockers. i mean it is. This university are used to be a cafeteria where the staff would eat lunch and there was a one time even like a cook that would put for them. That's not the case anymore but I just thought it was fascinating. There's a there two hidden mezzanine levels where there's a pastry chef kitchen because the chef used to argue so much with the executive chef the actual you know the the pastry chef executive chef were get into these screaming matches. They got so bad that they had to be separated into separate kitchen. So i mean it is kind of like the stale naby at the white house and the book is meant to honor the work to of the african american butlers who during segregation would not be able to sit where they wanted to on the bus. But yet we're working in the most famous house in the country new the president well And the fact that the white house was indeed built by slaves. And so there's a lot of background there. And and i also think kids like to have specific so there's like a very specific map. There's a breakdown of the assures office and things like that. And and some fun photos of george h w bush playing horseshoes with the staff. And i think it's a. It's a hopeful. Look at what we might return to one day and you know And and the way that the resident staff stays on from one president to the next. I think is wonderful in in reporting this out. I mean this is. This is a different level of detail that you'd get into what are you. What are you tribute the fascination with the building to the majesty of the presidency. There's something there is something special about the white house. And i'll tell you my kids relate to and they've they've both been fortunate enough to be able to to go to the white house and the fascination remains for what where is where is the. Where is that little special sauce that you see coming out of this of most residents. I think it's you know it's the closest thing we have to Buckingham palace right. We don't have a royal family. This is it. And i think especially when their kids living there. That's why have a section growing up in the white house you know. There was something really special when sasha malia where they are an when barron trump was there. I mean there is a sense even though we didn't see a lot of them the staff really from what i know. The staffer liked having him there. You know the they'd see him playing video games in the residence. They'd see him playing soccer with his friends. There's a sense of lightness there and I mean you guys know this. It's really fun. When their kids. They are and animals. Like when the obamas had bo and sunny. There there was a lightness to it. And i think it's a mix it more human But yeah there's something very aspirational and patriotic and exciting about the building itself. That i think kids really can relate to. We're going to have animals. The biden's have have dogs. They also grandkids. What joe biden is very familiar with that building. Quite obviously through many presidencies. An eight years is is obama's vice president. What's your sense of after covid. What life will be like a in and around the biden white house. Well you both probably remember. How biden was you know he would have. Those parties for reporter is at the Naval observatory when he was vice president and he would get out there with a water gun and kids your kids and grandkids to come and it was like a very lighthearted scene and would bring german shepherd out. I mean it was always very inclusive. i think so. I think they'll be a you know a sense of fun that that was missing. I think that malania was very private and understandably guarded about barron so they ripped out the place that the obama girls had in. I mean everything was just. You know on lockdown it didn't feel is open And i think we'll see it more as the people's house when biden is there and there'll be a lightness To the house. I think. I hope we get the nice new tennis pavilion during this crisis. I mean that was. That was something important and i one thing about the about the book is you. You go into all the pets and there are so many great stories about About pets and you describe something that i could relate to. 'cause i had the same reaction as is being on air force one. During the obama years. I remember seeing bo. The dog was was was really was really something else. And now we've had four years..
"white house" Discussed on Powerhouse Politics
"I mean we've never seen this before you know Biden seventy eight years old. He'll be the oldest presidents take office. This is a virus that we know makes him especially susceptible and so the services administration said they're going to do this very deep cleaning cleaning every surface and of the fifty five thousand square foot mansion And we've never there's always been a deep clean between administrations but we've never seen anything like this and and i keep wondering you know. Trump can trump. No one would expect him to ride in the limo with biden on the way to the swearing in any way right because of covid so there are some things that he could get out of doing. Just because of the virus So if he does decided because we don't know yet right if he does decide to come in do this. Typical inauguration day cerebral the in. Show up he doesn't have to be especially physically close with biden and the way that the trumps and the obamas were so i would think that corona virus could be a an excuse for him in some ways to not have to do some of the traditional things Should he choose to show up in piece of tradition. That i've been thinking a lot about is the letter the to me some. There's some of the most memorable pieces of writing from from a president comes as as he leaves office. And the words that that george h w bush left for bill clinton became quite famous. I remember being. I was at the white house. Just a few days into the trump administration. David muir an interview there and were there in the oval office. He whipped out the letter that obama sent him. And you know the the block letters. Mr president at that point he was sort of hinting at was in it but he didn't. He didn't release it. It has subsequently become public and we remember what obama told trump about the importance of being the president for all the people. Trump seem moved by the words on that a letter he talked about. What a beautiful letter it was. He was very proud of this letter. I can't imagine trump writing a to joe biden. It's that sitting there in the resolute desk and to me it's it's just a small symbol of of how awkward destroyed What does this do to the president to president dynamic the club of presidents to have trump now a joining their ranks. Really with no to speak of with any of the other former presidents or the incoming president. I thought it was really interesting. That all of the former president said they would get vaccine right. I mean that was a good example of ways in which they get together To challenge trump without directly challenging him. But you're right. I mean the wondering about the letter to because you know you had bush forty one saying. I'm rooting hard for you to bill clinton. I mean this kind of sense of patriotism. And you just can't imagine that trump would do the same. And i've i've asked and haven't gotten an answer about the letter. I don't know if you guys have had any more luck than i have on that but I think it would be Even if he didn't show up to the inauguration right he could leave a letter in the drawer of the resolute desk for biden. God knows what it would say. But i think it would be fascinating The president's club is I think the remaining the living presidents are closer than they would have been otherwise because trump is kind of brought them together In some ways. But yeah i think he's gonna be obviously an outlier And it'll be very strange to witness what what happens when i think he'll leave and become a republican king maker right. I mean he's not going anywhere in the next few years you've also talked about how they the white house itself is actually also a museum and for those first two floors floors that we see if we go to a white house holiday party or something like that Are are really not controlled by the president the portrait's on the walls the decor are Are not you know. It's one thing that that even even as president you don't fully control. But i did catch a story. I'm sure you saw it to earlier. This i think it was earlier. This year About how the portraits of george w bush and and the clintons Of bill clinton. I don't think the hillary clinton portrait but had been moved so that the president wouldn't have to see them as he walks around those floors of the white house. First of all is that is that crew and as far as you know. And and secondly i curious what kind of lasting impact will donald trump have on that building. I mean malania. Got this strange sculpture. That was put in the In in the rose garden you know we're we're we're obama famously. Had his beer summit. I wonder if something like that thing is going to stay the The gold fixtures in the In you know the that have been put in The president's private bathroom the chandelier in his. I mean what what what kind of. Go back the white house ten years from now. What what mark of donald trump or are we going to see on the place. Do you think you know I think i might have mentioned this before that. I have heard that the physical impact that he's gonna leave. I don't know. I don't think it's i think that biden is probably gonna you know immediately get rid of the what the president jackson portrayed in the oval office and all those things that he can change immediately and it happens as you know. Right on inauguration day those photos are all switched out And it's like the the former president was never there. I mean you can make the physical changes. But i think he's obviously left and mark Culturally that will will Be very lasting And yeah i think that also a what. Melania trump did with that statue and then which he did with the rose garden a lot of these things show that there was just a tone deafness to this administration. And i think it is because she wasn't advised by the right people. She only had a staff of about a dozen people less than half of michelle obama staff. She just didn't she didn't have the right people working for her. And then like you said it's because they've alienated and and really ostracize themselves from all the other presidents who could've helped and all the other first ladies They didn't have a lot of bush people working there. They didn't have people with a to tional knowledge. And i think that was a big problem for them or kate. Let's take a quick break when we come back. I wanna talk to you a bit about About your new book back month..
"white house" Discussed on WSJ Opinion: Potomac Watch
"From the opinion pages of the Wall Street. Journal this is Potomac. Watch president trump is back at the White House Republicans are steaming ahead with Amy Cody Barrett's confirmation hearings and Michigan lockdown orders get struck down by the State Supreme Court Welcome Kyle Peterson with the Wall Street Journal sitting in today for Paul Zhigo. We are joined today as usual by my colleagues Kim, Strassel, hi, Kim Hi. Kyle. and Bill. mcgurn Hello Bill Hi Kyle On Monday night president trump left Walter, reed medical center went back to the White House There's video showing Marine One landing on the lawn trump getting out climbing the White House stairs taking off his mask and flashing thumbs up and then in a video that he tweeted a taken shortly thereafter, he thanked doctors urged the Americans not to be fearful the virus saying don't let it dominate. You don't be afraid of it. You're going to beat it doctor say that the president is not entirely out of the woods yet but bill, it's at least good to see him back in the White House good to see him feeling better than he was last week. Yeah. Absolutely. Look it hasn't gone the way he thought it would be but I think he's trying to convey optimism and and rightly also trying to convey you know you shouldn't be hostage to the situation you know you can move ahead and so forth. So but as you as you, no doubt heard when we editor Oriel meeting people watching the same thing had very different reactions to it, which seems to be true of anything president trump does well, let me ask a little bit about that. I mean I do wonder how the message of that optimism from him is going to be received. By the American people I mean, first of all critics will say that. The president was treated with an antibody cocktail that as of now is unavailable to the general public and I mean if everything goes well hopefully, that will be more widely available soon, but the second thing is that although the White House did have pretty strong testing protocol the argument is that the president and his staff were not following social distancing guidelines mass guidelines. And maybe the the the image that will stick in people's minds about this is the first family not wearing their masks in the debate hall last week Kim. What. What do you make of those arguments How do you think that that the president's messages here? Well most of those arguments are being made by let's be honest a left-wing media that despises this president. So they'll say whatever they can to undermine him, and the reality is that this disease is that we don't know how anybody got this who spread it under what circumstances when it happened We don't even know that masks necessarily are effective there I said it..
"white house" Discussed on Article II: Inside Impeachment
"Join me for wise's happening new episodes every Tuesday. Wherever you get your podcasts Let's talk about where things go from here. The articles of Impeachment Democrats McRae are are introducing here two articles of impeachment to charges abuse of power obstruction of Congress. We did not see the White House. Play a formal role in these committee. Hearings brings they were offered one the declined it. Will there be a specific White House defense on these two charges. The Senate is where they are expecting vaccine to really be able to lay out their case part of that is just by the very nature of how the Senate trial works and we don't have all the procedures details details on what's going to happen on. The Senate side laid out yet. But as we've seen in past impeachments the president's lawyers will have an opportunity to stand in front of the Senate and make their very clear concise case like it works in a criminal trial. That's where we should see. A more clear case from. The White House is coming to shape. You're getting into some interesting territory here too because there. Is this question out there about. If this zooming does get to the Senate the Senate has to have a trial. Republicans Publican's of course control the Senate Mitch McConnell the Senate Majority Leader on the one hand. Here he is the leader of the Republican Party in the Senate on the other hand he sort of has control troll of the entire Senate the entire chamber the entire institution. How is he balancing those two? Those two roles right. I mean obviously is not a supporter of of impeachment and has a very strong supporter of the president. He has not been as big a defender of the president's. S Some members of the Senate Lindsey Graham for example. Paul and. I'm told that part of that is that he has to do a bit of a balancing act here where the way that the impeachment is designed for the Senate. The senators are supposed to be the jurors. Now I've been told by people who talked to his office and and other senators involved in this process that you know they feel the house process looked very partisan and they would like it although it's a difficult to fully imagine this being possible but they would like it to sort of look like a non-partisan process in the Senate or at least not have it looked like quote unquote Oh kangaroo court show trial to of course then give some legitimacy to the outcome which presumably will be the president being acquitted so in order for that that to really look like the acquittal was done in a serious thoughtful process McConnell and other senators are trying to stay out of the the the daily fray of impeachment this is a obviously a noteworthy week in Washington to put it mildly. Not just because this is the week the Democrats Put to put forward the articles of impeachment. They're going to bring against the president but also because on the same day that Democrats did that there was arguably the biggest bipartisan artisan legislative breakthrough that there has been for the entire trump presidency basically three years now this on the US MCA the United States. Mexico Canada trade agreement sort of of an update of the NAFTA agreement from generation ago. The timing of that is so fascinating to folks because this gives at least potentially trump's something legislatively to brag about. What's going on there? That was maybe one of the biggest whiplash moments of the past three years. There's been so many but that that that was quite remarkable to see her with an hour of each other announce articles of impeachment. And then come out and say oh by the way you remember that guy. We were impeaching. Well we just reached a deal with him but for trump it does give him a really strong talking point. This was one of the main campaign promises he made. Unlike those politicians all additions I keep my promises. Trump advisor feel like this is one of their strongest arguments. Is that unlike every other politician in the history the world trump actually did what he said he was going to do. He didn't get into office and do what the lobbyist of the special interest told him to do. He stuck to what he said he was going to do. And he got it done and they have a whole motto. Promises made promises kept so it is a very big win for him and he doesn't have that many other than the tax bill. I'd say this is the second most significant legislative achievement. He has at that rally last night to the president. Also making the claim that hey this whole impeachment thing. It's only only making me stronger. Poll numbers have gone through the roof. Because stupid when you look at the polls on this it's it's much more complicated picture. Then he's painting. We've we've certainly seen before but I I. It's not clear to me. I have to say looking at the polls that either side is benefiting right now i. I wonder when you when you talk to people kind of behind the scenes on both sides of this do they each feel like yeah. The politics of this are going to work for us are they. Both apprehensive is one more confident than the other. What you pick up on when they're when they're sort of not being quoted for the record? Well I mean I will say I talk a lot. More to Republicans than people on trump than Democrats. But I certainly was just having a conversation with the the democratic strategists today who was touting some poll numbers they had in battleground states and then yesterday of course I was talking to someone on the trump side who who is touting their numbers in battleground states so everybody seems to have their own version of reality. Whether it's idee reported the Miller report or poll numbers everybody. Everybody seems to have their own version that fits their narrative but when I talked to those involved with the campaign about what are you looking for in the poll numbers. They have a sense that everybody's basically chosen their sides so there is a sense that this election like twenty sixteen is GonNa come down to the margins. It's GONNA come down to turn out it's GONNA to come down to mobilizing certain groups D mobilizing other groups. It's going to have a lot to do with who their opponent is. I think there's a general level of optimism in trump world. But they do feel like it will come down to a few thousand votes in Florida that we won't know how it's going to go until the night before before the election. It's a fascinating possibility that I guess kind of fits in with this polarized era. We're always talking about the possibility you could have. In impeachment of a President United States and he emerges politically not strengthened or weakened. Just just sort of the same after actually going through impeachment and then it comes down as you say to another election here we are again Tena Petty Senior White House reporter for NBC News.

"white house" Discussed on Article II: Inside Impeachment
"Shannon petty pieces of senior White House this reporter for NBC News Shannon. Welcome to the show. Thanks for having me so we have been talking for weeks now really months now about the impeachment of Donald Trump. Let's look closer at trump trump himself. His White House how he is handling all of this. He was in Hershey Pennsylvania last night chocolate capital of the world but I think when it comes to politics obviously Pennsylvania critical state in two thousand twenty one. That trump narrowly won in two thousand. Sixteen it's one. He's going to need to win again if he's GonNa get re-elected so on the same day that Democrats credits are formalizing these articles of impeachment against him trump is talking to a rally in Pennsylvania. What's he saying to them? He gave a pretty full throated. Defense of himself ALF. As well as ripping everyone involved in this process he at these rallies kind of goes through an area stark enemies list from Adam shifts like like shifty shifty. Here's a corrupt politician to Nancy. Pelosi is totally lost control to the whistle blower the whistle so blower defrauded our country because he throws one enemy after another at the audience and it is a bit of red the meat to the base but of course it's also a way for him to sort of get some things off his chest and you went on for about five minutes at this rally last night and I think that's maybe a little bit more. Then we get from him focused on peach men and it was really the only time we heard from the president yesterday and so he certainly did take that moment to give his full throated rebuttal rebuttal to what the Democrats had laid out you know. I wonder if there's a strategy behind holding a rally like this on a night like last night. Is there a strategic. TJ element here where trump in the White House WanNa put him in an arena of ten thousand members of the Republican base. Who are just cheering along shouting along? Long enjoying everything he saying about this sort of delivering a message to Republican elected officials. Have Hey remember the base is behind me. You don't WanNa Cross them exactly well in the early days of this impeachment inquiry when I talked to his advisers. What are you thinking? Are you nervous. Could this be end. They said well watch what happens to Republican Republican support. Even as numbers came out showing about half of Americans were supportive of this impeachment inquiry once they saw that Republicans support holding up. They said Ed does okay. I think we're GONNA be all right. There's not going to be a mutiny in Congress in the Senate because those Republicans will see if they want to avoid a primary. They're going to have to stick sick behind this president and I think he's continuing to do that in these rallies like you said are great example to reaffirm that he can fill a twenty thousand person stadiums in major cities including major democratic cities like Minneapolis for example where he was about a month or two ago. So that's definitely a side benefit of these things. It's interesting resting to to watch trump right now handling all of this because we have a president who was in his shoes in the same shoes basically at this exact time twenty one years ago. It was this same week. In December nineteen ninety eight at the House of Representatives was poised to impeach. Bill Clinton Clinton had a different way of handling it in public talk a little bit about comparisons between what Clinton was doing and and what effect it was having versus what trump's doing now get. It was a completely different way. I've talked to a number of people who are involved in that period with Clinton and who came up behind that strategy and they said really key to it was keeping Clinton out of impeachment Peach Mint as much as it might have bothered him personally. Behind the scenes in public he appeared to be president who was working hard on behalf of the the American people that was the image that they tried really hard to put in front that he couldn't be distracted by impeachment. He had real things to deal with. He had the economy and jobs and all the other foreign policy issues that come with being president and impeachment was just a a silly little thing that was being done by the Republicans now of course he did address his accusations and his impeachment at very key specific moments but on a daily basis he sought to stay out of the the fray and look presidential and Republicans and Democrats credit that strategy with helping Clinton get through the process where his approval approval rating went up to sixty percent seventy percent at one point. He left office as one of the most popular presidents they give that credit to the strategy. Strategy and Lindsey Graham was even one of those to give credit to this I think one of the reasons that he survived is that the public may not have liked what the president had done but believed that he was still able to do his job and as he governed during impeachment. I think that was probably the single best thing. He did. Quite frankly to to avoid and it also helps it backfire on the publicans because it made it look like the Republicans. Were not focused on the issues. That matter to people and were carrying on with you know what they tried to portray as just silliness inside the beltway behavior. One of the other other contrast to between Clinton and trump is what was going on behind the scenes is Clinton had sort of for lack of a better term a war council around him and impeachment appeasement war-council trump is really the single soul shaper of strategy for this White House. Trump actually said to us I forget which reporters specifically typically asked but it was one of those days when he's heading off to the helicopter and someone asked him. Are you going to build a war room or are you know. Are you going to be adding staff to help with impeachment. And he said I the an the team that I don't have teams everyone's talking about I'm the team. I did nothing wrong. Of course that fits in with this bigger theme. We've seen of his presidency. Let's see where he is his own communication director. He is his own. You know chief of Staff is own. Political Adviser doesn't think he needs a big staff around him but yeah Clinton learn how to very formal war room. They had a lawyer inside the White House who was solely focused on and peach men who acted as the quarterback who reviewed you'd messaging and talking points that went out of the surrogates and the circuits Clinton had were very few. It was James Carville and Lanny Davis for the most part and those two were able to have a very coordinated sharp message backed up by the facts backed up by the lawyers but it was organized denies and strategize and focused. And we've seen something much different in the trump White House I've seen some reporting here potentially interesting common link between Clinton and trump and that is somebody that trump apparently met with a couple of weeks ago who was instrumental in advising Clinton in ninety eight ninety nine. who was that what can you? What can you tell us about that? Mark Penn former Clinton adviser came into the White House to talk about this strategy that Clinton used and the trump White House is well aware of what what Clinton did how their strategy played out. They have received this advice of keep focused on being presidential. Don't look like you're distracted and pulled down by impeachment impeachment but like so much of the advice. People have given trump throughout his presidency whether it's his national security advisers or his allies in Congress he just I has a way of doing it his way and making his own call at the end of the day about how he's going to do it and he seems to be carried through with that she in an Alaska to stay put for week. Second where we take this break back in just a minute. Hey It's Chris as you know. Sometimes it's good to just take a step back from the day to day onslaught of news and take our broader broader. Look at the issues. That's what I'm doing each week. My podcast why is this happening. Were exploring topics ranging from school segregation to climate change. Well the way that I think it is climate change to the twentieth century. What maternity was to the nineteenth century? It'll be the central subject of questions about economic justice. Everything you care about in the world will be affected by climate and digging in deep with guests uniquely qualified to analyze issues from mass incarceration to race relations as you know for the first time in our history at the national level whites are on the verge of losing their majority status in twenty years. And I think it's no coincidence that our politics park getting more tribal..
"white house" Discussed on WSJ Opinion: Potomac Watch
"Yeah. From the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac watch Goshi actions begin post to government shutdown for a some kind of border security immigration deal that could could help prevent block another shutdown. We'll tell you about the early innings. They're welcome. I'm Paul zhigo. And I'm here with the Kim strassel and Kate batchelder Odell. So the we had a little scoop in the paper here on these negotiations that have been taking place behind the scenes in which the White House counsel's office is negotiating with of all people Kamala Harris, and especially Dianne Feinstein to California senators over a pellet nominees. Now, what triggered this is that when the White House submitted remember last year late last year Jeff flake, the Republican from Arizona than at the time. No. Senator objected to judicial nominees being voted on in the Senate because they had a narrow margin Republicans couldn't confirm any nominee. So the White House now has renominated fifty judicial nominees. I think that's the figure Kate isn't it fifty and if t one and and three names conspicuously missing these are three nominees from California. Ed been nominated last year for the night circuit court of appeals Patrick Bouma. Tei Dan Collins in Ken Lee, now two other nominees for the night, circuit were renominated one from Washington state one from Arizona, why the Californians not Ron renominated enquiring minds want to know. And it turns out that this is because the White House has been Goshi eight into try to come to some consensus with these. Democratic senators to try to get at least less opposition to this these nominees and the future by giving them a stake in who can be who the president will nominate up front Kate. And I have to say the strikes me as an awful idea. But please please expand. Well, Paul so Diane Feinstein and Kamala Harris have been going back and forth with the White House counsels office on this issue for several months, including public letters asking that the White House counsel office would negotiate with them. And they're opening offer has basically been we will accept one person from your list, and then we want one person from our own list, and then some third candidate that everyone can agree upon. But there hasn't been much movement on this front, and it's easy to see why. And that's because Feinstein and Harris are unlikely to sign off on anybody on the White House list, the three nominees you mentioned are all well-qualified candidates that Harrison Feinstein have just a wholesale opposed. And they don't seem willing to accept any of those three as a part of an trade. Well, you know, my information is that. In fact, the White House is considering this pets baloney. The new White House council has been considering this with a goal of. Quake seriously. This isn't just some rumor or fly by night exercise. This is a serious consideration in the White House designed to to try to maybe kind of slow down. I mean, reduce the degree of opposition from democratic senators to Republican nominees, and in particular, if the White House gets a chance to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg later this year because of the justices health, and I'm not saying they will she's has given no intentions of wanting to step down. Although she she did have a very serious operation late last year. The the they're hoping that maybe this would get avoid kind of red cavenaugh meltdown. Kim my own view is good luck with that. Hope. I think Mr. zip baloney oughta be made to sit down and rewatch those Brad Kavanagh hearings. So that he can get a better sense of just how in the mood Democrats are to tolerate or accept any Trump nominee to the supreme court. This is wishful thinking, and it's very bad strategy because not only will it not aid them in that goal. But the president and the White House come across here looking very weak. They look almost as if they are rewarding the behavior of MS Harris, miss Feinstein, who were among the top people who did the drive-by mugging of Brett Cavanaugh and subjected him to such a horrible process and the idea that they come out of that. And then are rewarded and as by giving a veto over the president's ninth, circuit nominees is just mind boggling in a certain way. Well, not in a certain way, and every way so. It's it's a stonning and look to remember since we're talking about future supreme court nominees and people's motivations..
"white house" Discussed on It's Been a Minute with Sam Sanders
"I mean, there's just, I mean, I guess I shouldn't have answered quickly. There's just discussion over how to handle it. I think that there are White House correspondents who've been covering administration's on our teams since like Clinton, I think go that far back and you know, applying sort of historical context to how to interact is important. But there's also an acknowledgement that this is different president and a different White House. They they, they've, they eat the trust pieces. You know, they don't play chess. They eat the board, you know? And it's and it's hard to deal. You know, it's hard to strategize for that. And I think you know when people see somebody yelling at Sarah, I think all of us are just like God, you know, like this is not helpful. It's not, you know, but then there's also an acknowledgement that, like maybe if if she's doing those strategic thing, like you're talking about, you know how, how do we deal with that? Or when they're tried to hold like off the records with fifty reporters? Like, why are we agreeing to this? Do we take ourselves out of this? Or do we go, you know? So those are not easy things to address our answer. How do you address them internally are like, do you have conflict inside of yourself in? I always, I feel like the tenants of good journalism are solid, no matter what no matter who is occupying the White House. And so I just try to stick to that even if you have a president who eats all the chess pieces, right? Like if you, if you. Been taught the rules of chess you have to play differently, but then if you get sucked in, I feel like if you get sucked in and you start to compromise what you know to be good journalism to deal with the current environment, then that's how you. Yeah, get tripped up. So you guys here all of the critique of the White House press corps coming from the left and the right in the middle in up and down. What is the one critique of White House coverage that rings truest to you, and how do you try to address equity in your work? I always say journalism in education or the two professions where people who've never worked in them, think they knew how to do the job. Yeah, right. Like I've never been a teacher, but I'm sure I've been like if I was a teacher, I would tell you. Yeah, I do think sometimes we we cast about on stories that don't necessarily matter in a true sense, but that matter in the moment because they're interesting in an entertaining and they might drive ratings, give me an example of one of those stories like the tweet did your and yes, sometimes we dissect a tweet and we, you know, don't still cover the fact that there are some five hundred plus children who are still separated from their parents. You know what I mean? Who are still being detained by the government because that story we know already. And yeah, how do you combat that impetus in your newsroom or can you you're part of a newsroom? Sometimes can't sometimes, you know, sometimes you can't, and sometimes you might find a hook and be able to bring that story back into your reporting. Yeah, and make it resonant and salient. Again, Katie criticism of White House coverage rings true for you. That he plays us that he baits us and we knew it. Yeah, really? Oh, yeah. I mean, I agree, but I don't know that what the answer to that is like, I I, I don't know. I think I briefly thought about it with the flag stuff. The other day with McCain, where it's just like other presidents have been criticized before for their time line of consult their condolence timely. Unlike Obama was criticized for not issuing a proclamation after a mass shooting in Chattanooga, and he did it after there was sort of an outcry from veterans, and you know, we, we tend to like jump on this White House. You know, when we see things rising on social media, like viral photos of the flag up and it's like you have to be really careful to write the story in a way that's not at a to'real ising siding with everyone else saying, this is you know, deeply inappropriate, but then you report and you know that his aides tried to like be appropriate and he's like, no. So..
"white house" Discussed on It's Been a Minute with Sam Sanders
"News. Who did that for the about to the to the Obama? Is it always the TV guess more often than not because it doesn't try that kind of the kind of interaction doesn't translate bakers. Got, I think Peter's gotten yelled out or the time span yelled at and Peter just like thank you and just like imprint people are a little bit more like, all right, you know, because we're so it's it's a, it's a personal decision on behalf of that reporter that correspondent and on behalf of that of that news organization of, you know, as a how to handle it. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. I just think that there is, you know, when we're in the briefing room, though, I do think it's important when we're trying to get an answer on something that is meaningful and the White House has learned to your stonewall and play us against each other. I mean, they knew I White House aides have told me like we're a team as opposed to you guys, you know? Yeah, totally. And I just mean when Jordan Fabian he works at the hill kind of gave Halley Jackson, the floor or yeah, Sarah tried to move on. I forget what the question was, but Jordan, he didn't do any grandstanding like I'm seating my question. All he did was say, go ahead if you want. You know, it's like those are very small gestures that make us look less petty, and it wouldn't be nice to see that kind of unity just like low key. Yeah, live unity. Are there unified answers to these kind of questions within your newsrooms? Are there disarmament and argh. Sorry. Tell me more. What do you go you? You know. Unified answers to questions about like how to how to deal with the president, that kind of thing in the like in these big questions about how the White House press corps and White House correspondents deal with this press environment. Is there a unified front or stance or point of view on that inside your newsroom. Sort of in the sense that like we NBC have all more or less agreed that the story is primary rank west, right? Not to make ourselves. The center of the story goes both in how we report it and how we conduct ourselves in the briefing room, how we conduct ourselves and interactions both on and off camera with White House officials. But there are no sort of like marching orders that we've received from on high about about how to deal with this administration. You know, day in and day out, very diplomatic answer. I mean, but what's interesting though is that if people watch the briefing, you can see how Sarah will strategize, you know how she's going to give her answers who she called on she, how they delay the briefings. So say for instance, debriefing, it's supposed to start at two o'clock. Yeah. And the president has an event on a schedule that starts three and he doesn't want till two thirty or to get so many many has fifteen minutes and so she'll she often will call on the front row because it's the wire services. It's the TV correspondent. Who need that interaction for their nightly news piece. But if she wants to change the subject, she'll call on a business reporter in the back of the room, she'll call on a international reporter because she knows they don't care about Michael Cohen or store. They wanna know about trade or whatever. The whatever topic. Yeah, and so that's and that's how sometimes she will hit the release pal youth tension in the room. She'll call on someone she knows doesn't isn't asking the same question. Yeah, Katie, these arguments about, you know what the stance of White House correspondent should be. You said there's no unified front and your neutral Mita..

"Believe after the confirmation of break Cavanaugh, the supreme court nominee, but now the president is Katie mentions in real time is confirming. Reporting, so like, okay, this is one example of how different out of the ordinary. This administration is usually when a departure you hear buzz about it. I and it's confirmed. And then there's like an official statement. This was just a tweet, and this happens a lot. A lot of times what happens is the president will say something, he'll tweet something. And so what happens is you have the White House staff trying to make the reality on the ground reflect mayor has said or tweeted about, and then sometimes you'll catch Sarah Sanders out there doing the world's hardest job trying to keep up with the show. And so for instance, with this issue, this Mcgann forthcoming resignation this morning, Sarah said, when we have an announcement will let you know suggesting that they were working through the process of coming up with an announcement. Sure. There was a plan to get in front of this, but yet the president, it appears cut it all off. Well, personnel stuff. He, he keeps things really close to his chest a lot to he knows that stuff leaks. And with the marchers or hires or appointments, you often have little visibility into it because he understands like to your point about knowing where the cameras are. I mean, the man is like the foremost meat, like media scholar, generation of anybody's done. I mean. He knows how the big reveal works. He knows that in like he's hone that skill over three, four decades. He knows how to kick start a new cycle. He knows how to barrel. Fourth, when things are not looking good, like the McCain flag thing feels like that happened in April. You know, he Cohen and metaphor fill, right? You happen to twelve and I think we like just don't really. I don't know what the most interesting thing about covering this president is going to rallies. I've covered morale. Remember in watching him work through a message and the start. I remember him doing this with the NFL stuff to where he would attack the players for the for the silent protests and he would he would say align and if it didn't get the right kind of applause, he would. He would switch up Cindy. Say it again and let it land always said he was like comic trying out new before the comedy special? Yeah, like the comic that goes to the dingy comedy club on Monday night and just tries aligns out and he fancies himself that he's not a politician, but he, he's discourse. You audition. And like all good politicians. He knows exactly where his base is exactly what motivates them. And that's one of the reasons why he says what he does about immigration about the NFL he is, you know, he's trying to position himself as a as a nationalistic culture warrior. Yeah, and hasn't really moved beyond the skills if you want to call them that that made him successful as a candidate because his supporters haven't required anything other from heckling. Exactly. So just thinking about this news today with Mcgann and talking about how a lot of times Trump staffers are trying to keep up with Trump, how does that affect sourcing? Like is it harder to talk? I wanna know what's what? Knowing that things are changing. Things are true until they aren't, and it took me a while to be able to figure out how to say that on television..

"From NPR. I'm Sam Sanders. It's been amid today. We are talking politics because the midterms are coming up because it's always a good time to talk politics, but also because I am here in DC for a few weeks. So why not? In this episode I'm asking to very smart people. One very big question. What's it like the cover the White House in the age of Donald Trump. I asked that question and a lot of other ones to my two guests Katie Rogers and Jeff Bennett Katya White House correspondent for the New York Times. We worked together years ago at the Washington Post. You have heard on this show before and Jeff is the White House correspondent for NBC news. He's an old friend from our days together on the PR politics team. So I'm going to be honest here and just say, I love this conversation not just because I think the two of them are really swell, but because they told me so much more than I thought they would. They talked about their work. They talked about their lives outside of work. They talked about how. How those two things never stopped colliding. The also told me what it feels like for the White House press corps to be a character in the president's ongoing reality show, and they talked very openly about what they think the White House press corps is getting wrong. I went into this conversation thinking that I had a pretty good understanding of what it means to cover a White House. I did not, but I learned a lot in this chat and I think you will to all right, let's get to it. But just one more note, we tape this conversation last Wednesday, August twenty. Ninth. And because President Trump, you will hear some news break during our chat. All right here I am talking with Katie and Jeff in Washington DC..

"No either exactly the nature of of uh jerk kushner's business dealings or the nature of how parliament or of how bob muller's looking into those business dealings or is this just bannon doing punditry in the way that any of us might sort of guessing about what situated thinks and i think it's mostly the ladder had he knows a little bit more than the rest of us having been on the inside but i think this is the statement about kushner frosty nope might be true but i think it's mostly born of hatred he just hates the guy with the burning passion and was waging a war against him in the white house and that's where these quotes came from gesturing where do you think i think that's basically right i mean it's hard to convey on on on the page in a book put bannon uh when he talks when he gets worked up he kind of whips himself into this mania in what you have from him as a kind of a wish casting him asserting what he thinks is going to happen or what he wants to happen and it can sometimes be difficult when you're reading a transcript uh to to understand that he isn't saying this based on something he knows but rather something that he wants to be true he thinks is likely true uh i do think he's he's he's right about that by the way that is that is that his assumption that this is this is this is the path muller's gonna take is probably the correct one and one of the things that make ban and so interesting unquotable uh is that if you just look at a lot of what he says objectively you know he's right um me decent i was i was going to urgently on and say i was going to go on and say you know about his comments on jared kushner nevada that maybe maybe i should go in that trash honor i should say like yeah he's a decent punted and but that may be really what he's best at i think one of the things that this book and this ruckus eh eh illustrates is that the time period that were we've been talking a bannon is actually incredibly small and most of his life bannon has had a um let's see an uneven career i think josh would agree and he hasn't had like the kind of soaring.
"white house" Discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts
"Twenty minutes and out and that makes it a much more compressed much more compact and much more talking point driven experience for the white house and sadly for reporters but just tom real quick yeah any anyone who's trying to understand and wrapped their arms around this conversation must know this no selfrespecting white house correspondent would ever build their reporting day around the white house briefing and only the oil now we get that we get that i know i mean it is it is always been the public relations aspect than the most visible public relations aspect of the white house and all your best reporting is done before and after and use the outside of the building then you bring information in and force people to tell you what's actually going so why does it matter again because people majored so it matters in a couple of respects there is that there is a transparency element there is a respect of the process and as i said previous administrations thought this was a given taken thought it was incumbent upon the white house to take all the incoming and take it with not only good humour but a sense of respect for the process is white house tends to think no a lot of the questions are phoniedup allow questions are based on got you premises that they don't even want to validate and that giving it its due respect diminishes their ability to communicate with their supporters not enhance it and it's that general premise about what the value of the briefing is and how it should be most exploited the differentiates us why now kathleen major sits there listens works with this does his own outside reporting as well like others but he says what he here's in the press briefing is not a facts but and not even a traditional defence let's say the president but a cultural attitude and you can feel that you can hear it in her language you can see it in your body language what's what's i mean this is the daughter of mike huckabee she's been around politics a long time about.
