Poll: Biden, Trump tied in North Carolina
"Pushing back this morning and gets a New York Times report that he paid little or no income tax in the years leading up to the 2016 election. President calls it fake news that Daniel Lippman is a White House reporter for Politico, he says this is not gonna go over well with some and could actually help Joe Biden. It makes it seem like he's cheating the system. Most Americans are paying more than seven or $50 in taxes, but they're not even as wealthy is President Trump. This is a huge political gift for Joe Biden. You can be sure that he's going to be using this in the debate. And President Trump and Joe Biden are getting ready for their first major debate and a new CBS News battleground tracker poll shows buying with a small lead over the president. 2% points in North Carolina. 69% of likely voters say that the Supreme Court vacancy is a major factor in their vote. CBS News correspondent Janet A. Sham Lian is in Cary, North Carolina, where the president Supreme Court pick of Amy Cockney Barrett. Is a big factor. Devil blood. So is a Trump supporter who opposes abortion. There's no reason to block that if they're a good person, and they are a lawyer, and they know the Liao and they're going to follow the law at a rural driving church service, Christopher Burwell says he's concerned about what he's heard. He will do away with Obamacare. She will do away with Roe vs Wade. Now the 90 minute debate is set for tomorrow night in Cleveland. We will have all
Examining the Record of Amy Coney Barrett as Nomination Fight Heats Up
"President Trump's nominee to the supreme court appeared at the White House over the weekend. Judge Amy Conybeare at pay tribute to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who seat she is hoping to fill. Should I be confirmed Will be mindful of who came The flag of the United States is still flying at half staff and memory of justice. Ruth. Bader Ginsburg to mark the end of a great. American. Life. Justice Ginsburg began her career at a time when women were not welcome in the legal profession. But she not only broke glass ceilings she smashed them. But there are many ways their philosophies are quite different judge Barrett's legal career. We'll be under the microscope in the weeks ahead. So this is a good time to talk with our justice and judiciary editor, Vivica, Novak, Vivica good to have you here. To be with mark, I want to start out with the basics just who is judge amy, coney? Barrett and why are conservatives so enthusiastic about her nomination. She is a known conservative. She was a clerk for Justice Scalia and has often spoken of him very admiringly. She's been a lot professor Notre Dame and she has continued to teach while she has been on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago in general the anti-abortion groups feel very confident that she would be a vote in their favour whether she'd Overturn Roe v Wade is is unclear, but she is generally not a fan of abortion. Obviously abortion is getting a lot of discussion in this conversation, but this is a court that could. Rule on many different areas including health care even the twenty twenty election would her presence mean on the court? Well, she will be the person who gives the conservatives a six to three majority on the court, and even if Justice Roberts who has occasionally sided with the liberals even if he does that in the future on on certain cases, you know they will still have five votes, five conservative votes. So that's that's one important factor here. She will be probably not a vote in favor of upholding the affordable care act and that's one of the. First arguments. The court will hear it's coming up in November is a challenge to Obamacare and Justice Roberts a couple of years ago in another court challenge to the care he voted with the Liberals and she has actually said in a speech that she believes he voted wrong in that case in fact, he wrote the opinion she believes he was wrong. So that's one important issue coming up, and of course, the election none of us really wants to relive the two thousand election I don't think which was turned to the Supreme Court but it. Could happen it could happen, and if it does, you know there are some trepidation about the six three makeup of the court being certainly not in favor Joe Biden, we have election looming around the corner Republicans are moving forward planning to hold hearings the week of October twelfth in the hopes of confirming her before Election Day. So who will motivate more? How will this affect the election really good question conservatives generally in the past have been known to be more motivated by the prospect of putting more people on the federal courts including the Supreme Court. Democrats this time though are going to be framing things I think in terms of issues they're going to be talking about the affordable care act which most Americans are in favor of most Americans like it. They'll be talking to some degree about abortion probably not as much. They'll be talking about the election though and what could happen there. They will try very hard to peel off a couple of Republican votes. It's GonNa be tough hall, and Right now it looks like Mitch McConnell has. The votes and there isn't very much the Democrats can do about it. There may be a few procedural things that can slow things down, but it is really stretching to think that the Democrats I think could could slow this down, push it after the election, and then perhaps kill the nomination that's really pie in the sky. At this point it seems both parties feel a sense of urgency here as this is a lifetime appointment here and particularly her being so young, she's only forty eight. Could be on the court for a good long time and it's unclear. You know there are some other justices who are not that young but there are a lot who are actually not that old. So you know president trump has made it a point to name. People who have probably a good couple of decades at least on the court. Are Movements now to, for instance, put term limits on justices even if that were to make it through Congress and that's that's going to be hard to do. But even if were to make it through, even if a president were to sign it, it probably wouldn't apply to justices who are already on the court. It probably would be applied going forward. There are also people who talk about expanding the court. Some people call court packing that's kind of a derisive term, but expanding the court to add two more justices or more. That's really a tough lift but these things are being talked about more than we've heard in quite a long time. VIVICA Novak. Thanks again. Thank you.

Why a private section of the border wall is allegedly failing
"By Iraq war veteran Bryan Cole Fatchett, triple amputee. They wanted to raise a billion dollars to quote build Trump's wall. The targeted mission Texas in the Rio Grande Valley, one of the busiest illegal border crossing areas in the country, all on the border. We're here building. You gotta help out. They had started producing the video's promoting this project and they were on the property. They started clearing the property before anyone really knew what was going on The company Clearing the riverbank to build the private wall was Fisher Sand and Gravel. Tommy Fisher, the company's CEO, had been trying and failing to land a lucrative border wall contract from the government. Since 2017. When the Trump administration began soliciting Wall design concepts. Fisher was one of the companies to put up a prototype. Officials of the Department of Homeland Security said it had design flaws. A second bid was also rejected. Frustrated Tommy Fisher took another approach. We really believe with our patent pending system, we could bring sexy. Back to construction. He became a fixture on Fox News, the president's favorite network at the time, people time sounding less like a contractor and more like a contestant on a reality show pandering to an audience of one, You know, hopefully the president will see this as well. And he's a guy who says he can cut through bureaucracy two weeks after that appearance on Fox In April of 2019. I don't know if you heard about this contractor that said he could build the whole wall for a lot cheaper than anybody else. Yes, I have. We're dealing with him. Actually, Fisher Comes from North Dakota. Recommended strongly by a great new senator. As you know, Kevin Cramer, by May of 2019 Tommy Fisher had the president's attention but still couldn't land a contract to build the government's wall. The Army Corps of Engineers, which oversees border wall construction, pointed to the company's lack of experience building border walls to prove they could fissure teamed up with we build the wall. First in New Mexico and later here on the banks of the Rio Grande admission. On the banks of any rivers difficult. But building on the raging Rio Grande is especially challenging, made more complicated because the U. S Mexico border but straight down the middle of it. So any plans to build on it must be approved by the International boundary and Water Commission for I, B. W C. Sand and gravel didn't get that approval before they started. Bulldozes. What steps did they skip? All of them. What should they have done? They should have gone to the I B W c to the A and presented their plan an actual plan. What about this idea that you know this is private money being used on private land and a landowner could do whatever he wants. They absolutely can do whatever they want on their property. As long as it doesn't affect other people's property. And you think the wall infringes on other clearly does. The way the bollards were built is gonna cause clogging of that wall, So those followed the trash or debris could get stuck in there and then the waters. It's a giant break, just like a rake in your yard. It's going to catch all that debris and redirect that water. Penna filed a lawsuit on behalf of a neighboring wildlife refuge called the National Butterfly Center, which feared the wall would cause flooding to its property. U. S government also suit on behalf of the I. B. W C. Good walls make good neighbours. But this wall did not. We've got rogue priest running around anti Trump anti Won't we build the walls? Bryan Cole fragile, launched attacks against anyone who opposed their wall. Falsely saying the national Butterfly Centre was the site of a rampant sex trade and that the Army Corps of Engineers was part of the deep state even took game and Father Royce Nights a local priest to oppose the Trump wall. Accusing him of promoting child trafficking. Also not true. We build the wall people came after you personally and that's something I didn't even know who they were. They're coming after the local priest. Yeah, I guess you're not from around here comes from around here. We can. Even Mom and Dad can disagree about things without being mean and nasty. Last December, Brian Colfax bragged in an interview that we build the wall had a direct line to the White House. We have Crispo back and Steve Bannon A lot of people that are tied in with the Trump administration, so we're able to back channel things to the Trump Administration and let them know what we're doing, But what they were doing was falling apart. A recent engineering inspection after summer storms revealed deep gashes under the foundation of the wall. That's Mariana Trevino, right, who runs the Butterfly center line underneath it. This was a normal seasonal rainfall and what happened to the wall the foundation washed out from under enormous sections of it, His attorney said after this, that this is just a normal part of new construction if you walked out of your new house And had a 30 FT hole under your home foundation. Would you consider that normal? There's the end of the hall right
Trump's tax revelation, what are the highlights?
"Donald J trump paid seven hundred and fifty dollars in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency in his first year in the White House he paid another seven hundred and fifty dollars. He had paid no income taxes at all in ten of the previous fifteen years largely because he reported losing much more money than he made. So that's the lead. In this is in reporting from New York Times Sunday afternoon by investigative reporters Russ Butner Suzanne Craig, and Mike Macintyre now Russell Suzanne incidentally or two of the three that dropped the huge story on trump's finances in October of two thousand, eighteen ahead of the midterm elections. and that was fueled by the financial documents provided by Mary trump who is now suing the president and his siblings by the way for defrauding her out of millions of dollars. But back to today's story from the New York Times quote. The New York Times has obtained tax return data extending over more than two decades for Mr Trump and the hundreds of companies that make up his business organization including detailed information from his first two years in office. It does not include his personal returns for two, thousand, eighteen or twenty nineteen. This article offers an overview of times findings. Additional articles will be published in the coming weeks. So this one, hundred and ninety two paragraph long story is an overview of the times findings. this is the sparks notes the abridged version the Reader's digest abridged story. And I'm GonNa go over the key highlights with you. Hundred Ninety two paragraphs is the overview of what they found. And they're going to be releasing multiple stories in coming weeks for details about what they've uncovered an important caveat here by their very nature, the filings will leave many questions on answered. These tax returns that they got many questions will be unfulfilled. They comprise information that Mr. Trump has disclosed to the irs not the findings of an independent financial examination they report the trump owns hundreds of millions of dollars in valuable assets, but they do not reveal his true wealth nor do they reveal any previously on reported connection to Russia? This kind of makes sense why Sivan's needs the documents, right These data simply report revenue not profit in two, thousand eighteen for example, trump announced his disclosure in his disclosure that he had made at least four, hundred, thirty, four, point, nine, million dollars. The tax records deliver a very different portrait of his bottom line forty seven point four, million dollars in losses. So he announced his disclosure, he made four hundred and thirty, five million. In here it says he lost forty seven point four million. To that's what he filed his taxes as. All of the information that times obtain was provided by sources with legal access to it. So we can. Try to guess. WHO This to the New York Times prior to the election maybe somebody on the case who knew that the case wouldn't be Sort of we wouldn't see any fruits of that until after the election. I don't know I'd be guessing. These tax data examined. by The Times, provide a roadmap of revelations from write offs for the cost of criminal defense lawyer a mansion used by the family retreat to a full accounting of the millions of dollars that the president received from the twenty thirteen Miss Universe pageant in Moscow. So that's kind of a Russian dealing. The apprentice may trump a total of four, hundred, twenty, seven, point, four, million, which he then invested in a collection of businesses that we're failing mostly golf courses. They steadily devour cash much as the money he secretly received from his father the and how that financed spree of quixotic overspending that led to his collapse in the ninety. the picture that perhaps emerges most starkly from the mountain of figures and tax schedules prepared by Mr Trump's accountants accountants. MAZAAR. Clue. Probably got this from the Manhattan Da Somebody there. This is the picture that emerges starkly is of a businessman president in a tightening financial vice. Most of trump's core enterprises from his constellation of golf courses to conservative magnet. Hotel in Washington I guess it draws conservatives. They all report losing millions if not tens of millions of dollars year after year. His revenue from the apprentice and from licensing deals drying up and several years ago he sold nearly all the stocks that now might have helped him plug holes in his struggling properties and tax looms. And within the next four years more than three, hundred, million in loans and obligations for which he's personally responsible personally will come do. Over the next four years. And these records show the actual and potential conflicts of interest created by trump's refusal to divest himself of his business interest. While in the White House his properties have become havens for collecting money directly from lobbyists, foreign officials, and others seeking facetime access or favors. The record for the first time, put precise dollar figures on these transactions. Here's some examples at the Mar, a Lago Club, a flood of new members starting in two thousand fifteen allowed him to pocket an additional five, million a year from the business people paying for access at his Durrell Golf Course in Miami. The roofing materials manufacturer GIF spent at least one point, five, million in two, thousand, eighteen even has as its industry was lobbying the trump administration to rollback egregious federal regulations conflict. In two thousand Seventeen Billy Graham vandalistic association paid about four hundred thousand dollars to the Washington Hotel where the group held at least one event during its four day World Summit in defense of persecuted Christians. Then when he took office Mr Trump said he would pursue no new foreign deals as president. Even. So in his first two years in the White House is revenue from abroad till seventy three, million dollars. And while much of that money was from his golf properties in Scotland and Ireland some came from licensing deals in countries with authoritarian leaning leaders or thorny geopolitics. For example, three million from Deteriora- from the Philippines two point three, million from India and one million from Turkey. Now the data also contains. Revelations about the one hundred, thirty, thousand dollars payment to Stephanie Clifford Stormy Daniels. The, which is one of the focuses of the Manhattan da Subpoena for trump's tax returns. Another financial information another clue that that might be where they got this. However. They say that it has no new revelations, but there is kind of a revelation because trump has acknowledged reimbursing cohen. Who made the? Payoff. But the materials obtained by The Times did not include any itemize payments to Cohen. The amount however could have been improperly included in legal fees written off as a business expense which are not required to be itemized tax returns that says to me. That trump. Didn't make the payoff where he would have had to have itemize it. Which says to me. It was improperly recorded. As a business transaction. At for legal fees, which is another thing to Manhattan as looking at. Business fraud. Falsifying business documents. Now, no subject has provoked more intense speculation about trump's finances than his connections to Russia while the tax records revealed no previously unknown financial connection and for the most part lack specificity required to do. So they did shed light on the money behind the two thousand thirteen Miss Universe pageant in Moscow at the subject of Enduring Intrigue Because of subsequent investigations into Russia's interference in two thousand sixteen. So basically what the time saying here is that there's nothing itemized here about Russia, but there wouldn't be because it's not required to be in tax returns but boy, did we see something interesting about the? Miss Universe Pageant in twenty thirteen. The records show that the pageant was the most profitable Miss Universe during trump's time is co owner and that generated a personal payday of two point three million dollars made possible by the Aguilara F- family at least in part who would later help set up the infamous twenty sixteen trump tower meeting. For. Officials seeking dirt on Clinton with Veselnitskaya who is now we know connected directly to the Kremlin. The record show that in two thousand thirteen to paget reported thirty one point six, million in gross receipts. That's the highest since at least the nineties allowing trump and his co owner NBC's split the profits of four point seven million by comparison trump and NBC lost two million on the deal the year before. Moscow and made three point eight million from the one the year after. So it appears the Russia one. Made money and made a lot of money a lot more money than it ever has before. So did. Russia overpaid trump for this event. Wonder why? In Two thousand, thirteen?

"white house" Discussed on Stuff You Missed in History Class
"Unfortunately very few of the mansions historically significant artifacts are retained or preserved while saving the house itself during the Kennedy Administration First Lady Jackie Kennedy redecorated, but her vision for the mansion was one that sought to incorporate what had come before her redecoration was really more of a researched restoration. Mrs. Kennedy sought out experts in antiques and assembled them into a committee that would advise on this whole process. As Jackie Kennedy's efforts became public knowledge antique pieces donated from private owners to become part of the White House restoration in September of Nineteen Sixty one congress passed an act concerning the White House and providing the care and preservation of its historic and artistic contents. This established the White House, art collection, and it finally declared the White House a museum. The first lady hired the first. White, house curator tasked with creating a comprehensive catalogue of the homes contents in managing the collections with an eye toward preservation as well as collection as you may recall from Vincent Price episode from back in two thousand, sixteen price was one of the art experts who helped assemble that first official art collection, but perhaps the most significant White House. From the Kennedy Administration was the first. Lady's establishment of the White House Historical Association the White House's Stoorikhel Association is a private nonprofit organization and it stated mission is quote to protect, preserve and provide public access to the rich history of America's Executive Mansion. Used a lot of their available research as they worked on this. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, two, ABC aired. What is now a pretty famous piece about Jackie Kennedy's work in the White House including a tour of the highlights of the newly redone home. And the first lady spoke about her ideology for the whole process saying quote this house will grow and should it just seemed to me such a shame when we came here to find hardly anything of the past in the house hardly anything before nineteen to the administration of President Jimmy Carter moved the White House into the future in two significant ways one, the mansions first computer system was installed and to solar panels were installed heat the facilities water there's panels were short lived initially they were taken down during the Reagan presidency although the George W Bush administration put them back. So that is we we are going to conclude four today. In our second part coming up next time around we're GonNa talk about the gardens, and then as I mentioned, we're going to talk about how much all of these things we've talked about really hinged on the work of in slave. Labor So in the meantime I'm going to read a delightful email. As a balancing act so it's not all all serious, but I do hope that in hearing all of this in particularly like that the White House has burned out completely been taken down to the STUDS, etc. People realize like it is not a static sacred cow. So to speak something shifts and changes, that's just how it's always meant to be from the beginning. But the email I wanna read is about something completely different, which is an older episode, the Limerick. Soviet. It is from our listeners Serena i. hope that is how she pronounces it and it makes me think of dream of Jeannie Serena rights. I am a recent listener since finding your podcast I've been listening every day I really enjoy the way you present information in a way where I can listen actively.
"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..

"Don't forget that. At least one of these characters Kamala Harris is running for president the last thing she will ever do as part of that bid as seed to any Trump nominee for the supreme court. There's also a danger here that the White House is going to submit the nominees who aren't as qualified by the principles of the president has has stated the nominees that were non of these three nominees. We talked about we're vetted under the White House process in the last two years. They have strong pedigrees both in terms of legal experience and beliefs in the principles of original interpretation of the constitution. And it is true that in the past the White House, white houses have consulted, home state Democrats. If it's a Republican president or vice versa. If Democrats in the White House to say, all right? We're going to nominate this person. What do you think? And you know, you could see some kind of deference it's usually done at the district court level less at the appellate level because those nominations have become polarized ideologically as well. But these Democrats what have they done Kate? I guess would be my question to earn this kind of concessionary negotiation with President Trump. I mean, have they voted for any Trump nominee who who was at all controversial now nave done nothing to that. Goodwill. And like like, you said there's no guarantee air even probability that they show it at any later point. When it really matters. I'm skeptical that that really looking for a deal at all given the conditions..

"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..

"Good even more while the ones about Muller and the screaming contest. What's it based on? I thought the weirdest one this week was when he said the people in Florida, they vote then they go back to the car, and they changed their shirt and are hat, and then they go back and vote. You know, I'm reading that one. You know, I'm reading. To by box of cereal where I only need an idea when I buy a box of wine, but here's to set the record, right? You're still Carter now. Full disclosure, president has come out and said all this talk about him being in a foul mood. He says that's fake news. So everything's good things refine the administration's going well, the palace intrigue is overblown. But I really do you really do have to think when you look at how the last month has been he has been out doing rallies in front of his adoring fans, which that would be fun to do. He enjoyed that those were done. The Muller investigation is coming home to roost, and these factors in addition to not do not having a great midterm that has to be bothering him that has to be playing on this mind. And I as much as he likes to say everything's quiet on the home front. These factors have to play play at all. If he is angry what's going to change. What's going to turn it around? What's going to get him back of the house? Democrats. Just listen to all this. And I gotta say other than media claiming that he's angry. I don't see evidence that he's angry me. Right news sources right here in the sources. Set me on gone off China. I never get angry. Okay. Good. White House or telling not just telling men reporter that he is. Here's here's here's what I'm saying. What I'm seeing that? There were number things. We're not talking about that very successful this week. For example, a rarity nowadays in Washington. He did something together with the Democrats and by partisan way that doesn't often happen. These days successful in prison reform other positive things. Simply. Give me great things. And and you know, the the media prefers to talk about this other narrative, it's fine. But the truth is, I think he's doing great. I think that the midterm elections. We picked up in the Senate, which is highly unusual. It's really rarity in the last century the losses in the midterm were much less than anticipated much less than a me, generally happen, royals, all you want. But that's the truth. It's not much of the Clinton gotten their first term. And so the truth is here's lots of happy for and is he is brash tough guy. He show Inskeep. But that doesn't necessarily mean these angry. Can we just for the record? Okay. It looks like forty seats in the house, though, more seats and Democrats picked up since Watergate the Republican margin. Donald Trump said the day after there's always going to be fifty five it looks like they're going to be fifty one or fifty two in the Senate Democrats picked up seven governorships seven state legislative houses, three hundred seventy two state legislates legislative seats. Chef it was a blue way. Interesting compared his pickup to a two other pickups. Let's compare it to Obama's and Clinton what their losses right Clinton evolves. Sixty three. Imperative is just I just say totally gumming sense common sense would tell you when you see it flip. It's not a good day. And that's the way it is. It's a Blue Wave. It's a bad day. Is it the worst day? No, he kept the majority in the Senate. But don't try to tell me it was a good day. I didn't say this was a red wave. I'm just saying. About their together. This panel and the best quote of the week. From do when he doesn't like the outcome of an election. He talks about voter fraud voter fraud that if you look at the evidence there is no evidence up with this quote. I've had friends talk about when people get in line. They absolutely have no right to vote. Then they go around in circles. Sometimes I go to their car. They put it on a different hat. They put on different shirt, they come in and vote again, you who are these friends are telling him about these frontier radio conspiracy theory of people putting on its bizarre.

So you are obviously the heel for the president in your now, part of his narrative and part of his storyline, right? How does that affect you in your work? Knowing that you are a character in this plot arc as well? I mean, I think for a lot of us it's uncomfortable. I mean, it's weird to even talk about it right now. It's just instinctive like you don't want to talk about it as if our character. But when he does things like called individual reporters or institutions, you have no choice. He's the president and he's dragged you into it. And you know, I think a lot of reporters and like I haven't always been perfect about it to like, we will tweet things that will say, well, look at this. You know, the flags are up at the White House, but they're down at the monument. Wow, this is jarring. And you know, that's people in the White House watch that. And they take that as at a to'real ising and you know, I, I do think to be perfectly honest and transparent. Like reporters are humans too, and like sometimes they cross the line in the White House pays really close attention to that, and and they, it builds their argument that we. Are willing to be characters and crossed the line before. Do I think I have on Twitter, maybe. I think there was one time I I I did and it was something about reproductive rights. I think just to be honest, I think I just re tweeted something and I was just, I was like, I'm I, I think what I did was I said something about, I'm from a rural area. My high school had a daycare. We had absence only education. I worry about the women and children in those communities having access to education and services. And you've got some blowback. Yeah, it's just kinda like it. People watch you so close. It's hard to do. We do in this era where the president has made to pursuit of truth a partisan enterprise. Do you know what I mean? So I think now more than ever it's really incumbent upon reporters Katie saying to not let yourself be come part of the story when they're yourself, be baited, like, don't let they, and that's something he understands to is the art of the bait and the. Visors who helped him write as tweets or get like they all understand that. And it's really easy for them to get. I mean, there are a lot of reporters in Washington covering the White House and not everybody is perfect all day long. And you know what? I try not to do anymore on air. I try not to in this really, really fix broadcast. I don't read the tweets anymore. I try not to the full tweets stuff that isn't part pertinent the Trump tweets. Because in the beginning, you know, cable news, it's another tweet from the president. Let me read all four, four of them. And so now filled with untruths, the stuff that's not edifying or true, I don't try. I don't try to give voice to. I only try to stick to the pertinent stuff, and that is my way of trying to stick to what is real, what is true and to not get baited into whatever. Yeah. I mean when he drags throughout the lacrosse strategy such like it's like, okay, you know back to work, you know, you know, speaking about like not being baited as members of the press because they wanna bait, I think so long and hard about one particular White House correspondent at. CNN Jim Acosta who was taken up this enemy of the press back and forth as his cause. I in my heart of journalistic cards, think that's not the right way to handle it. Are there conversations about the right way to handle the enemy of the press stuff and how much you should be in that storyline amongst the White House press corps. You know, every every administration seems to have that reporter who is sort of known as being the thorn in its side, right?.

"And then I just say it like as of this moment, here's what we know this could change, but you know things in this White House. Things are true until they aren't true. How much is that? How different is that from the last administration? Oh, it's night and day. I mean, I remember during the Obama administration, you would get a. Sense of how the week was going to play out on a Sunday. They would get well, not the whole schedule, but you'd get a good road map. Yeah, they would use the Sunday shows to message. You know what they wanted to talk about that week where the agenda was headed, and I'm there was some White House staffers in the Obama administration who would apologize for last minute changes to the schedule. I'm very sorry to have to do. Yeah, exactly. And that's just not the way in granted every White House takes on sort of the personality of the president. And so we know the president enjoys chaos. And so this White House in just the way to operate is chaotic and that it becomes. Staffers don't. Oh, for sure. I don't. I think that they have learned to live in it. Do they ever tell you off the record or indicate or show any emotion that would indicate that they aren't happy? Are deflated are tired? Our weary that they, I don't. I don't get that feeling a lot. I get the feeling that they feel like they're entrenched warfare, and I feel like they really believe that the president has accomplished a lot on behalf of the people who voted for him. Okay. You know, they can live with tax cuts. They like that. They like the relocation of the embassy to Jerusalem oughta folks like the two economy's doing well, yeah, a lot of people do, but a lot of people are also going to be hurt by that. So you know what he hasn't delivered is this wall that he largely, you know, ran on and whatnot. So I think that those staffers feel as they reflect the president's grievance that the press has not given him enough credit and that's energizing for them. I think. And you know what's different about that versus other administrations, because every White House has staffers that feel beat down just by the car. It's different though in having talked to people who worked for George W Bush in president, former President Obama is that those two men, I think, engendered loyalty and inspired. There's Daf in a way that Donald Trump does not. So whereas I feel like a lot of the people in the current White House are driven to a certain degree like by the kind of grievance you talk about and by some of the president's policies, I don't necessarily at least in my conversations, get the sense that they are driven to do their best work on behalf of the man in who sits knee Oval Office in the same way that people who worked for President Bush no vomited will part of point. This is part of a strategy that right, like he is someone from his reality TV days in real estate days. He likes to have competing factions and interests. Yeah, working for him. And so like if you're doing that, you're actually aren't trying to inspire loyalty your. Trying to inspire competitiveness and that dick like another source in question. Like when you get leaks from sources, are you saying to yourself? Well, how is this faction of the White House trying to attack this other faction like the humor sent questioned sourcing, how do you work through that?.

"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..

"Katie Rogers, White House correspondent from New York Times. Thanks for being here. Oh, you're welcome. Jeff Bennett. White House correspondent for NBC news. Thank you for being here. It's a privilege. Fun fact. I worked with you both before and gosh, our paths diverged. But we're all living our best law. Yeah. So I was worried for the last two weeks about this conversation because I said, well, they cover the White House. And something happens. They gotta go. And then I was like, would I be able to do that thing? Or you know, when you're at dinner and someone's like, all right, everyone iphones on the table face down the first person to pick it up, pays for dinner. It was like, what's the radio of that? Well, for me, this is my day off. Oh. So I have to leave, which is why this data Katie is on full duty right now. I'll let you I had to take a few calls in the lobby on the way on the way up. You know, my phone rings, I might have to put us on speaker phone with with somebody source for that. But luckily just shout out to Michael shear, my colleague who's babysitting right now. Thanks, Michael. Yeah, in my absence. Yeah. How long have you both been covering the White House now? I've only been covering it since January. What? Yeah. Crazy crazy. So less than a year? Yeah, less than a year. I've been covering the White House for a few years. So I covered the end of the Obama administration for New York one, which is a well-known stationing dark line. And then when I came to NPR, was I a producer, but then a reporter I covered the White House for NPR for a few months and then jump. He's literally literally for a few months and then jumped to NBC news and I've been at NBC for eight months. Okay. Wow. So then my next question for you. Both is you've been covering the Trump administration, Jeff, since the start Katie for a few months in your time covering the Trump White House, what is the wacky craziest report. Story you guys can tell me without getting in trouble the story that you tell your friends at bars when they ask how crazy the job is. Oh. I had a story a couple of weeks ago that sort of illustrated to me how involve the president is in coverage about him, which is not unusual presidents care about how the media covers them, but I was on the Europe. Did you go on the uptrend? So I was on the Europe trip in. I got a heads up from a source at the White House who just had this Email that showed that he got on the plane at some point during the Helsinki Trump and freaked out because the first lady's TV was tuned to CNN and Lang threw a fit and now in got the military office involved like to make standard operating procedure, Fox News on all the TV's going forward. I mean, pause you real quick. You're saying Donald Trump was so mad that his wife was watching a network other than FOX that he changed the protocol. Yes. What I'm not clear on whether she was sitting in her area watching it was tuned to it was on and he flipped his lid. And I came in possession of a string of emails saying, oh, that story. Yeah, I just standard operating procedure going forward in the hotel suites, and that was actually confirmation at they sleep in different rooms to like first lady. Sweet sweet. I guess the wildest in the press cabin on Air Force One. It's all you can watch his Fox News..

"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..
"white house" Discussed on CNN's The Daily DC
"Hey, everyone welcome back to the daily DC. I'm David challen CNN political director. I'm joined in studio this week by my colleague Jeff Zony he's CNN's senior White House correspondent Jeff. I you heard me say as we were talking the first half of the podcast that I thought that the security clearance issue of revoking John Brennan security clearance and putting a list of other people who are now on morning that their security clearance may be revoked. I thought it was a pure distraction from the Manafort trial headlines that clearly the White House is not all that happy about, obviously from what we were talking about about Marissa's book in her charges, but that didn't make the sort of assault on first amendment rights to be critical and speak your mind if a president, any less chilling, it's still there while it may have been a tactic. There was a a subset of ramification here of what so many national security professionals have said, could be dangerous, chilling effect. On lower level folks who don't feel the need, feel comfortable speaking out against a president's policy decision? No question. And I think it absolutely was an attempt to change the subject. This is something that the president didn't suddenly decide this week, and we know that because of a bit of ham-handedness inside the White House, the statement from the president that White House press secretary. Sarah Sanders read to us in the briefing room and then released a printed copy later happened to be dated July twenty sixth, which is three days after they initially a raised the specter. This possibility three weeks ago didn't rand Paul voting this, oh, down to the White House or at least talk to the president. I believe by telephone at the time and said, you know, you should revoke these security clearances. So that letter was written three days later on July twenty six. It was announced this week, and then the president sort of complicates things even more by telling the Wall Street Journal in an interview that he was thinking about doing this last week, but he was too busy in Bedminster. Well, he played golf multiple times. The clearly had time and it was through this. I think that was the word perhaps internally it was. I mean, I would actually believe that, but I think the reality here is that what happened? If you take stock of what has happened by the end of this week by doing this, this is something that I think is. I mean, we've not seen before so many former national security officials, intelligence directors, Republican administrations, democratic ones have come out now by the end of this week in opposition to what this president did. So the list of critics who have very high credentials in high credibility is much longer now at the end of this week simply by doing this..

"She's an amazing, incredible blanket statement to to make about the the, the reporting on on what's what's going on in his administration and what the policies that his administration has enacted are doing right, but, but that's no surprise. You know, I mean, the the, the media, bashing is catnip for him and his those are prize, but it's crazy. Well, yeah, but I mean, he's been doing it since the beginning. It's. It has produced tremendous dividends to him. I mean, it's a, it's a stock part of every rally. It's every appearance. He makes his part of his brand. And I mean, it's it's political gold for him. I mean, he spends political gold. Every time he hits the media. There is no constituency that vote. I mean, nobody wins votes by embracing the media. Nobody not at all, but you can win a lot of votes by beating the heck out of the media. And he is realized that and he's tapped into a lot of animosity towards the media and he will continue to do it, and it will be a huge theme in Israel action campaigns. Well, it's not just even the media though I feel like by him saying, don't believe what you're hearing or seeing is also a knock against, you know, the intelligence community that is saying there's inter. There was Russian interference in the election, which he has sort of disagreed with like it's just sort of undermining the media intelligence community agencies like anyone who sort of publicly disagreed with him. And I think it's really laying the groundwork so that when much more serious political things happen, like the results of the Mueller investigation, for instance. You know, he is in a position to have so undermined those institutions, including the media that you know, bunch of people including his basement, believe whatever comes out, you know, I was also struck listening to interviews with farmers. Other people who'd been hurt by the trade tariffs saying, you know these people who had supported Trump in the first place saying, yeah, you know, I've lost some money. I'm hard shape, but I trust them, you know, I think this is gonna work out and it sort of gets at the same thing. Like trust me, I'm the one who's gonna take care of this for you don't believe all this other stuff. So it goes deeper than the media. In some ways it feels like, so Jason, how? How are you as as you report on the media in in Washington and elsewhere? What what are, what are you seeing happening in response to this? I think we're seeing some behavior behavioral changes in the way the the media react to the barriers that the White House and others are erecting in their way. Not not just in terms of, you know, the the relentless news cycle, I mean, and and the kind of relented. Reporting on it, but it like some tactical things like very, very kind of nitty gritty things. And just in terms of trying to find out information. Yeah, it does seem like journalists are banning together a little bit. I think it got a lot of attention. It was last week or the week before its time is sort of a plunder. Now, I don't even know where where Jordan, Fabian from the hill in a press briefing at the White House when how Jackson was trying to finish a question and Sarah Sanders was cutting her off Jordan's Senate back to her bay said, you know, finish this question. That was something a lot of people noticed as sort of a sign of like, okay, you know, the White House press corps is in this together, whether that's like a one time thing or going to be more of a trend, we'll see, but certainly saw a lot after Caitlyn Collins from CNN after she was not allowed into the event at the rose garden yesterday, you saw a lot of reporters speaking out in support of her Fox News reporters as well. So it does seem like at least for now, Nancy can probably speak to this better than I can that there's some sense of pulled together Charlie when you talk about the. The the political upside for for Trump of doing this do do you mean upside in terms of broader appeal? Or are you just talking about Trump's seemingly constant efforts to make sure that that core of his base however much it is stays tight?.

"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.
