Nineteen unemployment benefitsare set to expire and then DJT and covid. What is thisdjt thing with Covid Bullshit, okay bullshit? Here we go it's news, Jo and Ka, and Chris, a Katie has been cohosti every singleweek Chris she's been killing it yeah, you slacker,where you'v been he'she'Sgoo so sleeping for twelve hours a day. Yeah Chrissy needs a sleepy time. NOTS! Okay! Well, you know, since we don'thave a lot of time, we have to get to a guess: Let's just get right into ithere with the dirty deets and what's happening with the the Covid covidnineteen and the messageing coming out of the White House right now, Okin this week's most important stories.What is it what's happening here? Djt over the weekend said that ninety ninepercent of coronavirus cases were completelyharmless, quote totally harmless. It also tweeted today that China, virusesare down. Thirty. Nine Percent Wen o greatest testing program continues tolead. Ayao have to stop there like. He just said that diiaane percent are tototally harmless. Are you saying that that's a lie before we continue on? Yes,I'm not saying it, but experts are saying it's a lie. It is a lie. Well,compared to him. You are an expert, I think our eight year olds, Co, Acefig oure dog is a more of an expert, so ninety nine percent are not totallyharmless. We actually don't know. This is such aNogh virus. We now it's attacking, even if you're a symptematic, it's stilldamaging your lungs and you can have you know unknown side effects down. You know,through the course of your life, we have no idea Yiv Yo Goteadan article,the other day where they did autopsies of people who had died and they hadfound damage in people's in pretty much every organ of the body. NNCTHE dog didnot like what you said. Yea I mean like I, I don't eten strokes, it's causingseizures. It's I mean it's not something to screw around with likeit's. No, we don't know bodily herm to everything. Yeah I mean this is so muchunknown, you're right and we don't know about the long term effects like youguys are saying, and it's scary- I don't want this, I'm I amtrying to beas careful as possible right here with everything. You seems e, crazy, thatyou know you bring that up. You know trying to be as careful as possible,but you know they keep pushing. You know the message from the White Houseand Djt is, you know, reopen, go back to your live like everything's, fine,Ba Blah Blah and like we're doing it...

...like states are reopening, and now youhave hot spots in Texas and Florida, California, Arizona where they didreopen and now they they're having you know their hosscials are beginning tobe overram, IC, U beds in Floridan full and many hospitals in Arizona, Houston,Florida. California, that's the scary thing likepeople are like o. Who Cares? If I see you beds are being over taken by Covidnineteen patients, but what happens when you're in a motorcycle accident orif you're, walking down the street and you get blindsited by a bus, you'reGoinna have you're going to need an ice se you bed and there's not going to beany for you ehis. I then you get one. Not only are you hurt you go in and youcan track covid yeah o little covid on top of that thout that long recovery that you'regoing to get after getting hit by this imaginary bus that I made up yeah youknowas driving the bus. Mrs Frezzle, you know what else is crazy and not to get off topic, but like MajorLeague Baseball and the NBA, the Manmhl are all planning to Restar. That MLB isstarting later this month, where they're going to be traveling todifferent cities, and I think that's so stupid as ad a ton of players testpositive yeah. They are, they were moving forward like he had like a car,the country. When we have nearly three million cases, I watwas at Florida doubled the cases in a matter of a weekor two versus three months. Prior Wel I' tell you this I'd rather have acaravan of immigrants an I with a caravan of infected MLB players rightriding around them. Oe is that te mean it should be and Makor man to play thatthey don't know that hert immunity is like a thing, so they don't even knowfor a fact that if you catch this, that you won't catch it again that it likethe actually, the antebodies will keep you from being sick again exactly well.What else is coming out of h? What else is e new out of the White House? They're also saying that the virus is with us, there'snothing we can do so. We just onl need to live with yeahjuslit yeah. That'sthat's how we a I've done that for four years with Donald Trump and I'm dunbwith it. Okay get stop telling me to live with things. I don't want to livewith. Yeah Pay Your hospital bills with no job but enthey say live with it, butthey're, not. You know telling you to wear a mask when you're in public,which just live in one thing that we can do, don't you feel like we're alljust being sacrificial lambs for the elite in this country, like they don'tcare. Absolutely. How are you feeling about all this Tris Arey? Okay, I mean yeah, it's it's scary, it's I it's exactly what I thought was goingto happen when we started reopening, because we never really we've leatend the curve so to speak,but it we never really got it to bend down. So all we did was PLATSO and westarted opening up everywhere and cases started to go back up and all the datathat we're looking at because it takes like seven to ten days or whatever itis for Covid to a person Ho become symptomatic.All the data that we have is always at least a week old, so everything we're looking at is areflection of what the reality was. Last week, everything that's comingdown the pipe. You know like what the reality is today is already you knowworse than than the data would suggest. So it's very dangerous precipice and you know yeah yeah, scary, yeah, hes, an Ou. Youbring up a good point to that. We just plattod. We didn't fly an if you lookat other countries around the world where they were successful andflattening the curve to where you know the number of Cape New cases per day,like Florida's tripling the number of new cases that the eves saing is th't.A lot of these countries adopted payment to their residents, theircitizens. You know multiple thousands of dollars per month for them just tostay home tothousand dollars a month. That's a great great segue into ournext segment, which is the extra six hundred dollars that Americans havebeen receiving. An unemployment benefits ends at the end of the monthand what is being done about it? Dirtydeeds continue no at this week's most importantstories, great time to take a recess...

...congress, because on the thirty firstthat is when the extra six entyolars a week of unemployment that Americanshave been receiving through the cares, act, exspires and failure to act beforethe end of the month, Wi'll strip, more than twenty milliond twenty millionAmericans of nearly eight hundred and forty two billion dollars to spend it'sa lot of money, that's not going to go into the economy, that's scary, yeahyeah, I think spending in May was up, and a lot of t was attributed to thestimulus checks and this extra unemployment benefit. So ifnothing's done about Thi the lucky people too, that got to getunemployment, so many people are left without it. A lot of people had different thingshappen to them and they weren't eligible or people are you know if they? If they had likesalary, ductions or different things happen there? Sometimes you couldn'tcollect unemployment or people are just waiting to be paid that haven't beenpaid. It's arting the file tyea waiting to beable to file even yeah, because they're totally backlogged, which wouldn't makesense to hire these unemployed people an have them work in the unemploymentoffice right. Stop it that's! Okay, ytaklogicalbut djt is against exextending this six hundreddolars a week past July, saying that it givesAmericans a disincentive to work. You'd make moremoney. If you don't go to work, he says I'm SI over rich people. I know. Oh, ifyou have an extra six ornty lars a week, you're not goingto want to go bustables. We I'm so were rich people, loand Bar, let's Se him, let's see howhe would be with six hundred dollars a week, as is O. I would love to see that,but this is like thiis. I Hotan gave him that allowance. What do you think there's one thing about wethat aboutRepublicans is that they all have the same. Talking point they're really goodat that and the Turtle Moscow Mitch is saying the same thing I that if wecontinue with the with the people getting the sexor six hundred dollars aweek, then they're not going to want to go back to work by the way MITCHECconnalls worth on the upper end of the estimate, fifty five million dollars as a public Servan like that was hiscareer yeah. I mean let's Lat's like really behonest about this. He hasn't been like the best public servant, he's beenpretty fucking shady, so I'm going NA say he made a lot of money on the backside of that. I think weare implying that here's what he said, here's aquote from the turtle unemployment is extremely important and we need to makesure for those who are not able to recover their jobs, unemployment asadequate. This is a different issue from whether we ought to pay people abonus not to go back to work. That was a mistake. I'm a turtle, I'm a turtle, bturb turtle, thirtle yeah. So that's where the Republicanssay on the issue. They don't think that we should continue to inject that moneyinto the economy, because if we all have an extra six hundred dollars aweek to spend, we will never want to work again. Meanwhile, by the way there was a provision in thecareact tarisact that actually changed a tax law for millionaires making it,so they can claim about a hundred and actually one point, seven milliondollars on their taxes. They get back after this care's act was so so, inother words, MIS mcconnall gets two million dollars. Some are getting anextra six hundred dollars a week and he says that's too much after he gets twomillion dollars mwhat about the folks that were workingtoo, how about them? EDDIE IO! You thing youwork through this whole thing like. How do you feel I'm very lucky and fortunate that Ihave a job ut on pins and needles? At some day I wan't yeah. I think that'show we all feel I'm not getting an extra two milliondollars, I'm not getting an extra anything, and I don't know it we just W at. We needto keep C supporting people who are unemployed right now, because this isnobody's fault and that's what the Democrats aresaying, Chuck Schumer. He says he wants to extend the unemployment benefit ofsix hundred dollars and Bernie Sanders even laid out a plan. He says that hewants to extend the six hundredolar per week, expand Medicare to cover thoseuninsured and send a two thousand dollar monthly check to every workingclass American in the United States and...

...cancel all written mortgage paymentstil the pandemic ends so at. In other words, it's never going to happen and top bilding out corporations. Youknow if we quit giving money to fucking rich people, then poor people couldsurvive at that's a excellent point. I don't understand,but I thought we're supposed to hate. Poor people, maybe have you ever seen: Tha Memof, PaulRyon thit's like him with the like powerpoint presentation up, but it justsays just stop being poor yeah, I thinkthat's an Fiithusanatwelve of why don't poor people just buy more money? I think that's like an official GOPstance. If you go to their website yeah right, fuck them, but we really are looking ata really devastating situation. If this six hundre dollars isn't extended, thisbenefit. There is an economist and he says that it's critical, his name isMatthew Luizetti. He actually works for Doysha Bank. I don't trust them so, butDoysha Bank is saying that we want h that this guy, who works Ta Dosh Bank,says that we should continue like the yeah duchebank. I mean. If Dusha Bankagrees, I don't know, but he says t if we don't, then we'relooking at I mean people are already starting to be evicted this month,because that ban on evictions is now expired as of July first, so we have and that's going to just getworse, we're going to look. I mean like what the Hell is going on here. whear we about to like really like gointo like Madmax or ma feels like Wuere de going down that road and that'sliker lining yeah that I'm not exaggerating like it does feel. Likeyou know, at the Stopia. I know Chris saw this coming, but I didn't I did you saw this. It's prettyterrifying, where we're going right now. I think the most terrifying thing isthat have like, I feel, like half of America. Just doesn't pay attention, sothey just don't realize like what truly is going on and how close we are tothat edge right now. You know, I think they sense these. They said this halfof America, that's not paying attention, I think they sense the despair and theydon't know how to process it. So they take out that anger on stupid thingslike not wearing masks. I think there's like this. A reallyfucked up thing going on right now, something I don't know, but hey Christmas wil, behere in a few months it's going to get worse like before I gets better at I reallylike. We all have to buckle up, because this will get worse. I agree. I know Iknow how are you I really hope not, but I think that it will, because Congressdoesn't look like the thet mean they haven't done anything with Moscow Mitchin charge for the people. They've appointed federal judges, that's aboutall they've done in four years Yel! Thank God. We can get rid of him andtrumping a few months. Figures Cross singers. Everybody vote vote becauseyour lives depend on vote od or check your rig ginerally vote voting. Youlive in Kentucky you better. Do the right thing do not vote for maccom. How do we fix this? Chris is all Li. The GOP cares about becausethe judicial branch, all the Republican Partyan cares about, is tearing downand the most effective way to do that is through the tadiciary through youknow, peals courts and all that kind of stuff where they arejust able to tear down at's, already been built up. So why are you staying?How do we? Are you saying that the Party of laworder wants to tear down the judicial branch w now? That's all they care about anold raditial branch, ohbecause they're able to tear din on the rest of thegovernment like tear down laws and- and my question was sory frend. I wasbeing sarcastic. I said that but and they're not termed either, thoughlifetime appointments. So Chris, I have a question if we have, if we have control of this Senate, theHouse and the White House, and then you have all these judgesappointed and like say they pass an abortion law that makes abortion Llegal,no matter what in every state and they can open playing parenthoods whereverthey want or whatever, and they try to strike that down, and it goes toappeals courts. But like we have...

...control the White House and the Senatein the House and there's like an executive order written from the WhiteHouse, can a judge in a lower appeals court override that yeah absolutely and then I would kickedup to the Supren court and then the SPRIMG core ultimaly would have the final say. The only check and balance the executive and the legislative wouldhave over the courts is the power to impeach in a room of judges which wouldbe you know very contrersial, because you know it would be. You know that the power is intended toremove judges who man specific, like ethical breeches or, like the president.You know like breaking more nd, not just as a means of getting hid ofjudges appointed by the Position Party, so it would be very controversial purgeand that's assuming the Denecradit party would have the you know the stomach to do that. Movein the first place, bwait back up Chris. If Congress passes along the presidentsigns that law, the the fatthe the judiciary has to youknow they have to listen to that law right. They they use that law to basetheir judgment, so they can't necessarily overturn a law but of anexecutive order is where the president goes Cilla without Congress. That canbe up for debate, but if it is sun, if it is passed by both House and Senateand signed into law by the President, the Judicial Branch can't overturn thatlaw. Right absolutely can it's question: They can overturn it if theysay it's a violation of the constitution, which is to say that theyhave made a judgment that the neur law is in contradiction to the original law,the founding law and is an effect boid, the Basie Tis, what they basically saw that Democratswere going to be taking over, because we have way more voter power now and so they'reloading up the judicial branch because they just because their fashion returneverything that we do from now on. Guy Atillery, how are you hi, Ele, hello, WEU're on the air?What's going on? Tey Hey, so I was thinking about theabortion load that you asked about. It's kind of like marijuana laws, sosederally Manwano Soelego, and if I get caught with weed by the feds, thentechnically I can still get in trouble, but I can buy weed and smoke weet andhave weed in Denver. Fame kind of is the same with abortions.If the country outlaws abortions, hat a statedecide T's. Okay, then, if the fedsal ever plan parenthood, you can get introuble, but do understand correctly, like I feel, like that's that's kind ofthe way it works like the state still gets to decide. I don't know on down a RATTL HOL herewith this conversation Welso, we, like deed, a legal scholar Iwant to talkabout this. Our guesss coming up is AVA PUZAVA andshe's running for Congress in Arizona's, first district on its thes to us. Don'tgo anywhere news to us. LETN two thousandandtwentyoverag, it's Tuse to us back, live on AB radio. Welcome back to the show, we're veryexcited to have our guest joining us on this episode. This week, EVA PUTSOVArunning for Congress in Arizona's. First district welcome to the show hello, El everybody, Helo yeah, I think everybody's doing.Okay. Is Everybody doing good? I want to speak for everybody else, I'm doingokay, Great Yeah, Mwer Grea! I mean how great can we really beduring this time? I mean it's kind of a strange time. Isn't it not kind of it is? Are you doing okay, the Roing enty revolutionary CMT? I guess I know it'sso much is happening right now. How are you holding up well? This is the final threat for ourcampaign in this primary cycle, and so I m both excited and anxious to deliverfor all the people in eize that SARS Thi trig e Wan to see a yew progestocongress and people who are not corrapted and not bod by corporatingtred to represent their interest. I...

...mean why, should they democracy workfor the people? That's not the America that I know that's weird yeah quazy tout right! Yes! Well, let'sconsider you just a little bit before Weu jump into your policy, so you wereborn and raised in Slavakia correct, that's correct! Actually it was thecheck of Polagia before and then ou kN W, since onethousand nine hundred and ninety three awefor Lak Yeah Ani don'tnow, when you moved here, howold were you when you moved here? I sorry, I think got cou cut off yeah, soI actuall was born and raising. I went to college N in a colap and so IV livedhere all my adult professional life after college, and so I was sent totree when I actually permanently move to arivolna backing two Thousan. Okay, I would imagine that Slavakiaback when you were there is a lot like America now, with the way that there isa the distribution of wealth is with theone percent and all that you know and the working class not getting what theyneed. T. You probably seen a lot of parallels right. Well, it's very interesting because afir tune, one thousand nine hundred and eighteen nine. So I doing thePotolitari in he regime. According to the ruling party, everybody was equal,but of course some people were more equal, just like they are in thiscountry, and so even though you know they they essentially abuse. The US'sideology was exactly the same thing. A few people onthe very part benefiting greatly and disproportionally to the people who are toally worked,and so you know I do see these parallel hat you can. You know you can useideology and politics, but at the end it's just power it's about and that's what the Topolitarin regimeber one thousand nine hundred and nighty nine looked like formicly theregular people perspectil that you have these powerful alleves, who were doingvery well while the rest of the country was struggling, and here we have thepowerful elives who are tied to the corporate interest whore doing verywell, while so many people are toaly live in power, geting one of thewealthiest country in the country in the world. It's a daunting task to take that on Imean how do we even begin to do that, because when people are in power theydon't want to let go- and I know, there's a big grass ters movement goingon with people like yourself and the Democratic Party who are saying no tocorporate money and saying we're going to try to do it. Grass roots, I mean,is it I mean we're on your side? We want this to happen, but is itrealistic? Well, if it was nol the realistic forpeople back in one thousand, nine hundred and Eigehty nine in the formerEastern block to arise and to say enough, then you know wepere than ahead.I wouldnon't be here, and so I do believe that Yo ow there ha a pointwhen of people unite in their interestagainst those oppressors and in the concext of the American politics.Oppressors are the the wealthy corporate interest that are running ourcountry and they're running Al partings, and I do think that more and morepeople understand that it is exactly this institutionalizelegalize correption an be have to get the readolf and the only way we'regoing to get the Rido it is to replace the ruling at leastthose arepreventetives who actuallly care about the people and who can Nof be bought. I like how you call it legalizedcorruption, because that's what it is Yeh t's, what it is you know e, because corporations you know can to their pats, gives to politicians andessentially by them and while that we go that, doesn't make it right anddoesn't make it ethical and al the candidates and obthesid in Comben ashould not be taking thait money, and I think we have to call the what it is.Let's talk a little more about you, so I do want to ask about a little bit ofyour, so you did or city counsel and...

Flag Staffon. I ask you about that in asecond, but we like to get to know our candidates that we talk to on theshow a little bit more. Personally I mean do you have any irrational. Youhave any irrational fears like spiders or heights, or anything like that. I'm not too crazy about exposure,meaning, like you know, you're on a trail, hiking, upto, liklet's, say eve: Ionnational,Tart, onthe, there's a trail called angels landing and theres like athousand toteterop Abold, a big. So you know you have Fikin Therr Ow Trub, I'mnot completely crazy about it. I canot like do it, but I don't like theideadit areas like this gian drop, so I gess hi, maybe, but I don't think it'sHa Urationhalh, I think o' Ben Normal. No, that is normal, I think beingafraid of fights is actually normal. I don't understand people who make fun ofyou for being afraid of heights, because when you follow that from thathigh you're going to die, I think it's NTO BE AO. Right, yeah go hey, so I see that you yo know you havea lot of history working for essentially the least of us, people ofColor Indigenous people, and that's really fantastic. Now that we place Rnow that we're in the face of black wives matter- and we are- you knowrealizing- that doesn't just mean that we have to do one thing. So wehave one thing: we have to do many things to pull families out of poverty,to create in an equal wage and to you know, rally against a a someone who behaves as though he is adictator. In my opinion, how how do you see? How do you want to use your platform to to push toward equal rights for Black Live sequerrs for people of ColinHo Right? So I don't know if you guysthing, but there's this image, that circulaing on social media that tolthat illustrate what the difference is between Justice and equality, and it kind of shows a littleit that ar on a litto school standing to see overall the fence- and you know that' Ta be- is what we needto do. We do need to Axtol you undo the wrong of the par and to undo the the unequable opfortunity thatpeople used to have and still a to this day are affected by that inequality ina polise in official policy, we have to priortize o those populations that havebeen marginalive in where the money Goe, and you know, I always believe, believethat you can look as whether its city orcountries budget and you look how the funts are distributed, and you see thepriorities and the values of the country or the city, or you know yourschool. It doesn't matter- and I think that's what we have to do- is to really put money where our verbalized values are and then means totose communities that have been denied access to everything and than have been. You know not just margina lie but reallyoppressed that you know they have been encurserating and criminalizing for all kinds of reason that the would not criminalizeand cursthe rat the wit population. So it's you know, I think it's at the endof the day, whether its ad, the local, U N, federal, Statlovel, it is in thebudget, and that's where I will be focusing on when you lanted, it seemsRepublicans Thinkr Cure. I mean their values are more in line with whatAmerican Airlines stock looks like than they are with the people of thiscountry. It's just so discussing what's going on, so I commend you for nottaking any corporate money and we've been talking to a lot ofcandidates who aren't doing that and just as a general's question, how isthe campaign going? Are you feeling confident that you can win he primary well? We are very optimistic...

...because, not just because you know wellike to say that weare atolistic, because they do want people to deleavein this compain, but because of the Betim, the numbers and so before, O thePandamis. So before time, the beginning of March, when things Stari Tue shut down bin Nock onSeventeenhsanddoar, we dialed hundred sixty osand pones as well. I guessyesterday and we have a dispontraise more money than AC trase backing twothousand and eighteen havbeing into her first primary, and so I do think thatthere are some indicators connected Tobu to Ou Campai that you know makes they make us feel goodabout where we are- and you know they have been having so many conversationswith avoters, of course, on the phone and the response is overwhelming. LayPositive and Wey have just few more weeks to go to kind of keep, pushingand making sure that people know what the choice is. Really. It is about thatto make sure that people know that they have chose between a lifeom Republican whowitch part os into Thousandan. Sixteen tat Yo, like it o Congress as aDemocrat and then voted with trunk, fifty four percent of the time, so theyhave a choice to vote for me as a person who has never been anything butDemocrat in her life. Somebody who has raised a local minimum wage to fifteenHOUA and fifty cents here in flivt that seemody, who was instrumentally,passing a local climate action plan and who will fight or retualing Ou recolonmy away from fotalfume and somebody who will fight for universal healthcare for Medicare for all and so that thechoice and Yeu want. Everybody can know that and you so you're saying that youropponent was a Republican and and switched partis. So he's almost like aninfiltrator becaus he's voting with E. Are you are you you accusing him ofthat and like officially, or is that EAN Knoi'mecause? I we, I yeah I', knowere ther, Lov ty, to point out the fact. My oppement has been a republican statelegislator from two thousand line, so two thousand and nine he acso evotedagainst marriage equality and to criminalize abortion as a state,republican or presentative, and since Hewhich shes witsh the parties to runin this Distrak in the two thousand and Sixteen Cycle Anbut, he doesn't witchhis value, so hese values are very much conter bose and he does recently aboutten days ago he signed on a Lifeer wit, bunch of Republicansarlaying out the plant to Cat Social Security and Medicare of the the kind of policyis not even talkingabout no supporting to expend social security, but actually planning on catanget and to me, Thatuinvolve that's, not a Democrat that doesn't sound like a demograt. At all. Shame on you, Tomo Helleren, shame on.Am I don't even want to put it. I Don'even want to put his name out yeahgo ahead. Sorr Cano go AA. What can people do if they wanted to maybe makephone calls for you or send postcards for Hewo or yeah the best thing? Yes, Bu. The best thingis, we have a super, easy wutsite to remember and it's my first name, whichis Avo Eva evaftfor Congress com and there is a botton tat Bo, says, volunteer to signup and we have shit. You can help us with fonbanking and the other way you can help us is tofollow as on quiater. And if you have a spare cash, we still are raising moneyto do radios all of the NAAL nation, whichis you know it super needed, and so there's a little donate button. Butendup for Congresscom will take you everywhere, where you need to go greator help bout. Everybody go to Eva for Congresscom, one final question or ifanybody else has one to I guess, but won't final question for me is so youyou were. Actually you worked your elected to the flagstaff city councilback in November of two thousand and...

...fourteen, and I was just wanting: Didit feel like you were on an episode of Parks and recreation? Yes, O were week after week for fourlong years. You know wbeg e thing lit consil, andthese were the longest four years of my lifefor. I had the longest eighteenmonths of my life on this cimpige. But yes, I were you know not the everypolicy. Conversation is exciting and there are a lot there's a lot ofconversation about zoning calls, which is actually veryinteresting, but it can be a little dry. Well Yeah at least you've got Chris Pratt and AmyPolard. It hang out od littl, Amy Pauler. You know talkingabout amy polar when we read our LoC of citizen in EAATER, raising qite ofminimum wage to fifteenoar and fifty cents. Amy Color did alto video for ourcampaign. Okay, actually upporting, as in a defending that inditaat e lit tobe successfully Pavin two thousand and sixteen because, as you probably canimagine, ae Inyo do something good, there's some corporate interest that wants toundo it because we were fighting into Thozan and nineteen an so amy. Pallergracious deleted a nice local video telling people, voters and flit Ta toknow to repeal the minimum wage law Tan, because, yes es tat that you were Abeto do that, yeah, really cool good job, that's a great minimum wage yeah and if, if Minalon right, you knowit's not still living wage. This is the Bard of the very lowbar and we need tokeep raising it yeah because the businesses are not going to do it ontheir own and voluntarily no mean it' betters in the seven fty or whatevermost states are giving so beyond. Possity wages, yeah AVA forCongresscom. Thank you again and we're looking forward to seeing your victoryand we will hope to keep in touch with you yeah. Thank you so very much for havingme and have a great evening you to thank you anything you to capaign allright, look at that right onthe twenty minute mark, Lak, proswe right back, all right! WE'RE BACK! It'sthese to us and something that we like to do occasionally on the show is simply read something that gdjc hasactually said. If you, if you look at the transcripts of what he says, itbecomes more and more bizarre when he's speaking like his cadence is almostsyptotizing and you just think okayhe's kind of a weird guy. But when you seewhat he said in text and then read it back to yourself, you are just you, don't know what to think there. So who wants to be trump, Iguess Christan hilly, don't have the script between Katy and Jason, whowants to be the trump on this? Okay, you dedoyou. Have it all ready togo over there? We do okay, a Dou, its news to US present real transcriptof something bunker. Boy said this is foe. You know what I wanted to. I wanted to hit a couple of thosespeakers so hard. I would have hit them. No, no! I was going to hit them. I wasall set, and then I got a call from a highly respected governor. I was GoinnaHit, one guy in particular a very little guy. I was Goingna hit this guyso hard as head would spin and he wouldn't know what the hell happened. Iwas going to hit a number of those speakers so hard. Their heads wouldspin they'd never recover and that's what I did a lot. That's why I stilldon't have certain people endorsing me. They still haven't recovered spoken like a true gentleman, but a scholar. I don't have no idea what the ell hewas talking about there s anybody what the fuck was that that was really weird: It's alwaysabout violence and hitting people at th. His point is always killing people orgetting people wine. Has He ever hit anyone? No now with those ton, bold Dihite anybody if he has hit anyone, it was the sucker punch and he fucking Ram,and it was son. No He's probably Hitin.

EITHINS is his wife. I his wife is the only person he sait.Sorry, I have to say that it's not even a joke, he's a fucking idion. No, you don't think she hits him. I wouldhope so I hope so, but we're not that lucky. Maybe that's. Why wears all theting, Lor in the bedroom there's no bedroom between those twoyeah? I don't think we promps around Djt. All that much yeahave their ownrooms noethink. He stands over him in someether and talks about how disgustedshe is until he cries and then she goes to bed. I think that's all that happens,but it's pretty sexual it based on past reports. He probably gets urinated on by someone- maybe maybe the dog though, because she'sprobably tired of it. They don't have a dog. Do They Oh yeah? They don't,because they're not likeable relatable in anyway were first family to notiindog dogs. Don't even like that motherBucker. He probably what does he have? What would what would djt as have as apet? That's an interesting carrit. I feel like a ferret, would fit him of alizard. He parent and teach it to praise him. evil. Bittingi, don't know that he canRelat Wene Tela. Oh, you did have a parrot herit ofarret, I was Gonno, sayparrent, because I don't know that Djt canactually relate to any other living being. So I don't think that he wouldever have a pet, like you probably like, have an imaginary weasel. You wouldhave to care for it and he can't care for anything. I think you'd probablywant a mountain line or something that it would die in two days, yeah. No, ifyou had a weasel, the weasel would Yo weasle its way through getting foodlike you, Wunn have to take care of it and it kind of is sombalic of him.Gadty such a terrible person anyways before Weu wrap up here, Iguess cony West is running for president, which is like the last thing we need issomeone like him with actual influence, because I mean he does, let's face itlike getting in and T. I know he wears that Magahad all thetime I feel like this is like a thingbetween him and trump to just take votes away from whoever the Democraticcandidite is because Idioo, maybe he'll, take the botes fromtrump. I don't think me will ithe blackRepublicans, but only the dumb ones and there's so few dumb black Republicansthat just isn't the thing that goes on. I don't think here's one thing do knowI don't what thing about Canye, though, is remember. He was staying next to Mike Myersduring that Hurricane Katrina relief broadcast, and he had this tio George WBush. She said the black people, the the less well off as slow as possible.I mean this: Is the Red Cross is doing everything they can? We already realizea lot of the people that could help arl at war right now, fighting another wayand they've, given them permission to go down and shoot US and subtled, but in even this many waysmore fofillyng devastating is the lasting damage to the survivors wirldto rebuild and remaining the area. The destruction of the spirit of the peopleof Southern Louisiana, Mississippi me up being the most pragic loss of allGeorge Bush. Doesn't care about black people and now conye West doesn't true that yeah, you thinkke religious side of the left?That's a little bit more socially conservative like not socially but fiscally conservative,so he might be bad for Joe more than anything else exactly. But let's Sa, I feel like that's whythis is like a thing between the two of them to just I like, because there's nochance in hell. He'd ever win he's trying to spit it split the black vote.If you want to be a conspiracy, therist is hat you're, saying Tia exactly hewould be taking votes from Dobriden. So I also think it's O for Canya. Don'tyou get a Tessa? Isn't that how it works, so that's kind of a draw. Well, this is e. Last time will mentionConyo West on this show, because you know, I don't think I don't think hiscampaign deserves any attention e'snot. Even on Anny Balace Y. I think it's to lieach yeah, exactlyrelon writing in certain states. You have to don't you have to put inpaperwork and certain states ges certain amount of time ahead,...
