i >> must loft near? >> i. >>? mister schiff >>. i >> mister argue? learn >>. i >> mrs. murphy? >> i. >> mister raskin? >> i. >> mrs. laura? >> i. >> mister kinzinger? >> i. >> as the chair recorded? >> mister chairman you are not recorded. >> i vote i. >> the committee originally subpoenaed then in several weeks back asking for documents and testimonies from the critical period leading up to the insurrection, which has been 286 days ago now. when trump supporters attempted to prevent joe biden from taking office. in his refusal, ben incited the
former president's claim of executive privilege. but of course ben was a private citizen on one six, and during the run up to that, committee says the investigation indicate that biden had advance knowledge about what was van for january six. and played in important role in formulating those plans. >> when you think about what we investigate a violent attack on the seat of our democracy. perpetrated by fellow citizens. on our constitution. in attempt to stop the certification of an election. it is shocking to me. shocking to anyone who would not do anything in their power to assist our investigation. >> mr. bannon stands alone in his complete defiance in our subpoena. this is not acceptable. no one in this country, no matter how wealthy, how powerful is above the law. >> mr. bennett excuses that former president trump wishes
to invoke some form of executive privilege. there is no conceivably applicable privilege that could shield mr. bannon from testimony. mr. bannon's, and mr. trump's privileged arguments do some howell appeared to reveal some and one thing. it suggests that president trump was personally involved in the planning and execution of january six. and this committee will get to the bottom of that. >> the committee's recommendation now goes before the full house which is expected to hold a vote on thursday. if it passes as expected, a criminal referral will then be sent over to the justice department, doj can then present the case to a grand jury and ben and could then be formally charged with contempt of congress. all of that takes time. as that issue heads to the house floor, president biden spends today pressuring his own party, democrats, to finally get behind his priorities. tonight the washington post
reporting biden told liberal democrats that he believes the deal on the new tax and spending proposal quote, between 1.7 five trillion and 1.9 trillion dollars, is a possibility. that is substantially less of course of the original bernie sanders budget agreement, which ended up to about three and a half trillion dollars. and tonight sources tell nbc news that the final reconciliation bill is expected to drop the proposal for tuition free community college that is a big one for biden to let go of. this evening the white house issued a statement on today's meeting saying that there is quote, broad agreement that there is urgency in moving forward over the next several days, and that the window for finalizing a package is closing. that is the important part there, at the end. tomorrow, expected to be another important day in democratic effort to get voting rights legislation through congress. senate majority leader schumer
is scheduled to vote for tomorrow afternoon on a bill that would set national standards for voting acts. today, he acknowledged democrats still need ten republican votes to cross over and move this forward. >> democrats are ready to work with republicans in good faith. if they vote to begin a debate on voting rights. >> and don't stop us if you've heard some version of this before. late today, senate republican leader mitch mcconnell predicted that the ten votes from his party were unlikely to cross over. with that, let's bring in our starting line on this tuesday night yamiche alcindor, white house correspondent for pbs news our, moderator of washington week, also on pbs. robert costa, rational reporter with the washington post, his latest book coauthored with bob woodward, peril, isn't its third week now on the new york times bestseller list. and a. b. stoddard, veteran washington journalist and associate editor and columnist,
at over at real clear politics. we yamiche alcindor, i'd like to begin with you and your beat. if we can agree that this is us witnessing the simultaneously death of irony and the death of consequence. it appears the one time committee is doing their leveled best in being as aggressive as the law would allow, the question is how closely this being watched? in that building you cover for a living? >> i might be, can you hear me now? >> that is so much better. >> my sense is that white house officials are watching very closely what is going on in the january six investigation, though they have their hands full with the infrastructure negotiations, and voting rights that are happening in the
senate tomorrow. but officials at the white house have said and it's very clear that president biden sees january six as a de stained in our democracy. he sees it as an extraordinary event that needs to be properly investigated, that is why you've seen president biden, as well as white house officials be very clear that the president in the biden ministration are waiting for these initial documents requests. any sort of executive privilege that the former president is making. these are absolutely being viewed very closely at the white house. let's remember that lawmakers are sending a message. here in voting on this contempt sergeant for steve bannon. this is really a warning for other people who wanted to defy and refused to -- following very closely. >> mr. costa, you reported on mr. bennett all over the years, including but not limited to your book. he is a lot of things. he is a platinum level gaslight or, he is one of the architects
of grievance, politics which is what we're witnessing. now tell us what it's suspected he had to do with the run up to one six. >> here is why man in matters for the january six committee. as our book documents, he was talking to trump in the run up to january six, december 30th, january 6th at the wheeler hotel steps away with willard giuliani. he is talking with trump about how to think about the six. how to pressure lawmakers. how to pressure vice president pence. you see a legal battle that we've revealed in the eastwood memo, which is to push pence to throughout electors. and to push the election to the house. but there's also the political battle which trump is coordinating, and with been, in conversations with trump show that trump was directly part of coordinating that and thinking it through. and that is why this committee wants to learn more about. it and that's why they cited those specific scenes in the
subpoena document. and benin so far is resisting the subpoena because he knows, as anyone would know reading the book, that the scenes show him talking with trump. and that is so critical to the story. >> a.b. stoddard, a dramatic moment tonight when liz cheney, as number two on the committee, got her around to speak. i want to play some of which she said for you and our audience. will discuss on the other side. >> almost every one of my colleagues knows that in your hearts, that would happen on january six, was profoundly wrong. you all know that there is no evidence of widespread election fraud sufficient to have changed the results of the election. you all know that the dominion voting machines were not corrupted by a foreign power. you know these claims are false.
yet former president trump repeats them almost daily. >> a.b., that was one of those you can run, you can't hide moments when you wanted to see it in realtime. the face of every elected republican who have to know that she is telling the truth. here's the question for you, how many anti bennett votes will there be on the republican side of the aisle in the house? >> i had a feeling that you were gonna ask that question, i just am going to be stunned. if any of them find any courage, i think they are going to rationalize a vote at the direction of their leader, to say that this is a partisan committee. because congressman king zinger, and congresswoman cheney are not real republicans. they are taking part in a partisan effort to attack people and -- this is in a fair process so
they can't abide supporting it in any way. so i think they are just going to see that it is an illegitimate vote to begin with. and right off. i will absolutely be stunned if anybody steps forward. to supported beyond the two that are on this site committee. >> thank you for your candor. though, i'm not so it's a message people want to hear. yamiche alcindor, biden's meeting with the democrats. the price of this bill is coming down and remind the good folks watching that that won't be greeted as good news by all the democrats. >> that is right, the president today spent a lot of time meeting with members in his own party to try and scramble together to really reunite his party, so he could get these infrastructure plans through. he met with house progressives, as well as house moderates, he also met with senator sinema, and senator manchin. what came out of this is he's been talking to white house sources. he put an actual top five
number, 1.9, to 2.2, around 2.2 trillion dollars. and that is about a trillion dollars less than what progressives were going for which is about 3.5 trillion dollars. that's what house progressives are saying when i was talking to them at the white house when i was talking to the president. they sounded optimistic. they sounded like they really wanted to get behind the strategy of the president that he was doing. he was calling him the mediator in chief, the closer here. with that being said, there are already some critical things that we know that are also coming out of the. bill some free community college, i'm, told are coming out of the bill. also paid family leads. the timing of that is going to come down to something from 12 weeks, to four weeks. there's also some other provisions that are going to come out. so this is a bill that is absolutely going to get some. don but the president has been saying for weeks that this has to happen in order to get senator manchin and senator sinema on the same page. >> so robert costa, do the democrats you talk to get the optics that, in effect, this is
ball game. obviously, the eighth inning comes up in 2022. the ninth inning comes up in 2024. this is for control, this is for all the marbles and they're not leading by many marbles in the house to name one chamber. and thus far, the presidents agenda has been crippled by blue on blue infighting. >> brian, i just keep thinking about a scene from earlier this week with senator bernie sanders, in the oval office, talking to biden, and saying to the president, you have to go big. transformational progressive agenda. and his argument sanders says privately to the president and of thursdays that in his view, authoritarianism is on the march in the united states. and that the democrats don't succeed in having a progressive transformational agenda it's not just about what happens in elections in 2022, in 2024.
sanders believes, and he says this in the book, that it will be about democracy in america, that the working class and voters who are persuaded by the siren songs of donald trump might not come back to the democratic party if they feel the democratic party is not providing them with what they need on climate change on infrastructure on these core issues. but that is a real test for the whole party, not the whole white house. >> a.b. because this is cable news, we are always allowed to speak of aaron's work, so tonight has me thinking of the american president and sidney allen wade and the fossil fuels bill, and the gun bill in how she lost out, i'm thinking who is going to tell doctor joe biden, community college educator, that the community college provision joins the list of things that is falling out of this bill because of the price tag. a.b., is there at least going to be a chance for republican
support if this car drives off the lot at a significantly lower price? >> no, if the two are combined, you won't see any republican support. if they are voted on separately. the physical infrastructure transportation package that received 19 republican votes in the senate, has a good chance of attracting some house republican votes. what is interesting is that nancy pelosi, said in a letter to her colleagues after the extended surface transportation, funding until october 30, one let's get this, done the sooner the better, to get those jobs out there. really pushing again for separating the bills. the president has stepped with progressives on carrying them. what is interesting is that today we woke up and it sounded like they would blow the halloween deadline, and now sounds like progressives were
convinced by the president at this meeting today that they have to make the halloween deadline because he is attending a climate summit where he insists on having a resolution. having passed these bills. if you had them separated, you would find republican support. if they were made combined and they could do this by sunday, you are not gonna see any republican support. and joe biden has known that these things are coming out on community college for a while. >> okay, it was a good chance to quote in any way. good thanks to three friends of this broadcast, our starting line on a tuesday night. yamiche alcindor, robert costa, a. b. stoddard, thank you so much folks for starting a. soft coming up for us, few riders know the target of tonight's house select committee vote better than michael wolf. he is standing by the join us now. and later what do we know about a potential new variant in the uk which sounds for all the world like our new streaming service. it is called delta plus.
ever wonder how san francisco became the greenest big city in america? just ask the employee owners of recology. we built the recycling system from the ground up, helping san francisco become the first city in the country to have a universal recycling and composting program for residents and businesses. but it all starts with you. let's keep making a differene together. it's moving day. and while her friends are doing the heavy lifting, jess is busy moving her xfinity internet and tv services. it only takes about a minute. wait, a minute?
but what have you been doing for the last two hours? ...delegating? oh, good one. move your xfinity services without breaking a sweat. xfinity makes moving easy. go online to transfer your services in about a minute. it's going to be quite get started today. extraordinarily different. all i can say this drop. in the world of policy that you have made this happen and tomorrow it's game day. all hell is going to break loose tomorrow.
just understand this. all hell is going to break loose tomorrow. it's going to be moving, it's going to be quick. >> the unmistakable role steve bannon played on january six is exactly what house lawmakers are fighting to ask him about. my next guest loved hundreds of hours with conversations with trump's former chief strategist, michael wolff, writes this in his newest book. two famous. and we quote, then understood that trump was crazy but a major audience, draw and the far right wing was naughty but delivered a significantly higher than average response rate. and to, that the working men in america had gotten a bum deal, and maybe benin could strike a positive blow whatever that might be on the working man's behalf from a luxury hotel with us suite. for more, the aforementioned michael wolf. author of three books about the inner workings of the trump white house. here to talk about his newest were, called, two famous. the rich the powerful the
wishful then it's, correa's, the dams. michael it's great to have you back on the broadcast. thank you very much for coming. and because of the news tonight, because he is one of your leading subjects, let's talk about steve bannon. his personal icon grooming grooming icon that he is. is he, is he the architect the designer, the builder just the cheerleader of one six? >> or none of the above. steve bannon is a man who does everything for an effect. in the effect is not necessarily connected to the reality. for steve to get up ahead of steam and start to announce that there's going to be a revolution in the streets the world is going to change, is actually steve's conversation
almost in almost every moment. that is, the making the cause and effect line, and this is what's going to be hard for the democrats in this, is never so clear. it's going to be the same with donald trump. all of these people are actors, their game is theater. their game is not action. nevertheless, without question, it is their rhetoric. and it's incredible rhetoric. that's what's bannon's. he's a genius in the rhetoric department. and so, all of the people who stormed the capitol, on january
6th, certainly took inspiration from bannon, and as well from the president. but, was steve and the president shocked by what ultimately happened? i can't say for sure. but i know them both very well and i would say, that they were pretty dumbfounded. >> quick follow-up before we move on, is he a coward at her? with any part of him want to come in face the music and try to give as good as he gets? >> steve, yes i would say he's a coward, but even that, i would maybe just say that he's a showman, and all that matters to him is the show. him at the center, him at the center of that show. >> all right.
let's talk about the book and i want to begin with the table of contents, to give future buyers an idea of what they're getting here. divided into categories and people. all of whom are famous enough to be called by their first names, just reading randomly. jarred, rudy, tucker, ronan, harvey, ariana tina, bloomberg, hillary, rupert. obviously they are tied together in this collection. and written about and published because of their fame. is there another single quality, they have in common? is it vanity for example? >> it's a need for attention. incredible amounts of attention. it's flying to near the sun. or more accurately to near the media son. and it's also, in every case, a
kind of genius ability, to use the media for their own ends. >> i've been trying to find ways to impart people how unbelievably intimate the transcripts are of a conversation between bannon and jeffrey epstein. with a cameo by epstein's lawyer and friend, i have never been so happy to have never known jeffrey epstein, though i feel now that i have a true sense of him in this book. tell folks how it came to be that you have literal conversations in the inner workings of the now deceased jeffrey epstein in this book. >> in about 2014, i had had a prior acquaintances amid with
epstein. he was involved with a group of people that i was involved with, trying to buy new york magazine. a failed bid. but in 2000, that was before he went to jail. when he got out of jail i did not see him, in about 2014 he called me and he said would you like to write a book about me? one of the things that seems to happen to me an awful lot, is people call me up in one a book written. considering the kinds of books i usually end up writing, i don't know why that should be but it is. and i said, i don't know. and he said, i will give you complete access. you can come whenever you'd like. you can be, and people always then say this to me, a fly on the wall. so, what's takes place in the
book is released several scenes in the last months of his life, as he and the people around him, more the people around him than epstein himself, start to realize that it's closing in on him, that there's no exit here, that he's not going to get out, and they start to, think what to do, and maybe how to make a plan, for him to strike a deal, or rehabilitate himself somewhat, or do something, and that's what, this happens inside his house in new york and inside his house in paris, and, through a combination of recordings, and what people
have told me, i think that i've been able to put together an incredibly accurate, and incredibly vivid picture of what took place in the houses that epstein almost never went out of in the last months of his life. >> and the aircraft as it comes into the airport in new jersey, with epstein, aware the feds are waiting at the bottom of the air stairs. we know how that story ended, we will not know how every story in this book ends, but they're all here. the book again is, called two famous, it's in stores starting today. wherever you buy books, we are grateful to the offer michael wolf for joining us to talk about it tonight. michael thanks, great to have you. >> thank you. >> the politics of accountability coming up next. whether an attack on democracy
or a party figurehead, who yet again finds a self centered way, to speak ill of the dead. d way, to speak ill of the dead d way, to speak ill of the dead noises,horns beeping,) (engines revving, cars hitting one another.) (sfx: continued vehicle calamity.) just think, he'll be driving for real soon. every new chevy equinox comes standard with chevy safety assist, including automatic emergency braking. find new peace of mind. find new roads. chevrolet. i want our witnesses to
for people living with h-i-v, keep being you. and ask your doctor about biktarvy. biktarvy is a complete, one-pill, once-a-day treatment used for h-i-v in certain adults. it's not a cure, but with one small pill, biktarvy fights h-i-v to help you get to and stay undetectable. that's when the amount of virus is so low it cannot be measured by a lab test. research shows people who take h-i-v treatment every day
and get to and stay undetectable can no longer transmit h-i-v through sex. serious side effects can occur, including kidney problems and kidney failure. rare, life-threatening side effects include a buildup of lactic acid and liver problems. do not take biktarvy if you take dofetilide or rifampin. tell your doctor about all the medicines and supplements you take, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you have kidney or liver problems, including hepatitis. if you have hepatitis b, do not stop taking biktarvy without talking to your doctor. common side effects were diarrhea, nausea, and headache. if you're living with hiv, keep loving who you are. and ask your doctor if biktarvy is right for you. understand something very plainly. if you are thinking of filing the path mr. bannon has gone down, you are on, notice that this is what you will face. if they failed to cooperate, we will be back in this room, with
a new report, with the names of whoever, else mistakenly believes, that they are above the law. well >> the gentleman from mississippi who chairs this panel has a warning tonight for anybody else planning to defy a subpoena, from the committee, intent on investigating january, sixth back with us again tonight. eugene robertson, pulitzer plies-winning columnist for the washington post, and bill kristol, author rachel thinker political, veteran of the reagan and bush administrations, editor at large, at the bulwark, bill and like to begin with you. i was thinking of you a few minutes ago, we were talking to a.b. stoddard, first of all, i'm curious, as to whether or not you think the committee is going hard enough, but also the conversation i had with a a.b., about liz cheney, her remarks tonight, made you harken back to the old days of all of five or six years ago, made you wonder if any republicans could
be shames into voting against bannon. knowing that what she was saying was correct. they don't really think the election was stolen, they don't really think dominion makes crooked voting machines, a.b. of course at me right by saying no that's not going to happen. >> i suspect, not but it will be another test of republicans whispering in private, of course they know better, but then of course voting the law will be one of two of, them but they will not hold anybody accountable for january, six that's the underlying issue, for nine months now. we've had repeated attempts by the republican party, not to look at january, six not to hold anybody accountable for january, six not to get full accounting for january six. we know of president trump, former president, invoking executive privilege, ridiculously about conversations outside the government, and bannon now defying a subpoena.
they don't seem to want to talk about it, as mitch mcconnell said today, yeah well, he was asked about it and he said, well i think the voters care about the biden administration, we want 2022 to be a referendum on the biden ministration, not on this to's disputed issues about 2020. that's not quite correct about something like that. the degree of memory holding of january six, the day after that mitch mcconnell and others said, this is terrible, we need to come to grips with this, now the whole republican party is now for moving on. >> bill, now that you mention, it let me run exactly what mcconnell said, eugene requesting your indulgence we will run this and discuss on the other side. >> are you concerned or comfortable with your party embracing the former president, who you said was responsible for january 6th attack?
>> will i do think we need to be talking about the future. and not the past. i think the american people are focusing on this administration, what it's doing to the country, and it's my hope, that the 22 election will be a referendum. and the performance of the current administration. not a rehash of suggestions about what may have happened in 2020. >> that was some platinum level pivoting right there, i'm reminded of the new poll showing that 70% bill of republicans, want the last guy in office. so that's not kind of thinking of the future, as much as it is the past. >> you're going to explain this right? >> when i can explain is mitch mcconnell said not a rehash of 2020. we are talking about what happened in 2021. we are talking about what
happened on january 6th, the day that republicans forgot, as we went straight from january 5th to january 7th. and so, mcconnell is pulling a political gain, in playing a word game. with that. basically, they do want to memory hole the capital insurrection. they want to memory hole those scenes of police officers being be in within an inch of their lives with the american flag on by a treasonous mob. incited by then president, who happened to be republican. donald trump. and that's what they want is to forget about. i think it's the duty of citizens, not just democrats, but all of us, not to forget that this happened, but in fact,
to investigate into come to terms with it, and to know everything we can, know about it i'm glad the committee is proceeding as best it can, to do just that,. >> eugene, you know your readers so well your role in your, column whether intentional or tangential, is to keep up, alive and kind of cheer folks, up and wondering if you feel this one six committee, is embarking on what's going to become a plotting drawn out calendar. >> well, keep hope alive, i hope not. i suspect they'll be more plotting, in the lobby more drawn out than we would like. at least the committee has promptly voted to hold bannon in criminal contempt, now the house will have to, vote then it goes to the department, i
hope the justice department would then move swiftly, to try to enforce the subpoenas, these are subpoenas from congress, and they have some meaning or they either have no meaning. i guess we're going to find out, whether congress actually has subpoena power or not. >> bill, back to you and the 78% of republicans wanting donald trump in 2024. i've asked you five different versions of this question. what's breaks that, does anything break that at all? is there anyone who breaks through or not? >> obviously we don't, know from my point of view on the downside we've been, surprise consistently of the last six or seven, hears things can change, the bubble could burst conceivably, but we have an awful lot of evidence from january 7th, and plenty of occasions, whether january six being the most notable where the bubble could've burst.
whatever metaphor one once, and it hasn't it's gotten worse and some. ways and that's the most amazing. he's not president anymore he doesn't have the kind of he shouldn't have the kind of sway that he once had, and yet he has, it's in people are competing to be more trumpy than ever. in the primaries. and so forth. so, i guess my shorthand answer is, people say the fever might, break politics doesn't, it's not medicine, the fever breaks when someone breaks. people have to stand, up liz cheney has been very impresses i should say over the last eight or nine months. what's equally striking obviously brian, is that she's alone. >> yeah, well to extend your medical metaphor, we have more time to talk if i didn't have an upcoming segment about a new variant from the uk, speaking of the fever, breaking eugene robinson, bill kristol, two friends of, ours thank you jen so much for coming on, tonight, and coming up, why scientists
are indeed keeping an eye on this new mutation, of the delta variant. in the uk, and what more we need to know. uk, and what more w need to know you don't get much time for yourself. so when you do, make it count with crest pro-health. it protects the 8 areas dentists check for a healthier mouth. the #1 toothpaste brand in america. crest. we mentioned this before the
break, talked about it last night. in fact the bbc reporting health officials are keeping a close watch on the delta plus variant. in the uk, tests are underway to understand just how much of a threat it could pose. but right now there is no indication, no direct proof that is, that it is more transmissible than what we have been dealing with. thankfully with us to talk about it doctor irwin redlener, founder director of columbia's national center for disaster preparedness. who advised us on public health. i'll say professor of pediatrics at albert einstein college of medicine. all right doctor, what do we know about delta plus? and more importantly, perhaps, would do you yet want to know about it? >> right, brian, so the delta
plus a variant has been in existence for some couple of months now in the uk. and the thing about this is like all viruses, delta, the coronavirus knew takes. the reason that these viruses exist is to survive. and they survived by mutating. right now, the delta variant plus is the one that's of concern. and it is about 10% of the cases in the uk, and of the country. and we see a smothering of it in the u.s. even as well. the thing that would make us really set up and pay attention, brian, is that this variant, or other variants would either significantly more infectious than the form that it previously existed in. or it's more dangerous medically. or it is more resistant to treatments and to vaccines. so far, the delta plus we variant, brian, is a little bit
more transmissible. maybe 10%. some people think, there is no evidence at all, that it causes more severe illness. or it isn't any way assistant to the vaccine. so this is a time of watchful waiting and making sure that we are tracking exactly what is in this delta plus variant that it's doing. the meantime, it is not actually called a variant of concern, it is a variant of interest and it is just a matter of watching and making sure that we have things under control. the other big point about this is that it is very vulnerable, unlike the other variants to the various vaccines that are out there. the big message is that people should not worry about the common variants, which are going to be inevitable. but we should be worried about making sure that as many people as we could possibly get needles into arms, get vaccinated. as soon as possible. >> and i also want to ask you about the other news this week and that is, fda on the verge
of making it possible to mix and match vaccine brands. in that subset, are there combinations that are better, if you have a baseline to shop moderna, is it better for you if you get the pfizer. if you have the j&j, is any booster the best option? >> let me start with the j&j situation. so if you have the single j&j shot, which is what was recommended as single. a single dose, it is probably going to be recommended that all those people eventually need to get a booster shot. and a lot of people think that a booster of an am rna type of vaccine would be good for those people who got the j&j originally. and that would apply to either moderna or pfizer as the third shot or the booster shot. otherwise, the fda is still looking into the question as to
if you have one mrna vaccine, could you get another one as a booster shot. and all the resorts are not in yet. so the fda has not ruled yet on how to handle the mix and match question. >> with your indulgence, stick around with us, i have to fit in a break. i have another question for the good doctor on the other side when we continue. when we continue
doctor irwin redlener, remains with us. and doctor i'm using time that i don't technically have, let's talk about the winter. last winter we went through that awful surge, it kind of matched in exterior darkness. the darkness of the pandemic season. i am so curious to hear your projection for this winter. including, but not limited to, the highly vaccinated northeast. we >> right, so let me make
this quick, we are back in a whack-a-mole land. and the trend is starting to edge downward in some of the spaces in the south. but edging upward in the colder states. including oregon, the state of washington, north carolina, and other places. and what this means is that we are going into winter season with the virus that may will be more transmissible in cold climates. but we are also spending a lot more time indoors, being crowded together in ways that we didn't have to do in more temperate times. so we don't know what is going to happen yet. but the main message now is we are not done with the coronavirus yet, brian. and we will have to wait and see with the winter holds. but again, it speaks very strong, make sure you and your loved ones, neighbors and friends, are vaccinated to prevent any kind of involvement in a more intense winter season of stars covid to.
unless you are a republican member of congress. >> last thing before we go tonight, in this current era, it is not uncommon for a comedy show or network to do a better job covering the news then in that work devoted to covering the news. and on occasion, when it happens, we are the ones who should be honest about it and highlight their work as we are doing tonight. if you see a lot of social media, then you know that jordan klepper, does just that for the daily show with trevor. not jordan klepper dives into red america, trump's america. and his interviews blow in the minds of weight to many democrats. and yes, coastal elites in the mainstream media have no other regular exposure to trump's america, while living their lives in blue or whole foods america. the same folks who were mystified with trump's rise, same folks who never watched an episode of the apprentice over 14 seasons. well jordan klepper, denied
