tv   The 11th Hour With Brian Williams  MSNBC  October 25, 2021 11:00pm-12:00am PDT

11:00 pm
i really do. the infrastructure bill, it's a good bill. that we need. joe manchin, gets tonight's last word. the 11th hour with brian williams, starts now. >> good evening once again, day 270, nine of the biden administration. the president once again making it clear, that he will not help his predecessor, assert a claim of executive privilege. to keep additional material hidden from the house committee, investigating january 6th. president biden's white house counsel sent that message, in a letter, today over the national archives, trump's filed a lawsuit of course to keep documents related to one six, out of that committee's hands. this week that house committee could learn more about the organization, the planning of the rallies that took place in the weeks before the riot.
11:01 pm
at the capitol. including the one that very same day. several people involved in those efforts have been scheduled to appear for deposition, starting today. the only known witness to defy a committee subpoena, that would be trump ally steve bannon, he awaits the feds decision on prosecution for contempt of congress, we're also getting a closer look at the sea of the washington post, at the headquarters for some key figures in trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 election. post says rudy giuliani, steve bannon, and former new york city police commissioner bernard kerik, and conservative lawyer john eastman, hold up in washington's willard, hotel walking distance from the white house, in a suite of rooms they called the command center. one of the reporters on that post stories that the hotel is where they plotted out scenarios to deny joe biden the presidency. >> from november 5th until mid december, this operation was amateur hour, as rudy giuliani
11:02 pm
throwing spaghetti at the wall, figuring out how we can get these public legislatures into these swing, states that something could be done here that they could potentially find it. we are an example of fraud that may change peoples minds, when he got on to the scene, that's when they sort of brought in his constitutional expert piece. to map out how exactly that could be done, they were a block from the white house, and had access to former president, and were able to make their case directly to him. >> amid the investigation into the assault on our capitol, there are new reports from several outlets, including nbc, news on facebook struggled to control posts, from insurrectionists on january 6th. the reporting is based on a trove of documents that the facebook whistleblower, frances haugen, turns over to congress in the sec. today she testified in front of the uk parliament, about her former employer.
11:03 pm
>> and polarizes -- it doesn't matter if you're in the left or the right. it pushes you to the extremes. in a fans hate. anger and he is the easiest way to grow on facebook. we could have a safer platform, it could work for everyone in the world, but it will cost little bits of growth. and it's a company that lionizes growth. >> nbc news reporting zuckerberg responding to the reports on a phone call during which he announced, the company's near record revenue, and quarterly profits of wait for, 9.2 billion dollars. >> good save criticism helps us get better. but my view is that what we are seeing, is a coordinated effort to selectively use leaked documents, to paint a picture of our company. >> veteran tech journalist is standing by and she will join us in a moment, with her thoughts on all of this. meanwhile joe biden was on the road again today, in new jersey,
11:04 pm
promoting the infrastructure, bill and his domestic spending plan, negotiations still underway in, congress biden is hoping to get a deal before he leaves for europe on thursday, also tonight moderna now says its covid-19 vaccine is safe and effective for children, six through 11 years old. tomorrow and fda advisory panel meets to discuss authorizing pfizer shots, for younger children. with that let's bring in our starting line on this monday night. philip rucker, pulitzer prize winner senior washington correspondent for the washington post, coauthor with carole landing of the new york times bestseller, i alone can fix. it donald j trump's catastrophic final year. a b stoddard, veteran washington journalist associate editor and columnist, for real clear politics. and professor melissa murray, of nyu law school, who notably was law clerk for justice sonia sort of my or. on the federal bench, prior to her nomination to the supreme
11:05 pm
court. good evening and welcome to all of you indeed. counselor, i'd like to begin with, you because the white house counsel has again said, there is no privilege worries here, we are going to open up the files on the existing records, from one six. what happens next professor? is specially considering that this is under lawsuit? >> as you know, the former president has filed a lawsuit against both the chairman of the, committee and the archivist to withhold those documents. and a review in court would have to consider, both the scope of executive privilege here, and the fact this is a former president, is supposed to a current president voting. at the fact that the current president has no qualms about having this material released. and also to think about the nature of the communications that are allegedly being sought here. and so we have to think about what the broad ranges. why is this lawsuit being filed? and i think it's likely that it's being filed because
11:06 pm
litigation takes a long time. it will have to go through a trial, court and then to any media court of appeals. and then ultimately to the u.s. supreme court, for final determination. all of that may be moot if this doesn't happen before 2022, in the election. and if the republicans take back the house, they could end this select committee investigation, making all of this irrelevant. i think the reason we have this lawsuit, when we return to the courts when there's been no willing to compromise with, this is to run out the clock. >> great points all, around phil rucker, one else should we know about this command center at the willard hotel, known very well throughout washington d.c., well we point out in fairness, a lot of this detail originated, in a book by your colleagues >> that's right brian. there is great reporting here, about the gathering, the command center at the willard hotel. and who some of those key figures are. but the testimony of those,
11:07 pm
figures in this is why that january six committee, on capitol hill is seeking testimony from steve bannon and others. could really help fill in some of the gaps here. what exactly where the communications, that bannon, that john eastman, that rudy giuliani, that bernard kerik and others were having with president trump, in the days and hours leading up to the insurrection on january 6th. what sort of coordination where they, having with members of the house, republican lawmakers on capitol hill. were they coordinating, or communicating even? with the thousands of protesters who were amassing just outside the hotel in the streets. as they got ready to go see the president speak, the morning of january six. at the ellipse. just a black or two away. and who is funding all of this. there's an important detail in the washington post story over the weekend. that the trump campaign, was reimbursing for some of the expenses of this command center, which indicates a direct link between the campaign and between the operations at the
11:08 pm
command center, what's really under funding streams? were there any other links connecting the campaign or the republican national committee, or any other formal structures, perhaps even the government, with the operations that were underway and being led by mr. bannon. >> a, b conte race was in the news recently, for exactly one day, having emerged from civilian life long enough to say that while and i'm paraphrasing, one six was terrible, it's time we put it behind us. indeed, reporting you have done, says republicans are banking on obviously their own faithful, but even some swing voters, to put it behind them, what do they base that on? >> well bryan, the polls have shown, that since january 6th, the voters who make up the trump base, have turned away from their initial alarm and concern, and upset over one six,
11:09 pm
and they have decided it's no big, deal and really have integrated trump's re-branding, of january. 60 now says that the election on november 3rd, of 2020, is the insurrection, in that one six was a protest. he has said it a few times on talk shows, and then he had released it, his press release statements while this debate over steve bannon in this subpoenas taking place on the house floor last week. and this has been a successful marketing campaign, that you can see in the polling, the attitudes among republicans have shifted, to now this being sort of ron johnson's description of no big deal. and if anything, it's the fault of joe biden, or the democrats, or the something else. with, that republicans are really close to gaining the majority in the, house in next year's midterms. and potentially the senate majority as well. and they are banking on the
11:10 pm
fact that maybe, voters are tuning this out as, well and there's no alarm bells, in the polling right now, that independent voters in swing voters are alarmed, about the threat to democracy, or trump's continuance of the big lie. or his re-branding of the insurrection, and so we will see as the findings are released, from this committee, as we learn more, as we did from this explosive washington post reporting, but also from the rolling stone magazine report, about staffers, and members of congress, being intimately involved in the planning of this, and how some of these people, are now sharing this with the committee. these findings, ultimately will determine, how these swing voters look upon one six, next year. when the election is closer. republicans have made this gamble, that it's not going to matter. but depending on what we learn, and we've learned a lot since the vote last week, on the
11:11 pm
attempt, the criminal contempt referral for steve bannon. depending on what is revealed, it is going to probably ultimately look like a very risky gamble. >> professor a.b. just said a lot, there and addition to the piece she's written on this same topic, if the committee, has this ticking clock, and they're looking to go after organizers and funders, a very basic question is who paid for all those buses that descended on washington d.c.. all those hotel and motel rooms, what is the fastest way they can go about that? >> to be, clear the question is the, clock in time running, out one way that the committee can deal with, this is to refer more of these to criminal investigations, or prosecutions at the department of justice. and have the executive branch take it up, those prosecutions would survive a mid term loss of that disbanded the committee, if that were to happen. in so that might be one way of
11:12 pm
proceeding, it might be longer in the long term, but would at least be a way to propel this going forward, and to allow it to get around that stopgap, of the midterm election. >> phil, rucker your colleagues write this tonight, about president biden, in the days ahead offer the opportunity, for a major breakthrough for, biden and his democratic allies in congress. after party leaders confronted firsthand, the tough political reality, of governing with only a narrow majority. in the house in senate. in the house and senate going. in i need to know from you, your knowledge of where negotiations stand now. and what is the possibility, the president is going to affix his signature, to a, bill any bill, beyond the naming of national peach month between now and when he is wheels up for europe on thursday? >> yes brian.
11:13 pm
president biden very much wants to have one if not both of these bills signs and done by the time he leaves for europe, in part because there is a major climate conference, convening this weekend, and he wants to be able to announce there that the united states, has signed into law, some major climate change legislation, that of course is contained, in what, happened a three and a half trillion dollar social spending package, that is now being whittled, down effectively in half, my colleagues on capitol hill are reporting at this hour, that it appears there honing in on a deal for that 1.7 five trillion, we were there still haggling with senator joe manchin of west virginia, senator kyrsten sinema of arizona, over a couple of the key elements of that bill. specifically the expansion of medicare and medicaid, the expansion of the paid family leave program. and some of the climate
11:14 pm
measures that manchin is opposing, in part because of the power of the coal industry, in his home state of west virginia. those negotiations are ongoing, but we are hearing from the white house and from democratic leaders, and even from manchin himself today, signs of optimism that the deal could come together in the next 48 hours or, so biden is very much desperately wants to see that, happened because he does not want to go to europe, empty-handed, he wants this done, and also on the calendar are the elections next tuesday specifically, the virginia gubernatorial race, democrats harry mcauliffe, is in a real dead heat with the republican, there and win very much like a talking point in that democrats governing here in washington can get things. don there's hope among the democrats that a deal could help mcauliffe win that race next tuesday. >> a.b., as phil alluded, to the and av entire biden as phil camp is getting alluded to to get a taste of what it's like to a taste for what it's like you're getting the government for a democratic president. in a world where manchin and
11:15 pm
sinema, insist on being called democrats. among other challenges. look at the bill that first started, how many trillions of dollars were we talking about? how many trains of dollars to a guy like bernie sanders want. look at what biden's likely to get. how does he go back and cover and explain all of that? well, i think biden has been a realist about this. mostly all along. and he knew what he was doing with his math. look, give joe manchin credit, he did outline this to his leader in the seventh in july. and they have known, in the end, it would be paired back. you have to tell your coalition whether you are moderate or progressive, that you fought all along. that you fought the big fight. and that is what the true fraction of the democratic caucus have been doing, in both chambers. but i do think that they are going to come to some kind of
11:16 pm
agreement, bernie sanders knew it wouldn't be ten -- he knew it wouldn't be six. he said 3.5 was a floor, but he knew it wasn't the floor. so i think we are going to come to some sort of resolution soon. and people will celebrate what is in it. for some, for the progresses, it will be many initiatives with short funding streams. and for the moderates, it will be ultimately the price tag. but i do think that he is going to get something very soon. and they have known all along it was not going to be the size and scope of the initial offer. >> and it's only monday, to phil rucker, abc daughter, melissa murray starting live on this monday night. thanks for joining us tonight. coming up for us veteran tech journalist, joins us to break down what we need to know from those thousands of leaked facebook documents. what employees were saying
11:17 pm
about their roles in the january 6th riot as a company. and later, what we are hearing from barack obama about two very important governor races just about a week out from election day now. why the former president isn't holding back criticizing virginia republicans. all of it as the 11th hour is just getting underway for this new week, looking at the west wing, on a monday night. a monday night.

11:20 pm
engagement, is a cheaper ad. we have seen over and over
11:21 pm
again and facebook's research, it is easier to provoke people to anger, then to empathy and compassion. so we are literally subsidizing hate on these platforms. it is cheaper substantially to run an angry ad, then it is to run a passionate and empathetic. at >> facebook whistle blower, explaining how people engage with divisive ads on facebook. nbc news was given a trove of leaked documents to underscore the internal anger on facebook of the spread of misinformation and calls to violence. according to the document employees blame the company for what happened on one six. quote. i'm struggling to match our value to the employment here an employee wrote in a comment. i am hoping to affect change and improve society, but all i have seen is atrophy and abdication of responsibility. it is an important night to have back with us we kara swisher, technology and business journalists, contributing the new york times,
11:22 pm
host of the new york times podcast called sway. and in his spare time host of the podcast called pivot. with scott galloway, which exist mostly to give our friends got something to do. we kara, i'm going to assume that you have been through more of these documents then certainly most of us who are here to listen to your answer. i note, that mr. zuckerberg says that it is a selective lead, most leaks are. it doesn't make the material in them untrue but, good try blaming the media. how bad is it? >> i think it is pretty bad. as we've talked about many times, this is a growing problem for facebook on a number of areas. and i think that one that struck me the most, that this trove of documents, and by the way there are more coming. because there are a lot of them. is the obsession with stopping their employees from speaking out.
11:23 pm
and i think one of the things that is interesting here is that these employees distant. and i thought that was the most striking part. they are going to have a real problem with labor at that company, and continue to have. it because so many people, not just one, not just to, but a lot of people are talking about the faults that facebook had. and would have been whether was january 6th or donald trump. and i think that is one of the issues. the other was the incredible international problems. that they have, that they have created. and i just interviewed the person who won the nobel peace prize, she had one meet this before that so clearly in this documents it so clearly disturbing. and that they knew about. >> of course traveled to other continents knew that in a place like africa, facebook is the portal to the internet. it is bigger there than it is here. >> absolutely, everywhere in the world. 90% of news is through facebook. facebook is the internet. it is not the portal of the internet, it is the internet.
11:24 pm
and they managed to kind of sloppily in many countries. and that is one of the things that mainly disturbed me. and many of course, as maria told me many years ago, we are a canary in the coal mine. it is going to come here in the u.s., and the employees are very clearly pointing to facebook's culpability in helping amplified the problems of hate on the internet, and later to the capitol. >> kara, are they capable of change on their own? >> i don't know. i honestly thought these responses that mark had today -- despite the fact that there are nukes are, of wall street loves them, that is beside the point. although it's sort of an interesting situation that they like their business. it's just their business may be predicated on some real problems. as atlantic said today, facebook proved to be the perfect type messy for the incline. and one of their employees i thought had the most interesting tex, from the many techs, which is heartbreaking. is that history will not just kindly. i think that was completely on point. >> how do they prevent
11:25 pm
themselves from being the community bulletin board for insurrectionists? >> community beloved forward for everything they are. facebook isn't responsible for every terrible human behavior. it has been going on for a long time. and that is one of facebook's defensive. but when you amplify the stuff, and you provide this kind of -- rene, calls it amplified propaganda. when you become the platform for that, and your own employees are ruining you about it. and you don't, either get smaller or cut it back, and you lean into the idea that enraged at that engagement equals in richmond. you have a problem. i think that this is really -- they are at a crossroads. and they should just stick it with the defense, and hope to just wet it out. i think that's not what they should be doing. and i think this name change this week, that apparently they're gonna do on thursday, is part of that, trying to
11:26 pm
shield mark zuckerberg from further criticism. >> do you know the new name? has it been like to you? >> no, not at all. they don't talk to me at all anymore, because i have been such a critic of. this since i have met maria, they won't speak to me at all. we asked for 12 to 15 employees who i've known for a decade, and none of them will talk to me. the top employee, that is. i heard it is meta supposedly and it's thursday, but i'm not so sure what it will be. but it is coming. >> i actually want to ask you a personal question about that, having read anything you've written on this and heard every word that you've spoken on this topic, going back to when you were complaining that they had to realize they were a publisher, they had to go through a metamorphosis. this company born in the hartford dorm had to grow up fast because the world had come to them. what's it like to you to see thus far, and lord knows where we're going, the arc of their story compared to your comment
11:27 pm
and criticism all the way? >> i am not thrilled to be right. i don't like it. i don't like that this is what they do. because there are so many amazing people, and that's what came through in these documents. the employees, there are people who care a great deal. the readers are not listening to them and that might be -- because those leaders are not the right leaders, no matter how will they do in wall street this is a company that is showing deleterious effects on society. if something has to change. either in their attitude, or their accepting of the responsibility or maybe they shouldn't be that big a platform. there are all kinds of solution here. none of which they seem to want to embrace, but their employees know what to do. and they know that they could do something about it. and it's really sad that they are not listening to them. >> our guest thoroughly is the voice of authority on this topic, care swisher, thank you so much always a pleasure to have you on. >> thank you brian. >> coming up for us after our next break, when barack obama shows up to campaign, it usually means the democrats are
11:28 pm
worried enough about the campaign to call him barack obama. and in virginia, the former president is taking it right to the republicans. s. (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. when years supporters hold a
11:29 pm
11:30 pm
11:31 pm
rally, where they pledged allegiance to a flag that was flown at the insurrection at the capitol on january 6th, the
11:32 pm
biggest threat to our democracy in my lifetime. when you don't separate yourselves from them, when you don't think that's a problem, you know what, that's a problem. >> we are just one week away from two consequential elections for governor, new jersey and virginia, president biden weighs in jersey today, where he met with the incumbent governor phil murphy, and he hands back to virginia tomorrow, where polls show terry mcauliffe, tied with a republican glenn youngkin, back with us tonight, don calloway, democratic strategist and founder of the national voters protection fund and, bill kristol veteran of the reagan and bush administration, and editor at large at the bulwark, gentleman good evening and welcome to you both. don, i think we can take it as a given for this conversation, that as a presence and as a
11:33 pm
speaker, barack obama is a singular figure, in our, country and not just in our politics. having said that, i know democrats you acted like virginia is going to be a, layup i know democrats who acted like new jersey was going to be a layup. you don't call in michael jordan for a layup. what do you make of the president speaking style on the stump these days? in these two races? >> the president speaking style is very clear that he's never running for office again, which is why he can kind of go with this almost urban folksy plain speak thing that seems to be very effective, you just wish he could've done it when selling's agenda to the american, people i think he sold it effectively but he was almost a bit to pedantic an academic's times as president. now is an unbridled manning can speak as he sees freely, that's a positive, asset not only in the gubernatorial races, but going into next year and even 2024, his main thing right, now if you think about, it no
11:34 pm
matter how much truth, speaks he's not convincing republicans to switch their votes to terry mcauliffe, and he's not convincing democrats not to vote for glenn youngkin, ultimately what he's doing, is waking democrats up, reminding people with the week out, that he and stacey abrams and some others, that there's -- >> don at first you froze, and then we took your voice and now your voice is gone. and we will try to reestablish. luckily bill kristol standing by as well. bill i want to play for you, some of glenn youngkin on fox news, we will discuss on the other side. >> this is virginians, not republicans versus democrats, yes the nation is watching, because they recognize that when virginia stand, up and take a state that has been blue, and elect a republican governor, it's going to make a statement, that will be, heard not just around the country but around the world, that we will stand up for those values that mean the most to americans. >> bill as we establish last
11:35 pm
time we discuss this, he's done a rather affective parents rates, campaign events tour, which in the wrong hands, bumps right up against that kind of quiet anti vax movement, he has managed to tow the line thus far, he's been endorsed about six times by donald trump has managed to the best of his ability to avoid donald trump, what does a guy like, this in a statement like the one we just, heard what is it mean for the democrats? >> we'll see how effective it, is his closing it is an ad featuring apparent from fairfax county claims it's someone who's had nightmares, reading a, novel she doesn't say what novel it was her how old she was, and that the pair objected, in the school board was unresponsive, and that's, bad in this was the issue in virginia, and there was a legislation to give parents a
11:36 pm
kind of veto over certain readings in school, in fact her son was a senior, and the book was beloved by tony morrison, so this is not some kind of exotic weirdo book be enforced and six creators or something, i don't know that we want parents to be able to choose which book should be on the ap english reading, list i guess those list are made up nationally, this is an ap english, class anyway we will see if that whole attempt to run against the school, boards run against the public school establishment, claim that middle american values are being trampled on by the. leeds liberal leads. i'm a little dubious if that works. and i don't know if closing with that is the most is a sign of great strength, i wonder if his poll is showing a little bit, down and he's not closing with much of a positive message, mcauliffe is closing with a much more positive, i'm a good governor, i can do it, again and i can bring jobs, back messages well as trying to attack youngkin as his ties
11:37 pm
with trump. we will see. >> don, we heard most of what i think you said, we lost which you are saying at the end, take a quick swing at new jersey for me, and why democrats there, our swimming way harder than they thought they would have to. they're swimming because i do this for a living, and i don't know the name of the dude that phil murphy is running against, this is all you need to know is that barack obama would have to go up to new jersey, for a race or an incumbent democrat against a guy who has virtually no recognition outside of sea caucus, i think the bottom line here is that democrats have to remember, in the dga my good friends over, there have to remember that were old enough to remember new jersey electing a republican, governor massachusetts electing a republican senator, we can't take any of these states for, granted particularly in these off cycle, odd number years, we're ultimately it comes down to democratic turnout. if you catch people sleeping,
11:38 pm
if republicans catch the right amount of political, fatigue we could hit a perfect storm, and they could end up taking charge in these seats, remember these elections are all important because the states are the seat of democracy, where republicans will attempt to subvert the process. in 2020, two and ultimately in 24. >> his name is jack -- as a new jersey shore person all summer long there were those banners, planes trailing a banner that said, merely jack, to get the name recognition out there. indeed zero, point no democratic governor of new jersey has received more than one term in over 40 years, both interesting races to watch. thankfully for us both of these gentlemen are going to stick, with us i'm going to slip in a break, here coming up when our conversation continues, the political impacts of a small minority of workers, taking on vaccine mandates that the majority of american support. majority of american support

this is not about left or right. this is not about who's conservative or liberal. take the political speaking points and tossed them. for now. i'm begging. you tossed them. and think of what's good. not only for yourself, but for those around you. life is too short to be enact. life is way too short to be ignorant of the promise of something that is helping people worldwide. stop the deaths. stop the suffering. please, get vaccinated. please. >> an emotional plea from fox news host, veteran anchor neil cavuto, following his covid-19 diagnosis of the very network that is paneling vaccine misinformation on a nightly basis. meanwhile, red state governor continue to push back on vaccine mandates. kay ivey in alabama looking to ban vaccine mandates and in
11:43 pm
florida, so on brand, rhonda sentence now offering $5,000 bonuses to police officers in other states who he says are being treated well. because presumably, as first responders, they are being forced to take the vaccine. don tell away, bill kristol are still with us. bill, get me out of this talk for a while our friends in the red state. >> yes, you should have a bit of a sip of water there. brian, the next that we see is pretty extraordinary. if you told me 10:20 years ago, unfortunately -- populists -- i would've said it's going to be wildly anti immigration and you scare tactics on immigration. they're going to play the race car. it's going to get all upset about tony morrison and putting aside in an ap class. and that is the kind of authoritarianism that is likely to see a hyper patriotism say,
11:44 pm
how dare you, how do you say there's any dark spots on this country. the one thing that i predicted is, vaccines. where does that come from? people have been taking vaccines in this country a long time. there have been nothing much of a political great down about it. even though trump -- even he was in a real leader in the effort against vaccine. he obviously tried to take credit for the vaccines and switch developments. so for me it shows a level of conspiracy theories, thanking the level of hostilities, any part of the establishment, anything that the authorities say are good thing. we are going to be against, i don't know, i find it more stressing. regular authoritarianism, populism, nativism, is bad enough. but this level of conspiracy theorizing in which people are doing things, hurting themselves, killing themselves and their neighbors is really
11:45 pm
terrible. and it is not gotten lighter, we're kind of keep thinking it's going to go away. as you see republican governors are saying, and continue to cater to the anti-vaccine passions. >> much better here, thank you for that bill. and thank you for the thoughts containing therein. >> don i have one for you, i'm gonna play something for you from a woman named tina pull ski, florida state senator. she is going to talk here about a meeting she had with the surgeon general of florida who was of course appointed by governor desantis. >> i said, just please wear a mask, i have a very serious medical condition. at that point i have not made myself public. and again, he just refused to do it. so after enough time had passed, and i saw he wasn't going to, i said, i know what i need to know, can you please leave. he didn't care about my health, so i don't know how he's going to care about the public health and 21 million so radiance. >> so don, just repeating, the
11:46 pm
man she's talking about is the surgeon general of the state of florida. has there ever been anything more florida than that story? >> what hashtag florida man. no, you know there's no real explanation for anything like this. i find it odd that baby trump down there in florida is also appointed an african american surgeon general much like senior trump did. i don't know if that has anything to do with anything i just find it incredibly remarkable that that gentlemen would fill to either sign call of the creek in his profession so fondly. it's really sad, it really makes no sense. but i will say to the folks in my communities, who is likely to vote democratic, we really messed up when we made toothless rednecks and maga types the face of the vaccine hesitant community. and there are a lot of folks out there in educated spaces
