00:04:12   well I will tell you this i am i'm going [TS]

00:04:15   to be honest open kimono I'm opening the [TS]

00:04:18   kimono here [TS]

00:04:20   I'm not happy with the election results [TS]

00:04:25   I think I honestly fear for the state of [TS]

00:04:30   Western democracy [TS]

00:04:33   yeah I absolutely positively had too [TS]

00:04:38   much to drink last night huh [TS]

00:04:40   and when I woke up this morning I [TS]

00:04:42   thought there's only one person i can [TS]

00:04:45   ask to be on my show today and it's [TS]

00:04:47   Merlin net below and i will say this you [TS]

00:04:53   know I reached out to you for this very [TS]

00:04:57   special emergency pacific right because [TS]

00:05:00   I'll tell you what I i am in general I [TS]

00:05:03   try I try to go once a week and once we [TS]

00:05:07   would have put me like a couple of days [TS]

00:05:10   before the election and a couple of days [TS]

00:05:14   ago I was too pre-election obsessed and [TS]

00:05:19   I thought nobody wants to hear be able [TS]

00:05:22   to create pre-election obsessed John [TS]

00:05:25   Gruber I talk about the keyboard on the [TS]

00:05:30   new macbook pro right i mean who the [TS]

00:05:33   fuck cares about the goddamn key travel [TS]

00:05:36   on the macbook pro two or three days [TS]

00:05:39   before the end of Western civilization [TS]

00:05:43   and so I thought I can't do it I [TS]

00:05:46   probably should have I should have just [TS]

00:05:48   done like a regular show just called [TS]

00:05:50   multiple again you know I mean have you [TS]

00:05:52   know could you also you as a person you [TS]

00:05:57   enjoy you enjoy winning franchise with a [TS]

00:06:02   story [TS]

00:06:03   oh I do I and one thing I've learned [TS]

00:06:05   from you and share with a lot of people [TS]

00:06:07   is that distinction you made one time I [TS]

00:06:08   think on this program talking about how [TS]

00:06:10   there's numbers people in in baseball [TS]

00:06:13   and there's story people have you know [TS]

00:06:15   with regard to fans and I still actually [TS]

00:06:17   I still think about that a lot and it [TS]

00:06:18   did have an effect on how I think about [TS]

00:06:20   sports as a thing but i'm not trying to [TS]

00:06:23   take the piss I mean you you like you [TS]

00:06:25   know you like the like the Yankees you [TS]

00:06:28   like with Cowboys right yeah you like [TS]

00:06:30   you like these teams with a storied past [TS]

00:06:33   who are going to win so it makes sense [TS]

00:06:35   for you to wait until the inevitable win [TS]

00:06:40   that to be able to talk about it in a [TS]

00:06:43   way that's I don't know for celebratory [TS]

00:06:46   I mean why be jittery on air because it [TS]

00:06:48   all seemed like it was going in the [TS]

00:06:52   right direction [TS]

00:06:53   mostly mostly I mean this is that mean I [TS]

00:06:57   don't even know where to begin [TS]

00:06:58   I know I I tell you this I we got last [TS]

00:07:01   night and I early on early on i started [TS]

00:07:07   tweeting less because you know what I [TS]

00:07:09   started thinking like you know what i [TS]

00:07:11   like to do and I think people who you [TS]

00:07:16   know certainly people who listen to the [TS]

00:07:17   show but people follow me on twitter [TS]

00:07:19   certainly know like to tweet during [TS]

00:07:22   sporting events I care about and it is a [TS]

00:07:27   similar feeling in my stomach when [TS]

00:07:31   there's like a sporting event I care [TS]

00:07:34   about and and election I care about but [TS]

00:07:39   then there's the difference and the [TS]

00:07:41   difference is that sports don't mean [TS]

00:07:45   anything that and that's kind of the fun [TS]

00:07:48   part about sports and I know that [TS]

00:07:50   there's everything everything that [TS]

00:07:52   everything that's wonderful about sports [TS]

00:07:54   is what the fan brings to it right you [TS]

00:07:56   can choose to bring all different kinds [TS]

00:07:58   of history and expectations and import [TS]

00:08:00   but like you you get to pick what you're [TS]

00:08:04   going to be very emotional about and you [TS]

00:08:06   get the kind of on some rational level [TS]

00:08:08   you get to decide why those steaks are [TS]

00:08:10   important right like if six months ago [TS]

00:08:12   you you something happened and and you [TS]

00:08:15   had a terrible head injury and you went [TS]

00:08:18   into a coma but you're a terrific [TS]

00:08:22   baseball fan and you don't wake up until [TS]

00:08:25   like the middle of next year and AH you [TS]

00:08:29   wake up and you're like who won the [TS]

00:08:31   world series and somebody tells you well [TS]

00:08:34   it was the Cubs the the the state of the [TS]

00:08:38   world outside the word see you BS Cubs [TS]

00:08:43   it is actually not any different [TS]

00:08:47   right and if they said oh my god it was [TS]

00:08:50   the Cleveland Indians or almost on me [TS]

00:08:53   not rightfully hear this but a lot of [TS]

00:08:55   people say that was probably one of the [TS]

00:08:56   definitely better world series games [TS]

00:08:58   with some people put that in like the [TS]

00:09:00   top 50 ya know there's the people who [TS]

00:09:02   would put in your top five games [TS]

00:09:04   I mean it was an amazing game but the [TS]

00:09:06   truth of the matter is that outside of [TS]

00:09:10   the baseball park it it doesn't really [TS]

00:09:15   matter and that is so I i do i woke up [TS]

00:09:19   yesterday and I thought you know what [TS]

00:09:20   this feels like when the Yankees are in [TS]

00:09:22   the World Series [TS]

00:09:23   I feel like I've got that feeling i care [TS]

00:09:25   i can't sleep I'm jittery except i know [TS]

00:09:30   that this time it cares and it in one [TS]

00:09:34   regard it makes me say this is why [TS]

00:09:36   sports are great and in the other regard [TS]

00:09:39   it makes me say this is why a lot of [TS]

00:09:42   smart people don't give two craps about [TS]

00:09:44   sports because sports are actually [TS]

00:09:47   nonsense and I I kind of feel like this [TS]

00:09:52   election brings out and focus [TS]

00:09:55   yeah there's i mean i-i don't like [TS]

00:10:04   getting involved in a lot of political I [TS]

00:10:07   don't like talking about politics and [TS]

00:10:09   public i have had my feelings about all [TS]

00:10:10   kinds of stuff in life and who knows [TS]

00:10:13   maybe it's time for me to talk more [TS]

00:10:14   about it but I I feel like generally [TS]

00:10:18   speaking the cost-benefit analysis on [TS]

00:10:21   having a strong public opinion that's [TS]

00:10:24   unambiguous and you argue about it a lot [TS]

00:10:27   and you encourage people just to you [TS]

00:10:29   know pick or continue fights with you [TS]

00:10:32   that's just that's not my personality [TS]

00:10:34   it's not how I want to live it's not who [TS]

00:10:37   I want to be but that doesn't mean they [TS]

00:10:39   don't have those strong opinions so I'm [TS]

00:10:41   my cards on the table and I'm that guy [TS]

00:10:45   I'm that guy that used to say get rid of [TS]

00:10:47   all your news tabs like stop following [TS]

00:10:49   stuff the time attention right but i [TS]

00:10:51   have started listening to probably half [TS]

00:10:53   a dozen podcast about politics this [TS]

00:10:56   election year [TS]

00:10:57   some of which come out every day or [TS]

00:11:00   twice or three times a week I've been in [TS]

00:11:03   utterly steeped in that but at [TS]

00:11:05   everything and almost every step of the [TS]

00:11:06   way even even when things are not [TS]

00:11:09   looking great for the Democratic [TS]

00:11:11   candidate there is still this part of me [TS]

00:11:13   that said this is I think I understand [TS]

00:11:17   enough about the bones of this country [TS]

00:11:19   to know how this will end up and on top [TS]

00:11:23   of that I see enough stuff from [TS]

00:11:26   different sources of data that tells me [TS]

00:11:28   it'll turn out okay is this gonna be the [TS]

00:11:31   best selection ever know but like I [TS]

00:11:33   swear to Christ like even up until [TS]

00:11:36   yesterday that confidence in American [TS]

00:11:39   the American bones is I think i mighta [TS]

00:11:43   got it wrong and so that's a cavity when [TS]

00:11:46   we were texting this morning that's kind [TS]

00:11:48   of where I am I'm not angry at I'm not [TS]

00:11:50   to finger pointing [TS]

00:11:51   I'm not even to abject terror yet i'm [TS]

00:11:53   still stuck at sitting there in my [TS]

00:11:56   living room with my family last line my [TS]

00:11:58   daughter was literally under a blanket [TS]

00:11:59   she put your plugs in and went under a [TS]

00:12:01   blanket to read wimpy kid because she [TS]

00:12:03   couldn't take it anymore [TS]

00:12:04   yeah and I love is a good books over [TS]

00:12:09   there better than you think but watching [TS]

00:12:11   watching watching that little drip drip [TS]

00:12:14   drip and then seeing a state flip to [TS]

00:12:18   read it first when we walked up a [TS]

00:12:19   picture but school I could do I said hey [TS]

00:12:21   look you know there's he's got three on [TS]

00:12:23   the board already don't worry people [TS]

00:12:24   knew he was going to get those those are [TS]

00:12:26   not giant electoral States we talked she [TS]

00:12:28   knows about this from school but anyway [TS]

00:12:30   I don't mean to prattle on but like I'm [TS]

00:12:31   here today because I'm not even to where [TS]

00:12:34   i know i'm going to end up i'm still I'm [TS]

00:12:37   just stunned by how wrong I was and how [TS]

00:12:43   poorly i saw and i think i'm going to be [TS]

00:12:47   processing that for at least a few days [TS]

00:12:50   is just the the engine of the boards [TS]

00:12:54   like shocked and surprised it sounds [TS]

00:12:56   silly now I just doesn't listen to [TS]

00:12:58   keeping a 1600 which is up so I like a [TS]

00:13:00   lot and they're just they're just like [TS]

00:13:02   we got every single bit of this wrong [TS]

00:13:05   and we feel bad that we told you not to [TS]

00:13:07   wet the bed and we you know it's that [TS]

00:13:09   now I'm just didn't and [TS]

00:13:11   babbling but i'm just i'm sitting here [TS]

00:13:12   and I'm just I'm just I'm stunned with [TS]

00:13:16   how much i got wrong I'll eventually try [TS]

00:13:19   to figure out what I got wrong but at [TS]

00:13:22   this point it's just an unconscionably [TS]

00:13:25   large amount of assumptions that I had a [TS]

00:13:28   fairly decent level of confidence and [TS]

00:13:30   that there is that I'm going to have to [TS]

00:13:32   just rethink the whole bunch of things [TS]

00:13:33   that make me very uncomfortable [TS]

00:13:35   I you know and and I is it not for like [TS]

00:13:44   it but let's make sure everybody feels [TS]

00:13:48   included sake it but for hey everybody [TS]

00:13:52   is sick of the divisive stuff is why i [TS]

00:13:57   would love and I think you agree that [TS]

00:14:02   this episode of the show should not be [TS]

00:14:04   like hey Hilary should have one Donald [TS]

00:14:08   Trump is an asshole I I don't want to [TS]

00:14:10   divide people because I mean it's [TS]

00:14:13   everybody's had enough of that and the [TS]

00:14:16   time for that not not least because [TS]

00:14:18   Democrats are the second the second most [TS]

00:14:20   surprise party today right [TS]

00:14:22   i agree i really i really believe I [TS]

00:14:25   think so too [TS]

00:14:26   right i don't think they this is i don't [TS]

00:14:29   think most people in their hearts really [TS]

00:14:32   believe this will go this i do i I agree [TS]

00:14:36   and I honestly think if we want to just [TS]

00:14:40   for a moment get a little political that [TS]

00:14:43   done deal but seriously yet Donald [TS]

00:14:45   Trump's win is not a Republican when [TS]

00:14:47   it's a trump win it what what he is and [TS]

00:14:51   what he represents and what drove his [TS]

00:14:54   victory has almost nothing to do with [TS]

00:14:59   the Republican Party I but I i would [TS]

00:15:05   like for this episode of the show to be [TS]

00:15:07   for everybody and I will just tell you [TS]

00:15:09   that I my son who is not i wouldn't [TS]

00:15:16   think is political because he's he's 12 [TS]

00:15:18   years old [TS]

00:15:19   you know i mean it's it's he's way too [TS]

00:15:21   young to be political [TS]

00:15:23   before we send him to bed last night [TS]

00:15:26   we're watching the results it they were [TS]

00:15:28   not you know they were obviously heading [TS]

00:15:32   towards where we are and he said that [TS]

00:15:35   his stomach felt bad and I i mean it it [TS]

00:15:40   killed me because what am I going to say [TS]

00:15:41   to one you know I mean it's like yeah [TS]

00:15:44   okay i mean i think i think maybe less [TS]

00:15:51   wise to get older kids kids pick up a [TS]

00:15:53   lot from the people around them [TS]

00:15:55   particularly parents doesn't mean [TS]

00:15:56   they're gonna listen to put on their [TS]

00:15:57   shoes but they can read a lot of the [TS]

00:16:00   emotional temperature and very much [TS]

00:16:02   pressure in the room and I think and [TS]

00:16:04   we've talked a lot about the selection [TS]

00:16:05   at home a lot a lot a lot and but i [TS]

00:16:09   think the difference here is it it's not [TS]

00:16:12   that my team didn't win [TS]

00:16:14   it's that maybe I just don't understand [TS]

00:16:15   baseball anymore right and right that's [TS]

00:16:18   that's a very different kind of thing to [TS]

00:16:19   process and I think that's apart from [TS]

00:16:22   the pack 5 were both crying a little bit [TS]

00:16:23   which is never fun to do in front of [TS]

00:16:25   your kid it's um I think there was [TS]

00:16:28   definitely a sense that this was [TS]

00:16:30   something very much different and it's [TS]

00:16:34   not actually SAT and watched a bunch of [TS]

00:16:35   presidential elections but it felt like [TS]

00:26:33   lot of catalogs John we get a lot of [TS]

00:26:34   political things we had we have because [TS]

00:26:37   i'm checking out a hundred and [TS]

00:26:38   seventy-five ballot initiatives God on [TS]

00:26:42   the John the board of elections had to [TS]

00:26:45   provide guidance on how to fold your [TS]

00:26:47   ballot to put in the envelope so that [TS]

00:26:49   you didn't end up spending like eleven [TS]

00:26:51   dollars on postage they had guidance on [TS]

00:26:53   I think they have a QuickTime movies [TS]

00:26:55   what crazy days we had to we had to we [TS]

00:27:02   don't call ballot initiatives here in [TS]

00:27:04   Pennsylvania we call them what I forget [TS]

00:27:06   what we call them but it's not like [TS]

00:27:09   California but we had two things to vote [TS]

00:27:11   on that were sort of the the sort of [TS]

00:27:13   thing that I don't think you should be [TS]

00:27:15   deciding by direct democracy i think [TS]

00:27:20   that this is exactly why we have right a [TS]

00:27:24   legislature so one of them was should we [TS]

00:27:28   raise in Pennsylvania like many states a [TS]

00:27:31   surprising number of states if if you [TS]

00:27:34   just google it if you're a state judge [TS]

00:27:38   if you're you know you when you when you [TS]

00:27:42   reach the age of 70 it's a mandatory [TS]

00:27:44   retirement maracas and and that's that's [TS]

00:27:48   probably it's probably pretty old law [TS]

00:27:49   well I'll time Wendy and seventy was [TS]

00:27:51   kind of a big deal [TS]

00:27:52   I seems like a non on the ballot was a [TS]

00:27:56   an initiative I don't know what you call [TS]

00:27:58   it but whatever they call it here in PA [TS]

00:28:00   to raise the AIDS 275 and and we got and [TS]

00:28:06   I said that's so weirdly just slightly [TS]

00:28:09   less carpetright like it's not to get [TS]

00:28:12   rid of it i think you have any 600k [TS]

00:28:15   that'll fix it done [TS]

00:28:18   it's exactly what i thought what I saw [TS]

00:28:20   it was like you know you want to get rid [TS]

00:28:24   of this age thing [TS]

00:28:26   yes or no I can kind of see that but [TS]

00:28:28   like 70 to 75 it's like what [TS]

00:28:32   where do these numbers come from but we [TS]

00:28:35   got we got a thing because we're [TS]

00:28:37   registered we happen to be registered [TS]

00:28:39   Democrat I don't think people are [TS]

00:28:41   surprised to hear me say that huh [TS]

00:28:43   interesting but we got something from [TS]

00:28:45   our local Democratic word with a a [TS]

00:28:48   suggested ballot like here's how we [TS]

00:28:51   think you should vote you know here's [TS]

00:28:53   everything that up you know here's who [TS]

00:28:55   you should vote for and you know i mean [TS]

00:29:01   this is like President you know you [TS]

00:29:03   should vote for Hillary Clinton you know [TS]

00:29:06   senator Katie McGinty that's you know [TS]

00:29:09   our senator who's running against this [TS]

00:29:11   dipshit that bad to me I and and so on [TS]

00:29:15   as it goes down the ballot but then it [TS]

00:29:17   gets down to these ballot initiatives we [TS]

00:29:19   only had two and and on the one that [TS]

00:29:23   said you know she raised the mandatory [TS]

00:29:26   retirement age for judges from 70 to 75 [TS]

00:29:29   it said vote no in other words don't [TS]

00:29:34   raise the retirement age it's that vote [TS]

00:29:36   no [TS]

00:29:37   oh that confusing language ah it's [TS]

00:29:41   already hard enough to get rid of bad [TS]

00:29:42   judges that's good said what I swear to [TS]

00:29:48   God murder mami get up it doesn't [TS]

00:29:51   someone have to approve these things [TS]

00:29:52   that you just get to like paste it up [TS]

00:29:54   and it just goes in whatever you have to [TS]

00:29:55   say well the next best thing was that [TS]

00:29:59   the the next question was should the [TS]

00:30:02   city philadelphia rays 485 million [TS]

00:30:06   dollars in debt to finance [TS]

00:31:05   should drive buses special buses around [TS]

00:31:09   city and you find anybody sleeping on [TS]

00:31:11   the sidewalk in the tent is the scoop [TS]

00:31:13   them up in the bus and and where they go [TS]

00:31:16   where they go after that but unless they [TS]

00:31:19   love to get off [TS]

00:31:21   I think you got off wherever they want [TS]

00:31:23   to do what we see in the next 40 years [TS]

00:31:25   because whenever they wake up they can [TS]

00:31:27   get off if they want and it's gonna be [TS]

00:31:30   tremendous they can get off wherever [TS]

00:31:33   they want [TS]

00:31:34   ok but at ok ok so the bus comes along [TS]

00:31:40   these ideas group of the 10 people do [TS]

00:31:42   and I this is and and i'll tell you what [TS]

00:31:45   this is an opinion that i would not have [TS]

00:31:47   had if I haven't sped a lot of time in [TS]

00:31:50   downtown San Francisco over the last 10 [TS]

00:31:54   years [TS]

00:31:55   yeah but i'll just tell you that there [TS]

00:31:57   are people sleeping on the sidewalks in [TS]

00:31:59   San Francisco [TS]

00:32:00   whoo-hoo make the city and unpleasant [TS]

00:32:02   place to be there are people living on [TS]

00:32:06   this it's important these are not people [TS]

00:32:07   who take a nap as people who don't have [TS]

00:32:09   anywhere else to go [TS]

00:32:10   yeah and I am I you know where mom we're [TS]

00:32:14   trying to have fun [TS]

00:32:15   I'm not trying to make light of ya of of [TS]

00:32:18   a desperate situation but but but people [TS]

00:32:21   already right on the public transit you [TS]

00:32:23   know you ready [TS]

00:32:23   public transit you gotta you gotta have [TS]

00:32:25   a fairly comfortable place to be [TS]

00:32:27   yeah but I you know most of you know [TS]

00:32:29   what I'm suggesting that would be a bus [TS]

00:32:31   that has a toilet [TS]

00:32:34   oh nice okay obviously you got you [TS]

00:32:37   basically you've got they've got like a [TS]

00:32:38   stadium restroom on wheel every time we [TS]

00:32:40   have shower facilities at all would [TS]

00:32:42   maybe like a small library could you [TS]

00:32:44   could you get the boy i would like all [TS]

00:32:46   of those things i would vote for a [TS]

00:32:47   little plus you get a nice google bus i [TS]

00:32:49   would vote for all of those things i [TS]

00:32:51   would vote for the shower facility i [TS]

00:32:53   would vote for the small library and I [TS]

00:32:57   would honestly i would vote for the tax [TS]

00:33:01   increase that would pay for it honestly [TS]

00:33:03   yeah I I do feel like that would make [TS]

00:33:05   for a better City well if you'd never [TS]

00:33:10   find a house you should come out here [TS]

00:33:11   too soon too soon [TS]

00:33:16   there's an awful lot of people and again [TS]

00:33:23   i'm not trying to rub it in anybody's [TS]

00:33:25   face i'm not trying to say who you know [TS]

00:33:28   I voted for hillary clinton i think a [TS]

00:33:31   lot of people listen to this probably [TS]

00:33:32   voted for hillary clinton's I'm not [TS]

00:33:34   trying to say she should've won [TS]

00:33:37   you know my trying to rub in anybody's [TS]

00:33:39   face if you voted for the other guy but [TS]

00:33:41   there's an awful lot of people who voted [TS]

00:33:43   for Donald Trump who I would really like [TS]

00:33:45   for them to spend a day at like third [TS]

00:33:51   and market in San Francisco [TS]

00:33:53   yeah just stand on the corner for 12 [TS]

00:33:58   hours now I yeah yeah that mean that [TS]

00:34:03   kind I don't know that that gets at that [TS]

00:34:06   gets that a lot of the problems you look [TS]

00:34:08   at that i'm going to go into this but [TS]

00:34:10   did you look at that Washington Post [TS]

00:34:11   demographic break but yes i did way [TS]

00:34:15   oh this is gonna be interesting few [TS]

00:34:17   years because basically this isn't [TS]

00:34:18   pretty cool [TS]

00:34:20   nothing to find the link now I sent us [TS]

00:34:21   here I got I got it now I'll put it that [TS]

00:34:23   day [TS]

00:34:24   yeah they essentially and I think these [TS]

00:34:26   are exit polls so I you know take it [TS]

00:34:29   with a grain of salt but basically they [TS]

00:34:30   go in and do a full demographic [TS]

00:34:34   breakdown you know starting starting [TS]

00:34:36   with the basic numbers [TS]

00:34:37   then going through gender race education [TS]

00:34:39   party age and I think it's a pretty good [TS]

00:34:42   infographic that really tells a hell of [TS]

00:34:45   a story that I think many of us need to [TS]

00:34:47   really digest i love the fact that so [TS]

00:34:52   basically that they've got am like a lot [TS]

00:34:55   of a line of like so you say like for [TS]

00:34:59   example of a sex is a gender some woke [TS]

00:35:02   um so how many what what what percentage [TS]

00:35:07   voted blue right and then that's and I [TS]

00:35:10   think that's reflected so basically area [TS]

00:35:13   the circle is based on the size of the [TS]

00:35:15   demographic group and percentage of [TS]

00:35:16   votes obtained you actually kind of [TS]

00:35:18   three different very interesting data [TS]

00:35:20   points you get the who did what you get [TS]

00:35:22   the how that went [TS]

00:35:24   and then you get the like what [TS]

00:35:25   percentage of the total amount do they [TS]

00:35:27   represent and therein is quite a story [TS]

00:35:33   I it it's it it's a fascinating thing to [TS]

00:35:37   scroll through because I it there's days [TS]

00:35:41   it it works on a couple of dimensions [TS]

00:35:45   where the circles are the size of the [TS]

00:35:50   group so I don't like the total like [TS]

00:35:53   number like the per capita like how many [TS]

00:35:56   people are involved right right [TS]

00:35:58   it's like you see how far apart the two [TS]

00:36:00   groups are but the size of the circles [TS]

00:36:03   let you know [TS]

00:36:04   well you know I mean like aa sex men [TS]

00:36:10   versus women [TS]

00:36:11   yeah well the groups are obviously [TS]

00:36:13   humongous because you know it's almost [TS]

00:36:17   everybody is either a man or woman and [TS]

00:36:20   the race one where it's we know how did [TS]

00:36:26   white people vote how to black people [TS]

00:36:28   vote it shows you how many of the people [TS]

00:36:33   who actually voted are white or black or [TS]

00:36:37   Hispanic etc etc [TS]

00:36:40   and so you hear these numbers like you [TS]

00:36:42   hear that you know here's the numbers [TS]

00:36:46   for the this is from the page you're [TS]

00:36:48   saying and we'll put in the show notes [TS]

00:36:49   but the black vote went eighty percent [TS]

00:36:52   to the Democrats eight percent to Donald [TS]

00:36:57   Trump 2% to Gary dingus or whatever his [TS]

00:37:02   name is [TS]

00:37:02   yeah but the size of that circle right [TS]

00:37:05   let you know [TS]

00:37:06   ain't that big right Yusei like 8088 [TS]

00:37:09   well holy hell that's a blowout and then [TS]

00:37:12   you see the size vehicle hire a pi is [TS]

00:37:14   always around running exactly its as [TS]

00:37:17   it's a really interesting infographic in [TS]

00:37:22   my opinion it [TS]

00:37:23   it explains the election in a way that [TS]

00:37:27   feels true to me and it not obviously [TS]

00:37:31   not in a way that is like true like oh [TS]

00:37:34   this is the truth i want to hear because [TS]

00:37:36   the election did not turn out the way [TS]

00:37:37   that I wanted but sometimes when i get [TS]

00:37:41   real worked up and take pictures of my [TS]

00:37:42   TV and so I just sent you an image from [TS]

00:37:44   last night at the great state of [TS]

00:37:45   Pennsylvania in which you live and at [TS]

00:37:47   the point this was taken on if you got [TS]

00:37:50   that in your messages i gotta time this [TS]

00:37:52   was a look at that break down so they're [TS]

00:37:54   breaking down voting for the two parties [TS]

00:37:56   have our presidential candidates by city [TS]

00:37:59   suburbs and rural nap City 7324 Clinton [TS]

00:38:03   suburbs 40-percent dead-even rural [TS]

00:38:07   seventy-two percent from that that's I [TS]

00:38:12   remember I remember all the way back to [TS]

00:38:15   nineteen ninety-two and it was I mean [TS]

00:38:19   how old was I then she's Christ I was [TS]

00:38:20   only [TS]

00:38:22   Jesus Christ is that the first I think [TS]

00:38:26   that was the first election i could vote [TS]

00:38:27   in yeah [TS]

00:38:29   wow I I was like you know freshman in [TS]

00:38:32   college but I remember hearing james [TS]

00:38:36   carville on TV and at the time James [TS]

00:38:38   Carville was like the the horse [TS]

00:38:41   whisperer and Bill Clinton's ear you [TS]

00:38:43   know like yeah you know he's the guy [TS]

00:38:45   telling them what to do and james [TS]

00:38:47   carville described Pennsylvania as [TS]

00:38:49   Philadelphia on one side pittsburgh on [TS]

00:38:52   the other and alabama in the middle and [TS]

00:38:56   as a lifelong pennsylvanian I was like [TS]

00:39:00   oh yeah that's exactly what it is and as [TS]

00:39:03   a college kid who had just moved from [TS]

00:39:05   that sort of Alabama middle to one of [TS]

00:39:09   the city's all right the one of the [TS]

00:39:11   sides of the state [TS]

00:39:12   I was like yeah that's exactly right [TS]

00:39:14   that is totally right [TS]

00:39:15   scott simpson always used to say the [TS]

00:39:16   same thing he comes from a very rural [TS]

00:39:18   community he felt absolutely no [TS]

00:39:20   allegiance to either of those two cities [TS]

00:39:22   yes I got familiar I believe Scott is [TS]

00:39:25   from lancaster or in near lancaster hi [TS]

00:39:28   I didn't remember yeah I remember seeing [TS]

00:39:30   his in a Christian rock band company of [TS]

00:39:33   praise team is co really not like a stir [TS]

00:39:37   it's close enough and it is everybody i [TS]

00:39:40   know from Pennsylvania and it's actually [TS]

00:39:42   one of those things where it's like it [TS]

00:39:44   doesn't matter if you're a Democrat [TS]

00:39:45   Republican you you hear that you're like [TS]

00:39:48   oh yeah that sounds right right it does [TS]

00:39:51   it even if you're like pro Trump if [TS]

00:39:53   you're the guy you know somebody from [TS]

00:39:55   Pennsylvania who voted for Trump yeah [TS]

00:39:57   that sounds right it's you know dirty [TS]

00:39:59   liberals on Pittsburgh in' and [TS]

00:40:02   Philadelphia and good people in the [TS]

00:40:04   middle right and it's absolutely [TS]

00:40:10   striking it's at you know the picture [TS]

00:40:12   you just sent me is amazing the there [TS]

00:40:16   was that time last night where it was [TS]

00:40:19   trying to do the translation on time but [TS]

00:40:22   it was past my daughter's bed time that [TS]

00:40:25   was at the point of like Hello [TS]

00:40:27   oh you know what I should not have been [TS]

00:40:29   looking at is that stupid New York Times [TS]

00:40:31   little speedometer that all that was the [TS]

00:40:34   death of me that it really it was for me [TS]

00:40:38   to ever as soon as clear as Clinton it [TS]

00:40:40   was clearly i'll say some names i guess [TS]

00:40:42   because Clinton 82 for a really long [TS]

00:40:43   time they're like boo [TS]

00:40:45   it's a little bit and you get to 5050 [TS]

00:40:47   what and by the time is getting up at [TS]

00:40:50   one point then it's a greater than 95 [TS]

00:40:51   for the Republican candidate right and [TS]

00:40:54   at that was around the time when so i [TS]

00:40:56   was going back and forth between CNN and [TS]

00:40:59   CBS cbss John Dickerson who is flatly [TS]

00:41:02   the best he he was so good i'm not sure [TS]

00:41:06   I wish I you know what in hindsight onto [TS]

00:41:08   got it wouldn't change the result which [TS]

00:41:11   you know obviously the only thing that [TS]

00:41:13   really matters but in hindsight I wish [TS]

00:41:15   that I had CBS on I i watched MSNBC ok [TS]

00:41:19   at you know what it was that was the [TS]

00:41:21   worst decision I could've made on cuz [TS]

00:41:25   they were those are happy talk about it [TS]

00:41:28   would be okay or no it was it was more [TS]

00:41:30   like a I don't know it was something [TS]

00:41:35   about the the attitude they were taking [TS]

00:41:38   to the results that that really got me [TS]

00:41:41   where what I really want was just a [TS]

00:41:43   total pro who didn't have you know i'll [TS]

00:41:46   bet i didn't watch CBS but you know I'll [TS]

00:41:50   bet John Dickerson was exactly where it [TS]

00:41:52   was it was it was a pretty good crew bit [TS]

00:41:53   but when i flip back and forth and [TS]

00:41:55   sometimes CBS we go to local coverage [TS]

00:41:57   and i was like please don't tell me [TS]

00:41:58   about legal marijuana I need to see [TS]

00:42:00   what's happening with us national race [TS]

00:42:01   however CNN and it seems like fuck right [TS]

00:42:05   away by the way you guys had any [TS]

00:42:07   marijuana now congratulations you can [TS]

00:42:09   have your twenties right I'm the people [TS]

00:42:11   in New Jersey others like it [TS]

00:42:14   we're having the the most important in [TS]

00:42:18   my opinion the most important [TS]

00:42:20   presidential election in our lifetimes [TS]

00:42:22   and and then after the time was spent on [TS]

00:42:26   do the people in New Jersey get medical [TS]

00:42:29   marijuana [TS]

00:42:30   well ok so one nice thing is i think [TS]

00:42:32   they're finally getting their hands [TS]

00:42:33   around how to deal with those giant [TS]

00:42:35   touchscreens that's still kind of funny [TS]

00:42:36   to watch them struggle with oh my god on [TS]

00:42:38   MSNBC it was a whole horrible because [TS]

00:42:41   they keep hitting the wrong thing I [TS]

00:42:42   don't know in the guy kept complaining [TS]

00:42:44   about it on air [TS]

00:42:46   he was like goddamn this machine i don't [TS]

00:42:48   think they get time to practice like [TS]

00:42:50   nearly as much as like if you could see [TS]

00:42:52   your local preferred happily with with [TS]

00:42:53   with doing the weather report like that [TS]

00:42:55   that is a person who has been dealing [TS]

00:42:57   with a green screen and understands how [TS]

00:42:59   to rescue their arms in this case the [TS]

00:43:00   flying all over the place but what's the [TS]

00:43:02   point in the evening when they got to [TS]

00:43:03   where it was like okay well this is how [TS]

00:43:07   it's looking and this is right before it [TS]

00:43:08   went to Florida like pretty conclusively [TS]

00:43:11   yeah but he's going in it was it was all [TS]

00:43:14   a lie I i was felt like it was all we [TS]

00:43:17   could do is not say other still a chance [TS]

00:43:18   but he kept exhume and weighing on [TS]

00:43:20   broward and say well you know this could [TS]

00:43:22   still be proud and zooming in further [TS]

00:43:24   than saying when you compare that to [TS]

00:43:25   2012 and then you go back to keep going [TS]

00:43:28   to this these two counties in Michigan [TS]

00:43:30   saying that Detroit the story could [TS]

00:43:33   still be Detroit there could be like a [TS]

00:43:34   hundred fifty thousand people in Detroit [TS]

00:43:36   the show up in a minute and I'll yeah [TS]

00:43:37   that could be it [TS]

00:43:39   Detroit trying to hold that that was [TS]

00:43:42   that was a little bit of the MSNBC [TS]

00:43:44   experience too [TS]

00:43:45   yeah it was it was it was almost yeah [TS]

00:43:47   that's that's sort of a mirror because I [TS]

00:43:49   mean like you across the board and we [TS]

00:43:51   were I'm sure eventually gonna get to [TS]

00:43:52   our friend from South by Southwest but [TS]

00:43:54   um but there was a little bit of this [TS]

00:43:59   sort of you know what we're watching it [TS]

00:44:02   and where we were we came into it [TS]

00:44:05   optimistic we really did you know I mean [TS]

00:44:07   and and you know I don't think we're [TS]

00:44:09   unrealistic I didn't know everybody you [TS]

00:44:12   know sort of expected Hillary Clinton [TS]

00:44:15   win we went into it without at least [TS]

00:44:17   expected something within a normal range [TS]

00:44:19   but I was like you went into your [TS]

00:44:21   kitchen right to make cupcakes and kept [TS]

00:44:23   producing monitor lizard don't [TS]

00:44:25   understand what's happening right what [TS]

00:44:27   did and there I think they're struggling [TS]

00:44:29   with because they're going they can't [TS]

00:44:30   just say what the fuck is going on here [TS]

00:44:32   what the flock you can't you can't say [TS]

00:44:35   that on the TV Merlin [TS]

00:44:36   they gotta go like well Detroit could be [TS]

00:44:38   there could be i have a lot of you know [TS]

00:44:40   under performing with you know [TS]

00:44:44   get-out-the-vote a news alert that with [TS]

00:44:48   that is so true where I i honestly think [TS]

00:44:51   that that again I'm laughing because I i [TS]

00:44:55   am a white male with a job so you know [TS]

00:45:01   that I I i can afford to laugh but a you [TS]

00:45:06   know I'm crying on the inside because i [TS]

00:45:08   really do think that i'm not making [TS]

00:45:11   light of this election I i know i don't [TS]

00:45:14   think that's right i don't i don't think [TS]

00:45:15   that's coming across right i hope so i [TS]

00:45:17   just want to amp mm for size it as many [TS]

00:45:20   times as i can but i really do think [TS]

00:45:21   watching it live last night there was [TS]

00:45:24   there was this sort of like like we [TS]

00:45:29   can't say what the fuck [TS]

00:45:32   so therefore because we can't say what [TS]

00:45:35   the fuck were going to say stuff that [TS]

00:45:37   doesn't make any sense where they're [TS]

00:45:38   gonna get we have to we have to utilize [TS]

00:45:40   the other words that are in the parlance [TS]

00:45:42   for our business that don't get even [TS]

00:45:44   wear how what the fuck me this is right [TS]

00:45:46   and so they were saying things like hey [TS]

00:45:48   Hillary Clinton is down by 300,000 votes [TS]

00:45:52   in Florida but she might make up eighty [TS]

00:45:56   thousand votes in broward county so and [TS]

00:45:59   you're like wait you just said she's [TS]

00:46:02   down by three hundred thousand and she [TS]

00:46:04   maybe if everything goes right in [TS]

00:46:07   broward county might make up 80,000 I [TS]

00:46:10   you realize that's not even close to [TS]

00:46:13   making up the difference now this man I [TS]

00:46:15   don't think internet is what you know [TS]

00:46:16   was concentrating all the way in and I [TS]

00:46:19   don't even bother to go to Wisconsin is [TS]

00:46:20   that so in the bag it's not even gonna [TS]

00:46:21   be a problem right and i would turn to a [TS]

00:46:23   man I would say I am I miss hearing this [TS]

00:46:26   doesn't make any sense [TS]

00:46:28   and by the time I turned to her I i [TS]

00:46:30   would look and then all of a sudden [TS]

00:46:32   they're talking about Wisconsin wait [TS]

00:46:35   wait [TS]

00:46:36   put that man that guy with the glasses [TS]

00:46:38   back on and have him explain to me how [TS]

00:46:42   making up eighty thousand votes and in [TS]

00:46:45   this you know how doesn't them and [TS]

00:46:49   and.and they were on MSNBC they were [TS]

00:46:51   going through these contortions about [TS]

00:46:53   you know what they can call and when [TS]

00:46:55   they can call it whatever and I was like [TS]

00:46:57   saying to Amy I was like wait a minute [TS]

00:47:01   if you're saying she is down by three [TS]

00:47:04   hundred thousand and the most she can [TS]

00:47:07   make up as a bee [TS]

00:47:09   what in the world is the difference [TS]

00:47:12   where you can say we can call this and I [TS]

00:47:15   might just call it just fucking call the [TS]

00:47:17   goddamn thing you know I mean and and [TS]

00:47:20   here we are 24 hours later we've got [TS]

00:47:23   these results we see the results you [TS]

00:47:25   know and she didn't win for why couldn't [TS]

00:47:28   they call it when she was definitively [TS]

00:47:32   like best-case scenario down by two [TS]

00:47:34   hundred twenty thousand votes [TS]

00:47:36   i I don't understand is that this is a [TS]

00:47:39   phenomena in like when you're a little [TS]

00:47:41   kid I have to tell you I just remember [TS]

00:47:43   my talked about this before talking [TS]

00:47:44   about TV but I always hated election [TS]

00:47:47   nights as a kid it was so boring all the [TS]

00:47:49   shows get preempted and their parents [TS]

00:47:51   would sit there and watch this [TS]

00:47:52   incredibly boring thing you hear about [TS]

00:47:54   like Who your new alderman is yay like [TS]

00:47:56   where's happy days i can bring it and so [TS]

00:47:58   you know I knew this excruciating for my [TS]

00:48:00   daughter but I was like you know I think [TS]

00:48:02   we've kind of told this is a pretty big [TS]

00:48:04   deal and we're I won't get too personal [TS]

00:48:06   but like we had a lot of personal stake [TS]

00:48:08   all three of us had a lot of personal [TS]

00:48:09   stake in this [TS]

00:48:10   yes even my nine-year-old daughter maybe [TS]

00:48:12   especially my nine-year-old daughter a [TS]

00:48:15   lot of stake in this and so that made it [TS]

00:48:18   really difficult but um there's you you [TS]

00:48:21   learn as you get a little bit older like [TS]

00:48:23   when you first see the map when you're a [TS]

00:48:24   little kid you go what what like Oh [TS]

00:48:26   Texas well [TS]

00:48:28   Texas is a big State and it's a big deal [TS]

00:48:29   because there are a lot of electoral [TS]

00:48:30   votes but you know all those little [TS]

00:48:31   States you see running down the side [TS]

00:48:33   because it too small to identify some of [TS]

00:48:34   those are end up being really important [TS]

00:48:36   in other words the amount the amount of [TS]

00:48:38   red or blue on the map you learn to like [TS]

00:48:41   look at the numbers rather than the [TS]

00:48:43   pretty colors because that that's the [TS]

00:48:45   story right you know I'm saying like a [TS]

00:48:47   smart person understands that you can [TS]

00:48:49   for example has recently 2016 you can [TS]

00:48:52   win but the most votes and still not win [TS]

00:48:56   the election because that's not how the [TS]

00:48:57   electoral college works and i can [TS]

00:48:58   understand that my wife and I understand [TS]

00:49:00   that so you know you start seeing more [TS]

00:49:01   and more thereof the [TS]

00:49:02   red pop up and then they go to somewhere [TS]

00:49:04   like Michigan and all the sudden I felt [TS]

00:49:07   like I was seven years old again I was [TS]

00:49:09   like there's so much red on there and [TS]

00:49:12   they keep zooming in on these three [TS]

00:49:14   little blue areas but like it was very [TS]

00:49:17   profound to me you didn't have to undo [TS]

00:49:19   that idea because the colors are not [TS]

00:49:21   lining up the shapes without fucking up [TS]

00:49:23   and the numbers where we're not lining [TS]

00:49:25   up [TS]

00:49:26   yeah I and that was that was every night [TS]

00:49:29   that's why I want to locate this a [TS]

00:49:30   little bit in last night because over [TS]

00:49:32   the period of about 90 minutes the world [TS]

00:49:35   started to feel a little bit different [TS]

00:49:38   and at least a little bit different and [TS]

00:49:41   then it started to feel different [TS]

00:49:43   faster and faster and my breath was [TS]

00:49:46   taken away at several points that i do [TS]

00:49:51   out [TS]

00:49:52   I mean we're three hours time shifted [TS]

00:49:55   from you it but we were watching the [TS]

00:49:57   same thing at the same time and that is [TS]

00:49:59   exactly how I felt [TS]

00:50:01   exactly exactly I couldn't put it any [TS]

00:50:05   better especially and again like you [TS]

00:50:09   were saying with these was a [TS]

00:50:10   county-by-county results in Michigan [TS]

00:50:12   I you know I was just like what the you [TS]

00:50:16   know how can this be [TS]

00:50:18   how how can we how can we put how can [TS]

00:50:21   Hillary Clinton possibly win looking at [TS]

00:50:24   this right all right man but also some [TS]

00:50:27   2015 part of your brain is spinning [TS]

00:50:30   because the 2015 part of your brain goes [TS]

00:50:33   well even if there's three people in [TS]

00:50:34   that County how did three people in that [TS]

00:50:37   County choose to vote for the Republican [TS]

00:50:38   candidate right in my 2059 which I still [TS]

00:50:41   had just celebrated part of my brain is [TS]

00:50:43   and that's again now now i have a [TS]

00:50:45   different mind today but that that was [TS]

00:50:48   part of the cognitive dissonance for me [TS]

00:50:50   was even like looking straight numbers [TS]

00:50:52   and having having my ipad pro sideways [TS]

00:50:54   with multiple tabs open plus the side [TS]

00:50:56   screen and like an idiot like a monster [TS]

00:50:58   i'm looking at all this data and then [TS]

00:51:00   drilling down and New York Times [TS]

00:51:01   actually pretty good coverage on this [TS]

00:51:02   where you could go in and like drill [TS]

00:51:03   down into specific areas and see for [TS]

00:51:06   yourself what was going on and you could [TS]

00:51:08   just look at the numbers and the other [TS]

00:51:10   thing we told her kid I think this is a [TS]

00:51:11   good thing is like understand this is a [TS]

00:51:12   multivariate thing like there's a [TS]

00:51:14   certain number of electoral votes next [TS]

00:51:16   aight the state is comprised of counties [TS]

00:51:17   each of those counties are reporting in [TS]

00:51:19   different ways at different times and [TS]

00:51:20   shame on CNN for the amount of like 1% [TS]

00:51:23   reporting the special news only that [TS]

00:51:25   they had it was so gross but you can go [TS]

00:51:27   in and this this is a thing that [TS]

00:51:28   happened though and I guess this happens [TS]

00:51:30   everybody when their side is not winning [TS]

00:51:33   is that you start seeing that number go [TS]

00:51:35   up and you see sixty percent reported [TS]

00:51:37   you see 70-percent reporting you start [TS]

00:51:39   wondering how many more votes really [TS]

00:51:41   could be there in a box somewhere in [TS]

00:51:43   portland that will pull this out and [TS]

00:51:45   then like you're describing you're [TS]

00:51:47   describing I think you're very very [TS]

00:51:49   aptly describing that feeling of oh my [TS]

00:51:51   god just say it because I see it I see [TS]

00:51:55   it but I see I don't believe it I see it [TS]

00:51:57   why are you just saying it because oh my [TS]

00:51:59   god another one just turned red why is [TS]

00:52:00   someone not saying what's really [TS]

00:52:01   happening here and i really in my heart [TS]

00:52:04   believe that at least some I know [TS]

00:52:05   they're trying to be journalistically [TS]

00:52:06   canny and trying to be fair and trying [TS]

00:52:11   to do not freak out but I I honestly i [TS]

00:52:14   would bet you I bet you were going to [TS]

00:52:16   hear a lot about a lot of things and I [TS]

00:52:18   bet one of things were going to hear is [TS]

00:52:19   how many people just can't believe what [TS]

00:52:23   happened on numerous levels the the [TS]

00:52:27   unsewn the the failures or shortcomings [TS]

00:52:30   of everything from our own perception to [TS]

00:52:32   how we learn about what people think to [TS]

00:52:34   tell we choose to believe anybody else [TS]

00:52:36   could see the world I mean I feel like I [TS]

00:52:39   don't know I feel like I've just come [TS]

00:52:41   out of a culture something I'm just like [TS]

00:52:42   I I don't know what I even think anymore [TS]

00:52:44   i mean i know what I think I know how i [TS]

00:52:45   feel i'm here to talk to you about how I [TS]

00:52:46   feel but like I'm i don't i don't know [TS]

00:52:49   what to trust about my bringing it was [TS]

00:52:51   it was very frustrating i thought last [TS]

00:52:53   night because I really wanted what I [TS]

00:52:55   want is somebody who is like somebody [TS]

00:53:00   who knows his much shit about the [TS]

00:53:01   goddamn new macbook pros as i do i want [TS]

00:53:05   them somebody who knows that much about [TS]

00:53:06   the elections to tell me what the hell [TS]

00:53:09   is going on and I felt like I wasn't [TS]

00:53:12   getting it and I mean I felt like I was [TS]

00:53:14   getting people who were as loosely as [TS]

00:53:17   informed as i was going like I don't [TS]

00:53:20   know this seems kind of crazy this is [TS]

00:53:22   unexpected [TS]

00:53:24   it's like that and i'm looking at the [TS]

00:53:27   numbers on screen [TS]

00:53:28   i'm thinking like why won't somebody [TS]

00:53:30   just tell me Florida is already lost [TS]

00:53:32   like it it was at the point it was it [TS]

00:53:36   was at least two hours after the point [TS]

00:53:38   where me as a non-expert was looking at [TS]

00:53:40   Florida's numbers and thinking this is [TS]

00:53:43   gone before they said okay [TS]

00:53:46   Florida is is in the Trump column and [TS]

00:53:48   I'm like what [TS]

00:53:49   why did that take two hours that that [TS]

00:53:52   crazy and so the two you can actually [TS]

00:53:56   see this in my safari the the two things [TS]

00:53:59   that it says do you want to visit this [TS]

00:54:00   site on your iPad the two of those have [TS]

00:54:02   been 538 in the upshot shot is that a [TS]

00:54:05   really a really good job of graphically [TS]

00:54:07   displaying whatever information they had [TS]

00:54:09   and you know don't don't yell at them [TS]

00:54:12   they're just reporting the polls but one [TS]

00:54:14   of my favorite things to look at because [TS]

00:54:15   I it's very interesting is the how other [TS]

00:54:18   forecast compare area which I can use [TS]

00:54:21   I'm sure you've seen so this is not been [TS]

00:54:23   updated since yesterday but as of [TS]

00:54:33   know really contact they were very [TS]

00:54:34   conservative party together they got a [TS]

00:54:36   lot of heat and the one percent now [TS]

01:07:15   remember somebody telling me that like [TS]

01:07:16   when you went to 7-11 that you had to be [TS]

01:07:19   careful how much ice you put in the cup [TS]

01:07:21   but I san antonio yeah that's right you [TS]

01:07:23   write that that no matter what size cup [TS]

01:07:26   you got they'd fill it up with ice and [TS]

01:07:28   you'd get the same amount of soda even [TS]

01:07:31   if you've got the 64 ounce which is [TS]

01:07:33   bullshit like a 64 ounce soda is this is [TS]

01:07:37   an enormous amount of Sona but there [TS]

01:07:39   were people who told me in my youth that [TS]

01:07:42   that that's how they get you if you like [TS]

01:07:44   the secret menu for cheapskates it's [TS]

01:07:46   like that if you can get away with a you [TS]

01:07:48   don't listen so you know when you go to [TS]

01:07:51   to take home and they have to give it to [TS]

01:07:52   you [TS]

01:07:53   so at least we used to run a restaurant [TS]

01:07:56   and when I was a kid and will be the [TS]

01:08:00   weekend would come in and they came [TS]

01:08:01   there to be unhappy together and and [TS]

01:08:03   they would come in and they would same [TS]

01:08:05   people complain about the same things [TS]

01:08:06   every time there was one couple that [TS]

01:08:07   always came in always got the same [TS]

01:08:09   really crappy deuce right by the bar and [TS]

01:08:12   then they complain about the noise in [TS]

01:08:13   the bar and then they would steal [TS]

01:08:14   literally everything off the table to [TS]

01:08:16   every week they would take all the [TS]

01:08:17   silverware they would take all this with [TS]

01:08:19   the salt-and-pepper shakers they would [TS]

01:08:20   take the sweet low they would take the [TS]

01:08:21   sugar they would take the flower [TS]

01:10:24   paid member and as a teenager every day [TS]

01:10:29   every single day in the summer [TS]

01:10:38   basketball from like 10 11am told one in [TS]

01:10:48   we would head over to the pool and [TS]

01:10:51   that's where we would go [TS]

01:10:52   and at the pool there was a snack bar [TS]

01:10:57   and the snack bar sold a you know like [TS]

01:11:01   Rick Reese's Peanut Butter Cubs swedish [TS]

01:11:04   fish and the ending your entire [TS]

01:11:11   swedish fish this which were a penny [TS]

01:11:15   apiece and they'd count them out it [TS]

01:11:26   pool with here and there is one before [TS]

01:11:27   you go back in and they had a soda found [TS]

01:12:06   it really you really develop prunus [TS]

01:12:09   really comes out it you don't realize [TS]

01:12:12   how pruning dr pepper is until you have [TS]

01:12:13   it at room temperature and number two it [TS]

01:12:16   taste like it tastes like some kind of a [TS]

01:12:18   19th century elixir this is the point [TS]

01:12:20   but this you're gonna love this Merlin [TS]

01:12:22   you're gonna love it [TS]

01:12:23   about two or three weeks after i started [TS]

01:12:25   ordering my sodas no ice and my friends [TS]

01:12:28   were doing the same it wasn't just me it [TS]

01:12:30   was a bunch of us they changed their [TS]

01:12:33   policy and if you hold your soda no ice [TS]

01:12:36   they only filled it to one inch below [TS]

01:12:39   the cup [TS]

01:12:41   wow so if you said support portion [TS]

01:12:48   control right so they end and we would [TS]

01:12:51   say like give me a large dr pepper no [TS]

01:12:54   ice and they'd only fill it an inch [TS]

01:12:56   below the rim and the NN you'd be like [TS]

01:12:59   well wait that's not fill and they'd be [TS]

01:13:01   like well that's where the ice would [TS]

01:13:35   hand the fact that they started screwing [TS]

01:13:37   you on how much Soda it reaffirmed the [TS]

01:13:40   the initial reason why you did it which [TS]

01:16:33   hours based on how much I drank last [TS]

01:16:35   night so you know you gave yourself a [TS]

01:16:39   contact high [TS]

01:16:40   it's it's you know yeah i know i mean [TS]

01:16:43   it's table stakes let's just face a [TS]

01:16:46   complicated time for sure I think it [TS]

01:16:48   might be enjoyable but here is what I [TS]

01:16:50   thought I i really did a and i'm going [TS]

01:16:54   to be deadly serious here and again it's [TS]

01:16:57   a political it doesn't matter what side [TS]

01:16:59   you're on [TS]

01:16:59   but there was a moment yesterday let's [TS]

01:17:02   say 24 hours ago and and as we record [TS]

01:17:05   you know [TS]

01:17:06   no results r in so it wasn't even like [TS]

01:17:09   oh it looks bad for her [TS]

01:17:12   looks good for him or whatever right 24 [TS]

01:17:14   hours ago I thought you know what I [TS]

01:17:18   should have done a show by now I should [TS]

01:17:21   have had a new episode [TS]

01:17:22   I you know I don't have a regular [TS]

01:17:24   schedule I don't record on a regular [TS]

01:17:25   schedule and the reason i didn't record [TS]

01:17:28   a show is either [TS]

01:17:29   but i can't i'm so distracted by this [TS]

01:17:32   election [TS]

01:17:33   I don't want to do a show because it's [TS]

01:17:35   all I can think about and I realized in [TS]

01:17:37   hindsight I I should have done a show [TS]

01:17:40   not from myself but because hey I'll bet [TS]

01:17:43   tens of thousands of people who listen [TS]

01:17:45   to my show would love to just distract [TS]

01:17:48   themselves with me talking about the the [TS]

01:17:50   goddamn key travel on a new macbook pro [TS]

01:17:53   like absolutely right [TS]

01:17:54   like two hours of me talking about what [TS]

01:17:57   it's like the type on the new macbook [TS]

01:17:59   pro it in it in my mind was like well [TS]

01:18:04   what a waste of fucking time but in [TS]

01:18:05   hindsight I thought like oh that would [TS]

01:18:08   have been actually would have been great [TS]

01:18:10   for the people who love this stuff that [TS]

01:18:12   I do and I should have done it and i [TS]

01:18:15   woke up today and I thought well now [TS]

01:18:17   I've got to get Marland yeah it's no I I [TS]

01:18:21   mean basically it's been a really weird [TS]

01:18:23   morning and my only thought was that [TS]

01:18:26   like i said in text you my only plan for [TS]

01:18:28   this entire day was to try to stay [TS]

01:18:30   saying and clean the shit out of the car [TS]

01:18:32   and my whole plan for today was like my [TS]

01:18:36   wife bike to work today and I was like [TS]

01:19:05   she's not a holiday party yet you know [TS]

01:19:08   the reason he didn't get an invitation [TS]

01:19:10   is because you asked for an invite for [TS]

01:25:10   the needle move past the fifty percent [TS]

01:25:11   that in that 2015 part of my brain said [TS]

01:25:14   calm the fuck down [TS]

01:25:16   it's there's no there's no way I mean [TS]

01:25:19   how late was it before how it was before [TS]

01:25:22   you started to flip and then how long [TS]

01:25:24   did it take for you to really say oh [TS]

01:25:26   shit that's a good point as a very good [TS]

01:25:28   question i would need they're playing [TS]

01:25:30   chances and you expected to go back and [TS]

01:25:31   forth this is how it works electoral [TS]

01:25:33   math you know what I i started to feel [TS]

01:25:38   really bad in my stomach when it took so [TS]

01:25:43   long to call Virginia because I I [TS]

01:25:46   Florida European authorities you guys [TS]

01:25:48   big state and replace yeah and talk two [TS]

01:25:50   time zones like I'm not going on in [TS]

01:25:53   florida and I I am I'm enough of a [TS]

01:25:56   political nerd where I kind of I I [TS]

01:26:00   there's you know [TS]

01:26:03   I I do feel like this election flipped a [TS]

01:26:06   lot of the conventional wisdom but the [TS]

01:26:08   conventional wisdom is based still [TS]

01:26:10   basically true and it you know the [TS]

01:26:15   Virginia being so long was like a really [TS]

01:26:20   bad sign associated you know Hillary [TS]

01:26:22   Clinton ended up winning Virginia but [TS]

01:26:24   the fact that it took so long to call it [TS]

01:26:26   was really wear it it is so i would say [TS]

01:26:30   at least on the east coast time it was [TS]

01:26:32   around I don't know around ten o'clock [TS]

01:26:35   so probably seven o'clock your time [TS]

01:26:37   where I just thought the fact that [TS]

01:26:41   they're not willing to call Virginia is [TS]

01:26:42   a really bad son [TS]

01:26:44   yeah I think I started to really get to [TS]

01:26:49   fear a little before that last night you [TS]

01:26:51   know i do the benefits like where if you [TS]

01:26:53   go and buy this restaurant school gets [TS]

01:26:54   money we track you do that so [TS]

01:26:56   m-mom girls went out to get some okay [TS]

01:26:59   dokay place pokeball and they were going [TS]

01:27:03   for a while and like they came back in [TS]

01:27:06   and I was like this is not good but it [TS]

01:27:11   was it was a situation where like I you [TS]

01:27:14   know I follows enough to know here's the [TS]

01:27:15   battleground states i don't i don't need [TS]

01:27:16   an infographic to understand the [TS]

01:27:17   importance of that being somebody who's [TS]

01:27:19   followed this more closely than I would [TS]

01:27:21   ever meet in public until today I knew [TS]

01:27:23   that there's a handful of places that [TS]

01:27:24   are going to make a difference right [TS]

01:27:26   anyway I explain this with my kids I [TS]

01:27:27   mean yeah California's got a lot of [TS]

01:27:29   electoral votes but say what did they [TS]

01:27:30   say about companies that's dead so you [TS]

01:27:33   know don't take pics into the price or [TS]

01:27:35   built into the price we go into this [TS]

01:27:36   knowing that there's a really good [TS]

01:27:38   chance i mean there's a way beyond good [TS]

01:27:40   chance the California is going to go [TS]

01:27:41   this way there's a very good there's a [TS]

01:27:42   you know again a very good chance that [TS]

01:27:44   say utah is going to go this way etc etc [TS]

01:27:46   etc so you really focus on it's like [TS]

01:27:49   we're going to worry about the ponds [TS]

01:27:50   we're going to worry about the road [TS]

01:27:51   that's right in front of us here these [TS]

01:27:52   are the big things and it really kept [TS]

01:27:55   going ok you know ha ha here we go [TS]

01:27:58   not gonna have a drink this is going to [TS]

01:28:00   be fine and I just kept thinking okay [TS]

01:28:02   this time for a few of these to go from [TS]

01:28:05   white to blue and I kept thinking is [TS]

01:28:08   really really feels like it's really [TS]

01:28:10   time for somebody to go from light blue [TS]

01:28:11   to like well this seems quite a regular [TS]

01:28:15   yr more [TS]

01:28:17   are these not looking to blue and that's [TS]

01:28:19   where i got to the headspace here and [TS]

01:28:20   where you're like what is taking so long [TS]

01:28:24   we thought that was going to be one of [TS]

01:28:27   the firewall states like what happened [TS]

01:28:29   with that and I I depth along with a lot [TS]

01:28:32   of other people watching this that's [TS]

01:28:33   probably around the time we used to do [TS]

01:28:35   we have the WTF maybe a loud moment of [TS]

01:28:38   going like you know what if this is [TS]

01:28:41   something I was a fundamentally [TS]

01:28:42   different because it doesn't like it [TS]

01:28:43   started as an election and turned into a [TS]

01:28:45   tennis game it was an election there's [TS]

01:28:46   an election but at the same time there [TS]

01:28:48   are so many things that we thought to [TS]

01:28:51   some level of certainty we understood [TS]

01:28:53   about this and I have to tell me I'm [TS]

01:28:55   trying to keep coming back to this is [TS]

01:28:56   where my emotions in my mind are today [TS]

01:28:58   is I'm still stunned [TS]

01:29:02   I'm just I'm still stunned with how much [TS]

01:29:03   i did not understand about what was [TS]

01:29:06   happening and then you go and you look [TS]

01:29:08   at the polls and you go and you look at [TS]

01:29:09   the reporting on all of this and I think [TS]

01:29:11   it's probably about five times worse for [TS]

01:29:13   a journalist today you know what I mean [TS]

01:29:16   like listen to these folks just sit and [TS]

01:29:18   listen to the NPR podcast this morning [TS]

01:29:20   and they're just like yeah this is real [TS]

01:29:23   different than anything we had imagined [TS]

01:29:25   could happen [TS]

01:29:26   I so what we don't do we rule we rule [TS]

01:29:29   out i mean just to get this out of the [TS]

01:29:31   way because there's certainly some part [TS]

01:29:32   of your brain that goes huh [TS]

01:29:35   it's weird like if I were going to make [TS]

01:29:37   a program that affected the elections if [TS]

01:29:39   I were going to do some kind of an [TS]

01:29:40   exploit I would make it look close for a [TS]

01:29:41   while and then win by a little bit like [TS]

01:29:43   you're a gambler right buttons are we [TS]

01:29:45   rolling that out do we feel like that's [TS]

01:29:47   that's probably not going to get out of [TS]

01:29:49   the way so we can move on but yeah I [TS]

01:29:51   don't think that meddling and I don't I [TS]

01:29:54   don't I don't think so i think it's a [TS]

01:29:56   totally legit election and I know the [TS]

01:29:58   problem there there was there was a [TS]

01:30:00   period between i would say between like [TS]

01:30:04   eight and ten eastern time last night [TS]

01:30:06   like we we had MSNBC on before eight but [TS]

01:30:13   aight was really when we you know we [TS]

01:30:15   that's just when real results like this [TS]

01:30:17   one pole start closing and you start [TS]

01:30:19   being able to say something right so [TS]

01:30:20   from eight to ten I was kind of rolling [TS]

01:30:23   my eyes and [TS]

01:30:25   and I I kind of felt like MSNBC was [TS]

01:30:28   sandbagging it like to make it look [TS]

01:30:30   close there was like the Arctic their [TS]

01:30:32   sandbags a great we're forever like [TS]

01:30:34   they're milking this this is their last [TS]

01:30:35   chance [TS]

01:30:36   yeah we need to make this seem like a [TS]

01:30:37   horse race up to and then there were [TS]

01:30:39   kept saying every everyone kept saying [TS]

01:30:40   how close it was that right watchword of [TS]

01:30:42   the night [TS]

01:30:43   this is so much closer than anybody [TS]

01:30:45   thought and and there was there was an [TS]

01:30:47   interchange between Rachel Maddow and [TS]

01:30:52   what's the guy's name is the the guy who [TS]

01:30:56   started got fired from them big seed at [TS]

01:31:00   NBC [TS]

01:31:01   oh that Tom Brokaw now but he got [TS]

01:31:04   demoted not fired but demoted [TS]

01:31:06   hello Brian Williams violence that's it [TS]

01:31:08   yeah there was an in exchange between [TS]

01:31:11   Brian Williams and rachel maddow where [TS]

01:31:14   they they they kind of went meta and [TS]

01:31:18   they were like we're not fucking with [TS]

01:31:21   you we you know [TS]

01:31:23   honest to god this is up in the air as [TS]

01:31:26   as we're making it seem and it was right [TS]

01:31:30   around that that ten o'clock at night [TS]

01:31:32   moment where where you know where I [TS]

01:31:35   thought like the fact that they're not [TS]

01:31:37   willing to call Virginia yet is like [TS]

01:31:39   this is something is going on and that [TS]

01:31:42   you know that's where I thought hey this [TS]

01:31:44   isn't just you know the TV you know [TS]

01:31:47   they're they're not just playing this [TS]

01:31:48   for ratings right right yeah I felt [TS]

01:31:52   something similar and I CBS did a really [TS]

01:31:54   good job didn't love every single one of [TS]

01:31:56   the folks on I think they could have [TS]

01:31:57   done with fewer than six people and just [TS]

01:31:59   missed let's talk more but it was it was [TS]

01:32:01   a very good group but i felt a similar [TS]

01:32:04   thing a lot of what i was looking at and [TS]

01:32:06   that's when we were talking earlier [TS]

01:32:08   about the you know screaming WTF i don't [TS]

01:32:11   know why i'm suddenly so precious about [TS]

01:32:12   language but but there there there did [TS]

01:32:15   get to be this feeling that you're [TS]

01:32:17   describing of almost like like we need [TS]

01:32:21   to break the fourth wall for a minute [TS]

01:32:22   here [TS]

01:32:22   yeah like we understand that is [TS]

01:32:23   performed a performance aspect of this i [TS]

01:32:26   mean a polling site is going to get less [TS]

01:32:30   traffic if it's a solid 8514 [TS]

01:32:37   for a year if it's a pretty solid 8514 [TS]

01:32:41   for a year thats not gonna get as much [TS]

01:32:43   traffic as something where those numbers [TS]

01:32:44   are changing around so we get cynical [TS]

01:32:46   about that we understand clickbait and [TS]

01:32:47   all that kind of stuff but i agree i [TS]

01:32:48   think there's a certain pointer maybe I [TS]

01:32:50   was just inferring this with my own [TS]

01:32:53   increasingly frazzled mentality but I [TS]

01:32:56   really felt like they're like they were [TS]

01:32:58   struggling with it too and so we're [TS]

01:33:01   avoiding getting getting to this but [TS]

01:33:02   like you know the poles who everybody [TS]

01:33:08   and you know and like you you go listen [TS]

01:33:09   to anybody without oxygen text today [TS]

01:33:11   like I've listened to the 538 podcast [TS]

01:33:13   and you know between eight and Harry [TS]

01:33:15   they're always trying to say like tamp [TS]

01:33:16   down this like irrational exuberance [TS]

01:33:18   about what this means and like honestly [TS]

01:33:20   you know they got burned pretty bad on [TS]

01:33:23   Trump because at one point he said he's [TS]

01:33:25   now famous for saying that he thought [TS]

01:33:26   Trump have killed him saying his name [TS]

01:33:28   had a less than twenty percent chance of [TS]

01:33:30   becoming the GOP candidate and that [TS]

01:33:32   really came back to bite him and I think [TS]

01:33:34   he clamped down super hard with the [TS]

01:33:36   model [TS]

01:33:36   all right listen that show along how [TS]

01:33:38   they develop the model updates them all [TS]

01:33:39   what happened with the model but I i [TS]

01:33:42   think they have all along with trying to [TS]

01:33:45   tamp that down but I'm i had this really [TS]

01:33:48   sick feeling where I I i want to hear [TS]

01:33:50   this but I don't want to hear this I [TS]

01:33:51   want to hear what they have to say [TS]

01:33:53   because they were the most conservative [TS]

01:33:54   and it was still so I SAT you and I [TS]

01:33:59   haven't seen up the side by side yet I [TS]

01:34:01   have not seen a side-by-side on how it [TS]

01:34:04   turned out versus what each polling site [TS]

01:34:06   modeled but that's going to be a hell of [TS]

01:34:11   a story like well what parts of that [TS]

01:34:13   broke down how I breakdown i mean i'd [TS]

01:34:15   like to think of myself as an empathetic [TS]

01:34:16   person i'm fond of quoting that old [TS]

01:34:19   grimoire movie and saying everybody has [TS]

01:34:21   their reasons like I think I'm a fairly [TS]

01:34:22   empathetic person about this but i did [TS]

01:34:25   not realize how deep [TS]

01:34:27   something was in this election how deep [TS]

01:34:31   some set of feelings and I think there's [TS]

01:34:34   a variety of feelings i think just [TS]

01:34:35   calling it racist or misogynistic is a [TS]

01:34:38   little short-sighted there's something [TS]

01:34:39   maybe even deeper than that going on [TS]

01:34:41   here and I call that way wrong [TS]

01:34:44   yeah and it's you know it is clearly i [TS]

01:34:49   mean you know subtract white men [TS]

01:34:51   and the election is a blowout for four [TS]

01:34:55   pillar in the model but a lot of white [TS]

01:34:58   women came out I i just really crazy [TS]

01:35:00   bright their day and it's weird like [TS]

01:35:03   what is the difference so why was the [TS]

01:35:06   white whether your men or women angle so [TS]

01:35:12   definitive here and not when the black [TS]

01:35:17   guy was running the last two elections [TS]

01:35:19   you know I mean like he know yeah you [TS]

01:35:21   know I mean look at the margin look at [TS]

01:35:22   the margins look at the margins and [TS]

01:35:23   again about God listen to me I fucking [TS]

01:35:25   hate myself i'm at the margins in the [TS]

01:35:27   battleground states but look at the [TS]

01:35:28   margins the the 08 12 and and Hillary [TS]

01:35:31   margins and wilkes-barre [TS]

01:35:34   I mean I don't that you pronounce it [TS]

01:35:35   that's one that obama ran away with yeah [TS]

01:35:37   it's it it will help many points [TS]

01:35:40   Pennsylvania is gone blue since 92 [TS]

01:35:44   I think it's crazy it's really really [TS]

01:35:47   weird and and it's you know turnout was [TS]

01:35:50   a phenomenal in Philadelphia you know it [TS]

01:35:53   was you know there were you know I don't [TS]

01:35:55   know if what you were watching you know [TS]

01:35:57   you said you were watching CBS and CNN [TS]

01:36:00   yeah but on on MSNBC that kept cutting [TS]

01:36:02   to Philadelphia and they were showing [TS]

01:36:04   like crazy long lines like North [TS]

01:36:07   Carolina North Carolina you see a line [TS]

01:36:08   where somebody takes the iphone right [TS]

01:36:09   the important mode and walks along and [TS]

01:36:12   you just see several hundred black [TS]

01:36:15   people waiting to vote you're right [TS]

01:36:16   clearly part of this one they do and [TS]

01:36:19   they say like the whole percentage [TS]

01:36:20   reporting well what if we don't know how [TS]

01:36:22   many people have actually voted right [TS]

01:36:23   but then you keep going like maybe maybe [TS]

01:36:25   this is really gonna pull it out maybe [TS]

01:36:26   North Carolina is going to be the one I [TS]

01:36:28   think what they're gonna you know for [TS]

01:36:29   whatever reason they're going to show I [TS]

01:36:31   I think the results will show that the [TS]

01:36:33   turnout in the middle of all these [TS]

01:36:35   states where you know the rural areas [TS]

01:36:38   that that that turnout was just [TS]

01:36:41   phenomenal it and hasn't been even you [TS]

01:36:46   know with you know you know in the obama [TS]

01:36:51   election years it you know for whatever [TS]

01:36:54   reason Trump turn these people out and [TS]

01:36:56   it's you know I don't get it but it's [TS]

01:36:59   there on any dashing bit did you and [TS]

01:41:13   talk to somebody important as anything [TS]

01:41:14   that yeah me with that they're in [TS]

01:41:16   portland there in Ireland they position [TS]

01:41:19   these people strategically around the [TS]

01:41:21   world so that when you need tech support [TS]

01:41:23   if you need tech support you can get [TS]

01:41:26   somebody on the horn [TS]

01:41:28   it's like the doctor strange portals [TS]

01:41:30   protecting the globe with these [TS]

01:41:32   three equidistant points and they put an [TS]

01:41:34   entire web of support over the earth and [TS]

01:41:42   called his name is service again it's [TS]

01:41:44   called Squarespace an hour i think [TS]

01:41:46   they're going places [TS]

01:41:47   I think you're going to hear about him I [TS]

01:41:48   think you I think I keep in mind if you [TS]

01:41:51   have a notion for a website go to [TS]

01:41:54   squarespace com remember the code talk [TS]

01:41:57   show know that and you'll get ten [TS]

01:41:59   percent off but you don't think I mean [TS]

01:42:01   honestly you don't even need ten percent [TS]

01:42:02   off just even if you forget the code [TS]

01:42:04   just go there and sign up it it's it's a [TS]

01:42:06   great service and it could be somebody [TS]

01:42:08   in your life today who needs this site [TS]

01:42:11   and they don't know what you do that's [TS]

01:42:12   the thing ya know you do not want to be [TS]

01:42:14   in the webmaster business you don't want [TS]

01:42:15   to make it for preschool for your church [TS]

01:42:17   group [TS]

01:42:18   you don't want to be doing that you want [TS]

01:42:19   to get out of that business where you've [TS]

01:42:20   got to know the ssh login to be able to [TS]

01:42:22   know you don't need to do that anymore [TS]

01:42:24   tell your friends and your family about [TS]

01:42:26   this site because it's perfect for [TS]

01:42:28   somebody in your life [TS]

01:42:29   yeah that's actually I mean you know I'm [TS]

01:42:32   tongue-in-cheek on this whole thing [TS]

01:42:34   where you know hard jumping in on this [TS]

01:42:37   that's actually probably the single best [TS]

01:42:40   advice about Squarespace is that keep in [TS]

01:42:42   mind for people who don't listen to [TS]

01:42:44   shows like the talk show because exactly [TS]

01:42:46   like if your kids you know [TS]

01:42:50   preschool or the church or whatever [TS]

01:42:53   needs a website guaranteed that is a [TS]

01:42:56   better idea than you jumping in and [TS]

01:42:58   saying oh yeah I'll you know jump in and [TS]

01:43:01   you know sh and then start a index dot [TS]

01:43:05   HTML web you know it [TS]

01:43:08   forget it just go to squarespace and cut [TS]

01:43:11   yourself out of it totally traditions ok [TS]

01:43:15   yourself out of it they're just got to [TS]

01:43:16   run with that right but it's only true [TS]

01:43:19   though [TS]

01:43:22   oh um I think we're gonna get okay yeah [TS]

01:43:27   i think you will too [TS]

01:43:28   I am I share your interests in obsession [TS]

01:43:31   with the whole idea of story [TS]

01:43:33   let's talk about this i would i'm doing [TS]

01:43:35   a new show the couple friends of mine [TS]

01:43:36   were talking last week about that steve [TS]

01:43:38   jobs lost interview that you can see on [TS]

01:43:41   netflix and I was realizing i forgive me [TS]

01:43:43   if you've heard this if you want 25 [TS]

01:43:44   people listen that show but I i'm very [TS]

01:43:46   interested in the idea of how Apple and [TS]

01:43:47   steve jobs and pixar are so interesting [TS]

01:43:50   the idea of story story about the [TS]

01:43:51   company story as a as a thing that we [TS]

01:43:53   create and I wasn't trying to make the [TS]

01:43:54   case that apple also if you accept the [TS]

01:43:58   notion that story is an abstraction [TS]

01:43:59   layer their computers and their devices [TS]

01:44:02   are stories to their taking out all of [TS]

01:44:04   the inessential things and telling a [TS]

01:44:05   great story with the minimum number of [TS]

01:44:06   components needed to tell the story [TS]

01:44:08   correctly so I'm thinking a lot about [TS]

01:44:10   story and now today i'm thinking more [TS]

01:44:12   about story because I just down i feel [TS]

01:44:16   like with the with our president-elect [TS]

01:44:19   right now you describe something earlier [TS]

01:44:21   well is that is this a victory for him [TS]

01:44:23   there's a victory for the party is it a [TS]

01:44:25   defeat of the opposing party it's hard [TS]

01:44:27   to know right now but the one thing i do [TS]

01:44:28   feel that I need to learn more about [TS]

01:44:30   before I try to do anything intelligent [TS]

01:44:32   rational is to understand what stories [TS]

01:44:36   he told whether they're true weather [TS]

01:44:38   good weather accurate weather kind [TS]

01:44:40   whether they're decent whether they're [TS]

01:44:41   respectful whatever stories he's telling [TS]

01:44:43   meant a lot to people and I think [TS]

01:44:45   different parts of that story many [TS]

01:44:46   things to different people and a lot of [TS]

01:44:48   the folks in those red states found a [TS]

01:44:50   way to overlook 125 terrible things [TS]

01:44:54   about him because there is something [TS]

01:44:55   about that story that work for them and [TS]

01:44:57   the failure of imagination for me as i [TS]

01:44:59   said here today is that I don't think I [TS]

01:45:01   got that story well enough and I think [TS]

01:45:03   like everybody else i missed it i don't [TS]

01:45:05   know what's gonna change as a result of [TS]

01:45:06   that but i don't know how i proceeded to [TS]

01:45:07   do anything intelligently until I [TS]

01:45:09   understand what I got wrong I don't [TS]

01:45:10   point a finger [TS]

01:45:11   I don't want to I don't want to yell at [TS]

01:45:13   us nine I want to first understand like [TS]

01:45:15   how i got it wrong and that's that's and [TS]

01:45:17   I think I didn't get the story right [TS]

01:45:18   yeah [TS]

01:45:20   ah so I am of the opinion that in 2011 [TS]

01:45:28   that you can yell ralph nader that Ralph [TS]

01:45:32   Nader really fucked that one up [TS]

01:45:35   and it you don't even want to get my [TS]

01:45:37   wife you've probably heard doing because [TS]

01:45:39   i think that one is she has a few hot [TS]

01:45:43   button issues a hot-button issues and [TS]

01:45:44   and Ralph Nader in 2000 as one of them [TS]

01:45:47   is that Ralph Nader really fucked that [TS]

01:45:50   one up at and I don't feel like this is [TS]

01:45:55   that at all [TS]

01:45:57   I i'm with you i don't have any [TS]

01:45:59   animosity towards the third party [TS]

01:46:02   candidates towards jill stein or a [TS]

01:46:05   Joseon activity whatever the guy's name [TS]

01:46:08   is that the park is connectivity [TS]

01:46:10   yeah the guy who doesn't know where [TS]

01:46:11   Aleppo is you know me and impose that [TS]

01:46:14   brazilian restaurant in Philadelphia you [TS]

01:46:15   know what that I think that's never [TS]

01:46:17   that's the doctor is a 12th rule i love [TS]

01:46:21   if you yellow you always get you get a [TS]

01:46:24   sec let's get a fresh cut of the house [TS]

01:46:27   sirloin you're like me and you're gonna [TS]

01:46:29   heart that I don't fill up on the left [TS]

01:46:33   this isn't that at all [TS]

01:46:35   it's very different you know it's you [TS]

01:46:38   know me you know I tweeted it I I you [TS]

01:46:41   know what you know I dyed my it comes [TS]

01:46:44   out on Twitter I tweet a lot looser than [TS]

01:46:48   I blog and even on this show [TS]

01:46:51   even you know I I'd you know I'm loser [TS]

01:46:54   on Twitter then I am anywhere else and I [TS]

01:46:56   tweeted before the i think it was even [TS]

01:47:00   before [TS]

01:47:02   yeah i think it was like two days ago [TS]

01:47:04   but where where the Trump team had [TS]

01:47:07   suggested that they're gonna you know [TS]

01:47:10   point Rudy Giuliani as attorney general [TS]

01:47:12   and could you could not put those [TS]

01:47:16   announcements and Gingrich you could not [TS]

01:47:18   have that in Mad Magazine have any [TS]

01:47:19   possible and newt gingrich is Secretary [TS]

01:47:22   of State and you know maybe that's [TS]

01:47:24   actually you know at this point maybe [TS]

01:47:25   that's going to come to pass and like [TS]

01:47:27   you said they're being sounds like [TS]

01:47:30   something that magazine but honest to [TS]

01:47:32   god at least a there there's a certain [TS]

01:47:36   honesty to it you know I mean like I i [TS]

01:47:38   think it's preposterous i don't agree [TS]

01:47:40   that I think it's terrible but if it [TS]

01:47:43   at least they're saying this is how bad [TS]

01:47:46   it's gonna be you know there are this is [TS]

01:47:48   how you know you know I say bad but at [TS]

01:47:52   least you know this is how you know that [TS]

01:47:55   different [TS]

01:47:56   how different is going to be mila i [TS]

01:47:58   think so i think we can fairly say in a [TS]

01:47:59   non-partisan way things are gonna be a [TS]

01:48:01   little different for a while [TS]

01:48:02   yes i do you think that's exactly right [TS]

01:48:07   but there is an attempt to the video of [TS]

01:48:09   obama high-fiving little kid dressed [TS]

01:48:10   like Superman yeah then he fell down he [TS]

01:48:13   he [TS]

01:48:14   Superman high-five me fell back like he [TS]

01:48:16   was really like the force of that little [TS]

01:48:19   five-year-old kid knocked him over right [TS]

01:48:20   I don't think it's that much of that [TS]

01:48:22   anymore yeah now that i'm gonna really [TS]

01:48:25   really miss that guy [TS]

01:48:26   sorry I cut you off there now it's you [TS]

01:48:33   know what I don't know where I was going [TS]

01:48:34   you can edit this thing put it out on [TS]

01:48:36   this is gonna help a lot of people I [TS]

01:48:37   that's exactly what i want is I think [TS]

01:48:40   you are probably one of the premier [TS]

01:48:41   brazilian steak podcast that's available [TS]

01:48:43   today I I don't know all of them [TS]

01:48:46   the thing is we can scoop up everybody [TS]

01:48:47   that's the thing we're going to be some [TS]

01:48:49   people out of the Brazilians I'm you [TS]

01:48:50   ever had the fried banana and a [TS]

01:48:52   brazilian steakhouse shit dawg [TS]

01:48:55   hell yeah it's and it here's what i [TS]

01:48:59   thought the first time I went I was like [TS]

01:49:01   yeah I'm not eating a fried banana that [TS]

01:49:03   sounds like a legit [TS]

01:49:05   that's the kitchen and that's how they [TS]

01:49:07   get pretty damn good it's really good [TS]

01:49:09   and next thing you know you're asking [TS]

01:49:11   your guy the guy things are asking for [TS]

01:49:13   more of the top sirloin or the bottom [TS]

01:49:16   sirloin you know they've won 13 [TS]

01:49:18   different cuts of steak and then I think [TS]

01:49:20   you're gonna ask for that and you're [TS]

01:49:21   like I know bring us another fried [TS]

01:49:24   banana and they should serve it on the [TS]

01:49:26   sword though it would be more fun [TS]

01:49:27   they should banana sore i think i think [TS]

01:49:29   because though I think the problem is [TS]

01:49:32   you know that you know it's going to [TS]

01:49:34   fall right off the store is going to cut [TS]

01:49:36   right through it [TS]

01:49:37   I agree you know did you get little [TS]

01:49:38   tongs on the table when you go i'll [TS]

01:49:40   always you gotta get the songs because [TS]

01:49:42   we can participate a little bit i don't [TS]

01:49:44   think they have to do that but i like [TS]

01:49:45   the fact that most often they can get [TS]

01:49:47   this look to go huh [TS]

01:49:48   and you can grab your tongs and you [TS]

01:49:49   helped with the rest of the way right [TS]

01:49:51   they then cut about eighty percent of [TS]

01:49:53   the way and yes you take your tongs and [TS]

01:49:55   then they cut the rest of the way [TS]

01:49:57   you take it a little later little slab [TS]

01:49:59   of meat now I'm not want brazilian steak [TS]

01:50:02   so i think america america needs I think [TS]

01:50:07   that's what America needs America needs [TS]

01:50:09   a brazilian state that's a really good [TS]

01:50:12   way the stronger together you know I [TS]

01:50:14   think it's something we could all use [TS]

01:50:15   are you on detail you're gonna be okay [TS]

01:50:17   I mean I mean after the holiday parties [TS]

01:50:20   over but i mean like do you feel like I [TS]

01:50:22   know it's probably too early to feel [TS]

01:50:24   anything to coherently but anything [TS]

01:50:26   you're you're thinking about going [TS]

01:50:29   forward [TS]

01:50:30   all I keep thinking is I i am upset i [TS]

01:50:36   I've taken this very hard i am [TS]

01:50:37   politically a very fascinated I've said [TS]

01:50:43   this before but we're like when i first [TS]

01:50:45   started thinking you know i should start [TS]

01:50:47   writing a blog i had this name daring [TS]

01:50:50   fireball in my pocket and I thought [TS]

01:50:53   should I write about like Apple and text [TS]

01:50:55   off or should I read about politics you [TS]

01:50:57   know and it was it was like a 50-50 call [TS]

01:51:00   for me in 2001 really was like wow I i [TS]

01:51:03   really am that invested in this stuff or [TS]

01:51:06   maybe sports did you ever consider [TS]

01:51:07   sports sports sports is always up there [TS]

01:51:11   now I'm not being time only very light [TS]

01:51:14   I'm it it did but not as much because I [TS]

01:51:17   didn't feel like it was is underserved I [TS]

01:51:19   feel like okay and I felt like politics [TS]

01:51:22   and and tech were underserved by smart [TS]

01:51:25   commentary [TS]

01:51:26   well we both we both got we both got [TS]

01:51:28   lucky and if obviously you're way more [TS]

01:51:29   successful and I was at this but we were [TS]

01:51:31   both we had good timing at figuring out [TS]

01:51:33   a pie slice of the pie slice like who [TS]

01:51:36   would ever think somebody would want [TS]

01:51:37   something about Mac productivity like [TS]

01:51:41   you know most people don't want a mac [TS]

01:51:42   site most people don't want a [TS]

01:51:43   Productivity side who would want a mac [TS]

01:51:45   productivity site that's bananas and in [TS]

01:51:47   your case that there were not that many [TS]

01:51:49   people out there doing what you're doing [TS]

01:51:50   but you know the support it's a little [TS]

01:51:52   more it totally true that but i will [TS]

01:51:57   tell you and and and [TS]

01:52:00   like previous elections you know again [TS]

01:52:03   i'm glad that barack obama won the last [TS]

01:52:06   2i was despondent and 2000-2004 when [TS]

01:52:11   when george w bush one but this one to [TS]

01:52:15   me I there's like I I don't just feel [TS]

01:52:19   like my side loss i feel a guilt I feel [TS]

01:52:23   like and I I you know meet you and I are [TS]

01:52:30   almost identically aged white men [TS]

01:52:34   straight white men with wives and and a [TS]

01:52:38   kid you know and our kids are both what [TS]

01:52:41   roughly ten years old my kids a little [TS]

01:52:43   older years and a little younger [TS]

01:52:45   we're almost the same guy we really are [TS]

01:52:47   and and we make our living on the [TS]

01:52:50   internet you know and what we've got a [TS]

01:52:54   good right [TS]

01:52:55   I I mean there's no denying it you and I [TS]

01:52:58   have it really good and I really do feel [TS]

01:53:03   that at at a basic level like I almost [TS]

01:53:08   it's not even it's not even my right to [TS]

01:53:11   feel bad about this one because in my [TS]

01:53:15   people who blew it and that that I did [TS]

01:53:19   true but there's another part of this [TS]

01:53:21   that's part of what eats at me is that I [TS]

01:53:23   have seen and agree with you like we [TS]

01:53:26   need two white guys talking about [TS]

01:53:27   anything except like I'm a white guy [TS]

01:53:28   who's really pull right a lot of stuff [TS]

01:53:30   to change regardless of like you know [TS]

01:53:32   whatever applesauce my dick is in like I [TS]

01:53:35   there's some stuff that means a lot to [TS]

01:53:36   me and as I have had small and sometimes [TS]

01:53:39   private little bits of evolution and how [TS]

01:53:41   I think about the world [TS]

01:53:42   I got a little myopic and thinking that [TS]

01:53:44   other people saw the same thing and that [TS]

01:53:46   they could be thrilled and buoyed to see [TS]

01:53:51   people who never had a chance to be [TS]

01:53:53   normal American citizens before get to [TS]

01:53:55   do things in the last five years nobody [TS]

01:53:57   could have expected [TS]

01:53:58   I mean who saw the gay marriage then [TS]

01:54:01   coming along the way it did well right [TS]

01:54:02   people did and then it happened and [TS]

01:54:04   you're like how can you look at that and [TS]

01:54:05   see anything but joy the different [TS]

01:54:07   people just got to be the person they [TS]

01:54:09   want to be America is where you get to [TS]

01:54:10   be the person that you want to be [TS]

01:54:12   and that's why I got the hard part but [TS]

01:54:14   it's even even worse even or especially [TS]

01:54:16   as a white guy because no i don't have [TS]

01:54:18   the I don't have the same i'm certainly [TS]

01:54:19   i'm extremely privileged in so many ways [TS]

01:54:21   i get to go where I want to go and all [TS]

01:54:23   that kind of stuff but might my little [TS]

01:54:25   miniature journey into understanding [TS]

01:54:28   these little parts of America better and [TS]

01:54:30   getting to see those people have these [TS]

01:54:31   exalted moments of victory after years [TS]

01:54:34   of being told that they aren't actual [TS]

01:54:35   human being to see so much of that [TS]

01:54:37   progress in the last five years and now [TS]

01:54:40   see that in jeopardy hurts my heart in a [TS]

01:54:42   way that's difficult for me to [TS]

01:54:43   communicate [TS]

01:54:44   I I feel exactly the same way I i ah I [TS]

01:54:52   can't say better had this is why I'm [TS]

01:54:54   glad you're on the show with me today [TS]

01:54:55   and I really hope that whatever side of [TS]

01:54:58   the election people who are listening to [TS]

01:55:00   this are on that they they they can hear [TS]

01:55:03   us and sympathize I I mean that I and in [TS]

01:55:10   a way you know that like I for example i [TS]

01:55:13   think my wife if if she were with it [TS]

01:55:16   I don't think she listens know josho [TS]

01:55:18   yeah so I think she'd be furious if she [TS]

01:55:22   heard me saying that I'm you know I [TS]

01:55:24   whichever side of the election because [TS]

01:55:26   she thinks people who voted the other [TS]

01:55:28   way or shitbags and she's not really [TS]

01:55:30   she's not wrong [TS]

01:55:31   oh no sure she's not wrong he's not [TS]

01:55:33   wrong i got his time something I got [TS]

01:55:35   schooled hard-on right by my friends [TS]

01:55:37   show John siracusa and we were talking [TS]

01:55:39   about things having to do with the way [TS]

01:55:41   that women get treated by everybody and [TS]

01:55:44   I found myself saying this thing that I [TS]

01:55:45   don't say anymore [TS]

01:55:46   this is a like less than a year ago but [TS]

01:55:48   i found myself saying don't these people [TS]

01:55:49   who are these good gamergate guys don't [TS]

01:55:51   they realize that they're talking to [TS]

01:55:53   somebody sister or they're talking to [TS]

01:55:55   somebody's daughter and John I think [TS]

01:55:58   very intelligently said hey you know is [TS]

01:56:00   that really what the hell you want to [TS]

01:56:02   die on you sure you want to put their [TS]

01:56:04   importance of their humanity and writes [TS]

01:56:06   in terms of how they relate to you and I [TS]

01:56:09   thought about it for months and months [TS]

01:56:10   and months and then I saw it happening a [TS]

01:56:11   lot after the pussy grabbing and I [TS]

01:56:13   thought about it a lot and now I think [TS]

01:56:15   you have to want these things for people [TS]

01:56:17   because they're people not because [TS]

01:56:19   they're people that you've decided are [TS]

01:56:20   particularly empathetic based on your [TS]

01:56:22   own feelings and needs and that's where [TS]

01:56:23   I think I do feel comfortable as I like [TS]

01:56:26   saying that this is a shitshow because i [TS]

01:56:28   have i I've gotten to see those [TS]

01:56:30   victories I see it in my kids class i [TS]

01:56:32   see it and the girl my kids class in a [TS]

01:56:34   course I job [TS]

01:56:36   I mean I you see it it is real this is [TS]

01:56:39   not an abstract thing about a wall [TS]

01:56:42   this is about actual human beings who [TS]

01:56:44   worked extremely hard to make what they [TS]

01:56:47   can hear and to see that potentially [TS]

01:56:50   taken away in such a massive way if that [TS]

01:56:52   doesn't move you you're not wired right [TS]

01:56:54   i saw a thing we're just yesterday [TS]

01:56:59   somebody posted on Twitter just manage [TS]

01:57:02   the thousands of them you know maybe [TS]

01:57:04   there's a thousand different pictures of [TS]

01:57:06   the same thing but somebody posted [TS]

01:57:07   yesterday a picture of a a white guy [TS]

01:57:11   looked at you know maybe around [TS]

01:57:12   somewhere around 27 years old white guy [TS]

01:57:16   at a trump rally the day before the [TS]

01:57:18   election and he was wearing a shirt that [TS]

01:57:20   said Hillary is a bitch pound sign Trump [TS]

01:57:26   so black letters Hillary is a bitch and [TS]

01:57:30   then the hashtag ever seen red Trump and [TS]

01:57:35   somebody you know just the observation [TS]

01:57:39   was can you even imagine you know at how [TS]

01:57:43   much worse is the misogyny that allows [TS]

01:57:47   somebody to go out in public with the [TS]

01:57:49   shirt like that because what would be [TS]

01:57:51   the equivalent shirt against Obama right [TS]

01:57:54   nobody would go out wearing a shirt with [TS]

01:57:58   the n-word on it right i mean the Orang [TS]

01:58:01   you know I say nobody but and it's you [TS]

01:58:03   know maybe in this country a 300 million [TS]

01:58:05   there's one guy who would do it but this [TS]

01:58:07   this this wasn't like that we have [TS]

01:58:10   forty-six percent of the population [TS]

01:58:11   thinking it's okay [TS]

01:58:13   right exactly there is something very [TS]

01:58:15   different and there's no there's no [TS]

01:58:17   there's no cultural prohibition against [TS]

01:58:19   that that's pushing back to make him go [TS]

01:58:21   maybe this isn't such a good idea and it [TS]

01:58:23   makes me feel personally I even before [TS]

01:58:27   the breeze and again this is like 48 [TS]

01:58:29   hours ago this before the results but [TS]

01:58:31   that that one tweet and the guy wearing [TS]

01:58:33   that shirt that said that it it just [TS]

01:58:36   emphasizes how I feel like this whole [TS]

01:58:39   time [TS]

01:58:39   I feel like I'm i need to step backwards [TS]

01:58:43   and let other people tell me what is [TS]

01:58:52   going on rather than observed myself in [TS]

01:58:56   home you know what I mean like I could [TS]

01:58:58   do you view we have you have to like [TS]

01:59:00   shut the fuck up right at the time when [TS]

01:59:03   somebody is telling you something you [TS]

01:59:05   need to hear and then increasingly I'm [TS]

01:59:07   coming around the idea of how important [TS]

01:59:09   is to speak up when somebody's doing the [TS]

01:59:11   opposite [TS]

01:59:12   exactly like I the only time I feel that [TS]

01:59:14   I didn't need to speak up is to observe [TS]

01:59:16   like for example to say it is to me [TS]

01:59:20   literally I'm not exaggerating [TS]

01:59:24   unacceptable to wear a shirt that says [TS]

01:59:28   hillary's a bitch [TS]

01:59:29   it's completely unacceptable it really [TS]

01:59:33   it to me is as unacceptable as saying [TS]

01:59:37   obama is the n-word it's that it [TS]

01:59:42   equivalent yet we're not there is a [TS]

01:59:47   society so i'm i'm willing to stand up [TS]

01:59:49   and say that but in terms of you know [TS]

01:59:54   how we got this election result I I just [TS]

01:59:58   feel like I [TS]

01:59:58   feel like I [TS]

02:00:00   you know I don't know I don't know [TS]

02:00:03   either huh [TS]

02:00:08   I tell you what the other thing too and [TS]

02:00:10   I think we're in the same boat here with [TS]

02:00:12   like I said like with two kids who at [TS]

02:00:15   this point like when we first had our [TS]

02:00:17   kids I felt like they were so far apart [TS]

02:00:19   made right now i know i know it was like [TS]

02:00:22   that last night Ellie was pointed some [TS]

02:00:24   stuff because she was feeling pretty [TS]

02:00:25   wrap and she found that little bird [TS]

02:00:28   generous giver and use it if it was like [TS]

02:00:33   it was like maybe there's like a little [TS]

02:00:35   baby in a big baby [TS]

02:00:36   yeah it was like well it's like you know [TS]

02:00:38   when but it at this point there it feels [TS]

02:00:42   like they are both quote-unquote about [TS]

02:00:45   10 years old but then that's a loose [TS]

02:00:48   approximation I have to say [TS]

02:00:50   honest to god and and we we don't like [TS]

02:00:53   it we haven't indoctrinated Jonas with [TS]

02:00:57   politics we haven't you know it like you [TS]

02:01:01   know we don't make him talk about it we [TS]

02:01:03   don't make him think about it he just [TS]

02:01:05   absorbs what he picks up i have to say [TS]

02:01:09   he is devastated is absolutely [TS]

02:01:11   devastated and and the kids a you know [TS]

02:01:16   again maybe it's because we're in the [TS]

02:01:19   city and it's an urban environment but [TS]

02:01:20   the kids today are so open minded kids [TS]

02:01:24   today like he and I mean he's got like [TS]

02:01:26   it's it's it's I mean unbelievably [TS]

02:01:29   different you're my daughter does not [TS]

02:01:30   need to be school that it's it's ok for [TS]

02:01:32   gay people to be together [TS]

02:01:34   I mean it's everywhere it's the teachers [TS]

02:01:37   at her school [TS]

02:01:38   it's it's I mean that's where we live [TS]

02:01:41   this is like these are our friends [TS]

02:01:43   I these ionic and you would be like [TS]

02:01:45   saying her you know p shouldn't punch [TS]

02:01:47   people in the face just because I [TS]

02:01:47   wearing a blue shirt like yeah of course [TS]

02:01:49   not like why did you need to tell me [TS]

02:01:51   that well I just say no it's okay if gay [TS]

02:01:52   people are I I've said this before [TS]

02:01:54   iie and I think you listen to my show so [TS]

02:01:57   you think maybe you've heard it but I i [TS]

02:01:58   think is the most amazing [TS]

02:01:59   Jonas school has a club and it's called [TS]

02:02:03   glow GL 0 W and then and it stands for [TS]

02:02:06   gay lesbian or whatever and to me it is [TS]

02:02:11   the greatest it's so much better [TS]

02:02:13   an LGBT and then you know they keep you [TS]

02:02:17   know there's q and q IA yeah [TS]

02:02:20   qi gay lesbian or whatever is to me [TS]

02:02:25   that's the actual name [TS]

02:02:27   no it's literally the name it's [TS]

02:02:29   officially named I'm not making it up [TS]

02:02:31   I just don't actually wear the efficient [TS]

02:02:33   happen but nobody but like he doesn't [TS]

02:02:36   think it's funny air or clever and all [TS]

02:02:39   that's literally but it it actually is [TS]

02:02:42   what everybody of his generation seems [TS]

02:02:46   to think is like wow we have but you [TS]

02:02:48   know whatever you're into your into what [TS]

02:02:50   cool you know it's alright what why [TS]

02:02:52   would that matter to me and it's like me [TS]

02:02:54   worrying about you having a train car [TS]

02:02:56   but this election result is such a [TS]

02:02:59   repudiation of that or whatever part [TS]

02:03:02   right [TS]

02:03:03   that'sthat's yeah and inexperience [TS]

02:03:05   getting and the kids get it [TS]

02:03:07   the kids do there's no there's no [TS]

02:03:09   denying it there's a mean and it's it's [TS]

02:03:13   not just like the video of the Latino [TS]

02:03:17   girl saying to Hillary Clinton I'm [TS]

02:03:19   worried that my mom parents are going to [TS]

02:03:21   be deported and you know Hillary says [TS]

02:03:23   come here you know I'm gonna do whatever [TS]

02:03:25   I can [TS]

02:03:25   it's not it it's all kids it doesn't [TS]

02:03:29   matter what their background is all kids [TS]

02:03:32   see it and it really i don't know what [TS]

02:03:34   to do [TS]

02:03:34   I'd really done it it's it's the most [TS]

02:03:37   lost I've ever felt as as a parent [TS]

02:03:41   yeah i agree with you i mean I it's so [TS]

02:03:44   early I think it's at a time when you're [TS]

02:03:47   not sure what's going on you're feeling [TS]

02:03:48   antsy you know I think the advice to not [TS]

02:03:51   panic is is a good one I mean it's hard [TS]

02:03:53   not to but i think on some level you [TS]

02:03:57   kind of got to just you gotta just feel [TS]

02:03:59   your way through and now we've gotten [TS]

02:04:01   through a lot of stuff and we'll go [TS]

02:04:03   through a lot of stuff in the future me [TS]

02:04:04   the inspiration to say here except that [TS]

02:04:06   like you just you've got to keep your [TS]

02:04:07   cool keep doing the right thing and [TS]

02:04:09   tried try not to be unkind like right [TS]

02:04:11   now there's there's a lot of people want [TS]

02:04:13   after each other and there's a real vibe [TS]

02:04:15   of telling feels like there's the [TS]

02:04:17   beginnings of a vibe of finger-pointing [TS]

02:04:19   and there's a big vibe and you know [TS]

02:04:22   that's your thing you know [TS]

02:04:23   Hakuna Matata but like I let's I would [TS]

02:04:26   feel like if I had [TS]

02:04:27   one thing to ask let's go easy on that [TS]

02:04:28   for a while and let's go easy on and [TS]

02:04:31   tearing each other apart or chanting [TS]

02:04:32   other people apart and let's maybe just [TS]

02:04:34   have least couple three days where we [TS]

02:04:36   don't tell people that they're feeling [TS]

02:04:37   wronged incorrectly or they're feeling [TS]

02:04:39   bad wrongly that's let's let people have [TS]

02:04:42   a time to grieve for whatever it is [TS]

02:04:44   you're grieving for even if you don't [TS]

02:04:45   think they deserve it [TS]

02:04:48   i I'd that's exactly how I feel and I [TS]

02:04:51   don't want again I don't want to point [TS]

02:04:53   any fingers [TS]

02:04:54   I really don't i mean i just want to say [TS]

02:05:00   keep pushing in the right direction and [TS]

02:05:02   and forget about it it's so hard because [TS]

02:05:06   we're at as as mechanical devices human [TS]

02:05:11   beings are meant to see everything day [TS]

02:05:15   by day hour by hour moment by moment but [TS]

02:05:18   the truth is you know in the long term [TS]

02:05:22   what matters is you know on the years [TS]

02:05:25   you know the years and decades [TS]

02:05:28   perspective and just keep pushing in the [TS]

02:05:31   right direction and it will work out [TS]

02:05:33   even though this is clearly as setback [TS]

02:05:38   and what I really do think that it's [TS]

02:05:42   it's not right at counterproductive to [TS]

02:05:46   to start pointing fingers [TS]

02:05:49   well let's check back in after a while I [TS]

02:05:51   gotta going to pick up my kids to my [TS]
