All of us in America have a duty to vote. Don't go.
Oh, voting may be the cornerstone of our democracy, but the reality of how voting works in America and who gets to do it is not as fair or clear cut as we like to tell ourselves.
I'm Katie Couric and this is Turn Out, a podcast exploring America's voting record with the help of experts, activists and politicians. We're going to talk about the ways voters have been kept out of the system and how to ensure that everyone can participate in our democracy.
Find turnout on the I Heart radio app, Apple podcast, or wherever you listen to your favorite shows from Time to Wake Up Teaching and Charlamagne to The Breakfast Club Voice of the culture to Watch. Like, really be tuned in. It's one of my favorite shows, just because you always keep to keep it real. They might not watch to me, but they're on Twitter, on Facebook. They're you know, they're listening to the breakfast show I saw.
Good morning. Hello. I can hear myself loud, I can't hear myself. There we go. He started on police. All right, we're back in the studio. Ladies and gentlemen. First day back. Good morning, USA. Yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo. Good morning, Angelique.
Good morning, D.J.. Charlamagne, the guy. Peace to the Planet. It's Monday. Toronto went up, so Charlamagne is not here yet, he's late on the first day back and he was the one that wanted to come back so damn bad, I figured he would have been here at least an hour early.
But no, on his first day back, Charlamagne is late, he is on vacation and we am back in studio and I hate it. I'll tell you why I hate it. Not that I don't miss the guys and and gals up here. I just hate this Plexiglas that separates everything. And I know we have to stay safe. I know we have to wear masks, but it's just not the same. I can't finger touch the board. I can't say what's up.
The drama's without this glass in front of me. They gave me like a little cubicle. I can't even fit my laptop here, but I'm not complaining. I'm just saying. And then with all the cases rising.
Hey, hey. Is oh, I'm just trying to get this guy was tall. He wanted to get back so bad in the first day back.
He's late. I'm just setting the tone.
I'm just setting the tone that's trying to bring that old feeling back. Oh my God. This plexiglass thing I can't see. I love it. I can't touch you. This is perfect. I can't I don't like this. Can I take my math class? You can take your math on your Plexiglas world.
I take a deep breath. Happy to be here. My goodness. What's happening, man? Feels good to be back in the studio. Yeah. Is this are we back back in the studio for good. Good. I don't know. The cases in New York are rising like crazy. That's a lie. You said that yesterday where you get that it to the news. Do you listen to the news? Not the only thing I keep hearing is Donald Trump is sick.
He's sick, he has coronavirus. But the mayor of New York said he's talking about closing schools because the case is rising. I don't know what you didn't like. Nine different zip codes. I get that memo. Yeah, they're definitely talking about this case is rising and there's a lot of problems.
They're trying to that's going to start finding people more and more and more and more and more.
You mean finding people, finding, not finding, find. Oh, okay. Okay. For being in the city has been in this. No, no. For not wearing a mask. I'm not wearing a mask. Correct. I got a bunch of math lesson last night. We sat courtside virtually at the NBA finals game three. That was awkward. Some here, some things are just not meant to be virtual. And that's one of them. Yeah.
It's like you come into the room and like when we got in when I got in, it was Anthony Anderson and Tracy Ellis Ross and Big Sean. And it's just like, are we supposed to talk? It was a little weird. Do you sit here? No. Anthony Anderson called all of us. He got of was on his cell phone like, hey, what's up? Just calling to check in. I'm like, I see you at the game.
Like, I just. But make sure you good. Yeah.
Yes, I'm I'm in shock. I saw Corey, Dave Chappelle, the Staples man out. But I was just like, this is an awkward way to watch the game. And it was one point I wasn't even watching the game. I was watching Lovecraft country. I just took the laptop upstairs and was laying in the bed, my wife and just sitting there, really I didn't know he was supposed to be doing in the first ten minutes, my son was watching the game and obviously he was sitting right by me.
I was confused. I was like, what's happening here? All right, well, let's get the show cracking. Front page news. Your president, he has coronavirus would tell you all about it.
It's The Breakfast Club. Good morning. Good morning, everybody.
Is D.J. Envy, Angela? Yes.
I mean, the guy we are, the Breakfast Club, is getting some front page news now in sports, NBA, the Lakers lead the series two one they lost last night to the Heat on fifteen one to four to the three or five.
I'm happy for you all. Happy to jump me to the series because I damn sure picked you out to get swept.
I definitely thought they were going to get swept. NFL you want the NFL scores don't have to.
You know what I'm saying, especially being with, you know, coronavirus cases rising all throughout the country. I think it's irresponsible for the NFL to even be playing football.
Well, I just do a couple. I'll just do a couple of Bengals beat the Jaguars. Thirty to twenty five. The Browns. Browns meet the Cowboys.
First of all, first of all, did not just tell you it is irresponsible to be talking about things like this while coronavirus cases are rising.
Forty nine. Thirty eight. You're right. Angle to any that is going to go do any.
No, you should do it now. You should do New York. You should do to change your format change. What did the Giants do. Giants. Long as the Rams beat them. Seventeen and they own three eagles beat the forty nine five twenty. The Bills beat the Raiders. Thirty twenty three Colts beat the Bears 1911. Vikings beat Texas thirty one twenty three. The Panthers beat the Cardinals thirty one twenty one. Ravens beat the football team. Thirty one seventeen Buccaneers beat the Chargers.
Thirty eight thirty one Saints beat the Lions. Thirty five twenty nine. Now the Rams and the Giants.
I mean the Rams and the Browns ran through the Giants and the Cowboys the way Corona's running to the White House.
Yeah, pretty much. And the Patriots and Chiefs tonight is Monday Night Football. Cam Newton is out.
He tested Y for coronavirus. Exactly.
So irresponsible in the NFL to still be playing football, especially when my team is one in three. OK, my team was doing one. Let's go baby. But since we won and three is so irresponsible for them to be playing football now.
Donald Trump has Korona. Virus, they believe he probably got it at a ceremony at the Rose Garden. So he had a big party at the Rose Garden. Everybody was there. Children, no marcey by hugging LDAP each other. I wasn't a party. Now we do what we get right now. If I go to a club or I go to a party and I got a mask on, I get a fight. The president does it. A couple of hundred people and it's all good.
Well, it wasn't a party.
It was. And he was introducing who his nominees for the Supreme Court pick, Amy Courtney Barrett, wasn't mean. Amy Koney. Barrett Koney. Carney. Carney. Yeah. I've got something I know.
Amy. Well, let me ask you a question. It was a lot of people, right? They had some music there.
I don't know if they I mean, I don't know, but it sounded like a party.
Well, I definitely know your show.
I'm positive. Well, he talks about his health and how he's doing.
So many things have happened. If you look at the therapeutics, which I'm taking right now, some of them and others are coming out soon that are looking like, frankly, the miracles coming down from God. So I just want to tell you that I'm starting to feel good. You don't know, over the next period of a few days, I guess that's the real test. So we'll be seeing what happens over those next couple next couple of days.
Now, he also talks why he went to the hospital, why he didn't stay in the White House. I just didn't want to stay in the White House. I was given that all told to stay in the White House, lock yourself in. Don't ever leave. Don't even go to the Oval Office. Just stay upstairs and enjoy it. Don't see people, don't talk to people and just be done with it. And I can't do that. I can't be locked up in a room upstairs and totally safe and just say, hey, whatever happens, happens.
I can't do that. We have to confront problems as a leader. You have to confront problems. There's never been a great leader that would have done that. So that's where it is. I'm doing well. Let the record show.
I told you on Friday that he was going to take some type of a therapeutic vaccine, all right. And get better. And then he would have millions of people lined up to get that microchip in their ass when they go to get that therapeutic vaccine. Now, I think he's just got some stock, some equity in that, a pharmaceutical company. And that's his cash out plan for when he loses in November. He's all just conspiracy theory, by the way, because I don't even believe that he has coronavirus.
He's got to die in order for me to believe the man, a 74 year old, he weighs two hundred and forty four pounds. Seriously, him and Chris Christie. I'm not wishing bad on nobody, but based on everything that they've told us about coronavirus, they have some very high risk factors, the both of them. Right. And if their obesity. So I'm just saying, if they can you imagine if Donald Trump just if he has it right, I'm putting air quotes, he just beat coronavirus, you know, unbearable.
He would be. Is he the two things will happen. He's going to be unbearable right now. He's going to have a come to Jesus moment. And it's going to be the greatest pivot we've ever seen in American history. You talking about a he'll turn you go from the villain to the absolute good guy who loves everybody and just wants to do right by people.
Yeah, well, we'll give you more information. Also, they said they did a press conference. They talked about him. He didn't have oxygen, he didn't need oxygen. And they came back and said he needed oxygen. And then the president did some while she said he wanted to say hello to his supporters. That's that's insane. He went downstairs in his car with the Secret Service in the car and drove around waving at people. That is crazy.
That's insane. I guarantee you, those two people did not get had to be, you know, just like drunk.
Don't get have to pay for being here, beating the drums I bought up.
Yes, he is. All right. Well, that is front page news. Get it off your chest. Eight hundred five eight five one two five one. If you need to vent heat, it's up right now. Maybe you have work stuck behind some plexiglass.
I don't know, whatever it may be. Eight hundred five eight five one two five one. Get it off your chest is the Breakfast Club.
Good morning. The Breakfast Club. This is the secret syllabus podcast. I remember the good old times when I was a college student and then 20/20 hit. Hi, I'm Hannah Ashton.
And I'm Katie Tracy. We're here to fill in everything they missed in our college curriculum, just like you were confronting the unknown.
And if we're being honest, we need all the advice we can get.
Listen to the secret syllabus on the I Heart radio app, Apple podcast, or wherever you get your podcasts, see after class. Wake up, wake up, wake up your ass, this is your time to get it off your chest. Are you, man or blessed? We want to hear from you on the Breakfast Club this morning.
Investors in California. How ya doing? King good morning out there. Oh, yes, good morning. But I'm really excited, though, because I just accepted an internship with I was drawn to, but I just accepted an internship with Angela Ryner Impact Strategy. So I wanted to drop one include Bonds for Angela. Right. Bandeau Queen. And later this year. What's your name?
King Sylvester. I suggest that you don't give my sister. No, no, no trouble now.
OK, we don't play I don't play about my Angela right now.
That is for the advancement of our people. And I was listening to the Cedric Richmond interview and I was wondering if you could ask him the next time you and he actually introduced into the House legislation to amend the 13th. So not really much attention is getting brought around it hoping that you could bring that up the next time you talk.
Oh, yeah, I never saw that. We actually Cedric is supposed to be checking in with the Breakfast Club every week leading up to the election.
Is he still going to because I know he's going to have to do debates tomorrow or Wednesday and Wednesday. Yeah. Yeah. When the president introduced he introduced it in June and actually I made it infographics to help kind of spread awareness on it. I wanted to share that with you, too. If I could share where I can do that offline, then yeah, I don't know.
We can put you on hold to produce the whole ordeal in the Breakfast Club, but hold on.
This is an area where South Carolina, South Krulak better get it off your chest right now.
I just came around and say, well, I want to place I want to repeat that time, Charles.
Oh, where have you gotten from? South Carolina. We shut this down by brother. Go ahead. Oh, I know my life is the same way. Sometimes I feel like I we go to the same place trying to make a living man. I'm trying to make it out. I'm trying to make sure that my family has always been smart. So every day I hope to God, I pray to God. Let me speak. Somebody is trying to play me in the of my mistakes.
So close your day. Yeah. Yeah. You got to slow down. You got to slow that down. My South Carolina brethren, you're going too fast. Like what?
You going west side and you sound like your life depends on where I'm going to draw.
I'm not disrespectful. I was drawn, drawn, disrespectful to hang up on my South Carolina Avi's Balthasar here.
No, no, no. This is envy's back and it's all him. Wow. That's a long time to be used. Like Envy's back and it's all him. Wow. Goodness, you can't that.
Damn Jesus Christ.

The Breakfast Club. I am Steve Smith, singer, and on my new podcast, Cut to It, we're talking to your favorite athletes to get to know the people inside the jerseys, the New Orleans Saints, Malcolm Jenkins.
How long did it take for you to talk to a therapist?
My body felt like it was in a fight or flight. I can't do this anymore.

That's the only way you're going to start getting a couple of mature young lady, that is baseball. And another brother went to how well he plays basketball. So there's a couple of them doing it, though.
Yeah, but you can't put them on. And most kids want a shot. They want to go right to one school so they can be a household name, but they don't get that. So I feel like yes, you have a little school so they can get some kind of shot because that's the reason why they don't want to go you right. I agree with you.
I or revolt maybe be to a revolt just in some games that I don't know how that works. I don't know how that works with TV contracts, but I do think it's I do agree with you, sir. Thank you, brother. Hello, this is Isaiah. Isaiah, whatever. Get it off your chest.
I just wanted to get off my set off on Patterson is now looking people. Do you have nothing to do with Patterson. No, not for the people.
Not for a good look at these jerseys open. What are you talking about that?

Oh, OK. So why don't you you can you can leave Patterson, you know, you can go out to Patterson, this town right next door, like you could go to Berkovich, which is a town next door. You could go to lobby, you could go to so many different places where you can't go, bro.
All right. I guess to leave Patterson, it's OK to leave Patterson. Hello. Who's this? Jesus Christ.

Big Bird with the long. All right. Go ahead.
What. Oh God. That come from me. Jesus Christ. What's a girl like that? I'm sorry, I think Trev. But look, there's been a decline a bit. I want to say good morning to Tiger this morning. I hope he's having a good morning. Are all these fans, Psagot signable? Describe it. Describe why. Oh, my goodness.
Have to go look at yourself and say, oh, my goodness, like that. I just. You think you saying tigers packing tiger chicken. So I want you to look at it once you say Tiger's penis is great.
We got that, we got that sound bite. Thank you so much. Crap. You ain't got to do no more. Thank you so much.
But one more thing every up and all of you out of here know now that he's a rapper. He likes to be popular, but he's he went viral this weekend because he was carrying a bag. And while she was securing the bag, she threw up on the bag. But we're not going to judge her. She was carrying a bag this weekend instead of her suitcase. I never heard of her. I'm a check her up.
OK, well, take your trash, donate the hashtag, but I don't hate the hashtag. All right. Get it off you. Yes, eight hundred five eight five one two five one, if you need to vent, you can hit us up right now. Now, let's get to the rumors. I mean, we'll go with what Tribe said. I mean, he says Tiger is packing.
And then Charlamagne said this once you said Tiger's penis is great. That's not what I said. That was actually a play on the whole Frosted Flakes. No, Tony, the tiger, you know, they're great, you know.
I mean, I don't know so much about Tiger. When we come back, I said Don't Move is the breakfast of the Breakfast Club. Listen to this, Justin. All the guys got the rumor, a report, got a look at the room over report The Breakfast Club.
Now, before we do this story, can we just tease with Charlamagne just said out loud why he was so excited.
We have it. We don't have a clip. Damn it, man. All right. Well, I thought we had the clip. All right. I need some new jokes. And you don't want to.
Did it? Not me. First of all, that you better get your mask on. You took my mask out of the glass. I need to know. Are you sure? Yes.
Now, Tiger created his only fans account.
Now, they said that his pictures got leaked and somebody was trying to blackmail him. So instead of paying a blackmail or being embarrassed, he actually created his own only fans account.
Now, he released a picture and it's a picture of his penis.
If you want to put your penis on only, you don't have to make up an excuse that somebody is about to blackmail you. Whatever, whatever it is you got to do is your penis.
Well, it is what it is. Well, he's charging twenty dollars a month and some of the people that have signed up for his account is Treb and Charlamagne.
Do we have audio of that audio? Only offense. But I will say this. I saw a list of people making some real money on only fans.
Yeah, only fans that people are making a lot of money for. A lot of content that is not naked. Is them dancing, them twerking. I think I'm going to start one for show on my feet because people have been really interested in my feet and I think I'm the only fan.
I did see a picture you laid up somewhere and somebody was commenting on your feet that I saw. Yes.
I mean, you might do it like this little extra change you had explaining to your kids, but that's about it.
My son is already mad at me, all right. He was like that because I posted a picture of my feet and he was like, Dasi.
That's the reason why when I go to school, they make fun of me all day. I said, what you mean? He said, if it's not, can you say finger in a if it's not the best friends think you're gay. No.
Think we're gay. Don't don't wear this. This is no where there is no where. There's no time to finish this girl. Right.
Whoa. Is a Frosted Flakes joke photo. Listen, if you had gay rumors long before I did that, I didn't know when I first met. Don't make me tell the story. Lipstick.
Oh, yeah. No, you're right.
We both had gay rumors around the same time. Yeah. Damn, I forgot about glitter. All right.
Now the out of the rain response to Charlamagne. I wanna tell people who dat who dat is.
Nobody knows who that is. Who is she is. I forgot already.
I don't even know who she is. Let me give you the day Friday. Let me tell you how.
Yandilla Rain is a commentator in California. She's got a book called Making Love Great Again. She oh, she ran for California's top congressional district. But she lost. She lost. Yes. All she does is trouble black people all day long on her Twitter account.
So on Twitter, she put Nicki Minaj. Just had a child. Poor kid. Yes. And Charlamagne gave a donkey of the day.
Yes. Because I don't understand how a child can be brought into this world. Not even a day old. And that's the first thing comes out of your mouth. No congratulations. No nothing. Especially the black maternal death rate is so high. So whenever a sister successfully have the child and she lives in the child lives, I drop one includes bombs for that all day long.
OK, and my wife was in that situation for a third child. That was a bad situation. Right? So it's just like that's the first thing that's come out of your mouth. Nicki Minaj just had a child. Poor kid. Oh, yes. She got donkey today. She deserved it.
Well, she says stop the music. I heard Charlamagne was talking about me on the radio this morning. It's a shame that racist needs to talk down on me to attempt to stay relevant.
I got to explain who she is, but I'm the one attempting to stay relevant. Hey, OK, well, the petty party continues to enter the Anna, d.E.A and AFO.
Ah, Congress. Dana for Congress. No, that's on Twitter. Oh, to Indiana for Congress is her Instagram, d.E.A and AFO, our Congress. And she wants attention so much we shall continue to have a petty party in her mansions. OK, Deanna, Lorraine, God bless you. All right.
So Friday twenty one Savage released a new album and phenomenal and Drake. He has a song featuring Drake. And this is what Drake said on the song.
If you want to go away, because I used the dates as a beggar. All Hey, if you're cool with it, maybe she can still play. Well, I'm excited to have a field day.
So people were talking that they didn't know that Susan Drake actually used to date. Who cares? I don't know. But she had to respond because in 08 she would have been a little too young. So she said it was actually 09. But you know, the way rap is, it rhymed. Oh, wait, wait.
Get it? She said, but she said anybody who really knows me it was around during this time can confirm it's all love, all peace. I just didn't want anybody thinking anything under age or creepy was happy.
People just don't remember dates that are you know, I'm saying you could I can say something like, oh, yeah, yeah. That was five years ago. It was in. You know what I mean, like who remembers dates? Yeah, she said it was completely innocent and it was lifetimes ago, so was twenty one Savage and Metro bombing one of the best rap duos in the league. And it's not even close. Dropping by the twenty one savage Mitrokhin.
Savage motha is hard.
Big step for music. Sasquatch feet. God damn it. All right. And lastly, Wendy Williams.
She congratulates all great Segway. Great Segway. We've got a baby with the magic is in the studio so effortlessly. The big step of Sasquatch feet into Wendy Williams. Way back. We back.
My goodness. Well, I mean, when it just it Wendy Williams congratulated Nicki Minaj, but she threw a little shade. We have. Nicki had the baby.
Yeah. Yeah. Yesterday. So congratulations to Nicki.
She, too, is not a legend, you know, not the way we think of status. And I feel bad for these girls. But, you know, salt and pepper never have to put out news like they paid their dues and they did their thing.
What is she saying? She's saying Nicki Minaj is not a legend like salt and pepper. That's what it seems like she did. She said that they don't have to put out music. They paid their dues.
Salt and pepper is, what, ten, fifteen years?
Yeah, I don't know. Nicki Minaj. You don't have to put that off. Put out music. They do what they got catalog. I think Nicki Minaj is a legend, Drake said in a record.
Why so? Drake said, the only thing you got on me is some time or something like that. French Montana, PopTech Idol. You got to some time on me. Yeah.
So she she's not a legend like salt and pepper just because something have been around longer. But Nicki Minaj is a legend. Absolutely. Her jersey is in the rafters. She's she's Rap Hall of Fame. She's the first female rapper to have a network of one hundred million dollars.
Like tumorous records, this whole generation of female rap now is inspired by her. She's absolutely she's the bar like she bought female rap back to the forefront. Yes. Nicki Minaj, she is a legit. You don't have to like her. No, but she's a legend. She doesn't have to like us. But she is a legend.
Him not. I don't listen. I'm just here to state facts. Damn right.
She's as much as I can. All right. And that is your rumor report. Now, when we come back, we got front page news. We'll tell you about your president, Donald Trump. All right.
So don't for the Breakfast Club, The Breakfast Club, your mornings.
I'll never be the same.
It's Angeliki. And the general insurance is making it easy to get the auto coverage you deserve at prices you can afford. Get a personal quote in two minutes and drive off with insurance inten give them a call at 800 general or visit the general dot com. Some restrictions apply.
D.J. Envy Angelina Charlamagne, the guy we are the Breakfast Club is getting some front page news.
The Angeliki is out and usually I would do NFL scores right here, but they are no NFL school. Somebody took my scores. I don't think we should be doing NFL scores when the NFC East is so bad. Both of our teams in the NFC East, I'm a Dallas Cowboy fan and with the New York Giants fan.
Oh, don't worry. I can pull them right up. Oh, I got them. I don't know why you're so excited to scream as if your team is doing any better than mine.
Well, the Browns beat the Cowboys. Forty nine. Thirty eight. You're right.
We shouldn't do any more scores. I just let you know, tonight and Monday Night Football, the Chiefs take on the Patriots.
So hypocritical because you act like the Giants are good. The Giants suck giants only three four. Excuse me. Exactly. At least we won one game.
The Rams beat the Giants 79 are past. The Panthers beat the call the thirty one twenty one Bengals beat the Jaguars. Thirty three twenty five. The Bills beat the Raiders. Thirty twenty three. The Colts beat the Bears. Nineteen eleven and the Eagles beat the 49ers.
Twenty five to 20. Now your president Donald Trump, you know he has coronavirus. He was rushed to the hospital on I believe it was Friday. We have audio of it. Why.
I just didn't want to stay in the White House. I was given that all told to stay in the White House, lock yourself in. Don't ever leave. Don't even go to the Oval Office. Just stay upstairs and enjoy it. Don't see people, don't talk to people and just be done with it. And I can't do that. I can't be locked up in a room upstairs and totally safe and just say, hey, whatever happens, happens.
I can't do that. We have to confront problems as a leader. You have to confront problems. There's never been a great leader that would have done that. So that's where it is. I'm doing well.
Yeah. So people believe he got it from his party at the Rose Garden. He had a party in front of the White House. He had a birthday party. He had a bunch of music. And they believe at least ten people contract. They coronaviruses wasn't the only party he was.
It was he was announcing his nomination for the Supreme Court. It was a lot of people and it was music. Right. You was the judge. I was.
That you had to back out on that. Definitely not going to back down that.
I believe that now during this, Sarah. And at the Rose Garden, it was so many people here, not too many people had masks on. There was no social distancing.
People won't Damion sitting on top of each other and they believe that's where it possibly came from. Now, they had a press conference, as doctors did, which was stupid because they really didn't answer any questions.
One of the questions were him and talking about oxygen, if he really use oxygen, if he didn't use oxygen and they break it down a little bit of what really happened, I recommended we bring the president up to Walter Reed as a precautionary measure to provide state of the art monitoring and any care that he may need just 72 hours into the diagnosis. Now, the first week of covid and in particular day seven to 10 of the most critical and determining the likely course of this illness.
At this time, the team and I are extremely happy with the progress the president has made. Thursday, he had a mild cough and some nasal congestion and fatigue, all of which are now resolving and improving.
You know, God forbid I don't believe Donald Trump has called me, but God forbid he's got to die for me to believe that he's really got it because Donald Trump that survives covid would do one of two things. He's going to he's either going to be unbearable. And if you thought he believes Karen was 99 percent Homs before, what do you think is going to happen if he survives that 74 years old and two hundred and forty four pounds? The other thing that might happen, you might have a real come to Jesus moment.
This might be the greatest pivot, one of the greatest heel turns to baby face terms we've ever seen in our life. I doubt it. OK, not to mention Chris Christie has called. Chris Christie is three hundred and seventy three pounds first thing in the morning and he got asthma. Hey, it's all I'm simply saying is with all of those high risk factors, they shouldn't just skate by.
Right. And that's all I'm saying.
Well, he did say he learned a lot about covid.
Can we hit it? We're getting great reports from the doctors. This is an incredible hospital, Walter Reed. I also think we're going to pay a little surprise to some of the great patriots that we have out on the street. So it's been a very interesting journey. I learned a lot about covid. I learned it by really going to school. This is the real school. This isn't let's read the book school and I get it and I understand it.
And it's a very interesting thing and I'm going to be letting you know about it.
What did you learn that is real? You finally learn that there really is a coronavirus. It's a real thing. Two hundred thousand people are really dead, millions infected all around the world. Yes. Yes, President. Mr. President, it's real. That's what he learned. That's obviously I'm telling you. That's all he learned. That is a real thing.
Well, he did go downstairs in his truck and they had a motorcade around the hospital. His agents were in the car as well. Disgusting. I don't know why he would do Secret Service. You mean the Secret Service? He was in the vehicle with them. I don't know why he would do that. Because they're at risk right now, right?
Yeah, I'm sure they call it. You got a quarantine. I mean, and I know they got no hazard pay. It's literally what we're doing to our board of drama right now. Like, you have to be here with us drunk to drive the car.
All right. Well, that is your front page news. Now, Joe Biden, it seems like he did an honorable thing. People are saying he actually pulled all the advertisement talking and being negative against Donald Trump.
That's not honorable. That's actually stupid, because at the end of the day, you still have to win the game. Right? It's still a series going on. All right.
You're still playing full as he just pulled the ads attacking Donald Trump. Wow. Why?
Now is the time. And I'm not and it's not even about an attack. It's about just simply telling the truth. This is the person who downplayed Coronavirus over and over. He's the leader of the United States of America. He lead by example. So many people saw him and followed suit. And that's the reason coronavirus probably just keeps spiking spike and spike and Spike and Spike. And now he has some people feel like it was the right thing to do.
You don't kick a man while he's down. No. You let him get back in the game and then you continue on. So let's open up the phone lines. Eight hundred five eight five one two five one. If you would your body, would you pull your ads attacking Donald Trump, not Paul. Oh, yes. Not an attack agisted attacking Donald Trump. I wouldn't yeah. It's not an attack of the truth that I would I would play pay to have more ads me right now.
You know what you do? You take all those times. They take that whole timeline of him downplaying coronavirus nowhere, man. Absolutely. You know, it's not that serious. It's just going to go away, yada, yada, yada. And then boom. Now he got it. Yeah. And he's sick. That's not attacking, not telling the truth. I would attack. I'm a Virgo. I would keep attacking. I would attack. I would attack.
Even when when he's in the hospital, he has oxygen. I would get I would continue attacked because you know why he would do it to me.
You know what you know? And your parents or your grandparents used to, you know, tell you things when you was young, you know, and he really used to dig in when you didn't listen to what he told you was going to happen, happened to your dumb ass. And he needs that right now. I told you. I said he needs that. I told your dumb ass you can still pray for a person and still wish the best.
Mom didn't still let them know you're your dumb ass. Got yourself in this situation, right? What was wrong with that Romney man? You still got an election to win in November. Eight hundred five eight five one two five one. If you would, Joe Biden, would you pull the ads attacking Donald Trump? That is the question. Let's have this conversation. Call us up. Right now is the Breakfast Club. Good morning.
The Breakfast Club. They got the phone call 800 five eight five one five one to join into the discussion with the Breakfast Club. Talk about it. Morning, everybody.
Is T.J. Envy Angela Charlamagne, the guy we are The Breakfast Club. Now, if you're just joining us, we're talking about Joe Biden and how he pulled his negative ads are ads attacking Donald Trump because Donald Trump has coronavirus and is in the hospital.
And we're asking eight hundred five eight five one one five one. What would you do now? Me? I would I will continue with more ads like Donald Trump is not a nice person. If it was me that I coronavirus, he would attack me just like that. So why not attack him and say, no, I'm trying to get in the White House. I ain't playing games with this man. If he's if he's on oxygen, I'm still running ads like, no, I know.
I know. We seen what Donald Trump has done before.
Yeah. I don't think pulling the ads is the right thing to do at all. That's why people think Dems are soft, that that they go load stuff, we go high. That doesn't work when you're trying to win, OK? It's still a game to be played. Imagine you, the Lakers, and God forbid something tragic happens to one of the Heat players, family members. And, you know, this guy is emotionally down, mentally down, spiritually down, but he's still in that bubble playing.
Should the Lakers show Mercy? No, man when he's on the court? No, no. Because they still trying to win. And I don't think Joe Biden's ads are negative if they are simply pointing out the fact that he's Donald Trump is a victim of his own incompetence, his own incompetence cost two hundred thousand people to be dead in America. His own incompetence caused millions of people to be infected with coronavirus, including him. Now his life is potentially at risk because of his own incompetence.
Nothing wrong with pointing that out.
Now, our board of drumrolls doesn't necessarily believe that drama. Take your mask off. Now, keep in mind, this is one of the leaders for Latinos. For Trump, that's not true at all.
Latinos trump no one in the back of the camera shows make America go. You go jump spreading these lies. What do you think? I mean, I just think to me is you kicking a man when he's down so you can use the basketball analogy. The Lakers should show mercy, but they don't got to talk trash on the way to the rim. At the same time, we know this dude is hurting. Who says they're talking trash just because that's what this is?
No, they're just pointing out the fact that his own incompetence, his his downplaying coronavirus led to all of these people being killed, dying and all these people being infected, including him.
Nothing wrong about Donald Trump, somebody who's made fun of vets, somebody who's made fun of people with Down syndrome. He's talked to women about about a pussy cat like, yes, I'm going to you go. You want to be just got worse. We're condemning him for being disgusting. And now we're also going to be just as a way to raise an eyebrow. But you got to win an honorably man honorably. You got to have some. I listen.
Listen, if you can't talk about Trump having Korona, then they shouldn't be able to run ads about anybody with Carone.
You could talk about them. Have to be you don't got to twist the knife. What's the difference between when that's me running the ad saying Trump's incompetence caused 200000 people to die, trying to drive people to get infected, the economy to get shut down and running. That scene now is caused him to have I just think at a time right now where his life is, looks like it could be potentially at risk right now. You don't need to be doing that.
Give it a couple of days and hopefully no, you know, not Donald Trump.
Let's go to the phone lines. Hello. Who's this is big key. Big take now. Big tea, if you would, Joe Biden, would you pull those ads or or would you let them rock in? Hell, no, don't go back. Wow. Because he learned from Hillary Clinton. I'm struck Donald. He's going to win.
Yeah, that's very true. OK, he's got a great point. Twenty nine days away from the election, Joe Biden is up by 14 percent in the polls. Last year, Hillary Clinton was about fourteen, twelve days before the election. And we were all there where she lives. And, boy, that room was so sad. Yes, it was.
Hello, who's this? Good morning, Sarah. They were talking. If you were Joe Biden, would you pull your negative ads going against Donald Trump while he has coronavirus? No, no, not at all.
No. One, I'm not even close. He has the virus. No. Two, like I said, we still in the game. So that's one thing.
I would create new ads saying, hey, that's what I said. This is what he said back in April. So, yeah, don't forget. Yeah.
Run the timeline. Thank you, mom. Which eight hundred five eight five one two five one. Now, Joe Biden pulled all his ads attacking Donald Trump while Donald Trump is in the hospital with coronavirus.
And we're asking, would you do the same?
Eight hundred five eight five one two five one.
Call us right now is the Breakfast Club. Good morning. I know I'm looking over your. Oh, me and jumping into the Breakfast Club top, come on.
Eight hundred five eight five one five one morning everybody is D.J. Envy, Angela Yee Charlamagne to God and Latinos. For Trump, that's not true.
So you don't need to put that out there to make America GooYa again. That Garvin's what he does is that is not true.
So we're asking if you would Joe Biden, would you pull the negative ads going at Trump know it has pulled those ads while Trump is in the hospital with coronavirus. Would you do the same? I wouldn't I wouldn't put it. I would pay more for ads to add because he would do the same for me.
The ads you could run now reinforce everything that you've been saying. This guy's incompetence, his negligence when it comes to how he handled coronavirus, not only who's responsible for twenty thousand people being killed and millions being sick, he's one of them. Yes. Now he's put the life of him.
Chris Christie, Kellyanne Conway, all of them already look like they're about to die. And he put he put their lives at even more risk.
So, I mean, I will go even further. I would say something like vote for Trump, catch coronavirus. Then I would go that far.
Would it vote for Trump? No, you don't want that. You say you thinking about it.
I mean, I'm not saying be negative. I'm just saying state the fact the news is already doing that for you, though. No, I'm not in this all the talking about right now, but they still not doing a good job of pointing to Donald Trump's incompetence and saying that's the reason he got it. I don't think so. Hello.
Who's this ready to hold on? You just call right now, then. I'm all right about that.
How are you doing, Freddie? So we're asking if you enjoyed it. First off, I want to say, Angela, you hurry up and get back of your Yotsuba.
Yesterday was a rough road. Is full speed isn't really you. Anybody ask you about our sexuality being on my back from birth to my comment. You know, Joe Biden this week, the whole Democratic Party is softening. We there's no more politics as usual. This guy came in. He changed all our that like know what going to play by the same old rules that ain't working, ain't going to work. They need to try a new play for Joe light.
Switch it up. There's no dog. You don't want to talk about how you dog you because many, many millions of lives I'm sorry to hear. Otherwise I'd be lost out here. And you need to be accountable for that. It was negligent on his part, so I think they need it pretty much. Democrats don't realize politics as usual. Yeah. They don't realize the language of politics is dead, like they're still trying to be politicians in a world that don't talk politics.
This is the moment is in in feel bad. What's up, bro?
We're talking Joe Biden. Now, if you were Joe Biden, would you pull the ads?
The negative ad ball is in the hospital. My balls won't look bad. Joe Biden look bad is killed by the man.
So are you voting for Trump? You vote for Trump? Yeah.
It's the man. Joe Biden, race two. Man, Donald Trump is not a racist.
Where are you from, sir? I love to know where you from. Where you from will find what makes me so we know you must have got that.
You must have got that stimulus check and you waiting for the second. He definitely got the stimulus check for the second man.
I work for a living man. Come on down.
Tell me I'm not here to argue with you. I really. What's your reasoning for voting for Donald Trump?
I just want to know maybe you can school me on something when Joe Biden is a football, right? That's why I vote for them. Probably racist. Most of them have done racist and have done racist things. I need to know, what did you just say? What are you voting for him for? I want to know what is the interest of yours that you're voting for him for? How does he make your life?
Let me ask you a question. They all the things that he's doing for the black folk, is that true, that he passed he passed laws for the black college? Is he trying to do is he's trying to do all schools for everybody? No, I don't do that, man. Hey, what are you talking about?
Way he's not doing any of that when you got there from your sources. So he's not trying. So to have school for everybody know. Right. Everybody goes, oh, what is called free education. No, not free education, free tuition. You know, not free tuition is not free. I'm not saying free free money is not free. What I'm saying you can go to any.
Why am I sitting here talking to somebody from Florida know when you have a good day. Am I doing this? I don't know. Why am I doing this?
I don't know what you're talking about. When somebody whatever you say Trump is doing when it comes to school, you ain't eligible for it. I know that for a fact. Right. I know that I can be blurry. You might need it, but you ain't eligible for. Hello this.
Hi. Hey, good morning, we're asking if you would Joe Biden, would you pull those ads talking negative about Trump? Absolutely not. That's right. That's right. As a leader. OK. All right. Well, thank you. Thank you. All right. Let me find out. Drama and the guy from Miami, the same person I changed my I changed my opinion.
Now that I am now on the same side, I run him up to run those ads up now. No, no. You are you Latinos for Trump, man. Get the hell out of here. You are crazy, but you just keep screaming to make America. You better stop that right across Europe.
You said, what's the moral of the story? I don't think there is more to the story per say, but I think that when you're in a game, you got to play to win to the end. And it doesn't matter who gets hurt, it doesn't matter you know, who can't compete. You still got to go out there and play. So, no, they shouldn't be pulling away to play and use this to your advantage because it reinforces everything that you've been saying about Donald Trump.
His incompetence has him in Walter Reed Hospital right now.
All right. All right. Well, when we come back, we got your report. We got to talk Saturday Night Live. Chris Rock making the stallion. Great show.
We'll talk about it. Don't Move is The Breakfast Club. Good morning. Morning, everybody.
Is T.J. Envy, Angela Yee, Charlemagne, the guy we are the Breakfast Club. Let's get to the rumors. Angela is out. Let's talk Chris Rock.
This is the rumor report with Angelina this close. Listen up now.
Chris Rock was hosting Saturday Night Live, and during his monologue, he took a shot at Donald Trump for believing and thought it was, you know, the same in the room.
President Trump's in the hospital from Colvert. And I just want to say my heart goes out to calls it. I don't think that was a shot, wasn't a shot, just a joke. I just think he said he was praying for the virus. That's all was wrong. Like, listen, we don't know what covid is going through in Donald Trump's body. So. So you pray for coving that?
Donald Trump is an I am the type I got I got my period. I told my friend, stand back and stand by. You know what I'm saying? I don't want to send any I don't want I don't I don't like wasting time with my prayers.
You know what I'm saying? I just I'm not I just got positive energy and love and light. I just send out into the world. That's all right.
Now, making the stallion she performed on Saturday Night Live and she had a powerful introduction.
Let's hear perspective from neglected person in America is the black. Who taught you to hate the texture of your hair, the color of your skin, the shape of your nose?
Top of your head to the soles of your feet, Daniel Kahneman is no different than the sellout Negroes that sold our people into slavery by dropping bombs for making the story about the Masons and Cammalleri pieces.
I have people who texted me this weekend saying that, you know, they felt like that was mixed messaging. And I disagree because I feel like you have to put the medicine in the candy nowadays, you know what I mean? And I didn't even see Saturday Night Live Saturday night. I don't know what I was going to tell you, but I totally forgot about it. But the next morning, all I literally saw was that clip of Maegan the Stallion with Tamika Mallory speaking and Malcolm X being shot.
So that's amazing. I know she probably introduced that to introduce Malcolm X to a whole new generation and probably put a lot of people on it to me because I hadn't heard it. Absolutely. You know, so I I love when people put the medicine in the cards, so slutting making the stuff. And she also said this as well.
We need to protect our black women. We need all black women. We need to protect our black men if they end up black man at the end of the day, how to behave says about black men. Which shot the Morganstein performance was powerful, I thought it was dope, so I love what she did there.
I think that and, you know, this is something that I did. I came to the conclusion about five, six years ago, like, you have to really be intentional about your support of black women, you know what I mean?
Because whether we realize it or not, we have unintentionally not supported them just by our language. A lot of times, you know what I'm saying? Like a lot of the things that brothers rap about, a lot of the things that we get on the radio and talk about, like sometimes we, you know, neglect our sisters and we degrade our sisters. And that may not be our intention. So being that we did that for so long, unintentionally, we have to be intentional about our support of black women.
We got to be observational about scream and protect black women. We have to be intentional about it.
Absolutely. And also, Travis Scott, he was talking about him being a ball boy for the Houston Rockets and beating Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony and more. He even said Kobe signed a ball for him.
And so he was like a too much of a star studded team at that time. Yeah, I remember Melo was on the Nuggets because one day, like, we weren't supposed to, like, talk to, like, star athletes. And so, like, one day like Melo, like, signed it gave me this had been signed. It had been so funny. He probably didn't remember this. Kobe and Kobe signed a ball for me.
Now that's pretty dope. But I mean, if you don't know, you know, I used to work at the U.S. Open. So the fact that I love to see young men out there working hard, having fun and still being successful, I love it or the ball.
But what I don't try to jump on Travis Scott's story. This guy had Carmelo Anthony and Kobe Bryant signing basketballs. Who signed your little fuzzy tennis ball N.V.? Nobody gave me a tennis.
You never met Serena. You actually met Venus, who I was in ballboy.
But I wasn't that back then. Agassi who give another way. Sampras, you never gave me nothing in people. You know, old. You ordered about fifty seven, you know, about. I say all the ads that have been 57. I didn't say I mean, I don't even know, I don't even know these people you're talking about. I know. I know that. I know Andre Agassi. He doesn't name. Right. Andre Agassi.
Yeah. Yeah. That was about that was. That was the 90s.
That wasn't that 80s. 90S.
Yeah. You oh you. Oh so you two. Yeah. But I ain't lying about it.
Minnillo look at your beard. My face mask. That's so that's your mask. Oh hey you man. And that's your room. A report man. Yes.
Who are you. Give me a donkey to. I need the celebrity in chief.
I need the celebrity in chief Donald Trump. They come to the front of the congregation. Like to have a word with him, please.
Again, we just did them last week. Oh, we must have did a good job then. We must have liked it, didn't we? Oh, my God. Oh, my God. All right, we're back. Two seconds. Back to second one is we'll get to that next. Keep it like that to the Breakfast Club.
Good morning. Donald Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States. What do you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag to say, get that son of a bitch off the field right now, he's fired. He's fired. Trump, please step up to the congregation.
Yes, you are. Donald Trump. When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime and rapists. Jackass, I need a higher seat.
By the way, don't here today from Monday, October 5th goes to America celebrity in chief Donald Trump. We are twenty nine days away from Election Day. Hopefully we are 29 days away from the Donald Trump experiment being over America. It comes to a point in time where regardless if you are a Democrat or Republican, independent doesn't matter. We all have to collectively agree that having the executive producer of Celebrity Apprentice as the 43rd president of the United States of America was a total failure.
And I'm not even mad at him as much as I'm disappointed that America voted for him in the first place. And B, all the politicians and leaders in government that are around him that no better allowed him to just hijack the Republican Party. But whatever. I'm a strong believer that everything and I do mean everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is simply humans are stupid, OK?
And if you humans that put Donald Trump in the White House don't feel stupid after this past week, then I don't know what to tell you. All right. The man who told you on January 22nd that he wasn't concerned about a pandemic and he had it all under control, that it was one person from China and we would be fine. The man who February twenty seventh told us in regards to Corona is going to disappear one day. It's like a miracle it would disappear on March 11th.
Trump said that for the vast majority of Americans, the risk is very, very low. On April 3rd, after the CDC said that people should wear cloth of fabric face coverings, try. He said it was a voluntary thing and that he himself would not be wearing one. In fact, he didn't wear a mask until July when he went to ironically visit the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where he is now a patient because he has coronavirus.
Now, I'm only running down this brief timeline to show you that hardhead makes it so fast, no matter how powerful that hardhead is, is.
OK, I don't care how much money you got, what your status is, what position of power you are, and some things you just can't escape. And disease is one of them.
So when you are the president, the leader of the United States of America, most of the time you are leading by example. So when you treat coronavirus like is nothing, what do you think your foolish ass followers are going to do? Literally on September 21st, just a couple of weeks ago, Trump told a crowd in Swanton, Ohio this, what do you say?
The coronavirus, which is very well under control in our country?
Wrong one, Dromm. Never mind to say what he said. The coronavirus affects virtually nobody got that.
It affects virtually nobody. That's right.
Thousand people dead would disagree. And I wonder now if reports are true and Donald has covid, does he disagree because he's now one of those nobodies? Now, you would think that Trump in this moment would be attempting to lead by example. You would think this would be his come to Jesus moment where he now realizes covid is real. It's nothing to play with. And maybe, just maybe, God is waking his dumb ass up.
I'm telling you, is only two ways this can go. Trump turned into a totally changed man because covid almost kills him or he comes out doubling down on the arrogance. He comes out leading with even more ego. That narcissistic personality disorder will be on a hundred. OK, he's seventy four and clinically obese. So he has two high risk factors that could lead to his death if he really has Colvert and he survives. If you think he thought it was ninety nine percent harmless before, Lord have mercy on us all.
Now I would just go with the story and push aside what I believe and say he has coronavirus OK.
I would think he would be taking this a lot more seriously, but nope. Yesterday, Sunday, even though he just checked into the hospital on Friday, Donald Trump did this.
Let's go to NBC for NY for the president, surprising his fans and really the world. Moments ago, he left the hospital just briefly, that surprise cameo appearance by the covert infected president certainly catching everyone off guard. As you can imagine, President Donald Trump emerged from Walter Reed Military Hospital just within the past hour, and he took a ride with his Secret Service detail, waving to the supporters who have been gathered outside the hospital. At first, it wasn't clear whether President Trump was, in fact, discharged and headed home to the White House.
But it turns out that was not the case. The White House confirming that within the past half hour that the president just took a motorcade trip around the hospital grounds to thank his supporters and more likely to show the American people that he's in pretty good shape. After some conflicting reports about his health in the past 24 hours, those poor Secret Service agents had to ride around with that covid infected president.
This is how, you know, Donald Trump is surrounded by yes men. He has a bunch of people around him that are smarter than him, but none of them have the balls to tell the president what's a good idea and what's not a good idea. Your incompetence and negligence in regards to how you handled the coronavirus in the first place has led to 200000 plus people being dead, millions infected.
Now, you and instead of quarantining away from people, you jump in an SUV with your Secret Service agents, possibly putting them at risk just to go out and get a photo op.
Melania Trump, the first lady, probably so relieved and happy to be away from him. OK, well, not leave the White House to visit her husband at the hospital. You know why? I tell you why. A White House official said Saturday, you know why she won't leave the White House? Because she has covid said that verbatim. She's not leaving because she has covered that would expose the agents who would drive her there and the medical staff who would walk her up to him, end quote.
Man, listen, it's this thing called empathy, baby. It's this thing called being sensitive to what others are going through is a simple concept. OK, you sick? How about don't make anyone else around you sick because a photo op is not an essential right. All right. And if you have actually tested positive for covid, you aren't allowed to make essential runs anyway.
You have to stay your ass at home. Do you realize that SUV within is not only bulletproof, but her medically sealed against chemical attack? So the risk of covid-19 transmission was as high as it gets outside of medical procedures. It's like when someone farts on a plain. Folks who fart on flights need to be arrested because that fart just hangs in the air that plane and just settles. But you get gassy when you're on a plane.
Go in the bathroom. I don't fight in your seat and just let that thing settle on people all over the plane next to me. The next time you want to fly and you smell that fart. Just realized there's no way to go, you are trapped, and that's exactly what happened to those Secret Service agents. OK, everybody in that car, Trump might get sick, they might die, all because Donald Trump has to feed his ego. Political theater executive produced by Donald Trump.
And for what? OK, we talk about what needs to be done to stop this, but we have to understand this is bigger than us. OK, sure.
We're voting on November 3rd, definitely not just for the White House, but for those Senate seats that are up for grabs. I want to see Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell to f out of here. All right. South Carolina vote Jamie Harrison. But other than voting this evil that exists in people like Trump, that's not on us.
OK, that's all. Got to do it. All right. Because there's something Neil Gaiman, the author of fantastic author, once said in regards to evil. He said, and I'll read this verbatim. You see, evil always contains the seeds of its own destruction. It is ultimately negative and therefore encompasses his downfall, even at his moments of apparent triumph, no matter how grandiose, how well planned, how apparently foolproof proof of an evil plan, the inherent sinfulness will by definition rebound upon its instigators, no matter how apparently successful it may seem upon the way.
At the end, it will wreck itself. It will founder upon the rocks of iniquity and sink headfirst. It vanished without a trace and to the seas of oblivion. Basically what Neil Gaiman is saying, how popular an evil person is. I don't care how little evil person is. I don't care how much money they got. Followers cloud. I don't give a damn OK. If even if they had a president, eventually evil people self-destruct, they will crash and burn.
So let's all just sit back and watch how the season finale of Twenty Twenty is going to play out, because I have a feeling it will be a learning lesson for us.
So please let Kathy Griffin. Do her thing, please give this giant Jaromil the big he ha. All right, so you never you never pass gas on a plane?
No, only listen, you've been working on me for ten years. You non-uniform my clothes. Be completely like that. I don't fall in my clothes, you know that. Never on a plane before.
You know, you go in the bathroom, that's disrespectful. You've got to look out for other people, have some empathy on a flight while you fight on a flight. We do that and you look at somebody like that who did that.
That's what you do, because the dust settles over the whole plane. It's like a cloud. It just lands on everybody just seeps into everybody's skin all up in everybody's nostrils, all on everybody's clothes, all because you selfish and just can't walk to the bathroom and let off some gas.
You bring in people, right? All right, well, thank you for that donkey today. Now, when we come back, Desmond Meade will be joining us now. Desmond Meade is a voting rights activist. He's an executive director of the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition.
So he's trying to help people who have felonies be able to vote. So we'll talk to him about all that when we come back. So Don't Move is The Breakfast Club. Good morning. The Breakfast Club.
Warning everybody is D.J. Envy, Angela Ye shall I mean the guy we are, the Breakfast Club, we got a special guest on the line, Desmond Mead. Welcome, brother.
Yo, what's up, guy? You are doing this morning black and hardly. I'm glad you called Desmond because you know, Desmond is the president of the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition. And a few weeks ago, a while ago, actually, we had a date from the city girl on and she wants to be able to vote, but she's a felon. And it just so happened, she tweeted last night, as a felon, I feel our vote should still count.
I mean, I do still live here in America and pay taxes as well. Desmonte, help a sister out.
Well, first of all, before you help to explain what you do, there's been a lot of people I don't know, explain what the coalition does and how we got there.
Yeah. So first of all, the Rice Restoration Coalition is the coalition that's made up of people with felony convictions like people like me. And what we focused on are issues that impact people with felony convictions. So any discrimination around voting, around housing, around employment is really just trying to shift the narrative because so many people put their cell next to your name and it's kind of like tried to dehumanize you. Right. But when somebody's son or daughter, mother, father, cousin, nephew, that may have made a mistake.
Right. But we paid our price and we ought to be able to integrate back into our communities and be a part of our society. And that's what we fight for with statewide organization, with over 20 chapters and about 7000 members throughout the state of Florida. And so we just empower and make it so that the voices of people with felony convictions are. So what would you tell just from the city girls? I'm telling you to stop here. Florida writes the up.
I mean, just the other week, Michael Vick did the same thing. He had to stop. Michael Vick is a registered voters in Florida and next door or to his number eight to three. Why? To call out one 877 number one 877 No Bull zero. And I would say you what we've been doing over the past year, that we've been raising money a lot because because of legislation that's out in the court case, some of us have to pay outstanding fines and fees before we're able to register to vote.
And we've raised over 20 million dollars. And I would say we've been up and banned to let people vote. And so we've been put the word out there. There's people that have those restrictions here. There's a lot of people think they have it but don't have that, because at the end of the day, we've got about seven hundred seventy four thousand people who do have to pay fines and fees. But at least five to six hundred thousand returning citizens of Florida to register to vote right now, today.
And twenty twenty is our year. You know, at the end of the day, we've been silent for 150 years. People always look down on people with felony conviction. We take away our boys. And because of a member for we've got our boys back. And I do believe that the street is the one that can save our democracy.
And what happened with Michael Vick? Because you said Michael Vick called you and you had to register, as I'm sure Michael Vick wasn't, for fines.
So what happened to Michael Vick and how did you get him back so he could vote?
Yes. So, you know, in Florida, once you are convicted of a felony offense, no matter what it is like this before before you lost the right to vote for life or because Amendment four was passed, now people with a felony conviction, once they complete their sentence, they have the right to vote. And so with Michael Vick, Michael Vick wanted to make sure that he was straight because he wanted to register to vote. And so he called for the registration coalition.
And I personally linked up with them. We went in for questioning and found out he served his time, you know, only so you can register right now. And that's exactly what he did. Now, what's the difference?
Because, you know, some felons can't vote and they're saying some felons can vote. How do you know the difference? If you can vote or you can't vote depending on your charge or depending on what you were charged with? How does that work?
Well, the first thing you want to do is apply the rights restoration call. We got a team of people over a year now that's been put together and that's all they do at the end of the day. Member for help everybody, with the exception of people who commit this murder or people who were convicted of a felony sexual offense, if you are not convicted of either one of those, you are eligible to register to vote under Amendment four. Right now, the extra restriction there is if you have outstanding fines and fees, you have to satisfy those five be before you able to register to vote.
How does paying those fines and fees help them better adjust to life at home?
You know what it does, to be perfectly honest with you. Fines and fees. Number one, remove that obstacle, so if people want to be able to register to vote, they can no to a lot of these folks because about 75, he's got his license. Right. And so if you don't if you don't have a driver's license, it's even more difficult for you to get a job right and provide for your family. And then at the end of the day, you know, nobody should be forced to choose between put food on the dinner table or vote.
You should be forced to choose between paying rent or mortgage or voting. And so we remove that. But in addition to that, there's the added benefit because we're actually stimulating the economy, because a lot of the court systems are facing budgetary crises right now. You've got all of the course collectively and they have a 60 million dollar shortfall. So we're paying into the victim compensation fund. We're paying into the teen court. But we're what we're doing right now is a win win situation.
Had there been a significant difference in voting outcomes in Florida, not that people with past felony convictions can vote.
You know, I you know, I would say so. You know, we see in Broward County the voting limiting voting is low right now. You can see things about presidents back in the day, the things that impact up the stuff for me. You go back to a model when a prosecutor didn't even want to press charges for over 70 days, prosecutors are right to decide whether or not to charge. You can elect them, then you go to jail for it when you got to.
Please don't put me on the net for eight minutes. What did he have to answer to achieve? Those people serve. They all elected judges who stand in judgment of their elected officials. And so for what we the people who have I have had experienced the brunt of this racism. The people who have experienced the brunt of injustice, criminal system right now have an opportunity to decide the direction that that is the community that that they're coming back to say that this country could go because we got to the zoo, we actually got the power.
But that power don't show up unless we saw that the vote and we can show up at the polls unless we get registered to vote.
We got more with Desmond me when we come back. Don't Move is The Breakfast Club. Good morning. Good morning, everybody.
Is T.J., N.V. Angeles. Charlamagne, the guy we are the Breakfast Club, is still kicking in with Desmond Meade. Now he's a voting rights activist, executive director of the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition. So if you don't think you can vote or you're a felon, he's trying to help people to vote. Right.
You know, Desmond, I love what your organization does. I just I just wonder sometimes I feel like we put too much of the burden to vote on the streets as opposed to putting the burden on Democrats or whoever to do something for the streets. Well, we got to show up first, brother.
You know, I think they got to show for us first. But no, we have to demand that they show up. That's the whole key, because at the end of the day, first of all, no, like I voted for the first time in over 30 years just last month. And when I walked up to my ancestors, Whitney, and I'm thinking about all my people that was murdered, like somebody was buried on my dogs play by fire hoses just so I can have this opportunity.
And, you know, when I walked in there, something dawned on me, my brother, that I was actually walking by in a specified space, bro. I understood that there was some sanctity in me, actually voting rights. And because of that, then I have to demand that I don't care if you got a deal or that's your name. You got to put some respect on my vote. You got to earn it. You don't get it automatically cause I'm black.
You don't get it automatically. Said I feel a certain way. You got to work for it. And the problem is, is that we are not making people work for our vote. I agree.
I'm saying we've been saying it for a long time to them. Like, what if I see that we don't listen? We're only left with only really straightforward issues that impact people with felony convictions and people who have loved ones that's been impacted by the criminal justice system. You talk about that. We can have a conversation. And if you are with us, we're right with you. We don't care about these. And ours and others will see what we see as our people who've been suffering for decades, for decades.
George, Florida. But they just happened this year. That's been happening for decades. But people never listen to it because no one vote we can vote. Right. It's we have no we have no leverage. But just what we've got leverage right now is one point four million. But employed, I don't care who you are, if you want to be a president, you got to care for them. And when you see races that are decided by less than 680000 and every year after that, one hundred thousand votes, does that means anybody want to wait for the guy to come to the governor's race decided by 30000 votes?
We got that a lot of time, though. If you want to get in that governor's mansion from here on out, who you got to come through, you got to come to us. So now we got to set the table and demand that you get a dress. And if we don't find somebody will help. We got a library out there.
I'm going to ask, you know, because you're fighting a good fight and it requires money. How can people donate if they want to donate and help?
People want to donate. All they got to do is they could set fire to the number eight to six to three feet 1863, or they can go online. And here's the stuff at Florida, RRC, dot com, Florida are dot com. But you said I got I got access on the and we've got people from Michael Jordan, LeBron James, the Miami Dolphins and the Miami Heat trapping the Orlando Magic. We buy staff on the ground up and down, up.
And gentlemen, Michael Jordan doubled up the second by just a few more seconds. And we have over 80000 people across the country. That's golf in Dallas. So they know that No. One, you have to be forced to choose between playing with a body. And so bring the boat and we've got the game that's going down in a couple weeks that's going to be raising money. So this is beyond me, Alexis. This is all we got, seven hundred seventy four thousand brothers and sisters like they have financial barriers and we are committed to working with every last one of them, every step of the way.
For the five to six hundred thousand, that's more than enough right now because the rest of it like the rest of it. And so we need, like this one, appreciative of y'all even let me get off because you were able to listen to let's hope they open it up The Wall Street Journal. But it's also going to be let's listen to the Breakfast Club. They're going to be listed. Some are athletes, some rap stars. And we forget to the race and understand that even if you don't understand how important your vote is, you've got to understand it must be valuable because so many people are using so many resources to try to stop you from voting.
Right. And even if you don't understand everything about it, when you say that when you talk about Geocode, when your brother is have an issue and he tell you to step up, let's roll on. Well, you go rogue. And right now it's the moment out here we are brothers to mount up. Let's do this thing together. And if we manage to do this together, man, we can bring about change. Man We elected the first African-American woman in two years.
We became the least coming in. Having not started doing so. We saved so many assorted Desmonte systems, all because we show up to vote.
We need more of that conversation. And what I mean by that is like we do encourage our people to go out and vote. We don't really tell them why. And after we get these people elected, we don't tell them how to continue to keep their foot on these folks necks and we don't tell these success stories enough. So Pookie and Ray Ray, after two years pass a four year pass, they're looking around and they change and they hoodie like, man, why should I go out and vote again?
That's our job as grassroots organizations, man. We got some retarded citizens in Louisiana, this record shop in North Carolina. That's a record shop in California, Minnesota. When we got over thirty four states where we got organizations just like this, that's where we could connect to. And guess what? The celebrities can connect with us. We here we go fight and we'll give voice to what we've seen at all the other big prisons. I've been homeless. I've been hooked on crack cocaine.
I've been there for the rebels. But you ready to kill myself? I mean, they're just great in the state. Like, it's nothing that none of those other boats to do this, to scare me away from this work. And there's so many others like this out in the country. People are willing, like I told my staff the other day, I'm at peace now because I found something other than my family that I'm willing to die for y'all and I'm willing to die to make sure that no one gets the power that they deserve, to have a no to know that they have the power to utilize and seek them out.
You just sit back and watch the fireworks.
I mean, that's what it is. Then we appreciate you for checking in, too. I appreciate you. Brother wants to let my people vote. Desmonte, I see you've got the shirt on. I see you've got to. Is in the back. What is that? That's right, you know, this is a matter of fact, this is all about and battle gear, right? So anybody that is helping to raise awareness that people would tell you to vote so we can get the word out or help people pay the fine.
See, this is what it's all about. And we challenge all these systems that try to hold people with felony convictions down that may no job and let my people vote and we go. We just don't take this man.
And let me get your number again, two dozen, because I want to connect you directly with Jati from the city girls. I mean, we've got to we got to get JT registered to a Florida girl. Yeah, most definitely. Most definitely. All right. Well, let's Desmond Meade is The Breakfast Club.
Good morning. The Breakfast Club. All right, morning, everybody, is T.J. Envy, Angela Shulgin, the guy we are the Breakfast Club. Let's get to the rumors. Let's talk.
Charlamagne, why is the who's going? No.
This is the rumor, reports Angela on the Breakfast Club.
Now, over the weekend, Charlamagne was trending. What? I don't know. Why were you turning over the weekend? What did you do? Who did you piss off? I don't know.
I was confused. You were sending me that in a group chat yesterday. I didn't know what was going on. All right. Whatever. I don't know if they were trying to have a cancel Charlamagne or what was going on, but it all started. I said a couple of things that people were talking about. Do we have audio of any of them on the chitchat last time?
You know, I mean, I couldn't help it. I mean, usually. Yeah. So that's when I started Jaylo. That's right.
Jaylo came up for review and when she left Charlemagne's sniff, Ticha back then was a total different time.
OK, now the total different human. All right. But if the world didn't get that version of me, then they wouldn't have this version of me now. OK, we have more audio of more.
Some more. Yeah. Raped your sister. Oh, my God, man, I don't want to get into that.
Now, see, I'm so sick of that one now. I'm so sick of the logic conversation because, you know, I did not randomly ask logic who raped his sister. He brought it up like two or three times prior to that, to the point where I asked and I thought we already discussed all this and we discussed all this before.
I thought we did, too. I doubt that's what was in that clip.
His family shouldn't even play that. Like, it's like you don't get the full story. Just just I can't believe, Dan, our producers should have the whole context in there.
We don't have the whole context of the conversation.
That's all you got. That's all you are trying to capture me. Jesus Christ. All right. God. Well, they had it.
They do bring that up literally every few months, though. I was little mama. It was little mama. Make a little mama cry. Yeah, that one. Then the logic I see every once in a while the Jaylo I haven't seen in a long time.
That's a man I might have been a child. I was a terrible human.
I guess it was like that was a wild time. The times are so different. My God. Those early 2010s were a wild time. We made so much inappropriate jokes about things. We had no business joking about it.
It was a different era. So if you want to keep talking about the old me, carry on because, you know, people discuss the old you could they can't gain access to the new you. OK, all right. Don't act like you wasn't complicit. I didn't I didn't say anything and be like the roommate. Well, you know, it's been like that for years. No, Charlamagne takes all the heat. Go. Oh, now you got it, Dad.
Fulci Yep. There you go. Top of the box. There you go. I play that in his old contacts. God damn it. I put the box. All right, hold on, don't you don't skate by this one. All right. I'm going to play this goddamn whole context of this. OK, I'm tired of getting this on my Instagram for not answering. What would you say? That that's so disgusting. I know why you listen to the whole country.
All right, listen, your father was a crackhead, right?
Well, he was. He's doing good now. He's sober now, but it's crazy. That's why honestly, me, because I don't I don't smoke weed. I don't drink, which is fine. You can do whatever you do. And I think it's good in moderation. But me, you know, witnessing my mother, getting her ass by man as it is as a child, dealing with the aftermath of my sisters being raped, things like this.
Do you get upset that you put their life out there like you said, your sisters got raped? My father was a great, great question.
I think I think they understand because I've spoken to him. I don't doubt nobody.
I know. I have a lot of brothers and I have a lot of sisters.
It's kind of a combination of of all our stories as a whole.
I talk about it on the Rachel Sisters.
Oh, man. I don't want to get into context. All right. Context, context, context, context, context. All right. Context. Well, OK, let's talk about this.
This is something that is so nice. Charlamagne said, let's do it twice. Let's talk about Tiger's penis.
No, I did not actually told you not to talk about that again.
Now, Charlamagne commented on Tiger's penis this morning like this.
Once you say Tiger's penis is great, first of all, it was a joke. That's right. Travis, one of our listeners who is gay and tribe called in talking about Tiger's penis, not making a Tony to Tiger. I was combining Tony the tiger with Tiger, the rapper. I know. OK, that's not what I heard. Well, Tiger, he started his only fans account and somebody was allegedly blackmailing him of these news. So he decided to put these nudes out himself.
And it's twenty dollars a month if you want to check it out.
She's the person that was blackmailing him. I don't know. I don't believe that story. Who do you believe? I believe Tiger wanted to show his penis off and is working.
My goodness. And getting rave reviews. Oh, how? You know, what's the review? I'm here. People talk. All right. And lastly, L.L. Cool J. He has something to say about Kanye West peeing on his Grammy.
With all due respect, I think Kanye should be using some kind of way about that because he had a Grammys, did everything right, but they didn't get everything wrong either.
Man, why do why do we exist?
Man, I hate this whole everything. Everything we just talked about. I hate. All right. I hate all the conversation. I hate how we went from talking about me trending to Tiger's penis just because you pee on pages where the contact envy. Could you give us some context for your ease? I said out loud talks about Kanye West being on his Grammy. Why? Right on the Grammys. I know he was with these marrow that I saw.
I didn't see. But why? Why was he upset? They asked him about it. And I guess they talk about playing a clip, but I don't do it. I that to play a clip, I think you should at use and felt some kind of way about that because the Grammys, five years Grammys, he said everything. Right, but they didn't get everything wrong either.
OK, I didn't hear that part of the country. Listen, you don't disagree with that Beyonce music. I'm not I can't I don't know that I'm I throw at the glass. It bounces back at me.
That's an interesting perspective I have, though. I don't understand why he would want Kanye to pee on a pair Yeezy still, because Kanye actually has equity in Yeezy, that Grammy don't really mean anything except for validation from a bunch of white folks who don't know Colchis.
I understand why he would say that. But L.L. is a legend. He has earned his right to his opinion. That's right. Oh yes. He can express it. All right.
Well, that's your rumor report. Revolt shouts you guys. We shall see you tomorrow. Everybody else The People's Choice mixes. Up next is The Breakfast Club. Come on, let's go to the Breakfast Club.
Your mornings will never be the same.
Forty eight states ban texting and driving. So if you do it, you're not only putting people at risk, you're breaking the law. Cops write tickets to save lives. Remember, you drive, you text, you pay brought to you by Nizza.
Morning, everybody. Is D.J. Envy Angela ye shall I mean the guy we are the Breakfast Club.
Good morning. Now this is our first day back in the studio, hopefully for a long time.
Yeah. This isn't a one day thing. When we came on September 9th, we was here for a day. That's when I introduced the Black Effect podcast network, which is booming right now, by the way.
But yeah. So hopefully, man, this is this is it. Hopefully we can get the studio rhythm going back.
Yeah. Angeles out till next Monday, but we're back. There's a lot of things different. A lot of stores are still not open. Starbucks is not open. The parking garage is open up a little later. There's Plexiglas in between everybody. Everybody's wearing masks and nobody else in the building, really, I don't think any other shows but us.
Yeah, I don't think so. Yeah. We're the guinea pigs. Yeah, we are here. All right. When we come back, we got the positive.
No, so don't move is the Breakfast Club. Good morning. Good morning, everybody. Is D.J. Envy.
Angela Ye shall I mean the guy we are the Breakfast Club. Good morning, gentlemen. You got a positive note for all the people out there. I do, man, and, you know, the positive note is from what we were discussing earlier when it was posted, you know, all those those those old clips of of old Charlamagne, OK, just remember, you're allowed to change who you are.
OK, there will be people from your past who expect to see a version of you that does not exist anymore. Remember that you do not need to live up to the expectations. You have evolved and grown so much.
You do you and be who you are.
Fredricka, this is regardless of how you vote, I urge each of you to vote.
In a democracy, the right to vote is the most powerful, nonviolent tool we have.
All of us in America have a duty to vote.
Don't boo vote voting.
We're supposed to know how this works, right? After all, it's the cornerstone of our democracy at the ballot box.
Everyone has the say, but the reality of how voting works in America and who gets to do it is not as fair or clear cut as we like to tell ourselves.
Long lines and confusion at polling place other members of the Turtle Mountain tribe or turned away from the polls.
And tonight, a backlog of undelivered mail is piling up in post offices. I'm Katie Couric and this is Turn Out, a podcast exploring America's voting record. As long as there's been a right to vote, there have been ways to suppress it.
So we're going to talk about it, talk about the ways voters have been kept out of the system and how to ensure that everyone can participate in our democracy. Find turnout on the I Heart radio app, Apple podcast, or wherever you listen to your favorite shows.
