Hi, this is Hillary Clinton, host of the new podcast, You and Me both, there's a lot to be anxious and worried about right now, and it's made so much worse by the fact that we can't be together. So I find myself on the phone a lot, talking with friends, experts, really anyone who can help make some sense of these challenging times. These conversations have been a lifeline for me.
And now I hope they will be for you to please listen to you and me both on the I Heart radio app, Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. Change is coming, the breakfast club, I call it the hot. Can you help control I can't even deal with you. Oh, so we so. The world's most dangerous morning just in hour is big day in everybody's business, but in a good way, Charlamagne, the the ruler rubbing you the wrong way.
The Breakfast Club for everybody.
Good morning, USA. Yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo.
Good morning. Angela Geeshie is on vacation. Charlamagne the God Peace to the planet is Friday.
What Toronto was happening. We hear we made it, yes, right, it's a Friday, the end of the week. I didn't know how October was going to show out, didn't know how October was going to show up, but it has. Yes. The president, Donald Trump and his wife, Melania Trump, allegedly have caught in.
That's right. He allegedly allegedly have coronavirus coronaviruses. Yes, I see. I'm on the front page. But you're talking about how coronavirus. So I got a few thoughts. And one of those thoughts is the reason I'm saying allegedly, keep in mind, I'm a conspiracy theorist reading on a dirt road in Monks Corner, South Carolina. OK, I don't believe much until I see it for myself first. And that's not true. Donald Trump would have to use know CPAC, Bigfoot.
You believe in Bigfoot, you see aliens and you believe in aliens.
First of all, first of all, I have seen aliens. I've been visited by Ecotrust a number of times. And I know I've been visited by extraterrestrials a number of times I've been abducted. I've woken up with cuts on both legs in the same places I've witnessed flying saucers for myself. Sasquatch is not hard to believe. It's just a primate in the woods, sir. OK, just like you got big primates in the jungle. It's just a primate in the woods.
Jeff So I definitely believe a sasquatch existed at some point. Not so much now, but at some point. Any other questions? No, no, no, no, no.
The question everything you just named is way more believable than Donald Trump. But we'll discuss. All right. Well, Reverend Al Sharpton will be joining us this morning. Reverend, out, a good reverend. He's got a new book out called Rise Up a Country at a Crossroads. That's right. So we'll kick it with Reverend Al Sharpton. And let's get the show crack and front page news. Like Charlemagne said, the president and his wife allegedly has coronavirus.
We'll talk about it when we come back to the movies, The Breakfast Club.
Good morning. That was new music making the stallion featuring your dog is called Don't Stop New Music. I'm morning, everybody.
Is D.J. Envy, Angela Yee, Charlamagne the God We Are.
The Breakfast Club is getting some front page news now in NBA. Congratulations to Doc Rivers. You know, he just never just left Los Angeles Clippers, but now it seems like he's agreeing to be the next head coach for the Philadelphia Seventy Sixers.
That's a great job. I'm happy to see that mediocre white coaches get jobs in the NBA quite easily all the time. Good to see Doc Rivers, who's an above mediocre coach, get a job. So congratulations to him.
Also tonight at nine o'clock, the Lakers take on the Heat. That will be game two of the finals. Of course, the Lakers lead one zero. That's at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
Did I read somewhere that the NBA finals game, one of the lowest NBA finals in NBA history? Is that true now that somebody's making something up to throw some smut on LeBron James name?
No, I don't know.
Your president, Donald Trump, looks like he has coronaviruses. Seems like him and his wife will be quarantining because they got coronavirus from an aide.
I don't know if you remember this, a couple of things, but he talked about coronavirus and how he thought it was, I guess, a hoax.
Now the Democrats are politicizing the coronavirus. You know, that coronavirus. And this is their new house and this is their new home. But now he got it. So what for, gentlemen? I know you you got an idea about this.
What is Charlamagne? Think what? I think I have a few thoughts. First of all, come through October, drop on a cruise bound for October.
OK, I know the season finale of Twenty was going to be good. I knew October was sitting back watching, like, how can I make a splash in twenty twenty. These other months been showing out. Let me see what I can do. So this is a good little move for October, right. Second, I'm not about to be happy that Trump and Melania got Karen and I will never celebrate something happening to a person that I don't want to happen to me.
And my third, the conspiracy theories in me simply doesn't believe it. All right. Donald Trump would have to pass away from covid in order for me to believe he's got it. I just feel like this is his way of changing the headlines from his terrible debate showing gives him 14 days to not campaign. Nice excuse to not be in the press. Keeps the bad headlines down. And you know, this is a good one. Trump and Melania Castro and Trump allegedly Trump allegedly pay attention, takes a coronavirus vaccine on national TV.
He's all of a sudden well gives the illusion to the American public that the vaccine is safe. He's one of the first to try it. Million, like millions of people line up to take the vaccine.
That's what I think. OK, I, I literally just woke up and just first came to my head. All right.
Well, Melania Trump, she says too many as too many Americans have done this year, politics in quarantining at home after testing positive for covid-19. We are feeling good. I have postponed all upcoming engagements. Please be sure you are staying safe and we will get through this together.
And if they really do have it, they earned it because they weren't out there wearing masks. They weren't out there social distancing. You know, they are out there throwing rallies, they shaking hands, they're kissing babies.
They're doing everything that the experts tell us not to do. So if they do have it, they aren't.
But Donald Trump is 74 years old. And Melania. So what do you think he was? I thought he was late seventies. Either way, I don't believe I'm being honest with you. I believe, like I said, Trump would have to pass away from covid in order for me to believe.
I just really feel like this is his way of changing the headlines from that terrible debate showing, ah, it's his way of getting everybody in line up for the vaccine because, you know, now he can allegedly take a coronavirus vaccine on national TV, make a big show about it. All of a sudden he's well, if the American give the illusion to the American public that this vaccine is safe and he's one of the first to try to, it's OK for you to get next to.
You know, millions of Americans are lining up to get that goddamn covid-19 vaccine early. All right.
Well, Donald Trump also was on Hannity and condemned white supremacists. I have to say, I've said it many times. And let me be clear again, I condemn the KKK. I condemn all white supremacists. I condemn the proud boys. I don't know much about the proud boys, almost nothing, but I condemn that. But he should condemn also antifa. Antifa is a horrible group of people.
They kill people and doesn't really matter now, you know, I mean, you got to do it when it counts. Yeah. I'm saying like if you if you ever got caught cheating and you want to confront you and she already knows, but you lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie.
And when you finally find out everybody knows you're cheating, you're like, look, I got a confession.
I got caught and it was me too late. All right.
Well, that is your front page news. Now get it off your chest. Eight hundred five eight five one two five one. If you need to vent, hit us up right now. Maybe had a bad night, horrible night, or maybe you feel blessed. You want to spread some positivity, whatever it may be. Phone lines are wide open. 805 five on 051 is The Breakfast Club.

This case. Tasha from Texas. Hey teacher from Texas TFT.
OK, I don't believe Donald Trump has become a I mean, I do not believe that. I believe that he's trying to a get out of that other debate that he had. I think he's trying to defer everything that we're thinking right now. And those tapes that came out about Melania yesterday, I guess it's the whole big thing that nobody likes. And then even more now. So, oh, me, I have coronaviruses and I was today years old when I found out that Angie Stone thing to think about it.
Come on now.
I might have to take your black card, at least for thirty days. You know, things like this.
I just found this because I watch. Are you serious? That voice sounds familiar today. You told me.
Yes, Columbia. But see, I'm from I'm from South Carolina. You know, I lived in Columbia. That's my Angie Stone is from. So I you know, I follow all the things you stole, but I definitely knew that was interesting. Years ago, digital salons did the intro for The Proud Family.
Yeah, I knew that. Yeah, OK. But I thought maybe years old for said, oh my God, when you learn something new every day.
Yeah, I do.
And I love you. I love you from taxi back. Thank you so much. Hello. Who's this.
Good morning Bobby from Louisville, Kentucky. MAN What's going up? Bobby what's happening? Chesbrough Not too much fellas, but I want to get off my chest that I feel like we need to be more empowered to take our home boys to when we've been drinkin. Man Wednesday night was watching the Lakers game and everybody was drinking, was having a great time building and we left, my whole body was behind me. He took it upon himself to go around.
We ended up crashing into a ditch. I had to pull him out of the car, bro. He got like four broken ribs, a punctured where I could have lost my man that night, all because I don't know if it's ego or prayer, but we don't take it that next level to say no, you did the state I would like you to drop. You know what I'm saying? Yeah. So it's it's wild to me. I agree with you and it's wild to me that people still drink and drive in 2020 with Uber and Lyft and everything else.
Like you should know when you've had too much to drink. Absolutely.
And like you said, it's too much pride. Sometimes you got to be noby. You drunk? No, no. Because everybody goes like no. Good. Now, give me a kiss for saying it was crazy.
I told him that. I said, yo, you know, you can stay here with my. Yeah, my brother says we are all brothers, you know, we friends. But I'm like, you know, you can stay here. You I'm up. And we've done it a thousand times before, but we could have lost them at night, man. All of them silly foolishness. Yeah.
And you'd have felt so bad because, you know, you that man was drunk when he left the house. It's one thing when somebody leaves and they look, yeah, I'm good and they look pretty, I but when you know somebody drunk and you let them go anyway, Lord have mercy. You have been kicking your ass for the rest of the rest of your life.
Absolutely historic. True story man.
I'm glad, I'm glad he's not dead man. But next time you know to take that man's keys, get it off your chest. Eight hundred five eight five one two five one. If you need to vent, you can hit us up. We'll taking your calls is The Breakfast Club.
Good morning. The Breakfast Club. L.A. is where I was born and raised. And for years, it's where I've documented life in the city, not the pop culture headlines, but the stories of people and communities that hardly get recognized the way.
Good morning. I brought L.A. wherever I travel to around the world as a journalist and now I'm back home.
Not look at those cowboys. They're black cowboys. I taught them how to do everything that he knows that Shaq, Kobe, Kobe, Kobe, Kobe made people feel as confident as he was. How do you dress like, you know, like a casual gangster from Alere studios. This is California Love. Listen to California Love. I heart radio app, Apple podcast or wherever you get your podcast.
This is your time to get it off your chest. So the email. I hear from you on the Breakfast Club that you've got something on your mind. Hello, this to get it off your chest. I really want to agree with Charlamagne about Donald Trump.
Oh, you don't think he got commodifies? You think he's using this as a ploy to get the American people to feel bad for you?
Absolutely. They don't feel bad.
Yeah, I think it's all a conspiracy theory. I think that he's using just to take away headlines from all the bad press he got, give them 14 days to not campaign. You know, nice excuse to not be in the press. And I honestly think that he's going to take a coronavirus vaccine on national TV all of a sudden be well and give the illusion to the American people that it's just vaccine that they've rushed out is safe. I agree.
I absolutely agree. OK, well, thank you, ma'am.
Hello, this is Arianna area. Arianna. Hey, yeah. I thought I was that today is my 21st birthday. Happy birthday, Michael Jordan. Yeah, that's right.
OK, just make sure you eat twenty three. You can't tell nowadays. All right. Yes, OK.
You see what you got planned. I was like, oh, oh well I was going to go see a movie. I'm going to go out to eat at the seafood place tonight, OK. Oh that I think picturing follow me on Instagram the area my day because I'm a big fan. I did some of that in my life.

Well, you think Charlotte, you know, I think that you should have some other plans lined up that just happened to me. Earth baby pod on a birth date. Is there anything else you want to do in life other than rap?
Oh, boy, I'm going to be a rapper point blank. So I said nothing else. Just putting all your eggs in one basket, huh? Well, you have a great birthday, man. You just enjoy that birthday.
Don't worry about anything else tonight. Ariana Danijel music for more, just think that I just want you to know this is your Jordan.
Yeah. I want you to think about the first time Jordan won a championship and he went up in the air and he had the ball in his right hand. But then at the last minute, he switched it to his left hand and that's when he made the shot. If he'd kept the ball in his right hand, he might not have made that shot. It wasn't that championships. Just think about that in your life in Europe, OK? You might just want to switch hands midair, that's all.
That's it. OK, well, thank you for your response anyway. And you keep going and you enjoy Long John Silver tonight, OK?
She's a long shot. Silver, you as she says you're going to get she did know she has a long John Silver.
She got a nice, fancy restaurant. Don't attack her like that and say no, damn, it's a Red Lobster. Stop it. Get it off your chest. Not that I like the basket. They can't get it off your chest.
Eight five eight five one two five one.
If you need to vent, you can hit us up at any time. Now we got room is on the way. We'll tell you about Dr. Dre. He did all right in court yesterday. We'll tell you all about it at the Breakfast Club. Good morning.
The Breakfast Club. This is the rural report with Enzler on the Breakfast Club. Listen up. Dr. Dre just won a battle in court.
The judge in their divorce case just rejected his wife's Nicole request for one point five million to pay for various expenses, including security and other costs. And the judge also rejected her request to accelerate her claim that Dré should pay five million for her lawyer fees and costs.
Look at God. Look at God. I mean, there's no way I don't care how rich you are, what your lifestyle is. Was there just no way to justify one point five million dollars a month? And whatever it is, especially when you look at the breakdown and that the one that we saw that had to break down for like the hundred thousand a charity and nine hundred thousand in entertainment. Come on, man. A million dollars right there.
So she's also Nicole, which is Dr. Dre, his wife, of course, he said that she needs money for security because she's been receiving death threats. They said the money also goes for expenses. They said people are commenting under her post and on the post saying if she dies, she dies and for a small fee, she can disappear. So she is very concerned and she wants extra security or the black button is free.
You know what I'm saying? I think I don't take any threat lightly. But that's just social media. Seriously, we have to we have to start, you know, like I say, take every threat seriously. But that is just social media. That's what they do. And so I'm getting death threats for a decade now, right? Literally. Yeah, I guess you're right.
Also, Amazon, if you work for Amazon, you might have to be extra, extra safe. Now, Amazon is dropping some alarming stats.
They're saying that nearly 20000 people, they believe, caught covid-19 working at Amazon. They said March 1st to September 19th, nineteen thousand eight hundred and sixteen employees were either presumed or confirmed to have contracted the coronavirus.
That's out of the roughly one point thirty seven million people that work at Amazon and Whole Foods.
So there's a rumor this is a true story, true story, because I think some I can't tell because this is rumor report.
So it ought to be rumors, right? Is supposed to be rumors.
But this is coming straight from TMZ. And TMZ is saying that Amazon workers have more than nineteen thousand cases of coronavirus.
OK, well, that's why you got to wash your hands and you get jams on packages. Well, that's exactly that's exactly what I thought about when I heard this thing.
I was a well, you definitely got to wash your hands. And lastly, shout the consequence, right. Did you know consequence was dealing with lupus?
I didn't know till he posted it on Instagram the other day. You got diabetes. So consequence if you don't know the consequence.
Of course, he's an artist. Used to be in love and hip hop. He's a writer for Kanye West. He posted a picture of himself, his son and his I don't know if that's his wife or girlfriend at his son's birthday party. He was one hundred and thirteen pounds and people will body shame on him. So he left his message. He said I was body shame. When I posted this picture on the 17th of August, I was one hundred and thirteen pounds in some ass.
Peeps said, I look like an old junkie. He says lupus and diabetes have been kicking my ass for seven months straight. But oddly enough, I was getting better as a two weeks before I was 105 pounds and my sugar was in five hundred from being on steroids. I was being determined to wish my son a happy birthday. So I made it out. However I looked and he talks about it. He said he thought lupus was a predominantly affected by black women, but he said the disease knocked him on his ass and now he's letting men know that they should be aware, too.
He said this is the same disease that killed five dog. And he said somebody else, too, I can't find it.
But he said it's very, very serious. And he says he has to he has to take care of his body. Yeah, consequence.
My man. I remember that picture. I honestly just thought he was newly vegan, you know, but nothing I said nothing but positive energy, love and light the consequence, because that's my man. He's a good brother and I wish him a speedy recovery. I want him to be here, you know, to to watch his son grow and evolve. It's not just busy to get some rest.
He's busy. It causes me all the time. But his new polyposis, something new about a couple of days ago. And he gained a lot more weight. He's looking way more healthy. So I guess he's battling it the right way and he's doing way, way better. So shout the consequence.
I think he got a project dropping to going. Things are different now. Hmm.
I think he's just using that as a hashtag to talk about how this is the second act in his life. But I think I'm pretty sure he got a project. Right.
OK, all right. Well, that is your rumor report. Now, when we come back, we got front page news. We'll tell you about Donald Trump. He has a coronavirus. Also, two more black individuals beaten by the police. We'll tell you all about it is the Breakfast Club. Morning, The Breakfast Club, your mornings.
I'll never be the same. The Travis got me just dropped at McDonald's featuring the juicy quarter pound, the burger with lettuce, pickles, onions, ketchup, mustard and bacon all. With medium fries and a drink for just six bucks, don't forget the barbecue sauce price and participations may vary. Morning, everybody.
Is D.J. Envy, Angela Ye shall I mean the guy we are the Breakfast Club. Front page news now.
Congratulations to Doc Rivers that Doc Rivers agreed to a five year deal with the 76 is after leaving the Clippers just a day ago. So congratulations to him. He got a new job right away.
That's good, because all those mediocre white coaches always get jobs right away and they go from team to team like Mike D'Antoni. So I'm glad Doc Rivers got another gig, Defs now. Right.
And also in the NBA, of course, game two is tonight. The Lakers versus the Heat. Lakers lead that series one zero. Game two is tonight at 9:00 p.m. and gave the green screen Sam was sitting courtside.
Game three, right? That's right. Game three, we are sitting courtside is the virtual seats that will be at Sunday's game courtside, which is going to be part of that was shot in Miami. One, two, three, five to beat Miami.
What you mean how does that work? You know, I can't you know, a whole game on Ozuna. Well, you got you have it up on your own and then you have it up on your TVs.
So, you know, you can watch on both. That's what I would do. OK, but I don't want to sit next to I wonder if they going to put me next to you because I don't want to sit next to you. I'm sure they will. I see what's you can see you on TV.
I can't wait to ask him what's wrong with you. Virtual kiss cam.
Now, Donald Trump and his wife Melania looks like allegedly they have covid-19 coronavirus said you don't believe it.
Why not? I believe it. I don't know if Donald Trump would have to die from complications of covid in order for me to believe he had it. God forbid he passes from Colorado because I don't wish death on anyone. And I'm not I'm not about to be happy to Trump and Melania got Korona. I would never celebrate something happening to a person. And I don't want to happen to me in mind, but I don't I don't believe he has.
Or she said, as too many Americans have done this year, politics and I are quarantining at home after testing positive for covid-19. We are feeling good. I have postponed all upcoming engagements. Please be sure you are staying safe and we will all get through this together.
I just feel like this is his way of changing the headlines from his terrible debate show and give them 14 days and not campaign. Nice excuse to not be in the press. They probably won't do. The next debate keeps the bad headlines down. And, you know, I think that they're going to allegedly take a coronavirus vaccine. One of them value minut vaccine that they rush out. They're going to take one and two vaccines on national TV and all of a sudden get better.
And it'll give the illusion to the American public that the vaccine is safe. He'll look like a hero because he's one of the first to try it. Millions are lining up to take the vaccine and microchips for all of you. All right. It's time for God damn Thanksgiving.
My goodness. Well, this is what he said when he talked about it before. He said coronavirus was a hoax.
Now the Democrats are politicizing the coronavirus. You know that coronavirus. And this is their new Hoke's. Yes, so I guess it's not a hoax if he got it. Now, he also condemned white supremacy on Hannity as well. Listen to this.
I have to say, I've said it many times and let me be clear again. I condemn the KKK. I condemn all white supremacists. I condemn the proud boys. I don't know much about the proud boys, almost nothing, but I condemn that. But he should condemn also antifa. Antifa is a horrible group of people. They kill people. See, now his base can't even be mad at him for condemning white supremacy because he can say he's sick, he's sick, running the fever wasn't feeling well or saying anything.
He didn't really know him. It either didn't know what he was saying. So it's just all a great plot, plan and ploy. I don't believe it. And also we have to talk about Ronald Green, Ronald Green is a black person. He's a black man from Louisiana.
They say morning. They said he died from injuries from a car crash. That was that was the reports.
Well, it seems like new audio shows that he didn't die from a car crash and that cops beat him to death.
Do you mean police lied about something? Really? Police. Oh, that audio. We'll have to play it.
Oh, my God. Look. Oh, all right.
Well, let me read it to you, because I know it's kind of hard to understand that I was an officer. Hollings, why are you doing this? Why we why we traumatizing people? Because people and people need to know that that that police lie and that people I mean, and we need to know that we are clear.
And he said that white people may not never live out of them, choked him and everything else, trying to get him under control. We finally got him in and handcuffs when a third man got there and the son of a bitch was still fighting.
They were still wrestling with him, trying to hold him down. He was blood everywhere. Then all of a sudden, he just went limp.
But they said he died from his, you know, injuries from his car crash.
Now, with this war on cops, you keep talking about, because every day that we come on this radio for years now, all we're telling you is stories about how cops are abusing their power against civilians. And cops are doing things like how they did the Ronald Green. I saw the other young lady that they had handcuffed upside down in the backseat of the car yesterday. And she started, you know, screaming about not wanting to be black and calling the officer all kinds of what was the name, Ashanti?
Kelly, the young lady. I was hog tied me. Yes. Yes.
So where this one on cops you keep talking about? Because I don't see I see a war on civilians from cops when I don't see the war on cops happening. Yeah, it's very few and far between. When we come in here and report a story about a police officer, you know, being just randomly attacked by a civilian. Last one was the two of in L.A.. Mm hmm. Yes. So it's just like I don't know. I don't know this one cop shot, but I definitely see the cops abusing their power against black people in this country every goddamn day.
That officer who spoke out is now dead from a single car accident. People believe it was most likely a suicide after this came out.
Oh, so you couldn't live with himself, right?
That's what they believe. So let's say allegedly. And that is your front page news. All right. On a fiber. Yeah, I know. All I know on a Friday. I know. I know. All right.
Well, when we come back, Reverend Al Sharpton will be joining us. We don't kick out.
Reverend Al has a new book out called Rise Up a Country at a Crossroads. And we're going to talk to him when we come back. So Don't Move is The Breakfast Club. Good morning. The Breakfast Club.
Warning everybody is D.J. Envy, Angela Charlamagne, the guy we are, the Breakfast Club, we got a special guest on the line. Reverend Al Sharpton, welcome.
Good morning. Reverend Al. Good morning. Good morning. Good to be with you. You know, the rap derivs has put out a new book called Rise Up Confronting a Country at a Crossroads. After watching that presidential debate last night. And I like to call it the presidential versus battle. It was a stand up comedy special. We are definitely at a crossroads. Crossroads look like to you, Reverend.
Well, I mean, if you look at the fact that for the last half century, we were fighting, struggling, trying to deal with issues like criminal justice, like voting rights, like reparations and then other silos of society, gender equality, LGBTQ rights, everybody fighting in whatever it is that they had to deal with and making some incremental steps toward a more sound way of dealing with things. And then all of a sudden, you get the backlash.
After eight years of a black president, Donald Trump rises up with the birther movement because president of the United States and tries to undo all of that, tries to stop the Affordable Care Act. He tries to stop voter participation by ending all the lawsuits the Justice Department had about voter suppression methods like voter I.D. He tried to stop affirmative action. He stepped in the courts. So America is at a crossroads. And we've got to decide whether we're going to rise up and fight back and continue the path that could lead us into empowerment or whether we're going to roll over and let them just go down this other path.
This is a time in the age of George we ought to tell all of these cases we're fighting. It couldn't be more in your face right now. What do you want to rise up or whether you're just going to roll over? What did you think? What were your thoughts on both Joe Biden and Donald Trump? Did you think it was anything to benefit the people?
I think that it was a debacle, not a debate. Clearly, Donald Trump came there unprepared to really talk about anything. I think Biden wins by default, but I think he could have been stronger on the crime bill on March 19 for the crime bill. He has now said that it was unintended consequences and that he had over shot the runway. I think he's a better choice than Trump, but that does not mean he shouldn't be held accountable. And I think he could have answered that stronger by saying, yes, I was wrong in 94 to go as far as I did, but used to put the crime bill.
Now, Mr. Trump, you support stop and frisk.
Now, I agree with you on on the Joe Biden stuff. But it's interesting, though, Joe Biden has had years to apologize for that 94 crime bill. He would just apologize for that 94 crime bill years ago. He wouldn't be a vulnerable spot for Trump to use against him. Not exactly.
The thing I think people don't know is I read a lot about it in this book is that people have to know where we are, is based on where we've been, the struggle in the Democratic Party. Always those of us that was trying to pull them to what they called the left, particularly on black issues, always blocked by those that were more centrist, including black elected officials when I ran for president. A lot of them didn't support me when Reverend Jackson ran against or in fact, they created a lot of these guys in the center to try and neutralize us.
You said, and rise up that the Democratic Party has failed the black community. So how do you convince your brothers and sisters that this election, this will be the moment that Democrats finally show up for us?
If we show that the way that you've got to convince them is you've got to say that I'm not sending you a bill of goods, that this is some panacea, but that we're going to have to hold them accountable and we're going to put people in there with them that we're going to hold accountable. So, yeah, Joe Biden knows that we'll go after him. And Kamala Harris knows that we're expecting her to also deal in a way that is accountable.
So I saw the plan he puts out lift every voice, OK, but where are we going with all of the issues and hold you to that?
I was still talking to Reverend Al Sharpton. Now, how do we get black people excited to vote? We seen what happened last year with so many people didn't come out. But then we also seen what happened when Barack was running and we all came out. How do we get people excited to come out and vote this year?
Well, when you look at the fact that we are about to see somebody put on the Supreme Court that is written and judicial in some of their legal writings, they want to hear of the Affordable Care Act. If you look 30 million people lose a preexisting condition, that's something to get excited about because we talk about our love one when we look at. The fact that they are not going to deal with any of the police cases, they have said that on the side of law and order, Trump said it the night they are on the side of law enforcement.
So how do we stand up as we all have full of vigilance for everybody, Taylor, for armed robbery and not excited about making sure we get a Justice Department that will be coming in? I don't I think that we are looking for excitement from the wrong places. It's not about the politicians. It's about the policy. And if we deal with policy, then I think that we have our self interests at hand. Why is Joe Biden such a terrible candidate like he's just not good at this?
Why have they?
He's a regular Joe, no pun intended. And I think that he's a guy that his political acumen is not based on. Past charisma is based on a he is a guy that knows how to get in the room and make things happen. We just need to make sure that he's going to make them happen to us.
Do indeed. What do you say to people who say we shouldn't critique Joe Biden right now, like we have to support him because it feels like he's telling us to just shut up and vote like people, athletes just shut up and do not think that we've got a critique of.
I think we've got to critique them and vote. I think that many of us would probably vote more if we would let that critique go down and say, OK, you hear me now I'm going to do this, but I want you to know what my apprehension is. I don't think we should tell people don't critique because I critique President Obama. And as you know, I had access to Obama, Obama work together. But I would question that we get in the room and debate things.
I don't want anybody telling me to help them and I can't critique them. We are not looking for people to be our rulers. We're looking for people to be our way to address our situation. And I'm not even saying you got to do everything I like. I might want 10 things that get seven, but I've got to know I can get those seven I have.
We got more with Reverend Al when we come back. 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 is still kicking in with Reverend Al Shulem.
You name the book Rise Up. What's the best way for folks to rise up during these times? They do it all the way through peaceful protest. Do you think people that are about a little about some real some more type of action that's a little more aggressive? Is that the best way to rise up? What's the best way I'm talking about in the book?
I mean, first of all, rise up, everybody rise up wherever they could be in your house. Make sure everybody is registered to vote. It could be you going to town hall meetings. I give a whole chapter on these are various ways you can rise up. I come out of the nonviolent, peaceful movement. Others come out of self defense. I don't think our problem is each other. Our problem is we're fighting and I talk about that in the book, that these purists that act like if you don't do it my way, then you're wrong.
As long as you're doing something that will lead to the empowerment and uplifting of our people, then you do you. I do me a different lanes on a highway. We don't all ride the same lane as long as we go into the same place.
You know, you were alive during the civil rights era. We shall forever now, even though you, a young man, do you feel that same kind of shift now? Did it feel like the kind of crossroads we're at now? Then there's nothing new. There was the same thing with the younger folk questioning the old guard. Don't forget the Freedom Riders that broke up segregation in the South. Riding the bus that got John Lewis in to follow, the king was not in charge.
And Freedom Riders, he never got on the bus.
But the king was with a structured organization, Southern Christian Leadership Conference. It was NAACP. There were organized movements in Mississippi of sixty four Freedom Summer. So all these people that are talking now like this is new. Oh, you got young folks doing this. You've got whites doing this. You've got the civil rights organization to do a neck of people that don't know the history. They too lazy to do the research. I've seen all this before. You've got to remember.
Go, Charlamagne. God, we had Malcolm and Martin at the same time who had different tactics.
At the same time, we had Martin Luther King and Malcolm X. We had Adam Clayton Powell in college. We had sat with him in Mississippi. We had Thurgood Marshall in the courts all at the same time. How do we get to the twenty first century with social media and we can only have one Negro talk at a time. We have never been in that situation. So why are we letting people do that now? So if people want to do this, fine.
If I want to bring a hundred fifty thousand people to Washington nonviolently to stand up on legislation, find somebody else, do something, that's fine. Why do we have to get in each other's way when all of us in the same situation as well?
What do you say to these folks, men who say things like, hey, don't let your president get your ass kicked? You are not our ancestors. How does that make you feel when you say we are not our ancestors? Well, we're here because my ancestors why again, do you have to survive on your elders or your ancestors to make your point? No other race does that. Every race extols the ancestors and talk about their traditions, their holidays and everything they do is erected around them.
The continuation of something we have been taught not to continue, something to condemn our elders. And, you know, when it comes from slavery, the first thing they did to make sure they can enslave you is break the family up so you don't know your daddy, you don't know your family. They were sold a different state because if they can break up that connection, they can then name you after them, impose their values on them. We have got to get out of the slave mentality of fighting the generations ahead of us, but learning from them, improving on what they get and having our family debate and move on, we can cannot have this where we don't put the family back together.
That's what led to sleep.
But I think they discredit John Lewis and MLK Jr., the other peaceful people who because they were nonviolent, but they acted like it wasn't other folks out there who brush your back.
That was a debate that it was. That's what I said. We had Malcolm and Dr. King at the same time and they found a way to communicate and get together. We had the Panthers and John Lewis and Jesse Jackson at the same time.
You got Michael. Yeah. You know, and Stokely Carmichael, Rap Brown, Jesse Jackson, John Lewis, all around the same age, about a year of each other. It was never no one way, but they found a way not to be taking shots at each other. They would say, you do your thing. I do, man. I remember that with Stokely Carmichael. Kwame Touraine was that change. He came to my headquarters when I got older.
He said I could use a kid on the Jesse. And we talked about things they had what they called operational unity. Now we have people that just we spend more time even now, rappers taking shots at each other rather than taking shots at the enemy. Maybe you're scared. I mean, let me ask you question. Y'all did express that. How do you have young activists more angry at each other and nobody's question of what are you really doing?
What is this young black system? You got to do the right way. Why are you fighting among each other? You've got to know people that you should be questioning.
What is it like to be liberal latte liberals, these liberals that live in privileged spots sit back sipping lattes and dictate this is what we want. This is what is progressive. This is who should speak for us. They never engage.
They don't get their hands dirty. They're not in the trenches. They don't know anything about what we really strive for. They speak for us and never speak to us. And we look at them as the great leaders of the progressive movement, progressive on everything on race.
Let me ask a question right now. Donald Trump, you think if he if he loses, you think he will just walk out of that White House or you think will have a break, that Donald Trump's going to try every trick in the book to stay there?
And I think that if Biden and they to do anything, they ought to be prepared on how they're going to remove him. Donald Trump is facing possible prosecution and he is not going he's going to try everything in the court. He's going to try everything in terms of those polls. And I would not be surprised if he didn't physically try to stay that way out. But he's got to go. And I think that the the preparation for that is something to fail.
What happens if Trump is really if he's re-elected, that we are going to face some very serious time? I think that that is why I've said as we put our National Action Network Bridgegate, is that you got to get everybody to vote one to deal with the presidency, but also the Senate. I suppose if they lose the White House to Trump, let the Democrats to the Senate because there's about five to 15 seats that conflict. He can't do anything if there's a Democratic Senate and a Democratic Congress.
So people got to vote all the way down the ticket. That's why they need to rise up and deal with this.
Have we got more with Reverend Al when we come back? Don't Move is the Breakfast Club. Good morning, E.J. Envy.
Angela Ye Charlemagne, the guy we are the Breakfast Club, is still kicking in with Reverend Al Sharpton.
Do you believe black women are the true catalyst for change?
I think black women are a true catalyst for change. I think black women, I think black youth and I think strong black men. I write in the book about how when Shirley Chisholm ran for president, I was 18, I was a of a youth directors and our black men would not support. A black leading man would not support them. We need to get out of this sexism and misogyny in our community and I saw it firsthand from when I was a kid would be in a room with black, older, black preaching and black politicians that wouldn't support us just because she's a woman.
Any man that's intimidated by a woman because she's a woman is not a real man. And a woman got to step down. You just step up. You don't have to step will.
And so strange to me that we're afraid to let women lead. But yet we lean on our grandmothers and our mothers our whole lives like that. He feels the foundations of our lives. So why would we just delete and they let us out?
I was raised by a single mother and dealt with people like Mr. Chisholm. I write about that and rise up and I write about Coretta Scott King helped to nurture me in my activism. Dr. King's wife. So if we are nurtured by them, sheltered by them, that's why I could relate so to George Fly without eulogy at his funeral because of his mother. I think that shocked me is that I went out, led a vigil in Minneapolis at the request of the family, didn't actually come back to the funeral.
So I got back to the funeral. I said the following is and who is the brother of George and Ben Crump, the lawyer who I call the attorney general, black Americans. He's really good. I said I'd like to meet George's mother before I do the funeral. I said his mother died. I said his mother died. He said, yeah. I said but he was calling for his mother when he was on the ground dying. And it hit me.
That's how we were. If nothing else was there for us to call for mom. And as he knew that he was at the point of death because his mother, who wasn't even there, we ended up burying them next to his mother in Houston. And I did know a lot about other violence. So how do we always know that about momma? But we don't want our momma to lead us. That's ridiculous. Just ridiculous.
How can a black person in good conscience be a member of the Democratic or Republican Party? I think that if you're joining a party, you use the party and I want to see what you produce. Most of them joined to be used by the party. And that's why I think that we part company, I ride in a car to get where I'm going. I don't ride in a car and exit the car. Tell me where you want to go.
And you mentioned Kanye West earlier. Do you think Kanye West is a huge distraction for what people are really trying to do?
I love Kanye. I think Kanye music is great, but I don't understand how Kanye embraces Donald Trump goes and puts a mega hat on in an Oval Office. Is politics over there? And that is not a question I've set up with Charlamagne God. And you talk about people that take shots at some of us or none of them. I'm talking about hip hoppers. Now, that said anything to their fellow artists. What are you doing here? I'm not saying condemn them or not, but no, I didn't raise the question like you take shots at your fathers and mothers, but you also say to your fellow artists, what's up with this?
Yeah, at least not publicly. You've got to you've got to condemn certain behavior publicly. And I don't think that's causing a beef between you and another person is just it's just checks and balances. Right. We've got to keep people.
But not only is it checks and balances, you don't mind checks and balances. People like me are the leaders. So you can call us out even on sound, but you can't put him is causing a beat that is a slave. Break up the family mentality and take a swing at my father. But I can't take my brother who's over there with Trump.
Right. So basically what you're saying is you need me to give you some balls, like I just said that not at all. But all I'm trying to do is let's be consistent here. That's all. I'm with you. I'm with you now, of course.
And you think this is the most important election in American history?
That's what I think is one of the most important, is the certainly the most important in our lifetime. When you see a Supreme Court step to take, the little we got, I think is the most important in our lifetime.
Before we go, I just wanted to put it bluntly, why Democrats? So like when Joe Biden got asked the other day about stacking the Supreme Court, why couldn't you just answer the question?
If I knew the answers, why people did things, I'd be wiser than I am. All I'm saying is I've got to use the court is going to give me where I've got to go. Even if I think the car I have some tires that is going to give out before they just I just don't like the fact they so soft light is allowed himself to be pushed over.
And it seems like they don't stand for nothing. That's what you can't get.
I'm the guy that's always been fighting and I will keep fighting. But I also know that sometimes I've got to use what I've got to get what I want. James Brown told me that they go right. I apologize for using that word, you didn't feel good when it came out. I couldn't think of no other word to insult me.
I heard it before.
Well, every now riled up confronting the country at the crossroads is available everywhere you go get books right now. Mareb is always a pleasure talking to you, my brother.
Always a pleasure to meet you guys.
Breakfast is about to go with.
No, we are.
This is the rumor report with on the Breakfast Club. Now we got to congratulate Nicki Minaj.
She is a first time mom. She and husband Kenneth Petty have welcomed their new child to the world, dropping bombs.
Nicki Minaj and Jennifer. You know, in this day and age where black maternal death rate is through the roof, it is always a beautiful thing to hear about a black woman successfully having a baby with no complications and still being here. That's right.
And they call me Wednesday in L.A. We don't know the baby's name or sex, but we just want to say congratulations on a healthy, pregnant and a healthy delivery.
That's right. I said absolutely not. Now, do you want some new music? You ready for some rerig music? Who's really gonna Rihanna any beauty? Riri. Yes, the artist. I don't care if I don't want to make music, music and not Rihanna doing great out here in life.
Well, she's finally giving us some information about her album, her nine studio album or not. She said, I just want to have fun with music. Everything is so happy. The world we live in is a lot. It's overwhelming every single day. As she was talking to the Associated Press, she said, and with music, I'm using that as my outlet. I just want to have fun with that.
She's also said she's veering away from genre focus records for her new music era. She says now it's more what I do.
I feel personally, what do I want to put out as an artist? How do I want to play with my art? How do I want to interpret that? How do I want to reimagine it? So they believe some new music is coming soon.
Ain't none of these new aromas. These are just stories.
That's what they all look Angeles out and I'm just giving them what they give me. They gave me this story. We got it.
Let's make the Romo report great again and actually report some rumors, make up stuff like everybody else does. No, we're not doing that now. Just.
No, I actually I was I was on Fifty Beauty the other day.
I was on the Fifty Face Shade Finder trying to find my phone, trying to find my foundation shade. No. Oh Fenty faces since he was handpicked for my skin tone. I have a whole quids. Have a whole quiz on Fenty beauty dotcom called the Fenty Face Shade Weiner. Yes. All right.
Well, let me find out. I mean, the looks good on you this morning. I could tell you did a little on your nose this morning. It looks pretty good. Oh, no, no, no foundation this morning. It's all me, baby. The doctor said my dermatologist. No foundation this morning. Don't do me like that.
Now, lastly, Takashi Sixty-nine reportedly hospitalized in Florida following caffeine and hydro.
Hydro. What is it, Hydroxycut? Is that what it's called? Hydroxycut. Hydroxycut? Yeah, that's the weight loss. The weight loss. FABRICE Exactly.
Well, he was looking to get in shape.
He says when you get out of jail, he weighed over 200 pounds.
So he was, I guess, taking these Hydroxycut pills and some type of caffeine, some powerful diet pills.
And it left him up and he was in the hospital for two days and just leave the country and go get your body done like all the other chicks around you. Six, nine. You ain't on probation no more. I guess you kids, you can't travel, right?
Well, I yeah, I don't I don't think he could travel out of the U.S. I mean, but if he wanted to, he could get a liposuction in the States. Right. And how many rat poison jokes we see online yesterday? I'm sure it was a million ugly. I'm just kidding. It's only imagine I don't get your body.
I mean, you're you're 20 something years old and you're two hundred pounds.
You can lose that by just eating right and running right. By the way, it went quiet. He went quiet after his album flopped. How many?
You know, like five thousand thirty dollars or something like that. They said he he wanted to lose some weight. He said he was looking big and before he got back online, he wanted to lose weight. He lost twenty five pounds and wanted to lose another twenty five. I guess that's why he was taking those pills. But you take those pills, they're not going to you still got to work out like you still got to train. Like there's no easy way for anything.
And I tell six nine one thing, if you don't sell no records you're going to lose about six hundred pounds because all the security guards are going to be gone because you will be able to feed them.
All right. I'm telling you that right now, if you want to lose weight fast, keep doing what you're doing and not selling records, that security going to be gone. It's about six hundred pounds immediately lost her.
Well, he spoke to academics and he said now that he's at the hospital, he's going to get back to exercise and he finally realizes he needs a trainer and not no CVS's products.
You better save your money. All right. You better start running around whatever little neighborhood you live in because you ain't been you can't do no shows. And you only saw like thirty or forty thousand records. All right. That money is about to be low. Low, low, low, low. All right, well, that is your rumor report now, Charlamagne, who are you giving that down to? There is a woman named Diane Lorrain. You know, she actually she actually came from Nicki Minaj yesterday.
And I think we need to have a little pity party for her.
A petty party. Nicki Petty, what's wrong with you? Oh, what a pity party. Yes.
All right. We'll get into that next. Today is next. Don't Move is The Breakfast Club. Good morning.
The Breakfast Club. Your mornings will 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 this time, but don't give the day, don't you? I'm a Democrat, so don't hesitate a little bit of a mix like I don't feel okay on the other day at the club. You know, I've been called a lot in my 23 years, but don't here. Today is a new one down Dalkia today for Friday, October 2nd goes to Diana Lauraine.
Now, do you know who Diana Llerenas. Good, me neither. But her bio says she ran for election to the U.S. House to represent California's 12th Congressional Congressional District. She lost in the primary election on March 3rd. Twenty twenty. Her congressional campaign website described her as a YouTube host, conservative political commentator and author of a book, Making Love Great Again, and a host of her show, Winning the Culture War with Diana Lorrain.
Her professional experience includes working as a self-employed life and relationship coach and as a manager in marketing and PR Yemen never heard of her. I just know she seems to get attention from time to time trolling rappers. A couple of weeks ago, she came at Cardi B and said that the world needs less Khateeb and more Melania trump card to be responded to DNA and said very eloquently, didn't she, as in Melania used to sell that wop.
So I want to go back to Court TV this morning. Well, actually, last night her tweets were interesting. Before we get to why she's getting donkey today, this morning, let me read you a couple of these. Last night, six hours ago, she tweeted, Our president was able to destroy Joe Biden in that debate while having covid. The man is a machine, no Conaway's machine. And she said, praying for you at real Donald Trump hashtag Trump has called.
Then two hours ago, she tweeted, I'm just going to say what we're all thinking. Trump was fine until the debate when they set up microphones and podiums for him. Incubation period is usually two to three days. He tests positive a couple of days after the debate. I put nothing past or less nothing hashtag Trump has covid. Who the hell is thinking that? Nobody is thinking that, right?
Never mind the fact Trump said covid was a hoax. He doesn't wear a mask. He's always attending large gatherings and his aide Hope Hicks caught covid. None of that could possibly lead to him having covid just blame it on the Democrats setting him up at the God damn debate. OK, all right. All right. Anyway, just painting the picture for the type of person Diana seems to be. Attention is what she wants. So attention is what she shall receive.
Now, yesterday, October 1st at three 11 pm in a now deleted tweet, Diana Lorrain said, and I quote, Nicki Minaj just had a child. Poor kid. That's it. That's the tweet. The Petis, Nicki Minaj and Caniff. If you're just just joining us, welcome to Child Yesterday. Congratulations to them. In an era where the black maternal death rate is through the roof, I'm always pleased when black babies are brought into this world and everybody is healthy and alive after the facts.
Absolutely. Petis, I just don't understand how there are people on this planet that are so evil that a child can be brought into this world and for nothing more than attention likes and tweets.
Somebody like Diana Lorrain with tweet out porked now, last time that I checked, Nicki Minaj had a net worth of one hundred million dollars. In fact, she's the first female rapper to ever earn one hundred million dollars. I know money isn't the end all be all. There are kids born to rich people with poor character every day. But what has Nicki Minaj ever done to warrant this Wicked Witch of the West, Diana Lorrain, to say anything less than congratulations in regards to her new child?
OK, Diana. Didn't your mama ever tell you that if you don't got nothing nice to say and shut the F up forever. Like, why all the foul stuff we see your president say and do have you never once uttered the words poor bear, poor drunk, poor Donald, poor Eric. I don't even know if those Trump kids names. It isn't Eric, right? It doesn't matter. Nobody cares. The point is, how can you have a book called Making Love Great Again when you clearly don't have any love in your heart?
If you want to make love great again, start with yourself. I can look at your Twitter timeline and tell that you are hurt human. You are a walking wounded, only a walking wound with tweet out some nonsense like this about a black woman who just had a baby, a baby that is worth more than you right now. Now, I noticed you deleted the tweet because those damn barbs, barbs, I know we have had a complicated relationship over the years, but I have always appreciated the barbs.
Petty. I really do. And today we need to have a petty party barbs. It's almost like a celebration for the Petis. OK, Nikki Caniff in the new scene. Barbes Deana's Instagram is Deanna for Congress. I repeat her Instagram is Deanna for Congress as DEA and a F or CEO and as that's her Instagram, it's time for a petty party on behalf of the Petis. OK, you made her delete her tweet yesterday, but you can do better.
I seen you do better, Barbes. I've seen you better than that. OK, I think if you bobs put your mind to it, you could make her put our Instagram on private. I really do. You got all weekend. No rush. Just focus. See, after Diana there was another guy named Dean Browning. He tweeted, Nicki Minaj has given birth to a child today. If it is a girl, I pray does not turn out like her mother.
If it is a boy I pray does not turn out like his father. Bless that child, they will need a lot of moral guidance. Wow. There is Twitter at Dean Browning right now.
Mind you, these are people running for political office, if I'm not mistaken. Dan Browning. I mean, Dean Browning is a Republican politician in Pennsylvania attempting to run for Congress. I don't know why all of these people that are attempting to run for Congress are coming for Nikki, are just coming for black female rappers the way that they do. But at Dean Browning on Twitter is his name. And what you BOF need to know is he was influenced to tweet that because Dionna did it all.
I'm saying y'all, Bob, this is all Uncle Charlie is saying. If you don't make a real social media example out of somebody, they may going to keep trying Nicki and her new baby. So y'all got to protect the Petis by being petty. OK, our Instagram is Tianna for Congress. You can get that for me, d.E.A and a f o our CEO.
Angriest Diana for Congress on Instagram and the guy on Twitter that's at Dean Browning Paideia and V.R., O.W. and I and G.P.A.. That's on Twitter. Hey, boss, I've got work to do. React accordingly. So on Monday I can come in here and say Diana Lorrain was the pinata at the bar of social media. Pity party this weekend. Poor kid. Please let Chelsea Handler give Diana Lorrain the biggest hee hee haw hee haw.
That is way too much, Dan. Mayonnaise.
Mayonnaise was Varney's was heavy in that one. Yeah, well, come on, Bob, I know you can do this. Bob's a I need the boss to get busy this week at least. Yeah. They got the memo then.
White folks. The same energy I'll be giving us when we got here. All right.
Absolutely. All right. Now, when we come back, let's talk about your president, Donald Trump and his wife. They have coronavirus. You think it's a whole allegedly. Really got it. Let's talk about eight hundred five eight five one two five one is The Breakfast Club. Good morning.
The Breakfast Club. It's topic time. Because 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 Ye shall I mean the guy we are the Breakfast Club. Now, if you just joined us, we were talking about Donald Trump right now.
It came out yesterday that him and his wife have coronavirus. So we're asking, do you think it's real? Do you think it's a hoax? Do you think he really has the coronavirus? You want to start with me? 805 505. Well, let's start with you.
I don't believe it. Sadly, Donald Trump would have to pass away from coronavirus to make me believe he had it. God forbid that happens because I don't wish death on anyone. But I think this is all a stunt. I feel this is just his way to change the headlines in regards to not condemning white supremacy just gives him a reason to not campaign for 14 days, stay out of the press, keep the bad headlines down, not show up for the next debate.
And I think this could all be a stunt to make one of those value menu vaccines. They Russian not look safe. He'll take it on national TV all of a sudden be well and give the illusion to the American public that the vaccine is safe. It'll look like a hero because he's one of the first to try it. Millions of people lined up to get it. And microchip implant Foleo, you know, and I've been thinking about this all morning long, and I have to agree with you a little bit.
Not the microchips part, but the part where I don't necessarily believe he has it. But think about it. Let's say he says he has it. He goes on national television. He acts like he takes the vaccine, he gets healed, he's OK. And now he looks like the hero. He looks like the guy. Hey, I'm the one that rushed this vaccine. I'm the one that got this vaccine push through. You need to vote for me because I care more about you than your body.
So, yes, I think it's a hoax. I don't necessarily think he has coronavirus now.
Now, my homie, Stephanie Young, Stephanie is a black woman that I highly respect and listen to often. She left a comment on my Instagram and told me, no, let's not spread this covid is real. He has it. She has it. And this proves that he has failed to address this issue. But all the science and doctor's recommendations. Two hundred thousand people are dead. Him getting covid proves all his actions and the resistance to the truth were what we knew all along.
He was wrong and he has failed and now his selfishness has endangered us all. I first of all, let me say I totally agree with Stephanie, OK? Stephanie Young told me I agree with her. If Trump and Melania really have covid, they earned it.
But my reply to Queen Stephanie Young would be covid is definitely real. But it's just hard to believe that as much as this administration lies and has tried to downplay the threat of Kobe and now all of a sudden he would have it, it feels like an October surprise. And if he does really have it and survives it, we really in trouble because then Trump can push the narrative that that that ninety nine percent of cases are totally harmless. He's been trying to push that narrative already.
What if he gets it and survives it at his age and his size? See, that's the thing that not taken into consideration either was that if Trump survives, he can really push the narrative that is harmless because he has two important risk factors.
covid complication is seventy four. Seventy four. And he's two hundred and forty four pounds.
He's overweight and he's all right, but his body mass index is over thirty.
Right. So I just his age, his hospital hospitalization odds are five times higher than young males in the 20s and his mortality rate is 90 times higher now, 120 to forty four pounds.
Now you mentioned October surprise. So people out there, I don't know what the quote unquote October surprise is. Tell them what the October surprises.
And if I sound like that's not kinky, you can't make it kinky. But I.
Well, in American political jargon, an October surprise is a news event deliberately created are timed to influence the outcome of an election, particularly one for the US presidency or sometimes an event occurring spontaneously that has the same effect. So that's that's what this feels like to me. It feels like an October surprise. And I mean, if you Google is so many of them, I'll give you the last one that we probably can remember. Let's see. Let's see what October surprise wasn't Clinton versus oh, Hillary.
A recording from two thousand five was released on October 7th. And which Republican Party nominee Donald Trump used explicit language and claimed, when you're a star, they let you do it, you could do anything, grab them by the get?
Yes, yes. If that was the October surprise.
OK, and then the same day, WikiLeaks began a two month campaign of releasing emails and experts from the account of John Podesta, and they shed a negative light on Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton. So those were the two October surprises. The reason was, yeah, back in 2016. OK, all right. Well, let's go to the phone. Let us hear from the people. Hello. Who's this morning? Hey, what's your name? You can hear me OK?
Yeah, we can hear you now put the Newport down into us. We call them black and white so early in the morning. Oh, I'm working. I'm working. This is big I see from Newark. And I just want to say that I do not believe Donald Trump is has a cold it. I believe this is a ploy to delay the election on the news they're talking about. Oh, this could be so bad for president because no one has ever been sick like this.
I just don't believe it's a ploy. And we need to wake up. There are so many people, including our black people, who support this man. He's a horrible person. How could you how could you if you hadn't said?
I don't think I don't think they'll delay the election. But I mean, it's sad that we live in an era where if our president does have Korona, he got to die in order for us to believe. That's the only way I would believe it. I'll be honest with you in this case. Thank you for calling you be safe out there at work and no.
Right, guys, I love you back. You all keep growing. God bless you, Bo. Thank you so much.
Eight hundred five eight five one two five one. It came out yesterday that your president, Donald Trump, has coronavirus him and his wife. So what are your thoughts? Is it real? Is it fake? Let's talk about is the Breakfast Club. Good morning. Morning.
Everybody is the envy. Angela Angelilli, Charlemagne, the guy we are the Breakfast Club.
Now, if you're just joining us, we're talking about your president, Donald Trump, what, about eight hundred five eight five one two five. Well, we're asking.
All right, now, do you think he has coronavirus is a Charlamagne the God Lynard McKelvie talking.
I don't believe Donald Trump would have to die from complications of covid in order for me to believe it. And God forbid that happens because I don't wish death on nobody.
And as I told you earlier, if he survives coronavirus because he really has it, you can really push the narrative that ninety nine percent of cases are totally harmless because Trump has two important risk factors for Kolby complications. He's seventy four and he's two hundred and forty four pounds. He's all but good. OK, his mortality chances are ninety times higher than young males in their twenties. So if he has it and survives it, boy, he really going to push that narrative that ninety nine percent of cases are totally harmless.
But I really think this is just all a ploy for him to look like a hero and be one of the first people to take those value menu vaccines. And he won't have all of your lining up to take that goddamn vaccine. And next thing you know, you have a microchip in your.
Anyway, let's go to the phone lines. Hello, who's this? My name is Dennis.
A Dennis would tell Trump we're asking, do you believe that he really has coronavirus or do you think it's all a hoax?
I think it's very true. I think being the fact that they are always around people and so much, it's nothing but the truth you think is the truth.
Yes, I wouldn't doubt that either. Listen, I mean, you know, if he got it, he earned it.
You know, denying the science, not wearing a mask, always having these large rallies, being around a whole lot of people. So if he got it, he earned it. But absolutely.
I'm telling you, in order for me to believe it, he's got to pass away. God forbid. I would believe. Let's see what the Lord has in store for us. Let's go to another caller. Hello. Who is this? Jamal, what's happening? Jamal, good morning. I can't hear what's going on, fellas. Yeah, you put that out there way too easy, man. Just out of nowhere. Just ran. And we see right after the white supremacist talk.
So now they can go knock around and a lady has stuff like this. You know what I'm saying?
Yeah, I can I can't see somebody who lives the way he lives and who has downplayed Coronavirus the way he has would actually come out and admit me, my wife, my eight whole pigs, all of us have it. I just don't see that. That's just that's just that's that's so not him.
Right. All right. Let's go to one more caller. Hello. Who's this? Enzo. Enzo. Good morning, Enzo. What's happening? Morning.
I'd like to say good rising to the Breakfast Club as it is. A pleasure to be here. Thank you so much.
Rather talk to the I think that the whole coronavirus thing is a ploy for some political team to try to do some damage control on this man, because before this happened, they were talking about the debate. They were talking about taxes. And so recently, Malama league table are now all of a sudden they got coronavirus virus always talking about they could keep him locked up to some extent. So he can't do or say anything crazy. I mean, unless I don't take this one away.
But me, what it is, I'm going to go into quarantine. If they're going to keep them locked up for a while, they can't tolerate craziness. We're going to talk about and everything. I agree.
That's what I said. I feel like this is just his way to change the headlines in regards to him not condemning white supremacy and all other negative press that he's gotten, the taxes, all of that stuff. Man, it gives him a reason to not campaign for 14 days, stay out of the press, keep the headlines down before the election.
Now, he's changed the narrative all together and all that goes away, but we can't let it go away. We still got to bring that up. Keep him coming. OK, what about this? What about that? He's on his own party. But what about this? What about that? You keep bringing it up and God knows what he'll do if he's tweeting because he's bored, because he can't read a book.
So that is true. That is true.
All right. Well, thank you, bro. What's the moral of the story? If there's a moral the moral of the story is Donald Trump would have to die, God forbid, from complications of covid in order for me to believe that he actually had a right. That man is seventy four years old and two hundred and forty four pounds. He is all but in good. OK, and if he survives this, we're going to have hell on our hands because he can really push the narrative that ninety nine percent of cases are totally harmless.
But, you know, I don't I don't believe any of this. I really just feel like this is a ploy to change. The headlines are as a ploy to get you out to line up, to take that goddamn value menu vaccine that are going to be rolling out because he going be the first person to act like he's taking it and be the hero. And next thing you know, all y'all going to have microchips, y'all booties right in time for Christmas.
My goodness. All right. Well, when we come back, we got your room report. It's Friday. So what's new music Fridays? We'll tell you what. Artist drops some new music, so don't Move is The Breakfast Club.
Good morning. The Breakfast Club. She's spilling the tea. This is the room, a report with Angela Yio on the Breakfast Club. A lot of the music is out today. We start off with 21, savage him in Metro Boomin have a new album is called Savage Mode too.
I didn't get a chance to listen to it yet, but let's play a snippet of the album. This one's featuring Drake. I'm a star.
I need you to listen. Now let me teach you how to stand beside. You won't get a day on your phone. I'll take your clothes out. I'm a scientist, but I'm. Turn the lights down later down. Mr. Right, right now, taking your phone off, take your clothes off. I'm sad, but up. Said the lady went and did it said. Trade. And that was Mr. Right Now featuring Drake, I haven't gotten a chance to listen to it yet.
I'm a twenty one savage supporter, though. I like twenty one savage a lot. I think, first of all, I think he's a dope rapper, but I think he's a dope human. I really enjoyed his conversation with the Big Facts podcast, D.J. Scream and Big Banks yesterday dropping a close bond for the Big Facts podcast and baby.
I see you too. I really enjoyed that conversation you had with a 21 yesterday.
He was giving out some free jewelry.
And in that conversation, you know, and also why release a new album is called My Life for Honey.
He says that the album is highly influenced by Tupac. So let's hear a snippet off of that.
I had him back at a bit of a game with the team, though I did make a tackle watching for one of him. I like the tempo. She got a little harder to do, so I don't don't. So maybe like a little. I like to get mental, real patience when it hit, when I go out and, you know, stretch out like them and, you know, I've got to finish for them and I need them right now when you wait for them.
And that was Rodeo featuring Chris Brown and Tiger that I haven't heard new album yet. I'm beginning to get all that this weekend and also shout to the home.
Exxaro released a new record today featuring your Gardy. It's called Back This.
Tax to get it back to the jury by the time we got them, but jump on the ground and still get it on my face. Thanks to get it on my back, for one, a big. We said, hold that, you can return. All right, so that's some new music, so definitely check it out. And don't forget Brice until his album The Anniversary is out as well.
Now, Kyrie Irving and LeBron James, I guess they really just don't fit each other.
So Kyrie Irving was asked about taking the last shot at a game and this is what he said.
Ten seconds left one point game. Who should you Kyrie Kyrie. I know who's hot. I don't see it as that as anything other than that. Like one three pick and roll or I iso for either one of us or something great for our our team. One thing I've always been comfortable with is, you know, I felt like I was the best option on every team I played for, you know, down the stretch. This is the first time in my career I look down and like I'ma make that shot.
So that was kind of a shot at LeBron. I respect Kyrie. And, you know, he did have the biggest shot in Game seven of the NBA final that basically won the Cleveland Cavaliers that championship. But I mean, also LeBron on the defensive end with that block on Andre Iguodala.
But, you know, it's just kind of weird because Kyrie doesn't really have the consistency to have that conversation because he's heard a lot, you know what I'm saying? And he's great. Don't get me wrong, when Kyrie Irving is on the court is great.
Best ball handlers in the league. Yeah. Yeah. I don't, I don't know.
That's a, that's a weird statement to make when you've played with the greatest basketball player is there. Right. So well LeBron had this to say in return.
And if there's any way that he has an influence on you on the basketball court. In professional sports, you have guys that join forces to. Coming off of two guys could dominate specific school on their own respective teams.
Do they follow each other on social media? Is the big I don't know. But then Kyrie said this after what must always be brother against brother.
If I'm addressing anyone, I'll say their name. Come on, you. I'll listen to the false narratives. Let people live their lives. It's just a game. Because we live in a clique based society, it becomes something bigger. Not going to let it put me against anybody any more at any point, because that's not what it's about.
Kairys right too. But Kyrie has to know when he makes a statement like that. People are going to bring that back to his days in Cleveland with LeBron James. That's the first thing people are going to think. Kyrie, you played with the greatest basketball player of this era, LeBron James.
Like who's actually in who's playing in his tenth NBA finals by the way. And LeBron does follow Kyrie Irving.
I don't know if Tom follows LeBron. And another reason that's a wild statement is simply because LeBron James is literally taking every team he's played with to the NBA championship and won and he's about to do it again with the Lakers. He's definitely just the way it's just it's just a weird statement to make. When you played with LeBron James. I don't know that I don't know.
Kyrie probably is a better closer than LeBron, but I don't know if he's been on the court in enough big moments to prove it. That's what the hell I was trying to say this whole time.
All right. Literally that one statement. Goodness gracious.
It's all right. Well, that is your rumor report. All right, now shout to revolt.
We'll see you guys on Monday. Everybody else. The People's Choice Mix is up next. You could get your request in eight hundred five eight five one two five one is the Breakfast Club. Good morning. The Breakfast Club, your mornings.
