jane fonda is no stranger to controversy and she started uh some more when she called kovid listen to this god's gift to the left in an interview with the working families party this is a crossroads it's an existential crossroads and and we are people who can help determine which way humanity goes what a great gift what a tremendous opportunity we're just so lucky
00:30
we have to use it with every ounce of intelligence and courage uh and where with all we have because you're absolutely right this is it this is it and um you know i just think um covet is god's gift to the left yeah this is a terrible thing to say i mean i think it was a very difficult thing to send down to us but it has ripped the band-aid off who he
01:09
is and what he stands for and what is being done to average people and working people in this country we can see it now people who couldn't see it before you know they see it now and we have a chance to harness that anger and make a difference so i just i feel so blessed to be alive right now want to start ross yeah speaking of don't play politics with people's lives that was one of the most absurd things i mean i know i understand the jokes even chris rock i'm a huge chris rock
01:42
fan but when chris rock was up there said you know he felt bad for kovitt and other people when trump got coveted they had said that they're rooting for kovit i think that if this was something that was trump specific those things wouldn't feel as gross as they do but this is something that like you're dealing with 210 american families who have lost people to covet and to even refer to it as something that is a gift to anything from anybody or you're willing to capitalize on it to me is just it's just so gross
02:16
i disagree i disagree of course roz and i are like going at it today um i disagree because i understood i understand what she was trying to say did she say it the right way no are people are going to run with this and just kind of take that one clip that you know covet as a gift to the left of course they are because the country in the united states right now they're so polarized that it's like if you're not on one side or the other people are going to annihilate you and but i understand what she was saying the last four years of the trump administration has been
02:46
one dumpster fire after another there are so many things that people have forgotten about that the trump administration there are still thousands of children whose parents have been deported and those children are sitting in a facility where we don't know who's taking care of them we don't know how they're doing they've been like and there's the the russian scandal there's so many things that have happened that trump has managed to jimmy his way out of and for some reason because something else happens people have just forgotten it or they forgive him or they downplay what he's done and these are
03:17
very serious things and i think what she was trying to say was the timing of covet although horrible i don't think she was at all making light of people losing their loved ones and over 200 000 people dying in the united states but at the same time to hear a sitting president on tape tell a reporter bob woodruff i you know i knew about how serious this was and i downplayed it because i didn't want to cause a panic if you were a trump supporter and you
03:48
lost a family member a neighbor anything here those words were like a gut punch because it's like oh this didn't need to happen you mean my mom didn't need to die eating my grandpa could have still been here if you had done the right thing and so those people i think she was trying to say it's been that gift of life for the people who are really on his side and ignoring all the other things here is something you can't ignore here is something to show you exactly what this man is made of you can make all the excuses that you want for him but here
04:19
in this moment this is who he is your family member is gone they're not coming back because of a decision that he made and it was a selfish decision so i think that is the sentiment that she was trying to express whether people will hear it or not that's you know she's always been a very controversial person she's been involved in politics for a long time i'm sure she's no stranger to it but i i understood where she was coming from because it is still challenging to hear people say and i heard somebody yesterday say i'm still undecided i still don't know
04:50
and i'm like what else do you need to see it's a frustrating time to hear that kind of stuff yeah i'll say i don't i have very little care of what she was trying to say i'm only basing my opinion on what she actually did say and as far as the absurdity of of trump talking to woodward about you know downplaying things it it it sounded terrible to hear but i don't think that there has been a president that has sat in the white house that has not downplayed something to the american people while behind closed doors the any administration does whatever they can
05:22
to sort of mitigate dangers whether it be terrorism whether it be anything every single president has done that he just got caught on tape talking about it and those are really really harsh words every single president has made a call to do something where children die like it's just what do and we don't like to acknowledge the fact that they do it but it's just something that happens um it sucks to hear because we're all in the moment we're all in this moment and and and i don't like anybody sort of the idea of playing politics and how
05:54
you can sort of leverage covid to help your party and get somebody out of office or the fact that a vaccine may come out but i'm not going to take it if it's a donald trump vaccine i'm only going to take it if it's a somebody else's vaccine like all this stuff is so absolutely maddening to me and i think that it hurts it hurts a lot of families i don't think anybody wins when people say what she said nobody wins but who has politicized kovid more than trump everybody has everybody has no he but he
06:25
his job everybody no but with his job and with his position he should never have politicized it but he has he's even gone so far as to try to find a way to blame what's happened during copenhagen meanwhile um newsflash biden is not the sitting president so i disagree with that it's like you're right it is disgusting for people to politicize colvin but the president is the one who was politicized and made fun of people wearing a mask like you're right politicians do make decisions that hurt a lot of people but this is something that's an
06:55
international situation first of all and second of all he did pull it into pop he did put it into politics and he did mock people i'm not wearing the mask i'm not taking the precautions and at the moment he did that that's the difference between him and other politicians who made you know had to go in the back doors and back rooms to make decisions that you know some people are going to die some people are not going to make it through there but they don't then turn around and go on tv and taunt their the american people and the international organizations that are trying to stop something from happening
07:27
so i i i so disagree with that sorry graham graham's looking around water water right now we're just having fun grandma's just a little light conversation this is what raz and i do but yeah i know it's the truth like roxy made some great points like politicians do this but not like this not in this style this is unprecedented what we're seeing this year in this last four years i guess i guess what i'm saying and i'll just i'll just say i'll just say my last thing here i get i guess what i'm saying is that i i expect all of this
08:01
garbage from donald trump i'm disappointed when it comes from somebody else okay so you're not mad you're disappointed yeah i i expect it from trump this is what he this is what this is what he does everything is absurd i expect it from him but when somebody else sort of wades into those waters i just i just get this feeling of they're they're playing his game and i just don't want to see anybody else play that game because it's a loser's game and that's sort of what i find disappointing about the whole thing i hear you and this will be my last
08:33
thing that i say about this i agree with you that you'd like for everybody to take the high road and not uh take the easy bait from trump but i think you have to give them a little leeway these have been as a canadian i'm watching this situation and i keep saying to myself i don't know what i would do if i were an american citizen this has been a very hard four years and watching a leader just say and do things that are just get under your skin no matter how much you want to not pay attention and not get angry so i think sometimes people are making
09:05
decisions and saying things that they necessarily wouldn't say but i think they're frustrated let's give them a little the american public is probably suffering from a lot of ptsd in the last four years of this president and this administration and what they've done and the things that they have said that they really are just like you know what i know i normally wouldn't say this but god i'm at my wit's end with this it's really too much
