'Veep' Producer Admits He Can't Beat Sean Spicer Apologizing For Hitler Stuff

David Mandel really enjoys those mashup videos floating around the internet recently of the Trump administration bumbling along as the “Veep” music and ending credits come in.  But as the executive producer of “Veep,” they also make him thankful that he made the serendipitous decision to pull President Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) out of the show’s fictional White House before Donald Trump stepped inside the real one. “I laugh at it. I enjoy it, and then I thank my lucky stars,” Mandel told The Huffington Post over the phone. “I’m not sure you want to see Trump in the White House doing stupid things and then also Selina in the White House doing stupid things,” he said. “There’s no scene of Mike McLintock that I could write doing a press conference that’s funnier than Sean Spicer apologizing about his Hitler references, you know what I mean?” TRUMP MOMENT as @VeepHBO closing credit scene is (Based on @Walldo tweet) pic.twitter.com/aZpKydSbkn— Jesse McLaren (@McJesse) March 31, 2017 Instead, in the sixth season of HBO’s “Veep,” which returns this Sunday, Meyer and her team of bumbling fools will try and figure out how to traverse the political world as a former president of the United States ― one who, because she rose to the office through the vice presidency, never felt the pride that comes with being elected, much to her near-constant frustration.  It’s the scenario that Mandel pitched when he first sat down with Louis-Dreyfus in 2015 to discuss potentially replacing Armando Iannucci as the show’s executive producer after four seasons.  “Her goal in life is to be president of the United States,” he said. “If she wins an election and is the president of the United States, yeah, you can still have screw-ups every week and it can still be funny. Don’t get me wrong. But she’s achieved her goal. If Selina Meyer has achieved her goal, I think she’s just not as funny.” The idea of Meyer on a “quest for redemption” interested Mandel much more. He dug into books about Harry and Bess Truman paying for their own stamps and driving on their own from the Midwest to D.C. He studied Bill Clinton’s desire to reclaim the spotlight at Obama’s second convention. The writers spoke to Anita McBride, who worked for George H.W. Bush, about what it was like to unexpectedly find yourself out of a job after a surprise election loss, and to Doug Band, who worked closely on the Clinton Foundation. “The world of the former presidency is really rich,” he said. “Even in his later days, Richard Nixon found a certain amount of redemption, at least in foreign policy or in being invited back to the White House.” “So there’s just a lot of room to see what can happen.” We talked to Mandel ― who believes Meyer might be “the most misogynistic character on television” ― about where the show can go from here, and how it can survive at a time when the real world often seems more absurd than anything a comedy writer could think up.  The interview below has been edited and condensed for clarity. So last June, you guys are starting to try to figure out what you want to do with this new season. Selina is no longer in the White House. What kind of prep or what kind of ideas did you guys start batting around?  I’ll step you back one baby step. This kind of goes back to when I first sat down in the late winter of 2015 and took the job. What I ended up pitching out to Julia [Louis-Dreyfus] and HBO was this notion that we would resolve the tie, she would lose the presidency (because I felt that’s what had to happen) and then the show would then become about her as a former president of the United States. So we always knew we were working toward that. As we closed in on this notion of Dan Egan becoming a media person and moving into the news ― the idea of him doing sort of a Stephanopoulos and ending up on a morning show ― we started [zeroing in on] this idea of we’re going to jump ahead a year [to start this season] and the first scene will be Dan interviewing Selina on his new talk show as she tells us about what’s going on in her life. Those were the first ― what’s the word? ― the first shreds of what this season could be. But we started reading a lot of books about former presidents, meeting with candidates, talking to staffers and just really, as we always do on “Veep,” trying to find out a lot of the real research and stuff ― then off of that stuff, starting to spin our story of what her post-presidency would be like. So why did the idea of having her not win and enter that world excite you?  For me, the thing that she wants most in life is to win the presidency. Even though she was president of the United States, she kind of got there in a half-assed way. So her goal in life is to be president of the United States. If she wins an election and is the president of the United States, yeah, you can still have screw-ups every week and it can still be funny. Don’t get me wrong. But she’s achieved her goal. If Selina Meyer has achieved her goal, I think she’s just not as funny. So some of that is why, in my mind, she had to lose. When you guys prepping for it, what kind of books were you reading? There are these just wonderful books about the post-presidency. I just read a book a couple of months ago about ― it’s this fascinating little story about how in the early 1950s, Harry Truman and Bess Truman got in their car and drove from in his home in Kansas to D.C. and then New York City to see his daughter. In those days, there was no money for a former president. There was no money for their offices ― he paid for his own office out of his own pocket. He paid for his own stamps. There was no permanent security, no secret service. They got in a car and they drove off. They would reach these different little towns and the local police forces would lose their minds that the president had just shown up. We’ve gone from that to President Obama. He’s putting together a billion-dollar library. He budgets for a staff, for around-the-clock secret service ― you know, everything has changed, and it’s just a fascinating world that we were really excited to jump into ― because no one had really explored it as an area. And, Selina Meyer, former president of the United States, just sounded funny. I know in the past, consultants have been a useful source of information [for “Veep” writers and actors]. Has that become less of a resource as you guys have got the idea of what’s going on in Washington, or have you ― No, we’re constantly reaching out to them on specific issues and things. One of our consultants is a wonderful woman who has been on the show longer than I have named Anita McBride, who worked for both Bushes. She had her own stories but also put us in contact with other people from the [George H. W.] Bush presidency. What people forget about that and I’m happy to remind them is Bush ― they didn’t think they were going to lose to Clinton [in 1992]. When they lost, they were shocked. Obviously, it’s not the same as only serving a year [as Selina Meyer does in “Veep”], but there were some comparisons to be made with Selina in terms of the shock of being kicked out and not being prepared for it ― in terms of some of the staff having a hard time finding new jobs because they were partially being blamed for his loss. That [tidbit] was an amazing thing that came out through the consultants. We’re constantly inviting interesting people either to our offices for lunch to meet up with who are just giving us pieces. Last summer we had Doug Band, who was one of the key Clinton staffers who helped with the creation of the Clinton Foundation. That was something that we definitely wanted to play around with in our little Selina world. You only have done one previous season, but does the idea of getting outside of the White House and opening up to CBS ― Well, I definitely thought giving people some new places to go would be great for the show. To present new stories and new worlds, especially with the CBS morning show and the Dan story ― the idea of being able to add media, if you will to our quiver, was just a really fantastic thing because obviously so much of the politics and the media are tied together. So it gave us a real chance to play around in the world of those morning shows. The other big thing is the distance really helps with the current Trump presidency. I’m not sure you want to see Trump in the White House doing stupid things and then also Selina in the White House doing stupid things, so the new locations give us perspective and distance in the sort of grand “tragedy plus time equals comedy.” Well, tragedy plus distance equals comedy, [too]. There are a lot of easy jokes to make about Washington. But in my opinion, the show is at its best when it doesn’t go for the easy joke and it goes at something [more complex], like how feminism is perceived these days. When it comes to our our take on D.C., we sort of pride ourselves on having a very twisted take. We definitely do a lot about feminism and women’s issues, but we come at it from this really interesting perspective. Selina Meyer, in some ways, is the most misogynistic character on television. She hates women more than most men do, so it gives us a very unique angle on women’s issues.  What gets you excited about where this show can go from here? The world of the former presidency is really rich, and I think the quest for redemption is rich. Even in his later days, Richard Nixon found a certain amount of redemption, at least in foreign policy or in being invited back to the White House, and so there’s just a lot of room to see what can happen to not just these characters, but to Selina specifically.  Even watching Bill Clinton speaking at the convention during Obama’s second convention, where Clinton kind of returned triumphantly to become the chief explainer ― it’s fascinating to see the hunger that these political animals have to be back on the stage. And that’s so true of Selina.  Before you go, I feel I am unfortunately legally required to ask you a couple Trump-related questions. For a while there was a meme about throwing the “Curb Your Enthusiasm” music on ―  And now it’s the “Veep” music. I love it. It’s weird to see. It’s funny to see. It makes me just so glad though that we’re kind of coming at it from a different way. There’s no scene of Mike McLintock that I could write doing a press conference that’s funnier than Sean Spicer apologizing about his Hitler references, you know what I mean? So I’m so glad that this season doesn’t have Mike at the podium. I laugh at it. I enjoy it, and then I thank my lucky stars because if she had won the presidency, if she was still in the Oval, I’m just wondering if we would have had to just throw a lot of things in the garbage ― just because they would have been too close and yet seemed old and stale. Final question: Are we ever going to get to find out if Selina Meyer is a Democrat or a Republican? Never. That’s the one spoiler I will give away. It just doesn’t matter. For Selina Meyer, it’s not about the party ― it’s about the power. Obviously this doesn’t happen as much in modern times, I guess, other than Jared Kushner, but if Selina Meyer had to switch parties six different times to win, she’d do that.

Your Fave Comedians Are Helping To Raise Money To Fight Trump's Policies

“I’m going to venture a guess: For the past two months, the news out of Washington has left you scowling — and maybe even growling — more than laughing,” Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) president Rhea Suh recently wrote to supporters of the environment-focused non-profit she heads. “Well, we have something that might help.”  Suh just announced the lineup of comedians who will be featured at the group’s April 25 event, “Stand Up! for the Planet: An Evening of Comedy Benefiting NRDC’s Litigation Fund.” This night of comedy will take place in Los Angeles and raise money for legal battles against Donald Trump’s administration concerning his climate change agenda (or lack thereof). The comedians announced so far are Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Larry David, Martin Short, Tig Notaro, Jerrod Carmichael, JB Smoove, Tony Hale and Pete Davidson.  “I am honored to be a part of such an amazing cause, especially during this critical time for NRDC,” Louis-Dreyfus told the Los Angeles Times. “Now more than ever, it’s important for us to join together and push back against the threats the new administration already poses to decades of environmental progress.” Comedian Larry David memorably shouted “Trump’s a racist!” during the then-presidential candidate’s opening monologue at “Saturday Night Live” in 2015. He also told The New York Times before the election that thinking about Trump winning the presidency was “like contemplating your own death.” But as Trump’s presidency is now a reality, the fate of the world may actually need saving by unlikely supergroups such as the NRDC, teamed with a few of Earth’s best comedians. David would certainly be an intriguing Captain Planet. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Sean Spicer's Holocaust Claim Fits Seamlessly Into Bumbling 'Veep' Credits

While politicians on “Veep” fail their way through each episode, viewers can always expect the ending credits to highlight additional buffoonery with sundry clips of Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and her cohort. On Tuesday, real-life White House press secretary Sean Spicer made a comment that seemed ripped from the HBO political satire when he told reporters that German dictator Adolf Hitler “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.” While attempting to compare Syrian President Bashar Assad’s use of sarin gas to Hitler’s actions, Spicer implied the Nazis did not kill millions of Jews in gas chambers. (They did.)  Now a YouTube user has taken one and one, and made two. Spliced with clips from “Veep,” Spicer’s bungled press conference becomes the stuff of comedy legend in the video, posted with impressive speed Tuesday.  “Passover 2017,” an on-screen time stamp reads as a reminder that the weeklong Jewish holiday began Monday, making the gaffe particularly cringeworthy. Spicer walked back his comment after a reporter requested clarification, stating that Hitler “was not using gas on his own people in the same way that Assad is doing” and referencing “Holocaust centers,” evidently meaning gas chambers. As Meyer replies: “A bleh-a bleh-a bleh-a blegh da.” Spicer later apologized on CNN. UPDATE (9 a.m. ET): Emmy winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus approves. This feels like an Emmy winning episode to me.https://t.co/DU4o08Ot2P— Julia Louis-Dreyfus (@OfficialJLD) April 12, 2017 type=type=RelatedArticlesblockTitle=Related... + articlesList=58dfc78ae4b0b3918c83eee9,5808c27be4b0180a36e97ea9,57df6991e4b04a1497b5356c,5758230de4b0ced23ca67362 -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Общество: На Дону обеспечивают производство здоровой еды

На втором Всероссийском форуме продовольственной безопасности, который пройдет 27–28 апреля в Ростове-на-Дону, будет подведена итоговая черта под многолетней дискуссией о том, как будет развиваться российский АПК в XXI веке в условиях, когда американский рынок ГМО стремится поглотить европейские страны. Дон становится традиционной площадкой для апробации новых путей сельского хозяйства. В ходе главной темы форума – «Экологически чистые продукты – основа здоровья нации» – планируется обсудить потенциал отечественной пищевой индустрии в производстве экологичных продуктов питания, вопросы управления качеством пищевой продукции, формирования здорового типа питания населения. Всемирная организация здравоохранения признала, что генетически модифицированные продукты вызывают разные виды аллергии, поскольку «отравленная» еда способна выработать новый вид белка, незнакомый для человека. Это не может не вызывать беспокойства. И если в ходе I Всероссийского форума продовольственной безопасности, который проходил в Ростове-на-Дону в июне 2015 года, представители 38 регионов России, более 3000 участников вместе с Председателем Правительства РФ Дмитрием Медведевым смогли договориться об импортозамещении, то в ходе второго форума ожидается, что будут выработаны главные направления борьбы с ГМО-продуктами, которые окольными путями попадают на российский рынок. В России производство ГМО запрещено с 2016 года – Европа сопротивляется американскому засилью слабо: только Германия вслед за Шотландией, Австрией, Венесуэлой, Польшей, Швейцарией решились запретить производство генетически измененной пищи. В лице России, имеющей мощный продовольственный рынок экологически чистой продукции, европейцы могут найти надежного союзника. Юг страны стал главным продовольственным донором страны, предлагая рынку высокомаржинальную продукцию, выращенную без ГМО, без внесения ядовитых веществ. Только на донских полях собраны в прошлом году 1 613 000 тонн масличных культур, 1 001 000 тонн сахарной свеклы, 725 000 тонн овощей, более 445 000 тонн картофеля. Впервые здесь намолотили в 2016 году рекордный за всю историю урожай – 11,8 млн тонн зерновых, обеспечив России лидерство по экспорту зерна и в этом сельхозгоду (длится с июля 2016 года по июнь 2017 года). «Важный резерв – международные связи. Не случайно областью на последнем питерском форуме было подписано соглашение с Российским экспортным центром. Речь идет о содействии нашим производителям по выходу на зарубежные рынки. Эту дорожку надо протаптывать», – говорит губернатор Ростовской области Василий Голубев. Чтобы вырастить экологически чистую продукцию, нужно иметь кадры и деньги. Господдержка не опаздывала от потребностей села. В прошлом году на поддержку донского села из федерального и областного бюджетов было выделено более 6,5 млрд рублей. Девять тысяч организаций вовремя получили средства на развитие своих агропроектов. Благодаря этому Ростовская область вышла на лидирующие позиции среди других субъектов ЮФО по количеству начинающих фермеров и способна выделить 7,5 млн рублей – наибольший средний размер гранта – на развитие семейных животноводческих ферм. В 2016 году в АПК донского региона поступило инвестиций на сумму порядка 22 млрд рублей. Все это позволяет вовремя запускать в строй новые производства, способные обеспечить продовольственный рынок экологически чистой продукцией. Введен в эксплуатацию репродуктор компании «Белая птица – Ростов» для производства инкубационного яйца бройлера мощностью 175 млн штук в год; производственная мощность комплекса по выращиванию индейки компании «Евродон» увеличена до 67 тыс. тонн мяса; «Луис Дрейфус Коммодитиз Восток» ввело в эксплуатацию терминал по перевалке сельскохозяйственной продукции мощностью до 1,2 млн тонн ежегодно. Область не собирается останавливаться на достигнутом. Амбициозные планы на селе подкреплены реальными делами. На разных стадиях реализации находятся 26 инвестиционных проектов на 161,8 млрд рублей. А посевная площадь сельхозкультур в 2017 году увеличена до 4,5 млн га, площади зерновых – до 3,3 млн га, что составляет больше половины – 57% – от площади пашни. Под урожай 2017 года осенью уже посеяно более 2,4 млн га озимых культур. По мнению экспертов, в Ростовской области изначально правильно распорядились своим земельным фондом. Ольга Назаренко, директор агрохимцентра «Ростовский» считает, что сельхозтоваропроизводители Ростовской области имеют конкурентное преимущество, так как они изначально выращивают свою продукцию, соответствующую экологическим нормативам. «С 1990 года агрохимическая служба приступила к сплошному агроэкологическому обследованию почв сельскохозяйственных угодий на содержание тяжелых металлов, остаточных количеств пестицидов и радионуклидов. Результаты мониторинга показали, что земли сельхозназначения пригодны для возделывания всех культур, а продукция, выращенная на этих полях, гигиенически безопасна, удельная активность радионуклидов в сельскохозяйственной продукции в несколько раз ниже допустимого уровня», – говорит Назаренко.

Someone Threw The 'Veep' Music Over That Awkward Trump Non-Signing, And It's Fantastic

President Donald Trump had an awkward moment on Friday when he left his own big executive order-signing moment without, you know, signing the executive orders.  While Trump tried to leave, the scene quickly took a turn for the chaotic. A reporter tried to ask Trump about one of his tweets from earlier in the day about his former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Vice President Mike Pence rushed over to the commander in chief before grabbing the unsigned executive orders and whisking them away. In a video, people can be heard confirming what they just saw. “So he didn’t sign them?” one man asks. ”He did not sign them,” a woman replies. “He did not sign them,” a third man confirms.  It was a bewildering moment, one that gave BuzzFeed’s Brandon Wall an idea. “Could someone please mash this up to be in the style of a @VeepHBO closing credits scene? PLEASE,” he tweeted. Luckily for him, BuzzFeed’s Jesse McLaren was ready and willing to do just that. And ladies and gentlemen, let me tell you: The video he create is wonderful.  TRUMP MOMENT as @VeepHBO closing credit scene is (Based on @Walldo tweet) pic.twitter.com/aZpKydSbkn— Jesse McLaren (@McJesse) March 31, 2017 HBO’s “Veep” has made its comedic reputation on portraying Washington, D.C., insiders as a little more than a gaggle of bumbling incompetence ― something that they have said has become harder to parody with the rise of Trump. Nevertheless, the cast and crew of the show appeared to be more excited about the video than maybe anyone.  Oh my god this is spot on. https://t.co/kQIseZbgDe— Timothy Simons (@timothycsimons) March 31, 2017 @McJesse @VeepHBO @Walldo this is pretty great— matt walsh (@mrmattwalsh) April 1, 2017 The crossing of the streams https://t.co/LQX5fOADLz— Armando Iannucci (@Aiannucci) April 1, 2017 ”Veep” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus and executive producer David Mandel retweeted the video as well.

Donald Trump's SEC Pick Deleted His Wall Street Bio. Here's What It Said.

Clayton, one of the most powerful attorneys on Wall Street, had worked on everything from the sale of the Atlanta Hawks to Goldman Sachs’ bailout to mortgage fraud settlements with several major financial institutions. But then President Donald Trump nominated Clayton to chair the Securities and Exchange Commission, an agency tasked with policing Wall Street misconduct. Clayton’s bio all but disappeared from the Sullivan & Cromwell site ― trimmed from more than 800 words to less than 30. It’s perfectly legal for a Wall Street lawyer to join the SEC. But Clayton’s relationship with the firm has raised questions about the agency’s ability to crack down on securities fraud. At his confirmation hearing last week, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) noted that government ethics rules would bar Clayton from participating in any enforcement activity against a company that he previously represented as a lawyer ― or any company that chose to be represented by Sullivan & Cromwell in a future dispute with the SEC. The restrictions would last for the first two years of Clayton’s term as SEC chairman. When the agency’s career staffers have investigated misconduct, its leaders ― four commissioners and the chairman ― vote on whether to issue fines or penalties. The commissioners are split evenly between Democrats and Republicans and often vote along partisan lines, resulting in a 2-2 tie, which is broken by the chair. If Clayton is forced to sit out an enforcement decision, the result could be a deadlock that allows fraud to go unpunished. This was a common problem at the agency during the tenure of Obama’s SEC chair, Mary Jo White, who, like Clayton, had previously worked as a prominent corporate attorney. The Senate banking committee is expected to vote next week on whether to advance Clayton’s nomination to the Senate floor. Here is the full text of Clayton’s Sullivan & Cromwell bio before it was all but deleted: Jay Clayton’s practice involves public and private mergers and acquisitions transactions, capital markets offerings, regulatory and enforcement proceedings, and other matters where multidisciplinary advice and experience is valued.

«Казалось, что компания стала нашим четвертым ребенком»

Французские СМИ рисуют образ Маргариты Луи-Дрейфус как загадочной русской, воюющей с именитой бизнес-династией, сироты из Ленинграда, которая вышла замуж за богача и взяла под контроль солидный французский бизнес. Ее путь от торговки печатными платами в СССР до кресла руководителя компании Louis Dreyfus Company (LDC), одного из крупнейших агросырьевых торговых домов мира, без сомнения, весьма примечателен. Но, как утверждает 54-летняя Маргарита Луи-Дрейфус, когда пошли споры с семьей ее покойного мужа, история ее жизни была изрядно искажена СМИ.

Female Presidential Candidate Finds New Purpose After Election Defeat In ‘Veep’ Trailer

And yes, Gary (Tony Hale) is still there by her side.

The Biggest Moment Of Nancy Pelosi's Town Hall Almost Didn't Happen

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s exchange with a college student about capitalism and the Democratic Party’s economic agenda was arguably the most memorable moment of Tuesday night’s CNN town hall with the California congresswoman. But it almost did not take place, because the questioner, New York University sophomore Trevor Hill, had agreed to ask Pelosi a “personal” question at CNN’s behest. His decision not to do so, apparently came as a surprise to CNN, including host Jake Tapper. Hill first heard about the town hall from a friend who had been contacted by a CNN producer, he recalled in an interview with The Huffington Post. He submitted the same question he ended up asking on live television ― almost verbatim. “According to a Harvard University poll last May, 51% of young voters between the ages of 18 and 29 no longer support capitalism. The Democratic Party inarguably failed to inspire young leftists during this election cycle, who voted in overwhelming numbers for the farther left candidate during the presidential primary elections,” Hill wrote in an email to a CNN producer. “What is the Democratic Party going to change going forward in order to capture and inspire the new generations of leftists who feel as though the party is failing to stand up for left wing economic values?” CNN did not accept his submission, according to Hill. “But they seemed interested in my biographical information that I had given them,” Hill said. “So they emailed me back, asked for a picture and stuff. And then they asked me, ‘Oh, do you want to know anything a little more personal about her? Maybe you could submit some extra questions.’” Hill agreed to submit two questions that he characterized as “fluffy.” CNN selected one Hill had drafted based on the HBO comedy series “Veep.” He recalled the question he was supposed to ask: “One of my favorite TV programs is the HBO show ‘Veep.’ In the show, Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ character is subjected to a lot of ridiculous and embarrassing campaign events by her staff that she doesn’t enjoy in order to secure votes. I was wondering if you could relate to us a time when maybe you felt ridiculous or embarrassed on the campaign trail and if there is anyone you would like to call out for putting you in that situation?” Hill decided not to pose the query, however, because he was more interested in whether Pelosi thought Democrats should embrace a more progressive economic platform. “It would have been fun, but it definitely wasn’t what I really wanted to know,” Hill said of the “Veep” question. “And as a former Democrat, I had some stuff that I really did want to know about, like if they were going to make any effort to regain a lot of the voters they lost during the election cycle. So that was what I was more interested in. That’s why I asked my question.” But given the dire circumstances ― I’m so sorry Mr. Tapper ― given the dire circumstances our country is in, I wonder if you would indulge me in a little bit more of a serious question about the future of the Democratic Party. Trevor Hill CNN did not dispute Hill’s version of events. “To ensure we cover a variety of topics, we asked him if he had a personal (non-policy) question he wanted to ask the House Minority Leader,” a CNN spokeswoman said in a statement. “The question he originally submitted and then ultimately asked, was his.” When Hill proceeded to ask Pelosi about whether Democrats planned to accommodate young people who believe in progressive economic policies, it seemed like CNN’s Jake Tapper was caught off guard. “This is what we call in this business a soft landing. And it’s a lighter question from our friend Trevor Hill. He’s a student at NYU, he’s from San Diego,” Tapper said by way of introducing Hill’s question. “Good evening congresswoman. Thank you for being here and thank you for taking my question. I was originally slated to ask a soft question ―” Hill began. “Uh oh,” Tapper interjected. “But given the dire circumstances ― I’m so sorry Mr. Tapper ― given the dire circumstances our country is in, I wonder if you would indulge me in a little bit more of a serious question about the future of the Democratic Party,” Hill continued, before asking his question. Although Pelosi critiqued capitalism in its current form, her response ended up angering many progressives. Pelosi’s critics were particularly peeved that she did not address whether Democrats are interested in taking the party in a more populist economic direction or otherwise offer proposals for remedying the flaws in capitalism she enumerated. In some cases, they also lamented what they regarded as her naive and paternalistic view of past business tycoons’ generosity, including an unnamed former chairman of the now-shuttered 20th century multinational Standard Oil of New Jersey. The exchange became something of a metaphor for the larger struggle for the Democratic Party’s soul taking place between its leaders and its younger, more progressive voting base. Hill’s personal story only heightened the political significance of his dialogue with the House minority leader. He told HuffPost that he abandoned the party when he felt its leaders’ sunny assessments of the economy were out of sync with his family’s financial suffering. Unable to pay their bills, his parents declared bankruptcy three years ago. HuffPost asked Pelosi’s office on Thursday if she had anything to add to her Tuesday night response, such as addressing Hill’s query about whether Democrats would embrace economic populism going forward. “Leader Pelosi’s statement was an indictment of shareholder capitalism and how it’s falling short,” Drew Hammill, a spokesman for Pelosi, responded in a statement. “We hope that Mr. Hill and other young people interested in economic inequality would join efforts in each of their states to fight for a living wage as Leader Pelosi leads the fight for one at the national level.” Below is a complete transcript of Hill’s conversation with Pelosi: JAKE TAPPER: This is what we call in this business a soft landing. And it’s a lighter question from our friend Trevor Hill. He’s a student at NYU, he’s from San Diego. TREVOR Hill: Good evening congresswoman. Thank you for being here and thank you for taking my question. I was originally slated to ask a soft question― TAPPER: Uh oh. HILL: But given the dire circumstances ― I’m so sorry Mr. Tapper ― but given the dire circumstances our country is in, I wonder if you would indulge me in a little bit more of a serious question about the future of the Democratic Party. What I’ve seen on NYU’s campus and what I’ve seen in polls all over, in CNN even, a Harvard University poll last May showed that people between the ages of 18 and 29 ― not just Democrats, not just leftists ― 51 percent of people between 18 and 29 no longer support the system of capitalism. That’s not me asking you to make a radical statement about capitalism but I’m just telling you that my experience is the younger generation is moving left on economic issues. And I’ve been so excited to see Democrats move left on social issues. As a gay man, I’ve been very proud to see you fighting for our rights and many Democratic leaders fighting for our rights. But I wonder if there’s anywhere you feel the Democrats could move farther left to a more populist message, the way the alt-right has sort of captured this populist strain on the right wing ― if you think we could make a more stark contrast to right-wing economics? NANCY PELOSI: I thank you for your question. But I have to say, we’re capitalist and that’s just the way it is. However, we do think that capitalism is not necessarily meeting the needs with the income inequality that we have in our country. And let me just tell you this ― I don’t know how much time we have ― about 40 years ago, no less a person in terms of capitalism than the chairman of the Standard Oil of New Jersey said ― that he talked about stakeholder capitalism. Capitalism that said when we make decisions as managements and CEOs of the country, we take into consideration our shareholders, our management, our workers, our customers and the community at large. At that time, the disparity between the CEO and the worker was about 40 times ― 40 times more for the CEO than the worker. As productivity rose, the pay of the worker rose, and the pay of the CEO rose. Everything rose together. Around 20 years ago it started to turn into ― maybe 15 ― 20 years ago it started to turn into shareholder capitalism where we’re strictly talking about the quarterly report. So a CEO would make much more money by keeping pay low even though productivity is rising. The worker’s not getting more pay and the CEO is getting a big pay because he’s kept costs low by depriving workers of their share of the productivity that they created. And as I call it. a right angle going in the wrong direction. The disparity between the CEO and the worker under the shareholder capitalism is more like 350 to 400 to 1 ― from 40 to 1 to 350 to 400 to 1. That income inequality is an immorality and it is not even smart from an economic standpoint, because it doesn’t grow the economy. The more money you put in the pocket of the worker for the productivity he or she has produced, the more money they will spend, consume with confidence, inject into the economy and grow the economy. So what you talked about and what you talked about are the same thing. The stagnation of wages and the financial instability that families are feeling tied with with seeing priorities that are not necessarily ones that they have ― well, they care about it but it’s not a job, and being able to have a home home and send your children to school and have a dignified retirement are what we want for all Americans. And capitalism should serve that purpose. The capitalist system has been well served by the so-called safety net. It’s not just a safety net for individual workers. It’s a safety net for capitalism. Because they can go through their cycles, and we have unemployment insurance or all kinds of benefits as a safety yet that enable them to go through cycles. But instead ― and there’s some enlightened corporations which say, ‘I’m keeping my whole staff through thick and thin. At the end of the day, I have a productive, trained, loyal work force.’ So we have to change the thinking of people. I don’t think we have to change from capitalism. We’re a capitalist system. The free market is a place that can do good things. Actually, Adam Smith ― Wealth of Nations, the invisible hand ― he was more compassionate. He wrote two books. His other book was about our responsibilities to each other, as well as Wealth of Nations. I wish he had written one book where he incorporated all of it together. I hear what you’re saying about young people. And may I say we have our Eric Swalwell, heads up something called our Future Forum, where young members of congress in their 30s, late 20s ― I think they’re all, some of them have graduated to 30s now ― go around the country and listen to young people. Perhaps he can visit you at school as well. But thank you for sharing. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
