Welcome to each party from the HBO real time the film to make this a little breeze. Gotta give to Us- and I can say John: how do you think today's mainstream media would treat Abraham Lincoln if he was our current president ivy? It's great question like his his media hated him. He was disrespected widely. I dont think you probably would have been elected right now. He told a lotta jokes that were deeply inappropriate. People got pissed half of them, but that was a tool right. He spoken parables. He was trying to reach people where they work. Ito Lincoln was a huge consumer of media. He was obsessed with newspapers, but he got a lot of grief and we forget that in it we forget how much Bianti people hated Lincoln at the time he did the difficult things.
And we could still learn how blood at all with the six four in in that year. That must almost right during a seven footer. Yet right anyway, anymore.

They were more worried about renaming schools, then making sure that the children returned back to in person learning, and so I think parents and residents of San Francisco of said, look the these. These radical extreme ideas are are not going to work for us anyway,

Is what your bills to creating a generation of how we Mandela a blue, germ paranoid. Munchkins it just its is it? Is it we're dick? It's it's been like it's a huge chunk of their lives. I mean we ve got young kids I witnessed, especially when they are young. I mean that's the first thing they remember and it's gonna get imprinted on them and it's just a mean. Kids.

Is we ve been take? Giving the vaccine debates are so incredibly done, because we ve been doing mandatory vaccines for public school kids forever for polio. This is not any difference, just what we need to deal with.
