Lincoln Project’s Steve Schmidt “There’s a Battle for Control of MAGA Empire” | Amanpour and Company
California Governor Gavin Newsom easily beat a recall challenge last night, in part by emphasizing his commitment to mask and vaccine mandates. This Desantis fiction is in stark contrast to the approach of Republican governors in states like Texas and Florida. Former GOP strategist Steve Schmidt dismisses their anti-science stance as a ploy to woo the far right. Schmidt, who resigned from the board of The Lincoln Project in February, tells Michel Martin how Democrats should seize the moment—originally aired on September 15, 2021.

Pro-Trump Politician Arrested By FBI
68 arrests made after pro-Trump mob storms US Capitol building
We have a unique opportunity during shut-in, shut down to observe and analyze our current leaders, up close under crisis. How do our gubernatorial, congressional, Chief Executive Officer (President) leaders handle crisis management? Do they manage with urgency, command, and control or confusion and apathy? This devastating pandemic provides us an interesting opportunity for contrast and compare between distinct styles of leadership, Governor Andrew Cuomo and President Donald J. Trump.
So many of us, on all sides of the political divide (see divide and conquer), have gravitated to the alpha male confident, command, and control crisis handling style of workaholic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. Remember Governor and chief is in the Cuomo D.N.A.
Perhaps some are drawn to this article after awakening to how our leaders serve the American Public. Do we want leaders with practical solutions with immediate benefit to us and the streets where we live or ones with 10 word answers for complex and complicated problems.
Some leaders find themselves in direct conflict with their own words from daily debriefs.
Steve Schmidt: We Are ‘One Election Away… From Losing Our Democracy’ | Deadline | MSNBC.
An unexpected pleasure of pandemic safe distancing protocol is we viewers now get a full array of background options for our favorite news personalities. Steve Schmidt is the most background fluid. This tells me he has a flexible production crew in his own person or a very light, nimble tech production team. Occam’s Razor tells the majority a different story: he has watched the rest and discovered the best is to switch up the background if you broadcast from home (see any and all during a pandemic) ..Notice Steve rarely consecutively broadcasts his featured spots from the same room in what we assume is his personal home. Most news experts have one room for data, work, and the occasional Zoom broadcast call with CNN/MSNBC. Steve’s voice is much-needed gravity and gravitas in this Era of the strange and chaotic. Steve’s strong moral compass, almost the voice of Moses, is pitch-perfect adding considerable value to any discussion about our current state of disarray. But has anyone, like me, noticed Steve has a Uber masculine home that features contemporary lines and one very Norwegian chic center block kitchen? Does this kitchen scream out for a great party and awesome vegan savory chimichanga? Anyone else thinking with me on this one? In a not so distant former life I would argue for a Pork Center Loin with the aformentioned marinade (the hours in fridge prior to grilling with indirect on my Weber Grill).
