Mika Brzezinski: I Think Mike Bloomberg Would Govern Well


>>Stephen: WELCOME BACK,
EVERYBODY, WITH OUR FRIENDS JOE SCARBOROUGH AND AUTHOR OF
“COMEBACK CAREERS,” MIKA BRZEZINSKI. WE’LL GET TO THAT IN A MOMENT
THE LAST TIME YOUR OPINION HERE YOU SAID YOUR FRONTRUNNERS WERE
BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS. KAMALA IS OUT, BIDEN HASN’T
PERFORMED HOW WE THOUGHT HE WOULD.>>HE PERFORMED PERFECTLY.>>Stephen: SHE ME. HOW ME THE DATA WHERE HE’S
LOSING AND IS NOT THE FRONTRUNNER.>>Stephen: NATIONALLY HE’S
STILL LEADING.>>OKAY.>>Stephen: IT’S NOT A
NATIONAL RACE, THOUGH, YOU HAVE TO WIN IN THE INDIVIDUAL PRIMARY
AND CAUCUSES.>>HE WAS HAVING TROUBLE
COMPLETING SENTENCE FOR A WHILE, THERE, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.>>Stephen: WHAT ABOUT THE
FOOTAGE RELEASED BY BERNIE’S CAMPAIGN SHOWING BIDEN
SUPPORTING THE PRESIDENT SIX MONTHS AFTER THE INVASION OF
IRAQ WHEN WE ALREADY HAD A SENSE AT THAT POINT THAT PERHAPS THIS
WAS A MISTAKE?>>HERE’S THE THING ABOUT JOE
BIDEN H. E!’s LIKE TRUMP. HE’S TEFLON. DOESN’T MATTER HOW HE DOES IN
DEBATES OR WHAT CLIPS YOU BRING UP ABOUT THE GUY, HE KEEPS ON
KEEPING ON.>>HE’S NOT LIKE TRUMP.>>Stephen: HE JUST SAID
THERE’S NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TRUMP AND BIDEN.>>HE’S TEFLON, MAN. HE CAN CALL SOMEBODY FAT, HE CAN
CHALLENGE THEM TO PUSHUPS, HE’S TONE THIS, BY THE WAY.>>HE’S A WONDERFUL MAN.>>Stephen: WE’VE TALKED ABOUT
IT. WE HAVE A DEBATE TOMORROW NIGHT. LIVE AFTERWARDS WITH BLOOMBERG. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF MAYOR MIKE?>>I THINK THIS IS FASCINATING. YOU LOOK AT THE COMMERCIALS HE’S
RUNNING, THE ADS, THEY’RE INCREDIBLE.>>Stephen: WHAT’S INCREDIBLE
ABOUT THEM?>>THEY’RE POWERFUL. THEY’RE POWERFUL. I’LL BACK IT UP WITH STATUS. HOW SIT THAT HE’S EVEN RATING IN
THE POLLS WHEN HE JUST JUMPED IN>>Stephen: HE’S A
BILLIONAIRE! THAT’S HOW HE RATED IN THE
POLLS.>>THAT POSES PROBLEMS.>>Stephen: WHAT? ARE WE GOING TO HAVE A
CANDIDATE THAT’S GOING TO JUMP IN AND BUY THE ELECTION? THAT’S AN ISSUE.>>Stephen: I AGREE. I DON’T NECESSARILY WANT TO SIT
AROUND AND HOPE THAT THE NEXT BILLIONAIRE IS A GOOD ONE. I WANT TO LIKE THE GUY FOR SOME
OTHER REASON.>>I THINK HE WOULD GOVERN WELL.>>Stephen: SEEMS LIKE A
TECHNOCRAT.>>YES.>>Stephen: IS HE A GOOD GUY,
A GOOD MAN?>>YES.>>Stephen: I DON’T KNOW. OH, COME ON.>>Stephen: I GUESS HE IS! I MEAN, WE DON’T GOLF TOGETHER,
WE DON’T TAKE SPANISH LESSONS TOGETHER.>>Stephen: THAT’S HOW YOU
FIND OUT IF SOMEBODY’S A GOOD MAN BY GOLFING WITH THEM? ( LAUGHTER )
I CAN’T HAVE HIM ON AND SAY TOMORROW ARE YOU A GOOD MAN?>>YES, YOU CAN.>>Stephen: HOW DO YOU ASK
THAT?>>YOU ASK HIM, HOW DO PEOPLE
REALLY GET TO KNOW YOU? WHAT’S THE HUMAN SIDE OF YOU? WE’VE SEEN YOUR ADS AND NUMBERS,
YOU’VE GOT TONS OF MONEY, THAT BOTHERS TRUMP, WEREICH THAT,
THAT’S GOING TO BE FUN TO WATCH, BUT WHO ARE YOU?>>Stephen: ASK HIM ABOUT HIM,
RIGHT?>>YES. ASK HIM ABOUT HIM. CAN I BE CLEAR? I LIKE MICHAEL BLOOMBERG A LOT. ASK HIM TOMORROW NIGHT IF HE’LL
GIVE ME SOME MONEY. I NEED SOME MONEY.>>YES. ( LAUGHTER )
>>Stephen: MIKA. YES.>>Stephen: IF WE’RE DONE WITH
JOE, I’D LIKE TO GET TO YOUR BOOK.>>WE’RE NOT DONE WITH HIM,
NEVER!>>Stephen: YOU HAVE A NEW
STORY CALLED “COMEBACK CAREERS.”>>YES.>>Stephen: WHAT’S A COME BACK
CAREER?>>A COMEBACK CAREER IS IF
YOU’RE TAKING A BREAK, OVER 40, 50 OR BEYOND, YOU WANT TO CHANGE
CAREERS, COME BACK AFTER TAKING A BREAK OR YOU’RE FEELING
MARGINALIZED, THIS IS A BOOK TO GUIDE YOU THROUGH THOSE YEARS
BECAUSE WOMEN IN THIS SPACE, THEY HAVE SO MUCH VALUE, THEY
HAVE SO MUCH TO OFFER. WE HAVE INCREDIBLE WOMEN WORKING
WELL INTO 70s AND EIGHTS, LOOK AT NANCY PELOSI AT 79 IMPEACHING
A PRESIDENT. SHE’S AMAZING. ( APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: JANE FONDA. OH, MY GOD. BUT THE WOMAN WHO STARTED ORANGE
THEORY, ELLEN LATHAM AT 54 STARTING THIS INCREDIBLE SPORTS
COMPLEX.>>Stephen: AND WHO’S THIS
NICE PERSON ON THE COVER.>>THAT’S MY SISTER-IN-LAW, WHO
I BELIEVE IS IN YOUR AUDIENCE.>>Stephen: ARE YOU HERE? I DON’T KNOW. OH, WAY UP THERE. HI, JENNY!>>Stephen: LOVELY. IT’S A REALLY IMPORTANT
GUIDEBOOK FOR WOMEN, ESPECIALLY OVER 50, WHO WANT TO GET BACK IN
ANDT NOT ONLY WANT THE SKILLS TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT, ALL THE
TECHNIQUES, INTERVIEWING SKILLS, RESUME STUFF, BUT ALSO THE
INSPIRATION TO STOP PUTTING WALLS UP AND BE SORT OF
PARALYZED BY FEAR BECAUSE WOMEN FEEL JUDGED IN THIS SPACE FOR
THEIR AGE OR THE CHOICES THEY’VE MADE, SO THAT’S WHY I WROTE THE
BOOK.>>Stephen: BOTH OF YOU ARE
SOMEWHERE OVER 40.>>I’M 52.>>Stephen: OKAY. SO YOU GUYS ARE IN THIS RANGE. WHAT’S YOUR COMEBACK CAREER,
JOE?>>HE’S GOING TO BE A ROCK STAR
IS THAT NO, HE’S NOT ( LAUGHTER )
SNOW, HE’S NOT.>>YOU COMING TO PROHIBITION?>>Stephen: WHAT’S THAT? HE’S GOING TO PERFORM AT O
PROHIBITION. WILL YOU COME WITH ME?>>Stephen: I HAVE TO HAVE MY
SHOES ROTATED. I WON’T BE ABLE TO MAKE IT. MIKA, WHAT’S YOUR COMEBACK?>>MY SIDE HUSTLE.>>Stephen: WHAT’S THAT? KNOW YOUR VALUE. I TRAVEL AROUND THE COUNTRY,
HOLD EVENTS, TO HELP WOMEN KNOW THEIR VALUE AND COMMUNICATE IT
EFFECTIVELY. KNOW YOUR VALUE FOR YOUNGER
WOMEN AND “COMEBACK CAREERS” IS FOR OLDER WOMEN
>>STEPHEN: “COMEBACK CAREERS” IS AVAILABLE TOMORROW. JOE SCARBOROUGH AND MIKA
BRZEZINSKI, EVERYBODY! WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH A
PERFORMANCE FROM “TINA: THE TINA TURNER MUSICAL.”
