8:00 pm
mark: with all due respect to the media, the next four years will be a marathon, not a sprint. >> awkward. >> we are watching donald trump's plane. >> we are watching the motorcade pull into the white house. >> meetings were going on for a lengthy amount of time. >> this meeting was close to an hour and a half. >> to be a fly on the wall. >> fly on the wall. >> even if we could interview said fly on said wall, fly would not be able to talk. ♪
8:01 pm
mark: on the show tonight, donald trump prepares to be president, and the nation prepares for president trump. some of the country's still shellshocked by the surprise victory, but today the idea of donald trump in the white house got a lot more real. his visit with the current occupant of 1600 pennsylvania avenue was as stunning as it was symbolic. trump sat with president obama for a 90 minute conversation, the first time the boat had met face-to-face. it comes after president obama said trump cannot be trusted with the nuclear codes. afterward, the two set side-by-side for the extraordinary oval office photo up. here is that moment. pres. obama: i just had a conversation with
8:02 pm
president-elect trump. it was wide-ranging. we talked about some of the organizational issues setting up the white house. we talked about foreign policy. i want to emphasize to you this president-elect, we want to do everything we can to help you succeed, because if you succeed, then the country succeeds. mr. trump: we had never met each other. i have great respect. the meeting lasted almost an hour and a half, and it could have gone on for a lot longer. we discussed a lot of different situations, some wonderful and some difficulties. i look forward to dealing with the president in the future, including counsel.
8:03 pm
he explained some of the difficulties, some of the highflying assets, and some of the really great things that have been achieved. mr. president, it was a great honor meeting with you, and i look forward to being with you many more times. mark: michelle obama also met with the future first lady, melania trump, and vice president mike pence sitting down with vice president joe biden. later today, trump was heading back to new york city. john, an extraordinary moment. i wonder what you think of the obama-trump relationship. john: oh, to be a fly on the wall. mark: or to interview that fly. john: either one. i thought that it was the strangest thing. we were down there in washington today, one of many strange things that have happened, and surreal to watch, knowing the history of the two of them. knowing how much -- all the
8:04 pm
things president obama has said about donald trump, all the things donald trump has said about barack obama. i am impressed over the course of eight years with the extent that barack obama is genuinely committed to preserving democratic norms in this country, and his handling of this meeting, i know we can talk about trump's handling too, but we will focus on the president. his handling of the meeting is a testament of how much he cares and takes seriously that the transfer of power should not just be peaceful, but should be placid and smooth. a lot of things about donald trump he does not like, but he is now the president-elect and should be rooting for donald trump's success. mark: it is a requirement to the office, but he handled it in a way that was extraordinary dignified and unifying.
8:05 pm
donald trump has candidate said, as president on not going to do all this stuff that's a little bit out there. as president, i'm not going to tweet in a crazy way, not going to lash out. you would not recognize donald trump, if you cover the campaign, the way he behaved today. for those wondering if he is a different guy in the office, it's one data point, but he was low-key, dignified, praised the president's record, said he would ask the president for advice. in a campaign that has been extraordinarily abnormal throughout, how they acted was like every other meeting we have seen. john: i think that one of the things that happened when we become president, and we hear about this in the context of when you first start getting the real security briefing and how that changes you. mark: you are in the club. john: right. you are like, i said a lot of stuff on the campaign trail, but now i know what's really going on, what our agents in the old
8:06 pm
-- in the field are confronting, and that changes you. i think sitting in that chair is another thing that changes you, not at the core of who you are, because donald trump is still donald trump. barack obama is still barack obama. that is a moment where the weight and gravity has hit you full force. mark: if you had seen that photo, you would say, well, looks good. john: if jeb bush were president-elect, a similar meeting with have taken place. after trump left today, he spent time with two republicans who, despite the public into relationships with trump over the past months, will be vitally important to executing a legislative agenda. first, house speaker paul ryan.
8:07 pm
mr. trump: i think we will do spectacular things for the american people. we can't get started soon enough. john: after that meeting, ryan gave a tour of the balcony a much donald trump will be sworn in january. after a meeting with mitch mcconnell, trump told leaders, quote, we are going to work very strongly on immigration, health care, and we are looking at jobs, big league jobs. mark, apart from the fact that he did not say big league and said bigly, what do you make of the optics and the meetings up on capitol hill? mark: the optics and the way that hill leaders are bending to
8:08 pm
the reality of the president bodes well for repairing relationships, particularly between ryan and donald trump. will this be a populist party or an establishment party? the agendas of the populist president-elect and the establishmentarian congressional leaders and underclass, it -- and donor class, it will be fascinating to see. i hate to use the phrase when the rubber hits the road, but it will be fascinating to see. so far, the relationship with the hill stuff seems good. john: you think about health care. on the basis of what we know about donald trump, he is a lot more liberal on health care than paul ryan or mitch mcconnell. they will repeal the affordable care act, but there's got to be a replacement for it. what's the replacement? paul ryan's vision is very market centric, and donald trump at one point was a backer of single-payer. where did they meet on that question? immigration, another question obviously key. one of the places trump has the
8:09 pm
most clearly enunciated set of policies, but they are not the policies paul ryan would implement. where are they going to end up? mark: just take health care, 1/7 of the american economy. president elect trump start his stump speech saying, we are going to get rid of the affordable care act. clinton's camp wanted stability. there is a lot to figure out. even as president obama oversees -- calls for national unity and a peaceful transition of power, there are thousands protesting. out industries. last night, there were massive demonstrations erupting on the streets of at least 10 american cities, including l.a. and boston, as protesters chanted
8:10 pm
anti-trump slogans. in gotham city, thousands marched to trump tower to express their discontent. those demonstrations picked up today in san francisco and elsewhere. we sent our team out to ask the protesters in new york what they hope to achieve. >> what are you hoping to come out of this rally? >> solidarity. >> that in a democracy, we get our opinions to count. >> i'm hoping that with social media, things like this will help the world see that we do not want this president. this is not our president. >> i am hoping for people to see that people are upset about his policies, about what he wants to do to this country, and will get up and join us. >> i am very upset. today we are coming together in an expression of rage. >> i hope that he gets impeached, to be honest. >> we want people to do everything they can in the next quarter years to stop the harm that is going to happen.
8:11 pm
i don't know what to do other than make my voice heard and make people know this is not what we want. mark: today, with the democratic party facing a lot of problems, it is reported that howard dean is now seriously considering a run to get back his former job as democratic party chairman. john, is this kind of a falling action from a party that just suffered a surprising loss, or are we going to see protests continue and the dnc chair position is kind of an initial proxy fight for finding a new direction? john: i think clearly, protests of this kind will happen for a period of time. as long as they are peaceful, they are fine. people should be allowed to march and express discontent with what happened.
8:12 pm
i think in a funny way, these protests contend more for the democratic party than the republican, because there is going to be a large core of the democratic base that is not going to want to see democrats making deals with donald trump. they want the democratic party to be a party of resistance. they will have to contend with this for at least the first year of donald trump. mark: there is the issue of what to do to confront donald trump's agenda. there is also the issue of what to do to rebuild the democratic already. they have been decimated in congress. when howard dean was chair, he was to the left. he called himself the democratic wing of the democratic party. he is now to the right of elizabeth warren and bernie sanders. i will say one more thing. if it is someone like a haley barbour, it could be the most prominent spokesperson the party has. the fight for that job is a big deal. john: when we come back, we will talk to white house press
8:13 pm
secretary josh earnest, right after this. ♪
8:14 pm
8:15 pm
john: welcome back. all eyes are on washington dc today as trump begins his transition to 1600 pennsylvania avenue. joining us now is white house press secretary josh earnest. great to see you. sorry we cannot say hi when we were there today. mr. earnest: i'm sorry i missed you. john: you are the closest thing to a fly on the wall. give us your readout of the meeting. mr. earnest: the president described it as a positive, productive meeting, and the
8:16 pm
reason is that from the president-elect in private, while you guys heard from the president-elect in public. he stuck a constructive tone, a tone that demonstrated his commitment to a peaceful transition of power. this administration has been preparing for months for this transition. president is committed to making sure the next president can hit the ground running. i don't think he expected he expected he would be working with trump's team, but that's who he is working with. mark: josh, you said something that surprised me. you were asked about president obama's comments about donald trump being unqualified. rather than saying what i expected you to say, the campaign is over, we are moving forward, you said yeah, he basically still thinks that. mr. earnest: i don't want people to be left with the impression that that was somehow empty rhetoric and the president did
8:17 pm
not believe it. the president was making a forceful case in support of secretary clinton, who is his preferred candidate. it did not work out, and elections have consequences. i know that shortly after he took office, president obama was quoted by a number of republicans as arrogant and pompous. elections do have consequences, and the president is committed to ensuring a peaceful transition. it does not means his concerns no longer apply. of course they do. but the time for the argument has passed, the american people have decided, and elections have consequences. john: i will ask you a question. try to answer this the best you can in a human way. it grows out of mark's question. we get a lot of criticism, but what president obama said about donald trump repeatedly is that
8:18 pm
he was unfit to be given the nuclear codes. now he is sitting across from him effectively saying, i'm going to have to hand you the nuclear codes. in his mind, how does president obama resolved that conundrum and feel ok with it? i understand he is committed to a peaceful transition of power and respects democratic norms, but what is he thinking in that moment? mr. earnest: he is thinking that he has the responsibility that every president does, which is to put aside his own deeply held political views and put the interests of the country and our democracy first. the good news is that he is not the first president who has had to do that. the last two presidents have had to do that. president clinton, after serving for eight years, had to hand the keys to the oval office to president-elect george w. bush, who had basically run around the
8:19 pm
country promising to restore integrity, a not so implicit criticism of president clinton, but president clinton tried to fulfill his responsibilities. president obama on the campaign trail was harshly critical of the previous administration, but president bush did not allow his personal disagreements with president-elect obama to affect his ability to preside over a very successful transition. president obama is committed to doing the same thing. yes, that does require him to set aside his personal views. but when it comes to the functioning of our democracy, even the president of the united states has to set aside his personal views to ensure the success. mark: you will be signing a giant network tv political analyst contract, i assume it. let's audition now. why did hillary clinton lose? mr. earnest: i think it's going to take a while to figure that out precisely. mark: let's take your first
8:20 pm
blush at it. when you are a political analyst for a cable network, you don't have time to punch. mr. earnest: this is very effective training, so i appreciate the opportunity to practice. mark: quickly. mr. earnest: there a couple of variables. first, secretary clinton will not grow the popular vote. it is important to not overlook that view. it is easy to say she got be badly. she lost the electoral vote, but we would be remiss if we did not acknowledge she got more votes than the other guys. mark: i think you will be from the lewandowski school and not the axelrod school. mr. earnest: i'm not in the new job yet. i'm sticking with mild job. one job at a time. the second thing is there are people across the country who voted for barack obama in 2008 and 2012 and then voted for donald trump. mark: why didn't those people vote for hillary clinton? mr. earnest: i don't know. considering how president obama weighed in at how popular he is across the country, not just with his longtime supporters,
8:21 pm
but with republicans and independents as well, comparatively, given the polarized nature of our country. there clearly are people across the country who are fed up with dysfunction and washington, d.c., and as much as i believe that that dysfunction should be laid at the feet of those in congress who refuse to do anything with barack obama even when he was trying to promote ideas that they had originated, clearly there were a lot of people across the country who laid that dysfunction at the feet of democrats, including the president. i think that is part of the answer too, what do we do to more effectively communicate with those voters who i think unfairly held democrats in washington, including barack obama, responsible for some of that dysfunction? i don't think they should have, but it raises questions about what democrats are doing to make a persuasive argument for those
8:22 pm
people who voted for barack obama twice and for some reason voted for donald trump. john: that was pretty good when it comes to cable analysis. mr. earnest: i've got some work to do. john: you will need to be a little bit pithier. a pleasure to see you. up next, we will take a quick editorial drive down the road to the capital building, where donald trump met with leaders. ♪
8:23 pm
8:24 pm
8:25 pm
mark: as was said earlier, donald trump went to capitol hill for a meeting at the white house -- after a meeting at the white house. kelly, just tell us about the sights and sounds of what happened, and what was happening behind the scenes as far as you know. kelly: it was striking, because i think donald trump not a lot of experience with dealing with these inner offices of capitol hill. i was here during the campaign season when he was part of a big anti-iran deal protest, and he got to go inside the capitol, but today felt so different. he carried himself in a way that seemed a bit more restrained, a bit more lower volume trump, aware of the enormity of what he is involved in. he met off-campus near the capitol. that was a chance to have lunch and continue a conversation by telephone. then it was paul ryan inviting donald trump and melania trump
8:26 pm
to see the view they will have on inauguration day from the speaker's balcony. that is a spectacular view and that is a rare place to go. that was a bit more of the tour is inside. and then he also -- tourism side. and that he also had a meeting with leader mitch mcconnell. as he was walking out of that, i said, mr. trump, are you ready to be president? he said, we are ready, and he gave me the double thumbs-up. he mentioned immigration and jobs, and he spoke for just a couple of minutes. it was the cacophany of a media day with shutters going off, bouncing off the marble here in the capitol. majority leader mitch mcconnell then escorted trump out and spoke with us for a moment, a rarity, saying it was a first class meeting and they are ready to get on the transition with areas where they agree.
8:27 pm
with ryan and mcconnell, it is about trying to plan with a new republican partner, and they have a lot more experience than he does. mark: did anything happen that, even reading between the lines, you would say maybe there is trouble? kelly: not today. i think today was really about trying to project confidence, trying to be gracious. in washington, it won't take long for the disagreements and trouble spots to filter out. but today was on a tour sort of scale. mark: thank you. we will talk with a democratic pollster about what happened on election night. you are going to want to see this. back in a moment. ♪
8:28 pm
8:29 pm
john: there is an anti-trump protests underway on the streets of philadelphia. you can see it on your screen. nearly 48 hours since the
8:30 pm
stunning defeat that caused protests like this. in spite of the concessions speech yesterday, we have heard very little from democratic strategists about what happened and what went so very wrong. our next guest may be able to answer those questions. jefrey is a democratic pollster which worked with the pro-clinton super pac priorities usa this cycle. jeff, you agree, polling has missed everything in a comprehensive way, right? guest: there is no question that, on the presidential level, we missed a lot. john: why? guest: i'm not sure i know the answer, and frankly there are a lot of people already speculating as to why, and my suspicion is they are rushing to judgment. some of my colleagues in the polling industry are almost making excuses, it's all within the margin of error.
8:31 pm
anybody who says that is fully kidding themselves. what we know is that in states, particularly where there was a high number of noncollege white voters, the error was much higher. the larger number of noncollege whites, the larger error. clearly we missed something on the polling side, and i think we've got to figure out what it is. why? are they not talking to us? are the not interested in doing surveys? are they so dissatisfied with the system that even a phone call is a part of the system? mark: obviously being wrong means hillary clinton was more shocked and disappointed than she would have, but if the data was wrong on election day, it was wrong a month ago, right? if they had a better model, they would have said, we are in more trouble in pennsylvania, wisconsin, in michigan than we thought. that is the real implication, right? guest: it's possible.
8:32 pm
the one thing, the electorate does change over time. what we know, as of yesterday, hillary clinton may have gotten 2.5 million votes fewer than barack obama. we are having a lower turnout. all of our polling is predicated on looking at the past, and past behavior being repetitive particularly in presidential elections, which it normally is. if it's off, we have a hard time figuring out turnout. mark: to break it down, you are saying part of the underperformance was with white working-class voters, right? are there other groups that were clinton seemed to do better in the polling, but worse on election day? guest: there is a correlation. the truth, i'm not sure about the exit polls. we are reporting on them as if they are religion, and i'm not sure, particularly the hispanic number. when you look at precinct or county level data, i'm not sure the reality is going to be that donald trump did better with hispanics than romney.
8:33 pm
john: let me go to a group that has been bugging me, white college-educated voters. hillary clinton was way ahead with white college-educated women and men. on the day, according to the exit polls, she won white college-educated women, but by a much narrower margin, i have lost white college-educated men. -- and lost white college-educated men. what explains that? guest: part of it is it is possible that there is a shy trump motor scenario we have been talking about. it's possible, but i'm still not there yet. take six months from now and the voter files are updated. we will look back at people who said they were going to vote for hillary clinton, and look at those white college-educated voters, and really see what happened. the other thing, we make broad
8:34 pm
assumptions. what is a white college-educated voters? a white college-educated voter in the suburbs of pits -- of philadelphia is not the same as a white college-educated voter in des moines. to say they are the same is silly. hillary clinton won orange county, california. the first democrat to do that. that is a white college-educated voter in one place as opposed to des moines or other places, even pittsburgh. mark: i agree that a problem is treating the exit call like it is a tablet. it is done on the cheap and is not great. if hillary calls you and says, jeff, i need to figure out what happened, what kind of autopsy could you do on your data and the public data to figure out what happened? guest: i think they did the best they could do with the data they had. what i would do is say, wait, take a pause, look at this stuff deep.
8:35 pm
the modeling, some of it was very good. we looked at early voters versus how they were modeled, and i think a lot about stuff may have been very right. the question is looking at turnout, differentials, did we missed something in that? mark: did you go back and look at their data and say, whoa, this was a mistake. guest: we are all going to be able to do that. we could not used to. the exit poll was the only way to do it. now we have a tremendous amount of more data to look at. the exit poll, i think there is a lot of good to the exit poll. i won't go as far as you did, but the exit poll for next that 52% of the electorate nationwide was female. i would not be surprised if we look back at the voter file a year from now if it is not 51 and more like -- if it's 51, meaning -- the smaller the number of females in the electorate, the more likely donald trump would win.
8:36 pm
i think that's the kind of stuff we can look at. john: all these things are totally fascinating, but here is a dumb dumb question. in 2012, 1 of the fascinating things about the obama operation is that, a few days before election day, they sat down and said, here is how we will perform in the battleground states. within almost every state, within very small amounts, they were precisely correct. it was tough and complicated then, it was tough and complicated now. how could they be so on the money and have this operation be so far off, when a lot of them are the same people? john: again, -- guest: again, i don't know because i am on the campaign. that is a place where error does make a difference. there was a great article today about what a 2% difference could mean. i think error has something to do with it. we will find a multiple things came into play, but a shift in
8:37 pm
few independents were voting for and who they were passionate about seems to be a very overwhelming thing and some of the numbers i've seen. john: jeffrey, that was super helpful. this will be a much longer conversation for a lot of democrats and others interested in this topic. tavis smiley joins us after this quick break. ♪
8:38 pm
8:39 pm
mark: we told you about a scoop that attorney howard dean is leaning towards a bid for dnc chairman. dean just tweeted, saying, "the dems need organization, focus on
8:40 pm
the young, the 50 state strategy, and a tech rehab. i am in." joining us is the host of pbs's "the tavis smiley show," tavis smiley. how do you think of howard dean as the dnc chair? do you want to endorse and for that? tavis: i don't endorse people, but they can do much worse. he is a great guy. one thing i respect is that he has said consistently that democrats need a 50 state strategy. clearly what we are seeing this time around is that whatever strategy they thought they had did not quite work. if he advances this notion of a 50 state strategy, then i think democrats can do much worse. john: cap s, you're a democrat, right? tavis: i've never said that publicly, but i sort of did not
8:41 pm
vote for donald trump. john: you made a point that the democratic party did poorly. what do you think the democrats have to do now in the face of full domination of republicans right now? tavis: first, democrats need to accept the fact that donald trump is our president. these protests i am horrified -- i am heartened by. racism, sexism, and classes in won. number two, democrats need to accept the fact that they need to stop trying to triangulate, stop being so centrist. they need to accept the fact that if they can move a little bit to the left, they can pick up the kind of energy, enthusiasm, and excitement that might have made the difference this time around. for my white liberal friends, let me say this. i went to a restaurant today to grab a quick salad before i came to see y'all. i had a waitress come to me, a
8:42 pm
white woman, in tears. i can't tell you the number of phone calls i have received over the last 48 hours from my white liberal friends who feel this is a catastrophe. let me just say respectfully that black folk deal with catastrophe everyday. so many of my white liberal friends are so used to winning that it feels like the world is closing in on you. i am upset too, but misery must never have the last word, number one, and for my white liberal friends asking me how to explain this to your kids, that's not a real problem. a problem is explaining to your kids why there is no food in your refrigerator, why you are being evicted. that's a real problem. we have to contextualize this in a -- in the right way. mark: why did hillary clinton lose? tavis: there are as many answers as there are people in this country. i believe the democrats ran an elitist candidate in a populist
8:43 pm
election. that explains it in part, number one. number two, you can't take voters for granted. number three, i think they were relied on a hail mary from barack obama that suggested that if black people do not vote for hillary, he would take that as a personal insult. i was insulted by the president making that remark, as if black folks don't have agency to vote the way they want to vote, even though many of us voted for hillary clinton. i also can't imagine how these 53% of white women who voted for donald trump, never mind his patriarchy. can you imagine that white women at that level was never even consider voting for a black man, barack obama or anybody else, who had talked about grabbing them down there and talking the
8:44 pm
down after eating tic-tacs. racism, sexism, and elitism on display once again. john: you said another important piece is to accept that donald trump will be president. in terms of trying to contain what democrats see as potential damage, what is the strategy? how do you go about dealing with donald trump in the oval office? tavis: the short answer is that democrats have to get back to representing its base. the democratic party in many ways has abandoned its base of working-class everyday people. when you take care of those people, they will take care of you. the bottom line is clear. hillary's base did not show up in the way that they should have in certain places. if you take care of your people, they will take care of you. the politics will take care of themselves. i will say this. there are some fights that ain't worth fighting even if you win, but there are some fights that
8:45 pm
you have to fight even if you lose. democrats will have to stand on their principles. i was reminded by my friend a day or so ago that you can actually dance in a hurricane if you stand in the eye. what's the point? you have to stand in your truth. even with a hurricane swirling around you, if you stand in your truth, you can make some progress. mark: you said you were glad to see the protests. would you like to see those continue? tavis: i think donald trump has to be held accountable. i think it is fascinating that some of my friends who did not want me to accountable are now bum rushing for me and others to hold donald trump accountable. i am going to do that, but at the end of the day, he's got to be held accountable. you can't run a campaign with the kind of racist, sexist, classist language that donald
8:46 pm
trump and overnight magically say, "now we must unite, now we must come together." there is no apology. we are not magically singing koombayah. i think you must be held accountable all the way through, by democrats and all the rest of the fellow citizens. mark: i appreciate you joining us. next, to explain the whole thing to us in our conclusion, dan and andrew. if you are watching us in washington, d.c., you can listen to us on bloomberg radio. we will be right back. ♪

john: we are joined by chief correspondent of the washington post, our friend dan, who comes from the "post" newsroom in washington, d.c. and the amazing andrea mitchell. andrea: such hype. john: andrea, tell me what, having covered washington in a lot of transitions of power, what did you see today with mr. trump's first day in washington? andrea: i saw something that encouraged the markets, it encouraged me as a citizen, the fact that president obama was as gracious and forthcoming as he clearly was in wanting a longer meeting, a more substantive meeting, and donald trump responded in kind. i was anchoring live when that tape was played back from the oval office. it was extraordinary.
8:50 pm
it was a lesson in democracy. it was donald trump saying it could have gone longer, and i am honored to be with you, and president obama saying that they discussed foreign and domestic issues. i don't doubt that president obama took the opportunity to give donald trump a personal, presidential daily briefing, the likes of which he has not had. he had two intelligence briefings, but they were of the bare-bones sort and not what he now gets as president-elect. just as harry truman did not know until he was actually president that there was an atomic bomb, there is a lot that donald trump is probably learning in the last 48 hours about covert operations and other foreign engagements that we can only imagine, and they are burdens that any president of the united states has every day when he receives that briefing from the intelligence community. mark: there are a million stories we are trying to figure
8:51 pm
out. are you wondering about, about the next couple of weeks through january 20? dan: i'm wondering what all of you are wondering, and that is who is going to surround donald trump when he goes into the white house? first of all, what is the white house staff going to be like? what kind of a mix is it? is a republican insiders, some outsiders? what kind of flavor does it give to the trump presidency? what we are seeing in these days after the election are some predictable and encouraging exchanges of pleasantries and commitments to try to make this transition as smooth as possible, but we know that this is a deeply divided country. we see that from the protests in the streets, and we saw that throughout the campaign with the trump constituency. there is a lot bubbling beneath the surface that these first few meetings don't even begin to get
8:52 pm
at, and i think that's the question i'm most interested in, how that begins to sort itself out. john: andrea, you cover the clinton campaign carefully over the last year and a half. hillary clinton gave her speech yesterday, but there has been more or less silence from her people, from her, from her friends. what is going on in that world, beyond grief? andrea: a lot of grief, a lot of tears. at that concession speech, the eyes were not only filled with tears, but they were rimmed with red. everyone was sure they were going to win. we got it wrong, every pollster got it wrong. the conventional wisdom that he had a path, virtually no one
8:53 pm
