  • ♪ ♪ ♪ >> Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY,

  • WE'RE BACK WITH "60 MINUTES" JOHN DICKERSON.

  • JOHN, AS YOU SAID EARLIER, THIS ALSO COMES AT A TIME WHEN THE

  • REPUBLICANS ARE PUSHING THROUGH AMY CONEY BARRETT TO REPLACE

  • RUTH BADER GINSBURG.

  • DO YOU THINK THIS WILL AFFECT THAT IN ANY WAY?

  • I KNOW-- I KNOW McCONNELL SAID THEY'RE GOING TO PUSH AHEAD, BUT

  • IS IT GOING TO BE ZOOM CONFIRMATIONS?

  • BECAUSE THERE MAY BE CASCADING EFFECTS THROUGHOUT THE

  • REPUBLICAN HIERARCHY BECAUSE OF THEIR CONTACTS WITH PEOPLE AT

  • THE WHITE HOUSE.

  • >> THAT'S RIGHT.

  • AND IT MAY-- THERE MAY HAVE BEEN AN EVENT-- IT MAY HAVE BEEN

  • BARRETT'S ANNOUNCEMENT AT THE WHITE HOUSE THAT WAS AN EVENT

  • WHERE SPREADING TOOK PLACE.

  • SENATOR MIKE LEE FROM UTAH IS ISOLATING BECAUSE HE TESTED

  • POSITIVE.

  • THE ONLY DELAY OR DIFFERENCE IS MITCH McCONNELL MAY-- HE HAD

  • WANTED IN-PERSON HEARINGS AND IN-PERSON SENATE AND HE MAY NOW

  • BUCKLE ANDEB MIGHT BE ON A REMOTE CALL TO MAKE THIS GO

  • THROUGH.

  • BUT MITCH McCONNELL IS SO FOCUSED ON THIS, I DON'T THINK

  • THERE'S GOING TO BE ANY DELAY.

  • >> Stephen: YOUR "ATLANTIC" PIECE "SPARE A MOMENT FOR

  • SORROW" WHICH YOU WROTE IN MARCH, ABOUT THEN A MUCH SMALLER

  • DEATH TOLL FOR COVID-19 IN THE UNITED STATES.

  • IT TALKED ABOUT A LACK OF CENTRAL A PUBLIC FIGURE WHO WAS

  • LEADING OUR COUNTRY IN GRIEF AND ADDRESSING THE LOSS OF OUR

  • FELLOW CITIZENS, AND LEAD US TOWARD THE HUMANITY OF THIS

  • MOMENT.

  • NOW THAT THE MAN IN THE CENTER OF OUR NATIONAL STORY, THE ONE

  • WHO DID NOT LEAD US, IS THE PERSON WHO IS NOW AFFECTED BY

  • THIS TERRIBLE DISEASE, IS THERE A WAY THAT THE COUNTRY ITSELF

  • CAN SET THAT TONE IN THE ABSENCE OF HIS LEADERSHIP?

  • BECAUSE I THINK NOW WE ESPECIALLY NEED IT.

  • BECAUSE HOWEVER YOU FEEL ABOUT THE PRESIDENT, HE IS THE CENTRAL

  • FIGURE OF OUR NATION.

  • >> THAT'S RIGHT.

  • SO I THINK IT IS-- IT'S SOMETHING THAT WE ALL CAN

  • PRACTICE IN NOT MIXING THE HUMAN WITH THE POLITICAL.

  • AND THAT'S ALREADY HAPPENED A LOT WITH THIS IN THE GRIM KIND

  • OF GHOULISH COUNTING OF WHAT NUMBERS ARE REAL AND WHAT

  • NUMBERS AREN'T REAL.

  • AND WHAT STRIKES ME IS THAT WHEN THOSE CONVERSATIONS TAKE PLACE,

  • OR WHEN SOMEBODY WHO MIGHT WANT TO HAVE A PARTISAN RESPONSE TO

  • THE PRESIDENT'S ILLNESS, WHEN THEY DO THAT, WE ARE ALL KNIT

  • TOGETHER IN THIS MOMENT OF SORROW.

  • THERE ARE PEOPLE AND FAMILIES OF THE 207,000 WHO HAVE DIED WHO

  • ARE AFFECTED BY OUR PUBLIC CONVERSATIONS.

  • THEY ARE-- WE ARE ALL AT THIS MOMENT TOGETHER AS OPPOSED TO

  • GRIEF, WHICH OFTEN HAPPENS ALONE.

  • AND YOU LOOK AT THE REST OF THE WORLD, AND YOU THINK, "THEY

  • DON'T KNOW ABOUT MY SORROW" WE ALL DO KNOW.

  • WE ARE ALL GOING THROUGH IT TOGETHER.

  • SO THAT PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR A LEADER TO SPEAK TO THAT

  • MOMENT AND BRING EVERYBODY TOGETHER, AND ALSO JUST SPEAK TO

  • A HOLE IN EVERYBODY'S HEART.

  • BUT IT ALSO SPEAKS TO A MOMENT FOR ALL OF US TO PARTICIPATE IN,

  • WHICH IS TO RECOGNIZE OUR COMMON HUMANITY AND MAYBE LAY OFF FOR A

  • MINUTE WHEN THE MOST POWERFUL PERSON, EVEN IF YOU DON'T LIKE

  • HIM, HAPPENS TO BE GOING THROUGH THE SAME THING.

  • >> Stephen: JOHN, THANKS FOR BEING HERE.

  • >> THANK YOU, STEPHEN.

  • >> Stephen: JOHN DICKERSON, EVERYBODY.

  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
