  • -While you're here, I do want to get

  • some of your thoughts on a bunch of things

  • that are happening right now.

  • Yesterday was Super Tuesday.

  • Why is that so important, Super Tuesday?

  • -Well, it's important because there are so many contests,

  • and it literally goes across the country,

  • from Massachusetts to California and a lot of stops in between.

  • So it's the first time that the real diversity

  • of our country is going to go out and vote.

  • And then, that vote will have a big impact on the outcome,

  • as we saw last night with Joe Biden.

  • -Yeah, that was -- -Right.

  • -What did you think of that?

  • -Look, I thought it was very exciting because,

  • starting in South Carolina, he had so much energy.

  • And what he had to say was, you know, really enthusiastic

  • and positive and about what he was gonna do and who he was.

  • And the people of South Carolina obviously rewarded that.

  • And then, that kind of set off this momentum.

  • And it carried him.

  • He won all but, I guess, three states.

  • -Yeah. Why do you think people connect with Joe Biden?

  • -You know, look, I've known him for a really long time.

  • I think people know he is a deeply decent person.

  • He is a kind person.

  • He doesn't take cheap shots at people.

  • He doesn't insult people as a way of, you know,

  • trying to put people down and lift himself up.

  • He is such the opposite of what we currently have

  • in the White House that I think --

  • I really think a lot of people --

  • [ Cheers and applause ] -Yeah.

  • -You know, had a chance to think about it

  • as this contest got going and decided,

  • "Boy, the most important thing is we retire the incumbent."

  • That's more important than anything else.

  • And he has the experience. He know what needs to be done.

  • He can repair the damage that he would be inheriting.

  • So I think that's what was going on in people's minds.

  • [ Laughter ] Yeah.

  • -Have the candidates reached out to you for any advice?

  • -Practically all of them. Yeah.

  • -Yeah. -Not all, but practically all.

  • -Oh, yeah. -Yeah. And so, I've --

  • I've been talking with people either in person

  • or on the phone for, you know, more than a year.

  • -And what's your advice to them, if you don't --

  • -I answer any questions they have, Jimmy.

  • You know, 'cause running for President is such an audacious

  • and difficult decision to make.

  • So, some came early on, like, "What's it like?"

  • You know, "How do you think about it?

  • How do you put a staff together?"

  • And then, you know, "What do you think I'll be facing?"

  • So I answer specific questions from each of them.

  • But then, I have always said, "Look, you can run

  • the best campaign, and you can become the nominee,

  • but you got to be willing to take on

  • the scourge of voter suppression."

  • It is so wrong what's being done to try to purge people

  • from voting lists, not let them register.

  • Or as we saw in places yesterday,

  • particularly in Texas, you know, the Republican side

  • gets five machines -- or, gets 25 machines,

  • the Democratic side gets five machines.

  • People were literally standing in line for seven hours.

  • And I want to applaud everybody who stood in a line yesterday,

  • because they were doing the right thing...

  • [ Cheers and applause ] -Absolutely.

  • -...for our country. And, you know,

  • the candidates also have to --

  • have to be willing to admit Russia interfered last time.

  • They're interfering this time. -Yeah.

  • -We know that. Even the Trump administration

  • has to admit that. So the propaganda, the lies,

  • the disinformation, the theft of information and all of that,

  • that went on last time is gonna be back.

  • And so, it's not only the candidates,

  • although they have to be prepared to take it on,

  • but voters need to be aware of all that.

  • -Oh, yeah. -Yeah.

  • -And what advice do you have to the voters?

  • -Really pay attention.

  • Don't get fooled by the propaganda.

  • Just because something pops up in your Facebook feed,

  • don't think it's true.

  • I'm really very sad that Facebook has said,

  • "We're not going to take down false information."

  • Candidates, and particularly Trump, is doing this.

  • You can pay to put lies on Facebook,

  • and it's really slickly produced,

  • people think it's true.

  • Really be skeptical about what's coming in the Facebook feed

  • or really any kind of social-media information

  • that you get, because so much of it is manipulated.

  • You don't know where it's coming from.

  • -Yeah, I was gonna say, is it from -- do you think --

  • is there other people besides Russia?

  • Is it other countries? -Well, we know

  • from the intelligence that's been shared,

  • that Iran tried to mess with the primary.

  • But if you were a foreign adversary of ours,

  • or if you just wanted to mess around with us,

  • why wouldn't you try? Because it worked last time.

  • So, hey, get in there and try to pretend

  • you're for somebody else, or pretend you're, you know,

  • a certain kind of citizen, and you have a certain

  • set of beliefs, and you try to, you know, gin something up.

  • So, yeah, I think all of that's

  • going to go on and is going on as we speak.

-While you're here, I do want to get
