It is not the worst of times, it is not the best of times, but these are scary times and that’s where we begin this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when Halli and Halli’s partner in politics, former White House correspondent, Matthew Cooper, slice and dice all things politics, and Donald Trump, too. And in our second half-hour a conversation with philanthropis, co-founder of The Carlyle Group, and the author of THE AMERICAN STORY: CONVERSATIONS WITH MASTER HISTORIANS, David M. Rubenstein, the podcast available at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.
America is under siege, the enemy a stealth virus that attacks the old and the young, the rich and the poor, a non-dicerning enemy. In our first half-hour, Matt and Halli take a look at how the administration is handling the pandemic. It’s a war being fought on two fronts: the effort to protect the health and safety of our citizens and the efforts to save the American economy. And by the way, while the nation fights for our lives and our well-being there is an election in progress. Former Vice President Joe Biden soundly defeated Senator Bernie Sanders in three primaries. What now? Does Sanders trot off gracefully into the sunset or go on fighting fin the hope of a better day?
In our second half-hour we introduce you to an interesting figure of our times. His name is David M. Rubenstein and David is the co-founder and co-executive Chairman of The Carlyle Group, one of the world’s most successful investment firms. He is also the Chairman of the Boards of Trustees of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Council on Foreign Relations, and an original signer of The Giving Pledge. In his spare time he is the host of The David Rubenstein Show on Bloomberg TV and PBS. His book THE AMERICAN STORY should be on everyone’s bookshelves. And while we all hunker down to defeat the Coronavirus, this is a book that we recommend you read.
