i think there have been great pictures, sort of good showmanship, which we know the president loves signature moments, right? first was having the summit in the first place. then the first president to set ot into north korea as a sitting president. so i think he enjoys having those little markers be associated with the trump name. he got nothing out of the first one. he got nothing out of the second one. he has to have something. that first meeting, the highest job approval rating in our polling was right after that meeting with kim jong un. look, who doesn't want talks instead of nukes? we may be polarized. we are not that polarized. so it was a good moment for him. if you can get an agreement, it could be a great moment for him. but there is thisense of is kim jong un playing him a little bit? >> yes. >> and i think that is ter conc >> we don't know where this is going. it's not clear from what we have seen. it's the big shiny object for

gauntlet where everybody comes up. ckok, these -- the debates on the back-to-ba nights proved they were copycaters. on the first night whensa they w they could insert theiray in and not have us cutff their secondthey overdid it the night. i think the candidates are going to go over the top going a ger biden to their viral moment, especially ify thethink this helped kamala harris. we will find out i think in six weeks if biden can handle incoming, because it's coming. >> several other candidates attracted attention. i covered the first night in miami. julian castro. >> i think he showed why he was seen as a future star eight years ago. remember when he did -- >> yeah. >> and it's hard to stand out. he got an opportunity. >> he did. thanks. far fewer spanish on the second night than the first night. >> yeain i thk that the others thought, tiwell, they are getng -- they looked at how itter mocked some of them. >> i thought that gave the second night the unfair y vantage. theuld see how it went. >> i had a discussion to the
