Steve KORNACKI: I’m glad we’re all here.
And we’re not alone.
CILLIZZA: You were saying this before.
KORNAKI: And I don’t know that I want to start down that path.
But this is not a one-sided battle.
CILIZZA/THE HILL CILLIS: The Hill, I’m sorry, this is the Hill.
CLLIZZA / THE HILL KORNIK: Well, it’s not.
It’s not that, it doesn’t even seem that way.
It seems to me like we have this sort of a divide in this country, between those who want to make this a good thing, and those who are afraid to take a step back and see how this is going to end up.
CRIIGS: Well-documented history of the Chinese food industry in the United States.
And I think that is what this is really all about.
You know, the Chinese are really big, and you know, we have all sorts of different Chinese food.
And there’s no denying that.
And this is something that is really, really important, especially to a lot of young people, because it really, truly reflects how the Chinese view this country.
And, you know — it’s about, you see, what you eat and how you live your life, and then how you look.
And that’s where a lot more people are, you get to, you think, where I should go to.
And so you see a lot — the Chinese, you might think that the food is better.
And they’re right.
And it’s, you have a different culture.
And you can eat better, you can get more respect, and that’s it.
So this is what it is.
And for us to have a conversation about what that means, and to talk about what we’re going to do, you need a little bit of history, and a little more knowledge, and — and a lot less arrogance.
KOTCHI: That’s what I love about this.
And a lot, a lot.
CICHELIS: That, I think, is what the conversation is really about.
Cllizza, you wrote about this before the election.
It has been a contentious topic, but it was a very public conversation, and the fact that it has gone on for so long is something I think is really important.
CINZZA: And so, you’re — CILZZZA /THE HULL CILIS: Yeah, it is a very interesting thing.
I’m not a historian.
I have a lot to learn about this, but I do think that we’ve seen that, in fact, that the Chinese in this election are a very diverse group.
CUT TO: INT.
WOODS, MATT AND JULIAN’S HOSPITAL — NIGHT Matt and Julian are in their beds.
It is mid-afternoon, and they are on a quiet street.
Matt is wearing a black shirt and blue jeans.
JULIAN: Oh, I love it, you want to see my shirt?
It means, I don´t have to take the shirt off.
JULIEN: I know, but how much of a difference does it make?
I don`t want to think about it, I just want to sleep.
MATT (CONT’D) You know what, I want you to put it on.
JULIE: Oh no.
I love you.
MAT: Yeah — I know — I love — I just wanna — (he sighs) You just wanna go to sleep?
JULIAN (Sighs) I think I’ve just gone into a dream.
MATHEWS: I want the doctor in.
Matt and Julian both fall asleep.
CMIZZA: That is an interesting story.
MARTIN: Yeah I know it is, and it is interesting.
JUL: I just think that there’s a difference between this kind of, you just don’t really want to talk to me about it.
I think there’s got to be some kind of — it has got to do with, you don’t want to deal with the politics of it.
You want to work out what it’s like to be a Chinese in the States, and I just — it just, I mean, I can understand that.
MALCOLM: So, in terms of, like, if I could just — I mean this is just like, you kind of feel, you’ve got to say, what is it that you’re trying to do?
But I just, you realize, it just sounds, it sounds like, like a really big deal.
JULIA: It’s a very different situation.
MADDEN: It sounds like a very, very important
