better than allowing their parents to spend more time and be more involved in their lives. especially from their early days. people work somewhere and they have a child and within two weeks of a cesarean section or three weeks of giving birth they have to hurry back to work because they can't miss one paycheck. it's startling how many parents, particularly first time mothers and people go on public assistance because they lose their job or can't draw a paycheck any longer. no one is required to do this but everyone will have the option of saying i'm going to take some of my benefits, these are your benefits, not everybody else and take a portion of that earlier because i need that money now. people can do that with 401k. you should be able to do that with social security. >> it's estimated thatve 10orkers receives paid family leave from their employers. people need family leave.ero

8:36 am
choose between retirement security and caring for a new child? >> no, ultimately right now they don't have a choice at all of how they're going to pay for their bills at the front end. many people right now if you have a child your job is required to give you 12 weeks of leave but they don't have to pay you so you'll go without any pay for 4 to 8 weeks. most people can't afford that. we have people going on public assistance. this is just an option. no one is forced to do it. some people will decide they don't want to do it but it's an option available for people that they don't have right now because as it stands today if we to nothing you'll continue to see 9 out of 10 will basically not draw any income during that period wor of time it's causing real economic strain right now. >> senator, president trump tweeted yesterday that attorney general jeff sessions should end the special counsel's russia investigation. he called it again a rigged witch hunt. is that obstruction of justice? >> well, i don't know the legal definition of that would be with regards to the tweet.

against it. >> most of it hasn't even started getting pay yet. so the states wouldn't even be able to spend that money. they wouldn't know what to spend it on. they have barely begun to spend the money given to them a few months ago so if more is needed next year we'll provide more but i can tell you for example the state of florida initially wasn't going to apply for the money available right now because they couldn't spend it between now and november. so the money that we have already appropriated is the money that was based on a professional assessment of what the needs were from a national level and that money was appropriated. if an additional amount is necessary in the future we'll provide it but there is no outcry from states saying they need more money. they haven't begun to spend the money they have right now. most of them haven't carried out an assessment of what they're going to need over the next 4 to 6 months, much less begin to spend it. >> that's even more scary. >> well, here's why. every county is different.

elections in this country are not run by central organizations. they're run at the county level. some counts are further ahead than others. some don't need help. they have it covered. many others do not and they're going through the process of it. it's something to be concerned about, no doubt but this is nothing but a stunt to be able to say thank you for providing the money. we're going to provide more money to make it look like you don't care. but it's not real. >> senator marco rubio, thank you for being with us this morning. >> thank you. >> the daily show with trevor noah has a new book on president trump's most infamous tweets like covfefe. >> he sent it out and delivered it six hours later. why did he stop? did someone tackle him? was he letting the tweet ma marina marinate overnight. >> how twitter has shaped the

individually. it doesn't tell you a story. if you wake up every morning looking at tweets like marco rubio said, you go crazy. it gives you a pattern how trump creates the smallest benign things he he creates nicknames for his political enemies, how much he hates diet coke more than hillary clinton. >> more than hillary clinton or more than hillary clinton hates diet coke? >> more than hillary clinton. and how he sees the witch hunt. how he communicates with people that work for him. you see the twet to jeff sessions is not something in isolation. you start to see a trend. not only is he an interesting president but he's the most prolific twitterer we've seen in our lifetimes. >> the interesting thing is while it's been an impressive way of communicating with his yepporters, what happened sty erdawh heree urged jeff
