ED: NOW TIME FOR THE POP QUIZ. WE WILL START YOU WITH SOME INFO ON THE 8TH DISTRICT. JOHN QUINCY ADAMS SERVED IN SEVERAL CONGRESS DISTRICTS DURING HIS LIFE, INCLUDING THE 8TH DISTRICT. YOUR QUESTION. HAS HE SERVED THE 8TH ARRONDISSEMENT BEFORE OR AFTER HIS PRESIDENCY. REPRESENTING. LYNCH: BOTH. BY THE WAY, YOU KNOW WHAT? IT IS SERVED AFTER. ED: YOU ARE ONE FOR ONE. JUST BEFORE THE BUZZER. YOU HAVE A GRADUATE FROM THE WENTWORTH INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, LIKE A FORMER GOVERNOR OF MASSACHUSETTS. WHO WAS THIS GOVERNOR? A. ED KING B. JOHN VOLPE C. PAUL CELLUCCI REP. LYNCH: NEED TO SEE, GREAT KING? ED: PAUL CELLUCCI. YOUR QUESTION IS, TRUE OR FALSE. THE OTHER STATUE IS SAMUEL ADAMS? IS IT TRUE OR FALSE? REPRESENTING. LYNCH: IS A BUST A STATUS? ED: I WILL GO TO THE STATUE. IS IT SAMUEL ADAMS? REPRESENTING. LYNCH: I DON’T THINK. ED: IT’S TRUE. LAST QUESTION, AND WE WILL FINISH IN SOUTHIE. IN THE OLD WAY, ANTHONY’S PIER 4 WAS ONE OF THE MOST PROFITABLE RESTAURANTS IN THE WHOLE COUNTRY. WHAT DID THE POWER COUPLE HELP PUT PIER 4 INTO INTERNATIONAL HEADLINES? A. ARISTOTLE ONASSIS AND JACQUELINE KENNEDY B. PAUL NEWMAN AND JOANNE WOODWARD C. RICHARD BURTON AND ELIZABETH TAYLOR REP. LYNCH: I THINK IT WAS RICHARD BURTON? ED: IT WAS. HE WAS PLAYING HAMLET. THEY WERE AT THE SHUBERT THEATER. SHARMAN: WE LAST HAD YOU ON OTR AS RUSSIA WAS PREPARING TO INVADE UKRAINE. SIX MONTHS LATER, VLADIMIR PUTIN CONTINUES HIS BLOODY WAR, AS UKRAINE STRUGGLES TO HOLD ON. IS THERE A WAY OUT OF THIS HUMANITARIAN TRAGEDY? REPRESENTING. LYNCH: I’M NOT SURE THERE ARE. WE MUST CONTINUE TO SUPPORT UKRAINE. SUPPORT THEIR GOVERNMENT. THEY SHOW NO WEAKNESSES. THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY COMMITTED TO THEIR FREEDOM. WE LEAD, PRESIDENT BIDEN LEADS A STRONG COALITION. NOW WE HAVE FINLAND AND SWEDEN APPLYING FOR NATO MEMBERSHIP WHICH IS HUGE. WHICH INCREASES THE BORDER WITH RUSSIA BY 800 MILES. WE ARE RIGHT. SHARMAN: WE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT WITH FUNDING. REPRESENTING. LYNCH: I KNOW THE PRESIDENT COMMITTED ANOTHER BILLION DOLLARS. SOME OF OUR EUROPEAN ALLIES ARE MAKING SIMILAR EFFORTS. ED: IS THERE ANY CHANCE THE DEMOCRATS CAN HOLD HOUSE IN THE MEDIUM TERM? REPRESENTING. LYNCH: I AM NOT A POLITICAL EXPERT, THIS IS CLOSER THAN IT WAS A FEW MONTHS AGO. WITH THE RECENT SUCCESS THE PRESIDENT HAS HAD. I THINK THIS WAS USEFUL. REPUBLICANS MAY HAVE INJURED WITH ROE V. WADE. AGAIN, WE ONLY HAVE A MAJORITY OF NINE VOTES NOW. WHATEVER IT WAS, I THINK BALANCE IN THE HOUSE WILL BE VERY CLOSE. WE MAY BE LESS THAN A FEW VOTES AWAY, BUT I DON’T THINK IT WILL BE A WHITE ELECTION. ED: EARLIER ON THE SHOW WHEN WE WERE TALKING ABOUT EXAMPLES OF ENFORCEMENT OF THE NEW LAW, YOU MENTIONED THE POSTAL VEHICLE. WILL YOU BE POSTAL DIRECTOR GENERAL? REPRESENTING. LYNCH: I LIKE GETTING MY MAIL ON TIME SO I WOULD TAKE THIS JOB. ED: WE HAVE TO ASK YOU THIS QUESTION EVERY TIME YOU ARE HERE. REPRESENTING. LYNCH: HE HELPED US IMPLEMENT THE POSTAL REFORM BILL. I THINK HE HAS DONE ENOUGH TO EARN HIS GUARD SO FAR.
