Canada and Mexico as Trump faces looming midterm elections in which he is aiming to reassure farmers and others in his base that his aggressive trade policy is getting results Canada and Mexico are the US’s second- and third-biggest trading partners respectively and an important destination for US exports Trump said Monday that he hopes Canada will join the deal by Friday a move which seemed intended to bring Canada to the table quickly and limit the country’s ability to press its own concerns But a senior Administration official insisted that wasn’t the case on a conference call with journalists “This wasnt designed to put pressure on anyone or anything like that” he said “This is a normal orderly way to arrive at an agreement with three people” Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland is due to arrive in Washington DC Tuesday and described the news as “encouraging” in a statement But the country has in the past insisted that it would not be bullied into accepting a deal without working through its areas of concern and it seems likely the Friday deadline will pass without a new agreement in place The Administration says it will proceed with the new deal regardless of what happens with Canada but that promise could run up against several roadblocks In the past Mexico has insisted that any NAFTA deal be trilateral and Peña Nieto seemed to suggest a similar vein of thinking Monday repeatedly telling Trump that he wanted Canada to be a part of the new deal Asked about whether Mexico would be willing to sign a deal without Canada a senior Administration official demurred offering arguments for why the country might want to without saying that it would “For more clarity maybe ask the Mexicans” the official said Moreover revising NAFTA would require Congressional approval and Congress might reject a deal that doesn’t include all three countries Earlier this year 36 Republican senators including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell calling on Trump to keep the deal intact while modernizing it Trump could try to abandon the deal without Congressional approval but the move would likely draw legal challenges Perhaps more significantly skeptics of the new deal have grounds to question whether the White House was entitled to negotiate a new trade deal in the first place A 2015 law requires the Administration to inform Congress 90 days before beginning trade negotiations The White House told Congress last year that it would renegotiate NAFTA but never said it would start talks on an entirely new deal (The Administration said Monday that it believes that it has met its legal requirement) Regardless of Trump’s claims of reaching an entirely new trade deal the new agreement does seem to bring the three countries much closer to a potential NAFTA rewrite more than 25 years after it took effect The deal resolves several thorny debates between the US and Mexico including how much of a car’s content needs to be made in the region to qualify for tariff exemption the minimum wage for some autoworkers and how to treat Mexico’s energy sector which was closed to US investment when NAFTA was first drafted Trump may yet get Canada and Mexico to agree to a new deal but the announcement Monday was part of the process not as Trump seemed to suggest the end result Write to Justin Worland at [email protected] Bloom rose to Internet fame five years ago with a YouTube video in which she described in song all the not-safe-for-work things she wanted sci-fi writer Ray Bradbury to do to her Now dozens of viral videos later her self-described "one-woman sketch comedy group" has landed her a TV show on The CW Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (Oct 12) which stands to translate her digital celebrity into old-fashioned real-world fame Blooms brand of comedy is one part raunch one part Jewish neurosis and another part inversion of musical theaters often saccharine sensibilityas she describes it "doing the genre so hard that youre parodying the genre" Her videos cover ground like the hypersexualization of pop music and the historical inaccuracies of Disney movies; she starts with an art form she loves and annihilates its cheeky charms with in-your-face cleavage and unapologetic profanity In Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Bloom plays Rebecca Bunch a high-achieving but spiritually broken-down New York lawyer who after running into teenage flame Josh Chan (Vincent Rodriguez III) follows him cross-country to fill what she believes to be a Josh-sized void in her soul The show turns out to be in many ways the opposite of what its title suggestsits less about romantic love than it is about female friendship and it treats the stereotype it invokes as something to be dismantled rather than fulfilled Bloom took a break from filming to talk to TIME about growing up a musical theater nerd the horrific ordeal that is getting ready for a date and how the show inverts the Bechdel testa feminist litmus test a show passes only if two female characters have a conversation about something other than a man TIME: Obviously there are a lot of stereotypes about musical theater people But what it was like for you specifically growing up as a musical theater kid Rachel Bloom: I was very loud very obnoxious I was made fun of quite a lot My friend at school once wrote an essay on me and it was something like "While the rest of us were going to sleepovers and having friends Rachel was at singing classes" In eighth grade a teacher started a year-round musical theater class and thats when I started to fit in I remained myself and the world got cooler around me When was the moment that the singing and dancing merged with comedy When I got to NYU I was a musical theater major and I also auditioned for and got on a sketch comedy group Every month we would write and perform a new sketch comedy show So for four years there I had a real crash course in comedy Right before my junior year I took a musical theater writing class through the grad school and all of the songs I wanted to write were comedic Thats when I started to realize "Oh I can combine these things" The first video you posted on YouTube "F— Me Ray Bradbury" went viral Before you posted it did you have an inkling that there was a void in musical comedy that you might be able to fill I definitely felt it As an actor I wanted songs that were actually hard laughs and thats hard to find in musical theater And as a viewer I wanted more like South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut I wanted more like The Producers In a lot of musical comedy there are a lot of clever turns of phrase a lot of pop culture references and that wasnt my jam So it came from wanting to get more of my type of humor into the art form that I love so much Have you ever considered the humorous self-parody of many of your videos as an invitation to people who are skeptical of musical theater Like people cant make fun of it if its already making fun of itself Sure yeah Most of my friends are comedians who are not necessarily musical theater fans I know musicals are ridiculous People dont talk like this people dont burst into song like this So I think it helps cut out the legs from people who make fun of it and it brings in a modern alt-comedy sensibility This sense of pastiche of kind of meta-parody or doing the genre so hard that youre parodying the genre In a lot of my videos and in the show theres a lot of oversexulization and thats how I parody pop Pop now is so overly sexualized and by [taking] that oversexualization so far as to being almost unsexy in how blatant it is it turns into parody Having mostly written on your own in the past what was your process of writing with your co-creator Aline Brosh McKenna Shes truly brilliant And our sensibilities are different We like the same things but we come from two different backgrounds So the way we wrote the first three episodes was just improvising in a room Usually Aline would be at the computer and we would just riff with each other We created a tone together that I dont think either of us would have created on our own A lot of your videos involve very raunchy humor Did it feel limiting having to let go of some of that for a more general audience On some of the videos that kind of demand to be dirty were doing dirty versions that Im going to be posting on my own YouTube We just released the explicit version of the first music video from the pilot called "The Sexy Getting Ready Song" So I dont feel limited There are ways to be dirty without using the language As long as the joke is a hard joke as long as its not innuendo as long as its not coybecause thats the death of laugh-out-loud humor coyness Kind of like "Im saying the thing but not really saying the thing" Thats what I try to avoid Your videos also have a lot of Jewish humor How much of that makes its way into the show Actually quite a lot I grew up in LA and lived in New York so for me everyones Jewish Im Jewish Aline is Jewish theres a Jewish sensibility to what we do Theres a neurosis there theres a self-hatred theres an aspiration to assimilate but at the same time the aspiration to keep oneself an "other" We write what we know And also Jews come from immigrants and theres an ethos to immigrants in general thats "work hard make the species survive" that I think applies to a lot of different cultures How do you strike a balance between making Rebecca ridiculous enough to be funny but not so ridiculous that shes a caricature Well its based on an aspect of my own personality which is the struggle between being logical and going with your heart with your impulses If I always understand where shes coming from you can play it from a grounded place But we try to make it so that you understand even if its not the correct thing why shes doing what shes doing I know a big part of the show is going to be Rebeccas relationship with a woman she meets at her new job Paula How much is this show about romance and how much is it about female friendship We always said the real love story of the show is Rebecca and Paula Its kind of flipping the Bechdel test on its head because in every scene theyre talking about a dude but inadvertently theyre becoming bonded and theyre becoming close friends Were you ever worried that people would say that if the genders were reversed this would be a show about a creepy stalker but because its a woman we allow it Absolutely It didnt even occur to me at first the double-standard because from the beginning Aline and I were writing this from such a feminist perspective Were taught to be strong women we want to be strong women but both our western ideas of romance and also our own emotions make us crazy Women are fed all of these contradictory ideas about what love is and what you should and shouldnt have and youre supposed to have it all but youre also supposed to fall in love It wasnt until people started saying "This shows sexist" that I was like “Oh right theres a whole other version of this show where shes a sketchy character and its like "Look at that crazy bitch" And thats just so not what the show is If you watch the show youre going to know very quickly that the title is a commentary and that were deconstructing that label from a female point of view "The Sexy Getting Ready Song" is all about the horrific things women do to get ready for a date I put on Spanx I wax my butthole Its horrifying Maybe people who take the title literally will watch the show and be duped into a new kind of understanding Exactly Like "Oh when I called my ex a crazy bitch I wasnt considering that she was actually mentally unstable and also I was a pretty bad boyfriend who led her to this place"
