Progressives worry about the strength of the 2020 Democratic field


SHANNON?>>Shannon: THANKS, KRISTIN. THANK YOU. LIVE AT THE WHITE HOUSE. SO THE STRONGER THAN EXPECTED SHOWING AT THE PRESIDENT’S FUND RAISER INSPIED OF THE CONDEMNATION OF CONSERVATIVES MAY LOOK LIKE THE UNEASE. VICTOR DAVIS HANSON PUTS IT TONIGHT IN AN OP-ED, HE SAID ALL REFLECT A LACK OF PROGRESSIVE CONFIDENCE THAT THEY CAN VOTE TRUMP OUT OF OFFICE IN THE NEXT ELECTION AND INSTEAD SEEK TO USE EXTRAORDINARY MEANS TO ABORT HIS PRESIDENCY. JOINING ME NOW,DAY BROWN AND DINESH D’SOUZA. AND WE SAW THESE COMMENTS FROM DONNIE DEUTSCHE. HERE’S WHAT HE HAD TO SAY.>>YOU CAN’T SAY, WELL, I LIKE HIS ECONOMIC POLICY AND WHATNOT. BUT I DISAGREE — YOU OWN IT. YOU OWN THE BLOOD. YOU OWN CHARLOTTESVILLE. THAT’S WHAT SWING VOTERS HAVE GOT TO UNDERSTAND AND BE SHAMED INTO.>>DINESH, YOUR REACTION.>>AMERICAN POLITICS IS ENTERING A DANGEROUS PHASE THAT I HAVEN’T SEEN IN MY ADULT LIFETIME. IT’S A PHASE IN WHICH DISCUSSION AND DEBATE IS REPLACED WITH THREATS AND INTIMIDATION. THOSE CAN EXKA LAT THOSE CAN EX K LAT THOSE CAN EX KA AT THOSE CAN EX KA LAI THOSE CAN EXKAA LAI THOSE CAN EXKA LLAI THOSE CAN EXKA LATI THOSE CAN EXKA LATE — ESCALATE QUICKLY. WE’VE SEEN IT IN EUROPE WHERE IT TURNS INTO BLOWS AND FIGHTS IN THE STREETS. I’M WORRIED ABOUT WHERE OUR POLITICS IS GOING. THIS IS A CASE WHERE WHEN ONE SIDE STARTS, THE OTHER SIDE HAS TO RESPOND. THE TRUMPSTERS WON’T TAKE THIS LYING DOWN. SOON THEY’LL RELEASE JOAQUIN’S FAMILY ADDRESSES. THIS IS A GAME THAT TWO PEOPLE CAN PLAY.>>Shannon: DO YOU WORRY THAT THE DEMOCRATS FACE BACKLASH? THEY’RE PLAYING WITH FIRE HERE. I THINK OF HILLARY CLINTON TALKING ABOUT THE BASKET OF DEPLORABLES. PEOPLE STARTED TO SAY LISTEN, YOU’VE COMPLETELY DISRESPECTED ME. WHY WOULD I THINK ABOUT VOTING FOR YOU. NOW WE HAVE PEOPLE SAYING IF YOU VOTE FOR THE PRESIDENT, YOU’RE A WHITE SUPREMACIST. ARE YOU GOING TO ALIENATE HALF THE COUNTRY?>>YEAH, I REJECT THAT PREMISE. IF YOU LOOK AT 2018, WHEN DEMOCRATS TOOK BACK THE HOUSE, THEY DID THAT BY WINNING IN PERSUADING HEARTS AND MINDS AND FOLKS THAT VOTED FOR THE PRESIDENT IN 2016. SO THERE’S A PROVEN PATH HERE WHERE IF YOU MAKE THE BEST ARGUMENT AND YOU COME AT IT FROM A PERSPECTIVE OF YOUR VALUES AND WHAT I STAND FOR AS A CANDIDATE — AND I AGREE WITH DINESH. DEBATE IS THE HEALTHY WAY TO GO. BUT DEMOCRATS CAN WIN ON THE MERITS.>>Shannon: BUT CALLING PEOPLE WHITE SUPREMACIST, IS THAT DEBATING THINGS ON THE MERITS OR IS THAT GOING TO HAVE A BUNCH OF PEOPLE SAYING LISTEN, I’M NOTHING CLOSE TO THAT. NOW THAT YOU LABELLED ME THAT WAY, I WON’T LISTEN TO ANYTHING ELSE YOU SAY?>>THAT’S DIRECTED AT ME. I’M SORRY, DINESH.>>I WAS SAYING WE’VE HAD TWO MASS SHOOTINGS. IN ONE CASE, THERE WAS A GUY THAT WAS ANTI-IMMIGRANT A WHITE SUPREMACIST. THAT WAS PART OF HIS MOTIVE. HE WAS PROGRESSIVE ON OTHER ISSUES. WHITE SUPREMACIST WAS PART OF THE MIX. THE OTHER ONE WOULD VOTE FOR ELIZABETH WARREN AND PRO ANTIFA. BUT WE HEAR VERY LITTLE ABOUT THAT SHOOTER. THERE’S A BROADER FORCE AT WORK HERE AND WE HAVE TO CONSIDER THE ANTIFA HAS PRODUCED ITS FIRST MASS KILLER.>>PART OF THE DISTINCTION AND THE COVERAGE, THE KILLER IN TEXAS PUBLISHED A MANIFESTO. WE HAVE THE WRITTEN BODY OF WORK FROM WHICH WE CAN EXAMINE MOTIVATION.>>Shannon: PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW AS WELL. I DON’T KNOW IF THEY HAVE TAKEN TIME — A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY I WON’T READ A WORD. I GET THAT BUT HE’S WORRIED ABOUT CORPORATE PROFITS AND NOT RIGHT LEANING ISSUES. CLEARLY HE HAD AN ISSUE WITH RACE. THERE WAS OTHER STUFF THAT HAS TO BE CONSIDERED IF YOU READ IT.>>I’LL GO BACK TO YOUR ORIGINAL QUESTION. THE NOTION OF PAINTING IN BROAD STROKES ANYBODY THAT VOTED FOR THE PRESIDENT IS A WHITE SUPREMACIST, OF COURSE NOT. IT’S RIDICULOUS. THE NUANCE IS LOST HERE. LET’S HAVE IT NOW. THE POINT IS THAT WHEN YOU SPEAK IN RED RICK AND WHEN THE PRESIDENT SPEAKS IN RHETORIC THAT IS RACIALIZED AND WHITE SUPREMACISTS SAYING WE IDENTIFY WITH THIS PRESIDENT, HE’S SPEAKING ON OUR BEHALF, THAT’S THE PROBLEM. I’M GLAD TO SEE THE PRESIDENT OUTRIGHT CONDEMNED THAT FOLLOWING THE SHOOTINGS. WE HAVE A WAYS TO GO IN TONING DOWN THAT RHETORIC AND MAKING IT CLEAR THAT WHITE SUPREMACISTS HAVE NO PLACE IN THIS COUNTRY AT LARGE.>>Shannon: FINALLY TO YOU, DINESH.>>I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT TO POINT OUT THAT THIS SO-CALLED RACIALIZED RHETORIC THAT YOU’RE ACCUSING TRUMP OF USING RELIES ON CONFLATING A COUPLE OF DISTINCTIONS. FIRST OF ALL, CONFLATING THE DISSTING — DISTINCTION OF IMMIGRANTS. I’M A LEGAL IMMIGRANT. INFESTATION WAS THE TERM ELIJAH CUMMINGS USED ABOUT HIS OWN DISTRICT. INFESTATION REFERS TO A STATE OF THINGS, WHEN THINGS ARE SO BAD. YOU THINK THAT TRUMP WOULD HESITATE TO CALL SAN FRANCISCO NANCY PELOSI’S DISTRICT, FOR EXAMPLE, INFESTED WITH THE SAME KIND OF TERRIBLE SCHOOLS AND SAME KIND OF TRASH –>>Shannon: LET’S LET DINESH FINISH AND WE HAVE TO GO.>>WELL, THE POINT I’M TRYING TO MAKE IS THAT TRUMP’S ATTACKS ARE POLITICAL. THEY’RE NOT RACIAL. HE ATTACKS WITH THE SAME GLEE OF PEOPLE THAT ARE WHITE OR BLACK OR WHATEVER. THERE’S A CERTAIN KIND OF PROMISCUITY IN TRUMP.

  1. Everytime Biden and his comrades speak they just give Trump more votes. All they talk about is white supremacy and racism. They are such losers

  2. The Democratic strategist almost pulled it off, then blew it when he went to Trump's "racialized rhetoric". D'Souza rightfully reamed him on it. It is a bad sign for the Democrats when they can't help themselves, discrediting all their good points with Trump Derangement Syndrome. I don't know whether to be happy or sad. They used to be my party. Now, they've gone nuts.

  3. The race card isn't effective anymore because it has been way over played when there wasn't anything racist happening.

  4. I wonder why I am seeing so many Tom Steyer ads. Including when I was watching this Fox video. I am continually seeing Tom Steyer asking for me to send him one dollar, "so he can get into the debate stage." What's up with that?

  5. David brown what a complete pansy waste of a moron. You didn't this fake russia probe and 24/7 negative news coverage had any infuluence on the 2018 elections? Get your head out of your boyfriends behind we aren't stupid.

  6. Nothing is guaranteed did I take these Democrats and lately they're giving away the firearm get the vote and they don't care who they hiring

  7. I guess the chemtrails and pharmaceuticals are working. It does not take a genius to figure out m obama is the 2020 candidate.

  8. Umm…the dems took the house in 2018 by staging an illegal investigation and promoting what they knew was a conspiracy theory of their own creation as if it were fact, even stating that they had solid proof. Thats not merit.

  9. Call them progressives, socialist….whatever you want to but here is the deal….they only care about themselves and their "fame". They couldn't care less that they are destroying the country so why would anyone think they have a problem with destroying the democratic party.

  10. We've gone from "discussion and debate to threats and intimidation".

    And of course the media is right on board.

  11. None of the current Democratic candidates have a chance of unseating Pres. Trump. Tulsi Gabbard is close, but she won't get nomination.

  12. This was actually a good conversation. I don’t watch much Fox. Glad to see them bring in different points of view. MSNBC brings in “Republicans” that have the same point of view as everyone else on their programming

  13. Only Tulsi Gabbard can face Trump in Debates and may win/lose the election with a slight margin. The rest of the Dems including Bernie will be trounced by Trump.

  14. No such thing as progressive, that's a loaded marxists term they made up out of thin air for themselves, how are they progressive with backwards communists idealolgy, do not let these sick twisted people fool you no more

  15. You own your stupidity and nothing else. Yes can they do that with there address the fake news only the report for the one that that is blamed for Infestation that does not mean black white green or yellow infestation is packed with something that is not safe like that rats the dead animals the garbage can do you deny that

  16. They use the race card all the time and yet fake news still tries to blame President Trump on everything that goes wrong. HELLO 😜🤪

  17. Progressive? Progressing into what?Socialism and Communism?? No way not gonna happen in the USA..Love it or Leave it. 🙂

  18. Dems only landed House seats because of voter fraud or voter recounts and recounts and more recounts funny ballots just keep showing up wow amazing 😉

  19. The left is under the delusion that shame, fear, and political correctness are going to cause Americans to do what they want. They forgot history, the best argument is not name calling. Come 2020 you will learn.

  20. The facts are that President Trump, has done in 2 and a half years, more than any other ex presidents in 8 years. He is the only one, that can take us to the next great positive level……I'm Spanish, and voting for Donald Trump. MAGA 2020 more

  21. It seems to me after all that Fox News, have something in common with “mainstream” media, Trump and the DNC. They are all salivating for the thought of Biden being the nominee. Who knew?

  22. Dem's All can GO TO HELL , there EVIL as HELL it self , Also BRING BACK TUCKER ! or you loss vewers . TDS .

  23. Progressive Socialists? Ever hear of Venezuela?

    1992 – Venezuela became the 3rd richest country in Western Hemisphere
    1997 – Venezuela was 2nd largest purchaser of F-150's from America
    2001 – Venezuela votes for Socialist President/Government due to "Income Inequality"
    2004 – Private healthcare is completely Socialized in Venezuela
    2007 – All higher education in Venezuela becomes "Free"
    2009 – Socialists ban private ownership of guns by citizens
    2012 – Bernie Sanders praises Venezuela's "American Dream"
    2014 – Opposition leaders are imprisoned
    2016 – Food/healthcare shortages become wide spread
    2017 – Constitution and elections are suspended
    2019 – Unarmed citizens massacred by Venezuelan government

    In ONE generation of Socialist ("Progressive?") leadership, Civil War.

  24. Why are we even talking about the racist democrats? They have no chance. I'm already worried about who we are going to replace Trump in 2024. Those are some big shoes to fill.

  25. infestation (when talking about actual rats in Baltimore) = racially charged language…. remind me who the racists are again? The one talking about actual rats, or the people making the assertion that pointing out rat infestation is somehow related to race?

  26. you guys should really worry about your educational system, trump wont be your president forever and leftist radicalization will only escalate the longer they go without power.
    you can save future generations from socialist ideas but you must act now, the rotten seeds are already in great number.

  27. this reminds me of the Monty Python sketch what did the Romans ever do for US ! just changed the Romans to Donald J Trump

  28. When the Democratic platform is basically… stealing from legal citizens through high taxation so it can be distributed to people who break the law by crashing our border, and designs to give our money to everyone globally, it's not hard to come to the conclusion that NO Dem candidate would be a strong one!

  29. This representative of the progressive viewpoint is a white male. Why should we believe any white male when they all are supremacists?

  30. They should be more concerned about their weaknesses. They are sneaky, conniving, vindictive and they have no real platform other than get Trump at all cost. Of course, it's not their costs, they are using our money. No one in the Middle Class or those trying and working to get in it or better should vote Democrat in 2020.

  31. Hey Fox! Stop using the term "progressives" to refer to leftist scum. They're not liberals or progressives, those terms are obsolete. They're anarchists, communists, socialists, extremists, tyrants, deconstructionists, malcontents, deranged, regressives, felons and fascists, but definitely not progressives.

  32. That guy Brown is HOMOSEXUAL and white privileged. Does he know that his names are numbered as an angry old white man in the democratic party.

  33. The only Democrat I support in the upcoming election is Tulsi Gabbard, who actually has different and positive messages from the rest of the candidates instead of having Anti-Trump motives.

  34. 4:58 Ignoring the problem won't make it go away. In fact if you shut down an entire political idea out of the conversation you encourage precisely the same attacks that happened because you make people think they have no other option.

  35. But…but…anybody should be able to beat Trump. The entire establishment is opposed to Trump. Hollywood hates Trump, the main stream media hates Trump. How can anyone lose to Trump. Or… is the media lying about how popular Trump and his ideas really are?

  36. Wasn’t that dude recently under investigation for elder abuse/ and inappropriate behavior with a minor under 10??
    What’s on his hands.??
    Love D man

  37. Democrats should just donate the BILLION plus dollars they’ll squander on the 2020 presidential election. They don’t stand a chance.

  38. President Trump is an equal opportunity mud wrestler. That's too funny! 😂 This one's going in the archives to remember.

  39. How is it that ideas that take us backwards are called "progressive"? Sorry, Mr. Brown, the Dems did not win on ideas. They stuffed the ballots in Orange County, CA, and profited by swamp Republicans bailing out of the mid-terms.

  40. Nooooooo! now you're putting out there IF you right a manifesto you'll be heard… they should not be given a platform!!!!

  41. If I could cash in on all the white supremacy
    Going around id be rich
    It sounds like they are baking a cake
    Look
    Everyone has arrogance
    Everyone deep inside wants to be special
    Being special means supremacy , set apart,
    Hallow
    Yes I dont believe I am
    Yes I believe people feel inferior towards others
    This is not what the other person is doing
    It is the feelings of the inferior person
    Until the inferior person gets over it
    They will stay that way for the rest of their lives
    Just think in Gods eyes you are special and it all dissipates away
    This all comes from the heart
    When a person acts in these emotional mob rule throw downs
    they have to kick out their creator to do such a thing
    Just look at this picture of biden ginning up the crowd holding pitch forks and torches
    It reminds me of a lynching
    Its so stupid I cant take part in it
    If that makes me a white supremacist
    So be it
    Doing what is right in Gods eyes will change all of this
    Until then they will always act like this.
    Even if they had everything in the world it wont change them

  42. Methinks they doth PROTEST to much. The dems point the finger at the right when in FACT they are the ones who are racist, and haters and are at fault for all the things that they blame Trump and the right for.

  43. Yang 2020 for President because we need a responsible person who isn't just a facade aimed at re-election or political idealogy only.

  44. How is it every other group(race etc) can stand up for themselves(as they should)BUT when white people(and only white people) do it it's bad and racist. Shouldn't white people have the same right to be judged but the "content of their character" not the color of their skin??? I HAVE A DREAM..

  45. Lol, Dems cannot win on their merits. In 2018 the only reason Dems won here in Michigan is cause they put legalized marijuana on the ballot so they turned out in droves to pass that. who you think the majority of them voted for. I will vote Trump just because of what duetch and them say. They are so full of BS that I will never vote Dem again. Blame/shame politics cause it's the only way they can get anyone without a brain to vote for them. SMH.

  46. Dem getting to be some very serious people. About hurting who support trump. So now as 64 yr old man
    Now I hav to carry a knife or gun. Now that getting to be pretty SAD.

  47. The "Progressives" are maniacal now, can you imagine what, how and who they would be like if in the Presidential office? YIKES!!!

  48. Do you know how you can tell this is “programming”? Because they lump the entire left falsely under the label “progressive” instead of discussing in terms of their own partners in crime, who are the Clinton associated neoliberals versus those who are and have been rejecting the neoliberal take over of the left and are working to get them out of power.
    Trump, unfortunately, is not doing the same on the right…he instead has loaded up his administration with Reagan and Bush neocons, who are not enemies of the neoliberals, but work with them to maintain the status quo and further their interests at cost to us.
    Stop letting them keep us divided. They are shoving Biden at us, just as they tried to shove Jeb and Hillary last time. Trump gets big money donations because he serves the interests of the big money donors. The big donors often donate to the left and to the right! Why do you think that is?
    One candidate has refused to take that money. One. Bernie Sanders. The Clinton Dems hate him, calling him a not real Democrat. He has been an Independent and he actually respects the need for having a gun for hunting and for the reality of rural life with dangerous animals. He respects the people and the Constitution. No, he isn’t perfect…no human being is, but he actually cares about what is happening to us, unlike the lip service from the rest of the political crowd. He has worked in a bipartisan manner, but he calls BS on whomever deserves it.
    Please ignore the labels and look at his record…listen to him. And notice how much the “left” MSM hates him. MSNBC fired Ed Shultz for coving his campaign in the 2016 election after they ordered him not to. Why do you think that happened?

  49. 2:35 No No NO the democrats Won because we allow D.A the ability to Vote. There has been no reasonable thing the democrat leaders have done since they gained the house.

  50. No way any of those clowns ( my apologies to actual clowns ) are going to beat Trump in 2020. The man's a rock star, filling every seat at his rallies with ease, and saying what Americans need to hear, rather than what he THINKS they want to hear. He's a political barroom brawler, the real deal, unlike the polished but phoney individuals on the left, who, I like to believe, most Americans can see for what they truly are. Let them have their little fantasies about "slaying the giant" in 2020. Not gonna happen. If Hillary Clinton, who was supposed to be virtually "unbeatable", couldn't beat Trump, then what chance do THEY have? They might as well start screaming at the sky, and make plans to "move to Canada" ( yeah, right ) right now.

  51. The dems forget the silent majority and they are more now , they are Legion . They will tip the scale once again for Trump

  52. What is it about "illegal" that these politicians don't understand?? If they don't understand the constitution then they are not qualified to serve. Communism is not progressive. Been done and deemed a failure. Such are the Democrats.
