PBS NewsHour full episode August 12, 2019


AMNA NAWAZ, PBS NEWSHOUR ANCHOR: Good evening. I’m Amna Nawaz. Judy Woodruff is away. On the “NewsHour” tonight: Protestors in Hong Kong bring one of the world’s
busiest airports to a standstill, as fears grow over a Chinese military crackdown. Then, new threats of extinction as the Trump
administration changes the rules of the Endangered Species Act. And on the ground at the Iowa state fair,
where butter sculptures and 2020 presidential hopefuls vie for voters’ attention. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I agree with what Biden
has to say, but I also agree with Warren and what Sanders has to say. So I’m right now, I’m kind of conflicted. (END VIDEO CLIP) AMNA NAWAZ: All that and more on tonight’s
“PBS NewsHour”. (BREAK) AMNA NAWAZ: Air traffic in Hong Kong was brought
to a ground stop after a fourth day of protests inside the international airport. More than 150 flights were canceled. Thousands of anti-government demonstrators
occupied the terminal, holding signs and chanting calls for democratic reforms. They’re demanding the resignation of the territory’s
chief executive Carrie Lam, and an investigation into police use of force. We’ll have more on this after the news summary. The Trump administration finalized rollbacks
on the Nixon-era Endangered Species Act today. The changes end automatic end automatic endangered
specifies protections for those classified as threatened. They’ll also allow economic cost to factor
into whether or not a species should be protected. Conservation groups and at least 10 attorneys
general have warned the move could put more wildlife at risk for extinction. We’ll take a closer look at the impact of
today’s rollback later in the program. In economic news: a sell-off in the banking
and technology sectors caused stocks to plunge on Wall Street today. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 391
points to close at 25,896. The Nasdaq fell more than 95 points, and the
S&P 500 slid 36. In Eastern China, meanwhile, the death toll
from a weekend typhoon has now risen to at least 45 people. Rescue workers are still evacuating residents
stranded in buildings after their streets were submerged by floodwaters. Crews have been working to clean up debris
left behind. Meanwhile, in southern India, days of torrential
rain and mudslides have now killed nearly 100 people and displaced 400,000 others. In the worst-hit state of Kerala, muddy water
filled the roads as rescue workers in boats helped people evacuate. At least one crocodile found refuge on the
roof of a submerged home. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) AJEET PATTANKUDI, RESCUED LOCAL (through translator):
It has been at least five to six days. Everybody is stuck in flooded villages. Animals and others all are stuck there. People are facing a lot of problems. Water has come from all directions. Water has entered all the houses. (END VIDEO CLIP) AMNA NAWAZ: Local officials in the state of
Karnataka said the flooding was the worst they’ve seen in 45 years. In Congo, two experimental drugs are showing
promise in the fight against Ebola. They’re part of a clinical trial that began
last November. The therapies are the first of their kind
to treat patients who’ve already contracted the highly contagious disease. People who received the drugs shortly after
becoming infected had a 90 percent survival rate. The Ebola outbreak in Congo killed more than
1,800 people over the past year. Back in this country, a friend of a gunman
who killed nine people outside of bar in Dayton, Ohio, told investigators he purchased the
body armor and ammunition that were used in the rampage. Federal prosecutors unsealed charges against
Ethan Kollie today. But they emphasized there was no evidence
Kollie knew about the shooter’s plans. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) BENJAMIN GLASSMAN, U.S. ATTORNEY FOR THE SOUTHERN
DISTRICT OF OHIO: In the course of this ongoing investigation into the August 4th shooting,
anyone who is discovered to have any criminal culpability for any act that is ultimately
discovered through the investigation or contributed in any way to the events on August 4 is going
to be held criminally responsible. (END VIDEO CLIP) AMNA NAWAZ: Kollie was charged today with
lying on a federal firearms form used for an unrelated gun purchase. Also today, lawyers for comedian Bill Cosby
appeared before a Pennsylvania appeals court today, in a bid to overturn his sexual assault
conviction. They argued a judge denied Cosby a fair trial
by letting additional accusers testify in a case that concerned only one allegation. The 82-year-old Cosby is now serving a prison
sentence of three to 10 years for drugging and assaulting a woman in 2004. A decision on the appeal is not expected for
several months. Still to come on the “NewsHour”: how will
the Chinese government respond to protestors in Hong Kong shutting down a major airport;
questions and conspiracy theories in the wake of billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s
death; the Trump administration moves to radically reduce the amount of legal immigration to
the U.S.; Democratic hopefuls head to the storied Iowa state fair and our politics Monday
team examines the state of the race. Plus much more. (BREAK) AMNA NAWAZ: Hong Kong’s airport was shut down
today, occupied by thousands of protesters. The authorities in Beijing again struck an
ominous note, comparing the mass protests to terrorism, and, as thousands of Chinese
security personnel mustered on Hong Kong’s border, Beijing declared there should be,
quote, no leniency or mercy for the protesters. Jonathan Miller of Independent Television
News reports. (BEGIN VIDEOTAPE) JONATHAN MILLER, INDEPENDENT TELEVISION NEWS
REPORTER: In air thick with tear gas, inside an underground station, Hong Kong police last
night resorting to ever harsher tactics. These protestors had been attempting to flee. Across the harbor, outside a Kowloon police
station, a protester was shot in the eye with a (INAUDIBLE) from a police shot gun. Despite wearing protective goggles, her eyeball
was ruptured and there are fears she could lose her eye. Earlier in the same location, police fried
tear gas from inside the station. A battle ensued, as protestors laid siege. Then this. A policeman inside suffered burns to his legs. Today, an infuriated Beijing lashed out, branding
this terrorism. The state council, Chinas cabinet, ratcheting
up the ruthlessness of the rhetoric, leaving no room now to back down. These were serious and sinister crimes, it
said, protestors reckless. Things had reached what the spokesman called
a critical juncture. YANG GUANG, SPOKESMAN, HONG KONG AND MACAU
AFFAIRS OFFICE (through translator): Such violent crimes must be resolutely cracked
down on, in accordance with the law. No leniency, no mercy, we strongly support
the Hong Kong police as they enforce the law strictly to bring the criminals to justice
as soon as possible. JONATHAN MILLER: There’s been mounting alarm
in Hong Kong, over whether China might order military onto the streets. But today, communist party papers released
footage complete with sinister soundtrack, showing convoy of people’s armed police
heading to Shenzhen on Hong Kong’s northern border. These paramilitary under command of central
military council headed by President Xi Jinping himself have been used to put down protest,
often brutally, in other regions. Growing outrage over police brutality led
to thousands of demonstrators converging today on Hong Kong International Airport, one of
the busiest in the world, forcing the total cancellation of all flights in and out. It’s the protestors that were brutal today,
the police said, exhibiting weapons they said were confiscated. Most Hong Kongers won’t buy that now, the
trust is broken. There are 28 years still to go before China
can take full control of Hong Kong. But Beijing looks impatient to bring the territory
under its authoritarian aegis. Among Hong Kongers, banks and businesses,
a quiet but rising panic. (END VIDEOTAPE) (BREAK) AMNA NAWAZ: Attorney General William Barr
today sharply criticized the management of the Manhattan federal jail where wealthy financier
Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his cell this weekend. As John Yang reports, Epstein’s death does
not mean the end to the federal sex-trafficking investigation that led to his indictment. JOHN YANG, PBS NEWSHOUR CORRESPONDENT: Amna,
in his remarks today, the attorney general also pledged that any co-conspirators should
not rest easy. The victims, he said, deserve justice and
they will get it. So where does the case go now? Jessica Roth is a professor at Yeshiva University’s
Cardozo School of Law, and joins us from New York. Jessica Roth, thanks. What do prosecutors in the case of the United
States versus Jeffrey Epstein do now that Jeffrey Epstein is dead? JESSICA ROTH, YESHIVA UNIVERSITY: Well, the
case against Jeffrey Epstein himself will be dismissed because he’s now deceased and
you can’t proceed with a criminal case against a person who’s dead, but the overall criminal
investigation will continue. Over the weekend, U.S. attorney for the southern
district of New York, Geoff Berman issued a statement in which he made clear that the
criminal investigation would continue and he said that his office would continue to
stand for the victims, stand up for the victims, and, in particular, he pointed to the fact
that Jeffrey Epstein had been charged in one count of the indictment with conspiring with
others to engage in sex trafficking and that’s significant because the law of conspiracy
requires proof that two or more persons agreed to commit a crime. And what that means is that Mr. Berman was
prepared to prove in court that at least one other person and possibly others were engaged
in a criminal conspiracy with Jeffrey Epstein. JOHN YANG: Well, we know that in the Flor
— that highly criticized Florida non-prosecution agreement, there are named — were named four
potential co-conspirators who were not charged, and in this New York indictment, there were
three people cited though not named who also participated in this. Do you think we’re likely to see indictments
against those folks coming up in the coming days? JESSICA ROTH: I don’t know about the timeline,
but certainly from everything that’s been indicated by the U.S. attorney’s office and
what’s been publicly reported, it would seem that they have significant evidence against
other people. As you mentioned in the indictment, there
are people identified not by name but in terms of the role that they played. So, clearly, the U.S. attorney’s office has
evidence against those other people and they will be pursuing that investigation and looking
also at the evidence that was collected during the search of Jeffrey Epstein’s home that
was done on the day of his arrest to see what that yields at the involvement of co-conspirators
and accomplices. It’s been reported that his pilots have been
subpoenaed for their testimony, and they would have significant information about who was
else may have been involved in arranging the travel for the sex trafficking. So I think we need to be patient as the investigators
reorient to a case in which Jeffrey Epstein will not sit at the table, but Mr. Berman
made clear that the investigation is ongoing. JOHN YANG: And even without a conviction,
can prosecutors go after his assets or in this case, I guess, his estate? JESSICA ROTH: Yes. So there’s still a process in which the U.S.
attorney’s office, through its U.S. attorneys office, can go after assets that were used
to facilitate the crimes that have been alleged here. So, for example, his Manhattan town house,
allegedly, was involved — was used as a place where some of the unlawful activity occurred. If his properties in the Virgin Island were
involved. Those also could be sought through what’s
called a civil asset forfeiture proceeding. The advantage of that, first, is that it can
be handled by the U.S. attorney’s office, and any assets that were recovered distributed
to victims for restitution through the federal government. It also allows a proof by preponderance of
evidence standard which is a civil standard of proof rather than the criminal beyond a
reasonable doubt standard. It allows offers an advantage frankly, of
allowing the narrative of what unfolded in his crimes to be told, because much of the
same proof would be offered that would have been offered in a criminal trial against Jeffrey
Epstein. JOHN YANG: And, of course, this doesn’t do
anything to the civil lawsuits that might be coming from accusers? JESSICA ROTH: No, those can proceed as well. So, the accusers have multiple avenues through
which they can seek some measure of justice. None will be the same, of course, as actually
confronting Jeffrey Epstein in a criminal case. But through the civil lawsuits, they can pursue
his estate. As I mentioned, the civil asset forfeiture
proceedings against specific assets that were used to facilitate his crimes is another avenue
of potential relief, and then, of course, as we discussed a moment ago, there’s a possibility
of criminal proceedings against others who were his accomplices and co-conspirators. JOHN YANG: Jessica Roth of the Cardozo School
of Law, thank you very much. ROTH: Thank you. (BREAK) AMNA NAWAZ: The Trump administration announced
today that it plans to implement new immigration rules. As Yamiche Alcindor explains, it’s one of
the most aggressive steps yet to limit legal immigration. (BEGIN VIDEOTAPE) YAMICHE ALCINDOR, PBS WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT:
Today’s new rule from the Trump administration limits who will be eligible for a green card
in the United States. Under current law, immigrants are already
required to prove that they are not what the government deems a, quote, public charge. Today, Ken Cuccinelli, the acting head of
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, announced the plans. He said any immigrants who use– or who have
deemed likely to use a number of public benefits may not be eligible for legal status. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) KEN CUCCINELLI, ACTING DIRECTOR, U.S. CITIZENSHIP
AND IMMIGRATION SERVICES: The benefit to taxpayers is a long term benefit of seeking to ensure
that our immigration system is bringing people to join us as American citizens as legal permanent
residents first who can stand on their own two feet, who will not be reliant on the welfare
system, especially in the age of the modern welfare state which is so expansive and expensive
frankly. (END VIDEO CLIP) YAMICHE ALCINDOR: The new rule includes services
afforded to legal immigrants under current law, such as housing assistance, Medicaid
and food stamps. To break it all down, I’m joined by Theresa
Cardinal Brown. She is the director of immigration and cross
border policy at the Bipartisan Policy Center in Washington. Thanks so much, Theresa, for being here. Talk to me about how this will impact immigrants
and the legal immigration process in the United States and who will be most impacted by this
new rule. THERESA CARDINAL BROWN, BIPARTISAN POLICY
CENTER: Sure. So, the rule applies to those who are applying
to get green cards in the United States. And, so, one of the long-standing issues in
immigration laws as you mentioned is whether or not someone would become a public charge. That has been broadly defined as somebody
who has been mostly dependent on the government. It’s a criteria that has been, I’d say, used
sparingly, especially over the last couple of decades but has been a priority of this
administration to implement. So, it would look whether or not people who
are applying to be green cardholders have used public benefits that they might be eligible
for. It would apply to current immigrants or citizens
who are looking to sponsor others to come on green cards, and it would apply to some
non-immigrants who are looking to extend or change their status as well. YAMICHE ALCINDOR: What can you tell us about
how much immigrants use public benefits in comparison to native born Americans. THERESA CARDINAL BROWN: So, we did a literature
review a couple of years about who uses public benefits, and what we found is, in general,
individual immigrants use benefits less often and at lower rates than U.S. citizens do,
but some immigrant-headed households, particularly those with U.S. citizen children may use more
because the children are eligible for benefits that maybe the immigrant parents are not. YAMICHE ALCINDOR: Critics of the new rule
say this is the Trump administration again unfairly targeting immigrants. There are talks there are going to be swift
legal challenges to this. How does this new rule really factor into
how the Trump administration has overall used its immigration agenda to target different
groups? THERESA CARDINAL BROWN: Well, particularly
its regulatory agenda has been about legal immigrants, and one of the things that we
have seen is that a lot of the regulatory changes that have been implemented have been
about reducing eligibility for legal immigration, reducing the number of people who can qualified
for legal immigration or slowing down the legal immigration process. YAMICHE ALCINDOR: You said the term public
charge had been kind of implemented and enforced sparingly. Tell us a little bit about the history of
the term public charge and how certain immigrant groups have been subject to that term and
what it’s meant overall and in the years coming. THERESA CARDINAL BROWN: Well, the idea of
preventing the poor or paupers from immigrating has been around basically since the beginning
of the republic. Initially when the United States was created,
states had control over who could immigrant and would look for people who they thought
might not be eligible to — able to work or support themselves. In the 1800s, Congress passed the sort of
uniform immigration rules, the Chinese Escalation Act that included this public charge rule. But, over the years, it has been very subjectively
enforced. So, for example, during the Ellis Island days,
they would look whether or not they thought somebody was physically able of performing
work, did they have family members already here, sponsors, did they bring any money with
them. So it was sort of on the fly. This has been a priority of this administration
to get a public charge rule published since the administration came in. An executive order was issued very early in
the presidency asking for this to be done. So, it’s new in that we don’t know exactly
how it’s going to be implemented. It’s still a relatively subjected standard,
especially that prospective looking part, is an immigrant likely to be become a public
charge? That’s where it’s a little more iffy because
they’re looking at things like, does the immigrant have a work history? What’s their education level? Do they have any health issues that might
affect whether or not they would become a public charge? We have to kind of see how that would be implemented,
but we’ve already seen some of these because consulates overseas have been implementing
some of this through the visa review process over the last year, already. YAMICHE ALCINDOR: Now, I want to turn to a
major story from last week. Some 680 immigrants were arrested during immigration
raids at food processing centers in Mississippi. What goes into such raids and what legal consequences
if any might employers face? THERESA CARDINAL BROWN: So, a raid like that
is — that size and scope has probably been in process for many, many months. It probably was based on some information
that Immigration and Customs Enforcement received that those employers are employing undocumented
immigrants, then they also collaterally arrested undocumented immigrants they found on the
premises. Now, ICE will go through all that documents
that they found during those search warrants to see if they have enough evidence to proceed
with prosecutions of those employers. So, we may see some prosecutions, but historically,
it’s been much more difficult to prosecute employers for knowingly hiring undocumented
immigrants than it has been to arrest the undocumented immigrants themselves and see
them deported. YAMICHE ALCINDOR: Well, lots of immigration
news. Thanks so much for joining us, Theresa Cardinal
Brown of the Bipartisan Policy Center. THERESA CARDINAL BROWN: Thank you. (END VIDEOTAPE) AMNA NAWAZ: With six months before the first-in-the-nation
Iowa caucuses, more than 20 presidential hopefuls descended on the Hawkeye State this weekend. As Lisa Desjardins reports, voters were navigating
crowds of people and the crowded candidate field. (BEGIN VIDEOTAPE) LISA DESJARDINS, PBS NEWSHOUR CORRESPONDENT:
Welcome to the Iowa state fair, a mix of high political stakes and high blood sugar all
on a stick, or on a soapbox. JOE BIDEN (D), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Hello,
Iowa! JOHN DELANEY (D), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:
You have a very important choice to make. SEN. CORY BOOKER (D-NJ), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:
It’s going to be a test for all of us. SEN. BERNIE SANDERS (I-VT), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:
This is the moment we bring our people together. REP. TULSI GABBARD (D-HI), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:
That’s why I’m here asking for your support. LISA DESJARDINS: The soapbox, where candidates
each get 20 minutes, has never held more presidential weight. Twenty-three contenders, including one GOP
challenger to President Trump, will come and go throughout the fair. And with each one comes a walking mosh pit
of press attention. None more so than former Vice President Joe
Biden, who barely had room at his own press conference. Biden has been here before, in failed runs
in 1988 and 2008. But he’s never had the lead in Iowa until
now. And it’s a large, nearly ten-point lead. UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Go Joe! LISA DESJARDINS: His supporters feel they
know him. They trust him. LASHA ROBERTS: I like Joe Biden. I enjoyed him when he was with Obama and stuff,
and so I think he would definitely be a good candidate for sure. LISA DESJARDINS: But opponents question if
Biden sparks enough passion. How do you do that? JOE BIDEN: Look at the polls. So far, so good. I do it by being me. Look, no one’s ever including reporters cover
me all the time. No one’s ever doubted I mean what I say. The problem is sometimes I say all that I
mean. MATT PAUL, IOWA DEMOCRATIC STRATEGIST: It’s
everything. LISA DESJARDINS: Matt Paul has deep roots
with the Democratic Party in Iowa. He ran Hillary Clinton’s winning Iowa campaign
in 2016. Despite Biden’s early lead, Paul says the
state is still up for grabs. MATT PAUL: He’s popular here, but he has work
to do. He’s got to be here more. I think he’s got to talk about the future. LISA DESJARDINS: Some voters are more blunt
about Biden. TAYLOR WYSS: If he was the primary candidate,
I would still vote for him. But I don’t want him to be the candidate. I want someone new and fresh. SEN. KAMALA HARRIS (D-CA), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:
Good morning, good morning. LISA DESJARDINS: Among those angling as new
and fresh is California Senator Kamala Harris, third in Iowa polls. Her staff is energetic and her fair crowd
was large, but she dipped in the last poll here, and admits she’s still building. KAMALA HARRIS: We have over 65 staff in Iowa. And, you know, there are people in this race
who have had national profiles for many years. I’m still introducing myself to people. SEN. ELIZABETH WARREN (D-MA), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:
2020 is our big chance. LISA DESJARDINS: Quickly surging here is Massachusetts
Senator Elizabeth Warren, now second in the Iowa polls, and captain of what many see as
the best organized ground game in the state, with fired-up volunteers like Joie Otting. JOIE OTTING: I think it’s important that we
just take a new, almost radical — not to call Elizabeth Warren radical — but take
a big change in direction. LISA DESJARDINS: This is a problem for Bernie
Sanders. BERNIE SANDERS: Let me make a major announcement:
pretty good. LISA DESJARDINS: The Vermont senator is still
popular in Iowa, but losing the most ground to Warren. Over one million people will come to the Iowa
state fair. And that is a prime political audience, especially
for the many Democrats trying to break into the top tier. The problem: there are just so many candidates. And they’re seemingly everywhere — flipping
pork, pouring beer, and counting corn kernels. Voters are overwhelmed. MISSY PRICE: I’m a registered Democrat. I’m an open-ticket voter, but I have no
clue what I’m going to do. UNIDENTIFIED MAE: Buttigieg. Biden. GRANT WALLER: Biden. I like Beto, but we’ll see how it goes with
that. KEVIN CAVALLIN: I agree with what Biden has
to say. But I also agree with Warren and what Sanders
has to say. So, I’m right now, I’m kind of conflicted. LISA DESJARDINS: And thus, candidates are
self-separating in groups. The Midwesterners. How do you break out? SEN. AMY KLOBUCHAR (D-MN), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:
I think you do it the old fashioned way. You just keep reaching out to people and you
meet people. REP. TIM RYAN (D-OH), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: When
people hear what I have to say, especially coming from Ohio and being in Iowa, it’s very
similar culturally. LISA DESJARDINS: Those focused on personal
contact. SEN. KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND (D-NY), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:
I’ve had a lot of town halls, lots of events at breweries, and it makes a difference because
people can get to know me, I can get to know them, make sure I’m lifting up their voices. TULSI GABBARD: I’m really focused on is
do what we’re doing out here today really getting down into communities here in Iowa
and New Hampshire and other parts of the country. JULIAN CASTRO (D), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:
I believe that as the race gets smaller and smaller, people pay more attention to the
candidates. LISA DESJARDINS: And the I-can-get-it-done
policy folks. ANDREW YANG (D), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: The
way we break out is by just keep hammering the message the American people that we need
solutions not sound bites, and that it’s not their imagination. JOHN DELANEY: When the field shrinks, they’re
going to start focusing on ideas, who’s got the best ideas, who’s the best person to beat
Trump. And that’s when I think I can break through. JOHN HICKENLOOPER (D), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:
I’ve just got to keep finding fresh ways to talk about what we did in Colorado, and
most importantly, how we brought people together. LISA DESJARDINS: And then there’s New Jersey
Senator Cory Booker, who says he’s already rising in less-noticed metrics like endorsements
and staff. CORY BOOKER: The people that have gone on
are people more like me, the people like Jimmy Carter or Barack Obama or Bill Clinton, are
people who were considered long shots this far out. But what were they were doing was they were
building incredible organizations here in Iowa. LISA DESJARDINS: There’s another issue for
Democrats in Iowa, beating President Trump in a state he won by nine points. DAN PUTNEY: I like Trump. I like Trump. He’s just… He’s just a guy. He’s not a politician. He’s just a guy like — like me. LISA DESJARDINS: Here, the move by Democrats
to the left for the primary is pushing some away. PATRICIA PUTNEY: They’re so liberal. They just don’t even want to move on in this
world. They want everything to be socialism. They want everything to be calm and nice and
everybody loves everybody. But you know sometimes you got to get out
and get a little aggressive. LISA DESJARDINS: At the Iowa state fair this
week, scenes of whirling Americana, rows of fried foods and some 40,000 prize ribbons. But, for candidates — far less reward. Traditionally, just the top three finishers
in Iowa are thought to have a real shot at the nomination. The fair marks the end of summer for the state,
but it’s the beginning of the real heat in the race for president. For the “PBS NewsHour”, I’m Lisa Desjardins
at the Iowa state fair in Des Moines. (END VIDEOTAPE) AMNA NAWAZ: Of course, the Iowa state fair
stretches on until next Sunday (AUDIO GAP). We’re here now for our “Politics Monday”
segment. I’m joined by Shawna Thomas and Tamara Keith. Thanks to you both for being here. (CROSSTALK) SHAWNA THOMAS, VICE NEWS: Good with you. AMNA NAWAZ: So, no fried food, no butter sculptures,
but a lot of politics to talk about. SHAWNA THOMAS: Yes. AMNA NAWAZ: The Iowa state fair, Tam, is supposed
to be an opportunity for the candidates to break away from the pack, take a chance to
shine if they can or kind of continue in the middle and fight for air. Did anyone stand out to you over the last
few days? TAMARA KEITH, NPR: So, I was there. I was technically on vacation. I did eat fried foods but also — I can’t
turn off — SHAWNA THOMAS: You played political tourist. TAMARA KEITH: I played political tourist. You can’t turn it off. SHAWNA THOMAS: And so, what I saw is that
candidates like Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren who are not at the very top in the
polls drew very large crowds of very interested people who came early and stayed late and
watched their speeches. In fact, for Warren, when she was speaking
at the soap box, you actually couldn’t walk past the entire grand passageway or whatever
it’s called. The big road in the middle of the fairgrounds
was just completely congested with people who had stopped to watch her speak. And so, that — and that sort of reflects
what you’ve seen in the polls, which is that Elizabeth Warren, you know, taking as many
selfies as she has to take at every event, has begun to sort of notch things up in Iowa,
I believe, in the latest Iowa poll. She’s in seconds behind Joe Biden. AMNA NAWAZ: Shawna, every selfie matters at
this stage but it’s worth reminding people still over six months away before anyone in
Iowa casts a vote. How much does this matter, this cycle? SHAWNA THOMAS: I mean, how much does the Iowa
state fair matter in any cycle? AMNA NAWAZ: Ever, yes. SHAWNA THOMAS: The thing is, what our correspondent
on Vice News was telling me and she was out there as well was there was so much media
there that she was confused as to whether the candidates were actually able to speak
to Iowans one on one. And so, yes, you have “The Des Moines Register”
soapbox. We all enjoy seeing that. It’s a good way to get for a candidate to
get their stump speech out there. But also, the point of the Iowa state fair
in visiting sort of historically has been to try to have those one-on-one interactions
with Iowans. AMNA NAWAZ: Right. SHAWNA THOMAS: And the sort of like, and the
thing is, you know, what one guy told us was like, all Iowans are here. It’s not just a Democratic Party event. It’s not some special interest event. You could run into anyone, but it’s also kind
of hard apparently to do with the amount of media that’s there. But hopefully, some of them took advantage
of having conversations with people who would not necessarily be able to see them or want
them to see them like at a general Democratic event or something like that. AMNA NAWAZ: So, they want to get as much as
attention as they can. SHAWNA THOMAS: Yes. AMNA NAWAZ: Not all attention is good attention,
though. One of the story lines we’ve been talking
about is how former Vice President Joe Biden has done so far in some of these events. I want to play for you, guys, just a couple
of quick sound bytes. They’re from two different events. One from Thursday, one from Saturday, but
these are the kinds of comments from Mr. Biden that are getting attention right now. Take a listen. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) JOE BIDEN: Poor kids are just as bright and
just as talented as white kids, wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids. (APPLAUSE) JOE BIDEN: I watched what happened to those
kids from Parkland came up to see me when I was vice president. (END VIDEO CLIP) AMNA NAWAZ: So, you know, Tam, we’re calling
these as gaffes in this conversation, right? He misspeaks. He corrects himself. Sometimes he has to come back and correct
himself a little later. Is it fair criticism of him right now? TAMARA KEITH: It is Joe Biden. Joe Biden has called himself a gaffe machine. He — this is sort of a trademark. He does this. He’s done this his entire political career. When he announced that he was going to run
for president, that he was running for president, you knew that this was going to happen and
it has continued to happen all along. One thing that’s been sort of puzzling to
me is why this weekend is the weekend that everyone started to talk about, well, will
Joe Biden’s gaffes matter? And I think that the way they could matter
is if voters decide that it’s an indicator of something larger, if it taps into a concern
that voters have perhaps about his age or some other thing like that. But that Joe Biden would say the wrong words
or stumble is not new. SHAWNA THOMAS: Yes. AMNA NAWAZ: What do you think, Shawna? SHAWNA THOMAS: But I think the thing is, when
he said the wrong words and stumbled historically when we both covered him before, it’s Uncle
Joe. It’s, like, OK, it’s Joe Biden, he’s great,
look, whatever. Much like in some ways the awkward touching
and that kind of thing. But when you are the frontrunner for — to
be president and everyone thinks you may actually have a shot at getting the Democratic nomination,
everyone is going to pay even more attention to every little stumble, and I do think that
is going to get worse. Now, some of why this has been highlighted
is Trump’s team is the one who sort of pushed this narrative event. I am interested to see if like a lower tier
presidential candidate goes along this narrative, like a one who’s actually on the Democratic
side, because, of course, President Trump is going to push this. He wants to beat Biden. He thinks Biden is the guy to beat. But does — do the Cory Bookers of the world
or does someone else start trying to talk about Joe Biden’s age and play these gaffes
or anything like that, does it cause Democratic infighting? And I think that’s something to be more worried
more about at this stage with Biden. AMNA NAWAZ: You mentioned President Trump,
but I want to ask you about something else. Over the weekend, he retweeted a post from
a comedian linking the Clintons to the death of Jeffrey Epstein, the accused sex trafficker
in jail this weekend. We’re not showing it here because it is a
conspiracy theory. It’s baseless. It traces back years, just some far right
conspiracy theories. Shawna, of all the things the president could
have been tweeting about this weekend, why this? SHAWNA THOMAS: Because he — I mean, I can’t
get into the president’s head and I can’t pretend to be in the president’s head, but
he saw something, it attacked the Clintons, he is still attacking the Clintons, people
still cheer “lock her up” at his events, at his campaign events. And, you know what? He pressed retweet. And this is just what he does. He has spread other conspiracy theories. We can go all the way back to Barack Obama’s
birth certificate. Now, yes, he could have been tweetings about
other things like, hey, does the Bureau of Prisons have staffing problems? What is going on there? There are some real issues with Epstein and
will his victims be able to be able to see justice, and that kind of thing. But, you know, this is what the president
likes to do and now we’re talking about it. AMNA NAWAZ: Tammy, with 63 million Twitter
followers, there’s — you know, I have been in countries where conspiracy theories and
misinformation campaigns are very active, it has an impact. Do you worry about that here? Is there concern? TAMARA KEITH: We are also in a country where
conspiracy theories have been very active especially in recent years, especially with
social media, and President Trump has at times retweeted or otherwise trafficked in conspiracy
theories. So, that he’s doing this now is not really
out of character. It’s something that he does. And I think that we are in a time in this
country where conspiracy theories, for whatever reason, are particularly sticky, and especially
on the right but not entirely on the right, also very much on the left conspiracy theories
have taken hold. And so, this is — this is sort of — this
is where we are. SHAWNA THOMAS: And the question really — I
mean, the larger question that comes out of this conspiracy thing is what do we do about
social media? And are we going to hold social media companies
accountable for the spread of things that are not true? And this is something that Congress has been
talking about and they have been trying to tackle it, but they haven’t done anything
yet. I think this reiterates that that conversation
is really important. AMNA NAWAZ: Another conversation to have at
another time. SHAWNA THOMAS: There will be so many. AMNA NAWAZ: Shawna Thomas of “Vice News”,
Tamara Keith of NPR, thanks to you both. TAMARA KEITH: You’re welcome. SHAWNA THOMAS: Thanks. (BREAK) AMNA NAWAZ: The Trump administration is making
some of the broadest changes in years to the Endangered Species Act, the landmark law signed
by President Richard Nixon that’s been credited with saving iconic species like the bald eagle
and the grizzly bear. William Brangham explores what today’s changes
could mean. (BEGIN VIDEOTAPE) WILLIAM BRANGHAM, PBS NEWSHOUR CORRESPONDENT:
That’s right, Amna. The Endangered Species Act currently protects
about 1,600 species in the U.S. by limiting the activities that could harm those species. And it’s been overwhelmingly successful in
protecting those plants and animals. But the act has been a target for Republican
lawmakers and industry groups for years. They argue these protections cost too many
jobs and too much money. Now, the Trump administration is proposing
changes that one Democratic lawmaker referred to as taking a wrecking ball to the act. Joining me now is “New York Times” environmental
reporter Lisa Friedman. Lisa Friedman, welcome back to the “NewsHour”. LISA FRIEDMAN, ENVIRONMENTAL REPORTER, THE
NEW YORK TIMES: Thanks so much for having me. WILLIAM BRANGHAM: Before we get to the administration’s
proposed changes, what can we say — what species can we credit are alive today because
of the Endangered Species Act? LISA FRIEDMAN: The Endangered Species Act
has helped to save from extinction some of the most well-known plant and animal species
in the country, the bald eagle, the grizzly bear, the humpback whale, are all species
that owe a tremendous amount to the protection of the Endangered Species Act. WILLIAM BRANGHAM: As I mentioned before, the
Republican lawmakers for decades have hated this law, wanted to dial it back. Industry groups said the same, saying it’s
too costly, it’s not really helping as much as it is hurting our industries. What is the Trump administration proposing
with these new changes? LISA FRIEDMAN: There are a number of changes
in the final rules that were issued today. A number of them are ones that environmental
groups fear will severely weaken protections for plant and animal species. I list just two of the big ones for now. One of them is a measure that would weaken
the ability of scientists to protect species against the threats of climate change. Another is a phrase that would introduce the
ability of the federal government to include economic analysis. WILLIAM BRANGHAM: An analysis, meaning if
we’re going to protect X species that might cost us Y amount of money. LISA FRIEDMAN: Absolutely right. Currently, the way the law reads, scientists
can only consider one thing when they’re deciding whether or not to list species as
threatened or endangered, the science. Is it threatened? Should it be listed? That language is going to be eliminated, and
what replaces it will give the federal government the ability to conduct analyses just as you
described to find out whether listing a species will cost money, will cost money and perhaps
lost development. The Interior Department has insisted that
this won’t change anything, that decisions will still be made purely on the basis of
science. They just want to have the information and
be able to know the information when these listing possibilities come up. WILLIAM BRANGHAM: These changes are coming
amidst a lot of news about endangered species. We saw the U.N. a few months ago put out this
report indicating that upwards of a million plant and animal species globally could be
threatened if we don’t change our ways. LISA FRIEDMAN: Yes. WILLIAM BRANGHAM: Help me understand what
the administration is arguing here. Are they saying, here in the U.S., we are
doing endangered species just fine or are they saying we can do it in a better way? What are they arguing? LISA FRIEDMAN: Yes. I think, you know, what we heard from the
administration is it’s possible to both be stewards of the environment while also cutting
red tape, and their argument is that that is what they’re doing with this regulation
today. WILLIAM BRANGHAM: Is there a sense that if
these changes go through, any particular species that might be impacted? LISA FRIEDMAN: You know, one of the ones we
hear about a lot are species that are affected by climate change and, you know, one that
comes to mind easily is the polar bear. The polar bear habitat is going to be affected
dramatically by climate change. WILLIAM BRANGHAM: Their sea ice and their
habitat disappears year after year. LISA FRIEDMAN: Exactly. Some of these changes are far into the future. Whether this new regulation hamstrings scientists’
ability to take action to protect these species is something that the environmental groups
are very worried about. WILLIAM BRANGHAM: We know these are proposed
rules, probably going to be some lawsuits, right? What’s the future look like? LISA FRIEDMAN: Today, we heard from the attorneys
general of Massachusetts and California, they have vowed to sue. Senator Udall, who you mentioned, said that
he’s going to be looking at legislative measures to block this in Congress. It seems with the makeup of this Congress,
it’s going to be very hard to pass anything that would block this legislatively. So, I think the — some of these questions
about whether this regulation will stand the test of time are going to be answered in the
courts. WILLIAM BRANGHAM: Lisa Friedman of “The New
York Times,” thank you. LISA FRIEDMAN: Thank you. (END VIDEOTAPE) AMNA NAWAZ: Nancy Armour is a sports columnist
for “USA Today”. In her latest piece, Armour said, quote: Simone
Biles isn’t just best gymnast of her time, she’s an athlete for the ages. She joins me now from Chicago. Nancy, thanks for being with us. So, the triple-double is two flips with three
twists. Just how big a deal is this move? NANCY ARMOUR, SPORTS COLUMNIST, USA TODAY:
It is huge. It’s the — the physics of it alone are really
unbelievable, almost. I mean, consider the fact that she is turning
herself end over end twice, but at the same time, she is twisting her body around three
times. You have to have the physics of that exactly
right or you basically will stop in the air and kind of plop to the ground. And she also has to know exactly where she
is in the air, otherwise, she could do real damage if she’s off at all. The power and the strength that it takes to
do this is really nothing short of amazing, and, obviously, this is why it’s taken so
long for a woman to even try it, let alone land it like she did. AMNA NAWAZ: You wrote in your column, she
got so much height that if there was an SUV parked on the floor, she would have cleared
it. And it’s worth noting it’s one of two
record-breaking moves she made, right? NANCY ARMOUR: Yes, she also did a double-double
off, dismount off a balance beam, which is a double-twisting double summersault, and
what makes that so amazing is she’s basically at a complete standstill before she does it. So, imagine that you are trying to dunk a
basketball from flat feet. It’s not exactly comparable but pretty close. So, what she’s doing, the power and the strength
that she has to get these moves, it’s unmatched, and not just in her sport, I would say in
pretty much any sport. AMNA NAWAZ: And it’s worth noting, that
little interview piece we just heard from her which was just days prior to her giving
this performance. I mean, the fact that she is out there, still
competing for USA Gymnastics, speaking out so bravely about the abuse she said she suffered,
and then giving performances like this, what does that say to you about Simone Biles? NANCY ARMOUS: She’s not only an amazing athlete,
she’s an amazing person. And Simone recognizes the power that she has
and influence she has. She’s the best thing that USA gymnastics has
going and has had going for the last couple of years. And she picks her spots and she picks what
she wants to say and how she wants to say it, but she recognizes that she has an influence
and that she can hold USA Gymnastics’ feet to the fire and USOC and even Congress, because
she is the best gymnast in the history for sport and she’s been failed, and somebody
has to answer that, and she continues to point that out and demand that they do right not
just by her but the other hundreds of women who were abused by Larry Nassar. AMNA NAWAZ: Nancy, there’s a reason the move
from this weekend has gone viral. People know that they are watching greatness
when they see it go by. You wrote about this in your column. You compared it to Mohammed Ali’s Rumble
in the Jungle, Serena Williams winning the Australian Open when she was pregnant. You mentioned Simone Biles being one of the
best gymnasts of all time. Is it fair to say she’s one of the best athletes
of all time? NANCY ARMOUR: I think so. I was struck last night that this is going
to be one of these things — and I’ve seen her do many spectacular things, many of them. But this is one of those things that a decade
from now, two decades from now, I’ll be able to picture it in my mind, if somebody
says Simone Biles’ triple-double, or what was the best move you ever saw Simone Biles
do, this will immediately come to mind. And I think that is the mark of an athlete
who has transcended not just in their own sports but across sports. And if she doesn’t qualify, then I don’t know
who does. AMNA NAWAZ: We’re all lucky to watch that
greatness in action. Nancy Armour of “USA Today”, thank you
so much. NANCY ARMOUR: Thanks for having me. (BREAK) AMNA NAWAZ: “Star Wars” creator George
Lucas and “Game of Thrones” author George R.R. Martin have cited him as an influence
on their work, helping them imagine what an adventure story might look like. Now, N.C. Wyeth, who led a family of American art royalty,
gets a new look in an exhibition of his illustrations and paintings. Jeffrey Brown reports for our ongoing arts
and culture series, “Canvas.” (BEGIN VIDEOTAPE) JEFFREY BROWN, PBS NEWSHOUR CORRESPONDENT:
The beautiful Brandywine River Valley in Pennsylvania: inspiration and home to Newell Convers better
known as N.C. Wyeth. Today, it’s also home to the Brandywine River
Museum of Art, in Chadds Ford, which is giving Wyeth a new look. It was Robert Louis Stevenson who wrote the
beloved adventure tale, “Treasure Island.” But for millions of American, beginning in
the early 20th century, it was Wyeth who created the lasting images of pirates and much more. CHRISTINE PODMANICZKY, CO-CURATOR, “N.C. WYETH: NEW PERSPECTIVES”: The personal paintings,
the illustrations, he did mural work, he did advertising work. So, his reach into the different aspects of
visual culture is so broad. JEFFREY BROWN: Christine Podmaniczky is co-curator
of the exhibition, “N.C. Wyeth: New Perspectives.” The goal here: to present a more well-rounded
portrait of an artist who painted scenes of rural life here and in coastal Maine, where
he had a residence, but who remains best known for his book illustrations, the smaller reproductions
of his large-scale paintings for such classic children’s stories as “Robin Hood”, “Last
of the Mohicans”, “King Arthur”. Wyeth’s genius, says Podmaniczky, was to find
just the right moment in the story to bring to life. As when young Jim Hawkins first leaves home
in treasure island. CHRISTINE PODMANICZKY: I said goodbye to mother
and the cove. That’s all Stevenson writes — JEFFREY BROWN: That’s it? CHRISTINE PODMANICZKY: That’s it. JEFFREY BROWN: One line? CHRISTINE PODMANICKZY: That’s it. All he writes about Jim Hawkins leaving home,
going off on this exploit where he’s to search for treasure. But when you look at the painting, you see
how much N.C. Wyeth has brought here in the form of emotion. First of all, the characters themselves, the
look on Jim Hawkins face. But his use of shadow, the sharp lines, the
sort of cloud over the mother, posture, all sorts of things heighten the sense of what’s
going on. JEFFREY BROWN: Wyeth’s first breakthrough,
in 1902, was a cover for the “Saturday Evening Post,” imagery of an already past and mythic
American west. He created magazine advertisements, including
for “Cream of Wheat”. It was a time before television and our own
screen-saturated lives, the golden age of illustration, and Wyeth was at its forefront. The commissions allowed him to buy property
here in Pennsylvania and to support the other part of his life for which he became best
known: as patriarch of an American art family dynasty, father of five children, three of
them painters, most famously the youngest, Andrew. Andrew Wyeth would become one of the biggest
names in 20th century American art, also focusing on his hometown of Chadds Ford and summer
home in Maine, including the celebrated Christina’s World from 1948. Andrew’s son, N.C.’s grandson, is Jamie
Wyeth. This is the grounds of your childhood, huh? JAMIE WYETH, PAINTER/GRANDSON, N.C. WYETH: Yes, my grandfather’s orchard and
whatnot, and then my aunt used this and studio. JEFFREY BROWN: Jamie now 73 and also a prominent
painter, first learned to draw in the grand studio N.C. built here. Jamie never knew his grandfather, who died
in 1945, age 62, in a car accident at a railroad crossing. The studio is owned by the Brandywine Museum. This is pretty much the way it was when you
were a kid? JAMIE WYETH: Totally, it hasn’t been changed
at all. It’s as if he walked out of it yesterday. JEFFREY BROWN: He painted this giant mural
for a Wilmington bank. JAMIE WYETH: My father told me that he would
watch his father walk up, put a brush stroke on, and walk back to see the visual effect. JEFFREY BROWN: So, he’d go up and back and
up and back. JAMIE WYETH: Back and forth, yes, putting
them in — I mean, it’s pretty loosely and thinly done when you get up to it, but to
do this expression and then get back knowing this thing would be 50 feet from the viewers,
and whatnot. JEFFREY BROWN: All around, the collection
of items he gathered for his book illustrations. JAMIE WYETH: Coming to this studio was magical
to me because here, it was full of costumes and cutlasses and flintlocks, and a lot of
his illustrations were still in the back room here. So I’d go through them for hours. JEFFREY BROWN: This was like the amusement
park in a way. JAMIE WYETH: Oh, my God, it was just magical. My father, of course, I would pump him and
ask him about N.C. Wyeth and he said, he wanted the paintings
to leap out of the page as you read them, to grab you by the neck. And they sure do. JEFFREY BROWN: As the show makes clear, though,
N.C. also had larger ambitions: to be taken seriously as a fine artist, rather than just
a successful commercial illustrator. Much of the exhibition’s second floor displays
the more personal paintings Wyeth created largely for himself, as well as two from his
late-in-life, first solo exhibition in a New York gallery. Among those: island funeral, which uses paint
Wyeth made from dyes he received from the nearby DuPont Company CHRISTINE PODMANICZKY: Ands that’s how he
gets these beautiful, deep, sort of jewel-like tones here. There’s a lot of tension going on here between
the old-fashioned bird’s eye view, the new cutting-edge dyes, the death of an island
patriarch. Well, N.C. Wyeth is in his late 50’s at this point, he
is already been publicized, if you will, as the patriarch of his own family. So there are thoughts, I think, of mortality
here. JEFFREY BROWN: There are also signs of Wyeth,
a traditional artist, flicking at some of the more modern painting techniques of his
time. CHRISTINE PODMANICZKY: This is one of the
most fascinating paintings as far as technique goes because you have him here trying to capture
the light on this chain mail or armor, and it’s just a magnificent piece of painting. JEFFREY BROWN: And grandson Jamie goes so
far to see in this exhibition an unusual kind of group show all by one painter. JAMIE WYETH: He tried so many different techniques,
so many different approaches. Some are very Cezanne-like, broken color,
impressionistic, tried them all, which is wonderful, I guess, you know? There’s a wonderful little self- portrait
of him looking. It’s just teeny and just very delicately done. JEFFREY BROWN: Painting, Jamie says, has been
the family passion. JAMIE WYETH: It was sort of like another world,
the comparing the three generations and so forth. And I happen to adore their work. I mean, these two individuals, very different
individuals, very different approaches to painting — I mean, what a thing to build
on. JEFFREY BROWN: The elder Wyeth himself, though,
never achieved the recognition he craved. JAMIE WYETH: He looked at it and thought his
life had just been doing these children’s books. It was hard for me to conceive that, though. I mean, he had to have looked at — I remember
my mother, she said when she first met him, she was very young and said, oh, Mr. Wyeth,
I love your illustrations, your “Treasure Island”, and he said, you’ll grow out of
that. JEFFREY BROWN: Really? JAMIE WYETH: Uh-huh. And he was wrong. JEFFREY BROWN: “N.C. Wyeth: New Perspectives” is at the Brandywine
River Museum of Art through September 15th. For the “PBS NewsHour”, I’m Jeffrey
Brown in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. (END VIDEOTAPE) AMNA NAWAZ: The exhibit moves next to the
Portland Museum of Art in Maine and, in 2020, the Taft Museum of Art in Cincinnati. And that’s the “NewsHour” for tonight. I’m Amna Nawaz. Join us online and again here tomorrow evening. For all of us here at the “PBS NewsHour”,
thank you. We’ll see you soon. END

HIS OWN WIFE, TAMMY, IF WE LOOK AT IT, THAT WASN’T VERY ENCOURAGING. NOT GOOD. HIS BRAIN SURGEON SAYS, NO, HIS BRAIN IS OKAY. CAN’T GO GO TO A 7-ELEVEN OR DUNKIN’ DONUTS WITHOUT A SLIGHT INDIAN ACCENT. BREAKING HIS STATE WAS A STATE. FIRST TIME EVER YOU GOT AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN WHO IS BRIGHT, ARTICULATE, AND CLEAN. IT’S STORYBOOK. OR, POOR KIDS ARE JUST AS TALENTED AS WHITE KIDS. JOE, 30330. I THINK THAT’S MY FAVORITE.>>Tammy: YET. HERE’S THE THING THAT ALSO I THINK AMERICANS SHOULD BE CONCERNED ABOUT AND DEMOCRATS SHOULD BE APPALLED BY. HE IS ACTUALLY IN THIS POSITION. IT IS CLEAR HE SHOULD NOT BE. AND YET, THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS SORE DESTROYED AND BARACK OBAMA DESTROYED IT IN HIS CULTIVATION OF A CULT, THAT THEY ARE PUSHING THIS MAN TO DO IT, BECAUSE THEY DO BELIEVE THAT HE WOULD HAVE MORE OF AN APPEAL THAN ALL OF THE REST OF THEIR TALENTS. SO THERE IS A POINT WHERE IT’S BECOMING EMBARRASSING FOR THIS MAN TO BE IN THIS POSITION. HIS WIFE CLEARLY WANTS TO SUPPORT HIM, BUT SHE OBVIOUSLY IS ALSO WORRIED ABOUT THE PARTY. BUT THEY CAN’T EVEN PUSH THROUGH IT ON THEIR OWN. I THINK THAT THAT TELLS YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW. BUT THEN, ALSO, THAT THE DEMOCRATS THEMSELVES. IT ALSO HIGHLIGHTS THE CONTEMPT THEY HAVE FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND FOR THEIR OWN BASE. THAT THERE’S NO REAL INTEREST IN BEING THERE FOR EVERYONE IN THE COUNTRY. THEY LIE ABOUT WHO IS A RACIST. THEY WANT TO DIVIDE AND CONQUER. THEY ARE PROPOSING THINGS THAT BERNIE SANDERS ADMITTED. WHEN HE WAS ASKED ABOUT HOW MUCH MEDICARE FOR ALL WOULD COUNT, HE GOES OH, I DON’T HAVE THAT IN MY POCKET. NOBODY DOES. WE REALLY DON’T KNOW. THEY HAVE NO IDEA, AND YET THEY ARE PUTTING THEMSELVES IN THIS POSITION, BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE THEIR OWN BASE IS IGNORANT. THEY BELIEVE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE DUMB.

PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS OUTMANEUVERED THE DEMOCRATS ON ONE OF THEIR SIGNATURE ISSUES, WHICH IS THE SENTENCING. ELIZABETH WARREN TALKING ABOUT SENTENCING REFORM. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT THE PERSON THEY HAVE TWO TO AGAINST IS HAS ACTUALLY DONE IT. THEY HAVE A HUGE PROBLEM RIGHT NOW. NEWT GINGRICH WROTE A BOOK CALLED REAL CHANGE MANY YEARS AGO. THE WHOLE PREMISE WAS THAT YOU NEED TO FRAME THESE ISSUES IN SUCH A WAY THAT 70% OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AGREE WITH YOU ON. WHO DOESN’T AGREE WITH MOVING THE CAPITAL FROM TO JERUSAL THE CAPITAL FROM TO JERUSAM THE CAPITAL FROM TO JERUSA? THE PRESIDENT HAS DELIVERED IT.

Trump 2020: A reelection machine like we’ve never seen before


-President Trump has
been fundraising for his 2020 re-election
campaign since 2017, and it’s paying off. This is really
a re-election machine like we have
never seen before. President
Trump and the committees that raise money
for his candidacy have raised more than $100
million for his 2020 campaign. This is unheard of
for any sitting president, certainly any sitting
modern president that we have been tracking. President
Trump has been fundraising for his 2020 campaign
since after he got elected. And presidents before him
didn’t do that. They usually waited until
after the midterms to campaign for their own re-election. And if history repeats itself, not even bad news from
the Mueller investigation will impact Trump’s positive
fundraising momentum. Every time there’s
some major news involving the special counsel, you see
President Trump’s campaign and the RNC fundraising
off of it, and they’re very successful
in doing that. What they do is they tell
President Trump’s base, “President Trump
is under attack. The Democrats are coming
after him. We need your money.
We need your support. Please sign this petition. Please support him. Donate $5.
Donate $20.” And it works. In addition to President
Trump’s fundraising, the RNC has really been
a massive machine of getting out voters
and raising a lot of money, especially in small-dollar
fundraising. The Post has reported that more
than half the money committees raise in the most
recent fundraising quarter came from individual supporters who are giving in amounts
of $200 or less. And those supporters
are turning up at Trump rallies, adding their names to the
Republican National Committee’s expanding
voter database. The Democratic
National Committee, on the other hand, isn’t having
the same fundraising luck. The Democratic National
Committee has been rebuilding since the loss
of Hillary Clinton in 2016, and they are still trying
to get donors to have trust in them again, to show donors that 2020
is gonna be different from 2016. So compared to, for example,
Senator Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts —
-Today I announced an exploratory committee for
President of the United States. -Senator Warren has less than
$13 million in cash on hand, and she’s gonna be competing
with maybe 25, 30 different candidates
for the primaries. So when you compare the amount
of money that a Democratic presidential
candidate is gonna need in order to compete
with President Trump, it’s just really unfathomable how difficult that’s gonna be
for the Democrat. When it comes to reaching
his voters, Trump has already
tested his strategy. -We saw a preview of how
the president is going to take on the political strategy
in 2020, as he did in 2018,
and as he did in 2016. Because this is not a guy who wants to moderate
or change his views. So I would expect a lot of talk
about immigration, a lot of talk about
these core base issues, about trade,
that really propelled him to the top of
the nomination pile in 2016 and won him to victory in 2016. We see how hard-lined
he went on immigration, particularly in the final days, final weeks of the 2018
campaign, in the midterms. -Bob Casey even voted against
Kate’s Law, named for Kate Steinle,
who was gunned down by a five-time-deported
illegal alien, should have never been
in our country. -And I would not expect that
to change at all from this president
in his re-election bid. -Another realm where Trump
already has a huge head start is online. -President Trump’s re-election
campaign is already a huge advertiser
on Google and Facebook. This is all data gathering that
the Trump campaign has been doing so well already. You know, to run a Facebook ad
or a Google ad, it doesn’t cost
a whole lot of money, but to run a well-placed ad and have a well-paid
digital team that’s smart and the best
in the business to be able to run
that kind of campaign, that’s where it costs
a lot of money. Anyone who wants to run
against President Trump is gonna need to build
a digital advertising and fundraising campaign
quickly and well. Money is not everything
for a political campaign. Hillary Clinton out-raised Trump
in 2016, but she lost. So this huge fundraising
start that President Trump has doesn’t mean that
he’s guaranteed to win in 2020, but it certainly gives him
a good head start.

WE SAW SOME POSITIVE DEVELOPMENT TODAY CONGRESS FINALLY PASSED WHAT THE PRESIDENT ASKED FOR, THAT INCLUDES OVER A BILLION DOLLARS FOR BORDER CONTROL, A TRILLION DOLLARS FOR I.C.E. THAT IS GOOD BUT HERE IS THE BAD NEWS, THE DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS REFUSED TO CLOSE THE LOOPHOLES CAUSING THIS CRISIS. THEY REFUSED TO DO ANYTHING TO FIX THE CRISIS AND I WILL TELL YOU ONE OF THE MOST DISTURBING REPORTS I AM GETTING, I AM GETTING MORE AND MORE REPORTS FO GETTING MORE AND MORE REPORTS FM GETTING MORE AND MORE REPORTS FL GETTING MORE AND MORE REPORTS FW GETTING MORE AND MORE REPORTS FE GETTING MORE AND MORE REPORTS FF GETTING MORE AND MORE REPORTS FR GETTING MORE AND MORE REPORTS FE GETTING MORE AND MORE REPORTS FT GETTING MORE AND MORE REPORTS FO GETTING MORE AND MORE REPORTS FF CARTELS AND TRAFFICKERS RENTING CHILDREN. BECAUSE IDIOTIC POLICY THAT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE PUT IN PLACE IS THAT IF SOMEONE SHOWS UP WITH A CHILD, THAT THEY ARE ALLOWED TO STAY AND GO FREE, AND AS A RESULT, YOU ARE SEEING LITTLE CHILDREN WHO ARE SUDDENLY FINDING MORE AND MORE INSTANCES OF CHILDREN WITH ADULTS WHO ARE NOW THEIR FAMILY, THAT ARE STRANGERS TO THEM, BUT THE CHILD IS ESSENTIALLY THERE GET OUT OF JAIL FREE CARD. THAT IS CRUEL TO INCENTIVIZE KIDS BEING ABUSED LIKE THAT AND THE DEMOCRATS ON THAT STAGE, THE DEMOCRATS ON THE STAGE RIGHT NOW, NOT A SINGLE ONE OF THEM IS WILLING TO DO ANYTHING TO FIX I IT.>>Sean: OPEN BORDERS AND AMNESTY IS A BIG PART OF THEIR AGENDA, I DON’T EVEN THINK THERE ARE ANY RESTRICTIONS ON ABORTIONS. THEY MAKE IT INTO WHAT HAPPENED IN VIRGINIA AND ALL THESE OTHER STATES WHERE WE TALK ABOUT DURING THE FOURTH — IT’S NOT ABORTION, IT’S INFANTICIDE. POST BIRTH INFANTICIDE. THEN WE’VE GOT A 70% TOP MARGINAL TAX RATE FOR INDIVIDUALS. 90% FOR CORPORATIONS. HOW MANY PEOPLE’S TAXES IN TERMS OF GETTING POPULATION, IT WASN’T A CLOSE TO 400,000 IN THE LAST YEAR OR TWO?>>WE GET OVER 1,000 PEOPLE A DAY MOVE INTO THE STATE OF TEXAS. WHY QUESTION RIGHT BECAUSE THAT’S WHERE THE JOBS ARE. THEY ARE FLEEING STATES LIKE CALIFORNIA AND NEW YORK.>>Sean: WAIT A MINUTE, MIKE HUCKABEE SAT ON THE SHOW THE OTHER DAY, IF YOU ARE TAKING A U-HAUL FROM CALIFORNIA TO TEXAS IT’S ABOUT $1600. I HAVE NOT HEARD THIS. BUT IF YOU ARE RETURNING, YOU’RE BASICALLY DOING U-HAUL A FAVOR, IT’S $400 BUT IT IS PROBABLY NEGOTIABLE. THEY MIGHT GIVE IT TO YOU FOR $100. A SPIGOT THAT IS EXACTLY RIGHT, FOR A LONG TIME , THE PRICE DIFFERENTIAL, GOING TO CALIFORNIA VERSUS GOING TO TEXAS IS ABOUT 300% PRICE DIFFERENTIAL IN U-HAUL, THAT IS BEEN TRUE FOR YEARS BECAUSE EVERYONE IS FLEEING THE SINKING SHIP, AS YOU HAVE THE CRAZY LEFT JACKING UP TAXES, JACKING UP REGULATIONS. AND WELCOMING PEOPLE COMING ILLEGALLY. AND THE JOB PRODUCERS, THE SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS ARE FLEEING THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, AND IN TEXAS — I’LL TELL YOU SOMETHING INTERESTING, THE STORY CAME AT A COUPLE MONTHS AGO. YOU KNOW WHAT THE NUMBER ONE CITY IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA FOR MILLENNIALS MOVING INTO HIS? MY HOMETOWN OF HOUSTON. THEY ARE MOVING TO THE MOST DIVERSITY IN AMERICA, WHY? BECAUSE OF THE JOBS. THERE ARE JOBS IN THE WAGES ARE GOING UP AND YOU HAVE OPPORTUNITY BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT DOESN’T PUT THEIR BOOT ON THE BACK OF THE NECKS OF SMALL BUSINESSES.>>Sean: IT’S INTERESTING, BILL MAHER, I DON’T LIKE HIM BUT HE SOMETIMES MAKES SOME VERY HONEST STATEMENTS. HE SAID NOT A GOOD START BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T ANSWER THE FIRST QUESTION. 70% OF AMERICANS — WE NOW HAVE THE BEST EMPLOYMENT SITUATION IN AMERICA SINCE 1969. PRINCIPAL, BY THE WAY, THAT YOU HAVE SUPPORTED YOUR ENTIRE CAREER, CUTTING TAXES, WE ARE NOW ENERGY DEPENDENT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 75 YEARS. AT THE NEW GREENDALE SAYS NO OIL, NO GAS IN TEN YEARS. BY THE WAY, MANY OF THEM ARE BUYING INTO THIS INSANITY, THE NEW GREENDALE. WHAT WAS THAT DUE TO ESTATE LIGHT TEXAS, WHAT WITH THAT DUE TO THE ECONOMY IN GENERAL IF YOU HAD A 70% AND 90% TAX RATE?>>IT WOULD DESTROY OPPORTUNITY ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY. THAT WAY FROM BELMAR, I RETWEETED TODAY BILL MAHER BECAUSE HIS TWEET WAS EXACTLY RIGHT, HE SAID THE FIRST QUESTION IN THE DEBATE –>>Sean: TED CRUZ RETREATING BELMAR, I LIKE THAT. SPEAK UP BUT HE RIGHTLY POINTED OUT, HE SAID 70% OF AMERICANS SAY THE ECONOMY IS DOING WELL. WHY DO YOU GUYS THINK WE SHOULD CHANGE IT? AND NOT ONE OF THE DEMOCRATS HAD AN ANSWER. WE’VE GOT — YOU AND YOUR VIEWERS KNOW THIS, WE HAVE GOT THE LOWEST UNEMPLOYMENT AND 50 YEARS, LOWEST AFRICAN-AMERICAN UNEMPLOYMENT EVER RECORDED, LOWEST HISPANIC UNEMPLOYMENT EVER RECORDED. WHAT THEY ARE PROPOSING, THE GREEN NEW DEAL WOULD COST WILL COST $93 MILLION. IT’S HARD TO UNDERSTAND 1 MILLION, A TRILLION, A BILLION, BUT LET ME PUT THAT IN PERSPECTIVE. $93 TRILLION IS MORE MONEY THAN THE ENTERAL GOVERNMENT HAS SPENT IN THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA GOING BACK TO GEORGE WASHINGTON. IT WOULD MEAN ABOUT $65,000 PER FAMILY IN AMERICA PER YEAR. THAT IS WHERE THE DEMOCRATS ARE. THEY ARE JUST — DONALD TRUMP HASN’T BROKEN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, THEY HATE HIM SO MUCH THEY ARE EMBRACING POLICIES THAT WOULD DESTROY POLICY AND OPEN UP OUR BORDERS. IT’S WRONG.>>Sean: OBAMA BIDEN EIGHT YEARS, 30 MILLION NEW AMERICANS ON FOOD STAMPS, A MILLION IN POVERTY. NOW 6 MILLION OFF OF FOOD STAMPS

New Leader In 2020 Polls


>>Joe Biden has had a rough couple of weeks
in terms of his gaffes. You can probably fill it in, but Parkland
and Theresa May and he’s getting terror attacks wrong and it’s just he’s fumbling from one
gaffe to another. And his aides have been watching this and
so they apparently have a new strategy that they might implement. They’ve been floating the idea of altering
his schedule in an effort to reduce the gaffes he’s made in recent days. The allies, growing increasingly nervous about
Biden’s verbal flubs, have said it’s an approach that’s been suggested to campaign officials
on the heels of the former vice president’s stumbles. And so effectively by alter his schedule they
mean not have him in public as much.>>Because if he’s in public, he can talk,
and if he can talk,he can gaffe, and they’ve just gotta get right out in front of that. And so you guys have covered a lot of races
over the years. Is it a good sign,when the strategy is to
take you off the campaign trail and out of the public eye?>>No, when you’re trying to hide the candidate,
that probably means you don’t have a good candidate. That’s like Weekend At Bernie’s, where the
guy was dead and they were trying to pretend like he was alive.>>You don’t want to have to pretend like
your candidate is, yeah, yeah, he’s good. He’s ready to go. He’s gonna take a little break, but we’ll
be back. He’s doing all right. So trust us, he’s gonna be fine.>>Yeah, and the thing is, too, so you have
your advice is bad idea, but what ally says he needs to be a strong force on the campaign
trail, but he also has to pace himself. I mean, the thing is, look, he had already
been campaigning less than a lot of the others. Not everybody is campaigning at the same pace
as each other, and Joe Biden joined, not last. There have been others since he joined. But he was one of the last ones. He’s been in this for literally months less
than some of the earliest candidates.>>No guys, they’re telling their own candidate
to shut up. That is not a good sign. No one on planet Earth can pretend that’s
a good sign. One of his allies said, no, no, Biden’s great. He just has a tendency to make blunders later
in the day.>>That’s brutal.>>I’m more of an early morning president. Everything after noon, leave the vice president
to do that.>>Yeah, so, number one, if you’re worried
that your candidate’s too old, saying he’s gotta get the early bird special and he can’t
talk later at night is not a good way to go. And secondly, you still have to be president
at night. So this is, it’s terrible. But another one I was amused by, apparently
a major Democratic donor, according to The Hill, said this. A lot of people are nervous that he’s lost
some of his mojo. They’re getting nervous about him going toe
to toe with Trump, but the problem is there doesn’t seem to be an alternative. There’s 25 people in the race!>>There’s never been this many alternatives.>>That’s right, and so why would a major
Democratic donor say that? Cuz they’re like, well, because number two
and number three are Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Or Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. And that is not an alternative if you’re a
Democratic donor. They’re like, that’s a nightmare for them. Cuz they actually would end the corruption
or at least they would attempt to end the corruption. So donors are like, I don’t know who’s left. I guess nobody’s left. And they know the other moderates can’t moderates,
conservatives, whatever you want to call them in the race can’t win, because their ideas
suck. They’re just trying to ride off of Biden’s
name recognition. And so, we were told that Hickenlooper was
from a purple state, governor, and conservative Democrat, and that’s how you win in this country. After polling at 0% for most of the race,
dropped out yesterday cuz he had no prayer, cuz it doesn’t work. The voters don’t want conservative, pro-corporate,
pro-donor Democrats. That’s why Biden starting to fade is causing
a panic in the Democratic establishment.>>So here’s the thing. That, obviously, all that I read you, the
new strategy, which they dispute. Some are saying they’re not gonna do that,
but some are saying they are. That sounds like really bad news for Joe Biden
today. But I read something else that sounds like
worse news for Joe Biden. And it involves his best buddy in the entire
world, Barack Obama. So former President Obama, you’ve probably
read this, has taken an active interest in Joe Biden’s presidential campaign even holding
a lunch with his former vice president last month. That all sounds good. Joe wants to hang out with him more anyway. It’s been very clear. But apparently there had been some talk before
Biden launched his candidacy that does not look good now for him. Obama asked to Biden aides to visit with him
in March for briefing on its strategy. Afterward The Times reported that Obama told
the aides they should make sure that Biden does not, quote, embarrass himself or quote,
damage his legacy while running for president. But that’s what he said to the aides, which
is bad, but what he said to Joe might be worse. You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really
don’t, Obama told Mr. Biden earlier this year, according to a person familiar with the exchange.>>Obama’s never believed in him.>>To some extent, the way you say that might
make some difference, but that’s not like, go get them, buddy.>>And look, let’s keep it real on a couple
of different fronts on Obama. Obama convinced Biden not to run last time
around. Cuz Obama doesn’t believe in Biden. Part of the reason he doesn’t believe in Biden
is he kicked the living crap out of Biden in a primary, really, really easily. People forget back in the 2008 primary, it
was mainly Obama versus Hillary Clinton. But there was a whole bunch of other Democrats
in there, including Joe Biden. And Obama had way less name recognition than
Joe Biden, had way less money in the beginning, had less everything and easily crushed Biden
cuz he is not a good candidate. All he’s ever done is win in Delaware, cuz
he was a congressman or a senator from there for as literally my entire life. So he’s never won a contested election in
like 50 years. And why is he even in this race? Because he won a coin toss in effect right. It wasn’t a literal coin toss but Obama’s
like aw, should I go with Evan Bayh or should I go with Joe Biden to appeal to white voters. And he had a couple other names in there,
I’m sure, Chris Dodd, etc. And he’s like, Biden, okay. If Evan Bayh had won the coin toss and was
vice president, does anybody think Joe Biden would be in the presidential race, let alone
leading? No one thinks that. So he has no actual great credentials in being
a candidate. Now, which leads me to the most devastating
part, the actual polling, the Biden fade has begun. So now we got to pull out of Iowa. I believe that’s a fairly relevant state. It’s starting line, change polls. And in a new, we’ve got our leader! Elizabeth Warren, in fact, Joe Biden’s now
tied with Bernie Sanders. So depending on how you wanna frame it, he’s
tied for second, tied for third, and fading and fading. Warren now has an 11 point lead in Iowa against
Biden. Now here’s the thing, you can say hey, that’s
just one poll and you could talk about hey, what is the credibility of that poll, etc. But guys, it doesn’t really matter. Does anyone think that Joe Biden after losing
the lead is going to retake the lead? No one that knows politics thinks that. Once the fate begins, its goodnight Irene. Okay, then it’s late night and he can’t even
talk. And then finally, you wanna talk about a bigger
poll and the whole country. An Economist YouGov poll now has Biden at
21% nationally, and Elizabeth Warren at 20%. She’s only one point behind him. So here comes Warren! And there goes Biden. And guys, the Democratic establishment has
not woken up to this. Warren and Sanders are two and three, with
a guy who’s almost certainly gonna drop out of the top spot. That leaves the top two as progressives.>>Well, they’re afraid of progressives. The same way that they were arguing against
starting impeachment processes because they thought that the impeachment, starting the
impeachment process. They were looking at what it did for Clinton
back then. We’re in a different world now. I think we’re in a world where people can
handle and want a more progressive candidate. So I think they should stop being afraid of
being progressive.>>Yeah, damn right, I wonder if anybody’s
said that before? Look at this tweet I found. The last tweet from election night 2016. I tweeted, mark my words, Elizabeth Warren
will destroy Donald Trump in 2020. It will be a historic landslide. I’m not saying anything. I’m just saying.

Jimmy Checks In on the 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidates


-Well, you guys, the race for the Democratic presidential
nomination has barely started, and it’s already
getting crazy. Listen to this — former Democratic Senator
Mike Gravel is thinking about running
at 88 years old. 88. When they heard that,
Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden were like,
“Hey, who’s the new kid?” [ Laughter ]
“Yeah, punk.” [ Applause ] That’s right,
we could have a 76-year-old, a 77-year-old,
and an 88-year-old running for President. I can’t wait for the debates. I mean, who wouldn’t be pumped
about the possibility of listening to a three-hour
symphony of dry coughs? [ Laughter ] [ Coughing ]
[ Applause ] These guys shouldn’t be
running for President. They should be in a movie about
a group of friends taking their last trip
to Las Vegas. That’s —
that’s what I would watch. [ Applause ] But this is great news. Today, former President
Jimmy Carter became America’s longest-living President
at 94 years. [ Cheers and applause ] These are some strange times. Somehow Jimmy Carter
is the oldest living President, but today, he would still be the youngest Democrat
running for President. Isn’t that interesting
if you think about it? [ Coughing ] [ Applause ] Well, last night, Democratic
candidate John Hickenlooper did a town hall on CNN.
and at one point the moderator asked him about a story
in his book where he went to the movies
with his mom. Watch this. -You have a lot of interesting
stories in that book. One of them is about
the time you went to see an X-rated movie…
-Ah. [ Laughter ] -…with your mother. [ Audience “oh”s ] -I didn’t know
what an X movie was. We thought it was a little
naughty, but we didn’t think
it was that bad. So I took my mother
to see “Deep Throat.” [ Laughter ] -Then he said, “Anyway, that was
an awkward Mother’s Day. But besides that…”
[ Laughter and applause ] “Popcorn was good.” [ Applause ] But right now the front-runner
is still Joe Biden, even though he hasn’t
officially joined the race. [ Light laughter,
scattered cheers ] But the other night he did
tell a few people that he’s going to run.
-Oh. -Yeah. It’s like when you have
a female friend who starts wearing looser
clothes and stops drinking, and you still gotta act
surprised in three months when she’s like,
“I’m pregnant, you guys.” “Yeah, we knew.”
Now get this. I read that several
world leaders have actually reached out to Joe Biden
and urged him to run. But not every world leader
agrees on who to support in 2020. Check out
who they’re endorsing. First, Germany’s
Angela Merkel said, “I like Biden because of
his foreign policy experience.” Then Pope Francis said,
“I’m for Bernie Sanders, because we’ve been friends
since the ’80s — the 1880s.” [ Laughter ] Next up, Australia’s
Scott Morrison said, “I’m endorsing John Delaney,
because he’s just like me. And by that I mean, most
Americans never heard of us.” [ Laughter ] And finally,
Queen Elizabeth said, “Here’s two words to explain why
I support Beto O’Rourke — Yum Yum.”
[ Laughter and applause ] -Really?
-Yum Yum? -That’s her reasoning?
-Yeah, apparently. -Yum Yum. -Speaking of Beto O’Rourke,
he’s been able to campaign more than anyone, because
right now he doesn’t have a job. [ Light laughter ] So he’s actually been driving
around the country in a rented Dodge minivan. [ Light laughter ] Let me get this straight. One of the top
Democratic candidates is a 40-year-old unemployed guy
living out of a van? Perfect.
Sounds about right. What?
[ Applause ] But it’s true. Since he
no longer is a Congressman, Beto doesn’t have a day job. Unless you count his job
as the guy walking a dog in every Lands’ End catalog.
[ Laughter ] Hey, guys,
I’m excited about this. March Madness started today.
-Yeah! [ Cheers and applause ] -Some exciting matchups.
-Come on. -Some great matchups.
Baylor versus Syracuse. Montana versus Michigan. Donald Trump versus
Kellyanne Conway’s husband. I mean, it’s just been
madness. [ Applause ] That’s right,
Trump and Kellyanne’s husband are in a huge Twitter feud
right now. But Kellyanne says that
she’s not being asked to choose between her marriage
and her job. And Trump was like,
“Do what I do, choose neither.” [ Laughter and applause ] It’s crazy, though.
On Twitter today, Kellyanne’s husband, George,
called Trump a liar and “the worst kind of dumb.” When Trump saw George
posting insults on Twitter, he fired Kellyanne
and hired George. He’s like, “This guy has
everything I want. [ Applause ] “Where’s he been all my life?” Game recognize game.”
[ Laughter ]

Tulsi Gabbard to Americans: War with Iran would be devastating


>>President Trump: I’VE BEEN WATCHING HER AND I HAVE BEEN WATCHING HER FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME. SHE IS NOT THE SAME PERSON. SHE HAS LOST IT.>>THIS TIME ANOTHER TEMPER TANTRUM AGAIN. I PRAY FOR THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. I WISH THAT HIS FAMILY OR HIS ADMINISTRATION OR HIS STAFF WOULD HAVE AN INTERVENTION FOR THE GOOD OF THE COUNTRY.>>Bill: WE HAD A BACK AND FORTH ALL DAY YESTERDAY. PRESIDENT TRUMP, HOUSE SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI ESCALATING THEIR PERSONAL FEUD AS THE DRAMA PLAYS OUT CONGRESS IS TRYING TO GET DOWN TO BUSINESS. WHAT ABOUT THAT BUSINESS? OUR HEADLINER IS PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE AND DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSWOMAN TULSI GABBARD OUT OF HAWAII. WELCOME BACK TO “AMERICA’S NEWSROOM.” SO PETER KING SAID THEY’VE HAD A SHORT-TERM BREAKUP. HOW DO YOU CHARACTERIZE IT?>>LOOK, I THINK IT IS THE HYPER PARTISANSHIP AND DIVISIVENESS THAT PEOPLE ARE SICK AND TIRED OF THAT THEY SEE IN WASHINGTON GETTING IN THE WAY OF ACTUALLY DOING THE PEOPLE’S BUSINESS, SERVING THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY. THERE IS SO MUCH THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. WE’VE HEARD TALKS ABOUT ACTUALLY FINALLY PASSING AN INFRASTRUCTURE BILL, SOMETHING THAT COMMUNITIES LIKE MINE IN HAWAII AND ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE IN DIRE NEED OF. WE HAVE TO PUT THE WELL-BEING OF THE PEOPLE FIRST IN THIS COUNTRY AND DO WHAT IT TAKES TO DELIVER RESULTS FOR THEM.>>Bill: HOW MUCH OF THIS DO YOU THINK IS POSTURING RIGHT NOW AND HOW MUCH DO YOU THINK IT IS PERSONAL?>>I DON’T KNOW. FRANKLY IT DOESN’T MATTER. WHAT MATTERS IS THAT WE IN THIS COUNTRY AS LEADERS HAVE A MANDATE TO FULFILL THE VISION THAT OUR FOUNDERS LAID OUT FOR US. TO HAVE A GOVERNMENT THAT IS OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, AND FOR THE PEOPLE. NOT FOR THE DEMOCRATS, NOT FOR THE REPUBLICANS. NOT FOR THE RICH AND POWERFUL, FOR THE PEOPLE. AND SO WE HAVE TO BE ABLE TO COME TOGETHER WHETHER THE DIFFERENCES ARE PERSONAL OR WHATEVER IT IS, SET ASIDE THOSE DIFFERENCES AND ACTUALLY PUT THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY FIRST.>>Sandra: CONGRESSWOMAN, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHAT THEY SAW THIS WEEK IS NOTHING GETTING DONE IN WASHINGTON THERE WAS THIS PLANNED MEETING AT THE WHITE HOUSE THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO GET SOMETHING DONE ON INFRASTRUCTURE. THAT WAS THE PLAN. NANCY PELOSI TOOK TO THE MICROPHONE EARLY THAT MORNING ACCUSED THE PRESIDENT OF A CRIME, THE PRESIDENT RESPONDED IN THE ROSE GARDEN SHORTLY AFTER. I MEAN, FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, THEY SAW NOTHING GETTING DONE ON THOSE IMPORTANT ISSUES YOU JUST MENTIONED.>>AND IT’S VERY DISTURBING. I CAN SPEAK AS A SOLDER. I’VE SERVED IN THE ARMY NATIONAL GUARD FOR OVER 16 YEARS AND DEPLOYED TWICE TO THE MIDDLE EAST AND SOMETHING I’VE APPRECIATED SO MUCH THROUGHOUT MY TIME IN SERVICE WITH MY FELLOW SERVICE MEMBERS, PEOPLE WHO COME FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY, DIFFERENT IDEOLOGICAL SPECTRUM, DIFFERENT POLITICS, DIFFERENT RACE, ETHNICITY, RELIGION, ORIENTATION BUT WE ALL SERVE ONE MISSION, SERVING THE INTERESTS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. THAT KIND OF FOCUS ON SERVICE, PUTTING SERVICE ABOVE SELF IS WHAT OUR COUNTRY’S LEADERS NEED.>>Bill: THE BIG NEWS TODAY IS THE PRESIDENT ORDERED ALL THE INTEL CHIEFS TO COOPERATE WITH BILL BARR A.G. AND WE’LL SEE SOME OF THESE DOCUMENTS, SOONER RATHER THAN LATER. HOW CURIOUS ARE YOU TO KNOW ABOUT THE FISA COURT AND CARTER PAGE AND THE SURVEILLANCE OF GEORGE PAPADOPOULOS AND THE JAMES COMEY MEETING AT THE TRUMP TOWER IN JANUARY OF 2017?>>I THINK THE TRUTH IS MOST IMPORTANT TO COME THROUGH. I THINK WE’VE SEEN BOTH IN SOME OF THE EXAMPLES THAT YOU’VE RAISED BUT ALSO PREVIOUS EXAMPLES OF HOW THE FISA COURT AND THIS SYSTEM IS NOT WORKING IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY. WE HAVE A ONE-SIDED SYSTEM REALLY THAT DOES NOT REPRESENT ANY VOICE OR ANY PROTECTION FOR THE CIVIL LIBERTIES AND PRIVACY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT I’VE BEEN WORKING ON WITH FELLOW DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS TO TRY TO BRING ABOUT SOME REAL CHANGE AND REAL REFORM.>>WOULD YOU CONSIDER A PRIVATE CITIZEN AT THE TIME, A CANDIDATE FOR THE WHITE HOUSE, TO BE IN THAT SAME CATEGORY, THAT BEING DONALD TRUMP.>>I’M NOT SURE WHAT YOU MEAN.>>Bill: TALK ABOUT AFFORDING EVERYDAY PEOPLE THEIR CIVIL LIBERTIES TO MAKE SURE THEY’RE PROTECTED BY THE SYSTEM OF JUSTICE.>>OF COURSE, OF COURSE. THE RIGHTS THAT EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US HAVE THAT ARE AFFORDED TO US UNDER THE CONSTITUTION INCLUDING CIVIL LIBERTIES AND PRIVACY.>>Sandra: YOU HAVE STRONG THOUGHTS HOW TO PROCEED WITH ESCALATING TENSIONS WITH IRAN. HERE IS THE PRESIDENT ON THAT YESTERDAY. I’LL ASK YOU ABOUT IT AFTER.>>President Trump: THEY ARE A NATION OF TERROR AND WE WON’T PUT UP WITH IT. THE DEAL THAT WAS SIGNED BY PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS A HORROR SHOW. A TERRIBLE DEAL. THE MINUTE I COLLAPSED THAT DEAL AND TERMINATED IT IRAN WENT IN A VERY BAD DIRECTION. THEY ARE NOW SUFFERING MASSIVE PROBLEMS FINANCIALLY. THEY HAVE INFLATION THAT IS ABOUT THE HIGHEST IN THE WORLD.>>Sandra: HOW SHOULD THE UNITED STATES PROCEED, CONGRESSWOMAN?>>LET’S TALK ABOUT WHERE WE ARE NOW. WE’RE UNFORTUNATELY IN VERY CONCERNINGLY ON THE BRINK OF WAR WITH IRAN. THESE ESCALATING TENSIONS HAVE BROUGHT US HERE. MY EXPERIENCE AS A SOLDER HAVING DEPLOYED TWICE TO THE MIDDLE EAST SERVICE IN CONGRESS ON THE FOREIGN AFFAIRS AND ARMED SERVICES COMMITTEES FOR OVER SIX YEARS I’M FAMILIAR WITH THE REGION, THE COST OF WAR AND WHERE THIS PATH LEADS US. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NEED TO UNDERSTAND HOW DEVASTATING AND COSTLY SUCH A WAR WOULD BE. HOW IT WOULD IMPACT ALMOST EVERY PART OF OUR LIVES. IT WOULD UNDERMINE OUR NATIONAL SECURITY, IT WOULD STRENGTHEN TERRORIST GROUPS LIKE ISIS AND AL QAEDA AND TAKE THE TERRIBLE HUMAN TOLL. THE COST OF COUNTLESS AMERICAN SERVICE MEMBERS’ LIVES. MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN UNIFORM. THE COST TO CIVILIANS IN THE REGION. INCREASING THE REFUGEE CRISIS ACROSS EUROPE AND IT WOULD COST TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS THAT WOULD COME OUT OF OUR POCKETS. TAXPAYERS’ POCKETS TO PAY FOR THIS ENDLESS WAR. RESOURCES THAT WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO USE FOR THINGS LIKE REBUILDING OUR CRUMBLING INFRASTRUCTURE.>>Bill: TO BUILD ON THAT AND TO PREVENT THAT AS A DETERRENT WILL YOU GIVE THIS ADMINISTRATION CREDIT FOR SQUEEZING GROUPS THAT ARE OFFSHOOTS THAT ARE SUPPORTED BY THE IRANIAN GOVERNMENT? JUST THE REPORT THIS MORNING SUGGESTING HEZBOLLAH AND HAMAS ARE REACHING OUT TO GET MORE FUNDING AND MONEY BECAUSE THEY’RE BEING STRANGLED. WOULD YOU GIVE HIM THAT?>>THE DECISIONS THAT THIS ADMINISTRATION HAS TAKEN TOWARDS IRAN HAVE MADE THINGS WORSE, NOT BETTER. THEY HAVE MADE OUR COUNTRY, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, LESS SAFE, NOT MORE SECURE. BY PULLING OUT OF THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL THAT THERE ARE SOME FLAWS AND THERE ARE CONCERNS THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ADDRESSED SEPARATELY WHILE MAINTAINING AND UPHOLDING THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL TO PREVENT IRAN FROM GETTING NUCLEAR WEAPONS. INSTEAD BY THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION PULLING OUT FROM THIS DEAL, THEY’VE ESSENTIALLY GIVEN IRAN AN EXCUSE TO BE ABLE TO RESTART THIS IRAN NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROGRAM WHICH IS SOMETHING THAT THEY’VE STARTED TALKING ABOUT. SOMETHING THAT MAKES US AND THE WORLD FAR LESS SAFE. SO AS PRESIDENT I WOULD REENTER THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL. WORK OUT THE DIFFERENCES OUTSIDE OF THAT AND DE-ESCALATE THE TENSIONS THAT ARE BRINGING US TO THE BRINK OF WAR WITH IRAN TODAY.>>Bill: I APPRECIATE YOUR POSITION.>>Sandra: 2020 DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES POLLING. JOE BIDEN CLEARLY STILL THE FRONTRUNNER LEADING BY DOUBLE DIGITS OVER BERNIE SANDERS, KAMALA HARRIS, ELIZABETH WARREN. YOU AREN’T ON THE SCREEN BECAUSE YOU’RE STILL POLLING IN THE SINGLE DIGITS. HOW DO YOU PLAN TO MAKE YOUR MOVE?>>WE’RE BRINGING OUR MESSAGE DIRECTLY TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND THAT IS A MESSAGE OF PUTTING THE WELL-BEING AND INTERESTS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FIRST AND FOREMOST AHEAD OF PARTISAN INTERESTS, AHEAD OF CORPORATE INTERESTS, AHEAD OF INTERESTS OF OTHER COUNTRIES. AND MAKING THIS COMMITMENT TO THEM THAT AS PRESIDENT I WILL END THESE WASTEFUL REGIME CHANGE WARS WHETHER IT’S AGAINST COUNTRIES LIKE VENEZUELA, IRAN SYRIA. WORK TO END THE NEW COLD WAR BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND NUCLEAR ARMED COUNTRIES LIKE RUSSIA AND CHINA. AND END THIS NUCLEAR ARMS RACE AND TAKE THE TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS THAT WE WOULD CONTINUE TO SPEND ON THESE WARS AND WEAPONS IF WE CONTINUE DOWN THE PATH WE’RE ON, AND TAKE THOSE DOLLARS AND PUT THEM BACK IN THE POCKETS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. USE THOSE DOLLARS TO SERVE THE NEEDS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.>>Bill: WE’RE OUT OF TIME BUT CERTAINLY APPRECIATE YOURS

Tucker: Not everyone in 2020 Democratic field is a lunatic


GOOD EVENING AND WELCOME TO A SPECIAL DEMOCRATIC DEBATE ADDITION OF TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT. WE TOLD YOU IN THE PAST THAT DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY VOTERS DON’T SEEM TO HAVE MUCH OF A CHOICE THIS YEAR. THERE ARE AN AWFUL LOT OF CANDIDATES IN THE RACE, BUT ALL OF THEM SEEM TO HAVE IDENTICAL FAR LEFT POSITIONS ON THE ISSUES THAT MATTER. YOU NAME IT. UNTIL YESTERDAY, THAT WAS OUR VIEW, AND THEN WE WATCHED LAST NIGHT’S DEMOCRATIC DEBATE. WE WILL HAVE TO REVISE THAT ASSESSMENT. IT TURNS OUT THAT NOT EVERYONE IN THE FIELD IS A LUNATIC. WE STAND CORRECTED ON THAT. IN FACT, THERE ARE A COUPLE OF SANE ONES. UNFORTUNATELY, THEY ARE GETTING CRUSHED. WATCH, FOR EXAMPLE, WHAT HAPPENED WHEN CONGRESSMAN RYAN TRIED TO REMIND HIS DEMOCRATS THAT MOST DEMOCRATS DON’T SUPPORT OPEN BORDERS. RYAN SUDDENLY BECAME THE MOST UNPOPULAR KID AT THE PARTY. WATCH.>>NOW, IN THIS DISCUSSION, WE TALKED ABOUT TAKING PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE AWAY FROM UNION MEMBERS IN THE INDUSTRIAL MIDWEST. WE TALKED ABOUT DECRIMINALIZING THE BORDER. AND WE TALKED. I QUITE FRANKLY, DON’T THINK THAT THAT IS AN AGENDA THAT WE CAN MOVE FORWARD ON AND WIN. WE’VE GOT TO TALK ABOUT THE WORKING CLASS ISSUES. THE PEOPLE WHO TAKE A SHOWER AFTER WORK WHO HAVEN’T HAD A RAISE IN 30 YEARS. IF WE FOCUS ON THAT, WE WILL WIN THE ELECTION.>>YOUR RESPONSE, SIR?>>NOT A LOT OF APPLAUSE. IN FACT, DEAD SILENCE. IT TURNS THE DEMOCRATS IN THE ROOM DIDN’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT WORKING CLASS ISSUES OR PEOPLE, AS TIM RYAN PUT IT, WHO TAKE A SHOWER AFTER WORK. PROGRESSIVES WROTE THOSE WATERS OFF AS DISGUSTING A LONG TIME AGO. AT THE SAME TIME, THEY ARE DEEPLY PRIVILEGED. THAT GOES WITHOUT SAYING, THEY COULD BE RACIST. EVERY ONE OF THEM. THEY HAVE BEEN EXCLUDED FROM THE EMERGING AL SHARPTON PRIVATE EQUITY COALITION THAT DEFINES THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. AS ELIZABETH WARREN AND BERNIE SANDERS. THE VERY IDEA THAT YOU HAVE TO WIN POPULAR SUPPORT FOR YOUR POLICIES SEEM TO ENRAGE THEM. WARREN, ESPECIALLY. AT ONE POINT, THEY ACCUSED A CNN PERSON AS BEING A SECRET REPUBLICAN. FIRST TIME THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED.>>DO NOT SUPPORT MEDICARE FOR ALL.>>YOUR QUESTION IS A REPUBLICAN TALKING POINT.>>WHAT YOU WANT TO DO INSTEAD IS FIND REPUBLICAN TALKING POINTS OF A MADE UP PIECE OF SOME OTHER PART AND SAY OH, WE DON’T REALLY HAVE TO DO ANYTHIN ANYTHING. STOP USING REPUBLICAN TALKING POINTS IN ORDER TO TALK WITH EACH OTHER ABOUT HEALTH CARE. SEE ONE THAT REALLY WAS THE STORY OF THE WHOLE NIGHT. ELIZABETH WORN JUMPING UP AND DOWN AND BARKING AT ANYONE WHO ASKS TOO MANY QUESTIONS. NOT EVERYTHING ELIZABETH SAYS IS WRONG. WE ACTUALLY LIKE HER VIEWS ABOUT MANUFACTURING AND TRADE FOR EXAMPLE. HOLY SMOKES, IS WARREN UNBEARABLE IN A LOT OF WAYS. NASTY AS. WATCH HOW SHE TREATED JOHN DELANEY, WHO IS ONE OF THE NICEST MEN IN POLITICS.>>I THINK DEMOCRATS WIN THE ONE WE RUN ON REAL SOLUTIONS, NOT IMPOSSIBLE PROMISES. WHEN WE RUN ON THINGS THAT ARE POSSIBLE, NOT FAIRY TALE ECONOMICS.>>I DON’T KNOW WHY ANYBODY GOES THROUGH ALL THE TROUBLE OF RUNNING FOR THE PRESIDENT OF UNITED STATES JUST TO TALK ABOUT WHAT WE SHOULDN’T DO AND WHAT WE CAN’T FIGHT FOR.>>Tucker: SO, IF YOU ARE NOT ARE READ IN THE FACE DISHONEST DEMIGOD, LIKE WARREN THINKS YOU ARE. SHE TWISTED HIS POINTED TO SOMETHING COMPLETELY UNRECOGNIZABLE.>>YOU A SAIN IMMIGRATION SS>>YOU A SAIN IMMIGRATION SE>>YOU A SAIN IMMIGRATION SM NEEDS A SAIN LEADER.>>LAWS MATTER, AND IT MATTERS. WHO COME HERE SEEKING ASYLUM. THAT IS NOT A CRIME.>>Tucker: LAWS MATTER? ELIZABETH WARREN, YES OF ALL PEOPLE JUST SAID THAT. AMAZINGLY, NOBODY IN THE ROOM PUSHED BACK AGAINST HER SAYING THAT. THERE ARE A LOT OF WEAK MEN IN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. IT’S ONE OF THE BIGGEST PROBLEMS ACTUALLY. A NORMAL CANDIDATE WOULD HAVE ROASTED HER. LAWS MATTER? PLEASE. ELIZABETH WARREN’S ENTIRE IMMIGRATION PROGRAM IS BASED ON THE FACT THAT LAWS DON’T MATTER AT ALL. IF LAWS MATTER, WE WOULDN’T HAVE ILLEGAL ALIENS LIVING INSIDE OUR BORDERS. IF LAWS MATTERED, WE WANTED TO HAVE SANCTUARY CITIES. IF LAWS MATTERED, DEMOCRATS WHEN IT BE SHARING LANGUAGE GUIDES TELLING ILLEGALS HOW TO EVADE ELIZABETH WARREN, CLAIMING THE
