How Jay Leno Changed the Politics of Late Night



when I started hosting marijuana was illegal and you can smoke cigarettes any place you wanted I believe he did the greatest monologue ever and I think it was because of his political sensibility and the worst thing about losing this job I'm no longer cover NBC I'd have to sign up for Obamacare after 22 years as the host of The Tonight Show Jay Leno said goodbye to late night though he was no favorite of TV critics Leno held the top ratings spot for over two decades after succeeding the legendary Johnny Carson recent TV sat down with longtime Leno producer Dave Berg author of the book behind the curtain an insider's look at Jay Leno's Tonight Show to discuss lenez legacy of elevating politics and late-night talk Johnny Carson who of course is a legend the greatest there ever was he set the bar very high for all of us however Johnnie emphasized entertainers on his show I'm not saying he didn't have politico's from time to time he did but the emphasis was on entertainers well the strategy that we used to kind of expand and maybe get better ratings was to move beyond entertainers and I think that this is what distinguished Jay not only in the guests that he chose I mean basically we had every major presidential candidate from 1996 on but also in his monologue which he expanded it from Johnnie's with seven minutes and Jay expanded his to 14 minutes and added a lot of political humor he set the pace I believe he did the greatest monologue ever and I think it was because of his political Sensibility you talked about having presidential candidates the you guys were actually the first to get a sitting president when you had President Obama on can you talk a little bit about the story of how that happened five years before he became president I was watching him speak at the Democratic convention in Boston and that was in 2004 Kerry was the the Democratic candidate that year and and I had never heard of this unknown political Illinois and I thought oh my gosh this guy is the best speak I have seen since Ronald Reagan I'm not talking politics here I'm just talking about the ability to communicate and I was very impressed and the next day I started calling on his people to express an interest in getting him on the show now we did finally land him on the show as as an author the the audacity of hope' when he was a presidential candidate so when he did finally agree to appear as a president he had already been on he had already had a trust yet and it kind of a chemistry with Jay but nevertheless when he decided to appear on the show on his 59th day in office that was amazing because no other president had ever appeared on a late-night show it was actually considered unpresidential that was a huge moment and you know looking back at that why do you think it took so long for that to happen I mean do you think that politicians are kind of afraid of going on platforms like that because they're afraid of being made fun of I do and as I always told the political people actually we're much easier I'm not saying Jay didn't ask tough questions he did he certainly did but we weren't Meet the Press and Jays attitude about guests is he believed that that it was a family environment at the Tonight Show and and he actually acted as though guests were like guests in his house so he always said I'm not going to throw you a curve ball you don't have to worry I'm I will ask you a tough question I'll ask you this I'll ask you that but he never never asked gotcha questions so we were actually easier than Meet the Press it never seemed like he was really accepted among you know the comedic elite and here he is now he's going to get the Mark Twain humor award at the Kennedy Center this fall what do you think is so misunderstood about his success I think that the critics the Television Critics basically early on starting when Jay took over from Johnny Carson early on they said this guy doesn't have the chops he doesn't have what Johnny Carson has and by the way he's not cut from the same fabric as David Letterman it is so much more edgy and they are the ones that basically set the tone for for how J was perceived among if I may use the word among elitist not among the folks who live in the flyover States those wonderful flyover States but among the elitist who felt that J's humor was much too milquetoast actually I think J's approach was was exactly what it should be what you want to do is you want to tell jokes that appeal to a broad band of viewers we weren't narrowcasting we were trying to reach a wide group of people and I think J did that very successfully and I think the Mark Twain award is justification finally J gets the credit that he deserves and a lot of people you know would always try to tie a political label to him but you know because we have more of a libertarian audience do you think kind of that independent streak that he was more working-class he worked really hard I know you talked a lot about his work ethic in the book do you think that kind of came through the fact that he was just a little bit more independent and that's maybe why he broke through to such a larger audience I definitely do and again I think you could see it in his monologue jokes I think that resonated with people I really do the fact is in the last you know two three years none of the other late night hosts were doing Obama jokes well Jay felt well J happens to like President Obama but his feeling was you got to go after who's ever in power and he alone was doing jokes about Obama for a long time finally when Obamacare you know became the disaster that it was at least for a while the other host started following soon do you think that his willingness cuz I see it now with Kimmel yeah and a little bit with Fallon and Letterman they've kind of followed suit but do you think that that is kind of one of his main legacies as far as you know being an equal opportunity offender oh my gosh yes I mean I really think that distinguishes him and and yes if I understand your question properly there doesn't seem to be a healthy skepticism of those in power and that concerns me because late night is so influential especially among younger people I think yeah and you know there's also kind of this I guess you can call it a PC movement going on where you've seen a lot of comedians lately having to you know apologize for jokes do you how do you think that affects the material right or did it really come into play when he was crafting his monologue that was a big problem and I have to say that among the the comedy writers and comedians whether they were liberal a conservative they hate PC they do not like political correctness because that restricts them in their job and that was very damaging and it hurt a lot of jokes we had to sort of water down some of the jokes everybody did and and I think everyone suffers as a result you're you're missing SATA you're missing good satire when you look at who's out there now you have Kimmel you have Letterman as stepping down you have Colbert coming in now and now you have Jimmy Fallon who do you see kind of emerging as as that standard bearer of being the top dog I actually am a Jimmy Fallon guy and I like Jimmy Kimmel they're both really good I watched them both but Jimmy Fallon when he took over for Jay honestly I did not want to like him I didn't like the fact that Jay was you know being let go when he was doing so well but when I started watching a Fallon on a regular basis he won me over and I like him because he continues with that really positive upbeat attitude that that Jay represented and he has brought kind of a new perspective he has redefined late-night on his own terms now it's about comedy bits it's about performance the guests get involved they want to get involved Jimmy gets involved because he's so talented and he has done very well I would go so far as to call him the king of late-night he's going to be the guy to be that's my feeling

President Obama Speaks in Selma [Complete Speech]



It is a rare honor in this life to follow
one of your heroes. And John Lewis is one of my heroes. Now, I have to imagine that when a younger
John Lewis woke up that morning fifty years ago and made his way to Brown Chapel, heroics
were not on his mind. A day like this was not on his mind. Young folks with bedrolls and backpacks were
milling about. Veterans of the movement trained newcomers
in the tactics of non-violence; the right way to protect yourself when attacked. A doctor described what tear gas does to the
body, while marchers scribbled down instructions for contacting their loved ones. The air was thick with doubt, anticipation,
and fear. They comforted themselves with the final verse
of the final hymn they sung: No matter what may be the test, God will take
care of you; Lean, weary one, upon His breast, God will
take care of you. Then, his knapsack stocked with an apple,
a toothbrush, a book on government – all you need for a night behind bars – John
Lewis led them out of the church on a mission to change America. President Bush and Mrs. Bush, Governor Bentley,
Members of Congress, Mayor Evans, Reverend Strong, friends and fellow Americans:
There are places, and moments in America where this nation’s destiny has been decided. Many are sites of war – Concord and Lexington,
Appomattox and Gettysburg. Others are sites that symbolize the daring
of America’s character – Independence Hall and Seneca Falls, Kitty Hawk and Cape
Canaveral. Selma is such a place. In one afternoon fifty years ago, so much
of our turbulent history – the stain of slavery and anguish of civil war; the yoke
of segregation and tyranny of Jim Crow; the death of four little girls in Birmingham,
and the dream of a Baptist preacher – met on this bridge. It was not a clash of armies, but a clash
of wills; a contest to determine the meaning of America. And because of men and women like John Lewis,
Joseph Lowery, Hosea Williams, Amelia Boynton, Diane Nash, Ralph Abernathy, C.T. Vivian, Andrew Young, Fred Shuttlesworth,
Dr. King, and so many more, the idea of a just America, a fair America, an inclusive
America, a generous America – that idea ultimately triumphed. As is true across the landscape of American
history, we cannot examine this moment in isolation. The march on Selma was part of a broader campaign
that spanned generations; the leaders that day part of a long line of heroes. We gather here to celebrate them. We gather here to honor the courage of ordinary
Americans willing to endure billy clubs and the chastening rod; tear gas and the trampling
hoof; men and women who despite the gush of blood and splintered bone would stay true
to their North Star and keep marching toward justice. They did as Scripture instructed: “Rejoice
in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.” And in the days to come, they went back again
and again. When the trumpet call sounded for more to
join, the people came – black and white, young and old, Christian and Jew, waving the
American flag and singing the same anthems full of faith and hope. A white newsman, Bill Plante, who covered
the marches then and who is with us here today, quipped that the growing number of white people
lowered the quality of the singing. To those who marched, though, those old gospel
songs must have never sounded so sweet. In time, their chorus would reach President
Johnson. And he would send them protection, echoing
their call for the nation and the world to hear:
“We shall overcome.” What enormous faith these men and women had. Faith in God – but also faith in America. The Americans who crossed this bridge were
not physically imposing. But they gave courage to millions. They held no elected office. But they led a nation. They marched as Americans who had endured
hundreds of years of brutal violence, and countless daily indignities – but they didn’t
seek special treatment, just the equal treatment promised to them almost a century before. What they did here will reverberate through
the ages. Not because the change they won was preordained;
not because their victory was complete; but because they proved that nonviolent change
is possible; that love and hope can conquer hate. As we commemorate their achievement, we are
well-served to remember that at the time of the marches, many in power condemned rather
than praised them. Back then, they were called Communists, half-breeds,
outside agitators, sexual and moral degenerates, and worse – everything but the name their
parents gave them. Their faith was questioned. Their lives were threatened. Their patriotism was challenged. And yet, what could be more American than
what happened in this place? What could more profoundly vindicate the idea
of America than plain and humble people – the unsung, the downtrodden, the dreamers not
of high station, not born to wealth or privilege, not of one religious tradition but many – coming
together to shape their country’s course? What greater expression of faith in the American
experiment than this; what greater form of patriotism is there; than the belief that
America is not yet finished, that we are strong enough to be self-critical, that each successive
generation can look upon our imperfections and decide that it is in our power to remake
this nation to more closely align with our highest ideals? That’s why Selma is not some outlier in
the American experience. That’s why it’s not a museum or static
monument to behold from a distance. It is instead the manifestation of a creed
written into our founding documents: “We the People…in order to form a more
perfect union.” “We hold these truths to be self-evident,
that all men are created equal.” These are not just words. They are a living thing, a call to action,
a roadmap for citizenship and an insistence in the capacity of free men and women to shape
our own destiny. For founders like Franklin and Jefferson,
for leaders like Lincoln and FDR, the success of our experiment in self-government rested
on engaging all our citizens in this work. That’s what we celebrate here in Selma. That’s what this movement was all about,
one leg in our long journey toward freedom. The American instinct that led these young
men and women to pick up the torch and cross this bridge is the same instinct that moved
patriots to choose revolution over tyranny. It’s the same instinct that drew immigrants
from across oceans and the Rio Grande; the same instinct that led women to reach for
the ballot and workers to organize against an unjust status quo; the same instinct that
led us to plant a flag at Iwo Jima and on the surface of the Moon. It’s the idea held by generations of citizens
who believed that America is a constant work in progress; who believed that loving this
country requires more than singing its praises or avoiding uncomfortable truths. It requires the occasional disruption, the
willingness to speak out for what’s right and shake up the status quo. That’s what makes us unique, and cements
our reputation as a beacon of opportunity. Young people behind the Iron Curtain would
see Selma and eventually tear down a wall. Young people in Soweto would hear Bobby Kennedy
talk about ripples of hope and eventually banish the scourge of apartheid. Young people in Burma went to prison rather
than submit to military rule. From the streets of Tunis to the Maidan in
Ukraine, this generation of young people can draw strength from this place, where the powerless
could change the world’s greatest superpower, and push their leaders to expand the boundaries
of freedom. They saw that idea made real in Selma, Alabama. They saw it made real in America. Because of campaigns like this, a Voting Rights
Act was passed. Political, economic, and social barriers came
down, and the change these men and women wrought is visible here today in the presence of African-Americans
who run boardrooms, who sit on the bench, who serve in elected office from small towns
to big cities; from the Congressional Black Caucus to the Oval Office. Because of what they did, the doors of opportunity
swung open not just for African-Americans, but for every American. Women marched through those doors. Latinos marched through those doors. Asian-Americans, gay Americans, and Americans
with disabilities came through those doors. Their endeavors gave the entire South the
chance to rise again, not by reasserting the past, but by transcending the past. What a glorious thing, Dr. King might say. What a solemn debt we owe. Which leads us to ask, just how might we repay
that debt? First and foremost, we have to recognize that
one day’s commemoration, no matter how special, is not enough. If Selma taught us anything, it’s that our
work is never done – the American experiment in self-government gives work and purpose
to each generation. Selma teaches us, too, that action requires
that we shed our cynicism. For when it comes to the pursuit of justice,
we can afford neither complacency nor despair. Just this week, I was asked whether I thought
the Department of Justice’s Ferguson report shows that, with respect to race, little has
changed in this country. I understand the question, for the report’s
narrative was woefully familiar. It evoked the kind of abuse and disregard
for citizens that spawned the Civil Rights Movement. But I rejected the notion that nothing’s
changed. What happened in Ferguson may not be unique,
but it’s no longer endemic, or sanctioned by law and custom; and before the Civil Rights
Movement, it most surely was. We do a disservice to the cause of justice
by intimating that bias and discrimination are immutable, or that racial division is
inherent to America. If you think nothing’s changed in the past
fifty years, ask somebody who lived through the Selma or Chicago or L.A. of the Fifties. Ask the female CEO who once might have been
assigned to the secretarial pool if nothing’s changed. Ask your gay friend if it’s easier to be
out and proud in America now than it was thirty years ago. To deny this progress – our progress – would
be to rob us of our own agency; our responsibility to do what we can to make America better. Of course, a more common mistake is to suggest
that racism is banished, that the work that drew men and women to Selma is complete, and
that whatever racial tensions remain are a consequence of those seeking to play the “race
card” for their own purposes. We don’t need the Ferguson report to know
that’s not true. We just need to open our eyes, and ears, and
hearts, to know that this nation’s racial history still casts its long shadow upon us. We know the march is not yet over, the race
is not yet won, and that reaching that blessed destination where we are judged by the content
of our character – requires admitting as much. “We are capable of bearing a great burden,”
James Baldwin wrote, “once we discover that the burden is reality and arrive where reality
is.” This is work for all Americans, and not just
some. Not just whites. Not just blacks. If we want to honor the courage of those who
marched that day, then all of us are called to possess their moral imagination. All of us will need to feel, as they did,
the fierce urgency of now. All of us need to recognize, as they did,
that change depends on our actions, our attitudes, the things we teach our children. And if we make such effort, no matter how
hard it may seem, laws can be passed, and consciences can be stirred, and consensus
can be built. With such effort, we can make sure our criminal
justice system serves all and not just some. Together, we can raise the level of mutual
trust that policing is built on – the idea that police officers are members of the communities
they risk their lives to protect, and citizens in Ferguson and New York and Cleveland just
want the same thing young people here marched for – the protection of the law. Together, we can address unfair sentencing,
and overcrowded prisons, and the stunted circumstances that rob too many boys of the chance to become
men, and rob the nation of too many men who could be good dads, and workers, and neighbors. With effort, we can roll back poverty and
the roadblocks to opportunity. Americans don’t accept a free ride for anyone,
nor do we believe in equality of outcomes. But we do expect equal opportunity, and if
we really mean it, if we’re willing to sacrifice for it, then we can make sure every child
gets an education suitable to this new century, one that expands imaginations and lifts their
sights and gives them skills. We can make sure every person willing to work
has the dignity of a job, and a fair wage, and a real voice, and sturdier rungs on that
ladder into the middle class. And with effort, we can protect the foundation
stone of our democracy for which so many marched across this bridge – and that is the right
to vote. Right now, in 2015, fifty years after Selma,
there are laws across this country designed to make it harder for people to vote. As we speak, more of such laws are being proposed. Meanwhile, the Voting Rights Act, the culmination
of so much blood and sweat and tears, the product of so much sacrifice in the face of
wanton violence, stands weakened, its future subject to partisan rancor. How can that be? The Voting Rights Act was one of the crowning
achievements of our democracy, the result of Republican and Democratic effort. President Reagan signed its renewal when he
was in office. President Bush signed its renewal when he
was in office. One hundred Members of Congress have come
here today to honor people who were willing to die for the right it protects. If we want to honor this day, let these hundred
go back to Washington, and gather four hundred more, and together, pledge to make it their
mission to restore the law this year. Of course, our democracy is not the task of
Congress alone, or the courts alone, or the President alone. If every new voter suppression law was struck
down today, we’d still have one of the lowest voting rates among free peoples. Fifty years ago, registering to vote here
in Selma and much of the South meant guessing the number of jellybeans in a jar or bubbles
on a bar of soap. It meant risking your dignity, and sometimes,
your life. What is our excuse today for not voting? How do we so casually discard the right for
which so many fought? How do we so fully give away our power, our
voice, in shaping America’s future? Fellow marchers, so much has changed in fifty
years. We’ve endured war, and fashioned peace. We’ve seen technological wonders that touch
every aspect of our lives, and take for granted convenience our parents might scarcely imagine. But what has not changed is the imperative
of citizenship, that willingness of a 26 year-old deacon, or a Unitarian minister, or a young
mother of five, to decide they loved this country so much that they’d risk everything
to realize its promise. That’s what it means to love America. That’s what it means to believe in America. That’s what it means when we say America
is exceptional. For we were born of change. We broke the old aristocracies, declaring
ourselves entitled not by bloodline, but endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights. We secure our rights and responsibilities
through a system of self-government, of and by and for the people. That’s why we argue and fight with so much
passion and conviction, because we know our efforts matter. We know America is what we make of it. We are Lewis and Clark and Sacajawea – pioneers
who braved the unfamiliar, followed by a stampede of farmers and miners, entrepreneurs and hucksters. That’s our spirit. We are Sojourner Truth and Fannie Lou Hamer,
women who could do as much as any man and then some; and we’re Susan B. Anthony, who
shook the system until the law reflected that truth. That’s our character. We’re the immigrants who stowed away on
ships to reach these shores, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free – Holocaust survivors,
Soviet defectors, the Lost Boys of Sudan. We are the hopeful strivers who cross the
Rio Grande because they want their kids to know a better life. That’s how we came to be. We’re the slaves who built the White House
and the economy of the South. We’re the ranch hands and cowboys who opened
the West, and countless laborers who laid rail, and raised skyscrapers, and organized
for workers’ rights. We’re the fresh-faced GIs who fought to
liberate a continent, and we’re the Tuskeegee Airmen, Navajo code-talkers, and Japanese-Americans
who fought for this country even as their own liberty had been denied. We’re the firefighters who rushed into those
buildings on 9/11, and the volunteers who signed up to fight in Afghanistan and Iraq. We are the gay Americans whose blood ran on
the streets of San Francisco and New York, just as blood ran down this bridge. We are storytellers, writers, poets, and artists
who abhor unfairness, and despise hypocrisy, and give voice to the voiceless, and tell
truths that need to be told. We are the inventors of gospel and jazz and
the blues, bluegrass and country, hip-hop and rock and roll, our very own sounds with
all the sweet sorrow and reckless joy of freedom. We are Jackie Robinson, enduring scorn and
spiked cleats and pitches coming straight to his head, and stealing home in the World
Series anyway. We are the people Langston Hughes wrote of,
who “build our temples for tomorrow, strong as we know how.” We are the people Emerson wrote of, “who
for truth and honor’s sake stand fast and suffer long;” who are “never tired, so
long as we can see far enough.” That’s what America is. Not stock photos or airbrushed history or
feeble attempts to define some of us as more American as others. We respect the past, but we don’t pine for
it. We don’t fear the future; we grab for it. America is not some fragile thing; we are
large, in the words of Whitman, containing multitudes. We are boisterous and diverse and full of
energy, perpetually young in spirit. That’s why someone like John Lewis at the
ripe age of 25 could lead a mighty march. And that’s what the young people here today
and listening all across the country must take away from this day. You are America. Unconstrained by habits and convention. Unencumbered by what is, and ready to seize
what ought to be. For everywhere in this country, there are
first steps to be taken, and new ground to cover, and bridges to be crossed. And it is you, the young and fearless at heart,
the most diverse and educated generation in our history, who the nation is waiting to
follow. Because Selma shows us that America is not
the project of any one person. Because the single most powerful word in our
democracy is the word “We.” We The People. We Shall Overcome. Yes We Can. It is owned by no one. It belongs to everyone. Oh, what a glorious task we are given, to
continually try to improve this great nation of ours. Fifty years from Bloody Sunday, our march
is not yet finished. But we are getting closer. Two hundred and thirty-nine years after this
nation’s founding, our union is not yet perfect. But we are getting closer. Our job’s easier because somebody already
got us through that first mile. Somebody already got us over that bridge. When it feels the road’s too hard, when
the torch we’ve been passed feels too heavy, we will remember these early travelers, and
draw strength from their example, and hold firmly the words of the prophet Isaiah:
“Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not be faint.” We honor those who walked so we could run. We must run so our children soar. And we will not grow weary. For we believe in the power of an awesome
God, and we believe in this country’s sacred promise. May He bless those warriors of justice no
longer with us, and bless the United States of America.

Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, Performed By President Obama



four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth upon this continent a new nation conceived in Liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal now we are engaged in a great Civil War testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure we are met on a great battlefield of that war we have come to dedicate a portion of it as a final resting place for those who died here but the nation might live this we may an all for Friday do but in a larger sense we cannot dedicate we cannot consecrate we cannot hallow this ground the brave men living and dead who struggled here have hallowed it far above our poor power to add or detract the world will little note nor long remember what we say while it can never forget what they did here it is rather for us the living we here be dedicated to the great task remaining before us but from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion that we here highly resolve these dead shall not have died in vain that the nation shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people by the people for the people shall not perish from the earth

President Obama's Message on the Ebola Virus



PRESIDENT OBAMA: Hello. I want to take a few moments to speak directly
to you—the people of West Africa, especially in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria. On behalf of the American people, I want you
to know that our prayers are with those of you who have lost loved ones during this terrible
outbreak of Ebola. Along with our partners around the world,
the United States is working with your governments to help stop this disease. And the first step in this fight is knowing
the facts. First, Ebola is not spread through the air
like the flu. You cannot get it from casual contact, like
sitting next to someone on a bus. You cannot get it from another person until
they show the symptoms of the disease, like fever. Second, the most common way you can get Ebola
is by touching the body fluids of someone who’s sick or has died from it—like their
sweat, saliva or blood—or through a contaminated item, like a needle. That’s why the disease is continuing to
spread where patients are being cared for at home or during burials when families and
friends lay their loved one to rest. That’s why health care workers wear protection
like gloves and masks. It’s why, if you feel sick with a high fever,
you should get help right away—because with prompt treatment in a medical center, nearly
half of patients can recover. And it’s why, when burying someone who died
from this disease, it’s important to not directly touch their body; you can respect
your traditions and honor your loved ones without risking the lives of the living. Stopping this disease won’t be easy—but
we know how to do it. You are not alone. Together, we can treat those who are sick
with respect and dignity. We can save lives. And our countries can work together to improve
public health, so this kind of outbreak doesn’t happen again. In this urgent work—and in building a stronger
and more prosperous Africa—you’ll continue to have a partner in me and in the United
States of America.

How the President’s Trade Deal Puts the American Cherry on Top



this is a cherry well this is no ordinary cherry it's an American cherry homegrown and picked with love on a family farm in Washington State today our cherry is getting ready to be enjoyed the world over after all the u.s. is one of the world's largest exporters of cherries in fact Americans grow and manufacture a lot of top-notch goods like cars music and bacon that people across the world want to buy and that's important for our economy because 95% of the world's consumers live outside our borders and when they buy our made in America products they support better paying jobs for middle-class Americans here at home so how do we get our cherry into their community markets American cherries are packaged and transported to be sold abroad but right now our cherry like most made in America Goods face too many obstacles to make it to market like the 10% tax on our Washington farmers cherry if he wants to sell it in Vietnam meanwhile cherries from Australian farmers will be sold in Vietnam with zero taxes next year that's where trade agreements can help right now President Obama is working with Congress to secure his trade agreement the trans-pacific partnership or the TPP this trade agreement will write the rules so American workers can sell their goods to the fastest-growing markets without being blocked or put at an unfair disadvantage and that's the kind of deal that puts the American worker and the American cherry on top the trans-pacific partnership more made in America exports abroad more good jobs here at home

Donald Trump Slams President Obama and Incompetent Politicians on Hannity



while holding a press conference earlier today in Ethiopia President Obama ripped the 2016 Republican presidential field and specifically called out the front-runner Donald Trump watch this when you look at what's happened with mr. Trump when he's made some of the remarks that for example challenged the heroism mr. McCain the Republican Party is shocked and yet that arises out of a culture where you know those kinds of outrageous attacks have become far too commonplace point is we're creating a culture that is not conducive to good policy or good politics the American people deserve better certainly presidential debates deserve better the same guy that referred to Republicans as social Darwinist and said Republicans won dirty air and dirty water really okay here with reaction to the president's comments 2016 GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump sir how are you how are you Shawn I assume you probably want to respond to that he's used a lot of incendiary language throughout his career I can go through the laundry list but you're pretty pretty aware of all the things he said well look number one he took my my statement and cut it up like everybody else and you are the first to admit I mean if people read it whether it's Cheryl Atkinson who did an analysis and that doesn't make me a fan of John McCain because he's led a lot of people down especially the veterans especially at the border he has really failed the veterans and he's really really failed at the border and I'm very open about that and they just did a recent poll that I'm much more popular with the veterans than John McCain is and the reason is that he doesn't do the job he talks but he doesn't do the job so I'm disappointed in him but equally with the president he's probably the worst president in the history of our country he's a very divisive person which is why he brings this kind of stuff up and he should have devoted more time to working on a good nuclear deal with Iran and of what he's doing because he has just been a disaster for our country well I don't disagree all right a lot of people all weekend long wherever I went people said Donald Trump what why do you think Donald Trump is leading in all the polls you're winning nationally you're winning in New Hampshire you're you're doing very well even in Iowa you're in second place two points behind Scott Walker in a recent poll but I have one poll has you at 24% the next closest competitor 13% I have my answer what is your answer why are you doing so well I think people are in tired you're really tired of these incompetent politicians where it's all talk no action I didn't want to be doing this I love my business I built a tremendous company and you see that I did my filings everyone said wow that's much bigger and much better than we even thought I built an incredible company I've had tremendous success I love doing it but I'm so sick and tired of watching this incompetent politicians that are all talk no action they don't do anything and I just felt that I had to do it and I guess we engender some great love because I have the biggest crowds of anybody by far and I have the biggest standing ovations people agree I'm not sure they like me but they certainly like my message I hope they like me I think I'm a nice guy but I'm tired of watching these all talk no action politicians the only thing they want to do is keep their job and that's just not for me and it resonates with all of these people that are for Trump I'll give you another example Walker I mean I was very nice to him he gave me award came up to my office and gave me an award three four months ago a beautiful plaque it was very nice but in the end they said something a little nasty about me and what did i do I looked in to Wisconsin and I loved Wisconsin but they have a tremendous budget deficit of 2.2 billion dollars which is unthinkable they were supposed to have a surplus of a billion and they have 2.2 billion their jobs are a disaster their schools are a disaster their roads are a disaster they don't want to spend any money on roads because they he doesn't want to raise taxes so he's borrowing and borrowing and you know when the facts come out about Scott Walker I think he's going to plunge in the polls because his and obviously he's also very divisive because it's a very divisive state I mean everybody's fighting with everyone so I think that's gonna it's going to be next I think he's going to be the next one to fall but I think in the end Chon just to answer your question people are tired of incompetent politicians running our country when they see a deal like the Iran nuclear deal when they see how badly our veterans are taken care of they're just sick and tired of it you know there's a recent poll of Pew poll that came out that showed that since January Republicans have lost 18 percentage points in terms of their support and I would argue there's a reason for it they promised they'd stop the president's executive amnesty they didn't do that they've been promising to repeal and replace Obamacare forever they won't use their constitutional authority to do that they won't stop sanctuary cities and even with the Iranian deal when they had amendments that would have demanded a recognition of Israel demanded that they release our hostages they didn't even want to add those amendments so when people ask me I say you're willing to fight and the Republican establishment in Washington is not willing to fight is that an accurate description Sean and also I'm not controlled by special interests and lobbyists and donors I don't need any money I'm using my own money so the lobbyists and the donors they're not giving me like in Bush's case a hundred million dollars plus in Hillary Clinton 50 million dollars plus Walker all these guys they control by the people that give him the money look who was the king of that for many years me I mean you give money and you don't ask for anything you have total power over these people believe me total power and if it's bad for the country and good for them the candidate whether it's Bush or whether it's Walker or Hillary or whoever it might be they're going to do what their donors and lobbyists tell them what to do that's not good for the country I know the system better than anybody and now I'm running because our cut we're not gonna have a country soon we don't have borders we don't have law enforcement they've taken all of the power away from our policemen and sure you have a couple of bad apples and you have some bad decisions being made and I hate to see it when I see it but the fact is we don't have law and order we don't have I mean our country's going to hell and you know what else we don't have we don't have jobs because our jobs are going to China and so many other countries let me know I just see this all happening and I said it's time to do something about it the issue of third party keeps coming up again and again and again and when it came up last week I wrote Reince Priebus I said because you had said that you weren't being treated well by by the RNC and I said are there any issues between you and mr. Trump he wrote me back and I'm paraphrasing not specific know he's running for the Presidency my job is to remain neutral and my hope is the best man wins that's what he said to me he was asked about this I want to play it for you my job is not the call balls and strikes but to treat everyone respectfully and fairly but certainly I think our candidate should pledge not to run as a third party candidate if Hillary Clinton's going to get beat she's going to get beat by a Republican and most people that run for president run to win and if our candidates want to win then they'll have to run as a Republican can you put this to rest once and for all you're not planning on running third party you have no intention and and you have any issues with do you have any issues at all with the RNC so let me just do this I'm leading in the Republican primaries I mean by I think every poll you have in front of you but I think I'm leading in every poll doing great in New Hampshire doing great in Iowa great places and we're doing really well the way we're going to beat the Democrats and Hillary who would be a disaster by the way she was the worst Secretary of State in history why is she going to be a good president if she ever makes it because I think her emails are a criminal thing they're far beyond what people are talking about but assuming she runs I think I'm the one that can beat her I would much prefer I will say so many people want me to run as an independent I don't want to do that and why would I do that I'm leading with all of the Republicans I'm leading and in some cases as you just stated by a big margin no my preference and what I want to do is to run as a Republican and win and I think I will win I think I'll win in the primaries and I think I'll win ultimately and I'll make our country great again we have so many things to do we don't have time for other things and I think doing a third party would be very difficult and it's not something I want to do with that being said I will say maybe it's the polls but the chairman and the RNC they've treated us with great respect over the last week or so we're getting along with them great they respect what we've done and where we've come from and I think they respect the kind of things I'm saying so I'm not looking to do that at all I want to run as a Republican and I want to win as a Republican and win the big thing so we can take our country back I think the fear is is that if you didn't win the primary that you would leave it open as an option that's what people wanting to hear you take a stand on that whether you win or lose you're gonna support the eventual candidate even though you hope it's you if I'm treated fairly and I get a good fair shot at this and I'm not you know being sabotaged with all sorts of nonsense and a lot of phony ads and they throw a lot of money into it and you know they'll do ads that are all false and you know this and that if I get a good shot a fair shot and I would have no interest in doing that whatsoever all I want to do is be treated fairly and I will say over the last week or so Reince and the whole group they've treated us very fairly you know you I was glad to see this weekend and you just mentioned in this interview that about hillary clinton's criminal misconduct i think a lot of people are looking forward to the time where maybe you're not going after Scott Walker Jeb Bush or or any of the Republican candidates but her if it's you versus her I am – all right you said she's guilty of criminal misconduct where would you go in a campaign if it was you and Hillary well one thing I see is that the Republicans don't hit her very hard and I think they probably say you know look again I became a politician a couple of months ago I'm not a politician they are politicians I think they say well we don't want to hit her hard because we could be there also the fact is what she's done is criminal and if you look at General Petraeus what he did is nothing compared to what she did I mean what he did honestly is nothing by comparison and they destroyed his life his life was destroyed his reputation was destroyed well what she did is far where she gets a subpoena from the United States Congress and her server is gone and her emails are gone and everything is gone and she had classified information I mean if that was General Petraeus and that was General Petraeus he would have gotten to jail for ten years so what she did is far worse and they destroyed his life it's tough stuff yeah well he apparently has classified information which he swore repeatedly she didn't have I want to go back to immigration in it at first it's been an issue that now defines your campaign in many ways okay you build better walls you said that anybody else nobody could build a better wall I hope you can do it quickly because I believe it's a big problem I've been down there are 12 times myself I know the problems firsthand anybody that denies it's just not telling the truth my question to you is what assuming you build the wall first what is your plan for 11 million people that didn't respect our laws in sovereignty or more okay number one don't say just assuming because you got to build a wall it's not an easy thing to do and I'll get it done and believe me I'll do it for the right but I'm also gonna have Mexico pay for it Mexico is making a fortune off of us they will pay for it so just mark my words that's called negotiation the first thing I do is I get rid before the wall before we even start the wall I get rid of the bad ones because we have a lot of really bad apples we have a lot of bad dudes that are causing tremendous problems I mean you see what's happened you know I've been totally exonerated if you look at what people have said how they respect what I you know I brought up this issue I took a lot of heat and now all of a sudden they're saying what Trump did was right and I actually had people in your profession apologized to me for the statements I made that first week because I was right and I'm very proud of bringing up illegal immigration it took it was not easy to do and and I'm very proud of it I would get rid of the bad ones the criminals we have a lot of people here that shouldn't be here and I know what a house them in our jails because it's costing us a fortune I want them to go back to the country where they came from not only Mexico plenty of other countries they're pouring across the border so that's number one then number two you either and these could be some great people but you either have laws or you don't have laws I would get them back I would get them back where they are and I would try and work out a process where they can come in legally but they got a have to come in Legally Shawn it's about laws it's about borders if we don't have a border we don't have a country so I get them out and if they were really outstanding cuz some of these people have been here for a long period of time I'd let them back legally they have to come through a legal system and I'd make that system much faster much like we would I want people to come into the country I love the fact that people come into the country they have to come in Legally not only them other people we welcome people I mean my parents and my grandparents and they came from different parts of the world too we all sort of disco-ball they first have to go back and they go back you'd expedite the process they go back and I would expedite it because some of these people are fantastic people I've been to the border I was there a few days ago I met some people these are fantastic people and they have great reputations within their community so what I do is I Dex Pinet it but you have to have laws if you don't have laws you don't have a country I would get them out and trying the good ones and the bad ones they're gone they never come back they'll never get back into this country but the good ones of which there are many i want to expedite it so they can come back in legally all right Mr Trumper Louise a pleasure thank you congratulations on you good poll numbers appreciate you being with us you
