Trump unleashes on 2020 Democrats during Ohio rally


♪ ♪ AFTER A WEEK HIGHLIGHTED BY DEMOCRATIC DEBATES, PRESIDENT TRUMP FINALLY GETTING HIS CHANCE TO RESPOND, THE PRESIDENT NOT HOLDING BACK AT A RALLY IN OHIO BY UNLEASHING ON HIS 2020 RIVALS, SINGLING OUT ELIZABETH WARREN AND JOE BIDEN WILL ALSO GOING AFTER THEIR PARTY’S PROGRESSIVE POLICIES.>>WHILE REPUBLICANS ARE WORKING EVERY DAY TO BUILD UP OUR COUNTRY, THE RAGE FILLED THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS TRYING TO TEAR AMERICA APART. THE GREAT POCAHONTAS WHO IS NOW LYING AND CHEATING HER WAY TO THE PRESIDENCY IF POSSIBLE, SHE SAID SHE WAS INDIAN AND I SAID THAT I HAVE A MORE INDIAN BLOOD THAN SHE DOES, AND I HAVE NONE, I’M SORRY. FOR THE LAST 20 YEARS, CHINA HAS TAKEN HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS OUT OF OUR COUNTRY, THEY WOULD LOVE TO SEE A GUY LIKE SLEEPY JOE BIDEN WHO HAS NO CLUE WHAT HE’S DOING. THEY WOULD SAY TO SLEEPY JOE, SIR, JUST SIGN RIGHT THERE. OH, OKAY.>>Dana: THE PRESIDENT NOT BACKING DOWN IN THE BATTLE OVER BALTIMORE.>>NO ONE HAS PAID A HIGHER PRICE FOR THE FAR LEFT’S DESTRUCTIVE AGENDA THAN AMERICANS LIVING IN OUR NATION’S INNER CITIES, WE SPEND BILLIONS AND BILLIONS AND BILLIONS FOR YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS AND ITS STOLEN MONEY AND ITS WASTED MONEY AND IT’S A SHAME. THE CONDITIONS IN NANCY PELOSI’S ONCE GREAT CITY OF SAN FRANCISCO ARE DEPLORABLE, THEY ARE DEPLORABLE. LOOK AT LOS ANGELES, WITH THE TENTS AND THE HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, DISGUSTING CONDITIONS. LOOK AT SAN FRANCISCO.>>Dana: ALL RIGHT, THE PRESIDENT, EMILY, SEIZING BACK THE NATIONAL CONVERSATION AFTER TWO LONG NIGHTS OF DEMOCRATIC DEBATE.>>Emily: HE DID INDEED, I THINK IT WAS REALLY WISE THAT HE DIDN’T NAME OF THEM BY THEIR INDIVIDUAL NAMES. IT REMOVED THE BALL FROM THEIR COURT. IT WAS ALSO SMART FOR HIM TO CONTINUE THIS CULTURE WHERE HE’S DRIVING THAT WEDGE BETWEEN URBAN AND SUBURBAN VOTERS. AS THE DEMOCRATS RIGHT NOW ARE PUTTING ALL THEIR POLICIES FOR EVENT HOW MUCH MONEY THEY ARE GOING TO PUT INTO CONTINUING TO SOLVE OR ADDRESS THESE PROBLEMS, HE IS HIGHLIGHTING ALL THIS MONEY THAT’S GOING TO FIX ANYTHING, HE SHOULD BE CAREFUL NOT TO ALIENATE THE SUBURBAN VOTERS THAT IDENTIFY WITH THE CITIES THEY LIVE NEAR.>>Dana: IS INTERESTING BECAUSE OF THE PRESIDENT BRINGS IT UP, THE MEDIA WILL TALK ABOUT IT.>>Greg: OF COURSE, THAT’S WHY THEY SHOULD BE THANKING HIM BECAUSE HE IS SHINING A LIGHT ON A PROBLEM THAT’S BEEN AROUND FOR DECADES. IF YOU LOOK AT ANY DEVASTATED CITY CHANCES ARE YOU WILL SEE THE DEMOCRAT MACHINERY BEHIND IT. THE BIG LOSER FROM LAST NIGHT WAS CNN BECAUSE THERE WAS NO CHANCE. AND THEY WERE — YOU COULD TELL HOW CRESTFALLEN THEY WERE WHEN NO CHANCE SHOWED UP BECAUSE WHAT’S GOING TO BE THEIR PRIME TIME LINEUP? WHAT IS DON LEMON GOING TO REPORT ON? HE MIGHT HAVE TO DO THE NEWS. I THINK OF A CONTRAST IS THE RALLY AND THE DEBATE, SO YOU’RE WITNESSING THIS POSITIVE ENERGY WHICH WAS ACTUALLY DERIVED FROM REAL DATA. YOU CAN’T BE HAPPY IF THE ECONOMY SUCKS SO YOU ARE SEEING THIS RALLY AND EVERYBODY’S HAVING A GOOD TIME, YOU LOOK UP AT THE STAGE AND IT’S A DOOMSDAY CULT. ON ONE SIDE YOU HAVE HAPPY FEET, ON THE OTHER SIDE YOU HAVE SOYLENT GREEN AND ONE OF THEM IS A DELUSION AND THE DATA BACKS UP ONE SIDE, THE OTHER SIDE, IT’S OUR FEELING, DATA VERSES ARE FEELING.>>Dana: IT WASN’T JUST THE DEBATES, IT CARRIED INTO — YOU HAD DEMOCRATIC LEANING GUESTS WRITING ARTICLES OR TWEETS OR BEING ON-AIR, SAYING — HE WATCHED THE DEBATES AND HE FELT LIKE BASICALLY THEY WERE SETTING UP PRESIDENT TRUMP TO WIN AND NOT DOING A GOOD ENOUGH JOB FOR THEMSELVES. SAYING THE DEMOCRATS PUT THEIR WORST FACE FORWARD, HOW DO YOU THINK THE DEBATES WENT?>>>>Capri: I KNOW THIS IS A TOPIC WE WILL PROBABLY TOUCH UPON TIME AND TIME AGAIN BUT AS A DEMOCRAT IT WAS INCREDIBLY FRUSTRATING, PROBABLY NO SURPRISE TO ANYONE AROUND THIS TABLE THAT TUESDAY NIGHT WAS MORE MY CUP OF TEA THAN THE WEDNESDAY EVENING, THEY WERE ACTUALLY — THERE WAS AT LEAST SOME CONVERSATION BETWEEN THE IDEALIST AND THE PRAGMATISTS, AS OPPOSED TO DEMOCRATS GOING AFTER ONE ANOTHER ON WEDNESDAY EVENING WHICH JUST –>>Emily: I WANT TO GO BACK TO THE QUESTION ABOUT INNER CITIES, I TOOK A LOOK AT THIS, ONLY 30 OF THOSE CITIES ACTUALLY HAVE REPUBLICAN MAYORS AS OF THE QUESTION IS, IS THIS AN ISSUE OF CORRELATION OR CAUSALITY, WITH DEMOCRATS BECAUSE THERE’S NO QUESTION THAT THERE ARE VAGUE CITIES THAT ARE FAILING BUT THERE ARE ALSO RURAL AREAS LAGGING, FROM LIFE EXPECTANCY AND EVERYTHING ELSE AND AS SOMEONE WHO REPRESENTED A RURAL AREA, DEMOCRATS WHO PAID ANY ATTENTION TO RURAL COMMUNITIES, THEY ARE SO FORGOTTEN, SO MANY PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT IF WE JUST PAID ATTENTION TO THEM –>>Dana: CONSERVATIVES ALSO SAY, IF WE COULD JUST PAY LITTLE ATTENTION ATTENTION TO THE URBAN AREAS, IF YOU HAVE BOTH PARTIES WORKING TOGETHER, IF YOU HAVE ONE PARTY RULING EITHER WAY IT DOESN’T WORK.>>Greg: IT WILL BE GOOD IF BOTH PARTIES IGNORED BRIAN.>>Brian: YEAH, I GO FOR THE INDEPENDENTS, I GO FOR THEM. A COUPLE THINGS. EMILY, WHAT YOU SAID IS RIGHT, WHEN THE PRESIDENT GOES AHEAD, LOOK WHO’S IN CHARGE. THE PRESIDENT HAS TO GO TO THE NEXT STEP. HERE THEY ARE PRODUCING RESULTS. BEN CARSON IS DOING A LOT OF GREAT THINGS, BEN CARSON OVER THE LAST THREE DAYS WILL HAVE HIS FINEST WEEK AS HS HSS SEC HIS FINEST WEEK AS HS HSS SEE HIS FINEST WEEK AS HS HSS SEA HIS FINEST WEEK AS HS HSS SE SECRETARY. LET ME IN CHARGE OF BALTIMORE, I SEE THE POTENTIAL IN THE URBAN AREAS.>>Dana: THE PRESIDENT AND HIS FOCUS ON ELIZABETH WARREN, THE DEMOCRATS WITHOUT THE SCANDAL OF HER HERITAGE WAS BEHIND HER, HE WAS REMINDING EVERYBODY ABOUT IT.>>Greg: THAT HIS “FREE BIRD,” HE’S ALWAYS WENT TO PLAY THE HITS AND IT WORKS. CAN I JUST SAY SOMETHING TANGENTIAL, A$AP ROCKY COMING BACK TO THE UNITED STATES. THAT’S AN INTERESTING STORY WE SHOULD FOCUS ON. HE WATCHED THE VIDEO, CALLED THE HEAD OF SWEDEN, THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW HE’S HEADING HOME. KIM KARDASHIAN PICKED UP THE PHONE AND TALK TO HIM AND HERE’S THE THING ABOUT THE PRESIDENT. PEOPLE TO GET TO KNOW HIM UNDERSTAND, AND PROBABLY DIDN’T MAKE IT CLEAR LAST NIGHT, PEOPLE WHO DIDN’T KNOW HIM SAY FOR SURE THERE IS NOTHING ABOUT HIM THAT’S RACIST. SOMETIMES HE CAN BE RACIALLY INSENSITIVE AS TIM SCOTT POINTED OUT. HE’S A PERSON IN TROUBLE, HE DOESN’T SEE A BLACK PERSON IN TROUBLE AND THAT’S WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND. HE WENT AFTER ELIJAH CUMMINGS BECAUSE LEISURE ELIJAH CUMMINGS WENT AFTER KEVIN. THAT’S WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TROUBLE UNDERSTANDING’S. YOU DON’T HURT HIS FEELINGS BECAUSE HE KNOWS HE’S NOT A RACIST.>>Capri: HOW I THINK ELIZABETH WARREN WILL FRAME IT, HE’S AFRAID. EVERY TIME YOU GET A NICKNAME FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP IT MEANS YOU GET SOME STREET CREDIBILITY, YOU’RE GOING TO GO OUT ON FUND-RAISER ON IT. IF HE’S RESURRECTING POCAHONTAS AS HIS “FREE BIRD,” IT PLAYS INTO ELIZABETH WARREN’S HAND. I SUGGEST HE LAY OFF.>>Dana: DO YOU WANT TO MAKE A REFERENCE FOR ME GO TO BREAK?>>Emily: IT WAS JUST LIKE I WAS AT THE CONCERT THE OTHER NIGHT, I AGREE, HOWEVER, THE PRESIDENT’S PRESIDENT OF EVERYONE AND SO IT GOES AGAINST THE NARRATIVE THAT A LOT OF THE LEFT HAVE CLUNG TO, THAT HE’S A RACIST NO MATTER WHAT BUT THIS EXAMPLE WILL SERVE ONLY POTENTIALLY TO THOSE ON THE FENCE OR OPEN TO RATIONAL REASO REASON.>>Greg: I ONLY HOPE THAT BRIAN KILMEADE EVER GETS STUCK IN A FOREIGN JAIL,

Tucker: What do you know about Kamala Harris?


MS. OF ♪ ♪>>Tucker: GOOD EVENING AND WELCOME TO TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT AS THE BRETT KAVANAUGH SAGA HAS JUST REMINDED US, THE LEFT ROOTS AROUND FOR PEOPLE THEY DON’T LIKE. THE QUESTION IS, DO THEY APPLY THE SAME STANDARD TO THEMSELVES? WE HAVE BREAKING NEWS ABOUT THE PAST OF A WELL-KNOWN PROGRESSIVE WHO ONCE AGAIN CONFIRMS THAT NOEL. THE STANDARDS ARE NOT THE SAME. WE WILL BRING THAT TO YOU IN JUST A MINUTE. BUT FIRST, HERE’S A QUICK QUIZ. WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU KNOW ABOUT KAMALA HARRIS? CAN YOU NAME THREE THINGS SHE BELIEVES? CAN YOU NAME A SINGLE THING SHE’S ACCOMPLISHED? MOST AMERICANS CANNOT. YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHO SHE IS. THE ONE THING YOU KNOW ABOUT HARRIS IS THAT SHE COULD VERY EASILY BECOME THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. AND YOU KNOW THIS BECAUSE YOU’VE BEEN TOLD THAT CONFIDENTLY AGAIN AND AGAIN ON TELEVISION.>>THE NAME I’M HEARING NOW, BECAUSE THERE WAS A SHE THE PEOPLE SERVING IN POLITICS. NUMBER ONE NAME OF PEOPLE, THE PERSON THAT IS ON PEOPLE’S MIND PEERED KAMALA HARRIS.>>BARACK OBAMA.>>KAMALA HARRIS IS NOW RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT. AND SHE IS ONE OF THE TOP TIER CANDIDATES.>>THERE IS A NEW CHALLENGER TO TRUMP AND SHE’S DRAWING HUGE CROWDS, SENATOR, HARRIS OF CALIFORNIA. TRUMP IS ENVIOUS AS.>>ON PAPER, SHE HAS THE HIGHEST CEILING.>>Tucker: THESE PEOPLE ARE SO STUPID, IT’S REMARKABLE. KAMALA HARRIS, SHE IS A STAR. DESTINE FOR BIG THINGS. SHE’S LIKE OBAMA, 2.0. EVEN MORE DIVERSITY POINTS OUT THERE IN AMERICA. THEY LOVE KAMALA HARRIS. SHE’S LIKE PETE SEEGER. FOR EIGHT MONTHS, THEY TRY TO CRAM THAT STORY DOWN YOUR THROA THROAT. “THE TIMES” HAS LOOKED ALMOST SEMIPOSSIBLE IF WE CLOSE ONE EY EYE. SHE DID NONSTICK JOE BIDEN AS A RACIST. IT LATER EMERGED THAT HARRIS HERSELF HAD DOUBTS ABOUT SCHOOL BUSING. IN FACT, ALMOST NO AFRICAN FAMILY IN AMERICA SUPPORTED SCHOOL BUSING. IT WAS AND A DISASTER. YEAH, BRUTAL. JUST DOMINATED THE GUY. TURNS OUT SHE DIDN’T ACTUALLY DOMINATE ANYBODY AND SHE’S NOT DOMINATING ANYBODY. A NEW POLL FROM CALIFORNIA, OBVIOUSLY HER HOME STATE, WHICH SHE REPRESENTS IS THE UNITED STATES SENATE SHOWS HER WAY IN THE BACK OF THE PACK. SHE IS NOW IN FIFTH PLACE. SHE’S PULLING AT 6%. HERE ARE SOME PERSPECTIVE. AS OF TODAY, KAMALA HARRIS IS USING TO ANDREW YANG, THE ANTI-CIRCUMCISION CANDIDATE. WHATEVER YOU THINK OF HIS IDEAS, HE IS SMART, HE IS ORIGINAL, HE’S TOTALLY GENUINE. HARRIS IS THE OPPOSITE. HARRIS, BY THE WAY IT IS A DAUGHTER OF A STANFORD PROFESSOR, WHICH IS GREAT. GOOD FOR HER. AND YET, SHE SOMEHOW PRETENDS THAT SHE OVERCAME SEGREGATION. SHE IS ALSO A FORMER PROSECUTOR. SHE PUT OTHERS IN JAIL FOR MARIJUANA, BUT SHE NOW BRAGS ABOUT SMOKING IT HERSELF. SHE’S COOL. [LAUGHTER] [LAUGHS] MIND WAS CHILDREN OF PRIVILEGE. THEY FIND THE WHOLE THING TOTALLY UNBEARABLE, BECAUSE IT IS UNBEARABLE. IT LOOKS LIKE THE KAMALA HARRIS CAMPAIGN IS DOOMED TO DRIVE AWAY. EVEN THE PRESS HAS ABANDONED HER. THEIR NEW CRUSH, SENATOR ELIZABETH WARREN IN MASSACHUSETTS.>>HOW CONSEQUENTIAL WAS THAT RALLY LAST NIGHT? NOT JUST WHAT SHE SAID BUT THE FOUR HOURS OF SELFIES AFTERWARD? WE ARE JUST LEARNING THAT SHE TOOK SOME 4,000 SELFIES? FOUR HOURS TAKING SELF’S?>>SHE’S OUT THERE TAKING SELFIES. BECAUSE SHE SPENT FOUR HOURS TAKING SELFIES.>>THAT’S REMARKABLE.>>YEAH, 4,000. THE CAMPAIGN SAYS 59,000 SINCE SHE HAS STARTED RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT.>>SOME PEOPLE WAITED FOR HOURS TO HAVE A SELF HE TAKEN.>>Tucker: THAT’S TRUE. SHE IS IN FACT THE FRONT RUNNER IN THE DEMOCRATIC RACE. TECHNICALLY, JOE BIDEN IS PULLING IN FIRST PLACE, BUT NOBODY EXPECTS THAT TO LAST.>>YOU KNOW, IF I WERE JUST 80 YEARS OLD — [LAUGHTER]>>I DON’T BELIEVE I COULD UNDERTAKE THE DUTIES THAT I EXPERIENCED WHEN I WAS PRESIDEN PRESIDENT. YOU HAVE TO BE VERY FLEXIBLE WITH YOUR MIND. YOU HAD TO BE ABLE TO GO FROM ONE SITE THE SUBJECT FROM N ONE SITE THE SUBJECT FROM T ONE SITE THE SUBJECT FROM E ONE SITE THE SUBJECT FROM .>>Tucker: YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO CONCENTRATE. NOT A SUBTLE DIG. OVER 75 YEARS OLD. YET, SHE WOULD STILL BE WAY YOUNGER THAN JOE BIDEN OR BERNIE SANDERS.

Ingraham: The week that was


THAT’S THE FOCUS OF TONIGHT’S “ANGLE.”>>YOU CAN KIND OF FEEL IT. RIGHT? THE WEATHER IS CHANGING. FALL IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER. I’M TALKING ABOUT THE FALL OF THE DEMOCRATS. IT’S BEEN A TERRIBLE, AWFUL WEEK FOR THEM. CAPPED OFF BY A MISERABLE THREE-HOUR DEBATE ON ABC. FIRST, THERE ARE SIGNS THAT THE DEMOCRATS WILL GIVE TRUMP A WIN. THEY DIDN’T WANT TO DO THIS. BUT THEY’RE GOING TO GIVE TRUMP A WIN. AND I THINK THEY’RE GOING TO ALLOW A VOTE ON THAT U.S. MCA — THE NEW U.S.-MEXICO-CANADA FREE TRADE DEAL. EVEN “THE WASHINGTON POST,” I ALMOST FELL OVER WHEN I READ THIS, SAID IT’S A NO-BRAINER. BRING THE THING UP FOR A VOTE. SECOND THING IT’S BEEN A BAD WEEK FOR THE DEMOCRATS, THE DOW IS NOW UP AROUND 27,000, THE S&P IS AT 3,000. WELL, THAT’S NEAR RECORD TERRITORY FOR THE DOW. UP FOR THE EIGHTH STRAIGHT DAY. NOW, WHAT DOES THIS INDICATE? RENEWED OPTIMISM AMONG CONSUMERS AND BUSINESSES. THIS IS IMPORTANT TOWARD THE CLOSE OF THIS YEAR. THE PRESIDENT AND HIS TEAM, STILL OPEN TO A TRADE DEAL WITH CHINA. A TIGHT LABOR MARKET HERE AT HOME, THAT MEANS WAGES CONTINUE — SEE, A LITTLE BIT OF AN UPTICK. THAT’S ALL GOOD NEWS. I LOVE A TIGHT LABOR MARKET. THIRD, THE DEMOCRATS HAVE NO ANSWER FOR TRUMP ON THE ECONOMY. INSTEAD, WHAT YOU HEARD IN LAST NIGHT’S DEBATE WAS THE SAME TIRED PLATITUDES.>>WE CAN USE TRADE TO HELP BUILD A STRONGER ECONOMY.>>WHAT WE SHOULD BE DOING IS CREATING THE ECONOMY THAT WORKS FOR ALL OF US, NOT 1%.>>THE GOAL OF MY CAMPAIGN IS TO MAKE THIS AN ECONOMY THAT ALLOWS US TO LIVE OUR HUMAN VALUES AND ASPIRATIONS.>>Laura: WE’RE DOING THAT. IN A FEW MOMENTS, WITHE EEL ANALYZE THE DEBATE WITH THE ONLY WAY IT MAKES SENSE, BY THE WAY, BRUTAL SATIRE. BUT FIRST, LET ME SAY NO ONE ON THAT STAGE LOOKED STRONG ENOUGH TO BEAT TRUMP IN 2020. I DON’T WANT TO GET TOO CONFIDENT. TO USE ANOTHER TIRED ANALOGY. BUT THEY JUST DID NOT LOOK LIKE THEY WERE GOING TO BE ABLE TO STAND ON THE STAGE AND DEBATE THIS PRESIDENT ON HIS ACCOMPLISHMENTS. BECAUSE THE DEMOCRAT CANDIDATE LEADING THE PACK STILL, AFTER ALL OF THEIR EFFORTS TO TAKE THEM DOWN, COULD BARELY STRING TOGETHER TWO COHERENT SENTENCES.>>I’M THE GUY THAT BROUGHT THE BRADY BILL INTO FOCUS AND BECAME LAW. I’VE BEEN IN AND OUT OF AFGHANISTAN NOT WITH A GUN. THREE DIFFERENT COUNTRIES, PAKISTAN OWNS THE THREE COUNTY — THE COUNTIES RUN IT. I’LL GO ON AND ON. I’M THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.>>Laura: WOW — HE’S NO LONGER THE VICE PRESIDENT. BUT IT FELT GOOD TO SAY THAT, I’M SURE. ALL OF THE DEMOCRATS ON STAGE DEMONSTRATED IN ONE WAY OR THE OTHER THAT THEY’RE SIMPLY NOT COMPETENT TO GOVERN, EVEN LIBERALS KNOW THIS ISN’T WORKING. THE LEFTY PUBLICATION, “SLATE” EVISCERATED BIDEN’S ANSWER ON THE QUESTION OF REPARATIONS. AND ALL “SLATE” DID WAS MERELY PUBLISH BIDEN’S INCOHERENT ANSWER IN FULL. AND WHEN ABC MODERATORS RAISED THE ISSUE OF TRADE, EVERYONE ON STAGE, EXCEPT ANDREW YANG, WAS CAUGHT STUMBLING OR RESPONDED AGAIN WITH MEANINGLESS BROMIDES. THEY LOOKED LIKE THEY WERE KIND OF 7th GRADERS SHOCKED ABOUT A SURPRISE QUESTION THAT THE TEACHER DROPPED IN ON A HISTORY EXAM. TELL US ABOUT THAT. ELIZABETH WARREN, SHE SAID PROUDLY THAT SHE’S GOING TO BAN ALL FRAKING. GOOD LUCK WINNING TEXAS WITH THAT POSITION, LIZ. BETO’S GUN BUYBACK, A GUN BAN SPELLED DIFFERENTLY. NOT HAPPENING. AND BERNIE SANDERS, HE ALWAYS SEEMED ANGRY. HE KIND OF LOOKS LIKE HE BELONGS TO THAT WALDORF IN THE MUPPETS. THAT’S A GOOD LOOK. ALL KIDDING ASIDE, THIS IS OUR FUTURE. THIS IS OUR LIVES. THIS AMERICA, THE MONEY THAT EVERYBODY HAS EARNED, LOOKED SO HARD TO EARN IN THE PAST FEW YEARS, DO I THINK AMERICANS ARE GOING TO TURN THAT ALL OVER, ALL OF THOSE GANGS, TO, WHAT? ELIZABETH WARREN AND HER GREEN RAW NEW DEAL. OR LET JULIAN “LET THEM ALL IN” CASTRO THROW OPEN THE COUNTRY’S BORDERS? NO WAY. COMPARE TRUMP’S RECORD OF PEACE AND PROSPERITY TO WHAT WILL UNDOUBTEDLY HAPPEN IF ONE OF THE TOP DEM CONTENDERS WIN. I HAVE TO SAY, I DON’T THINK IT’S EVEN CLOSE. PEOPLE WHO DON’T KNOW A LOT ABOUT POLITICS ARE SURE — THEY’RE ABSOLUTELY SURE THAT TRUMP’S PERSONALITY, HIS TWEETS, AND HIS TONE, IT’S ALL GOING TO SINK HIM. HE’S TOO ABRASIVE, TOO COCKY. HE SWINGS AT TOO MANY PITCHES, BLAH, BLAH. ALL I’LL SAY ABOUT THAT IS A LOT OF PEOPLE — THEY DON’T LIKE BILL BELICHICK EITHER. HE’S GRUFF. HE DOESN’T SMILE MUCH. BUT GUESS WHAT, BELICHICK WINS AND WINS AND WINS. A LOT OF PEOPLE DO LIKE THEM, ESPECIALLY WHEN HE WINS. THE TRUTH IS, OBAMA REALLY WAS A GREAT POLITICIAN. YOU’VE GOT TO BE HONEST ABOUT THAT. TERRIFIC. CAPTIVATED A CROWD. NONE OF THE DEMS RUNNING NOW REALLY ARE. IT’S NOT IN THEIR FAULT, IT’S NOT IN THEIR DNA, IT’S NOT IN THEIR SKILL SET. WHAT DO THESE FOLKS DO? JOE BIDEN SHOULD MOVE ON. WRITE HIS MEMOIR, TELL OLD YARNS ABOUT HIS LIFE AS A SENATE OR GROWING UP AS A YOUNG BOY. MAYOR PETE, HE CAN GO BACK TO SOUTH BEND AND FIX THE HORRIBLE CRIME PROBLEM THERE. AND THEN ELIZABETH WARREN, SHE CAN GO BACK TO THE SEQUESTERED LIFE ON A COLLEGE CAMPUS, MAYBE DO SOME DNA RESEARCH. BERNIE SANDER, HE SHOULD JUST LEAVE POLITICS AND RUN ONE OF THOSE FREE SOCIALIST CIRCULARS THAT GET AT THE SUPERMARKET RAILS AGAINST CORRUPT LOCAL POLITICIANS, ALWAYS STACKED UP. AND MAYBE JULIAN CASTRO CAN ASSIST MIGRANT FAMILIES AT THE BORDERS. A LOT OF WORK TO BE DONE THERE. AND COREY BOOKER, HE CAN START HIS OWN VEGAN YOUTUBE CHANNEL, BIG BUSINESS THERE. AMY CLOBECHAR SHOULD BE A PARTNER AT A BIG LAW FIRM AND START ORDERING ASSOCIATES AROUND. KAMELA HARRIS, SHE WOULD BE A GOOD PRESIDENT, AT LIKE A SMALL LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGE. OR MAYBE SHE’D BE A GOODLOE CALL TELEVISION ANCHOR. I COULD SEE THAT. BETO OROURKE SHOULD RUN A SCHOOL OF ROCK FRANCHISE. HE HAS A LOT OF EXPERIENCE IN THAT ARENA. BUT NONE OF THEM, AND I MEAN

Geraldo Rivera blasts Castro for debate attack on Biden


THE MORE RADICAL NOTIONS BUT, JULIAN CASTRO, AND JOAQUIN CASTRO, TWO VERY ACCOMPLISHED PEOPLE. ONE A CABINET SECRETARY AND MAYOR, OTHER ONE A CONGRESSMAN, COMING FROM POVERTY THE WAY HE TOOK ON JOE BIDEN, BEAT UP OLD JOE, I WANTED TO STAND UP TO PROTECT THE FORMER VICE PRESIDENT. THAT WAS LIKE A MUGGING. I DIDN’T LIKE IT. I DIDN’T APPRECIATE IT. IT WAS RUDE. IT WAS ILL-MANNERED. IT WAS FACTUALLY INCORRECT. I THINK HE ELIMINATED HIMSELF IN MANY WAYS FROM THE RACE. TOP THREE DID OKAY. BIDEN WAS LESS VULNERABLE LAST NIGHT THAN HE HAD BEEN IN THE PREVIOUS TWO CONTESTS. ELIZABETH WARREN WAS SO SMART. SO SINCERE. BRIAN: ON BIDEN, YOU CAN’T GIVE HIM A PASS. YOU HAD GENERAL MATTIS JUST WRITE IN A BOOK THAT BIDEN BLEW OFF THE SUGGESTION AND WARNING ABOUT AL QAEDA COMING BACK INTO IRAQ. HE BLEW UP THE QUESTION. HE SAID AFGHANISTAN NEEDS TO BE DIVIDED. HE GOT CONFUSED WITH THAT AND IRAQ. I THINK HIS TEETH ALMOST FELL OUT. HE NEVER ANSWERED A QUESTION.>>THE THING ABOUT BIDEN, BRIAN, WHAT PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR, WHETHER OR NOT THIS GUY HAS THE RIGHT STUFF PHYSICALLY TO STAND THE, DOES HE HAVE THE STAMINA. DOES — BRIAN: I DON’T THINK SO.>>DOES HE HAVE THE PHYSICAL VERB TO STAND UP TO THE CHALLENGES OF THE OFFICE. TO ME I THOUGHT HE WAS LESS FRAGILE LAST NIGHT HE HAD BEEN WITH THE BLOODSHOT EYES LAST TIME AND RAMBLING, KIND OF UNPOINTED ANSWERS THE FIRST TIME AROUND. I THOUGHT HE HAD SETTLED SOME. I DON’T THINK THAT HIS LONG-TERM PROSPECTS IN THAT REGARD, YOU KNOW, PHYSICAL CHARISMA, ARE ALL THAT, ALL THAT GREAT. BUT I DID THINK THAT HE HELD HIS OWN. “CRAZY” BERNIE SANDERS DID ALSO, I THINK THAT HE IS SO KIND OF YOU KNOW, RAMSHACKLE I DON’T THINK HE IS GOING ANYWHERE. AINSLEY: THEY WERE TRYING TO PAINT THE PRESIDENT RACIST. LISTEN TO THE SOUND BITES.>>ANYONE THAT SUPPORT THIS IS IS A RACIST.>>ONLY PEOPLE WHO BUY INTO THE PRESIDENT’S HATEFUL RHETORIC AROUND IMMIGRANTS ARE PEOPLE WHO DON’T KNOW ANYTHING.>>THE FACT THAT WE HAVE A WHITE SUPREMACIST IN THE WHITE HOUSE. HE POSE AS MORTAL THREAT TO PEOPLE OF COLOR ACROSS THIS COUNTRY.>>WE KNOW DONALD TRUMP IS A RACIST. THERE IS NO RED BADGE OF COURAGE FOR CALLING HIM THAT.>>PRESIDENT TRUMP, YOU SPENT THE LAST 2 1/2 YEARS FULL TIME TRYING TO SOW HATE AND DIVISION AMONG US. THAT IS WHY WE HAVE GOTTEN NOTHING DONE. AINSLEY: GERALDO, IS THE PRESIDENT A RACIST?>>YOU KNOW, I LOVE THE PRESIDENT. I HAVE KNOWN HIM FOR 45 YEARS. HE IS NOT A RACIST. I DON’T THINK HE HAS A RACIST BONE IN HISS BODY BUT I HAVE TOLD HIM PERSONALLY, AINSLEY, HIS RHETORIC SOMETIMES IS SO SLOPPILY HE MAKES HIMSELF VULNERABLE. HE OPENS TO THE CHARGE RACISM. RACISM IS THE KIND OF CHARGE SO EASY TO THROW AT YOU, SO DIFFICULT TO REBUT. BUT WHEN THE PRESIDENT SAYS, SHA HOLE COUNTRIES AND NFL PLAYERS THAT KNEEL ARE SONS OF PITCHES, MEXICANS ARE RAPISTS, IMMIGRANTS. HE SHOULD EMPHASIZE THE POSITIVE. HE HAD INTEGRATED ORGANIZATION FROM THE BEGINNING OF HIS BUSINESS CAREER. HE IS A PERSON WHO, YOU KNOW PASSED CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM. THAT IS STUFF HE SHOULD EMBRACE. HIS STAFF SHOULD LOOK FOR LIKE THE COUNTRY. SHOULD BE MORE DIVERSE. THE CHARGE OF RACISM, YOU KNOW I THINK THAT THE PEOPLE ON THAT STAGE PROBABLY WOULD SAY THAT ALL REPUBLICANS ARE RACIST UNLESS THEY DENOUNCE THE PRESIDENT AND DENOUNCE THE GOP.

Tucker: Beto O’Rourke thinks America is immoral


THE PRESIDENT’S CHANCES WILL DEPEND ON WHICH DEMOCRAT RUNS AGAINST HIM. WHO GETS THE NOMINATION? SADLY FOR THE PRESIDENT, THE PRESIDENT WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY NOT BE BETO O’ROURKE. HE’S FALLING AT ABOUT 2%. THAT’S GOOD NEWS FOR AMERICA. HE SPOKE FOR JUST ABOUT 10 MINUTES. IT WAS AMAZING HOW MUCH LUNACY HE MANAGED TO CRAM IN AND SUCH A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. HE BEGAN HIS SPEECH BY DENOUNCING THE COUNTRY’S RACISM. HE ANNOUNCED THAT AMERICA IS AN EVIL NATION.>>THIS IS A COUNTRY THAT HAS BEEN DEFINED BY FOUNDATIONAL SYSTEMIC RACISM SINCE THE VERY FOUNDING OF THIS COUNTRY. AUGUST 20TH OF 1619, THE FIRST TIME THAT AN AFRICAN WAS BROUGHT HERE AGAINST HIS WILL AND MADE TO BRING THE WEALTH OF THIS COUNTRY. THIS IS THE REALITY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AND SOONER OR LATER, IT WAS GOING TO FIND US. IT WASN’T A MATTER OF IF. IT WAS A MATTER OF WHEN.>>Tucker: WHAT A DISGUSTING COUNTRY THIS IS, SAYS BETO. BECAUSE THIS COUNTRY IS FUNDAMENTALLY IMMORAL, AMERICANS DON’T DESERVE THE SAME LIBERTIES THAT THEY HAVE HAD SINCE THE BEGINNING. THEY WOULD USE THE REGISTRY TO SEIZE THE FIREARMS OF LAW-ABIDING AMERICANS.>>THIS IS A COUNTRY THAT HAS PRODUCED THE LEADERSHIP THAT WILL ENSURE THAT WE NOT ONLY HAVE UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS AND READ FLAG LAWS AN END THE SALE OF THOSE WEAPONS, BUT THAT WE GO A NECESSARY STEP FORWARD, AS DIFFICULT AS IT MAY BE. A GUN REGISTRATION IN THIS COUNTRY. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THOSE AR-15s AND AK-47s WILL BE BOUGHT BACK SO THEY ARE NOT ON OUR STREETS, NOT IN OUR HOMES, DO NOT TAKE THE LIVES OF OUR FELLOW AMERICANS.>>Tucker: OF THE MOST NAUSEATING KIND OF TRUST FUND POLITICS THAT BETO JUST PERSONIFIES. BUT REALLY, HE WAS ONLY HALF DONE. THAT SEEMS LIKE A LOT OF INSANITY TO YOU, BUT BETO GOT THAT OVER IN ABOUT 6 MINUTES. HE WENT ON TO SAY THAT AMERICA IS SO EVIL, SO RACIST, THAT IT’S RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL OF THE WORLD’S PROBLEMS. ACCORDING TO BETO, AMERICAN STOMACH AMERICA CAUSES MOST OF THE WORLD’S PROBLEMS.>>Beto: THE VIOLENCE, THE PERSECUTION IS CAUSED NOT BY GOD, NOR BY MOTHER NATURE, BUT BY YOU AND ME.>>Tucker: DID TRUST FUNDS MAKE YOU DECADENT AND STUPID? BETO O’ROURKE EXISTENCE KIND OF ANSWERS THAT QUESTION, DOESN’T IT? WHAT IS THE PRICE WE NEED TO PAY FOR BEING THE SINFUL COUNTRY THAT WE ARE? BETO SAYS THAT WE MUST GIVE AMNESTY.>>Beto: WE ARE GOING TO LEGALIZE. THEY WILL NEVER AGAIN FEAR

How politicians avoid a photo-op fail: Unpacking the staged campaign event


Vassy Kapelos:Here’s a visual
you’re probably used to seeing
during an election:the daily campaign event.One veteran campaign
organizer for the Liberals summed it up like this: “Campaign events are the
lifeblood of an election.”Whether it’s a speech,a rally, a photo op,
or a barbecue,
parties are trying to create
a visual message that media
will pick up on
and that voters will remember.
So the first thing –
the thing above all else – what is the image? What is the headline? So if parties want
their message to stand out, why do we keep seeing versions
of the same thing over and over? ♪ [theme] Jason:Tour is hard.It’s hard to organize.It’s hard to —it’s hard to get everything in
place sometimes.
All the things that we see
it’s because they’re easy.
You have the control over every
factor that you need to control. Vassy:This is Jason Lietaer.He managed the war room
for the Conservative Party
during the 2011 campaign.He and other strategists will
tell you that one single moment can throw off an entire day’s
message, or worse.Remember this?Stockwell Day’s arrival at a
Canadian Alliance event
on a jet ski?Here’s a refresher.It was 2000, and the party was
trying to send a message
that the holiday was over for
Jean Chretien’s liberals.
But the story quickly became
about that jet ski instead,
and they lost control
of their message.
[engine rumbling]Today’s strategists
need to put a lot of thought
into the message,
visuals in particular.They think of it like theatre .They’re setting a scene.Some literally call
it political stagecraft.
Advanced personnel will scout
the location days in advance.
They’re figuring out things
like where to place the media
to get the best camera angles
for the leader.
They’re looking to essentially
choose pictures deliberately
that will convey
their message in an instant, and often convey their message
even when the sound is off. Vassy:Kathleen Monk
is a strategist who’s worked
on federal election
campaigns for the NDP.
Strategists are always looking
to own the photo op. They’re looking to own the
optics of the day, and they do that
in a number of ways.That means everything you see
is there to serve the message,
from the location
to the podium,
to props, and the backdrop.Do you see a kind of formula?Definitely a really significant
risk of just following the same formula all the time is that
every politician is doing the same thing, every leader
is doing the same thing. Vassy:This is Alex Marland.He’s a political scientist
who’s written and edited
a stack of books
on messaging.
Quite frankly,
it’s not really newsworthy. It’s not interesting,
it’s boring. Marlin says you should pay
attention to the backdrop. Take flags for example, they’ve
been a go to for a long time. Alex:A good way
to look prime ministerial
is to have a very large
Canadian flag
draped behind the leader.Believe it or not, they even
have wire hidden within
the flag to make
it stand out straight so that it’s
not, kind of, wilted. Vassy:And the human backdrop,
well, that’s a recent trend.
The theory there is that
showing a leader with people
creates the impression that
they’ve got supporters.
But I have to say in 2015,
I got really tired of that look.It fails to differentiate
between each party,
and every party is standing in
front of a wall of humans.
What’s different between
each of those parties?
Vassy:It can
be risky too, though,
because organizers don’t wantto put someone in the
background
who could derail the message.So that’s a
really big problem for you.
So that’s why people are so
risk averse during a campaign.
The stakes are so high. You can’t recover
from some mistakes. Radio Announcer:
All three parties…
Vassy:In addition to
the campaign announcement,
or the speech,there’s usually a planned eventotherwise known
as the photo op.
The goal is to have
the leader doing something that really reinforces the
policy drop, or a key message, and then on top of it, seem relatable doing it.Richard Nixon’s administration
was reportedly the first
to coin the term “photo op”.So photo ops are,
often in academia,
they’re known as pseudo events,
they’re essentially fake events.The only reason
they’re created
is to try to get media
attention, for example.
Vassy:Like other events,
they’re highly staged too.
And this is maybe
Canada’s best known example of what happens
when they’re not.Robert Stanfield’s
infamous fumble
during the 1974 election.It was an unplanned photo op.The Progressive
Conservative leader
was tossing around a footballwhile his plane
stopped to refuel.
People don’t remember he caught
the first few passes
because this is the image that
made the cover
ofThe Globe and Mail. Because his campaign was
faltering, the one where he dropped and he
just looked so weak when he dropped that football, said everything you needed to
know about that campaign. So what are the rules? There’s definitely
no photo op handbook, but strategists do have, kind
of, a set of dos and don’ts.For some, playing a sport
is off the table.
Others, they don’t wear hats,or don’t go to a place where
you might have to put one on.Some point to this
photo of Gilles Duceppe
wearing a hairnet while
touring a cheese factory.
Sometimes though,
like when it comes to safety,
it’s kind of unavoidable.As for food…You’ll very rarely see a
politician eating. Vassy:And props can seem like a
good idea until they’re not.
There are times
when they can work,
like in the case of Jack
Layton’s cane
except, of course,
that was unplanned.
Kathleen:As he started
to kind of raise the cane
and show that
he was a real fighter, that he had beaten back cancer,and that he was
running the campaign,
that cane almost
became a symbol.
Vassy:That said, strategists
say thinking critically
about a leader’s
wardrobe is also key.
How much risk parties
take is often guided
by the type of campaign
they’re trying to run. If you’re leading, and it looks
like you’re going to win, you take a lot fewer risks
than if you’re, you know, sort of swinging
from the fences. Strategists say this is why
incumbents often have really tightly
controlled leader events. What they’re trying to do is avoid opportunities
for missteps.Former Prime Minister Pierre
Trudeau did it in 1980,
same with Stephen Harper
in 2011, and it paid off.
The Conservatives
won a majority.
But it doesn’t always work.But what it does is it really
creates an opening for populists because populists,
forget all those norms, you know, a populist
will walk through a crowd and just have conversations
that are unscripted.Think challengers like
Justin Trudeau in 2015,
and Jack Layton in 2011.They had less to lose.Ultimately, strategists will
tell you the key is making sure the event represents the
leader’s personality, and that it strikes
the right tone.When it comes to the campaign,try watching
with the volume off.
What images are you seeing?Look for what’s on stage,and who the leaders
are pictured with,
and then ask yourself what
message is getting through?

Politicians do say the same things over and over: You’re not wrong


Vassy Kapelos:Tell me
if this sounds familiar?
The environment
and the economy have to go… [together]
..hand in hand. People are barely getting by, and they’re definitely
not getting ahead. I believe that better
way is possible. Vassy:Those are
called talking points
and as you can see,
a lot of politicians use them.Some are easier to spot than
others, but experts will
tell you that leaning
on them too much
can risk sounding
like a broken record.
As I’ve always
said–said–said. If that’s the case, why do
politicians use them so much? ♪ [theme]A talking point is to try to
keep the politician on message.
It’s to make sure that the
message that was identified as a potential winner for the
party is brought forward bythe candidate,
by the politician,
when he or she
answers a question.
Vassy:This is Karl Belanger.He’s a political strategist and
former national director
of the NDP.When politicians decide to
freelance and say whatever, that’s when you can create
problems for your campaign. That’s why parties
create a message guide. They’ll identify key positions
on any given topic, then they’ll script short
digestible lines- talking points – to reinforce that message. And then politicians
repeat those lines a lot.And keep in mind,
they spend money
on carefully researching
those messages.Think focus groups,
dial groups, online polls.
Political parties want to be
able to control the message. they want to make sure
there’s consistency. They’re concerned
about their brand. Vassy:Alex Marland is a
political scientist.
He’s writing a book
on message discipline.
He says the 24 hour
news cycle has made
talking points essential.There’s no question that
politicians are using talking points
more than they did, but that’s partly because
they’re being required to speak more often
than they did. Vassy:Leaders need
to be able to respond
to a range of questions,and no one wants
to be caught off guard.
For example…We have recently switched to
drinking water bottles out of– water out of– When we have water bottles out
of a plastic– Sorry. Away from plastic, towards
paper, uh, like drink box, water bottles sort of things. Vassy:Trudeau had just
announced a plan to ban
single use plastics
across the country.
He didn’t seem to expect
a question about how
his own family cuts down on
plastic waste.
One of the earliest examples
of message control in Canada is in this article from 1911.It describes something called
the Speaker’s Handbook.
It was basically an
encyclopaedia of party speeches
and answers to questions raised
in Parliament over the years.
During a campaign year,parties would send out their
handbook to candidates
across the country
to use in their own speeches.
Strategists call this imposing
message discipline.
Today it’s maybe even more
important and that Speaker’s Handbook has evolved into daily
emails with talking points on any given issue
during the campaign. Talking points help them
understand fairly quickly what their party’s
position is and allows them
to be consistent with other members
of their party. It’s why you sometimes
see party politicians and cabinet ministers repeating
exactly the same lines as the party’s leader. The clean environment and a
strong economy go hand-in-hand. People are barely getting by,
they’re not getting ahead. And in the case of local
candidates, parties really don’t
want anyone saying something that’s radically different
from the party line. You cause problems, but– and
you might be ostracized within your party–
certainly by the leadership. On the flip side, Marland says
that raises questions though about the health
of our democracy. What we don’t know as citizens
is if a politician is indeed really forcefully advocating for our behalf
on our behalf and constituent interests
behind the scenes. Or if they are just simply being– the expression
is often trained seals. Politicians also deliver lines
because they want the public to actually absorb the message.From the first rule of
political
communication is to repeat
repeat and repeat.
When you start to get
bored with your answer,
that’s when you know
that your messageis finally punching through.No one really agrees
on a magic number. Some say you need to repeat
a line seven times, or twelve, or 20 times. It might be why you remember
this from the 2015 campaign. The only choice to keep us
moving forward is a strong stable national majority
Conservative government. So let’s make sure
on October 19th we get a strong
stable national majority Conservative government. Vassy:And this:This is a tougher economy
than it needs to be for the middle class than the middle class and those
working hard to join it. Strategists argue the problem is
really when politicians stick too closely to the script. You don’t want a politician to
repeat word for word the same line over and over
again because then the risk of running is that
you’re not authentic. Vassy:Sometimes when
politicians stick too closely
to a script it can almost sound
like they’re deflecting. Today on power and politics…Earlier this year I asked
Jagmeet Singh if he supports
the development of
the LNG project in B.C..
Instead he talked
about climate change
in a totally
different pipeline.
British Columbia’s got one of
the most ambitious climate change plans in North America. They’ve got an aggressive plan. My concern is that what we need
to do is– we all know this– future of energy in,
not just Canada, but in the world has to be a
future where we’re not burning, we’re not fracking, and we’re
not using fossil fuels. The energy has to be renewable. That’s the future of Canada. And my focus is on right now
we’ve got a project in front of us at
the federal level which is Trans Mountain pipeline. That project cannot go ahead. Vassy: That’s a great answer
for Trans Mountain, but I asked you
about B.C. and LNG. Do you support the project? B.C.’s got a great plan. Communications trainers
will teach politicians to try and circle back
to their talking points. They call it pivoting. Ideally though, they’ll still
sound unscripted. All election candidates
affiliated with a political party will probably have been
told look we don’t want you being robots. We want you to
put things in your own words. Otherwise if you get detected, this is going to turn
into a story in itself. On the other hand, speaking
spontaneously can also get you into trouble. Freelancing for
a political leader you know, can dog in four years
if it’s an important issue. Vassy:This is Stephen Harper’s
former campaign chairman
Tom Flanagan.It was 2002 and Harper
was the newly elected leader
of the Canadian Alliance Party.He was answering questions
when he went off script
and said this
about Atlantic Canada.
There is dependency in the
region that breeds a culture of defeatism. Vassy:Flanagan says Harper was
trying to say that
liberal policies were holding
Atlantic Canada back
from realizing
its full potential,
but Maritimers saw it as a
slight against them.
Well the consequence was that in
the election of 2004 when this issue was still very
much alive in Atlantic Canada, we did very poorly
in that region. We didn’t win nearly as
many as we hoped to win. Vassy:Ultimately, experts
say most politicians
wouldn’t be able to do their
jobs without talking points.
Because we live in a world where
everyone has a camera, it’s just too risky
to come unprepared. ♪ ♪
