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: CNN’s climate change town hall was an act of wanton cruelty


STAY TUNED, SHE IS UP IN JUST A MINUTE. THE FIRST NIGHT, AND IT WAS AN ACT REALLY OF WANT AND CRUELTY COMMITTED AGAINST DEFENSELESS TELEVISION VIEWERS. LAST NIGHT, SEEN AND SUBJECTED TO TINY AUDIENCE TO WHAT IT DESCRIBED AS A CLIMATE CHANGE TOWN HALL. THE THING WENT ON FOR SEVEN HOURS. THAT’S A LONG TIME. IN FACT, THAT SO LONG THAT CLIMATE PRODUCTIONS MADE THAT THE START OF THE EVENING COULD HAVE BEEN PROVEN WRONG BY THE END. AN ENTIRE SPECIES OF POLAR BEAR MIGHT HAVE BECOME EXTINCT BY THE THIRD COMMERCIAL BREAK. THAT’S A LONG TIME. AND YET IN THE NAME OF SCIENCE, HUGH HARDY SOULS CENTER TO WATCH THE ENTIRE THING. WE CAN’T SAY WITH CERTAINTY WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM BUT AT LEAST ONE OF THEM LAPSED INTO TOTAL UNCONSCIOUSNESS. WATCH THIS.>>ENOUGH OF HAVING THE OIL INDUSTRY AND FOSSIL FUEL INDUSTRY IT RIGHT ALL OF OUR LAWS IN THIS AREA. NO MORE.>>Tucker: HE WAS THE LUCKY ONE. IF HE WAS SLEEPING DEEPLY ENOUGH, HE MIGHT’VE MISSED CNN ASKING JULIAN CASTRO WHAT HIS ADMINISTRATION WOULD DO TO FIGHT QUOTE ENVIRONMENTAL RACISM. WE ARE NOT MAKING THAT OUT. BUT THAT’S JUST THE TIP OF THE RAPIDLY MELTING ICEBERG. LAST IT WAS REALLY AN EXERCISE IN SWEATY MORAL POSTURING. AT TIMES, THE EVENING BECAME SO STRIDENT THAT EVEN THE CANDIDATES ON STAGE CAN KEEP UP WITH IT ALL. CORY BOOKER FOR EXAMPLE, HE TRIED TO REASSURE VIEWERS THAT DEMOCRATS DON’T REALLY WANT TO TAKE PEOPLES MEET AWAY, APPARENTLY THEY HAD FORGOTTEN THAT KAMALA HARRIS HAD JUST CALLED FOR THAT.>>I HEAR ABOUT ALL THE TIME. BOOKER WANTS TO TAKE AWAY YOUR HAMBURGER. WELL, THAT IS THE KIND OF WHY AND FEARMONGERING THAT THEY SPREAD OUT THERE THAT SOMEHOW THE DEMOCRATS WANT TO GET RID OF HAMBURGER.>>Tucker: BUT WOULDN’T YOU SUPPORT CHANGING THE DIETARY GUIDELINES? REDUCE RED MEAT SPECIFICALLY?>>YES, I WOULD.>>Tucker: .>>Tucker: SO KAMALA HARRIS HAS BEEN TO GET ABOUT WHAT YOU EAT AND SHE THINKS YOU EAT TOO MUCH RED MEAT AND SHE CLAIMS TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT WHEN SHE IS ELECTED GOD. THAT AND A NUMBER OF OTHER THINGS. IN QUIET FACT THERE ARE QUITE A FEW THINGS IN AMERICA THAT KAMALA HARRIS CLAIMS TO BAN IMMEDIATELY.>>WOULD YOU COMMIT TO IMPLEMENTING A FEDERAL BAN ON TRACKING YOUR FIRST DAY IN OFFICE? ADDING THE UNITED STATES TO THE LIST OF COUNTRIES THAT BANS THIS DEVASTATING PRACTICE?>>THERE IS NO QUESTION.>>SO WOULD YOU BAN ON OFFSHORE DRILLING?>>YES. AND AGAIN I’VE WORKED ON.>>DO YOU BAN PLASTIC STRAWS QUESTION MARKS TO GO I THINK SHOULD, YEAH.>>Tucker: BANNING DRINKING STRAWS. MINDLESS AND ANNOYING. IF YOU ACTUALLY GET ABOUT PLASTIC POLLUTION AND YOU SHOULD CARE ABOUT PLASTIC POLLUTION, BECAUSE IT’S HORRIFYING, YOU WOULD PUNISH CHINA FOR JUMPING PLASTICS INTO THE OCEAN BUT OF COURSE NO ONE ON THE LEFT WANTS TO DO THAT BECAUSE THEY ARE BUSY IS SUCKING UP TO CHINA. LOOK BANNING FRACKING IS JUST DEMENTED. OUR ENERGY SECTOR IS THE SINGLE MOST SUCCESSFUL PART OF THE ENTIRE AMERICAN ECONOMY. IT’S ONE OF THE ONLY THING PROPPING UP OUR TRADE BALANCE RIGHT NOW. IT’S BEEN A SAVER OF LAST RESORT FOR RURAL AREAS DEVASTATED BY GLOBALIZATION. KAMAN HAS DIDN’T CARE ABOUT ANY OF THAT AND SHE REALLY DOESN’T EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMG EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEME EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMB EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMN EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMS EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMO EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMN EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMA EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMQ EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMI EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMG EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMA EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMT ALL COSTS, DETAILS ARE NOT RELEVANT. ALL YOU SEE IS YOURSELF AT THE FINISH LINE ARMS IN THE AIR. THIS IS A POWERFUL DRUG. ANAND IF WE ARE BEING HONEST ABOUT IT, HARRIS WAS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO THE LEAST APPEALING CANDIDATE ON THE STAGE LAST NIGHT. THAT AWARD GOES WITHOUT QUESTION TO FATHER PETE BUTTIGIEG, THE PATRON SAINT OF SOUTH BEND, INDIANA. FATHER BUT A JUDGE WASH INTO A SERMON LAST MAY THAT WOULD HAVE MADE JOHN ANNA’S JONATHAN EDWARDS PROUD.>>IF YOU BELIEVE THAT GOD IS WATCHING AS POISON IS BEING BELCHED INTO THE AIR OF CREATIO CREATION, AND PEOPLE ARE BEING HARMED BY, COUNTRIES ARE AT RISK OF VANISHING AND LOW-LYING AREA AREAS, WOODY’S EXPLICIT SUPPOSE GOD THINKS OF THAT? I BET HE THINKS IT’S MESSED UP. AT LEAST ONE WAY OF TALKING ABOUT THIS IS THAT IT’S A KIND OF SIN.>>Tucker: YOU STARTED TO THINK OF THE TORMENTS WAITING FOR YOU IN FATHER PETE’S EPISCOPALIAN VERSION OF HELL. IMAGINE HIM LECTURING YOU FOR ETERNITY WAGGING HIS LITTLE FINGERS IN YOUR FACE AND BRAGGING ABOUT HIS VIRTUE. THAT DOESN’T MAKE YOU WANT TO OBEY. FATHER PETE THOUGH THERE IS NO SUCH JUDGMENT BECAUSE AT THE VERY SAME TIME HE IS LECTURING YOU FATHER PETE HIMSELF IS LIKELY TO BE SIPPING PERRIER IN THE GULF STREAM. ACCORDING TO AN ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORT, HE FLIES ON CLIMATE DESTROYING PRIVATE JETS MORE THAN ANY OTHER DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE IN THE RACE RIGHT NOW. HOW CAN THAT BE? WE ASKED THE BUTTIGIEG CAMPAIGN THAT QUESTION TODAY AND HERE’S OUR RESPONSE.>>WE FLY COMMERCIAL AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE AND ONLY FLY NONCOMMERCIAL WHEN THE SCHEDULE DICTATES.>>Tucker: NONCOMMERCIAL. OH, THAT MAKES SENSE. SO WHEN IT’S CONVENIENT, FATHER BUT A JUDGE FOLLOWS HIS OWN COMMANDMENTS BUT THE REST OF THE TIME WHEN IT THE SCHEDULE DICTATES, HE IS HAPPY TO BELCH POISON INTO THE AIR OF CREATION. SO WHAT YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DRINK FROM A PLASTIC STRAW, THAT’S IMMORAL, BUT FATHER PETE GETS TO KEEP HIS PRIVATE PLANE. NO WONDER PEOPLE LOVE THE CLIMATE ACTIVISM. FOR THEM, IT’S ALL UPSIDE. IT’S NOT SO GREAT FOR EVERYONE ELSE UNFORTUNATELY BEARD FOR POOR PEOPLE IN THE THIRD WORLD, IT’S GOING TO BE ESPECIALLY TOUGH. THEY ARE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO HAVE AS MANY CHILDREN AS THEY WOULD LIKE. WATCH BERNIE SANDERS THIS MONEY PAID>>WENT ON AND EDUCATING EVERYONE ON THE NEED TO CURB POPULATION SEEMS A REASONABLE CAMPAIGN TO ENACT. WOULD YOU BE COURAGEOUS ENOUGH TO DISCUSS THIS ISSUE AND MAKE IT A KEY FEATURE OF A PLAN TO ADDRESS CLIMATE CATASTROPHES?>>THE ANSWER IS YES AND THE ANSWER HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT WOMEN IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA BY THE WAY I HAVE THE RIGHT TO CONTROL THEIR OWN BODIES AND THEY CAN MAKE PRODUCTIVE DECISIONS. AND THE MEXICO CITY AGREEMENT WHICH DENIES AMERICAN AID TO THOSE ORGANIZATIONS AROUND THE WORLD THAT ARE — THAT ALLOW WOMEN TO HAVE ABORTIONS OR EVEN GET INVOLVED IN BIRTH CONTROL TO ME IS TOTALLY ABSURD.>>Tucker: A GO. SANDERS SAYS IT RIGHT OUT LOUD. THE AFRICANS ARE HAVING TOO MANY BABIES. WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO MAKE SURE THOSE AFRICANS HAVE MORE ABORTIONS. WE ARE GOING TO PAY FOR AFRICAN ABORTIONS. ALSO BY THE WAY WE’RE GOING HAVE TO CONTROL WHAT PEOPLE EAT, HOW THEY TRAVEL, AND WHAT THEY DO FOR A LIVING, WE’RE GOING TO

Graham reveals Trump’s possible Bolton replacements


BRET.>>Bret: RICH EDSON AT THE STATE DEPARTMENT, THANK YOU. POLITICAL WASHINGTON OBVIOUSLY BUZZING TONIGHT ABOUT THE DEPARTURE OF JOHN BOLTON AS THE PRESIDENT’S NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR. JOINING US TONIGHT TO TELL US WHAT HE KNOWS, SENATE FOREIGN RELATIONS COMMITTEE MEMBER AND CHAIR OF THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, LINDSEY GRAHAM OF SOUTH CAROLINA, THANKS FOR BEING HERE.>>THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.>>Bret: SEE THIS COMING?>>A BIT. A PERSONALITY POLICY DIFFERENCE THAT LED TO A CHANGE. FROM MY POINT OF VIEW JOHN BOLTON SERVE THE COUNTRY WELL, HE GAVE THE PRESIDENT GOOD ADVICE, BUT THE ONE THING YOU’VE GOT TO LEARN BUT PRESIDENT TRUMP AS I’VE COME TO LEARN IS HE’S UNCONVENTIONAL. IT’S OKAY I THINK OR TALK WITH THE TALIBAN EVEN AT CAMP DAVID IF THERE’S A REASON TO BELIEVE THEY’RE GOING TO ACCEPT AND CHANGE THEIR BEHAVIOR, AND I THOUGHT WE JUST GOT AHEAD OF THE CART THERE, BUT JOHN IS GONE AND THERE ARE A LOT OF THE CHOICES AND APPRECIATE WHAT JOHN DID FOR THE COUNTRY.>>Bret: EVEN A COUPLE DAYS AHEAD OF 9/11 TO DO THAT AT CAMP DAVID?>>YEAH. I CAN UNDERSTAND THE TIMING, BUT THE MAIN THING IS — I TOLD THE PRESIDENT YOUR RIGHT TO WANT TO REDUCE OUR COMMITMENT. YOUR RIGHT TO WANT TO LOWER OUR COSTS. 18 YEARS LATER, WHAT HAVE WE FOUND? AL QAEDA IS STILL THERE, ISIS IS THERE. BUT THE AFGHAN ARMY IS 270,000. 18 YEARS AGO THEY DIDN’T HAVE AN ARMY. 6 MILLION WOMEN IN SCHOOL, A LOT OF POSITIVE THINGS. THERE’S A LOT OF BAD THINGS AND WE CAN’T DO IN AFGHANISTAN WHAT WE DID IN IRAQ, IGNORE SOUND MILITARY ADVICE AND PULL THE PLUG ON THE PLACE, BUT HAVING SAID THAT, I’D LIKE TO END THE WAR. THE ONLY WAY YOU EVER END THE WAR IS TO GET THE TWO SIDES TALKING SO IT’S OKAY TO TALK WITH THE TALIBAN. IT WOULD BE OKAY TO COME TO CAMP DAVID BUT WHAT I THOUGHT WAS A MISTAKE IS — WELL, THE BIG MISTAKE IF THE TALIBAN REALLY SCREWED UP WHEN IT CAME TO TRUMP. IF THIS AN INSULT OF THE PRESIDENT TO KILL THAT SOLDIER WHILE HE’S TRYING TO END THE WAR. I THINK THEY’RE GOING TO REGRET THIS. I THINK THE TALIBAN ARE REALLY GOING TO REGRET WHAT THEY DID.>>Bret: WHAT YOU SAY TWO ALLIES WILL LOOK AT THE TURMOIL INSIDE THE ADMINISTRATION? THERE HAVE BEEN 60 INDIVIDUALS IN THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION, EITHER RESIGNED OR BEEN FIRED, SOME OF THEM ON THE PAGE HERE. WHAT YOU SAY TO THOSE ALLIES — IT’S VOLATILE, UNCERTAIN. LOOKING NOW AT THE FORCE NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR IN THREE YEARS PLUS?>>HERE’S WHAT I WOULD SAY TO ALLIES, JUDGE US BY WHAT WE DO. WE REDUCED OUR PRESENCE IN SYRIA BUT WE STILL HAVE A COMMITMENT TO NORTHEASTERN SYRIA TO PROTECT THE KURDS AND MAKE SURE IRAN DOESN’T TAKE OVER. WE GOT OFF IN IRAN DEAL THAT I THOUGHT WAS A BAD DEAL AND THE PRESIDENT KEPT HIS WORD. HE’S TRYING TO REDUCE OUR COMMITMENT IN AFGHANISTAN THAT MAKES SENSE TO ME, WE ARE PAYING WAY TOO MUCH MONEY 18 YEARS LATER AND WE CAN REDUCE OUR FORCES AND BE SAFE HERE, BUT WE JUST CAN’T PULL OUT OF THE PLACE. I WOULD SAY TO OUR ALLIES, WHY DON’T YOU HELP HIM MORE?>>Bret: IT WAS IRAN A POLICY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE PRESIDENT OF JOHN BOLTON? MAYBE THE PRESIDENT WANTS TO MEET WITH THEIR PRESIDENT, MAYBE EVEN AT THE U.N. GENERAL ASSEMBLY?>>I THINK BOLTON LOOKED AT TRUMP THROUGH THE TRADITIONAL FOREIGN POLICY LENS. THE CONDITION WAS HIM, YOU DON’T TALK TO GUYS COMING TO ELEVATE KIM JONG UN. I DON’T CARE PRESIDENT TRUMP AND KIM JONG UN GO ON VACATION. IF THAT’S WHAT IT TAKES TO GIVE HIM UP — GIVE UP HIS NUCLEAR WEAPONS, I’M OKAY WITH PERSONAL DIPLOMACY THAT’S UNCONDITIONAL. I’M OKAY WITH TALKING TO THE IRANIANS AS LONG AS WE GET A BETTER DEAL. WHAT WOULD A BETTER DEAL BE? THEY CAN HAVE NUCLEAR POWER BUT THEY CAN’T ENRICH A PROCESS OF URANIUM, THAT WOULD BE A BETTER DEAL SO I’M NOT HERE TO MUCH OF THE PRESENT. YOU BEAT ME, 16 OF THE REPUBLICANS COMING TO BEAT HILLARY CLINTON. LET’S GIVE YOUR WAY TO TRY AND I’M GOING TO SUPPORT A MOLOKAN.>>Bret: LOOKING AT NORTH KOREA AS A BLUEPRINT, WHAT DO YOU SEE OUT OF THOSE NEGOTIATIONS AND THOSE TWO SUMMITS?>>I SEE BETTER. NO NEED FOR MUSCLE TESTING, NO BOMBS BEING EXPLODED. A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP — HOW WILL THAT WORK OUT? THOSE WHO CRITICIZE THE PRESENT, HOW WELL DID YOU DO ANY WRONG? HOW WELL DID YOU DO IN NORTH KOREA? I’M A PRETTY HAWKISH GUY BUT AFTER 18 YEARS, IT’S OKAY TO REEVALUATE OUR COMMITMENT IN AFGHANISTAN. IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE TO ME, BUT I’M JUST URGING THE PRESIDENT DON’T IGNORE SOUND MILITARY ADVICE. YOU CAN REDUCE OUR PRESENCE IN AFGHANISTAN BUT IF YOU LEAVE AFGHANISTAN, AL QAEDA AND ISIS ARE COMING AFTER US.>>Bret: SO DID HE FIRE HIM OR DID BOLTON RESIGN?>>I DON’T KNOW WHAT I DON’T THINK IT REALLY MATTERS. AT THE END OF THE DAY I LIKED JOHN BOLTON. HE SERVED HONORABLY AND AS PRESIDENT LOST TRUST AND FAITH IN JOHN BOLTON AND I THINK HE’S GOT SOME GOOD CHOICES.>>Bret: LET’S TALK ABOUT THAT. IF YOU TALKED ABOUT THAT TODAY. WHO’S ON THE PLATE?>>GENERAL KELLOGG IS THE NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR TO MIKE PENCE. THE VICE PRESIDENT, HE WORKED FOR GENERAL McMASTER.>>Bret: KEITH KELLOGG.>>KEEP KELLOGG. CONFIDENT, CAPABLE, CONFIDENT, HAS THE PRESIDENT’S TRUST. A DYNAMIC YOUNG MAN WORKING IN THE STATE DEPARTMENT, PART OF THE IRAN TEAM AND THE STATE DEPARTMENT CLOSE TO POMPEO. YOU’VE GOT REQUIRE DELL, WHO WORKED FOR McMASTER WHO KNOWS THE INS AND OUTS OF THE NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL AND THE WAY IT MEETS. THE ONE THING I THINK WAS A KNOCK ON JOHN BOLTON IS THE PROCESS KIND OF DIED ON HIS WATCH.>>Bret: THESE ARE THE THREE GUYS. KEEP KELLOGG, BRIAN, RECORD OUT.>>THOSE ARE THREE NAMES THE PRESIDENT MENTIONED TO ME. THERE ARE OTHERS ON THE LIST, BUT WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR? SOMEBODY THAT CAN WORK WITH POMPEO, WORK WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE TO GET THE INNER AGENCY BACK — STOOD BACK UP.>>Bret: ‘S DOESN’T REQUIRE SENATE CONFIRMATION VOTE. THIS IS JUST ABOUT TRUST WITH THE PRESIDENT, RIGHT?>>IT’S ABOUT UNDERSTANDING THE PRESIDENT TRYING TO ENACT HIS WILL BUT TELLING THE TRUTH. HERE’S THE TRUTH AND HERE IS HOW I GET ALONG WITH HIM. THIS PRESIDENT, YOU’RE RIGHT TO WANT TO REDUCE OUR COMMITMENT AFGHANISTAN, REDUCE THE COST AND MAYBE REDUCE THE TROOP LEVELS. BUT IT WOULD BE A BIG MISTAKE TO DO IN AFGHANISTAN WHAT OBAMA DID IN IRAQ. I’M LOOKING FOR A NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR WHO UNDERSTANDS THE PRESIDENT, CAN WORK WITH OTHERS, GIVE THE PRESIDENT GOOD ADVICE AND BEHIND CLOSED DOORS PUSH BACK WHEN HE NEEDS TO.>>Bret: I WANT TO ASK YOU TWO MORE QUESTIONS. ONE, THERE’S AN INVESTIGATION OUT OF COMMERCE SECRETARY WILBUR ROSS, IF HE PUT HIS FINGER ON THE SCALE AND NOAA SCIENTISTS IN THE FALL OF THE ALABAMA ORDEAL WE DEALT WITH LAST WEEK. WHAT’S YOUR THOUGHTS IN MY?>>NOT GOING TO GIVE A –>>Bret: THAT’S FOR THE RECORD?>>YEAH, THANK YOU. NEXT QUESTION. I COULD CARELESS, THIS WHOLE THING IS A BUNCH OF GARBAGE. IF THE PRESIDENT DID HAVE A MODEL WHERE IT COULD HAVE ALABAMA IF IT WENT THROUGH FLORIDA. THIS IS THE TRUMP WORLD. THE GUY CAN’T DO ANYTHING, THE GUY GETTING CRITICIZED BY A BUNCH OF PEOPLE WHO JUST HATE HIS GUTS AND I’M NOT PLAYING THAT GAME.>>Bret: THE STORY ABOUT THE RUSSIAN ASSET THAT WAS EXTRACTED.>>ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF WHAT I THINK IS COMPLETE B.S., TRYING TO BLAME THE PRESIDENT FOR SOMETHING THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN. NETWORKS OUT THERE SAYING THE PRESIDENT GOT A LOAN COSIGNED BY OLIGARCHS. WHEN IT COMES TO TRUMP, I’M VERY SUSPICIOUS — YOU SAY IT AND THEN YOU TRY TO VERIFY IT LATER. THE PRESIDENT IS A HANDFUL. HE MAKES HIS FAIR SHARE OF MISTAKES, BUT THE STORY ABOUT THE PRESIDENT DAMAGING OUR NATIONAL SECURITY I THINK IS UNVERIFIED AND UNTRUE.>>Bret: ARE YOU CONFIDENT THAT THE FUNDING OF THE GOVERNMENT IS GOING TO GO WITHOUT A BUMP?>>IT MAY BE A BUMP, BUT IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN BECAUSE FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION. BOTH PARTIES NEED TO CONVINCE THE PUBLIC WE ARE NOT COMPLETELY CRAZY. AND WE CAN DO OUR JOB.>>Bret: LAST THING, ANYTHING GET DONE BEFORE 2020 IN EARNEST?>>I THINK WE MAY HAVE SOME BREAKTHROUGHS ON SOLVING THE PLASTIC IN THE OCEANS PROBLEM. WE MAY HAVE SOME BREAKTHROUGHS ON INFRASTRUCTURE, A SMALLER BILL, FUNDING THE GOVERNMENT WOULD BE A GREAT STEP FORWARD, GIVING THE MILITARY WHAT THEY NEED. ON IMMIGRATION, YOU MIGHT HAVE A DEAL WITH THE DACA POPULATION IF THE COURT RULES THAT OBAMA’S

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 war against men


OWN GENDER, BUT FIRST, THE WAR AGAINST MEN. THAT IS THE FOCUS OF TONIGHT’S ANGLE. THE SERIOUS TOXICS — TOXIC — TOXIC MASCULINITY, BUT NOW THATM TOXIC MASCULINITY, BUT NOW THATN TOXIC MASCULINITY, BUT NOW THAT- TOXIC MASCULINITY, BUT NOW THATE TOXIC MASCULINITY, BUT NOW THATT TOXIC MASCULINITY, BUT NOW THATH TOXIC MASCULINITY, BUT NOW THATS INFECTED ALMOST EVERY AREA OF THE CULTURE, THE BUSINESSES, SCHOOLS, AND OUTCOME OF COURSE OUR POLITICS. WELL, DID DISMISSING THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF MEN THROUGHOUT THE HISTORY HAS BECOME OH, SO INSPIRING. OR AT LEAST COME ELIZABETH WARREN THINK SO.>>I WOULD HAVE WANTED GIVE THIS SPEECH RIGHT HERE, AND NOT BECAUSE OF THE ARCH BEHIND ME OR THE PROTESTANT THAT THIS SQUARE IS NAMED FOR, NO, WE ARE NOT SUR IS NAMED FOR, NO, WE ARE NOT SUE TODAY BECAUSE OF FAMOUS FORTUNES OR FAMOUS MEN. IN FACT, WE ARE NOT HERE FOR MAN AT ALL. WE ARE HERE BECAUSE OF SOME HARDWORKING WOMEN.>>Laura: WELCOME HER COMMENTS KIND OF TOSSING OFF INVOLVEMENT OF MEN IN SOCIETY, IT SPEAKS VOLUMES ABOUT THE DIRECTION THE DEMOCRATS WILL TAKE IF THEY GAIN CONTROL AGAIN. SO MEN WHO ARE HETEROSEXUAL STRONG, AGGRESSIVE COMPETITORS, ARE NO LONGER AN ACCEPTABLE PART OF SOCIETY, NOT REALLY. THEY ARE THE PROBLEM. AFTER ALL, THE PROFESSIONALS HAVE TOLD US SO. LAST YEAR, THE AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION RELEASED GUIDELINES FOR PRACTICE WITH BOYS AND MEN. THAT TRASH MASCULINITY AS LEADING TO AGGRESSION AND VIOLENCE AS AN ANSWER TO ALL INTERPERSONAL CONFLICT AS WELL AS SUBSTANCE ABUSE, INCARCERATION AND EARLY MORTALITY. WELL, OF COURSE FOR YEARS HOLLYWOOD HAS BEEN PUSHING THE CROP TOP PAJAMA BOY VERSION OF MASCULINITY ON US AND WE HAVE GOTTEN USED TO IT. NOW EVEN TIME MAIL BRANDS AND BUSINESSES ARE TRYING TO MAKE MAN FEEL GUILTY ABOUT BEING MEN.>>THE ME TOO MOVEMENT.>>MASCULINITY. IS THIS THE BEST A MAN CAN GET? ♪ ♪ IS IT? WE CAN’T HIDE FROM IT. IT’S BEEN GOING ON FOR TOO LONG. WE CAN’T LAUGH IT OFF.>>BOYS WILL BE BOYS.>>Laura: WELL, NOT ALL BOYS WILL BE BOYS BUT YOU ALMOST THINK SO AFTER WATCHING ADS LIKE THAT. IT USED TO BE ONLY THE FRINGE E OF THE GRANTEE FEMINISTS BELIEVE THE TRADITIONAL FAMILY STRUCTURES WERE INHERENTLY OPPRESSIVE AND DANGEROUS. OF COURSE WITH MAN HEAD OF THE HOUSEHOLD IN SOME CASES BEING THE MAIN CULPRITS. BUT NOW THE ENTIRE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS CAPTIVE TO THIS ANTIMALE OUTLOOK. IF YOU WERE A YOUNG MAN WHO GREW UP PREWOKE NOSE, IF YOU ARE A MEMBER OF ALL MALE CLUB OR FRATERNITY, OR IF YOU PLAYED A SPORT ESPECIALLY ONE LIKE I DON’T KNOW FOOTBALL OR LACROSSE, YOU ARE IMMEDIATELY SUSPECT. IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW WELL YOU LIVED YOUR PERSONAL LIFE OR HOW MUCH YOU ACHIEVED IN YOUR PROFESSIONAL LIFE. YOU ARE VERY EXISTENCE IS A THREAT TO THIS NEW ORDER. NOW, WE ALL JUST SAW WHAT THE LEFT IT AGAIN OR TRIED TO AND THE SUPREME COURT JUSTICE BRETT KAVANAUGH. BUT PEOPLE LIVING IN WASHINGTON KNOW WHAT THE CULTURE WAS LIKE AND AT LEAST THEN.>>THE MEMORIES, THEY WILL BE TESTIFYING TO HER MEMORIES RECORDED IN THE BRAINS OF DRUNK TEENAGE BOYS.>>HE WAS DRUNK ALLEGEDLY IN ONE OF THESE INCIDENTS. THE FRONT — YES, THERE MAY BE QUESTIONS OF CANDOR.>>I THINK FRAT BOY IS ON TRIAL HERE.>>Laura: BUT DEFAMING KAVANAUGH, OF COURSE AS A PREDATOR, THAT WAS ANOTHER WAY OF CLAIMING TRUMP WAS ONE. WHICH DEMOCRATS WILL THINK WILL HELP THEM WITH WOMEN VOTERS. THEY SAY THEY CAN RIDE THE MEAD TO WAVE RIGHT INTO THE WHITE HOUSE. BUT THEY HAVE TO THINK WOMEN ARE VERY, VERY STUPID AND IF YOU ARE A MALE DEMOCRAT POLITICIAN, YOU ARE FORCED TO REPEAT — REFER TO THE GENDER FOR YEARS AND APOLOGIZE YOUR SEX.>>I THINK WE WOULD LOOK FOR SOMEBODY WHO IS MAYBE NOT OF THE SAME GENDER THAT I AM. AND MAYBE SOMEBODY MIGHT BE A COUPLE OF YEARS YOUNGER THAN ME.>>I WILL HAVE A WOMAN RUNNING MATE. IT IS CLEAR FOR ME TO DO THAT. IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT NOT TO SELECT A WOMAN WITH SO MANY EXTRAORDINARY WOMEN RUNNING RIGHT NOW.>>Laura: OKAY. WOW, MAYBE A WOMAN WOULD BE THE BEST PERSON TO PICK OUT OF BASIS OF MERIT, BUT WHEN DOES ORGANS ALONE BE A QUALIFICATION FOR HIGH OFFICE, STUNNING. WHICH LED ME TO WONDER, CAN PRINCESS FITTING BOWL OR KAMALA HARRIS PICK A MALE RUNNING MATE? OR WILL THAT MAKE THEM PART OF THE PATRIOT — PATRIARCH AS WELL. AUNT MSNBC JOY REID TOOK THE ANTIMALE NARRATIVE A STEP FURTHER ADDING RACIAL AND RELIGIOUS ELEMENTS TO IT. I MEAN YOU HAVE A VERY DETERMINED MINORITY AND IN THIS CASE WEALTHY, WHITE MAN WEALTHY WHITE CHRISTIAN MEN AND CHRISTIAN AMERICANS WHO ARE OF THE FUNDAMENTAL VARIETY WHO ARE VERY CLEAR THAT NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS IF THEY HAVE TO PULL THE SOUTH AFRICA MODEL TO MAINTAIN MODEL FOREVER, THEY WILL DO IT. THEY ARE NOT AFRAID OF IT AND EXCUSE ME, OPEN ABOUT IT. DONALD TRUMP IS THE AVATAR FOR THIS.>>Laura: THEY ARE INCREASINGLY OPEN ABOUT IT. I MUST HAVE MISSED ALL OF THAT, AND BY THE WAY, I HAVE TO SAY THIS “WHEN THEY DISMISS OUR FOUNDERS, THIS IS WHERE THEY ARE GOING. THE ENTIRE AMERICAN EXPERIMENT, THEY BELIEVE WAS SINFUL AND AWFUL BECAUSE IT WAS STARTED BY CONQUEST. WHITE MEN WITH THEIR TRADITIONAL NOTIONS OF WORK AND MORALITY, SUBJUGATED WOMEN AND OTHER MINORITIES, END OF STORY, NOTHING REALLY GOOD CAME AFTER THAT. THAT’S THE THINKING GOES, IT IS THE DUTY OF ALL SECULAR LEFT IS TO MARGINALIZE AND HOBBLE MEN WHO OBSTRUCT THEIR VISION OF REVOLUTIONARY CHANGE, POLITICAL AND OTHERWISE. NOW THINK OF WHERE THAT LEAVES US AS A SOCIETY. THE ENTIRE MIND-SET IN THE COUNTRY. THERE ARE MEN EITHER NEUTERED OR PERPETUALLY IN A DEFENSIVE POSTURE DISMISSIVE OR ANGRY. AND ALIENATED. NOW, THAT IS TOXIC.

If Obama Cuts Social Security, It Will Destroy the Democratic Party


he this socially redeeming you mentioned that we need to tell the
obama administration that this is where the progress of base
get off the bus i would actually argue that’d larger than the progress of days loyal and polish on this at this point
we don’t give a permit this future this boy that every independent msnbc
was n_b_c_ wall street journal c_n_n_ what pulled the worst across the board is total security democrats independents republicans the
party is reporting those buddy wants it so what the republicans will do it once this cut the socially really
happens they will say brocco bomb head of the democratic party was the one responsible for code for
cutting your social security it will destroy the the democratic party i think there will be nothing left of
the democratic party it will be you know it will be uh… it will be associated with cutting social security in their work freaky world let let’s talk about how we send this
message is it you know how much hyde park should
there be about the primary ng brocco bomb at this point i’d personally would not do it better mo i would argue with the any primary
challenge hop almost always been debilitating for that party i can’t even
time whether as a primary challenge where that guy one add everything was on
the dory after that well you know that’s not too bad that
you know what i’m talking about because we’re talking about uh… what’s more debilitating to the
party the loss of uh… of the presidency in
twenty twelve stderr the democrats being responsible
for cutting social security evelyn be politically disastrous for the
presence of resource that really cuts agree with that but my don’t we have today get into the
primary challenge discussion now mean there’s a there’s a game of flight to
send that message of the president uh… you know why do this you don’t need to do this the polling is
on your side the policy is not your side artist politically nine your side it’s a
disaster aid with the sunday and the latter we send them eschew now cuz
you know you’d unit everyone gets into a bubble in the end of the presidency it’s
it’s it’s it’s hard to break out at some times hot this happen with clinton new clinton was
talking about taking all chunk of the so street respiratory into into wall street that was a hot topic in the late
nineties but there was a big theory on the left at the time and they pull back from that and then
they did in the mantra became save so security cecil security first uh… and that was good for the
democratic party so there is evidence that the weekend it s
i don’t look at first i think that they don’t get the curve by the white house and a leader in the west of the system
restore seven risers but we do have the capability when we speak in unison and speak well
includes have an impact in that now is the absolute time to do that all right well i understand bill and fitted militant it is a fairly toxic
thing to be talking about uh… no primary in a you candidate because it has historically meant the loss of that candidate and but dont i really do think and i you know you know that i defer to
you on uh… on that urs political but this may be one of those times where
i am by deference is has an estate i reserve the right to change my
deference here that i think that there is an argument to be made that the cutting a social security by democratic
president essentially will make the democratic party impossible impossible to uh… man to regain any footing such that it may be best to become a minority party for a while that actually has values in
some foundation from which to build upon then a a party that is destined to lose the
majority status anyways in twenty twelve perhaps of because they cut so she cared
