Unhinged Celebrities Losing It! Want Trump Assaulted, Rename Republican Party To ‘The Rape Party’


Multiple Hollywood personalities have gotten
involved with politics and it’s becoming extremely unhinged. Actress Molly Ringwald has taken it upon herself
to rename the Republican Party to ‘The Rape Party” and she’s facing quite a bit of
criticism from citizens accusing her of calling them “rapists” simply for their political
affiliation. Ringwald, 50, best known for Sixteen Candles
and The Breakfast Club, has become outspoken amid the controversial events engulfing the
confirmation of Supreme Court Brett Kavanaugh and the pushback orchestrated by Senate Democrats. Ringwald was quite clear with her message
and disdain for Republican Party and Republicans in general who support Brett Kavanaugh as
he fights accusations from Christine Blasey Ford who says that he sexually assaulted her
in the early 1980’s while they were in high school. Ford has yet to produce a corroborating witness
and the people she named thus far have spoken against her story. Ringwald took her voice to Twitter, lashing
out at Republicans. “It’s no longer the Republican Party to
me. It’s the Rape Party.” Another Hollywood actress lashed out at Republicans
as well. Sarah Silverman attacked President Trump,
hoping that he would one day know what it feels like to be held down and violated. She stated this in response to Trump criticizing
the protesters confronting senators in/at the elevators as they attempt to move to a
different floor. “I hope you someday understand what it is
to be held down against your will and violated. Your compassion is startless” “The very rude elevator screamers are paid
professionals only looking to make Senators look bad. Don’t fall for it! Also, look at all of the professionally made
identical signs. Paid for by Soros and others. These are not signs made in the basement from
love! #Troublemakers” Kathy Griffin also chimed in, ranting off
a string of expletives towards Senators voting in favor of Kavanaugh. She dedicated a special message to Sen. Jeff
Flake (R-AZ) who was fine with Democrats requesting the FBI investigation into Kavanaugh’s accusations,
but then seems to believe that the FBI report to be sufficient enough and he voted YES to
push Kavanaugh to the next stage of the confirmation. Griffin seems very angry over this. Griffin was unable to hold a job with CNN
and Squatty Potty after she was seen in a picture holding a fake decapitated head of
President Donald Trump. More celebrities were involved in the anti-Kavanaugh/Trump
antics. Amy Schumer and Emily Ratajkowski were arrested
during protests held at Capitol Hill. However, a contradicting report on their arrest
came out that suggested otherwise. Their arrest seems more like a “let’s
pretend to get arrested for social media likes” act. Getting a $50 ticket is much different than
getting arrested. However, the two celebrities were able to
get their social media pictures that made it seem like they were being arrested and
resisting with protesters. This seems more like a publicity stunt than
someone who actually cares about politics. Schumer has starred in multiple movies, most
known for the movie Trainwreck. Emily Ratajkowski became stunningly famous
when she starred in the ‘Blurred Lines’ music video, which turned out to be one of
the worst songs ever created (my opinion). Ratajkowski’s popularity grew as she posted
sultry photos on Instagram. Hollywood is becoming unhinged and too involved
in politics.

Tucker Carlson slams Stacey Abrams for her ‘identity politics’


-Fox News host Tucker Carlson
took aim at Stacey Abrams for her defense of one of
the most controversial ideas in America —
identity politics. She often argues that embracing
identity politics and empowering
marginalized groups is how the nation can grow. Carlson, however,
doesn’t see it that way. The marginalized, she writes,
include “women, Native Americans,
African-Americans, immigrants, and the LGBTQ community.” The dominant are everyone
who’s left. So do the subtraction. That’s only one group. You know exactly who they are,
and so does Stacey Abrams. She says these people,
these unnamed people, are responsible for
the suffering of everyone else, and we need to overthrow them. -His comments come amid
a wave of criticism from President Trump
and the GOP against the rising
Democratic star. Trump said it would be
a mistake for Abrams to run in the 2020
Georgia Senate race on the same day she delivered
the Democratic response to his State
of the Union address. Democratic leaders, in contrast, applauded her response
and urged her to run. -I think Stacey is a rising star
inside of the party. I think she showed
what’s possible in Georgia. We’re looking at
a new swing state. And I think she reflects
the diversity of the country, reflects the diversity
of the party. -Even former Vice President
Joe Biden praised Abrams, adding that she achieved
in her brief speech what Trump failed to do in
over an hour.

The Politics of Branding, Meeting Obama & Trump’s First Year: The Daily Show


– This is a little something we decided to put together
to wrap up the year. The year is not over but uh, we’re all gonna die
so we figured why not just do this? It was a crazy year, 2017. Sexual harassment. Russians. Russians sexually
harassing the election something like that. (laughing) Now the Republicans
they gotta work hard. They gotta get rid
of Obamacare, right? Because they named it Obamacare. (laughing) That’s probably the most fun
thing about American politics for me is that half
of it is branding. That’s all it is. (laughing) The Republicans can’t
fix Obamacare because they named it Obamacare because if they fix it
then Obamacare works and they can’t
have Obamacare work but it’s not really Obamacare it’s the Affordable Care Act but they named it Obamacare ’cause they knew
when they said it their voters would
hear black medicine and they wouldn’t want that. (laughing) What they didn’t realize
is that black medicine can fix white
cancer and so now… (laughing) They’re in a sticky situation. (clapping) And all it is is branding. Obamacare is a genius,
genius name to give it because it doesn’t sound like
a national healthcare plan. Obamacare sounds like
you’re gonna hurt your knee and Barack’s gonna walk in
the room and kiss it better. That’s all it sounds like. Like you gonna be like, “Oh I think it’s broken.” He’s gonna come in like
“All right. Bring it in, uh bring it in.
Come on. Come on. Bring it in. (kissing noise) There you go. All right go on. Get outta here. Go on now.” That’s what it sounds like. Obamacare. It’s all branding. That’s really all it is. Political branding
and say what you want about the Republicans. They are brilliant at
political branding. Democrats. Nice people. Have no clue how to brand. (laughing) None whatsoever. Like they just throw
things against the wall. See what sticks. Resist. (laughing) What are we resisting? Everything. (laughing) Republicans know, you know? Every single issue they brand connects with you emotionally. You know, like gun control. Huh? They gonna
control your guns. I don’t even have a
gun and I’m like no. (laughing) Every issue. Pro-life or pro-choice.
That’s another one. That’s a powerful one. I remember the first time
someone asked me that. They were like Trevor are
you pro-life or pro-choice? I was like uh, both? (laughing) ‘Cause like that’s
a trick question. How do you say
you’re not pro-life? You’re an asshole.
That’s what you are. Are you pro-life? No I’m
not. No. I don’t like life. No, no life for me. I’ll have life on
the side thank you. No life. No. It’s a trick question. You’re an asshole. ‘Cause I am. I’m both. I believe that human beings
have the right to exist and I also believe that women
have the right to decide what happens on the
inside of their bodies. That’s what I believe. (cheering) All right? But it’s a slick move. It’s political branding. Yeah. Pro-life. You answered in the negative. You look like an asshole.
That’s what it is. It’s simple brand. Look I’ll give an example now. We can do it in this room. All the men in this
room raise your hand. If you identify as a
man, get your hand up. All the way up. All the way up. Hold it up there. Now only drop your hand if
you have stopped masturbating. (laughing) You see? You’re
like, uh, oh wait. Uhhhh. Uh I don’t want my wife
to think I’m a quitter. Uhhhh. That’s all it is. And ladies, the hand they
had up that’s the hand so, (laughing) branding is what got Republicans
in the sticky situation. That’s all it is. That’s how they got here. Yeah. But Obama did his thing, man. Barack Obama did his thing. He was smarter than people
gave him credit for. We got to interview the
President on the Daily Show which was really exciting. And obviously this was the
last year that America had its first and last
black president. You know? I remember when we got
a call, I got a call at the Daily Show
and they were like “Trevor would you
like to interview the President of the United States?” And I was like uh, do
you ask stupid questions? It’s like of course I want
to interview the President and we got to go
to the White House to interview Barack Obama. You know and we set everything
up in this special room. It’s literally opposite
the Oval Office. And we sit there and everything,
everything is steeped in history. Every piece is owned
by a former President and we’re all sitting there
waiting for the President to walk in and they don’t
give us an exact time, right? For his safety. They just gave us a window. Sorta like a cable guy. (laughing) We’re all watching the door
waiting for Barack to walk in and then he popped in behind us, scared the (bleep)
out of everybody. He was like uh hello. And we were like (screaming) ‘Cause there was another door. No one told us. Again. He just pops in and
he was really nice. He greeted everyone. He was like “Hello.
Everybody good? You guys good? How you doin’? Everybody good?
Camera guy? Sound guy? How you doin’? How you doin’?” And he turned, he looked at me he’s like “Uh Trevor, you good?” And I was like he knows my name. (laughing) I wanted to melt. Oh man. You should have seem it. He like floated over. (laughing) Yeah ’cause he didn’t walk. I don’t know. You don’t walk. You move
differently when you’ve got nuclear weapons. You know, you’ve
just got this thing. And he came over
and he sat down. He looked over at
me, he was like “Uh Trevor. You good?” I said I don’t know if
I’m good Mr. President. I’m a little bit
nervous right now. And he was like, “Uh come on. Why
are you nervous? Why are you nervous?” I said well ’cause I
don’t wanna mess up and bring a brother
down with me, you know? (laughing) He was like “Uh I don’t
mean know this Trevor, you can’t bring me down. I’m on my way out.’ (laughing) And he said it so cool as well. He was just like
“I’m on my way out.” And he was. He was
on his way out. Yeah. Next time we saw him was
the last time anyone saw him as President when he was
giving that final speech in Chicago. Gave that powerful speech. Stood up there at the lectern. Felt like his inauguration
all over again. He was like, “As Americans we gotta remember. That not every issue
was red or blue. That at times we
still gotta fight. We gotta fight for freedom. We gotta fight for liberty. We gotta fight for
the American dream. We gotta fight.” And the next time we saw
him we was kite surfing with Richard Branson. (laughing) I thought you said
we gonna fight? “I’m fighting these waves. You do you.”

Sanders slams CNN for Russia report, calls Dem debate ‘terrifying’


BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR IT. JESSE: HERE WITH SOME REACTION, SOMEONE WHO KNOWS A THING OR TWO ABOUT SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT. THE NEWEST FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR. SARAH SANDERS. WELCOME TO THE FOX NEWS TEAM. NOW, YOU CAN’T CANCEL AT THE LAST MINUTE BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT DEALING WITH LATE-BREAKING DRAMA ON A FRIDAY AT THE WHITE HOUSE.>>THE ONE TIME THAT HAPPENED I DID FIND A GOD REPLACEMENT. HE MAY HAVE BEEN FAR BETTER A GUEST THAT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN THAN MY DAD. JESSE: OUR FATHER IS A GOOD GUEST, BUT NOT AS GOD AS YOU. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS. TWO BIG FAKE NEWS STORY. THEY ARE NEVER CORRECTED OR UPDATED. IS THIS GOING TO GO ON AND ON WITHOUT CONSEQUENCE? NOW YOU ARE AT FOX, YOU CAN BE THE OMBUDSMAN AND EXACT CHECKER AND WE CAN LET THEM KNOW.>>I WISH I COULD SAY THESE MOMENTS ARE SURPRISING. WHILE THEY ARE SAD AND UNFORTUNATE. ER IN NOT SURPRISING AT ALL. THIS IS SOMETHING WE HAVE SEEN DAY IN AND DAY OUT. THERE IS SUCH A RUSH TO FIND THINGS TO ATTACK THIS PRESIDENT FOR TO BLAME THIS PRESIDENT FOR THAT THEY DON’T CARE IF IT’S RIGHT OR NOT IF THEY CAN GET ONE PERSON TO SAY IT HAPPENED, THEY RUN WITH IT. YOU HAVE SHOWN THAT THROUGH ALL OF THESE INSTANCES. THING WITH CNN RUNNING OUT AND PUSHING THIS NARRATIVE THAT THE PRESIDENT PUT OPERATIVES IN DANGER. IT’S JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE MEDIA TRYING TO BLAME PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR THE MISTAKES AND FAILURES OF THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION. WE HAVE SEEN IT TIME AND TIME AGAIN. AND I DON’T THINK THEY ARE GOING THE STOP. I WISH I COULD SAY AT SOME POINT THEY WILL LEARN THEIR LESSON. I THINK THE ON THING THAT MAY TEACH THEM THAT THIS ISN’T GOING TO WORK IS WHEN THEY HAVE TO WATCH DONALD TRUMP GET RE-ELECTED AGAIN AND WHEN AGAIN IN NOVEMBER OF 2020, AND THEY HAVE ANOTHER ROOM FULL OF CRYING INDIVIDUALS THIS COME NOVEMBER. AND I DON’T KNOW IF THAT WILL HELP CHANGE. BUT MAYBE THAT WILL BE THE CATALYST THEY NEED TO START FACT CHECKING SOME OF THE STUFF BEFORE THEY RUN OUT JUST TO HURT THE PRESIDENT. JESSE: THIS ISN’T THE FIRST TIME CNN HAS DONE THIS. YOU SAD THE SCARAMUCCI FIRE WHICH WAS FAKE. YOU HAD THE COMEY TESTIMONY STORY, THE COHEN TESTIMONY STORY, BOTH WERE FAKE. DON, JR. HAD ADVANCE INFORMATION ABOUT THE WIKILEAKS THAT WAS FAKE. DO YOU THINK THE SOURCES ARE JUST FEEDING THEM FAKE NEWS OR WHAT?>>MY GUESS IS THERE IS A MIX. SOMETIMES THEY THINK THEY HAVE SOMETHING SO THEY RUN WITH IT. OTHER TIMES THEY ARE GETTING FED THE INFORMATION AND THEY ARE NOT DOING THE DUE DILIGENCE. SOME OF THESE THINGS WITH A BASIC GOOGLE SEARCH YOU CAN FIND QUICKLY ARE JUST NOT TRUE. THEY ARE NOT PUTTING THE TIME IN BECAUSE THEY ARE SO EAGER AND EXCITED TO TEAR THIS PRESIDENT DOWN. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A TIME WHEN WE ARE SO HAPPY TO SEE THE PRESIDENT OF OUR OWN COUNTRY. YET THIS MEDIA IS SALIVATING OVER THOSE MOMENTS. I THINK IT’S SAD, IT’S UNFORTUNATE, AND HOPEFULLY THEY WILL START TO LEARN SOMETHING BECAUSE THEY ARE HAVING TO RETRACT SO MANY OF THESE STATEMENTS, BUT I DON’T THINK IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN. THE ONLY WAY THAT DOES IS WHEN THEY WATCH DONALD TRUMP TAKE THE OATH OF OFFICE. JESSE: ONE OF THE OTHER WAYS THE LEFT IS TRYING TO TAKE OUT THE PRESIDENT IS WITH IMPEACHMENT. JERRY NADLER IS THE RINGLEADER OF THAT CIRCUS. WE HAVE SOUND OF HIM IN THE 90s SINGING A DIFFERENT TUNE ABOUT IMPEACHMENT. LISTEN TO THIS.>>IF OUR CON IN THIS MATTER DOES NOT EARN THE CONFIDENCE OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, THEN ANY ACTION WE TAKE, ESPECIALLY IF WE SEEK TO OVERTURN THE RESULT OF A FREE ELECTION COULD DIVIDE A NATION FOR YEARS TO COME. JESSE: NADLER IN THE 90s IS SAYING IF IT’S A PARTISAN EXERCISE AND WILL DIVIDE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IT WE SHOULDN’T DO IT.>>THE DEMOCRAT PARTY HAS BECOME THE PARTY OF CONVENIENCE. THEY ARE CONSTANTLY CHANGING THEIR POSITIONS TO FIT A CONTRAST TO ATTACK THE PRESIDENT. WE SEE IT ON IMMIGRATION AND THE IMPEACHMENT PROCESS IT’S ABSURD. YOU CAN’T JUST START TO IMPEACH SOMEBODY BECAUSE YOU ARE AFRAID YOU ARE GOING TO BE BEAT IN AN ELECTION. YOU CAN’T START USING THIS AS A TOOL TO TAKE AWAY THE VOTE OF MILLIONS OF AMERICANS WHICH IS WHAT DEMOCRATS ARE TRYING TO DO THROUGH THIS PROCESS. I DON’T THINK THEY WILL GET AWAY WITH IT, AND I THINK IT WILL LOOK FOOLISH. THE COUNTRY IS FAR TOO SMART TO FALL FOR WHAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE TRYING TO PULL. THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF WHERE THE DEMOCRATS WILL TRY TO DO SOMETHING AND FAIL. THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING IN CONGRESS. IT WILL GO NOWHERE JUST LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE THEY TRIED TO DO. JESSE: YOU MENTIONED THEY ARE DOING THIS BECAUSE THEY THINK THEY CAN’T BEAT THEM. THE PARTY IS GOING SO FAR LEFT, IN FACT EVEN BILL MAHER IS PANICKING ABOUT THE DIRECTION OF THE PARTY. HERE IS BILL ON MSNBC SAYING THIS IS A CANCER. WATCH.>>HOW MADDENING IS THAT TO YOU THAT THEY ARE HAVING THIS RACE TO THE FAR LEFT?>>IT’S NOT GOOD IT’S KIND OF A CANCER ON PROGRESSIVISM. YOU HAVE TO STAND UP TO TWITTER. TWITTER ISN’T US. TWITTER ISN’T THE RANK AND FILE DEMOCRAT. IT’S NOT EVEN MOST OF LIBERALS. BUT THEY DON’T DO IT. THIS RACE IS BEGGING FOR SOMEONE TO DO A SISTER SOLE TO DO A SISTER SOME TO DO A SISTER SOLE TO DO A SISTER SOLJA MOMENT. WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT TAXING TOO MUCH AND TAKING EYE AWAY THEIR GUNS AND TRANSWOMEN GET ABORTION RIGHTS, I THINK THAT CAME UP IN THE FIRST DEBATE. I DON’T THINK YOU ARE GOING TO WIN HIS ELECTION. JESSE: I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M SAYING THAT. I THINK BILL MAHER IS RIGHT.>>I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD SAY I AGREE WITH BILL MAHER. IT’S TRUE. I WAS WATCHING THE DEBATES AND I COULDN’T BELIEVE THE THINGS COMING OUT OF THE DEMOCRATS’ MOUTHS. I THOUGHT SURELY THIS IS A “SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE” SKIT. THEY ARE FIGHTING EACH OTHER TO SEE WHO CAN GET FURTHEST TO THE LEFT IT’S TERRIFYING, SOME OF THE IDEA THEY ARE COMING UP WITH. WE HEARD TIME AND TIME AGAIN WE HEARD DEMOCRATS SAY THAT REASON WE HAVE GUNS IN THIS COUNTRY IS BECAUSE OF CORRUPTION. IT’S ENSHRINED IN THE CONSTITUTION. THE IDEA THEY WANT TO CHALLENGE EVERY BIT OF THAT. THEY WERE FIGHTING OVER HOW TO GO AROUND THE CONSTITUTION AT ONE POINT AND WHETHER THEY COULD JUST DO EXECUTIVE ORDERS AND SAY WHO CARES ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION. IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE TO LISTEN TO SOME OF THE THINGS COMING OUT OF THEIR PLOWTS. — MOUTHS. HOPEFULLY THEY WILL TAKE ADVICE AND LISTEN TO BILL MAHER. IF NOT, IT WILL EVEN SURE PRESIDENT TRUMP IS ELECTED FOR FOUR MORE YEARS IN NOVEMBER.

Trump hails ‘big victory’ in Supreme Court asylum order


GOOD MORNING AT HOME AND TO YOU. THE HIGH COURT REVERSING DECADES OF U.S. POLICY ALLOWING THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TO DENY ASYLUM TO MIGRANTS WHO PASS THROUGH ANOTHER COUNTRY FIRST ON THEIR WAY TO THE U.S. BORDER WITHOUT FIRST SEEKING PROTECTION IN THAT PREVIOUS COUNTRY. KELLYANNE CONWAY, COUNSEL TO THE PRESIDENT WITH US ON “AMERICA’S NEWSROOM” TWO HOURS AGO SAID THIS.>>HUGE VICTORY, THE SECOND VICTORY THIS SUMMER HANDED BY THE SUPREME COURT FOR THE PRESIDENT’S VISION ON BORDER SECURITY.

GOOD MORNING.>>BILL, GOOD MORNING TO YOU. BIG VIEK — VICTORY FOR THE WHITE HOUSE LAST NIGHT. THAT WAS OVERTURNED BY THE NINTH SIR COURT OF APPEALS. THE LAST NIGHT THE SUPREME COURT GAVE THE WHITE HOUSE THE BIG VICTORY TO GO FORWARD IN ALL 50 STATES AT LEAST TEMPORARY. THE PRESIDENT SAID REALLY BIG COURT WINS ON THE BORDER LATELY. FOR THE MOMENT THE U.S. GOVERNMENT CAN DENY ASYLUM CLAIMS FROM MANY PEOPLE WHO TRAVEL THROUGH A THIRD COUNTRY BEFORE REACHING THE UNITED STATES BORDER. IT WILL AFFECT CENTRAL AMERICAN MIGRANTS WHO TRAVEL THROUGH MEXICO. IT WILL FORCE CENTRAL AMERICANS TO APPLY FOR ASYLUM IN THEIR HOME COUNTRIES AND A SAFE THIRD AGREEMENT WITH MEXICO WHICH WOULD ALLOW MIGRANTS TO APPLY FOR ASYLUM IN MEXICO.

TWO DISSENTING JUSTICES GINSBERG AND SOTOMAYOR, EVEN THOUGH OTHERS SIDED WITH THE MAJORITY, DEMOCRATS NOT HAPPY AT ALL WITH WHAT THE JUSTICES DECIDED.>>PEOPLE COVERED BY THIS RULE BARRED FROM SEEKING ASYLUM HERE ARE SIMILARLY SEEKING TO ESCAPE PERSECUTION, VIOLENCE, CONDONED BY THE GOVERNMENTS IN THEIR COUNTRIES, DRUG TRAFFICKING AND THREATS AND THIS KIND OF RULE CONTRAVENES THE SPIRIT, IF NOT THE LETTER OF THIS LAW. AND THE INTENT OF CONGRESS.>>AS THE WHITE HOUSE CELEBRATES VICTORY AT THE SUPREME COURT THE PRESIDENT LOOKS FOR A NEW NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR. MIKE POMPEO HAVING LUNCH WITH THE PRESIDENT TODAY TO DISCUSS IT. SOME TALK ABOUT HE COULD TAKE THE JOB AS KISSINGER DID. MULTIPLE SOURCES ARE WAVING ME OFF THAT POSSIBILITY FOR A NUMBER OF REASONS. POMPEO MAY EXIT TO RUN FOR SENATE NEXT YEAR. YOU WOULD LOSE NOT JUST YOUR SECRETARY OF STATE BUT NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR BUT CONCERN GIVING POMPEO BOTH JOBS WOULD CONCENTRATE A LOT OF POWER UNDER HIM. NON-POMPEO CHOICES THE TOP CONTENDERS ARE STEVEN BEGAN, THOUGH HE MAY BE TAKING A DIFFERENT JOB. RICK LIDEL, THE FORMER NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR. ROBERT O’BRIEN AND BRIAN HOOK. WE ARE TOLD THE WHITE HOUSE IS LOOKING FOR A LOW-KEY NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR UNLIKE BOLTON. SOMEBODY MORE IN THE MOLD OF STEVEN HADLEY DURING THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION, WILL THE NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR BE MORE OF A LIAISON BETWEEN THE COUNSEL AND THE PRESIDENT?

ONE OF THE HALLMARKS OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND THE CONSERVATIVE MOVEMENT HAS ALWAYS BEEN HOW MUCH DO WE SPEND. THE ULTIMATE MEASURE OF GOVERNMENT IS HOW MUCH IT SPEND SPENDS. I THINK AS A PARTY WE’VE LOST OUR WAY. THE PRESIDENT HAS CALLED HIMSELF THE KING OF DEBT. A FAMILIARITY AND COMFORTABLE WITH DEBT THAT I THINK IS ULTIMATELY LEADING US IN THE WRONG DIRECTION.

REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS AND AS AMERICANS AND THE THING THAT HAS BEEN LACKING IN THIS DEBATE HAS BEEN AN EARNEST AND REAL CONVERSATION ON DEBT AND DEFICIT AND GOVERNMENT SPENDING AND I FIND IT ASTOUNDING TO WATCH THE NUMBER OF DEMOCRATIC DEBATES THAT I’VE SEEN AND NO MENTION, NO CONVERSATION ON WHERE WE ARE GOING WITH REGARD TO DEBT AND ITS IMPLICATIONS FOR EVERYONE OF US.>>Chris: YOUR TALK ABOUT THE FACT THAT DONALD TRUMP WAS A LONG SHOT FOUR YEARS AGO. FIRST OF ALL HE WASN’T RUNNING AGAINST AN INCUMBENT PRESIDENT OF HIS OWN PARTY. SECONDLY, LET’S LOOK AT SOME OF THE OBSTACLES THAT YOU FACED BECAUSE THERE ARE SIGNS — 85% APPROVE OF THE JOB THE PRESIDENT IS DOING SO HE’S GOT SUPPORT IN HIS OWN PARTY. A NUMBER OF STATES, INCLUDING HER HOME STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA JUST YESTERDAY HAVE DECIDED NOT TO HOLD PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARIES AT ALL AND THEY ARE HAS DONE AWAY WITH ITS COMMITTEE TO SET UP DEBATES. SO HOW DO YOU GET YOUR MESSAGE OUT — HOW DO YOU EVEN GET ON THE PLAYING FIELD WITH THE PRESIDENT TO HAVE THIS DEBATE?>>Governor Sanford: OR TALK ABOUT IT NOW, TALK ABOUT NATIONAL TELEVISION AND I’VE BEEN TALKING ON A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT OUTLOOKS OVER THE LAST MONTH OF I AS I’VE ENTERTAINED MONTH OF I AS I’VE ENTERTAINET MONTH OF I AS I’VE ENTERTAINEE IDEA. IT WOULD BE TO GO AND SPEND SERIOUS TIME IN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND IOWA AND A WHOLE HOST OF OTHER STATES. AGAIN, THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A LONG WALK BUT IT BEGINS WITH THAT FIRST UP AND THAT’S WHAT I’M ANNOUNCING HERE TODAY. I WOULD ALSO SAY THIS, IT’S NOT JUST DEBT AND SPENDING, WHICH IS AGAIN MY PRIMARY FOCUS. THE FACT THAT WE ARE WALKING OUR WAY TOWARDS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT FINANCIAL STORM I BELIEVE IN OUR COUNTRY SINCE THE GREAT DEPRESSION. THAT’S WHAT WE ARE WALKING TOWARD AND I THINK WE NEED TO, AGAIN, TO HAVE A REAL CONVERSATION ABOUT WHAT THAT MEANS FOR THE AMERICAN DREAM AND WHAT THAT MEANS IN OUR ABILITY TO ACHIEVE A JOB, WEALTH, AND ALL THOSE THINGS TO GO WITH THE AMERICAN DREAM. AT WHAT I WOULD ALSO SAY IS WE WILL HAVE A CONVERSATION ON WHERE WE GOING ON TRADE, PROTECTIONISM, TURNING INWARD VERSUS OUTWARD. ONE OF THE HALLMARKS OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS ALWAYS BEEN A FOCUS ON THE WORLD AT LARGE AND THE RECOGNITION OF THE FACT THAT THOUGH WE WERE NOT ULTIMATELY IS A POPULATION THE BIG PLAYER IN THE WORLD, ECONOMICALLY WE WERE BECAUSE WE ENGAGED WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD. IF YOU LOOK AT THE TRUMP TARIFFS, YOU’RE LOOKING AT ABOUT A THOUSAND DOLLARS PER HOUSEHOLD. “THE WALL STREET JOURNAL” HAD AN ARTICLE JUST YESTERDAY TALKING ABOUT YOU’RE LOOKING AT ABOUT A ONE POINT DETERIORATION IN THE RATE OF GROWTH GOING FORWARD. I THINK WE NEED TO HAVE A CONVERSATION THERE. THINK WE NEED TO HAVE A CONVERSATION ON THE DEGREE TO WHICH INSTITUTIONS AND POLITICAL CULTURE ARE BEING DAMAGED BY THIS PRESIDENT. IN THOSE INSTITUTIONS AND THE POLITICAL CULTURE IS REALLY THE GLUE THAT HOLDS TOGETHER OUR BALANCE OF POWER. AND FINALLY I THINK WE NEED TO HAVE A CONVERSATION ON HUMILITY AND ONE’S APPROACH TO POLITICS. AT THE END OF THE DAY, A TWEET IS INTERESTING, MAY BE NEWSWORTHY, BUT IT’S NOT LEADERSHIP AND WE ARE NOT GOING TO SOLVE SOME OF THE PROFOUND PROBLEMS WE HAVE AS AMERICANS BY TWEET.>>Chris: IT YOU’RE IN THE RACE NOW. YOU’RE GOING TO GET ASKED TOUGH QUESTIONS, LET ME ASK YOU THE MOST OBVIOUS ONE. I THINK IT’S FAIR TO SAY, THAT YOUR BEST KNOWN AROUND THE COUNTRY AS THE GOVERNOR WHO DISAPPEARED FOR A WEEK IN 2009. YOUR AIDES SAID YOU WERE HIKING THE APPALACHIAN TRAIL. IN FACT YOU WERE A MARRIED GOVERNOR IN ARGENTINA WITH YOUR THEN-GIRLFRIEND. QUESTION, ISN’T THAT GOING TO BE A DEAL BREAKER FOR A LOT OF VOTERS?>>Governor Sanford: AGAIN, I ACTUALLY WENT ON AN APOLOGY TO HER, IF YOU WANT TO CALL IT THAT, BACK HOME IN THE WAKE OF THAT IN THE LAST YEAR AND A HALF OF MY GOVERNORSHIP. AND WHAT I LEARNED THROUGH THAT IS I GUESS WHAT GENERAL MATTIS TALKS ABOUT, MISTAKES IN LIFE, MISTAKES THAT WE MAKE, OF THE GREAT TUITIONS OF LIFE. THEY COST US, BUT YOU CAN LEARN FROM THEM AND FOR ME, I LEARNED A LEVEL OF HUMILITY, A LEVEL OF EMPATHY THAT I DIDN’T HAVE BEFORE, A LEVEL OF JUDGMENT. IT IS SOMETHING OF GREAT REGRET, IT IS SOMETHING I HAVE APOLOGIZED EXTENSIVELY FOR AND IN CONTRAST TO THE PRESIDENT WHEN HE SAYS THERE’S NOT A SINGLE THING THAT HE REGRETS OR APOLOGIZES FOR, I PROFOUNDLY APOLOGIZE FOR THAT AND I BELIEVE IN THE CHRISTIAN MODEL OF REPENTANCE AND RENEWAL AND A SECOND CHANCE AND WHAT’S BEEN INTERESTING IN THE WAKE OF ALL THAT — THIS IS TEN YEARS AGO — IS THAT SUBSEQUENT TO THAT THE FOLKS WHO KNEW ME BEST BACK HOME SAID LOOK, WE DON’T APPROVE OF THAT CHAPTER OF YOUR LIFE OR HOW YOU HANDLED IT BUT WE ARE GOING TO GIVE YOU A SECOND CHANCE WE ARE GOING TO SEND YOU TO CONGRESS WHICH I DID FOR THE FOLLOWING SIX YEARS.>>Chris: AT YOU ON THE PRESIDENT HAVE SOME HISTORY JUST IN 2018 YOU WERE RUNNING FOR REELECTION AGAINST A WOMAN — AT THE VERY LAST MINUTE ON ELECTION DAY THE PRESIDENT ENDORSED HER OVER YOU AND YOU GUYS HADN’T GOTTEN ALONG FOR SOME PERIOD OF TIME AND AFTER YOU LOST IN THE PRIMARY, HE LAUGHED ABOUT IT ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL. HERE HE IS.>>SHE BEATS A MAN THAT LIKES FLAMINGO DANCERS FROM ARGENTINA. YOU KNOW ABOUT THAT. HE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE VACATIONING ON THE TALLAHASSEE TRAIL, BUT HE WAS ACTUALLY IN ARGENTINA. I DON’T KNOW, DO THEY HAVE A TALLAHASSEE TRAIL IN ARGENTINA? I DON’T THINK. NO, RIGHT?>>Chris: HOW MUCH OF THIS IS PERSONAL?>>Governor Sanford: NONE. IF YOU LOOK AT MY 25 YEARS IN POLITICS, WHICH YOU FIND IS AN ABSOLUTE FOCUS — MOST FINANCIALLY CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT IN THE UNITED STATES AMERICA ALL THE DIFFERENT AGENCIES HAVE SEEN HOW CONSISTENTLY I TALK ABOUT THIS. WE ARE NEARING A TIPPING POINT. MY’S GRANDKIDS — IT’S NOT PERSONAL BUT IT IS INDICATIVE OF THE WHERE THE PRESIDENT MAKES TOO MANY THINGS PERSONAL. THINK OF THIS, MY VOTING RECORD WAS MORE THAN 90% WITH THE PRESIDENT. 90%. I LOVE MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS, BUT I DON’T AGREE WITH THEM 90% AND YET WE GET ALONG JUST FINE. BUT THAT’S NOT THE WORLD OF TRUMP. THE WORLD OF TRUMP’S PERSONAL LOYALTY AND I BELIEVE AS A CONSERVATIVE OR LOYALTY IS TO BE TWO IDEALS AND IDEAS AND WE AGREED ON 90% — A HANDFUL OF THINGS AND THEREFORE IT’S NOT GOOD ENOUGH. THERE SOMETHING WRONG WITH THAT.>>Chris: LESS THAN A MINUTE LEFT AND I WANT TO JUST PICK UP ON THAT BECAUSE YOU POINT OUT THAT THE G.O.P., THE PRESIDENT HAS MOVED THE G.O.P. AWAY FROM TRADITIONAL VALUES LIKE THE DEFICITS AND FREE-TRADE AND AMERICA’S ROLE IN THE WORLD. HOW — IN A MINUTE, HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY’S ALLEGIANCE TO PRESIDENT TRUMP DESPITE ALL THIS?>>Governor Sanford: AGAIN, IF THE EXACT THING THAT GOT HIM ELECTED. PEOPLE LOOK AT HILLARY CLINTON VERSUS DONALD TRUMP AND SAID OKAY, I MAY NOT LIKE SOME OF WHAT HE DOES OR SOME OF HOW HE HANDLES THINGS, BUT I WILL PICK HIM OVER HER. THEY HAVEN’T HAD A CHOICE AND THAT’S WHY I’M RUNNING. I THINK THAT AMERICANS DESERVE A CHOICE THAT HAS HAD A REAL EXECUTIVE BRANCH EXPERIENCE, WHICH I HAD OVER TWO TERMS AS GOVERNOR, REAL LEGISLATIVE EXPERIENCE, WHAT I HAD OVER 12 YEARS IN THE U.S. CONGRESS. AND I THINK IF YOU LOOK AT A LOT OF THOSE POLLS, ABOUT HALF OF THEM SAY WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE PRESIDENT — WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE A CONVERSATION WITHIN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.>>Chris: AND NOW YOU’RE GOING TO PROVIDE IT.

Shields and Brooks on Democratic debate, Bolton’s departure


JUDY WOODRUFF: And that brings us to the analysis
of Shields and Brooks. That’s syndicated columnist Mark Shields,
and New York Times columnist David Brooks. MARK SHIELDS: Judy. JUDY WOODRUFF: So, let’s talk about this debate. David, for the first time, the 10 top candidates
on the stage one night. We don’t have two nights of debate. What did you take away? Did one or another help himself or herself,
or what? DAVID BROOKS: Yes, if you go by raw quality,
I thought Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar, and Pete Buttigieg just did the best. It doesn’t seem to help them, no matter how
good they do. But I thought they were confident. They were sometimes forceful, sometimes emotional. They’re the sort of candidates that Donald
Trump probably couldn’t pound down very far. Among the leaders and the people who were
actually seem very likely to get the nomination, I thought Joe Biden, while wobbly a lot, had
the best night, forceful, beginning to hit back at Warren and Sanders on the they’re
going to take away the private insurance. I thought Warren had a — quite a good night,
too. So the fundamental thing — and I guess this
is common agreement — nothing really shifted in the debate, but things sort of solidified
a little more. And that’s probably good for Joe Biden. JUDY WOODRUFF: You agree. Solidified for Joe Biden? MARK SHIELDS: I don’t. I don’t agree with David. I think he’s too glib and too… (LAUGHTER) MARK SHIELDS: No, Judy, somehow, since the
last two debates, the Democratic candidates discovered that there had been one Democrat
since Franklin Roosevelt who twice won the White House with over 50 percent of the vote. His name was Barack Obama. He was the big winner last night. All of a sudden, he became the most popular
guy. Everybody wanted a piece of Barack Obama,
which worked to Joe Biden’s advantage, because Joe Biden is obviously the closest in everybody’s
mind, and in actuality, to Barack Obama. So I thought — I thought that, to me, was
the most — there wasn’t a game-changer, I did not believe. I think Elizabeth Warren set out — she’s
got — probably maximized your support, based upon her plans and ideas, which are, let’s
be frank, if a Senate will not pass with 93 percent support in the country for background
checks, will not pass it, the likelihood of passing these comprehensive, sweeping changes
is remote, at best. But, at the same time, she filled out her
persona, personal resume. She’s been all message and little messenger. I thought her messenger part was filled in
last night very well. Bernie Sanders is all message and not messenger. I don’t argue with David in his assessment
of who did well. I thought Pete Buttigieg… JUDY WOODRUFF: And who did you think did well? MARK SHIELDS: I thought Biden had a good night,
in the sense that he went in as the leader and came out as the leader, with wobbly moments. He’s not — he’s not somebody who’s going
to let your guard down at all times. I do think that Buttigieg had a good night. He is as disciplined and as thoughtful and
as coherent as anybody. In his answer on national security, he used
his credential as a military person, I thought, the most thoughtfully. I thought the Democrats were pretty shallow
on national security. And I thought Buttigieg, on his argument that
there should be a re-upping every three years of an authorization of military — use of
military force by the Congress — the Congress has been missing in action for 18 years in
going to war. DAVID BROOKS: I would say Mark’s reference
to Obama reminds me of the where the party’s center of ideological gravity is. I think some of the earlier debates, Obama
and sort of that kind of Democrat was seen as complicit in the status quo, and therefore
that all had to be torn down. MARK SHIELDS: Yes. DAVID BROOKS: And now Obama is seen, well,
no, he’s a very progressive guy, but not as progressive as the Sanders-Warren wing. And so what you saw was a bit of resurgence
of the normal progressive center. And Biden’s poll support suggests that’s a
real thing, in part because a lot of African-American voters are not quite as progressive on some
issues as the Warren-Sanders wing, and they’re sticking with Biden. And so you saw the Klobuchars, the Buttigiegs
begin to hit back on — especially on this health care issue, where they said, you’re
limiting people’s choices. You want to put everybody into one system. And then the second dynamic is that, sometimes,
people on the — on the left, if we want to put it that way, hit Biden in ways that attract
sympathy for Biden. JUDY WOODRUFF: Ah. DAVID BROOKS: And that — we saw that with
the Castro exchange. We saw it with the protesters late in the
debate, when Biden was talking about his late wife. And, sometimes, some of the attacks become
so vitriolic, people say, wait, I like Joe Biden. And it redounds to his benefit. JUDY WOODRUFF: Is… (CROSSTALK) JUDY WOODRUFF: Go ahead. Yes. MARK SHIELDS: There’s a reservoir of good
feeling for Joe Biden. And I think we saw that among Democrats last
night. Castro was on everybody’s short list for vice
president, until he wasn’t. And he, I think… JUDY WOODRUFF: You think last night dis… MARK SHIELDS: I think he was the queen of
mean. He was Leona Helmsley of the Democrats. I mean, that was that a… JUDY WOODRUFF: Whoa. MARK SHIELDS: It was really — I mean, he
didn’t just — it wasn’t just a throwaway line. He came back and repeated it twice to make
sure you got it. JUDY WOODRUFF: He said it wasn’t personal. But… MARK SHIELDS: It wasn’t personal? Who was he talking about? I’m sorry. Was he talking — missing — did I miss somebody
in this? He was talking about the institution? So, no, that just — that did not work. But the one organic moment of real humor in
the whole evening was Cory Booker, when he said, I’m going to — my answer is no. He was talking about he was going to impose
his vegan taste upon beef-eating Texas, and he said no. And I will translate that into Spanish. No. (LAUGHTER) MARK SHIELDS: I mean, that — it was good. I mean, Amy Klobuchar had some good lines,
but they were good lines. DAVID BROOKS: Right. And his was organic, and I give him credit
for that. But, somehow, it just doesn’t come together
for Cory Booker yet. JUDY WOODRUFF: Another piece of politics this
week, just quickly, David, was that makeup race in North Carolina, the Ninth Congressional
District, a do-over. The Republicans won, they held on, but by
a much narrower margin than what we saw President Trump take that district in 2016. Is there a message here for Republicans and
Democrats? DAVID BROOKS: Yes, I mean, it could be that
there’s a message. And it was Trump won it by 12, and then they
now carried it by two, so that’s not a good thing. But my bias is that we tend to cover local
races with a strictly national perspective, and that we see it only as about Donald Trump. But the Republican Party behaved pretty disgracefully
in this race in 2018, with corruption and all this stuff, which is why we had to have
a do-over. And so it could have been in part also just
personal sickness with the Republican Party. And McCready, who was the Democrat, did not
do — he did worse in rural areas than he did in the first version of this election. And that highlights the core problems for
Democrats in places like that, which is, they have got to get out of their core and start
winning over people in the more rural areas. And they’re still not quite able to do that. And McCready was a very good centrist candidate,
good for that district. JUDY WOODRUFF: Some bleeding among Republicans,
for Republicans, Mark, in the suburbs around Charlotte. MARK SHIELDS: Big. JUDY WOODRUFF: And so is that something — I
mean, is David right that this is more local, it’s different because it was a congressional
race, or is that something Republicans nationally should worry about? MARK SHIELDS: Republicans have to worry about
it. We’re going to see it this fall in Virginia,
where the legislature is being elected in a statewide election. Judy, the — Mecklenburg County, which is
the heart and soul of the Republican greater Charlotte area, 13 percent McCready won by. David’s absolutely right that the Democrats
— these are historically Democratic areas. Take Robeson County. Barack Obama got 58 percent one time, 57 percent
another time. John Kerry carried it. This is where Donald Trump actually carried
it over Hillary Clinton. And those conversions, if you will, those
white rural Democrats left the Democratic Party. They barely broke for McCready. I mean, he should have carried that county
big on Tuesday for the Democrat. He didn’t. I think Republicans have a big suburban problem. Democrats have that white rural problem, and
it’s real. But they have voted Democratic in the past. So Democrats can’t dismiss it and say, oh,
they’re all racists, they’re all narrow-minded. They voted for Barack Obama in that county,
Robeson County. JUDY WOODRUFF: Let me ask you about what happened
at the White House this week. David, the president has parted ways with
yet another national security adviser, representing just the latest sign of a lot of turmoil in
his foreign policy, national security staff. Is this just the typical Washington turnover? Or is this something the American people should
be worried about? DAVID BROOKS: Yes, the Trump administration,
it’s always the typical Washington thing. (LAUGHTER) DAVID BROOKS: Now, it’s — I mean, in the
one sense, you sort of give Bolton, John Bolton, some credit, that he did stop some pretty
bad things. He seems to have dissuaded Trump from meeting
with the Taliban in Camp David and doing a deal with North Korea. Trump wanted to do deals, so he could have
nice headlines and a good TV show. And Bolton seems to be among those who slowed
him down on that. So he gets some credit. The problem — I think the larger problem
is that the NSC is supposed to be running the process. There are lots of different players in the
foreign policy game, the State Department, the Defense Department, the Intelligence Agency. And the NSC is supposed to be running the
process to coordinate all this information, and so the president can make a decision. But, with Trump, there’s no process. And so there are supposed to be meeting, principals
meetings, undersecretary meetings, all these different layers of meetings. And, apparently, that’s not happening. And so we have Donald Trump conducting foreign
policy in a room. We have got 800,000 people in the intelligence
community, two million people in the military, lord knows how many in the State Department,
all of whom are kind of irrelevant right now, because Donald Trump is sitting there watching
CNN or whatever he’s watching and making foreign policy. And I think that’s the scary thing. JUDY WOODRUFF: Scary, Mark? MARK SHIELDS: Scary, Judy. John Bolton never met a foreign engagement
that he didn’t like, in my experience. I mean, he loved military confrontation, except
when his number came up in the draft, and he says, I confess I think the war in South
Vietnam — in Vietnam is not winnable, and he has — so he confessed he had no desire
to fight in it, which — being an armchair commando you think might inhibit him from
sending other people’s children into war. But watching the shoot-down or the face-off
between him and Donald Trump was reminded of like being an agnostic at the football
game between Southern Methodist and Notre Dame. (LAUGHTER) MARK SHIELDS: I mean, I really — I wasn’t
rooting for either side. I mean, he was not a yes-man. Trump wants a yes-man. And he is not — he was not a yes-man. And… JUDY WOODRUFF: Are you saying that’s what
Secretary of State Pompeo… MARK SHIELDS: I think Secretary Pompeo has
played Donald Trump like a virtuoso plays a Stradivarius, I mean, all the way to the
point where Donald Trump gave him credit for making the decision not to wear two hats,
as Kissinger, to be both national security adviser and secretary of state. So he’s figured it out, just as Nikki Haley
figured it out. (CROSSTALK) JUDY WOODRUFF: Former U.N. ambassador. MARK SHIELDS: Former U.N. ambassador. So, I’m just not — I’m not going to miss
John Bolton. I think he probably did have a sobering influence
at certain junctures, as David points out. JUDY WOODRUFF: Last thing quickly I want to
ask you both about is the prospect for any sort of legislation on guns. All these mass shootings, the Democrats are
now talking about it. They’re pushing legislation. You both talked about it came up in the debate
last night. David, the Democrats are pushing it. Mitch McConnell, the majority leader in the
Senate, is saying, I’m not going to do this until I know President Trump is going to sign
something. What does it look like right now? DAVID BROOKS: Yes, I think the smart thing
to do would be to — Marco Rubio and Susan Collins and Angus King and a few other senators
have a red flag bill that would — that would withhold weapons to people who have set off
psychological red flags. And it may seem modest compared to what a
lot of people are calling for, that they’re going to — Beto is going to seize everybody’s
assault weapons. But I think it’s important to at least crack
the wall of inaction. And if you get one thing done, then maybe
the NRA’s wall has been cracked a little and you get other things done down the line. I’m not sure the Democrats see it that way. They may want to have the issue and have some
big thing down the line. Donald Trump has said he’d be open for background
checks. I’m dubious he will actually do it. Ted Cruz came out today and said, don’t weaken
the Republican base. You don’t want to do that. And I wouldn’t be surprised if that argument
won. JUDY WOODRUFF: Fifteen seconds. MARK SHIELDS: Judy, this is an issue that
has changed. It’s been the third rail of American politics. You can’t go near it. Guns has changed to violence. I think we saw it with 135 CEOs coming out. I think there’s a — I think there’s a sea
change. I think Beto O’Rourke became the public witness
and the public source last night in a very large way. I think America is changing on guns. DAVID BROOKS: Mark Shields, David Brooks,
thank you.

Republican: Trump Supporters Are “Spasms Of A Dying Party”


>>JEFF FLAKE IS A RIGHT-WINGER
THROUGH AND THROUGH, HE’S ALSO SPOKEN OUT AGAINST DONALD TRUMP. HE’S THE RETIRING REPUBLICAN SENATOR FROM ARIZONA. AND HE
SAID SOME PRETTY HARSH THINGS ABOUT TRUMP, WHICH TRUMP HAS
AMPLY EARNED. BUT HE STILL VOTED FOR THE TAX CUTS, HE STILL VOTES
WITH TRUMP AND OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF THE TIME, SO HE’S
NOT YOUR FRIEND. BUT HE DID HAVE SOME STRAIGHT TALK, IF YOU WILL,
MAKES SENSE COMING OUT OF ARIZONA I SUPPOSE, THEY ASKED
HIM IF REPUBLICANS CONTINUE IN TRUMP AND BANNON’S DIRECTION,
COULD THEY LOSE THE SENATE? HE SAID –>>INTERESTING. I’M GOING TO LET HIM CONTINUE
HERE AND THEN I WILL FILL IN WHAT HE MIGHT MEAN BY THAT. HE SAYS –>>SO HE’S LITERALLY RIGHT ABOUT
THAT, WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE DEMOGRAPHIC INFORMATION IT’S NOT
A PRETTY PICTURE FOR THE REPUBLICANS. ONLY THE CORPORATE
DEMOCRATS COULD FIND A WAY TO LOSE TO REPUBLICANS IN ELECTIONS
THAT APPEAR TO BE NOT LOSEABLE WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE
DEMOGRAPHICS. AND THE POLICY POSITIONS, AMERICANS AGREE WITH
PROGRESSIVES ON EVERY ISSUE BY WIDE MARGINS, YOU WOULD BE
HARD-PRESSED TO FIND AN ISSUE THAT AMERICANS DON’T AGREE WITH
PROGRESSIVES ON. IMMIGRATION, WHAT ABOUT IMMIGRATION, BUILD A
WALL? NO. DID YOU KNOW THAT 90% OF AMERICANS BELIEVE IN A
PATHWAY TO CITIZENSHIP? OVERWHELMING NUMBERS. THEY WANT
SOME SORT OF IMMIGRATION REFORM AND A PATHWAY TO CITIZENSHIP IS
OVERWHELMINGLY POPULAR. EVEN IN ALABAMA, IN THAT DOUG JONES/ROY
MOORE RACE, PEOPLE UNDER THE AGE OF 45 IN ONE OF THE REDDEST
STATE IN THE COUNTRY, OVER 60% OF THEM VOTED FOR THE DEMOCRAT
IF THEY WERE UNDER 45. TICK TOCK, TICK TOCK. AND FLAKE TO
HIS CREDIT ALSO HAD EARLIER SAID THAT –>>APPARENTLY SERVILITY TO TRUMP
IN VOTING FOR TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH IS PERFECTLY FINE, BUT
OTHERWISE MORALLY TREASONABLE. WELL, ALL THAT IS MY AGREEMENTS
AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH JEFF FLAKE, FAIRLY NORMAL STUFF. THE
MOST IMPORTANT THING IS WHAT WOULD A GUY LIKE FLAKE DO IF
MUELLER FINDS INFORMATION ABOUT TRUMP? WHAT WITH THE REST OF THE
REPUBLICANS DO? BECAUSE THAT WILL BE THE DECISION POINT FOR
WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN THIS COUNTRY. EITHER WE WILL HAVE
TREMENDOUS TURMOIL AND RIP THIS COUNTRY IN PART IN TERMS OF
REPUBLICANS SAYING WE WILL ALLOW LAWBREAKING AND LET THE
PRESIDENT BE ABOVE THE LAW, AND THAT WOULD BE TERRIFYING, WE
COULD LITERALLY LOSE OUR FORM OF GOVERNMENT, IT’S NOT AN
EXAGGERATION, IF THE REPUBLICANS SAY NO, POLITICALLY BEAR JUST
GOING TO LET THE PRESIDENT BREAK THE LAW. THAT WAS THE
UNPRECEDENTED AND HORRIFYING. SO THOSE REPUBLICANS DO HAVE AN
IMPORTANT DECISION TO MAKE AT ONE POINT. NOW DONALD TRUMP IS
TALKING ABOUT FIRING MUELLER BEFORE WE GET THERE BECAUSE HE
KNOWS HE’S GUILTY. FLAKE HAD A RESPONSE TO THAT. HE SAID –>>WELL, I’M NOT AS CONFIDENT AS
SENATOR FLAKE ON HOW THE REPUBLICANS WILL REACT IF TRUMP
OBSTRUCTS JUSTICE FURTHER FIRING MUELLER, OR FIRING ROB
ROSENSTEIN SO THAT HE WILL GET A NEW DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL WHO
WILL FIRE ROBERT MUELLER. I HOPE FLAKE IS RIGHT IN THIS INSTANCE
AND REPUBLICANS IN THE SENATE WILL SEND UP TO TRUMP AND SAY IF
YOU DO THAT, WE WILL IMPEACH YOU. ARE YOU SURE THEY ARE GOING
TO GO THAT WAY? I DON’T THINK ANYONE IS SURE THEY ARE GOING TO
GO THAT WAY. THIS IS A GOOD SIGN, AT LEAST ONE GUY IS SAYING
THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE FOR NOW. BUT IF WE ARE RELYING ON THE
MORAL FIBER OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY GOD HELP US ALL, BUT THAT
MIGHT BE THE SITUATION WE ARE IN SOON.

Tucker: MAGA hat-wearing students smeared by media


>>Tucker: GOOD EVENING AND WELCOME TO TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT. IF YOU WERE ON SOCIAL MEDIA OVER THE WEEKEND YOU PROBABLY SAW THIS VIDEO. IT WAS SHOT FRIDAY AFTERNOON ON THE STEPS OF THE LINCOLN MEMORIAL IT SEEMED TO SHOW A GROUP OF TEENAGE BOYS TAUNTING AN ELDERLY AMERICAN INDIAN MAN WHO WAS HOLDING A DRUM. THE YOUNG MEN HAD COME TO WASHINGTON FROM A CATHOLIC SCHOOL IN KENTUCKY TO DEMONSTRATE IN THE MARCH FOR LIFE. SOME OF THEM WORE MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN HATS. THEY SEEM MENACING. WITHIN HOURS THE VIDEO IS BEING REPLAYED BY VIRTUALLY EVERY NEWS OUTLET IN AMERICA. HERE’S WHAT YOU MAY HAVE SEEN. ♪ [CHANTING] ♪>>Tucker: THE AMERICAN INDIAN MAN WITH THE DRUM YOU JUST SAW IS CALLED NATHAN PHILLIPS. AND HE DESCRIBED THE YOUNG MEN HE ENCOUNTERED, THE ONES IN THE HATS AS AGGRESSIVE AND THREATENING. ESSENTIALLY SHOCK TROOPS FOR DONALD TRUMP. WATCH.>>HEARD THEM SAYING BUILD THAT WALL. BUILD THAT WALL. THIS IS INDIGENOUS LANDS. NOT SUPPOSED TO HAVE A WALL HERE. NEVER DID.>>Tucker: IT’S HARD TO REMEMBER THE LAST TIME THE GREAT AMERICAN PEOPLE MACHINE PRODUCED A CLEARER CONTRAST BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL. IT WAS ESSENTIALLY AN ENTIRE MORALITY PLAY SHRUNK DOWN TO FOUR MINUTES FOR FACEBOOK. ON THE ONE SIDE YOU HAD A NOBLE TRIBAL ELDER WEATHER BEATEN CALM. YOU CAN IMAGINE A SINGLETARY SLIDING DOWN HIS CHEEK AT THE SENSELESSNESS OF IT ALL. AND ON THE OTHER SIDE HEEDLESS YOUNGS MEN FROM THE SOUTH DRUNK ON RACISM AND WHITE PRIVILEGE. THE IRONY WAS OVERWHELMING. THE INDIGENOUS MAN’S LAND STOLEN BY THE ANCESTORS OF THESE BOYS IN MAGA HATS AND DARE TO LECTURE HIM ABOUT WALLS WHO LOOK VERY MUCH LIKE HIM OUT OF WHAT THEY WERE CALLING OUT OF THEIR COUNTRY. IT WAS INFURIATING TO A LOT OF PEOPLE. AT THE SAME TIME, WAS ALSO STRANGELY COMFORTING TO THOSE WHO WATCHED IT FROM BROOKLYN AND L.A. THE PEOPLE WHO RUN THIS COUNTRY HAVE LONG SUSPECTED THAT MIDDLE AMERICA IS A HIVE OF NATIVIST BIGOTRY AND NOW THEY HAD PROOF OF THAT. A CAUSE FOR A CELEBRATION OF OUTRAGE A BECAUSE NOTHING QUITE AS SATISFYING AS HAVING YOUR OWN BIASES CONFIRMED. BUT DID THE VIDEO REALLY DESCRIBE WHAT HAPPENED? THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE FIRST QUESTION THAT JIRNLSES JOURNALISTS ASKED. CHECKING FACTS IS WHAT JOURNALISTS ARE PAID TO DO. FIRST LINE OF THE JOB DESCRIPTION. YET, AMAYSINGLY. ALMOST NOBLE IN THE AMERICAN MEDIA DID THAT. AND THAT’S A SHAME BECAUSE THERE WAS A LOT TO CHECK. THE FULL VIDEO OF WHAT HAPPENED ON FRIDAY IN WASHINGTON IS WELL OVER AN HOUR LONG. THE FOUR MINUTES THAT MADE TWITTER DON’T TELL THE STORY BUT, INSTEAD, DISTORT THE STORY. A LONGER LOOK SHOWS THAT THE BOYS FROM COVINGTON CATHOLIC IN KENTUCKY WERE NOT A ROVING MOB LOOKING FOR A FIGHT. THEY WERE, IN FACT, AND IT SHOWS IT ON THE TAPE STANDING IN PLACE WAITING TO BE PICKED UP BY A BUS. AS THEY WAITED THERE. MEMBERS OF A GROUP CALLED THE BLACK HEBREW ISRAELITES BLACK SUPREMACIST ORGANIZATION BEGAN TAUNTING THEM WITH RACIAL EPITAPHS AND THEN NATHAN PHILLIPS, THE NOW FAMOUS INDIAN ACTIVIST APPROACHED THEM POUNDING ON HIS DRUM. THE FOOTAGE SEEMS TO SUGGEST THE BOYS WERE UNSURE WHETHER PHILLIPS WAS HOSTILE OR TAKING THEIR SIDE AGAINST THE BLACK HEBREW ISRAELITES. BUT, IN ANY CASE, THERE IS NO EVIDENCE AT ALL THAT ANYBODY SAID BUILD A WALL. HERE’S A SELECTION OF WHAT DIDN’T MAKE SOCIAL MEDIA. [SHOUTING]>>Tucker: SO WHAT REALLY HAPPENED ON FRIDAY? YOU CAN WATCH FOR YOURSELF AND DECIDE. THERE IS PLENTY OF VIDEO OUT THERE OF IT. AND SOME OF IT IS FASCINATING AND REVEALING. WHAT WE KNOW FOR CERTAIN AT THIS POINT IS THAT OUR CULTURAL LEADERS ARE IN EFFECT BIGOTS. THEY UNDERSTAND THE REALITY ON THE BASIS OF STEREOTYPES. WHEN THE FACTS DON’T CONFORM TO WHAT THEY THINK THEY KNOW, THEY IGNORE THE FAX. THEY SEE THIS COUNTRY NOT A GROUP OF PEOPLE OR OF CITIZENS BUT AS A COLLECTION OF GROUPS AND SOME OF THOSE GROUPS THEY’RE CONVINCED ARE MORALLY INTERIOR TO OTHER GROUPS. THEY KNOW THAT’S TRUE THEY SAY IT OUT LOUD. AND THAT BELIEF SHAPES ALMOST ALL OF THEIR PERCEPTIONS OF THE WORLD. IT’S NOT SURPRISING THEN THAT WHEN A GROUP OF PRO-LIFE CATHOLIC KIDS WHO LOOK LIKE LACROSSE PLAYERS AND LIVE IN KENTUCKY ARE ACCUSED OF WRONGDOING THE MEDIA DON’T STAND FOR A MOMENT WITHOUT CASTING JUDGMENT. SUGGESTED THE BOYS NEED TO BE EXPELLED FROM SCHOOL. AMY NAVARRO CALLED THE BOYS RACIST AND ASS WIPES AND WENT AFTER TEACHERS AND PARENTS. OTHERS CALL FOR VIOLENCE AGAINST THEM. CNN LEGAL ANALYST SUGGESTED ONE OF THE BOYS SHOULD BE, QUOTE: PUNCHED IN THE FACE. FORMER CNN CONTRIBUTOR AGREED. ASKED ON TWITTER HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A MORE PUNCHABLE FACE THAN THIS KID’S. KATHY GRIFFIN SEEMED TO ENCOURAGE A MOB TO RISE UP AND HURT THESE BOYS. NAME THESE KIDS. I WANT NAMES. SHAME THEM IF YOU THINK THESE FERS WOULDN’T DOCKS NEW A HEART BEAT. NAMES PLEASE AND STORIES FROM PEOPLE WHO CAN IDENTIFY THEM AND VOUCH FOR THEIR IDENTITY. THANK YOU. HOLLYWOOD FILM PRODUCER JACK MORSI WANTED THE BOYS KILLED MAGA KIDS GO SCREAMING HEAD FIRST INTO HARST INTO HATST INTO HATS FINTO HATS FIRTO HATS FIRST INTO THE WOOD CHIPPER. IN CASE ANYONE WANTED TO GET STARTED ON PROJECT. TWITTER WHICH CLAIMS TO HAVE A POLICY AGAINST VIOLENCE STOOD BY SILENTLY AS THIS ALL HAPPENED. IN CASE YOU THINK. THE ABUSE WAS BIPARTISAN. IT WASN’T JUST LEFT VS. RIGHT. IT WAS THE PEOPLE IN POWER ATTACKING THOSE BELOW THEM. AS A GROUP. PLENTY OF REPUBLICANS IN WASHINGTON WERE HAPPY TO SAVAGE THE COVINGTON KIDS PROBABLY TO INOCULATE THEMSELVES FROM CHARGES OF IMPROPER THOUGHT. BILL KRISTOL ASKED HIS TWITTER FOLLOWERS TO CONSIDER THE CONTRAST BETWEEN THE CALM DIGNITY AND QUIET STRENGTH PLAINTIFF PHILLIPS AND THE BEHAVIOR OF MAGA BRATS WHO HAVE ABSORBED THE SPIRIT OF TRUMPISM. AND THEN WHEN THE ACTUAL FACTS EMERGED KRISTOL QUIETLY DELETED HIS TWEET. HE NEVER APOLOGIZED OF COURSE. HE HASN’T APOLOGIZED FOR THE IRAQ WAR EITHER. NO NEED PEOPLE KEEP GIVING HIM MONEY. THE COVINGTON STUDENTS MIGHT AS WELL HAVE SPIT ON THE CROSS THAT STORY HAS SENSE BEEN PULLED, TOO. THE AUTHOR ADMITTED HE NEVER EVEN BOTHERED TO WATCH ALL OF THE VIDEOS. HE KNEW WHAT HE KNEW AND THAT WAS ENOUGH. WHAT’S SO INTERESTING ABOUT THE COVERAGE OF FRIDAY’S VIDEOS IS HOW MUCH OF IT MENTIONED SOMETHING CALLED PRIVILEGE. ALEX CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE AN EDITOR WROTE THIS FROM EMPTY SCHOOL THROUGH COLLEGE I WENT TO SCHOOL WITH SHELTER TERRED MIDDLE CLASS WHITE BOYS WHO COULD DEVASTATE WITH A SMIRK. A FACIAL GESTURE THAT WEAPONIZED THEIR PRIVILEGE. INFURIATINGLY YOU CAN’T FIGHT THAT F’ING SMIRK WITH A PUNCH OR WORDS. WE SAW THAT AS TRUMP SMIRKED HIS WAY THROUGH THE ELECTION AND SEE IT AS THAT BOY’S FAMILY AND SCHOOLS PROTECT HIM IIM IHATE THAT SMIRK IT SAYS I’M RICHER, I’M WHITE AND I’M A GUY: THESE ARE HIGH SCHOOL KIDS FROM KENTUCKY. DO THEY REALLY HAVE MORE PRIVILEGE AN ALEX CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE FROM GIZ MOTO? PROBABLY NOT. IN FACT PROBABLY MUCH LESS. FAR LESS PRIVILEGED IN FACT THAN EVERYONE WHO HAS CALLED FOR THEM TO BE DESTROYED ON THE BASIS THEY HAVE TOO MUCH PRIVILEGE. CONSIDER KARA SWISHER AN OPINION COLUMNIST FOR THE “NEW YORK TIMES.” SWISHER WENT TO DAY SCHOOL AND GEORGETOWN AND GRADUATE DEGREE AT COLUMBIA. RICH AND FAMOUS BY BILLIONAIRE TECH CEO HAND MAIDEN. NOBODY CONSIDERS HER VERY TALENTED AND SOMEWHAT HIGHLY INFLUENTIAL IN OUR SOCIETY. SHE MORE PRIVILEGED THAN THE BOYS OF COVINGTON CATHOLIC AT KENTUCKY? OF COURSE SHE IS. MAYBE THAT’S WHY SHE FEELS THE NEED TO CALL THEM NAZIS WHICH SHE DID REPEATEDLY. WHAT’S ACTUALLY GOING ON HERE? WELL, IT’S NOT REALLY ABOUT RACE. IN FACT, MOST OF THE STORIES ABOUT RACE AREN’T REALLY ABOUT RACE THIS SO NO DIFFERENT. THIS IS ABOUT THE PEOPLE IN FOX ALL POX ALL POWEALL POWERLL POWER PROTECTING THEIR POWER AND DESTROYING THOSE AND MOCKING THOSE WEAKER THAN THEY ARE. THE REASON SIMPLE THE LEADERS HAVE NOT IMPROVED THE LIVES OF MOST PEOPLE IN AMERICA. THEY CAN’T ADMIT THAT BECAUSE IT WAS DISCREDIT THEM. INSTEAD THEY ATTACK THE VERY PEOPLE THEY HAVE FAILED. THE PROBLEM THEY WILL TELL US WITH KENTUCKY ISN’T THAT THE POLICIES HAVE HURT THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE THERE IT’S THAT THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE THERE ARE IMMORAL BECAUSE THEY ARE BIGOTS. THEY DESERVE THEIR POVERTY AND THEIR OPIOID ADDICTION. THEY DESERVE TO DIE YOUNG. THAT’S WHAT OUR LEADERS TELL THEMSELVES.
