Republicans FINALLY Stand Up To Trump


>>Last week, Donald Trump announced that
the G7 summit next year will take place in one of his properties, the Doral resort. However he changed course following criticism
from members of his own party. So, he’s trying to sell this off as, I had
to change course because these Democrats they wouldn’t let it go. He doesn’t care what the Democrats think,
he’s never cared what the Democrats think. But when there’s a growing list of Republicans
who are concerned and they find this to be problematic. That’s when Trump is willing to change course. So he has lashed out, both in the form of
tweets and in a press conference. I want to go to the clips first. Here’s Donald Trump talking about the Emoluments
Clause of our Constitution.>>Is willing to do this for free and what
would have been the greatest G7 ever. And I would have said to my family because
they run my business, I don’t run my business. I actually put all these stuffs in trust. They run my and I didn’t have to do that. I was under no obligation to do it. I don’t know if you know it, George Washington,
he ran his business simultaneously while he was president. Many other presidents, there weren’t too many
really rich presidents, but there were a few. They ran their business. George Washington was actually considered
a very, very rich man at the time. But they ran their businesses. George Washington, they say, had two desks. He had a presidential desk and a business
desk. I don’t think you people with this phony Emoluments
Clause.>>So he called the Emoluments Clause phony. It’s literally in the constitution. One thing I just want to know.>>The constitution that George Washington
signed.>>One thing I wanna note is he was not planning
on hosting the event for free. In fact, it was clear because he said it,
they would host it at the Trump Doral at cost. Which means whatever price Donald Trump wants
a slap on it.>>Yeah and he would have gotten paid. Even if he said I’m not taking profits of
it which, same person would believe. He would get paid management fees on top anyway,
he not only owns it, but he charges a management fee. So it’s complicated, how the ownership is
divvied up, etc.>>Mm-hm.>>But and then he says I have a trust. I don’t run it my kids run it. And then so I would have told them to not
make a profit on that. Wait I thought you said your kids run it. Then you just said you would tell them what
to do. Oops, okay. And if you are wondering what George Washington’s
business was, it was a hemp farm. And so if, dude you can make pants out of
it.>>Turns out you could and George Washington
apparently was. But he was not dealing with other countries,
he was selling stuff inside this country. So they’ve wouldn’t have affected the money
Emoluments Clause at all, the Emoluments Clause is about how you can’t get paid by other countries. The G7 countries are other countries.>>Mm-hm.>>They’re not Americans, that’s the whole
point. And so
>>No one would’ve known that.>>Yeah.>>No one would’ve known that the G7 summit
would include other countries.>>And no one knew about George Washington
businesses until I found out about it. Okay, and, and it would have been the best
G7 ever. Come on, I mean.>>He did say that.>>Come on.>>That was amazing. By the way can I just say one thing about.>>I mean, if it was sorry, sorry.>>Yeah.>>If Obama was like I’m putting together
a G7. It’s going to be the best G7 ever.>>Everyone would be like what, did Obama
lose his mind overnight? But we’re used to this guy being a fool and
we all laugh, the president is an idiot.>>Well speaking of him being a fool, I find
it interesting that Donald trump knows anything about George Washington. Or anything about history because he’s not
a man of history.>>Just had a released.>>He doesn’t care, he’s not interested. But for some reason when it comes to wealth
or presidents who were wealthy or had businesses, all of a sudden he’s paying attention. I mean he’s so driven by money. He’s so fascinated by money that’s all he
cares about.>>Yeah, no, look. He calls it the phony Emoluments Clause because
of course he’s never read the constitution, he doesn’t know what it is? And then I’m sure that when he was speaking
at Doral all of his yes men are so afraid of saying no to anything he says. They’re like picking your own property and
violating the constitution, brilliant idea, Mr. Trump, brilliant idea. Now he’s like, okay, who would like to defend
it? And boom, everybody’s got moving, the last
one in the room. He’s like, God damn it. Okay, so then they put together a media of
Republicans in Camp David over the weekend.>>Yes.>>Trump calls in. The majority of the Republicans say no, don’t
do it, the Doral. It’s obviously unconstitutional. We have no way of defending it. And I think that’s the first time a Donald
Trump ever really, I mean, could it be the only time that he’s ever heard of the Emoluments
Clause. Given that people have sued him over it and
a trip but it’s still possible because you because Fox News never talks about the Emoluments
Clause. So he might not have ever heard of it, but
if he did he certainly didn’t understand what it was. And so on that call might be the first time
that anyone ever explained to him why what he’s doing is unconstitutional. So he might be like God dammit this phony
clause it’s gonna make. I swear to you he doesn’t understand why as
president he is suppose to be serving others.>>Yeah.>>He’s suppose to be the representative of
the people and finding and representing you guys. He thinks, no, it’s all about me. He just cannot wrap his mind around something
not being on his own behalf. So he’s thinking, what? I’m supposed to not get rich off of being
President? This doesn’t make any sense.>>So even in his decision to no longer host
the G7 summit at his property, it’s still self serving. And the reason why is because when he jumped
on that call and spoke to those Republicans who were urging him, please don’t do this
is a bad idea. He was concerned about whether they’re gonna
support him in this impeachment inquiry. He needs them in the impeachment in court. So like, at the end of the day, Trump is thinking
about himself if he wasn’t facing this investigation. I guarantee you he would have moved forward.>>Of course. Okay, look, guys, the last thing for people
who say that Donald Trump has a strategy, he’s trying to distract from Ukraine. He’s trying to distract, or he’s going to
do this and that. If it was a strategy to do something as painfully
stupid as doing violating their Emoluments Clause, why did it reverse it two days later? Well, how was that part of the strategy? No, because there is no strategy. He’s an imbecile. He didn’t know that he was doing something
unconstitutional or may probably both didn’t care. He doesn’t care about violating the constitutional
law, never scared. And so he thought, what? I’m not supposed to make money of being president. And so when all the Republicans were no, you
idiot. That’s going to put us in an untenable position
that we will not be able to support you in your impeachment. And then he goes, okay, fine, I won’t do something
unconstitutional. God damn it, what do I get to make money around
here?>>It is amazing. Well, I do want to show you one last clip
because I know you are going to love this one. Here is Donald Trump talking about the financial
sustainability of the Doral resort.>>A great business I have best properties
but between one I lose and in all some properties to Doral as an example. Doral, was setting records when I bought it
because I wanted it for period setting records, it was going there was nothing like that was
making a fortune. And then what happened they announced I am
going to run for office. Right? And all of the sudden and I say we’re going
to build a wall, have borders. We got to have this, we got to have that. All of the sudden some people didn’t like
it, they thought the requisite was too tough. And it went from doing great to doing fine. It does very nicely now. It’s actually coming back I understand, very
strongly. But Doral was setting records. And I knew this would happen. I’m very good at real estate. Very, very good, much better than you even
understand. When you see my financials, which I’ll give
at the right time. You’ll say man, he was much better than we
even thought. This guy knows right here Mnuchin because
he was in the private sector. He does, he knows very much what I have, he
would tell you, someday maybe he’ll tell you.>>Please release your financials.>>I really want to be impressed, come on
Trump don’t you want to impress me?>>That’s right.>>Show me your financials.>>I’m sure they’re very big. So, he sounds like a third-grader I used to
know. No, you would. A helicopter comes out of our house. You wouldn’t believe it. That’s by the way. True story. And my dad is the head of the CIA. And my uncle is the head of the bomb. He looks just like that third graders. He does this with his eyes and make it up
things that are so obviously false.>>Was it? I mean, the Trump Doral was a financial mess.>>Yeah.>>It had bed bug issue, there were all sorts
of problems with it. The occupancy was low, Trump had to commit
fraud, allegedly. And inflate the revenue and the occupancy
of that resort in order to obtain loans.>>I’m really great at real estate. That guy right there would know, the one I
made treasury secretary. Because he was in the private sector. Okay, He didn’t go bankrupt six times by accident. He’s terrible at real estate. So right now there is only two things keeping
Donald Trump afloat financially. One is, he is pretty good, look, we’re fair
at constantly bragging as you see there. I have the best properties. And so what that did was it created, before
his presidency, value in the name Trump so he would get paid licensing fees. So he’d be like, can I run the building? They’d be like, no, no, you cannot run the
building. But we’ll pay you money for your name. And we’ll put Trump tower or suites or whatever,
all across the world and in the country. But you can’t own it because you have no credit,
because you’ve been bankrupt six times. And you are not allowed to run it, because
you suck at running things. But we’ll take your name, because he is good
at marketing. So I’m being fair to him in that sense.>>Mm-hm.>>And then so that’s what he did his and
the only other thing that he makes money off of, kind of, is the golf properties. And wait, how did he get money for the golf
properties with all those bankruptcies? Because the Russians gave them the money. And that’s, I’m not saying that, Donald Trump
Jr. said that, Eric Trump said that. And so his kid said, the Russians gave us
all our money for the golf properties because they really like golf.

Obama Mocks Crybaby Republican Debate Demands


I THINK THE GOP’S LIST OF DEMANDS TO THE NETWORKS IS
RIDICULOUS, I THINK IT WILL LARGELY WORK, THE NETWORKS WILL
CRUMBLE, THAT IS WHAT THEY ALWAYS DO. THEY SELL OUT FOR
ACCESS. BUT PRESIDENT OBAMA ALSO THINKS THE EXACT SAME THING.
LET’S WATCH. HAVE YOU NOTICED THAT EVERY
ONE OF THESE CANDIDATES SAY, OBAMA IS WEAK, PUTIN IS KICKING
SAND IN HIS FACE. WHEN I TALK TO PUTIN HE WILL STRAIGHTEN OUT.
JUST LOOKING AT HIM, HE’S GOING TO BE — AND THEN IT TURNS OUT
THEY CAN’T HANDLE A BUNCH OF CNBC MODERATORS AT A DEBATE. IF
YOU CAN’T HANDLE — IF YOU CAN’T HANDLE THOSE GUYS, THEN I DON’T
THINK THE CHINESE AND THE RUSSIANS ARE GOING TO BE TOO
WORRIED ABOUT YOU. LOVE IT. I AGREE WITH IT, I
HAVE SAID SIMILAR THINGS TO THAT, BUT IT IS DIFFERENT
HONESTLY WHEN THE PRESIDENT SAYS IT. WHY DIDN’T WE HAVE THIS FROM
DAY ONE? ALL THAT REACHING OUT TO THEM, NONE OF IT EVER WORKED.
YOU WERE NEVER GOING TO HAVE ENOUGH BEERS TO CONVINCE THE
REPUBLICANS TO BE ON YOUR SIDE. YOU SHOULD HAVE MERCILESSLY
MOCKED THEM FROM THE BEGINNING. WHEN YOU DO THIS, THAT HELPS
YOUR FRAMING. IT HELPS FRAMING FOR THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, SO
REPUBLICANS LOOK WEEK INSTEAD OF STRONG. THAT IS CALLED USING
YOUR BULLY PULPIT. THANK YOU, OBAMA. SHOULD HAVE BEEN DOING IT
ALL ALONG, BUT I WILL TAKE IT. THAT WAS WELL DONE.

Corrupt Democrats DESPERATE For Centrist Nominee


>>Last night following the Democratic debate
in Ohio, Cenk mentioned that he believed Bernie Sanders and progressive over all won the debate. Now the mainstream media has a completely
different view on who won, and I wanna talk about that a little bit. Politico has a piece out, and the title, the
headline really caught my attention. It read quote, I’m starting not to care, that
she is brutal to her staff. And that was a quote in regard to one of the
20 political experts, they spoke to about the debates last night. And this individual is apparently a fun of
Amy Klobuchar. Let me give you the exact quote, it’s from
Larry Salvador. He’s a political contributor. He said, quote, Klobuchar had some smart answers. I’m starting not to care that she’s brutal
to her staff. Why do we care so much about that? 99.9% of us will never work for her.>>Okay, look, he’s an interesting character
and he has his spots where he brings you numbers and stats and stuff that I find interesting. But like almost all the rest of them have
a bias that they’re not that is so deep, they’re not aware of it. We’ll get to that in a second. But that particular line is horrific. And he should have thought. I mean, that’s a smart guy, man. You’re very dumb comment because you couldn’t
use the same logic for Harvey Weinstein. Hey, 99.9% of us didn’t work for Harvey Weinstein. So what difference does it make what he did
to his staff? No, it makes a difference. Okay, now I’m not saying closure. So I say yc, don’t get me wrong. But yeah, you should care about what kind
of person they are. But that’s a small part of this. It’s just a really bad code. The bigger issue is, they’re bias.>>Look, I think that that quote is not a
small part of this, right? Because, the message behind it is, we don’t
care how much these centrist democrats could possibly hurt the American people, democratic
voters, whatever it is. I would rather have a centrist who’s gonna
keep things nice, and comfy, and cozy for me even if there are abusive people, even
if they could cause actual harm to people. Because it makes me comfortable, that’s what
it’s communicating. That’s why I think it’s important to mention
that to you. But then they have a former House Republican
committee council member, Sophia Nelson. And here’s what she had to say. The winners were Klobuchar and Buttigieg. The centrist Midwestern candidates went after
Warren with a vengeance all night and they genuinely think that those attacks worked
that they landed. But I don’t know maybe I have a bias but I
felt like their attacks were incredibly lame. In fact, I’m gonna show you one of them. I’m gonna go to the Klobuchar video next. This is AB Klobuchar from last night. And she’s going after Elizabeth Warren on
the issue of the wealth taxes. We all know Elizabeth Warren wants to implement
a wealth tax, and Klobuchar isn’t a fan of that. Take a look.>>Will a wealth tax work?>>It could work, I am open to it. But I wanna give it a reality check here to
Elizabeth because no one on this stage wants to protect the billionaires, not even a billionaire
wants to protect billionaires.>>We just have different approaches. Your idea is not the only idea. And when I look at this, I think about Donald
Trump.>>So let me give you a sense of what her
different approaches are. These are statements that Klobuchar made last
night. One of the statements was this Trump tax plan,
these tax cuts, terrible. If I got elected I would repeal significant
parts of that tax legislation.>>In other words you’re gonna keep most of
the corporate taxes.>>Yeah, let’s keep it real.>>Yeah, and by the way, you don’t even have
to agree with most. She said it. She’s at least gonna keep some of the corporate
tax cuts. In other words, I just have a difference of
opinion with Trump that is of degree, not of kind. So Sanders and Warner are saying, no, we’re
gonna do things completely differently. Not only are we gonna restore those tax cuts
or those tax rates to where they were, but we’re gonna add tax on top of that. So that’s a legitimate difference of opinion
and policy. Klobuchar says, well, I’m not gonna do any
of the taxes you’re talking about, and the Trump tax cuts for the rich. I like some of them, but some of them is too
much. Well, that’s not a very compelling case. But that’s gonna get to the heart of this
issue, which is who’s right and who’s wrong. Because they think we are bias. We think their bias. I am going to make our case in a second. But there is an easy way that you could find
out. Well, how did they do? So I am telling you right now, and then as
I have said in throughout the different debates, I will tell you who I think I am, who I think
one, and then you will see it as you have seen in almost every debate. And I know they’ll find it unbearable, but
you can go back and look at the videos. You could go back and look at the numbers
and this is important. And I’m gonna get to the political ramifications
of this in a second, but I’ve been right. And so I told you, Yang was gonna go to six
he did. I told you Warren was gonna rise cuz of policy
issues. And she did, is it about me? Not remotely. The policy matters, it matters. But the rest of the media says, no, I like
Klobuchar fighting back, policy doesn’t matter. And so I told you that Kamala Harris would
rise after she went after Biden, and she did rise. And I’m not a fan of Kamala Harris’ policies
overall, so what’s the objective? I tell you what’s going to happen, based on
what actually occurred on the stage that night. So this time around, I told you last night
I think Sanders won, I thought Warren did one and all the progressives had great. And now all the panels are telling you, you
almost all of them and Politico and on television say Klobuchar and Buttigieg won, so let’s
find out. So over the next couple of weeks I think Sanders
will continue to now come back and start to rise. And they think apparently Klobuchar did great,
so she should rise. And I’ll tell you right now ahead of time,
so you can’t cry about it later and say, Cenk, you’re doing puffery. Okay, I’m telling you as always ahead of time,
Klobuchar will not rise. She will not rise. She did not do well. She went on stage and told everybody, I’m
not gonna give you this, I’m not gonna give you that. I’m not gonna go for big change and I’m not
gonna go for hope. It’s a terrible, even if you don’t agree with
it or you do agree with it policy wise, it’s terrible politics.>>Yes.>>You remember that moment where she was
doing a town hall, CNN and she said hey everybody look under your chairs. And that’s what I’m gonna give you, nothing.>>I can’t believe it like-
>>And upon this look at that and go giving the average person nothing way to go, Klobuchar
is awesome. I get to keep all my money, all my millions
of dollars. And you get nothing from Klobuchar, she’s
rising. Really? Because she isn’t, I told you she would never
get above a tiny tiny numbers and she’s sitting in 2%. She’s barely making it on the stage who was
right and who was wrong, it matters why does it matter. I’m sorry, I’m back here one second to Ana,
why does it matter? Because it’s millions, potentially billions
of dollars in free media that is at stake. So these guys do puffery of Klobuchar and
Buttigieg, and so it’s nonstop ads, Buttigieg, fantastic, fantastic. Klobuchar, fantastic buyer, which is Sanders
terrible, terrible terrible, and that’s an unbelievable amount of advertising on the
side of the establishment.>>Can I?>>And then they say know your bias, no, your
bias is preposterous. You know matter how many times you prove to
you that you’re wrong, you will not get off of it because it isn’t about being right or
wrong factually. It’s that you just want to support the candidates
you like because your bias is through the roof.>>So Sophia Nelson who I coded earlier in
regard to obviously her lufer Klobuchar, Buttigieg also commented on Warren and Bernie. So just to juxtapose which she had said previously
here what she says about presidential candidates. Warren maintained her status quo. Sanders was back considering he just suffered
a heart attack a couple of weeks ago. Wow, expert opinion, really that’s excellent.>>And that’s as kind as they’ll ever be to
Bernie Sanders. And if you notice her title, she’s a Republican.>>Yeah.>>Why are we asking the Republicans what
they thought of Democrats? Of course, they like the most conservative
Democrats, Klobuchar and Buttigieg. Wow, what an interesting story. Republicans, who do you think we should pick? Could you imagine Republicans doing likewise? Going, Democrats, what do you think our debates? Who do you think we should pick? And the Democrats go I think you pick Mike
Huckabee. And the Republicans are like, okay, let’s
pick Mike Huckabee, that conversation would never happen, never does happen. It’s absurd, the Republicans don’t give a
damn what Democrats think. In fact, they gon in the opposite direction. But yet the politicals of the world, the mainstream
media is constantly like, hey you better do what the Republican consultants tell you to
do about who you should pick as your nominee. The only person who would do that is someone
maniacly stupid. They’re on the opposite side. Are you so bias you can’t even see that?>>I have promoted a podcast on the show previously
because I do listen to it daily, which is the name of the podcast The Dailies, The New
York Times podcast, but I will criticize them when it’s appropriate. And today’s episode of that podcast was terrible
and it was also titled, The Moderates Strikes Back: the 4th Democratic Debate.>>Well, I’m gonna tell you what I like about
that is it makes you think of the Darth Vader. Empire strikes back. Well, that’s true. Good luck with that.>>No.>>I got news for you, turns out your Death
Star has an Achilles heel.>>Now, we don’t have polling form the debate
yet, and I’m sure how we’re gonna see how the debate impacted the candidates’ numbers,
but we do have some pieces->>I’m sure Klobuchar won.>>I’m sure, yeah, she won from, what, 1%,
if that?>>Does anybody thing Klobuchar, all of the
wash the things Klobuchar won. Does anybody think ahead of time that the
polling is gonna show that Klobuchar won.>>Now, here’s some data that we do have,
right? When it comes to social media, Twitter specifically
who was tweeted about the most. So if you take a look at this list, you have
Joe Biden at number one, you have Elizabeth Warren and number two.>>Bernie Sanders at 3, Kamala Harris at 4,
Pete Buttigieg at 5, and Tulsi Gabbard at number 6. Now, I’m mentioning this because in the Spin
Room, based on what Klippenstein, one of our reporters said, everyone was buzzing about
the establishment and centrist democrats. And he had specifically mentioned there was
a disconnect between what was going on in the spin room with mainstream media sources
and what was actually happening on social media. So there’s that, and then one other thing,
what was the most tweeted moment? And this actually surprised me, and it was
a strong moment for Julian Castro. It was when he said this, quote. I’m not gonna give these police officers another
reason to go door-to-door in certain communities. Because police violence is also gun violence
and we need to address that.>>Yeah, so look, I think the things that
are tweeted the most is not a great indication of who won the debate. But the mainstream media consistently manipulates
the evidence. Al Gore won most of the debates against George
Bush, so did John Kerry. Combined they won 5 out of the 6 debates. But the media didn’t play it that way. They said Al Gore did the sigh and the rolling
of the eyes, he lost, he’s terrible, etc. He takes advice by a woman on how to dress. I can’t believe it, what a beta male. They went in and they did every republican
talking point. They never actually told anybody no Gore won
the debates, including the one that he cited. They never told people that Kerry won the
debates. Instead, they said he’s a wallflower, a flip
flopper. They did every republican talking point. And so then they turn around and say, it’s
the liberal media hilarious. So look, guys, proofs in the pudding. The polls are gonna come out they’re gonna
continue to come out both for the debate and overall and Klobuchar will not have won the
debate and her numbers will not move. They paint when Bernie Sanders hit his Nadir. He was at 14%, still solidly in third. Right now he’s actually rising and in New
Hampshire, he’s in a statistical tie with Warren and Biden. They’re in a three way tie, okay. And then learn the latest George Washington
University poll. Nationally, Sanders is moved to number two,
Biden has gotten down to number three. But when they talk about Sanders, it is constantly
framed as going down, going down in really bad shape, moving down, right? Well, where’s Klobuchar going? Has she moved up?>>Yeah.>>Has she ever, ever ever. So why don’t they ever frame it as Klobuchar
who’s had a disastrous campaign. Klobuchar who’s never moved up. Klobuchar, who’s had no momentum.>>Whose jokes never land during debates.>>Right, no, they never say that. How about Buttigieg? They’re like, we got Buttigieg, it could be
Buttigieg, Buttigieg! Okay, so at his peak, he’s at what, 5%? So well, Bernie Sanders at his worst was triple
the numbers of Buttigieg. Did a single article in the mainstream press
ever frame it that way. Now those are facts, but then they will turn
it around and say, you guys like progressives, so you’re bias. The original thought as you’re bias for Bernie
Sanders because he’s your uncle. Okay, I don’t know why they thought we were
bias for Bernie Sanders. I’ll tell you why, because we’re progressive
and unlike you liars, we don’t cover it up. You’re for the status quo, and you pretend
you’re not. You’re for the establishment candidates, and
you pretend you’re not. That is a much more insidious bias, whereas
we are honest about our perspective. So now, I like Elizabeth Warren as well, and
they’re like, is she your aunt? No, because she’s progressive. So I support the progressive candidates based
on their policies. But when you look at the polling and who has
momentum, those are facts. And yet as a two progressive take the lead
now, clearly been in the top three the whole time now moving to the top two. Still talking about, I don’t know about Sanders,
he’s really, and here it comes, Buttegieg at 5%, Klobuchar at 1%. No, you guys are so bias, you can’t even see
straight.

Video of Trump Murdering Media Played At Right-Wing Event


>>At a Trump event over the weekend, a video
that was apparently produced last year was played on a projector for the Trump fans,
this is at a Trump property. And it shows Donald Trump viciously murdering
all of his opponents effectively. You can see, Mr. Trump’s head superimposed
on the body of a man opening fire inside the church of fake news. So he goes in to this church and begins killing
the people in the church. Again, this was made by a Trump fan, sort
of weird. But anyway, logos of news media organizations
including PBS, NPR, Politico, The Washington Post and NBC, were put onto the faces of the
people in the church that he was gunning down. He also shoots black lives matter in the head
and Vice News and also very fun, TYT. He murders the business that we work for or
that we take part in. That’s fun. And this was again, at one of his, at event
for a group supporting him where his son was in attendance, where Sarah Sanders, his press
secretary who for about two years pretended that Donald Trump did not support political
violence against his opponents? They swear that they haven’t seen it, but
understand that they were at the event where this was playing.>>Not only that, but the organizers,
>>That’s who they are.>>The organizers of this group also said,
hey, we have no idea how this works.>>Thank you.>>This was something that came in as a meme
contest or section of our event that’s being held at Trump’s properties down in Florida. So the Trump people and the campaign and he
himself have no idea how these rogue people came into his building. The people that are running, they have no
idea how this got submitted. The people that are running the event where
they submit these things also have no idea how it got there. We’re gonna look into it internally until
we figure this whole thing out. In other words, we don’t wanna talk about
it. I just go into it and say hey you guys discover
something we were hoping we could keep secret and now that you’ve discovered we don’t know,
because that’s become the excuse for doing horrific things. Every time Trump gets caught he goes, I don’t
remember, I don’t really know. When he got caught with the porn star payments
and he was on the airplane, he goes, I don’t know, I don’t know, I’ve never. Now that Giuliani is going around the world
talking about how he’s worked for the state department and Trump and trying to investigate
folks, Trump says I don’t know, I don’t know. So this has become the brand for people that
do this. I don’t know, it just kinda showed up. I don’t know who made it, I don’t know why
they made it, I don’t know why we watched it. Nobody actually watched it. No one was there. It just got played in the projector and no
one was in the middle of the room. .That’s where we’ve gotten to this point now.>>I love where you say then you pointed out
the whole I don’t know. As a lawyer, I can tell you that’s the, I
do not recall because no one can essentially call you a liar. No one can say you’re telling the truth. You just play dump and you’re just like, I
don’t know. But essentially, all of this anti media journalism
propaganda is so incredibly problematic because right now is the most dangerous time for journalists. And there have been several organizations. Article 19, a human rights organization, they
issued a report in 2019 showing that this is the most dangerous time, 78 journalists
were killed in 2017, 326 in prison. And Donald Trump essentially demonizing journalists,
this is why we’re in this situation and essentially the voice for the people it can’t speak.>>Yeah. I mean, he has developed this phrase fake
news which originally had a meaning now it just means press that he doesn’t like. He’s tweeted that 600 times. He’s called the media the enemy the people
on Twitter 35 times even after people began murdering journalists in the US. And they like to write this off as like, you
know, there’s been a lot of, to their credit the media, the mainstream media has attacked
this video and said that this is unacceptable. Obviously, since many of them are being targeted
in the video. But the right wing doesn’t care, they think
it’s funny. It’s just, it’s a meme like you said. We’re having a meme contest. No. One of our producers, I saw a meme she made
earlier today, of her dog swimming with the producer’s problems around it. And she’s just trying to keep her head above
water, that’s a meme, it’s got an animal. This is fascist propaganda, I don’t care what
you call it. You are a fascist, you want our government
to be fascist. And so you’re producing media to encourage
other people to see political differences, not as a thing that we debate and then we
vote based on, but that we hunt down and murder our political opponents. And anyone who dares to do journalism, investigative
journalism, even just political commentary that you find to be inconvenient, we don’t
think that we should murder those people, but an increasing number of Americans do think
that that’s the solution, you should murder them. And that comes in a couple different forms. One, you have names like this. We’re gonna show you out there that Trump
has already enthusiastically tweeted out the idea that you should hunt down your political
opponents. But we’ve also seen over the past couple of
months now, if a politician proposes something you don’t like for instance, if better of
work says that AR-15s shouldn’t be legally sold any more, then they just say, we’ll kill
you if you try to enforce this law. There was Ben Shapiro with something about
tax breaks for churches. He said, I’ll kill you, if you’re a truant
officer, if you bent over, you come, I will murder you. Which is not, that doesn’t mean necessarily
that these individuals, Ben Shapiro, has really changed in how they think about politics. But they feel much more free to simply say
no, we think we have the numbers, we think we have the guns. And so if the country moves in a direction
I don’t like, I’m gonna start gunning people down. And Trump more than anything else has made
those people feel comfortable to threaten to murder their political opponents.>>That’s where we’ve gone and if you can
keep denying that there’s some connection with this. But again, if you’ve seen it, which obviously
we’re not gonna show, the video that Trump has retweeted, it’s a very similar look. It can be produced by the same person. I know it’s not or maybe it is, but it doesn’t
necessarily have to be cuz it’s pretty crude and easily edited. So after you see your president, your king,
posting things like this and laughing about it, you go, I’m gonna do one maybe I can get
his good graces too, maybe he’ll tweet something to me and say good job, nice job foot soldier. So there’s people that are like this. We saw the guy who sent some bombs to CNN.>>Yes.>>And I’m blanking his name right now. But then-
>>Sayoc.>>Yes, Sayoc. Openly admitted, yeah, I was doing it for
Donald Trump because these are his enemies. Not just CNN but also political enemies. Many of the people that also appear in this
same thing. The connections are way too stark for you
to deny it anymore. We talked about the congressman that got shot. No problem congressman got shot on the softball
field. Suddenly it’s Bernie Sanders’ people because
he was a Bernie Sanders supporter and Bernie Sanders is stoking what, but you can’t find
the connection to in a video that looks just like the one you did, and actual actions that
have been carried out by supporters of yours. You can’t find that connection at all.>>Yeah.>>Because you don’t want to.>>Yeah, Bernie Sanders has been crystal clear
that he would never accept any form of violence or anything like that. Donald Trump, not so much. Loves to joke about the congressman who assaulted
a reporter right before he got elected, thinks that’s hilarious. Jokes about attacking protesters in his rallies,
he surrounds himself with thousands of his fans and they joke about attacking protesters. Again, it’s just the normalization of fascism
and fascist language and fascist imagery. That’s all it is. That’s what we were talking about before he
got elected.>>Yes.>>We said to take this seriously, now we’re
a couple of years into it and journalists are being killed. And supporters of his are trying to either,
like the lieutenant in the Coast Guard wanted to start a race war. We know supporters of his wanted to kill Somali
immigrants in Minnesota, thankfully they were stopped. Cesar Sayoc apparently was too much of a moron
to actually successfully assassinate these media figures and politicians, but he certainly
tried. And that is what Trump hath wrought. That’s the language they usually use for this
sort of thing. And working at an organization that’s being
lumped in, it’s not a joke. Some people treat politics as if this is like
supporting a baseball team or something.>>Yes, exactly.>>It’s not, people’s lives are being threatened,
we can see it. There’s a lot of people who work here. People who are just good enough to come on
our shows, you should not be threatened because you disagree with these people.>>And they’re all out there and they’re crazy
and they have access to you via social media. And now because all of our information is
accessible on the internet, and we’ve seen people get docs and their information be out
there and then they come and confront you in some way, and it’s a very dangerous situation,
especially when that person thinks they’re appeasing to their Trump god. And as you notice, Trump doesn’t ever come
out and condemn something. It’ll be maybe his representative saying,
he strongly condemns it, but he’ll never come out and directly say, I condemn this. And so people, they continue to get encouraged.>>Yeah, I was just literally, I was hoping
as you were saying that I was really looking up. Has he said anything yet?>>No.>>He’s tweeted, he didn’t find time for this.>>Yes.>>He did find time to encourage people to
vote for Spicer on Dancing with the Stars. He did that this morning. Didn’t find time talking about this. And there was a tweet though, from Stephanie
Grisham, who is technically the press secretary, although that doesn’t mean anything anymore. She tweeted earlier this morning, real Donald
Trump has not yet seen the video, he will see it shortly. But based upon everything he’s heard, he strongly
condemns this video. So this is so that he doesn’t have to say
it, because that would be disheartening to his followers. Who want to imagine that some day he will
begin gunning down the people that they hate. He hasn’t seen it. What has he been on Twitter for maybe 10 hours
since then. It’s been like 12 hours since it came out. So yeah, about 10 hours he has been actively
tweeting about any number of different things. He’s obviously seen it. And there is a good chance that he will end
up tweeting it out. Honestly, let’s not pretend otherwise. If we can bring up this tweet. He retweeted the cartoon of a train running
down a CNN reporter. Now, that is only one reporter or outlet being
murdered but is that actually morally different from what we are talking about today? That he did that two years ago, that he liked
the idea that he’s gonna murder a reporter. I don’t think it is actually that different. Now thankfully, as I implied earlier, the
media has been okay in responding to this Trump violent video. JR produced a mash up of some of what they
said. Here we go.>>I think we need to get back to real truth
in political campaigns. This is dump. I mean, it’s just, who thought this was a
good idea? And especially if you’re a supporter of the
President.>>Also, he’s beating up a black woman in
there, who’s Maxine Waters. He’s beating her up. It’s really despicable.>>Congresspeople Maxine Waters, Mitt Romney,
Adam Schiff, Bernie Sanders, President Obama, the Clintons, my father, you can’t kill him
again, but whatever.>>This is outrageous. This hurts the President. It’s not a good thing to have debated in the
country.. And I think it’s ridiculous.>>If this were the opposite and happening
in an Obama event, you’d be screaming bloody murder.>>To do something like this is just stupid
and it obviously backfired as it should. It should be condemned. It shouldn’t have been aired.>>Poor taste and entirely unnecessary, I
think is the conclusion here at this table.>>How easy for all of you judging me that
I’m offended and upset by the video. You try doing this when some member of your
family is continued to have this happen over and over and over again. And it doesn’t seem to matter to anybody in
Trump world whatsoever.>>So that’s good. The poor taste. It seems a bit weak, but hey, at least there
was a negative response. So that’s something
>>That’s overwhelming from that point of view, like we said poor taste.>>Exactly.>>And every time someone, I don’t wanna get
too far on responses from Fox News, but every time you see and we mentioned and we’ll talk
later about how he had something to say in opposition to the president. Someone else sitting next to was like, man,
we’re gonna hear about this one. They figured this is a brave move to mention
reality when you see this happen like, that was actually in bad taste who did it? And they won’t go as far as say, and we can’t
wait to hear what the President has to say about this. You only have to say some bad taste just for
those people. Just for those people who did it.>>Yeah, it was like it is talking around
already. I don’t know. I don’t know when a show is on. Do you think he’s gonna condemn it?>>No.>>Maybe twice a year-
>>I don’t know.>>And he tries to pretend that he’s a free
thinker, and that he’s not a dogmatic conservative. So maybe but I kinda doubt it. I kinda doubt it. I think that he’s probably gonna joke about
it. Laura Ingraham definitely is just gonna laugh
about it. Sean Hannity obviously’s gonna mention it. But just imagine Sean Hannity’s show, imagine
hypothetically horrific situation. Let’s say before the election, and I wondered
this before the mid-terms. Let’s say a group of democratic candidates
is gunned down by a Trump supporter. Like do you think like Sean Hannity that day
says, you know what? We’ve moved beyond where I can follow. You know what? I’ve been enthusiastic because I support Donald
Trump, but at a certain point I am a journalist, and so I care what happens to other journalists
and this has gone too far. I am revoking my support for the President
until he condemns any form of political violence. Does any one actually think that you could
draw any line that some people would not pass. If Trump-
>>If Trump just imprisoned 100 journalists today. What percentage of his supporters would drop
off do you think?>>There’s no reason to believe that journalists
would be the thing that would make them have this problem. They had no problem when bombs are being sent,
as I mentioned earlier to news outlets, they have no problem when threats are being made
and then are carried out on when the white supremacist down in Charlottesville came down
and were killing people. That went to a defense mode, that didn’t go
to hey, we’ve crossed the line. We’ve inspired bad people to commit murderous
actions. It doesn’t cross that point. An innocent person who was in the middle of
a bunch of people, many others got injured by the way as well. He was looking to kill more than one. It’s not like he targeted one person. So if that was defended, you know, this will
be too.>>Well, the thing is that greed is really
what controls cuz it’s a thought that hey, I’m a Fox News anchor, host, and I’m financially
set and secure. So why don’t I continue on this path? I don’t necessarily need to think about the
person, the right of the person, the left of the person, and other angles. But as long as I’m good, it’s good. And I think that’s truly reflection of where
our society is today which is why we have so many of the issues we have because no one’s
really thinking about the common good.>>And their fellow man as much as they’re
thinking of making sure that they’re good.>>Yeah, anyway, just really disheartening
day to see like some people again, some people good you did a good job of trying to represent
right wingers who are willing to criticize this, but there’s still some people that have
not come to grips with what this movement actually is. And you don’t have to be a great student of
history to know what direction this is going in. And the idea that American exceptionalism,
like, come on, not us. Like everyone, everyone, humans are simple
dark creatures at times, honestly, that can support disgusting things if they think it’s
in their own interest. If they think that their identity would benefit
in some way, protected in some way by rushing out and killing people, all too often they
will support that. And I don’t wanna see it here and so I want
people to take this threat seriously, and still some people are not.
