President Trump, Congress, Chuck Todd discussed on Joe Walsh

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Your chance to get in below sixteen hundred may be gone forever. Now I own. Amazon so discount that for line of the green if you want. But I think it's a terrific terrific stock, and I believe in the future. I do believe in the future even a future with the with a shutdown. Chuck Todd, add Mick Mulvaney on yesterday talk about the shutdown. Here's what Mick told Chuck about it cut number fifteen. Two different questions. Let's talk first about how close we are to deal. I honestly don't know. Because it depends on who you listen to. In fact, I think what we're seeing now in these negotiations and again at the White House at the request of all the parties on the hill is sorta step back. We're still participating we're still listening. We're still talking, but we're not leading the in the negotiations were sitting there watching what's happening. And what we hear is just as varied as what you just played out. It sorta depends on who you talk to. I've heard that there may be a deal with as much as two point one or two point five billion dollars for for border fence, then I hear that there may be zero or as little as eight hundred million for the border fence. There's one democrat who apparently wants to not only reduce the spending this year, but go back and take money away from previous years that hasn't been spent yet. So it's all over the map. And I think it's all over the map because of the Democrats and all over the map because of what you just played on the introduction to this segment. Two billion is the number. We keep caring for though, this this additional money. He wanted to five point seven two. Seems to be the number that everybody's circling is that an acceptable number. This is how the president looks at it and agree or disagree with him. You may agree disagree, folks. Watching this may have different opinions about it for the president really does believe that there is a national security crisis and humanitarian crisis at the border, and he will do something about it. So whether or not he gets one point six billion dollars from congress whether or not he gets two point five or five point seven he's going to do whatever he legally can to secure that border. So you have to look at this. I think check in terms of the larger the larger agreements regarding what we're going to do on this other. So is it fair to say, whatever congress, a handsome he'll sign he just may not be enthusiastic about it. I don't think so not ready to go the definitive we cannot definitively rule out of government shutdown end of this week. You absolutely cannot. And here's why okay, let's say for sake of this discussion that the Democrats prevail and the hardcore left wing, Democrats, prevail was a democrat congresswoman. Who put on a tank yesterday about zero dollars for DHS? So let's say the hardcore left wing of the democrat party prevails this negotiation, and they put a Bill on the president's desk with zero money for the wallet eight hundred million absurdly, low number how does he sign that? He cannot in good faith sign that it takes a presidential signature spending. Bill. Can you imagine two different questions? Let's talk. I could happen. All I can tell you is it can happen. Stay tuned. If the Democrats are unreasonable, the President Trump it if they're reasonable. He will and I do not rule out a declaration of national emergency. And I teach my class on Thursday. Youngstown sheet into one of the most famous cases in the supreme court, and there are bike seven opinions and nine opinions and the Pirker him opinion saying Harry Truman can't sees the steel mills and then six agreeing and three dissenting. I don't know. How many there were lots? I always teach the black opinion mostly Justice Jackson's opinion, which explains the zones of presidential power zone. One floodtide of presidential authority is when the president acts with the backing of the congress, even so that's not sufficient over all the constitution. As we saw with a bunch of the detainee bills in the first decade of the century following nine eleven congress would empower the president to handle detainees at Gitmo in a particular fashion and the zone run the president, and the congress agreed on what to do in the in the supreme court said, Nope, not good enough and found it unconstitutional so zone. One is not necessarily constitutional. But it usually is zone. Three is when the president has been explicitly forbidden to do what he proposes to do. Or she proposes to do in the future that zone one the low tide presidential that zone three excuse me, the low tide of presidential thorny zone to which Justice Jackson described with great. Extended analogies citing among others Joseph and the story of interpreting Pharaoh's dreams is where the president acts as commander in chief and executive of the wedge taking care to faithfully execute. The laws the chief executive the United States and congress had given him some thority but hasn't spoken specifically to the authorities requested that so two and so the president's in zone two if he declares a national emergency. And we just don't know how that's going to turn out anybody who tells you. They know is lying. We don't know. It depends on this court their view of the unitary executive the money that the president uses the people that he uses to build it. The president cannot authorize new appropriations individually. He can use money lying around. That's not designated for a particular use and put it into the construction of border barriers and he can use the army, by the way to build it near mcchord engineers, so watch that space. Nobody knows what talk with Tien San Antonio. Good morning. You're on the Hugh Hewitt Show. How are you? You. When it comes to be a lady from Minnesota, and whether or not she is appropriate, and it's good enough person rapper president or whatever it is. Hardcore leftist, and there are no good ones. And you know, it's it's kind of it's it's disingenuous to even assume that they if there are any moderate Democrats did breakthrough that they're even going to have boys within the Democratic Party. You know? So that's kind of where they're at. And and you hang out lot allotted MSNBC with Chuck Todd and Stephanie role and all this, and I kind of feel like you're a truckload event collect with a teaspoon of wisdom. And it's really hard to swallow sometimes because you're taking over for Bill Bennett who was always he's like Dennis Prager. And and you you're difficult to listen to because I you know, you you were the one who called for Donald Trump to step down after the Billy Bush. He needs to give it to Mike Pence mismatch, and you know, all the way up to the football game. You're calling for them to play the game over again. I'm listening to you. And I'm like, what is this guy? Talking about wrap wrapping up. There are no good left. Is. There are no good left tight. You're always welcome to call. I love people like you. But they share replayed the game. You know that don't you? No, that's a terrible tie the game that was injustice here. Bill Bennett agrees with me on that nobody'll agrees. Bill Bill agrees with me, and you can call not everybody knows that that was illegitimate. That's why the the the patriots won the crime Victorian play the better team. They play the worst team patriots fan. You're really a patriots fan, aren't you? That's what you are. You set your from Texas and you're really from Boston. You want to you you came in here representing yourself as a Dallas Cowboys fan, and you really from patriot land you people. All right. Thank you. Thank you, buddy. Be. Well. Was quite a call. I'm looking at Sonny bunch sixteen hours ago. God some staffers going to get such a beating tonight because it has a picture. Amy, kluber chart the beginning of the speech and at the end of the state. I don't think she Searcy Lancaster. I really don't. I we've been going up there. A long time. I don't think she is Amy the Impaler. But when a story gets legs like this, then sunny bunch comes God some staffers gonna get such a beating tonight because at the beginning of the speech. It does look like the craziest place in the world to hold people went out of there with frostbite. They went out there with with blackened toes and limbs they had saws at the side of the road to take off limbs. All right time to tell you about relief factor, which will not help frostbite, but it will help if you got if you fell down on the ice.

Coming up next
