President Trump, Chris Wallace, Vice President discussed on Hugh Hewitt

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

I have one final question for you, Mr Vice President. If Senate Republicans were talking original about the Supreme Court here If Senate Republicans go ahead and confirm justice Barritt there has been talk about ending the filibuster or even packing the court, adding to the nine justices there. You call this a distraction by the president, but in fact it wasn't brought up by the president. It was brought up by some of your Democratic colleagues in seeing the congress. So my question to you is you have refused in the path to talk about it. Are you willing to tell the American people tonight? Whether or not you will support either ending the filibuster or packing whatever position I take in that that will become the issue. The issue is the American people should speak. You should go out and vote. You're in voting now. Vote and let your senators know how you feel. Let's vote now in a pack to make sure you in fact, let people know where Senator I'm not going to answer the question. Yes, said that because the question of justice radical left would you should hand who is on your welcome back America that, of course, probably the most important exchange from the debate tonight to go. I'm joined now by the host of Sunday's Meet the Press on NBC. He chucked tied, Chuck, I thought that was the most important. Yeah, I don't know. I feel tortured again. Having a listen. I want to take you, but I wanted all the shut up. Well, look, I gotta ask you for what you did by this. You and I have both hosted these debates. I feel sympathy for Chris Wallace. At the same time, I would not have handled this as he did. What did you make of that? Not that exchange the whole thing. I won't let the whole thing was a train wreck. It was, but I you know, you know what it reminded me of, and you're You're like me. You You actually probably followed boxing for a while. I know boxing ain't what you back in my day up. Yeah, you know, And I this The president struck me as a fighter who decided Look, I'm gonna go ahead and get disqualified. I don't care. Because we're having a rematch. We're meeting two more times. This fight doesn't matter. I'm certainly not going to let him win. And in some way he he, you know, sort of To up the debate, right constant interruption to the point where you really couldn't follow their base. Look, there's about three or four exchanges where you feel like you learned something you played one of them, but with Biden's refusal to say where he is on this idea of expanding the court So there were a few things that broke, But for the most part, they didn't and that's what I mean. When I said it struck me because it was. The president made this decision. He could have left the debate sort of go back on the rails. He chose not to. Like, you know, you're right. They're different things you think other people could do, But on the end of the day, the president was going to do what he's gonna do. And I think he had made a decision there that he was going all in to blow this up. Maur than it was just to be aggressive. And look, I think it was successful in this respect. He put off the decision. Another another. You know, a had been a face off and maybe he was concerned. That had had been back and forth. He doesn't do as well, I don't know. But, you know, I think he successive successfully quote put off the decision. Another debate check. He may have come in with that intention. Dwayne very carefully on the Aftershow went through the debate last night and show that the first two minutes went to the president. He spoke no interruption. Second, two minute. Excuse me. By uninterrupted second, two minutes, Biden went and the president erupted inch and then Chris went off. In other words, He waited for the other guy to start it. And then he took But you know 10, he went the def Con five. Right away or Def Con one. Whatever is the highest he didn't. If there had been chairs on the stage, both of them would have thrown it right. That would have happened. But if you had been in Chris Wallace's chair Have you thought about what you would have done because I have Well, look, I think a lot of us would have done it before. Have, um I don't know if there is a No, I really I'm not going to sit here and back to driving publicly because I'm sorry. That was that was a really rough situation and You know what? In the spur of the moment nobody knows how they would handle that situation. So I am not going back with him on this. I certainly had a couple ideas, but at the end of the day, I don't know what you could have done with him. If he is going to agree to a set of rules and chose not to follow them. So what are you supposed to do with that? You have limited tools. So I you know, are You know there's different ways you could. You could think of it. You know, you could say well from the very beginning. Assume it's going to be a personal foul that time and you know, like NFL Rest. Just throw the flags immediately. Right, Right. That's what some you know. Sometimes there's a big rivalry game. Referees will overthrow the flag. So I guess maybe you could have said he should've started thrown flag in the 1st 2nd. Right. It immediately. Sort of set, you know, made it, You know, maybe that helps. I don't know if it would have those. That's the point. Megan Callan and I and again, Chris, your old colleague Meghan Kelly and my old colleague Megyn Kelly. Did it podcast yesterday, and I called it the red wedding debate after an episode in Game of Thrones. Yeah, I think that's what it wass, but we both know I think it while he was the red wedding gown. It was Tyson Holyfield three, but okay, I love it. What is it going to be any of these analogies, But I have a criticism of Chris..
