Bernie Sanders, Senate, Cory Booker discussed on Live on Sunday Nights its Bill Cunningham


The Glenn Beck program. So Mike let me just pulled away from the declaration here for just a second and talk to you a little bit about Bernie Sanders. And and you must know Joe Biden real well as well, not nearly as well as my colleagues in the Senate, Joe Biden tonight, never served in the Senate at the same time beyond the fact that he was vice president and therefore president of the Senate when I was first worn in but never service senators at the Santa, okay, they're both. That's number one number two. Running against Donald Trump. Do you have any thoughts on those guys that you look as as between the two I see Bernie as having a much more contact with familiarity with the democratic presidential election voting base? Ben, Ben does Biden, I think Sanders has a leg up on it. And if those were the two front runners, I suspect that it would end up being Sanders as their nominee. Wow. So I talked to. I talked to a former Senator recently, and I don't want to give his name, but somebody that both sides of the aisle, really, really deeply respect. And he said what's happening with the Democrats? And he said there frayed he said, the the any anybody who has anything different to say than these revolutionaries. He said, they're not saying it at least out loud because they're afraid because these guys are wielding so much power. They're carry a very big stick. Would you agree with that? Yeah. I think that's right. I think it Lia logically taken to its logical conclusion. This is where the Democratic Party goes it shouldn't be altogether surprising to us when you say, I want bigger government. When I when you say I want government to take on a greater role. This is naturally where it leads. That's why it's so dangerous. I'm interested to hear your thoughts because you working with. I think six presidential candidates. I think out of the Senate right now. We we know about Sanders, but I'd like to get a paragraph from you, maybe we can go through all of them, and you know, little bit. What would we expect from someone where I don't know? How do you look at how do you look at these as someone who has really inside knowledge. We're going to be doing Glenn Beck's two thousand nineteen NFL draft here a little bit. I soon you have more knowledge that he does on that topic. Yeah. So so let's let's high-standard isn't you can we can we start with Cory Booker. Because here's what he seems like to the average person a total and complete fraud. Confirm that. No, I know. That's how that's how I look at him. As just somebody will say or do anything because he wants the job. I I really liked the guy. I don't agree with them on a lot of issues have worked with them on criminal Justice reform first time, I met Cory Booker was the day. He was sworn into the Senate believe as Tober thirty first two thousand twelve and he came up and introduce themselves and said, my name's Corey Booker. And I want to work with you on criminal Justice reform. We he and I served on the judiciary committee together we frequently text each other during hearings, including an especially really contentious hearings. Give live action commentary on each other's questions. Good sense of humor. Really cool. That's this is exactly what we're looking for. We got real announces comma hairs Kulla Harris is one of our newer members. I don't know her as well as I know Corey. She has a lot of experience in politics came to this job after having served in high positions of thirty in California state government, and she's someone who's very outspoken and seems to have a good grasp of popular culture, and is gaining momentum. Because of that all right Amy klobuchar closure, and I work on the antitrust subcommittee together. We've alternated as chair and ranking member of the antitrust subcommittee for years, depending on who's in the majority we frequently. We'll have conversations about when and whether and under what circumstances to have antitrust hearings. Sometimes we'll do the entire thing by emoji Tex back and forth. One time we decided to hold a telecom and I trust related hearing entirely through emojis. Marketable insight to the function of government. Okay. Let's go Elizabeth Warren. Elizabeth Warren is a law. Professor is someone who knows the law really will very serious and very much at champion of the populist wing of the Democratic Party. Although these days they seem to be trying to out populist each other out left each other find these other wings, keep finding this one wing wing that keeps moving further in the same too, right? Yeah. It's tighter. And tighter, circle that that bird is flying in and kiss. Gillibrand. Gillibrand is very friendly. Always smiling always has something positive to say and has an upbeat nature about her that I think will serve her. Well, as a candidate see this is why this is why everybody gets along with Mike is because he never he doesn't say bad things about people. Look if we want to talk about policy, I can identify things about every one of them where I strongly disagree with them. And why they would not be much Royce to be the next president of the United States one that you disagree with the most do you think which one which individual agree with disagree with disagree with most? Let's see. Much as I love the guy. Probably disagree. Most fundamentally with Bernie Sanders, he is identified himself.

Coming up next
