President Trump, Donald Trump, United States discussed on The Ben Shapiro Show
Around the world repressive governments around the world that make clear they want violent stunts their political opponents, even President Trump's worse statements where he's making jokes about Greg Gianforte, which you talked about last week body slamming reporter there is an actual difference. It turns out between body slamming a reporter and bombing someone now if somebody went out and punched reporter and said, I. It because President Trump was making the sort of remark about Regine fourteen making light of that. I would say, okay, there's at least some connection they're not going to say that there's a connection between people sending mail bombs to Maxine Waters and the president of the United States saying that Maxine Waters is very low IQ individual. We say that kind of stuff about each other all the time in a free country. Maybe it's not the best thing to say. But that doesn't mean it's an incitement to violence. This kind of stuff has to stop. It really does. But the media are not stopping it and President Trump fires back in just a second. The media obviously are not lowering temperatures amazing to watch members of the media claim that violent rhetoric began with President Trump or overheated rhetoric. Non violent rhetoric overheated rhetoric began with President Trump. If it weren't for Trump. We wouldn't have anything like this really reysen rayson was sent to Senator Susan Collins two weeks ago a year and a half ago. A Bernie Sanders supporter shot or attempted to shoot thirty six congress people in nearly killed the house majority whip Donald Trump junior's wife was sent an act. Toxic substance shed to go to the hospital for it is like two and a half months ago. No, this is not all Trump. No it didn't start with Trump. This has been true in the United States for a very long time. People use charged political rhetoric that does not mean violence is. Okay. But violence has been commonplace in political circles for literally decades in the nineteen sixties and nineteen seventies bombings were actually quite routine in the United States where they're not routine. Thank god. Now, we have an eye out for them as well. We should. But you pretend that every the world began spinning with President Trump is just absurd especially considering some of the rhetoric that is used on a fairly frequent basis by folks on the left about President Trump himself. So for example, today in the New York Times yesterday in the New York Times, there's an actual piece in the New York Times. It's a it's a fiction piece says five novelists imagine Trump's next chapter. If is in the New York Times, it's in their book review section, and here's what they say. They say our focus here at the book reviews on books and stories, but also on how the books being written and read reflect the world outside of books and one of the biggest stories out there, of course. The Muller investigation and the relationship between Trump and Putin. It's hard not to speculate about what might happen next that. And we thought who better than some of today's most talented spy and crime novelists one of these novelists the person Zoe sharp. Here's what Zoe shopper is in the pages of the New York Times book review K, quote, the Russian landed at Dulles after forty eight hours of traveling of necessity. He came from Moscow by securities route a long way with very specific task. There would be no return flight in the airport bars, the TV's were tuned to different news channels. But the story was the same. I the president's campaign manager, then his lawyer Republican congressman former aides family members, those who weren't invited were subpoenas house arrests had become fashionable. And then it goes on non about how this guy was basically shadowing the president of the United States. And here's where where Zoe sharp gets to the key. When it was time. He went downstairs took his place in the lobby before the entourage appeared. The hotel staff had been lined up to see their boss, the president go by a few of them applauded. Most did not the president didn't seem to notice. He waved and his desultory fashion. The secret service agents clustered around. Found him ushered him toward the armored limo idling outside at the curb the Russian waited until they refuse steps pass before he drew the gun. He cited on the center of the president's back and squeeze the trigger the Makharov misfired the secret service agents at the president shoulder heard the.
