Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Now, it's time for the last word flip alley billing thrones odonnell hot alley. How are you kind of weird that this is the only place we meet these days, but it is terrific to see you have an excellent thanksgiving. I'm thankful for the privilege of working with you and for being your friend. I will take any opportunity to see you. Thank you. My friend have a wonderful show and happy thanksgiving. All right, Joe. Thank you. I'm Elliot Chelsea and for Lawrence O'Donnell. The Blue Wave is getting bigger and President Trump is facing more resistance than he has ever faced before today. Even the chief Justice of the supreme court John Roberts pushed back against the president. After Trump tried to blame quote and Obama judge for his administration's latest court loss. We're going to have more on chief Justice Roberts defense of the federal courts against the president and the unprecedented. War of words that followed later in the hour, but there's resistance outside the courtroom that might have even more long lasting consequences for President Trump. Michael Moore joins me just a moment with a fresh perspective on what? What comes after America's historic rebuke of President Trump in the midterms? And yes, it was historic. The cook political report David Wasserman now says that the Democrats margin in raw house votes breaks the record for the biggest win by either party in the history of midterm elections. The vote total from cook shows Democrats, one eight point nine million more house votes than Republicans did with fifty nine point three million votes to Republicans fifty point four million votes that democratic lead in raw votes is even bigger than the previous record in the nineteen seventy four midterms that happened just a few months after president Richard Nixon resigned in disgrace following Watergate, but that's Incan for a moment. Voters chose Democrats by more votes under President Trump than they chose Democrats after Watergate that's not just a barrister. It's hard to imagine a more worrying statistic for President Trump as he faces his own re-election prospects in twenty twenty except maybe this democratic pollster STAN Greenberg has a new piece in the New York Times where he concludes that Trump is beginning to lose his grip with the voters who elected him Greenberg says it wasn't just the reliable democratic coalition that drove the Blue Wave in these last midterms, quote, the two thousand eighteen election was much bigger than that it was transformative knocking down what we assumed were electoral college certainties Democrats got their wave in part because a significant portion of male and female, white working class voters, abandoned, Mr. Trump and his Republican allies Democrats made their biggest gains in the rural parts of the country. That was the shocker the democrat wave the democratic wave exposed Mr. Trump's vulnerability and suggests a less polarized. Country. I thought it would take Mr. Trump's defeat in twenty twenty four America to be liberated from the suffocating polarization, but it may have already the gun, and quote and the losses might get bigger for Donald Trump next Tuesday and Mississippi which hasn't had a democratic Senator since nineteen eighty to a Senate runoff that should have been an easy. Republican win is now looking uncertain Republican. Cindy, Hyde Smith has made gaffe after gaffe starting with saying that you'd like to attend a public hanging which some people in Mississippi are old enough to remember as a lynching. That's given democrat Mike espey a chance he is still a long shot, but Republicans are worried enough that the president will travel to Mississippi next week to campaign for Cindy Hyde Smith, but even if the president holds onto Mississippi for Republicans is there any doubt that has STAN Greenberg writes, President Trump is beginning to lose his grip. Joining me now come kademi award winning documentary filmmaker Michael Moore. Michael, welcome. Thank you for being here. Can you see that last sentence again? It's losing his grip. But it is kind of interesting, right? What what Renberg is writing, isn't it? Yeah. Some of Donald Trump's very faithful base as we'd like to call. It America is turning on. Why do you even think that is? Well, look what happened. Why I live in Michigan the three states that gave Trump the presidency, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania all went blue two weeks ago. Democratic governors democratic senators in Michigan. We have a supermajority now in the Michigan Senate..
