Donald Trump, Jeff Flake, Lanny Davis discussed on The Drive With Steve Jaxon
This Musburger voice of the raiders on our own. Now back to the dry was Steve Jackson. Thank you, sir. You know, there's a astrophysicist named William H press. There's an Olympic wrestler named William J press and there's an American talk radio host liberal political commentator and author also named William H press. He's also a drive all of Famer those other two guys aren't and you can see on CNN regularly, and he is with us on a regular basis. Our good friend. The great Bill press back with us. I bill. Those other guys fake news. The real thing a fake astrophysicist. Yeah. How are you? Doc goodman. Hey. I have a confession to make since I since we talked last I was actually in Santa Rosa. That's why we've done that too. This was the weekend and. How I uh Carolyn. I took our three grandchildren from Inverness to safari wet. Oh, isn't that cool place man, fabulous? Your or your listeners all your fans have been there. But if not go out to great, did you stay overnight, one of the tents. We didn't we come back. It's really cool. Well, damn sorry. We missed you again. But we're going to see this week. And as a matter of fact. The Lanny Davis made the reservations at this. It seems to be a pretty expensive Greek restaurant. What does it Kalari? Have you ever heard of? I know it. Well. I looked at the menu today. It looks great. So we shall see Thursday or what? He made the reservation because it's in his building. Oh, it is. Yes. Okay. So far. And we're staying on K street. So we're pretty close to all right? Good. It's going to be cool. I can't wait. And by the way. Perfect. So we invite invite Lanny's plant Mike eleven. Michael cohen. I'm sorry. My cook cook. I told her I told Lanny to invite him, but I don't know. Well, if not we can invite invite Brett Cavanaugh he has nothing to do this week. Sweat. We're also having lunch in the congressional dining room. And I'm hoping to see some some folks there that we can laugh at. You will. There are a lot of clouds. The big cats. Man. And by the way, I said this on the air before we got you on the phone Lanny's turned to pay he booked the reservations. The first time he stiffed us, and you had to pay in the next time we paid and then it's his turn. Yeah. I'm leaving my credit card home. Yeah. I think I will too. Sorry, Linnea get no cash. No credit card. This is gonna be fun. Okay. So give me your thoughts on the cavenaugh situation. We just had our congressman Mike Thompson on talking about what a circus that it has been and you've never seen anything like this in all your years in Washington. First of all the hearing the hearings. Right. I've been a total total sham. I mean. Yeah. A complete sham. It's. The plan was and the Republicans were really hard at it and ramming it through. I mean, you know, they're playing they were going to vote last Friday committee vote Saturday on the full Senate Sunday, they're going to swear him in. And today he was going to have this black robes on be on the bench. Yup. Right now. Fortunately, a couple of Women's Day today by confronting Jeff flake. But still here's what I worry about. Now. I'm appraises FBI investigation is going to be a sham. I personally started out. They were going to talk to four people. They weren't even gonna talk to Jewish sweating echo third woman with very credible accusations against against Cavanaugh. They weren't even gonna talk to Dr for herself. I didn't think we're gonna talk to capitol. So it was just going to be. I think you know. I just I don't know a Dr pie if you will. Now, it looks like under pressure. They're going to expand it a little more, by the way. I just saw just just not the lawyer Mark judges lawyer confirms that he is talking to the FBI speak. Yeah. I just saw that too. So that that is happening. But and then this guy from North Carolina came forward. So we have to remember this is not here's what my hope is. This is not a court of law. They don't have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt. All they have to do is prove is raise enough questions about Brad Kavanagh, veracity and character and temperament to give people like Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Jeff flake, and Joe Manchin a good enough excuse to vote. No, right. And so I I I'm not real real hopeful. But I think it could happen. They just nailed down there again. They don't have to nail it. They held down the cavenaugh and judge and this and Christine Ford were in the same place ever at the same house ever at the same party ever to me. That's enough. Now this guy because he he claimed of course, he never saw never newer. Right. Exactly. Yeah. And that's lying to congress, and that's a felony. Yeah. So let's not forget. You lied to congress about a lot of other stuff be forced to testify. He had lied about. His he had lied about his role in the torture memos from the Bush White House. He lied about some of the judges that he helped that in the Bush memos. He lied about these emails at the lady asked him about. So all ready lie. They just sort of looked the other way, but I'm immense McCollum, no doubt. He's still going to ram this through. But he may just may find he doesn't have the votes at the end of the week. You know, what really stood out for me? Kavanagh's opening remarks the other day. He brings in the Clintons, and the Democrats, and it makes it totally political in the supreme court's not supposed to be political. Although we know it it is. But I thought that was telling his L, well, certainly. There are Republicans on the court. I mean starting with a chief Justice, but. Yeah. The supreme court has never been as openly blatantly political as as Cavanaugh. I mean, the whole thing about going on Fox News with his wife. You know, he looked like a candidate who got in trouble like, you know, like Bill Clinton victory fan or whomever and his opening. Donald trump. Could have and probably did. Right. Those opening remarks right accusing the Democrats of Clinton's revenge cheeses and saying you better watch out. We're gonna get you. What comes around those around? Lindsey Graham, Lindsey Graham going ballistic has always entertaining though. Oh, Lindsey Graham and Kate. Mckinnon. Yeah. Beautiful hidden secret. I think forget that. He cannot go from McCain Republican to a Trump Republican up Trumper total Trumper overnight and have any soul or any credibility left. You know, what I mean discussing right? So other thing about cavenaugh is think about all the cases he would have to recuse himself from if there's anything where there a lot of cases are brought by democratic senators challenging certain laws or things, you know, he's has to recuse himself from all of those people could demand that. So I I think he'd have to recuse himself from anything having to do with sexual assault or. Women's issues women's rights, basically. Yeah. So the more that more and more comes up this. This guy does not have the character or or the temperament to be on the supreme court of the United States. I just just all we need is to Republicans to see that. And we're back to ground zero. You brought up you brought up Kate McKinnon that Saturday night. Live cold open was one of the greatest things I've ever seen in my life. Matt damon? Matt Matt Damon killed it. I don't know what the word stop the. Yeah. That was amazing. Well, we gotta talk about your new book. You're just you're just pumped on these books out, buddy. Oh man to a year. That's it. Well, this one I love this one. To Trump must go the top one hundred reasons to dump Trump and the one reason to keep them. I can't wait to hear what the one reason is personal. I have to apologize because there are more than one hundred reasons, right. If I had to exercise my publisher for speed exercise a little discipline and keep it to one hundred. That's why we say that top one hundred visas, but my website Bill press, show dot com. People got a website, you can add your own reasons. So people have been adding reason. One hundred fifty already I mean. Today on this whole welcome Friday. This whole thing about climate change the latest thing that he did that. I just added. So it's a lot more than one hundred. But you know, I seriously I want to delay the case where people have to I see this as a companion to the Woodward Woodward book, right? It'd be Woodward. Talked about chaos inside the White House. I talk about undocumented all the damage that this guy has done in less than two years damage is gonna take us decades to recover from. And I think people have to know what that case is and start moving in on the first the first step is really to take back the house and the twenty seven in these midterms coming up in about thirty days because that will really ever really big road block at Donald Trump's way and Democrats and get back to the Senate to then you could stop all these judicial appointments and on also by the way clock anybody. Else from the supreme court. So so, you know, I just wanted to wake people up and and make the case for Donald Trump. Now one reason. Yeah. The one reason to keep them. Well, it could be because he's good for ratings for people like you and me. Could be because he's been good for Democrats. More Democrats running for office hurting out the vote. You know, I've been ever write checks and there were before. But the reason I chose is Mike Pence, Mike great. He comes across as calm and reasonable. You know, sort of middle of the road, and he's not he's an X number one extreme right-winger. He's a true believer. Where Donald Trump is not right. And also having served in congress. Particularly I think he'd be more effective in getting some stuff done. Right. So be careful what you ask or you might get it. So I asked Maxine Waters about that. By the way. Really? I said I said, Maxine, we've peach Trump we're gonna get stuck with that Pence acce- what time let's get rid of Trump and go grafter pets. Well, you know, my problem. Pence scares the hell out of me and. As a fellow talk show host. You know that he is not going to be entertaining like Trump. So no us up, right? That's right. That's right. Yeah. One hundred reasons for keeping this because for the deuce biz. Right all the cable channels, and and talk radio like you me. It's been a gold. My every freaking day. I'm waiting. I'm waiting for a slow news day. We haven't had one in the last eighteen months. Yeah. And this is a great time move. We realized we're lucky that we're coming to DC this week because between cabin in the midterms and all the mayhem going on. This is going to be fascinating. You know, that's three days away. You realize all this could happen. In the next few days. I'm sure it will be talking about all the new stuff at launch on Thursday. But I'm sure well when I finished my show Friday morning. They'd had that sham of a hearing on Thursday. And then they just ignored all of it. And they were going to vote, you know, and it was and then particularly when flake came out and said he was going to vote. Yes. I just figured Harvey held. It's all over. Yeah. It's over by the end of the day on Friday. Holy mackerel. That was the one thing we have to remember and kind of gets lost in the shuffle. Here is despite all of that the judiciary committee did vote to recommend him to the floor. So. He's going to the floor within that eleven to ten recommendation from the Senate Judiciary committee despite all of her testimony despite all the allegations despite all the questions despite an FBI investigation. They still voted eleven to ten. Yeah. So. It's not as good as maybe it looks on the surface. Okay. Yeah. The Bill press show dot com is the website. You can hear the Bill press show at that website. And check out the new book. Trump must go the top one hundred reasons to dump Trump and one reason to keep them. I can't wait till you gotta bring a couple of copies to lunch Thursday, man. I'll have them. There you go. And lunch as well. And then you can sign up. Fred, Dr hall of Famer Bill press, we will see a Thursday, man. Can't wait to see. Okay. Thanks. Likewise. Cool. Oh, yeah. This is gonna be epic. Epoch I say. Were you been Jefferson Beauregard inter in the third? I had to check which one was my then I just been just been busy. Yeah. Really today. I was working out. And then I got stuck in a Taco Bell. That's right. You were stuck at the Taco Bell across the street for a half hour managed during the school grant. So that's right now, that's Jeff the intern. Good, man. Good, man. All right. Any word from Laney? He's probably listening and realize that he's gonna buy books and lunch didn't wanna talk to us. Now. Okay. What are we doing? Then call an audible figure it out gotta Wilders. Now, he's in Germany, and they won't let them send audio files for some reason. He said the Germans don't like me for some reason. All right. Well, anyway, we'll figure it out. And we'll be back after the top of the hour break with the assistant city manager.
