"The world prepares the arrest and former president of the United States Donald Trump, Trump widens his polling lead over Republican candidates in the 2024 primaries, and the Biden administration fully embraces the radical transgender nudge despite a mass shooting by a trans person just last week. I'm Ben Shapiro, this is the Ben bureau show. The show is sponsored by ExpressVPN. It's time to stand up against big tech. Protect your data and ExpressVPN dot com slash Ben. Well, this week is the week there will be a mugshot presumably the former president of the United States and we have stepped into brand new territory here in the United States where former presidents. And current leaders of the opposing political parties can now be incited on the flimsiest of charges. It used to be that everybody would be a little bit wary about all of this. I remember all the way back to 2015, 2016 when Hillary Clinton was running for the presidency. And the very thought that Donald Trump would say things like lock her up at rallies, got the media all about, how could he say such things? It doesn't matter that Hillary likely actually committed a crime with regards to storing of confidential information on private servers. None of that mattered. The very idea that he would even do this undermine the fundamental notions of democracy now, the left, led by Alvin Bragg, the DA in Manhattan, they are celebrating because they're finally going to get their long awaited shot, the mugshot of Donald Trump is scheduled to turn himself in in New York as of Tuesday. He's going to do that in the afternoon. Apparently, he's going to stay at Trump Tower the night before. And then he's going to immediately fly back to Mar-a-Lago where he's going to give some sort of statement. Honestly, I think that he probably should do a big rally immediately afterward. He probably should have done a rally over the weekend as the truth. If he is running for president, then theoretically, this is the time at which sympathy for him is highest. And by the polling data that is absolutely true, he should have done a giant rally over the weekend. He instead did not. According. To The Washington Post hours after a Manhattan grand jury voted Thursday afternoon to indict Donald Trump, the former president joined with his wife Melania his in laws and conservative radio host Mark within on the patio of his private Mar-a-Lago club for a pre planned dinner, advisers to his 2024 presidential bid sat nearby, Trump chatted with both groups as well as club members offering their encouragement. At one point, Trump showed off his soon to be released book of letters between himself and celebrities and world leaders at another, he began calling congressional Republicans promising to fight the incitement in relishing. There's explorations of support, yet in the immediate aftermath of the grand jury's decision related to hush money page when adult film star Trump was not happy. He said one person with direct knowledge of his reaction. Others described Trump as upset irritated deflated in shocked, some noted he also remained very calm and rather stoic, actually. This piece, by the way, is from Ashley Parker and Josh dowsing. And their pieces have been generally quasi accurate with regard to Trump's response to all of this. There's no question that Trump himself is benefiting from this politically speaking, at least inside the Republican Party. The latest polls show Donald Trump jumping to a significant lead in the Republican primaries, according to the UK independent and a Yahoo news YouGov poll of over a thousand adults. Trump has dramatically widened his lead over potential other nominees, like governor Ron DeSantis, who's not formally jumped into the race right now. Trump now leads to Sansa saying that Yahoo news YouGov poll 57 to 31 that is up from a 47 to 39% edge last month. And this is exactly the predictable result. Again, when you generate enormous sympathy inside the Republican Party for Trump, he is likely to go up in the polls. Trump is still trailing at the national level, a plurality of Americans according to ABC News episodes believe that it's correct for the former president who have been charged with a crime in that stormy Daniels hush money case that's 45%. And again, what this is likely to do politically is drive Trump forward toward the 2024 nomination and also hurt him in the general election. It's hard to spot the voter who's probably going to say to himself, okay, well I didn't vote for Trump last time. Let's say I voted for him in 2016 and I shifted over in 2020 and I didn't vote for him or I voted for Joe Biden last time. Well, now that he's been indicted, I'm shifting my vote back. Once people settle on their notion of a particular candidate, the fact that he's being targeted unfairly is unlikely to shift them back into the category of the person who's being unfairly targeted. We really have no precedent for this obviously. The counter argument is usually made by people who remember that Bill Clinton's sword in terms of his public support in the immediate aftermath of the impeachment inquiry into him over the Monica Lewinsky. Affair and Apollo Jones payoff and the Kenneth Starr investigation what they tend to forget is that in 2000 Al Gore had to run with that on his back and he probably lost to George W. Bush in 2000 specifically because of Bill Clinton's personal issues. So the notion that's going to help Trump in a general election, I think, is very sketchy. The idea that he's going to benefit tremendously inside of a primary is undoubtedly true. So what is going to happen next? Well, Trump's attorney says he doesn't actually know how the arraignment is going to go. Here's Trump's attorney, Joe tacopina over the weekend. What should we expect to see on Tuesday exactly? That's a great question, George. You know, this is unprecedented. I don't know. I've done a million in raymonds in that courthouse with celebrities and whatnot, but this is a whole different thing. We have Secret Service involved. I understand that closing the courthouse for the afternoon. I just don't know what to expect to see. Hopefully, what I hope is that we get in and out of there as quickly as possible, that it's at the end of the day, a typical arraignment where we stand before the judge, we say not guilty. We set schedules to file motions and whatnot or discovery. And we move forward and get out of there. Now, the truth is that the we will probably get the most traffic photo, perhaps in rural history, on Tuesday. Because if Donald Trump takes him up, jot, which he likely will do. If that happens, that's going to end up on a Republican shirt, filling up on every Democrat, will be the exact same photo, just seen through two different prisms because that's the story of American politics these days. One thing is for sure, Alvin Bragg was the DA in Manhattan, a far left radical who supported by color of change, which was in turn supported by George Soros. Alvin Bragg, the fact that he's going after Donald Trump on these extraordinarily flimsy charges, that is perfectly obvious. I mean, right now, how bad is Alvin Bragg, Alvin Bragg is so bad that he's currently attempting to prosecute a Manhattan parking garage worker who was hit with an attempted he was hit with an attempted murder rap because he shot an armed would be thief. And he was actually handcuffed to his bed. That's the kind of person that Alvin Brad goes after, not after thieves, not after murderers after people who defend themselves. So, you know, could he get a conviction on the basis that Donald Trump is unpopular in New York. He certainly could. Is this good for America? Very hard to say that it is. And by the way, there's even some bipartisan support for the idea. This is bad for America. Forget about how it affects Trump in general election. And Joe Manchin, for example, was out there saying, I have some serious reservations about all of this. We'll get to that in just one moment first. Right now, you are looking at how you can cut costs in your life. Because the fact is that inflation is up. Those interest rates are up. So if you're looking at those monthly bills, you're trying to figure out how you can save money. One of the easiest places to start is with your cell phone bill.

"All that matters, right? That's a huge story. Now, you have never eaten food with your fingers. Of course, because you were brought up in the court of Queen Victoria. So you've never eaten food with your fingers. And if we're gonna go on like the scale of weirdness, obviously eating, putting with your fingers on a plane in the middle of a campaign, way weirder and actually believing that a man who cuts off his dick is a woman. I mean, the scale of weirdness. The president of the United States sitting there and calling it sinful not to trans the children. Way, way less weird than now here's the thing. The current president of the United States actually has putting four brains. So that is significantly less important to me how people eat putting than the fact that the current president of the United States actually has putting between his ears. Like that is actually a real problem. But this is going to be the ongoing campaign. So the ongoing campaign against his hands. They've been struggling for this, right? Normally, they say a couple of things about Republican candidates. They say stupid corrupt or evil. Those are the big three. Stupid corrupt and evil. They can't say that desantis is stupid because he clearly is not. He went to Yale and then he went to Yale law school. And then he went to Harvard Law School. You can't say that he is corrupt because there's no evidence of corruption with Ron DeSantis. They've tried evil, but it doesn't really play because most of the policies that he's pursuing are widely popular. So now they're going with this fourth off the board option, which is weird. I don't think that is going to play not at all because here's the thing. If you watch the santas on the campaign trail, he's not weird. He's like a normal person. So if the best that they can do is he ate putting with his fingers, good luck with that. Meanwhile, they have another angle that they are taking with regard to the Republicans are the media because they have to defend the Democrats at all costs. They're going back to the well on Republicans are really pessimistic and say mean and dark things. Here's a headline by Ashley Parker at The Washington Post. Quote, much of the 2024 GOP field focuses on dark, apocalyptic themes. Now, I remember this exact headline after Donald Trump's convention speech in 2016. It was dark and apocalyptic. And then he won. Here's the rule of thumb. When you're out of power, you say bad things about what's happening in the country. When you're in power, you say good things about what's happening with the country. Specifically because when you're out of power, you are running to be in power. What are you going to just say? Everything is bright and hunky Dory out there? Of course not. I seem to recall the entire media declaring that the apocalypse was upon us in the middle of an economic boom while Trump was president while peace was breaking out in the Middle East. But apparently, if you mentioned that things are going poorly in the country or that we have some real serious societal fractures, this means dark and apocalyptic things. And the problem is that the American people kind of agree that things are not looking amazing in the United States. Right now. So the legacy media have this whole schtick, right? It's that if you say that things are going poorly in the country, this means you have a dark vision of the country. Remember, the entire Washington Post that prints this entire piece, talking about how the 2024 GOP field is focusing on dark apocalyptic themes. They literally put a sub header on their paper called democracy dies in darkness after Trump was elected. The darkness was upon us, and they were the guiding light. And it's just it's absurdity at the highest level. This is also why they are focusing in on a little video that Donald Trump cut yesterday. It's driving them up a wall. It's also why Trump is popular. I mean, I hate to break it to folks, but Trump remains popular with a lot of people, specifically because his interests seem to be in favor of what's going on in the country first. And there's a lot of talk in both sort of interventionist Republican circles and on the democratic side about the split inside the Republican Party over Ukraine. The truth is there is not a massive split. There are some people who are full isolationists on Ukraine. We're like, we shouldn't be involved at all. And then there's kind of the vast middle of the Republican Party that thinks it is important to stand Russia off from fully invading Ukraine, but is asking what the end goal here is. Like, what is the actual endpoint here? But everybody in the legacy media is yelling at Trump about this video that he did yesterday. They're calling him unpatriotic for a video that he did yesterday because what he suggested is the great threat to world empires historically speaking is interior collapse. Internal failure. This is nothing new. I'm sorry, this is not dark. It is not apocalyptic. It happens to be quite true. Here is Donald Trump. But the greatest threat to western civilization today is not Russia. It's probably more than anything else ourselves and some of the horrible USA hating people that represent us. It's the abolition of our national borders. It's the failure to police our own cities. It's the destruction of the rule of law from within, it's a collapse of the nuclear family and fertility rates

"That you know as soon as we pull out you see republicans discussing adding twenty five billion dollars to the defense authorization act but here an employment experience the labor day forbearance loans about to expire or always have money for human infrastructure. But we see this being forward. You're you're absolutely right. I mean i would say i. It was not the number one factor but it did strike the president that we had been spending on average three hundred million dollars a day in afghanistan. Three hundred million dollars a day. We don't think that's something that most people in the public are tracking but it's a war. We fought for twenty years spending three hundred million dollars a day l. a. You do the math on that So that is certainly a concern. Certainly as you noted there are a range of areas domestically internationally to where we feel that money could be better spent. And you know i know in the public is tracking it because no reporters ever fucking ass. We never knew that statistic number three hundred million a day for twenty years and all because ebony mcmorris as the fucking question that everybody should be thinking and everybody should be printing. Oh you want to add twenty five billion dollars fucking defence fund. But you don't think you can't put a mortgage moratorium or whatever rent right at all of that. Joe mansion is worried about the infrastructure bill and putting a budget. It's just like that is how you do it. Avenue mcmorris her she did. That's all we have. We have the whole room so all week. The questions about afghanistan hurricane ida and the texas abortion ban. we don't talk about local politics which include climate change disasters or we'd never talk about anything else. Literally in california alone we have fires and a recall election going on right this minute. So now we're going to talk about. New york's new governor and how she's dealing with either. Were not going right. And i'm doing judge julian the next segment on the texas abortion banned. So we didn't include too many of those questions which was fine because they were totally repetitive. And annoying anyway like why you asking what the white house is going to do. Congress has voted to make roe versus wade a law congress. Not joe joe. Not kiki congress. Yeah and they asked fifty thousand times. Joe biden has said five million times. He's pro choice. He is four a woman to make the choices she wants to make. I think kiki has said that. Also and i think everyone in the administration is pro-choice and pro-life meaning. They're pro-choice right and also they're asking it over and over and over and over and they are people who know how congress works so. I don't know why you're asking what joe biden is going to do. He doesn't make the fucking laws. He doesn't decide what's constitutional earn constitutional. It just not how it works and besides those questions. There were two questions about abortion that we just couldn't resist could not could we memo. So i is ashley parker from the washington. Post asking the stupidest question of the week. I mean i usually like ashley parker. She's from the washington post. She's that reporter. That looks like a very cute depressed cartoon dog and she always looks like she just rolled out of bed. Always yes yes her hair but her phases really cute. Like a drawing of a depressed dog dog. The dog names droop. Okay the and it sounds. It's a dog. we liked so she. Yeah so sleepy sad. Also and yeah. She's very chill and then it's like her because she's so chill and apparently droopy her voice isn't tents and self righteous so she doesn't like put me on edge like I so i just. I usually like her but i still like her here. But this just really really took the cake for me. I mean especially since we just talked about this. Exact thing on our patriarch. Podcast like i was like. Oh my god she is not she did not and she is not.

I do think like shoutout to is that ashley parker about it before. She's a good sport about. It was actually spider. Phil and phil rucker was the other one too because because what about your gas became the question but that really. The comedy of that question really does rely on the very specific full question. That ashley shouts full question. It's not just a shout it's a question and then what about gaps. It's the best. it's the best. It's the beverage also have overshadowed your foreign trip. What are your answer. You expect him of that. Yes yes absolutely. Based on percents overshadowed by my guess which the holy site for the polish people. These these trips are high wire. Act so farthing. Biden's doing pretty well. I mean look you know. Not all of the deliverables that activists in policy folks want to see at at every summit but again. It's the first one so you know. Look for a guy known for a lot of gas. we have not seen a lotta biden gaps. Also i mean the big difference in this foreign trip just like everything else. In the biden presidency is sort of like the low expectations. The donald trump set for him. Right like looking at the news over the last week. It's like oh there's not like something fucking crazy. Every few minutes about the united states president going overseas which is what happened when trump over there. It was just sort of quiet which is good and it's like yeah. I mean right. It's like you know as joe biden would say don't judge me against the almighty judge mcgill. Turn it nice not having a a a president threatening to exit nato on sort of near constant basis yeah the previous almighty made headlines of one of these events by punching the president of montenegro. I think so. Yeah you know. He's biden stepping over a low bar here but Good for him. Well well you make a good point when they go montenegro. We really have to go about doing it. But you make these kinds of Ridiculous policy stories have been around for a long time and so now it's.

"Massacre there a and he thinks that is important in historians and other politicians will tell you that is important but as you said there are also incredible limits to that he is running up to and so he you know he took down. The andrew jackson pitching that trump had in the oval office. He put up one of fdr but he is running into those limitations of potentially being enough dr in in congress in there in stuff he can do. There are executive actions. He can take there. Is maybe a bit more arm-twisting he can do. But joe biden whether he wants to or not in so far he's been pretty hasn't eaten up. Personally blow up the filibuster. He can only apply so much pressure to someone lake. Spender joe manchin. Because as much as he wants him on voting rights which is clearly not happening right now he also needs him on infrastructure. So it's a practical game. It's a delicate balance in. He is running up against entrench. Partisanship in washington is not the first president. And he likely won't be the last. Let's expand on this. We could have built a couple of bridges in the time they've been talking about infrastructure is the white house level of patients unlimited on this topic. When are they going to kind of call for a vote. It's definitely not unlimited when it comes to the president's actual patients were a deal getting done here. But i think there's a saying that goes back to trent lott Years ago when you have the votes you both and clearly chuck schumer doesn't have the votes to move forward on infrastructure package with just democrats because used Joe manchin say time and time again. He wants to be bipartisan. Is ready to go down the path reconciliation. Which would be a package. It just democrats would try to pass. And i think it's important to note though even though you know the vitamins Have limitless patience. I would expect the some kind of signals in the next week or two definitely before the end of the month because of kind of sequencing that needs to happen at the legislative level. But the real question is gonna be is. We talked earlier but was weird as joe manchin. End up on saying okay. We've done this long enough. And republicans are acting in good faith anymore and it's time to move forward just democratic plan and that is going to be extremely difficult for democrats to do. I think sometimes people just think oh well at once. The bipartisan deal. All through with they're just going to move forward on reconciliation ethnically extremely difficult michael. You're going to get the last word. It comes with a trigger alert. We're gonna talk about rudy. Remind our audience why this new recording is so important well at e i mean this goes back to the the first impeachment of president trump. When rudy giuliani spearheaded. An effort to War was central to an effort by president trump to leverage america's substantial military assistance to the government of ukraine into an investigation into joe biden's son who was on the board of energy company in ukraine and essentially to to gin up a scandal. That really wasn't there To suggest that president biden had improperly used his power as vice president to try to influence investigation this energy company it gives me a headache star recalling this story you know. It seems like ancient history. We've been through a second impeachment. Since then but i think the key thing to remember here is the fbi concluded that rudy. Giuliani was the target of a russian influence operation that essentially through ukraine and was connected to much of these activities. So we're seeing as reverberations in part at least of a russian influence designed to undermine president biden and a reminder again of putin's hidden hand and how pernicious it is and by the way how much of an axe joe biden has to grind. When he comes to see vladimir putin it's involve a tremendous amount of self restraint for him to try to have something resembling a normal conversation with this man. We greatly appreciate these.

I'd like to begin with you and your beat. This is in many ways a heck of a time to be taking to the air going on the road for president with so much of his initiative still up in the air especially with congress. What's your sense on whether or not and they're usually is a move. They've got something in their back pocket. They've got that they're not necessarily advertising. Well in some way is what you're gonna see on this trip. Abroad is parallel. The what you're seeing back home. At least in what president biden is honest. you'll recall he sort of himself as a master of personal diplomacy and dealmaking. That was his promise. That if you just got elected republicans would start to work with him. Obviously that is not happening right now. Quite starkly back home in abroad. It was the same pitch it was that he was someone Who longtime senator. Who had been abroad of to me. On sort of the european conference circuit the security conference circuit head of foreign relations is vice president and now as president that he again he had these long standing personal relationships with global leaders. And because it was him. Joe biden you will be able to go there and do things that another president might not be able to do. We've seen how that is played out a mixed result. The narain admittedly.

He isn't stead obsessed with the fact that he lost again at something and instead of in his post-presidency taking on i don't know some that he cares about. Or or some thing that we see former presidents. Do he's down. They're obsessing about the fact that he's a loser. I'm sorry you're a loser but you lost so actually this gets us into the former president who you spent so many years covering up. I note that he's going back on the road this weekend. What is the strategy. Do you think i guess Down at mar-a-lago where i'm left to assume is chief domestic adviser. These days is a manufacturer of chopped foam rubber pillows there. There is no strategy. There is what some people around him would like to be a strategy which would be to have the former president play a productive in proactive role in helping republicans take back the house of the senate in the two thousand twenty two midterm elections. But anyone around him. No matter what topic they try to bring up no matter how they try to engage him for him. He brings everything back to the twenty twenty election that he lost. He repeats the. You know the so-called big lie now with new tweaks he is obsessed as we as others have reported in a recount. Our ballot audit going on County and arizona is now also similar obsessed with an effort going on in fulton county georgia and in this no matter what happened is what he just brings everything back to. And so for instance. His speech This weekend his team is trying to script a speech where he will do it to go. After biden do something that would be helpful to the republican party but they are simultaneously racy in for him to go on those trump engines for which he is so well known again likely. Criticizing fellow republicans in talking about the election that he lost. Hey erin listening to michael. Flynn and sydney powell. This past weekend they reminded us while perhaps not intentionally of why one six happened to in the first place in your reporting and the reporting on your website how much self awareness if any at all are you picking up from republicans. They launched this. I'm tempted to use the phrase. You break it you buy it but it could. It could in the end break them. Yeah and brian. This honestly to france point is y. You know this one. Six commission is so important. Because yes senator. Mcconnell said that You know everybody was there on january six and yet we do not have as a country a share said effects there is still a significant number of republicans who are are unclear about the origins or the cause of january six. Oh really a full airing of events From an objective panel that can review the events of that day report. The findings is really not so much for the folks who were in that building. It is for the american people who need that to be on the public record including suddenly the voters that i talk to including the black voters who are clear that the events of january six were about negating what they did on election day in twenty twenty as a legal and any potentially fraudulent. And every day that you see state legislatures kind of perpetuating These so-called laws that are in response to the threat to election integrity. The the insurrection continued. It is prolonged. And now you have the president getting ready to hit the campaign trail again for fomenting The so-called league lie. You know that that just really prolongs. The events of january six in a way that really requires a counter narrative that is objective and clear eyed and conclusive for. The american people so frankfort losey year former bureau. Though secret stuff all the time and no one here is trying to engender sympathy for journalists. Which is a good thing because we wouldn't get it any way. But what is your reaction when you read the latest Times reporting that the list is longer and broader than we first thought of reporters who had their phone records entered into by the trump doj. Here's the thing that your viewers should understand. Leak investigations occur all the time i. I've led many leak investigation. They're extremely difficult by the way to solve. The investigation is usually not about the reporter but rather who's leaking classified to them and we get that right we. We don't want top secret getting out unnecessarily but here's problem with what we're learning now is. Doj didn't even follow. Its own rules so these reporters are finding out about this now because doj violated their own regulations in terms of timeframe they're required to notify the reporter of what's happened that never happened under trump and there needs to be accountability for that. Whether it was william sessions or bill barr attorney general. They broke their own rules. They came perilously close to infringing on a free press.

They're pro criminal and anti police pro Hamas, an anti Israel, pro China, Communist China and Putin boy, They do everything from Putin and then accuse. You have helped helping Putin. Well, they're actually helping Putin and you're not It's the dishonesty. The level of dishonesty is pretty extraordinary. Republicans looking to fire Anthony Fauci, Dr Anthony Fauci, They want him fired. Good stuff. A Republican. The headline to Washington Post Republican white men would be more likely to get the covert 19 vax it vaccination if a former Trump official encouraged them. That's an actual headline. And, of course, black in D. C. Have eight in 10 Corona virus infections. That's not enough. They meant to say blacks or black people or, but it just has black in D. C. Have eight in 10 Corona virus infections. Therefore, it's a racist coronavirus. Maybe now they'll be angry at the Chinese. But I doubt it somehow. I don't think so. And also the Wuhan Lab Theory update is not really a theory the you know the Wuhan lab investigation and this is a complete sham, of course, that the Democrats air foisting upon us and the news media telling us that they're doing a heck of a job because the news media lies about everything. They lie about Republicans demonizing them, and they lie about Democrats absolving them of all of their many, many sins. Many sense got ahold category on racism. We had a riot last night, not not in Seattle. But in Portland in Portland, Oregon, a riot last night to commemorate the The anniversary of the George my death. And then, of course, the gunfire in Minneapolis had everybody running for cover in George Floyd Square. One person was shot in the hospital now recovering from a gunshot wound or wounds because, you know, honoring George Floyd's George Boyd's death. And and again the Floyd family meeting at the White House with the the new Al Sharpton. I think attorney Ben Crump, they're leading the church for the photo ops at the at the White House with the Mike stand in the news media, sobbing and adoring and so excited and all that stuff, Never mind. The history of the story or anything like that. You wouldn't want to talk about that. Because the truth The truth is not something that we discussed openly in the United States of America could be. Could be a big problem. The truth, Nothing gets you in trouble like the truth. And also today, The Washington Post has their story. They have their front page and it's It's not just a suck up story that people making fun of her two days now. The Washington poster by Ashley Parker, just a total fluffer just like honestly, a steamy Valley fluffer, and she typed up this story for the Biden White House. It's a press release that reads like a North Korean Press really start a press story. Biden's typical day is full of routines and little escapes is the one he's like an online, the headline said He's trying to escape the bubble is trying to escape the bubble by running for office again and again and again for the better part of a century, And now he's president of states. He thinks he's going to be there for eight years. Not gonna be there for four years, but never mind that and and it's just treats comma efforts to slip the Beltway bubble mark a scheduled critics called Light. Critics, the critics call it like anybody would call it like your grandmother would call it like I've seen the house cats that are busier than Joe Biden and his schedule and the idea that he tries to slip the Beltway bubble. He's done everything within his power for his entire adult life time to remain directly in the center. Of the Washington bubble. So everything they say is a lie. And they these ridiculous things, and you've heard a lot of it already. I think about how he's got a big workout routine. They released video, which is a joke, and they released video of him lifting dumbbells. And I'm convinced that they're fake dumbbells. It looks like they're £10 dumbbells or something. But they're the plastic kind with like the sand or the pellets and the And the plastic shells, and I think they emptied it out. So it's much waiter much lighter. I think he's lifting like to pound weights. Gatorade briefings, family calls inside Biden's typical day and before bed every night, he calls Hunter to see if he's cracked out again. Because he's a crackhead. You know his son that crackhead no less stuff. And boy they couldn't stuck up anymore if they wanted to The Washington Post White House, the White House photo office pulls together a slide show of images from See Camelot meets with Biden in the Oval Office. Apparently And the White House Photo office pulls together a slide show of images from their recent travel and and events and the to watch together on the monitor as they eat, allowing them to reflect on their week. Have a weekly meeting, and then they have a slide show. It's like the courtship of Eddie's father. People. Let me tell you about my best friend. Biden sometimes takes his lunch on the go to various meetings. That's because he's a man of action, you know, not like most people and most people his age in what Kun's This is an aid in what Kun's describes has Not quite a lunch pail. See his lunch bucket. Joe. I've always called him lunch bucket, Joe, not quite a lunch. But because it's a lunch bucket, not a lunch pail, he says. It's not quite a lunch pail, but his little bag of stuff. It's his little bag of stuff he's got. I think Jack's and a ball and a yo yo and all kinds of good stuff. So if he gets peckish in a meeting he gonna have something healthy, often a protein bar, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a travel size Orange Gatorade because he has the brain of a nine year old boy, And that's the thing that's why he's always touching people inappropriately and stuff. And then Oh, it actually says here he has the tastes of a five year old long time Biden advisor Equipped, quipped Coons and aide recalled once waiting For a meeting with Biden. In a white and the White House map room where Franklin D. Roosevelt followed the progress of World War two. Just a little side note there. And also, you know, Abraham Lincoln followed the progress of beating the Democrat Slavers back into the sea. Just just saying But they didn't cite that..

This time Usually i eat at better restaurants but they were all booked up because man the crowds. Come back to vegas. So what do we do about the border situation. It's actually a studied contrast between those who are fair and those who are not. Let let me read for you. This from the washington post. This is ashley man. One two three four people in the washington. Post ashley parker. Nick muir off sean. Sullivan and tyler pager. Shortly before christmas last year. Susan rice and jake sullivan to top advisors to president elect. Joe biden sat for an interview with efg. Spanish wire service to issue a stark warning to migrants considering journey north to the nation. Southern border dolt come now but help is on the way the next day biden similarly pointed saint his administration while eager to rollback donald trump's immigration policies. I needed to implement guardrails to avoid winding up with two million people on our border less than a month. Later the new president began tearing down some of the guardrails rails himself. He issued five immigration executive orders on inauguration day alone and promised an immigration policy far more humane and welcoming than that of his predecessor. His administration also began allowing unaccompanied minors into the country a marked departure from the trump administration's approach now the biden administration is scrambling to control the biggest surge in twenty years with the nation on pace for as many as two million migrants at the southern border. This year the outcome biden and said he wanted to avoid along with the existing struggled to combat the coronavirus immigration has emerged. As one of the administration's most urgent challenges seized on by republicans as they political cudgel republicans pouts posing risks to democrats the twenty twenty two midterms and potentially undermining biden's governing agenda. The issue also threatens to overshadow the president's recent political victories in passing a one point nine trillion dollar coronavirus relief package and making rapid strides in vaccine efforts the situation the border which biden and his advisors have steadfastly refused refused to call a crisis is the result of an administration that was four warned of the coming surge yet still ill prepared and lacking the capacity to deal with it. Administration officials have been plagued by muddled messaging sometimes making appeals that seem directed more liberal activists than the migrants. They need to dissuade from coming to the country. In fact the department of homeland security secretary may orcas says that actually the biggest threat to our homeland. Is this before..

Facing Pressure, Biden Administration Scrambles to Shelter Migrant Children
"By the administration scramble to shelter migrant Children. This is in the New York Times this morning, and in fact, the border crisis is real. It is metastasizing it is getting larger every day. Facility don't exist. It's worse than it was under Donald Trump at any time because Joe Biden and his team want illegal immigration, they do not want it to stop. They wanted to continue. And that is because they're making a calculation. I heard it yesterday and my long seminar for Stanford Students with Ron Brownstein, Ashley Parker, Lonnie Chan, Ron Kane and Ben Ginsberg. Democrats do not want to close the border. It's a long game. I think they've made a mistake. It turns out in Florida that the refugees of violence and the refugees of socialism turn into pretty good Republican voters. So that doesn't worry me. The fate of these Children worries me. The fate of these young adults worries me the fate of America's reputation in the world because there is no way we can do other than Release people were going to be so we're gonna be overwhelmed because you need to build the wall and you have to keep people in Mexico and then they stop coming.

Let me just remove my PayPal link before I bring in my first guest. I'm so happy to have on Thursday. The great Andrew Feinberg, how are you? Buddy? Good. Thanks for having me John. Yeah. No, I this is exciting for me. I mean, I mean, you've been a volt DC reporter for years right way too long. Just a quick correction. I I don't work for the Washington Post. But Marty Baron if you're out there before you retire, you can always hire me if you're watching. Oh it said that in your bio it said that you weren't a no no, no, no. No. No, I most of my writing is for the independent these days off. Okay, but did you ever work for the Washington Post God? I wish but no. Oh God, I swear to God. Well I some I follow the rules. I don't update my own media and someone out that someone out there needs to correct that cuz I've never written for the post. I've written for the hill. I've written for political magazine. I've written for Washington Business Journal that might be what you're thinking of but never the post. Okay. Oh, yeah, Washington Business Journal. Okay, I screwed up. That's me. Sorry. Yeah. Yeah, it does have the some reason I saw in the independent, Newsweek Politico and the Washington Business Journal wage. Oh, yeah, I forgot about Newsweek. Okay, and then and then it said Feinberg was born in Washington DC in DC and then graduated in two thousand one along with Jerome is Ashley Parker? Currently White House correspondent for the Washington Post. That's where I screwed up. Well, yeah that that part is that part is true, Well, it's kind of odd that you ended up growing up, you know in you know in the DC area and now and you still live there and it's it's kind of birth. I mean you it's funny people back when I used to go out and see people in the before times people used to remark that I was kind of a unicorn because very few people from Jersey seemed to stay in DC. I know. Well, I have a lot of guests who were in the DC area. I have Glen Kirchner. I don't know. I don't know if you know Glenn. I know I know God I know Glenn. Yeah, he comes on a lot and I have Cheri Jacobus on a lot. She's in the DC area as well. But at the way let's get into this impeachment trial home. I mean, well first as a journalist, how hard was it for you to report on Donald Trump, when all he did was say how the media was fakenews anything against him was fake. How hard was that for you? I mean not particularly difficult. I just show up and do my job the people like cover if they don't like the coverage they should not do stupid things. I mean, sorry. I'm just I'm looking down trying to adjust my Adjust my lights here. So I'm not sure if that's going to make any difference. Sorry about that. All right, well good enough for government work. I suppose wage. But yeah, you know, the thing about thing about covering politicians is they're always going to complain about the coverage either it's, you know, not glowing enough for its two- or it's just not to their liking and if they don't like that then they really shouldn't get a politics because they're going to get written about presidents never liked their coverage Obama didn't neither the bushes. Did Reagan didn't Clinton really didn't for obvious reasons, but they but they live with it. And for whatever reason Donald Trump never quite got wage. To the fact that his relationship with the DC press was not going to be the kind of weird fawning relationship. He had with the New York tabloids. It's it's not the same game. Yeah. Yeah, I know and and it's remarkable. But like I've had a lot of people who you know who have written books about this, but he he's pretty much follow the authoritarian Playbook. I mean, you know, I mean cuz that's what Hitler did that's what garbles did they tore down the media? That's what Putin has done with which we've all seen with navalny mean. I mean, this is what they do. This is what dictators do, you know, tear down the media make people question what's being a report and that's why I thought it might have been harder for girls like you Well, I mean, it's it's not easy. The the death threats are are no fun. But I mean someone's gotta do it. If not, you don't offer a former president once said you won't have a country if no one is reporting the news. Yeah, and and and it's hard but God, I mean it it is just amazing that and now we see what's going on with the impeachment. I mean, he essentially I mean, you know, how do you think this is going to take you out with the impeachment? Do you think the they're going to convict him? What do you think the Republicans are just going to tow the party line? You know, I've learned to never make predictions but based on the last vote that they had was 5545. It's not likely that they're going to be the 67 votes needed to convict but I don't think that the Democrats are going into this thinking that they're going to get sixty seven votes off. I think that they're making the case directly to the American people that the president was unfit and that he violated his oath of office by inciting a riot that took almost got the vice president and other members of Congress killed. Yeah. Yeah. I'm getting I wanted to ask you have you received death threats? Yeah, and and not all of them are from my family. But what happens like you just like like so many emails you and like most of them. I'm the most of the time I mean, you can ignore them and then there are a couple that I'll forward to police or other law enforcement. But usually it's just people just sending a poorly worded grammatically incorrect vague threats and they don't even live in the area so you can't really let them get back to you. Yeah, it's Gotta Be I mean so you don't yeah, cuz I've never actually received a death threat although I have been punched. Would you like to would you like to receive one? No, okay. No. No. No, I know a guy no, no and believe me. I know, you know I have I was one of the producers for a little while of the gaudy film and I've had plenty of dentists with John Gotti Jr. And and no no no, I don't want I don't want to get you know, I don't want to be involved in any of that. But yes, so you just think this is going to be just a do you think they're going to declare them? It's unconstitutional to know they don't they don't they don't have the votes. There were 55 to go on with the trial last time and they'll get at least fifty five am today. I don't know if you were watching earlier Jamie Raskin who's actually my congressman was opening with the arguments that it is constitutional and I think right now the president's lawyers are talking. My TV is behind me. So I don't have any way of of knowing what's going on there. But I suspect that at the end of the day you're going to have at least fifty five votes to continue and who knows maybe more. Yes, it all comes down to Mitch McConnell, doesn't it because a Mitch McConnell If the evidence is so overpowering because the Democrats cuz you know, I'm good friends with well. I'm not good friends, but David cicilline has been on my show a bunch of times and he's one of the guys that that Drew up the articles of impeachment. He's a great congressman from Rhode Island. But anyway, you know, I think if Mitch because the Democrats they have a lot of evidence that has not been seen yet..

"Charge of the capital and have an insurrection. That's what country first with one's all about is just going back to saying Here's what conservative principles aren't I agree? I mean it Z. I will sit here and defend conservative principles. But it's hard to have seen an insurrection three weeks ago to say that's no big deal and then the lecture Democrats on something. We've lost our moral authority and we need to regain. It is a party if you had the opportunity of a vote to Eve EQT Marjorie Taylor Greene from Congress. Would you vote to a victor? I'd certainly voter off committee in terms of fiction. I'm not sure because kind of in the middle. I think a district has every right to put who they want there. But we have every right to take a stand and say You don't get a committee and we definitely need to do that. And if you could talk to a Senate Republican right now thinks former President Trump's behavior was terrible. He were in office. They might vote to convict, but they don't now what would be your case, too. That group of those group to senators who are open to punishment. But right now I want to talk themselves out of it with a process argument. Yeah, see, that's the thing is everybody that votes and uses process I get it. It gives you a free way out. But this is a red line in American history and 10 of us. I wish it was more about 10 of us in the House took the tough vote. Because we know history is going to ring with what happened and record that what we can't say Chuck is in the last two months of a president. You can do whatever you want, including incite a mob to insurrection because it's just too late in the process to convict you. I think it is important to convict the send a message and to say that people like Donald Trump could never hold that office again and re establish from a Republican perspective on optimistic, hopeful future that quite honestly has been missing.

Thanks for coming on and sharing your views with us. You bet when we come back are we fighting the pandemic? The right way, Panelist Thanks. On C SPAN RADIO. We're listening to NBC's Meet the press. You're listening to our programming lineup from Sunday on C SPAN. Radio WCS PFM Washington Welcome back. The panel is joining us. Eddie Glaude Jr of Princeton University. Amy Walter, national editor at the Cook Political Report, Al Cardenas, co founder and professor of the Institute of Politics at Florida State University, and Ashley Parker, the White House bureau chief for the Washington Post. Actually, I want to start With the pandemic. Um, both first on the vaccine issue itself. Then we'll move to cope in relief. But you heard Doctor also home there. We've got a lot of epidemiologists arguing that they need to call an audible of vaccine distribution. How ready is this Biden team to do something like that? Well, they're still trying to get their hands around the magnitude of the crisis they inherited. But in talking to them, you know their view is that they We need to follow as Dr Esther Home said, Actually, what they're scientists are recommending, which is the two dose vaccine regimen for Fizer, Madonna that recommend that, but they also believe sort of that they can do both. Simultaneously. They are no longer holding back vaccines beyond 2 to 3 days sort of surplus. The stockpile, as we originally conceived of it does not exist because they believe that they can increase distribution and production to the point where they can Send out all of those vaccines and still have enough for people to get their second doses, so they've already increased it by, you know, 16% that said, these are big promises, and we're going to have to see if they need them. As of now, they've been able to give the governor is sort of the confidence that they know the supply they're going to get for three weeks. That is an improvement. But the governors want to see much more in order to be able to really plan where they send those vaccines and how they get them into people's arms. You know, Amy, this is I think a real dilemma for this administration because at the end of the day, whatever decision they make isn't going to be a perfect decision right. There is going to be ways to criticize whether they stick to their protocol. Whether they delay a second dose, however, you look at it. There's going to be some criticism here, which may may make them taking an action may paralyze them. Do you think they'll be paralyzed? Do you think they'll they'll be aggressive? Well, I don't know, Chuck. I mean, I think the thing about having a crisis right in front of you is especially one that has been with us for over a year. It does tend to get you to move now. Maybe it's the wrong decision that you make, but it doesn't It does inspired actually. Make that decision. Look, I think by the time we get to the end of the summer, Americans are going to have a pretty good sense about how trusting they are in this government and this new administration to make this actually work, and the president has actually said himself. He expects that by the end of the summer, we're gonna have 300 million doses that have been sent down. All of us who are parents are gonna be looking forward to a false school year. We're going to be looking forward to summer time and having summer vacations. I think that's the point at which Americans say Okay. Okay, give you there lived up to it, or we're pretty disappointed that that might be a fair barometer there. Alan Eddie. I want to talk about this issue of the issue of trying to do Go it alone versus bipartisanship. What will be remembered a year from now, Al. If they do, go it alone that they got the bill passed or that they didn't do it in a bipartisan manner. Well, the what's gonna be looked at next year's is have we achieved our goals. Have we lowered the percentage of deaths have we lowered the percentage of people who contract covert from being hospitalized? Have we improved our treatments? That's what I think will be judged more than anything else..

I don't understand why Chuck Schumer decided to go on with impeachment now next week. I think it would have been wiser to do it 30 days from now. On work on trying to develop a consensus. I agree without stand, senator say, should have been invited to a White House by now, as well as the four leaders of the Congress. If you want to talk about bipartisanship, you gotta begin a dialogue on day one. So I think the White House is a little remiss in doing that. I think they're kind of pushed the gun to the Republicans head about bipartisanship. People are gonna have a hard time doing both, you know, voting on impeachment and voting on bipartisanship. Have simultaneously Eddie. I don't want to presume which which side of this argument you're on. But basically a similar question. Ah, year from now, are they going to look back and regret? Not pursuing a bipartisan strategy because we're 11 days in and we're moving in another direction, or is it really about results at the end of the day? Eddie,.

Joe Biden will be sleeping in the same bed as his wife. I know that's really weird for some marriages, but Joe Biden will be doing that. They're what they do is they move out all the mattresses. They don't just clean the sheets. They move out all the mattresses and they They bring everything out there and bring a lot of stuff in there knew now they don't do what Melania Trump requested foreign half years ago, and that is changed the toilets and everything because she didn't want to sit on the same seats that Michelle Obama set on. They're not doing that. But they are doing the normal stuff, new beds and all that other stuff. So so that is in the process that will be in the process of moving forward.

This will take me a few minutes to get get through this, So let's try to get through this together and let's try to have some fun with this. What is Donald Trump accomplished? In the last four years. Well, here we go. Ladies and gentlemen, let's start with three government shutdowns. One lasted 34 days, the longest in history, by the way, two articles of impeachment first president that's ever happened to to request for foreign interference in the 2000 and 20 election. Yes, he did do that 96 official campaign rallies in 12 Tele rallies. He's done that as well. One camera operator was assaulted at a Trump rally. I thought I would have thought I would bring that up as well. 2.4 trillion increase in the federal deficit. People don't want to talk about that He did take a direct look at an eclipse. He did do that as well. Four chiefs of staff, he said. Four different chiefs of staff, he's had four different press secretaries, the most of any first term president. Six different communication directors interesting as well. 281 former lobbyist working in the administration, that's somewhat high 20 out of 23 cabinet members who are millionaires, including two sent to millionaires and one billionaire talk about draining the swamp. He's had eight associates convicted, pleaded guilty or indicted. He's had 8 601 laws enacted. He's had that done as well but least of any first term president in the last half century thought I would mark that down as 185 executive orders he's had as well. 130 Obama era regulations have been rolled back. Some people might like that, too. 122 judges have been appointed in his one term presidency as well. So again, I'm naming some things that something about. Here's something interesting 279 days playing golf at a cost of approximately $142 million. But, hey, thank God he doesn't get that $400,000 a year $100,000 increase in Mar a Lago initiation fees since he became president he's had over 500 visits to Trump Properties as president. At least 1.1 million taxpayer funds paid to Trump then use that's interesting. He did have one failed election in Integrity Commission. He did have that as well. That met twice and made zero recommendations. I thought I would add that in their 11 administration officials using personal email for communications. I'm gonna keep rolling here. Ladies and gentlemen, it's a long list of things that I have to read off here. So there's more almost over 19,000 tweets, including 22,000 Retweets he's had 323 deleted. Tweets 323. That's a lot 16 plus tweet storms. He's had that as well in his presidency. 845 tweets about fake news. He mentions fake news all the time. 50 tweets about the enemy of the people. 51 Retweet calling a woman a skank. That was an interesting one to emojis. Is that what you call them featured in an official presidential statement, two of them He had one public spat with the teenager. If you recall if you remember that 10 women have referred he's referred to as nasty, including Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Mary Trump, Hillary Clinton reporter Ashley Parker reporter April Ryan Meghan Markle. On more. He's got more than 185 compliments, though. For Kim Jong Eun, seven references to himself as a stable genius. He had one pandemic response team disbanded over 200,000 U. S deaths You know, way back when and now it's over. 4000 from Corona viruses, well, 400,000 deaths from Corona Virus six boasts about Ratings for his coronavirus brief. He's more than 50 promotions of To win. Yes, He did say that over 1200 average paid by US household in 2020 for Trump's Trade Wars. One manufacturing recession, the first since the great recession by the way, I thought I would have that in there over 236 billion in banking profits in 2000 and 18. That's the highest in history. The second highest was back in 2019. He had a laugh from the U. N. If you remember the speech, he made it everybody was laughing out of. That was certainly a very interesting moment for the United States of America. One hurricane map was altered with Sharpie. If you remember that controversy, that whole thing went down more than 150. Hamburgers served in one White House dinner, even though in a tweet, he said there were over 1000 hamburgers served. That was a lie. One of many at least 11 actions discriminating against transgender Americans. He's certainly done that over 5.4 million spent on a military parade in D. C one former campaign share accused of working with a Russian agent. One arranged trip to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Definitely not for a series of mini strokes, though. I mean, he certainly wrote that down on Twitter over 1500, Mass. Shootings have happened in the US since he took office. Over 2700 Children under 11 were killed or injured by gun violence. That is a horrible stat. Zero federal gun laws have been signed since Donald Trump has been president over 1.7 million Southwest border. Apprehensions have taken place in at least 2600 migrant Children had been separated from their parents. Hey, did make one joke, though about shooting migrants crossing the border. If you recall he did make that joke. That wasn't a good joke. 11% drop in legal immigration. So that's not good. 18,000 cap on refugees admitted to the U. S as well. Since Donald Trump took office and 84% drop from the fiscal year 2000 and 17 1 fake national emergency was declared, by the way to build a border wall. If you recall he did do that. That was a fake emergency. I think by many people almost done here $13 billion diverted from military funds to pay for the border wall 18.4 billion in total federal funding for that border wall that he said he was gonna build memory said Mexico was gonna pay for He's got $0 from Mexico to pay for Wall, All right, so I could go on And on here, there's a lot there's a there's a few more actually, 100. Environmental regulations have been rolled back. Not too good for people that care about the environment over 34 million acres of public lands have been removed from protection. One public spat with the Christian magazine Christianity today, by the way, if you recall on at CPAC in 2019 Did a two hour speech. The longest campaign speech. The same night he got impeached was just over two hours. Hey, did have a very dangerous ramp that he walked down. And if you recall Hey, talked about it for 14 minutes in one speech, actually believe that or not, so those are just a few of the highlights of Donald Trump's tenure. As president and again this is the last 24 hours of his administration that I'm just I'm just so sad. So J D Now is your chance to rebut. What I mean, rebut, right..

"Your voices heard today We will see whether Republicans stand strong for integrity of our elections. But whether or not they stand strong for a country And, of course, Trump's bases. Media never plays this part of his insurrection. Speech way fight like hell. And if you don't fight like Hell, you're not gonna have a country anymore. Are exciting adventures and boldest endeavors have not yet begun. We're going to try and give them the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country because you'll never take back our country with weakness. Now the most generous interpretation you can make of that is conflicting messages, which is stupid because in his peacefully and patriotic drivel, he also repeated the big lie that led to these domestic terrorists going to Washington in the first place. Namely, that Thistle this election was devoid of integrity. In other words, he really won And therefore the certification that was about to take place in the capital must be stopped. But here's the kicker. Law enforcement had advanced warning that this was not going to be a peaceful process. Donald Trump has access to more information, in fact, the most sensitive information available in this country than anyone else. Hard to believe he didn't know what was being planned. In fact, I would bet the farm he did. And it's interesting that he told his mob. He'd go to the capital with them and then didn't Could. The intelligence he received in the days and or weeks prior to last Wednesday be the reason he didn't accompany them. I'd say it's a good possibility. Secondly, Donald Trump is desperate to remain in power Desperate, so let's say his domestic terrorists had marched out of the capital and had done nothing. But as Trump put it, let their voices be heard peacefully and patriotic. Lee They all sat down on the Capitol steps, legs crossed, arms joined and perhaps even began to sing. You tell me how that would have helped Donald Trump steal this election and remain in office, huh? First of all the legislators wouldn't have even heard them. Secondly, that's not what they showed up for. Thirdly, I don't think a version of kun by even one is melodic is that one would change the result. But then again, I don't know the Constitution as well as you trump bumpers, who are just fine and dandy with trump defecating on the Constitution and destroying our democracy. Tell you what, geniuses give your pocket constitution A quick read and let me know if you find a coon by Ah Klaus William. The bottom line is simple. People don't show up in body armor and bulletproof vest to protest peacefully. That's not what they came for. That's not why Trump invited him told him it be wild. Told him to fight like hell. It wouldn't have a country left. He didn't do all that. For Coon, by, uh Trump telling them Wednesday to peacefully and patriotic Lee let their voices be heard. That's like a mob boss telling one of his henchman to make sure Louis takes a swim. He doesn't have to say with cement shoes on that's understood. But you know what trumps state One Propaganda ministry would tell its brain dead audience that they would stupidly believe Trump didn't order Louis killed. He just told his aides to take Louis to the beach and heaven enjoy a nice swim. Just like the time Trump didn't order them to desecrate the capital. He just told them to let their voices be heard peacefully Patriotic Lee and come by optically. Garbage. We cannot count the number of times Trump has spoken like a mob bust the past four years. He didn't have to stay stormed the capital anymore than a Bob Bus has to say cement shoes. Let's be real. Trump didn't want them to protest peacefully. He wanted them to overthrow a democratically held election, just like he himself has been trying to do literally for weeks. And his domestic terrorists knew that and they reacted in the exact manner Trump not only knew they would but in the exact manner he wanted and needed them to react. Which brings us to a story in the Washington Post earlier this weekend. Yeah, I'm well aware of the fact that Trump numbers will automatically and summarily dismiss it because they've been brainwashed into believing everything other than Fox Noise is either liberal media or fake news. I can't help that I present a real world show predicated on facts and truth, not the dishonest ramblings of Trump's media who are paid to lie to you, and lying is their primary business model. You're either Welcome to participate or remain willfully ignorant your choice. This Real world Story was written by Ashley Parker Philip Parker, both Pulitzer Prize winners. And yes, in the real world, Pulitzers are a big deal. Interestingly, no Fox reporter has ever won one. And there's a reason for that. Fox doesn't have reporters just repeaters. Of either state issued propaganda or propaganda they fabricate for the state. They're a team they were contending. Whoever lies first. The other repeats see how that works. Headline for the story, read, quote. Six hours of paralysis inside Trump's failure to react after a mob stormed the capital and quote now that headline might be a little confusing. The use of the word paralysis suggests the Trump froze and didn't know what to do. That would be letting him off the hook, as you will hear from Ashley Parker herself. And this is a long clip, but I'm ordering you to take Louis for a swim dig. So we decided to focus in on a pivotal six hours during the attack Wednesday, basically from just before 2 P.m. on the capital was first reached just around 8 P.m. when the capital is finally secured and focusing on how the president was spending his time on day. One thing we learned in our reporting was that you had all of these people frantically trying to go. Through to the president trying to get through to the White House. You have Senator Lindsey Graham calling a bank a cell phone. You have Kevin McCarthy getting trump and finding him distracted and calling Jared Kushner, his son in law and begging Jared, who had just returned from a trip to the Middle East to get over to the White House and try to help you have Kellyanne Conway. It was very close to the president but no longer government getting a call Deepti Mayor's office because they need help in getting the administration to call up the National Guard. And calling a close personal aide of the president to relay that message. And Donald Trump is we wrote he was watching this all on live television, and he was paralyzed. But I think it is important to note that he was willfully paralyzed. He was fully aware of the situation and in some ways we were told, especially initially, hey, was watching it somewhat gleefully. He liked what he was seeing. He was sort of in odd and proudly so of the fact that his supporters were fighting. Him on his behalf. He likes that he liked that This was delaying the electoral certification of Joe Biden and Kamila Harris. There you have it. He liked That his mob was attacking our capital and delaying the certification of the fact he lost the election. But, yeah, he just wanted his domestic terrorist to take Louis to the beach first swim right? So what we just heard was Parker and Rocker focused on the six hour timeframe from 2 P.m. when the capital was breached to 8 p.m. when some sense semblance of order was restored. People were frantically trying to get through to trump on his cell. Trump wouldn't answer Kevin McCarthy, calling Jared Kushner begging him to go to the White House until Trump to do something. They even called one of Trump's former designated liars, Kellyanne con artist asking her if she could do something, if she could get through to this orange flub, and she doesn't even work for him anymore. The D. C mayor's office colleague to have Trump send in the National Guard. And what was Trump doing through all of this while the capital was being stormed, while all these frantic phone calls were coming in from his own people. Begging for help. He sat there on his global in lard ass and watched the whole thing unfold on television. And I told you last Saturday, the Republican Senator Ben Sasse, said Trump wasn't just watching what was going on. He was quote, excited and delighted and quote with what he was seen. And was confused why others weren't excited. National Parker just were from that as well. His paralysis stem not from concern that the seat of the world's greatest democracy was being attacked, but rather from delight that it was Which isn't surprising is all authoritarians. A dictator wannabes hate democracy. But this is all you need to know about the sleazy orange trade of the government. He's supposed to be leading is attacked and he likes it. And if you still defend this treasonous troll God, your parents failed or you ignored everything. They tried to teach.

Martin Baron is a fanatical leftist. He ruin the Boston Globe. Then he ruined Washington Post. What their reporters do, and they do this at the New York Times They write the story before they even cover it. Story is already written. This is the story I want to see. So the story that they wrote yesterday was Donald Trump. Here's the headline. Inside Trump's failure to act after a mob stormed the capital. That's the headlock. That story was already written. Okay. Trump didn't care Trump this trump that trump this. Let me prove it to you. If you read this story is all anonymous sources 100%. Anonymous sources. Nobody on the record. Number one quote. One close. Trump advisor said Trump was hard to reach because he was watching live TV. Who was happy Can you give us any kind of a semblance of that? One close. Trump advisor. No Okay, number 21 close adviser said Trump was busy enjoying the spectacle. So now they got ahold of somebody. Who hates Trump. All right. Who knows? A lot of people hate him. They got somebody. This is what Woodward did in his last book. Number three on official familiar with the discussions set. Press officials began discussing a statement from Trump at 2 P.m.. Adding the most infuriating part. Was how long it took before Trump finally spoke out on official familiar with the discussions. That could be anybody in a bar. Okay for several Republican members of Congress, said they call the White House but couldn't get through. You can't name them. You can't name several. You can't name one Punch of crap. All right, finally, according to one person familiar with the discussions again, a person familiar with the discussions. Trump had not wanted to include the final instruction to state peaceful in his tweet. This is just what they call a hatchet job. And this is what the Washington Post has done for five years. Are they going to do this? Abidin? Come on. Do they do it to Hillary Clinton? No. Did you want to Barack Obama? They would like this to Barack Obama. When I say media is corrupt. This is what I need. The editor said. To these reporters, the three of them Ashley Parker, Josh Gauzy and Philip Rucker, and all three have hatchet did Trump for years. Get me a story that says Trump didn't care about the capital violence. Yes, sir. How it works. FBI says there are gonna be attacks everywhere on Inauguration Day. I would have liked to see the FBI say Hey, we could have some trouble to state capital. In Washington, D C in the national capital. Maybe we'll put the guard out there, but I didn't do that. Didn't have any warning about that. But now another raising all these right wing goons. Gonna come out cause trouble. It'll be heavily armed. Do I believe that? No. We'll say. Will say, Remember the director of the FBI despises Donald Trump, because Trump ran him down. Oh, Sheldon White House. What were the parents thinking? When baby Sheldon came into the world Sheldon White House he's a senator. He's attacking, viciously attacking Senators Cruise and Holly. Okay? He wants. Their expulsion from the Senate. Want to expel Cruise and Holly Crewson, Texas Holly from misery because Cruz and Holly believe There was corruption in the election. So, Sheldon. Who doesn't Care at all. Whether there was corruption in the elections never asked for any kind of clarification or investigation. What's the throw? Cruise and Holly out now, I don't know. Holly. And Cruz and I not On good terms. I don't know why. Maybe because I didn't use him very much because I knew what he was going to say. And Don't do that. But anyway, neither here nor there. I'm not buddies with Holly. We don't know or cruise, but this is despicable. Despicable. Hey, Sheldon, this is anti Democratic. You calling for them to be expelled because they had an opinion on the election. Malia's, You know, uh, got his book pulled by Simon and Schuster. And I'm interested to see if Holly's gonna gonna sue. Says he is We called his office. Did you file when I'm gonna file They didn't return our call, which was not smart, they should return the call. Social media backlash. All right, so Twitter and Facebook and Amazon and all now our century They're all sensory. You all know that huge story, right?

Now that they're taking over the world, and they want to destroy freedoms and liberties. Everywhere they may find them. There is Kind of an interesting story out here know that the president is angry with Rudy Giuliani and is threatening not to pay him be cut $20,000 a day, plus travel expenses and other expenses. Um And, um, The Washington Post has a crooked upside down piece on it. Trump is isolated and angry at AIDS for failing to defend him as he is impeached again. Phil Brucker and Josh Dossier and Ashley Parker, three Hardcore Democrats typing on behalf of their party when Donald Trump on Wednesday became the first president ever impeached twice. He did so as a leader, increasingly isolated, Solan and vengeful. You know the problem with these hacks as they've been saying the same thing for forever and ever You can't believe a damn thing that they say because you know, they lie all the time for political reasons. Of course. No. Trump has been exceptionally furious with vice President Pence. That's you know, not something that is righteous. I think his relationship with lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani, one of his most steadfast defenders, is also fracturing. According to people with knowledge of the dynamics between the men. They have people that speak to them off the record, you know for deep background only. Not for attribution with deep knowledge they have deep knowledge of the dynamics between the men. Of course they did. But any case President Trump has instructed aides not to pay Rudolph Giuliani's legal fees. Two, officials said. And if he can't believe to officials who can you believe and demanded that he personally approve any reimbursements for the expenses Giuliani incurred while traveling. On the president's behalf. Now the thing is, The Washington Post writes this stuff. But there's another legitimate news organization that is writing the same thing that the president is upset. With Rudy Giuliani and refusing to pay his legal fees because he feels that Rudy Giuliani didn't give him good legal advice and has not served his interests well. And I would have to say that that is true. I would agree with that. I would also agree that Lin Wood has not served the president's interests well at all, hey, has not served his interest. Well, he said. Some things that are like what? What did he just say? And what they're murdering people at the Democrats are killing their assassinating people out there over the Who? Who? Oh, no. I'll have to tell you later. No, I don't. I don't think so. And I'm also I've got to say I was having a discussion with a friend yesterday over beers with Randy, who actually runs our Chris Plante store. We're having beers out on the patio. The sun was on us. Then it got cold. We had belief, but but we had a couple beers on. Dad had a nice time. And one of the things we discussed is Where's that? Kraken? Where's that crack him? Because I'm still waiting for the cracking and I haven't seen the crack and I've seen evidence. I've seen affidavits. I've seen some good legal work, but they have not won the day with the courts and convincing courts that and it's not like you can't blame every court in every judge and every in a state level on a federal level of the Supreme Court. The lawyers actually play a role in this and I do not think that the president's legal team Have served his interests. Very well. I would I would agree with that. Do you concur? I concur, Doctor. I I concur. Andre If the president is rooted Julianna Mama fan of Rudy Giuliani, but, um the Rudy Giuliani is not. He's not release the crackin. It is not produced the goods. That's ah thing. Hmm. Now there is a the Newsweek magazine has a has the story on this Delaware. Here's the headline Newsweek magazine. Pro Trump attorney Linwood, not of quote, sufficient character and quote always gotta look out for those very fragmentary quotes to practice law decides. Judge A Delaware Superior Court judge slammed pro Trump Attorney Lin Wood in a Monday decision. Revoking Woods right to represent at X Trump aide Carter Page in a defamation lawsuit stemming from the Mueller investigation, the conduct of Mr Wood albeit not in my jurisdiction. Thanks. Judge Must be a Democrat. Exhibited a tox is toxic slew of mendacity, pra verification and surprising incompetence. Judge Craig Cars, minutes. Kirsten it's It's not a good name. KR KR s and I t Z Cars, Knits cars Nix. Thanks, Judge. And you want to ensure that the practicing before me, the lawyers practice me form. You have sufficient character and conduct themselves with sufficient stability, stability and truthfulness. I can't talk, particularly when out of State Council is selected would is based in Georgia, noting Woods involvement the Trump campaign's unsuccessful efforts to challenge the results of the 2020 presidential election. The judge wrote that he became concerned after reviewing the decision made in lawsuits would filed in Georgia and Wisconsin courts. He noted that the case had Georgia was textbook frivolous litigation. Now I do have to say the president's lawyers have not served his interest. Well, that is a that is the statement effect, no doubt about it. And Rudy Giuliani among them, and I'm again. I'm already fan. But but And releasing the cracking, Um Where is that crack and I'm still looking for the crack and to be released for a big, scary things with cracking. Mm and Sydney, Paul. I had a great deal of faith in Sydney Pulp and I've got to say she's she's let me them She has disappointed me. Was expecting better. I was expecting good, tight cases. Fax boom.
