Ginni Thomas Texts Released While Husband Clarence in Hospital
"You're not going to convince probably 60% of Americans may be 70. That every vote was legitimately counted in November of 2020. So Ginny Thomas is not some lunatic fringe QAnon activist, but that's how they want to portray her because they did a big bombshell this week. A big, big reporting. Here's Bret baier over on Fox News with the reporting of The Washington Post story. That Bob Woodward of Watergate fame himself, Bob Woodward went to print yesterday and that's very important that you remember the timing of this leaked story. The text messages that Mark Meadows turned over to the January 6th witch hunt committee led by Liz Cheney and Adam kinzinger on the Republican side. Here's Brett Baer's reporting on this yesterday. Virginia Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice clarence Thomas, repeatedly pressed then White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to pursue efforts to overturn the 2020 election. That is according to text messages obtained by The Washington Post, came out tonight. The messages reveal a pipeline between Thomas and president Trump's top aide during a period when Trump the president at the time and his allies were vowing to go to the Supreme Court to negate the election results. The Washington Post is saying those text messages are among more than 2300 Meadows provided to the House select committee investigating the capitol riot on January 6th, justice Thomas, who is currently hospitalized, has not responded obviously to The Washington Post request for comment neither has his wife. Well, yeah, I'm sure he hasn't responded because he's in the hospital being treated for an undisclosed illness. He's been there nearly a week or more, sounds serious. Ginny Thomas is undoubtedly by her husband's side. Praying for his recovery. So she's a little busy, too.
Why Did Bob Woodward Pick THIS WEEK to Release Ginni Thomas' Texts?
"And when you wonder if you're on that right side of the ideological spectrum, let me share with you a couple prominent examples of something making news right now. Bob Woodward of The Washington Post decided this week, it was good timing to write a story about text messages that the wife of ailing Supreme Court Justice clarence Thomas apparently wrote to Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows. Now, these text messages were turned over by Mark Meadows to the January 6th committee at the end of last year, but this was the week they decided to run with the bombshell, the Ginny Thomas was urging Mark Meadows to fight back against to urging Trump to fight back against the outcome of the election. The only thing about clarence Thomas this week, have you read about him? You know where he is? He's in the hospital, and as I understand it, it's going on a week. And anybody who knows anything about hospitals, if you're in the hospital a week, that ain't a hangnail. I don't know what's wrong with him, apparently he's got a type of infection of some kind. It's unspecified, but he sounds like he's pretty sick. Think his wife is concerned about his about her husband right now? Think her wife is frantic? I think his wife is worried, stressed, but now she's got this to deal with because that's the point. It's how cruel they are. That's how vicious and mean spirited and cruel the Adam kinzinger is in the Liz Cheney's and the bob woodwards of the world are.

"bob woodward" Discussed on Channel 33
"Seen seen seen there's none of the usual connective journalistic tissue Where you sort of go back and explain like some context about donald trump or some context about. Let's say why the vice president of the united states presides over the counting of electoral votes like normally do normally authors go seen seen seen boom section break. Plant your foot and say you know. The founding fathers would have hardly recognize what mike pence was expected to do on january. Six right and then have a long kind of discursive section and then go back to the scene partly because they don't have as much material as woodward does and also probably because that helps sort of center the reader on what the hell is going on and give them a bit of history and everything that yeah. There is none of that. In bob ward which books it is just powerful person doing this powerful person doing this powerful person doing this right. It's an accumulation of that. I guess the inclusion or exclusion of information probably helped shape the narrative to some extent. But it's not there's no flourish to it. Yeah it's just. It reads like commercial fiction and in fact it is in wake commercial nonfiction at a high level. Like you're reading a paperback airport novel. Okay yeah that makes sense. That's the that's the feel of it like a thing happened and then another thing happened and then another thing happened. You're just like whoa. Whoa whoa again. With none of that kind of just stopping and pausing and letting the reader kind of be like okay. I'm now. I'm learning something about the constitutional. Whatever it is. It's really interesting. I will say though that the set piece about the events of january sixth of this year and the sacking of the us capital which is about halfway through. The book is pretty incredible fact. It's incredible full stop. What of. It is about mike pence and what he was doing on that day and his whole sort of you know all the days before where he's trying to talk to trump and trump is trying to get him basically to help him steal the election. That whole section of the book is incredible and it really rewards the woodward method of this is what a powerful person was doing. And this is what powerful person was doing what a powerful person was doing. Because you wanna know what. All these people were doing of course on january It's awesome again woodward's not going to be somebody who's going to be talking about the proud boys or something like that. He's going to be going right to the people who are running the government right. It is a new cycle. As i said david they're going to be on the late show Tomorrow bow already on the interview circuit. A whole bunch of interviews also wanted to give you a few tastes of the bob woodward literary style because in addition to not just having connective tissue. Bob woodward is not an has never been interested in doing wrong. Descriptions of people you know certain authors would stop and be like. I'm just going to have a whole paragraph here about when mitch mcconnell looks like right or what. It sounds like to be mitch. Mcconnell's present. how does he talk. What is his office. Look like what does he do. People walk through the door. A little literary flourish. Bob woodward is totally disinterested in that but he is sometimes compelled to include like three or four words about the someone looks so paul ryan for instance former speaker of the house. Yeah very prominent figure that everybody knows listen to the way he is described when he first appears in the book. Ryan comma a tall dark-haired mid-westerner now. Is it really going to help us to understand something about paul ryan to tell us that. He has a dark-haired midwesterner. Okay no absolutely not accept. Well you can keep going but this is based on very little information. It being almost entirely like dialogue driven scenes of of the things happening in descriptions like tall dark-haired midwesterner makes it sound like reading a movie script instead of a nonfiction book. It really does read that way a lot of the time. It doesn't even this. I don't know if this is going to be a movie or not but it is written with that sense like a shooting script as much as a conventional nonfiction book when you only have like one or two adjectives to describe every person though sometimes. Those adjectives are kind of funny or kind of set you of seemingly just a little pointed i want you to listen to the description of mike pompeo former secretary of state when he first appears in the book gay comma heavy and gregarious comma with little tolerance for.

"And david shoemaker. All the ringer here along with producer lonnie rinaldo. It's a big week in publishing david. Bob woodward is releasing a new cycle. I mean i'm sorry new book a new book. It's very easy to get confused when it comes to bob win. The new book written with his washington post teammate. Robert costa is peril peril No subtitle remember the press box rule of publishing the surest sign. You're a big deal in book world is if you're nonfiction books. Don't come with subtitles right. You don't have to explain just now knowing were that's it. That's enticements necessary. Now i mean there. There will be supplementary copy available online for anyone that needs it but as long as you got a couple you know. Presidents faces on their in bob. Woodward's name robert costa to boot. I think you kind of get the point across you. Get the point across now. I've been reading peril inbetween wedding speeches all weekend and on the plane. Back here to la. I got a couple notes for you about the book itself. But i i'd like to say a little bit about the woodward method of interviewing Please i was fortunate enough to speak with someone who participated in one of the interviews for apparel who had some notes about the whole experience first of all. The interview was at bob woodward's house in georgetown in washington. Dc where dinner was served on the one hand a far cry from cub reporter woodward knocking on people's doors and all the president's men. Yeah absolutely see the pull of that right for sure. Making powerful people feel ease is it a townhouse is that is that what we officially call the nice residences in dc townhouses. I believe that's correct because they're brown stones in new york but the but it's a different thing slightly different thing but down houses sort of also sure there's a bunch of high rises not high. I'm sure there's new builds in dc but it seems like once you get the townhouse you've kind of hit the aspirational peak in washington world right. You're not like sure it's not like new york. Words like there is a fifteen thousand foot pin house being constructed. At any given moment you might move into someday. It's the townhouses the goal. That's the gold standard and if you're somebody like woodward come over to my place no one's gonna over here is here was serve some wine you know. Everybody will be comfortable so as i said. Dinner was served in the participants that there was a lot of just casual shooting the shit over the salad course but then when a subject came up that woodward wanted to ask about bore the book itself woodward said something like You know that's something i wanted to ask you about. Would you mind if i take out recorder. None of this attribution. Of course it. Just i just been doing it this way for years now. I found that really funny because every journalist including me has a photo apologetic way of asking the subject if it's okay to turn on a recorder. i do that several times we. I'm sorry would you mind. If i record this for my notes are so i can transcribe it later. You just something you kinda reflectively. Say this is bob woodward bob woodward says yes. It's okay of.

Where Does Gen. Mark Milley Allegedly Conspiring With China Rank in Biden Disasters?
"It's really hard to rank which Biden disaster is the greatest and I mean worse, this disaster of all But I would have to say coddling a joint Chiefs of staff chairman who now in a new book. Bob Woodward book is alleged. To have basically committed treason in the book. Bye. Conspiring with the Chinese Communist Party. To defend a straight. Donald Trump is the commander in chief. I don't know where that ranks up there. Jim 12 and three It's I don't know It's tough. It It's got to be one Jim say he's got to be what? I don't. I don't I don't know. I'm having to believe in our people behind. No Southern border. Economy exploding vaccine mandates. This is close. If there is a 1234 and five they're only said separated by decimal points. Folks. The story is about as deeply disturbing as I've ever heard. And here's an irony. I didn't mention during the podcast this morning, but I thought if during the break there Remember Stuart Sheller from the Marine Corps member Stuart Sheller. He was, uh, he put out a tape demanding our tape. Excuse me, a video fashion aging myself a video demanding accountability for the disaster. The military disaster in Afghanistan, you know, demanding accountability like a qualified military leader should do. And Stewart Scheller was relieved of his command member. That story about the Marine seems to have exited the headlines because Biden does so much terrible stuff. Um, the headlines evaporate so fast here. But it's It's really odd how he was relieved of command, and they've been targeting him Stewart Scheller, and yet it's alleged that Mark Milley was conspiring with a nuclear powered communist enemy of the United States. And yet the leftist media celebrating I'm No, I'm not kidding. I've got the, uh I've got the audio to prove it.
Accusations of Treason Swirl Around Gen. Mark Milley
"Sean hannity during his monologue last night talked about milly either being he should be absolutely fired and tried for treason. If of course the account of bob woodward and bob costas book is correct. Accusations of treason are now swirling around the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. That would be general mark milley. According to an explosive upcoming book from bob woodward millions accused of conspiring behind the scenes with communist chinese to undermine president trump in the fall of twenty twenty as the washington post details quote in the books account. Millie went so far as to pledge that he would alert his counterpart in the event of the us attack is counterpart being in china. The communist chinese. The book claims that millie had his chinese counterpart quote. Generally you and i have known each other for five years now. And if we're going to attack. I wanna call you ahead of time. It's not going to be a surprise. Okay so what they can attack us. I if this is true general milley would be traded to this country if true he should be fired and tried portrays an immediately given america's enemies heads up before an attack. Well that's the worst possible offense that are member of our military ever commit and there's more according to the same upcoming book and that is the general milley also conspired behind the scenes to neuter the commander in chiefs ability taken duct his constitutional role as commander in chief and conduct military operations. Now this this shouldn't be a right left talking point. I should be able to say to every democrat listening to the show every trumpeter if the chair of the joint chiefs was giving our enemies a heads up in the event of an attack. How is that not treason.
Gen. Mark Milley's Treasonous Calls With China
"You know what's not political. You know what shouldn't be political. The reporting that suggests that the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff reassured the chinese communist parties liberal army general that he would give the communist country a heads up if president trump launched an attack on china in the final months of his presidency. This was done. Apparently in a series of reported phone calls with general milley reassuring china. The we give them a heads up if we were going to attack him now. First of all the idea that trump would have ever considered an attack on. China is beyond preposterous. It's a complete bald-faced brazen effort to continue to make people try to hate trump as my friend mark davis in dallas points out trump hatred erodes the brain. It it it just. It does it. Just it eats at your brain. People who trump turn into irrational kooks kooks sit around and say art and donald trump was going to new china. General milley is a kook if this is true. Now i don't know it's bob woodward and robert kosters reporting in with in secret phone calls. According to bob woodward's book the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff wanted to assure china that we would not strike. He was he was literally committing treason. According to the book again. I would always do that. Caveat according to the book if the book is true if the book is correct you got the chairman of the joint chiefs acting like a trader.

Nonsense there was no secret meeting over nuclear procedures or attempt to undermine the president's authority. Here's what we do know. Two days after the capital riot house. Speaker nancy pelosi revealed she called general milley about taking the nuclear football away from president trump to prevent quote an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike pentagon officials pushing back on suggestions in the new woodward and cost a book that general milley put himself in the chain of command. I can report from my own conversations at the time with senior military sources. That during that phone call speaker pelosi was distraught following the events in the capital that day and was screaming demanded that general milley take the nuclear football away from the president. Those privy to the phone call told me at the time that general milley tried to reassure her and pushed back and repeatedly said madam speaker. You know i can't do that. You know milley told pelosi. There are lots of checks in the system to trump from going rogue pelosi then told me he's crazy you know he's crazy and remember. This is like right after the capital thing had happened. So she's you know all worked up he's crazy and what he did. Yesterday is further evidence of his craziness policy added referring to the capitol right. According to the book.

Ah, give me a follow on these social media sites as well, as I said before the break as we wrap this up, get into the home stretch here. The president's own words. Woodward. Is using against him, and I just wish the trump Did not give this access the Woodward because It does. It does give us some credibility here, too? What Woodward writes, and I know that the president knew that what I do like the book's not going to be good and then the president. No. Said fake nose after he'd gotten off the phone with Bob Woodward back in August. And then of course, we're probably going to hear more. But the complication here is It's Trump's own words and own responses and demeanor on crystal clear tape. Crystal clear recordings. I say tape. We don't use tape anymore. But you know what I'm talking about. And As I mentioned before the break that the president Had gotten AH, briefing on what January 28th, and that's important to note. The The president told Bob Woodward that there was nothing more that could have been done. What the president obviously had been briefed on January. 28th and Trump didn't know the dangers but decided to internally Process and strategize knowing that things were not good with this virus, But the president chose to instil to a certain extent, 12 to a large extent. Depending on what the issue is tries to keep. The virus commentary or trying to tamp down and not talk about worst case scenarios or what? Some of the proven Bad things or the realities on the ground. The president has decided to keep emotions in check, even when it comes at the expense off him, responding to or discussing. Actual facts on the ground. And what we know about Corona virus for the president decided to split the decision on this as far as what he internalized and what he externalized. Is that the right decision was that the right move? Let me ask you. This is a good question to ask Was that the right move for the president to internalize what was reality and toe externalize a softer More coddled. In new Beret shin interpretation ofthe Covert 19. Do you think that was the right move for the president? Yes or no? 808 01 89 99 808 01 89 99 So clearly, the briefing of that Trump got on February 28th that hit hard and Trump understudy. There's no doubt about it. That briefing sank in and plans were announced. The band travel from China and I think that Trump did a good job and stopping that the China travel..

"It's all things considered. I'm Sasha Pfeiffer in Cambridge, Massachusetts. And I'm Mary Louise Kelly in Washington. What is a reporter's responsibility to the public to share information? They're learning in real time as they learn it. And how might the calculation change during a public health emergency? Those air. Among the questions swirling around Bob Woodward's new book, in which he documents interviews with President Trump interviews that make plain the president understood the gravity of the Corona virus threat far sooner than he let on that it was quote deadly stuff. That quote is from an interview on February 7th. It has prompted questions over whether the president misled the public about what he knew. Also questions for Bob Woodward over whether he should have shared his reporting sooner. When I sat down with Woodward yesterday, I asked, Did you have a duty to get that information out? I knew at the time and believed he was talking about the virus in China because he had talked to Chinese President Xi the night before. And as you know, at that point in February There was no virus awareness in the United States. You describe in the book, though, that you were surprised to what he was saying. Yes, because it was Oh, Did he get it from President Xi? And so I spent a good deal of time trying to get information. And in fact, the transcript of the Trump she call The night before, because I thought that would Be a clue to what went on. And you know what? You didn't need other sources to know that what the president said to you on February, 7th directly contradicted what he was saying in public in February, But but see he was talking about China as Faras. I understood it. Because there's no virus issue. There were cases here. Yes, but you is, You know, you've got Tony Foschi out there the end of February, saying everyone can do it everything and and not worry. So as far as I'm concerned, it's a China problem. And by March. It's clearly an American problem. And so I'm asking the question. What did the president know? When did they know it? And how did he know it and I worked for 2 2.5 months to find out and it was finally in May when I discovered that there was this meeting January 28th in the Oval Office Top secret intelligence briefing When the president's national security adviser said to him this virus, this will be the biggest national security threat you face in your presidency. But let me let me just stay because I wantto were jumping around in time. And I want to just lay out the timeline because it is important and you have contributed to our understanding of what the president knew him when he knew it. You as you mentioned reported that January, 28, the National Security advisor had told the president, this is going to be the biggest national security threat of your presidency. Was given ahead passion with great passion. So the president has been warranty. February 7th. He does the interview with you where he says this is deadly stuff. I understand. But then, all through February, he kept saying, everything's fine word. Very good shape. I want to fast forward to the march 19th interview that you did with him. The president calls you And he says this Well, I think really, To be honest with your I want you I wanted to. I wanted to always play it down. I still like playing it down. Yes, because I don't want to create a panic. Bob Woodward. Did you understand that exchange as the president? Admitting that he was lying to the American public Now what he said. You know, the English is and he has defended his action. But by March 19th The world knows everyone in the country knows that this is deadly that it goes through the air and what the president said. Well, he was saying some equivalent things not with the depth and certainty. That he did to me, so I'm I'm in a position of trying to find out Aziz. You know, Mary Louise, You always go for what's going on here. What's hidden and what was hidden in secret. Was the January 28th meeting. That's why I opened the book with that meeting. As you know, from your intelligence worth. I got information about that. It's at the top secret president's daily brief out of the Oval Office. You get the urgency here that Americans were dying during this period. I mean understanding that ultimately it's the president who is responsible. But public health here, do you do you see the other side of this? B? They had known earlier house, the other side, the other side being had we known earlier. What the president told you in February. It might have forced all of us, the president and the rest of us to confront the gravity of what we were dealing with. And maybe take prompter action to try to prevent spread. Do you understand is I saw he was talking about China. Down. It Turns out I was wrong is I discovered But that's the world I'm living in in the context is that Call he had with president. She and I spent a lot of time trying to get that I was actually in a room with somebody who had the highly classified Report or transcript on that I was not able to get it. And so I'm in a dead end. But if you really think about it and live in the world I was living in Because I have to be accountable. None of us. None of us knew in February are in March. What we do. What we know now. I asked these questions about the president. I ask the questions about myself. What did I know? When did I know? And how did I know it? I've done this almost for 50 years. And I think I have a public health responsibility like any citizen does. Or maybe a journalist has more of a responsibility and if any point I had thought there's something to tell the American people that they don't know. I would do it so To the charge that some have made that you chose your book over the public's right to know. You would say Absolutely. What? What do you think? You read the book. You see, you see me doing that? Trying to get the book out. You've read the timeline. You've in great detail..

Because I had extensive information that he failed to keep the country safe when he knew an had information. That could keep the country much safer because he failed to tell the truth.

This country or the world into a frenzy we want to show. Show spring in an interview with NPR's Mary Louise Kelley Woodward comes to the conclusion that the president failed to protect the country from the virus. She's here with us now and Mary Louise This is not the first book to paint a picture of a chaotic trump administration having difficulties responding to unexpected crises. What sets it apart? Hey, Audie I mean what? What Bob Woodward say is, this is a window in to the president's mind at Woodward got extraordinary access something like nine hours cumulative of interviews, and often these were interviews that were unfolding in the evening. There were no White House aides around there was nobody to rein in the president's or say you know we're done. That's enough of that line of questioning. So what would was able to to question him at length and over months and try to gauge how the president's understanding was was evolving in on everything from from racial justice to the pandemic, which has been the thing that's made a lot of headline so far to foreign policy. And that part of this book has gotten less play. It is really interesting what some of what Woodward learned about other threats beyond the pandemic facing our country and our national security including one. Let me let you hear this where I asked about a recent threat that was a lot more urgent than many of us realised based on your reporting. How close did we come to war with? North Korea. I. Think. Given North, Korea's a rogue nation they have as I report. Probably, a couple of dozen nuclear weapons well, hidden and concealed. That I it. Scared Secretary of Defense Madness so much that he would sleep in his gym clothes there was a light in his bathroom. Is he if he was in the shower and they detected a North Korean launch, he was worried he might have to. Issue Orders for a nuclear strike yes. Exactly. What but but not just shoot down incoming missile yes. Because what if the first missile was coming toward the United States and the there was a possibility it had a nuclear weapon. President trump and president trump told me this. He authorized Secretary of Defense Mattis on his own to shoot it down. If Kim. saw that he might launch all of his other weapons. I quote mad as say, no one. Has a right to incinerate millions of people but he had to face that he was not worried that trump was going to launch against North Korea. Preemptively, he believed that the problem was Kim Jong on the North Korean leader in the Epilogue, you write about Mattis about secretary of State Rex, Tillerson about director of National Intelligence coach, the trio of original senior the now senior national security team, all of whom in your judgment. Were acting in good faith. Well, intentioned trying to answer a call public service. You'd say to the reader to slow down. Think about this for a moment, the top national security leaders thought the president of the United States was a danger to the country. In your decades reporting on Washington have you ever encountered that? Well, in the case of Nixon the. Congress and the Republican leaders in. Congress decided that Nixon was criminal and should not serve and went to him and told him that it was over and I'm talking but senior national security leaders who served this president coming out and saying not just I don't like him anymore not just. I. Disagreed with this or that policy, but he poses a threat to the security of the country. No..

"And I'm sitting here thinking about Bob Woodward. I think I think the only the only Mr Sterling, the only person his reputation damaged by Bob Woodward book is Bob Woodward. Remember when he somehow got an interview with a comatose William Casey? William Casey was the CIA director for enormous magnets. William Casey was there at the founding of the CIA. William Casey was one of those guys that wild Bill Donovan Who built the C I A back in the day when there were no rules. These guys were among the super Patriots of their day They founded the CIA. They put it together, they constructed it. And Bill Casey was one of the primary founders, along with Wild Bill Donovan ended up being the director of the CIA for Ronald Reagan. And he had had a brain aneurysm or or some such malady was in the hospital. He was in a coma. He was he was more than unconscious. And yet Bob Woodward snuck into his hotel room in his hospital room and got an interview. Bill Casey spoke to Bob Woodward while he was in a coma about Reagan and about Reagan's mental state about Reagan. This and Reagan that About Iran, Contra Reagan was off the beaten path and so forth. And nobody believed it. Nobody believed that William Casey woke up. And gave Bob Woodward a bunch of question and went back into his coma. But that's exactly the story that Woodward put out. That's Woodward's story, and he's sticking with it. So the only book to do damage to anybody in the Woodward Syriza's would would All right. Let me get started on the phone's going to Detroit.

I watch him every day because he was the only thing that kept me home and saying I had family members and friends freaking out around me. I was going to be taking a trip to Florida couldn't do it, because now you're actually going to leave the state dangerous.

Great. There's not quite exactly if there's any group of people that's trying to incite. Any kind of unrest and panic. It's the Democrat Party and these blue state mayors and blue state governors and what they're doing to people who live in their cities. I've got a story in the stack that I have been trying to warn everybody that New York City may be dead because of what they have done to the pricing off commercial real estate. And what and Cuomo is blind to it. Homo hasn't the slightest idea what he's doing. He's out there with is he's unhinged, threatening comments about Trump.

Like, Oh, He's the most transparent president in history, and that's why he did this and I want to just talk about how dumb This really is and how dangerous it is because he's just as loose with the truth and loose with the facts that he's given with.

Are any of you listening, and the damage of this presidency is going to last are beyond Whenever he's removed from office. I agree. I agree. We've got to kick him out. And not only that, and this is another interesting question. We know that there's a lot of damage that will take time to repair. But another question. I'm curious to know the answer to is how much or how long will trumpism survived. With him not in the White House because Trumpism isn't just the Fed. It's a disease that has gotten a hold of people's innards, and I don't think it's just going to disappear even if he does. It was there long before he got there. He is a symptom of it and a catalyst of it, and it will survive when he is removed from office. But maybe just maybe, Now that we've had for years for disastrous years, his presidency will be able to see it. We'll be able to call it out. Just like we have the term Orwellian.

Like fake news and that that he initially we would say that you know it wasn't him of those tapes to quit on foot, you know? Well, it was pretty hard for him to do so. I mean, I don't even know that Even his diehard base wouldn't believe that. I mean, even they know the stature that's attached to Bob Woodward at the Bob Woodward. I mean, Bob Woodward is the guy that took down Richard Nixon. And he did it honestly. So I don't think even his diehard brain dead cult base would believe that one. I don't know. Who knows They believe anything. I know, But you're you're first caller. Marty was dead on it was it's all about, you know, the stock market. You know? The perception that we're doing so well, but we did take a death and then we bounce back again, which was It's good, but I wonder you know how long it could be sustained. Considering how long this is continuing, which is You know, which is really, really sad. Unfortunately. And I'll tell you one of the most perilous times in our history as a nation will come after the election leading up to the next inauguration. But, you know, he said that he didn't want People to panic well didn't paper Nick initially with what they were doing with the store show? No, Come on, you know, and everybody was halted to stay home. Basically, they want they want up being panicky by buying everything and nobody could find, you know. Good that you typically used on a daily basis. Come on, You know that. That's only in part of this whole thing with these tapes. It shows his lack of judgment quite well. So I mean, who says for 18 18 takes basically but a malignant narcissist that wants his hands on the next book That's going to be written about him with likely his picture on the cover. But there was one point made earlier. I think that he had to tell him that he was being taped. I think there are regulations so he did what we're told him. He did. But when I said I wish he hadn't I was I was being Trumpian. I was saying to hell with rules and laws. What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. I'm gonna tape your ass Ain't got to tell you But Bob Woodward has more ethics than I do, apparently. But when it comes to trump nothing, there is nothing I wouldn't do to expose who he is. And then when, when you know he was going out while white and Bob Woodward say something, you know and just told him. Well, first of all, I don't know that That people will see you know he was going to release the tape anyway, but people would just believe him without releasing the tapes. And Woodward probably had, you know, have a raise, and I have never published the book. But I would imagine that there's a certain level of when Wendy released things in what order on DH. He certainly probably could not do that before the you know the book was actually published. Plan, you know? Well, we'll see. There's more to come march that we know.

"Who is? Like the master out there but it's interesting to see how now so much these details are coming out now in sort of Daily News reporting. But in this book form, right like you just said, there's different people that are coming forward now collecting information and publishing books in their accounts or doing their first person accounts of what they've seen the experience that they've had and so to some extent, it's like they're saving the juicy bits for the books and not sprinkling them out in the newspapers like Woodward and Bernstein did back in the early seventies right with the Washington Post. Reports were stripped reported on Watergate. So you know I would I would have trusted the Bob Woodward spidey sense probably went up during many times during these eighteen interviews that he said he had with the president where he learned all sorts of interesting you know details about the president's thinking and so.

That's tough especially here and and how do you? How do you sit on that for a number of months? If you're if you `specially, if you're a reporter who first came to favor somebody who's breaking great stories of on a daily basis so Yeah. That's that's interesting Steve Terry. Wondering do you think that someone what's going on here this idea of saving things up for a book as opposed to running them out in the daily newspaper Is, that is that a sign that. That daily newspapers have diminished in stature since. The publication of all the Watergate stories in say nineteen seventy-three year so. Well let me just make one. Very. Important comment and on first of all Bob, Woodward is no longer a daily journalists and as a matter of fact, he's no longer employed by the Washington Post. He does have a honorary title. But he is not and as not for several years Ben a active player in the newsroom unlike Michael Schmidt of the New York Times who is still employed by the New York Times something read that as. With that as a background I do believe that Bob Woodward made the right call in keeping the conversations going on the record on Recorded with President trump for this release this week and I think the impact of it is much more profound, much more important now than it would have been if in early February. Bob came back to newsroom rush stay story out With the what trump said. And as we saw yesterday, we know exactly what trump's reaction would have been. Oh, I was not lying said I was trying to not cause panic and you know what a week later that story would have been for. This Bob, Woodward Book Will Not Be. Forgot. Certainly, not as easily or not as soon I think you're right about that Stephen and I, think you make an important distinction also to noto Woodward is in his seventies now in retirement age and. Certainly for someone in who's worked for longtime daily paper like The Washington Post, the they are. The member of the staff at the post represented by the newspaper Guild these probably collecting a pension these days. On. A very handsome work and and so I would think that. We have a retired journalist. Lisa. Does that make a difference that he's still should he still have at least gone to the editors of the post and said Hey I have great material for daily stories here I can write him up we hand him off the your current staff..

"To you by Tombstone. Tactical got to give a shout out to Megan McCain. She's the foil on that show. Daniel. She does a good job occasionally when she doesn't get it, and you know, caught up in her own Trump Derangement syndrome. She does a good job of laying out why conservatives, I think the way that they do. Here's what she had to say about conservatives. Republicans in the media. I cannot tell you the levels of insanity and stupidity. You have to be in politics to give 18 hours to any journalist on the record period. Bob Woodward said. Hey, Megan, what did you have for breakfast? I'd say off the record Bob. No comment, and then I would call my war room and I would and I'd say, What does he want? What's going on? And what kind of angle does he had? Because, as Republicans, this's almost famous all the time. They're the enemy and they're here to make you look bad. So the idea that you're gonna let literally a shark coming on to me? What do you think's gonna happen for a Republican? The media is I would never let my principal ever under any circumstances doing on the record interview with With someone like Bob Woodward. Megan McCain is absolutely correct. This is why I tell Republicans they should not go on CNN. Or MSNBC. But here's where Megan McCain is wrong. Donald Trump is not a Republican. He is not your typical Republican. He just pulled that thing behind his name because he after his cartilaginous, he figured that he could win with the Republican Party and with the principles We have all been pleasantly surprised. That his policies have been conservative. With the very fact that that Donald Trump doesn't think of themselves as a Republican, but has been trying to use the Republican Party to advance these values advanced. These policies speaks volumes. That's why he could sit down with a Bob Woodward and not be destroyed by him. That's the difference. Young Megan.

Just so happens to have a book coming out here soon. And wow. What? There's an election coming. This is this is all pre meditated. It's all pre plan. I'm not excusing. What he says.

"It s so there's this this new book that's coming out again from journalist Bob Woodward to him. Or lets go to this press conference with Donald Trump Nail answering questions about this book from Bob Woodward and allegations That Trump initially tried to downplay the seriousness of the Corona virus to the American public early on in the pandemic, our country that he do that Okay, please. Good. You have a question question. You address the concerns from woodwork regard whether you down place. Well, I think if you said in order to reduce panic, perhaps that so The fact is I'm a cheerleader for this country. I love our country and I don't want people to be frightened. I don't want to create panic, as you say. And certainly I'm not going to drive this country or the world into a frenzy. We want to show confidence. We want to show strength. We want to show strength as a nation. And that's what I've done and we've done very well. We've done well from any standard. You look at our numbers compared to other countries of the parts of the world. It's been an amazing job that we've done. I think it's very sad in many respects because The incredible individuals working so hard on it, including our vice president. They've done this great job. They haven't been acknowledged by the news media and they should for the job we've done whether it's ventilators, and now you'll see very soon with vaccines and with Therapeutics. The job we've done has been incredible, but we don't want to. We don't want to instill panic. We don't want to jump up and down and start shouting that we have a problem. That is tremendous problems scare everybody and I'll tell you the other thing. We immediately started buying all over the world. We started buying Masks and gowns and everything else and we don't want to cause Pricing to go up to a level that becomes almost unaffordable. So yeah, and that's it. So, in that sense, I agree with it your place. How do you reassure the American public going forward that they can trust what you're saying? Well, I think that's really a big part of trust. We have to have leadership. We have to show leadership. But the last thing you want to do is create a panic in the country. This was a horrible thing. It was sent to us by China should not have happened should never have happened. This is a disgusting, terrible situation that was foisted upon us, and we have to show we just don't want to use the best word is panic. We don't want to have to show panic would not go into show panic and that's exactly what I did. And I was very open. Whether it's to Woodward or anybody else is just another political hitch up, but whether it was Woodward or anybody else. You cannot show a sense of panic or you're gonna have bigger problems than you ever had before. Place trying to reduce panics or in February 7. It's more deadly than your place. Mr President would like a few more more forthright forthright with with the the American American people people More More last last been been saved. saved. You You took took responsibility responsibility at at all all for for some some of of the the 200,000 200,000 deaths deaths that that we've we've had. had. So So I I think think if if we we didn't didn't do do what what we we did, did, we we would would have have Millions of people die. We closed up our country. We close it up very, very quickly. Very effectively. We did a job. We learned about this horrible disease along with the rest of the world, which had to learn about it. And then we opened it up. And now we know the vulnerable. We know who it attacks who it's so vicious against. And I think we've done from every standpoint a incredible job. We shouldn't have lost anybody. Nobody should have lost. China released something that they shouldn't have been allowed to. They should not have released. It came out of China. It went to Europe. It went all over the world should have never happened. That could have stopped it. They stopped it from going into the remainder of China. It started in Wuhan. And they stopped it, but they didn't stop it from coming to our country. Now Now we we had had to to show show calm. calm. We We had had to to show show you you know know if if it it was was up up to to you you or or whoever. whoever. I I have have no no idea idea what what he he said. said. In In the the book book and and again. again. It's It's a a book book that that I gave him some quotes and frankly, we'll see how the book turned out. I have no idea you're asking me questions for the first time. But again, the last thing we can show is panic. Or excitement or fear or anything else We had to take care of that. We had to take care of the situation we were given now. Long before anybody else wanted to do it. I closed our borders. To a very heavily infected China. If I didn't do that, we would have had hundreds of thousands more people die doctor found, she said it many people, said it. It was a great decision. It was a decision I made and I had to make. It was a decision that a lot of people thought I was wrong, Nancy Pelosi said I was wrong. Joe bought, Biden said I was wrong. They all came back. And they said it was the right decision. And I I was was way way early. early. That That was was in in January. January. The The end end of of January. January. Did Did that. that. So So that that was was a a very very good good thing thing we we did did otherwise, otherwise, we we would would have have had had hundreds hundreds of of thousands thousands more. more. But But if we didn't close the country, we would have been talking about millions of people instead of the numbers that we have right now, you mentioned that you were trying to price gouging. But Bob Woodward recognizes its virus spreading through the year on February 7th. You didn't begin project airbridge until March. You didn't use the bed until March starts. You didn't really think it was going to be to the point where it was. All of a sudden the world was infected. The entire world was infected. Everyone was scrambling around looking with Abi. Face masks and all of the other things. We've opened up factories. We've had tremendous success with face masks and wish heels and with the ventilators were now supplying the rest of the world. We have all the ventilators we can use. And remember this Event. Ladies were very important. Not one person that needed a ventilator didn't get it, And he's a very complex, expensive machines to make. We opened up. Something like hadn't been done since the second World War. We honestly we've done an incredible job, but we don't want to. Run around, screaming, shouting! Oh, look at this! Look at this. We have to show leadership and leadership is all about confidence and confidence is confidence in our country. And our people have been great. We've been put through a lot by China by releasing this by having this come here. We will put to a lot. They could have done something about it. And they chose not to. I am very honored to have have presented presented to to you you today today a a list list of of 20 20 incredible incredible people. people. And And we we will will talk talk later. later.

This is deadly Joe Biden seizing on this during a campaign event in Michigan. He knew how deadly it was. It was much more deadly than the flu he knew and purposely played it down. Worse, he lied to the American people. White House spokeswoman Kayleigh Mcenany denies that the president has never lied to the American public on coded.
