'Just the News' Founder John Solomon Describes His Journey
"We go deeper into the deep state for those who are unfamiliar with your background, I was so delighted I was on a Twitter spaces tonight ago just before the president was set to make his appearance and I mentioned your name with regards to that story that we discussed on my show and I was in a Twitter space of about 8000 people and the immediate reaction from the other speakers was ah yes, John Solomon a name you can trust. Tell us, tell us about who John Solomon, how did you get to be the head of your own media empire? What jobs have you done in the past? Where have you worked and tell us why? Why are you so moved to create your own media entity? Yeah, listen, I grew up as a traditional reporter. I still believe that journalism can be a noble profession if you focus on the facts and not the outcomes, right? You're not trying to create outcomes, you're trying to allow the American people to make up their own mind and over the last 20 years as I work first at The Associated Press. I started at UPI as a 17 year old reporter at an age 19. I got hired by The Associated Press. I put a two decades in at The Associated Press, was hired by The Washington Post to be their lead national investigative reporter, got to work with amazing people like Bob Woodward and others who, you know, when you're growing up as a journalist, so is your idols, your icons. After that, I will eventually landed at the hill where I did a lot of the Hunter Biden reporting. And I stayed in the establishment media for most of the first 30 years of my career. But I saw a really scary thing going on. And I think it started maybe in the summer of 2007, I was in The Washington Post newsroom. The scooter Libby verdict came down scooter Libby had been the chief of staff to Janie Dick Cheney was a very reviled person in liberal and quite frankly media circles today. He's a little bit more champion because of his daughter's opposition to Donald Trump, but he was hated by the media back then. And when the verdict of guilty was announced against scooter Libby, half or more of the newsroom of The Washington Post erupted in cheers and I thought, wow, that it felt like a violation of the newsroom had always been for me, particularly at the AP, a sanctuary where political opinions were left at the door. When you came into the newsroom, you didn't have biases, you didn't have political opinions. You came in with facts and you left with facts and you tried not to change anyone's mind.

"Okay, so this hearing continued the subcommittee hearing on the weaponization of government. And just to prove the weaponization of government is not real, Democrats weaponized government against journalists. It seems to be a pretty good way to put this. The most egregious performer wasn't even Stacey plasket who was awful yesterday. It was Debbie wasserman Schultz former head of the Democratic National Committee. And still representative from Florida. She tried to claim yesterday that Matt taibbi and Michael shellenberger are bad journalists because they make a living, which raises the question as to don't journalists from other outlets make a living. Are we now to believe that the way that we gauge a journalist is whether they operate in the nonprofit space or whether they are poor, I'm confused. So if you run a story and people want to read the story, then apparently that's bad journalism. If you're on a story and nobody reads the story, and that's good journalism. There's no logic to this. This just wasserman Schultz trying to throw mud at a couple of journalists she doesn't like. Elon Musk, spoon fed you his cherry picked information, which you must have suspected promotes a slanted viewpoint or at the very least generates another right-wing conspiracy theory. You violated your own standard and you appear to have benefited from it. Before the release of emails of the emails in August of last year, you had 661,000 Twitter followers. After the Twitter files, your followers doubled, and now it's three times what it was last August. I imagine your substack leadership, which is a subscription, increased significantly because of the work that you did for Elon Musk. Now I'm not asking you to put a dollar figure on it, but it's quite obvious that you've profited from the Twitter files. You hit the jackpot on that Vegas slot machine to which you referred. And so this is so disgusting. It's so disgusting. So in other words, The New York Times, which one Pulitzer prizes on the basis of a bunch of reports about a Russian collusion scandal that did not exist. You think they gained subscribers based on that? You think, I think they probably did. In fact, I know they did because they revealed their subscriber statistics every so often. Do you think that when Democrats break a big story in the media about Republicans, that they make money off of that? I think they probably do. As it turns out, you know who's made an entire living, off of like one story, Bob Woodward. Bob Woodward has been entire living off of one story that ran in the 1970s. Does that make him a bad journalist because he made money off of that story? It turns out that when people want to pay you to do things, that's typically a reminder that the story is kind of important, actually. It's a pretty good gauge of the market's interest in the things that you have to say. But according to Debbie wasserman Schultz, if Matt taibbi and Michael schellenberger are more famous now than they were before they revealed the story, this makes them bad, which is weird because it's been true of literally every journalist for literally all of human history. That you make more prominent splashes when you break bigger stories. Somebody sound the alarm, guys. I mean, we've stumbled upon a corrupt relationship where in journalists who break big stories become more famous. Somebody get Upton Sinclair on the phone. Please, we need it to talk about on the phone. Come on, this has been true forever. But they're bad, they're bad. One of my favorite things here is the fact that not only are the Democrats on this particular subcommittee really venal and attempting to attack the press in ways that again, if Republicans did it, would be seen as full scale attacks on the press. They also just happened to be unbelievably ignorant. So Sylvia Garcia, who we saw a moment ago being foolish. Well, she is her foolishness really knows very few bounds. My favorite part, I'm not sure which clip I like better here. We're gonna play two, and then we're gonna decide which one we like better. So the first one is where she is talking about how Matt taibbi has a substack. Now, for those who are not informed of substack, is basically like a paid newsletter that you can access online. So if I have a substack, I write a piece, you pay for a subscription and I can read the beast. That's all a substack is. She has no idea what it she doesn't even know what Internet it. Internet. What is this thing that you type on? Is it a computer? How is it pronounced? There is a honest to God representative in the United States Congress. Yeah, you yourself posted on your, I guess it's kind of like a web page and quite an understand what substack is, but well, I guess you can admit that out loud. That was honestly, this next one is the best. This is where she implies. That Matt taibbi, Michael shellenberger and Barry Weiss, who is a

"Blinken's comments follow a meeting with the Israeli defense minister in Jerusalem today. Former president Donald Trump is suing journalist Bob Woodward for releasing recordings of interviews that he gave to the journalist in 2019 and 2020.

"He's a key witness and he's already acknowledged that the production of 9000 documents, there's a lot he could testify to that is no way privileged. So that's who I'm referring to, but there are others who are resisting as well. And of course, the former president is suing to try to prevent us from getting records in the archives. I would hope that the courts recognize he's using the same tactic he used for four years, which was simply to use the courts to deprive the country and the Congress of important information to protect our democracy. Just finally, are you confident that whatever records there are, were turned over to the national archives because I was talking to a former archivist last night who said there's really no mechanism that forces people in The White House to turn over if they chose not to if they have, you know, if they want to delete stuff and not turn it over, I mean, do you have knowledge that there is information there that's important? I don't know. And I'm deeply concerned about it. There's certainly indications, for example, for example, the people using encrypted apps like signal to make sure that they're confident, their conversations were confidential, did that also mean that those text conversations were not turned over to the archives. I don't know. There were voluminous apparently records and messages on personal emails, you know, notwithstanding the fact that many of these same people viciously attacked secretary Clinton for much of the same thing, so that is a very prevalent concern of mine. And I think other committee members and we're determined to get to the bottom of it. Congressman Schiff, I appreciate your time. Thank you. Joining us now. Thank you. Political analyst Gloria borgia, and we should note here that she and everyone appearing on set has tested negative today for COVID. Also, Robert Costa and Bob Woodward co authors, apparel, the bestselling and deeply reported account of the former president's final days in office. Bob, you heard congressman Schiff, you heard attorney general Garland today. I'm wondering what your reaction to how all of this is playing out one year after this instruction. Well, I think this January 6th committee is being very aggressive and very thorough, but you can't measure it by the number of interviews, the question is, are there first hand witnesses and participants who are going to explain what happened? And let's also deal with the political reality here. It is a divided nation, not just about Trump or the election, but about January 6th, and there are lots of people who think, oh, this was fine in my view having done this for decades, what happened on January 6th was a crime against the constitution and so are they going to find witnesses or evidence that will get people to look more clearly and understand the nature of that crime. I mean, you know, just trying to overturn an election as you point out an attack on democracy and its central premise. Chairman Benny Thompson yesterday called on vice president Pence voluntarily to speak to the committee. You've been talking to sources. Is that really a possibility? I mean, obviously, we've been there's been reporting by you and others Jimmy king and others about Mark short and others around the vice president speaking. Right, who are talking to the committee who are cooperating with the committee numbers of staff and also people who are protected the vice president don't forget were witnesses here. I would have to say after talking to my sources that it would be highly unlikely that the former vice president would just walk in and say, oh yeah, I'm going to voluntarily cooperate here. I think they'd have to subpoena him. And that's kind of iffy. You know that that would be litigated, and it would take a long time for that to go through. I think one thing that has been suggested to me and could happen is that perhaps the committee would give him written questions. And he might answer those written questions. I mean, remember Donald Trump did that, and the Mueller investigation, and I don't know that it did them a lot of good. But that is a potential way to kind of work a compromise here. If it were to come to that. Robert, I mean, here we are one year later, based on everything that we know about the investigation. So far, how does it square with reporting of your book and your reporting since then? Congressman Schiff brought up an important point so much of this story is not only about January 6th, 2021. It's about the days prior. And I think back to a year ago tonight Anderson, January 5th, when I was outside the Willard hotel, Penn and pad in hand as Proud Boys and oath keepers passed me on Pennsylvania avenue and inside Giuliani, Bannon talking to Trump, talking to Trump's lawyers, talking to other Trump allies. This was a coordinated pressure campaign in addition to an insurrection in both of those lines of reporting demand more answers. Well, I mean, how much do you think Robert has actually been reported from inside their or at least the January 6th committee? Do you think they have access to anything of really what was going on inside the Wheeler? Bob Woodward and I have talked a lot about this in comparative to Watergate, what helped break Watergate open was a John dean testimony, someone from the inside. But if they don't have that this time and insider who's going to give public dramatic testimony, they're going to have to rely on facts on documents. We unearthed as many as we could in our book peril, like the John eastman memo. But what's going to be important for this committee is to find more documentation of that coordinated pressure campaign to show paper to give people who are skeptical of the committee and the fact that this was an insurrection. Real evidence of that pressure campaign and that's how text messages come into part of the equation in addition to phone calls and other memos that might be out there. Bob, former White House press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, who was remarkably silent when she would actually press secretary. She now apparently met with the January 6th committee tonight. How helpful do you think she could be on this investigation based on what you know from your reporting?

Well, that's what I was going to ask you because the last time I had John, we were saying, you know, if Merrick Garland does not do anything by the end of this year, is it time for him to step down and I believe you said yeah. I don't remember if you asked me that or if I answered that question, I will say if Merrick Garland doesn't show some signs of criminally investigating Donald Trump with a view toward indicting him for the many, many, many crimes he committed. Then I think we're going to need to turn to an attorney general who will. Yeah, because right now, how do you stand with Merrick Garland? I mean, you know, I know, I know we don't know what he's doing behind the scenes, but right now he's been in there. How long now? 9 months? Yeah. I have a hard time conceiving of living in a country where the Department of Justice headed up by good people give our democracy away to a criminal president or a criminal former president. I have a hard time conceiving of that happening. So I still expect he will be indicted. I expect he'll be indicted in Georgia. I expect he'll be indicted in New York. I was talking with Mehdi Hassan on his show last night. I would like to see us follow Brazil's lead for goodness sake. Brazil's trying to hold its president criminally accountable for avoidable COVID deaths. And Bolsonaro, the Brazilian president was merely sort of negligent or reckless. Donald Trump was worse than negligent and reckless. Donald Trump intentionally lied to the American people, we now know because he was telling Bob Woodward the truth about how deadly it was. How it was so much more aggressive than even the aggressive strains of flu. How easily it was spread, and then he walked to the cameras and lied to all of us. And, you know, there's this one cardinal sin. When he started mocking reporter Jeff mason, who's a heck of a reporter. During a White House press conference, saying take off the mask. Take off the mask. Jeff mason said, mister president, I'm not going to take off, oh, I guess that's because you want to be politically correct. John, do you know how that must have permeated Donald Trump's base the people who for whatever reason are fooled by him and act based on what he says? How many of them do you think said, I'm not wearing a mask? Did you see the way Donald Trump mocked that reporter and said the only reason you wear masks is to be politically correct? Donald Trump ran us all into the path of an oncoming deadly pandemic. And he should be held criminally accountable for that, just like they're trying to do to the president of Brazil. Yeah, I mean, and it's like, you know, it's getting to be really, really scary. I mean, look, just like the science says behind you, justice matters. My question to you Glenn does Merrick Garland know this?.

"On the look back I don't want to do that I'm going to talk about the future and Robert Kosta you and your book by saying the peril remains What do you mean by that Well I couldn't have a better reporting partner in Bob Woodward He has taught me so much And to that question about peril remains That's a theme that runs throughout the book And it's built not just it's not an opinion It's based on reporting And that's the Woodward method Tell the story of American politics American democracy through scenes And you see at the end of our book president Trump is out there on the political campaign trail He has a warlike cadence in some of these speeches saying we will never surrender Never give in when it comes to conceding the 2020 election He's demanding a comeback So I'm gonna look at what we see with Greg grindon in the great American myth looking at jacksonian history and how it folds over to the GOP Robert Costa what kind of Republican Party do you perceive in 2024 A Republican Party riven by divisions You see in our book someone like leader McConnell the Senate minority leader wants to move on but so many people inside the GOP on Capitol Hill and beyond believe president Trump still has political capital And so his decision on 2024 will really dominate where this party goes at this point but there's competition Vice president Pence a complicated political figure as our book shows he may want to have his own say his own bid and there are other stars out there but president Trump he remains the political of force inside the GOP There's a question right now bob woodard of what the current administration is facing in terms of getting a Washington back to a semblance of what is considered or was considered normal considering all of your coverage backs in the nixonian days How dysfunctional is today's government based on some of the changes in the upheavals that we've seen over the past number of years Well that's an important question It continues Our point here is that Trump triggered a national security crisis that we didn't know about was secret during the transition from prompt to Biden And his Costa says look everything is payroll And if we look at Biden right now he's got immense problems with Afghanistan with the virus and he's running into some obstacles in his own party in the Democratic Party He's supposed to be the leader and say okay everyone do this but that's not the way Washington works and maybe it is inevitable that people are going to be outliers that they are going to just say we're not going to march to somebody else's vision We've got our own Which really raises a question about this new dynamic This new increasing frustration about a dysfunctional Washington and how you go about handling it And bob I just want to know if you think of there is any precedent in terms of a group just saying we are not going to work with the establishment period full stop unless we get everything we want which seems to be an increasing fringe on both sides of the aisle both Democrats and Republicans While there are precedents presidents and president Clinton had a hard time getting his plan through It was a squeaker until the end So the debate in Washington as you well know always one of them is about taxing and spending How much spending how much taxing and there's a lot of uncertainty out there and there is a lot of peril if I may use that phrase about where this goes because the Democratic Party come apart Bob just taking a step back when you look at all the reporting that you did for apparel what's your big takeaway in the new nature of the United States democracy in this new very fractious era Well it's been tested and stretched by both parties That was authors Bob Woodward and Robert Costa with Bloomberg's Tom Keane and Lisa Abramovich And coming up vaccinating the airline industry.

"bob woodward" Discussed on Lovett or Leave It
"Amer back he is the chairman of the house intelligence committee and the representative california's twenty eighth. District my congressman. Please welcome adam. Schiff could to see great. I also want i. We have a lot to cover here. All right We have new reporting on the ways. In which the trump administration was trying to undermine democracy. I wanna talk to you about the bill. You've just introduced to try to limit abuses of power by the president. And i have some questions about veganism At the end. Let's start with this memo. So a memo from a right wing lawyer. John eastman uncovered by robert qasim. Bob woodward of the post basically outlines how to in democracy in six easy steps it walk through what vice president pence could have done to lead a coup on behalf of donald trump and based on a lot of reporting. It seems like pence was really struggling with what to do which is despicable one claim. The memo seems to make more. Broadly is that mike pence was a single point of failure in the system. Do you agree with that supposition. By this right wing lawyer will. I do agree that that was certainly possible. that mike pensive. He had decided that he was not gonna recognized a set of electors mistake because the president was urging him not to. I wanted to concoct a reason why he could do that then. Who knows where that would have led to. So that was a vulnerability in our system. I don't know that. I would say the only point of 'vulnerability that oh i am what we're seeing around the country with these loss. Republicans are passing are. Creating new vulnerabilities where satan elections officials are being deprived of their power independent elections officials in this being given to partisan bodies so that they can overturn the results of the election in their state. If that were to happen it would cause new crisis when it got to congress joint session. So we've learned about a lot of older abilities in our system that we didn't appreciate 'til rigorously and i do think this ties into the bill. You've introduced today because one aspect of the memo and this larger effort on the part of the right that i find particularly chilling is how it is couched in the language of the law and of civility and respectability. There's this point that the memo makes that even the left would view some of these claims non-justiciable which means that they wouldn't be able to be resolved by the courts which would mean power. Grab would succeed as you were thinking about. This believe introduced today. How do you think about how to limit abuses of power absent. A culture in the white house and the broader right wing movement that respects traditional norms. That respects traditional political pressure. Fundamentally how did you think about that as you were working on. This really goes right to the heart of the motivation behind this package of reforms. And that is that we thought certain norms were inviolate that no crescent would go there because none had gone there in the past and it turns out you can break all these rules with near impunity. If one condition is presence in that condition is that the party of the president is willing to go along with him. I even to the prejudice of their own institution our democracy their oath of office if nothing matters to them as much as maintaining their position or power these new provisions in the protecting our democracy act are designed really regardless of you know which party is in power to strengthen the tools that congress has the american people have to keep our democracy together so it would curb. The abuse of presidential pardons Told us snatching of limitation on presidential crimes so that no one could outrun the statute by saying office. I it would give congress a mechanism to enforce the emoluments clause so they can't enrich themselves. It would protect inspector generals and would protect whistle blowers and a whole host of other things that were norms that we would put into law. Now as you point out even that is not perfect answer. People are not willing to observe the spirit of the law as well as the letter of the law and problem. That you point out with this offer memo is something that helped to address wearing a different hat in congress and that is as a member of the january six select committee because we will be making recommendations on how to deal with the entire scope with threats that manifest itself on january six. Can you talk a little bit about what abuses specifically. This would have If not prevented exposed sooner or made more difficult for the white house to achieve Without raising some alarms well. For example you might recall when kellyanne conway violated the hatch act and the special prosecutor not muller but the special prosecutor assigned to look into hatchback violations recommended that because it was such a blatant violation. She'd be fired Of course president trump didn't fire her and her reaction was blah blah blah. I don't care what you're gonna do about it a simile. When the white house had the republican convention on white house grounds and again wyler the hatchback. There was no repercussion. While we have stiffen the penalties under the check. So that people like kellyanne conway would react more with with the blah blah blah. They thought they were serious. Repercussions and in so many other ways We have acted to be able to enforce these protections. I and we have also expressed the sense of congress. A prison Harden themselves we have provided for expedited enforcement of congressional subpoenas and provided that we can find individual agency people who refused to provide testimony documents so it would address any number of the abuses. We've seen yeah. I remember there was a hatchback violation and there was a fine handed out and it was such a meager fine that it didn't read like a punishment for the hash out violation. It looked like a hatch violation fee. Like you can just simply pay this small fee in order to break the law and the white house for political purposes as you said at the outset. There is a giant loophole for all of us. If the president's party is a control of at least one house of congress that prevents impeachment. That is the ultimate check. Have you thought at all about ways in which we can rain in presidential authority simply by means of oversight if we have one branch of government if we have the ability to get information or records or if there's regular disclosures associated with some of these reforms yes if the president is controlling both houses. Then you're really outta luck. If you've got a despot in the oval office up but at least one hands the other party this package reforms would for example. Allow that committee chair or subcommittee chair to enforce subpoenas to get information to make public and transparent and expose corruption and menstruation which can be obviously very powerful and salutory i. It would allow one branch of government to enforce the emoluments clause so go after president. Who is through his businesses enriching himself by you know gulf nations renting hotel rooms. They don't even views as a way of potentially currying favor with the with president so it does provide for exactly the kind of situation we faced over the last four years. What kind of subpoenaed forsman. We're talking about well. The principal challenge. We've had frankly. Is that lasted stretch. Decided to stonewall sapinas could simply lay broke into open the courts endlessly and did we went up to the supreme court and had to come back down and go back up to the spring oregon and with this will do is say we could go directly to a three judge court and we could go directly from that three court to the supreme court and requires the court stack with expedition but it also provides that in certain cases we can find those who refuse to comply and the hec cannot defer the costs so we'd come from them personally and people have a financial stake himselves. That could make a big difference and finally because the justice department is no longer run by a crony lakeville voire. The president is also possible that the justice department would enforce a criminal contempt against.

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.

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.

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.

You're right except there's a problem there. The constitutional requirement for treason requires two witnesses.

E says she won a battle with Facebook in the news at 1 30 Radio one Oh 55. W E. R C Hey, Welcome back in Clay, Travis, Buck Sexton Blockbuster news. In many ways, I think associated with this claim that General Milley Was having behind the scenes conversations with his Chinese counterparts, essentially letting them know either. I'm not going to execute the orders that are given to me by the democratically elected president, United States Donald Trump. Or I'm going to give you a heads up before we take military action. And Buck and I are having a discussion in the last segment again as this news is breaking and my immediate read on it is this is treason. This is espionage. And so I want to take it out of the current Donald Trump dynamics and let's just go to history, okay? Let's pretend That we had a really good relationship with Japan in this, then this early December or late November of 1941. And we got a secret phone call. From a Japanese military member. And he said here he toe has lost his mind. Over here in Japan, he's enthralled with the Axis powers. He and Hitler having secret communications, and I want to let you know something. I think he's about to launch an unprovoked attack against you in the United States. And it's going to happen. I believe at Pearl Harbor, your Pacific military base. Well, we would like to have that information. And certainly it would be helpful to us. With that be treason in your mind on behalf of the Japanese general. Who was giving that information to his American counterpart in advance and in direct opposition to the military planning of Japan. I think almost all of you out there listening right now would say, Man, that guy in Japan would be committing treason against his country and would certainly be guilty of espionage. I'm using a historical analogy outside of the United States because I think a lot of times Donald Trump himself is so freighted buck with emotional responses. That it's hard for people to think rationally. But when I hear that report from Bob Woodward, I immediately think this is treason. This is espionage, and not only that. Millie is bragging about it. Bragging about it Book. 1 800 to 8 to 2882. I would like to hear from military out there that might have an opinion about.

"Morning. Good to be with him. Good to hear you and what's happening in D. C. How long are all those guardsmen and other security personnel going to be? On duty there. Do we know we did you know? I don't think that's exactly clear yet, But what we do know is that they're they're here. Still. Um, And typically, they may stay a day or two after. Uh you know the inauguration, but I think this year just given everything that we've seen, we're likely to see him stick around. Maybe not in the same numbers. That they were here. You know earlier, but I think they're gonna be sticking around for a couple of days. Does anybody have any idea yet when we're going to hear more from Mitch McConnell when he's gonna show his hand as to what he's going to do or not do regarding impeachment? You know, I think we're gonna have to let the Senate trial play out that I don't know that he's going to come out and give us an indication as to how he'll vote. You know, he's already come out and said that he's going to wait to hear all the evidence before. He makes a decision, which I think already is telling. Because if you remember back got it feels like forever now, But you know the first impeachment year ago, um right away. He and most other Republicans were pretty clear that they felt like it was a partisan, you know, situation and they were not going to support it at all. This was a foregone conclusion. This year. It's obviously a lot different and this time around here, you know, he's not saying, you know, this is bogus. He's saying, Let's hear the evidence and I mean on the floor of the Senate two days ago, he came out and said The president is responsible for what happened so Could be interesting. Let's see Joe Biden's been president. Almost 24 hours. So is it Time for some reporter to ask him about 2024? Is that how it works, Joe? Yeah, I'm sure that's going to come through. You know, I mean way. Assume Because, you know he's made these these sort of vague statements in the past that you know he's going to be a transitional president, um, that I guess because Kamila Harris has been for almost 24 hours. The vice president now, um that maybe you know she is. Front runner at this point for her going 24 you know that speculating a little bit there. But, um, who knows? Who knows what I will say is they think that this is an opportunity. Just because we have Three major crises going on with, you know the security situation, the division the economy and then obviously the pandemic. This is an opportunity for you know the by the administration to be really a transformational and really important, you know, I think a lot of look back in history. A lot of the president's. We remember our ones that came into office because they've had Major crises and we remember them for how they handle them. So this is an opportunity. You know, Some people kind of write him office. Like always. You know, he's an old guy. I think you give him a chance. I think this is You know a way to be. Oh, this is a moment on we'll see how he handles it. And that's how great presidents become great. They rise to the occasion in crisis, don't they? Yeah. I mean, you think back to all of the presidents that you can really remember. You know, people, people make a lot of comparisons now. So you know, when Lincoln was in office because of the obviously we had the Civil war and now we have You know a country so divided that people say it hasn't been this much division since the Civil War. You know, people have come into office. FDR during that, you know, the Depression and a World war. Um, and he was able to handle these dual crises. So, yeah, I think this is going to be an opportunity. You know for him to be one of those presidents that you look back on in history and say he handled these crises and got the country back on track, but, you know, History are the future Rather only only has that answer for it. After watching the inauguration yesterday, I really thought that the president's first executive order would be to replace all of those steps around the monuments and the buildings in the capital with escalators, But that wasn't one of the executive orders. It was, you know, No was it wasn't but I'll tell you, I think it's Telling that in three hours after he was president, they had 17 executive orders and directives. Ready to go on a lot of them, you know, undid. Some of the Trump Administration era policies that, you know, really caught. Everyone's attention. The Muslim country travel ban, You know, building the wall, getting us back into the Paris climate accords and the World health Organization. Um, so it was clearly This is I think the big takeaway from yesterday was, you know, he talked a lot about unity. And certainly that was a scene. But I think the all the theme also was, you know, we're turning a page now, and the whole day was about that. You know, he invited Senator McConnell and the House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy to go to church with him. You know, he Made some overtures to the Republican Party. So he was talking about bringing the country back together. But also in his speech. They were AH, lot of not so subtle references to Trump administration things. You know whether they're maybe policies or attitudes or whatever you know things like I will always be straight with you, You know, and he started to say that a lot after we found out you know, the president was told Bob Woodward he was downplaying the Corona virus, right? So it's just little things that you know he's clearly trying to just turn the page. And you know, in effect employees to do that is your your president for literally three hours and you've got 17 directives ready to go with his signature on them already? Well, let's let's just hope our government can work as good as it looked and sounded yesterday and last night and I'm not sure Joe Colella what Your assignment is for news Nation tonight at seven o'clock, but I have a suggestion.

"Shapiro Show. Let's jump back in Ernest Here was Kamila Harris. You know, playing the victim card here. She was claiming that that Mike Pence was mansplaining to her. It's so terror he's interrupting. Here we go. The vice president said When asked. Well, why don't you all tell anybody? He said, because the president wanted people to remain calm. Let's go. I don't know. But tonight this is important and I want to add Mr Vice President speaking, I'm speaking. Don't you know what's amazing there is that page jumps in and interrupt Harris right, she says. Mr Vice President, Cause you want him to answer the charge and pence then follows up on page saying, Okay, I'd like to answer that, and she, she immediately jumps to I'm speaking here. This is my floor. I'm speaking here. Okay, Here's the deal. That is called like a normal debate. And Susan Page was the first person to interrupt Kamila Harris in that suite in that in that particular clip the first time she brings out she can't bring out this gun throughout the debate. Whenever she felt she was losing. She went to. I'm trying to speak here. I want my time. Hey, here's after. After all, the time was counted up. Actually, there are a couple different estimates. At the very least, she got equal time with pence, and by some accounts, she got three minutes more than pens. Apparently she was victimized mean that clip is astonishing. Page is the one who jumps in and then Penn says, Okay, now it's my time. No, no, I'm still speak. Mr Vice President, I am speaking here I am speaking. You're gonna have to pick one again. Women are fully empowered. It is wonderful that we have female VP candidates. They should be treated just the same as everyone else. Or women must be treated as though they are weak creatures incapable of handling a mild mannered vice president saying to them, I'd like to answer that place. That's literally what Mike Pence's, because I'd like to respond. I'm sorry that and as we'll see this became the media narrative. It's really, really incredible. Okay back to the debate. So common. Harris starts talking with Mike Pence about about vaccines, and she's asked directly if she will take a vaccine. And she keeps writing out this nonsensical line about vaccines where she says, Well, if Donald Trump tells me to take the vaccine, I won't. But if doctors told me to take a back seat, I will. What do you think Donald Trump is down in the basement cooking up the serum? I think Donald Trump is like taking out the bodies out of his own body, and he's making a virus in antivirus, like Will Smith in I am Legend like that's how this is all going here. A common Harris Or is it true that under the Trump Administration operation works meat is developing a vaccine faster than any vaccine has been developed in human history. And that he deserves some credit for that. This is such a nonsensical in silly line Here is Harris talking about vaccines. You respect the American people when you tell them the truth, if the public health professionals if Dr Fauci if the doctors tell us that we should take it, I'll be the first in line to take it. Absolutely. But if Donald Trump tells us I said that we should take it, I'm not taking it. Okay. I have a question. Does she actually think that Donald Trump is going to be out there like okay, You know this vaccine. All my doctors are rejecting. Go take it right now. Right now. They met Mike Pence properly calls her up, calls her out on this. And and Commodus marks throughout her performance was abysmal. The media are trying to save her from herself. They've been trying to do it for literally years at this point when she dropped out of the race, we got a bevy of articles. That one of wondrous wondrous candidate she was if she was so wondrous. Why was she so terrible areas? Kamila Harris, smirking as Mike Pence calls out the point, which is that she is actively dissuading people from taking a vaccine that we will meet people to take. The reality is that we're going to have a vaccine senator in record time, an unheard of time in less than a year. We have five companies in phase three clinical trials, and we're right now producing tens of millions of doses, so the fact that you continue to undermine public confidence in the vaccine. If the vaccine emerges during the Trump administration, I think is is unconscionable and Senator I just ask you stop playing politics with people's lives. Okay. He is right about this in common. Harris couldn't stop smirking throughout. Hey, when this goes back to Al Gore is not a sexist point that people shouldn't smirk while they're on split screens, smirking and shaking your head on split screens looks bad. I'm shaking your head ruefully doesn't look bad on a split screen smirking. Looks terrible. Look smug, You know, it's not just Come on, Harris was all of those things. Okay, Then they got to the issue of taxation. So recognize the first like a third of the debate was all about covert and Harris. Basically her line was that Trump knew in late January early February, This thing was airborne. It was dangerous. Even Bob Woodward, who revealed that in his book right that Trump had said that sort of stuff. Even Bob Woodward said publicly interviews. We talked about it at the time. He said. I didn't believe that from knew all that I thought Trump was just bloviating because again, nobody knew that there was not a single doctor, including Fauci, who was saying in early February. The thing was airborne, and that was really dangerous for young people. As it turns out, it is not particularly dangerous to young people. And even now, there is controversy about just how airborne the virus is right. The CDC came out with information suggesting there might be an airborne component to this. The CDC said this, okay, so she relied a lot on Bob Woodward's book for various items of information. But then they moved beyond common. They got into taxes, and here here is where they met really started to go sideways for Harris. To this point, you could say that Harris sort of held her own because uncovered. The fact is that the Trump administration's rhetoric has been bad. And the Trump Administration performance has been pretty good. Because Pence is rhetorically much better than trump, especially this kind of stuff. He made the record look as good as you could make it when you have a president who is doing all the things that that President Trump is doing, then they got to the economy and this is where it all starts to fall apart for Kamila Harris So she starts talking about she starts talking. About the issue of the economy is clip eight. She says that there could not be a more fundamental difference on the issue of the economy and in this particular segment of debate. I mean, this was a car crash. This was an absolute car crash. This was a smart car against a big rig. It just did not go well for Kamila Harris. Here there was hair is trying to go off on Pence's economy. That depends. Trump economy, The trumpets economy, and as you will see, Pence just was not having it. On the issue of the economy think there couldn't be a more fundamental difference between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Joe Biden believes you measure the health and the strength of America's economy based on the health and the strength of the American worker and the American family. On the other hand, you have Donald Trump, who measures the strength of the economy based on how rich people are doing. On day one. Joe Biden will repeal that tax bill. He'll get rid of it.

Okay and then And then, as you'll see, as you'll see Mike Pence, just hand her hat or it's it's you. It's really bad. So, she says again again for the 90th time that the first day Biden is going to repeal Trump's tax cuts. There's only one problem with that. When you say is gonna repeal the tax cuts. As it turns out, you're raising everybody's taxes. Okay, So Kamila Harris suggest that the Trump economy is bad and that Trump only cares about the wealthy and pence just Just destroys her on it. Despite would Senator Harris says the average American family of four had $2000 in savings in taxes. The average household income for a family of four increased by $4000 following President Trump's tax cuts, But America you just heard Senator Harris tell you On day one. Joe Biden's gonna raise your taxes. Okay? And as you and then she starts smirking and you get the Kamila Harris giggle, the weird, strange joker giggly and then she again She knows she's caught every time she's called. She played the I'm a woman. Stop interrupting me card. And she she woman's plane to make pens about how debate is not supposed to be the bait. As long as a woman is there as you find, by the way, all this mansplaining women are victims stuff pretty amusing from a party that suggest that men can be women. Gender is completely a social construct, and women do not exist..

"Oh, to get 20% off your membership with code watch. Okay, so Then we moved to Trump's second line of attack on the second line of attack for Trump is that Joe Biden is corrupt, Right? The Joe Biden has portrayed himself as this nice elderly gentleman who is pure as the driven snow. And that ain't true. Joe Biden has been spending 47 years picking up Little Benny's on the side, which is not uncommon, but it is kind of gross and so by Trump did a good job of redirecting this conversation. So Biden suggested. That Trump and lied to the American people about covert, which again the evidence is just not there for that. Even Bob Woodward didn't really believe that Trump knew that thing was airborne in early February. Nobody the CDC didn't say was airborne intellect. July In any case, Joe Biden suggested that Trump somehow concocted this bizarre Wall Street scheme where he knew the cover is gonna be really bad. And so you told all of this Wall Street, but he's not the American people so they could short sell the market. And Trump came right back at him. Pretty strong. There was the Trump versus Biden Exchange. Didn't want to tell us because he didn't want us to panic. He didn't want us. Americans don't panic. He panicked. But I guess what? In the meantime, we find out the New York Times the other day that, in fact, his folks went to Wall Street and said, This is a really dangerous thing. And a memo out of that meeting not from his administration. But from some of the brokers said Sell short, You know, the one that takes all the money from Wall Street. I don't take it. You have raised a lot of money, tremendous amounts of money. And every time you raise money deals a major, I could raise so much more. Money as president, and it's somebody that knows most of those people I could call the heads of Wall Street, the heads of every company in America. I would blow away every record, but I don't want to do that. Because it puts me in a bad position. And then you bring up Wall Street. You shouldn't be bringing up Wall Street because you're the one that takes the money from Wall Street not make Okay? And Joe Biden looking little awkward there, because that is the fact. I mean, Joe Biden is out raising Trump on Wall Street. Something like 5 to 1. He's out, raising him in Silicon Valley like 99 to 1. So the notion that Joe Biden is somehow not corrupt and that Trump is corrupted regarding Wall Street is a pretty rich one. Can anyone further right then? We finally got to the hunter Biden stuff. Okay, so you knew that Trump was gonna bring this up? He didn't tell the story wonderfully. In fact, some of the stuff that he said was an over was an overestimation of the truth. To put it kindly. That is particularly true in he was talking about business deals in which Hunter engaged. He could have corrected himself is he went on, he said. That went to the Biden family, which is a big way of sort of implying that Joe was involved without overly saying that Joe was involved. At one point. He actually said that Joe had received direct cash from the Russian government. For example, that was not true, but If the goal here was to throw as much mud as possible at Joe Biden in an attempt to get people to be a little bit less enthusiastic about Biden feel like he's just kinda, You know, maybe this was aimed at the Bernie grows a little bit. For Trump Trump did this to Hillary last time, too. It was like she was taken Wall Street speeches and she was a corrupt a crowd and all of this, he did some of the same stuff, too, to Joe Biden. So this this particular conversation started off with Joe Biden, saying that he was going to take on Putin, which is just absurd on its face. I mean, he was part of an administration that overtly Allowed Russia to take over policy making in Syria that allowed Russia to invade Crimea. He's part of the administration that removed some of the defense capabilities of Eastern European countries. He was the Biden Biden. Obama administration was awful with regard to Russia. But here was Joe Biden just lying about that, because he did telling awful analyze everything is going on here about Russia is wanting to make sure that I do not get elected the next crazy United States because they know I know them and they know me. I don't understand why this president is unwilling to take on Putin. Okay again. The Trump administration policy is significantly harsher in Russia than anything Obama ever did. Just one second, we'll get to Trump's counterattack, which again was this line, which is Joe Biden is corrupt. He's a longtime corrupt politician. And the fact checkers are gonna have a field day with some of the claims that Trump made here because again, some of the claims that Trump made here are just not right. The overall implication right which the Trump was trying to make here, which is that the Bidens have been trading on the family name from rich members of my family. That is, that is certainly true. They will get to that in one second. Biden did not really have a good defense for it, and Trump hammered it. Ah lot. We'll get right back into the special best of episode of the Ben Shapiro Show.
