"colin peterson" Discussed on WSJ Opinion: Potomac Watch

"Three to Democrats Jeff Andrew of New Jersey and Colin Peterson of Western. Minnesota voted against both articles. Jared golden of Northern Maine voted against the second article article and Tulsi Gabbard the Presidential Democratic candidate from Hawaii. At least she's still a presidential candidate. Although I don't know after this vote she she voted present twice saying that she could not support. Ousting trump From office in short circuiting the election results but that she did thank president. President trump had Had committed Bad Behavior all Republicans voted against The impeachment treatment. which was the problem? I think for the Democrats the main problem because when they started this is Kim my assumption is that they thought they could peel off a chunk of Republicans and make this. Bipartisan certainly had some of the retiring members those those who members who say they're not going to run for re election in the House in twenty twenty and aren't running for a Senate governor's race so they're free to vote their consciences and none of them. Not One not will hurt of Texas Not Peter King of New York new Jim Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin. One of them voted for impeachment So what do you make of this debate and vote well by the way on the Democratic ploy to get some people to come over or I think it's possible they could have but through their own malfeasance their own way that they decided to run this. It's almost as if they were you. You know making it impossible for Republicans to come along. If they'd have from the beginning. You know held a the traditional type of impeachment process in which both sides were able to call witnesses if they had not held the beginning elements of this in some basement in Congress in secret hearings if they had allowed the presidents attorneys to take part all things that were standard aspects of prior impeachment proceedings. I think some of those Republicans would have been up for grabs Maybe it would have depended on what actually came out but they they poisoned the well from the start with this very very rigged the process and so now they come out of this exactly opposite of what Nancy Pelosi initially said needed to be the grounds for successful impeachment which was strong bipartisan support. The only bipartisan support in this boat. yesterday was Support against impeaching the president. I thought Ah I agree completely with that analysis. Now let's turn to the other side. Kyle look at the Democrats because I was surprised that there weren't at least two or three more. Democrats voting against impeachment out of the thirty or so Democrats who still well hold seats that Donald Trump carried in districts that Donald Trump carried in two thousand sixteen. Because you know you've you I thought a a couple of those might say look. I'm taking a big risk by voting for Ah for impeachment but the the Party discipline held here so I guess you gotTa Give Pelosi Credit read it for for for and she says the Party didn't whip but let me tell you she may not have but the party did right and I mean some of those people bowl May know that they're making a politically bad move Depending on what their districts look like how how. Much trump is popular in their districts But they're doing it on principle and You know they think the president's and behavior was bad they think the call was was not perfect And they WANNA move forward. But I to Kim pinpoints to Kim's point I mean I think it's exactly right that they have I mean one of the most striking about this is how narrow. The articles of impeachment are And how wide the rhetoric is so. It's everything from The Muller report to you know we have to stop president trump before he cheats the twenty twenty election which is essentially what Adam Schiff has now And I mean I think that is is part of explaining what explains the divide here that If they'd gone more narrow they might might have pulled off some Republicans. Well wait a minute. The articles themselves are expressly narrow right abusive. Well they're both narrow and vague okay. They're narrow in the sense that they're focused on one on Ukraine and one is on resisting. How subpoenas it's the rhetoric outside this and in their in their supporting documents that is that is grandiose and says oh they committed bribery? Oh he committed Extortion But those aren't in the articles yes but the it's all one ball of rhetoric and that has the effect of driving any moderate Republicans. Who might have been up for grabs away while at the same time Giving Ping Democrats much more. They can pull from when they go home to explain why they thought I mean they can go home and say you know it wasn't just this Ukraine call it's the totality of all of this even even though that's not what is specifically listed in Article Kim the Jeff Andrew the Democrat from southern New Jersey who has said that or at least has has leaked that he is going to shift party loyalty from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party. Still nominally right now. A Democrat but his staff has resigned and presumably. Because it's bender told them he's GonNa Shift parties after this. This vote. He had opposed the inquiry Along along with Colin Peterson from the start. Even starting an impeachment Probe so the lesson of his turn Kim suggests to me that the the Democrat that that the parties are so split on this that you really have a very hard time voting against impeachment and still surviving having as a Democrat in Congress or anywhere else well exactly and I think. He has intimated as much that he understood that going forward. He'd be Austin and punished as it were for not joining hands with his colleagues and I will say this about Nancy Pelosi. She runs the party with a a a steel fist People who are loyal to her are rewarded with better comedia- sinement People who are not are definitely we left out in the cold and so that by the way gets to your point about whipping. Is that you know Nancy. Pelosi may not have arched into into some of these thirty Democrats offices and wrangled their arm up behind their back But it was clearly made Known to at them that it was going to be very bad for them in their careers if they did not show unity. And there's different ways of of whipping to You know one time sometimes people will come out and say look we can afford to lose seventeen votes here you are. You're cut loose. That message was clearly not transmitted. These is Democrats and instead the message was sent that they better get on board now. Colin Peterson is the other member Democrat. who voted against both articles? He's a something of a special special case Kyle in that. He has been around Congress for something like thirty years. That's Peterson country. Western Minnesota you're from eastern North North Dakota the But for him a vote against impeachment would have meant almost certain in favor of impeachment have been almost certain defeat in twenty twenty. I mean he may be the last Democrat who can hold that district and I mean if he when he retires eventually that will probably flip ride but the other thing to keep in mind too is that it's I mean it is a binary choice yes or no Despite what Tulsi Gabbard she. She clearly thinks differently. Well well I mean so. She is interesting. I mean I think that's interesting thing about this way. Because she had introduced a resolution to censure the President and then ultimately decided she couldn't go either way they she said you know. This is bad behavior on his part but You know I don't think that I can support this gender processes essentially what she said And there are probably a lot of moderate Democrats who in their hearts feel that way to who would have gone for essential resolution if it had been on the table but what what they had was the impeachment. Vote and Do they condone or not. Condone the president's behavior and they they voted to impeach we're talking about The impeachment of President Trump and you're listening to Potomac Quash from the Wall Street Journal from Connecticut to California for Mississippi to Minnesota millions of.

US lawmakers clash over impeachment charges against Trump

"Today. The House Judiciary Committee is marking up. The articles of impeachment in a confrontational televised hearing. Were also learning new details about the inevitable Senate trial early next year. I've got to fantastic guests. Tell me unpack all the news of the day in a few minutes. We'll be talking with White White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks that CNN. Political analyst. April Ryan but I I'm joined by my colleague. CNN producer and reporter the relentless Marshall. Cohen Marshall Thank you so much for being here on the podcast. Thank you David so I want you to hear a little bit of sound from today's hearings now just I said marking up. The what is happening here is actually like the normal legislative process. What you know when When a bill gets introduced in committee it gets marked up that means each side? Has the ability need to make amendments to the bill change it and the committee homes that bill and then passes that to the full House and that is what is happening with these articles of impeachment. Now of course. The Democrats crafted these articles. They're very comfortable with the language and they're trying to change anything. Republicans are being given the opportunity Obviously To be able to slow roll this day make their political points Try to amend the articles but they're outvoted time and time again. procedurally These two articles are likely to be passed out of committee before the day is done and then onto the house floor for a vote next week. But that's the process. Here's the rhetoric I want you to I hear hear from Congresswoman Pramilla Jal of Washington state will any one of my colleagues on the other side. Say that it is an abuse of power to condition aid to condition aid on official acts. We'll forget about president trump. Aw Forget about President. Trump is any one of my colleagues willing to say that it is ever okay for President of the United States of America to invite foreign interference in our elections. Not a single one of you has has said that so far what I heard jibe. How say this Marshall? Today my ears perked up because she was really trying to remove donald trump from the equation and really focus on the fact that Republicans on the hill. Her colleagues on the other side of that day are would from her perspective blindly in lockstep with him no matter what so her her whole arguments here stripped him out of it. Are you okay with this presidential behavior. We've heard from a couple of Republicans. Mike Turner of Ohio will hurt Texas that have indicated the the phone call with Dolinsky that trump's language was not okay. I mean I think Turner used that that exact phrase Mr President. This is not okay yet. He fully does oppose impeachment She wishes it. Was that simple though. You could just strip trump out right hand mant trying to make an argument larger about Republicans here right about being just blindly lockstep with him. But they don't agree with her on the merits of this. Either right she's she said said two things she said trump Conditioned official acts on these favors number one and number two solicited election help from Ukraine crane. Now Democrats are in lockstep. That that's what happened Most outside observers that are acting in good faith would say that that is apparently apparently what happened but the Republicans dispute both of those right they say number one there was no direct proof that trump conditioned the military aid aide on the investigation. And you didn't hear that From anyone not even sunland right. Who said a Gordon Sunland the US ambassador to the U.? You who said that. It was conditioned on the White House invitation but not necessarily the military and then secondly we've been hearing this all day from Republicans today they're not conceding the ground that this was trump soliciting election. Help they're still arguing and they've been doing all day that this was trump trying to crack down down on corruption because Burris MMA The Ukrainian energy company was corrupt. And Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden was involved with these corrupt crooked get actors so problem with the ground. Marshall can you point to all the other places that Donald Trump has made it policy to fight corruption and using Presidential Oval Office meetings meetings and Military aid is a way to accomplish cycle no and the Republicans are acting in bad faith by pushing both of these points it strains credulity ability it it defies logic. It's it's not a good faith. Argument here is perhaps a better argument from the Republicans that I wanted to hear from a Republican Congressman of California in Utah McClintock. His argument is really neither of those things. It is that the president has the ability to set policy here. And what is At core in McClintock's point of view here is all of these witnesses. You've heard from data policy disagreement of the way he was managing the Ukraine relationship relationship and priority. Here's McClintock MR chairman. The constitution introduces the President. With fifteen words. Executive Power shall be vested in a president under the United States of America. It does not vest any authority in Lieutenant colonels the NFC Ambassador State Department officials are Cabinet Secretaries Rotarians the only authority that these officials exercise is delegated to them by the president so all of the criticisms and resentments Johnson personal and political disagreements. That we've heard from those officials are completely irrelevant. I give him some credit there for making a a constitutional to tional argument on the constitutional question of impeachment. Is he right well. The president does get to set the policy but if the the policy is essentially that the United States government should be used to help the re election of Donald J trump then okay. The president sets that policy but it's in his own personal interest. The outcome of that official policy is for his his personal benefit and as Democrats describe it. What you just described is in violation of the Constitution and the oath of office that he swore You know when he became president. That is Nancy Pelosi's ultimate point right when when we discussed this yesterday. Whenever she's pressed on the politics of this she she goes to her oath of office to protect and defend and uphold the constitution and that the president violated that very oath that he also takes? Ah On she's not you know hooting and hollering and making a big show out of this in many ways. It's been very much reluctant march to get here. And and you know I think the strongest proof of that is that when Nancy Pelosi in the Democrats took over in January of this year. They didn't impeach anybody they didn't even they tried to snuff out talk of impeachment and anytime did any of the more Liberal members of their caucus started bringing it up Pelosi's he just shot it down over and over the are largely here. I think it's pretty clear that they are here because they feel like the president forced them to do this that he was so so unconstitutional and so much putting the integrity of our next election at stake that they had to do it period. So where do we go from here. Marshall so These articles get passed out of committee. Today I assume on a party line vote. We have no indication that there's a Democrat on judiciary. WHO's not in favor of these? These articles of impeachment and judiciary is known to be a a more partisan committee of all the committees on on Capitol Hill And then we see action on the House floor Lord but what happens between now and then yeah right so the question is going to be. How many Democrats are going to break ranks and joined the Republicans a few have already stated their opposition? No big surprises there I think that the the same guys that voted against authorizing the inquiry are going to be voting against impeachment number two of those Jeff Andrew of of New Jersey and Colin Peterson of Minnesota. That's right so no big surprise there I don't think that anybody really believes that. Either of these articles of impeachment each mint will get voted down by the house. It seems like there's a They've crossed that threshold based off of where we are right now. That could change but You know is it going to issue going to drop. Is Nancy Pelosi to lose more to this. Point where it's kind of embarrassing and people will sort of get second thoughts and feel like it's limping. Something over to the Senate or will they keep it in the low single digits. Maybe you can count it on one hand and say well it's too bad that we didn't get any Republicans but look we still have a clear majority very few defections and we did our jobs and now we'll kick it over to our colleagues in the upper

"Steve in Fargo, what's on your mind? Hey to comment from the gentleman that wouldn't go on the air. I think interesting, and I know idea whether he's right or not I'd like to believe that he's not, but what frustrates me a little bit. If that if if that's where he's at confident that many of the folks in his industry that way. Why are tougher on the democrat? I'm confident that these policies would work if implemented, but the Democrats want to drag this out, you know, to not give Trump away he said still himself. So you take the courts head whatever that OT, whatever that women's Dame is on the nutjob side of the Democratic Party. He goes against the AFC Pelosi every day, and just whatever she wants to spew Colin Peterson who supposed to be this brilliant. Mainstream pro-gun middle of the road guy. Why does it he every one of his speeches call out vanc- Pelosi to at least on the Mexican Canadian trade deal? Very good point, very, very very, very good point. I mean, Steve no question. Here's the deal for that. Caller in for anybody. What's your alternative? Now. I don't say that in a condescending way. Like, we'll go ahead and pick them and good luck to you. But really, I mean, we've had this mess. He's fixing a mess. So there's going to be paying. In the middle of fixing. There's no doubt. There's no good way to fix the mess. Right. I mean, and so. But if if Amy CIA or Camella, whatever name is Cory goofball, and whatever else whenever they gave his speech and farm country every single farmer in the room should say. Hey, support these terrorists or support that Mexican trivial. Help us out stuff fighting Trump and help America put their seed ad or tractor had on and get up and walk out of the room. Something would happen, but they sit on their hands. And they gotta go. I mean, you can hate Trump. But at least he's trying something and what the Democrats trying we're gonna make sure he's successful that the farmers are getting a really tough stick right now. So you gotta look at full-size crepe point. Steve thanks for the call. Appreciate it. We're gonna go to Harriet North Dakota, Bob, what's on your mind. Robert, I'm in South Dakota. Oh, south anyway. I just wanna know if swan DMC is still a sponsor your program. Absolutely. Yeah. Dell. His a loyal customer than new car buyer them overtime. I thought they were the one of the most popular family warranted. Dealership. Businesses North Dakota. I will no longer be coming back as long as they sponsor you. Thinks that the farmers have to take the full brunt of this tariff deal. Well, no, I'm not saying the full brunt. In fact, there was twelve billion dollars. Eight last time there's twelve billion dollars in aid as recognition of effect that they were taking a hit. And now they're talking about adding it again for next year. I'm asking whether it helped is it's proof that it's a failure. That you guys have to subsidize these farmers now you got proof right there. Soyabean growers. I don't think it's that. I think it's bridging the gap Bob let me ask you this. You think that farmers and ranchers here get a bad deal? Overall trade. No. Are you willing to authorize cool? So you're saying there's nothing to fix. Everything's been great in these trade deals egg always been. Dole. You. Cowl for Toyota's largest anybody today under Obama, and that money, I've got to buy new cars from Schanche longer will be because I believe that they're supporting industry now that is going downhill fast. And if they want to be part of it. Good friends of mine. I can no longer do business with them. Thank you. I have no idea of one's supporting farmers or farm legislation or what their stances on that. So he them. No. I again, I just wish that our friend from South Dakota could recognize that Donald Trump's fixing a mess and Massey created a. I watch some people sell Catalina or taking a hundred thousand dollar hit just because of the Derek now you gonna make it up. Everybody should take small store to finally claim against you to make up the difference. That's what you're advocating. No, advocating balanced trade agreement. I'm advocating Bryce, we wanna price. Well, balanced trade agreement gets you a price. Your your your argument of when you sold is like saying, well, I sold when the stock market was down. So I got ripped off because it later went up. Hello, welcome to markets. Sold cattle for twice as much as they're worth, by the way. I didn't what they were worth. And as far as the stock market. I hope the hell you guys lose your ass to date. Your. The stock market to lose my as I I wish you a little happiness in your life. It's quite obvious you need some. I appreciate the call Travis in my not next on what's on your mind. Go ahead. Hey, good morning. Scott. Just wanted to weigh in a little bit on this business. I'm a farmer in mine. And and I I guess just to summarize I'm with what you say. I think we've you know, they're certainly as paying out here. There's no question. But this mess was created long before now, and we have got to get it straightened out. And it's not gonna be easy. I fully support what Trump's doing. I'm you know, cash is tighter than heck out here right now. And you know, there is pain, but he's he's doing the right thing and he needs support. And I think the the democratic sight of some of these farmers that are calling in is coming out loud and clear. Let's fight fight fight against him. Why not support him? We, you know, we would've prior this trade conversation. There was lots of discussion about something needs to be fixed in our economy period in the farm side. And it is trade. We've got. To this stuff. China has not been buying from us. You know, like they're capable I in the same respect is what we buy from them. And so I just wanted courage people to think about the big picture. Everybody's so doggone shortsighted. Yeah. We're taking the brunt. You know, we got to recognize the fact that the president sees that has been willing to help in the end the for the sake of six in the big picture. So I fully support it. And then I wish farmers would have an open mind, and you're right. Past prior caller does need a little happiness. Sounds a little crabby. But anyway. I think he just got swans a lot of customers thinking, but that's a whole 'nother show. 'em. If p thing I wanna ask you about Trump's before you asked me what you want to mention. And that is the you know that I don't know what that stands for. I forget, but it's the it's the trade from the last round to say farmers dimensions taking the brunt of this. Let's let's cushion this a little bit into dependent on your crop. What you got or whatever. But was that a good mechanism to that help? Well, it's market association program. What it stands for? But it was okay. The pitfalls of it were we had a little drought in our area last year. We didn't raise the Bortles. It was strictly paid on Bush's that you had so those that were hit hardest hit harder again. And then other commodities that were affected, you know, indirectly like canola weren't paid. So I I think that there needs to be a little more focused on you know, that because not everybody is being former yet other commodities are being hit hard. So it needs to be tweaked. If it's continues. It sounds like it's going to it should be tweaked. You're saying there's a little perfect. Okay. But go ahead. I wanted to weigh in on Scott's. You know, it's interesting. And this is this is life. We sometimes we agree with each other. And sometimes we don't but with Luke just calling in prior. I'd have to say that I agree that the Republican party is leaving the Republican party and the conservative principles that exist on the platform aren't being followed. I I'm close with several legislators than and they come back to me just done that, you know, the amount of spending amount of liberalness. There is the goes on. I hear you. I think the the group that is going about it now is not doing it in the right way. But I don't disagree with you that there needs to be more conservative legislature now that takes people being involved, right and holding legislators accountable, and you know, speaking up and going to these forms and everything else, but Travis I hear you thanks for the call more after this. What's up?.

"It is stated policy of this administration and the United States of America to return American astronauts to the moon within the next five years. It's too hard. Too risky to expensive history is written by those who dare to dream big and do the impossible. A big bipartisan majority of the house of representatives today voted to reauthorize the lapsed violence against women act. Big deal, most notably. The Bill included a new provision that expands restrictions on gun purchases. And ownership for people convicted of domestic abuse and stocking on like a lot of votes in the house. It was not party line thirty three Republicans, which is a lot these days voting with every democrat except for Colin Peterson Minnesota to pass it though, the opposition on the GOP side was energetic, and rather hyperbolic MO Brooks going so far as to call the Bill and assault on quote biology, but mostly Republicans were standing foursquare with the array which not surprisingly lobbied desperately behind the scenes against the Bill because it would apply some fairly common sense restrictions gun ownership. Now, we already know that abused women are five times more likely to be. Killed if their abuser owns a gun. A recent analysis found that a majority of mass shootings two thousand nine to twenty seventeen we're related to domestic or family violence and keep in mind. I think this is important. Unlike the proposals to ban those on say, the no fly list from access to firearms the due process complaints. Here are essentially move since the people in question are all people with convictions or please. Now that said it is a big loss for an NRA that is slowly but surely losing its aura of invincibility on big political battles. Although luckily for the gun lobby. There's a Republican majority just waiting in the Senate that will be much much more friendly to the idea that violent and abusive romantic partners should be able to continue to get their hands on guns. But if today's vote shows anything it is that the forces for gun cents or stronger than they have been in years. There is one man who most threatens Donald Trump's reelection chances. And it's not Robert Muller any democratic candidate. It is Drome Powell the chair of the Federal Reserve. That's a man that Trump nominated for that position. Because he literally thought the last fed chair who by the way, it was the first woman ever have the job was too short like physically too short, literally. That's why he fired her but ever since Powell took off as trumpets repeatedly berated and harangued him for raising interest rates actually reports. Trump regards Powell is one of the greatest mistakes of his administration that saying something the Fed's decision to try to put the brakes on the economy in an election year, particularly probably has more to do with whether Trump is reelected than almost any other single factor. So clearly worried about that the president has decided to try to stuff the board with preposterous cronies. I Stephen Moore who is not an economist has been wrong about almost all of his predictions has seventy five thousand dollars. Unpaid taxes was found in contempt of court for shorting his ex wife more than three hundred thousand dollars for alimony child support in the balance of their divorce settlement and also has said he's going to have to learn about the fed on the job. I'm kind of new to this game. Frankly. So I'm going to be on a steeply learning curve myself about how the fed operates how the Federal Reserve makes its decisions, and this is a real exciting opportunity for me. Well, little exciting to learn won't it while you're doing the job..

"The best progressive candidates for congressional races and others and by progressive. I don't mean just someone with a d next to their name. A we do actually vet candidates around here and. And how he Kline does a great job of that. So anyway, how he will be along in. At the bottom of the hour. But first, let's let's get to a bit of the news, shall we? Why? All right. Well, there's been some news this morning. So let's do it live doing live. Sorry. I can get carried away. Sometimes to people familiar with the push with with the push. Oh, said Donald Trump is planning to nominate. I missed the beginning of okay. Let me back up the house today. I should not start in the middle of the page. The house of representatives today. This is big news. Big big big news approved a measure to cut off US support for the Saudi led coalition in Yemen's bloody civil war this in a harsh rebuke of Donald Trump's foreign policy. The vote was two forty seven to one seventy five one Republican voted present. All Democrats voted for the measure, sixteen Republicans joined with them Trump, of course, is expected to veto it which passed again with bipartisan support in the Senate and marks the first time in history that a War Powers resolution will reach the president's desk. Now, this is interesting because the effort was a top priority for House Democrats after they took control in January, by the way, the Bill. This Bill was written by Bernie Sanders. Unders and ro Khanna introduced by Rokon in the house Bernie Sanders in the Senate and again the first time in history both the house and Senate passed a resolution ending aid to an unauthorized war. So oh, it's just glanced over to the YouTube chat room. And I've seen a coal in their ass. What about the new rule Democratic Party passed? No primaries. Funny. You should ask. We'll talk with Howie Klein about that among other things. So stick around we will get to it. I'm the house was busy today. It also totally rebuffed the NRA approved a revamped violence against women act that would expand law enforcement's ability to restrict gun purchases by convicted domestic abusers the vote on. What was once a broadly bipartisan measure I passed in nineteen Ninety-four with to sixty three to one fifty eight. What the NRA did was they got into this mess, hoping to intimidate Republicans and Democrats in Republican-leaning districts and warned. Congress that they would track and publish how they voted. Well, thirty three Republicans bucked the NRA threats and voted with the democratic majority in favor of the legislation. Thirty three among them. Representing Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania who was the sole Republican sponsor of the reauthorization of the violence against women act. One so-called democrat voted against it in case, you are wondering that would be Colin Peterson of Minnesota. He was he was on the wrong side of a vote yesterday to this guy needs to go. Hey voters in Minnesota. Find a primary challenger for Collin Peterson. Yes. That goes against what the D triple C's telling you, you can't do Tim Ryan of Ohio. Who I hear in my ear? He's a congressman sort of a backbencher from Ohio who challenged Nancy Pelosi for speaker and failed. Anyway, he is jumping in to the presidential contest. Yeah. He's going to take on President Trump and twenty twenty that would be Tim Ryan and Eric's wall. Well, in case, you're wondering, you know, the guy who's other job is appearing on cable news, TV he's joining the pack. He will apparently announce his presidential plans in an appearance. Oh, I don't have the date soon with on the late show with Stephen Colbert. Because of course, that's where you announced your presidential bid. Right. Hey, here's big news. Donald Trump flipped again. You know, this time he's backing off on his threat to shut down the US Mexico border. Instead, he's giving Mexico a one who in your warning. And he's threatening to I impose auto tariffs before closing the border. I've got a question for you..

"To me that that would be a winning strategy. I thought that was like a very good chance of. Backfiring. That people said that's an American tradition, and we need to be talking. And you know, whatever else it might be. And then you had like Donald Trump coming back and saying it, I, you know, I'm just going to be showing up whatever. And like the secret services. It can do it fine. And it completely worked like she has stared down Trump completely unblinking Lii, and he is blinking. And there is something interesting in the way that the the two Democrats have been tag teaming this in the way that you know, Chuck Schumer tries to draw Trump out and Goshi it with Republicans and Nancy Pelosi is just been this quite unyielding force who's willing to to tweak Trump and just utterly unafraid of him in a way that very few people. He's dealt with have appeared to be. I've been very impressed by the by the democratic leadership team over the course of this shutdown so far, I think it's it's useful. Also to note that a their compatriots in a sense within the Trump administration have done an extraordinarily poor job of messaging nece where one Trump administration official kind of. Described federal workers coming into work without getting paid is volunteering because they so support the president and Wilbur Ross who's commerce secretary said he doesn't understand why federal workers are using food banks when they should just be taking out loans, and he described you federal workers not having enough cash as a liquidity is to be fair. It is liquidating Chris this is much by thinking guess. Yes. Cr-? Those craziest comment to me. No. The craziest common was when Trump defending Ross said that he thought Ross misspoke. But what he really meant was that you could go down to the grocery store, and they would know you're good for it. And they just wouldn't make you pay for several days. Like, he's like shopping in the nineteen twenties or something. I don't I don't know what he's not even that he's old. But he like he's. Lead to the ongoing question of what Trump thinks a average American does and just an average day. But I you also saw this from Laura Trump talking about how you know, this is a sacrifice for federal employees, but their grandchildren and children will be so grateful, and it's interesting from someone write about, obviously conservatives and conservatism, and it's interesting how the administration that was that pitched itself the most to being speaking to every day, quote, unquote, normal Americans, and when I think people connected to this ministration or people who are supportive of this administration used the term normal. They mean, the white working class Americans living in rust belt states, but it's interesting to see this administration be so bad at messaging to that same group of people while sounding like marie-antoinette that is absolutely true. But also, I mean back to Pelosi, right? I mean when people were talking about newsy policies future in leadership, and she was getting. Criticized I think that the criticisms of her were mostly focused on a thing. That is true. Which is that she is not an incredibly dynamic public communicator. Right. Like, her speeches are not like going into the classics, and she's not the a plus number one person to go on a like two people yell at each other television show, and she's polarizing right? That was the other piece of that it right? But what her supporters were saying the whole time was that she's really good at the job of being a legislative caucus leader. And like, that's what you've seen across us because it's very difficult type situation. Right. Where one thing that happened here is that Colin Peterson who is a veteran House Democrat. He hold down, the Trump, east house district of any district that that Democrats represent he has kind of broken with the party, and you know, said on local talk radio like, yeah. Like, give Trump has wall. Right. And that's. Absolutely the right politics for Peterson and Peterson has been around so long that like there's no way leadership could get him to not do that..

"United States Senate on breaking the shutdown. Thank you. Give us a quick thumbnail of what they are. Neither one of you're gonna pass. Yes. Sure. The one that's performed by leader McConnell, essentially echoes President Trump's plan, which is five point seven billion dollars for border security, including the wall, and then some concessions to Democrats, namely, a three year extension of the DACA program. Participants in the DACA program and also an extension of the TPS recipients. These are individuals who are here and are deemed it's not safe to return to their country of origin. So further protections for them to priorities from the Democrats side of the aisle. There are other things as well, J humanitarian assistance and other things, but it is definitely a compromise proposal foot forward by Donald Trump leader McConnell will put that on the floor. Jay, the other one that's going to be put forward by democrat leadership that is just a two and a half week straight extension of the government. Not. A single dime for new all funding. So essentially, not a compromise proposal is just what they offered in the very beginning. Let's go ahead. And we'd take a couple of calls here. We can the first the broadcast we presume lines up. Who do we have I? Yeah. Let's go right to the phones. Let's go to windy and Ohio on line six, Wendy. Welcome to jaysekulow live. You're on the air. Hi, wendy. Hi, thanks for taking my call. First of all, I just want to say that. I think we as Americans who listen to your show and are just aware of what's going on are thankful for what you do. Because what you're doing matters. Yes. You guys are amazing. Anyway. Second point is I believe many in the middle and the American community desire to have that wall built. And if the president has declared a state of emergency, I know that we're behind him, and I feel many others would be enough. People don't really ask the people in the middle. We only hear about the two extreme sites. But I know that there are a lot of people that support what he's doing. It has been doing and his team and pray for him regularly to Wendy. It's an interesting thing you raise because I think the American people including in the middle also support border security, but also support comprehensive immigration reform that is the sense I get now there's going to be different ways of getting there something like pathway to citizenship. Some don't something that should be a more of a work permit social security number work-permit paying taxes. I made the statement yesterday getting people out of the shadows. I think's important somebody put up on the comments while j you don't understand. They don't want to get out of the the people that are here early. Don't want to get out of the shadows. Because they don't wanna pay taxes, and my response to that is hey what I'm saying is it's no choice. You get out of the shadows. Because you're going to pay taxes just like every other citizen in the United States people that work in the United States. So I think that's part of getting people inculcated into American values. But I do think there's bipartisan support for border security and comprehensive immigration reform. The president said as much there is an. The issue lies with the far left, which is now in control the democrat party, and that financy Pelosi who's been in congress long before the far left. This rise has kowtowed to them. That's how she got her leadership position stopping the progress. Any chance of negotiating what are they holding up? The what's the what's the point of the progressive left the hard left here. What is the point? Ultimately, they believed that the blame goes on the president and hurts have been twenty twenty that all these upset federal workers are mobilized to go further left. They think that they are taking the country further to the left that ultimately, they will excellent says we're gonna go to protect more government workers. We're going to predict the federal bureaucracy. We're gonna go in and do all more government to save. What's what's your view? What you're saying? There is it. Did you share the same? Yeah. I do there's a rift in the democratic caucus j. I mean, Nancy Pelosi is catering to the left in California that she can't negotiate. Jay, this is why Colin Peterson and Steny Hoyer are breaking ranks to some extent because it's still about politics for them. But in their stage, Jay they actually need to come up with a compromise that cater to people like the caller. We just had those callers want.

"Think are going to pass this inquiry opened the government Patricia on Facebook it s an interesting question Democrats completely against any sort of compromise. We're talking about this break to our Facebook periscope bodies. Apparently, they're not so uniformed in their opposition right now. There seems to be a break a to significant breaks a committee chairman and a little bit from anywhere. Let's recap then I wanna play the Delaware. So. Yeah. So I this is this is the committee chairman that he is the head of the house agricultural committee. Remember, this is a democrat would be installed in this position by the leadership. Who is the leader Nancy Pelosi his? It's the chairman Colin Peterson a congressman from Minnesota and the chair of the house agricultural committee said this radio interview, take a listen to this yesterday. Trump the money and the money. Well, God give them the whole thing that he wants and put strings on it. So that you make sure that he puts the wall were needs to be. All right. So that's coming from Colin Peterson chairman of a committee. So Harry, how am I wanna play the Hoyer comment in a moment? But how do you how do you view this? I think we we're starting to see this take painstaking, and it's horrible for the eight hundred thousand employees not getting paid. But there seems to be some breaks starting to happen here. I think you're correct. I think some organic opposition. I like that Nancy Pelosi is rising up within the ranks of Democrats. There are many sensible Democrats in congress. They've been elected by moderate to independent voters. They recognize that their long term viability as politicians has to do with their willingness to compromise. So the Democrats have talked ab-. About compromise. But the democratic leaders including Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer are idiological committed to opposing anything that President Trump supports. So if President Trump a posed the wall, they would likely be in favor of the wall. Yeah. So some of their opposition is idiotic, and it makes little sense. But I think there are an increasing number of sensible Democrats who are willing at least to consider funding the entire wall. I think that's where middle of the road voters. Are you couple that with a bipartisan compromise on DACA and deferred action? And I think you would then have a winning formula that would garner. The support of a majority of Americans. You think there's so much of this is political like not having the president delivered the state of the union as such in the capital? I mean, this is this. This political stuff is getting all it's getting it's getting out of control. It's not good for the country. But let's go ahead. We're gonna take calls. One eight hundred six eight four thirty one ten coal is calling from California online for co welcome to jaysekulow, Nicole. Thanks for taking my call. Sure. Recognize that the Democrats and the left are so opposed to anything that's put forth by the right? And the president. Don't you think that we would be a good time now for the president to just declare the emergency, which we actually have on the southern border humanitarian and. And I think that the I think the president has the constitutional legal authority to issue a national emergency. That is not the preference. The preference still is to get this thing legislatively moved. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I wouldn't blame him if he did decide to do that now. But j I would just tell you that I think his reasoning for continuing to push through the legislature is that he believes this is an emergency that needs a bar bipartisan buying from from the congress. And look if you get a bipartisan buying there's an agreement to perform some priorities on both sides, j it's got a lot more staying power. It's not going to be challenged in court. There's not as much delay. And in the future funding installments they're going to be needed. They're going to be a lot easier to so look we might get to a point where the president has to do that. But I think he is correct. That it would be far preferable to do it this way. And that's why I think he's shown the patients thus far. Yeah. I agree. I think that's exactly right. We're taking what we want to know your reactions. And I think this is important. We want to know how you view it right now, you are audience from all over the country. What do you want the president to? But how do you view the shutdown situation? One eight hundred six eight four thirty one ten we're taking some calls pretty quick here. So we can open line for you. Eight hundred six eight four thirty one ten let's grab enough. Yeah. Just in Washington state online to Justin welcome to Jay segula live. Justin. Hey, thank you for taking my call. I just like to make the shorten suite here. I would just like to say that I think they need to pass this new resolution that the president has put forward it does more for these people than what Democrats are doing for them. They continue to say they want to help these people, but do nothing. They don't want to jump on it. I think the president just needs to. Have that power to? This wall without their help. We've means so you're in favor of a national emergency. If necessary. I fully this is getting ridiculous at this point is a lot of people are getting paid. And it just sickens me about it. But are willing to go on vacations over it? Yeah. Okay. So Harry, we we did a policy broadcasts yesterday which is going to air on our radio broadcasts on Saturday where we really got into this at length, but we've been concerned we think the president is in a position which is already started to offer comprehensive immigration reform. I would go, and I would do really comprehensive immigration reform. I think the president wants to do comprehensive immigration for me, probably the only president that I actually get it done. But I even said yesterday we were talking about on the Pali broadcast if he put DACA, the TSA the temporary posts temporary status and put a work permanent work visas. Green cards social security numbers for the twelve million or eighteen million whatever that number is the people that are here undocumented, if they meet the certain background tests. I don't know if the Democrats come to the table even on that. I don't know how they would not. But I don't think they wanna give the president a win a legacy win which be immigration reform. I think that's precisely correct. So the Democrats often talk a very good game in here. Talking about democratic leaders. Meantime, they are prepared to ignore. For instance, the humanitarian prices, which is literally on our border, a significant number, for instance, of migrants are sexually assaulted there are health issues associated with many of the people in the caravan. There's a change in the composition of migrants, an increasing number of unaccompanied minors along with families, and we have insufficient facilities to deal with them. There's an insufficient number for instance of administrative law judges and border patrol agents. All of these things could be solved as part of a bipartisan compromise in addition to which the Democrats often claim that they're very interested in protecting the status of so-called DACA recipients. But guess what when presented with an actual proposal. I think at the end of the day the democratic. You leaders are prepared to reject it. I think you're a hundred percent, correct. I I hate to say that. And I'm hopeful that we're going to get comprehensive immigration reform. But I think they are digging their heels in, but we'll see let's go take another call before the Brasher Kane in Texas on line four Cain. Welcome to jaysekulow live. You're on the air. Okay. Thanks. President Trump pictures gun really stick to what he ran on the wall. Basis stand behind him where and. You know, maybe around forty five days right birthday. Yeah. And we'd go another couple of weeks now. Okay. Well, it feels like we're heading towards that. Even with the legislative action is starting to take place on Capitol Hill. As we all kind of come to an agreement unless there was some surprise breakthrough. It would have to be shocking. Denny Hoyer statement a couple of weeks is probably right. But with the statement is number two in the house is this. This was this pair Bret Baier on Fox News. I think it's worthless. Short. Well, the let's listen to it because I think it's interesting. For the people who are living in those border states, especially with some barrier that has been constructed would you remove those existing barriers because you say, they don't work. No. They work there. They weren't some places. Whether he obviously they work some places, I think again, it's short, but it to me, then it showing a crack in the leadership. And now you got to committee chairmen, this is hard negotiation. It is the art of the deal, but things are moving. I mean, they're starting to see some cracks yet J. I honestly think that an ideological majority of both the house and the Senate favor of this plan. I really do. And I think studying warriors comments show that but look they're being held hostage to the political winds of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. I think it's really as simple as that. And look I would encourage Senate Democrats who do support this plan instead of just voting against it outright. If you think that you have to how about you offer a counterproposal if you don't think the DACA extensions long enough. How about you offer an amendment to make it permanent or how about you offer an extension to that instead of just voting? No, engage the president who has clearly put a proposal on the table. It's one that you probably agree with your core. Don't play political games. Let's get a solution for the American people J F. They do that. I think a deal would be reach. Yeah. I think so too. All right. Well, let me tell you. What would do.

"Said, no, I want to go there in person and address everybody, would you Steny Hoyer be open to that. Sure. And do you think Nancy Pelosi wouldn't look I I don't know what the discussions have been because so I don't want to say what is one within does even get cable. How you know he is sort of the voice for moderate Democrats in the leadership team, and he is also trying to preserve his own negotiating ability. So because Hoyer is a dealmaker, you know, you've known him for a long time. I've known him for a long time. He's somebody who he he's from sort of the John bainer school, which is let's make deal here. Let's get this done. Let's move on. So if he can hold himself out, and as a somebody for the the White House needs Democrats, they need some Democrats and another one Colin Peterson democratic congressman from Minnesota says look just give them the money like get on with this. It's hurting too many people, you know, if if if the hostage if if the hostage situation has to be resolved by paying off the kidnapper, then pay him off like get it done and from Peterson's point of and by the way, peop- there will be a number of Democrats who join Petersen's chorus in. If this goes on. On much longer. If we get past Friday Friday, they're going to miss another. We're going to have another period missed, and we're going to have all of these people who are, you know, right now, we're talking about refund checks are going to be delayed. We're talking about massive consequences at the TSA. We're talking about all of this stuff that's going on. And they need the the Democrats. There will be a growing number of Democrats who say I don't care what you give him. This has to end right now because people are suffering too much. I agree. And the thing is we're not even debate. We're not even one side's negotiating. I don't care how we got here. And the other side is saying, no. And they're using the same words over and over again hostage-taking temper tantrum. So here's what Collin Peterson said who you just referring to cut six give Trump the money, you know, in the money. We'll give them the whole thing. You know that he wants and put strings on it. So that he you make sure that he puts the the the wall word needs to be. You know? I mean, why are we fighting over this? I mean, it's you know, we're going to build that wall. Anyway of sometime, I hate when guests are sound better than me. But Collin Peterson was on KFI geo and said that he's a democratic congressman from Minnesota. And that's you're referring to. I mean, more people are starting to say things like that. Right. And just as there are more Republicans who are on the other side saying you have you know, we have to just do a deal here. And I think I'm gonna guess that the solution will be smaller not bigger, and that the way that that there's going to be somebody that comes forward the the halfway point between the two positions is I believe three point one billion dollars is in between one point six and five point seven, but I wouldn't have gone into journalism. If I was good at math. And I think that what you're going to see in fairly short order is somebody from the pragmatic school in the house and in the Senate. Those people come together and say here is a essentially a clean CR that increases funding to a median point between the two of your demands. And and makes everybody else eat it. If this if this keeps up too much longer, and you see what's happening with the numbers for the president the pressure on the White House is growing by. The day as the economic consequences pileup, we're talking now about having zero growth in the quarter is the were were economists are warning White House. Economists are warning that we're looking at economic stagnation. The the the real consequences are are mounting and the frustration for normal people in congress for non lizard, people is not neither side has made. A even a gesture toward pragmatic compromise. The White House didn't say okay instead of five point seven. What would you say to five billion even and Nancy Pelosi said one dollar? She didn't say, okay, we're at one point six we'll go up to two point five now, and it's so dumb and the amounts of money are so ridiculously small given how much money this government spending, wastes. I mean, this is just Chris dumbest. This whole thing is the dumbest thing ever. It's impossibly dumb. And but again, it's not about money. It's about. Ride, and it's about twenty twenty. And it's about Trump's belief that if he does that if he does not card a win here. If he does not if he is not able to say, I won I broke the back of these Democrats, I succeeded that his base might Bandon him for twenty twenty and for Nancy Pelosi. The there is a personal benefit here. And that is the moment the shutdown is over she's got to start dealing with her own conference. And some of the more exotic demands that the folks that are gonna make right now, this is this is a fight that keeps everybody busy and distracted. Right. And then soon they're gonna have to get to work. We'll see it's hard to explain Chris remarkably calm about something. That's really hard to figure out. So I think I should let you go now. Although I do think you should weigh in on this Marian Rivera's the first player in the history of baseball to get unanimously elected into Cooperstown. So do you believe that Babe Ruth is angry right now tie Cobb wherever he is. Thank erin. Do you think of is definitely angry because a Panamanian? He's Panamanian, right. Yes. A Panamanian taika a quite a racist. Yes. A great baseball player quite a racist. Tob is angry because tie Cobb is always angry wherever he is Tai. Cobb is angry Babe Ruth is happy. This is a Yankee. And by the way, I'm no Yankee fan not by a long shot. But what a guy and what a great guy. I want a phenomenal player. Did you ever read his book Mariana? Yeah. No, it's called the closer. And by the way, they have a young readers edition for kids kid who likes baseball. It's an amazing book. It's just you just when you're done you have you so much respect for this guy. And who he is is a person in his character. And you you saw the stat. I saw it on Twitter. So I must be true, which is more people have walked on the moon then scored. Mariana Rivera in the postseason. But here's what else you eleven Israeli respect most in a culture in an age where no one knows how to lose. He was just as gracious after the Red Sox series when they had him down dead to rights three. Oh, and the ended up blowing that series, and they broke the curse when he blew the Diamondbacks series after nine eleven he was just as humble and insightful and pleasant as he was recording all those other championships in those other great moments. So the house really beat is defined to your nobody even tries to handle with grace anymore. Right. And be and being a good, man. So it so I think Babe Ruth should have been unanimous because I think Babe Ruth greatest baseball player ever played the game. But I will also I will also say that, you know, character counts and Mariana Rivera is incorrectly. Revered in a steamed by his competitors by his colleagues by sportswriters around the world. And by the record, I'm overtime already. But if Christie. O'brien kill me ever suffered a defeat. You will see us at humbly. So Paul we're undefeated in everything we've tried. Thanks, Chris Yemen back in a moment.

Now, here's the problem. You never heard of Colin Peterson. And neither of I. You never heard of him. He's the chairman of the house agricultural committee. Right. I don't know if we will consider that a big time. He said, I don't know how we get to a deal. The White House hasn't called me when I bring up what I have to say to Democrats. They look at me cross eyed. Just proving that there is a lot of the hate is is bigger than the reality. The reality is, of course, Democrats have always been okay with a barrier there opposed to Donald Trump. And while they're opposed to Donald Trump. They can't get themselves to figure out a way to a barrier. And here comes somebody with a we're going to do it. Anyway. So why not just like control where it goes? And get specific. That's what he's saying. When he's talking about how you know the strings attached. Here's where it's going to be built. And here's what you get for each section. That's a deal that I think the president would say, yes. To by the way. I think the president would say yes to that deal. Because what would it matter if they wanted to do it in some spots that it wasn't as important as others? Now, you've got those spots. Now, you can go back and fight later over the spots. You wanna do you could still declare the national emergency? You've got a whole bunch of options. But it gets you to a yes.

"Another Representative for democrat Antonio Delgado. He's a democrat from New York. He's pushing for a compromise with Donald Trump, there is common ground. According to a local news report. He said, I don't think there's much disagreement on the fact that we do have to figure out how to secure the border. We have to figure out how to correct the course on our immigration system. It's flawed. It's broken. We do need to figure out some concrete way. How to solve the problem and collaborative cooperative way? Absolutely. It means a wall. You could fill out the blanks because that's all he said. There is Representative Ben mcadams democrat from Utah. Even praised the president for his look his latest proposal of the temporary extension for Dhaka lead. Affirmative action for childhood arrivals and the recipients of the temporary protected status in exchange for the wall. Something the president laid out over the weekend. He says, we'll do it. But Nancy won't. So even if political there's a couple of writers air, Rachel blade at Burgess Everett, they're saying it's time to take the president up on the deal.

He is the of the house agricultural committee. He's the chairman he called on his democratic colleagues to give the president funding for the wall. What a change he says, the president may have backed himself into a quarter here, you know. But. I think our side danc- has really got herself back into a quarter. And I don't know how she gets out. I just don't know how she does. This. I told my colleagues the other day a committee chairman so the rule with the other leadership, and I told them you guys are making a mistake. A big mistake. Give Trump the buddy. He continued. I give it the whole thing that he wants it put straits on it. Sure. It's so you you make sure he puts the wall where it needs to be. Why are we fighting over this? We're going to build that wall. Anyway, sub time you, and I know it. He added. We don't want to give them a win dance. He doesn't want to give the bewildered. But some things are inevitable. What do you make of all this? He says we don't want to give Trump a win. But with all that talk. Don't you think they're giving them a win able win? And it sounds like there are.

"Share Nancy Pelosi's view that wall is immoral. Thank depends upon what a wall shoes for whether it's moral or immoral. If it's protecting people, it's moral imprisoning people, and may well be immoral. But that's not the issue. The issue is we want border security. He he was caught by surprise by Nancy Pelosi opinion on state of the union, Steny Hoyer, cut fifteen you think that the president. He said, no, I want to go there in person and address everybody, would you Steny Hoyer be open to that. Sure. Anything Nancy Pelosi? Look, I don't know what the discussions have been because I don't want to say what is one within does even get cable. You know, he is sort of the voice for moderate Democrats in the leadership team, and he is also trying to preserve his own negotiating ability. So because there is a dealmaker you've known him for a long time. I've known him for a long time. He's somebody who he he's from sort of the John bainer school, which is let's make a deal here. Let's get this done. Let's move on. So if he can hold himself out, and as a somebody for the the White House needs Democrats, they need some Democrats and another one Colin Peterson democratic congressman from Minnesota says look just give him the money like get on with this. It's hurting too many people if if if the hostage if if the hostage situation has to be resolved by paying off the kidnapper, then pay him off like get it done and from Peterson's point of and by the way, peop- there will be a number of Democrats who joined Peterson's chorus in. If this goes on. On much longer. If we get past Friday Friday, they're going to miss another. We're going to have another pay period missed, and we're going to have all of these people who are right now. We're talking about a refund checks are going to be delayed. We're talking about massive consequences at the TSA. We're talking about all of this stuff that's going on. And they need to the Democrats. There will be a growing number of Democrats who say I don't care what you give him. This has to end right now because people are suffering too much. I agree. And the thing is we're not even debate. We're not even one side's negotiating. I don't care how we got here. And the other side is saying, no. And they're using the same words over and over again hostage-taking temper tantrum. So here's what Collin Peterson said who you just referring to cut six Trump the money in the money will guide given the whole thing that he wants and put strings on it. So that you make sure that he puts the wall were needs to be. You know? I mean, why are we fighting? No fighting over this. I mean, you know, we're going to build that wall. Anyway, sometime I hate when guests are sound better than me, but count Peterson was on KFI geo and said that he's a democratic congressman for Minnesota. And that you're referring to. I mean, more people are starting to say things like that. Right. And just as there are more Republicans who are on the other side saying you have to we have to just do a deal here. And I think I'm going to guess that the solution will be smaller not bigger, and that the way that that there's going to be somebody that comes forward the the halfway point between the two positions is I believe three point one billion dollars is in between one point six and five point seven, but I wouldn't have gone into journalism. If I was good at math. And I think that what you're going to see in fairly short order is somebody from the pragmatic school in the house, and in the Senate, those people come together and say here is a essentially a clean CR that increases funding to a median point between the two of your demands. And and makes everybody else eat it. If this if this keeps up too much longer, and you see what's happening with the numbers for the president the pressure on the White House is growing by the day as the economic consequences pileup, we're talking now about having zero growth in the quarter is the were were economists are warning White House. Economists are warning that we're looking at economic stagnation. The the the real consequences are are mounting and the frustration for normal people in congress for non lizard, people is neither side has made. A even a gesture toward pragmatic compromise. The White House didn't say okay instead of five point seven. What would you say to five billion even and Nancy Pelosi said one dollar? She didn't say, okay, we're at one point six we'll go up to two point five now, and it's so dumb and the amounts of money are so ridiculously small given how much money this government spending, wastes. I mean, this is just. Chris dumbest. This whole thing is the dumbest thing ever. It's impossibly dumb. And and but again, it's not about money. It's about pride and it's about twenty twenty. And it's about Trump's belief that if he does that if he does not card a win here. If he does not if he is not able to say, I won I broke the back of these Democrats, I succeeded that his base might abandon him for twenty twenty and for Nancy Pelosi. The there is a personal benefit here. And that is the moment to shutdown is over she's got to start dealing with her own conference. And some of the more exotic demands that the folks they were gonna make right now, this is this is a fight that keeps everybody busy and distracted. Right. And then soon they're gonna have to get to work. And we'll see it's hard to explain Chris remarkably calm. About something that's really hard to figure out. So I think I should let you go now. Although I do think you should weigh in on this Mary owner barris the first player in the history of baseball to get unanimously elected into Cooperstown. So do you believe that Babe Ruth is angry right now Tycom wherever he is? Thank aaron. Do you think is definitely angry because a Panamanian? He's Panamanian, right. Yes. Panamanian taika a quite a racist. Yes. A great baseball player quite a racist. Tuykov is angry because tie Cobb is always angry wherever he is Tai. Cobb is angry Babe Ruth is happy. This is a Yankee. And by the way, I'm no Yankee fan not by a long shot. But what a guy and what a great guy won a phenomenal player. Did you ever read his book the Marietta's? Yeah. No, it's called the closer. And by the way, they have a young readers addition for kids if a kid who likes baseball, it's an amazing book. It's just you just when you're done you have you so much respect for this guy. And who he is is a person in his character. And you say you saw the stat I saw it on Twitter. So I must be true, which is more people have walked on the moon than have scored on Marianna Rivera in the postseason eleven. Here's why I respect most in a culture in an age where no one knows how to lose. He. He was just as gracious after the Red Sox series when they had him down dead to rights three. Oh and the ended up blowing that series, and they broke the curse when he blew the Diamondbacks series after nine eleven. He was just as humble and insightful and pleasant as he was recording all those other championships in those other great moments. So how? Beat is defined to your nobody even tries to handle with grace anymore. Right. And being a good, man. So it so I think Babe Ruth should have been unanimous because I think Babe Ruth greatest baseball player ever played the game. But I will also I will also say that character counts and Mariano Rivera is incorrectly, revered and esteemed by his competitors by his colleagues, and by sports writers around the world and for the record. I'm overtime already. But if. Crisci wall. O'brien kill me ever suffers a defeat. You will see us at humbly soap ball were undefeated in everything we tried. Thanks, Chris Yemen. Back in.
