Federal officers Trump sent to Portland teargassed protesters
"We've done a great job in Portland Portland was totally out of control and. They went in and I guess we have many people right now in jail and we very much quelled, and if it starts again, we'll quote it again very easily. It's not hard to do you know what you're doing? That was Donald Trump. On Monday today, a commentator Charlie Pierce wrote a major American city is being softly pinot shade in broad daylight, and if we know one thing, if this president and his administration get away with this, it will only get worse joining us now. Democratic Congressman Blumenauer. He Represents Oregon's third district much of which, or which includes much of Portland. Congressman blue our. Thank you for being with us. The governor of your state said that the. Doesn't solve any problems that escalates the situation and we've been watching police and federal forces and National Guard engage with protesters since May, twenty fifth across this country, and in the vast majority of cases, it has inflamed the situation as opposed to calmed it. Absolutely and that's the case here. Dramatic overreaction! The sort of the storm trooper tactics. Luckily, it is all on video. People can see for a fact that there isn't any large menacing crowd. Riot there's. An innocent relatively at looks like an innocent bystander who rolled a tear gas canister that was thrown his way shot by. Nonlethal weapon fractured his skull. This is outrageous and. Donald Trump knew what he was doing. Maybe he could be helpful, but I think it's a deliberate effort to make the situation worse. They've certainly managed to do that ear important. Donald Trump tweeted about this crossing state lines to incite violence as a federal crime Li- liberal governors and mayors much get must must get much tougher on the federal government is going to step in and do what has to be done, and that includes using the unlimited power of our military and many arrests. This works for some people in his base, but it. It's really not what most people think. The US military's for. Absolutely absolutely and in fact what we've seen here in Portland things have been challenging in the past. Things have been quieted down, but moving in here unlimited force. Things like taking bystanders with people who are not clearly identified of who they are not identified shoving them into unmarked cars and taking them away This is a banana republic. This is something that is not calculated to calm a difficult situation and we don't need it. Our governor, our mayor of the congressional delegation. Has. No interest in having this outside interference with people who are not trained in trying to help keep the peace and instead are inflaming the situation. I, you know the Charlie Pierce used the word Pinochet. and You bring up something that I think is important. You see these these officers I don't know what to call them, because we don't really know entirely who they are. They don't have badges. They don't have names. They could be from different federal. Organizations their cars. They're using unmarked vehicles. We just saw one there on the screen I. If this is a legitimate law enforcement effort, none of that would have to happen. Law Enforcement in this country are supposed to wear badges identify themselves have numbers. The cars say police or national guard or military on them. This is very unusual that it seems to be these the secret of tactics. Absolutely and if you're interested in keeping the peace and helping law enforcement, you would coordinate with the local police with the local authorities. They're not there at our. Invitation. Effort to work with us in a cooperative fashion and things that are recorded on video that people can see for themselves have no place in the streets of America's cities. What do we do about the accountability issue? One of the reasons police have badges that you can identify them. These are these people are mask. They have gas mask on in many cases there in full. Combat Gear You think there's an effort here to escape accountability. Absolutely I mean this is the the operating mode of the trump administration mating responsibility, maybe trying to deflect attention from things that are responsibility dealing with the pandemic crow virus. And instead. Of having an opportunity here for people intervening. In a way that is just it. It's scandalous. We're going to work to try and have legislation that help rain this. Limit. The powers have an investigation to find out what actually happened to blow the cover off their story. Good to see. Thank you for joining US Oregon Congressman Earl Blumenauer who represents the third district which includes much Portland. Thank you for joining me

"No doubt Donald Trump addresses, a polarized nation tonight, and they're already signs of dramatic polarization intention in who is heading to the speech inside the house both sides, featuring guests to make different kinds of points. Trump bringing victims families to draw -tection to crime committed by undocumented immigrants, also bringing a child named Trump who was bullied for his name speaker Pelosi bringing the new president of Planned Parenthood other Democrats bringing undocumented woman who recently worked at Trump's golf course. And at least five transgender servicemembers there he rebuke from Democrats to Trump's executive van meanwhile freshman star doubling down on confrontational politics by bringing the very activists who stepped to Jeff flake over the cavenaugh battle. And says well behaved women really making will be hate women rarely make history. Thank you. You. I'm joined now by congressman Earl Blumenauer who says he is boycotting Trump's speech tonight the second year in a row he done so announcing in a statement that he will skip a speech that he expects to be filled with little more than quote lies deception and divisiveness and back along for the ride adjacent Johnston who may have a question for the congressman let me start here, sir. A lot of people agree with and understand what you're doing. What do you say to critics who argue what why not go in there? One night a year at least and be in the same room and hear each other out or in this case, you hearing him I think it's important not to dignify what should be a very important event for our nation. I've been to twenty state of the union speech is Republican and democrat like whether I agreed or disagreed, but they accorded the respect for the office dignity, and at least tempted to bring this country together. Donald Trump has not done that at all. We've just concluded a six week shutdown that is essentially a temper tantrum on his part inflicting damage on the country and eight hundred thousand federal employees. He has been in a very public argument with his own security officials, disputing what they said on television and in transcripts the man is untethered from the truth. And I think this ritual that he's a part of regardless of what's on the teleprompter. He has demeaned the presidency, and I'm not going to dignify with my presence. What would you like to see given the constitution statement that there is a state of the union, although need not be giving him person? Would you think it would be fitting if the entire hall was affectively empty and he had to address an empty hall? If you convince your colleagues to go along with you. Well, it would be I think fitting, I mean, look at the manufactured crisis. He was being honest. He would admit that the crisis at the. Order is one that he created that we could just treat people, according to the law, not separating families if the border is more secure today than it has been in decades, the notion that he's having this assault on the environment that he picks fights that we don't need to have. And I personally welcome someday him coming clean with the American public earning our trust, and I'll be happy to show up. If he comes clean with the American public. My colleague Jason Johnson is a question congressman, I have a question. So clearly you've been an advocate for marijuana legalization that something you've been pushing through. But the guests that you picked tonight to go in your place is about sort of feeding the hungry. Why did you make that selection for somebody to come in and sit in for you and be at the speech that you don't wanna say. Well, it what the world really kitchen has done and my guest. Nate mcdade's provided five million meals for people in the United States and around the world that are hungry. It illustrates the need that we have. In fact, they gave thousands and thousands of meals to furloughed federal employees who Trump locked out and denied a paycheck. I thought this symbolized that type of America that I believe in. And I think is Representative of what most of my constituents believe in. It's a powerful symbol for what's right about America? Not the division in this court. Well, it's interesting to get your perspective, particularly given the fact that you've attended as you mentioned the state of the union by presence in both parties. And there's a lot of Americans like you or wondering, how do you speak out in protest against some of what this president's done on the flip side, we heard earlier tonight from former colleague years a Republican congressman big support of the president..
