Republican Congressman vs. David C. Smalley
"Let's jump straight in. Because i want to bring our guest in on the conversation immediately. He's a former congressman from virginia's fifth district he's now nc are is chief strategist and author of bigfoot. It's complicated which. I really hope we have time to get into and i really hope. He's still a republican. Let's find out join me in welcoming denver riggleman to the show. Thanks for joining me today. Sir thanks for having me sir. Oh well you heard that with us for the first time it just came out moments ago. What are your thoughts. So i'd like to state as we start here. The president trump reid tweeted a few months ago that the joe biden. Kill seal team six. I think god you're right. No you know. That's and that's what i was when i was listening to that speech after what i heard Down near the white house right before the siege on the capital. In fact that i've been in. Congress have been in the house. And i knew some of those people that spoke like madison call or mo brooks of talked to many times Don jr. meant obviously rudy giuliani I've met obviously and and what i really saw. Their david was absolute Language to incite really. It happened over the months and months and to hear that right now. My my first reaction is not really a politician but as an intelligence officer and something counter-terrorism like somebody's very afraid of the senate trial for impeachment. I thought the same thing Michael came in a few seconds in michael goes. Looks like a hostage video like he looks like he like. It's not really his words. He just feels the need to say these things he had to. I mean you know. The thing is is that his his term does end. I know that there are some people that are still listening to pastures and trucks talking about biblical prophecy that president trump is right now hidden a bunker and mike. Flynn is going to be the next vice president but by the way that's true. I just saw this video two days ago. One hundred eighty five thousand likes david on a facebook video from some dude in a truck saying that you know he's a pastor and had biblical prophecy and he just went through the whole cunanan thing and i just shaking my head about the ridiculousness out there. But he still wants to keep his brand to. He's got to make money. And how's he going to do that. And i think there's a lot of things you need to worry about. And that speech was the copa. That was so too late and show not anything that he said before that very hard to believe men. You're spot on. I mean. I i you know about damn time is the first reaction and then does he even believe the stuff he's saying is the second reaction So late you know so late to the party So that so that my listeners have a little bit background as to why this conversation between the two of us is so important You know you're you're only a former congressman because apparently you weren't conservative enough for your district right you. You lost to someone who was far more conservative and on top of that. I've seen you. I've seen pictures. Anyway of you officiating. Same sex wedding so you don't sound very republican the to us sir. What's going what's going on over there. Why are you so open minded and logical. You know when iran. You know. i've only been. I don't know people know this about me. I was i was a ceo. sell my company in two thousand twelve doing counterterrorism and counterintelligence work. Could you know not. Only that i can. I can go back in time. If i told you the crazy stuff. I've done like we mission plan. The first bombing runs death in afghanistan for nine eleven. that was our squadron. It was me Oman training omanis on. F16 sixteen operations in two thousand and ninety nine. I was on. The romanian serbian border for operation. Allied for trying to stop ethnic cleansing. I've had a hell of a life and that's just the beginning counter idea. Actually our team that was tracking sulejmani and two thousand six two thousand seven so when people saw my resume like this son of a gun never been in politics before when i ran as a republican i was asked to because the my predecessor had to resign because of alcoholism. Which is a little ironic. Since i'm going to stiller. I one on accident one by one. Vote against a christian. Dominion est They called me a baby killing sodomite But i thought if if practicality and i was a good guy team player like in my military days voted independently when i had to I thought i would see that. I care about people more than the career. Because i didn't need the paycheck and sadly after the same sex wedding david conspiracy theory started about me that i was working for soros to turn children into alternative lifestyles by funding schools. To teach that doug gay sex was okay. And that i really started saying cunanan was turning and blossom and this was back in twenty nineteen and since my background is in you tracking isis and al qaeda and disinformation and radicals. I said this also looks like that. We have almost the same type of thing here. We have people that are using language of dehumanisation and antisemitic. Tropes to go after people. And you know it's like a lot my book right. It's about bigfoot belief systems and take over people's lives so really been a hell of a time for me. I never thought that My family we get death threats You know i never you know. I never thought that. I can tell you this. Now that somebody would remove the lug nuts are in them all up on my right front tire at a rally where i came out and felt funny and took it to a shop and look like they tried to hurt me pretty bad so this has been one of my life has been like for the past two years david. And guess what athem you know. This is what they want to bring it. Bring it because i got fifty acres of distillery and i'm a second amendment guy and but i'm also a free thinker and pretty socially libertarian. So i don't know where. I fit bud
Reimagining Our Country
"All right so our first topic. you know. we're not gonna be able to talk about this much longer. Which is a fabulous fabulous thing. Oh boy but we are going to talk about what's happening in terms of white house. Politics for a moment is getting interesting. Yes on tuesday attorney. General william bar finally went against donald trump's lies about the election and told the associated press that there was in fact in no evidence of widespread fraud. In other words. He was telling the truth. Thank you william bar for doing that. Time too far. He's feeling a little like he doesn't owe anything to trump right now. This point because he's on the outs and so he's getting a little Anyway when he did that there was backlash from right wing media and also from trump who is still claiming fraud. One month after the election and who on wednesday night posted a forty six minute speech filled with more lies. It's been reported that donald trump is also considering all these pardons for his children. Don jr. eric ivanka his son-in-law jared kushner as well as his lawyer rudy giuliani. None of them have been charged with any crime. They would have to put on paper. What are the crimes that they have allegedly or not committed in order for there to be a part in as far as i understand so there's a lot of shall we say political chaos that a lot of people are still addicted to but i'm over it. You're over but it's like roman times you know it's like a bad. Pbs like caligula show anyway meanwhile while that is happening and give it up for billy bar finally took him a couple of years but he finally stated facts meanwhile while this is all happening joe biden is forced to stay patient through the chaos and continue with his transition and while i do think this whole trump side show is going to continue even after he leaves office. Maria and i think he already has Whether the big cable news networks are gonna cover him. he'll have the right wing covering him no matter there's this whole question about the future of politics after trump right so we talked about how much black lives matter and the movement for racial justice this year has impacted right the election but then on wednesday former president barack obama and also bestselling author now please suggested movements like de-fund the police are counterproductive. I guess you can use a snappy slogan like defunding police but you know you lost a big audience the minute you say it which makes it a lot less likely that you're actually going to get the changes you want done but if you instead say let's reform the police department. So that everybody is being treated fairly. The divert young people from getting into crime. And if there's a homeless guy can maybe we send a mental health worker there instead of an armed unit that could end up resulting in a tragedy suddenly a whole bunch of folks who might not otherwise. Listen to you are listening to you. So the key is deciding. Do you want to actually get something done. Do you want to feel good among the people yard agree with and if so but here's the thing the way he it. Why did you have to be so dismissive of a move because it comes across as dismissive. Why couldn't you just be a little bit more respectful. I guess why couldn't knee of picked up the phone and had a conversation with angela davis. Okay who in many ways is his political godmother all of ours political godmother's because of her lung jetty and resistance and survival throughout all of this and what. Angela davis says is they weren't aware of all of the problems in the judicial system of the way in which it has been historically used and continues to be used as a weapon of oppression against black people. They wouldn't be so defensive about the whole thing. How can you say that This demonstrate that there is Justice in the american coors when we know that the jails prisons across the country are filled the brand with black and brown people. We know that on death row right now. The vast majority of the prisoners who are going to be executed are people of color. We know that when a black person is picked up from community and brought to jail he's going to have to depend on a public defender because more than likely he won't be able to hire a good lawyer and this public defender. What is he going to do. he's going to tell him to cop a plea even though he knows. And many cases that his client is just as innocent precedes. And so i'm going to try to do now. Is to build the very same kind of movement that was built around me and the kind of movement that liberated from prison and ordered to free more brothers and sisters. Because that's that's a real significance of this victory and

Sen. Chris Coons believes John McCain and John Lewis each left us an urgent message
"Chris coons welcome back to the PODCAST. Great to be on with you again. Jonathan. Let's start with the debate between president trump and vice president biden in Cleveland. You were there in preparation for a column that I wrote about the debate was looking for pictures as saw a picture in our system of you sitting in the audience in a mask and the look on your face even in the mask told a story talk about what it was like being at that debate in also given what we know. Now, what was it like being at the debate? Look it was bad enough with what we knew at the time Chris Wallace is someone I respect as a tough interviewer as a capable moderator. Struck, that from the literal opening sentence president trump was bullying him was insulting the audience was razzing in her racing. The former vice president did not in any way at any moment recognize or respect the rules that he agreed to. For this debate, I've been an elected official. Twenty years have been active in politics thirty. I've been to my share of rough and tumble debates particularly at local campaigns and I've had my share of unconventional onus but that was unbelievable. It was simply awful to sit through the rush the raw force of the negative aggressive insulting interrupting. Energy directed by President Trump at former vice president, Biden and the audience and our country in the world. One of my sons immediately following the debate texted me. They must be cheering in Russia and China the team of us that were out there to do sort of post debate spin rapid response for the Biden campaign were just silent as a group for minutes. Afterwards, it was really hard to endure. So Joe Biden Dr Jill Biden former second lady Joe Biden was about ten feet to my left and Mark Meadows and Don Jr. about ten feet to my right. And it was striking that they all walked in unmasked and sat there without masks through the entire thing even as staff person, I think a staff physician from the Cleveland. Clinic. Came around and try to get them to wear masks and it was striking to me at the time just how sweaty. Read how angry trump seemed through the whole thing. Later, when we learned that he was infected with Covid, nineteen may well have been covered positive for that debate. It added a layer of the and seriousness to the fact that he was literally yelling at Joe Biden for ninety minutes from a few feet away. I. Got Tested twice actually once rapid s one. The PTR test both negative, and then waited and waited hoping in until we got a negative test confirmation for a joe and Joe Biden there's now a covid nineteen outbreak at the White House that has infected I think at last count twenty one people including senators, senior members of the president's team as well as president trump and first lady Melania trump staff. Of the White House reporters and they are still refusing to do even the most minimal contact tracing ordered to publicly embrace a relevant public health standards. So what was already a horrifying experience being in the room for that debate? Then over the next week has sort of turned into a slow rolling horror as the president has made his own covert infection into. A piece of political theater and is now being replayed on cable shows all day a proudly taking off his mask and recording. Then re recording his triumphant reentry still infected to the white. House. I I was gobsmacked at the visual of Marine One swooping in to MED EVAC the president of the United. States to a military hospital then three days later watching this. One swoop back in and take him back to the White House for this cinematic return even though he is infected even though once he climbed all those stairs, you can see him gasping for air you have been in public life for more than twenty years you are on the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee. You travel around the world and talk to world leaders in this statesman position that. You're in how do you even explain this to the world if you can well Jonathan I, you know, I, do think it's important that Joe. Biden Joe Biden and the whole Biden campaign team step back they took down attack ads. They publicly expressed their concern, their prayers for the president first. Lady and their health as did I as did most liberal leaders in our country president trump. Does. Get absolutely world class healthcare. He was whisked by Marine One helicopter from the fortress like White House to a dedicated wing at Walter Reed Army Medical Hospital. There is a dedicated presidential sort of sweet over there and he was treated with a cocktail of the most cutting edge treatments that your average American doesn't even have access to the combination of the widely used disappear with the. Less, widely used steroid that's commonly applied for those who are in some distress and a new monoclonal antibody treatment that's not yet approved for general use and he comes back saying several days later. Oh I feel better than I've ever felt better than twenty years before there's nothing to be afraid of don't let this virus room in your life. He even said that he thinks he's immune. I mean. He is the world's leading source of. About this pandemic and has inspired imitators from the president of Brazil to things said and done by Putin who declared that he had a effective vaccine before there was any stage three clinical trials, donner results released.
Trump gets experimental drug aimed at curbing severe illness
"Spending his first night in hospital after being diagnosed with covert 19. The White House said that Mr Trump would continue to work using a special accommodation. Sweet. His deputy Mike Pence, will not assume any presidential duties. Well. The U. S presidential election has been thrown disarray following the announcement of the president's positive diagnosis at 74 years of age and also being obese. The president is at higher risk of serious complications from the disease. He's admission to the Walter Reed Military Hospital in Washington, where he'll undergo medical tests has been described as a precautionary measure. In a video on Twitter, the president thank everybody for their support. I want to thank everybody for the tremendous support. I'm going too watery hospital. I think I'm doing very well. But we're going to make sure that things work out. The first lady is doing very well. So thank you very much. I appreciate it. I will never forget. Thank you. In a statement, His doctor said he'd been given rendez severe a drug designed to prevent lung shut down. Mr Trump is currently not needing supplementary oxygen. Well before being airlifted to hospital. President Trump received an experimental drug to attack the virus. It's a synthetic antibody cocktail, which hasn't yet being tested on a large scale manufactured by the biotech firm Re general. Craig Spencer is an E R doctor in New York and raised these questions about the use of the medication. We hope that it works. It seems quite promising. It does seem a little strange. I think that many people, including myself to be trying an experiment, experimental medication on the president, but at the same time You know, we want to make sure of course, that the president is well it's early in his illness, so I don't think it's completely unreasonable. A lot of it would depend on the actual symptoms of president is having The disease course and really confrontation with his physicians to know whether or not this was a Dr Craig Spencer will. The BBC's Peter Bose gave me the latest on the president and his current state of health. We know that the president's Twitter feed is active again. President from tweeting from his hospital at 11 30 in the evening on It was a short, Tootie said Going well, I think thank you to all Love on DH. We've also heard from his doctor in the last few hours with a similar message that the president, he says he's doing very well not requiring any oxygen. But, he says in consultation with the specialists of the hospital, they have decided to initiate severe, which is the anti viral medication that we've heard quite a lot about. Over recent months that shone some promising results in helping patients get over the virus, especially if it's administered during the early stages. He, of course, walked to the helicopter before he was then transported to hospital on part of that, presumably was about sending out a signal to the American people. Clearly it wass. This happened after I think this is significant after the markets had closed in the U. S. I think it has happened before then it would have sent jitters air around the financial Community would already seen that over the previous 24 hours. But yes, I think it was staged Managed. We saw some short footage didn't take very long for president. Want to get into his helicopter. He was talking about a 10 minute ride to the hospital, and we saw him emerge. He walked himself is dressed in his suit. It looked like the president Trump that we're used to seeing on DH. What we've heard since he entered the hospital seems to reflect that that he's doing all right. Although we understand he is Suffering from some of the early stage symptoms. The mild symptoms that we've heard about in relation to many of the people who have suffered from this virus and assuming he stays reasonably well. The plan is for him to continue working while he's in hospital. Yes, He's in a suite on executive suite in the hospital that is designed for situations like this. They've treated presidents in the past. So he has a ll the apparently all the paraphernalia there for a president to operate it in terms of security needs and the communication Needs it. We are told that the possibility is there for him to continue working, and significantly, he is still in control. He is still running the country and the White House has been at pains to point out that the husband in any way Transition of power to Mike Pence. The vice president, which would happen if the president was so sick that he couldn't carry out his duties. In the meantime, off course we are in the middle ofthe on election campaign. Where does that go amidst All this? That's the big question. We've also, interestingly heard in the last few hours. That's the Trump campaign manager. Bill Stepien has positive Testa's wealth that perhaps the most interesting thing that I've learned in the last couple of hours. Is that the complain plans to launch surrogates or stand ins for in person events. In other words, those close to President Trump will be standing in at events. We can only assume that will be similar to some of the rallies that we've seen the president holding in recent weeks, and those people include the vice President, Mike Pence.

Reporter Jeffrey Goldberg Addresses Trump’s “Loser” Remarks, Talks Using Anonymous Sources
"It has been a rough Labor Day weekend and the trump. White House where officials are absolutely full out freaking out about Thursday. Night's report in the Atlantic that trump had characterized Americans who died in war losers and suckers trump has spent the past four days repeatedly nine the story marshalling all kinds of people to. Come forward to knock it down he insisted today the quote an animal would say thing that the White House trotted out figures like Sarah Sanders who we know is lied to reporters multiple times to claim the report isn't true because they were there when trump didn't say the terrible things he allegedly said take they're hoping you don't think about that formulation too much. The main problem for the White House here is that the evidence supporting the story is pretty obvious and clear and almost overwhelming to anyone not inside the trump reality distortion bubble. The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg reported that trump cancelled a visit to an American military cemetery near Paris back in two thousand eighteen partially because he worried his hair would become disheveled in the rain and partially because he did not respect the American war dead interred there. In a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the schedule visit trump said, why should I go to that cemetery? It's filled with losers in a separate conversation on the same trip trump preferred to the more than eighteen hundred marines who lost their lives at Bellawood as suckers for getting killed. Now, the sources in the story are anonymous you know anonymous sources are not as. Good. As name sources when you're evaluating something, but it doesn't mean that the claims came in on some anonymous tip line that no one knows where they came from. It means a reporter in this case, Jeffrey Goldberg spoke to people directly interviewed them and has agreed not to identify them in the story Jeffrey. Goldberg, will be here with me to talk about that in just a moment. His initial story has now been confirmed in part or in its entirety by reporters at. All okay. Remarkably a correspondent at Fox News included in that lineup whom trump promptly called on the network to fire. Some of those corroborating stories included even more damning details about the president like this one from the Washington Post quote the president told senior advisors that he didn't understand why the US government plays such value on finding soldiers missing in action because they had performed poorly and gotten caught and deserve what they got and this from the New York Times people familiar Mr Trump's private conversations saying he has long scorned those who served in Vietnam as being too dumb to have gotten out of it as he did through medical diagnosis of bone spurs in his heels. Back in two thousand, nineteen trump's former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen testified the trump admitted to faking those bonds first telling cone quote you think I'm stupid I wasn't going to Vietnam. There's even more evidence that trump view soldiers at stupid or suckers Mary trump the president's knees wrote in a recent book that trump and threatened to disown his eldest son if don Jr. joined the military. She also says that her own Father Fred trump junior was mocked by donald trump because he fred trump junior decided to join the US air. National. Guard quote my father was frequently ridiculed for his career choices and disparaged for serving our country by both his father and by his brother Donald. Then, there's the fact that pretty much none of trump's top military officials past and present are backing the president up. I mean you really can't find anyone who's stepping forward to defend his character save he would never say anything like that they aren't disputing the story instead that's been left talking heads and former flax and loyalists. That's maybe not a huge surprise because trump allegedly said about all US servicemembers, hues very closely to what he said back in two thousand fifteen about one particular veteran Senator John McCain. War here or euro he's a war hero years he's a war hero presumes captured. I like people that weren't captured. Okay I hate to. John. McCain was prisoner of war in Vietnam for five years host. Donald Trump avoided that war had a different experience in an interview in the nineties. He characterized his efforts to avoid transmitted diseases while sleeping with numerous women as quote, my personal Vietnam. An. Event with Union members today Joe Biden lambasted the president's comments an invoked zone Sun Beau who served in Iraq and then died from a brain tumor in two thousand fifteen. Those of served. Risk, their lives even gave their lives, our nation losers suckers. He's our heroes. Tell you something. My Bowl wasn't loser. For A sucker if that's I, talk about our veterans, you have no business being president of the United States of America. What's being entered into the record here to take a step back and look at all the evidence about Donald Trump. Shocking. Morally offensive. It's not surprising. It's about what we have come to expect. But. One big question that keeps pulling on my shoulders. Why are we learning about this now? What does it mean that we are? For more on that and the fallout from his incredible reporting joined by Jeffrey Goldberg He's the Editor in chief of the Atlantic and I jeff, maybe I start a little bit with. The reaction to this story from the White House you. There are stories that come out all the time about the president that are fairly scandalous incredibly scandalous. And one time they said it's fake news and they swatted away or the new cycle moved on, they do seem particularly freaked out. About this reporting. An particularly intent on attacking it what what is your sort of reading of the last three or four days of their reaction? Well he's a good question. First thing I would say is that. This is not an attack on these are not reports of an attack on site immigrants or black people or or something like that we expect from Donald Trump and something that his base might actually help him with his base. This could hurt him with his with his base You know the the the second thing is I. Think there's a lot of. Nervousness in the White House and again I won't I'm not commenting on anything having to do with my sourcing or other reporter's saw sourcing Fox. Washington Post whatever. I'm you know there's a there's a deep hostility and mistrust in the White House of. Current and former generals people who lead the military. We saw that today Donald Trump did something that I. I've never seen before he attacked his own a service chiefs. He attacked his own leaders of the Armed Forces on call? Them. I mean, even in the even in this sort of an Tasma, we are twenty twenty race that's still something but I think it has to do with the fact that This is the kind of accusation that sounds believable in also goes directly to. A core constituency that Donald trump obviously needs to Keep energized come November. Yeah we we should note that there's there's been polling of of active duty servicemembers in which he's he's underwater with them There's been an interesting sort of officer enlisted split, but he's been losing ground even with a enlisted members. He's gone for a net positive nine points and Net net net negative twelve points. You can see that there. That's the latest military times pulling. You just mentioned what he said today was pretty remarkable. Briefly, sort of like channeling kind of like left anti-imperialism vis-a-vis his own service chiefs although it's completely like made up and fabricated because he. In the next breath, he's constantly bragging about how big the Pentagon budget is and how Raytheon is making off like a bandit. So but I wanNA play that clip just to get your response to it take a listen to what he said. I'm not saying that military in love with me to soldiers are the top people in the Pentagon probably aren't because they want to do nothing but fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and everything else they. Happy. But we're getting out of the endless wars you know how we're doing. But here's the thing Jeff. They're not this drives me insane the where we have expanded our footprint, we've expanded bombings all the theaters, and this is an absolute con-. This idea that the Great Antiwar Donald Trump has some revolt on his hands on the generals. As, you will know the generals are usually more hesitant to go to war than not usually often more has to go to war than than civilian leaders for some obvious reasons. No, this was remarkable i. mean he sort of channeling. Start Sixty Bob Dylan lyrics here I pointed out on a show media today it's It's quite remarkable given that tomorrow there's a pretty good chance that he'll brag about how much money he's spending on military hardware, and of course, as you know, he's deeply transactional in love it when when foreign countries by our military equipment. So if you're looking for consistency in that particular clip, you're you're looking forward it in the wrong place it doesn't make sense in any kind of traditional understanding of of politics.

"So important since literally I feel like I'm the only person in America you perhaps with me actually highlighting these things. Against the mainstream media complex that David and Goliath I mean these are billion dollar companies pushing a narrative jiming down your throat spoon feeding into all day even though it's ally not telling the counterpoint even remotely when I when I love this book is that you challenge the premise, a lot of these conservative circles that we both run in I hear from even media. People on the radio and on television essay will Joe Biden's harmless and you say know your baseline is not harmless is that he's actually in more harmful because more people will vote for him. Thinking the policies are different than what they actually are. So that's the thing. He's not a candidate. He's a vessel for the radical left. He's like camouflage for the radical left. To push their agenda under the guise of it being a modern platform. But if you go through that Biden Sanders joint unity platform I'd like I said it's literally like the Communist Manifesto for the new age it should scare all of us. It will dress our economy into the ground. It will drive already stress systems whether that be education or health gardening into the Ground any will destroy. So of the American dream to a point where it's probably irreparable, you take that with some of the radical ideas of the left whether it's stacking courts statehood for DC statehood for Puerto. Rico that they get control of the Senate with another four senators and you have a fifty year power shift where you'd never have you'd probably never get it back. You'd never get the Supreme Court back. You never get the Senate back and that's how they would implement their Marxist ideology in this and destroy it in the process. So the titles liberal privilege and encourage check it out. Now don new grew up in New York you spend a Lotta time around liberals not around leftists. Can you talk about how your upbringing how you have seen what used to be called liberal now turn into just a radical insurrection. This is very helpful for a lot of our younger listeners who sometimes conflict terms because you you grew up around what would be called as liberal America, but that's not what's happening right now. Now, and it's beyond that I mean I think you know if you looked at John F Kennedy today a hero of the left he would be considered. All right. You know he'd be a Neo Nazi according to the left today You know this isn't your grandfather's Democrat Party this isn't the party that represents working class Americans anymore, and you don't believe just look at their platform. It literally spend more time focusing on helping people who are here illegally. Then it does actually American citizens look at what's going on into some of the you know. The the bills over the last couple of months. Corona virus. I mean Nancy Pelosi is sitting there fighting for billionaires and millionaires to get their salt deductions your back. But when my father says, Hey, I want to implement a payroll tax to put dollars back into America's wallets meaning your taxpayer dollars we want to give them back to you. She wants to give it back to billionaires I'd. Probably costs me six figures a year, but I wanted to go to the American people they need it right now it's their money and that's where government gets conflicted these radicals it's government money is no, it's not it's taxpayer money, and so I've seen that I mean again I grew up plays I've always been conservative but I grew at a place.

This episode of the Charlotte Kirk Show I am joined by my friend Donald Trump junior who has an incredible new book out Liberal Privilege Joe Biden and the Democrats Defence of the indefensible don welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show and tell us about why you wrote this book and the significance for this book heading into this very important election. Well a couple of. Charlie. Such a big part of the triggered and even the book tour and everything that I had no intention of writing another book. It was sort one of the unintended consequences really of the quarantine. Right. When we were in lockdown I started writing this book and I decided to self publish because if that would've lasted two, three, four, five weeks, I wouldn't have had. Time to finish but with four months, I just started looking I was at home. You can't go to work. You couldn't go to church. You couldn't do anything. So I'm logged at my house and there's much fun as Keiji is you had to do a little bit of work to it. Wasn't it wasn't just pleasure and I started looking and researching Joe. Biden. And I was just astounded how much stuff is out there about Joe Biden, and that literally no one in the media is talking about I mean just refused to even acknowledge I mean these are things that would be totally disqualifying to trump or any conservative Joe Biden it's as though they never happened and I, said, fifty years is a long time. The non have a record I mean that's half a century. You know sort of my line from the Convention speech was you know? He's the Loch ness monster of the swamp and it's true and liberal privileges exactly that right it's the ability to have. Flops through your entire career it, it's the ability to have failure. It's the ability to destroy the American manufacturing American jobs the middle class and be able to run on that platform as your magically going to now save it despite having spent fifty years, destroying it and not being held accountable not being called out by mainstream media and that you and I have spoken about many times. Charlie have just totally abdicated their responsibility to inform the American people to be activists for the far left I. Mean I know we've been the recipients over there. I on more than a few occasions but that's what it is. So I go through Joe Biden's voting record the. NAFTA TPP China permanent status in the World Trade.

Be President and again if Donald Trump mispronounces a complicated name, you know every tell us psychologist America's on TV saying he's in the later stages of Alzheimer's and Dementia Joe Biden can't remember where he is most of the time.

Bipartisan Senate Report Shows 2016 Trump, Russia Collusion
"The news Do. You guys remember when the big question on everyone's mind was did donald trump colluded with Russia during the two thousand sixteen campaign remember it was all anyone talked about and then trump lead one, hundred and seventy thousand Americans die on his watch and we moved onto that. Well, it turns out the US. Senate had not completely forgotten about it and yesterday they dropped a bombshell report. A New Senate report says members of the 2016 trump campaign were eager. To accept help from Russia some of a directed personally by Vladimir Putin the Republican led Senate Intelligence Committee releasing its final report declaring two thousand sixteen trump campaign had repeated contacts with Russian operatives, Paul Manafort? The former trump campaign co-chairman. It goes further than the Muller reports saying he was in close touch with a Russian intelligence officer who became a business partner. It says manafort posed a grave counter intelligence threat. The report says he may even have been connected. To Russia's hacking and leaking Hillary Clinton campaign emails, an operation it says was actually directed by Russian. President. Putin. The three year investigation also found that president trump may have misled special counsel Robert Muller One of the other headlines is that this committee actually made criminal referrals in June of last year in two thousand, nineteen to federal prosecutors on the list of referrals, Steve Bannon Jared Kushner, and Donald Trump Junior. That's right. The Republican led Republican led Senate committee. Referred Steve, Bannon, Jared Kushner, and Don Jr. for criminal charges for lying under oath, and this is good news for Eric. When you the least favorite child, you get left out of all the family traditions, even the criminal ones basically, this Senate investigation found that the trump campaign's contacts, with Russia, during the two thousand, sixteen election posed a threat to national security, and the interesting thing about this report is that it's bipartisan with policies agree on the facts but. Each party came to a different conclusion about whether the facts meant that there was no collusion. And I will say it's always weird to see the same set of facts that are interpreted that differently it kind of reminds me of how two different guys will have different stories about how they fight went down you'll. That guy in the face and he was down on the ground lights out man. So Dude, I told that guy get on my face and then I took a nap on the

"So done I kind of want to ask you some news of the day in the couple minutes. We have remaining. What do you make of this entire Democrat field? And you've known Mike Bloomberg and kind of his whole machine if you will for years you being growing up in New York. Both your family's obviously came in contact with each other. What are we supposed to make this? What do you know about Mike Bloomberg that the country needs to know the reality? I guess you know talking to another sort of mutual friend of my father's and his this is a case study of whether you can just buy the presidency or not you see him. I mean I'm getting hit up and obviously I have a big presence on social media Probably one of the most engaged people from the right You know and all of these things I mean the influencers that Mike Bloomberg is paying literally are demanding meeting like hey listen. I'm getting these offers sort of how I make my living. I really don't want to do it for them. But it is how I make my living. Can you guys do this? And try to match this. Y- they're literally going around trying to make him cool it. You see the reaction he gets from others. You see the commentary about the stop and Frisk like you see the way he looks at people more importantly and again stop and Frisk has been the controversy of the week and honestly I. I almost don't even care what your opinion is on the policy. But the way that he spoke about minorities in those communities you could hear he doesn't think of them as human that he was talking about that subject. You take the kids you throw up against the wall. You put all the cops in those neighborhoods. You don't do anything about that. You Know Oh you you want to know what a criminal looks like. It says dear rocks copy. You know minorities between eighteen and thirty five. That's what a criminal looks like. He doesn't think people as Human I. It's why someone can literally go up to. It might be trolling him and he doesn't even realize he's being trolled. But when you have two billion I mean think about that you know. He's willing to spend to bill. He doesn't have to take the time the energy to go raise money from people. He doesn't have to create. Hire the best people and just literally say we'll give you whatever you want. He's done that. Whatever you need. Go Get out there trying to make me cool. Try to do this. And so this guy this other sort of billionaire. That does both like it. It is really a case. Study to see if you can spend enough money to buy and manipulate the American people. Because he can't do it with his personality the one thing he loves by his personality but he can try to create one online by paying people a lot of money by overpaying. It like think of what? He's spent the best far to not have any delegates he's literally spent almost as much probably already did not have a delegate as we did to win the actual presidency. He's spent ten x what the other Democrats have done and like you and I both casinos. Because we're on the roadway like fundraising and raising money is the most time consuming and hardest part of that job. Just say you know what we just bypass that I'll stroke a check so there's great irony that you know. This guy is now going to be a one of the leaders of the Democrat billionaire. Who is a Republican? Then in in the and then he's flip flopped on every issue is now going to spend whatever it takes to drive for policies that may or may not actually do anything to the Democrat base. He will then spend billions to manipulate said voter into voting for him to stop trump. Who's actually done incredible things to benefit all Americans I I mean I'm looking at distance. Sort of laughing right. You have an old super rich White Guy. Who was you know? Flip flopped between parties for decades has said that if trump said in again not policy the way he said them. It would be over in terms of the racist dialogue. You know over and over again. And it's like got the leader of the Democrat Party like what the Hell is going on with that party and it sort of mind blowing but you know I guess maybe when you look at the other options. Maybe that's the best you got. But like the the one thing I'll say is look Bernie whether you agree with the policies or not like he actually has a real his people that actually believe in him and I think that means more than the money meaning. Hillary spent what four or five times? What we spent last time around has the best team the BASS experts the greatest this that and the other because there was a shoe in and I don't know we did pretty good. You know we we will you. The reality is I would actually take sort of a real following as opposed to a following any day You know well. Enron Boeing is showing that. Really when you're paying someone twenty bucks an hour to go knock on doors. I'm here for my gloom or why I don't know the burning supporter. But they're paying me twenty bucks an hour so I'll do it if a little different than engaging you know. Hundreds of thousands of people are like. I'm here because I believe in this and I'm not getting paid to do it. That such important point and it's it might Bloomberg is the opposite of the Maga doctrine and to a to a lazy onlooker or journalists. They might say oh. It's the same. It's billionaire Mike Bloomberg Billionaire Donald Trump everything Mike Bloomberg stands for is a globalist pro China. Anti-american open border anti-constitution agenda everything. We haven't even gotten there yet. But look at his comments on China. I mean literally pro anti US look at the comments about Russia and the Ukraine. I mean he's. He's literally taking the approach that the Democrats have been complaining about for the last eight weeks nine weeks. Put it like during the their hoax. Like you know your his guy can like okay well. He's got a lot of money and maybe he can beat trump. So we're just GONNA ask. What does that say about the Democrat Party and what they really believe like they don't have an actual thought leader day. They're just like oh whatever anything but trump so okay we will put by and put aside all of our actual all of these things to elect the guy that ran for mayor of New York Republican Bob. It's insane but but they do it. They have no backbone. They will do it because they'll do whatever they can. Describe Bernie they. They're they're truly. Aren't you know? Suffering from trump derangement syndrome completely and ideas are so dangerous and corrosive to our country. And Your father did not. It's almost like Mike. Bloomberg is forcing himself into the race. Your father ran and announced and from the moment he went down. That escalator was met with a grassroots fire. Populist Good Sil- nationalist enthusiasm. That has not stopped. Mike Bloomberg has spent three hundred fifty million dollars and he can draw maybe thirty people to an event. There's no spirit. There's no energy your father was a vessel for forgotten. America Mike Bloomberg is a plutocratic on vanity mission trying to preserve his legacy or just trying to find the common touch that he might not live forever with his. You know pseudo media empire that he's created it's completely two completely different things and so don last question. I got is kind of going into this. Now that we see an actual socialist that is going to be the nominee maybe the nominee of the party. I should say we don't know might be Bloomberg. Might Be Bernie. I don't think it's going to be Biden's when you call that. For a while Biden remember what state he's in fifty percent of the time like Donald trump mix up Iowa and Ohio. One they say he has dementia. He totally locked it. I mean Joe Biden and mix it up. Oh Ohio on a daily basis and it's like Oh that's totally totally fine. There's nothing corrupt about him. Taking billions of the family getting all these government contracts that if trump actually was doing I you know carpet under get an interesting sort of threat. Unders basically mega-guys finding literally is everything that the less claims. Donald trump is right that they're totally wrong about. He's not particularly bright. He's not gonNA stop. He's got all these weird corruption get. They've got a kid taking millions from corrupt regimes and like influencing government and using his publicly funded office to to Leech off and live in incredible life. Like Joe Biden is all of the things they say about our family that we're literally not doing any of the irony is so incredible but that's the way it's like. Hey it's all up in the air but I just don't think they're gonNa let Bernie Habit and I think again the last time. They gave us a candidate that had no real following but whose turn it was or had no real following but had a lot of money it worked out great for us so I really want the DNC to use their intimate wisdom To help take a candidate for an electorate that they're clearly out of touch with because every time they do it seems to really worked to our benefit completely and look there might be some funny business behind Bernie Sanders. Who knows. I mean they might not let this guy get the nomination at all in in even if he gets the most amount of delegates like I said. Hey I saw it in eighteen. This time four years ago we still had zero percent chance of winning and it was a flash in the PAN monthly. I don't know there's thousands of people showing up every day you know in random lasers in small towns across like Bernie has got the same thing you know. I don't I don't WanNa take that lightly I mean you know all else being equal. Would I rather run against Bernie or Bloomberg right now? It's like I you know I sort of want six months. One on one with Bloomberg his policies start coming out as starts doing as you start going back to his history like you know on paper. Come on you know. They'll say well. He's a billionaire it's fine. So trump trump became a billionaire building building putting people to work construction guys blue collar America Bloomberg. Did it with computer. Engineers and programmers. You know if the president but trump actually has a pulse of real people. Because he's been dealing with them his whole life and that's something you know. The retail component of politics You're not GONNA you know I. It's the hardest aspect of it. It's one thing you really can't buy and do well if you don't have it naturally and you know it's still a really big part of this game. Though you know we we will test to see how many billions it takes to sort of chip into the you know very obvious advantage. That trump has versus. You know Bloomberg yeslam completely. Well done thanks so much man for for coming on here and thanks for right in the forward to the book. Maga- doctrine super greatly appreciated. And I think we're in a good place you know. I'm trying to tell people not to be too cocky but I think our movement is stronger than ever got a lot of work to do though and everyone listening you know has Has got to buckle up.

Mitt Romney breaks with GOP and votes to remove Trump from office
"You believe that Donald Trump is is unfit to serve as president and should be removed from office. I do believe he should be removed from office. That's the vote that I will take an in just a short while if this means the end of your our political career broad shoulders to be able to to whether personal changes in my in my career political or otherwise. But what I don't have is the capacity to ignore my conscience the first time in American history sitting. US Senator voted to convict and remove president of his own party. Republican Senator Mitt Romney Utah Shocked. I gotta say just about everyone me as much as anyone without announcement and vote today before he did that before he decided trump was guilty of abuse the power given interviews the Atlantic's McKay coppins talking about his rationale. He said that this is the last place he wanted to find himself quote. I did not want to get here. In fact. He said that heard the reason he wanted. Former national security adviser John Bolton to testify about what president trump had told him was quote. I had the hope that Bolton would be able to say something it's to create reasonable doubt so I wouldn't have to vote to convict to talk more about Senator Romney's vote to android with a guy who got that big interview. McKay coppins staffer of the Atlantic and Neil Cacho former acting solicitor. Sir General in the Obama Administration who co-authored an opinion piece in the Times today titled This will come back to haunt trump and his enablers. Kayla me start with you a remarkable ccable moment in politics often. We don't surprise us because it's like well everyone's GonNa just do. What the partisan incense here? What was your sense of talking to him about what this meant and how he got there you know? I have to say that when I was told by his office that he was willing to talk to me yesterday and that he would reveal his vote. I went there with the assumption that he would probably be telling me he was gonNA vote to acquit. That wasn't to say I was. I wasn't open to the possibility. Maybe I think I actually said on your show last fall that I thought of all the Republican senators. Romney was the biggest threat to vote to convict. But you know I watched this kind of wrathful. Aw response from the right over. The last few months directed at him and I kind of expected him to be cowed and have like a bunch of excuses for why he had decided to to vote to acquit instead. He was very kind of almost indignant about what he saw as the president's misconduct he was dismayed by by his party. Ready and what. What's become of it and you know one thing that was remarkable to me was the degree to which he was talking about? Very personal issues of conscience and faith faith morality. He told me you know. I'm a fellow Mormon. And he was talking. He was quoting scripture to me quoting from hymns kind of talking about how he had he had had to pray eight for wisdom throughout this ordeal and so this really was something that was very personal for him and something seemed really committed to kneel. You wrote today about History history haunting the Republican senators or even in the near term being haunted by this. But what do you mean by that. Why do you think that's the case as opposed to it being consigned the memory hole like so so much that happens in our in our political world? Yeah I think that the GOP is now like the grand old cover party. And I think there's kind of three structural girl features that if I were publican outside of Romney I'd be really worried about number one. Is that seventy five percent of Americans wanted witnesses and seventy five percent of Americans. I think the president. That's something wrong in Ukraine. And that's even though we're so bitterly divided as a country so many Americans share that same core belief. The second is is the Democratic Party which has been told from the start impeachments assure loser the president keeps saying it and the like and they did it anyway. They did it despite the cost. Because has like Senator Romney they thought it was the right thing and third underappreciated and this is also the role of The folks in the Federal Government People like Dr Dr Fiona Hill and colonel of inman and the brave whistle blower all of whom came forward to say. Hey this is a real problem those three things together. So let's say to me if the president continues doing this stuff. He's going to face those three problems again. And then there's one other thing which is a consequence of the president's own legal arguments he said it to the Senate to things he said number one that there weren't any first-hand witnesses and the house should have gotten them and number two he said. Let the voters decide in November. Those two things together say the House tomorrow should be subpoenaing Bolton and gone launching a full-scale investigation. And that's what the president's President's own lawyers said should be done and so yeah. I'd be really worried if I'm the president I'd be worried about every senator who enabled this cover up McKay Don Jr. in Europe somewhat predictably tweeting about how Mitt Romney should be expelled from the GOP that he's now officially a member of the resistance and should be expelled and then of course Romney's niece Ronna Romney mcdaniel. Who is the chair of the? GOP said this is not the first time I disagree with Mitt. I imagine not be the last. The bottom line is president trump. Did nothing wrong. Republican Party's ladies more united than ever behind him. I got to imagine everyone's GonNa Watch the predictable kind of nuclear reaction that they will get from from from trump and the Republican party on this well. That's that's the whole point that's the strategy and that's been the strategy from day one that Donald trump goes after Mitt Romney when he steps out of line not because he he thinks he's going to be able to intimidate Mitt Romney necessarily because he's sending a message to all the other Republicans who might consider stepping out of line. I will say that you know when I was talking to Romney. He was bracing for this political backlash yesterday and he said Look. I know this is going to be really bad. I know that the vast majority of my party is lined up behind trump. He told me when he he's in airports. Every walk down the street random people will shout things at him in call him a traitor. Tell him he ought to be ashamed of himself and that was before he took this vote. So you know the the backlash is going to be by kind kind of deliberately. A spectacle to try to make an example out of Mitt Romney and I think that's part of the reason that Romney it'll be interesting to continue to watch him both both how he reacts to that and and how he kind of weather is that because while I do think there's GonNa be a lot of anger from the White House presidents allies the grassroots. I'm not actually sure that his Republican colleagues in the Senate are going to be quite as vicious and and you know Romney wants to show that you can do this. You can take this so you can stand up to trump and continue to resist. Do Your job. The president also of course tweeting a as I said earlier kind of nonsensical video targeting Romney I also I also wonder Neil and this is sort of different calculation but but but folks in the civil service I mean this seems to be key so many of them wrist stuck their neck out to go to go testify. We we know that there were people in the administration some political mostly civil servants. who were saying this is wrong? This is wrong. We shouldn't be doing this and I wonder what today means for them as well. In terms of restraining the president going forward so two things I just with respect to the conversation you were just having it so striking to me that this is the same person who evidently said something according to CBS opponents head is going to put on a pike and that led all the Republican senators to freak out when representative Schiff made that argument. But now that's exactly what's Howard's to Romney. We don't hear any of the any of that back and then with respect to the federal bureaucracy. I think you're absolutely right. You could take two different lessons from at one is it. Didn't work but I think the lesson that dead there is being taken in America. I'm starting to hear it from people in the federal government including when people who've seen some bad stuff and haven't come forward yet is the truth has got to come out. If the truth keeps coming out then the president is going to be stymied and all of the horrible things that he's trying to do and so I think this is going to be a lesson that's going to empower future whistleblowers. It's not going to hold them back And I certainly encouraged anyone with information to come forward McKay coppins and Neil Cacho. Thanks Janet from raking time tonight.

Almost here's the best way I can describe it it's the Internet's equivalent of political cartoons that a good way to put it share okay a modern digital essentially this scene in kingsman which I don't understand how this scene was really funnier incite fuller enjoyable the watch but allegedly there was a scene where somebody walks into a church and kills a bunch of people that was the scene Church massacre and they superimposed Donald Trump's face to be the guy that's killing everyone and then he's killing the fake news media CNN MSNBC as well as Democrats like Barack Obama Nancy Pelosi unless we totally denounces videos unequivocally and totally I don't think it's funny to show violence against other people I think it's it's not my not my taste I don't think it's funny people I find that Kinda dark humor interesting I'm not one of those people however he let's just get through some facts they say this was shown at the president's Miami resort so all of the media covering this is insinuating as if the president approved this or this was at his resort he didn't at all okay so I was at this event it was a unique event it was one with a lot of energy and a lot of people that were really excited to be there and Donald Trump junior Sarah Sanders governor on descent data's thankful to be invited you know so this video is shown in a side room in a breakout room against a wall in a very kind of make shift CAPAC- acidy and Don Jr. Ron to Santa Sarah Sanders myself and Corey Lewandowski knew nothing of it we didn't know about this until the news actually broke and now we're being lumped into this I might have spent forty minutes at this event basically the entire time I was at the event was when I was speaking in and out and Laura Ingraham that night and then I flew to Detroit super early the next morning I didn't hang around it was not but they're acting as if we were behind this entire thing the headlines are all all sort of inferring it's like Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Donald trump junior charlie kirk and this

And now with the Muller report mostly made public efforts at negotiating another appearance stalled then suddenly Wednesday, the Republican chairman issued a subpoena to Don jR. I think house chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, telling CBS news to subpoena, the president, I state son and not at least get a heads up. I thought.

"Any the CNN and MSNBC New York Times Washington Post CBS ABC NBC? And their ilk. Do any of the so-called reporters for any of these entities believed that John Kerry should be investigated. For colluding with the Iranians. Do they? Investigated by committees of congress. Foreign affairs and intelligence committees. I mean, ladies and gentlemen, Donald Trump junior. Has been brutally attacked for having a meeting with some Russians of which nothing came of it. Here. We have a former secretary of state. Under the former president United States, actually negotiating. With the former. Foreign minister. Of an enemy state. Negotiate behind the back of the existing administration. Now, what's? What's worse when it comes to the United States? What's worse when it comes to basic ethics? John Kerry, conducting a rogue farm policy. Interfering with the decisions of the current administration. Don, jR, having a meeting with some Russians of which nothing came from the meeting. He was going to perhaps get some information, which they didn't have. And we have heard all along on and on and on Don jR, Don, jR, this Don jR, that poor poor Don, jR, I'll tell you what? There is colluding with the Russian fair. He's colluding. He ought to be indicted indicted for what meanwhile, they John Kerry big dumb. John Kerry who already sold out the country with the Iran deal. Circling back. Think I had two or three meetings while you told Hugh Hewitt it was three or four who can count. Who can count. Was it two meetings three meetings for their their Mr. Molly, you can investigate him. Get him for perjury and false statements. These people are never investigated. They never have criminal statutes over overhanging them ever. So here we have a meeting one two three at least four who the hell knows how many between John Kerry and a surrogate for the Iranian. Islam Nazi regime. A sworn enemy of the United States that wants to build nuclear warheads and hit our cities. That's an Iranian lawyer. And. Nothing. Zip up. It's absolutely incredible. It's like. Joe Biden's, son? And I think it's John Kerry's stepson. Uh-huh. Doing all kinds of business with. The communist government of China. Nobody cares. Nobody blinks an eye. Oh, Joe Joe Biden, he should be the next nominee for the democrat party for president the United States. The only guy dumber than Kerry is Joe Biden. Rome. Fall a stupid. Oh, that's okay. No problem leash. It's not the Russians. And I take a back seat to nobody on Vladimir Putin and the Russians and the threat they pose for this country, and they do. Which is what makes this? So crazy. Logan act Logan. Logan act. No big deal. Mike flynn. Yeah. Get on with the Logan. Don, jR, has a. Turns out to be a pointless meeting with a few Russians Kettani had meetings with Russia all look at that meetings but Russians as if he agreed to give twenty percent. Of our uranium control over our uranium to Putin. Oh, no. That's Hillary up. Forget it. Shh. Hush hush. So John Kerry, undermining the current secretary of state. John Kerry, undermine the president of the United States. Directly repeatedly. Negotiate with the Iranian caught red-handed so to speak. Stupidly confessing. Anybody care. Right back.

To Don Jr. president says he didn't have any idea that the meeting was happening what. Exactly is it that the media thinks it has the left thinks it has on this. If it went down the way I do said, it way down what's legal what's wrong I think there, would there were misleading statements made by the Trump organization about the, meeting in the beginning and act. We could media, is hoping that Muller will seize upon that you misled us that she didn't tell the truth so, there or We have to punish you I think that's what you're absolutely right and.

See what they have and there's nothing. Wrong with that, a woman out, a Russian motor Russians in the room I don't know what happened. In a row but the question is why. They, make big deal out of it they feel that initial reporting by the Trump organization. Was not accurate and that's what they're trying to get And you've done this many times and I want to sort of, flip it and say yeah but the dossier yeah, but Hillary Clinton finance that yeah but? The Democrats finance that that is clearly something. That was made up opposition research paid for lock stock and barrel.

The Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump junior and the tile visual knits guy fewer remember it was July, of last year that the New York Times breaks the news about this meeting took place between Don? Jr. couple of other Russian intermediaries and lawyers at Sarah and Jared. Kushner and Paul Manafort and at the time Don Jr. gave the newspaper a statement that said that this meeting was all about an. Adoption program because you remember it was about the. Magnitsky act vessel knits sky had been ad trying to fight against the Magnitsky act which blacklists suspected Russian human rights, abusers and, Vladimir, Putin. Was so pissed, off at the Magnitsky act that he prevented Americans from. Adopting Russian children in the, statement about the meeting Don Jr. last. Year, said it, was a short introductory meeting I. Asked Jared and Paul stop by Jared Kushner Paul. Manafort we primarily discussed. The program about the adoption of Russian children that was active in popular with American families but blah blah blah and he said I was asked to, attend the meeting by, an acquaintance if you. Remember the guy rob Goldstone I think his name was so I mean his role in it doesn't matter it's just the fact that this meeting took place it was July eleventh, just a, few, days later that the Email chain was Reported remember Don Jr. came out got. In, front of, it and posted the entire Email. Chain and those emails revealed again Don Jr. was. The one who posted. Them publicly those emails revealed that the meeting was actually Called, because Natalia vessel knits, Scalia said she had bad information about Hillary Clinton damaging information. And if you're running for, president against Hillary Clinton who's not gonna want damaging. Information right so he gets this meeting now He. Explained it. Was about adoption will it did turn into adoption talk even though, that's not why? He, wanted the meeting in the. First place and because it turned into adoption talk Jared Kushner Paul Manafort checked out they left they grab like. A bagel off the little tray and then said you know. What sorry this is wasting our time we have, better things, to do and they, got? Back to work running the campaign Now there was a statement that came out From Don Jr. He says he didn't tell his dad about the meeting because while there was nothing to tell kinda Don Jr. with egg on, his face saying I kinda got taken by this woman who said she had dirt on Hillary Clinton when she didn't After the pleasantries were exchanged well I was, asked that there be discussion about adoptions and even Don Jr. was like stupid got taken by this The president, defended his son last year He said politics is not the nicest business in the world is very standard where they. Have information and, you take the information and, he says, in the case of Don he. Listened I guess they talked, about it they talked about some things but adoption is not even part of the campaign wasn't something that they. Were going to get into hold on I. Have a theory about all of this All right this is the soap opera that is involved in all of this Don Jr. is not looked at as favourably as somebody. Like Jared Kushner when it comes to Donald Trump Donald Trump loves when someone is a go getter someone is politically savvy someone is able to control. People and I, think dimples Kushner is that, guy that's, why he likes him married to. His daughter and Don Jr., wants to gain favor and his father's is especially because remember Don Jr. did not have any sort of official. Position in the campaign but dimples Kushner did Don Jr. didn't like So.
