"harry endon" Discussed on The Forecast with Harry Enten
"Welcome to a bonus episode of the forecast fast. I'm Kate Baldwin here with my colleagues. Thanks John Avalon and Harry Endon Shabbat trip Aleve okay so let's just dive. We're recording this on Tuesday night about eleven o'clock eastern in time here in Detroit and the first of the two debates has just wrapped. Let's recap the first of these two debates and then let's talk about what tonight could mean for tomorrow tomorrow. The second debate coming up on Wednesday night. When the second group of ten takes the stage the big headline coming out of this big debate is what let's say together? The lovers center really played out in a very big way who's clear throughout absolutely and those are those are the fault lines in the Democratic Party but this was a really substantive debate designed to really bring out those policy the differences and they are deep and they are profound at times their personal but that's the conversation <hes> the parties having on every issue after issue you saw it really cleaver had worn and sanders <hes> and then a lot of folks like Hickenlooper and bullock and Klobuchar and Ryan really really and Delaney really really try to strengthen the center just one difference that I noticed and it's and it was kind of threw out. There was a lot I saw a lot more energy onstage. The candidates really coming to very clearly make contrast straight out of the gate with the opening remarks. Everyone's opening was was making a contrast with somebody if it wasn't trump it was somebody else on the stage and I think that was a big. It seems there's a big lesson learned from debate round one this. They all all know that the clock is ticking. If you're not in the top tier was it. They sent the clock ticking. I think that absolutely.
"harry endon" Discussed on CNN's The Daily DC
"Hey, everyone. This is David challenge the CNN political director, and this is the daily DC. Thanks so much for listening today on the podcast. Well, it was supposed to be all about election day in Pennsylvania, but I had one of those bizarre cable TV experiences. This morning, I went to the television studio to do my television hit on setting up the Pennsylvania eighteenth congressional district special election today and set the stakes for that. And as I sat in the chair and got the microphone on it was announced Washington Post, first broke, oh, with a bulletin that Rex Tillerson was being fired replaced by Mike Pompeo who's the currency? I a director and that he would be replaced by his deputy. Gina hospital ad CIA that those were the nominations that the president was putting forward. Then of course, followed by the president's tweet saying goodbye Rex Tillerson. So it's yet another day in sort of the Trump management style apprentice version of the White House. We'll get to Pennsylvania in a second. That is my focus today, but this is a pretty sick. -nificant shakeup of the president's national security team as he now is putting the building blocks together for year two of his presidency and and in that year to buy for a couple months now at precisely the time that you know, some of these national security challenges are sort of bubbling up to the front burner and and hitting a different gear. Whether it's the potential meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Hoon on North Korea or eight ease the ongoing problems with Russia and how they are Interactor interacting, not just with the United States, but with the US allies. And of course the Iran nuclear deal that the president wants to pull out of. And just recently, the president was saying moving to a new phase towards Middle East peace just to name a few of the national security challenges that are really front and center on the president's desk. And so at this moment he gets rid of secretary of state. He swaps people out as a CIA director. We know that H R McMaster, the national security advisor has been on very. Thin ice with President Trump in this White House and has not really been aligned with the president very much similar leader. What we saw with Rex Tillerson just publicly not in the same place on some key issues. So perhaps the national security advisor who's supposed to sort of corral all of this together for the president is soon going to be out. And this may be sort of the unleashed Donald Trump that we are starting to see here sort of Trump two point. Oh, if if indeed the first year of Trump's presidency was the all about the urges of the president, the gut instinct about base political appeal and what sort of got him elected and had a continue down that road on delivering on many of his campaign promises while struggling to do that within the constraints of Washington dumb and like establishment sort of rules of the road for how presidencies occur, how policy is developed and rolled out all the norms that have. Sort of been busted that struggle between the norms and the president's sort of gut desires, I think was very much the story of in many ways of the first year of the Trump presidency. And now as we are in your to, it seems perhaps the story that's developing is the unshackled Donald Trump in many ways that all the attempts to have him roam within some of those boundaries of the norms, perhaps he's bringing in a team now that won't be to him, won't feel constraining. The relationship with John Kelly has been tenuous over the last couple of months. We'll see how that plays out. But obviously when rents previous laughed and Sean Spicer some old hands from the RNC, you lost some of the sort of Washington guard inside the realm. We've seen a lot of turnover here and as the turnover has occurred, the new blood that comes in seems to be a bit less inclined or less rooted in some way into the Washington mores. And again. I'm not suggesting that that may be a bad thing. This is actually why Donald Trump was elected in many ways was too, I mean he would say drain the swamp, but forget the money and ethics issues of everything. I, I would just say he was elected in many ways to try something different to really create change to bust up this town that is not held in high regard among the American people perhaps is year two team is going to be a little bit more conducive for him to do that. Then is your one team was in his mind, but that to me, that's sort of the thirty thousand foot view of what we're seeing here. In fact, the president on the south lawn today, as he was departing, the White House to head to California, his first trip as president to California most popular state in the union, and you know one out of every seven Americans are so lives in California, and this is a presidential record to go this long into a presidency in the modern era anyway, and not visit California. The president is heading out to his first official trip as president to California, and again, to hit some issues. He loves talking about right, the immigration issues, sanctuary sanctuary cities looking at prototypes for the border wall. These are some of those bread and butter base issues that he really believes delivered him to the White House in many ways. And so he kind of stepped on that trip a bit with rolling out the Tillerson firing announcement today. And of course, there is the divide between how the White House is telling the version of events what happened and how the State Department is telling the version of events what happened. But it seems that Tillerson was given a heads up that the time had come. That Trump was really done with him, and then he may be, you know, hearing about that in a tweed or whatever. When he was on his trip in Africa, he kinda got this heads up without actual official notification of termination or any definitive word from the president. What seems to have caught the State Department Rex Tillerson off guard today according to all of CNN's reporting is that the timing of wetness would actually happen even though he knew his time had come to an end that Donald Trump was ready to move on to another. Secretary of state. I, it was not clear apparently Rex Tillerson according to the reporting that that would happen this morning before the president left for California in a tweet, or you know, in a Washington Post raking headline initially, and then moments later in a presidential tweet. So it seems that once again will surprise nobody paying attention to this administration. The White House and the State Department are not even on the same page as it comes to the dismissal and removal. Rex Tillerson esoteric state. Now, of course, the other thing there are a couple of other storylines out there that by rolling it out in the way he did this morning as Donald Trump is want to do sort of go with the gut, get it done, roll it out, try to control the press narrative. It knocks off some of the stormy Daniels headlines that continue to percolate and at times dominate the news coverage. And of course, this huge special election in Pennsylvania for this congressional district outside of Pittsburgh, which as you know, is a district Donald Trump won by twenty points. And if the Democrats are to win tonight, that would indeed set off alarm bells and be a hugely embarrassing defeat. For the president, no matter how he tries to spin it. If that's the result, that is what it would be an embarrassing defeat for the president. So no doubt having these stories out there about Tillerson and Pompeo coming in certainly will help dictate some of the news coverage today to more favorable terrain through the president's vision of it, but that Pennsylvania race is still going to happen. And there are still going to be voters heading all day to the polls there, the poles, their close at eight o'clock eastern tonight you can see the returns come in on CNN dot com or on CNN television. We will have live coverage beginning at seven pm eastern tonight. So be sure to tune in. It will be a pretty dramatic race. I do want to sort of set the stage here for a moment. Republicans are already trying to sort of prepare for possible loss by saying, succumb is a terrible candidate that may be true and that lamb is a much better more dynamic candidate. Again, that may be true, but to suggest that this is not about Donald Trump or a referendum on Donald Trump and to somehow therefore suggests that twenty eighteen midterms will. Be a referendum on Donald Trump. They are midterm elections, usually our referendum on the president. It is important that as you hear the excuses coming, if indeed the Republicans lose to not lose sight of just what a huge deal that would be. Now on the flip side of that, if the Republicans can hang onto this seat, there's gonna be a big deserved cya of relief. Now on the Republican side. That doesn't mean there still aren't dangerous signs about November. We've seen all throughout as we've talked about on this podcast, Democrats over performing with a lot bigger, democratic turnout, even in some very red places than we saw in two thousand sixteen for Hillary Clinton or in the congressional races in the places where some of these special elections over the last year were held. That being said, there's a difference between a win and a loss, and if the Republicans can hang onto the seat, even if it's by a couple of points and so much closer than it should have been, yes, they will face headlines about November is going to be tougher Republicans, but they know that already. That is a totally different headline. Then Republicans lose. Lose a seat in a Trump plus twenty district, and people start freaking out inside the GOP that that's a whole different headline. So I do think even if it's close people say, well, that's still good news for the Democrats. Yeah, but a win is a win here. And if the Republicans hang onto it, there will be some sense of maybe we can actually fight this Blue Wave that seems to be forming at least in some real areas of Trump country. And by the way, it will also give real hope to some of the Senate Republican challengers who are fighting with income and Democrats in deep red states like Montana, West Virginia, Missouri, North Dakota, Indiana, because it may show that even with all that democratic turned out and swell deepen Trump country, a Republicans can still find a way to hang on. So do think that if indeed the Republicans win tonight, there will be good news for them to take from that. And mostly that good news will be in the sense that it will not feel as if an earthquake just occurred inside their party. People will not be quaking in their boots as much. They will just be like, yes, this is going to be a rough year, but we must soldier on. I think there's a real difference in the psychology of the results tonight and by the way, psychology like that electoral psychology that has real impact on American politics, it should not be discounted.
