Obama's Trump attacks electrify Democrats, anger GOP
"It Barbara Bahman has spent a lot of time on the sidelines because he didn't want to take an active role in the democratic primary but since Joe Biden clinched the nomination Obama's back Obama's going to take an active role in the campaign and he clearly has a pretty big interest in seeing Donald Trump defeated president trump has been a big critic of Obama trump pushed the birther conspiracy theory as president trump has tried to roll back a lot of Obama's initiatives and I think it is beautiful sort of failing Obama that he was replaced by trump the trump is the successor so Obama has really deviated from the sort of normal post presidency being quiet about your successor practice and that's really going to be enhanced as Obama tries to get his former vice president elected to the White House that trump has not exactly been a shrinking violet in terms of how he's dealt with Obama either he blamed Obama for a lot of the problems with the stockpiles that would need to deal with the corona virus he's he's saying that Apollo sensually spied on his twenty sixteen campaign and he's called him grossly incompetent so we've seen a sort of trump Obama proxy war happening in this twenty twenty campaign even though Obama's not gonna be on the ballot himself from a strategy standpoint Barack Obama didn't get Hillary Clinton to the winner's circle four years ago what I guess what makes this time different yeah that's that definitely how a lot of Republicans feel about it but it isn't that big of a deal Obama gets out there that it probably if anything kill over shadowed by mail point out that Biden is most hello to the speaker is much older yes Sir Obama couldn't drag Hillary Clinton across the finish line in twenty sixteen and he wasn't very good in getting down ballot Democrats selected even while he was president I mean the mid term elections both of them while he was in office for disasters for Democrats Democrats what's the tone of state legislative seats closer thousand while he was president and so there is a case to be made that discovered matter very much now Democrats are hoping that it draws a contrast with trump in which trump looks like this raging sort of maniac compared to No drama Obama and Obama was able to win in two thousand eight twenty twelve because he put together a coalition that included much higher turnout among minority and millennial voters and we've typically seen and that was how he not only wanted two thousand eight but about a much more competitive race against Mitt Romney in twenty twelve and and Joe Biden need help turning out those voters and they're hoping Obama can do it at that but that is the key Obama's appeal in the past not seen that transferable to other Democrat we speak with Jim Antle politics editor at the Washington examiner his piece called Democrats think Obama helps Biden draw a contrast with combative trump the C. reference that that divide with regards to the ages of voters last time around what about the rust belt voters who switched as you point out from Obama to trump four years ago but certainly another thing that Democrats are looking at because you know trump won in large part because he was able to turn rust belt states that have been blue since the eighties read again and there were a number of voters in the state we backed Obama in two thousand eight twenty twelve who voted for Donald Trump in twenty sixteen and because those are voters that Democrats are really targeting this time as they try to turn the Michigan Pennsylvania Wisconsin try to turn them blue again they want Obama to see if he can win back some of those voters for Joe but now some of these are white working class voters who are turned off by possibly even though they did vote for him in his collections and so there is a limit to what you'll be able to do but to take them away from trump and when the back to but but some of these people do have a history of voting for Obama and therefore Democrats hope that if he's out there campaigning for button even if it's only partially because of the pandemic that that's

"Prospects of fellow Republicans shows no sign of diminishing even as the coronavirus crisis intensifies it's a story by Jim Antle politics editor at the Washington examiner Jim how do you see this well last week the president had a clash with representative Thomas Massie a Republican from Kentucky and he essentially was angry the president that is that Masih was holding up a vote on the corona virus stimulus package you wanted a recorded vote house leaders of both parties wanted to do a voice vote of president wanted passed as soon as possible it did pass but trump said that he wanted Massey thrown out of the Republican Party and this is part of a pattern where the Republicans in Congress who run afoul of the president very quickly find themselves in trouble with rank and file GOP voters now thanks to the corona virus the primary that Massey finds himself in a has been delayed until June so it's possible that this blows over but but trump remains at a fearsome figure and we saw in the twenty eighteen elections where people like Bob Corker and Jeff flake who become trump critics ended up having to not run for re election again because they were afraid they would win their primaries where we've seen people like mark Sanford and Justin Ammash in Sanford's case he was defeated in a primary because of a a trump election day tweet animosities Casey's had had to leave the party entirely and is now in the house is an independent others a real pattern of politicians who clashed with trump inside the Republican Party quickly finding the GOP voters abandon them and Massey is is facing that risk right now and what is Mr Massey's take on all this well see Massey argues that he did not take an anti trump position that he he was merely enforcing the constitution's requirements for what the house is supposed to do in terms of having a quorum and voting on important legislation and he argues that he actually strengthen trump's hand in future negotiations with Nancy Pelosi because if Pelosi had been allowed to do what she was planning to do when they decide to take up a fourth coronavirus bill will they'll be even more government spending but she might have tried to ram that through an empty house not having anybody there you know just just holding some kind of voice vote while everybody is remaining in their districts you know another vote is likely to happen when travel is even more difficult when they're more confirmed cases throughout the United States so members are going to be a little bit more reluctant to travel so Massey's argument is that by showing that they had to actually have people present in the house puts a real break on things that pelo see but would want to do that that perhaps president trump would not like we're speaking with Jim Antle politics editor at the Washington examiner so what does this mean potentially for the November elections well certainly it means that Republicans even Republicans in tough districts where where maybe it's a swing district baby it's a place where you're gonna have some voters are going to cast their ballots for the democratic nominee likely to be Joe Biden that there's not a lot of political upside in in breaking with the president and and so at a time as long as trump met maintains ninety plus percent approval ratings among Republican voters he's going to really keep the party base behind him he's going to keep the party's elected officials behind him even if some of them would rather go rogue now obviously if those numbers start to fall as maybe the economy falters maybe the death toll from the coronavirus rises but at the moment trump's numbers are actually improving and he's he's holding steady or improving in his overall job approval rating has coronavirus handling approval ratings are on the rise by double digit margins and certainly there is a unanimity among Republicans released a virtual unanimity among Republicans behind the president so at the moment trump is in a very strong position and other Republicans who want to prosper politically inside the party have to recognize that it was Jim Jim Antle politics editor at the Washington examiner it's twenty minutes now in front of the hour on this morning America's first news coming up next epic fails.

"If you go about it, the right way, and the government has a role in that. Yes. Government does have a role in that. And there are a lot of. Policies that are on their face race neutral that are still conscious of racial disparities. I think criminal Justice reform is a very recent example of that where it's it's not specifically tailored to any racial group. But it is clearly cognizant of the fact that that various racial groups, particularly African Americans have been disproportionately impacted by our government policies, and you can in fact, do that in other contexts, I think that one bit of skepticism I have is that I think you want to be very careful when you're treat when you have government treating people not as individuals, but members of groups even though we clearly do have historic group dynamics in this country that have affects to this day. I think you still if you want to have an individualistic society, you do have to be largely taking people as individuals rather than members of their. Respective groups in a wrong doer and wronged, you know, separating people into those types of groups. But I also think that is there a way to scientifically know exactly how do you go about restoring African Americans to the position that they would have had if slavery and segregation never existed. I don't think that that means we shouldn't have policies that tried to address those reality is. But I think if we are saying that we can do that. I'm very skeptical that we can Kirstin Mullen, can I get you to respond to the concerns that that Jim Antle has that that reparations if they are branded that if I can say or call that that policies to redress are appropriate. But if you call it reparations, and you have a policy of reparations that in America that will be fundamentally divisive. Thank you. I like to say that the goal of patients program would not be to wipe away the legacy of slavery. What we are talking about is moving the needle, you know, in in our conversations, but especially the economic disparity needle, and we feel that the wealth disparity is the key. And if I could go back to comment that I think one of the the colours made about tax deductions, you know, saying, well, you know, it's just like an example of these kind of policies that are not raise specific that might help people. Well, fifty percent of African Americans don't make enough money to file taxes. So that clearly would not be a way to help them. You know, I think the check is really important. But also, we need to talk about this whole panoply of issues that have made it difficult for black people to move ahead. When you talking with Ken Woodley about his fascinating a study about prince ever county. Yes, it's wonderful an admirable that they were able to connect with. With the black individuals who were deprived of education between nineteen fifty nine and nineteen sixty four when when that school district's decided it was better to shut the schools down -pletely, let no one have an education rather than let black people be educated. They were allowed to those who were able were allowed to get an education. But no one talked about the loss income that they suffered from not having gotten those those degrees early. You know, the in the jobs, they didn't have in over talking about closed trying to close the gap. Yeah. That's Kirstin Mullen folklorist co author of the upcoming book from here to a quality. I'm also speaking with kid and Woodley and Jim Antle on the issue of reparations in America, Leslie writes to us via Facebook, I don't see what's wrong with monetary reparations. And I don't see why they couldn't go to anyone with a black ancestor in eighteen seventy or eighteen eighty census, Leslie says that's a practical way to do it.

"And they're trying to somehow equate that and I think for most Americans that's not a quotable. And I also think that it's a fair criticism to Republicans to look back and say is it, okay? For a politician to have a personal life or just every aspect of a politician's personal life have to be front and center this policy positions. What matter and I think the reason why Bill Clinton ultimately got through the impeachment and stuff is because I think people also knew Bill Clinton was and they didn't want him to be president. Because I thought he was going to be their minister they thought he was doing a pretty good job as president in the Senate did acquit him and said these personal reasons were not sufficient for him to be removed from we gotta go in a moment. But james. I hear you that. I hear you Matt that they're not equivalent, but with regards to the president. There's the allegation from Michael Cohen that essentially the president then a candidate may have committed campaign finance violation, very flimsy, very flimsy. But it's still an allegation, and then there's the Robert Muller probe. So indeed the equation might not be something. Not just be different. It could be worse. Well, I think we don't really know a lot of what Robert Muller is going to say, I think if you look at the the Roger stone indictment, and you look at a lot of the indictments that have come down. Nobody when Muller and his team want to go into court and prove something they never bring anything collusion related. I think the concern the president's team should have about Muller would when you look at the Roger stone indictment. He only indicts on process crimes, but the preamble tries to weave collusion oriented narrative. So in the report is Muller going to allude to things that he cannot prove. But suspect. X Jim Antle.

There are many places down there that are virtually open and people do in fact walk directly across and there needs to be the best security possible at any given location in point of fact. In a discussion in the Senate in which there was a passage of a Bill the comprehensive addiction Recovery Act in the course of that debate and the passage by the way, but the score of ninety four to one was the final vote. It was revealed that in fact most heroin in the US now comes across the Mexican border. It used to come across from other portions of the world southeast Asia, for example. But. That has changed. So just so you're aware of that fact, one eight six six five O, JIMBO one eight six six five zero five four six two six two Bill in Ventura, California now good evening, Bill O. Thank you for taking my call. Love you. Thank you. I'm really deplorable. I've eighty one years old. I'm a veteran those air force and US navy and to all those in this country, including congress that hate the wall. You better say you love your children and give them big hugs when they leave for schools and whatever in the morning. You may not see them again. Well, I suspect most of us will see our our children again. But the fact of the matter remains that we have people coming into the country. Jim Antle, who who do not have the legal right to be here? And whether they are going to do immediate violent harm to us, or they simply plan to take jobs that are not theirs to take because they entered the country illegally. The fact remains that by either measure, we need a defense of our southern border. Jim. That's right. And what we're seeing for seeing a large wave of economic like Gration coming through our southern border as even if most of the vast majority of the people who are coming here. I don't mean to do us harm from a national security perspective. Although there is certainly an economic and social services impact to their arrival. When you have the numbers just the numbers of people involved who we don't know who they are that enough itself as a national security and public safety concern, even if per capita, most of these individuals are going to be a problem in that area. So we we have an issue with just a large number of people coming in. Maybe you down from a historically high numbers that we've seen in recent years, but still very high from it historical perspective, and we've seen a change in the composition of these inflows. Whereas they used to be single adult man who could. Be fairly easily repatriated to their home countries thrown out of the United States where beginning to see about two thirds of them. Be either family is family units or unaccompanied minors who because they will often make asylum claims, and because we're limited at the ways in which they can be sane are much harder to return to their home countries in an expeditious fashion, and it would be much easier for all concerned, if they simply never got here in the first place a wall, in fact, actually accomplish, Tom, and Sharon, Pennsylvania. Hello, tom. Good evening, Jim to your guest out. Rand Paul has suggested having the state of the union address on on the floor of the Senate. Now, I other than having a mess applause than what the president would normally get. I don't a sweet certainly see where that's a bad idea and the of the house of representatives would not be invited. Because there wouldn't be enough room for everyone. But that don't mean then that Mitch McConnell or the pro team of the Senate would be behind the president opposite the vice president, I suppose, possibly, although I would note that according to the constitution, the president child from time to time give to the congress that is to say both houses information of the state of the union. So I don't see how you don't invite. Even if it's standing-room-only, Jim Antle. There's really no precedent for that. So we don't know exactly how it would work. There is precedent for the president not giving a live speech. Oh, that's right. They only gave. The other gave written reports that's true. So it certainly doesn't have to be done in the exact way we have in recent years done it. It's a tradition and not a constitutional requirement. But it is something that has to be presented to the whole congress. The speeches a tradition. The report is a constitutional require report. Reporting on the state of the union, and some fashion or form to the full congress is a constitutional requirement precisely how that is done and the way in which we've done it in recent years is a tradition. Yes. That is quite correct. And in fact, from I guess it was from Thomas Jefferson all the way to Woodrow Wilson, which was over a century. In fact, there were no state of the union speech is more to come back in a moment. It may not be stomach issues for me. It's intense gas or pain or diarrhea sometimes all at once over and over I spent years with the symptoms, but could never figure it out. No matter what I did. They never went away. So I decided to break it down for my doctor and get really specific about my symptoms. We discovered that extra pancreatic insufficiency for EP. I may be the reason for my stomach issues EP is caused by. My pancreas.

"Interesting question too. Because the predictions were all right in twenty twelve people got because that was a normal time those a normal election all the predictions were wrong in two thousand sixteen because it was not normal election at all. And you're seeing that in this house and Senate midterm elections. It's kind of returning to normal. If this is true, if thirty I think is returning to think we're seeing so far is that things have changed since twenty sixty. Yeah. Basically where they were. And that's important because it means the entire the entire arsenal of the left is unleashed upon us. And it really hasn't changed the matrix. Some people who are very very Trump getting killed like crisco back who is running for Kansas governor. He's just getting destroyed. Laura Kelly right now NBC has already called it for for for Laura Kelly in Kansas. So that's that's a big loss for Republicans in Kansas. Do Republicans hat like is there a way for Republicans to keep the best of Trump's aggressiveness and lose the worst parts? That's my hope that is what it exactly what I'm hoping. What I'm when I'm hoping for is that his policies that he is continually forced to the rights with his policies work, and that his policies become represented by somebody who's more presentable what I would not like to see not like to see the Reagan Bush pet and off where Reagan hands off to a guy really doesn't support. He says, oh, we're going to be kinder gentler. I would like to see somebody who's kinder gentler affect but as far right as Trump has been in policy. That would be a good thing. I used to think it was going to be Mike Pence. I wonder if Mike Pence has the the kind of gumption to that. Basically, the best candidates have the capacity to punch, but they also have the capacity to speak broadly. Trump definitely has the capacity to punch she has little the passage, speak broadly. You know, Obama as politicians have the capacity to both of those things which is why he was very good. And his job. I think that on the on the right side of the other problem with vice president Pence why like very much is he has the capacity to speak broadly. I'm not sure he has the capacity to punch and right now, the Republican base particularly values the capacity if you have to pick one or the other Republican base dallies the capacity to punch the most other breaking news, Heidi Heitkamp is done in North Dakota. Which was absolutely predicted basically broke that one wide open. She published the names of the sexual assault survivor and not and with their permission. And I mean, it was just her campaign was over three weeks ago. So right now, it looks like the path that Senate majority in the past of the house majority as Jim Antle, says we're running through absolutely different universes. Senate and the house are just living in completed. Map. It is the way the the districts are divided into what what districts were vulnerable, which was were which states vulnerable, which ones weren't that is the map speaking in the that fact, just means that nothing has really changed and that speaks to the weakness of the mainstream media and brought her. We do have some some breaking news from ABC. They're calling it for crews. Now, they see that's what they were moral victory. Yeah. That's going to be three percent because it should be ten percent. At least. Right. I mean, they're they're calling it. But they're not giving any numbers. That's just two minutes ago there. It's going to be relatively close saying that it was like three percent which in Texas is scare ovo uniquely good candidate uniquely. Difficult circumstances handicapped. Yeah. Very much who wanted to go into this Cassie you got another question for us over there..

"Driving and sneeze like a truck driver and sees all the time, that's probably can't seize with your eyes open. Do you know this? There's a lot of sneezing myths out there. Totally do it. Put me the fuck fucking test. I, I also sneeze very, very loud, apparently very of self conscious about my sneezes, but there's no better feeling in the world and working on a series for a long time, and then finally getting it out the working on it for a long time. Part suck so bad. But then when you finally get it out, it's really, really good. I finally got mine out. You're hanging out with our friends and house drinking a glass of wine. I don't know if that had anything to do with it. The tannin's may be getting up in there, and I felt it coming looked up at the light in the ceiling, and it finally happened Griffin, I guess, did some research. And read that you can look at a light? Yeah, that research was actually an episode of Pete and Pete. I think it was the one where he gets the marshmallows stuck in his nose. Do you remember that as the president or something. So that worked, and that's our bodies are so fucking wild. I did some cursory sneeze research k, it's so wild, and there's like a million things are wild about our bodies, but sneezing is like up there top five, wildest things that we do. There's actually lots of research in what causes sneezes. But when I was looking up this, like not being able to finally getting out, there's actually like I couldn't find anything for what makes this like false start thing happen. So, hey science, you don't actually look into this. There's like way more. Do you answer. Global warming. There's a lot of stuff, but. Okay. So sneezes are reflects right. They are triggered by there. Triggered by four and matter getting up in your nose in your your, your nasal mucus membranes, and really wanna sneeze. Just hearing you talk about. Yeah, I know. And they triggered this violent expulsion to try to get rid of that stuff. Right. This is this is from Wikipedia. Whenever you get that sort of foreign matter up and your nose, it triggers the release of histamine which irritate the nerve cells in the nose resulting in signals being sent to the brain to initiate the sneeze through the tribe, Jim Antle nerve network. The brain then relates this initial signal activates the fair Geel and tracheal muscles and creates a large opening of the nasal and oral cavities resulting in a powerful release of air and bio particles. I've never really thought about the. Anatomy of sneeze before. But what this is saying. I've never really appreciated until this very moment is that you get some weird dust or pepper up in your nose, and then it gets in your mucus and then you're, it's that nerve cells message your brain. That's like iota deal with this and your brain sins a message to your fucking like hold chest area. That's like, hey, can you convulse for me really quick? That's why isn't a really thought about that either can also be caused by like stimulation of the sinus nerve. So if you like very congested, which I almost constantly I'm or if you have allergies, can that can be the source of those sneezes. But there's also a ton of external stimuli that I didn't really know about that can cause sneezes. Some of it is fucking wild. There's something called the folks knees reflects, and that is when you look at a bright light and this is not for this is not work for like one hundred percent of the population. I know I mentioned like, looked up at the light because of Pete, and Pete episode told me to. But there are people who may leave a dark building step out into the sunlight before they sneeze. That's called the fourth extremes reflects their some folks who sneeze when they get aroused. And that's just because of some light crossed wires in the automatic nervous system. And I feel almost like I shouldn't make light of that because I imagine it's fairy inconvenient and probably something that you have to explain something. I do not talking about arousal right now, but that's a first. All week, even talking about arousal and phrases. I. When I get nervous yawn a lot. I think it's because my breathing becomes more shallow. And maybe that's why I'm start yawning when I'm about to cry, I always yon. Oh, is that weird? That's not Paris response. So anyway, that's nothing..

"We are now one year out of 2018 midterm election and we've already seen some gop up with many congressman saying that they will not seek reelection next year politics editor jim antle joins us now and jim is this unusual for a midterm anytime you fit are going into an election where one you have people who are are not happy with what has happened in the last couple of years of congress and two they don't feel very confident about the electoral prospects you start to see some retirement semi historically speaking regardless of the political climate usually the president's party loses seats in the midterms it's been true and eighteen of the last twenty midterm election campaign so you're seeing a lot of these republicans uh maybe some of whom were in districts that president trump either lost or one very narrowly saying you know what maybe i'm gonna take a pass on this next time how'd you the recent indictments play in tennis the politics of it is clear that once who have indictments uh your it really makes it no longer easy to say this is a witchhunt this is a hoax this is some triviality there are now three people who who are facing charges and one has already pleaded guilty so that really does affect i think how a lot of democrats view it and maybe some swingvoters so it's going to be harder for president trump to push back on it now the more senior people obviously didn't have their charges related to the campaign and the person who's charges are more related to things that went on during the campaign was a fair we will level person at the same time that's a those are distinctions that can be tough to to make in the heat of a political debate and the bottom line is paul manafort campaign chairman of president trump's campaign was indicted.
