Andy Surabian on 2016 and the Power of Trump's Appeal
"Back with my former White House colleague, special assistant to president Trump Andy Sarah. We've talked about 2016. We've talked about how you got involved in politics. When he talked to us about the last four years plus 9 months, talk to us about the political landscape has the GOP actually internalized what happened in 2016 and where is the stop laughing? And where is the maga movement today, Andy? I think there are aspects of the Republican Party that have internalized why president Trump was so successful and why does appeal was what it was? I don't want to name names because some of these guys, I like and I'm Friends with, but you can certainly see certain senators and congressmen who have kind of alter how they talk, what issues they focus on over the last several years. And there's a reason for that because I think there is an element of the Republican Party that has figured out his appeal and understands it. I also think there's an element a big element, unfortunately, the Republican Party that either a never understood his appeal or even worse be understood as appeal and hated him for it. And those are the Paul ryans of the world who were ideologically opposed to Donald Trump on issues like immigration in trade. I mean, I think Paul Ryan probably understood Trump's appeal, but he just hated

Look these investigations as a former federal prosecutor who did national security cases. You know these things take time. You have to get approvals from down below in the bowels of the justice department through the attorney general if you're gonna go surveilled someone of this magnitude.

We need to go and look at his bank records. It cellphone records is emails. Phone calls because we think he killed somebody or because we think he robbed the bank and if there's probable cause the judge grants it same thing in this instance just different federal court that deals with spy and basically what the hillary clinton campaign did was. They spent tens of millions of dollars to collect false information from this guy. Christopher steele will use to be a british intelligent asset. If you can believe it later turned. Fbi informant. i mean. You can't make this up. I never understood this. Where the heck did this tens of how. How on earth did they spend. Tens of millions of dollars. I've never never understood that. Sure so one of the things that we were able to do on house intel. Even though paul ryan didn't want us to do it was subpoenaed. The bank records for this company called fusion. Gps glenn simpson and they were funneling the money through perkins coup which is the democratic ball. And that's what they do.

The law firm then cuts checks the fusion. Gps for millions of dollars and they go and higher media representatives christopher steele to start putting false smear campaigns against president trump. So they're working. The intelligence apparatus one lane and the media apparatus in another to take on a presidential a presidential

Paul ryan consulted a doctor and studied psychiatric research to figure out how to deal with donald trump since trump was so obviously mentally unstable and their book woodward and cost a report once trump won. Brian was caught off guard. He now had to deal with him. Brian began on his own to research. How to deal with someone who is moral and transactional. The exercise initially was difficult. Ryan liked to call himself a policy guy but his wife did not extend from the realm of social security and medicare into psychiatry. Then a wealthy new york doctor and republican donor called ryan and said you need to understand what narcissistic personality disorder is. What brian asked. The doctor sent ryan a memo and an email with his thoughts on how to best deal with a person with antisocial personality disorder. He also sent along hyper links to dense articles in the new england journal of medicine the memo contained material from the internal statistical classification of diseases and related health problems. Tenth addition called ryan studied them for weeks. Convinced trump had the personality disorder ryan's main takeaway do not humiliate trump in public humiliating narcissist.

Twenty first twenty seven if we could construct a psychiatric frankenstein monster. We could not create a leader more dangerously mentally ill than donald trump. he's a paranoid psychopathic narcissist. Who's divorced from reality and lashes out impulsively at imagined enemies. And this is someone as you mentioned. Who's handling the nuclear codes. He lives because of his sociopathic tendencies to gartner was talking about. He can't stand aspect of reality that he doesn't want. So he rejects his grasp of reality and his attention. To reality is is loose and extremely dangerous trait in a president to actually makes him unqualified. He's just saying enough as it were to a pass but actually detached from reality is doctor. Dodo said so that what is real is fluid. It's totally Malleable according to his personality disorder. And so you have someone handling the nuclear codes. Who's not in touch with reality. And whose paranoid who actually imagined that he's under attack by people who were not actually attacking him then. What you have is a very dangerous combination of someone who can act on his paranoid fantasies in a way that can have catastrophic consequences.

Republicans Should Talk About Impeachment After Biden's Illegal Immigration Plot

SPACs: The Backwards IPO That's Taking Over Wall Street
"The hottest trend on wall street. This year is a spec. That's spelled s. p. a. c. constantly house backs backs best back frenzies. Back actions back is the new black former house speaker. Paul ryan's got us back. Shaquille o'neal's got us back and the youngest self made billionaire ever just brought in all that cash through a spec. What the heck is a spec will let. Npr's camilla Explained in an ipo or initial public offering. You start with a company that wants to go public and then investors toss a bunch of money at it. A spat or special purpose acquisition company kind of flips that around investors pool. Their money together. I with no idea what company they're investing in then. That pile of money goes out and looks for a company to merge with the company gets the money and the stock ticker with a lot less paperwork until recently this was not a well regarded way to go public. They have this sort of shady origin. Story right rodriguez is a professor at the university of georgia school of law. There are these blank check. Companies really had a bad reputation a lot of blank check. Companies were outright frauds. So the federal government. Crackdown suspects added more safeguards to the blank check model like investors can get their money back if they don't approve of the company that gets picked but they were still on the fringes of the financial world until now and probably done one or two huge back combinations a year for the last five years until this year and then i would say the of the market just exploded. Sarah morgan is a lawyer. With the firm. Vincent in elkins specs today over fifty percent of my practice this year. Why now well if you look past the bad reputation specs have some real advantages there. Faster than ipo's and have less uncertainty for founders. Both attractive during this really uncertain year. Austin russell is the ceo of luminary a company. That makes lighter. That's like radar but with lasers it's used in self driving vehicles. He founded the company as a teenager. Now he's got contracts with companies like volvo. It was time to go public and he saw the appeal of a spec. You've got the process end to end and in a like four months as opposed to having to spend huge time distraction for the better part of a year or two and he'd seen several well respected companies. Do it i. it's pretty cool. His spac merger earlier this month made him at twenty five forbes's youngest self made bilionaire. Today's specs have clear benefits for founders. Like russell who can go public with less paperwork they can also mean big bucks for the sponsors who organize them in fact sponsors make so much money if they close a deal that some critics worry. There's an incentive to merge with a mediocre company just to get that payday and that raises a big question whether this spac craze will be good for investors shiver drita says the risks are real because the flip side of making things easier for companies is inevitably that the risk of fraud to investors goes up. I don't know anyway to square that circle some of the sears specs have performed badly on the stock market and others have raised bigger concerns after zero emission truckmaker. Nikola went public through respect. It was accused of fraud which the company denies despite the skeptics the spectacular rise in specs shows no sign of fading away camilo domino npr news.
First Presidential Debate: What to Expect
"And David, You have been through a lot with the president. So you probably know how he is preparing for this debate. He tell us about it. Well, we You know, I have that's true. I've been around this president for a long time. And you know he is the hardest working. Ah, man that I know on DH. He's working. Every minute of every day for this Cherie, and what he's doing now is he's working every day for the country is president. Then he's got a second full time job, which is Being a candidate for president. So it's pretty interesting for me to watch him have to really juggle both jobs. Every incumbent has to do it for this. This president put it, You know, really the gas pedal down all ahead full, and he's Very excited about tonight. He's he's looking for a great debate. Look, Joe Biden has been a member. Of the greatest debate club in the world history, the United States Senate and he's been there for a long time, almost 50 years, and so you look at this president and we say, and the president saying that he's done more in 48 months. Then Joe Biden is done in 48 years, and I think the record is very clear about that. I agree with you, but, you know, some folks speak to the people who are kind of nervous on our side of the aisle, who are kind of nervous about tonight. Like you just said bite. It is part of his club, the Senate. He's been there for 47 years. We've seen them debate in the past. Most recently are should say in 2012, was it It was with the with the Ryan Paul Ryan, and it was were a lot of us were shocked that Aggressive. He was and how thrown off Paul Ryan was. I don't think it is you could throw President Trump off. Is there anything they have trump? If Biden is on his game, what should be looking out for? I think it's going to be interesting if he is on his game. I think it's going to go. You know, people are gonna wonder, eh? I'm wondering whether or not Joe Biden is up for this job, whether he's up for the debate. He's been hiding for six months in his basement, so I'm interested in his mental acuity. I'm interested in the guy's gas machine, so we're going to see firsthand tonight. Whether he could go 90 minutes without a Gaff. If you can go 90 minutes standing on a stage no teleprompter. No. Mrs Biden, no Dr Biden to help him answer questions. Nobody with no cards. You know it's going to be a very interesting, you know, thing. Toe watch. Ah, on one hand, and on the other hand, you have the issues which are all on Donald Trump's side, because if we make this if it's the president Make this issue makes his campaign and the debate site and is able to talk about these issues. Whether it's higher taxes versus lower taxes, more job killing regulations versus fewer regulations, whether it's open borders and free health care for illegal immigrants. Whether it's Ah, anarchy in the streets and be funding the police, or is it about lower taxes and cutting regulation and creating the vibrant economy that we had? Before the Chinese buyers. What, Or is it about border security isn't about supporting, you know, are our men and women in blue and making sure that the president continues to have their back? So this is This is what Ronald Reagan called bold colors, not pale pastels. Let's create a stark difference between the two candidates, and that's what President Trump is going to do tonight, and I think it's gonna shine. I think he'll shine. He's not going to be put off by anything. Joe Biden give me a break. You know Donald Trump, you know, going to be very forward leaning, and he's going to be ready for anything that that Joe Biden throws at
Dak Prescott reveals he got help for depression: "It saves lives"
"Scott Van Pelt. One big thing was about Dak Prescott and Prescott spoke out about depression skip bayless criticized him for it and Scott. Van Pelt. made it as one big thing last night. We track that down for you. Here's Scott last night on sports center. We've never had more access to athletes than we do right now, social media has allowed them to control message and their brand like never before, but it's more than that. The modern athlete is more willing than his or her predecessors to share themselves in ways that reveal humanity their vulnerability. It's easy to lose sight of the fact that these stars are just like we are because we won't ever be in. Line for thirty, some odd million dollar a year contract. We won't ever be the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, but we all carry around things with us pain burdens years, and they get heavy is the real. Even if you're the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, Dak Prescott shared with Graham Bensinger that following his brother's death by suicide, he struggled with the pressure that the isolation of quarantine impacted him significantly as well. Prescott shared this. When you have those that you've never had I think that's more more than anything the chance to realize and recognize it on to be vulnerable about it. And that's what's so different about the modern athlete, not instagram or brand management. It's the understanding that there will be understanding that you don't have to pretend to be tough when you aren't that you can ask for help and know that it's going to be met with compassion for the most part. And also to know that those who can't muster any? Aren't worth your time. We're concern. Yeah, I'm there's. Fell the last sentence was my favorite part in George Dino in L Z granderson joining us now for cross. The lesson was my favorite part. The encouraging part about this whole skip bayless Dak Prescott thing guys is the reaction to it from everybody else that Dak Prescott was universally welcomed after somebody tried to criticize him for being vulnerable and that's when that's when you know you've turned a corner when the when the reaction is. So overwhelmingly one sided. George. What'd you think about all that stuff? Look I've worked with skip before on first take many years ago and I think skip is a nice man. I think what the problem is that people don't realize is that he has a very one track mind. If you notice, there was a huge mistake. He made a mistake not that long ago. I remember when Paul Paul Ryan, kind of delved into sports in one of these political debates can. There was a clip that went viral about him. Not even knowing who was right like that's just who is and I'm not look I'm not condoning what he said at all I think what he said was reprehensible like I someone particularly who has suffered from depression who has had real struggles dealing with loss at times as many of us has Scott pointed out right I think he's a very nice person off the air I just think he's not very worldly or standing of anything that's not in his particular sphere or circle, and most of it is sports
Trump calls for drug tests before Biden debate
"The president trump has spoken to the Washington Examiner yesterday in the Oval Office and he saying that he would like Joe Biden and himself to take drug tests before the debates begin next month. And they asked him why do you think that Joe Biden might be on drugs INCAS, listen I I'm pretty good at this stuff. He says that Joe Biden performed very well during the debate against Bernie Sanders and he said there's just no way. He can pull it together that quickly let's bless you. Nice little sticky. Your. Trump says he takes one aspirin a day, but he would like drug tests. The V. Before the debate start I think it's at the end of next month and to September Well, you know what he's doing, right? No he saying Yawkey accused me of so much stuff out of nowhere. This. Just so ridiculous even even trying to get me out of office with impeachment and all these things that were made up none of it ever. True. I'm. GonNa Start Making up some stuff on you I'm just going to start coming up with things out of the blue. To throw a show, see what it's like. He did have an interesting about the debate. He said, well, it's a prize fight. It's no different from gladiators except we have to use our brain and our mouth and our body to stand I want all standing. They want to sit down which I thought was an interesting thing. I WANNA be standing during the debate. They won't have chairs so I duNNo. A lot of posturing at this but the part of that is strength. Of, strength. vice. President Cheney has major major heart problems. So when he was in the vice presidential debates when it was he and Bush were the the team. He had to sit down for his because of his heart condition and that was part of the agreement with that. But if you're not, if you're not having, you know if you don't have any kind of health condition that would prevent you from stain I thought they would do. You remember or not but. I thought they would do several debates in several different ways like one would be standing. One would be sitting would be a town hall kind of setting the way I, remember there there are stools and when it was your turn to speak, you would stand and or and so that with the other person was speaking, you'd go back and sit on your stool. Then when it was your time, you would stand and. Come forward to speak to the people in the room that was one of Hillary Clinton's big complaints about one of those debates where they had the stools in a town hall setting and instead of when he was done, he wouldn't go sit back in his chair he kinda stand eight feet or so behind her and just kind of pace back and forth and she said she felt at ver as like it was. What do you call that? He was talking her coming like he was stalking her and trying to be you know what that's called that's called Gamesmanship. What people do he figured out? I'm not going I'm going to change this up. I'm GONNA throw her off her game by I'm not GONNA, sit? I'm going to stand. It's it's it's strategy. Yeah I. Remember when I remember this because I'm ninety one years old. But during the Bush Al Gore debate when they were doing the townhall went on the stools and Bush, was answering a question that was asked to him and Al Gore. Walk Right and got in his face. And he stopped and looked at him like Hey. Buddy. And then just went on with the stuff was a great. You know you've got a good laugh out of it. I mean he taxes he's privacy going. Hey if you get on my space yeah, I, remember that because it was a big deal that. Gore tried to intimidate him in Bush just kind of made everybody laughed in Gore had to step back and then it. A mistake that Al Gore may again, they do all kinds of that little strategy game what they say when they shake hands, what do they say because a lot of times people will say something to kind of make you reek wha, what did that mean rise to make you think before you start but in the the the Romney Campaign Against Obama that vice presidential debate biden wipe the floor. With the what's his name? The Republican? He was the speaker of the House and he he's a Paul Ryan. All Ryan. Yeah he's a he's a fake. Yeah. Fake conservative. And Yeah Biden. whipped him in the debate. Yes. So he's he's not a bad debater if he's if he's Going on his own. So the strategy begins now I guess, of course,
First night of Democratic National Convention Round-Up
"Democratic Party opened its quadrennial convention Monday night with two hours of virtual programming. was, a mix of speeches by high profile political figures, messages from ordinary Americans interview segments, news ICAL interludes. Kim Any any general impression that hit you from the first night. Well to General Impressions. The first is that we have now gone a completely to the point where conventions are what everyone feared they are, which is that they are giant infomercials you know, and that's been pretty obvious for a number of cycles that the business of conventions has become almost an afterthought and it's really about. Presenting these people in pitching for the party out there with the nation and that you're not having anything in per a person all you had was this long stream of folks talking that was very much like an extended again campaign commercials. So that was noticeable. I think that the other major impression is that Democrats are not going to be running. All on an agenda, this year anything to do with their policies for me. What I saw in this range of speakers talked they they spanned the entire Party spectrum but they all had the same themes which is at Donald. Trump is horrible. He has mismanaged the Cova crisis and his character is terrible and therefore this is a referendum on him. Starting with the first of those points, I? Mean it's been a long time since the last contested convention the last convention where delegates went in truly not knowing who the nominee was going to be though every four years it seems like political fanatics think this year could be the year but I agree with Kim bill that it was particularly obvious this year because of the format that there's really nothing going on except commercials here I mean, what do you make of the format? It was more of A. A A variety show in the typical convention, a short speech, and then you had a a soccer star interviewing health workers. There were quicker quicker cuts between segments. So maybe that's more engaging in a an attention span challenged age, but you sort of lose the energy of having a stadium full of people cheering their brains out. Yeah. Absolutely. Cut Look in fairness to them. This is something very new. You know they've had to improvise no one's done it before. So it's easy to make fun of them, but I think the problem is. It was pretty boring I felt as though I was watching a PBS telethon over some issue where various people would come on to lecture me about something and that's partly due to the format. You know when you go to a convention like you said, there's nothing like a room it's usually a stadium or a basketball arena full of cheering people you know gives you a lot of energy in all the it's all about fun and access you have people dressed up and crazy outfits, and so forth you know all completely partisan. Convention everyone's on the same side and the purposes to generate some enthusiasm I thought this was really odd. I without without Joe Biden, you know it's not. it's not typical to hear from the presidential nominee until the end, right. So that's but usually you see pictures of sitting in his seat with his family watching you know watching the proceedings cheering along at different people I thought of all the speakers. you know Muslim seem pretty angry I get that you know the campaign strategy is to blame Donald Trump for all the cova deaths and and that's the way they think their ticket is but I I don't think they have to be quite as angry because anger to me doesn't denote confidence and I think Joe Biden would be better to be a little more cheerful and the the people like that around and to be the Joe Biden that debated Paul Ryan. For example and I think did very well I'm not sure we saw that last night even Michelle. Obama you know she talked about going high but then sort of implied that people who disagreed with their did. So because she were as she was African, American I didn't really think that was a high note whereas Amy Klobuchar who got no attention I thought she gave a good convention speech was witty. It was cheerful and it was confident. But of course, no one. Really spoke of her contribution Kim. What else is missing this year if you've been to these conventions, many listeners probably haven't. They used to experiencing is just the big speeches on TV with lots of applause of lots of canned jokes can lines what what's the experience like being there that that's missing this year. A couple of things you know the real merit of a of a convention for both parties is that it's a great big party in the biggest sense of the word is the one time. Every four years were every political figure up ballot in down ballot in the party is all present in one place and so it's is a great opportunity. Especially, if you're a member of the media you would traditionally go out and you just bump into these folks and they have some interesting idea or something and you you end up writing about it, getting it, and so it's a place where. You get really get your hands on the mood within the Party and the issues and the ideas that are driving the party and the Internet rivalries. If there are any just not getting that this year and as a result it, I think the entire media coverage of the convention is is pretty hand because it's essentially about this lineup of speakers and you've missed any of the impromptu aspects of a convention that come from people being together. I think the other thing is that it also allows the party and this is a a detriment in my mind to the American public. It is allowed the party at least Democrats to to squelch any dissent or at least any public displays of stent. Usually when you go to these events, there are dissenters within the party they go down on the floor during the the discussions about the platform and they they disagree that this was in there that was in there Democrats went to A. Lot of effort to make sure that wasn't a theme that nothing like that could happen at this event and it would be hard to anyway because of the way of the format but Tom Perez, for instance, had the entire platform button-down and so for instance, nobody saw the fact that representative Rashida Labe who's one of the squad? She's a Democrat from Michigan. Voted no on the democratic platform on Saturday. As she was casting her vote from the DNC ballot because it didn't include a plan for single payer healthcare and if that kind of fight had happened in person at a convention, there might have been some legs to it. You might have had more of the progressives revolting but because all of this is being managed over zoom and and they know that there isn't much an opportunity to to to really get a movement going most people have just you know saluted and voted for the things that the party told him to vote for. So you're not seeing the traditional floor fights.
Coronavirus relief bill negotiations continue as benefits set to expire
"For more on the status of the next Corona virus relief package were joined by Bloomberg News Congressional reporter Eric Watson, Eric Watson, We heard. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell acknowledged that his members air all over the lot on the next relief bill. How does that this unity compared to Democrats? And what does that mean? As these negotiations come down to the wire and relief program start to expire? Well, I think Nancy Pelosi to have speaker and Chuck Schumer Senate Majority leader Really looking at this is giving them leverage. You know, if the car can get 51 members on board, you know, he really is is not showing a lot of muscle a star being behind this proposal of closely highlight that in a late on Monday. I'm just saying that they're in complete disarray, and we are seeing evidence of that. There was a Republican lunch on Tuesday and a lot of numbers came out there. Not comfortable with the $1 trillion price tag there not comfortable with lot of Parisians in here, and I think they're really looking to re establish their sort of deficit hawks on the CDs that we saw Republican Party The Paul Ryan era before Trump came along the base itself. One remind viewers and listeners what's in that $1 trillion Republican plan, the Heels act as it's called, Yeah, it's really about eight part plan and it's got a lot of different moving parts to the main part of the are a direct famous stimulus of $1200 per person making up to 75. Dollars that is almost exactly modeled on the March proposal that went out of most Americans was also an extension of the settlement. Unemployment insurance benefits, But not these six. Another level that we're seeing currently would lower to about $200 for two months and then have states come completed complex calculation to figure out And make sure people only getting a maximum 70% of their previous wages and status. It is difficult to implement that bill would give him another two much waver if they're having trouble also build more money for, you know, testing for education. 2/3 of the $70 billion for education tied School's reopening and Democrat Tristan. This is using a stick approach, and Trump is endangering the welfare of Children. It's really seeing that and plus their liability protection. This is Mitch McConnell's top Ah, ah, asking. This is to protect businesses from lawsuits if they reopen the coronavirus, and that's what he's going to be interesting on in any final. Billy's reiterated that again this week. And why is it his top? Asked. He made sure to emphasize that today it was the one part of the program that he briefly brought up after that Senate lunch that you that you attended in reporting on very closely aligned with the Chamber of Commerce. Half of Republicans, This is business concerns. A really raising this worry about trial lawyers coming in and making ah little money off a class action lawsuits and so forth things. They also an impediment to re opening businesses are concerned. With Jim Louie Vito are or regular office of having people see that they were less likely to tipping hired workers pass that his point of view that is diagnosis of the current situation, Democrats say Instead, let's have OSHA. Let's have the Occupational safety and Hazard. I'm sorry Health Administration come up with a strong standard of clear standard and you know companies get through. They could cite that they're complying with OSHA standards. You know, it is providing protective equipment and barriers and other social distancing measures. And that would solve the problem. I think you have some kind of compromise here. But there's big elements. This proposal from Republicans of shifting lawsuits from the states where torture normally handled to the federal government. And Democrats are loath to do that you mentioned compromised. Democrats air pushing their $3.5 trillion Heroes Act was passed in the house back in May 208 votes to 199 votes. Republicans, of course, pushing this $1 trillion plan, but it was Senate Republican Conference chairman John Thune, who today said I think there's a lot here to agree on. Where could be the lines of agreement? Well, it's it's officially if you have got two numbers here, and it's going to end up somewhere in between. That's what you know what Republicans are nervous about. You know, they're saying, we're start. Our opening day is not zero. It's one trillion is going to end up two trillion or more fear on that from Republican side. I think Democrats are hopeful. There are things in their provisions in there, bill, whether it's an Internet or water that probably could be tightened, taking care of elsewhere that's often been talked about today potential. Deal later on with Trump, especially, he's realized about infrastructure. So, um, it would be a priority for the bride administration, and he has the only thing that they can do and deal with later. They're more nice to have and have tohave. I think for Democrats really won the key one that's missing in that Republican president nearly $1 trillion for state and local governments. You know when the shutdown happen, revenue really dried up for a lot of these local and state governments, and there's they're facing the possibility of millions of people being laid off in the public sector. So Democrats are pushing out their top ask and, you know, I don't know if Republicans are hard, fast against that. Maybe there's a compromise there

An deep dive into Trump’s 2020 State of the Union speech
"I'm Audie Cornish in Washington earlier we heard from president Donald Trump and we just heard the voice of Michigan governor Gretchen Wimmer who presented the democratic response to president trump stated the union speech we have several folks here tonight to do some analysis about all that we heard we're gonna start within the within eighteen L. Shammi who was the chief of staff to speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi and Brendan Buck who was a spokesman for the former house speaker Paul Ryan bring you guys both in for your expertise how what we heard tonight now if you're on Twitter there were a lot of conservatives you you're you're using a lot of exclamation points and saying this is the best thing that they've ever heard Democrats not saying the same I want to start with you Brendan what did you make of the president's focus tonight how we deliver that yeah and this is certainly a confident president in a way that you know you might expect a president who's at his all time high in in the latest Gallup poll who is just really defeated impeachment and have the Democrats sort of in disarray he started off with all of those economic status just making the case that things are going well in this country talk about how we're we're not gonna turn back and really was just riding high right some of his quotes it insane three years of my administration three and a half million working age people of join the work force in leaning really hard into that at the top in it and it was a lot of job well done on my part and very little agenda going forward I counted this is not an official count but I counted only ten things in which he is calling on Congress to do anything in a lot of those were relatively small ball usually a president comes in with a big agenda here's all the things I want to do and you really have to dig in there to find them some of it is funding neo natal research funding a child tax credit sanctuary cities sending Americans to Mars things like that that don't really come together in a real way but another take way as as sue was talking about from the room if I've seen a lot of state of the union this was as divided and cold as I've ever seen you could almost hear brewing from some of the Democrats and that is just really stark and the Nancy Pelosi interactions yeah she she tried to shake his hand and he did do it she actually tore up his speech at the end that that's remarkable I've never seen anything like that the team let's have you jump in on your former boss there people were watching her and her behavior very closely but first your reaction to some of the things you heard tonight shoring it was a fascinating speech the king can I give you a look into president trump's mine and that we were hoping that he would meet the commander in chief test but then said that I believe he produced a speech that was made for TV made for TV moments and Brandon is exactly right some of the big issues bi partisan issues that he could work with Democrats on infrastructure he had two lines and infrastructure of prescription drugs he really did not go into specifics as to get me a bell and I will sign it these are opportunities lost a lucky get a showing at age she has to do is to tell Democrats thank you for working with me on U. S. M. C. A. and he didn't right you mentioned that it was signed by it was that yeah and and I and also in terms of I've I've seen many states to the union I've been there and I think this is stands up to when president Obama was to during the ACA negotiations and trying to get the bill passed it was it was that same feeling that you had in those to complete the process I want to take a moment now to fact check some of what we heard both the president's speech in the democratic response NPR's Scott Horsley is here to help us do that welcome Scott they do with it this speech was kind of the theme of it was the great American come back the president spent considerable time talking about the economy both his and the prior administration's but here's a sample of that in just three short years we have shattered the mentality of American decline and we have rejected the downsizing of Americans destiny we have totally rejected the downsizing we're moving forward at a pace that was unimaginable just a short time ago and we are never ever going back Scott who was Anderson economy were looking at the one the president's describing characteristically here Donald Trump exaggerates how strong the economy is now and how weak it was when he came into office the fact is the economy was pretty good in twenty seventeen and it's still pretty good now the economy last year grew two point three percent that is exactly the average for the last decade the U. S. added six point seven million jobs in the first thirty five months after trump took office pretty impressive but not unprecedented in the previous thirty five months the U. S. added nearly eight million jobs so really less of a comeback than a more less straight line continuation a lot of people also measure the economy by the size of their own paychecks right in this president described this as a blue collar boom after decades of flat and falling incomes wages are rising fast and wonderfully they are rising fastest for low income workers who have seen a sixteen percent pay increase since my election Scott Horsley is our chief economics correspondent and of course was a long time White House correspondents so to help us understand how he's trying to frame these specific numbers wage wages have been rising faster than inflation that's good for workers there read real purchasing power's been going up but wage gains of actually moderated in recent months in the twelve months ending in December average wages rose just two point nine percent compared to three point four percent earlier in the year and that deceleration in pay hikes is a little surprising given the very low unemployment rate we have now is encouraging as the president says that wages for people at the bottom of the income ladder have been rising faster than those the top that's partly because a lot of states have raised their minimum wages the present also talked about the very large stock market gains that we've seen since the election of twenty sixteen it is way up not seventy percent as he said but the Dow's up fifty seven percent stock ownership are is heavily concentrated among the rich eighty four percent of those gains have gone to just the top ten percent of earners and forty five percent of Americans don't own any stock at all I want to pause for a second and go to Ron Elving because when you think about the last impeach president he was giving a seat at the union is also the person we attribute this it's the economy stupid kind of sloganeering and so is this something that the president should lean hard into especially given what his democratic rivals are talking about why would he not why would he not take credit for where the car a condom use today presidents have suffered when the economy was poor even if it wasn't their fault and even when it wasn't really that bad and even when it was recovering I'm thinking here by George HW bush in nineteen ninety two very short very shallow recession and yet he was pummeled with it and that has happened in other occasions and we've also seen presidents come and office riding on a long recovery such as the one from say about two thousand nine two thousand ten forward into two thousand seventeen and tack on a few more years with policies and there's no question that this president has cut regulations and cut taxes what particularly for a corporations and to some to be wealthy individuals which has juice the economy if you're further but he did come in riding on a long recovery which may be slowing down a little bit now but he basically takes credit for all of it and says that when he came into office it was a situation of American carnage I want to come back to Scott Horsley here because another issue one of factcheck health care promises the president spoke about also Michigan governor Gretchen Widmer who delivered the democratic response here's an example of something the president spoke about one hundred and thirty two lawmakers in this room have endorsed legislation to impose a socialist takeover of our healthcare system wiping out the private health insurance plans of one hundred and eighty million very happy Americans to those watching at home tonight I want you to know we will never let socialism destroy American health care members we talk about the language is using their this is obviously divisive issue even within the Democratic Party some of the presidential candidates on the democratic side Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren have favored a single payer plan that would eliminate private insurance in warrants case over a period of time other Democrats though want to preserve a role for private insurance for those people who want it we should also point out the president did make what he called an iron clad pledged to protect patients with pre existing condition did he explain how we do that he he did not in this this is surely the biggest Whopper in tonight's speech the president knows a protection for patients with pre existing conditions as popular so he pays lip service to it but if anything his administration has has whittled away at those protections and of course they're they're fighting to overturn the affordable Care Act which is where those protections come from I want to talk about another big issue border security the president talked about this one even before he you know what it was the nominee and hit that thing again tonight my administration has undertaken an unprecedented effort to secure the southern border of the United States this statement seems vague but it's got I believe you've kind of dug into it what do you know the administration has made a series of sweeping changes to limit access to asylum seekers at the border I'd sent tens of thousands of migrants back to Mexico to wait for their day in immigration courts and administration credits those policies for a very sharp drop in the number of migrants who are being taken into custody the border in a last may we saw that number peek at a recent high about a hundred forty thousand last month the number was down to around twenty nine thousand so a drop of about eighty percent our allies in this gets at some of what we would call kind of red meat or culture were issues that we heard the president talking about he said he was calling upon members of Congress to pass legislation banning late term abortion of babies he talked about the idea of a sanctuary cities and kind of going after sanctuary states how did he balance this part of the speech with what we heard about the economy well I think those are the two parts of the president's campaign message one is to say you're better off now than you were four years ago the economy is great he said it's greater than ever before in American history but also the president is at heart a culture warrior and he believes that cultural issues are more powerful than economic ones and there is some evidence that might suggest he's right for instance the parts of the country that are reaping the most benefits from the trump economy are the ones where his approval ratings are the worst and the parts of the country that are not reaping the benefits that are doing badly record farm bankruptcy is a manufacturing recession those are the parts of the country where his numbers are the highest why I think because of the cultural issues he's pretty face the voters in those places think he's protecting them against criminal immigrants he talked about those he highlighted once again this is a staple for him a family whose family member has been killed by an undocumented immigrant so these are the two parts of his message one is you never had it so good and the other is you know the Democrats want to ruin your your way of life and that's the message to the public we want to talk about what it was like inside the capitol congressional correspondent kills the smell is there tonight moments ago she spoke with the second highest ranking Republican representative in the house that Steve Scalise we did see a pretty tepid response from Democrats on most things including things other were bye bye things that should have been bipartisan that always have been bipartisan it almost is is like they have this personal hatred against the president and they're letting it see through where they're opposing good policies and you should always put your personal differences on the

"Biden H. Q. Bernie Sanders campaign is unleashed a barrage of negative attacks lying about and distorting Joe's record there even pushing around a deceptively edited video and saying he agree with Paul Ryan about wanting to cut social security stop reading now what I get from that in trying to recount to you as screech screech Paul Ryan social security Joe Biden's on the defensive that's Liz warned Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden is Bernie leading in some poll I haven't seen John what's happened what thirty finishes well in the end and he always outperformed in key states in two thousand sixteen so we worry about the late Bernie surge based on his grassroots support the fact that he's well known for that race city three three hundred million dollars which for insurgent is pretty darn good scratch so the democratic establishment is paranoid about Bernie not only because they don't think you can be trumpet they think you would be terrible for the down ticket Democrats and remember John twenty twenty is the year in which we learn who will control the state legislature and redraw the districts in twenty twenty one and twenty twenty two and if birds at the top of the ticket they are terrified that they will be in a disadvantageous position no history says John whenever there's an anybody but movement that's the winner when everybody attacks one person that's the winner that's what history set is it different for the Democrats well the thing is with the Democrats are they're delegate selection process is so cumbersome so arcane that the Democrats still believe that as long as they prevent burning from getting a first ballot majority the super delegates of the second ballot can deliver the nomination to Biden and crush Burry the problem is that comes at a fearsome cost because Bernie's people will be convinced the election was stolen from them I see are your measure Bernie Sanders campaign has he done something differently recently that they're all suddenly fearful of him I thought that they were happy to have him bump along representing the progress of splitting the progressives of with Elizabeth Warren and then go away quietly well he the Democrats privately told me he fooled us he had a heart attack we thought he was dead and he kept organizing behind the C. setup is backed the star Democrat if what does that do a sense of false security so they were not ready for this were actually looking at a Democratic Party doesn't have a plan be about burning I I can't tell sometimes because these are all many of one foot in the grave Joe Biden attacking him on social security is that the way to go is that the way to stop burning who would who would doubt Bernie Sanders on social security who who would take him on a seventy nine years old you know just remember that the definition of an anybody but candidacy is you throw the kitchen sink that to live that's the definition of what

"Be honest about how he feels. He's never been stop. What are you stop security in some ways? It's laughable. You said this earlier Democrats Fall in love Republicans fall in line. We have seen Republicans online since president trump was elected and sort of coalesce around him sure maybe they're things that he's wanted to do any more extreme way or that. He wanted to do in general that he didn't get done but we've basically seen president trump move forward on a lot of the most bombastic and sort of extreme things that he's wanting to do that. I'm still not really sure what Paul Ryan feels does that. He's not this ridiculous. Part of that quote from Paul Ryan is Paul. Ryan was the architect of attacking Obamacare is the first thing that Donald Trump did out of the box. That was a defining moment for the trump presidency in that first six months in a way that was not what the president wanted to do. I know that for a fact from talking to the president he wanted you're saying Ryan was part of the problem but we'll be tastes Ryan. Ryan Ryan is now trying to make himself look like oh I was the guy who's controlling everything. He was one of the propeller heads who got this president to go after Obamacare's the first thing out of the box it was a monumental legislative failure off the box and wasted a ton of political capital of the president spent a tax cuts an infrastructure running on a divisive pick. I wasn't going to do this but Chris's right pains me. Nobody here's the summertime the tactical had the president come out with infrastructure it would divided Democrats. He came now with healthcare on Obamacare repeal united us at a very point and we're not only divided Democrats divide us from our base about working with them and it was a very major strategic mistake in a lot of oxygen political capital but I also take note on all this rex rex tillerson walks out of the White House calls the guy in more the ambassador from you still with the administration when he said well it was capital when he worked out the ambassador England Same Observation Paul Ryan basically the same observation anybody who works for this guy up close says you have a most incompetent basically more on in the Oval Office that is their conclusion and at some point damper. Where's no close instant become obvious friendly fire governor well? No it's not really I mean this. I told the president from the beginning that Paul Ryan was not someone as the speaker the trust and trust his judgment. There's no listen Paul's a very good food. Policy Guy is Paul no that he's not he's not very good. Politically we prove it and we've proven that the president responded by by listening to rights pre-bus and trusting Paul Ryan on that issue.

"And I mean, just look at the wall just look at the shutdown. I asked Ron Johnson a couple of weeks ago. I said, what's what's McConnell strategy here on the shutdown? He said Vicky, we don't have one. So we don't even I mean on something as easy as a layup. It's a slam dunk, and they didn't have a strategy on it. So I'm pretty sure that we're not going to see any sort of, you know, whiz bang. Awesome own of the left for this one. Well, you know, we want back to the, you know, the first two years of the Trump presidency and the GOP controls both the house and Senate Paul Ryan Mitch McConnell did nothing to deal with the issue of illegal immigration. Okay. They did something. There's no doubt about that. But they left a lot on the table. And that really pisses me off because when you have power you have to be willing to use it not a whim, but when necessary that's why the people on the right gave them what they ask for. All right. The GOP said give us a house. Give us the Senate. Give us the White House. We gave them the resources. So now, the president comes along and says give me five point seven five point eight billion dollars to serve our southern border and protecting states, and they didn't give them the resources. So, you know, here we sit down the president will lay it out. I thought he did a great job of laying out his vision for America in the last state of the union address last year, especially. Relates to illegal immigration. He gave us four pillars. They acted GOP congress acted on none of it. So when we're sitting here today. We're talking about shutdowns and Senator Johnson. Talks about no strategy. That is the fault of the GOP on the hill because the constitution is very clear. All right. The congress shell form rules on naturalization or the immigration issue. And they won't do it. Now, we know why the Democrats won't do it. But the, you know in the late stages in the last congress when when the house went back, and then put forth a Bill in the house that they nuclear couldn't get through the Senate. But then again, it's about the use of power and Mitch McConnell. The Senate rules, and he's sort of got rid of that sixty vote threshold to move a Bill to the floor for a vote. But again, he didn't have the courage. He didn't have the will he wants to try to get along with Democrats. The Democrats are trying to slit their throats metaphorically. And he doesn't realize that he's still thinks and it's this stuff about another day the stuff about well. You know, they'll come day when we're not in power. And and we we wouldn't want them to do that us. Well, guess what they're going to do it to you. Because right. Crashed through the door. They do not care about any of this nonsense this traditional nonsense in in political warfare there come hell or high water. They're gonna move their agenda. They know it's.

"Also. Aroused in the White House had talked about. So why not why would he holds it? Why would the president hold a rally when he can this is the state of the union? Why hold a rally when he can go and address the entire country mean, I guess the big question is what are you afraid of him saying, are you afraid of him quoting Democrats who have talked about how walls and barriers work. Are we afraid of talking about the number of illegal aliens who were stopped or drugs from coming in in places, like human Tucson in San Diego, and Tempe were walls have been have been erected successfully? Are they afraid of talking about the tax cut having led to eight million Americans having raises or bonuses are both in the repatriation dollars? What was everybody? So afraid of the president saying the state of the union that you would deny the country the ability to hear it's president ID Nancy Pelosi is worried that some chamber won't show up, and that's not an embarrassment to the president meant to her. They should be there. If you don't want to applaud, they don't wanna stand. They don't wanna smile it wanna wear color gay. But show the dignity and serve the people who elected you in your state in your district and show up. Are we going to deny seats to the first lady's guests? I certainly hope not. When I talk to people about President Obama, and how he was treated a lot of people in the left say that no president has ever been treated with this kind of disrespect. And I say, of course, tell me the most serious instance in which Obama was treated with disrespect. And if they can come up with an answer off in the camp. But if they come up with an answer, it usually as well remember that time Joe Wilson, the Republican congressman yelled out you lie during the state of the union speech. Never mind. You Wilson apologize day policy is the next day. I probably still apologizing for them some bars somewhere. Meanwhile. The president of the United States has been disinvited from giving the state of the union speech in the well of the house. Had bainer Paul Ryan disinvited Obama and claim the region they were doing it is because of security concerns. When the security agencies in charge of providing security for this event say no there's no problem. We have this covered. But Paul Ryan Steele disinvited the president or John bainer still disinvited the president. What do you think would happen? How many editorials would be written about this? How many attacks? Paul Ryan or John bainer. Would they be right? Of course, would be the obligatory accusations of racism. Has this ever happened? We're a invitation to give the state of the union speech has been extended and then retracted claiming security concerns, even though the people in charge of security say that they've got this covered. Are you kidding me? Kellyanne Conway says why aren't you talking about the fact that Nancy Pelosi lied? When she said that we're concerned about security because the agency say, otherwise that's part of it. Why aren't you talking about the phenomenon of the speaker because of political differences with the president inviting him from giving the state of the union speech? Joe Wilson said you lie. All my goodness. Racism. But Nancy Pelosi can disinvite the president from giving a state of the union speech. Citing a bogus reason in the media. Democrats don't want us there because they're too good. Good job. And I always talk about well now, that's one of the real hot beds for for the MS thirteen gangs. And I just see this morning where the really radical Democrats don't want them because they don't wanna do anything to disturb MS thirteen. And when you think about it, Mr. kimes about the most.

Then a a man who's decided he was going to go to the many in the masses and the poor and say, I am going to make everything in your life better because your life is ruined by capitalism. And the evil greed, then to take everything over as much as you possibly can taking over foreign companies that everything else driving the economy into the ground. Even when oil prices were up starving the nation, hyper inflation. It's nuts to watch it. It's crazy. It is crazy. To watch the way this thing is is falling apart.

"Here speaking with Michael Barone, senior political analyst Washington Examiner. Nationally noted for his views. So Michael getting to the wall and the government shutdown. I hate asking the following question. Because people spent too much time on the winning and losing question rather than what's right or wrong. But in any event, it's not negligible. Who's winning the president or the Democrats? I would say the president may be winning in the sense that you get some democratic members of congress who actually. You know, walls, work or. At least their constituents thinks that walls working. Of course, there is a funding that is true. So I think there's some lost there. I would add. However, it did I seek Justice. The public posse measure that Mr. Trump could've have changed much more easily when Republicans had a majority in both houses of congress and failed to do. So for a variety of reasons. So that the author of the art of the deal was not in this case, a particularly skillful practitioner of the art. Yards. And I have to ask you because I post this on the air. You said a variety of reasons give me to what the president did not. That's right. Already in the house. Well, I think number one Paul Ryan, the speaker of the house until January third and other Republican leaders didn't really want the changes in immigration law that President Trump was seeking. And so they said, well, let's not a showdown now we'll get to this issue later, and his is is often the case later never came. And I think you had some of the action on that on the part of President Trump's staff, including director, Mick Mulvaney who epoch. The president yelled that according to a town in the news at papers today in the course of the current negotiations. Again, you know, and Dave led the president to do what the Democrats are now saying that they want him to do which is let's open the government now. And then we'll negotiate in good faith about giving your your quarter barriers. In other words, translated into English. That means we want you to cave in and you'll never get what you will. Correct. Right Lucy into football. But the the first reason was Paul Ryan Paul Ryan was against the wall. Paul Ryan was against the of packages of of of immigration reforms that President Trump was seeking can take the list. Right. I understand Miller's lists killed four. And they didn't shut shutdown not over realistic shutdown is over a wall. That's right. And I think that the wall was the most vivid promise, the President Trump made to voters the two thousand sixteen election that is occurred to him now that we better new congress that he's never really delivered on it. Then that he needs to do. So even want about the arguments weaker, Michael what about the argument that this is unprecedented that and it will form a terrible precedent? If this democratic president in that, he he or she will also be able to say, hey, you don't pass this in the budget. We have no we have a government shutdown. Well, I think we've seen government shutdowns with presidents with houses of congress both parties. So you know, castration provides a way for the government to be funded. But. The people in the. Slate of an executive branches has to approve that after the cast doesn't happen automatically. So I don't think there's a Houston will argue night gets there. One is also less painful to the American people because the Republican tax to its credit speaker Ryan some credit here to has passed appropriations bills funding three quarters of the government. So this isn't one of those things where we've got a continuing resolution that covers all aspects of the government up for grabs him not being approved. It's a smaller part of the thesis of your article, which I read stalemate is Trump goes factual, Democrats illogical tell my listeners what you mean, Trump goes factual, Democrats illogical. Well, if you read President Trump's presidential address from the Oval Office, you listened to what you read it. He basically what he was saying was factual. He was calling for you were saying that their saints severe problem on the border. That is growing in in numbers, which is true. That we're getting. People who got humanitarian problem there. Among other things with people on both sides of the border now. Keep to come here on asylum basis, which really has no basis in law and that. Border barrier. He used the term specifically barrier. Not law. You said in about towards Democrats as you said would reduce the problem substantially. I think that's true. When you have Democrats saying that the walls are ineffective. Factually wrong laws are effective. Even the fear has one tanker. Smith said medieval, they work vastly reduce illegal border crossing San Diego area. The you Mary El Paso area, and so forth. Just walls area moral because they distinguish between US citizens and noncitizens. Well, hello. I guess that's an argument for open borders. If we can't make a distinction between citizens and non-citizens that means anybody can enter and stay in the United States, and we can just you know, our immigration laws in that. You don't have any Richard Fox News and talk radio have played. The schumer. Statements of just ten years ago has changed because the basis change. We just have a few seconds. Yeah. He's changed. Because you know, why are the Democrats Trump insisting on don't walk because he campaigned on it. Why are the.

And he was this close to not signing into vetoing it, but in the end common sense prevailed and President Trump realizes that he cannot shut down the government before Christmas. And therefore, they think this is all for show. That's what they are saying it CNN. Threw it to some reporter somewhere. Well, I wouldn't be so sure, you know, the one thing about Donald Trump is we never know what he's gonna do which is which is true. But they're trying to comfort themselves in the drive by media that all of this is for show, and they're talking about the fact that this has happened before that there have been threatened government shutdowns and Trump is huffed and puffed. But in the end, he has gone ahead and kept government opened by giving Democrats, whatever they want and in this in this case Republicans to and that's true too. This is why all of this argues for drawing a line in the sand. We're talking. Not talking about five billion, by the way. Can I mentioned another aspect of this is not even being mentioned? We're talking about federal spending here it is out of control. We're going to have a total expenditure in this fiscal year of over four trillion dollars. We don't have it. I am convinced that something has happened in Washington. And maybe it's not recent. But I don't I think all of the talk whenever there is talk about spending restraint or responsibility is just that. Because there isn't a person in that town that is actually acting as though they're concerned about it. I actually wonder why do we even need a budget? Because there's no pretense at trying to balance it, and we have money raised taxes, which is at an all time high, by the way. Washington is collecting more money. From all of it sources than ever before. Largely because of tax cuts tax cuts always result in more money to Washington because more jobs are created more tax payers are created. But as this money comes in the spending. There's no correlation to the two. We've got we've got monthly deficits now of three hundred billion dollars. It used to be that was the annual deficit. Now, it's three hundred billion dollars per month. That is a deficit. I'm convinced that most people in Washington don't think there really is any budgetary reason for not spending money. There is no clerical reason. There's no. Pressure to balance the budget. There's no need to balance the budget, just spend the money we can print it. And we've got the Federal Reserve over there to keep the economy and checked by raising interest rates, which that is an entirely different subject. And that is a nother attempt at sabotaging Trump this fed chairman Jerome what's his face drum powers at his name raising interest rates in this economy is crazy. But they're doing it and talking about even it's not just the interest rates that they've raised recently. It's the promised to keep doing it next year. And the market continues to Louis value. And it's fascinating to watch the media markets losing value today because Trump might shut down the government don't insult my intelligence people. Invest money are not sitting at oh my God government shutdown sell sell. That's not at all. How this happens? So much of this trading is automated. And done by computers based on algorithm input and so forth. The idea that the stock market's down because Trump might shut down the government. It's just another bunch of media dribble. Designed to create the impression that everybody hates Trump. Because nothing Trump does is right. And there's nothing that he's doing that anybody understands that nobody agrees with anything. He's doing is totally out of control. And yet this guy who doesn't know what he's doing and has no business being there and is dangerously incompetent has produced more positive results for the US economy in two years than happened in all of eight years with Barack Obama who was the most seasoned veteran. We could have had the most responsible the most sophisticated the most intellectual the most knowledgeable you'd be hard pressed to find economic activity like this in the first two years of any presidential term. You have all these insiders cannot hold a candle. And of course, what's on on the on the table is slowing down. We cannot allow any of this to be seen as caused by Donald Trump. We cannot allow any credit to accrue to Donald Trump. So possibility of a government shutdown market selloff. It's because of Trump. Everything is because of Trump back to the and this isn't going to change he cannot buy he cannot purchase their goodwill. He cannot purchase their support. He cannot by the lack of criticism. He cannot stop them from criticizing him. He cannot stop them. He cannot. Do anything that's going to change the way they approach him. Their objective is to get rid of him. And they're gonna keep trying to do it throughout the next two years. No matter what. So. His thinking ought to be just to continue to rack up wins continue to do the right things based on his own instincts. He ran for office following instincts and those instincts are correlated and oriented around making America, great, again, we all knew what that meant. Because America does need to be made great again because America's under attack. America's founded is under attack. And there are substantive reasons why this agenda won the presidency, and there's no reason to abandon it whatsoever. Federal judge strikes down Trump's asylum rules for domestic and gang violence victims. And guess who this is? This is our old, buddy. Judge Emmet Sullivan. The same judge who had no idea what was going on. He didn't even know the details of the case. The Michael Flynn case the Flynn plea that was supposed to happen earlier this week the judge. It was stunning was was was. Amazingly uninformed about the details. Asking seems to me you register a foreign agent for Turkey, you committing treason. Mr. prosecutor, are you going to charge him with treason? He is not registered as a lobbyist for Turkey. After Trump won the election. It was not. But the judge didn't know that the judge thought Flynn had become a secret agent for Turkey after Trump won the election after he'd been named national security adviser, and he's up there demanding asking the prosecutor, you're going to charge this guy with treason. Somebody got to the judge over the lunch break is it. No, no. He quit that job. He did that that was long ago. And the judge had to apologize in the bachelor. The damage is done the drive bys are all day out there reporting. Flynn wanted to plead guilty and end this. It was it was a fiasco. So now, the same judge judge Emmet Sullivan US district court in Washington ruled. That the harsher Justice department policies ordered by Jeff Sessions were quote, arbitrary capricious and in violation of immigration laws because quote is the will of congress not the whim of the executive that determines the standard for expedited removal. The court finds that those policies are on awful. It was a one hundred seven page opinion. So what this is about back in June. Jeff Sessions issued a statement clarifying. The fact that domestic or gang violence are not grounds for asylum. Meaning if you live in war torn San Cordova. And your husband is beating you up. Or a gang is terrorizing your home that does not make you eligible for asylum. This was a statement that clarified existing United States positions on circumstances where asylum would be granted on Wednesday. Judge Sullivan said that what sessions policy was was arbitrary capricious and in violation of immigration laws. But in my humble estimation. The judge is wrong. In fact, just like his comments during the Flynn sentencing appearance showed that Sullivan hadn't bothered to read the details of Flynn's case. This ruling shows that he couldn't be bothered to look at the actual law. It is spelled out in the federal registry..
"paul ryan" Discussed on The 11th Hour with Brian Williams
"So that's another huge change from where we were just several months ago. Wilson I'm going to give you an open net goal. I'm gonna give you a layup shot. You choose the metaphor. How will Paul Ryan be remembered in terms of the great profiles, and courage and politics and the last couple of decades? I could get in so much trouble with this when Brian, but I'm going to stop myself for once, but the profiles in encourages reply by profiles in chicken. And you know, what the last word in that phrases? He Paul Ryan squandered his reputation and basically gave away the store to Donald Trump. He turned the house over as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Trump organization instead of being a member or leader of a co equal branch of government. And so I think his his legacy is going to be defined strictly as how he behaved towards Trump. No one's going to remember Paul Ryan wanna do, you know, fix the gigantic problem of entitlement reform? No one's going to remember Paul Ryan wanted to balance the budget. They're going to remember that Paul Ryan, basically behaved like a junior manager at Trump golf course. When it came to what Donald Trump wanted in the house of representatives for two years and basically ended up because of that decision lost the majority because of that. Decision to to accommodate Trump on every factor. And to pretend that he wasn't constitutionally obligated to be a leader of a Coequal branch of government that you know, he he advocated that that responsibility in that position. That's that's going to be the legacy. Sadly, and Rick. I've also heard it said just in the last twenty four hours that for McConnell this fifty three forty seven advantage may not feel like it at all watch. There be a thing made up of a kind of coalition of west of the Mississippi or even Rocky Mountain Republicans. Some of them are up in two years. Some of them looking at you Mitt Romney aren't who start to do some wavering as we're already seeing on the shutdown. Well, that's exactly correct. Brian twenty twenty eighteen was the good year for Republicans when the eight seats were competitive, they're going to be over twenty Republican seats that are up in twenty twenty that are going to be competitive. They're going to be in danger. And a lot of them are in purple states away. Out of them are in places like Maine and Colorado where they're not gonna have this easy skate of pretending. It's Alabama or Mississippi or Arkansas, they're going to be in places where voters actually don't like Donald Trump very much, and they're going to be asking the question. Are you representing us or you're representing this Trump movement in DC? And so I think you're gonna see as you saw with Cory Gardner today. Your organization of nervousness that it's going to grow. And as the Trump as the cost of Trump is amount. And especially if the economy and the market continue to go down to go south. These guys are going to run for the tall grass because politicians are ultimately survivors. They ultimately understand that the their career and their position depends on whether they do the things that they're state in their districts want, not just what Donald Trump wants every day Bill Kristol in thirty seconds or less. How much change are? We app to see in two twenty nineteen this'll be the year of fill in the blank. No, I think it's going to be pretty wild to them Bulloch report next month. God knows about the economy and the markets foreign policy crises confirmation just the next couple of weeks, but attorney general perhaps that new secretary of defense. I mean, all the open positions you've mentioned. So I think twenty nineteen we'll make twenty eighteen look like a comu-. Wow. Okay. Gentlemen. Thank you very much Bill Kristol one of the setting kings of the Republican political ideal. Rick Wilson, Ditto prior to Florida prince of periscope may I add gentlemen. Thank you very much for.
"paul ryan" Discussed on WMAL 630AM
"President Trump in the first two years of his presidency was able to shake some things up and was able to make his case that things had to change in this town, but only up to a certain extent because if he pushed it too far he was then undermining his own party's leadership in the house in the Senate and contrary to what many insiders in this town and establishment Republicans and conventional thinkers in this town believe the fact is the president actually was quite deferential. When all was said and done to Paul Ryan and to Mitch McConnell. He could have been a lot harder on them. He could've pushed things a lot harder. But he was told no, please don't don't push on this anymore. Mr President just sign this Bill make it a law, and then once we're re elected, and we maintain the majority then we'll be able to change things. Well, how'd that work out? They ended up losing any way. And I think that Trump has learned his lesson. And I think now because he doesn't have that. That false barrier because he can push on his issues, and it's not jeopardizing the majority in the house anymore because they don't have the majority in the house where he can be a little more unplugged. And I think that's what we're witnessing right now with him holding the line on the wall spending. So I think for all those reasons he excels, and I think that it puts them in a good position. But I could be wrong. In fact, many people think abroad. So let me hear from you eight eight eight six three zero nine six two five. We'll start we'll start with one agreement Keith and Gaithersburg thinks that might be onto something you're on wwl. Hey, keith. Larry. You're I think you're spot on here. I've been telling all my my liberal friends who are who are gloating on sort of giggling at ten because I think this is a guarantee that Trump will be reelected. Here's the reason why I think is because the fact that they re elected Pelosi shows that they want the same old thing. That's keep talking about racism. Let's keep talking about misogyny, or whatever, you know, all that same old stuff, and that will be so easy to to play into it. Oh, that's the way Trump argues. I mean, he's going to be the same argument from the Democrats all the time it shows that they don't want anything. They want the same stuff. And that's what's going to happen. I think that he all he has to do is stand strong because Nancy Pelosi thinks that she's been elected president. Yeah. He's already overplaying her cards, you know, running around and she thinks as long as the media carries a water for her that she's going to win every time and it won't work key famous. The president has veto power. He has veto power. He has the bully pulpit. He has Twitter, and he has the ability to communicate to us outside of the confines of the media, Keith all great points. And by the way, Keith said something very important here that by electing Nancy Pelosi. The Democrats have presented to the American people the same old thing. And boy is he right? Listen to this we gather in this chamber for a sacred ritual under the dome of this temple of democracy. The capital of the United States. We knew the great American experiment. I'm particularly proud to be woman speaker of the house of this congress which marks the one hundred year of women having the right to vote. I don't know doesn't speak to a new generation in my mind. It doesn't inspire my kids. I could be wrong. But the same old thing, I think is a good way to put it. All right. How about iris in Manassas iris your on WMA L? What do you think of today's events? It's historic. I'm not ready for it. Larry, I can't I already don't understand, you know, the the logic behind what the Democrats said it implements already down to like zero percent understanding that it's hard to understand her son laying down to a negative twenty five percent. I'm so disappointed at the leadership in the democrat party among Tina, I am twenty nine years old. So I should be happy. For four days. And I'm not, I'm Catholic. So so Nancy hurt it hurts them heart. Yeah. Thank you know, what she's going to try to implement as abortion and person poor for Planned Parenthood..
