"president jeb bush" Discussed on Intelligence Squared U.S. Debates

"I want to thank intelligence squared for inviting me to be here tonight. To argue the premise that Donald Trump is not bad for comedy an issue. I felt passionately about for over quarter of a century. As my colleague, Kurt pointed out, we're not here. The bar for us for our team is not to to argue the dome. Trope is good for comedy though, though, I'll take that position at least partially, but that's simply that he's not bad for comedy. And in that regard. I I would ask you all to consider the contra positive situation in which we might have found ourselves at this point if things had gone very differently on election day two thousand sixteen which is that we would have. Perhaps president Jeb Bush or president Marco Rubio or president Hillary Clinton or even president Bernie Sanders. Would any of those people have been better for comedy than Donald Trump? I don't think so I think we would be in a situation where we would see not only the shows that Kurt brought up with significantly lower ratings. But conceivably some of them off the air all together as tripoint out. We're not arguing whether Donald Trump is good or bad, and we're not arguing whether Donald Trump is good or bad at comedy. But I would argue that Donald Trump whether or not you think he's funny uses comedy, particularly ridicule. Very effectively Donald Trump actually gets his audience, and possibly some people on the fringes of his audience worked up on his side and changes their minds by virtue of the way that he uses ridicule and that. Is not something that happens perhaps as often as those of us who work in comedy like to think it does. And I think an example that maybe it's top of mind for a lot of us is his referring to Senator Elizabeth Warren as Pocahontas, which one person seems to think is funny. But the rest of you, maybe not so much, and I'm not going to express an opinion about that as a as a aknowledged professional in the in the area. But I'll say it forced her to do something, which I would say at least at this point appears to have been a terrible error possibly one. That's maybe disqualifying in terms of ambitions to be president. So that's an effective use of comedy. That is good for comedy in that it proves its its potency. But which perhaps is a bad thing. And every other way that that you can think of however. If you agree with that from I believe, you still have to support our side. I will report to you listening on radio or on the podcast that are opponents have left the stage. And. I don't know they were shaking their heads. And we're just going to try and carry on. Thank you. Thank you, Billy Kimball. Conclude round one of this intelligence squared US debate where our resolution is Trump is bad for comedy. Now, we move onto round two and round to the debaters address one of the other directly, and they take questions from me. And from you our live audience here at the Cape playhouse in New York City the team arguing four the resolution. Trump is bad for comedy, Sara Schaefer, and PJ O'Rourke are saying that conditions for comedy under the Trump era have turned sour that when we cannot disagree on the truth. You can't really set up the premise of joke in the first place comics are actually afraid they're being harassed team. Arguing against the resolution, Kurt Anderson and Billy Campbell. They're saying it's issue isn't whether comedy Trump is good for comedians. But whether it is good for comedy. They're saying, yes. From the point of view of how the industry is doing they point to the ratings of shows on Trump and how well. They're doing and bottom line. They say because of Trump audiences today are dying to laugh and Sarah. I want to take it back to you that this notion that audiences are dying to after Kurt Andersen laid out you challenged that I think to some degree in your opening statements to take a response to that..

"Republicans wanna go on healthcare and they are very split on the tax cut. And there is a real argument to make with these voters on fiscal responsibility that I think a lot of the Democrats that are running in this district are going to do. So I don't accept that. We, if all voters care about is the economy and if that's their top issue heading into the voting booth in November that they automatically pull the lever for Republican. I think Democrats have a really good case to make on economic issues as well. These are also highly educated pretty nuanced voters. And we do find that they're very split on who to give credit for the economy to. They know that you know, Donald Trump took office a little more than a year ago. So they're like, well, bomb deserve some. Credit too, but it's also this is just the fiscal cycle. This is how things go like they're, they're not willing to just say, yes, Republicans are always better for the economy Lisa. What are you saying to Republican candidates who are in these suburban districts that's different from what you were telling them in? Oh, six or ten or twelve or fourteen? Or is it still the same? I mean, I mean a lot of it's the same. I think part of the difference this cycle is an six voters had a real problem with a lot of the policies of President Bush mostly that that was around the Iraq war, obviously. And this cycle most of the problems in around the president himself, how they see his character and the way he behaves and in not is much around the actual policies and, and that's what's interesting alley because I agree with Lisa point that it seems to be so much more personality focused than policy focused. And yet when. They meet democratic candidates, and I watched democratic ads. They don't talk about Donald Trump. They don't talk about his personality. They talk about health care for the tax Bill or some other issue. So how much of the race is going to be determined by personality versus the issues we'll Democrats don't need to talk about Donald Trump's personality. Because as I like to say, the Trump circus is happening. It is happening around us every day and everyone knows it. And I think that there are plenty of Donald Trump's policies that are pretty unpopular from pulling out of the Paris climate accord to the tariffs, I think have some real potential for some opposition. Even, you know their crown jewel. The tax cut is very mixed. I mean, it's there. It's pretty split. Evenly healthcare is a problem for them. Bush had Katrina, Donald Trump has Puerto Rico, you know, there's a lot of corruption issues and misuse of taxpayer dollars that I think our problems for people in the suburbs. So I, I think Democrats are running on a policy agenda. And I think again, the personality of Donald Trump is the backdrop for everything, but they know that that is only opened the door for for a democrat to walk through and they need to prove themselves in order to walk through that door and actually get elected, at least if this were president Jeb Bush or president Mitt Romney right now, would we be talking about the suburban vote as being so critical in this election that these would be real swing districts? Well, I'm, I mean, I think we still be talking about. I don't know if we'd be seeing the enthusiasm that we're seeing not just among st- traditional democratic voters in these districts, but amongst college educated women who have really either been independence or a lot of 'em. These suburban districts have been soft Republicans or establishment Republicans or whatever sort of definition wanna give them..

"United states about trump's two nominations so fug go such and kevin is there an element of the trump affected work he though have they been more controversial because donald trump appointed them by which i guess i'm asking would it have seemed remarkable if president jeb bush oh president marco rubio president mitt romney had picked odds of these two so i think both neal gorsuch in brick kevin are exactly the sort of people that george w bush might have appointed when he was president certainly the kind of people that jeb bush or marco rubio would have appointed but i think liberals would have been agitated in response to those decisions because liberals understand just like conservatives understand how important the supreme court is i think the extra agitation we might be detecting traces to the fact that antonin scalia dies about a year before president obama leaves office the president therefore had the prerogative to nominate someone to fill his seat president obama sensing the possibility of a backlash nominates a not even a liberal judge moderate judge merrick garland to fill scalise eat and the republicans refuse to even meet with him refuse to have hearings refuse to seat him they refused even have a vote on whether to approve merrick garland and i think that left the supreme court with only eight seats for a year or so so that wants president trump was in an office he could install his own person and i think the democrats were upset about that at the time but because they thought hillary clinton was going to win the election they weren't as upset as they might have been but now they're really realizing what a travesty that was that that was their chance to get a liberal on the court or at least a moderate on the court someone that my it ruled on decision somewhat down the middle and they lost that and so i think the vitriol is fueled by this sense that the democrats have had a supreme court seats stolen from them realistically though e even in the most nightmarish projection how much could a heavily trump influence supreme court supposing he gets to nominate another two or three more judges which is not by any means impossible some of them getting any younger how much damage you'll reversal could they do to what might be thought of as as progress especially in in civil rights in recent decades because as is the case in in any situation what is already there has a certain power the status quo does take some shifting however determined and powerful to people who are trying to shift it absolutely so brett kavanagh's is going to be replacing justice anthony kennedy anthony kennedy was widely regarded as the swing vote on the court someone who sometimes sided with the liberals especially on social issues such as gay rights such as a portion rights but often sided with conserve on issues such as business regulation now what's clear is that brett kavanagh is probably going to be a few notches to the right of anthony kennedy and that will mean the swing vote on the court is the chief justice john roberts who's a stalwart conservative appointed by george w bush so there's no doubt that the court with brett cavanaugh on it is going to be further to the right and that's going to have implications so a lot of states are trying to pass laws that ship away at the right to abortion and the supreme court has held time and time again that you can regulate abortion so long as you don't put what's called an undue burden on the decision to seek an abortion will what counts as an undue burden this gives the court some latitude to reinterpret that in a way that's going to be favorable to some social conservatives in based on his past opinions it's highly likely that brett cavanaugh is going to vote in favor of those restrictions now whether this will mean that he's going to come down and support a.

"The style in which it's been done but if you just take a look at what they've done the agenda that they have moved forward on actually is fundamentally quite conservative if you look at that tax overhaul if you look at what they've done in terms of regulatory reform if you look at appointments the supreme court and other federal courts really the policy agenda that this administration has pursued is not a whole lot different of the policy agenda that a president jeb bush a president marco rubio would have put would have pursued so and then they merely style issued a style but but at the end of the day we're we're not necessarily left with the style we're left with the substance and so the question has to be as we move toward two thousand eighteen is this administration gonna continue along that path way or are they going to be looking toward a midterm election thinking about ways to capture more voters potentially for republicans and race around the country and also where else can the republicans get together they got together on taxes that was something that spans there was an ever republicans interest what's the next issue that is going to be like that we don't know that yet maybe it's maybe it's infrastructure but that involves a lot of government investment and there's the conservative republicans don't really want that so where are they going to come together next because time is taking may only have you know several months left before the midterm elections and so scott how in the president's policies on things like immigration offshore drilling climate change taxes affecting the republican party in california well i mean i think i do agree that if you go through the the achievements the direct actions taken by president trump a lot of them are surprisingly conventional but i don't think that you can dismiss style and substance so easily because that's the main way that most people interact with the president they they see him in the news they see them on their twitter feed they see him in social media and that does have an effect and i think that is one reason why president trump as a low approval rating even the of the economy is going so well and i think the biggest change that republicans.
