The sin is abortion and the great news uses that planned parenthood is being funded at least partially planned parenthood.

"Twitter. The people who are saying actually trump kinda has a point here to very uncomfortable thing because it's not you know it's not trumpers and it's not even necessarily conservatives who are who are the ones out there saying that right now what we see is threat of a recession in and it's not surprising and so it's only now that the fed is cutting rates so it's he's not alone in saying by any means and my worry. I'm i am not my worry. What what i always get bugged about in the trump administration said anytime he says something it immediately becomes a bad horrible idea to ninety percent of our commentariat area and it's happening again with with his comments on interest rates yeah i would agree with tim about that part that whenever trump says something everybody immediately jumps on it but but what i would say he's also been bullying the fed. There's no question about it so this is also a problem of trump's making so that now whatever the fed does it's perceived as doing being something in relation to trump which leaves the fed and particularly terrible position because whatever they do will be seen as somehow reactive and therefore trump bullied them into it could actually ty feds hands a little bit make it harder for them to ease because it'll look like they did it because the president told them to <hes> tim and what have you been watching this week the craziest story at the end of the week we had to do with donald trump telling benjamin netanyahu not to lead into <hes> u._s.

The the effort she she saying that in front of. Apparently her ten year old son. Stay classy, and what I really was taken back by was the audience reaction there. I mean, they loved what she said. Right. They loved it. They absolutely loved it. And she's not backing down today either. She's doubling down. In fact, your office. Put out a statement. I shared a little bit earlier in the program. But let me bring that one up again and says statement from the office of congresswoman Rashida Toledo. It says the office of the congresswoman released the following statement regarding comments about the need to impeach president. Donald trump. The following statement can be attributed to Denzel McKay. Campbell communications director for the office congresswoman to leave was elected to shake up Washington. Gee, so was Donald Trump. Right. Not continue the status quo. Donald Trump is completely unfit to serve as president. Why? Because you say so the congresswoman absolutely believes he needs to be impeached. Again. Why on what grounds you have to have Alec grants to impeach a president? Why what what what's it gonna be? She ran in one by making this very clear to the voters in her district. Donald Trump's actions have harmed the thirteenth congressional district and this country again how and congresswoman to leave will not stay silent. While this happens in an op Ed published Thursday morning, she laid out why she believes Donald Trump should be impeached. And she also went on to say, I will always speak truth to power hashtag unapologetically me is what she tweeted. And then there's this this other new member of congress that was sworn in by vice President Mike Pence her name is Kirsten cinema, by the way is if you need to know, she's the first openly bisexual woman to be sworn in. Congress. I didn't know that we needed that category. Had it, but apparently doing this important because Huffington Post devoted an entire article to it. So we put the picture up on the Schnitt show website, you need to check it out. I want you to take a look at the dress. And tell me what you think about the dress. We had a little conversation this morning on my local program about whether or not it was immodest. It was inappropriate. The interesting thing is the dress this in the picture, she could not wear that to the Tulsa county courthouse because it's sleeveless they wouldn't the deputies wouldn't let her in send her either home to change or they told her put a sweater or coat on. And I know that because a coworker showed up at a custody hearing wearing a very similar outfit. She's more detergent several occasions. But this this Kirsten cinema. Also was what she did a couple of things. First of all she was not sworn in on a bible like most members of congress are or even on a Karan like Keith. Allison was and some others have been some some practicing Muslims. She brought a law book. I don't know what law book, it was or is or or country it's from but she was sworn in on that. And she also got a little dig in on Mike Pence who to my way of thinking is just too nice. She made a made a little dig about he needed his spouse there. Okay. And this, of course, is the the thing with pants which given the cabin stuff, and the judge ROY Moore stuff doesn't sound is crazy anymore will not meet privately with with women unless his wife is there. So what she's telling pants is that she's so hot his wife needs to be there. But she's sworn in on wall law book, and again, this is this whole it's a whole new group. There's.

The first Palestinian woman sworn into congress Rashida Toledo it by the way. She's she's doubling down. She's doubling down. She's not backing off. In fact, I think I just put a tweet out if I didn't I will re tweeted here we go. She defends her profanity. Let's see what she got here. She defends her profanity laced comments about impeaching the president the new congresswoman from Michigan is under scrutiny after using profanity laced language to call for Donald Trump's impeachment during a Thursday event with supporters. I will always speak truth to power. Unapologetically me. She tweeted. So she's she's not backing down by any stretch of the imagination. And it's interesting to see the the reaction or lack of reaction especially in democratic circles. Nancy Pelosi was Nancy Nancy doesn't seem all that concerned about this. So this is this is her official response statement to the use of profanity well, referring to the President Donald Trump has an MFA classy, classy, right? She says this is not just about Donald Trump. This is about all of us in the face of this constitutional crisis. What constitutional crisis we must rise. So here's the statement from her office, the office of congresswoman Rasheeda released the following statement regarding comments about the need to impeach president. Donald trump. The following statement can be attributed to Denzel mckendall Mickey Campbell. Sorry communications director for the office. Congresswoman to leave was elected to shake up Washington. Same thing.

"This minutes ago. President Trump claimed that house speaker Nancy Pelosi told him that impeachment is off the table. I said why don't you use this for impeachment? And and she said, we're not looking to impeach you. I said that's good Nancy. That's good. But below is deputy chief of staff through Hamill responded to the president writing, quote speaker Pelosi made clear the today's meeting was about reopening government's not impeachment, unquote. This is all coming after a viral video from a newly sworn in member of congress. Brought the issue of impeachment front and center. Go on their winning congresswoman Rashida Toledo democrat from Michigan. Celebrating her swearing in last night. And now is CNN's Jeff Zeleny reports beyond the eople profanity is the issue of the impeachment that the democratic base wants and how democratic leaders will proceed. Some Democrats have been calling for President Trump's impeachment for months, I said he should be impeached. And they said don't use that word. But now they are part of the house majority making that word carry far more weight and political peril at a celebration. After being sworn in as a new congressman for Michigan where she to leave renewed her cry for impeachment with the F word when your son looks at you and says momma, look, you one Bowie's don't let maybe they talked because we're going to go on there. While out from that crass, expletive echoing around Washington today from the White House thoughts. Her comments were disgraceful to the capital, highlighting generational and ideological divide over the wisdom of impeachment. I'm absolutely convinced. That impeachment is not dead. But House Judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler is trying to put the brakes on all this impeachment. I don't really like that kind of language, but more to the point I disagree with what she said. It is too early to talk about that intelligently. It's one of the first and perhaps most consequential tests for Democrats in the new era of divided government. Speaker Nancy Pelosi has repeatedly called impeachment premature yet. She's not ruling it out..

"They may well be a threat to the country, and we are going to use our our thority to do what we're supposed to be doing alleged common Cummings has been a little more hesitant saying that, you know, he's not going to be handing out subpoenas like party favors. But these committee chairmanships do matter the Trump administration and Trump world at large is a particularly target rich environment when it comes to and and against subpoenas or launching investment destination. So the democrat party is not going to be particularly in want or or deprive vast well for for those sorts of things and talking to people within the White House over the past several weeks and months. Many of them have told me that they expect to spend much more time in the coming year testifying on Capitol Hill. L or producing. Or going over episodes where they have to produce documents for investigators on the hill. So yeah, this is certainly ramping up Laura. Well, I will just say, you know, one another aspect that will probably dominate the news is this push for impeachment by certain new members. Even some members have been there for a while already. Al green of Texas and Brad Sherman of California tried to are trying to bring forward a Bill articles of impeachment. But again, going back to Representative Cummings who is the oversight. Chairman. He yesterday also told me that that that is still premature that Democrats need to wait for the Miller report and on top of that if they were to try to pursue impeachment right now. It would it would not be a bipartisan effort, and you want it to be a bipartisan efforts that way. It doesn't look like political grandstanding by Democrats. The Cummings also brought up the Bill Clinton impeachment saga and how. Ow. That hurt Republicans. And that it could also hurt Democrats if they've tried to pursue this could hurt them in twenty twenty if they tried to pursue well at a certain point just because of the way that impeachment is set up like the house can just move articles of impeachment. They can Democrats do that on their own the Senate you need to third. So it kind of makes sense just logistically to get that in line. Although I do hear you in terms of some members being very kind of bullish on impeachment. Rashida Toledo who is the first member of congress of Palestinian descent was sworn into office this week that she at an event said, you know. B- were recounted a story of her talking to her child about becoming a new member of congress. And she said we're going to go in there and impeach the blank and referred to the president using a very strong Samuel L Jackson esque s expletive Franko. It's it's very interesting because the my sources close to the White House are, you know, love that kind of talk and everybody knew what I meant when I said Samuel Jackson. Go ahead. They love that kind of talk. They love because they really feel that Democrats risk overreaches. You know, kind of that, you know, quote, unquote word that Democrats that are afraid of and Republicans many of whom are kind of excited maybe excited as maybe a little bit of an exaggeration. But certainly they see opportunities here. My sources certainly tell me that if the Democrats try to impeach that would only help President Trump in gaining support from his base and also likely from mainstream Americans soi swift. Well. Other interesting factor about this incoming democrat class up tickly, the younger attention, grabbing new members is that the energy in what they are doing and what they're espousing isn't strictly to hell with Donald Trump. They were very much taking. Making a target of how the democrat party has decided to organize itself over the past many years and several decades whether you see it in their policy prescriptions for things like the green new deal and other elements climate change Medicare for all how to take on or potentially abolish ice. The these are maximalist demands where the point is not to say, Donald Trump is the problem, but many ways the Democratic Party in its current as they may label it Neo mold is as much of a problem, or at least a symptom of the same problem before we move on from this Lawrence..

Sales reps and bigger better case better argument, minority two years the beginning over the house for four years. Oh, six to twenty ten we fought back. We have to do it again. I guess. Yeah. That's who said, and what people are also forgetting is that you increase the advantage in the Senate and. Yeah. Better shape. Obviously, President Trump is in the White House. Republicans control the Senate, and we show up to the house. We have to make our case to the American people and get out there and fight for jobs. Can't worry about egos. Democrats get bigger rooms they control all that stuff comes to house for. That's just makes more. Over sound. That's all I'll tell you. What I don't think. It was it was it was a highbrow big day for Democrats. I know there were happy to be in the majority. Put the way they're already talking about impeachment congressman sherman's gonna offer articles of impeachment day one being the majority in the house full watt. Yeah. That was trying to claim destruction of Justice is such a so wrong. Marley raunchy trying to undercut the personal you have it on basis for it. But also constitutionally legally, there's at this stage no basis for impeachment whatsoever. And it's an abusive across and I'm on the committee. I've sat through your private readings with almost all of the queue with this top to bottom one evidence yet of collusion, and to somehow choose the president obstructing Justice because speaks out or because you Mitch changes that goes against constitution. Brad, Sherman should know better. And he wanted to be the first one in and so we'll be out there. But again, I think that's the type of thing. The country, but the other hand, politically, I believe it helps Republicans. I I don't think people voted for Democrats supported Democrats over us. They wanted to change they wanted to somehow break jam, but when they see that. So remind people what's to Democrats. That's extremely so. And willing to do whatever they can to bring down the president. And that's not what the American people want. I would I would think they'd number one. I know a lot of Republicans were not happy with President Obama or President Clinton. We know also they do on the people that did not support the impeachment of President Clinton, right? Yeah. I did approve all he did was wrong. But you me a presidential election. It's almost sacred. I mean, that's the whole country comes together they vote with your life results or not that is the result of a four year process to undermine that unless it's the most serious constitutes, delicious reasons wrong. And I thought that what he did was wrong. But not by ten on the use of his powers president. I was a dangerous precedent descent. Let's even more.

"And one of the first mostly women elected to congress. Michigan's when she. It's alot more than also noting that in Michigan Rashida Toledo won her race as well. In New Mexico last night, democrat, Deb Jalan became the first or one of the first I should say native American women elected to congress today, we all came together. And we said we still believe in the American dream in American democracy. And in hope, we still believe America stronger, when we work together, we believe diversity and representation make us great. That's New Mexico's Deb how in last night. The other native American woman to win last night was Democrats cherise David's in kansas's third district. So we're brecca tracer. I mean reflect with me on how significant this is you you were talking about that a second ago. But I think we should explore more. How for a longtime Democrats have relied even curried favor with women of color in terms of voters, but didn't necessarily make room for them in the party. In terms of actual politicians or representatives. Are you? Are you seeing that changing now? Well, it should be changing. I think it was the women in the candidates themselves who insisted that it was changing this time. I don't know that the Democratic Party infrastructure that the Democratic Party establishment was particularly keen on a lot of these candidates when they started running a lot of these women weren't taken seriously. You look at somebody like Lauren Underwood in Illinois. She ran in her primary against six white men. She's an African American nurse. I believe she's thirty to a lot of these women are also young we should talk about that. That means that they are the potential future of this party. But Laura and Underwood was certainly an underdog in her Illinois house primary race, and she wound up winning against six white men. And then last night, she won Jerez. In Illinois for a house district, Lucy MC bath. Now her her race in Georgia's sixth district is as as my knowledge at this moment still undecided, but she's in the lead by a few hundred votes. She was not somebody that the party took particularly seriously. She won her primary, and then was in was in a runoff and won her primary. So I don't know that this is indicative right now of the party having newly invested in them. I think it's indicative of the women insisting that they were going to lead the party forward in the aftermath of that two thousand sixteen election, and I hope that the party infrastructure is paying attention and looking to these women for leadership because I believe that they are the future of the party that they must be the future of the party. All right. Well, you mentioned Lauren Underwood. We have some tape from her last night. She unseated four term Republican congressman Randy Holt grin, making her the first woman of color to represent the district her district now just outside of Chicago tonight, November six twenty eighteen I. Stand before you as this communities first congresswoman elect. If that's not standing on the shoulders of giants. I don't know what is together on this night. We made history. History Underwood I should know is a registered nurse and was previously. A senior adviser in the department of health and human services under the Obama administration.

Set to become the first Muslim woman to serve in the US, congress after winning a democratic primary in Michigan. Rashida Toledo will be unopposed which makes her certain of election on November the sixth I've been speaking to her it, took about seven different people to convince me. To, run for office I went to law school because I wanted to change the world and still do I think, it's just taking me into this Direction of, public service and I'm very grateful because I find that. You know my lens has been missing in. That sector of government whereas a mom as somebody, that gone through various challenges, beamy elders a fourteen child of immigrants to be able to serve families in a very. Authentic way. Through public service and has being a. Muslim, in America at the. Moment been one of those challenges not. As much as people might think I live in a community in the United States where majority of my neighbors are African American and there's such a level of acceptance, and more importance on what I've done than versus my. Ethnicity or my faith I. It really is just a reminder that our country is so much more. Much better than people might perceive it as in these last few years of what. I call darkness in some some ways but I just wanted to the effect that. What you call this period of doctors I seem you're talking about about President, Trump because you have? Said that you decided to run because of injustices and, because of your children starting to question whether they belong. In America when I ran for state Representative in the, Michigan house, in two thousand and eight it was about Justice I mean I live in a community that is overwhelmed with pollution so fast forward President Trump is elected another. Year passes and congressman Conyers, retires that opportunity opened up a me. Not standing on the sides and fighting back on some of the heat rhetoric coming out of, the Trump administration and even some of the most un-american policies and decisions that I've seen over the years and yes. Iran, and I was motivated inspired by my children and my community and others that do feel like they don't have a voice do you think that the rhetoric that that you talk about the hate. Rhetoric As you call it exists elsewhere we've had a big row in the United Kingdom in the last few days with a. Former foreign, secretary, talked about the burka and the niqab called it ridiculous said women who dress in that way Muslim women who dressed in. That way looked like letterboxes and Bank robbers what did you think of that How, unbelievably awful and ridiculous that is you know people, are so ready to just dehumanize people based on how they look what they wear how they worship God or worship at all and to me that is what creates so much hardship so much divide. So much ugliness in our world is, when you have people say these ridiculous to me comments that actually lead sometimes to violence to me those are individuals that really show their true. Character in the fact that they probably shouldn't be leadership and shouldn't be in positions where they're supposed to be speaking for those that don't have a voice. I know, so many families and friends even, some Muslims that wear the hijab and, I can tell you every single. One of them have the same Emotions and passions for Justice but should we be able to debate those things shouldn't have that conversation that's. Not a debate to call somebody oh you look like Bank robbers how was that a debate, what does that have to? Do, with anything that's a clothing does anybody ever talk to, someone that, wears in a cop or whatever you wanna call it have you because I have there, is no conversation there other than name calling.
