"You get to be part of our private Facebook group where there's an ongoing discussion about events of the day. And and debates were having on the website, our editors and writers occasionally pop in and out of those discussions on the Facebook group group. Themselves and finally get invited to special exclusive events and calls. We had an anarchist meet up here with our members and staff in New York. We'll do one Washington DC and a month or two here. I know that sounds very coastal, but we have every intention of spreading these around the country in the coming year. So if you're in our plus member watcher in box for an invite to those events, and we also do calls, and we had a call yesterday, which is our biggest call ever with Devon Nunez talking about the Muller probe and other hot political issues in how so all sorts of wonderful benefits to and are plus, and you you just it's the next step to being part of the NRA community. So please you're not part of it already. Check it out and consider joining it. We hope you do. So Ryan Salaam, we've had four if I'm before counting correctly new entrance. Yes. The last week in the democratic field have Tulsi Gabbard we have Kirsten gillibrand. We have a guy whose name I can't quite pronounce Pete, boo dead dead dead. Put it at a belief. Yes. Suited him and camel Harris said you buy the conventional wisdom, that's Harris. Who's the most six significant in asleep dispatch? Yeah. Harris certainly seems to have garnered the most enthusiasm, and she is the one who's landed the most prominent Clinton staffers, which is a pretty good indication that she is in a strong position. Michael. Actually think that Camilla. Here's might avid glass draw. I think there might you know in a crowded field. The fact that you know, I think this new energetic left might be able to. Look at her and look at her criminal Justice record as a prosecutor and she's leaning into but she is leaning into and take her down. And I you know, I would be the one to say this, but don't count out like dark horse like Tulsi Gabbard like this is someone who breaks political orthodoxies pretty freely in her party. You know, she defended the judicial nominations of members of the knights of Columbus, which I appreciated, you know, saying that was improper and bigoted to go out in that way. She does however lean into the non interventionist foreign policy to the point of you know, almost praising Assad regime anything wrong with that. Michael. Komo listen, listen, I think she listens praised him, Michael is massively overestimating the criminal Justice reform vote and massively overestimating the power of the Samoan. Vote. I mean, this is a disowning owners. Hey, listen. There are people that like there are strange candidates that catch on fire in these primaries. People not expect Rick Santorum to go as far as he did in two thousand twelve against Mitt Romney. So you know, I would just say watch out people didn't expect Bernie Sanders to go as far as he did. I'm not a betting, man..

It has been a wild few weeks in the stock market if you own stocks, you probably haven't been too happy about it. And the president hasn't been too happy about it either. He's pretty sure he knows who's at fault Jerome Powell, the chairman of the Federal Reserve, the president thinks the feds open market committee, which meets eight times a year to set interest rates has been raising those rates too much and that's dragging down the stock market and threatening economic growth. Trump is even reportedly been ranting about his desire to get rid of Powell Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin had to release a statement from his beach -cation in Kabul, San Lucas to clarify that the president realizes he can't fire the fed chairman. But is the president right that the central Bank is raising interest rates too much. And if he is right. What should he be doing about it? We're joined now by Jason Furman who is the former chairman of President Obama's council of economic advisers and as a. Fesser at the Harvard. Kennedy School of government, welcome. Jason thanks for having me. So Jason in addition to serving President Obama, you were also an economic aid in Bill Clinton's White House. And it was the Clinton economic team who basically came up with this rule that a president shouldn't talk about monetary policy. Can you give us the rationale behind that? Because monetary policies important. You would think presidents would talk about it. Why is it so odd that President Trump is being so public about thinking that the fed is doing the wrong thing? There's three arguments one commenting on monetary policy. When you actually don't have the power to make it can be counterproductive and make you look weak or even make the fed on reacted against you. Second that you're not going to change policy, but you're just going to create noise and confusion. And finally, there's a belief that monetary policy is a technocratic act that often involves giving up. What is the very best in the very short run to make the economy better over the medium and long run. And that's why we have an independent body that does it because presidents would always want it to be great for the next six months. Even if that hurt us later on. So you say those are the arguments are are they right because one of the things that I think we here as a critique a lot of the fed is that the fed has been excessively concerned about inflation. And so it's had a bias toward raising rates too early in order to to fight a phantom inflation menace, and that, you know, so that Trump his comments, even though it's unusual for the president to to be making them there within a tradition that we did we hear a lot about that. The fed is systematically failing in its technocratic job. I don't think the fed is lawless. And I think they're absolutely should be a debate about it. When I worked for President Obama. I didn't comment on in public. I don't work for the administration, and I wrote nopd dead about two months ago suggesting that the fed should not raise rates in December. They didn't take my advice. So I think it's important subject for debate. I just think presidents in general this one in particular are uniquely incapable of contributing to that debate on there's kind of an odd thing here. And that the the president the the arguments that he's making now arguments we've traditionally heard from the left over the last number of years at the fed should be more focused on allowing wages to rise worry less about whether there's going to be inflation. Yes. It is one of those strange places where you know, his populism. Intersex with populism on the left. I do want to say that. I I agree with the idea that this president should not be coming on this. And the main thing that might take away from from this little. Blow up is that he thinks this is about personalities. It's another example of him kind of boiling every controversy down to like something that he can do to another person or persons, and that seems like an unwise way to approach Palestinian general, and maybe economic policies specifically on what happened to all the inflation hawks on the right through the Obama years. We heard all this screaming that there was going to be runaway inflation, the fed was printing all this money, and it was gonna turn us into Greece. Those voices have been very quiet now as the Republican president has been basically urging the actions that they that they were so horrified by at a time in the economic cycle where the argument is is weaker that we need low rates. I think there's still a decent argument that that you can have lower rates than we have now. But certainly it it it's weird that you don't see Republican voices saying that we need higher rates the inflation hawks on the right lost the argument the inflation doves on the right and an early indication of that was when Larry cudlow before the Trump presidency came alongside the gosh, I'm persuaded by market monitor kind of dovish. Monetary philosophy and Larry cudlow is a pretty big thought leader among some folks on the supply side, right? The former Republican candidate for governor of California Neel Kashkari became president of the Minneapolis fed. And he's been very consistent voice for dovish nece saying that look guys, let's stop looking at the unemployment rate and labor force participation. Let's just look at wages. He's been saying. Hey, wait, a second guys convincing a lot of people on the right and the left. Look what we want to see is is wage growth going to reach some unsustainably high level into there are a lot of folks were saying that when you look at the inflation target work treating it in a kind of asymmetric sort of way, you know, we've been falling below it for a very long time. You know, maybe we should think about actually breaching that two percent level. When you say the inflation target is two percent. But the critique has been at the fed is treated that more as a two percent inflation ceiling rather than inflation target. They say when when they missed they always seem to miss to the downside. Jason how is the economy right now? It feels like there's this weird disconnect the economic data mostly looks pretty good. There are some exceptions. To that. We had this great jobs report on Friday, but there's a lot of nervousness in in the financial markets that seems to indicate concerns that that there's going to be trouble down the road. Or maybe there's trouble now that's just not showing up in the data. Yeah. There's this disconnect as you said the real economic data is quite good. Financial markets are quite worried. I'm three quarters of the way with the real data with the very important caveat that the real data tell you about the president and financial markets are trying to predict the future. They can make a lot of mistakes in their prediction. But sometimes they're onto something and one of the things that on onto is that the nearly three percent gross that we've had this past year, not taste of growth. We can sustain even if we don't have a recession coming off of the fiscal stimulus getting to full employment. We're not gonna be able to grow at three percents going to be more like one and a half to two. And so, you know, some slowing is inevitable in any scenario. None the markets seem to have realized that. And Kevin Hassett who is your successor. As chairman of the council of economic advisers said this week regarding Apple's announcement that it was going to miss on profits that we should expect more companies that do business in China to to also make announcements like that because of negative effects of the trade war, which would seem to me like a remarkable admission from one of the president's own economic advisers is the policy being made directly by the administration important in terms of these economic performance numbers that we're going to see over the next couple of years or is it mostly good luck or bad luck for the president. If these numbers are bad. The actual economic data is eighty five percent luck fifteen percent policy. The stock market has a higher weight on policy because policy can affect the earnings of multi-nationals through a lot of channels. Like, we're seeing with the China trade war in a way that don't necessarily affect the real economy and jobs, and certainly one of the things that I think it's way more of the stock market than it is on the real economy is the trade war because it affects those apple earnings and all the other companies that will hear from. Ryan had something. Well, there's this morality play about whether or not we ought to be messing with trade wars, and what have you? But there's another question as well. There has been this consensus among the policy community that President Trump's stimulus was mistimed. Now, I think you can talk about whether or not that stimulus was terribly well designed in terms of its composition in terms of its effectiveness, relative to what we could have seen with some other composition. But there's another possibility in this recent data suggests what if this tip stimulus was actually pretty well timed given the slowdown in global growth outside of the United States. Could it be that we actually might need further stimulus in order to avoid some kind of global slowdown. And I think that's worth considering whatever the merits of fiscal stimulus for the year two thousand eighteen or twenty nine. To pass a permanent increase in the deficit to expand demand on the short run is particularly looney way to conduct economic policy. I feel like there's a little bit of a weird challenge for Democrats in discussing some of these phenomena because for example, as as we see these strong wage numbers, come in Jay Powell, the fed chairman said on Friday that he didn't view that as inflationary which would seem to mean that the higher wages are coming out of corporate profits rather than going through as higher consumer prices that seems like excellent news for workers, but it could be negative news for for corporate profits and the stock market, and then more broadly when we talk about this China stuff were very often talking about the interests of US based multinationals and the people who own those multinationals, and it's very tempting for Democrats to point to that. And see. See the president did something and he did something that was bad for apple prophets. And you can see this bad for the economy. And now sometimes what's what's bad for apple is bad for the whole US. But the stock market is not the economy, and I feel like there's a challenge for Democrats and figuring out what's you know, when to point to the stock market as as a sign that the president is doing something wrong for everyone versus went to just say that's just the stock market. And this doesn't necessarily mean it's a problem for the whole economy. I think one thing that Democrats should say more is that the stock market like not many Americans are actually involved in it personally. I think the last cystic I read was ten percent of Americans own eighty three percent of stocks. So to look at the stock market is a barometer of some things mainly corporate. You know, how the corporate world is doing. But it doesn't have a lot to do with how individual Americans are doing or how their investments are doing. Most Americans don't have investments. Most Americans are have savings. Most Americans don't have.

"Loans and incredibly salient issue. Everyday americans. You know, so even if wages kind of get back to where they were in say two thousand which would still require some effort. There's still a lot of issues that I think are going to need policy solutions that you can directly tie to both President Trump and congressional Republicans. Finally, I I didn't want to spend too much time on this. But I think we do need to touch on it on. I I want your thoughts on the likability conversation around Warren and the weird subtext to a lot of it. I think is that people are worried that like she reminds people of Hillary Clinton, and she will face the same attacks that Hillary Clinton faced and it's kind of funny given how wildly differently her positioning is in terms of her relationship to corporate America. But I think, you know, the both, you know, some of these concerns I think our our sexist nature, but also people are concerned about you know, what if you know, what if the electorate does have a problem with this kind of woman. This kind of woman. I wish we could have time just dive into what that means like accomplish educated thoughtful pushy, perhaps I think that people's difficulties with Clinton wins. So far back. It is really hard to untangle the sexism from the history just in from her policy positions in from just her personality. The thing I thought you were going to mention is far as ability goes is that for whatever faults weren't has. We can spend a whole other episode on that I believe she presents herself pretty authentically the Instagram video with her drinking a beer was really weird and awkward and hope she doesn't do that again. But for the most part, I think what people. Are looking for when they say like ability is authenticity. And that was something that a lot of people felt that Clinton was missing. Right. And I think again, whatever you think of Warren, she seems to be herself. I'm, you know, her probably not totally impromptu press conference the weekend after she announced she came out, you know, in a parka in jeans and tennis shoes hard to imagine Hillary Clinton doing something like that. And I think people will probably appreciate her relative off into and that will maybe matter a little bit more hopefully than this conversation about likability. Which to me is very difficult to untangle from just pure sexism. I want to thank Mike konczal, fellow with the Roosevelt institute for joining us. Thanks for having me still with me are on the left honorary Cox with friends like these on the right Ryan, salon of national review. Now, it's time for tweet to the week. Sometimes it only takes one hundred forty characters or maybe two hundred and eighty two still the spirit of the week. Ryan Salaam, what tweets struck? I always am delighted by Joe Weisenthal tweeting Joe is an editor at Bloomberg. And he was making an observation about some of the conversation. The roiling conversation around the new jobs numbers the purpose of going back and looking at wrong predictions of full employment isn't to mock people for being wrong, but to promote intellectual humility. And maybe if we're lucky to get people to stress test, their basic premises, very earnest very necessary on Marie Cox. What's your Twitter the week? My tweet is a thread from Pirker Higgins who brings them history to that video of AFC dancing. It turns out that that video is an artifact from what people used to call remix culture back in the, you know, dark days of two thousand and nine and there's a whole really interesting copyright history to it. So people should look at that. That's at X are my Twitter week is actually not from this week..

"I'm Josh barrow of New York magazine on the right is Ryan Salaam, executive editor of national review on the left is Marie Cox, host of the crooked media podcast with friends like these columnists for scifis fan girls and John Bresnahan capital bureau chief for politico is also with us with the democratic wave Nancy Pelosi has become the first person to return to the speakership after losing the majority since Sam Rayburn in one thousand nine hundred eighty five and Rayburn has a building named after him in the capital complex on. What do you make of the reruns of Nancy Pelosi? She's had a lot of detractors. There were a lot of people within the party who were trying to depose her as speaker. And yet she wins with almost unanimous support mentally within the democratic conference. I am to the left of Pelosi probably on many political issues. But I have to say that I admire her so much for this re entry into the spotlight the way that she's handled herself the way that she's wheeled and dealed. I think she's a consummate politician. It's so interesting to see her face off. With Trump because sh- her her quickness and her ability to make deals is like so in sharp contrast with the guy who supposedly is the master dealmaker, right and choosers got some great turn of phrases lately. I also think that she probably is dealing with the new progressive caucus more adroitly than anyone else in that fairly geriatric leadership would. And I look forward to that that caucus rising up after she makes her way into the sunset. Drunk. Can you describe for us the the agreements that Pelosi reached with various flanks of her caucus there were major concessions she ended up making both to the progressive caucus. And then also the people on the more moderate flank of the democratic conference in order to consolidate all the support, you know, she'd definitely make concessions. I'm not sure how major some of them were. I mean, she made the biggest one was of course, our term limits concession that. She could serve at a maximum four years speaker, but she's already seventy eight years old. So I'm not sure how big a concession that. What? I mean. I think the the thing was plsy would have said anything to get back in the speaker share with aggressives she committed to having more representation from the progressive caucus on they major committees. And making sure that the voice progresses was hurt in the committees. And again, I think that by virtue of who got elected that would have happened anyway. And it's really interesting to hear to me that that people are to win and we were talking about being to the left of Pelosi. And there's a lot of there's a lot of new member. Who are going to be the left a Pelosi on issues, which is fascinating. Because I mean, the Republicans of tank bluesy for years decades now is being in San Francisco, Nancy, you know, in her, you know, you don't want the rest of the country to have. And now Pelosi is not a hard line of, you know, progressive as compared to some of her members. So it's funny to see the pollution in the party. And she made some of these member she bought off very easily. She she said, you know, she subcommittee assignment, or she'll, you know, they'll get a chance to push whatever legislation they want. I mean, so I mean, I think if you watched it it was a masterful kind of display of how you manipulate other members. And in my twenty five years covering the hill every day Nancy Pelosi is by far the best vote counter. I've ever seen. Right hundred. Plus is still useful. As a boogie woman for Republicans. I doubt it. I'm skeptical about that. Because basically, these are the salad days for Democrats. This is the perfect time. They will not be held accountable for anything. They could have the little debates here there that can be cute that can generate you know, fundraising dollars for this or that progressive group. But really what they have to do is just play prevent defense. They just have to ensure that the president can accomplish anything legislative Lii. And if they do that, they'll do just fine. And also a lot of attention is going to be drawn by the democratic contenders and twenty twenty because of course, the democratic primary season is already begun..

"But the merit isn't that I agree with him or that we should agree with them. It's that we need to recognize them as claims that even non horrible stupid racist. People might agree with claims that could very well affect American policies. I think all of his racially charged fearmongering over the caravan falls into that category. It doesn't mean just because Trump says it it doesn't mean that there is a version of something to really worry about MC. Stop in all the Michigan associated with the caravan. Not that if you ask a Trump surrogate or another guest on Fox News, you'll get a better argument than the one Trump puts forth. Here was Tom Hohmann. Former acting director of ice. Yes. Cliche. All directors want to act so Tom home in the acting former director, no wait, the former acting director. I don't know he's on the shortlist to be on the on deck circle. Anyway, Tom Hohmann had this analysis of teargassing sanctuary seekers at the border said this on the Laura Ingraham show on FOX within the country enter country, legally, I I first crimes misdemeanor, however, allow these people based on our intelligence have been deported before she'll when they enter the country, that's a felony. But one thing I want to say they'll put in the natures, and you guys need to get this out for those naysayers put on a uniform extravaganza hip, get rockstar on at you. And tell me there wasn't a battery sponsors nonlethal long force response. I was proper concerned they're being assaulted and where. Were they when the Obama administration was using tear-gas? Oh, yeah. Back in twenty thirteen you have to disperse a crowd. How do you disperse a crowd? But well, that's interesting. Do you disperse a crowd? Let me think about this just on a personal level. Have I ever been in a crowd? Yes. Have you ever been in a crowded, but you have are you in that crowd? Now, you might be. But chances are you're not in that crowd. So think back how'd you get out of that crowd was it via tear gas? I mean, probably some of the time. Yeah. Lots of times, even but not all the time for me some ways to get out of the crowd include the subway door opening and I just leave the q train or the jets falling behind by twenty in the fourth quarter. And I leave early all those methods work. I'm just saying there might be some methods of crowd dispersal other than tear gas. Of course, I've never strapped on weapons, and I haven't done any of the strapping haven't put on uniforms to make a decision on crowd. Dispersal gotta say perhaps doing so would influence the decision. Just in terms of what these psychiatrists called priming or suggestion. I might be inclined to take. The militaristic decision upon the strapping and the uniform wearing but you see what I've done here. I've taken this stupid poorly reason dumb ass argument, and I've criticized it, and I've had great fun doing. So. But I think I may have used that as a shortcut for a harder argument that could be in there if they use smarter people to argue there are thousands of people in this caravan is what Ryan Salaam, a good arguer calls a social innovation. So they found a way to make cheaper and safer for people in Central America to try to cross into America legally, legally, I can say the caravan was of course, overblown by FOX and Trump, but I do believe that most Americans have a level of concern about this have a right to have some level of concern for people crossing the border illegally. Now, I can fix it. We can all fixate on Trump's use of ver- mind, imagery, Trump's misstatement of facts, Tom home. Been saying NATO to the naysayers and I could bat away every dumb sound bite that FOX offers us, but there is a real policy concern underneath at all. And I'm a bit concerned that we delude ourselves. If we don't take the issue seriously because it's so hard to take Trump seriously. Yes, he's a shady lying Griffin. And sure those who associate themselves with his policy agenda seem to have that stink on them too. But maybe the smartest con they ever pulled was to convince us the con was dumb..

"Okay. Here's the national reviews. Executive editor and author of melting pot or civil war. Son of immigrants makes the case against open borders. Ryan Salaam is back with us, hey. Again. He's a rest of religion in African American studies at Princeton University is latest book is democracy in black, how race still, and slaves, the American soul, Eddie cloud junior We're. to senior. It's about time in shut up here. She's a writer at large for New York magazine and author of good and mad. The revolutionary power of women's anger, a returning champion, Rebecca, tracer. Thank you. Tonight's overtime, finish him after the show on YouTube and also one more time. I'm going to mention next week in this time. Slot is our anniversary show. I consider it a tribute to the people who have worked on this show. It's twenty five years. We're going back to the beginning of. Politically incorrect 993 and some of the people who have worked on this show have worked on it for twenty five years or twenty four or twenty three. So uh, show people have trouble saying, I love you accept on camera, but I love you all that. And I want to start with political correctness because. A friend of mine recently said to me, why are we losing? I guess we're not losing officially yet, but considering how awful Trump is and everything else, it seems like the Democrats should be doing better and you know, twenty five years ago politically incorrect. I said, like the godfather, political correctness. I believed it would destroy us then, and I believe that now and I think people vote not so much on policy anymore. I don't think they follow it closely. I think they vote on who strong, they know Trump's in idiot, but he looks strong and political correctness week. Eighty percent in this new Atlantic story that published this poll eighty percent of Americans see political correctness as a problem. And I think it's our problem and I don't know why more mainstream liberals don't denounce the political correctness that they must know in private conversations is insane. And I'm going to give you some examples, but I'll ask you to. Jump in. I. Well, look, I think there is going to be a Blue Wave. I think the cavenaugh bump has impacted the recent polls. We probably overstated the possibility of turning the Senate and so, but then that's not really a wave. Oh no, I think we're going to see a serious shift in the house. I think I, I hope that we do, but I also want to go back to what you said about political correctness, making the left look weak and that that's a bad thing. What have we been hearing from the right in its moment of a minority elected party in this country was just able to push through a supreme court nominee they want. And what have they been clinging to a narrative about how they were attacked poor, Brett, Kavanagh's family. I feel so badly for what happened to him. Says Donald Trump, the mob is coming for us. The angry mob is out there for us. We've been attacked, they're playing all those notes that you hear as week when they come from the left. The right is trying to get. What I'm talking about. I'm talking about, I'm sorry, go ahead with Bill. I actually think Rebecca has a really good point. Everyone in America feels like they're losing right now. Democrats feel like they're losing Republicans feel like they're losing Democrats feel like they're locked out of power. Republicans feel like they've lost the culture and it really is true..

"How do you explain the fact that his language is constantly the language of tumbled and the Gatien, but actually his agenda and this is not always in every regard, but his agendas, oftentimes this pretty banal agenda. What exactly is happening. One way to think about it is that he's trying to solve the populace dilemma. The populace dilemma is that you come in as a candidate of negation. I'm here to destroy the establishment and everything else. Then suddenly you create all of this time, Moulton controversy and chaos, and then you exist a fairly conventional banal agenda only dramatized it only you've put it in a very. Different frame. You've done this as a warrior on behalf of American interests. Now, I, there's a danger that Donald Trump is turning all of us into Scott Adams, and I certainly don't want it, but it is really interesting. Yeah. Oh, all these done is just bring back t. tip. Okay. Would Donald Trump had the legitimacy to bring back t. tip where given where public opinion is had he not done it in this vein of, I'm gonna defend you interests. Here's another thing to happen six days before the meeting with young Claude younger, the European Union, the European Commission, excuse me, decided that we're going to allow GMO soybean varieties to be imported into the European market. This for years and years has been an enormously contentious issue. One of the reasons that t. tip negotiations were sidelined. One of the reasons that they didn't actually wind up getting anywhere is because of resistance to addressing this GMO protectionism. And then lo and behold, as young Claude Yonkers preparing to meet with Donald Trump at a meeting where he said, I'm going to buy. Soybeans. Exactly the product where China said, we're going to issue retaliatory tariffs. Suddenly, suddenly the huge huge issue that massively Royal the European public that goes away. So it actually really. Okay. Here's another thing you'll know saying that this was a great concession, a huge concession that Donald Trump is not imposing auto tariffs that he talked about imposing. So something that he threatened to do that he's now not doing a big concession and yogurt by saying, that's a big concession. What does that do a ha- it greases the wheels for yogurt to make further concessions. So again, the things that t. tip was the Europeans were going to only give the United States through gritted teeth. Now they're conceding some of these things preemptively. That's pretty interesting. And again, I don't think the Donald Trump's approached or European allies is good. Not quite the opposite. I feel very strongly about that, but this is actually kind of surprising. At it means that Trump is no longer fighting a trade war on all fronts. So I think this was this was at the very least pretty promising switch beings today, chlorinated chicken. Charlie, what? What do you make of Ryan? Salam's Scott out in defense, semi defense. All right. The tactics. The same as I did last time we talked about this which is to what Donald Trump says and what Ryan Salaam, say, not the same thing as what Ryan does is present a cogent, awful. Well, educated position that is never going to successful puppy politician. Right. Well, I just, you know, we're talking about Donald Trump pay when talking about Ryan Salaam, and so. The mistake. I think we would make is to conflict these two things now, unless the argument and I think this is sort of party what Ryan said and I'm happy to be corrected if I'm wrong, unless the argument is, will you come in like a whirlwind in every area and then somehow you get what you want, and it does shake out. Well, if that's the argument, maybe that's true. But I do think that when we talk about trade on the editors, we often Massa's Trump's ignorance and chaos into a coherent worldview when it is no such thing that's not to say there is not a coherent world view of the the Ryan just outlined. But it is to say that it's not Trump's well, it's a coherent theory of what Trump is doing. So what what do you make the idea? I can try to reduce it down right hand. That was quite. Problem. So conventional Republican wouldn't have had the legitimacy to say, oh, we're going into him, but Trump is going through this Tomo chaos and very rhetorically forceful defensive of economic nationalism is going to end up getting us there..

"There is a broad conception that they are corrupt it's one thing on top of another if you look at the republican congress being kicked out in two thousand six it wasn't just one thing it was a whole bunch of things including scandals in congress and the danger if trump is that although people know who he is you know every day more and more and more comes out about his sexual life his arrogance is lying is shady financial dealings and so forth and eventually people who are open to supporting him too so you know i've just had enough of this in our politics i don't want to hear about it anymore and the only way to achieve that is to kick him his party out but at the moment it does seem as if to use the phrase they will use polling this baked in that probably is no silver bullet for the democrats and they they would just do a lot better in my view to attack his policies so double barrelled exit question beginning with you ryan salaam michael cohen will bring down the trump presidency yes or no no charlie cook michael cohen bring down the trump presidency yes no michael no the answer is no the second barrel double barrel second question to you ryan salaam rudy giuliani will still be on the trump legal team at the end of summer yes or no no charlie no because he's embarrassing trump in this one thing trump conto we might get total unanimity here might know the answer is no.
