"24 7 News Center. Will there ever be a stimulus bill to help the US economy and Americans during the Corona virus pandemic today, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says there is a compromise being written, but it would be up to the president to see it's signed into law before Election Day. Pelosi telling MSNBC that it appears the White House is ready to embrace science in a substantial way, she says, and Colorado officials are hoping some snow this weekend will help them put out wildfires that have been moving across that state. Strong winds today will likely caused the fires to continue burning. Two of the largest wildfires in that state's history are both still active, causing evacuations and burning almost 400,000 acres. Both candidates made some weighty statements in last night's final presidential debate. This is former vice President Joe Biden, saying this about separated Children at the border. They cannot find over 500 of sets of those parents and those kids air alone. Nowhere to go nowhere to go. It's criminal, and the president didn't dispute that number. He did give this figure about Cove in 19 recovery 99.9. Of young people recover 99% of people recover, which has been disputed by the medical community. As of today, and back with us to bring all the claims back to Earth is Washington Post fact, checker, Salvador Rizzo, who joins us on the coma news line. Good afternoon. Great to be with you. Let's start with former vice President Joe Biden in general. How would you characterize the accuracy of what he said last night? Joe Biden is, you know, not the most precise politician. He mixes up his number, he embellishes. But there's no comparison for example, you know, Joe Biden said that during the Obama administration, you know they were talking about criminal justice reform and at one point in the debate, and so, he said during the Obama administration 38,000 people were released from federal prison. The number's actually 19,000. But what happened? He likely confused some numbers that were in his head. 36,000. People applied for pardons or commutations and Obama granted 1900. But actual releases from prison were 19,000. So he was far off. But you can see you know there are actual numbers and you know the suit there that all you know. Heather back to something, whereas Trump is likely to make something up or hugely exaggerate or fabricate something. So then what would you say The president's biggest misstep or false claim would have been last night. I continue to think, as I have for much of the year that the The most egregious false claim is a line that he has that he's protecting preexisting conditions. How on earth are you protecting them? If you're in the Supreme Court, you know, actively asking them to strike them down and you have no plan to replace him. So I sound like a broken record because I'm always writing about it when I hear him, say it, But it is a big deal and he is just, you know, I mean, at this point, I think it's safe to say he's just lying about one of the bigger claims that former vice president Biden made last night was that the president paid 50 times Maurin Chinese taxes than in US taxes and had the secret Chinese bank account. What if the facts show about the exchange? They had their I'm not. I'm not going to back for his 50 times. You know, the math doesn't quite add up. You know what we know from The New York Times is reporting. Is that Donald Trump paid something like $750 and federal taxes and income taxes. You know, for the last few years on DH, one of his companies According also to the Times paid something like $158,000 in Chinese taxes from 2013 to 2015 now at the debate when this came up Trump said that he believed that the account was closed. This Chinese bank account was closed, but that's not what his lawyers said to the New York kinds, he said the account was still open but dormant. The president said that the US is energy independent under his administration. Is he correct in that he is not correct. You know the irony here. You know the thing that Really catches a fact. Checkers goat is that you know there's a lot to brag about, you know, under Trump when it comes to energy, you know, a net energy exporter for the first time since 1953. But to Trump back just isn't enough. And so, he says, We're energy independent. That's just not true. We still import around nine million barrels of oil a day. And then he also said, You know these countries where we have to go to war to secure the oil Now that in itself is sort of a No misdirection. But 11% of the oil we import comes from Persian Gulf countries. That's his own administration putting up data, so it's flat out false. It was a long debate lots of claims from both sides and it's well worth the read online at washingtonpost dot com. The whole fact check from Salvador Rizzo, Salvador. Thanks very much. Thank you. Come on news time. 12 20 it's hell.

Of course, the Corona virus pandemic was the big topic on both sides. But there were other issues that we heard about as well.

You know contacts with Russia, right in the help that the campaign received from the Russian government during 2016. You know, that is sort of a rhetorical argument he he makes, But it was the Justice Department with Trump appointees that led this investigation. Now this was so unusual, and in the end how much of a difference can be separate exercises really make? I mean, if you're a trump supporter, you probably were watching him. If your abiding backer you were probably there, I think you know, the interesting thing to think about is the voters in the middle, though.

"Describes a conflict of interest. His own aides, including Steve Bannon describes Eddy and ridiculous. Robert Mueller was once a member of the Trump Golf Club in Virginia. He hadn't been using it for years and years because he was living and working in the district, apparently, and at one point, he tried to get a refund from the club. And you know he and the club manager. By all intents and purposes, it looks like a very cordial back and forth between them, and then I just gave up on the refund, and that's it. And some spins this into some business just appeared in the conflict of interest. He also plans about Robert Moore. That he had a separate conflict of interest because he was interviewed to be the FBI director. When Trump had just fired James come the reason for the Russia investigation to be callous for the Russian destination. But actually what you see in the Miller reporting what we put in the book and what we factory so many times because the president says it constantly. You know, Robert Mueller went to the White House to speak to Trump in some AIDS to give them an institutional perspective of the FBI director's job. If he wasn't fine for it, And apparently, it was clear enough to all of Trump's days, including Steve Bannon, just not to Trump. So there's that's you know, a very prominent example of from spreading this information about one of his political foes or in this case, antagonist. National policy. The speaker of the House gets on his radar very often on DH, You know, often when you're hearing Trump making some outrageous or, you know incredible claims that Nancy Pelosi There's not much there when you start scratching and so the example that we put in the book Was Trump. He, at one point made some comments. This was early in his presidency, and it wasn't clear whether he was talking about immigrants in general or the gang members from Emma's 13. Like the way that he had sort of proceeded through his remarks. There was an ambiguity there and most people reasonably. I think if you're looking at the remarks would conclude that he was talking about immigrants, and he called them animals, right And then later on, he returns to the theme of Emma's 13 How this gang is very violent. So if he calls some group of people animals the Nets stay while it's still ambiguous, Nancy Pelosi, you know, sort of reprimands him and says, like no human should be called an animal and everyone has a spark of divinity, and you should realize that On Ben, you know, Trump clarifies after that he was talking about Emma's 13. But for years and years, he's been trashing Nancy Pelosi for criticizing him. You know, for, you know, supposedly censoring him. I'm calling Emma searching animals. She never did. You know, she never did that She was still in. You know the mindset that he was talking about all immigrants as the rest of us were before he clarified it. Those are two examples. There's a lot more. We didn't include Scarborough, but you get a sense of that sort of stuff that we don't into chapter. I'm going to quickly speedway to Chapter four, which I also wrote, and that is, you know, we titled it both to his base. Often. What you'll find is that You know, you look at the people who go to trump rallies and they've been interviewed. Or, you know some events at the White House and you know they're cater to the religious right. And you have a lot of Trump supporters there. What you find is that a lot of them are not very perturbed about the president's record, you know, with Fossen misleading statements on, in fact, a lot of them. You know, when you asked him point blank about it, you know, they'll say things like Well, you know, I don't really take it seriously or, you know, I know he's living a bit. So it's hard to tell how many of the president's supporters are actually believing in the work he does and how many have a more jaundiced view. But maybe they still supported for other reasons that have nothing to do with whether you tells the truth or not, or whether You know, he eyes the staining them on some issue or not, so You know, we had a lot of economic and you know jobs plays into that chapter, but three of them that really stand out, not just rescue them quickly. I won't go far into detail. One of them is the claim that he quote unquote decimated Obama care or virtually eliminated. Obama care, right? What actually happened is he and Republicans in Congress reduced one part of obamacare, the individual penalty. That was basically attacks on people who declined to buy health insurance for that year. And so Trump managed to reduce it to zero right. But the rest of the law is still there. The exchanges were still there. Millions of people still have instructed to the exchanges the Medicare expansion. Still there. Bunch of states get billions of dollars from the federal government under Medicaid programs through that. You know the guarantee for you? No coverage for preexisting conditions is still there is a huge bank of Obamacare Hey, from administration is in court trying to get rid of it. But for now, you know it's all part of the law. Secondly, you know, just go briefly into you know, another kind of claiming that chapter and that of this claim that he repealed the Johnson Amendment rights of the Johnson amendment forbids by 20 fours or charity organizations, but see threes from taking political stance is a supporter opposition of 10. It's because they're not project. So they don't pay taxes. They don't get to participate in supporting or opposing candidates. That's the trade off importantly, the state of New York suit the Trump Foundation for a violation of the Johnson amendment. And now Trump is making the sport claim that he has repealed it when in fact, it's still the law gland is still on the books hasn't been revealed. Trump signed a very varies You know, I've seen a lot of executive orders in my day. You know, this was you know, a bunch of fluff. It really doesn't do anything on during the Johnson amendment may not be enforced very toughly by the I R s still there. And you know, Chapter five. I'll hand it back over Decline. Salvador Rizzo, part of the co authors of the book, Donald Trump, and his assault on truth. Yeah, actually, so, Meg, we were where we wanted. The room for questions were probably lived through the The last one's more quickly. Yeah, and similarly to the 1st 2 chapters. This was another case of spending a lot of time and time and Trump's head. It's a chapter all about Twitter, which is the president preferred communication platforms. One thing that really struck me was that you know. 1/3 of the Tulsa misleading tweets were all about impeachment or the rush investigation so very much focused on things that were hurtful to him..

"Exactly now, you're getting it. What American Girl would not enjoy marrying her brother? Okay. Very good. Even the Washington Post's. Liberal fact checker is tearing Hillary apart for claiming in a speech in Selma from this past weekend that voter suppression in Georgia, Alabama, and Wisconsin is why she lost Donald Trump. She claimed that in Wisconsin, quote between forty thousand and eighty thousand people were turned away from the polls, but because of the color of their skin because of their age because of whatever excuse could be made up to stop a fellow citizen from voting. Because that's what happened. Yeah. They had a dude walking the lines the the voter. The polling lines and say excuse me, ma'am, you got to get your black ass line and head on home. Well, why don't worry about it? Don't worry. There's another eighty thousand just like excuse me, sir. Get your black ass outta line and head on home. You won't need to be voting today. Well, why not not for you to ask? It's two thousand sixteen in America. And this stuff just happens openly, and nobody ever notices it just happens. Excuse me. Ma'am old black lady out of the line, go home. But I'm I'm here to vote for Hillary not anymore. You're not because you're black and what we do in America. In two thousand sixteen is we just grab black people and say head on home. You're not going to be allowed to vote today. It happens. It's widespread. It's rampant. Surely, you believe that right? Salvador Rizzo of the Washington Post of all places writes, quote, did this Wisconsin law prevent forty to eighty thousand voters in the same state from casting ballots in two thousand sixteen we asked Clinton Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill to weigh in. The forty thousand number comes from the more conservative estimate. The eighty thousand number is also a conservative estimate. Well, within the range of the two studies. Rick hasten and elections expert at the university of California Irvine counters saying her claim that since she was the first person who ran for president without the protection of the Voting Rights Act, it cost her forty thousand eighty thousand votes is quote ludicrous. They brought Lou in. This is ludicrous. It is. Ludicrous because Wisconsin was not a state even covered by the part of the Voting Rights Act, which the supreme court killed in the Shelby county case. So even if it had been in effect, it wouldn't have stopped implementation of Wisconsin's voter ID law as it had stopped Texas's voter ID law. He adds that the numbers of people who were turned away from the polls.

But consumer reports no longer recommends Dyson stick vacuums. I'm herb Weisbaum. With why the editors did this last week Democrats in congress unveiled their new green deal calling for an overhaul of the nation's energy sector, says congresswoman Alexandria, a Cossio Cortez. We're here to say that small incremental policy solutions are. Not enough and sense. The green new deal was revealed. The president has said it would eliminate all planes and cows, Salvador Rizzo is a fact checker for the Washington Post. He spoke with komo's Taylor van Cise. What are the key goals of the green new deal as it's currently written? It's a resolution that has been introduced in the house and the Senate it's one of those resolutions that even if it passes it wouldn't have the force of law. So it's just a statement of broad principles. That's an important thing to keep in mind. Legislation would come later key goals. They're pretty sweeping very ambitious. It's a job guarantee for everyone healthcare and higher education for everyone. And then the environmental goals, which are reaching one hundred percent of the power demand through clean renewable and zero emissions. Energy over ten years building out high speed rail and large quantities across the United States. You know, transitioning to what's called the smart power grid refurbishing every single building in the United States to meet heightened energy efficiency standards, and you know, using those standards for all new buildings get built. So it's just it's a it's a mix. It's a wishlist, it's a broad statement of priorities. We don't actually know what it would look like when you know, the details of policy making, you know, come up and Bill starts to be drafted. Now. The president says that it would permanently. Eliminate all planes cars cows oil gas and the military. You're the fact checker if any legislation was created from the green new deal proposal would any of those things happen. Certainly not the military cows airplanes cars, you know, some things are two grand and to society, you know, for lawmakers to be able to get rid of them, even if they wanted to I certainly it's not in the resolution itself right now. So no one is really talking about that there's been some compassion because you know, some supporting materials have been, you know, causing some confusion and have been misinterpreted. But the fact is you know, none of that is is in the offing. There's a good question. What you know? These goals would mean for the oil industry, right because the green new deal calls for, you know, the euro emission all clean renewable energy. And so by extension that does mean getting rid of, you know, sources like oil energy. But we'll see I mean again, it comes down to legislation and this is a net yet not everything in the green new deal as you've mentioned has to do with pollution and energy. Why was medical leave and retirement included in this wishlist? That's the new deal part of the green near deal. Right. I mean. Mix the old new deal and the green new deal precisely the Democrats say this is a two for a lot of things in there. But you know, you can describe it as a twofer in that there's all sorts of economic and social guarantees healthcare higher education and jobs being well, also retirement security, and some other things like medical leave, which you mentioned, and then there's all the environmental priorities that are in there as well.

Ten chip Franklin. Nikki medoro the day before after the Super Bowl the day before the state of the union and Trump was talking then and he'll be talking tomorrow question is how much of it will be true. It's it's interesting when you look at some of the whoppers, fifty eight thousand non-citizens voted in Texas with ninety five thousand non-citizens registered to vote. These numbers are just the tip of the remind you a little bit back in two thousand sixteen when he said three million people voted illegally in California. Joining us right now is Salvador Rizzo. He is the he's the fact checker at the Washington Post nice enough to join us here. So this is interesting to see. How far he wants to take this when he just comes out with these numbers were those numbers even close as first ones. I just said no never not close at all. You mentioned the fifty eight thousand nine citizens who purportedly voted in Texas. So this all began with the Texas secretary of state, David Williams, Republican he put out a list on Friday and the list on Friday. Said that there were these all these tens of thousands of voters who had signed up for a driver's license or an ID card with documents that showed that they were not USA's sins. But that they were legally in the country. And so the secretary of state put out this list, assuming that because fifty eight thousand these people voted in ninety five thousand of these people had registered to vote that therefore all of them were suspicious characters. You know? In Texas quickly discovered is that a lot of these people signed up for these licenses and then they became citizens, they became naturalized. And so therefore they were eligible tomorrow. So it's a huge in Texas. And the president tweeted this right when the list came out, and they the White House didn't respond to our questions about it. And we walk them through what had happened. So, you know, this seems like, you know, just a callous indifference to misinformation, and then pretty huge, you know, misinformation this case. Yeah. And the thing about it is is that there's really nobody other than in the Washington Post New York Times and a few other major newspaper standing up to him because Fox News isn't Sasol. How hard is it to catch Trump on the lies when he tells so many lies? It wasn't hard because chaos in Texas, and everyone who has a stake in it, you know, in the voting rights of you know, non-citizens or Ashaari of immigrants who become citizens. Anyone who has a stake in just, you know, the facts, and you know, what's going on with election law in huge state. You know, they're very they're they're all very alert. They're all on this issue. A number of lawsuits have been filed. So it's a big deal down there. But you know, obviously this talking point when it first came out was very convenient for the president who was making this case for the border wall. Right. You know, what better avenue to see you need, then, you know, tens of thousands of people voting illegally in Texas a border state. I saw the congressman Bill heard on television recently. And in his congressional district is like two thirds of what the wall would be. It's an amazingly huge district. And he's saying that, you know, even though there was like some four hundred thousand people came undocumented into the country last year that's down eighty percent since two thousand we're talking to salve Rizzo the Washington Post. He is their fact checker. But there was another thing that Trump said week ago, I found interesting he said that the of the federal inmates. Twenty three percent are undocumented or illegal and uses language is that true. Is that accurate? Well, it's closer to thirteen. Really? Okay. All right. Yeah. The Justice department. You know, we like to a report in this fact today. They count up all the federal prison inmate separate and distinct from the people who are in prison at the state or county level, right or tail at a county level. So you're only county a subset of all the prisoners. And the Justice department says thirteen percent of them did not have lawful immigration status in the United States has at the end of twenty seven the overwhelming majority of arrests in this country are for state crime. So it would make sense that when the federals arrest somebody, it's probably somebody that has something to do with immigration, and it is obviously a much smaller number than the others. But I mentioned congressman Bill heard who is from Texas and his district is a huge district down there. And he was really impressive. I didn't realize he was in the CIA ten years. And he's saying there's not a problem here. He's standing up to Trump, and he's a Republican well in the state of the union tomorrow night will Trump again, adopt. This this immigrants are coming to get us coming across the border and their rapists. Will you stop that theme? Again. It's really hard to. Predict just because Trump one hand is an unpredictable president and on the other hand, you know, he did telegraph. He's been saying that he wants to sound a note of unity in the speech. But you know, he is a pugnacious character. So I wonder if it will be a dominant team this unity saying that he's supposedly going to try out. I think we should expect a fair number of of claims about immigration, we have a database here at the fact checker in which we track every false and misleading claim that the president has made since he took office and immigration by far is is the biggest category of false and misleading claims. And obviously the border wall is still the big backdrop to his presidency. And so I think you can expect a lot of that. I think you can expect him to rightly claim some credit for the bright economic news. We've had recently. Although, you know, if he starts to veer into trade, you know, that's that's something where he often says falter misleading things to when he's talking about trade with China China. Yeah. I mean, China all he's done is we're talking to fact checker Sal Rizzo from the Washington Post, the one we always hear from Trump is that undocumented immigrants caused an increase in crime. We know that's not true. All the evidence says the opposite. Do we know if he's going to be talking about that? During the state of the union, and are we actually going to get a transcript of the state of the union? Yes. I think we can expect some perhaps tomorrow's shortly before this speech. They they do recognize although the administration you're right is different from previous ones. They do recognize vantage to kind of teasing out some of the themes that they're going to be talking about if not the whole speech what's running count on lies because you guys have been tracking Trump's lies. I know you'd like to call misstatements, but I'm gonna call him is what is the current count right now. We have the evidence. We call them lies. The issue is that it's very hard to know someone's intent even with Trump who who is a serial purveyor of Pereira occasions, but. On a serial purveyor for. But Pereira like it I like it, but we do technically in the database call them false and misleading claims. Just because it's hard to discern. Yeah. I yeah. And that's eight thousand four hundred and fifty eight how many eight thousand four hundred fifty eight as of yesterday February third. Wow. Thank you so much. I really appreciate it. And you keep it up. So you'll be counting tomorrow night. I would imagine. Yes. We will be Naccache. Thank you. Again. The Washington Post Salvador Izzo, the fact checker nice enough.

And so the secretary of state put out this list, assuming that because fifty eight thousand of these people voted in ninety five thousand of these people had registered to vote that therefore all of them were suspicious characters.

"Savings to get by. I'm Tanzania Vega. And that's next time on the takeaway from WNYC NPR. I we'll bring you the takeaway program from noon till one o'clock today here. This is forum. I'm Michael Krasny. And we're coming to you live from KiKi Dee in San Francisco, we're talking about President Trump's Oval Office address and the situation the ongoing situation at the border, which he called a security crisis. We talked earlier with Salvador Rizzo of the Washington Post, and we also spoke with our own Russo logos. And now we have Ron Elving with us from NPR news and Julie small here in studio k Kuwaitis criminal Justice and immigration team. And I was just saying Julia fair that the president talked in his speech last night about well, the humanitarian crisis, but also spoke about how he saw suffering and he held people's hands and trying to present himself as president of empathy and humanity. And I'm wondering the picture that he gave us was carrying president. And there was a picture of kind of suffering that he was tuned to in some ways, or at least trying to present himself as being attuned to what was your reaction to that? Julie as a reporter. Well, I. I guess I I feel that does those murders were in incredibly violent and brutal and horrible. And we can't just dismiss them outright. You know that that because it's only a handful of people really elevated the suffering of a few people to does national spotlight. But the logic of it doesn't make sense to me, you know, that that if you had kept all these immigrants out this would never have happened. We don't know also like what good immigrants might do. Maybe they save people. Maybe they prevent crimes we it's sort of the logic of it doesn't make sense. But I did think it was powerful to the audience that he was speaking to when he talked about, you know, just building a wall around your house doesn't mean you hate the people on the outside. It means you love the people on the inside. And I think, you know, a lot of us could probably relate to that. But he doesn't hit his actions starting belie that because I feel that his actions to the people on the outside has. I've been very hostile and the empathy that he provided to these families who suffered these brutal murders of their loved ones e did not extend to the immigrants who are coming here because they've been brutalized and they've seen people murdering their countries run. I wanna get your reaction to some of this. But can I go to something else with you? I am also interested before we go to our calls and emails in hearing from you on some really big news. Rod Rosenstein, has essentially tendered what looks like a resignation in a few weeks. And I don't know how that's going to go over in terms of the ongoing Muller investigation. But now you've got Paul Manafort essentially, having Paul data shared poll. Data has come out and all the molar desiccation. Some of this is redacted, of course. But it's come out that tighter Russian intelligence during the campaign, and that speaks of collusion. We have been wondering for many months, just what Robert Muller might be finding out about the relationships between elements of the Trump campaign in two thousand sixteen and elements of ladder, Putin's inner circle, and we have known for some time that Paul Manafort had done work for people who are close to bladder Putin who were part of the Ukrainian government and some of the back and forth between the utan Ukrainian government and Moscow during the years when Putin had a puppet running Ukraine for him, and that man employed, Paul Manafort, so we know that their relationship is here. We know there were some rather large debts that were incurred by Paul Manafort. We know that he had business relationships with the number of people, including a one by the name of Dera Pashko, who's very close to Putin, and it now eventuates drum apparently they winning. Ryan sorry to interrupt news. Closer with Constantine Clem. Nick wasn't. He that was well, that's the person that is the person who seems to have been the go-between right in the case of what we're talking about right now. And that is some polling data from the two thousand sixteen Trump all of the Trump campaign rather in two thousand sixteen this is not a public poll. This is not something you could have found in the newspapers or online. This is inside Trump material inside information from the Trump campaign that was being shared back and forth with a Russian Constantin. Kalinic who has these connections? Who has these ties to the kinds of people that we have been finding a murky and finding suspicious with respect to what their interest in Mr. Trump's election might be. And we know that the Putin regime was using a variety of techniques to boost Trump's prospects. So this looks like collusion now all we know for this moment is that the molar investigators were putting this forward to a judge. We know that they're prosecutors. We're planning to talk about this. And so now, we know a little bit more of what did not come out because that last trial for Paul Manafort was obviated when he pled guilty. This brings some to the four of the material that we were thinking we might see back in September. But as I say got obscured because that trial never went forward. This looks more like evidence of collusion, then perhaps anything we have seen thus far as we say, not finally proven only part of the prosecution teams case. And if so it is a big game changer and a big eyebrow raiser and could have something to do with some of the other strategic thinking going on in the White House right now. And then he thoughts about the most Stein the resignation pretending to late of William bar who has made some statements that seem to put him at odds with an ongoing belief or credibility the molar investigation. As I understand it. He is planning to stay until bar is confirmed and in place. Of possibly taking part in some transition. But he has said from the beginning of the Trump administration. He expected to serve for about two more years. Sounds like it might be that almost to the day depending on how long it takes to get far confirmed that may last into February. But it appears that it will be on about that to your timetable that he had said a couple of years ago. It doesn't look like a firing. There is no clear sign that he is being forced out. And yet, of course, it just completes the picture of a takeover of the Justice department by people who are not in any sense beholden to preserving. And continuing the Mueller investigation that could also have something to do with what appears to be an acceleration of the Muller investigations reporting charging and carrying through of its mandate. Let's hear what's on the minds of our listeners and or on their hearts. Let me go first to you. Neil, you're on good morning. Yeah. If you could talk to guests could talk a little bit about the definition and the use from the president and his opposition on illegal immigrants. I could be wrong. But it seems that Trump is intentionally putting in that category. All the categories groups of asylum-seekers that he wishes weren't asylum seekers like victims of domestic violence people who enter the country and seek asylum. Once they're in the country rather than the port of entry all of these moves that he is challenging, but they haven't been successful yet. And it seems that the left and the right of the president and his opposition are talking past each other on the numbers of illegal immigrants, and that nuance doesn't seem to get fleshed out in the media much. I could be wrong. But if your guests could talk about that, and maybe the numbers of immigrants that fall into those categories, you could be right to Julia. When I was in that spot on. I mean, this has been happening. A lot that lumped in with people who have some sort of criminal background who are seeking entry are all the people who came to ports of entry who were turned away. And then may have crossed between ports of entry because they were turned away at the legal port of entry. People are being prosecuted for entering to seek asylum very questionable that that. They actually broke the law that they have a right to seek asylum even between ports of entry. That's coming up in the courts, we're going to see some legal stuff over that. But yeah, I think it's it gets all lumped together. And you have to be very careful when reading press releases from border patrol from the administration about who they're arresting. And and who these criminal aliens are because now criminal alien as anyone who entered without papers. Well, the numbers are indeed mashed together in many ways, that's really quite disturbing. But also what about the numbers Ron Elving get back to what I think of as a temp by the president essentially to sell the American people on this. You said indeed, he's probably talking more to the base and talking more perhaps the members of the Republican party and those on the right in the world of journalism or alleged journalism. But I'm wondering also about the fact that. Most every poll seems to show that the president's idea of Wallis simply not supported out there in Peoria or wherever. It seems actually a bit surprising that with all the emphasis that's been put on this by the president. And with all of the border security talk that we have had all the way back really to nine eleven and the turnaround in our attitude towards immigration, particularly the turnaround in the Republican party's attitude towards immigration back in the nineteen eighties, and the Republican party was supportive. Ronald Reagan was highly supportive of immigration and Ronald Reagan, even used the word amnesty and signing the nineteen Eighty-six immigration reform act. So there has been a big change in the last fifteen twenty years in the language has changed a great deal, and given all of that one would expect that there would be stronger even support among Donald Trump's base, and among Republicans more generally a four this concept of the wall. But it does not seem to have really caught the public imagination in the same way that other aspects of the Trump program have it does not seem to have been. Adequately sold. And so the president perhaps falling back on some of his background in the real estate world seems to be ratcheting up constantly his his characterization of what the issue or the problem or the crisis in his wind ridge actually is and whether or not it would justify a something as extreme as building a wall or something as extreme as closing the border or declaring a national emergency all things he is apparently considering his options. More of your calls. We go next to you. Mark you're on the air. Good morning. Hey, thanks. Let's keep in mind. There's a six hundred mile existing wall that was built beginning in nineteen ninety four with Clinton all the way up through Obama that the Democrats eighty percent of the congress supported and this is clearly political theater and Apocrypha on the part of the Democrats to try to pretend that this is something new that they don't support and anyone who thinks that thirty thousand apprehensions a month is not a security crisis has to be kidding themselves response from you run Elving..

"Melvilletrust dot org and on Twitter at melvilletrust showers are likely this morning, and we'll see a chance of showers this afternoon. We're expecting highs from the upper fifties to low sixties along with southerly winds between ten and twenty five miles per hour. It's now six minutes past nine welcome to this morning's forum. I'm Michael Krasny. We're gonna be talking this hour about President Trump's Oval Office speech on the border wall last night. But first President Trump tweeted earlier today that he is cutting off federal money to fight California wildfires claiming the money is being wasted. And we're joined now by K acuity, politics and government reporter Marie so law goes, welcome marisha. Hey, Michael, thanks for having me. Glad to have you. Well, this is a tweet, and it's a threat. Or is it actually something that's an operation. Well, unclear as often happens with the president's sort of early morning tweets, you know, this came out cake, you eighty many of us have been reaching out to FEMA and two other officials doesn't state and federal government trying to get a hold on. Whether this is actually something that's happening or not. We haven't gotten any confirmation kick. You news has actually chosen not to report on this until we have a little more clear understanding, and I think the context is important because we've seen this happened before we've seen the president make sort of statements threatening California was funding around emergencies. And I think it's important to note that in the past at least, it's never there's never been realized I've been fed some always stepped up whether it was the Oroville dam crisis. Whether it's the fires that have swept the state over the last two years. And so I think that you know, one thing we're trying to do in the media is responsible and figure out what this means. Of course, it's the president. But you know, it's it's a pretty vague statement. He's saying I ordered to send no more money unless they get their act together on forest management. So that's pretty similar to what he said in the past. And again, those threats didn't materialize talking again about improper forest management and cash outlay in the billions because of that. But there's also and I'd like to get your read on this. There's also apparently some movement now of not only California under a new governor newsome's leadership, but also along with Oregon and Washington to essentially asked for a doubling federal funding to manage forest lands. Yeah. And it's unclear if if the timing of this is related to that. I was at the news conference yesterday up in this year foothills in the tunnel colefax where the new governor Gavin Newsom stood alongside everyone from the head of Cal fire and the state CHP and emergency services and the head of the national guard to talk about the need. For a you know, the state to do more obviously intimate initiatives that he was rolling out. But also for this appeal to the federal government, and what these governors of three western states wrote is that, you know, we've all put tens of millions of dollars in recent years into forest house and in contrast, the US for service has seen its budget cut by more than two billion since the president took office a couple of years ago. And so I think that you know, there's there's a lot of also just like factual things that I think are important to to clarify here. One of which is that most of the fires. We've seen have not been forest. Fires. I mean, clearly, we do need better forest management. I think that's something everyone across the political spectrum agrees with. But if you look at what happened in paradise with the campfire in cinema Napa county with the Allison tabs fires. These did start in areas where there's a wildland urban interface, but they quickly spread and became. I'm really more suburban and urban blazes. And so I think that you know, there's. A lot of just sort of confusion in the president put out statements like this that are totally based on what we're seeing on the ground here in California. We'll just remember tweeted that he was going to be pulling out of Syria. We'd be pulling out of Syria, and that seemed to change over a few days. But I appreciate very much your reporting. We will obviously continue to follow this story. And that's where he's a Lagos Cutie politics and government reporter. Thank you Maria. Well, let me bring Ron Elving on Ron Elving courses senior editor and correspondent on the Washington desk of NPR news and run. What do you make out of this life latest tweet before we go to the president's speech last night? It does seem to be very much in that category. That you were describing a moment ago. The president has also in recent days threatened to shut the border with Mexico closed down all transactions between the two countries. Cut down shut down all transportation between the two countries eastern that before he's never actually done it. Virtually no one thinks he could possibly be serious about that considering it's a six hundred billion dollars a year relationship. Not to mention the millions of people who would be involved, and as a result, the president just likes to tweet things like this. He likes to say that he is going to shut down a border or pull our troops out of a country. And then the people around him have to scramble for days weeks to either contain the damage or deny that it's even happening in the first place. I wanna talk with you run in some detail about last night's speech. But before I do I'm going to go to Salvador Rizzo who is reporting. For the fat. And and for the fact checker, which is in the Washington Post himself that are good to have you back with us on forum. Welcome great to be with you. Let's begin by talking about some of the facts from last night's speech with you. I mean, you're calling him in the post said from the first sentence, the president had to be challenged in terms of reliability or credibility talking about this being security crisis at the southern border. Yes. So the speech I got off in Iraq flight, in fact, checkers, you know, how they would certainly we saw it as a piece of the puzzle with President Trump since he's been a candidate. He has promoted the false. Construct that immigration leads to more crime. You know, any reputable research that you know, you might come across as the opposite. You know, legal and illegal immigration tends to lower crime rates where where those individuals settle in the United States. And so from the very top of the speech, the president described the situation along the US Mexico border is a security crisis. And he said that this was the time to act that it was an inflection point that he he profiled, you know, a few instances a few select cases of illegal immigrants who committed violent gory crimes, and he did it in detail how he's talking about drugs and overdose deaths in the United States, and it's all one big ball of misleading and carefully constructed deception. You know, if if you're wondering, you know, what a security crisis looks like at the border. I would point everyone to the year two thousand. When there were one point six million apprehensions of people trying to cross a legally in fiscal year, two thousand eighteen the number was below four hundred thousand and there has been twenty years of steady decline in the number border apprehensions. So the the idea that this is a new and urgent and, you know, dangerous crisis at the border is is just as just a false contract. There is however humanitarian crisis with all these families trying to come in. And we'll talk with Julie small later in this hour about that. K Kuti's criminal Justice and immigration team. But I want to talk with you a little bit more about misstatements and well lies for that matter. I mean when the president talks, for example, but thousands of people coming into legal immigrants trying to enter the country. I think you could say hundred safely at this point. But also, you mentioned drugs, and you've got the president talking about all these drugs coming through. And the fact of the matter is he's totally ignoring the fact that most of these drugs are coming through legal entry points. That's right. And so the irony here is that the proposal that is being discussed in congress that has Republican and democrat support which significantly enhance Puerto agents ability to enter dicked, you know, smugglers and drugs and all that kind of it would provide new technology training and resources for beefed up. You know introduction of those drugs at Lille personality. A wall would not necessarily stop the flow of commerce. You know, all these trucks and trailers and individuals and vans. It's still be crossing. They would you know, the opportunity to smuggle drugs inside those vehicles would still be there. The DA drug enforcement agency reports every year that only a very small percentage of the drugs that are interdicted on the border are not at ports of entry are trying to our people are trying to smuggle them through. You know, I mean while they're crossing somewhere along the wilderness. One thing that the president didn't say that he'd been saying right up to the speech was that. There are terrorists coming in. He seemed to obviate that. And the fact of matter is at the State Department says there's no credible evidence of that. But there was an outright lie in the speech last night. A couple of them. What are the perhaps the biggest ones are most obvious ones was the fact that somehow Mexico is paying for the new trade deal with NAFTA for this wall as he promised in his campaign Mexico with pay for it. This is nonsense. Mexico's not paying and the trade deal. Doesn't mean really that Mexico is putting forth money. The trade deal isn't even ratified yet. And you're right. I mean, it is nonsense. That's not how trade deals for trade works. There's no accounting. There's no Bank account where money is deposited by Mexican consumers are individuals for the purpose of building a wall. It's all based on the theory, you know, which is not entirely divorced from reality. But it's just, you know, very devoted the theory that the trade deal with spur economic activity in the United States, and the added tax revenue collected by the government from that activity. You know, could be re purpose at all. But it's all in terms of you know, I mean, there are so many things that affect GDP trade and tax revenue that you can't rely on on. You know, you don't you don't even know what kind of revenue you'll be getting at the deal isn't ratified, and it's not how it works. And at the end of the day, you still need an appropriation from congress to be able to build stuff with the money that you're collecting from taxes. What about his putting forth the arguments Democrats really want a steel barrier? Who said our in record is wanting is still very instead of a concrete one that was sort of the car ball that we all that pricked all of our ears last night as we were listening there. There is no democrat who's on record saying, you know, if you do steel wall instead will happily I zero not even not even one of them. And so this this proposal has been floated by the White House, including by Mick Mulvaney. The acting chief of staff and presumably it's come up in the discussions that top officials in the Trump administration are having with Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and other Democrats, but it's wrong to say that Democrats are requesting that there's no evidence of that. And they deny it. So there's much more we could pick apart here..

"Wanna see us keep doing that. Slow rolling us for thirty five years now on this. And they're planning on doing it again. Now, all they need is for the president to buckle and reopen the government with getting nothing in exchange, and then they can start discussing with the Democrats how we're going to secure the border which we've been doing since tip O'Neill was president. I think Halley's comet has come by twice since we started talking about this. I'm embellishing slightly, and and the Democrats still want to slow roll again. Good morning. Good morning and welcome. Hi, enjoy the big speech last night, and the Democrats and the glassy eyed loon nanny Pelosi with her doa is an expanded pupils where the pupils any police officers are medical professionals out there. Just the same thing that I saw with those pupils on Nancy Pelosi and she's looking right into bright lights, and somehow people's were dilated like she was on crystal meth herself. Maybe that's the maybe that's the secret. I'm not sure, but it was something they contributed nothing. Even the news media even McGee. Gorilla on CNN and others had to confess that. Nanny, and Chuck really didn't contribute much to the discussion at all. They they they didn't seem to be into it. Either the president laid out facts. And it was it was teleprompter Trump. It wasn't free form Trump. But let's get Trump out on the campaign trail outta out on the campaign. It is a permanent campaign. Like Howard Dean said they've inflicted the permanent campaign on us. I guess we just have to deal with that. Because there's no way out. No way out. No way out. It is. It's an amazing time to be alive. These these people in the democrat party and the news media, but I repeat myself really something really something to behold. I'd like to know what you thought about it all and what you think about it going forward. And with that said, you know what I wanna do? I want to start with some of the ridiculous. Let's go to sound byte number fifteen want to do some of those ridiculous. Fact, check CNN fake fact checker guy because this was an embarrassment and and John king because now the suggest as well at been the suggestion all the president just needs to come around to the Democrats position. Just just stop all this just be a democrat. Okay. And then the media will stop dogging you and haranguing you harassing you. And making all these outrageous Clinton just come around to Pelosi's position. And then the media. Well, this is what they say. But it's a lie. It's a trick. It's Charlie Brown in the football because when you come around to their position, and they say. You're banned in your base. Your best is going to abandon you you betrayed your central campaign promise near done with your base your over in twenty twenty. So the moment the president capitulates and goes over to the democrat position that becomes the media's new narrative I've seen it again. And again, it's a playbook thing, it's obvious. It's predictable. But listen, the the president gave a speech it was it was. In terms of substance. It was humdinger Dinger in terms of style. It was President Trump on the teleprompter. It's not as most natural place, Barack Obama assassinated Americans overseas, and and he kept a kill list and the Oval Office and use the IRS against his political enemies. And and and they lied a lot of the intelligence community and the FBI and the Justice department against their political enemies to, but he could read a teleprompter couldn't he was. He was held at a teleprompter. He sure was let's go to CNN after the after the speech and after the democrat response number fifteen Don lemon was on with a democrat by the name of Maria, Elena, Salinas, Maria, Elena, Salinas, and and Don lemon and this other democrat to angry hate-filled anti-trump Democrats posing as journalists are analysts or something. We're on a cable channel last night. I think they call it CNN. They played a soundbite. President trump. And and then they and then they made their comments about it. It was something to watch. They they're trying to affect check the president. They were trying to do it in real time on CNN. They didn't check anything in real time. And after the fact when the after the speech, they went to affect check and the so-called fact checks where we're like a satire was like the Senator Night Live version of fact checks President Trump, Don lemon, Maria, Elena, Salinas. Last month twenty thousand migrant children who are illegally brought into the United States a dramatic increase. These children are used as human pawns by vicious coyotes and ruthless gangs. One in three women are sexually assaulted on the dangerous trek up through Mexico women. Our children are the biggest victims by far of our broken system. This is the tragic reality of illegal immigration on our southern border. This is the cycle of human suffering to I am determined to end. So that's the president tell you about real things twenty thousand migrants children. He called them the coyotes the human trafficking, the sexual assaults. The women the children fair the worst and all of this. And look the Democrats want to preserve this as the status quo. This is the democrat position we must keep. The drugs flowing into the country the heroin the feno the cocaine the marijuana must continue to flip. We must twenty thousand children twenty thousand children, and then they come and so well, but many of them are being brought by their parents, or at least one parent, or at least a guardian or at least a chaperone like they won the dating game or something. And they're off on a vacation. And that's fine with the Democrats. That's good with the Democrats because I don't care about humanity. I mean, the left has massacred one hundred million people in one hundred years, they they obviously don't care about humanity. They send your check to Planned Parenthood and. Don, lemon jumped in with his pal Maria, Elena, Salinas, and I just there's so pathetic some realistic give the facts because a mess created the border as a result of the detention of the is a result of children and families the change in the asylum rules that is a problem of the president's own creation. Yeah. That's right. That's right. That's all Trump's fault. Trump Trump is responsible. He's been president for two years, and it's all his fault. That's journalism at CNN. That's donlon. He's an award winning journalist says this is what passes for journalism on CNN and in America. And then you'll be surprised to learn that standing next to Maria Elena Salinas agrees wholeheartedly because there's no disagreement on CNN. It is this was lie after lie after lie. Yeah. It was lie after lie after lie. That's it is it was lie after lie after lie. And that's why the Washington Post began with the first misleading statement in President Trump's Oval Office address Tuesday night came in the first sentence. Trump addressed the Washington Post rights, Trump addressing a national television audience from behind his desk from when Obama was here roic. There was music. There were trumpets there were fly overs. It was it was glorious. See? He spoke words that dropped like droplet. Gold. He warned security crisis at the southern border. And the Washington Post says even though the number of people caught trying to cross illegally is near twenty year. Lows is at first of all I question that as fact I need to fact check that. Secondly, they lead with not a falsehood or ally. But something that's misleading. And then this is their I fact check in their big story that there is security crisis at the southern border the Washington Post position as the child sex. Slavery is not a crisis trafficking in women is not a crisis. They the abuse of children's not a crisis. The sexual assaults are not a crisis the heroin flowing by the ton. Not a crisis the crystal meth cocaine not a crisis. This is all fine. And this is Salvador Rizzo, a defender of the status quo and a puppy for the democrat party and their positions because the Washington Post is not really a news organization at all. Now, let's go to the CNN fake checks because this was kind of laugh out loud. And and we've got Alexandria Casio Cortes as well. This was this was good stuff. Daniel Dale is a Canadian and CNN and he's a fake. Journalists is liberal is at Trump hitter. He was on CNN last night with John king and McGee was young with mcgilla gorilla was that mcgilla. It wasn't wasn't mcgilla was one of the one of the fake set CNN. Daniel Dale is a Canadian journalist, and and they introduced to my keys. The most fantastical fact checker the world has ever known. He's the oracle effect checking is Daniel Dell. And and and they took a quote from President Trump. Do you have the President Trump or President Trump talked about the walls and politicians President Trump talked about walls and politicians some have suggested a barrier is immoral. Then why do wealthy politicians build walls fences gates around their homes? They don't build walls because they hate the people on the outside. But because they love the people on the inside. Interesting interesting. So that's what the president said. Well, why do wealthy politicians build walls? Well, gosh because they wanna keep the dirty people out as really the correct answer. That's the truth. Now. Then let's go to the fake fact checker Daniel Dale on CNN responding to that. Now, did you hear the president mentioned Barack Obama there? No, no. The president didn't mention Barack Obama there. He said, why do wealthy politicians build walls around their homes? Right. And and I can Dianne Feinstein and Nancy Pelosi, many palatial residences, very very wealthy people. Even Paul Ryan caught a raft of stuff for building a big wall fence around his house in Wisconsin. And lots of millionaires millionaires now watch how Daniel Dale defensively reflexively jumps to the defense of Barack Obama whose name was not even mentioned there Daniel Dell and this is the fact check to things, and I have both things for you. And he was he took umbrage he bristled at the suggestion that wealthy politicians built walls around their homes, and again without mentioning Obama, Daniel del sniffling groveling little sick of that is democrat party Schill jumps to the defense of Obama, even though Bama had not been mentioned. He also implicitly referred again to the Obamas house. Imbued listen with a powerful people who build walls and gains outside their homes. Why do they do? Yes. Of course, still have significant secret service protection, they do have some fencing as their neighbors. Do the giant wall around their house or compound as Trump calls it? He wasn't talking about Obama. He didn't mention Obama. I don't know why you're leaping to the defense of Obama when Obama was not insulted or harmed or even mentioned in any way. But that's what these sniffling groveling little cultists do instead of journalism instead of fact, but this is the first fact that he checked this is the charlatanism that passes for journalism and passes for fetching. And you know, I laughed out loud. When I saw these these clowns playing this crap because it was clear that they had no facts. To take issue with all of the facts where correct and accurate, and that the president had crossed all of the T's and dotted all the is the numbers were checked the facts were checked and CNN with their team of fact, checkers fact, checking in real time, we're able to come up with something. The president didn't say the president didn't say anything about Obama. And and did Daniel Dale then say, of course, Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi and Dianne Feinstein. No, it's just Obama got and there's mcgilla gorilla whose fathers a democrat governors brothers. A democrat governor pay no attention to any of that. And and and by the way, I I live close to the Obamas not real close because their houses eight and a half million dollars before all the improvements. But I after a while I could walk to the Obamas house. They live in the shadow of the main mosque in Washington DC as the Washington Post has never reported and in the shadow of the mosque where the president's eight and a half million dollars. Which he bought from Joe Lockhart? Who was the White House spokesman for Bill Clinton who has now a C N N commentator who is a former CNN employees. I know because I know Joe Lockhart and I took Joe Lockhart job at CNN on the assignment desk when Joe Lockhart left his job at CNN to go work for the Democrats just by the way, but I know the Obamas house in the shadow of the mosque, and oh, there's no wallet awfully defense about something that wasn't said, and they built a big iron fence with a brick wall base and brick wall columns around the house, and you don't need that much. Because as he said there is heavy secret service protection around his house, including the entire street in front of US House being blocked off with giant concrete jersey, barriers secret service, uniformed division. Cars parked crosswise. At either end of the street like you're entering veto Corleones compound guys with shotguns, big attack..

"At all goes, it doesn't go unchallenged praised it. It's it's worship today. They love this stuff. Good morning and welcome last night. The president delivered a big speech took a nation from the Oval Office and the resolute desk CNN was standing by ready. To fact, check in real time in real time during the speech there are going to check that was a little rating stunt because it's all a television show, just a horrible horrible television show and the president spoke on CNN. I watched CNN I tuned in. I got suckered into their fake promos because there are selling cans of stuff over there. And I bought one last night. I watch to watch him. Fact, check CNN says see them fact check the president real time. And they didn't. There was nothing. They didn't during the speech. There is nothing. And then they brought on some silly little man from Canada afterward who had the most ridiculous flailing about just a comical fact check and the Washington Post today to what they're fake check. What our disgrace, our news media is. And I mean, I have the Washington Post piece excuse me. That's that's the fact check. I it right here. Fact checking President Trump's Oval Office address on immigration. It's like a satire of effect check their their absurd, and they don't even know their so lost in their insane little bubble that they they don't know reality from from the fantasy world in which they live extraordinary self last night. The president it was prompt her Trump, right? It was teleprompter. Trump instead of off the cuff Trump alive in front of an audience Trump. It was very restrained. Hey, no. That the news media over there. They're like the cartoon wolf licking their chops. Waiting to fact, check we're gonna affect check everything that's wrong and this silly little Canadian on CNN afterward. Hey said well when he said that politicians have walls around their house. He was clearly referencing Obama at because they all have to rush to the aid of Obama because they're such sick offense such but kissers such worshipers of their their their their lost to deity. I guess they're like reminded me of the made in defending Damien thorn in the woman who threw herself off the roof for the new surrounded neck shouting. It's all for you Damien. It's all for you know, he couldn't have been talking about the wall around Nancy, Pelosi's Houser, Diane Feinstein's, many houses are or even Paul Ryan's house where he built all around us and was mocked couldn't be tighter immediately. Russia's the defensive Obama who wasn't even mentioned who wasn't even cited. And certainly isn't the only one with a wall around his house, and that was one of his big fact checks this defect. Check something Trump didn't say something did he actually didn't? He didn't mention Obama. What is talking about the wall around the house or at any other time, and these people are just such an embarrassment? And then the the other great fact check and that CNN. Had his other presidents talking about child trafficking at the border. Well, he didn't provide any statistics about child trafficking at the border by the president should have stopped and put up an e sold at a shirt and brought out a pointer like Jimmy Carter and gone through all of that. And then it could be like a forty five minute speech instead of a nine minute speech to the nation. There's such frauds? There's such Charlotte's president. I'll be this is all that CNN pathetically. Had fake fact check last night, and it is then they just embarrassed themselves humiliated themselves. The president delivered a teleprompter speech. He's not comfortable with the teleprompter because he doesn't do a lot of teleprompter. But but he did a solid job last night. Yeoman's job nailed all of the facts got a lot of points across. And the news media is contesting the most absurd things just the most ridiculous things. The Washington Post begins with a comical lead fact checking President Trump's Oval Office address. On immigration, Salvador Rizzo. Democrat DNC Representative typist from the girls steno pool at the DNC. He typed up the first misleading statement now, MS note the word misleading. This is the lead of the story here note that word misleading not false but misleading so it's not. So let's start with this. They they didn't find anything false and they're leading with misleading K misleading. The first misleading statement in President Trump's Oval Office address Thursday night came in the first sentence. And and, you know, the first misleading statement in your story came in the first sentence, coincidentally Trump addressing a national television audience from behind his desk warned of quote a security crisis at the southern border end quote. Even though the number of people caught trying to cross illegally is near a twenty year lows. There's no crisis never mind the heroin the Fenton all the cocaine the reef for the human sex trafficking. The women the sexual assaults that children that's not a crisis. That's the status quo and Salvador Rizzo as a dutiful steno from the DNC pretending to be a reporter at the Washington Post as these you know, all of that. That's not a crisis pay. No attention. There's nothing to see here. And this is the theme of the media the status quo must be defended at all costs because the Democrats say so John king on CNN last night along with this Canadian silly little person. So well, you know, really there there are some problems with the Republicans and oughta come around to the democrat point of view because the solution is to come around to the democrat point of view. And that's what the. Media is pushing for that's what CNN is pushing for because they're corrupt. They're not biased. They're they're. They're not inept they're corrupt their ethically corrupt. They're morally bankrupt their journalistically corrupt. The these are not journalists there, they're Democrats with key pads. And and that's and that's that. I'd like to know how you oh. And then and then you got Nancy. I'm Chuck Nancy and shut came out. And this was a lot of fun as you know, the thing is going around. Now, they look like the twins in the shining with their shoulders pushed together looking weird Nancy Pelosi's pupils dilated to the point where you couldn't see retinas anymore anymore. And and she's standing there like sucking food out from between her teeth and went Chuck has talking just looking like a weirdo. Looked like Mr. burns from the Simpsons. And and and there they are pushed together with one podium, and they're sharing it. And and trying to look comfortable together on the piece in the post today. It's just a glowing piece about how wonderful their have four anti Trump pieces on the front page. You turn the page and a glowing piece about how wonderful Schulkin Nancy are. Now, they get along great and boy they finish finish each other's sentences. And and they just assume their dating just based on what I read there. And it was the this hang on. I still have a Washington poster. Just to one more time because once was not enough, absolutely extraordinary. So the fact checkers have decided that he was talking about Obama's house when he said wall, even though he didn't say Obama and Obama's not the only one with a wall around his house. And and that the fact checker on CNN also seemed to suggest that there really is no child trafficking on the border. Then to the extent there is issued worry about it. That's an acceptable level the status quo of child abuse on the border is fine. The number of dead is fine. The number of sexual assaults is fine. Pay. No attention to the heroin coming cross by the ton pay. No attention to the Fenton all the cocaine coming across by the ton never mind. The fact that seventy thousand Americans died of drug overdoses last year. It was two thousand seventeen I think the number, but it's I guess do not in eighteen also more than we lost in the Vietnam where I was talking about this yesterday. The president included a lot of these points in his speech. Last night some of the stats I used yesterday. And and and who is it. The AP is contesting some of the drug stats. Jacker, Dan, ackroyd and trading places on wasn't heroin PCP down the Associated Press. And all of those tons are not heroin a lot of it is other opioids unfit all said, they're fine with that they're fine with the the tons of sentinel, the tons of heroin that the Washington Post CNN the rest of their defenders of the saddest grow as long as the status quo as well. It's being supported by the Democratic Party. And that's what they do. And they will they will throw themselves in front of trains to defend Barack Obama, even when Barack Obama isn't mentioned and Nancy Pelosi looked like a glassy eyed loon yesterday, she looked like draw Bambi from boys life for eyes were so big. And she had these these pans for pupils like olive oil. And and when when Schumer was speaking she looked like she was like, the stepford speaker of the house or something this stepford speaker. Well, see. She was so slathered in lotion doubtless like six hundred dollars an ounce lotion secret to living forever. She's like the Greek goddess ISIS, and and she's got this lotion Oliver face. I was afraid that whatever circuit boards was gonna short out. It was almost disturbing to watch your Sanger. I actually round rewound on the DVR while shimmer was speaking just to focus on my best girl, and I could just focus on Nancy Pelosi standing there in silence. And it was it was creepy and hilarious at the same time. Hilarious and creepy. So fact checks and all that good stuff. Obviously if that's all that CNN had to fake fact check, then the president didn't deviate from the facts they want to contend that. There is no crisis at the southern border. That's the Washington Post lead their latest. There's no crisis at the southern border that the the child trafficking, the sex trafficking, drug smuggling, the violations of law that tens of thousands showing up at our border looking for a gift basket. That's just fine. That's what the news media's position is because that's what the democrat party's position as the democrat party's position is that all these evils all of the drugs that trafficking human child, sex trafficking that these are all perfectly acceptable levels, and we should do nothing. In fact, they had what's her name on CNN? Also who pretends to be a Republic. When asked about says, well, look, the drug dealers are just gonna find another way to get the drugs in any way, which is to just sort of shrug and throw up your hands and say, well what we're not gonna do anything about it. Because the drugs are going to get in any way. And besides it's our sons and our boyfriends that are doing the drugs, and they want them. And so the democrat position is defend the status quo at all costs. That's the democrat party's position that all of the levels of heroin Fenton, all cocaine coming in of women being abused acceptable levels of children being trafficked acceptable levels. That's all fine. They don't wanna lift a finger digit to impede any of that. They are unwilling to act on behalf of the American people because they're too busy being in a whizzing match with the president United States because of politics, and you can burn in hell as far as they're concerned your children. Can die of overdoses as far as they're concerned cremate them don't use up real estate because they've got a new green agenda. It's the green new deal, and they don't want us up space when you die of drug overdose. Just don't call them. Because don't you know, who they are?.

"They say it's not the most effective way to stop things. They say there isn't a crisis on the border except for the crisis of the these families seeking asylum, and they turn themselves in they're not trying to sneak in. So a wall wouldn't really help with that is what they're saying. I have to imagine that this is going to get a lot tougher later this week when the first pay period happens when people don't get their paychecks. And maybe a lot more people will start walking off the job. Yeah. And you know, a very small sample size. But I've been hearing from my friends who work in the federal government. Asking me what's going to happen that they're very worried about getting their paychecks about not getting back pay for the time. They've been furloughed. The the, you know, the concern is there. The morale problems are real. One more thing real quick Tam Justice Ruth, Bader Ginsburg today missed the oral arguments in the supreme court for the first time since she became a Justice in nineteen Ninety-three, she's recovering from cancer surgery. What more do we know? That that is that is essentially what we know. And and it was, you know, the the first time that she's missed arguments, which is a pretty remarkable thing. But you know, all reports were that that this was caught early the the cancer that is pure. What has correspondent hammer key? Thank you. Well, let's take a look at claims made on Fox News Sunday by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about the need for a border wall. She insisted repeatedly that thousands of suspected terrorists come into the US through the southern border host. Chris Wallace was disbelieving. Let's listen roughly nearly four thousand known or suspected terrorists come into our country illegally. And we know that are most vulnerable point of entry is this. I didn't know if you're going to use it. But I studied up on this, do, you know, where those four thousand people come where they're captured the airports, not always terrible certainly department says there hasn't been any terrorists that they found coming across the air land, and it's spicy. It's all of the above. But President Trump his homeland security secretary cures to Nielsen and other administration officials have also been repeating this claim using it to bolster their push for a border wall. What's true? Let's go to the Washington Post fact, checker Salvador Rizzo. Sal, welcome great to be with you. We should say you give this claim three Pinocchio, which is not good. It means not true unpack it where did this claim start. But sit based on well, first of all depending on how they phrase it. We've also given it four Panetta's in. This instance, it was three because there was just a sliver of it that was based in fat. But as Chris Wallace rightly pointed out and insisted during this interview on Sunday, the Trump administration has not broken down whether any of those four thousand. People technically three thousand seven hundred and fifty five and fiscal year twenty seventeen whether any of them tried to enter the US through the southern border. And so that's the key issue. Because this talking point is in service of you know, the argument for the border wall. But the fact that they can't say whether any of these suspected or no terrorists are, you know, trying to cross the southern border is very telling I think, well, where do we get that number three thousand seven hundred and fifty five. So that includes anyone who has known or suspected ties to terrorism who tries to enter through any port of entry and so- airports ports of entry. There are maritime ports of entry. And there are land ports of entry on the Canadian and Mexican borders. And so what you really need. If this is going to be a talking point in service of the wall is a breakdown of how many of these individuals are trying to cross the border. There are other pieces of information that have been released by the Trump administer.

It's not even airports on US soil. It's foreign airports. It's around the world in in almost every case. These people are interdicted before they even board these flights to the United States. You're right. So you're saying that the US officials have not been able to point to any terrorists trying to cross the border into the US..
