"For being with us here at the takeout or Major Garrett matchbox great restaurant. We appreciate their hospitality. lunches on the way. Steve Steve scalise Snow House. Minority whip is our special guest. I WANNA play for you. Something Steve Congressman Whip. Steve is good. Steve is good As I mentioned at the top of the show we have lots of different voices and ideological perspectives. On this program November fifteenth we had Jamie Raskin a member of the House of Representatives on the Democratic side serves on the Judiciary Committee. I want to listen to his take. It'd be the last talk about impeachable. We're going to get onto other issues. But I want you to address this statement from I'm Jamie Raskin and then we'll move on. That's number three sir. Well I if their argument is that in the final analysis investigations were not launched. Despite despite every best effort by the President Giuliani and their henchmen and the money was ultimately released. That's essentially confession. They're they're like someone who's robbing a bank who's got two big bags of money is about to leave the bank and then the security guards pounce on the person and they dust themselves off and say. Oh we're all is well that ends well. No money was taken out of this bank. Nothing was ever converted. I mean they're basically conceding that there was a clear attempt to shake down a foreign government and to obtain this political dirt on opponent and so on they're basically admitting your reaction. Steve scalise well for him to use the term shakedown again. Go ask presidents. Alinsky he was the other person on the call. If the bank was never robbed. Then how do you arrest us. Somebody for robbing the bank. President trump never pressured them into it. In fact Zielinski himself said. I never felt any pressure to do anything and by the way. I didn't do the thing that y'all are saying the president it made me do. They never did the investigation and so ultimately Ukraine got the money by the way Ukraine. Got The money prior to the legal deadline for what it was supposed to be you don. I never saw Democrats that are all of a sudden expressing this outrage expressing outrage. When Barack Obama wouldn't give that money in aid to Ukraine Joe Biden was vice president when it gets back to the real quid pro quo? Joe Biden's the one who brag saying. He did go to Ukraine and said. I'm going to leave in six hours with the billion dollars of your money my money taxpayer taxpayer money. Unless y'all fire the prosecutor that's looking in to investigating his son any Brag and they fired the guy. I mean it used explicit language but the fact is is Joe Biden is the one who said in shook down Ukraine and said. I'm leaving with the billion dollars unless you fire the guy in so Ukraine fired the guy that was the real crime. I don't hear them talking talking about going to prosecuting Joe Biden. When you say crime you mean what kind? You don't mean a crime crime that was a quid pro quo. That was absolutely one. There wasn't one in the case of Donald Trump.

"For Some random Adam crime. It's because the president went so far above and beyond what they should have done this never they never started with crime. The other three impeachments all started with a crime yet. Pelosi looking for a definable crime at least in the Fed definable crime but at the end of the day I read the transcript of the Dolinsky phone call here. You had a president of Ukraine. Getting elected did on a platform of rooting out. Corruption thanking President trump starting thanking them for selling javelin missile so he could stand up to Russia when Obama and Biden would not sell those same missiles to to help Ukraine stand up to Russia talking about other things. They're working on and cleaning up corruption in Ukraine which everybody knew there was so so there was there was never a by the way there was was never a link between aid and investigations and so that was the heart of their their first charge impeachment the obstruction of Congress exerting executive authority is something every every president since George Washington would Jerry Nadler vote to impeach George Washington because he did the same thing that president trump is done in exerting executive privilege. You fight that out in the courts but you don't impeach a president because he says I'm going to do what every other president is done at fighting for my rights and article to just like we have rights in Article One you resolve it with article three to judicial branch year voice. Steve scalise nothing shameful or wrong about the president's conduct in this matter no laughing this Alinsky thanked president trump for the help that he's wrong. I'm GONNA pros or the two people who really were participants in the call and both of them thought it was a good call. So what what a what. If somebody else's opinion who wished Donald Trump's shouldn't have gotten elected think so nothing wrong inappropriate or improper. Now his job all presidents done his job and it's not an impeachable offense to carry out different foreign policy than maybe Nancy Pelosi would've carried a moment ago. You mentioned favorably. Moderate or centrist Democrats. I think Doug Jones might fall into that category Maybe maybe not He said this week that the evidence clearly proves.

Scholarship are that soldier that is announced surprises. His wife and kids coming. Home after four deployments everybody's tearing up I mean I guess Jerry Nadler wasn't did he think that was a lie. The tuskegee airmen who who president just made a general look rush limbaugh. Who whether you agree with or disagree with the Guy I love what rush represents but millions of people are inspired by him and now he's battling cancer and the president pays tribute to his battle with cancer and they can't stand up for any of those things I mean? I is about our state of politics. I think it says a lot about where the Democrat Party in Washington is. That's not where Democrats are across the country. Like I'm from the State of Louisiana where the blue dog started. There are still Democrats who have those. Oh same conservative values. That conservative just won re election as governor right and so it shows not all of America is so hyper partisan in their hatred of the the president and the results of the two thousand sixteen election that they carry it to a level where they won't even stand when the president applauds the success of the lowest unemployment amongst African Americans and Hispanics Hispanics in the history of our country. Everybody should have stood for that. I guess Jerry Nadler's not happy about that. He can't deny it's a fact The these economic numbers were seeing Major. Major we have the hottest economy in the world right now the USMC trade deal. Jerry Nadler voted for that. Is that a lie that he voted for me. What is wrong with these people that they wanted to knife facts and what's good about the country if they can't applaud the killing of a terrorist? Sola money does Jerry. Nadler really think it's a lie that Sola Monte killed hundreds of Americans our servicemen and women who shed their blood because of him and he was under an Iraq plotting to kill more Americans. Does Jerry Nadler really think it's ally that souleymane kill those people in the the mother and father of that woman that the Bank al-Baghdadi killed literally you raped and killed this woman and al-Baghdadi is taken out and Jerry Nadler won't stand for that and he wants to call that a lie. He owes an apology to the family of those victims. who were the victims of these evil terrorists who are now dead? Because of president trump's actions back to Speaker Pelosi locie.

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

"Telephone number eight hundred two eight two two eight eight to the White House is is is is putting out a tweet from Steve Scalise? This is interesting Steve Scalise member of the house of representatives Republican who was shot by the deranged leftist during baseball practice. Is now fully recovered and the Steve Scalise tweet that the White House is putting out reads like this. Steve Scalise confirms the House Republicans will add five billion dollars in funding for border security and money for disaster relief to the current continuing resolution. When he was told that there is likely not enough votes for that to pass the house Scalise said, that's a negative attitude. Yes, it is. So here again, the the the point of this is in the White House putting pressure here on people are already trying to say that they're not going to be able to find the money not enough votes for five billion dollars a border security in a Republican-controlled chamber. I need you to stop. And think about what we're hearing. Here. We have the president of the United States the Republican leadership come up to the house today. Two hours ago, and he told them now. We know he told them that they are not. He is not going to sign this Bill unless it has border security in it unless it's got actual money. Got word to me on this program that this Bill will have to have money allocated for border security or he will veto it. So a bunch of people react to this including Steve Scalise. Then again, the White House put this tweet out comes from there. The press office their communication shop that Steve Scalise confirms the GOP will add five billion dollars in funding for border security to the current continuing resolution. He was told there's likely not enough votes for that to pass. He said, that's a negative attitude. Not enough votes in a Republican controlled chamber. Four five billion dollars. Additional for border security. I don't know who told him. This is not mentioned in the tweet. He put out. Just that somebody said to him that that's a negative, and it might be not just one person that could be a number of people have said to me was told it says that there's likely not enough votes for that path. How can there not be enough? The president of the United States who is a Republican. His compatriots in the Republican controlled house will not put there aren't enough votes there for five Bill all they need is two hundred and eighteen okay. Just thought us how many Republicans have left town. Maybe something to to consider. We were told that even for the first vote on this number Republicans weren't there. They left because they had no place to live. Having lost their seats in the midterm elections. So this is where we are the president has made it clear any number of ways to any number of people that he will veto the spending Bill if it comes back to him without funding for the wall. Now, we're being led to believe that there's not enough votes in the house for the five billion to pass if it doesn't then it's dead. There's nothing to send over to the Senate. The has to pass the house for five then it goes to the Senate then it has to pass their. Now, what are the reasons why you can do this with budget reconciliation and not need sixty votes for it? If you wanted to try that that maneuver, which is how they got ObamaCare passed. So we'll just we'll just continue to follow this and see what's up. The important thing is the president has made it clear to a number of people, including me that he will veto it if there's no money in it. And that may well happen. And it's it's going to happen soon. Because everybody in that town wants to get out of town. And nobody in that town wants a shutdown. See that to me is going to be the primary motivation. Nobody nobody no Republican in that town wants a shutdown. Sadly. I wish that fear didn't exist. But it's real. And if if all it's gonna take is five billion measly dollars in comparison to the trillions that we spend every year. It's a rounding error if that. If that's all it would take to avoid a shutdown that it'll probably happen thinking in the Senate may be a little different on it. That's a different ball of wax all together. Here's here's a little sidelight thing. This is happening on C span or did happen moments ago. The house immigration committee was having a hearing and the secretary of homeland security was being grilled was being interrogated Kirstin. Nielsen. And apparently from my spies who have been watching C span on this democrat Representative from Illinois Luis Gutierrez started making fun of and ridiculing people who say Christmas instead of holiday season. It used to be the other way around it used to be merry Christmas. It used to be the Christmas season. It used to be Christmas this Christmas that. And then the political Lee correct crowd got in gear and said that's discriminatory. Not everybody believes in Christmas. You're insulting people by saying Christmas. And so became the holiday season and became happy holidays. And if you said merry Christmas, somebody climbed in your chili and got mad at you claimed you're being selfish and discriminatory. And you're putting other people down you being exclusionary, all these horrible rotten things. So everybody dutifully started wishing everybody. Happy holidays instead of merry Christmas. And it got to the point when you saw somebody or heard somebody say merry Christmas. It was unique when it used to be standard operating procedure. So now Luis Gutierrez for some reason at this hearing started mocking people who say Christmas instead of holiday season. And then he said. Donald Trump would share responsibility for killing baby Jesus. Because baby Jesus had to flee. It's a reference to open borders. And then he said thank God. There was no wall when Mary and Joseph needed to go to Bethlehem. For crying out loud. Just yesterday this nutcase at New York magazine. Olivia nutsy reported that people in the White House. She's hearing from people in the White House. A Donald Trump doesn't like Christmas parties. You know, why Donald Trump was like Christmas party because he jealous. He's jealous than all the attention focused on Jesus instead of him. Yeah. Donald Trump jealous of Jesus. And that's why Trump doesn't like Christmas parties that she actually reported, and it was actually discussed. On CNN, Anna and the info babe that she was telling this to the anchor believed it. Well, we've heard some stories about Trump's Z go. I guess. Yeah. He could be jealous of Jesus. It's this strange thing to hear. But yeah, I guess it's not outside the bounds of possibility. This just. So now Lewis the Donald Trump would share responsibility for killing baby Jesus, immigrations and kill ABC. What does it was he talking about here? Jesus had to flee. Thank god. There was no wall. And then he accused Kirstin Nielsen of lying on the policy of separating mothers from their children at the border, which is another made up lie by the Democrats that the media dutifully report as though it's common practice everyday. And that's work to I've had I can't take number Republican pictures were really bad. We picture there weren't any pictures. Well, you know, the pictures in the media families being separated the border, those pictures are not. But it's not happening. Don't understand Albert. It's not happening. I don't care. Rush pictures, or it's not happening Albert, then the rest of the pictures, you got to admit the pictures, look bad. Whatever happened to it isn't happening. Why can't you when people start complaining, but pictures, telling them the pictures are lies? Some people don't want to fight the battles. Anyway, it was it was on C span within the past hour. The way these people invoke Jesus, I couldn't believe it. When I heard the Democrats were singing Christmas carols on the floor of the house last night. Celebrating their apparent victory at shutting down any attempt at a wall or any attempt at. At border security. Let me grab a quick phone. Call a squeeze in here. This is Willie who is in blue point, New York. Hi willie. I'm glad you called, sir. Hello. Thank you so much rush. Rush unconcerned that the deep state could be even deeper than most people think and more sinister than most people think and going back aways. I remember in two thousand twelve supreme court decision that you and Roberts gave was so weak about the that because the federal government had the right to tax did they would necessarily be able to use that tax to implement on constitutional program. I mean, it's it's almost as if it's almost jiffy said that some guy who legally cross the street to assassinate someone on the other side of the street would be deemed innocent because he had the right to cross the street in the way to assassinating mean. It was just an insane. Verdict to me Cavanaugh recently sided with. With the Planned Parenthood. This judge in the case had a situation where he he appeared like he was going to flip out at Molin Muller's lawyers. And then he went to direct opposite way. And what I'm thinking to keep this short rush is that these people could possibly be being called why other people in the state seeing if you come up with this decision, if you give molar Greece if you throw the case out, we know things about us that we will make public. Do you think that's possible rush? I'm not gonna sit here and say that it's not possible is it likely? Yeah. As much as threat intimidation. And leverage are a part of the day to day functioning Washington. Be silly to just out of hand. Disregarded and say that you've descended into cookeville. We know the deep state is deep, and we know that it's wide, and we know that pretty much everybody in Washington is to one degree or another a member. And we know that there are dossiers on people whether somebody would make a call to the judge and make a call John. You're not the first guy that tells me that they think this is possible that wraps are being made force people to do things a certain way. I have no way of substantiating anything like that. No way of knowing if it's true, it's considering it as a possibility is is a. I mean, that's that's a big stretch right there. And one of the problems that I have with it per se is that it always exempts. People other words cavenaugh would do the right thing. Somebody's got the guts. And the judge would have done the right thing except somebody got to him and Roberts would never have made ObamaCare constitutional unless somebody it always tends to exonerate. The people of actually are doing things that are questionable. It it. It makes them victims of some sinister scheme of blackmail, or or what have you and yet we know at blackmail is alive. And well, we know the two women tried to blackmail Trump. In fact, let me find somebody. I I'm going to take a break here. I mentioned the Conrad Black piece at national review, and he hasn't it's a brilliant piece on Trump, and and all these chihuahuas that are yapping at his ankles and want to get to that and read you a particular paragraph from it and a couple of other things I have here in the stack unrelated to everything we've been discussing so far it means that Willie thanks for the call. I appreciate it. Sit tight folks were coming back with much more right as Christmas. Give a Holly jolly gift subscription.

"Heat up and NBC has you covered with our road warriors on the ground and Steve Kornacki at the big board for mornings with Joe and Mika to evenings with Chris, Chris, Rachel, Lawrence, and Brian make sense of the midterms all fall on MSNBC here with me for my maiden voyage on the off message podcast is none other than the most on message politician, perhaps in Washington DC the Representative of Louisiana's first congressional district and the house majority whip. Steve Scalise Mr.. Scully's welcome to the program sham. Great to be with you. Congratulations. And hopefully this this launches you into, you're going to be like a household name all across the country. Let's hope so. Welcome to off-message. I'm Tim Alberta. It's a real privilege to take over the hosting duties for this podcast, and I promise I won't screw up too badly as the chief political correspondent. For politico magazine. I am tasked with writing deep nuanced unhurried feature stories and to do that. I have lots of deep new. Onced unhurried conversations with sources and subjects along the way. Some of the salty language in sports Gosper side. I'm confident that those interviews will translate nicely to this new medium and don't worry. We'll try to keep the f. bombs and box scores to a bare minimum. Ultimately, it's my hope to broaden the mission of off message and take these conversations in a new direction focusing not just on the newsmakers themselves, but on the people who elect them Washington is hopelessly disconnected from the rest of America. And one way to bridge that gap is to make sure we're listening to voters, not just talking to them. Stay tuned for more on that front for now. However, with just weeks until the mid term elections, a potential pivot point for the country politically. And otherwise I wanted to bring you an interview with someone who's future hinges on the results of November. The sixth, someone who has become a household name for reasons they never expected and someone who could potentially become the next speaker of the house that someone is congressman, Steve Scalise. It's. A bit of an ironic beginning to my off message tenure as Scalise is quite possibly the most on message politician. I have ever covered someone who's every word is wrapped in caution and calculation. That's especially true these days having a stabbed himself as a top Lieutenant in Donald Trump's Republican party and with a potential promotion looming after the midterm elections Scalise can't afford to alienate any Republicans on either end of Pennsylvania Avenue. I, I got to know Scalise lease in two thousand twelve when he won an upset victory to become chairman of the Republican study committee, which for decades had served as home base for the conservative movement on Capitol Hill that is before the line house, freedom caucus spun off into a smaller more ideologically charged unit. I will never forget a member of then speaker, John bainer staff predicting to me back then that Scalise would end up climbing his way into the House Republican leadership ranks. It wasn't that Scalise was the sharpest policy mind or the smoothest talker or the most telegenic fellow on Capitol Hill. What made him stand out was his organization and his discipline and sure enough within a few years Scalise was elected, majority whip. The third ranking member of the House Republican leadership with speaker Paul, Ryan now retiring Scalise is poised to move into the position of majority leader. And if Kevin McCarthy can't corral the votes needed to replace Ryan Scalise will be the odds on favourite to become the speaker of the house. That is, if Republicans can keep the house majority a dubious proposition at best. Of course, Steve Scalise is noteworthy for other reasons. He was nearly killed last summer when a gunman opened fire at the Republican congressional baseball teams practice hemorrhaging so much blood that doctors believed he was within moments of death when he arrived at the hospital after months of surgeries and physical therapy and grueling rehabilitation, ska lease received a hero's, welcome last September when he returned to Capitol Hill for the first time. It was one of the few feel good moments we've had in Washington in recent years. I sat down with Scalise in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he was set to headline of fundraiser for one of his fellow members of congress. I wanted to start our conversation by talking about his continued recovery from the shooting, but there was a more timely matter he wanted to discuss. So we were just talking about drew Brees quarterback for your.

They're going to find a way to deny it to you and anybody that they can and they're not above using violence and threats to do. So. In wyoming. A Republican office was set on fire less than two days. After opening police say it was intentional Steve Scalise who was shot at a baseball practice, a member of congress, deranged leftist from Illinois angry that Trump had been elected came and shot up the baseball practice. Police was seriously injured took a long time to recover. He is out saying the political left needs to do a better job of policing its members who are inciting violence. It's a nice sentiment, but asking people like Chuck Schumer or or Nancy Pelosi or any of these other people to rein in s you want. You can rain in Maxine Waters. Asking them to rein in there. They're scared of him. He's Democrats are scared to death. But the it's worse than that. They don't want to rein them in Pelosi doesn't wanna rain these people in congressman Scalise. They're happy to live with the results in the outcome of this. They may give lip service. I don't think they do that. I don't think they give lip service to disapproving of this man with switchblade ramping about Trump attempts to stab Republican candidate running against Representative swale. Well, this is in Castro valley, California, Eric's wall is the democrat on TV a lot. They Republican opponent was attacked by guy with a switchblade switchblade malfunctioned or else they Republican candidate would have been stabbed. These incidents are not becoming rare are one off they are becoming comedy. You'll see any outrage at all for any of it expressed anywhere in the mainstream media.
