"Is in the house on america. First and way back with press secretary extraordinaire. Sean spicer short time in the white house. What kind of a ryan that was for you. We played this clip at the this insanity. Why didn't you mentioned this. You mean the thing. I talked about two days ago from this put. Money didn't tweet about the sharing insanity. Talk to us about what that was like to live through. And then give us your take on on what went wrong in the trump. What went right. What went so. I mean look. It was tumultuous. It was intense. I think that look this goes back to what we were just talking about. Trump upset the apple cart and every president both parties that come in need three groups right. You need the press. You need donors and you need sort of the permanent k street lobbyists types trump's view was if you want to join the great but i need you to and what happened was let's see one without them. Yes and they were put. But here's the thing. I'll say in a very pg way but like there used to have in their but kissed and they're used to people saying. I love to have you come over to my house in georgetown for dinner party. The ins and outs of the nato. It's like they want you to. You know he was like look. I'm doing this. i'm doing it this way. If you want to join me. Great but i don't need you. Pissed them off the especially the conservatives who sought that they were. You know the bill kristol's of the was. What do you mean you're not coming to me for a briefing. How you how do you. How dare you sufficient. I come with the drapes. And i think that that was upset. And especially for the press corps and that was their thing is that they were like. You're supposed to do this. You're supposed to act this way and again my my sort of marching orders from trump horse do debt. My message out do what. I want to be honest. I'm not sure on the good measure of this. Because if i'd had your job i would have. I would have been a flame thrower in i would have derided the mall Any lessons learned for you from the god. What would you have done it the same way. No i mean there's no look i would back this up. Say i live my life every day personally and professionally reflecting on what i've done did i do. I mean it could be an interaction with you where i go. What did i say hello earlier today. That guy that just walked it was noted how you become a better person professionally and reflection reflection so i look back and i saw a clip like that and they were trying to get my ira. They were trying to get my irish going and there are days when i was like you know what. I should've just laugh at them. Like you know what we talked about. So there's there's a couple of moments like that. There's some things that. I wish i'd set are done differently of course but generally speaking. I think it was fun to be part of a historic moment. in time where we did break norms. We did do things differently. We didn't have to abide by the tradition of everything and trump allowed us to break glass. And and i mean some days. I broke class and shattered everywhere. Need hold us accountable. People ask me all the time you know what's he is. He's a tough guy worked for but he holds you accountable and like your point earlier. You'd better not come at them with like well because we used to do it. So but but it's intense it's tumultuous but it's also exciting and rewarding okay and and what went wrong What what is the biggest take home for the for the four years and how much of the loss loss was really down to covert and eighty million ballots show. I think what went wrong in the white house simply put is trump was a newcomer to politics right. You think about you mentioned all these people governors and military leaders whatever they come with a trove of supporters or loyalists wherever you know lobbyists or whatever donor. Trump didn't have that so he comes in and he's like pulling a guy like me and then gary cohen for national economic advisor steven mnuchin for secretary of treasury. Dan savino with him to run social me. Okay all talented individuals. But it's like a baseball team. Y'all get thrown on the field. You've never played together. You kind of like okay. Who's got what position. So there's some growing pains number one number two. There's some people that should have never been there three they're disloyal people that should have never been there activators. Yes and so. I think that when you're walking into an environment like that and your focus should be forward and yet you've gotta constantly checking your six. You're going that that makes it difficult. I think that one of the biggest lessons learned for trump is if he ran again in one. I think he would start with a better team. That he knew of his agenda understood what was at stake too. Many people in that administration didn't understand that it was trump's agenda not theirs and i just didn't about the gender right sure fair enough obsolete yuck can kill it so that was the thing is there are too many times or during my tenure. I pick up the phone and big guys. What don't you get no. He said ax give him x. Don't do like h in jay and that too often they. Well what we're going to sell them on is like no no no he seventy four. He's been in business. I mean like he knows what he wants. He's not here to be sold. And you're not going to change him. I remember i mean you're the guy. But i remember being us numerous times on camera. So what would you say to the president about this tweet. Oh that tweet i. I'm not gonna tell him anything after fourteen years of the most successful reality. tv show. You're not telling a seventy four year old how to communicate differently. Sean can maybe do that. But but but but he's not going to that was. That was my response..

"sean spicer" Discussed on America First with Sebastian Gorka Podcast
"Is america. First and here's your host. Dr sebastian gorka. Welcome back to one. On one with my good france sean spicer. So let's finish this story how you got fascinating career. Transitioning from asia studies japanese into politics running campaigns. How'd you end up in the white house. Working the president so i i was mobile ice in the navy from two thousand eight to two thousand eleven. I got off active duty in basically january. Two thousand eleven. I went on terminal leave. And so i was looking for the next professional move My wife and i wanna start a family. We didn't really think politics anymore was the right. You know the most stable and conducive to to raise kids and so i was looking for some corporate stuff and a mentor. My said there's this. New chairman of the rnc has just been elected. Would you guys should talk. We met we hit it off. My wife was like look. This is probably what you want to go to the national party. Sort of like the major leagues and she understood how important that wasn't said okay. It's a two year gig. Go for well. We finished the first two years and we really wanted to change the party and make some Some huge changes in how we did business meaning. We wanted to shift away from all adds get more into a data specific model where we helped candidates up and down the ballot reform. The primary system reform the debate processing systems. We stuck around for two more years. That made it four. We did very well in the midterms. And then you not sticking around for presidential as sort of like walking out for the super bowl and so again. I look my is literally my god. It's now going with my six year so we did it and you know. I led the debate process in two thousand sixteen and got all the candidates. I mean don't let the debate arosa in the in the past up until two thousand sixteen. Both parties had no say in their debate process. None so if you saw a debate between republican candidates who are democratic candidates. They had nothing in two thousand twelve when rights and i were at the rnc when we went to debate we had to ask. Abc news cnn. Could we please have two tickets up. We'd like to attend the today and they'd be like for your parties debate when i say this is wrong. The idea to get to that point. It has never changed because news media organizations done announcing debate and then everyone would go. And i started saying to myself. Why are these. Left-wing hogan dictating our schedule right and the question so we made some reform one. We limited the schedule to. We made them geographically because candidates. The two most important things for candidate are their time their money and so if they knew where the schedule was. Okay the first ones in new hampshire at this day and the second one is they can plan accordingly. They're not wasting because what was happening in two thousand twelve. Abc had announced a debate on like a friday saturday. Night in new hampshire and then nbc had it on a sunday so they were like you know i'm going. What are you debating road. So i thought that this made sense for the party. I led that effort. I am a firm believer that the party is like a league. You don't choose among your team. You just want a good season. You want the best team to emerge as the champion that so not. Everyone agreed with me on that. Because of that i got to know all the candidates and their teams and trump became the front runner. I dealt a lot with his campaign about you. Know the his his issues with debate the format. Why because he was more media savvy yet but because he had never done it before so he was he'd be okay. Why am i here. How do we figure this out. Why can't i do that and so we would. Some of it was and then some of our demands. I'm going to do this. You better figure that out. So i got to know him and his team. And and then when he won the indiana primary we faced off as i think every candidate does where you can sit down with the nominee. The differences trump didn't have this big robust bureaucratic and to some extent campaign apparatus. He was him a twitter account and a handful of loyal people. So when we first met and we were kind of trading what we had. I was like okay. I have like seventy five people that work for me in. Dc and another two hundred in the field and their comms team was like four people. And it's it was just. It was because he drove it and so we sync up in a way that had never happened. He's telling people. Have mitt romney in one in two thousand twelve. I would have been the deputy undersecretary for communications at hud. Which i'm sure is a very good job. I'm sure but that's that's what happens. You in the rnc or the dnc or the jv teams like you get the jersey right. You go to the pizza party but you're not starting so so. Did you connect through that process. Did you personally connect with them. And so when when he became the nominee it was actually a call in august. Steve bannon kellyanne called me one night. They're both on the phone and they said hey tomorrow it's going to be announced that we're taking over and we need you come up to you over the camp and and so we negotiated a deal where i spend most of my time in new york working with the campaign. And what was your official position. Then now i still was the chief strategist for the party. Okay but but what we did is but he was now the candidate candidate so i basically moved up to new york and worked out of trump tower and look on december twenty second he had one obviously november and then he calls me on december twenty seconds. Okay let's do this. Put up the release. And i was like that was it and i think to be honest and straight with people. I'd love to say that we had like a thousand people in the resume process and he was interviewing people but i think there was a very limited number of people that had earned his trust that had experience and in one of the job. And and so you know that was it and then via would all went from there. We'll talk about what happened inside. The building of the book is radical nation. It follows leading america and of the briefing but the new book is radical nation. Sean tell us give us your take on what happened in twenty sixteen Former colleague friend of mine. Mike flynn called it a peaceful resolution. Revolution i i find it amusing as as an immigrant than i like to remind my fellow americans. The first time in the republic's history that we elected president a man who wasn't a politician and wasn't a retired general from washington obama. every single. President was senator congressman galvano or retired general eisenhower washington. Something big happening twenty sixteen. What is twenty sixteen represent to you politically not not not individuals but framework now. I think it's the first time that the american people feel like they had their voice heard in a way that it had what trump got and still gets today. Frankly is an understanding of what people feel. Government isn't doing to them and how these policies affect them and you know the one thing..

"And saying okay. How do we win this. How do we win this marketing war if you will and anyway. So that's that's that. And then say lovey. I joined the navy as you asked about in twenty nine years. Old i got commissioned very late as we had a family history. My grandfather was a medal of honor recipient. He had served in the navy groping. And you you see it a lot. And i just wanted to serve and i wanted something bigger than me. We didn't have fraternities at my college. But i always felt like in politics. You're fighting for your side right. You're you're which is great. You're involved in the process but you're not serving the country in the same way i again. I think it is servants. Because you're fighting for the for the values and the policies that the country will live under. So i think there is a degree of service but i wanted a higher calling in the thing about the navy was there was something about knowing that like you were part of something bigger than yourself or a party so i joined it.

News was pretty profound. There was something that happened this weekend. I don't know why it just really put it really sort of pointed up. The contrast i think between what we've seen from biden and the white house over the past few months or so and what we had with. President trump is this picture with president trump. on nine eleven. He chose to spend with the police officers and fire department of new york. And just really look at that picture. Something about that photo of him drink there. I don't know what it is.

It's important to point out that sean has served in our military has warned the uniform. He is a proud navy.

"These bodies have been free from politics and worked in a bipartisan way. Until today, This administration made them political. Not one Obama appointee on these boards was removed. When Trump came in, not a single one. This move has taken partisanship to a new level. Beyond me. You want to know While some of those people are that got the letter that says that they might not be qualified. Former Army vice chief of General Jack Keane, former Pentagon senior advisor Douglas MacGregor, U S Army North commander, Lieutenant General Guy Swan, the third West Point graduate, David Urban. And then Oh, there's Lieutenant General H. R. McMaster, who fun fact was fired from the Board of West Point at six p.m. today and will on this Saturday, September, 11th received the highest honor West point Instils on its graduates a little ironic. Got to admit that's good from Sean Spicer. That's good from Sean Spicer. Because we all know it's silliness. We all know it's nonsense. These board appointments are the biggest things in the world. It's not necessarily indicative of how the military has run. Right now, The military has run pretty poorly. Great soldiers, bad leadership. The wilderness and everything else. But to remove these people is just It's just Biden being Biden, Not a nice guy has no interest in quote unquote norms. And is looking for something. What? That something is. I have no idea. Now. I argue that the president can remove anybody in any time. It's not my argument president to remove anybody at any time. But it's the purpose of the removal.

House delivers Trump impeachment article to Senate, setting stage for trial
"The second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump is underway after House managers delivered the article of impeachment to the U. S Senate Monday evening, charging him with incitement of insurrection over the deadly attack on the U. S. Capitol, Donald John Trump engaged in high crimes and misdemeanors. By inciting violence against the government of the United States. Maryland Democratic Congressman Jamie Raskin serving his house impeachment manager and reading the charge on the Senate floor, But the trial won't begin in earnest for another few weeks, a pause allowing more time for preparation. Some Republicans say it shouldn't be happening at all. Now that he's out of office. This can happen. Anytime of political party has a majority. And there's no time limit. There's no statute of limitations. That would mean that the new precedent set is that next time Republicans were in power they could reach back and impeach a former Democratic president, Texas Senator John Cornyn, also taking issue with the push to prevent Trump from ever seeking office again if convicted by the Senate. But Democrats say the former president must be held accountable and the trial will move forward even is President Biden tries to accelerate the fight against Cove it and find common ground on more covert relief open to changes in his proposed package. I prefer these things to be bipartisan, because I'm trying to generate some Census and take sort of the How can I say it vitriol out of all of this, But he's already suggesting that just because of Bill passes along party lines doesn't mean there isn't unity. In addition to being a source of friction, the impeachment trial will take time and conviction would take much more than a party line vote in the divided chamber days after January. 6th. It did look like there was no mentum. Among Republican senators to convict President Trump. John Roberts is co anchor of America reports on the Fox News Channel. The White House was concerned that the numbers could be high enough for their actually to be a conviction. Which would have meant that 17 Republican senators would have had to vote in favor of convicting President Trump. But since then, the mo mentum toward a conviction among Republicans has waned to a large degree, and now the momentum is actually swinging the other way. Pendulum has now moved toward declaring this process to be unconstitutional. This idea of holding a Senate trial for a president who is no longer in office and adding to that is this idea that the chief justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts, will no longer be presiding over the trial that will now fall to the Senate. President Pro TEM Senator Pat Leahy from Vermont, all of which taken together adds to this growing idea in the Republican Party that this is an illegitimate process that this is being done on Lee for political reasons. It's on Lee being done to punish President Trump and really doesn't hold any validity in terms of whether or not President Trump will continue to hold office. What about the big picture here? And the political calculus for Mitch McConnell, who's now the Senate minority leader again? Um, because some analysts have pointed out that he seems to be treating this impeachment differently than the last one. You know, as if he feels it's more credible or at least that's how it seemed initially. Um are they reading too much into that? Or is he you know, does he have sort of an ulterior? Agenda here. Mitch McConnell was going further than I've ever seen him before, in terms of what might happen if there were to be a in impeachment trial in the Senate, suggesting that he was really trying to make a break and President Trump But in the days that followed that, really now, the weeks that followed that McConnell seems to be taking a different tack. I have been told by sources in Congress that McConnell, Maybe one of the people whose coalescing around this idea that this is impeachment trial is not constitutional. I don't want to say that he thinks it's a legitimate but not constitutional, and that the president has already left office. I think there's been a bit of a change in position for Mitch McConnell. What about pressure on the new president to sort of not interfere and let this trial happen? However, the Senate wants that to happen. Because it's clearly been at least slow down portions of his agenda just as he's trying to do as much as he can as fast as he can. Right. There's no question that a Senate trial Is going to affect Joe Biden's agenda and how quickly he gets his confirmations die. How quickly he could get some of his signature legislation through that, said Joe Biden is a you know an alumnus understand it. He knows that the Senate Act is an independent body. It's been said that there are 100 presidents that inhabit the Senate. I mean, clearly they are of their own minds. So for a president to say, Well, this is how I think the Senate should do. It is not gonna fly very well on Capitol Hill. So is a student as an alumnus. Understand it. Biden. I think his wisely stepping back to say, Look, this is your deal. You handle it. You handle it The way you will atone east in the public statements. I wouldn't be surprised if behind the scenes in private. He is raising some concerns about what might happen in the next few weeks in the Senate, but but clearly he's he's taking a step back to say. San. It's an independent body. I'm not about to tell them what to do, because if he were, he would likely get some blowback from them, and he definitely needs to send it if he wants to get his agenda troop I know you've covered the White House for a long time help big of a contrast is the start of this administration compared to the start of the Trump administration. Yeah, it's markedly different from from from out of the gate with the Trump administration. We were going 100 Miles an hour on the roller coaster and that never stopped. Even if you look to the very first briefing was Sean Spicer, where Spicer came out and and ripped the press for allegedly lying about the numbers of people who went to the inauguration all the way up until the last press conference from Keighley back in it, they were contentious, combative affairs. That really sort of was the hallmark of the Trump administration that it was a contentious, combative administration. This administration is much more located. Briefings are cordial. I don't want to say they're collegial, but they're definitely cordial, even though I think Jen Psaki is getting some more pointed questions, and she wasn't the first couple of great things, and I think that that's the way that this administration is going to progress. It will be a kind of a Let's get business done type of administration, as opposed to this grand show that President Trump in that shed, though I think that Joe Biden does face some headwinds in terms of getting his agenda through because he is beset with a number of different crises, and now he owns them. He's the president.

He will preview President Biden's inauguration plans and in 805 Steve Moore will join us and we'll discuss the president's economic legacy with Steve. I'm Mary Walter here with Vince Colonies. Good morning. Good morning to you the president's legacy. Let's look back over these four years. Get your thoughts on What is his legacy? What of the things that you appreciate about the last four years? And what will you remember what would be your favorite memories from a deeply unusual presidency in American history? A lot of huge moments throughout it. What were the ones you recall 886309625888630? W m A L. President last night, giving an address talking about the last four years. He releases this video farewell address from inside the White House. Here's a piece of what the president had to say last night. My fellow Americans. Four years ago, we launched a great national effort to rebuild our country to renew its spirit and to restore the allegiance of this government to its citizens. In short, we embarked on a mission to make America great again. We're all Americans. As I conclude my term as the 45th, president of the United States, I stand before you truly proud of what we have achieved together. We did what we came here to do. And so much more. This week, we inaugurate a new administration. And pray for its success in keeping America safe and prosperous. Yeah, this president, the United States and he went on. For some. I believe 20 minutes or so. Throughout that speech, just ticking off all of the things that he was able to accomplish. In the four years he was given marries. You Look back on these four years. What is it? Some of the things that you recall fondly? Oh, wow, There's there's so much I you know the whole idea of Americans being first again in our own country. To me was so refreshing and and something that needed to be said, and something that a lot of people were clamoring for. I think a lot of Americans felt taken advantage of and felt that they were second class citizens, and then you know how many times have I said What's the point of being a citizen? The only thing I get to do is vote and you know, even then, in some instances, in a lot of instances, people feel you can vote and not even be a citizen, right. You get a get a ballot to your home. Sure, All vote didn't know anything any different. So I think Americans felt taken advantage of in their own country and felt not represented and that they didn't have a voice and President Trump came along, and he was that voice and he promised to be that voice and not only did he promise, but he did it. President Trump was that rare Rare president who was not a politician and who actually did what he said he was going to do, and that to me was so refreshing whether whether you liked what he said he was going to do or you disliked what he said he was going to do. He did what he said he was going to do. There was no BS, and I appreciated that. And I actually Felt like my voice mattered. Even it was only for four years, my voice that I actually had a voice in Washington. Yeah, the America first thinking is interesting because it definitely think shifted the way a lot of people whether or not you like Trump's think about the country because for so many years America just because of his success had started to get over it, skis and in terms of the types of activities we would do around the world, And why did it have happening was we started ignoring our own people. And their own suffering. So can you run a household? And one of your Children is starving. You don't go adopt another child. That's not the right moment for that, like maybe get the kids said, And then you could start expanding on your ambitions. And America had been doing this thing where we were adopting other people's problems and not addressing the ones that were occurring at home. And at least from that, In that way, Trump was really good at helping us recalibrate our thinking. Recalibrating our thinking around China. It boy talk about a total sea change to the way we think about China. And its relationship to the United States and what costs exist from the way that we've maintained that relationship over the last two decades, especially, um, he forced back to the forefront, and that's not going anywhere. No matter what the Biden administration does with it. A lot of Americans were thinking much more sincerely and deeply about that issue now. All right. Your reactions 8886309625888630. W m a l Roger, Let's get Rato and hear from Potomac, Maryland. Roger. Good morning. Morning.

But we have because so many people are tuning in both online and through their cable providers. You've got now CNN out there lobbying cable providers, which by the way their parent company he owns to direct TV and Time Warner. So let's be honest. They know what they're doing here. They're trying to lobby to get us taken off of these platforms. Because, frankly, we pose a threat. We are now the fourth largest cable provider, cable news outlet in the country and growing and I think CNN is making sure that they do their best to try to create a culture where these big corporate titans that different outlets rising or whatever, 18 T take us down so By tuning in, you're helping us give a voice and make sure that they know that they can't do it because there's too big of an audience and hopefully but that that works because what we're seeing now is discussing these folks who have rallied against state TV quote unquote are not trying to squelch the competition.

What If Trump Refuses to Concede?
"Lawrence Douglas era professor of law at Amherst. College Massachusetts you write for The Guardian and you've published a book called Donald Trump will he go about whether the president would actually step down if he loses. Interestingly. The rhetoric we're hearing now is an knew he was working from the same script in two, thousand and sixty, I can promise and pledge. To all of my voters and supporters. And to all of the people of the United States. Then I will totally accept. The results of this, great and historic. Presidential election. If I win. The remaining. When you started worrying about what you're hearing? will extinct many Americans pretty gobsmacked by the last presidential debate that he conducted with Hillary Clinton. Chris Wallace said, will you accept the results? No matter. What do you make the same until you will absolutely sir that you will. Accept the result of this election and I think trump just kinda refused to admit I will look at it at the I'm not looking at anything now I look at it at the time, and then for swallowed pushed him a little harder in that and trump threatened the tourist the answer I will tell you at the time I'll keep you in suspense. I remember watching that in gang Wow that's an astonishing thing to hear the candidate of a major party say and I have to say at the time I also thought, wow, he's finished. You cannot. You cannot refuse to accept electoral results match just kind of attacking norms of constitutional democracy. So I kind of thought at the time that he was. His own coffin shot. A so much for my prognostications, but even when he won they theme continued from him didn't it guess it did in fact, right after his election I actually started writing as a contributing opinion writer to the garden in the very first piece I wrote was about his claim that he had in fact won the popular vote as well except for the fact that there were these three to five million phantom illegal voters he stated that before I think he stated his concerns of voter fraud and and People voting illegally during the campaign, and he continues to maintain that belief based on studies and evidence that people have to him. Press Secretary Sean Spicer doubling down on the president's claim, but repeatedly unable to point to evidence that backs up the charge that has been debunked by Republicans and Democrats alike, and in this piece that route from the garden I really tried to ask what are the politics behind it claim like that I mean not only did he threaten dispute the outcome of the election if? He lost his disputing the outcome of an election that he want. But if in four years time, he trotted out a similar type of argument not to for the purposes of challenging his loss in the popular vote. But challenging his lost the Electoral College vote The damage this system should be hard to exaggerate. Okay. Say Things feel quite different this time because in the run up to this election, he basically got asked that same question again didn't he and he responded similarly you commit to making. Sure. That there's a peaceful transfer of power after the election going to have to see what happens. You know that I've been complaining very strongly about the ballots and the ballots are a disaster. We WanNa make sure the election is honest and I'm not sure that it can be i. don't I. Don't know that it can be on top of that. He's a lot to say about the workings of the election itself what is his argument and how much does it change now that he's the incumbent president Well. For one thing, he has spent the last three and a half years telling the American people that our electoral system is unreliable, which again is kind of unprecedented act in American history and what trump has done is he's kind of created this heads I win tails you lose situation in which the only way that the system can demonstrate its legitimacy is if he wins and if he loses well, that's simply becomes proof of what he's been saying all along. We having in yesterday's episode that Donald Trump is really hitting out at the postal system. And in particular state Sir automatically send out mail-in ballots voters. Why politically focusing on this issue There's a particular demographic that we need to pay attention to. These mail in ballots a recent poll indicated I. think that around twenty to twenty, five percent of. Trump's supporters intend to vote by mail in pallets that compares to about fifty five to sixty percent of Biden voters who are going to vote Mallon ballot. So we can see that trump is kinda tactically trying to discredit votes that are gonNA, break against him and very, very unfair to our country. If, they do this, our country will be a laughing stock all over the world because everyone knows it doesn't work how many ballots is sending in California's exit twenty, eight million or some massive number. Other states are sending out millions and millions of ballots I don't WanNa. See a crooked election. This election will be the most rigged election and history

"And how if they really cared about ratings, they would have more of us represented on their shows. Yeah, I'm glad you brought that up. It is funny because the first time I appeared on Kim will show the Rays came out afterwards. And I say that this is not about me and the first guy in the Trump world go out, So this isn't It's more about the fact that they probably won't see a conservative voice. We've gotten Kimmel highest ratings in quite some time. He actually beat Fallon that week, and there was this heist and it's in the book, but I think it's in the previous quarter. And yet you would think if your producer on that show you think yourself, Okay, we probably the more conservative voices. And yet, think about late night. When was the last time the other night that was less than they ever had someone from other Republican on the show they don't invite the other night. I saw Lindsay grants Challenger on. I think it was either foul intercept Myers or something. Or Kimmel and thinking right when that political challengers ever been on late night, But he's gotten so bad late night. Television is now just sort of like a Sunday morning. Political talk show, but later at night? Yeah, Yeah, You're absolutely right. And it frustrates so many of us and by the way, I just want to point out s O that nobody mistakes the content of this book. It's leading America. This is not about Sean Spicer in Hollywood. There's really two chapters about that. The rest is about very listen. I think that's important. Anyone who listens. This show knows that that's important to me. On the intersection of politics and pop culture. But your first chapter, the battle for the soul of America really does lay out an incredibly important thesis about where we are right now. We are at a crossroads here, Sean and and and we can't fool ourselves into thinking that this election through Now is not about fundamental existential aspects of our constitutional Republican. You do make that case as well. Yeah, I mean, it's part of it is to look at Hollywood to look in corporate America to look at journalism to look at education and understand where society's right now, because the amount of research that I did in the book, I had my own Ah ha moments, and I hope leaders do to where, when you realize and and the whole section education Larry, There's a lot of examples from right here in the DMV. That deal with what's going on in public schools. What teachers air teaching what part of the curriculum and I guarantee you that there's a lot of parents had assumed that when they send their kids off to school, you know they're just focused on learning science and math and meeting when you start to look at some of the courses in some of the things that are being taught In this area. You go to yourself. You've got to be kidding me. I got to go talk to my kid. I've got to find out, you know, looking, and I was just amazed they can't understand you researching for the book. I kept saying, no, There's no way that this is being taught in a K through 12 school, and in many cases, 4th and 5th grade. Yep. Well, and it tells you why we talk about this stuff a lot, because no matter who wins the election, and God knows we have a vested interest in all of us Dio. There are other elections going on that we need to focus on as well. That's why we talk about school board. That's why we talk about City Council County supervisor. If we really do care about the future for our Children, it goes well beyond just the presidential election every four years. Absolutely. And I think that part of it is for folks on the right. You need to be armed with the facts. And part of the reason of the book is to give people an understanding as to like, not just to be ableto wine and say this is unfair or whatever, but also each chapter. I try to incorporate some way in which people on the right are winning. If you will write so in the chapter in Hollywood, I talk about This movie, this sort of crowdfunded Siri's called the chosen where people went. Instead of trying to figure out how to get funding in Hollywood. Do they know for The series that families could watch. That's all about the teaching of the gospel. They went out on Crowdsource, and we're the highest crowdsource funding. You know projects in entertainment history and they put it out there and people are gobbling up because there's a there is a home for it. It's just that Hollywood doesn't want to be part of that. We're gonna leave it there sadly but will sleep with you again before the election. Congratulations on the book. It speaks to a lot of the things that we talk about here and are concerned about it as you said, Hollywood education, pop culture and oh, by the way, the media Sean Spicer has pointed to say about journalists benefit and it's Amazon Prime Day. So if you go on Amazon, you're looking for that gift. Just Goto search Sean Spicer book and there you go. I don't think he had a deal. But you know you're already on Amazon. You might as well look at him Go leading America. President Trump's commitment of people, patriotism and capitalism. Thank you, Shawn. Great to talk with him. Thanks, Larry.

2nd presidential debate in doubt after Trump balks at virtual format
"Of next Thursday. Second scheduled presidential debate is up in the air after President Trump said this morning he will not take part in a virtual debate. Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer tells Arizona's morning news. A virtual debate would be a disservice to voters having a candidate's behind a camera there Campaign headquarters or the White House. The president's case where you don't know how many people are studying them. Shooting and notes are answers or putting stuff up on the screen is not a debate. I mean, that's a TV interview. The Trump campaign has agreed to the Biden campaigns request to delay the second debate to October 22nd. Meanwhile, the Trump campaign is requesting the third debate beheld October 29th five days before the election.

Mr Bolton on National Security Director of former National Security Adviser is writing a book and he's kissing and county and I thought it was outrageous wins this morning. Sean Spicer part of the inner circle of President Trump's team and good morning Sean. How are you? One John Happy Sunday to you. Thank you. How outrageous is it for national security director to kiss and tell honest president whether it's true, not true. Is it relative the print the book like that I think he has done irreparable harm to not just the nation, but to the institution, and I'll tell you why number one by revealing these things to the president as you point out whether they're true. True or not, because he reveals adversaries China and Russia in particular his thinking, or what he believes his thinking is, that's giving them a strategic advantage when they negotiate with the United States and this president, and that in itself is a huge problem number. Two is I. Think the fundamental Rozhin of the trust that now will go on to not just this president book. Book potentially any future president thinking the idea of national security advisor, being able to give honest and straightforward advice, but more so help the president come to and understanding of key issues and decisions, if that President now believes that the person may or may not be taking those to write a subsequent book, that's a big problem with John Bolton has done as I said it's. It's not only caused short-term damage to our country potentially, but long term damage the institution, and that is something that I sort of unbelievably bewildered that anyone would do, but furthermore I'm outraged that the media has not called him on this and then sort of instead really welcomed it because they are so to get this president that they're willing to look the other way. To anything that is negative, ah especially the president's immediate staff, and the positionally national security adviser how what President never trust the I I mean. has this happened before I don't think I mean I can't think of an instance where somebody this close to the president has tried to tell level of detail and thinking while somebody's in office and like you said I I think this. This is just a massive erosion of trust. You Know I. Think we'll. We'll potentially you know not just. Be Limited to this administration, but the future administrations and do it over a book over money I mean well. What does he accomplished? That's that's what you gotta wonder. You know the funny thing is we've seen it. not this extent, but from other people in the trump administration. You know notably. Sims, when he wrote his book, He'd been taking notes and then went out and sold out to make money and you realize that. This really is causing the question you know whether or not they went into government into the administration with the right intentions. You should be going to these physicians to serve the nation to serve this administration You know I have no problem. I wrote my own book. John but I, but I think there's any question that I. I never did anything that was. Either a you know in the in the realm of providing classified information or doing anything that betrayed the trust of the president, United States and I. I think that's the big thing here when he's individuals do this especially for money it really is sad because these are positions of trust that the tax payers funding, and so when you walk out, and you've use that initial trust to profit, it's really a slap in the face of everybody that that has funded. This position won't Sean. Spicer drinking for coming on Sunday morning, and you feel the way I feel and I'm sure. A lot of Americans feel It's not about being Democrat or Republican A. National Security, it's about the common sense. And I think the Mr Bolton was one hundred ten percent wrong, and the and thank you especially to the American people.

And she's also the host of the popular political podcast primary playlists. She actually interviewed Hillary Clinton and last week. And I'm totally jealous anyway. Emily join me for quick state of the race analysis including a post debate analysis of the first democratic debate following the Iowa Cacus the Iowa caucus the Seattle with a surprising in ever changing results. Yes that Iowa Caucus we also talk about Tuesday's New Hampshire primary and and what's going to happen beyond that. So here's my conversation with Emily Tisch Sussman to sussman. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you so much for having me you know I just realize is yesterday that we're entering the second week of February. It's very new and I need a vacation. I need my summer vacation like yesterday. He because I was thinking through last week Monday was the Caucus Iowa caucus which was chaotic. To say the least following that I think Tuesday was the wildest Steve The union I've ever witnessed my entire life than once they I think was the acquittal Thursday. We had a bit of a break and Friday. I think was the tenth. Democratic debate was at the tenth or the eleventh. Yeah something around that. I am extremely pregnant right now and like the joke that this thing could force me into labor like shocking into into Labor like stopped being funny this week because there were many although the thing that ultimately ended up doing it was when I was worried that Jerry Harris wasn't going to share bat was ultimate. Well you made it. You made it especially to the caucus. So what was your take. What's your take on the Iowa caucus from last week in the state that we're in right now because honestly i? I'm still a bit confused. It is crazy. I mean I've been saying I was at I was at in Iowa for the caucus in two thousand sixteen and was truly leash shocked by the process and the fact that I felt like so many people got left out because they didn't just couldn't have the time or the transportation to be able to show up and participate -ticipant net Last week one of the things that almost shocks me into Labor is that I interviewed Hillary Clinton and she said the process was undemocratic which is actually the farthest this I've ever heard anybody go in describing it and I think that how everybody pretty much feels that way like one of the things that I worry about in the long term as if November is the long-term though when weeks or as long as last week November can feel like long term one of the things that I worry about is that even if trump is loses uses. The electoral college loses the election. He won't step down and he'll question the results of the election and I don't think that that the results also the Iowa caucus if we even have results right now. We finally do and Democratic candidates questioning the results of it. I don't think it helps set a precedent for us to be able to have a peaceful transfer of power if there should be one November. No because you're exactly right because immediately wants to come out about the Iowa Caucus. He jumped on twitter to cast doubt on the whole process. Do you remember that. Said something like old Democrats are in disarray or something. I O caucuses a mess. and He's already casting doubt down on the process. Probably looking for is what's going to happen in November exactly. It's a way to be able to do so doubt from the beginning so that he can essentially control control the outcome because if he controls the entire frame of the narrative which isn't that he's very good at doing then he can get everybody reacts to it so we're no longer just starting from creating our our own framework of like what would normally be considered truth. We're only reacting back and forth to what he says. I'm glad you said that because I've been thinking about that too and I kind of mentioned that every now and again but I still kind of like a conspiratorial list when I talk about the fact that he may not stepped down. He's been hinting at this. Like he tweets out trump twenty twenty four trump eight trump. We know twenty thirty two. I mean he won't be alive that long but I mean but there's always exactly but anyway anyway so you know it's it's it's actually a possibility that we would have to struggle to get him out of office even if he did lose the electoral college in November. I mean it's something that seems totally crazy but these are crazy times and we are not dealing with somebody who is truly grounded in reality when you are only driven by by our own narcissism and and. Apparently the rules don't apply. I feel like everything's on the table. I think one of the biggest impacts of his presidency is that we don't know how to follow up with questions so we we see we've seen this time and time again although there's no longer White House briefings but but it started from day one right from the beginning with Sean. Spicer talking about the crowd. The size of the inauguration that journalists would say well that's wrong. Here's the evidence and whether it's the president or the surrogates would say well no. I'm just sticking to my point. How many times can journalists follow up and say you're factually incorrect? It's right in front of you before they have to just move on right. Exactly I mean I try to follow up on the the lies in that seat of the new address. I mean like Nancy Pelosi the only thing she could have was tearing up the and and let me tell you why I actually think that was so brilliant is the next day. The only conversation was about Nancy Pelosi. Tearing up trump ended up tweeting more about Pelosi tearing bring up the speech than the content of his own speech. Yeah so the Iowa Caucus you know. I think that we have the results. Although I did see something this morning that said that the the Sanders Bernie Sanders was asking for a partial re canvassing of Iowa. And I'm not really sure what that process is but I guess just in short. I don't think that this completely close is an honestly I mean. I don't wanNA sound like trump. I'm not sure how much we can even trust the actual numbers. I'm just not sure I mean. How much do they trust that I mean at this point? What what they have are going back to the paper recordings of tallying up counting? Who is in the room counting? Who moved I mean they're they're combing back through it. I think the thing that has been frustrating to me about the coverage of Iowa is that it's not winner. Take all so who quote wins. Sounds actually doesn't really matter that much it's how many delegates you get out of it. The the reason we care about who wins is because they get a lot out of momentum out of it they they are now seen as electable they can you know bank on fundraising on momentum all of that but that was essentially all negated because of the disaster the function of the caucus So the fact that he and Buddha judge are neck and neck within one delegate in the grand scheme of things one delegate it is likely not GonNa make the biggest difference it feels like they should just move onto the next contest. You know practically it doesn't make a difference but you're right. It does make a difference in terms of momentum and I think that Buddha judge has probably benefited the most from being that close to sanders right. I think that the final count was Buddha. Judge was one delegate ahead of seeing. What's so essentially? You could say claim that he's the winner the winner of the Iowa Caucus which you know as far as like optics are concerned earned. That's really good for him and not the best sanders given given like if you look at the entire context of the primary the news. That's falling Bernie Sanders this week right He had an interview with Chuck. Todd or he talked about you know. He decided that he wasn't going to release his medical records. Right and then James Carville didn't interview where he also also questioned whether it was a smart move for America to select Bernie Sanders as their nominee. Right I mean so I think that Bernie Sanders Sanders needed that push more than Buddha judge at this moment. Well yes I mean I think they both I think they both benefited from it. A lot because sanders entire argument has been Ed. I am electable because I will turn out new voters. I will expand the electorate. I will bring out people who don't normally vote and because because the turn out is actually less than two thousand eight and a little bit above where it was in two thousand sixteen. That argument looks like it fell a little bit flat that it may not be true wasn't like there was this surge of new people coming in Buda judge I think benefits from it. I actually think they both benefit equally. I don't think it really matters who at this point is named like the quote winner. Because I think the whole thing just looks like maths to be honest with you and I think it's why people care about New Hampshire so much but I think that the reason that that Buddha judge got a big bump from it is really the Buddha Judge Biden narrative that it's such a huge contrast where Biden's made argument was electability pretty And the fact that booth judge performed so much better than Biden defying define where people thought that he would have been even in the the last couple of polls before that it seemed like he had fallen maybe to third or fourth so the fact that he did so much better I think was the big exciting narrative for him happy. You know. Reporters don't really want to report on something that if it seems like it's supposed to happen it happens like not that exciting but if it seems like it's not supposed to happen search then it's amazing. I mean I think unfortunately the candidate that really got raised in all of this is the fact that Warren came in third. She in this race this she came in third. She will probably come in first or second in New Hampshire. So let's talk about her that way.
Why Is Sean Spicer Still On DWTS?
"All right Sean Spicer who is on dancing with the stars right he was the the spokesperson for Donald Trump and the White House spokesperson for quite some time when Donald Trump became president and they're trying to get this guy off of dance with the stars righties so say with trump people in Hollywood hate trump and they can't get this guy off because the people who who watch the show they all know they can stick it to the Hollywood leads by voting for Sean Spicer and they all get together and keep voting form on the phone or online I can't get this guy off the show and I saw a great headline it says how are we going to be Donald Trump in twenty twenty if we can't get Sean Spicer off of dancing with the stars it's a

Trump can’t win in 2020. But Democrats can lose.
"Our next guest says Donald Trump can't win reelection but the Democrats kratz shirt can lose it so over the weekend some of the President's Republican allies in Congress. There are many wasted no time defending him as pressure builds now over over this impeachment inquiry. I think this whole thing is a sham. I can't believe we're talking about impeaching the president based on an accusation based on hearsay. Look Look Democrats wanted to impeach because Rudy Giuliani talked to a couple of Ukrainians and good luck with that. What do you make of this exchange. Presidents Alinsky says we are almost ready to buy Roy Moore from the United States for defense purposes and president trump replies. I would like you to do us a favor though you just added another word no favor though yesterday in the transcript so that's kind of how that went and with us us for more tonight is Rick Wilson Longtime Florida Man Longtime Republican strategist who is soon following up on his first book. Everything trump touches dies with a new Work Ryan against the devil which is due out in early twenty twenty. It is a thrill to have you as always thank you sir so tonight. I am reminded Sean Spicer danced to Saturday night fever on dancing with the stars and Sebastian Gorka is on board a US government plane with our secretary three of state going to Europe. We saw that selection of trump allies. There's a whole population the people in Washington who think this might be ballgame here. There are a lot of very nervous folks right now and they're thinking that they've tried to hide in the tall grass for a long time they play the Magi game when they have to and they quietly whispered reporters. I'm really concerned. My Brow is furrowed. I'm deeply deeply troubled and they understand that there's a point where you can't can't just keep pretending and we're rapidly reaching the point where you can't just keep pretending and you know what was bill bar doing in Italy. Why are they making. These phone calls to Australia. We want more the details about Ukraine Gorkhas probably in Europe pitching fish oil tablets or whatever it is he does for a living now but these guys are all of the peace there this flotsam watson around trump so many involved in this and I hope they're all tonight pondering second mortgages so they can lawyer up. Can you imagine what it feels like for the Aussies as a lover and appreciator of history there we were side by side on the beaches of Normandy what we want from them now a little information so help us help us blackmail a competitor in a political election the US they're trying to extort foreign powers by using the Awesome Awesome Majesty of the President's Office and the powers of the United States government trying to extreme. It's just it's the lowest level thug behavior. I have a dramatic reading from the twitter account of Jonathan Martin with New York Times. It's about politics and you're political party. The squeeze is on Republicans left in high income congressional districts and states here is college plus Weitz. I just love how demographers instantly reduce entire groups of Americans against forty six percent already for impeach and remove fifty two percent for the inquiry fifty-seven percent believe trump thinks he's above the law just one percent percent fewer believe he abuses the power of his office fifty one percent believe he's committed crimes as president so you start thinking wow the Republicans should be very nervous us then. I look at Rick Wilson. Down and trump can't win reelection but the Democrats can certainly lose it. It's an old problem explain. The Democrats crafts have a great gift for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory unless they have generational candidates who are who are who have phenomenal skills they had to in our lifetime they had Barack Obama and they had Bill Clinton who are both naturally gifted political figures. They understand how to connect with people. They have charisma for days. None none of the current field reaches that level of performance and I think the danger that I've seen coming at the at the Democratic Party for a long time. Now is a lot of them. I'm still believe that this is going to be a referendum about policy. Selections a referendum as all presidents relations are about trump. They are all referendum. All the referendum referendum thought in this election is going to be trump or not trump ex future or wife future. If you want is trump's kicking you in the face until all eternity well well then re elect Donald Trump. If you want to argue about policy your re-electing Donald Trump it's you've got trump hands them right now the opportunity to go after him as a man who is corrupt corrupt who was ineffective and who was who has led this country into a place where the reputation of our president as as as an extortionist and a mercenary when our president tosses tosses out a reference to a civil war right. I think that that is again. This is a way to make a referendum on this man what kind the president in this country other than the unless he's Got Jefferson Davis fantasies wants to go out and have their reputation. Be You know re tweeting and praising somebody nobody who who's threatening a civil war if he doesn't get to operate above the law if he doesn't get to be unaccountable in every way and that this is the kind of thing that trumpism has normalized in our country and it's a great danger. Brian Jeff Flake Consensus Hall of fame furrowed Brow Hall of fame member Concern Concern Face Hall of fame member says to his fellow Republicans is there still time to save your souls others remember flake like as the guy who saved cavanaugh right before skipping town not the best guy to make that argument look I would prefer and there it will be a tremendous first-mover advantage for some seated member of the US Senate right now to make that point and to recognize that Donald Trump will drag every single one of them under and they will drown and die politically if they don't start breaking away. This is the problem that nine hundred seventy three and seventy four caught us in nineteen seventy-three. The Republicans were lockstep on Nixon. If you go back it was all it's a media conspiracy against the president. It's liberal elites against the president well in one thousand nine hundred eighty four the voters of the United States decided that fifty four forty nine Republicans needed to go home forever and that eight members of the Republican Senate needed to go the home forever. This is a political consequence of a corrupt president who abuses power right now donald trump and the thing about Nixon Nixon was not about money. Nixon was not about Personal Game Nixon was in the game because that was his character trump is venal trump wants political power so he can continue can you to enrich himself and his family and this is a category above even Richard Nixon and that takes a lot of doing Rick Wilson a thank you so much this survey serves a pleasure to have you on our

Of course, you know, put non shoe polish to do a rap thing in the eighties is not the same as being a white supremacist group. So you can't lump those together. Really, I'm always a little nervous about having quote, unquote, tie who something because often, you know, somebody who knows somebody who knows somebody who is a white supremacist that sort of thing. But then you have this. Speaking of you know, all that is racially insensitive is not racist. That's another problem with what's going on these days.

"In fact, you describe working in the Trump white houses something like game of thrones with the characters from veep. What's the most absurd incident, you can recall, well, probably my favorite chapter in the entire book is titled the mooch is loose. And that eleven days, you, could you could write an entire TV series off of those, you know, thirty pages in the book because just like just unbelievable stuff that was going on behind the scenes there, the other one that always remember is I get a phone call at like nine thirty at night or something like that a colleague of mine is still at work across the street from the White House in the Eisenhower building where most of the White House staff works, and he said man, I just saw the weirdest thing is I just saw Sean Spicer toting. A mini fridge out of the with the accord like hanging out. Behind him. Like, I don't know. So turns out Sean Spicer's like an argument with some lower level staffers in the Eisenhower building over who was going to get to keep this mini fridge. And he basically hijacked it after they left work one night. And so that's the when I say the characters from veep. That's that's the kind of things I think of and you admit that you had issues with Spicer in a number of other Trump staffers. In fact, you want help to Donald Trump crafters so-called enemies list. But bizarrely it wasn't like Nixon's enemies list, where it was targeting his enemies outside the administration, Trump's lists consisted entirely of enemies from within who was on that list, and or some of them still working in the White House today. Yeah. Well, let me paint a picture for your listeners here. You know, there was is it time early on in the administration when the president was reading a lot of anonymous quotes from White House officials criticizing him and he's looking around. He's saying who are these people? These people supposedly worked for me like who is doing this. And so I basically gave my two cents on on who I thought that the? Those people were and kind of how framed that up was, you know, it was a group of people who abandoned you in the campaign, and then they came into the White House. And now, they're, you know, bailing on you again when time getting times, get hard and saw listed a number of people in there. Whether it be, you know, Sean, Spicer or rights Priebus, and some others that your listeners probably would have never heard of but staffers in various parts of of of the White House who I witnessed in meetings, criticizing Trump in rolling their eyes. And you know, whatever. And in retrospect, it's one of those moments that I regret even though I didn't lie about anyone. I gave my honest assessment. And that kind of thing in retrospect, I I had gotten myself caught up when I say team vipers, you know, there were times when I was a vibrator to and so here, I am creating this enemies list that consists of my colleagues, and I just don't think there is anything honorable about doing that. And so I try to be very open and transparent and honest, if I'm going to talk about other people the president and other staffers, give honest assessments of what I saw. I need to be able to do that about myself as well. And that's one of the moments in the book where I try to do that. Well, I do want to give you credit for that. And I think your willingness to be self critical and open up about your own mistakes. Actually, Lynn's more credibility to your story. You admit that you share part of the blame for some of the administration's more notable blunders is there one that stands out in particular for the one. I remember the most is the first one the first day we were in the White House. Sean Spicer infamously goes out and gives this statement where I says, the Donald Trump had the largest election are Niagara crowd in history, and in that kind of thing, and what people did knows behind the scenes as I.
