Changes in population of Arizona swings state more left

"This is a special edition of Balance of powers. Look at election 2020. I'm David Weston. Today We look at three critical swing states that could help decide who occupied the Oval Office next January. We start with Arizona once solidly Republican state that is now Maura, Va. Toss up. Arizona has 11 electoral votes and polls show a tight race. As for Vice President, Joe Biden hopes to become the first Democrat to win the Grand Canyon state since Bill Clinton did back in 1996. Or an overview. We spoke to Bloomberg contributor Rick Davis, who ran the 2008 presidential campaign of the late Arizona Senator John McCain. Four years ago in 2016. It was not a swing state, so it's one of those that have moved into the Swing column primarily because it changes both demographically in the state, but also ideologically demographically, I think you know, the increase in Hispanic population have moved it a little bit closer to the Democratic column. Hispanics make up almost a third of the Voting population now and on ideologically in 2016 trump one white suburban voters in Maricopa County, the largest county in the state. What really decides the outcome in states and in 2018, those same suburban voters fled the Republican Party, causing Martha McSally running for Election to the Senate to lose a Republican, so it's going to be an interesting ride there, but it's definitely a swing state this year. So if you say Maricopa County is I understand, you know better than I really determines the state. Largely. It's a really big count and a large portion of the voting populace. What has changed 16 4018 has the Democratic nature of Maricopa County's changes it more hetero genius than it was before is that they've changed their attitude towards things like immigration. Maricopa has been changing for a long time is one of those state or one of those counties. It's the city of Phoenix is in Maricopa County that has grown at an enormous rate. It's been one of the top five fastest growing counties in the United States for the last 15 years and is one of the top five of the largest counties in America. So it is a complex political beast. I would say What is starting to change is the Republican lock in the suburbs. In the past, we've been able to win the state by winning Maricopa. And if we are not able hold onto especially white women suburban voters in Maricopa County. We can't win the election for a perspective on what it takes to win statewide office in Arizona. We spoke to someone who's done it. Former Republican governor, Jan brewer. She admits the state is changing, but she hopes it hangs on to its conservative roots. There's a good chance that it is probably turning a little purple hair in Arizona, which is very distressful US Republicans, but the bottom line is is that we've had a lot of people moving in and out of California and other places coming to the great State of Arizona czar demographics. Have really changed. I think that we have to take that all into consideration were out there.

Reporter Jeffrey Goldberg Addresses Trump’s “Loser” Remarks, Talks Using Anonymous Sources

"It has been a rough Labor Day weekend and the trump. White House where officials are absolutely full out freaking out about Thursday. Night's report in the Atlantic that trump had characterized Americans who died in war losers and suckers trump has spent the past four days repeatedly nine the story marshalling all kinds of people to. Come forward to knock it down he insisted today the quote an animal would say thing that the White House trotted out figures like Sarah Sanders who we know is lied to reporters multiple times to claim the report isn't true because they were there when trump didn't say the terrible things he allegedly said take they're hoping you don't think about that formulation too much. The main problem for the White House here is that the evidence supporting the story is pretty obvious and clear and almost overwhelming to anyone not inside the trump reality distortion bubble. The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg reported that trump cancelled a visit to an American military cemetery near Paris back in two thousand eighteen partially because he worried his hair would become disheveled in the rain and partially because he did not respect the American war dead interred there. In a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the schedule visit trump said, why should I go to that cemetery? It's filled with losers in a separate conversation on the same trip trump preferred to the more than eighteen hundred marines who lost their lives at Bellawood as suckers for getting killed. Now, the sources in the story are anonymous you know anonymous sources are not as. Good. As name sources when you're evaluating something, but it doesn't mean that the claims came in on some anonymous tip line that no one knows where they came from. It means a reporter in this case, Jeffrey Goldberg spoke to people directly interviewed them and has agreed not to identify them in the story Jeffrey. Goldberg, will be here with me to talk about that in just a moment. His initial story has now been confirmed in part or in its entirety by reporters at. All okay. Remarkably a correspondent at Fox News included in that lineup whom trump promptly called on the network to fire. Some of those corroborating stories included even more damning details about the president like this one from the Washington Post quote the president told senior advisors that he didn't understand why the US government plays such value on finding soldiers missing in action because they had performed poorly and gotten caught and deserve what they got and this from the New York Times people familiar Mr Trump's private conversations saying he has long scorned those who served in Vietnam as being too dumb to have gotten out of it as he did through medical diagnosis of bone spurs in his heels. Back in two thousand, nineteen trump's former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen testified the trump admitted to faking those bonds first telling cone quote you think I'm stupid I wasn't going to Vietnam. There's even more evidence that trump view soldiers at stupid or suckers Mary trump the president's knees wrote in a recent book that trump and threatened to disown his eldest son if don Jr. joined the military. She also says that her own Father Fred trump junior was mocked by donald trump because he fred trump junior decided to join the US air. National. Guard quote my father was frequently ridiculed for his career choices and disparaged for serving our country by both his father and by his brother Donald. Then, there's the fact that pretty much none of trump's top military officials past and present are backing the president up. I mean you really can't find anyone who's stepping forward to defend his character save he would never say anything like that they aren't disputing the story instead that's been left talking heads and former flax and loyalists. That's maybe not a huge surprise because trump allegedly said about all US servicemembers, hues very closely to what he said back in two thousand fifteen about one particular veteran Senator John McCain. War here or euro he's a war hero years he's a war hero presumes captured. I like people that weren't captured. Okay I hate to. John. McCain was prisoner of war in Vietnam for five years host. Donald Trump avoided that war had a different experience in an interview in the nineties. He characterized his efforts to avoid transmitted diseases while sleeping with numerous women as quote, my personal Vietnam. An. Event with Union members today Joe Biden lambasted the president's comments an invoked zone Sun Beau who served in Iraq and then died from a brain tumor in two thousand fifteen. Those of served. Risk, their lives even gave their lives, our nation losers suckers. He's our heroes. Tell you something. My Bowl wasn't loser. For A sucker if that's I, talk about our veterans, you have no business being president of the United States of America. What's being entered into the record here to take a step back and look at all the evidence about Donald Trump. Shocking. Morally offensive. It's not surprising. It's about what we have come to expect. But. One big question that keeps pulling on my shoulders. Why are we learning about this now? What does it mean that we are? For more on that and the fallout from his incredible reporting joined by Jeffrey Goldberg He's the Editor in chief of the Atlantic and I jeff, maybe I start a little bit with. The reaction to this story from the White House you. There are stories that come out all the time about the president that are fairly scandalous incredibly scandalous. And one time they said it's fake news and they swatted away or the new cycle moved on, they do seem particularly freaked out. About this reporting. An particularly intent on attacking it what what is your sort of reading of the last three or four days of their reaction? Well he's a good question. First thing I would say is that. This is not an attack on these are not reports of an attack on site immigrants or black people or or something like that we expect from Donald Trump and something that his base might actually help him with his base. This could hurt him with his with his base You know the the the second thing is I. Think there's a lot of. Nervousness in the White House and again I won't I'm not commenting on anything having to do with my sourcing or other reporter's saw sourcing Fox. Washington Post whatever. I'm you know there's a there's a deep hostility and mistrust in the White House of. Current and former generals people who lead the military. We saw that today Donald Trump did something that I. I've never seen before he attacked his own a service chiefs. He attacked his own leaders of the Armed Forces on call? Them. I mean, even in the even in this sort of an Tasma, we are twenty twenty race that's still something but I think it has to do with the fact that This is the kind of accusation that sounds believable in also goes directly to. A core constituency that Donald trump obviously needs to Keep energized come November. Yeah we we should note that there's there's been polling of of active duty servicemembers in which he's he's underwater with them There's been an interesting sort of officer enlisted split, but he's been losing ground even with a enlisted members. He's gone for a net positive nine points and Net net net negative twelve points. You can see that there. That's the latest military times pulling. You just mentioned what he said today was pretty remarkable. Briefly, sort of like channeling kind of like left anti-imperialism vis-a-vis his own service chiefs although it's completely like made up and fabricated because he. In the next breath, he's constantly bragging about how big the Pentagon budget is and how Raytheon is making off like a bandit. So but I wanNA play that clip just to get your response to it take a listen to what he said. I'm not saying that military in love with me to soldiers are the top people in the Pentagon probably aren't because they want to do nothing but fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and everything else they. Happy. But we're getting out of the endless wars you know how we're doing. But here's the thing Jeff. They're not this drives me insane the where we have expanded our footprint, we've expanded bombings all the theaters, and this is an absolute con-. This idea that the Great Antiwar Donald Trump has some revolt on his hands on the generals. As, you will know the generals are usually more hesitant to go to war than not usually often more has to go to war than than civilian leaders for some obvious reasons. No, this was remarkable i. mean he sort of channeling. Start Sixty Bob Dylan lyrics here I pointed out on a show media today it's It's quite remarkable given that tomorrow there's a pretty good chance that he'll brag about how much money he's spending on military hardware, and of course, as you know, he's deeply transactional in love it when when foreign countries by our military equipment. So if you're looking for consistency in that particular clip, you're you're looking forward it in the wrong place it doesn't make sense in any kind of traditional understanding of of politics.

Trump reportedly called service members "losers" and "suckers"

"Again in the Atlantic and it sets the scene all the way back in two thousand eighteen when trump was in. Paris he was supposed to visit a cemetery for soldiers who died in war and if you'll remember he didn't actually end up going because he said the helicopter couldn't fly because it was raining. And there was a big deal about that obviously because he was afraid of a little rain. He also tried to claim that the secret service wouldn't drive but Jeffrey Goldberg says neither claim was true. In reality he says trump rejected the idea of visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain and because he did not believe it was important honor American war dead in that is according to four people with firsthand knowledge of discussion that day. He goes on to say in a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit. Trump said quote why should I go to that cemetery? It's filled with losers. It continues in a separate conversation on the same trip trump referred to more than eighteen hundred marines who lost their lives at Bellawood as quote suckers for getting killed. Bellawood was apparently consequential battle in American history I don't remember it off the top of my head, but I'm just reading what's in the article here. And it says that in that same trip talking about world war. One trump asked who are the good guys in this war? He also said that he didn't understand why the United States would intervene on the side of the allies. Now you'll remember he said this about John McCain back in two thousand fifteen but lost. So I, never liked him as much after that because I don't like interest. But but Frank Franklin. We get to He. He's war hero. He's a war. He's a war hero presumes capture. I like people that weren't captured. Okay. I hate to. The article says that trump had remained fixated on McCain in that when he died back in August twenty, eighteen trump told his senior staff this time according to three sources with direct knowledge of quote we going to support that losers funeral end quote and that he became furious when he saw flags lowered to half-staff saying quote what the F. Are we doing that for guy was a f Ing Loser The White House denies this whole report by the way saying, then the Anti Yadda trump's supported the military more than any president. The article continues according to sources with knowledge of the president's views. He seems to genuinely not understand why Americans treat former prisoners of war with respect. Nor does he understand why pilots who are shot down in combat are honored by the military on at least two occasions since becoming president according to three sources with direct knowledge of his views trump referred to former president George h.w Bush as a quote loser for being shot down by the Japanese. This is where it starts to really get cruel on memorial day twenty, seventeen trump went with then department of Homeland Security Secretary John, Kelly to Arlington Cemetery. The article says the two men were set to visit section sixty, the fourteen acre area of the cemetery that it is burial ground for those killed in America's most recent wars. Kelly son Robert is buried in section sixty according to sources with knowledge of this visit trump while standing by Robert Kelly's grave turned directly to John Kelly in said quote I don't get it what was in it for them. Kelly said he originally thought trump was making a ham handed reference to these selflessness of America's all volunteer force. But later he came to realize that trump simply does not understand non transactional life choices. This is coming from one of Kelly's friends who Goldberg says a retired four. Star General. This friend says quote he can't fathom the idea of doing something for someone other than himself. He just thinks that anyone who does anything when there's no direct personal gain to be had is a sucker. There's no money in serving the nation trump can't imagine anyone else's pain. That's why he would say this to the father of a fallen marine on Memorial Day in the cemetery where he's buried. It goes on to talk about how trump is basically used the military as props how he thinks they answer only to not the constitution as evidenced by his gassing of peaceful protesters in officer who had firsthand knowledge of trump's views says quote. He has a lot of fear. He doesn't see the heroism in fighting and then Goldberg says several observers told me that trump is deeply anxious about dying or being disfigured in this worry manifests itself as disgust for those who have suffered. Than it tells another story about how trump falsely claimed he called quote virtually all of the family members of service members who had died during his term, and then when family started speaking out and saying, no, you didn't trump had to begin rush shipping condolences to those families. Felt last paragraph ends on, which is actually pretty profound. I didn't expect you know something. So big to be saved for the end I thought would be the author's own thoughts but it says in a twenty eighteen White House planning meeting for such an event trump asked to staff not to include wounded veterans on grounds that spectators would feel uncomfortable in the presence of amputees quote nobody wants to see that end quote. I think to me the details really do add credibility and he says he's talking to three or four sources all the time. But it got really interesting here when the Associated Press confirmed his sources essentially this tweet from James Laporta an investigative reporter former marine infantryman. Now, obviously, with the Associated Press, the port a tweeted out yesterday a senior Defense Department official I just spoke with confirmed this story by Jeffrey. Goldberg in its entirety especially the graphs about late senator, John McCain and former Marine General John Kelly president. Donald Trump's former chief of staff. So before that, you had people trying to push out, wouldn't say this. Of course, he didn't say this this is false. Trump. Himself devoted three tweets to claiming that was just a hoax made up by the media who are hungry to You know and his political career. But yeah, that was definitely a big shock when she came out in essentially confirmed most of the story. Republicans are doing their usual remaining silent or denying that it's still true. and. I just don't know how you could say it's not true. He said this in public but. I never liked him as much after that because I don't like. It was right out there and this other tweet from just some random twitter account but it made me think the commander in chief was found guilty stealing money from kids. Cancer charity mocks disabled reporters, gases, protesters for photo ops over twenty thousand lies kills one hundred, ninety, thousand Americans violate civil rights, incites violence calls, fallen soldiers, losers, and suckers. Yeah I guess if you put it against everything, we know about trump name calling certainly seems to be in his wheelhouse. Mentioned surprised that this came to be a big story

Trump panned over reports he called US war dead 'losers'

"William Branham reports on the fallout intensifying today over an article that alleges President Trump made disparaging remarks about U. S troops. It's a fake story, and it's a disgrace that they're allowed to do it. President Trump is firing back after a report in the Atlantic magazine and later confirmed by multiple news organizations, said the president several times called fallen American servicemembers, losers and suckers in the Oval Office today, the president again flatly denied ever making the comments. And instead touted military spending under his administration. There's nobody that considers the military and especially people that have given their lives in the military to be the heroes. Who the heck does he think he is his Democratic opponent, former vice President Joe Biden, whose own son, Beau, served in Iraq. Called the reported comments deplorable. But my son volunteered, enjoying the United States military as the attorney general. I went to Iraq for a year. Won the Bronze Star. Another commendations. He wasn't a sucker secretary of state Mike Pompeo, who was on a 2018 trip to Paris when the president allegedly made some of these comments. Told Fox News. He doesn't remember them have never heard the president used the language. Those certainly has said in that article. But going back to his 2016 campaign, Mr Trump has had a complicated relationship with the military theme. He's often praised those with military experience and has had many working with him in the White House. But other times he's questioned their service. Like his widely criticized comments about Senator John McCain, who was tortured and imprisoned for more than five years during the Vietnam War, a war hero. I like people that weren't captured President Trump overwhelmingly one among veterans in 2016, But since then, his approval rating among members of the military has dropped to 38% in a new poll from Military times. With two months until Election Day. Mr Biden has a four point advantage with thes voters.

You Yesterday, Senator John McCain's service was held while. You and I were on the air I didn't get to see it but when I went. Home Terry. My wife said you have to see this it's it's beautiful and I watched it I didn't see the whole thing but I saw a lot of it I don't. Know if you've got to see any of it by far the most touching moment it was it was great all the way through when. His wife Cindy McCain approached the casket yesterday realizing and. I kept, thinking about our talk with John Duffy, yesterday about grieving so his wife comes up and just kind of puts her cheek rests her cheek on the casket. As her less way of saying goodbye And that. Set it all didn't that set it all and then his kids came out one. At a time and each guy you know fifteen or twenty seconds with the casket. Essentially and Megan McCain who is probably the most prominent well known of his. Children? Because, she's on the view and she's better. Broadcaster fears she just absolutely could not stop crying I it's it's beautiful and touching to watch and. I think most of us at. Some point in their life have, been there where, you're in that moment where. You go this is kind of it. I realize I've lost that person, but this this is the last seconds. With them and boy it's it's beautiful and stunning and hard to watch all at the same, time but. It also shows you how different family members grieve everybody has a different process sometimes you're just stoic and getting through it and then you collapse after the services sometimes. You just can't stop crying and you never know how you're gonna react right I I totally understood that moment for her I've I've had We've. All had a couple of situations, where that moment plays out and you just like. I knew, this was coming eventually and here it is and it's impossible to handle but. It it's it's beautiful I mean it's really I think every parent hopes that their. Children will miss them as much as she obviously will miss her father tough tough. Couple of minutes there I don't think about how my kids will need to. Be? Honest, with you I'm just trying to wake. Up, every morning All right let's so for ereck is pretty. Good so far you've woke up much morning But a few Right Funny I really often think about how much my kids will miss. Me I don't spend a lot of thinking about, it but I hope I, mean I would love for them to miss me half as much as she obviously will miss her. Dad you, know I hope I hope my kids realize all the effort I put into them because I gotta be honest with you until my mom passed. Away and then I had kids of my. Own that's when I realized how much my mom gave everything for, me. Stop you. Don't it doesn't click right. Away I, mean your mom's always there there most of the, time but moms are are always. There and then you, know when when I lost, her it was. Bad but then when I had, kids I was bumped she never got to meet my.

"Senator John McCain was a towering figure in American politics throughout his decades, long career. People of all political persuasions have how found themselves at one point or another either cheering on John McCain for his righteousness, bravery, or being infuriated by his Austen's and wrongheadedness Elise behind extremely complicated and enduring legacy. A man who's been on both the right and wrong sides. Some America's most important questions to Charlie Pierce writer, large for Esquire magazine who wrote this weekend about his enduring admiration for John McCain, despite this laws and Josh barrow, MSNBC contributor and senior editor business insider was a piece out today, but these sincerity and popularity of the center from Arizona, Joshua thought. It was interesting piece to talk about whether Americans still care about the intentions of politician, right? Because I think part of what people liked about John McCain while he was always more popular than his policy agenda was a broad sense that basically John McCain was acting out of principle and he was being sincere. And if he was wrong, he. Came at that honestly. And I think you've seen in our politics in the Trump era real real critique of meeting well, from both the right and from the left, I think from the left what you hear as well. People like John McCain, they use this positive public image to pursue an agenda that is against your interests. The rap on McCain for a number of years at been that he was basically a standard issue, Republican politician, wide variety of issues that was somewhat complicated by his extremely consequential vote to save ObamaCare, which have really, really large policy implications and then from the right, I think part of what has animated Trump ISM has been basically this idea that these well-meaning politicians with big global ideas and McCain had some genuinely big global ideas about spreading democracy. It was relatively a supporter of immigration Republican party in part because of the good that immigration to the US does people around the world basically saying, that's, that's people giving away your stuff. And you need is someone greedy, like Donald Trump, who will not not be nice like John McCain. And so I think partly people have soured on the idea of Ernest politician like John McCain and not. Always for crazy reasons, especially the stuff from the left. I think you know, John McCain made some really big mistakes thinking he meant well, you know, supporting the Iraq war that got a lot of people killed Charlie, you. You had occasion to cover him over a long period of his career. What? What are your thoughts. Yeah, the very, I read the very first profile I wrote for Esquire back in nineteen. Ninety nine was with John McCain. It was marked by the fact that I was with him in Arizona at seven o'clock, six o'clock in the morning Pacific time the day. The Lewinsky scandal broke. Was the first time I'd ever laid eyes on him. We were in his car. We're driving around going with this. I was just by hanging around time for the story. And he looked over at me. I had known me for fifteen minutes. He looked at me and said, what do you think I should say about this? And you know, first of all, what am I supposed to say to senior United States Senator about whether or not the president has been doing hired help. The second thing I thought was now, the second thing I thought was now I understand why this guy gets the press. He does right. He's already involved in this and as as somebody who appreciates good political moves the same way. I appreciate the good baseline drive. I thought that was quite I was very impressed by that. Yeah. Well, he, he had a people in Capitol Hill staffers fellow members of the United States Senate and in politics and Cougars all felt like a connection to him because he was very good at pulling those folks into particularly the press who he sort of lovingly teased and spent a lot of time with and cure a lot about. Yeah. And I think the other thing is he really was a gut politician driven by ideas about honor. And, and I think partly that is that that is why he had this image as the maverick because sometimes that would lead him to policy positions that were surprising. The driven by life event. You know, he got caught up in a relatively minor way in the Keating five scandal very early in his political career.

"Arrest I was listening to my radio on. Saturday five fifty campway I when I heard Mike Broomhead on in realize what was going on. Today I had an opportunity to speak to the Arizona federation of Republican. Women it was an unplanned, presentation but I will tell you Exactly what I told them this? Morning Senator John McCain, of course passed away at the age of, Eighty-one he will. Lie in state at the capital on Wednesday and people from all, over the country media from all over the world will converge on the great state of Arizona for the occasion will why because Senator John McCain whether you like it. Was a big man a great man there, are things people can agree on these days few things really but one universal reaction to the. Senator's death is a deep in abiding sympathy for his family in gratitude. For the sacrifices he made, while serving in the navy Now my my some of my opinions on, has some of the things that John McCain has done his policies the way he conducted some of his campaigns I could probably go on all day about that But today Is that, the day I met Senator John. McCain on two, occasions the first time the first occasion. Actually changed my life that was what I. Call the McCain moment the town hall, meeting in the Milwaukee Wisconsin In a witch I begged. John McCain to take it to Barack, Obama In the third, debate I did not know the event was covered by the world. Media and so I was immediately put in the spotlight Senator, McCain promise. Be whispered in my, ear what he was going to do in that third debate and, that whisper hug thing went with worldwide would viral It was at that point that I was pretty much ostracized from what you would call the, black community And to. This day I am still known among America's of African descent for that moment back in two thousand eight It costs a lot when I supported Senator John McCain It wasn't about race for me was about ideology And what are the things that I think that Senator John McCain will be remembered for amongst? Many is his ideal of reaching across the, aisle I guess in that moment for many peoples Many Democrats. That's exactly what I was doing especially if you're black democrat why is he reached across the aisle while supporting John McCain because of his ideas I was more closely tuned to his ideas then. I was a tuned to Barack Obama's ideas My? Meeting with John McCain led to the infamous. See in walk off in support of John McCain Because of Senator John McCain. In that moment my radio show at, the time I was on a weekend show Sunday night show sometimes Saturday and Sunday night show I it became a national show as people started streaming from all over the country to hear more from this. From this black guy who stood up and beg Senator John McCain to take it to Barack Obama So in a very real way even though I have grown over the years to kind of not like some of the things that Senator John McCain was saying or doing In a very, real way I am on the radio in the valley of the sun because of my interaction with Senator John McCain so on this day I will honor. The passing of Senator John McCain remembering what what standing up for ideas in classic over ideas has done for for our country has done for for. Me my career here And that was the first time that Senator John McCain or other. Times as well But again That's not. For today So the, McCain family of course and people all over the world had been doing just this praying for them sending their condolences And I do the same I also find it strange on this, day that the the media we'll talk about this a little, bit later in the show but just amazing to me If there's one thing that John McCain taught, us it was to reach across the aisle the try to, to to strike a deal With our fellow Democrats, now of course I didn't really dig what we're trying to deals were trying to be. Struck when he was reaching across the aisle but I find, it strange, that President Trump has been able to reach across the aisle if you. Will sit down with the dictator of North Korea Kim Jong and. Try to strike a deal over them getting rid of their nukes we've, seen President Trump try to have dialogue. With bladder MIR Putin we've seen President Trump Strike a deal with Mexico today. Trying to get Canada to strike a deal having the e strike. A deal over tariffs But the one group does. Not willing to sit down with President Trump Strike a deal Are democrats Democrats walked away when President Trump try to strike a deal on DACA Democrats refused to participate in the tax cuts that have led to just our economy to. Go on super boost And of course Democrats Refuse to deal with the president when they came to repeal and replacing ObamaCare now you see how even generous I am in this because I'm not even calling in the never Trumpers I not not today So if you are watching, all of this television, all of the praise it all of the from the from the left from the, lens of the world the MSNBC's the ABC CBS in all. Of the alphabet soups I think they're dealing in hypocrisy The very. Things that they're using to praise Into acknowledge the passing of Senator John McCain they're using, to bash our current president over the head It's the, same thing that's happening you have many many people especially in the great state of Arizona? She's you have you have you have candidates who have Canceled campaigning. For a, few days they're. Putting things on hold their. Stopping things out of out of. Deference out of, respect for, Senator John McCain that's something I don't. Quite frankly. I don't understand we have a primary tomorrow We, are in the political season. The stakes are high but I do understand this sentiment in like if I remember correctly that's something that Senator John. McCain did went back in two thousand eight when he was campaigning against Obama there was a financial crisis he. Suspended the campaign to. Go back, to Washington DC. And deal with that issue I guess that that's a sort of a a deference But this it's to, watch the reaction the overwhelming reaction from the mainstream media the outpouring of love and respect for Senator McCain from the. Very people, who accused him, of all kinds of craziness Julia minute. Wait a minute accused him of the very same, things there are accusing President Trump today is mind blowing The hypocrisy to me is mind blowing I. Want to point you to a pulse I'm gonna post this up on on. My page with us from grassroots partners this is a c q, our friend Kostyantyn, Courard has a wonderful and I mean wonderful piece, up is called praying for John McCain and he talks about some of the things I've been. Seen today from the media as well, but he breaks down the different camps. Different views that people would about views, people had about a Senator John McCain and it's overriding theme is. Simply this now is not the time Now the time This is the time for us to remember the life of someone who. Was very influential someone who represented the great. State of Arizona Someone who's passing is being mourned by by. Millions and I will not step on that This time will be booby be for them but I will continue to defend the president of the United States against the onslaught of of progressive craziness because the long Nizer out And at four twenty I have a I have an illustration of what I'm talking, about here where the media even in the, death of John McCain will use the things he's done in the past to try to further damage conservatives fourteen minutes after the hour You are listening to the news talk five fifty KFYI time for east side west.

"Coming back through the Cold War and Ronald Reagan, and it really is quite striking that there is so much waffling on the Russian threat right now. Richard Haass that there was a consistency. He was critical of Brock Obama for not being tough enough on Russia at times critical of George W Bush for not being tough enough on Russia, but. The only difference between McCain's criticisms then and over the past year was then he was joined by fellow Republican senators who also saw the importance of holding the line against Putin's expansionism now. So many of those Republicans grew silent, which is why John McCain's voice was all the more necessary in the age of Trump. In many ways, John McCain represents the main tradition of American foreign policy. And as you were suggesting, what's so worrisome or bizarre, choose whatever word you want about this moment is the mainstream in many cases has been relegated to being outsiders or minority, but we have in some ways what I would describe as the most radical foreign policy of any far of any American president. Now since Harry, Truman, John McCain was firmly in the Truman through Reagan through George Bush the senior and so. Fourth tradition, very internationalised, supporting allies, working through international institutions from working closest with with democratic countries, tough towards Russia, worried, look slightly about China, and suddenly we have something extraordinarily different than the fact that it stands out the telling and one of the worrying things at last year's, whether it's foreign policy or anything else is where is the congress. This is supposed to be the classroom American foreign policy holding hearings challenging the president when they disagree raining them in providing resources where they think is necessary. And all too often that the congress has been been missing an action. Jon Meacham notice better than anybody. We used to speak about the imperial presidency office lesson junior and other historians used to worry about the accumulation concentration of power in the hands of the presidency when it comes to foreign policy. Well, guess what? We still got it. And if anything it's stronger than ever and it's because they weren't another people enough people like John McCain, essentially challenge challenging presidential perogatives when the president was driving the train off the tracks. Let's go to the White House. Now, NBC news Pentagon correspondent Hans Nichols is with us also in Washington, former NATO supreme allied commander retired, four story at navy Admiral, James Savita. He's chief international security diplomacy analysts NBC news and MSNBC and an operating executive at the core Lyle group Hans. Let's start with you. Give us the news over the weekend regarding with Korea. Well, there's an incredible shift on Friday from the president cancelling that trip. While Mike Pompeo, the secretary state was planning to head to North Korea, took a lot of people by surprise. The Pentagon didn't have any advanced warning about at least the officials we talked to. So there is there big changes going on there. It's uncertain. Just what's driving this. The president blame China on trade. But when you talk to. And then violating the sanctions. But there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of evidence that China has radically changed their behavior in regards to trade with North Korea? Yeah, there might be some softening along the border with a few truck transfers, but nothing tectonic, Joe, Joe just real quickly on on McCain here at the White House. It doesn't appear that they're in mourning any longer. I just checked the flag. It's not hats half-staff today. The flag here at the White House was lowered yesterday today to peers to be still up. Dawn has just broken, so sometimes they lower bring it down at night, but not a flights on it. And you contrast that with the congress on Capitol Hill, it's still is half staff. So it looks like Senator John McCain only getting a pass staff for one day here at the White House. Joe. Admirals ravidas. We're, we're past being surprised by anything that Donald Trump does. Let's talk instead about character and John McCain of fellow navy man.

"But you're right, and the thing about it. Richard is over the weekend. There have been reports that President Trump. Nixed the idea of an official statement and instead tweeted something about the family without mentioning Senator McCain. Specifically, he signed the defense appropriations Bill named after John McCain last week without mentioning him specifically. And I think it's a measure of John McCain and his role in his stature in American life that you cannot compare nor contrast the size of both men. I mean, the president of the United States. So small Senator McCain, so huge in our lives in now in our memories to reactions, one is whenever you Patty, whenever you act small, the only person that gets diminished his yourself and the president accomplish that in spades, this week, and it was a moment for graciousness moment to reach out and he didn't. It's a stain on his character. In the case of Senator McCain, I've known him for decades. Two things. One is throwback. The idea, here's a Republican who's hanging out with Democrats. Here's a politician says unpolitical, thanks. It was reminded when we had real people a standing and stature walking the halls of the Senate. He's one of the big guys in the Senate people we grew up with. There's a lot of them anymore. And John McCain was one of them. It's also interesting to see the European and international reaction. People like macro reaching out to say public things, McCain represented an era of Atlanticism that stretches back to FDR and World War Two goes through the Cold War in the post Cold War period. He was one of the leading advocates of NATO enlargment of reaching out to these newly independent states of basically saying American foreign policy has to be about strategy, but we've also got to be about values and principal in democracy. It is striking the statements engine mccrone from Germany in Great Britain and nothing. From the Oval Office really know, and it's. Just when you think you lost the ability to shake your head anymore. Things like this happen and you basically, you can't believe what it is you're seeing in this case, you're not seeing that. You know, caddy it's very interesting. You see the comments from Justin Trudeau talking about Senator John McCain, being an American patriot and a hero who sacrifices for his country and a lifetime of public service where an inspiration to millions Canadians join Americans tonight in celebrating his life and mourning his passing. And of course. Justin Trudeau and Canadians join Americans except of course, for Donald Trump and I must say some former members, some members of my former party who just acted Hoernle and the time of John McCain's death. So apparrently that I don't want to even mention their name on this show because they are beneath contempt and you really do at the end of the day, you wonder who raised them and what are those people thinking of them now that they would kick around a man in his last twenty four to forty eight hours while he was dying. But speaking of character, I wanted to read you a tweet from General Michael Hayden who talked about John McCain's character and general Hayden and John McCain. We're not on the same. Side on many things. And of course, John McCain especially talked about when we talk about values, he talked about what America should and shouldn't do war. He's talking about waterboarding torture. Of course. We all remember that. We had some crosswords about that ourselves, but General Michael Hayden. Said, while I was at the CIA Senator, John McCain, ripped me a new one on several occasions, but not once. Did he think I shouldn't have a security clearance? Go figure rest in peace, American hero. And I think that's the greatest legacy that here you have some of the most liberal candidates in America right now who represent the far progressive left, remembering John McCain, positively. You have. Michael Hayden and others who John McCain ripta shreds. Because of policy differences coming out, calling him an American hero. This is a man that people loved and respected and admired even after engaging in the toughest of political fights because they knew that it was coming from his heart and not. For cheap. Political gain? Yeah, you have to wonder whether the people down in Arizona, you refer to them obliquely just a moment ago. Some of those people in the White House who have spoken out against John McCain over the course of the.

Top story about Senator John McCain's passing what a great man I don't know, that I agreed with. Every single one of his political opinions but it doesn't matter this man was a man who really served. His country had a great. Sense of humor had nice family I was an independent, thinker I had all the respect in the world. For him and I just want to talk one quick story my husband and I were, in Vietnam about a year. And a half ago during Christmas and we stopped, in Hanoi and of course. We went to the Hanoi Hilton, which is a horrible prison it was the whole low prison which at first was used by, the French to hold Vietnamese prisoners when the French occupied Vietnam and. Then the Vietnamese leader used it to, house the US prisoners John McCain was. One of those prisoners. And it was just a horrible place there was a guillotine there It was a horrible conditions were were just astounding and the idea that he spent time as, much time as he. Did, they're five and a. Half years almost six years and came out here and not to say he was. Unscathed he was physically. Hurt but that he was so mentally strong that he was able to achieve, what he did after. He left was really an amazing amazing thing and interestingly there's a lake there and right along the lake. It's called troop Bach lock. Lake and there was a sign and I said to, my tour guide oh Senator McCain was captured here. And I'm thinking oh that was a nice little tribute to him and of course what, I was missing was that. They were very happy to have captured him in, they appeared to think that. That was a good thing not, a tribute to him but he was instrumental in getting the Vietnamese people back with the Americans, and there's very good relations now duty partly at least his efforts. So rest in peace and thank you, for your service we haven't great show. We're going to be.

"The powerful backing of American Express don't do business without it. Schivonne another admirable trait. Many point to in talking about John McCain, whether they're Republicans or not, is his willingness to admit mistakes. And that's something he's done publicly several times over the course of his career. This is a guy who's honest with himself and frequently honest with the public. So one of those was when he was coaxed into making a false confession when he was in North Vietnam, it was something he felt terrible about. He was very honest about his failings when it came to the Keating five scandal, that banking intervention, we talked about. He was also to a degree honest about his personal life. His first marriage had failed when he got home from the war he was changed. His first wife was changed. She'd been in a horrible accident that left her unable to walk in the marriage came apart. He apologized for that and then blamed himself for that. He. Also could be open about some of the handwringing that he experienced when it came to the Iraq war. He had voted in favor of the Iraq war, which as we all know was under it into based on faulty information. He had a sense that in supporting the military which he did very strongly. It did put soldiers lives at risk. So there are a lot of instances in which he, you could see him sort of mentally hanging his head in realizing he hadn't lived up to his own standards, although that certainly what he was aiming for a Chaban I wanna talk about one of the last votes McCain made as a Senator, and this was after returning to the Senate against his doctor's advice, and it was to cast a no vote against Republican efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. I'm curious for those who cover Washington politics. What was that moment like to see a Republican book his own party, like that guess was an absolutely defining moment, and you could literally feel the electricity in the air from the moment he walked into the Senate floor when he refers. Used to say how he was going to vote to watching him stand in a cluster with Susan Collins at Lisa Murkowski as the entire Republican party looked his way wondering if he was going to bring down one of their stigma charcoals. And then that that down that I conduct thumbs down as Senate majority leader. Mitch McConnell crossed his arms and frowns at him was just a remarkable and defining moment in the Senate and that willingness to defy his own party certainly caught the attention of President. Donald Trump who McCain vocally disagreed with on more than one occasion. Absolutely. I, Donald Trump has been very tough on Senator McCain and Senator McCain gave it right back it. He was not cowed by Donald Trump, which is something very different from how a lot of other Republicans handle the president. Other Republicans would go quiet. Other Republicans have made excuses for Donald Trump. John McCain was having absolutely none of that. And he used many, many opportunities. To come back Donald Trump to accuse him of things like spurious, half-baked nationalism, and to really stand up for the values of a particular wing of the Republican party Schivonne as we remember Senator John McCain, what have you been hearing from colleagues fellow lawmakers on the hill about his legacy. First of all, lawmakers are absolutely crushed. What people feel is that John McCain was one of a kind that his absence leaves a huge void in the Senate, partly because of his moral fortitude on his toughness, partly because he was so much fun. He had an incredible sense of humor. He risked a joke in an environment in which a lot of people are terrified to make jokes because they're afraid of the political consequences. And so it's a loss for his colleagues on so many levels. McCain was also asked a few times how he'd like to be remembered, and I find it so interesting that he chose to people from opposite ends of the political spectrum to deliver his. You'll. Oh, jeez. His one time opponent, former President, Barack Obama and former President, George W Bush in a way making a statement about reaching across the aisle even in death. Absolutely. He was making a statement about bipartisanship and it's worth noting that that was the subject of really his final major speech on the Senate floor. He said, we have to work together..

"I diagnosed in July of twenty seventeen joining us now from Washington to talk about McCain's life and legacy is Wall Street Journal reporter, Chevron Hughes Chevron, as you write in your piece for the Wall Street Journal McCain's life was in many ways a life that defied the odds and there are elements. Certainly, here that have become legendary. He came from a navy family and during the Vietnam war was captured and spent five and a half years in prison, undergoing torture and conditions. Most of us cannot imagine. Can you tell us a little bit about that experience and how it came to share. His views and his life. That experience was one of the defining experiences of his life. It taught him how to rely on other people. He was confined in solitary confinement, and so the way prisoners would communicate with each other was through. They had a special code. They were tapping along the walls. It taught him a lot of moral fortitude. The North Vietnamese knew that his father was a very prominent Admiral and they tried to coax him into early release in McCain refused because he was convinced that it would have been terrible for morale. If someone who was shot down last or later as Ted ended up getting out earlier and cutting in line, it also taught him a lot about torture and the reasons why torture might not be a good idea. And that was a theme that would come up again and again, particularly after September eleventh. And of course, he very vocally opposed towards her and the practice of waterboarding when McCain was freed in nineteen Seventy-three. Soon after returning to the US. Began his life in congress, winning a house seat and in nineteen Eighty-six winning the Senate seat vacated by Barry Goldwater. He had some political setbacks to though including his involvement in the Keating five. Can you tell us about that experience and how it came to shape his politics thereafter, don't experience to me is when he starts seriously. Thinking about the role of money in politics, Charles Keating was a very prominent banker and John McCain among other senators had intervened on behalf of Mr. Keating with federal banking regulators, and it turned out that that perhaps not such a great idea because the Mr. Keating's banking business wasn't stable. It went belly up and ended up costing the government several billion dollars. Although mister Cain was reprimanded for showing poor judgment. He didn't suffer the punishment that some of the other senators had, but it left him filled with enormous shame and it was something that if he even thought about it for a moment. He could be taken back instantly to that second where he felt he had really let the public down. And so what you see later on is him mount very strong effort in favor of campaign finance reform, trying to really think hard about the role of money in politics, getting to another milestone in his life by two thousand. He had launched a bid for the GOP presidential nomination. And this is where we also see his willingness to challenge the ideas of his own party. That bid was ultimately unsuccessful, but in a way, set him up for the next time around in two thousand eight when he challenged Barack Obama. And there are moments during this campaign that people point to as emblematic of McCain's character, particularly in those cases where he defended Obama his opponent against false claims, that Obama was a Muslim and not born in the United States. So there are really two separate campaigns. We're talking about here. One is in two thousand when he was absolutely the under dog. He wrote around in a bus called the straight, talk express. He took hour after hour of questions from reporters. And really cast himself as an authentic open. Tell like it is different type of candidate later on in two thousand eight. He ran what a lot of people considered to be a much more conventional campaign, but there were moments when he really was swimming against the tide. And one of those was when there's a particular video that encapsulates what people mean when they talk about this campaign, someone said that they thought Barack Obama was a Muslim and John McCain in front of the cameras looks at her and says, no, ma'am. No, ma'am. He's just someone who happens to have different views than I have, but he's not a Muslim. And that was just a huge act because it really stood against what a lot of people in the Republican party felt. And even if it cost him the election,.

"Senator John McCain is controversial. Not not in my house I think John, McCain is of course in the news is just taught about he, has been battling A particularly insidious and deadly form of brain cancer for over a year and underscoring just, what an awful diseases, is his family's announcing today that it made the decision to end medical treatment which is a condition, that if you've ever dealt with somebody close to you who said the battle. Cancer inevitably in many cases it. Gets to that point where you just decides that the, treatments aren't working anymore and they're having and it's. Just an adverse impact and there's just nothing more. To be gained, and then you, make that decision and I don't. Know what this means for Senator McCain other than the fact that it's typically a. Decision you make one nears. The end of his life, but you, know the family said we're gonna be discontinuing medical treatment I One of the things that. Candidly I always had an issue I've had a lot of issues during. The two thousand sixteen presidential campaign the some of the things, that then candidate Trump said and and. I will be honest with you. His decision to attack John McCain I understand the John McCain is a source has has been over the, years on a particular issue here or, there has been a source of I. Don't know consternation for for Republicans John McCain's always been, somewhat of a of a maverick and I certainly didn't agree with him on all the things he did by. By no stretch of the imagination but I don't know that I agree with anybody and. All the things that they do but I I remember when when President Trump during the course of the campaign, decided to respond to punch back, go, after Senator McCain by saying well I don't know why everybody refers to him. As a, war hero war hero of course John McCain served several. Years in Vietnamese prisoner of war After having his, plane, shot down and President Trump says to me heroes are the ones that don't. Get shot, down or words that effect I thought, that was disgraceful I just I did and especially I think it would have been stressful for anybody but. Especially disgraceful for somebody like, President Trump who avoided, you know used, various connections and stuff to avoid having to serve in the military himself to. Challenge Senator McCain service I thought it was appalling which isn't to say like I. Said, I understand. There's all sorts of. Political disagreements that are out there and all and I understand that Senator McCain had taken. Positions and wasn't a fan of Donald Trump's vice versa I. Get all that but I thought that was a particularly appalling thing to say and it's it to me it showed that Donald Trump the. Candidate really, had no filter and it's one of the, reasons why I, candidly hope that Donald Trump the president would be able. To restrain some of those those things and unfortunately I think that hasn't worked out that way, but John McCain who I consider at least to be an American hero. And that's that is acknowledging That I think he has been wrong on some issues. He has been obstinate on some issues I consider him to be an American hero and this this news extremely unfortunate but unfortunately at the. Same time, relatively predictable it is interesting to me one, of the questions, matter of fact several people emails about what happened if. At this point in time Given the, dire nascent nature of the, prognosis if Senator McCain. Were to now step down or if he were to. Pass away you know what happens to that seat in the simple answer is that the Republican governor. Of Arizona, gets to appoint a replacement for him that replacement whoever that is chosen would then serve until, the next general election not in Arizona knocked the one. In November but the next one and that would be to, fill out Senator McCain's term so whoever gets appointed would take off his. Pretty much immediately and would be there. For a while interestingly enough it does get complicated if the governor, and the. Governor of, Arizona Republican has said, that he's, he has no interest in. Appointing himself to that. Seat if the, governor of Arizona were to appoint a congressman well then the way The law works if you'd have to have, a special election to fill that congressman seat pretty quickly but if you appointed somebody, other than a congressman of, there wouldn't be an. Elect there wouldn't be an election in Arizona for a. While but it's a little bit complicated but the bottom line. Is for people wondering what happens if. Senator McCain, rather to step down or pass away what happens in the simple answer is you have a, Republican governor Zona who will appoint Senator McCain's replacement who. Will then serve for the foreseeable future until the next scheduled, general election which So that person would be voting for example on if Senator McCain were to, decide that, he was going to step down effective today the governor makes, an appointment next week that person would then be there for the hearings on judge cavenaugh for example so that that's that's. Where all plays into it but you only get too caught up with the politics because again I understand well somewhat controversial figure I think John McCain. Is is a great American I just I just do he was of course the. Republican standard bearer in two thousand eight which was a, year that given the ascendancy of. Barack Obama and the fact that Republicans were coming off you know eight, years of President Bush and the fact. That you know Democrats were completely mobilized to try to do away with any remnants of the Bush administration that that two thousand eight campaign I think we've pretty much probably doomed from, star But I thought he ran think, you ran a strong campaign I think he's been a solid conservative standard bearer again acknowledging some well I, don't know, some decisions that I don't think I would have made like, McCain Feingold campaign finance and things like but John McCain the announcement today that they are no longer going to be providing. Medical treatment for his particularly insidious type of cancer Whatever that means moving forward. You know tough, to say but not good, news I think everybody's prayers should be the Senator McCain and. With his family moving forward all, right when we come, back we're..
