Donald Trump is finished, but will 'Trumpism' prevail?
"It's been more than a week since the us presidential election joe biden of course has claimed victory whereas the president is yet to concede defeat but when donald trump eventually leaves office the question. We have to ask ourselves is is trumpism. Really finished after all the media conventional wisdom the new york times washington. Post the major networks. Cnn msnbc all that conventional wisdom is that the twenty twenty election represents a repudiation of trumpism and what's trump luckily to do after he leaves office well for more. Let's turn to patrick. J buchanan senior adviser to president reagan nixon and ronald reagan. Pat has been a regular fixture in america's opinion pages and cable television shows for generations. Ninety ninety two and ninety six pat buchanan ran for the presidential nomination of his party. The republican party on america first platform pass walking back to you between the lines. Good to your tom now. Let's start with the election itself to spotted trifecta of crises health economic racial the us congressional and presidential contests were very tight. How do you account for that. I think there were tight for this reason. The covid virus which hammered us in march and april and then all during the summer and full took the lodge. That's two hundred and thirty thousand americans and they induced an economic decline unrivalled since the great depression. And then you have to racial turmoil in the country. And the wake of the killing of george floyd in minneapolis riots. And and things like that. So he's really damaged trump in the eyes of the public and his administration and normally they would've killed any presidential candidate. But i will say that in the fall. When trump was further behind he basically one mechanic team won the battle against biden. It was surging at the end of the campaign but he did not get over the top or at least so far so i think what you can say is trump and trumpism won the campaign. They lost the election because of the burdens. They had to terry which were too happy to cross the finish line. And let's not forget that in the late up to the election the metric conventional wisdom the polls the pundits. They predicted a democratic sweep. A blue wave washing the republicans out of power capturing the senate and delivering an alleged democratic congressional majority if the democrats did indeed have a clean sweep of the congress and the white house what would radical progressive in the american takes. What would that have made if you had nancy. Pelosi in control of the house and chuck schumer and control. The should i which looks less and less likely now and preston biden into white house. Biden's problem would be the tremendous pressure from the progressive left wing of this party to impose his leftist agenda. The party home to the country in the first two years of his administration. And i think it would be virtually impossible biden to resist the democrats cheap to kill the filibuster. Which would eliminate the ability of the republicans to stop their agenda and we would be off to the races with medicare for all the green new deal statehood for puerto rico statehood for dc. Defunding the cops. Pack the supreme court the whole left wing democratic agenda. They would try to ram through with fifty one votes. In the senate and biden frankly would be restraining force because republicans wouldn't be able to do it if they lost the filibuster in the senate which is what. Barack obama urged the democrats to take away if they win the senate okay now bought and has pasta to sydney electoral college. Votes needed to win the white house now given that it's very hard to prove widespread electoral fraud pat. Why want trump just accept defeat. Here's trump is demanding that he be allowed to play out last play of the deal. Because i think he feels he has been treated horribly by the democrats and the liberals in the press and he's not gonna do them a favour. He's got a right to make sure. The counselor made and certain things happen by certain dates. He's not going to speed up the transition. It's not gonna be a pleasant transition at all. He's going to treat them the way they felt. They treated him when he came in with the russia investigation and all the rest of it. So i think what you're getting is. Trump is looking at upon this if it succeeds is a hostile takeover of the government of the united states. And he is acting to resisted with every legal constitutional weapon. He has so it's This is not a cordial country power at all. Okay but with dany. Before the nineteen sixty presidential election between richard nixon and john f kennedy. That was very taught. There was a lot of speculation about electoral fraud in texas and illinois. And that of course benefited. The democrats won that election now. Apologies for the very scratchy. Sound quality of these vintage news report from sixty years ago. but he's nixon. Your boss pat here. He is at four. Am at republican headquarters. After the election conceding. Defeat to and and results shows come in if the present trend continues If mr kennedy and senator kennedy will be the next president of the united states senators kennedy now. And i want you know that. Certainly this trend has continued and he does become our next president that he will have my. That's richard nixon conceding. Defeat john f. kennedy in nineteen sixty pat buchanan. Why can't trump do a nixon accept defeat graciously that at four am gathering. My wife was present. She worked for richard nixon and the nineteen sixty campaign and travel. The country would and the point is that was a different time in a different country. That america's today america's bitterly divided and one of the contributing factors is the is the belief correct in my view that donald trump was denied. Not only a good transition but donald trump was investigated by the fbi and during the transition. They went after his state of the fbi did and they had a two year investigation beach. Kim they try to defeat him then they tried to overthrow him. And i think trump feels this and he says i established nothing. They can go. I mean they can go too far as i'm concerned and we're going to run this old way out and make sure every ballot is counted and all the towns are accurate. And whether or not we're going to go to court and exercise our rights and we're not going to pretend otherwise that this is a pleasant for easy transfer of power this was a hostile takeover and trump's view. I mean they're campaign run against him former first lady. Michelle obama is already talking about the house and he could and racism and the rest endemic pain in what he come folks voted for. So i think look you gotta divided country and there's no sense pretending otherwise and trump is not gonna gauge any pretense.

The Photographer and the Busboy
"Of June fourth nine thousand nine hundred sixty eight Los Angeles Times photographer. Boris Yaro was relaxing at home after a long day at work. It was presidential. Oh Primary Day in California the kind of stuff journalists live for turning on the TV news. Yaro heard that Robert The F. Kennedy was about to win the primary and celebrate at the Ambassador Hotel Euro admired Kennedy and he really wanted a picture picture of him for his Living Room Wall and the Ambassador Hotel wasn't that far away so Yaro figured what the Heck I'll go over. He wound up taking one of history's most unforgettable images with his press pass and camera hanging around his neck. Yaro was able to get close to Kennedy as he finished his victory speech and walked away to shake hands. That's one of the man named Sirhan Sirhan walked up and begin firing at Kennedy's Senator Senator Kennedy call by Senator Kennedy has been shot. Yaro was right there. He described the moment for the story story core podcast earlier this year saying the crowd separated like Moses parting the Red Sea and Kennedy was putting his hands up like a boxer trying trying to avoid getting hit bobby. I saw him slumped to the ground. His legs were splayed toward me and I saw the blood dripping out of his ear ear then you are shot the photo that haunts history Kennedy his legs limp staring blankly into nowhere with the young busboy crouched beside him propping up his head with stunned helpless look on his face that busboy Juan Romero died earlier this month from a heart attack at age sixty eight though in truth his heart broke that night as Kennedy lay dying in his hands like so many others in the late sixties Romero a seventeen year old Mexican can immigrant said he saw Kennedy as a uniting inspiring figure in a time of great tunnel just the day before Romero delivered room service service to Kennedy. He told story core about it. Describing how Kennedy was on the phone when he walked in you could tell when he was looking at you that that he's not looking through you. Romero said he's taking you into account and I remember walking out of there like I was ten feet tall after snapping the photo Yaro raced to a phone so he could alert his editor. He was ordered to the newsroom room immediately while he told reporters what he saw. Someone else rushed to develop the film euro cried and he saw the a photo for the rest of their lives both men the photographer in the busboy were traumatized by the moment that year nineteen in sixty eight was chaotic and deadly riots assassinations. The country were seemingly coming apart and euros photo. Ah a photo he came. Kate was living proof. He said Bobby Kennedy was going to be the knight in shining armor and he didn't get get a chance. The psychological damage was worse for Romero. Just before the shooting Romero offered offered his hand to Kennedy for congratulatory handshake among the hundreds of letters he received were ones blaming him for for Kennedy's death. He recalled the letter saying if he hadn't stopped to shake your hand. The Senator Would Have Been Alive Romero moved moved to Wyoming to start a new life still he couldn't escape that moment cried a lot he felt guilty and and in two thousand ten Romero traveled to Arlington National Cemetery to visit Kennedy's gravesite to apologize in person he had never owned a suit so he bought one for the occasion getting dressed up showing Kennedy respect saying he was sorry all of it brought back the way he felt when he first laid eyes on Kennedy while serving Him Room Service. You felt important. He felt American. He felt

"It was while. I was in the Senate working for Senator Kennedy that I was asked by attorney general Levy to sit down with his staff and work out for the first time, the foreign intelligence surveillance court and Senator Kennedy the democrat. Introduced for president Ford and attorney general Levi that legislation which ultimately became the law and has since been an important part of the national security apparatus. So I was lucky I didn't confront uneducated or on the job training associates. I worked overwhelmingly with very experienced people at DOJ that taught me a thing to frankly. Right and probably taught other staffers on the committee as well. Right. How much did take Kennedy joke around back, then I I know him a little bit from that time working in the Senate for Senator Schumer, and I don't remember time when the two of them interacted, and there wasn't some amount of comedy that took place. All there was tremendous. Kennedy used to have shouting matches on the floor of the Senate with Senator McCain John McCain of Arizona, and then you'd see them after the shouting die down, and they went into the Senate back room, and the it'd be. Laughing and chuckling holding each other by the arm, and that that was that was the way Kennedy operated. Kennedy was a very very savvy friendly and sensitive Senator. And he I think the history books demonstrate his his role is a giant in the Senate when he was there, and he was there for forty five years. Don't. One of the things I thought about that. I knew him a little bit later in life not long before he passed away that here's a person who has a lot of money who's proven a lot. And whatever you think of it when people, you know, on on one side of the aisle, didn't like a lot of his ideas. But that guy worked really hard, and I would see him from when I was working late on the television screen every staffer has an in their office, and it'd be nine o'clock at night, and he'd be railing about some immigration Bill or amendment, and no one else is in the chamber, and he could have been home or at a fancy restaurant having dinner somewhere. And he was there, you know in his seventies. Giving a full length full-throated speech on immigration which he cared about. An you know, not everyone did that. No. That's why I think that everybody knowledge how hard he worked and how diligent and how determined he was to try and get things done. He always used to tell me that the perfect is the enemy of the good. The other thing you'll be familiar with is the way that the Sen.. It worked in those days. One day in the nineteen seventies. I was a young staffer Kennedy said to me come on and want you to see how this place operates. And he took me down to see the chairman of the committee Senator James e slim, Mississippi, Oshawa Gatien est fought every civil rights law that was ever an proposed Kennedy walked into Senate Eastman's office. And he said, Mr Chairman, I'm here because they are a full federal district court vacancies one in Massachusetts one in New York one in California one in Rhode Island. And I'm here to ask the champion if we can please move these nominations forward as quickly as possible and Eastman looked at him. And he said Ted you want these four quickly move through. Well, I'm gonna tell you what I'm gonna do a week from Tuesday..
Senator Rips Ted Cruz for 'Crocodile Tears' Over Shutdown
"Works securing the border. Walls are effective and I'll tell you every single border patrol agent. I've asked that and I have asked dozens probably hundreds of border patrol agents are walls affected unquestionably. They say, yes, let's not. Let's talk man. Walls, aren't the only thing you need technology, you need boots on the ground all sorts of other tools, but walls, the critical point in intercepting someone crossing over illegally. Is the time between detection. Interception. And what a wall does is slows down the traffickers to give the border patrol time. Intercepted. And by the way, we've seen it over and over again at San Diego when they built the wall the illegal traffic plummeted in El Paso when they built the wall the traffic plummeted. But now the Democrats their position it's not substantive. They voted for three hundred fifty miles a wall. So why are they shutting the government down over two hundred and thirty four miles at wall. It's not substantive. It's political. Okay. We get they hate Donald Trump. If anyone in America had missed that point that they really really really don't like this, man. There yelling and screaming, and we has made that a bundle clear. But just because you hate somebody. Doesn't mean you should shut the government down. I voted to keep this government open right now today, the Democrats are filibustering funding for the government. Let me tell you something else. A Senator from Colorado in dispute we had a whole colloquy with a Senator from Louisiana. The Senator from Mississippi the Senator for the last about funding, the coastguard did you notice? Madam President in that entire. Bellowing speech. The words coastguard whenever uttered. Not once. What Senator Kennedy asked this body to do was pass a clean Bill to pay the paychecks of the coast guard Senator Kennedy's Bill? Does it mention whether you like what are not mentioned in medieval wall or any other kind of? Well, it's simply says pay the coastguard. Yes. No. Every Republican agrees pay the coast guard right now, it's not fair to treat the coastguard differently than we're treating the army and navy and marines and air force. Senator from Colorado didn't address that. Because it is indisputable is the fact that the reason that didn't pass right now. Is because the democratic leader stood up and Nate an objection. And by implication, every democratic Senator presumably agrees with the fact that the Senator from Colorado didn't say, yes, we should fund the coastguard, and you know, what my leader was wrong. When he held the paychecks of the coast guard men and women hostage. Because he wants to win a political fight with the president. And by the way, I would note to the Senator of Colorado. It's not the end of the world to stand up to your party's leader. Some of us have a history of having done. So in the past. We're now in the longest government shutdown in history shutdown needs to end the American people want it to end. We also need to secure the border. And Madam President. I have to say the contrast between the two parties, it could not be clear. The president has repeatedly said he wants to negotiate and he wants to compromise. He said he's willing to meet in the middle. He hasn't insisted on. Every mile a border wall. He asked for he hasn't insisted on every single dollar a border security. He said, let's meet and compromise. Republicans on this side of the chamber of said, let's compromise in the middle and the position of Senate Democrats, they will not negotiate. They will not compromise period. So their position how many miles of wall can be built zero to one yet. When it comes to negotiating their position is not an inch of law can be built, even though we the Democrats already voted for three hundred and fifty miles out why. Because Donald Trump's president. That is an extreme and radical position. And look I understand folks watching at home, it's hard to tell you. You're reading the news. It seems like both parties are bickering. It's hard to tell what's happening, particularly because on the on the Senate floor. There's a lot of procedural mumbo jumbo. If you wanna understand what's going on the exchange between Senator Kennedy and Senator Schumer illustrates at all. Senator Kennedy's building one thing. And one thing only paid the salaries of the men and women of the coast guard it didn't touch any other issue. Every Republican agrees with that Bill. And the Democrats objected and said we will not pay the Goa coast guard had they not objective. We could put that Bill on the president's desk today, and they could get their paychecks right now. That is emblematic of the approach of Senate Democrats. And so. The Senator from Colorado. Stopped screaming at me. He then engaged in a bit of historical retrospective, Ted Cruz of Texas about the great framers of our constitution. That I enjoy it. Then that I very much agree with. I'm someone who's spent a lifetime devoted to the constitution. I am inspired by the framers who gave us this extraordinary Democratic Republic. The Senator from Colorado called for members of this body to aspire. To be more. Like this men and women that gave us this country gave us this Republic. If you can keep it. Benjamin Franklin put it. And I concur with that. And what I would urge the Senator from Colorado. Is to reach out to his democratic colleagues and council compromise. I am urging my colleagues on this side to do the same. And the difference is the Republicans are willing to compromise have offered to compromise. And in fact, just now sought to pay the coastguard and the democratic position is no, no, no we object. That is partisan. It is extreme. And it is not behavior. That would bring pride to the framers of our constitution. I hope that this body can do better. Senator from Colorado democrat, Michael Bennet, Texas for having this conversation. I don't think I was yelling. But I'll go watch the taper screaming at you. I also have never call anybody on this floor a liar. As you did somebody twenty fifteen on this floor, but the ethics of all of this. But I just wanted to say two things one. I appreciate the fact that you at least seem to be accepting the fact that every democrat who is here on that immigration Bill twenty thirteen voted for voted for the three hundred fifty miles of all that you're talking about. You didn't vote for that Bill or the Senator from Texas didn't vote for that Bill Nye soom, you had your reasons by the way, I wouldn't presume to think what you would think about it as a border as a person from border state. I say stop far from the border. And we see the effects ill real for good immigration in my state. But I do know this there were two senators from a border state. State of Arizona who were on that gang Bill. With whom I sat day after day after day negotiating the provision for months, and they didn't have to just. Vote for the Bill we're against it. But they had to go home to Arizona. John McCain and Jeff flake didn't explain why they support. And why was the right thing to do for Zona? Which is a Senator from Texas knows is a border state. So the idea that there's a problem to be solved here because Democrats in this chamber for open borders is false. As the Senator indicated. The second point is. Senator from Texas reference. Ben Franklin Franklin was standing outside the steps of constitution hall and somebody who was passing by this while they're writing constitution. Said mr. Mr. Franklin, what kind of government, are you creating a monarchy or Republic? That was the question. And is a Senator Cruz has said his answer was a Republican if you can keep it. If you can keep it. His injury was not a Republican. It was a Republic if you can keep it. Because he knew that the words written in the constitution. We're going to preserve themselves. Exercising democratic self government. A Democratic Republic. Would require generations. Of women and men not just in this chamber. But as citizens. And

"That new hope Senator Kennedy. Thank you. Senator Bill Cassidy arrived at this point in the discussion. Welcome center Cassidy, and I know he went through. Pains planes and automobiles to get here. Whether elementary and actually quite challenging, and the fact that you came to our meeting, and I know you're not in session, we greatly. Appreciate your presence. I'll give you your introduction shortly since Mr. Frazier is in the middle of talking about his point of view about patients, and we've gone through in fact, along the panel five seven minutes of summarizing, your thoughts. So I hope that you'll be next. So so I was just saying that we're again at the forefront of tremendous advances in immuno oncology at Merck. We are studying art drug, which is one of many immunotherapy drugs like he chewed right now, we're studying it in thirty tumor types. We have evidence of activity in twenty-five. It's already been approved in eight two types for twelve indications. And when we talk about the benefit of this drug, we're not just talking about patients living longer by a couple of months in a recent study, we were able to show that if you add this drug to the standard of care that you reduce the risk of death. Ron. Non squamous non small cell lung cancer by fifty percent, and we're not talking about people living two to three more months. We know from the data that we have so far that patients are living much longer. Seventy percent of those patients are living at one year. And we haven't even reached the median for overall survival. So that is a significant breakthrough. The question becomes how do we now? Think about the value that that drug which has significant incremental costs when you add into system has four society. And I would argue to the point that Gail just made the first question is what is that incremental cost versus the incremental benefit to that patient. We're talking about unprecedented survival advantages. There was a discussion earlier on about if you list all the cancer drugs over the past twenty five or thirty years. Many of. Didn't cause people to live very long. I think we need to look at individual therapies and make a judgment about what that really means. I I know that I have to close right now, and I'll just make one more point. And that is when you think about it holistically. There was a study recently from the university of Chicago that said reducing cancer death rates by ten percent. And US would be worth roughly four point four trillion dollars an economic value to current and future generations. So I come back to the point that if we're going to have a serious discussion, we have to look at cost holistically. We can't just look at drug prices in isolation. I heard the comment earlier that drug prices are fifty percent of cancer cost in this country. Well, actor cans on what you mean by drug prices. There are data that say it's twenty percent, but with hospital markups that can be five hundred percent on the manufacturer's price. It gets. Fifty cassette. So it's really important for us to have these kind of high level discussions without focusing on specific. Thank you. Thank you. I think this is we set to say show a really great conversation. But let me welcome. Dr Senator Bill Cassidy, who's a senior United States standard her from Louisiana serving since two thousand fifteen he's a train gastroenterologist and he previously served in the house of representatives from two thousand nine hundred fifteen and the Louisiana.
