Trump panned over reports he called US war dead 'losers'
"In the wake of an explosive report claiming the president insulted members of the military who sacrificed their lives for this nation. In the report, The Atlantic magazine says the president privately referred to fallen American troops as quote suckers and losers Moments ago, the president said the report is a hoax and called Americans in uniform heroes. Here's CBS's Wegener at the White House. Chip. In addition to calling that article a hoax, saying it was made up by fake sources, the president called the Atlantic Dying magazine that's just trying to gain some sort of relevance. Many members of the military and their loved ones don't see it that way. There was a totally fake story. President. Trump adamantly denied claims he called fallen U. S soldiers, losers and suckers for getting killed. It was a terrible thing that somebody could say the kind of things and especially to make. The president allegedly made the comments while in France in 2018, as part of his reason for not visiting a cemetery near Paris, where American troops are buried. According to the report. Mr Trump cancelled the trip because he feared his hair would become dishevelled in the rain. 10 sources 10 Went on the record debunking these lies. The White House insists the cemetery visit was canceled due to weather but backlash to the bombshell story brewed quickly. My son, Matthew. It is not a loser. Gold star families rebuked the president in a new ad and retired major general Paul Eaton and posted this direct message. You're no Patriot. I tell you about a patriot. My father was killed in Vietnam. The article also said that when Senator John McCain died, president, Trump told senior staffers were not going to support that loser's funeral. Mr Trump insisted, never called McCain reserved, but he has a long history of publicly criticizing the late senator. He's a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren't captured. Okay. The president also claimed that he was proud to honor McCain's death in 2018. But former Trump Administration official Miles Taylor wrote. That's not true. You were angry that D H S notified federal buildings to lower the flags for Senator McCain. I would know because your staff called and told me

Filmmaker Barry Levinson on Ukraine scandal
"We have an email from Oscar winning director and screenwriter. Barry Levinson. Who writes if this hearing was a fictional oh piece of material it would be presented in a totally different manner? One of the democratic players would ask this question. How is it possible? That president trump was looking into corruption in in Ukraine. Suddenly he is crimefighter has the president has has the president ever tried to end corruption anywhere at any time in his his life over the years he's been found guilty of stealing from his own charity. Also the president has been found guilty of running fake university and stealing money from people who believed in him. The president has paid off women because of his sexual aggressive behavior. Now out of the blue. He wants to clean up corruption in Ukraine not Russia where Putin has killed off opposition players poisoning them in far off countries. President trump has no real problem with the Saudi prince. NBS having his butcher's chop up a Washington Post Post reporter not a real problem or turkeys aggression against Kurds not a big problem but the Ukraine is corrupt. That needs to change. Are we supposed to believe this. Donald Trump wants to clean up corruption. Starting with Biden's son. In Ukraine the Democrats have not yet emphasized this absurdity at the center of the Republican defensive. Donald Trump might that moment. Come in the house. Judiciary Committee impeachment hearings or art in the impeachment trial in the United States. Senate we are joined now by one of the jurors in the possible impeachment trial of Donald J trump if he is impeached by the House of Representatives. Senator Amy Klobuchar is a Democrat from Minnesota and member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. She is also a candidate for president of the United States. Senator and it's because you're candidate for President United States Florida. I believe you have all you already have the strength but have built up the strength to deal with the kind of frustration. Australian that Barry Levinson is feeling and people all over the country my feeling about this movie person. He knows that truth has become stranger than fiction. I think makes that point. The second thing yesterday member is you can't that long of a question would take your time. The third thing is I think that Adam Schiff I was trying to focus and did a very good job of this on what was in front of him and I think these arguments will be made later but remember this phase of this was gathering offering me evidence from career diplomats career military. I will never forget. Seeing Fiona Hill today I saw snippets of it of course and just her STOIC STOIC nature and the thought of her my favorite story that I read today about her was when she was a little girl in school and some boy behind her set her pigtails on fire and she doused it out with their own hands there. She was and she was focused on what was before her. And that was what Russia did the Ukraine didn't do and I learned from going to Ukraine twice now and once with Senator McCain and Graham I mean Russia tried to influence as as we know in a big way Ukrainian elections they put up a puppet and not only that they invaded their country an annex Crimea so this this thought that it was Ukraine that was the bad actor is absurd and I was really glad that you pointed this out. It's not to say they don't have problems in their country with corruption option but I loved how she explained today that for the president corruption in this case was code word for going after getting dirt on by I they had a different introduction for this segment tonight until I got this email just minutes before the show and what what I thought it captured was the kind of viewer frustration. That there is out. They're in watching this and just to clarify we know that in a courtroom. That wouldn't be admissible if if Donald Trump is on trial for ex. You couldn't bring up all these other things you know that. Art The About his life but this is a different arena. Would we hear something like that said for example in the Judiciary Committee when they're considering impeachment or could that be said that kind of thing be said in the Senate impeachment trial. This is example of evidence because the fact that In this case he was allegedly that corruption crimefighter and when you have other countries and other things that happened including the murder of journalists Jamal Kashogi he showed no care Really absurd relevant. I would think it would be but I think again a lot of this is going to depend pen and what our Republican colleagues do and this is their moment to decide. Are they going to put their country first or not. What would your reaction to Mitt Romney Susan Collins and others having lunch with the president today it disappoints me It's legal or anything like that. I could see if they were going over there on a major issue. That of course would be fine but instead this is what's happening and I just hope that they listened to the evidence and that they remember what this is really about. It's putting private interest partisan interests in front of our

"We will continue with our. Summary of the news regarding what's going on in in Florida with the recounts here. I wanna go to Arizona here for a second. I teased a couple of times in the first hour of the of the program here and Arizona is a puzzlement. Well, it's not that's the province. Not a puzzlement whatsoever. To me. Here's the situation. Let me I set it up by describing as the state of Barry Goldwater, folks, it wasn't that long ago. Are really this is painful to remember this stuff. It wasn't that thirty years when I moved to California in nineteen Eighty-four Rinaldi's Magnus was just getting too. He set to run for election. I moved not Tober of nineteen Eighty-four to Sacramento. His second term campaign was underway. Of course. Republicans. Say they owned the state of California. But. They had held the office of governor for years. Remember names, Pete Wilson and George Luke maye. Republicans were a major major factor in the state of California. That's just thirty years ago in one generation California is now gone. Literally gone. There isn't. Doesn't seem any way that Republicans will ever be a majority situation out there. Things can change overnight. I understand, but this has been systemic and one of the reasons for this one of the reasons is demographics. And finally just the cumulative effect of years and years of illegal immigration. When was Simpson Mazzola Simpson. Mazzola was the granting of amnesty generically three million illegal immigrants that was nineteen eighty six. Simpson Mazzola was the names of the two sponsors of the Bill one and a house wanted today in the Senate, but it was basically Ted Kennedy's Bill and Reagan signed it. Because it was considered Republicans had to do this to show their big heartedness, the Republicans in show that they were not not at all discriminatory against minorities. Why block same same garbage? And they promise this'll be it after this granted amnesty. We would tighten the border security, and we would make sure that we would get a handle on all of these illegals in. A course it was as big a lie as if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. It was as big a y as if you like your health plan, you can keep your health plan. It was as big ally as never had sex with that woman, not a single time ever. California. Thirty years ago. Was a reliable Republican state with Republican influences in the state in terms of economics state legislation. And I remember when I got there nineteen Eighty-four that the left was just intensifying things like climate change was just starting and back, then it was the the spotted owl and forestation was the big focus of militant environmentalism your couldn't cut down on the trees because the spotted owl. You couldn't do anything. You couldn't they tried to put the timber industry out of business. You couldn't cut down a single tree were spotted owl might spend ten minutes on it. I was basically up in Humboldt county in northern northern California. But it was back. Then it we're laughing at him. We're laughing at these coax these left wing liberal kooks. The name of the group back then was called earth first, and they would put nails and spikes in trees that were to be harvested. So that when the trees were harvested, those spikes and nails would become like shrapnel and injured the people. In the business of down the tree isn't. Of course, the beauty of a tree is what you can do with it. Piano house and for every tree we cut down. We replant five it's been it's been policy both government and private sector anyway, thirty years ago, eras the same way, the state of Barry Goldwater, the home state, if you will of the conservative forebear in American electoral politics. Well, arizona. I don't know if it's gone yet. But boy is it close Arizona has been known as a Republican state. Yeah. But what kind of Republican state while it's been known as a Bush McCain Republican state, meaning pretty moderate Republican, certainly not conservative. That's that's that's. A little bit stream fresh so they've gone moderate Republican rhino and Senator McCain as you know, was a big proponent of amnesty. Senator McCain Senator McCain Republican, but was his state Senator McCain ran the Republican party out there Arizona, which he was the Victor nothing odd about it. I'm just saying this is the kind of republicanism. We've had it has not been a combative Republican has not been conservative. It basically tried to find a peaceful way to coincide with the left, which is not possible. But McCain remember the media, the left wing media McCain thought was his base. He thought that the left-wing media was going to be any side if he ever got the presidential nomination. So here we are. I really jumping Farber. But I just want to construct the history of just thirty years ago. That's a generation California. And aaron. Zona were solidly not just Republican. But conservative. Now, we skip forward to two thousand eighteen we've got a Senate contest between a woman named Kirstin cinema. Who is a Marxist? Can't deny that to some people. She's attractive. Okay matters. But she's a Marxist. She is an unapologetic Marxist and leftist. She even has hippie culture. Identities. She's. Openly stated that she's not very proud of Arizona, and particularly like the people there. Her opponent, Martha mcsally, perhaps just as a citizen Pitta me of what you would want in your neighborhood in your church in your state your county mean if you're looking at. Public achievements public public accomplishments, and so forth and mimic Sally is it. She is what decades ago? The objective of politics, the fine and produce quality. Moral high value. Citizens. Represent the best of America. She was at she's the most decorated in the first on most highly decorated, first female fighter pilot. I believe in the air force. So you have that pedigree. Which is unavailable up against a hippy dippy Marxist who is. Just all over the place. Intellectually and emotionally. And this candidate loses. Handily? This should have been a wipeout MC Sally should have wiped the floor with this candidate any candidate like cinema. Except for today. Now, one thing about MC Sally. She's as moderate Republican. If you look at the governor's race there Doug Ducey, the governor in Arizona, Republican got in the final count still out there two hundred fifty thousand more votes than Martha mcsally. How does that happen? How the two hundred and fifty thousand Republicans who vote for Doug Ducey not also vote for the Republican Senate candidate. I don't know who they voted for they crossed over voted for cinema. But they didn't vote from excel how how do you explain that? Why don't know? But there has to be there has to be an explanation. I think the answer is found in moderate versus conservative. That's just me. But put very simply. That this woman Kirstin cinema could win in Arizona against. One of the most impeccably attractive candidates has got a lot of people shellshocked. The real reason. It's happening is the same things happened in California. There is a porous border and people illegal immigrants have been flooding into Arizona and all of the south west. For the last thirty years, even after Simpson, Mario Mazzola. There has not been serious effort to shut it down. In fact, the Republican leader in the state of Arizona, Senator McCain was all four amnesty comprehensive immigration reform, grabbing eleven million minimum eleven million more illegals. Amnesty for their crimes being here illegally. The Bush administration, George W same thing. Same. This is what it has wrought. The demographics of the country are changing drastically. It's not all Mexican immigration. But Mexico is facilitating they're doing everything they can to facilitate who ever is walking and driving through their country to get here illegally. Now, if you start addressing these facts like I'm doing here. You start talking about this the history of California, the history of Arizona, and you point out why these massive changes, and by the way, we're not talking about people arriving here who wished to assimilate and become part of the unique American culture that is not what is happening legal immigration is where that happens that illegal immigration is not about that. At all. It's about something else entirely. You know, we're different folks than European comes the American left wants to be like Europe. But we are vastly different from Europe in a whole host of ways. And one of the big ones is we don't have a singular nationality. We have a singular culture or had. We were a melting pot United around a particular and specific culture, a freedom culture that was expressed in our founding documents declaration of independence and constitution. That is what brought people here. It was a distinct and unique American culture where the citizen was first. And the government was second. And we became a melting pot from people all over the world who brought their cultures here. But they wanted to become Americans. To become part of this freedom culture. That has its roots. In the belief in limited government. The people coming into our country. Now, do not share that culture, nor do they desire to become a part of it. They have their own culture, and they're bringing it with them. They have their own language, and they're bringing it when they have their own traditions, and they're bringing them at its setting up and they're balkanization. They're not a scintillating Europe. Course as individual countries, which are based on. Singular. Nationalities Europe does not have a singular culture. But we do. And we always have had. And if that culture breaks down if that distinct identity if creates things like American exceptionalism if all of that breaks down, then so goes American culture with it. And that is precisely what has happened. This is not a racist statement, even though people saying things like this. The first reaction left has is to accuse people speaking as I am right now being racist. But it really goes to the point of can we have one country. Can we have one country that splits and dissect this great American culture into many others that end up competing that don't have much in common? And whose primary impact is to dilute and watered down this great American culture, which is exactly what is happening. It is what has happened in California. It is what has happened in Arizona. It is happening in Texas, North Carolina one election cycle away from being essentially an entire state that you will not be able to distinguish from Manhattan. Politically and India logically, and all of these places that I'm describing used to be majority dependable Repub if Texas goes that's thirty eight electoral votes, and combined with New York, and California and Illinois. Well. You can see. It is. It's highly scary. And it's happening right in front of our eyes. It's been happening for thirty years. And it is the mkx Sally and whatever race hearing a reverse about their from from summer the next Sally and cinema race. I think exposes our illustrates this. I know times change, and you can't stay locked in the past but traditions are traditions, and right and wrong is right and wrong or certain things which are timeless and just telling you here folks that you don't have to go back very far and some of that Kirstin cinema would not have had a prayer of winning anything in Arizona. And yet here she is victorious it's because the demographic shift it's because well, there's a whole bunch of reasons I've been through most of them here, and I've got to take a break clock, dictates it. So we'll take that.

"On the, Michael Medved Show. There was, a tweet from Megan McCain Senator McCain's daughter she writes my family is deeply appreciated of all who the love. And generosity you have shown us during this past. Year thank you for all your continued support and prayers. We could not have made it this far without you you've given us strength. To carry on and speaking of strength to carry on, I, know how proud Senator McCain. Was of his daughter Megan Is but. He was proud of her when I, say past tense. Only because, of her service on the view when she was on the view and just think concluded some of her work. On the gotta confess I don't watch the view. Ever but she will be on the new season good. Because seeing some of the clips of Megan McCain taking it to Whoopie in. Joy Behar it's just a pleasure and said clear strong, conservative Pro-american Logical voice By the way like like her father who has just announced at, his decision he has discontinuing his treatment for brain cancer and tributes are pouring in There's one clip he gave this amazing last speech on the Senate floor which was I think, we'll go down as his greatest. Public address but one of the things he said resonated particularly with me because of the work that, I'm in here Senator McCain on the Senate floor I hope we can again rely on on our need to cooperate on our dependence on each other learn how to trust each other again and by. So doing better, serve the people who elected us stop listening to the bombastic, loudmouths on the radio and television and the internet to hell with them They don't want anything done for the public good our incapacity is their livelihood let's trust each other Let's return to regular order we've been spending our wheels on too many. Important issues because we keep trying to find a way to win without help from across the aisle that's an approach that's been employed by both sides mandating legislation, from the top down. Without any, support from the other side with all the. Parliamentary. Maneuvers that requires we're getting nothing done my friends we're getting nothing done and he went on look the problem here it. Seems to me is to. Acknowledge that every disagreement Is not a life and death matter Disagreements important and. Yes it's important to stick to principles Thomas Jefferson said his. First inaugural address in. Eighteen o one we. Are all Republicans we are all. Federalists we have called by different names brethren of the same principle Let us Let us go to your calls to Jim in Carson California. Jim you're on the Michael Medved Show Good afternoon Michael No just a. Couple of things I think Senator McCain's decision to stop the cancer treatment is in keeping with. The Braves individually he's been all. Of his, life The second, thing is that I I really believe looking back that. Here's lost to Barack Obama was a critical point in our history, because, if he had won that. Election we would not have had two terms of Bronco baba and I really believe that we. Would not a sad Donald Trump And I can only think about the way things might have been different if he had won the, election no different in foreign. Policy certainly different with the economy and the recovery I agree with you on everything you've, said appreciate it Michael in. Cleveland Michael you're on the Michael Medved Show Good. Afternoon I'm, like your. Comment on this, yes, John McCain is a war hero And a Senator for thirty forty fifty years. And a. Great statesman but I'm looking how. He. Is ending his service to America He admir- opinion should resign He has not voted okay you know, today's, not, today for it Michael I I understand. And I hear, your argument and I again I believe that if his resignation were absolutely necessary to confirm Justice Cavanaugh he probably would. Because he loves his country but John McCain is. Never given up a fight. He just that's not him and I think the idea of quitting on a Senate term to which he was elected was. Not part of his makeup Meanwhile quick word from relief factor this came in from Amanda I had to had severe back pain for over a month I had tried. Everything, I could think of and.

Need a black spirit yeah we'll go there and here's, what I don't like, fake I don't like having to go there to stop him from becoming mayor of the city and the principal k., of you still listening understand this if you run for. Mayor The gloves. Are completely off you. Have stepped into an arena That I know, your background your. History who you own money to your bankruptcies your military career every issue you have, had will be fair Dame wants you step into that. Arena and I know how to bring it. Front and center this is. What I have done for years So so him going down to become an apologist for. That, way of life. Will not do and I won't allow. It to happen on my watch. But what I called you about is about the situation in Washington with the. Orange, man with bad. Hair now you know I was. Very active in politics back when Nixon was impeached oh when Nixon resigned Nixon didn't do half. Of the stuff this man has been. Accused of he didn't do half. Of it and yet, and, still he, had to leave, right and really fair, he didn't, do much at all it was, him being kind of complicit with the potential of. Maybe engaging in a cover up that was all, it took for them I start impeachment proceedings in, him he, was extremely popular extremely you know people, like him even. Though some people you know most of us didn't like it but both of these, incidents started Zack same way and this is why I. Like when you say look at the history Watergate and this mess now with the, with the Russians Watergate started with a burglary a simple. Burglary and it ended up with the attorney general everybody else in a whole bunch a mess so my. Thing, is very, simple you now have all of these people that have been. On, these separate charges. Dislike of Watergate that have been convicted. Or have pleaded guilty or under. Indictment they just announced and you you're stationed announced it to thank God for. You, for getting information. Out to the black community that. The c o of the Trump foundation has been granted immunity Yup a lot of people don't. Understand what that means that man has. Worked there for decades he worked. For Trump's father he, knows, where the, money is where, the bodies are and, they know, how he misappropriated charitable contributions for, his own personal benefit he knows that too and. This argument by him and hunt and Dunkin HANA, that this is absolutely Unrelated has absolute has absolutely no merit. In. History and I'm gonna say this very quickly he wants to be a gangster that he. Needs to look at alka. Poem as much as alka Paul did as many people, as he killed as much liquor see so he ended up dying in. Prison he ended up. In prison for not paying his income tax they could get him on yeah So you know we can go ahead and say what he. Wants to, do but I'm I hope. That our people people, of color black folks, whatever we'll stand up and say, hey we're tired of this you. Either need to, start some hearings up in Washington a we. Need to get rid of a lot of these old people that have been sitting there but thirty and forty years and. Ain't did, nothing and, now circled around a known criminal you know they wouldn't have did this if it was Obama we'd be looking at we'd be looking at a new a vice president. That was president so you. Know my thing is I, appreciate what you do I love what you do. A love you because you are Tutu. Back and you don't let people mess over black folks so anyway my brother I hope that we. Will bring up the subject of Nixon that everybody will start talking. About the comparisons and see that this.
