The Trump 'clown-iverse' continues
"Another crazy waken US politics. Remember this. Now back they sure you. In fact, let people know Senator I'm not going to answer the question. Because the question. Just as radical left would you out Mason who is on your list? Not. Surprisingly, the media responds to the debate especially Donald Trump's plan rudeness it was overwhelmingly hostile wasn't it? Couple of days later, trump was diagnosed with code. After mixed messages about health trump got in a car and run around waving to supporters. Then he was released from hospital he returned to the White House and he went on one of those twitter rants among other things. He told the American people not covid even though he's doctor has said, he may not entirely be out of the woods yet. So, what does all this main awake after the debate and only weeks before the US presidential election and what does it mean for America's image in the world? For answers. Let's turn to a leading. American Common Taito a conservative who says he's quite sick of living in what he calls Donald Trump's clown verse or drama drivers over believers or I can't believe these guys actually the president. Verse. Brad. Stevens is a columnist with the New York. Times, and formally with the Wall Street Journal, where he won a Pulitzer Prize for opinion writing I should just warn you all that he comes to us via a scratchy on in Manhattan. Bread. Welcome back to the Shire. Back Be Sydney. Well, the rate is of the New York Times I can't wait to see the end of trump you yourself are prominent never trump you your New York Times columnist this week you say you was trump will give us just a few reasons why I wish a speedy recovery. I think to wish ill. To reduced to his level on that, of course, it's been. Core of the trump EST project which has been to based political norms and diminish moral standards. So why would I wanNA join trump along along that road a bit for more narrowly political reasons. I. Wish it well, because God forbid he were to die before the election, he would go down so to speak a undefeated. And what I hope is that a resounding electoral defeat in November and I'm speaking of the conservative. will put an end not only to the trump presidency, but she trumpism as a an ideological force. In American politics. Now. You rauch trump. The man needs to leave and lose because it's the only way the trump cult might die it unsubscribe to the cult trump obviously. Is that why you among that never trump was. Are exerting very little influence on the political right in America these days. You know I I hear that and. I was struck by the disconnect between my supposed- irrelevance and irrelevance might never trump fellow travelers. And the fact that the president. Describing us as human scum the conservative press keeps denouncing us if we're really quite so irrelevant, you think they want to go so much energy. Truth. Election that is probably going to turn on a small number of a relatively small number of voters in swing states, and so I think we're not quite so relevant have some people allege and stressed that never trump is include many prominent conservatives lock yourself William Kristol George Will Max Booed David. Brooks. David. From and Applebaum. Jennifer from there among others. But you see your critics would respond inside the Elat media consensus with there on the left or the never trump conservatives they've been consistently against trump wrought from that said. And Nights. I haven't you guys foul to understand what got America trump and indeed Britain brexit in the first place. You know. I'm not quite sure I agree with the analysis. Is and came about in part because there was unquestionably failure of the mainstream conservative establishment, which I guess I was park in recognizing some of the populous tides in American politics. I think it candidate for a much more specifically than which was a luxury crisis. In Europe, but went unchecked help create brexit brexit had knock on effects in the United States. As well, and and I would add a larger point com, which did you those who are listening here are left in any healthy democracy need a mortally healthy a conservative movement. There's no democracy that doesn't have a conservative side of politics. and. So even our adversaries are opponents politically should want us to succeed want a conservative movement that is optimistic that is inclusive that is in favor of growth, and that favors the open society and the free world. That's the way I can feel, okay my politics, they remained unchanged from the days before trump and hopefully will remain unchanged. Have said analysis requires us to listen attentively to individual voters tell us about your subject to Chris you right about her and you'll recent York Times call him. She's a registered Democrat and a trump voting lesbian store manager from Manhattan, and she fits none of the cultural demographic stereotypes of the trump by Brett tell us about Chris. Chris is a woman who is well educated. Well traveled and as you mention, she is She's gay and she the trump supporter and I one of the things that I I occasionally will be with my column in The New York Times. Is. Essentially. handed over not not fully. But at least partially handed over to Voice of that I think the predominantly liberal leadership of the Times. Need to could here because What she observed is that at least until the pandemic, her savings accounts or pension or private pension account for the United States a call four one ks. Arising smart. The economy was doing better in her view than it had been under Obama and that that's the counted for voters like her as opposed to you know questions about the president's mannerisms or read myths or his coarseness on the world stage and I wrote it Tom for the simple reason that Hillary Clinton would it become president? Her supporters hadn't been so convinced. That it was only a bunch of rednecks Yak. In the middle of the country, we're going to the trump. He is indeed and make the point. She's not an outlaw. She's a red voter in a blue state. My guest is Brit Stevens he's an award winning columnist with the New York Times. And we're talking about. Well, let's be frank. The crazy times in American politics. Let's turn to the debate bridge sixty years ago October nineteen sixty. The World Watch the Kenji Nixon debates we were too young. We went even. We weren't even born. To civilized will informed holly. Intelligent. Courteous Navy combat veterans are both in their forties. And yet six decades later. The world's being shocked and horrified. By the time of the first presidential debate these to all men engaging in A. An angry angry exchange is the best the both major parties can offer the American people sixty how's it come to these? You know when I was when my wife I ever watched, my wife has his permanent immigrants United States actually came a citizen. BECCA very. And I have to turn to her engine apologize for bringing her country because it was mortifying fortunately, the United States is a lot more than its leader. But debasement of politics has been long the making and it's one of many reasons why I just can't accept trump as president even though can time-to-time agreeing with his policies because he is he has brought the state about politics shoot a level that. Be chargeable to describe it as over Banana Republic and and you know onto. The Kennedy Nixon debates that I am are well enough to follow up one of the great issues that debate. The status of key Moi in Matsue, he's a little time with his island off the coast of mainland. Just unimaginable that piece to standard standard-bearers would have that kind of exchange although I. Walked by what Action Nowhere Chemo in that. So actually are. Yes you said that Donald Trump in that debate was channeling Alec Baldwin Channeling Donald Trump and yet he was holy himself. I get all that but is a more wrong with America than Donald, trump, Brad Stevens yet they're into lot more. You know I think Adam Smith Donald trump is a symptom of of some of that ruined but in seeking to an Australian audience I think it's worth remembering and reminding this audience that there could.

"Tom shillue back with the Tom shillue show. The question. I have for you. Who is more? Involved in a cult of personality the cult of anti-trump. Or the cult of Trump because George Conway thinks to Republican a personality cult I happen to believe he has joined he voluntarily joined a anti-trump cult, and he's reciting all their talking points. And he's doing it because he's personally uncomfortable with the president's personality. Eight three three eight five two four eight six six eight three three eight five two four, Tom. Who's in the cult? Kevin in Albany, Georgia. I love your show. And you started all everything said about it at your lead up here that person is the one in the cold and the key word that lets everybody know what they're dealing with is when that person that you described as many others, they say that they are acting on their feelings, then we know exactly where they're at the rest of us out here. We're not the ones in the coal. We're not acting on our feelings we elected the president not because we were lovers personality where you're lectured him because he's a politician. He's not talking or acting like a politician. Yeah. And you look at the other people in the cult William Kristol and the Steve Schmidt. The guy who ran McCain's campaign day are now they're fully committed. They're obsessed with Trump. That's all they talk about is Donald Trump's personality. I haven't heard Steve Schmidt talk about policy. I haven't heard William Kristol say anything interesting about conservatism because he's obsessed with one man Donald Trump his personality. That's right. And and as long as they focus on his personality, they're they're very likely because you know, he says a lot of things that they don't like they're very likely to be uncomfortable. But the rest of us out here on ever even in your personal. It's so it's such a freedom that you experience when you're not concerned about what other people think, and it's interesting because some of the most avant garde people in fashion or music, or whatever once you forge your own path. And you're not worried if your hair is very. Bizarre. Whatever it makes you stand out or whatever it's very free will us as people out here voting for these politicians once you get past the fact that when he said the things that he intended to accomplish in Washington, drain the swamp, whatever. Well, the swamp is not gonna go quietly so whenever they blow up, and they say that they got their feelings hurt about what he says. And they're trying to focus on that. And like you mentioned just a moment ago. Like, Bill Kristol and others. They do not want to talk about his policy. They just wanna talk about personality, and what he saying unprecedented this behavior. We've never seen anything like this out of the oval up. Yeah. We know that Kevin thanks for the call Kevin in Albany, Georgia eight three three eight five two four eight six six is the number who's in the cult the anti-trump people or the Trump people? He's not the first person George Conway to use the term personality cult. People have the they have a way of projecting their own feelings on other people. That's.

"Kind of nationalist emphasis that's really oriented towards a more exclusive notion of citizenship. So punishing and and eliminating people who are seen as foreign threats within the body politic. And there is no coherent. I think foreign policy anymore that the United States actually is pursuing an and you then also have this very thorough -tarian wing. Of the Democratic Party. That's, you know, fully embracing the CIA the NSA the FBI James Komi tweeting over the weekend, and I'm quoting Democrats, please, please don't lose your minds and rushed to the socialist left this president and his Republican party are counting on you to do exactly that America's great middle want sensible balanced, ethical leadership. Yeah, it's it's hilarious to get strategic advice from someone like James Comey who clearly, you know, has has shown himself to be a man of probity and wisdom in his own his own management of the security apparatus. It's really bizarre this sort of way in which in American politics. These second ax, you know, people think they can always have a second act and they think they can always fail upwards. And it does seem to be born out. I mean, I mean, look at the people out here who are taking a serious commentators. These sort of centrist either never Trump Republicans or national security Democrats. I mean, people like William Kristol and max boot, and James Komi either an MSNBC or on the Washington Post or being re tweeted by tens of thousands of people. I mean, these are the people who, in many respects produce the kind of disasters in American politics over the last twenty years. I mean, they, they advocated for the Iraq invasion. They supported the mass surveillance of the American population. They also wanted to Ron to be obliterated. I mean, you would think that the never Trumpers quote unquote, like crystal would be celebrating Trump's screaming, caps, tweet, implying nuclear annihilation is on the horizon if Iran so much as says, another thing that he doesn't like, well, honestly, this is the thing that is really scary for many of us or for for me. You know, I think that when Trump is finally out of the picture, what. L- the realignment look like. I think we do so much revolving around what Trump does, what Trump does, what Trump does and what Trump says. And and I think we all are deranged by that. And of course Trump is self-contradictory and he's, he's shooting from the hip and he's he's not well informed. He operates on impulse and a few basic principles. You know, the basic principle of kind of survival of the fittest and that the nation state is like a corporation involved in kind of struggle with various other kinds of competitors. Every relationship is transactional. Every agreement is temporary and provisional felt watching the press conference with Putin that a lot of what was going on there. It was just that Trump's kind of crushing on Putin. You know, he's sort of one of those moments when he's a bit like I, I wish I could be more like this guy. You know, I wish I wish I could execute journalists. I wish I could be sort of commanding this kind of apparatus and have this sort of Jack. Booted persona. But the truth is he can't, and he's flailing about he's being propped up by the GOP and Fox News..

"A tweet from icon a conservative columnist william kristol saying he trusts that mike pence has prepared a transfer of power draft document based on the twentyfifth amendment how littoralis william kristol being without tweet and how much is he as you know and never trump conservative from the beginning just taking broad shots at the president the latter um the the likelihood of trumping um removed from office by the twentyfifth amendment is very low it's it's it's kind of a i i'm thinking about it at a broader way to to address the president's fitness but um as you said to two to use the twentythird amendment requires the majority of the cabinet and the vice president to vote for that he's not fit physically or mentally you to occupy the office um look at the photo ops from camp david over the weekend it was trump flanked by a large number of his cabinet members with the vice president standing next to him there's no sign that dave lost confidence in him or that they would turn on him right now so um the question i looked at when i was reading the article is is this just a fantasy of the hard core ever trumpers like bill crystal and liberal fantasists who want any reason to get rid of donald trump or is there something more here and i think there is something more here in that democratic senators and congressmen and one republican senator met with business psychiatrist to to get a fuller understanding of picture of the dangerousness of donald trump and what his actions means for the future of our country and she her findings are that he's unraveling under the pressure of the job and it's going to get worse and so i think that what's more interesting than will mike pence and the cabinet turn on trump is what is the what appeals thinking oh like how seriously or they taking um their concerns about his fitness for office um well i wanted to add yet you're you play that clip of tom pale defending the president um you know i've noticed this is a common theme that that trump surrogates do when he's under attack during the campaign when he was under attack for um you know accused of more than a dozen women of unwanted sexual advances in the stalls ivanka came out to talk about her personal experience as his daughter promoting her in the company treating her as an equal.
