Harris is through the Washington post Harris of the post you know. your loving on the campaign trail but he was terrace of the post and not anyone over to politico to create his own independent corrupt Democrat party front groups posing as a newspaper and and that's like that's okay that's all right you know I won't mention his wife and daughter in this because I'm a much to polite for all of that that I love these headlines CNN White House restricted access to trump's calls with Putin and Saudi crown prince do you think that Obama restricted access to the phone calls that he made with foreign leaders ward where they just out on the front doorstep there they are like home delivery in Washington the transcripts of Obama's just start making the transcripts public just start making a public because I want to see the Democrats on the news media but I repeat myself respond to all bombers transcripts with foreign leaders being made public what you guys said you wanted transcripts of the president's calls with foreign leaders made public not that president they would say. yeah how dare but now we got the people on MSNBC responding to president trump's wait. where he's quoting again. pastor Robert Jeffress and Robert Jeffries expressing concern that if the Democrats go through an impeachment over something they read in the paper not high crimes and misdemeanors but all all jammed up stuff and again Adam Schiff is just making things up he's he's saying things that aren't true to his friends in the media likes no fluff against himself and they just sit there and not knowing that it's not true but they don't correct them because they're very very corrupt because like Stephanopoulos is a Democrat party apparatchiks you can Adam Schiff tweeted trump is withholding vital military aid to Ukraine while his personal lawyers seeks help from the Ukrainian government to investigate his political opponents now I mean again Hillary Clinton's campaign got help from putting himself for her political campaign to smear Donald Trump but never mind never mind all that and Jeff is going around saying that the president was coerced saying are trying to convince the president Ukraine to gin up that is to fabricate things on on but none of that is true but if you watch MSNBC for your news which one of our callers earlier today Robert clearly does this is what you get from morning joke the pigeon sisters the circle fast at the lucite block and this is something again maker that Republicans have a responsibility as do all Americans. the president is warning of civil war warning us who is actually calling for political opponents to be arrested for treason of course last week suggesting that that should carry the death penalty so calling for the death of of a political opponents because he doesn't like how they conducted themselves. in hearings last week now I I did no sense of irony it was William weld on this very show with these very hosts just last week who called for president trump to be executed for treason talk about pressure in a foreign country to interfere with and control a U. S. selection it couldn't be clearer and that's not just undermining democratic institutions that is treason treason pure and simple and the penalty for treason under the US code his death that's the only the only. laceration his removal from office. look like a pretty good alternative to you know that that is what I got a plea deal on the not only on that network but on that show one week earlier no sense of irony no memory for anything they have news timers it's like men in black they wipe their memories clear every day and start over again with the Democrat party issued talking points every morning it was just last week on that very show on that channel where they were calling for the execution of the prep not present hasn't called for the execution of anybody but on that very show that called for the execution of the present a week ago and now I just like LSD Alzheimer's brain damage half a brain just amazing amazing stuff and that passes for journalism in America and that's why pastor Jeffries made the reference to very gingerly Hey a civil war like. fracture in the nation. right and then they go he's calling for his opponents to be executed what we're what you're you're very very severely brain damaged Joe Scarborough.

Joe Walsh: Strongly considering primary challenge to Trump
"Donald trump's approval rating among republicans sit somewhere between eighty or ninety percent which is pie although that comes with a bit of an asterisk asterisk which is that trump is driven a lot of people away from identifying as republicans people like michigan congressman justin amash who called for trump's impeachment and who was a republican in good standing but has now switched to being an independent. He's the kind of person who wouldn't show up one of those polls. Here's the fundamental problem. There are a number of self described conservatives who do not like like donald trump but most don't really have any political base or power and that's the problem facing anyone wants to mount a primary challenge the president and the g._o._p. And yet interestingly thinly enough there are people who want to give it a shot anyway for massachusetts governor. William weld is in he has declared he is running now. Former south carolina governor and congressman mark sanford former former illinois congressman and talk show radios joe walsh appear closer during the race and challenging the president and anthony scaramucci says he's going to rustle up a bunch of ex trumpers to take the president on as well ultimately the stakes.

I don't know i guess i'm skeptical optical but i'm seeing all those noises it looks like sanford and walsh will get in scaramucci is trying to rustle up some group of folks. Is there anything here you think well. I mean if you look back back at what happened to president. George herbert walker bush in nineteen ninety-two he did get challenged by pat. Buchanan obviously buchanan's challenge well. I think stronger than any of the people we've been talking about are going to be able to muster against trump did harm him and i think it set him up for ultimate failure in the general election. I think that's what this is. All about. None of these guys that we're talking about are likely to defeat donald trump unless trump goes evan farther off the rails and then we've seen him so far but being able to damage him being able to come at him as walsh might from the right could could have some impact and might dampen

So I feel like conservatives they're making way or putting way too much emphasis all on the steel dossier. First and foremost, I mean, the president was under investigation going back to July twenty sixteen Hillary was under a similar kind of investigation about same person. Doesn't sound right. Like there's a lot going into what Trump said that again, it's completely stupid and conservatives had any head on their shoulders. They dump them at least laughing at the very least. Well, I'll put it this way. He's, he's obviously got the support, plus the lack of any, any major opposition. Former Massachusetts Governor William weld is running. I suspect, former Ohio governor John casick will run and neither would be sufficient to get me to change my vote. So I understand what you're saying.

And Patrick Shanahan doesn't tell right. I don't think at least for this job. He puts the best company around him. Well, first of all, I, I don't know why he ever picked John Bolton because his views and John Bolton's are, are quite diametrically. Opposite, frankly, I'd put my faith in John Bolton a hundred times sooner than I would in somebody who plays 'isolation viewpoints. But in any event, there are some people he had selected whose presence, they had just a little bit hard to, to understand, given his, his predilection for what amounts to a semi isolation.

As long as they spell your name right may apply to celebrities in general for candidates for elective office. That's not true. Yeah. Yeah. You're absolutely right. And I agree with you about that. It just last time I called you we had a debate about all the name calling he does it crooked Hillary and Lyon. I told you I told you, I said, that's what's getting detention. And he's doing a really good job by. He does get he does get attention. I suppose that if he if he has to engage in, in the calling of names that I would personally prefer that, that he, he, I guess, was a little more creative. I mean referring to, to Joe Biden as a dummy. I mean that that's, that's beneath the graffiti, you would find on the bathroom wall of a middle school boy's room. I mean, I have less problem, I suppose with the name calling that I do with the infantile level of some of the name calling that lives low energy stuff. I'm not sure what in the world that's supposed to mean. You don't run for public office, unless you have a pretty fair amount of energy. Joe Biden's intellect for example, I don't consider at question here is judgment. Major league. Big time is intellect now again, I guess. If he just picked better names, I'd be a lot happier.

I do not need six thousand dollar does not crap. And it comes with a special monitor and that monitor itself comes with a air requires a one thousand dollar stand that you have to buy. In addition to stand for the monitor's thousand. That's what I've been seeing. So I'd have to get the six thousand dollars commuter, computer. That's without a monitor.

And if we see a fake video, we're going to say, I don't, I don't know what I don't know whether honestly I'm not trying to be sarcastic. I don't know what you're playing would be. Well, I think we'll very, very quickly get to a point where nobody believes anything or some people believe everything, but the recent flat and hang out with them the recent. And sell them stuff, the recent flat, which could not have been more idiotic inconsequential of Trump in that American actress gal who married a prince, whatever that is the Princess, whatever that is. And then she pass it stuff. Trump said, I didn't know she was nasty, but I think she'll do excellent job. And of course, the media, took that nasty quote, and then he did ninety set it, but there's tape of him saying, I didn't know she was nasty, and so a big made of that, but I think we're at the point, or we will be certainly within a year year and a half where that tape of Trump. Now, let's imagine it wasn't that mind, bogglingly idiotic conversation about a Princess whoever whatever that is a but was something of serious consequence, and there was serious doubt as to whether Trump actually said that her that was entirely manufactured. Remember the famous. Barack Obama lean into the pretend president of Russia, there for a Cup of coffee and saying, I'll have more flexibility after the election, which was pretty big political story.

And Tony soprano wasn't even at the bottom being that day that you claim you recorded this. But you're right. Yeah, that is that's a problem, too. Yeah. Very interesting. On the other hand, you can sit around having cocktails at home and make famous people say, ridiculous stuff to entertain your friends, and that'll that'll be hilarious.

"Former Massachusetts Governor William weld officially launches a long shot challenge against President Trump. Correspondent Linda Kenyon has the story. President Trump has his first official Republican party challenger announcing that I'm running for president of the United States as a Republican against President Trump in twenty twenty William Weld who Seventy-three was the libertarian party is vice presidential candidate in two thousand sixteen he reregistered as a Republican earlier this year in canton, Massachusetts, where he lives well served two terms as governor of Massachusetts in the nineteen nineties where he built a reputation as a fiscally conservative socially, moderate Republican. The Republican National Committee is taking steps to head off any potential primary challenger by voting to express its undivided support for the president. So far Trump's presidential campaign has raised more than thirty million dollars in the first quarter of two thousand nineteen and has more than forty million dollars on hand. So why is William well? Trying to unseat the president given what appears to be nearly impossible odds.
