tv   CNN Tonight With Don Lemon  CNN  March 27, 2017 8:00pm-9:01pm PDT

8:00 pm
this is cnn break news. breaking news. growing calls for the chairman of the house intelligence committee to recuse himself from the russia investigation. this is cnn tonight. i'm don lemon. nunes defending his visit that he says suggests trump teams may have been picked up by foreign nationals. the top democrat has yet to see those documents and calls on nunes to step aside from the russian probe. let's go right to cnn's evan perez. what do you have? >> well, there's been a lot of twists and turns in this story in the last 24 hours and of course towards the end of the day in an interview with phil mattingly, a top democrat said
8:01 pm
one or suggested one reason why the chairman of that committee should step aside from this is the communications he's talking about, the intelligence reports he might be talking about may include his own name. you know he served on the trump transition as a member of -- as an advisor, donald trump's transition to the now president. and nun esmight be conflicted in his handling of the investigation. earlier in the day nunes began the day by essentially outing his source as someone he met with at the white house. that was an unusual statement today from him. and we still don't know know what intelligence reports he's talking about. one republican on the hill who talked to gloria tonight says simply capturing foreign
8:02 pm
diplomats in their interactions with the trump team. >> and he says he's done nothing wrong despite those calls. and previously undisclosed meetbug tween jared kushner and a russian banker. what do you know? >> that's right. this is a bank called veb. it's a very closely tied to the kremlin and the russian government. and jared kushner met with the chief of that bank. his name is sergey and we've had various explanations as to why he met with him according to the white house this was a routine part of him serving as essentially the top conduit for meet shz with foreign officials during the trump transition. we have seen a statement provided by the new york times and they say that they met with
8:03 pm
kushner in his capacity as a developer, as the president of his own development team in new york. so the question is what -- which story is it? we know the white house has had trouble explaining all these meetings with russian officials. we've even tried to get to the bottom of this in the past week and they've sort of been very reluctant to provide all this information. but this could pose a new legal problem for jared kushner, don. simply because if he's using a transition meeting, an official government meeting for his own business purposes, that could raise some legal questions for him and for the white house. >> i want to bring in now bill crystal, the editor at large of the weakly standard. betsy mccoy, the former republican -- and good evening to all of you. what's your resnacks. >> first of all, i think it'ser
8:04 pm
shameful the effort on the part of the democratic party to taint, to smear devyn nunes, a person who has done something very import ntd for this country. not just for the trump administration or the republican party. he is unmasking the -- he is disclosing the efforts of the permanent establishment in washington to taint, to undermine the effectiveness of the trump administration. >> you have no problem with him going to the white house first? >> i don't. >> in that role, first and foremost is to notify your colleagues in your committee. democrats and republicans. >> because the evidence doesn't change no matter who you take it to. >> absolutely. and at the very beginning he would brief the committee and have a press conference. otherwise he's going to be bum barded by every reporter in town
8:05 pm
but the fact he went from a press conference to the white house and his colleagues, i understand their frustration. >> and he's actually apologized to them for having side stepped and gone instead to president trump. perception matters and it matters because we're talking about something that is the pillar of our democracy. the integrity of our process. if i were a trump supporter i would want an investigation above board in every aspect so they can finally get this monkey off their back. i think it's time for republican voices to raise the question about his ability to conduct a full and fair investigation because americans watching this are going to wonder if republicans who are in charge are capable of doing this and if they're not, they're going to take it out in the ballot box, maybe not against nunes but certainly republicans in tight
8:06 pm
ditight districts. >> president trump could do it tomorrow. he could appoint any two former attorney generals and say have access to all the docdocuments. make it all public. i don't understand it. why don't they tell us everything? why do you find out one thing after another. the reason they're not telling you is because they don't want you to know everything because there might be problems there otherwise this is pretty easy to handle. is this really a tough challenge? if there's nothing to hide hire two people to look into it and no problem. nothing was done that was wrong. kushner is fine. he can meet with this guy under sanctions in his capacity as a businessman and representative of the white house, there's no problem with that in america.
8:07 pm
that's why this meeting wasn't made public. this is a problem. >> steve hall is on the retired chief of cia russian operations. he says this whole masking thing is a ruse. >> it's ludicrous. what was leaked? >> it's an inappropriate method by which the establishment in washington attempts to discredit members of the trump administration. >> what has been leaked? >> what's been done to michael flynn? >> nunes says this has nothing to do with riussia. you are saying intelligence officers -- let me finish. intelligence officers in the cia, the nsa, people who have worked 20, 30, 40 years for this country are doing the obama administration's bidding. >> and it's true in the justice department. we saw early on that high ranking members of the justice
8:08 pm
department were disloyal to the new president and spoke against his policies. >> what a horror. >> instructing their underlings to defy the president. >> this is such a side show from the real issue. how did this begin? did russia interfere with our elections? that is a concern everyone -- >> you don't believe russia interfered with our elections? >> did russia tamper with our ballot boxes, with our voting machines? >> so interfering with public opinion is fine. stealing emails and releasing them strategically is fine for a foreign power. >> that's not the same as tampering with an election. >> how is that not the same? >> because interfering with public opinion is very different than tampering with how the
8:09 pm
votes are counted. let's make this distinction. >> if they had interfered or tampered with the voting booths, we would have a measurable metric of what they have done. what the result and the influence they did wield and with the cyber hacking, we cannot measure. >> foreign governments did not attempt to influence public opinion. >> does that mean we should allow it? does that mean we should allow our democracy to be threatened? >> i'm objecting sthoo phrase influencing public opinion. it has nothing to do with tampering with the election. >> how does that have nothing to do with tampering with the election? >> donald trump said release these emails. >> and it undermined a
8:10 pm
credibility of a presidential candidate. >> why did he quote from these emails? >> i think he quite correctly understood that this is just craziness to attribute the outcome of an election to the releasing of a bunch of emails. >> do you think it was appropriate to site those emails, it was a great thing they released them? >> it's irrelevant to the outcome of the election. >> donald trump thought it was very helpful. >> that is the bottom line. >> there's an illegitimate outcome. >> the truth is we are never going to know that the influence wielded by russia had on the election. we'll never know if donald trump won or would have lost. i frankly accement that. what i don't accept is that we, as americans are not going to vigorously investigate to the last dam thing what happened so that we don't allow it to happen
8:11 pm
again. >> let me get this in. i don't even have to say remember the old phrase don't touch that dial. i don't think you will because we're coming right back. pds blrt

8:14 pm
8:15 pm
how bad was the health care loss for the white house? was it like hitting a pot hole or driving off a cliff? robert draper whose new article is called "trump versus congress." the washington post contributor join me as well. thank you both so much for joining us. you wrote an in-depth article on where the president and his advisors find themselves after the epic defeat of the health care bill on friday. is health care dead and what's the impact on the rest of his agenda you think? >> it's a dead for the moment. the influence of factors.
8:16 pm
a house republican conference that has no experience in getting to yes. republicans as a whole not really ever forming a consensus on what they wanted an alternative to obamacare to be and obamacare changed the paradigm by adding 10s of millions of people to the rolls and the prospect of them going off the rolls turned up the tension and left a lot of people at sorts as to precisely what's going to happen. i think they have to abandoned it for the moment. the president has said over and over he wants a win. he didn't get it here. he thinks tax reform will be that win for him and there's a report they'll do tax reform and infrastructure at the same time. i think they need to master the art of the deal with one thing at a time. >> he says he'll work with
8:17 pm
democrats on health care. is that likely? >> i think that donald trump has created an atmosphere in washington of hunger games. someone is going to have to die every week and he may multiimately be the one who shool shoots himself in the foot and head. everyone seems to be getting hurt. it just keeps rubbing off. people who try to help him and there's paul ryan who is ended up practically losing his reputation because of his involvement with health care and reince priebus is probably on his way out if you read the inside white house gossip. gary cohen is probably on his way out. bannon is strong. jared kushner may be one of the people who has to die if things do not go well in the
8:18 pm
intelligence committee briefing. of course. you know what i'm talking about, the hunger games. >> okay. just want to put it in the right context. people get alarmed when you say shooting and things. >> but what i'm talking is all a metaphor. somebody has to go. walk the plank is what i'm talking about. >> that's a better analogy. thank you. >> you had flynn and who might be about to rat on trump, who knows. and you've got all these people on both intelligence committees in fighting with each other. and i just don't see the atmosphere changing. i think it's so toxic and poisonous and people are scrambling away. i just don't see the the
8:19 pm
cooperation coming. >> here's what robert gets into in this article. >> you go into great detail about stephen bannon and his pursuit of economic nationalism. is there any doubt in your mind that bannon is the intellectual driver behind the president's agenda? >> there's no doubt and he's achieved a mind meld with the president that goes beyond. he works late in the life. has no social life much like the president himself. other than golfing and yelling at you guys on the tv has no known hobbies. i would inject a note of caution
8:20 pm
to what sally has just said. sheez i think we've heard this before the 2016 presidential campaign and bodies were thrown over board, pick your metaphor. >> wait a minute, wait a minute. careful. >> but trump prevailed. i don't think he's going to bend washington to his will, buttiumier not sure washington is going to bend trump to washington's will. >> do you think democrats would work with the president and vice versa? >> it depends. on a bill like infrastructure, they're going to be tempted to. on health care, no. >> because they say repeal is off the table. >> that's right. and unless president trump says we will go into obamacare and try to fix it as it is, the notion thatd democrats were going to come on board and participate in the repealing of the one great piece of
8:21 pm
legislation, monumental that the democrats participated in, in the last few years was never a realistic possibility and president trump is now tweeting to the effect and saying out loud this is all the democratic party's fault doesn't really pass the smell test. >> i do agree with robert that i don't think congress is going to or washington is going to bend trump to its will. that's never going to happen. but i think trying to create -- you're going to have to have an incredible blender to put these two together. the trump white house and the washington quote establishment and this is just not -- and i don't see the democrats in any mood to do anything to help trump on any level. and it ends up being determining how these people are seen back
8:22 pm
in their home districts. and if they get any whiff lat that they're hurting, they're not going to play. >> i would mention that one body we have not spoken about is not just the democratic party but the senate. obamacare repeal and replace failed in the one body that we thought would be the most hospitable to president trump, the house republicans. he has yet to deal with democrats and the senate. when he tries to get tax reform and the border adjustment tax through the senate, he's going to find a wall waiting for him. >> i want to get back to my panel. please no metaphors. i love those guys but how am i going to clean this one up? so let's talk about -- i think we talked about this russian investigation a lot. can we talk about -- unless you
8:23 pm
had something else to add, i want to talk about the president's tweeting and the first thing out of judge jane janene's mouth is he has to resign. >> it doesn't take judge janene to determine what was a debacle. you can try to blame it on them all you want but the bottom line is it was republicans who defeated the repeal and it's the question is, is it precedent set sng you had right wing republicans and the freedom caucus who both had so many issues with this piece of legislation that together they coalesced to bring it down. steve bannon went into freedom caucus meeting and told them you've got to vote for this. and someone said nobody's told me what to do since i was 18 and
8:24 pm
i didn't listen to them either. you can buck the president and the leadership and pay no consequences. >> they're answering to their constituents back home. and when you have a bill with 1/6 of the economy drafted really not with input from the two main facets of the republican party. those in the tuesday meeting as well as the house freedom caucus and it is brought forth and says we're going to pass this thing in 18 days without more input and the freedom caucus members were loyal to their people. they were not going to be swayed by bannon or any of the top officials. it demonstrated more than anything they were going to keep thaer promises to the people in their district. >> do you think i'm going to ask you this can they really work with democrats on a bill for health care? what'ser interesting to me is that it seems like the
8:25 pm
affordable care act was the best option out of all of the options on the table and it's not really on the table because it's still here. two become one. then you're a couple. think of all you'll share... like snoring. does your bed do that? the dual adjustability of a sleep number bed allows you each to choose the firmness and comfort you want. so every couple can get the best sleep ever. does your bed do that? only at a sleep number store, where queen mattresses start at just $899. and right now save $400 on our most popular mattresses. go to for a store near you.
8:26 pm
hi, i'm frank. i take movantik for oic, opioid-induced constipation. had a bad back injury, my doctor prescribed opioids which helped with the chronic pain, but backed me up big-time. tried prunes, laxatives, still constipated... had to talk to my doctor. she said, "how long you been holding this in?" (laughs)
8:27 pm
that was my movantik moment. my doctor told me that movantik is specifically designed for oic and can help you go more often. don't take movantik if you have a bowel blockage or a history of them. movantik may cause serious side effects, including symptoms of opioid withdrawal, severe stomach pain and/or diarrhea, and tears in the stomach or intestine. tell your doctor about any side effects and about medicines you take. movantik may interact with them causing side effects. why hold it in? have your movantik moment. talk to your doctor about opioid-induced constipation. if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help.
8:28 pm
8:29 pm
and we're back with my panel. will he work with the democrats on health care? >> he could do small bite size thing. he has to give up a comprehensive replacement of the tax code. repeal and replace of obamacare. get prescription drugs down. he could say i want money for the defense. he hasn't asked my advice. but if he did, he could do a few things. >> americans want the penalty for not having the insurance repealed and they want the employer mandate repealed so employers can hire more people full time. >> does it have to be repealed or can they make adjustments? >> those two elements must be repealed and the democrats have made it very clear -- >> i think on the repeal of the entire affordable care act. >> that's different.
8:30 pm
>> they're going to have to act soon because in literally five weeks insurers are required to announce whether they're participating in obamacare for the coming year and what their premiums are going to be and most insurers are running for the hills. >> by the white house being so down on obamacare, don't you think it's actually hurting people? >> they lost enough. >> in an ideal world you'd think we could put partisan aside and fix what both sides need fixing and we don't and if democrats are hearing donald trump say i'm going to let obamacare collapse on his own, they're saying you have a 36% approval rating, i'm going to buy a bag of popcorn and watch you collapse because after this failed attempt, the big problem republicans have is othat they now own this ugly baby.
8:31 pm
>> the put ary barn rule. you break it, you own it. >> this exchange between sean hannity, ted copal also took place. >> we have to give some credit to the american people that they're somewhat intelligent and know the difference between an opinion show and a news show. you're cynical. >> i am cynical. >> you think i'm bad for america? >> yeah. >> you do? >> in the long hall i think you and all these poichb shows because you're very good at what you do and because you have attracted a significantly more -- let me finish the sentence. >> i'm listening. with all due respect. >> you have attracted people who are determined that ideology is more important than facts.
8:32 pm
>> i'm not saying just about sean but there are people who think ideology is more important than fact. people do not believe the truth, they believe ideology but you've been talking to sean and what does sean say? >> he said it was a good substantive interview. he felt good about it. but seeing the one minute that koppel used, he's trying to point out that opinion hosts and sean will openly admit he's a talk show host, use their opinions to sway people and it's not based on fact. they use their opinions and sean says i respect the intelligence of the american people to make the up their mind thap they know i'm a host and not a journalist, whereas koppel says he's a journalist and he's supposed to be the journalist and he is the
8:33 pm
one using his opinions. >> i give sean some credit for bringing on ted koppel, a newsman and sean could have expected would be critical. >> it was on ted koppel's show. >> well, i give him credit for having gone on that show. because this whole issue of fake news to real news from ted koppel, it was going to come up. i really hate this cackling hen between the anchors of the different networks. it's bad enough we have to deal with the president of the united states being a cackling hen but joe scar borough, versus hannity, versus cuomo. >> i will never -- exactly. always take the high road. and we're all in the same
8:34 pm
business. >> i don't say sean hannity has changed anybody's mind. he doesn't make arguments. it's all about reinforcing people's true believes. >> this is like making an argument we shouldaboutant have moreen dowd. the same people who read the editorial page read opinions at night. >> you have 24 hours. when people he's saying what's bad, don't believe facts. when people believe ideology over facts. he's talking about people. >> you want to live in political isolation, fine. if you only want to read things that affirm your believes and watch things that affirm your believes, you can. we don't understand everybody else. >> that's why i like being on with you. >> i watch and read everything and i think people should do
8:35 pm
thatads an exercise all the time. if you're conservative, you should watch something you believe to be liberal. >> actually they -- >> i just -- i'm liberal, i'm conservative, i'm crazy. moeaki i'm just like my mother. no, controversy. wrong song. we'll be right back. finally get in shape. not to be focusing on my moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis. so i made a decision to talk to my dermatologist about humira. humira works inside my body to target and help block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to my symptoms. in clinical trials, most adults taking humira were clear or almost clear, and many saw 75% and even 90% clearance in just 4 months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure.
8:36 pm
before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. ask about humira, the #1 prescribed biologic by dermatologists. clearer skin is possible. when preparing for surgery, use an over-pronounced washing technique for dramatic effect. they also know you need to get your annual check-up. now prepare for your check-up with one touch using the mycigna app, where you can find a doctor in your plan's network to save money, manage your health and more. need to be thorough... cigna. together all the way.
8:37 pm
8:38 pm
8:39 pm
tonight the trump administration is cracking down, even undocumented immigrants who have lived in the u.s. for decades is at risk and one of those people, his wife voted for president trump baz she liked the idea of keeping criminals out of the country, never imagining that her husband could be a target. so joining me now is a spokesman for the family. adam, thank you for joining us. how is the family doing? >> you know, they're doing as best they can. they're obviously distraught right now. they have a father that is going to be removed from this country
8:40 pm
any day. >> give us a background on this story. your client has been living in the u.s. illegally while checking in with immigration officials every year for five years to show he was say staying out of trouble. so why now? >> quite honestly it's the administration. in early february when theed a min stragds said they were going to make individuals with a prior order of removal, a final order of removal a priority as well, that's when roberto, like he had been doing the past five years, walked in for his yearly check in and was immediately detained. it wasn't that they went to find him, he voluntarily walked in to their offices. >> his wife actually voted for president trump because she blooeved that he'd only remove bad hombres and when we
8:41 pm
interviewed his wife, she had this to say. >> i think our president is going to keep all the good people here. he's not going to tear up families. i don't think he wants to do that. he just wants to keep us safe. >> then a couple of days ago she told her local newspaper "i wish i didn't vote at all. i did it for the economy. we needed a change." does she regret voting for president trump? >> absolutely. she only got bits and pieces from what he was saying durricing the candidacy. i think we can all agree this run for president was on the news constantly and only heard a little bit about that and it is saying they're only going to remove dangerous people. if she had heard everything and listening to your show, she may have voted differently. but she listened to him at his
8:42 pm
word and unfortunate wlae his word -- he doesn't follow it. >> which is part of our last conversation about being informed and out of the bubble. you told our producers that helen feels ashamed. she's ashamed of her vote and her children had been asking her why she did it. what can you tell us about that? what is she saying to them? >> you know, i think these rr saying -- she wasn't fully informed that time. she didn't necessarily believe that president trump was going to start targeting every single illegal immigrant, including the ones that were law abiding, documented, showing up every single year into i.c.e. immigration offices. she didn't believe this president was going to start targeting absolutely aerv
8:43 pm
within, especially ones contributing to her community. in her mind her husband wasn't really illegal. he was a productive member of the society. >> if he had been here for so long, why wasn't he able to become legal? >> so in the year 2000, he had been here roughly two years at that time. him and helen were trying to take a vacation to niagara falls. they sort of missed their exit started going towards canada. they started trying to take a u-turn and i.c.e. thought that was suspicious, detained him and he was detained for two weeks. it's unclear but it sounds like he didn't have adequate legal counsel and he entered into a voluntary deportation order. that turned intoa final order of
8:44 pm
removal when he didn't leave the country. and he didn't leave the country for very good reasons. he had a then fiance that was pregnant with his first child and having complications. he did what any good father would have done and stayed with his wife. >> i appreciate it. >> of course. we'll be right back.
8:45 pm
yeah, at first i thought it was just the stress of moving. [ sighs ] hey, i was using that. what, you think we own stock in the electric company? i will turn this car around right now! there's nobody back there. i was becoming my father. [ clears throat ] it's...been an adjustment, but we're making it work. you know, makes it easy for us to get the right home insurance. [ snoring ] progressive can't protect you from becoming your parents, but we can protect your home and auto. [ chuckles ] all right. at crowne plaza we know business travel isn't just business. there's this.
8:46 pm
'a bit of this. why not? your hotel should make it easy to do all the things you do. which is what we do. crowne plaza. we're all business, mostly. knows how it feels to seeetes your numbers go up, despite your best efforts. but what if you could turn things around? what if you could love your numbers? discover once-daily invokana®. it's the #1 prescribed sglt2 inhibitor that works to lower a1c. invokana® is a pill used along with diet and exercise to significantly lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. and in most clinical trials, the majority reached an a1c goal of 7 percent or lower. invokana® works around the clock by sending some sugar out of your body through the process of urination. it's not for lowering systolic blood pressure or weight, but it may help with both. invokana® can cause important side effects, including dehydration, which may cause you to feel dizzy, faint,lightheaded,or weak, upon standing.

8:48 pm
when president trump spoke of the people he called bad hombres, he probably didn't mean people like roberto barren steen. everybody thing studio is cracking up because i said bad awni andres. sim own heard it. you guys heard it. >> i was like, no, don, no.
8:49 pm
>> hombres. so, peter we just heard from adam, the attorney for that family. her family doesn't understand why he -- she voted for him. i'm sure the husband doesn't understand why now. >> the government has to make decisions about how they prosecute the law. there are limited resources so when you decide you're going to spend taxpayer money to deport this guy, by all accounts a really upstanding person, beloved by their community, been in the united states a very long time and only made this country better rbs at the same time you're not going to enforce environmental laws. these are decisions the trumpt administration is making based on its priorities. >> but look i was interning at an immigration nonprofit when obama was president. i was in a city where people like roberto said to me i was
8:50 pm
caught up in obama sweep of my house and i'm being deported. they happen in every administrati administration. i'm sympathetic to them. there are a lot of good immigrants in this country. like kate steinle who lost her life at the hands of an illegal immigrant. we have to find a policy of compromise that takes into account the innocent person that wants to work here legally and the person who loses their life at the hands of an illegal immigrant, as well. >> i agree with kayleigh there. she needs anh s a humane immigr policy. they deported a lot of people, more than any u.s. president in history. that's a qualm in the immigration rights community has with the obama administration. but we're talking about the trump administration here. and donald trump and his
8:51 pm
administration has targeted anybody that is an immigrant that did not come here, quote/unquote, legally. and if half of you had to take the test for citizenship, we probably wouldn't pass the, either. folks crossing the border, folks working, paying taxes, these are mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles. that's what we do not have ump under the trump administration. >> it's emblematic about how complplex this issue is. and there are some people out there that have to be targeted with those enforcement measures. but this is somebody who is emblematic of the kind of citizen that we want in this country. somebody who becomes part of the american fabric, somebody who becomes part of the american dream. and helps grow our economy. and that is the challenge that the trump administration is going to face. they're only 60-plus days in. they will continue to face this
8:52 pm
for the next four, possibly the next eight years. you campaign in poetry but you govern in prose. the decisions they make on a daily basis, related to investment are much more complex than drawing contrast on the campaign trail. >> there's a lot of agreement. this panel usually disagrees. >> who knew, right? >> as someone who owns a business, a productive member of society, those are the immigr t immigrants that you want. >> absolutely. and there seem to be that realization, trump primary candidate, which was, let's deport everyone. >> i wonder if they will think twice. i'm going to deport the bad h hombres. i wonder if that will make them think twice again. >> a large of number of people coming in are fleeing violence in central america.
8:53 pm
and he doesn't want to allow any refugees in the country. this is a moral failure by the president. >> i want to move on now. there's so much to dis 'caucuss. this is former trump talking about obama golfing. >> obama played 250 rounds of golf. he played more golf last year than tiger woods. he plays more golf than people on the p ga tour. golf, golf, golf. learning how to chip. learning how to hit the drive. i want more. i love golf. it's one of the greats. i'm going to be working for you. i don't have time to play golf. i wouldn't leave the white house very much because you know, like little things, like the little trips, where they cost you a fortune. if i were in the white house, i don't think i would see turnberry again. i don't think i would see doral. i want to stay in the white house and work my ass off, make great deals. >> that was president trump when
8:54 pm
he was a candidate, talking about president obama playing golf. president trump has tweeted 26 times about president obama playing golf too much. in 2014. trump paid for golf. we pay for obama's travel so we can fund raise millions so democrats can run on lies. then, we pay for his golf. you can put them up. i don't have to read them. since taking office nine weeks ago, the president has visited one of his golf courses 13 times. how is this not completely hypocritical? >> every party uses vacationing and golfing as a hit against the other party. it's kind of a cheap shot. >> but you don't think it's hypocritical? >> a little. >> you don't have an issue with him golfing so much? >> there's a difference between president bush, who took time away from vacationing, away from golfing, in honor of the iraq war, versus president obama, who -- >> you tweeted about the president golfing.
8:55 pm
>> of course. >> you said work -- things that offend obama. work outside the grsolf course. and you said dnc in four words, find a golf course. and you said he just left a golf course and counting down the minutes until he can go back. #presidentialdebate. you tweeted about it. when president bush took time off from the golf course, you had president obama, after the beheading of daniel pearl, spoke to how upset he was about that and rushed off to a golf game. when we're in a state of war or mourning -- >> remember watch in drive. >> now, watch this drive? >> hold on. there's somebody you can find anywhere in america that's in a state of mourning. flint doesn't have clean water. they're in a state of mourning. and donald trump has been at the golf course. we should agree this is

contradictory. donald trump says one thing about everybody else. when it happens to him, it doesn't apply to him. >> is that kevin saying yes? >> it's not just duonald trump. is it being hypocriticahypocrit? yes. i criticized president obama on the economy, health care, national security, foreign policy. i never, ever once criticized him for playing golf. why? i love to play golf. i know that it is relaxing. it's something you do with friends. it's something you can do with people that you work with. and we knew this was going to happen. that we're going to have another president, a republican, who actually happened to play golf. and it does look hypocriticahyp. donald trump would be well served to say i was wrong and i'm going to play golf. >> sean spicer said in 2012, about president obama, wish i could go on the golf course but have to work. must be nice to be president. sure must be nice. >> is that a news flash that donald trump says things that are not true? >> are we coming back?
