thank you for being here. thanks for being with us. west virginia governor jim justice and jack keane among our guests tomorrow. tino what you are thinking, it's a date. see you then. good night from new york. kennedy: president trump rips into mitch mcconnell. can the senate majority leader go toe to toe with the president snpts a judge ordered a new search for hillary clinton's benghazi emails. it's time to feast upon knowledge. fail europe sucks. it's -- failure sucks. healthcare has been a big fat failure. and a stinging loss means the president wants to stay on it. mitch mcconnell has not only
taken a defeatist approach to his implosion, he has done what every lazy loser does in the aftermath of defeat. he's blaming someone else. we assumed seething republicans had a shiny, happy plan they could snap into plan on inauguration day. but it should be long enough to turn a lump of crap like obamacare into a friendly plan that doesn't affect the economy. apparently the legislative process moves slower presidential ice. he says the president has excessive expectations. his experience and intellect too low to understand and shepherd
quality legislation. they had no problem catering to the voters' excessive expectations. there was a sense of urgency to get the party back on track because both parties and leadership failed us. the president tweeted out, can you believe mitch mcconnell who screamed repeal and replace for seven years couldn't get it done? yes, i can believe a power hungry politician lied. now it's interesting to see how voters reacted to mitchell's failure. i have a feeling they will channel the blame at the ballot box. i vote for you. i'm kennedy.
this afternoon the president was asked if mitch mcconnell should resign. here is what he said. >> i want them to get repeal and replace done. i have been hearing repeal and replace for 7 years and i have only been doing this for two years, and i have been doing this for six months, but i have been running. kennedy: here with a tale of the tapes is my heavyweight party panel. lgbt for trump founder chris baron. and joe concha joins knee. how did mitch mcconnell not realize the comments he made at the rotary club in kentucky would be turned around? >> if you mean that pain is
temporary? that sounds where he says expectations were too high. seven years you are the guy who set those expectations. there are sound bites of you on the senate floor talking repeal and replace day one. kennedy: what is mccouldn't's strategy if he's going to avoid a prolonged fight. this is just the kinds of enemy he likes. whether it's hillary clinton or the media, mitch mcconnell and his clumsy comments are taylor made. -- tailor made. >> this is such a prime example of what's wrong with washington. we heard for years repeal it. no, let's do anything we can to stop this from happening. it goes to the supreme court. we are angry it wasn't taken down there.
now you have got the president, you have got majority, and what did they do? screw it up again. there is no defense for this. i hope the voters, they are the ones being told no you are not getting what you want. come out and vote these guys out. kennedy: i don't understand how mcconnell explains the boring concept of the legislative process when it's simple for voters. they have been given a mandate. >> this is why trump won. this dirty little game washington played, they are saying it behind closed doors about tax reform. guess what, i heard it, they are not going to do tax reform. they are happy to have the political issue to fight over. what they weren't expecting was a president who got elected who
wanted to follow through on his promises. trump thought i have got this republican house and senate, they have been talking about repealing obamacare. get it to my decks on election day. they say you actually expected us to do it? kennedy: if they go through the same process and find the same fissures in the party it will be difficult for them to get it done if they come up with the same road blacks between moderate and conservative groups. that's one thing to have philosophical differences. it's another thing to have a majority leader who can't wrangle people and figure out how to get everyone on the same page. >> we noticed politicians talk and talk. when push comes to shove, they
don't want their name actually on something that could be used against them. so they sit there and do nothing. >> the devil's advocate argument is he can only lose 3 votes. that's a very tightrope to walk. you have to bring democrats in to tax reform because they will say no to everything. they would have got healthcare if they got mccain. when people say republicans failed. didn't really mccain fail? kennedy: i disagree mccain failed. he did exactly what he said he was going to do. he said enough of the nonsense. this is the boring process mitch mcconnell was talking about. if mcconnell was smart and did that from the beginning and honor the process he claims to be a part of, then you would have seen a vastly different bill that would have been free
market. cowardly skinny version that would be a franken bill by the time it got to the house. >> every time they moved the bill to the right, every moderate who moved for repeal before hid under the covers. >> that's hypocritical. they voted to repeal obamacare and they have the power and ability to positively affect the healthcare conversation and they didn't do it. if they had gone back and been true to their word instead of being slimily politicians who are worried about getting re-elected instead of doing something meaningful that would benefit people's lives. >> the slogan skinny repeal? how about stage one repeal.
kennedy: that's like going up to a bar as a guy at a bachelor party and ordering a gin margarita. >> it doesn't sound good. kennedy: does mcconnell survive this? >> who knows. we are uncharted territory at this point. i hope that the voters come out with that passion they had in the presidential election and start calling these guys out. who wants to be in charge. who wants that job? >> ted cruz? kennedy: i don't care. someone has to. it's the friggin' senate. they have a country club cream puff life. the president was asked about his fire and fury comments. watch. >> the people that were questioning that statement was it too tough. maybe it wasn't tough enough. they have been doing this to our country for a long time, for many years. it's about time somebody stuck
up for the people of this country and for the people of other countries. if anything maybe that statement wasn't tough enough ken there are that after a north korean general put out a statement saying they were planning to lawn much four missiles into the watters and territory of guam. they said sound dialogue is not possible with somebody bereft of reason. that general is charles schumer. the plan to launch the rockets will be presented to kim jong-un in mid-august and he will decide to watch the launch then. how concerned should we be? let me bring in former cia officer and host of buck sexton.
a lot of people are freaked out by this. there are people who feel like the president went too far and was declaring nuclear war on north korea. i'm the kind of person who says the president was using a smart psychological strategy. i don't agree with a lot of the stuff he says and does. but i agree here. >> he is confronting a bully which is what the kim regime has been for everybody in the region. now these missiles have a longer and longer trajectory and the nuclear warheads get smaller and smaller. if you are going to confront a bully, you have to convince that state that you will throw a punch. oh, they know we'll escalate and use force if we have to. i don't think that's the case.
i think the kim regime can do what they have been doing, which is swindling us. agreeing to ramp down their rhetoric and taking food aid or taking whatever it is at a given time. so they are getting closer and closer to what they want. the acceleration in the usage of missiles in the testing of missiles and the way they speak about kim jong-un versus kim jong-il. they are heading towards an actual conflict with south korea based on the propaganda. the timeline is not in our favor. kennedy: a lot of the solutions the people have suggested take too much time to implement because it is an accelerated timeline. but there are two sides to the story. it almost seems like north korea wants a con flirktd. why would they want a conflict?
>> north korea wants a conflict. the entire legitimacy of the state is premised on uniting the peninsula. we always think of the kim regime being crazy and it is to an extent. but also there are some -- there is some support among the north korean people. part of brainwashing is you are hard wired to think a certain way about some issues. and they believe they are and siege from the west. kennedy: they believe attack is imminent and the united states, the imperialists are going to invade their country and they have no choice but to defend themselves. >> they think they are going to be anile yaition if they don't d annihilation if they don't stand up.
south korea is prosperous enough, there is enough connectivity between those two states saying if south korea is so bad, why are they doing so well. if north korea is going to tell their people we are the real korea, these are the puppets of the americans. when you have regime legitimacy and state stability in question is when scary stuff happens. wet were he's rational or irrational and it looks like the whole state is going to collapse, and you have nukes, and you have a theory of annihilating. kennedy: thank you so much, buck sexton. coming up. controversial quarterback colin kaepernick can't get a job.

kennedy: the nfl preseason is upon us. and colin kaepernick doesn't have a job. he created a firestorm last season by kneeling during "the national anthem." commissioner roger goodell says kaepernick is not being black balled because of his political views, but some team owners have admitted to fear of backlash. now there is a threatened boycott if kaepernick isn't signed. a petition reads show your power by not watching and boycotting
the nfl until kaepernick is signed. the petition has 80,000 signatures by this afternoon. which group of fans will the league cave to. let me bring in lawrence jones from blaze tv. welcome back. this an interesting situation you have. colin kaepernick was one of the brightest stars in the league. >> was. was. kennedy: then his performance slipped considerably. i know this because my stepdad used to curse by the as a lifelong 49ers fan. when his arm crapped out, that's when he took a knee. are team obligated to sign kaepernick because he has
political views out there? >> the colin kaepernick who went to the super bowl who was a starting quarterback. it was only when his career started to go down that he brought up the issues. but the question is does the nfl have the right to not put him on the field because he brings down ratings? that is the big question. the nfl is not just about sports. it's entertainment and it's about money at the end of the day. when you talk to people who say the reason i'm not watching because i believe he was directly disrespecting the flag, it hurt the ratings. >> it's a question of telling the league or teams they can't sign him. and revenues have been hurt by
the fact the audience shrunk by 20%. do the individual team have the right to not sign him? >> exactly. you have people that were officially upset about it. this is governed by the fans. the fans are responsible for the salary. they pay for the tickets. the fans are the ones that attend the games. the fans are the ones who buy the jerseys. everything we do in the entertainment industry is by the viewership and by the fans. so when the fans say no, that's just the bottom line. kennedy: that's the way the marketplace works in a free market. but it's taken a divisive turn. this is a quote from al sharpton
network. she says they are treating kaepernick like a runaway slave. make him an example. don't get too uppity or we'll black ball you. >> i'm trying not to curse on national tv. the interesting they can about that point. why is colin kaepernick telling young black men and people of color they can't make it after he made it? after you have been successful, after you have a million dollar home and million dollar car and you can eat at whatever restaurant you want to eat at. now, you want to tell people in the same community you grew up in that they can't make it because of oppression. why don't you breed an inspirational message. kennedy: colin kaepernick turned
himself into a polarizing figure after some of his talent faded. now he's wondering why his fortune shifted. we'll see if the change.org petition works. do you think this will work? >> no. there are not enough people upset about it. maybe if he was a great lee or le bron james ke would have enough support for a political revolution. you can support colin kaepernick and not agree with him not standing for "the national anthem." kennedy: if he were a winning quarterback i think there would be more appetite for his politics.
seattle decided to tax the rich. now a conservative group is fighting back, suing the city. gerri willis has all the details. how many states don't have an incomincome tax? incomincome tax? the answer after the break.♪ the great beauty of owning a property is that you can create wealth through capital appreciation, and this has been denied to many south africans for generations. this is an opportunity to right that wrong. the idea was to bring capital into the affordable housing space in south africa, with a fund that offers families of modest income safe and good accommodation. citi® got involved very early on, and showed an enormous commitment. and that gave other investors confidence. citi's really unique, because they bring deep understanding of what's happening in africa. i really believe we only live once,
and so you need to take an idea that you have and go for it. you have the opportunity to say, "i've been part of the creation of over 27,000 units of housing," and to replicate this across the entire african continent. with some big news about type 2 diabetes. you have type 2 diabetes, right? yes. so let me ask you this... how does diabetes affect your heart? it doesn't, does it? actually, it does. type 2 diabetes can make you twice as likely to die from a cardiovascular event, like a heart attack or stroke. and with heart disease, your risk is even higher. you didn't know that. no. yeah. but, wait, there's good news for adults who have type 2 diabetes and heart disease. jardiance is the only type 2 diabetes pill with a lifesaving cardiovascular benefit. jardiance is proven to both significantly reduce the chance of dying from a cardiovascular event in adults who have type 2 diabetes and heart disease and lower your a1c.
jardiance can cause serious side effects including dehydration. this may cause you to feel dizzy, faint, or lightheaded, or weak upon standing. ketoacidosis is a serious side effect that may be fatal. symptoms include nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, tiredness, and trouble breathing. stop taking jardiance and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of ketoacidosis or an allergic reaction. symptoms of an allergic reaction include rash, swelling, and difficulty breathing or swallowing. do not take jardiance if you are on dialysis or have severe kidney problems. other side effects are sudden kidney problems, genital yeast infections, increased bad cholesterol, and urinary tract infections, which may be serious. taking jardiance with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. so now that you know all that, what do you think? that it's time to think about jardiance. ask your doctor about jardiance. and get to the heart of what matters. get your ancestrydna kit.here. spit. mail it in. learn about you and the people and places that led to you.
before the break i asked how many state don't have an income tax. the answer is lucky number. one of those states happens to be the evergreen state, washington. the federation for freedom says the plan is unconstitutional, they cite a state law prohibiting taxes on net income. they don't have an income tax. that's the war of businesses and individual to -- that's the lure of individual and businesses to places like washington state. gerri: florida as well. this is a big draw for a lot of people. but the people in seattle are saying that's not fair because there is a.5% sales tax people pay.
so when you are out spending in the world. but the reality is most of of that stuffy vaids the tax because they don't make you pay the tax on the necessities of life. kennedy: including food. seattle though they talk about the economic health of the region and have a lot of billionaires who live in the area because of companies like microsoft and amazon. but they also hate them and despise their wealth. and this is another example of the city trying to punish wealthy people they are envious of. gerri: they want to impose an income tax.
so they are capturing more than the hugely successful technology folks it's a broader net they are throwing people into. the freedom foundation says it's unconstitutional because the state constitution says you can't do that. kennedy: they can't set their own income tax. gere require has gone to the supreme court and the court says your state constitution says you can't do this. in new york city, deblasio wants a millionaire's tax to pay for the nonsense going on with public transportation. you see the left in the big cities, pedal to the metal. and state like confound if you do this, the wealthy leave. kennedy: when you have money you
have mobility and you can hire a bigger u-haul. hillary clinton may be out of the woods physically or she is not yet when it comes to benghazi. a federal judge ordered the state department to reopen the search for hillary's emails related to the 2012 attacks that killed four americans. >> we have four dead americans, was it because of protests or because some guys went out for a walk and decided to kill americans. what difference at this point does it make? kennedy: the judge ruled it didn't go far enough because the state department never bothered to check their own servers for messages that may have been sent from the seem accounts of her top aides. if hillary's missing emails can be found? is there hope for jimmy hoffa?
joe, this is a federal judge, this is an obama appointee. how is this different? >> they can't say see the republicans are coming after me again. this is serious stuff. there is a faction of people out there that say hillary lost the election. isn't that enough pain? she was supposed to win. it doesn't give you the right to break laws and rules. people saying let's move on because we have more important things to do. we can walk and chew gum at the same time. the state department under here is equally as culpable and no one ever talks about it. kennedy: will they find something? >> whether they do or not i can't imagine anything happening. she runs away and gets away with everything she has ever done. we'll get to see the contrast of how that's covered and how the
trump investigations are covered. that will be a fun litmus test to see how fair the investigation and the media are at covering this sort of thing. kennedy: this was a freedom of information request and a federal judge honored it. the state department looked in external places for emails, but they never looked in the state.gov servers. >> i have no idea where my keys are. i don't know where they are. i love the media saying she lost, she lost. isn't that enough? no, it's not enough. it's not blanket amnesty because you are a loser. just because you lose doesn't mean that the law should not continue to be followed. watching that clip, i forgot how much it actually continue fewer yates me to see her sitting
there saying what difference does it make? people lost their lives and we have a right to know what happened there so we can avoid that happening again. kennedy: if you see the movie "13 hours" you see the united states government cannot abandon people and attack and under deadly fire. there has to be some accountability. i understand we have got to let these things go at some point and it gets expensive and we can't go chasing after this to the tune of millions of dollars. but there has to be some accountability. >> i think paul manafort he didn't bleach bit and take a hammer to stuff. because apparently you can get away with it. kennedy: that's what you have to do. >> shouldn't critics of president trump want this, too? it's not just transparency and accountability for hillary clinton. it's transparency and
accountability for every administration going forward. kennedy: gentlemen, thank you so as much, joe, anthony and chris. coming up, the one and only john stossel tell me why law abiding citizens are getting arrested by tsa in new york city. one guy is in there for drugs ♪ hey, i'm the internet! i know a bunch of people who would love that. the internet loves what you're doing... ...so build a better website in under an hour with... ...gocentral from godaddy. the internet is waiting. start for free today at godaddy.

>> for what? >> for having a gun. i have my permit. i started freaking. she begged, please don't arrest my mom. she was begging her not to take me. john: police put her in jail and said you committed a felony. kennedy: holy cow. joining me now john stossel. are there no federal standard for transporting a fire narm this country? john:

kennedy: they have chee-tos crusted cheesecake that comes in three sizes. the new york yankees have won't same uniforms for 102 years. it's one of the most of time-honored traditions in sports along with the patriots cheating and the bengals going to jail. the bengals have the only team photo taken from the front and the side. but the yankees team photo will look different. for the first time ever they will be taking the field in uniforms that don't have pinstripes.
it's part of players weekend. the promotion is creating so much buzz they are already selling the uniforms for $99 online. the yankees aren't the only local team making changes to their appearance. the new york mets announced they are changing their logo to a white flag. rumor had it he's so sick of the mets losing he demanltdsed a trade. but they can't find a that his size. the solution cardinals don't know anything about surrendering. last night they claude their way back with some help from a cat. the team was trailing 4-3 with two out when this baby demon beast made it across the outfield.
this failed rodent look alike was running around. people say don't be so mean to cats. but look what it does to this poor guy who bigged it up. he's getting the flesh mauls off his arms. moments after the cat was removed from the field and hopefully give and series of shots, not from a gun, i inoculation. the cardinals catcher hit a grand slam that propelled his team to victory. the cat is now being referred to as the rally cat. cats hate everyone. and i know some people say oh, not my cat mr. snuggle muggle. he would like to bake you in an oven and change his name to
mr. human muffin if he can finds a way. i tell you because i care and they are gross. topic number 5. last tuesday was international cat day. i took the opportunity to share my thoughts on sea life. this is viewer mail. amy writes. lay off the cats within cats are the ultimate lynn tearian pet. they are independent, mostly self-sufficient and take orders from no one. yeah, they are total her to tearian. they -- they are total authoritarian. brad says i love cats. i just can't eat one by myself. eric thinks, you are a sad, lonely woman, kennedy. put your face against a cat and breathe. you will smell nothing. cleanest animal. do that to a dog and you will
want to gag. you can walk into someone's house and you don't even have to see a cat. your nose know right away. you know cats smell awful. enough about cats. darrell says stupid right-wing cow. come on, man, i'm libertarian. no more animals no more insults, thank you. raffle says kennedy is a very charge witch. the goddess. there is more news coming up. americans have an abundance of healthy eating options because it's the greatest country on earth. but it's fast food chains they are flocking to. after a dvt blood clot... i sure had a lot on my mind. my 30-year marriage...
...my 3-month old business... plus...what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i made a point to talk to my doctor. he told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis had both... ...and that turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots.
plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. potsc(in unison) drive russ, leland, gary: yes. gary: i have a ford f-150. michael: i've always been a ford guy. potsch: then i have a real treat for you today. michael: awesome. potsch: i'm going to show you a next generation pickup. michael: let's do this. potsch: this new truck now has a cornerstep built right into the bumper. gary: super cool. potsch: the bed is made of high-strength steel, which is less susceptible to punctures than aluminum. jim: aluminum is great for a lot of things, but maybe not the bed of a truck. potsch: and best of all, this new truck is actually- gary: (all laughing) oh my... potsch: the current chevy silverado. gary: i'm speechless. gary: this puts my ford truck to shame. james: i'll tell you, i might be a chevy guy now.
