today's stories hammer trump's shins with a pipe wrench. but that doesn't ordinarily happen into a couple of paragraphs into the story, by which time most readers have bailed. that is very true. people have short attention spans, thanks in large part to the modern media, and trump understands what schaefer admits. a columnist takes his ideas were he can find them, he is never going to get the media to cover him the way he wants, but he knows that if he keeps throwing stuff out there they'll at least cover what he wants. ♪ >> tom: a lot to chew on here, right? that was a massive monologue. on spicer. i like his style. why is he all of a sudden bucking tradition. what kind of tradition is that? >> he knows that if he picks on the press, he always looks better for doing so because everybody hates the press.

fairly, i know it's a bit of a cliche, but going after voter fraud is what joel stein was doing. he's doing exactly what the people on the left that they love so much would have love to do but mack had they been in office. >> i think a lot of media is unbiased. i'm i making a bold statement, d particularly, i work at associated press. i'm a fan of associated press. why does he keep going after them, there are so many other media organizations who very clearly have had a beef with him. >> you walk in prison and you punch the biggest guy there. >> remember, helen was ap. >> tom: for years and years that she was ap and she had to get that first question. >> with prison rules she would still with the first question,

another" ." >> former mexican president, tweeted. as he was typing that tweet, here was the scene at the borde border. [laughter] >> tom: larry, a lot of smart people were laughing when he said were going to build a wall. they were making fun of him. they're not laughing now, are they? >> this news cycle is only going to work as long as they think he's going to start working, it's going to get old if he doesn't. i was raised 280 miles from the border, i love all of god's
children. i love my children and your children, i love them a little longer, it's tough when you're sitting up in a deer stand, yes were going to kill bambi's daddy, big deal. >> tom: are we trying to keep deer from our country? >> they're coming over our borders, eating our apples. >> is horrible to think of that, but the pure economics of the load that's being put on, i think he's going to do it, i im an old bricklayer, no way around travel. you mix up the mud, the sand, the water, you put in a mortar board and you get the trowel in the spatula. >> tom: he also knows what the machine is called. >> i'll help with the wall.
>> tom: then, about the wall. he's going to start building it, we've got to protect the border. >> i think it's one of the easiest campaign promises that he can live up to. >> tom: what about the paying? they're still laughing, i don't see what's so funny. we can always just make them pay and whatever transactions we have with mexico, will put it on the bill. >> do what jerzy does, have a whole system set up, you want to come through and you can afford it, it will be nice roads or anything but you'll do the trial on the way over. >> the most powerful economic engine, the most powerful country in the face of the earth, that is just across a small river that you can walk across, from a pretty, i know there are beatable people in pn mexico, like tortillas hot rock. i believe he's going to have a
big stick. he's going to figure out some way to make them pay. i just believe he will. >> tom: jimmy, the market is up, hello $20,000, am i right about that question work >> he's killing it right now. nobody wants to hear that but he's actually having a good week. >> tom: big business were the ones that were against this wall, against the border talk. if i'm correct. >> they're behind it now because they realize that in the overall scheme of things, if you fortify the border it does have a profound effect on stabilizing markets and stuff like that because were not assuming the cost of all this immigration. right now they said there's a surge in children crossing border, it's not about you mack because the walls about to go up, it's because we just got rid of michelle obama's school lunches. kids want to come back again. >> tom: jill, there's going to be a while but can he keep the promise of there will be a beautiful door in that wall? >> i'm still laughing about who's going to pay for it,
because i have two toddlers at home and it's like watching them argue, they keep going back and forth. it never ends, they keep saying the same things until you give someone reasons are animal crackers. >> it's the actual mexican standoff. >> tacos and tequila. >> what's want to happen is exact with what you describe, he's going to wind up taking it off of some type of trade deal or something. it's going to be a save face for everybody where he's want to be able to claim victory and they can both claim victory in some capacity. but they're paying, i think they're paying. >> moving on, we're learning more about president trump's morning routine.
