1:38 am
that sweeping religious liberty executive order and at that time he said as long as i am president no american will ever have to choose between practicing his faith and obeying the law and on the pro-life front he has done what he said he would do, appointed a conservative justice to the supreme court, packing the courts with federal judges who will protect life as well. when the archbishop says he is baffled what is baffling to me is why a religious leader like the archbishop wouldn't support a pro-life pro-religious leader like donald trump. >> the majority of white evangelicals agree with you when you look at the work that has been done since he has been in office. this poll is from october 2017, do you approve or disapprove of the job donald trump is doing as president, 66% approve with 31% disapproving. where do you think the archbishop is getting his
1:39 am
information? >> i think the archbishop is accessing his own personal prejudice, that is why he is so baffled. when you read his comments in totality he seems to feel he is morally superior to donald trump. that is at the heart of this and he reminds me of the religious leaders jesus condemns when he talked about religious leaders who have a self inflated view of their own righteousness and look down on others. all of us are sinners, we all need a savior, that is the heart of the christian message, you would think someone like the archbishop would understand that. jillian: is it a case of misinformation being put out across the world by the mainstream media when you look at headlines, you don't see headlines that you mentioned at the top of the segment come all the good things going on, you hear negative things, people calling the president names and disparaging him. is that what he is listening to? >> that is partly true and i think it illustrates the divide
1:40 am
between the establishment elites whether it is governmental, political or religious elites and the average person. you remember during the election many religious leaders were opposed to donald trump and yet the people in the pew swept into office and right now it is still the average person in the pew who continues to support this president as he delivers on his promises. >> the nativity scene in the white house and we are saying merry christmas, appreciate your insight. have a good day. the time is 20 minutes until the top of the hour, seldom crackdown the white house staffers may no longer use their personal phones. starbucks for a cup of controversy by taking the christmas design off its coffee cups. this year they started with a multicolored design. now there is a whole new cup. halfway through the season, why one cup won't cut it. ♪

1:52 am
where you surprised by this finding? >> absolutely not. the government accountability office report verifies reporting done by usa today, this was done for years until earlier this year until the va took action to stop it. this was happening in large part because it was difficult to fire bad employees including clinicians, doctors etc. and this was part of a deal to get them out of the va including payoffs as well and the result, not only causing problems at the va, but this billion medical a system because a lot were leaving and working private-sector. >> 5 va hospitals, let's look at a segment, the gao found from october 2013 through march 2017 the five selected

mcs did not inform providers who should have been reported to national practitioner data bank or state licensing board in accordance with the age a policy. how do we fix it? >> the things it needs to happen is the law donald trump signed into law needs to be enforced and donald trump's secretary is enforcing it so you need to fire, not pay off or allow doctors without medical boards, get out of the medical system. just like donald trump campaigned on, didn't give veterans real choice so there's competition and the va is forced not to engage in this practice so they can keep veterans in the system so that is why you have legislation, the veterans empowerment act which would give that choice and this is something donald trump campaigned on, incredibly
