2:14 am
to make? >> i got to tell you, this is either incredibly stupid and naïve or deeply calculated, neither of which are good scenarios. you cannot have a candidate and her chief of staff controlling a pack that is working on behalf of electing that candidate. this is campaign 101. you cannot coordinate at a level. there are couple issues at stake. if there was improper disclosure of independent expenditures, illegal income contributions to benefit the campaign, potential coordination, those are fines. you'll -- they will definitely get find on those things. the biggest question is did aoc and her chief of staff willingly and knowingly try to hide their control of this pack and if they did so you start to talk about jail time. jillian: even if it was a mistake for argument sake is
2:15 am
that still okay? >> know, it is not okay. you are going to get find. if this is provable, it looks suspicious with these potential contributions and potential coordination this is campaign 101. you cannot coordinate because of the limits in federal elections with pacs versus campaigns. i'm staggered to think someone thought a camp had -- a candidate could be on the board of the pack and her chief of staff as working on behalf of that campaign. the thing is they took control of this pack in december 2017. they did not lose control until august 2018. in between aoc winter primary in that district, you basically win the general, very suspicious timing. rob: the primary was the whole thing. once you got the nomination you were good to go. what do you think the defense will be? in their minds how will they concoct a defense to this? >> if it is naivety and stupidity i have a hard time believing they will look at that
2:16 am
and go we are not talking insignificant amounts of money, almost $1 million but what is interesting to me is we have aoc who sanctimoniously moralize us to us about climate change and she has a massive carbon footprint and lectured us on dark money and politics and it looks like she is probably guilty of doing the exact same thing, just a sanctimonious hypocrite. jillian: let's talk about the green new deal which we know would potentially eliminate air travel. listen to this soundbite of a reporter asking alexandria ocasio cortez why she was flying. >> tell me why you are flying today. >> i needed to go to work. >> a couple hours of my constituents time. jillian: presuming she was going new york to dc there are trains that do that.

2:18 am
a half, he takes the same amount of time. unbelievable she would give that ammunition to the other side because that is the best ammunition you can get. >> i choose to take either train or i drive, going to the airport, going through security, it is just as much time to do that, 21/2 hours, 2 hours and 45 minutes, longer on the nor'easter. this is one of the things where it is again you have to be kidding me. that is your best excuse? i'm trying to save a couple hours of constituents time? it doesn't pass the smell test. the other thing i point out, she's $37,000 on huber at $8000 -- when i come to new york i choose to use the subway because it is more convenient on traffic time. rob: it boggles the mind initially connected by trains. jillian: you can take your liquids if you fly so there is that.

heather: do high school students have a constitutional right to support donald trump if they choose? arizona republicans, punished for making -- make america great again here on campus. kelly townsend is a state representative looking for an answer and she joined me now. we appreciate it. what do you think you will get from this? >> we already have actions happening right now in that there are questions about various versions of the story we were hearing and attorneys that were involved and one of those attorneys issues a retraction because the school says before the video started the mother came into the school yelling, using the f word in front of students and the attorney should a demand for retraction because
2:51 am
there was more to the video that was cut off because the mother didn't want to release that but it shows from the moment she got out of the car and went into the building there was no yelling, no cursing or bombs. the school chose to fabricate a story about this mother to discredit her and because of that reason and many others, we asked the attorney general to investigate. rob: the theme was party in the us and some students were disciplined as a result of this. let's listen to one of those students. >> everyone is allowed to have their own political view. that shouldn't affect the way you treat a student and discipline a student. jillian: do you think high school students should be able
2:52 am
to wear this gear and show their support at school? >> doesn't matter what i think. what matters what the supreme court thinks and 7-2 decision that students have pure speech rights that they can express themselves on shirts, if they want to wear a shirt with a cross or a shirt that says trump or that says obama they have that right. what the problem is is when someone in a position of authority is offended by that speech they have the power to retaliate, to punish, to treat badly these kids and to make them take the shirt off and tell them they need to leave the property of the school because they have a flag they don't want and you can hear the video, that is wrong. jillian: the attorney general issued a response, rather short response, quote, we receive the letter, we look at all the facts, we don't know enough about the situation.
2:53 am
what happens next? >> it is really important that everyone begins to have a conversation about what the first amendment is and what we do to deal with situations when we see something we don't like, when we hear something we don't like. i hear people saying let's ban everything altogether. that is not what the first amendment is for. the first amendment is to protect the undesirable speech. we wouldn't need it if there wasn't undesirable speech. we have to accept that and understand people have that right and not react in a violent way. we have people being violent over m aga hats and those things. what they are doing is siphoning other people's rights out of fear of retaliation. jillian: we only have a couple seconds and i'm curious. have you ever seen another time in our country's history where this is been a problem trickling into even high schools. >> it is really bad because of lack of knowledge of what our
2:54 am
rights are, talking about the nsa out of fear of terrorism, recycling mass shootings, and people having basically a reaction where they become violent. it is important for america to open up the constitution, read it and understand what that means. the price of freedom is just that. we have to accept there is risks, uncomfortable things to deal with but that is our country. heather: we appreciate you taking the time this morning, we are coming right back. your tossing and turning isn't restlessness, it's gas! gas-x relieves pressure, bloating and discomfort... . . one swipe.
