coming up on 20 minutes past the hour, time for your monday edition of "scrambled politics." all right, there are reports that a big name could be hopping into a key political race. sorry. not joe biden just yet. cbs is reporting though that congressman paul ryan is "open to running for speaker" but there is reportedly a big caveat. he doesn't want to give in to the demands of the far right freedom caucus in exchange for votes. speaking of the far right, senator ted cruz sat down with chuck todd on "meet the press" to talk 2016 and somewhat surprising take on the trump campaign. >> i think donald's campaign has been immensely beneficial for our campaign, and the reason is he's framed the central issue of this republican primary as who will stand up to washington. >> you knew we'd have to do it at some point here, right?
biden watch, the vice president will share the stage with jimmy carter tomorrow night in an event that is honoring walter mondale. carter gave us an update on his fight with cancer yesterday as he taught sunday school. >> in the middle of december they're going to do another mri scan of my brain and my body to see what the progress is being made but until then i'm just trusting in god to take care of me and i've been really appreciative of all the good wishes i've had. >> definitely we wish him well. if if you are standing you might want to find a seat at least for a second. why? well lindsay lohan says she might just run for president in 2020. part of her plan as detailed on instagram of course is to take care of all the children suffering in the world. now of all the problems with this scenario, here's perhaps the biggest one. she won't be 35, which is a requirement for president. but just for fun, buy it now, kanye/lohan 2020 stickers. here is your second helping
of larry david's impression of bernie sanders. >> not a fan of the banks. they transform on the middle class, they control washington, and why do they chain all their pens to the desks? who's trying to steal a pen from a bank? you know what i don't understand, america? these podiums. what are you supposed to do with your elbows? rest them on top? they're too short. >> that is your morning dish of "scrambled politics." i could watch that for days. 22 minutes past the hour, joined by politico reporter lee munsel. >> good morning, betty. >> had trump been president during 9/11 his immigration policy would have prevented the attacks so says he. has he gone way too far? clearly jeb bush is fighting mad over it. >> obviously and for republicans an off limits sort of thing to
say that president bush could be blamed for 9/11, for democrats as well, not a talking point people typically go for. donald trump doesn't shy away from different talking points and also walked it back a little pit. he said he didn't blame bush for 9/11 but was just saying it happened on his watch. obviously jeb bush is going after that comment. he's not at all kind of letting that slide, but what it does is it forces jeb bush to defend his brother's record rather than his own. in some way it's a smart political move which is what a lot of jeb bush's opponents is to get him on the record defending his brother's presidency. >> on one of the sunday political shows jeb bush was asked blaming hillary clinton for benghazi was the equivalent of blaming his brother for 9/11. an interesting question. will his answer satisfy voters? >> his answer was those are different scene nair yoes and the questions that remain about
hillary clinton's response to requests for a more security at the embassy, they need to find out more information was what he said before you can really determine who is to blame or what the blame there is, but absolutely that was an interesting point that was brought up by jake tapper. >> quickly speaking of clinton, how important of a week is this in this benghazi investigation? >> well, it's huge. trey gowdy's panel has been looking into benghazi and looking into what happened and they're ready to kind of bring a lot of those findings to light and they're going to take the time to talk to hillary clinton about it. obviously it's not necessarily what she wants to be talking about at this point in the campaign. >> we'll see if any of clearing the air occurs here, although i have a feeling it's still a long road ahead. leigh, thanks for joining us today. we appreciate it. just ahead, details on a big change coming for drone operateors. tina fey returns to the "snl" anchor desk and gets an indecent proposal.
