2:37 am
majorities come and go so what was done would be good for the republicans. but the day will come, the democrats are going to control the senate and what's done is done. >> but however, when mr. trump was running for office, one of the reasons why some conservatives and republicans who voted for him was because of the supreme court. what people sit around now and discuss his first days and shortly there after what his legacy is. you cannot argue the fact that he will have a lost lasting effect on the supreme court. >> one was named barack obama, the other was named neil gorsuch.
2:38 am
i never met him because they said look out for him, he's going to be a senator one day. underestimated him. >> gorsuch is as solid as they get. even in law school, he had a conservative view of the constitution and how best to preserve this document and this bill. he had a clear way of thinking and he never backed down. he would raise his hand and make the conservative case and do it respectfully. >> so there's no doubt in your mind that he's conservative? >> no.
2:39 am
that will serve that well. i mean what more do you want? a judge with decency, rationality. he has it in spades. >> what happens if the president gets to pick another supreme court justice? >> well, he's get it. and without the worry of needing that 66 super majority, trump is free to pick anyone he wants. other times conservatives could not be passed but he will pick whoever he wants. it's a good thing in that often times conservatives and we're always labelled far right. there's some good constructionalists who deserve an opportunity

of years. >> i think the strategy is to say the jews don't belong there. for the holocaust, they gave them palestine. their goal is to destroy israel. this was not a consolation prize for israel, this is the constitution. the jewish people thrived in the land of israel and they never left. even when the iranians got tired of jewish revolt, they never left. even when they expelled hundreds of thousands, the jews never left. every time the door was open even just a crack for jews to come back to their homeland, the 1

2:53 am
ran a mock. but i think they go too far. i think the right response like i said is to be proud of who you are but within reason. be proud of who you are you should never denegrate the other. the healthy response is to be proud of someone that breeds their own heritage. breed and respect for you breeds respect for others. if i see myself alone. if i'm balanced, i will have respect for others. so i think israel is a great express of national pride while still treating arabs as national
