5:32 pm
programs saying how he would not vote for any tax cut that added to the deficit. as this escalated, the speaker of the house tried to play piece maker, but corker himself stopped just short of calling the president of the united states a liar. you guys can easily check and see what has occurred. all of it is untrue. he's federally untruthful. bobbies going to vote for tennessee, vote for america, going to vote for tax reform because he knows it's in the best interest of americans. >> and this was the scene at the senate today as the president arrived. this had nothing to do with bob corker. this was a pro testor that somehow got into the press area of the united states senate as the president and leader

5:35 pm
started the economy. >> of course not everybody believes or agrees with the idea that tax reform would affect or create 4 percent growth, but it is certainly surprising to hear a conservative, you know, so forcefully say that the economy needs us especially when the president seems to regularly take to twitter to tout the success of the stock market. keep in mind only about 50 percent of americans are even invested in the market. i asked press secretary sarah hug bi sanders about this big picture idea and of course the comments from grover nor quits about the state of the economy. take a listen. earlier today i spoke with grover nor quits, a conservative voice prn r pushing for tax re form. he characterizes the economy and he says, quote, the economy itself still sucks. what's your reaction to that and for those who people who aren't benefiting from the success of the park the right now? i think there's also a lot of other things beyond ju

with it, it's about a poll knees and princess. the kids love it last year the character maw i, disney actually pulled it off the market because it was so controversial. this year, the costume from ma want a teams to be an issue. it's all about cultural awareness and cultural appreciation much as i said before, it's not cut and dry. we talked to a couple of people just a little while ago that had completely different thoughts on the issue. i think it's pretty ridiculous. if you're referring to the disney thing and and ma want a, let kids be kids. they're not trying to steel anybody's culture and they shouldn't have to be worried about being pressured about it. just let them dress up as whoever they want. we should be culturally sensitive and the not go over the line. a

example is tough. something that is just a little too much. >> so you can see there, a lot of folks just think let the kids be kids. generally speaking kids aren't trying to interfer with anyone's culture. if you're last minute shopping, there's some great things that can't be culturally insensitive you've got a hammer head shark, a squid, an okay that pus. everybody can dress up like that . even a rubber chicken. if you think about this in terms of having fun. i think commonsense is the way to go. and jim and sarah, i think what a lot of people are saying, it's kind of that line that you you you kind of know when you're crossing over this particular line into something that's culturally not only unaware but maybe a little l culturally offensive. what do you guys think? >> i think it's one of those things that there are certain cuss tooms out
5:54 pm
level of commonsense, but sometimes, too, it offends somebody some way. you can't please everybody. i think it's interesting because this is a kids costume we're talking about . i think a lot of times it's the adults that wear the offensive costumes. if you're going to a party to be a little whacky. when you're talking about a disney character? a. to me, it surprises me that somebody would be offended by it , but honestly i did not see the costume. i saw, you know, the movie, but what is in the costume that makes it so offensive? is it something. >> the whole idea of cultural appropriation. >> there we go, gary. >> a lot of people think when you're a little bit contact lies ing the whole thing that's when you've stepped over
