let's cut taxes for billionaires and let's try to do the things that george w. bush did before the economic recession, that that will give us a different outcome this time than the last time it did. >> now look austan you know better than anyone when ray dan d reagan did what i'm advocating we didn't see 184,000 jobs average. we were seeing 300,000, 400,000 jobs a month. we know this works. >> your timing is confused. if you recall the reason we had a massive boom in 1984 is because paul voelker cut the interest rate ten percentage points in the run-up to the boom. when george w. bush most recently did exactly the thing that donald trump is proposing, we had the weakest recovery on record followed by a massive recessi recession. >> didn't we have a recession in '82 and '38 after ronald reagan had his huge reslashing budget? this is e10 for my producers. . is the employment growth in the economy, the change since june of 2009. you so he that blue line, that's full time employment, really going up high. we also have seen finally income growth start to go in the right direction. i thi

take us back to the recession of george bush, those policies will hurt african-americans and poor whites. republicans are scared of african-americans and poor whites and latinos coming together in the south, because if that happens, the solid south is over and they would no longer have a stronghold on the political electorate in this country. >> leah, the book you wrote gets to this challenge. for african-american republicans, they're trying to sort of thread a line of really supporting the policies that are best for their own community, right? for black folks. but also existing inside of a party that to reverend barber's point, often on a policy basis or even rhetorically, i'll fix it for you. i'll swoop in and be this great white hope because your communities are so bad, that's tough to defend. >> not only that. if we look at current polling, it shows black republicans, black conservatives actually don't support donald trump. so that says something, when you don't have the support of the black members within your party and who are very vocal about not supporting whoever the nomi

intelligence officials and putting in instead somebody who is very, very partisan. george w. bush did not allow karl rove to be on the national security council and that is an administration that many people on the left had issues with, so this putting bannon in, getting rid of any intelligence officials is unprecedented and not good for our national security. >> malcolm nance, karl rove didn't have a sort of bizarre fettish for creating lennonist revolution across europe on a racial and religious basis. let's talk a little bit about who is actually involved in making these decisions, not just bannon. let's listen to what rudy giuliani, who was on fox news yesterday talking about who donald trump did consult with, if not his own national security apparatus. take a listen. >> so when he first announced it, he said muslim ban. he called me up and said put a commission together, show me the right way to do it legally. and what we did was we focused on instead of religion, danger. the areas of the world that create danger for us, which is a factual basis, not a religious basis. perfectly

stark difference even from george b. bush responded by waging a war against an entirely uninvolved country iraq that had nothing to do with 9/11. even despite that, you never heard the rhetoric out of the bush administration that was anti-muslim. as a matter of fact the then republican president went out of his way to say islam is a way of appeasement to hold ramadan in the white house. thisresident went out of his way to dohe opposite. there was no ramadan acknowledgement by this administration sass has been the case since george w. bush. so that change. is that the result of the republican party moving in a ready cal directi radical direction or a donald trump phenomenon? >> it's both. it's definitely the radicalization of the parties. i was on another network where it was -- people feel that all the time, that watched what i had to say, because i believe that islam was not an entire religion of terrorists. and i think it's very, very scary, because, yes, there are 3,000 of people of interest in london or the uk. 3,000, g compared to billions, peaceful loving muslims. and it's re

truth, make it funny or they're kill you. george carlin's political humor is the reason i got into the game. i think that "snl" did a great job of being fair in their critiques of secretary clinton in that sketch, which is very important. but at the end of the day. donald trump only needs to get about 48% of the people who show up to vote to vote for him. if you factor in johnson and stein. so 48% of the people who show up have to vote for donald trump. so comedy and ridicule has always been one of the most valuable social tools we have. it might not reach all the voters but it will reach their kids because at this point the goal of that sketch seems to me to show donald trump supporters that they're being suckers. >> dean, donald trump, a, seems to to be very sensitive to ridicule. that seems to be part of his psychological makeup. but there has become this culture. even people who support donald trump admit supporting trump is kind of -- not kind of, it's become uncool. socially unacceptable to a lot of people. so did ridicule make those voters double down and say we're fighting

president run on doom and gloom except richard nixon. >> george w. bush won as a compassionate conservative. his dad wanted to be kinder and gentler. even when nixon ran for president, he was kind of an angry fellow but wasn't capitalizing on the anger the way donald trump is. we've never had a president who has been pessimistic but has exploited fear and loathing as much as trump is trying to do. the speech leaked a few hours before he gave it. i ran into a republican speechwriter who was walking with his head down saying, i can't believe this. and there's no mention of god or religion in this speech. >> or the men and women serving in the military. >> yes. it was almost mandatory for any republican speech. it was all about violence and trump and "i will protect you." >> it did feel like a speech that spoke to the fears of a very particular part of the country, white men, and women but mostly men, who feel there is this menace everywhere and that the country is deep and dark and horrible. >> this conversation is reminding me of something you said at the top of the show when we

? >> sad to say i think they had a free hand with ari sharon in the government and with george bush as the president of the united states. colin powell notwithstanding every time colin powell walked out to try to do something about it, dick cheney would cut the branch off or the president would cut the branch off and powell would be stymied. i don't think president obama did all that much in the eight years he was in office, either, and now we've got a president who clearly, as you just intimated, wants to let bibi netanyahu do whatever he wants to do and what netanyahu wants to do is have the golan, have the west bank, have anything else he can get his hands on permanently. >> and there doesn't seem to be anyone in the trump government pushing back on that. i want to put a map up. this entire region is rethreatening to go up in flames. iran, which is, of course, the neighbor to iraq, the country we attacked during the george w. bush era. the obama administration was able to create an accord with the goal of reducing iran's drive towards nuclear weapons. foreign policy magazine now rep

talk about george w. bush got 44% and mitt romney only got about 25% and john mccain got i think 35% or something like that and that is a survivable number. but if that number becomes similar to what the black vote is in america, which is basically 90-10 democrat, there is a serious problem. and what makes it even worse tan a goldwater moment back in 1964 is that right now hispanics by far the lowest voter participation rate in the country. whites and blocks both vote at about 64% in this country. hispanics vote at less than 50%. that is the people who are eligible to vote. if that vote becomes not just 90-10 democrat and energized to go out and vote, it could be a serious problem. >> and i'll come back to you on this, daryle, because it is difficult to get arms around how broad this alt-right movement is. and some people want to do it online or on gamer or on redit and how in your view politically influential is this movement and what do they want, do they want political influence. >>? many respects when i see some of the organizations, when i see the national policy institute out

something that this kind of dynamic has been happening. it started under george w. bush -- it didn't start, but it ramped up under george w. bush, took off under obama, tamped down a little bit. jose and i, having not been born in this country, are not fish to be caught and released. we are human beings. it is sadly, as a journalist and as a mexican immigrant who is an american citizen, this notion of how we are spoken about, we are caught and released in some way, is the dehumanization, right? so these -- what's happening here is that actually the v.o.i.c.e. program is probably going to be a losing policy, in that president donald trump, who considers these policies to be winners, what that policy is going to do is allow us as journalists to have access to data which will ultimately, according to our analysis at latino usa and our colleagues, will prove that undocumented immigrants actually commit fewer crimes, that crime is actually decreased while immigration, including undocumented immigration, has increased in the united states. and that these are communities that are on the who

when it had been decimated under george w. bush. he went after voirt i.d. and went to the department of labor. there's 17,000 ploys, a huge bureaucracy. he reenjized that department, fought for overtime wage protections. he's shown he can deal with what would strike many people as cumbersome bureaucracy hard to work with and slow to change. he's done it twice. the key to what will be tom prelz's success will hinge on that word turnaround. he has a track record of that. >> unity is another word that's going to be at issue. >> exactly. >> e.j., one of the things that was surprising to me when i spoke to boast both jane yesterday and jeff weaver, bernie sanders' campaign manager in the presidential campaign, was how stark the divide seemed to be. even in the room after perez was named the new chair, the jeers that were coming from the back of the room, that the break between the so-called establishment and the bernie sanders wing of the party is still there. do you think the work that tom perez has is going to be a lot harder and a lot bigger despite the kind and wonderful words jane just
