we are right over the bar. what are they called, the things you know the police. >> dumbwaiter? >> yeah, we need a dumbwaiter to get a drink. here you go. you are welcome. i thought you were taking me to murder me. >> like at the opera house. when they first brought me appeared-- [inaudible] >> very nice. don't cry for me washington. >> ready? go. sorry, jeremy. [laughter]
[inaudible conversations] >> jordan, are we ready? >> no rush, just hurry up. >> he was in the rockville musical theater production of "anything goes". >> i've never seen that. >> great. >> beaumont-- oh, oh, yeah. it was funny seeing you yesterday. i'm jealous. i will just have to sink in some time. that's hilarious. that's basically what allen has told me. allen's dad wrote all the great marx brothers and i say the reason he's a conservative is
because his father was such a marxist. >> puns are the lowest form of humor. >> i never know where the line is. okay. so, "resistance is futile", why did you write this book? >> well, because i watch msnbc every night, most of every day. i read the "new york times" and i kind of considered myself an expert on the resistance. the country has lost its mind. the left has lost its mind. is not good for the country. it's certainly not good for them, i mean, there's a lot of great advice for the resistance in my book if they actually want to defeat trump. i'm kind of mad at him. if you follow me on twitter, you know that. why don't they go after
him on some should-- something he's actually done as opposed to make it of these crazy theories about russian collusion? as you know from my column or the book if you have read it is just another crackpot hillary deflection that she started after whistling. >> and they start criticizing his policies taking sheep shots at america. >> i keep looking to be mad at trump and the resistance keeps driving me back. >> how will the midterms play out? >> i will point out that and was right in the green room yesterday and all of you were wrong about the wyoming governor's primary. kind of bold i kept saying. >> last question is if you could speak to trump right now and you knew he would listen to one thing what would you tell him? >> can't i tell him more than one thing?
>> what is your last? >> you don't need congress to build the wall. just build it. port number two, fire jared. >> what you think about speaker ryan being last to the mat? like his plan is like a murder suicide pact. >> that's the last question but allows me to elaborate on my answer. i like jerry appeared jared's a nice guy, but as we have all seen trumps policies have been subdued by the swamp and i think that is because jarrett doesn't have a long history and politics. i don't think he quite understood how earth shattering his father-in-law's candidacy wine and he is the one always pushing trump to go with the establishment, duet mitch mcconnell wants. don't build the wall. no, that isn't what put trump in the white house and trumps bases where his power comes from.
he's like superman and jarrett is sitting there waiting kryptonite in front of him all the time. >> thank you very much. >> i love you after all. [laughter] >> jordan, thank you. >> thank you, jordan. thank you. really, thank you for the jet pack charger. changed my life. >> i will bring you back to the world. >> thank you and we will get poor jeremy a drink. >> that is for c-span. you don't mind, do you? now you know we will not make fun of people at the times even though i would really like to. thank you. well, it's a cocktail party. i'm wearing flats because otherwise everyone comes up to my collarbone.

[laughter] we need to catch up.

[inaudible conversations] >> okay. are we ready? >> but don't take that as a slight, i just want to be the proud papa watching -- [laughter] >> by the way, that can -- [inaudible] just blew me away with that google stuff. >> amazing. we have to catch up on this. you won't believe what's going on. >> and. [inaudible] he won't e-mail me on google. will not accept e-mails from me on a google mail -- >> i know. he's obsessed. >> i love him. >> i'm still working with him on some stuff. i'm trying to get him to d.c. to meet with people in -- [inaudible] >> good, good, good. no, he's really smart. >> yeah, i know. >> that was really good. >> if you think about this entire narrative has changed. that event will go down as -- >> yes, yes.
>> it's a marker now. >> [inaudible] [inaudible conversations] >> hello. i haven't seen you for such a long time. >> i know, a long time. i'm so happy for you. >> i'm just glad you're not going omarosa saw on me. >> never. never, never. >> [inaudible] >> yes, but no photos. hang on. i'm about to go up. >> i consider ann coulter one of only a handful of friends in a business where it's very difficult to have friends. and one of the reasons why i love ann so much is because she is one of the few fully self-realized people in the united states right now. i can think of a couple that come to mind, one of them occupies the white building down the block, another one, maybe kanye, i don't know. maybe that's it. just ann, trump and kanye. [laughter] that's about it. but she is truly authentic, smart and funny. and she, i have always maintained, if she had the writing staff as any of the
jimmies on late might tv and the platform, she'd be bigger times ten. and it's evidenced by she's a true free market success. resistance is futile, which we're here the celebrate tonight. [applause] so the book, i think, is essentially a cheat for how trump voters really think about a lot of the issues of today. and as ann notes for those of you in the establishment media or even the resistance if you got in here or are watching this on some social media platform, there's barely enough of us to win 30 states and get the president elected. [laughter] that's ann's line. i think it's a great one. yet we're not interesting enough to the cnns or msnbcs of the world. ann not only backs up a lot of her jokes and arguments and witticisms with example, but occasionally she does it with her signature which is example after example after example
after example. those of you who know the book know there's even occasion aingly a fifth example. the revelations in this book in, "the resistance is futile," here's a few of them i wanted to share before we turn it over to ann. first of all, the resistance is killing comedy. second of all, in america it is now more difficult to enforce laws if you're against illegal aliens. all of a sudden the media believes the bushs are okay. these are all new things, relatively. [laughter] the infamous access hollywood tape did not actually include any evidence donald trump abused a woman, let alone will. in 2018 violence is speech and speech is violence. i think that one's actually pretty profound. the establishment media believes simultaneously that trump is an evil genius who rigged an election with putin without leaving evidence and is simultaneously the most incompetent president of all
time. [laughter] russia is actually not our greatest enemy. this is very important for you establishment media types. you might want to read that one. one campaign did collude with the russians in this election, and that was hillary clinton's. robert mueller is constantly mentioned as being a republican, yet was not constantly mentioned is his team is about 15 hillary clinton donors and democrats. the intelligence community has the worst track record of just about any group in washington, yet they're considered sacrosanct by the establishment media. and if you believe this intelligence community is sacrosanct, free from sin, then ann had a pile of iraqi wmd she'd like to sell you after the book signing. the media considered john brennan, who called the president treasonous and has a tomorrow record which ann goes into, the media consider him a straight shooter. obama did not actually take election meddling seriously, and the special counsel only happened because james comey gave the world the impression
trump was already being investigated, which he was not. trump actually won not because of some sort of russian meddling or the fraction of a fraction of a percent of money that was dedicated by russians to influencing people on social media, but because he had the simple ideas of enforcing our borders and ripping you have nafta. let's hope he gets some of that down. some of that done. so i cannot recommend "the resistance is futile" any more, and without further delay, the one and only ann coulter. [applause] >> thank you. thank you. i didn't promise a short speech, but since i don't get the balcony up there, i'm not going to give you an eva peron style speech. [laughter] first, i should say if you want to know what is going to happen through your life and through
the world, probably the best book for that is the bible. but the second best book is "resistance is futile." [laughter] so everything that's happening, been happening today, don't worry, it's covers. -- it's covered. it's been a lot of talk about unindicted co-conspirators today, and and i do think we have that. chuck schumer and nancy pelosi for the death of mollie tibbetts, i think, are fully unindicted co-conspirators. as for michael cohen and his plan, his offer to take a bullet for the president -- [laughter] i don't think any of us realized that by bullet what he meant was a light spring breeze. [laughter] but as is described in the book and i do cover both manafort and cohen, wow, two years and all they've got is a campaign
finance violation for, i mean, i am disappointed that the president fooled around with these two news says and didn't have the decency to do it in the privacy of the oval office. [laughter] but the actual crucial points of the campaign finance violation issue after all of this time is, number one, if it's all true and he's guilty, oh, my gosh, he'll have to pay a fine. the second point is, i mean, the crux of any campaign finance violation -- which i know msnbc is not covering this, i'm not sure about any other networks dub it has to be something you wouldn't have done in your normal life. i think donald trump has kind of a long history of paying settlements, paying gifters. i mean, why isn't his settlement of trump university an unfair contribution to his campaign? it's the same thing.
and, of course, if the sort of thing were even -- even if he did it, i mean, even if they could prove that he did it exclusively because he was running for office and really other than that he didn't care. yeah, his name is on all his buildings, doesn't mind if ivanka finds out or barron or his wife, no, it has nothing to do with that, it's just the election. if that were enough to win a conviction, john edwards would be executed already -- [laughter] for what he was doing. the book really does cover everything. i think you're going to enjoy it. maybe not as much as the bible. but i'll go sign them now and thank you all for coming. thank you, number one, for breitbart! thank you, breitbart, for every day. thank you. [applause] did you find it? i think i know where it is, it's on that other table.
>> [inaudible] >> thank you. nice to see you. hello. >> hi. >> you have that great book. >> do you remember me? [inaudible] >> nice to meet you again. >> [inaudible] >> oh! i love that building. i told george this is the one book both his wife and he will agree on. >> i told her i was going to be here, but i didn't hear back from her -- >> you know, i think i invited her, but then i noticed -- oh, darn, this is running out. i think i have another one. i noticed i had an open e-mail on my desktop. i've been kind of busy. okay, let's see. yeah, i've got another one. i hope this one works. oh, good, thank you. i brought some. you can throw that one away. it's not going to get better.

[inaudible conversations] >> natali. is that italian? the italians are looking -- you distracted me -- are looking very good with manafort right now. [laughter] >> we are. he mix us look great be -- makes us look great. >> seriously. >> [inaudible] >> thank you. nice seeing you. >> [inaudible] >> oh! nice to see you again.

[laughter] >> you look great yourself. love your dress. >> thank you. >> [inaudible] >> what do you do, art? >> [inaudible] >> oh. we need a wall. >> we do. that's, i have actually said that a number of times. >> i assume you read sam quinones' book? i can't wait to meet him. >> [inaudible] he's very accurate.

[inaudible] >> tell the president -- [inaudible] nice to meet you, handsome art. >> ann, i'm brian. >> i know you're brian. >> i work for the -- [inaudible] secretary azar at hhs. >> oh! >> we're delighted that you're doing this event, thank you. >> i watched his swearing in,
and i realized the reason i was watching it is, it's trump, who knew? he might start making fun of elizabeth warren. >> so nice to see you. thank you. >> i know. you're so pretty. what a nice outfit that is. >> [inaudible] >> marlene -- [inaudible] beautiful name. >> thank you. i like you. >> marlena. isn't there a song -- >> [inaudible] >> yeah. >> [inaudible] >> okay. >> thank you. >> thank you.
