>> club soda with a dash of white wine but mostly club soda . mostly club soda. then came up with a signature drink for you . guess what i have for you? i'm going to tell you when i stole it. >> permanently? i love you. >>. >> my personal nothing andi brought it for you, i'm not a fee . >> where do we go?

is . >>. >> we did resistance is futile, why did you write this book mark. >> i watch msnbc most of every day, i leave the new york times and i kind of consider myself an expert on resistance. the country has lost his mind. the left has lost hismind, it's not just the country, it's apparently not good for them . there's a lot of great advice or the resistance in my book if they want to the trump. i'm kind of mad at him, if you follow me you know that. i think it's something he's actually done as opposed to making up these crazy theories about russian collusion which as you know from my column on the book if
you read it, it's one of those crackpot reflections that he startedafter wikileaks . >>. [inaudible] i think they're in more trouble. i keep wanting to be mad at trump and the resistancekeeps driving me back . but i will point out that anna was right in the green room yesterday and all of you were wrong about the wyoming governor'sprimary . [inaudible] >> if you could trump right now and you knew he was listening, what would you tell him? >> can't i tell him more than one thing? you don't need congress to build the wall, just build it . .2, hired jared.
>> what do you think about speaker ryan? his plan is a murder suicide. >> technically the additional last question but it allows me to elaborate on my answer. jared is a nice guy but as we've all seen, his policy has been approved by the swap and that's because jared doesn't have a long history and politics. i don't think he understood our earth shattering his father-in-law's candidacy was and he's the one always reaching trump to go with the establishment, do what mitch mcconnell wants, don't build the wall. that is what put trump in the white house and trump space is where this power comes from. he's likesuperman and jared is sitting there waiting kryptonite in front of him
all the time . >> thank you very much. >> i love you after all. >> thank you. thank you, jordan. thank you. it's a jet pack charger, it changed my life . >> will get for jeremy and drink. >> you still have this might? >> that for c-span. you don't mind, do you? >> now you know we can't make fun of people even though i really like you. >> is a cocktail party so i'm very depressed because otherwise everyone comes up my collarbone. >> i was virtually bumped on
>>. >> i went around everyplace and they're alltelling is a lot of money . trump spends less money than any candidate since lbj. >>. >> i kept saying he's too old. >> even i would say this, every republican candidate. says at the beginning of every speech, >> and at the end of the speech, then he had the speech in the media and if you want to answer me, i challenge you to ask him. >> and if you don't ask him, he's the one who really knows.
>> i'm coming for take back the night or whatever it's called. >> that's tonight. >> i'm coming back for a couple of the people there. [inaudible] it's after labor day. >> he's a big troublemaker. >> a small child kicks my drink over but it wasn't my fault . no ice, a little bit of white wine please.
>> it would be more white wine and club soda. >> and i have water please? >> tell me your name again. >> it's so great. i knew your little thumbnail sketch. >> a final organization you work for. i must say, breitbart is totally killing it. all my friends go to breitbart. >> everyone tells me that privately. >>.
[inaudible] >> when i say cincinnati, i mean dallas, texas. so glad we are doing this. >> thank you, thank you, thank . thank thank you so much. this is so great. >> i wanted to say hi real quick and they got here late. >> i i miss being in l.a. i want to just go -- are you guys? [inaudible] i think i'm probably going to stay for a while. i don't know. it depends because i've like boston, philadelphia, coming back to washington for that thing.
i think i may just stay. i like l.a. >> i'll tell you later. >> we have lots of regular media people here. so if we can trap them in one part of the room we can start my children media plan. -- kill the media plan. mingle. very sneaky. >> they blend in. we will probably keep them. [inaudible] okay, are we ready?
>> i'm so happy for you. >> so glad you're not going on the road. >> i agree. >> no photos. hang on. i'm about to go out. >> i consider ann coulter one of only handful of friends in a business where it's difficult to my friends. one of the reasons why i love her 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 west, that's about it. but she is truly authentic, smart and funny. and she, i have always maintained if she had the writing staff is any of the jimmies on late-night tv and the platform, she would be bigger times ten. and as evidenced by she is a true free-market success success with 12 and eventually now 13
best-selling books with the "resistance is futile" which we're here to celebrate tonight. the book i think is essentially a cheat for how trump voters really think about a lot of issues of today. and as ann notes for those in the established media or the resistance if you got any are watching this on some social media platform, there's been enough of us to win 36 36 and t the president elected. i think it's a great line but yet for some reason we are not interesting enough for cnn, msnbc of the world. ann that only backs up a lot of her jokes and arguments and witticisms with examples. occasionally she doesn't with her signature which example after example after example after example. those of you who know the book that occasionally there is occasionally a sample. the revelations in this book which i loved and hopefully you
guys look, "resistance is futile", here's a few i wanted to share just get some of your reaction to these for return it over. first of all, the resistance is killing comity. second of all, in america it is now more difficult to enforce laws if you against illegal aliens. all of a sudden the media believes the bushes are okay. these are all new things. the infamous "access hollywood" tape does not actually include any evidence donald trump abused a woman let alone women. in 2018 violence is speech and speech is violence. i think that one is pretty profound. the establishment media believes simultaneously that trump is an evil genius to rig an election with putin without leaving evidence, and is simultaneously the most incompetent president of all time. russia is actually not our greatest enemy. this is very important. 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 as 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 there considered sacrosanct by the establishment media. if you believe this the intelligence community is sacrosanct, free from sin, then ann is about of iraqi wmd should like to sell the you after thek signing. the media consider john brennan who called the president treasonous and has a terrible record, the media consider him a straight shooter. obama did not actually take election battling seriously, and the special counsel only happen because james comey gave the world the impression trump was already being investigated, which he was not. trump actually one not because of some sort of russian battling
for the fraction of the fraction of the percent of money that was dedicated by russians to influencing people in social media but because he had the simple ideas of enforcing our borders and ripping up nafta. let's hope he get some of that done. last but not least ann coulter as a ability to debunk to use program for cnn and msnbc in just over 250 pages. so i cannot recommend the "resistance is futile" anymore and without further delay, the one and only ann coulter. >> thank you. thank you. i didn't promise the short speech, but since i don't get the balcony of their unaccredited you than ever for own style speech. i did think come 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."
so everything that's happening, happening well today, don't worry, it's covered in "resistance is futile." for example, been a lot of talk about unindicted co-conspirators today. and i do think, i do think we have that. chuck schumer and nancy pelosi for the death of molly tibbetts i think our fully unindicted co-conspirators. as for michael cohen and his plan, his offer to take a bullet for the president, i don't think any of us realize that my bullet what he meant was a light spring breeze. but as is described in the book and i do cover both manafort's and cohen, wow, two years and all that got is a campaign finance violation for it. i mean i am disappointed the president fooled around with these two floozies and didn't have the decency to do it in the
privacy of the oval office. but the actual crucial point of the campaign finance violation after all this time, if it's all true and he is guilty, oh my gosh, he will have to pay a fine. the second point is, i mean, the crux of the campaign finance violation which i know msnbc is not covering this, i'm not sure about any of the networks, it has to be something you would have been in your normal life. i think donald trump has kind of a long history of paying settlements, paying grifters. why isn't the settlement of trump university and unfair contribution to his campaign? it's the same thing and, of course, if this sort of thing or even, even if he did it, even if they could prove he did it
exclusively because his run for office and really other than that he didn't care, his name is on all the buildings, that mind out if others find out, no, nothing to do with that. it's just the election, if that were enough to win a conviction, john edwards would be executed already for what he was doing. the book really does cover everything. i think you're going to enjoy maybe not as much as the bible, but i'll go and sign the note and thank you all for coming. thank you, number one, for breitbart. thank you, breitbart, for every day. thank you. [applause] >> i think i know where it is. it's on the other table. >> nice to see you.

mind the original definition of the word free in english is not in bondage. the most meaningful thing about freedom is that mankind has a sickening history of slavery. here in america we have freedom because we have rights. the same way we can get mixed up about freedom and we can get mixed up about our rights. there are two kinds of rights, political scientists call them positive rights and negative rights. sometimes we call them opportunities and privileges. i call them get out of here rights, and give me rights. politicians are always telling us about our give me rights, especially the politician we have in the white house right now, as in give me some healthcare insurance. our bill of rights doesn't mention any give me rights. our bill of rights is all about
our freedom to say i have got god, guns, and the big mouth and if the jury find me guilty the judge will throw my bill. this is our right to be left alone, our freedom from interference usually, government. >> you can watch this and all other booktv programs from the past 20 years at booktv.org. type the author's name in the search bar at the top of the page.
