bankruptcy. >> don't know the answer to that when it comes to the reelection, what did you think of the rally last night? >> i thought it sucked. >> you know, i don't know what to think of him. >> let's go to marissa in montana. >> good morning. thank you so much. i am so grateful for you. you guys do and endowed -- invaluable service. left, left, right, black, white, macaque, republican. please, america, open america, open your eyes. c-span had another very interesting story. why are you not headlining that.

is saying. he lies habitually now. it is sickening. how dare you say something about ejoe biden's son having a job ad saying he is not qualified when three of your five children are working at the white house and are qualified to do anything. >> you are saying hunter biden should not come up for conversation at all during this process? >> at all. how can his name be brought upka when beavis and butthead are in the white house right now. >> allen is next in ohio. eastside ohio. go ahead. >> good morning. i called as an independent. i just want to introduce myself as somebody that is basically socially liberal.
my interest is always in housing for the poor. i love president trump. i can't't get enough of the guy. d i love the rallies. most of my friends are on the democratic side. we love each other. we will not hate each other over politics. you cannot blame president trump you have to put the blame on people like me. my name is alan and i take the blame for it. martin luther king's niece, she, she loves the guy. i would like to see what the reason is. there must be something wrong. >> what do you love about the rallies? what do you get from the rallies when you watch them? >> we have never seen a president go off quite like that he is my best friend. hathis song is so senator. i love it. we know it is all sales talk. it is important. i love it. most of the stuff that i hear is
really -- i hate to use the typical word the swamp, but it is true. the way washington has evolved over the years, there was was not any one individual fault, but it's a mechanism that cannot be broken down. only these obnoxious people like trump can break it down. i will vote for him again. blame it like alan. it is people like me. >> that is alan. independent calling from ohio. jerry in detroit michigan. you are up next. >> good morning. greetings yet again. listening to the president last night when he takes swings. first that joe biden and then at barack obama, showing the lack of maturity that he has. also the blind hatred of those two from that predominantly
white and undoubtably racist audience. there is no doubt about that. when i listen to him slam barack obama, from the moment he first laid eyes on barack obama, the green eyed monster has been eating away at donald trump. he is extremely jealous of barack obama. >> because why? >> because, i think, barack obama is probablydm still more admired than he is. i think that speaks volumes about the level of racial hatred in his predominantly white audiences and in some of the white republicans calling on c-span this morning. they want desperately to not
only erase barack obama's, but basically erase him from the very pages of history. >> that is jerry calling on our lines for democrats. >> want to keep viewers up-to-date on capitol hill. congress away this week on recess. the impeachment inquiry continuing. including today we are expected to see another hearing behind closed doors. jeff bennett from nbc reporting that marie, the u.s. ambassador to ukraine is set to be disposed today at 10:00 p.m. eastern. sources say they expect her to show up for spite a white house bow valley not to cooperate. she would have to quit the state department before appearing. fox news previewing this
appearance today or perhaps not if she does not show. looking into how the trump miadministration has viewed the former ambassador. painting as a rogue state department employee her ouster in may came a midge rudy giuliani. those efforts, of course, triggering the triggering the impeachment inquiry. going on to note the use yesterday on the ukrainian front and the former ambassador involvement there. prosecutors unsealed an indictment alleging two donors were engaged in lobbying efforts in the u.s. on behalf of a ukrainian politician.

let's go to cassie and oklahoma. >> i'm a registered democrat. i no longer support them because of the lack of sovereignty that they are advocating. last night speech. they are lovely people. their homeland back many, many years ago, redivided by the british. the kurds had a home. they have not been our allies. even though they certainly need helpnd. the point trump was making was that they were helping them defend their area that they lived in.
the kurdish people need to be reassigned a homeland. british subdividedri the countrs and took their homeland away. i think that it was after world war i. we need to learn our history on that so we clearly understand what he meant. >> i want to w show you what the president said last night. turkey and syria coming up in the president's speech. >> in the case of turkey and syria and the kurds, we dissented 1000 troops to military conflict with turkey. [inaudible] know. you don't want to dory that. we could hit turkey very hard financially. we could mediate a deal between turkey and the kurds. let's mediate a deal. they've been fighting each other for hundreds of years.
we were artificially put there in this case by president obama. we did our job. i will tell you another thing.tr we have to be treated fairly. we are not treated fairly by other nations. we captured many many isis fighters. most of them came from europe. they came from all over these countries. imy called them myself in many cases. take your fighters. they said we don't want them, you take them. we did do a big favor. citizens of germany.or citizens of france. citizens of these variousnt countries in europe. take your fighters. we don't want them, sir. we don't want them. we do them a great favor and they won't take the fighters. we are doing some things that are pretty amazing. every once in a while, you have to change course and do what you have to do.on the united states has spent $8
trillion in the middle east. we have lost thousands of brave soldiers and tens of thousands of terribly wounded people. great people. their lives will never be the same. these wars produce only chaos and bloodshed all of the blood and treasure we sacrifice made the middle east, it is less safe. it is less stable. it is less secure. the single greatest mistake, our country made, in its history, was going into the quicksand of the middle east. we spent $8 trillion in lost thousands of lives. by the way, the other side, we can can talk about that, lost millions of lives. what did we do? we will pull them out. weng are pulling people out.
trying to make good deals. bring our soldiers back home. we may need them for something else and they will be ready. >> backing off of twitter. did the president leave about leaving kurds to die. arrested trying to flee the country. funniest best president in years. talk about telling it like it is. saying a lot about what we are thinking and knowing. did not seem to stop any crowds from showing up. lisa harrison. fair game. our president was amazing last night. doesn't joe biden criticizing trump at a much smaller rally, one would think they are both running for president.d facebook available. you can post on our twitter feed stephanie in brooklyn new york. good morning. >> good morning.
>> i am calling because i was so disappointed about that rally last night. such an embarrassment. not even a road model. men, our young ladies. he has just a disgrace. >> what about the rally disappointed you the most? >> there was nothing positive about it. this president has so much hate in him. he is such a mean man. he has no efficacy for anyone else or anything else. he puts his self above anybody else. he is a narcissist. he does not care for us at all. he cares for his families pockets. he is not doing nothing for us
but robbing the country. him and his rich friends along with his friends giuliani. along withn the republican party because they are taking money from international countries. we must put a stop to it. >> we will leave it there. if you would not mind turning down your television just to cut back on the feedback, we appreciate it. hello. >> good morning. i just have a couple words to say about our president. and the speech he made. he is a comedian. he is the tv show house.
it is dangerous because he is the president. people like to hear the fact that he is not politically correct. >> he directly mentioned euro biden. >> he called his son a loser. he did not call directly joe biden anything. trump is unable and insecure and cowardly enough to do with it. the second thing is, trump is a-determia-determi ner christian
hean proclaims he has a christi. he believes in jesus christ. jesus, they tried to kill jesus, but he was too pure and to holy. >> this is the whole thing everyone is trying to get out. saying lies and being so incompetent. all of this stuff. >> let's go to darlene and tennessee. >> i'm glad to see you. i watched it this morning before you came on. he has just a motivational antagonistic person. this must be a campaign to get him reelected. i did not hear anything he was going to do with this country. or climate change.
giuliana had been trite caught trying to flee the country. >> you heard the president speak earlier about issues concerning turkey and syria with a follow-up. >> plenty of news on that front. >> comes to withdrawing troops from northeastern syria. joe biden with a new post on the website medium yesterday. fis is what it read in part. donald trump sold out the syrian democratic sources. he betrayed a key local ally in the fight against terrorism.
he betrayed our groups who sacrifice along them. he betrayed our word as a nation among our allies, around the world. security commitment. green lighting a turkish incursion setting conditions for isis to regrow. formed by vice president joe biden. here are a few more posts throughout the day yesterday. president trump continuing to get pushback fromio members of s own party, in particular particular. marco rubio saying syria has nothing to do with endless war sending thousands of troops.ee turkey in the united states agreed to border security zones. the kurds removed. the u.s. agreed to remove our small contingent groups from the border. turkey invaded. here are two tweets from mario
diaz from florida. republican congressman i strongly support. onch of i the foreign policy, im concerned about the decision to withdraw from syria. the kurds have been instrumental partners in the region. loyal allies to the u.s. for decades. i hope this will not further destabilize the region or embolden enemies such as ironic and isis. >> lloyd smucker of pennsylvania instrumental in our fight against isis and syria. we should not be turning our backs on them. president trump should immediately reverse his decision senator rand paul of kentucky saying if we can save one american soldier from losing their life or limb in another senseless middle eastern war, it is worthwhile. the blood loss of the neoconservatives knows no balance. >> topic of this program today for the remaining two and a half
hours. 8001 for republicans. democrats and independents. boca raton florida next. jenny, hello. >> good morning. i just want to say one thing about the rally last night that i found disturbing. trump cannot be eloquent or articulate. he has to always go to foul language. for example, saying saying that joe biden was kissing a rock obama [bleep]. my 10-year-old son is watching it. he now thinks he can go around saying that. i just do not think that is cool. as a president you need to be held to a higher standard tiered >> that is jenny in florida. vethat is off twitter. highlight some of the same things. >> the opposite of what i taught my children to be. the president doesn't hate.
he hates what he did to this country. has this current president the right to be mad. obama what he does to him in the u.s. hello. >> good morning. i just wanted to say what one woman said about all he did was antagonize. they did not look antagonize to me. they have to start giving trump a chance. and set a fight with him the whole way. i have never in my life seen anyone criticized as bad as this president has been. >> what do you get from watching the rally personally? >> i listen to what is being said.
i don't listen to everything that is said. he is a politician. >> not what i heard last night, no. i did not hear any. >> okay. maryland. we will go to jay in florida. how it was going. it is a rally. not just meant for the whole entire united states. it is meant for those people that are in that auditorium. it is designed for that.
that is why he goes to each state and has a rally in each state. it is nitpicking. what i did here was something that the democrats were pushing for years and years and years in the 60s. get out of vietnam. we will not get anywhere. then all of a sudden, you did not hear a word about it except for let's cut the budget. we do not need all this stuff. i was there in the 70s. seventy-eight and 79. we've been there since then. were not going anywhere. these people will never understand what's going on. these people will always fight against each other. why are we wasting our human treasures for people that don't care. anything about what we do. why are the kurds still in syria? why don't they leave?
everybody wants to push back and forth and claim it is trump's fault. this man does not have enough power in him to control the entire world. i don't know what they are thinking. >> i walked by the television. i saw his face and his demeanor. everything that i am not. i am a christian. he is not. i do not think that he is qualified to be our president. i would like him gone today. >> did you listen to anything that he said. >> yes. i did. i just think that it is all garbage. there are children that are listening. he ise too negative to be a god leader. >> okay. that is marjory in illinois. we will hear next from larry.
larry in indiana. >> you are on. go ahead. >> okay. i am a a republican. i support president trump in every way. telling the truth and tell it the way that it is. president obama and biden, they just jerk the people around. they did not tell them about the healthth care. what it was really going to do to them. in 1972 when the war was going on, kissinger, quietly went to i china in 1972. the headline was nixon acknowledged living as communists. >> and then, biden was overheard on the microphone saying the f
word. and then he was in his room with a russian guy and he was saying, we can do better. >> how does this all relate back to the rally last night? >> i am not sure. i'm just trying to give you a little background.. the rally, energize your rally. this is for that area. to energize to go vote republican. democrats are nothing but, all they want to do is impeach. go from one subject to the other. get one thingot done they go somewhere else. i support. >> okay. this is a viewer that goes by the handle thoughtful processes.
those in attendance, american citizens don't seem to know or care about real policy. they expect no more than an hour of him ripping on meaningful nonsense., it was a great speech by the president. keeps packing in the crowds. taking his message to the people. endless war in the middle east. michigan isig up next. we will be hundred hear from l kevin. >> i was just, i did not actually get to see the rally last night. i've been to one in michigan. i tell you what. he can energize people to no end you have a president here who is fighting the media. fighting the democrats. fighting some republicans. the guy has been under attack his whole presidency. even before that. the president is going to be mad. would you get mad if you were attacked for the last three years? i mean, really. >> tom is next.
hi. >> good morning to you. donald trump needs to be impeached. yes, he does. he has a crook, he is a is a liar, he's a cheat. the whole ball of wax. let's look at things from a common viewpoint. everyone in his administration, since he's been president has either been arrested, fired by him, thrown in prison or being prosecuted as we speak. we have to take into consideration who is a leader. if the people in this administration are guilty, who was guilty? the only time the man buys is when he opens his mouth. >> what did you think about the themes from last nights rally then? >> i think it was crazy. he has all these people believing we will do this, we will do that. we love god. the united states. going all the way back to trump
tower. the contractors when he had it built, he said i don't want it. you need to to pay them. trump towers was purchased before. they were checked into things that donald trump has done. not a leader. his family was rich. when you have money, you you have everything you need the way you want it. >> from florida. republican line. hello. >> yes. i want to remind these people about calling trump a liar and a thief and everything. this guy wants to become president. he don't need it. he has a lot of money. he can be enjoying his money. having a good life. not taking the aggravation on
all of this hate that he is getting from these democratic people. ignorant people. people from the left that have done a lot of harm to this country for many years. hillary clinton. doing a lot of wrongdoing. these other ones that his son was doing and getting a lot of money for that country. with no excuse why he was 'etting so much money. they don't persecute them. they don't do nothing to him. they have not had this guy become, do his job as a president for the year that he
is being elected. >> okay. i will leave you there. if you won it mind again for people calling in, turn down your television set. that helps. keeps the conversation flowing smoothly. on more from the rally, what was going on outside the target center, here is john. >> concentrating a lot on what was happening inside. there was a protest that took place outside the target center yesterday in minneapolis. this is the headline. peaceful chance to fire and an impasse with police. i just want to take you through mid tojo late afternoon and evening. into a series of video tweets. this first from chris sheridan. this is around 3:30 p.m. local time in minnesota showing some of the police, getting into position yesterday. the bicycle cops showing up. fast-forward a couple of hours to 5:19 p.m.
this is aaron blake. filming one confrontation between a group of protesters and trump supporters there outside the target center. that scene d escalated eventually. skip ahead to after the rally last night. this from w cco cbs miami showing a group of protesters outside the target center earning a pile of make america great again hats. take a look at that video. i just want to read one paragraph from the star tribune area. some outside began walking cars of attendees trying to leave. calling the drivers racist and throwing plastic bottles and carpet on trans traffic cones at their vehicles. trump supporters flipped them.
