they are gone. >> we agree on that. lou: stop right here. mark, you get the right word. mark: i feel like vince mcmahon. lou: thank you both have much. good night. kennedy: north korea you are on notice. give up the nukes or face the full wrath of these united states. that's the word from the white house as president trump prepared for his landmark meeting with kim jong-un. the president made it clear he'll succeed where other presidents have fallen short. president trump: this should have been solved by many others.
i am not just saying president obama. i am saying other presidents. this could have been solved in an easier manner and less dangerous manner. but it wants so i will solve it. kennedy: the meeting with the dictator next monday in singapore. mike pompeo made it clear there is only one acceptable outcome for the united states. >> the united states has been clear time and time again, the complete verifiable denuclearization of the korean peninsula is the only outcome we'll find acceptable. the president recognizes north korea has great potential and he looks ford to the day when sanctions on the dprk can be removed, but it won't happen until they completely eliminate their weapons of mass
destruction weapons. kennedy: another trip to the united states could include a round of golf at beautiful mar-a-lago. but analysts say there is still an awful lot that can go wrong. march taken got the scoop on the potential golf outing. obviously world peace is at stake and averting nuclear war. how funny would it be if kim jong-un was such a bad golfer he'll do what i have done in the past which is beat the first tee box with his dwriefer. >> it's not entirely clear the hoops that would have to be jumped to to get kim jong-un to this country might be enough an impediment to free prevent that
from happening. but there will be golf courses around this resort in singapore where the summit is taking place. if they want to hit the links they will be able to. it's not clear if kim is a golfer. kennedy: his father actually hit three holes in one, in one day. >> scored a 38, very impressive. kennedy: i'm sure the press was there to witness it. his father also invented the sandwich. >> very impressive, i didn't know that about him. kennedy: there are a lot of things that will be learned at this summit. a lot can go wrong. what has to go right? >> if even a modest deal is struck between north korea and the united states, the president will emerge handling it as a major victory. when we heard the president
speak today about it. it wasn't entirely accurate he's doing what no other administration has been able to do. north korea's sovereignty and place among the nations of the world, that would have been a much easier feat for an earlier administration. if you north korea is such and oppressive dictatorial regime, that would and big concession. fit gets them to the go nuclearize maybe it's worth it. but i think the president is overselling it a little bit. kennedy: i know he wants this to work out. everyone wants it to work out. but you are absolutely right. this is still a place where millions of people are slaughtered at the hand of communist tyrants.
and we can't lose sight of that. but that can't be the overriding force going into these negotiations. there has to be some bit of optimism that there is a glimmer of hope within his dark heart. and by appealing to his ego, perhaps you can bring him into diplomatic light. >> this will be the challenge for the president. he's famously a self-proclaimed master deal maker and far be it from me to question his deal-making skills. but he honed the world of new york city real estate and brought the zero sum attitude into his governing style. you see it often in trade negotiations. this idea you try to screw ther guy before he can screw. if they are winning in a trade deal it means we are losing. i don't think that's the type of approach that will produce a
productive outcome. kennedy: i think it' the zero sum approach that brought us here. it will be interesting to see if the approach changes once they get into a room. you know the president operates on many different levels. one of them being unpredictability. but in equal measure he's also very charming. and he uses those tools adeptly. we don't know what the end game is. that's why this thing is so intriguing and it's exciting. the end game could be so incredibly unthinkably positive. it's dangerous to put that cart before this horse. but it's a very intriguing idea. will you come back to new york and hang out sometime and tell us about your travails in the white house? >> any time. >> what about the military and foreign policy angles?
the alternative to a deal is potential nuclear war. bryan suits is back. welcome back, suits. let's discuss sort of the military aspect. it's not just about denuclearization. and we know that. what else has to happen militarily. >> the north koreans have to be made to feel like we mean it when we say we are not going to try to change your regime. they know deep down probably better than we do that they are a very large ground army, 400,000 plus men in uniform. but they are a fourth rate military. two weeks of what we did in syria in 60 seconds and that regime would go back to the 9th century. they have been bluffing for 60 years, especially with the
elimination of the support of the soviet union. militarily they have to believe that we mean it when we say we don't want to change the regime, but we are not leaving south korea. they are our ally. we are staying there. and they de facto admitted to that. they admitted all right, you can be friends with them and we won't object every time you do an exercise. we have to sell that to them, if you sign this we really won't try to change your regime. ultimately that's why they made the effort and spent the money to get the nukes. kennedy: let's talk about shinzo abe. they take a much tougher stance than some of our allies in the region. what is shinzo abe saying to the president? >> what the japanese are saying is please tell us that you
leaving korea is not on the table. please tell us that you leaving the air base and naval base in japan, please tell us you are not going to leave touts western pacific. there is a concern for the japanese the north koreans will say we'll keep it to 20 nukes if you leave okinawa in japan and we'll sign a peace treaty. the japanese are saying that's not on the table because you are our primary defense partner. australia, taiwan, japan, we all count on the americans being here. the way trump has been, pay your bill or we won't defend you. kennedy: that's a fair request regardless of how much people may despise this president. that's a fair thing to ask. >> tying it to some sort of or
maybe we won't be there for you. that's what he has been doing, nato and the japanese are upset about. don't make it sound to the north koreans that you are about to pull the rug out and go home. kennedy: wouldn't do that. bryan suits, i hope you had a lovely point before the show it's always good to see you. >> yes, i did. kennedy: what do americans think of the upcoming summit with kim jong-un. 66% think the president should meet with the north korean leader while 24% think he shouldn't. on 28% think north korea will ever give up their nuclear weapons. can the president achieve his goal of peace on the korean
peninsula or should we bring dennis rodman out of the bullpen? let's go to my party and. bre peyton, lawrence jones and "reason" magazine editor at large matt welch. the polls reflect the complexity of the situation. i think people are getting smarter. i think they talk about politic a lot more than they used to, and part of it is they are not exactly sure what the president is going to do. it's a rational response. go meet him. we don't know what's going to happen. we don't have a lot of faith something will happen. the whole promise of trump is he's a needle scratch across the record in the governance. he's going to shake it up as he
eluded to in the qulip you played. but things that are hard to solve are hard to solve. it's a good thing to have these conversations, and we want to share that kind of optimism. it's preferable to where we were during the republican presidential primary in 2016. we are in a much better place now. but i think americans are right to be rationally suspicion. can anything happen? it's a hard problem to solve. kennedy: we want denuclearization. south korea definitely wants it. but how do we get there from where we are at right now? >> it will be a process. i would give the president some credit because he has been very transparent through this process. he said unlike the past administration that didn't want congress to play a part in the iran deal. he talked about the senate
approving this being a treaty. but he says he doesn't expect a deal to be there. i know a lot of people said this president is rushing it. but he took a step back and said we have got to get to know each other. kennedy: that's a better way to change your story. raising expectations it means no matter what happens, you will fall short of them. but if you are realistic and honest with people invested in this, that makes you more trustworthy. bre, to lawrence's point, the president almost has a better foreign policy team than domestic team. it seems like a lot of the distractions and leaks come from the domestic side. though i might disagree fundamentally with mike pompeo or john bolton, it does seem like they are the calmer part of his administration. >> i would agree with that.
the foreign policy team is dealing with reality. the domestic side of things you watch and heart news coming out of the white house, you are scratching your head wondering how that could be true. i think the foreign policy team seize we are a lot bigger, stronger and tougher than north korea. and that's the position we'll project and the posture we'll have when we enter into these negotiations. a lot of the american people are refreshed by that attitude. >> i think when it comes to the foreign policy side. that's a battle of the ideas. the battle of john bolton versus mike pompeo. what they feel. tariffs have been involved in this and sanctions. when it comes to the actual domestic stuff it's a battle of
people trying to fight each other basketball. they are not debating each other. i don't like you. a lot of the people complaining about leaking, the people on tv are some of the leaks as well. it's a lot of mess when it comes to domestic. >> it's interesting to know john bolton seems to be sidelined in this process. this whole career has been denuclearization of the korean peninsula. he hasn't been in the last two months a key player in this. kennedy: he's going. >> even when you look at the president, he talked about how they are afraid of john bolton. i think john bolton has become the trump bad cop. kennedy: i think you are right. i think the president appreciates that john bolton
really gets under their skin. he says things the president doesn't have to. john bolton, like hip or not, he has an incredible command of the facts. he just has a very specific way -- >> i don't think trump would be there having this meeting if it weren't for pompeo and bolton. kennedy: first up, president trump travels to canada to meet with leaders of our closest allied nations, and they hate his trade policies. they are also mad. i'm very proud of the fact that i served. i was a c130 mechanic in the corps, so i'm not happy unless my hands are dirty. between running a business and four kids, we're busy. auto insurance, homeowner's insurance, life insurance policies. knowing that usaa will always have my back...

kennedy: welcome back. president trump has been pushing his america first agenda since before he was in office. and tomorrow he'll take that interesting nationalist approach to the g-7 summit. and of course he's ruffled a few feathers when he slapped steel and aluminum tariffs on our allies. he'll see all of them except
mexico in quebec. the president says his moves are necessary for national security reasons. but the trump administration also just revised a deal with the massive and controversial chinese telecommunications firm zte which the administration had put penalties on for violating sanctions. now his critics are asking which one is an actual threat to american security. they have been spying on us for years. they are look at you right now, those red perverts. joining me, tim carney. earlier i was talking about the president's many sides. he's a mercurial yet brilliant man according to newt gingrich, and he can go into the room with both barrels blazing.
and say i don't care what you say, you have been messing with us for years. the president has been tweeting about dairy tariffs canada has been imposing killing our agriculture. >> he loves to introduce instability and uncertainty. the fact that you are asking this question means he's winning. you saw what he did with kim jong-un. he canceled the meeting. he did this with syria. the first time he hit them with missile strikes. you had half the administration saying assad must go. the uncertainty is part of the art of the deal and make those people on their heels. there is. theater going on on both sides. whether it's angela merkel or trudeau, they benefit from being
the #resistance. idon'tseethisasrumgoinginwanting to. i see him pretending he's fighting the european types. kennedy: whoever was nicest to him he struck a unilateral deal which whichever country -- >> that's the way trump functions. when you ask him, what do you think of this person? it wouldn't have anything to do with how they are as a businessman or politician. it was how nice they were to him. this is where macron from france. he's the smartest. he's the most of willing to actually -- i think he understands trump the most of. i think somehow trump comes out of this praising france and
denigrating canada and germany who don't want to deal with us. kennedy: we have a good relationship with great britain. i would like us to maintain that because i am obsessed with the show "the crown." >> obama picking a fight with great britain saying they would move to the back of the line. there was a perfect opportunity for trump to step in there. half us are rooting for what we did to you. you shouldn't be ruled by people across the water. there should be a bilateral trade deal with them. trump going in with guns blazing into this g-7 summit. i'm hoping it's not him trying to pick fights and raise tariffs.
kennedy: germany thinks they are so fancy because they have a better economy than greece. but they still need to be on the bus. we all do. we all benefit from free trade, and everyone has to understand that. and if this is a moment when we talk about what free trade is, we have to get off that fetish at some point and talk about real free trade and economic growth. this is positive sum territory. last word. >> if sticking it to germany does not enrich americans. kennedy: but it would feel good, point? tim carney, thank you so much. coming up, president trump's attorney rudy giuliani has been all over television defending his clients. but after a series of ongoing gaffes, is he helping the cause? i have the tale of the tape and
colorado republican cory gardner and massachusetts democrat elizabeth warren. they introduced a bill that would allow states to legalize marijuana without federal interference. >> right now in colorado and soon in massachusetts, someone who buys marijuana, someone who sells marijuana is come lying about state law, but they are in violation of federal law and that puts them at risk. >> this is not a legalization bill. it just says if a state decides to legalize, then that would be aloud under federal law. kennedy: absolutely right, cory gardner, the act doesn't legalize pot federally. the president only supports it
because cory gardner promised to not hold up his department of justice nominations. does this mean he sees eye to eye with our a.g., jeff sessions? the party panel is back. bre, i will start with you. there are a lot of states look at this revenue base, and they are saying i would love to fund my school. i would love to have free money because my pension obligations have almost bankrupted my state. >> i agree this is a step in the right direction. i lived in d.c. it's legal there. but federally it is illegal. it strikes me as funny. the literal address for the federal government is in the same city. can we talk about the way this is regulated? step in the right direction.
and i kind of like that he's disagreeing sessions on this issue base think sessions is terrible. kennedy: he's very anti-freedom on this and other things. is this the death knell for jeff sessions? is he officially done? alice johnson is free. we'll talk about her later in the show. >> i said this last week on your program. if the president wants to get back on jeff sessions. get him to reform criminal justice. as it relates to weed, tell him to back off. and this is just simple. the president is on his opioid high. there are studies that show people that take marijuana get off opioid. kennedy: states where recreational marijuana is legal, they have fewer opioid
overdoses. >> i think this is a great move. kennedy: it's interesting because there are some areas of bipartisanship you don't want to see come to fruition like infrastructure it's incredibly expensive. we can't afford it. but republicans and democrats, for some reason they both love it. the criminal justice reform and states rights and cannabis legality, those are good areas. >> it's happening from the bottom up. we only have state legal marijuana because of the ballot process. it's wildly popular in america. americans believe the federal government shouldn't be involved in state government experiments in legalizing marijuana. so you can tell republicans, this is a federalism issue. you used to care about this. you can tell jeff sessions the same thing the u.s. attorneys
told him. you don't have enough comes. there have never been enough federal cops to enforce the federal prohibition of marijuana. >> it's wasting resources. we have actual criminals. kennedy: the cops know it. there are awful violent people throughout that wish to do others harm. >> and you see them flipping on the state and local level, comes on this exact issue for this exact reason. this will be a way for donald trump to have bipartisan applause. and then people can start talking about minimum sentencing reform. but get this done. it's a huge deal. kennedy: it's a great step in the right direction. thank you all for being here.

generation. but the president has to be findful, self-aware and laser focused to pull it off. unfortunately rudy giuliani is off his rocker. the once great new york city mayor seems to have lost the memo or lost his mind. >> they insulted the vice president and the national security advisor, and they said they were going to go to nuclear war against us. we said we won't have a summit under those circumstances. and kim jong-un got back on his hand and knees and begged for it, and that's the position we want to put him in. kennedy: it's the kind of thing that makes it difficult.
>> i respect human beings, i have to respect criminals. but i don't respect a porn star as i respect a woman who has substance and has respect for herself and as a person and isn't going to sell her body for exploitation. kennedy: giuliani disrespecting her. that's not a defense it complicates a messy legal matter. rudy's heart is in the right place but his foot is lodged in his mouth and his head up his rear. if he wants to help the mueller case and the stormy daniels days and north korea, he needs to button up his lips. and that's the memo.
rudy has become the face of the president's defense team. he's also credited with the more aggressive approach to the mueller investigation. and a lot of the president's supporters like that. but with all the side shows he's creating has he become a liability? you know i have invited the party panel back into my welcoming bosom. bre peyton, lawrence jones and matt welch. let's talk about this a little bit more. a lot of the president's supporters agree with giuliani's intention and they see the president's past legal team as being too soft and too flexible, bending over backwards and giving too much information to a special counsel which may have dubious aims. but then what happens when he opens up his mouth to funneling money through a law firm and the president paying it back and all sorts of unnecessary
revelations. >> the problem with giuliani is he's a politician. politicians speak a lot. he could make a point and just shut up. and i think that complicates the matter. jay sekulow is an attorney. he dabbles in politics. but he's really a legal mind. i understand they want him to be an attack dog. but i think he's hurting. and i think jay sekulow did a better job. kennedy: there is something to be said for a politician who understands the law. he fills in a lot of the gaps the president needs. i think giuliani would be more effective if he were speaking his mind and talking to the president and preparing him for what lies ahead on this legal road, but maybe in the background a little bit. >> i think this decision to go
after stormy daniels in a very personal way is totally unnecessary. it's fine to say her facts don't add up. here are some factual holes in the claims she is making. that's a different argument than saying let's not listen to her at all because i don't like the profession she does. he got into trouble by saying the first lady doesn't believe stormy daniels. her spokesperson says rudy giuliani hasn't talked to the first lady about that. ultimately, is it going to be impeached or not. that's a public, popular opinion. also the negotiations, does he testify to mueller and under what conditions. that's a largely public, out there way of negotiations. >> it's a way of putting pressure on the situation
appropriately that lets mueller snow we are taking a higher stance here. >> the majority of that is also behind the scenes. he's a former prosecutor. a former u.s. attorney. he knows how mueller thinks. he could be preparing the president for mueller. if there is going to be a cross-examination. what to look for. they aren't using his skills very well. he's misusing his skills. he's being employed for a specific purpose. but when you can't lock it up and you have no idea what you are saying and your word leave your mouth, he has to take a background role. >> donald trump is not a disciplined client. and he's attracted to people who are on television defending him. kennedy: i will be watching you,
people. we have seen firsthand what can go wrong when a president makes a bad agreement with a rogue nation. president obama's rogue iran deal is coming back to haunt all of us. an investigation showed that that president obama allowed iranians to convert mayor currency into dollars. it is important to note it was not illegal. but it did go far beyond the terms late out in the iran nuclear agreement, at least part of the agreement we saw. u.s. banks didn't even want to get involved. was president trump right to call for an investigation?
>> there is a lot of questions about the entire iran deal where we are getting conflicting information now than what the obama admin told us. so i definitely think we need to know, what happened, what did you promise these people. what were the terms that were made. what did you tell the american public and how is that different from what actually happened. kennedy: how is that not weird circumventing the system and saying go ahead and use our american banks, you can convert $5.7 billion. >> and publicly saying we are not giving the iranians access to the american system. they lied to americans about how this thing got done. it doesn't mean they had constant access. but it was a one-time deal. it should be a lesson to donald trump. if you want to sign a deal you will do a lot of bad things if
it's just about making a deal at any cost. i think the obama administration clearly negotiated with that in mind. they were so focused on it they would do anything including b.s.ing america. >> i will give the president credit he said he wants this to be a treaty. and obama didn't go through congress. there weren't the extra set of eyes to hold him accountable. kennedy: if you want it to be different you have to allow congress to have a crack at it.

it's unclear why. judging by the standing the tigers batters are already blind. it was a punk move by sox fans. boston is where philly fans go to feel classy. the shenanigans didn't end there. check out what they did to the tigers' hotel room afterwards. i'll show, detroit sucks. a little too much lite beer. topic number five. they say a broken clock is right twice a day. which is two times more than some of you. yeah. time for viewer mail. bring it. must be hard sharing the screen with the stock ticker when it is so much funnier than you.
