tv   Tucker Carlson Tonight  FOX News  May 4, 2017 5:00pm-6:01pm PDT

5:00 pm
much. john roberts of the uss intrepid. there is a scene of the dinnerware that president is headed into that room moments away. thank you for being with us tonight and sharing "the story." we'll be back with more tomorrow night. tucker carlson is coming up nex next. >> tucker: this is a fox news alert. president trump is expected to speak at any moment now. of course, we'll bring it to you as soon as that starts. good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." the president is about to deliver a speech at the intrepid sea air and space museum in new york city. during his first visit to new york since becoming the president. just moments ago, the president met with the australian prime minister, malcom turnbull. we have tape of that which we are going to go to in just a minute. first, we want to go to charles krauthammer, who i believe a standing by in washington tonight. charles, there is other news, thanks a lot for joining us. there is other news today. that is the american health care
5:01 pm
act, has passed the house of representatives. hoaxster's joining us, i want to say we will go to the event wite president. how significant is that that this has passed? >> for political reasons for the president, and for speaker wrong and, this is a very important moment. simply on the negative side. had it not, that would have been a striking out. the republicans have railed against the affordable care act, obamacare, for seven years. they promised, they voted over 60 times to repeal when they knew that the repeal would be ineffective because obama was in office. now, they have a republican in office, they are not able to pass a bill. simply, the fact that passing the ball was extremely important because of the downside. the problem is, what is in the bill. the problem is that we have a very rickety health care system as a result of obamacare. it is very hard to predict what the effects are going to be.
5:02 pm
by the one thing we know is that this is like the economy. you come in office, you on the economy whether it is your work or not, whether anything as a result of what you do. you come into office, you own the health care system. particularly when you pass something like this. if you have an appointment with your doctor that gets canceled, they will blame donald trump and paul ryan, no matter whether it has direct effect or not. that is where they are now. they are hostage to the future of american health care. >> tucker: what they have been anyway? you heard some republican strategists in washington saying, do nothing, allow obamacare to collapse, stand back warm your hands on the embers and felt something in its place. was that possible? >> no, it's not possible. the moment the president is sworn in, he owns the health care system. it is not fair, it is not logical. but it doesn't matter. people attribute whatever is happening to the administration, particularly when you control the house and the senate, and
5:03 pm
particularly when you campaigned for years and garner the political benefits of going against obamacare, and promising a replacement. they had no choice. they are now hostage to the results of a bill, whose outcome on the ground is extremely hard to predict. >> tucker: its legislative outcome, as well. the compound question, this will get through the senate, and are we sure it is a good bill? >> something i think we'll get through the senate. but it may not look very much like the house bill. the house bill is essentially dead on arrival. to be revived when something else comes out of the senate and goes to the house senate conference committee, where they will try to work out a compromise. the senate is on its own now. it will have to find a compromise that is less radical than the house bill because of
5:04 pm
the political math of the senate. you have only two votes to spare. you have a lot of moderates who are not very happy, republican moderates, then, you have the radical fundamentalists, like rand paul, who want to treat health care like another commodity in a country that is not anywhere near that anymore. >> tucker: less than it ever has been. the debate in the last couple of days has been over the pre-existing conditions clause in obamacare. reviled by libertarians, but popular with a lot of the public. is that sacrosanct at this point? cannot go anywhere, do you think? >> absolutely sacrosanct. i think what republicans are beginning to understand is how the fundamental view of health care among the american people has changed. obamacare is a disaster on the ground. what is done to our system, what is done economically, it is in a death spiral, and politically, it ruined the democrats.
5:05 pm
however, there is an iron he had a hit hidden victory over these last several years, people's expectations have changed. you watched the debate over the last three months. what are the grounds? they are liberal grounds. how many people will lose their coverage? how can you lead people out of my cold? with jimmy kimmel thing. it is showing that the people is at a point where i think it believes in universal coverage. once you are there, the ground is shifted. republicans and conservatives are going to have a hard time arguing for a consumer-based market oriented health care system. we are in a different world. >> tucker: were health savings accounts may not be popular to the majority. i saw a piece this week entitled the conservative case for single-payer. i am not sure most conservatives are quite there yet. but you think that is where it is going? >> i think that is where we are going. whether it will end up single payer, the canadian system or not, i am not sure. i will get into guarantee you this, within a few years, theret
5:06 pm
be an argument about whether government has an obligation to ensure that everybody gets health coverage. that is with the democrats wanted all along. they weren't quite ready to pull the trigger in 2010. so, they ended up with this hybrid system, this rickety system, it is not self-sustaining. the idea, i think, has now sunk in. >> tucker: it's also bewildering. things are changing really fast. we are glad you are here. charles krauthammer, thank you. >> thank you. >> just a short time ago, ahead of the dinner you are watching on the screen, donald trump met with the australian prime minister malcom turnbull. let's take a look at that meeting, which we have right here. >> we get along great. always have. >> what is the relationship with australia? >> i love australia. we have a fantastic relationship. i love australia. always have. the great governor is here today, a friend of ours. we have a lot of friends here
5:07 pm
tonight. >> a lot of friends. do you think you're going to put the refugee deal behind you? >> that has been worked out for a long time. >> we had a good telephone call. we had a great call. you guys exaggerated that call. a big exaggeration. we had a great call. we had a great call, right? we had a very, very good call. that was a little bit of fake news. >> exactly right. >> one can be expected to be enough to australia, mr. trump? >> that will happen. one of the great, great places. one of the most beautiful places on earth. i have so many friends there. i will be there. absolutely, we will be there. >> what is the relationship to celebrating the soft coral sea? >> i will be speaking about the battle of the coral sea tonight. that was some battle. a very important battle for both of us. we did it together. >> we did.
5:08 pm
it saved australia. it was a turning point in the war. i was just enough light to some of the veterans, the australian and american veterans, they were teenagers when they turned the war, the tide of war, between australia and america. >> we have been allies for 99 years. can you imagine not? 99 years. never a bad time. a great, great thing. >> mr. president, how hard will it be to get the health care bill through the senate? >> i think we will get it through. the republicans are very united. you have seen that today. the republicans came together, all of a sudden, two days ago, it was like magic. they just came together. they are very, very united. every group, from the freedom caucus, to every single group. a lot of groups. a lot of great people. they are very, very united. you saw that today. you'll see it again.
5:09 pm
the senate is looking forward to getting it. mitch mcconnell knows how to do things. i think we are going to have some really great health care. for a long time. >> president trump, what you say to some of the congress people concerned about how it will change in the senate? >> president trump: that could change a little bit. it could get a little bit better. it's a very good bell. the premiums will come down, very substantially. the deductibles will come down. it will be fantastic health care, right now, obamacare is failing. we have a failing health care. i shouldn't say this to the great gentlemen, my friend from australia, because they have better health care than we do. we are going to have great health care, very soon. obamacare is failing. the insurance companies are leaving. aetna just announced they are from obamacare. some states, you look at a lot of states, a lot of different states, tennessee, kentucky is now in trouble. iowa is in trouble. the insurance companies are all leaving. obamacare is dead. so, when you compare something
5:10 pm
to obamacare, obamacare is no longer living. and we have something that is going to be i think one of the best anywhere in the world. we look forward to it. >> mr. president, can i ask about your tweet on foreign policy? it is unconventional for a president. is it an asset or liability to foreign policy? >> president trump: social media is the way to go. i have over 100 million people watching. social media to me is a way to go. this way, somebody is not treating you properly, or if you do have indeed fake media, not all of it is fake, some of it is fantastic, actually. you can just sort of circumvent. i find, i don't know if you find out, i find a social media is the way to go. between the different forms. there are many different forms. but it's a fast way of getting the word out. i really think it helped today with health care. i think it's a great way to communicate and it's a modern way to communicate. thank you very much! >> thank you.
5:11 pm
>> thank you. >> thank you. >> tucker: earlier today, we will bring you president trump's speech live just as soon as it starts. it should be coming up pretty soon. also, president trump is going after former obama official susan rice for refusing to testify to congress about what she knows about the unmasking of trump transition officials. the question is, is she hiding anything? that's next. plus, another video of an airline kicking off its own paying customers. this time, it's a family with young children. >> they can remove you.

♪ >> tucker: we are awaiting your speech tonight by president trump at the intrepid museum in new york. we are going their life and soon he begins to speak. right now, remember susan rice? she is back in the news again. maybe not for the last time. this morning, president trump tweeted this, "susan rice, the former national security advisor to president obama, is refusing to testify before a senate subcommittee next week on... ...allegations of unmasking trump transition officials. not good!" susan rice says that she is
5:16 pm
declining to testify because the invitation wasn't backed by the subcommittee's top democratic , sheldon whitehouse. for reasons of separations of power. the question is, as she hiding anything? a democratic is touted joins us tonight to explain. we have spent the last five months hearing from democrats, we need to know more, get it all out in the open, let's have an investigation, here is an opportunity for susan rice to come and pray to explain herself, and she is declining. it is hard to see why. >> i would explain this this way. let's look at the larger context. this is an investigation into the interference by russia and in 2016 election. that is what the subcommittee hearing is about. that she has been advised to buy senator graham. and senator wright has disagreed with. already, as if you look at this panel coming together, they have sally yates, the former acting attorney general of the united states, and james clapper, the former
5:17 pm
director of national intelligence already testifying. those were agreed to by both the chair in the ranking members, senator whitehouse, the ranking member. she was invited just at the last moment to come. it was only an invitation that was extended by senator graham. the chairman. she is declining based on her reasons i stated in the letter, from her lawyer. i can understand. let's start with the facts. >> tucker: she didn't get invited by enough people? so she's not coming? i'm totally confused. she is not going to be question just by republicans. she won't be question by just republicans, but the way that this investigation is being constructed by the chair and by the ranking member, a bipartisan team putting this thing together, is that they have two witnesses who are coming, who have first-hand experience with what happened in the 2016 election, as to russian interference.
5:18 pm
when senator whitehouse looks at susan rice as a witness, he sees her being brought on as a diversionary tactic. it's like a shell game at a carnival. instead of focusing on facts that the two witnesses with first-hand experience, she was a row behind, and can contribute the way that the two witnesses -- >> tucker: i'm sorry. i am trying to stay calm. you never want to get upset about a congressional or senate committee hearing. >> i can't believe we are having this discussion, by the way. >> tucker: i can't, either. for months, i've sat in his chair while democrats get all huffy about how we need more information. susan rice was at the very center of this question by her own description in the media. she said, i went to the intel agencies, ask for this information, ask for a greater degree of specificity, the names included in this intel, about russia's interference into the election. she is a central figure here by her own description. so, why in the world would she not come before republicans and
5:19 pm
democrats in the senate and answer simple questions? >> i think he just said it yourself. her job at the top to the intelligence agencies, the intelligence communities, to gather information, to evaluate it, , and figure out what to do with it vis-a-vis the president. she was not there creating the intelligence reports. the head of the dni is that person who all of that rolled up to you. so, i would not say that she was an integral figure or central figure. i am not sure she would say that, either. >> tucker: are you being serious? best what she just said. part of what baffles me, when she is an opportunity to go on a deeply synthetic television show, all of which are hosted by people who voted for her bos boss, and gets softball questions again and again, she has no problem talking about all of this. she just went on a rival cable channel and said, yeah, i asked for the identities of the people in the intel, which were redacted. i ask for them. that bears directly on, among other things, the general flynn question. how did his identity wind up in
5:20 pm
the press illegally? et cetera, et cetera. >> that is the diversion we are talking about here. this >> tucker: it was a crime that was committed. >> it was not a crime. it was within her duties as national security advisor? >> tucker: i am sorry. you misunderstood me. i'm not saying she committed a crime. i am stating that somebody did. someone in the federal government committed a crime when they leaked the name of the private citizen who had been spied on by his own government. in this case, general flynn. that is a crime, a felony, to do that, as you know. we know that happen. i'm not saying she did it but she was privy to the information that was then leaked to the press. by said the diversion? it is the whole center of this thing. >> it is not the center of this thing. the title is the russian interference in the 2016 election. what you are talking about is something that she did as part of her job and asking a follow-up question, wanting to know more information.
5:21 pm
the intel that they possibly colluded with russian officials with a trunk campaign to potentially swing this election. >> tucker: the intel that we are talking about derived from an investigation into russian interference. that is the story. it doesn't prove the partisan point that sheldon whitehouse wants to make. but for my part, i actually am agnostic on this. i don't know what happened, i just want to know more. i know it is always wrong when american citizens are spied upon without their knowledge by the government and then destroyed by the leak of the intel that results. that is just wrong. i would think as a democrat, a civil libertarian, you would agree. buys a distraction to get to the bottom of? i don't understand it at all. >> the investigation of they are undertaking at that subcommittee -- by the way, this is not unique to this particular subcommittee. we have been brought back bogged down in a certain mother partis, slowness about the investigations, writ large, partly because we are not focusing on the central issues. for instance, why do we not have trump campaign officials been called upon to testify about what they knew, who they were
5:22 pm
talking to from the russian government during the course of the election? >> tucker: i think they have been. >> i think there have been reports that there have not been certain people talked to in the senate intelligence committee. >> tucker: any when asked by the committee ought to come and testify before it. you are not making an argument against having susan rice come, are you? why is it bad to have more information from a player in this drama? you can tell me susan rice isn't one of those plugged in people in washington under the last administration when all of this occurred. why wouldn't you talk to her? that will be crazy. >> because you already have two witnesses that have the answers. i don't believe she will have the answers. >> tucker: ask her questions. she's not afraid to talk. she's on tv all the time, making up stories about benghazi, or talking about pulling the reductions off names. i just don't get it. why not more? >> because i don't think those are the questions that are going to come her way. i think it's been clear that it has been about unmasking the way that is issue. [laughs] i get it. i'm beginning to think this is more partisan than you guys are
5:23 pm
presenting it. >> speaking for myself, i don't think that this issue, declining an invitation as a partisan act. it is something that i understand why she is doing it for their rare reasons i just discussed. >> tucker: all right. thank you for joining us. >> thanks. >> tucker: a judge in boston deliberately gave bail to in a legal immigrant uber driver accused of rape. plus, there is another case of an airline booting passengers who paid for their tickets off the plane for virtually no reason and then threatening them. we'll show you the video up ahead. ♪ it's time to shake things up. with the capital one venture card, you get double miles on everything you buy, not just airline purchases. seriously, think of all the things you buy. great...is this why you asked me to coffee?

well yeah... but also to catch-up. what's in your wallet? as after a dvt blood clot,ital i sure had a lot to think about. what about the people i care about? ...including this little girl. and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i asked my doctor. and he recommended eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. yes, eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop.

seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. you may sometimes suffer from a dry mouth. that's why there's biotene. and biotene also comes in a handy spray. so you can moisturize your mouth anytime, anywhere. biotene, for people who suffer from dry mouth symptoms. ♪ ♪

>> tucker: we are awaiting a speech by president trump. he is expected to mount the podium and jimenez come aboard the u.s.s. intrepid. we'll go there, of course, as soon as he begins speaking. right now, a previously deported illegal immigrant accused of rape is on the run after a judge in boston ignored federal request to keep him detained. our fox station in boston reported on the story. here is part of it. >> a dangerous drive home for a local woman after investigators say she was assaulted by her uber driver, who used a fake name to register with the rideshare company. 34-year-old pled not guilty to . the prosecutor say the young woman was picked up using the app in boston last september and driven to a location she didn't request. he allegedly rape her and then
5:28 pm
dropped her off at boston college where she reported the incident to campus police. >> tucker: but it didn't end there. newton district court judge mary beth heffernan refused a request to set high bail. she released him after requiring just 2500 bucks. now, i.c.e. agents are hunting for him. they say he disappeared. one of the most famous men in new england, also, the author of the book "kennedy babylon." he joins us tonight. thanks a lot for coming on. this story almost sounds like something that he would make up. it sounds like a parody. how did this happen? is it it seems? >> i think this is a pattern that is repeating itself all over the country. tucker, in this case, the guy is an illegal alien, once deported, a dominican, reportedly a gang banger in the city of boston. he is operating under an alias, as you just heard. they bring him in, and the
5:29 pm
prosecutor, the assistant district attorney, from a very liberal county, works for a very liberal democrat district attorney, comes in there and says, we want $100,000 bail on this guy because he is a flight risk. and i.c.e. has asked us to make sure that he is held because they will put a did hanger on him to make sure he can't escape. we want a gps. the judge, a political appointee of former governor patrick, a very liberal democratic politician, doesn't even listen to the entire argument by the employee of the liberal democratic district attorney, and saying, a $2500 bond, and say, can you make the bond of the courthouse we doesn't have to go back to jail? she didn't want to inconvenience him in the least. so, he makes the bond and that was nine days ago and nobody has seen him since. it is so remarkable, -- >> tucker: it's this tension. when it really comes down to, with the left is pushed, in this case, liberal judge, to balance the rights of women, which they
5:30 pm
say they stand for with the so called rights of illegal aliens, the latter wins. 2500 bucks for bail on the rape charge? have you heard of that before? >> it is happening around the country, tucker. there was a case in new york city last week. a dominican woman was charged with, pleaded guilty, to stealing $35,000 worth of victoria's secret products. the judge tried to block photographers from taking her picture out in the hall of the courthouse. she said, you're just going to get her deport her. you had a case in portland, oregon, in january where a mexican illegal alien was in court for a hearing for a drunk driving case, the i.c.e. agents were in the hall waiting for him to come out so they could grab him and put a detainer on him and threw him out of the country. somebody let him out of the back door of the courtroom. we had another case in springfield, western massachusetts last year, a dominican bodega owner who
5:31 pm
pleaded guilty to stealing $35,000 worth of food stamps, welfare fraud. he came into the court and the judge said at an open courtroom, if you were an american, we would be sentencing to you to some serious jail time but we don't want to get you departed. so, we won't give you any jail time. the guy got probation. stealing $35,000. the woman in manhattan, she didn't do any jail time, she didn't do restitution, she didn't do any community service. it's like there is a double standard here. in many cases, illegal aliens or noncitizens are treated better than americans. >> tucker: my jaw is open. we have already moved past the point where the left is arguing that we shouldn't enforce immigration cover to a point where they are showing favoritism to people who are breaking the law, because they are breaking the law. where does this go from here? >> i don't know where it goes. i just chronicle it all the time. tucker, we had a case, another win in massachusetts here, and illegal alien from ecuador was
5:32 pm
drunk, and he ran over an american motorcyclist in the town of milford in central massachusetts. they hired a court psychologist, week of the taxpayers hired him, and he wrote a report and he said, this guy should not be hed accountable, and illegal alien on welfare, drunk driving, should not be held accountable for his drunk driving because he is in "mongoloid dissent," that is what he said, he is an indian and other words, he lacked the enzyme to televise alcohol so he wasn't responsible for killing an american citizen while he was in the country driving drunk. this is going on every day. >> tucker: [laughs] this is why i always find it hard to listen to your radio show because i'm mesmerized by it. thanks for coming on tonight. you blew my mind. >> thank you, tucker. >> tucker: it seems like every two days we see a new video of a callous or violent incident on an airplane committed by the airline, it seems that way.
5:33 pm
just ahead, our panel will discuss where the airlines have gone bad or maybe they are just the latest victims of the public witch hunt. plus, one of our favorite people anywhere cover the martha maccallum, will join us in the friend zone. miss that at your peril. president trump expected to speak any moment now, he is on the uss intrepid here in new york city. we'll bring you that speech live as soon as it happens. ♪ it delivers a gentle mist to help block six key inflammatory substances. most allergy pills only block one. new flonase sensimist.

5:39 pm
is like they'd come a long trailer porta-potty's and 100-degree heat and a parking philadelphia. one time -- >> tucker: i know it well [laughs] >> two and half hours sleep. i put together three folding chairs in a closet and someone gave me this really bad, kind of them, this bad fleece blanket in the back of their car or something, and a slab of cold come out cold, for two hours. i woke up and i said i am a new woman. i feel so much better. >> tucker: but you caught anthrax from a blanket. >> [laughs] not as far as i know. >> tucker: [laughs] this is like predictable. >> it's fun, though. we love what we do. you are so lucky in life if you get to do something that you really love. i am really enjoying doing "the story" at night. and i like leading into you. >> tucker: one of the town house like? >> townhouse are fascinating for the last one we did with a factory into canton, ohio. we like to go out in america talk to people and say, who did you vote for, and they say, i voted for donald trump.
5:40 pm

jordanian or emirates or qatar, then every single u.s. airline. this should embarrass americans, they should be ashamed of themselves. what happened to all they don't tell on me t-shirts i keep seeing it all the airports? you get on the plane and they tried all over you. >> mark, come on. >> tucker: you say delta is better than emirates? [laughter] >> emirates is actually a lovely airline. we got a war in the skies. each of these instances, there is always a back story. if you look at that family on the delta flight, that was leaving hawaii, the back story is, they didn't have the rights to that seat because the name on the ticket didn't match the child's name. now, if you look at the entire video, which i have watched twice, you see that there was a mistake made by the gate agent but it was human error. you see a lot of apologizing, trying to work with a guy. he just didn't want to get off the plane. he was actually wrong on the situation. an airline ticket, and a passenger name, has to match.
5:49 pm
>> tucker: that's a good point. >> everyone of these instances, there has been back stories. >> tucker: here is what is different. if you have a dispute in the restaurant, if you order french soup -- french toast, i may bring you pancakes, no one goes to jail and no one gets beaten up. it seems to accelerate pretty quickly on airlines. >> it is called the faa folks. it is called the faa. there's a reason we have it. >> the reason is that this, to be partisan about it for a moment, this is the most regulated aspect of american life. this is what, if bernie sanders and nancy pelosi had their way, life would be like this on the ground. the airline cabin is the most hyper regulated aspect of american life. and you have no right. if you want to use the bathroom or if you -- >> you have rights. that is not correct. you have rights as the passengers. it is called a passengers bill of rights. it is actually a real thing! >> when i go to a restaurant, i

don't need a restaurant bill of rights. >> when you buy an airline ticket, guys, it is called contract of carriage. if you agree to the terms on the ticket, it is there. it is 36,000 pages long. >> tucker: but why -- i buy all of that. it is different because you are a business guy and all of that stuff. but when you see a fight in hand and say, would you move, no, you want, you are going to jail. that seems pretty authoritarian, right? >> if you listen to the woman's voice, the gate agent, the supervisor, she was like, well, this is how it will go down. they tried to coax them off the plane, coax them off the plane, and he just wouldn't leave. finally, they came down to the slash two options. i'm not saying it's right. every incident has been different. certainly, i don't think that that american airlines flight attendant meant to hit a woman with 215 215-month-old toddlern her hand. that was a bad situation. >> if you go and buy a blue car and you come back later and said, i would like a red one,

the store clerk doesn't say, we got this 36,000 page bill of rights, you are screwed. you'll be wearing the red card again for the rest of your life. >> tucker: we will punch you in the face. >> they do say to hell with it. the manager says, give him a blue card again. >> tucker: that's a good point. , your card can sit in the state, we are not going to send her to prison. >> and a paraphrase, that is kind of what happened. they were trying to coax that passenger. can i make a point here? thousands of lights every day take off and land safely with no incident. now, with phones come with smartphones, everyone wants their youtube moment. i am sorry, but they were videotaping that entire incident. give me a break. >> tucker: i don't see any videos coming up emirates or singapore airlines? >> the australian prime minister modi tell you. it's actually a serious point.

it take contest between a fascist and an impressive voice of change. it's bashing one candidate and celebrating the other. it's not just the apa. every american outlets does the same in print and on television, marine le pen is always described as a far right, her name rarely appears without that term attached but it is never defined in any way. that's because at far right is not a description but instead an attack. it's a slur managed to invoke images of goose-stepping soldiers and the violence it's a way to make someone unacceptable in a single phrase it's attempted to shut down the conversation rather than start one. is she actually far right, not on economics, not on social policy either, she wants to keep

religion out of public life in france, in america she might be called a center left except one thing. le pen is skeptical of francis current refugee policies, for that one thing she is attacked as a dangerous fascists, none of her critics even bother to debate the actual topic with her. that would take specs and preparation and they very well might lose that argument. instead they call her names and hope that's enough to kill her candidacy. with the help of a mindless and compliant press corps here and there, it might be enough this time but not forever. because at some point, voters in france will demand a voice in the matter as they will someday sooner rather than later. that's about it for us tonight, tune in every night at eight to the show that is this one and ending of lying, pomposity, smugness, and groupthink. president trump is still expected to speak in new york city, will bring it to you live it as it happens, good night from new york. our friends at "the five" are ready to go, we'll see you tomorrow.
